Seniors housing stirs debate Meadowlands development moved to public hearings BY

CAROL AUN

Mission Record

A controversial development proposal aimed at empty nesters in North Hatzic is going ahead. Residents in the area have been fighting the

proposal for years, even before it was brought into council chambers for debate. The project, called Meadowlands, is made up of 11 properties, totaling 7.97 hectares (19.7 acres). The site is located across from Municipal Hall and bordered by Stave Lake Road to the west, Dewdney Trunk Road to the south. Moss Avenue to the north, and suburban properties to the east. The proposal is to build 94 housing units, mostly fully serviced single storey homes.

However, the area is designated suburban in the Official Community Plan, which only allows 22 lots to be built. Residents in the area argue the development doesn’t fit the neighbourhood, but the proposal has caught some councillors’ attention because of its uniqueness – a type of seniors development that is lacking in Mission. Last year council rejected a recommendation See MEADOWLANDS Page5

At knifepoint, boy drives for thief 12-year-old safe, train stopped getaway

HA ANGING BASKETS

BY

It was a wild and scary night for a 12-year-old boy who was forced to drive about a dozen blocks in his father’s truck with a knife pointed at him. Around 10 p.m. on April 30, the boy was sitting in the passenger seat of a blue Chevy S10 pickup near the corner of Second Avenue and Murray Street waiting for his father to run an errand. The keys were in the ignition and the youngster was listening to music on the radio with the window slightly lowered when a man approached and asked for a ride. The boy said he was only 12 and couldn’t drive his dad’s vehicle, but the man paid no attention. Instead, he reached inside the car and unlocked the door, said Mission RCMP Cpl. Raina Siou. The suspect pushed the child onto the driver’s seat and threatened the boy with a knife. Not wanting to lose his dad’s truck, the boy followed the suspect’s instructions and drove to Save On Foods at the Junction. The suspect stole several items from the store and left, but not before a loss prevention officer at the store noticed

The previous owners of the the pool hall had a licence and there weren’t any problems, said Mayor James Atebe. Coun. Paul Horn also noted there are a number of restaurants on First Avenue, where Snipers is located, and anyone can sit in one of those venues for a drink.

what he had done. She called police immediately and gave officers a description of the vehicle and a licence plate number. The vehicle was last seen heading eastbound on London Avenue. Coincidentally, officers were in the area when the call came in, and by chance a train crossing through the area halted traffic. “Officers searched through the vehicles in the area and located the suspect vehicle with two occupants inside,” said Siou. Mounties quickly determined something was amiss after some initial questioning and separated the pair for further probing. Around that time, the boy’s father noticed the truck and his son were missing and called police. Soon, the boy and his father were reunited. “We’re so proud of this boy for keeping his wits about him and staying safe,” said Siou. Mission resident Ryan Heatherington, 22, is facing 14 charges related to the incident, including unlawful confinement, kidnapping, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, theft and breach of previous conditions. He was remanded into custody, and his next court appearance is May 10.

“There are significant problems with the consumption of alcohol and I don’t think this will help the community; it will be a detriment,” said Coun. Jenny Stevens, who opposed the licence along with Couns. Danny Plecas and Terry Gidda. Owners of the pool hall, Cesar Morales and Mirna Guevara, are proposing to build a 35 square metre lounge inside the business where the liquor will be served.

Ladie Ladies were dressed in flapper dresses and feather headba headbands, while the gentlemen put on their best suits and an fedoras as they all raised money to support the Mission Hospice Society. There were about 155 guests and many ppeople got into the spirit of the theme — roarin ing 20s. While it wasn’t quite a sellout, the event ra raised more than $40,000. The final number w won’t be known until later this week when all tthe silent auction items are tallied. Attendance was down from last year, but tthe gracious giving of the community exceeded expectations, said Kim Skinner, executive director of the local hospice society. dir There were 74 silent auction items and seven T ticket items in the live auction. Two spontanebig ti bonus donations, a dance with Mission Mayor ous bonu

layoff James Atebe and three tickets to the Canucks playoff ars game on Wednesday, raised a few hundred dollars more for the cause. This year there was more support from outside de the community with people from Abbotsford, Chilliwack and Langley in attendance. “We’re partnering with other hospice societies and fundraising,” said Skinner adding a provincial movement will help get the word out and more things can be done on a larger scale. Hospice sponsors were recognized with decorative glass art trophies. Patrick Hamilton was voted the best dressed male and Kimberly Thompson was named the best dressed female. nd diaSharen Parkinson won the coveted emerald and mond ring.

Council denies permit for gravel crushing Neighbours’ noise concerns heard by council CAROL AUN

Mission Record

Students recognized

Council refused to allow a gravel pit on Caswell Avenue to crush and screen aggregate on site, because of noise and dust of the site’s neighbours. Council also asked for a traffic safety report regarding pedestrians, horse riders and vehicles, after residents in southwest Mission rallied against the proposal at a public hearing in March. “Where gravel is taken out of is decided by powers greater than ours, but where it’s processed, we can choose,” said Coun. Jenny Stevens. The proponent, Patrick Kerr, of- STEVENS fered some noise and dust control measures, such as a tree buffer, and berms, but it wasn’t enough for Coun. Danny Plecas. The gravel pit already has a permit to operate from the provincial Ministry of Mines, and crushing on site would reduce the amount of traffic on Caswell, said Kerr a month ago. But his operations on Caswell will be limited to gravel extraction. The hours of operation are from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday, and the permit only allows for the removal of 230,000 tonnes of aggregate per year.

