Gas leak forces evacuation BY JASON ROESSLE Mission Record

Herar Lane residents evacuated from their homes Tuesday afternoon following a natural gas leak fire were allowed to return shortly after 11:30 p.m. Earlier in the day, an energized power line detached from the pole and fell onto a stop sign at the intersection of Stave Lake Street and Parr Avenue, said Deputy Fire Chief Larry Watkinson. The stop sign was buried deeply enough that it touched the six-inch steel gas main, and ruptured it, causing a fire to start, said Fortis BC spokesperson Michael Allison. Stave Lake Street between Best and Cherry Avenues was closed for hours, and Fortis requested all homes on the east side of Herar Lane be evacuated shortly before 5 p.m. Mission’s emergency operations centre at fire station one was activated to help deal with the evacuation, and Mission’s Emergency So-

cial Services volunteers were set up at the Leisure Centre to aid evacuees. Gloria Danielson and her husband, Jack, have lived on Herar Lane for 13 years, and around 1:40 p.m., they noticed a strong smell of gas outside and soon saw the BC Hydro and Fortis trucks arrive on Stave Lake Street. At first the couple assumed

someone had again crashed into the electrical box in the road curve, but a few hours later, a Mission firefighter was at their door telling them they had to leave the home. They stayed at her sister’s until the all clear was given. Allison said special equipment had to be brought in from Coquitlam to stop the flow of gas,

and once controlled at 10:58 p.m., repair work began. This was completed at 6 a.m. May 22. The incident also caused a power outage which affected 3,300 customers at the peak. Power was restored around 7 p.m. • For more photos and video, visit missioncityrecord.com

David Cathcart was listening to his scanner early Friday morning when a broadcast went out saying the Willows apartment building was on fire. A resident there for six years, Cathcart ran out to the patio of his first-floor apartment and saw the flames at the southeast corner of the building stretching into the sky. “I only had time to grab my cellphone and the clothes on my back,” he said Tuesday. Cathcart has been a Mission Record carrier for a decade, and said community organizations have been aiding as much as they can. “Emergency Social Services and the Salvation Army have been very helpful,” said Cathcart, who turns 64 on Monday, and figures while no fire touched his unit, the smoke and water damage will have likely destroyed all his belongings. The building will have to be demolished and rebuilt, said Willows’ owner Steve Yap. He’s been trying to help his tenants as much as possible, and as of Tuesday afternoon, 90 per cent of residents have found permanent housing. “I can help them find accommodations, and help them with rent, but they lost everything … and no matter how much I try, it’s never going to be enough,” said Yap, who learned about the fire at 3:30 a.m. Friday when his resident manager called. Yap was on scene in about 10 minutes offering to help, but emergency personnel stopped him from entering

Building will be demolished Mission Fire/Rescue responded to the Third Avenue and Ryan Street fire around 3:15 a.m. and found heavy fire shooting from the roof, said Deputy Fire Chief Larry Watkinson. Several residents were not even aware the building was ablaze, and firefighters had to break down doors to rouse people from their sleep, plus rescue people from balconies. The 50-year-old building provided limited access to firefighters and didn’t have a sprinkler system. But it did have a fire alarm system which was serviced in January, said Schmidt, and there were smoke alarms in each unit. The hallway alarm bells were ringing, but because the fire was in the roof, the wires were burned off, Schmidt explained, stressing on the dangers of an attic fire. “In older buildings like this, early detection is key, which this had,” he added.

the building. Instead, Yap rushed over to everyone exiting the building to put a warm blanket over them or offer dry clothes. He also offered his tenants a seat in his van to keep them warm and dry while the rain poured down.

