Pledge made to remove traffic light bottleneck

Transit, education and health care highlighted in Surrey mayor’s annual State of the City address

Education, innovation seen as key to success

Funds tabled for interchange at Highway 91 and 72 Avenue by Jeff Nagel MOTORISTS WHO use Highway 91

by Kevin Diakiw MORE SCHOOLS, effective transit and enhanced health care were

some of the highlights of the mayor’s State of the City address delivered on Wednesday afternoon. Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts spoke to a crowd of 500 at the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel, where she announced new initiatives to help foster improved health care, transit and education. Surrey will be partnering with the Surrey School District to create a “Campus of Learning-Active Living and Sport Excellence” in Grandview. The plan is to build a new high school next to where Surrey is building a recreation and aquatic centre at 24 Avenue and 168 Street. Both the city and school district own land there, and will be lobbying the provincial government for capital Dianne Watts funding to build the school. “This new model, we are pleased to say, can be replicated anywhere in the city,” Watts told the crowd. “This campus includes an aquatic centre, new secondary school, community campus of support services, and shared infrastructure.” The new high school would take pressure off the overcrowded Earl Marriott Secondary School at 16 Avenue and 157 Street. Watts also said more capacity for post-secondary education must be a top priority for the provincial government.

“Is this a winkwink, nudgenudge way of opening up development for MK?”

“We are witnessing and participating in the building of a very unique city.”

may get a long-promised interchange at 72 Avenue to replace the traffic lights there that often cause long back-ups. The federal and provincial governments have pledged up to $10 million each, while the rest of the $30-million highway improvement project would be funded through local contributions. “This new interchange along Highway 91 will help relieve Eliza Olson congestion,” said Don Fast, the federal minister for international trade and Abbotsford MP. There’s no timeline for beginning work on the project, which promises a free flow of traffic on Highway 91 and to and from 72 Avenue.

Conspiracy theories thriving in B.C., new poll shows Existence of UFOs, suppressed cancer cure most popular by Jeff Nagel A new poll shows a majority of

B.C. residents believe UFOs exist and 38 per cent believe a cure for cancer has been found but is being suppressed by government or big pharmaceutical firms. Insights West president Steve Mossop said he was stunned by how many people reported believing in “some pretty outrageous conspiracy theories” in the polling firm’s latest survey. “I nearly fell off my chair,” he said. “It’s amazing the level of skepticism that exists around certain things that most would regard as scientific truths Steve mossop or historical events.” A large minority of 34 per cent buy one of the John F. Kennedy assassination conspiracy theories, while 29 per cent believe that Princess Diana was assassinated or that human beings have been cloned. Fully one-quarter believe the 9/11 terror attacks were a U.S. government conspiracy. Fewer believed that lotteries are rigged (20 per cent), Osama Bin Laden is still alive (13 per cent), the moon landings were a hoax (10 per cent), Elvis is still alive (five per cent), or that dinosaurs never existed (four per cent.) A parallel poll of Albertans also placed UFOs and a suppressed cancer cure atop the list but at lower numbers of 45 and 36 per cent, respectively.

Admitting pot use at U.S. border may get you banned Border guards take new tack after Washington’s legalization vote by Jeff Nagel poT-SmokinG B.C. residents are increas-

Canadian marijuana users may want to be careful what questions they answer at the u.S. border, according to a lawyer in Blaine, wash.

ingly being banned from entering the U.S. as American border guards try to stem the flow of Canadian marijuana tourists in the wake of Washington State’s weed legalization vote late last year. Blaine lawyer Len Saunders said he’s seeing more cases of B.C. residents being permanently denied entry after trying to carry pot across the border. Because marijuana is now legal to possess under state law, Canadians caught bringing less than an ounce across aren’t charged, as they were in the past. “I’m seeing no prosecutions – zero since

November,” Saunders said. “But there’s more confusion.” What happens now, he said, is pot-packing Canucks have their stash confiscated and are then interrogated under oath about their drug-using habits. Admit that you’ve ever smoked or used marijuana in your life, he said, and you can be deemed inadmissible to the U.S. because you’ve confessed to a crime of moral turpitude. “The key is to not admit that you’ve ever used it,” Saunders said, stressing he isn’t counselling anyone to lie under oath. He noted anyone could be questioned about past marijuana use at the border, whether Customs and Border Protection agents find pot on them or not.

