Nearly a year after a car plunged through a railing of the Serpentine River bridge in South Surrey – submerging the driver for 90 minutes – a report on the fatal crash has been released. At a Monday briefing, Ministry of Transportation bridge and traffic engineers said an examination of the section of guard rail that failed to prevent the driver from crashing into the Serpentine River on Feb. 28, 2011 showed there was no structural problem with the bridge. Regardless, the 1961-era bridge will be beefed up with more con-

Beachside memorial for one becomes a ceremony for two

Remembering friends Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

Organizers of a Sunday afternoon beachside memorial for 22-year-old White Rock resident Colin Dow – who died suddenly on Valentine’s Day – were forced to make it a double ceremony after Dow’s friend, 26-year-old Chris Cederfeldt, died two days later in an unrelated car crash. About a dozen friends of both men gathered on White Rock’s East Beach near “Brocks Rock�, a carved stone memorial for another young man who died too soon, White Rock resident Brock Shannon who was killed in a freak car accident in 2007. They cast flowers in the water and wrote messages to their friends on helium balloons, then released them into the air. The event was organized by Siara Bradshaw, a friend of Dow. “He was a beautiful person, the most lovable person ever, and this is just our way of saying that we love him,� Bradshaw said.

Participants said the two men were friends with each other, and both were area residents. “I’m here for all of them,� said Billie Waite. “They’re in a better place now.� She wrote a message on a star-shaped balloon that said both men would “live forever in our hearts and will be forever missed.� Cederfeldt, a former Kamloops resident, was killed in a crash on the Coquihalla highway on Thursday (Feb. 16). Police said Cederfeldt was driving a small car that crossed the centre line and collided with a semi truck near the Inks Lake exit just south of Kamloops. Slippery road conditions were believed to be a contributing factor. RCMP and the coroner’s service are investigating. Dow, who used to attend Elgin Park Secondary school in South Surrey, passed away unexpectedly in Vancouver on Tuesday (Feb. 14). Details were not disclosed. – with files from Black Press

news Construction announced last October for eight projects in Surrey

Call for less talk, more action on schools Sheila Reynolds Black Press

A group of Surrey school advocates is wondering what’s holding up construction of new space in the school district. While capital funding was announced with great fanfare 3½ months ago by Premier Christy Clark, shovels have yet to break ground, says the Ad Hoc Committee Advocating for Surrey Schools in its latest bulletin. The group, made up of representatives from the city, business community, teachers union, CUPE, parents advisory councils and stu-

dents, says it’s concerned about the length of time involved in the “back and forth” communications between the school district and Ministry of Education. The committee has asked Education Minister George Abbott and Surrey-Cloverdale MLA and Minister of Finance Kevin Falcon to look into the capitalproject process and “its effectiveness/appropriateness in addressing the urgent needs of our growing school district.” Last Halloween, the province announced funding for 19 school building projects – eight of them in Surrey – worth $300 million.

Surrey’s included expansions at two crowded high schools: Fraser Heights Secondary, which has 16 portables and Panorama Ridge Secondary, where there are 14. Also targeted were two new elementary schools in the rapidly growing neighbourhoods of South Newton and East Clayton and money to buy land for four new schools – two elementary and two secondary. The latter two are needed to relieve overcrowding at Earl Marriott Secondary and Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary, which both adopted staggered timetables last fall to accommodate overflow.

There are about 250 portables district-wide. Surrey Board of Education chairperson Laurae McNally says the district wants to get construction rolling and points to the province – not the Ministry of Education, but the treasury board – for the sluggish progress. The NDP has also called on the BC Liberals to “get their act together” and give Surrey the go-ahead to start construction. Abbott has said the Surrey school projects are not delayed and that while it would be nice to have schools built overnight, proper planning processes take time.

Southridge School student Bretton Kosick, 18, thanks Gov. Gen. David Johnston, on behalf of B.C. & Yukon Gold Award recipients.

Duke of Edinburgh Gold Awards earned by local youth

A ‘very Canadian and very proud’ distinction Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Bretton Kosick is no stranger to talking in front of a crowd. From his early days at Southridge School, the confident student has claimed public speaking awards. But the now-18-year-old couldn’t help but feel a little nervous Wednesday evening, when he took the podium in front of nearly 500 people at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. It wasn’t so much that the crowd was one of the biggest he’s ever addressed; the trick to that, he said, is to speak to “quadrants” of people. The nerves were more to do with a particular guest: Gov. Gen. David Johnston. Johnston, along with other dignitaries, was on hand to present Duke of Edinburgh’s Gold Awards, a distinction available to all those aged 14 to 25 years – but one only the most determined youth and young adults achieve. Wednesday, Kosick was among 112 such individuals – and one of three from Southridge – who were congratulated for going the distance. The invitation to thank Johnston on behalf of the recipients was an additional honour for Kosick. Johnston was personable and went out of his way to make each recipient feel special, Kosick said afterwards, “but I still got a little nervous, speaking to the Governor General.” “He was very warm to all of us… motivating. Gave us all messages to carry on.” Southridge Grade 12s Soung-Jae Bong and Jae

