‘Citizen James’ to the rescue Store manager extinguishes mattress and saves homeless man

bbotsford resident James Cunningham was hailed a hero and got teary hugs and hearty handshakes for saving a homeless man from a fire on Sunday night. Cunningham, a manager at the Canadian Tire on South Fraser Way, was doing a security check around the building at 8:30 p.m. when he saw flames in the bushes in the empty lot behind the store. The 28-year-old didn’t think before reacting. Calling 911 and grabbing a fire extinguisher from the store, Cunningham dashed back and started to douse the fire that had engulfed a mattress lying on the ground and

lthough wages for senior ministry staff soared as Premier Christy Clark introduced her new cabinet last week, Finance Minister Mike de Jong said with the pay scale restructuring, the overall staff budget is not increasing. On June 3, Clark’s outgoing cabinet passed an order in council that reclassified a number of ministerial assistants as chiefs of staff and would give them a maximum salary cap of $105,000, higher than the basic salary MLAs earn. The previous cap for chiefs of staff in ministry offices was $94,500. The government won’t reveal how many staffers got pay hikes in the reclassification, but the premier’s office said the total staff budget is reduced from $5.74 million to $5.71 million with the changes. Wage caps for the premier’s aides are significantly higher. Clark’s new deputy chief of staff, Michele Cadario, who was also the B.C. Liberals’ deputy campaign manager, will now earn $195,000, about $50,000 more than what predecessor Kim Haakstad earned with a salary cap of $144,000. Haakstad resigned earlier this year in the wake of the infamous ethnic outreach scandal. The cap for the deputy chief of staff role is now $230,000, a boost of almost 60 per cent. Clark’s chief of staff can now also earn a top rate of $230,000, up 18 per cent from the previous ceiling of $195,148. In an email response to the Times on Friday, de Jong said the changes to the pay structure are part of changes to improve accountability in ministers’ offices. “New positions have been created to reflect these new accountabilities. The salary grid has been changed to reflect these roles and accountabilities,” wrote de Jong, also MLA for Abbotsford West. Even so, Jordan Bateman, spokesman for the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, noted the new wage scale was rich especially when compared to other governments’ pay scales, such as the White House in the States. “Barack Obama’s chief of staff running the White House makes $175,000 a year.” see RAISES, page A4

Mother goose bludgeoned on her nest of egg ROCHELLE BAKER RBaker@abbotsfordtimes.com

A

bbotsford police have identified the three youths who attacked a nesting goose, leaving it bloodied and injured last week. As a result, a conservation officer contacted the three teenage boys, two aged 16 and one 17, and their parents, said Const. Ian MacDonald, who described the attack as sickening. The main aggressor against the

bird has been issued a $345 fine for molesting or injuring a bird, said a spokesman from B.C. Conservation Officer Service on Monday. A security guard at the Sevenoaks Shopping Centre discovered the Canada goose – covered in blood but still sitting on her eggs – in the parkade on April 27, said MacDonald. The guard immediately called Elizabeth’s Wildlife Rescue Center and its members arrived shortly after to evaluate the animal. The goose was still caring for

its clutch of eggs, so the experts decided not to remove the animal for care. Sevenoaks security called police early last week and provided APD with surveillance video of the incident Wednesday. A preliminary viewing of the tape by the mall’s security reportedly showed one youth hitting the goose with a long object while two or three others threw things at the creature who wouldn’t abandon her nest, said MacDonald. Elizabeth Melnick, who runs the

wildlife rescue centre, said Monday the bird continued to care for her eggs despite her injuries, and Sunday afternoon yielded a happy ending. Some of the four eggs in the nest hatched, and the mall’s security team escorted the goose, her mate and their goslings by foot through traffic to Mill Lake, said Melnick. The geese make up one of about seven nesting pairs that return each year to the parkade. see GOOSE, page A18

bbotsford citizens and police banded together to rescue four young women from a car that flipped into a water-filled ditch after a crash on Sumas Way early Sunday. A Pontiac G5 headed north on Sumas Way was T-boned by a Dodge Ram truck that ran a red light at the Vye Road intersection just after midnight, said Const. Ian MacDonald. The force of the crash knocked the compact car onto its roof into a ditch on the northwest side of Sumas Way, trapping the young women, aged 19 to 21 years old, inside, said MacDonald. “There was a enough water to half fill the car’s interior,” he said. Officers and passing drivers then leapt into the ditch and righted the vehicle.

