Surrey Board of Trade calls on Victoria to triple the seats south of the Fraser by Sheila Reynolds THE NUMBER of college and univer-

sity student spaces in the South Fraser region needs to triple by 2025, says the Surrey Board of Trade (SBOT), or Surrey will suffer both socially and economically. The board, which represents about 1,900 businesses, presented a paper called Can the Future Learn in Surrey and the South Fraser? on Thursday, stating investment in Anita Patil post-secondary Huberman education is “urgently needed.” The document says that with 940,000 people, Surrey and the South Fraser region are the fastest-growing areas of B.C., and yet there is relatively little local access for those wanting to attend college or university. While the area produces 22 per cent of B.C.’s high school graduates,

Dhaliwal steps down as B.C. Liberal candidate Former MP facing charges over not filing income taxes by Kevin Diakiw Longtime Surrey politician Sukh

Dhaliwal stepped down from his run with the B.C. Liberals, the day after it was revealed he is facing six charges under the Income Tax Act. Dhaliwal, who was the B.C. Liberal candidate for Surrey-Panorama leading up to the May election, announced before a crowd at the Grand Taj Banquet Hall in Newton on Friday that he’s stepping down. Dhaliwal is facing six charges under the Income Tax Act for failing to file returns for a company for which he Sukh Dhaliwal was responsible. “The last two days have been extremely difficult for me and my family,” Dhaliwal told a group of reporters Friday afternoon. “I want to make sure I take care of the outstanding matters that are before the courts.” He said in no way did the B.C. Liberal party push him to make the decision to step down. “Absolutely not,” he said. “It’s my decision, it’s my family’s decision, and that’s what I’m making.” Dhaliwal is president of Genco Consultants Inc., the firm that allegedly failed to file tax returns for six years. The federal indictment reads that Dhaliwal, “being director of Genco Consultants Inc... did unlawfully direct authorize, assent to, acquiesce in or participate in Genco ConsulSee TAX PROBLEM / Page 5

A coroner’S inquest into the death of a Surrey teen who was struck and killed by a police vehicle in North Surrey two years ago concluded Thursday with five recommendations for the RCMP and one for the City of Surrey, ICBC and TransLink.

Ashley Christine Guiboche, 18, was killed Jan. 31, 2011 when she was walking across King George Boulevard near 98 Avenue and was hit by an RCMP cruiser. The driver, Const. Albert Luk, was speeding without his siren or emergency lights activated, responding to a report of a stolen vehicle. The jury at a coroner’s inquest may not make any findings of legal responsibility, but can make recommendations aimed at preventing deaths under similar circumstances in the future. The first of the six recommendations

last week was that the city, ICBC and TransLink work together to find a solution to the “serious jaywalking problem” along King George Boulevard between 98 and 100 Avenues. It’s suggested that either an overhead walkway be built over the road stretch, or that a pedestrian-activated crosswalk at 98B Avenue be installed. “This needs to be a priority,” said the jury. The city says it is working on the recommendation. See LIGHTED CROSSING / Page 8

City objects to parody T-shirts Owner of online business says slogans are meant to spark dialogue by Alex Browne Surrey community

activist and former B.C. Green party candidate Don Pitcairn said he wasn’t looking to stir up a media furor about his online business, surreyshirts. com, which sells silkscreened shirts with logos and slogans that celebrate the city with a satirical edge.

Tax problem: ‘I take full responsibility,’ Dhaliwal says From page 3 tant Inc.’s failure to file a completed Corporate Income Tax Return on Form T2” for the years 2004, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010. Dhaliwal told The Leader he accepted complete responsibility for the problem, but noted he was not involved in day-to-day operations of the company. “I relied on others to make sure the company was in good standing in regards to taxes and other matters,” Dhaliwal said. “That was my mistake. I am the director, so I take full responsibility, and I’m working to resolve these matters through the proper channels.” He noted he owns Dhaliwal and Associates Land Surveying, which has filed taxes every year, as has he personally. The charges against Dhaliwal were sworn on Oct. 15, 2012, just two weeks before the B.C. Liberals announced he was their candidate for the Surrey-Panorama riding for this May’s election. Dhaliwal was running on a platform of fiscal responsibility. The indictment states a “notice of requirement was served personally on him on August 24, 2011...” Asked why he didn’t file the back years’ taxes at that point, he said the matter is complicated. “This company is reliant on many other things, and it’s before the courts and I cannot say that right now,” Dhaliwal said. “I can’t comment any further.” According to B.C. Registry Services, Dhaliwal’s wife Roni is secretary of Genco. She is facing 14 charges under the Income Tax Act, according to court documents. A spokesperson at Canada Revenue Agency said he couldn’t comment on tax matters that are before the courts. Both Sukh and Roni Dhaliwal were