Won (Chris) Kim were also celebrated during the evening affair, as were Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary students Stephanie Blain and Kaite McKay. Zachary Dallas of the 6th Peace Arch Venturers, Benjamin George and Samuel Hung of Surrey’s Skyhawk RCAC Squadron and White Rock’s Stephanie Nowak, a former Southridge student, were also cited. The Gold Award – the highest achievable in the Duke of Edinburgh program – was one Kosick had been working towards since deciding to take on the challenges in his Grade 8 year. Bronze and Silver awards are also available. Each level requires participants to challenge themselves to higher degrees in four areas: community service, skills, physical recreation and adventurous journey. A fifth area, requiring participants to be away from home with new people for at least five days, is an additional component of the Gold Award. Those who sign on and complete each level – and particularly those achieving Gold –

deserve praise, said Craig McCulloch, Lower Mainland field officer for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, B.C. & Yukon Division. “They’re rather incredible recipients,” McCulloch said. “A lot of people are hundreds of hours past the requirements – they blow right past it.” The awards program is active in approximately 130 countries. It came to Canada in 1963 and, in the decades since, B.C. has distinguished itself as one of this country’s most active regions, McCulloch said. McCulloch, who achieved the Gold Award himself about 20 years ago, knows firsthand what participating in the program can do for youth. For him, it helped guide his career. On a resumé, “it’s definitely a way to stand out,” he added, noting that while anyone can achieve the levels, they cannot be achieved overnight. Each can take up to 18 months to complete. “It requires a commitment. You can’t wake up and do it in a weekend.” Kosick is confident his success in the program will serve him well. “It just shows you’re well-rounded and you’re committed to a challenge and a goal,” he said. “There’s definitely dedication and discipline.” Kosick’s mom, Barbara, said she wasn’t surprised her son took the challenge to its highest level. “He’s very focused,” she said. “He sets his mind to something, he makes sure it happens.” She described Wednesday’s ceremony as one that made attendees feel “very Canadian and very proud.”

The overall crime rate in White Rock dropped in 2011, according to a year-to-year comparison just released by the RCMP. The statistics show police received nearly 7,000 calls for service in the seaside community last year, with Criminal Code offences making up 1,203 of them. That is a drop of 16 per cent from the previous year. There were 116 violent crimes, a category that includes robberies, assaults and domestic-violence incidents. That represents a 44-percent drop from the 206 violent incidents reported in 2010. Overall, property-crime numbers were down, with 21 per cent fewer business break-and-enters, 22 per cent fewer vehicle thefts and 38 per cent fewer thefts from motor vehicles. However, residential break-andenters rose from 75 to 111, an increase of 48 per cent from 2010 to 2011. The number of misdialed 911 calls increased 36 per cent last year, with 1,420 calls to the emergency number that were either dialed in error or accidentally through socalled “pocket dials” of cellphones. There were 1,048 such incidents in 2010.

Falcon unveils budget Surrey-Cloverdale MLA Kevin Falcon is to reveal his first budget as finance minister today, where austerity is expected to be the theme as B.C. finishes a fiscal year with a $3.1 billion projected deficit. Despite slowing revenues and the impact of repaying a $1.6 billion harmonized sales tax transition fund to Ottawa, Falcon has committed to balancing the B.C. budget by the spring of 2013, just before the BC Liberals have promised to call an election.

Bus drivers voted against barriers  from page 1 “It causes apprehension, lack of sleep and anxiety.” It was the third driver assault in Surrey so far this year. In the two previous incidents, drivers were spat upon. In one of them, the female assailant first threatened to stab the driver with a dirty needle she claimed to have. None of the Surrey incidents to date were triggered by drivers challenging passengers over fare evasion, he said, calling them “random acts of violence” that seem more linked to mental health or addiction. Bus drivers were assaulted 146 times last year in Metro Vancouver, a 21 per cent increase from 2010. A total of eight driver assaults have been recorded in the region

A White Rock-bound bus is sidelined in Newton after an assault. so far this year. TransLink has considered installing barriers to protect drivers from passengers, but so far the drivers – who prefer unobstructed interaction with

the public – have voted against installing them. Davies said that decision of the union membership could be reviewed if driver assaults continue to climb.

‘Unique’ circumstances led to plunge  from page 1 tigation as determining that the victim’s Honda Civic hit the railing on one side of the bridge with a glancing blow, then bounced across two lanes to hit the other side at a very sharp angle. According to the report, the impact occurred in a location that led to the failure of the railing. The ministry also announced that other older bridges with heavy traffic are being looked at to see if they need their railings upgraded. However, they stressed that the circumstances that led to the failure of the railing were “unique” and do not mean that the railing on the older bridge was in any way unsafe. A Vancouver woman in her 20s was southbound in the

4600-block of Highway 99, just before 10 a.m., when she plunged through the bridge barrier into the murky water below. Her car settled upside-down on the river bottom and was not visible from the surface, Crescent Beach Coast Guard Auxiliary member Sig Kristensen had told Peace Arch News. The crew was called in to assist in a “barrier search” for the car and driver, monitoring the river downstream for signs the woman or vehicle had drifted from the original crash site. The driver was underwater 90 minutes before a police dive team was able to locate the vehicle and extricate her, unconscious. She was resuscitated and airlifted to hospital, but she died 12 days later.

At the family’s request, police did not release the victim’s name. Police said investigators were confident alcohol, speed and aggressive driving were not factors. A few weeks after the crash, Cpl. Aaron Sproule of the RCMP’s Lower Mainland Traffic Services announced that charges were being recommended against a second driver who is believed to have contributed to the crash. There was no sign that the second vehicle came into contact with the Honda Civic prior to the car breaching the barrier, police said. The second driver’s name has also not been released, pending formal charges. – with files from Tracy Holmes

news New bridge plan assumes six lanes, two for trucks

Pattullo to be discussed

Congratulations Bay Realty Ltd. would like to congratulate

Jeff Nagel Black Press

TransLink aims to open a new and presumably tolled Pattullo Bridge by 2018 and it now wants public comment on design options. The two-year consultation process getting underway is shaping up to be a tussle between Surrey and New Westminster over how big a bridge is needed. Surrey’s mayor has demanded a six-lane bridge – which TransLink also leans toward – but many in New Westminster fear it would pour too much traffic into their already congested city. Some suggest the bridge be angled further northeast so it bypasses New Westminster altogether and connects better to Coquitlam and Highway 1. That option has been ruled out, TransLink roads director Sany Zein said, because Burnaby- or New West-bound traffic would have to detour too far, more roadwork would be needed and the river there is wider, doubling the bridge’s price. He said TransLink’s base case calls for a six-lane bridge – four lanes for general purpose traffic and two reserved for trucks. “We are building a structure that will serve the region for the next 100 years and we are looking at two growing cities on either

Public meetings are scheduled to discuss a new Pattullo Bridge. shore,” Zein said. Trucks would stay in the outside goods movement priority lanes, which TransLink would connect to Major Road Network routes. Trucks would be discouraged from taking local streets. The new Pattullo would connect to King George Boulevard, Scott Road and the South Fraser Perimeter Road on the Surrey side and Royal Avenue, McBride Boulevard and Columbia Street East on the New West side. Once public input is in, TransLink would decide on a configuration and move to detailed design work and an environmental assessment, followed by a construction start in 2016. If all goes well, Zein said, the bridge might open in late 2017, but added 2018 is the target. The cost is estimated at $800 million to $1 billion.

