EDITION

ONE OF the men charged in the murder of SFU Surrey student Maple Batalia – Gurjinder (Gary) Dhaliwal –will be pleading not guilty, his lawyer said. On Monday morning, Dhaliwal and the second man charged in the case – Gursimar Singh Bedi – appeared in Surrey Provincial Court. On Sept. 28, 2011, 19-year-old Batalia was gunned down on the third floor of the Central City parkade, beside Simon Fraser University, following a late-night study session. She had been studying with friends and had left for the parkade just before 1 a.m., when she was shot multiple times in what police believe was a targeted attack. She died later in hospital. At a news conference Saturday night, police announced that Maple’s ex-boyfriend, Dhaliwal, 20, and his “associate,” 22-year-old Bedi, had been charged in her murder. Dhaliwal has been charged with first-degree murder, Gurjinder while Bedi has been charged with manslaughter with a Dhaliwal in firearm and accessory after the fact. 2009. Dhaliwal’s lawyer David Albert reminded those gathered outside the Surrey courthouse Monday that his client is innocent until proven guilty. Dhaliwal, with spiky hair and a beard, sat in the prisoner’s box with his arms crossed, glancing periodically to look at the audience. Bedi appeared in court by video link.

Guilty in death of senior Grandfather struck while waiting at Surrey bus stop

by Sheila Reynolds A SURREY man who struck and killed an 83-year-old

grandfather who was waiting at a bus stop three years ago has been found guilty. Gurjit Dhillon, 28, was facing a charge of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death. (A street racing charge was dropped in late August due to unreliable witness testimony.) Pritam Benning, 83, was grievously injured in the 2009 rush hour crash at the busy intersection of 128 Street and 72 Avenue. He died five days later without

gaining consciousness long enough for family to speak with him. On Friday in Surrey Provincial Court, Judge James Jardine found that Dhillon’s driving was “obviously dangerous” that day and that he drove with “intentional risk” that caused his car to lose control, spin through the intersection and strike the bench where Benning was waiting. Jardine said the entire incident, which ended with “horrific consequences,” happened in a matter of seconds. The judge found that Dhillon, driving his See SON / Page 3

Son: ‘My dad was blameless’

Paws for Claus Charlie, a three-yearold GoldenNewfie, waits for the Surrey Santa Parade of Lights to begin in Downtown Cloverdale on Sunday evening with his family, including Meredith Waite (left), her daughter Grace, 15, and Chihuahua Castle, 1 (at right).

From page 1 brother’s black Corvette, had been following a yellow Corvette at about 6 p.m. on Sept. 17, 2009. The two cars came to a stop at the intersection and when the light turned green, Dhillon accelerated abruptly, attempted to change lanes and hit another car before spinning out of control. His car then mounted the curb and launched toward Benning. Benning’s son Manjit was relieved at the guilty verdict, but acknowledged nothing will bring his father back. “My dad is gone, but we wanted consequences in this case. “My dad was blameless. He was sitting at a bus stop,” he added. “Dhillon was driving in a reckless fashion. If anyone should have passed away, it should have been him.” Dhillon did not take the stand in his own defence during the trial, and did not comment Friday when he exited court following the verdict. During the trial, a 911 Pritam Benning recording was played where he was heard telling the operator “I hit a person. I need an ambulance quick. Something happened to my car. It just went out of control.” The defence had argued that the brake system in Dhillon’s car was faulty – a theory Judge Jardine refuted. “This vehicle went out of control before the brakes were applied,” said Jardine in his ruling. The maximum sentence for Dhillon’s crime is 14 years, but the range applied is generally much lower. In August, Dhillon’s wife told CTV news that her husband carried great grief over the crash and has a tattoo on his forearm of Benning’s name.

Surrey mayor fights for Port Mann express bus stop Use money earmarked for Newton exchange upgrade, Dianne Watts tells TransLink by Kevin Diakiw Surrey reSiDeNtS may yet get the chance to board an express bus over the

Port Mann Bridge – if Mayor Dianne Watts has her way. Several years ago, TransLink, the city and private developers hatched a plan that would include commercial and residential development as part of a bus exchange at 156 Street near Highway 1. That development never came to fruition, so plans for a transit exchange never left the conceptual stage. As a result, there will be no access to an express bus heading over the new Port Mann Bridge from Surrey – the closest stop will be in Langley at 86 Avenue, just off 200 Street. Watts said Tuesday news that the stop had been axed came amid Surrey’s negotiations to get it back on the drawing board. The Leader first reported last week that the Surrey express stop is not on TransLink’s list of priority projects. Now, Watts is proposing that about $1 million in TransLink-planned upgrades to the Newton Exchange be dropped, and the funding for that be

used instead for the Surrey express stop. “Take the upgrades (planned) for the Newton Exchange, which numberone we don’t want, and two we’re moving (the bus loop) anyway,” Watts said Tuesday. “And we’re going to have more of those conversations as we go to TransLink.” TransLink, which has been scrambling for funding over the past several years, was unable to say by The Leader’s press time whether Watts’ idea is viable. Premier Christy Clark rejected area mayors’ call for a vehicle levy to avoid the $30 million that would be generated from an annual property tax hike of $23 per household. Municipalities have been relectant to raise property taxes. Vehicle levies, a share of carbon tax, and road pricing are back for discussion. However, observers believe it’s unlikely Victoria will introduce those prior to next year’s provincial election. A provincial audit released in October recommended several areas of cost savings, including cutting frequency of SkyTrain service during non-peak times.

