he Abbotsford Heat, the Calgary Flames’ AHL farm team, are moving to Utica, N.Y. next season, paving the way for the Canucks’ farm team to move closer to its parent club. At least that was the rumour flying around on Twitter and Internet sports media Sunday. The rumour stemmed from

a New York media outlet’s blog post citing unnamed sources that said the Heat of the American Hockey League would move into a renovated Utica Memorial Auditorium at the start of next season. But Louis Steppello, of the seven-member board that oversees the arena owned by New York State, quashed the see HEAT, page A7

He documented Shaminder’s transformation from a bright high school student to a promising a college student with a job and savings, whose life then began to unravel as her addiction and mental health issues progressed. It was difficult for his parents to keep Shaminder, who was first diagnosed with bipolar disorder and later with schizophrenia, on her medication and stop her from mixing them with street drugs and alcohol. In the days following the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the world trade centre in New York, Shaminder talked of hearing voices in her head that told her to kill her family to prevent them from being tortured to death by terrorists. “My father and mother pleaded with the doctors to put her in a rehabilitation center where medication will be monitored and alcohol and banned substances will not be present and she could get the proper treatment,” wrote Gurvinder .

Shaminder Brar, 34, was found by a passing motorist dead in a ditch along Riverside Road on the morning of Feb. 18. Abbotsford Police are investigating and appealing for witnesses in the apparent hit-and-run. But family and friends say the young woman’s death is ultimately the symptom of a failing health care system that cannot help people who have mental health and substance abuse issues. Shaminder spoke to the Times about her challenges back in April, 2008 (above).

continue to struggle on? We’re not secondary people.” Health ministry spokesman Ryan Jabs said it can be misleading to judge health authority funding on a percapita basis. He noted the ministry reviews demographics, growth rates, population size, client needs, remoteness of communities and services each health authority provides to patients from other health authorities. Jabs said Coastal Health spends more money for many reasons, including: ■ Providing specialized services such as organ transplants, bone marrow transplants, cochlear implants and adult metabolic services for rare diseases. ■ Providing significant services to people who live in the Fraser Valley region but regularly commute to Vancouver. ■ Serving people in the Downtown Eastside, who tend to be more vulnerable and have higher health care costs. He said the Fraser Valley’s higher population growth rate has been reflected in Fraser Health’s funding the past six years, with the authority’s funding increase averaging seven per cent a year, compared with less than five per cent a year for Coastal Health.

Community raises $26K for street youth

T

he sun was just setting on a gorgeous winter day on Saturday, but that didn’t keep folks from hitting the pavement for ‘The Coldest Night of the Year’ walk in Abbotsford. Sporting bright yellow toques, people walked to raise awareness for street youth and to raise money for the local Cyrus Centre. “ We w a n t t o s u p p o r t Abbotsford’s homeless issue,” said Herman Stahl, who was hoofing the five kilometre route. “And for ourselves, to be aware of it and raise the level of interest and funds for Cyrus Centre.” About 200 people of all ages registered for the local walk, which has been going on across Canada for years, but is in its inaugural year in Abbotsford. The walk featured a 2km, 5km and 10km distance. “My brother works for Cyrus Centre and I believe in what they do for the community,” said Carissa Krause. Cyrus Centre director Les Talvio was on hand at the Ware Street location to greet walkers part way through their journey and hand out hot chocolate. “I’m just blown away, amazed,” he said of the number of walkers and the response the centre has received.

About 200 people of all ages took part in Abbotsford’s first Coldest Night of the Year walk on Saturday, and raised $26,000 for the Cyrus Centre and homeless youth.

