District served with lawsuit Taxpayers would be on the hook for damages BY ADRIAN MACNAIR Mission Record

The District of Mission has been served with a class action lawsuit from a group of residents who claim their rights were violated when their properties were searched as suspected marijuana grow-ops. The suit was filed in Chilliwack provincial

court last Thursday, and by law the owners of the 499 properties inspected are automatically in the class action unless they opt out. According to the plaintiff’s lawyer, the damages could potentially skyrocket into millions of dollars. The district’s deputy chief administrative officer, Paul Gipps, confirmed Monday they were served late last week and the documents have been forwarded to the district’s lawyers. “We have 21 days [to respond] as of Friday,” he said, adding he couldn’t comment until it has been reviewed by lawyers. The lawsuit is based on the highly controversial Public Safety Inspection Team (PSIT), a

program that started in April 2008 and inspected 499 properties based on electricity usage and RCMP surveillance before being put on indefinite review this January. One of the plaintiffs, Stacy Gowanlock, said he’s spoken to in excess of 300 people interested in joining the lawsuit, adding he doesn’t expect the district to back down. Gowanlock said the district is “between a rock and a hard place” because it has said the program had flaws and apologized to the public, so it will be difficult to argue in court that the See BCCLA Page 3

Two people were in hospital at press time Wednesday, following a collision between a police cruiser and a Ford Mustang. The incident happened just after 11 p.m. on Tuesday night, on Hwy. 7 near Bodnar Road in Agassiz. Abbotsford Police Department was called in Wednesday to investigate the incident, and said it was a Chilliwack RCMP member involved. The Mustang was driven by a 20-year-old male from Mission, with a 19-year-old male passenger. The vehicle was travelling in a convoy of cars which were heading from Mission to Harrison Hot Springs. The pair was taken to hospital via air ambulance and the driver was in critical condition on Wednesday afternoon. The passenger was in serious condition. The RCMP member was treated in hospital and has since been released. The accident resulted in a closure of the highway, so the RCMP’s collision reconstructionists could assess the scene. The highway remained closed until about 10 a.m. Wednesday morning. “Our objective is to complete a thorough and comprehensive investigation which includes all available facts and evidence,” said APD Const. Ian MacDonald.

Mission Fire/Rescue’s efforts. The wires feeding power to the neon lights were determined by an electrical inspector to be the fire’s origin, said Asst. Chief Blaine Odenbach. There was a similar fire at Chances in 2008, and this one was also electrical in nature. Damage was contained to the tower and fire crews were on scene for approximately three hours. Chances is located near the corner of the Murray Street overpass and Horne Street in southern Mission.

Firefighters extinguished a blaze at the Chances Boardwalk Mission building on Horne Street late Friday afternoon. Smoke was visible from one of the towers at the front of the facility as the fire trucks rolled up. Firefighters had to pull away some of the exterior building materials to get at the flame. The building was evacuated, but many patrons stayed behind to watch

No flooding is expected District of Mission officials are unconcerned about the rising Fraser River.

FVRD skeeter squad $100K over budget Best defence against blood-suckers is long sleeves and light-coloured clothing BY ROBERT FREEMAN Black Press

You’re not imagining things, the mosquitoes are bad this year. But not the worst they’ve ever been, says Dirk Lewis, the mosquito man at the Fraser Valley Regional District and biologist at Morrow BioScience. Morrow’s been chasing skeeters in the Fraser Valley since 1989. “This has been an extraordinary year,” he says, sounding a little wornout during an interview Tuesday at the regional district. “We’ve been going non-stop since late May.” “The mass of the mosquitoes is coming from the islands,” he says. But there is also more standing water in farmers’ fields this year, the result of “seepage,” he says, as ground water is pushed up and out by the high river level and with additional bouts of heavy rain. Perfect breeding conditions for mosquitoes. Morrow and a team of four assistants have been wading and paddling into these swampy areas using a bacterial product that kills mosquitoes in the larval stage but is otherwise harmless. A helicopter is used to treat larger

areas, but aerial “fogging” is no longer done. Also, the pesticide being used is “not residual” so it must be re-applied if there is a surge in the water level and breeding areas re-created. There are residual pesticides on the market, but none registered for safe use in Canada. All of which means valley residents have been inundated by hungry mosquitoes and the regional district “bombarded” with their complaints. “How can you plan for a river that has been high for the past six weeks,” said George Murray, the FVRD’s exasperated finance director. “We’re already spending $100,000 more than budgeted,” he said, and estimated the total will hit $260,000 this year. That’s not chicken feed. Lewis said there are various antimosquito products on the market, but the best defense is a physical barrier - long sleeves, light-colored clothing. He said the worst year for mosquitoes in his experience was 1999, but their numbers must have been unimaginable before the shallow Sumas Lake was drained and no longer a huge breeding ground.

