Crash kills five family members Vehicle carrying two children and three adults was sheared in half in collision by Tracy Holmes FIVE MEMBERS of a Newton family are dead following a devastating crash at 176 Street and 32 Avenue Sunday. It occurred around 11 a.m., when a white Dodge Caravan travelling on 32 Avenue struck a small, dark car that was northbound on 176 Street. The collision sheared the car in half, flipped the minivan onto its roof and scattered debris for hundreds of metres. “We’ve got a father whose two kids, wife, mother and sister – all gone,” a Surrey RCMP spokesman said Monday. The victims – a three-year-old girl, her five-year-old brother, their mom, aged 31, their aunt, 47, and their grandmother, 68 – were travelling in a small, dark car when they were struck as they passed through the intersection. The impact was so destructive, police could not immediately determine the make or model of the car. “One of the most horrific scenes I’ve ever seen,” Sgt. Dale Carr said at the crash site, citing speed as a clear factor. “There are pieces of evidence where pieces of evidence shouldn’t be.” Police are investigation witness reports that allege the van went through a red light. The driver, a man in his 40s, was airlifted to hospital in serious condition. The investigation is ongoing, and it remained unclear at The Leader’s press time if a medical condition may have played a role in the collision. Nearby resident Fabio Nicoli told CTV the impact of the two vehicles shook his house. “All you hear is bam, a bomb go off. The house vibrated,” he said. Nicoli described the aftermath as a scene that made him want to cry. “Just seeing a little baby, seeing when they were covering the body,” he said. “I was sitting there with one of the firefighters and he was bawling.”

Getting teens talking about a tough topic Surrey Women’s Centre partners with Surrey students to develop online questionnaire on sexual assault by Sheila Reynolds SEXUAL VIOLENCE. Consent. Rape.

They’re uncomfortable topics for people of any age to discuss. But the Surrey Women’s Centre (SWC) is hoping its latest partnership with students from two local high schools will get youth to put aside the awkwardness and embarrassment

and talk about sexual assault. “They need to start discussing what they know and don’t know, to avoid finding out the hard way,” said Quinn, a student at Guildford Learning Centre. (Last names of students have been withheld for their privacy). Located online at www.i-will.ca, the interactive social media campaign contains a gritty online quiz based on

real experiences of sex, violence and relationships. Aimed at teens aged 13-18, it asks multiple choice questions about what sexual assault is, identifying sexist advertising, myths about the meaning of consent and gender comparisons. See BOYCE / Page 4

Man jailed for violent sexual assault of student Michael Herrera was training to be a teacher when he raped a 15-year-old Surrey girl

by Sheila Reynolds A FormEr StuDEnt tEAChEr in Surrey who

violently sexually assaulted a 15-year-old student during a master/slave sexual scenario has been sentenced to 26 months in federal prison. It was May 2010 and Michael Herrera, then 24, was completing his final practicum – classroom experience required to be certified as a B.C. teacher – when he developed a relationship with the teen girl. (There is a publication ban on any information that could identify the victim.) The girl had written an autobiography in which she told about her difficult childhood, which included sexual abuse. Herrera read it and in turn, shared with her his experiences. The teen felt a connection. During sentencing at New Westminster Supreme Court on Friday (April 26), Crown prosecutor Winston Sayson said Herrera began “grooming” the young victim to get closer to her. He started by telling her she was a talented writer – affirmation she welcomed, given her background, and eventually suggested they meet somewhere in the Surrey high school that didn’t have cameras. There, he groped her. “What the accused did … was despicable, disturbing and devastating,” said Sayson. “This is made more reprehensible as the accused knew the vulnerability of the victim.” The teen sent him a text message saying she was conflicted, that she knew students and teachers shouldn’t be engaged in such activities. Herrera responded by saying “What is so bad about being selfish? Is it bad to be happy?” The two then planned to meet at Herrera’s home on May 17, 2010, when they would engage in a master/slave sexual encounter. Herrera told the girl they’d discuss the “rules,” but to “be prepared to turn your body over to me for whatever purposes I see fit.” The victim cried in court as explicit details of her discussions with Herrera were read.