As for whether the new bridge will be tolled, Zein said tolls are a “backstop” and plenty of time remains to explore alternatives. “The region is getting used to the concept of tolls,” he added. Only a handful of cyclists and pedestrians currently brave the narrow bridge, but the new bridge would offer a wider sidewalk with connections to the B.C. Parkway and Central Valley Greenway. Public workshops are set for New Westminster tonight (Tuesday) at the Centennial Community Centre and Thursday Feb. 23 at the Inn at the Quay. In Surrey, they run Wednesday Feb. 22 and 27, both at Surrey City Centre Library. All meetings start at 6:30 p.m. with an open house followed by a 7 p.m. presentation then small group discussions.

Unnecessarily sounding alarms

T

he good news is that crime is down in our City By The Sea – by about 16 per cent, overall, and 44 per cent in terms of violent crime comparing 2011 statistics with 2010. The bad news is that White Rock residents are much more prone to crying wolf than crying foul. When it comes to tying up the emergency lines, it appears that White Rockers are profligate offenders, with speed dialing, particularly of cell phones, the likely culprit. How else to explain a spike in the number of misdialed 911 calls received – up an alarming 36 per cent to 1,420 – last year? That’s an average of close to four erroneous calls each day. And that’s just in sleepy old White Rock – not the bustling, urban “million-stories-inthe-Naked-City” environment of South Surrey. To misdial the simple three-number combination that many times requires an awful lot of people mislaying their spectacles (assuming, of course, all 1,420 didn’t come from a single confused individual). A more credible explanation is that the emergency number has been pre-programmed by many to dial automatically in a moment of peril – or, more likely, the mis-hit of a single button. A few wireless handsets, we suspect, are working their way down between the cushions of easy chairs, and more than a few cellphones are trapped in the tight confines of jean pockets, where a slight redistribution of weight may be all it takes to connect one’s nether regions with an eager passel of emergency responders. Never mind the buttheads who persist in yakking on cellphones while they’re driving, disregarding the consistent evidence of danger and the heavy penalties advertised for offenders. It seems it now only requires a single aberrant buttock to occupy the authorities. There’s a serious subtext, of course. Each and every one of those calls took up the valuable time of emergency personnel, potentially diverting them from responding to a real emergency. Responding to misdials is not what we pay these highly-trained individuals for. To err is, quite naturally, human; some false alarms will always be inevitable. But the White Rock figures suggest residents should be relying less on automation and more on common sense. There may be some restricted enough in movement or memory to be incapable of dialing 911, but we’re betting that most can manage it, in a pinch. Or we can simply sit on the problem – and watch the 911 call statistics climb through the roof next year.

So far this week you’ve said… yes 57% no 43% 102 responding identified by the auditor: the poor state of B.C.’s forest inventory. As much as three quarters of it is out of date, some by decades. Much of it is based on aerial photographs rather than on-the-ground assessment by foresters. Species have shifted. And at a time when climate factors have caused the most rapid changes in the 100-year history of the B.C. Forest Service, budget cuts and reorganization into a natural resources ministry have taken their toll. Even with the most recent appraisals completed last summer for four forest districts, including the Burns Lake district, the ministry still can’t say if there are enough logs to rebuild Babine. Simpson says the industry knows the answer. Two of the world’s highestcapacity sawmills are at Houston and Vanderhoof, on either side of Burns Lake, and their huge salvage log supply is degrading and running out. A political intervention to “save” the Burns Lake mill would only take shifts away from others. An alternative would be to make Burns Lake a proving ground for bioenergy, to deal with the huge mass of trees that will never make lumber. Finally, a bright note for Burns Lake. The people and the economy are adapting. A job fair in the village offered entry-level as well as skilled positions at the Houston and Vanderhoof mills. There are more positions on offer at the Mount Milligan and Huckleberry mines and Enbridge, which has gas, solar and wind projects on the go.

Free speech over decorum Editor: Re: Judge dresses down gallery, Feb. 14. Regarding Judge Ellen Gordon’s criticism of courtroom spectators wearing T-shirts with slogans, it sounds as if the judge is forgetting a basic charter right called freedom of speech. As long as those persons wearing the T-shirts do not interrupt the proceedings by such disruptive behaviour as yelling things out or waving placards about, I would suggest they should have the right to express their opinions on their clothing. While the judge apparently is ready to defend the accused’s rights – as she should – considering her bail comments, I would suggest the public’s right to free speech must also be upheld. I am also concerned about two other aspects. The judge said: “If you want to watch… come dressed like normal people.” Who is Judge Gordon to say what is “normal?” I am troubled by anyone – especially someone with such influence – telling people how to dress. And, concluding that the bail terms are creating a custody-like situation sounds a lot like that issue has been pre-judged. I can already guess what will happen at that bail hearing. Bernhard Dandyk, Surrey

to make it sustainable? Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, experts from the OECD, leading universities and the government itself have all said our Old Age Security (OAS) program does not face major challenges, and there’s no pressing need for change. Canada’s parliamentary budget officer says that OAS is sustainable beyond the year 2082. Payments today cost 2.4 per cent of our national gross domestic product. When the baby boomers max out in 2031, that percentage will climb to 3.1 per cent but then drop off again. Conservatives like Hiebert (South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale) are really trying to raid your retirement savings to pay for their extreme ideological agenda. They say current seniors won’t see their benefits cuts, but they aren’t saying anything about tomorrow’s seniors – hardworking Canadians who have based their retirement plans around having old-age pensions available to them. The fact is, more than half of oldage pensions go to seniors earning less than $25,000 year. Canadians workers have paid taxes their entire careers expecting that these benefits will be available to them when they turn 65.