Neighbours also stepped up and offered water, coffee and blankets, said Yap, who has been impressed with the help offered. Mission Emergency Social Services and the Red Cross also spent hundreds of manhours on the long weekend to assist the displaced residents. “The community is

amazing,” said Yap. “People helping people in their own community… it’s unbelievable.” Yap was also touched by his tenants as they hugged him and told him he was the best landlord they every had. “I thought they’d be mad,” admitted Yap, who says his building was home to some low-income

residents, but they are some of his best tenants. “I like every one of them.” Yap is also collecting donations for residents. Donations can be taken to Belle’s Sports at 33089 First Ave. They will be stored at a vacant store on First Avenue where fire victims can choose what they need.

A Third Avenue apartment was destroyed by fire early Friday morning, leaving close to 50 people without homes. The blaze was not suspicious, said fire inspector Mike Schmidt who took two days to complete the investigation and find the source. He attributed the fire, which originated in unit 16, the top floor on the southeast side, to “human failing.” The bulk of the fire originated near the sundeck, added Schmidt, estimating damage at about $2.8 million. “The damage was substantial because of the age of the building,” he said, noting at the time the building was built, attic spaces were not separated by firewalls, which is why the fire spread so quickly. Numerous residents and their pets had to be rescued from the building, but no injuries were reported.

Spring runoff water levels have peaked on the lower Fraser River, and the high streamflow advisory was lifted Monday for the river at Quesnel, Fraser Can-

yon, Hope and the Lower Mainland. Fraser River levels started easing on the weekend, after the river gauge at Mission reached a high of 5.6 meters on Friday afternoon, but the river and tributaries are expected to continue to run high for the rest of the week. B.C.’s River Forecast Centre warned that the potential for heavy rain in the B.C. Interior this week could cause a further level and streamflow rise in the Lower Fraser. Upstream of Prince George,

the Fraser River system peaked late last week, after cooler and wetter than normal conditions in late April. Snow levels were near normal in most areas of B.C. after this winter. The Nechako and Vancouver Island regions had below normal snowpacks, with moderately high snow accumulations in the North Thompson, South Thompson, Okanagan Kettle and Stikine watersheds. The Upper Fraser had the highest snowpack, more than 120 per cent of normal.

POOL SEASON IS HERE!

Q. We’ve become very concerned with the safety of our in ground pool, especially now that we’ve got grandkids toddling around. We’ve seen AUTOMATIC COVERS that roll on and off the pool on some kind of track system. Can these be added to an existing pool? A. Yes… in fact, I’ve been installing Aquamatic’s HYDRAMATIC POOL COVERS for over 8 years now. We often install these as part of the original installation of our one piece SAN JUAN FIBERGLASS POOLS, but they can be added to existing pools

with a bit of careful design. Usually, the cover rolls off the pool into an inground vault at one end of the pool. If that’s not practical, the roller, mechanism, and cover can be concealed under custom built bench at the end of the pool. We can even design and install covers on shaped pools. These covers save money on chemicals, energy, and water loss from evaporation, while dramatically increasing pool safety.

Q. That’s nice, but is it expensive? A. AQUAMATIC also makes a cover called the EZ COVER that has all the safety and cost savings of an automatic pool cover at a cost effective price. EZ COVER looks and moves like an automatic cover, but without the hydraulic mechanism. The effortless operation takes abut 70 seconds to open or close the cover. It’s so easy, you’ll use it daily to keep your pool safely covered anytime it’s not in use. For a site evaluation and free estimate on a SAN JUAN

6 The Mission Record Thursday, May 23, 2013

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

System broken

Another election has come and gone, and once again half of those eligible to vote in this province didn’t bother. And who can blame them? In a political system where the BC Liberals can win a clear majority in the legislature with fewer than half the votes, and thus dictate legislation for the next four years unimpeded, is it any wonder why the other half feel completely disenfranchised? When the Conservatives can garner close to 80,000 votes and still have no representation in the legislature, is it any wonder why so many British Columbians feel like they don’t have a voice? Of course, representation means nothing in the provincial legislature if you are a member of a minority party. Because every vote in the legislature is whipped, there is no opportunity for meaningful debate, and no chance for good ideas to be heard, should they come a member of the opposition. When a majority government consistently votes in the legislature along party lines, as every ruling party in B.C. has done for more than 60 years, then what we have is little more than a dictatorship, dressed up to look like democracy. If no meaningful debate takes place in the legislature, which is the reason it exists in the first place, and instead happens only behind closed doors by party insiders, why is the legislature even necessary? Something is very wrong with our political system, and low voter turnout is symptomatic of this. The fact is, if you’re not with the winners, you’re a loser, and your voice doesn’t matter. - South Delta Leader

