He was referring to his two teenage sons and two teen nephews who live with him in a small, two-bedroom apartment in Mission.

Crown wants extra jail time for predator ROCHELLE BAKER RBaker@abbotsfordtimes.com

rown counsel wants more jail time for an Abbotsford man convicted of the sexual luring of youth as more allegations have surfaced about an online relationship he was cultivating with a teenage boy.

When Goddard was arrested at his halfway house, police discovered two computers, an Xbox and an active Internet account under his name. Goddard, the subject of three APD public safety warnings, has a criminal history of luring youth for sexual purposes over the Internet. He received 20 months behind bars in June, 2011 after pleading

guilty to invitation to sexual touching, luring a child under 16 using a computer, impersonating a police officer and two breaches of bail conditions. He was released on parole in February, at which time the police alerted the public about Goddard’s court conditions that included no contact with youth or any access to the Internet. Judge Brent Hoy postponed sentencing for a second time until he could get a probation report before making a decision. Goddard is expected to appear in court again in late January.

◗ Opinion

I don’t second that amendment A

few months ago I mentioned in this space that I don’t think that guns, by themselves, are the problem. But I don’t agree with groups like the National Rifle Association and their asinine “guns don’t kill people” mantra either. The problem is that people think that guns are magic wands that can solve their problems. Some people try to “solve” their problems – real or imaginary – by shooting up schools, malls, and offices. To the NRA, the solution is, of course, more magic wands, to “solve” the mass shooting issue by shooting the shooters. It goes without saying that, although many, many people in the United States have guns, this has only happened a tiny number of times. More shooters have been arrested, shot by police, or simply tackled by bystanders than have been gunned down by vigilantes. Here in Canada, we have had remarkably few rampage-style shootings over the past few decades. The slaughter by a deranged misogynist at Montreal’s Ecole Polytechnique was followed by stricter gun laws, and a general revulsion towards gun violence. But in Canada, while politicians may argue about what gun controls are appropriate, there are no constitutional barriers to trying out various laws. In the U.S., there’s that pesky Second Amendment, which says

MATTHEW CLAXTON

the painful truth something about a militia and “right to bear arms.” In fact, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia seems to take an admirably literal view of this passage. Scalia is an “originalist” who believes that the founding fathers were pretty darn near perfect, and that their words shouldn’t be interpreted as if they contained any pesky metaphors. So this is what he said when asked about whether bazookas would count as “bearing arms.” “We’ll see. Obviously the amendment does not apply to arms that cannot be hand-carried – it’s to keep and ‘bear,’ so it doesn’t apply to cannons – but I suppose there are hand-held rocket launchers that can bring down airplanes, that will have to be decided.” So, that’s a solid maybe on the surface-to-air missile front. If I can, I’ll make a suggestion to Scalia and his buddies on the top court. I know I’m a lefty Canadian, suckled at the teat of socialist medicine and multiculturalism, but frankly, I think I can go one better. Americans have the right to

bear any and all arms – which were in circulation at the time the Second Amendment was written. The amendment was adopted in 1791, so the following would be acceptable weapons:

■ Smoothbore muskets ■ Muzzle-loading rifles ■ Single-shot muzzle-loading pistols ■ Bayonets ■ Cavalry swords Put that in your originalist pipe and smoke it, Scalia! You know what? I’ll be generous and throw in muzzle-loading black powder cannons. But no shortcuts! You’ll have to push it into place yourself on an authentic wooden gun carriage! I suppose we could allow for the vast diversity of pre-1791 weapons as well, which will give weapons collectors a crazy smorgasboard including spadroons, bardiches, zweihanders, flamberges, mambele, odachi. the list is basically endless. There are a few downsides to using these weapons. Most of them take a lot more skill and training than a laser-sighted, semi-automatic, assault rifle. This makes them less efficient at murdering large groups of people. What a shame that would be. ■ Visit Matthew Claxton’s blog at tinyurl.com/7mwo2qj.

