he buzz has been building all year for the 100-year anniversary celebration of the Gur Sikh Temple on South Fraser Way. To honour the anniversary, the Khalsa Diwan Society has organized an event each month leading up to the big celebration next weekend, Aug. 26 to 28. Over those three days, an estimated 10,000 to 15,000 people will descend on the oldest and longest-standing gurdwara in North America. Many cultural festivities are planned, including a Sikh parade to Rotary Stadium, family fun activities, free food for everyone at the temple, and a commemorative

University of the Fraser Valley. “We’re hoping it’s not just the Sikh community. “Obviously we’re hosting it, but we’re trying to involve as much of

Briefly Woman survives crushing in compactor

A woman narrowly escaped with her life after waking up in an operating trash compactor in Abbotsford Wednesday morning. The 30-year-old woman suffered only some scrapes after coming to in the running compactor after climbing into the container and falling asleep the night before, said Abbotsford Police Sgt. Casey Vinet. Abbotsford Fire Rescue and police were called out to the site 31970 South Fraser Way next to Value Village at 9:30 a.m. after a woman was heard yelling from inside the garbage container. The victim told police she had clambered into the large metal bin to retrieve a phone, but had gone to asleep instead. Video from the cameras of surrounding businesses confirmed the woman climbed into the dumpster around 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday. Firefighters searched the garbage container to ensure no other individuals were trapped inside –ROCHELLE BAKER/TIMES

Pink clad participants in the Weekend to End Women’s Cancers (above & below) walked 60 km and raised a total of $2 million.

60km to drop Fred dead Her mother’s cancer, plus her own battle, inspires $13K march

MARELLE REID For the Times

W

hen Abbotsford’s Heidi Kerr was diagnosed with breast cancer last December she was paired up with another survivor who has been sending her encouraging e-mails during her treatment. In one, the woman told Kerr she had named her cancer Fred, and reminded her that, “Fred is dead.” With this powerful mantra in mind, Kerr signed up to participate in the Weekend to End Women’s Cancers in Vancouver Aug. 13 and 14, and called her team Drop Dead Fred. It’s a fitting name for a four-member team that raised $13,000 in less than two months. Kerr and her husband, daughter, and a family friend walked 60 km over the course of the two days in Vancouver, starting at the University of British Columbia. Almost 1,000 people turned out for

the walk, which raised just over $2 million for the BC Cancer Foundation – a significant step forwards in cancer research, noted Doug Nelson, BC Cancer Foundation President and CEO. “Before we started the weekend event in 2004, we were only able to raise about $200,000 a year for breast cancer research, but since then we’ve provided well over $20 million and seen some real breakthroughs in terms of early diagnosis, treatment and survivorship care for women who have been diagnosed with breast and other women’s cancers,” he said. Despite still being in treatment, Kerr said it was important to her to participate. “It was something we had to do,” she said of her and her husband’s

commitment to the cause. “I needed to pay it forward.” In 2009, Kerr walked in honour of her mother, who died of breast cancer several years ago. Kerr had signed up to participate again this year, and shortly after found out she, too, would have to face the battle against breast cancer. She said the treatment she received in Surrey and Abbotsford was phenomenal. This spring, she and her husband hosted two fundraiser barbecue nights, gathered pledges from family and friends, and did a lot of walking to train for the big weekend event. Knowing she has made a real difference in helping to find a cure, Kerr said she feels hopeful about the future for the next generation of women. “Maybe my daughters and my granddaughters won’t have to have breast cancer in their life,” she said. One piece of advice Kerr said she would like to give to all women is to get a mammogram if they are eligible. “That’s how I found my breast cancer,” she said. “And it’s worth getting it every year. People need to be aware that it’s there for you, and it’s a service that you need to get.”

o charges have been laid against Mission Coun. Jenny Stevens who is getting her computer back following a breach of trust investigation by the RCMP. Stevens read out a statement at the District of Mission council meeting on Monday stating several Crown Counsels have reviewed RCMP documentation and have advised that no further action will be taken. In addition to Stevens’ computer, officers from Mission, Chilliwack and Surrey also confiscated three computers belonging to retired councillor Ron Taylor. The seizures were part of a Mission RCMP investigation into an alleged leak from council regarding the district’s controversial substance control bylaw - better known as the marijuana grow op bylaw, according to Taylor. The RCMP has not issued any statements as to why the computers were seized. Stevens commended the RCMP for their consideration during the investigation, and said she was satisfied with the result. “The outcome is what I hoped for. My intention is to put it behind me.” The bylaw in question, which Taylor and Stevens have both denounced, allows Mission’s Public Safety Inspection Team to search people’s homes for grow ops if they are using more than 93 kwh of electricity per day. Residents have been charged $5,200 inspection fee, even if no marijuana, or signs of a grow operation are found. Some Mission residents have begun a class-action lawsuit, backed by the B.C. Civil Liberties Association, against the district in B.C. Supreme Court. In June, the district issued an apology when it announced it had mistakenly labelled more than a dozen locations as controlled substance properties and placed a moratorium on the bylaw.

Thousands expected for Lourdes pilgrimage ROCHELLE BAKER Rbaker@abbotsfordtimes.com

T

housands of the faithful will be making their way to Mission’s Fraser River Heritage Park on Saturday for the annual Our Lady of Lourdes pilgrimage. Jack Ethier, the pilgrimage coordinator, says up to 5,000 people from all over the Lower Mainland and even as far as Alberta will come to honour the assumption of Mary, the mother of Jesus. The event, which takes place yearly on the third Saturday of August, is the largest Roman Catholic pilgrimage in the province, said Ethier. This year the pilgrimage will also celebrate the 150th anniversary of Father Leon Fouquet, an Oblate priest who abandoned his scholarly life in France to come to the wilds of British Columbia. In addition to choosing Mission City as the site for St. Mary’s Mission in 1861, he founded St. Peter’s in New Westminster, St. Paul’s in North Vancouver and St. Eugene’s Mission in Cranbrook. Ethier said those participating in the pilgrimage often make a day of it arriving as early as 9 a.m.

Mission’s Lady of Lourdes pilgrimage draws thousands.