Polarized politics a costly system O ne benefit of the surprising fourth term for the BC Liberal Party is that the provincial government won’t be subjected to another big, expensive ideological remake. Taxpayers are spared a bill of millions in severance pay for deputy ministers and other senior staff who would be purged in large numbers in the left-right lurch that has defined B.C. politics for a generation. BC Ferries will continue as an arms-length operation, with ferry commissioner Gord Macatee in charge of service levels as well as fare caps. The service rationalization that the government set out in the past year will continue. The NDP platform vowed to “position BC Ferries as an integral part of B.C.’s transportation infrastructure.” Freely translated, that means “suck BC Ferries back into government,” as one of their strident supporters likes to say. That would conceal the growth of the subsidy and facilitate the kind of political and union interference that resulted in the current

Q

structure. There will be no $10 million rehash of the BC Rail sale and subsequent sevenyear trial, to enrich elite lawyers once again. The NDP promised an inquiry for strictly political reasons, to drag their opponents through the scandal one more time. It was not a prelude to “nationalizing” the province’s train service, dream scenarios of the NDP provincial council notwithstanding. Costly legal confrontations over development projects have been avoided. The Jumbo Glacier To Resort proponents finally won a 20year fight for permits, and the NDP promised to take them away. A larger ideological battle over private power contracts has also been avoided. The BC Liberals have been caught by a sudden shift in power markets caused by cheap, abundant natural gas, but the billions in commit-

ments to independent power producers isn’t the fiasco that critics have described. If all those privately developed run-of-river hydro projects were owned and operated by BC Hydro, the Crown corporation would have to staff them and maintain them all for the next 40 years. There are differing views about the future demand for electricity in B.C., but it can only rise with industry and population growth. We will have a Seniors’ Advocate office, but it won’t be staffed up to duplicate the Ombudsperson’s role of m taking complaints. That’s good, since the Ombudsperson has become ineffective, labouring for years over a massive seniors’ report with so many recommendations it sank like a stone. We have 85 seniors’ advocates now. They’re called MLAs, and they definitely take complaints. They have staffed offices

B.C. Views

Fletcher

uestion of the Week:

Should voting be made mandatory?

in their home communities and in Victoria. When they’re not doing political work that everyone denies is going on in constituency offices, those office staffers try to help people through the labyrinth of seniors’ at-home and institutional care. A new seniors’ advocate can offer advice at the management level to help the health care system evolve, but only elected politicians are positioned to tell individuals they can’t have what they are demanding. The government should be adding more direct services, not more bureaucrats. There will be many arguments about the failure of the NDP to win against an unpopular B.C. Liberal government that is still weighed down by the harmonized sales tax and other heavy baggage. This election could be the beginning of the end for the old left-right model for B.C. politics.

Random act of kindness lifts the spirit Editor, The Record: We witnessed the fire on Friday morning. Through the heroic efforts of our fire department we have been told everyone got out safely, but wondered if some of the residents’ pets were not as fortunate. On Sunday around 5 p.m. we saw an act of kindness that literally brought me to tears. Engine 1 once again pulled up out front of the Willows, and two young men were pointing up to their apartment with sadness and concern. One of the firemen and a police officer got a ladder and went up to their balcony and en-

tered their apartment. It was only about five minutes later that they came out with a kitty carrier with their cat in it. To see the smiles on the tenants’ faces is something I will never forget. They even went back up a second time to retrieve two bags of cat food. Another 10 minutes later the firefighter came out again with another cat. I would like to thank our police officers and fire department for their hard work and once again say how much one random act of kindness can change two peoples’ lives from grief and sadness to relief

and happiness.

