Crown sale of land in Surrey gets First Nation’s attention
Students from Sands Secondary in North Delta practice painting their palms pink in preparation for Anti-Bullying Day tomorrow. Students in all Delta high schools will be stamping their hand prints on doveshaped posters Wednesday to make an oath to eliminate bullying and all forms of violence.

Crown land available to offer in treaty negotiations with First Nations to settle unresolved land claims in Metro Vancouver. So Finance Minister Kevin Falcon’s budget announcement that B.C. will raise money by selling off a 15-acre parcel of surplus land in the middle of Surrey has raised eyebrows among treaty negotiation observers. “It’s an interesting move on their part since Crown land is so scarce,” First Nations Summit spokesman Dan Smith said. “We’ll see whether or not this takes place.” Metro Vancouver has previously raised concern the province may – because it has so little property to negotiate with – raid more Dan Smith farmland in the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) or even take from civic or regional parks to settle future treaties. Unlike the ALR land turned over for the Tsawwassen Treaty, the vacant parcel in Surrey, near the northwest corner of 152 Street and Highway 10, is zoned for commercial/multifamily residential and surrounded by existing homes and businesses.

Katzie: In talks with province From page 1
est in the Surrey property, which had once been considered a possible hospital site. “We have written a letter requesting consultation but there has been no formal consultation,” Katzie chief negotiator Debbie Miller said. “There are very few urban Crown land parcels within any area of Katzie traditional territory.” The Katzie are negotiating an agreement-inprinciple and are in talks with the province over what lands would become Katzie treaty land. The traditional territory over which the Katzie claim aboriginal rights and title covers all of Surrey, White Rock, Delta and Pitt Meadows, as well as much of Maple Ridge, Langley, Port Coquitlam and the entire Pitt River watershed. Tsawwassen First Nation Chief Kim Baird said bands in treaty talks typically oppose the sale of nearby Crown land to keep their acquisition options open. She said the fact urban Crown land is so rare means First Nations pursuing treaties may well look at more distant land. A government spokesperson said First Nations would be consulted ahead of any Crown land sales, which won’t begin until 2013 and won’t include land offered in treaty talks. More than $700 million is to be raised by selling more than 100 surplus properties, but the province won’t disclose where they are or how many are in the Lower Mainland. Metro Vancouver aboriginal affairs committee vice-chair Ralph Drew predicts that if the province does proceed, the Katzie might have an option to buy the Crown land in Surrey at market value ahead of anyone else. “It’s a prime economic development opportunity, I would think, given its location,” said Drew, the mayor of Belcarra. If the Katzie bought it, Drew said, the band could – even without a treaty – convert it into an Indian Reserve with taxRalph Drew free status and exploit new federal rules that provide much more scope for commercial and industrial development of reserves. Surrey would have no control over what is built there because it would no longer be part of the city and the Official Community Plan would not apply. Nor would the city receive property tax on the development. The band would levy taxes on building tenants but how much it remits to the city would depend on what kind of servicing agreement is negotiated, if any. Converting newly acquired land to a reserve is allowed through the federal government’s relatively new additions-to-reserve policy. The spectre of instant Indian Reserves popping up in the midst of local cities is not just a theoretical possibility. Drew said the TsleilWaututh band, for example, has made clear it intends to convert any land it buys in North Vancouver to reserve status. The Lower Mainland Treaty Advisory Committee (LMTAC) has argued the federal additions-to-reserve policy should be revised so acquired land can be converted only if it is contiguous to an existing reserve. “There’s got to be some common sense rules here that don’t create a patchwork quilt of jurisdiction,” Drew said. LMTAC has also sought reform to ensure cities are fairly compensated for any impacts and that First Nations can’t undercut their tax rates. It also argues bands shouldn’t be allowed to use newly created reserves to build condos for market housing. Drew said cities like Surrey and Burnaby have largely ignored the issue because they have no reserves, but added they should pay more attention. email@example.com