The concession stands providing food and drink will be open by 10 a.m. In a gesture symbolic of the challenges faced by Fouquet, Father John Tritschler, parish priest in Agassiz, will arrive at the waterfront by canoe at noon. This year Ukrainian Catholics have been invited to preside over the divine mass scheduled for 1 p.m.

“Instead of a Roman Catholic mass it will be a Byzantine rite. I think it’s going to be very special . . . they have such symbolism and ritual that is so rich,” said Ethier. Following mass, thousands of praying worshippers will accompany a statue of Mary and wind their way up the park’s hill to the Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto built in 1892. Over time, the grotto acted as a beacon for travellers, settlers and traders, as the structure was – and still is today – visible from the Fraser River. After its construction, the monument fell into disrepair and was rebuilt a number of times, said Ethier. The newest incarnation of the grotto, which was opened in 1997, sits on the crest of Heritage Park hill and the former site of St. Mary’s Mission. Following ceremonies at the grotto, worshippers will have the opportunity to say personal prayers before gathering with family, friends and participants for a meal and celebration in the park below, said Ethier. The pilgrimage is a spiritual and inspiring event and everyone is welcome to attend regardless of their faith, he added. It is an opportunity to see the Catholic faith in action, and participation by the Ukrainian Catholics will result in new sights and sounds at this year’s pilgrimage.

City manager Frank Pizzuto said the survey was commission by the city to get a sense of Abbotsford residents’ sentiments and thoughts around the water project. The survey is not political other than to determine how citizens are thinking about the Stave Lake proposal, said Pizzuto. “It is to determine what people’s thinking is [about the project] and analyze what kind of education campaign we need to undertake so residents will make informed decisions,” he said. The final decision about the P3 project lies in the hands of voters who will vote on the plan during a public referendum in the upcoming municipal elections in November. The city has commissioned the services of Angus Reid to direct the survey and analyze the results, said Pizzuto. The city did not establish what questions would be on the survey. “[Angus Reid] is who gives us advice about the questions and why they are relevant, and which will give an understanding of what residents sentiments are,” he said. The city expects to have results from the polling by late August or early September.

ARTHRITIS Pain free in 2 weeks!

This is what happened to me personally. After suffering for years I desperately tried everything, drugs, natural products, physiotherapy, acupuncture, magnets and nothing was of any real help. Finally I had relief in 2 weeks by taking shark cartilage that was specially processed to preserve the natural active ingredients. This is the kind we are now promoting. I realized then that there are over 50 million men and women that are battling the same illness and getting treatments that are not working well, otherwise we would not have this ongoing huge health problem. In the last 10 years we have helped tens of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. This is a by-product of the food industry. No sharks are caught because of their bones/cartilage. Don’t let anybody confuse you. Nick A. Jerch, President

$284-million water source and treatment centre at Stave Lake for 2016, and has applied for federal funding from Public Private Partnerships Canada (PPP Canada) for up to 25 per cent of the cost. The city is proceeding with the public private partnership plan independently after its partner, the District of Mission, voted not to support it. Members of the group Wa t e r Wa t c h M i s s i o n Abbotsford are critical of the survey, suggesting it has a pro-P3 slant. The group also raised concerns regarding a number of the questions being asked, some of which reportedly involve respondents being asked whom they voted for in the last provincial and federal elections.

The attack – which involved a hail of bullets aimed at a Porsche Cayenne parked outside a busy Kelowna hotel – was reckless in nature and could have killed people nearby. Foolhardy and brazen, the shooting had all the earmarks of being the act of a loosely organized mid-level street gang, Plecas said. The Hells Angels, a hierarchical, disciplined criminal organization generally doesn’t operate in a manner that would attract such public attention. Despite the risk of a revenge attack, the resurgence of a gang war is likely not in the cards, as police have made significant arrests and inroads, particularly against the Red Scorpions and UN gang, in the last couple of years, he said. “Police have a much greater capability to

keep on top of gang violence,” he said. “The public hears of [attacks] but they don’t hear about all the things police are heading off at the pass and doing to prevent a hit.” Kelowna RCMP is working with police agencies across the province to catch suspects and head off retaliatory attacks, said Supt. Bill McKinnon. Abbotsford Police Sgt. Casey Vinet said that although there is heightened awareness on the part of the APD, there is nothing to indicate a pending outbreak of violence here. “We are working with our partner agencies to ensure we have the latest information around gang violence,” said Vinet. “It would be wrong to think violence couldn’t occur here but we don’t have any specific information to suggest something similar could happen in Abbotsford.”

Wi-Fi makes unhappy campers F

lush toilets and hot showers are extra amenities I really appreciate when I head out for a weekend of camping, but even those aren’t a must. Now there’s talk of providing Wi-Fi. Please? Much of my life has become dependent on the Internet: accessing, gleaning, and sharing news, then repackaging it and turning it into something useful and/or enjoyable for readers to consume – more and more of them turning to an online version of the paper to get their local news fix and enjoy community tidbits. But give your head a shake, people! Stop pushing for Wi-Fi at campgrounds around B.C. The entire premise of going camping is to escape from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives. Who really needs to be so plugged in that they can’t afford to disconnect for a few days of peace, tranquility, and freedom from cyberspace. Admittedly, I might be more receptive to the concept of wireless access if I pull into the more urban sites at Derby Reach or Brae Island in Fort Langley, which because of the proximity to civilization, probably already offer such services. But when I escape into the wilderness and am lounging in my campsite at more remote locations such as Golden Ears or Rolley Lake Provincial Parks, I want to be hearing the crackling of the campfire and the perking of the camp stove coffee, not

be our guest the dings and beeps confirming the latest downloads, uploads, emails, Tweets, and (Facebook) pokes. Sure, I understand the need for telephone access in case of emergencies when camping. But a pay phone has sufficed for years. I don’t ever want to be awakened again to a Twisted Sister We’re Not Gonna Take It ring tone, just because the guy two campsites away forgot to set his cellphone to vibrate as a courtesy to others anxious to enjoy the outdoors without the intrusion of electronic leashes. By now, it’s obvious electronics and camping don’t go together in my books. I’d rather relax with a good book (and I’m not talking a Kindle variety), or a battery-operated transistor radio playing some soft tunes (maybe even an iPod) is the extent of it for me. For that reason, I am elated to hear that B.C. parks – for the most part – will remain off the grid when it comes to offering wireless Internet access around the campfire. A recent B.C. Parks satisfaction survey showed strong opposition to going wireless in the wilderness. And at

