Still hope on the waterfront BY

NEIL CORBETT

Mission Record

There is still hope for Sturgeons on the Fraser. Monday will bring a new motion to Mission council, aimed at saving the Sturgeons on the Fraser waterfront development. At its Sept. 7 meeting council passed a motion to grant developer Howard Meakin’s development proposal first and second reading, but also requiring Meakin to either buy the uplands property he needs for parking, or secure a temporary use agreement with the owner. Meakin had warned the district that he does not want to purchase the property, at an estimated cost of $1.5 million, prior to having his development application approved by the municipality. Otherwise, he could be left holding

a contaminated piece of land he would have no use for. And, he said he has not been able to get a temporary use permit for the land, the 1.6 acre former Meeker Cedar site. Coun. Jenny Stevens said the motion council passed will kill the development, and served notice she will make a motion to rescind it. Council voted 4-3 for the original motion, so she will need only one councillor to change their stance, and vote to send Meakin’s development application to public hearings. Meakin told The Record as long as the receiver for the Meeker site is aware that the District of Mission is interested in the property they won’t sign off on a temporary use permit, because they would lose a potential buyer. However, this week the district issued a press release saying it “has no intention to compete against any developer for the purchase of said

property,” (see city ad page 27 for complete statement). Whether this changes the situation with the property holder remains to be seen, but in view of the statement, Meakin will again ask the receiver for a temporary use permit, which would allow his development application to proceed. “We’ll play it out, and see which way it’s going to go,” said Meakin. “But it’s getting down to the wire.” Mayor James Atebe said the district issued the statement to clarify that since April 25 the municipality has no interest in the former Meeker Cedar site, and will not compete with Meakin for the land. “There was never competition,” he said. Atebe said by granting first and second reading “council has shown a very strong signal to him we are interested in his ideas.”

Sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite Welton Towers struggling with persistent pests BY

LORENE KEITCH

Mission Record

John Heist has had it. He cannot take another bite, another middle-ofthe-night nip, from miniscule bugs that have invaded his life. Heist is one of dozens of Welton Towers residents who have been plagued by bed bugs and he has had enough. “I first noticed the problem almost a year ago,” Heist told The Record last week. He sprays bug spray underneath his bed every day as well as on his lounge chair but fears the treatment, which does not seem to be helping, is making his COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) worse. “I have a breathing problem, and all these chemicals spraying under my bed – I’m afraid these toxins are affecting my health,” he said. Tricia Schweers is the tenant services manager for Welton Towers, a 60-unit apartment building for senior citizens with low incomes. She said whenever bed bugs are reported in a unit, they call a pest management

company to come spray the unit and provide information to tenants on how to keep the bugs at bay. She does not know how long bed bugs have been an issue at Welton Towers, but says it has been an issue for at least a year. “It has been an ongoing concern,” she said Monday in a phone interview. “We really try to keep up with the maintenance and bring pest control in (when bed bugs are reported).” But she said it is a challenge to stay on top of the problem. Many tenants bring in used furniture, clothing and even bedding that could be carrying bed bugs. They have even seen cases

where a tenant will place by the garbage bin a piece of furniture infested with bed bugs, only to have another tenant pick up the item and bring it to their own unit. Abbotsford-Mission MLA Randy Hawes said he is aware of the issue and has been in discussions with the board that oversees Welton Towers the Mission and District Senior Citizen’s Housing Association - and with BC Housing about the building. “I have talked to the board there, and they are very concerned about the bed bugs,” he said However, he sees an issue with the lack of funding for even basic repairs at Welton Towers, let alone

continued treatment of bed bugs. Hawes said BC Housing conducted a study and found approximately $1 million worth of urgent repairs are needed for the building, including all new windows and replacement of plumbing. But with the low rent rates, it is almost impossible to keep up with regular maintenance let alone renovations or extensive spraying. He reported the society has spent more than $25,000 trying to fix the problem. “I’m very empathetic to the problem the society has,” said Hawes. “I have been pushing BC Housing to step in and do something about it.” It is difficult to calculate how big of a problem Mission has with bed bugs. Fraser Health does not track the rates of bed bugs because they are considered a nuisance, not a viable health threat. But Sean Rollo would beg to differ. He is the branch manager for Orkin PCO Services, a pest management company that was contracted by Welton Towers to come in and deal with the bug problem. “It is very much a mental health issue,” said Rollo in a phone interview. He said bed bugs can cause a person to suffer from insomnia, which can compound other health problems. According to BC HealthLink, public health officials still have a level of concern about this growing problem due to the possibility of secondary infections from scratching

the area of the bite. Rollo said there has certainly been an increase in the number of calls to his Burnaby-based office over the past few years. They are not the easiest pest to get rid of given their tendency to hide well in small spaces. “The bugs are very hardy, can fit into small cracks and crevices and can multiply quickly,” he explained. He chalked the increase up to the change in regulations for pest management in B.C. Companies used to do preventative spraying for cockroaches, a big issue in B.C. up to 10 or 15 years ago. Now they use a bait method for the roaches that bed bugs do not eat, and there also needs to be evidence of a bug problem for spraying to take place. “It’s more environmentally friendly this way, it makes sense and we’re using a lot less products by doing it in this manner,” said Rollo. But it does lead to an increase in bed bugs. As for Heist, he would like to move into another low-income housing unit and has applications into two other places. But he has yet to hear back from either location and says he has no other option right now but to stay at Welton Towers. “I don’t know what to do,” he said as he searched for the bed bugs that often travel with him and like to hide in the folds of his jacket. Finding one quickly, he squished it like a pro, looked up, and sighed. “I don’t know what can be done about it.”

Identifying, avoiding and getting rid of bed bugs How to identify a bed bug:

Assessing your home

The common bed bug is a small, reddishbrown insect. Bed bugs are oval-shaped with flattened bodies. The size of a bed bug is 5-7 mm long or 3/8 of an inch usually no bigger than lady bugs. Their bite is similar to being bitten by a mosquito it is painless and may results in a small, red, itchy bump. However, many people have no reaction at all. Bed bugs cannot fly and prefer to hide close to their hosts when not feeding. Bed bugs can live for up to a year without feeding. They can be found in apartments, hotels, homes, shelters, and student dormitories. Bed bugs can also hide on clothing or in luggage when you travel and can be brought to places like your home or hotel.

Although bed bugs can move quickly, if you can find them it should be fairly easy to collect one for identification. During the day, bed bugs tend to hide close to where they feed for example, where people sleep. Bed bugs do not have nests, but they do tend to gather and hide in routine places. If bed bugs are present, there will be dark spotting and staining on your sheets, mattress, pillow, carpets, and clothing. The staining is from their excrement and blood from crushed insects that have fed.

Prevention: The best way to prevent bed bugs is to keep them out of your home in the first place. Ways to prevent bed bugs from entering include: • Do not bring infested items into your home.

Open late

for all your

Closely check or inspect your luggage and clothing, especially after travel to other countries. Infestations can often be traced to international travel in Asia, South/Central America, Africa and Europe. • Even the cleanest homes and hotels can have bed bugs. However, regular housecleaning, including vacuuming your mattress, can help to prevent bed bugs. Clean up clutter to reduce the number of places bed bugs can hide. • Check second-hand furniture and bedding before you bring them into your home. • Ensure cracks and crevices in the exterior of your home are repaired.