Raising the age for OAS will mean that some will have to stay longer in the workforce, whether they’re physically up to it or not. Seniors’ poverty rates could rise by onethird. That’s just not right – not in a successful country like Canada. MP Scott Brison, Liberal Party Finance Critic

School crisis made in Surrey Editor: It was very nice of Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts’ friends to help her out at election time and promise a couple of new schools. Now, almost four months later, no money has come – not even the seed money to start the planning. Surrey Board of Education chair Laurae McNally continues to emphasize the blame is not with the Ministry of Education but with the provincial treasury board. I’m sure she’s aware MLA Kevin Falcon – from Surrey – is the finance minister. Where is he? While it’s easy for McNally to point fingers at the provincial government, let’s also admit it was Watts and Surrey First who created

We rescue – never steal Editor: Re: Judge dresses down gallery, Feb. 14. In regards to the article about the stolen-dogs case at Surrey Provincial Court, I am very disappointed that this article was one-sided. The victim was also interviewed and yet her point was nowhere to be found in the newspaper. Also, this A Better Life Dog Rescue has done wonderful things – nobody is attacking them – but to say that other rescues, pointing at us, the opponents, steal dogs, too, is a lie. (Editor’s note: One supporter said she believed that both sides are trying to help dogs: “Some people call it stealing and some call it rescue.”) Yes, we rescue – never steal. Please, when you write an article, make sure that you talk to both sides. Thanks. Marion Hewko, Chilliwack

OAS perfectly sustainable Editor: MP Russ Hiebert boasts on his website that “Canadians gave us a strong mandate to help seniors improve their quality of life.” So why does he claim that he needs to cut your old-age pension

Cellphone use while driving is out of control, says letter-writer Tom Peet.

This is no LOL matter Editor: I occasionally drive a larger-thanusual vehicle, and from my high “perch” I am afforded an often interesting look into other folks’ cars. Today, as I slowed for a traffic signal, three cars rolled past me and I observed that all three drivers were texting – one of them with both hands. On my daily three- to fivekilometre walks, I amuse myself

by counting the number of drivers who are talking on cellphones and/ or texting – commonly three or four per block. Every block. Enforcement observed? Once, a few months ago, and I’m out walking on main thoroughfares almost every day. It’s out of control out there, folks, and one of the talkers/texters might have your number. Be alert! Tom Peet, Surrey

the schools crisis in the first place. The recent census figures show Surrey grew by almost 75,000 people from 2006 to 2011. Watts and co. knew full well there was no capital funding forthcoming, so why did they continue their reckless develop-at-all-costs agenda. Alas, in her time of need just weeks before the civic election, there were Dianne’s friends in the provincial government lining up to help bail her out. Now that the election is over, will the BC Liberals keep their promise? Their past record doesn’t instill confidence. There’s a provincial election coming in about 15 months, so we are likely to hear this feel-good announcement several more times. On the other hand, if no cheque is signed, will Watts have the backbone to even murmur? Or did the school crisis she created magically disappear for another three years? Rich Weldon, Surrey

Bad owners ruin it for rest Editor: Re: No support for dogs on the promenade, Feb. 9; Not the place for pooches, Feb. 14 letters. While I sympathize with responsible dog owners having restricted access to the beach and promenade, they are victims of selfish dog owners that wreck it for everyone.

Take a bow, players club Editor: Just returned from the Coast Capital Playhouse and thoroughly enjoyed Drinking Alone. The White Rock Players Club cast was excellent, the set outstanding. Finally a play that was entertaining and extremely enjoyable. This was an excellent evening at the theatre. The only one downside was the cast did not come out to the lobby so that they could be congratulated personally. They do this at the theatre in Lynden, Wash., and it is a very nice, human touch.

A fire last week at BP’s Cherry Point refinery – just south of Blaine, Wash. – may cause gas prices to increase in Metro Vancouver.

Blaze at Blaine’s Cherry Point refinery could slow production

Fire may boost gas prices Jeff Nagel Black Press

Experts say an oil refinery fire just across the border in Washington State could put upward pressure on gasoline prices in the Lower Mainland, depending on how long production is curtailed. The fire Friday at BP’s Cherry Point refinery south of Blaine could halve overall production there for days if not months, according to U.S. reports. Calgary-based industry analyst Michael Ervin said it appears much gasoline refining there can continue as the fire mainly affected the ability to upgrade heavier crude oil. “There could be a price impact,” he said, but rated that an unlikely scenario that would be triggered only by a longer or more extensive shutdown. Cherry Point normally processes 225,000 barrels of crude oil per day. It doesn’t usually supply Metro Vancouver, which gets most of its gasoline from refineries in Alberta via Kinder Morgan’s TransMountain pipeline and from Burnaby’s Chevron refinery, which gets its

feedstock via Kinder Morgan. But Ervin said an extended disruption that drives prices up in the northwestern U.S. would have a ripple effect on pump prices here. Kinder Morgan’s pipeline also has a branch that goes into Washington State at Sumas, so gasoline that typically flows to the Lower Mainland could divert south if a serious shortage emerged in the northwestern U.S. Kinder Morgan spokesperson Lexa Hobenshield said such decisions are up to the pipeline’s customers and that so far, the Cherry Point fire has had “no implications” on its shipments. As of Monday, gasoline prices in Metro Vancouver were already up nearly five cents a litre from a week earlier to an average of $1.34, according to the website VancouverGasPrices.com. Website co-founder Jason Toews said the need to import more gas to the Washington area will have a spillover effect on Metro Vancouver unless full production resumes swiftly at Cherry Point. “Due to its close proximity to Vancouver, it will have an impact on gas prices if there is any kind

