$60,000 worth of damage at T.E. Scott Elementary last year

Surrey resident Gay Taylor stands alongside a Western red cedar in Hazelnut Meadows Park that has been stripped of its bark. Someone has removed the bark from several trees in the popular Newton-area park – an act that is not only illegal, but kills the trees.

Who set fire to school portable? Black Press HOW GOOD IS your memory?

Police are hoping it’s razor sharp as they ask for public assistance in finding those who set fire to a Surrey school portable nine months ago. Damage to the property is estimated to be about $60,000. Last July 30, at about 5 a.m., fire crews were called to T.E. Scott Elementary, near 70 Avenue and 148 Street. On arrival, they found a burning portable in the southeast corner of the school property. Investigators believe the fire was started with some wood supplies that were being stored next to the building. It’s believed the fire was the result of vandalism, but police have yet to identify any suspects. Anyone with more information is asked to contact Const. Dwayne Friesen, General Investigation Services, at 778-593-3166. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

Police are seeking witnesses to a ďŹ re last July at a Surrey school.

DAN PEARCE / CONTRIBUTOR

Barking up the wrong tree ‘Senseless vandalism’ a death sentence for evergreens in Surrey park by Dan Pearce FOR AT LEAST A WEEK, someone has been stripping the bark off of the

Western red cedar trees in Hazelnut Meadows Park. Whether it’s mischievous kids or troublesome adults, area resident Gay Taylor isn’t happy. “They’re going to kill the whole forest,� she said. Taylor, who often walks through the park, was told of the damage by a friend who also frequents the forest near 140 Street and 70 Avenue. After seeing the damage for herself, she called the City of Surrey’s parks department to find a resolution. Taylor said she was told that without the protection of the bark, the trees will eventually die. “I don’t think people realize they’ll kill the trees,� she said. In total, eight trees have been stripped, some around the entire circumference of the trunk, stretching up as high as seven metres. Taylor said she suspects the perpetrators are acting at night, as the park is so regularly used during daylight hours and someone would have seen suspicious activity and reported it.

“I’ve thought about staying out here with some spray or something,� said Taylor, a self-described tree lover. “I’ve asked myself, ‘can I stay out here all night?’� Parks manager Owen Croy said that without bark, there’s no way the trees can actively transport water through the roots and it’s only a matter of time before they will die. “It’s a senseless act of vandalism that will result in the death of eight Western red cedars,� he said. Croy said stripping the bark off the trees is illegal and could result in a $2,000 fine. A dozen signs were erected throughout the park informing people that removal of the bark is strictly prohibited and will lead to the death of the trees. Many of the signs have also since been vandalized. Croy said he has stepped up bylaw patrols in the area to deter people from doing any more damage, but said it’s impossible for officers to be there all the time. If you have any information about the vandalized trees, call 604-5985781.

Remembering Kassandra – one year later Candlelight vigil planned tonight at Sullivan Park by Kevin Diakiw FAMILY AND FRIENDS of Kassandra Kaulius will hold a

candlelight vigil in her memory tonight (Thursday). The evening will mark one year since Kaulius, 22, was killed while heading home from a softball game in Cloverdale. On May 3, 2011, Kaulius was turning onto 152 Street at 64 Avenue, when a Ford Econoline van ran a red light while heading northbound on 152 Street and smashed into Kaulius’s car, killing her instantly.

Natasha Leigh Warren, who police believe was driving the van, was charged three weeks ago with dangerous driving causing death, impaired driving causing death, causing an accident resulting in death and failure to stop at an accident causing bodily harm. She was released from custody under strict bail conditions in mid-April. Kaulius’s father Victor said the vigil will give the community a chance to come out and remember his daughter in a meaningful way. The family has been managing as well as can be expected, he said,

Kassandra Kaulius, 22, was killed when an alleged drunk driver struck her car a year ago.

but recent days have been difficult with charges against Warren being approved and the anniversary approaching. “The last two weeks, and I guess leading up to here, has been, I tell you, harder than the first couple of days,” he said. “We’ve found it really difficult, (with) the finality of it all.” The vigil will be held at 8 p.m. tonight (Thursday), at Sullivan Park, 6272 152 St. The public is welcome, and attendees are encouraged to bring a candle.

Witnesses say Ranjit Singh Cheema, who attended high school in Surrey, was gunned down in an apparent drive-by shooting near his parents’ home in East Vancouver Wednesday morning. At The Leader’s deadline Wednesday afternoon, Vancouver police had not confirmed the identity of the victim. Cheema was a known associate of Bindy Johal, a notorious gangster who was shot to death in December, 1998. Cheema had only recently returned from the U.S., where he served a five-year jail term for drug trafficking. In 2008, Sukh Dhaliwal, then-Liberal MP for Newton-North Delta, made headlines when he wrote a letter of support for Cheema to California District

Dhaliwal described Cheema as a man who would one day return to his family in Canada and seemed committed to rehabilitation. “I personally believe, along with tougher laws, rehabilitation is fundamentally essential to make our society, our country, and our planet a better place to live,” Dhaliwal wrote in the letter on Government of Canada letterhead. “I have no doubt that if he (Cheema) is given support and direction, he will be a strong, active member of his community in years to come.” Despite the support, Cheema was sentenced in California to five years in prison for conspiring to smuggle 200 kilograms of heroin from Pakistan to North America in 1998.