Family: ‘We’re just hoping Maple will finally be at peace’ From page 1

Maple Batalia

Both men appeared calm throughout the morning session. The Batalia family was granted a no-contact order for both men. On Saturday, the Batalia family expressed relief at the announcement of the arrests and charges. “Although we can’t bring Maple back, we’re happy to see that those (allegedly) responsible for this are now going to suffer the consequences,” said Maple’s sister Roseleen, who spoke on behalf of the family. “We’re just hoping Maple will finally be at peace.” Batalia, an aspiring actress and model who was a finalist in the 2011

Central City Model Search, was planning to go to medical school. At a candlelight vigil in Holland Park two days after her murder, Batalia’s parents were overcome with grief. “This wonderful child, a jewel of mine, has been snatched away forever,” said Maple’s father Harkirat Batalia, who called his daughter his little Tweetie Bird. “My charming little sweet child, I’ll miss you. May God take you in heaven and keep you there... and please God help me in this moment.” Batalia’s mother expressed similar depth of despair earlier in the day. “My life is finished,” Sarabjit Batalia told The Leader. “What is my life without her? She was the star in our

life and our whole family.” In December of last year, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) seized a white 2011 Dodge Charger that was seen leaving the scene of the murder. IHIT has had more than 50 officers working on the case. On Friday night, police arrested Dhaliwal in Burnaby and Bedi in Surrey. Details of the arrest and investigation were scant Saturday night in order to protect the integrity of the upcoming trial. Dhaliwal and Bedi are expected to appear again in Surrey Provincial Court by video link on Dec. 17.

project used “quiet pavement” – a different blend of stone and sand with more air pockets – that officials say will reduce traffic noise from the new highway for nearby residents. Once the entire SFPR is complete from Highway 1 to Deltaport by the end of 2013, much of the heavy truck traffic that now uses River Road and other routes in Surrey and Delta is expected to shift onto the new Highway 17. “This new road is a huge benefit to families as it will pull commercial traffic away from community roads, easing congestion and improving travel time and safety,” Transportation Minister Mary Polak said. She said the new expressway for commercial, commuter and tourism traffic will help relieve congestion between the Massey Tunnel and Alex Fraser, Pattullo and Port Mann bridges. Ed Fast, the federal minister for international trade and the AsiaPacific Gateway, said the new highway will help increase Canadian exports to Asia while improving quality of life for local residents. Ottawa contributed $365 million of the perimeter road’s

$1.26-billion cost. Truckers should save time and money and gain improved access to industrial sites along the Fraser River, said B.C. Trucking Association president Louise Yako. It’s also expected to foster more business and industry at sites along the corridor, adding an estimated 7,000 jobs in Surrey and Delta. The project wasn’t without controversy. Freeway expansion opponents repeatedly blockaded sections of the route, which runs over some ancient aboriginal sites. Risks to Burns Bog or other wildlife habitat areas and increased pollution in nearby neighbourhoods were among the concerns raised. Nor will the highway be free of traffic lights – a bone of contention for some critics who say the highway will be slower than first promised as a result. Traffic will have to stop for lights at Bridgeview Drive and 176 Street in Surrey as well as Nordel Way and also Tilbury when the Delta section of the route opens. Project managers say the groundwork is being laid to eventually upgrade those intersections to free flowing interchanges with onand off-ramps.

STREET SAFETY

Minding the roads

RAESIDE

A

quick look outside will tell you we’re tightly in the grip of fall. That means rain. Lots of it. And darkness. Late into the morning and earlier in the afternoon. It’s a dangerous time of year. For motorists, and especially for pedestrians. Statistics from ICBC show almost one-third of pedestrian collisions involving injuries or fatalities occur in November, December and January. The lastest in Surrey involved a 76-year-old man, who was taken to hospital Friday night after being hit by a car while crossing the street. He was left unconcious at the side of the road after the vehicle responsible fled. It was raining heavily at the time. A little common sense would go a long way to reducing these tragedies. For pedestrians, this includes wearing bright clothing, ideally with a reflective strip or two, so motorists can distinguish them through the gloom. Pedestrians must also cross streets using marked, and preferably lit, crosswalks. Motorists peering into the darkness through rain-slicked windshields are already coping with a lot, such s faded and swamped lane markings and the glare from oncoming headlights. The last thing they’re ready for is a dark figure bolting from the shadows across their path. When walking along the shoulder, where there are no sidewalks, pedestrians should face oncoming traffic. That way motorists can at least see their face, and those walking will be able to see what’s coming. Drivers can also do their part to improve safety during these dark, rainy months. They can ensure their windshield wipers are doing their job. They should check that all the lights on the vehicle are working, and that the headlights are aimed properly so they don’t blind oncoming cars or pedestrians. When driving in difficult conditions, motorists should use low beams, as high beams will just reflect the rain or fog, actually making it harder to see. And tire tread needs to be checked. Worn tires will take longer to stop, and are more likely to hydroplane. Most importantly, motorists: Slow down and drive according to the conditions. – Black Press

FINANCE

hatever happens in the provincial election five months from now, taxpayers should insist that it be the last spring vote. Now I know this isn’t sexy like the horse race of popularity polls so loved by the TV news. But integrity of public financial information is the next vital step in democratic reform, even more important than scheduled election dates. And the B.C. tradition of tabling untested election budgets, shutting down the legislature and firing up the campaign buses, has to end. The B.C. Liberals are on track to surpass the NDP on fudge-it budgets, having put millions into TV ads that insist the 2013 budget will struggle into the black. This is the hill Christy Clark has chosen to die on. Glen Clark set the modern bar with his 1996 election budget. After a run of red ink, it conjured a tidy little surplus that helped the NDP squeak out a win over the plaidshirted Gordon Campbell. Campbell’s noisy exit had its roots in

U.S., our only current energy export customer, is developing its own huge shale gas and shale oil reserves. In another forecasted miracle, sales tax revenue is expected to dip by a mere $120 million as the old provincial sales tax returns next year. In 2014 it is projected to bounce right back to where it is today, around $6.1 billion. That’s odd. When former finance minister Kevin Falcon announced the transition back to PST last May, he described annual revenue loss of about $500 million the first year, and more than $600 million the next. Granted, business investment credits and HST rebates to the poor also end, saving the government a pile of cash as this significant tax reform dies. But it still looks like another fudge-it budget, designed to help another premier avoid the political graveyard at the foot of Deficit Hill.

