$60,000 awarded to local projects supporting agricultural innovation in Abbotsford.

We’re excited to announce the recipients of this year’s Agriculture Enhancement Grants! This year, ACF hosted our annual cheque ceremony in the courtyard of the Gur Sikh Temple, a national historic site and the oldest existing gurdwara in Canada. We are so grateful to the Khalsa Diwan Society for sharing this space with ACF for this year’s event.

ACF awarded a total of $60,000 to support of 2 projects supporting agricultural innovation in Abbotsford. Thanks to ACF’s partnership with the City of Abbotsford, the following initiatives are receiving an ACF Agricultural Enhancement Grant this year:

• BC Chicken Growers AssociaBon - Poultry in MoBon Trailer & Website Enhancement The Poultry in MoBon Trailer Enhancement project is advancing Agri-EducaBon by integraBng state-of-the-art tech to adapt their trailer to deliver immersive virtual experiences to schools, fairs, and public events. They also wish to expand their website's mulBlingual capabiliBes to reflect Abbotsford’s mulBcultural diversity.

• University of the Fraser Valley’s Food & Agriculture InsBtute - Agritech Pitch Toolkit Project This toolkit will be tailored to the specific needs of the agricultural industry in the Fraser Valley, which is smaller scale and more intensive than the agriculture found in innovaBon hotbeds

such a Guelph and Calgary, requiring regionally specific approaches to solving problems. This project will directly support the creaBon of a local and regional agricultural innovation ecosystem by networking local entrepreneurs and stakeholders with interested venture capitalists and mentors.

Pictured above: Satwinder Bains, ACF Board Chair & Agriculture Grants Commidee member, Mayor Ross Siemens, along with this year’s Agriculture Enhancement Grant recipients.

New Beginnings Young Parent Program Graduates Thank Community Partners

On Friday, May 24th, the New Beginnings Young Parent Program participants gathered to thank the community partners who helped them graduate at the annual Thank You Tea.

Since the program began in 1990, more than 1000 parents have graduated high school. There were seven graduates in this year’s class. New Beginnings is a partnership between the Abbotsford School District, Ministry of Children and Family Development, and Archway Community Services.

“Young parents can face multiple challenges in completing their education, while raising small children. The parents at New Beginnings continue to amaze me with their dedication and perseverance to complete their education and provide a better future for their children,” said Maria Cargnelli, the Associate Director of Early Years and Counselling programs at Archway. “We’re so proud of them and are cheering them on as they step into the next chapter of their lives.”

A highlight of the event is the presentation of quilts for the graduates’ children donated by the Abbotsford Quilters Guild. “The quilts are an amazing way to commemorate the students’ time here at New Begin-

nings. The amount of work that has gone into each quilt does not go unnoticed and truly we are so grateful to be connected to the Abbotsford Quilters Guild,” says Bailey Rowan, Parent Support Worker at New Beginnings. “Thank you to each person who helps create these works of art.”

“We’d also like to thank the Abbotsford Quilters Guild who provided one of the graduates with a $500 scholarship at the event to attend the British Columbia Institute of Technology’s (BCIT) cabinetry program.” The event was attended by officials from the Abbotsford School District, including School Board Trustees Korky Neufeld, Stan Petersen, Jared White, and Rupi Kanda-Rajwan, as well as the Vice Principal of Bakerview Centre for Learning, Dan Village. Representatives from the Ministry of Children and Family Development, Fraser Health, the Abbotsford Quilters Guild and Archway Community Services were also in attendance.

New Beginnings provides flexible part-time and full-time programs for parents to complete or upgrade their high school education. Students have access to high-quality on-site childcare, parenting courses, an on-site satellite Archway Food Bank and individual supports.

The Reach invites expressions of interest for a community loan of mural featured in Des Pardes

Des Pardes, The Reach Gallery Museum’s groundbreaking exhibition, will be closing on June 15th but its digital content - archival and photographic collections and individual storiesdeveloped through community consultation will remain accessible in a legacy website currently under development.

