classrooms will be available, it’s also expected more portables will be needed. In all, there will be about 70,207 students filing into Surrey schools next week, up from 69,745 students at this time last year. That growth is almost all in elementary schools. The number of secondary students this year has dropped by 169, while the number in kindergarten to Grade 7 is ballooning by 629. To help accommodate that population, an expansion of Newton’s T.E. Scott Elementary will be opening later this fall, providing eight new classrooms. A new Hazelgrove Annex re-opened last year with four classrooms and will have eight available this year. All of those classroom spaces will be for kindergarten students. Roughly half of the new school additions from last year will be used for kindergarten as the province moved to an all-day kindergarten program last fall. For secondary students, some schools, including Sullivan Heights and North Surrey Secondary are moving to a flex schedule. The flex schedule increases a school’s capacity by about 10 per cent by adding an extra block of time. It was deemed in a recent report to be the most preferable of three options to accommodate Surrey’s growing number of students. Lord Tweedsmuir and Earl Marriott adopted a flexible schedule last fall to help combat overcrowding issues at those high schools. The district will also be forced to use a few more portables this year than last, bringing the total student-occupied portables to 260 to 265 (others are used for storage or administrative purposes). In Delta, the projected enrolment continues to drop, just as it for the past several years. About 15,440 students are expected, down slightly from 15,560 students last year. The district isn’t expecting any school closures as a result of the drop in enrolment.

in the system. “There is a general sense of frustration and anxiety that there is not enough money,” the report said. Cowper found even simple criminal cases continue to take too long to get to trial despite a sharp drop in the criminal backlog over the last two years, largely due to the province’s shift to punishing impaired drivers with roadside penalties rather than prosecution in court. In B.C. Supreme Court, the time to reach Geoffrey trial and the length of trials is rising in part Cowper because of a struggle to manage highly

Federal court rules against bog society Judgment quashes lawsuit over South Fraser Perimeter Road’s affect on wetlands by Adrian MacNair

A SUMMARY JUDGMENT against the Burns Bog Conservation Society (BBCS) has scuttled a lawsuit against the federal government over the South Fraser Perimeter Road’s (SFPR) impact on protected wetlands. In presenting a compelling reason to go to trial, “the Plaintiff relies heavily upon assertion but brings little to Court by way of evidence and authority,” wrote Federal Court Justice James Russell in his summary. He wrote further that the statement of claim relied heavily upon the affidavit from BBCS president Eliza Olson who, while providing the court an understanding of the society’s concerns, “provides no evidence of relevance for the issue before me in this motion.” Russell ruled that Canada has no obligation to protect the bog because it does not own any part of it, and is not contractually obligated. “The government has washed its hands of the bog,” said Olson Friday, adding the ruling places the environmental onus on the municipality, Metro Vancouver, and the province. Olson said the ruling was confusing because when the issue was brought up in council meetings, Mayor Lois Jackson reportedly said it was a federal responsibility. “If you look at the hierarchy, the feds are at the top,” said Olson. The BBCS will now have its lawyer look at the ruling and decide whether to pursue other legal remedies. Burns Bog, located just east of Hwy. 91 between Nordel Way and Ladner Trunk Road, is one of the largest raised peat bogs in the Eliza Olson world. The Corporation of Delta, the Greater Vancouver Regional District, and the province purchased six parcels of the bog for conservation purposes in 2004. The federal government chipped in $28 million in March of that year, although it did not take ownership of any part of the bog. The BBSC launched a lawsuit against the feds in November of 2010, claiming the new SPFR broke an agreement with respect to protecting the sensitive wetlands. The government, however, argued it had no duty to protect Burns Bog, denying the existence of any contract binding them. It was further pointed out that environmental assessments had been completed on the SFPR, and they found no adverse effects were likely to occur to the bog. The SFPR will not pass through the bog, though a small stretch will run adjacent to the wetlands. Olson said it’s not within the mandate of the BBSC to advocate where the SFPR would have been better located, suggesting the Corporation of Delta should have spoke up about that. The lawsuit did not name the Corporation of Delta, the province, or the GVRD, who are signatory to the Burns Bog Management Agreement.

