Colourful crowds Crowds pack the streets near 128 Street and 84 Avenue during Saturday’s annual Vaisakhi parade in Surrey, where police say attendance matched the record 200,000-person turnout from last year. Police say it was a peaceful crowd, adding there were no arrests. There were 39 reports of missing children, who were quickly returned to their caregivers. Traffic was heavy, but no one was hurt in any accidents. BOAZ JOSEPH / THE LEADER
‘Mr. Surrey’ named 2013 Good Citizen Cloverdale’s Bill Reid honoured by mayor and council for his extensive contributions to the community
by Jennifer Lang
HIS NAME is Bill Reid, but to many, he’s known as “Mr. Surrey”
and the unofficial mayor of Cloverdale, where at 78, he remains at the centre of business and community life. And Wednesday night he was singled out for a fitting tribute from the city he’s served for five decades. Reid has been named Good Citizen of the Year by Mayor Dianne Watts and Surrey council. The honour was announced at the city’s annual volunteer services celebration. Reid, who was too ill to attend the event, was recognized for his contributions as a politician, service club member and as business community leader. “Bill Reid has been tirelessly serving our community for over five decades,” Watts said. “He has demonstrated an exceptional
commitment to our city and has spent most of his life working to enhance our business environment.” The Good Citizen recipient is chosen by council and is presented to a Surrey resident who has performed outstanding service for the community. Reid, executive director of the Cloverdale District Chamber of Commerce, is a tireless promoter and booster who’s fond of describing Cloverdale as the “centre of the universe.” Well-known for his list of contacts in governBill Reid ment, business and the community, Reid remains an active force, recently lobbying Surrey council on behalf of the Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce over a controversial casino proposal for South Surrey. Reid’s other recent chamber initiatives include an ongoing anti-
graffiti campaign in Clayton Heights. He’s served as president of the White Rock/Surrey Chamber of Commerce, was vice-president of the Cloverdale Business Improvement Association, and is a past governor for B.C. Kinsmen Clubs. He sits on the Cloverdale Rodeo and Exhibition Association board of directors, the Surrey Heritage Society, and the Fraser Valley Heritage Railway Society. Reid and his wife Marion moved to Surrey in 1960. He owned a car dealership and served eight years on Delta council. Reid represented Surrey as a Social Credit MLA from 1983 to 1986, and Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale from 1986 to 1991. He was B.C.’s tourism minister during Expo ’86.

It will prohibit any more businesses such as pornography stores, chequecashing centres, dating and escort services, massage parlours, pawn shops and tattoo parlours. Current stores can stay, but no more stores of that type will be issued business licences.

Control ‘misuse’ of FSA marks, or drop the tests: Trustee Surrey’s Laurie Larsen says school rankings based on standardized exams has to stop by Sheila Reynolds a Surrey school trustee wants the province
Surrey trustee laurie larsen.
to either stop the “misuse” of Foundation Skills Assessment (FSA) results, or eliminate the controversial tests altogether and replace them with something else. Trustee Laurie Larsen made the suggestion to her fellow board of education members at a public board meeting Thursday (April 18). The FSAs are given to B.C. Grade 4 and 7 students annually and measure reading comprehension, writing and numeracy skills. The tests are administered in January and February, with individual results available to parents and teachers by late March. Overall district and school results are posted online. The problem, said Larsen, is that organizations such as the Fraser Institute, an independent public policy research group, take the test results and rank schools provincewide based on the scores.
“They rank them and from there, parents and other people draw conclusions that shouldn’t be drawn,” argued Larsen. “The rankings are so misleading. Sometimes parents reject schools because of where they rank, when in fact that school may be the perfect school for them.” The Ministry of Education’s own website, she noted, contains a warning not to attempt such comparisons. “Attempting to rank schools or districts based on FSA results,” reads the web page, “invites misleading comparisons that ignore the particular circumstances that affect achievement in each school.” The tests, said Larsen, not only don’t consider the cultural and economic diversity of a school, but also don’t take into account the province’s push toward 21st century learning or critical thinking. “It’s an oxymoron that the government’s pushing these tests, and yet that’s not the type of
learning that they’re trying to get schools to do.” She suggested other randomized testing is much more effective and provides the same “snapshot” of achievement the government is seeking. Plus, Larsen said, teachers are experts at assessment. “That’s their job,” she said. “They produce far better reports and remarks on those children.” The FSAs have proven controversial since their inception more than a decade ago. Teachers have argued they consume precious instruction time and provide little valuable information. The Fraser Institute maintains the rankings – especially now that there’s several years of data to compare – provide more than a snapshot and show some schools and teachers are simply doing a better job than others, despite of advantages and disadvantages. Larsen wants the board to contact the education ministry to express concern about use of FSA data. The matter will be discussed further at the May 9 board meeting.

