With her husband still missing after 13 years, a Delta woman’s son is now also gone
A mom’s plea: ‘Just bring my boy home’ by Kevin Diakiw THIRTEEN YEARS ago, Tracey Fry’s
husband went missing and never returned. And at the beginning of this month, her son has dropped from sight, leaving the family in a dreadful state of déja vu. On Valentine’s Day in 2000, Tracey Fry, a Delta resident, woke to find her husband Glenn Fry gone. The second she realized he was missing, she had an awful feeling he was gone for good. “I woke up in a start at 7 a.m. that morning (and) I had a really hard Kevin Fry feeling in my gut,” Tracey told The Leader Tuesday. Glenn Fry didn’t show up for work that day, and he remains missing. As to whether he left on his own volition – or met with foul play – Tracey is not sure. “Through the years, I’ve gone through everything that you can imagine,” she said. “There’s times when I think he’s gone, there’s times when I think he just skipped out.”

If 100 to 150 speakers address council, casino hearing could last more than 12 hours by Kevin Diakiw
EVAN SEAL / THE LEADER
IT’S ShAPING up to be one of the longest
nights Surrey council has seen in recent memory. City staff are “guesstimating” that on Monday, Jan. 14, there will be as many as 1,000 people packing city hall for a decision about a South Surrey casino application. Further, it’s estimated that 100 to 150 of those people will want to address council. If that many people take their full fiveminute time limit for speaking, the casino hearing would run in excess of 12 hours. Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts told The Leader last week she plans to carry the meeting through to the end rather than interrupt the process and continue it on a subsequent night. Watts said that’s out of respect for the people who come to share their thoughts. It will be up to council whether to vote on the project immediately following speakers’ comments. The wide-spread attention is regarding a plan to build a $100-million casino and entertainment complex on an 18-acre parcel of land at 10 Avenue and 168 Street. As a host city, Surrey stands to reap about $3 million annually in casino revenues. If approved, the slots at the existing casino in Newton at 7093 King George Blvd. will be shut down. Whether the bingo hall at that location stays or goes would be completely up to Gateway Casinos, which will be responsible for an upgrade of the Dianne Watts Newton site no matter what council decides on Monday, according to Surrey’s General Manager of Planning and Development Jean LaMontagne. Meanwhile, all eyes are now on the South Surrey casino. To go ahead it needs the blessing of the B.C. Lottery Corporation, which is looking for a nod from Surrey council. The public hearing is scheduled to start at 7 p.m., however, there are five other items on the council agenda prior to the casino. That means the casino application won’t likely be heard until 8 or 8:30 p.m. Some tips for people planning to attend: • Speakers must sign up, and the tables for registering will be open at 5:30 p.m. (Hint: if you want to speak early, get there early). • Speakers in favour will line up on one side of council chambers; those opposed on the other. The mayor will alternate hearing comments between pro and con. • Speakers will be limited to five minutes and are asked to keep it shorter if possible. • Council chambers will open at 7 p.m. and there’s only seating for about 140 in chambers. To get a seat, arrive early. • The city is asking that once you have spoken, leave the council chambers. Several viewing areas will be set up outside.

Missing men: ‘It’s heartbreaking’ From Page 1
Glenn Fry has been missing since 2000.
In either case, she knew in her heart from the outset that he wasn’t coming back. She doesn’t have that same feeling about her son Kevin Fry, who was last seen on Jan. 1. But she says it’s still hard to separate the search for her son with the fact that her husband is still missing without a trace. “It’s heartbreaking,” Tracey said. “It’s one thing to lose your husband, but to lose your son? My God, you didn’t think it could get any worse.” She’s pleading with the public
to keep an eye out for Kevin. “Just bring my boy home. Somebody bring my boy home.” Kevin Fry, a 20-year-old Caucasian, was reported missing on Jan. 4, three days after he was last seen in the area of 157 Street and 108 Avenue. He is 6’1”, 155 lbs, with brown/dirty blond hair and green eyes. When he was last seen, he was wearing a plaid shirt, ball cap, jeans, red-and-black checkered winter coat, and a red backpack. He has a tattoo of a sword with two snakes wrapped around it on his inner
left forearm. Kevin has no known medical health or addiction issues and did not pick up his last paycheque from his employer. It is unusual for him to fail to stay in contact with his family. He does not have a vehicle and uses transit or friends to get around. Tracey believes he may be in the Lower Mainland, however, he has relatives in Kamloops. Anyone with information about Kevin is asked to contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800222-8477 (TIPS).

Flu surge hits B.C. H3N2 usually a ‘more severe’ influenza strain
by Jeff Nagel A spike in flu cases to abnor-
mally high levels in late December has public health officials watchful in case the illness spreads even faster now that kids are back in school. The B.C. Centre for Disease Control said the province is seeing the highest levels of suspected influenza activity in a decade. The main flu virus circulating this year is H3N2, which is one of the three varieties covered by this year’s flu vaccine. The reopening of schools may mean even more potential for the virus to spread between students and then to homes. “It is a potential concern that children can facilitate the spread, they can amplify the spread,” epidemiologist Dr. Danuta Skowronski said. Kids are more susceptible to flu because they have less lifetime exposure to the various viruses than adults, she said. They also have richer social networks and they’re confined together in schools, making transmission more likely. The H3N2 virus generally tends to be “more severe” than other types, Skowronski said, but added it’s too early to say if this year’s flu cases are tending to be