“Fifteen people jumped into the ditch and through brute strength pushed the vehicle onto its wheels, and then helped extract the women,” MacDonald said, adding the rescuers were heroes. “Jumping into a water-filled ditch with a large vehicle that could shift as you’re trying to right it . . . there’s a high risk of injury,” he said. A 21-year-old woman was airlifted to Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster with suspected head and back injuries, and is reported to be in serious but stable condition. Two other crash victims were taken to Abbotsford Regional Hospital. Police will recommend charges of impaired driving causing bodily harm against the 26-year-old woman driver of the Dodge truck, said MacDonald. Neither she nor her two passengers were injured in the crash.

OPCC to investigate allegations Caribbean + New York of police abuse against homeless Top Value! 11 nights Caribbean cruise + 3 nights to enjoy Manhattan!

ROCHELLE BAKER RBaker@abbotsfordtimes.com

A

bbotsford Police have asked the police watchdog to oversee an investigation into whether APD officers destroyed and or pepper sprayed the tents of homeless people. Treatment of the homeless in Abbotsford came under scrutiny after the city dumped chicken manure on a homeless camp on June 4. Last Wednesday, homeless advocate and pastor Ward Draper of 5 & 2 Ministries told Abbotsford Police during the city’s social development advisory committee meeting that he’s heard stories about officers slashing tents and pepper spraying people’s belongings to drive them from makeshift camps. The APD is concerned about the allegations and doesn’t authorize or condone officers damaging personal property, said Const. Ian MacDonald. On Friday APD Chief Bob

Rich asked the Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner (OPCC) to oversee and review an investigation into the matter. Officers are not allowed to destroy anyone’s property unless it’s an exceptional situation, such as a rescue or an authorized raid by the emergency response team, said MacDonald. “There are exceptions to the rule . . . usually exigent circumstances, but none of those fit the scenario described in this case,” said MacDonald. The objective of the investigation is to determine the validity of the complaint and, if necessary, to hold accountable any APD officers involved, he added. The time frame in which the alleged complaints took place isn’t clear, he said. “We’re hoping our professional standards section investigators will be able to piece that together, and we’ll also be talking to 5&2 Ministries,” said MacDonald.

APD policy in dealing with the homeless is the same as with any individual in the community, said MacDonald. “The policy is not dramatically different than when we deal with anyone and need to apply the law,” he said. “One tool we bring along with us is compassion.” Police have acted as part of a co-ordinated team, which also involves community outreach workers and social agencies and the city, to deal with larger homeless camps in public places like parks, he said. “In Jubilee Park a couple years ago, we were involved in a co-ordinated effort that engaged people with services to ensure it wasn’t just us going in one day and displacing them,” said MacDonald. The APD’s professional standards officers would like to speak to anyone with information about the allegations and can be reached by calling 604-859-5225 or texting 222973 (abbypd).

Revisiting site produces tearful reunion HERO, from page A1 While Cunningham was checking out the fire site Monday, Elderic Furlotte came by to try and find his buddy Richard or “Rickter,” who had been living in the camp. Furlotte shook Cunningham’s hand in gratitude for saving Rickter before taking him to a nearby garage to meet the man he’d saved. On seeing Rickter safe, Furlotte gave his friend a big hug. “We love you very much buddy,” he said with tears in his eyes. Then Furlotte embraced Cunningham in thanks again while Rickter grasped his rescuer’s hand. “Thank you for saving my friend’s life,” said Furlotte. “James you’re a very special person.” Cunningham was pleased

“And yet we need to have the deputy chief of staff make more than that here in B.C.?” he said. Simon Gibson, the MLA for Abbotsford-Mission who was recently assigned to the Treasury Board, said members of the public have “expressed their concerns to me.” “The optics of this have been critical.