arraigned Dec. 17 and their next court date is Feb. 21. Given the chance to do things differently, Dhaliwal said he would have put Genco in the hands of his land surveying company. The maximum penalties under the act for the offence are a $ 25,000 fine and a year in jail. Dhaliwal was MP for Newton-North Delta from 2007 to 2011, losing his seat to New Democrat Jinny Simms in the May 2011 federal election. It’s not the first time Dhaliwal has been at the heart of controversy. In 2008, when he was MP, he made headlines when he wrote a letter of support for international drug trafficker Ranjit Cheema to California District Judge Stephen Wilson, urging him to give Cheema a chance at rehabilitation. Dhaliwal described Cheema as a man who would one day return to his family in Canada and seemed committed to rehabilitation. “I personally believe, along with tougher laws, rehabilitation is fundamentally essential to make our society, our country, and our planet a better place to live,” Dhaliwal wrote in the letter on Government of Canada letterhead. “I have no doubt that if he (Cheema) is given support and direction, he will be a strong, active member of his community in years to come.” Despite the support, Cheema was sentenced in California to five years in prison for conspiring to smuggle 200 kilograms of heroin from Pakistan to North America in 1998. Dhaliwal, when asked about the correspondence during a re-election campaign, regretted not having checked with police before writing the letter. Cheema was gunned down last May.

hings are clearly getting desperate for Lower Mainland mayors if they are seriously proposing a sales tax to help pay for public transportation in the region. The proposed TransLink sales tax would add up to 0.5 per cent on to the GST and/or PST on goods and services sold in the Metro Vancouver area. At five cents on every $10 spent, the tax is modest, so much so that most consumers wouldn’t ever notice it, yet it will generate $250 million in new revenue. The fact is, cost-efficient public transportation benefits everyone. It facilitates trade, eases automobile traffic, reduces the need for costly freeways, and unlike roads, it is a user pay system. In that light, the proposed tax makes a lot of sense. It’s an investment in our economy. But any new tax is politically poisonous, especially a sales tax. Just ask Gordon Campbell or Brian Mulroney. So for Lower Mainland mayors to float this idea, you can be sure of one thing: They are out of ideas. There are many reasons for Translink’s funding woes. One that rarely gets mentioned is that Metro Vancouver is largely a victim of its geography, and what makes it beautiful also makes it a nightmare to get around. Mountains, rivers, and ocean are pretty to look at, but designing transit infrastructure around them is costly. We’re also nearly 4,500 km away from Canada’s seat of power, and as such, we are an afterthought politically. This might be Metro Vancouver’s most tragic geographical shortcoming. Of the 12 current projects listed on Transport Canada’s website as receiving federal money, seven are for projects located in the Greater Toronto Area, totalling more than $1.6 billion in funding. For all of B.C., the feds are contributing just $500 million, the bulk of that going to construction of the Evergreen Line in Coquitlam. No word on how a Surrey SkyTrain expansion will be funded. Metro Vancouver is not getting its fair share of federal transportation funding. We may have half the population of Toronto, but we’re getting one-third the funding, and our need is arguably greater. Before more taxes, it’s time for all levels of government to take responsibility for public transportation in the Lower Mainland. – Black Press


magine a province where party leaders are chosen in an independently supervised vote, with 12-year-olds, dead people and pets prevented from voting. Imagine a province where roving gangs of influence-seekers aren’t allowed to join multiple parties, and the rule is actually enforced. One where corporations and unions have to advertise in their own name instead of financing political parties and then disclosing millions in donations months after the election is over. Imagine a province where elections are held based on audited financial statements, not a collection of election promises that will be dismissed as a work of fiction by the new regime if the incumbent party is defeated.

The idea is for the government to table the annual budget, present the audited public accounts for the previous year, then have an election that rests on tested financial statements and initial results for the current forecast. Both the B.C. Liberal Party and the NDP have expressed support for this idea. The independents suggest that this brief threeweek legislative session is a good time to do it, so the next government can implement it. I asked Mike de Jong, the B.C. Liberal finance minister and house leader, if he would consider it. He allowed that it is interesting, but it’s not contemplated for the pre-election session. That will be dominated by returning the provincial sales tax, and the usual jousting over untested spending and revenue proposals.

Jobs for Youth can take Clark’s jobs plan to the bank premier’s hirees

ChrIsty Clark created another

new government bureaucracy with the “BC Jobs Plan” (more than $25 million) employing a 17-member board of directors. Now she is blowing $15 million in tax dollars bragging about the jobs plan with expensive partisan propaganda TV and radio ads. Every time I hear another insulting ad it makes me sick as the B.C. Liberals care not one iota about creating a job in B.C., it’s all about making political points. Clark brags about skills and training in the jobs program, but training suffers as they look to outside contractors. She imposed a governmentwide public hiring freeze, then hired three more executive advisers for her office. She made a deal with the Chinese to exploit our mining resources and import cheap foreign labour. She exported our jobs to Germany for three standard steelhulled ferries that our shipyards could have built. She is exporting jobs to Holland for a new $25-million SeaBus when the last three SeaBuses were B.C.-shipyard built. BC Hydro is exporting contracts to Alberta and Texas for transmission line and other jobs. The Liberals blew $1 billion in borrowed tax dollars on smart meters with outside contractors to eliminate the student meter reader jobs. Now it’s too bothersome to train policing jobs so they are looking to import them from Europe. We are losing thousands of bright young people migrating out of B.C. looking for jobs elsewhere, as we undermine them with cheap imported labour. We need to start building a new centre/right party now and get rid of these Liberal destroyers. Common sense dictates that our job spin-offs should circulate within B.C.’s economy. The inept Liberals are low in the polls because we are learning how they have ruined our province, as more disastrous stories follow. Roland Seguin, Langley

