Mission council officially sworn in BY ADRIAN MACNAIR Mission Record

Mission’s new mayor and councillors were sworn in Monday afternoon at the Best Western hotel before more than 200 spectators. Ted Adlem donned the mayor’s robe and chains of office, before new councillors Tony Luck, Larry Nundal, Nelson Tilbury, Jeff Jewell and Dave Hensman took their oaths. Four-time incumbent councillor Jenny Stevens was sworn in for her fifth consecutive term. “I’m new here,” Adlem laughed, as he began his inaugural address.

“Today is the beginning of a new chapter for Mission,” he said, promising to make good on his election promises of a core services review, attracting developers, and bringing a new seniors’ centre to Mission. “I believe that developers looking to invest, and businesses looking to relocate, will migrate to our community,” he said, driving home the same message that swept the Citizens for Responsible Municipal Government slate into office. Adlem also stressed development will come through tax base expansion. “Effective today, the District of

Mission is open for business.” He touched on other issues, such as promising to limit closed council meetings, and to ensure the Sturgeons on the Fraser project — also known as the “McBarge” from Expo 86 — will be brought forward to a public meeting. Assigning the portfolios, Luck will chair administration and finance; Hensman is chair of planning; Jewell is chair of engineering and public works; Stevens is chair of forestry; Tilbury is chair of parks, recreation and culture; and Nundal is chair of public safety and health. Also on hand for the inaugura-

tion was Abbotsford-Mission MLA Randy Hawes and Maple RidgeMission MLA Marc Dalton, incoming Abbotsford mayor Bruce Banman, and outgoing Mission mayor James Atebe. Atebe was given a community service pin by Adlem for his 12 years sitting on council, the past six as mayor. Adlem also thanked the previous council for their stewardship and service over the past three years. The event concluded with Jack Ethier singing a rousing birthday greeting for Stevens, celebrating her 75th birthday. Stevens was first elected to council in 1999.

DOWNTOWN PACKED FOR PARADE Around 11,000 people congregated along First Avenue Friday night for the 28th annual Candlelight Parade. See The Record’s special photo page, and read who won the float competition. PAGE 5

Wren project further delayed BY ADRIAN MACNAIR Mission Record

Mission’s new council expressed disappointment Tuesday evening about a letter sent from the federal minister of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) regarding a proposed $80-million commercial and residential development application that has been waiting over two years to get environmental approval. MP Keith Ashfield’s letter explains that the original proposal at Wren Street and Lougheed Highway included 12 acres of riparian

fish habitat, watercourses and wetlands, and impacted endangered species, such as the provincially red-listed Oregon Forestsnail (OFS), which is why it was initially rejected in 2009. Though DFO actually signed off on a mitigation plan for the fishery habitat this July, it is concerns from the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources (MFLNRO) and Environment Canada about the snail that has delayed final approval. The letter concludes without any indication of when, or how long, that will happen.

“I was particularly disappointed in this because the previous council specifically requested a timeline,” said Coun. Jenny Stevens. Former Coun. Paul Horn, speaking during question period, suggested DFO is playing “tug of war” and nobody wants to let go of the rope. “What is it they’re hoping the city will do?” Mayor Ted Adlem led a motion to invite DFO representatives to come to council and explain. But during question period former mayoral candidate Mike Gildersleeve accused the

new council of being biased. Adlem disagreed. “I’ve made up my mind that the [developer] deserves a public hearing,” said Adlem, adding it was question period and not “political speech period.” In a Dec. 2 letter obtained by The Record, MFLNRO regional executive director Heather MacKnight writes, “research has shown that evidence of OFS in Canada appears to be considerably higher” than previously believed and this new information will be considered by the province in making its decision.

Inmate found dead A sex offender found dead in his prison cell at Mission Institution on Friday is believed to be a homicide victim, according to RCMP. The man was found unresponsive around 10:45 p.m. and paramedics were unable to revive him, according to Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) spokeswoman Sgt. Jennifer Pound. Assistant warden Brandon Banks released a statement identifying the deceased as Troy Squires, 39, who had been in prison since Jan. 17, 2006 for sexual offences. Pound could not reveal the cause of death, but said an autopsy is expected to take place this week. IHIT investigators are working with Mission RCMP and Corrections Canada. Squires was serving time for forcible confinement, sexual assault, uttering threats to cause death/harm and assault with a weapon. Mission Institution is a medium-security facility three kilometres north of Mission and houses about 260 inmates.

Christmas sights, sounds fill First

Parade winners listed While around 11,000 spectators enjoyed Friday’s Candlelight Parade, the judges were busy critiquing each of the 75 floats that traversed First Avenue. The seven judges had a difficult time given the work that so many entries put into their floats and many scores were fractions apart. The winners of the 28th Candlelight Parade are: COMMERCIAL 1st: Fraserway RV 2nd: Fraser Valley Building Supplies 3rd: She’s my Florist NON-PROFIT 1st: Parkside Church 2nd: Abbotsford Recycling 3rd: Rotary Clubs of Mission SCHOOL 1st: WJ Mouat Drags 2nd: Valley Christian School 3rd: Deroche Elementary INDIVIDUALS 1st: Mike Hopkins 2nd: Clydesdale Horses 3rd: Henry the Pickup MARCHING BAND 1st: MEI Middle School 2nd: Royal Canadian Sea Cadets 3rd: Royal Canadian Air Cadets MUSICAL PRESENTATION 1st: Mission Hills Community Church 2nd: Stave Falls Scottish Dancers 3rd: Aerial Dance and Acro Academy The VIP Contest winners, toasty in their red blankets, enjoyed the judge’s stand view with Grab-a-Java and Starbucks hot chocolate and Cobbs Bread cinnamon scones. The Mission Chamber offers a special thank you to this year’s sponsors. Without their participation the parade would not be such a huge success, said chamber manager Michelle Favero.