Seven Durieu Elementary School students and their teacher, Susan Anotonson were recognized by district council Monday night for their accomplishments in this year’s Reading Link Challenge. The challenge is part of a Fraser Valley Regional Library program for students in Grades 4 and 5. Students work in teams of seven and read six selected books. They compete first in their school, answering questions about the characters, plot and setting, and then move on to the community-level competition through the public library. The winning team from each library is advanced to the final level, competing against students from across the region. The students at Durieu earned the bronze medal this year. The team members are Cole Barker, Christopher Dale, Jillian Pederson, Austin Rackstraw, Bradley Saunders, Kimberley Smith and Corrie Thirkell. “I’m extremely proud you belong to this community,” said Mayor James Atebe who presented each student with a certificate of congratulations and recognition on behalf of council.

to deny the application, and instructed staff to work with the property owners to bring it to first reading. On Monday night, councillors voted 4-3 to pass the initial reading. Couns. Paul Horn, Jenny Stevens and Danny Plecas were opposed to the motion. Horn said he was opposed to the process. He noted both sides have been before council and both sides want certainty or closure, because it’s causing divisions in the neighbourhood. “This property abuts Agricultural Land Reserve land, and it sets a dangerous precedent,” said Horn, arguing any change should have unanimous support. “There are too many unanswered questions... We can’t go forward without the neighbours’ support. It’s their neighbourhood.” The concept is good on paper, offered Plecas, who had a number

of concerns. “It would be better suited somewhere else with the right zoning.” It’s regrettable this wasn’t thought of when the OCP was rewritten recently, said Stevens, noting developers have been trying to build on this site for the past 10 years. “We did an overhaul of the OCP, and then the first development that comes forward challenges to change it,” she said. An inclusive community offers different lifestyle choices, but not at the cost of destroying another one, Stevens argued. “If we prevent something from first reading, we’ve blocked the process to hear from the public,” said Coun. Mike Scudder, who doesn’t think it’s an issue for someone to challenge the OCP. “When we have an application like this with some good qualities, the community deserves an opportunity to comment.” “What’s so threatening that we

can’t have this conversation?” asked Mayor James Atebe, adding this application is different than the ones that were rejected in the past. “We shouldn’t say ‘no’ to process.” “If we always forwards first reading, that’s the point of giving council a chance to vote on it?” said Stevens. First reading is like going through inspection at the racetrack, offered Horn. “I don’t think this is ready to race.” It’s council’s responsibility to make changes to the OCP when it’s necessary, said Coun. Terry Gidda. “If we’re not willing to look at it, it sends a bad message to the developers in the community.” Coun. Heather Stewart says she’s heard both sides, and now the two sides need to hear each other. A public information meeting will be set up before a public hearing is held at a later date.

OPINION

HST hurts sports

T

he provincial Liberals have taken great strides to improve the health of British Columbians. Resources have been directed towards getting people to quit smoking, action has been taken on junk food and there’s been a push to get everyone more active. But it’s one step forward and two steps back because of the harmonized sales tax. Virtually every sports organization directed towards youth is ringing alarm bells about the levy. It will mean higher costs for those groups renting ice in local arenas or fields for fastball and soccer. HST will also have to be paid on the purchase of equipment required for these sports. And as all of these groups are non-profit, the ability to absorb this increased financial burden is minimal. That means registration fees for minor hockey, soccer or fastball will have to climb. For some families, a higher fee for their child to pursue their favourite activity will hardly make a dent in the wallet, but for others, increased registration may make the difference between whether the child plays or not. Many British Columbians have lost their jobs or have seen wages frozen, and every expense is scrutinized over and over again. If it comes down to putting food on the table or sports, you know what will win out, and that is unfortunate because recreational activities are a crucial part of growing up. Sports not only promote exercise and healthy living, but they foster self-worth and teamwork, traits young people will carry with them for the rest of their lives. The provincial government’s move towards the HST could potentially leave a lot of children sitting on the sidelines, and if that occurs, the Liberals might as well scrap their focus on healthy living altogether. —Vernon Morning Star

Clean energy now a safer bet A

s the B.C. government was unveiling its new Clean Energy Act last week, a brown stain bloomed in the Gulf of Mexico, visible from outer space. The disaster on an offshore oil platform is shaping up as the biggest spill in North American history, surpassing the grounding of the supertanker Exxon Valdez in 1989. It will change the politics of energy in the United States and Canada as well. With the gusher beginning to wash ashore and estimates that it could take three months or more to get it stopped, it will become more difficult to portray Alberta’s oil sands development as the continent’s biggest environmental threat. The death of 1,000 ducks due to a brief failure of protection To measures around a Fort McMurray process pond won’t be making too many headlines in the next while. Electric and natural gas vehicles suddenly don’t seem like such fringe ideas any more. In California, they’ve been wringing their hands over whether hydro power from B.C.’s larger run-of-river projects is sufficiently tidy to accept into their air conditioners. This is in a country with 650 power plants burning lowgrade coal to supply the majority of its

domestic electricity needs. This silliness can’t last. Canada has 21 coal-fired plants, and coal is the main power source for Alberta and Saskatchewan. Ontario is working to shut down its four coal burners, while Alberta builds a new one with government funding to develop the financially dubious notion of carbon capture and storage underground. Here’s the gist of B.C.’s new Clean Energy Act. The third dam on the Peace River, if approved, will be the last big dam in the foreseeable future. Its capacity will expand B.C. Hydro’s ability to purchase more power from a range of intermittent sources – including wind and biomass – and increase electricity exports, not just to the U.S., but m to Alberta and Saskatchewan. The legislation also directs B.C. Hydro to meet two thirds of new demand in the coming years from conservation, up from the already ambitious goal of 50 per cent. This will be done in part through a $2-billion project to install “smart meters” in every home, allowing the utility to charge higher rates at peak times and give you a discount for running the clothes dryer late at night. The government’s critics focused on the impact on rates. The Site C dam on

the Peace, new power lines to supply the mining and gas industries in B.C.’s remote northwest and northeast, and a series of B.C. Hydro power-purchase contracts with private suppliers will all be excluded from scrutiny by the B.C. Utilities Commission. NDP energy critic John Horgan says this will mean the government will require B.C. Hydro to pay enough to make massive projects such as the Bute Inlet run-of-river complex and an offshore wind farm off Haida Gwaii viable. Private projects will get a subsidy from regular folks, and Powerex, Hydro’s export division, will turn into a sales force for the barons of private power, Horgan predicts. Energy Minister Blair Lekstrom is emphatic in response. Export contracts will have to be worked out first, and then B.C. Hydro will purchase power only at rates that it can justify through export returns. The B.C. Utilities Commission retains authority over domestic electricity rates, and that will protect B.C. residents from subsidizing exports, Lekstrom says. That will be easier said than done, and it depends on places like California being prepared to pay handsomely for clean, reliable energy. One thing is certain. Offshore wind towers will be an easier sell than drill platforms in the years ahead. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