of outage whatsoever,” Toews said. “I would expect gas prices to rise upwards of 10 or 15 cents per litre.” Higher gas prices in Washington would also affect B.C. drivers who nip across the line to fill up. Retailers must jack prices when supplies of refined gas tighten to ensure they don’t run out, Toews said, adding otherwise the fear of a shortage can spark panic buying and even worse, price distortions. Ervin said the latest lift in Vancouver gas prices appears unrelated to Cherry Point. He said the same jump is being felt across the country because of generally higher crude oil prices and tensions with Iran over its nuclear program. Although gas prices normally shoot up in the spring as more drivers and vacationers take to the roads, Ervin doesn’t expect the typical seasonal increase to be as severe as in past years. He cautioned his outlook depends on crude oil prices not soaring as a result of some military confrontation in the Middle East. “It’s a real dartboard situation with the tensions in Iran.”

He will be in various cities in China this spring. There he will highlight the South Surrey White Rock area as a great place to live and invest. Ben Benson has been a realtor for 28 years.

news Kwantlen lawsuit resolved out of court

Students settle KSA case Sheila Reynolds Black Press

A civil lawsuit against the Kwantlen Student Association (KSA) launched by two ousted directors has been settled out of court. Gary Singh Dhaliwal and Balninna (Nina) Sandhu filed a civil suit in B.C. Supreme Court last month saying a special general meeting Nov. 30 at Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU), during which they were impeached, was improperly called, unfairly conducted and should be declared null and void. Last Thursday, the KSA released a resolution document showing that the student association and Dhaliwal/Sandhu have agreed

that the meeting was “validly called, convened, and held” and that resolutions expelling former directors and electing new directors and bylaws were also valid. However, the parties also agreed that a special resolution which placed more than two dozen individuals in bad standing – meaning they could never run for the KSA again – was not legitimate because it did not meet notice requirements laid out in KSA bylaws. Still, the resolution says, the 26 former directors and others “have voluntarily agreed not to participate in the affairs of the KSA in any manner for the next three years, including seeking office as directors of the society.” Student politics heated up at

KPU shortly after an election last spring that saw a large turnover of directors. Allegations of overspending and corruption against the new student leaders soon followed. This week’s resolution states the agreement was motivated by a “desire to resolve all outstanding issues from the past in order to allow the KSA to move forward and focus on serving the students.” All parties have agreed not to engage in further litigation regarding past KSA events or speak publicly about the settlement. The KSA will also compensate Sandhu and Dhaliwal for legal costs.

Robbery suspect turns himself in Kevin Diakiw Black Press

A Surrey man wanted by the Kelowna RCMP for armed robbery turned himself into Mounties in that city Thursday morning. Devan Markcus Wong was wanted for multiple offences related to an armed robbery late last year. Surveillance cameras caught images of what police believe is 19-yearold Wong robbing Premier Jewelry and Loan Dec. 6. Cameras mounted to the dash of a police car showed

that RCMP were shot at when they arrived. A second later, the camera shows a police dog and handler pursuing a suspect. He scaled a 10-foot fence before the dog caught up with

him. He escaped down an alley. The suspect is believed to have carjacked a vehicle, forcing the occupant to drive him to a West Kelowna trailer park, where he switched vehicles.

perspectives …on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Healthy Community Challenge begins in March

Mayors get set to tackle fitness test Monique Tamminga & Nick Greenizan Black Press

F

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

Mayors Richard Stewart, Dianne Watts, Peter Fassbender and Bruce Banman prepare for the fitness challenge. The Langley City mayor – a cancer survivor – is setting a goal to reduce the amount of diabetic medication he has to take. “If we want to reduce healthcare costs, it’s got to be about prevention,” he said.

Fassbender already takes the stairs at work and can be seen walking around downtown Langley as a way to stay fit. Watts said she brings her own food to functions so she isn’t tempted to eat sweets.

Coquitlam’s Stewart – like Watts – is recovering from a serious accident. Stewart was hit by a car while out campaigning on foot three months ago. Prior to that, he was in a crippling car crash eight

years ago that left him with back injuries. “I’m looking to build up my strength. I still feel the weight of Christmas time,” he said. Coquitlam trainer Kris Schjelderup said he will work on Stewart’s range of motion, posture and body alignment. Banman’s trainer plans to get the new Abby mayor in crampons – traction-improving footwear – to climb neighbouring Elk Mountain, which currently has nine feet of snow. “Nothing worth having comes easy,” responded Banman, a chiropractor. The community challenge is not simply about weight loss, either, said challenge founder Matt Young, Innovative Founder’s president. While that may be the case for many who sign up, others may be training for athletic endeavours or – as in some of the mayors’ cases – rehabbing from injuries. Young said organizers put the challenge to the mayors with the hope that their communities’ residents, and others from across B.C., will be inspired to take part. Once registered, participants will have access through the website to all types of healthy living and fitness resources, and will also be able to track their fitness progress over the course of the program. For each positive activity – which could range from simply remembering to eat breakfast to going for a walk after work – participants earn points. Those points are then added to a larger pool and sorted by the participants’ communities, in an effort to find which city has gained the most points. Prizes will be awarded for the top individual point-getters, while other rewards will be handed out at random. The Healthy Community Challenge begins March 12. To register, visit www. healthycommunitychallenge. com or watch for announcements on how to get your BMI and measurements recorded two days prior.

