Teen girl hit by SUV dies Kevin Diakiw Black Press

A 16-year-old girl hit by an SUV in Cloverdale last month has succumbed to her injuries.

Four people were taken to hospital following a crash in South Surrey Saturday.

Jaws of life needed

Evening crash injures four Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

Four Surrey residents were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after a two-car collision near 24 Avenue and King George Boulevard in South Surrey Saturday night. According to police, a southbound Mitsubishi Eclipse with two female occupants was turning left on 24 Avenue around 8:10 p.m. when it collided with a northbound Mazda 626 with two men on board.

Firefighters had to use the “jaws of life” to extract the driver of the Mazda. He was airlifted from the scene with suspected chest injuries, but released from Royal Columbian hospital later that evening. The other three people were taken to Peace Arch Hospital with what were described as relatively minor injuries. The intersection was closed to traffic for several hours until the damaged vehicles could be removed.

Foam not hazardous: ministry Surrey firefighters investigating a report of foam floating on the Nicomekl River Thursday were unable to identify what caused it or where it came from. Deputy fire Chief Jon Caviglia confirmed Friday, however, that crews were able to eliminate “a whole bunch of nasty products” as being the source. “We suspect it may just be manure or something that mixed in with something that caused a foam,” he said.

Officials with the B.C. Ministry of Environment said the foam was initially reported to the Provincial Emergency Program’s spill reporting line, and the ministry contacted the fire department, communications officer Suntanu Dalal said by email. “The ministry has been advised that… no hazardous chemical issues were noted,” Dalal writes. Spills may be reported at anytime to 1-800663-3456.

news South Fraser Women’s Services Society to run under Sources banner

Non-profit merger a ‘strategic alliance’ Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Denise Darrell is quick to joke about the moment she knew Sources Community Resource Centre would be a good fit for the programs and services offered through South Fraser Women’s Services Society. “The clincher for me was when I asked David to define ‘feminist’ and he was able to,” Darrell said in a recent interview, poking fun at Sources’ executive director, David Young. Joking aside, Darrell and Young said a merger between the two organizations – first suggested by Darrell last May, and celebrated publicly on International Women’s Day, March 8 – ❝It’s about to all positives, capacity and translates both for the organizations how do we and the community. Naming increased capacserve the ity of programs, expanded community in resources and a higher a better way.❞ profile for the women’s Denise Darrell centre as among the benefits, the pair emphasized the decision was neither made lightly nor as a result of financial troubles on the part of the women’s centre. “It wasn’t a crisis,” Darrell said. “It was a strategic alliance. It’s about capacity and how do we serve the community in a better way.” The women’s centre, now called Sources Women’s Place, has been a registered charity in the South Surrey/White Rock area since 1978, providing free resources, support and counselling for women who are dealing with issues of violence and/or poverty. Darrell, who is now director of women, seniors and community services for Sources, told attendees of Thursday’s event there are still big challenges ahead, and that women need “to actively be involved” in efforts to create a world where all women have equal social and economic rights. “What is good for women is good for the world,” she said. Rev. Joan McMurtry, who chaired the women’s centre board for six years, described the merger as a move that will “enhance and perhaps even reshape the already visionary work of Sources in this community.” The merger is the most recent of three for the White Rock-based Sources, which welcomed Newton Advocacy Group to its fold last June and, in 2010, amalgamated with

Young told Peace Arch News last week after announcing the merger that shared values around inclusion, strengthening families and supporting people in being all they can be were key to knowing the latest merger would work. “We’ve probably been going in the same direction for years,” Young said, adding he hopes in joining forces that the organizations will be able to be even more responsive to the individuals they serve. Darrell had said that from the outside, aside from a new name on the centre’s 15318

20 Ave. home, nothing will appear to have changed. No jobs have been lost and no programs will be cut as a result, she said. As well, the centre will remain the safe, confidential space for women that it has always been. At Thursday’s launch, Darrell and Young thanked B.C. Lions quarterback Travis Lulay for a $10,000 contribution to Sources Women’s Place. Lulay, whose wife, Kim, volunteers at the centre, had the choice of which charity to award the cash to as a result of being named Gibson’s Finest Canadian Football League

Most Outstanding Player of the Year last season. Speaking to Lulay’s selection for the award, Gibson’s Finest Canadian Whisky marketing manager Carolyn McFarlane said the quarterback “both on and off the field sets an example we can all aspire to.” “Travis is a man that’s all heart,” she said. Darrell noted the funds will be used as seed money for a capital campaign aimed at establishing affordable housing for seniors. The launch also featured Tracy Porteous, of the Ending Violence Association of B.C., who highlighted the Lions’ partnership on the Be More than a Bystander program.