YOUR VIEWS

HST battle shows public frustration with government Editor, The Record; I have already signed the HST petition and even campaign organizers to a local political event (the screening of The Corporation by Cinema Politica Fraser Valley), and here is why. I agree with those who say that the HST is better than the GST/PST combo. In administrative terms, one set of tax is simpler than two. Everybody gets that. The problem lies with how the tax was brought on by the Campbell government. It’s bad enough when you live in a quasi-democracy (although many would argue that Canada is now a corporate republic), and you feel that you are completely ignored by elected officials, but at some point enough is enough. This brewing revolt is the people saying “we don’t care if the tax is better or not, we want control of our legislative assembly again. We are tired of puppets pandering to

corporate interests and not the people.” This is what the HST fight is all about. There is something more sinister behind the HST. Nobody has asked yet why the feds want this tax. Some would say to simply get

must consult the provinces in order to do many things. Corporate Canada was scared when the prospect of closing the border came after 9/11. The solution was to be included within the American borders. Some of you will recall the SPP (security and prosperity partnership). Although dead presently, the idea is still there. Efforts like TILMA and now the HST are steps towards national unification making harmonization with the US more possible. In a nutshell, we are being led to become not Canadians, but North Americans. All this is readily available information and easy to get. If this is a democracy and not a corporate banana republic, why then not expose the whole truth? Why try to ram this in and give no explanation or accountability? Kevin Francis Mission

...the aim of the federal government is to harmonize with the U.S. and Mexico... more money. Since NAFTA, the aim of the federal government is to harmonize with the US and Mexico, thus creating an America union much like the European Union. Problems arise when provincial legislation impedes Canada’s ability to act. Canada

HST misinformation and lies Editor, The Record; I am saddened by all the misinformation and lies, that have been spread concerning the HST. The following information is not hard to come by for those who wish to find it. I suspect that anti-HST petition organizer Bill Vander Zalm may have an ulterior motive, as apparently this is some of what he does not want us to know. Our current “sales tax” taxes tax on top of tax, on top of tax, resulting in higher prices, less investment and fewer jobs. For new home buyers, a par-

tial rebate will ensure that new homes up to $525,000 will bear no more tax than under the current PST system, while homes above $525,000 will receive a flat rebate of about $26,250. There is no HST on previouslyowned homes being re-sold. There will be rebates of the provincial portion of the B.C. HST for municipalities, charities and eligible non-profit organizations to protect the sector from paying additional tax. For low income families and individuals, a refundable B.C. HST credit will be paid quarterly

to help offset the impact of the tax. The amount of the credit would be $230 per family member for individuals with income up to $20,000 and families with incomes up to $25,000. The HST is federal and as such, once it is fully phased in, the federal government will administer it at no cost to the province. The provincial portion of the HST will not be included on the following items: Q Gasoline, ethanol, diesel and bio-diesel when used in motor vehicles. Q Books.

Q Children–sized clothing and footwear. Q Children’s car seats and car booster seats. Q Feminine hygiene products. All other items that are currently zero-rated or exempt from the GST will also be zero-rated or exempt from the HST. (i.e.; basic groceries). The Social Services Tax is eliminated, reducing tax from 15 per cent to 12 per cent on liquor served on site at restaurants and pubs. Morris Goodchild Mission

New Canadians to qualify for OAP Editor, The Record; How many of your readers are aware of the proposed legislative change that would allow newcomers to Canada to draw full Old Age Pensions after three years? Private Member’s Bill C-428 was moved last summer by Ruby Dhalla, MP BramptonSpringdale, was seconded by Bob Rae, MP Toronto Centre, the former New Democrat Premier of Ontario. It received first reading on June 18, 2009, and could be brought onto the floor of the House of Commons for a swift and unheralded final vote in the very near future.

This bill is expected to receive full NDP-Liberal support. Is this a blatant move on the part of Ms. Dhalla to buy votes for herself and her party by spending past, present and future taxpayers’ dollars on such a fantastic giveaway? I should think so. And this at a time when Canada’s national debt has surpassed half a trillion dollars. If the bill becomes law, elderly immigrants can come to this country from every corner of the world, and after only three years, without ever having contributed one cent through taxes or payments to the federal

pension scheme, they can start collecting pensions the same as those Canadians who have paid into the system for 40 or 50 years. At the present time you have to have been living in Canada for a minimum of 10 years in order to qualify. Unfortunately the socialists and the red Liberals, as always, are prepared to spend money which the federal government doesn’t have. Readers should send strong letters of protest to their local Member of Parliament, be he or she New Democrat, Liberal or Conservative. And, oh yes, the Inde-

pendents and the Parti Québécois as well. They may also email the writer

HST not done deal Editor, The Record; The HST is not a done deal until the people of B.C. decide. Despite the government’s attempts to make it seem like the HST is a done deal, nothing could be further from the truth. They said the HST was a done deal when they signed the agreement with Ottawa nine months ago. Then they said it was a done deal in December when Ottawa passed the federal legislation in Parliament. Now, they’re saying it is a done deal with the legislation removing the PST this past week. But what can be enacted by government, can be repealed. We have known that part of their ‘trick’ was to spread out the passage of this new tax as long as they could to try to thwart your efforts to stop it – that is why our petition is to repeal the HST. The bill you are signing when you sign the anti-HST Initiative petition is to cancel the HST Agreement BC signed with Ottawa last year. By completing the Initiative petition, we will be forcing the government to either vote to cancel the HST Agreement, thereby repealing the HST, or put the question to a province wide referendum. And just so you know, the HST was implemented in Saskatchewan in 1989, and two years after it was in effect, it was repealed by a new government, and the provincial sales tax reinstated. It’s not rocket science – its called democracy. And the HST is not a “done deal” until the people decide it is. Some 85 per cent of British Columbians in poll after poll have said they reject this tax. The Citizen Initiative is our only chance to stop it. Nothing has changed. Our strategy to defeat this hated tax remains the same – complete the first successful petition in BC and Canadian history, and force the government to rescind this hated sales tax. If they vote against the people’s wishes as expressed in the legislation presented to them – then we will begin phase two of our plan – recall. Some have said it will only take the recall of seven MLAs to bring down the government. We believe it may take the recall of only one MLA to stop this government – the premier himself. Even though we have already gathered over 50 per cent of the signatures required to complete the petition in only three weeks, we still need to finish the job. We need to keep getting signatures for the petition until we have achieved the 15 per cent threshold in every riding. This has become about much more than simply defeating a Hated Sales Tax. It is a battle of the people vs. their own government. Bill Vander Zalm Leader, Fight HST

