Surrey man guilty in 2010 rape
Alex Hayer, son of SurreyTynehead MLA Dave Hayer, received a stem cell transplant 10 years ago from his sister Sonia after being diagnosed with leukemia. The transplant saved his life. While Hayer found a match in his sister, the majority of patients needing stem cells must rely on strangers for a life-saving donation. Canadian Blood Services is looking to recruit more stem cell donors – particularly ethnic males aged 17-35.
Jeremy Lee Voakes convicted in violent sexual assault of teen by Sheila Reynolds A SURREY man charged in a violent
sexual assault of a teen in 2010 was found guilty in B.C. Supreme Court Friday (Feb. 22) morning. Jeremy Lee Voakes, 25, was convicted by Justice John Truscott of sexual assault with a weapon and assault. He was acquitted on a third charge of unlawful confinement. During the January trial, the court heard Voakes dragged a young woman into his bedroom, where he hit her, called her degrading names and threatened her with a metal pole before forcing her to have sex. The victim, who is now 20 and cannot be identified under Jeremy Voakes a court-ordered publication ban, said Voakes struck her with his hand every time she refused his demands. She testified he only let her leave when she said a friend was expecting her and would come looking for her. It was that friend who convinced her to call police. Last September, Voakes was the subject of a Surrey RCMP manhunt on an outstanding warrant on the sex assault charges. He has faced several assault-related charges in the past. Voakes’ next court appearance is April 4 when a date for sentencing will be set.

Are you a hidden hero? Volunteers launch stem cell donor awareness drive at SFU Surrey
by Evan Seal VOLUNTEERS AT SFU Surrey were on the lookout for hidden heroes
last week – members of the public who unbeknownst to them, have the power within them to save someone’s life. Members of OneMatch Stem Cell and Marrow Network and OtherHalf Chinese Stem Cell Initiative spent the day educating students and the public about the need for more stem cells donors. Stem cells are the building blocks of cells and are capable of devel-
oping into any of the different types of cells present in a person’s bloodstream. A transplant of healthy stem cells helps those suffering from diseases – such as cancer and immune system disorders – whose blood is unable to produce its own stem cells. Canadian Blood Services runs the nation’s stem cell matching service (OneMatch Stem Cell and Marrow Network) which links possible donors with recipients.

Surrey man deported after wrongful conviction
Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet and Cpl. Bari Emam from the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team speak to the media at RCMP headquarters in Surrey last week regarding the beating death of Janice Shore.
Lawyer says evidence that exonerates him was withheld by Kevin Diakiw A SuRREy man wrongfully con-
victed of sex assault seven years ago has been deported, and at present, cannot be found. A lawyer for Gurdev Singh Dhillon said his client served four years in jail for sexual assault, despite the fact DNA evidence withheld by the Surrey RCMP appears to have exonerated him. The wrongful conviction destroyed his life, causing him to lose his freedom, his Canadian residency, and his wife, Vancouver lawyer Paul Briggs told The Leader. In 2005, Dhillon was convicted of sexually assaulting a woman and was sentenced to four years in jail. Appeals to both sentence and conviction were dismissed in 2006. After Bill Fordy serving his time, Dhillon was deported to India. Because he served more than two years, he lost his right to appeal the deportation. Briggs handled the 2006 appeal for Dhillon. He did not know police were withholding DNA evidence obtained from the victim’s undergarments. The evidence was linked to two other individuals, but not to Dhillon, the lawyer says. It wasn’t until 2011 that Crown counsel learned of the existence of material evidence that had not been
“I... deeply regret the impacts these mistakes may have had on all those involved.”

RCMP Insp. Amrik Virk runs in Tynehead Will represent B.C. Liberals in riding currently held by Dave Hayer
by Monique Tamminga lAnglEy RCMP Insp. Amrik Virk is turning
in his badge and gun for a potential seat in the B.C. legislature. On Thursday, Virk announced he will be the B.C. Liberal candidate in the SurreyTynehead riding. Virk’s last day at the Langley detachment was on Wednesday and he has taken a leave without pay from the RCMP. He is joined by Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender, who announced last week that he is running as a B.C. Liberal in the SurreyFleetwood riding. Fassbender will continue
as mayor, but will step aside if elected. Virk first joined the RCMP in 1987 and climbed the ranks to inspector in 2001. He has been active in youth and gang violence prevention in the Lower Mainland and helped set up the Integrated Gang Task Force. He is a marksman/sniper and a member of the B.C. Association of Chiefs of Police. He spent several years working at the Surrey detachment. “Today’s B.C. Liberals, led by Premier Christy Clark, are the right choice to keep British Columbia on stable economic ground,” said Virk. “Surrey is a growing community, and people here want a gov-
ernment that shares their concerns about jobs, safety and family affordability.” Virk has a background of volunteering in Surrey. He spent six years on the board of directors of the Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation and is vice-chairman of the board at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. He has lived in Surrey with his wife and three daughters for the past 11 years. Surrey-Tynehead is held by B.C. Liberal MLA Dave Hayar who isn’t seeking re-election. Virk will run against NDP candidate Avtar Bains.