The walk raised $26,000, surpassing their goal of $25,000 said Talvio. All the money raised will go to the Cyrus Centre for their ‘Roof 4 Youth’ initiative. On any given day, there are 35-50 youth (under the age of 19 with the youngest being 12) who are homeless, couch surfing or staying in unsafe situations in Abbotsford said Talvio. “Our goal is to see all youth have a roof over their heads,” he said. Cyrus Centre has been consistently full since September, with four regular beds for overnight stays and up to 14

Something out of a bad action movie BACON, from page A1 Grand Okanagan hotel at around 2:45 p.m. on Aug. 14, 2011. The shooting was an act so brazen it might have been mistaken for a something out of a bad action movie, said Malo. The Bacon hit was likely in retaliation for the death of longtime gangster Gurmit Singh Dhak in a targeted shooting at Burnaby’s Metrotown Mall in October 2010. Dhack’s death has been a “flash point” for the spiral of gang violence that ensued, said Malo. “But the Bacon shooting has resulted in a cascade of violence seen in this province over the last 18 months,” he added. Although Bacon, Amero and Riach had history with other crime groups, the trio was also part of a recently formed alliance known as the wolf pack, said Malo. “All the individuals are well known to policing in B.C.,” he said. Khun-khun, who had strong ties to both the murdered Dhak brothers, recently survived a targeted shooting on Jan. 15 that killed Manjinder Singh Hairan, 29, in Surrey. All three suspects charged in the Kelowna shooting were arrested without incident after

various police agencies executed a warrant on Feb. 22, said Malo. Khun-Khun was arrested in Surrey, while Jones, from Gibsons, B.C., and McBride, from North Vancouver, were arrested in Vancouver and Toronto, respectively. Police and the public were appalled by the public nature of the “reckless” act of gang violence, said Malo. “But if they are determined to commit murder, they will do so and it doesn’t matter who is in the way.”

This service is scheduled to commence on Sunday March 3rd, 2013 and will be an extension of the Red Deer / Kelowna / Red Deer route. This route will begin in Red Deer and fly direct to Kelowna and then continue on to Abbotsford. The return route will be Abbotsford / Kelowna / Red Deer.

Flames “committed to Abbotsford”

Wants policy change

rumour Sunday, saying the report of a deal with the Flames is false and that a group of local business leaders have approached several NHL teams about moving their farm teams. “Everything’s taken out of context,” Steppello said. Heat spokesman Ryan Pinder directed fans to the Calgary Flames, which issued a statement denying the rumour and praising the current relationship with their Abbotsford farm team. “We have been approached by representatives in Utica

at the psych ward and no longer deemed a threat to the public or herself, Shaminder was sent home. As in the past, Shaminder would be fine for a while, but the cycle would begin again and she’d start to self medicate with a mix of medication and street drugs. Shaminder’s older brother, Barinder, said the family kept being told that Shaminder had to voluntarily commit to drug treatment programs. “We kept on hearing she’s an adult and we couldn’t help her because she had to admit herself to treatment, but how can somebody with those mental health issues make that decision?” Barinder told the Times Monday. Shaminder’s family continued to reach out to her while she was on the streets

concerning an opportunity for the AHL. We understand they are building a case for the AHL to return there,” the statement said. “We are under contract and committed to Abbotsford, and have made no alternate commitments.” The rumours of the money-losing Heat moving and the Canucks installing their farm team into the $85-million Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre have persisted for years. They are made more plausible by the belief that such a move could reverse dwindling attendance numbers at the 7,000-seat cityowned arena.

HEAT, from page A1

The City of Abbotsford entered into a 10-year supply fee agreement with the Heat, owned by Fraser Valley Sports and Entertainment and Abbotsford Heat Hockey Ltd., in April of 2009. The agreement states that the local ownership group is guaranteed $5.7 million in revenue and the city — at the cost of taxpayers — must subsidize the franchise for any financial shortfalls. In the last three seasons, the Heat has accrued a total financial loss of around $3.5 million and have been, along with the city itself, at the centre of controversy over the deal.

SHAM, from page A3

and tried getting her into treatment, but doctors resorted to telling her family the most effective thing they could do was let Shaminder “hit rock bottom”. The family even reached out to their MLA Mike de Jong, health minister at the time, to no avail for a meeting about what health care changes might be made to help Shaminder and others like her, said Barinder. Mandatory drug rehabilitation has been used in Europe with some success, he noted. “We are really disheartened. . . we wanted to see a policy change,” Barinder said. “We understand reservations around forcing people into mandatory treatment, but some discussion to find a solution has to take place so people having these problems can get treatment.” ■ The Warm Zone is planning a memorial event for Shaminder Brar on Friday.