Bike to Work Week runs May 27 to June 2 BY TIM FITZGERALD Mission Record

For Mission’s Brian Miller, the decision to trade four wheels for two

made perfect sense. He could lose weight while padding his bank account. Miller quickly realized that by selling his truck and riding his

bike to work at Abbotsford’s Fraser Valley Institution, Miller would quickly improve his health while fattening his wallet by saving more

than $4,000 per year by not owning a second car. “I like the extra 119,000 calories I burn per year just getting to work, noted Miller. It’s

something I have to do anyway.” Biking the equivalent of about 3,000 kilometres a year, or roughly a trip from Mission to

San Diego, the decision is one of many “green” choices Miller and others are moving towards. Buying locally when possible and leaving a

smaller carbon footprint is the new normal. But for the first six months after Miller switched to two wheels, he held on to his truck. But the love of cycling made the decision easy. In the year-and-a-half since he’s made the change he has biked to work almost every shift, only hopping in a car on days when snow and ice make it impossible to safely navigate the roads. Making it a habit in his life obviously takes a dedication to which Miller was committed. Taking that commitment and sharing it with his co-workers seemed like a natural next step. When Miller learned of Bike to Work Week last year, he not only encouraged those of his co-workers who have the option to ride to work to participate with him, he also offered to ride with them to help them feel more comfortable cycling in traffic. While the health benefits are obvious to Miller, safety has to be a priority when anyone takes to the roads in Mission or another communities in the Lower Mainland. Traffic out on the streets can be busy, and cyclists are vulnerable. Miller emphasizes everyone needs to wear a helmet and visibility needs to be a priority. Riders must ensure they have a flashing front and lights on their bikes. In addition, Miller warns that drivers need to take some responsibility while on the road. “Give cyclists space when you pass,” he urges, “and remember it is motorists’ responsibility to only pass when safe to do so.” Miller is encouraging Fraser Valley residents to participate in Bike to Work Week again this year, which is held from May 27 to June 2 across B.C. Participants can register for Bike to Work Week free at biketowork.ca.

Anti-gang police publish first community report BY JEFF NAGEL Black Press

B.C.’s anti-gang police unit is taking a step out of the shadows and into the spotlight. The Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit (CFSEU) is the integrated team of 400 officers and civilians from 14 different agencies, including RCMP and municipal police forces, that disrupt and suppress organized crime around the province. Their investigations have cracked big cases, such as the discovery of an audacious crossborder drug-smuggling tunnel in Aldergrove and the unraveling of a massive international moneylaundering ring. The CFSEU is now out to capture a bigger public profile with the publication of its first-ever Community Report. The report can be read online at bc-anti-gang. com. Sgt. Lindsey Houghton said the aim is to make more people aware of the CFSEU and what it does. The initiative comes as the anti-gang force chalks up a major win — the arrest in February of three men in the murder of notorious gangster Jonathan Bacon, who was shot with four associates in

2011 outside a Kelowna casino. Houghton said the report pulls together a broader picture of the CFSEU’s work than people see in daily news media coverage. The report includes stories of officers tracking members of the Dhak/ Duhre crime group who make up one side of the ongoing bloody gang conflict in B.C. And it also releases intriguing findings on who is most likely to end up a victim of the gang violence that occasionally erupts in B.C. CFSEU researchers found the vast majority of gang-related murder victims over a four-year period had previous drug charges or convictions, and often violent criminal pasts. Most were gang members, not just associates or minor players in the drug trade, and a few were girlfriends or an innocent victim, like a man who was shot in Burnaby after picking up a Bacon brother vehicle to install a car stereo in it. B.C. gang-related killings peaked at 36 in 2009 before dropping to 18 last year. Victims are overwhelmingly men and their average age is 30, according to CFSEU stats.

