The woman, in a 2005 Buick Allure, exited the Bradner Road rest stop the wrong way, travelling eastbound in the westbound lanes around 10:45 a.m., said RCMP Sgt. Peter Thiessen. She crashed into a 2003 Mazda 3 hatchback driven by a 29-year-old man who was with his wife, 24, and their three-month-old son. The couple, from Chilliw a c k , s u f f e re d n o n - l i f e threatening injuries and fortunately their infant son was unharmed. “This tragic loss of life has impacted a family forever,” said Thiessen. “This is a time of year when families come together and celebrate the holidays but unfortunately a family now grieves the loss of a beloved family member. Fortunately there was not a greater loss of life.” There is no evidence alcohol was a factor in the crash, said Thiessen. RCMP has not yet released the name of the crash victim.

wo senior UN gang members were handed lengthy jail terms on Tuesday after pleading guilty to a cocaine conspiracy. Douglas Vanalstine, the co-founder of the gang, and senior gang member Daryl Johnson of Abbotsford entered their guilty pleas in July in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver. Last Tuesday, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Carol Ross sentenced Vanalstine, 52, to 10 years in jail for the offence. However, she reduced his sentence to 41 months in jail, after giving him credit for pre-sentence custody and time spent in segregation. The judge handed Johnson, 34, an eight-year jail term, reducing it to seven years, two months after giving him credit for pre-sentence custody. During sentencing submissions, Vanalstine’s lawyer had requested that his client receive three-to-one credit for the six months he spent in segregation at North Fraser Pre-Trial. Court heard that he was put into segregation for security reasons and that his cell was exceedingly dirty, there was flooding from a toilet in a nearby cell and human feces on the wall of his cell that he cleaned by using his own socks. Vanalstine also spent a total of 2 1/2 years in the general prison population, with his lawyer requesting that he receive two-for-one credit for that time spent awaiting trial. Johnson had five months’ pre-sentence custody, which

Christmas Bureau coordinator Kristine Ewald is hoping more toys come in this week, in time for Christmas for families in need. In his 13 years as director of the Abbotsford Food Bank, Dave Murray has never seen the shelves this empty. “We’re out of toys, and the selection is poor this year,” he said. Most needed are toys or gifts for kids ages 10-14 and older, and Murray is asking the community to “do what you can to help us.” Gift cards for teens are the best solution, he said. “A $20 gift card is gold.”

Alleged gang associate busted for third time in five-month span

bbotsford Police arrested an alleged gang associate for the third time within a five-month period on Wednesday night. Russell Jordan Mayhew, 26, is charged with possession for the purposes of trafficking and breach after officers arrested him in the underground parking lot of an apartment building in the 2200 block of McKenzie Road at 11:30 p.m. Cocaine and cash were seized after officers searched his suite, said Const. Ian MacDonald, adding the amounts of drugs seized suggest the suspect is working or coordinating a dial-a-dope

Vacuum-sealed cash a “tell-tale” sign of organized crime BORDER, from page A1 their 30s, said MacDonald. Abbotsford Police held the two men until they were handed over to the Canada Border Services Agency. “They couldn’t provide any documentation to prove they had legal status in Canada,” said MacDonald. T h e Bu r n a by m a n a n d woman have been released while an investigation takes place. Neither have any significant history with police, said MacDonald. “We will continue the investigation to determine if there

are any criminal charges that can be laid. The difficulty is proving ownership of the contents of the vehicle,” said MacDonald, adding investigators believe an illegal border crossing was likely planned or had already occurred when the van was stopped. The loaded weapon and the quantity of cash that was vacuum-sealed are “tell-tale signs of organized crime”, said MacDonald. “It’s too early to determine if we’re dealing with the movement of people and cash, or whether something else is involved like moving weapons or drugs.”

Date rape guard not welcome back

Matsqui prison coworkers don’t want convicted man back on the job CHERYL CHAN The Province

A

Matsqui Institution prison guard who was fired after being convicted of sexual assault wants his job back. Balkar Basra, found guilty of date-raping a 21-year-old student in 2004, is grieving his suspension and dismissal from the Correctional Service of Canada.

“There are jobs in this world - RCMP, Corrections - that have to be held to a – RIC ERNST/PNG/FOR THE TIMES

higher standard.”