Don’t snooze this one out
he 2013 provincial election will be one of the most important in recent memory. At a time when the economy appears to be in slow motion, yet demands on the public purse are increasing, voters need to pay attention. Of course, we say this for every election – to no avail. Last time around, in the 2009 provincial election, only about 50 per cent of voters bothered to cast a vote. Who is to blame? It’s hard to say. Is it negative advertising that turns people off ? BC NDP leader Adrian Dix says so and has promised a more positive campaign. But will that end indifference or will people turn away in boredom? Is it helplessness and apathy that keep people away from the polls? Many people simply don’t connect with government. B.C. Liberal leader Christy Clark has tried to be a populist premier, appealing to the hockey mom vote, but has failed to attract women’s support. Why? Perhaps B.C. voters simply distrust anything politicians say. Clearly there is a disconnect and the media may have contributed to this malaise by blowing every little incident out of proportion. As in the story of the boy who cried wolf, many voters simply tune out after a while, yet, sadly, when there is a real issue, such as lack of funding for transit, many eligible voters simply don’t see the connection between their vote and government policy. Instead, they leave the field to special interest groups – business, unions, lobbyists – to hijack the results. The truth is that politicians will only be accountable if we hold them accountable. We have a right to toss any of them out if they don’t do what they promised so voters need to pay attention to what politicians say and they need to find out who they are. The Leader is providing riding-by-riding election coverage, and over the next few weeks, will be covering political issues as they arise. In other words, we’re doing our best to keep you informed. The rest is up to you. – Black Press
he B.C. Liberal party deserves credit for releasing its policy book in full on the eve of the formal election campaign. That’s about the only positive thing to be said about it. For those who take the time to read party leader Christy Clark’s 40-page booklet, there are a few nuggets of news. For instance, a re-elected B.C. Liberal government would continue its justice reform agenda by moving traffic ticket disputes out of courtrooms, as they did with impaired driving cases. Most of it consists of glowing descriptions of the government’s 12-year record, and attacks on the NDP of the kind that are not normally seen in a platform. This is consistent with Clark’s style since she was anointed party leader two years ago. The main focus, as revealed in February’s throne speech, is a plan to pay off B.C.’s growing debt and perhaps even get rid of the provincial sales tax with an Alberta-style “prosperity fund” from liquefied natural gas exports.
The Surrey/North Delta Leader is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry. The council considers complaints from the public about the conduct of member newspapers. Directors oversee the mediation of complaints, with input from both the newspaper and the complaint holder. If talking with the editor or publisher does not resolve your complaint about coverage or story treatment, you may contact the B.C. Press Council. Your written concern, with documentation, should be sent to B.C. Press Council, 201 Selby St., Nanaimo, B.C. V9R 2R2.

The B.C. Liberals will cut small business taxes by a point, some time in the next five years. They will also increase income tax on large businesses and personal income of more than $150,000, but that’s not mentioned in their platform, since it goes against 12 years of their policy as a government. • A clarification of last week’s column on the B.C. Conservative platform. Leader John Cummins informs me his plan to phase out the carbon tax does not include reversing the personal and business income tax rate reductions that were legislated as the fuel tax reached its current level. The platform asserts that total provincial revenues will continue to rise in the next four years, despite the uncompensated loss of $1 billion from the carbon tax.

Nine years for child molester not enough Re: “teaRs, cheers as Surrey child
molester jailed 9 years,” The Leader, April 18. James Cardno’s actions have affected many people, not just the victims. He took the boys’ lives away. They will never have the innocent lives
they were leading. He took my son away from the family. Many of the victims have become addicted to drugs, closed themselves in, are socially inept and suffer from depression. The nine years is a long time for Mr. Cardno, but not long enough
for his victims and families. We will never forget. Name withheld (Editor’s note: By court order, nothing may be published that could identify any of James Cardno’s victims).
Lifelong values learned at the track
Re: applIcatIon to return auto rac-
ing to Langley Speedway. I started going to Langley Speedway as a nine-year-old in 1967, attending until the track closed in 1984 when I was 26. Over the years my stepfather and five uncles drove regularly at the speedway. My family and I spent a considerable amount of time at the track; I take pride in telling people, “I grew up at Langley Speedway.” I am who I am today because of the environment I was raised in. I am thankful for that opportunity. Such an environment does not exist today anywhere near what it was; that is unfortunate. I believe the foundation of the racing life style has four pillars of equal value: respect, safety, competition and fun. If I was to add a fifth, it would be generosity. I believe I am living a successful life because, for the most part, I like to keep things in line with these values. I know many other successful people that have shared a similar experience. They feel the same way and are looking forward to the possibility of having a track again to enjoy and share all the benefits such a facility would bring. A legacy of the speedway that was closed in 1984 is the strong reputation Langley still has for being extremely friendly to car enthusiasts, and the economic benefits of that well-deserved reputation. Many local businesses that employ a large number of people exist today because Langley Speed-

