Dry grads take tax hit Charitable receipts for safe school celebrations not accepted by Canada Revenue Agency by Sheila Reynolds EACH YEAR, parent

groups at local high schools gear up for graduation. And most times, that includes a dry grad celebration, where teens can gather in a drug and alcohol-free environment and celebrate together. Often there is music, a variety of entertainment, food and prizes – all aimed at giving those graduating a safe night to remember. But Trustee Terry Allen says a problem has come to light that could put all that in jeopardy. With such celebrations costing at least $20,000, the fundraising involved is extensive. Schools hold sales of a variety of goods from baked items to plants, they have raffles and parent pub nights. See DRY GRADS / Page 3

End of HST costs Surrey millions

by Kevin Diakiw

SURREY TAXPAYERS are taking an

unexpected hit with the switch back to the Provincial Sales Tax (PST). In three civic projects alone, Surrey

will have to shell out $4 million more with the dissolution of the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST), which combined the Provincial Sales Tax (seven per cent) and Goods and Services Tax (GST, at five per cent).

Editorial 6 Letters 7 Sports 43 Arts 49

Under the HST, Surrey would have received a 10.25 per cent refund for building materials. The extra costs for the new city hall in Whalley will be another $1.5 million, while the tab for two recreation

centres are jumping $2.5 million. Those extra costs were not factored into the current budget, so when Surrey sits down to figure out next year’s budget, savings will have to be found.

Dry grads: in jeopardy? From page 1 However it’s the donations of money and goods from local businesses and individuals that really bolster the bottom line. Allen says while the provincial government supports dry grad initiatives and encourages issuing charitable tax receipts for such events, the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA) currently doesn’t accept dry grad donation receipts. “It will be a nightmare getting charitable donations if you can’t give receipts,” said Allen at last week’s board of education meeting. “It should be a concern… we’re trying to provide a safe environment for kids.” Bob Holmes, president of the Surrey District Parent Advisory Council (DPAC), said the rule isn’t new, but has become an issue at some schools. He said the tax matter comes down to whether the donations are considered education or curriculumrelated. Parents, he said, believe the messages teens glean through dry grad should be taken into account. “Though Bob Holmes it’s not directly curricular,” said Holmes, “there’s still a lesson for students to not drink and drive.” Cindy Dodson, a parent and the Dry Grad Committee Chair at North Surrey Secondary, has been working for a year on the school’s dry grad 2013 event. She says while some companies and individuals have made donations of cash or items without asking for a receipt, other companies have guidelines for charitable donations that include the requirement of a tax receipt. Still others, she said, send a request for a tax receipt along with their donation, which leads to an “awkward situation.” So far, said Dodson, no one has rescinded a donation from her school. “One of the direct consequences of not being able to issue tax receipts is losing those cash donations that parents as well as companies might make...” Dodson said. There are 19 high schools in Surrey, each of which fundraises annually to provide a safe, alcohol and drug-free grad party for teens. The school board has asked district staff to contact the CRA to review its policy. A report is due back to the board before December.

A coal train heads north from the U.S. The trains could snake further north into Surrey if a new coal-handling terminal at Fraser Surrey Docks is approved.

Gill: Too early to say where savings will be found From Page 1

Surrey Coun. Tom Gill

“I think we have some significant challenges in our finances, there’s no question,” said Coun. Tom Gill, chair of the city’s finance committee. “Yes, we need to find some of the dollars.” Surrey is writing a request to the provincial minister of finance asking that the PST on supplies be reimbursed, but even the most hopeful don’t believe that’s going to happen. Gill believes the city can stick to its plan of property tax increases of 2.9 per cent annually with a one per cent road levy. He thinks the savings can be found internally at city hall. But that may pose a significant challenge to staff, which is already operating well under budget – partly due to vacancies, particularly in

fire services, engineering, planning and development, and the city manager’s office. Gill said it’s far too early to say where the savings will be found. “I think it’s going to be a combination of finding the money internally through the existing budgets or looking at some revenuegeneration opportunities we may not have looked at in the past,” Gill said. Surrey council won’t be considering the 2014 budget until fall, but Gill said the anticipated impacts are already back of his mind. “What worries me still is the (funding for) roads,” Gill said. “That would probably be the one priority for me just from the engineering side.”

Critic: Wants public hearings B en’s From page 3 Critics assume it will be a mere formality. Wilson rejects suggestions the port acts as a rubber stamp for its terminal partners, contending it is a fair and rigorous regulator running exemplary public consultations. Opponents, however, see a biased agency overseeing an opaque process that they do not trust. “Maybe they’ve never been challenged before and never had to justify what they do,” said anti-coal activist Kevin Washbrook. He wants public hearings into the new coal terminal, with expert witnesses on health and climate change, not open houses that he said are designed to neutralize dissent. “The only people in favour of this are the port authority, Fraser Surrey Docks and the coal industry,” Washbrook said. The port is also in talks with the region’s health authorities, but port officials say that’s mainly around a longer-term approach to project reviews that could affect human health. Fraser and Vancouver Coastal medical health officers aren’t expected to give input on the merits of the Surrey coal terminal. Billions of infrastructure dollars have been spent on projects like the Roberts Bank rail overpasses and South Fraser Perimeter Road to help speed cargo through the region.

The port faces other contentious proposals, including its Terminal 2 container expansion at Deltaport and a jet fuel pipeline from the Fraser River through Richmond to Vancouver airport.

The economy, mental health, climate Private change and tobacco: Letter writers health care sound off on their election issues hurts

To anyone outside the B.C. NDP’s radical base

who has been considering voting NDP in this election, Adrian Dix’s remarks concerning the proposed expansion of Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline must come as a serious wakeup call as to his real agenda should he become premier. Mr. Dix’s characterization of the resulting increase of tanker traffic through Vancouver to one ship per day as “risky oil tanker traffic” is nothing short of delusional. Tankers have been plying local waters day after day for many years without incident, and all tankers in B.C. waters today must be double-hulled by law. Likewise, the Trans Mountain pipeline has been operating for half a century without incident. A newer pipe running along the same route will pose no greater risk than the existing pipe, and would provide functional backup capability for the Lower Mainland’s energy needs if the existing pipe has to be shut down at some point. Mr. Dix is now revealed by his own words to be not only anti-oil, but anti-prosperity. Make no mistake: B.C.’s future prosperity will depend on exploitation and export of energy to the Asia-Pacific region. If we want a prosperous society with adequate health care, we better be careful how we vote this time around. The B.C. Liberal party, with its HST fiasco, its job-killing carbon tax, and its current unpopular leader, is running 20 points behind the NDP and is going to lose this election, come what may. For voters who care about the future economic prosperity of B.C., the time has now come to vote in a Conservative government headed by the only party leader who will put the economy front and centre while still caring for the environment: former fisherman and MP John Cummins.