A former prison guard who worked at Matsqui Institution in Abbotsford (above) was convicted of sexual assault is looking to get his job back.

“[Basra] is a registered sex offender seeking his job back as a corrections officer,” Christine Langill, counsel for the employer, told the adjudicator at a Public Service Labour Relations Board hearing in Abbotsford Wednesday. His return will pose a risk to himself and his colleagues, and damage public trust and the reputation of the federal agency, she said. Basra was originally suspended without pay after his bosses received word of the allegations against him in March 2006. He appealed the suspension to the board

and won on the grounds Corrections took less a day. too long to complete its internal review. He received his letter of termination June He was reinstated to Matsqui in Septem- 2009. ber 2007 with back pay and benefits plus Three employees testified at the hearing interest.

He was then convicted of sexual assault “There is a level of trust you have to have,” the next month and sentenced to two years said a training co-ordinator.

“I don’t know how I can have that trust with someone who has been convicted.” A corrections officer testified she is “flabbergasted” Basra’s return is even being discussed. “It would embarrass me to work for Corrections if that were the case,” she said. “There are jobs in this world - RCMP, Corrections - that have to be held to a higher standard.” The adjudicator also heard testimony Matsqui inmates dislike sexual offenders – so much so that the institution does not accept inmates with a history of sexual offences because they would get assaulted. The acting deputy warden at the time testified she heard reports of inmates inquiring about Basra’s identity in the days following media reports published about his return to work in 2007. During cross-examination, counsel for the union James Baugh confirmed no complaints were lodged against Basra during his reinstatement to work. According to risk assessment reports, management did not find it necessary to transfer Basra to another facility or take him out of active service, he noted. Baugh argued Basra should be reinstated to his position because he has served his time. “It is important to leave those avenues open to people who have served their time . . . so they can be productive members of society, Baugh said.” Counsel for the union is expected to call two employees as witnesses for Basra. Basra may take the stand. The hearing continues. – FOLLOW US ON TWITTER: @ABBBYTIMES

Bacon appealing his sentence COCAINE, from page A3 at two-for-one credit reduced his sentence to seven years, two months. Two-for-one credit for pre-sentence custody has been phased out in Canada, but the prosecution said that, in this case, they would not oppose it because the offence occurred before the law was changed. The two men met with a police agent, who cannot be identified due to a publication ban, on a number of occasions in 2009 to facilitate the purchase of 100 kilograms of cocaine. The pair provided a $100,000 down payment and took delivery of 100 kilograms of mostly fake cocaine. They were then arrest-

ed and charged. Va n a l s t i n e w a s described as the “directing mind” behind the high-level, drug-trafficking scheme. Johnson was the “right-hand man” and integrally involved in the conspiracy. As part of their plea agreement, a third gang member, Nicholas Wester, had his charges stayed. The same police agent, a convicted drug trafficker, was used in a reverse cocaine sting against Abbotsford gangster Jarrod Bacon, 29, and Wayne Scott, 56. Both men were convicted at trial. Bacon was sentenced to 12 years in jail but is appealing that sentence. Scott received a 3 1/2year jail term.

Expecting an increase in 2013 PERMITS, from page A4 cent to $1.3 million from $0.4 million during the same period. The seasonally adjusted value of residential permits fell 50 per cent to $2.7 million in October 2012, from September’s $5.4 million. “The outlook is for modest gains in the industrial and public sectors for the balance of 2012, but fewer total permits will likely be issued mainly because one large commercial project boosted the 2011 figure in Abbotsford,” said Sashaw. Total building permit values fell 40 per cent in the Lower MainlandSouthwest region to $473 million in October 2012, compared to

$784.9 million in September. “Abbotsford building permits seem to be languishing a bit compared to the rest of the Lower Mainland,” said Sashaw. “We’re anticipating permits will increase [in 2013], with more projects in the pipeline and greater consumer and investor confidence.”

Abbotsford Fire Rescue led a convoy of vehicles on Saturday that represented Abbotsford car dealers and Save-On-Foods stores involved in delivering eight tons of goods collected for the food bank as part of the sixth annual Fraser Valley Auto Mall food drive.

◗ With more than 700 members, VRCA is B.C.’s largest and most inclusive regional construction association, representing union and non-union, general and trade contracting companies, manufacturers, suppliers and other professionals throughout the Lower Mainland from Hope to Whistler.