Langley is a diverse community that is the self-proclaimed “Horse Capital of Canada” but could just as easily proclaim themselves the “Car Enthusiast’s Capital of Canada.” I remember how threatened the racing community was when the track was sold for the purpose of becoming a park. Even though assurances were given, complete with long-term lease and renewal options, the proverbial “stuff” hit the
fan and ultimately, for a variety of debatable reasons the track closed. I have seen some of the responses to the application for an investigation into the feasibility of returning racing to the facility and I understand the fear. I remember how I felt as a kid when I thought I was going to lose my racing. I truly believe all issues can be worked through. The racing community’s contributions to the park will actually enhance the experience in a variety of ways for
the equestrian people and other park users. All the motorsports community is asking for is less than two per cent of the park for less than four per cent of the year. In exchange they will restore the facility to racing and spectator safety standards at no cost to the tax payer and pay a negotiated percentage of sales to Metro Vancouver. Dan Olson, Maple Ridge
Line between civilians, soldiers blurred
In the wake of the Boston bomb-
ings, we have sadly been reminded of the dangers that today’s world carries. Any random or targeted act of violence is unfortunate, and especially one where children are involved. One is left to ponder why such violence continues to escalate. I believe the source of this previously unheard of violence lies within the mental state of people and their willingness to harm others without any regard or consequence. It is necessary to note that random or targeted bombings were not common news, even 30 years ago. Whether we are talking about North America or other parts of the globe, historically speaking this type of horrific and indiscriminate manner
of killing is a fairly new trend in domestic/global situations. In the past, countries would declare war and their soldiers would be the main source of violence excluding civilians, but war has been experiencing a metamorphosis where civilians and soldiers are becoming more difficult to distinguish. Political boundaries are no longer the parameters of rules which people must follow. Having said this, we have to raise the question of why, with an increase of worldwide security, we have more violence? Having additional security is definitely more of a deterrent for those individuals who are easily intimidated by police presence, but clearly this plan has not been effective enough.
A more rational approach would require a deeper understanding of political ideologies and respect for all humans, regardless of race and religion. It goes without saying that a retaliation disposition has failed, and in fact exacerbated the situation to a point where people are paranoid and choosing to make irrational decisions. Technology has certainly progressed, however, people are not absorbing this technology so as to make a greater effort at continuing peace. Finally, whether in Boston, Baghdad, or London, these senseless acts of violence will unfortunately persist until governments educate their citizens in a more inclusive and positive manner.
In a world where we are constantly tracked and easily exposed, how do certain individuals “fool” the system and bring such tragedy so close to home? Regardless of who is planting these bombs, there must come a time where dialogue and self -reflection are used as provisions to extinguish this burning fire that has been fuelled by human lives in the name of religious or political freedom. Clearly, both sides of this battle acknowledge the compulsion to engage in physical combat is unquestionably necessary, most likely because they have made immense misinterpretations and now feel backing down will be a symbolic loss. Lucky Virk
Drive carefully, Mr. Dix
B.c.’s goveRnment is a sprawling
service-based business with an enormous budget and a huge number of employees. Adrian Dix lacks business-based managerial skills and could inadvertently make some terrible mistakes. Hopefully Mr. Dix knows his own limitations and will not allow the NDP’s socialistic exuberance to contort into know-it-all stupidity. As someone once commented, the government cannot give anything to anybody that it doesn’t first take from somebody else. If Adrian Dix does become the premier and then drives our province even further into the ditch of fiscal mismanagement, middle-ofthe-road British Columbians will not allow a leader of the NDP to sit in the driver’s seat of this province for a long, long time. In spite of misgivings about Adrian “Left Wheeler” Dix, I would rather have him at the wheel for the next four years than Christy “Fender Bender” Clark. Lloyd Atkins, Vernon
Money not well spent
has anyone noticed the pro-
liferation of advertising for the big hospital lotteries? Day after day there are full-page and halfpage newspaper advertisements, sometimes both, urging us in huge letters to get our tickets as there are five, four, three days left – and this is the final weekend. How much does this advertising cost? What about the brochures and billboards, the pamphlets and mailouts, the Internet messages – not to mention the office overheads and the salaries for the staff? Would any of the proceeds of these lotteries – if indeed there is a reasonable sum left after all expenses are taken into account – be needed, if our government kept our hospitals up-to-date, fully equipped and wellstaffed? I think not. Sheila Gair

Bridge traffic down 5% after tolls Rapid Bus use accounts for some, but not all, of decrease in vehicles on Port Mann
by Jeff Nagel Use of the new Port Mann Bridge is down
around five per cent since tolls took effect in December. Transportation ministry officials say 200,000 fewer vehicles crossed the toll bridge in February – 2.7 million compared to 2.9 million in February of 2012 before the crossing was tolled. About 100,000 fewer vehicles crossed in January, compared to three million a year before. Transportation Investment Corp. spokesman Greg Johnson said bridge traffic is continuing to fluctuate and it will take time before it stabilizes. “We are seeing similar volumes to this time
last year,” he said. Asked if the drop in Port Mann traffic equates to a similar increase in traffic at non-tolled bridges, Johnson said he could not speculate on that. Some of the drop in vehicle traffic may be due to drivers parking their cars and taking the new #555 express bus from north Langley over the Port Mann to New Westminster. More than 38,000 passengers rode the rapid bus in March, TransLink spokesman Derek Zabel said. The service runs ever 15 minutes at peak times and the 47-seater highway coaches typically carry 35 to 40 passengers over the bridge during the rush. “It’s meeting expectations and it has room to grow,” Zabel said.
Travel time for commuters has been cut thanks to the new span. The province also released GPS measurements of the time taken to travel Highway 1 before and after the new bridge opened.

