Mayor calls for tougher sentences for gun crimes

Two shot, one killed in Surrey hit Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Shots rang out in Panorama Ridge Thursday night, leaving one man dead and another critically injured in what police are describing as a targeted hit. Surrey RCMP responded to a call of shots fired in the 13900-block of 56 Avenue around 11 p.m. Thursday, and found two men, 27 and 28 years old, on the front lawn of a property. Both were taken to hospital, where one died and the other remains in critical condition. Friday morning, several orange police-evidence cones surrounded a new-model black Chevy Silverado truck on the lawn of a home in the area. The driver’s-side window appeared to have bullet holes in it. Neighbours in the upscale neighbourhood said they heard six to eight shots ring out in rapid succession; one described the gunfire as sounding like a semi-automatic weapon. The four-acre property was sold last year, and neighbours said it was rented out to Caucasian males who sported full sleeves (arms) of tattoos, and who always wore hooded jackets. “They were extremely intimidating,” one neighbour said.  see page 4

A helicopter pilot killed in a crash Tuesday while on a training exercise near Chilliwack was a father of two who lived and grew up in Cloverdale and South Surrey. Dave Brolin, 46, joined the RCMP in June 2006. A statement released by the RCMP described Brolin as a dedicated family man who flew Lower Mainland Traffic Services helicopters Air 1, Air 2 and

Rideout said in the statement. “(Brolin) was also a part of our RCMP family and he will be missed.” Brolin had an eight-year-old daughter and an 11-year-old son.

During his tour of duty with the U.S. military, Brolin flew various sorties during Operation Desert Storm, the first

Air 5, often used in search-and-rescue operations, was regularly piloted by Dave Brolin.

Crash under investigation  from page 1 Gulf War in 1991 that saw the U.S. armed forces and 34 allies liberate Kuwait after the small Arab nation was invaded by Iraq. Tributes to Brolin are pouring in to the BC RCMP News Facebook page, as well as to a webpage created by the RCMP for those wishing to leave condolences for his family. He was known within the local aviation community as a talented pilot with enormous personal charm, one of a handful in B.C. who specialized in flying film helicopters to capture airborne footage for movie and television productions. People who knew Brolin say he left the movie business to work for the RCMP because he wanted to spend more time with his family, but he would still get called by producers because of his reputation for producing perfectly framed, rock-steady footage. He flew a number of helicopter camera flights with another pilot, Ralph Mendoza, who said their last mission together was capturing the very first flight of Boeing’s new 787 Dreamliner for a 3D IMAX film, Legends of Flight, in December of 2009.

Online footage from the event shows the helicopter pacing the 787 just a few metres away from its wingtip as the big jet rumbles down the runway in Seattle. “It was a national spectacle, and our little red helicopter was seen all over the world on news reports,” Mendoza writes on Facebook. “The filming went extremely well and we were all tickled to see ourselves on TV.” In posting his recollection to the RCMP site, Mendoza said he wanted to “express my deepest condolences to Dave’s family, and hope this happy little memory may bring a little comfort with it.” It was one of dozens of messages from across Canada and the U.S. “(Brolin) was an amazing member of a unique and special group of individuals who serve and protect us each and every day,” writes a Nanaimo RCMP auxiliary constable. Bill Randall of West Shore RCMP writes that Brolin’s “dedication and selfless nature was always something that many others could only hope to attain and all who knew him regarded him with great respect and admiration.”

