Left in the ‘dead zone’
Police now seeking witnesses after ‘horrific’ attack in Whalley
by Kevin Diakiw
WHEN HE walked past the end of Whalley’s noto-
rious “strip” on 135A Street near 106 Avenue last week, he saw her chained to a tree, moaning, trying with a weak voice to call for help. Ken Smith knew Janice well, but he barely recognized the 43-year-old Surrey woman because of the violent beating she appeared to have suffered.

City enters fight with cancer centre smokers Surrey passes bylaw banning smoking from hospital property by Kevin Diakiw EVAN SEAL / THE LEADER
Cancer patient and anti-smoking protester Glen Morris holds a sign outside Fraser Valley Centre at Surrey Memorial Hospital on Tuesday afternoon.
A GREY HAZE of cigarette smoke still covers the
entrances to Surrey Memorial Hospital and its cancer clinic – despite a new Surrey bylaw prohibiting smoking anywhere on the property. The bylaw amendment, passed by council on Mon-
day night, carries a $100 fine for people caught smoking anywhere on hospital property. However on Tuesday, hospital security was more interested in evicting protesters and media than quelling the smoke.

Police release sketch of robbery suspect Postal worker broke wrist in tussle with alleged thief by Sheila Reynolds A coMPosiTe drawing of a suspect
in the robbery of a Surrey postal worker late last month has been released by Surrey RCMP. A Canada Post employee was threatened with bear spray before being pulled from his truck and he suffered a broken wrist when his vehicle and mail were taken on Nov. 26 near 148 Street and 55 Avenue. The suspect is described as a “scruffy looking” Caucasian male in his mid-20s with a medium build, wearing a black hoodie and jeans. Police are also looking for two suspects involved in a second, separate inciRobbery suspect dent the next day (Nov. 27) near 139 Street and Antrim Road. The suspects, one of them described as a Caucasian male in his 20s with short red hair and marks on his face, took a female postal worker’s mail keys. The suspects in that incident fled in an older-model grey vehicle. Surrey RCMP are still investigating both robberies to determine if they’re connected. Anyone with information is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or if they wish to remain anonymous Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

Casino supporters pack Surrey City Hall More than 200 proponents at meeting by Kevin Diakiw A seA of blue t-shirts with a large white YES
printed on the back filled Surrey council chambers Monday afternoon, as supporters of a South Surrey casino complex showed council an upcoming hearing will be a contentious one. At least two bus loads of staff and supporters of Gateway Casinos and Entertainment Ltd. attended the land use meeting at Surrey City Hall. Their attention was fixed on a plan to build a $100-million casino and entertainment com-
plex on an 18-acre parcel of land at 10 Avenue and 168 Street. The few dozen residents from that area who oppose the development showed up wearing buttons with the word “casino” circled in red with a line through it. But they were completely overshadowed by the hundreds of young people sporting the shirts with the Gateway Casino logo on the front and text that stated: “More Entertainment=Strong Surrey.” Asked where she was from, one young woman said “Starlight,” referring to the casino in New Westminster. Council voted unanimously to forward the South Surrey proposal to a public meeting on Jan. 14. A council vote on whether or not to recommend the site for a gaming licence to the B.C. Lottery Corp. is expected on Jan. 15.
In sending it forward, most councillors said they were “delighted” to see the turnout from the public and looked forward to hearing from them. Peter Malowney, who has a farm just three kilometers away from the proposed site, said the development will turn the area into L.A. North. He said it is the bleakest example of urban intrusion onto agricultural land. Kathleen and Steven Arpink said they’ve sunk their life savings into their South Surrey property and their rural way of life is at risk. At the end of the meeting, two charter buses loaded with the Gateway supporters pulled away. For those who can’t attend the public meeting on Jan. 14, it will be livestreamed on surrey.ca and surreyleader.com

Witnesses: Urged to come forward From page 1
Her underwear was pulled down around her ankles, and she drooped from a tree, her arms chained to a big limb and her knees touching the muddy ground, Smith recalled. Some people in North Surrey are saying that in addition to being beaten, Janice was sexually assaulted and had one of her eyes scratched out over a drug debt. Surrey RCMP won’t confirm details of the beating and won’t confirm or deny whether a sexual assault occurred. Police also say they didn’t find the woman bound to a tree when they responded to a call at 12:40 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 2. They are saying she was a victim of a serious assault and suffered life-threatening injuries, including broken bones. As for the possibility of an outstanding drug debt being a motive, Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said it’s early in the investigation and a motive hasn’t yet been determined. As of Wednesday afternoon, the woman remained in hospital in critical condition, clinging to life. Smith, 51, said he’s been homeless on the streets of Whalley for two years and he’s seen lots of horrible things, but never anything this bad. “Nobody should have this happen to them.” He spotted the woman in an empty lot behind a tire shop at 106 Avenue and 135 A Street. The area around a tree shows it is frequented by many, with syringes, cast-off clothes, plastic bags and a plastic doll with its leg and head torn off littered across the lot. A white cinderblock wall is covered in graffiti, with
one missive stating: “No retreat, No surrender, Mad respect.” Several people in Whalley are angered that police didn’t release a warning to the public immediately following the discovery of the beaten woman. It was only after calls from The Leader days later that police publicly released some details. Smith isn’t surprised. “This is the dead zone,” he said as he walked north of 104 toward 108 Avenue. “They don’t tell you when bad stuff goes on up here.” Cpl. Paquet told The Leader that “at the early stages of this investigation, there were a lot of questions that remained unanswered. At the time, we believed that releasing details of the investigation might jeopardize its success.” Not everyone in Whalley accepts that explanation. “If this was a middle-class woman walking down the street, there would be a hue and cry (and) a great amount of outrage,” said Jonquil Hallgate, executive director of the Surrey Urban Mission Society, located just blocks away from where the woman was found. “The fact that she happened to be homeless, quite possibly living with addiction issues, somehow makes her life less valuable? So we don’t report it or we don’t have the same sense of outrage?” Eleven days after the attack, police are now asking for any witnesses to come forward in what they are calling a “horrific” assault. Anyone who was in the area of 135A Street and 106 Avenue on Sunday, Dec. 2 at about 12 noon who may have seen something unusual is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-5990502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
Smoking fines: Can be up to $2,000
From page 1
“It’s nothing more than I’ve seen in the last two-and-a-half years,” said recovering cancer patient Glen Morris of enforcement efforts. Fraser Health Authority (FHA) initiated a no-smoking policy on its property in 2008, but FHA Medical Officer Helena Swinkels said enforcement has been an issue. Security guards have been clearing out smokers, but there’s been no way to keep them from coming back – until Surrey passed its bylaw. Swinkels said Fraser Health will roll out its action plan in early January, which will include enforcement, education and help with smoking cessation. South Surrey’s David Thiele
raised the alarm in October that smokers at the B.C. Cancer Agency’s Fraser Valley Centre were turning the entrance way into a smoke pit. Several people, including hospital staff, were smoking outside the building, which is part of Surrey Memorial Hospital (SMH) property. Morris, also a patient at the 13750 96 Ave. cancer facility, has long been fighting to get compliance to FHA rules not to smoke on the property since 2010. The bylaw Surrey council passed on Monday night makes smoking outside the clinic unlawful and punishable by a fine of not less than $100 and up to $2,000. The city previously introduced a bylaw in 2008 banning smoking within 7.5 metres of any door, win-
dow, or vent of a building. The new bylaw matches FHA policy and covers the entire property of Surrey Memorial Hospital and the Jim Pattison Outpatient and Surgery Centre, located a few blocks away. City staff say the plan is to have hospital security personnel attempt to rid public areas of smokers. (On Tuesday, security guards evicted Morris and a Leader photographer from the property, saying they didn’t want any photos taken). If security is unsuccessful in getting smokers to butt out, they – or the public – can now call the city bylaw department. In the first quarter of this year, Surrey’s 17 bylaw officers had five smoking complaints – less than 0.1 per cent of all 5,545 bylaw enforcement actions during that time.

