Search is on for new casino site Delta, Langley, White Rock and First Nations on BCLC radar

BOAZ JOSEPH / THE LEADER

North Delta’s Danielle Kisser is ranked 15th in the world in her women’s para-swimming category.

by Jeff Nagel SOUTH-OF-FRASER communities from Delta to Langley will now be considered for a new casino to replace the South Surrey proposal narrowly rejected by Surrey council. B.C. Lottery Corp. president and CEO Michael Graydon said a call for expressions of interest from nearby communities is likely and would include White Rock and First Nations such as the Semiahmoo band, which has indicated some interest. “If you circle that South Surrey/White Rock area, we would certainly entertain any opportunities in communities like that,” he said. “We’re very open to any opportunities that may potentially exist now that Surrey has decided they don’t want it.”

First Nations host some gaming centres in B.C., including one on the Sea-to-Sky Highway near Squamish, and receive 10 per cent of gaming profits in the same way as other host communities. Surrey would have received an extra $3.1 million in gaming profits per year from the defeated casino project at 168 Street and 10 Avenue – nearly doubling what it now receives from Fraser Downs and Newton. The province took in more than $1.5 billion in slot machine and table game revenue from casinos in 2011-12.

Slots to stay in Newton

Thursday, January 24, 2013 Surrey/North Delta Leader 5

Rundown mall at 7093 King George Blvd. to be renovated by Kevin Diakiw Surrey reSidentS will not

get another say on whether the slots remain at a Newton casino, according to the head of the B.C. Lottery Corp. (BCLC). Gateway Casinos and Entertainment recently installed 150 penny slots at the Newton Square Bingo Country at 7093 King George Blvd. They were there temporarily, while Surrey council rendered a decision on whether the gaming licence would be transferred to a Gateway-planned mega casino in South Surrey. On Saturday morning, city council voted that down. It leaves the Newton facility still

running on a temporary licence, but it was unclear whether BCLC would require the blessing of Surrey council before allowing a permanent licence. Not a chance. Still calming from the shock of having the South Surrey entertainment complex rejected by council, BCLC President and CEO Michael Graydon told The Leader Tuesday he anticipates plans for the Newton casino will forge ahead. Surrey has already conducted all the public consultations required for that gaming licence, Graydon said. Under an agreement with the city, Gateway has to get busy renovating that mall now that the South Surrey site has been rejected.

The agreement states that “Gateway will obtain a building permit by May 1, 2013 and thereafter proceed with construction in a timely manner through to completion of a redevelopment of the existing Newton Bingo Hall site,� according to a corporate report to council. It allows for the construction of a new building that will “house a Community Gaming Centre including 150 slot machines, for which a Community Gaming Centre license has already been approved by BCLC.� The only way Newton will be rid of its casino is if Gateway and BCLC agree on another location in another municipality.

Surrey/North Delta Leader 7

Casino gamble paid off – for most I really dId not know which

way the casino vote might go. That uncertainty is borne out by the 5-4 decision. I congratulate Mayor Dianne Watts for casting the deciding vote against it. Double congratulations, what the heck. It is rare for politicians to forego development in favour of wishes of area residents. I am glad for the decision. Why? Because the casino was a wrong fit for the rural nature of the area. I guess the location was selected because of cheaper land. I don’t live anywhere near it. I am not against a big development. It would be more suitable in an already commercial or industrial area. I also congratulate the area residents for coming together in an almost unbelievable way to oppose the proposal. There is no question they worked very hard to get the result they desired.   Dave Bains, Surrey

Giving in to the minority as a resIdent of Surrey, I was

thoroughly disappointed in the decision by mayor and council not to proceed with the proposed South Surrey entertainment complex. I was able to attend both nights of the public hearings and do not understand the rationale of the decision. In 2010, when this area was proposed to be rezoned, there was support for this plan. Now, in 2013, there is still support for the plan. The only difference is that there are a few “passionate and engaged” residents of South Surrey who have come forward. They mentioned they represented 5,000 residents that signed a petition. Of the 450,000-plus residents of Surrey and the 75,000plus in the area of South Surrey, the 5,000 that were against the project is less than 15 per cent of the population in South Surrey and less than two per cent of the population in Surrey. I refuse to believe the mayor and council – who are responsible for the best interests of the entire city – succumbed to needs of the few instead of the needs of the many. Over past few years, I have seen the City of Surrey grow and what the mayor and council have done for the city. The new recy-

letter writers for the most part support surrey Council’s 5-4 decision to reject a proposed gambling complex in south surrey. cling program, new community developments such as Morgan Creek, Morgan Crossings, Clayton Heights, City Centre – I commend them for their perspective on the future of this city. However, the city can only sustain itself if it has employment opportunities. In a time where most families are struggling to find a work/life balance, can people continue to live in Surrey and work elsewhere? How is the city going to pay for everything it has done or needs to do? Will my property taxes be raised so high that it does not make sense for me and my family to live here? How are we going to attract amenities like a hotel, conference/convention centre, and theatre without taxpayers having to pay? James Park