The scourge of summer fun, the mosquito, is wreaking havoc on outdoor events right now. RECORD FILE PHOTO

municipality did the right thing. Mayor James Atebe has publicly apologized for the 216 homes that were inspected and were found not to be controlled substance properties, including a personal apology for 15 residences that were initially levied fines before being overturned in a review based on insufficient evidence. The district voted June 27 to draft a letter of apology that will be mailed to each of the inspected homes. Once the district submits its statement of defence, barring any settlement out of court, the plaintiffs would have to be granted certification by the court to proceed to a civil trial. It could take between six and 12 months to reach a certification hearing, said a lawyer for the plaintiffs, Alexander Markham-Zantvoort, adding defendants generally look to settle if a trial is granted by the court. “I’m not saying it’s

going to settle in this case. It may not,” he said. Each of the 499 households affected by a PSIT inspection will be able to claim basic damages for trespassing and privacy, which Markham-Zantvoort said would likely be some nominal amount of between $5,000 and $10,000. Added to that would be any additional damages as a result of the inspections, which might be upwards of $100,000 per household.

The lawsuit has the support of the B.C. Civil Liberties Association, which has publicly stated the aim is to compensate those hurt by the program and help protect the rights of residents in all municipalities with similar bylaws. “In this class action these are people who had no grow-ops and yet they were fined,” said policy director Michael Vonn. Whether the district compensates homeown-

ers or fights a lengthy court challenge, it will end up costing taxpayers, said Gowanlock. He said the three-year battle with the district to get them to acknowledge their concerns only began when they threatened a lawsuit. “It’s a little too late.” When the district refused to grant residents an appeal process, Gowanlock said the only remaining avenue was the lawsuit itself.

will cost the district an estimated $389.14 and in the unlikely event the Gorilla Gardeners were unable to maintain the museum garden, the district agreed it would take over at an estimated annual cost of about $1,000. Parks and facilities manager Kerry Bysouth said over the next few months the district will work with the Gorilla Gardeners to complete the project. The west side of the building has already

been prepared for planting, so the project is well underway, and other than a little help with excavating, volunteers have brought it to life. It’s similar to the rain garden project at Seventh Avenue and Grand Street where the district invited community members to develop a plot of land into a garden, said Bysouth. “I must give credit to Heidi.

The Mission Museum is getting a new 1,700 square foot Edwardian garden thanks to the efforts of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gorilla Gardener.â&#x20AC;? Heidi Smith, who along with other Gorilla Gardeners adopt public spaces for weeding and beautification, was cleaning up the museum parking lot when she came up with the idea. She approached the Mission District Historical Society April 28 at their monthly board meeting and made the pitch. The museum gardening committee was established and two months later they contacted Missionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parks and facilities to formally get the ball rolling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I enjoy seeing a clean, aesthetically pleasing town,â&#x20AC;? she explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes me feel proud itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not neglected. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of my civic responsibility.â&#x20AC;? The garden design was donated by Chilliwackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Peggy Jessome of Idea Garden Design and will include curved paths, an area for children and will incorporate woody plants, perennials, climbing plants, small trees and ferns in keeping with the Edwardian theme. Smith said the name of the garden is taken from the era it was built: 1907. It served as a bank for 40 years until it was relocated to its current site in 1947 first as a library, and then a museum in 1972. Currently the grounds have little more than a few straggly shrubs, rarely used vegetable beds and bare, rocky, weedy soil. Smith estimates sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need roughly $2,500, with volunteers raising $2,100 to date. The district will now spend $726.75 for labour and equipment costs in soil removal and grading on the east side of the museum. The plan calls for Gorilla Gardeners to maintain the garden, as it currently does for 10 other sites including the library, Jack Poole Harbourside Park, Griner Park rhododendron bed and Centennial Parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s north flower bed. Additional pruning

he said. Smith said the garden will give Mission residents something to enjoy and in particular the residents who live near the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downtown area that is currently being revitalized. Donations can be made to purchase soil, gravel, bark mulch and plant material with tax receipts issued for donations of more than $25.