it’s not too late to receive the flu vaccinne, health officials say. worse than normal. The virus has been in circulation in the human population since 1968 but constantly mutates to defeat the immunity of its hosts. There have also been several flu outbreaks at long-term care homes so far this season. Skowronski said it’s not too late to get the flu shot and strongly urged the elderly and those with chronic conditions or compromised immune sys-
tems to get it soon. She also recommends vulnerable groups get early treatment with antiviral medication within 48 hours of symptoms to reduce the risk of a dangerous flu bout. Skowronski said she’s not concerned about a reported shortage of Tamiflu antiviral medication, adding B.C. has enough stockpiled for high-risk patients. The flu season typically runs from November through April and Skowronski said a late-winter wave of flu cases is possible this year from a different flu virus. Health officials are also grappling with a new strain of norovirus, which changes its form every few years, resulting in more cases than usual. “Many people don’t have immunity to this new strain,” said Fraser Health spokesperson Tasleem Juma. “This is a very unpleasant virus but it usually passes within 24 to 48 hours.” The “very contagious” gastrointestinal infection causes vomiting and diarrhea. Officials have battled norovirus outbreaks already at Royal Columbian, Eagle Ridge and Vancouver General hospitals, prompting some ward closures. Juma said ward closures due to norovirus are normal each winter.
MRI at SMH to be replaced Machine damaged in flood at hospital’s ER
by Jeff Nagel An MRi scanner dam-
aged when Surrey Memorial Hospital’s ER was flooded in November will be replaced and not repaired. Fraser Health officials say they decided against fixing the old scanner at a cost of about $700,000 because it’s 11 years old and at the end of its useful life anyway. The insurance payout for the repair costs will instead be put against the estimated $2- to $3-million cost of a new MRI scanner and shield, said
Fraser Health executive director Rowena Rizzotti. “We were scheduled for a replacement [MRI] in the new year,” she said. “To invest in a repair that would then be replaced would not be as costeffective.” In late November, Surrey Memorial’s ER department was closed for two weeks after a water line break flooded it under several inches of water. It reopened Dec. 3. Exact insurance proceeds and whether it will come from the policies of Fraser Health or the responsible contractor is
still to be resolved. Damage and related costs from the flood is estimated at around $3 million. Meanwhile a mobile MRI unit is now up and running at SMH and will provide the same services as a stationary unit for the next three or four months until the new one can be ordered and set up. The portable unit was trucked from California at a rental cost of $100,000 per month. It means patients no longer have to go to the neary Jim Pattison

A sample of the new combined driver’s licence and health card. A ‘BC services Card’ without driving privileges will also be available.
New ID cards coming to prevent health fraud Driver’s licence and CareCard combined by Tom Fletcher The B.C. government is rolling out its new high-tech medical services cards starting Feb. 15, in an effort to phase out millions of CareCards in the hands of non-residents. The new cards will be combined with the B.C. driver’s licence, with a similar “BC Services Card” available to those who don’t drive. Residents will be required to re-enrol to renew the card every five years, whether they drive or not. Qualified residents can enrol in the Medical Services Plan at any provincial office that issues driver’s licences. There is no fee for the health services card only. The current $75 fee for a five-year driver’s licence renewal will apply to the new combined cards, discounted to $17 for seniors. There is no requirement to get the new card until your driver’s licence needs to be renewed. The government’s plan is to change over all
eligible B.C. residents between the ages of 19 and 74 to the new cards over the next five years. To be eligible for MSP coverage, you must be a citizen or approved permanent resident of Canada, living in B.C. at least six months of the year. Dependents must also be residents to be eligible for coverage. The health ministry announced the new card program in May 2011, after a review showed there were up to 9.1 million B.C. CareCards in circulation. The total population of B.C. is 4.5 million. Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid said the new card is designed to comply with B.C.’s information and privacy law, which restricts how personal data can be used and shared. That means ICBC and police have no access to medical files, and hospitals and medical offices have no access to driving records.

Can’t we just elect ‘none of the above’? Forget ‘smoke shacks,’ just quit WaYne Clark’s letter of Jan. 1 blames the
B.C. Liberals with a lot of things, and while not a particular Liberal fan, I’m sure the current “most likely” alternative is not likely to fare much better in the long-term planning and fiscal management department. Remember, Adrian Dix was in the Glen Clark government that brought you the $454-million fast ferries, something we all will continue to
pay for years to come. The old Pattullo Bridge was built by a Liberal government though, so at least in 1936 the Liberals thought ahead. Many of the other things we take for granted today, however, were brought to us by the longgone Social Credit. The George Massey Tunnel, Alex Fraser Bridge, Expo ’86 and the real estate develop-
ment it spurred, the first SkyTrains… all Socred legacies, with the last three all derided at the time by the NDP. They were against the Olympics too, weren’t they? I don’t see what other option we have in this province at the moment; can we vote “none of the above” and start again?

Protest no idle opportunity
aboriginal leaders and government bureaucrats have squandered too much time, money and energy playing the blame game. Idle No More has captured the imagination of Canadians. The aboriginal people, including the Métis and non-status Indians, need the support of ordinary hard-working law-abiding taxpaying Canadians if the politicians are going to become sufficiently motivated to get off their butts and modernize that out-dated, inefficient, incompetent, colonial-based
Anyone want to buy a bridge?
the Port Mann
Bridge appears to be the newest white elephant for Surrey and Langley taxpayers. Will drivers go back to using the bridge given ice bombs and black ice and who knows what’s next? How about faulty billing to credit cards and misreading of licence plates? Mary Polak, our illustrious B.C. Minister of Transportation, claims taxpayers will not be left holding the bag for new expenses because the contract states there will be no ice build-up on over-
head cables. However, logic would dictate that moisture from high above must go somewhere and that is likely onto the bridge deck. My suggestion is we go back to using the old bridge (until summer has arrived), or last I heard was some tourist got a good deal on the Brooklyn Bridge. The fast ferries sold for about $20 million. A good bridge auction could raise the money to get the 300 new buses required for our Surrey-Langley bus network. David Walters, Surrey

Before Idle No More spokespeople ride off in all directions, the so-called grassroots movement needs a national organization to articulate an action plan of short-term and long-term goals.