“The government has washed its hands of the bog.”

Courts: More than 100 cases stayed due to delays From page 1 complex, large cases. He proposes a Criminal Justice and Public Safety Council to transparently oversee the coordination of the legal system to try to make it more efficient. It would also track the court backlog and recommend to the Justice Minister how much money and staff the system needs. Cowper recommended five new judges be immediately added to boost capacity, but said the Provincial Court’s call for 18 more judges to help reduce the case backlog is not justified. More than 100 cases were stayed last year because of excessive delays in getting to trial, violating the rights of the accused, and the number of cases older than 18 months in the provincial court system topped 2,500 before starting to decline. Several judges have criticized the lack of court resources in rulings throwing out long-delayed cases. Cowper declined to make a recommendation on whether overall funding for the criminal justice system is sufficient. Costs have climbed, Cowper found, but mainly to fund salary and benefit increases – not more court capacity.

Much can be done through more efficient use of existing resources, he suggested. While longer delays have compounded the problems, speeding up the time to trial would help on multiple fronts. Defence would have to be ready to sooner respond to charges – perhaps opening up more plea bargains that avoid the need for trial. Accused criminals wouldn’t be held in custody as long, so the consequences of denying them bail wouldn’t be as severe. And the very high volume of charges being laid for breaching bail conditions would be sharply cut. Leonard Krog Cowper also recommends more spending on legal aid, financed through a tariff. Also proposed is sending trials initially to an assignment court rather than to individual judges so cases can be handled more efficiently. Proactive policing has already been a major success but Cowper said more crime reduction gains are possible and a province-wide strategy is needed.

“Police are tired of acting as mental health or social workers.”

He endorsed earlier findings rejecting the idea of letting police officers lay criminal charges directly, rather than Crown counsel. The wheels of justice have spun more slowly in B.C. despite a steadily falling crime rate and fewer criminal cases entering the system. Justice Minister Shirley Bond said the province will study the findings before responding in a white paper this fall outlining planned changes. NDP critic Leonard Krog said Cowper’s council idea is worth pursuing, as well as a move to more permanent judges, rather than part-timers. He said the government’s failure to maintain a functioning justice system continues to let the guilty walk free and leaves the efforts of police, prosecutors and court staff “utterly wasted.” Krog noted a deluge of new criminal cases is heading for provincial jails when the federal government begins imposing new mandatory minimum sentences. More must be done to divert chronic offenders with addictions and mental illness out of court and into treatment, he added. “It’s going to be costly but it has to be available and that is going to be part of the longer term solution,” Krog said. “Police are tired of acting as mental health or social workers.” Cowper looked only at criminal justice, not the civil courts, Krog noted, adding delays in hearing a child custody applications can disrupt years of a young childhood.

Abbott, Les and McNeil not running in 2012 election by Tom Fletcher

SHUSWAP MLA George Abbott has confirmed he is following his fellow B.C. Liberal leadership contender Kevin Falcon into political retirement. Chilliwack MLA John Les also announced last Thursday that he will not run in the 2013 election, and Children and Family Development Minister Mary McNeil released a statement saying she has made the same decision. Falcon, the three-term MLA for Surrey-Cloverdale, resigned as finance minister Wednesday. Premier Christy George Abbott Clark said all MLAs have been asked to declare their intentions by the end of the summer, and she will unveil a cabinet shuffle next week. Abbott said he expects to be dropped from cabinet as the B.C. Liberal election team is assembled, but he plans to continue to work on the election platform as he serves out his fourth term as MLA. With a total of 33 years in elected office at the local and provincial level, and at age 59, Abbott said he will not be making any comebacks in the future. Abbott served as health and aboriginal relations minister and is currently John Les education minister. McNeil, elected MLA for Vancouver-False Creek in 2009, was appointed to the children’s ministry by Clark last year. Les issued a statement from his constituency office, saying it was a difficult decision to leave a political career that started as a Chilliwack councillor in 1983 and four terms as a B.C. Liberal MLA. A former public safety minister, Les has most recently served as parliamentary secretary to the premier. “I trust I have been able to represent the people of Chilliwack well and hope they will forgive any shortcomings on my part,” Les said. Mary McNeil Falcon, Les and McNeil have all

