By Tracy Holmes A former South Surrey border guard who helped smuggle an “enormous” amount of cocaine through the Pacific Highway border crossing has been sentenced to 15 years in jail for the crime. Baljinder Kandola, a Cloverdale resident, learned his fate July 13 in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster. Justice Selwyn Romilly sentenced Kandola’s coaccused, Richmond resident Shminder Johal, to 18 years. In written reasons for sentence, Romilly noted he had “very few mitigating factors to consider.” Describing Kandola as the “facilitator” of the operation, and Johal as the “overseer,” Romilly cited Kandola’s breach of trust and the fact he accepted bribes from Johal

TaxiSaver subsidies won’t be scrapped Officials at TransLink say they didn’t understand impact until the user backlash forced them to take a closer look

By Jeff Nagel TransLink has abandoned its plan to phase out subsidized cab rides for elderly and disabled HandyDart clients, saying it failed to fully grasp the need for the TaxiSaver program. Eliminating the $50 per month subsidy for half-price taxi fares would have saved $1.1 million that TransLink intended to reinvest into the oversubscribed HandyDart custom-transit service to provide more rides that way. But the transportation authority was besieged with protests from angry users, who complained they could at least use TaxiSavers to get a taxi on short notice when HandyDart is unavailable or booked up. In other cases they could get to an appointment with HandyDart but there was no guarantee of a return ride. TransLink board chair Nancy Olewiler said the authority has learned from its error. “The TaxiSaver program is reinstated in its entirety,” she said. “I regret any angst we caused for people who were fearful their program would not continue and they would not have the access they did.” Olewiler said the goal of the change was always to improve service. “It wasn’t a cost saving,” she said. “We actually thought, believe it or not, we were going to make the system better.” TransLink had consulted through its Access Transit Users Advisory Committee, but Olewiler said they later realized how some clients use TaxiSavers in combination with HandyDart and how the taxi coupons provide much more convenience and flexibility. “We didn’t understand the integral nature of TaxiSavers to the whole program,” Olewiler said. “We just didn’t have that depth of understanding.” The planned cancellation of TaxiSavers – sales were to stop this summer and remaining ones were to expire next June – was put on hold pending more consultation by TransLink in May.

More than 18,000 HandyDart trip requests were denied last year because the service was oversubscribed and that problem has worsened this year. TransLink also wanted to crack down on unauthorized use of TaxiSavers because the coupons are often sold on the black market to people who don’t qualify for the program. “As with the U-Pass, we’ve seen people selling TaxiSavers on Craigslist,” Olewiler said. “There is fraud.”

thinks it’s just a “blight on the landscape.” Newly elected councillor Bruce Hayne also objected to the clearcut. “It passed, and I figured it would pass, but I wanted to raise my objection to the removal of those trees,” Hayne said. “We’ll see where it goes at the next public hearing in July.” Coun. Barbara Steele said council asked the developer to save as many of those trees as possible. “The reason I’m in favour of it, I think it’s a development that’s overdue,” Steele said, adding she’s pleased with the heritage preservation on the site. “I went for the scenario that isn’t 100 per cent perfect.” Martin, who did not vote, said she has great concerns with the removal of the forest. “This is like a pristine forest area and I’m very

concerned about it,” Martin said. Watts said she has a lot of concerns about the tree loss. “I’m extremely disturbed to see that there’s a proposal coming forward taking down those kind of trees,” Watts said, noting residents will have their say at the public hearing. “I will go into that with an open mind, but I have some serious concerns.” Between 2001 and