Drivers going from Surrey to Coquitlam have cut their travel time by nearly 60 per cent, the transportation ministry said. It takes 11 minutes now to travel from 176 Street in Surrey to Brunette Avenue at Lougheed via the new bridge, compared to 35 minutes before it was built. The gains aren’t yet as dramatic for motorists travelling further into Burnaby and Vancouver on Highway 1, where freeway construction continues throughout this year. Morning commuters now take 40 minutes to get to Boundary Road at Grandview from 200 Street in Langley, compared to 68 minutes prior to the new bridge. That time is projected to drop again to 23 minutes when the rest of the work on the highway is finished.

Surrey woman hurt in hit-andrun Black Press LangLey RCMP are ask-
ing for the public’s help to find a hit-and-run driver, following a collision on Thursday night that seriously injured a 19-year-old Surrey woman. The victim was struck at around 10:40 p.m. on April 18, as she walked east along the south side of 72 Avenue, near 197 Street. The vehicle left the scene, but another pedestrian heard the injured woman’s cries and called for help. B.C. Ambulance crews responded and took the woman to hospital with serious injuries to both her head and lower body. Langley RCMP’s traffic section is asking the driver of the vehicle to come forward.

Premier hints at toll cut for Port Mann Bridge Christy Clark also insists voters could veto transit funding by Jeff Nagel Premier Christy Clark
is dangling the possibility of an early reduction in tolls on the Port Mann Bridge while contradicting her transportation minister’s claim a referendum on TransLink funding would raise taxes for transit one way or another. In an interview with The Leader Friday, Clark said a planned Prosperity Fund, raised from expected liquefied natural gas royalties, can be used to pay down not just the provincial debt, but also the Port Mann/ Highway 1 project debt, allowing an early cut in tolls. “As we can afford to, we want to reduce those tolls,” Clark said. “Once we’ve paid off the debt on the Port Mann Bridge, those tolls can go down pretty substantially.” Asked how that squares with past statements that funds benefitting Metro Vancouverites must be raised within the region, Clark said provincial debt would have “first call” on the fund, but it can also be used against BC Ferries, BC Hydro and Port Mann debt. Clark also refused to endorse a statement by Transportation Minister Mary Polak that a regional referendum would force Metro voters to choose from revenue options for TransLink, not let them veto them all. “If voters don’t want it, we’re not going to impose it on them,” Clark insisted. Polak indicated Thursday there would not be a none-of-the-above option in the referendum – the outcome would have to result in new revenue for TransLink and it was just a matter of voters choosing from a menu of tools. “We don’t know what the referendum question will look like yet,” Clark said, adding the province will work with TransLink to design it. “I’m sure one of the options is going to be a status quo option. And the status quo option is the same thing as not approving any new funding.” She said she hopes proposals to finance

Premier Christy Clark would not endorse a statement by her transportation minister mary Polak that a regional referendum would force metro voters to choose from revenue options for transLink, not let them veto them all. TransLink will arise that are affordable and win public support because improved transit is needed in Metro Vancouver. Questioned about frustration in Surrey about bearing the brunt of bridge tolls, the premier said the new Port Mann Bridge also benefits Surrey more than other areas, citing reduced commute times.
“We found a way to get it done,” she said. “For people in Surrey, that’s the most important part – that it got done.” On the Liberals’ promise to replace the Massey Tunnel, Clark wouldn’t say if the new bridge or tunnel will be tolled. “I don’t know what it will look like at the end,” she said. “But the
provincial tolling policy will apply.” That policy is the one that allows tolls only on new infrastructure and only when there’s a free reasonable alternative. Currently the Pattullo Bridge is the free alternative to the Port Mann, but critics say the concept would become ridiculous if either a rebuilt Pattullo or Deas crossing is tolled as well. Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts has repeatedly called for “fair tolling” reforms and all Metro Vancouver mayors want a hard look at road pricing. The provincial policy bars such changes and the premier said she has no plans to alter it. “This whole idea… that we should be putting a toll on just about every road, just about every bridge, whether it’s new, whether it’s old – I just don’t agree with that,” Clark said. “I don’t agree that people should be paying tolls on infrastructure that was built 30, 40 years ago.”