confirmed they will serve out their current terms until the election set for May 2013. Premier Christy Clark issued a statement praising all three retiring MLAs. Commenting on Falcon’s decision Wednesday, Clark downplayed the departures and said the turnover offers a chance for renewal. NDP leader Adrian Dix contrasted the departure of former leadership candidates Abbott and Falcon with his team, where his leadership rivals Mike Farnworth and John Horgan are staying on along with former leader Carole James. Dix agreed with Abbott’s assessment that Clark is a great campaigner, but added that doesn’t change the fact that the main government initiative since the 2009 election is the rejected harmonized sales tax. “What B.C. needs is a better government, not a better campaigner,” Dix said. Other B.C. Liberals who have announced they are not running again include Kamloops-South Thompson MLA Kevin Krueger, Burnaby-Lougheed MLA Harry Bloy, Vancouver-Fairview MLA Kash Heed, Surrey-Tynehead MLA Dave Hayer, Saanich North MLA Murray Coell and Penticton MLA Bill Barisoff. Former cabinet ministers Barry Penner and Iain Black resigned their seats last year and have been replaced by NDP MLAs in a pair of by-elections. Abbotsford South MLA John van Dongen quit the B.C. Liberal Party in March and joined the B.C. Conservatives. NDP MLAs Dawn Black (New Westminster) and Mike Sather (Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows) have announced they are retiring next year, and Dix said there may be more.

A year of calm in the classroom?



fter a 2011-2012 school year fraught with tension and concern, the coming one will be a blessing to many. Thousands of Surrey and Delta students will be heading back to school this week, some to new classrooms, some to schools with new principals and new teachers. Many in Surrey, unfortunately, will also spend a lot of time in a portable classroom. The number of new students entering Surrey public schools this week is nearly 630 – a number that will rise as the year proceeds. While a school addition or two will be ready for students this year, no new schools are opening. Years of capital funding delays – until last year Surrey hadn’t received money for new school space since 2005 – will leave thousands of kids and teens learning in portables again this year. And on top of Surrey’s unique concerns, the provincewide political unrest of last year lingers. The current public school teachers’ collective agreement is due to expire in less than a year, and some old issues will inevitably continue to plague the education system. The BC Teachers’ Federation said it only signed the deal under the threat of legislation and there is a concern some teachers will be returning to the classroom bitter and demoralized. It’s possible some will even continue to refrain from doing volunteer duties while others may simply jump back into school activities with enthusiasm. Let’s hope a year of relative calm will provide new optimism and a sense of purpose as the school year begins — for teachers as well as students.

was as surprised as anyone to hear about the plan by this newspaper’s owner, David Black, to begin regulatory work on an oil refinery for Kitimat. I’ll leave it to others to comment on the practicality of that plan, and whether it would make the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline project more acceptable to B.C.’s government and population. Black Press news coverage, columns, letters to the editor and other reader comments are not affected by this project, and there has been a range of views expressed already. Whatever the merits of the refinery idea, it has advanced the debate over pipelines and the place of oil in our society. And that’s a good thing, because as someone with a basic knowledge of chemistry and some experience in oil refining, I have noticed a lot of ignorance about the subject. Today I’d like to address some of the main misconceptions, which have been exploited by some opponents. The first one is oil pollution in general and how it gets into the environment.

Victoria climate scientist Andrew Weaver has calculated. Two U.S. environmental groups, including the one fronted by Redford, have lately been promoting a study that suggests oil sands crude is more corrosive to pipelines. False, says the industry, showing analysis of pipes that have carried diluted bitumen for decades. The Trans-Mountain pipeline has been carrying crude from Alberta to Burnaby and Washington state for more than 60 years. It has periodically carried heavy crude for 40 years, and diluted bitumen for 25 years. Some of that crude is refined in Washington and the gasoline and diesel barged up to supply B.C. gas stations. And of course Vancouver Island, Haida Gwaii and all other B.C. islands depend on marine fuel shipments. And let’s not forget the most common heavy oil used in B.C. It’s called asphalt.