Casino complex a good thing for Surrey ‘Big Rail’

We have had several meetings with BCLC (British Columbia Lottery Corporation) regarding Gateway Casino’s proposed South Surrey casino and entertainment facility and the effects it may have on the Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino. Based on these meetings, the Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce and Cloverdale Business Improvement Association support the proposal and believe the City of Surrey will benefit from another casino operating in the city. According to the information provided by BCLC, Surrey is losing substantial entertainment dollars to neighbouring communities. The added tax revenue and additional benefits from having a $100-million entertainment district in

Surrey are immense. In discussions with BCLC, we were informed that the current contract in regards to the support and subsidy for both Fraser Downs racing operations and Hastings Park racetrack in Vancouver expires in approximately one year. BCLC is currently working on an extension of this agreement for another 10 years – for a total of 11 years. When the agreement is completed, this will provide a more sustainable future for Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino. This information has been verified by the B.C. government and is good news for the Fraser Down’s employees and the Cloverdale District Chamber of Commerce / Cloverdale BIA. In addition, BCLC is also working on creat-

ing a new sports bet marketing program which will be ultimately unveiled at the Fraser Downs facility. The Cloverdale District Chamber of Commerce and Cloverdale BIA support BCLC’s efforts to have two compatible entertainment facilities that can serve different markets, thus creating a stronger Surrey. The complex will provide a unique facility not available anywhere in Surrey, upwards of 500 new jobs.

Huge problems in greenfield developments it Was mentioneD in a news report regarding complaints about trucks on

32 Avenue in South Surrey recently that 32 Avenue’s truck route status was “not (the city’s) call.” But this overlooks the fact that it was precisely that. Transportation demands are shaped by land use. Employment land should be easy to walk, bike, transit, or drive to, and be integrated into the community, but the industrial employment in the Campbell Heights area on the east end of 32 Avenue is none of the aforementioned. It is far from major highways leading to the port, U.S. border, or elsewhere. The fastest link in between, which truckers will prefer because they have demanding schedules to meet, is 32 Avenue. Residential development was somehow conveniently placed on 32 Avenue between Campbell Heights and the highway. This design flaw could have been overlooked through a change in land use plans. Had it been closer to Highway 99, these problems might not exist. However, that would have required a different planning mentality and perhaps a different city council. Regarding who’s at fault for Campbell Heights, you might be surprised. Coun. Marvin Hunt and then-Coun. Dianne Watts motioned and seconded the approval of its local area plan when it went through council in December 2000. It was carried with only Surrey Civic Coalition’s Bob Bose (retired opposition councillor) thoughtfully against. The Surrey First council has since then approved several other greenfield developments such as Clayton Heights and Grandview Heights, and – no surprise – today these areas all have their share of huge problems. Whether this signals that we need to be more careful with our political leadership choices or not, one thing is clear: To prevent more of these issues, we as the citizens of Surrey need to do whatever we can to ensure that our city pursues more sustainable development and planning choices. If that’s going to require a new council, then let’s vote for one in 2014. Daryl Dela Cruz Transportation analyst, Surrey

BOAZ JOSEPH / THE LEADER

a letter-writer says the surrey council should demand better planning before approving development projects.

Same suite rules must apply to everyone DiD you know that if you live in

a strata area like the one along 168 Street between 60  and 64 Avenues, you can have a suite in your condo and not have to pay any extra for, fire, police, hospital, etc.? They set their own rates – one water meter for the whole complex and split the bill. Some of them have suites, which the strata allows as long as they follow the rules.  No thermostat in the basement suite, no key for mailbox. No fire escape door. There are thousands of these suites in Surrey. Why should any

group be allowed to do this when the average homeowner cannot do this?

Surrey’s rules are if the home has a stove and sink in the basement, it is a suite. Not so in a

Lost wallet returned

on nov. 18, I lost my wallet at the Newton Superstore, and believe it or

not, it was returned to me the next day in my mailbox with everything in it – from money to gift cards. I want to thank that special person who brought it back to me. You are absolutely amazing. I never in my wildest dreams expected that back. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It’s so nice to know that there are still honest people living on this Earth. Thank you. T. Harris, Surrey

strata, where it is not considered a suite because it is controlled by the strata council.  The same rules have to apply to everyone. You move your mother into the basement and give her a stove, it’s a suite. There is something wrong with this picture. The person in the strata that rents out a basement suite gets $8,000 to $9,000 a year of rent.  I would love to have all that extra money to live on.   Arnold Eichhorst Surrey

more risky than pipelines

Are environmental activists doing more harm than good in delaying pipeline projects? Products have always found a way to market one way or another. Be careful what you wish for as there is a real factor called “unintended consequences” that emerges every time man tries to tinker with tried and tested methods.  Most people are completely unaware of pipelines running underground because it is a less intrusive method which does not interfere with our daily surface activity.  We bring water to our buildings in underground water main pipes buried deep enough for frost protection. We flush our toilets and underground pipes transport it to sewage treatment. Storm water from our roofs go into underground pipes, then to natural watercourses. Natural gas and electric underground, etc. are all mostly unnoticed. By contrast, surface transportation of product by rail noticeably affects our lives daily. Because of the enviroactivists protesting all new pipelines, shipping oil by rail has become a real and growing alternative. The cost difference is approximately $3 more per barrel, which is a small obstacle with oil selling at around $85. Canadian tanker cars carry approximately 650 barrels each with 100 car trains used to deliver 65,000-plus barrels per day to refiners and other terminals all over North America. Rail operators have reported a 30-per-cent increase in oil by rail in the last year, only curtailed by the shortage of tanker cars.  Trains go over all the same streams and rivers that pipelines go under/over and there is even a greater risk of spill by rail.  So now the agitated anti-oil activists are trying to stop “Oil by Rail,” but it’s too late and they couldn’t anyway because of the over 100year established infrastructure and practice of shipping liquid chemical materials by rail tanker cars.  CN is one of the biggest oil shippers in North America and they are double-tracking to Prince Rupert.  BNSF railroad is shipping 350,000 barrels per day of Bakken and Oil Sands oil, mostly to the Gulf, and wants to increase it to 1 million barrels per day. “Big Rail” and big-money politics has delayed the Keystone XL Pipeline.   Roland Seguin Langley