Happy for a surprise win CongratulatIons to all of us in Surrey and White Rock who went to bat to protect our community and, unbelievably, came out winners against the B.C. Lottery Corporation and big government. Kudos also to Mayor Dianne

Watts and Surrey council for listening to the clearly expressed wishes of the people of the Peninsula. As for Minister Rich Coleman having a hissy fit, huffing and puffing about Surrey wasting his time and money, thanks for reminding us once again of his government’s ugly arrogance. It kind of makes me think of that HST debacle – same deceptive way of operating: keeping the public in the dark until the last moment and then springing it on them. And then to top it off, the same arrogant refusal to take people seriously when they tell you they’re not buying your little surprise deal.

people know casinos are bad news for family-orientated communities, and bring heartbreak and misery to untold numbers of mothers, fathers and precious children I am so impressed Surrey councillors, and especially Mayor Dianne Watts, who voted wisely for Surrey families. Well done. I trust we can make similar wise choices to open far fewer liquor stores for the same reasons, as they seem to be spreading like the plague.

Bill Piket, White Rock

I was glad to see the proposed casino turned down. I believe, like it appears the majority of residents did, that this huge complex and gaming would alter the community forever and it is quite unnecessary. What disturbs me is that in the newspaper articles it sounds like the elected council wishes to take the credit or lack of credit for turning this down. If I understand the way these elected officials are supposed to operate, they are to listen to people in their ridings and vote for what

A vote for stronger families I thank god the South Surrey

casino bid was rejected. Many are very excited for the thousands of families who have been spared from the trap of gambling. It’s good news that more B.C. families will stay together as a result of losing less money to gambling addiction. Most sane

Andrew King, Surrey

They listened, they voted properly

the majority has asked. It appears many vote for what they think to be good, maybe good for their career or good for them in a selfserving way. I am going to pay close attention during the next election to steer away from those council members that appeared to disregard the wishes of the majority of residents and only vote for their personal choices. I think these people destroy the very fabric of democracy. Unfortunately in politics you see personal gain far too much for the “hidden” reasons to enter into it. Thank you Ms. Watts and others for your sincere and honest assessment.   Ron Howarth

Custom snow sweepers for Port Mann Bridge Gadgets to prevent repeat of falling ‘ice bombs’ by Jeff Nagel The cables that hold up the new Port Mann Bridge will be outfitted with devices to clear snow buildup and prevent a repeat of the falling “ice bombs” incident that terrorized motorists late last year. The custom snow sweepers are two feet long and consist of a set of wheels, scrapers and brushes and will be raised and lowered along the cables during wintry weather to remove any ice and snow buildup. They’re being installed on 152 of the 288 bridge cables that cross the roadway starting this week. Transportation Minister Mary Polak said they’ll initially be positioned at the bottom of the cables and be manually winched up to the top and dropped back down to clear snow when required. “It clears off all the snow in a gradual manner, which was intended in the first place,” she said. Later, they’ll be positioned at the top of cables and then dropped down and back up by remote control when needed. “The initial solution may not be that elegant,” Polak said. “But we wanted to make sure we have a solution for the public.” More than 250 vehicles were reported damaged Dec. 19 by ice that fell from the bridge’s cables, which cross overtop of traffic lanes unlike the ones on other local suspension bridges. Polak said the sweepers are just one of the preventative solutions engineers are testing to ensure bridge users are safe from falling snow and ice. Four hydrophobic silicon-based coatings are being tested to determine which performs best.

The intent is to coat all the cables this summer and make snow or ice more likely to slide off. A de-icing solution has also been found that can be sprayed on the bridge cables, although Polak referred to it as more of a “last resort” as it likely means a planned closure of some lanes. The cable sweepers are being tested at Cypress Bowl and engineers say they should glide smoothly along each cable without damaging the cable sheath. They’re to be used as soon as snow starts to fall and ongoing inspections will gauge how soon cables must be brushed again. Polak was unable to provide a cost estimate, but maintained the bridge contractor will pay the entire bill, not taxpayers. Polak praised contractor Kiewit/Flatiron for their “astonishing effort” in working to quickly find a fix. “They have put their top people on this – it’s been all hands on deck.” The so-called ice bombs incident was a major black eye for the new toll bridge, centrepiece of the new $3.3-billion Port Mann Highway 1 project, just weeks after it officially opened. Inadequate de-icing of the bridge deck was also blamed for a subsequent 40-vehicle crash Jan. 3. “Over the last month, we’ve installed additional weather stations to help identify threatening weather conditions well in advance,” said Kiewit Infrastructure Group president Scott Cassels. “We must finish-real world testing, but we believe the cable sweepers, coatings and de-icing sprays will be effective enhancements to the bridge.”