lifestyles Nicomekl Rowing Club work on the new building

Boathouse to be ‘beautiful’ Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A labour of love is helping a new boathouse take shape along the Nicomekl River in South Surrey. Volunteers with the Nicomekl Rowing Club have been working on the crafted-timber-frame building since tearing down the open-sided structure they’ve used for the past 14 years in December. “What we had was more like a picnic shelter – I call it an elongated palapa – where our boats were under shelter,” club pastpresident Jon Moss said. The new, enclosed building, going up on the same site in Elgin Heritage Park, will have room for more boats and is “absolutely beautiful,” Moss said. “This is a great building; it’s not just a shed,” he said. Moss said while construction only recently got underway, the new boathouse has been a work in progress for about three years. Club members had saved and fundraised about $70,000 of the $100,000 cost when the decision was made to start the work. “We just took a deep breath,” said Moss, one of the club’s founders. “It’s just one of those things, if we start, we’ll find it. It’s a leap of faith, as a lot of ventures are.” Once finished, the boathouse

It is the club’s biggest expense since purchasing a trailer about eight years ago to haul members’ boats to rowing events. That cost about $8,000. The boathouse is expected to be complete around the end of April. It should be ready for boat storage in about six weeks. Unfortunately, eager anticipation of that moment was tainted last month, when thieves made off with the motor from the club’s safety boat. The six-month-old, 20-horsepower Yamaha engine had been secured with a thick, stainless steel chain, leading Moss to believe whoever took it came prepared. “We had it so securely chained.

It was unbelievable it would’ve been cut,” he said. The theft, discovered Jan. 21, was the second time the vessel’s motor has been stolen. The cost to replace it is about $3,000, and the search is on for a used engine, Moss said. In the meantime, the theft hasn’t grounded club members. A second, smaller safety boat remains at the ready. It doesn’t have the capacity of the main vessel, “but it’s better than nothing,” Moss said. Once a replacement engine is found, steps will be taken to ensure it is less attractive to thieves, he added. For more information, contact one of the executive members through www.nico-row.com

Contest winners Rekha Kumar and Peter Spears hold up photos of themselves before their make-overs.

‘Style Revolution’ for pair Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

A Surrey dad who was planning to donate his long hair to charity and a South Surrey mom who was too busy looking after others to pay much attention to fashion were among six winners of a makeover contest run by a White Rock hair salon. There were 25 entrants in the “Style Revolution” contest run by Nicole Steinmann who owns the Ivory Hair Lounge in White Rock. Five women and one man were awarded free do-overs that included a discount deal on new clothes to match the new looks. “A lot of people either don’t know what to do with their style or spend so much time focusing on everyone else that they forget about themselves,” Steinmann said. She said the contest win-

ners were chosen because they appeared most deserving. “A few of them had some very interesting stories and really deserved to be looked after,” Steinmann said. Surrey resident Peter Spears, for instance, was planning to change his look for a good cause, donating his long ponytail to the “locks of love” non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the U.S. and Canada who have lost their hair for medical reasons. Spears’ new look featured a styled haircut by Wendy Coles and a crisply tailored – yet still casual – outfit with dress shirt and tie. It was a big change for Spears, whose “before” picture shows him wearing a Judas Priest T-shirt. South Surrey resident Rekha Kumar, a hard-working nurse and mom wasn’t really thinking

about a change of style until her daughter nominated her, saying her mom, who does so much for others, ought to have something done for her Stylists Zoe Rahimi and Michelle Palsenbarg ditched Kumar’s dyedblond ‘do for a shorter, sleeker cut that was considerably closer to her natural color. “It took 10 years off,” Steinmann said. On Feb. 9, the salon staged a big reveal with the winners and their new looks walking a red carpet in new clothes and new cosmetics for the women, donated by makeup artist Kelsey Dickson. Steinmann said it was an emotional moment with two winners getting teary. “It was a great success,” she said of her first-ever makeover contest, adding the salon plans to hold more makeover contests in the future.

You have shoes for every look...

Volcanoes, raisins, dirt and light bulbs – the range of topics given a closer look by students in Grades 3-7 at Semiahmoo Trail Elementary ran the gamut this year. Projects entered in the South Surrey school’s sixth annual science fair filled the gym to the hilt Friday (Feb. 17). As their peers, parents, teachers and judges perused, the students explained and demonstrated what they’d learned, each of them hoping to win one of four coveted spots to the upcoming district

science fair, set for next month at Central City shopping centre. Grade 7 teacher Johanna Rose said 177 students entered a total of 114 projects in the event. The first year the fair was held, just 52 students participated. Rose was thrilled with the jump in interest seen over the years. “Each year, more and more classes are participating as a whole class,” Rose said, describing the fair as “a really exciting event.” - Tracy Holmes

Fraser Health failed to meet provincial targets to rein in surgery wait times in 2010-’11 and, as a result, lost out on $2.6 million in incentive funding. “Although we increased surgery volumes about three per cent, we were unable to shorten the wait times as much as we needed to meet the target,” authority spokesman David Plug said. The payments through the health ministry’s patient-focused funding branch rewards health authorities that meet targets to keep waits down and punishes them if they don’t – the money instead goes to reduce the province’s deficit. The rules require no more than 10 per cent of patients wait longer than 26 weeks for knee and hip surgery and 16 weeks for cataract surgery, in order for each authority to qualify for activitybased funding in those categories. But 19 per cent of patients waited longer than 26 weeks for a knee replacement in the Fraser Health region in the 2010 fiscal year, so the authority lost out