The court heard that she was nervous and fearful going to his house. When they started getting intimate, she reconsidered and tried to escape, screaming and saying a pre-arranged “safe word” to indicate she wanted to stop. But Herrera caught her, put his hand over her mouth and forced her to have intercourse. He then made her do housework, all the while demeaning and hitting her. He had intercourse with her twice more, hit her with a belt, bit and choked her before she left his home that afternoon. Herrera told her not to tell anyone and delete her emails. The teen eventually confided in her friends and parents. A sexual assault exam at the hospital revealed 29 injuries. The girl informed Herrera she had told people and he advised her to tell everyone it was hallucinations. Herrera, 27, pleaded guilty to sexual assault last October. The petite victim, about six inches shorter and half the weight of Herrera, said she’s suffered nightmares, memory loss, has physical scars and had trouble finishing high school. “I felt stupid and vulnerable to allow myself to trust so easily,” said the girl, now 18, adding she is still wary of men. During psychological evaluation, Herrera was diagnosed as a sexual sadist. On Friday, he stood in court and apologized. Facing the judge. “I feel like I should look over [at the victim], but I’m very ashamed.” The Crown wanted Herrera, who has no prior convictions, sentenced to either two years less a day in provincial prison followed by three years probation, or two-and-a-half to three years in federal jail. The defence suggested a sentence of 26 months in federal prison. “What’s happened here is so, so distressing,” Justice James Williams said to Herrera, adding children have a right to be safe from harm at school.

“What the accused did ... was despicable, disturbing and devastating.” Winston Sayson

‘We do not want your dirty money’

Surrey RCMP urges businesses to join with police and shun known criminals in light of brazen fatal shooting by Kevin Diakiw and Tracy Holmes Police in Surrey are

dropping the hammer on gangsters, while asking clubs, restaurants and gyms to do the same by refusing to serve them. The RCMP will be at the side of those that do, said Surrey’s Officer in Charge Chief Supt. Bill Fordy, who on Thursday announced the force will launch a tough new crackdown on known criminals in the city. The move came a day after Craig Widdifield, 28, was gunned down in what police say was a targeted, gangland shooting at Morgan Crossing

he looked out of his bedroom window after hearing “three or four” shots from what sounded like an automatic weapon. “I seen the man on the ground,” the 17-year-old said. “He looked… pretty young. He wasn’t moving.” The witness described the victim as a white male; he was wearing bright orange shoes, a grey T-shirt or hoodie, and blue jeans or darkcoloured pants. The incident triggered “pure chaos,” he said. “Everyone was kind of screaming and in shock. It looked like the victim was deceased almost instantly. It was quick.”

“It’s time for us as a society to stand together and to stop this violence.” Chief Supt. BIll Fordy Police cordoned off a large section of the shopping centre parking lot, as a crowd gathered. Area businesses were evacuated. Melany Hansen said she was in a class at the

Steve Nash gym when the shooting occurred. She didn’t hear anything, but said a woman came into the gym describing a pool of blood outside. Widdifield had no criminal record, although he was the subject of a Civil Forfeiture action connected to an April 10, 2007 traffic stop. A Surrey Mountie had pulled over a car with Widdifield and three others in it that had $46,750 in the trunk. Police asserted the money was the proceeds of drug sales and sought to seize it. The process is still before the courts. Fordy expressed great See SHOOTING / Page 8

Dozens of officers raced to the mall, in the 15700-block of Croydon Drive, after shots rang out around 7 p.m. Wednesday, sparking multiple 911 calls.

BOSTON AFTERMATH

Responding to terror

RAESIDE

T

he Boston Marathon bombing garnered a tremendous amount of public and media attention last week, largely because of where the attack occurred and the subsequent intense hunt for the two suspects. The hunt became even more intense on Friday, when virtually the entire city of Boston and its immediate neighbours were shut down as police narrowed the search for the one remaining suspect. As the search narrowed, both Canadian and American TV channels were focusing on every step, even though there was little to report. At about 8 p.m. Boston time, police knew where the remaining suspect was and after a short time, he was arrested and taken to hospital, where he remains in serious condition. The activities in Boston have again focused attention on acts of terrorism, and it appears this was such an act. The older suspect, who was killed early Friday morning during a shootout with police, was an ethnic Chechen who had recently spent six months there. According to a number of reports, he had become more of a fundamentalist Muslim in recent years. His younger brother is the wounded suspect. On Monday, we learned that two suspects were plotting to blow up a Via Rail train in Eastern Canada. The plan was linked to al-Qaeda. The two separate events show that there are people in both Canada and the U.S. who believe that committing acts of terror is a good use of their time and resources. The question is, how best do we as a society respond to this? The answer is not simply to bring in more and more laws. Restricting citizens’ rights actually lets the terrorists win. There are significant anti-terrorism laws in place, and they help police uncover many of these incidents before they take place. There is no question that they are necessary. In Boston, one of the most important tools allowing police to narrow the field of suspects was surveillance video from a nearby department store. Such surveillance cameras should not be a problem for people going about their business in a lawabiding way. More such video cameras in public places may be necessary. As citizens, we should be able to move about freely and not be subject to arrest for no reason. More surveillance videos may make that a reality, while inhibiting terrorists.