Attack plan: There are non-chemical and chemical options for treating bed bug infestations. Non-chemical ways to treat bed bugs include:

• Wash bedding and clothing in hot water and laundry detergent. Delicate clothing can be put in a bag and placed in the freezer for several days. • Vacuum often with strong suction all possible places with bed bugs including the mattress, box spring, and bed. • Use a scrub brush to remove bed bugs and eggs from the seams of mattresses. • Stuffed toys can be put in the clothes dryer for 30 to 45 minutes. Chemical ways to treat bed bugs include: • Spray, liquid, and dust products are available at retail stores. It is very important to ensure the products are specifically registered for bed bugs. Directions for use of chemical products should be followed carefully. • Call a pest control company Source: HealthLink BC

Sister city the theme BY

NEIL CORBETT

Mission Record

Mission will have a little piece of her Japanese sister city Oyama within a subdivision of prestige properties under development. On Monday night developer Daren Alary showed council the final details of Oyama Estates, a longtime family project which is nearing completion. The unique development will feature 22 lots, with a minimum of 0.88 acre lot sizes. They border on a forested ravine and creek, which will be donated to the district for their Silverdale Creek Parkway Corridor plan. Of the 69 acres, 52 will be donated. Alary said the area is being preserved in as natural a state as possible. Features will include a flowering treeline, a landscaped entryway with the Japanese Kanji character for friendship, lot markers of stone with Kanji characters, and a Japanese garden on each lot, 200 square feet in

size, with bamboo benches and bird feeders. Alary explained that his family became developers because his father wanted out of the turkey business, and in selling the poultry farm he took a 69-acre piece of wooded property just south of the Mission Sports Park in trade. That was 1974, and five years ago the

family embarked on developing the lot that had been in the family for some 30 years. He welcomed council to an opening event on Sept. 25 to celebrate the completion, from 3-6 p.m. (see advertisement page 11). Mayor James Atebe said the project is a good example of how

the district co-operates with developers, and is a business-friendly community. He also thanked Alary for the donation of 52 acres. Coun. Heather Stewart said the next time visitors from Mission’s sister city are in the district, they should be toured through their namesake subdivision.

Community does its part for cancer research Inspiring stories motivate cancer society volunteers BY

Biking to beat kid’s cancer BY

LORENE KEITCH

Mission Record

Mission RCMP Cst. Carl Wellwood is trading one uniform for another to help a good cause. He will be donning spandex shorts and a bike helmet for nine days as he bikes more than 750 km in the upcoming Tour de Valley. This annual fundraiser sees emergency services personnel from across the Fraser Valley bike from Tsawwassen to Boston Bar and back to raise money for Cops for Cancer, which funds pediatric cancer research and services for kids with cancer. The money also goes to programs such as Camp Goodtimes, a summer camp for kids with cancer. This will be Wellwood’s second year on the team and he is looking forward to another tour. He signed up last year because he was working with youth and was an avid cyclist, so it seemed like a good fit. But after the first tour, Wellwood’s reasons for signing up have changed. After meeting all the kids along the tour who have gone through or are going through cancer, Wellwood is now inspired by them to fundraise, to train hard and to bike such a long distance. “Once you get to meet them and hear their stories it’s just incredible what they go through.” And he says on the bike ride itself, what those kids have gone through keeps the team riding hard. “When it’s been pouring rain, or the hill just never ends, we always say to each other ‘it beats chemo’. Whatever we’re going through, it’s nothing like what these kids have gone through.”

During the tour, which runs Sept. 23 to Oct. 1, riders stop in at schools to spread the message of cancer safety such as not smoking. They also make appearances at local businesses, including a scheduled stop at the Junction Mall Sept. 27 at 3:45 p.m. for anyone who would like to come out and cheer on the team. On this year’s Tour de Valley 21-member team, there are representatives from RCMP in the Fraser Valley detachments, police, sheriff’s services, Corrections and even paramedics. Each team member is required to train enough to be prepared for the 750 km bike ride, and they have a minimum of one team ride a month to practice riding in a group. Wellwood began training in earnest six months ago and has been ramping up his distance the closer he gets to the event. Wellwood’s fundraising goal for this year’s Tour de – Cst. Carl Wellwood Valley was $5,000, which he has already met and exceeded thanks to the generosity of Mission residents. After camping out on a scissor lift high above Junction Mall for 48 hours recently, he had $6,000 raised. Donations are still being accepted, and can be made online at www.kintera.org/faf/home. You can donate to Wellwood’s account by clicking on his name under the ‘Tour de Valley’ team button. Other ways to help Cops for Cancer is to stop by the RCMP office downtown or the Canadian Cancer society Mission office to buy a t-shirt or Buddy Bear for $15. Since the Tour de Valley started 13 years ago, approximately $2.1 million has been raised, according to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Whatever we’re going through, it’s nothing like what these kids have gone through.

Cancer is never far from Jimmy Logan’s mind. As the president of the Canadian Cancer Society community office in Mission, Logan hears countless stories of how this disease has affected people’s lives. He sees cancer every day when he looks at the faces of people who come into the office for support groups, he hears stories from the volunteer drivers who take people to and from countless chemotherapy appointments, and he sees it every time he looks in the mirror. Logan’s own family was rocked by the devastating disease, which took his son from him in September, 2007 and which attacked his own body about seven years ago in the form of prostate cancer. But Logan also sees hope. As a volunteer, Logan meets people who have fought the disease and won, he encounters other volunteers who give of their time and energy to raise funds for research and programs for cancer victims and he meets people who write cheques on behalf of loved ones who have passed away or in honour of someone they know struggling with the disease. So for Logan, the job is one of hope, not of despair. And that is why he says events like the upcoming Tour de Valley and Terry Fox Run are so important. At these types of events, Logan often hears stories of how people have been affected by cancer. “It’s very encouraging for us volunteers to realize how lucky we are to keep going,” he said. “You wake up each day and think ‘I’m damn lucky to be alive’.” He is encouraged when he meets people like a woman who asked for donations to the Cancer Society instead of presents for her birthday. Or the couple who recently got married and, as wedding favours, bought Cancer Society daffodil pins. Or the community that rallied around a family and raised $10,000 to help cover the high costs of cancer. And he is encouraged when he meets guys like Rob Hess, a Mission resident who has donated his time and talent to help out at fundraising events by singing free of charge. Logan has story after story of people like this.

JIMMY LOGAN

“We’ve got great people in this town - it really is amazing,” Logan stated. And he invites the community as a whole to share in that story of helping. All it takes is a pair of laced up shoes and a willingness to walk five kilometres and you can be a part of the solution by coming to the Terry Fox Run this Sunday, Logan invites. If the Terry Fox run is not your thing, the society has many other fundraisers throughout the year including daffodil days, a door to door campaign, a Robbie Burns supper, the Relay for Life and more. If you want to donate your time, the society is always in need of more volunteers, especially drivers to take patients to and from appointments. Nancy McNicol volunteers alongside Logan at the Mission office. She loves volunteering here because it is a good cause and she gets to meet great people. “Cancer affects so many people family, friends - and it’s nice to help others,” she explained of her decision to volunteer. She has found Mission to be an “amazingly generous” community when it comes to raising funds and loves to see the support Missionites give to such an important cause. To learn more about this busy little office, drop by their location at 33079B First Ave. in Mission, or call 604-8203166. They will also have a booth set up at this Saturday’s Celebration of Community at the Fraser River Heritage Park. McNicol invites people to stop by and meet some of the volunteers who keep up the tireless work of raising funds for the Canadian Cancer Society.

Terry Fox Run a fun family time for a good cause BY

LORENE KEITCH

Mission Record

Lace up your runners and pack up the kids: the Terry Fox Run happens this Sunday, Sept. 19. This annual event happens in communities across Canada with the shared goal of raising money for cancer research. Do not let the word ‘run’ scare you off; this event is for everyone, said organizer Craig Grant. “Some people even come out just to walk part of it,” said Grant. “It’s not a race.” He invites the community to run, jog, walk, bike or rollerblade the route. The course takes participants from the Mission Leisure Centre, along Seventh Avenue, into Heritage park and

back – a 5 km round trip. You can sign up for the 5 km route or loop it twice for a 10 km finish. Mission’s run tends to see a turnout of around 100 people, but Grant said they would always love to see more. Last year there were about 125 people who signed up, though the actual number would be much higher if they counted all the school children who take part in a Terry Fox run at their schools. To commemorate the reason for the run, there will be a board where people can write their own experiences with cancer – whether that be memories of loved ones lost, who they are running for, or their own history with the dreaded disease.