I’M afraId it’s that time for all of us in British Columbia to start thinking about who we are going to vote for in the provincial election this spring. It’s not a decision that I’m taking lightly, especially when I think about what the future holds for the younger members of my family. One thing I would like to say, however, is how appalled I am about the unfair treatment Premier Christy Clark seems to get. Why this is so, I don’t really know. But she does not seem to be getting a fair shake at all. But then, putting on my sexist hat, perhaps

it’s not very surprising. As a woman myself, and having worked and competed in a man’s world, it once again demonstrates to me that a woman must juggle home, work and perception on a daily basis in a way that her male counterparts never have to. Of all the women who have ever been put in a leadership position in our country, from prime minister to premier, none has ever been able to demonstrate fully what they could do. They’ve only been treated as a stop gap for the next male leader. For once, I would really like to see what a

woman could do with her vision of our future. That’s why I’ve decided to support Christy Clark. As a daughter, wife, mother, and grandmother, I’ve seen how we’ve gotten to where we are now and I’m anxious for a change. So, let’s see what Christy Clark can do. It’s clear to me that she is genuinely focused on creating jobs for the younger members of our society, and that is something they can literally take to the bank. Diane Walters, Williams Lake

No discount due to design flaw as a surrey resident, it


a letter writer says surrey users of the 152 street access points to the new port Mann bridge are being penalized by not being able to cross over to the hoV lane.

was with much frustration to learn that if you use the 152 Street on-ramp or off-ramp for the Port Mann Bridge, you cannot get the HOV discount. The on-ramp enters the freeway at a point where you cannot cross over to the HOV lane in time for the cameras to take your picture. For the 152 offramp, you will need to be in the exit lanes well before the cameras can take your picture. I called Treo to ask about the issue and the response I was given was to use the 156 Street on-and off-ramps. This entry and exit forces a consumer to travel approximately two kilometers out of the way and through single lane access points. The simple solution would have been to put the HOV cameras in the middle of the bridge to accommodate both issues. Surrey users of the 152 Street access points are being penalized due to another flaw in the design of the bridge.

What happened to Abortion a matter for the classic rancher? a woman and a doctor

In reply to “Putting up with monster houses,” (Letters, The Leader,

Feb. 5), I too have watched how North Surrey has slowly turned from a suburb of lovely family homes into monster houses that would have been better zoned duplexes and triplexes. What happened to the classic rancher and the slightly larger split level, the types of homes that are perfect for small families, couples or single people who just want a small home to call their own? These monster houses are shutting many people out of the market and not everyone wants to live in a condo or a townhouse. And who is going to buy these huge homes that are now appearing on the market for resale, most of which have anywhere from five to eight bedrooms and three to five bathrooms with one or two suites? Surrey council, it is time you pulled your head out of the sand on this issue and started making some hard and fast rules in regards to these mega houses and those decisions need to reflect the wishes of all the people who live here.

re: “Canada’s abortIon matter

still not settled,” Letters, The Leader, Jan. 31. Contrary to the propaganda from the “God’s law trumps human rights” crowd, Canadian abortion laws are settled. The decision as to whether to continue pregnancy is a matter to be decided by the pregnant woman in consultation with her doctor. It is a matter of medical confidentiality and no one else has the right to know the woman was pregnant. Religious fanatics of all denominations claim they are protecting human lives. Where are they when one of the women under their control is raped or seduced and

becomes pregnant? In far too many cases, they apply their barbaric biblical rules to shame the woman, leading to women hiding their pregnancy and trying to end it without medical assistance. There are many studies supporting the fact that restrictive abortion laws lead to more (and more deadly) abortions. Religious fanatics continue to chip away women’s rights to control their bodies. These fanatics are not prolife. They are anti-liberty. Check for evidence-based discussions of this and other issues.

Police hunting for sex assault suspect Man attacked woman in an alleyway at 132A Street and 100A Avenue on Feb. 1

Surrey MountieS are

requesting the public’s

assistance in apprehending a suspect in an assault and attempted sexual assault investigation.