No lack of issues for the new guy

C

hicken ‘dump-lings’, pride parades, bureaucratic raises – wow, I arrived a couple of weeks late, didn’t I? Clearly, there will be no lack of topics to dabble into for my regular “Commen-Terry” column. Hello, Abbotsford. Let’s get to know each other. First, me. As of today’s issue. I am the editor of the Abbotsford Times. This is my second stint in British Columbia since delving into the newspaper business, although I am a born and raised Albertan. My first foray into the B.C. life was a five-year tenure in Campbell River, where I was forever battling the “red-neck Albertan” stereotype. Based on the way the City of Abbotsford deals with the homeless, that shouldn’t be a problem here. Chicken manure? Really? It sounds like something a certain legendary Alberta premier and former mayor of Calgary would have pulled. (Not to mention any names, but his initials were RK.) It might even be beyond his political paradigm. (He’d have probably just offered them all free ferry tickets to the Island.) And while I have hear a lot of backlash about the incident, there are still many questions left unanswered, for instance, the cost of the endeavour. Based on my experience with city workers, I would estimate that the task took at least four workers and, again, just an estimate, but all told, at least 30 man hours. Then there’s the price of

TERRY FARRELL

COMMENTERRY the product itself. Crap doesn’t come cheaply nowadays. It all adds up to be an expensive day in the inner city for the taxpayers, but I suppose it’s no worse than balancing a professional hockey team’s annual budget. Ironically, this entire embarrassing incident could result in better relations between the city and its homeless residents, and if that’s the case, then, in a warped sense, it would be money well spent. The recent letters to the Times regarding the pride parade indicate that, like any city, there are prejudices and misinformed opinions galore in Abbotsford. Here’s a thought on that: Don’t preach to me the biblical references against homosexuality if you have a tattoo on your forearm. You are, according to the same book of the Bible, just as big a sinner. Don’t preach to me the sanctity of marriage when you are on your third wife. Don’t join me for a beer on the patio and tell me how marijuana should never be legalized. I am brash, blunt and opinionated, which some would say are the only attributes necessary to sit at an editor’s desk.

From a professional standpoint, I am a stickler for detail, a perfectionist, and will go to the wall for my staff. If it’s in my paper, it has my approval. From a personal angle, I do not tolerate intolerance. We will get to know each other quite well once I settle into my new home. I plan on being here for the duration. Love me or hate me, it’s all good. Just read me and I am happy. As for the community, while I hope to make a positive contribution, when it is all said and done, my work is just words on a page. The real bonus for Abbotsford and the Fraser Valley will be the arrival of my wife, Erica – an award-winning pediatric physiotherapist who makes a tangible difference in every life she touches. The challenges faced by Erica and those in her profession make mine pale in comparison. Coming from Grande Prairie, where the average winter boasts 20-30 days of temperatures in the minus 30s or worse, and the mosquitoes threaten to carry away small children in the summer, we consider ourselves lucky to be moving to the Lower Mainland. I am looking forward to golfing in January. Erica is looking forward to day trips to the ocean. We both look forward to never plugging in a vehicle again. And, above all else, we look forward to being a positive addition to the city and the community.

