‘Frontal attack’ on labour movement, says Opposition House leader
MPs give Hiebert’s bill rough reception Alex Browne Staff Reporter
MP Russ Hiebert’s private member’s bill aimed at increasing public disclosure of unions’ financial affairs received a bumpy ride from Opposition politicians in the House Of Commons Monday. Speaking on second reading of his bill to amend the Income Tax Act (C.377 – Requirements For Labour Organi-
zations), Hiebert (South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale) argued that requiring unions to file statements with Canada Revenue Agency that would also be available to the public is a move toward greater transparency and accountability. He predicted it would, in fact, confirm to union members that public monies (through tax exemptions to unions) are being well-spent on their behalf.
But Opposition House leader Joe Comartin, NDP MP for WindsorTecumseh – who attacked the proposed legislation when it was introduced in October – labelled some of Hiebert’s comments “disingenuous… a frontal attack on the labour movement.” He added it would actually threaten the rights to association, privacy and freedom of speech.
“It’s not about transparency,” he said. Comartin compared it to legislation introduced by the Republicans during the George W. Bush administration in the U.S. – legislation, he said, that doesn’t go as far as Hiebert’s bill in the level of disclosure and reporting required.

About a dozen Surrey basketball players were the recipient of the Kelowna RCMP’s version of a full court press Thursday afternoon, after a pair of toy guns got them temporarily arrested. Members of the senior boys Tamanawis Wildcats – who last month won the Surrey RCMP Classic – were in town for a tournament and were heading to a mall restaurant in downtown Kelowna at about 2:15 p.m. Thursday, when a police officer noticed one of them tucking a gun into the back of his sweatpants.

‘Compromise’ for parade Dan Ferguson

Pooch Parade organizer Winston Conyers speaks at a Jan. 23 council meeting. at South Surrey Athletic Park. Rather than setting a potentially troublesome precedent by abandoning the no-dog bylaw for a day, Coun. Larry Robinson suggested a compromise, saying the event could be held west of Oxford Street on an area south of the tracks where dogs are already allowed. “There’s a strip of grass there, only used by seagulls and geese,” Robinson said Jan. 23. It is not on the promenade at all, he noted. “Is that going to work for you?” Mayor Wayne Baldwin asked of Conyers. “Sure,” a disappointed Conyers said. “OK.” “It’s not what you were asking for, but it’s a reasonable compromise,” the mayor added. The rest of council agreed. “That’s a pretty big move from ‘no,’” Coun. Alan Campbell said. “I would take it and run like mad,” said Coun. Mary-Wade Anderson.

White Rock council refused last month to lift a ban against dogs on the promenade for the Pooch Parade on the Peninsula fundraiser by the Rotary Club of White Rock Peninsula. But the dogs will get access to the beach under a compromise proposal that will see the April 22 event staged near, but not on, the promenade. The deal was struck after event organizer Winston Conyers lobbied council to temporarily lift the bylaw that forbids dogs from walking on the promenade. “What we’re looking for is an exception to the rule,” said Conyers, secretary of the local Rotary club. Conyers said allowing dog owners to walk their pets along the beachfront walkway from the far end of West Beach to the end of East Beach would allow increased attendance from the 65 dogs last year to an estimated 300 this year. Not, he was careful to add, all at one time and in one place; dogs and their owners would trickle through the area over several hours. “It’s a warm, community event,” Conyers said. “A fun, family event.” The fundraiser was created to support proposed improvements to the South Surrey Athletic Park and other local Rotary projects, as well as assisting the Semiahmoo Animal League Inc. The Rotary club had applied for permission to use the promenade last year and was turned down, forcing them to hold the event