news Surrey-Fleetwood politician’s poverty experiment moves to Downtown Eastside

‘Crisis is all over me’ says MLA Brar Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Arriving in his one-room apartment in the Downtown Eastside, Jagrup Brar puts his tofu and milk in a bag, and uses a belt cinched to a table to dangle it out the window. The fridge in the 11 foot by 11 foot room is broken and the subzero temperature outside makes for a satisfactory alternative. He has a mattress on the floor where he sleeps, a hot plate and a small table. It’s a snug spot that’s relatively warm and dry. He shares a bathroom with 11 other people living in the single room occupancy (SRO) complex in the country’s poorest postal code. Brar, who looks thinner and a lot more serious, has a week left on his month living on the welfare rate. The MLA for Surrey-Fleetwood took the Welfare Challenge from a group called Raise the Rates, an anti-poverty group, which wants to see higher amounts for welfare. Brar says getting a taste of poverty has been life-changing. The first half of the month, he rented a room in Surrey, and now he’s living across from Pigeon Park. He spent the first few days speaking with town hall groups and organizations for single mothers. Poverty in the Downtown Eastside runs a lot deeper than it does in Surrey, he says. Brar says he’s operating at about 50 per cent mental capacity, due to malnutrition and lack of sleep. To get a shower ahead of the pack, he wakes up at 4:30 a.m. He began the month with $610 – the amount of money welfare gives a person who is looking for a job. After rent, that money quickly disappeared. By Friday he was down to $8.50. He will soon be completely broke. From there, it’s to the street, to line up for services. “I feel right now that crisis is all over me,” he says. “I’m running out of money very quickly.” He’s already out of shaving cream and soap, but says he’ll be spending

I can’t afford to buy meat, and I can’t afford to cook meat, because I don’t have the tools.” With a week left, Brar sees something the poverty-stricken don’t –

an end to the hardship. On Feb. 1, Brar will come back to his warm Surrey home; to his family and well-paying job. Brar realizes the limitations that creates to the exercise, but says the last month has changed his perspective forever. He wants to bring about change when he returns to the legislature,

but says that has to be done responsibly. He’ll be taking his experience over the last month into the NDP caucus to develop a comprehensive poverty reduction plan. “With clear targets and timelines,” Brar says. “I think that’s the responsible way to do it.” Doing nothing is clearly not a choice, he says.

pulled out, saying they wanted more flexibility to do their own deals and address local issues. But the death knell arguably came this month, when heavyweights Vancouver and Burnaby pulled out of the LRB, joining other non-members like Surrey, Richmond and Port Coquitlam. West Vancouver and Delta are also slated to withdraw this spring. They leave behind smaller municipalities, which consultant Jim Dorsey warned last year would be more vulnerable to major unions. The last big round of bargaining happened in 2007, when cities were under pressure to secure peace through the 2010 Olympics. Richmond broke ranks that year and signed a deal that gave its unionized workers a 17.5 per cent pay hike over five years. Bateman said the 2007 settlement was excessively rich in light of the fact the world was about to tumble into a deep recession. Now, he says, taxpayers need a chance to

“catch their breath.” Bateman is urging cities to follow the provincial government’s lead and adopt a net-zero mandate where there can be no net increase in cost to the city, but pay raises are possible if efficiencies are found to fund them. New Metro board chair Greg Moore agreed the last contracts were too rich but said he’s not convinced the end of group negotiating will be as bad as some cities fear. “I think this gives more flexibility to the municipalities to bargain based on the needs of their local residents,” he said. Moore is the mayor of Port Coquitlam, which hasn’t been a member of the LRB since 1982. Surrey has never been a member. Contracts expired Dec. 31 in Richmond, Abbotsford, Burnaby, Vancouver, North Vancouver City, North Vancouver District, New Westminster, Delta, Surrey, Port Coquitlam and Coquitlam.