Ridings in focus: SURREY-WHALLEY by Rick Kupchuk The B.C. NDP’s Bruce Ralston handily
defeated B.C. Liberal candidate Radhia Banalia in 2009 to win a second term as MLA for Surrey-Whalley, collecting 66.5 per cent of the vote. A Liberal victory in 2001 is the only success the party has had in Surrey-Whalley in the last five elections, and came in a year when the NDP was crushed province-wide, winning only two seats. Ralston won easily in 2005, taking 55 per cent of the vote compared to just 31 per cent for the Liberals. That margin grew to more than 6,000 votes four years ago. The Liberal party, which received 26 per cent of the vote in the last election, will send Radio Punjab talk show host Kuljeet Kaur to battle Ralston in Whalley. Pradeep Kumar, a welder who immigrated to Canada in 1985, was to represent the B.C. Green party, but a party spokesperson told The Leader last week Kumar has resigned due to “unforeseen circumstances.” The Greens have until April 26 to register a new candidate with Elections B.C. Sunny Chohan, a manager in the telecommunications industry, is representing the B.C. Conservatives. And Jag Bhandari, leader of the new B.C.
Vision party, is also running in SurrreyWhalley. According to an Bhandari’s online blog, the main objective of B.C. Vision “is to enhance the lives of all British Columbians.” Surrey-Whalley is a riding where the percentage of homeowners spending more than 30 per cent of their income on shelter is the sixth-highest in the province. Surrey-Whalley ranks among the electoral districts where the percentages of self-employed are among the lowest in the province. Visible minorities account for 45 per cent of the population, with roughly 21 per cent of immigrants coming from India, and another 14 from the Philippines. Close to 30 per cent of the population in SurreyWhalley can speak a language other than English. Punjabi is the language at 23 per cent, followed by Hindi (17 per cent), Tagalog (10 per cent) and all Chinese languages (eight per cent).
Surrey-Whalley fast facts: • 2011 population: 60,615 • 2006 population: 51,405 • Increase: 17.9 % • Median age: 37.4 • Non-English mother tongue: 47% • Average income: $54,409
If you live within these boundaries, Surrey-Whalley is your riding.
Surrey-Whalley: Candidates on the record The Leader asked local candidates to respond to the following questions:
1. What is your name, age, education and neighbourhood of residence? 2. Why should people vote for you? 3. What are the most significant issues facing your riding and what would you do about them? 4. What are the most significant issues facing B.C. and what would you do about them?
BRUCe RALSTON (Incumbent)
Name, education, and residence: Bruce Ralston was educated at Universities of British Columbia and of Cambridge in England. He ran his own law business in Surrey for many years. He served two terms as a Surrey city councillor and nearly 12 years as a Vancity board director including several years as chair of the board. I have lived in the riding since 1990.
Name, education, and residence: Kuljeet Kaur, 56, masters degree, arts, Guildford. 2. Why should people vote for you? I have been an advocate for women’s empowerment through my radio program for nearly 20 years and have been involved in my community, raising
2. Why should people vote for you? Elected first as an MLA in 2005 and re-elected in 2009 I bring the right mix of experience, knowledge and commitment to make a difference for the citizens of Surrey Whalley. My children have attended local public schools and participated in a variety of community sports. I believe I know Surrey-Whalley and its citizens well.
3. What are the most significant issues facing your riding and what would you do about them? Those living in Surrey Whalley have many of the same concerns as others in British Columbia: skills training and jobs, better education for our children, reducing child poverty, and addressing inequality. The NDP platform will address these issues and set a course for change one practical step at a time. I will work to build
the Surrey City Centre in my riding and bring public investment to help it grow. Public transit to connect Surrey better to the region is another priority.
funds for cancer, volunteering for the Fraser Health Authority and assisting new immigrants to become acclimated to their new Canadian life. I feel I can contribute to making British Columbia an even better place to live, work and play.
Surrey-Whalley is changing rapidly with new development. We need to continue to provide family-supporting jobs so that we can get the full benefit of a growing economy and support better social services to people in our community who need them. With support of the growth of new housing development, we will be able to provide more and better low-income housing
for young families and seniors.

4. What are the most significant issues facing B.C. and what would you do about them? British Columbia needs a change for the better. Adrian Dix and the B.C. NDP will offer that program on practical step at a time. British Columbia’s

One of a series comparing party platforms on an issue-byissue basis. by Tom Fletcher
Parties in the May 14 B.C. election have highlighted their commitments to improve postsecondary skills training. The province faces a wave of baby boomer retirements, shortages in trades and industrial jobs, an increase in temporary foreign workers, and under-employment of some university graduates. Trades and apprenticeship Vertical x 10”) training is(7.375” a major point of
dispute. The B.C. Liberal-created Industry Trade Authority has increased apprentices from 16,000 in 2001 to 34,000, but the NDP counters that percentage completion rates have declined. Independent Contractors and Businesses Association president Phil Hochstein argues that with many more
young people in the apprenticeship system, the number of graduates is at a record level.
Platform highlights: • The B.C. NDP’s biggest commitment is $100 million for a post-secondary student grant program, to be funded by a capital tax on large financial institutions.