hile many of our fellow citizens labouring with disabilities do very well for themselves, it’s pretty safe to say that people who require wheelchairs to get around on a day-to-day basis are likely disadvantaged when it comes to earning a regular income. Consequently, extensive support systems have been put in place to help people whose disabilities make them dependent on wheelchairs to deal with the barriers thrown in front of them by their lot in life. Some of those barriers are physical, accessibility issues while others are societal: some people just don’t get that those among us who need our help deserve it, by dint of the fact that a disability, whether physical or otherwise, does not diminish a person’s humanity. Many people with disabilities freely offer that their greatest barriers are often those thrown up by false impressions born of ignorance. They’re not looking for sympathy – just a bit of human understanding. How ignorant can people be about the barriers that face the disabled? Let’s ask the folks at Fraser Health Authority who decided to burden wheelchair users in their facilities with $25 a month “maintenance” fees. To add insult to injury, 60 per cent of clients in affected facilities depend on wheelchairs, many donated and not even provided by FHA. Let’s ask the provincial government that passed legislation last fall to allow this travesty – that same government has now boosted its top-earning bureaucrats’ salaries, each to the tune of $35,000 per year. Just three of those raises total more than the $100,000 that the FHA expects to take away from its disabled clients. It is astounding that the one place our disabled brethren should never have to want for understanding has now thrown up yet another barrier for wheelchair users. ■ To comment on this editorial, e-mail us at letters@abbotsfordtimes.com.

LETTERS

THE TIMES TUESDAY, JUNE 18, 2013 ❘

As the owner of the Willows apartment building that burned down on May 17, 2013, and on behalf of the tenants, I would like to say a huge and heartfelt ‘Thank You’ to all of you. Thank you to the firemen who first responded to the site, using your firefighting skills to successfully get all of the tenants (and their pets) safely out of the burning building. Thank you Larry and your team. Thank you to all the caring neighbours who came forward to offer blankets and hot chocolate at 3:30 a.m. To the community leaders such as the provincial Emergency Social Services, Hope Central, Victim Services, Salvation Army, Red Cross, the post office on 1st Ave, Mission Community Services, SPCA, RCMP, Abbotsford/Mission Times, Mission Record, Ministry of Social Development, District of Mission, etc., thank you, everyone! To building owner Kenny W., who let me use his building as a place to keep donated supplies, which amounted to a mountain of goods. The donation of towels, clothing, and tooth brushes, etc., was so great that eventually we had more than enough and had to discontinue the call for help. How wonderful! It was devastating for my tenants to lose everything that they had, most of whom had so little to start with. However, the support of this and surrounding communities has made a profound difference in the lives of many. The tenants really do appreciate all they were given and wanted me to express their gratitude. Thank you, donors! Currently, everyone has found a place to rent or stay. Once they had a residence, they were thrilled to pick from the donations to set up their new home. Despite this tragedy, it has been a privilege to witness such genuine generosity to those less fortunate. It was wonderful to personally see the joy it brought to those who gave and those who received. Steve Yap Mission

Mayor & others should walk in their shoes Editor, the Times:

Re: Times, June 11 Mayor apologizes to homeless To Abbotsford mayor and city council: I am deeply saddened at your decision to abuse your authority and power and bully a camp of human beings who are struggling to

The homeless you have chosen to reject are a part of your community, that very community each of you promised to help and support as our leaders. Each of you were elected into power to do good and help those who are hurting. Your poor decision to dump chicken manure on our homeless population only reinforces the lack of empathy and compassion for our most vulnerable. Please educate me on how much a truck load of chicken manure goes for these days? Couldn’t that money have been put to better use? City workers’ time needed elsewhere? One can only speculate as to the level of conversation required to even suggest this solution for the lack of affordable housing. Bravo to all of you for once again reminding us that if you’re homeless, drug addicted or suffer from mental health, there is no place in society for you. Tammy Goertzen Abbotsford

Reader is ashamed of Abbotsford Editor, the Times: As a former resident of Abbotsford, I am deeply ashamed of my hometown. At a time when other municipalities, like the Waterloo Region in Ontario, where I now call home, are investing in affordable supportive housing, the City of Abbotsford sees fit to pour chicken manure on the one stretch of land where someone unfortunate enough to need a safe place to lay their head, can do so. When people ask me “Why on earth did you move to Ontario from British Columbia?” I now reply – “You know the community so stuck in the past that it outlaws effective harm reduction methods of addictions management, the one that pours chicken sh*t on their homeless people? “Yeah. That’s why.” Peter Thurley, Kitchener, Ont.