Welcoming visitors to the exhibition is a mural by acclaimed artist, Sandeep Johal, created specifically for Des Pardes. Titled Motherland –Mother Hand, the mural is a collaborative effort that combines design and concept ideas from six South Asian Canadian women from Abbotsford, and captures the historical and contemporary resilience, strength, and nurturing spirit of women. It fuses their distinct voices and champions the profound significance of women in the cultural tapestry of South Asian Canadian communities. The mural was painted on wood panels and has an overall measurement of eight feet high by twelve feet long.

Rather than see Motherland – Mother Hand placed into storage at the end of the exhibition, The Reach is inviting expressions of interest from local organizations that may wish to

participate in a long-term display loan that will allow the community to continue to enjoy and learn from the striking and meaningful artwork.

Eligible institutions include museums, galleries, libraries, educational facilities, and community, cultural and religious centres with a publicly accessible venue. For more information contact The Reach: info@thereach.ca. Des Pardes focuses on the rich history and bold contemporary culture of the local South Asian Canadian community, captures the histories, personal accounts, and creative talents of more than 100 contributors, resulting in a first-of-its-kind, communityengaged exhibition. There’s still time to see to see the exhibition which closes on June 15.

Canadian Economy has a Major Productivity Problem:

ICBA Construction Monitor Weak research and development investment – largely caused by high taxation and government policies seemingly designed to discourage investment and innovation – is causing sluggish productivity growth, says the June 2024 edition of The Construction Monitor, published by the Independent Contractors and Businesses Association (ICBA) today. Up until 2000, Canada achieved productivity growth rates above or roughly comparable to those in the U.S., but the country has been consistently falling behind since then.

“We are witnessing Canada’s long, slow decline. On productivity growth and many other measures of well-being and competitiveness, Canada is coming up short among its global peers,” wrote ICBA President Chris Gardner in his introduction to The Construction Monitor. “Why does productivity matter? Because the more Canadian firms innovate, the more they spend on upskilling their people and on adopting new technology, the more profitable they are and the more they can increase the size of paycheques for workers.”

2024 Ford Mustang Coupe

- Still Delivers Muscle Car Thrills!

New for 2024, the Ford Mustang is now in its seventh generation and returns with some tweaking to the styling but is still instantly recognizable as a ‘Stang”. The subtle look is cleaner, more aerodynamic, and subtle and gives a nod to the firstgeneration model with its new grille design and the rear signature tribar lighting. The Ecoboost and V8 powered GT models have their own unique front ends.

The GT has a more aggressive look and has new hood vents and redesigned front splitters. There is a new range of alloy wheels from 17-inch in standard size to 19-inchers for the GT, and with optional 20- inch wheels. Interior wise, there is a “fighter-jet-inspired” cockpit offering two curved displays that can be driver customized. The new, 2024 Mustang is available in fastback and convertible form.

When it comes to engine choice, the top dog motor is the fourth-generation 5.0-litre Coyote V8 gasoline unit with 480 - 486 horsepower.

Changes include an active valve exhaust, new dual air-intake box, and a dual-throttle body design, which helps minimize engine induction loss.

Buyers who want greater fuel efficiency can opt for the EcoBoost model, powered by a new 315-hp turbocharged 2.3L four-cylinder engine mated to the 10-speed automatic transmission.

Talking about transmissions - the 5.0 V8 GT version does have an optional manual transmission — a standard six-speed with a rev-matching fea-

ture that helps hold engine rpm when the clutch is engaged, offering peak torque between gear changes. The 10-speed automatic gearbox is also available with configurable drive modes. Meanwhile the high-performance Mustang Dark Horse version has 500 hp and 418 lb-ft of torque.

New interior highlights include the Jet fighter style dashboard with twin digital instrument cluster that can be optionally configured to flow into a 13.2-inch Sync 4 centre stack behind a single integrated glass panel. Physical hard touch buttons and knobs for such features as radio and climate controls, have been deleted. The 12.4-inch digital instrument cluster is customizable to display different animated designs and new drive-mode visuals with video game like graphics. n terms of safety the Mustang comes equipped with Ford Co-Pilot360 and the full roster of active and passive safety aids.