TransLink is exploring ways to bolster identification requirements as part of the rollout of TransLink’s Compass smart card. The decision comes as TransLink is in the midst of a search for savings on multiple fronts to free up money to satisfy its independent commissioner as well as a provincial audit. CEO Ian Jarvis said that process is “consuming” the organization this summer. He pledged a financial plan set for release in September will shed more light on what cost-cutting measures may be pursued. “There are risks that come with these opportunities,” Jarvis said, adding TransLink needs to assess the potential impact on reliability and quality of transit services. TransLink must carve about $50 million a year out of its budget to offset a denied fare increase and to make up for area mayors’ vote to rescind a property tax increase. Promised express bus routes from Langley to Burnaby over the new Port Mann Bridge and down King George Boulevard in Surrey are on hold as a result. Mayors Council vice-chair Peter Fassbender said he hopes TransLink consults carefully as it decides where to cut. “They’re looking at the rationalization of various service levels, unproductive routes, issues on maintenance and a whole host of complex and far-reaching things,” he said. Fassbender said those decisions need to consider communities’ needs, not just “business cases and numbers.”

2008, Surrey was issuing permits to cut down about 10,000 significant trees annually, according to figures obtained by Black Press. Recessionary forces caused significant declines from 2009 to 2011. Critics say despite that decline, they see clearcuts throughout the city. The public hearing on the Bose Farm development is scheduled for July 23 at 7 p.m. at city hall, 14245 56 Avenue.

A breech of trust Kandola played a ‘pivotal role’ as officer on duty in cocaine scheme From page one

inside a GMC Yukon Denali that passed unchecked through the South Surrey truck border crossing into Canada. While Sutherland had argued that, as a “mere facilitator,” his client’s role in the scheme “should be considered less significant than that of Johal,” Romilly disagreed. “The level of sophistication indicates that both Kandola and Johal knew the risk they were taking in pursuing the importation scheme,” said. “This is particularly so for Kandola who was employed in a role that was dedicated to preventing the very activity he was convicted of.” Kandola played “a pivotal role,” Romilly said. According to evidence heard at trial, Johal and Riar headed for the border in two vehicles, with Johal in the lead and Riar following, acting as the “transporter” with the drugs in his vehicle. They timed their trips so Kandola would be the officer on duty, and he waved them through. Police believe the conspirators made several trips between May 2006 and the day of the arrests. Evidence indicated Kandola pocketed at least $10,000 for turning a blind eye to the smuggling, including $4,000 worth of work to upgrade his car, a Mini Cooper. Riar, described as a “minor player” in the scheme, pleaded guilty and was sentenced in 2010 to 12 years in jail. A fourth man, Vancouver resident Charles Lai, was arrested in March 2008 in the U.S. as the alleged leader of the smuggling scheme. He was sentenced to 13 years by a U.S. District Court judge in 2009. In determining Kandola’s sentence, Romilly considered the analysis of the judge who sen-

tenced Daniel Greenhalgh last year. Greenhalgh, who was a South Surrey border guard at the Douglas (Peace Arch) crossing, is serving two years for sexual assault and breach of trust in connection with incidents that occurred while he was on duty in 2007. “[Border Service Officers], like police officers, occupy a special position of trust in the community,” Romilly states. “They are charged with a foundational role in preventing dangerous substances from entering the country. When they abuse their position and seek to profit by criminal activities, all of Canadian society is put at risk.” Both Kandola, who is married and has one young child, and Johal, who is a father of three, were credited for time served. Kandola received one month credit; Johal, two months. Kandola’s sentence included two concurrent 14-year terms for conspiracy to import cocaine and importation of cocaine, plus two concurrent one-year terms for breach of trust and accepting a benefit with intent to facilitate the offence of importing cocaine. Johal’s 18 years include two concurrent 16-year terms for conspiracy to import cocaine and importation of cocaine, plus two years for importation of firearms to be served concurrently with a one-year term for bribery of a border services officer. Both men were also handed 10-year prohibitions from possessing firearms and ammunition, and lifetime bans from possessing restricted or prohibited weapons. Romilly ordered cash seized from Johal’s home – $223,880 – forfeited to the Crown; he also ordered both Johal and Kandola to submit a DNA sample.

