ockey is a game most Canadians take as a birthright. We grow up loving the game and immerse ourselves in it from a young age. Video cameras record children on skates for the first time; parents arise at ungodly hours to take their kids to early morning practices; and most youngsters fantasize about hearing the roar of the crowd after scoring an important goal. Now imagine how these heartwarming Canadian traditions would seem if e f

your focus; if you couldn’t understand what the coach was teaching in those early morning practices; if you couldn’t hear the roar of the crowd? Imagine the challenges faced every day by deaf kids trying to play the game they love? Kuvin Sadher knows. The North Delta teen has been in love with hockey ever since he was a toddler. He started playing the game when he was six and immediately ran into a big problem: skating involves balance, a sense that is centred in the ears. Born deaf, Sadher had to teach himself how to stay upright on the blades but to do so h h d

he says the most discouraging part about learning the game was the fact there were more practices than games. “The hardest part was learning to skate and balancing,” the 17-year-old Burnsview Secondary student recalls. “I don’t know when I finally stopped thinking about balancing. It came slowly.

“Yes, I was frustrated at times. It was always practices and no games. My dad pushed me and supported me, telling me not to give up. When we finally got to play a game it was great Wh I

Nine years ‘not enough’ for woman’s ‘cruel’ crime Tom Zytaruk

Now staff Twitter @tomzytaruk

A Surrey woman who pleaded guilty to cruelly burning 67 per cent of another woman’s body over a trivial argument involving a bicycle has been sentenced to nine years in prison. Surrey provincial court Judge Robin Baird said he had to consider Danielle Merasty’s aboriginal status as a lessening factor in determining her moral responsibility for what he called a “grotesque” and “mindboggling” crime that’s “nigh on impossible to believe.” “This case quite literally beggars belief,” Baird said. “This attack was profoundly cruel, inhumane and vicious.” With time already served, Merasty’s prison term works out to eight years and 11 weeks. The victim, Mehgan Pronick, didn’t comment on the sentence but it was clear she and members of her family weren’t satisfied that justice had been done. “It’s not enough,” said Pronick’s mom, Laura. She wanted the maximum 14 years for aggravated assault. The Crown had argued for a prison sentence of 10 to 12 years for the “monstrous” assault while the defence argued for a five-year prison term. Pronick was 25 when she suffered devastating disfigurement after Merasty, 21, doused her with an accelerant and set her on fire, on Dec. 17, 2011, during a petty squabble over a bicycle. The court heard both women had been “street friends,” addicted to crystal meth, when Pronick confiscated Merasty’s bike, thinking she’d stolen it. Merasty, in a planned attack, retaliated by chucking a Big Gulp sized cup of liquid lacquer thinner and some kind of powdered soap at Pronick and then set her on fire in a shed near 133rd Street and 103rd Avenue in Whalley. The court heard Pronick begged bystanders to kill her to put her out of her misery while Merasty walked away. Pronick’s face and head is severely disfigured, her right hand is mostly gone and she has three fingers left on her left hand. She’s had 13 reconstructive surgeries so far, with more to come. The court heard her young daughter has a hard time approaching her. Baird said the fact she didn’t die of her “dreadful” and “catastrophic” injuries “is in itself remarkable.” “I think your courage is astonishing,” Baird told Pronick, who was sitting with her family in the public gallery.

Surrey Urban Mission closing doors in January Tom Zytaruk

Now staff Twitter @tomzytaruk

The Surrey Urban Mission’s motto is “A Bridge to Hope” but it’s neck-deep in troubled waters itself. The mission – a ministry of the Evangelical Lutheran Church – first opened its doors to Whalley’s down-andout residents in 1999, providing them with shelter, food, warm clothing and numerous social services. Its building, at 13388 104th Ave., is designated an extreme weather shelter and can house overnight up to 60 souls when the mercury plunges below zero. It also serves three lunches during weekdays for up to 150 guests, as well as Saturday breakfast and Sunday dinner. But all that’s in jeopardy now as the mission must vacate the property by Jan.

26 to make way for the building of a 45storey Bosa tower. The mission’s executive director, Jonquil Hallgate, said the non-profit organization is desperately looking for a new home. “Unfortunately, in this neighbourhood property is pretty expensive,” she said. “I’m really worried.” Hallgate said they’ve scoped out some potential properties but have lost them to higher bidders. “We have no prospects,” she said. “There’s been a few ulcers and sleepless nights.” If the mission doesn’t find a new home soon, the consequences could be dire for hundreds of low-income families and homeless people within the city centre. “People are starting to become a little bit worried,” Hallgate said of the clientele, among whom are impoverished senior

citizens undergoing cancer treatment, single pregnant women who are broke and many others who just can’t get a break. Beside the emergency shelter, clothing and community meals programs, also at risk are the ESL classes, parenting classes, a health and wellness clinic, narcotics and cocaine anonymous, a dental program, outreach to new immigrants and refugees, and a variety of information and referral services. Hallgate is trying to put on a brave face but admits she’s getting “peeved” by the situation. She said she’s put Surrey City Hall on notice that “they can expect to get squatter reports from the first floor of their building” if new digs aren’t found, and soon. Christ the King Lutheran Ministry, which is 54 years old, will remain on site.

South Surrey

Residents protest diesel trucks on 32nd Avenue More than 200 protestors staged a rally Saturday to fight against diesel trucks being allowed to rumble through their South Surrey neighbourhood. They claim the trucks are poisoning children and families with carcinogenic fumes. The rally was staged by the 32nd Avenue Community Alliance in an attempt to have the truck route removed from 32nd

Avenue between 152nd and 176th streets. The rally was at the corner of 154th Street and 32nd Avenue. Its organizer, Pauline Cremin, said that over 1,000 diesel highway trucks are rumbling within metres of houses, schoolyards and homes for the elderly. “Knowing what we know about the deadly effects of diesel emissions, it is time for TransLink, City of Surrey and Ministry

of Transportation to make the right decision for the health of the residents,” she said. Cremin was pleased with Saturday’s turnout. A meeting of TransLink’s directors on Dec. 7 is next on the group’s agenda. “We may do something between now and then,” Cremin said.

Water built up behind wall before it collapsed ‹ from page 1

“They were calling the Code Orange and then not even a minute later, they were like, ‘If you can walk, run. There’s water coming,’” Reddekopp said. “Within probably 30 seconds or so, the whole ER was flooded, and within a minute, there was a foot and a half of water. It was quick, and it was a lot.” Emergency response crews closed off 96th Avenue between King George Boulevard and 140th Street for several hours as water pump trucks helped clean up the spill inside. In addition to the diagnostic imaging rooms, other areas directly affected included centres for physiotherapy, rehabilitation and dialysis. Reddekopp said the rupture may have been caused by the extensive construction work for the hospital’s $500-million expansion. “At the front of the hospital, they were digging,” she said. “I don’t know if they hit a pipe or what, but it was definitely a main water pipe and it knocked down a wall in

the ER.” Fraser Health issued a statement Monday, noting that during renovations to the ER, an excavator struck the pipe, which is the main feed of water into the hospital. The water leaked for some time, building up behind a wall before it collapsed into the ER. “There’s construction on the site right now for the critical care tower and it was a contractor that broke the pipe,” said Tasleem Juma, a spokeswoman for Fraser Health. Juma said that as of noon yesterday, running water was restored to the hospital through an alternate line, though on a limited basis. The chief medical health officer inspected the area and found that the water was not contaminated with sewage, so there is no concern over a public health hazard or decontamination. Crews are still assessing the extent of the damage and how long it will take to clean up. It’s unknown when the ER will reopen, though Fraser Health said it could reopen as early as today (Tuesday).

Red Nose looks for volunteers It’s that time of year again. Starting later this month and running through to New Year’s Eve, teams of Operation Red Nose volunteers will be out on local roads to offer people another option for a safe ride home during the holiday season. “Drinking and driving has caused so much hurt and loss for so many in our community,” said Delta police Chief Jim Cessford. “Drinking and driving is

totally avoidable.” Motorists in Surrey and Delta, along with 13 other areas in B.C., can count on the services of Operation Red Nose to get themselves and their vehicles home safely after a night of celebrating. Operation Red Nose is still looking for volunteers for this year’s campaign, especially on New Years Eve. This year, Operation Red Nose

will serve Surrey and Delta on Nov. 30, Dec. 1, 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22 and 31 between 9 p.m. and 3 a.m. Delta clients are advised to call 604-943-0460 to arrange a ride 30 to 45 minutes in advance of their desired pick up time, and 60 minutes in advance after midnight. Surrey’s phone line is 604-532-0888 and B.C.-wide, 1-877-604-NOSE.

Fare hikes set to take effect for Jan. 1, 2013 Jacob Zinn

Now contributor Twitter @jacobzinn

Starting Jan. 1, TransLink will increase bus and SkyTrain single fares in Metro Vancouver by as much as 10 per cent as part of the transit authority’s 2010 Funding Stabilization Plan. Fares make up 33 per cent of TransLink’s revenue and the additional funds generated will go toward operating and repairing the transit system. The last fare increase was in 2008 and the upcoming pricing rise reflects the rate of inflation in the last five years. One- and two-zone adult fares will increase by 25 cents to $2.75 and $4, respectively, while three-zone adult fares will increase by 50 cents to $5.50. One-zone concession fares will stay the same ($1.75), but two- and three-zone concession fares will go up by 25 cents to $2.75 and $3.75, respectively. These prices apply on weekdays from the start of service to 6:30 p.m.

Relax.

wAll-zone discount fares of $2.75 for adult and $1.75 for concession apply on weekdays after 6:30 p.m. and on weekends and holidays. The Monthly FareCard will increase by about 12.5 per cent for adults across all zones: one-zone will cost $91 (up from $81), two-zone will cost $124 (up from $110) and three-zone will cost $170 (up from $151). Concession FareCards will stay at a flat rate of $52 for all zones, up from $46.50. DayPasses will cost $9.75 for adult and $7.50 for concession, up from $9 and $7, respectively. As well, HandyDART users will also pay a little extra: the one- and two-zone fares will increase from $2.50 to $2.75, the three-zone fares from $3.75 to $4 and the four-zone fares from $5 to $5.50. The price of FareSaver books containing 10 tickets remains the same, except for onezone concession book, which will increase by 50 cents to $17.50.

The recent Tsawwassen First Nation election is being contested. TFN chief administrative officer Doug Raines confirmed two appeals were filed regarding the Sept. 5 election, however, the identities of those who filed and the grounds for appeal are protected by confidentiality.

He said it also can’t be revealed who in the newly elected government is the target, other than the appeals are based on “technical issues” leading up to the election. Bryce Williams, a 23-year-old carver, defeated longtime incumbent Kim Baird in the election for chief. The vote was 78 to 69 in favour of Williams, who was first elected to the TFN’s government in 2009 and had served on

Baird told the Vancouver Sun this week she personally didn’t file an appeal, but declined to comment further. September’s election also saw several newcomers selected to the 12person legislature.

The union representing civic workers has voted to file for mediation in its contract negotiations with Delta. Members of CUPE Local 454 gathered at the Delta Town & Country Inn for a special meeting in the wake of the latest round of collective bargaining talks. That session on Nov. 8 ended quickly with management walking away from the table, indicating it needed to seek further direction from Delta council. “Our members met yesterday to discuss the state of bargaining and provide direction to their bargaining committee,” local president Darryl Robison said Thursday. “The members in attendance expressed frustration that there has been little progress made at the table and felt that mediation might be the solution to break the deadlock.” Ken Kuntz, Delta’s director of parks, recreation and culture, earlier this week said not a lot of progress was made at last week’s bargaining session. He said management is

looking forward to getting back to the table in mid-December. Robison said he’s willing to talk anytime with his management counterparts. The union represents more than 850 civic employees. It also represents civilians at the Delta Police Department and Delta Museum and Archives employees, although those negotiations are being held separately. Delta’s unionized workforce has been without a contract since the end of 2011. Delta is negotiating directly with its employees after leaving the Metro Vancouver Labour Relations Bureau. As far as wages and benefits, CUPE Local 454 has proposed a four-year deal with “minor benefit improvements.” The union is also seeking a wage increase of around two per cent annually over the length of the contract, which Robison said is about the average being reached in other jurisdictions. The latest bargaining bulletin to CUPE members states the union’s bargaining committee believes it is close to a settlement, but it needs some co-operation from the employer.