Sunnyside school approved Alex Browne Staff Reporter

A long-awaited new Sunnyside Elementary in South Surrey, valued at more than $12.8 million, was given the go-ahead this week by Victoria. Surrey School District is breathing a sigh of relief, Surrey board of education chair Laurae McNally said. But staff know the pressure is now on to build the new school as soon as possible, she added, saying the soonest it can come on stream, is September of 2013. The new school, to be built at 2828 159 St., will replace the current facility at 15250 28 Ave. According to a Ministry of Education statement, it will place the school closer to the heart of the Grandview Heights area, providing 100 more elementary spaces,

and 80 more full-day kindergarten spaces, plus a Neighborhood Learning Centre and Montessori school components. The rebuild of Sunnyside Elementary has been on hold for more than five years since it was originally green-lighted in the 2005-2006 school year. The first setback came when the Ministry of Education informed the district of the learning centre requirement. Subsequent years of waiting were followed, last year, by an unexpected order for new designs to be drawn up. The current green light, which came Jan. 18, finally answers what has been a nagging question for both parents and school administrators, McNally said. “And most of the nagging has come from me,” she noted. “Those parents, and that com-

munity, have been incredibly patient through all of this.” The replacement school – like any new school in the district – is “long overdue,” McNally said. According to school district figures, Surrey’s student population has grown by 60 per cent in the elementary grades and 40 per cent in the secondary grades in the last year alone. McNally said staff are tidying up odds and ends of the project, and preparing invitations to tender to go out to business journals. “You have to wait for six weeks for tenders to come in and then the board will award a contract, and then we can have a hole in the ground,” she said. “We’ve done this so many times we can move fast on it – the red tape is all over the other side of the water.”

Distracted drivers still a hazard


n the first 20 months of British Columbia’s distracted driving law, police issued 46,008 tickets to drivers for using hand-held electronic devices while behind the wheel. Another 1,372 tickets were issued for emailing or texting while driving. The Ministry of Public Safety and solicitor general says that means 16 people are still alive thanks to a 12 per cent reduction in motor vehicle accidents involving fatalities and serious injuries. The statistics suggest the two-year-old ban on talking or texting on a cellphone while driving has been effective. But as anyone who spends any amount of time on the province’s roads and highways will likely attest, the reality is somewhat different. Drivers are still talking on their cell phones. Some are just more discreet about doing it. They wait until they’re on quieter side streets, or they look around to ensure no police are nearby. Or they try to hide their activity altogether, keeping their phone out of sight as they press numbers or check their text messages – actions that only add to the slew of risks, as drivers’ eyes veer downward, and even further away from the road in front of them. Others openly seem to be flaunting the law, chatting with their cellphone pressed up to their ear as they drive along busy thoroughfares. A recent survey by ICBC says their excuses range from outright defiance at the righteousness of the law, to misguided affection for the feel of the phone in their hand, to a wrongheaded belief that making or taking a call while at a red light doesn’t count as driving. The risks presented by distracted driving are very real. In fact, statistics suggest that you’re 23 times more likely to get into an accident if you’re using your cellphone while driving. So even though the coast may be clear of vigilant police, stay off the phone while driving. The potential price of taking or making a call or text is simply not worth it.

So can Redford’s vast Utah ranch and ski resort development. Redford parrots the claim that oil sands extraction produces three times the greenhouse gases of conventional oil. This is the big lie of “tar sands” campaigners. Three quarters of emissions from all crude are generated when the refined fuel is burned by things like Redford’s limo, or the airline for which he voiced TV commercials. The Alberta government reports that average emissions from oil sands crude are 107 grams per megajoule, slightly more than U.S. Gulf Coast crude at 104. California heavy crude comes in higher, at 114. And if carbon is the issue, what about U.S. coal mines that tear the tops off mountains and run the longest trains in world history to feed the country’s 600plus coal-fired power plants? Where is Redford on that? And hijacking the regulatory process? Look no further than the Dogwood Initiative, an obscure Victoria outfit that admits to taking about 40 per cent of its funding from U.S. sources. Its “mob the mic” campaign signed up 1,600 people to speak at the Enbridge pipeline hearings. Among the signatories are “Cave Man” and “Jonathan Seagull.” But wait, aren’t oil, power and aquaculture companies foreign-funded? Certainly some are. The difference is, they create jobs.