Hopefully the enthusiasm generated by
Idle No More will also focus on the day-today governance of reservations and thereby encourage self-reliance, accountability and pride. Hopefully, Stephen Harper’s government will view the enthusiasm generated by Idle No More as an opportunity for change and not as a political threat that must be destabilized, disassembled and destroyed.

No votes for three wishes letter Writer Mr. Sangha (“Three wishes for the new year,” The Leader, Jan. 1) is off his rocker on all three points. 1. Very few 15-year-olds are even remotely interested in politics. Raging hormones and testosterone dictate that. Why should a 15-year-old that cannot be either identified or punished as an adult
be allowed to vote? 2 .Why would we demand individuals vote who have neither any interest or knowledge about the process? 3. We have enough politicians on the public purse without doubling the cost to taxpayers. And the principle of electing the best person for the job is not based on ethnic-
ity or sex. It ain’t perfect as it is, but your wishes fulfilled Mr. Sangha, would include a number of uninterested, unqualified individuals in the process. Bad ideas. Rick Hobbs Delta
what Barry Mudge says in “Practical solution: build a gazebo for hospital smokers,” (Letters, The Leader, Jan. 3), we must focus much more on what smokers need, as opposed to what they want because, frankly, I don’t give a damn about what they want. Building a gazebo or any other structure on hospital property to accommodate smokers is not a practical solution. While most hospitals around the world are striving for 100-per-cent smoke-free property status (and an everincreasing number of them have achieved that), building such a structure – a “smoke shack” – would be a huge step backwards. Getting back to smokers’ needs vs. wants: What smokers need is nicotine. Bearing in mind that smoking is not addictive (nicotine, which occurs naturally in tobacco, is the most addictive drug known, but the actual act of smoking, per se, is nothing more than an albeit powerful habit), a much better solution would be for hospitals to provide, either free or for sale, any or all of the very wide range of NRTs (Nicotine Replacement Therapies) that are now on the market – from nicotine gum, lozenges, patches, rubs, implants, inhalers to, believe it or not, nicotine water – to name just a few. So smokers get their nicotine fix and, if they still feel the need to suck on something, well, the options there are pretty much endless too – anything and everything except a burning tube of sliced, diced and carcinogen-laden tobacco leaves, thank you very much. And the rest of us get the 100-per-cent smoke-free air that we need. Everybody’s needs are met. Problem solved.

There can never be safe pipelines

Yet another quake rocked B.C.’s northwest early Saturday. Thus, whenever the hollow assurances of oil pipeline “safety” are brought up by oil pipeline proponents, it should be noted that there can never be true pipeline safety, nor anything near it.

Save time When the new 10-lane bridge is complete, it will be twice the size of the old one, which will reduce congestion and save you time – you could cut your drive in half. Less idling also means less money spent at the gas pump, with some drivers saving up to a litre in fuel each day. A series of interchanges and overpass improvements provide faster, safer travel to and from the highway. With less congestion and more reliability, you’ll be able to better predict how long your drive will take and make sure you arrive on time.

Jail for man who attacked a bus driver, passenger Steven Fayant sentenced to 22 months by Monique Tamminga In front of a large contingent of
bus drivers and his parents, Steven Fayant was sentenced to 22 months in jail and three years probation in a Surrey courtroom on Tuesday. He was given the jail sentence for stabbing an innocent man who was getting off a transit bus in Aldergrove last February. Fayant was also sentenced to time served plus a day in jail for choking a bus driver a few days earlier in Surrey. He was given three years probation and numerous strict conditions after his release, including not being allowed to ride public transit without permission from his probation officer. Last year, the 20-year-old crack cocaine addict pleaded guilty to aggravated assault and assault. The Crown was asking for three years in jail and his defence lawyer asked for 14 months. Judge Paul Dohm sentenced Fay-
Alleged bank robber nabbed
ant to 33 months but brought it down to 22 months for time served. “This sends a message to the accused that random attacks on unsuspecting individuals will not be tolerated,” said Dohm. Upon Fayant’s release from jail he isn’t to have any contact with his victims and is not allowed to be in Langley City or in Aldergrove. The judge said that if Fayant refuses to take prescribed medication he will be forced to report to his probation officer daily. Outside the courtroom, Coast Mountain bus driver union representative Gavin Davies said the sentence was a “step in the right direction.” “It’s good the courts are taking these cases seriously,” said Davies. “The best way to deal with this is stiffer penalties. So the next time a rider is upset a bus is late, they will think twice about spitting on the driver or throwing coffee at them because it might land them in jail.”

Surrey RCMP arrested Robert John Paton on Wednesday night without incident in the City Centre area of Surrey. Police allege that he is responsible for several bank robberies throughout the region. Paton is currently in custody facing outstanding robbery charges in Vancouver. Additional charges are expected to be laid against him for alleged bank robberies in the Metro Vancouver area, including Surrey, Langley and Burnaby.