Grant is a member of the Mission Rotary club, the organizing body for the annual Terry Fox Run. When asked why he now organizes the event, Grant jokes, “I was coerced into doing it by (Rotary member) Pam Alexis.” But on a more serious note, Grant knows that raising money for cancer research is a good cause. After all, he lost both of his parents to the disease. Terry Fox began his epic journey in 1980, setting out to raise awareness of cancer and raise funds to fight against the disease that was attacking his own body. While he never finished his mission, millions across Canada have picked up the torch and carried on raising money for cancer in

Terry Fox’s name. The Terry Fox run marks its 30th anniversary this year, with the same goals as Fox had when he set out to run from one end of Canada to the other. To date, more than $500 million has been raised for the Terry Fox Foundation. So, how will Grant know this year’s Mission event has been a success? “It’s always a success if people donate,” Grant said. “It’s a success when we’re able to have people live longer or be able to deal with it (cancer) better.” Registration begins at 8 a.m., with the run kicking off at 9 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 19 at the Mission Leisure Centre at 7650 Grand St.

THE MISSION RECORD – THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2010

OPINION

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

Can voters trust the premier’s word?

H

ow does the average voter place trust in the words that leave the mouth of Premier Gordon Campbell? As the HST controversy continues its bizarre trail to a non-binding referendum a year from this month, Campbell’s latest comments leave doubt as to what will happen if voters reject the tax in the $30-million-plus vote. On Monday, Sept. 13, Campbell said the HST will be killed if a simple majority of voters who cast ballots are opposed to the HST – despite the fact the legislation calls for a majority of all registered voters across B.C. and in two-thirds of the province’s 89 ridings. When asked if his government will put in writing that simple-majority promise, Campbell said it would not. Huh? Yesterday on Radio NL’s Jim Harrison Show in Kamloops, Campbell said of the NDP-created Recall and Initiative Act: “It was a good piece of legislation and we are following the process.” This is the same Campbell who railed against this “good piece of legislation” when it was introduced in 1994. Here’s what he said as he tried in vain to convince the NDP to make the law less onerous on voters: “An absolute sham. This is a bill that pretends to open the door to accountability and accessibility, but if a citizen wants to try to take advantage of that invitation, they’ll find that the door will be slammed in their face.” The all-party legislative committee did its job on Monday, Sept. 13, when it decided to send the matter to a provincewide vote next year. It had two options and chose the referendum. But the caveat added by Campbell, who then refused to place his promise in writing, and his stunning aboutface regarding his view of the Recall and Initiative Act, have only added to widespread public perception that the premier just might have trust issues with voters. – Kamloops This Week

The media will continue to shine a light on the issue, and the public will continue to ask Horn, Mayor Atebe, and Couns Mike Scudder and Terry Gidda the reason for their opposition. They should have better answers than continuing to criticize the developer’s approach or media coverage. Their focus should be on the merit of Sturgeons on the Fraser. Some naysayers forecast Meakin only wants a place to park the slowly decaying carcass of the so-called McBarge, the Friendship 500 barge that housed a floating McDonald’s restaurant during Expo 86. They foresee an eyesore on the waterfront that will never be developed. With a derelict ferry already blocking part of Mission’s shoreline, this idea gets traction with some people. It doesn’t ring true for me. Abbotsford-Mission MLA Randy Hawes will tell you that the developer has done a lot of work with the province to secure a water lot lease on the Fraser. Meakin needed approvals from 16 different government agencies. He has dealt with enough red tape to lynch a bureaucrat. Then, when he was in the process of buying the lot he needed, he found out the District of Mission was also trying to purchase it. To all appearances, he was going about his business, and was ambushed by circumstances. SEE CORBETT PAGE 9

THE MISSION RECORD – THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2010 THE MISSION RECORD – THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2010

Public safety inspections an abuse of power Editor, The Record; I recently read in The Record how members of the public challenged the district’s $5,000 public safety inspection fees. I am writing this message to warn the public of the investigative searches that are being conducted on private property in the name of public safety,

and the deceptive claims that are being used to do so. I was foolish enough to allow a bylaw officer who assured me that at no cost to me he would do an inspection of my electrical box to ensure that it was up to code. After he and an electrician examined the panel to find little or nothing

wrong with it, they proceeded to search my home for a gas furnace, when I had already explained that the home had electric heating. They disregarded me again, explaining there was no furnace and searched outbuildings and even tore holes in the bottom of tied household garbage bags.

Insinuating comments were made about tomatoes growing outside my front door in pots, and about which buildings had power to them. A room previously used as an industrial sewing room was claimed to have been a grow-op room because of foil on a vent that was used to remove glue and paint fumes, and

a supposed marijuana leaf found on the floor. These inspections have become out of hand and I personally see them as nothing more than an abuse of power and a money grab by the municipality, and warn people to not let these inspections occur with a warrant. Pamela Lang, Mission

Drugs Casting light on energy shortfall sold near school Editor, The Record; There is a new drug superhighway in Mission and it is the walkway that connects Hurd Street to West Heights Elementary School. Even as children head to and from school this is the place of choice to smoke and deal drugs. Just yesterday, in broad daylight, I saw two drug deals, one on a bike and one on foot, as I walked to and fro past this spot. It makes me wonder how much happens under the cover of darkness. Speaking to a person who lives within spitting distance of the area, I learned that cars often zip in and out of this walkway to meet people at the school to perform on-the-run deals, all while school children pass by. Residents, please be vigilant and do your part by reporting any such occurrences to your local police whilst staying out of harms way. If your child attends West Heights, please speak to the police as well as your school, and let them know this is not acceptable. Let’s work together to keep our kids and neighbourhoods safe. Anonymous

Editor, The Record; Contrary to what letter writer Lila Rauh’s (Clean power must hit market, Sept. 9) young college friend tells her, B.C. has been a net importer of electricity in four of the past six years. According to a July 29 media release from B.C. Citizens for Green Energy, a recent study from UBC states that “B.C. can only be seen as a net exporter of electricity if B.C.’s entitlement to electricity generated in the United States under the Columbia River Treaty is added to the export total. We can’t conveniently bring that treaty power into B.C. for our own use, because there is no direct transmission line from the Columbia River generating facilities. That’s why Powerex has always sold it directly to the American market and generated considerable revenue for the people of B.C.” If you take the Columbia River power out of the equation, since we are unable to access it, then in 2009 B.C. had to import 1,430 gigawatt-hours of electricity, or a two per cent net import figure. So, we are already short of electricity and future

population increases are only going to make matters worse. Lila goes on to say that there is a study and calculation in existence that states “the entire planet’s energy consumption could easily be had from solar power without too much fuss.” On the contrary, I believe it would be an enormous “fuss.” It is true that there is a lot of energy in sunlight. In fact, there is a gigawatt of power in one square kilometer of bright sunlight. That is as much energy as a typical coal or gas fired power plant produces. The problem is accessing it. Present solar cells are only about 15 per cent efficient. Therefore, to create one gigawatt of electricity at high noon, in an area with totally clear skies, would take 6.7 square kilometers of solar panels at present efficiencies. An area like the West Coast is overcast or raining a good portion of the year which greatly reduces the amount of accessible sunlight, and let’s not forget that there is no sunlight at all for 12 hours out of every day. Most people will be charging their electric ve-

hicles at night while they are sleeping. The problem is the sun is not shining at night. So where is this energy going to come from? If we end up importing our energy from coal burning plants in Alberta, we have simply taken a step backwards. I look forward to reading Lila’s frequent letters to the paper, but let’s not confuse opinion for facts. A lot of people are of the opinion that there is some sort of conspiracy preventing us from having green energy. I don’t support this conspiracy theory. The fact is that many technological improvements will need to occur before we can rely solely on wind and solar power for all of our energy needs. We continue to move in a greener direction, but as I have pointed out, it is not going to be easy. If it is as easy as Lila’s letter implies, then I will expect to see her drive up to the next council meeting in her new solar powered electric car, and I don’t think that is going to happen. But that is just my opinion. Mark Sippola, Mission