On Feb. 1, between 1 and 2 a.m., a woman was picked up by a man near University Drive and

105 Avenue. He drove into an alleyway at 132A Street and 100A Avenue and allegedly physically

assaulted the victim, who managed to fight back enough to be able to flee. The suspect is described as a male with a European look and olive-coloured skin, 20 to 22 years old, 5’8” to 5’9”, with dark-brown curly hair with highlights, brown eyes, clean shaven, clean manicured hands, and wearing a track suit

That said, he added that pedestrians are less likely to use them, so the lighted crossing will be the most effective safety measure.

recommendations were aimed at RCMP training, procedures and equipment. Additional and more frequent instruction as to when to activate lights and sirens was suggested, as was an increase in the length of time – from three months to one year – that senior officers ride along with new recruits. The RCMP, said the jury, should also consider a hands-free, verbal system for offi-

cers to communicate with while driving, or at least have a “heads up” screen on the dashboard to transmit messages from dispatch. Equipping police vehicles with cameras that automatically start recording when the lights or siren are activated was also recommended. Surrey RCMP say they’re starting to initiate some of the recommendations coming out of the inquest.

expansion in the late 1990s, but it really took off when the Liberals took power in 2001 after running on a platform that promised to stop the expansion of gambling. Back then, there were 2,400 slot machines province-wide. Now there are close to 12,000 – a five-fold increase over the last dozen years that has included the conversion of old-style bingo halls into “community gaming centres” with slot machines. Casinos now generate more than $1.5 billion a year for the provincial government. “There’s no question the overall dependence of government on lottery revenues has grown,” Dix said.

Mike de Jong rejected NDP criticism of his government’s sale of Crown land Thursday. De Jong’s comments came after NDP leader Adrian Dix and finance critic Bruce Ralston visited one of the properties – a vacant lot at Highway 10 and 152 Street that was bought in 1998 as a possible future hospital site. Ralston said the government has counted on raising $475 million in 2013 and more than $200 million the following year through asset sales, to help balance a 2013 budget after the current one ends in the red by $1.4 billion. “It’s not sustainable. It’s not good public policy,” Ralston said. The Surrey site was bought for $6 million and is currently assessed at $25 million. “It just makes eminent sense that the Crown would divest itself of that asset,” de Jong said.

Dix won’t pledge to block new casinos or expansions, but says he expects the B.C. Lottery Corp. (BCLC) to rethink its current approach in the wake of last month’s defeat of a proposed casino in South Surrey. Asked Thursday if an NDP government would freeze further gambling expansion, Dix criticized the B.C. Liberal government’s “petulant” response to Surrey council’s decision Jan. 19 to reject a gaming licence for the proposed South Surrey Entertainment Centre. “I don’t know if a freeze is what’s required,” Dix said during a visit in Surrey. “But clearly the lottery

SBOT: Growth hindered From page 1


NOTICE OF TEMPORARY INDUSTRIAL USE PERMIT The Council of the City of Surrey proposes to pass a resolution to issue a Temporary Industrial Use Permit, pursuant to the provisions of the Local Government Act, at the Regular Council – Public Hearing meeting in the Council Chamber at City Hall, 14245 - 56 Avenue, Surrey, B.C., on Monday, February 18, 2013, commencing at 7:00 p.m. PERMIT NO. APPLICANT:


7912-0334-00 The Board of Education of School District No. 36 (Surrey) c/o Super Soil Inc. (Tyler Ginther) 5333 – 176 Street Surrey, BC V3S 0L5 6887 – 194A Street To allow a soil screening operation and the storage and sale of such soil for a period not to exceed four (4) months.

Kwantlen Polytechnic University and SFU Surrey together provide less than 13 spaces per 100 residents aged 18 to 25. The rest of the province gets four times the number of seats, according to the SBOT. Anita Patil Huberman, the board’s CEO, says there needs to be a firm commitment from the province to invest in a phased-in approach that will triple the current number of university spots in the next 12 years. “This is going to be a key provincial election issue for us this year,” she said. “We’ll be asking all of the candidates, including the leaders of both parties, where they stand. We don’t want to hear ‘fiscal restraints’, ‘challenging for the economy’. There has to be a mindset that education is a fundamental foundation for driving our economy now and also in the future. “I want it to be a campaign promise.” The post-secondary push is part of the SBOT’s Education Today, Productivity Tomorrow paper, which was

launched with a focus on kindergarten to Grade 12 in 2009. “We’re finding that businesses… are finding it really challenging to find skilled workers, the types of workers they need to build their products or sell their services,” said Huberman. “There has to be access. A third of our population in Surrey is under the age of 20, and when they can’t access SFU or Kwantlen university, it compromises the workers within our workplaces.” SFU turned away about three-quarters of applicants this year due to high demand and raised admissions criteria so that only those with a high school average of 80 per cent or higher were admitted, closing the door on thousands of potential students. SFU president Andrew Petter says the board of trade’s advocacy has helped shine a light on a problem of growing concern. He said the government, through a single strategy, could address two major issues: lack of student access to university and the looming skills shortage in B.C.

“The skills that are needed include university education… people who are going to be innovators. The people who are going to create the jobs are going to be people who have a range of different capabilities, many of which are going to come through university education,” said Petter.

