Oil transport: Kinder Morgan aims to avoid homes

Pipeline to take all-new route from Surrey to Burnaby


by Jeff Nagel KINDER MORGAN Canada plans to

stake out an almost all-new corridor for its second oil pipeline from Port Kells in Surrey to Burnaby to avoid digging through private property in densely populated neighGreg Toth bourhoods. Greg Toth, senior project director of the Trans Mountain pipeline twinning, said following the existing right-of-way – as the company intends on most of the rest of the route through the Fraser Valley and the Interior – would be too disrup-

“We’re trying to align the pipeline in those preexisting corridors.”

The six new Pattullo Bridge replacement options all come with tolls.

New crossing could offer a more direct Surrey-Coquitlam link by Jeff Nagel A NEW SURREY-COQUITLAM bridge bypass-

ing New Westminster is one of six recommended options TransLink has unveiled to replace the aging Pattullo Bridge that could profoundly change traffic patterns. They were released Monday as part of a new round of public consultation this month. And no matter which option is chosen, TransLink’s review of them suggests the replacement span will be tolled. “Costs of $1 billion would be recoverable through user fees,” the report says, while adding a crossing costing more than that would need senior government contribu-

tions as well. The most unusual option studied was a possible new four-lane Tree Island crossing well downstream of the Queensborough Bridge. It would have offered a more direct Delta-Burnaby connection that would have taken traffic from the Alex Fraser Bridge in a near straight line over the Fraser’s north arm, instead of splitting either left to Richmond or right to Queensborough. But TransLink’s screening review found it wouldn’t serve the existing Surrey-New Westminster traffic and Burnaby and Richmond fear more agricultural and industrial land would be lost. It would act more as an alternative to the

Queensborough Bridge than the Pattullo, the review said, but most motorists won’t pay the tolls to cover the $825-million cost of a bridge there if the Queensborough is free. Two of them don’t call for a new bridge at all, but rehabilitating the existing Pattullo for safer three- or four-lane use at a cost of $330 to $400 million, still funded by tolls. Both would improve seismic and structural safety but risks of head-on crashes would continue as there’d be no median barrier either in the three-lane counterflow or four-lane configuration. An all-new bridge near the existing one – either four, five or six lanes – would betSee PATTULLO / Page 5

Police to seek charges in rodeo attack

behind a racial-themed verbal attack near the Cloverdale Rodeo earlier this month and will be recommending charges of assault to Crown counsel. The Langley woman does not have a previous criminal record, but approached an animal rights protestor at 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 18, shouting racial slurs at her. The protestor had been holding a sign that read, “Rodeo... where coward boys have fun.” The Langley woman took offence to the sign and began shouting at the Woman filmed protestor, who started filming at rodeo. the episode for 47 seconds. The woman made reference to colour of the protestor’s skin. “I like the colour you are because it comes out of my a--,” she says in the video. “Yeah, I am f---ing racist, I am. I will blow your country up...” The protestor filmed the attack and posted it to “I was protesting the cloverdale rodeo may 18/13 and this lady did not like my sign,” she wrote below her video. “She called me racist names, spat on my face, then grabbed me by my hair punched me and kicked me.”

Got unwanted guns? Police want you to turn them in Provincial Gun Amnesty Program runs throughout June by Kevin Diakiw Police across B.C. are collecting firearms during the annual Gun Amnesty. The program is designed to get unwanted guns out of B.C. homes, making them safer for everyone and reducing the chance they will fall into the wrong hands due to theft. “Unwanted weapons consistently represent a potential hazard,” says Surrey RCMP Cpl.

Bert Paquet. “Too often we have seen the devastating consequences of firearms not properly stored or falling into the wrong hands.” The program will run throughout the month of June, when residents of Delta and Surrey will be able to safely dispose of unwanted weapons and ammunition that have not been used in a criminal offence. They will not face weapons-related Criminal Code charges as a result. Anyone who possesses guns, ammunition and weapons, even imitation and pellet weapons, along with pepper spray and knives, are being asked to phone local police on the non-emergency line (Delta Police are at 604-946-4411 and the Surrey RCMP are at 604-599-0502).

Then, uniformed police officers will attend the caller’s residence to retrieve the weapons. Do not bring the firearm to the door, and don’t attempt to bring it to the police station.

What should you tell the operator when you call?