OPINION

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

Strategy is vital One of the largest casualties of an economic downturn is also one of the most ignored – child poverty. Slumping job numbers and economic statistics, coupled with an increasing cost of living, has more families teetering on or falling over the edge of poverty. That means more children are living in poverty. In fact, of 15 developed nations, Canada is fourth worst when it comes to looking after one of our most important investments. Nationally, one child in seven is considered to be living in poverty, which means they probably don’t have the same access to programs and education to go on to live up to their potential. We wouldn’t let that happen with other resources, so why are we letting it happen with our future workforce? At one time, in the 1980s, Canada did have a national strategy to combat child poverty. In just a few years, the rate slipped from more than 15 per cent down to 12, and it showed promise to reduce that further. The strategy was scrapped and the rate increased. A new strategy needs to be revisited. By providing affordable daycare for parents, a balance of incentives to improve parents’ earning ability and social welfare, and dedicating an increased portion of the country’s gross domestic product to funding a national strategy, child poverty can be greatly reduced, as it has in other countries. Not only is child poverty unacceptable in a country like Canada, failing to address it is a missed opportunity to improve our nation going forward. - Nanaimo News Bulletin

Harmonized sales tax fixed a policy imbalance in B.C. W

hile collecting taxes to fund society’s services is considered a group responsibility, for the most part we pay based on ability. With income taxes we pay progressively more as our earnings increase, thus the wealthier can afford to pay more. This works reasonably well since it means that those who can least afford to pay for collective services are still entitled to the same standard of living. With consumption taxes, however, we have a more flat tax system, whereby income doesn’t matter; you pay the same amount on products and services as everybody else. Nobody seemed to have a problem with this concept in B.C. until the provincial government decided to unilaterally harmonize the federal and provincial sales taxes into one value-added tax.

Suddenly, it’s become an That’s simple enough. attack on the poor and those But what has people angry families who can least afford is the fact that some services it, or so you’ve that were PST-exbeen told by HST empt under the old Uncommon system are now opponents.

Broad-based consumption taxes curtail inflation, stabilize consumer prices and allow free market forces to work. The input HST tax credits have allowed B.C. businesses to expand, hire more people and recover from the economic downturn. It’s unfortunate that the HST has become a political debate, when it has very little to do with politics beyond the way it was introduced. But don’t take my word for it. Ask any economist, accountant or tax expert. They’ll tell you the HST is a more fair, simple and equitable means of collecting taxes for the high quality services British Columbians demand from their government.

DISNEYWORLD from

Certain areas designated as bike route unsafe for cyclists Editor, The Record: The article on the District of Mission City Page in the June 16 edition of The Mission Record concerning bicycle route signage looks to me like nothing more than damage control. I can only assume that this is part of the new communications strategy that council has asked the district staff to develop in order to highlight all the positive and wonderful things being accomplished in Mission. I think, however, our civic leaders are missing the point. If what they are doing with our tax dollars is so laudable, it would be fairly obvious and thus, a communica-

tion strategy wouldn’t be necessary. The bike route debacle is just another example of why the current administration just doesn’t get it. The bicycle route project was funded by government grants and local gaming revenue. As I see it, there are numerous deficits in the design and layout of the route. Many areas on the designated route have little or no shoulders to ride on, making riding difficult and dangerous at best. Bicycle symbols are stenciled on the side of the road and not on bike paths as in most other cities and districts. The placement of the stencils lends a degree of ambigui-

Cycling routes are a welcome bonus in the municipality Editor, The Record: Re: Bike lane painting a waste, June 9 edition. I’d like to think you are the only person that feels this way! I am new to Mission and frankly am very disappointed at the lack of cycling lanes. I came from a veritable utopia for cyclists: Victoria. Overall, I am happy here. The neighbours are friendly and chat and even borrow milk and onions. The recreation centre is for the most part immaculate every time I go. Recycling is as up to date as any city in Canada and even superior in some cases. People chat and are silly in the