news White Rock complaint over two women in animal-control uniforms
More charges in alleged dognappings Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter
Charges are piling up in the investigation of a dog-rescue group accused of stealing pets from yards across the Lower Mainland. According to court records, several charges – including theft, break-and-enter and commit indictable offence, fraud and breach of undertaking or recognizance – were sworn against A Better Life Dog Rescue founder Janet Margaret Olson in Surrey Provincial Court on Jan. 24 and 27. They relate to alleged incidents in White Rock (Jan. 3, 2011), Surrey (Dec. 5, 15 and 21, 2011), Richmond (July 9, 2010) and
Abbotsford (Nov. 14, 2009). The Surrey charges all relate to alleged breaches of Olson’s bail conditions; one stems from Olson’s attendance at a rally held outside Surrey Provincial Court Dec. 15. The White Rock charges relate to a report from a homeowner in the 14700-block of Gordon Avenue, who told police two women in animal-control uniforms took an American bulldog from his yard. Michaela Schnittker, of Richmond, is listed as a co-accused on the Richmond charges. The new charges follow several announced late last year against Olson and Louise Reid, who are both Surrey residents; Reid is a co-

South Surrey crash

Two children – a brother and sister, aged four and five years old – were pulled from a rolled SUV Monday afternoon, following a dramaticlooking crash in South Surrey. Police were called to the scene, on 144 Street, just south of 28 Avenue, just after 1:30 p.m. Feb. 6, after a white Mazda SUV and black Saab 9000 sedan collided. The impact caused the SUV to roll; it came to rest on its roof in a ditch. All three occupants of the Mazda – police say the driver was the mother of the two children – were taken to hospital for observation. They suffered minor injuries, Cpl. Drew Grainger said, noting, “it looked worse than it was.” An eyewitness told Peace Arch News the occupants of the SUV – taken from the scene on stretchers – did not appear to be seriously hurt. “Just shaken up,” he said. The Saab driver, who was reportedly travelling with two dogs, was not injured. A charge of failing to yield at a stop sign is being considered against one of the drivers, Grainger said. – Dan Ferguson

Supreme Court Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter
Justice Janice Dillon. The plot was also believed to include the killing of two unidentified women as well. On Aug. 5, 2009, the VPD recorded a conversation between Joseph “Joey” Doiron and an unknown woman, in which Doiron asked if the woman knew where Bam-Bam was. The woman said she didn’t know. Three days later, Baker died in what Surrey Provincial Court Judge Kenneth Ball referred to as an “automobile accident.” It is not clear from the Surrey court document whether the accident was considered suspicious or what the fate of the two women was. Doiron, a Port Coquitlam resident, was later arrested and charged with two others over a murder-for-hire scheme involving a Surrey woman who wanted her former commonlaw spouse killed. The woman, Liza Joylene Belcourt, Doiron and David Dean Laidlaw of Langley were each found guilty of one count of conspiracy to commit murder by a B.C. Supreme Court jury on Nov. 24, 2011. They are to be sentenced today in Vancouver.
Details of the 2009 investigation into the Baker and Belcourt cases were revealed during the Surrey Provincial Court trial of a man charged with 28 weapons-related offences. The wiretaps in the Baker and Belcourt cases are being used as evidence against Anthony Vagn Christensen, 23, who was arrested in Surrey on Aug. 15, 2009 on charges that included possession of prohibited weapons, careless use of a firearm and offering to manufacture or transfer an illegal firearm. Last August and September, during a Surrey Provincial Court voir dire – a “trial within a trial” to determine the admissibility of evidence – the defence lawyer demanded more information about the Baker investigation because it uncovered evidence that led to the charges against Christensen. Ball ruled the cases were not related and dismissed the application as “simply a fishing expedition.” The ruling was posted online in January. The Christensen trial resumed Monday for 12 days in Surrey.