Past studies have found a majority of B.C. residents report using marijuana at least once. Saunders said he’s increasingly had calls from Canadians deemed inadmissable over pot use who say they can’t believe it happened to them and must now apply for a tough-to-obtain re-entry waiver also required for anyone with a criminal conviction who wants to return to the U.S. Saunders noted Washington’s legalization of pot doesn’t extend to use by minors age 18 or under. And anyone who brings a “truckload” of pot over the border can still expect to be prosecuted under U.S. federal law.

Innovation Boulevard: High-tech research area From page 1 “Almost a quarter of all B.C. students come from Surrey/South of the Fraser. In Surrey we have 13 spaces for every for every 100 students,” Watts said. “That simply isn’t good enough.” It means that local universities have to increase the academic requirements for students wanting to attend. “Surrey high school students who graduate with a 75-per-cent average do not have access into our universities,” she said. “Due to lack of funded spaces, the acceptance rate is 85 per cent.” Another challenge facing Surrey is the dearth of accessible public transit, Watts said. “Not having rapid transit infrastructure is a significant problem in shaping our growing city,” Watts said. “We have less than six kilometres (of SkyTrain) for 500,000 people, and 70 per cent of the region’s growth is coming south of the Fraser.” The answer to that problem will only come with legislative change to the TransLink form of governance, she said. “The mayors and I – as chair of the Metro Vancouver Transportation Committee – are asking the government to change provincial legislation, so we can move this region forward, shape future growth and ensure we have a livable sustainable region.” Watts said exciting advances are taking shape in the area of health care for Surrey, including the new critical care tower being built at Surrey Memorial Hospital and the Jim Pattison outpatient care facility. More can, and will, be done, she said. Watts also announced the further development

of “Innovation Boulevard,” a high-tech research area spanning from Surrey Memorial Hospital (13750 96 Ave.) to SFU Surrey in City Centre – currently home to 180 health-related businesses. The city is looking into bringing high-speed fibre optic data cables to the area to enrich the connectivity for companies locating along this boulevard. “Access to ultra high-speed digital infrastructure is a key element for success,” Watts said. “We want to harness new opportunities in the health technologies industry, which is worth about $300 billion a year. We have state-of-the-art health facilities and the brightest minds at work in Surrey.  Innovation Boulevard will connect the dots and build a world-class centre that will enhance patient care and propel economic growth in our city.” The mayor went on to announce the next phase in the city’s community consultation program, a long-term, online initiative with B.C.-based technology company Vision Critical called City Speaks: Your Surrey, Your Say (www.surrey.ca/ cityspeaks).

Project: Still many years away Heart From page 1

Delta officials haven’t yet signed off on it because Delta council and Metro Vancouver must first decide on whether to approve MK Delta Lands’ww controversial proposal for an 89-acre mixed-use development at the intersection. MK Delta Lands has offered to pay for Delta’s share of the interchange, but Delta Chief Adminstrative Officer George Harvie said final land-use decisions on the development are at least a year away. He said actual interchange construction could take another three years, depending on soil conditions. If MK Delta Lands’ project was ultimately rejected, he said, the municipality could still decide to fund the interchange itself. Burns Bog Conservation Society President Eliza Olson said she fears the offer by the developer to pay for the interchange and end one of the region’s most persistent traffic jams amounts to an inducement that could sway Delta council’s land-use decision. “Is this a wink-wink, nudge-nudge way of opening up development for MK?” she asked. Olson argues both the development and the pro-

Surrey/North Delta Leader 7

One way or another, garbage must go Focus on

Re: “MetRO VancOuVeR should end garbage

incineration: Study.” So, a left-leaning think-tank thinks we should not build waste-to-energy incinerators, and should phase out the one we have. How surprising. If Metro Vancouver was leaning towards a new big dump site by Harrison Lake or some old-growth forest, they would be screaming

about that instead. They will always come out against whatever logical solution emerges from reasonable public debate. Of course we should recycle, although it’s always interesting how their suggested ways of encouraging more recycling always involve more taxes and/or fees. These incinerators were chosen, and need to be built, because they reduce garbage heading

to landfills and supply the energy our society needs. Until that magical distant future when everything is recycled, we need some ways to dispose of the trash we create, and these incinerators are the best option we currently have.