Kenneth Lawrence, Surrey

Vote with courage this election Two issues that are important to me are mental

health and climate change. The challenges with these issues are that they need long-term solutions and funding to save money in the distant future. We may not see the financial savings within the four-year term it takes to elect a politician. It is a risk for a politician to do the right thing and it takes risk to vote for a political party wanting to spend our money to do the right thing- especially when we see our taxes going up and we get scared for our own bottom line. It seems like we are thinking we are saving money if we hang onto our money and don’t fix these big problems. But what we fail to see is the huge amount of money and life being sucked down the drain by

not fixing these two problems. I hope we dare do the right thing at election time. I cling to (former federal NDP leader) Jack Layton’s words:. “My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.” So, be uncomfortable at the ballot box – but dare to do the right thing.

Diane Matier, Surrey 

Let’s limit the damage to four years early polling does not look good for the B.C.

Liberal government as voters appear eager to have their tantrum and send them packing. A new NDP government should not construe this as a mandate to start engineering its vision of a utopian paradise in B.C.   Voters’ dubious desire for integrity in government, financial or otherwise, won’t be delivered by the NDP.  Adrian Dix is renowned for his craftiness with altering an official document in abetting another B.C. NDP premier’s violation of conflict-of-interest laws. Apparently two wrongs can make a right in the NDP paradigm. Entrusting the stewardship of the B.C. economy to the NDP is the formula for becoming a have-not province again.    Although, just before the election campaign began, the party was forthright in laying out its platform with its intentions to tax and spend and to run budget deficits, this has been followed up by daily campaign trail promises to pilfer more and more hard-earned money from the people’s pockets. Hopefully the centre-right coalition can get its act together more quickly this time around and the

NDP’s term and damage can be limited to four years. The elite of the B.C. business community and the power brokers of the B.C. Liberal party that installed Christy Clark are well-positioned to endure an NDP government, but the average citizens of B.C. are not.    Tim Opper, Langley

A bad habit for the B.C. Liberals i would never be so naïve as to suggest that tobacco control (tobacco being the leading and most easily and cheaply preventable cause of disease, disability and premature death) should ever be a sliver, never mind an entire plank, of any political party’s pre-election platform. But within four short years of Gordon Campbell’s Liberals coming to power, in 2001, at which time B.C. was number one provincially/territorially in Canada in terms of tobacco control, B.C. plummeted to ninth. And under Christy Clark’s leadership, the situation has not improved. If – correction, when – the NDP wins the election, I have several suggestions as to how Adrian Dix et al can bring B.C. out of the Dark Ages on this important matter, but there is no better place to start than by getting tobacco out of all pharmacies; B.C. is the very last province/territory to do so. Great legacy, Gordo and Christy.   Errol E. Povah, President Airspace Action on Smoking and Health, Delta

Clark’s credibility suffers a downgrade ChrisTy Clark has discredited herself with her misleading claim that B.C. suffered six consecutive credit downgrades in the 1990s because of the NDP. The Dominion Bond service gave B.C. an AA rating through the 1990s, except for 1999 when it was lowered one notch to AA-. Obviously Ms. Clark enjoys distorting the truth for perceived political gain. Don’t be surprised if she claims the B.C. Liberal party’s popularity is over 80 per cent based on three consecutive polls. Ms. Clark will simply take the Liberals’ total from each of the three polls (say 28 per cent) and add them together. Voila – the result is 84 per cent, according to her twisted logic. Maybe the Liberals’ so-called balanced budget is based on the same kind of numerical manipulation.

Lloyd Atkins, Vernon

while 99.9 per CenT of American media shouted the praises of the resilience of Bostonians in the aftermath of the marathon bombings, and 95 per cent of non-American media outlets did the same thing, the reality is that the uncaring, private, for-profit American model of health care has deeply harmed hundreds following that tragic event. They must now rely on charity to keep their household fiscal face above water.  That inconvenient fact was not initially reported at all. Now some Canadian news outlets are reporting that:  “As scores of injured… remain in hospital, efforts are underway to help cover costs of medical bills – which will not cover additional costs for mental health care, or a two-year wait time to get disability insurance.” We all must understand that in Canada, Stephen Harper’s federal Conservatives (and several rightwing provincial political parties) seem committed to moving to the American model of health care. We all need to think about that.

CHILD CARE AND EDUCATION

Caring for kids: Parties have range of ideas

One of a series comparing party platforms on an issue-by-issue basis.

by Tom Fletcher

Child Care policies

offer a clear choice between the B.C. Liberals and the NDP in the May 14 provincial election. Premier Christy Clark wants to take a provincially funded savings account set up for each child born since 2007, and hand out $1,200 to parents who open a Registered Education Savings Plan to begin saving for postsecondary training. Former premier Gordon Campbell established the fund when the B.C. government was enjoying budget surpluses, before the 2008 downturn in the world economy. That’s added to the B.C. Liberal “early years strategy” that includes

full-day kindergarten, $142 million for child care subsidies, $34 million for “Success by Six” programs in 225 communities, and an additional $32 million promised over three years to help create new licensed child care spaces.

NDP leader Adrian Dix has promised to cancel the RESP and other new spending, and redirect it to a “Family Bonus Program,” a direct subsidy of up to $70 per month, per child for lowincome families starting in 2014. The NDP plan would pay the full amount to families with annual

income of $25,000 or less, with payments decreasing on a sliding scale to families with income under $66,000. Applying to all children under 18, the bonus program is projected to cost $210 million a year.

Platform highlights: • The B.C. Conservative pre-election platform offers no specific programs for child care or early childhood education. Its September 2012 policy document supports “the principle that parents are the child’s first and most important teachers.” B.C. Conservatives also support a school voucher system, “ensuring that taxpayers’ dollars follow the student to provincially approved educational options,” and the principle that social services be “delivered by community-based organizations rather than directly by

From school vouchers, to a guaranteed livable income, to direct subsidies, B.C.’s political parties are pledging a variety of measures to help families better care for their children. government.” • The B.C. Green platform promises to create “local child care trusts” monitored by the provincial government. Promised services include “child care, in-home support,

emergency and crisis services, a guaranteed livable income and safe and adequate housing.” The B.C. Green platform offers no costing estimate for any of its programs. • The B.C. Liberals

would require school districts to promote use of school property by licensed child care providers from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays, and create a province-wide child care registry. • The B.C. NDP

would immediately double earnings exemption for employable income assistance recipients, and allow a further exemption for child maintenance payments.

Ridings in focus: SURREY-NEWTON by Rick Kupchuk

emigrated to Canada at age 14. Alan Saldanha, is also running in the riding under a party called Helping Hand. As of Wednesday, the B.C. Green party has yet to register a candidate in Surrey-Newton. The deadline to register with Elections B.C. is Friday, April 26. Surrey-Newton has a large percentage of homes where English is not the language of choice, with 55 per cent of the population able to speak Punjabi and another 20 per cent capable of conversing in Hindi. Fewer than 40 per cent of Surrey-Newton residents can say they hadn’t moved in the five years prior to the 2006 census, one of the highest percentages in British Columbia, and well behind the provincial average of 53.4 per cent. It is also one of the youngest ridings, with the highest percentage (almost half) of its constituents under the age of 18.