Tory plan compared to U.S., Russia from page 1 tion’s adoption, Comartin said, point to a strategy that “every dollar spent on disclosure and reporting” was a dollar not spent on other union activities. The U.S. experience, he said, had shown a large increase in administration costs, noting it will be “worse” here and is part of a pattern seen even further afield. In Russia, he said, it has had the effect “of demolishing a number of (human rights) groups and driving others underground.” Opponents also charged that the information reported would be much less likely to be accessed by the general public than employ-
ers and other union-busters. NDP labour critic Yvon Godin (Acadie–Bathhurst) argued that if government was interested in transparency it would also focus on complete disclosure by oil and gas companies and banks, which also receive public benefit through undisclosed tax exemptions. Hiebert, noting he was “baffled” by opposition, said he believes the disclosure will strengthen confidence in unions. He cited polls that indicate 83 per cent of Canadians want the information published, and 86 per cent of Canadian union members favour it. Hiebert compared his proposed legislation with the reporting and
publishing of financial statements that is required of charities. He said the bill would not increase administration costs. Hiebert received support from MP Shelly Glover (Saint Boniface), who cited positive feedback from academics, economists, commentators and union members that the bill would improve transparency and fairness. “As a proud member of a union – the Winnipeg Police Association – I’m 100 per cent behind this,” she said. “Anyone on that side of the House who is against transparency and fairness should explain what the heck they’re doing in the House of Commons.”
District questions toy availability from page 1 “I just don’t know why we allow these things to be sold in stores,” McNally said. District communications manager Doug Strachan said it is too easy for students to buy plastic toy guns that look like the real thing.
“They, like anyone else, can walk into a dollar store and buy one on impulse,” Strachan said. “It begs the question, why are these replica guns available in the first place?” Strachan said requiring such toys to be made of bright orange or yellow plastic would help.
Asked if the students would face punishment, Strachan said he was unable to comment on the specifics but noted police intervention would likely serve as a “pretty powerful and memorable lesson.” – with files from Dan Ferguson & Kelowna Capital News

Airport upgrades come at cost to travellers ast month’s announcement that the Vancouver International Airport will be spending $1.8 billion on yet more upgrades may very well be a great investment at the end of the day. But the timing of the announcement has put it under the microscope for particularly intense scrutiny for good reason. While other levels of government look for cutbacks while dealing with the worldwide economic slowdown, YVR is splurging. Airport authority president Larry Berg said the upgrades are necessary to keep the airport ahead in an increasingly competitive arena. Other regional airports, in Alberta and Washington State, are also desperately trying to attract new business at the expense of YVR. So Berg said the airport needs to respond to its shortcomings, and the massive 10-year expenditure holds the promise of luring more international carriers to our fair city. And more carriers means more money, perhaps as much as an additional $200 million to the annual economy, along with hundreds or thousands of jobs. But the upgrades come at a cost. Specifically, the now hidden, but always hated, Airport Improvement Fee will be increased 33 per cent, from $15 to $20 for international and domestic travel. The rate for within B.C. remains the same at $5. And therein lies the rub. Yet again, the upgrades will be borne on backs of already beleaguered Canadian taxpayers. Some people already chose to use Seattle as their airport for vacations, and the recently expanded and refurbished Bellingham airport also draws plenty of Lower Mainland travellers who, despite the inconvenience of border lineups, are lured by the prospect of saving a few hundred dollars per family on trips. Could this additional $5 be the straw that breaks the proverbial camel’s back? Who knows, but therein lies the second rub. Canadian taxpayers have absolutely no say in the matter. There’s no public hearing, no way to tell the airport that it’s misguided, no mechanism for accountability. That hasn’t changed. And likely never will as long as the airport cuts its annual $80 million rental cheque to Ottawa.

So far this week you’ve said… yes 32% no 68% 86 responding There are legitimate concerns about water use and chemical discharge from shale fracturing, and the B.C. government has scrambled to upgrade its regulations on that as well as sour gas. Premier Christy Clark has run to the front of the LNG parade, trying to convey the notion that multi-billion-dollar investments made years ago by Chinese, Japanese, U.S. and Korean corporations are somehow the result of her “jobs plan.” NDP energy critic John Horgan insists that the BC Utilities Commission oversee all this, so the BC Liberals don’t subsidize these giant transnational energy companies with cheap electricity and stick BC Hydro ratepayers with the bill. According to Horgan, the BCUC should also have lawyered away over the smart meter program for God knows how long, as analog meters become obsolete and Quebec and others modernize their electricity grids without hand-wringing or exploitation of imaginary health threats. This is not a good time to dither. An LNG terminal is proposed for Portland, Ore. and there will be others. LNG plants need lots of electricity, and the BC Liberal government wants to market B.C.