least for now, the park operators seem game to comply. Yippee! Only a quarter of those surveyed were in favour of Wi-Fi at campgrounds; most share my views and are anxious to leave the city and all its “conveniences” (at least, most) behind. An even stronger opposing voice was heard from users at the nearby Golden Ears Provincial Park last year. Out of the 67 people canvassed, a resounding 49 per cent went as far as to say wireless Internet was “unacceptable or undesirable.” But be forewarned, it’s probably not too far off. Here comes one of those generational rants: I can’t attend a family dinner without half the clan at the table phoning, texting, or Tweeting someone during the meal. So, I know the day is fast approaching when these technological devices rule our world completely – and campgrounds will offer little refuge. For sure, such a move would make me an “unhappy camper,” figuratively and literally. But wait . . . maybe I should rethink this. If I voted in favour of such a move, would that mean I could disappear into the backwoods for days on end and pretend I’m working by sending out a few e-mails every once in a while? Hmm? While that sounds somewhat tantalizing, it’s not for me. ■ Roxanne Hooper is the assistant editor of the Langley Advance.

or a while there, it was looking as if the RCMP and IHIT had everything in hand. In 2009 there were so many violent incidents they began to blur together. Murders rocked Abbotsford and Langley, along with virtually every other community in the Lower Mainland. Gangsters, from the UN Gang, the Red Scorpions, the Independent Soldiers, all seemed determined to wipe their rivals off the face of the planet. Eventually, the violence slowed, and by 2010, things had definitely calmed down. The B.C. murder rate dropped by 31 per cent in a single year, and the overall Canadian murder rate hit its lowest level in almost half a century. Two of the three Abbotsford Bacon brothers, Jamie and Jarrod, are in jail awaiting trial for charges linked to the Surrey Six murders and drug trafficking. The eldest Bacon, Jonathan, was headed back to trial in the fall for drugs and weapons charges. Of the several Langley murders from 2009, several suspects are awaiting trial, one man has been convicted and given a life sentence, and two more are wanted and on the run. It looked like the good guys were on a winning streak. Then this week, gunfire erupted on a Kelowna street. Jonathan Bacon, who survived a 2006 shooting, was fatally gunned down by masked men wielding assault rifles. Wounded was a member of the Hells Angels White Rock chapter – which is actually headquartered in Langley. The gang wars in B.C. are not over yet. Now we have to wait, with our teeth clenched, for the possible retaliation. If the Red Scorpions and the Angels do try to take revenge, it could mean more bullets flying and bodies falling. And every time that happens, it means more chances for innocent bystanders to be hurt or killed. The police always ask, when investigating such crimes, for people to come forward with information. It’s not just to put away a crook who killed another crook. It’s to help keep people safe. Who wants to live in a world where we have to worry about gunfire at the grocery store, the mall, or the movies? ■ To comment on this editorial, e-mail us at letters@abbotsfordtimes.com.

Proactive, positive people power MissionFest Last Saturday, we closed off First Avenue and threw a party. Everyone was invited to the inaugural MissionFest, a celebration of our downtown community, and it was a wonderful experience for everyone. I would like to thank all those who came down to take part in the many activities and to meet up with friends and neighbours. It reminded all of us that we have a very special community full of some truly fantastic people and places! What started as an inkling of an idea some months ago exploded in a celebration of our downtown community! It just could not have been possible without some great people from the downtown neighbourhood. These people believed in the idea, pitched in and made it all possible. I would like to thank the Downtown Business Association and our gang of organizing volunteers - Dr. Lyndon Balisky; Brian of the Mission City Pawn Shop; Roger and Janet Chambers; Allison of the Chamber of Commerce; Doug from the Dewdney Pub; Margot and Leana of The Pantry - Natural Foods; Kathleen Mckillop; Richard Murphy; Paul of Lorna’s Cafe; Sandra Papageorgiou; Mark Sutherland; and all those who practised spontaneous volunteerism throughout the day! Thanks to absolutely everyone who came downtown. See you next year! Rhett Nicholson Mission

Garden not making any new friends Editor, the Times:

It’s not only for pricing residences that location is the key factor. Location is also important in developing civic attractions. Abbotsford’s International Friendship Garden is a classic example. This fine little park, dedicated on April 6, 2009, is a delightful place. Although the $1.2 million cost is much too high, the charming fountain, the feature waterfall, the bamboo-sided bridges, the giant granite stones, and the huge hosta plants are truly impressive. There may be no better place in Abbotsford for meditative introspection and silent reflection, especially about taxes. Unfortunately, few people visit that this beautiful garden. Here’s my experience: In recent months I visited the International Friendship Garden eight times. Not once did I see anyone else in the actual garden except on one occasion when my wife accompanied me. She is the only other person I have ever met in this firstrate tourist attraction! I don’t know which bureaucrats, politicians, or consultants, selected the location but the choice was, in my opinion, a colossal blunder. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not opposed to Abbotsford having a fine International Friendship Garden provided it is wisely located. The well-designed main entrance faces George Ferguson Way where traffic cannot stop. Nor is there

convenient parking nearby. The closest parking at the adjacent library lot is mostly reserved for library staff. Other library parking areas are often largely filled by library patrons. The mostly unused main garden entrance should last a long time.! What should have been done? About $200,000 should have been spent on a first-rate rose garden, water feature, rock display, etc. south of the perimeter pathway at Mill Lake. There many thousands would enjoy it. And it should have no high, expensive wall, a psychological barrier dissuading happy taxpayers from entering. Recently I read that the MSA Museum Society is proposing the creation of a discovery centre. If that project should be approved, I sincerely hope that the location will be determined by knowledgeable members of the Museum Society. Perhaps the relevant bureaucrats, politicians and consultants will be preoccupied finding more parking near the Abbotsford Sports and Entertainment Centre. John H. Redekop Abbotsford

Nothing green about power producers Editor, the Times:

It seems I really struck a nerve with BC Citizens For Green Energy (BCCGE).