Let’s hear more from EPCOR Editor: Re: Two-tier system leaves bad taste, Jan. 10 letters. I do sympathize with Michael King and his reflection re: our White Rock water supply and its owner, EPCOR. White Rock City doesn’t own the water we drink from our White Rock faucets and never has. 1. Tastes bad when brewing coffee or tea. And I now have to use a water filter for finer use and sensitive purposes when water needs to be part of something. 2. Stains bathroom and produces buildup as never before chlorine. 3. Chlorine is not healthy. I am at an age when impurities in the drinking- or cooking-water supply as provided today is not desired and may cause health risk of cardiovascular nature. My skin is negatively affected, dehydrated. 4. Cannot as easy as before use water hose to clean my car… leaves stains on the paint on the exterior. 5. And foremost, water was one of the qualities weighing heavy when deciding to settle in White Rock! Before EPCOR moved into their present situation, I was invited for a brief meeting and coffee by two ladies, both of whom were and still are (I believe) marketing executives in EPCOR. I was asked, for whatever reasons, if I had any idea what ‘people in White Rock would say, or how one was to react, should chlorine be introduced in the water supply’, at that time soon to become EPCOR property and responsibility. I responded by asking, ‘Why? Why would you do that to a pristine, natural and non-challenged water supply? There are no risks that we know of and thus redundant and not a necessary action to be implemented on the part of your operations.’ The reply was from one of the ladies. In fact, both stated, ‘Chlorine is used in Alberta and Calgary and so on…’ My response on that comment was, ‘We are not in Alberta, but in White Rock where the water is natural, soft and nice and tasting very well. So why spoil our White Rock water with chlorine?’ It would be a great thing to read, as reply and comment to Mr. King’s letter to the editor, a comment or statement from EPCOR and not just a footnote from the PAN editor. Johan Sandstrom, White Rock

Weathering the climate debate Editor: Re: Of course mankind has an impact, Jan. 12 letters. Schooled on Al Gore’s knee, it is no wonder that the Warm-Mongers, in a futile attempt to discredit my defence of Dr. Roy Strang, seize the Gore ploy of claiming that I “said” things which never passed my keyboard. No, I never said that

humans have no impact on the environment; never claimed that CO2 had no role in GW. Grasping at another Gore ruse, (letter-writer Ivan) Scott claims support where none exists. He suggests, “Just ask the people who have died from drought.” No one knows how much CO2 is emitted by volcanoes. The Warmists say: “hardly any”; while the Sceptical Scientists say: “a great deal”. (Letter-writer Bill) McConnell converts a tiny increase in CO2 into a scary 37 per cent. If hypothetically the increase had been from 0.01 per cent to 0.02 per cent, presumably he would use that 100 per cent increase to justify three times the hysteria. No one agency is authorized to state the earth’s average temperature. All use different raw data and with different analyses produce different results. I quoted the respected Dr. Phil Jones and East Anglia. (Letter-writer Stephen Faraher-)Amidon chooses to quote the Warmist-biased, NOAA. Also, is there any point to determining the “average” earth temperature in a calendar year over jungle, desert, the poles and 70 per cent of the surface as ocean? Prof. Bjarne Andresen (University of

Copenhagen) said that, that average is “…as meaningless as the average number in a telephone directory!” No Warm-Monger dare tackle 1940 to 1975, the 35-year period when CO2 rose but temperatures fell. My main conclusion is unassailable. The link between CO2 and temperature is “uncertain”. David Poole, Surrey ■ In response to the debate regarding climate change: There is no excuse for us to continue polluting our planet: extinction and habitat destruction; pesticides and chemicals in wildlife, food and our children; sewage sludge pouring into our ground water and oceans; plastic filling our oceans; the collapse of our wild salmon stocks and bee colonies. Sadly, this is the short list of destruction we are all in some way responsible for. Therefore, our time, energy and all the ‘expertise’ that we as a community can bring to the table now needs to be focused on solving the problems we have created on planet earth. S. Watkins, White Rock ■ Climate change expert Mark Jaccard from Simon Fraser