Basic needs should be met Editor: Re: MLA Jagrup Brar is keeping it real, Jan. 26 column. Surrey MLA Jagrup Brar is to be congratulated on his efforts in bringing to light the hardship of living on welfare, but it should never be easy getting a free handout and should only be a temporary fix. Some healthy welfare recipients have also been collecting for years with no accountability, so at the least they should be required on a month-to-month basis to show their efforts in trying to obtain employment. Otherwise, what incentive do they have to get a job? If it is more money they require for food, clothing, etc., issue vouchers for these items if they qualify. If recipients are addicted to drugs or alcohol, or mentally challenged, they should be screened differently than the average person, as obviously they are not capable of managing their own affairs. Again, they should be given vouchers if required, rather than money, so you know they are getting what they need. Otherwise, it just becomes a revolving door. Every human has the right to live in a clean and healthy environment, but we all know that some rental owners take advantage of the less fortunate and, at times, make them live in deplorable conditions. If the government is paying the tab, why are they allowing these conditions? Why are they not withholding the rent until these owners make the space more livable? As a low-income renter, you are usually required to share your space with others, which no doubt can become challenging at times, but at the very least your basic needs should be met, such as running hot water and working appliances. If not, there is something seriously wrong with the system. Cheryl Berti, White Rock
Give ‘no busers’ a bit of a break Editor: With all the talk of the Evergreen Line finally getting the go ahead, I believe many of you are not aware South Surrey also received an expansion of its bus system last year. Yes, we were thrilled to have our C53 bus expand its route by four blocks down 24 Avenue. The cost of this expansion was probably closer to $140 than the $1.4 billion that is projected for the construction of the Evergreen Line. So I think it only fair we do something for those of you who live in the ‘no bus zone’ – the area south of Highway 10, north of 0 Avenue, east of Highway 99. I’m sure you are looking forward to helping support the cost of the Evergreen Line by paying more for your gas or perhaps having a hefty increase in property taxes, despite the fact you have no buses near you. But do not despair. For those of you who live in this area – I believe
approximately 20,000 people – it would be criminal for you to have to pay for a transit system that you have no access to. So, to make things much fairer, I suggest you all be issued car stickers indicating that you live in the ‘no bus zone.’ Perhaps a sticker with a nice yellow bus with a red ‘X’ on it might look good. This would allow you to fill up at a gas station without having to pay the transit portion of the fuel. In addition, many of you ‘no busers’ probably make use of the South Surrey Park and Ride to access transit and have probably found that the lot is full, so another suggestion would be that you have your own section where your car stickers allow you priority parking. I haven’t forgotten the people unable to drive. These ‘no busers’ should receive taxi vouchers to allow them to reach the nearest bus stop. It goes without saying all property owners in the aforementioned zone should not be paying any transit taxes and this should be deducted from their property taxes each year. One more thought. If TransLink would dust off those bus stops built five years ago along 24 Avenue and never used, the cost of further expanding the C53 would be
minimal and a bus could run down 24th to hook up with the Langley system. That would be a start, since buses are needed on 32nd and 16th, as well as many other areas. We have been asking for these expansions for years, and it’s about time South Surrey got its fair share. Christine Allen, Surrey
Little control over land value Editor: Would you consider an increase of 31 per cent on your 2012 property assessment to be reasonable? I have spoken with many other homeowners and none of them have received any increases even close to this. Sixteen to 20 per cent is high enough, but 31 per cent is BS. This is going to translate into a tax grab par extraordinaire. As I write this, I patiently wait for the local appraiser to return my phone call… waiting… waiting. Although one can file a formal appeal, I have misgivings as to how efficient and effective this whole complaint process will be. So far, it’s
not looking too promising. Upon reading the fine print, the burden of proof rests with the complainant, and they must provide evidence. Just how does one dispute property values that are determined entirely by local real estate market conditions? It’s next to impossible. As I recall, we had a recession of sorts in 2008 and, with the European debt crisis in full swing, who is to say our real estate values will remain high? Can the local assessor guarantee me that? Maybe I should be entitled to ask for some form of guarantee that my property holds its value throughout 2012. This bubble we live in – South Surrey – has blown up from the Asian markets’ interest, a fickle interest we have little or no control over, one that has risen and fallen over the years, sometimes fallen with a very hard landing, too. I’m old enough to remember the previous crashes that began in the early 1980s. I have read very little news coverage on these extreme increases of 31 per cent, like my own. I’d like to see a little more attention given to the greedy guts tax grab, a l’il heat, a l’il shame wouldn’t hurt either. Patricia Tyler, Surrey