March 2 blaze leaves mobile home damaged beyond repair

South Surrey family ‘kind of homeless’ after fire Dan Ferguson Staff reporter

Jill Drescher says her family is “kind of homeless” in the wake of the March 2 fire that destroyed their home of nearly 15 years. She, her husband John, 16-yearold daughter, Jessica, and 11-yearold son, Johnny, lived in a wellmaintained mobile home on agricultural property located near 8 Avenue and 176 Street until that Friday afternoon around 5 p.m., when Johnny spotted a fire on their new outdoor deck. He yelled a warning and called 911 when he spotted the flames. Everyone got out without serious injury, though Jill Drescher and her son were treated for smoke inhalation.

The family is hoping to find rental accommodation in the same area where they lived, but finding a three-bedroom for between $1,000 and $1,100 is proving a challenge. “There’s not a lot in that area that’s in our price range.” The family did not have insurance.

Meanwhile, Moffat said, teachers will continue to push their fight against the legislation, with further steps still under discussion. “It’s fair to say the amount of support the teachers have had from the public has made us hopeful the government will see their opportunity to do the right thing and come to the table – and find a solution that is non-legislated,” she said. The relationship between teachers and the government would be “irreparably damaged” if the legislation is passed, she predicted. Moffat said an estimated 300 Surrey teachers were among the thousands of BCTF members and members of other unions who rallied last Tuesday outside the Legislature. “A group of Surrey teachers were in Victoria meeting with MLAs from all parties to discuss their concerns – every MLA they could speak with,” she said. “These are classroom teachers who feel passionately about public education.”

Riot suspects posted

Anniversary Celebration One Day Only

Sheila Reynolds Black Press

More than 340 volunteers and 70 police officers were on the streets in 19 B.C. cities – including Surrey – Thursday, handing out 70,000 posters of suspected rioters. The posters feature images of 100 individuals, including five of the Integrated Riot Investigation Team’s (IRIT) “most wanted,” who are linked to the assault on Robert Mackay, who was attacked and beaten when he tried to stop looters from entering The Bay. The poster is the second issued by police to help identify those who allegedly committed crimes last June in downtown Vancouver following the Vancouver Canucks’ Game 7 loss in the Stanley Cup finals. The first poster was issued last November. The posters cost $14,000 to print – a cost that was covered by the Vancouver Police Foundation. Police also announced Thursday that the Crown approved six more charges, two of which are against 19-year-old Surrey resident Mustafa Khan, who is charged with participating in a riot and mischief. Last week, the Vancouver Police Department said Surrey’s Emmanuel Alviar, 19, pleaded guilty to participating in a riot, with his sentencing hearing scheduled for May 3. Charges against seven others were also approved March 5, including three against 24-year-old Surrey

editorial

Strike energizing labour unions ike sharks attracted to blood in the water, a number of B.C.’s union bosses are now rushing in to join the B.C. Teachers’ Federation in its fight with the Liberal government. The B.C. Federation of Labour and the Canadian Union of Public Employees have announced they’re joining the protest over Bill 22, the legislation that will block further teachers’ strike action and impose a coolingoff period. The union rhetoric is the standard fare, with the Liberals accused of being confrontational and undemocratic. The BCTF has been at the table with the government for nearly a year. It put forth utterly unrealistic wage demands, which overpower solutions to gain in other areas that truly do have something to do with education, such as addressing special needs in classrooms. The BCTF and its brethern can lecture as much as they like about free collective bargaining. The fact of the matter is that the teachers’ union hasn’t seen the process work in a functional manner since the mid-’90s, while many others have, many times. Given that history, the piling on now by the BC Fed and CUPE is disengenuous. And while the move won’t likely morph the teachers’ job action into a 2012 version of Operation Solidarity – the 1983 labourled protest that brought B.C. to the brink of a general strike after Social Credit leader Bill Bennett proposed a sweeping program of curbed spending and program cuts – it clearly shows that the current government has angered not just the BCTF, but much of organized labour. Bill 22 is not a threat directed at other public sector unions, however. It’s aimed at getting teachers back into the classrooms, where they need to be. The escalating disruption in schools had to be dealt with. Using that as an excuse, however, other public sector unions are now making ominous noises, hoping to leverage the government (taxpayers) to weaken, and agree to wage and/or benefit demands above the net zero rightfully set last year. This is the last thing the province needs in a time of a seriously challenged economy – concocted, widespread labour strife.