THE MISSION RECORD – THURSDAY, MAY 6, 2010

Anti-HST petition tops 300,000 signatures BY JEFF NAGEL Black Press

The campaign to repeal the harmonized sales tax now claims to have signed up more than 300,000 people across the province. Canvassers say their anti-HST petition has more than the required 10 per cent of voters in 44 ridings now, although sign-ups have been strongest in northern B.C. and are lagging in much of the Lower Mainland. The 90-day Citizens’ Initiative needs 10 per cent of registered voters – and those signatures must all be verified by Elections BC – in all 85 constituencies to be declared successful. Seventeen ridings have now also passed a higher 15 per cent target set by organizers to ensure a buffer to offset disallowed signatures. They include Skeena, where 30 per cent of voters have signed, and Cariboo-Chilcotin, Kamloops-North Thompson and Peace River North, all of which are at or above 25 per cent. In the Lower Mainland, Surrey-White Rock, Delta South and the two Chilliwack ridings are now above the goal of 15 per cent. Abbotsford South, Delta North, Fort LangleyAldergrove, Langley, North Vancouver-Seymour, Port Coquitlam and Surrey-Green Timbers are above the 10 per cent requirement. The lowest numbers are being recorded in Burnaby, Richmond and Vancouver. Organizers say the passage of HST enabling legislation by the provincial government last week did not quell dissatisfaction with the tax, which merges the GST and PST into a single 12 per cent charge, but instead stoked more anger. “People were hoping their MLA would vote according to their wishes,” said Surrey-based organizer Patricia Enair. “When [Liberal MLAs] didn’t, we saw an increase in people phoning, wanting to find out where they can sign the petition.” She said the campaign in urban areas has been hampered by several challenges, including the multitude of districts that make it confusing

to determine where each voter should sign. “We have a lot of people who either aren’t registered to vote or move quite a bit,” she added. Finding locations to host the petition has also been tricky in some cities, including Surrey. “Many of our commercial properties don’t want to get involved so they’re not allowing us to set up in mall locations,” Enair said. The campaign has responded by seeking permission to use civic spaces in Richmond and city parks in Surrey. Enair said the campaign will soon start to rotate its registered canvassers out of ridings with strong numbers and into ones where signups have been slow. Campaign lead organizer Chris Delaney said canvassing got off

wraps up July 5. Success does not ensure the HST will be repealed. The right number of signatures may force the provincial government to introduce legislation

dismantling the tax, but the repeal bill could simply be defeated or never called for a vote. If that happens, campaigners vow to target Liberal MLAs for recall.

Calling that a conflict of interest, Robertson withdrew from the prosecution of Heed’s campaign manager, financial agent and a third man in connection with an anti-NDP pamphlet that violated Election Act laws. Calling the prosecutor’s actions “bizarre,” Heed said he reached Premier Gordon Campbell in Europe Wednesday morning to tell him he was stepping down again.

Heed was sworn in by Lieutenant Governor Stephen Point on Tuesday evening, but after getting home to Vancouver he said he discussed the matter with his wife and reconsidered. NDP public safety critic Mike Farnworth called the latest twist in the case “extremely disturbing. “Right from when the allegations broke, we’ve seen denial by Mr. Heed that his campaign would be involved,” Farnworth said. “We’ve seen no acknowledgment by the premier of the seriousness of these allegations, we’ve seen no remorse whatsoever.”

The festival once toured around the province, taking its colourful costumes and unique dances to a different city each year. “We latched onto the Clarke Theatre (in 2004), and it just turned out to be the ideal facility,” said Gord Yakimow, who is involved with the Yevshan Ukrainian Dancers of Abbotsford, and is also the president of the Fraser Valley Ukrainian Society. “For this festival, Mission is ideal.” Dance troupes from as far away as Seattle, Wash., Prince George, Alberta and Vancouver Island all come to the provincial competition. Mission is a midpoint for many of the groups. In total, the event drew about 1,200 to the theatre on Saturday. Yakimow said it is a highlight of the year for Ukrainian dancers. “All of the troupes around B.C. are aware of this festival, and gear their performances around it.” The largest group was Kvitka of Surrey, with 75 performers, and the smallest was Mission’s own new Druzba dancers, with nine children. The event ended with the Hopak, the traditional dance of the Cossacks, with its high leaps, showmanship and impressive feats of atheticism. In addition to the dancing there were displays of colourful Easter eggs, textiles, and traditional foods like perogies, kubassa (garlic sausage) and cabbage rolls. There was also a display from the University of Alberta on the traditional Ukrainian wedding. “It is important to all ethnicities to maintain their identity, through language and through various cultural traditions,” said Yakimow.

The annual Ukrainian Festival brings colourful dance troupes from across B.C., Alberta and Washington State to the Clarke Theatre. They celebrate their culture and dance teams compete.

THE MISSION RECORD – THURSDAY, MAY 6, 2010

‘Living wage’ on the rise

Anti-poverty advocates are hoping more Lower Mainland cities follow in the footsteps of New Westminster and adopt a living wage bylaw. The Royal City now requires city employees and contract employees be paid considerably more than minimum wage to ensure two earners can adequately support a family of four with basic necessities, healthy development of children and participation in social and civic life. New Westminster’s policy – the first of its kind in Canada – is based on a level of $16.74 per hour for full-time work, calculated by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives based on 2008 data. The left-leaning think tank has just issued a new report for 2010, calculating that the living wage should now rise to $18.17 an hour in Metro Vancouver. It cites rising costs of food, rent, child care for the increase. “The living wage is based on a very modest budget,” co-author Tim Richards said. “While it allows families to escape severe financial stress, it doesn’t allow for home ownership, serious family emergencies, debt payments, saving for retirement or children’s post-secondary education.” Half of children living below the poverty line in B.C. have a parent working

full-time.