Man shot dead in Whalley 31-year-old killed Sunday in his home by Kevin Diakiw A MAN WAS shot and killed in his North Surrey
residence on the weekend. Just before 10 p.m. on Sunday, police responded to calls of shots fired in the 14000 block of Grosvener Road in Surrey. Police arrived with ambulance attendants, who found a 31-year-old man bleeding and unresponsive in his home. He died at the scene.
On Monday, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) along with Surrey RCMP were canvassing the neighbourhood for any witnesses. Police are describing the investigation as in the very early stages and are not releasing a name until the man’s family has been notified. If anyone has information regarding this homicide, they are asked to please contact the IHIT tipline by calling 1-877-551-4448 (IHIT) or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800222-8477 or visit their website at Solvecrime.ca
Bullying: Student-led talks effective From page 1 about things like peer pressure, inappropriate language and being “active witnesses.” Grade 11 student Joanne Yoon has been with SUP since Grade 8. “I’m Asian, so I’m different,” Yoon says of her initial desire to be part of the group. “Even though I’m different I feel I’m still welcomed in this country and in this school. I wanted to share that feeling ... that everyone should feel they’re at home at school and outside school.” Yogita Sharma, a Grade 12 student, says the group has focussed on verbal bullying, which can often be more pervasive and hurtful than physical violence. “Emotional scars will always stay,” Sharma says. Nelson Hoang, 18, agrees.
“Your words are the most powerful tool, but it can work both ways. They can be used both to hurt someone or in preventing someone from getting hurt.” They are convinced the impact of SUP’s message is more powerful because it’s delivered to students by students. And they believe the respectful and welcoming tone at their high school is evidence that what SUP is doing is making a difference. “When you step into Enver Creek, you feel at home. Everyone is so friendly and together – it’s a really nice place to be,” says Sharma, who encourages other schools to take a similar, studentled approach stop bullying. Since early February, students in kindergarten through Grade 5 were invited to share stories, videos and art on Surrey’s antibullying website (www.psst-bc.ca)
for a contest, the winner of which will be announced Wednesday. An anti-bullying video acting/singing contest for students in Grade 6 and up is still open (also at psst-bc. ca) until March 2.
50% of Canadians bullied According to a national survey released last week, half of all Canadian adults report being bullied when they were children or teens. Commissioned by Big Brothers and Sisters of Canada, the Harris/ Decima survey revealed that of those who reported being bullied, nearly a third felt the abuse they suffered caused lasting harm. Ninety-seven per cent of British Columbians said people have a responsibility to take action to stop bullies, while 91 per cent thought action to reduce bullying strengthens communities over time.

Losing the room?
here is a deadly moment in sports that occurs when someone is said to have “lost the room.” A coach will be trying to fire up a team to win with a locker-room speech, only to realize the players are tuning him out. They simply don’t care. Losing the room, experts say, is a consequence of losing trust. People stop believing what the coach or manager is saying. Then, they stop believing in the person. And finally, they stop listening. When that happens, there isn’t much a leader can do to win their audience back. But premier Christy Clark is giving it a shot. Having inherited a troubled, controversy-racked party that is down in the polls, she needs to fire up supporters if she’s going to win the next election. That means finding a way to rally Liberal backers, and what better way to wind up the troops than a restraint-minded provincial budget? Unfortunately for the Liberals, even their most die-hard supporters seem unable to muster more than a tepid message of support. “I think the budget is good in terms of an economic vision for the province,” said Mary Jane Stenberg, president of the Surrey Board of Trade. But she also criticized cuts to advanced education. Gary Hollick, president of the South Surrey & White Rock Chamber of Commerce, said local businesses were not especially enthusiastic supporters of the budget. He used the word “lackluster” to describe it, and though he added that was preferable to a “flamboyant” approach that would boost government spending and debt at a potential risk to the province’s credit rating, the lack of enthusiasm was apparent. The Surrey Board of Trade’s overall rating for the budget? A mundane C+. Not quite a yay-team moment. Even worse from a Liberal standpoint, there has been a decided lack of heat from the usual critics, with the opposition NDP’s Bruce Ralston adopting more of a scoffing, eyes-rolled-to-the-ceiling tone in his comments than the indignant outrage usually reserved for such moments. When both your supporters and your opponents are barely paying you attention, you’re in a lot of trouble. Coaches in that position usually end up fired. – Black Press

