Horrific collision claimed the lives of five members of same family

Driver dies after brain-tumour surgery Tracy Holmes & Sarah Massah Staff Reporter

A sixth person has died following the horrific crash that killed five members of one family in South Surrey last week. Daniel Gore, 46, died Sunday shortly after 1 p.m., one week after the crash at 176 Street and 32 Avenue that claimed the lives of Surrey residents Jessica Sachdeva, 3; Annish Sachdeva, 5; Pawandeep Arjot, 31;

Neelam Rani Dhingra, 47 and Vidya Wanti Sachdeva, 68. Richard Fowler, lawyer for the Langley man’s family, told Peace Arch News Monday that Gore died after undergoing surgery for a “non-malignant brain tumour.” Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said the condition was discovered in hospital, where Gore was initially listed in serious but stable condition following the April 28 crash.

Police had previously said indications were that a westbound van driven by a lone occupant had sped through a red light into the Sachdevas’ sedan, and that charges were likely. At the time of the collision, Gore was apparently en route to his job as a meatcutter at a Thrifty Foods in South Surrey – a job he had started just a week prior. Paquet told PAN officials are attempting to confirm whether Gore’s medical condition

was a contributing factor to the crash. He expects the investigation will take “at least several weeks,” but said it’s possible there will never be a definitive answer. “With the tragic twist of events yesterday, it is a possibility we have to face,” he said. “Our investigators never spoke with him.” Fowler said that from what he can gather, the tumour did play a role. › see page 3

Eagles on to nationals

Widdifield service

Chain of violence must stop: father

Nesters the best in west Nick Greenizan Staff Reporter

The Surrey Eagles are flying east. The BC Hockey League champions continued to roll through their junior ‘A’ competition on the weekend, adding a Western Canada Cup title to their already-long list of accomplishments. Surrey defeated the Alberta champion Brooks Bandits 4-1 Saturday in Nanaimo to capture the inaugural Crescent Point Energy Western Canada Cup. And while staff at South Surrey Arena will have to clear space on the wall for the team’s latest banner, they may want to hold off on the redecorating for a few weeks – one more pennant may yet be on the way. The Eagles now prepare for the RBC Cup, the five-team junior ‘A’ national championship tournament that begins May 11 in Summerside, P.E.I. “It’s huge. It’s pretty exciting winning anything… but it’s just another stepping stone for us,” said Eagles captain Brett Mulcahy after Saturday’s win, moments after being presented with the trophy. See story, page 39.

Close to 300 people packed the chapel at Victory Memorial Park Friday for a celebration of life for Craig Widdifield, the man gunned down in a Morgan Crossing parking lot April 24 in what police have called a “targeted, gang-associated killing.” While family and many friends filed into the chapel to a slide show of pictures of Widdifield, wife Teresa and their son, others Craig Widdifield gathered, too. gunned down Outside, police cars blocked entranceways to the parking lots and uniformed RCMP officers watched those arriving for the memorial, while sharp-eyed men in suits and ties stayed in the lobby during the event, evidently scanning the crowd and late arrivals for any sign of a potential disturbance of the gathering. › see page 2

Jim Widdifield (second from left) joins others as they release doves at his son’s service.

Police presence felt at service › from page 1 Many of those in the crowd were older members of the community with ties to Widdifield and his family; many others were young people of the same generation as Widdifield, who died at age 28. Most came to remember him as he was described by friends and family members: a “loving son, husband, father and brother,” noted for his humour, his storytelling and practical jokes, his keen interest in the world around him, and above all, his generosity. But in a short, sometimes tearful address to mourners, Widdifield’s father, Jim, had a specific message for those who may have been associates in what has been acknowledged as his son’s former gang-oriented lifestyle. “A huge piece of our lives has been torn away by a senseless act,” he said. “There’s a lot of anger and fear out there.” But Jim Widdifield appealed to those who had known his son not to act out of a desire for revenge, but to share any information they may have about his death with police. “Violence begets violence,” he said. “This chain of violence must stop now. We don’t want Craig’s death to stand for nothing or

have been in vain. Please honour Craig by not sullying his memory with more violence.” Underlining the message was a song written for the occasion by the elder Widdifield, who is known to many in the community as keyboardist for the Compound Blues Band. Sung by Calla Krause, with piano accompaniment by Barry Powell, its lyrics were a strong reiteration of his theme: “A piece of our hearts, a piece of our soul has gone with you, but you’re gone, gone, gone… this anger and this fear must stop, stop right now, before other lives are lost.” Many in the audience were tearful when Craig Widdifield’s wife, Teresa, spoke at the lectern clutching their young son. She recalled his “silliness, story-telling and jokes,” and spoke of a loss that was hard to accept. Pastor Jeff Renaud read a statement from Widdifield’s mother, Nadia. She recalled an easy-going young man with a fondness for practical jokes, who had managed to graduate high school without ever appearing to do any homework. “We lost him for a few years,” her statement said. “Then he met Teresa and we got him back again.”

Bus traveller swallows 66 cocaine-filled condoms

‘I’m sorry Canada,’ drug mule tells judge Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A man who is awaiting sentencing after admitting to swallowing 66 cocaine-filled condoms gave an emotional apology in Surrey Provincial Court Monday. Shaking and choking back sobs, Ricardo Vasquez told Judge James Sutherland he “didn’t have a choice” when he agreed to try and smuggle the drugs across the border. It was “something I didn’t want to do,” the Mexican man said from the prisoner’s dock. “I embarrassed myself with what I did. I didn’t have a choice. I just want to say I’m sorry. I’m sorry, Canada.” Vasquez, 35, pleaded guilty Jan. 30 to importing cocaine. He has been in custody since Sept.

7, after border guards at the Pacific Highway crossing in South Surrey became suspicious of information provided by Vasquez, who was a passenger on a northbound bus. In March, the court heard how Vasquez had told the officers he was travelling from Chicago, Ill. to Whistler to see a friend. Then, Vasquez changed his story, explaining he was travelling from Guadalajara and that he had said Chicago because he thought it would make it easier to enter the country. Suspicions were further raised because he had two cellphones, one of which had a text message that suggested a plan to import drugs. Vasquez admitted to swallowing 20 pellets, then excreted 66 over the course of three days. The crime was motivated by a personal debt

Vasquez had incurred as a result of medical bills for his young son, the court heard. The sentencing hearing was adjourned so lawyers could research whether Sutherland should give weight to parole eligibility in deciding a penalty, given Vasquez’s lack of status in Canada. “The Crown’s position is that the… short answer is no,” federal prosecutor James Whiting said Monday. Vasquez’s lawyer, Evi dos Santos, disagreed, arguing his client’s lack of access to parole should be a mitigating factor. If Vasquez qualifies for early parole, he has nowhere to go, dos Santos said. “It’s a bigger chunk of time here he will stay in custody under immigration laws because

of his status,” he said. “He’s in limbo. He’s not even admitted to Canada.” Whiting and dos Santos disagreed on how Vasquez’s time in custody should be applied to the sentence, with dos Santos arguing he should be credited for time served at 1½. Dos Santos described his client’s crime as “an act of desperation.” “Desperate people, they make very stupid decisions,” he said, noting Vasquez has “paid a large price” for his. “He thought he was helping his family. He (now) doesn’t know where his wife is, he doesn’t know how his son is.” Whiting noted that there is “absolutely no evidence” that proves Vasquez’s son was ill at the time of the crime.

Assailant fled on foot

Woman attacked near suite A young woman suffered minor injuries following a sexual assault outside of a home in Panorama Heights Thursday. Mounties were called to a basement suite in the 16600-block of 63B Avenue at 10:30 a.m., following the sexual assault of a 20-year old woman who was attacked while leaving the residence. The victim fought off her attacker, who fled on foot in an unknown direction. The woman was taken to hospital and treated for her injuries. Police are asking for help locating a man described as a six-foot-two Caucasian in his late 20s to early 30s, with a thin build, long, light brown curly hair – described as greasy and dirty – with a scruffy beard and brown eyes. According to RCMP, the man had a thin face with a large nose and yellow teeth, including a gold filling on the bottom left. He was wearing light-coloured jeans, a black hoody, a dirty red baseball cap that was worn on the rim and muddy white sneakers. Police note the man had a large scar on his left eyebrow. Anyone with information is asked to contact RCMP at 604-599-0502.