Fraser Health failed to meet surgery wait-time targets last year. on nearly $1.8 million, Plug said. The authority was docked another $834,000 because 39 per cent of cataract patients waited longer than 16 weeks. Statistics show 55 cataract patients in Fraser actually waited longer than a year for surgery, so the authority also failed in clearing a separate bar that no patients wait more than 12 months. On hip replacements, 11 per cent of patients waited more than 26 weeks – just missing the target – but the min-

istry agreed that was close and credited the authority $1.6 million. Plug said the incentive system encourages the region to make its booking and surgery system more efficient and reduce waits. Fraser tries not to double-book the same patient or keep patients on wait lists whose conditions have changed and are no longer ready for surgery. The region also strives to ensure operating rooms have enough capacity to handle scheduled cases and to make sure hip and knee replacements have time reserved. It’s not yet clear if the region will hit all three surgery targets this fiscal year, which ends at the end of March. Fraser performed 2,400 hip replacements and 15,000 cataract surgeries last year. Fraser’s surgery wait statistics are considerably worse than in the Vancouver Coastal region, which serves Vancouver, Richmond and the North Shore. The Northern Health Authority was the only region that performed worse than Fraser.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Elgin, Sullivan Heights, Tweedsmuir advance

Warriors knock off ‘Cats in final Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Boaz Joseph photo

Sullivan Heights’ Cole Carey (left) drives the ball past Max Waterman of the Earl Marriott Mariners during a first-round playoff basketball game at Sullivan Heights Secondary last Tuesday. Sullivan won the game, to advance to the Fraser Valley Championships, which begin Wednesday. Sullivan will face Walnut Grove.

After a rocky few weeks in which they dropped games to conference rivals, the White Rock Christian Academy Warriors returned to form Friday, defeating to Tamanawis Wildcats by a single basket in the finals of the Fraser Valley Southwest tournament. WRCA, seeded third, upset the No. 1 Wildcats – who are ranked third in the province – 60-58 at Tamanawis Secondary Friday night, by way of a second-half comeback. “We finally put it all together. In the second half, we executed, made some shots, and were able to get the win,” said WRCA coach John Dykstra. “Beating Tamanawis in their gym, in front of their fans, is pretty big – we earned it. “Hopefully it’s a shot in the arm for us, and can get us going in the right direction.” The Warriors trailed the ‘Cats by 13 points at halftime, but mounted a comeback in the third quarter, keyed by three straight three-pointers from Jon Pelling. “That was the catalyst for us,” Dykstra explained. “After that, we just kept taking the ball inside to Kristophe Baerg, Jake Newman and Corey Barker.” Dykstra also singled out point guard Tyus Allen for his efforts. “He really controlled the pace of the game for us,” the coach said. And though he was as excited as his players to win the Southwest conference, Dykstra tempered the mood by insisting that he’d need to see a similarly strong follow-up performance before declaring his team to be playing its best. “We need to see a repeat performance, for sure, but this is a good start,” he said. In semifinals Thursday, WRCA edged the Elgin Park Orcas 70-62 to advance to the finals. And thought they lost to White Rock Thursday, it was the under-

dog Orcas who pulled off an upset to rival White Rock’s win over the Wildcats. On Wednesday night, the Orcas – who had not qualified for the Fraser Valley tournament in three years – ensured themselves of a strong seeding at the Valley showdown after upsetting the No. 2-ranked Delta Pacers 85-80. “Last year, we didn’t even get out of Surrey (championships),” Elgin Park coach Dan Walker said. “Making it to the Fraser Valleys was our goal at the start of the year, in November, and now we’ve done it. “This a real shocking, upset win.” Delta led 28-14 after the first quarter, and was up 44-35 at halftime before the Orcas mounted a late-game comeback. Sam Conti had 20 points – including 13 in the first quarter – while Brett Walker finished with 17 points and 12 rebounds and Alex Hadikin added 16 points and 12 boards. The game was a marked improvement from the last time the two teams faced off a month ago. “We got our lunch handed to us in that one. We took a spanking, quite frankly,” Walker said. “This time, I don’t think the boys thought they’d be able to win, but they knew they weren’t going to go out there and get killed again. We just get grinding out there.” Two other South Surrey/Cloverdale teams advanced to Fraser Valleys – Sullivan Heights and Lord Tweedsmuir. WRCA will head into the Valleys as the No. 4 seed, and will play No. 29 Kwantlen Park Wednesday at 8 p.m. at WRCA, while No. 14 Elgin will face Abbotsford Collegiate, ranked 19th. Sullivan Heights will be the 31st seed, which means a Wednesday date with the No. 2 Walnut Grove Gators, while Tweedsmuir, ranked 20th, will face No. 13 Maple Ridge, at 6:15 p.m. at WRCA. The finals are set for the Langley Events Centre Saturday at 7:45 p.m.

DIVERSEcity Community Resources Society is pleased to announce the

Wins give Surrey points in 23 of last 24 BCHL games

Eagles take two from Dogs

FEATURING Keynote Speaker

Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The Penticton Vees may be hogging most of the headlines in the BC Hockey League these days – and rightfully so, considering they’ve won a league-record 34 straight games – but the Surrey Eagles have been on an impressive roll themselves. After tacking another two wins to their record last weekend – 5-4 and 4-1 victories over the Alberni Valley Bulldogs – the South Surrey-based squad have now picked up at least one point in 23 of the last 24 games – and the last 16 games straight. The last time the Eagles failed to net a win, tie or overtime loss was Jan. 6 against Powell River; before that, the last time was Dec. 9. “We haven’t said too much to the guys about (the streak), and it hasn’t been getting a lot of attention, but that’s OK,” said Eagles coach Matt Erhart. “A lot of people just know we’re playing well, even if they don’t know the numbers.” The two-month-long run has boosted the Birds into first place in the Coastal Conference, with 73 points, which is still one-up on the second-place Kings. Surrey has nine games left, while the Kings have seven. The Eagles’ points streak seemed to be in jeopardy early in Friday’s game in Alberni Valley, as the

Surrey Eagles forward Robert Lindores had three points Friday. home team led 2-0 after 20 minutes on goals from Mitchell Crisanti and Yan Kalashnikov, who scored on the power play. In the second period, however, the visitors stormed back to briefly tie the game by the 12:02 mark on goals from Alex Hagen – who now has 14 goals in 28 games since being traded to Surrey from Vernon – and Robert Lindores. Alberni’s Turner Popoff restored the lead, again on the power play, with 2:03 left before period’s end. The Eagles’ special teams won them the game in the third period. Brandon Tanev scored a shorthanded marker, and Tyler Morley, with a power-play goal,

put Surrey up 4-3 with less than three minutes to go. Defenceman Steve Koshey added an empty-netter with 1:08 left, and Bulldogs’ Ryan Lough replied 18 seconds later to again make it a one-goal game. Michael Stenerson and Brandon Morley led the offence Saturday, with a goal and two assists each, while Koshey and Linden Saip rounded out the scoring. Surrey returns home to South Surrey Arena this week. Wednesday, they host the Langley Rivermen and on the weekend, the Nanaimo Clippers and Alberni Bulldogs come to town, on Friday and Saturday respectively.