Seventy-five per cent of vehicles crossing the Port Mann in rush hour Monday were registered, Logan said, dropping to 60 to 70 per cent at off-peak times. â€œThatâ€™s terrific for us,â€? he said. â€œThe implementation from a system point of view is going very smoothly.â€? Drivers who signed up just before the Nov. 30 deadline for the 20 free trips still get the $30 account credit and all applicable discounts, even if they havenâ€™t received their TReO windshield decal. Their cars will be identified by licence plate cameras until the decals are installed. The $30 credits expire May 31. Drivers who registered as HOV lane users also get a 25 per cent discount when they travel in HOV lanes with two occupants at peak hours â€“Â 6:30 to 8:30 a.m. and 4 to 6 p.m. Regular users of the Golden Ears Bridge can also return their transponder for that bridge â€“Â the TReO decal works for both crossings. TransLink officials said itâ€™s too early to tell if the Port Mann tolls are resulting in more traffic using the Golden Ears Bridge, which is also tolled. Traffic has flowed well over the Port Mann since the extra three lanes opened Dec. 1, but congestion persists in the CoquitlamBurnaby sections of the freeway where Highway 1 construction continues through 2013. Phase two of the project includes adding one highway lane in each direction from Brunette Avenue to the Cassiar Tunnel in Vancouver and interchange upgrades at Gaglardi, Sprott/Kensington, Willingdon, Grandview Highway and Boundary Road.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK
Thursday, December 13, 2012
UBC SkyTrain line has a good case for it
re: “Lose the ‘grandIose’ SkyTrain plan,
Watts tells Vancouver,” The Leader, Dec. 11. When Surrey is pushing a $1-billion six-lane Pattullo Bridge on a reluctant New Westminster in the same week as the $3-billion widest-in-the world Port Mann Bridge and the $1.3-billion South Fraser Perimeter Road opened, it is a stretch to suggest the badly needed UBC SkyTrain line is “grandiose.” With 322,000 riders projected by 2041 and driving decreasing due to tolls, density and lack of interest among young people, the UBC line may serve more people than all these highway projects combined.
Due to the high ridership, the UBC line has one of the best business cases of all transit projects in North America. The UBC line is a critical regional connection linking Coquitlam, Burnaby, Vancouver and UBC. These cities have a combined population of 1.1 million and the majority of jobs in the region. Surrey residents will also benefit from a fast frequent transit connection to the airport, Richmond, central Broadway and UBC. We need to learn from the Golden Ears Bridge, which has far fewer users than expected. It delayed the Evergreen Line by several years and is costing TransLink and taxpayers $30
million a year as tolls are not covering the costs. Ironically, TransLink’s current shortfall is $30 million. A six-lane Pattullo will compete with badly needed light rapid transit in Surrey, reducing ridership and revenue thus increasing the subsidies for both projects. The solution is obvious: Place a reasonable toll on the existing Pattullo and Alex Fraser bridges to fund LRT in Surrey. This will be far more affordable for taxpayers and drivers than yet another overbuilt, under-used bridge. Richard Campbell, Vancouver
Delivering Surrey’s spirit to Mexico
I’ve heard that to whom much is
given, much is expected. Being one of today’s typical care-free 15-year-old girls, and often times admittedly a bit engulfed by my own sense of entitlement, I’ve never fully understood the meaning of this idea – until now. Recently, four youth – including myself – were given the wonderful opportunity to accompany the Semiahmoo Rotary Club to Hermosillo, Mexico for the delivery of 115 wheelchairs to children with disabilities. The four-day venture truly opened my eyes to the harsh reality that exists outside the borders of Surrey. I realized the more fortunate we are, the more we should reach out to those who have not been granted such comfortable circumstances. The Semiahmoo Rotary Club began fundraising efforts to purchase these wheelchairs about two years ago, and the project also involved the Canadian Wheelchair Foundation and the Panorama YMCA Interact Club, of which I am a proud member. On Mexico’s part, the Centre for the Rehabilitation of Children (CRIT), the Sonora State Government Health Group, the Foundation for Children with Disabilities (DIF), and the Hermosillo Rotary Club have all worked to make sure that each of the wheelchairs would be given to those who needed them most – including five specially equipped chairs for children with severe spinal conditions. The total dollar figure for the entire project stood at over $24,000, with each standard chair costing about $150 and the special ones $500 each. As for the distribution of the chairs, it began with the first individuals we met at
DIF, to the last woman whom we waved goodbye to as she sat teary-eyed at her doorstep with the comfort of her new gift underneath her. It’s almost unbelievable to think how many hands we shook (with a warm kiss on the cheek), the many heartfelt blessings we received, and the number of faces we saw lit up with the effect of gratitude, all in just four days. I was very touched by one woman whose emotions suddenly came pouring down her cheeks as I stood up from my crouched position beside her to give her the most sincere hug I could. A good minute or so passed before I let go with a soaked shoulder, and at this point I was trying to fight my own tears. When it came time to lift off the grounds of Hermosillo to return home, I gazed down at the city as it grew smaller with more altitude. Aside from nostalgia flooding through me, I can’t begin to explain the feeling of fulfillment from having left a warm sentiment of Canada in the Mexicans’ hearts. At the same time, the idea of even more people for whom gaining mobility is a distant dream made me want nothing more than to go back and help bring a smile to their faces too. The next set of fundraising plans are already drawn, with the goal of delivering another round of wheelchairs in 2014. So long Hermosillo. Hopefully my wishes will grant our reunion in the near future. To get involved with this initiative, please visit www.cdnwheelchair.ca or www.clubrunner.ca