› from page 1 “We may never know for certain, but people who know him well describe him as a careful driver. By all accounts (he) wasn’t late for work, he had breakfast with his son before driving to work that day. “He had plenty of time to get to work. It would have been so out of the ordinary for him to be driving like that – speeding or going through a red light like that. “People described him as a very nice man, a careful driver and somebody who is going to be missed.” Paquet said he is hopeful the investigation can bring the two families some closure.

White Rock artist Don Dutkowski received a cheque for $7,500 last month, purportedly from a woman interested in buying three of his paintings.

Police advise caution in online transactions

Artist warns others of ‘overpayment’ Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

When the cheque for $7,500 arrived, White Rock artist Don Dutkowski admits he was briefly tempted to cash it. “I almost felt like rushing to a bank and taking a chance on it,” he said. Instead – knowing the draft was bogus – Dutkowski went to police. “If it warns one poor soul, it’s worth it,” the senior said of his decision to share the story of how the sketchy pay-off arrived in his mailbox. Const. Janelle Shoihet confirmed police believe Dutkowski was targeted by a ‘money transfer’ or ‘Nigerian money scam.’ He is not alone in the experience, she added, nor has he been the only one to recognize the con. “We have had a number of letters and emails turned over from people whom have not been victims because they realized it looks too good to be true,” Shoihet said. For Dutkowski, it all started on March 20, when he received an email from someone asking if three paintings she’d seen on his website were still available for purchase. The message, requesting an urgent reply, came “within hours” of Dutkowski noticing his website was getting hits from Nigeria.

Vehicle located after Craig Widdifield murder

Suspect car recovered Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Police investigating the South Surrey shooting death of 28-yearold Craig Widdifield said this week a suspect vehicle was recovered a “couple of days” after the murder. But there have still been no arrests in connection with the “merciless” killing. Sgt. Jennifer Pound, spokesperson for the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, told Peace Arch News by email Thursday that a silver/grey vehicle – described earlier as a Volkswagen Passat – was located with help from the public, seized and “remains within IHIT’s possession.” “There is a common ground within communities around the

Lower Mainland to ensure the public is safe,” Pound wrote in response to questions from PAN. “This show of vigilance and persistence in assisting police locate this vehicle proves just that.” Pound would not disclose exactly when or where the vehicle was located, citing the ongoing investigation. Widdifield was killed just before 7 p.m. April 24, in the parking lot of Morgan Crossing shopping centre. While a similar shooting occurred five days later in Maple Ridge, Pound said there is no indication the two incidents are linked. “There is nothing to suggest, at this time, that the Ridge Meadows shooting was connected to the recent Surrey shooting,”

Pound wrote. Claude Deguire, a 26-year-old Maple Ridge resident, died April 29 after he was shot in the parking lot of a grocery store in that city just before 8 p.m. Police have described both Deguire’s and Widdifield’s deaths as targeted. Two men arrested in connection with Deguire’s death were released without charges Tuesday. The day after Widdifield was killed, police announced that they believed those responsible fled the scene in a Jeep Cherokee and got into a silver or grey Volkswagen Passat near 28 Avenue and 165 Street. Rumours that Widdifield had been wearing a bullet-proof vest at the time he was shot are unfounded, Pound said.

Man hospitalized after two-car crash A White Rock man was taken to hospital for neck pain Thursday afternoon following a twocar collision at 24 Avenue and 160 Street in South Surrey. The crash occurred just before 4 p.m., sending a black Honda CRX into a traffic sign and off the road at the intersection’s southeast corner. The rear bumper of the second car, a blue Honda Civic, landed on the sidewalk nearby. Police say the CRX was eastbound on 24 Avenue when it struck the southbound Civic in the intersection. “Witnesses at the scene indicate (the CRX) went through a red light,” Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said Friday. Three occupants of the Civic – all of them White Rock residents and one of them a two-year-old girl – were not injured, Paquet said.

Separating the good candidates from the bad


andidates in next week’s provincial election who are committed to connecting with voters this election campaign are knocking on doors. Lots of them. And at the doorstep, it’s easy to sort out the candidates who are committed to their riding and those who are in the race just for a comfy chair in Victoria or helicopter rides to a cabinet table. Simply put, good candidates know their riding. Good candidates won’t speak in generalities, telling you about the need to replace aging school infrastructure or that health-care wait lists are unacceptable. They won’t talk about the need for more rapid transit or debate the future of the carbon tax. They also won’t speak of the need to boost our forestry and mining industries to ensure B.C. continues to enjoy the confidence of investors. All are important issues, sure. But let the leaders sort that out. Voters who really care how many dollars will be invested in this program or that program are free to study platforms of the parties, most of which lay this out on websites and campaign literature. Besides, party leaders are trumpeting these facts throughout the campaign, which is dutifully followed by hordes of news media. Local candidates who deserve support are ones who talk about issues facing constituents in Surrey’s three south-end ridings – Surrey-White Rock, Surrey-Panorama and Surrey-Cloverdale. When asked about education on the doorstep, good candidates will talk about how existing schools will be upgraded – and new ones built – to keep up with the need in fast-growing neighbourhoods like Clayton Heights in Cloverdale and Grandview in South Surrey. When asked about health care, they’ll talk about the need to continue improvements at Peace Arch Hospital and the White Rock South Surrey Hospice Society. When asked about transit, they’ll talk about ways to best expand service in Surrey – be it by rail, SkyTrain or more buses. Some candidates running May 14 know their stuff because they care about their community. Others aren’t near as familiar with their potential constituents and what they can do to help them. Listen closely. Read campaign literature. And consider what kind of politician you’d like to represent your neighbourhood.

certification. This isn’t just a bad idea, it’s a 30-year-old bad idea. It’s based on the destructive old notion that employers are the enemy of workers, and only a union can protect them. The long decline of union membership in the private sector isn’t caused by employer bullying or secret-ballot votes that protect employees’ freedom of choice. The cause is global competition. The only protection workers have from that is their own efficiency. Balancing the budget? An NDP government will strive to do that over “the business cycle,” says finance critic Bruce Ralston. Old-timers might remember this one. It’s taken from the NDP’s 1991 election platform. Yes, 22 years ago there was a widespread belief in a predictable fouryear cycle of commodity prices and other economic determinants. Whatever was left of that dusty, faded picture was erased with the financial collapse of 2008. If you still believe in a predictable “business cycle,” you may be willing to accept that an NDP-led B.C. will become the first jurisdiction in human history to eliminate poverty, by setting annual targets and paying out borrowed money to low-income parents. On ferries, fracking, union contracts, capital construction and other weighty matters, the NDP’s answer is the same: trust us.

It is about time someone with a scientific background exposed the myths about global warming. Peace Arch News, please look for opportunities to include news that supports the truths Christoffersen presented so well in his letter to the editor – that C02 is not a pollutant but is essential to life on earth, that earth climate is always changing, that we rely, economically, upon use and export of our natural resources, that climate change is not cause for alarm. The media must be objective and responsible reporters, not propagandists for a particular viewpoint. Barbara MacPhee, White Rock

Baby-boomers need their care Editor: The word Alzheimer’s for some is a shameful word. There is that much of a stigma around the word and the disease it represents. The Alzheimer Society of BC’s recent campaign, Jim’s Push for a Plan, helped bring this disease out of the shadows and highlight the 70,000-plus British Columbians already diagnosed and living with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia. Yes you read correctly: more than 70,000 people are already diagnosed, and there are many, many more not yet diagnosed. Is this province ready for the baby-boom bubble and the resulting increase in numbers of people with a dementia? I don’t know about you, but I’m

very concerned. And that’s why, in this pre-election period the society and I are asking candidates where they stand on a dementia plan – a plan that includes support for family caregivers, programs that help with early diagnosis and training for healthcare workers.