Judge believes driver’s story of Delta crash

Tuesday, December 4, 2012 Surrey/North Delta Leader 9

Man awarded $13,000 after ICBC version rejected by Sheila Reynolds A B.C. judge has ruled that a young

man’s explanation of an accident in Delta two years ago is more convincing than ICBC’s version of events. Sardar Akbari was 18 and had recently gotten his “N” driver’s licence when he crashed his car into a light standard on Nordel Way near 84 Avenue. While Akbari testified the accident happened because he was avoiding a car that had pulled out in front of him, ICBC argued there was no second vehicle involved, and that Akbari simply lost control, perhaps due to speed or wet road conditions, and hit the pole. ICBC also alleged Akbari failed to make much effort to identify the driver of the car he claimed caused the accident, and was therefore not entitled to damages for his injuries. Akbari said he tried to identify

the driver – who didn’t stop at the accident scene – by not only asking Delta Police if there was an intersection camera but by posting a sign at the scene asking potential witnesses to come forward. A passenger in Akbari’s car, Jose Perez, also corroborated his story that another car cut them off. In a Nov. 23 decision posted online last week, Madam Justice Wendy Baker said it was “more probable than not” that the accident was caused by an unidentified driver who ran a red light and cut off Akbari. “I found the testimony of Mr. Akbari and Mr. Perez about how the accident happened to be credible and persuasive,” said Baker. “I am satisfied that... Mr. Akbari was forced to take evasive action to avoid colliding with the vehicle crossing his path; and that in doing so, his vehicle swerved on the wet roadway, spun out of

control, and collided with the light standard.” She said she didn’t believe Akbari was speeding or that he failed to meet the standards of a prudent driver, and that he had made all reasonable efforts to identify the unknown driver. In addition to cuts and abrasions from broken glass, Akbari suffered soft tissue damage to his left calf, knee and thigh. Akbari was awarded $13,622 – $12,000 for non-pecuniary damages, $1,237 for two weeks of missed work and $385 for medications and physiotherapy. He had asked for $25,000 in compensation. The judge said Akbari had made a full recovery and his capacity to earn future income was not impaired, nor was there any evidence there would be any cost for future care.

Surrey mail carriers robbed Two thefts by a pair of men carrying bear spray by Kevin Diakiw PoliCe Are on the hunt for a pair of men who have

robbed mail carriers in the last week. On Monday, Nov. 26, two men produced a can of bear spray and stole a mail truck from a male driver at 55 Avenue and 148 Street. They drove the vehicle about a mile away and dumped it. “We believe that all the mail was recovered, and so was the vehicle,” said RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet. Then on Tuesday, Nov. 27, two men drove up to a female mail carrier near Antrim Road and 140 Street

in North Surrey, produced a can of bear spray and stole her mail bag. They took a mail scanner and keys to lock boxes. The mail was not taken, but police believe their intent as to steal from the lock boxes. The suspects left in an older silver compact car that was quite dirty. Police say the incidents represent the usual spike of this type of thefts as the Christmas season approaches. “Just be aware as we ramp toward the holiday season and more parcels and letters are being sent through the mail, just be mindful to pick up your mail regularly,” Paquet said. “If you are going to be away, ask Canada Post to handle it or ask someone to pick it up for you.” He also notes cash in the mail is never a good idea.

nearby hospitals, increasing congestion in their ERs. Patients coming to SMH on their own had been redirected to an off-site temporary ER at the nearby Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre, but it closed Monday and patients are now being transferred back to SMH. Also re-opened Monday was the medical imaging department at the hospital, with both CT scans and two X-ray suites now operating. The hospitals’ MRI machine is still being assessed for possible repairs and it’s not yet known how soon it can be used again. Patients needing MRI scans will continue to go to the Jim Pattison outpatient hospital. Repairing flood damage and related costs are estimated to be up to $3 million, although that amount doesn’t include the potential loss of the MRI machine.

Dial-a-dope charges for Surrey pair to stand Couple argue a four-year court delay has violated their rights; a Supreme Court judge disagrees by Monique Tamminga A Supreme Court judge has dismissed a

Surrey couple’s application to have their criminal charges dropped in connection with a large dial-a-dope operation busted in Langley in 2008.  B.C. Supreme Court Justice J. Verhoeven denied an application made by Barrett Jordan, 27, and Kristina Gaudet, 23, for a stay of all proceedings based on their right to a timely trial. The pair, who face trafficking and possession charges from 2008, argued the length of time it has taken for their cases to go to trial is unjust. Their trials are set for January 2013. The total length of the delay from the charges to the end of the scheduled trial date is

just over four years for both. Between March 12, 2008 and Dec. 17, 2008, the Langley RCMP investigated a dial-a-dope operation selling heroin and cocaine in Langley and Surrey. The Crown alleges that Jordan was running the operation. In particular, the Crown alleges that he was responsible for the phone line on which orders were placed, and that he employed others and supplied them with drugs to deliver to the buyers. The Crown contends that between May 6 and Dec. 10, 2008, undercover police officers purchased cocaine on six separate occasions by calling a cellphone number associated with Jordan. On Dec. 17, 2008, the police executed a