efore this week’s budget debate is drowned out by the shouting over the teachers’ dispute, here’s a look at the main points and the arguments unfolding around them. The setting for Finance Minister Kevin Falcon’s first budget is what he dreaded when Premier Christy Clark handed him the job. Recovery is painfully slow, with mining and petroleum growing and forest products struggling to hold and build on gains made in Asia. This and the $3 billion dismantling of the harmonized sales tax moved Falcon to limit overall spending growth to an average of two per cent for the next three years. That means little or no increase to all areas except health care, education and social assistance. Despite holding the line on public service pay and not replacing 2,000 positions over the next three years, Clark and Falcon had to postpone the elimination of the 2.5-percent small business income tax to get to a balanced budget by 2013. And Falcon has again dangled the prospect of raising general

says the climate plan is “in tatters,” along with dozens of other policy areas that are also under review after 11 years of B.C. Liberal rule. NDP leader Adrian Dix vows to keep the carbon tax and its offsetting personal income tax cuts, direct carbon tax revenues to transit and rural energy-saving retrofits, and hike the general corporate tax rate from 10 to 12 per cent to pay for it. • HST. Asked what he would have done as finance minister, Ralston suggested getting rid of the HST sooner. Dix continues to misrepresent the HST as solely a transfer to big business, ignoring the small and mediumsized businesses that have a year left to take advantage of input tax credits. Simon Fraser University economist Jon Kesselman has estimated that poor people will be worse off when the HST ends, while the rest of us will see a very small net benefit.

Government puts education system at risk Donate SO I’M NOT a teacher, but a friend of teachers.
I believe the education system we have here in B.C. is at risk. It’s time to stand up for public education in B.C. The B.C. government is systematically looking to dismantle and undermine the system we have and provide incentives for further privatization of education. Do we want the public system to be the poor system? B.C.’s society for the future is shaped through the B.C. education system. Everything from crime to careers is affected in some way by the child’s relationship and learning from B.C. teachers. Those most at
risk will fall further as cuts are continuing to be made. Breaking down the professional autonomy of the teaching profession jeopardizes our public education in B.C. The plan the BC government has was a nice advert for TELUS and they will force their agenda through mandating government professional development (developed by whom) and manage bodies through adding paraprofessional supports instead of quality educators. People think that teachers shouldn’t have the right to collectively bargain for wages or working conditions. Here’s an idea. Set out
the pay rates of all B.C. public employees and tie it to the pay of the politicians. They give themselves an increase they will see an increase provincewide. Maybe if that had been the case over the last 10 years there would’ve been a little more conservative increases for politicians. Working conditions equals students learning conditions. I believe in our BC public teachers and what they are doing for our children and contributing to our society. Rachel Henderson
Couple, now engaged, overwhelmed by community’s generosity and support I AM writing on behalf of Paul Thomson and Carla Hen-
derson. They would like to express their gratitude and appreciation to Evan Seal for writing such a heartfelt and touching story about them on Feb. 14 (“We don’t need luck. We’ve got each other.”). The article is a wonderful keepsake of their very special day. On the evening of Feb. 14, Paul asked Carla to marry him at the Semiahmoo House Society’s Acquired Brain Injury Program in Newton. Paul and Carla became engaged in front of family, friends and their support network. Carla happily accepted Paul’s proposal, and there was not a dry eye in the room as everyone watched Paul slip the ring on Carla’s finger. José Latchinian and Debora Dent of José & Co. Custom Jewellers were also present, as they delivered two chocolate hearts and a ring that was custom-made for Carla by José. The ring fit Carla perfectly and looks absolutely beautiful. The certificate of appraisal for the ring states it is appraised at $1,600. Paul says “José is an angel,” and gave José $310 and a bottle of wine in appreciation of his generous donation. The was money raised by friends and Paul’s support network. Paul and Carla have expressed how grateful they both are for the support and generosity that everyone has shown them. They often say “we still can’t believe it.” The generosity continued after the article appeared in The Leader on Valentine’s Day. On Feb. 15 a White Rock resident donated a beautiful wedding dress to Carla after reading their story. It will fit her perfectly. We have received numerous messages that this was such a wonderful story to read.