Railway society on BIA The Fraser Valley Heritage Railway Society now has representation on the Cloverdale Business Improvement Association. Terry Lister from the society was elected to the Cloverdale BIA’s board of directors for 2012/2013. The election of directors was held at the BIA’s annual general meeting June 30 at the Cloverdale Legion. Lister was the lone nominee from the floor. He was nominated by Rob Patterson and the motion was seconded by Bill Reid. The rest of the board was re-elected by acclamation. Just seven (Norma Brown, Edna Hemlin, Lyle MacMillan, Rob Paterson, Frank Redekop, Bill Reid and Carole Stone) of 14 incumbents attended the meeting. The Fraser Valley Heritage Railway Society is moving its headquarters from Sullivan Station at 152 Street and 64 Avenue to 176 Street just south of Highway 10 in Cloverdale this summer. Next year, the FVHR society plans to launch a tourist-friendly passenger electric rail service staffed with volunteers and that would be based in Cloverdale, operating on part of the original BC Electric Interurban line.

Demon in a bottle

To the editor, Really, why privatize alcohol-beverage sales? Every cent of profit from all sales of that poison, with a figurative demon in every bottle, should not ever go to personal-monetary-gain share-holders’ pockets; it, morally speaking, should go back into B.C.’s public health-care system. Indeed, it’s high time that our provincial and federal governments exhibited the political will to buy-out the entire alcoholic-beverage and tobacco production industries. Such products should be owned by the people, especially if scores of us – and in particular, our young people – are going to pay for, get seriously ill and die from such products. Why should any private interest profit, and so greatly so, from such addictive vices? And while they’re at it, the governments within Canada should acquire full control over all of our natural resources – to be completely government owned and operated, with all profits and benefits going to all Canadians.

An enemy at the gates Fraser Downs should expand To the editor; Re: “Chamber renews casino plea,” July 12 We can’t have another casino in the Surrey area. If we do, it would diminish our profits and the racing! They don’t just want to make a ‘little’ one, they want a hotel too. I totally agree we should get the money to expand. One new casino could ruin the racing industry and un-employ hundreds of people. I’m thinking it won’t happen, hopefully.

Drying ultraviolet rays of the sun break down fibre in the wood and cause natural oils to evaporate. A cedar roof is a living organism, requiring maintenance in order to get the best value out of it. Cleaning repairs and protection are vital to its life cycle.

TRUSTED - SINCE 1985

After repairs are complete, we wash and treat your roof with a floodcoat of natural oils, which provides UV protection, while still allowing the roof to breathe.

Cloverdale’s Ty Ewan, a member of the Burnaby Mountain Selects Boys U13 elite, was one of 40 players selected to an all-star game at a recent lacrosse camp at the University of Denver. Ewan is a student at George Greenaway Elementary School. Teammate Adams Road Elementary student Taylor Dudlets was also chosen to play for the Boy’s U13 Elite team attending the camp at Denver, Colorado June 20-25. The camp is considered the premier team camp in the Western United States, with hall of fame coach Bill Tierney and the Denver Pioneers Men’s Lacrosse team hosting the event.

By Sheila Reynolds A group assigned to review anti-homophobia policies for Surrey schools held its first meeting last week. The working group was struck following a request to the board of education in June that the Surrey School District establish a standalone antihomophobia policy. Proponents say a targeted policy is necessary because of the prevalence of bullying based on sexual orientation and the fact it’s been linked to increased teen suicide rates. Presenters at the June 21 public school board meeting, including two Surrey high school students, pointed to the homophobic slurs and behaviour that pervades schools, and the damage it causes students and staff. The working group will consist of parents, students, teachers and other school district staff and will initially be led by Supt. Mike McKay. There are no trustees in the group. The board of education voted to convene the group in order to review policy in light of the issues brought forward by speakers at the meeting. The group’s exact mandate has yet to be determined, but it’s expected it will eventually present its findings to the board for trustees to consider. There are 18 B.C. school districts that have established LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, questioning) policies and regulations and several others that are considering them. Most are aimed at instigating systemic change through staff development and education, and measures to improve the understanding of LGBTQ people and their positive contributions to society. Students in Delta requested a similar policy from trustees in that district in April, but have yet to receive a formal response. Surrey currently has blanket anti-discrimination regulations that include anti-homophobic language. – Black Press

Air Conditioning Service... Why Bother? Most vehicle owners never bother to think of their air conditioning until they reach over and turn it to the on position on that really hot summer day.