Big space rock a cool way to go out I

’ve now decided how I want to die. I want to be killed by a meteorite. Earlier this month, a big chunk or rock and/or metal slammed through the sky above Russia, blasting out windows and injuring thousands. While this is, of course, a terrible tragedy, at least it’s one with some grandeur. It’s no petty sink hole or flood, it���s death from space! Unfortunately, my best chance for being killed by a meteorite happened more than a century ago. It was also in Russia, as it happens, in a remote region of Siberia known as Tunguska. The Tunguska Event may not technically have been a meteorite (which hits the ground in at least one piece) but it was definitely a meteor (which flies through the sky, leaving a visible trail). In fact, it was visible across a vast swathe of Asia and Europe. Observers at the time, who included officials and townspeople hundreds of miles away, and tribal reindeer herders much closer, described the event variously as being shoved around by a mysterious force, a sound of artillery and underground trains, hot winds, thunder, and the sensation that the ground was being hit by large rocks. That was in 1908, and it wasn’t until the early 1920s that Soviet scientists managed to hack their way through hundreds of miles of boggy forest to find the site of the blast. What they found was massive

MATTHEW CLAXTON

the painful truth devastation: a core of scorched trees (superstitiously avoided by the locals) surrounded by about 2,000 square kilometres of fallen trees. No single piece of a meteorite from the Tunguska Event has ever been found, which has inspired suggestions that perhaps something other than mere space rocks were to blame. Actual cause of the Tunguska Event: probably a sizeable meteor that exploded in midair, unleashing an atomic-bomb sized blast.

Proposed causes: ■ Tiny black hole tunneling through Earth. ■ Alien spacecraft, either crashing, blowing up, or getting royally pissed off at a reindeer and deciding to zap Rudolf. ■ Wandering chunk of antimatter hitting the upper atmosphere. Shame it didn’t land on Dan Brown. ■ Nikola Tesla. The last is my favourite explanation, because it lets me use the phrase “death ray.” Tesla,

who invented alternating current and was thus also partially responsible for the greatest Australian rock band of all time, had built a sizeable tower just before 1908, to be used for transmitting radio waves, and, you know, vast amounts of electricity through the air. Then in the 1930s he started talking up his plans for an antiaircraft gun based on shooting charged particles, blab blah blah physics blah blah DEATH RAY! He was completely serious about this. However, in his later years it was hard to tell whether he was still a brilliant, madcap inventor or just mad. The man’s pigeon fixation was getting pretty bad by then. So it’s fairly unlikely that he created the Tunguska Event. Anyway, Tunguska wasn’t the biggest meteor to blast a hole in the planet, not by a long shot. Everyone knows about the dinosaur killer, the Chixulub comet that slammed into the Yucatan about 66 million years ago. But there were bigger ones even than that. Ever been to Sudbury? About 1.8 billion years ago, a rock hit that spot, leaving a 250-kilometre-wide crater. If there had been life more complicated than slime, that would have punched its ticket. We’d all be dead if it happened now, but what a way to go. ■ Visit Matthew Claxton’s blog at tinyurl.com/7mwo2qj.

he proverbial ping-pong pundit game provided the usual fare after the Liberals tabled their budget. NDP operatives slammed the 2.6 per cent increase in health-care spending, insisting it was a cut. Some criticized the government for selling Crown land and buildings (estimated at $800 million) and so on, and so on. Granted the Liberals did some unpopular things: increasing MSP premiums, and raising taxes for those making more than $150,000 a year, and hiking corporate taxes. But did they really have any choice? The mere fact that they raised taxes on the over-$150,000 group – their target supporters – indicates that they were making choices they would rather not have made. The truth is that there simply are no good choices. The Liberals, through their own making – and with some help from a flaccid economy – are faced with the inevitable “between a rock and a hard place” cliche. They cannot offer their supporters any more free rides, and they also can’t cut community services anymore – triggering more ugly headlines and giving Adrian Dix ammunition. The problem is Dix can, at this point, just criticize and stand back hoping no one notices that he cleverly avoids offering any clear, viable alternatives. It reminds us of an election a couple of decades ago when the hot topic was the government taking casino funds. An NDP insider confided that he hoped the Liberals would do it, even though the NDP had criticized it. He knew that government coffers were in desperate need of a new cash flow, and casinos would be a cash cow. And, when the NDP won the next election, they could tut tut about it all they wanted, but they all knew that they would never roll back the decision and lose all that money. We think Dix can tut tut all he wants now, but he knows, as do others, that the NDP isn’t going to roll back anything that can bring in much-needed cash.