All eight auto mall dealers chipped in with donations FOOD, from page A1 auxiliary teamed up to make this a giant success,” he said. “With all the drastic recent news bombarding us in the last few days, it is a bit of a relief to see a group of people team up to perform an unsolicited act of kindness.” Local auxiliary firefighters went door

to door all over town in recent weeks, collecting food donations and raising more than $3,000 cash. All eight dealers in the auto mall collected non-perishable food in decorated vehicles in their showrooms, and each contributed $1,000 to the cause. All the money was given directly to Save-OnFoods, which turned the donated cash

into an ‘at-cost’ purchase that saw the value of food purchases almost double. “To see this convoy of donations on the road is quite emotional when one thinks of how may families are positively touched by this unsolicited act of kindness,” said Magown. – FOLLOW US ON TWITTER: @ABBYTIMES

Frozen head a solid winter plan I

just don’t like winter. Every year at this time the ads come on TV, advising me that this is the most wonderful time of the year (humbug!) and that I should get outside, tug on a toque, and smell the pine scented air, preferably from atop a pair of skis or skates purchased from one of my fine local retailers. Unfortunately, I’m only fond of “sports” which can be conducted somewhere warm and preferably dry. Online video games, Scrabble, and competitive sleeping are my favourite winter pursuits. Normally, I write about 15 extra columns and a few news stories (“Politicians made people mad” and “Criminals are dumb” can be written weeks in advance) and then go to sleep for two or three months. I’ve missed my deadline to start hibernating for the season. For the serious hibernator, the time to begin is late August/early September, when you should start your all peanut butter diet and begin lining your burrow with yak fur. Having forgotten to buy the peanut butter and embroiled in a lawsuit against a negligent yak fur vendor from Kathmandu, I am reluctantly moving on to Plan B. I’m going to have myself frozen until next spring. This is a bit pricey, but compared to the cost of three months of gas, food, car insur-

MATTHEW CLAXTON

the painful truth ance, rent, and power bills, it’s actually cheap. I do see the irony in having myself frozen to avoid the cold, but a bit of cryonic stasis will leave me thoroughly unconscious. As unconscious as you can get, since I’ll technically be dead. This is also a good way to get out of paying some taxes, FYI. In the spring, I’ll be bathed in a warm bath of goo by technicians who will zap my heart back to life and get me to sign all my government-mandated reanimation forms on the way out, certifying that I am indeed fully alive and that I do not crave the blood, flesh, and/or brains of the living. This year, I might save even more by having just my head frozen. It’s a lot cheaper to get the cocoanut lopped off and stored by itself. You need a lot less liquid nitrogen, and the head storage unit is the bachelor suite of cryonic holding facilities. I’m still trying to decide what to do with my body. I could rent it out, thus making a profit from my voyage

away from the land of the living. There are always UFC fighters looking for a sparring dummy, but I’d need them to certify that I’d get it back with all its bones intact. I could also attach a half-empty pickle jar to the neck hole and send it out on the sideshow circuit as “Picklo, the Man With the Pickle Jar Head.” But there are already two Picklos working the circuit, and they hate competition. The one from Wisconsin is pretty litigious, I’ve heard, and all my legal funds are tied up in Claxton versus Yak Emporium. Work as a crash test dummy, scarecrow, or life-sized game of Operation doesn’t pay as well as it used to. I blame all the outsourcing to headless bodies overseas. Whatever I wind up doing with it, by next March I’ll be ready to have my head sewn back on, and with the delicate nerve fibres in my spine reattached using Krazy Glue, I’ll be up and about again. Skipping winter is its own reward. No long, dark nights that never seem to end. No mornings spent scraping frozen crow poop off the car windshield. No fighting the crowds of mall zombies for Christmas presents. I’d rather go the pickle jar route. ■ Visit Matthew Claxton’s blog at tinyurl.com/7mwo2qj.