Standard equipment levels are high and there is a range of options and upgrades. Mustang GT and EcoBoost models are both available with an optional Performance Pack, which adds features such as: a front tower brace, Torsen limited-slip differential and optional MagneRide active suspension, and wider rear wheels. Larger front and rear Brembo brakes are also added. The GT Performance Pack also adds brake ducts for better more cooling, along with an as standard auxiliary engine oil cooler. Recaro seats and active exhaust are also offered.

boost engine with 315 Horsepower and the ten -speed auto transmission. Priced at a base $42,000, our tester added the Premium package with a 3.15 ratio limited slip axle, 19-inch wheels and tire package, Premium B & O 12 speaker sound system and the Mustang

Nite Pony package with ebony, black-painted alloys, black spoiler and black painted roof. The active valve performance exhaust by the way makes all the right noises. The final total with options and delivery rang in at $52,090.

On the road, whatever model you drive, be assured of total fun. The Mustang is a comfortable urban cruiser, while adjustable drive modes can offer quicker steering, more engine response, and faster transmission shifts. There is electronic stability control settings and six available drive modes — Normal, Sport, Slippery, Drag, Track, as well as a customizable setting with up to six driver profiles. The Four-cylinder EcoBoost version is a hoot to drive

with a tight balanced engine and transmission combo. Handling is precise and light. The V8 powered GT is the one to get if you can make the financial reach, but the 2.3 four cylinder however is still impressive in both its 315 Horsepower and fuel economy figures at L/100km - 9.2 combined. 10.8 City. 7.1 Highway.

The 10-speed auto transmission offers quick satisfying shifts and acceleration. Suspension and handling upgrades really elevate the performance driving aspect. Downsides are few, there is till some hard plain looking interior plastic trim around in the base models and the V8 is thirsty.

I do however recommend the Ecoboost models as the star in the lineup the four-cylinder engine offer s excellent horsepower and performance for the money. In terms of bang for your buck the 2024 Mustang is one of the most affordable and best value money sports cars on the market.

Number one in its class! 2024 Ford Mustang priced from $37,000$60,000.

Top tips to keep cool in the heat

(NC) Heat waves, with their hot temperatures and often high humidity, can harm your health and can even be deadly. To help you stay healthy, here are some tips from Health Canada.

Take a break: Plan your outdoor activities for the morning or evening when the temperature is usually a little bit cooler.

If you find yourself in an overheated space, turn on an air conditioner if you have one, or relocate to a cooler location such as a basement, community centre or library.

If you have a window air conditioning unit, using it to cool one room will give you somewhere to go for relief. Using it to cool a larger space won’t be as efficient, and you may still need to seek relief elsewhere.

up. Consider preparing meals by using a microwave or going with cold meals like hearty salads or sandwiches instead.

Use your shade: The sun is a powerful heat source. Did you know that the air can be up to five degrees Celsius cooler in the shade of a tree compared to the surrounding area? Many heat deaths occur indoors, too. To keep cool indoors, consider closing yourcurtains, blinds and shades during the day, and opening windows to let cooler air in.

Avoid the oven: Even if your favourite meals are cooked in the oven, it’s best to swap them out during a heat wave. Your oven heats up your home, and your air conditioner may struggle to keep

Spot trouble: Watch for symptoms of heat illness, which include dizziness or fainting, nausea or vomiting, headache, extreme thirst and rapid breathing and heartbeat. If you experience any of these symptoms, immediately move to a cool place and hydrate. If someone has a high body temperature, has stopped sweating or is confused or unconscious, call 911 immediately because these are signs of heat stroke. Find more information at canada.ca/health.

New, accessible school playgrounds open for students

Extra provincial playground funding for the seventh year means more fun for students and families in modern and safe playgrounds.