Check measles vaccine history

Paramedics warn of cuts Unionized paramedics say governmentled changes to the ambulance system will cut 14 ambulances and 36 full-time positions in the Lower Mainland. Greater Vancouver’s emergency response system is already overloaded, said CUPE local 873 president John Strohmaier. “Fewer ambulances and fewer paramedics dealing with a growing population and an estimated 29,000 additional calls in the next year equals longer wait times and more backlogs in the health system,” he said. “Patients will pay the price of these cuts.” The B.C. Ambulance Service disputes the claims, saying fewer ambulances and staff are needed to handle inter-hospital transfers since responsibility for that was shifted to health authorities. Eight of the 36 impacted positions currently aren’t filled. Officials say staffing levels are unchanged for ambulances that handle other emergencies – not hospital transfers – and that it makes sense to save money by contracting out transfers to private operators.

The mumps outrbreak in B.C. has prompted health officials to urge those who are under-immunized to get booster shots. More than 70 cases of the disease have been reported since the Olympics, when the virus is thought to have arrived here, and 23 cases are in Fraser Health. Anyone born in 1957 or later (53 years old and younger) who hasn’t had two doses of the vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella is urged to get another shot.

Talks on with bone docs

Fraser Health has agreed to meet orthopedic surgeons who have begun limited job action in protest of recent cuts to their on-call pay. Those doctors are paid $164 less per night of being on call and have begun sharing call duties across multiple Lower Mainland hospitals, a move that could force increased transfers of patients needing emergency orthopedic surgery. The April 1 change by the health region also means those on-call surgeons are only required to get to hospital within two hours if called in, rather than 30 minutes previously. Fraser Health CEO Nigel Murray is to meet the surgeons May 10.

THE MISSION RECORD – THURSDAY, MAY 6, 2010

Moped marathoner going across Canada BY JASON

ROESSLE

Mission Record

Mechanical know-how, some daringdo and the kindness of strangers is going to power a Mission man across Canada – he hopes. Cody Brownell, 22, left Sunday on a cross-country journey to help raise money for aplastic anemia – a condition which nearly killed his mother’s cousin, but is not well-understood by the medical community. But here’s the kicker. The Heritage Park grad is not going in a car, bicycle or even on foot. Brownell’s chosen mode of transportation is a moped; and not a new one either. His hand-picked steed? A vintage 1979 Moto B-cam 50V moped, tricked out with a rebuilt motor and other go-fast bits all installed with his two hands. These alterations drop the motor’s fuel efficiency (and help it top out at a blistering 60 km/h) but should enable it to survive the approximately 5,700-kilometre, three-month trip. The moped holds just over a gallon of fuel and Brownell guesses he’ll notch about 90 miles per tank, which means he’ll need to fuel up around 40 times. And with an average cost of $3 to $4

per tank, his fuel tab should tally about $160. Brownell, working as a bingo caller at Boardwalk Gaming Centre, has also custom built a trailer he’ll tow that can hold a jerry can of fuel and a few supplies. It’s topped with a solar panel to charge his laptop, cellphone and other electronics during the voyage. While he has a few bucks stashed away for the trip, his goal is to get across the country by counting on strangers’ generosity to fill his fuel tank. Where he doesn’t have family, the UFV student plans to camp. The germ of the idea for the trip came to him a couple of years ago but he wanted to ensure he could repair everything that could possibly go wrong before attempting the adventure. Brownell and his friend, Ian Low, are planning to video document the trip, but since the Mission man is making the trip solo, he’s going to borrow a few filming techniques from Les Stroud, aka Survivorman from the Outdoor Life Network show of the same moniker. If you’re interested in following Brownell, he will be updating his Twitter account regularly. The account is canadamopedtrek, under his full name.

Since its beginning 100 years ago, the continued growth and success of Abbotsford Agrifair is due to the support of local individuals and businesses. “We are able to celebrate 100 fairs because we have always been blessed with enthusiastic local support,” says Agrifair president Harry DeJong. That support has come and continues to come in the form of generous sponsors, enthusiastic exhibitors, faithful friends and hundreds of dedicated volunteers. “Without our volunteers, Agrifair would not have been around since 1911,” says Agrifair director and volunteer co-ordinator Cindy Rowell. “We have volunteers who return year after year. Some have been with us for over 30 years. We even have one family with three generations of enthusiastic volunteers.” Volunteering can take a variety of forms. If you enjoy working with kids, you can volunteer in KidZone, if you enjoy animals, Agriland may be the place for you. If you enjoy talking to and helping people, consider a job at the information booths or entry gates. All volunteers serve a minimum of two four-hour shifts, receive a t-shirt, meals and snacks, a volunteer reference letter and an invitation to a Volunteer Appreciation Banquet with special prizes and awards. If you are a business, consider becoming a sponsor or exhibitor. Each year, Agrifair enjoys

the support of over 100 sponsors. While many provide needed financial support, some simply help by donating needed products and services. Most sponsors are listed on the daily sheets and all are included in the annual fair supplement. This year, Agrifair offers two new ways to show your support of Abbotsford’s premier community celebration. Become a “Friend of the Fair” for $200 and you will be listed on a sign at the admission gates, listed in the official fair show guide published by The Abbotsford News and have the right to distribute your own promotional item in 1000 gift bags being distributed at the Main Gate Thursday and Monday. For details on volunteering, sponsorship or the Friends of the Fair program, visit www. agrifair.ca or call the office at 604-852-6674. Also new this year is the “Win Me” raffle – your chance to win a two-year lease of a Ford F150 crew cab truck, a Beachcomber portable hot tub, a return trip for two to any Westjet destination, a romance package for two at the Best Western Regency Inn or a one-year adult membership to all City of Abbotsford Recreation Centres. Tickets are just $5 each and available at the Agrifair office at Abbotsford Exhibition Park, at Magnuson Ford on South Fraser Way or anywhere the Agrifair truck is. Watch for it at community locations and events throughout the spring and summer.