‘There is hope for a good life’

On MaRch 28, Cyndie Richards

wrote in The Leader about her son’s mental illness and addiction to drugs and alcohol (“Mark my words: This will end badly”). As a survivor of severe bipolar illness and alcoholism, it pains me to hear about parents who have children suffering from mental illness. Thirty years ago, at age 23, I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. At the same time, I was a full-blown alcoholic. For the next 15 years, I built a business in Toronto and Montreal. When I was not working I was committed to a psychiatric ward of a hospital due to a severe manic episode. On 12 different occasions I spent six to eight weeks in hospital recovering from psychotic episodes in Toronto, Montreal, Winnipeg, Calgary and Vancouver. I was committed to the psychiatric ward of hospitals over and over again simply because I would not stop drinking. There is a genetic component that runs in my family making us predisposed to mental illness. I lost one of my brothers, who at age 40 took his own life due to untreated bipolar illness and alcoholism. I’ve also lost four other family members to this disease. On August 15, 1993, I was discharged from St. Paul’s Hospital and sent to a men’s recovery home. The accommodations didn’t meet with my approval – it wasn’t a fourstar hotel – it offered a room with four men and a mattress on the floor.

i wOuld suggest a new SkyTrain link between the Expo/Millennium and Canada Line on Marine Drive and carrying it on to UBC. This will be much cheaper than running a train to UBC along the Broadway corridor. The population in the Fraser Valley is growing very fast and why make people who live south go all the way north to downtown then back south to Richmond? Same for UBC. Going south along Marine Drive to UBC will save 45 minutes each way. They should survey how many students are from Burnaby, Coquitlam, Surrey and Richmond. They rely on transit. It also makes sense to build transit for the future. The population will grow very fast along Marine Drive as there is land available to accommodate people.

They asked me to come to the house before going home. When I arrived my father gave me a letter to read. It said, “If you are hospitalized in the future and alcohol is involved we will not support you in any way – we will abandon you.” After 25 years if denying my serious mental illness and alcoholism I finally woke up. The word “abandon”

shook me to the core. I quit drinking and went into recovery. That was almost 20 years ago. Many factors played a role in my recovery, including my parent’s tough love and a psychiatrist who specialized in the treatment of mood disorders. Also, I had become completely willing to surrender my will and lead a life based upon a few simple

spiritual principles. I asked the universe for help and it came. Today I spend my time trying to reach out to others and let them know that there is hope for a good life beyond mental illness. Mental illness is an obstacle in life, not a road block. Mark Fernandes Surrey

Re: “Online pRedatOR now living in Surrey.”

I think that people like Jeffrey Goddard should be prevented from going to cities with a large number of children, in this case, Surrey. I fear it will make the city more unsafe. It will increase the crime rate in Surrey. At least he should be watched and prevented from going to public places (like a park or a library) or on the Internet. I think the best that can be done is also to educate students to ignore anyone that they meet on the Internet. Kids will be the future generation, and we want a strong generation, not a group of unhappy, timid kids living in fear of an assault. Jon Li

sidering the billions already collected in various “road taxes,” resent their implementation. However, since they do exist then we all should have to pay our share. I think that since tolls, vehicle levies, and gas taxes can be dodged, the only method reasonably certain to ensure that everyone contributes

is some form of property or income tax. Owners, renters, drivers, cyclists, transit riders, even ardent pedestrians – all receive benefits from our transportation systems and all should contribute, not just the easily targeted. Nick Mayar

Pot use isn’t a border crime

Re: “adMitting pot use

at U.S. border may get you banned,” The Leader, April 2. I think being banned from the U.S. for smoking marijuana isn’t right. It’s just a plant. It won’t even harm anyone besides the user. Think of it this way: You go to

the U.S. border, you’re carrying a six-pack of beer in your car, you get permanently banned from the U.S. It’s no worse. Alcohol does more damage than pot. You shouldn’t get banned from an entire country because of carrying marijuana.