Whether they win or lose the provin-

cial election, the New Democrats are hoping to hold on to an NDP stronghold in Surrey-Newton. Only in 2001, when the New Democrats were reduced to two seats, did the B.C. Liberals manage a victory in the riding in the past two decades. Cabinet member Penny Priddy was the Surrey-Newton MLA from 19912001. After convincing wins in the last two elections, the NDP’s Harry Bains will seek a third term. Bains had no trouble winning re-election four years ago, earning 68.9 per cent of the vote, compared to just 25.8 per cent difor Liberal candate Ajay Caleb. He took the seat from the Liberals in the 2005 election, also by a huge margin with 58 per cent of ballots cast. A practising lawyer in Surrey, this year’s Liberal candidate Sukhminder Virk is a graduate of North Surrey Secondary School and Simon Fraser University, and is running in his first provincial election. Running for the B.C. Conservatives will be Satinder Singh, a banker and sea captain fluent in English, Punjabi and Hindi. Born in Amritsar, India, he

Surrey Newton fast facts: • 2006 population: 53,685 • 2011 Population: 60,115 • Increase: 12.0% • Median age: 34 • Non-English mother tongue: 65% • Average income: $66,587

If you live within these boundaries, Surrey-Newton is your riding.

both here in Surrey and in the legislature. The issues range from unfair legislation regarding the redevelopment of manufactured home parks, to unfair rent increases. I have advocated for culturally appropriate foods in our hospital, more buses for South of the Fraser, capital funding for Surrey schools, expansion of Surrey Memorial Hospital ,and more spaces for skills training and post secondary education.

3. What are the most significant issues facing your riding and what would you do about them? I feel the most significant issues facing Surrey-Newton are crime in our neighbourhoods, lack of public transportation, and infrastructure not keeping up with our population growth, including our schools and hospitals. New Democrats will invest carbon tax revenues in transit to reduce traffic congestion,

lower greenhouse gas emissions, and create jobs. We will improve access to quality health care by investing in home care for seniors, improve community based services and facilities and reduce the cost of prescription drugs.

make a difference. I have grown up in Surrey. I understand the issues affecting our community, particularly those affecting our youth. I encourage you to visit my Facebook page (www.facebook.com/ SukhminderVirkBC) or watch this video (http://goo.gl/UvL2U) to learn more.

would you do about them? Having gone door to door meeting the residents of SurreyNewton, the feedback I continue to receive is that people are principally concerned about the economy. They want to ensure that the B.C. economy continues to grow, that we maintain a hard-sought balanced budget, and that we continue encouraging investment in our economy.

In addition, people are also concerned about the future; they want to ensure that there are opportunities for the youth, and that the next generation succeeds.

education, exporting raw B.C. resources out of the country and child poverty. New Democrats will ensure British Columbians have better access to the skills and training they need for the jobs of the future, we will invest in the health of our forests to sustain future jobs, reduce raw log exports to encourage more value-added processing and keep jobs in B.C. And we will implement a comprehensive poverty reduction plan.

voters of this province must decide whether they wish to stay the course and continue growing the economy, adopting sound fiscal policies, and encouraging investment in our communities... or whether they want to take us back to disastrous policies of the 1990s.

Learn about your candidates

B.C. CONSERVATIVES 1. Name, education, and residence: Satinder Singh, 32. Education: Mechanical Engineering at BCIT; nautical sciences at BCIT; degree in maritime studies; mutual fund and real estate licences; and designation of Master Mariner from Transport Canada.

Black Press THE FRASER Valley Real

Estate Board (FVREB) is sponsoring nine all-candidates’ meetings across the region in advance of B.C.’s provincial election on May 14. Organized by local chambers of commerce and the Surrey Board of Trade, the meetings for Surrey-Delta are being held as follows: • Delta-North: Tuesday, April 30 from 7-9 p.m. – Delta Lion Public House & Bistro’s private meeting room, 11186 84 Ave. •   Surrey-White Rock: Friday, May 3 from 7-9 p.m. – Star of the Sea Hall, 15262 Pacific Ave., White Rock. • Surrey’s eight ridings:   Tuesday, May 7 from 5:30-9 p.m. – Eaglequest at Coyote Creek East/ West room, 7778 152 St. For more information: http://www.fvreb. bc.ca/2013election_meetings.html

2. Why should people vote for you? I believe in B.C. – in health care and education, in jobs/skills training and apprenticeships, in balanced budgets and fair taxes, and in safer communities. We have lost too many hard-working residents to other provinces due to the disappointing jobs plan

of the Liberals, which is reminiscent of the dark days of the 1990s under the NDP. I will make sure my voice is representative of the elderly, adult, and the young alike.

2. Why should people vote for you? People should vote for me because I represent a party that does not accept donations. This gives us leverage to make decisions in an unbiased manner and not lean on vested interests. Added to that I  will make it a point to spend at least half a day visiting the voters of my riding (NewtonSurrey) every week to get  firsthand feedback on matters of importance and to enable me to find solutions and put them

forth in the legislature. Online coaching of sixth and seventh graders in need of math tutoring. We propose incentives for students taking science and technology courses. Also a reduction in wait times for surgical procedures.

Undecided? Realtors host candidate debates Meetings for Surrey and North Delta election hopefuls begin April 30

Black Press The Fraser Valley Real Estate

Board (FVREB) is sponsoring nine all-candidates’ meetings across the region in advance of B.C.’s provincial election on May 14. Organized by local chambers of commerce and the Surrey Board of Trade, the events are taking place in Abbotsford, Mission, Langley City and Township, Surrey, North Delta and White Rock and cover 15 electoral ridings.   “This is a seminal election with many new candidates in every riding,” said Ron Todson, presi-

dent of the FVREB. “For many citizens, these meetings may be their only opportunity to see and hear people who will be their representatives in the legislature after May 14. Todson adds that members of the public will be able to pose or submit questions and also hear questions asked by realtors. “As professionals who live and work in our communities, we advocate on behalf of many issues which directly affect the

quality of life in our communities such as economic vitality, the Property Transfer Tax, transportation and the reporting and remediating of drug operations. “We strongly encourage people to come out and even if you don’t have a specific question, some of the issues we raise could help you decide where to mark your ballot on election day.” The meetings for SurreyDelta are being held as follows: • Delta-North: Tuesday, April 30 from 7-9

p.m. – Delta Lion Public House & Bistro’s private meeting room, 11186 84 Ave. •   Surrey-White Rock: Friday, May 3 from 7-9 p.m. – Star of the Sea Hall, 15262 Pacific Ave., White Rock. • Surrey’s eight ridings:   Tuesday, May 7 from 5:30-9 p.m. – Eaglequest at Coyote Creek East/ West room, 7778 152 St. For more information: http:// www.fvreb.bc.ca/2013election_ meetings.html

NDP leaDer Adrian Dix chose Earth Day to announce his party’s plan to “dissolve” the Pacific Carbon Trust, and put carbon offset payments from government operations back into energy efficiency projects. Schools, hospitals and Crown corporations would still pay millions for emissions from their fossil fuel use, Dix announced Monday in Kamloops. The NDP would also redirect $120 million from the carbon tax on fuels “to fight climate change in both urban and rural areas,” Dix said. The carbon tax is currently at $30 a tonne of carbon dioxide emissions, which adds seven cents to the cost of a litre of gasoline and comparable amounts to other fuels. The legislation requires it to be “revenue neutral” to the government through reduced income tax rates, so the NDP redirection implies that those rates may increase. The Pacific Carbon Trust was criticized in March report from B.C. Auditor General John Doyle, who found the largest two recipients of carbon credits were not “credible” carbon offsets. A forest preserve in the Kootenays and an EnCana Corp. gas flaring reduction program had already been established without the $6 million in payments from the Pacific Carbon Trust. B.C. universities paid $4.46 million into the Pacific Carbon Trust in 2011. B.C.’s 60 school districts paid a total of $5.36 million the same year, and the province’s six health authorities paid $5.79 million. The B.C. Liberals’ “carbon neutral government” project has been controversial from the start in 2008. Facing criticism about taking money from cash-strapped schools and giving it to profitable corporations, the government agreed this year to put school district payments in a fund they can apply to for energysaving upgrades. The NDP would extend that approach to the entire program.