Newton. Coun. Marvin Hunt chairs the Investment and Innovation Committee and says it’s time for some “good positive development in Newton.” Some has occurred and some is on the books, but the committee will see if it can spark some redevelopment. The committee will decide what the investment threshold needs to be, but Hunt thinks it will likely be something less than the $10 million required in City Centre. “I would be thinking Newton would be a little be lower than that, that would be my thoughts on that,” Hunt said. “It would have to be something substantive, it couldn’t be somebody doing a one-storey tiltup thing.” Watts said it’s high time something is done to attract some investment into Newton. “We’ve been limping along with Newton for quite some time,” she said. “And for me it’s very frustrating.” As to what the boundaries of the zone will be, Watts said that will largely be up to the committee, however, she believes it will stretch down to 64 Avenue and King George Boulevard to include the old Surrey Public Market, which is currently under redevelopment. The Investment and Innovation committee will be discussing the plans on May 24.

AT LAST THAT zany bunch in

Ottawa known as the Harper Tories have given me a financial number I can relate to. I can’t get my head around $35 billion for planes, even $1,000 a day limos to ferry ministers from a five star hotel to a five star plus is beyond me. But $16 is a figure I can relate to, it’s about the amount I have left over every month. So when Minister Oda spends $16 on a glass of orange juice I can visualize $16. Just so the Tories know, orange juice is on this week for $8 for two 1.75L containers. You can get 13 glasses of orange juice from a container so at the Tory price that’s $208 per container. If I had the orange juice concession for the Tory caucus I could take in about $2,600/day, enough for two limos for a day.

rey for his entire little life. Since he was 11 months old, once or twice a week, we would go to his favourite place in the world, a drop-in playtime at Options, which is a non-profit organization that has many locations across Surrey. This week we were devastated to hear that funding has been cut to this amazing organiza-

tion, and due to this, programs will have to stop and our drop-in times will be greatly decreased. The worst news is that one of my son’s favourite people in the whole word, Renee, a worker at Options, has had her hours and benefits drastically cut to the point where she may have to look for a new job. I moved to Surrey exactly three years ago and I have been extremely blessed by

Options, a place where my son can learn and grow without me having to worry about any financial barriers. It would be a tragic loss to this community to see this program dwindle away just because of the lack of funds.

A ‘spectacular’ Vaisakhi event THIS YEAR’S annual Vaisakhi

parade to my mind was excellent. I believe Mayor Watts, her team, the parade committee and the various participating temples and, of course, the RCMP and other people involved in security deserve a big vote of thanks for this spectacular event. Indeed there were some problems, but if you look at the enormity of the event – some 200,000 people – it was carried off very well. My neighbours, who are very representative of all corners of the Earth, and of course, our Indian neighbours, were all this year delighted to participate. The food was excellent and the float themes very interesting. I hope this year’s parade will go down as a template for future years. I know my neighbours and myself are very proud of what has been achieved, and again thank you to the people that put it together.

Keep scrubs in hospital

RE: “WORK CLOTHES not for travel,” Letters, April 24. I, like letter writer Tom Zukow, have long had concerns about health care personnel wearing “scrubs” in public. Not only do they add to Vancouver’s reputation as an un-stylish city, but many studies show that superbugs such as MRSA and VRE can quite happily live on hospital linens (ie. uniforms, lab coats, bed curtains) for quite some time. When I started to work at Royal Columbian Hospital 35 years ago, changing from uniform to street clothes was the norm, but somewhere along the way, a change of attitude prevailed. These days the locker room is a lonely place. I wouldn’t mind sharing again. Freda Heinrichs Surrey

Respect transit Care about babies, too RE: “DON’T USE? Shouldn’t have to pay,” Letters, The Leader, April

24. Letter-writer Dale Floyd asks why people who don’t use public transit should have to contribute to it through taxes. Here are three reasons: 1. Even when we can’t use transit ourselves, we gain more space on the road every time someone else boards a bus or SkyTrain. Next time you’re in a traffic jam, try to count the 40 cars closest to you (it’s often impossible to see that far), and then imagine that all those 40 drivers were in a bus instead. Multiply by 100 more buses, and you get the picture. 2. Even if we can’t use transit right now in our lives, there will be times when we can. We’ll change jobs, or need to economize, or get too old to drive, or whatever – and we’ll be grateful that we have a healthy transit system in place. Like public health care, public transit needs to be supported by everyone, even during periods of our lives when we rarely if ever use it. 3. The idea of paying taxes for only those services that we personally use is a very slippery slope. Why should I contribute to ice rinks, swimming pools, sports arenas, soccer fields, skateboard parks, or even schools and community centres? I don’t use any of those. But I gladly pay, because those are great facilities for many other people, and they’re a big part of what makes our whole community healthy and vibrant. We’re all in this together. And looking at the even bigger picture: When the costs of education, health, transit and other expensive services are shared, the middle class benefits and prospers. If each of us pays only for those services we use right now, ultimately only the rich will be able to afford what they need, when they need it. D. Jones

Dickhout later testified that he construed the manner in which Lypchuk responded as an attempt to assault his fellow officer. Dickhout, 60, has not carried a Taser since the incident because of distress and concern about Lypchuk’s injuries and the prospect of injuring others, according to Pitfield’s notice. Dickhout has not been the subject of any previous disciplinary action. The incident took place only one month prior to the death of Robert Dziekanski, who died shortly after being tasered by RCMP officers in Vancouver airport.