“The skills that are needed include university education...” Andrew Petter Gord Schoberg, chair of Kwantlen’s board of governors, says Kwantlen has been underfunded for some time, but said new president Alan Davis has helped provide “fresh inspiration” around how the school collaborates with SFU and other universities in terms of program delivery and other potential efficiencies. “I think that’s part of the story when we go to the government, is not

just ask for more money, but do our part, too,” Schoberg said. Still, he added, having the SBOT recognize the value of higher education is invaluable. “The folks that the board represents are our customers. These are the folks that hire our grads, so it’s very important that we align with them.” Huberman also noted that if students are travelling farther to schools such as UBC, they leave the South of Fraser, taking their talents with them. Research has shown that if those who go elsewhere for education, tend to stay there. About 62 per cent of Surrey’s workforce has post-secondary education versus 71 per cent in the rest of Metro Vancouver. For every 1,000 people in the region, there are currently 12.6 full-time post-education spaces – a number the board of trade wants bumped up to 37.8 by 2025. With the population also growing over the 12-year time frame, that means an expansion from the current 12,210 spaces to 46,060. Last October, SFU reiterated a request made in 2006 that SFU Surrey’s physical space needed to double by 2015 to meet demand. There has been no financial commitment from the province to date. Without the investment in post-secondary education in the region, the SBOT says the lack of skilled labour and research facilities “will continue to significantly hinder the growth of Surrey’s core business community.” As well, socioeconomic problems will increase, says the board SBOT will now forward its advocacy paper to Minister of Advanced education John Yap and request a meeting.

Drunk driving orders reviewed

by Jeff Nagel A provinciAl review

is underway to reassess whether 1,200 drivers caught under B.C.’s tougher impaired driving penalties must still undertake responsible driver programs and use ignition interlocks. The review applies to drivers who were caught and penalized prior to a November 2011 court decision that found part of the original Immediate Roadside Prohibition program was unconstitutional, forcing a revision. According to the Ministry of Justice, the roadside fines and suspensions handed out to those drivers won’t be reversed. The case-by-case review looks at each of the 1,200 drivers’ driving records, including alcohol-related infractions, to determine whether they still require the costly remedial measures. The reassessment comes after a handful of affected drivers sought a judicial review of their requirements.

Safe disposal of drugs urged The locAl pharmacy is

the best place to dispose of old medications that are expired or unused. The BC Pharmacy Association is urging households to clean out medicine cabinets of products that could pose a risk through

improper use. B.C.’s Medications Return program (www. helps coordinate the safe, free disposal of unwanted pharmaceuticals at pharmacies. It’s seen the volume of returned drugs double over the past four years to 36,000 kilograms last year. “Please don’t flush your medications down the toilet or throw them in the trash,” added Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie, who chairs Metro Vancouver’s zero waste committee.

Urban mission settles in

by Kevin Diakiw A group helping the homeless and hungry has settled into a much smaller space and is considering which programs may be cut for lack of room. Surrey Urban Mission Society (SUMS) is still at its current location, at 13388 104 Ave.,

but after a Jan. 25 deadline to move, has had its space cut dramatically. Which programs will have to be slashed is yet to be determined, according to executive director Jonquil Hallgate. The society continues to look for new accommodation in the Whalley area.

Bus drivers get pay hike Union ratifies new contract with Coast Mountain

by Jeff Nagel Coast Mountain Bus Co.

drivers and other unionized staff will get a fourper-cent pay increase over the next two years under a new contract ratified Tuesday. The three-year deal reached last week provides no retroactive wage hikes for the first year – the old contract expired last March – but gives two per cent raises in 2013 and 2014. The new collective agreement was ratified

in an 88-per-cent vote by members of two Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) locals who work at TransLink’s bus subsidiary. It covers more than 4,700 transit operators, mechanics, maintenance and SeaBus workers, running to March 31, 2015. CAW local 111 president Don MacLeod said the deal ensures no concessions for workers while complying with the net-zero government mandate for other public sector unions in the first year.

MacLeod said the union also negotiated improvements to bus scheduling running times to improve service and address its concerns about pass-ups, overcrowding and lack of night bus service. He said the union will continue to work with TransLink to reduce fare evasion as well as violent attacks on bus drivers. The annual pay increases will add at least $6 million in each of the next two years to the $320-million annual cost of wages for the

drivers and other operations staff, according to Coast Mountain Bus director of operations Don Rice. “There’s no net increase in costs other than the straight wage increase,” Rice said. Coast Mountain is still bargaining with two smaller groups of workers – transit and maintenance supervisors, as well as other workers in depot dispatch and security. Rice said Coast Mountain has made significant savings in its cost structure after two audits last year.

Only 2 weeks left to save on Port Mann Bridge tolls.