Privatizing liquor sales an election issue IT SEEMS the Gordon Campbell
agenda of privatizing all profits and socializing costs is not a thing of the past, it would seem privatize at any cost is still alive and well in BC. The Clark government obviously hasn’t learned any lessons on how to properly govern a democratic province and are once again about to make major changes to B.C. without a proper mandate from the voters of B.C. The tens of millions of liquor board profits that usually go to social programs, etc. will instead go into the sweet smelling pockets of a chosen few fat cats.
You might ask who is going to make up all that money when liquor profits are privatized (any guesses) let’s us not forget, private businesses pay minimal taxes in B.C. The harsh reality is that yet more workers will lose half their income and drop unceremoniously out of the middle class and the taxes from their reduced incomes will drop drastically also. This money shall be made up one of three ways, first it will be taken from other cash cows such as ICBC or BC Hydro and guess who is going to pay more for these services as a result.
Don’t forget, the Liberals already siphoned off a billion dollars from ICBC last year to pay for their financial ineptitude, not counting all the extra taxes they got from the HST. The second way will be to simply raise your income taxes. The third way these shortfalls will be dealt with is simply by cutting social or other programs these profits go to support, period. If you think that liquor will be cheaper when it is privatized better think again, the fact is that private liquor stores already pay 16 per cent less for their liquor than government liquor stores
do and they pay their employes about one-half what government liquor store employees earn. That is why that tip jar is on the counter because like all minimum wage jobs you the customer are expected to supplement their income, and I have yet to see anything cheaper in a private liquor store. This like the HST is definitely an election issue and if the government insists on doing it an election should be called to get a proper mandate from the people of BC. Wayne Clark Maple Ridge
your extra day’s pay
LEAP YEAR offers Feb. 29 to us all
as an extra day’s time and income every four years. Given the needs of society and our natural world we’d like to encourage folk to consider giving just one of their extra 24 hours, in time or salary. Sometime over this leap year then, when it best fits your convenience or pocketbook, why not contribute a little something of yourself to the community or charitable organization of your choice. If we all give just a little, especially such a small part of this free day the world has given so generously to us, then we’re going to add up to making a big difference in our communities and society. And businesses might want to similarly ponder how they might give a little extra as well. Happy Leap Year, everyone.

Drunk with power THE DECISION by B.C. Liberals
to completely privatize liquor distribution demonstrates once again that this government values commercial interests above public health concerns. Six years after a rash of new private liquor stores were authorized by the government in 2002, the provincial health officer reported higher alcohol consumption and binge drinking among youth across B.C. When the B.C. Liquor Distribution Branch totally disappears, its profits (currently projected at over $900 million per year) will then accrue to the private sector, alcohol will be more widely available and more aggressively marketed, and the increased social costs of alcohol abuse will fall to the public health system. Privatize the profits and socialize the costs – this is the enduring legacy of the B.C. Libs.

Whooping cough outbreak prompts region-wide vaccine push Fraser Health moves to combat spread of pertussis by Jeff Nagel A SPREADING outbreak
of whooping cough has prompted Fraser Health to extend its vaccination campaign across the region. More than 150 people are believed to have contracted pertussis, a highly contagious bacterial infection that causes adults to cough for months and can be deadly to babies. Medical health officer Dr. Elizabeth Brodkin said efforts to combat the illness had focused on Chilliwack and Hope – where the outbreak began – but said the vaccine is now being made available to doctors and pharmacists across the region. “More and more we are seeing cases outside of Fraser East,” she said. Whooping cough cases are appearing in Burnaby, New Westminster, Langley and Maple Ridge, Brodkin said. “We didn’t want to wait until we were seeing huge numbers of cases and a very aggressive spread,” she added. “We saw enough cases we became concerned and decided it was time to act.” Adults and youth in contact with young children who have not had the pertussis vaccine in the last five years are urged to get vaccinated. The goal is to immunize adults – for whom pertussis is more of an
irritant – so they don’t act as carriers infecting infants, who are most at risk and are hospitalized in more than half of cases. Three children have already been hospitalized due to the outbreak, including one two-weekold baby that ended up in intensive care for five weeks. All three have recovered. “It’s a nasty infection and even deadly in young infants,” Brodkin said. Three-quarters of infants infected get it from parents or close family members. California had a huge outbreak in 2009 that claimed the lives of 10 children, five more died in Saskatchewan in 2010 and two more children died last year just across the border in Washington State, where authorities are still battling an outbreak. The vaccine lasts only about five years so many people who received it in the past are no longer protected. Early symptoms of pertussis are similar to a cold, but often worsening to severe coughing that sounds like a whoop or crowing sound as the patient breathes in. Symptoms develop seven to 14 days after infection. For more information and a list of pharmacies that perform immunizations, see www. fraserhealth.ca/whoopingcough