Politicians get too Casino project pros much for too little outweigh the cons
I fInd It quIte amusing that Delta Mayor Lois Jackson accuses
Jordan Bateman of “taking potshots at politicians to get publicity for the Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation while refusing to be transparent about his own pay,” (“Metro may slash meeting fees,” The Leader, Dec. 4). I can assure Ms. Jackson that Jordon Bateman is not collecting his full salary, and unlike politicians, collecting up to an additional $692 for an “external meeting” running over four hours for being out of the office to attend such an event, plus travel time expense. Actually, if we could ask for a show of hands, I doubt very few people enjoy such lavish compensation, save politicians and government bureaucrats. It’s about time this practice be reviewed. James Dartnell Surrey
the members of the Rotary Club of Surrey at their Dec. 4 meeting had a majority vote to support Gateway Casinos and Entertainment Limited in their proposal for an entertainment centre in South Surrey. We are cognizant of the pros and cons of the proposal. However, when we weigh the outcomes we feel that this project will be a net benefit to our community in providing many good jobs, both during construction and later when in full operation. It is hoped that the develop-
ment of the casino will provide stability of property taxes, as well as net tax benefit to the city for a number of years. We will also have the added capacity to increase opportunities for more convention/meeting and entertainment packages in the City of Surrey for the greater benefit of our citizens and we will be able to spend our entertainment dollars in our city instead of in another community.

A long journey for tradespeople I read aLL the gnashing and
wailing and the pathetic attempts to pass the blame for the fact that Canada does not have enough journeymen tradespeople Well the B.C. Liberals in particular can stop looking anywhere else because the buck stops with them. It is a fact that because of the concerted effort by Gordon Campbell to destroy the unions and the trades programs they supported goes right to the root of this problem. As a young man, I attended trade school. But in those days it was different. Trades training was administered by the various trade unions and they had a goal not only of training qualified apprentices and journeyman tradespersons, but keeping wages and benefits high, otherwise known as a good living wage, so that people would want to do the training to acquire a wellpaying profession. Trades training now is either non-existent or trains people to the minimum standards so as to keep them non-union and lower wages – just what pleases the companies, and they don’t particularly care where they get workers from. In fact, they can pay them less if they do come from somewhere else. I hope they are happy. They are, after all, victims of their own success, literally not having any skilled journeyman workers to fill critical jobs. This is what happens when companies are allowed to control education and skills training. It is as always cheaper to bring in workers from other jurisdictions such as China or Europe. It is the federal and provincial governments’ first and highest responsibility to train our Canadian workers and children to do all levels of skill training and higher education jobs, no matter the cost, which in reality is not a cost at all, but an investment in the future of this country and truly the most gainful use for our tax dollars.

Surrey mayor taking no stand on coal terminal Groups aim to thwart exports, increased carbon emissions
by Jeff Nagel Surrey Mayor Dianne
Watts says she’s taking no position yet on Fraser Surrey Docks’ proposal to build a controversial new coal export terminal in her city on the Fraser River. Mayors from Delta and Vancouver have already voiced concern about plans to ramp up coal exports and the proposed new terminal in Surrey and the expansion of an existing one in North Vancouver are under fire from climate change activists. Port Metro Vancouver says it has referred the two proposals to the cities of Surrey and North Vancouver for comment. But Watts said she was not yet aware of any request for council to take a position. “When we get it, we’ll have a look,” she said. “We need to make sure we have all the information before us before we have a position one way or another.” Watts said the city’s
chief concern is that the public be adequately consulted. Surrey Coun. Marvin Hunt said Thursday no city residents have raised the issue with him. In a letter to the port released this week, Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson said he’s concerned the two proposals, making Metro Vancouver North America’s largest coal exporting port, are being considered without full public consultation. The Fraser Surrey Docks terminal would handle four million tonnes of coal initially, doubling later to eight million. It would ship thermal coal from the U.S. that would come on coal trains running through White Rock and Delta on the BNSF railway. A second proposal would let Neptune Terminals in North Vancouver boost exports of metallurgical coal from 12 to 18 million tonnes per year.
Coal spill Ship collides with jetty at Deltaport by Adrian MacNair a large freighter rammed into Westshore’s coal
terminal in Deltaport just after midnight Friday (Dec. 7), causing extensive damage to a coal loader. The large ship collided with a trestle leading into one of the two deep sea berths, removing 400 feet of the causeway, according to Westshore spokesman Ray Dykes. About 1 a.m. Friday, a “Capesize” vessel called the Cape Apricot was coming into the inner berth and somehow managed to not turn and went straight through the causeway, which leads to the outer berth, Dykes said. “We’ve got a great big gap in our causeway and we’re looking into what we can do about salvage and all sorts of things.” Nobody was injured in the collision and it’s too early to tell how much repairs will cost, he added. The 289-metre long bulk carrier flies under a Panama flag and was built in 2004, according to online sources. Dykes said a “very little” amount of coal spilled into the ocean, “less than a third of one coal car.” A coal car typically has a capacity of close to 100 metric tonnes. Westshore Terminals’ Roberts Bank facility is the largest coal export facility in Canada, shipping 27.3 million tonnes of coal in 2011, surpassing the combined total coal exports of all other Canadian facilities. The coal terminal stretches across 54 hectares, and services more than 200 ships annually. Westshore employs 200 full time staff, and in more than 40 years of operation, has exported 675 million tones of coal to more than 20 countries world wide, according to the company’s website.
“It has not been an issue in the community,” said North Vancouver City Mayor Darrell Mussatto, adding the coal is for steelmaking, not to burn for power – a coal use he doesn’t support. His council hasn’t taken any position on the Neptune project. Outbound coal would go by barge to Texada Island and then be reloaded onto oceangoing ships. Coal has long been exported from
Metro Vancouver via Westshore Terminals in Delta – where a shipping accident Friday dropped some coal into the ocean. But opponents say more of it – especially thermal coal – appears to be coming from U.S. producers because new terminals proposed in Washington and Oregon have run into determined protests. As with oil pipeline proposals, environmentalists would like to keep U.S. coal from
being burned and adding to greenhouse gas emissions, but the coal terminal projects can be directly approved by port managers, without regulatory hearings or the consent of any other level of government. The two proposals could boost Metro Vancouver coal exports by more than a third, from 40 to 54 million tonnes per year. A poll paid for by the Victoria-based Dogwood Initiative found 64 per cent of
B.C. respondents were unaware when asked if they’d heard of plans by U.S. coal mining companies to ship coal to Asia via B.C. ports. And 47 per cent said they oppose letting U.S. firms “export their coal to China and the rest of Asia by way of our ports.” The questions asked by Justason Market Intelligence made no mention of the fact large volumes of coal already move through Port Metro Vancouver
and Prince Rupert. “Perhaps it’s something we should have considered doing,” said pollster Barb Justason when asked if the 540 respondents might wrongly conclude this is the first time coal exports are being proposed. “There’s no doubt a proportion of people not aware this already goes on,” she said, adding only so much information can be relayed a survey.