In regional competitions, Kisser, who has a form of dwarfism, competes alongside regular-statured athletes. In higher-level races, she goes up against competitors with varying mobility disabilities, but all categorized as S6 (the lower the number, the more severe the disability.) Only at sanctioned swim meets – provincial and higher – do the world rankings take effect. Kisser recently raced to what would have been a sixth-in-theworld spot had that race’s numbers been official. Danielle started competitive swimming at age 11 at the suggestion of a coach with para-swimming coaching experience. Her competitive nature keeps her in the pool. “I don’t focus on the other swimmers,” she says of regional heats. “I know they’re going to beat me. It’s me and the clock.” Kisser trains eight times, five days a week at the Sungod Aquatic Centre. An average workout is 3,000 metres, at times all-out. “I made the (basketball) team again this year, but I had to say no because it conflicted too much with swimming. I had to concentrate on my bigger goals.” And her goals, which are often reached, are the products of capitalizing on the things she can control – not her stature, but technique, strength and stamina. “She’s got an internal desire to be the best,” says her mom. “You don’t do these things for other people, you do them for yourself. That’s the only way you get up (at 5 a.m.) every morning.” Danielle, who’s comfortable with her disability and abilities, will tell her story this Saturday (Jan. 26) as a “human book” at the City Centre Library (10350 University Dr.) Danielle will be among 20 people who share their unique stories from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the library’s second-annual Human Library Project Event. She’ll also make visitors aware of The Society for Short Stature Awareness and its website, www.littlepeopleofbc.org/

Dog stolen in brazen, violent theft

by Monique Tamminga There is sTill no sign of an adorable

three-pound puppy taken in a violent robbery from a Puppies, Fish & Critters last Wednesday. Surrey RCMP spokesman Cpl. Bert Paquet said the investigation is still active and they are hoping to find the culprits who stole an expensive Papillon-Pomeranian puppy from the store on the Surrey/Langley border. Store owner Tom Bettauer said it was around closing time at 5 p.m. when an IndoCanadian man in his 20s came in to his shop, located in the 19400-block of Langley Bypass. The suspect asked to see the puppy with the giant ears. “He said he wanted to take a picture of the puppy to make sure it was the right one for

‘I was worried for my life,’ says store owner

Thieves have made off with a PapillonPomeranian puppy during a violent robbery at a langley pet store. his girlfriend,” said Bettauer. He only has six puppies in the store, so

Bettauer handed over the tiny dog to the suspect. “I was telling the guy that we get our puppies from a local breeder and that he could visit the parents if he likes, when these two other men came in the store and charged me,” he said. “They hammered me into the counter and started punching fists into my head,” said Bettauer. The pet store owner tried to fight off his attackers as the man holding the puppy ran out of the store. They tore both sleeves of his shirt, Bettauer said. “At this point I was worried for my life.” “Then, when one of the guys said to me ‘I am gonna kill you, man,’ ” the store owner said he was in shock.

“I’m a good-sized guy but I have kids so I didn’t want to fight them, I just wanted them to get out.” The victim called 911 as the other men fled on foot. Police arrived with a police dog who was able to track the suspects for a distance. The trail went cold and the suspects got away. The dog is worth around $1,000 and has large, pointy ears. “He’s the cutest looking puppy and just tiny for four months old,” said Bettauer. “We are hoping the best for this little dog. He is such a unique looking dog, he would be hard to sell. But we want to make every vet clinic and person know just in case he shows up somewhere.” His attackers are also described as IndoCanadian men in their 20s.

Transit smart cards worry privacy watchers Police use of passenger data possible: TransLink

by Jeff Nagel Privacy advocates

want stronger assurances that TransLink’s new Compass card system won’t become a tool for police to track transit riders. Starting later this year, passengers will start paying with the smart cards, which must be tapped against readers at the start and end of each SkyTrain, bus or SeaBus trip. TransLink says the identity and credit card information on users will be kept in a secure database separate from the one that collects data on their movements, which planners will use to refine bus routes and scheduling. B.C. Civil Liberties Association policy director Micheal Vonn said it will be tempting for police to try to get information from TransLink on the movements of suspects. “Who else is going to have the data?” Vonn asked. “When you build a tracking system all kinds of people will be interested in the information. Police, obviously.” Vonn wants to know how easy it will be for TransLink to match the identity of the cardholder in one database to their transit riding patterns in the other and under what circumstances might that be turned over to authorities. “People should have a right to be freely anonymous in their travels unless there’s a very, very good reason they shouldn’t be.” Michael Madill, TransLink vicepresident of enterprise initiatives, agreed police might want data on a transit user if officers found a Compass card at a crime scene, or perhaps to identify suspects or witnesses who entered a SkyTrain station around the time a crime was committed there. “We would cooperate with the police – obviously that’s what we would do,” he said. “They would have to follow the same protocols for that information as they would to get the video data from our video cameras that we have all over the