I am writing to protest the proposed building of a 12-storey highrise on Vidal Street. When we moved to White Rock, we understood that there was a town centre, and the west boundary of this area was Martin Street. Beyond this street, no highrises. Now, it appears that a 12-storey highrise can be built anywhere the builder pleases. This is a quiet residential street

with limited parking. There is little parking, only on one side of the street. A 12-storey highrise does not belong here at all. If this project goes ahead, I can assure you, the people in this building and other buildings in this area will think twice before voting for this present mayor and council in the next civic election. M. Olson, White Rock n In the time I have been a resident of White Rock – about five years – there seems to have been a great deal of discussion about how to help White Rock develop, while safeguarding those qualities that most residents value. It was my understanding that the official community plan was developed in order to achieve that goal, and yet I am frequently reading about the consideration of yet another “exception” to the plan. If every development proposal ends up being lobbied for and discussed at a meeting by a very small representation of the community, why have an OCP at all? Elected council members need to have the courage and conviction to stick with the decision that was made. E.R. Phillpotts, White Rock

Child centres share goal Editor: Re: Childcare fails today’s families, April 30 letters. I feel compelled to address CFUW White Rock/Surrey president Susan Wingate’s letter to the editor. I do not feel that childcare has failed today’s families. If anything, society, and the rising cost of living has. Why is it that costs of goods and services go up, yet wages don’t? In today’s economic fail, both parents must work to provide for their families. Childcare providers are necessary to assist families, and work with them to care for their children. I am in communication with many childcare providers in the area, and I feel that we all have one common goal. To give the best care and attention possible to the children in our area. I have recently opened up a childcare facility in South Surrey, Learning Lighthouse Child Care. My centre has an integrated preschool program, plus an organized, yet flexible, daily schedule. This is to accommodate and support parent’s needs for their

Rights, wrongs and finding justice Editor: Re: Perhaps revive death sentence, April 30 letters. I have to take issue with the letter regarding bringing back the death penalty, as the writer is making baseless statements perhaps to hide his real intention, and that is to add vengeance or revenge to our justice system. To state that the death penalty is a deterrent does not work for those bent on murdering, the murderers are not thinking of getting caught in the first place. As for the terrorists, it seems in many cases that they plan on dying anyway. During 2010 in the United States, almost 13,000 murders were committed. The rate of murders in states with the death penalty is actually higher than those without it. The exact numbers can be found on many reputable websites. If you look at the list of countries that still use the death penalty, you will find most are not what you

consider states where human rights are at the top of their agenda. I personally would not want Canada to be in that club. And to say that today’s laws favour the criminal over ordinary citizens is just not true. The laws – rights of people – are there to protect everyone, even the accused. It’s just that ordinary citizen don’t need to exercise those rights unless accused of something. Please check your facts before you rant. Matt Logan, Surrey n I agree with the letter writer who suggests that Canada should re-instate the death penalty for terrorists. Anyone found guilty of a terrorist act should get the same “justice” that roughly 3000 people got on 9-11, namely none. Take them out and shoot them. Better still, behead them. That’s what the Taliban would do. Jim Armstrong, Surrey

Senior Surrey Six cop quits force LUNCH Kevin Diakiw Black Press

A senior Mountie in the “Surrey Six” slaying case has quit the force, just as the RCMP was looking for a way to fire him. Former RCMP Sgt. Derek Brassington is facing allegations of minor theft and inappropriate relations with a witness in the case. A total of 20 charges have been laid against RCMP officers Brassington, David Attew, Paul Johnston, and Danny Michaud, who were all involved in the investigation into a North Surrey mass murder, in which six people were killed in a Whalley highrise in October 2007. Two of the six killed were

innocent bystanders: 22-yearold Chris Mohan from Surrey and Ed Schellenberg, 55, of Abbotsford. Earlier this year, the province’s Criminal Justice Branch publicly announced that special prosecutor Christopher Considine had been appointed to look into allegations of an inappropriate relationship between an officer involved in the investigation and a potential witness. Brassington and Attew each face charges of breach of trust, obstruction of justice, and fraud, while Johnston and Michaud face charges of breach of trust and obstruction of justice. The special prosecutor has also approved a charge of theft under

$5,000 against Brassington. “This morning Mr. Brassington’s discharge documents were received and signed by the commanding officer,” Chief Supt. Brian Cantera said in a news release on Thursday. The RCMP was seeking a way to fire Brassington, Cantera said, but then his voluntary dismissal was received. “Mr. Brassington’s career with the RCMP has ended,” Cantera said. “As a private citizen he will no longer be subject to any disciplinary actions under the RCMP Act and we will not be commenting further about his employment.” Brassington still faces the criminal charges.

Several people have been charged in relation to that crime. In April 2009, Dennis Karbovanec, then 27, was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 15 years after pleading guilty to three counts of second-degree murder and one count of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder. James Bacon is charged with one count of first-degree murder and one count of conspiracy to commit murder in the case, while Cody Rae Haevischer and Matthew Johnson are each charged with six counts of firstdegree murder and one count of conspiracy.

Strike vote at schools The union representing approximately 3,840 school support workers in Surrey, including clerical workers, education assistants and caretakers, has voted 87 per cent in favour of striking. Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) local 728 held its vote last weekend and joins more than a dozen locals representing thousands of employees provincewide who have also authorized strike action. The union argues bargaining talks with the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association have broken down because the employer is standing by the provincial government’s net-zero mandate and is unwilling to negotiate a wage increase – which school CUPE workers haven’t had since 2009. Provincial bargaining began last November on behalf of 27,000 education support workers provincewide. CUPE will plan its next steps in the coming weeks.

Police target King George Surrey Mounties are lighting up King George Boulevard this month in an effort to reduce the number of crashes along the busy corridor. Officers with Surrey RCMP Traffic Services and the Fraser Valley Integrated Road Safety Unit (IRSU) will conduct multiple enforcement projects, targeting aggressive, distracted and impaired drivers, along with pedestrian infractions. “We hope this increased vigilance of drivers and pedestrians alike will assist us in reducing the number of collisions on this busy strip of roadway,” Sgt. Gary Clarke said in a statement May 2. “The warmer weather and longer days usually see a rise in accidents, so we are taking a proactive approach in order to remind all drivers and pedestrians to be extra careful.” Last year in May, police responded to 33 collisions on the thoroughfare, some involving serious injuries.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Owner Jennifer Maxwell humbled by outpouring of support

Final credits roll for Hillcrest Video store Nick Greenizan


Staff Reporter

ennifer Maxwell grew up in love with the movies. As a youngster growing up in South Surrey, she began renting videos from her local Video Stop, and by her early teens she had become such a regular visitor to the store that the owners promised her a job when she was old enough. At 18, she took them up on the offer. Save for a two-year stint as a travel agent, it’s an industry she’s been in ever since, first working for Rogers Video before landing, in 2000, at Hillcrest Video, a small, independent video store in uptown White Rock, tucked in among a few other businesses on the southwest corner of Johnston Road and Thrift Avenue. Eight years later, she bought the place. And now, five years after that, she has closed it down. “It’s sad, but I could see it coming. This isn’t a ❝It’s sad, but surprise,” she said I could see it coming. This isn't last week, standing a surprise❞ outside the now-empty building with a “For Rent” sign in the window. “And I’m proud we were able to last as long as we did. People saw the other places closing down – Rogers and Blockbuster – and said, ‘you’re next,’ but we held on for a few years, thanks to our customers.” The final credits officially rolled on Hillcrest Video April 27. It was, Maxwell said, the last independent video story in White Rock and Surrey. Prior to closing, many of the 6,100 DVDs the store stocked were sold, while the rest are now in Maxwell’s White Rock home. “I did a count before I took these ones, and I already had 7,300 movies in my house. Now I have a lot more,” said Maxwell, who moved to the Peninsula in the mid1980s and attended White Rock

Hillcrest Video owner Jennifer Maxwell stands outside the long-running store on the corner of Johnston Road and Thrift Avenue. Junior High. “I am a movie buff. I always have been.” In addition to an extensive collection of movies, Maxwell said she’ll also take with her many memories. A few bad – like the time in 2009 she was held up at knifepoint by the same man twice in a 10-day span – but mostly good. “I’m really going to miss the customers, and the people in the neighbourhood,” she said. “Some people I’d see every week, and others every day, even – people who would be out walking their

dog would always pop their heads in to say ‘hello.’” It wasn’t just customers who felt a connection to the store, she pointed out. Her two employees – Dave Gronotte and Natalie Sabourin – had worked there for a number of years, and Gronotte’s family once owned the store. Maxwell chalks up the store’s waning business to two things – one being the way people now watch movies, which more and more is through on-demand services such as Netflix, and two, the changing neighbourhood. While she still had plenty of

regulars, many of them seniors, the development in uptown White Rock has brought a younger population who are more apt to download a movie without leaving their home. “Nothing stays the same forever,” she said, standing in the shadow of the Miramar Village towers, and across the street from another in-progress condo development. “This isn’t the city I grew up in.” Still, she’s humbled by the outpouring of support she’s received since announcing she was closing Hillcrest’s doors. “I didn’t make a big

announcement, really. I only told about 10 people,” she said. “And still, I’ve had so many people leave cards, or flowers or gift cards, or notes… it’s left me without words. “I mean, I’m just a clerk in a video store. And it’s only been a few days, but I miss it already.” Maxwell hopes to take some time off before delving into her next endeavour, which she said may be culinary school. “I’ve always loved to cook, and it’s a trade that will never die,” she said. “People gotta eat.”