NDP leader Adrian Dix has finally rolled out his “fully costed” election platform. Major policy announcements had been released previously, but there was plenty more spending added to the total. The NDP’s health care plan is surprisingly modest – more money for home support, residential senior care, mental health and addiction services and a rural acute care initiative totaling $159 million over three years. As health critic Mike Farnworth points out, the residential care increase will allow seniors two baths a week instead of one. Full marks to the NDP for this part of the platform. Increases to Community Living B.C., children and families programs and aboriginal friendship centres are also commendable. Other NDP proposals don’t inspire as much confidence.  Raise welfare rates $20 a month and index them to inflation. Index the minimum wage to inflation too, at a time when inflation can only rise.

years. The B.C. Liberals point to an impressive string of “net zero” wage settlements with public sector unions, the core of their spending control record. Would the NDP continue to hold the line on public service wages, as the B.C. Liberals have done? Dix’s NDP caucus and staff is stocked with former government union officials. Party president Moe Sihota is essentially a direct employee of the same unions. The B.C. Federation of Labour has shaped the NDP’s Labour Code changes, which we won’t see until after the May 14 vote. And how much money does the “fully costed” NDP plan set aside to pay wage increases for its government union brothers and sisters? Zero. Since this is the party that appears to be cruising to victory in the May 14 election, I’ll look at what’s not in their platform and other issues next week.

Tough More carbon tax, more transit revenues choices to make

On behalf of the Delta Board of

Education, I would like to thank all of the parents, staff, students and community members who provided feedback and insight throughout this year’s budget process. Our board has approved a budget that grapples with declining enrolment and increasing employee benefit and pension costs, all the while remaining committed to our vision of being a leading district for innovative teaching and learner success. Presently, out of a total of 60 school districts in British Columbia, the Delta School District has the second-lowest spending on administration costs, yet the fifthhighest spending on instructional services. These figures demonstrate our strong commitment to placing the needs of our learners first. One of the most difficult aspects of this year’s budget process has been tackling a 47-per-cent reduction in funding from the Ministry of Education for student transportation. The board has made the decision to allocate the remaining transportation funding to support our students with special needs. Based on the feedback received during the budget process, we adjusted some of the budget recommendations originally brought forward. Of the previously proposed reductions of 3.69 full-time education assistants and three custodial/trades staff, 1.69 fulltime education assistants and one full-time custodial position have been restored back to the 2013-14 budget. In addition to these staffing amendments, for the 2013-14 school year, proposed funding reductions for the culinary arts programs have been decreased from $64,000 to $19,000. Further, the board has largely restored the proposed reduction in school supplies, 70 per cent of the proposed reduction in learning resource funding, and removed the maintenance supply budget cut. While it has been difficult to tackle another deficit, the Delta School District continues to be an exceptional educational community. The Delta Board of Education would like to thank everyone who works so hard to make our district a hub of innovation, learning, and student success. Laura Dixon Chairperson, Delta Board of Education

Re: “RefeRendum on new TransLink taxes has fans, foes,” The Leader. Our region’s public transit needs are too complex and important to decide by referendum. Mayor Dianne Watts is right when she predicts the downside of a regional referendum: Municipalities that already have decent transit services, like Vancouver or Burnaby, won’t want to pay for Surrey’s transit improvements like a light rail network.

Surrey is at a disadvantage since most transit infrastructure has been built north of the Fraser. Already one of our fastest-growing cities, Surrey risks becoming even more gridlocked. But there’s a solution. The province can strengthen the carbon pollution tax by increasing and directing it to fund the transit stalemate. Close the loophole that gives industrial polluters a free pass to pollute, and increase the tax at the same rate it has been increasing since 2008.

That’s how you generate up to $1 billion a year in new revenue for transit and other pressing environmental needs. Surrey and all municipalities will benefit from cleaner air, less traffic and jobs that matter. Mayor Watts is right when she says that Surrey can’t afford any more delays and that decisive leadership is needed.