Metro takes dim view of Langley breakaway Creating new regional district not a priority: Watts

by Jeff Nagel

METRO Vancouver lead-

ers so far aren’t putting much stock in suggestions that South of Fraser cities could break away and form their own regional district. Langley Township Mayor Jack Froese has said he wants his community to look at splitting from Metro and TransLink and either joining the Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) or forming a new partnership with Abbotsford, which wants to leave the FVRD. He cited disappointment over TransLink’s decision to freeze transit upgrades such as the promised Highway 1 RapidBus until its finances are sorted out. But Metro board chair Greg Moore said he thinks the idea is mainly being driven by Abbotsford, and warned a breakaway could be costly to Langley taxpayers. “I would suggest the cost implications would be quite high for good quality services they already receive,” he said. Moore said fans of the idea seem to mix up the roles of TransLink and Metro Vancouver, wrongly assuming Langley would stop paying the 17 cent per litre TransLink gas tax by leaving Metro. He said that would depend on the province’s willingness to let a breakaway municipality exit TransLink as well. Likewise, he said, anger over the impending tolls on the Port Mann Bridge have nothing to do with the regional district. “That’s a provincial government toll,” Moore said. “We won’t see a penny of that at the regional district or TransLink even.” Moore said he welcomes cities that want to probe the value they get from the regional district, and added he and the board’s vice-chair will visit each council in the weeks ahead to answer questions about Metro services and funding. Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan said Metro isn’t perfect and

Dianne Watts Langley politicians are within their rights to ask tough questions. The bulk of Metro’s budget is spent delivering drinking water, treating sewage and disposing of garbage. Corrigan, the regional planning committee chair, said it’s not clear how Metro might unravel the financing of its water, sewer and other infrastructure in the event of a breakup, but said “anything can be accomplished” if there’s political will. He said the talk may be just “sabre rattling” born out of frustration with TransLink. But Corrigan also said Langley politicians have themselves to blame for pushing the province to expand the Highway 1 freeway, which Metro planners warned would undercut future demand for transit. “When you spend $3.5 billion on a road and a bridge, there isn’t an awful lot left over for transit,” he said. Having pushed successfully to twin the Port Mann Bridge, Corrigan said, Langley residents are now “absurdly” complaining about both the tolls on it as well as the lack of transit. “They could have borrowed $3.5 billion to build an integrated transit system in the Fraser Valley,” he said. “But they wanted roads and bridges. Now they say they want transit too.” Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts said she’s not interested in trying to form a new South of Fraser area regional district at this time. “That’s not a priority on our agenda,” she said. “The priority on our agenda is working together and identifying how we’re going to

take 70 per cent of the region’s future growth and what infrastructure needs to be put in place.” She said that will require local cities, Metro Vancouver, TransLink and the province working well together. “We have to coordinate our efforts,” she

said. “It’s not about doing things and planning in isolation.” Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender said South of Fraser mayors have been meeting to discuss common issues but added “it’s a major leap to say we’re going to pull out of Metro.” jnagel@surreyleader.com

POLICE ARE warning

more retaliatory gang violence could break out here after the murder of a B.C. organized crime figure in Mexico. Thomas Gisby was shot point-blank Saturday in a Starbucks in Nuevo Vallarta by two gunmen who then fled. He had previously been the target of a Jan. 16 bombing in Whistler, where Gisby and another man camped

in an RV escaped with minor injuries. RCMP quickly issued a warning that Gisbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slaying could trigger revenge attacks or violence between his gangland allies and enemies in B.C. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We expect this would result in heightened tension between various organized crime groups in the Lower Mainland and, potentially, the province,â&#x20AC;? RCMP Sgt. Duncan Pound said.

Gisby is said by police to have been a â&#x20AC;&#x153;highranking organized crime figureâ&#x20AC;? who headed up his own B.C. gang â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which they referred to as the Gisby Crime Group â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but also had links to other B.C. groups involved in violent attacks in recent years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The criminal activity in which he was engaged extended across Canada and internationally,â&#x20AC;?

There are reports the middle-aged Gisby may have had ties to Metro Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dhak and Duhre crime groups, whose members were targeted after gangster Jonathan Bacon was shot to death in Kelowna last summer. Over the past two years, at least two other murders of alleged gangsters are believed by police to be linked to the strife between the groups. Police believe the body count may have been higher had it not been for past public warnings and officer efforts to caution people affiliated with gangsters about the risk. Transit Police Const. Doug Spencer, a gang crime expert, said Gisby was â&#x20AC;&#x153;quite far up the food chainâ&#x20AC;? dealing drugs and guns and never sided with other

major players. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, somebody felt threatened by him so they took a shot at his motor home and missed that,â&#x20AC;? Spencer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then they were pretty much obliged to finish him off because they knew heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to come looking.â&#x20AC;? He said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not clear whether the killing was ordered by B.C. rivals or a Mexican cartel. Gisby reportedly left B.C. in late January to live in the Mexican town near the western resort city of Puerto Vallarta. The RCMP has dispatched two B.C. officers to Mexico to support Mexican investigators, in addition to two liaison officers who were already based in the country. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with files from CTV

Burns Bog Conservation Society has filed a lawsuit against the federal government over construction of the South Fraser Perimeter Road.