Linda Ewart appeals to White Rock council to support a call for the installation of smart meters to be optional.
Fighting for the power to say no An open letter to Surrey-Cloverdale MLA Kevin Falcon. On Jan. 27, I phoned BC Hydro to request that a smart meter not be installed at my home. I was promptly told, in so many words, that I had no choice, a smart meter would be installed at my home. I will be out of province at the time the proposed installation will take place and I strenuously object to anyone doing anything around my house while I am absent. That didn’t phase the Hydro employee at all. The installation will take place. I pointed out to the person that I, among others, had fought in the Second World War, where too many of our military died to preserve our basic freedoms, not the least of which was our freedom of “choice.” If a meter is installed at my home when I have made it plain that I do not want it, that freedom of “choice” has been taken away from me. To remind you, the Second World War was a fight against fascism. Here we are in 2012 watching our freedom of “choice” being denied to myself and others. Surrey council unanimously has recently made it clear that we citizens should have a choice as to whether or
not we want these meters installed in our homes. Now it is up to Premier Christy Clark, you and the rest of your colleagues to give us back our freedom of “choice.” BC Hydro is a Crown corporation over which, I assume, the provincial legislature must have some control. I request that you exercise that control. Joseph R. Marshall, Surrey Editor: It is obvious from reading all the letters in the paper that the majority of people do not want the smart meters. Surrey council voted to give people the option of having smart meters or not. Coun. Marvin Hunt stated that their motion will not make a difference because the government will throw it in the garbage. Does the government think so little of their people? Canadians are very complaisant about their freedom and I am told many times you can’t fight the government. It is never to late to fight for your freedom. The smart meters are about freedom to choose. Mary Mikelson, Surrey

Time for getting down to business businesses.” Helping forge the way ahead, The South Surrey and White Hollick said, is recognition that Rock Chamber of Commerce a chamber of commerce is a is concentrating on a brighter group of people who want to be outlook for 2012 – including represented “in a way that helps an anticipated budget surplus of them do business but is also about $35,000 for this fiscal year. building a better community.” That’s the message from chamber “It’s not that much different from president Gary Hollick and Cliff a trade union in a lot of ways,” he Annable – who was formally said. “Ultimately, our employers recognized as the organization’s are the three levels of government, interim executive director at including the City of Surrey and the Jan. 24 chamber luncheon – the City of White Rock.

It’s no secret the chamber has “There have to be more benefits had its challenges in recent years, and the chamber has to be more Hollick acknowledged. relevant to the members.