Blooming begins in Mission A

pril showers continue into May, but there are signals all around us that “May flowers� will soon appear. The Communities in Bloom Society (CinB) members are doing all they can to make that happen by taking their planning up one more notch, and are moving from provincial into the national Communities in Bloom competition. Mission will compete against cities across Canada with populations from 20,001 to 50,000. The CinB committee is leading the way in 2010 with a beautification project of its own. In collaboration with the district’s park maintenance staff, led by Jason Horton, the western entrance gate area will receive a facelift this month, beginning with a serious clean-up. Then committee volunteers will join staff to plant and maintain the area around the entrance sign. Speaking of cleanup, I spotted Adopt-a-Block volunteers swarming several commercial areas on Friday. The tidy-up pace continued the following day. At the request of CinB, district park staff, farmers barket volunteers and local Morning Club Rotarians joined with 80 young people from throughout Rotary District 5050 in a four-hour blitz to remove invasive plants and other nasty objects from Lane Creek Park. Rotarians provided transportation for youth from the Rotary Youth Leadership Award program (RYLA) from Zajac Ranch to Lane Creek Park. These youth, aged 18 to 24, were spending four days at Zajac in leadership training. RYLA is the same

2010 Myrtle Evertt Woman of the Year BUSINESS & PROFESSIONAL WOMEN’S CLUB OF ABBOTSFORD & MISSION

The Psychotic Cyclists from the Mission Chamber of Commerce ride with traffic on First Avenue during the annual Heart and Stroke Foundation fundraiser. CAROL AUN PHOTO

Teams pedal for Heart and Stroke Foundation Four Mission teams raised $13,689 for the Heart and Stroke Big Bike fundraiser two weeks ago. Riders started the journey in the Safeway parking lot at the Mission Hills shopping centre, and pedalled along N. Railway Avenue, up Horne Street and west on First until they reached returned to the parking lot where they started. Spectators and supporters lined the streets to cheer on the riders. There were two new

teams this year who responded to the challenge put out by Curves and the Aldergrove Credit Union. The Mission Psychotic Cyclers from the Chamber of Commerce were dressed for business on top, and fun on the bottom. The Prospera Bears rode with their own mascot in the back seat. Both new teams brought more enthusiasm and spirit to the event. Ladies from Mission Curves raised $6,344

and there is still more money coming in. The Aldergrove Credit Union had a one-day total of $2,618. They also had pub night fund-

raiser after the ride and raised close to $3,600. For more information about the Heart and Stroke Foundation, visit www.heartandstroke.ca.

THE MISSION RECORD – THURSDAY, MAY 6, 2010

ary Celebratio s r e v i n n An Riverside College offers many programs, including hairdressing. The school is now located on Dewdney Trunk Road, near municipal hall, and will be having an open house on May 14.

HAIR STUDIO

Riverside moves up Riverside College has moved up – and this is good news for both students and job seekers. The school’s move from its former location along the Fraser River to its new home on the crest of Mission hill is perfectly in keeping with its lofty ambitions. This small college is on a mission, and is very successful at achieving it. The college serves residents of the eastern Fraser Valley — from Maple Ridge and Langley all the way to Chilliwack. Grade 11 and 12 students, and others, divide their college day between core high school courses, and studying theory and doing the hands-on practical training that earns them a professional certi-

fication in one of numerous technical and commercial fields. The college also encourages adults with outdated or inadequate work skills to return to brush up on core academic qualifications and be fitted with a skill set and professional certification that comes close to guaranteeing them a meaningful job in today’s competitive job market. Principal Sharon Kindree notes that the college’s reputation and profile is higher in neighbouring districts than it is on home turf. Riverside is succeeding as a place where modest achievers and even stragglers come to thrive in a place that is specifically intended for them, and which knows

how to get the best out of them. “The philosophy is the big thing,� says Kindree, “when a student walks through that door we do everything in our power for them to be successful. Also, we have got the balance of learning versus doing just about right.� The first thing immediately noticeable upon entering the college’s sparkling new building on the District of Mission’s top “bench� high above the Fraser River, is how quiet it is. Not just outside in the forest-like setting on Dewdney Trunk Road, but inside too. Mission School District opened the Riverside Trades, Training and Career Centre in a former auto dealership on

Lougheed Highway in 2000. By 2008 the institute had outgrown its digs and the district chose the facilities’ site, next to municipal hall at the top of Stave Lake Road, for an expanded Riverside that changed its name to college to reflect its emphasis on higher learning. The total cost of the project is about $7 million, as the facility expanded two existing buildings. The rich royal blue and maroon trim imparts a modern look, and the building material is faintly industrial. It may be on top of a hill, but this is no ivory tower. The grand opening and open house is set for 10 a.m. on May 14. For more information visit www. riversidecentre.ca.

Almost everyone appreciates that one of the most important services in any community is fire protection. Indeed, when communities were formed in the past, this was often the first service to be implemented. Initially, the service was often very basic, and usually included a plan to use buckets and a chain of people passing water from the nearest water source to the fire. As communities grew, more elaborate systems were developed. The reason was simple. A small fire could quickly spread and literally wipe out an entire town or city. Rome, London, Paris, Chicago and other cities have all suffered “great fires”, causing untold loss of life and property. Of course, modern fire protection is very different than when those large fires occurred. Like other communities, Mission’s fire department uses the latest in equipment, operated by well-trained personnel. Still, the goal is the same-to quickly control and extinguish the fire. To achieve this goal, one critical factor remains constant. Regardless of how modern our approach and equipment has become, the fire department still depends on water to put the fire out. Which leads to our main point – that it is impossible to overstate the importance of the fire department being able to quickly locate and use fire hydrants. Thankfully, most of the time it’s not usually a problem. But if you were to ask anyone who has ever experienced the terror of a fire, they would likely say that “most of the time” isn’t good enough. To ensure that it is never a problem, we must all play our role and follow a few very basic rules. Simple things like not parking in front of hydrants (you could be fined), not planting shrubs adjacent to a hydrant (the city will remove them, and you might be liable), and not placing any other obstruction near a hydrant, are all that’s required. We urge you to be aware. Check the fire hydrant near your house, and ensure that the fire department could easily find it, at any time of the day or night. You or your neighbours may one day depend on it. And if the worst should happen, everyone will thank you for it.