Did you know that the City of Surrey has a Tree Protection Bylaw? Tree Protection Bylaw No. 16100 protects trees against damage or removal, including many trees on private property. If any protected tree is removed without a permit, fines can range from $1,000 to $10,000 per tree. Damage includes cutting off the top, removing too many branches, burying the trunk or anything that will cause a tree to die or decline; fines and charges can apply to these practices. If you want to remove a tree on your property, please check our website, call 604-591-4675 or email treebylaw@surrey.ca to check if it is protected first. For tree concerns on City of Surrey property, call 604-501-5050. All tree work should be done by a qualified certified arborist. www.surrey.ca/treeprotection

Delta school budget has fewer cuts

EVERYTHING ON SALE

Trustees approve budget reduction of $2.1 million to balance 2013-14 fiscal year by Adrian MacNair The DelTa Board of

Education approved budget cuts totalling $2.1 million on Tuesday evening, though it will see fewer layoffs and cuts than originally proposed.  The changes are expected to address a projected $3.46-million deficit for the 2013-14 school year. Trustees met twice since last Tuesday’s public meeting to make amendments to the budget that will see a reduction of 13.4 fulltime equivalent (FTE) staff instead of 16.1, and $359,000 in cancelled cutbacks. The budget deficit is being blamed on a combination of a significant enrolment decline, an increase of teacher and employee benefit costs, and the carry-forward of a $1.7-million shortfall from last year. The Delta School District is projecting an enrolment decline of 320 students for 2013-14, although that includes 65 students who did not show up for the 2012-13 school year. Enrolment declines are expected to continue until 2016 when it should level off. The province increased its per-student funding formula in 2013 to $6,900 from $6,784. However, the most contentious reason for the drop in revenue is due to the provincial government slashing $830,000 from Delta’s transportation budget. This has forced Delta to make cuts worth

$380,000 in each of the next two years in Delta’s school bus service. Administration will still see a $50,000-reduction in non-salary costs. Trustee Donna Burke said some parents have told her that “typical students” are being discriminated against by giving priority bus service to students with special needs. But Burke said the district doesn’t bus children with mild or moderate special needs. She said the students on special needs buses have severe, often multi-layered health problems. Trustee Val Windsor said the board has had to remove $21 million from the budget since the 2008-09 school year and there’s nowhere left to cut. The blow to educational assistants was softened, with two FTEs being removed instead of the proposed 3.69, saving the District $86,704. In other changes to the budget, custodial staff and trades will be cut by $132,357 and only lose two FTEs instead of the expected three. School teaching cafeterias will see a $19,000 hit, instead of the proposed $64,000.  Learning resource funding cuts have been changed to keep $100,000 more than originally proposed. Full details on the 2013-14 budget can be found online at web. deltasd.bc.ca.

first round), finished third. L.A. Matheson, which won last year’s Cup, accomplished a 12-percent savings. The other four schools competing in the final round were Clayton Heights, Fleetwood Park, Johnston Heights and Sullivan Heights. “Every school did well and student engagement was high,” Alasdair MacKinnon, the district’s director

&

of energy management and sustainability, said in a statement announcing the win. The secondary school challenge is among energy-saving initiatives aimed at reducing energy use in the Surrey district by 10 million kWh over five years. The district partnered with Pulse Energy two years ago for assistance, getting real-time data on energy consumption for each school. Monday, members of Panorama Ridge’s G-Force “green team” accepted a trophy and plaque denoting their win.

Members of the Surrey chapter of Canadian Parents for French (CPF) stopped by the Surrey Board of Education’s regular meeting last week to present a cheque for $12,500 to purchase Frenchlanguage books. Local CPF president Ellen Holmes presented the cheque to board chairperson Shawn Wilson following pre-

sentations by Frenchlanguage students who demonstrated the success of district French programming with choir, speech and project performances. The money is being distributed to early immersion and late immersion elementary schools and the four French immersion high schools in Surrey.

Kudos for supporting reservists Surrey Schools was presented with an Award of Excellence from the Canadian Forces last Thursday. The award, presented by Lieut.-Col. Rod Needham, who is a Grade 7 teacher at W.E. Kinvig Elementary, recognizes the district for Best Practices in Employer Support for an Educational Institution. Needham and other reservist personnel who work for the district are regularly granted leaves to participate in various training exercises and opportunities with the Canadian Forces.

Critical injuries after trying to slide down handrail at Gateway station by Kevin Diakiw A Surrey mAn iS in critical condition this week after attempting to slide down the handrail at the Gateway SkyTrain station on the weekend. Emergency crews responded to a call on Sunday at 7:30 p.m., after a man, who witnesses say may have been intoxicated, jumped onto the black handrail of the escalator. He managed to stay on, with a wall against his back, until that wall ended. He then fell about 10 metres (30 feet) onto his head. He is in Royal Columbian Hospital, and according to Transit Police spokesperson Anne Drennan, he is still in critical condition. “This is a really unusual and tragic set of circumstances,” Drennan said Wednesday. “Anybody who might consider sliding down the handrail the way you would the bannister of a staircase, it’s not a wise move. It’s extremely dangerous and the drop is fairly severe.”