Gary Hollick and Cliff Annable are planning to move the chamber into a more community-focused direction. transportation, health care and job creation. “When you get married and get a job, you take ownership of the community, but when your kids get old enough, if there is not continuing education available to them, they’ll go somewhere else,” Hollick said. “It’s important to keep families together.” When SFU’s Surrey campus opened up, he noted, “we were guaranteed 5,000 seats – but we’ve been funded for half of that.” He added the chamber wants to work with both SFU and Kwantlen Polytechnic University to help the institutions achieve their goals. Hollick said the chamber will also be speaking up on inequities in the transportation system such as the lack of bus service in White Rock and South Surrey compared with Vancouver. “Behind Campbell Heights is the largest chunk of industrial land in the Lower Mainland, but we don’t

have a bus system going in there.” And while Hollick termed Peace Arch Hospital “world class,” the aging population in the area demands continuing vigilance to see health-care standards maintained. “If we don’t have adequate health care in all aspects, people will leave,” he said. Job creation also means a strategy that is about more than simply creating minimum-wage jobs, Hollick said. “People have to have enough left over (from their income) to spend back into the community,” he said. Although big-box stores are on the way for the Grandview Heights area, the chamber also needs to focus on smaller, locally based businesses that feed back more into the local community, Hollick said. South Surrey – and particularly White Rock – needs to develop a vision which makes the most of
local business, he said. “I was speaking with a futurist who has been looking at retail trends, and he said that, in actual fact, the Peninsula has the ‘perfect storm’ conditions to become a boutique community,” Hollick said. “The future is boutiques – communities that put together stores that specialize, to the extent that a store that sells nuts and bolts becomes ‘the’ store that sells every nut and bolt.” And there’s more that can be done, Hollick and Annable believe, to create a Peninsula community with a distinct identity and theme. ”The chamber isn’t just about business – it’s the whole package,” said Hollick. “It’s about feeling that you can’t wait to get home to your community. We want you to own it and love it and be part of it. Everything’s intertwined.”

Treat Your Sweetheart this Valentine’s
Zingy one-liners and situation comedy make up the show
Try Drinking Alone this week White Rock Players Club’s latest production – the Norm Foster comedy Drinking Alone – opens Wednesday (Feb. 8, 8 p.m.) at Coast Capital Playhouse,1532 Johnston Rd.). Directed by Susanne de Pencier, who has brought her skilled hand and casting expertise to both romantic comedies and pantomimes in past seasons, the show is typical of Canada’s most produced playwright – a surface patina of zingy one-liners and situation comedy covering a soft heart and a few telling emotional insights. Running until Feb. 25, Drinking Alone follows the chaotic reunion of two adult children with their long-estranged father – providing a vehicle for some of the Players Club’s better-known actors (Roger
Drinking Alone runs at Coast Capital Playhouse until Feb. 25. Currie, Sheila Keating, Vanessa Klein), plus a couple of new faces (Sarah Green and Terry Thomas). The father, Ivan, (Currie) returns to town after 15 years with a new wife, Phyllis (Keat-
ing) in tow, triggering crises for both daughter, Carrie (Green) and son, Joe (Thomas). Carrie’s a famous television news personality, but she’s also on the way to becoming an alcoholic, just like the mother
to whose not-so-tender mercies their father abandoned them years before. Joe is an unambitious perpetual bachelor who runs the family’s moribund drycleaning business. But, in an attempt to impress his father, he takes an extraordinary step – hiring a professional escort, Renee (played by former Players Club panto regular Klein), to masquerade as his fiancée. The show runs to Feb. 25 with evening performances at 8 p.m. Wednesday to Saturday, and a 2:30 p.m. matinee Saturday, Feb. 25. To purchase tickets for Drinking Alone, go online to www. whiterockplayersclub.com. Admission prices range from $15 (for seniors and students) to $17.