This treatment of homeless is bullying Editor, the Times:

I wonder what kind of dirty perverted mind would do this to fellow human beings. Is this the kind of people we want running our city? All those involved should

be fired and any monies owed should be used to clean up the mess. Destroying the homeless [people’s] possessions is another act of bullying and an overuse of power. These people need help, not abuse. Regardless of how they reached this point in their lives, throwing feces in their place of residence is the most disgusting, humiliating thing that could happen to anyone. That cannot be undone. They are not trash. With a church on every corner I would have assumed there would have been some sort of help, or is the Christian [bible] belt just for show? Instead of a YMCA, perhaps we could really do something for our city. Tom Lester Abbotsford

the Biblical perspective in the singular is misleading. For example, what was the name of the mountain where Moses received the Ten Commandments? Was it Horeb, or Sinai? Was Bethlehem Jesus’ hometown, or did his parents go there for a census? To discern the will of God, therefore, one must consider the Biblical witness as a whole. When in doubt, I look to the stories about Jesus, who was always including, in love, all who were persecuted and pushed to the margins. I would expect God, and Jesus, to celebrate the love of consenting adults, not condemn it. If Jesus were alive today, I think He would call both sides to repent of their name-calling, join in the pride parade, and then start organizing a parade for the next marginalized group. Rev. Tim Bowman St. Andrew’s United Church, Mission

Big shakeup needed at City Hall

Parade people really just want attention

Editor, the Times:

Editor, the Times:

There are a few things that Abbotsford has done that make me scratch my head. I moved here with my business only to be told I can’t bring my work truck home because it’s a rig. Now I read about the proposed change to the propane cannon bylaw. And how this city treats people that don’t, for their own reasons, choose to live in a house, by spreading chicken manure. I think we need a big shake up at City Hall. Maybe we should all for the next election vote the city council off. I still choose to live here and raise my family but I am getting disgusted by the attitude of ‘not in my back yard.’ Byron Talbot Abbotsford

Re: Times, June 4 letters Excuse me for being ignorant but why is it so necessary to have an LGBTQ parade? I understand Santa Claus parades, Canada Day parades, even championship parades simply because it involves having fun as a community where everybody gets into the spirit of the moment. What are you celebrating? And when was your moment? Think hard before you start with the name calling and rants about intolerance and bigotry because those terms work on both sides. What makes yourselves so special? Don’t you realize that by having parades about what you are, you are actually segregating yourselves from the rest? And you want to be accepted? Sure, and by which term do you wish acceptance, what you are or who you are? Would you like to be introduced as William, my gay friend or just as my friend Bill? Why is it so important to tell everyone your sexual preference? Do you honestly think anyone cares? Maybe that’s it . . . no one cares how special you are. Now I think I’m starting to get it. That’s why you parade . . . attention. I figure you just want to be seen, or make a scene. You know, the “hey, look at me” thing? So you’re gay, lesbian or queer. Big deal. I’m heterosexual, let’s have a parade! Rene Hamelin Abbotsford

Jesus would stand up for all citizens Editor, the Times:

Re: Times, June 4 No more pride parades please I am grateful to Mr. Crommelin and others for sharing their views on the Pride parade. I am glad that there is space for religious perspectives, alongside others, in the public discourse. However, I would like to offer a different Christian perspective. While some condemn homosexuality as sinful, usually pointing to the Bible, I would point out that the Bible is in fact the collected testimony of many different people to the work of God in their lives and the world, and so to speak of

Suspect charged in string of F.V. armed robberies ROCHELLE BAKER RBaker@abbotsfordtimes.com

A

Chilliwack man suspected of committing four armed robberies within 10 days in Abbotsford and Chilliwack was charged and scheduled to appear in court yesterday. Christopher Olson, 38, faces four counts of robbery and four counts of using an imitation firearm in connection with a string of crimes. Abbotsford police and the RCMP emergency response team arrested Olson on Wednesday morning in the 30800 block of Peardonville Road, at the corner of Queen Street.