search warrant at an apartment on 68 Avenue in Surrey. The Crown contends that the apartment was the residence of Jordan and Gaudet.   Among other things, the police seized 42.3 grams of heroin, 1,463.5 grams of cocaine and crack cocaine, $6,640 in cash, and what is alleged to be a “shift calendar” for the dial-adope line. Jordan and Gaudet were arrested the same day. Court documents indicate the couple had been together for more than four years. On Dec.  24, 2008, the charges against Jordan were expanded, including the contention that he was the controlling figure behind the dial-a-dope operation. In February 2009, 10 people were charged with offences relating to possession and trafficking of cocaine and heroin related

back to the dial-a-dope line. These arrests and charges came at a time when a drug turf war was exploding in Langley, resulting in the drug-related murders in March 2009 of Laura Lamoureux and Marc Bontkes. Both were believed to be ripping off dial-a-dope operations.  Gaudet contends that the court delay has held her back from pursuing a career in accounting. If she has a criminal conviction it would not allow her to go into that career. She also claims the wait has caused anxiety and depression. “The delay is not beyond the limits of constitutional tolerance,” said Verhoeven in his judgement in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster. “I am not persuaded that Ms. Gaudet has established a breach of her rights.”

POLICE BRIEFS

Man shot in North Delta by Kevin Diakiw One mAn has been shot and another beaten in a

robbery at a North Delta jewelry store. Two Indo-Canadian men were leaving the store in the 9300 block of Scott Road on Tuesday at 6:20 p.m., when they were approached by two to three other men who attempted to rob them. An altercation took place, and one of the victims was beaten and the other one shot. The suspects took off in a car of unknown description, which headed southbound through the parking lot. The victims were taken to hospital and have since been released. Delta Police would not disclose where the men were from, or where on the body the man was shot. Police were expected to be canvassing local businesses to get a description of the suspects or their vehicle.

Surrey man charged in shooting A Surrey man has been charged with a double

shooting in Vancouver last month. Charges have now been laid against Surrey’s Steven Thoung Sitthikoun, 27, in the Oct. 21 shooting on Commercial Drive. Sitthikoun has been charged with two counts of attempted murder with a firearm. Sitthikoun has a lengthy history with the courts, and was found guilty of an assault that took place in Abbotsford April 5 this year. He remains in custody until his next court appearance on Dec. 5.

What is TBI? TBI is an abbreviation for traumatic brain injury, a severe head injury that can cause life-altering physical and mental impairments. TBIs are caused by a jarring impact that results in the brain slamming into the interior of the skull. Motor vehicle accidents are a major cause of TBIs. Traumatic brain injuries may be accompanied by a number of wide-ranging symptoms. Some of these symptoms may not be apparent immediately following the impact that caused the injury, but most TBI victims will suffer from multiple symptoms that may include: •    Behaviour or personality changes •    Difficult with Concentration

•    Blurred vision or double vision •    Dizziness •    Blood or clear fluid seeping from the nose or ears

Our first concern is you and your 10524 King George Hwy., #310 peace of mind. Our team will take the burdens from your shoulders and WHITE ROCK handle all the details of preparing, 15388 24th Ave., #202, South Surrey presenting and settling your claim. LANGLEY

Barnett said the company assessed all of the land over five years – including hydrology, environment, land use planning considerations, ecological considerations – and decided to only seek development on the 35-hectare land parcel east of Highway 91 and 72 Avenue. But Eliza Olson, president of the Burns Bog Conservation Society, says she’s skeptical of any guarantees made by MK Delta Lands. “It is Burns Bog that their land is on. It’s not close, it is. People like to think of the conservation area as Burns Bog, but that’s not correct,” said Olson, adding even MK Delta Lands’ hydrologist has said the peat is 70 feet deep in some parts of the 89 acres. Marzolf said Olson and the society have refused to meet with them since they first approached them seven years ago. Olson said she’ll let the public do the talking at the public meeting, which takes place on Dec. 5 at 6 p.m. at North Delta Secondary, 11447 82 Ave.

B.C. deficit to grow

Tuesday, December 4, 2012 Surrey/North Delta Leader 15

$1.47 billion in the red by end of March: Forecast

by Tom Fletcher The B.C. government has increased its deficit forecast

for the second time this fiscal year, citing lower revenues from coal sales and continuing low price and sales volume of natural gas. A slow real estate market has also reduced provincial revenues from the property purchase tax and provincial property tax for schools, B.C. Finance Minister Mike de Jong said Wednesday. De Jong released the finance ministry’s secondquarter update, forecasting that the deficit will reach $1.47 billion by the time the fiscal year ends March 31. That’s an increase of $328 million from the firstquarter forecast released in September. The September deficit forecast was up $173 million from last February’s budget, attributed mostly to a drop in natural gas prices and sales volume due to oversupply in the North American market. The finance ministry says natural gas prices and revenues have been flat since September, but coal and property tax revenue are driving a drop of $202 million in expected revenues to the provincial treasury since then. De Jong said despite the slide in revenues, he is still on track to balance the 2013 budget when he presents it in the legislature on Feb. 19. That promise is also featured in the government’s current round of advertising to promote its jobs plan.

In her speech Tuesday to the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce, Premier Christy Clark said she wouldn’t rule out tax increases of all kinds when the budget is presented. She emphasized the need to control personal taxes, and spending controls for government. “No, we will not cut education, and no we will not cut health care,” Clark said, leaving options open for spending cuts in other areas. Speaking for the NDP opposition, MLA Carole James said she does not believe the next budget will be truly balanced, despite a plan to sell government assets that she likened to “selling the family farm.” James noted that the forecast deficit has grown by about 50 per cent since the last budget, and B.C. Liberal claims of strict spending control are contradicted by spending $15 million on ads that mainly promote the B.C. Liberal arty in the run-up to the May election. In September, De Jong announced a governmentwide hiring freeze and restrictions on travel and other discretionary government spending. Wednesday he said $176 million in savings have been identified. The B.C. government has achieved balanced budgets in only five of the 11 years of B.C. Liberal rule. The current deficit is larger due to repayment of the federal government’s $1.6 billion-transition fund for the Harmonized SalesTax.