Light bulb goes off with fixture purchase Editor, the Times:

Most recently my husband purchased a small light fixture at Walmart, the cost of which was $10.89. Not a bad price, but wait a moment – add the environmental fee of $0.85, the Hydro fee of $3.96 and top all that off with the HST of $1.89. I can’t believe that Hydro especially can get away with a fee like that on an $11 item. It nearly gave me a stroke. Now that light fixture cost $17.68. The Hydro cost being over 30 per cent of the cost of the seemingly inexpensive item is taking food from the mouths of the poor. I would consider a light fixture a necessity, wouldn’t you? Would the politicians please add that extra $6 to my pension cheque next month? It would be put to better use. Aina Baron Abbotsford

Give a hand against moral degradation Editor, the Times:

Kent Roberts does not want to live in a ‘theocracy.’ Neither do I. Kent wants to thank council for striking down this ridiculous ‘facilities use bylaw.’ Kent should reserve his thanks for another day. Mayor Banman and John Smith were offended by a motion that merely proposed a discussion with

staff, sometime down the road, some sort of minimal guideline to assist them, as to what sorts of events would be suitable for publicly-owned facilities. In fact there are existing minimal decency clauses within the AESC contract already. But council has a pattern of having bylaws/guidelines that are applied – or not – with no apparent rationale. So just to make this clear, the mere possibility of a discussion about guidelines is what was struck down. While declaring they wish to exercise zero control over events in buildings directly under their authority, the very next thing on council agenda was a ban on the sale of shark fin soup, in private eateries, something over which council has no real jurisdiction. Protect the sharks, allow city buildings to be used for sexually exploitive events. Throw the women to the sharks. Mr. Roberts places a high premium on freedom. So do I. Therefore I expect to hear Mr. Roberts applaud my freedom to speak against morally degrading events in our pubic buildings. Gerda Peachey Abbotsford

There are 7,000 people throughout the province who have an inherited risk of fainting or dying suddenly from an abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia) – often this is only discovered through an event like fainting. However, research indicates that this is just the tip of the iceberg – for every person identified with inherited arrhythmia, four or more family members may unknowingly be at risk. The condition can be managed with simple medical intervention, but when left unmonitored, it puts lives in danger. As the recently appointed Sauder Family and Heart and Stroke Foundation chair in cardiology, we are assembling a team of experts to build a network of clinics to discover those British Columbians at risk, and provide them with protection. Despite all of our advances in prevention and treatment of heart disease, several thousand people in British Columbia die suddenly every year.

Pink Shirt Day Proudly pink tomorrow

A

bbotsford schools are planning a selection of activities for Pink Shirt Day on Wednesday, Feb. 27, including:

f you hear that your child is being bullied, your first instinct might be to intervene and immediately take action. Depending upon the situation, it may be more effective to offer support and suggestions to help your child handle the problem. According to the 2012 RBC Children’s Mental Health poll, parents would like their child to approach them about mental health issues but children are more inclined to confide in their friends. Keeping an open dialogue with your kids and talking about bullying can help open the lines of communication.

Steve Andrew of “Bully Back Off” is doing workshops with all Grade 6 students. He is also training schools’ Peer Mediators to help with anti-bullying efforts. Students will participate in an anti-bullying flash mob outside at 2:05 p.m. near the end of the day.

Upper Sumas

Doing ‘Stop Drop and Think Pink,’ students will be sharing their bullying prevention messages on the PA system throughout the day.