Olson’s alleged crime spree began when the Shell Gas Station on Vedder Road in Chilliwack was robbed on May 24, according to the Abbotsford Police Department. This was followed by robberies of the Whatcom Wine and Spirits store on May 26, the Abbotsford Bank of Montreal on June 1 and the Mt. Lehman Liquor Store on June 3. All four robberies involved what appeared to be handgun and the use of a disguise. In the Abbotsford robberies, the suspect wore a baseball cap and thick-framed glasses or sunglasses. No one was injured in any of the incidents.

Helpful tips for summer sleeps S ummer’s here – the sun is shining and you may be feeling restless and unable to sleep. Lack of sleep can often come upon us when the seasons shift. The heat and humidity of warmer months can make it difficult for some to sleep, especially for people who don’t have air conditioning. Canadian physicians recognize the importance of a good night’s sleep. One way to improve your sleep is to maintain a cool bedroom temperature. Here are some other useful tips:

• Program your body Daily exercise and a consistent routine of going to bed and waking up at the same time will help program your body to wind down when it’s time to sleep. Calming activities such as leisure reading will also help you relax and ease the transi-

with our bodies’ naturallyprogrammed sleep patterns. In other words, computers, cell phones and work assignments should be out of sight.

• Have a back-up plan.

Getting a good night’s sleep in the summer months is an ongoing challenge for many people. tion into deeper sleep.

• Create the setting Dim the lights in the evening to tell your body bedtime is approaching and sleep in a dark room. Your bedroom should be a sanctuary from all the stress-

es of the day. Keep it cool, quiet and free from distractions. Scientists are now contemplating how prolonged exposure to artificial light – such as that emitted by computers, televisions and other electronics – might interfere

Lessen the pressures of trying to fall asleep by selecting a calming activity that’s right for you. If you’re not sleepy, simply get out of bed and do something relaxing in dim light. Return to bed only when you are sleepy.

• Talk to the doc Sometimes lifestyle and behavioural changes are not enough to correct the issue. A variety of over-the-counter medications are available to treat occasional sleeplessness. For more tips on getting a better night sleep, visit www.zzzquil.ca. – NEWS CANADA

Buy brand name meds without paying the premium price

D

o you want to re m a i n o n y o u r brand name medication, but have heard it’s going to cost you more money? Many Canadians have benefited from a program allowing them to choose to remain on their brand name medicines at generic prices. Last year, Canadians who used the RxHelp Patient Choice card to purchase their brand name medicines saved $50 million. More than 1.2 million prescriptions were filled using the card – a new tool that allows you to choose to remain on your brand name medicines while paying lower generic prices. Here are three steps to save you money on your

brand name medicine: 1. Get a valid prescription from your doctor. 2. Pick up a RxHelp card – directly from your doctor; or – visit www.RxHelp.ca or call 1-866-RxHelp4 (1-866794-3574) to have one sent to you via mail; or – download and print a RxHelp Patient Choice card from www.RxHelp. ca 3. Present the pres c r i p t i o n a n d R x He l p Patient Choice card at any Canadian pharmacy and request your brand name medicine. Cards are issued free of charge. There are no hidden fees, no monthly charges and patient privacy is protected. – NEWS CANADA

Family support essential to recovery from stroke

M

ore Canadians are surviving strokes due to advances in awareness and medical services, but a new report by the Heart and Stroke Foundation reveals that more than one-third of Canadians mistakenly believe that the recovery period is limited to a few months. Stroke recovery is a journey that can continue for years or a lifetime, according to the Heart and Stroke Foundation 2013 Stroke Report, which outlines the importance of family caregivers in the process. A poll carried out for the report reveals that half of Canadians are directly touched by stroke and even more striking, that one in five Canadians have been involved in the support and care of a stroke survivor. “Our poll confirmed what we have long suspected – that stroke touches the lives of many Canadians, and family members and friends play an important role in the recovery journey,” says Ian Joiner, HSF director. “Obviously the best story is when a stroke is prevented, but we need to pay more attention to every aspect of stroke – prevention, recognition, treatment, and rehabilitation and recovery.”