everything for nothing?” she asked. “We have to be careful we don’t turn so many people away from politics we end up with people who perhaps shouldn’t be there.” The Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation (CTF) this week called on five politicians to return more than $2,000 in meeting fees they collected for attending Metro’s Zero Waste Challenge conference Sept. 14. Twenty non-elected speakers at the conference volunteered their time and waived fees, but $346 fees were paid to Jackson, Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan, Surrey Coun. Marvin Hunt, Vancouver, and Coun. Andrea Reimer, and Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie received $692 for seven-and-a-half hours of time spent. “While the experts worked for free, our local politicians cashed in at anywhere from $92 to $230 per hour,” CTF B.C. Director Jordan Bateman said, adding the event cost Metro a total of nearly $100,000 in various rental, equipment and other costs. “If only the Zero Waste in the title of this conference referred to our tax dollars. Unfortunately, our trash seems to get more care and attention than our money.” Jackson accused Bateman of taking potshots at politicians to get publicity for the CTF while refusing to be transparent about

his own pay. “He can’t have it both ways,” she said. “I’m sure he doesn’t do what he does for nothing. I tried to Google it and it’s not there.” If Metro’s board endorse the changes, staff will draw up a bylaw. The proposed reduction would not apply to the fees directors get to attend regular Metro board and committee meetings. Those meeting fees – also $346, doubling after four hours – have steadily risen due to a Metro policy of indexing them to the median of Metro mayors’ salaries. When one or more cities raise their mayors’ pay, the regional fees have gone up as a result, and that has sometimes been used to justify more cities raising their mayoral salaries. The staff report doesn’t suggest changing the formula, but notes cities have been reporting mayoral salaries inconsistently, some failing to include car allowances, for example. All allowances should be included, it said, but the recalculation of Metro fees would only happen once every three years. In intervening years, the fees would be adjusted for inflation. Metro directors received nearly $714,000 through meeting fees last year, plus $44,000 in travel expenses.

Company doubles donations to Surrey Christmas Bureau iFund Lending to match cash contributions

Black Press

With the help of

iFund Lending, the Surrey Christmas Bureau has the opportunity to have its cash donations double. iFund Lending CEO Gord Bylo is encouraging all businesses and individuals in Surrey to make a donation to the bureau – which iFund Lending will match up to $10,000 – allowing the Surrey Christmas Bureau to provide hampers and toys for families registering this year. The Surrey Christmas Bureau has seen need grow 10 per cent year over year, however funding and donations have not kept pace. The Surrey Christmas Bureau will assist more than 1,700 low-

KC Gilroy income families and kids this year with basic food and presents for the holiday season. “Our society needs to be judged based on how we treat our most vulnerable,” Bylo said. “The Surrey Christmas Bureau shows us how.” Surrey Christmas Bureau Coordinator K.C. Gilroy says iFund Lending is a

long-term supporter of the Surrey Christmas Bureau. “They’ve shown that they care about living in an inclusive community and know that the compassion and support they demonstrate now will pay off later as children grow up feeling less alienated from the wider society around them,,” Gilroy says. The Surrey Christmas Bureau is located at 7404 King George Blvd. and is open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For further information on receiving help this holiday season, or if you would like to donate, visit www.surreychristmasbureau.com or phone 604-581-9623.

The Christmas lady Cloverdale woman transforms her home each season

by Jennifer Lang

Christmas Day. She admits her enthusiasm for Christmas decor may have damped theirs a little. “They like it…” she trails off momentarily, then adds: “I said, ‘What would you do if I didn’t do it? They said, ‘We wouldn’t care.’ But I think they would. I really do.” Fortunately, the newer additions to the family – including a daughter-in-law from China and another from India – joined Vrecko for another favourite family tradition: girl’s night. Each woman painted a window according to a Christmas theme that meant something to them, hence the red paper lanterns in one pane and a colourful peacock in another. After Christmas, everything will be packed into boxes and tucked away for another year. How much has Vrecko spent on decorations? “I wouldn’t even hazard a guess.”

She used to take an entire week off work to get all her decorating done, starting as soon as her four sons (now grown) went off to school, taking a break for supper, and then continuing into the evening. It now takes her a month to complete the

transformation, working in shifts of up to three hours. Vrecko is so crazy about Christmas, her kids urged her to name her sweet-natured whippet “Santa’s Little Helper” – like the dog on the Simpson’s – but she settled on “Holly” instead.

ting into the Christmas spirit, Santa’s got nothing on Sharon Vrecko. For more than 40 years, the decorating dynamo has turned her home into a Christmas wonderland, an annual tradition she shows no sign of abandoning. “I just love Christmas,” says Vrecko, who is wearing Christmas tree earrings, a Santa teddy bear sweater, and dark slacks patterned with wreaths, candy canes and presents. A visit to her home last week offered a tantalizing preview. “Usually, my target date is Dec. 1,” says Vrecko, who explains it all began in 1967 – the first year she was married. She had $80 to spend on decorations, and went to the Army and Navy department store. It was “more than enough to totally decorate our one-bedroom apartment,” she recalls. These days, she’s got a lot more floor (and wall) space to work with. If she sees a decoration or collectible she likes, she buys it, but keeps focused. “I don’t just ‘buy’ like I used to. I think.” Everything – from the miniature Santas representing countries (and family members) around the globe to tiny, snowcovered Christmas towns – is carefully arranged, contained to specific sections of rooms or pieces of furniture. A collection of angels gracing the piano in the corner of the family room is her pride and joy. “I walked into a Christmas store about nine years ago, and I saw them. I walked through the store with one, and then I thought, ‘No! I have to have them all now!’ I went back and I bought ’em all.” Now retired from her job at Canada Post (although she still helps answer letters to Santa), Vrecko used to spend her tips from letter-carrying on Christmas collectibles. As she points to various items, a memory sweeps into focus with each one. A holdout against artificial trees, she relented after her husband bought her a rotating artificial tree that was pre-lit. She was skeptical at first. “He says, ‘you only