A learning experience at Silverdale Creek Wetlands Come and see what is new at the Silverdale Creek Wetlands Park on May 15 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. People from many different organizations have been busy building ponds, trails, bridges, bird boxes and planting trees over the last year. Come and learn about the importance of wetlands for protecting water quality, preventing floods and conserving biodiversity. The trail is flat and approximately one kilometre round trip – perfect for small children. The path is also wheelchair accessible for wheelchairs capable of travelling over gravel surfaces. Several different community groups will have displays and the Mayor will be giving a short recognition talk at 12 noon. The park is accessed off of Silverdale Avenue approximately 400m east of Nelson Street. Parking is limited at this time-please be prepared

Hello from the 40 Developmental Assets Working group! The 40 Developmental Assets are 40 foundational building blocks required for the healthy development of a young person. The more assets a young person has, the more they are likely to succeed and be resilient against peer pressure and high risk behaviors. In November 2008, a 40 Developmental Assets survey was completed by 2188 students in Mission. The average asset level reported was 16.8 out of 40 assets. On May 6, 2010 6:30pm – 8:30pm the 40 assets youth will share Mission’s survey results in an informal community workshop. We hope you will join us for this community event, share in some appetizers and beverages and listen to what the youth have to say in your community! RSVP’s are required. Please RSVP by Friday April 30th to Kirsten Hargreaves (Manager of Social Development) (604) 820-3752 khargreaves@mission.ca

Summer is around the corner and it is pruning time again. Please cut back the bushes and trees that are planted along the curb and sidewalk bordering your property. Overgrown vegetation can be a hindrance to pedestrians and an obstacle to visibility for drivers. This is particularly a problem at intersections where trees and bushes block signs and interfere with the view of oncoming traffic.

THE MISSION RECORD – THURSDAY, MAY 6, 2010

Why not take Mom fishing? I

t is finally May, the traditional beginning of our province-wide trout fishing season. May, might not mean as much today as it did back in the 1960s and ’70s, but the May long weekend is still one of the most celebrated vacation weekends of the year. This launch toward the high season and better weather also means it is time to think about the annual spring fishing derbies. The Alouette Lake and Greg Clark Memorial for instance. The May long weekend fishing trip and Je family oriented fishing derbies, have been making heroes out of Dads for longer than I can remember. This Sunday is Mother’s Day; how about taking Mom fishing? It may seem unorthodox, but it is different. The Sun Valley Trout Park offers three hours of good catch-and-release trout fishing for $25, along with nice picnic facilities. Think about it:

three hours of quality fishing and a barbecue, for less than you spend on a trip to the tackle shop. I can speak from experience when I say; “if you will taking the family fishing, the time will come when the family takes you fishing.�

With a young starting lineup boasting eight starters from grades eight and nine, Hatzic controlled the game from the opening whistle.

Scoring came in the form of a hat trick by Dani Chard, with a single from Bev Chard. The game was kept interesting with the goaltending of Meghan Lapointe who managed to preserve the shutout. With the victory Hatzic improves their record to 3-1-2.

Celebrating our mothers: Where it began Every May women around the world are celebrated for their sacrifices and contributions to the family.

With all that Mom does for her children, it would seem like the concept of honoring her would be ages old. How-

ever, it really wasn’t until relatively recently that a celebration of mothers was instituted. In ancient Greece indi-

viduals honoured Rhea, mother of the gods. Christians also celebrated Mary the mother of God. But it wasn’t until

the 1900s before the general mothering population was celebrated in earnest. Ann Marie Reeves

women’s clubs and what she called “Mothers Friendship Day.� It wasn’t Anne Marie, but rather her daughter, Ann Jarvis, who created the Mother’s Day that we celebrate today. Anna spent many years caring for her aging and ailing mother. Anne Marie died on May 9, 1905 and Anna missed her terribly. Anna noticed that many children failed to respect and honor their mothers while they were alive, and it wasn’t until after they died that these children recognized what they had lost in their parent. She intended to start a Mother’s Day to honour mothers. In 1907, Anna Jarvis attempted to establish Mother’s Day to “honour mothers, living and dead.� She started the campaign to establish a national Mother’s Day. Together with her friends, Jarvis started a letter-writing campaign to urge ministers, businessmen and congressmen to declare a national Mother’s Day holiday. Her efforts paid off. The first Mother’s Day was celebrated on May 10, 1908 and honoured the late Anne Marie Reeves Jarvis. After this initial celebration, Mother’s Day caught on. The Mother’s Day International Association was established on Dec. 12, 1912, to promote and encourage meaningful observances of the event.

This is the month to honour the special woman in your life. The one who sacrificed for your benefit. The unsung heroine of the world ... Mom. Breakfast in bed has been done. She’s probably gotten her share of blouses or floral bouquets. This year you may want to do something different. But what will that be? Consider these ideas to say thank you to your mother, stepmother, aunt, mentor, or any other woman you’d like to recognize this holiday. Q Spa retreat: What woman doesn’t enjoy a little pampering from time to time? Investigate the spas and salons in your area. Many full-service spas have treatments ranging from facials to hour-long body massages. They may even offer packages that enable you to group services together, allowing Mom to start her day with a relaxing massage and finish up with a new haircut and style. Q Dream vacation: Is there a place Mom has always wanted to visit? Maybe finances were tight and she put her needs aside for a family trip instead? Giving back may mean giving her a special time away. Cruise ships and all-inclusive resorts offer a host of activities all for one price. This could be an option for gifters looking to book a vacation that does not require a lot of itinerary planning or coordination. Just make sure Mom has her passport or other necessary travel documents and you’re set. Q Catch a concert: You may or may not have the same taste in music as your mother, but surprising her with concert tickets can be an ideal way to show you care about her hobbies and interests. Many bands and singers that experienced their heyday when Mom was spinning her vinyl records or popping a tape in the cassette deck are still pumping out hits today. And chances are they’re performing at venues around the country, too. Maybe she likes the adult-contemporary sounds of Michael Buble. Or she’s a country gal interested in seeing Brad Paisley. Mom may love the hard rock of the 1980s, and scoring tickets to a Bon Jovi concert will knock her socks off. Q On to the theater: Perhaps your mother would be interested in seeing a play or musical. You don’t need to travel to Broadway these days to see top stars in the shows you love. Traveling troupes and even local venues host popular stage shows. If you want to seek out the bright lights of Broadway, shows Mom may enjoy include “Wicked,” “Come

worn on Mother’s Day signifies that a mother is living while a white carnation is worn to honor a deceased mother. And just like North Americans, Australians celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday in May.