Three-quarters of bodies are found near the victims’ homes or vehicles. Most (85 per cent) were shot, but eight per cent were viciously beaten, six

per cent were stabbed and one victim was burned to death. Also included are key risk factors for ending up in a gang and tips for

parents on spotting potential signs of gang involvement. Carrying multiple cellphones, having unexplained cash and making frequent brief trips out of

them from recruiting new blood, as well as to prevent gang violence. For more on the CFSEU, check out their website at cfseu.bc.ca.

New deadline for applications The District of Mission advises that the new deadline for applying for a 2014 permissive tax exemption is now July 15. At the May 6 council meeting, council adopted a new Permissive Tax Exemption Policy including new application and annual reporting forms. The

new forms are much more comprehensive then were used in the past. The new information is now available at municipal hall, 8645 Stave Lake St., and at mission.ca. Applicants can obtain an application form, copy of the Permissive Tax Exemption Policy FIN.31 and excerpts

from the Community Charter. The purpose of this policy is to help organizations identify their possible eligibility for exemption. The applications are for a full or partial municipal tax exemption for property taxes as per regulations set out in section 224

of the Community Charter. Permissive tax exemptions are a means for council to support nonprofit, charitable or philanthropic organizations within the community that further council’s objectives of enhancing quality of life and the delivery of community

services economically. Exemptions are awarded at the discretion of council.

Volunteer for Canada Day The planning for Mission’s 2013 Canada Day Celebrations is well under way. Each year the event grows, more attractions are added and the need for volunteers increases. Over 80 volunteers will be required to help with many areas such as pony rides, set up, greeters, face painting, take down crew and more. Mission’s Canada Day Celebrations will be held at Fraser River Heritage Park on Monday, July 1. The event runs all day starting with a pancake breakfast. To sign up visit mission. ca/leisure or in person at the Leisure Centre at 7650 Grand St., or call 604-820-5350.

Mission Springs Brewing Company is continuing to spread its wings and grow. Last year, they hired a consulting brewmaster, Mark Simpson, and a head brewer, Kevin Winter. Since then, demand has skyrocketed, resulting in a need to increase manufacturing capacity by 300 per cent. And the growth isn’t just local.

South Korea will be a great country to launch into with Mission Springs, Simpson said. The old-fashioned, North American western theme spans across the whole line of craft beers, and he believes it will be embraced by Asian consumers. “It has a wholesome feel to it,” he said, with an element of fun. And as for changes, while the Mission Springs is known for its local craft beer, they are looking at becoming a regional brewery and have created partnerships in the industry that are blossoming. “We’ve just hired two more people,” he said. “We’re putting money into our business. I think we’re going to grow like crazy.”

He has performed with such notables as Ferlin Husky, Tex Williams, Peggy Little, Johnny Rodriguez, and Ray Pillow.

In 1990, Steve was the second Canadian guest that appeared on To Be A Star on the Nashville Network and made it to

the finals.  Steve has since released an album titled Someone New.

Mission’s OAPO held a Spring Tea on May 11 at the Seniors Activity Centre.

Spring tea with OAPO The Mission Old Age Pensioners Organization, Branch 28, held a Spring Tea on May 11. We all enjoyed a fun-filled afternoon with door prizes, a cake walk, a bake table and we also raffled off many food hampers. The non-perishables and baking were donated by our members.

Everyone enjoyed the socializing.  On behalf of the executive, we would like to thank all who worked so diligently to ensure a successful afternoon.

There are many reasons why people lose their teeth, which can have a strong impact on your quality of life. What happens when you get dentures? Your chewing ability decreases up to 90 per cent; your food choices become very limited; and you have to get used to a soft and easy-to-chew diet. On top of that, dentures don’t last forever and just like anything else in life, require maintenance.