That title really is an oxymoron as there’s nothing at all ‘green’ about how the Independent Power Producers (IPP’s) produce power, apart from maybe wind dependent wind power. I thank them for the information on earlier IPP projects especially the NDP reference. What one has to consider about an NDP government is that there is no guarantee that their advisers are not right wing Conservative/ Liberal in their thinking, some of which may have contributed to the Fast Ferry fiasco. And how they can say that I am 100 per cent wrong when it comes to the recent wave of IPP’s and the mass exodus of bureaucrats, including Ex attorney general Geoff Plant, to either help start them up or join their employ? This is public record! I don’t have to try to prove or accuse anyone of collusion or conspiracy all I need to do is show the following facts and the voting public can judge for themselves. In 2002 BC Premier Gordon Campbell’s Green Power Initiative instructed BC Hydro to buy all future power from the newly created IPP’s. As of Sept. 1, 2010 there were 627 new license applications for IPP’s; please view ‘Private Power Watch’ on a google search. As I’ve said before BCCGE is a BC Liberal Ra Ra group going out of their way to support

Was Bush even all that bad? Editor, the Times:

Cornelius Bergen shoots himself right in the foot when he imagines that Prime Minister Harper was “an admirer’ of former president [George] Bush. Bergen

neglects to cite any exact quotation from the prime minister : he gives neither date nor place for the prime minister’s alleged admiration. What accounts for the irrational, instinctive hatred of president Bush? He was twice democratically elected president. He had much more political experience than Barack Obama, who spent only two years as the junior senator from Illinois after being just a neighbourhood organizer. Greg Lanning Abbotsford

What is your basic nature? F

our men are seen walking solemnly down a gravel road, accompanied by armed soldiers, while many spectators look on. Minutes later, the men and soldiers arrive at a clearing near the base of a hill where four posts have been placed in the ground. Each man is directed to stand in front of an assigned post and they slowly but willingly take their positions. One man carefully places his hat on the ground behind him. The men are asked to speak and each one says a few words although it is unclear what is being expressed because the recording lacks a soundtrack. After a moment, a line of solders – which we can now see – raise their rifles and fire at the same time: the four crumple to the

SIMON GIBSON

Faith that matters ground. A supervising officer promptly steps forward and uses a revolver to fire a single shot into the heads of each body. This upsetting film clip had come to my attention before I knew the reason for the execution: I initially had considerable sympathy for these men and the brutality of their deaths. I was also intrigued by their apparent willingness to accept death which was demonstrated by their submissive behaviour. (One report suggested at least one of the four had requested a more elaborate

firing squad composed of higher-ranking soldiers – this request was rejected.) I’ve since learned these men – including Nazi sympathizer Ion Antonescu – were convicted of war crimes in a court similar to the Nuremberg Trials, used in Germany following the Second World War. They were part of the Holocaust and presided over the deaths of many innocent civilians, mostly Jews. Although they would have expected to die under more peaceful circumstances, they also revealed an awareness of their own transgressions and the evil they had perpetrated. Or to put it simply, they accepted execution because they knew they were guilty. None of us, of course, see FAITH, page A14

DRUNK DRIVING CONTINUES

BC’s summer counterattack campaign launched with the reminder that alcohol related crashes, although easily preventable, remain “one of the No. 1 criminal causes of death in Canada,” and the caution to choose a designated driver well before heading out for events that include alcohol consumption.

THE ROAD RULES

ers Against Drunk Driving—while acknowledging the ‘enormous progress,’ caution that the remaining ‘work to be done’ may lead, ultimately, to zero tolerance.

Of course some who consider themselves moderate social drinkers and not a threat when they drink and Cedric Hughes Barrister & Solicitor drive are less than sanguine about the changes. Many may have found this patronizing.

Hit the road packing protection. Whether it’s soaking up the last days of summer on a road trip, or a quick jaunt across the border for groceries or gas, make sure your car insurance is ready for the trip too. Here are a couple of things you can do to be sure: Understand your coverage limits and deductibles. Know what coverages and deductibles you carry for your vehicle. Refer to your insurance documents and ensure you have the following coverages:

vehicle owners purchase a minimum of $3,000,000. You may wish to increase this before you leave. Proof of Insurance - Keeping your documents with you. Having adequate car insurance can’t help unless you keep your documents with you. When crossing the border, you may be asked to produce your car registration to show proof of ownership. It’s also helpful to have on hand, your documents and a 24-hour emergency claim telephone number from your insurance company should you be involved in an accident.

Keeping safe. Your safety is first priority. Ensure that your travel route is planned with the help of a good map or global positioning device and drive to the posted speed limits. Remember to limit the use of your cell phone, even through blue tooth devices, unless it’s an emergency, as laws on cell phone usage vary in different provinces and states. Lastly, don’t forget to pack your travel insurance, even for a quick trip across the border, to avoid financial devastation if you fall sick or have an accident while you’re away.

No better time than the present to confess your need for God FAITH, from page A10 would even contemplate committing such heinous atrocities, none of us could imagine being responsible for the horrors of Nazism. Nonetheless, in a much smaller way, we are certainly aware of the darker side of our lives, the evil we are capable of doing. The Bible talks about this when it says, “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” It also says, “There is no one righteous, no not one.” This means we can do wonderful things, demonstrate charity, care for the unfortunate, but it is our basic nature that is flawed. We can never be perfect. Do you have a sense of your own disturbing nature? Are you sometimes shocked with the images and ideas that pass through your mind? Are there times when you long to be free of the anguish that comes from

being controlled by your desires? Do you have addictions that consume you and weaken your resolve, even your will to go on? There is hope! John 3:16 is perhaps the best-known verse in the Bible: “For God so loved the world that he gave his only son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.” Jesus, who was perfect, accepted death on a cross for you personally – to take away completely the penalty of the sin you deserve: and he rose from the dead. Today would be the perfect time to call on God through Christ and confess your need for him. Don’t wait: accepting Christ as your Saviour will be the most important decision you’ll ever make! ■ Simon Gibson attends church

in Abbotsford and writes Faith that Matters which appears monthly in the Abbotsford-Mission Times.