So far this week you’ve said… yes 44% no 56% 159 responding to your union executive. They’ve scaled back some of their more egregious prep time and paid leave demands, but apparently your admirably altruistic message has not yet been absorbed. And yes, I’m aware that the Harvard study of class size and performance I mentioned last week examined charter schools in the United States. I understand that “charter school” is considered coarse language in B.C. As with health care, there must be no serious competitive dynamic or other dangerous experimentation permitted within the unionized state monopoly model. And thanks for suggesting I’m an agent of the B.C. Liberals, who invented poverty 11 years ago. East Van MLA Jenny Kwan touched on it in the debate on Bill 22. Children coming to inner city schools hungry, inadequately clothed, with lice. Abused children. I can assure Kwan that these tragic realities are not confined to the hellish B.C. Liberal era of spending increases. Indeed, I witnessed all these things in my three-room school in Tomslake, B.C. in the 1960s. Social Credit was to blame then. I remember the school more for its great teachers than its undrinkable water or alcoholic principal. And to all those who provide spellingchallenged advice on journalistic objectivity, here’s the thing. The first rule of opinion writing is to have one. I’m not looking for middle ground in the cold vacuum between Earth and Planet BCTF.

letters Peace Arch News

BIA didn’t ask We depend residents to pay on our water Editor: Re: Businesses should foot bill, March 6 letters. The White Rock Business Improvement Association’s initial request to the city was to re-form the Mayor’s Parking Task Force to address the parking issues faced by users on the waterfront. The BIA would like the Task Force to focus on the main issues, identified as the following: 1. Pay-parking rates during low season 2. Parking enforcement 3. Space shortage during high season At no time has the BIA requested a tax increase to the residents for the lowered pay-parking rate. Our goal and message has always been to seek alternative sources of revenue to make up for any loss incurred by the City of White Rock. Suggestions and ideas have included advertising on the reverse of parking tickets, advertising in public washrooms on the waterfront and non-resident decals. These are just some of the ideas that the Parking Task Force – which has now been formed with representatives from the City of White Rock, the BIA and waterfront merchants – will discuss. Additionally, the BIA would like to explore the option of a 30-minute grace period on parking tickets to give visitors an improved experience on the waterfront. The message being, this grace period has been given to you by the BIA, and with the $30 saved, please spend it in a White Rock business. Again, the BIA, on behalf of White Rock businesses, has not requested a tax increase to fund lower parking rates. The mention of a tax increase was given during a report by the financial director, Sandra Kurylo. The BIA has always been focused on alternative revenue solutions. The report was required for the task force to understand the financial impact of our request and give the task force a starting point for one of our goals of lowered parking rates during the mid-season. The BIA representing White Rock businesses strongly supports the community through other programs, such as offering free graffiti removal for residential properties during March and April. We also host free events throughout the year for residents and visitors of all ages, including the Uptown Street Festival & Dog Show and West Beach Pumpkin Festival. The BIA also funds Christmas lights and street banners hung on street lamps throughout White Rock. I believe this gives clarification to letter-writer Kaylee Scott and others that the BIA is not seeking a residential tax increase to fund lower parking rates and other important changes to waterfront parking. White Rock businesses also pay property taxes that were increased last year and which fund city services and infrastructure alongside residential taxes. Sherri Wilson Morissette, White Rock Business Improvement Assn.

Editor: Re: Simple solutions to bottle battle, Feb. 28 letters. I read with interest the letter to the editor written by Chantrell Creek Elementary pupil Andrew Bishop. While Andrew is to be commended for his commitment to environmental sustainability, he is focused on reducing the use of a product that is recommended for consumption within the Ministry of Education’s nutritional guidelines and, with an almost 70 per cent diversion rate nationally, is easily the most recycled consumer product found in a school cafeteria. Andrew has the good fortune to live in a province that has one of the highest recycling rates for beverage containers in the world. According to Encorp Pacific, the industry steward responsible for beverage container recycling in B.C., slightly more than 80 per cent of beverage containers were recycled province-

wide, last year. The Canadian beverage industry is working with consumers and local governments to improve on that rate. While we are opposed to any banning of bottled water in schools, we are not opposed to the use of filtered-water filling stations or water fountains, as long as operating funds are in place to properly maintain both in accordance with public health unit regulations. Why? Bottled water doesn’t compete with tap water. It competes with other bottled beverages. According to independent market research, 70 per cent of Canadians drink both tap water and bottled water. They drink tap water at home and bottled water away-from-home. It should also be noted there are school boards in B.C. that don’t have access to potable water because of lead contamination issues and other challenges related to failing water and sewer infrastructure. Having a vending machine in those schools that includes bottled water is vital to the health and hydration of students and staff in those communities. John B. Challinor II, Nestlé Waters Canada

Q Thank you to letter-writer Andrew Bishop and his friend for their ideas on creating solutions to the problem that plastic water bottles pose to our environment and to the health of our planet. The ocean is becoming filled with plastic and this is having a devastating on the life in and around our oceans. Where does all this plastic come from? How can we take responsibility for this developing crisis? I have taken part in many beachcleaning endeavours, but we do not seem to be stopping the flow of plastic to our oceans. Storm drains lead to the ocean. Our streets are often full of plastic litter, especially during recycling days, and much of this plastic is washed away down the storm drains to the oceans. Individuals and municipal governments can deal with this significant problem by significantly reducing our use of plastic, cleaning up the plastic at the source and changing the storm drains so that they screen out all the plastic.