o doubt parents across Abbotsford, Mission, and much of the world held their children a little tighter following reports of Friday’s devastating school shooting in Newtown, Conn. For those following on Twitter, the events unfolded like a paralyzing nightmare: a school shooting but no children killed. Then a handful of children, then 10, 17, and finally, horrendously, 20. All in addition to six slain adults. Even now, days later, it’s impossible to comprehend. Children, 11 days from Christmas morning. Many would have already hung stockings for Santa. Imagine the 25th in Newtown’s homes peppered with half-eaten advent calendars and presents tagged with names now listed in the obituary pages instead of Sandy Hook Elementary’s Christmas concert program. Fortunately we’re blessed with different laws – and a different culture – when it comes to guns here in Canada. And while our enduring squabble over gun registry obviously shows we’re not all on the same page, most Canadians aren’t even holding the same book as a shocking number of locked-and-loaded Americans hiding behind their antiquated and likely misinterpreted Second Amendment. With our proximity to the U.S. and proclivity for cross-border shopping, America’s policies affect us directly. While we might not know what our politicians can do to assist, we can at least help them understand that restrictions on automatic weapons (to start) would only strengthen relationships with our southern cousins. In the meantime, mental illness is something we can act upon immediately. If you know of someone with extremely violent thoughts or urges, please look into the wealth of assistance offered through workplace programs, churches, or governmental agencies such as B.C.’s Department of Children and Family Development. But maybe, for now, just go ahead and squeeze your kids one more time.

A failing grade for tossing report

Editor, the Times:

Last Monday, city council aborted a year-long program helping Abbotsford develop a sustainable future. The project, in its final draft stages, and after many studies and community consultations with business, industry, agriculture, and hundreds of citizen participants, was funded with grants that we will now be required to return out of taxpayers’ pockets. We may also lose millions in provincial gas tax credits accessible only to communities that have sustainability policies in place. That council, after many years of acknowledging the importance of integrated planning, and after developing an official community plan reflecting the values inherent in sustainable principles, would turn its back on a supporting and guiding vision is simply unbelievable. The long-term costs of neglecting our civic responsibilities in the economic and social sectors is well established. We are only beginning to understand that environmental health is just as important, just as fragile, in fact, interconnected to Santa photos in Mission

social and economic health. We can only make progress toward a truly sustainable future Abbotsford when we learn how to grow our city and economy without destroying our natural capital (our air, water, soil, forests) and our natural environment. With very little cost to our city, we could have acquired a valuable instruction manual to help encourage us toward a prosperous, healthy future, setting an example for other communities in the Fraser Valley and beyond. I can only hope council made this decision without enough consultation. I can only hope they will reconsider. John Vissers Abbotsford

YMCA great, but too much for our plate Editor, the Times:

I am very disappointed in the decision of council to give a massive amount of money to this YMCA project. Only weeks after the mayor spoke up regarding the plan A fiasco and the huge bleed to our civic coffers from the Abbotsford Heat project, mayor

and council want to get involved in another municipal/private venture. As has been pointed out, we have two very nice rec centres here (the need for the newest one a big part of Plan A) plus a host of private rec facilities, so how can council justify this idea? I have no issue with the YMCA, they do provide some great services, but as taxpayers we need to prioritize what’s important. Only a few months ago the city cut funding to a downtown woman’s shelter due to a lack of money, and then we get this? We can find money for hockey teams, golf courses, and now another rec facility? I know the public has a short memory, but not that short. Last election, we got ourselves a new mayor, but it appears by re-electing the same council we have signed ourselves up for more of the same reckless spending that brought us Plan A, and tried to hook us

Naturalists Meet

Jan. 9 at 7:30 p.m., Tanya Bettles, environmental coordinator at the City of Abbotsford, talks about the Sumas Mountain Environ-

into the P3 project. Unfortunately I believe that this was only a result of poor options at the ballot box. It’s time for this council to be accountable to the taxpayers and to address some of the social issues in this city, as was done with police funding, and the results there speak for themselves. There is a need for programs like the YMCA offers, but there are economically better ways to provide those services. Share the numbers, show us the evidence, because I fail to see how this won’t affect tax rates. Kent Roberts Abbotsford

‘Porn burning’ issue still smouldering Editor, the Times:

I just read the letter Front page ‘porn’ makes him burn (Times, Nov. 29). I can’t believe the Times even published it. This is the 21st