ruce Cockburn and his music needs no introduction for most Canadians. The audience at the Clarke Theatre cheered from the moment the Ottawaborn singer took the stage and began an impressive one-man show. The setup was simple, with large chimes on either side of him and the back of the stage was lined with his guitars. Understated in dark pants, a black shirt and vest, Cockburn’s fingers moved around the guitars and plucked at the strings with precision and confidence. Cheers came from the packed crowd the instant the talented guitarist strummed the first notes of an old familiar song. They sang along when he played Wondering Where the Lions Are. Some of these tunes were unknown to me. Having grown up in the 1990s, I’m more familiar with boy bands than Cockburn’s music. When he played Lovers in a Dangerous time, I knew it as a Barenaked Ladies hit, but it was refreshing coming from the original performer. Cockburn also introduced some of his new music – one so new, there wasn’t a title for it yet. Cockburn, took his time setting up on stage, casually talked to the audience and challenged them to shout out any thoughtful suggestions they might have. For a few minutes, I was lost in thought with the music. It seemed to flow out of the guitar in all directions and surround the room. I would’ve called it Crossing the Ocean. I imagined being in a boat on clear night gazing at the stars above and its reflections below, and listening to the crest and fall of the water in the ocean. Cockburn also joked about being a songwriter. He met a poet in California who strives to come up with one good line a day. At this rate, he said, he would only be writing one song a year. The veteran performer was inspired to write another song when he visited Canadian troops in Kandahar. His brother, who was a doctor, joined up and he agreed to go to offer some support. While he was there, he was invited to be a part of a ramp ceremony for two soldiers killed that day. In the song, Each one Lost, Cockburn sings about being on the tarmac and waiting for the precious cargo to appear. At the end of the night, Cockburn had audiences on their feet asking for more — and he didn’t disappoint. Cockburn continues his tour around B.C. He’s playing in Prince George tonight and then Trail on May 8.

THE MISSION RECORD – THURSDAY, MAY 6, 2010

Enjoy Tea for Two at gallery

THE MONTH OF MAY The month of May is a special month, the epitome of Spring, and a vivid reminder of the power of life. In the month of May, new life seemingly bursts forth from every conceivable crevice. Buds peak out on the boughs of almost every tree, while the fields literally explode with new growth. Eggs that have been carefully kept warm are now new hatchlings squawking for food, and their food wiggles out of the recently thawed ground after each gentle rain in the form of fresh worms. Nature has a way of providing for its denizens, and the month of May reminds us, as perhaps no other month can, that life is indomitable; it keeps coming back, no matter what. However, even though life is hardy and resilient, it should not blind us to the fact that it can also be fragile. A toxic chemical spill can kill thousands of God’s creatures, and it is obvious to most of us that human activity can sometimes have a deleterious effect on nature. That God gave us dominion over the animals should not be construed as the right to do whatever we please with nature. The concept of dominion is essentially modeled on the concept of lordship or kingship, and we would certainly not consider a king to be a good sovereign if he harmed his subjects for no other reason than his good pleasure. In the same way, we should be good stewards of the natural environment, and take care of it so that it will continue to take care of us.

Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth. R.S.V. Genesis 1:26

Travis Arcand’s piece called Tea for Nana earned first place in the student category in the Mission Arts Centre’s latest juried show. BOB FRIESEN PHOTO

BY CAROL AUN Mission Record

Local artists created 2D and 3D pieces for the Mission Arts Centre’s newest exhibit, Tea For Two. The juried show opened this past weekend, and the award winners were announced at the opening reception Saturday afternoon. Long-time artist Shirley Thomas won best in whow for her acrylic painting called Sunday Tea in Rome. The picture shows three elderly women comfortably seated at a table sipping tea and engaged in the kind of conversation only best friends could have. Carol Anne Almquist’s watercolour picture of two teacups

by a window and a jug filled with flowers was given an honourable mention. The piece is called Breakfast with Debbie. The student award was won by 12-year-old Travis Arcand, who created hand-built clay pieces called Tea for Nana. He made two tea cups, a teapot and a beautiful serving tray with a dragonfly. Travis has been working with clay for a year. He’s structured and likes things to be precise, but hand-building clay isn’t like that. “He loves working with his hands,” said Nancy Arcand, Travis’ mom and executive director of the Mission Arts Council. “It’s the first time he’s done something like this.” There were about 20 submis-

Wills

sions in for this show, including Nancy’s own creation, a handbuilt clay piece called Summer Tea at Sakinaw. It is also made of driftwood from Pender Island and copper wire. Every artist has a special memory or personal experience with the piece they created, explained Arcand, who spends summers in Sakinaw. Ania Kyte submitted glass art, Val Hundert pressed some tea on a doily, and Mady Pechler made an abstract piece called Green Tea. Other types of art in the show include pencil and graphite sketches, pastel, watercolour, and acrylic paintings, clay art, and 3D art. This show gives artists an-

other opportunity to be creative, she said, noting the only other juried show is the Peggy Staber one. The Arts Council hopes this new one, which will have a different theme every year, will help raise some funds to keep the centre running. Since the Gaming funds were cancelled last year, the Arts Centre has lost half of its budget. It was a $35,000 hit, explained Arcand. “Now we have to be sustainable with different things.” All the pieces on display are for sale. The Mission Arts Centre Gallery is located at 33529 First Ave. Gallery hours are Tuesday to Saturday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. For more information call 604-826-0029.