I think this rule is unnecessary and it should be removed. It’s just going to cause more border crimes. I hope Washington will think twice about it. It really is a silly and unnecessary law. Ethan Schroeder

How liberal are Liberals? i peRsOnally don’t care whether

or not Christy Clark heads the B.C. Liberal party and thus the provincial government; what does frustrate me are all of the blatant misnomers that so many political parties adopt. B.C.’s Liberal party was once fairly close to being truly “liberal,” albeit while under the most progressive of the three Gordons, when the party finally made it onto the scene as official Opposition in 1991, on top of smoldering Socred ruins. But the current B.C. Liberal party does not get any closer to being “liberal” than whatever’s “liberal” about their true libertarian ideology (look it up – it can get kind of scary in its more fervent mode). I guess it’s all something quite like that paradox Progressive Conservative party thing.

the course as an “intense” combination of classroom study and hands-on exercises for those with already a good knowledge of gardening. “It’s like being in school,” she notes. “There are assignments you have to do.” In recent years, with new pesticide bylaws, there has been an increase in interest in organic gardening. “There’s more demand on landscape professionals to maintain a garden without the use of chemicals,” explains Fleming. “It helps them build up their credentials and market themselves to potential clients – to put something after their name.” The Organic Master Gardener course provides continuing education credits in arboriculture and landscape agriculture and can lead to eligibility for an examination that leads to certification in organic land care from the Society for Organic Urban Landcare (SOUL). To teach the course, Fleming will be joined by Jennifer Ryan, an instructor of horticulture at the University of the Fraser Valley. The course will focus on healthy soil, the basis of all organic gardening. Students will learn about composting, small-space urban landscaping, water-wise planting, gardening for habitat, Japanese zen gardens and edible gardens. Students will be provided with a textbook and access to resource materials through an Earthwise “online campus.” The Organic Master Gardener program will run every Monday from 6-9 p.m. from April 8 to June 24, including a few weekends. Tuition is $695 plus HST. To learn more, email info@earthwisesociety. bc.ca, visit www.earthwisesociety.bc.ca or call 604-946-9828.

Mental illness: Not a crime

Surrey RCMP liaison treats people with mental health issues like clients, not criminals

EVAN SEAL / THE LEADER

Const. Taylor Quee, the Surrey RCMP’s mental health liaison, outside the holding cells at the main detachment on Highway 10 near 143 Street. Between 30 and 40 per cent of police calls involve a complaint about someone with a mental health issue, and they don’t belong in jail, Quee says.

by Kevin Diakiw

A

nxiety-ridden with confusion over managing the simplest of tasks, she repeatedly called 911. The elderly woman with severe mental health challenges had family, but they felt completely hopeless in trying to help. The senior’s calls to police averaged three to four a day over several months. Since 2000, such calls have been the responsibility of Car 67, a specialized unit with a police officer and a nurse on board to deal with mental health issues. A Leader special In a decade, Car 67 handled series examines 12,000 files throughout Surrey. Some of those were for the elderly the shattering lady, who was brought to hospital effects of more than 30 times. mental illness To come up with a better solution, RCMP called in mental health liaison Const. Taylor Quee, whose newly assigned specialty was to stop this repeating cycle for callers like the woman, police and health care professionals. Quee worked with outside agencies, such as Fraser Health and some mental health advocacy groups. Those agencies needed evidence to ascertain the woman’s underlying health conditions. Quee put an information package together, and the elderly woman is now in residential care and doing well.

HARD to HELP

The outcome provided a more humane way of treating the woman and great savings in resources for the RCMP. The mental health liaison is a new position which was pitched by Quee herself. She put together the business case for the RCMP and was slotted into a full-time role in July 2011. It’s been a busy 21 months for Quee. During that time, in addition to helping the elderly lady, she has found alternate care for eight people who were responsible for 1,500 calls to the police over four years. The cost to taxpayers over that time is estimated to be $600,000. Since those people have been treated for their mental health disorders, those policing costs have vanished. When describing her job, Quee sounds more like a social services outreach worker than someone from old-school law enforcement. Most notably, she refers to those she Garry Begg works with as clients. Her job, she says, is to reach out, connect, obtain trust, and link those in need with the resources that will help them get better. From a human wellness standpoint, the work is invaluable, and from a policing perspective, the relief of resources is crucial. And from a taxpayer viewpoint, it offers tremendous savings. Between 30 and 40 per cent of police calls involve a complaint about someone with a mental health issue. And most of those people have no criminal background whatsoever. “Ninety per cent of the people we deal with have no prior police contact,” Quee says, adding they don’t belong in holding cells or jail. Instead, they are now referred to medical professionals.