Staggering numbers Fifty thousand strokes occur in Canada each year and 315,000 Canadians are living with the effects of stroke. As the population continues to age this number will increase – as will the number of Canadians caring for loved ones post-stroke. Now, 60 per cent of people who have a stroke report they need help afterwards and 80 per cent have restrictions to their daily activities. The economic cost is high; stroke costs the Canadian economy $3.6 billion a year in physician services, hospital costs, lost wages and decreased productivity. Rehabilitation and caregiver support are essential in the stroke recovery journey. Rehabilitation is a key part of the stroke recovery journey and rehabilitation research and enhancements to services and access will be more important than ever. “We need rehabilitation research to better understand the difficulties someone is having after a stroke and then develop the treatments to help them get better,” says Dr. Sean

Dukelow, a physiatrist at the Hotchkiss Brain Institute Faculty of Medicine, an assistant professor at the University of Calgary and a HSF-funded researcher who uses robotics to help stroke survivors recover. “We use a robotic model – a large robotic chair – that helps measure a patient’s improvement over time and helps deliver therapy. It can require tens of thousands of repetitions of a particular movement to relearn how to do it after stroke and the robot can help us determine the type and intensity of the rehabilitation needed for a patient to relearn how to use his arm. We can use this information and turn that into a plan to treat the patient more effectively.” The role relatives or close friends of stroke survivors play is essential to the recovery journey. They help survivors relearn routine activities, regain abilities, cope with challenges and frustrations and do things the survivors cannot do for themselves. They also become navigators of the healthcare system and advocates for services and follow-up.

Not limited to the elderly “After my stroke, my mom was my rock,” says Janel Nadeau, a stroke survivor who suffered a hemorrhagic stroke at 19 and has gone on to become a doctor. “She was my advocate. She was my communicator. I knew that I did not have to worry about what was going on outside of my little bubble, because my mom would take care of it so I could focus simply on recovering.“ Other results from the Heart and Stroke Foundation poll reveal that not all Canadians have a clear picture of how strokes can be prevented. According to the poll, less than two-thirds of Canadians are aware that most strokes can be prevented and nearly one in six believe that once a person has recovered from a stroke there is nothing they can do to prevent another one. And the fact is that up to 80 per cent of premature heart disease and stroke can be prevented.

Advances mean hope The story of stroke is not over. Stroke is preventable. Stroke is treatable. And recovery from stroke is possible.

For stroke survivors and their loved ones, continued advances in rehabilitation and recovery mean real hope for a better future.

There is life after stroke. For the full HSF report, visit heartandstroke.ca/strokereport2013.

There are risks associated with some pain relievers. Opioids, for example, may be highly addictive, while gastrointestinal bleeding has been reported with use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), and high doses of acetaminophen can lead to liver toxicity. There are other treatments, however, that

But for the 10 per cent of Canadians that The Arthritis Society says are living with osteoarthritis (OA), enjoying the warm weather isn’t always easy. Activities such as biking, golfing and gardening, for example, may be a challenge if they are suffering with chronic knee pain. “Working with a doctor to develop an individualized treatment plan can help patients with knee OA better manage their pain, so they can reconnect with their lives,” says rheumatologist Dr. Philip Baer. While there are a number of medications available to reduce the pain and discomfort associated with osteoarthritis of the knee, it’s important to ensure that pain is managed in the safest way possible.

ECM Strata Management – ARLEN REDEKOP/VANCOUVER SUN/FOR THE TIMES

Abbotsford’s Nick Taylor lost in a playoff in the Vancouver Open at Fraserview Golf Course Saturday. Three golfers went to the extra hole after shooting 68s in the final round, to tie at 14 under par after 54 holes. Taylor picked up $5,750 for the second-place tie.