Teachers rally outside Chantrell Creek Elementary last week during the three-day teachers strike.

Job action a matter of leadership An open letter to Education Minister George Abbott. A few years ago it was explained to the public of B.C. that MLAs deserved a pay raise of 25-49 per cent, depending on their responsibilities, in order to attract and keep the brightest and the best into politics, which, apparently, is very exacting and time-consuming, much more so than either teaching or nursing. By logical extrapolation, your government is declaring the children of B.C. do not deserve the brightest and the best teachers, nor health-care workers, and that the calling of being a teacher is no more than babysitting angelically behaved children by mediocre adults. And I see from your media appearances that you are a very reasonable, very courageous, very articulate, well-informed man on educational matters in general, and special-needs education in particular. I, therefore challenge you to put your reasoning, courage, and knowledge where your mouth is. I challenge you to do my job for two weeks, which has entailed working with nearly 400 special-needs children from nearly 80 schools. You will be completely in charge of the entire program, including identifying the students, creating curriculum, creating/keeping all records, corresponding with hundreds of teachers and parents, providing input on IEPs, arranging all scheduling, reviewing all the latest research, planning and attending professional development, meeting with teachers and parents, buying the necessary resources out of pocket, locating

and/or gathering resources for the diversity in 400 children, canvassing the community for handouts… Given the reason for your two-digit raise being attracting and keeping the brightest and the best, it should be a piece of cake for you to take over my job. I am sure you have the courage to take on a job that requires little brightness and is for the mediocre. Pummy Kaur, White Rock Editor: How did a nice lady like Susan Lambert ever get mixed up with the leadership shenanigans of the BCTF? She is doing herself a great disservice. It’s been a while since I left school, but it all seems very elementary. By voting down the HST there’s been less money coming in, so less will be going out. Get used to it. G. Reid, Surrey Re: Big divide over teachers’ strike, March 6 letters. After reading through the letters to the editor about the teachers’ strike, I’m curious about the amount of time some of the writers have spent in a school recently. I hope that all who voice opinions about the current dispute have a credible amount of recent personal experience in a classroom upon which to base their arguments. Donald Fleming, White Rock

news Commercial vehicles added

New bait cars hit streets Kevin Diakiw Black Press

The 10th anniversary of B.C.’s bait car program was celebrated this week with the launch of a new commercial bait car program and the unveiling of the latest list of Top 10 Most Wanted car thieves. B.C. Minister of Justice and Attorney General Shirley Bond was in Surrey Thursday to outline the successes of the antitheft program so far, and launch the new commercial bait vehicle initiative. She said the bait car program has “played an unbelievable role in dramatically decreasing auto crime.� In 2011, auto theft declined provincewide by 20 per cent, building on a 22-per-cent drop in 2010, Bond said, adding thefts from vehicles has also decreased by 13 per cent. In hopes of adding to that success, the Integrated Municipal Provincial Auto Crime Team (IMPACT) announced the creation of a commercial bait vehicle program, targeting people who would take large trucks, vans and other commercial vehicles. In addition, IMPACT unveiled its new Top 10 Most Wanted list. Bond noted that in the past, 77 of the 80 suspected car thieves that topped the annual list have been apprehended.

perspectives …on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Surrey’s top cop set to retire

‘A leader in every sense’ Kevin Diakiw Black Press

F

raser MacRae says it’s with mixed emotions that he leaves as officer in charge of the Surrey RCMP. “Frankly, I’ve gone through a bit of an emotional roller coaster,” MacRae said in an interview last Wednesday, a day after announcing his impending retirement effective June 1. “Not in terms of second thoughts or reservations, I’m absolutely comfortable with my decision. The enormity of the decision is not lost on me, and it hits me hard sometimes.” He’s going to miss working with what he describes as an extremely capable detachment. MacRae has been the head of the Surrey detachment since 2004, leading a team of 661 officers and more than 250 support staff. In 2010, he was awarded the Order of Merit medal from the Governor General of Canada and was also named Assistant Commissioner with the RCMP. The reason for his departure has nothing to do with politics or the relationship he has within the RCMP, he says. Simply, MacRae says when an officer approaches 35 years service, they tend to think about retirement. He reached that level of service last October. He said the job requires an intense investment of time and spirit to not only the community, but city hall, and the RCMP organization. “It is a heavy mantle of responsibility,” 56-year-old MacRae said. “For no particular reason, I feel it’s time to put that responsibility down, and allow someone with fresh perspective, energy and passion to pick up where the detachment is today and take it to that next level.” MacRae is known for building