grocery line up, and often smile and say hello. I was disappointed to approach two RCMP to alert them to some sketchy individuals loading things they had previously hidden in the bushes down by the rail tracks. They seemed indifferent and went on their way. Finally, community services for newcomers are friendly and accessible. I guess for now my only beef is the lack of cyclist enthusiasts and routes. Thank you, Mission! Anne Marie Kenmare Mission

ty to areas where riding conditions are less than favourable. If it was council’s goal to attract cyclists to these roads in the hope that they would be safer to travel because of the signage, they have missed the mark. I believe this approach to be misguided. Encouraging cyclists to use many of these routes places them at risk. It’s irresponsible to suggest that cyclists take a particular route that is inherently unsafe. You can’t simply put signs up and just assume that it will make an area safer for cyclists. Sorry, not good enough! Arnold Muir Mission

Keep dogs out of cars Editor, The Record: Again, on a summer day, a puppy of approximately six months was left in a crate in a car recently. The car was said to have had a temperature of over 100 Fahrenheit, even though the car’s sunroof was ajar. A dog could perish in 10 minutes, all the while panting and losing precious moisture. Here’s a test: Put on your warmest winter clothing to mimick a dog’s fur coat. Drive to your local parking lot, shut off the engine and close all the windows. How long would you last?

District gives to food bank BY ADRIAN MACNAIR Mission Record

District council has found a way to circumvent a tax law loophole that wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow it to waive nearly $16,000 in development fees for a charitable food bank. Under the Local Government Act and Community Charter, churches like St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic Church on Seventh Avenue are statutorily exempt from development cost charges (DCC) if council has granted a permissive tax exemption. But because the food bank isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t technically within the place of worship, it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allowed to waive the $15,764.05. The food bank, which paid $1,993.55 for a building permit June 7, asked council on July 4 if it could waive the DCCs. Although the district

Ron Leger is estimating that for every dollar donated to the St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s food bank, $25 helps feed those in need. RECORD FILE PHOTO

cannot do that, it instead voted unanimously to donate the full amount of the DCC costs back to the food bank once the fees have been paid. Mayor James Atebe noted the food bank is an essential service that operates without government assistance and

should be valued. A food bank has been operating out of St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basement since 1992, distributing up to $50,000 in retail food value monthly, assisting as many as 529 local residents each month in 2009. Ron Leger, a Mis-

sion accountant helping with the construction, estimates for every dollar donated there is $25 going toward feeding those in need. The food bank currently costs $2,000 a month to operate thanks in large part to volunteers.

The new two-storey building will accommodate the growing need, with the $250,000 in estimated construction costs coming from private donors and gifts of materials and labour. Nearly $50,000 has been allocated so far, mainly for engineering and building design. Mainland Sand and Gravel donated $9,000 worth of materials and Vantage Contracting has agreed to do roughly $15,000 in excavating work. Actual construction of the building is slated for September or October and Leger says he hopes the food bank can reopen in its new digs in early 2012. The district will donate the money from the 2011 contingency fund which presently has a balance of about $44,000 from an annual allocation of $100,000.

Iconic oily ‘candlefish’ nears extinction BY JEFF NAGEL Black Press

The Fraser River eulachon, an oily smelt-like fish prized by First Na-

tions, has been designated an endangered species after a 98 per cent decline in its numbers over the past decade. The listing was made by

the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC), which warns the outlook is “grim” for the small iconic fish that may

be nearing extinction. Eulachon, also spelled oolichan, is dubbed saviour fish by some aboriginals who counted on it to bridge over gaps in the salmon catch and candlefish by others, because they’re so oily they can be dried and burned like candles. Some B.C. First Nations rendered eulachon down into a grease that was carried vast distances along historic “grease trails – pre-contact trade routes that connected coastal and inland villages. “There used to be millions of them,” Sto:lo fishery advisor Ernie Crey said. “But they’re just not there any more.” COSEWIC cites a mix of potential culprits for the precipitous drop in eulachon stocks, including changing environmental

conditions affecting marine survival, predators and fishing. Crey points to boats in the offshore shrimp trawl fishery, which pull up eulachon as a bycatch along with their shrimp.