Police: Apologize for ‘mistakes’ From page 3 disclosed by police. Special prosecutor Peter Wilson was appointed and Delta Police took over the investigation from RCMP. Wilson has approved charges of sexual assault in the attack against two men, Mohammed Zaaid Ukhttar and Sital Singh Bhatti. A B.C. Criminal Justice Branch investigation concluded Wednesday that there had been a “miscarriage of justice” in the Dhillon case. “This conclusion relates to the fairness of Mr. Dhillon’s trial based on non-disclosure to him of material evidence,” a justice branch release said.
The evidence withheld by police could possibly overturn Dhillon’s conviction, Briggs said. “Which I would certainly want to do for him if I could find him,” Briggs said. Dhillon also lost his wife in the process. “He was actually separated at the time of the alleged offence, but he was trying to reconcile with his wife,” Briggs said. “His wife actually supported him until his appeal.” When that was dismissed, and he faced being registered as a sex offender and deported, she left him for good. Briggs said if he’s able to have the conviction overturned and get

saves lives,” said the 19-year-old SFU Mechatronics student. “If you can do something for another person, that’s what you should do. That’s what my mother always taught me.” Both OneMatch and OtherHalf were on campus last week and on Monday afternoon raising awareness – particularly among ethnic males in the 17-35 age category. More donors in this group are needed. At SFU, potential donors were asked fill out a consent form and submit to a cheek swab,
where a small amount of cell tissue is taken from the donor’s mouth to find the Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) typing. That information is then stored in a database for patient searches. According to Canadian Blood Services, the most likely family members to match a patient will be the siblings. However, there is only a 30-per-cent chance of finding a matching donor in a patient’s family, so the majority must rely on a donor from the OneMatch Stem Cell and Marrow Network to help. Today, nearly 1,000 Canadians are waiting for a stem cell match from an unrelated donor. Almost all stem cell donations are performed in a similar fashion to a blood donation. Donors give a blood sample, the stem cells are removed from the sample, and the remaining blood is put back in the donor’s body.
Dhillon back in the country, there’s a potential for a lawsuit. Surrey RCMP issued an apology on Feb. 20. “I recognize, and understand, that the general public will have concerns about this incident,” said Surrey RCMP Officer in Charge Bill Fordy in a release. “I share those concerns and deeply regret the impacts these mistakes may have had on all those involved. As the Officer in Charge of the Surrey RCMP, I apologize for the mistakes that were made.” Neither Crown nor police would comment further as the matter is before the courts.

The closest large movie theatres are in Guildford and Langley, and public transit isn’t available late at night. Even the new Cloverdale Recreation Centre on Highway 15 can be difficult to get to for those lacking a driver’s licence. Temple decided to take a proactive approach. She was already working with Michelle Howe, who manages the Clayton Crossing Shopping Centre on the other side of Fraser Highway, on ways to engage the community. The two organize a yearly Clayton Day (currently known as The Party on the Hill) for families at their respective shopping centres

The new plan of action for Clayton Heights, in partnership with community groups, includes events for youth at Clayton Hall; a youth summit, kids conference, and early years festival; more hours for the MOYO (Mobile Youth Outreach) bus; bringing Surrey’s Youth Fest to the neighbourhood; and locating a portable building on a local elementary
school site to provide daytime and after school programming for families and youth. “Youth need a balance between structure and programming, and also free time with their peers in a safe place to hang out,” Rasode said. Costs will involve $165,000 from the 2013 operating budget and community agencies, and another $85,000 allocated from the Council Initiatives Fund.

A nod to the NDP
he B.C. Liberal government’s plans to boost income taxes on business and high-income earners takes a page out of the Opposition’s plans, and makes sense. The NDP plan had called for the corporate tax rate to go to 12 per cent, where it stood in 2008. The B.C. Liberals are boosting the corporate tax rate to 11 per cent on April 1. The provincial government also will impose a higher personal income tax rate on individuals with incomes of $150,000 or more. Their provincial income taxes will rise 2.1 per cent to a rate of 16.8 per cent, as of Jan. 1, 2014. Both of these tax increases are necessary at this time, given the financial shackles the province is in. It has been running large deficits, at least partly because of much lower natural gas prices, which have affected government revenues. The province is claiming it will balance the budget in 2013-14, largely because it plans to sell more than $600 million in surplus property. Given that the real estate market has softened somewhat, that is probably an optimistic figure. There is nothing wrong with selling surplus properties, but there are probably too many properties on this list. The provincial government is also boosting MSP premiums again next year. This is completely unfair to moderate income earners, who do not get the exemption from paying the premiums that goes to low-income people. This will be the fifth year in a row the premiums will increase, and they will have jumped by 28 per cent since 2008. There should be no additional boost in MSP premiums. This budget is crafted with the May 14 election in mind, and while its revenue assumptions may be sound, as economist Tim O’Neill asserted, it is very much a political document. It is designed to convince wavering voters that the B.C. Liberals are competent money managers. Over the course of the past 12 years, the Liberals have been sound money managers much of the time, but in recent years their record has been more mixed. The Liberals were hoping for a big boost in revenue through the HST, but that was torpedoed by voters because of the bumbling way the government brought in the tax. That hurt their reputation as competent managers. By adopting part of the NDP platform, the Liberals may have unintentionally telegraphed that the NDP, too, has good fiscal ideas.