New book highlights the ironies of politics InTheHouse Keith Baldrey

A

new book on a pivotal time in B.C. history is an excellent guide for how a government can ensure it won’t survive, no matter how good its intentions. And even though the book is about the NDP government of the 1970s, one assumes current NDP leader Adrian Dix realizes it contains lessons he won’t want to repeat if he forms government next spring. The book – The Art of the Impossible: Dave Barrett and the NDP in Power 19721975 – paints a picture of a government on a frantic roller-coaster ride, eager to fulfill ambitions that had lingered for decades and wanting to do so as quickly as possible. The authors, Rod Mickleburgh and Geoff Meggs, provide a sympathetic account of Barrett’s wild ride. While mindful of the historic

legacy of his government, they don’t sugarcoat the sense of near-chaos, poor planning and lack of strategy that ultimately doomed Barrett’s administration. There’s no question the NDP government of the 1970s established a rich and enduring legacy of landmark legislation that changed B.C. for the better in so many areas of society. The list is a long one: protection of agricultural land, a modern and fair labour code, a provincial ambulance service, public auto insurance, community colleges, a legislature question period, neighbourhood pubs and Pharmacare. The NDP also banned the strap in schools and abolished pay toilets. In all, they passed more than 350 bills in three years at a breathtaking average rate of two bills a week. But in their rush to do so much, they made many missteps. The Barrett government picked fights everywhere, including with

their own supporters, many of whom were blind to the realities of government and what it took to get reelected. And Barrett contributed in a great way to the polarization of B.C. politics, which ultimately worked against him and the NDP in the years following. After his defeat in 1975, Barrett fought two more elections against Social Credit premier Bill Bennett and lost each time. Polarization pitted the NDP against a larger pool of voters united against them, thus ensuring their loss. The Art of the Impossible (recommended reading, by the way) also shows how much B.C.’s political culture has changed since the early to mid-1970s, and here is where the lessons for Dix – and for Premier Christy Clark as well – come in. First, the organized labour movement is a

shadow of its former self. Barrett had to deal with powerful private sector union leaders who threatened to bring down his government after he legislated more than 50,000 striking workers back on the job. In fact, it can be argued much of that labour movement deserted the NDP in the 1975 election, which was akin to cutting off their nose to spite their face, as the Social Credit government was far less friendly to its interests. But labour no longer has that kind of political might. Much of its power now resides among public sector unions, which are more narrowly focused on their own plight. This removes a potential headache for Dix should he become premier. He won’t face the same kind of pressure from the labour movement that kept Barrett

up late at nights. Another thing that jumps out of The Art of the Impossible is how the forest industry has also almost disappeared from the political arena. Back then, of course, forestry was the dominant industry in this province and even talk of work stoppages in it were huge events. Union leaders like Jack Munro and Art Gruntman wielded considerable political power. Today, the industry has suffered thousands of job losses and simply doesn’t have the financial or political clout that played such a prominent role during Barrett’s time. Neither Dix nor Clark shows any signs of emulating Barrett’s approach to governing. Dix keeps stressing he has a “modest” agenda for government, and has

repeatedly said he doesn’t intend to bring in a lot of legislation should he gain power. As for Clark, she seems genuinely disinterested (if not contemptuous) of the legislature and the legislated process itself. But given Barrett’s penchant for polarizing the electorate, it’s interesting that it’s not the current NDP leader who seeks to do that. Dix is trying to turn down the temperature and play less partisan politics. But Clark is the one trying to polarize everything, to make the choice next May a stark one between left and right with nothing in the middle. It is Clark who is behaving more like Barrett. Ah, such are the ironies of B.C. politics! Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global BC Keith.Baldrey@globalnews.ca

Simpson’s arrogance on casino is shameful The Editor, Re: “Casino fears are unfounded,” the Now, Nov. 15. I find Beau Simpson’s column totally arrogant. How can Simpson say that casino fears are unfounded? There are many residents living in this vicinity who are very upset about this proposal. They chose to live in this area, (I am one of these residents) for the quietness, comforts of this neighbourhood, less traffic, views of Mt. Baker, trees and nature – a rural life. We did not choose to look at, or be so close to, this monster of a complex. Can you imagine what guests will think, when they enter B.C. at the Peace Arch crossing and the first view they get of “green” B.C. is a massive casino sign and an ugly seven-storey parkade? They will think they are entering a mini Vegas. While I do, unfortunately, realize that casinos are now a part of our society, this location just isn’t right. There is plenty of industrial land, already cleared in the area of 192nd Street and 32nd Avenue, where Gateway can build at their heart’s content, without a house in sight. They can build a 10-storey parkade at that location, including their monster of a casino complex and no one would be bothered. Oh yes, the other social reasons for not wanting a casino are all quite obvious and a lot of those legitimate reasons were discussed at the last community meeting, Nov. 14 at the Pacific Inn. There were about 430 people in attendance, with many speakers giving their reasons why a casino at this location would be a break up of this great community. Our real estate would be devalued and our wonderful neighbours will sell and move away. Simpson mentioned in his column that he does not gamble, (which is great) – but that it would be nice for him to have a another venue for his band and to take his wife dancing. I am sure there are other spots in the Lower Fraser Valley that he has not tried without wishing for this massive concrete jungle to be built. This concrete jungle’s big strobe lights will be reflected every night into the sky, and apart from ruining our enjoyment of a

residential neighbours? And what portion of your land will you keep in a “natural” state? Finally, can you address concerns about property value of surrounding residences? Zoe M, Surrey

Good luck getting gig at new casino, Beau

A proposed new casino has sparked a heated debate with readers in Surrey. dark sky for sleeping, it will negatively affect migrating and local birds and wildlife as well as the horse and llama breeding farm adjacent to the development. The widening of rural 168th Street will turn it into a busy thoroughfare to accommodate the thousands of extra vehicles going to and from the casino complex, with the possibility of freight trucks using it as a convenient shortcut to 16th Avenue. This complete change of infrastructure is shameful to our environment – and all for the sake of a casino. Michael Pohlmann, Surrey

Simpson is right but some concerns valid The Editor, Re: “Casino fears are unfounded,” the Now, Nov. 15. I totally agree with Beau Simpson regarding many of the concerns about the casino. I don’t agree that nothing good can come out of gambling; however, I do believe it will be imperative for Gateway and the City of Surrey to consider legitimate

concerns voiced by residents about the development. I am neither in support nor opposed to this project just yet. Here is some of what I submitted to the Gateway forum: I am not opposed to this project; however, at this time nor am in support of this project. I find this location a strange place to put this type of complex given its lack of proximity to other amenities and the residential land surrounding the site. I do also appreciate more amenities as I sometimes feel isolated, though I love my Sunday drives “in the country” and would hate to see this disappear. I think with the right type of planning this complex could be great, but without addressing legitimate concerns this could also be a disaster. Transportation – we have no local public transit and taxi cabs are incredibly difficult to get late on Friday and Saturday night, if not impossible. How are people to get home after a night out? And what type of consideration will there be for local residents who enjoy going for walks and have to contend with increased traffic as there are no designated pedestrian walkways? What measures will Gateway, BCLC, and the City of Surrey take to ensure there are transit options to the casino? How will you deal with the transitional zones with landscaping to protect your

Re: “Casino fears are unfounded,” the Now, Nov. 15. Beau, Beau, Beau. You say “my band will have a new place to play,” so I am writing this as one musician to another. You must know that unless you are Dal Richards’ lost love child or have polaroids, you wont get a sniff of work from that casino. You also say it means not having to take one’s spouse out of Surrey to celebrate a birthday. Have you seen the entertainment lineup at other casinos? It’s legion stuff with higher prices – April Wine, Burton Cummings and tribute bands until there’s no tomorrow. I’m against the casino, not because of the gaming, but because of the development in what is becoming a rare commodity in the area – green space, which will soon be the Highway 1 median just east of Hope. I’m now getting off my soapbox whilst removing tongue from cheek. Bill Dixon, Surrey

How would Simpson like casino in his yard? The Editor, Re: “Casino fears are unfounded,” the Now, Nov. 15. Beau Simpson: please do not write an article which is biased to one side. A newspaper is supposed to report the facts. How would you like a monster casino complex in your front yard? E. Wilson, Surrey

Boos, catcalls hammer proponents of new casino at South Surrey meeting Christopher Poon

Now staff Twitter @questionchris

It was the third and final communityorganized meeting regarding the proposed South Surrey casino and while the event was aimed at getting people the information they need to make a decision on the project, it was clear most attendees had already made up their minds. Hosted by the Surrey Ratepayers Association at the Pacific Inn hotel in South Surrey Wednesday night, more than 300 members of the public came to hear what various representatives of the proposal had to say. In attendance were representatives from BCLC, Gateway Casinos, First Nations and the City of Surrey, though no Surrey council members were present. Additionally, Coun. Helen Fathers of White Rock attended, as did representatives on behalf of MLAs Gordon Hogg of SurreyWhite Rock and Stephanie Cadieux of Surrey-Panorama. However, while the meeting was billed as an “information session” for people to have their questions answered, it quickly turned into a steady stream of opponents voicing their opposition to the project. “I don’t know about you, but I’m sick and tired of hearing some of the things I’m hearing from the bureaucratic spin doctors on how blessed we are to be having this casino in our community,” said Russ Buchanan. “If I was a hotel or restaurant operator in the area, I would be very concerned, and I wonder what happened that brought us to a place where we’re even considering this monster being put in your community to destroy your neighbourhood.” While stakeholders such as Jim Lightbody of the BCLC and James Chen of Gateway Casinos attempted to present numbers from a past study from 2007 showing how crime actually had gone down in Surrey as a result of casinos, they were subjected to catcalls and boos from the audience.

Jim Lightbody from BCLC faces a tough crowd Wednesday night in South Surrey. (Photo: CHRISTOPHER POON) “Those are the facts,” said Lightbody, in response to an audience member saying the stats weren’t true. Chen also noted that an open house held last week yielded roughly 160 response forms submitted to Gateway, of which more than half were in favour of the casino. Chen’s figure was met with outrage by the audience. Terry McNiece, president of the South Surrey Ratepayers Association, had to remind the audience to be civil several times over the course of the evening, and that the representatives were attending on their own time. Others took the meeting as an

opportunity to speak out about possible links between the 16th Avenue on-ramp and the casino’s potential to raise the value of Gateway Casinos were the private company to ever go public. However, despite the general mood of disapproval from the audience, there were some residents with genuine questions for the stakeholders. One man from the audience asked if Surrey taxpayers would be liable for costs of things like sewers and roads that would have to be built for the complex if the casino did not end up being the moneymaker for Surrey it’s being touted as. To that, Ron Hintsche, manager of planning for the south of Surrey said, “No, Surrey residents would not be on the hook.” Hintsche added that the costs for any sewage/road services would be fronted by Gateway. A woman named Pam wondered why the First Nations were being so vocal about the lack of consultation and their refusal to take a stance on the issue. She wondered if residents would rather have a casino put in White Rock on the beach where they would have no say, as they do not own the land. In the end, McNiece advised those in attendance to submit their thoughts to Surrey council, as it had the final say on whether or not the proposal would proceed. McNiece asked everyone to attend a Nov. 26 council meeting to show their disproval for the gaming application that is set to come before council at that time, and again at tentative Dec. 10 public hearing on the application, if council moves it forward. cpoon@thenownewspaper.com

About 40 kindergarteners from Erma Stephenson Elementary in Fraser Heights designed Christmas tree decorations recently for the Season of Trees event at the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel. Fifteen or so Christmas trees are now on display at the hotel. On Nov. 29, the trees will be auctioned off at a wine and cheese celebration, with proceeds going to the Sources Community Resources Society. “They really were thrilled – and so were we – to be part of this event,” said Serena Looi, one of two kindergarten teachers at the school. Looi said the mother of one of her students presented the class with the idea of decorating one of the trees. The kids immediately loved the idea and they made the decorations during arts and crafts. “She does a lot of fundraising out in

I wanted to bring it to Surrey,” she said. “The Sheraton’s such a great venue and it’s a great way to celebrate the holiday season.” Sources currently has 13 businesses sponsoring the trees and hopes the auction will pull in between $7,500 and $10,000. “We have no idea what a bid on a tree will bring in, so it’s a new area for us,” she said. Money raised from the auction – and from the $50 tickets to attend the wine and cheese event – will go toward various Sources programs. Tickets can be bought online at sourcesbc.ca. Looi added that she’s planning a field trip with her students to the hotel so they can see their work on display. “We’ll probably be part of it next year,” she said. “They really enjoyed it, and so did the teachers. It was a good way to start Christmas – in November.” Keeping with the holiday spirit, Surrey Libraries is holding a live tree decorating contest, with over $500 in prizes from Potter’s.

It’s time to go shopping for a couple of extra toys because the second annual Stuff the Bus event is coming up soon. Comfort Inn Hotel & Suites is hosting the twoday event again, with hopes of beating last year’s record when generous donors filled an entire bus with gifts in 24 hours. The idea is for people to drop off new and gently used items that will be delivered to the Surrey Christmas Bureau. Among the items accepted are new and gently used toys, clothing and household items for under-privileged children and families who will receive the items through the Christmas Bureau program.