Y

ou can’t win them all, although Abbotsford’s Nick Taylor has certainly tried this spring on the Vancouver Golf Tour. Taylor came close to continuing a magical run on the weekend when he lost in a playoff in the VGT’s flagship event, the Saputo Vancouver Open, at Fraserview. Chris Epperson of Hilton Head, S.C., beat Taylor and another former B.C. Junior champion, Riley Wheeldon of Comox, in a playoff to claim the $12,000 first prize. All three players shot four-under 68s in the final round and were at 14-under par after 54 holes. It was the third straight year the Vancouver Open, which is contested on the three City of Vancouver courses, has gone to a playoff. It took only one extra hole to find a winner. Taylor’s chances came undone on his second shot on Fraserview’s 520-yard

par 5 18th hole. With about 245 yards to the pin and a hazard to carry, Taylor leaned on a hybrid and pulled it left. His ball bounced into some thick bush. “I hit it a bit off the toe, but I thought it was fine,” a disappointed Taylor said. “I had to try to make birdie and I wasn’t going to drop it.” Taylor hacked the ball out of the bush, but it came up short and his pitch for birdie sailed past the cup. That pretty much ended the day for Taylor, who earlier this spring won five straight VGT events. Epperson’s two-putt for birdie gave him a win the 30-year-old called the biggest of his career. Epperson, Taylor and Wheeldon were all coming off nice finishes at last week’s inaugural PGA Tour Canada event in Victoria. Wheeldon finished third at Uplands in the Times Colonist Island Savings Open, Taylor tied for fourth and Epperson tied for eighth. Taylor was the first to post 14-under Saturday when he birdied the 18th hole. Epperson and Wheeldon, playing in the final group, followed with birdies of their own. Wheeldon almost won it in regulation when he lipped out a nine-foot putt for eagle on the final hole. “I had a chance on 18 to end it in regu-

lation and it just lipped out,” Wheeldon said. “I thought I’d made it. But any time you can get into contention is a positive. I’ll be back again.” Taylor steadied himself after bogeying his first hole and double-bogeying the third. He eagled the par 5 12th hole to get back into the hunt. “I actually hit it pretty well the last three days, better than I did in Victoria,” he said. “I made a couple of stupid errors. I bogeyed one and doubled three so to be able to be in a playoff after being two-over early was good. I am playing well, but the finish was unfortunate.” Epperson knew he didn’t have the crowd on his side as he began the playoff against a pair of B.C. boys. “You can’t ever feel guilty about a win,” he said with a laugh, “Especially your first big one.” It was a crowded leaderboard all day. First round co-leaders Brad Clapp of Chilliwack and Clark MacPherson of Surrey tied for fourth. Taylor and Wheeldon each earned $5,750 for their second-place finish. Taylor also earned a $3,500 bonus for winning the VGT’s six-event “major series.” Taylor, Wheeldon and Epperson are all scheduled to play in this week’s PGA Tour Canada event in Calgary.

Hadwin out after two stormy rounds in U.S. Open A

dam Hadwin of Abbotsford missed the cut in the 113th U.S. Open Golf Championship at Merion Golf Course in Ardmore, Pa., last weekend. The Open was won by Justin Rose, who shot a one over

281 to win by two strokes over Jason Day and Phil Mickelson. Tiger Woods finished the tournament +13 for 293 in a nine-way tie for 32nd place. Ha d w i n w a s e v e n p a r after six holes, before violent

storms in the Midwest cancelled play on Thursday. Hadwin ended the first two rounds with an 81 and 76 for 157. He was just one behind Jose Maria Olazabal and Jim Furyk, among others, who also missed the cut.

Hadwin hopes to rebound on Thursday when he hits the links for the Rex Hospital Open in Raleigh, N.C., with a purse of $625,000 up for grabs. – JEAN KONDA-WITTE