City slowed spending in 2009-2010 Report warns there’s room to improve, and that one year is too soon to tell the whole story
by Kevin Diakiw Surrey iS being
ranked as on of the most-improved cities for keeping spending in line by a federation of business groups. The Canadian Federation of Independent Businesses (CFIB) has
released its annual spending watch, in which it says municipal spending is getting better, but remains out of control. “It’s a little like driving off a cliff, but slowly,” said CFIB Vice-President Laura Jones. “It’s a good idea to apply the brakes,
but we’re still getting closer to the edge.” The CFIB says that if municipal spending had just kept pace with population over the last decade, British Columbians would have saved $4.26 billion, or $4,251 for a family of four. Instead, municipal
spending in this province quadrupled population growth. The year spanning 2009-2010 showed a sharp slowdown in spending, which increased by only one per cent, compared to the seven per cent the year prior. “One year of relatively good behavior is a promising sign, but it’s much like the early days of a diet,” Jones said. “It could go either way and only time will tell.” Surrey was one of the most promising cities during the latest year examined. Chilliwack, Burnaby and Surrey topped
the “most improved” category when rated according to per capita spending. However, the city’s 2009-2013 Financial Plan shows new capital projects, namely the new city hall and City Centre Library, increased 2010 and 2011 spending by $126 million. Surrey Coun. Tom Gill, who chairs the city’s finance committee, said the leaner spending trend for Surrey will likely continue for some time. “I think as we move forward, and with the growth that we’ve had, I think our efficiencies
will continue,” Gill said Thursday. “I think this trend is something that will continue.” The biggest cost the city has is in firefighting and policing, which accounts for more than 70 per cent of the operating costs. Despite those costs and the drop in spending, Surrey residents are getting excellent service throughout the city, Gill said. The Union of B.C. Municipalities (UBCM) has repeatedly taken issue with the CFIB reports, arguing they are simplistic and don’t take into account challenges like government
cost downloading and runaway policing costs over which cities have little control. UBCM previously estimated that reducing business tax rates to CFIB-demanded levels without cutting spending would trigger a 14.5 per cent residential tax increase of $230 for the average B.C. home. A provincially appointed expert panel on business tax competitiveness considered the property tax issue earlier this year but largely sided with UBCM and did not recommend government attempt to forcibly lower business property tax rates.
Cars, dumpster torched Police say fires on Tuesday morning are suspicious

New judges vs. backlog
Thursday, December 13, 2012 Surrey/North Delta Leader 13
Pilot project to reduce wait time for children’s cases by Tom Fletcher The B.C. government
is appointing nine new provincial court justices and launching a pilot project to reduce the wait time for hearing child protection cases. Attorney General Shirley Bond announced Tuesday that two judges will be assigned to work with Chief Judge Thomas Crabtree on the child protection case management project this spring, and a second pilot program to reduce criminal court waiting times. Two of the new judges will be assigned to Surrey, home to the busiest provincial court in the province.
One each will go to Port Coquitlam, North Vancouver, Vancouver, Kamloops-Okanagan and the Northeast district. The changes are based on a review of B.C. court delays by lawyer Geoffrey Cowper, who called for a system to enforce timely hearings of evidence, to overcome a “culture of delay” and a tendency of defence lawyers to seek delays that weaken the prosecution case. The B.C. Crown Counsel Association has also identified Nanaimo and Richmond as having excessive delays. Association president Samiran Lakshman said in Surrey, it takes 14 months or more to
schedule a half a day for a brief trial. Bond said the extra judges bring the B.C. total to 132 full-timeequivalent, with each judge and support staff costing $1.6 million a year. “The addition of nine new judges and the backlog reduction projects – and specifically the assignment of judicial resources to those projects – sign a shared understanding by all parties that changes
need to be made to improve the justice system,” Bond said. Cowper noted that 98 per cent of criminal cases end with a guilty plea or a stay of proceedings, but the system treats all cases as if they are going to trial. The number of cases dropped significantly after B.C. police started imposing heavy roadside penalties for impaired driving instead of sending suspects to court.