“Playgrounds enhance our kids’ wellbeing,” said Rachna Singh, Minister of Education and Child Care. “These are spaces where children can truly be themselves, where they express their joy, and learn valuable social skills. Our government is thrilled to ensure communities throughout the province gain better access to modern playgrounds for everyone’s benefit.”

In 2024, the Province is providing funding for 26 more playgrounds in 26 school districts, each receiving $195,000. This investment in playgrounds promotes physical activity for kids, teaches social skills, such as sharing, and helps them develop life skills, such as conflict resolution. The playgrounds are also designed to be accessible for children of all abilities.

Last year’s provincial investment of $5 million supported 25 new school playgrounds – 20 are complete, while the remaining are close to ready. Building new accessible playgrounds is part of the government’s priority to ensure students have positive learning and play spaces, no matter where they live. Since 2018, the government has supported students and families, allocating $40 million toward new playgrounds at 282 schools, benefiting more than 70,000 students. Every school district has received at least one playground since the program started in 2018. Some schools received funding for multiple playgrounds for the communities to enjoy.

Budget 2024 includes $3.75 billion for school capital projects over the next three years, including new and expanded schools, seismic upgrades and replacements, and land purchases for future schools.

No Flood Mitigation Funding for Abbotsford, Merritt and Princeton

Three BC municipalities devasted by flooding in 2021, along with industry and business leaders are calling on the federal government to change the way it funds climate change disaster prevention after all being turned down for critical flood infrastructure funding through the Disaster Mitigation and Adaptation Fund (DMAF).

The federal government launched the $2 billion DMAF in May 2018, adding an additional $1.375 billion in 2021, all of which is to be allocated over the next 9 years. DMAF is a national, competitive, and merit-based contribution program requiring communities to apply for funding through a competitive applications process.

“It’s absolutely ridiculous,” said Abbotsford Mayor Ross Siemens. “The 2021 flood caused significant damage to our regional and provincial transportation infrastructure, property and businesses, and severely impacted agricultural production in the most productive area of Canada. For the first time in our history, we witnessed a 9-day closure of the key transportation corridor (the TransCanada Highway) through the Fraser Valley, which links Canada’s largest port with the interior and Alberta, and yet through this competitive granting program, we did not make it on the list of federal priorities.”

Across BC, the 2021 atmospheric river event disrupted major railway lines, closed several major highways (some for several months), halted the movement of people, goods and services, resulting in severe disruptions to the Asia Pacific gateway supply chain, closed the US/Canada border, and devastated businesses, farms, residences and distressed residents. In Merritt, for example, this storm necessitated dozens of swift water rescues, and caused the flooding of hundreds of homes, months of lost school days, and hundreds of millions of dollars in destruction, including a bridge collapse, a wastewater treatment plant failure, and extensive private and public property damage.

Post flood, the City of Abbotsford took immediate action to assess and develop a flood prevention and management infrastructure solution that would safeguard the community, residents, and the region’s well-being and economic stability. The City applied for DMAF funding when the grant program opened for applications in the summer last year as encouraged by senior government officials.

The City of Merritt developed a comprehensive Flood Mitigation Plan to support their DMAF application. This plan provides updated river modelling that details that a much greater number of homes are now at risk (1,270 homes are now identified as in the flood zone compared to the 130 homes previously identified in the original Provincial floodplain modelling). The flood protections that Merritt had prior to 2021 are now washed down the river and the city remains extremely vulnerable to future and inevitable flooding. The City of Merritt needs a new dike system plus the funding required to purchase the land under its footprint.

The Town of Princeton hired a consultant to update the municipality’s current flood mitigation plan and embarked on a long-term hydrological model simulation identifying the magnitude of future winter and rain events in the vicinity of the municipality. The plan includes options for future diking projects and relocation of key infrastructure.

However, the competitive DMAF requirements mean that municipalities have to compete for the funding with all other communities across Canada. With limited financial means and expertise, this means smaller municipalities and communities do not always have the resources needed to undertake the lengthy and sometimes costly process of preparing an application that stacks up against other applicants competing for the funding.