Cost-cutting is on track at TransLink by Jeff Nagel a progress report on TransLink’s belt-tightening drive has

concluded Metro Vancouver’s transit system is largely on track to carve out $40 to $60 million in cost savings over the next three years. The findings from the office of TransLink’s independent commissioner show $33 million in cost efficiencies have already been achieved or are being implemented this year, with about $10 million still to come by the end of 2015. “The good news for us going forward is all the efficiencies we’ve been talking about for the last couple of years – highlighted by the audits – are beginning to pay off,” said TransLink board chair Nancy Olewiler. Much of the savings come from the bus system, by running schedules tighter with less wriggle room for recovery time at the end of each route.

Minister undecided on proposed sales tax Mayors suggest regional levy for TransLink by Jeff Nagel TransporTaTion

Minister Mary Polak isn’t ruling out the request of Metro Vancouver mayors to enable a regional sales tax to fund TransLink, saying more work would have to be done ahead of a decision. Area mayors on Tuesday suggested adding an additional sales tax charged in the Metro region of 0.1 to 0.5 per cent, with each tenth of a point adding $50 million a year for the transit system. “We’re nowhere near a decision that says whether it’s on or it’s off,” Polak said Wednesday. “There just isn’t enough information yet.” Polak said mayors have made “good progress” in making the case for new funding sources for TransLink. But she said she’d need greater detail, including how much new money in total mayors envision raising for TransLink and the timing of major rapid transit lines in Vancouver and through Surrey to White Rock and Langley. “They’re referencing Broadway corridor SkyTrain as well as the Surrey one,” Polak said. “We need them to find consensus on what would come first.” Polak last fall spelled out the province’s criteria for new TransLink funding to be considered – any new source must be affordable, regionally based and, critically, have public support. “We all saw what happens when you try to implement a tax that the public has not been consulted about and the pbulic has not been engaged with prior to it being implemented,” she said, referring to the imposition and withdrawal of the harmonized sales tax. “We don’t want to see that happen again.” Canadian Taxpayers Federation B.C. director Jordan Bateman said area residents can’t afford to pay more in sales tax and TransLink should find more waste to cut instead. “The mayors have shown just how tone deaf they are to the public’s wishes when they come back and float the idea of increas-

Mary polak ing sales tax,” Bateman said. “TransLink has a spending problem, not a revenue problem.” Sales tax would be just one potential new source, with road pricing, a vehicle levy, a share of carbon tax and land value capture near new rapid transit stations also on the table. Road pricing could be implemented by 2016, the letter suggests. Bateman predicts road tolls or a vehicle levy will be just as unpopular. “Enough fleecing driv-

ers,” he said. Bateman said sales tax had not been previously proposed for TransLink, adding he suspects mayors are raising it to “distract attention from what they really want, which is the vehicle levy.” Although the regional mayors’ council’s Jan. 31 letter to TransLink supports a regional sales tax of 0.5 per cent – which could raise $250 million a year – council chair Richard Walton said he thinks a smaller ‘RST’ of 0.1 to 0.2 per cent more likely. Bateman predicted even a small “toehold” into the sales tax would be disastrous because TransLink will keep coming back for more. The BC Business Council doesn’t have a position but would entertain the idea of raising sales tax for TransLink, said executive vice-president Jock Finlayson. He said many U.S.

cities have a small local sales tax added on top of the regular state sales tax for specific projects or services. “For taxpayers, obviously, the lower the better,” Finlayson said, when asked if a TransLink sales tax of less than 0.5 per cent would be more palatable. “We do see a need for a more stable funding arrangement in place for TransLink which has really be struggling with a series of financial challenges,” Finlayson said. The business council is also open to considering a vehicle levy or comprehensive road pricing in the region, he added. The NDP plan for financing transit is to redirect carbon tax revenue that now goes to corporate tax relief under the province’s revenue-neutral policy, effectively raising business taxes.

begin to see success, you can add others. It’s also helpful to chunk out your goal over a period of time to make it less overwhelming. Want to save $50 dollars a week? Break it out into a daily savings amount. Does your annual RRSP goal seem intimidating? Don’t wait till the last minute to contribute a lump sum; you can set up an automatic monthly payment plan and gradually build up the needed funds. 3. Set the time. If

maintain your reduced spending plan for two years, what would the financial return be? Imagine what you could do with that. When the going gets tough, think of the end prize! 5. Use the buddy system. This final tip has proven to be effective when it comes maintaining a workout or exercise schedule – involve a friend or relative who can keep you accountable. Find someone you trust and share your financial goals with them and ask if they will help keep you honest. For example, if you want to pack lunch and save the money, do a weekly check in with your friend to report how well you did. If you both have financial goals, you can exchange them and commit to providing support and motivation to each other by sharing your progress and if necessary, encouraging each other to get back on track with your goals. No matter your financial goals for 2013, I wish you nothing but success and a happy and prosperous New Year! Kathy McGarrigle is chief operating officer for Coast Capital Savings.