OPINION

Report cards 2.0? Paper report cards could become a thing of the past and the current teachers’ job action is showing us how. While many people still cling to the idea of children bringing home a piece of paper with grades and comments at the end of term, it may be time to take another look at this standardized approach. What educators now know — and B.C.’s new personalized learning agenda aims to address, at least in principle — is that students have different learning styles and require assessments that are measurable, flexible, adaptable and motivating. Students need a plan that more closely reflects their learning styles, interests and goals instead of a standardized set of outcomes and report cards to match. So far, the province has done a poor job in defining personalized learning and conveying exactly what and how it will change B.C.’s education system — and under the current model of labour relations in education, it’s hard to know how this will be achieved. Still, the teachers’ contract dispute has shown there are many ways to assess and report on student learning. Liberated from many administrative duties, teachers are communicating with parents and students by e-mail and telephone, posting information online, sending home records of individual assignments and outlining specific problems that need to be addressed. What’s more, parents are being encouraged to seek out information about their child’s learning. There will always be a need for some standardized assessment and recording, especially for those headed for university, but a piece of paper at the end of term is not now and never has been a fully meaningful record of success for all students.

B.C. a playground for eco-stunts I f the propaganda flowing over “tar sands” crude shipments across B.C. were oil, the province would be out of deficit by now. U.S.-funded professional environmentalists and their aboriginal partners lined up with the NDP last week to peddle a range of half-truths and falsehoods about proposals to pipe diluted bitumen from Alberta to a new port at Kitimat, where tankers would deliver it to Asian markets. They staged a slick news conference in Vancouver where they claimed to have a seamless wall of aboriginal communities the length of B.C. opposing the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline. This event was co-ordinated with the publication of a report warning of huge risks from piping “tar sands” crude. The report was produced by the Natural Resource Defence Council, the Living Oceans Society and the Pembina Institute. These three obscure organizations are among those identified by independent researcher Vivian Krause on her

website, www.fairquestions. “tar sands” scare report was typepad.com/rethink_camseized on by the B.C. NDP. paigns/.

(The vast majority of emissions from all crude sources come when the refined fuel is burned to truck in your groceries or get you to work.) B.C.’s own Wilderness Committee chimed in, but this eco-show was organized by the local branch office of San Francisco-based ForestEthics. A similar campaign is underway against expansion of the existing Kinder Morgan pipeline from Edmonton to Burnaby, which brings Alberta oilsands crude to ships heading out under the Lions Gate bridge and winding through the Gulf and San Juan Islands to Asia. Tankers have been loading “tar sands” oil in Burnaby for about six years now, but the enviro-propagandists didn’t notice until a couple of years ago. Up until then, Fleming and his colleagues raged about maintaining a “moratorium” on B.C. tanker traffic that never existed.

Share a little magic with a young person

Mixture of visions should be included in municipality’s plan Editor, The Record Congratulations to the newly elected council, and above all, the residents who came out to participate in democracy. As we move forward in an age of consequences to our every action, I can’t help remind myself of the old saying, “The world’s fate will be the one it deserves.” For some time now, the populace has been struck with a worsening case of apathy and I threw my hat in the race in the

hopes that I can bring a different mindset to politics and chip away at this threat to our valued democracy. Although I wasn’t elected, I hope I helped make a small difference in fighting cynicism, but what now? Mission’s political landscape has drastically changed. Many argue that party politics do not work, especially on the municipal level and that the citizen’s voice will not

be heard. After all, our parliamentary system of governance is based on opposing points of view and debate. How will the opposition be expressed when a slate with no opposition and little divergence of opinion controls the ship? I’ll be watching, but even more importantly, I will seek to bring the wonderful ideas that we came up with during this election to council. If we are all doing this for the

betterment of our town and not personal glory, we must then cast aside personal ambition and push the ideas forward. It is only in sharing these ideas that Mission will improve. I invite all the candidates to join me in delivering your ideas to the newly formed council; a mixture of all our visions for the future of Mission can become a road map for our children. Kevin Francis Mission

Councillor felt honoured to serve Editor, The Record: For the last six years, it has been my great pleasure to serve Mission as a councillor. In that time, I have had the opportunity to connect with many of my neighbours and I have been impressed, time and again, by their deep commitment to our community. I have discovered that we are a town rich in resources, with none greater than our people. In the last few months,

many of you have approached me with kind words of gratitude, but the real accolades belong to everyone who contributes to our community fibre day after day. In particular, I want to give thanks to our veterans, firefighters, search and rescue volunteers and first responders. They, along with their supportive families, represent the essence of our civic spirit. These men and women risk their lives

YOUR EYES

and give an incredible amount of time to make us all safer. Our community is built upon the backs of innumerable volunteers, coaches, youth leaders, service club members, congregants, community-minded businesses and other givers who live amongst us. Mission has proven that a community’s leadership clearly rests in the hands of us all. Personally, my com-

mitment to Mission and my community service shall not end as I step away from council. I am merely looking forward to working a little more in the background. I’m deeply grateful for the personal support I have been given as a councillor, but I am even more impressed by your support of our wonderful home. It has been my honour to serve. Paul Horn Mission

Most bears will not hibernate in area’s mild climate: Slater STORIES BY ADRIAN MACNAIR Mission Record

The contract for Mission’s first Bear Aware Coordinator expired at the end of November, but residents still need to keep a watchful eye for the animals. Zoey Slater, who presented a report to council about her six months on the job, said many bears don’t den (hibernate) on the south coast because the climate is too mild. “If there’s a food source for them they’ll stay out longer. The reason they den in the winter is because of a lack of food,” she said. But the bears have found Mission a tasty food source over the past six months, as evidenced by the 453 reported bear sightings this year,

which Slater said is up from the estimated 250 sightings between April and August of last year. “Last week there were several sightings of a bear family, a sow and a couple of cubs, so they’re still out and about.” Slater says a combination of garbage and a late fruit season has prolonged the presence of bears into the colder weather, and she suspects that presence will remain even when it begins snowing. Some bears will even feast on organic compost mounds that take a while to decompose. “It’s important for people to realize that putting their garbage out, or winter bird feeders, if the bears are still out they will get into it.” As many as seven

bears had to be destroyed by conservation authorities this year because they had become too comfortable around humans, which Slater said is a considerable number for a community of Mission’s size. Although there’s no means of calculating the bear population because they aren’t tagged and tracked, Slater subdivided Mission into areas based on curbside collection, sorting them into red, green, blue, yellow and orange. What surprised Slater is the red zone — which produced 38 per cent of all reported sightings — is a densely populated area near Mission’s largest intersection. She said bears have been frequently spotted around Mission Raceway Park and in the forested area just west of Cedar Con-

nector bordering the red zone. There have been fewer sightings in rural areas, which Slater believes may mean the bears have become adjusted to an urban lifestyle. “We can’t say for sure, but maybe there is a correlation between the fact that bears are becoming more used to eating garbage and using that as a food source. And because it’s easily accessible to them, maybe they’re coming into town because of that.” The Bear Aware Coordinator position was created by the district this spring and is jointly funded by the municipality and the Conservation Foundation.