train and bus system.” TransLink has for years turned over surveillance video images to police investigators, provided there’s a formal police file number and other procedures are followed. TransLink is working with B.C.’s Information and Privacy Commissioner on how Compass card data should be handled, Maddill said, adding that a rider’s identity will only be recorded if they opt to have their Compass card registered. It will be possible to use a smart card anonymously without registering it and reload money on it at transit station kiosks. But Maddill said a registered card will be

more convenient for many people. A registered Compass card that’s connected to a user’s credit card or bank account will automatically reload itself to a preset level when the cash on it runs low. And a registered card that’s lost or stolen can be reported and TransLink will deactivate it and transfer the unused balance to a new card. “We want people to take advantage of that,” Maddill said. “But if someone chooses not to because they’re worried about privacy, that’s up to them. They can still load value on the card anonymously at machines.” Police in places such as London and Australia make regular use of

transit smart card data to solve crimes. Stringent limits are required, Vonn argued, or else police here could make highly intrusive use of such a system – not just in extreme cases like a terrorist bombing on the transit system, but potentially to track and intercept protesters en route to a lawful demonstration. “We have intelligence-led policing which is increasingly interested in the tracking of ordinary lawabiding folks,” she said. Vonn noted B.C. police forces intended to make broader use of licence plate data from car-mounted cameras until the privacy commissioner ordered changes.

Two problem gamblers have the green light to proceed with a class-action lawsuit against the BC Lottery Corporation (BCLC) after they were denied $77,000 in casino winnings in 2010. Hamidreza Haghdust was denied jackpots totalling $35,000 at casinos in Coquitlam and Vancouver, and Michael Lee was refused a $42,000 slot machine jackpot in Duncan because they were both enrolled in BCLC’s voluntary self-exclusion (VSE) program, which is designed to bar admitted problem gamblers from casinos.

can certify the class action suit, which opens the door for other excluded gamblers to add their own claims ahead of an eventual trial. BCLC said it advertised and notified patrons of its jackpot entitlement rules that deny winnings for excluded gamblers once the policy took effect in April 2009. Both plaintiffs had used the self-exclusion program since 2006, before the denial of winnings policy was introduced. A total of 300 jackpot prizes were withheld from ineligible excluded gamblers between 2009 and mid-2012.

In its defence, BCLC said one of the key planks of the self-exclusion program is to confiscate prizes as a further disincentive to deter participants from trying to sneak in to gamble. Lee and Haghdust both did get into gambling establishments and, while they sometimes won, they also incurred large losses – $200,000 in Haghdust’s case. They argue it’s “unconscionable” for BCLC to deny their winnings since it was negligent in failing to keep them out in the first place and it may also constitute a breach of contract. A B.C. Supreme Court Justice John Savage agreed the pair

New year – new attitude Green Fighters Challenge helps participants keep their healthy resolutions

by Sheila Reynolds and Evan Seal It’s a new year, and

now it’s time for a new lifestyle. Black Press has partnered with Kin’s Farm Market to launch the Green Fighters Challenge in 13 communities in the Lower Mainland, which will follow participants over several months as they change their life and get healthy. One person will be chosen from each participating community to make a change and win prizes. The grand prize will be a cruise for two from Cruise Experts. It will be awarded at the end of the 13-week contest. However, one Green Fighter will win a prize each week during weekly challenges. But it’s not just the participants who will be able to win. Canadian Tire will provide prizes for readers as well as the challengers as part of their commitment to healthy living, and you are encouraged to check out the Green Fighters website (www.kinsgreenfighters.com) to follow the participants’ progress and share your thoughts about how you are eating better and getting fit yourself for 2013. The Canadian Cancer Society has noted that changing just one thing about your life, whether it’s eating more vegetables or quitting smoking, can reduce your cancer risk. Kin’s Farm Market is pleased to be able to provide fruits and vegetables to the participants in the Green Fighters Challenge, as well as produce to every customer that will put you on the road for achieving your New Year’s resolution and a healthier lifestyle in general. The Green Fighters site will regularly include recipes, special offers and tips for making a change, whether it’s to your diet or fitness level. 2013 is shaping up to be a year of change for UBC student Ben Duenas. After spending most of his days during the last few years in a classroom, the chemical engineering student is looking to make some changes in his life. “While going to school full time, I didn’t have time to exercise,” said Duenas. “I’ve made it my New Year’s resolu-