University says B.C. is on its way to blowing its emission reduction targets. This concerns me on a number of levels, not the least of which is the fact B.C. has, up until now, been a world leader on environmental issues with the toughest greenhouse gas emission reduction targets in North America. According to Jaccard, the only way for B.C. to meet its emission reduction targets is through a major move to renewable energy such as hydroelectricity, wind, solar or run-of-river. Fortunately, renewable energy is available in great abundance within B.C.’s borders and we merely need to develop it and put it into service for the province to maintain its environmental leadership. In terms of job creation, I can’t think of anything that would produce more jobs throughout B.C. than a plan to massively expand the province’s renewable energy infrastructure on a scale similar to that of the massive hydro energy development projects that took place in B.C. during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Jobs and the environment don’t need to cancel each other out. B.C. can successfully lead on both. Yolanda Lora Vilchis, Surrey

Letter-writer Catharina Leidel questions a zoning-change proposal for property near 184 Street and 24 Avenue.

Rezoning will threaten watershed Editor: Open letter to Mayor Dianne Watts and Council According to the Peace Arch News, Jan. 3, the Pacific Land Group Inc (Oleg Verbenkov) wants to rezone two big parcels of land on 24 Avenue at 184 Street, from a General Agriculture Zone (A-1) to a Comprehensive Zone (CD) in order to turn more agricultural land into eight business parks and other industrial businesses. And so will pollute the neighbouring ALR land, and the streams and creeks of the Erickson Creek Watershed. The area you studied from 2006 till 2008. Because if you look at the maps of the Erickson Creek Watershed – your “Global Perspective, Social Focus” handout (the one you didn’t give out) – you will see that the polluted runoff of the Campbell Heights industrial area runs into the Dall Brook, lakes, Erickson Creek, Nicomekl River and Pacific Ocean.

Didn’t you, the provincial or federal government install a million-dollar fish ladder between the lakes and the Erickson Creek on 29A Avenue in August/ September 2011? So, all your Campbell Heights construction will not do the South Surrey fish habitat’s growth any good – but maybe that’s what you want to accomplish? Because it’s strange that not only have you been bulldozing the Campbell Height’s agricultural areas so far but you want to destroy the Grandview Heights 4 area, too. So your Global Perspective, Local Focus will become the environmental apocalypse of South Surrey if you go ahead and let the Pacific Land Group Inc. develop another piece of one of the last remaining agricultural land areas in South Surrey.

news VPD wants charges laid against another 20 suspects

Hear Life.

More rioters charged Jeff Nagel

I wished I hadn’t waited so long...

Black Press

I had known for 12 years I should probably get hearing aids. I went to Crystal Hearing Centre and had my hearing screening done, I needed 2 hearing aids. They were so helpful, friendly and willing to answer all of my questions. I’ve had my new hearing aids for 1 1/2 years now and they are so comfortable it’s easy to forget I even have them in my ears!

File photo

VPD wants more charged for riots. VPD says the young man, who has no criminal record, contacted investigators before they could arrest him. All suspects are accused by police of participating in a riot, while mischief or break-and-enter are the next most common charges being requested. The 85 men and 15 women have an average age of 21, and 20 were young offenders at the time of the riot. The men range in age from 15 to 52, while females range from 17 to 27. Crown counsel has so far approved 78 charges against 30 riot suspects, all of whom either turned themselves in or have been arrested. Rioters torched police cars and other vehicles and looted stores in downtown Vancouver June 15 after the Boston Bruins beat the Vancouver Canucks in Game 7 of the Cup final.

Don’t wait if you think you should have your hearing checked, it’s as easy as giving them a call to make an appointment! Dorothy S.