Thank you, blood services volunteers

EVAN SEAL / THE LEADER

Canadian blood services volunteer dave Cowie has been volunteering at the surrey clinic (now located at 15285 101 ave.) for nine years. To make an appointment to give blood, call 1-888-2-dOnaTe (1-888-236-6283).

On The heels of National Volunteer Week (April 21-27), Canadian Blood Services thanks the 17,000 volunteers who dedicated 215,000 hours of their time in the last year to help support Canada’s blood system. In B.C. and the Yukon region, 1,800 volunteers invested nearly 35,000 hours to assist in more than 2,300 community and clinic events that enable our organization to keep expenses low.   Nation-wide, our volunteers are involved in leading positive change in a variety of ways, all of them vital: They coordinate and host blood donor clinics, greet and assist donors, promote key campaigns throughout the year, and publicly speak about the need for blood and stem cell donation. Our volunteers provide considerable value to the donation experience, which is recognized by many of our donors. Their combined efforts and commitment help us to deliver daily on our organization’s services that are so important to many Canadians. We put together a special message of thanks for our volunteers from blood donors across the country: http://bit. ly/11q5Zgh Thank you to those who currently volunteer with Canadian Blood Services and other charitable organizations. Your efforts and enthusiasm are truly appreciated.

Ed Yee Director of Donor and Clinic Services Canadian Blood Services, B.C. and

Port should not Time for electoral change be oil export giant The headlIne in your April 24 (online) story reporting my comments on the NDP’s position on Kinder Morgan and oil tanker traffic through the Port of Vancouver does not accurately reflect my position or that of the B.C. NDP (“New Kinder Morgan oil port might satisfy NDP promise”). Adrian Dix and the B.C. NDP believe that any proposal to dramatically increase the flow of oil through the Kinder Morgan pipeline is not acceptable, no matter where the pipeline terminates. In our view, the Port of Vancouver should not be transformed into a major oil export facility. Kinder Morgan has not applied for approval of its plans and we await their formal application. Should British Columbians choose to elect a B.C. NDP government, we will conduct a made-in-B.C. review of their proposal and decisions will be made here in British Columbia.

John Horgan, B.C. NDP energy critic

I was surprised to learn that the B.C. Liberal candidate for Cloverdale, Stephanie Cadieux has no voice of her own. Recently I received a phone call asking me to support her, from whom but the man who abandoned ship, Kevin Falcon, but sailed B.C.’s economy into a huge deficit. This desperate move will result in exactly the opposite for me and many others in the community that I spoke with. Perhaps Cadieux can explain to us why she and her government eliminated the Ministry of Women’s Equality and core funding for all 37 women’s centres, reduced home support and

social assistance, eliminated the $100 child exemption, cut childcare funding, removed pay equity from the human rights code, allowed contracting out with Bill 20, cut legal aid, eliminated student grants for women with dependents, and cut funding for services to developmentally disabled people. In the last department that she oversaw, 40 per cent of surveyed workers had been required to cut services.  The Liberals’ early years strategy allocates $76 million on early years services. This with nothing happening the first year but a study and then a slow increase spread over eight years. In comparison, the NDP

will invest $210 million a year assisting children and families in need as well as having a poverty reduction strategy. Up to 8,400 children will be lifted out of poverty and families will save an average of 2,000 per year in child care costs as well as see an increase in spaces and improvement in early learning. Sorry, my vote this time will go to B.C. NDP candidate Harry Kooner. He has worked hard for his family and his Cloverdale community and chose to run for the party that will finally put families first.

VANCOUVER FRASER PORT AUTHORITY

NOTICE

Shooting: Marks Surrey’s 11th murder of the year From page 5 concern that Wednesday’s shooting occurred in a residential area and said in the coming days, the message will be sent out loud and clear to all known gangsters in Surrey. “You are not welcome here,” Fordy said. “I am redirecting the men and women that work for me to go out and interact with those in the criminal element, also to attend the places they frequent, places like restaurants, bars and gyms.” He is also asking the

owners of those establishments to deliver a similar message to gangsters: “We do not want you here, and we do not want your dirty money.” Police from the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) and the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit said they will be sharing information about all gangsters known to them. Some of that information may also be made public. Widdifield was Surrey’s latest murder, bringing to 11 the number of people killed this year.