Community events

century, not the 1800s. I had to read the letter twice, thinking I missed something and then it hit me, it’s called ‘narrow-minded.’ Women have been showing off their bodies since Adam and Eve. Get over it! Apparently the writer had to cut out the picture and burn it; why not just throw the paper out? There’s a problem alright, but it’s not with the article. Pamela Whiteford Abbotsford

Driving home a point about parking Editor, the Times:

It just boggles my mind how the City of Abbotsford could allow parking on DeLair Road, east of the new Cactus Club. There is no sidewalk or lighting at night. How could the city allow a development there with inadequate parking, I have called the city many times, e-mailed the mayor and I just get the ‘pass the buck’ excuse. One person from the city even told me it was the Cactus Club’s responsibility. I would ask the mayor or someone from the development department of the city to park on DeLair

and walk up to the Cactus Club, maybe at night, with their grandmother with her walker, or spouse pushing a stroller. It is unreliable they allow parking with no sidewalks, yet they just expanded the sidewalks at DeLair Park on both sides of the road. It is just a matter of time till someone gets hit by a car there. Wake up city, spend some money on a sidewalk there instead of the YMCA. L. Bell Abbotsford

Felger is a shining example for us all Editor, the Times:

All Canadians owe a debt of gratitude to Tim Felger. Thanks to Tim, any store owner or any homeowner can now order the police to leave their property, and the police must comply or face trespassing charges. Tim Felger is living proof that one dedicated person can make a difference. One brave man stood up to a whole police force, and now all Canadians have more rights to stand on. Thank you Tim.

Teen gifts are scarce; gift cards are ideal TOYS, from page A3 food is rolling in, thanks to the generosity of valley residents. December is the busiest month for the food drive, and while staff hope that supplies will last through the year, they find the food runs out by mid summer. But they are now focusing on their need for toys, to brighten the holiday for kids of all ages. Some of the more popular items they’re hoping to receive are: for girls – Barbie dolls, Monster High Dolls, My Little Pony, other

Shop Downtown Mission

Can’t find what you are looking for? That’s why you need Downtown Mission where shop owners help you find what you need. Let me tell you about MY day Downtown… 9:00 am – My friend Dawn loves to eat breakfast out, so we decide to meet at Paul’s Café (33261 First Ave) since he has the best deal in town. For under $5 I get what he calls a “½” order, 2 eggs, 2 slices of bacon, hash browns and toast - complete with jam. What a treat! 10:00 am – I walk across the street to Lucky Loonie’s Dollar Store (33228 1st Ave), where I get wrapping paper, bows and cards, but hold on … at the cash register they have THE cutest Belgium chocolate bars with sayings on them, like

‘Best Wishes’ with wedding bells or ‘Get Better Soon’ or ‘Happy Holidays’, nice gift for under $3, I may stock up on these. I love the stationary gift sets they have in; I know my sister Jodi would love one of these too.

10:30 am – My nephew loves leggo so I go into Warcraft Game Store (33232 1st Ave) where Matt shows me sets that Johnny would love, all for under $20! Alex, my other nephew would love the train sets they sell here too, decisions, decisions... 11:00 am – I have to go for an appointment at Natural Reflextions Day Spa (7340 Horne) for some threading. Don’t know what that is? Well, this is embarrassing … Ask them, they will tell you all about it my (hairy) friend. By the way, threading is half the price of waxing and way better than pulling on sensitive skin.

3:00 pm – I found myself inside the new store 3 Crows Gallery, Giftware & Framing (33130 1st Ave) where the fudge is irresistible (it is break time and a little something sweet hits the spot) and the soaps and candles all wrapped up make a wonderful hostess gift , a must buy. My mother-in-law Lorraine would love this art gallery, I will have to bring here on our next ‘girls day’ outing.

1:30 pm – My husband Mark needs me to pick up his business cards at Sue’s Copy Place (20433123 1st Ave). Rhett and his mother Sue do great work.

12:00 noon – As usual, this chubby girl is hungry and although everyone says the buffet at Yummy House is delicious (33082 1st Ave) I just don’t want to spend the time so I go for a Dogwood Club sandwich from Dogwood Bakery (33219 N. Railway). I like to eat and walk. Makes me forget how many calories I am actually eating. I have to say, if eating and window shopping was an Olympic sport, I bet I could win. Just saying is all…

1:15 pm – Feeling sorry for myself, I stop in to say hello to Amber at Industry Workwear (33118A 1st Ave) and she shows me the cutest bright pink vest that would be perfect for this type of weather. I deserve it, right?