Utilizing a comprehensive approach involving lab and food sensitivity testing, we identify the underlying medical, dietary, and nutritional factors that interfere with weight loss. We create a complete dietary, nutritional, and lifestyle plan specific for you that leads to not only dramatic short term weight loss but long term maintenance without feeling deprived.

Alice Higgs named winner of challenge Carolyn Cooke

Higgs, a mom of two who lives in South Surrey and commutes to her desk job in downtown Vancouver, said her success was due to making lots of small but sustainable changes to her daily routines. “I think in the past one of my biggest hurdles has always been exercising consistently. In this particular challenge there were days when I thought, ‘God I don’t want to do this,’ but in the end I did six ‘hard’ workouts and then on my leisurely

The votes are in and Alice Higgs came out the winner for the second annual Be Active Challenge hosted by the City of Surrey. She said she lost eight and a half pounds and about 11 centimetres during the month-long challenge. “I was really happy to see some of those changes,” she said.

day I did a much more leisurely activity. “I worked out every single day and that was a huge change,” said Higgs. Each team member also had a nutritional tour, learned to read food labels and tried out new foods and new recipes. “It was the holistic thing of having exercise and the nutritional component – all those changes make really big differences at the end.” Among the unexpected benefits of her participation in the challenge, Higgs said her

two daughters now tend to choose activities instead of food treats for rewards and she was surprised to see a number of friends, family and coworkers inspired to also make healthier choices and take up exercise too. “All the changes that I’ve made in the last bit are possible for anyone as long as they’re planning and being mindful. You just have to make it work in your life,” she said.

Irradiation and the fight against food bacteria

S

hannon Lambie had never planted garlic before. So when she asked what she thought was a simple question, she got an answer that surprised her. As a volunteer with the Edible Garden Project in North Vancouver, Lambie was recently visiting Loutet Farm with local elementary school students. The group was learning about garlic: its lifecycle, how to cook it, and how it grows. After learning how garlic can grow from garlic bulbs planted in soil, Lambie asked one of the Loutet farmers if any garlic clove from storebought garlic would work for planting. The answer was no. She was told most of the non-organic garlic bulbs sold in stores have been irradiated and so do not sprout. “I was genuinely surprised and concerned that I didn’t know this about our food,” says Lambie, who is completing her master’s degree in International Studies at SFU and is focused on community food production, particularly urban agriculture. After some online research, she posted a blog on the Edible Garden Project website noting some of her concerns about irradiated food, including that the process contributes to the industrialization of the food system; reduces nutrient content; creates radiolytic products with unknown long-term effects; and it is not 100 per cent effective. “I just thought maybe other people might want to know too,” she says of posting the blog. Health Canada notes on its website that food irradiation is a method of preserving food by exposing it to radiation energy to kill harmful bacteria. It is used to prevent foodborne illness and spoilage and to increase shelf life. Health Canada says food irradiation is safe for consumers. Lambie says she does believe Health Canada’s claim that food irradiation is probably not very dangerous, but “it might be,” she says, noting the effects are not 100per-cent known.

Kevin Allen is an assistant professor of food microbiology in the Food, Nutrition and Health program at UBC. He specializes in foodborne pathogens and their effects on Canada’s food chain. Allen says irradiation was developed more than 100 years ago and extensive research has shown it to be safe. While it does reduce the nutrients in some foods, the reduction is not significant and is less than traditional thermal methods, he notes. “When it’s done properly and when food has been exposed to appropriate irradiation levels there’s absolutely no risk to consumers, and, in fact, the food that results is microbiologically more stable and microbiologically safe,” he says. “The biggest issue with irradiation is not that the food isn’t safe because that’s absolutely not the case. The biggest issue is that consumers aren’t willing to accept it. They’re worried

by Rosalind Duane

that their food is going to glow, that it’s going to be radioactive, and that it’s going to cause them harm.” Irradiated food is exposed to certain doses of the energy source. The length of the irradiation affects the dose and the number of microorganisms destroyed. “There is a flip side to that: if food is over-irradiated you can generate what are called radiolytic products and it can represent a risk to the public, but in facilities that do this they certainly use a controlled process that prevents that from happening,” says Allen. In Canada, irradiation is used on some produce, including some potatoes (to prevent them from sprouting). A lot of other countries use irradiation for insect control on many exported foods. Canada imports a lot of spices from Asia that are irradiated. “There is a labeling requirement for foods

that are irradiated,” explains Allen. If 10 per cent of the product has been irradiated then the label has to have a Radura symbol on it, but spices are not identified as irradiated mainly because they are a small constituent of what is used in the cooking process so are not over that 10-per-cent bar. Canada is connected to the globalized food supply and that has been a source of foodborne disease. However, it’s not just the importation of food that is responsible for foodborne disease, notes Allen. The recent recall of beef from the Alberta-based XL Foods plant due to E. coli contamination is a good example, he notes. Canada does not use irradiation on meat, but Allen says irradiation would have made that beef safer before it was sold. “We simply don’t use it for meat because consumers aren’t willing to accept the technology,” he says. “And it’s really too bad because irradiation is a really attractive intervention from a food-safety perspective.” Allen says it has been estimated that if Canada were to irradiate its food supply it would reduce foodborne disease by up to 25-50 per cent. Consumers play an active role in food safety as well, especially in how they handle food. “They have to do what they can in their home just in case we have failures upstream,” says Allen. “We have to do what we can to protect ourselves. And what we really hope is that the people supplying us with food have done their job and that the government regulations are appropriate and will help contribute to a safe food supply.” Lambie agrees there are things consumers can do. “I think it’s kind of sad when people don’t know how the food they’re eating got to them, where it came from and what it went through to get to them. Food irradiation is just one of those issues and there’s a lot more,” she says. “I think it would be really great if everyone could be mindful of the whole process.” ●

Introducing the SPA493

Little price difference found between grocery stores and farmers’ markets

I

A

PHOTO MIKE WAKEFIELD

t has been 25 years in the making, but apple lovers have a new variety to sink their teeth into. The new apple variety, named Salish, was introduced at UBC’s annual apple festival in early October. Previously known as SPA493, the Salish apple was created from a crosspollination made in the early 1980s between Splendour and Gala varieties. A press release from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada noted Salish is a medium-sized apple with thin skin. The texture is crispy, firm and tangy. Its appearance is 80 per cent solid cherryred blush over a yellow base colour. The release notes that the Salish apple variety is Canadian and non-genetically modified. The development of the new variety was led by Agriculture and AgriFood Canada researchers at the Pacific Agri-Food Centre in Summerland, working closely with the Okanagan Plant Improvement Corporation to test it with growers. Salish is grown by orchardists in the Okanagan Valley and is harvested in mid to late October. ●

recent press release from the B.C. Association of Farmers’ Markets notes that a study by Seattle University between 2003-2011 found organic fruits and vegetables in season are either cheaper or of equal value at a farmers’ market. The B.C. Association of Farmers’ Markets is looking at how farmers’ market prices compare with grocery stores. Preliminary findings in six B.C. communities indicate that conventional and organic products at farmers’ markets are the same price or less than at grocery stores. In Vancouver, 11 out of 15 conventional and organic fruits and vegetables compared were the same price or less. Products were compared at three major grocery chains and the majority had very few B.C. products on their shelves despite being in the middle of B.C.’s prime agricultural season. Only B.C.owner Save-On-Foods carried a decent selection of B.C. product. Farmers’ markets often have more organic selection and this can make them seem expensive, but the price of equivalent products is generally the same or less than in grocery stores. ●

Angel Trees now grace each of the Envision Financial locations in the area and everyone is invited to drop by to take an ornament or two to ensure a brighter Christmas for the less fortunate. “The statistics really speak to the need for this program,” said Susan Byrom, manager of corporate citizenship at Envision Financial. “One in five children in B.C. live under the poverty line and this year alone, B.C. food banks served over 28,000 kids. That’s why we’re so proud of our Angel Tree program. By participating, local residents have the opportunity to make the holidays brighter for families, children and seniors in our communities.” The program supports local charities in each of the communities where Envision has locations. In Surrey, the beneficiaries are the Surrey Food Bank and Surrey Christmas Bureau; in Delta, they are Deltassist, Reach Child and Youth Development Society and South Delta Food Bank; and in White Rock, the Sources’ Food Bank and the Salvation Army of White Rock/South Surrey. These organizations will then disburse the food and items collected to needy clients.

This is the third year for the Angel Trees, an initiative that has grown larger each year. “In 2011 our Angel Tree program gave 600 Christmas gifts to residents in our local communities and this year we want to give even more,” said Byrom. Members of the public are encouraged to take an angel from the tree and return it with a new, unwrapped gift before Saturday, Dec. 8. Each tree has ornaments with descriptors of local people, such as “Boy age 12,” “Senior Gentleman” or “Girl age 14.” The idea is to take one or more ornaments and return with appropriate gifts for each. This year, there are also tin can ornaments to be returned with donations of cash or nonperishable food items. All of the items and money raised in each community will stay in that community. As well, Envision is aiming to fill 500 hampers through the program. You can click on a YouTube video put together by Envision about the Angel Tree program, and for each view, the credit union will donate $1 to the program, up to $10,000, which will then be distributed to the program’s community partners.

Delta Museum and Archives Society is looking for dedicated and resourceful volunteers to serve as docents. Delta’s rich history and cultural heritage – from the First Nations to early pioneers – is housed in the 1912 Tudor-style building on Delta Street in Ladner. Each year, visitors from all around the world visit and discover Delta’s story through photos, educational programs, collections and exhibits. Helping to bring this history to life for today’s generation of children are the docents of the Delta Museum, which is now recruiting for new volunteer docents. Are you interested in history? Do you enjoy storytelling? Are you comfortable speaking in front of an audience? Can you engage the enthusiasm of kids while leading historically themed children’s education programs? Do you have some spare time? If you the answer is yes to all of these questions, perhaps you would be an ideal candidate to become a museum docent. An ideal candidate for docent is someone who can commit to 2.5 hours per week at the museum during the school year. All necessary

Eagles fall short in showdown with Chiefs Michael Booth

Now staff Twitter @boothnow

The Surrey Eagles came up one goal short in a showdown between two of the hottest teams in the B.C. Hockey League Friday night atSouth Surrey Arena. The Eagles’ six-game points streak came to an end with a narrow 2-1 loss to the streaking Chilliwack Chiefs. Surrey missed on a chance to pull even with the

Chiefs atop the BCHL’s Mainland Division and then fell further behind when the Chiefs ran their win streak to six games with a win over Coquitlam Saturday. Surrey is now six points behind Chilliwack and tied for second with the Prince George Spruce Kings. Despite the setback, Eagles coach Matt Erhart said there were plenty of positives for his squad. “It was probably the best onetwo match-up of the season in our

division and it was a great game,” Erhart said. “Both goalies played great and at times they were better than us and other times we were better than them. It ended up a 2-1 game so clearly it was close right to the end.” With goalies Mitch Gillam (Chilliwack) and Michael Santaguida (Surrey) playing at the top of their games with a combined 72 saves on 75 shots, the contest turned on special teams. Chilliwack

scored a power-play goal in the final two minutes of the first period and then added a short-handed marker a minute into the middle frame to take a commanding 2-0 lead. Surrey answered with a thirdperiod goal by Demico Hannoun, but despite outshooting the Chiefs 17-12 in the final frame, the Eagles were unable to beat Gillam for the equalizer. “Playing five-on-five we won the game 1-0 so that made special

teams even more important,” Erhart said after his team came up empty on six power play opportunities. “When you’re hot you get the bounces and we didn’t get the bounces that night. We have been getting bounces in other games though so this was just one of those games.” The Eagles hit the road for two games in Prince George this weekend.