Man found guilty of dismembering roommate

saLE Summer is coming

Defence now has opportunity to argue whether Ernest Hosack was criminally responsible for 2008 murder

by Sheila Reynolds

A Surrey man accused

of killing and dismembering his roommate – and then freezing certain body parts – was found guilty by a B.C. Supreme Court judge Friday morning. Ernest Allan Hosack, 40, was charged with second-degree murder in the July 2008 death of Richard Falardeau. During Hosack’s lengthy trial last year, the court heard that he and Falardeau, 54, had met in a coffee shop in June 2008 and became roommates, sharing an attic apartment in a house near 143 Street and 88 Avenue. After Falardeau’s brother reported him missing in mid-August of that year, police went to the pair’s apartment, where they were greeted by an overwhelming stench and clouds of flies. They discovered a suitcase in a closet which contained a dismembered body – later identified as Falardeau’s – with the head missing. Plastic bags in the freezer contained Falardeau’s thumbs, testes and anus. Three months later, Falardeau’s skull was found in a grassy area near 92 Avenue and King George Boulevard. Hosack, who was already in jail on unrelated charges, was charged with Falardeau’s murder in May 2009. The court heard that he initially behaved normally during his interview with police, but quickly became delusional. He spoke of nuclear cutting wire and nuclear-free controlled warfare and claimed to have worked with NASA and General Electric. He said his binder full of “valuable” and “potentially dangerous” designs went missing after he had a falling out with Falardeau, who had dumped his belongings outside their house. He denied killing Falardeau, but said he’d cleaned up after “spirits” took his roommate. Hosack then began speaking in a low, guttural tone, saying he was his grandfather, the Entity. He said he’d

rCMP officers examine the scene near 92 Avenue and King George Boulevard where richard Falardeau’s skull was found in November 2008. “disposed of ” Falardeau and ordered him dismembered. His parts, he said, were “sent to different places in hell to be torn apart.” Hosack, speaking as his grandfather, said Falardeau had died “faster than he ever felt possible,” and he told police details about the body parts in the freezer that had never been released publicly. He referred to Fallardeau using his grandson’s head for “ill purposes,” saying “nobody meddles with our business.” In delivering his guilty verdict Monday morning in New Westminster Supreme Court,

Justice Terence Schultes said Hosack was clearly in the grips of some kind of mental illness. During the trial, the defence had suggested Fallardeau, who was a heavy drinker and suffered from an array of health problems, may have died naturally or accidentally prior to his body being tampered with. However, Schultes said the evidence indicated there was an “intentional killing” prior to the dismemberment. “Even in the delusional universe described by Mr. Hosack,” said Schultes, “the savage and bizarre

indignities inflicted on the body reflect a degree of hostility that I find is unlikely to have been generated solely by coming upon Mr. Fallardeau after he had died of natural causes or an unrelated accident.” Rather, he said, the injuries point to an “irrational and homicidal” state of mind. A pathologist identified Falardeau’s cause of death as “homicidal violence,” but noted the hyoid bone in the neck was fractured, consistent with strangulation. The sternum and several ribs were also fractured. He determined the dismemberment occurred after his death. Schultes said Hosack spoke truthfully about Falardeau’s death in his talk with police, but that the actions he attributed to the Entity were, in fact, his own actions. Though Schultes found Hosack guilty, he didn’t formally file the conviction, instead offering the defence an opportunity to argue Hosack was not criminally responsible for the death due to a mental disorder. The next court date is May 9.

Good reading... surreyleader.com

by Jeff Nagel ShopperS and other B.C. visitors driving south to Washington State may be dinged with a border-crossing fee that U.S. officials are eyeing as a potential option to raise money. There’s no indication yet how much it might be, but Canadians who go to the U.S. by air or

sea already pay a $5.50 customs fee, which is often built into airline ticket prices. The Department of Homeland Security is to study the idea and report back on its feasibility within nine months. The directive to investigate indicates it would apply to all passenger vehicles and pedestrians

crossing the border. It doesn’t specify whether all occupants of a car would be charged, but that appears likely as it does indicate bus and train operators would be expected to charge their passengers. Nor is it clear whether it would be levied both entering and leaving the U.S., or just in one direction.

Bellingham Chamber of Commerce president Ken Oplinger said he assumes the fee would apply on all motorists crossing the border – Nexus pass holders would not be exempt. The potential toll on border crossers would generate new revenue for the department, which has been forced by arbitrary U.S. budget cuts to reduce customs staffing levels. “We’re opposed to it,” Oplinger said, warning it could do serious damage to the Whatcom County economy. He said the fee would annoy Canadians and deter some of them from coming south to shop, particularly South of Fraser residents shopping for gas and groceries. But he said he’s most concerned the process of collecting the fee may add to the time needed to cross and dramatically lengthen border waits. Fees on Canadians have been suggested before and Oplinger hopes they’ll be defeated again. “This is a nonstarter,” he said. “We don’t want to move down this path at all.”

The idea quickly came under fire from Lower Mainland shoppers on social media. “This is a joke right,” tweeted Surrey resident Steven Sarai, while others said they’d never pay a fee to cross. Several U.S. politicians in border states also oppose the idea, warning it would hurt the American economy if fewer Canadians visit. The Surrey Board of Trade also opposes the idea, even though it wants to reduce crossborder shopping. “This is not the solution,” said CEO Anita Huberman, adding the Surrey Board of Trade backs Canadian tariff policy reform so Canadian merchants can compete on a more level playing field with U.S. retailers. “Our position at the board of trade is not to be protectionist at the borders.” A poll conducted in February found nearly three-quarters of Metro Vancouver and Fraser Valley residents regularly cross the border to go shopping, with most citing lower prices in U.S. stores.

Charges laid in ‘hit-andrun’ death

by Vikki Hopes

Four men have been charged in relation to the 2009 homicide of Kulwinder Kaur Gill of Abbotsford, including her husband Iqbal Singh Gill. Iqbal, 49, and two others – Gurpreet Singh Atwal, 26, of Abbotsford and Jaspreet Singh Sohi, 28, of Surrey – were arrested and charged Friday with firstdegree murder. Sukhpal Singh Johal, 26, of Surrey has been charged with conspiracy to commit murder and accessory after the fact. Kulwinder Gill , 42, was said to be out for a walk with her husband on the evening of April 27, 2009 when she was struck by a pick-up truck. Responding officers were flagged down by her husband, who Kulwinder Gill led them to a water-filled ditch where Kulwinder Gill had been thrown by the impact. Police seized a suspect vehicle with signs of damage dumped on acreage several blocks away. The incident was reported as a hit-and-run accident at the time and no further details have ever been publicly released to indicate that foul play was suspected.

Poll finds shoppers keen on Target U.S. retailer’s arrival in B.C. may eat into Walmart’s market share

by Jeff Nagel

The impending arrival

of U.S. retailer Target in B.C. may come mainly at the expense of Walmart, a new poll suggests.

An Insights West poll found 82 per cent of shoppers are likely to shop at Target if there’s one nearby and 96 per cent are aware it’s coming. Pollsters say respon-

dents were broadly enthusiastic and attribute that to brand awareness – 69 per cent of B.C. residents polled have visited a Target store in the U.S. before, 35 per cent within the

last year. That level of recognition outstrips other U.S. retailers that have yet to enter the Canadian market, such as JC Penney and Nordstrom. “Target is well

positioned with British Columbians even before market entry,” Insights West senior vice president Catherine Dawson said. About a third of respondents said they

won’t shop less often anywhere else after Target arrives, while 28 per cent said they’d cut back on visits to Walmart. Between 16 and 14 per cent said they’d spend less at other

larger retailers like The Bay, Winners, London Drugs and Best Buy. Most of those polled said they expect new U.S. retailers here will force other chains like Walmart and Costco to reduce their prices. But they’re not under any illusions that prices will be as cheap as at its U.S. stores – 87 per cent said they don’t expect U.S. retailers to offer south-of-the-border prices here. Target’s already open stores in Ontario charge somewhat more than in the U.S. for most items. The retailer has cited higher transportation costs, wages and duties as the reason. Consumers were split on whether Canadian retailers are to blame for a lack of competitiveness against U.S. chains. Dawson said it appears B.C. shoppers are torn about what will happen when Target arrives. “While they will certainly shop these big U.S. retailers and hope for a positive impact on our economy, they worry about it hurting Canadian businesses,” she said. Clothing and various products for the home top the list of categories those polled said they expect to buy at Target Canada. Fourteen per cent of those polled disapprove of U.S. retailers and 31 per cent said they’re indifferent to Target’s plans. The first Lower Mainland locations opening this spring include sites in Delta, Coquitlam and Langley, while more expected soon in Surrey, Richmond, Burnaby, Maple Ridge, Abbotsford and Chilliwack.