11:30 am – Went to Bent Needle Fabrics and Children’s Clothing (33175 N. Railway) and fell in love with the sparkly purses Sharel and Vicki are selling. My fashionista sister-in-law Debra would love one of these. Only $15! For only $1.50 they have the cutest headbands for babies. Why isn’t everyone here shopping?

Some holiday baking advice to ensure your Christmas cookies and pie crusts rise to the occasion.

Baking tips for your great holiday goodies

N

othing compares to the aroma of baked Christmas goodies when coming in from the cold winter weather. Our olfactory sensations (our sense of smell) contribute up to 80 percent to our sense of taste, and thus, is a very important part of our ability to recognize and enjoy flavour. The art of holiday baking is a regular activity in many households this time of the year, and some baking tips may be helpful to you. Flaky pie dough is a pastry that has a mixture of shortening and/or butter that is “cut in” so that there are small chunks still left in the finished product. This aids in creating steam pockets within the crust, which helps with the leavening process and to create the flaky texture. It is best to keep pie pastry as cold possible while mixing and rolling to prevent melting the butter and shortening pieces prematurely. The best way of doing this is to first focus on your ingredients. Make sure you are using ice water instead of cold water, and frozen butter grated into the flour mixture is ideal. The frozen butter particles then are already the required size from the grater and will not suffer from the warm friction of too much

CHEF DEZ

On cooking mixing or “cutting” in. Secondly, try not to touch the dough with your hands too much, as their warmth will melt the butter. It is best to form the dough by folding it over consistently with a chilled metal dough cutter. Once the dough is formed into a flat disk, wrap and place it in the refrigerator until thoroughly chilled. Remove and proceed with rolling, ideally on a chilled marble surface. Cookies and quick breads are also very popular, and they both rely on baking soda and/or baking powder to rise. Baking soda and baking powder are considered chemical leaveners. Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate, and it requires liquid and an acid to make a gaseous reaction. It is usually added to recipes that have a naturally occurring acid in the ingredients, such as buttermilk, yogurt, sour cream, honey, molasses, and fruits. Baking powder on the other hand is a complete leavener, as it only requires liquid for it to react in the

same manner. The reason for this is that it contains a mixture of baking soda and the balanced amount of acid, along with starch to help prevent lumping. This is why you will see some recipes that call for baking powder and others with baking powder and/or baking soda. A good comparison of this would be a pancake recipe compared to a buttermilk pancake recipe. Whatever desserts you choose to celebrate with, I wish you all the best of health and happiness this holiday season.

Dear Chef Dez:

Could you please tell me how I can make self-rising flour by myself? Kimie T. Maple Ridge

Dear Kimie:

Yes, by all means. Mix together 1 cup of flour with one and a half teaspoons of baking powder and half a teaspoon of salt. Send your food/cooking questions to dez@chefdez.com or P.O. Box 2674, Abbotsford, BC V2T 6R4 ■ Chef Dez is a food columnist,

As Abbotsford is the “City in the Country” and enjoys an urban progressiveness while preserving an appreciation for its agricultural heritage, it is an ideal location to begin to recognize those who are making an effort to preserve the environment. Through honouring these businesses, it is hoped that other businesses will learn and follow. It is time for us all to work together to make a difference. These annual awards will publicly acknowledge the initiative, dedication, and hard work that businesses, individuals and/or groups have put into caring for our environment and protecting our natural heritage. The second annual Abbotsford Environmental Leadership Awards banquet recognizing all nominees and winners will be held on January 31, 2013.

Heat grab shootout win

Kolanos, Brust step up for final 2012 home game

The 2012 Abbotsford rugby youth award winners were announced last week after strong seasons that saw the U-18 girls and U-15 boys win their divisional championships.