Vancouver Police are recommending 63 new charges against 20 more suspected rioters who ran amok during the 2011 Stanley Cup riot last June. The announcement brings the total number of suspects the VPD wants charged to 100. Twenty-six of them are from Surrey, 18 are from Vancouver, 17 are from Burnaby, six are from Maple Ridge, four are from North Vancouver and three or fewer hail from other Lower Mainland cities, Vancouver Island or elsewhere. The VPD said 82 per cent of suspects are from outside Vancouver, while 18 per cent live in the city. The force listed three examples of the new suspects who may be charged. One of them, a 15-year-old from Surrey, is accused of helping flip a parked car, stealing something from its trunk, pushing over a portable toilet, and later smashing a police car with a metal fence connector. Police also say a Surrey 19-year-old who attends university in Kelowna helped flip a parked truck and flicked lit cigarettes at the pool of gas leaking from it – all of which was caught on video. The truck didn’t explode and the

Jack Brown (left) taught at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary from 19711993. Although he didn’t teach Alan Clegg, a 1960 Tweedsmuir grad (right), he did teach Clegg’s three kids in the late 1980s and early ‘90s. The two are organizing the school’s 100th anniversary reunion on June 2.

on’t tell anyone, but Alan Clegg was once responsible for the evacuation of Lord Tweedsmuir High School. It’s a true story, says the 69-year-old former Tweedsmuir student with a chuckle – part of a Grade 12 high school science project gone wrong in 1960 during his graduating year, when Clegg and his classmates were assigned to produce chlorine gas for credit. It’s an experiment that would hardly be suggested nowadays, he admits. Jack Brown wasn’t around at the time, but did teach social studies, history, law and career education at the school from 1971 to 1998 – and taught Clegg’s three now-grown children. Today, Brown and Clegg, both retired, are working together on the reunion for the schools’ 100th anniversary on June 2.

Left, Tweedsmuir’s class of 1938 poses in front of the school; right, the building in 1957. “We’re celebrating the oldest high school in Surrey,” says Clegg. Brown, a local historian and the charter chairman of the Lord Tweedsmuir Alumni Association, says the school’s origins date

The gradually evolving site contains slideshows of historic photographs, along with a place to post class photos, a section on school history, photo albums and more. Former classmates and friends of LTS are already posting profiles and updates on their whereabouts in the “classmates” section. Alumni from Halifax, Victoria, Surrey, Cloverdale and even Riyadh, Saudi Arabia have already signed up, leaving “then” and “now” pictures, updates, Facebook links and even tagging their current whereabouts on an interactive locator map. The school’s illustrious namesake, Lord Tweedsmuir, can be found among the list of notable names who have so far posted profiles on the site. “I will be there in spirit if not in body,” the post says. Attendees can buy tickets on the website (there’s a $12 fee to cover costs of security and other services for the event), or donate to the celebration.

Many students, teachers have bonds ‘that they’ve never lost’  from page 11 today’s Cloverdale Traditional School on 56 Avenue. In 1917, Surrey’s had its first (sole) secondary graduate, and the school was renamed Cloverdale Superior School. The following year, there were no graduating students. In 1919, with six grads, the school was renamed Surrey High School; in 1922, it moved to present-day Cloverdale Traditional School, where it stayed until 1957. The school underwent several name changes, finally adopting the name Lord Tweedsmuir in 1940 to honour the late governor general John Buchan, after he

passed away that year. (The word “secondary” only began to be used in the 1990s with school district restructuring). The high school moved to (more or less) its current location on 180 Street near 60 Avenue in 1957, and was rebuilt in its present form in 1993 (though its population was split in 1999, with half of the revised catchmentarea students moving to Clayton Heights Secondary School).