Instead he sucker-punches the oil and gas industry at every opportunity, with increasingly flagrant disregard for the rules of science. Public broadcasting referees keep their whistles in their pockets, wary of offending a legend. He’s David Suzuki, and he has evolved from geneticist to TV celebrity to his current role as the Don Cherry of Canadian science, an angry curmudgeon lashing out at his enemies. Earlier I wrote about Suzuki’s hit piece on the Alberta oil sands, featuring selective pollution studies and a celebrity turn by movie director James Cameron, who toured the alleged carbon crime scene in his personal jet helicopter. Suzuki’s latest Scud missile of misinformation was launched Feb. 7 on The Nature of Things. It’s called Shattered Ground, and it borrows heavily from earlier shock docs that target hydraulic fracturing for shale oil and gas. While clearly aimed at the surging shale

These are detectable by sensitive instruments, as is the case with some mining and other industrial activities, but according to the Oil and Gas Commission, they don’t do any actual harm. It should be noted that Suzuki doesn’t do much beyond reading a script on these shows. He has people to load up the propaganda weaponry, just as his ghostwriter in Toronto cranks out the relatively innocuous weekly columns that run in some Black Press publications. In fairness, most episodes of The Nature of Things are in the original spirit of the show. A recent program on an ancient Egyptian aquifer, voiced by Suzuki over National Geographic video footage, would be appropriate for a high school classroom. The same cannot be said for this antifracking screed, which is plainly and recklessly calculated to twist public opinion against a crucial B.C. industry.

The well is dry so my advice to TransLink is to make do with what you have because I am not willing to pay any more. Kevin Buffel
Poor decisions at TransLink Does anyone know how I can get
a job with TransLink? At the company that I currently work at, if I screwed up as bad as these highly paid top management types, I would be out on my ear. I would like to finish my career at a place where poor decisions go unnoticed. I could be CEO in no time. Greg Ruecker
i Don’t think the general population can appreciate the devastation and pain that is brought upon a grieving family member when somebody purposefully steals and destroys a loved one’s memorial site. For what reason do they do this? The roadside memorial sites people see on our streets are not to glorify the crash site. They are a way in which family and friends can come to gather to memorialize, and bring love, kindness and respect to the loss and memory of their deceased loved one. We’re trying to bring a sense positive energy
to the crash site, which so violently and tragically took the life of our innocent family member. Why are people so disrespectful, so ignorant or just so evil? Why would they purposefully desecrate a tribute to someone’s memory? Obviously the perpetrator does not feel or comprehend the pain a family endures every day having lost their child or someone special. Are these disrespectful individuals completely void in knowing the extent of hurt and insult their actions bring a family, when a blatant destruction takes place?
Still, our family is strong. The vandals may have emotionally hurt us, but they have not broken us. We will go forward even stronger. Our family is unique, and it showed in all the characteristics that made up Kassandra’s character. You can desecrate her memorial site, but just know that you’ll never come close to being the type of amazing person she was. Shame on the perpetrator. And how shameful a society it is we live in when it happens four times in less than 21 months.

Plan for the ‘epidemic’ now soon our hospitals will have to deal with the epidemic about to happen: Alzheimer’s disease. There are 70,000 people in B.C. with this heartbreaking disease. Putting these people in an acute-care hospital will cost between $1,200 and $5,000 per day. What should occur now is the construction of more Alzheimer care facilities like the Czorny Alzheimer Centre in Surrey. The cost of care in this type of facility is between $500 and $700.

A drain on taxpayers first they proposed a vehicle
levy (of $130), now it’s a tax increase. Do they know how much it’s going to cost or is this a neverending drain on the taxpayers? If $130 from me will make it work, I’ll give it, but don’t come back saying it’s not enough. Maybe there should be a levy on all the new residents of our region that are helping create the road congestion. My friends moved out of Surrey to escape the tax monster. I’m thinking about it now.

Credible numbers in a balanced budget
Balancing a provincial budget is quite an amazing feat these days. So my hat goes off to B.C.’s finance minister because he managed to do it and he did it with credible numbers that stand up to independent scrutiny. I think the people of B.C. should know this. Compared to Ontario, where they are currently looking at a $12-billion deficit, and oil-rich Alberta, where they are projecting a $4-billion deficit, B.C. is doing pretty darn good. And when you throw in provincial debt levels, B.C. wins again with one of the lowest ratios of taxpayer supported debt compared to the province’s gross domestic product (GDP) numbers: B.C. sits at just 17 per cent while Ontario is at 36 per cent and Quebec at a whopping 48per cent. Spending money you don’t have, as we all know, is a recipe for longterm economic disaster. Fortunately for the people of B.C., Christy Clark and finance minister Mike de Jong get that fact and have refused to take us down that path. A balanced budget and a lower
than average provincial debt-load are things we, our children, and our grandchildren should be very grateful for.