Q A

You should have your vehicle air conditioning serviced as per the factory recommended schedules or at least once a year. It’s not a good idea to let the AC system in your vehicle sit for long periods of time. In most cases you should be using it all year long. The AC system runs on R134A or newer style refrigerants and together with refrigerant oils they work together at lubricating working parts within the system. When the AC sits unused for long periods of time you have the potential to develop leaks, have the system dry out and become inoperable.

How can you qualify for the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit? Generally, the CFTC allows parents to claim up to $500 for fees that relate to the cost of registering their child in an eligible program of physical activity. The maximum claim will result in a tax savings of $75.00 and can be claimed once for each of child up to age 16. There are many programs that qualify, but typically the program must be supervised, ongoing, designed for children, and require a significant amount of physical activity. Some activities that may qualify include hockey, soccer, horse-back riding, swimming, sailing and bowling. Note that fees for transportation and equipment do not qualify. Also there are additional benefits available if your child qualifies for the disability amount. If you plan on making a claim for the CFTC on your personal tax return, ensure that you keep the tax receipt from the organization that provided the program. For additional information on this issue, please contact me at your convenience.

Q

Do dentures last forever?

A

While it’s true that dentures are durable, they aren’t any more permanent than eyeglasses or shoes! Just as the condition of your eyes change, so does the condition of your mouth. Like the soles of our shoes that wear down due to friction, so do the teeth on our dentures! When your dentures become worn and ill fitting, your chewing becomes impaired and your ability to laugh and smile confidently is compromised. Generally, dentures should be relined every 2 years and replacing them at regular intervals of 5 to 7 years makes it possible to maintain a healthy natural smile and prevent intraoral deterioration.

Q A

Are You Thinking of Purchasing a Home Soon? When purchasing a home, you are faced with a multitude of decisions! While at your side each step of the way, the Lunders will make the process of purchasing a home easier, more enjoyable, less time-consuming, and less expensive than if you undertook this challenge on your own. We will help you locate and assess properties for sale that match your specifications, and help you through the myriad of details attending the actual purchase.

Here’s a heads up for Cloverdale residents who live near the Surrey-Langley border. Pile driving work is getting underway at the 196 Street overpass at Landmark Way and Highway 10. The project is one of three new overpasses known as the “combo” projects BA Blacktop is building in Surrey and Langley as part of the Roberts Bank Rail Corridor. Residents who live near the 196 Street construction site may notice sound from the pile-driving activity. BA Blacktop will be monitoring noise and vibration as work proceeds. Work will take place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Saturday. The pile driving work is expected to continue to Sept. 30. Residents with construction-related questions may contact the project office at 604-510-3848. Traffic advisories will be issued regularly when major traffic pattern changes arise. They can be found online at surrey. ca/city-services/9892.aspx. – Cloverdale Reporter

Aldergrove park plan advances

Metro Vancouver will proceed with the development of plans to enhance Aldergrove Regional Park in southeast Langley. At least that’s what the region is calling the former Aldergrove Lake Regional Park for now, pending a final decision on a new name. The lake reference is being dropped since the regional parks department drained the popular swimming hole in 2011 to comply with more stringent public health regulations. Metro staff say they’re considering various trail and facility upgrades, providing more routes for pedestrians, cyclists and equestrians. An open house is expected in late September and a draft management plan is to come back to the Metro board for approval this winter. Staff envision an expanded dog off-leash area, creation of a new wetland area for wildlife viewing and an active farm program. Youth activities at Aldergrove Bowl could include disc golf, tobogganing and adventure play. A water play area is also under consideration, but not the reopening of a destination swimming area, as desired by many residents. It’s not yet clear where money will come for any actual upgrades of the park that do make it into a final plan. A Metro report cautioned that proceeding with the management plan would “likely result in some public expectation of capital investment to implement the plan.”