Your candidates, in their own words One week from today, voters across B.C. will head to the polls to have their say in electing the next provincial government. Here on the Semiahmoo Peninsula, candidates in the three local ridings – Surrey-White Rock, Surrey-Cloverdale and Surrey-Panorama – are on a final push to win the votes

of the community. While there is no shortage of issues that are important to Peninsula residents, Peace Arch News has given local candidates the opportunity to introduce themselves to readers, share their thoughts on what issues are most significant to them – both locally and across the province

– and explain the approach they would take in addressing those issues. Each candidate was asked the same set of questions and allotted a 300-word maximum with which to respond. Here – over the next three pages – is what your local provincial election candidates had to say:

B.C. votes

Surrey-Cloverdale Riding fast facts: • • • • • •

2006 population: 50,540 2011 population: 73,570 Increase: 45.6 per cent Median age: 36.8 Non-English mother tongue: 24% Average income: $68,033

Since its creation for the 1991 provincial

We asked Surrey-Cloverdale candidates:

1. What is your name, age, education and neighbourhood of residence?

BC LIBERALS 1. Stephanie Cadieux, 40, studied marketing and personal finance, resident of SurreyCloverdale. 2. People in Cloverdale are concerned about the economy, specifically their job security or small business, STEPHANIE health and their CADIEUX ability to support their families. They want a representative in government who is committed to job creation, keeping taxes low and reducing red tape. Following that, we need creativity and strong management to ensure that crucial public services and infrastructure keep pace with our rapid growth as a city. Cloverdale also has so many young families, it follows that there is a growing need for skills training especially in the trades to take advantage of our growing economy. 3. Global economic uncertainty is still a major concern. I think that here in B.C. we have done a good job at weathering the storm but stable government and living within our means is essential to maintain our position. We have to build on our strategic advantages as the Pacific Gateway to grow our economy so that we can continue to fund local investments in services like health care, education and transportation. 4. I have been proud to spend the last four years in government helping to build a strong economy, balance our budget and make crucial investments in new schools and hospitals. I have a demonstrated passion for people and community service. I believe that we find solutions to the complex challenges we face in life and in government when we employ three things – innovation, co-operation and common sense.

election – carved out of the old SurreyCloverdale-White Rock constituency – Surrey-Cloverdale has been a Liberal stronghold. In the last election, Kevin Falcon won with 62.7 per cent of the vote. The largest electoral district in B.C., Surrey-Cloverdale is also the fastest growing, due in large part to the rapid pace of development in Clayton Heights. It is grouped with other Surrey constituencies

May 14, 2013

as an area where people are least likely to walk or bike to work, or to live alone. While the provincial average is a little more than 65 per cent, single-family homes account for close to 80 per cent of all Cloverdale households.

2. What are the most significant issues facing 3. What are the most significant issues facing your riding and what would you do about B.C. and what would you do about them? them? 4. Why should people vote for you?

BC NDP 1. Harry Kooner, 38, I’ve lived in SurreyCloverdale for close to 20 years. I attended college in Punjab. I’ve also attended the UBC Sauder School of Business, and the Justice Institute of B.C. 2. With two school-age HARRY children in Cloverdale, KOONER I’ve witnessed the challenges of oversized classrooms, inadequate funding and an overall shortage of schools. 3. We have a high population of seniors and young families in the province, therefore affordability is a major issue. The BC NDP is committed to finding solutions to make life more affordable for both families and seniors. 4. My work experience in legal services with the City of Surrey will allow me to bridge the gap between municipal and provincial government. I am passionate about education, community safety and protection of the environment. I have volunteered with the Surrey RCMP, community policing, crime prevention, auto theft and speed watch programs.

BC CONSERVATIVES Editor’s note: Howard Wu did not return his questionnaire by Peace Arch News’ deadline. The following information was gleaned from the BC Conservative party’s website. HOWARD Canadian by choice, WU Howard was born in San Francisco and spent time growing up between Taiwan and California before he moved to Canada in 2004. Howard has been in the technology industry for more than two decades, having done numerous mergers and acquisitions between China, the U.S. and Canada. Howard’s latest business success was founding a cloud computing software company in 2009 and selling it in 2010, having one of the fastest exits in Canadian history while creating more jobs in B.C. An active international speaker in the media, Howard wants to bring business common sense back to government. Howard holds two BAs from Furman University in Political Science and Asian studies as well as an EMBA from Simon Fraser University. Howard is also active in his church FCNABC as a deacon and has two children with his wife, Clara. In his spare time, Howard enjoys basketball, hiking, running, travelling and reading.

INDEPENDENT 1. Matt Begley, 32; Some college; 60 Avenue and 166 Street. 2. • Tankers: No tankers in the current Tanker Exclusion Zone. • TransLink: Form a proactive committee to disband TransLink and remove the two tolls.


3. • Drinking water quantification: We have three million in a rainforest and Mexico City has 20 million in the desert. Water consumption wasn’t metered when I grew up and shouldn’t be now. Abolish water meters in our rainforest before we have a Quantum of Solace scenario. • Tankers: same as above. • TransLink: same as above. • Strata councils: Form a proactive committee to look into possible conflict of interest, if any, and corrective measures. • Waste segregation: Advocate mandatory recycling receptacles on the street and places we eat before they start carbon taxing us. • Contractor fraud: Apparently most who built the Olympic Village did not get paid. One is owed over $60 million after the developer declared bankruptcy. This is still legal to this day, nothing has changed, I say nothing was learned. Establish a Fraud Squad for the construction industry to find subpar contractors and developers alongside building inspectors. Change the penalty from civil court and debt collectors to prison to protect both the home owner and honest contractors. 4. Many people believe the job of a politician ends with the vote. It doesn’t. They need to champion issues, raise awareness, and form proactive committees. I will do so.

skews slightly older than most throughout the province, with seniors representing 24 per cent of residents, compared to the B.C. average of less than 16. While there are many families in the riding, nearly 16 per cent of residents live alone. The riding – which saw its boundaries tweaked in 2008 as part of a provincial electoral-boundary redistribution – is more affluent than many, with an average

household income about $9,000 higher than the provincial average. The riding is also primarily English speaking, with just 22 per cent of residents not speaking that language as their mother tongue, which is the lowest in Surrey.



We asked Surrey-White Rock candidates:

1. What is your name, age, education and neighbourhood of residence?

BC LIBERALS 1. Gordon Hogg, 66; MA in psychology; White Rock. 2. Rapid population growth in this area requires us to ensure our GORDON local services HOGG and facilities are able to meet the demands created by this growth. These demands are especially felt in the Peace Arch Hospital and at Earl Marriott Secondary School. For these services and facilities to meet changing demands requires a more co-ordinated effort between every level of government and our community. I would continue following the same principles that have led to Surrey-White Rock being one of the first communities in B.C. to participate in the GP For Me program, which helps residents access a family doctor. Another program I am proud of is the Centre for Active Living, which, together as a community, we have created as a provincial model for healthy living. 3. My top priority for the province is to improve co-ordination and collaboration between decision makers and the local recipients of services, with a specific focus on education and health care. In the case of health care, I will continue promoting the idea that health care is about quality of life and not just a service. 4. Surrey-White Rock is not just a place of being; it’s a state of being. It’s a connectedness that the residents of this community share, and I’m so honoured to help make it strong and safe, now and into the future. I’ve been fortunate to work and volunteer in a community that I have lived in all my life. This is a community of not only family and friends; it’s a community of heart, spirit and caring. I’ve been a foster parent, little league coach, city councillor, mayor and most recently your representative in Victoria. I would be honoured and privileged to continue working with the people of our community as MLA.

2. What are the most significant issues facing 3. What are the most significant issues facing your riding and what would you do about B.C. and what would you do about them? them? 4. Why should people vote for you?