Surrey Eagles defeat Langley, coquitlam

Division rivals swept by Nick Greenizan Chalk up four more points for the

streaking Surrey Eagles. The BC Hockey League team won twice more last week – 7-3 Tuesday over the Langley Rivermen and 4-2 Friday at home against the Coquitlam Express – to run their winning streak to four games. They won nine of their 11 games played in November. However, Surrey has not made up much ground in the race for first place in the BCHL’s Mainland Division as the team the Eagles are chasing – the Chilliwack Chiefs – have been just as hot. The Chiefs also won twice on the weekend, and like Surrey, won nine of 11 games last month. They sit four points up on the Eagles for top spot in the division. On Friday Devon Toews at South Surrey Arena, the Eagles relied heavily on goaltender Michael Santaguida, who stopped 43 of 45 Coquitlam shots to secure his 12th win of the season. The 19-year-old Ontario native was especially strong in the third period, when the Express peppered him with 18 shots, all of which he stopped. Rookie defenceman Jordan Klimek had a goal and an assist in the win, while fellow blueliner Devon Toews added two assists. Demico Hannoun, on the power play, and Mason Blacklock also scored, as did Trevor Cameron.

Jordan klimek (centre) celebrates a goal Friday night at the South Surrey arena against the Coquitlam Express. The Eagles won the BChl game 4-2. Coquitlam’s two goals both came in the second period, from John Seimer – on the power play – and Philip Zielonka. The four-goal outburst Friday was nothing compared to the goal-scoring bonanza at the Langley Events Centre the previous Tuesday, as the Eagles exploded for seven goals against the division-rival Rivermen, led by Brady Shaw, who had a hat

trick and two assists. Two of Shaw’s three markers came during a decisive second period, in which the Eagles – who trailed 2-1 after the opening 20 minutes – scored four times to take a commanding 5-2 lead. Shaw’s third goals came late in the third, and Stefan Burzan scored in a power-play goal in the game’s final minute to extend the lead.

Craig Wyszomirski had a goal and two assists, while Drew Best had a four-point night with one goal and three helpers. Nicolas Pierog rounded out the scoring for the visiting Eagles, who will be on Vancouver Island for two games next weekend. They will visit the Victoria Grizzlies Saturday night, then play the Nanaimo Clippers Sunday afternoon.

tournaments by the Grade 8 boys team may be indicative of a successful future for the Pacific Academy Breakers volleyball program. The Breakers won championship banners at the Christian Schools tournament, as well as the Surrey and Fraser Valley Championships, compiling a 40-2 won-loss record along the way. “The team was exceptionally talented and full of very strong athletes,” said coach Brynn Kennedy. “What makes it special is that this team is the first team in our school’s history to put a banner on our gym walls for boys volleyball at any level.” At the Fraser Valley tournament, the Breakers didn’t lose a set in winning all three matches in pool play. They swept the Westview Wildcats of Maple Ridge 25-6, 25-11 in the quarterfinal round, then stopped the Langley Fundamental Titans 25-22, 25-25 in a semifinal match, with Josiah Barkowsky leading the team with 10 kills. In a close championship match, they defeated the M.E.I. Eagles 17-25, 25-22, 15-5. Barkowsky was named tournament MVP (Most Valuable Player), while setter Andrew Wong and middle Joel Crawford were named to the all-star team.

by Rick Kupchuk ViCToriES oVEr the weakest teams in the

Pacific Junior Hockey League have helped the North Delta Devils tighten their hold on a playoff position in the Tom Shaw Conference. The Junior B team edged the Mission City Outlaws last Thursday night in Mission, then topped the Port Moody Panthers 4-3 Saturday night in the Sungod Arena. The Outlaws and Port Moody have combined for just 10 wins this season, and are at the bottom of the Harold Brittain Conference standings. North Delta improved their record to 14-10-2-0 (won-lost-overtime loss-tied),

and are in third place in the five-team Tom Shaw Conference, four points up on the Grandview Steelers and six ahead of the lastplace North Vancouver Wolfpack. Only the last place teams in each conference miss the postseason. Port Moody put a scare in the Devils Saturday night, leading 2-0 after 20 minutes despite getting outshot 14-9. Eric Kulla was in the North Delta goal, but was replaced by Tyler Read after the second Panthers goal. North Delta dominated the final two periods, holding a 40-11 shots on goal advantage and scoring four consecutive goals. Arvin Atwal and Benjamin Vikich tallied while on the power play in the second period

to tie the game 2-2. Blake Gorrill put North Delta in the lead five minutes into the third, and Eben Norman notched the winner with nine minutes left. The Panthers got one back with two minutes remaining in the game, but couldn’t get a second goal on Tyler Read, an 18-year-old White Rock native who got credit for the win in a backup role. North Delta also had a huge edge in play Thursday in Mission, but it wasn’t until the second period they took the lead. Devon Elford opened the scoring, then Marco Romano made it 2-0 10 minutes later. The Pilots cut the difference to 2-1 after two periods, but Joshua Smith’s power play

goal with less than five minutes to play stood up as the winner. Kurt Thrussell scored for Mission with three minutes to go. Sky Buller played his first game of the season in goal for North Delta, making 26 of 28 saves. The Devils will play three times this week, including a game tonight (Tuesday) against the Delta Ice Hawks in Ladner. The Ice Hawks, beaten just twice in their first 20 games of the season, have lost four in a row. On the weekend, North Delta will host the 11-11-1-0 Aldergrove Kodiaks at 6:45 p.m. Saturday in the Sungod Arena, then face-off against the Grandview Steelers Sunday at 4 p.m. at the Burnaby Winter Club.