tion to get out there and try new things.” The 23-year-old, who was cooling down after a short workout at Bear Creek Park in Surrey, also wants to rev up his social life. “I’ve been sitting in class far too long, so I just signed up for jiujitsu (a Japanese martial art) and ballroom dancing,” Duenas said. “I hope to meet new people outside the classroom.” For Sukhmani Pannu, also 23, getting in shape and staying in shape has become her goal for this year. She has already made some changes to the way she eats. “I found that I used to have a meal around 6:30 or 7 p.m. every night, but now I eat earlier, around 5 p.m. and then have a small salad.” The strategy seems to be working, Pannu said, as she’s already dropped 20 pounds. A recent poll of Lower Mainland residents, however, shows Duenas and Pannu may be in the minority. Results of an Ipsos Reid survey (commissioned by Fitness Town Surrey) released last month indicate just 14 per cent of people actually made New Year’s fitness-related resolutions last year. And of those who did, about two-thirds stuck to them. Those who abandoned their healthy plans listed lack of motivation, laziness, and lack of time as their top reasons for abandoning their good intentions. When asked what would motivate them to continue with keep-fit resolutions, survey respondents said having more time would help, as would personal support from a trainer or nutritionist, or having someone to work out with. Others people said more money – to buy equipment or for a gym membership – might prompt them to exercise, as would a better schedule (such as a more flexible work timetable) or having a regular schedule or fitness program created for them. When asked how often tNhey engage in sports or other exercise, just 20 per cent of poll respondents said they exercised between five and seven times a week, while 40 per cent said

two to four times a week was average for them. About four per cent said they never exercise. Of those who do exercise, almost 70 per cent agreed they do so to lose weight. Also included in the survey results were questions about eating during the Christmas holidays. While 71 per cent admit they overindulged, 63 per cent said they felt guilty about it. Other figures indicated the holiday season

and its overabundance of turkey dinners and desserts have had a clear impact on the urge to get back on a healthy path. Fifty-five per cent of those polled said they were inspired to get fit right before the holidays, an impulse that dropped by about 11 per cent during the holidays. However, more than 73 per cent of respondents said they were wanted to get fit right after the

holiday season. For Pannu, it doesn’t matter what the statistics show, she said she just wants to get healthy – and look good. “I want to be a fitness trainer, so I need to have a six-pack,” she said, laughing.

on online dating sites and text messages that lure cellphone users into revealing personal information are among the top scams that aim to separate consumers from their cash this year. The annual top 10 scams list was released Tuesday by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) in partnership with police and both federal and provincial consumer protection authorities. The number-one scam of the year actually plays on the role of the bureau itself – fraudsters have sent millions of official-looking emails to people and businesses claiming they’re the subject of a BBB complaint and investigation and directing them to click a link that downloads a virus that steals banking information and passwords. “The immediate fear is that your company’s reputation may be harmed by a complaint,” BBB president and CEO Danielle Primrose said. “And that is why the scam works so well.” She said young people with smart phones can be particularly susceptible to text messaging

scams that offer them gift cards at major retailers and lure them to a web site where they give up personal information. Romance scams have spiked in activity, she said, noting more than 1,000 victims in Canada lost a combined $14 million last year. Perpetrators always have an excuse why they can’t meet in person and build an online relationship with the victim before asking them to wire money for travel or to help with a heartbreaking family emergency. “These are probably very under-reported,” Primrose said. “Who wants to admit that they’ve been taken advantage of simply for falling in love?” Older schemes are also still making the rounds. Rogue door-to-door contractors remain an ongoing problem. And “curbers” selling deficient used cars, often imported from the U.S., are expected to become a growing problem as a flood of vehicles damaged by Hurricane Sandy make their way to other jurisdictions, including B.C. “Buy from somebody you have recourse against, such as a licensed dealer,” suggested Doug Longhurst of the Motor

Vehicle Sales Authority of British Columbia. He also urged car buyers to search the full vehicle history. “If a vehicle has been in three or four states, there’s a pretty good chance it was essentially ‘washed’ through those states to get the title clean.” Investment fraud remains a major problem for commercial crime investigators. One such case involving a notary public snared more than 200 Lower Mainland investors last year and cost them $83 million, according to B.C. Securities Commission spokesman Andy Poon. He said a survey last year found a quarter of B.C. residents aged 50 and up have experienced some sort of investment fraud in their lifetimes. “One of the most significant barriers we face is reporting,” said RCMP Sgt. Duncan Pound. “Come forward and move past the embarrassment. It could happen to anyone.” For the full list of top scams for this year and tips on how to avoid falling for them, see www. mbc.bbb.org/top-ten-scams

Surrey a finalist in Earth Hour contest

. 28 n. Ja

Get it before it’s gone

City chosen by WWF by Sheila Reynolds Surrey is one three

Canadian cities selected as a finalist in the World Wildlife Foundation’s (WWF) Earth Hour City Challenge. The challenge, says the WWF, is meant to celebrate cities that are taking steps to become “greener, cleaner and more sustainable.” In all, 17 finalists from around the world were chosen from 66 entrants who were asked to submit “inspiring and credible urban development plans that dramatically increase the city’s use of renewable energy.” All three Canadian finalists were from B.C. “B.C.’s strong provincial climate action plan may be one reason why we have such a strong showing from cities in this province,” said Jim Leape, Director General of WWF International. “We applaud the many local governments who have set extremely ambitious development plans to create desirable cities by providing housing, transportation and energy which improve their citizens’ quality of life while simultaneously reducing their impact on our planet – and we encourage others to follow their lead.” The WWF says an international jury of experts will now identify one city per country worthy of the title Earth Hour Capital. These capitals, together with the Global Earth Hour Capital, will be presented at a conference on March 19 in Sweden.