Letter reveals desire for guilty plea to manslaughter in wife’s murder Panghali, convicted nearly two years ago of murdering his pregnant wife, wanted to plead guilty to the lesser

charge of manslaughter, but then-B.C. Attorney General Wally Oppal nixed the deal. Details surrounding the planned plea and appointment of a special prosecutor in the Panghali case were released by the B.C. Criminal Justice Branch Monday. Panghali was charged in 2007 with the second-degree murder of his 30-year-old wife Manjit the year before. He was found guilty in 2011 and sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 15 years for strangling his wife and leaving her burned body on a South Delta shoreline. An appeal of his conviction was rejected last October. However, the documents released publicly this week reveal the Crown and Panghali’s lawyers had a deal worked out that he would plead guilty to manslaughter, primarily because there was little direct evidence – mainly circumstantial
– surrounding the circumstances of Manjit’s death. But Oppal disagreed with the plea bargain. “Having reviewed all the available evidence, I disagree with the view of the Branch,” reads a Feb. 10, 2009 letter from Oppal. “It is my opinion that there remains a strong, solid case of substance to present to the Court, and that there continues to be a substantial likelihood it is in the public interest to proceed with the prosecution on the charge of second degree murder.” Because of the differing views, a special prosecutor was appointed to take the case to trial – a step taken to “ensure there was no risk of real or perceived improper influence,” according to the Criminal Justice Branch. Jasmine Bhambra, Manjit Panghali’s sister, said her family was privy to the discussions about a plea deal. At the time, she recalls
Mukhtiar Panghali being taken aback that her sister’s killer might face a lesser charge and punishment, but understood the difficult position Crown prosecutors were in. “If we had a different outcome, I’d probably be singing a different song,” said Bhambra on Tuesday. “We’re just happy with the result that we have. I think about her every day and that’s enough.” The details about the special prosecutor and plea deal were not released until now to “safeguard the integrity of the trial and any associated appeals process, as well as the fair
trial interest of Mr. Panghali,” said a Criminal Justice Branch release. In finding Panghali guilty, Justice Heather Holmes said the evidence, while perhaps circumstantial, showed beyond a reasonable doubt that Mukhtiar killed Manjit. Holmes had “no doubt” it was Mukhtiar seen on gas station surveillance video buying a lighter and newspaper on the night Manjit disappeared and pointed to the fact the killer used her cellphone for months after her death, despite claiming he hadn’t seen her after she left for a yoga class on Oct. 18, 2006. Holmes also denied that the charge be downgraded to manslaughter, saying that although Manjit’s strangulation may have been brief, it was extremely forceful. “Mr. Panghali meant to cause bodily harm,” said Holmes. “... and he knew it would likely cause death.”

Y Murder suspect no R A U N A J stranger to the system EARANCE CL
Jason Brewer accused of killing Cole Manning on Dec. 31 by Monique Tamminga The man charged in a New
Year’s Eve murder near the Surrey-Langley border was no stranger to the criminal justice system. He was on probation for assaulting his mother with a knife at the time of his arrest, and currently faces charges in relation to a car crash that permanently injured two people. Jason Brewer, 24, is charged with the second-degree murder of a Cloverdale man police are calling “his friend,” Cole Manning, 40. He was shot to death in a Langley basement suite in the 19800-block of 69 Avenue in the early morning hours of Dec. 31, 2012. Brewer led police on a short pursuit and it took several police cars ramming his vehicle to affect his arrest. Brewer was taken down on 264 Street, near the Greater Vancouver Zoo. The following day he will be back in court for a pre-trial conference in connection with
a 2009 multi-vehicle crash on Highway 10 that left two victims with life-long, serious injuries. In that incident, he is charged with two counts of criminal negligence causing bodily harm and two counts of dangerous driving causing bodily harm, with the Crown alleging he deliberately drove his vehicle into oncoming traffic with the intention of killing himself. Originally, Brewer pleaded guilty to those charges. But soon after, he applied to change that plea to not guilty and take the charges to trial. In June 2012, provincial court Judge P.D. Gulbransen ruled in Brewer’s favour, allowing him to withdraw his guilty plea. The crash he is accused of causing occurred on Nov. 15, 2009, at about 3:20 p.m. Brewer was driving a pick-up truck eastbound on Highway 10 near 192 Street. Brewer’s vehicle hit an oncoming car on its front passenger side, then collided head-on with a second vehicle, a GMC Jimmy,
occupied by two people. The pick-up then “barrel-rolled” over three vehicles which were travelling behind the GMC. The occupants in the Jimmy both suffered “devastating, permanent, life-long injuries,” noted Gulbransen. Brewer was also trapped in the truck, suffering a broken jaw and minor injuries. Charges weren’t sworn until March 2011. By then, Brewer had been on bail for charges of robbing a Mac’s store in Langley in 2009. His mom posted his $2,500 bail. Brewer’s mother took back her bail money after her son assaulted her with a knife. Brewer was found guilty of attacking her and was sentenced to one day in jail and 18 months probation. For the two counts of robbery in connection to the Mac’s store theft, Brewer was found guilty in July 2012, and given one day in jail, 18 months probation and a lifetime firearms ban. His next court appearance for the Dec. 31, 2012 murder charge is Jan. 16.

New ERT for Delta
A decAde after it was
launched, a municipal police emergency response team has folded. This month, the Municipal Integrated Emergency Response Team (MIERT) has disbanded, leaving Delta, Port Moody,
Abbotsford and New Westminster looking for new partnerships. MIERT, often referred to by the public as the SWAT team, was formed in 2003 to respond to high-risk situations in all four cities. These included drug busts, gang-related arrests and armed stand-offs.

The team was composed of officers from each of the participating municipal police departments. Delta says it is now partnering, at least in the short term, with the Vancouver emergency response team to augment an eight-member team already based in Delta. While the RCMP is closer – policing the neighbouring community of Surrey – it was felt the temporary partnership with Vancouver was more efficient.
“There was a consulting group that looked at all the avenues we could take,” Const. Ciaran Feenan said. “We believe at this time that Vancouver is our best option.” Delta spent $390,000 on MIERT last year, and is budgeting the same for its partnership with Vancouver for this year.

ber that hit a financial institution this week. On Monday, just after 7 p.m., Delta police responded to a robbery at a bank in the 7300-block of Scott Road. The suspect entered the bank, produced a gun and demanded money. He made off with an undisclosed amount of cash. He ran to an awaiting car, which was found a short time later and was determined to have been stolen from Surrey. No employees at the bank were injured. The suspect was described as a male possibly Asian or First Nations, 27 to 32 years old, pimpled or pockedmarked face, 5’6” to 5’8”, weighing about 140 lbs. The suspect was wearing blue jeans, black coat with the hood pulled up over his head, with the hood having a fur on the edge of the hood, black shoes and black gloves. If you have any information about the suspect or crime, call the Delta Police Department at 604-946-4411, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-3477 (TIPS).