NDP leader Adrian Dix also promises $40 million new investment for skills training, to “increase apprenticeship training spaces, shorten completion times and improve completion rates.” The NDP notes that while the B.C. Liberal government touts its jobs plan in ads, its February budget projects a $42 million cut to the advanced education ministry over three years. • The B.C. Liberals highlight a $75-million commitment for upgrading training facilities and equipment, on top of the $500-million annual skills training budget. The B.C. Liberals emphasize plans to expand vocational training in high schools, and encourage partnerships between high schools and employers. Their platform also promises to develop “relevant training programs” for B.C. residents to work in the LNG (liquefied natural gas) industry. • The B.C. Conservatives promise to “increase training and apprenticeships in the trades and technical sector,” but don’t specify how. They also promise to increase on-line learning capabilities in colleges and technical institutes, and give qualified B.C. students priority for admission to the province’s post-secondary institutions.
• The B.C. Green party promises to eliminate interest on student debt over five years, “immediately”
cut tuition by 20 per cent, create a grant program for low-income students, increase core funding
for colleges and universities by $200 million, and provide training for laid-off workers.

There’s more than one route to recycle your containers
14 Surrey/North Delta Leader Tuesday, April 23, 2013
Thanks to BC residents, about 80% of beverage containers sold in the province are recovered and recycled into something new. In 2012, that was close to one billion containers kept out of landfills. By Sandy Sigmund Vice President, Development & CMO Encorp Pacific (Canada)
Encorp Pacic (Canada) is one of North America’s leading not-for-prot product stewardship corporations. With a mandate to develop and manage a consumer-friendly, cost-effective system to recover end-of-life products and packaging for recycling, Encorp’s recycling network is extensive, and stretches across the province. Probably best known for the Return-ItTM System, Encorp’s recycling network includes over 170 Return-ItTM Depots in BC. Each depot is independently owned, often family-operated, and provides business and employment opportunities for communities across the province. As the cornerstones of the Return-ItTM System, these depots are known by 85% of BC residents, and are the most common way that a beverage container is returned for recycling into the system. Conveniently, many ReturnItTM Depots also accept a variety of other stewardship products, including electronics, small appliances, paint and more. More information about what’s accepted where can be found at return-it.ca/locations. To ensure customers get the best possible recycling experience, Encorp has taken steps to modernize depots by creating 3 & 5 Star Depot Programs. Depots certied in the program must meet specic standards for service, cleanliness, design and convenience. Today’s depots are clean, bright and open, with large sorting tables. Nearly every customer (94%) who’s recently visited a depot is satised with the experience. While beverage containers can still be returned to any retailer in BC, their returns
Panorama Village Return-It, 5-Star location, Surrey, BC
There are over 170 Return-It™ Depots in BC. Find them at return-it.ca/locations only represent 7% of the total collected. Return-ItTM Depots collect the vast majority of containers, and are part of a comprehensive recycling network. For hotels, ofce buildings, restaurants, other businesses and multi-family buildings, many Return-ItTM Depots and specialized mobile collectors offer a pick-up program, primarily provided within the Vancouver area. Independent contractors will pick-up used containers and take them to Return-ItTM collection facilities. If you live in a townhouse, condominium or apartment, look for the Encorp or Return-ItTM branded collection bins installed in your garbage and recycling area. If you live in a residence where municipal pickup is available, you can leave containers for curbside pickup – be aware, though, that the type of containers accepted will vary
Containers get a second life Used aluminum cans are crushed and baled. The bales are sold and the aluminum is melted down and reformed into new aluminum cans. It takes 95% less energy to manufacture a recycled can than it does to make a new one. Drink boxes and cartons are mashed into a paper pulp that is used to make cardboard boxes and tissue paper. Every tonne of recycled paper pulp saves approximately 17 trees. Plastic bottles are washed, shredded and formed into pellets. From there, the material is sold to companies who turn those pellets into new plastic containers. Used glass bottles are crushed into a ne material called cullet. Cullet is used in the manufacturing of a variety of things such as new bottles, sandblasting material and berglass insulation.
based on your municipality. It’s always best to check with your local municipality to conrm what’s acceptable and what isn’t. For recycling ‘on the go’, you may have noticed that Encorp has installed 60 new beverage container recycling bins in the City of Vancouver. These bins are nonlocking and designed to be self-serviced by residents or people wanting to receive the deposit refund attached to each container.
a high degree of transparency to manage these various recycling programs. With BC’s growing recycling networks, recycling couldn’t be easier. Look for a Return-ItTM Depot or recycling bin near you, and keep your recyclable products in the system and out of the landll.
Around 176 bear-proof recycling bins can also be found in approximately 14 BC parks. The parks receive the deposit refunds and most proceeds are given to their chosen charities. To date, more than $75,000 in deposit refunds have been provided to BC Parks. Also, Encorp has been running a School Recycling Program since 2000. BC elementary and high schools can register and compete against one another to collect the most recyclable containers. Not only do schools get to keep the deposit refunds, but cash prizes are awarded to the schools that collect the most containers per student. To date, schools have recycled almost 37 million containers and received over $2.2 million in deposit refunds. Recent research shows that 92% of BC residents know of a place to return beverage containers to receive their deposit refund.