RCMP assistant commissioner Fraser MacRae is retiring after 35 years on the force. relationships between the Surrey RCMP and several community groups. Those people he’s reached out to say they’re going to miss him when he leaves. Bonnie Burnside, manager of special events and communications for the Downtown Surrey Business Improvement Association, said MacRae’s departure represents a tremendous loss. “Fraser MacRae has been such a wonderful person to work with,” Burnside

said Tuesday. “He was just so responsive to our needs. I’m going to miss him.” Anita Huberman, CEO of the Surrey Board of Trade, echoed Burnside’s sentiments. “We’re just so sad to hear that he’s retiring,” Huberman said. “I’ve worked with, previous to him, two other chiefs and I would say that he is the one that has really made a difference to Surrey, working collaboratively with stakeholders.” MacRae will be partly in charge of picking

his successor, and says there are certain qualities he’ll be looking for. “I think it needs to be someone who recognizes the value of relationships,” MacRae said. “It is someone who recognizes the dynamics around municipal policing, it is someone who cares about people.” There are immense challenges facing the person who takes on that job. Chief among them is the tremendous growth in Surrey’s population, he said. “The addition ❝It is a heavy of resources are expensive, and they’re mantle of usually reactive to the responsibility.❞ population,” MacRae Fraser MacRae said, adding planning RCMP is key as new personnel take a year to get in place. Adding to that is the large number of youth in this city, the highest number of any city in the province. Demographically, ages 15 to 25 put the highest demand on policing time. As to whether Surrey needs more police, MacRae has a one-word answer: “Yes.” Perhaps most of all, MacRae will be missed by the rank and file of the RCMP, where he’s described as an inspiring leader whose opendoor policy wasn’t just a catchphrase. Any problem, professional or personal, MacRae always had good advice for the cops under his watch. “He’s the smartest police officer I’ve ever worked with in my career,” said one officer. At city hall, he is also highly regarded. “He is a leader in every sense of the word, and he will be greatly missed,” said Mayor Dianne Watts. MacRae said he’ll miss the people he’s met as well, but perhaps more than that, the ones he hasn’t had the chance to meet yet. “I will miss the new interactions I would have had if I had remained,” he said. “But I’ll always have the ones that I’ve accumulated.”

lifestyles Gateway Casinos’ donation brings scholarship fund to $50,000

Batalia bursary hits goal Kevin Diakiw Black Press

The Maple Batalia Memorial Fund reached its fundraising goal of $50,000 last week, in time for what would have been Batalia’s 20th birthday. Maple Batalia was shot and killed Sept. 28 last year, ending the life of the aspiring model and SFU sciences student who wanted to be a doctor. The Batalia family set up the bursary fund just before Christmas 2011 with a donation of $10,000 and a goal of reaching $50,000. “It has been amazing to watch the community work together to create this memorial in Maple’s honour,” says Joanne Curry, executive director of SFU’s Surrey campus. “Her family’s initiative and tireless efforts prompted numerous

A scholarship fund honouring Maple Batalia raised $50,000. events, from bottle drives to a tribute at the Central City Model Search. And Surrey city councillor Barinder Rasode must have phoned everyone she knows to personally ask for donations from

individuals and companies.” The largest gift of more than $13,000 to complete the fund came from a local business, Gateway Casinos and Entertainment Limited. Bob Cheema, speaking on behalf of Gateway, says, “Supporting this fund is so important. By working together to do something positive, we are helping Maple’s family, her friends and our entire community move beyond this tragedy while helping students in the community who are in need.” The fund will be used to support SFU students in the faculty of health sciences, where Batalia was a student. It is the first bursary fund established at SFU to specifically support students in this new faculty. Police are still gathering evidence in regards to Batalia’s murder.

Two Semiahmoo Secondary students are spending their spring break working with some of Canada’s top research scientists. Fred Zhu and Nury Lee are among 48 Canadian students selected for a Gene Researcher for a Week, a program offered by the Canadian Gene Cure Foundation. The 17-year-old South Surrey residents were selected based on application essays, interest in science, academic standing and extracurricular community involvement. “I was pretty excited (when I heard the news),� Zhu told Peace Arch News Thursday during an interview between classes. “Quite thrilled� is how Lee described her reaction. Zhu will spend March 19-23 in the University of B.C. Centre for Molecular Medicine and

will be in the UBC Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology with host scientist Dr. Eric Jan, an associate professor of biochemistry and molecular biology. Lee said that since she started working as a volunteer with autistic children, she has become fascinated with the genetic condition. She thinks she will become a doctor specializing in autism. Zhu said he is still uncertain about his future profession. “I feel like I should decide,� he said, apologetically. Lee disagreed. “It’s good that you’re keeping doors open,� she told Zhu. Sandra MacPherson, board chair for the Canadian Gene Cure Foundation said the point of the program is to encourage the country’s brightest students to consider a career in the field “and, eventually, become the next generation of leading-edge scientists.�

“We’d love for that to happen. The girls (in Angel Wings) would be thrilled.” McKnight said the parents of the

older girls would like to discuss a handover with the parents of the Chantrell students, to see if they are interested and to make sure they understand the time commitment involved. The founding members of Angel Wings were recognized as outstanding youth philanthropists in 2009 for their annual fundraiser for the B.C. Cancer Society. The group started out with a modest goal of raising $2,000 through the sale of bead bracelets and garage sales to honor group founder Cailyn Conci’s mother Donna, who died of breast cancer in 2007. This will be the last year for the current generation of Angel Wings, because all the girls will be graduating. The fifth annual Angel Wings garage sale is planned for March 31 (Saturday) from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 13358 23 Ave.

Buying a home is one of life’s biggest most important decisions that comes with no shortage of stress, excitement and confusion. While Ànding the right mortgage is just one aspect of the multi-faceted home-buying experience, it’s the one you can trust to Dominion Lending Centres - Liberty Financial, where brokers are committed to making mortgages easy, understandable and, above all, the best Àt for you and your needs. According to managing broker Sandi Williams, the professionals at Dominion Lending Centres - Liberty Financial pride themselves on being “relationship brokers,” who take the time to listen to clients’ concerns, preferences and goals while always keeping their best interests in mind. “We stand out because we develop a relationship with clients and know more about them,” Williams explained. “For example, if we know that down the road a couple is planning on relocating, we may take a different approach. “Every homeowner is different than the next and you really need that distinction in this market. You need someone working for you.” With a new ofÀce recently opened at 16 Avenue and 152 Street, it’s now easier than ever for prospective homebuyers to step inside and be on their way to Ànding their best mortgage Àt. Dominion Lending Centres are independently owned and operated. DLC - Liberty Financial works closely with banks, credit unions and other Ànancial institutions with one goal in mind – Ànding a mortgage that works for you. “We don’t sell rate, we sell product,” Williams said. “Of course, we always want you to have the best rate, but the product is equally important, and understanding that is key.” While they may not be the ones you call for your term deposit rates or your chequing account balance, DLC - Liberty Financial is a true “one-stop shop for all your mortgage needs”. And with over 30 years of combined experience in the mortgage business, the professionals at this Peninsula ofÀce have the expertise needed to think outside the box and approach each and every client a little differently based on their personal circumstances.

BC Boys Basketball Championships slated for Langley this week

BCTF job action won’t affect provincials Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The B.C. Boys AAA Basketball Championship is set to begin today, and tournament director John Buis doesn’t expect the event to be affected by teachers’ current job action. The B.C. Teachers Federation advised teachers to work bell-to-bell last week, meaning any prep work and after-school extra-curriculars – including sports – were cancelled. High schools are closed this week and next for spring break and what Surrey Teachers

Association president Denise Moffatt called “school closure days.” Many teams taking part in basketball provincials, held at the Langley Events Centre, are coached by teachers. However, some teams – like White Rock Christian Academy, for instance – are from private schools or are coached by community coaches. And while Buis has not heard one way or another if any teams would be no-shows – “I don’t know, I really don’t,” he said – he’s optimistic teams will show up to play.

“I’m not a teacher, I’m just a cop who runs a basketball tournament, so I don’t have any inside knowledge, but I have heard – and this is third-hand, mind you – that the (job action) is not supposed to affect events that are already paid for, or have contracts signed,” he said. “And we have a pretty big contract with the Langley Events Centre.” Buis’ confidence was buoyed by the fact that the senior girls basketball provincials, which ran March 7-10 at Vancouver’s Capilano University, were completed without incident

despite the BCTF’s bell-to-bell mandate. Friday, Moffatt said exemptions are made for some events where travel plans for out-oftown teams were already in place, and money already spent. Individual teachers, she added, may still choose to scale back involvement. Sue Keenan, executive director of BC School Sports, the governing body that oversees high school athletics, reinforced Buis’s belief that the boys’ tournament would go ahead. “We are definitely going ahead,” she said.  see page 25