Regional district starts mosquito control program earlier than usual With river levels rising, the Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) is getting a jump on mosquito season and has launched its mosquito control program for 2013. The FVRD’s nuisance mosquito control program focusses on the largest source of mosquitoes in the Fraser Valley — those that hatch along the Fraser River corridor as river levels start to rise. The FVRD’s contractor, Morrow Bioscience Ltd., has already started to monitor and map known breeding sites. Floodwater sites are treated with a non-toxic bacterial larvacide that

FVRD’s nuisance control program focuses on mosquitoes that hatch along Fraser River. RECORD FILE PHOTO

specifically targets the mosquito in its larval stage before it can fly. This bacterial larvacide is an effective and environmentally-friendly method of controlling nuisance mosquitoes without harming other species.

The FVRD does not conduct fogging or spraying of chemicals that kill flying adult mosquitoes. While the program is effective at reducing mosquito populations, it does not eradicate them. Residents are encouraged to:

• check for and eliminate sources of standing water such as saucers under flower pots, bird baths, old tires, pet dishes, gutters, pool covers, trampolines, tarps, etc.; • cover rain barrels with fine mesh. For mosquito control inquiries or to report mosquito breeding sites within the Fraser River corridor, call 1-888-7332333 or send an e-mail to mosquitoes@fvrd.bc.ca. Residents can also follow Morrow Bioscience on Twitter (@morrowmosquito) or on Facebook (facebook/com/morrowmosquito).

New district manager starts June 3 The District of Mission has hired Jennifer Kinneman for the newly created role of manager of civic engagement and corporate initiatives. Kinneman comes here after working at McMaster University for the past eight years as the pro-

gram manager, marketing various programs and opportunities for the school. She holds a bachelor of arts (honours) degree from McMaster University, as well as a public relations certificate from Humber College.

In her new role, she will be focusing on raising citizen and business awareness and understanding of municipal initiatives, programs and issues, and on developing and promoting opportunities for public engagement and feedback. Kinneman starts June 3.

Some new phone customers in B.C. may be issued a number with the province’s new 236 area code starting June 1. The new area code covers the entire province and was approved by the CRTC to ensure residents and businesses have enough phone numbers. Customers who get a new phone number may be able to choose from existing 604, 778 or 250 area codes where enough of those numbers exist. If those options aren’t available a 236 number will be issued. Geographic boundaries that govern long-distance calling are not affected. Plans for the new area code were announced in 2011 in response to the explosive growth in wireless device use, depleting the supply of available phone numbers within B.C.’s existing area codes.

Brent Butt performs May 25 BUYING OR SELLING A HOME? BY CAROL AUN Mission Record

Canadian comedian Brent Butt will be bringing his laughs to the Clarke Theatre on May 25. Armed with a stool and microphone, he’ll be offering a solid hour of classic stand up in its purest form. Butt has an arsenal of new material he’s collected over the past year during his tours and is excited to share it with his Mission fans. This won’t be just stories from my childhood, he said, noting he gets his inspiration from dayto-day living. There’s also something to be said about performance pressure. When the spotlight is on, you find ideas or angles you wouldn’t get from sitting around a kitchen table, said Butt. “A switch flips on on stage and there’s another layer you can hit.” It will be conversational and observational, and there will be a short question and answer session which has been

Brent Butt

popular with audiences in past performances. Butt looks forward to performing in Mission, and he hopes his audience will enjoy what he has to offer. “Stand up is good on TV, but it’s nothing like a live show.” From a small town in Saskatchewan, Butt, who now lives in Vancouver, is best known for his work on Corner Gas, one of Canada’s funniest sitcoms that earned unprecedented ratings and numerous awards. Butt created the show, as well as wrote, produced and acted in it. Corner Gas ran for six seasons. Immediately after that, Butt created Hiccups, which was picked up for

two seasons. The Vancouver-based actor is now in post production for a movie called No Clue, which he expects will be released next winter. It’s a gritty murdermystery, says Butt, explaining it’s also comedic because the guy who is trying to solve the crime is in over his head. “I couldn’t be happier with the product.” As Butt’s production company keeps him in the mostly city, he has the opportunity to schedule stand up perfor-

mances once, and once in a while, he also enjoys going to local clubs with dark bars and low ceilings to make audiences laugh — like the old days when he was just starting out. Tickets to see Brent Butt are $40 each (plus facility fee and service charge) and available at all Ticketmaster locations, by phoning 1-855-9855000 or online www.ticketmaster.ca. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 7:30 p.m. The Clarke Theatre is located at 33700 Prentis Ave.