Delta native to have award created in his name

Lazarowich honoured by BCHL The British Columbia Hockey League is going to recognize the contributions of its referees and linesmen with two awards named after former BCHL officials. BCHL alumni and current NHL officials Kelly Sutherland of Richmond and North Delta’s Brad Lazarowich have had awards created in their name for the top referee and linesman respectively. It’s an initiative spearheaded by Derek Adams, the league’s director of officiating. “The awards were created to bring some recognition to our on-ice officials in the BCHL who strive to be the best they can be both on and off the ice,” said Adams. “Kelly and Brad got their

on and off the ice, but also in giving back to the development of officiating in British Columbia.” The Kelly Sutherland Award winner and the Brad Lazarowich Award winner will each receive $500, of which $250 will be donated to a charity of choice in the name of the official. The winners will be chosen at the end of the season and the selection process will involve input from Adams, BC Hockey Supervisors and the BCHL board of governors. “The awards are an example of the support the BCHL governors provide to our officials and to our officiating program,” said Adams.

Coaches inspire at the BC Winter Games When it comes to sports, coaches can be the unsung heroes of athletic success. The images often seen are of medalwinning athletes standing on podiums, and though the coaches are often nowhere to be seen, athletes will credit their coach for their success ahead of almost anyone else. Coaches lead athletes from community programs to the Olympic and Paralympic podiums. At the BC Games, coach education and training is a priority, with all coaches at

the Games requiring certification from the national coaching certification program. Coaches BC is the provincial organization responsible for coaching education programs and the ongoing support and development of coaches. “A coach’s preparation for the BC Games, or any other competitive environment, is just as important as an athlete’s preparation,” says Coaches BC executive director Gord May. “Every successful athlete has been trained by someone who has taken the time to learn about the technical

aspects of their sport and how to prepare their athletes both mentally and physically.” Provincial sport organizations involved in the BC Winter and Summer Games have demonstrated they are committed to coach development throughout the province. Many sports utilize the Games as an opportunity for coach mentorship and training. Karate BC developed a junior coach mentorship program as part of the BC Winter Games where youth coaches have the opportunity to work with

a certified adult coach. Six coaches, ranging in age from 15 to 18 years old, will be part of the 2012 BC Winter Games. “The BC Games is an ideal way of furthering (development of) our young athletes into future coaches,” says Fernando Correia, provincial advisor for Karate BC. In total, 122 head coaches and 110 assistant coaches will lead 1,148 athletes at the 2012 BC Winter Games, which run Feb. 23-26 in Vernon. Visit www.bcgames.org for more.

June 10, 1919 – February 8, 2012 It is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved brother, father and grandfather, Victor Stanley George Lewis, on February 8, 2012 following a brief illness. Victor was predeceased by his parents Mark and Nellie, brother Norman, sister Olive and first wife Joan. He is survived by his sister Gill, his children Peter (Linda), Simon (Jamie), Julia (Paul), Mark (Lisa) and Andrea (Chris) and his grandchildren Colin, Patrick, Carter, Sophie, Lucas and Lily, and his second wife Lucille. An accomplished football player and avid cyclist in his youth,Victor trained as a mechanical and electrical engineer at Birmingham Central Technical College, serving his apprenticeship with Wolseley Motor Ltd. He was a Chartered Engineer (UK) and Chartered Automobile Engineer (UK). Following in his father’s footsteps, he enlisted with the British Army on Mobilization in 1939,serving with the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers in North Africa from 1941-1947, and earning the rank of Major by the age of 26. After the war, he served with the British War Office, including two years as a NATO exchange officer at RMC in Kingston. In 1957, he resigned his army commission and emigrated to Canada to start a career in land development. From 1966 until his retirement in 1984 he led BACM Alberta and then Genstar Development Co., spearheading some of the largest real estate development projects across Canada. Victor was one of the founding fathers of the Urban Development Institute (UDI), having helped establish the very first branch in Alberta (1958), followed by UDI Canada (1960) and UDI Pacific (1972). At various times he served as President of the Alberta, Canada, Manitoba and Pacific UDI branches. He was the first President of the Canadian Home Manufacturing Association (1963-65), and led a Canadian Trade Mission to Europe in 1965 to promote Canadian methods of industrialized building. In 1978, he received the Queen’s Silver Jubilee Medal for his significant contributions to communities across Canada. He served as President of the Surrey Board of Trade and President of the Surrey Arts Council. He later served as Vice-Chair of the Privatization Advisory Committee of BC Enterprise Corporation. While he was dedicated to his profession, his true passions were his family, music, gardening and a never-ending desire to improve anything on which he could put his hands. He will be remembered for his outgoing personality, inquisitive mind, determination and industrious work ethic.We would like to give a special thanks to the staff of Westminster House in South Surrey for their outstanding care and sensitivity. A memorial service will be held on Friday, March 2 at 1:00 pm at Victory Memorial Park at 14831 28th Avenue, Surrey (www.victorymemorialpark. com). In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the BC Heart and Lung Association. Condolences may be offered at www.victoryfuneralcentre.ca Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre 604-536-6522