Eagles’ overtime win clinches Fred Page Cup Surrey defeats Penticton Vees 4-2 in BCHL championship series
by Nick Greenizan For the fourth time in
franchise history – and the first time since 2005 – the Surrey Eagles are kings of the BC Hockey League. The Eagles won the Fred Page Cup Sunday night at Penticton’s South Okanagan Events Centre, when Adam Tambellini’s one-timer in double-overtime beat Vees’ goalie Chad Katunar, who up until that point of extra time had been nearly unbeatable. The goal gave Surrey a 3-2 victory, and a 4-2 series win, dethroning the Vees, who were the defending league champions. “It feels great,” said Surrey head coach Matt Erhart, who won a Fred Page Cup as a player with the Eagles in 1998. “To get it as a coach is almost more satisfying. It’s a little more work when you’re a coach – when you’re a player, you just show up and play, but we have a great bunch of guys who want to work hard. It makes it easy as a coach.”
But Surrey’s ascension to the top of the mountain was not without a few missteps Sunday – namely, two blown leads in the last 10 minutes of the third period. But the Birds are nothing if not resilient – a quality Erhart has trumpeted throughout the post-season. In the third period, with the Eagles protecting a 1-0 lead, Penticton finally got on the board at the 12-minute mark when John Seimer, streaking down the left wing, took the puck below the Surrey goal line and threw it into the high slot, where Louie Nanne found it and wired a wrist shot past Eagles’ goaltender Michael Santaguida. The deadlock didn’t last long, however. Just over three minutes after Nanne’s tying goal, Eagles forward Brady Shaw – a former Vee – restored the visiting team’s lead on the power play when he chipped the puck past Katunar. Surrey had a chance to add an insurance goal late in the period
when Penticton’s Bryan Sinz was whistled for a hit-to-the-head penalty with 2:29 to go, but the power play was short-lived; Shaw took a tripping penalty one minute later. And though the Eagles’ penalty killing had been strong all series, they weren’t able to kill of Shaw’s infraction – with 23 seconds left in the game, Surrey blew its second lead when Penticton’s Michael Rebry tipped a point shot past Santaguida to send the game to overtime. “When we took that penalty, I kind of had a bad feeling, knowing the way the Vees are, knowing the amount of firepower they have,”
said Erhart. “But the first 10 minutes of overtime I thought we dominated, and the last 10 we somehow found a way to hold on, and get the goal in double overtime.” Tambellini put the series to bed 2:34 into the second overtime period when he onetimed a pass from Demico Hannoun past Katunar. “I don’t really know what happened,” said Shaw. “Me, Tambellini and Hannoun were down low, cycling the puck, and then I think Hannoun threw it out in front. One of the Vees’ players missed it and it went right to Tambellini. “He’s got a pretty nice
shot and didn’t make a mistake. Everything else
is kind of a blur.” The championship

was the worst thing in the world when it happened,” Shaw explained. “But I moved on and found a new home here in Surrey. I’m happy to be here and happen to be a champion.” Surrey’s other goal in the game came early, off the stick of captain Brett Mulcahy. Mulcahy notched his second of the playoffs 1:55 into the game when he knocked in a rebound from a Michael Stenerson shot. The Eagles had a chance to make it a two-goal lead when Nic Pierog – whose nine playoff goals matched his regularseason output – rang a shot off the post, and Kevan Killistoff, the overtime hero Thursday in Game 5, knocked the rebound off the iron, as well. The Eagles’ win returns the Fred Page Cup to the BCHL’s Coastal Conference for the first time since 2007, when the Nanaimo Clippers won. In the five years between, only two teams – Penticton and the Vernon Vipers – had won the trophy. Surrey now advances to the Crescent Point Energy Western Canada Cup, which begins Saturday in Nanaimo. The western tournament will see the Eagles, Alberta Junior Hockey League champion Brooks Bandits, Saskatchewan’s Yorkton Terriers, Manitoba champion Steinbach Pistons and the host Nanaimo Clippers vie for two berths in the Royal Bank Cup national championship, set for Summerside, PEI.

Caldwell sisters to world championships Four Pacific Sea Wolves Swim Club members were in Victoria earlier this month, competing at Swim Canada World Championship Trials. Hilary Caldwell won the women’s 200-m backstroke, thus qualifying to represent Canada at the upcoming world championships in Barcelona, Spain. Caldwell’s sister, Katie, also posted strong times, finishing fifth in the 200-m individual medley and second in an earlier CIS meet. The latter result qualifies her for a spot at 2013 World University Championships this summer in Kazan, Russia. Also in Victoria, Olivvya Chow clocked a pair of personal-best times in the 100-m freestyle and 200-m IM to earn her a spot on Team BC, which will compete later this year at the Canada Games in Sherbrooke, Que. Edwin Zhao rounded out the PSW contingent by swimming to a personal-best time in the 200-m butterfly – clocking a time that puts him second in the country for males 16 and under.