Pride in Nickel and dimed to death in B.C. putting family first Falcon’s departure no big surprise AMEN TO J.R. MCLEOD’S LETTER (“We need bet-

ter planning and a little mercy,” Aug. 28) regarding the imposed tolling on the Port Mann bridge that will begin late this fall. We live in Cloverdale, but my husband’s work truck (per company mandate) is parked in Coquitlam each night. We tried looking for housing in the tri-cities area, but either we couldn’t afford it or what we saw was a dump. We are a one income family. We make ends

I COMPLETELY understand Kristine Salzmann’s conflicting feelings as a stay-at-home mom (Leader opinion, Aug. 30). Having chosen to stay at home and raise my four children, I have some experience in the stay-athome mom department. I have a university education, have travelled extensively, and am multi-lingual. And yet, when my oldest son was born I couldn’t get myself to hand him over to strangers to be raised – no matter how well educated the people were. I have never regretted my decision. Kristine says that any woman can be a mother but I would suggest that any woman can give birth. Being a mother is a different thing. I can always be replaced at a job, no matter how far up the ladder I get. But I can never be replaced as the mother of my children. They are so vulnerable and impressionable when they are little. My children always came first, although over the years I have been active politically, have been a sought-after speaker, ran a business with my husband and extensively volunteered in my community. At parties I would respond in a way that would either continue the conversation or stop it in its track: what do you do? I am a stay-at-home mom. That usually got me off the hook talking to that person. If I felt like talking, I shared about my political activism or my business. Kristine states that only four per cent of Fortune 500 CEOs are females. Well, just like she and I did, we put our family first. It’s not that we couldn’t – it’s that we made a different choice. The first four years in a child’s live are absolutely crucial. I congratulate Kristine for recognizing that her presence in her daughter’s life is important. You won’t regret it, Kristine.

Sure, I could go get another job in addition to raising my kids, but after childcare, gas, work clothes, etc., I’d probably make enough to pay the tolls. I’ve been in B.C. for a little over three years and I am appalled at the nickel and diming to death that B.C. does to it’s residents. Fees here and pay parking there. The amount of

taxes we pay is unreal. Now we will be penalized for living on the wrong side of the river? It seems every month someone has their hand out looking for more of my husband’s very hard earned money. It’s completely frustrating. Come on politicians, do what you always say you will do when elected, help the little guy.

NO ONE SHOULD be surprised to

hear Kevin Falcon has joined the ongoing parade of disgruntled Liberal MLAs jumping off Christy Clark’s rickety bandwagon. Premier Clark must now stumble about in her inimitable fashion and find a new Finance Minister and Deputy Premier. I wonder what smiley-face unbelievable spin Clark will try putting on his departure? Without a credible leader who has the respect of her/his peers and the personality to inspire and motivate the political grassroots, little can be accomplished in rebuilding the dysfunctional BC Liberal party. If the Liberal powerbrokers were working on a backroom deal to rid themselves of Christy Clark, Falcon wouldn’t have flown the coop. Unfortunately for dyed-in-thewool Liberal supporters, it looks like Christy Clark is either too dumb or too stubborn to face facts. Lloyd Atkins Vernon

As Finance Minister, Falcon can be particularly proud of the fact that B.C. has been able to maintain its Triple AAA credit rating at a time when so many other provinces, states and countries have seen their credit ratings downgraded. This is no small accomplishment and it’s a testa-

It was also very admirable of Falcon, in stepping away from politics, to acknowledge the hard work, dedication and service of all who are involved in the public life of this province, from all political parties in the BC legislature, but especially the Premier.

advertising). We recently asked the ASC to review again the ads in question. The ASC concluded that the ads did not contravene the ASC or the Canadian Radio-Television Commission codes. We also reviewed our own policy on liquor advertising and confirmed that, so long as the ads meet the current measures, standards and limitations by which advertising is judged, we may not refuse them.