BC NDP 1. Susan Keeping BC NDP candidate for Surrey-White Rock. Age: 57. Education: Studied at Simon Fraser University – non-profit management.


2. • Democracy: An NDP government will end union and corporate donations to political parties, and bring in legislation to ensure that all government advertising is reviewed and approved by the Auditor General. • Education: I’ve spoken with parents of students at Earl Marriott Secondary School. New Democrats are committed to improving classroom conditions. An NDP government will work to provide students with the support they need by hiring new teachers and teaching assistants, librarians and councillors. • Health care: Voters in SurreyWhite Rock talk to me about our hospital not being able to maintain cleanliness. Lack of nursing staff is forcing patients to leave without proper home-care support and medical follow-up. New Democrats will take the pressure off the hospitals by expanding home support and community care for seniors and people with disabilities. We need to improve service levels and standards of care in residential care facilities. An NDP government will also improve front-line mental health services and expand our low cost prescription drug program. 3. Environment: New Democrats are committed to fighting climate change within a strong economy. An NDP government will oppose the Northern Gateway Pipeline and bring in a strong, made-inB.C. environmental review that does not surrender our decision making to Ottawa. We’ll also invest part of the carbon tax in improving transit. 4. As your representative in Victoria I will work energetically on behalf of everyone in the community – business and labour, retired folks and young families and their children. I will work to meet our needs through practical change, one step at a time.

BC CONSERVATIVES Editor’s note: Elizabeth Pagtakhan did not return her questionnaire by Peace Arch News’ deadline. The following information was gleaned from the BC ELIZABETH Conservative PAGTAKHAN party’s website. Elizabeth immigrated to Canada from the Philippines in 1977 with her family. Elizabeth and her husband of 42 years, Antonio, have two sons, a daughter-in-law, and a granddaughter. She obtained her degree in political science at the University of British Columbia as a part-time student in 2004. She also studied at the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia in 2005. Elizabeth has owned a business catering to seniors for over 25 years. She is currently a real estate professional with Sutton Group West Coast and also a mortgage broker with VERICO Clear Trust Mortgages. Elizabeth has developed leadership skills with her community involvement and the church. She volunteers and supports many non-profit organizations such as the Covenant House, the UBC Alumni Educational Fund, the Multicultural Helping House Society, the Canadian Medical Mission Society and the Canadian Cancer Society. She has volunteered in numerous municipal, provincial and federal elections and was on the organizing committee for the 2008 Conservative National Convention. She was a Conservative candidate in the 2006 federal election.

BC GREENS 1. Don Pitcairn, 51; university; Crescent Heights, South Surrey. 2. Increasing U.S. coal train traffic through White DON Rock and PITCAIRN South Surrey. Raise public awareness about health and environmental issues plus attempt to stop coal port expansion including at the Surrey Fraser Docks. Overcrowding at Earl Marriott School needs to be addressed by putting money into building much-needed schools. Over half a billion bucks spent on renovating BC Place would have built lots of schools in Surrey. We need to focus on real health care, not “sick care,” focusing on keeping members of our society healthy instead of attempting to treat disease related to lifestyle and diet. 3. Having a truly open and honest government that works for the people of B.C. instead of their special interest financial contributors would be a refreshing change from what we are used to. Dealing with our massive debt that has been steadily increasing under the NDP and Liberals needs to be addressed by greening up the economy and breaking the fossil fuel cycle that threatens our coast with multiple planned pipelines and increased oil tanker traffic. Without communitycentered economic growth, servicing our debt will take more and more of taxpayer money, leaving B.C. with less funds to pay for health care and education. 4. Unlike the Liberals or NDP, the BC Green Party expects their candidates to represent their constituents first and the party second, with plenty of free votes in the legislature. People here need to ask where our MLA was during the BC Rail sale, HST debacle, BC Hydro smart meters and Basi/ Virk $6 million lawyer payoff? My community activism focusing on public safety and environmental issues in the nearly three years I’ve written “The Naked Truth” column is posted online for people to read in the electronic pages of the White Rock Sun.

BC PARTY 1. My name is Jim Laurence and I am running in the South Surrey/ White Rock riding for the BC Party. I am 58 years old, attended George Brown JIM College and LAURENCE Queens University. I have lived in South Surrey for the past 23 years. 2. The biggest issues facing South Surrey are high taxes and inefficient government spending. High taxes are hurting families and businesses and wasteful government spending is not providing a fair return for our hard-earned tax dollars. We need to reduce the tax burden we are placing on individuals and businesses and create accountability for politicians, holding them responsible for the management of province’s financial well being. 3. The most significant issue facing British Columbians is our deficit and fostering a fiscally sustainable future. We need to reign in irresponsible government spending and create an economic environment that promotes job creation through entrepreneurship and free enterprise. 4. Having raised a family and run a business, I understand the struggles facing British Columbians in today’s difficult economy. I will stand up for low taxes, fiscal responsibility, and promoting economic growth.

election 2013

B.C. votes

Surrey-Panorama Riding fast facts: • 2011 population: 68,995 • 2006 population: 51,670 • Increase: 33.5 per cent • Median age: 37.9 • Non-English mother tongue: 40% • Average income: $67,675 Surrey-Panorama is a family-oriented

We asked Surrey-Panorama candidates: 1. What is your name, age, education and neighbourhood of residence?

BC LIBERALS 1. Marvin Hunt, 61, bachelor degree. I have worked in SurreyPanorama for 34 years and lived in the riding for 27 years. MARVIN Currently, I live HUNT in Fleetwood. 2. The top three local issues are jobs, education and transportation. In partnership with Simon Fraser University, Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Fraser Health Authority and others, we can build research and innovation centres to create the jobs of the future. But students south of the Fraser must first have more school construction and greater access to our universities. TransLink must be restructured with directors who are elected and accountable and given the power to raise the necessary resources. 3. Provincially, the economy is the top priority. We must work at attracting more jobs to this province while keeping the size of government in check. The new B.C. Liberals have a plan to build the economy. Then we will have the needed resources to spend on health care and education. 4. I have had the awesome privilege of serving the citizens of Surrey as a city councillor for 22 years. During those years, we have kept taxes low while attracting thousands of jobs to our city. In fact, Surrey has the lowest residential taxes and the second lowest business taxes in Metro Vancouver. During this global downturn, I want to use my experience in Surrey to help the province keep taxes low while attracting current and future jobs to this province. I want to take the spirit of co-operation that we have on Surrey council to Victoria to find creative solutions for the challenges we face.

community. Only six other constituencies have fewer residents living alone, and only seven have more people living in owneroccupied dwellings. A fast-growing area, it is also the riding in which people are the least likely to walk or bike to work. One-third of Surrey-Panorama residents are immigrants. Most newcomers are from India and are living in a riding where 40

per cent of the population does not speak English as a first language. BC Liberal Stephanie Cadieux is the current MLA, winning 54.3 per cent of the vote in 2009. This election, Cadieux is running in neighbouring Surrey-Cloverdale.

2. What are the most significant issues facing 3. What are the most significant issues facing your riding and what would you do about B.C. and what would you do about them? them? 4. Why should people vote for you?



1. Amrik, Mahil, 55 years old. Education: civil engineering, Hatfield University and Cranfield Institute of AMRIK Technology. MAHIL I currently reside in the Surrey-Panorama riding, in the Panorama neighbourhood. I have lived in Surrey for 28 years.

1. Kevin Rakhra, 28 years old, presently completing two bachelors of technology in forensic investigation; associate of arts degree; KEVIN advanced RAKHRA specialty certificates in forensic investigation; certificate in incident command; RCMP Tier 1 training.

2. I am very concerned about the state of education in Surrey – primary, secondary and post-secondary. The lack of physical spaces for education to take place in and class size and availability of classes is far lower than the needs of this growing community. Almost every public school has mobile classrooms and teacher resources are spread too thin. Post-secondary space is also lacking. Kwantlen and Surrey SFU have space to grow their programs, however no financial backing. Trades training opportunities are also scarce. I support Adrian Dix’s plan to create a $100-million grant program so students can have greater access to education and skills training.

2. The two primary areas of concern are the economy and public safety. We must have a true free enterprise government to address our lack of economic development. By allowing expansion of our natural resources and opening up B.C. to other markets we can address our concerns. Also we need to ensure budgets are transparent and by having an audit of expenditures we can see where finances of hard-working taxpayers are being misused. Secondly, the four bodies found in Surrey-Panorama on Colebrook Road is of great concern. There are clearly problems that must be addressed before the situation grows even worse.