“They just jettison them overboard as waste,” he said. “There’s no market for them so there’s no interest in them.” He also suspects eulachon have been hurt by habitat damage along the

lower Fraser from industrial activity. Log booms on the lower river grind up bark and deposit it on the river bottom, covering spawning habitat, he said. Channel dredging, boat traffic, municipal sewage and chemical contaminants from farmland may also be factors, he said. COSEWIC’s decision will go to the federal environment minister, who will consider whether to also designate eulachon under Canada’s Species at Risk Act (SARA). Crey said a listing under SARA would force the Department of Fisheries and Oceans to take a hard look at fisheries that threaten eulachon, as well as sources of habitat damage, and potentially force corrective action. Eulachon populations on the central coast are now also rated endangered by COSEWIC, although ones further north in the Skeena and Nass Rivers are only considered “threatened.” Also now listed endangered is the olive clubtail, a very rare stream-dwelling dragonfly with striking blue eyes that’s found at only a handful of sites in B.C. and has been hurt by habitat loss and activity like beach recreation.

FREE! Irrigation and Landscape Assessments The best way to save water outdoors is to ensure you are irrigating efficiently. Irrigation experts estimate homeowners can reduce outdoor watering needs by 25% just by keeping up with irrigation system maintenance and setting the timer properly. Water-efficient landscapes are also essential to conserving water outdoors and this starts with good soil. Top-dressing your lawn and putting mulch in gardens will help the soil retain moisture. The next step is to carefully select plant material and group plants depending on their water needs, also known as hydrozoning. By converting your yard to a waterwise landscape you can save water, time and money. In July, the Abbotsford Mission Water & Sewer Commission will be offering free assessments to residents with irrigation systems and those using manual sprinklers. This is a one-on-one walk-through of your yard and garden that takes about 45 minutes. An AMWSC staff member will help you identify ways that you can save water. Go to ourwatermatters.ca to sign up for your free assessment and start saving water and money!

A review of how the province shares its gambling profits with community groups must restore slashed grants to former levels and curtail Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to interfere in the future, charity advocates say. The Community Gaming Grant Review, announced Monday by Premier Christy Clark, is to deliver a top-to-bottom assessment of the system and determine options to â&#x20AC;&#x153;create certainty and sustainabilityâ&#x20AC;? for affected non-profit groups and charities. It will be headed by former Kwantlen University president Skip Triplett. Many groups â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including Mission-based ones such as the Mission Folk Music Festival â&#x20AC;&#x201D; were outraged in 2009 when the province cut grants to community groups from $156 million to $120 million a year. That was raised to $135 million this spring after Clark took office. Susan Marsden, president of the B.C. Association for Charitable Gaming, characterized

the raid two years ago as an attack on non-profits, particularly those in arts and culture. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They decided they were going to cut out arts and culture entirely, cut environmental groups entirely, cut other groups by 50 per cent and give 100 per cent to their favourite charities,â&#x20AC;? she said. Rich Coleman, the former minister in charge of gaming, had defended the cuts as necessary to shore up B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget amid a deepening global recession and said the reallocations were geared to protect youth groups at the expense of organizations serving adults. Marsden accused Coleman of putting his personal anti-arts stamp on the decision and said she hopes the review ensures nothing similar can happen again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to get government at armâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s length from this,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the short term, we need to get all of the charities funded again to the levels they were in 2008. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the long term, we need to look at stability, at legislation that

enshrines the funding formula.â&#x20AC;? Marsden praised Clark for delivering on her pledge of a review and said the terms of reference are acceptable â&#x20AC;&#x201D; except that Triplett wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t report until the end of October. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if there will be any charities left to fund once they get around to putting anything into legislation, not to mention there may be an election in between.â&#x20AC;? Many non-profit groups are â&#x20AC;&#x153;on life supportâ&#x20AC;? after cutting staff and switching to cheaper accommodation, she said. More than two-thirds of the $1-billion a year in revenue that comes to the province from gambling goes into general revenue, with another $147 million dedicated to health funding, $82 million shared with cities that host casinos or community gaming centres, and the rest is shared with community groups.

The 24th Annual Mission Folk Music Festival begins next week, combining modern and ancient music from local and international performers over four eventpacked days. The evening concerts have been split into four separate musical genres, said festival organizer Francis Xavier. There will be Vikings and Celts for the Irish-Norse folk music, the international World Encounters, the soulful From the Hills to the Blues, and toe-tapping grassroots folk music in A Song and a Dance. For the Celts, several featured musicians are hailing from Ireland.