Mayor Watts to appear on reality show Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts was at the River Rock Casino last week, filming a scene for the Gene Simmons reality show, Family Jewels. It was part of the real-life script for the Simmons family that day, as they prepared to launch a new child protection centre in Newton. “All they wanted to do is film me with a meeting with Shannon (Tweed, Simmons’ wife) and (daughter) Sophie prior to the opening of Sophie’s Place,” Watts said. The episode is expected to air in April. Jan 15, Sophie Tweed-Simmons, her mom and KISS frontman Simmons officially opened the child protection centre, Sophie’s Place, believed to be the first of its kind in Metro Vancouver. Sophie Tweed-Simmons has performed a lot of child advocacy work throughout the world, Watts said, adding it’s appropriate that she’s involved in the Surrey initiative. Sophie’s Place will provide physically, mentally and sexually abused children up to the age of 12 with professional, compassionate and nurturing service from doctors, police and counsellors – all under one roof. Right now, there are no firm dollars attached to the launch, but Surrey has committed resources and has expressed a need for the facility. Watts said Tuesday about 1,000 children under the age of 16 annually in Metro Vancouver report sexual or physical abuse. Currently, when that occurs, the kids go to a police station and give a report of what has happened. Watts says seven police officers will be

at the annual Mayor’s Gala will go toward the facility, as will donations from an annual fundraising effort by Sophie Tweed-Simmons. Watts said the concept is taken from the Zebra Centre in Edmonton. “That’s the model,” Watts said. “What this does, is it gives a safe, calm environment for disclosure.”

The centre is expected to open in February. Organizations and members of the public wishing to support the cause can make a charitable donation to: Sophie’s Place Endowment Fund, care of the Child Development Foundation of B.C., at: www. or via mail at 170–7881 128 St. Surrey, BC V3W 4E7.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Surrey picks up three points on weekend road trip

Eagles stick with conference leaders Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

A win and an overtime loss – plus one game postponed due to weather – was enough for the Surrey Eagles to keep pace with the leaders of the BC Hockey League’s Coastal Conference. On Friday, Surrey opened their Vancouver Island trip – the team’s second in as many weekends – with a 3-2 overtime loss to the Nanaimo Clippers, but rebounded Saturday by defeating the Alberni Valley Bulldogs 6-3 on Saturday night. The threeAndrew Hunt point weekend goaltender gave the Eagles 56 points, good enough to sit in a second-place tie with the Cowichan Valley Capitals; both teams trail the conferenceleading Powell River Kings – who beat the Caps 5-1 Saturday – by two points. Weather conditions on Saturday night kept the Capitals – who were to be the Eagles’ Sunday afternoon opponents in Cowichan – from traveling after the loss to Powell River, thus postponing the EaglesCapitals game until later in the season. The game was the second time this season the Birds have had an Island game rescheduled due to weather; a November game against Alberni Valley was rescheduled for Feb. 18. Friday in Nanaimo, the Clippers were paced by forward, and the team’s leading goal-scorer Kyle Kramer, who scored his 23rd and 24th goals of the season – including the overtime winner 1:39 into the extra frame. Kramer’s first goal, on the power play, opened the score midway through the second period, but the Eagles – who gave the Clips six power-play opportunities – responded eight minutes later when captain Tyler Morley scored a shorthanded goal 30 seconds

Surrey Eagles forward Robert Lindores tries a wrap-around attempt during a game – won by Surrey – earlier this month against Nanaimo. The Clippers got a measure of revenge last weekend on Vancouver Island, beating the Eagles 3-2 in overtime. after defenceman Matt Cronin was whistled for a checking-frombehind penalty, which also saw him ejected from the game. Dan Correale put the home team back in front 5:10 into the third period, but the Eagles salvaged a single point from the contest by virtue of Alex Hagen’s power-play marker at the 9:33 mark, which tied the game and sent it into OT. Nanaimo held a distinct shotson-goal advantage in the game, outshooting Surrey 39-21 –

including an 18-shot barrage in the second frame – but Eagles’ goalie Andrew Hunt made 36 saves, earning third-star honours. Hunt, a 19-year-old Surrey native, again made headlines Saturday, stopping a season-high 51 shots to lead the Eagles to their 6-3 win over Alberni Valley. Surrey was outshot in all three periods – including a 22-4 disadvantage in the second – but took a commanding lead late in the first period.