you direct the questions. I understand that not everyone knows why turbaned Sikhs wear different KEN colours and why women and HERAR children wear turbans. To tell On the you the truth, I didn’t know edge the correct answers, either. That’s why I called a friend to assist me. It’s good to ask and learn about our ethnic diversity. This is how we build bridges and inclusiveness. But don’t forget to show patience and respect and be genuine in your interest. If you can’t do this – don’t ask. People can often see the hate. I have a simpler solution – if you don’t like the ethnicity in our local community, consider relocating. We’re all at different stages in our understanding of diversity and that includes me. Discussion and dialogue are some of the best ways to overcome misunderstanding. Are you in between jobs or looking for that first job in Canada? Fast tracking your soft skills is an essential tool in landing that first job. The Employment Mentors and Skills Connect programs are presenting Nick Noorani, one of the ‘Top 25 Canadian Immigrants’ and former publisher of the Canadian Immigrant magazine. He will be presenting the “7 Success Secrets for Immigrants” on Sept. 8 from 9:30 a.m. to 12 noon in the Jasbir Saran Room, Abbotsford Community Services main office, 2420 Montrose Ave, Abbotsford.

Q&A

08185894

ecently, I had an interesting conversation with a friend who was curious about why Sikhs wear the various colours and different styles of turbans. Living in the Lower Mainland, many times in a day you will see turbaned Sikhs walking on the streets, in the malls or maybe at your workplace. This simply shows how far we have come as a nation in establishing our diversity throughout Canada. As Abbotsford prepares for the centennial celebrations of the Historic Sikh Temple on South Fraser Way from Aug 26-28, this unique anniversary demonstrates our roots and partnerships that have been built over the last century. Getting back to the conversation with this lady, she stopped me dead in my tracks with her questions about turbans. I have no issues with that. Where I draw the line is if an individual is being respectful in their questioning. Let’s just say, she was cutting a fine line at the very least. Furthermore, she went on to comment that she was surprised to see females and children wearing turbans. She asked, “Is this something new?” I replied, “no.” She didn’t sound very happy in her tone. I was left with the impression that she did not like the changing ethnic landscape of our local community. What I gathered from this short five-minute conversation as I read between the lines was that there are too many people with turbans in our community. She did not say it but her body language and tone certainly expressed this unfortunate message. The person assisting me in this conversation also felt the same way. Next time you ask a question about someone’s religion or culture, be respectful how

Back to School Remember to do your homework when back-to-school shopping

T

he summer is winding down and soon students will be returning to class. Chances are you’ve seen the back-to-school shopping ads on television and splashed across newspaper pages. Before you start your shopping, the Better Business Bureau has some back-to-school basics. “Whether shopping for new clothes, pens and pencils, or electronic items it’s important to be prepared and have a plan,” says Lynda Pasacreta, BBB President and CEO. “It will keep you on budget, save you money, and avoid getting stuck with an item you don’t want.”

of the merchant. Read the refund and return policy, have in writing any warranty or guarantee details, be familiar with delivery/shipping costs and time schedules, feel comfortable that the merchant is reliable and not the subject of consumer complaints, and be able to trust that any information you submit to complete the sale transaction (credit card number, etc.) will be treated with the proper care.

BBB has these tips to help you be a savvy back-to-school shopper: ■ Plan ahead. Set a realistic budget and stick to it. Make a list of the items you need to purchase to avoid buying on impulse. Be sure to check with your child’s school for a list of required supplies and recommended suppliers to avoid return trips. ■ Ask about returns and refunds. Shopping for new clothes, accessories, and electronics is one of the highlights of going back to school. Ask the store about their return policy and always keep the receipts. In B.C., stores are not legally required to exchange an item or give a refund.

– TIMES FILE

Before starting back-to-school shopping the BBB recommends having a budget and list in hand to avoid impulse buys.

If your child is in the market for a computer, BBB recommends doing your research:

■ Ask about restocking fees. Some merchants charge a restocking or “open box” fee—sometimes as high as 20 per cent of the original cost—for returns of electronics products or large-ticket items. Ask if that is the policy so that you know before you buy.

■ Decide what your child’s needs will be. What is the computer going to be used for? word processing, graphic/web design, gaming?

■ Shop smart online. Find out the physical location and phone number

■ Determine what type of hardware and software that will be required.

REGISTER NOW classes start Sept 12

In a fun, friendly and supportive environment When you pick up your child from our facility, their snack, homework and lessons are all completed. You get to head home and enjoy supper and quality time together!

■ Know the true cost of what you are purchasing. You might be moving out for the first time and buying new furniture. If you are buying an item on credit, make sure you are aware of not only the interest rate being charged, but any additional fees and costs associated with purchasing on credit. Also read the fine print on your obligations regarding interest payments and any penalties for late payments.

Back to School Give up your lunch money with a real brown bag special MARELLE REID For the Times

Lunch Money Week runs Monday, Aug. 22 to Saturday, Aug. 27, but there’s no deadline for donating. Businesses can sign up online and download posters as well as more information to spread the word at the office. To make it efficient and easy for local businesses to fundraise, the food bank has a website link for the campaign, where donations can be made online. Specially marked brown paper bags are available at the food bank, at 33914 Essendene Ave., but Prang says he will personally deliver bags to any businesses willing to get involved. Last year, the campaign drew in $2,000 to support school breakfast programs, supplemental school supplies and sports camps for underprivileged kids. This year, the food bank wants to raise the bar with a goal of $20,000, and get 75 businesses involved. “To have businesses coming on board and sharing their resources, whether personal or corporate, tells people they’re not alone,” said Prang. “We get tons of thankyou letters. We have to forward those to the community, because without the community, there’d be a lot of people hungry and scared. Fear is actually probably the greatest thing that people are overcoming.”

P

ut your money where your mouth is. Or, rather, where your lunch is. That’s the latest challenge from the Abbotsford Food Bank, which is encouraging people to drop cash or cheques into specially marked brown paper bags for the fourth annual Lunch Money Week. And as kids get ready to return to school, there’s no better time to consider our community’s less fortunate families. The goal is, instead of going out for lunch, people bring a bagged lunch to work and donate what they would have spent at a restaurant to the food bank. Alternatively, people might match what they spend on eating out in donations for the campaign. Lunch Money Week is a creative way for the food bank to raise funds for important community programs, says program developer Cliff Prang. To get creative, local companies might hold a barbecue or potluck at the office, a picnic at the park, or whatever else they can come up with to rally employees to the cause. “We’re saying this is a fun way for companies – small to large businesses – to fundraise,” said Prang, noting some employees Children make up nearly half of might want to simply donate coffee money, food bank clients and will benwhile other brave souls could even go as far as giving up lunch altogether and do a mid- efit greatly from Lunch Money Week donations. day fast.