Not just blowing smoke about clean air Editor, The Record; I have a visceral prejudice against anyone who thinks they can use my lungs as a dumping ground for the pollution they cause out of ignorance or profit. Last week I went on a rant to officialdom over two of my favourite targets: smokers in public and diesel fumes. Yes, I am guilty of discrimination and darn proud of it too. But then I have all the science and facts to back me up. It doesn’t take much to set me off when it comes to smokers, as even the nicest person in the world will turn into a selfish idiot when they light up their cancer sticks in public spaces. The law about not smoking within three meters of a doorway isn’t good enough. We need to put a stop to other people using any public spaces in which to inflict their filthy habit on others, who can’t see any logical reason why their lungs should be a victim to secondhand smoke. The other day I was fed up with walking through smoke into my wife’s office, because the neighbourFuture Shop – Correction Notice Macbook Pro (MC374C/A, M375C/A, MC375LL/A, MC3754LL/A) 10144465/6/3/4.

ing coffee shop had yet again allowed smokers to virtually sit on top of the doorway. I picked up the offending ashtray and tossed it into the garbage can supplied by the mall. Then, after a lot of telephone answering machine tag, I vented to the smoking by-law officer who did come over from Abbotsford and reinforced the message behind my dumping the ashtray. But my real point here is that no one should have to walk in any public area and have to breath in the known cancer risks from secondhand smoke. Not even the dog that goes to coffee with its owner – that I bought dust masks for as my way of pointing out that even animals can die from secondhand smoke. As for diesel fumes, I’m not holding out much hope but if you don’t use the channels that are there to make your thoughts known to officialdom then you’d be suffering in silence. And suffering in silence has never seemed to be my favourite thing to do. This time it was a neighbour’s kid whose diesel

truck just reeked driving past my house while I was working in the yard. Like with cigarette smoke, what gives someone else the right to think that my lungs should subsidize their thoughtlessness. And, like with secondhand smoke, the science is in, and diesel fumes have been named as one of the top five new cancer causing agents in our environment by the American Cancer Society. Pot heads take note, the active ingredient in dope was there too. So, to make a long story short, I put in a formal complaint to Health Canada and said that diesel truck ads on TV or any other media should come with warning labels just like cigarette packages. I also contacted the CRTC who said that they will act on those TV ads for diesels if I was able to get Health Canada to get involved. Why did I do all this? Well, if I just complain and don’t try to do something, then it would be just me blowing smoke, and that wouldn’t be environmentally the right thing to do, would it? Robert T. Rock, Mission

THE MISSION RECORD – THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2010

A community celebration Saturday brings annual festival BY

LORENE KEITCH

Mission Record

It is a celebration like no other, honouring Mission’s community spirit and its friendly, family atmosphere. The Celebration of Community happens this Saturday, Sept. 18 and organizers are excited to once again put on this free event for Missionites. The event started 10 years ago as a gathering of families, celebrating community together. It has grown into a special local gala featuring that same family feel but with tons of added attractions, explained John Taves, site and program co-ordinator for the Celebration of Community. Yet as the one-day festival grows, it continues to stay close to its roots. “This really is about community,” Taves said. “Mission makes Mission happen.” The day kicks off at 9 a.m. with a pancake breakfast by donation, sponsored by the Fraser Valley United Way. Don’t miss the Matsqui Fly Dogs - a group of superdogs that perform throughout the day - or the celebrity cooking stage where local celebrity chefs will be cooking up concoctions for your sampling delight. The District of Mission’s forestry department will plant the four millionth tree on Saturday as well at the park. The tree planting ceremony happens at 11 a.m. with local officials on hand to mark the occasion. The Celebration of Community has a strong focus on nonprofit organizations, and all manner of service clubs set up a booth so locals can see and experience what Mission has to offer. Attendees might be surprised at the number

of service clubs in Mission, and at the variety, such as “the crazy knitting club,” Taves said with a chuckle. With this year’s theme of Harvest Fest, organizers have gathered exhibitors such as a bee hive display, an agricultural show and an interactive presentation put on by the BC Dairy Foundation. Taves says the dairy display should be of particular interest

to kids. There will be a life-sized fibreglass cow that you can try your hand at milking. There will also be a live calf, cow and milking machine, all with the goal of teaching kids about the journey milk makes from cow to cup. There will be a petting zoo, hot air balloon rides, roaming magicians and even a giant inflatable waterslide. There is plenty of entertainment planned throughout

the day including demonstrations from Sun Hang Do Marshal Arts and Mission Isshin Ryu Karate, performances from the Fraser Valley Academy of Dance and the Stave Falls Dancers, among others. “People should come if they want to realize how lucky they are to live here,” Taves summed up. Attendees will also have the opportunity to create a lantern in preparation for the evening festivities. Following the Celebration of Community is the evening Illuminaria Lantern Festival. The created lanterns will be lit, symbolizing the spirit of community living. At the festival there will be fire dancers, a fire labyrinth to walk through, live music and a fireworks showcase. The evening entertainment will be by Top City, a Vancouver R&B, soul and dance band featuring a fourpiece horn section. This is the 11th annual Illuminaria Lantern Festival, which begins at dusk. The Mission Association for Community Living (MACL) began hosting the celebration of light in 1998, following the last person who left B.C.’s last institution for people with developmental disabilities. The Illuminaria Lantern Festival is intended to celebrate the spirit of community living and the message that everyone belongs. “As the days grow shorter and the nights longer, we use the language of light to beckon all in a spirit of togetherness and inclusion” explained executive director Robert Keys. in a press release. “We actually create something new, a whole that is greater than the sum of its individual parts.” Both the Celebration of Community and Illuminaria Lantern Festival are free and geared towards the whole family. Parking is by donation, brought to you by Mission Special Olympics.

Property purchase risky for developer From CORBETT Page 6

If Meakin is pulling a fast one, it’s a convoluted plot indeed. If all he needed was a place for McBarge to die, why not scuttle it, or just scrap it?

Now he is worried that purchasing the lot could tie up over a million of his dollars in a useless exercise, if he can’t get his plan through city hall. Council should rescind the motion they passed last Tuesday, which all but kills the waterfront project, and proceed down a path that leads to public hearings.

Captain Black's

Councillors made several comments at last Tuesday’s controversial meeting that they would not make their decision based on getting cheers from the gallery; and they wouldn’t be bullied. They should take their impressive resolve to public hearings, and let’s hear what Missionites have to say about Sturgeons on the Fraser.

HST going to fall referendum BY

TOM FLETCHER

Black Press

The petition to scrap the harmonized sales tax will be put to a non-binding referendum on Sept. 24, 2011, after voters have paid the new tax for 15 months. The legislative committee voted unanimously for the referendum option Monday afternoon. It was the only choice left to them after the B.C. Liberal majority voted down an NDP motion to take the issue back to the legislature this fall. Fight HST petition organizers Bill Vander Zalm and Chris Delaney abruptly left the public gallery before the voting. Delaney said outside the legislature committee room that once Boundary-Similkameen MLA John Slater confirmed that he would continue to support the government, the outcome was obvious. HST opponents have identified Slater, Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett and other Interior MLAs as prime targets for a recall campaign because of the number of signatures gathered protesting the tax. “We’re going to go to recalls as soon as we possibly can and we’re going to stop this charade from carrying on,� Dela-

ney said. “They’re not going to get to a referendum.� Fight HST organizers have previously indicated that they would start recall efforts against B.C. Liberal MLAs on Nov. 15. Delaney said details will be announced next week. NDP members of the committee called for the legislature to be activated this fall and

a free vote to be held. B.C. Liberal members countered that the legislature has already had a long debate and vote this spring to repeal the former provincial sales tax effective July 1. B.C.’s never-used initiative law specifies when the referendum must be held, and that even if it reaches the required

50 per cent of all registered voters, it is not binding on the government. The law does not describe whether the referendum should be a mail-in ballot that would cost an estimated $12 million, or an election-style personal ballot that would cost $30 million to organize. Before the crucial vote, MLAs on the committee questioned officials from Elections BC on the structure of the referendum under the untested legislation. The officials said their view is that Elections BC should determine the wording of the referendum question, but they acknowledged that the law says the provincial cabinet will have a say on the wording and when the question is released to the public. Vander Zalm denounced the referendum plan as “the mother of all manipulations� by the premier’s office. He vowed to “work my butt off� to recall enough MLAs to force them to scrap the tax, or lose their seven-seat hold on the government. The HST took effect July 1 in Ontario and B.C., extending provincial sales taxes to a range of new services such as restaurant meals, phone and cable TV.