that would otherwise be unable to enter the housing market, Charan Sethi claims to have found a niche market. The president of the Tien Shier Group is more than satisfied with sales so far at the Balance housing project in Whalley, a development that boasts the smallest condominiums available for purchase in Canada. A little more than half of the 56 units have been sold, and with registration continuing on the project’s website, selling all the so-called “micro suites” is likely, he said. “It went very good, we’re super happy,” said Sethi of Saturday’s grand opening. “Even better, we’re getting one new registration (online) every 45 minutes. “It’s been one of my best experiences in this business.” The four-storey structure, to be built by the Tien Sher Group of Companies at 108 Avenue and Grosvenor Road, and to be completed by the summer of 2014, will feature apartments as small as 297 square feet. Prices are as low as $109,900 – affordable for those earning just $17 an hour, after a $6,000 down payment. “We had a huge number of people looking to buy (in other projects),” said Sethi. “But they couldn’t afford the prices, because they didn’t have enough for a down payment or because of their income level. So we started working backward, looking at what they could afford. What we came up with is not a lot of space, but still a very nice home.” Sethi said most buyers on the weekend were “first-time buyers, people who don’t own a home and are paying rent. “There was one young guy, he was only 21, and he bought a unit. I thought he was just a boy.” The success of Balance has convinced Sethi there is a market for the micro suites. “I will do another

Mustel Group poll in February that found three out of four B.C. residents support the idea to refine crude oil in Kitimat rather than export the raw product, diluted bitumen  from the Alberta oil sands, by tanker. The same poll found that 57 per cent respondents opposed the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline project. Black has suggested his project may grow to include an alternative pipeline proposal, or oil shipped by the CN Rail line that already connects the Edmonton area with the North Coast.

Sophisticated Yaletown at Bosa’s Pacific Point By Kerry Vital

Luxurious sophistication is of the utmost importance at Bosa Development’s Pacific Point, located in Vancouver’s Yaletown area. With spacious floorplans, modern features and amenities and a fantastic waterside location that appeals to those looking for a vibrant neighbourhood, it comes as no surprise that the homes have been selling quickly. “Response has been overwhelming for Pacific Point,” says Bosa Sales and Marketing Manager Lisa Murrell. “There simply isn’t anything like it in Vancouver.” Pacific Point was purchased by Lower Mainland real estate legend Nat Bosa, who converted it from rental properties into condominiums. Each home has been completely redone, with new appliances, decor and plumbing. “Buyers know they are going to get quality and Nat Bosa’s value assurance backing the project,” Murrell says. Bosa has a reputation for quality homes and great customer service, and this continues with Pacific Point. “Sales have been brisk and we are currently sitting at 40 per cent sold,” says Murrell. “A great selection of homes are still available.” The building holds 241 homes, ranging from 450 to 1,680 square feet. Buyers will find amazing views of False Creek, George Wainborn Park, David Lam Park, English Bay and dowtown

Vancouver from every suite, along with high-end kitchens, elegant living areas and gorgeous bathrooms. The kitchens feature a quartzslab backsplash, polished quartz countertops and stainless-steel appliances, complemented by undercabinet task lighting, a contemporary undermount sink and imported Italian Armony Cucine cabinetry with soft-close doors and drawers, which also appears in the bathrooms. Laminate flooring is included throughout most of the main living areas, with large porcelain tiles in the den and chic carpeting in the bedrooms. The modern bathrooms have their own porcelain tiles and polished quartz

Buyers know they are going to get quality and Nat Bosa’s value assurance backing the project,” says Bosa Sales and Marketing Manager Lisa Murrell.

she thought she was just clumsy. The new diagnosis explained the weakness, and also proved that her other strange symptom, numbness in her left arm, hand and fingers, was not carpal tunnel syndrome. “Things made sense and I was not just a klutz,” she says, recalling the days she would have trouble carrying a laundry basket or walking up the stairs. She’s now much more aware of her environment and actions, such as counting the seven steps in each of the

There are good days and not-so-good days, but the medicines seem to be helping, and her UBC medical support team and employers (Burnaby’s D.A. Townley and Associates, where she works full-time) offer her no end of positive support. She can drive, but can’t take the bus or SkyTrain because the unpredictable vibrations make her lose her balance. (She says in hot weather, her left foot feels like she’s wearing a “big clown shoe”). Burgess says she’s lucky in the sense that she’s right-handed (MS affects her left hand) and that unlike many women, she was diagnosed and doesn’t have children – just two purring “fur kids” and a supportive husband. “Better me than a young mom,” Burgess says of the debilitating disease of the nervous system. She adds one other positive, perhaps life-saving tangent to her story: The MRI scan that confirmed her MS diagnosis also found a lump in her neck that was a tumour that might have been dangerous. It was removed in a surgical procedure in January. Warmer weather means T-shirts, and Burgess will don a purple one on April 28 with her six-member Team Bunditos at the Scotiabank MS Walk at Bear Creek Park. She’s already passed her $500 fundraising goal, and has raised it to $1,500 – all for the MS Society’s efforts to find a cure for MS and provide services for it’s membership of 28,000 people across Canada. The walk will involve 6,000 people across B.C. “There’s got to be a reason some of us get it,” says Burgess. “But we just can’t figure out why.”

Jays top unbeaten Cards North Delta’s PBL team wins 4-2 in Abbotsford

by Rick Kupchuk

by Rick Kupchuk

TeN loCal gymnasts are among the 99 from across the province to qualify for the 2013 Canadian Gymnastics Championships May 21-25 in Ottawa. The provincial team was named by Gymnastics B.C. last week, following a series of trials staged in the winter and spring. Surrey’s Shallon Olsen, 12, of the Omega club in Coquitlam leads the women’s team, and will be looking for a third consecutive national title. She was the Canadian champion in the Novice category in 2011 and won in the Junior group last year. Taylor Oakley of Flicka Gymnastics in North Vancouver is the other Surrey athlete to have qualified in women’s artistic gymnastics. Delta residents Julian Geisler of the Langley Gymnastics Foundation, and Devy Dyson of Richmond Gymnastics will compete in Men’s Artistic Gymnastics. Surrey residents qualifying in Trampoline Gymnastics are Douglas Armstrong and Sarah Kerr of Flip City Gymnastics in Langley, Connor Doherty and Liam Doherty of the Shasta Trampoline Club. Delta residents going to Ottawa in trampoline are Jordan Wilmhurst and Brittany Falconer of Shasta.