Burns Bog court challenge will be heard Defender Eliza Olson pleased judge considers issue serious by Jeff Nagel DEFENDERS of Burns

Bog will have to wait until this summer to find out if their court challenge fighting the South Fraser Perimeter Road will succeed. The lawsuit filed by the Burns Bog Conservation Society against the federal government was to be heard this month, but has been put off to July 12. The society wants the court to hit Ottawa with hefty fines, uphold the conservation covenant that protects Burns Bog, and force the route of the $1.4-billion truck freeway to be relocated further away from the bog and its sensitive hydrology. “If this conservation covenant can be set aside and ignored it means there are no conservation covenants in Canada that are safe,” society president Eliza Olson said. She called the delay frustrating – the northeast third of the perimeter road opens in December and the rest of the 40-kilometre truck route is to be complete by the end of 2013. But Olson said she’s pleased the federal court judge agreed the lawsuit is not frivolous and raises serious issues that must be heard. Delta council had

previously received legal advice that the covenant could not be used to block the perimeter road or other development beyond the bog footprint on which it applies. The 2,042-hectare

raised peat bog, often dubbed the lungs of the Lower Mainland, is considered an important carbon sink – further damage to it could release trapped carbon and contribute to global warming.

This October, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be some changes to our residential curbside waste collection service. This October, the City of Surrey will be changing our curbside waste collection service as part of a Metro Vancouver regional goal to achieve 70% annual waste diversion by 2015. Surrey is taking this one step further. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re planning to collect your kitchen and yard waste separately so we can convert it into carbon neutral fuel.

Metro pares budget cap tax hit at 2.5% Typical home to pay $537 next year as water costs climb by Jeff Nagel

Greg Moore said regional district administrators revised the targets on their own – without a board directive – and said the move was not related to the recent public outcry over the efficiency of TransLink. “They’ve heard loud and clear last year and this year that we need to work as hard as we can to keep whatever increases to a minimum,” said Moore, mayor of Port Coquitlam. He said the pressure from voters to “do more with less” had already come through clearly in the lead-up to last November’s municipal elections. Metro administrators

METRO Vancouver has

scrapped plans to raise regional taxes and fees by 12 per cent next year and set a new target that limits the increase for each household to no more than 2.5 per cent in 2013. The average homeowner will pay $524 to Metro this year, up from $513 in 2011, with most of the money going to fund drinking water, sewage treatment and waste handling. That had been projected to rise to $587 in 2013, but the lower revised target would have the typical home pay $537, or $13 more next year. Metro board chair

have not yet spelled out where they intend to find the required savings, but that’s expected to come before the regional board approves the 2013 budget next October. The regional district finished 2011 with a $47 million surplus on its $608 million operating budget and $304 million capital budget. The surplus, mainly due to deferred projects and lower debt costs, will be used to reduce the debt and therefore future interest costs on major capital projects. More than half of the increased hit to homes over the past year is attributed to rising water capital costs.

Metro spent more than $800 million in the past several years to filter water from its North Shore reservoirs and an array of other costly projects are either underway or on the horizon, including $250 million to build a new earthquake-proof water main under the Fraser River to help supply Surrey and $110 million to add ultraviolet disinfection at the Coquitlam reservoir. Moore said cities can cut their water costs to Metro by promoting conservation, because of the user-pay system. “If you do a good campaign to reduce the per capita water consumption in your municipality, you’re going to pay less than your neighbours,” he said. But Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan said a city that out-conserves its neighbours isn’t actually saving Metro money but merely shifting costs onto other cities. The region as a whole still pays the same fixed costs of infrastructure and staff for the water system, he said, so if all cities reduced water use equally, none would save money – they’d all pay more as the costs of the system climb. “By installing methods to conserve you can beat out your partner,” Corrigan said. “I don’t know in the long run if that is the spirit of cooperation we want to achieve.” He said residents see water as a free resource and don’t realize the large expense of treating and distributing it. The region runs 21 reservoirs, five sewage treatment plants, 50 pump stations and 1,100 kilometres of sewer and water mains.

Surrey crab harvester fined Phong Thanh Do guilty of 22 violations on Vancouver Island Black Press

A COMMERCIAL crab harvester from Surrey was fined $5,500 in Port Hardy Provincial Court after being found guilty of numerous violations of the Fisheries Act. Phong Thanh Do appeared in court on Feb. 16 facing three counts of failing to comply with the conditions of his commercial fishing license. He was found guilty of 22 violations including: using commercial crab traps that lacked the required identification tags, using treated rot cord on his traps, and using two traps with undersized escape rings. He was ordered to pay $250 for each identified violation, and some of his fishing gear was forfeited. He was charged following an incident on Nov. 9, 2011, when Fisheries and Oceans Canada officers patrolling the area near Port Elizabeth, off northern Vancouver Island, inspected the a commercial crab vessel being operated by Do. The officers identified numerous violations of the conditions of Do’s commercial licence and seized 10 crab traps as evidence. The conviction of Do marks the first successful prosecution of a trap tag violation. To protect crab stocks, harvesters are required to return female and undersized dungeness crabs immediately to the water. Harvesters can only catch males that are large enough to have mated at least twice (at least 165 mm in width, measured in a straight line through the widest part of the shell, from outside the points), and are advised to measure crabs using a caliper device. Regulations under the Fisheries Act also require untreated cotton cord to be used on crab traps to ensure that if the trap is lost, the section secured by the cord will rot, allowing captive crab

A Harbour Air floatplane. under a seat are extremely hard to retrieve and don in the critical seconds after a crash when occupants are trying to escape a submerged aircraft. But commercial floatplane operators are divided on the use of life vests throughout flights. Harbour Air/Westcoast Air executive

vice-president Randy Wright said he and others in the industry fear a panicked passenger might inflate a PFD inside a submerged plane, trapping himself and others. “You’ve got to get people out with the life jackets and without inflating it inside or they’ll trap themselves,” he said.