Back to School ICBC’s top 5 tips for teen drivers No. 1 – Set the right example: Driving lessons start much earlier than you may realize – your children will observe your actions and attitude from a very young age. No. 2 – Get in the experts: It’s certainly a good idea to give your teen as much driving experience as possible, so consider also giving them the opportunity to take some lessons with a professional driving instructor. No. 3 – Remember the restrictions: As a parent, you should know the restrictions of the Graduated Licensing Program and make sure that your teen sticks to them. No. 4 – Put it in writing: You may want to consider creating a family contract and set of house rules that are in line with the GLP restrictions. No. 5 – Gearing up: The type of car your teen learns to drive on can make a big difference. It’s best to learn how to drive on a vehicle that’s a manageable size and has good visibility.

“It’s more of a problem solving type of thinking” COOL, from page A17 said Pearce. “We’re moving from the old way into a new way of learning and teaching; it’s really informing both the students and instructor on what the students are learning.” Mission Secondary School also used virtual classroom and video-conferencing technology to teach a Calculus 12 course that was open to any Grade 12 student in the district. Thirteen students physically attended the course, while the remaining 17 were video-conferenced in from their respective schools. The students used Smart Boards and were able to interact with the teacher directly. The program has been so successful – the average class mark is in the 80+ per cent range – that four more courses will be offered this coming year. Over at Heritage Park Secondary, vice principal Wade Peary and teacher Al LaFontaine are shaking things up with their teaching with toys approach. From magic tricks to balls that light up, the toys are an integral part of getting students tuned in to the lesson. Engaging students physically while teaching a concept can increase their overall memory retention, and Peary and LaFontaine believe if they initiate the imagination, the brain will be warmed up to receive academic lessons.

Fast Facts: • SD #34 has 46 schools, including: • 30 elementary schools • 7 middle schools • 1 combined middle school • 7 secondary schools • 1 virtual school • 1 aboriginal education centre • 1 annual summer school *************

– SUBMITTED/TIMES

Heritage Park Secondary teacher Al LaFontaine teaches with a giant sphere to get the students’ attention. We want to create thinkers in the school system, he said. “It’s more of a problem-solving type of thinking, which is what you’re trying to do – to create thinkers in the school system, not knowers,” said LaFontaine. “Nobody can know everything, but what you have to know is how to think.” The pair has travelled around B.C. and the U.S. making presentations to

educators on teaching with toys. “It’s all about creativity and imagination,” said LaFontaine. ◗ For more information on techniques or toys used in Mission classrooms check out the British Columbia Association of Student Activity Advisors at www.bcasaa.bc.ca.

The District has approximately 18,500 students, and is one of Abbotsford’s largest employers, with 2,000 full and parttime teaching and support staff, along with hundreds of teachers-on-call and casual workers.

Mobile Medical Unit unveiled at YXX

Designed to act as a mini-hospital

high-tech Mobile Medical Unit that acts as a mini-hospital to provide services for B.C. families was unveiled by Health Minister Michael de Jong at the Abbotsford International Airshow last Thursday. The Mobile Medical Unit (MMU) is unique to Western Canada and is one of the major medical legacies from the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games. The Ministry of Health purchased the unit fromVANOC after the Games for $5 million in order to improve emergency service delivery across the province.

It is also able to replace lost ambulatory or emergency room service capacity, such as in the case of an emergency department closure. The unit is self-sustainable and contains its own power, oxygen and waste systems. The unit can be connected to a hospital’s shore power, city water and waste systems, allowing medical staff to be self-sufficient for up to three days.

Cutbacks (the good kind) A

daily walkabout in the garden is one of the most relaxing habits a person can get into – it’s also incredibly useful if one takes a pair of pruners to do deadheading along the way. Many perennials will bloom again if the old flowers are cut off as soon as they begin withering. These include lupins, valerian, verbena bonariensis, cranesbills, campanulas and geraniums. Re-blooming is the response that almost all the daisy-type flowers make to deadheading. This includes zinnias, helenium, echinacea (Coneflowers) and Shasta daisies. Most should be cut back to the next lower bud. Or if that isn’t visible, cut to just above the next lower leaf. Once a stem’s main flower is gone, the energy it would have used becomes available to dormant buds lower on the stem so they quickly develop and bloom. That’s why some detail-oriented gardeners prune out the first bloom on plants such as phlox or snapdragons. They feel that this triggers dormant buds lower down so that the side-shoots bloom earlier and in larger quantities than they otherwise would. Annuals need frequent deadheading otherwise they stop blooming as soon as they begin forming seed. Sweet peas, for instance are notorious for ceasing to bloom unless picked every day or two. Other plants that are grown more for foliage than flowers are often deadheaded to liberate more energy for the development of healthy, luxuriant leaves. This applies especially to some of the artemesias and to santolinas. But some of the taller cranesbills also get

very leggy and gangly after flowering and really benefit by flower-heads and foliage being sheared close to the ANNE ground so that a mound of MARRISON vibrant, fresh leaves develGreen ops. thumb This all-over haircut also works well with Catmint (nepeta), Ladies Mantle (alchemilla) and other plants that grow low and/or produce zillions of flowers that would be too fiddly to deadhead. Flowers that open over a long period within clusters invite difficult decisions. Lychnis coronaria and astrantia both have ripe seedpods in their flower clusters while later-opening flowers in the same cluster are still blooming. Both self-sow prodigiously. Lychnis pulls up easily but astrantia has a taproot. Spires are similar. Foxgloves produce almost-ripe seedpods at the base of the flower stalk while more blooms continue to open at the top. Efficient gardeners usually cut sooner rather than later. There are a lot of different benefits to deadheading. Preventing plants from forming seed can save you a lot of work next spring – and some beautiful, valuable species have tap-rooted seedlings as numerous as dandelions and just as diabolical to remove. Hellebores and bronze-leaf fennel are two where gardeners need to do self-protective dead-heading. The hellebore seedheads especially can be quite beautiful – but as soon as the green begins to fade it’s time to decapitate them.