The lasT unbeaten team in the

B.C. Premier Baseball League (PBL) has fallen. The Abbotsford Cardinals dropped a 4-2 decision to the North Delta Blue Jays Tuesday night at Delair Park in Abbotford, the first loss in six starts for the Cards. The Blue Jays did all their scoring in the sixth inning, breaking open a scoreless game and improving to 2-2 (won-loss) on the season. Nine North Delta players were sent to the plate in the sixth, with Trevor Brammer, Ryo Takenaka and Trent Fletcher driving in one run each. Takenaka also scored a run on a Cardinals error. Evan Rogers threw five and one-thirds innings for the win, alloying two earned runs on three hits and three walks. He collected five strikeouts. The Blue Jays were at home last Saturday, splitting a double header with the Coquitlam Reds. For a dozen innings, the North Delta Blue Jays were able to completely shut down the Coquitlam Reds. But the final two innings Saturday at Mackie Park allowed the Reds to steal a game, and a split of a B.C. Premier Baseball League double header. North Delta blanked the visitors 5-0 in the first game, but fell 4-2 in the second. The days started well for North Delta, as they bunched five of their seven hits together in the fifth inning of game one, and scored all five of their runs. Brock Morgan drove in Tyo Takenaka with a sacrifice fly for the winning run, and RBI singles by Riley Grewal and Brad Antchak added to the total. Grewal and Antchak crossed on the plate on a double from Trevor Brammer to complete the game’s scoring. Ryan Braun went the distance for the Blue Jays, getting the complete-game shutout. He walked five batters while striking out eight, and gave up just three hits. In the second game, North Delta kept the Reds scoreless for another five innings, and took a 2-0 lead into the sixth before the wheels fell off. Trent Fletcher singled to score Takenaka in the fourth frame, and Grewal’s hit allowed Jordy Cunningham to score for the two-run Blue Jays lead. Four hits and an error allowed Coquitlam to tie the game 2-2 after six innings, and with two-

Three Blue Jays batters then struck out in order to end the game. Luke Manuel took the loss for the home side. Two of the four runs he allowed were unearned, and came on eight hits. Manuel struck out nine Reds batters. Coquitlam also played Tuesday night, drubbing the Whalley Chiefs 11-1. Colton

Wright singled to score Kyle McComb for the lone Chiefs run in the fifth inning, which made the score 5-1 for the Reds. Coquitlam then scored six in the bottom half of the inning, ending the game on the 10-run mercy rule. The Chiefs, now at 1-5 on the season, will host North Delta for two games Saturday at Whalley Stadium. The first game is scheduled for a noon start. FOUL LINES: Two Blue Jays

are among the PBL’s top 10 in batting, along with G Hasner of the Chiefs. Riley Grewal is ranked second with a .545 average, while Ryo Takenaka is fifth at .444. Hasner is eighth, batting .438. Ryan Braun is the lone local player among the top 10 pitchers, with a .91 earned run average that ranks fifth in the league. North Delta pitcher Luke Manuel has 22 strikeouts, the second-best total in the PBL.

by Nick Greenizan

Western Canada Cup, which hits the ice in Nanaimo this weekend. And considering all but their B.C. Hockey League colleagues, the Nanaimo Clippers, will be unfamiliar to them, it’s not a bad strategy.

It’s boilerplate coach-speak – in the sports cliche hall of fame alongside such gems as “giving it 110 per cent,” and “it is what it is.” Nevertheless, “one game at a time” is exactly the way Surrey Eagles head coach Matt Erhart and his players are planning to prepare for the Crescent Point Energy

against the Steinbach Pistons, champs of Manitoba’s Junior A circuit. Other teams taking part include the host Clippers – who’ve sat idle since March 20 after being eliminated in the first-round of BCHL playoffs – and the Yorkton Terriers (Saskatchewan). “We’re not familiar (with the other teams), but it’s the same for everybody,” Erhart said.

“We play Brooks first, so I’m going to watch Brooks’ last game online, and show it to the guys so we can get a feel for them, and our game Saturday is the first one of the day, so after that, we can watch all the other teams in person. “We’re just going to focus on one team at a time. We’ll worry about Brooks, then move on to (Steinbach).” The five-team tournament will start

with a round-robin, in which each team plays each other once. From there, the fifth-place team is eliminated, and the No. 1 and 2 seeds will face off, with the winner earning the first berth in the Royal Bank Cup national tournament. The three and four seeds will also play, with the loser eliminated and the winner playing whichever top-two seed lost the one-versus-two seed

get in on a very good thing.

battle. The winner of that game also earns a berth in the RBC Cup, set for next month in Summerside, P.E.I. “It’s kind of set up like curling, the way the tournament works,” Erhart said. “It’s good because it rewards you for having a good round-robin, but at the same time, if you have a rough start and lose a couple, you’re still able to come back.” The Eagles, who defeated the Penticton Vees for the Fred Page Cup Sunday night, are on a 14-3 run this post-season, and while the other teams, Nanaimo excluded, are also riding momentum gained by winning their respective league titles, Erhart is confident his group will continue its charge. “We’re 14-3, and really, have been on a pretty good roll since Christmas,” he said.

Midway through BC Soccer’s Provincial Cup competitions, it’s still possible Surrey United can achieve a rare double for the second consecutive year. Both the men’s and women’s teams from United have reached the semifinal round in their knockout competitions, a year after each won a B.C. championship and a berth in the national championships. The women, seeking a 10th consecutive Provincial Cup title, easily stopped the Victoria Athletics 8-1 last Sunday at Cloverdale Athletic Park. United will host the Castaways of the Lower Island Women’s Soccer Association Sunday at 12:30 p.m. in Cloverdale. Surrey United Firefighters, also playing in Cloverdale on Sunday, stopped Vancouver Metro Soccer League (VMSL) rivals Estrella de Chile 2-1 in a Provincial Cup men’s game. Ryan Reynolds headed home a cross from Steve Kindel to give Surrey the lead after 20 minutes of play. United was forced to play a man down for about 20 minutes, as Colin Streckmann was sent off for his second yellow card of the match. Estrella de Chile then lost a player for a second caution early in the second half, and with the teams playing with 10 men each, the visitors tied the game. Joseph Martin then netted the winning goal for Surrey with just 20 minutes to play. United Firefighters will be in Vancouver tomorrow night (Friday) to face the Vancouver Thunderbirds of the Pacific Coast Soccer League in a semifinal contest. The North Delta Rangers of the Fraser Valley Soccer League are in the final four of the Deryl Hughes Cup for Masters (over-35) teams. The Rangers, seeded first in the 16-team competition, got past the University of Victoria 3-1 last weekend, and will face PCOV of the VMSL in the semifinal round. The Rangers went 15-2-1 (won-lost-tied) to finish atop the Masters Premier division of the Fraser Valley Soccer League. PCOV placed second in the Masters Premier group in the VMSL with an 8-3-7 mark. Guildford FC will host the Metro-Ford Junior Wolves Saturday at noon at Newton Athletic Park in a Doug Day (under-21) semifinal contest. Guildford stopped Westcastle United 1-0 last Sunday, a week after a 1-0 win over the tournament’s top-seeded North Coquitlam United. The Wolves topped the under-21 division of the VMSL this past season with a 16-2-2 record, four points better than Guildford (10-2-4). Each team had shutout wins on the road over their opponent in league play, with Guildford winning 3-0 on Sept. 30, and the Wolves posting a 1-0 victory on Dec. 2.