Rot Pots help district exceed targets 20 per cent stronger a GHG than just carbon dioxide (CO2). By composting we’re just creating CO2. So it’s a huge credit when you get organics out of the landfill,” said Younie. Mission has two environmental targets: a corporate target of a 10 per cent reduction of 2008 emissions (2,500 tonnes) by 2015, and a community target of a 20 per cent reduction of 2007 emissions by 2020, followed by an 80 per cent reduction of 2007 levels by 2050. The district isn’t directly reducing all its GHG emissions but the waste diversion creates a carbon offset equivalent to a reduction, said Younie. There are several energy

efficiency proposals that will come before council in 2012 that Younie says will further lower GHG emissions. Mission is one of 179 B.C. municipalities signatory to the Climate Action Charter, which has a mandate of carbon neu-

trality by 2012. But Younie says the hard target of carbon neutrality has been softened by the province this year, and Mission might not be required to purchase carbon offsets at all provided it continues to work toward reducing emissions.

My sincere s thanks thank k ks ...to my election supporters, campaign workers and family members. The past six years have been personally fulfilling, due to the accomplishments of Council and our professional, dedicated staff. I look forward to serving Mission citizens in other roles.

Although the District of Mission won’t become entirely carbon neutral by 2012, the diversion of organic waste has been a big part of reducing its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions according to its environmental services manager. “We’re actually exceeding our targets,” said Mike Younie. That’s because the district can use its food waste diversion project — the Rot Pots which came out this June — as carbon offsets. According to the 2012 Community Report published by the district Nov. 3, Mission currently produces around 2,500 tonnes of GHG emissions and diverts 1,800 tonnes of compost from landfills. Those numbers are expected to change to 1,250 and 2,400 tonnes, respectively, by the end of 2011, significantly lowering the environmental impact. By the end of 2012 it’s expected that Mission’s GHG emissions will drop to 500 tonnes, an 80 per cent reduction. That’s contingent upon energy efficiency projects in municipal buildings being approved as well as diverting 3,300 tonnes of compost from going to landfills. “You’re not generating methane, which is about

BY TOM FLETCHER Black Press

The first local test of the B.C. government’s jobs plan begins today (Dec. 8) in the North Fraser region, with community leaders from Mission, Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows gathering to identify the projects most likely to quickly generate employment. Jobs, Tourism and Innovation Minister Pat Bell is convening the first pilot project for what he calls the “Mackenzie model,” referring to the turnaround of the community north of Prince George that was hit hard by the forest industry downturn. “What we did in Mackenzie was have everyone in the room, local economic development officers, key ministry individuals, the chamber of commerce, union leaders, First Nations,

everyone w there,” was B Bell said i an interin v view. “We i identified w what the Bell key k initiatives were that could have a positive economic impact on the community and who would take responsibility for each element of it.” Two other regions have been chosen for pilot projects to begin in January, Campbell River and the Barriere-to-McBride corridor on Highway 5 north of Kamloops. The three areas represent the range of small to medium to larger urban centres as well as Coastal, Vancouver Island and Interior regions. They were chosen not only for their locations but because they showed they have done groundwork to prepare them, Bell said. For example,

the Barriere region has identified independent power projects, a ski development and agritourism projects that locals believe could be advanced immediately. “I think we need to demonstrate success quickly,” Bell said. “We need to show people that when you collaborate, when you work together, when you use this new kind of format of economic development, that it can achieve results in short order.” He noted that the areas represent a mix of NDP and B.C. Liberal political representation, and their selection was due to their readiness to begin rather than their political leanings. The first meeting will identify a core group of people to lead the effort, and the selection of a list of proposed projects for further study. By the end of January, the North Fraser group should have a short list of projects to focus on. Invest North Fraser Invest North Fraser, a regional economic development initiative of Mission, Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, launched a joint web portal to highlight the investment opportunities north of the Fraser River. The regional web por-

tal provides prospective investors with 24/7 access to information about the North Fraser region’s 600 square kilometres of land and has a simple click-thru to each community’s economic development website. The communities boast large tracts of underdeveloped industrial land, some of the best outdoor recreation in the Lower Mainland and affordable land for development and redevelopment. The North Fraser region is forecast to double in population and employment over the next 30 years. In addition to launching the web portal, other projects in the Invest North Fraser collaborative work plan include hosting investment seminars and bringing in expertise from key industry sectors. Marketing the region and promoting regional assets are key strategies. Stacey Crawford, Mission’s economic development officer, said, “The web portal will serve as a single platform upon which the three partner communities can leverage resources, share information, build relationships and promote regional economic development initiatives.” Visit www.investnorthfraser.com for information.

SafeRide celebrates 20 years of service to youth Youth Unlimited’s SafeRide Home program has begun its 20th year of service to youth in Mission, Abbotsford and Aldergrove. The program, which began in September 1992, provides free rides home every weekend, thanks to donations from individuals, businesses and organizations such as the Kiwanis Club. Doug McKellan, director of SafeRide Home, said about 50 youths use the service every weekend. Of those, the average age is 16, and 56 per cent are girls. Al Maclean began the program in 1992 after three teens he knew were killed in impaired driving accidents within one year. For the first 10 years, the program operated with Maclean using his own car. In 2002, money became available to purchase a vehicle, and Maclean selected a Honda Odyssey mini van because of its safety rating. Last year, an Abbotsford businessman offered to lease a new Odyssey for the program’s use. Honda Way in Abbotsford ensures the vehicles are mechanically safe, and volunteers offer their time to drive the teens. McKellan said an increase in gas prices has resulted in a need for more donations. For information, call 604-835-0380 or email doug@youthunlimited.com.