“Senior levels of government promised to support us. They told us this was the way to get it,” said Merritt Mayor Michael G. Goetz. “We have shared detailed engineering reports that say the return-on-investment of this design is 7:1. Honestly, if preventing an almost guaranteed future disaster with a project like this doesn’t make the cut, I can’t imagine what projects in Canada will.”

“It’s like hoping to win the lottery,” said Princeton Mayor Spencer Coyne. “Community members lost their homes, key infrastructure was impacted, and the community was devastated. The DMAF funding was key to the flood mitigation and adaptation plan of Princeton, but now we are left vulnerable and trying to find a way to pay for the impacts of global climate change on our own with a population of 3,000 and tens of millions of dollars in costs. Rural BC, no, rural Canada is the economic engine of this country and cannot be forgotten just because we might be small.”

In 2019, the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) recommended that the federal government “reevaluate” the DMAF program’s eligibility criteria so that communities of all sizes could “access critical funding and support”, yet no changes were made.

Abbotsford’s funding application proposed a solution that would ensure the Trans-Canada Highway would remain open, BC’s provincial food supply would be protected, and ensured that the flow of goods and services by truck and train to and from the Port of Vancouver would continue. ing process by which we are forced to compete against each other for these critical dollars needs to change, and it needs to change now.”

Dr. Joanne MacLean, President & Vice Chancellor, University of the Fraser Valley “The devastating 2021 flood had a profound impact on our UFV community, disrupting students' lives and studies as the highway

closure isolated them from our campus. As an institution deeply rooted in the Fraser Valley, we understand the importance of a secure future in agriculture for our students, whose education and careers are linked to the well-being of this region. Investing in flood mitigation is investing in the future of our students and the resilience of our agricultural community. We urge senior government to come forward with funding support to ensure a flooding disaster of this magnitude does not happen again.”

Gurmeen Banipal, President, Fraser Valley Indo-Canadian Business Association "The Fraser Valley Indo-Canadian Business Association stands with the City of Abbotsford, the City of Merritt, and the Town of Princeton in their collaborative efforts to secure essential disaster mitigation funding. The November 2021 floods were the most expensive natural disaster in B.C.’s history and have had a profound impact on the business community in the Fraser Valley. The FVICBA can attest firsthand to the catastrophic impacts that continue to affect our local business communities, economies, and critical infrastructure. This funding is crucial for the long-term flood mitigation plan, which will significantly impact our business communities by providing much-needed security and stability. By investing in extreme weather measures, we can ensure the resilience of our local businesses and protect the economic backbone of our region."

Alex Mitchell, CEO, Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce "The Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce supports the City of Abbotsford's application for long-term infrastructure funding to address flood mitigation in our community. Significant investments are needed to prevent disruptions to supply chains and support the local businesses and farmers that drive Canada's food security should another extreme weather event occur in the future."

Filipino community welcomes historic federal announcement of PR for caregivers as victory of caregivers and families

The federal government's longoverdue decision to grant permanent residency on arrival for caregivers under new pilot programs is incredible news that is the result of decades of advocacy and sacrifice by countless caregivers and their families, says the Pinoy Festival Alliance Society, a local Filipino non-profit organization that works to promote the interests of the Filipino-Canadian community in BC.

"This is an incredible step forward for justice for our community. The majority of caregivers from overseas are from the Philippines and today we recognize their courage to share their stories and relentlessly advocate for their rights," says Liberty Aloha de Vera, Pinoy Festival Alliance Spokesperson and daughter of a former Live-in Caregiver. "For too long, the federal government's caregiver programs tore families apart because

many mothers had to leave behind their own children or elderly parents to take care of someone else's child and parent. I am a walking example of the sad and devastating trauma created by unjust caregiver programs that tore families like mine apart," she said.

