Week in Review – Sept. 2

Some of the stories that made The News this week

Take a look back at some of the stories that made The News this week.

  • Police are investigating a Thursday evening shooting that left one man dead.
  • Alisha Mankatala had to wait a half hour for an operating room to become available, while her unborn child’s heart rate decelerated. When her baby was delivered by emergency c-section, he wasn’t breathing.
  • It’s been an historically dry summer in the Fraser Valley – the second driest on record. But unlike in years past, there haven’t been strict watering restrictions.
  • There were three fires of note this week. A car was completely engulfed in flames in a berry field near UFV, a home near the Aldergrove Abbotsford border went up in flames and another home, in South Abby, was destroyed along with a few cars.
  • We had updates this week to two of last week’s stories. The Abbotsford school district says it expects to have most of its 90 open teaching positions filled in time for classes to start on Tuesday. And we learned more about Chelsey Gauthier, the young Abbotsford mother recently found dead. Family describe her as having a very big heart.