Majority vote enough to repeal BY TOM FLETCHER Black Press

The petition to scrap the harmonized sales tax will be put to a referendum on Sept. 24, 2011, with a simple majority of votes to decide its fate. The legislative committee voted unanimously for the referendum option Monday afternoon. It was the only choice left to them after the B.C. Liberal majority voted down an NDP motion to take the issue back to the legislature this fall. After the committee decision, Premier Gordon Campbell announced in Vancouver that if more than 50 per cent of those who vote in the referendum want the tax repealed, the government would voluntarily abide by their wishes. That’s a lower threshold than the initiative law, which requires approval by 50 per cent of all voters on the 2009 list and also a majority in 60 per cent of constituencies.

NDP members of the committee called for the legislature to be activated this fall and a free vote of MLAs to be held.

The Alary family looks forward to meeting you.

This isn’t a c cookie cutter subdivision. Each lot is unique be ecause of the natural slopes, but the Japanese theme will remain throughout. “Most back onto greenspace and ravines that form part of the parkland that was donated,” said Daren. “I envision m many people building homes with big decks ovverlooking the creek, sipping their coffee and listening to the babbling creek and the bird ds. With the parkland donation, nobody will ever build behind these homes. This will become a protected area.” The properrty has been in the Alary family since the 19 970s. Daren’s father purchased it after falling in love with the creek and ravine that runs thro ough it. “My father thought the property’s location was good an nd the overall feel was extremely unique. He fe elt it was like a forest in the middle of town, yet sso close to all the amenities.” The Alary family hopes you feel the same. They believe those purchasing these lots to build their dream home deserve a dream location too.

47 acres will be donated to the District as parkland.

electricity theft at the location. RCMP found the grow-op in the basement, with 1,575 mature marijuana plants and a hydro bypass at the hydro meter base. According to an RCMP press release, one man

was caught fleeing the residence in his underwear. He was arrested and charged with production of a controlled substance, possession for the purpose of trafficking, and theft of telecommunication.

said VanSchaik initially provided a different name, and was believed to be from the Interior. He has an extensive criminal record – mainly in Abbotsford, Chilliwack and Mission – that includes previous convictions for dangerous driving, impaired driving and fleeing from police. He has also been convicted of break-and-enter, mischief, theft, uttering threats, and carrying a weapon. VanSchaik was arrested Thursday after the Air 1 police helicopter tracked a motorcyclist heading along Highway 11 from Mission to Abbotsford, hitting excessive speeds, running red lights and stop signs, and passing drivers on the shoulder. The rider then slowed down and intentionally dropped his Suzuki sports bike in the area of South Fraser Way and Bourquin Crescent, where he was arrested.

THE MISSION RECORD – THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2010

Little traffic disruption BY

NEIL CORBETT

Mission Record

The retrofit of the Mission Bridge is nearing completion, as new, higher rails have been installed on the west side of the bridge, and work will now commence on the east side. Owen Langton, spokesman for Langley-based Seismic 2000 which is doing the $650,000 bridge maintenance job, said there has been minimal disruption to traffic. The company has used innovative carriages on the pedestrian deck, meaning there is no need to close a bridge lane for workers. He said in total the bridgework will cause about three hours of traffic interruption. The company is installing a railing that is half a metre higher than the old one, at a height of 1.3 meters, and 1.1 km long (on each side). He said with the former low rail, and the movement of the bridge when heavy vehicles drive by, made it a scary proposition to ride a bike over the Fraser. “You’ve got to have strong nerves as a cyclist,” he said. The work on the bridge began in 2009 with a $1.3 million retrofit that saw strengthened of the joints between the bridge girders, and replacing of the deck joints – the joints between the spans – which allows the structure to move. The bridge was built between 1969 and 1973, and is expected to have a 75-year lifespan.

Adopt-A-Block adds stream cleanup duties Litter is unpleasant to find and has negative consequences for animals and aquatic life. Most litter is carried off by wind or rain into nearby waterways, degrading sensitive aquatic habitats by obstructing waterways, adding bacteria and other toxins into the water and by contributing to the depletion of oxygen aquatic life depend on. To address this environmental concern, Mission Adopt-A-Block has expanded its program to include two stream cleanups this fall, as a part of the society’s Annual Fall Litter Clean-up Fundraiser for non-profits. The two winning groups selected to participate are SAINTS and Rotary. Both groups will be conducting a clean-up of D’Hereomez stream in Heritage Park.

Stream Clean-Up Meet & Greet Mission Adopt-A-Block invites all volunteers, friends and supporters to join the society in Heritage Park (at the picnic shelter) Sept. 25, 8:30-9:30 a.m. Adopt-A-Block will be speaking on stream clean-ups procedures and the new developments taking place along D’Hereomez stream in Heritage Park. Following will be a litter clean-up of the park area at 9:30 a.m. For more information and to RSVP for the event please contact the Adopt-A-Block coordinator at (604) 826-9423.

THE MISSION RECORD – THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2010

Couple bear sprayed, threatened with knife BY

LORENE KEITCH

Mission Record

A man and woman were bear sprayed and threatened with a knife in a case of mistaken identity in Mission. It was late afternoon Monday, Sept. 6 when a man pulled into a driveway on Harris Street. He

claimed to be looking for someone who he falsely believed lived in that home. The woman who was assaulted told The Record in a phone interview that at first she did not realize what kind of danger they were in. She explained to the man the person he was looking for did

not live there and even offered to let him come inside to have a look. She said the driver did not appear to believe them and kept yelling about bringing the person out. Then he pulled out a can of bear spray and sprayed directly into the woman’s face. He also threatened them with a knife.

The 60-year old Mission resident fled the scene, but not before a witness in another vehicle got his licence plate number. Mission RCMP found the man at the Mission Superstore shortly afterwards, where he was arrested for assault with a weapon. Meanwhile, the woman

was terrified as the bear spray had temporarily blinded her. She was quickly on the phone with paramedics and flushed her face with water for about half an hour. “My partner got a little on his nose, but he got me directly in the eyes and face – he got me really good,” she said. “I

was thinking I was going blind, I was really, really scared.” The woman, whose name is being withheld for safety concerns, would like to let Mission residents know that this man may appear harmless but was in fact dangerous. “I made the mistake of going to the car window,” she said. “You cannot reason with him, he has an idea in his mind and he’s going to stick to it.” She says people need to be aware of strange vehicles or occurrences

in their neighbourhoods and to be wary of what could appear to be a harmless situation. Mission RCMP Sgt. Miriam Dickson said the man has been charged with assault with a weapon. She credits the witness with helping RCMP to locate the man. “Mission RCMP would like to remind the public the value of obtaining descriptive information such as licence plate number when witnessing criminal activities,” she said in a press release.

Katie Ellan is not going to let the wool get pulled over her eyes. This Mission resident wants to warn of a telemarketing scam that she was not fooled by, but fears some gullible residents may take in others. A man told her he was phoning from Canadian Tire and said, she had won a trip. When he told her to redeem her prize by calling a 1-900 number, she hung up. “It made me suspicious because you don’t get anything for nothing,” she told The Record. “If you haven’t worked for it, you don’t earn it.” She quickly phoned Canadian Tire to let them know, and was told they were aware of the scam and have had other calls like hers. Frank Ehrhardt is the manager of the Mission Canadian Tire. He explained that from time to time Canadian Tire will phone customers for surveys so there are some legitimate calls out there. But if someone starts asking for your personal information, do not give that out, because it means

the caller is not from Canadian Tire, Rollo said. He urges anyone who wonders whether a call is legitimate to simply phone the store to confirm, as Ellan did. She realized quickly the call was a scam, and now wants to make sure other locals are wary if they get a call that sounds too good to be true. “They’re not going to trick us Missionites,” she stated with a laugh. Cosco has also been a business name used in a recent phone scam that attempts to obtain credit card and other personal information by offering prizes, as reported in Black Press recently. Bev Beliveau, general manager of the Abbotsford outlet, said many customers are concerned the company’s membership list has been compromised. But she said that’s not the case because the list is not given out, and some of those reporting the scam are non-members. If you have concerns about any phone call, Canada has an anti-fraud call centre set up to handle reports and inquiries. Call PhoneBusters at 1-888-495-8501.