From page 44 Shaw learned he’d been invited by the Montreal Canadiens to the NHL team’s development camp this summer. “When they asked me to come to their camp, I was pretty excited,” said Shaw, who is the son of former NHL defenceman Brad Shaw. “It’ll be tough. I’m going to put in a lot of hard work leading up

to it, and hopefully it’ll pay off.” Erhart said Shaw’s invite was “nice recognition” for the veteran forward, who finished fifth in BCHL scoring during the regular season, with 38 goals and 32 assists in 54 games. “It’s exciting news for Brady,” Erhart said. “I think his overall game has gone to the next level since he joined our team. It’ll be a good experience for him.”


Rawlings makes the AHL Netminder from North Delta signs with Portland Pirates

by Rick Kupchuk Just weeks after turn-

ing pro, Chris Rawlings of North Delta moved one step up the minor hockey ladder. The goaltender played in his first American Hockey League game Sunday night for the Portland Pirates, just a day after signing an amateur tryout contract with the minor-league affiliate of the Phoenix Coyotes. He played the final 40 minutes of a 4-1 loss to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers in Bridgeport, Connecticut, making 19 saves on 20 shots, allowing just one goal. He turned pro just weeks earlier, and played two games with the Idaho Steelheads of the East Coast Hockey League. He earned a shutout in his first

March 29. He played the final two periods the next

night, stopping 16 of 17 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Stockton Thunder. Rawlings, 24, just completed his fourth season with the Northeastern Huskies in the Hockey East league of the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association), where he set a record for career shutouts with 11. He ranks second all-time among Huskies net minders with a .914 save percentage, and third with 47 wins and a 2.83 goals against average. Prior to joining the Northeastern roster, he played four seasons in the BC Hockey League (BCHL) with the Powell River Kings, Salmon Arm Silverbacks and Cowichan Valley Capitals. In 160 career games in the BCHL, he won 87 games and earned eight shutouts.

Hopping outside the box Sure, they’ll perform classical and original pieces, but don’t be surprised if Infinitus feels the urge to mix things up a bit by Alex Browne

D

on’t box them in. The Vancouver-based string trio Infinitus – as the name suggests – is more to do with the realm of infinite musical possibility than pat categorization. In fact, the only box they acknowledge in their performing is their beat box. It’s become an established feature of the crowd-pleasing, hip-hop take on classical performance they’ve become renowned for in concerts across Canada and the U.S. But that’s not the whole Infinitus story either, according to the trio’s violinist and spokesman John H. Littlejohn. The first half of their debut performance in South Surrey next Friday will likely follow a strictly classical approach, he added. “The first half will feature Dohnanyi’s Serenade For String Trio – a very beautiful piece,” he noted. “We often play completely classical, depending on the context and what’s appropriate, such as if we’re doing an all-classical series. “We don’t feel stifled in any way.” In fact, he and twin brothers Alex Cheung (cello) and Anthony Cheung (viola) all met and became close friends while being thoroughly schooled in classical technique at the University of Michigan (Littlejohn was born and raised in Michigan, while the Cheungs were born in Montreal but grew up in Ohio). Although they went their separate ways while attending graduate school (Littlejohn at the Peabody Institute, the Cheungs at UBC) they stayed in touch and started gigging together in a string quartet around 2006, with Littlejohn travelling up from Texas for performances before he finally settled in Canada. The current format and free-and-easy personality of Infinitus really began when the group metamorphosed into a trio in 2008. “We played with some very fine musicians but we couldn’t find a fourth member who could do classical and non-classical at the same time,” Littlejohn said. “We were waiting for a person who wasn’t there.” Once they made the decision to become a trio they found it easier to expand on traditional string repertoire by developing their own Latin, jazz and hip hop originals and arrangements – complete with the beat box. It’s that’s the side of their playing – emphasizing their own joy in music – that will be featured in the second half of the local appearance, Littlejohn said. “We’ll be doing some of our originals, some remixes of classical pieces and some hip hop,” he added, noting that the trio – who like to memorize even their classical pieces rather than playing with heads stuck in books – also like to keep it loose when determining the final playlist for a specific evening. “We don’t look like a concert,” he said. “We like to think we’re hanging out. We encourage people to clap between movements. We’re always with the audience, talking with them, sharing with them. We’re together – there’s not some wall up between us.

“That’s how classical music used to be when it was first played – really, we’re getting back to the original approach.” About 70 per cent of the performance of their own compositions is improvising on chord structures, he noted, adding that it sometimes leads to wild flights of fancy and extended introductions that raise a chuckle among the musicians themselves. While Littlejohn said the trio makes “no apologies for who we are,” he admits they had a little trepidation about the reaction they’d receive from audiences when they first took the beat box to performances. They needn’t have worried, he said, adding that the approach seemed to work even with more senior audiences who might have been expected to be more conservative. “The only complaint we got at first was that people couldn’t hear it, but we soon figured out how to mic it,” he said. “For us, one of the defining moments was a performance in Burns Lake. We were trying to be careful, but we kind of touched it off and this senior lady in the front row yelled out ‘Boy that’s hot!’ “It turned out they wanted hip hop.” Infinitus (presented by Peninsula Productions) performs May 3, 8 p.m. at First United Church, 15385 Semiahmoo Ave.) Tickets ($25 advance, $30 at the door) are available online at https://tickets.surrey.ca

Granted, seniors deserve help sUrrey seniors will benefit from a

$20,000 Age-friendly grant to help create programs or tools that address the needs of the city’s older residents. The City of Surrey is one of 27 communities receiving grants for 2013. “As I get out in the community and talk to seniors throughout the province, I’ve heard over and over from seniors how important it is to have

the opportunity to stay at home, close to friends, family and community. It is great news that the work Surrey is doing will support local seniors in remaining independent longer,” said Minister of State for Seniors Ralph Sultan. “As a senior, I know firsthand that age-friendly supports can make life easier for senior residents and their families and caregivers.” The City of Surrey will use the grant to expand the A Roof Over My Head workshop series, which provides

This new position was created to help seniors manage issues unique to getting older, like the transition to retirement or the emotional effects of dealing with a health challenge. “It’s no secret that the senior’s population in Delta is growing,’ says Doug Sabourin, Deltassist executive director. “We have been planning to add a Senior’s Counsellor for some time, and we are very happy to now be able to offer extra support to a special group of people.” For seniors that face a personal challenge, the counsellor will conduct an initial review of specific needs, provide short term counselling and emotional support, provide any information to help the senior deal with the challenge he or she faces and provide any further connections to other resources as needed. Counselling is just the latest service that Deltassist provides to Delta seniors.