applicable, always link a time to those key financial decisions. It’s not a magic formula to get you to follow through, but it will increase your chances of beating the proverbial thief of time – procrastination. Did you resolve to consult with a financial planner this year? When? If you leave the timing up in the air, your New Year’s resolution may evaporate into air as well. Or maybe you resolved that this year you would start a RESP for your daughter. Great goal, but you’ve got too much wiggle room to postpone if you don’t establish a time objective. 4. Picture the results. You probably learned not to count your chickens before they’re hatched. However, the ability to picture the positive end result of the sacrifices you’re making can serve as a powerful motivator. Use a calculator to work out the measurable results that will flow from the changes you’re making, or the plan you’ve developed, if you stick with it over the medium or long-term. How much would you have saved over a year, or three years? Let that figure tempt you. If you

to overreach. If you are now developing a savings habit, determine to set aside an amount that won’t throw your regular living budget totally out of whack. Remember you can’t remedy your finances overnight. Focus on one or two key areas and once you


with any New Year’s resolutions related to your finances? If so, you are not alone. Each year, Canadians set or renew goals in a wide range of areas, and for many, the start of a new year provides the needed motivation to commit to improving their finances. And that’s not surprising, when you consider that in the second quarter of 2012, our household debt-to-income ratio here in Canada was at a troubling high – for every dollar of disposable income, Canadian households owe $1.63. On the other end of the spectrum, we are saving far less than previous generations. In 1980, Canadians saved 15 per cent of their after-tax income. Today, we save only about three per cent. But here’s the rub – it’s great to have all these laudable financial goals; it’s another thing to actually follow through with them. So, for my first column this year, I’d like to share five tips that can help you stick to your goals. 1. Nail down the numbers. To increase your odds of maintaining your financial resolutions, capture your goals in specifics. Don’t be vague about what you’d like to accomplish. For example, you could resolve, “I will save money this year” or “This year, I will save $100 each month.” Which of these two is better? The second, of course. That’s because it’s a precise goal. Apply the same approach to your spending. Instead of vowing to spend less this year, define what you mean by “less.” Want to invest in your retirement or children’s education in 2013? Capture this vision in numbers by determining exactly how much you’d like to contribute to your RRSP or your kids’ RESPs. A good way to nail down your numbers is to actually write them down by creating a budget or financial plan. Clearly quantifying and documenting your financial goals will help you keep your eye on the ball as you move forward. It doesn’t mean you can’t be flexible if circumstances require, but it will ensure you can monitor your progress throughout the year. 2. Keep it real. One of the surest ways to fail is

Prior to this season, he won a gold medal while playing for Canada at the Under-18 World Championship tournament in Slovakia, and at the time said the 30-goal mark in Portland was the goal for this season. “Yeah, absolutely the goals have been exceeded so far,” Petan told “Coming into the season, I knew I was going to get more playing time, but I didn’t know who I’d be playing with and what role I fit into.” Playing on a line with Ty Rattie and Brendan Leipsic, Petan is making the most of skating alongside a pair of players drafted by NHL teams last spring. Leipsic (Nashville Predators) is fourth in the league scoring race, while Rattie (St. Louis Blues) is fourth. “We knew Nic would have a bigger impact than he did last year, but to say we expected him to be performing at this level, we wouldn’t have thought that,” said Travis Green, acting head coach with the Winterhawks. “He’s obviously a highly skilled player, but he’s also very intelligent and has a very high compete level.” Brossoit has also been drafted by an NHL team, and is hoping to play professionally in the Calgary Flames

organization next season. Shaking off the disappointment of getting cut from the Team Canada selection camp just prior to the World Junior Championships in December, he has had an outstanding month of January. The 19-yearold was 7-2 ( won-lost) with a pair of shutouts, with a 1.35 goals against average and a .957 save percentage. In 38 games played, Brossoit has 26 wins and four shutouts. His 2.09 goals against average is third among WHL net minders, behind Mac Carruth of Portland and teammate Tristan Jarry, a North Delta native. Jarry has a 1.62 average with five shutouts, and he and Brossoit have combined to form the league’s best goaltending pair. They have combined for 10 shutouts, a single-season record for the Oil Kings.

Holy Cross wins high school basketball tournament by Rick Kupchuk In a showdown of

the top Senior AA high school boys basketball teams in the province, the Holy Cross Crusaders lived up to their number-one ranking. The Crusaders defeated Brentwood College 72-63 in overtime Saturday night in the championship game of the BrentwoodShawnigan Lake Countdown to the Playoffs tournament last weekend in Duncan. The victory allowed the Crusaders to remain atop the Senior AA provincial polls, while Brentwood College climbed from fourth to second. “They’re a very good team,” said Brentwood coach Blake Gage of the Crusaders. “They’re very big, very athletic. They beat us badly on the offensive and defensive glass. We had to shoot the ball well enough to stay in the game.” The Crusaders played twice in four days to get the final. They defeated the Mark Isfeld Ice of Courtenay 48-44 in the first game Friday morning, getting 18 points and 15 rebounds from team captain Aaron Madaisky. Later in the day, Taylor Browne netted 20 points and Stanley Maduabueke added 14 rebounds in a win over Shawigan Lake. The St. Michaels’ University Blue Jags were the second-ranked team in the provincial polls prior to the tournament, but dropped to third after a 60-54