They are sold at heritage gift shops, including the local Museum, Stave Falls Power House and Kilby Museum. Margaret Peake of JMJ Photography Services demonstrated that, with a camera and just “a few blades of grass, and sticks,” a fascinating still life can emerge. Margaret has practiced her photographic art for 20 years – after studies at the New York Institute of Photography. Margaret regularly offers photos, cards and prints at our markets. Margaret Lissner’s “Sculptured Dreams” illustrated recycling in an artistic way. Margaret forms wire models, covers them with tinfoil, and finishes with scraps of old t-shirts. She completes her creations by painting them with a product imported from Holland. Margaret will join the other visual artists at the Art Council’s Christmas Craft Market on Nov. 13 and 14 at Heritage Park Secondary School. Culinary artist Cindy Grewell of “Chefs Secret Service” added even more flavour to the day with a tasty sampling of hors d’oeuvres that featured basil and pesto, with fresh and canned tomato salsa. Cindy will be at our Sept. 18 market and promises “… other fresh and ready items like corn and carrots and perhaps a butternut squash. We’ll also be offering local apple and blueberry pies.” We look forward to continuing an artistsmarket relationship during the coming year. The Mission market is a social and “fun place to be” as our slogan states, where there are now opportunities to absorb food for the body, mind and spirit. Artist Mark Rothko expressed my own admiration for these artists: “Art is an adventure into an unknown world, which can only be explored by those willing to take the risks.” Heather Stewart is a volunteer with the Mission City Farmers Market.

More red light cameras to patrol intersections Persistent violators can expect to get more tickets JEFF NAGEL Black Press

ICBC is installing 140 new traffic enforcement cameras at intersections across B.C. this fall to bust red-light runners. It’s a nearly five-fold increase from the 30 existing cameras that snap the licence plates of drivers who race through lights on red, earning them $167 tickets in the mail. The $20-million upgrade will eliminate the old film cameras, which rotated through 120 targeted intersections, in favour of new digital ones that automatically transmit images of offenders’ plates to the ticket processing centre. The new cameras will remain fixed in 140 locations that have now been determined. ICBC isn’t yet releasing the list of target intersections, saying that will come via a government announcement later this year when the new system is up and running. However it’s a fair bet that it will mean a significantly higher risk of getting caught for prolific red light scofflaws, particularly in cites where there are already plenty of intersections with camera mounts. Vancouver currently has 25 of the 92 Lower Mainland camera sites, while Surrey has 13, Burnaby and Delta have seven each and Richmond and Abbotsford have five each.

“We looked at over 1,400 signalized intersections throughout the province and gradually winnowed that down,� said Mark Milner, manager of ICBC road safety programs. He estimated there will be a six-per-cent reduction in serious injury and fatal crashes at intersections as a result of the cameras. The amounts paid out in claims for crashes should go down accordingly, he said, covering the cost of the new cameras. The ticket fine revenue will go to local municipalities, not to ICBC. The digital system means tickets could go out in days, rather than the current four to six weeks. Although the cameras could run all the time, Milner said each one will only be activated part of the time. The aim, he said, is to maximize safety, not fine revenue. ICBC will study which times of day and days of week it makes most sense to run the cameras. Milner didn’t rule out further expansion of the red light camera system. “It’s possible we may consider adding more further down the road,� he said. “Right now, we think we’ve got the optimal road

Parker won’t continue as chair of TransLink At 75, another three-year term ‘more than I should take on’ JEFF NAGEL Black Press

TransLink board chair Dale Parker will step down from the role at the end of this year. His three-year term is expiring and at age 75 says he’s decided to rein in his commitments and stop serving on the nine-member board. “To do another three-year term is more than I should take on at this stage,” Parker said. He was TransLink’s first board chair after the province shook up the regional transportation authority in 2007, replacing elected mayors and councillors with professional appointees who brought expertise in finance, planning and transportation. Critics predicted the new board would be mere pawns of the province, ramming through Victoria’s policies over local objections. Instead, Parker and the board forged a strong relationship with the Mayors Council on Regional Transportation. Together, they resisted provincial government pressure on how far to go in raising more money for rapid transit expansion, instead adopting a more modest package of tax and fare hikes last year to stabilize TransLink

funding. It set the stage for continued negotiations still underway with Victoria, which mayors hope will ultimately deliver a larger pot of money to ensure more than just the Evergreen Line gets built. “He came in at a very challenging time,” said mayors council chair and Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender. “He was very professional and helped to build a strong foundation given the governance structure we have.” Parker said the Evergreen Line was “something we all wanted to have happen, but you have to get your house in order first.” He said TransLink is now on solid financial footing, erasing a $150-million deficit by last year’s decision to raise an additional $130 million and internal cost cutting that has saved $30 million a year. Parker said the board is stable and has gained much knowledge and appreciation for the transit system and the needs throughout the region. He predicts one of the most important but less-understood decisions has been to proceed with a smart card payment system. Too much public attention has been on the turnstiles that would come to SkyTrain, he said, rather than the cards

themselves and the flow of data they will generate, providing much better information on how people use transit and how to better manage the system. Two other TransLink directors

have terms expiring this year – SFU economics professor Nancy Olewiler and corporate director and lawyer David Unruh – but both are seeking new three-year terms. Either one, if renewed, might be well-positioned to take over as chair, a position paid $100,000 a year.

A screening panel is vetting a large number of applicants and will put forward five names, which could include Unruh and Olewiler, from which the mayors council will choose three directors for new terms. The full board votes in a new chair at the end of the year.

ALR farmland protection lacking says audit Budget cuts leave commission poorly equipped JEFF NAGEL Black Press

Inaccurate paper maps, inadequate enforcement mechanisms and under-

funding are among the challenges hindering the Agricultural Land Commission (ALC) in its job of protecting farmland from relentless pressure

from developers. Those are some of the findings of B.C. Auditor-General John Doyle, whose office examined the work of the commis-

sion in regulating the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR). Doyle found the commission has too few staff and enforcement tools

than imposing orders or fines, because it can’t afford to defend tougher measures in court when challenged. The ALC’s $2.1-million budget has fallen almost 30 per cent since 2002, and is significantly below

what it calls a minimal level required to maintain its core services. “The fundamental importance of preserving agricultural land is particularly significant given the uncertain effects of climate change on our food imports and our agricultural systems,” Doyle said. His report found the ALC lacks necessary information to make good decisions. It recommends the ALC work more closely in long-term planning efforts with local cities to encourage farming and seek government support to embark on reforms. Doyle also calls for a beefed-up compliance and enforcement program, perhaps including the ability to ticket offenders who degrade ALR land. Another potential change could be to ban or restrict ALR exclusion applications for prime farmland, the report notes. But the provincial government would have to enact legislative changes to allow many reforms Doyle envisions and his report notes Victoria has not invited the ALC to propose any changes over the past eight years. The Lower Mainland has lost eight per cent of its ALR land since the reserve was created in 1973. There has been a net loss of ALR land in every region of B.C., except the north, where additions to the ALR are often not as productive. NDP agriculture critic Lana Popham blamed the provincial government for continued underfunding of the commission. “Less than five per cent of British Columbia’s land base is suitable for agriculture, which is why we must protect the farmland we have, especially in the face of an increasing population and a changing climate,” she said. The commission said it welcomed many of the findings and its new chair is conducting a full review of the organization. Agriculture and Lands Minister Steve Thomson said he will await the results of that review before deciding what if any legislative changes are needed. He said the ALC has done a very good job with declining resources. “All ministry and organizations have faced budget constraints as a result of the fiscal situation of the province – the land commission hasn’t been immune to that.”