Native protesters call for action
Hundreds of protesters held a peaceful rally and drum circle in support of the Idle no More protest movement saturday at the Peace Arch border.
Idle No More comes to Peace Arch border by Melissa Smalley Hundreds of protesters
marched at the Peace Arch Saturday in support of the growing Idle No More movement. The peaceful demonstration at the Douglas border crossing included supporters from both sides of the border and as far away as Vancouver Island. Many wore traditional aboriginal clothing, carried flags and played drums. The Idle No More movement started in November in opposition to the omnibus federal bill C-45, introduced by the Harper government in October. The bill, which passed into law in December, implements changes to the Indian Act, the Navigation Protection Act and the Environment Assessment Act, and has been criticized by opponents due to lack of consultation with First Nations.
Marilyn Borgen, a South Surrey resident of Cree-MĂŠtis heritage, brought her aboriginal foster children to Saturdayâ€™s demonstration. â€œItâ€™s time to take a stand,â€? Borgen said. â€œThe Harper government should smarten up. I donâ€™t think they should take the rights away from the natives.â€? The movement has gained momentum in recent weeks since Theresa Spence, chief of the Attawapiskat First Nation in Ontario, began a hunger strike in December, seeking a meeting with Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Harper announced last week he would meet this Friday with Spence and members of the Assembly of First Nations. Speaking to the enthusiastic crowd at the Peace Arch demonstration â€“ one of several protests to take place Saturday across Canada and the U.S. â€“ Joan
INGSTONE LIVDenture Clinic
Phillip said she expects support for the movement continue to grow in the coming months. â€œThis is just the beginning,â€? the spouse of Grand Chief Stewart Phillip said. â€œI honestly feel this is going to be a long, hot summer. We donâ€™t want any more meetings, we want action.â€?

Real estate to pick up in 2013: Economist The end is in sight for ‘mild market correction,’ Credit Union Central’s Helmut Pastrick says by Jeff Nagel Home prices dipped in
much of the Lower Mainland last year but not by nearly enough to count as a bursting of what some had considered a real estate bubble. The composite benchmark price of all residential property in Greater Vancouver dropped 5.8 per cent from the price peak in May to the end of 2012. That represented a 2.3-per-cent one-year drop from December of 2011, according to the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver. “It’s a mild market correction,” said Credit Union Central economist Helmut Pastrick. He predicts a continued soft real estate market for the next several months before buying and prices perk up in the second half of the year. He said the recent decline in prices may also help draw some prospective buyers
Fraser Valley real estate Board president scott olson called the last half of 2012 a ‘mexican standoff’ when it came to realty sales, with buyers holding out for deals and sellers taking their homes off the market. back into the property market. Greater Vancouver Real Estate Board president Eugen Klein said the “modest” change in home
prices and the steeper 22-per-cent drop in overall sales reflected a “collective hesitation” of home buyers and sellers. The benchmark price
for detached houses in the Greater Vancouver area was down 2.7 per cent year-overyear to $904,000. Composite residential prices fell the most in 2012
on the Sunshine Coast (-6.3 per cent), Richmond (-5.3 per cent) and Vancouver’s west side (-2.8 per cent.) Areas that gained yearover-year included Port Moody (up three per cent), Pitt Meadows (up 2.6 per cent) and Coquitlam (up 1.3 per cent.) The average single detached homeowner in Greater Vancouver saw an 18-per-cent gain over the past five years, but apartment owners actually lost money – 1.3 per cent – over the same period. The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board (FVREB), which includes Surrey, White Rock and North Delta, reported a benchmark detached house price of $539,000 – up 1.2 per cent from a year ago. Townhouses were down 2.2 per cent and apartments were up 1.6 per cent. “The last half of 2012 was like a Mexican standoff,” said FVREB President Scott Olson. “Buyers kept
hoping for greater price drops while sellers who didn’t have to sell just took their home off the market rather than lower their price.” Sales in the Fraser Valley were down 11 per cent for the year.
Benchmark prices, one-year percentage change: Greater Vancouver • Detached house – $904,200 (- 2.7 %) • Attached – $450,900 (- 2.6 %) • Apartment – $361,200 (- 1.9 %) Fraser Valley • Detached house – $539,000 (+1.2 %) • Attached – $296,400 (-2.2 %) • Apartment – $200,100 (+1.6 %)