In all of last year, there were 10 murders, and the annual average since 2001 has been 13. Wednesday’s shooting is the latest in a series of violent incidents in Surrey this year. • On Jan. 13 at 7 p.m., Manjot Dhillon was shot and killed near 168 Street and 76 Avenue. • Later that same night, John McGiveron and Geordie Carlow, both 33, were found shot to death in a parkade near 128 Street and 94 Avenue. Police don’t believe that shooting was gang related.

• On Jan. 15, Manjinder Singh Hairan, 29, was fatally gunned down near 127 Street and 112B Avenue in Bridgeview. Jujhar Singh Khun-Khun was also shot. According to IHIT, the Hairan and Dhillon shootings were gang-related. • On Jan 28, police found the body of Jaskaran Singh Sandhu at 123 Street and Colebrook Road. He was known to police, who said the killing was targeted and possibly gang related. • On Feb. 19, Janice Shore succumbed after a severe beating in Whalley. She had no gang associations. • On Feb. 21, Vimal Chand, 29, was found murdered in a car near Hyland Elementary School at 66 Avenue and 140 Street. • On March 14, police on patrol found the body of 54-year-old Brett Sheldon Lietz at 125A Street and Colebrook Road. A wider search with police dogs turned up the body of 40-year-old Nicole Madelynn Brochu. • On March 19, just before 5 p.m., Surrey RCMP were called to a duplex at 13049 103 Avenue for an unconscious woman. Jackie Olson, 43, had been stabbed and died at the scene. Fordy said it’s time for the community to begin seeing this as a societal problem. “We’ve had enough,” Fordy said. “It is time for us as a society to stand together and to stop this violence.”

squared off Friday in a debate on CKNW radio, with B.C. Liberal leader Christy Clark and NDP leader Adrian Dix trading accusations of dishonesty over budget deficits and oil pipelines. B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins and B.C. Green party leader Jane Sterk got their first high-profile exposure to voters provincewide. A televised debate is set for 6:30 p.m. Monday, April 29. As the key part of the campaign for the May 14 election approaches, Angus Reid Public Opinion’s monthly poll showed Clark’s B.C. Liberals up three points to 31 per cent in voting intention. The NDP held steady with a commanding lead of 45 per cent, while the B.C. Conservatives slipped one point to 11 per cent and the Greens lost three points to 10 per cent. In the debate, Dix pressed his campaign’s major attack, that the government’s preelection budget isn’t balanced, because the B.C. Liberal government lowballed spending and claimed revenues from pending asset sales. Clark said rating agencies maintained B.C.’s tripleA credit rating because they accept the revenue and debt forecasts in the February budget. Dix was pressed on his decision to oppose expansion of the 60-yearold Trans Mountain oil pipeline from northern Alberta to Burnaby and northwest Washington. Dix maintained for a year that he wouldn’t take a position on the proposal by Kinder Morgan Inc., but announced his opposition on Monday because he doesn’t want Vancouver to become a major oil export port. Cummins characterized both the B.C. Liberals and NDP as big spenders, increasing debt and running deficit during their shared 20-year history in government. Cummins said he would abandon the quasi-privatization of BC Ferries and bring it back under direct government control. Sterk’s strongest moment was when she backed Dix’s call to

reinstate independent research into which prescription drugs should be covered by Pharmacare.

10 Surrey/North Delta Leader Tuesday, April 30, 2013

Ridings in focus: DELTA-NORTH by Rick Kupchuk Both the B.C. New Democrats and B.C. Liber-

als have had success in Delta-North. The Liberals won in 1996 and 2001 with current Surrey school board trustee Reni Masi, but a pair of former Delta councillors represented the riding in Victoria before and after. Norm Lortie held the seat until Masi’s first victory, and after the Liberal MLA stepped aside in 2009, Guy Gentner won a pair of elections. He earned roughly 50 per cent of the vote in 2009. A pair of current Delta councillors will be seeking to replace Gentner, who did not seek the nomination this year. Tsawwassen resident and former elementary school teacher Sylvia Bishop will look to defend the seat for the New Democrats. Four-term councillor and 26-year North Delta resident Scott Hamilton will carry the Liberal banner on May 14. Conservative candidate Tinku Parmar earned a master’s degree in English while living in her native India, before moving to Canada in 1998. Bill Marshall is running under the Green Party banner.