overturned the results of the Tsawwassen First Nation (TFN) Sept. 5 election that saw 23-year-old Bryce Williams unseat longtime chief Kim Baird in a close 78-69 vote. In its finding issued Tuesday, the judicial council stated a notice of the new election must be called by the TFN Executive Council no later than Jan. 11, 2013. TFN’s Elections Act states that the Executive Council must give at least 90 days of notice for a general election. In the interim, the current government will continue. Baird confirmed she will seek re-election, but said she wouldn’t discuss her election plans until the new date is officially announced. “I do plan on running again. I just want to say, though, that it’s not been the easiest of decisions. It’s been a challenging time for me and the community as well, so I’m happy the decision’s made so there’s a way forward such as it is, but I’ll be even more relieved when this next

process is complete.” Chief Williams said the news was disappointing but that he would continue “business as usual.” “It’s just the process that we have to follow and obviously I’m going to be running again and I’m pretty confident that I’ll be getting reelected,” he said. An appeal was launched Oct. 5 by Mike Baird, brother of Kim Baird, and Christina Shellard, her niece, citing a voting irregularity, specifically about the timing of election notices. Mike Baird also ran in the election and launched the appeal because he was concerned about the people who did not get to vote, said Kim Baird. According to figures released by TFN officials in September, 148 members voted out of an eligible 260, for a turnout of 57 per cent. TFN has a population of 439. TFN has a constitution and election act which govern democratic elections, as well as appeals. The judicial council holds the same legal authority as the B.C. Supreme Court.

Real estate sales slump ProPerty sales were down more than 28 per cent in November from a year earlier, according to the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver. The region’s composite residential benchmark price has declined 4.5 per cent to $596,900 since peaking in May at $625,100. The benchmark is down 1.7 per cent from a year ago. Board president Eugen Klein said sellers seem more inclined to take their home off the market than cut the price, while buyers still expect lower prices to come. In the Fraser Valley, which includes Surrey, White Rock and North Delta, year-over-year sales were down 19 per cent. Both regions also saw significantly lower sales from October. The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board said its composite residential benchmark price is down one per cent in the last six months. Detached houses there were still up two per cent from a year ago to $544,700.

Just over seven weeks of the delay to treatment in B.C. was the initial wait between the GP and the specialist, an improvement from 9.7 weeks in the Fraser Institute’s 2011 survey. B.C. patients waited an average four weeks for CT scans and ultrasounds – slightly longer than the national average. And the wait of 12 weeks for an MRI scan was much longer than the national average of 8.4 weeks, although it’s an improvement from 16 weeks in the previous two years.

Bigger surplus may solve Transit shortfall Minister lays out provincial conditions for new TransLink funding sources
by Jeff Nagel
TransLink may not
face a $30-million shortfall after all if regional mayors rescind a scheduled property tax hike. Independent TranLink Commissioner Martin Crilly now estimates TransLink has $25 to $35 million more available to it than the transportation authority disclosed in its 2013 base plan because it has underestimated the revenue it will pull in and overestimated the expenses. “The expenditure estimates, in our view, are a little heavy,” Crilly told mayors in a briefing on Dec. 6, adding it wasn’t clear if that was “by omission or by an abundance of caution” on TransLink’s part. He said the extra money could equate to a four to six per cent increase in bus service. Mayors had vowed this fall to cancel the $23 per average home property tax hike if the province failed to deliver new funding sources before March, chopping $30 million in each of the next two year and precipitating what was then assumed to be a new revenue crisis that might force deep transit service cuts. Now mayors and TransLink officials are hopeful the tax hike won’t be needed for 2013. TransLink CEO Ian Jarvis disputes Crilly’s findings, however, noting there’s no provision yet in TransLink’s plan for a negotiated pay hike for unionized workers, and he suggested the commissioner’s estimates may be too optimistic in other areas. “We are not going to put services out that people rely on and make life decisions around on the premise that we may have to pull them back,” Jarvis said. The disclosure came Wednesday after mayors also met Transportation Minister Mary Polak behind closed doors, where she spelled out the province’s position on how it might
approve new sources of revenue for TransLink. More money for the long term is needed to build new rapid transit lines in Surrey and Vancouver and generally expand transit service. Polak said the government insists the mayors clearly spell out the money they seek to raise, how they would raise it, what it will go to fund and that they demonstrate public backing. “I need to see that there is public support for that change,” she said. “The mayors need to put together what is their consensus on the priorities for the region.” Polak said the mayors’ desire to pursue comprehensive road pricing – where small tolls are charged on roads across the region – would take at least
four to five years to implement and would require the highest degree of public buy-in. Even a simpler scenario like imposing an annual vehicle levy could not go ahead if it’s not affordable or if it has a negative impact on the regional economy, she said. Mayors’ council chair Richard Walton said he didn’t expect a breakthrough in the first discussion with Polak on funding reform, but added Victoria’s apparent reluctance to grant new sources suggests “there’s going to be some tension.” The premier previously rebuffed the mayors’ demands for new revenue last spring, saying they’d have to wait until an audit was finished. It failed to solve TransLink’s financial bind and mayors
say they seem no closer to a solution. “It gets a bit frustrating,” said New Westminster Mayor Wayne Wright, who took over as mayors’ council vicechair, defeating Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender. “We’re still moving at a snail’s pace.” Fassbender had worked closely with the BC Liberals but Wright said he could offer a more neutral perspective, from a city in the centre of the region that’s already fully served by SkyTrain and not seeking a new line. Walton, mayor of North Vancouver District, was returned as chair by acclamation. He said TransLink needs more money not to maintain its existing level of service but to See TRANSIT / Page 18

Ridership won’t double by 2020
by Tom Fletcher The B.C. governmenT’s ambitious goal to double
transit ridership by 2020 is not going to be met at the current rate of growth, Auditor General John Doyle reported on Dec. 7. Doyle’s audit of BC Transit’s efforts to meet that goal found that since it was set in 2008, ridership increased by 6.9 million by last spring, the latest annual total available. The original target was 9.4 million by that time, and the gap is expected to grow further by 2014-15. The provincial transit plan was unveiled early in 2008 by former premier Gordon Campbell and then-transportation minister Kevin Falcon. Its $14 billion price tag included federal and municipal investment, with SkyTrain and other urban light rail accounting for $10 billion. It included the now-completed Canada line, the Evergreen extension to Coquitlam and another SkyTrain extension to the University of B.C.