loss to Holy Cross in a semifinal game. Two Crusaders had a double double, with Madaisky scoring 17 points and 11 rebounds, and Henry Maduabueke putting up 20 points and a dozen rebounds to lift Holy Cross to the champi-

onship game against Brentwood College. “It was obvious that the road to the final had taken a toll on our team as they seemed exhausted,” said coach Matt Lechasseur. “Brentwood came out flying in front of their fans. But as the game

progressed, we began to take control of the game and the glass. “Our ability to dominate the boards was the turning point of the game.” Henry Maduabueke led the Crusaders with 21 points, with Madaisky contrib-

uting 17. Stanley Maduabueke tallied 10 points, grabbed 10 boards and blocked three shots, and earned the tournament’s Most Valuable Player award. Madaisky and Henry Maduabueke were named to the all-star team.

Finding the rhythm of life A group of novice musicians finds harmony at Semiahmoo House

by Boaz Joseph


o one can say rock is dead – not after meeting the Rec Rockers. Guitarist Andrew Kison is one of this band of dedicated musicians who gather every Monday night for a unique jam session at Semiahmoo House. The Rush fan finds it easier each week as he accompanies the band’s old-school rock rhythms and modern favourites on his new axe. Sometimes he’ll show off fresh riffs, working high up on the fretboard. “The more you work on them the better you get,” says the 21-year-old. Alistair, a 23-year-old from South Surrey, borrowed a Semiahmoo House bass when he started playing just over a year ago. Then he went out and bought his own. “I really like it a lot, I find it a blast,” he says. “I’ve learned Three Little Birds (Bob Marley), I’ve Gotta Feeling (Black Eyed Peas) and What Makes You Beautiful (boy band One Direction).” Music therapist Katherine Graff has been guiding the Rec Rockers for the last four of their five years. “The more we do it, the more they get better at listening to each other and following non-verbal cues, which are really important social and communication goals for people with autism,” Graff says. Tonight, there are nine musicians packed into the Semiahmoo House rehearsal room. There are four guitarists (most brought their own), and people on bass, drums, keyboards, an omnichord (an electronic harp), and a lead singer in 28-year-old Adele fan Brenna Finch. The musicians, assisted by support workers Stella Lee, Braden Deans and Krystyl Downing from Semiahmoo House Society, all have some form of autism, acquired brain injury, or Down Syndrome. After a quick rhythm warm-up session – a tapping/clapping circle around a table – the Rec Rockers are off, giving each of the night’s songs three or four full runs. The objective – apart from rockin’ – is for these adults

with developmental disabilities to reach physical, psychological and emotional goals through a musical activity that’s engaging and rewarding. (Semiahmoo House Society, a non-profit organization located in South Surrey – with a Newton satellite office – exists to provide the support to people with disabilities and their families). Lead singer Finch, exuding an impressive amount of confidence in an interview during a break, says the Rec Rockers help her continue the path of getting out of her shell. Looking like a rocker with his long hair, Isaac Vondy, 17, practises on his guitar at home “every day, non-stop.” While his taste is harder-edged, leaning towards Metallica and Pantera, he’s happy to play more mainstream material with the Rec Rockers. “It’s really cool. They think they’re rocking out, but they’re actually practising teamwork,” says Graff.

“People with developmental disabilities such as autism often march to the beat of their own drum, but by playing music together, it brings them out of their shell and allows them to follow a common external stimuli and engage in an enjoyable social activity with others, which can be rare and difficult for them.” The Rec Rockers jam each Monday from 6-8 p.m. at Semiahmoo House, 15306 24 Ave. Registration for a new season takes place each fall. The Rec Rockers will perform on May 29 in Semiahmoo House Society Recreation and Services’ sixthannual Extravaganza at the Surrey Arts Centre, 13750 88 Ave. Performances include The Rec Hot Peppers’ salsa dancing, musical theatre play Into the Woods, and Semi Famous Players’ theatre performance of Jimmy Down the Well. The show starts at 6 p.m. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $21. Sales will be announced soon. For more information, visit or call 604-536-1242.

Elisabeth was born in Winnipeg, MB and is predeceased by her parents, James and Annie Black, brothers, James Wallace and Gilbert Duncan, and sister, Flora Snowdon. After high school, she became a teacher with experience in Bield and Winnipeg, MB. Following her marriage in 1949, she moved to Regina where she raised a family of 6 children, played in the Regina Symphony Orchestra, co-wrote with her husband the operetta, Prairie Pastel, in celebration of the 50th anniversary Central Collegiate in 1959, and taught for the Regina Public Schools. In 1980, the family moved to North Delta, BC where she obtained her Masters in English from UBC at age 65 and taught in the Delta schools until a couple months before her 80th birthday. On Saturday, February 9, 2013, a celebration of her life was officiated by Rev. Ralph Blackman at the St Timothy Anglican Church in Burnaby, BC.