Seahawks soar over Valley Firehawks defend Valley title The Seaquam Seahawks extended their reign over the Fraser Valley’s senior girls AAA volleyball landscape. Despite some periods of disinterested play, the Seahawks knocked off the MEI Eagles 3-1 to successfully defend their AAA title at Fraser Valley finals at the Langley Events Centre last week. The Seahawks have not lost a match to a class AAA team in almost two years, a streak that includes the 2011 provincial championships and now back-to-back Fraser Valley championships. Despite their dominance in the Valley, Seaquam coach Todd Clarke said his team did not perform at their best against MEI. “It was a tough match; it was like we were going uphill all game,” Clarke said. “That’s what makes us good though — even when we’re not at our best we find a way to win. MEI played really well and to be honest, I thought they played better than us. With that said, we won the match 3-1 and we could have won it 3-0. We’re tough to beat and while we may win ugly sometimes, it’s still a win and we’ll take it.” The MEI speed bump in the final was the only rough road encountered by the Seahawks in the Valley tourney. After breezing past Mountain Secondary in

their Valley opener, the Seahawks swept Brookswood in the semifinals before taking on MEI in the title game. This year’s format brought all of the Valley finals to the Langley Events Centre for one night of championship volleyball. Clarke said the change of venue, while warmly received by coaches and players, might have contributed to some of the uneven play. “Both teams were kind of sloppy at times,” he said. “Playing in a different venue where none of the kids had played before can be a little intimidating. The kids liked it there though; it’s a really nice venue.” Seaquam won the first game and was comfortably ahead 20-11 in the second game only to watch as MEI stormed back to earn a 25-23 win. Seaquam then cranked up their game and won the next two games handily to take the match 3-1. Seaquam middle blocker Nicola Laniuk was named tournament MVP, while outside hitters Mandelyn Erikson and Amy Davidson were both named to the all-star team. Seaquam now turns their attention to the B.C. championships beginning Nov. 29 at Crofton House. Seaquam is expected to hold down the No. 1 seed for the provincials.

With a second consecutive Fraser Valley title in their back pocket, the Fraser Heights Firehawks are focused on a much bigger, bluer banner to hang in the school gym. The Firehawks lived up to their No. 1 ranking by rolling through the Fraser Valley tourney and successfully defending the title they won as a team loaded with Grade 11s last year. Fraser Heights coach James Ahn said last year’s team was excited to win the Valley but the 2012 Firehawks have higher aspirations. “It was good to win the Fraser Valleys and it was good to repeat as champions, but we have a bigger goal in mind this year,” he said. “To us, the Fraser Valley championship is more of a stepping stone to where we want to go. “Last year it was a little different because we were still testing and proving ourselves. This year we’ve had so much success and we know that if we execute like we should, then we should be able to beat any team.” Fraser Heights opened the Valleys by sweeping aside Yale in straight games before dispatching Elgin Park 3-1 in the semifinals. That set up an all-Surrey showdown between the Firehawks and their South Surrey rivals from Earl Marriott in the title game. Earl Marriott dropped the first game but then stunned the Firehawks by winning the

next two to put the defending champs on the brink. Undeterred, the Firehawks stormed back to win the final two games 25-17, 15-9 to take the match and the banner 3-2. “It was definitely not our best effort but we did find a way to squeak out a win,” Ahn said. “We’ve been ranked No. 1 all year, we won the big UBC tournament, we won the big Thompson River University tournament and we’ve handled ourselves well. Against Earl Marriott I think the boys kind of got ahead of themselves a bit.”

This year we’ve had so much success and we know that if we execute like we should, then we should be able to beat any team. Right-side hitter William Dichuk was named tournament MVP. Power hitter Irvan Brar and setter Josiah Ahn were selected to the all-star team. Coach Ahn added power hitter Vadim Chernenko merited all-star consideration for his unselfish digging to keep rallies going.

Golf report I don’t even know if I have been on a cut line for a job, let alone play the pressure of a cut line at any sports level. I am a jock watcher rather than player. B.C.’s own Jim Rutledge, on the other hand, knows all about the pressure of making it. Rutledge, from Victoria, will once more play on the Champions Tour after taking one of only five spots available at the Champions Tour School. He’ll be the only one carrying the Canadian flag on that tour, with Rod Spittle of Ontario failing to make the grade. It wasn’t easy. Rutledge had to birdie the first extra hole of a playoff to grab that fifth and last spot. It’s a tough game on the older guys’ tour with only the top 30 keeping their card, unless you have a strong history on the PGA Tour. Once you’re at the top, it’s tougher to stay there. Rutledge will take some time at home in Victoria and then it’s back to practising and playing for real by the end of January. The thrill and the heartache is not over for those still alive at the PGA’s Qschool. Only seven Canadians have made it to the PGA’s upcoming final tournament of Qschool – sixrounds of torture starting Nov. 28 at PGA West in La Quinta California. Here’s the good news; two of those players are from British Columbia: Roger Sloan of Merritt and Adam Hadwin of Abbotsford are the final two left standing from B.C. Sloan worked his way through the first two rounds and Hadwin was exempt to the final round as a result of his finish on the Web.Com tour. He barely missed making it on the money list and now it gets a lot tougher. Twenty-one Canadians started the journey. Joining our two from B.C. in the final tournament are: Mitch Evanecz, Red Deer, Alta. Brad Fritsch, Manotick, Ont. Matt Hill, Sarnia, Richard Scott, Kingsville, and Ryan Yip of Calgary. Fritsch already has his card from the Web tour but is hoping to improve his PGA status in this tournament. Close to home, Nick Taylor of Abbotsford and Eugene Wong of North Vancouver – who came into tournament’s second round with high hopes – fell short. Stuart Anderson of Sooke had his best round of his tournament but he too fell just short. Three Canadian women are still alive for the final round at the LPGA’s Qschool. Sue Kim, Langley, Kirby Dreher, Fort St John and Samantha Richdale, Kelowna, will carry Canada’s hopes. Only eight Canadian women made it to the final stage – three are from B.C. – now that’s an aces effort. You can reach me at preimer@canwest.com

ockey is a game most Canadians take as a birthright. We grow up loving the game and immerse ourselves in it from a young age. Video cameras record children on skates for the first time; parents arise at ungodly hours to take their kids to early morning practices; and most youngsters fantasize about hearing the roar of the crowd after scoring an important goal. Now imagine how these heartwarming Canadian traditions would seem if e f

your focus; if you couldn’t understand what the coach was teaching in those early morning practices; if you couldn’t hear the roar of the crowd? Imagine the challenges faced every day by deaf kids trying to play the game they love? Kuvin Sadher knows. The North Delta teen has been in love with hockey ever since he was a toddler. He started playing the game when he was six and immediately ran into a big problem: skating involves balance, a sense that is centred in the ears. Born deaf, Sadher had to teach himself how to stay upright on the blades but to do so h h d

“Yes, I was frustrated at times. It was always practices and no games. My dad pushed me and supported me, telling me not to give up. When we finally got to play a game it was great Wh I

Nine years ‘not enough’ for woman’s ‘cruel’ crime Tom Zytaruk

Now staff Twitter @tomzytaruk

A Surrey woman who pleaded guilty to cruelly burning 67 per cent of another woman’s body over a trivial argument involving a bicycle has been sentenced to nine years in prison. Surrey provincial court Judge Robin Baird said he had to consider Danielle Merasty’s aboriginal status as a lessening factor in determining her moral responsibility for what he called a “grotesque” and “mindboggling” crime that’s “nigh on impossible to believe.” “This case quite literally beggars belief,” Baird said. “This attack was profoundly cruel, inhumane and vicious.” With time already served, Merasty’s prison term works out to eight years and 11 weeks. The victim, Mehgan Pronick, didn’t comment on the sentence but it was clear she and members of her family weren’t satisfied that justice had been done. “It’s not enough,” said Pronick’s mom, Laura. She wanted the maximum 14 years for aggravated assault. The Crown had argued for a prison sentence of 10 to 12 years for the “monstrous” assault while the defence argued for a five-year prison term. Pronick was 25 when she suffered devastating disfigurement after Merasty, 21, doused her with an accelerant and set her on fire, on Dec. 17, 2011, during a petty squabble over a bicycle. The court heard both women had been “street friends,” addicted to crystal meth, when Pronick confiscated Merasty’s bike, thinking she’d stolen it. Merasty, in a planned attack, retaliated by chucking a Big Gulp sized cup of liquid lacquer thinner and some kind of powdered soap at Pronick and then set her on fire in a shed near 133rd Street and 103rd Avenue in Whalley. The court heard Pronick begged bystanders to kill her to put her out of her misery while Merasty walked away. Pronick’s face and head is severely disfigured, her right hand is mostly gone and she has three fingers left on her left hand. She’s had 13 reconstructive surgeries so far, with more to come. The court heard her young daughter has a hard time approaching her. Baird said the fact she didn’t die of her “dreadful” and “catastrophic” injuries “is in itself remarkable.” “I think your courage is astonishing,” Baird told Pronick, who was sitting with her family in the public gallery.

Surrey Urban Mission closing doors in January Tom Zytaruk

Now staff Twitter @tomzytaruk

The Surrey Urban Mission’s motto is “A Bridge to Hope” but it’s neck-deep in troubled waters itself. The mission – a ministry of the Evangelical Lutheran Church – first opened its doors to Whalley’s down-andout residents in 1999, providing them with shelter, food, warm clothing and numerous social services. Its building, at 13388 104th Ave., is designated an extreme weather shelter and can house overnight up to 60 souls when the mercury plunges below zero. It also serves three lunches during weekdays for up to 150 guests, as well as Saturday breakfast and Sunday dinner. But all that’s in jeopardy now as the mission must vacate the property by Jan.

26 to make way for the building of a 45storey Bosa tower. The mission’s executive director, Jonquil Hallgate, said the non-profit organization is desperately looking for a new home. “Unfortunately, in this neighbourhood property is pretty expensive,” she said. “I’m really worried.” Hallgate said they’ve scoped out some potential properties but have lost them to higher bidders. “We have no prospects,” she said. “There’s been a few ulcers and sleepless nights.” If the mission doesn’t find a new home soon, the consequences could be dire for hundreds of low-income families and homeless people within the city centre. “People are starting to become a little bit worried,” Hallgate said of the clientele, among whom are impoverished senior

citizens undergoing cancer treatment, single pregnant women who are broke and many others who just can’t get a break. Beside the emergency shelter, clothing and community meals programs, also at risk are the ESL classes, parenting classes, a health and wellness clinic, narcotics and cocaine anonymous, a dental program, outreach to new immigrants and refugees, and a variety of information and referral services. Hallgate is trying to put on a brave face but admits she’s getting “peeved” by the situation. She said she’s put Surrey City Hall on notice that “they can expect to get squatter reports from the first floor of their building” if new digs aren’t found, and soon. Christ the King Lutheran Ministry, which is 54 years old, will remain on site.

Protesters rally at the corner of 154th Street and 32nd Avenue Saturday. The group doesn’t want diesel trucks rumbling through their area. (Photo: GORD GOBLE)

South Surrey

Residents protest diesel trucks on 32nd Avenue More than 200 protestors staged a rally Saturday to fight against diesel trucks being allowed to rumble through their South Surrey neighbourhood. They claim the trucks are poisoning children and families with carcinogenic fumes. The rally was staged by the 32nd Avenue Community Alliance in an attempt to have the truck route removed from 32nd

Avenue between 152nd and 176th streets. The rally was at the corner of 154th Street and 32nd Avenue. Its organizer, Pauline Cremin, said that over 1,000 diesel highway trucks are rumbling within metres of houses, schoolyards and homes for the elderly. “Knowing what we know about the deadly effects of diesel emissions, it is time for TransLink, City of Surrey and Ministry

of Transportation to make the right decision for the health of the residents,” she said. Cremin was pleased with Saturday’s turnout. A meeting of TransLink’s directors on Dec. 7 is next on the group’s agenda. “We may do something between now and then,” Cremin said.

Water built up behind wall before it collapsed ‹ from page 1

“They were calling the Code Orange and then not even a minute later, they were like, ‘If you can walk, run. There’s water coming,’” Reddekopp said. “Within probably 30 seconds or so, the whole ER was flooded, and within a minute, there was a foot and a half of water. It was quick, and it was a lot.” Emergency response crews closed off 96th Avenue between King George Boulevard and 140th Street for several hours as water pump trucks helped clean up the spill inside. In addition to the diagnostic imaging rooms, other areas directly affected included centres for physiotherapy, rehabilitation and dialysis. Reddekopp said the rupture may have been caused by the extensive construction work for the hospital’s $500-million expansion. “At the front of the hospital, they were digging,” she said. “I don’t know if they hit a pipe or what, but it was definitely a main water pipe and it knocked down a wall in

the ER.” Fraser Health issued a statement Monday, noting that during renovations to the ER, an excavator struck the pipe, which is the main feed of water into the hospital. The water leaked for some time, building up behind a wall before it collapsed into the ER. “There’s construction on the site right now for the critical care tower and it was a contractor that broke the pipe,” said Tasleem Juma, a spokeswoman for Fraser Health. Juma said that as of noon yesterday, running water was restored to the hospital through an alternate line, though on a limited basis. The chief medical health officer inspected the area and found that the water was not contaminated with sewage, so there is no concern over a public health hazard or decontamination. Crews are still assessing the extent of the damage and how long it will take to clean up. It’s unknown when the ER will reopen, though Fraser Health said it could reopen as early as today (Tuesday).