Current PFDs in use would not hold up to continuous wear either, the panel heard. But the report argues those concerns can be addressed and don’t detract from the overall life-saving potential of mandatory life vest use. Transport Canada has the final say on whether PFD use would be required and Wright said he is working with federal authorities on how it might be done. The 19 recommendations also call for other upgrades, including satellite tracking systems and power shut-off switches to reduce the chance of fire after a crash. Wright said Harbour Air has already implemented many recommendations, including lighted strips leading to exits and pop-out windows to aid escape. More than 200 people died in a total of 111 fatal plane crashes in B.C. during the 2000s. Commercial flights accounted for more than a third of the incidents. Three of the four crashes considered in the review involved flights that were carrying workers to remote job sites on the coast. Five died in a crash in the Knight Inlet area in 2005, another five perished in 2008 when a plane en route to a logging operation hit a steep slope near Port Hardy and another seven heading that same year to a worksite at Toba Inlet died when their plane crashed at South Thormanby Island. In 2009, six more passengers died when a commercial flight hit the water at Lyall Harbour on Saturna Island. The pilot and a seventh passenger escaped from that rapidly sinking plane, but the other occupants drowned inside. Only two of the four doors could be opened. “Of the seven life vests available onboard, five had remained in their stowage pouches under the seats, while two were found outside of their pouches, but had not been utilized,” the report says.

No rush to judge pipeline

INCREDIBLE DEAL! $126,900

Surrey and Coquitlam cautious about Kinder Morgan plan by Jeff Nagel SOME METRO Vancou-

ver mayors are taking a wait-and-see approach to Kinder Morgan’s plan to twin its Trans Mountain oil pipeline through the Lower Mainland. Unlike the mayors of Vancouver and Burnaby – who are already opposing the $5-billion project, citing the higher risks from a five-fold increase in oil tanker traffic – those further inland along the pipeline corridor want more information before taking any position. Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart said his city has no shoreline at risk so his council will focus on the land risks of the pipeline and the construction-related impacts on local residents. “It goes through back yards and front yards,” he said. “Our biggest high school’s property is bisected by the pipeline.” It’s the same story in northern neighbourhoods of Surrey and Langley Township, where the Kinder Morgan right-of-way stretches through several established neighbourhoods. The company has said the new pipeline may deviate from the existing right-of-way in some urban areas. Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson wants to force oil carriers to take out additional insurance to cover the impacts of a worst-case spill fouling local shorelines. Although tankers are already insured against spills and have cleanup agreements in place, Robertson claims cities could be on the hook for extra costs. Since the port is federally regulated it’s unclear how Vancouver could enforce the mayor’s proposed bylaw. Stewart said he’s also heard suggestions that affected cities press for some sort of benefits package to compensate for the extra risk and disruption. But he said he’s not sure it would be right to single out Kinder Morgan when power lines and gas lines already run through his city that primarily serve customers elsewhere. “Our region is a very complex network of infrastructure,” Stewart said, pointing out the risks from trains that

An oil tanker heads through the Second Narrows. roll through carrying hazardous materials. “I don’t want to single this one out as being particularly different,” he said of the oil pipeline. “It’s not nearly as explosive as some of the things that go through our community.” Surrey Mayor Dianne

Watts, who chairs Metro Vancouver’s port cities committee, said it’s too early to pass judgment because Kinder Morgan is still far away from formally filing an application to the National Energy Board, a move expected after as much as two years of company-led public consultations. “It’s really important to ensure we have all of the information,” she said. “We want to know what emergency response measures are in place. We want to know what the environmental measures will be and any other impacts we need to have brought forward to us.” The committee will be meeting with officials from the port and Kinder Morgan in the weeks ahead on the proposal, which would expand Trans Mountain

pipeline capacity from 300,000 barrels per day now to 850,000. Kinder Morgan officials have estimated the number of oil tankers loading in Burnaby could climb from 30 to 70 per year currently to between 300 and 360. That’s based on the existing 650,000-barrel Aframax tankers – which officials say could continue to be used – although Kinder Morgan may pursue the use of much bigger Suezmax tankers, which would require the dredging of the Second Narrows. Abbotsford Mayor Bruce Banman said his city needs to work with Kinder Morgan to ensure there’s proper consultation on local concerns, and noted his city stands to receive an extra $1 million or more in property tax each year for the expanded pipeline corridor.