The quintet Caladh Nua strikes a balance between traditional and new Celtic music; Maire Ni Chathasaigh has been described as an Irish harp virtuoso; and John

Doyle’s rhythmic style and innovation has set new standards for the Irish guitar. Harald Haugaard, and Lorcan Mac Mathuna and Northern Lights,

meanwhile, present the Viking side. Denmark’s Haugaard, in particular, has been acclaimed as one of the top three fiddlers in the world. What’s interesting about Lorcan Mac Mathuna is they are a NorseIrish group that links the ancient music between the two peoples, says Xavier. “It’s not just Irish music. It’s the old-style singing that has a depth and a richness that is really grounded in a very long past and history, and explores those links between Ireland and the Danes and the Vikings.” In the World Encounters category, Xavier has booked renowned Belgian See CANADA Page 15

Mission City Farmers M Market k t Since 1996, the produce element of the Mission City Farmers Market has been sustained by a few loyal growers, including Marilyn of Edge of Suburbia and Penny of Rose Brier Cottage. Market personnel are also encouraged by recent responses from a limited number of other vendors, such as Meleeta of Wilde Wunder Gardens in the Mt. Lehmann area. The current vendor list exhibits additional positive signs. Last month I wrote of three young adults who were “…joining a new Canadian focus on organics and the third local venture that has come to my attention this year.” So we were delighted to see that one of these ventures is now thriving in Mission. Taylor McPherson of Ferndale Farms became a new vendor last

H th Stewart Saturday, and he plans to continue his involvement this season. McPherson grew up in Mission and has been attending UFV for two years, currently working on finishing a diploma in horticulture technology. When asked what led him to this career path, he replied: “….food security, the buying local and organic movement, self sufficiency, and I wanted a job where I could work outside and work for myself.” I have heard similar responses from this generation. McPherson’s venture is ambitious. He is growing romaine,

Asian greens, chard, iceberg, calendula, carrots, beets, radishes, turnips, kohlrabi, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, beans, peas, corn, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, acorn, spaghetti, butternut squash, sugar pumpkin, zucchini, a variety of flowers, and herbs. McPherson’s long-term goal is to expand to four acres of growing area, become fully certified organic, and move into egg and fruit production. Other news of “growing” is the list of winners for the C in B Awards Night on July 15 at the Leisure Centre. Doors open at 7 p.m. The public is invited to view several C in B members’ displays. Presentations begin at 7:30 p.m. Awardwinning potter and gardener, Jo Priestly, is the MC. Keep blooming, Mission.

But the feature attraction here, according to Xavier, is NorwegianSami singer Mari Boine, whose haunting voice blends traditional storytelling with contemporary rock, jazz and electronica. Though she may not be well-known in Canada, Boine is usually sold-out during international venues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Getting a ticket would be difficult,â&#x20AC;? he said, noting her career spans more than 25 years. The blues feature prominently in the festival with the prolific Dirk Powell Band, whose Appalachian heritage is imbued in deep-south Louisiana soul. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also Port Townsendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ragtime country blues-jazz band, the Crow Quill Night Owls; a festival repeat favourite in Bellinghamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gallus Brothers; and the Church of the Blues, colloquial namesake for the local Historic Dewdney Pub. A must-see is the actor-musician Jim Byrnes, simply referred to as Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blues man. Originally from Missouri, Byrnes moved to Vancouver in the 1970s, and has since won Junos for best blues album three times, and was named Male Vocalist of the Year in 2006 and 2009 at the Canadian Folk Music Awards. Xavier said Byrnes has the sort of â&#x20AC;&#x153;lived-in blues voiceâ&#x20AC;? one might hear passing through the heart of Mississippi. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be performing with Steve Dawson, a Juno award-winning musician and Vancouverbased producer. Rounding out the festival are several famous

Canadian and American musicians, some of whom are veritable legends. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Newfoundlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poetic songwriter Amelia Curran; the musical troika Dry Bones from Manitoba; Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well-travelled Matt Greenhill with the festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resident dancer, fiddler and artist, Matt

Gordon; and Washingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Robert Sarazin Blake, whose melodies of lost loves, old hotels and long, hot drives conjures up images of the roving folk troubadours of old. Xavier is particularly excited about Newfoundlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ron Hynes, an icon in Atlantic Canada, and known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the man

of a thousand songs.â&#x20AC;? His life was profiled in a recent 2010 documentary in the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) of the same name. It explores his obsession with music, as well as the personal costs of trying to eke out a living in Canada. TIFF programmer Steve Gravestock de-

scribes Hynes as having a â&#x20AC;&#x153;cracked and wispy voice [that] imbues his songs with profound emotional weight.â&#x20AC;? Perhaps best known for his song Sonnyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dream, composed while on Canadian tour in 1976 with the Mummers Troupe, it See LOCAL Page 23