A first for B.C. i feel compelled to write as I have heard so many people commenting on the budget introduced by the
B.C. Liberals. I am normally the first person to look for ways to reduce taxes, especially for the under-privileged insociety. However, I fail to see how a two-per-cent increase on those earning more than $150,000 and a one-per-cent increase to big business is going to hurt them or B.C. I think the more important thing in these economic times is that B.C. is the first province to deliver a bal-
i think it is appalling that the International Olympic Committee has
decided that wrestling should be cut from future Olympics. Wrestling is one of the absolute original events and dates back hundreds of years. If anything needs to be cut, it should be professionals in their chosen sport. They are already at the top of their game and receive obscene amounts of money for the privilege. We already know these athletes are good, others from smaller countries who are not so fortunate don’t stand much of a chance. I am not watching some of these sports during the Olympics. No doubt the event will be losing more fans if this keeps up. Susan Jones
anced budget in Canada since the recession. And as B.C.’s economy gets better, and provincial revenues increase, these specific tax increases should be the first to go. Then the government can continue by reducing taxes even further to encourage our economy and allow businesses to take risks and hire British Columbians.
Marney Hogan, Langley
Showing restraint full marks to Premier Christy Clark and Finance Minister Mike de Jong for continuing to show restraint with respect to government hiring and government wages. The government bureaucracy in this province will be reduced by over 1,400 positions in the coming three years. Good riddance to big government and hello balanced budgets – my kids thank you.

Rise & Teacher sues Delta Shine Negligence alleged after sexual assault charges stayed
by Adrian MacNair
A DeltA high school teacher who had sexual assault charges against him stayed is now suing the Corporation of Delta for damages, alleging negligence by police investigators. Robin J. Wait was charged in November 2011 with one count of sexual assault and one count of sexual interference in connection with a Grade 8 student at Delta Secondary, but those charges were stayed last August after the Crown decided there was no reasonable likelihood of conviction. On Nov. 4, 2011, Delta Police visited the high school after a student told police she was sexually assaulted by an unknown adult near the school’s gymnasium. Wait had initially been identified as the perpetrator of the alleged assault through school yearbook photos provided to witnesses, who are not named

in the civil claim. Police then visited and arrested Wait at his home where his wife and two young girls (then aged two and five) were present, and executed a search warrant to look for a sweater which was allegedly worn on the day of the assault. In the statement of civil claim, Wait says the search was done before authorization was granted. He was then interviewed at the police station and released under certain conditions, including that he have no contact with his own children. Wait was suspended from teaching with pay following the arrest, and then suspended without pay after he was formally charged. The Delta School District launched its own investigation of the incident, which according to spokesperson Deneka Michaud is ongoing. Wait is still technically an employee of the school district, although he has since relocated his family to Vancouver. As a result of the investigation and subsequent charges, Wait is suing the Corporation of Delta for being vicariously liable for the conduct of the investigators. Wait is seeking damages for negligent investigation, aggravated damages, punitive damages, and costs incurred. The statement of claim is seeking redress for loss of past and future employment income as a result of damage to his reputation and emotional distress and anxiety. It also states Wait was arrested and charged without reasonable and probable grounds. “I am an innocent man putting his faith in the justice system. Scary,” he posted on his Twitter account last May. Wait could not be reached for comment. No response has been filed to the notice of claim and no allegations have been proven in a court of law.

Guilty plea coming for Christmas Day murder? Alok Gupta was killed while working in a corner store by Sheila Reynolds
Kwantlen Polytechnic University, was covering a shift at Ken’s Grocery near 96 Avenue and 117 Street when he was shot in what police believe was a botched robbery. Police said Gupta was here on a student visa and was not involved in any sort of criminal activity. The killing was not targeted, said police, and Gupta was “simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.” Whiteside’s next court appearance is scheduled for April 4.
A Surrey man charged in con-
nection with the convenience store killing of 27-year-old Alok Gupta on Christmas Day 2011 is expected to plead guilty. Court records indicate William Andrew Whiteside, who was charged last July with several offences, including seconddegree murder, intends to enter a plea in April in Surrey Provincial Court. It’s uncertain which charge(s) he will plead guilty to. Gupta, a business student at

Charred body found
Surrey records eighth murder of the year by Kevin Diakiw Police are now investigat-
ing the eighth murder of the year in Surrey, as charred remains were found Sunday
just after noon on Colebrook Road west of 125A Steet. Because of the condition of the body, police have not determined the race or gender of the remains. The discovery was just two blocks from where the body of 26-six-year old Jaskaran Singh Sandhu was found on Jan. 28. The Integrated Homicide
Investigation Team (IHIT) has taken conduct of the investigation. “Initial details and observations by the attending officers indicate that this is a homicide,” said Cpl. Bari Emam. “We are only hours into this investigation and cannot confirm the gender or the identity of the victim.”