Students pitch clean energy on global stage Pair spent three months in India on behalf of SFU Black Press A STINT ON a global

stage has left a pair of Simon Fraser University students ready for more in the world of international business. Jasmin Bhandal and Ranjot Dhanju spent three months in India as part of SFU’s B.C. India Mobility Initiative working for Surreybased Oxus Nexus, a corporate services company. Their roles as feasibility analysts involved uncovering market potentials in India for the company and its clients in the biotech/ clean tech industry, largely in Bangalore, and culminated in Mumbai with their address to a conference room of international delegates on clean energy concepts. Since their return, the company has been busy with a “deluge of leads” and partnership follow-ups. Melissa Andruk, external relations manager for Oxus Nexus, says, “the students’ deliverables, successes and work has been nothing less than spectacular.” The pair, representing Mantra Energy Alternative’s Electro Reduction of CO2 (ERC) technology, presented at India’s International Engineering Sourcing Show (IESS). The company was one of five representing Canada in the area of

clean technology, with themes ranging from solar power and wasteto-energy to their own pitch for carbon capture and recycling technology. “Each of the companies showcased their technologies and there was a lot of interest in what we had to say,” says Bhandal, who likened the show to the “Olympics” of engineering. “Their responses to our discussion, and to both of us, being young students from SFU, was more than we had anticipated.” Andruk says the two not only did an outstanding job presenting at the symposium’s final day but also received mention in the Canadian High Commissioner’s closing address. “When the interns were first hired, we wanted to ensure that the two candidates would be able to cultivate an experience for themselves as well as deliver on their targets and goals,” says Andruk. “These interns have done just that. While they are achieving their targets they are also managing to take in the sights and sounds of India.” Bhandal is a marketing and finance major in her final year and hopes to go into business development and new venture consulting. Dhanju, a Surrey resident, is a third-year

GVHBA to hold annual spring home renovation seminar

Mark your calendars for May 15 With about $7.8 billion expected to be spent on home renovation this year in B.C. alone, the Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association will hold its annual spring home renovation seminar on May 15 to give homeowners a few tips about hiring the best renovator. The event will take place from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at the Croation Cultural Centre. More than 40 RenoMark renovators and suppliers will be available before the seminar between 5:30 and 7:30 so homeowners can discuss their plans. To be accepted into the RenoMark program, contractors must adhere to a 10-condition code of conduct. “There is no shortage of fly-by-night

operators taking advantage of trusting homeowners,” says GVHBA President and CEO Peter Simpson. “Dealing in the cash-only underground economy exposes homeowners to personal liability and close scrutiny from municipal bylaw officials, provincial safety-compliance authorities and others.” Participants will learn about various stages of the renovation process, from design to choosing a contractor. The seminar is free and preregistration is required. Attendees are asked to bring something for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. Register at gvhba.org or call 778-565-4288.

space to your home. Most units feature beautiful views, so you may have some trouble tearing yourself away from spending all your time outside taking in the scenery, including Mount Baker. There are three different interior schemes available: Craftsman Traditional, Casual Contemporary and Modern Chic. The two contemporary schemes include stone countertops, a sleek stainless-steel feature hood fan in

the kitchen and white satin flat panel upper cabinets and Teak or Wenge laminate flat panel lower cabinets, among other modern details. The traditional scheme switches things up with an architectural stove hood centrepiece with a custom Broan hood fan and classic Victorian cabinetry in a rich, dark wood, complemented by granite countertops. “Purchasers have the ability to pick and choose,” Carlsen says. “So far it’s been about 70-30 (per cent) towards the traditional.” Both schemes feature stainless-steel appliances, under-cabinet lighting and a spacious ensuite bathroom with a walk-in shower and ceramic tile surround. Every home includes in-suite laundry, so you’ll never need to worry about making time for getting a load in the wash. Woodbridge built on the lessons learned from their past project, Willow Grand, when they decided on what would be included in Salix. “It genuinely makes me excited that we covered a lot of the bases that purchasers were looking for,” Carlsen says. Among them is the increased storage space that each home at Salix has, including kitchen pantries and an individual secure storage locker in the parking area that Carlsen calls the “mini-garage.” The neighbourhood has been one of the big draws for buyers, Carlsen says. “We’re really close to everything Willowbrook (shopping centre) has to offer,” he notes. The surrounding neighbourhood is quiet and family friendly, with several schools, restaurants and leisure activities just minutes away. “This is an opportunity to own on the Clayton (Heights) hillside at Langley City prices,” Carlsen says. “It’s never been done before.” Salix opened for sale in mid-April, and already over 15 per cent of the 69 homes have been sold. “The response has been fantastic,” Carlsen says. “We’ve hit the mark with our storage lockers, options and price point.” For a limited time, buyers will be able to take advantage of some free incentives Woodbridge is offering, including a $2,000 kitchen upgrade, a $1,000 laundry upgrade, window screens and a security system. Early birds are also able to choose where their parking stall will be, along with their mini-garage. Homeowners should be able to take possession of their new homes in the fall of 2013. Homes start at $139,900. For more information, visit salixliving.com or call 604-530-0054.

‘It’s never been done before’

Plenty to love at Woodbridge’s Salix by Kerry Vital

Woodbridge Homes has hit it out of the park with their newest condominium development, Salix in Surrey’s rapidly growing neighbourhood of Clayton Heights. “There’s really something here for everybody,” says sales manager Rob Carlsen. “There’s a great selection of plans.” He’s not exaggerating. With 15 different floorplans in a range of one-, two- and three-bedroom configurations from 474 to 1,283 square feet, you won’t have a problem finding your perfect home. The five-storey Georgian-inspired building features a red brick exterior, lush landscaping and classic iron work,

and every home features a patio or balcony. Oversize windows let natural light pour in while the nine-foot ceilings (10 feet on the top and bottom floors) add an incredible sense of

We’re really close to everything Willowbrook has to offer,” says Salix sales manager Rob Carlsen.