WCE Santa Trains running Dec. 10, 17 The 15th annual West Coast Express Santa Train will be rolling into town on Dec. 10 and the 17 this year. Each year the West Coast Express (WCE) offers free rides to Waterfront Station and back with the donation of a new, unused and unwrapped toy for the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau. The Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau, established in 1930, currently gathers toys all year round to be distributed to needy children by 12 local bureaus around the Lower Mainland. All toys collected here will go the Mission Christmas Bureau. “We know it is a difficult time of year for the local toy bureaus,” says organizer Kyla Daman-Willems, WCE spokesperson. “We are told every year how much the influx of toys and cash is

appreciated to help families in need.” The train will be leaving Mission City station at 10 a.m. on both days heading to Waterfront station for 11:15 a.m. This year, the second annual open house at Waterfront Station will take place as part of the festivities. From 2:30 p.m. to 5 p.m., both days, Santa Claus will be on hand for photo opportunities, there will be face painting and crafts for children to do, as well as live musical entertainment. People are asked to bring non-perishable food donations for the food bank to the Waterfront Station event. The return train leaves at 5 p.m. • For more information call the West Coast Express at 604-488-8906 or visit www.westcoastexpress.com.

B.C. impaired penalties go too far: judge BY TOM FLETCHER Black Press

The toughest of B.C.’s new impaired driving penalties infringe people’s constitutional right to a fair trial, a B.C. Supreme Court judge has ruled. Ruling on a challenge to the new roadside penalties Wednesday, Justice Jon Sigurdson said the increased roadside penalties for blowing in the “warn” range of blood alcohol, from 0.05 to

0.08 per cent, are permissible. But drivers who blow more than 0.08 should have a chance to defend themselves in court before their vehicles are impounded for 30 days and they face thousands of dollars in administrative penalties, Sigurdson said. Imposing the most severe roadside penalties “is not a reasonable limit which is demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society,” the

judgment says. Defence lawyer Michael Shapray told Black Press the ruling leaves the B.C. government and the police with little choice but to back down on the harsher roadside penalties. “They’re going to have to revert back to the criminal law and take people back for breathalyzer tests at the [police] station,” Shapray said. “They’ll have a right to go to court and challenge those charges.”

Sigurdson ruled that B.C. is within its rights to impose the “warn” penalties. A blood alcohol reading in the “warn” range can result in a threeday driving ban, a $200 “administrative penalty” and another $250 fee to have a driver’s licence reinstated. Drivers may also have their car impounded for three days and be billed for towing and storage. For roadside readings of 0.08 per cent or higher, police have been imposing a 90-day driving ban, a $500 fine and impounding the vehicle for 30 days. That suspension can cost a driver $3,750, including $700 for towing and storage and

$1,420 to take a mandatory “responsible driver” course. Sigurdson did not immediately strike down the new penalties, but asked for submissions from the province and the driver who challenged the penalties to determine what comes next. Last week Premier Christy Clark and Public Safety Minister Shirley Bond celebrated the results of the new roadside penalties, a 40 per cent decline in alcohol-related deaths in the first year. The ruling comes as B.C. launches its annual Christmas CounterAttack campaign, with increased roadblocks across the province to look for impaired drivers.

There have been further changes to B.C.’s impaired driving laws. FILE PHOTO

A Mountie who makes his home in Mission was recognized for his bravery and exemplary service on Thursday at B.C.’s 31st annual Police Honours Night by Lieutenant Governor Steven Point and Solicitor General Shirley Bond. Staff Sgt. Steve Crawford was presented with

an award for assisting a woman being held at knifepoint and confronting the armed suspect while off duty. “These officers showed true courage and selflessness in coming to the aid of citizens in need,” said Maple Ridge-Mission MLA Marc Dalton. “I’m very pleased to see them

honoured for their bravery; it shows why we are so fortunate to have police officers of their calibre serving our community.” Crawford is currently stationed in Burnaby. Province-wide, 69 officers received awards: • 43 for meritorious service, which involves actions above the call of duty

that enhance the image of policing in B.C. • 22 for valourous service – that is, exemplary service in the face of extreme hazard and personal risk. • One retired RCMP deputy commissioner and three retired chief constables, for outstanding service.

Corrections officers intercept drugs Mission Institution correctional officers caught an inmate trying to bring drugs into the local prison Nov. 21. Staff seized 92 grams of heroin, one vial of hash oil, one gram

of pot and four ecstasy tablets; the institutional value is $18,900, said an institution press release. The RCMP was notified and the institution is investigating. The Correctional Service of

Canada has set up a telephone tip line (1-866-780-3784) at all federal institutions to provide an additional source for receiving information about illicit activities in prisons.

Province sitting on Fraser Health Authority ‘11 plan BY JEFF NAGEL Black Press

The year is almost over but Fraser Health has yet to release its 2011 service plan that details its priorities and spending – information critics say is needed to scrutinize the authority’s $2.5 billion budget and hold its appointed board to account. Service plans previously were released in early fall – already months late for a fiscal year that begins April 1. But this year all health

Santa Train Rolls into Town, December 10th and 17th

authority service plans remain stuck in Victoria, where provincial government officials say more work continues to finalize them. “The ministry has been busy working with health authorities to ensure the information and the data is accurate,” a ministry spokesman said. “This work is important because these plans lay out a complex, three-year operational plan.” He said the reports should be released within a few weeks.

NDP leader Adrian Dix called the delay ridiculous and said it reflects a continuing government effort to hide the details of health spending and planning. “Only a Liberal government would consider it good practice to release a plan for a year starting April 1 after Dec. 1,” Dix said. Service plans were originally created on a promise to bring “transparency, openness and accountability” to health planning. “They’ve stripped the

service plans in previous years of many of their indicators and now they can’t even get those out on time,” Dix said. Health authority service plans originally had 77 performance indicators to measure patient care, hospital wait times and other objectives. But many of the ones that turned up bad results were quietly dropped. By 2010, just eight performance measures remained, although the province said the changes were just to standardize reporting.