2013 to be the year of remarkable changes
Morningstar Homes photo
Bob de Wit, CEO of the Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association, says that Metro Vancouver will see “a greater utilization of the buildable ... land-base” in 2013.
By Kerry Vital
Rob Newell photos
The Lower Mainland will continue to see the influence of rapid transit in 2013, with communities such as Surrey’s City Centre and Richmond continuing to grow. Home construction will also continue, with a trend towards smaller spaces.
it lends a touch of elegance that you cannot get from paint. Several new home developments have integrated wallpaper into their show homes. Similarly, classic and traditional decor is still king, with chic moulding, hardwood flooring and cool paint colours. “People like a timeless, classic look,” Gallop says.
He sees that trend continuing, saying “look for greater utilization of the buildable Lower Mainland land-base.” When it comes to home decor, wallpaper is making a comeback. Sarah Gallop of Sarah Gallop Design Inc. notes that while many homeowners have something akin to posttraumatic stress disorder from bad wallpaper in the 1980s,
As we usher in 2013, it might be time to consider where the real estate market is going. Whether it’s our population, home decor or the size of our dwelling, some professionals in the industry have some ideas on what we’ll see this year. “We are very fortunate to have a strong immigrant community,” says Michael Hungerford of Hungerford Properties. “It makes for constant change. That’s what Vancouver is about.” The past year has seen the continued rapid growth of Surrey and Richmond in particular, Hungerford says. He believes that this will continue, and is happy to say that Hungerford Properties will be part of it with a new project in Richmond. “Richmond has a really visionary plan,” he says, adding that the Canada Line has really contributed to this. With a large Asian population in the city centre itself, he sees the face of Richmond being quite different in the future. “2013 will have some remarkable changes to food, culture, shopping, everything,” he says. “It will be really exciting to see.” But it’s not just the cities themselves that will be seeing a few changes next year. “The trend over the last year and moving forward is toward smaller housing forms,” says Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association CEO Bob de Wit. “Whether it’s microsuites in condominium developments or progressively smaller lots sizes for detached homes.”

Metro faces image hurdle Regional district battles critics, public ignorance
by Jeff Nagel Metro Vancouver has
an image problem.
Too few residents know what the regional district is or that its $635-million budget is
mainly geared to deliver drinking water, treat sewage and deal with garbage.

Polling conducted by Metro last year found just eight per cent of residents knew what it was – 13 per cent knew it by its formal name, the Greater Vancouver Regional District – and many of those who were aware confused it with TransLink. “We have some work to do,” Metro board chair Greg Moore said in a year-end interview. He said the region will aim to better communicate its role, without spending any extra money. “Metro Vancouver needs to do a better job of letting people know about the billion litres of water that we clean up a day – and that nothing goes wrong with it.” Instead, he admits, the regional district is often criticized as too focused on green initiatives and immersed in decisions such as whether to ban smoking in regional parks. And then there’s the ongoing debate on building a new garbage incinerator, fought by Fraser Valley opponents who fear more air pollution. It’s sure to be a source of continued controversy this year, as prospective partner firms are identified and a list of proposed sites is made public by fall. Moore admits to “frustration” with some opponents who portray the waste-to-energy project as a costly boondoggle in the making without talking to regional officials or proposing a viable alternative. The Canadian Taxpayers Federation and the Independent Contractors and Businesses
Association of B.C. have both slammed the expected $450-million price tag. “I find it disappointing when these groups decide to come out and comment they don’t bother to talk to Metro Vancouver,” Moore said, arguing other options are not necessarily cheaper. “A landfill is over a billion dollars over that same lifespan when you look at the total life cycle of the project. And you have to deal with the liability of having garbage in the ground for the next 100 years.” Moore notes Metro’s garbage volumes are falling as the region’s ban on residential organics disposal kicks in and cities provide curbside pickup of food waste. The reduced waste flow means Metro has already scaled back the size of the expected waste-fired plant and Moore said the region is on target to slash the amount of garbage dumped at the Vancouver Landfill in Delta to below 100,000 tonnes per year by 2020. Metro has yet to face a major test of its new Regional Growth Strategy – the master plan for development across the region signed in 2011 and cornerstone of efforts to contain sprawl and ensure livability. But cities should soon begin submitting their regional context statements for board approval. They’re the contracts by which each municipality pledges to ensure local land-use plans conform with the designations and goals in the regional strategy.

The creative ‘attack’ that changed her life An occupational therapist finds her own therapy in writing children’s books by Bronwyn Scott
rudy Davies has always painted recreationally when brief periods of creative momentum, or “craft attacks,” as she calls them, are too strong to resist. Recently, for medical reasons, Davies has been unable to work, and her bouts of creativity have taken on another dimension. The occupational therapist found her own therapy in art and one particular “attack” turned out a project she didn’t know she had in her. Butterfly Dreams: Milo’s Adventure is the children’s book that resulted and has Davies sharing her work all over the Lower Mainland. She gave a presentation on illustrating children’s books in October at a Thursday Artist Talks session held by the Surrey Art Gallery Association, and she’s been busy reading her book to elementary school children – with more readings scheduled this month. Butterfly Dreams tells the tale of a Trudy Davies young boy who misses his butterfly friend he met in the summer. With the onset of winter, the boy is left sullen, until one night he observes an eagle out his window and falls into a peaceful sleep. The eagle sweeps him off into a nighttime dreamland and together they explore the natural wonders of the world, which Davies illustrated with original paintings. The idea of writing a children’s book had been floating around in Davies’ mind for a few months when she sat down spontaneously and began to write a poem. “It just flowed out of my hands,” she recalled. “I was amazed because I hadn’t written a poem… probably since first-year university, which was many moons ago,” she says, laughing. The mother of two grown daughters, 24 and 26, Davies laughs often. A butterfly pendant around her neck and pewter earrings, shaped as feathers, accent her warm features. She speaks with hesitation, but concisely once she finds her words. “I express myself in writing more easily,” she says, adding that although creative writing is a relatively new enterprise for her she wrote “many, many reports” throughout her career. What she likes about creative writing is sharing beauty, “being able to make people smile, laugh, touching their feelings in a positive way… those things touch me in a positive way,” she said. When Davies shared the poem with her family,
“i express myself in writing more easily.”
eVan SeaL / the Leader
Trudy Davies published her first children’s book, Butterfly Dreams: Milo’s Adventure, last year and a sequel is already in the works.
her daughter was a source of encouragement. She vividly remembered bedtime stories her mother told her when she was young about a magic butterfly that would whisk her off on flying, wondrous adventures and lull her into a happy sleep – and she loved it. The theme would soon become a narrative for children, with “Butterfly Dreams” leading into the story. Her daughter suggested she paint a picture for every verse, which Davies did, but one stumped her and she didn’t know how to illustrate it. Her daughter picked up a brush and the result is a mystic night scene with a brilliant moon casting light for a lone ship out at sea. Creative talent runs in the family, it seems. Butterfly Dreams was a year in the works but since its inception last February, hundreds of
schoolchildren now know about Milo and his adventures. Davies has been visiting elementary schools to share Butterfly Dreams with kids even before it was published. She wanted to gauge their reaction, halfexpecting their attention to wane and for them to become fidgety. She was astounded with their spellbound response. “I think I’ve had one wiggler!” she says. Their enthusiasm motivated Davies to seek publication. These days she has no trouble putting thoughts to paper. “I started writing… and it hasn’t stopped,” she says. Butterfly Dreams: Milo’s Adventure is available on Amazon.ca for $11.90 and a sequel is in the works.