I’M STRUCK BY the contrast between two recently published

local stories. Emmanuel Alviar “pushes the side of a car and throws a piece of wood at a window” during the Stanley Cup riot. He turns himself in and gets a month in jail. Monty Robinson kills a person while driving drunk. He is convicted of obstructing justice by foiling the police investigation and gets ... a conditional sentence. I don’t mean to excuse Mr. Alviar’s behaviour. I’m saying there is no excuse for the behaviour of Robinson’s judge, Justice Janice Dillon. To me, she had the poorest judgement of the three.

Sentencing hearing for child porn possession Lawyers trying to determine what exactly Douglas Bowers pleaded guilty to by Tracy Holmes

TEN PRINTED photographs and eight pages of child sexual-abuse stories were among items police seized three years ago from the home of Douglas Wayne Bowers, Surrey Provincial Court Judge Michael Hicks heard

Thursday. Hicks is presiding over a sentencing hearing for Bowers, a South Surrey man who has pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography. Following his initial guilty plea in December 2010, Bowers had told Peace Arch News

he knew there was illegal material on his computer, but that it had been inadvertently downloaded while he was visiting adultpornography websites. (The proceedings stalled last fall, when Bowers disputed findings in an expert’s report, and again earlier

this year, when Bowers applied to withdraw his guilty plea. He then withdrew that application about five weeks later and the process leading to last week’s hearing began anew.) During a break in proceedings Thursday, defence lawyer Robert Doran explained that

the details of what Bowers has pleaded guilty to are the reason for the sentencing hearing. “There’s a disagreement on particulars regarding what he’s pleading guilty to,” Doran said. During testimony, Const. Virginie Achtymichuk, a former mem-

The investigation ultimately spanned B.C., California, Mexico and Peru. “We took a significant amount of drugs off the streets during this investigation,� said Sgt. Ghalib Bhayani, spokesperson for the B.C.’s Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit. “The cocaine alone represents a street value (per gram) of over $17 million.� The charges come four years after officers first conducted a raid in Princeton that netted 117,000 ecstasy pills. Subsequent raids in late 2008 uncovered 97 kilograms of cocaine hidden in a truck carrying

Police also searched homes in Burnaby, Surrey, Langley, Abbotsford, Chilliwack and Lake Country in 2009, finding various prohibited handguns. Charges of conspiracy to traffic and import cocaine and illegal firearm possession have been laid against both 38-year-old Langley resident Jeremy Albert Stark and Khamla Wong, a 42-year-old former Abbotsford resident who is presently at large and wanted by police. Burnaby resident Christopher Lloyd Mehan, 40, is charged with conspiracy to import 97 kilograms of cocaine. Surrey resident Robert Charles Arthur, 32, is charged with cocaine possession for the purpose of trafficking and is currently out on bail. Matthew James Higgins, 28, of Powell River also is charged with conspiracy to traffick in ecstasy, as is 50-year-old Vancouver resident Hernan Osvaldo Veloso.

Back to school is a time to play it extra safe Delta Police provide drivers and pedestrians with safety tips on the road and crosswalks Black Press

THE DELTA Police Department is reminding drivers and pedestrians to play it safe as schools go back into session this week. To help with that the DPD is initiating its Walk Ride Drive Back to School Traffic Safety Plan. The focus is on education and creating road safety awareness to influence change, with the ultimate goal of making our roads safer for everyone, states a DPD media release. Delta Police will be utilizing resources across its organization including Community Police Stations (and their volunteers), Patrol, Traffic and School Liaison Officers. There will be concentrated efforts on road safety issues throughout Delta and all school zones will be primary target areas. The Delta Police are encouraging the motoring public, pedestrians and cyclists to employ safety measures to reduce the potential of injury on local roadways. Some of the safety tips for pedestrians include: • When crossing the road do so in a marked crosswalk and follow the direction of school

crossing guards. • Make direct eye contact with the driver to ensure you have been seen prior to stepping into the crosswalk • Check all lanes of traffic before proceeding through the crosswalk to ensure it is safe to cross all lanes. • Wear light colored clothing and/or reflective clothing Motorcyclists are advised to: • Wear helmets • Wear reflective clothing, and gear • Remember, motorcycles/ bicycles are hard to see. Motorists are reminded to: • Slow down; be aware of your surroundings. • Avoid distractions while the vehicle is in motion. • Buckle up • Ensure all children are in their proper child safety seat. • Allow yourself sufficient travel time to reach your destination safely. For those picking up and dropping off students, remember to follow school identified drop off and pick up procedures at your respective schools.