Finance matters in the district To help you better understand the district’s finances, we will be addressing key topics over the coming weeks. In this edition we will discuss reserves and surpluses and why they’re important. Reserves are money set aside for specific capital and operating purposes, whereas surpluses are funds that accumulate when annual revenues exceed annual expenses. A certain level of accumulated surplus is required to fund operations and emergency expenditures. Reserves are important because they are used to fund vital infrastructure (roads, water and sewer systems, buildings, etc.) that will eventually need to be replaced. They are also used to fund new community facilities and programs. Reserves are like savings accounts that allow us to provide for the future without borrowing. For example, we

Fire safety for seniors

The two leading causes of fire deaths and injuries among older adults are smoking materials and the misuse of portable space heaters. Here are a few tips:

• Sleep with the bedroom door closed in order to provide more time to escape if a fire occurs. • Smoke alarms can save your life and are inexpensive to install.

• Develop and practice a fire escape plan. Be sure to include all hallways and stairs. • In case of fire, get out and stay out. Never go back into a burning building.

• If trapped, put as many closed doors as possible between you and the fire, and seal all cracks in doors and windows with towels or bedding. • If your clothing

catches fire, stop, drop and roll. Cool minor burns with cold water. For more information visit www.mission. ca/live and click on emergency services and then fire department.

Chamber CONNECTION

missionchamber.bc.ca

Walk through the open door

S

itting for the Äfth time as president of the chamber, I realize how the organization has evolved in its scope and role in the last 20 years. The opportunity to represent over 430 local business’ concerns, successes and challenges to all levels of government is valued responsibility of the board. Imperative to this is the chamber’s role to communicate positively of what our community as a whole has to offer. It is our belief that a positive outlook attracts business, new residents and visitors to our area. That will give our members opportunity for success. Recently, a long-time member came to me concerned about the negativity circulating about Mission. Their worry was the effect it is having on the business community. It ignited awareness in me on how I communicate about our community, how others talk about it and what those outside our community say. What amazed me was how easily we all turn to using negative words to describe what I feel is an amazing and beautiful place to live and

work. More concerning to me is how we don’t even notice sometimes when we are being negative and in some cases wear the negativism as a badge of honour. I realize as a long-time realtor in Mission, I market and sell Mission. I regularly speak to those interested in relocating. They speak to me about the livability, the beauty, the affordability and the sense of community that Mission has. I am lucky to be able to have a chance to look anew at our community through their eyes. I often wish I could bottle their excitement and share it with others. So when does it shift? When do we start to buy into the negative and stop seeing the potential? All communities have their challenges certainly and Mission is no different. Contentious issues come and go. What sets a community apart is how we approach the issues and are able to move on. I have long believed in all situations there is always a door to opportunity. Sometimes it is hard to Änd, but with patience and trust it will present itself in a less obvious way, not always

how you wanted it but nevertheless a possibility. Mission is full of these doors. Community organizations like Mission Community Foundation, Rotary (Midday and Sunrise), the Optimist Club, the Cedar Valley Lions and Mission Community Services. There are resources for employment, social development, culture, arts and business ready and able to teach, promote and engage all. Renowned events such as the Mission Folk Festival, Envision Concert Series, and Mission Raceway NHRA races. There are so many positive things happening it is amazing to me that we hear so much negative. It’s time that we remove what ties us to the pessimism and walk through the door of opportunity. I encourage all of you to start by simply saying one positive thing for every negative; it is amazing how quickly they really aren’t so depressing after all. Enjoy the sun and your summer!