Let the good times roll Mission’s Rockin River Fest is a show stopper ROCHELLE BAKER Abbotsford Times

M

Briefly

ission’s Rockin River Music Festival organizer Kenny Hess is wrung out, but in a good way. Hess, an entertainer who also performed at the festival along the Fraser, said the event had its best year ever. “I’m beat tired, but it’s good beat tired. We had a wonderful, wonderful festival,” he said. “It was our third year, and by far the best year so far.” The country music extravaganza ran Friday and Saturday with a total of 10,000 people moving through the gates. That’s a 40 per cent jump from the 6,000 people who attended last year, said Hess. “We got enough people that [we] won’t have to dig into our own pocket,” he said. “We also got enough people that we now know the show will grow exponentially.” Rockin River’s success is based on the combination of great talent and a great location along the Fraser and within range of Metro Vancouver, said Hess. The festival hosted outstanding country acts such as Travis Tritt, Julian Austin and Lonestar. This year camping was offered at the festival site, and while it still needs some fine-tuning, it’s something people were enthusiastic about. Next year’s festival is in the works, and Hess plans to make it bigger and better than ever. He said he has been in contact with Reba McEntire, Tim McGraw and Toby Keith as potential headliners for next year. Not all three can come at once, and there is nothing official, but Hess has high hopes. However, he stressed that although Rockin River’s potential for growth is huge, he wants ensure it doesn’t sacrifice its small-town charm. “We’re kicking it up notch in 2012 to make it bigger and better,” he said. “But we don’t want to lose the innocence and beauty you have with music festivals.” “We want to maintain that church revival feel . . . mind you it’s a church revival with beer.”

The Envision Twilight Concert Series presents Bijou du Bayou at Fraser River Heritage Park in Mission on Friday, Aug. 19 from 7 p.m. to 8 pm. This Vancouver Island Cajun band brings high-energy music combining Cajun, Zydeco, Swing, Calypso, and a few other flavours to create a sound that would make the Amish want to do the Bugaloo. From fast-paced infectious (and danceable) tunes to a slow lovers’ waltz, the band’s sound can be described as Barenaked Ladies colliding with Buckwheat Zydeco. Jeff Weaver of CBC Victoria said, “Hard to believe these fellows didn’t grow up sucking crayfish on the shores of Lake Ponchartrain. Their performances are drenched in the good humour and joie de vivre that the music is famous for.” The Art in the Park program features Gina Esche’s natural way to body wellness and Karla Turner’s specialty blended leaf teas. Laughing Bird performs on Wednesday, Aug. 24 from 7 p.m. to 8 pm.

Entertainers, songwriters and recording artists, Laughing Bird – Tupelo Kenyon and Janey Wing Kenyon – are a contemporary folk-rock duo that has been sharing their music with audiences across the U.S. and elsewhere since the mid-1970s. The Kenyons are acoustic-based multi-instrumentalists who excel at upbeat, positive, original songs. Their music spans many genres including progressive folk, light rock, new country, new age, meditative, novelty, ballads and love songs. The Art in the Park program features the art of Pam Ellis, Betty Sandmark’s beaded jewelry, and Salt Lane Studio’s craft workshop. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and join us at the park. The Log Cabin Café and the Blackberry Kitchen are open. Admission is free but donations are encouraged. For more information call 604-826-0277.

Setting water on fire Local paddler grabs gold for Canada

“I really enjoyed the intensity and the expectations. I learned so much every time, and I came back feeling fulfilled. I just wanted more,” she said. “I just had to fill that need of wanting more.” Years of training paid off when she made the Canadian senior women’s team last spring, and in July she joined her teammates from across the country in Halifax for a brief training session before heading to Tampa. “We didn’t realize how strong we were. We had nothing to compare it to,” said English. “Once we had our first race under our belt, we started realizing our potential and our strength and it just clicked and we worked as a tight unit.”

ost prison guards are not too interested in displaying a whole lot of bling. That too can be said of Rita English, who, when not walking the beat at Ferndale Institution in Mission, is out churning up the water with the Canadian senior women’s dragon boat team. English just returned from the 10th IDBF World Dragon Boat Racing Championships in Tampa, Fla. Aug. 3-8, where she brought home four gold medals and a bronze for Canada. “I didn’t know what to expect because it was my first [world competition],” said English, 45, a single mom who lives in Chilliwack. “Coming across the finish line was one thing but then standing on the podium and seeing the flag rise . . . that was the best,” said English. “I felt it on the podium when I saw the flag go up. They were singing O Canada, and that’s when my emotions would come out.” Under all that bravado, English admitted that she did, in fact, cry. The road to the worlds was a long time coming. It was about 10 years ago that the mother of two was strolling the corridors as a correctional officer at Kent Maximum Security Institution in Agassiz. That was also about the same year she picked up a dragon boat paddle for the first time. “I just needed to do my own thing, get away from the job and try something completely different,” she said. She hooked up with Sudden Impact Pad-

She’s setting her sights on the worlds in Hungary in 2013. The mother of Brock, 13, and Lindsay, 15, gives a lot of the credit to her family. “I really appreciated my kids’ support. It was really important and paramount. They were so well grounded and supportive, I couldn’t have done it without them.”