COMMUNITY CHARTER S.B.C. 2003 CHAPTER 26 NOTICE OF INTENTION TO SELL CITY LANDS

quizzing provincial political parties to test their positions on select issues and try to steer this spring’s election debate in a direction favourable to local cities. The regional district has quietly endorsed a “pre-election advocacy strategy” that asks the parties questions in six areas of concern for Metro’s board and its member municipalities. The topics listed in the questionnaire obtained by Black Press are new relationships, municipal financing, affordable housing, protecting the environment, public transit and regional planning. Letters from the regional district board to the leaders of the BC Liberals, NDP, Greens and BC Conservatives urge them to answer the questions and “engage

in a constructive dialogue” on the issues so Metro can develop a “close working partnership” with the next provincial government on regional concerns. Metro Vancouver Board Chair Greg Moore said it’s important voters understand how political parties intend to treat cities, which blame senior government downloading for much of the pressure on them to raise property taxes and fees. “We’re not going to take a position on who to support or who not to support,” Moore said. “But we’re going to make it transparent as to what those answers are. And we’re also going to highlight what areas they could actually address better based on their answers.” He said Metro sent its request well in advance so the parties can carefully consider the questions and possibly even alter their platforms.

“We’re not going to take a position on who to support.” Greg Moore One question asks what provincial revenue sources B.C. should share with cities to provide critical services. It doesn’t spell out a proposed source, but a recent Metro-sponsored financial symposium heard various ideas, including a one per cent increase in the GST flowing to municipalities. A similar “penny tax” funds many U.S. cities and is being considered by some provinces. Metro also asks if the province will join Ottawa in each providing one-third of the cost

of a future federal infrastructure grant program and whether cities will be forced into P3 deals with private partners on major projects. Another question takes aim at Port Metro Vancouver’s potential expansion onto farmland, asking how each party will “prevent the encroachment of industrial uses onto viable, protected agricultural land.” The region also asks the parties to take a stand on potential new funding sources for TransLink, including a road pricing policy for the Metro Vancouver area and the sharing of some of the carbon tax collected in Metro. Other areas where Metro is seeking commitments include: • Governance changes for TransLink to better align transportation and land-use needs and provide more public input via “elected representatives.” • Support to address housing affordability, including reforms to expand rental housing stock and more funding for shelters. • More money for the Agricultural Land Commission to enforce protection of ALR land. • More flexible use of federal gas tax transfers for TransLink. • Inclusion of local cities in negotiations and consultations with First Nations on decisions that may affect them. Metro expects responses by March 15 and intends to post them at a new website, localgovernmentsmatter.ca Moore said the idea was partly inspired by a similar effort led by Calgary and other Alberta cities to advance civic concerns in last year’s Alberta provincial election. Business Council of B.C. executive vicepresident Jock Finlayson said Metro’s aim to pry away more taxation power from the province is a “forlorn hope” because there’s “simply no pot of ‘extra’ money sitting in Victoria that can easily be redirected” without raising other taxes or cutting provincial spending.

Saving time and money at Morgan Crossing By Kerry Vital

Morgan Crossing is ringing in the New Year with a great price on all remaining Focus homes until Jan. 31. The Focus homes are two- and threebedroom condominiums in the heart of the popular village, and Director of Sales Bryan Woolley says they’ve proven to be very popular. “The homes are really well-designed,” he says, adding, “Now is the time to buy ... these homes are priced to sell.” With spacious floorplans ranging from 922 to 1,270 square feet and plenty of amazing features such as engineered wood flooring, gorgeous countertops and an open-plan layout, buyers will easily find things to love about their new home. The biggest draw of the homes at Morgan Crossing is the amazing village lifestyle that you get when you purchase here. The village has shopping, dining, community events and amenities right outside your front door. The homes at Focus are located directly above Thrifty Foods, so going grocery shopping is incredibly easy. “You don’t have to stock up on groceries if you don’t want to,” says Woolley. “It’s just two minutes from your home into the store. You can do it during a commercial break!” If you’re craving a dinner out, Morgan Crossing offers you a range of choices from White Spot to Pita Pit. When it’s time for dessert, Mink A Chocolate Cafe or Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt is right around the corner. Shopping is simple at the variety of stores at Morgan Crossing, from Jacob to Town Shoes to Winners. Even a workout is right outside, with the Steve Nash Sports Club in the village. “People fall in love with the village,” Woolley says. “It sets Morgan Crossing apart.” The community feel is especially important. “The social possibilities really attract people,” says Woolley. In fact, he notes that the events at Morgan Crossing continue to bring residents out in droves. Past events have included car shows, fashion shows and movie nights. A wide range of people have purchased homes at Morgan Crossing, from downsizers to young firsttime buyers. This makes for a good mix of people around and plenty of opportunities to chat with new people, Woolley says. Cost-savings are a big thing at

People fall in love with the village,” says Director of Sales Bryan Wooley. “It sets Morgan Crossing apart.” Morgan Crossing as well, as you won’t need a car to complete all of your errands, and you may find yourself entertaining at home a lot more often instead of heading out on the town because everything is right at your fingertips. This also saves you a lot of time, meaning you can spend more of it doing the things you really want to do rather than rushing around trying to get everything done before finally being able to head home after a long day. For more information, visit the real estate presentation centre at 103157755 Croyden Dr., South Surrey, next to Thrifty Foods in the village, open daily (except Fridays) from noon until 5 p.m. Condos start at just $269,900 during the promotion.