Initiatives underway show Mission open for business C hristmas is always a perfect time for a good news story and herald it from rooftops, that Mission is open for business. With initiatives that have been achieved in the last year — coupled with a new mayor and council, that list economic development as a key mandate — change is in the wind for Mission’s economic potential. In November, Invest North Fraser (INF), a regional economic development initiative of Maple Ridge, Mission and Pitt Meadows, launched a joint web portal to highlight the investment opportunities north of the Fraser River. “The District of Mission is very pleased to be a partner in INF and welcomes the launch of the new web portal. It will serve as a single platform upon which the three partner communities can leverage resources, share information, build relationships and promote regional economic development initiatives,” said Stacey Crawford, Mission’s economic development ofÄcer. Additionally, this week, the Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Innovation has partnered with INF to host a regional economic investment pilot aimed at attracting investment, identifying opportunities, economic diversiÄcation and job creation in areas consistent with the BC Jobs Plan. The forum to be held Dec. 8 includes representatives from local government, business, industry, First Nations and education. It will explore investment opportunities and share solutions to overcoming barriers. By the end of the forum, an inventory of potential projects and an initial action plan on how best to implement them will have been created. The provincial government will assist the North Fraser by developing an intensiÄed approach to capitalize on those opportunities. “The North Fraser communities have a lot to offer the B.C. economy. We are rich in resources and have abundant agricultural land. This forum will help the Fraser Valley work together to attract investment,

create jobs and show the world Canada really does start here,” states Abbotsford-Mission MLA Randy Hawes. While work is being done to attract economic development to Mission, municipal staff have been working to break down some of the barriers and red tape that have impeded the process to development. At a recent CHBA-FV Dinner, Mission’s deputy chief administrative ofÄcer, Paul Gipps, relayed the many changes that have been implemented as part of the development A-team strategy. He spoke to the modiÄcations to department process, legal process and communication. The customerfocused initiative includes focus and speed, rapid decisions and a “can-do” attitude. Projects that haven’t checked in for more than 10 days are contacted, clear lines of communication are developed and proponents meet with a team from all departments that will have input in the process. “Our job is not to impede your process,” noted Gipps. “We want to hear from you what market demand is. We look to partner with you.” He concluded with the message that the district understands time is money for the builders and developers and that there is a willingness to work with them to minimize the impact of red tape. With three major commercial undertakings to be complete in 2012 and other developments poised to start, Mission is deÄnitely looking like it is open for business.

Varsity claims AA provincial title S TORIES R OESSLE SAKAKI

BY AND

J ASON G REG

Mission Record

The varsity Mission Roadrunners are provincial champions. After losing in the semi-finals to the John Barsby Bulldogs last year, the senior football squad from Mission secondary edged out this same team 16-12 to clinch the B.C. AA title Saturday afternoon at BC Place stadium. The Roadrunners got off to a fast and early scoring start after quarterback Kevin Wiens popped a four-yard pass to Jesse Forcier who carried it into the endzone. The second quarter saw no score, but by the third, Forcier rushed four yards again for another TD, and Erik DiGuistini nailed a 21-yard field goal to round out the Roadrunners’ effort. Midway through the fourth quarter the Bulldogs had a chance to take its first lead, but fumbled on Mission’s five-yard line, the fourth drop of the day. Barsby’s Robert Morris gave his team one final opportunity, intercepting a pass on his own four-yard line, but the ’Dawgs couldn’t gain ground and punted the football away with three and a half minutes left. They never got it back. “It hurts like hell,” said Rob Stevenson, coach of the Bulldogs. “The harder you work for something, the harder it is when you come up short.” Mission’s players of the game were standouts Kevin Wiens and Jesse Forcier. Barsby lineman Jordan Kuziek won a player of the game award. Wiens said when the opposition threatened, his team dug in. “We just thought about the goal, what we wanted most, and that was the championship…” he said. “It feels fantastic.” Forcier said the team’s plan was “to work hard every single play. It didn’t really matter how

we started, it’s about how you finish.” For head coach Kevin Watrin, this victory cements all the hard work of the past nine years. “The emotions ranged from surreal to relief to excitement,” he said. “We knew it would be a real battle ... Barsby is a very physical team, but we were expecting that kind of game.” Watrin said the close score was definitely indicative of the wellmatched teams. “It comes down to one or two plays going differently. We never gave up the big plays,” he said. The Roadrunners were able to contain the Bulldogs running game, and kept the big passing plays from happening. Watrin admits the win is starting to sink in. The day after the championship game, the coach said every 10 to 15 minutes he’d look over at his wife and say, “We did it.” By the numbers: Offence highlights: • Kevin Wiens: 8/15; 172 yards; one touchdown; 57 yards rushing. • Jesse Forcier: 77 yards on 13 rushing attempts; one touchdown; one reception for four yards and a touchdown. • Hadley Gwyn: two catches, 55 yards. Defence highlights: • Erik DiGuistini: two interceptions for 56 yards; one fumble recovery. On offence he also had a 45-yard catch, made a 21 yard field goal, and had 147 yards in kick-offs. • Zac Chamberland: 10 tackles • Rhys Parry: seven tackles • Hadley Gwyn: six tackles • Hyatt Smyth: eight tackles

Barsby edges JVs for the win In a narrow loss, the junior varsity Mission Secondary School Roadrunners failed to cement back-to-back provincial titles Saturday morning. “We just needed two to tie it,” said coach John Kapty. And while ultimately the team didn’t return with the prize, it was still the best played game of the year. “We played really well and our mindset was to be prepared and give them everything we got.” Facing off against the John Barsby Bulldogs, the same team they defeated last year for the AA championship, the Roadrunners were out to an early 14-0 lead heading late into the game. The Nanaimo team fought back and eventually overtook the local

squad. Touchdowns from Dejon Lynch and Nick Johnson and two twopoint conversions gave Barsby a 16-14 halftime lead, and they extended the margin on a 62yard TD run by Brandon Parker in the fourth quarter. Mission answered with a touchdown of its own to make the score 22-20, then recovered an onside kick with two minutes left. While attempting to get into field goal range, the Roadrunners tried for eight straight passes, each one failing to connect with its intended receiver, which set up the close loss. “Overall, the team improved a lot over this season,” said Kapty. “In that way it felt good.”