Rapid bus systems for Kelowna and Victoria were the only parts of the plan outside the Lower Mainland. The audit identified a lack of clear targets and collaboration between BC Transit and the B.C. transportation ministry, and recommended that the targets and timelines be reviewed. The audit was underway when the province did its own review of BC Transit’s rocky relationship with local governments. Transportation Minister Mary Polak announced in September that local communities will be asked to nominate directors for the BC Transit board, and the province would make it easier to amalgamate a patchwork of local transit systems into regional authorities like the one that serves Greater Victoria. The B.C. government pays 47 per cent of costs for BC Transit service in partnership with 58 local governments in B.C.

rey and Vancouver will work well together to help determine the timing of the two lines and avoid a feud over which one gets priority. Crilly’s term as TransLink commissioner is ending and area mayors appointed Bob Irwin as his replacement effective May 1.

Metro consultants exit after ‘biased’ email Company was working on incineration projects
by Jeff Nagel A consulting company
overseeing Metro Vancouver’s waste-to-energy procurement process has withdrawn after the regional district decided the firm’s role was tainted by the emergence of an email showing “unacceptable bias” from a staff member. Metro officials agreed HDR Corp.’s $1.9-million contract, which was up for likely renewal at the end of December, should end because of a May 18 email from a senior HDR staff member to a Metro manager. “The email, if read on its face, seemed to indicate the possibility of a bias towards certain technologies,” said Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie, who chairs Metro’s zero waste committee. He would not say if the email showed preference towards mass-burn incineration or to one of a variety of other technologies that could be used in a new plant to burn 370,000 tonnes per year of Metro garbage. Brodie said the email didn’t come to the attention of senior Metro managers until early November but officials then took
“immediate action.” He said Metro’s procurement process – now underway – was not compromised or inappropriately designed as a result of HDR’s work, adding the HDR staffer who sent the email didn’t have any technical involvement in the work. Even a perception of bias couldn’t be allowed, he added. “We’re under an obligation to have a fair and unbiased and complete and transparent process,” Brodie said. He said a new consulting firm will be found to oversee the process. Four independent experts have been selected to help guide the process and HDR was to oversee them. Brodie wasn’t able to say how much money or time the change might cost taxpayers. Metro is now inviting firms to propose technologies and later in 2013 it will ask short-listed firms and other property owners to propose sites. The region intends to send garbage to a new wasteto-energy plant or plants starting in 2018 and end shipments to the Cache Creek landfill. A statement issued by HDR
said the email could be perceived as attempting to influence the procurement process but adds that did not happen. “The process was not influenced but we want to avoid any appearance of impropriety, so we asked Metro Vancouver to end our contract in the project’s best interest.” Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) politicians have repeatedly accused Metro Vancouver of being biased in favour of building a new incinerator in the region – where they say it would worsen air pollution in the Valley – rather than fairly considering alternatives. “Something just seems really fishy here,” Abbotsford Coun. Patricia Ross said. She said she raised concerns about HDR with Metro months ago after they learned former Metro solid waste manager Ken Carrusca now works for the firm. The ex-manager had been involved in previous Metro-led consultations about waste-toenergy that FVRD reps charged were pro-incineration. HDR says Carrusca was not the sender of the email.

Dikes require big-ticket upgrades to hold back sea Possible ‘managed retreat’ in some areas: Report by Jeff Nagel

Rising sea levels will force major upgrades to the Lower Mainland’s expansive network of dikes in the coming decades, according to a provincial government report. The newly released findings estimate dike upgrades could cost $9.5 billion over the next 90 to 100 years to prepare the Metro Vancouver area to withstand a significant increase in ocean levels as a result of climate change. The report, titled Cost of Adaptation – Sea Dikes and Alternative Strategies, examined 250 kilometres of ocean shoreline from West Vancouver to White Rock and on the Fraser River as far upstream as the Port Mann Bridge. It’s a follow-up to a 2011 report that predicted a one-metre rise in sea level along the B.C. coast by the end of the century. Actual construction of larger dikes or other protective structures would be a small $880-million slice of the overall cost estimate. A larger chunk is $1.6 billion for property acquisition, much of it in areas where taller dikes will require larger footprints,
encroaching on adjacent land. But the biggest cost component is an estimated $3.25 billion for seismic upgrades – more than half of the $6.3-billion overall cost before a 50 per cent contingency is added. One of the risks flagged in the report is that an earthquake could cause some soil layers underneath dikes to liquefy, threatening their integrity. The proposed changes take into account not just the sea level rise but land subsidence, maximum high tide, storm surge, wave effects and the need for freeboard. Not all areas of low-lying land threatened by the ocean would be defended. The report calls for a strategy in some flood-prone areas of “managed retreat” where currently developed areas are decommissioned over time and returned to a natural or low-value state that can flood periodically. “Managed retreat may be a viable option at Mud Bay [in Surrey],” it says. “However, the decision to retreat is complicated and would have to be made with extensive stakeholder input and economic
analyses.” Also contemplated are $10-million sea gates at the mouths of the Serpentine and Nicomekl Rivers, as well as a $25 million sea gate that could be closed during storms to protect Vancouver’s False Creek area. Steveston’s densely developed waterfront of historic buildings might be protected by using Shady Island and a new sea gate as a storm surge barrier. The report also considered the value of property and buildings in areas of Metro Vancouver – as well as social and environmental factors – as part of deciding whether expensive floodprotection works are justified on a cost-benefit basis. The report also suggests a Regional Flood Protection Plan be drawn up with the province, municipalities and other agencies participating. Developers are already recognizing the need for change. Norm Shearing, vice-president of Parklane Homes, told a Metro Vancouver forum last month plans for the new River District residential area in Vancouver along the Fraser River were revised at huge expense to meet higher flood plain requirements.