NDP vows to review hospital pay parking Complaints continue over ‘cash grab’ by health authorities by Jeff Nagel NDP leaDer Adrian Dix is promising to examine whether the policy of charging patients and visitors to park at Lower Mainland hospitals is appropriate. But he’s not guaranteeing an NDP government would handle the pay parking issue any differently and says the province can’t simply give up the money that’s generated. “I take it seriously and I’m going to review it,” Dix told Black Press in an interview. “But you have to find the revenue. It’s not very much, but you still have to find it.” The Fraser and Vancouver Coastal health authorities took in $19 million from parking fees in 2011 – less than one per cent of their combined budgets. “If you’re going to say no to that revenue then you have to find other revenues,” Dix said. “It’s not as easy as saying ‘I’d like people to park for free’.” The cost of paying to park at hospitals has been a growing source of complaints in recent years from people who argue the fees are unfair. “It’s a cash grab,” charges Peter Kirsebom, an 82-year-old South Surrey senior who says he was going to start a petition the last time he got worked up about the issue. “In Delta, you don’t pay anything,” he said, referring to that municipality’s bylaw banning pay parking at the hospital. He said his appointments at the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre often run half an hour late, forcing him to shell out for two hours instead of one. “That’s eight bucks – it’s too much.” Maple Ridge’s mayor recently vowed, after similar local complaints, to explore whether his municipality could follow Delta’s footsteps and either ban pay parking or persuade Fraser Health to drop the fees. Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid told CTV last month it was difficult for health authorities to absorb parking costs and the current system was unlikely to change.
Can-Am* OUTLANDER 400 COURTESY OF:
The Canadian Medical Association Journal in 2011 argued pay parking amounts to an unfair user fee that can disrupt patient care. It said parking charges should be waived at least for patients as they add avoidable stress and may cause some to abruptly end a consultation to feed a meter and avoid fines. Dix said there are arguments for dropping the fees or altering the structure, but added rural B.C. residents “face more dramatic issues” because of the centralization of hospital services in more distant centres. Fraser Health spokesman Roy Thorpe-Dorward said about one-third of the parking fee revenue collected goes to providing parking services – paving, lighting, security and management fees to a pay parking firm such as Impark. The remaining two-thirds goes into general health system funding. Thorpe-Dorward said there are no plans to change the system, nor has the health authority given up on extending pay parking to the “free” hospitals in Delta and Mission. “We still have a goal over the long term of introducing pay parking at those sites to offset the costs,” he said. “But it’s not something we’re pushing or pursuing.” He said health authorities have numerous programs where patients and others may get discounted monthly parking passes and in some cases complimentary parking. Renal dialysis patients, for example, get free parking permits. Fines issued to patients whose time on the meter ran out because their appointment ran too long can be reversed on compassionate grounds, he added. Part of the rationale for pay parking is that it encourages stall rotation, so some spaces are available when people need them and they aren’t hogged by users from surrounding businesses. Delta’s bylaw against pay parking has also blocked TransLink from charging at its park and ride there.

And unless the North Delta Devils can somehow win four straight against the Pacific Junior Hockey League’s best team in the regular season, their season is about to come to an end in the next week. The Devils trail the Sockeyes 3-0 in their best-of-seven quarterfinal series. They lost the first game 3-0 on Thursday night in Richmond, then dropped a 3-2 overtime decision Friday on home ice in the Sungod Arena. They were at home again Saturday night, and were drubbed 13-2 in a one-sided contest. Richmond scored at least three times in each period, went fivefor-eight on the powerplay, and outshot the home team 32-15 over the first 40 minutes of play.

points on a three-game road trip was more than enough for the Surrey Eagles to clinch top spot in the BC Hockey League’s Mainland Division. The five-point boost – courtesy of two overtime wins and one tie – gave the Eagles a record of 33-13-3-4 (won-lost-overtime loss-tied), good for 73 points, 11 more than the second-place Chilliwack Chiefs, who have lost two straight.
On Friday, Surrey was led by forward Adam Tambellini, who scored four of the team’s five goals – including the OT winner – in a 5-4 comeback win over the Powell River Kings at Hap Parker Arena.