Opening Night Theatre (ONT) is taking a popular culture spin on the Christmas “panto,” with a production of Star Warz, accompanied by music from the Beatles. Producer Camille Knight has written the panto every year since ONT started community theatre in Mission five years ago. The panto (short for pantomime) is a popular British tradition, usually involving a well-known fairytale told in a silly way. The panto has a lot of cross-dressing tradition to go along with the silliness. The lead male and female roles are usually both played by women, while the “dame,” an old female character, is played by a man. In Star Warz, Jabba the Hutt is played by Gerwin Mills, who recently portrayed Abraham Van Helsing during their production of the

Chewbacca, who is more simian than Wookie in appearance but nevertheless fits the hairy bill. Dracula director Tony Loyer plays the role of Han Solo. Of course, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia and other characters are also in the play, and the storyline is loosely based on the first three films that defined early 1980s pop culture. All through the show, in traditional panto fashion, the characters sporadically burst into song so as to better explain the situation. The songs are all from the Beatles, with the lyrics rejigged to better suit the Star Wars theme. The show runs from Fridays to Sundays from Dec. 9 until Jan. 8. Tickets are $12 for adults, $6 for children (free under age 3), and the family pass (two adults and two children) is $30. Tickets are available at Murdoch’s Book Shoppe or at the door at 33135 North Railway Ave. in Mission.

Death of Dracula, who has filled the dame role in previous years. Jabba was turned into a female, explains Knight, because Star Wars has few female characters. The role of the dame is always a “grotesque cross-dressing” so you’re never under any illusion it’s a real female, she said. The ONT panto has always had two fairies who battle it out in previous years and attempt to influence events in the story. This time Fairy Naughty, played by Susan Dearing from Dracula, travels to a galaxy far, far away to become Darth Vader, while Fairy Nice, played by Jennie Bice, becomes the wise Yoda. “In the very traditional pantomime in the U.K. there’s a lot of double entendres and innuendo but it’s also aimed at kids. The kids love the silly slapstick and the adults like the stuff that goes over the kids’ heads.” Camille Knight plays

Tickets are $20 and the show starts at 7:30 p.m.

The holiday spirit will fill the air, and smiles will be on every face at the Clarke Foundation Theatre this Saturday. Renowned as one of the best Christmas shows in the Lower Mainland, Christmas at the Clarke provides an inexpensive, fun-filled night for the whole family. It also helps out two worthwhile community charities: the Christmas Bureau and the shelter programs operated by the Women’s Resource Society of the Fraser Valley. The show will feature music for every discriminating taste: blues, jazz, rock ‘n roll, old Celtic tunes and country. The valley’s own Crystal Hicks, whose tremendous voice has been compared to Ella Fitzgerald and Etta James, along with the band Horizon will be there. In high demand all over the valley, the band consists of five talented musicians from the lower

Fraser Valley. Playing Christmas favourites with swing, blues, rockin’ soul, R&B, country and classic old time rock ‘n roll elements, people are going to love this band. One of the most popular groups in the valley, and a favorite at the Merritt Mountain Music Festival, Topaz will be performing this year. Playing a little country, blues and classic rock Christmas tunes like only they can, the band is looking forward to playing at the event again. Topaz has played in a number of big venues, including the Cloverdale rodeo, and always leave the audience asking for more. Having brought great music, smiles and laughter to the event in previous years, the crowd favorite, 1066 will be back this year, entertaining with a diverse range of Celtic, folk, rock, jazz and blues. Susan Dearing, a well-

known local actress, singer and songwriter, will start the show with one of her favorite Christmas tunes. Dearing has been a longtime member of Opening Nite Theatre and organizers are looking forward to having her perform at the Benefit. As well, popular Canucks singer “Mr. O Canada”, Mark Donnelly, has volunteered his booming voice for a few carols. No Christmas show would be complete without a great choir, and the quartet Four Real will fit that bill nicely. The doors open at 6:30 p.m., giving folks a chance to drop off donations for the food bank, and seating starts at 7. As the HPSS choir softly fills the lobby with Christmas carols, grandparents, moms and dads, children and grandchildren along with their friends can mingle and get into the holiday spirit.

Irish harpist performs at St. Andrew’s church Two decades ago, Irish harpist and story-teller Patrick Ball recorded a Christmas album and gave it the name The Christmas Rose after a beautiful traditional melody his mother loved from her childhood. The recording was awarded the National Association of Independent Record Distributors Indie Award for Best Seasonal Recording of 1991, became a best seller, and prompted many requests for a live concert which would feature the pieces on the recording with a selection of beloved seasonal stories. Ball brings a magical world of English and Irish literature, Celtic legend and traditional folk beliefs, drawing out tales, legends and stories, and mingles them with music of winter, Solstice, and the Christmas season. The result is the Christmas Rose concert. The stories and music

Take in some classic comedy Mission Secondary’s Drama department will be putting up a production of the hilarious 1936 comedy You Can’t Take It With You on Dec. 8-10 in their studio theatre at the northwest end of the school.

Come laugh with us over the insanity that is humankind. Tickets available by calling the school at 604826-7191 for reservations or at the door contingent upon availability. Curtain is at 7 p.m.

This year features carols from the British Isles – Scotland, the Isle of Mann, Ireland, Wales as well as regional carols from around England. Woven through the program is a complete telling of A Child’s Christmas in Wales with our favourite narrator Brian Murdoch. And, as always, there will be a festive reception following the concert. Sing Joy takes place at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 9, at St. Andrew’s United Church. Doors will open at 7.