Make some noise against bullying

Women’s basketball team defeats Langley, loses to Douglas

Remaining a game above .500,

the Kwantlen Eagles retained a firm hold on a playoff position in the PACWEST women’s basketball standings. Kwantlen defeated the Langara Falcons 59-41 Friday night in Vancouver, before falling 47-36 to the Douglas College Royals Saturday in New Westminster. The Eagles are now 7-6 (won-lost) in league play, tied for fourth plaice with the Quest Kermodes and remain three games against of the seventhplace Falcons. Six teams qualify for the PACWEST playoffs. Kwantlen went up 11-5 after 10 minutes Saturday, and continued to build the lead the rest of the way, outscoring Langara in each quarter. Jessica Villadiego was the top scorer for the winners, netting 16 points while grabbing eight defensive rebounds. Amber-Lee Kavanagh added 13 points and 11 rebounds, while Samantha McPhail was credited with 10 rebounds. The Eagles shot 55 per cent from three-point territory, and 64 per cent from the free-throw line. “It was the first time all year where we came out strong right from the opening tip,” said head coach Dan Nayebzadeh. “Jessica ran the point and shot the ball very well (five-for-10), and Sam and Amber rebounded really

well for us.” Against a Douglas team that is in second place at 10-3, the Eagles fell behind early and couldn’t catch up. They trailed 22-13 at the break, and although cut the lead by one after threequarters, lost ground over the final 10 minutes. Haeley Williams was the long Kwantlen scorer in double digits, hitting two of three field goals from behind the three-point line to finish with 11 points. McPhail was the top rebounder with nine. Kwantlen managed to shoot just 21 per cent from the field, and 35 per cent from the freethrow line. “Defensively we were fine,” said Nayebzadeh. “Offensively we struggled to score. We were unable to hit shots, couldn’t make free throws and had a tough time executing our offense.” The men’s team from Kwantlen Polytechnic University lost twice last weekend, and dropped into last place in a very tight PACWEST race. The Eagles lost 104-77 to first-place Langara Friday in Vancouver, then were handled 81-56 by Douglas on Saturday. Now with a 4-9 record, they are a game back of four teams tied for fourth place, and just two games off the pace of the thirdplace (6-7) Quest Kermodes. “This was a very rough

weekend for us on the road,” said Eagles coach Stefon Wilson “We did not shoot the ball well. I thought we received the same looks that we get every game night but they just did not fall for us this weekend.” Langara, now with a 12-1 record, led from start to finish Friday, and went up 33-22 after the first quarter, and 56-28 by halftime. Ali Bosir and Aaron Ram accounted for almost threequarters of the Eagles scoring, netting 27 points each. Ram was six-of-11 from the three-point line, while Bosir was the top rebounder with nine. Kwantlen again struggled offensively Saturday in New Westminster, and fell behind 17-11, 35-23 and 53-38 at the quarter breaks. Chris Arcangel with 14 points and Tristan Gruenthaler with 13 paces the Eagles. With eight games remaining on each of their schedules, the two Eagles teams will be at home for six of them. The Camosun Chargers are the visitors at Kwantlen Polytechnic University Friday night, with the women tipping off at 6 p.m. and the men following at 8 p.m. On Saturday afternoon, the Vancouver Island Mariners are the opponents for games at 1 p.m. (women) and 3 p.m. (men).

ward Adam Tambellini was named BC Hockey League Player of the Week, the player he was traded for earned the same award. Vernon Vipers’ Mason Blacklock – a Surrey native and Semiahmoo Minor Hockey alum – helped the Vipers to a pair of wins last week. First, he scored the winning goal and added three assists in a 6-4 win over the Nanaimo Clippers, and he followed up that performance with a goal and an assist in a 3-1 win over the Cowichan Valley Capitals.

The Burnaby native, who played four seasons for the Eagles, is third in scoring for the Nanooks, with eight goals and 14 points.

