Mary has been giving back since '76 - Prince George Citizen

Tuesday, April 4, 2017

Mary (MacDonnell) Jarbek was born into a family of 13 in Cape Breton, N.S. in 1949. She moved to Chilliwack where she eventually met and married Andy (Bob) Jarbek who was born and raised in Chilliwack. In 1974, the young couple moved to Nova Scotia. Representatives from the pulp mills in Prince George flew to Nova Scotia and were interviewing people qualified to work in their pulp mills. Andy was a qualified pipe fitter, he had family in the city and he needed work so they moved to Prince George in 1976 with the hope of finding work and to start a new life. Andy was hired at P.G. Pulp the same day that he arrived in Prince George. Mary said, "We were told that Prince George was a vibrant and growing city with great opportunities. We came here with hope and excitement and we were not disappointed. "The second day that we were here I went down town to check out our new city. I happened to walk into the Town Talk Uniform Store (next to Northern Hardware) and found a lady sitting at the counter crying. "To make a long story short, she was the owner of the store, lived in Kamloops and...

Rick Klassen, former BC Lions star, dies of cancer at age 57 - CBC.ca

Thursday, March 9, 2017

Rick Klassen was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2013, and his son says doctors originally said he could live another 10 or 15 years.But his health took a turn for the worse earlier this year.Born in Chilliwack, B.C., Rick Klassen played 10 seasons in the CFL, nine of which were with the B.C. Lions.He was made a member of the Lions' All-Time Dream Team in 2003, and added to the Lions' Wall of Fame in 2012.He also won the Dick Suderman Trophy for the Grey Cup's Most Valuable Canadian in 1983."My dad touched so many people not only in the community, but with his football career," Klassen said. "We've been getting phone calls off the hook with prayers and support, so that's been a real blessing for us."Rick Klassen's football career took off during his time at Simon Fraser University. (Chad Klassen/YouTube)Chad Klassen says he and his father were close, and fondly remembers calling him to enthuse about their favourite teams — the Lions, the Canucks and the Seattle Seahawks — after big games."[Those are] really the moments where I'm going to miss him most, is watching a sporting event and knowing that if a big play happens, and I can't just pick up the phone and talk to him," Klassen said.Rick Klassen was part of a dominant Lions lineup throughout the 1980s, known for its strong defensive line. The team played in the first Grey Cup game held at the then-newly opened B.C. Place in 1983, and won the Cup in 1985."I think that's when my dad was the absolute happiest: being a professional football player,...

George Ferguson, former mayor of Abbotsford, BC, dead at age 91 - CBC.ca

Thursday, March 9, 2017

I want them to know they can walk right into my office and talk to the mayor."Leading role in development of the regionWhen Ferguson began his political career, the area between Langley and Chilliwack on the south side of the Fraser River was divided into three municipalities: Sumas, Matsqui and Abbotsford. B.C. Finance Minister Mike de Jong, who grew up in the Fraser Valley, said Ferguson is essentially responsible for much of the city of Abbotsford as it exists today."It wasn't until George Ferguson stood up as a leader and said, 'It is time for this amalgamation to occur,' that it did, and it has served the community very, very well," de Jong said."In many ways, that may be his largest legacy."De Jong said is still thought highly of within the B.C. political community."Here's a dairy farmer from Sumas Prairie who played a leading role over four decades, and never a hint of scandal," de Jong said. "Not even a whiff."A funeral is tentatively scheduled for March 18 at the Abbotsford Tradex.Ferguson is survived by his wife Ria, 11 children, 14 grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren.With files from Richard Zussman and Cory CorreiaLet's block ads!

A reflective Father Bob Haggarty looks back on his time in Lillooet - Bridge River Lillooet News

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Originally from Alberta, Father Bob was ordained in 1971 as a priest in the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate (OMI). The Order was founded in 1816 and has had a presence in British Columbia since 1858. The apostolic Oblates focused on outreach to remote and/or wilderness areas, which B.C. was at the time of the Gold Rush. “The Oblates were there, right at the beginning of the colonization of B.C.,” adds Father Bob, who says those early priests were so young that they were described as altar boys. He can quote the early history of the Oblates in B.C. chapter and verse, but is also fascinated by Canadian military history. He says that’s related to one of his mother’s brothers, who went overseas with the RCAF during the Second World War and was killed in action. “My mother had all these letters and pictures but had no time to organize them. But I thought, ‘If we don’t value his contributions, who’s going to?’ He sacrificed his life for this country, so I felt I owed him that and so I took every photo and every scrap of paper and put them in order.” After he began living here, Father Bob became intrigued by the history of local veterans, particularly the “Boys of Lillooet” whose names are inscribed on the cenotaph on the lawn outside the District Office. “I said to myself, ‘Who are you? Who are you?’” He then spent years researching their lives and eventually produced two volumes (World War One and World War Two) of priceless biographical material - old black and white and sepia photos, precious personal letters written from the front lines, military records and his own conversations with their siblings and other family members - that preserves the memory of the “Boys of Lillooet” for posterity. “Those fellows grew up here, lived within a five or 10-mile radius of downtown Lillooet and they never came back,” he says softly. “I thought they should be remembered and we should be proud of them.” Father Bob believes “history is made up of local people. It’s more than what Prince Charles has done. It’s people who are walking down the street. There’s history there, too.” He continues, “And it’s a good story if you go back and find out what happened. I remember hearing an interview with Mark Forsythe on the CBC and he was coming to Lytton for a public forum on the Gold Rush. It was also about the opening up of the Lillooet area and it was an eye-opener, too. I believe in history and I like to know history. I think the history of Lillooet makes you appreciate the place where you live. And for visitors, so much of B.C.’s history took place within a half mile of here.” He says, “Sometimes I’ll go down to Seton Lake and just sit there and I’ll ask people who are visiting for the day if they know where they are and what happened here. It makes it more interesting for them if they know some of the local history.” Father Bob acknowledges he’s “dealing with the reality of being a senior” and some health challenges involving his eyesight, but hopes to continue living here. “Why would I want to leave Lillooet?” he asks. “The environment here...

Community mourns doctor who put focus on health care in the north - CBC.ca

Thursday, April 12, 2018

A doctor who spent decades working to improve health care in northern British Columbia is being mourned after he died Tuesday night.Dr. Bert Kelly was a "tireless champion for health care" said Prince George city councillor Susan Scott, who announced his passing via Facebook.Kelly was a key architect of the Northern Medical Program, in which students in UBC's medical program are trained in northern B.C. in an effort to help recruit and retain future medical professionals in a region that historically has been underserved.Faced with chronic doctor shortages in Prince George and the surrounding area, Kelly helped lead a local group of physicians and specialists in what was effectively a strike in 2000, withdrawing non-essential services until the province agreed to commit more funding and efforts to recruitment and retention of doctors in the north. By 2004 the Northern Medical Program was opened, with Kelly serving the role of Executive Director of the Northern Medical Society.Truly sad this morning at the loss of Dr. Bert Kelly!