Beaver deceiver prevents dams from being built BY ALINA KONEVSKI Mission Record

In a landscape especially conducive to beavers, the District of Mission is leading other municipalities with its recent adoption of humane management practices. Although harmless, the prevalent big-toothed rodents have a habit of building dams at culverts, presenting flood risks. Mission, like many other municipalities, has a long history of manually breaking apart dams,

as well as trapping and killing beavers when breaking up dams is particularly difficult. But in the last six months, the district has embraced methods that prevent beavers from building a dam in the first place. “Whenever habitat and food is available, you will always have wildlife. By managing habitat, or restricting access to habitat, [the beavers] are going to relocate themselves, to find a place that’s more suitable,” explained Les-

ley Fox, from the Association for the Protection of Fur-Bearing Animals (APFA). The non-profit group approached the district with a simple, non-lethal alternative for managing flooding concerns associated with beaver activity: build a wire fence around the culvert intake, interrupting the beavers’ natural instinct to build where there’s current and the sound of flowing water. “They work awesome,” said Dale Vinnish, public works operations super-

visor. “We don’t have to trap beavers. They moved elsewhere. They’re not causing a problem.” The nine “beaver deceivers,” at $400-$600 apiece and built in one day, save the district thousands of dollars, because workers no longer have to pull apart dams. Previously, the municipality would break down two to three dams daily, several days a week, in addition to paying for the capturing and killing of about a dozen beavers annually.

“If we weren’t trapping, we were going in continuously to break apart the dams,” said Vinnish. Since installing the devices, no beavers have been trapped and site visits to the beaver deceivers only happens monthly to check for blockage. Similarly, Silverdale Creek Wetlands has just built its first current diversion system. “The problem is, with an area like Silverdale Creek Wetlands, it’s so heavily human impacted,

that we’re impacting the predators of beavers … So the beaver population tends to grow fairly well,” said Stave Valley Salmonid Enhancement Society’s Jim Taylor. With its tangle of small waterways, the wetlands offer prime viewing for beavers, birds, and other wildlife, but pose environmental management challenges. To prevent beavers from raising the water level by damming, a large wooden box with wire mesh was installed where a pond flows out to a river that disrupts the current, and confuses the beaver. The beaver

doesn’t build a dam, because he can’t figure out where to do it. Meanwhile, fish can still pass through. “Mission has been a true success story for us here in the Lower Mainland,” said Fox. “They’ve certainly set an example for the rest of Metro Vancouver.” AFPA volunteers check on the new water flow devices, and freely consults with municipalities, farmers, and other groups on nonlethal, long-term methods of managing animal populations, including beavers, coyotes, and raccoons.

While there are many different types of humor, some good and some bad, one of the things we too often find humor in is making fun of others, or in ordinary parlance, making others the butt of our jokes. This type of humor is usually an exercise in hostility, and the person who is the butt of the joke rarely fails to perceive that the joke is a thinly veiled attack in which they are the object of contempt or ridicule. When this person’s feeling are hurt, it is common for the offending party to say they were just kidding, as if this somehow undoes the damage. Saying that we were just kidding only adds insult to injury, and if the person being made fun of doesn’t laugh it off after being told this, they are often considered to be overly sensitive. Even jokes which don’t single out a particular person can be hurtful to others, because they single out whole classes of people as objects of ridicule. Racist and sexist jokes fall into this category, as do dumb blonde jokes; blondes justifiably take offense at these jokes, because they realize that the insinuation of the joke is that all blondes are dumb. We would do well to hold our tongue when we have something funny to say at someone else’s expense. And, if we have hurt someone’s feeling with a joke at their expense, instead of saying, “Just kidding,” we should offer up a sincere apology.