Playoffs begin Friday

Eagles to face Capitals Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The Surrey Eagles’ first-round playoff opponent is one they’ve become very familiar with lately. When the BC Hockey League post-season begins Friday, the Birds will square off with the Cowichan Valley Capitals, who finished just one point back of the Eagles for second place in the Coastal Conference. The conference-champion Powell River Kings will play the fourthplace Coquitlam Express in the Coastal’s other best-of-seven series. The Eagles and Capitals are no strangers to each other, having played three times in the last month, and five times since Christmas. And though the Eagles have sat in first place – and second in the entire BCHL – for much of the last two months of the season, the two clubs are extremely close in talent. Both teams finished with 36 wins on the season, but Surrey managed one more tie than their Vancouver Island rivals, thus securing homeice advantage for the round. And once you break the matchup

In the offensive department, the Caps scored just five goals more than the Eagles over the 60-game regular season, and defensively, Surrey allowed one goal fewer. Both teams had outstanding sea-

sons on home ice – the Eagles lost just five of 30 games in regulation time, while Cowichan lost just seven – which may play into the hands of the Peninsula squad considering they have home-ice advantage. The Eagles are coming off a loss in

their final regular-season contest, a 4-2 defeat to the visiting Westside Warriors Friday, but have the entire week to prepare for the Caps. Against Westside on Friday, Surrey defenceman Steve Koshey opened the scoring 16:46 into the first period, but the Warriors scored

three – from David Pope, Marcus Basra and Max French – in the second frame to take the lead. Alex Hagen replied for Surrey near the end of the period to bring the home team to within one, but it was as close as they’d get. French added  see page 26

A handful of local soccer teams emerged victorious from the Delta Cup, which was hosted by Peace Arch Soccer Club March 3 at South Surrey Athletic Park. Even the rain held off. “It wasn’t too bad at all, just a little windy, that’s it. It was a good day,” Peace Arch Soccer Club president Brandt Watkins said. The Delta Cup featured 28 teams – and more than 400 players – from throughout the Delta Youth Soccer Association – which includes Peace Arch, Ladner, North Delta and Tsawwassen.

In total, six squads from the host club finished first in their respective divisions: Peace Arch United (U11 Development, Group 2); Peace Arch Falcons (U11 House, Group 2); Peace Arch Galaxy (U11 House, Group 4); Peace Arch All-Stars (U12 House, Group 1); Peace Arch Dynamo (U13 House, Group 2); and Peace Arch Gunners (U13 House, Group 3). In addition to the Delta Cup, which was for U11-U14 players, a windup for Peace Arch’s mini and micro divisions (U5-U10) was also held at the park. - Nick Greenizan

FUNDING FOR STUDENTS, NOT FOR WAGE HIKES. The BCTF is demanding a 15 per cent wage hike and other benefits that would cost $2 billion and raise taxes for BC families. Virtually all other public sector unions have settled for no wage increases. It’s unacceptable that schools are disrupted and that students and their families are inconvenienced over an unreasonable salary demand in difficult economic times. The union is making claims and demands that simply don’t add up.

BCTF CLAIMS AND DEMANDS

FACT

The union wants more paid time outside the classroom – sick leave for teachers on call, expanded bereavement and discretionary leave.

The government wants more time for teacher training and to ensure that Pro-D days really are for professional development.

The union says all teaching positions should be selected on the basis of seniority.

The government supports seniority but qualifications must also count so that math teachers teach math, and science teachers teach science.

The union says that teachers who perform poorly in evaluations will be dismissed – ‘one strike and you’re out’.

The government wants to support teacher improvement through a standardized evaluation process.

The union says that government refuses to negotiate.

There has been over a year of negotiations and 78 full bargaining sessions.

The union says that class size limits have been eliminated.

Class size limits will remain in place on all grades across BC.

The union says that BC has 700 fewer special needs teachers.

2100 new teaching assistants have been hired since 2001. And, with a new $165 million Learning Improvement Fund, we will hire more.

It’s time to focus on what matters most in education – BC’s students. That’s why we are focused on per-student funding which is at an all time high, not on wage increases. We all want to do more to make BC’s education system even better. It’s the driving force behind BC’s Education Plan that teachers, parents and students are helping to shape. Teachers care about their students. Parents care about their children’s future.

As a break from practice, White Rock Christian Academy’s senior boys basketball team held a shooting contest Thursday, where the winner, Sam Ykema, was given the honour of wearing the school’s mascot suit during a walk into White Rock for a team dinner.