Surrey resident among 5 more charged in riot 57 people now face formal charges Black Press
A 19-YEAR-OLD Surrey woman is among five more suspected Stanley Cup rioters charged Thursday, according to the Integrated Riot Investigation Team. Ariel Elizabeth Harrison is charged with participating in a riot and mischief. Crown has now formally charged 57 rioters with 153 criminal offences in connection to violence and mayhem that broke out last June in downtown Vancouver following the Vancouver Canucks’ Game 7 loss in the Stanley Cup finals.
Vancouver Police have recommended charges be laid against about 70 more people, but those have yet to be approved by prosecutors. The other charges approved Thursday were: Andrew Glenn Cuthbert, 20, from Maple Ridge, who is charged with arson, two counts of mischief and participating in a riot; Christian John Dougherty, 19, of Prince George, charged with rioting and mischief; Fernando Bernabe, 20, of Burnaby, charged with rioting and two counts of mischief; and Richmond’s Roneil Kumar, 26, charged with participating in a riot and
mischief. Coquitlam’s Ryan Dickinson, 20, is the only rioter sentenced so far. He pleaded guilty to participating in a riot after he helped destroy two unmarked police cars and was caught on surveillance cameras throwing a mannequin and newspaper box through a store window. He was sentenced to 17 months in jail last week. The provincial government had sought to have the trials of riot suspects televised, but backed away from that plan after a judge rejected having Dickinson’s sentencing broadcast last week.
Surrey man arrested after driver choked, passenger stabbed
A 19-YEAR-OLD Surrey man is facing charges in connection with the attempted strangulation of a bus driver, and the stabbing of a passenger. Langley RCMP spokesman Cpl. Holly Marks said the man was arrested shortly after midnight Thursday (Feb. 23) at his Surrey home. He did not resist arrest. Police from Langley, Surrey and the Lower Mainland Emergency Response Team took part in the apprehension. The arrest was made possible after a Langley Mountie recognized the man from surveillance footage provided by TransLink. The suspect is known to police, Marks said. The man is believed to be the same person who attempted to strangle a Coast Mountain Bus driver in Surrey on Saturday morning, Feb. 18.

The stabbing occurred at around 5 p.m. near Aldergrove Centre Mall. The victim was airlifted to hospital but was expected to be released within a day or two. The incident in Surrey occurred at King George Boulevard near 76 Avenue on a southbound 321 bus heading from Surrey Central station to White Rock. The driver had asked a young man to move down the bus as he was standing too close to the windshield. According to Gavin Davies, vice-president of Local 111 of the Canadian Auto Workers union, the young man complied without objection, but at a later stop grabbed the driver “with both hands around the throat and started choking him.” Davies said that the driver was not physically injured but assaults of this nature can inflict mental trauma.

An Invitation To A Public Open House You are invited to a public Open House to provide input on the second phase of a feasibility study for the development of a Sports, Arts, Culture and Harmony Centre in Newton. The centre would provide facility space available to the entire community including multi-purpose rooms, culture and heritage interpretation display areas, gymnasiums, ﬁtness rooms, a restaurant and day care. Staff and consultants will be on hand to receive community feedback. The ﬁrst phase of the feasibility study researched a proposal to develop a community centre on lands at Princess Margaret Park. A public Open House was held in November 2011 to present this proposal to the community. Since that Open House, Council has directed staff to investigate other possible sites for the centre. Staff and consultants have researched two other possible sites at Unwin Park and on City owned lands in Newton Town Centre. Plans and information for the feasibility of the three locations will be on display at the Open House. Date and Location 6:00 – 8:00pm Tuesday, February 28th, 2012 Cedar Building -- Conference Room Kwantlen Polytechnic University 12666 72nd Avenue Newton, Surrey The City of Surrey invites you to visit the Open House to provide feedback to identify community needs and issues on the development of the centre.