Richard Weinberger scoops pair of medals at South American open-water events
Swimmer earns spot at Olympic qualifier Richard Weinberger
South Surrey native Richard Weinberger got a little closer to fulfilling his Olympic dream in the last few weeks, after back-to-back podium finishes in South America. Weinberger, a former member of the Pacific Sea Wolves Swim Club who now lives and trains in Victoria, assured himself a spot on the starting blocks at Olympic qualifiers later this spring after he snared a silver medal in a men’s 10-km open-water World Cup swim
meet in Viedma, Argentina Feb. 2. Weinberger, 21, finished the grueling marathon swim in one hour, 55 minutes and 29 seconds – just one second behind world champion Spiros Gianniotis of Greece. Russian swimmer Yevgeny Dratsev placed third. “It was a solid performance for Richard,” said his coach Ron Jacks in a release. “It was a tough race as the swimmers went against the current.
“Richard continued to solidify his position among the best open-water swimmers in the world.” The silver-medal showing was the second podium finish for Weinberger in as many weeks; at the end of January, he finished third at a World Cup race in Santos, Brazil – a race that was also won by Gianniotis. Canadian swimmers are currently vying for the chance to make the national squad that will swim at the
2012 Summer Olympics in London. A spot at the Olympics would be the biggest achievement to date for Weinberger, who has been swimming in open-water World Cup events since 2010. He’s already competed at a number of prestigious international meets, including FINA World Open Water Swimming Championships and World Aquatic Championships. - Nick Greenizan
Surrey second in conference
Eagles’ run continues Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter
With two more wins and an overtime loss last week, the Surrey Eagles continued to distance themselves from rival teams chasing them for second place in the BC Hockey League’s Coastal Conference. And if not for a handful of overtime losses – four in the last 10 games – they may have even found themselves perched atop the standings in first place. “We just haven’t been able to finish games off when it’s four-on-four or three-on-three,” Eagles head coach Matt Erhart said of the team’s overtime troubles. “That’s probably the reason we’re second, not first.” Nevertheless, the team is still riding a hot streak, picking up at least a point in 16 of the last 17 games. On Wednesday, they whipped the Langley Rivermen 8-2, Friday in Cowichan fell 3-2 in OT to the Capitals and Saturday returned to the win column with a 3-1 road win over the Nanaimo Clippers. Surrey is five points shy of the first-place Powell River Kings, and two up on the third-place Capitals. But more importantly, their recent run has given them a 13-point cushion between themselves and fifth-place Nanaimo. Four teams from the conference make the playoffs. “Our first goal is to just make the playoffs, that’s why it’s really important to get points, even if you lose,” Erhart said. “The standings are just so tight.” On Wednesday, the Eagles were paced by

Captain Tyler Morley and defenceman Steve Koshey had two goals apiece, and Brandon Morley added one to round out the scoring. “That was a really good win,” Erhart said. Friday, the Eagles clawed back twice from one-goal deficits before eventually falling to
Cowichan in extra time. Michael Stenerson scored the team’s first goal, and Trevor Cameron added a second, which tied the game late in the third period to send it to overtime. No comeback was needed Saturday in Nanaimo, as the Eagles jumped out to a 2-0 lead on goals from McGovern and Brett Mulcahy, and Alex Hagen added an empty-
netter in the third to seal the win. Andrew Hunt was in net all three games for Surrey. After playing the majority of their recent games on the road, the Eagles return to the nest this weekend with two games at South Surrey Arena. On Friday, they host Cowichan Valley and Saturday will battle Langley. Both games start at 7 p.m.

BC Games office set to open Rick Kupchuk Black Press
Volunteers with the 2012 B.C. Summer Games will soon have a “home.” That’s what Diana Klingner, operations manager for the July 19-22, 2012 sporting event, calls the B.C. Summer Games office in Newton. Anticipated to open Monday (Feb. 6), the office will be where Klingner and the chairs of the 16 committees will co-ordinate preparation and planning for a four-day event that will be staffed by close to 4,000 volunteers and feature almost 3,000 athletes com-
peting in more than 20 sports, such as soccer, swimming, rowing, wrestling, softball and more. Klingner says she was appointed operations manager “almost by fluke” back in November. After having organized the International Congress of the Transplantation Society at the Vancouver Convention Centre last August, she answered a posting and within weeks was appointed to her current position. “I love doing things like this,” she said, listing ski shows and medical conferences among other events she has overseen. “Every single event is different,
and you meet so many different types of people. This is different because it’s sports. It’s more volunteer than professional.” Volunteers have been named to oversee 16 directorates, each of which will oversee a specific role in the B.C. Summer Games operations, in areas such as accommodation, administration, transportation, promotion, food services, medical, security, registration and results. The BC Summer Games takes place at venues in Surrey, Abbotsford and Langley. For more information, visit bcgames.org