And independent John Shavluk rounds out the race in Delta-North. One of the most affluent ridings in the South Fraser region, Delta-North also has one of the lowest percentages of divorced or separated people, roughly eight per cent as opposed to the provincial average of 11.6 per cent. It also has one of the highest percentages of residents under the age of 18. The constituency has the province’s lowest percentage of residents living alone, at roughly five per cent. North Delta residents are also among the most likely to own their own homes, as roughly 80 per cent reside in owneroccupied dwellings. According to 2006 census figures, Delta-North is home to the lowest percentage of residents who were not living in British Columbia a half-decade earlier. Its residents are also less likely to move, as roughly 60 per cent have lived in their present home for more than five years.

Delta-North fast facts: • 2006 population: 51,455 • 2011 Population: 53,945 • Increase: 4.8 per cent • Median age: 39.4 • Non-English mother tongue: 39% • Average income: $81,821

If you live within these boundaries, Delta-North is your riding.

partnership with the Surrey Poverty Reduction Coalition and the Surrey Homelessness and Housing Task Force, invites the public to an All-Candidates’ World Cafe on Wednesday, May 1 at the Surrey City Centre Library, room #120. The event runs from 7-8:30 p.m. This all-candidates’ meeting will be held in a World Cafe model which has each candidate respond to questions in smaller groups of participants, allowing for conversation and oneon-one interaction. The audience will be seated at tables of eight to 10 and candidates will circulate between all tables to answer questions about the issues of poverty and its impact on individuals and families in Surrey, as well as on the community as a whole. Table facilitators will moderate the discussion at each table.

 3. What are the most significant issues facing your riding and what would you do about them?  Traffic and transportation. B.C. Liberal government has started a plan to replace the Massey Tunnel, and is committed to an interchange on 72nd

3. What are the most significant issues facing your riding and what would you do about them? People on the doorstep are telling me they want change for the better. They see their neighbourhoods congested with traffic. The threat of land development around Burns Bog is a concern. Air quality impacts of railcars shipping coal through the area is

troubling. With Adrian Dix and the NDP team I would work toward a regional transportation plan and the strengthening of environmental assessments. 4. What are the most significant issues facing B.C. and what would you do about them? People are tired of negative political attack ads. Adrian Dix and the NDP are committed to bringing a message of positive change.

 People are concerned about jobs, health care and public education. Training for better jobs will be addressed by creating a $100 million grants program for post-secondary students. Better healthcare for families will be achieved by improving community based services. Our K-12 schools will see increased resources for public education to reduce class sizes and improve class composition.

Metro could offload some parks to cities Review underway to explore municipal partnerships in order to cut costs

Metro’s role at some parks, saying it makes little sense for regional district and municipal parks crews to work in close proximity. Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts said Surrey crews could probably easily take over the maintenance of Tynehead Regional Park in the midst of her city. In some parts of North Vancouver, where regional, provincial and municipal parks abut each other, three separate sets of workers and managers are responsible. “It just doesn’t make sense to have three different land agen-

cies monitoring the same trail within 300 metres,” North Vancouver District Mayor Richard Walton said at an April 18 Metro committee. Also to be probed is why Metro still runs regional parks like Sumas Mountain and Matsqui Trail in the Abbotsford area, even though that city is in the separate Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD). “They’re grown up now, they’re a big city,” Delta Mayor Lois Jackson said of Abbotsford. “I wonder if the same reasoning applies now.”

Parks: t c Barry e l E Barry Elect More land sought

From page 12

Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie also questioned whether Metro’s responsibility for regional parks east of its borders also leaves it on the hook for buying more parkland there. Directors suggested the FVRD might take on the Metro parks there. Metro needs to either find more revenue or cut costs to free up millions of dollars it estimates are needed to upgrade aging facilities and infrastructure at existing parks, as well as bankroll an ambitious program of acquiring more parkland. Regional planners want to add 5,500 hectares of land to the park system at an estimated cost of $1.1 bllion over 30 years. Tremendous investment is also needed to make the proposed Experience the Fraser trail network a reality instead of mainly a plan on paper. Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan said he wants a “real hard look” at the role Metro plays in running parks and whether it makes more sense for local cities to take them on. He noted Metro couldn’t afford to dredge Burnaby Lake Regional Park so his city had to cover the cost. “If you can’t service a park, you can’t invest in a park, why would you keep acquiring parks?” Corrigan asked. The review will examine the parks function’s relevance and look at potential different operating models. Parks deemed regionally or ecologically significant are unlikely to be offloaded. Corrigan was skeptical as to whether Metro staff will deliver “dispassionate” findings that might result in them losing jurisdiction over some parks. Metro has more than 14,500 hectares of parkland in 22 regional parks, five greenways, two ecological conservancy areas and four regional reserves. Lynn Headwaters, Belcarra, Pacific Spirit, Campbell Valley, Colony Farm and Surrey Bend are among the larger Metro regional parks.