Local What’s Happening folks’ music in Mission

From CANADA Page 15

placed 41st in the 2005 CBC Radio One top 50 greatest Canadian songs of all time. It wouldn’t be a folk festival without a few folks from Mission, which is why Xavier has lined up several local talents. Ukrainian percussionist Boris Sichon has lived and travelled in 40 countries, settling in B.C. in 2004. Sichon has worked with masters like Russian conductor Maxim Shostakovich in the St. Petersburg Symphony Orchestra. A former singer in the Russian National Folkloric band, Xavier said he has a unique collection of well over 1,000 ethnic instruments in his home. Mission vocalist Cathy Hardy has just released her first major CD called Love Shines. Formally trained with the Royal Conservatory of Music of Canada, she’s taught music since 16. And Ontario fiddler Jennie Bice moved to Mission years ago, mainly for her love of the folk festival. All three teach music in Mission, which Xavier says enriches the community. The festival begins July 21 at 7:30 p.m. at the Clarke Foundation Theatre with the gala concert. The main stage concerts at Fraser River Heritage Park start Friday at 7 p.m. with Blues, Bones and Quills, and continues Saturday at 6 p.m. with World Encounters and Sunday at 6 p.m. with Vikings and Celts. Aside from these featured singers, there will be three stages with various singers, demonstrations, audience participation, music workshops and collaborations between artists. Advance tickets are available until July 20, ranging from $45 for adults ($30 for youth, $35 for seniors) for gala and evening concerts to $115 for a pass to the entire four day event ($70 for youth, $75 for seniors). They can be purchased online at www.missionfolkmusicfestival.ca, by phone at 604-826-5937 or in person at Shoppers Drug Mart in Mission.

ENJOY YOURSELF All of us should eat and drink, and enjoy what we have worked for; it is God’s gift. This nice little verse is from Ecclesiastes 3:13, and when I read it, I immediately thought of its appropriateness and how it relates to almost everyone in our daily struggles to try and balance our work and play. Simple as it is, this verse just struck me right and made me feel good, because it was a scriptural reminder that we are all supposed to enjoy the fruits of our labor. I hope we can all take this to heart. If we feel guilt or some other negative emotion regarding what we have worked so hard to achieve, then our accomplishments may not be as enjoyable, nor is this what God wants for us. God wants us to be physically and mentally sound, and balancing our time between work and recreation is necessary to achieve this. This is important not only for us, but for our relationship with our loved ones. So, within reason and with some degree of discretion, we should try to enjoy the blessings that our Lord gives to each of us, and we should prayerfully thank Him for the enjoyment of life.

… God, who generously gives us everything for our enjoyment. Good News Bible 1 Timothy 6:17

his goal this year, he admitted. But after entering a qualifying tournament at Cedar Ridge Golf Club and Mission Golf and Country Club last month, where he scored a three under par and one over, respectively, the Dewdney resident found himself making trip plans for California. He regularly plays at Sandpiper Golf Course and when speaking with The Record last Friday, felt the worlds were going to be a good test of his abilities. Organizers are expecting approximately 1,100 golfers between six and 17 to vie for their respective age class trophies. Kraakman’s father Walter said his daughter first picked up a golf club at four, and has been playing ever since. She started actively competing at 10 years old, he said, but her competitive drive has been pushing her to really work hard at the sport in hopes of scoring a university scholarship after graduating Hatzic Secondary School next June. Check www.missioncityrecord.com for updates on the pair’s progress. Scarrow played yesterday, and results were not available by press time. Kraakman is scheduled to compete today.

Get your family into flyfishing I

n a press release I received Saturday, I read that the Orvis fishing tackle company has set a goal of teaching (at no cost to the person) 10,000 individuals to fly fish this summer. This is a huge step toward pulling the sport fishing industry out of its decade-long slump. Since late 2000 there has been a concern across all lines in sport fishing, regarding the low percentage of young people entering the sport. If we apply the sales ideology that each person influences 250 people in their lifetime, we can project that 10,000 introductions could influence 2.5 million people. The spin-off impact of this bold step

could be just what is needed to get our sport back on track as a family fun activity.

Support from coaches and parents lead to football success From RUNNING Page 25

and played for the San Francisco 49ers in the late 1980s. He did his college ball at the division one University of Montana. Clarkson’s UNLV offer makes him the first MSS football player to attend a Division 1-NCAA school. The former Mission Niners player has been with the

Roadrunners since 2009, and was quickly recognized for his strong performance on the field at the left tackle position on the offensive line. He earned outstanding offensive lineman at MSS last year, and was also an all-star in the AA Mainland Conference. As with many things in life, Clarkson said the support of his parents, and especially his three coaches — Jim Pearce, Kevin Watrin and Danny Jakobs — have enabled him to excel.