They’re second to none in terms of their academic excellence, and I think it will be an excellent fit.” Meanwhile, Best – a BCHL rookie from Plymouth, Mich. – has 12 goals and 32 points this season. “He’s a really good offensive player, but I think he’s really learned both sides of the game in the first half of the season. He’s been very responsible defensively, and at the same time, he has put up 30 points already which is impressive for the first half of his rookie season. It’s nice to see him get rewarded for all the hard work that

Surrey/North Delta Leader

Surrey Little Theatre presents the Vegas-based comedy, Bermuda Avenue Triangle

PHOTOS BY TYLER SEIB

Old biddies Fannie (Kate Major) and Tess (Laurie Kortschak) get an earful from the Rabbi (played by Michael Powell) in Bermuda Avenue Triangle, which opens at the Surrey Little Theatre tonight.

Age of enlightenment? by Sheila Reynolds

T

here’s a saying that goes a little something like this: “There may be snow on the roof, but there’s still fire in the furnace.” Surrey Little Theatre’s latest comedy, says director Rita Price, embodies the phrase. “Regardless of how old you are, the need to be loved and to love never goes,” she says. “This doesn’t change as you get older.” Of course, Bermuda Avenue Triangle, written by Renee Taylor and Joseph Bologna, doesn’t take anything resembling a straight and narrow path to get to that moment of clarity. Instead, it meanders down a trail littered with laughs and near-farcical scenes as it follows a pair of rather miserable and unfashionable women in their late 60s who are put in an upscale retirement condo in Las Vegas by their careeroriented daughters. Between bouts of complaining and crying, the “old biddies” end up having a run-in with a charming, sweet-talking scoundrel named Johnny Paolucci. He decides the two are easy prey, and after years of unhappiness, they undergo a reawakening of sorts and find the lost bounce in their step. “But don’t give away my storyline!” warns Price, afraid to divulge too much about the plot. Bermuda is her 17th show in the director’s chair. And a comedy like the one in which she’s currently ensnared, is her genre of choice. “Life is enough of a drama,” she says. “People just love to sit and laugh. “So often, they are going through their own hurdles… if anything, they want to get away from their problems, they don’t want to see them acted out on stage.” Terry Ford and Lisa Beaulieu Also important to Price, who’s on the play-reading complay daughters who put their mittee at Surrey Little Theatre (SLT), is finding a script with mothers in a retirement condo an appropriately sized cast. Below four, she says, and it’s in Las Vegas. often less interesting to watch and doesn’t involve as many

people as a community theatre production should. More than eight and the actors simply don’t fit on the small stage. With a cast of six – four men and four women – Bermuda Avenue Triangle is perfect, she says. While some of the faces may be familiar to local theatre crowds, Dr. Laurie Kortschak, who plays one of the “old biddies,” Tess, is new to the SLT stage. While she acted years ago, it’s her first return to the stage in a long while. “So she’s back treading the boards,” says Price. Kate Major (who plays the other biddie, Fannie) is a common face on local stages. In fact, Price has worked with her five times previously. Peter Cowhig (Johnny), Michael Powell (Rabbi), Lisa Beaulieu (Rita, Fannie’s daughter) are also experienced. But while Terry Ford (who plays Angela, Tess’s daughter) may be recognizable to Surrey theatregoers, Bermuda will allow audiences to see her in a new light – a spotlight, in fact. “She’s done costumes, she’s worked front of house, she’s on the board of directors,” says Price, “but she’s never been on the stage. This is on her bucket list … to finally get on stage.” Price lauds the devotion her small bevy of actors has shown, noting that contrary to popular belief, comedy is actually the more difficult of the genres to act. “With comedies, not only do you have to deliver the lines, you have to pace the lines and you have to have the right body movements to support them.” And with only six weeks of rehearsals under their proverbial belts – not to mention careers and families to balance – the cast has done a tremendous job, the director says. “I’m very proud of them.” To be fair, Price has attached a warning to the show, due to a bit of coarse language and some adult content. It’s not suitable for children, she says. “It is a bit spicy.” Bermuda Avenue Triangle runs Thursday through Sunday, Jan. 24 to Feb. 16. Shows are at 8 p.m., with Sunday matinées Feb. 3 and Feb. 10 at 2 p.m. The 76-seat Surrey Little Theatre is located at 7027 184 St. Tickets are $15. For reservations, call 604-576-8451 or email reservations@surreylittletheatre.com, or purchase online at www.surreylittletheatre.com.

loCal MeMBerS of The War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program joined The War Amps PLAYSAFE/DRIVESAFE float in last fall’s Rogers Santa Claus Parade. Surrey’s Andrew Stasiewski, 24, a partial left hand amputee, was a safety falker with the float, while Surrey’s Arianna Hunsicker, 9, a partial left hand amputee, rode the float as a safety ambassador. “These Champs help us get the PLAYSAFE message out to more than 2.5 million people at parades across Canada each year,” said Rob Larman, director of PLAYSAFE/DRIVESAFE. The float is designed to capture the attention of children, with ASTAR, the gold robot from Planet Danger reminding them that he can put his arm back on but they can’t. To further reinforce the message, the safety walkers and ambassadors shouted out the PLAYSAFE message to kids and the DRIVESAFE message to adults along the parade route. arianna hunsicker For more information, visit www.waramps.ca