Five named to U17 soccer side Five local soccer players are with national teams currently in training this month. Aman Shergill, Kajal Parmar, and Jasmin Dhanda, all of Surrey, as well as Jasmine Mander of North Delta, were named last week to Soccer Canada’s women’s under-17 team which played Germany in an international match. The two teams played to a scoreless draw. The game was part of Canada’s 10-day training camp in Fort Lauderdale, which began last Tuesday and runs through to next Thursday. The national under20 women’s team begins its preparations for the CONCACAF (Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football) championship in Panama this month, with Surrey’s Nicole Setterlund one of the 22 players on the team. A preparation camp will run Feb. 13-26 in San Jose, Costa Rica, with the team arriving in Panama Feb. 27. The tourament takes place March 1-11. All five players at national team camps are former members of BC Soccer’s provincial team program. “BC Soccer’s provincial
teams programs have always been regarded as being extremely professional and led by a highly qualified and dedicated technical
staff,” said BC Soccer president Charlie Cuzzetto. “We wish these players all the best with their respective national teams.”

LICENSED STYLIST needed. Apply with resume to: 1665 - 128th St.
Dyck, Frank February 14, 1926 - January 29, 2012 On January 29, Frank passed away peacefully after a long and brave battle with heart disease. His loving wife Frieda (Wiebe) predeceased him in November 2004. After over 50 years of marriage, they are now reunited in peace and joy for eternity. Frank was born on February 14, 1926 in Einlage, Russia and immigrated to Winnipeg, Canada through Germany in 1948. Frank had two homes that he loved in Canada. He ﬁrst settled in Winnipeg where he was an active businessman for over 30 years, ﬁrst as owner of Kildonan Plumbing and then, owner of Thor Foundry. He and Frieda were part of a large Mennonite community of family and friends. His fondest memories were created at his cottage in Grand Marais and later in the Big Whiteshell, Manitoba where he spent many hours ﬁshing and boating with his children, grandchildren, and friends. When he was not enjoying the great outdoors, Frank was busy pursing his other passions: golf, watching hockey, playing cribbage and traveling the world with Frieda. They particularly enjoyed their winters in Hawaii. Retirement took them both to their second home in South Surrey, B.C. It was here that Frank developed his love of gardening and mastered the art of growing roses. He took great pride and joy in his new home. Always up for a joke and a story, Frank was the life of the party. Frank will remain forever in the hearts of the loving family he leaves behind: brothers John (St. Catharines) and Peter (Bishkek), children Linda (husband Harry) Handalian in San Francisco, Kathy (husband Joe) Barone in Melbourne and Robert (wife Sandra) Dyck in White Rock. He will be missed and dearly remembered by his six grandchildren: Drew and Marc Handalian, Leah (Barone) and Chris MacDonald, Phillip Barone, David Dyck and Justyna Haitner and Rachel Dyck. This fall he was blessed with the birth of a great-grandchild, Jett MacDonald (Barone). After a full and rich life, a great and loving spirit is at rest. In lieu of ﬂowers, the family ask that donations be made to the Mennonite Central Committee at ”http://www.mcc.org/Ways To Give. A celebration of life will take place in the spring of 2012.

New Exhibition BC Electric: More Than Just a Tram Explore the new possibilities electricity brought to Surrey. In 1910 the BC Electric Railway ofﬁcially opened its line connecting New Westminster to Chilliwack. Through four decades the railway moved freight and passengers within Surrey while connecting the communities to our east with the markets to our west. The arrival of electricity also paved the way for new industry and technology, powering lumber mills and lighting our homes. Presented in partnership with The Fraser Valley Heritage Railway Society and the Chilliwack Museum.