Free smoke alarm drive extended Most homes have no working detector, and seniors are most at risk

by Jeff Nagel More sMoke alarms

are being handed out across B.C. as part of a campaign to reduce preventable deaths from house fires. It’s being spearheaded by the Fire Chiefs Association of B.C. and president and Surrey Fire Chief Len Garis says the free smoke detector giveaway is targeting the elderly, aboriginals and other low-income or vulnerable residents. “These folks are truly at risk and we have to be very diligent and mindful of that,” said Garis. “Working smoke alarms save lives.” Research led by Garis with the University of the Fraser Valley found 70 per cent of fires over the past five years happened in homes with no working smoke detector. He noted seniors make up nearly a third of B.C. residents who die in fires even though they comprise only 15 per cent of the population. “It’s extremely disturbing,” Garis said of the findings. The campaign, backed by the provincial and federal governments and corporate donors, has so far pulled together 11,500 smoke alarms that are being distributed by fire departments around

the province. Smoke alarm manufacturer Kidde Canada provided the initial 5,000 detectors and deep discounts on future purchases. The latest contribution came from Super Save Group, whose $20,000 bought another 4,000 Kidde alarms. Black Press is a campaign partner, donating advertising to promote fire safety. More information on the campaign can be found at www. fcabc.ca. While many homes have smoke detectors, Garis notes too few people check them regularly. All smoke detectors should be replaced after 10 years and batteries should be changed annually. Garis is also pushing the province to find ways to get more sprinkler systems into apartment buildings after a fire at a Langley apartment building killed an 80-year-old resident earlier this year. Residents of buildings with no sprinkler systems are much more likely to die in a fire. Garis said a five-year survey found 23.1 deaths per 1,000 fires in buildings without sprinklers in B.C., compared to 1.2 deaths per 1,000 in buildings with sprinklers.

dential apartment complexes are the sources of a large number of false fire alarms. And now owners of the buildings will have to perform the required repairs or pay up. Last Monday, Surrey council approved changes to the Surrey Fire Services Bylaw allowing firefighters to order remedies associated with false alarms. Those can include several factors, including poor placement of the alarms, to an infestation of silverfish bugs setting off the alarms.

Fire crews responding to the false alarm will now ask the owner to fix the problem. “The owner will be subject to additional cost recovery fees if they do not meet the order,” a report to council on Monday states. And if the owner is unwilling, or unable, to fix the problem, the city will do it at the owner’s expense. If the owner refuses to pay, it will be added to their property tax bill. City staff will bring forward the proposed bylaw changes in the coming month, after which the new enforcement will take effect.

Jays stop Chiefs, move back to .500 North Delta wins PBL game 4-0

by Rick Kupchuk

What Was to be a double header

Saturday afternoon became one game Sunday evening, but it was enough for the North Delta Blue Jays to get back to the .500 mark. The Jays blanked the Whalley Chiefs 4-0 at Whalley Stadium, improving to 3-3 (won-lost) on the season and jumping to eighth place in the B.C. Premier Baseball League standings. The Chiefs dropped to 1-8, despite getting a solid effort from starting pitcher Yuta Kikuzaki. The Sands Secondary student pitched all six innings, allowing just one earned run on three hits and a pair of walks while striking out six North Delta batters. Evan Rogers scored the lone earned run, leading off the fifth inning with a single then scoring on a hit by Brock Morgan. Two Chiefs errors led to three unearned runs by the visitors in the sixth. Ryan Braun got the win for the Blue Jays, earning the shutout while allowing just two hits. Braun, a Cloverdale resident, also had six strikeouts and didn’t give up a walk. Both teams were coming off a one-sided loss to the Langley Blaze, with the Blue Jays falling 16-1 at home Wednesday night at Mackie Park, while the Chiefs were blanked