“Clients are safer, because they’re in treatment,” Quee says. The high volume of calls makes Quee’s job a critical part of the city’s policing model, says Surrey RCMP Insp. Garry Begg. “There was a time when we (police) were the call of last resort,” Begg says. “Now we’re the first.” The fact that Mounties are on the clock 24/7 means a call to 911 usually results in a dispatch of police officers. Because mental health calls can take a significant amount of time, it’s a large drain on resources. Recently, there were 12 police officers waiting with people at Surrey Memorial Hospital. Not all of those were mental health calls, but they certainly added to the hold-up in the emergency room. Still, freedom of choice remains a main hurdle between Quee’s ■ Stigma: The social clients and wellness. barrier to getting People with mental illness are help free to choose whether or not to seek help, or if they want to take the necessary medications once they have been assessed. It means many people fall through the cracks by their own choice, often because of the stigma associated with mental illness. Frequently, the next time the client appears on the radar is through a police call, usually as a public disturbance of some kind. Then Quee goes back to work, once again encouraging people to accept professional help.

Study urges end to garbage incineration Report criticizes carbon emissions from energy plants

by Jeff Nagel A new report urges Metro

Vancouver not to build any new waste-to-energy plants and that its existing garbage incinerator in Burnaby be phased out. Those are among the recommendations in a new study from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives. Its paper titled “Closing the Loop” examines solid waste policy through the prism of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and encouraging green industries. Author Marc Lee takes aim in part at Metro Vancouver’s advancing strategy of building a new waste-to-energy plant to consume 370,000 tonnes of garbage by 2018, ending the region’s use of the Cache Creek regional landfill. The Burnaby incinerator, which burns 280,000 tonnes of waste per year, is a heavy carbon emitter even using disputed official estimates, according to the report, making it a considerably worse source of electricity than burning natural gas. “Incineration has adverse con-

sequences for health and GHG emissions, and requires a steady stream of waste that is inconsistent with zero waste objectives,” the report said. In particular, it notes plastics and paper – key materials that should be diverted for recycling – contribute the most energy when burned. “Programs that succeed in reducing waste could, perversely, be a challenge for incinerators needing to run at high enough temperatures to reduce the formation of toxic compounds.” From a climate change perspective, it said, landfilling plastics and wood products would be preferable to incineration, because it would be a form of carbon storage, even though other strategies to reduce, reuse and recycle would be better. Incineration doesn’t make garbage disappear, it said, noting at least 22 per cent is typically reduced to ash that still must be landfilled, while heavy metals and other toxins can escape. “Even if energy is produced from incineration, it is uneconomic energy as it destroys useful materials that are costly to

replace from virgin sources.” The report also urges provincewide composting and a phaseout of single-use products and packaging. Materials that are toxic or non-recyclable should be either banned or tightly regulated. It also says B.C. needs to develop green manufacturing or reprocessing industries, but admits it will be challenging. Public investments will be needed, it says, to support a shift away from landfills and incinerators in favour of waste reduction, reuse, repair and maintenance, and finally recycling and composting. The study admits its ultimate “closed loop” vision of a lowwaste society where appliances, for example, are repaired and reused for far longer than today is at odds with an open economy that freely allows imports and exports, as well as consumers’ penchant for quickly discarding tech gadgets in favour of new models. Nineteen firms are in the running to build a new wasteto-energy plant for Metro Vancouver.

While a damning audit of B.C.’s Pacific Carbon Trust focused on carbon offset spending in far-flung corners of the province, public money from school and hospital budgets also fed projects across the Lower Mainland. And a leading critic of the made-in-B.C. carbon offset strategy says the legitimacy of the local projects is just as questionable as the Darkwoods and Encana offsets B.C.’s Auditor General decided were not credible. Bob Simpson, the independent MLA for Cariboo-North, says in most cases the recipients either had already decided to spend on upgrades to reduce greenhouse gas emissions before carbon offsets were offered, or likely would have done so in any event. Greenhouses in the Fraser Valley were among the recipients – Quiks Farm in Chilliwack, Randhawa Farms in Abbotsford, Sun Select Farms in Delta, and Langley’s Katatheon Farms and Glenwood Valley Farms all got money to subsidize energy efficiency upgrades or to convert from natural gas to wood waste fuel. “The greenhouses were responding to spikes in natural gas pricing,” Simpson said. The entire sector should have been excluded, he argues, because farmers in other jurisdictions were doing the same thing without carbon offset