Mission Record

Senior striker Josh Atebe isn’t shy about setting big goals for the UFV men’s soccer team, saying “We’ll be disappointed if we don’t make it to nationals.” JOHN VAN PUTTEN PHOTO

Atebe a ‘character’ player The Mission mayor’s son is a giant on the soccer pitch for UFV BY

DAN KINVIG

Black Press

Josh Atebe is a different dude, no doubt about it. He’s an intelligent dude, a well-spoken dude, a good-soccer-playing dude . . . but definitely a different dude. On Wednesday, for instance, Atebe showed up for his morning class at the University of the Fraser Valley wearing coveralls as pants, with the sleeves knotted at the waist. Alan Errington, UFV’s resident quipster/men’s soccer coach, wondered aloud if Atebe gets dressed in the dark. “They’re just comfortable,” Atebe said with a chuckle, explaining the thought process behind the coveralls. “There’s no real waistband, and they fit nicely.” Atebe is, in Errington’s words, “a character.” When the Cascades are on the road, he’s apt to wander off on his own to check out the sights, learn something about the city, or find an interesting place to eat. Then there’s his persona on the pitch. The fifth-year senior striker stands 6’6” – tall by any standard, particularly so for a soccer player. (Atebe is three inches taller than any of his Cascades teammates.) He looms even larger thanks to his hairdo, a Bob Marleyesque mane of eight- to 10-inch dreadlocks. Factor in Atebe’s ferocious work ethic, and it’s hard to imagine a more physically impos-

ing striker roaming the pitch in the Canada West conference this season. “I tell him that I’d take a picture of him home to frighten my grandkids,” Errington joked. Funny thing is, as intimidating as Atebe might seem on the field, he’s really a gentle giant – a “lovely lad,” in Errington’s parlance. “I can’t say enough good things about him, he’s a class act,” Errington said. “But on the field, he’s a handful. It’s Jekyll and Hyde. He steps over that white line, and he’s different.” That’s a good thing for the UFV soccer squad. Atebe is coming off a breakthrough 2009 campaign where he finished second on the team in goal-scoring, and he’s looking to build on that performance as the Cascades embark on the Canada West regular season this weekend. In many ways, Atebe’s growth as a player has mirrored the development of the UFV program. He was physically gifted but technically raw when he joined the Cascades in 2004, when the team was still a member of the B.C. Colleges Athletic Association (BCCAA). “When I started here, if you showed up and had a pair of boots, you played,” Errington recalled. “He (Atebe) had no first touch and he had no idea about the game, but he was a big physical presence and he was all we had at that time. But now, he’s quite smart and intelligent on the field.” Atebe hails from Mission, where his father James is the mayor. Being in the public eye is part of the bargain for the younger Atebe. “I have a bit of a tough time with it, in the sense that his reputation is my reputation, and my reputation is his reputation,” said Atebe,

who doesn’t think he’s cut out for politics like his father. “As much as I’m proud of my dad and think he’s doing a great job, I don’t like saying too much about it. Because then anything that I do in a negative fashion reflects poorly on him. “But at the same time, the good stuff I do also reflects on him. So it depends. It’s been interesting. I don’t like being in the public eye in that regard. I like a lack of notoriety, flying under the radar a little bit.” Atebe’s Cascades might fly under the radar this season, given that the program is still seeking its first playoff berth as it enters its fifth year of Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) competition. The UFV men finished 4-8-2 last season, sixth out of eight teams in Canada West. But a strong recruiting class and a perfect 4-0 preseason lend credence to the notion that the Cascades are on the upswing. Errington calls it “the best group we’ve ever had.” Atebe takes it one step further. “I think we’ll be disappointed if we don’t make it to nationals,” said Atebe, one of four fifth-year players on the UFV roster along with defenders Andrew McCullough, James Giebelhaus and Nick Turner. “With this group and the way the league is, that’s our focus at this point. While we may be skipping a step, I think we’ll work harder (aiming for nationals) instead of just focusing on one step at a time.” The first home game for UFV soccer is on Saturday, Sept. 18, when the women take on the Victoria Vikes at 12 p.m. at Bateman Park. The Cascades men host their first home games the weekend of Sept. 25-26, when the Saskatchewan Huskies and Alberta Golden Bears come to town.

In a disappointing start to their Junior B campaign the Mission Icebreakers blew a 2-0 lead in one loss, and got blown out 8-2 in the other. On Saturday in Port Moody the Icebreakers got goals in each of the first two periods to take a two-goal advantage into the third period. But then Mission gave up four power play goals, including three in the last five minutes, and lost their season opener 4-3. Mission goals were scored by Steven Klips, James McNaughton and Luke Venema. The Port Moody power play went four-for-10, while Mission was one-for-four. On Sunday in their home opener Mission was embarrassed 8-2 by the Ridge Meadows Flames, as the Flames burned them six times on the power play, going six-for-16. Mission had only three man advantages, and didn’t score. Matt Schmitt had a goal and an assist, and Matt Denton also scored New coach Craig Sherbaty said the penalties didn’t come from lazy play, but rather his guys are sometimes trying to do too much. “We’ve got a hard working hockey club,” he said. “We’ve got a really talented team. We’ve just got to practice and get back to the basics.” “We’ll be stressing disciplined play,” he added. This week the Icebreakers will get two chances to get their first win on home ice. The first is at 7:30 p.m. tonight (Thursday) when they host the Grandview Steelers (1-1), and their regular Sunday game will see them against the Squamish Wolf Pack (0-1) at 3:30 p.m.

Niners take on reigning champs The Mission Niners Midget team travelled to Nanaimo over the weekend to take on the reigning B.C. champions in community football, and lost a game that was closer than the 22-0 score would indicate. “It was muddy and rainy and wet and slippery,” said co-coach Nelson Taylor. “Our receivers dropped a lot of balls that they should have caught.” He knew it was slick when sure-handed Brenden Edmondson, who had three interceptions a week earlier in a 17-14 win over White Rock, had picks slipping through his fingers against the tough Island squad. Mission also had two touchdowns that they scored called back because of blocks in the back. “It was a closer game than the score says,” said Taylor. He was impressed with the work of Kyle Albertini, who was all over the field as a running back and safety, and Blake Shuffelburger was another standout, playing fullback and linebacker. Q The Mission Bantams blew out North Langley 46-0 to win their first game of the season, but on the weekend a single point would have given them a win, and they couldn’t manage it. The game against Meadow Ridge ended in a rare scoreless tie. Mission’s offence was hampered by the loss of running back Christian Rivas at half time. See NINERS Page 26

DISTRICT OF MISSION CLARIFIES DEVELOPMENT STATUS (Sturgeonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the Fraser) The District of Mission is releasing the following statement to clarify information regarding the application by Mr. Howard Meakin for a proposed ďŹ&#x201A;oating restaurant and marina at 33458 Harbour Avenue in Mission.

Touchdown run Mission Roadrunner Cam MacEwan fought through these tacklers to gain another five yards and get the ball across the goal line for his second touchdown of the game. However, the tackler behind him came down on his back, and he broke his upper arm on the play. He may be gone for the season. The varsity squad beat the Holy Cross Crusaders 39-26 in pre-season play. Their next game is Friday in Kamloops. NEIL CORBETT PHOTO

1.

As of April 25, 2010, Mission municipal council chose not to continue pursuing the purchase of the former Meeker property and has no intention to compete against any developer for the purchase of said property.

2.

Typically, prior to a development application going forward for councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consideration, permission must be obtained from a property owner when the development application includes that personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property in a proposal.

3.

There is no requirement for the developer to purchase land in order to have a complete application which can be considered by council. Instead, a signed owner authorization agreement with the current landowner is considered to complete the application.

4.

The developerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rezoning application was given 1st and 2nd readings on September 7, 2010. Granting 1st and 2nd readings is not a denial of the application. It is a preliminary approval from council, which indicates a desire to move forward when the application requirements have been met.