Give kids a healthy start PACIFIC BLUE Cross is

providing tips to help give kids a healthy start at school this year: • Pack healthy lunches: Parents strive to give their children the nutrition they need. To ensure your kids actually eat it, rather than trashing or trading it, here’s some steps to make it appealing: - Keep it petite: Little people enjoy little portions so they can snack through the day. - Add fun with finger foods: Experiment with nutritious dips and spreads for veggies and crackers. - Consult your kid: There is no better way to ensure they eat their lunch than by getting their buy-in. • Start a ‘walking’ school bus: More than half of Canadian children aren’t as active as they need to be to ensure healthy development. Walking is a great way to promote physical activity in kids. To make it fun, start a walking group supervised by an adult that collects neighbourhood students at prearranged stops and times. • Look for head lice: When kids are clustered together in classrooms, it’s a prime time for parasites to go body hopping.

• Anticipate backto-school stress. There are many sources, including adjusting to new teachers and

classmates. Sometimes stress has a more serious cause, such as bullying or a schoolrelated phobia. Look

out for signs of stress such as clinginess, crying, irritability, sudden bedwetting or sleep disturbances.

Kittens with mom

Capture of cat leads to happy reunion with abandoned young by Jeff Nagel SIX ABANDONED newborn kittens

have been reunited with their mother after BC SPCA workers trapped the cat near where its babies had been found. Animal cruelty investigators are still trying to figure out who abandoned the kittens inside a cooler in

north Surrey. The kittens were dehydrated, hot to the touch and appeared lifeless last Monday when a woman spotted the open cooler bearing a “free kittens” sign on a sidewalk near Whalley Boulevard and 108A Avenue. The kittens were only a few days old, with some umbilical cords still attached and eyes not yet open –

considered almost certain to die had they not been found fast. BC SPCA spokesperson Lorie Chortyk said the capture of the mother cat is good news. “It makes their survival so much easier and mom and babies were thrilled to be reunited,” she said. After a stint in veterinary care, the feline family will be placed into

SPCA foster homes for around-theclock care. Chortyk hopes someone can identify the distinctive cooler, which bears a “Koolatron” label that someone might recognize. Anyone with information regarding the case is asked to please call the BC SPCA Investigations Department at 604-647-1318.

Neck Injury Awarded $27,500 A BC Supreme Court judge recently awarded $27,500 to Mr. Gonzalez for injuries caused by a car accident that limited his ability to play soccer and tennis for about six months. Mr. Gonzalez was stopped in traffic when his car was hit from behind. ICBC’s lawyer argued the collision was minor. The lawyer argue this is what ICBC calls a low velocity impact. The lawyer told the Judge that Mr. Gonzalez was not injured. Immediately after the accident Mr. Gonzales described himself as “okay” but he started to feel pain in his neck and back nearly 30 minutes after the accident. His neck injury, as well as headaches, caused him to miss two day of work. The ICBC lawyer told the judge Mr. Gonzalez should get nothing. He argued that if the judge believed there was an injury, then $4,000 to $5,000 was enough money to compensate for the injuries. The Judge rejected this argument and awarded $27,500 - about six times what ICBC said was reasonable. ICBC also pointed a finger at Mr. Gonzalez saying he caused his own problems by only attending 5 of the 12 recommended physiotherapy appointments. The lawyer wanted the Judge to reduce the award because of this. The judge rejected this argument because no doctor said that more physiotherapy would have made a difference to Mr. Gonzalez’ injuries. What does this mean to someone you know that has been in a low velocity accident with injuries lasting several months. Every case is different but you might want to think twice when looking at what your ICBC adjuster offers. –Greg Smith