damage, about $15,000 worth, was mostly from water. But Jauncey lost mats, fighters’ gloves, a lot of the training gear, and some treadmills (a few are beginning to work again). Because his insurance lapsed two weeks before, Jauncey is on the hook for the replacements. However, his biggest worry was finding a new place for his kickboxing clients to train. A Feb. 17 competition was coming up fast, so Jauncey needed a new spot quickly. “It didn’t hit me until evening what had happened, then I thought, ‘oh, no, this isn’t good’,” Jauncey said. He hit the street looking for a new training facility, but couldn’t find anything in his price range. Then he started to get phone calls. Lots of them, from people offering places to train. The first came from Jimie Griffiths who runs Team Bad Boy Outreach in Whalley, a gym for troubled youth. “He was the first one (to call),” Jauncey said. “I know him really well.” The fighters were able to train there for the upcoming match, and as it turns out, they all won. On March 5, Jauncey will open his new gym at 12682 82 Ave. “We’re just painting it at the moment. Everyone’s been volunteering, helping out,” Jauncey said. “It will be really good, and literally, just five minutes from where we were before.” A benefit at The Wheelhouse Pub, at 12867 96 Ave., will be held on March 3 to help with Jauncey’s damages and start-up costs.

couver police jumped into False Creek to avoid capture, police are reporting. The dunk into the drink took place Wednesday night after a strange string of events in Vancouver. At about 5:30 p.m., Vancouver police responded to a call of a suspected shoplifter at Whole Foods in the 800 block of West 8 Avenue. The suspected thief got away after a struggle with the store’s loss prevention officer, however, the groceries were recovered.
Less than two hours later, when the loss prevention officer (LPO) was on his way home after the shift, the alleged thief approached him asking for his keys he lost in the earlier scuffle. The LPO said he had the keys back at the store and the man joined him in the walk back to Whole Foods. There, the LPO quietly called the police, letting them know the suspect was back. As soon as the man saw police, he fled. The suspect ran into an apartment complex, and was followed by a police officer. The suspect punched the officer in the face and took off.
He ran west down 6 Avenue, through a growth of blackberry bushes, across train tracks, over a fence, past the SkyTrain station and toward False Creek. The suspect sprinted into the creek and swam toward a marina, where he disappeared between some moored boats. The Vancouver K9 squad eventually found the suspect dripping wet on the dock. An ambulance was called in case the man was hypothermic. He faces numerous charges, including theft, assault, assaulting a peace officer, and escaping lawful custody.

chosen will give you a good idea of how you should dress for the event. Remember that the later the hour of the ceremony, the more formal the attire usually is. Even for a black-tie and gown reception, leave your long, sequined dresses and plunging necklines at home. It would be in poor taste to upstage the bride. Similarly, women guests should never wear white at any time during the wedding day; this colour is reserved for the bride. A general rule for male guests is to wear a suit and tie and avoid the colour brown. If the invitation mentions that children are not invited, the wishes of the bride and groom must be respected. Only the people whose names appear on the invitation envelope are counted for the guest list. And if your partner cannot attend, you should never invite a friend to accompany you without consulting with the couple ﬁrst. Finally, any self-respecting guest brings a wedding gift. If the bride and groom have organized a wedding registry, you don’t necessarily have to comply with it. You could offer a gift of cash money or any other inspired gesture. It is ﬁne to bring the gift to the reception, but even better is to send it to the bride and groom or to the matron of honour in advance of the wedding.

Province to pull $500M out of ICBC Flow of proﬁts to Victoria continues as rates set to rise by Jeff Nagel ICBC EXPECTS to shovel nearly half-a-billion dollars
in profits into provincial government coffers over the next three years, according to budget documents. Although the public auto insurer intends to raise basic insurance rates 11 per cent, its service plan shows it will also turn over $181 million in profits to the government in 2012, $165 million in 2013 and $151 million in 2014. That money – $497 million – is considered excess to ICBC’s capital requirements on the optional insurance side of its business and therefore unrelated to the need to jack basic rates to keep pace with rising claim costs. Add in transfers in 2010 and 2011 and the province will have taken nearly $1.2 billion out of ICBC by 2014. Critics argue the money should be returned to ratepayers. “They’ve created pools of money that they can
extract at will,” said Bruce Cran, president of the Consumers Association of Canada. “It was never meant to be this way.” The planned increase on basic rates would be partly offset by a premium cut on optional insurance, resulting in a net increase of $27 a year for a typical customer. B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins called the hike a “stealth tax” on motorists in light of the flow of profits to Victoria. Jordan Bateman, B.C. director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, said it’s unfair taxpayers in general benefit from ICBC charging ratepayers too much. Bateman said he would prefer to see more competition for car insurance, provided it is regulated. Bateman said the province is also relying too heavily on the cash it takes from B.C. Hydro and from gambling profits of the B.C. Lottery Corp. “The government has not been able to wean itself off of these Crown corporation revenues,” he said.