Swimmer shines Twelve-year-old Abbotsford swimmer, Robyn Nakano, travelled to Montreal July 27 to take part in the 2011 Canadian Age Group Swimming Championships. The Olympians Swim Club member joined 1,700 swimmers from 200 clubs across Canada. Robyn, swimming at this level for the first time, reached the finals in 50 metres, 100m and 200 fly. She placed seventh in 200 fly and ninth in 50 and 100 fly. Robyn broke club records in 50

fly with a time of 31.60 and 100 fly with a time of 1:10.84. Robyn also swam in the 50 and 100 backstroke, achieving 100 per cent best times in all her swims. “I am so proud of Robyn. She has trained so hard and to make finals in her very first national competition is just amazing,” said Abbotsford Olympians head coach Adrienne Goodey. “This meet was the largest age group meet in Canadian history so the competition was very strong indeed. This was a great end to a fantastic season for Robyn.” – STAFF REPORTER

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Beauty, romance and “sports luck” don’t end now, but they do fade in big eno ugh chunks to let work, health concerns and duties reassert their hold on your life – tackle these. A co-worker will attract you. Remember, start nothing new and important before Friday. Sunday’s deceptive. Talk, travel, casual friends fill Monday/Tuesday. Your home, security, property, children draw your attention Wednesday (barriers) and Thursday (success). This whole area intensifies now to Sept. 19 – don’t move into a new home before then. Romance, creativity lure and please you Friday/Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: A period of restriction ends Tuesday. The weeks ahead feature romance, sports, beauty, charming kids, creativity and self expression. You’ll be lucky – perhaps luckier than in the last 12 years! Yes, do take a chance. However, don’t start anything major before Friday, especially in monetary, domestic, property or romantic zones. If you’re single and looking, next week (Aug. 28/29) will bring a superb chance to start a new relationship. Wait until then. Deal with money Monday/Tuesday. Friends, travel irk Wednesday, please Thursday. Quiet satisfaction fills you Friday/Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: Tuesday starts a month of domestic, property, security concerns, gardening, nutrition and physical recuperation – a lucky smoothness aids these, especially if a legal, international, or seclusion factor is involved. E.g., buying property in another country, or suing over a lease, or seeking a vacation retreat. But don’t start anything big in these (or any) areas before Friday. (Aug. 28/29 will be a good time to pursue these domestic concerns and to end a bad link.) Rest Sunday. Your energy, charisma rise Monday/Tuesday. Thursday solves a sexual dilemma. Travel at week’s end.

Food Products

Cancer June 21-July 22: The weeks ahead bring a busy but not terribly important time. Communications, errands, travel, paperwork and casual acquaintances will fill your days. You’re ambitious, determined, social, and lucky – a wish could come true, especially about employment or health. (Still, don’t start anything big until Friday onward.) The money emphasis fades, but collect some Friday/Saturday. You finally get a green light for shopping. Sunday’s social. Retreat early, and rest through Tuesday. Your energy and charisma soar Wednesday (step lightly) and Thursday. Money’s lucky Friday/Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: You’ve been centre stage over the last month, but now turn your focus to money, earning it, paying, buying/selling, possessions, memory and sensual relationships. (To Sept. 18, avoid legal fights. Wednesday/Thursday might give you a definite clue about this.) Live up to your parental or career “role” Sunday. Popularity, social delights, entertainment, optimism and light romance visit Sunday night to Tuesday. Lie low, rest, contemplate Wednesday/Thursday. Your energy, charisma and effectiveness soar Friday/Saturday. In the eight years ahead, you’ll find “true” marriage. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness will surge upward Tuesday onward. Don’t start anything important before Friday – but after that, pursue big, important things. Ask favours, seek co-operation and aid, be brave, go after what you most deeply want, especially in sexual, intimate, lifestyle, financial and health zones – AFTER Wednesday. A wish comes true in these areas over the next four weeks. You’ll attract the opposite sex for four weeks. Live up to parenting or career roles Monday/Tuesday. Popularity, social joys arrive midweek. Retreat briefly Friday/Saturday.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Start nothing before Friday. Sunday contains mysteries – and asks you questions which have no answers. (The questions are false.) Gentle understanding, love, compassion, travel and intellectual themes come Monday/ Tuesday. Higher-ups treat you badly Wednesday, nicely Thursday, but with little result this day – well, that’s not entirely true. You might receive a big “quitting fee” or a great retirement or housing deal. Your hopes and social happiness rise Friday/ Saturday. But generally you face a quiet, secluded month ahead: rest, plan future actions, and deal with governments. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Start nothing before Friday. A month of happiness, popularity, optimism and light flirtation begins Tuesday (especially next week, Aug. 28/29). Relationships need care Sunday. Investments, sexual urges, secrets (and detective/ research work) lifestyle and serious health affairs – these are highlighted Monday/Tuesday. (In these, a “gamble” from the past could be a winner Tuesday!) Wisdom, gentle love, travel and learning approach you Wednesday (take care) and Thursday (good results). Your career, ambitions and community/ parent roles meet success Friday/Saturday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The month ahead features ambition, career and prestige, and relations with bosses, VIPs, authorities and parents. Luck will walk with you. Bosses will favour you. They’ll be willing to “alter” your power or your assets upward – though risk exists: will the alteration, over time, bless you or not? IF this, or a talk about it, etc., occurs this week before Friday (or did occur since Aug. 2) the outlook is bad; if after (to Sept. 13) good. E.g., you’re offered equity in the company, or you receive notification you’ll be placed in a new career vector. Happiness, late week!

604-850-9600

August 21 - 27, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Someone might reveal their attraction for you in the month ahead. If you’re already involved, love grows, and a wedding is possible. (It doesn’t have to happen now into late September, but the wheels start rolling.) Whether you’re married or single, far travel, religion, higher education, cultural events or legal affairs expand over the month ahead, and will strike a note that can thrum luckily for you right into next June. Whatever happens, don’t start anything before Friday. (If one of these “projects” – wedding, far travel, etc. – comes to you before Thursday, beware it. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Rest, recuperate Sunday. Your romantic antennae vibrate Sunday night into early Wednesday. Enjoy what you have, but don’t start anything, relationship nor project, before Friday. Delay and indecision would affect it, but worse, real ill could brew here, into Thursday. So wait until Friday/Saturday, when relationship excitement rises again. The whole month ahead features sexual urges, the need for intimacy, finances, investments, debts, secrets, lifestyle choices and health diagnosis. These will generally yield lucky, gratifying results – but not if they arise before Friday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: A month of drudgery ends; a month of excitement begins. Opportunities, new horizons,agreements,partnerships,negotiations, relocation – these await you, but don’t act on them (especially if they’re new) before Friday, or you could incur their flip side: opposition, enmity, obstacles and competition. (This wouldn’t be direct: first you’d incur bad luck, then frustration would make you belligerent instead of diplomatic: and the result’s obvious.) But that’s unlikely, as you’re treated with affection by others for four weeks! Keep at a minor task. Romance, Wednesday/Thursday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