There are almost one million Filipino-Canadians across the country with almost 200,000 living in British Columbia. "Today is a day to celebrate. We're also grateful to the caregiver organizations for their advocacy and for supporting us; and to the caregivers and their families for the courage to tell their stories because in doing so - they moved a mountain," concluded Imus, who recognized there is still much work to do to genuinely improve conditions for all migrant workers, especially undocumented ones, that are already here.

New funding for B.C. universities supports advances in health care and more

New funding for one of Canada’s most powerful supercomputers, and the largest research cloud in the country, is supporting cutting-edge research projects in health care, clean energy, neuroscience and climate modelling that will improve people’s lives.

“Our government is investing in B.C. universities to support a range of research bringing about advancements in health care like new heart monitoring technology and artificial intelligence for individually personalized cancer treatments, as well as research that will accelerate

decarbonization pathways and grow B.C.’s hydrogen sector for a cleaner future,” said Brenda Bailey, B.C. Minister of Jobs, Economic Development and Innovation.

“Through the B.C. Knowledge Development Fund (BCKDF), we continue to invest in the research tools needed to secure our province’s place as a global leader in innovation, and to make life better for people.”

The BCKDF, the Government of B.C.’s primary source for capital investment in research infrastructure, is providing more than $30 million to enhance the high-performance

computing infrastructure, also known as supercomputers, at two postsecondary institutions: Simon Fraser University (SFU) and the University of Victoria (UVic). B.C. has two of Canada’s five national supercomputer sites.

“Advanced research computing is a vital tool in the Digital Research Infrastructure Strategy,” said Francois-Philippe Champagne, federal Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry. “Today's announcement will help ensure the researchers are better equipped to optimize research data to generate cutting-edge knowledge and ideas. Expanding the capacity of Canadian supercomputing power ensure that Canada maintains its science and research excellence and remain globally competitive.”

This includes more than $24 million to renew the infrastructure of SFU’s Cedar system, one of the most powerful academic supercomputers in Canada. Cedar provides advanced computing power and storage to fuel research innovation and industry, government and academic collaboration across the country. This funding will support SFU, one of Canada’s five national host sites, to build a new system to replace the existing system, which is nearing end of life. The replacement will match or exceed current storage capacity and compute performance to the benefit of tens of thousands of users across Canada. The Digital Research Alliance of Canada is contributing nearly $41 million to SFU’s Cedar supercomputer.

Cedar is helping SFU engineering science professor Mirza Faisal Beg to capture images of the human body and organ measurements much faster than traditional methods, which could help redefine cancer treatment. With each patient's unique body composition, a personalized treatment plan responsive to both disease and individual traits can lead to improved health outcomes, while minimizing adverse side effects.

UVic, also one of Canada’s five national host sites, has been awarded up to a maximum of $6,141,900 through the BCKDF to renew community cloud infrastructure of the Arbutus system, the largest research cloud in the country. Arbutus has revolutionized how scientists across Canada process, share and store massive data sets. Featuring processing speeds thousands of times faster than a desktop computer, it serves as the cornerstone for more than 1,000 research teams across Canada. The Digital Research Alliance of Canada is contributing more than $10 million to UVic’s Arbutus supercomputer.

Arbutus’s use of artificial intelligence and machine learning to analyze and visualize advanced 3D imaging of the brain is helping determine what causes the brain's immune cells to change drastically and how this affects cognitive function. UVic’s Marie-Ève Tremblay’s globally recognized research is providing a better understanding about learning, memory, behaviour and cognition.

High-performance computers are capable of processing large quantities of data, using artificial intelligence and modelling of complex systems in almost any technology-related sector. The use of these supercomputers helps the economy by driving innovation and supports start-up companies, which leads to potential commercial enterprises. By investing in the Cedar and Arbutus high-performance computers, the Province is ensuring that B.C. continues to attract and retain top academics, researchers, and students.

The BCKDF helps grow the economy by improving B.C.’s productivity and competitiveness, which is a key objective of Clean and Competitive: A Blueprint for B.C.’s Industrial Future. Other benefits include potential commercialization, spinoffs, patents, improved environmental management and discoveries that directly affect the health and wellbeing of people in B.C.