3. The opportunity for young families is the issue that touches me the most. I know I was not able to find employment in my chosen area of study; however I was able to make a living and raise a family as a middle-class Canadian. It is becoming harder for families now. With fewer opportunities to earn solid income and the higher costs of housing, food, child and senior care are creating a greater inequality gap in all areas of B.C. 4. I understand small/medium business needs and pressures, as well as the pressures of raising a family. I live in the heart of the riding and converse with neighbours daily, listening to their struggles and successes. With experience being a spokesperson and chair of the Vancouver Taxi Association, I am able to communicate and find resolution to key issues on the behalf of others. I believe in integrity, sincerity and honesty.

3. We must address our deficiencies in many sectors, from the stagnant economy, to accessible heath care, to the revolving door of justice. But none of this can be done unless we have the fiscal capacity; that is why accountability and transparency are of the utmost importance. 4. I have been a dedicated volunteer in my community for more than seven years, serving in law enforcement at a federal, provincial and municipal level to ensure public safety is maintained. I have been a volunteer auxiliary constable with the RCMP for seven years. My commitment to serving others and ensuring we have a better future is why people should vote for me. I have accomplished a great deal at 28 years of age and I wish to do even more. If elected I vow to bring transparency to the legislature. By electing me, we can take the first step to help grow our economy, address our social needs and bring positive growth to Surrey-Panorama.

BC GREENS 1. Sara Sharma born on July 4, 1963. 2. Residents are asking for a balanced budget and more efficient government. Voters are SARA frustrated SHARMA with the government’s misuse of resources (ethnic vote scandal) and lack of coherent environmental policies. We have a great province, it is not just a province or corporation, it is a province of people, young, old, rich and poor, and we all deserve to have our voice heard. 3. Today’s political climate is changing from local and national concerns to global ones. This of course doesn’t mean we’re no longer interested in our neighbourhoods, but we are increasingly taking the larger picture into account. We want our children and grandchildren to live well in a secure environment. For this we need to think globally. The Green party is the only political organization that really addresses this. We need to be aware of the impact we have on the environment, but we also need to be cognizant of the effect the environment has on us. I do care about the future of my child, I care about the future of my community and I deeply care about the future of our species. I pledge to educate myself about the issues, I pledge to educate you about the issues and I pledge to work to resolve the issues. 4. I am an entrepreneur, real estate agent and the owner of a group daycare centre. I am a great listener; raising children, owning my own business and marketing properties for living, I think, shows I have what it takes to run for political office. I have volunteered at PAC and minor hockey league. I am a conservative Green and as your MLA I would promote job creation, a tax shift to longterm needs and not just short term Band-Aids, and improve transportation and education.

Staff from Peace Arch Hospital, seen in Vancouver before the 2011 riot, are heading on a volunteer mission to South Africa later this month.

Hospital staff South Africa-bound

On mission to help A bevy of volunteers from the Semiahmoo Peninsula – including Peace Arch Hospital staff lauded earlier this year for assistance they provided during the June 2011 Stanley Cup riots – are heading to one of the world’s 10 most polluted areas this month in the hopes of making a difference. Catherine Mastine, a nurse who calls South Surrey home, said she is among 16 people leaving for the Zambian province of Kabwe on May 16, as part of a South & West Africa Mission (SWAM) trip led by White Rock physician, Dr. Lourens Perold. With the help of donations and fundraising, they’re taking a cache of prenatal and children’s vitamins with them, along with medical supplies, Mastine said. The group will be working at Kabwe Hospital for a week, then will split into two, with one group staying in Kabwe and the

other heading to smaller, rural areas of Namibia to follow-up on work done during previous visits. For Mastine, the trip is a first, and she expects it will include medicalrelated tasks along with helping with under-construction housing. Perold, who was born in South Africa and helped form the Christian-based SWAM, has been making similar trips since at least 2005. SWAM works in Namibia, Angola and South Africa to address hunger and crime, and work with churches there to create a visible symbol of hope and love. Mastine said fundraising for the May 16 trip has wrapped up, however, anyone wishing to donate unopened bottles of prenatal and children’s vitamins for Kabwe may still do so at Peace Arch Hospital. - Tracy Holmes

Input sought The BC SPCA is seeking public input about animal issues facing B.C. as it begins a strategic-planning process to guide its programs and services from 2014 to 2018. An online public survey went live on Wednesday, at spca. The animal welfare organization provides services for abused, injured, neglected and homeless animals throughout the province, including cruelty investigations, emergency rescue, sheltering and adoption of homeless animals, humane education programs for youth, wildlife rehabilitation, advocacy, improving standards of care for farm animals and spay/neuter programs to reduce pet overpopulation. “We were able to accomplish incredible steps forward for animals in our province during the last fiveyear strategic plan and we’re very excited about building on this success,” chief executive officer Craig Daniell said in a statement. “As we move forward, it is very important that we hear from our supporters, our staff and volunteers, community leaders, veterinarians and members of the public about their priorities for animals in our province.” Daniell noted that the overwhelming number of animal issues in B.C. creates a challenge for the donor-supported organization as it decides how best to use its resources to create more humane communities. The survey is available online through May 31.

Parties at odds over logging-export strategy Tom Fletcher Black Press

The B.C. Liberals and NDP agree on one thing when it comes to B.C.’s vast forest resource: marketing B.C. wood to Asian markets remains a high priority. Their bitterest disagreement is over log exports, although neither party offers a clear strategy as the May 14 election approaches. The NDP election platform blasts the BC Liberals for presiding over a doubling of log exports to 5.7 million cubic metres between 2009 and 2012, with “no plan to curtail the flow. “We will work with stakeholders to reduce raw log exports and create more valueadded forestry jobs in British Columbia,” says the NDP platform, repeating its 2009 campaign pledge. The BC Liberals tout their success selling lumber to China and Hong Kong, whose share of B.C. lumber exports has grown from 6.6 per cent

File photo

Political parties seeking voter support during the upcoming provincial election want to export more lumber and fewer logs. in 2006 to 32.6 per cent in 2011. The BC Liberals say their marketing partnership with Ottawa and the forest industry has sold enough lumber to keep 16 mills operating. “Banning exports of unprocessed logs won’t solve timber access issues for mills, especially coastal ones,” the BC Liberal platform says. “Our preference is to have logs milled here at home, but log exports are a key component to growing our coastal

forest economy and keeping people employed in British Columbia.” The Coastal Forest Products Association argues that each highgrade log sold abroad supports harvest of two more logs that go to domestic sawmills. Platform highlights: • The BC Liberals propose to increase the budget for planting and silviculture in pine beetle-affected forests by $10 million a year, starting in 2015. The party

promises to consult with communities and industry to make a transition from volume-based harvest licences to area-based tenures, a plan that was withdrawn from the legislature amid criticism earlier this year. • The BC NDP promises a $100 million investment over five years to double the number of seedlings planted and update forest inventories. The party has revived a proposal for a “jobs protection commissioner” to help adapt to reduced timber supply due to pine beetle damage. • The BC Conservatives propose to review Crown forest land tenures and “where appropriate, modify or change forms of tenure to ensure wealth and employment generation.” The party also wants to increase research, reforestation and marketing of forest exports abroad, but offers no specific plans or budget

commitments. • The BC Green party proposes to offer low-interest start-up loans “to encourage small, labour-intensive

Metro Vancouver proposes mandatory licensing for garbage haulers

Critics denounce waste policy Jeff Nagel Black Press

Opponents of a Metro Vancouver plan to keep waste from being hauled to the Fraser Valley said Thursday the regional district’s real agenda is to ensure it can feed a new garbage incinerator. Several recycling and waste-hauling firms denounced Metro’s proposed waste-flow regulation, saying it would unfairly disrupt their business and block innovation. Metro wants to license garbage haulers and ensure they only take trash to Metroapproved facilities. That would bottle up waste within Metro and ensure those dumping it pay the steep tipping fees that support Metro programs and abide by local bans against dumping recyclables. The region’s planners worry that if regulations aren’t imposed now, a trickle of waste now flowing east to Abbotsford will turn into a flood and millions of dollars in tipping fees will be lost.