Gold medals for BCAQ athletes Provincial meet in Surrey by Rick Kupchuk iT was a near sweep by the BC Aquasonics
(BCAQ) at last weekend’s National Stream Provincial Synchronized Swimming Championships at the Surrey Sports and Leisure Centre The BCAQ team won gold medals in six of seven events, the local swimmers making a significant contribution to the club’s success. “I am extremely proud of all of our athletes,” said BCAQ head coach Susan Kemper. “Not only did our athletes win gold in their respective events, their outstanding scores are a reflection of their ability, conditioning, training, and readiness to compete. We have positioned our teams for medal contention at the national qualifier in Calgary in March.” Surrey swimmers Natasha Heine and Erin Williams were on the BCAQ Senior National Stream Combo team which took first place with a total score of 78.03, six points better than the runner-up Vancouver Pacific Wave. Williams also posted the top score in the Senior Solo Free category. The 13-15 BCAQ National Stream Team edged Vancouver Pacific Wave by 1.5 points to place first. Courtney Armstrong, Jessica Friesen, Madyson Stickley, and Nancy Zhang, all of Surrey, were on the winning team. Also winning gold medals were Natasha Heine of Surrey and White Rock’s Mackenzy Higgins in the Senior Free Duet, and Stickley and Alanna Stobbe of Abbotsford in the 13-15 Duet event. BCAQ teams were also the gold medalists in the Senior Team Free Routine, and the 13-15 Age Group Team Routine.

against the Bulldogs, but neither four-onfour or three-on-three overtime play solved anything, and the game finished in a 4-4 draw. And though it was the only game of the weekend in which Surrey did not earn two points, the one-point earned from the tie was enough to clinch the division, as the Chiefs dropped a 5-3 game to Prince George the same night. As his linemate did
the night before, it was Shaw who led the Eagles’ offensive charge against the ‘Dogs, with two goals and two assists, while Tambellini chipped in with a goal and an assist. Michael Stenerson also scored, rounding out the Eagles’ scoring. Goaltender Michael Santaguida, who stopped 28 shots to earn the win over the Kings Friday, was also in tip-top form, making 48 saves.
With the division crown locked up, Santaguida was given the day off Sunday against the Cowichan Valley Capitals, and affiliate goaltender Brenden Sharp got the start. Sharp stopped 27 Caps’ shots to earn the win. The Eagles led 3-1 after 40 minutes, but allowed Cowichan to claw back in the third, tying the game on goals from Jesse Neher and Luke Gordon.
In overtime, the deadlock did not last long, as Shaw scored his fourth goal of the weekend to end the game. The Eagles have three regular-season games left, two of which are at home. This weekend, they play only once – Sunday afternoon at the South Surrey Arena against Cowichan, before playing the Coquitlam Express in a home-and-home series March 8-9.

Border line bargains
Nearly 75% of Metro Vancouver residents say they regularly travel to the U.S. to shop. But does crossing the border actually result in a better deal?
Poll shows prices are driving the trips south
by Matthew Hoekstra
mages of Canadians swarming a Bellingham Costco and scooping up milk jugs gave a couple of local graphic designers an idea. Dan MacClure and business partner Jay McMahon of Richmond-based Creative Apparatus designed red-and-white T-shirts emblazoned with the words “Milk Piranha.” It was their response to an anti-Canadian-shopper Facebook page that popped up last year, in which the term was used to describe milk-thirsty Canadians. “Overall the reaction to the Milk Piranha T-shirts was amazing,” said MacClure. “People got the humour and surprisingly the majority of our sales were to U.S. customers.” Now some of the millions of Canadian consumers who cross the border each year can wear the tongue-and-cheek shirt when hunting for bargains. But when it comes to deals down south, there is often more than meets the eye. Border delays and hassles, high gas prices, passport and identification requirements and warranty issues can often be overlooked. Possible duty fees at the border and state sales tax at the American register can further add to the cost of a bargain. ■ Gas There is also the hidden cost of the impact to ■ Groceries the local economy. “It makes a huge dif■ Clothing/shoes/ ference when individuals accessories spend their money locally because those ■ Electronics/ dollars create local jobs computers and support local business which benefits the ■ Furniture entire community,” said Barry Grabowski, chair ■ Dining out of the Richmond Chamber of Commerce. ■ Overnight A 2012 report from accommodation BMO Capital Markets noted there are over 50 ■ Entertainment million visits to the U.S. by Canadian residents ■ Casino gambling each year—about oneand-a-half visits for – Insights West poll every Canadian. Record numbers of Canadians are heading south, lured across the line by everything from food and clothing to electronics and vehicles. But with big-ticket items, warranty coverage is not a sure thing in Canada. According to the Canadian Automobile Dealers Association, warranties of vehicles purchased in the U.S. are often not valid in Canada. Some brands do cover some warranty issues of American cars in Canada, but free scheduled service or maintenance packages might not be valid here. The Bank of Canada suggests that crossborder shopping accounts for less than two per cent of consumer spending, but the BMO report suggests the number could be as high as 10 per cent.