THOSE CRAZY kids from the Arts Club’s hit Sexy Laundry are back. And this time Henry (Andrew Wheeler) and Alice (Beatrice Zeilinger) are camping – sort of – at Surrey Arts Centre’s Main Stage from Jan. 15-26. In Henry and Alice: Into the Wild, the couple is forced to examine their relationship in the tangle of the wilderness – including collapsing tents, uninvited guests (Alice’s free-spirited sister, played by Deborah Williams), and their own particular style of alfresco “cuisine.” Will they discover how to survive a true mid-life crisis?

More travel coming for B.C. champs Surrey skip leads Langley club to junior men’s provincial curling title by Gary Ahuja A lOng DistAnCe relationship has paid off. All season, the curling quartet of skip Tyler Klymchuk of Surrey and lead Rhys Gamache — who are both out of the Langley Curling Club — and Victoria Curling Club’s Corey Chester and Sanjay Bowry, the team’s third and second, respectively, have ferried back and forth between the Lower Mainland and Victoria. They are coached by Victoria’s Todd Troyer. Chester and Bowry would typically come over on Wednesdays so the team could play their league matches out in New Westminster. And on Sundays, it would be Klymchuk and Gamache’s turn to visit Victoria, catching an early ferry, training all
day, and then returning home. But it all paid off as the quartet captured the Tim Horton’s junior men’s provincial championships. The event, for curlers 20 years old and younger, was held Jan. 1 to Jan. 6 at the Coquitlam Curling Club. “That was definitely one of the goals that we set for ourselves at the start of the year,” Klymchuk said. “We have put in a lot of hard work, a lot of ferry trips, and it definitely feels good to win.” The Klymchuk rink went 7-0 )won-loss) in the round robin. “We just went into each game with a game plan and tried to execute it as best we could,” Klymchuk said. “We were fortunate enough to come out with a bunch of wins.” In the provincial finals on Sunday night,
the team faced Langley Curling Club’s Tardi rink, which is made up of skip Tyler Tardi, third Jordan Tardi, second Nicholas Meister and lead Zachary Umbach. They are coached by Paul Tardi. The Klymchuk rink scored four in the second end and never looked back, prevailing 9-4. “Corey (Chester) made a real key triple in the second end to leave us lying four in the house,” Klymchuk described. “That gave us quite the edge to the game.” The Tardi rink (the Tardi family is from Cloverdale) was 5-2 and in third place after the round robin, but defeated the secondplace Henderson rink 13-6. The Klymchuk rink will now spend the next three weeks preparing for the junior national curling championships, which will

be held Feb. 2 to Feb. 10 in Fort McMurray, Alta. “We will keep doing our practices, tweaking a few things, making minor adjustments and just make sure we are ready to go when February rolls around,” Klymchuk said. Jordan and Tyler Tardi will join a third Cloverdale curler, Rhett Hildenbrandt this weekend at the Langley Curling Club where they’ll compete for a berth at the Juvenile Curling Provincials in Prince George in March. Next weekend, Jordan, Tyler, Rhett and his brother Brad represent Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary at the high school playdowns at the Tunnel Town Curling Club in hopes of qualifying for the high school curling provincials in Kamloops.

Valley West gets first win over Cariboo by Rick Kupchuk After three close
losses in as many games to the third place team in the BC Hockey Major Midget League, the Valley West Hawks managed to defeat the Cariboo Cougars in their final meeting of the season. The Hawks doubled the Cougars 4-2 Sunday afternoon at the CN Centre in Prince George, maintaining their sixth-place standings in the elite league for 15-17 year-olds. Cole Plotnikoff of Surrey and Carter Dickson, a call-up from Semiahmoo Minor Hockey, scored firstperiod goals to give the Hawks a 2-0 lead. Cariboo got one back before the first intermission, but Plotnikoff deflected a shot from Cloverdale’s Parker Wotherspoon in the Cougars goal for a 3-1 Valley West lead midway through the second. Leading 3-2 after 40 minutes, the Hawks got an insurance goal from Rhett Wilcox of Surrey with 15 minutes to play. The win came in the second of two games last weekend in Prince George. Cariboo defeated the Hawks 3-1 Saturday, with Jake Fletcher of Surrey getting the lone Valley West goal to briefly tie the game 1-1. The Cougars scored twice in the last six minutes of play to get the win. Luke Stripp was in
the Hawks goal in both games, making a combined 56 saves. Valley West remains at .500 on the season
with a 10-10-6 (wonlost-tied) record, tied with the fifth-place Vancouver Canadians on points, but having
played two more games. The Hawks will play the Canadians twice in Richmond next weekend.