Starting at the 14:53 mark of the opening frame, Eagles’ forwards Trevor Cameron, Hagen and Brett Mulcahy each scored exactly 60 seconds apart to put the visitors up 3-0 after 20 minutes. The teams traded goals in the second period – Lars Hepso scored on the power-play for Alberni, and Sean McGovern notched his eighth goal of the year – and again in the third, when each team scored twice. Robert Lindores and Brandon Morley potted goals

for Surrey, while Hunter Stewart and Tryg Strang replied for the Bulldogs. Surrey blue-liner Steve Koshey chipped in with two assists. After back-to-back coastal road trips, the Eagles will finally return to South Surrey Arena this weekend. They host the Trail Smoke Eaters Friday at 7 p.m., and the reeling Victoria Grizzlies – losers of nine of their last 10 games – on Sunday at 4 p.m.

Sports Reporter

Surrey Eagles blueliner Devon Toews was one of seven B.C. Hockey League players listed among the top North American skaters when NHL Central Scouting released its midterm report earlier this month. Toews, a 17-year-old Abbotsford native, is ranked 181st on the list, which includes junior and college players in Canada and the U.S. who are eligible for the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. Toews has 20 points in 38 games this season – his first in the BCHL. Eagles head coach Matt Erhart is not surprised the blueliner has garnered such attention. “At our spring camp last year, after the first day, (assistant coach) Gary Nylund and I looked at each other and both said, ‘We have to get this kid on our team,’� he said. “He has such a high hockey IQ, and he’s so smooth with the puck, and has good vision – he does a lot of things well that sort of

fly under the radar.� Toews, who stands just five-foot-11 and weighs 160 pounds, committed to NCAA Div. 1 Quinnipiac University earlier this season. “I think he’s going to really develop and get stronger this summer, and then he’s going to be even better,� Erhart said. “He’s a pretty unassuming kid who doesn’t say much, just comes to work every day.� Tops among BCHL players in the report is Prince George Spruce Kings forward Jujhar Khaira, a Cloverdale Minor Hockey alum who has 55 points this season, his second with the Spruce Kings. He is ranked 80th overall. Also on the list: Coquitlam Express centre Alexander Kerfoot (81st), Salmon Arm Silverbacks’ Morgan Zulinick (104th), Merritt Centennials’ defenceman, and Surrey native, Reece Willcox (114th), Prince George’s Paul De Jersey (203rd) and Penticton’s Wade Murphy (204th).

MAKISON, Robert Henry May 31, 1938 - Jan. 11, 2012

It is with a sad heart that we announce the sudden passing of our father, father-in-law, grandpa & friend, Robert. He was known by many alias’ such as Mac, Robbie, Bob, Bobbie and Grumpy Ol’ Fart. He is remembered as a passionately loyal family man who was a comfort to all who knew him. Robert spent many years as a coal miner (mole) in England before immigrating to Canada where he joined Corrections. Robert’s greatest joy came with being on “retired time� where everyday was Saturday and all alarm clocks are buried. Nothing made him smile more than the sight of his first grandson and the time they got to spend together. As per Robert’s request, no service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer’s society in support of his wife, Linda will be appreciated.

Did you know there are over 1500 kilometres of streams and creeks all throughout Surrey where salmon and trout live? Visit these places at the right time of the year and you’ll luck out with seeing spawning salmon make their way upstream to their native creeks. In Bear Creek Park there have been over 900 spawning Chum salmon spotted in one season! In the late winter it seems to be the quietest time in our local streams for seeing fish but don’t be fooled because this is probably the time of the year when the most salmon are actually in the streams in the gravel as eggs waiting for spring so that they can hatch. If you check out the creeks in the spring, in the calmer pools you might be able to spot the schools of small salmon fry that have freshly emerged from the gravels where their eggs were laid the previous fall. Visit the website to learn about great places to see fish in Surrey! 11771