Graphic designers Dan MacClure and Jay McMahon model their tongue-incheek T-shirts that fire back at Americans angry with cross-border Costco shoppers. Nonetheless, the BMO report suggests, Canadians are seeing the price gap drop between American and Canadian goods. The bank’s random sample of goods found Canadian retail prices were 14 per cent higher in 2012 than in the U.S.—down from the previous year’s differential of 20 per cent. But that figure doesn’t include costs of duty and transportation. “We also found that a previously enormous price spread in one specific item (gas barbecues) has all but vanished on price reductions in Canada,” says the report, which notes barbecues were actually two
per cent less expensive in Canada at the time of the survey. “However, the unusual differential on running shoes, highlighted last year, persists.” Whether they’ll save money or not, Canadians can still cross the line in style by ordering a Milk Piranha T-shirt or bumper sticker of their own through the Creative Apparatus website. Said Dan MacClure: “We’ve had sales all across the U.S. and Canada – from Oregon to New York and from Victoria to Montreal. We also sold a few to the UK – crazy.”

A LARGE majority of Metro Vancouver and Fraser Valley residents regularly cross the border to shop in the U.S., according to a new poll. Nearly three-quarters of respondents to the Insights West poll said they drove across the border to shop in the last year and many are making frequent forays for crossborder shopping. On average, those polled drove to the U.S. more than five times in the past year, about half had crossed three or more times and a sizable minority of 15 per cent said they’d crossed 13 times or more. Cross-border trips are becoming more common, the poll shows, finding 21 per cent say they are crossing more often, while 12 per cent are going less often and the remaining two-thirds are unchanged. Lower prices for the same products in the U.S. were the top reason for trips over the line, cited by 85 per cent of those polled. “Metro Vancouver and Fraser Valley shoppers are very conscious that retail prices in the U.S. are often better than in Canada,” Insights West senior vice-president Catherine Dawson said. The strong Canadian dollar was also a factor listed by 84 per cent, 74 per cent said cheaper flights out of Seattle or Bellingham was a reason and 69 per cent listed the more generous rules on duty-free exemptions on overnight trips announced by the federal government last June. Dawson said it doesn’t appear likely that online shopping through U.S. websites will replace all the cross-border shopping of Lower Mainland residents. Many of those polled said they believe it’s cheaper to drive to the U.S. than to pay shipping for products bought online from American firms. See POLL / Page 15

Do your research before shopping online Shipping charges and duty fees cancel out any perceived savings, store owners say
by Monique Tamminga IT MAY not be cheaper
to shop online through American companies, say two Langley store owners. In fact, the better deal is right here at home, said Forever Yours Lingerie owner Sonya Perkins. Before deciding to launch an online store, Perkins decided to do some comparisons.
“I spent a day online shopping. I bought things from Canada and the U.S.,” said Perkins. “What we were finding is customers would come in and try on bras, go with one of our fitters and take down all the proper measurements and then tell us they would buy the bra online from the States,” she said. “There is this perceived idea out there that they
can get it at a lower price.” Not so. And here’s why, she said. “A bra we sell at $69 may be $5 cheaper in the U.S.,” Perkins said. “By the time it gets to your door and you have paid the duty (of 18 per cent of anything not made in Canada or the U.S.), and delivery, which is usually 25-per-cent higher than what we can
ship, it costs a lot more from the States.” She points to a recent example of a woman who liked a particular swimsuit her store carries for $109. Online in the States, it went for $99. “It would cost her around $35 in shipping.” Online party supplier Party Monkey shares Perkins’ frustrations about “perceived savings” by shopping in the U.S.
Party Monkey owner Carla Wood said they are up against a big American competitor and it’s a struggle to make customers aware the prices they offer are the same, and less when you factor in
More than three-quarters of those polled also said it’s just fun to take the trip to the U.S. and 69 per cent said they can find products not available in Canada when they shop in the U.S. More than one-third of those polled said they have a U.S. mail box or address where they can pick up goods they’ve ordered but which either can’t be shipped to Canada or would cost too much once shipping is included. Buying gas was the most popular purchase – 89 per cent
said they’d fuel up either regularly or occasionally on trips to the U.S. – but clothing, shoes and accessories (81 per cent) and groceries (78 per cent) were also among the spending leaders. About 70 per cent of those polled agree Canadians shopping in the U.S. hurts the local B.C. economy, and about half agreed it may mean job losses here. Those polled were roughly split when asked if cross-border shopping is a false economy, where they spend more on travel than is saved. An overwhelming 91 per cent of those polled said Canadian retail-
ers must improve their pricing if they want to prevent shoppers heading instead to the U.S. “These opinions suggest that local residents are more concerned with their own finances and getting a good deal when they shop than they are with how their behaviour might be impacting the broader Canadian economy and population,” Dawson said. The online survey of 1,077 Lower Mainland adults was conducted Jan. 30 to Feb. 3.