Here are some additional tips on dealing with bullying: • Rehearse situations that might be difficult. Give your

child a chance to practise a calm reaction they can use if bullying happens. • Help your child understand the bully. Children who are bullied may think they deserve to be treated in cruel ways. Tell them that everybody deserves to be treated courteously, and that bullies often act out because it makes them feel powerful. • Build your child’s selfesteem. Being bullied can make a child feel less selfconfident. Give your child opportunities to enjoy activities that make them feel safe. Help them find groups of people with similar interests. Some children benefit from activities in another town, where the bully has no influence. – WWW.NEWSCANADA.COM

Pork chop video goes viral P

ork chop. To this day, the unwanted nickname given to Shane Koyczan by childhood bullies is still an emotional trigger. “I don’t think you grow out of things like that,” said the Canadian slam poet in response to naysayers who believe kids can “grow out” of bullying. Bullying – not just on the playground, but in life and beyond – is the topic of Koyczan’s latest work, titled To This Day. The poem and its accompanying video were released

SCAN FOR HIT VIDEO Tuesday, a week before Pink Shirt Day on Feb. 27. The video was created using 20-second clips submitted by animators and artists from across the world, and illustrates Koyczan’s and other’s experi-

ences with bullying. According to the B.C.-raised poet, the video was meant to be a concise and direct look at the harmful, lasting effects of childhood bullying. By Monday afternoon, the video had already reached 4,313,209 views on YouTube. “If you feel alone, there’s someone probably just down the street who feels the exact same way. That’s what connects you, that’s what makes you human. In a lot of ways, us being fragile is what gives us strength,” Koyczan said.

ROBYN GRAHAM

Fundata Financial ment techniques where ETFs have delivered the most value and benefit to the investor. Where previously much professional analysis would have focused on individual security selection, global macroeconomic analysis and the resulting asset allocation decisions are now seen as the key drivers of portfolio risk and return. In this context, ETFs can provide the liquidity and affordable access to asset classes that were previously difficult and expensive to access, such as commodities, precious metals, and emerging market fixed income. Furthermore, the proliferation of ETFs now makes it possible for money managers not only to access market returns at a low cost, but

also to fine-tune a portfolio using specialized ETFs such as those focused specifically on one sector or style, say, income generation. As a result, it is now possible to build a better, more diversified portfolio with as little as $100,000 at less cost than was possible 15 years ago with individual securities. In today’s volatile, globally interconnected investment markets, the need for diversification and risk-management has never been more acute. And for something as important as your RRSP portfolio, it’s even more critical to steward capital

on a risk-adjusted basis that protects against volatility and losses. So here are six steps we use to help construct ETF portfolios that meet those criteria: 1. Use global macro allocations to recognize different secular eras. 2. Employ strategic assettype allocation to establish net risk. 3. Establish broad assettype diversification to limit strategic risk. 4. Set investment limits for every holding to reduce concentration risk. 5. Utilize pure asset-type

index ETFs to limit impact of single-security risk. 6. Probability-weight multiple scenarios to insulate portfolios against future risk. ■ Robyn Graham, is vice president and associate portfolio manager of HAHN Investment Stewards.

Tax talk: commonlaw filing

What you should know if living together

T

he tax experts at H&R Block answer one of the most frequently asked questions at this time of the year: Q. I have been living with my boyfriend since July 2012. Do I file as common-law?

UFV & CBC go 1-2 in PACWEST Cascades & Bearcats qualify for nationals

JEAN KONDA-WITTE JKonda-Witte@abbotsfordtimes.com

I

– THE REAL MCKENZIE PHOTOGRAPHY/FOR THE TIMES

CBC Bearcats celebrate a set en route to a semifinal victory over VIU, sending them to the championship match vs. UFV in Cranbrook.

n the first time since forever, two Abbotsford teams met in a PACWEST championship women’s volleyball game, held Saturday at Cranbrook’s College of the Rockies. The UFV Cascades won the contest but it was the Cinderella team, the Columbia Bible College Bearcats, who surprised many by earning a trip to the dance after knocking off the No. 2 ranked Vancouver Island University Mariners in Friday’s semifinal. After nailbiting back-and-forth action in the first four sets, the Bearcats handed the Mariners their walking papers, taking the fifth set by a score of 15-7. Pandemonium ensued as the ’Cats not only advanced to the PACWEST final, but also punched their ticket to the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association (CCAA) national