There is something intrinsically ennobling about work; a certain dignity that comes from labor, and seemingly all the more so the more menial or “dirty” the work is. A mother shows just how much she loves her child in cleaning their soiled diaper, precisely because this is the kind of dirty work that nobody wants to do. Similarly, nurses and nurses’ aides are ennobled by the fact that they clean and dress their patients’ wounds and empty their bedpans. They must overcome their natural aversion to these things, and therein lies the virtue and nobility of doing these so-called “dirty” jobs. Teachers and customer service representatives are often underpaid and underappreciated for their work, even though they serve an undeniably crucial function in society. The Bible is full of examples of people doing good, honest work. Peter was a fisherman, until Jesus made him a fisher of men, and Jesus himself was a carpenter. Furthermore, God’s love for us is often explained by comparing God to a worker. In Matthew 6:26 He is a provider of food: “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.” And two verses on, He is a tailor providing “clothes” for the flowers of the field. Any work that aims at helping others or improving the world, is aiding God in the ongoing work of creation. Thank God every day for the opportunity to work.

Christmas tree fire safety tips As you deck the halls this holiday season, be fire smart. A small fire that spreads to a Christmas tree can grow large very quickly. Picking the tree Choose a tree with fresh green needles that do not fall off when touched. Placing the tree Before placing the tree in the stand, cut 1-2” from the base of the trunk. Make sure the tree is at least three feet away from any heat source, like fireplaces, radiators, candles, heat vents or lights. Make sure the tree is not blocking an exit. Add water to the tree stand. Be sure to add water daily. Lighting the tree Use lights that have the label of an independent testing laboratory. Some lights are only for indoor or outdoor use. Replace any string

of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Connect no more than three strands of mini string sets and a maximum of 50 bulbs for screw-in bulbs. Read manufacturer’s instructions for number of LED strands to connect. Never use lit candles to decorate the tree. Always turn off Christmas tree lights before leaving home or going to bed. After Christmas Get rid of the tree after Christmas or when it is dry. Driedout trees are a fire danger and should not be left in the home or garage, or placed outside against the home.

Winter weather garbage I’m dreaming of a collection can be woeful green Christmas Manoeuvring garbage trucks down narrow streets and steep slopes on icy roads can be a daunting task, not only putting garbage collectors, but other road users, at risk. Even if roads appear clear, snow banks may prevent collection vehicles from pulling off to the side, creating hazards for motorists and pedestrians. Cancelled garbage collections as a result of winter road conditions undoubtedly present an inconvenience to residents, but are sometimes necessary to ensure everyone’s safety. If your garbage was left at the curbside due to road conditions, please check the District’s website at www.mission.ca, call

the collection contractor at 604-820-6487, or listen to Country 107.1 for updated collection information. Should collection be postponed until the following week, please bring your garbage, compost and recyclables back inside to avoid attracting wildlife. Instead of the usual two, you will be allowed to set out two garbage bins and two garbage bags (max. 80L capacity and 20 kg weight each) on your regular collection day the following week. If your garbage, recyclables or compost were the only materials missed on your street, please verify that they were at the curb by 8 a.m., that they were visible and accessible,

Not all garbage and recycling can be picked up in a timely manner when the winter conditions are difficult. BLACK PRESS PHOTO

Nominations will be accepted under the following categories: • Conservation of Built Environment, Streetscapes and Landscapes 1. Conservation or Restoration of a Heritage Building 2. Adaptation of a Heritage Building 3. Construction of a New Building or Development 4. Additions to Existing Heritage Building 5.

conforming materials should have received a sticker, explaining why pickup was suspended. If materials were left behind for no apparent reason, please phone the collection contractor directly at 604-8206487. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience. The District’s Engineering Department can be reached at 604820-3736.

Please note that both the Mission Landfill and the Recycling Depot will be closing at 3 p.m. on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. Both facilities will also be closed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day, as well as on New Year’s Day. As every year, residents within the curbside collection area will be able to place double the regular amount of garbage at the curb during the week immediately following Christmas. For the purposes of this special collection arrangement, it will be acceptable to set out additional garbage in bags, for a total of two bins and two bags. Please make as much use of Mission’s recycling and composting programs as possible

this holiday season to reduce landfill use. Remember that all food waste should be separated from the regular garbage and placed in your Rot Pot or yard waste bin. Compostable food waste includes meat, bones, bread, all table scraps and paper napkins. Please store your Rot Pot, garbage bins, yard waste containers and blue bags inside or in a wildlife resistant enclosure until the morning of collection to avoid luring bears and other wildlife into residential neighbourhoods. Bears, who are still at large late into fall, are attracted by smells and will investigate anything they perceive as a potential food source. Gift wrap, due to its ink content and low paper grade, is not

recyclable. Consider making the packaging part of the gift by wrapping presents in tea towels, scarves, reusable tins or boxes. Likewise, Styrofoam is not recyclable, so should be avoided whenever possible or placed with the garbage. Some stores may offer take-back options for Styrofoam, so check at the time of purchase. Ever wonder how we arrived at producing so much waste? Take 20 minutes out of your day and watch the entertaining and enlightening movie “The Story of Stuff” at www.storyofstuff. org/movies-all/storyof-stuff.

The winter season is the worst season for fire in Canada. That’s why all Canadians must be mindful of the importance of fire prevention and safety. Heating appliances such as space heaters should not have anything combustible close by and need at least 1 meter of space around them. Inspect the electrical cord attached. If it overheats you have a fire hazard. Keep children away from them. Electrical and heating systems can fail and become fire hazards. Ensure they are checked regularly by a professional, especially prior to winter season, especially when fireplaces, heaters, and appliances and other electrical equipment are in maximum use. If even a small doubt exists about any appliance/equipment that

you use, do not hesitate to contact a qualified technician. It may save lives. A fireplace becomes dangerous when accumulated tar or creosote catches fire or from uncontrolled burning or over-fuelling. Other causes of fireplace-related fire are substandard design or installation and lack of safety precautions. • Open the damper before lighting the fire and keep it open until the ashes are cool enough to touch. • Ensure the fire is completely out before leaving it unattended. • Do not store combustible materials close to the fireplace. • Use a screen in front of the fireplace opening to protect children and to prevent embers from escaping and igniting. • Never leave children alone near a fireplace. • Use dry, wellseasoned wood in small amounts. • Have chimneys cleaned and serviced at regular intervals by a professional. • Never overload your fireplace. • Never use charcoal started fluids, gasoline or any flammable substance to start fires. • When using artificial logs, burn only one at a time and following instructions on the wrapping. • Always place the ashes in a metal container and take them outside the house.