‘Student-athletes have worked too hard’ Sullivan Heights athletic director  from page 23 Ryan Neufeld (@teacherneuf) “Student-athletes have worked way too hard to get to this point announced, “Dear Sullivan students: I regret to inform you for us to cancel… and to be honest, we have got way too much money, time and effort vested in staging these events.” She, too, allowed for the possibility that some teacher-coaches may not wish to participate, but hoped others would step up if that was the case. “We know that afterschool sports are extra-curricular and NTER ’S I I voluntary… and we have CELEBRATING not just teacher-coaches 20172 CELEBRATING 1974 but community-coaches E RO RE and parent-coaches C K /S U R involved. Teachercoaches are going to have to make a decision and if they are adamant they are not planning on bringing their teams, our hope is that administrators, parentsponsors, other district staff will step up and take their teams forward. “This is about keeping our student-athletes foremost in the fronts of our minds.” Buis said an absent team would be treated in the same manner as one that failed to show up for any other reason, be it weather or travel problems: they’d forfeit the missed game. “But in all my years involved in this tournament – and I go back to the early ’70s, we’ve never had that happen,” he said. “Once, at the Agrodome, we had a stoppage for a couple hours when a backboard broke and we had to find a replacement, but that’s it.” Hoops aside, the highschool sports calendar is typically slower this time of year, though many spring sports are currently practising in advance of their seasons. At many schools, those practices have been cancelled. In a message posted on social media site Twitter last Wednesday,

that all athletics teams are OFF for Thursday and Friday. I will update season status later.” – with files from Gary Ahuja

First-round series begins on Friday  from page 23 an empty-net goal with 1:03 to seal the win for the Warriors, who finished out of the playoffs in the Interior Conference with just 53 points. Andrew Hunt took the loss for Surrey, stopping 21 of 24 shots. Hunt has a chance to be a difference-maker for the Eagles in the playoffs, after a regular season that saw him play in 52 of 60 games, and finish among the league-leaders in most goaltending statistical categories.

33 In Loving Memory of MARILYNE FIDLER Nov. 11, 1946 - March 14, 2004

8 years have passed but not a day goes by that we don’t think of you. Missed, remembered, longed for always. Bringing many tears. Dearly loved by all your friends and those who knew you. Sadly missed by Bill & Teeka, Rick, Willie & Nicole, Lorie & family, Alison & family and all your dear friends.

HIGGINS, Warren Grey Born January 1st, 1928 in Rabbit Lake Saskatchewan. Passed away peacefully at Peace Arch Hospital, on December 6, 2011 at age 83 years. Devoted husband, loving father, grandfather, and great grandfather. Predeceased by his wife of 61 years, Verna in 2009. Survived by his 5 children; Barbara, Karen (Jim) Nicholson, Douglas,

James (Sandi) Higgins, and Roger (Karen) Higgins; also 5 grandchildren; Corri (Mark) Cavezza, Jayne Cowley, Jeff (Lori) Nicholson, Ginger Nicholson, and Alicia; 5 great grandchildren: Brooke & Jayla Davies (Cowley), Morgan Cavezza, Jorden and Shea Nicholson. Also survived by his dear, ever loving sister, Alice Thew, his 2 brothers Terry and Doug Higgins, and numerous nieces and nephews. Warren’s ashes were interred at Victory Memorial Gardens beside his wife Verna on Dec. 16th, 2011 with a graveside service for family and friends. Warren and his wife Verna came to the west coast from Prince Albert, Saskatchewan shortly after the end of WWII, were married and lived in Vancouver for a few years, and finally settled in the Sunnyside area of South Surrey. In 1957, they purchased a building lot, fell the trees that were on it and had them sent to a saw mill, which at the time was located in Crescent Beach. The trees were then made into the lumber that was used to construct the family home, which to this day still stands strong and proud. Warren worked for MacMillan Bloedel (Weyerhauser) New Westminster Lumber Division for 33 years, and was a Millwright there for 28 years. Dad was a very talented craftsman & could fix anything. He also made beautiful wooden pull toys, amongst other things he created. Dad loved to sing and he had an incredible country style voice. He was also a Yodeler extraordinaire and often yodeled to greet family and friends, much to the delight of all who heard him. We will always remember his beautiful smile and the twinkle in his eyes. A very special thank you to all the Doctors and Nurses on the 6th floor for their love, compassion & outstanding quality of care during his final days. Donations may be made to the Canadian Diabetes Assoc. if so desired. Happy Trails Dad, until we meet again. YODEL-AY-DEE-HOO!

There’s a new mattress in town! TM

T3 RECOVERY MATTRESSES

Ironman Mattresses with Celiant® and Cellitex® have been proven in clinical test to reduce pain, increase oxygen levels, and help balance body temperature. Each of these results can have added benefits, including faster healing, increased performance, better quality sleep and improved overall wellness; all of which can help alleviate the symptoms of arthritis and peripheral vascular disease often associated with diabetes. The key to Celliant® lies in its ability to absorb and store electromagnetic (energy) emissions from the human body and release them where they are reabsorbed into the skin and deep muscle tissue, they act as catalysts for natural, biological processes resulting in enhanced oxygen levels, and more balanced body temperature during sleep, rest or physical activity.