Red Nose looks for volunteers It’s that time of year again. Starting later this month and running through to New Year’s Eve, teams of Operation Red Nose volunteers will be out on local roads to offer people another option for a safe ride home during the holiday season. “Drinking and driving has caused so much hurt and loss for so many in our community,” said Delta police Chief Jim Cessford. “Drinking and driving is

totally avoidable.” Motorists in Surrey and Delta, along with 13 other areas in B.C., can count on the services of Operation Red Nose to get themselves and their vehicles home safely after a night of celebrating. Operation Red Nose is still looking for volunteers for this year’s campaign, especially on New Years Eve. This year, Operation Red Nose

will serve Surrey and Delta on Nov. 30, Dec. 1, 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22 and 31 between 9 p.m. and 3 a.m. Delta clients are advised to call 604-943-0460 to arrange a ride 30 to 45 minutes in advance of their desired pick up time, and 60 minutes in advance after midnight. Surrey’s phone line is 604-532-0888 and B.C.-wide, 1-877-604-NOSE.

Fare hikes set to take effect for Jan. 1, 2013 Jacob Zinn

Now contributor Twitter @jacobzinn

Starting Jan. 1, TransLink will increase bus and SkyTrain single fares in Metro Vancouver by as much as 10 per cent as part of the transit authorityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2010 Funding Stabilization Plan. Fares make up 33 per cent of TransLinkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s revenue and the additional funds generated will go toward operating and repairing the transit system. The last fare increase was in 2008 and the upcoming pricing rise reflects the rate of inflation in the last five years. One- and two-zone adult fares will increase by 25 cents to $2.75 and $4, respectively, while three-zone adult fares will increase by 50 cents to $5.50. One-zone concession fares will stay the same ($1.75), but two- and three-zone concession fares will go up by 25 cents to $2.75 and $3.75, respectively. These prices apply on weekdays from the start of service to 6:30 p.m.

Relax.

wAll-zone discount fares of $2.75 for adult and $1.75 for concession apply on weekdays after 6:30 p.m. and on weekends and holidays. The Monthly FareCard will increase by about 12.5 per cent for adults across all zones: one-zone will cost $91 (up from $81), two-zone will cost $124 (up from $110) and three-zone will cost $170 (up from $151). Concession FareCards will stay at a flat rate of $52 for all zones, up from $46.50. DayPasses will cost $9.75 for adult and $7.50 for concession, up from $9 and $7, respectively. As well, HandyDART users will also pay a little extra: the one- and two-zone fares will increase from $2.50 to $2.75, the three-zone fares from $3.75 to $4 and the four-zone fares from $5 to $5.50. The price of FareSaver books containing 10 tickets remains the same, except for onezone concession book, which will increase by 50 cents to $17.50.

He said it also can’t be revealed who in the newly elected government is the target, other than the appeals are based on “technical issues” leading up to the election.

Baird told the Vancouver Sun this week she personally didn’t file an appeal, but declined to comment further. September’s election also saw several newcomers selected to the 12person legislature.

Despite school districts now being able to set their own school calendars, it’s going to be business as usual as far as Surrey schools are concerned. Having been passed as part of Bill 36 earlier this year, the school calendar regulations were revealed late last week by the Ministry of Education. According to the ministry, come the 20132014 school year, school boards will be able to determine the number and dates of days in session, the number of dates of each day of instruction, the dates of vacation periods and the dates of each non-instructional day. While school boards now have their own say, Surrey Board of Education Chair Laurae McNally said don’t expect anything in Surrey to change soon. “At the moment we have no plans to do so,” said McNally of altering the calendar year from its current form. “Two or three years ago we consulted the community quite widely as to what they thought about year-

long schooling and some said they knew students didn’t retain as much with the summer recess and maybe it would be a good idea, others said it would disrupt family life and others said if you’re going to Laurae McNally do it, you have to do it as an entire Metro region because it would interfere with athletic events and that.” In the end, McNally said the decision to look at a different education schedule for Surrey was shelved. However, McNally noted that students looking for year-round schooling still have those options available to them as it currently stands. “We have summer sessions anyway in our district because we have over 10,000 students each year who choose to go to summer school, so it’s not an issue here at the moment,” she said. cpoon@thenownewspaper.com

Surrey school trustees expenses are revealed Christopher Poon

Now staff Twitter @qurstionchris

For the 2011-2012 school year, Surrey school trustees claimed $23,522 in expenses, an increase of around $2,500 from the previous year. The numbers were contained in the Statement of Financial Information (SOFI) report, an annual report detailing the school district’s expenses each year. Topping out the list for expenses was Laurae McNally, chair of the Board of Education for Surrey at $6,260, followed by vice chair Shawn Wilson with $5,583. Trustee Reni Masi claimed the third highest with $4,014 and trustees Laurie Larsen, Charlene Dobie and Terry Allen each claimed between $1,700 and $2,650. Trustees Pam Glass and Ijaz Chatta came in with the lowest at $911 and $287 respectively. Chatta was not re-elected during last year’s election, and his expenses cover the final six months of his tenure as a trustee. According to the information provided in

the report, expenses include “travel costs, memberships, tuition, relocation, vehicle leases, extraordinary hiring expenses and registration fees.” The report also detailed how much Shawn Wilson the district spent on employee wages, of which $213,099 was spent on trustee remuneration. Other district employee wages, including teachers and management, came to $432.3 million for the year, bringing the total spent on wages to $435.5 million for the school year. The year prior, employee wages were $10 million less at $425.4 million. On top of employee wages, the district spent $160 million on goods and services, including $52 million to the British Columbia Pension Corporation. Other expenditures include construction, health insurance and education equipment.

New book highlights the ironies of politics InTheHouse Keith Baldrey

A

new book on a pivotal time in B.C. history is an excellent guide for how a government can ensure it won’t survive, no matter how good its intentions. And even though the book is about the NDP government of the 1970s, one assumes current NDP leader Adrian Dix realizes it contains lessons he won’t want to repeat if he forms government next spring. The book – The Art of the Impossible: Dave Barrett and the NDP in Power 19721975 – paints a picture of a government on a frantic roller-coaster ride, eager to fulfill ambitions that had lingered for decades and wanting to do so as quickly as possible. The authors, Rod Mickleburgh and Geoff Meggs, provide a sympathetic account of Barrett’s wild ride. While mindful of the historic

legacy of his government, they don’t sugarcoat the sense of near-chaos, poor planning and lack of strategy that ultimately doomed Barrett’s administration. There’s no question the NDP government of the 1970s established a rich and enduring legacy of landmark legislation that changed B.C. for the better in so many areas of society. The list is a long one: protection of agricultural land, a modern and fair labour code, a provincial ambulance service, public auto insurance, community colleges, a legislature question period, neighbourhood pubs and Pharmacare. The NDP also banned the strap in schools and abolished pay toilets. In all, they passed more than 350 bills in three years at a breathtaking average rate of two bills a week. But in their rush to do so much, they made many missteps. The Barrett government picked fights everywhere, including with

their own supporters, many of whom were blind to the realities of government and what it took to get reelected. And Barrett contributed in a great way to the polarization of B.C. politics, which ultimately worked against him and the NDP in the years following. After his defeat in 1975, Barrett fought two more elections against Social Credit premier Bill Bennett and lost each time. Polarization pitted the NDP against a larger pool of voters united against them, thus ensuring their loss. The Art of the Impossible (recommended reading, by the way) also shows how much B.C.’s political culture has changed since the early to mid-1970s, and here is where the lessons for Dix – and for Premier Christy Clark as well – come in. First, the organized labour movement is a

shadow of its former self. Barrett had to deal with powerful private sector union leaders who threatened to bring down his government after he legislated more than 50,000 striking workers back on the job. In fact, it can be argued much of that labour movement deserted the NDP in the 1975 election, which was akin to cutting off their nose to spite their face, as the Social Credit government was far less friendly to its interests. But labour no longer has that kind of political might. Much of its power now resides among public sector unions, which are more narrowly focused on their own plight. This removes a potential headache for Dix should he become premier. He won’t face the same kind of pressure from the labour movement that kept Barrett

up late at nights. Another thing that jumps out of The Art of the Impossible is how the forest industry has also almost disappeared from the political arena. Back then, of course, forestry was the dominant industry in this province and even talk of work stoppages in it were huge events. Union leaders like Jack Munro and Art Gruntman wielded considerable political power. Today, the industry has suffered thousands of job losses and simply doesn’t have the financial or political clout that played such a prominent role during Barrett’s time. Neither Dix nor Clark shows any signs of emulating Barrett’s approach to governing. Dix keeps stressing he has a “modest” agenda for government, and has

repeatedly said he doesn’t intend to bring in a lot of legislation should he gain power. As for Clark, she seems genuinely disinterested (if not contemptuous) of the legislature and the legislated process itself. But given Barrett’s penchant for polarizing the electorate, it’s interesting that it’s not the current NDP leader who seeks to do that. Dix is trying to turn down the temperature and play less partisan politics. But Clark is the one trying to polarize everything, to make the choice next May a stark one between left and right with nothing in the middle. It is Clark who is behaving more like Barrett. Ah, such are the ironies of B.C. politics! Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global BC Keith.Baldrey@globalnews.ca

Simpson’s arrogance on casino is shameful The Editor, Re: “Casino fears are unfounded,” the Now, Nov. 15. I find Beau Simpson’s column totally arrogant. How can Simpson say that casino fears are unfounded? There are many residents living in this vicinity who are very upset about this proposal. They chose to live in this area, (I am one of these residents) for the quietness, comforts of this neighbourhood, less traffic, views of Mt. Baker, trees and nature – a rural life. We did not choose to look at, or be so close to, this monster of a complex. Can you imagine what guests will think, when they enter B.C. at the Peace Arch crossing and the first view they get of “green” B.C. is a massive casino sign and an ugly seven-storey parkade? They will think they are entering a mini Vegas. While I do, unfortunately, realize that casinos are now a part of our society, this location just isn’t right. There is plenty of industrial land, already cleared in the area of 192nd Street and 32nd Avenue, where Gateway can build at their heart’s content, without a house in sight. They can build a 10-storey parkade at that location, including their monster of a casino complex and no one would be bothered. Oh yes, the other social reasons for not wanting a casino are all quite obvious and a lot of those legitimate reasons were discussed at the last community meeting, Nov. 14 at the Pacific Inn. There were about 430 people in attendance, with many speakers giving their reasons why a casino at this location would be a break up of this great community. Our real estate would be devalued and our wonderful neighbours will sell and move away. Simpson mentioned in his column that he does not gamble, (which is great) – but that it would be nice for him to have a another venue for his band and to take his wife dancing. I am sure there are other spots in the Lower Fraser Valley that he has not tried without wishing for this massive concrete jungle to be built. This concrete jungle’s big strobe lights will be reflected every night into the sky, and apart from ruining our enjoyment of a

residential neighbours? And what portion of your land will you keep in a “natural” state? Finally, can you address concerns about property value of surrounding residences? Zoe M, Surrey

Good luck getting gig at new casino, Beau

A proposed new casino has sparked a heated debate with readers in Surrey. dark sky for sleeping, it will negatively affect migrating and local birds and wildlife as well as the horse and llama breeding farm adjacent to the development. The widening of rural 168th Street will turn it into a busy thoroughfare to accommodate the thousands of extra vehicles going to and from the casino complex, with the possibility of freight trucks using it as a convenient shortcut to 16th Avenue. This complete change of infrastructure is shameful to our environment – and all for the sake of a casino. Michael Pohlmann, Surrey

Simpson is right but some concerns valid The Editor, Re: “Casino fears are unfounded,” the Now, Nov. 15. I totally agree with Beau Simpson regarding many of the concerns about the casino. I don’t agree that nothing good can come out of gambling; however, I do believe it will be imperative for Gateway and the City of Surrey to consider legitimate

concerns voiced by residents about the development. I am neither in support nor opposed to this project just yet. Here is some of what I submitted to the Gateway forum: I am not opposed to this project; however, at this time nor am in support of this project. I find this location a strange place to put this type of complex given its lack of proximity to other amenities and the residential land surrounding the site. I do also appreciate more amenities as I sometimes feel isolated, though I love my Sunday drives “in the country” and would hate to see this disappear. I think with the right type of planning this complex could be great, but without addressing legitimate concerns this could also be a disaster. Transportation – we have no local public transit and taxi cabs are incredibly difficult to get late on Friday and Saturday night, if not impossible. How are people to get home after a night out? And what type of consideration will there be for local residents who enjoy going for walks and have to contend with increased traffic as there are no designated pedestrian walkways? What measures will Gateway, BCLC, and the City of Surrey take to ensure there are transit options to the casino? How will you deal with the transitional zones with landscaping to protect your