Waste incineration opponents hold signs as Metro directors listen to delegations. But Ralph McRae, CEO of Northwest Waste Solutions, told Metro waste committee members the planned rules are mainly geared to ensure a second incinerator is built. His firm is building a $30-million material recovery facility (MRF) in south Vancouver that will be able to sort 300,000 tonnes of waste per year when it

opens in July. He says Metro’s rules will block the MRF from processing garbage from multi-family residential buildings and businesses to extract recyclables from the waste stream. The multi-family building recycling rate is just 16 per cent and McRae contends his advanced system can divert 80 to 90 per cent of paper, plastics, organics and other material apartment dwellers toss out as trash. “Rather than sending it to the landfill or incinerator we want to cleanse it of recyclable material first,” he said. “We want to have a shot at taking that 80 or 90 per cent out.” Metro has been firm that only sourceseparated recycling by residents is OK, he said, not after-the-fact processing of their garbage. McRae said he knows why Metro won’t let him to do what he wants. “They need to trap the high-calorie › see page 35

‘It isn’t waste until we give up on it’ Cheer on your Green Fighter! › from page 34 content material in the waste stream,” he said. “The stuff I want to take out – the paper, the plastics, the wood products – that is the stuff that they need to have the incinerator operate efficiently. It won’t just burn rocks.” Exclude the combustible materials, he said, and an incinerator will run less efficiently, with more toxic ash, if it can be justified at all. “That basically undermines and kills their incinerator so they’ve tried to stop me.” Metro also expects to jack garbage tipping fees to between $150 and $200 per tonne from around $107 now in order to pay for the new $500-million waste-to-energy plant. At such astronomical prices, McRae said, waste is sure to flow out of the region at a much faster rate. The new incinerator can only be built, he said, if Metro imposes the waste-flow

regulations to force residents and businesses to pay the high premium for in-region disposal. Lawyer Geoff Plant, speaking for Green Coast Rubbish Inc., told the committee Metro cannot legally enforce sourceseparation and should allow the automated sorting of garbage at advanced plants. But some speakers were split on what’s the best solution for the environment. Harvest Power CEO Paul Sellew, whose firm runs a foodwaste composting plant in Richmond, disputed whether McRae’s automated sorting plant will be able to effectively extract organic material from garbage without the resulting compost being too contaminated for agricultural or horticultural use. “You’ll have glass, you’ll have batteries. You’ll have other things in there that will prevent those materials from being marketed,” Sellew said.

Grant Hankins of BFI Canada Inc. also opposed the waste flow rules, saying they will only drive up costs to customers and squelch the growth in green jobs in the Lower Mainland. Doug Mass of Maple Leaf Disposal said letting recycling firms extract more material before sending garbage to disposal only makes sense. “It isn’t waste until we give up on it,” he said. Delta Mayor Lois Jackson said it’s not surprising private firms want a bigger slice of the lucrative waste business in the region but said Metro must look out for taxpayers first. “Who does that garbage really belong to? It belongs to the people putting it out at the curb.” Vancouver Coun. Andrea Reimer said the out-of-region waste-flow issue is important because “if garbage is going missing, it becomes impossible to divert it.”

Plastic glut grows as China restricts recyclables Jeff Nagel Black Press

About five to seven per cent of recyclables that arrive at Urban Impact must be landfilled as “residual” because it’s too contaminated to be recycled, Stefenelli said. She hopes the residual rate doesn’t rise as China becomes more selective and said everyone involved in recycling must strive to improve the quality of what goes out. Multi-Material BC has been criticized by Metro Vancouver mayors for proposing glass containers not be collected at curbside in the blue box but instead be taken to depots, to reduce glass contamination of other recyclables. Stefenelli said excluding glass from the blue box would improve quality and increase the odds of more material actually being recycled. “That is an example to me of somebody trying to take a stand and make sure materials are

MMBC spokesman Allen Langdon said the new agency will have larger economies of scale, giving it an advantage in finding markets for materials. “We think there’s more opportunities for recycled content to be used domestically,” he said.

Plastics and some other recyclables are piling up at recycling operations in Metro Vancouver as a result of China’s recent move to apply tighter import restrictions to weed out contaminated material. Industry observers so far see no sign of more plastics or paper that would normally be recycled going to the landfill or Metro’s incinerator, but they agree that could happen. “I don’t think we’re at that point yet,” Urban Impact CEO Nicole Stefenelli said. “But they are obviously limiting the loads that go into the Chinese market.” China’s Green Fence policy puts arriving cargo containers there under closer inspection and rejected loads – such as paper contaminated with glass or plastics with too much food residue – are shipped back to the recycler at their own cost. Stefenelli said her recycling firm hasn’t yet had any containers rejected but the more rigorous inspections and extra steps to improve quality before a load is shipped have caused a backlog of some materials, particularly plastics. The glut of material isn’t just a waste of space, it also raises

Surrey and some other cities moved to single-stream recycling in recent years – all recyclables are thrown jumbled in the same blue box and highly automated machines do most of the sorting.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Gee Willikers, Space

Diamond In The Rock

Fans of retro-futuristic kitsch – and sharp, original comedic musical theatre – have a limited opportunity to see the premiere of Rock Theatre Co.’s Gee Willikers, Space, which runs at Vancouver’s Renegade Studios, 125 E. 2 Ave. until May 11 (8 p.m. shows daily, 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Saturday). Familiar faces to White Rock and South Surrey audiences will be Colin Lane as sidekick Squelch and Mike Balser (of Fraser Valley Gilbert & Sullivan Society fame) as a space traveller’s roadie. Written by Toni Maggio (of Toronto’s Third Kid Productions) and White Rock Players Club board member Kate Stadel, who also directed, with music by Jane Milliken, the satirical and intentionally goofy space-opera follows the exploits of two teams of interstellar explorers (one from Earth and the other from the planet Zifroidia) in search of scarce Magnorious (“the most utilized element since highfructose corn syrup”). Tickets ($20) are available at the door, or online at www.

The annual Diamond In The Rock Youth Talent Search is back at South Surrey’s Roadhouse Grille until May 29 – giving local music fans a chance to catch some future stars-in-the-making. The weekly competition – highlighting Peninsula musical performers under the age of 19 – continues each Wednesday, 7-9 p.m. at the restaurant, 1781 King George Blvd. The contest offers prizes, merchandise and help with career development to contestants who make it through to the final round, and are chosen to perform at the concluding concert, Sunday, June 9 at White Rock’s Blue Frog Studios, 1328 Johnston Rd. For information, email contest organizer Dennis Peterson at or visit Diamond In The Rock’s Facebook page.

Lucy Wang Semiahmoo Strings concert master Lucy Wang will present a violin recital Wednesday, May 8 at 7 p.m. in the Pyatt Recital Hall at the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra School of Music, 843 Seymour St., Vancouver. The demanding program, accompanied by pianists Kathy Bjorseth and Libby Yu, includes Prokofiev’s Second Violin Concerto, Brahms’ D Minor Sonata, Ravel’s Tzigane, Bach’s Chaconne and Paganini’s Caprice Op. 1, No. 5. Admission is free and no reservations are necessary.

Chamber music White Rock Chamber Music will present its last program of the season May 11, 7:30 p.m. at Crescent Gardens Retirement Residence, 1222 King George Blvd (beside the Best Western Hotel.) Harpist Miya Otake will perform solo and with her Westcoast Harp Ensemble. A graduate of the Royal Academy of Music in London, she has played all over the world, including Carnegie Hall in New York. Operatic singer Silvano Gestaldo, who emigrated from Italy to Canada in 1962, has performed with a wide variety of Lower Mainland groups, including the Handel Society, the B.C Italian Choir and the Italian Folk Choir. Violinist Jannie Chien has served as co-concertmaster with the Semiahmoo Strings, with whom she has studied for 12 years. The evening will feature performances by three young pianists from the White RockSouth Surrey area. Suggested admission (by donation) is $5 and everyone is

Members of the Surrey Eagles pile onto goaltender Michael Santaguida Saturday night in Nanaimo, after the team’s 4-1 win over Brooks earned them a berth in the RBC Cup.