Salix offers two choices for your perfect kitchen. The modern contemporary scheme, top, includes stone countertops and a stainless-steel hood fan, while the traditional scheme, above, features granite countertops and dark wood cabinets.

United has two in final Surrey club at Provincial Cup by Rick Kupchuk THE SURREY United

Soccer Club will be chasing a very rare double May 12 in Burnaby. Both its men’s and women’s teams are in their respective Provincial Cup finals, one victory away from qualifying for the Canadian Club National Championship Oct. 3-8 in Winnipeg. It’s nothing new for the Surrey United women, who are the defending national champions and eighttime defending B.C. champions. United edged Metro Women’s Soccer League (MWSL) rivals North Shore Renegades 1-0 last Sunday at Cloverdale Athletic Park. Surrey will kick off against Columbus FC at 1:30 p.m. Columbus finished second to United in the MWSL Premier Division. The Surrey Firefighters United men’s team won it’s third consecutive game in the Provincial Cup knockout competition, blanking PoCo FC of the Fraser Valley Soccer League 1-0 Saturday in Port Coquitlam. Jeff Clarke slammed

home a pass from Angus Burke for the game’s only goal in the 65th minute. United goaltender Paul Shepherd stopped a couple of dangerous PoCo FC shots in the final 15 minutes to earn the shutout. Surrey will face the Delta Hurricanes at 4 p.m. in the Provincial Cup final. The Hurricanes also won 1-0, defeating the Coquitlam Metro Ford Wolves Sunday to set up an all-Vancouver Metro Soccer League (VMSL) provincial final. Gary Badesha set up Cam Hundal for the Delta goal, and Drew Smiley got the shutout in the Hurricanes goal. United finished fourth in the 12-team Premier Division of the VMSL with a 12-2-8 (won-tiedlost) record, 12 points out of the top spot and just three up on fifth place Delta, which was 10-5-7. In two head-to-head meetings in league play, Delta won both games. The Hurricanes blanked Surrey 1-0 on Nov. 23 in Cloverdale, then posted a 3-0 win Feb. 28 at North Delta’s John Oliver Park.

Jays lose three to A’s North Delta wins one of four, Chiefs slump continues By Rick Kupchuk OVER A four-game series

last weekend, the North Delta Blue Jays managed to outscore the Okanagan Athletics. Usually, that’s a good thing. But in Kelowna, it was enough to earn just one victory over the leaders of the B.C. Premier Baseball League. The Jays lost three consecutive one-run games before closing out the weekend with a 5-0 victory. North Delta’s won-loss record fell to 5-8, dropping the Jays a half-game out of a playoff position. Late-inning heroics lifted the Athletics to the two wins Saturday. A run in the top of the sixth inning gave North Delta a 6-4 lead, before the Athletics scored three in the bottom half of the frame. James Ward hit a two-run single to tie the game, then second the winner on another base hit from Josh Croft. Brad Antchak was three-for-four at the plate for the Jays, with a double and three runs batted in. North Delta led game two 3-1 after six innings,

Okanagan Athletics third baseman Dawson Yates slides safely into second base while North Delta Blue Jays shortstop Clint Taylor watches the ball go into the outfield during a PBL game Sunday at Elks Stadium in Kelowna. but the Kelowna crew crossed the plate three times in the seventh inning for a 4-3 victory. Clint Taylor was the offensive leader for the Blue Jays, driving in two runs on a pair of singles. Starting pitcher Shane Wlodarczak took the loss, allowing four earned runs on dive hits and four walks while striking out seven batters.

The home team did it again in the weekend’s third game Sunday morning, erasing a 3-0 North Delta lead, scoring the tying run in the bottom of the seventh inning and getting the winner with two out in the bottom of the 10th. The offensive highlight for North Delta was a triple from Wlodarczak which drove in the game’s

first run. He would score for a 2-0 lead after one inning. The Jays took an early lead in the series finale Sunday afternoon, and the pitching of Sodai Hoshi was enough to get the win. Hoshi allowed just three hits and three walks over the seven innings for the shutout. Taylor led the offence with a pair of hits, two RBIs and a run scored. Antchak and Riley Grewal also collected two hits. The Jays are at home at Mackie Park Sunday for two games against the 5-7 Parksville Royals. The first contest is set for 11 a.m. The Whalley Chiefs had their losing streak extended to nine games after three losses on the weekend. The Chiefs lost twice on the road Saturday to the Coquitlam Reds by scores of 5-4 and 1-0. Whalley carried a 3-0 lead into the sixth inning of the first game, but the Reds rallied to tie the contest and force an extra inning. James Matthews doubled to score Matthew Yee for a 4-3 Chiefs lead in the top of the eight inning, but Coquitlam responded with a two-out double that score both the tying and winning runs for the victory. Hayden Malcolm led the Chiefs with a pair of doubles. Whalley was held to three hits in game two, two from designated hitter Connor Rogers. Sunday at home against the Vancouver Cannons, the Chiefs left 10 men on base in a 4-0 loss. Braeden Allemann was two-for-two with a pair of walks for Whalley, which is now in the league basement at 1-10.