Several desirable features in Kitimat refinery proposal I

first heard of the concept of a refinery in Kitimat from David Black a number of years ago. At the time I was skeptical of its chances. My initially negative attitude was based mainly on my experience of 10 years service on the board of directors of Imperial Oil. Since I was accustomed to the discussion of petroleum economics centered in Calgary, I saw no need for a refinery in Kitimat. That attitude was based on the fact that there had not been a new refinery built in North America in many years. And any needed increase in

petroleum production was achieved by expansion of existing refineries throughout North America. But after my service with Imperial Oil, I went on to serve four years at Canfor which led to my nine visits to China in search of lumber markets. My exposure to the phenomenal expansion of China’s economy opened my eyes to the true merit of the Kitimat refinery concept. It made me realize that it would not be just another refinery relying on the North America market but rather a refinery that would supply the vast appetite

of China for petroleum products. The challenge will be to draw the attention of Asian investors who would see the value to this investment. It appears that David Black, after many years of effort, is nearing an agreement that could provide the vast capital infusion needed to make this refinery initiative a reality. The appetite for oil products for all Asia will continue to grow and the Kitimat refinery is ideally situated to take advantage. Asian countries, especially China, are very interested in securing

sustainable supply of resources that will flow freely without undue trade barriers like surprises with taxes, regulations or tariffs. Canada has a good reputation as a free trade country that can be relied on as a dependable source of supply. Now is a very opportune time to attract the vast investment needed to make the Kitimat refinery go ahead. David Black, with his years of diligence, deserves our appreciation for displaying the foresight and courage to invest his time, money and reputation to help bring along this huge initiative.

DEWDNEY TRUNK ROAD CONSTRUCTION May 21, 2013 to October 31, 2013

To meet the demand for electricity and improved reliability, BC Hydro will be making upgrades to the electrical system along Dewdney Trunk Road—from 232nd Street to the Stave Falls Dam. To help minimise impacts, the project has been divided into two phases:

on both sides of the political aisle that address this as a political issue. And I would disagree with both. This is a project that can be attractive to all political stripes. Trade unions would see a significant increase in jobs and memberships. Hospitals and schools across the province would see an improvement in government funding. Business activity especially in the challenged north west BC would be very positively impacted. And those with a concern for the threat of marine spills would see a significantly reduced exposure for the environment. Based on the huge positive impact this initiative could have on B.C., I think the question should not be if we want it, but rather, how can we help make sure that the petroleum world sees this as an attractive way to invest billions of shareholder capital.

Giving Gardens encourages and supports Mission gardeners in growing additional produce for local food banks and meal programs. Giving Gardens come in all shapes and sizes — backyard gardens, an extra row in an individual plot, a plot dedicated solely to growing for food programs, etc. — but the goal remains to engage volunteers in growing fresh food for families and individuals living on limited incomes. “Gardeners are a valuable community resource, and in Mission we’re blessed to have a fruitful growing season and many gardens,” says MFAN coordinator Brenna Maag. “By sharing fresh, local and quality produce with food banks and meal programs, gardeners give back to their community and increase access to nutrient-rich foods.” All the Mission food programs that accept fresh produce, including contact information, and best hours to donate is available on the bottom of the MFAN webpage: lincsociety.bc.ca/ programs/mission-foodaccess-network-mfan Some of the organizations benefiting from the program are Mission Friendship Centre, Mission Community Services Food Bank, St. Joseph’s Food Bank, Hope Central, New Heights and Grace Station.

Believe it at fortisbc.com/calculator. *These are approximate savings based on the difference between annual natural gas and electricity costs for space and water heating of a 2,300 square-foot house with average insulation and four occupants in the FortisBC Lower Mainland service area. Calculation compared standard-efficiency natural gas furnace and large storage tank water heater with electric furnace and equivalent water heater and is based on FortisBC natural gas rates as of May 2013 ($9.35/GJ) and electricity rates in the service area identified (Tier 1 and 2: $0.071 and $0.109 per kWh).