Re: “Casino fears are unfounded,” the Now, Nov. 15. Beau, Beau, Beau. You say “my band will have a new place to play,” so I am writing this as one musician to another. You must know that unless you are Dal Richards’ lost love child or have polaroids, you wont get a sniff of work from that casino. You also say it means not having to take one’s spouse out of Surrey to celebrate a birthday. Have you seen the entertainment lineup at other casinos? It’s legion stuff with higher prices – April Wine, Burton Cummings and tribute bands until there’s no tomorrow. I’m against the casino, not because of the gaming, but because of the development in what is becoming a rare commodity in the area – green space, which will soon be the Highway 1 median just east of Hope. I’m now getting off my soapbox whilst removing tongue from cheek. Bill Dixon, Surrey

How would Simpson like casino in his yard? The Editor, Re: “Casino fears are unfounded,” the Now, Nov. 15. Beau Simpson: please do not write an article which is biased to one side. A newspaper is supposed to report the facts. How would you like a monster casino complex in your front yard? E. Wilson, Surrey

Boos, catcalls hammer proponents of new casino at South Surrey meeting Christopher Poon

Now staff Twitter @questionchris

It was the third and final communityorganized meeting regarding the proposed South Surrey casino and while the event was aimed at getting people the information they need to make a decision on the project, it was clear most attendees had already made up their minds. Hosted by the Surrey Ratepayers Association at the Pacific Inn hotel in South Surrey Wednesday night, more than 300 members of the public came to hear what various representatives of the proposal had to say. In attendance were representatives from BCLC, Gateway Casinos, First Nations and the City of Surrey, though no Surrey council members were present. Additionally, Coun. Helen Fathers of White Rock attended, as did representatives on behalf of MLAs Gordon Hogg of SurreyWhite Rock and Stephanie Cadieux of Surrey-Panorama. However, while the meeting was billed as an “information session” for people to have their questions answered, it quickly turned into a steady stream of opponents voicing their opposition to the project. “I don’t know about you, but I’m sick and tired of hearing some of the things I’m hearing from the bureaucratic spin doctors on how blessed we are to be having this casino in our community,” said Russ Buchanan. “If I was a hotel or restaurant operator in the area, I would be very concerned, and I wonder what happened that brought us to a place where we’re even considering this monster being put in your community to destroy your neighbourhood.” While stakeholders such as Jim Lightbody of the BCLC and James Chen of Gateway Casinos attempted to present numbers from a past study from 2007 showing how crime actually had gone down in Surrey as a result of casinos, they were subjected to catcalls and boos from the audience.

Jim Lightbody from BCLC faces a tough crowd Wednesday night in South Surrey. (Photo: CHRISTOPHER POON) “Those are the facts,” said Lightbody, in response to an audience member saying the stats weren’t true. Chen also noted that an open house held last week yielded roughly 160 response forms submitted to Gateway, of which more than half were in favour of the casino. Chen’s figure was met with outrage by the audience. Terry McNiece, president of the South Surrey Ratepayers Association, had to remind the audience to be civil several times over the course of the evening, and that the representatives were attending on their own time. Others took the meeting as an

opportunity to speak out about possible links between the 16th Avenue on-ramp and the casino’s potential to raise the value of Gateway Casinos were the private company to ever go public. However, despite the general mood of disapproval from the audience, there were some residents with genuine questions for the stakeholders. One man from the audience asked if Surrey taxpayers would be liable for costs of things like sewers and roads that would have to be built for the complex if the casino did not end up being the moneymaker for Surrey it’s being touted as. To that, Ron Hintsche, manager of planning for the south of Surrey said, “No, Surrey residents would not be on the hook.” Hintsche added that the costs for any sewage/road services would be fronted by Gateway. A woman named Pam wondered why the First Nations were being so vocal about the lack of consultation and their refusal to take a stance on the issue. She wondered if residents would rather have a casino put in White Rock on the beach where they would have no say, as they do not own the land. In the end, McNiece advised those in attendance to submit their thoughts to Surrey council, as it had the final say on whether or not the proposal would proceed. McNiece asked everyone to attend a Nov. 26 council meeting to show their disproval for the gaming application that is set to come before council at that time, and again at tentative Dec. 10 public hearing on the application, if council moves it forward. cpoon@thenownewspaper.com

About 40 kindergarteners from Erma Stephenson Elementary in Fraser Heights designed Christmas tree decorations recently for the Season of Trees event at the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel. Fifteen or so Christmas trees are now on display at the hotel. On Nov. 29, the trees will be auctioned off at a wine and cheese celebration, with proceeds going to the Sources Community Resources Society. “They really were thrilled – and so were we – to be part of this event,” said Serena Looi, one of two kindergarten teachers at the school. Looi said the mother of one of her students presented the class with the idea of decorating one of the trees. The kids immediately loved the idea and they made the decorations during arts and crafts. “She does a lot of fundraising out in

I wanted to bring it to Surrey,” she said. “The Sheraton’s such a great venue and it’s a great way to celebrate the holiday season.” Sources currently has 13 businesses sponsoring the trees and hopes the auction will pull in between $7,500 and $10,000. “We have no idea what a bid on a tree will bring in, so it’s a new area for us,” she said. Money raised from the auction – and from the $50 tickets to attend the wine and cheese event – will go toward various Sources programs. Tickets can be bought online at sourcesbc.ca. Looi added that she’s planning a field trip with her students to the hotel so they can see their work on display. “We’ll probably be part of it next year,” she said. “They really enjoyed it, and so did the teachers. It was a good way to start Christmas – in November.” Keeping with the holiday spirit, Surrey Libraries is holding a live tree decorating contest, with over $500 in prizes from Potter’s.

Now staff Twitter @carolyncooke1

It’s time to go shopping for a couple of extra toys because the second annual Stuff the Bus event is coming up soon. Comfort Inn Hotel & Suites is hosting the twoday event again, with hopes of beating last year’s record when generous donors filled an entire bus with gifts in 24 hours. The idea is for people to drop off new and gently used items that will be delivered to the Surrey Christmas Bureau. Among the items accepted are new and gently used toys, clothing and household items for under-privileged children and families who will receive the items through the Christmas Bureau program.

Alice Higgs named winner of challenge Carolyn Cooke

Higgs, a mom of two who lives in South Surrey and commutes to her desk job in downtown Vancouver, said her success was due to making lots of small but sustainable changes to her daily routines. “I think in the past one of my biggest hurdles has always been exercising consistently. In this particular challenge there were days when I thought, ‘God I don’t want to do this,’ but in the end I did six ‘hard’ workouts and then on my leisurely

The votes are in and Alice Higgs came out the winner for the second annual Be Active Challenge hosted by the City of Surrey. She said she lost eight and a half pounds and about 11 centimetres during the month-long challenge. “I was really happy to see some of those changes,” she said.

day I did a much more leisurely activity. “I worked out every single day and that was a huge change,” said Higgs. Each team member also had a nutritional tour, learned to read food labels and tried out new foods and new recipes. “It was the holistic thing of having exercise and the nutritional component – all those changes make really big differences at the end.” Among the unexpected benefits of her participation in the challenge, Higgs said her

two daughters now tend to choose activities instead of food treats for rewards and she was surprised to see a number of friends, family and coworkers inspired to also make healthier choices and take up exercise too. “All the changes that I’ve made in the last bit are possible for anyone as long as they’re planning and being mindful. You just have to make it work in your life,” she said.

The Surrey Board of Trade has committed to helping to fund the Ronald McDonald Family Room at Surrey Memorial Hospital. Anita Huberman, CEO of SBoT, made the official announcement at the Surrey Business Excellence Awards last week. “We are here for business to not to make money but also to make Surrey a great place to live,” said Huberman. “And in our small way, as a business organization, we are launching this partnership because we believe that by supporting families when they need it helps our businesses and Surrey.” A Ronald McDonald Family Room is an area set aside inside a medical facility serving pediatric patients to serve as a quiet rest area for family members of children admitted to the hospital for treatment. It is a home-like atmosphere equipped with a kitchen, shower, laundry facilities, a dining area and internet access. To contribute to the SMH Family Room, contact Richard Pass, CEO, Ronald McDonald House at 604-736-2957.

Irradiation and the fight against food bacteria

S

hannon Lambie had never planted garlic before. So when she asked what she thought was a simple question, she got an answer that surprised her. As a volunteer with the Edible Garden Project in North Vancouver, Lambie was recently visiting Loutet Farm with local elementary school students. The group was learning about garlic: its lifecycle, how to cook it, and how it grows. After learning how garlic can grow from garlic bulbs planted in soil, Lambie asked one of the Loutet farmers if any garlic clove from storebought garlic would work for planting. The answer was no. She was told most of the non-organic garlic bulbs sold in stores have been irradiated and so do not sprout. “I was genuinely surprised and concerned that I didn’t know this about our food,” says Lambie, who is completing her master’s degree in International Studies at SFU and is focused on community food production, particularly urban agriculture. After some online research, she posted a blog on the Edible Garden Project website noting some of her concerns about irradiated food, including that the process contributes to the industrialization of the food system; reduces nutrient content; creates radiolytic products with unknown long-term effects; and it is not 100 per cent effective. “I just thought maybe other people might want to know too,” she says of posting the blog. Health Canada notes on its website that food irradiation is a method of preserving food by exposing it to radiation energy to kill harmful bacteria. It is used to prevent foodborne illness and spoilage and to increase shelf life. Health Canada says food irradiation is safe for consumers. Lambie says she does believe Health Canada’s claim that food irradiation is probably not very dangerous, but “it might be,” she says, noting the effects are not 100per-cent known.

Kevin Allen is an assistant professor of food microbiology in the Food, Nutrition and Health program at UBC. He specializes in foodborne pathogens and their effects on Canada’s food chain. Allen says irradiation was developed more than 100 years ago and extensive research has shown it to be safe. While it does reduce the nutrients in some foods, the reduction is not significant and is less than traditional thermal methods, he notes. “When it’s done properly and when food has been exposed to appropriate irradiation levels there’s absolutely no risk to consumers, and, in fact, the food that results is microbiologically more stable and microbiologically safe,” he says. “The biggest issue with irradiation is not that the food isn’t safe because that’s absolutely not the case. The biggest issue is that consumers aren’t willing to accept it. They’re worried

by Rosalind Duane

that their food is going to glow, that it’s going to be radioactive, and that it’s going to cause them harm.” Irradiated food is exposed to certain doses of the energy source. The length of the irradiation affects the dose and the number of microorganisms destroyed. “There is a flip side to that: if food is over-irradiated you can generate what are called radiolytic products and it can represent a risk to the public, but in facilities that do this they certainly use a controlled process that prevents that from happening,” says Allen. In Canada, irradiation is used on some produce, including some potatoes (to prevent them from sprouting). A lot of other countries use irradiation for insect control on many exported foods. Canada imports a lot of spices from Asia that are irradiated. “There is a labeling requirement for foods

that are irradiated,” explains Allen. If 10 per cent of the product has been irradiated then the label has to have a Radura symbol on it, but spices are not identified as irradiated mainly because they are a small constituent of what is used in the cooking process so are not over that 10-per-cent bar. Canada is connected to the globalized food supply and that has been a source of foodborne disease. However, it’s not just the importation of food that is responsible for foodborne disease, notes Allen. The recent recall of beef from the Alberta-based XL Foods plant due to E. coli contamination is a good example, he notes. Canada does not use irradiation on meat, but Allen says irradiation would have made that beef safer before it was sold. “We simply don’t use it for meat because consumers aren’t willing to accept the technology,” he says. “And it’s really too bad because irradiation is a really attractive intervention from a food-safety perspective.” Allen says it has been estimated that if Canada were to irradiate its food supply it would reduce foodborne disease by up to 25-50 per cent. Consumers play an active role in food safety as well, especially in how they handle food. “They have to do what they can in their home just in case we have failures upstream,” says Allen. “We have to do what we can to protect ourselves. And what we really hope is that the people supplying us with food have done their job and that the government regulations are appropriate and will help contribute to a safe food supply.” Lambie agrees there are things consumers can do. “I think it’s kind of sad when people don’t know how the food they’re eating got to them, where it came from and what it went through to get to them. Food irradiation is just one of those issues and there’s a lot more,” she says. “I think it would be really great if everyone could be mindful of the whole process.” ●