Briefly

n their final home game of 2012, the Abbotsford Heat defeated the Texas Stars 2-1 in a shootout at the AESC Saturday night. Krys Kolanos scored a power play goal in regulation and added the shootout winner while netminder Barry Brust stopped all but one shot through 65 minutes to earn his eighth win in 10 starts this season. The victory keeps the Heat in top spot in the Western Conference with 36 points. “That’s a tough team. They’re better than their record shows,” said Brust of the Stars. On Friday for the annual Teddy Bear Toss, the Heat lost to Texas 31, with the lone goal coming from rookie defenseman Brady Lamb (his first goal of the season). That was what the 3,700 fans were waiting for, as they sent more than 1,200 Teddy bears flying from the rafters and onto the ice midway through the second period. The stuffed animals were delivered to the Abbotsford Food Bank in time for Christmas. That was the bright spot in a somewhat lackluster game before the Heat rebounded back on Saturday night. “It’s been a little bit of a tough stretch for us,” said head coach Troy Ward. “We just hung in there, last night [Friday] and tonight we were sharper mentally.” In Saturday’s contest, Kolanos scored his fifth goal of the season with assists from Ben Street and Roman Horak. The game remained tied 1-1 at the end of regulation and overtime. “Ben’s been consistent, he continues to make plays, he leads the league in shots,” said Ward. “He’s been a big part of our special teams this year.” In the shootout, T.J. Brodie, Horak

U-19 Boys (Tier 1) - 3rd in BC U-18 Girls – 1st in BC U-17 Boys – 4th in BC U-16 Boys – no program this year U-15 Boys – 1st in Mainland; (Vancouver Island didn’t play a final) U-14 Boys - undefeated in jamboree play (20-0)

U-19 Tier 1 men award:

and Kolanos scored for the Heat, and Brust stopped three of five shots to give the Heat their second shootout win of the season. Brust stopped 39 of 40 shots in the game and remains undefeated in regulation this season. The Heat were outshot 40 to 27. “Barry’s been really unbelievalble in shootouts all year. He gives us a chance,” said Ward. The Heat now head out on the road to play six games before the New Year, with their first coming tomorrow morning against the Chicago Wolves (AHL affiliate of the Vancouver Canucks) at 9 a.m. PST. The Saturday, Dec. 29 game against the Wolves will be broadcast on Sportsnet One. Puck drop is set for 5 p.m. PST. The Heat will play eight home games in January, including games against the Chicago Wolves Jan. 1112 and the Hamilton Bulldogs (AHL affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens) Jan. 15-16. They open their homestand on Friday, Jan. 4 against the Rochester Americans (Buffalo Sabres) at 7 p.m. at the AESC.

Abbotsford Figure Skating Club’s novice dance skaters Tyler Miller, 18, and Alexa Linden, 17, placed second in provincials and took third place in Skate Canada Western Challenge Dec. 6-9 in Regina, Sask. on Dec. 6-9. Their third place finish qualifies them for the Skate Canada National Championships to be held in January in Ontario. Abbotsford figure pairs skaters Megan Geddes, 14, and Gary Tsai, 17, placed 11th in the Skate Canada Western Challenge, the national competition for pre-novice skaters Dec. 6-9. Their season ends with this competition. The pair from the Abbotsford Skating Club had earlier taken first place at the BC/YT Sectional Championships (the provincial competition).

Rick Hansen Secondary and Eugene Reimer Middle are teaming up to host several basketball tournaments this year, for grades 7-8 and 9-10 which will be called Hansen Classics. Dates for the tournaments are as follows: Junior girls (grades 9-10) – Dec. 20-22 (16 teams) Junior boys (grades 9-10) – Jan. 10-12 (16 teams) Grade 8 boys – Jan. 17-19 (24 teams) Grade 7 boys/girls – Feb. 9-10 (26 teams combines) The tournaments will be played at Rick Hansen Secondary and Eugene Reimer Middle School. Teams are coming from as far east as Merritt and west to North Vancouver. Hansen and Reimer are looking for sponsors to help with the tournament costs. For more see www.classjump.com/h/hurricane/ or call Jas Gill at 604-864-0011.

The BC Angels of the Lingerie Football League played in the league’s inaugural international USA vs Canada Pacific Cup Saturday in Seattle. The Angels are the LFL Canadian champions. In front of a near capacity crowd, the hometown Seattle Mist beat the BC Angels 38-18 to take the Pacific Cup. The game highlighted the LFL strategy to further branch the sport into territories outside of the U.S. to include leagues in Canada (2012), Australia (2013) and Europe (2015). National teams are also expected to be formed in Mexico, South America and Asia.