9-0 Thursday in Langley. Whalley managed just three hits against three Langley pitchers, two of them singles by Tyler Ang off Blaze starter Mitchell Robinson. Robinson was credited with the win, throwing 5.2 innings with the Chiefs managed three hits and a pair of walks. A Cloverdale resident, he fanned 10 Whalley batters. Three Surrey residents were also the leaders for the Blaze at the plate. Robinson was two-for-two with three runs scores, while Nick Rutckyj and former North Delta Blue Jay Shoma Sasaki had two hits and a pair of runs each, with Rutckyj hitting a triple and driving in three runs. The Blaze hammered out 14 hits against North Delta. Langley twice scored five runs in an inning, the game ending on the 10-run mercy rule after the fifth inning. Langley had four batters with multiple-hit games, and their pitchers held the Blue Jays to just four singles. Both the Chiefs and blue Jays are at home tonight (Tuesday). North Delta will host the 7-5 Vancouver Cannons at 6 p.m. at Mackie Park, while Whalley is at home for a game with the Blaze at 7 p.m.

Parker sets new standards Second-year third-baseman Taylor Parker of Surrey went seven-for-seven and set two Felician College Golden Hawks single-season school records last Wednesday. The Golden Falcons swept a non-conference softball doubleheader from the host University of Bridgeport in Stratford, Connecticut, winning by scores of 7-6 and 10-9. Parker picked up seven hits in a twin-bill for the second time this season.

During Felician’s four-run rally in the top of the third inning of the first game, she sent a goahead two-run double to center field. The shot was Parker’s 54th base hit and 15th two-bagger of 2013, both breaking school standards. Felician College is in Rutherford, New Jersey.

Surrey trio celebrate Keystone win A trio of Surrey hockey players – and one assistant coach – are national champions after the junior ‘B’ Richmond Sockeyes captured the Keystone Cup this week in St. Malo, Man. The Sockeyes won the title with a 5-2 win Apr. 21 over the Saskatoon Royals and among those celebrating the team’s victory were forwards Jake Roder, Stephen Campbell and Dean Allison, as well as assistant coach Ron Paterson, a South Surrey businessman and former owner of the Surrey Eagles. “We had a lot of guys in our room, who in some cases have played together since minor hockey and a longtime friends,” said Sockeyes head coach Aaron Wilbur. “It was great to see them complete their junior hockey careers in such a way. It’s really cool.” In recent years, the Sockeyes have had strong connections to Surrey. When the team won the Keystone Cup in 2009, eight players – nearly a third of the team’s roster – hailed from Surrey, including Roder, who was a rookie on that squad.

Bandits use powerplay to upend Eagles Surrey loses opener at Western Canada Cup tournament in Nanaimo by Nick Greenizan Penalties hurt the Surrey Eagles Saturday, as the BC Hockey League champions opened the Crescent Point Energy Western Canada Cup with a 4-2 loss to the Brooks Bandits in Nanaimo. The Bandits, the top team from the Alberta Junior Hockey League, twice took advantage of Eagle penalties with power-play goals, and added a third goal on a penalty shot en route to the tournamentopening win. The Eagles, perhaps still riding the high of their Fred Page Cup championship earlier this month, had plenty of jump in the early stages of Saturday’s

game against Brooks, generating a few good scoring chances, but it was the Bandits who scored first.  Brooks made it 1-0 late in the period when, during a goalmouth scramble for a loose puck, Brandon Bruce fired the puck past Eagles’ netminder Michael Santaguida.  The second period is where the game got away from Surrey, in large part thanks to penalties.  With Colton Mackie in the penalty box for slashing, Brooks’ Mark Reners pounced on a rebound to extend the Albertans’ lead to 2-0. Then, just 1:28 later – this time with Demico Hannoun in the sin bin – the Ban-

dits scored again, this Cam Maclise – the time when R.J. Reed team’s leading scorer rifled a shot from the – scored on a penalty point that tipped off a shot; he had been Surrey stick and into awarded the shot the net.  after he was The hooked, Eagles while on a finally breakaway, got on the by Eagles’ board in defencethe third man Devon period – on Toews. a power Drew Best play of their scored in own – when the game’s Brady Shaw final minute Craig chipped a to make it rebound Wyzsomirski 4-2. past Brooks’ Heading goalie into the Michael tournament, Fredrick, Brooks was who made 40 saves in considered by many the win. the favourite to win it, Brooks regained its after a regular season three-goal cushion 10 in the Alberta Junior minutes later when Hockey League that