The 21st annual Georgie Awards dinner will be held on Feb. 23 at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
By Kerry Vital
Vancouver, the first European to enter Burrard Inlet in 1792. Since the awards began in 1992, the categories, criteria, price points and square footage have changed to reflect new ideas in the construction industry. The most recent change has been to energy-efficiency categories, with the creation of new ones and the addition of new criteria to older categories. The winners will be announced at a black-tie awards gala in February. For a full list of finalists, check out www. georgieawards.ca.
The Canadian Home Builders’ Association of British Columbia has announced the finalists for this year’s Georgie Awards, honouring the best in the residential construction industry. This will be the 21st annual awards, which reward builders, renovators, marketers and sales representatives. The awards are known across Canada for recognizing excellence and innovation in B.C. “A Georgie Award is recognized as an industry stamp of quality. Award entries are at a record high, and the calibre of projects is a testament to the talents and efforts of CHBA BC members,” says the CHBA BC. This year, the CHBA BC received over 500 entries in a total of 45 categories. The categories include awards for singlefamily, multi-family and custom homes, as well as renovations on various budgets, marketing and outdoor spaces. Among the nominees are Portrait Homes, Kenorah Construction & Design, Adera Development Corporation and Harald Koehn Construction Ltd. The awards will be presented by CHBA BC and BC Homes, and are judged by a panel of residential construction industry professionals from outside of the province. Finalists for the Grand Georgie Awards and Customer Choice Georgie Awards will be announced next month. The Georgie Awards are named after Captain George

Buying booze? Make sure you share a bear BC Liquor Stores help children’s charities with annual Christmas campaign Black Press BC Liquor Stores
throughout the province have welcomed the arrival of twin teddy bears for the Share-aBear campaign. Customers purchase twin teddy bears for $11 and then “share” one of the bear twins with a local community charity. BC Liquor Stores staff donate the ‘shared’ bear to families in need through children’s charities, shelters and hospitals in their local community. “The Share-a-Bear program is a great way to put a smile on a child’s face,” said Roger Bissoondatt, the Liquor Distribution Branch’s acting general manager. “Our employees are committed to support-
ing local organizations that reach out to the less fortunate in their communities, and many
of our customers demonstrate that same commitment by supporting our campaigns such as
Share-a-Bear.” Last year more than 27,000 bears were donated to families
with children in need, and more than 400,000 bears have been donated since the pro-
province. For a list of locations and hours of operation, visit www. bcliquorstores.com

Surrey club to host women’s provincial championship
Scotties back in Cloverdale T by Rick Kupchuk
he BC Scotties is returning to Surrey, two years after a very successful firstever tournament at the Cloverdale Curling Club. Ten of the best women’s teams will be in Cloverdale Jan 14-20, 2013 to decide a provincial champion and B.C.’s representative to the Scotties Tournament of Hearts a month later in Kingston, Ontario. The local club hosted a very successful provincial tournament in 2011, and Curl BC had hoped to return to Cloverdale again the following season. “They (Curl BC) wanted us to do it last year, but we just couldn’t,” said Cloverdale Curling Club manager Judy MacKinnon. “We committed to the (Canadian Postal Employees Curling Classic) tournament.” But with room on Judy MacKinnon the club’s 2012-13 calendar, they accepted the challenge hosting a second BC Scotties in three years, an event which will see a week of round robin play following by a semifinal on Jan. 19 and the final on Jan. 20. Both playoff games will be televised live on Shaw TV. “It puts the Cloverdale Curling Club on the map, some people don’t know there’s a curling club in Surrey,” said MacKinnon. “It helps give the city some publicity. And it lets our curlers know we do more than just offer the little things like the weekly leagues to curl in. It shows we can do some of the bigger events as well.” Kelly Scott, the skip of the three-time defending provincial championship team from Kelowna, drew an automatic berth into next month’s competition. Marla Mallett has skipped her Cloverdale foursome into the tournament, earning the most points on the Canadian Team Ranking System between Dec. 1, 2011 and Nov. 15, 2012. The former Royal City Club member now calls the Cloverdale club home, and is on a team that includes third Kelly Shimizu, second Shannon Ward, lead Barb Zbeetnoff and fifth Danielle Callens. Six other teams qualified at two Open Events last month, with another two to qualify at a threeteam play down this weekend in Vernon. Marilou Richter of the Royal City Club, Prince George’s Patti Knezevic and Roberta Kuhn of
“It puts the cloverdale curling club on the map...”

Kelly Scott of Kelowna will attempt to defend her BC Scotties Championship next month at the Cloverdale Curling Club. Vernon qualified at the first qualification event in Vernon Nov. 20. Allison MacInnes of Abbotsford, Pat Sanders of Victoria and Simone Groundwater of Williams Lake qualified two weekends ago in North Vancouver. Tickets will be available next week by calling the Cloverdale club at 604-574-4483, and the
price of $40 for a tournament pass is possible only because of the lower costs of hosting at the local venue. “We had 500 people a draw last year,” said McKinnon. “(Hosting at) an ice rink is too big, a bigger rink drives the cost of the ticket higher. We want to keep it at the club, this way the seniors and the kids from the local schools can attend.”
Lacrosse bans fighting
by Travis Paterson
Turn away Don Cherry, turn
away. Fighting will no longer be condoned in the senior, junior or intermediate levels of box lacrosse, where it was a fabric of the sport until Monday afternoon. Starting in 2013, any player who engages in a fight will be given a major penalty and a game misconduct. Last month the Canadian Lacrosse Association (CLA) voted on a ban to fighting at all levels of box lacrosse. The decision was based on a report presented to the CLA board in October by an appointed committee which spent five months preparing their review since May 2012. “It’s a first step,” said BC Lacrosse Association vice-president Ron McQuarrie, who was part of the committee to review fighting. “It’s an improvement, and people know that. Will there still be fighting (this year)? Probably, but there will be consequences. Fighting doesn’t play a part in sports, except the UFC.” The Canadian Lacrosse Association announced the rule change in a press release Monday, saying fighting is a “dangerous activity.” “Incidents of concussions can increase with every fight that happens; it is becoming more apparent that a blow to the head area has the potential to cause severe and long-term injury.” McQuarrie said the rule change has nothing to do with the growing popularity of field lacrosse in Canada, which does not have fighting. “We felt people will recognize this is a good move. It’s where we want to take our box game.”