Mikado’s musical mayhem Comic operetta, running May 9-19 at the Coast Capital Playhouse, marks 30 years for Surrey’s Fraser Valley Gilbert & Sullivan Society by Alex Browne

T

he Fraser Valley Gilbert & Sullivan Society and producer Kate Bethell are pulling out all stops for the 30th anniversary production, The Mikado, which comes to White Rock’s Coast Capital Playhouse May 9 to 19. There’s star quality aplenty in this version, directed by Dann Wilhelm, who played the role of “wandering minstrel” Nanki-Poo in the society’s outstanding 2006 production (though a first time director for the society, Wilhelm has wielded the baton as musical director for several productions). First and foremost there’s tenor Mark Donnelly – renowned as “Mr. O Canada,” anthem singer for Canucks games – who takes the title role as Mikado (ruler) of Japan in W.S. Gilbert and Sir Arthur Sullivan’s witty, tuneful, and thoroughly ridiculous, 1885 operetta. “It’s the first time I’ve ever worked with Mark before – he’s a very talented and very funny guy.” Wilhelm promises the role will be a revelation to anyone who knows Donnelly strictly through his more serious classical concert side, or even his spirited leading off the anthem – and holding the microphone ophone up so that fans at the arena or at home can sing along too. The director said Donnelly has been cracking up fellow players at rehearsals both with his droll, dry mannerr and his newly penned lyrics to the Mikado’s introductoryy song in which he “does poke ke some fun at himself as anthem hem singer. “Who knew he wass this funny?” Wilhelm added. ded.

high school and university students will hit the North Delta stage this month to spread a little laughter – and raise some funds for sick children. KP Productions presents A Midsummer Night’s Musical, based on William Shakespeare’s comical play, from May 24-26. The non-profit theatre com-

pany was founded three years ago by sisters Karina and Kazandra Pangilinan, who are both current students at UBC Sauder School of Business and graduates of Seaquam Secondary in North Delta. Being fans of both literature and musical theatre inspired the pair to bring their favorite works of literature to life through musical productions. Past productions

have included Pride and Prejudice: The Musical and The Musical Importance of Being Earnest, which collectively raised $4,300 for BC Children’s Hospital through donations. This year, they hope to raise $5,000 for the hospital over three performances.

Bloody well done

BC RAPID TRANSIT Company (BCRTC), the operators of SkyTrain’s Expo and Millennium Lines, and Canadian Blood Services, B.C. & Yukon, have set a new record for units of blood collected in the BC Bloodmobile in one day – by beating their former record-setting donation. Forty-six units of blood were collected at BCRTC’s SkyTrain Operations and Maintenance Centre on April 19, breaking the old BC Bloodmobile record of 45 units which SkyTrain employees set on Dec. 22, 2011. The 46 units of blood donated will improve the lives of 138 people.

Zumbathon for cancer Seventy-five participants – including Lana Levitskaia (left) – took part in a two-hour Zumbathon led by zumba instructor Cherie Seidler (above) on April 28 at Erma Stephenson Elementary School. The event was a fundraiser for the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer, a June 16-17 event that will benefit the BC Cancer Foundation. The Zumbathon raised $1,390, more than half of the $2,500 minimum fundraising required for each ride participant – in this case local resident Linda Tremblay. For more information, visit www. conquercancer.ca

Cheque out these bakers Cindrich Elementary School’s ‘Delicious Baking Team’ trio of Jasmine Kamboj, Manjot Kalkat and Michelle Prasad sold cupcakes, cookies, and lemonade to school staff during a two-week period to raise $231.81 for Surrey Memorial Hospital (SMH). The Grade 4 students proudly visited the SMH Foundation office recently to present the results of their work.

The list includes plants such as Christmas rose, Oregon grape and chives. “The purpose of the study was to comprise a resource list for local gardeners and farmers based on observations of which perennials attracted the most pollinators,” said Earthwise Society Executive Director and Feed The Bees Community Campaign co-chair Patricia Fleming. “The study clearly showed bees’ preference for specific species, and even cultivars.” The Earthwise Garden is an ecological demonstration garden in Tsawwassen with more than 300 varieties of low-maintenance plantings, grown without the use of chemicals. It is a companion to the Earthwise Farm, a twoacre organic teaching farm, operated by the nonprofit Earthwise Society. “We host two honeybee hives at Earthwise Farm and there is an additional hive on an adjacent property, along with mason bee houses on site,” said Fleming. “The presence of so many pollinators close by presented an exceptional opportunity to study and record food preferences.” Observations were made weekly from mid-May until mid-September 2011, and periodically thereafter (depending on the weather). Feed The Bees Community Campaign co-chair Ian Tait said the results of the study will make it easy for individuals, businesses, organizations and governments to get on board and plant the right kind of plants to provide a continuous source of pollen and nectar throughout the growing season. “When you consider that one out of every three spoonfuls of food we put in our mouths is dependant on a bee or pollinator, the Feed the Bees campaign is critically important to the agricultural community,” said Tait. “Also to food security, to our local, regional and national economies, and to our collective existence.” When carefully selected, plants that attract bees can thrive in the home garden or farm. Recommended plants are reliably perennial and, if properly sited, will perform well with minimal maintenance. The Feed the Bees list includes recommends native plants, as well as other effective pollinator plants. The non-native species recommended are non-invasive and perform well locally. The study “Bee Friendly Plants for Your Garden and Farm” can be downloaded through the Feed The Bees website, www.feedthebees.org/resources Printed copies are available at the Earthwise Farm Store, 6400 3 Ave. in Tsawwassen. Recommended plants are available at local nurseries or may be purchased directly from Earthwise Society. Earthwise plants are grown without pesticides and taken from divisions from the Earthwise Garden.