P L A N N I N G D E PA R T M E N T The purpose of the proposed amendment is to accommodate the subsequent subdivision of the subject property into two (2) lots of a minimum 0.7 hectare (1.73 ac.) lot size. Copies of the proposed bylaws and reports relevant to these bylaws may be inspected at the Municipal Hall, 8645 Stave Lake Street, Mission, BC, Monday to Friday, excluding statutory holidays, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., from December 1, 2011 to December 12, 2011.

Edna Emma Webb March 23, 1917 - Dec. 3, 2011 Edna passed away peacefully on December 3, 2011, at Mission, B.C. She was predeceased by her loving husband Jack Webb and is survived by her children, Marlene and Beverly and grandchildren, Dale, Shelley, Kevin and great-grandchildren, Alisha, Kylie and Brandon. Edna will be dearly missed. She will be remembered for her overwhelming generosity; her love for her family and for her sharp wit and sense of humour, which she maintained right to the end. Though we are saddened by our loss, we celebrated 94 years of life well-lived. We are grateful for the legacy she leaves behind. A special thank you to the staff at the Mission Stuart Pavilion, who all provided Edna with outstanding care and kindness. The family plans are for a private celebration of her life, to be followed by a graveside service, at Hatzic Cemetery in Mission. In lieu of flowers, donations made in Ednaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memory to the Heart & Stroke Foundation are greatly appreciated.

FALK Maria April 30, 1937 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Dec. 1, 2011

Maria, a wife, mother, Oma, sister and friend passed away peacefully into the presence of God on December 1, 2011 after a courageous battle with ALS. Maria is survived by her loving husband of 49 years, Gerhard; son, Marvin (Natasha), 3 grandchildren, Taylor, Joshua and Nicole; 2 brothers, Isaac (Erna) and Gottfried; 2 sisters, Susie and Katherina (John Waassar). She was predeceased by her parents, David and Susanne Thiessen, her brother David and bother-in-law Hans Stobbe. Maria was born on April 30, 1937 in Einlage, Russia. At the age of 6, the family travelled by train to Germany where they lived in camps and villages for the next 7 years. From there, they immigrated to Uruguay where Maria accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Saviour. At the age of 24, she married Gerhard Falk and resided in Friesland, Paraguay for the next 5 years. From there, Maria and her husband immigrated to the USA where their only son, Marvin was born. After a few years, Maria and her family immigrated to Canada, living in Vancouver for 12 years and settling in Abbotsford for the rest of her life. Maria was a loving wife, caring mother and Oma and a faithful servant of Jesus Christ whom she loved and trusted fully. She was an inspiration and blessing to those whose lives she touched. She lived life to the fullest and enjoyed traveling, walking, entertaining and having her grandchildren around. She had an amazing gift of hospitality and had a sincere interest in others. Maria was deeply loved and will be missed dearlyâ&#x20AC;Ś but we find comfort in the knowledge that we will see her again in heaven someday soon. Viewing will be held at King Road Church on Wednesday, December 7, 2011 at 9:00 ~ 9:30 am. A celebration of Mariaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life will follow at King Road M.B. Church at 11:30 am.

RAY Marion If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I’d walk right up to heaven and bring you home again!!

Marion went home to be with her heavenly Father suddenly, Thursday December 1st, 2011. Marion was born December 18, 1924 in Vancouver to loving parents Hilda and Reginald Allard. Growing up as an only child, she had many friends and enjoyed all childlike activities and hobbies including fishing, play sports, gardening, oil painting and her passion...playing the piano. Mom married her soul mate Wilf Ray in 1954 and has had 57 beautiful years with him. Marion experienced every stage of life graciously and took much pride in her children, her home, and her relationships with others. A social butterfly whose beautiful blue eyes sparkled and heartwarming smile brightened the room. She had a remarkable way of making someone else’s day better then her’s even though the pain grew deep and set in throughout her body in her latter years. Our loving mother and wife is survived by her husband Wilf, her 3 daughters Sharon, Robin and Leeann, 6 grandsons, 2 granddaughters, 6 great grandchildren and 1 great great grandchild. Also, her loving animal companions her poodle Tino and cat Skittles. Predeceased by her grandson David Nicholas Hayes Jr., August 2006.

Ruth Lilian Born 1910 June 19, passed away peacefully, 2011 Dec 4. Predeceased by her husband Frank Proctor her twin brother Frank (2006) and her older brothers George and Stanley. She is remembered with love by her step-children Pamela Proctor (John Roper), Joanne (Terry) Walton, Mark (Diane) Proctor and grandchildren Margot and Brendon Ogmundson (Jacob, Henry and Andrew), Pam and Darwin Hayward (William), Dave and Annie Proctor and Joe and Breanne Proctor and her many relatives and friends in Canada, the USA, and the Netherlands. Ruth was born in Vancouver and moved to the Willow Valley near the Crowsnest Pass as she entered grade two. She grew up on the Prairies and loved the outdoor life riding her horse Bugle to school each day. While her brothers stayed to operate the ranch Ruth left home to pursue nurse’s training in Edmonton. Her nursing career spanned 45 years and took her across Canada. She settled in Mission nursing for doctors in private practise then at Mission Memorial Hospital from where she retired as Head Nurse. After eight years of active retirement, she married Frank Proctor. Frank and Ruth were active in their Mission community at Royal Canadian Legion Branch 57 and All Saint’s Anglican Church. Ruth was capable and alert far into her elderly years and managed the care of her parents and her husband as well as being responsible for her own well-being until the last. Her family and friends enjoyed her fun loving spirit. She was definite and resolute in her actions and her professional nursing back ground served her and all who knew her well. The family extends their warmest thanks to the Cedars and Christine Morrison Hospice and their respective staffs for their loving care. A funeral service will be held on Monday December 12 at 11:00 am at All Saint’s Anglican Church, 33077 2nd Avenue, Mission.