But one win and three ties in those four games left the Hawks in sixth place in the 11-team league, but while still headed for a playoff position, they lost an opportunity to gain ground in the race for home-ice advantage
in the postseason. After a win and a tie on the road against a Kootenay Ice team that had won just two of 20 games in the first half of the season, Valley West played to a pair of draws at home to the Thompson Blazers,

losers of 19 games. The two teams played to a 3-3 tie Saturday night in the South Surrey Arena, then drew 4-4 Sunday morning at the Surrey Sports and Leisure Centre in Fleetwood. The teams traded goals in Saturday’s game, with the Blazers taking one-goal leads in each of the first two periods, and Valley West tying the score on tallies by Darien Craighead and Jake Fletcher. Jakob Stukel of Cloverdale put the Hawks in front for the first time early in the third period, but Thompson earned their first tie of the season with a goal with 87 seconds to play. Sunday morning in Fleetwood, the Blazers used three power play goals to earn another draw. Rhett Wilcox of Surrey netted the first Hawks goal, which left the teams tied 1-1 after 20 minutes. The Blazers took a 3-1 lead midway through the game, but Addison Bazian got one back for the home team before the second intermission. Wilcox and Ian Bennett scored for the Hawks early in the third period, giving Valley West a 4-3 lead. The Blazers got the tying goal with six minutes to play, earning themselves their first undefeated weekend of the season. The Hawks are in Kelowna next weekend for two games against the third-place Okanagan Rockets.

Yo ho ho and a panto of fun Royal Canadian Theatre Company presents its latest Christmas pantomime production, Robinson Crusoe and the Pirates by Alex Browne
ot even a broken ankle can keep the irrepressible Ellie King down. The Langley-based “panto queen,” founder and artistic director of the Royal Canadian Theatre Company (RCTC) – whose Christmas entertainments are a fixture in the Surrey Arts Centre from midDecember to early January – has been hobbling through rehearsals but, we’re happy to report, is otherwise unimpeded as director of her latest, Robinson Crusoe and the Pirates. The rollicking seafaring tale comes to Surrey Arts Centre Dec. 20 to Jan. 6. Fortunately, members of her extended panto family were ready to wear some of King’s many hats this year. Jackie Bruce, for instance, was able to step in as choreographer for the show, while one of King’s regular professional players, Kerri Norris, has taken on the key role of production manager, as well as a plum supporting role as daffy tour guide Polly Perkins. Panto-fanciers can expect King’s patented brand of colourful, traditional, kid-friendly, cheer-the-hero, boo-the-villain adventure, with plenty of song and dance and a healthy helping of groan-worthy knockabout humour, spearheaded by obligatory panto animal Griselda the Gorilla and veteran RCTC player Alan Cedargreen as Dame Kitty Crusoe. Well-known White Rock/South Surrey player Erin Coon takes the role of Robinson, with Tony DeMatteis as Cap’n Blight, Bob Wilson as First Mate Bruce, Tim Zhang as Second Mate Bruce, and Claurien Zanoria as beauteous Princess Friday, with keyboard wizard Geoff King and percussionist Sheila Rebelato once again providing a versatile “orchestra.” King notes this show is an update of her first version of Robinson Crusoe as a pantomime, which debuted 20 years ago. But there’s a longer tradition to it than that, insists the panto veteran, who has long made a study of the history of the form. “The first panto version was in London at the end of the 18th century – I didn’t direct that one, although I was in the junior chorus,” she quipped. This year’s update has given an opportunity for many topical references, she adds. “Plus, in 20 years I’ve changed my approach a little – perhaps this is a little more Canadianized.” But panto purists needn’t fear – King still has a strong a
grasp as ever of the particular balance of ingredients that make the Britishstyle seasonal treat tick. One is a strong dame – as personified by Cedargreen. “What a trouper,” King said. “He’s doing well – and even with a stinking cold he still made all the rehearsals, while keeping a safe distance from the rest of the cast.” Another key is an understanding that the cross-dressing in British-style panto tradition is a matter of having fun – not an exercise in method acting. “Lovely Erin is an awesome Robinson,” King said. “She’s makes a great boy because she’s very clearly a girl. She understands what it is to be a principal boy, with the hands-on-hips and the fishnets and heels, which in this case are a pair of rather fancy boots.” Also striking the right balance, King said, is DeMatteis (Mordred the Malignant in last year’s Sword In The Stone) as Blight, whose evil plan is to persuade Dame Kitty Crusoe that he’s a better skipper for her Crusoe’s Cruises business than her accident-prone son, Billy (RCTC regular Stephen Elchesen). “Tony totally gets what it is to be a villain who is also really, really silly. It’s hard to find someone who can walk that line – there still has to be an element of risk and menace there, or there’s no point.” It’s something King’s son, James, returning in his accustomed role as Demon King – this year in the guise of Davy Jones – also understands, she said. “He knows how to be scary and still be silly at the same time.” Claurien Zanoria, last year’s Guinevere, returns as principal girl in the role of Princess Friday of Lingalonga Island. “She’s a bubbly, cute personality – a sweet girl who works really hard,” enthused King. She notes that of the more than 40 in the cast, half are performers under the age of 20. “That’s one of the things we pride ourselves on with RCTC,” she said. “We have young people mentoring with professionals.” Regular admission is $23.95 plus box office charges, or $14.95 plus charges for children under 12.

Calendar for horse lovers An orgAnizAtion that finds new homes for retired race-
horses coming off the track at Fraser Downs presents its 2013 calendar – just in time for Christmas. Greener Pastures, the B.C. Standardbred Horse Adoption Society, is selling the calendars as a fundraiser. The society is dedicated to retraining and finding loving new homes for retired Standardbreds. Some of them never quite made it as race horses to begin with. Others earned thousands on the track during their careers. About 50 are adopted out each year. The society operates a rehabilitation centre in South Surrey, where there are an average of 10 horses in its care at any one time. Standardbreds are friendly, loving horses who thrive on having a job to do and try their best to please. With a little training and patience, most adapt well to the saddle. The calendar features some of the success stories of 2012. In July, a successfully adopted former racehorse named Solar Wind is seen happily frolicking, along with photos Don’t Say Anything and Urworstknightmare, a pretty bay who now goes by the sunnier Dreamfair. Then there’s barn favourite Luongo – a handsome guy with an easy-going personality – who recently found a new home. He’ll be living in Maple Ridge, where he’ll be a trail buddy for Dawn. The society is a registered charity that relies heavily on the generosity of the public. Tax deductible cash donations accepted. The calendars are $15. The society also sells T-shirts, caps and bumper stickers. Visit the Greener Pastures online store at www.greener-pastures.ca
Delta united in charity the Corporation of Delta’s employees raised a record-breaking $69,182 for the United Way of the lower Mainland – an increase of more than $9,000 from the previous year. ‘i am continually overwhelmed by the generosity of Delta staff,’ said Mayor lois Jackson (right).