subsidies. Wood fuel was cheaper than natural gas. Wood is offset-eligible because it’s counted as a lower-carbon fuel source – it’s assumed forests regrow and reabsorb carbon, unlike fossil fuels that add incremental new carbon to the atmosphere when burned. But Simpson contends landfilling wood waste instead of burning it would sequester the carbon in the ground – a more effective choice if greenhouse gases are the overriding concern. “There are a whole bunch of logic traps,” he said. Kruger Products tissue mill in New Westminster also got carbon offset money to retrofit to burn wood waste fuel instead of natural gas, even though it also received a federal green transformation grant for the same purpose and therefore doubledipped, according to Simpson. Lafarge’s Richmond cement plant, one of the region’s biggest carbon emitters, pledged to burn less coal and more wood wastederived fuel with the help of an offset-funded retrofit. “Fuel-switching in the cement sector is a business-as-usual practice,” Simpson said. “They’re all scrambling to try to get their energy costs down. It calls into question whether it’s a legitimate offset project.” He said nobody appears to be monitoring Lafarge to ensure the cement plant actually burns the agreed amount of wood.

The Pacific Carbon Trust viewed its stable of projects in terms of verifiable greenhouse gas emission reductions that could be sold to government agencies or other buyers that needed to buy offsets. But while the trust paid businesses to burn wood waste instead of natural gas in the name of fighting climate change, its calculations didn’t consider whether local air pollution might suffer as a result, which concerned air quality advocates. “Off of wood waste you get ash,” Simpson noted. “You don’t get high particulate content off of natural gas. You’re trying to substitute one questionable practice for another.” Other recipients included B.C. Transit, which bought hydrogen fuel cell buses for Whistler, and TransLink, which bought electric trolleys and hybrid buses. In both cases, the Pacific Carbon Trust embraced them as offsets long after the transit agencies decided to spend the money. Canadian Taxpayers Federation B.C. director Jordan Bateman said he doesn’t really care whether the offsets are credible or not, the entire logic of the push to carbon-neutral government is flawed. “You’re trying to buy absolution with tax dollars,” Bateman said. “How do you blame a hospital for polluting? All they’re doing is heating a facility and sterilizing tools to save lives.”

Freeze on carbon tax B.C. Liberals plan on rates to stay put for five years by Tom Fletcher Premier Christy Clark and Environment Minister

Terry Lake are expected to announce this week that a B.C. Liberal government will freeze B.C.’s carbon tax on fossil fuels at current rates for five years. Government sources said the freeze is to allow other jurisdictions to catch up to B.C., which taxes carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels at $30 a tonne. Former finance minister Carole Taylor introduced the carbon tax in 2008, covering transportation and heating fuel for homes and businesses. The rate rose over four years and was frozen for this year at seven cents per litre of gasoline, with comparable taxes on diesel, coal, natural gas and other fuels. The carbon tax is budgeted to raise $1.2 billion in the fiscal year that began April 1, with all revenues required to be returned through personal and

Carbon tax: Opposition parties have their own ideas business income tax reductions. B.C.’s carbon tax was a political battleground before the 2009 election, with former NDP leader Carole James campaigning for it to be scrapped. At the 2008 municipal convention in Penticton, when former premier Gordon Campbell announced grants to offset carbon tax costs for towns and cities, James claimed the

grants were to placate local politicians who were in open revolt against the tax. After the 2009 election, the NDP changed its position to support the carbon tax. Leader Adrian Dix has said revenues should go towards transit expansion or energy-saving upgrades in municipal buildings and operations. B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins promises to eliminate

Cummins emphasizes the disproportionate impact the tax has on colder and more remote parts of B.C., but has not yet specified if offsetting income tax cuts would be reversed to make up the revenue to the province. B.C. Green party leader Jane Sterk has restated her 2009 policy of raising the carbon tax from the current $30 per tonne to $50 a tonne immediately. That

would bring the tax to more than 10 cents per litre of gasoline. The Greens would also extend the tax to industrial process emissions such as cement kilns, and cancel the offsetting income tax reductions. The revenues would instead be used to fund transit and possibly energy retrofits for homes and other buildings. The recent focus has been on another climate program to make the provincial government and its agencies buy carbon offsets through the Pacific Carbon Trust. Facing criticism about transferring millions of dollars from school and hospital budgets to fund emission reduction projects in private industry, Environment Minister Terry Lake announced in April 2012 that $5 million a year would be set aside from carbon offset payments to fund school district energy efficiency projects.