Keeping Your Kids



GETTING A HEAD START before school

Diabetic Socks, Meter,

starts is always the right way to go. Here are some ways to make sure your children are ready for their studies: Reading with your children will teach them to be observant and to develop their vocabulary and general knowledge. But can they see properly? Can they distinguish details, contrasts, and colours? An optometrist will be able to answer all these questions. Perhaps your son seems to daydream all the time or is easily distracted by ambient noises. Or maybe your daughter has difficulty in distinguishing between different sounds when you talk to her. If your children give you the impression that they don’t want to listen or are unmotivated, it may be because they have difficulty hearing. An audiologist will be able to identify any problems. Fall is a good time for your children to have a complete oral checkup at the dentist’s. You can also ask for advice adapted to their needs, concerning both oral hygiene and diet. With healthy teeth they’ll discover the power of a beautiful smile. Research has proven that good posture will prevent children from becoming overtired and will help to improve academic results. A visit to a chiropractor will not only result in some sound advice but also some valuable preventive measures. A child’s growing period is crucial in his or her development. An annual visit to your children’s healthcare specialists before school begins in the fall will allow you to benefit from some valuable advice. It will also be an opportunity to detect any incipient problems.

THE LANGLEY Thunder will get

another crack at the Mann Cup. The senior A team captured its second consecutive Western Lacrosse Association banner last Wednesday night, defeating the Coquitlam Adanacs 9-5 in game six of the best-of-theseven championship series. The game was played at Coquitlam’s Poirier Sports Complex. The top-seed Thunder won the series 4-2 over the third-seed Adanacs. After the teams traded goals in the opening period – Brett Hickey for the Thunder and Mark Negrin for the Adanacs – Langley took control in the middle stanza. Coquitlam led 3-2 with eight minutes gone in the second – Shayne Jackson made it 2-1

Thunder before Ben McIntosh and Negrin gave the home side their only lead of the night – but Langley exploded for four goals in 4:16, with Jackson, Alex Turner, Brett Hickey and Lewis Ratcliff all finding the back of the net. Ryan Johnson scored late in the period to make it 6-4, but that was as close as the Adanacs would come. Ratcliff added his second of the night with five minutes to go. Daryl Veltman did pull Coquitlam back to within a pair with 2:40 remaining, but Sam Cook and Todd Stockdale struck for empty-net goals in the last minute of play. Ratcliff was named the game’s first star with a fivepoint night (two goals, three assists) while Shayne Jackson

was the second star with two goals and one assist. Coquitlam’s Nick Rose was the third star, making 37 saves as the Adanacs were heavily out-shot 47-30. Brodie MacDonald made 25 saves in the Thunder goal. Three members of the Thunder have connections. Ian Poole and team captain Matt Leveque are from Surrey. Leveque and Kerry Susheski played their Junior A lacrosse with the Surrey-based South Fraser Stickmen. The Thunder, who lost the 2011 Mann Cup in five games to the Brampton Excelsiors at the Langley Events Centre, travel to Ontario to play the Peterborough Lakers in the best-of-seven Canadian senior A lacrosse championship series.

Curling club celebrates 40 years

The Thistle Curling Club in North Delta will celebrate its 40th season with an opening ceremony Friday, Sept. 14. Dignitaries and members of the Friday Night League will follow the bagpipes onto the ice at 6:45 p.m. A ceremonial first rock will be followed by the cutting of a cake, and the first night of curling at 7 p.m.

Juniors on TV

The Tim Hortons BC Junior Curling Championships will be televised for the first time ever.

Shaw Cable TV will film and broadcast the event, which is taking place at the Coquitlam Curling Center from Jan. 1-6, 2013. Shaw has previously televised the Scotties BC Women’s Curling Championship and the Canadian Direct Insurance BC Men’s Curling Championship, but it has never televised the Junior finals, which showcase the province’s best curlers aged 21 and under. “It’s fantastic that we have the chance to showcase our facility on TV,� said Barry Ayers, chair of the Tim Hortons BC Junior Curling. “We hope that these young curlers will inspire yet another generation to get involved in the sport.� “We’re looking forward to this great promotion of our best young curlers on television,� said Curl BC CEO Scott Braley. The Coquitlam Curling Center is a six-sheet facility that was rebuilt in 2009. The center has

hosted past events such as the 2007 Senior and 2011 Master regional playdowns.