ith so many people in need in our community and our world, it’s hard to resist the temptation to throw up our hands and do nothing sometimes. What’s the point of scratching the surface with isolated acts of charity? Some even say such efforts, unless they’re aimed at root problems, are counterproductive. “Don’t give the guy on the street corner a toonie. He’ll just use it for drugs.” “Don’t give the third-world guy a fish. Teach him to fish instead.” Wise as those sentiments might be, most of us don’t respond by educating ourselves about complex social problems and getting more involved in tackling them. Many of us respond by throwing up our hands and doing nothing. But letting the perfect solution be the enemy of good deeds when it comes to charity not only cuts us off from doing what we can, it also gets us out of the habit of giving. That’s why for so many years we at the Times are happy to have had the chance to do at least one solid good deed every Christmas through the Abbotsford-Mission Times-Fix AutoNissan Car Giveaway. It’s nice to know that right now a single dad and his kids are driving around town without having to worry about whether their vehicle will make it home. It’s nice to know a dad who’s trying to build a better life for his kids here in Abbotsford and Mission now has one less obstacle to overcome. And it’s nice to know we’ve been a part of that. It might not have ended world hunger, but one little family is happier because of the Christmas Car Giveaway, and those of us who’ve been involved, have once again been reminded how great it feels to give.

Realtors gift $20,000 to hospice

CHRISTMAS CONCERT YALE-TIDE JOY

Fraser Valley Real Estate Board helps Abbotsford society

T

he Fraser Valley Real Estate Board gave Abbotsford Hospice Society an early Christmas present recently The FVREB gifted $20,000 to the AHS’s future adult hospice. The donation will go towards the creation of a water feature in the future garden of Holmberg House, where construction is slated to get underway in January, 2013. Scott Olson, president of the FVREB, explained that Realtors devote themselves to helping people find the perfect home and that Holmberg House will be exactly that. “As the final home for so many special people, we wanted to help make it feel as welcoming and comforting as possible,” said Olson. The feature, designed specifically for the grounds of Holmberg House, is a waterfall flowing into a pebble stream surrounded by garden foliage. The building itself will be the only hospice in Abbotsford to provide holistic care in a non-institutional setting with patient suites large enough to accommodate visiting family and friends. The 10-bed facility will care for patients as young as 19 facing terminal illness. AHS requires $12 million for the capital costs and is currently halfway to meeting its goal. Debbie Lehmann, AHS executive director, said the society is thrilled with

region while also providing bereavement support for families, along with public education, outreach and community referrals. For more information on the AHS visit abbotsfordhospice.org.

Car winner “just so overwhelmed and thankful” GIVEAWAY, from page A1 for the annual Christmas Car Giveaway. Pam Somerville has known him for years. “He is an awesome dad to his kids or to everyone he meets. John doesn’t ask for anything. He gives his all into anything he does,” she wrote in her nomination letter. Mary Holtby has known Leggat for six months and was thrilled to see her friend receive the car on Thursday. “I’m very touched to see that people would go out of their way to do this for him, and help him out at a time in his life when he really needs a hand up,” said Holtby. With the economic downturn of recent years, Leggat lost his roofing company, his home, his truck, his savings and his marriage ended. He now lives in a small apartment with his two sons and two nephews, and struggles to find work in construction without a vehicle. That may now change, thanks to his ‘new’ car. “It’ll make a huge difference in him securing steady employment and helping him get a better place [to live]

It’s truly a gift from the community.” Other businesses, stepping up as sponsors included: Aggressive Towing (towing

between shops); Sherwin Williams (paint for the car); HUB International Barton Insurance (for one year of car insurance); Keystone Parts (donated parts); and Wagonmaster Distributors (a year’s worth of oil and fluids). As dozens of folks and Fix Auto employees gathered in the shop for the unveiling, Leggat was hugged and congratulated by many friends. He just kept on smiling.