If an artist is inspired by a blank canvas, then Magna Goerke sees inspiration everywhere she goes. This Mission artist paints not on canvas sheets, but on faces and bodies. So each person is a possible work of art, and each painting an opportunity to create something new. “It’s original artwork on a living canvas,” she explained of her craft in a recent phone interview. “I like that there’s no boundaries – every canvas is different.” She loves that face and body painting is something people remember, whether it’s a simple design painted on a child’s face at the fair, or an intricate body painting seen on a model or actress. Goerke recently won third place at a national face and body painting competition – an impressive feat given that Goerke only began face painting a year ago. “My motivation was my children,” she explained. She wanted to find a way to combine her creative side with her life as a mother. She began testing out designs on her two daughters, aged five and eight, and found she could use her artistic talents to paint unique designs on kid’s faces. That has branched into a business for Goerke, who said while she often begins at parties painting the children’s faces, but by the end of the event adults are asking for a temporary fantasy face too. “They think face painting is just for kids. When people see what I can actually do, adults want it too.” And she finds inspiration everywhere. Just recently, she formed a lot of ideas centered around dragons due to the popular kid’s movie ‘How to train a Dragon’. And when she saw Avatar, she figured out a way to paint that design onto a person. After a few months of painting faces, Goerke was ready to branch out even further. She started belly painting approximately six months ago. She always interviews the mother to find out what is significant to her or her personality type and paints accordingly. Goerke has painted watermelons and trees, peacocks and beach scenes – whatever the mom wants, Goerke tries to accommodate. Often, she explained, women get their belly painted for special family portraits. While belly painting covers a lot of skin, Goerke had never painted a full body before going to the Canadian Bodyssey 2010 Face and Body Painting Convention. Yet while she admits it was bold of her to have high expectations, she did plan to garner herself an award at this event, held at the end of August in Calgary, Ab. “I was pleased, but not shocked (with the award),” she said. “The whole experience was amazing.” For the competition, Goerke painted a model into ‘Thor’ the god of thunder and changed his face into a Viking ship masthead. She felt the pressure with only five hours to paint, but she still managed to walk away with a third place win. When she’s not doing face and body painting, Goerke is an instructor

at the University of the Fraser Valley in Abbotsford, teaching wedding planning essentials. As a professional event planner, Goerke is hoping to bring the Bodyssey event to Vancouver in 2010. Her other goal in this field is to work to raise practice standards for face painting. She said some of the paints used can be dangerous and many people are not aware of the potential risks. “If we can teach volunteers safety standards, we raise the bar for fundraising,” Goerke explained. “A lot of people would love to try face painting. If I can make it into a teaching opportunity, I’d love to do that.”

If you’re looking to expand your theatrical horizons and further develop your performance, directing or writing skills, then you will want to take part in Gallery 7 Theatre’s workshop series, brought back as part of the theatre’s 20th anniversary celebrations. “We’ve got a great line-up of workshops scheduled for both veteran and beginning performers, directors and writers,” explained the theatre’s artistic director, Ken Hildebrandt. “The workshops will be lead by theatre professionals who are passionate about sharing both their experience and passion with those who want to learn. This series represents a very rare opportunity for theatre practitioners to learn from the pros.” This year’s workshop series is as follows: Improvisation with Andrew Bright (pictured at right): Have a blast exploring the unique acting skill of thinking fast on your feet. Participants will learn effective improvisational techniques while developing a more confident stage presence and performance ability. This workshop is perfect for performers of all levels of experience and for the non-performer looking to develop greater confidence in public. Saturday, Sept. 25; 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Acting Intensive with Shannon Braithwaite: Explore both foundational and more advance acting techniques designed to help beginning and experienced actors develop stronger performance instincts. Skills such as blocking, voice, movement, character development and more will be examined in a hands-on course that will keep you hopping all day long. Saturday, Oct. 30; 10 a.m.

– 4 p.m. Playwriting with Vancouver Playwright, Lucia Frangione: Sharpen those pencils and get those thinking caps on! Here’s your chance to learn from a living, breathing (and produced!) playwright from Vancouver. Learn how to brainstorm, pre-write, develop characters, write dialogue, prepare a script for performance and more. This workshop is perfect for writers looking for input on an existing work, for writers who may be thinking about writing a play and for writers looking to expand their general skills. Saturday, Jan. 15, 2011; 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Directing: Explore both basic and advanced skills in directing in a course designed for both beginning and experienced directors working in church, school or community environments. Topics to be discussed include research, actor relations, scheduling, rehearsal techniques and transforming ideas in to reality. Saturday, March 12, 2011; 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. All workshops are perfect for the recreational theatre artist, aspiring writers, performers, church drama directors, and school drama instructors. “You can take one workshop, two workshops or the entire series,” concluded Hildebrandt. “We’ve prepared some great discounts depending on how many workshops you decide to take.” All workshops will be held at the MEI Secondary School, 4081 Clearbrook Road, Abbotsford and are recommended for teens and adults ages 14 and up.

A wise man once said that unusual travel suggestions are likened to dancing lessons from God. The point of this, I suppose, is that we might learn more about life by traveling to unusual places or by traveling in unusual ways. For instance, going to Australia instead of Disney World, or traveling by bus instead of by plane are more likely to be life-enhancing, consciousnessexpanding experiences; in short, a dance lesson with God. Another lesson to be taken from this is that moving through life should be more like dancing than simply taking a walk, which means we should try to move gracefully and beautifully as well as joyfully. How should we dance through life? The simplest and most beautiful way to do this is through love. By opening our heart to love, and loving those around us, the world is transformed from a dark, cold and dreary place to one of light, warmth and joy.

Falling leaves can cause flooding Each year at this time, Mission experiences a troublesome combination of falling leaves and heavy rains. Invariably, the falling leaves quickly plug the grates of catch basins, which in turn causes the runoff to enter peoples’ property. Serious flooding damage can result, along with a substantial repair bill which may not be covered by your insurance. The Public Works department ad-

vises that it is simply not possible for municipal staff to keep up with the 1,200 or so catch basins located throughout the municipality, during a heavy rainfall. You can help yourself, and prevent this kind of flooding, by ensuring that any leaves are cleared of catch basins near you property. To assist with this, you will need to locate the catch basins in advance, just so you know where they are.

Again thank you all, God bless you all, and Christopher would be toasting every one of you, Gone yet not forgotten; Although we are apart. Your spirit lives within us, Forever in our hearts You all made Christopher’s short journey here on earth the most amazing time. Thanks, Bradley, Sandy, Kristina Deekin, and Blake Ryan Laughlin.

THE MISSION RECORD – THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2010

2010 5TH ANNUAL

HISTORIC DOWNTOWN ABBOTSFORD

CAR SHOW Old fashioned values makes for memorable service Hub Motor Service has been a family-operated business for three generations. As the only full service gas station in Abbotsford, it's held onto its old-fashioned roots for more than 60 years. Currently owned and operated by Ross Siemens, the business is more than just gas pumps. They also offer full maintenance, including oil changes, transmission fluid service, and engine and brake replacement. When the service station first started, it was owned by Ross's grandparents. His grandpa learned to be a mechanic on a large farm in Russia, and after moving to Canada, migrated to Abbotsford in 1951 for a job at MSA Ford. They eventually bought the repair shop on the corner of Essendene and Gladys, renaming it Hub Motor Service. According to Ross, the name was chosen because Abbotsford was known as the hub of the Fraser Valley – something emulated by a number of local businesses. Ross's dad eventually took over the shop in 1964, followed by Ross and his wife in 1995. "All roads lead back to Abbotsford," says Ross, who had spent a couple of years travelling and teaching abroad. Since then, the station has seen some changes – they've had renovations, extended their service area, installed new storage tanks and made the switch to providing independent fuel. But they've also maintained many business

ideals. Their full service approach caters to much of the community, says Ross. Many of their customers have mobility issues, some are older, others are business people, and there are parents who don't want to leave their kids alone in the car. Many of their customers are thirdgeneration, having visited the station for more than 50 years, adds Ross. "It's part of who we are – a service provider to the community." Other constants in the business are the staff – their head mechanic started on the gas pumps at the same time Ross did 26 years ago, when they were both in school. Ross himself has been at the gas station for all his life. "I remember my mom would come down here and do the books, and I would play in the parts room. "We were open on the weekends until 10 p.m. – I think that was just a way to keep me out of trouble." Ross considers the shop to be one of the gateways in Abbotsford's downtown. "I've always had a heart for the revitalization of downtown. It's taken about 20 years, but now we're here," he says, adding that he has been heavily involved with the business association since its inception. By maintaining the store and keeping it customer-friendly, he hopes others are inspired to do the same.

This is how it all started in 1954 (below) when Peter (right) and his son, Jake (far right) established Hub Motors. Today, three generations later, it continues to thrive.