All-Bowl honour Surrey’s Covington excels at Rice University
by Rick Kupchuk A victory in the
15TH ANNUAL 15TH ANNUAL
Armed Forces Bowl in Fort Worth, Texas has capped a solid first football season at Rice University for Surrey’s Christian Covington. The defensive tackle had one of his most productive games of the season in the Dec. 28 bowl game, making five solo tackles and one assisted tackle in a 33-14 win by the Rice Owls over the Air Force Academy Falcons. He also had a quarterback sack, his fourth of the season. His efforts earned him a place on the USA Today All-Bowl Team, announced Tuesday. “Covington was the key factor behind Rice’s ability to slow down Air Force’s running game, which entered the Armed 8 Forces Bowl ranked No. 2 nationally in rushing yards per game,” wrote USA Today’s Paul Myerberg.
christian covington Covington signed with the Owls in February, 2011, just months after leading the Vancouver College Fighting Irish to a Subway Bowl provincial championship.

Eagles offence outguns Bearcats A win for Kwantlen
by Rick Kupchuk PlAying their first
game in PACWEST league play in more than a month, the Kwantlen Eagles women’s basketball team seemed at the top of their game last Friday in Abbotsford. Three players scored in double digits to help the Eagles to a 67-42 victory over the Columbia Bible College (CBC) Bearcats, improving their record to 5-4 (won-loss), tied for third place in the eight-team league with the Quest Kermodes and Vancouver Island Mariners. “We had a great start and pushed the basketball up the court to get some easy baskets,” said Eagles head coach Dan Nayebzadeh. “It was great to get back to league games, we

Kwantlen: Women win, men fall in overtime From page 32 have a competitive road ahead.” Six of the eight teams will qualify for the playoff tournament, and with a two-game lead over two teams tied for seventh, Kwantlen should be able to advance to the postseason if their play remains at its current level. Christina Brown had a huge game, hitting six three-point shots to finish with a game-high 23 points. The firstyear point guard from Langley also had six steals, three rebounds and a pair of assists. Haeley Williams added 14 points along with three rebounds and four steals, while Jessica Villadiego contributed 10 points, seven assists, six steals and three rebounds. Samantha McPhail grabbed 14 rebounds to lead the Eagles on the
boards, while also scoring seven points. The Eagles will host two rivals next weekend at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Surrey. Tomorrow (Friday), the first-place Capilano Blues (8-1) will be the visitors. Quest will be the opponents on Saturday night. Kwantlen’s men’s team had a chance to hang on to sole possession of fifth place, but are now in a three-way tie after falling 108-107 in overtime to the Bearcats in Abbotsford. Now at 3-6, the Eagles are even with Capilano and CBC. Kwantlen led 48-42 at halftime, and held a lead late in the game until a three-point shot by the Bearcats at the buzzer knotted the score 98-98 and forced overtime. Three graduates of local high schools were part of a group of four players handling most of the scoring. Ali Bosir (Princess Margaret)
recorded a double-double, netting 22 points and adding to his PACWEST rebounding lead with 26 boards. Jag Takhar (Guildford Park) added another 25 points, while Aaron Ram (Seaquam) contributed 20. Chris Arcangel of Toronto, in his second year in an Eagles uniform, scored 24 points while earning five assists and nine rebounds. “It seems that both teams could not miss shooting from the field. This was the first game after the break, so I was expecting a much lower scoring game,” said Kwantlen head coach Stefon Wilson. “We have to keep our offense playing at a high level and improve on the defensive side of the ball.” The men will also host Capilano and Quest at Kwantlen on the weekend. The women tip-off at 6 p.m., following by the men at 8 p.m.
Andre ringuette / 2013 iiHF World Junior CHAMPionSHiP
Tyler Wotherspoon (26) chases a Russian opponent during Saturday’s bronze medal game.
Just short of a medal Cloverdale’s Wotherspoon played for Team Canada
by Rick Kupchuk IT WaS assumed by most being selected to play for
Canada at the World Junior Hockey Championships was worth a medal. Tyler Wotherspoon of Cloverdale was one of the 21 members of Team Canada to come up one position short of the podium in Ufa, Russia, falling 6-5 in overtime to the host country Saturday. It was the first time since 1998 that Canada finished out of the medals, placing fourth at the 10-team championship tournament. “Fourth place for Canada is unacceptable,” said Steve Spott, head coach of Canada following the loss Saturday. “Unfortunately that’s something we’re going to have to deal with and we’re all going to have to answer questions too.” Canada had a perfect start to the tournament, winning all four round robin games to place first in their pool and earn a bye through the quarterfinal round of the playoffs. But the wheels fell off in the playoff round, with a 5-1 loss to the U.S.A. in the semifinal round before the loss to the Russians in the bronze medal match. Canada fell behind 3-1 after just eight minutes of play, but rallied from three deficits to force overtime. But despite a 45-25 shots on goal advantage, they were knocked from the tournament podium when the Russians scored 95 seconds into extra time. “Today was a tough game,” said Spott. “I thought our players played extremely hard, but at the end of the day when you look at the big picture, the end result is unacceptable for our country.” Wotherspoon played in all six games for Canada, scoring one goal (in the tournament-opening 9-3 win over Germany) and adding one assist (in a 6-3 victory over Slovakia). The 19-year-old defenceman has returned to Oregon, where he will rejoin the Portland Winterhawks of the Western Hockey League. In 29 games played this season, he has three goals and 23 points. His plus-minus rating of plus-34 is second best on the team. n Surrey’s Riley Stadel was a member of Team Pacific, which won four of five games to place fifth at the 10-team World Under-17 Hockey Challenge Dec. 29 to Jan. 4 in Quebec. Stadel, a five-foot-11, 183 pound defenceman, played in all five games, earning four minor penalties.