Introducing the SPA493

Little price difference found between grocery stores and farmers’ markets

I

A

PHOTO MIKE WAKEFIELD

t has been 25 years in the making, but apple lovers have a new variety to sink their teeth into. The new apple variety, named Salish, was introduced at UBC’s annual apple festival in early October. Previously known as SPA493, the Salish apple was created from a crosspollination made in the early 1980s between Splendour and Gala varieties. A press release from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada noted Salish is a medium-sized apple with thin skin. The texture is crispy, firm and tangy. Its appearance is 80 per cent solid cherryred blush over a yellow base colour. The release notes that the Salish apple variety is Canadian and non-genetically modified. The development of the new variety was led by Agriculture and AgriFood Canada researchers at the Pacific Agri-Food Centre in Summerland, working closely with the Okanagan Plant Improvement Corporation to test it with growers. Salish is grown by orchardists in the Okanagan Valley and is harvested in mid to late October. ●

recent press release from the B.C. Association of Farmers’ Markets notes that a study by Seattle University between 2003-2011 found organic fruits and vegetables in season are either cheaper or of equal value at a farmers’ market. The B.C. Association of Farmers’ Markets is looking at how farmers’ market prices compare with grocery stores. Preliminary findings in six B.C. communities indicate that conventional and organic products at farmers’ markets are the same price or less than at grocery stores. In Vancouver, 11 out of 15 conventional and organic fruits and vegetables compared were the same price or less. Products were compared at three major grocery chains and the majority had very few B.C. products on their shelves despite being in the middle of B.C.’s prime agricultural season. Only B.C.owner Save-On-Foods carried a decent selection of B.C. product. Farmers’ markets often have more organic selection and this can make them seem expensive, but the price of equivalent products is generally the same or less than in grocery stores. ●

Envision Angel Trees ready for Santa helpers Carolyn Cooke

Now staff Twitter @carolyncooke1

Angel Trees now grace each of the Envision Financial locations in the area and everyone is invited to drop by to take an ornament or two to ensure a brighter Christmas for the less fortunate. “The statistics really speak to the need for this program,” said Susan Byrom, manager of corporate citizenship at Envision Financial. “One in five children in B.C. live under the poverty line and this year alone, B.C. food banks served over 28,000 kids. That’s why we’re so proud of our Angel Tree program. By participating, local residents have the opportunity to make the holidays brighter for families, children and seniors in our communities.” The program supports local charities in each of the communities where Envision has locations. In Surrey, the beneficiaries are the Surrey Food Bank and Surrey Christmas Bureau; in Delta, they are Deltassist, Reach Child and Youth Development Society and South Delta Food Bank; and in White Rock, the Sources’ Food Bank and the Salvation Army of White Rock/South Surrey. These organizations will then disburse the food and items collected to needy clients.

This is the third year for the Angel Trees, an initiative that has grown larger each year. “In 2011 our Angel Tree program gave 600 Christmas gifts to residents in our local communities and this year we want to give even more,” said Byrom. Members of the public are encouraged to take an angel from the tree and return it with a new, unwrapped gift before Saturday, Dec. 8. Each tree has ornaments with descriptors of local people, such as “Boy age 12,” “Senior Gentleman” or “Girl age 14.” The idea is to take one or more ornaments and return with appropriate gifts for each. This year, there are also tin can ornaments to be returned with donations of cash or nonperishable food items. All of the items and money raised in each community will stay in that community. As well, Envision is aiming to fill 500 hampers through the program. You can click on a YouTube video put together by Envision about the Angel Tree program, and for each view, the credit union will donate $1 to the program, up to $10,000, which will then be distributed to the program’s community partners. See it at www.youtube.com/envisionfinancial.

A good meat thermometer’s worth its weight in gold OnCooking Chef Dez

O

ver the years, I have discovered many simple methods that will help to easily perfect the meals that we serve. Some are so obvious, like a meat thermometer, it is bizarre when I come across a household that does not have one. Always during the approach of traditional holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter I seem to get bombarded with questions about how long a turkey should cook. Although I appreciate the opportunity for helping people in the kitchen, the answer to me always seems so obvious that it is surprising more people don’t already have the solution. Not only will a simple ovenproof meat thermometer help to

save your turkey dinner, it will also be the resolution to mastering the doneness of a myriad of meat roasting recipes. I have owned my current meat thermometer for probably close to 15 years now and it is still going strong. Not bad for an investment of only a few dollars. Be certain that you are purchasing that is heat resistant (oven proof) so that it can be left in the piece of meat for the entire cooking process. If an instant read thermometer is used instead, and the temperature is checked at a number of intervals, valued juices will be lost from the meat with each puncture. One of the most important goals in cooking meat is to keep it moist while still reaching the desired doneness. The area of a turkey where the thermometer should be inserted is the thickest part of the inner thigh without touching the bone. A stuffed turkey should be done when it reads 180F (82C), and unstuffed at 170F

Time table for turkeys WEIGHT 3 - 3.5kg (6.5-8 lbs) 3.5 – 4.5kg (8-10 lbs) 4.5 – 5.5kg (10-12 lbs) 5.5 – 7kg (12-15.5 lbs) 7 – 10kg (15.5-22 lbs)

UNSTUFFED 2.5 - 2.75 hours 2.75 – 3 hours 3 – 3.25 hours 3.25 – 3.5 hours 3.5 – 4 hours

(77C). You should also notice that the legs move easily when twisted and the juices run clear. There is a difference in these two temperature readings because a stuffed turkey is denser, and the stuffing needs to reach a high enough temperature to kill any bacteria present. This being said, I do realize people appreciate approximate cooking times to effectively coordinate side dishes to the main course, and it is for this reason only I will provide guidelines for you. Do not use these parameters as your main indication of

A Holiday G ift

STUFFED 3 – 3.25 hours 3.25 – 3.5 hours 3.5 – 3.75 hours 3.75 – 4 hours 4 – 4.5 hours

doneness, but rather as an additional plan to your trusty meat thermometer. For example, if you cook your turkey in a 325F (160C) oven, then allow for the approximation in time as detailed in the above table. There are many factors that will play havoc on the final accuracy of the cooking time, such as for example: the temperature of the turkey prior to roasting, the temperature of the stuffing (if used), or maybe your oven is running a bit hotter or colder than the set temperature. Where you decide to purchase

your meat thermometer is not important, as they are available almost everywhere. What is important is that you get one and enjoy the benefits of it for years to come. Dear Chef Dez: I heard that it important to let a (turkey) “rest” when it comes out of the oven, before carving it. Is this true, and why? Brad B., Abbotsford Dear Brad: This is true. Actually it is true with all cuts of meat. The “resting” period gives the meat time to adjust coming from the extreme heat to room temperature. During the cooking process, the high heat causes the atoms in the molecular structure of the meat to move at a high rate of speed. If the meat is cut into soon after it has been removed from the oven, grill or pan, it will lose a large degree of its vital juices that keep it moist and flavourful.

Eagles fall short in showdown with Chiefs Michael Booth

Now staff Twitter @boothnow

The Surrey Eagles came up one goal short in a showdown between two of the hottest teams in the B.C. Hockey League Friday night atSouth Surrey Arena. The Eagles’ six-game points streak came to an end with a narrow 2-1 loss to the streaking Chilliwack Chiefs. Surrey missed on a chance to pull even with the

Chiefs atop the BCHL’s Mainland Division and then fell further behind when the Chiefs ran their win streak to six games with a win over Coquitlam Saturday. Surrey is now six points behind Chilliwack and tied for second with the Prince George Spruce Kings. Despite the setback, Eagles coach Matt Erhart said there were plenty of positives for his squad. “It was probably the best onetwo match-up of the season in our

division and it was a great game,” Erhart said. “Both goalies played great and at times they were better than us and other times we were better than them. It ended up a 2-1 game so clearly it was close right to the end.” With goalies Mitch Gillam (Chilliwack) and Michael Santaguida (Surrey) playing at the top of their games with a combined 72 saves on 75 shots, the contest turned on special teams. Chilliwack

scored a power-play goal in the final two minutes of the first period and then added a short-handed marker a minute into the middle frame to take a commanding 2-0 lead. Surrey answered with a thirdperiod goal by Demico Hannoun, but despite outshooting the Chiefs 17-12 in the final frame, the Eagles were unable to beat Gillam for the equalizer. “Playing five-on-five we won the game 1-0 so that made special

teams even more important,” Erhart said after his team came up empty on six power play opportunities. “When you’re hot you get the bounces and we didn’t get the bounces that night. We have been getting bounces in other games though so this was just one of those games.” The Eagles hit the road for two games in Prince George this weekend.

Seahawks soar over Valley Firehawks defend Valley title The Seaquam Seahawks extended their reign over the Fraser Valley’s senior girls AAA volleyball landscape. Despite some periods of disinterested play, the Seahawks knocked off the MEI Eagles 3-1 to successfully defend their AAA title at Fraser Valley finals at the Langley Events Centre last week. The Seahawks have not lost a match to a class AAA team in almost two years, a streak that includes the 2011 provincial championships and now back-to-back Fraser Valley championships. Despite their dominance in the Valley, Seaquam coach Todd Clarke said his team did not perform at their best against MEI. “It was a tough match; it was like we were going uphill all game,” Clarke said. “That’s what makes us good though — even when we’re not at our best we find a way to win. MEI played really well and to be honest, I thought they played better than us. With that said, we won the match 3-1 and we could have won it 3-0. We’re tough to beat and while we may win ugly sometimes, it’s still a win and we’ll take it.” The MEI speed bump in the final was the only rough road encountered by the Seahawks in the Valley tourney. After breezing past Mountain Secondary in

their Valley opener, the Seahawks swept Brookswood in the semifinals before taking on MEI in the title game. This year’s format brought all of the Valley finals to the Langley Events Centre for one night of championship volleyball. Clarke said the change of venue, while warmly received by coaches and players, might have contributed to some of the uneven play. “Both teams were kind of sloppy at times,” he said. “Playing in a different venue where none of the kids had played before can be a little intimidating. The kids liked it there though; it’s a really nice venue.” Seaquam won the first game and was comfortably ahead 20-11 in the second game only to watch as MEI stormed back to earn a 25-23 win. Seaquam then cranked up their game and won the next two games handily to take the match 3-1. Seaquam middle blocker Nicola Laniuk was named tournament MVP, while outside hitters Mandelyn Erikson and Amy Davidson were both named to the all-star team. Seaquam now turns their attention to the B.C. championships beginning Nov. 29 at Crofton House. Seaquam is expected to hold down the No. 1 seed for the provincials.

With a second consecutive Fraser Valley title in their back pocket, the Fraser Heights Firehawks are focused on a much bigger, bluer banner to hang in the school gym. The Firehawks lived up to their No. 1 ranking by rolling through the Fraser Valley tourney and successfully defending the title they won as a team loaded with Grade 11s last year. Fraser Heights coach James Ahn said last year’s team was excited to win the Valley but the 2012 Firehawks have higher aspirations. “It was good to win the Fraser Valleys and it was good to repeat as champions, but we have a bigger goal in mind this year,” he said. “To us, the Fraser Valley championship is more of a stepping stone to where we want to go. “Last year it was a little different because we were still testing and proving ourselves. This year we’ve had so much success and we know that if we execute like we should, then we should be able to beat any team.” Fraser Heights opened the Valleys by sweeping aside Yale in straight games before dispatching Elgin Park 3-1 in the semifinals. That set up an all-Surrey showdown between the Firehawks and their South Surrey rivals from Earl Marriott in the title game. Earl Marriott dropped the first game but then stunned the Firehawks by winning the

next two to put the defending champs on the brink. Undeterred, the Firehawks stormed back to win the final two games 25-17, 15-9 to take the match and the banner 3-2. “It was definitely not our best effort but we did find a way to squeak out a win,” Ahn said. “We’ve been ranked No. 1 all year, we won the big UBC tournament, we won the big Thompson River University tournament and we’ve handled ourselves well. Against Earl Marriott I think the boys kind of got ahead of themselves a bit.”

This year we’ve had so much success and we know that if we execute like we should, then we should be able to beat any team. Right-side hitter William Dichuk was named tournament MVP. Power hitter Irvan Brar and setter Josiah Ahn were selected to the all-star team. Coach Ahn added power hitter Vadim Chernenko merited all-star consideration for his unselfish digging to keep rallies going.