Eagles win, lose to CBC Kwantlen basketball teams host Columbia Bible College by Rick Kupchuk A win At home over

the league’s only winless team has lifted the Kwantlen Eagles women’s team into fourth place in the PACWEST basketball standings. The Eagles dominated from start to finish, and defeated the Columbia Bible College (CBC) Bearcats 76-38 Nov. 23 at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. Four players scored in double digits for Kwantlen, including Holy Cross high school graduates Jessica Villadiego (19 points) and Jeannine Yngresso (10 points). Other leading scorers were Samantha McPhail with 14 points and Christina Brown with 10. The Eagles are 3-3 (won-lost) in league play.

Stefon Wilson An 97-90 overtime loss dropped the men’s team into a three-way tie for fifth place at 2-4, the same record as CBC and the Douglas College Royals. The Eagles held an 84-80 lead in the final minute of play, but the Bearcats drew even by the end of regulation. A 13-6 run in overtime gave the visitors the victory. Ali Bosir had possibly his best-ever game in a Kwantlen uniform. The Princess Margaret Secondary graduate scored 21 points, while grabbing 27 rebounds, making four steals and earning a pair of assists. “That was the best individual performance that I have been a part of in my coaching career,” said Eagles head coach Stefon Wilson, praising the Princess Margaret graduate. Aaron Ram of North Delta just missed a double double, scoring a game-high 28 points while adding nine rebounds.

“I think there must be something wrong with me Linus. Christmas is coming but I’m not happy. I don’t feel the way I’m supposed to feel. I just don’t understand Christmas I guess. I like getting presents and sending Christmas cards and decorating trees and all that, but I’m still not happy. I always end up feeling depressed”. For many, the Christmas season brings happy memories and the anticipation of special events spent with family and friends, decorating the home, giving gifts and sharing festive food and music. However, as Charlie Brown described in the 1965 classic, Charlie Brown’s Christmas, to identify, and understand the cause; as well as, know how to cope with one’s experience of depression is not always clear. There are many possible reasons why people experience depression. The onset of depression may occur following grief/loss, financial stress, chronic illness, a traumatic event, negative family dynamics or life transitions such as retirement or the birth of a child. Talking to someone about your thoughts and feelings is a healthy coping strategy. Some other ways to manage depression may include: to eat regular and balanced meals, drink plenty of water, ensure you get enough rest and sleep, regular exercise and spend time with people you feel cared and loved by. If you would like more information about coping with depression or any other issue that may be currently affecting your mental health, please call for your complimentary first appointment.

family Surrey parents’ adoption of five siblings from a Ukrainian orphanage will air twice in a TV documentary starting tonight

T

he scene is full of such raw, exposed emotion that the documentary’s director wonders aloud if she should stop filming. No, go ahead, the teenage girl cries as she flings all of her belongings onto the bed in preparation for heading out into the world feeling very much alone. She wants the world to hear her side of the story, to feel her pain. This moment is a torrential release of emotions that have been swirling inside a suburban home near Surrey for the past five years – and the emotions of the audience as they watch Julia Ivanova’s documentary about the couple who bravely takes on the challenge of adopting five siblings from the Ukraine. In High Five, which debuts today (Tuesday, Dec. 4) on the Knowledge Network, Cathy and Martin Ward may not have realized what they were taking on when they not only agreed to adopt the children, but allow Ivanova to film the experience. After Cathy Ward was seriously injured in a car accident, she and Martin decided not to risk pregnancy. Married for several years, the two nurses start the process of adopting a young girl from a Ukraine orphanage. Then they find out she has a sister. That’s fine, they say to themselves as Ivanova films them arriving in the Ukraine to be introduced to Snezhana and Alyona. But then the Wards find out that the girls have four other siblings – an older half-brother and half-sister and a younger brother and sister. The youngest sister had been adopted by another family as a baby, but the three other children also need a home. It takes a few years, but eventually the five siblings are living together again as a family, this time in Canadian suburbia. The documentary details the sadness of the children’s early years, as told by the oldest siblings, Yuliya, and Sergei. Their father died and their mother married an abusive drunk. The parents fought and when they fought, the children tried to find safe refuge but eventually the tales of violence

and abuse became known. When the authorities took away for one another. the four youngest children, their father blamed his two That’s why, as a director, Ivanova avoids judgement. She stepchildren.

Banks – both blood and food – join forces Canadian Blood Services asking for two kinds of donations throughout December Black Press Canadian Blood

Services’ annual Bleed & Feed is back for the third year in a row with the goal of fulfilling 14,000 holiday miracles for B.C. and Yukon residents. The program, in partnership with Food Banks BC, is counting on B.C. residents to become “miracle workers” by making more than 14,000 blood donations between Dec. 1 and Jan. 2 and bringing in non-perishable food items for local food banks to help alleviate the hunger felt by nearly 100,000 people. “We’re so pleased our member food banks across B.C. can partner again with Canadian Blood Services in this unique and collaborative initiative,” said Laura Lansink, Executive Director, Food Banks BC. “It’s a win-win proposition for people who want to help fulfil not one but two miracles in their community this holiday season.”

B.C. residents can book a donation appointment by visiting www.blood.ca or calling 1-888-2-DONATE (1-888-2366283). Donated food items will be collected until Dec. 31 in specially marked Bleed & Feed food collection boxes located in the front waiting area of blood donor clinics across the province. Food collected in Surrey will be donated to the Surrey Food Bank. “Unfortunately, the need for blood never takes a holiday and neither does hunger,” said Ed Yee, Director of Donor and Clinic Services for the B.C. and Yukon region of Canadian Blood Services. “Many families will be cel-

ebrating the holidays in hospital this year, while others struggle to have a meal. We hope to rally B.C. residents together and make the season brighter for more local families in need.” A blood donation this holiday season is the perfect gift. It costs nothing and it’ll give someone a holiday miracle. It can take five donors to help one person in cancer treatment so Canadian Blood Services encourages donors to bring along a friend or family member when they donate. The Surrey Blood Donor Clinic at 15285 101 Avenue is open Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Friday’s from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and at the same time on select Saturdays, which include Dec. 8 and 22.