Over 25 years in business.
Keep your important documents for at least six years.
People should keep all pertinent ﬁnancial documents, receipts, and statements for as long as there is a possibility that tax authorities could propose an audit. Unless you want the federal or provincial tax bureaus to do their own re-assessments without any substantiating documents from your ﬁles, you should be able to supply all documentation immediately upon request. If these documents are digitalized, you must be able to print them at any time. If you can’t supply the required receipts or supporting documents, you could end up with a refusal of credit, changes to deductions that you had earlier claimed, or delay in the treatment of your current tax return. Governments can issue an adjusted assessment to individuals in the three-year period following the date of the ﬁrst notice of assessment for a given year. There is no time limit if a declaration was never ﬁled or if there is suspicion of fraud. Selfemployed people are required to keep all their documents and records for a period of six years. This time period also applies to all taxpayers who wish to submit a request for supplementary deductions following the initial ﬁling of an income tax return. It is a grave mistake to not keep all the pertinent documents and receipts in your ﬁles under the pretext that you ﬁled your returns electronically. Documents that need to be kept include T4s, which are proof of employment income, medical expenses, contributions to registered retirement savings plans (RRSPs), alimony and child support statements, childcare costs, moving costs, charitable donations, and the like.

punched their ticket to the BC Hockey League playoffs on the weekend, after wins over the Nanaimo Clippers and Alberni Valley Bulldogs officially clinched their post-season berth, while also tightening their tenuous hold on first place in the Coastal Conference. On Friday at South Surrey Arena, the Eagles’ offence led the home team to a 6-3 win over the visiting Clippers, and Saturday edged the visiting Bulldogs 4-3, giving Surrey 77 points.
They are three up on the Powell River Kings, who had only trailed by a single point before weekend action, and four ahead of the Cowichan Valley Capitals. The Eagles have a 34-11-2-7 (won-losstied-overtime loss) record. Surrey and Powell River have six games remaining, while the Capitals play just four more times. The only negative for the Eagles last week came Wednesday, when the team’s 16-game point streak – earning either a win, tie or overtimeloss – was snapped in
a 4-1 loss to the lowly Langley Rivermen, who despite sitting in last place in the Coastal Conference have giving Surrey trouble at times this month; on Feb. 11 they took the Eagles to overtime, before falling 3-2. Against Alberni Valley Saturday, the Eagles were led by Brayden Jaw, who opened the scoring 11:46 into the first period and added his second goal of the contest midway through the second. The two-goal outburst for the Harvardbound Jaw gives him seven goals this
season. In addition to Jaw, Trevor Cameron and Sean McGovern also scored in the second period for Surrey, and Michael Stenerson and Brandon Tanev added two assists apiece. McGovern – who has been the hottest Eagle over the last month – also had a goal and two assists to lead the team Saturday over Nanaimo. The 18-year-old Ontario native, in his rookie season in the BCHL, has 15 points in his last 11 games – a streak that began with a hat trick against Langley in mid-February. McGovern wasn’t the only Eagle to register a multi-point game Saturday against Nanaimo. Alex Hagen, Brandon Morley and Robert Lindores each had a goal and an assist, while Cameron added two helpers. Demico Hannoun added his 11th goal of the year, on a thirdperiod power play. Andrew Hunt was between the pipes for both weekend tilts, but backup Conor Barrie earned the start Wednesday against the Rivermen, where he was peppered with 39 shots on net. Lindores scored the Eagles’ lone goal in the game, a powerplay marker 8:22 into the first period, while Langley was paced by 20-year-old Darnell Dyck – a former Eagle – who scored twice. The Eagles will have the opportunity to redeem themselves tonight (Tuesday) when they travel to Langley for a return engagement with the Rivermen, which is the first in a fivegame week. On Wednesday, they play a second mid-week game in Cowichan against the Capitals. They are on the road again on Friday, when they travel to Victoria to battle the Grizzlies, then they play two against the second-place Powell River Kings Saturday night and Sunday afternoon, both at Powell River’s Hap Parker Arena.