compassion A Loving Spoonful, which delivers food to those living with HIV/AIDS, needs volunteer drivers in Surrey on Tuesdays by Boaz Joseph
ne morning three years ago, staff and volunteers arrived at A Loving Spoonful’s head office in downtown Vancouver to find a fivefoot tall mural of their rainbow-andheart-shaped logo on the wall of their loading bay. The paint perpetrator was never identified – not that it was a problem, as the culprit apparently had the spirit of the rest of the crew: Do good, and be subtle. Their discretion occurs every Tuesday afternoon, as drivers, their cars loaded with coolers, fan out from downtown to the city and its suburbs. With no logos on the cars, no uniforms, and plain white plastic bags, they deliver tailored food packages to clients living with HIV/AIDS. A Loving Spoonful Executive Director Lisa Martella says clients’ privacy is such a priority, that in some families, even the children of parents with HIV/AIDS don’t know their mom or dad are sick. Yes, the stigma still exists, even if the illness isn’t considered the death sentence it once was. A Loving Spoonful started as far back as 1989, when a Vancouver woman named Easter Armas (now still a board member) saw a friend eating from a dumpster. He had lost his job because he was HIV-positive. She began to prepare meals for him in her kitchen. Before long, she had clients, donors and volunteers – some with cars. Based in an office and warehouse in False Creek, the mission of A Loving Spoonful is to ensure that no one living with HIV/AIDS also lives with hunger. Each Tuesday, a portion of the society’s volunteers arrive to sort the food load it into cars that arrive in the afternoon. Meals for the 250 to 300 clients in Greater Vancouver are rarely identical, and are closely monitored by a staff dietitian that evaluates the needs
of each individual client. For some clients with serious health issues, the food is minced or puréed, for others restricted-diet. “Food is medicine,” explains Martella, a North Delta resident and former staffer at the Vancouver Food Bank. “In order for the medications to work, you need good food to go with that.” Packages to individual clients hold seven meals and snacks, meant to last as one meal per day for one week. Hampers for families are much larger, providing three meals a day, plus snacks, for the entire family for the week. Each individual and family receiving service is screened for eligibility and nutritional risk. Adapting new program models to tailor to its growing client community over the years, the non-profit society delivers 100,000 meals per year. A Loving Spoonful currently serves three client families and two individuals with HIV/AIDS in Surrey, and the number of clients is expected to grow. “We’ve been in Surrey since 2007,” says Martella. “We have a shortage of volunteer drivers – we’re in desperate need.” While A Loving Spoonful has 300 volunteers and 42 drivers, none are involved in Surrey. Currently, the small staff of seven (two work part-time) is forced to make those deliveries south of the Fraser River. “We’re a very lean organization,” says Martella. “We don’t even have a receptionist.” Martella says drivers for Surrey’s clients don’t have to reside in Surrey. They can live in Delta, White Rock or even Langley, and can deliver the hampers on their way home after picking them up in Vancouver. If you can help, contact Adria Karchut at 604-682-6325 (office), 604-786-6337 (cell) or adriak@ alovingspoonful.org or visit www. alovingspoonful.org

The service is named after the program’s founder, Easter Armas. • Hot Meals for Homeless Youth: A Loving Spoonful has partnered with a youth AIDS organization to provide nutritious hot meals to homeless HIV-positive youth once a week. • Prenatal Program: A Loving Spoonful launched this program in 2010 due to the increased number of pregnant women applying for service. Clients are given attention by a dietitian throughout their pregnancy.

From left: Surrey Hospice and Firefighters’ Charitable Society Community thrift Store volunteer Shelley Paul, manager Donna Chubb, and volunteer Soraya Wright inside the newton store. Society was looking at finding another way to give back to the community, something they have done for many years. Firefighters Jon Caviglia and Terry Hunt approached Yves Thibeault from the Surrey Hospice Foundation about forming a partnership to open a thrift store in Newton. The firefighters had
the manpower to transform the vacant space at 72 Avenue and King George Boulevard, and Surrey Hospice had the volunteers ready to help. The match proved to be perfect. “It seemed to be a great partnership from the beginning,” says Caviglia. “Both sides had something to offer, and really, it
went quite smoothly.” Over the last eight years, the thrift store has developed at loyal clientele, with many of the items donated being new brand-name items – from clothing, to furniture, to small appliances. For volunteer Mae Garland, years working in customer service

volunteered with hospice for many years. “I’m a real people person. It’s good company for me,” she says. For Judy Hunt, mother of firefighter Terry Hunt, spending time at the store has been a tremendous experience. Having been a cashier at a grocery store for more than 30 years, volunteering at the store was a natural transition. “When I retired, my son didn’t want me to get bored so I’ve been at the store since the beginning,” says Hunt. “And I also recently lost my husband, so it’s nice to have people around.” Since 2005 the store has averaged 84 volunteers a year donating nearly 10,000 hours of their time, but they are always looking for more people to come on board. The thrift store has also proven to be an effective tool in the Surrey Fire Department disaster assistance program, offering basic household items to people who are looking