Golf report I don’t even know if I have been on a cut line for a job, let alone play the pressure of a cut line at any sports level. I am a jock watcher rather than player. B.C.’s own Jim Rutledge, on the other hand, knows all about the pressure of making it. Rutledge, from Victoria, will once more play on the Champions Tour after taking one of only five spots available at the Champions Tour School. He’ll be the only one carrying the Canadian flag on that tour, with Rod Spittle of Ontario failing to make the grade. It wasn’t easy. Rutledge had to birdie the first extra hole of a playoff to grab that fifth and last spot. It’s a tough game on the older guys’ tour with only the top 30 keeping their card, unless you have a strong history on the PGA Tour. Once you’re at the top, it’s tougher to stay there. Rutledge will take some time at home in Victoria and then it’s back to practising and playing for real by the end of January. The thrill and the heartache is not over for those still alive at the PGA’s Qschool. Only seven Canadians have made it to the PGA’s upcoming final tournament of Qschool – sixrounds of torture starting Nov. 28 at PGA West in La Quinta California. Here’s the good news; two of those players are from British Columbia: Roger Sloan of Merritt and Adam Hadwin of Abbotsford are the final two left standing from B.C. Sloan worked his way through the first two rounds and Hadwin was exempt to the final round as a result of his finish on the Web.Com tour. He barely missed making it on the money list and now it gets a lot tougher. Twenty-one Canadians started the journey. Joining our two from B.C. in the final tournament are: Mitch Evanecz, Red Deer, Alta. Brad Fritsch, Manotick, Ont. Matt Hill, Sarnia, Richard Scott, Kingsville, and Ryan Yip of Calgary. Fritsch already has his card from the Web tour but is hoping to improve his PGA status in this tournament. Close to home, Nick Taylor of Abbotsford and Eugene Wong of North Vancouver – who came into tournament’s second round with high hopes – fell short. Stuart Anderson of Sooke had his best round of his tournament but he too fell just short. Three Canadian women are still alive for the final round at the LPGA’s Qschool. Sue Kim, Langley, Kirby Dreher, Fort St John and Samantha Richdale, Kelowna, will carry Canada’s hopes. Only eight Canadian women made it to the final stage – three are from B.C. – now that’s an aces effort. You can reach me at preimer@canwest.com

‘I want to teach young deaf children how to play hockey’

Deaf tourney opens teen’s eyes

A week at the Canada Deaf Games in May was an inspirational turning point for Kuvin Sadher. Last month he earned a place on North Delta’s midget B1 rep hockey team and he now aspires to represent Canada at the Deaflympics. Jacob Zinn Photo

North Delta’s Kuvin Sadher battled through frustations to play the game he loved

Michael Booth Staff Writer

H

ockey is a game most Canadians take as a birthright. We grow up loving the game and immerse ourselves in it from a young age. Video cameras record children on skates for the first time; parents arise at ungodly hours to take their kids to early morning practices; and most youngsters fantasize about hearing the roar of the crowd after scoring an important goal. Now imagine how these heartwarming Canadian traditions would seem if every step of the way was an ordeal. What if just balancing on skates took all of

your focus; if you couldn’t understand what the coach was teaching in those early morning practices; if you couldn’t hear the roar of the crowd? Imagine the challenges faced every day by deaf kids trying to play the game they love? Kuvin Sadher knows. The North Delta teen has been in love with hockey ever since he was a toddler. He started playing the game when he was six and immediately ran into a big problem: skating involves balance, a sense that is centred in the ears. Born deaf, Sadher had to teach himself how to stay upright on the blades, but to do so, he had to focus on the task, making it difficult to pick up other skills like passing and shooting and stopping. He kept working hard, but like most kids,

he says the most discouraging part about learning the game was the fact there were more practices than games. “The hardest part was learning to skate and balancing,” the 17-year-old Burnsview Secondary student recalls. “I don’t know when I finally stopped thinking about balancing. It came slowly. “Yes, I was frustrated at times. It was always practices and no games. My dad pushed me and supported me, telling me not to give up. When we finally got to play a game it was great. When I first stepped on the ice I was so excited; it was electrifying.” see ‘THE WHOLE’, page B3

Sadher has a cochlear implant, a surgically inserted electronic device that helps him discern some of the things going on around him. The device creates an unnatural sound that can help Sadher understand some speech in a classroom setting, but in the chaos of a hockey rink, it is of limited use. He can hear whistles, but almost everything else is lost in a jumble of noise. “When I have my cochlear on I am fine, but it’s not clear because the game is loud and echoes make it very difficult to hear. When my battery is dead, then I have to watch other players to see if the play is stopped or if there’s a line change. I am very visual; it’s my main sense.” Despite the challenges he faced every time he laced up his skates, Sadher persisted in chasing the hockey dream. He played at the house league level in the North Delta Minor Hockey Association system beginning in novice and moving through atom, peewee and bantam. This past spring, Sadher discovered a new aspect of the game that opened a whole new world. After hearing about deaf hockey when he was still in elementary school, Sadher dreamed of being able to play his sport with players just like him. He inquired about joining the B.C. team when he was 14 but was discouraged to learn he had to be 16 to try out. In May of this year, Sadher was chosen to play with the B.C. Rockies at the Canadian Deaf Games in Edmonton. As one of the youngest players on a team made up primarily of players between the ages of 20 and 40, coaches were initially worried his slight build might make him susceptible to injury. Fortunately, his speed and agility quickly erased such concerns. “There’s always that threat but I don’t think it was that big of an issue,” says B.C. Rockies coach Jim Schuck. “Kuvin and the other young guys were fine because they are quicker, younger and faster so they can get out of the way.” For Sadher, the Edmonton trip opened his

I can’t wait for the next “ (Canada) games and I hope to make the Deaflympics team.

Kuvin Sadher

eyes to the full scope of the deaf community for the first time. Cochlear implants were banned at the event, so sign language ruled the day both on the ice and off. (In deaf hockey, strobe lights take the place of whistles to let players know when play has stopped.) Instead of being an outsider in a hearing world, Sadher was among people who understood exactly what challenges he faces every day. “It was awesome playing with deaf players,” Sadher says. “It was comforting and I felt at home. The level of communication was unbelievable. We just sat and chatted for

hours. I didn’t feel left out. “Everything was awesome there; it’s hard to describe it. It was the best feeling in my life and the best time. I can’t wait for the next (Canada) games and I hope to make the Deaflympics team. “That’s my goal now and I’ll be able to meet deaf people from around the world.” When he returned from Edmonton, Sadher spent the summer training with the Pacific Titans hockey program. The confidence he gained in Edmonton coupled with the hard work in the gym paid off when he made North Delta’s midget B1 rep team in September. “A deaf player on a minor hockey rep team is quite rare,” says Schuck, who also coaches rep hockey in Richmond. “In fact, for a deaf player to make a team like that is a feat unto itself. When a deaf player makes a rep team, they’re doing it by following along and watching what everybody else is doing. A deaf player’s ability to read and react is better than most other players just because it has to be – they’ve learned to rely on visual information. I would love to see how far some of these guys could go with proper instruction in ways that they can understand fully what the coach is trying to teach.” The significance of ascending to the rep level in a hearing world was not lost on Sadher. All of the years of work overcoming obstacles his peers would never pause to consider were suddenly worthwhile and he is extremely grateful to the North Delta Minor Hockey Association for giving him the opportunity to grow as a hockey player. With that said, Sadher credits a spring week in Edmonton among deaf players from across Canada for opening his eyes to possibilities in the rink and beyond. “The whole experience gave me the drive to challenge more in life,” he says. “I want to teach young deaf children how to play hockey. I can teach them in sign language, which w ill make them more comfortable and it’ll be more fun to learn.” Sadher adds confidently, “I strongly encourage other deaf kids to play. I did it.” mbooth@thenownewspaper.com

Boot drive

Surrey firefighters raise $10K for Muscular Dystrophy Surrey firefighters raised an amazing $10,000 this year in their annual boot drive. Boot drives were held at various locations around the city over the Sept. 28 to 30 weekend, including Guildford Town Centre, Costco and Walmart. To show their support for people with neuromuscular disorders, Surrey firefighter and Muscular Dystrophy Canada chair, Scott Johnson and the Surrey firefighters organized a community boot drive to raise awareness and funds to help “make muscles move.” A boot drive is a fundraising event where local Fire Fighters go out into the community and collect donations from the public, using a firefighter boot to collect those donations. Since 1954, Canadian firefighters have been helping Muscular Dystrophy Canada fight the battle against muscular dystrophy — a group of more than 150 types of neuromuscular disorders characterized by the wasting and progressive weakness of muscles. Over time, many people with neuromuscular disorders are unable to walk, speak or ultimately breathe. Some diseases are lifethreatening and, at present, there is no cure.

BullyWool Yarns and Fibers is a small business located in Anmore, BC. Owner Jordan Birk is committed to offering employment to disabled women.

The money raised by the Surrey firefighters will be presented in a formal cheque presentation to a local client, Justin Johal and his mother Kal, along with a representative from Muscular Dystrophy Canada. Justin is a 19-year-old Surrey resident who is affected by Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy. The funds raised by the Surrey firefighters will help Muscular Dystrophy Canada to improve the quality of life for people living with neuromuscular disorders, like Justin, by purchasing mobility equipment, providing support.

n our lives change happens. Sometimes it is planned and other times it is unexpected. Unexpected change makes us handle situations as they come up, but changes that are planned can be quite the process.

I realized that the first step was to advocate for myself because no one could help make changes unless I let them know what my wants and needs were. Emotions play a huge part in making changes and can sometimes stop us from making decisions about change. Fear, uncertainty and not wanting to hurt other people’s feel-

ings are some of the emotions that I dealt with when making the decision for change in my life. Once I dealt with the emotions, I realized that I needed to move forward with changes and I took the next step and spoke to the people in my life that could help me get started in making the changes that I wanted. Big or small, changes should be considered a personal accomplishment. Making change is a process that takes time and planning. Even though I didn’t know how things would turn out I knew I had to take the risk and be content with the fact that I tried and I would have no regrets. Regardless of the outcome it will always be a learning experience that helps us grow stronger in the end. I encourage everyone to become aware of your wants and needs to ensure a better quality of life. Be your own advocate for change. If we change nothing, nothing will change.

lthough disability has become more commonly seen in movies and media, the jury is still out whether depictions are accurate in educating audiences. The use of media in many forms has turned into a local trend in B.C. by an informed authority – people with disabilities themselves. After being invited to the premiere showing of an educational film called Try on a Disability, I knew I had to reveal the kinds of efforts people with disabilities are locally making in film, print and media. This film had been a five-year dream in the making for Zosia Ettenburg, president of Langley Pos-Abilities Society, a non-profit volunteer supported agency that helps to improve the quality of life for people with disabilities, including a variety of physical issues that require assistive devices. (You can reach them at 604-961-0117 for more information.) It opened the door to realistically teaching what it feels like to live with a wide variety of disabilities in this fast-paced world. It placed people without disabilities in situations where they performed daily tasks as though they had some of the physical or mental health issues that can cause so much isolation that is not commonly understood. From preparing a piece of toast with jam to trying to navigate a bathroom without proper accommodations, the participants expressed their frustration and anxiousness when the most simple tasks were such a challenge. Trying on the disability created this understanding and instant respect. Another media gem in the making is a documentary movie called Hope is not a Plan by Urban Sherpa Films, which is due out in

March 2013. The executive producer and writer, Paul Caune (executive director of Civil Rights Now!) has dedicated his life to ensuring civil rights are in the forefront of everything he does. “A film that exposes a fact hidden in plain sight: Most Canadians with disabilities can’t get their civil rights enforced.” A series of brave individuals with disabilities tell their own stories of bravery and expose the secret that “in spite of the global reputation of Canada for niceness, it routinely violates the freedom and dignity of its citizens with disabilities.”

Be a Fan Day

Special Olympics B.C. thanks law enforcement

Special Olympics British Columbia dedicated Oct. 25 as “Be a Fan Day” to thank the law enforcement community across the province for their unwavering support through the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR). Members of more than 20 law enforcement departments, detachments and agencies in B.C. participated in celebrations. The LETR brings together law enforcement personnel to raise awareness and funds for Special Olympics through events such as the annual Torch Run and numerous other initiatives throughout the year. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the LETR movement in Canada. The B.C. LETR has raised about $3.4 million for Special Olympics B.C. since 1990, helping SOBC expand to provide opportunities for more than 4,000 SOBC athletes in 55 communities. “For 25 years, the Canadian law enforcement personnel involved in the LETR have helped create opportunities for Special Olympics athletes to have life-changing experiences of empowerment, friendship and skill development through year-round sport programs and competitions,” said Pam Keith, chair of Special Olympics B.C. “Be a

Fan Day is an opportunity for Special Olympics B.C. to express our sincere appreciation for the inspiring law enforcement members throughout the province who regularly go above and beyond to help SOBC athletes and lead the way in demonstrating a spirit of inclusion and respect that strengthens the communities where they live and serve.” In support of Be a Fan Day, law enforcement personnel from a variety of agencies – including RCMP detachments around the province, the Abbotsford, Delta, New Westminster, Port Moody, Vancouver, Victoria, and West Vancouver police departments, and Transit Police – sported Special Olympics laces in their boots to show their support for Special Olympics. “LETR members make their communities more inclusive and inspiring places as they generously give their time to support Special Olympics,” said Rick Lucy, B.C. Law Enforcement Torch Run provincial director and deputy chief of the Abbotsford Police. “We’re honoured to continue to support Special Olympics B.C. and contribute to the highquality sports programs and competitions where these inspiring athletes experience acceptance, achievement, and joy.” Possabilities