Surrey defeats Brooks to capture Western Canada title

Eagles soar into Royal Bank Cup Nick Greenizan


Sports Reporter

he Surrey Eagles’ trophy collection continues to grow, and just one more – the RBC Cup – remains left in their aim. The Eagles, already winners of the BC Hockey League’s Cliff McNabb, Ron Boileau Memorial Trophy and Fred Page Cup – for winning the Coastal Conference, regular-season title and playoff title, respectively – added a fourth piece of silverware Saturday, beating the Brooks Bandits 4-1 in Nanaimo to claim top spot at the Crescent Point Energy Western Canada Cup. The victory also earned Surrey a berth in the upcoming RBC Cup national championships, May 11-19 in Summerside, P.E.I. “At the beginning of the season, if you asked me if we would have won, it wouldn’t have crossed my mind,” said Demico Hannoun, who was named Surrey’s player-ofthe-game. “But it’s a great feeling right now.” The win over Brooks – the Alberta Junior Hockey League champions – avenged a roundrobin loss a week earlier, when the

Bandits jumped out to an early lead en route to a 4-2 win. This time around, the Eagles were the aggressors in the game’s early stages, taking a 1-0 lead midway through the first period when rookie defenceman Jordan Klimek skated the puck into the slot and beat Brooks’ netminder Michael Fredrick with a hard wrist shot. “We came into this game with a vengeance,” said forward Trevor Cameron. “We wanted to come in and lay it to them. We had a hot start and scored a couple of early goals and then we just never stopped.” In the second period, the Eagles extended the lead to 3-0 after a power-play goal from Drew Best – who finished off a play that started deep in the defensive zone with a long stretch pass from goaltender Michael Santaguida to Brady Shaw – and another marker from Demico Hannoun, who scored his first goal of the tournament. In the third period, blue-liner Craig Wyszomirski made it 4-0 when his shot from the left point deflected off a Bandits’ stick and found the back of the net. “It was a fantastic pass from

Chico (Hannoun)… I just put everything I had into it.” Cam Maclise, the Bandits’ leading scorer, added a late goal for the Albertans. Santaguida, though denied his sixth post-season shutout thanks to Maclise’s third-period tally, stopped 40 shots in the game. “Mikey made the saves when he had to. He wasn’t overly tested for the first 30 minutes – our defence did a good job moving the puck up the ice quick, and we had a good game plan to neutralize their forecheck,” said Eagles coach Matt Erhart. “We were really strong all night… it was a great win.” A day after losing to Surrey, Brooks defeated the Yorkton Terriers to claim the second and final western berth in the RBC Cup. And while getting the victory Saturday – thus saving themselves from a do-or-die game against Yorkton Sunday – was a nice bonus for the Birds, Erhart insisted after Saturday’s win that it wasn’t the most important thing. “(Qualifying) any way would’ve been fine, you just want to get in,” he said.

A year later, the Eagles won the Nanaimo-hosted Royal Bank Cup, with a roster that included Erhart on defence. “It’s a fun week for the organization, but our goal is to win the RBC. That’s been our goal since we started the playoffs, and this is just another step,” Erhart said. In addition to the Eagles and Bandits, representing the west, other teams at the RBC will be the Truro Bearcats, Minnesota Wilderness and host Summerside Western Capitals. File photo

Devon Toews was named MVP of the Western Canada Cup.

“We’re excited to go and we didn’t care how we got there. We just wanted to continue to get better as the week went on, and I thought we played our best game tonight.” The trip to the RBC Cup is the third in franchise history for the Eagles, who made back-toback trips to nationals in 1997 and ’98. In a strange twist, the ’97 tournament – in which the Eagles lost in the finals to the Summerside Western Capitals – was also held in Summerside.

Western awards On Friday, prior to the final two days of competition, Surrey Eagles defenceman Devon Toews – who had six assists in five games – was named the Western Canada Cup MVP, while Santaguida was named the tournament’s top goaltender.

Surrey blue-liner dons Maple Leaf Rick Kupchuk Black Press

Surrey native Brenden Dillon is playing for Canada at the World Hockey Championships in Stockholm, Sweden and Helsinki, Finland. The tournament began Friday and runs until May 19. The Dallas Stars defenceman was among a group of 22 players named to the team late last month by Hockey Canada. “We have a received a great response from the players that we have approached, and we are very pleased with the roster that we have assembled to date,” said national men’s team executive director Steve Yzerman. “We look forward to getting together as a team in Stockholm and preparing for the world championship.” Dillon began the season with the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League, playing at the minor league level in

Cedar Park, Texas while the NHL was shut down due to a lockout. He played 37 games with Texas, scoring three times and adding 11 assists to go with 72 penalty minutes, before he was

called up by the Dallas Stars when the NHL lockout was lifted in January. One of just four Stars to play all 48 games in the NHL regular season, the six-foot-three, 228-pound defenceman totalled three goals and eight points, while earning 65 minutes in penalties. Signed as a free agent by the Dallas Stars following his final season of junior hockey with the Seattle Thunderbirds of the Western Hockey League, Dillon played 10 games with the AHL’s Stars at the end of the 2010-11 season, then was with the team for the full 76-game season a year ago. He netted six goals and added 23 assists. Canada began the World Championship tournament Saturday in Stockholm, facing off against Denmark. They played Switzerland on Sunday. Dillon is one of five players on the Canadian roster to have never played in an international event.

Defenceman commits to Selkirk College North Delta Devils defenceman Tanner Lenting has committed to playing for the Selkirk College Saints of the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League next season. Lenting, 20, scored five goals and 27 points in 43 games during his second season with the Devils. He played 83 games in the Pacific International Hockey League while in North Delta, collecting 13 goals, 54 points and 70 penalty minutes. He also earned an assist in four games

with the BC Hockey League’s Surrey Eagles this past season, and played in nine playoff games during a playoff run that saw the Eagles win a Fred Page Cup. “Tanner is a smart and reliable blueliner with good size who also has the skill to contribute on offense and on the powerplay,” said Saints head coach Jeff Dubois. “He was a leader and a key player in North Delta this season, and he’s also been gaining some great experience with the Surrey

Eagles during their very successful playoff run. He brings all the ingredients to be a successful athlete at the college level.” Lenting will join a number of fellow Saints recruits in Selkirk’s Business Administration program. “I chose Selkirk College based on their winning hockey program and from having heard nothing but good things about the experience from my friends on the team,” said Lenting.

Personal Life Insurance is less expensive and more flexible than mortgage insurance! Leslie & Rick

surance obtained through a bank, While most agree it makes sense to cover large debts with insurance, some argue when it comes to mortgages, most consumers treat it as an afterthought and don't realize that buying through a bank can be a costly mistake. With mortgage insurance obtained from a bank, coverage decreases with every mortgage payment but the premiums show no corresponding decline. That means the costs [per $1,000 of coverage] actually goes up as they bring down their mortgage debt. Personal life insurance coverage remains fixed throughout the term.

balance, only the bank gets paid. In contrast, life insurance will relieve that debt, while often leaving something over for loved ones. Life insurance is also "portable," you don't need to requalify for coverage during the term if you buy a new home and switch mortgage providers. By contrast, those who purchase mortgage insurance through a bank would likely need to requalify with the new financial institution. Going apples for apples, life insurance owned personally is less expensive, and has more flexibility for the consumer. That's why people really need to go to a professional to see how the insurance fits into their overall plan.”

Berna Jewel McMaster Berna, late of White Rock, passed away peacefully on April 29, 2013 during her 90th year after a lengthy courageous struggle with cerebral ataxia. She will be greatly missed by her husband Jim, daughter Stacey, grandsons, Dylan, Jordan (Rie), Travis, and great-grandaughter Mei. She will also be remembered fondly by her many friends including the Redmond family. Berna was born in Regina and moved to Vancouver at an early age. She grew up in Kerrisdale and attended Magee High School. Berna and Jim were high school sweethearts and with the exception of Jim’s time in the RCAF, they have been together ever since. Berna loved playing bridge and traveling. She and Jim went on many cruises and as well enjoyed vacations in Palm Desert. Berna was an avid knitter and made many baby items for friends and for the Peach Arch Hospital Axillary. Heartfelt thanks to the doctors, nurses and staff at Crescent Gardens for their compassionate care and kindness. Berna’s enthusiasm and zest for life were infectious. She was filled with love and compassion for everyone whom she encountered. She had the ability to bring out the very best in people. She was an exceptional wife, mother, grandmother and friend. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity of your choice. Family will attend a celebration of Berna’s life at a later date. Berna was a precious jewel who will live on in our hearts and be greatly missed; forever remembered. Condolences may be offered at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre 604-536-6522