Gas price gap a powerful cross-border draw But ethanol levels, U.S. medical costs are among the risks to weigh by Jeff Nagel THE LURE of much lower
gas prices south of the border is one of the biggest factors attracting Canadians who may spend money on other purchases once they’re in the U.S. Bargain-minded gas shoppers will often find they can pay about 35 cents less a litre by crossing the border, after converting the cost from U.S. gallons to cents per litre and adjusting for the currency differential. That can add up to savings of about $20 for a typical 60-litre tank full. The difference in gas price lies almost entirely in the far higher taxes charged on this side of the border. Drivers in Metro Vancouver pay nearly 50 cents in taxes on every litre – 17 cents to TransLink, 8.5 cents in provincial gas tax to the B.C. government, 10 cents in federal excise tax to Ottawa, 6.67 cents in B.C. carbon tax and five per cent extra in federal GST. While the carbon tax is revenue-neutral in that it is returned back to taxpayers in lower income tax, B.C. drivers who cross the border to gas up get the benefits of the tax transfer without having to actually pay into it. According to tax watchdogs, 2012 was the first year Metro Vancouver drivers paid
out more than $1 billion in combined gas taxes charged at the pumps. Over the line in Washington State, drivers are charged the equivalent of an extra 14.8 cents per litre in combined taxes. (The state tax is 37.5 cents per U.S. gallon, while the federal gas tax
is 18.4 cents per gallon; there are just under 3.8 litres in a U.S. gallon). “It’s just too tempting,” Canadian Taxpayers Federation B.C. director Jordan Bateman said. “People can’t afford to be patriotic.” Prices generally aren’t as low at the U.S. stations closest to the border. “Anecdotally, it gets cheaper the further you go down into the states,” Bateman said. “But even if you stop at the first gas station you’re probably saving 25 cents a litre.” The hefty savings prompt some Canadians to bring multiple jerry
cans with them to load up on yet more gas. Any import of gasoline beyond the capacity of your vehicle is, officially, subject to duty. But cases abound, as with other purchases south of the border, of Canadian border officials turning a blind eye to vehicles returning stacked with fuel cans. As for rumours that U.S. gas is lower octane and therefore worse for engines, there’s no truth to it, according to Ken
Cousin, B.C. Automobile Association’s vicepresident of road service assistance. “There’s really no statistical difference in the quality of [regular] gasoline,” he said. “It’s 87 octane.” But he said crossborder gas shoppers may run into different levels of added ethanol. Canadian gas is allowed to contain a maximum of 10 per cent ethanol, but U.S. stations are allowed to sell higher proportions. “You want to watch the ethanol concentration,” Cousin said, adding a good rule of thumb is to
avoid anything higher than 10 per cent. “When you start getting into 25, 30 and 50 per cent ethanol, it will damage older cars and it’s expensive.” Cousin said drivers intending to head to the U.S. to get cheap gas should factor in the extra distance they have to travel and the time idling in border lines in gauging the final extent of their savings. He also said anyone who crosses the border – no matter for how brief a time – should have travel medical insurance to guard against disastrously high U.S. medical system costs if they have an accident or health problem. “Things happen,” Cousin said. “Even if you’re going down for a quick 15 minutes.” Jock Finlayson, executive vice-president of the Business Council of B.C., says the “dramatically higher” gas taxes charged here have almost certainly amplified the “epidemic” of cross-border shopping, although he said it’s impossible to say by how much. He noted that unlike other urban areas in Canada, the B.C. Lower Mainland has one million residents within a 25 to 30 minute drive of the border and many are NEXUS card holders who can bypass long border lines. “Anything that can be done to reduce fuelrelated taxes in B.C./ Greater Vancouver would help to mitigate the current leakage of retail spending dollars,” Finlayson said.
“But given how big the tax differentials are, it would take a substantial
reduction here to make much of a difference.” TransLink’s gas tax has
proven volatile as some drivers gas up instead in the U.S. or Fraser Valley.

A REPORT on a Senate investigation of higher Canadian prices opens with the sentence “Canadians are feeling ripped off.” The report by the Standing Senate Committee on National Finance, “The CANADA-USA Price Gap,” notes large price gaps remain between the two countries even when the Canadian dollar is worth as much or more than the American currency. Released Feb. 4, the report calls for a review of government policies that boost costs, including cross-border tariffs that slap additional charges on imported goods coming into Canada, unique-toCanada safety regulations that can add to a car’s expense, and a policy that aims to protect the Canadian book publishing industry by allowing a 10-per-cent mark-up on the price of American books imported into Canada. Committee chair Senator Joseph Day said there was no single explanation for the price discrepancies. “The study showed that there are many variables that contribute to the price of products,” Day said. For example, the report notes that some American manufacturers charge Canadian retailers 10-50 per cent more than U.S. retailers for the same products. When Canadian companies complain to the U.S. suppliers, they are told there are three main reasons – Canadians are used to paying more; the higher costs cover the expense of maintaining offices and warehouses in Canada; and the mark-ups compensate distributors for the higher cost of doing business in Canada. The committee heard 53 witnesses over eight months of public hearings that started in the fall of 2011, including government officials, consumer groups, retailers, manufacturers, importers, exporters, experts from the academic sector, accountants and independent economists. Among the witnesses, Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney suggested the price differences