championship. “It was an indescribable feeling, knocking out the defending PACWEST and CCAA champions,” said Bearcats head coach Duncan Harrison. “The passion and focus from our ladies was just exceptional. They refused to be intimidated by the older and physically stronger VIU team.” If the Bearcats were the underdog of the tournament, they didn’t get the memo. “We always expect to win,” said Harrison of the semifinal matchup. “You must set high goals and have high expectations. The first time something like this happens in a meaningful match, it is overwhelming and emotionally exhausting. We left everything we had on the floor to win that match. Elation is the only word I can think of to describe the mood after that match.” In Saturday’s championship game the Cascades won the final 3-0 (25-19, 25-15, and 25-17) over the Bearcats. “It was a great weekend . . . of great execution under pressure,” said UFV head coach Dennis Bokenfohr. “It was a complete team performance with

contributions coming throughout the lineup.” In the gold medal match, CBC got off to a good start, at one point leading 18-14 in the first set. “UFV made a great serving substitution and ran us for eight straight points. It really took the wind out of our sails,” said Harrison. “We had a few flashes of positive after that but we could never string a big run of our own together . . . we never really got momentum back. [UFV] played very strong and consistent from that point, which is what you would expect from a veteran, well-coached team.” Both teams will now advance to the CCAA National Championship tournament March 7-9 in Lloydminster, Alta. This is the first year the CBC women have qualified for a national championship. “This is a huge step for our program,” said Harrison. “I think we have made a statement that we are a legitimate contender at this point. However, to truly be considered an elite program we will need to continue to have similar results for a few years.”

UFV hoopsters advance to Final Four JEAN KONDA-WITTE JKonda-Witte@abbotsfordtimes.com

T

he University of the Fraser Valley women’s basketball team defeated the University of Saskatchewan 73-58 Saturday in a thrilling third game to clinch the Canada West quarter-finals. With the win the Cascades advance to the Final Four in Calgary this weekend. “I’m really proud of our effort tonight. They pushed us to the max but we didn’t break,” said head coach Al Tuchscherer. “[It’s] a real team effort with key plays from so many different players. I’m excited to be going back to the Final Four.” The Cascades won the first best-ofthree series 65-58 Thursday, then lost to the Huskies 67-56 on Friday. With everything on the line the Cascades came out firing Saturday night with a 12-point offensive run to open the first quarter. The second quarter showed a more ferocious UFV defence, holding Saskatchewan scoreless three minutes in. The second half began with UFV

increasing its lead to 14 before the Huskies went on a nine-point run in the third. The fourth quarter saw the Huskies turn up the intensity to come within two points of the Cascades. Aieisha Luyken and Nicole Wierks showed their veteran strength to take the Cascades from a two-point lead back to a 10-point lead with under a minute to play. Kayli Sartori led the Cascades with 19 points, Sarah Wierks chipped in 13 and Luyken ended with 10 points. The victory marks the third straight year UFV has won the Canada West quarter-finals and moves onto the elite Final Four. The Cascades are looking to advance to their first CIS ‘Final 8’ elite championship tournament, to be held in Regina, Sask. in two weeks.

Men win hoops quarter-finals

The UFV men’s basketball team defeated the University of Saskatchewan Huskies 92-76 in Canada West quarter-final action Sunday to earn a berth in the Final Four tournament this weekend in Point Grey. Kyle Grewal’s veteran leadership and

determination not to see his final year end early paced the Cascades while Klaus Figueredo and Kevon Parchment had big games in the win. “What can you say about the play of Klaus, Manny [Dulay] and Andy [Khaira] tonight; they stepped up and played like fifth year veterans,” said head coach Adam Friesen. “Their contributions in the first half set the tone for the victory.” Dulay and Figueredo hit several three pointers to take the wind out of the Huskies and set the pace for a double digit lead down the stretch, out-scoring Saskatchewan by 10 points in the final stanza to clinch the playoff series victory. Figueredo led UFV in scoring with 22 points, Grewal hit for 19, Dulay and Khaira had 14 each, Parchment 13 and James York 10. “All season long [Sam] Freeman and Parchment led the way; it is nice to see the other guys scoring and having some offensive success,” said Friesen. The two Canada West Final Four semifinal winners will play in Ontario the weekend of March 8-10.

Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