“He’s not expressive, but I know he’s really touched,” said Holtby. “It’s so fantastic.” ■ Thursday’s emotional Christmas car giveaway was also captured by Global TV, and featured as the closing segment on Thursday evening’s News Hour broadcast.

rolled off night shifts and arrived to labour on the house, said Bird. In the meantime, area businesses, residents, church groups and coffee klatches showed up with hot food and drink to make sure the labourers never went hungry. More than 200 people have committed thousands of dollars in materials or volunteer hours to the project. “Our budget was zero dollars,” said Bird. “We haven’t paid one dollar. Absolutely everything has been donated.” Bird stressed Abbotsford’s police and fire departments were just ambassadors for what in essence was a community project. “It was the community that stepped up,” he said. “Everybody’s kindness and graciousness has been overwhelming.” Const. Walker, who has done everything on site from pushing a broom to operating an excavator, said despite spending long hours away from his young family, the project was one of the most rewarding experiences in his life. “We have these unfortunate situations that put people in a bad place,” he said. “But when the community comes together this is an example of what can happen.”

Quintin Laing of the Heat will be captain of the Western Conference All-Star team Jan. 27-28.

uintin Laing of the Abbotsford Heat and Trent Whitfield of the Providence Bruins have been selected to serve as playing captains for the 2013 Dunkin’ Donuts AHL All-Star Classic, to be held Jan. 27-28 in Providence, R.I. Captains for the American Hockey League All-Star teams are selected by the league president in recognition of their outstanding service and leadership to the AHL. Laing, now in his 13th professional season, has appeared in 650 career AHL contests with Norfolk, Hershey and Abbotsford. He registered 95 goals and 167 assists for 262

points and won a Calder Cup with the Bears in 2009. Drafted by Detroit in 1997, Laing is one of the AHL’s top defensive forwards and has worn the captain’s “C” in each of his three AHL stops – including the last two seasons with the Heat. Laing, who has played 79 NHL games with Chicago and Washington, will be making his AHL All-Star Classic debut as captain of the Western Conference AllStar team. The 2013 Dunkin’ Donuts AHL All-Star Classic in Providence will feature the top young talent in the American Hockey League competing in a two-day event

to be televised nationally in the U.S. and Canada. Of the 597 players to take part in the AHL All-Star Classic since the event was reinstated in 1995, more than 92 percent have competed in the National Hockey League, including Patrice Bergeron, Daniel Briere, Ryan Callahan, Mike Cammalleri, Zdeno Chara, Miikka Kiprusoff, Zach Parise, Pekka Rinne, Bobby Ryan, Martin St. Louis, Cory Schneider, Jason Spezza, Eric Staal, and others. Tickets for the 2013 AHL AllStar Classic are on sale now by calling the Providence Bruins at (401) 273-5000 or visiting www. providencebruins.com.

The Cochise College Apaches won their third consecutive championship last year by claiming the Arizona Community College Athletic Conference title outright. It was the Runnin’ Apaches’ second ACCAC title in the last three years. The team also won 17 straight games en route to a 25-win season and another Top 20 finish in the final NJCAA Division I National polls, claiming the No. 18 slot in the NJCAA final poll. South Mountain CC Cougars is gearing up for next season to revisit Danville, Ill. for another crack at the national title. The Phoenix College Bears are home of the four time region one district one champions, 2008 NJCAA Men’s Basketball Academic Team of the Year, 2007 & 2009 NJCAA Academic All American Team. UFV men’s squad is 7-3 and sits in second place, one game behind the UBC Thunderbirds (82) in the Pacific Division of Canada West. UFV is currently ranked sixth in the CIS Top 10 poll.

Cascades’ cancer fundraiser The University of the Fraser Valley women’s basketball team will host a fundraiser in partnership with the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation on Jan. 24 at Finnegan’s Pub in Abbotsford. The event is part of the Cascades annual participation in the “Shoot for the Cure,” an initiative led by the CIS women’s basketball coaching association. The project started in 2007 and has raised close to $512,000 from the 44 member schools that participate in women’s basketball. The Cascades, nationally ranked second in the CIS Top 10 poll, will also host their fifth annual ‘Shoot for the Cure’ basketball game on Saturday, Jan. 26th against the UNBC Timberwolves at the Envision Athletic Centre. – STAFF REPORTER