Fit for office Mayors take on Healthy Community Challenge; public encouraged to join in
by Monique Tamminga and Nick Greenizan
our local mayors are willing to not just talk the talk, but walk the walk and then some in an effort to promote health and fitness throughout B.C. Dianne Watts (Surrey), Peter Fassbender (Langley City), Richard Stewart (Coquitlam) and Bruce Banman (Abbotsford) signed up to take on the Healthy Community Challenge 2012. The three-month venture – which encourages participants to get active and lead healthier lifestyles – doesn’t begin until next month, but it got an early boost Feb. 16, when the four mayors met their personal trainers from Innovative Fitness and got their Body Mass Index (BMI) tested at a Langley gym. The mayors said their fitness progress will be made public as they go along. Most are committed to work out with their trainers three times a week. “Since my horse accident where I broke my back, I haven’t exercised at all,” said Watts, who broke two vertebrae while riding on vacation last July. “This will give me an opportunity to really feel healthy again, to heal. When someone has a significant injury it can be a vicious cycle. You become lethargic because you aren’t active. I want to move on in a healthy direction.” The Surrey mayor noted she has a “leg up” from her male colleagues. “I don’t have a gut. The boys have belly fat,” she joked. Banman didn’t dispute this, saying he’d like to see his abs again from this fitness challenge. “I know they are in there somewhere. In 90 days you can do a lot. I turned the big ‘five-oh’ this year. What I do now will set the foundation for years to come.” All four mayors agreed their busy work schedule is not only Surrey Mayor stressful but has them in front of Dianne Watts desserts and fattening foods most days at meetings and banquets.

MONIQUE TAMMINGA / BLACK PRES
Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart is joined by Surrey Mayor DianNe Watts, Abbotsford Mayor Bruce Banman and Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender at Innovative Fitness in Langley.
“We all have a very challenging lifestyle,” Fassbender said. The Langley City mayor – a cancer survivor – is setting a goal to reduce the amount of diabetic medication he has to take. “If we want to reduce health-care costs, it’s got to be about prevention,” he said. Fassbender already takes the stairs at work and can be seen walking around downtown Langley as a way to stay fit. Watts said she brings her own food to functions so she isn’t tempted to eat sweets. Coquitlam’s Stewart – like Watts – is recovering from a serious accident. Stewart was hit by a car while out campaigning on foot three months ago. Prior to that, he was in a crippling car crash eight years ago that left him with back injuries. “I’m looking to build up my strength. I still feel the weight of Christmas time,” he said. Coquitlam trainer Kris Schjelderup said he will work on Stewart’s range of motion, posture and body alignment. Banman’s trainer plans to get the new Abby mayor in crampons – traction-improving footwear – to climb neighbouring Elk Mountain, which currently has nine feet of snow. “Nothing worth having comes easy,” responded Banman, a chiropractor. The community challenge is not simply about weight loss,
either, said challenge founder Matt Young, Innovative Founder’s president. While that may be the case for many who sign up, others may be training for athletic endeavours or – as in some of the mayors’ cases – rehabbing from injuries. Young said organizers put the challenge to the mayors with the hope that their communities’ residents, and others from across B.C., will be inspired to take part. Once registered, participants will have access through the website to all types of healthy living and fitness resources, and will also be able to track their fitness progress over the course of the program. For each positive activity – which could range from simply remembering to eat breakfast to going for a walk after work – participants earn points. Those points are then added to a larger pool and sorted by the participants’ communities, in an effort to find which city has gained the most points. Prizes will be awarded for the top individual point-getters, while other rewards will be handed out at random. The Healthy Community Challenge begins March 12. To register, visit www.healthycommunitychallenge.com or watch for announcements on how to get your BMI and measurements recorded two days prior.