Taylor Strukoff, 6, (left) scrambles with others at the north Delta Lions club’s Easter Egg hunt at Sunbury Park on Sunday. at right, families stream into a theatre at the community of hope’s Easter egg hunt at the Strawberry hill cinemas.

On March 28, the Canadian Cancer Society’s Sirf Dus

initiative partnered with the BC Cancer Agency’s Screening Mammography Program to provide free mobile mammography services to 51 South Asian women. Screening took place at the Indo Canadian Seniors Centre, near Guru Nanak Sikh Temple. Forty-one per cent of the women had never been screened. Sirf Dus promotes mammography in to the South Asian community, which has lower mammography screening rates compared to the general B.C. population. Sirf Dus translates to both “Only Ten” and “Just Tell” in Punjabi. The initiative asks South Asian women to: • Take 10 minutes to talk about the importance of the mammography exam and early detection; • Take 10 minutes to go for mammography screening; and • Tell 10 friends about the importance of mammography screening. The day marked the society’s 75th anniversary. During the society’s early years in the 1940s, the cancer survival rate was about 25 per cent. Today, the survival rate for breast cancer specifically is 88 per cent, which is why regular screening and early detection are so important. The society recommends that women who are 50–69 years of age should have screening mammography every two years. Women between the ages of 40 and 49 should discuss their risk of breast cancer, along with the benefits and risks of mammography, with their doctor. Women 70 years of age or older should talk to their doctor about a screening program that would be appropriate for them.

Temporary Road Closure

Artist’s passion is for the birds

Watercolourist Lex Hedley at Surrey Art Gallery tonight Black Press Birds are central to Lex Alfred Hedley’s life.

They offer an easily accessible link to nature that is contemplative and restorative. On Thursday (April 4) at 7:30 p.m. as part of the Thursday Artist Talk speaker series at the Surrey Art Gallery, this renowned Vancouver-based watercolour artist and new author will share his artworks and an excerpt from his first book. With a slide show and several original works, Hedley – who works in a contemporary realist style – will show why he considers watercolour to be unsurpassed for rendering the sheen and softness of bird plumage. Hedley’s latest venture – telling the story of an artist’s year-long journey through the wilds of the Pacific Northwest – will be expressed through a short video and a reading from the manuscript of his book.

Highway 99 at 16 Avenue Interchange Project The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure and the City of Surrey hereby notify the public of a planned closure of 16 Avenue at Highway 99 for the construction of the new interchange. 16 Avenue will be closed where it crosses over Highway 99. While 16 Avenue is closed the exisitng two lane underpass will be demolished and a new six lane structure will be built. Truck traffic will be diverted to 8 Avenue and all other traffic can use either 24 Avenue or 8 Avenue. This closure is scheduled to begin April 1, 2013 and continue until August 31, 2013 and allows the new structure to be built much more quickly, minimizes impacts to the surrounding community, provides a safer environment for both drivers and project workers and reduces overall project costs. For more information, please contact Project Manager Jay Porter at 604 660-8211 or by e-mail at Jay.Porter@gov.bc.ca. or visit the project web site at www.th.gov.bc.ca/highwayprojects/hwy99_at_16_Ave/

Admission is to the talk is free.  Hedley misspent his youngest days on his bike in the New Zealand countryside looking for birds and their nests. His passion for birds emerged with the discovery of an ability to sketch and paint them. He has also lived in Europe and now in North America, continuing to develop his abilities with brush and paint. With more than 20 years of experience exploring North American birds and landscapes, Hedley has developed a more complete understanding of the natural world in our lives. There will be time for questions and conversation during and following the talk. The event concludes by 9 p.m. Refreshments are provided. This event is presented by the Surrey Art Gallery Association in partnership with the Surrey Art Gallery, and with support from the Arts Council of Surrey.