• Describe the items as best you can. Many firearms are marked with the make, model, serial number and caliber. • Be clear about any ammunition that you may have, especially if anything could be considered explosive. For further information on the B.C. Gun Amnesty visit

go to the province – you would take that back to the community and talk to the community about it,” Stewart said. It’s one of the first suggestions from the ranks of pipeline opponents that a sufficiently attractive offer could trump environmental worries. “I’m against this project. But I think you always have to keep your mind open when you’re looking at economics and then go back to your community with particular offers.” Stewart said he didn’t pick the $2.50 figure – he says it arose through conversations with his constituents, who are seeking a series of commitments from Kinder Morgan, including assurances that no homes will be expropriated, that temporary foreign workers won’t build the pipeline and that no construction will begin without local referenda. Stewart noted he’s not in any position to negotiate, adding reelected Premier Christy Clark will have to decide what price is fair. “This is where this conversation is heading – how much does Kinder Morgan have to pay to put this pipeline through

communities.” Ben West, a ForestEthics campaigner opposed to transport of bitumen from the Alberta oil sands, said he was surprised by Stewart’s comments. “There is no amount of money that would make this a good idea,” West said. He said the environmental risk of a spill outweights any amount of financial compensation. West called the notion a “nonstarter” because he doubts Kinder Morgan would ever offer anywhere near $2.50 a barrel. Asked about the company’s plans to ensure Trans Mountain’s expansion benefits B.C., senior project director Greg Toth called B.C.’s demand for a fair share a “government-to-government” question. He said local and regional benefits will come from the jobs in building and operating the new pipeline. “We are looking at a community investment program at a local level,” Toth added. “What are the things we can do as part of the project to offset or mitigate the potential impacts of constructing the pipeline.”

What is TBI? TBI is an abbreviation for TraumaTIc BraIn Injury, a severe head injury that can cause life-altering physical and mental impairments. TBIs are caused by a jarring impact that results in the brain slamming into the interior of the skull. Motor vehicle accidents are a major cause of TBIs. Traumatic brain injuries may be accompanied by a number of wide-ranging symptoms. Some of these symptoms may not be apparent immediately following the impact that caused the injury, but most TBI victims will suffer from multiple symptoms that may include:

Pattullo: Public open houses held through June From page 1 ter resist a moderate quake, river scour or ship collision, all of which could knock the existing 75-year-old span out of service. Those three options range from $820 million for four lanes to $1.1 billion for six. An eight-lane option was ruled out as attracting too much traffic and running counter to goals to move more people by cycling, walking and transit. The five- and sixlane options may spur more auto-oriented development than four lanes, it said. A last option recommended for more study offers a new four-lane Surrey-Coquitlam bridge, while also rehabilitating the old Pattullo for two- or

New Westminster, going the farthest to address concern there about worsening congestion. “Travel times and reliability would improve for most users,” the report said. “Goods movement would likely benefit overall, given more direct connections to Highway 1, United Boulevard and the northeast sector.” TransLink’s review recommends against simply dismantling the current bridge or converting it to either a two-lane bridge or one for cyclists and pedestrians only. Doing so would cause much heavier truck congestion at other crossings, it said. Also panned were four-lane tunnel scenarios on the existing

tive to existing land owners. “We’re looking to municipal infrastructure, highways, railway lands and others that we can co-locate with,” Toth said in an interview Monday. “We’re trying to align the pipeline in those preexisting corridors.” Besides following local streets or utility corridors, the pipeline could be dug through municipal or regional parks and greenways, the company confirmed. A lengthy project description filed last week by Kinder Morgan sheds little new light on precisely what land would be dug up. A 150-metre wide corridor is to be unveiled for study purposes as part of Kinder Morgan’s formal application by the end of this year to federal regulators to build the new pipeline. Detailed engineering would later narrow the construction zone to a smaller area within an 18-metre right-of-way. Further 30-metre “safety zones” created on either side of the right-of-way would give the company a perpetual sign off on any land alterations. According to the new filing, the existing tank farm in Burnaby would be doubled to 26 tanks and one more tank would be added at Sumas. Toth said the expansion in Burnaby – more than tripling storage capacity to 5.6 million barrels of oil – is necessary to provide scheduling flexibility, as the company doesn’t control when tankers arrive. Burnaby-Douglas NDP MP Kennedy Stewart said the Burnaby tank farm expansion is a concern. “They’re all up on a hill,” Stewart said. “What if you had an earthquake? That’s the big one for me. In the Japanese earthquake a lot of the things blowing up were refineries and storage tanks.” Even if the pipeline right-of-way runs down alleys or municipal roads, he said, the 30-metre safety zones on either side could still lower property

values because homeowners may be constrained from installing a pool or making other improvements in their yard. The project would include replacing the existing tanker dock at Westridge Marine Terminal in Burnaby with two new docks that have three berths for tankers. Dredging may be needed as part of dock construction, the project description says. But officials say they have no plans to dredge the Second Narrows or to use bigger tankers than the ones already in use in the harbour today. Capacity of the line is currently 300,000 barrels a day, and Kinder Morgan’s second pipe would increase capacity to 890,000 barrels a day. The project description says the terminal currently handles an average of five tankers and three barges a month, with two barges outgoing with crude oil and one incoming with jet fuel. Shipments have varied widely in recent years depending on market demand. The expansion would boost the number of oil tanker shipments to as many as 400 per year. In operation since 1953, the Trans Mountain system extends 1,150 kilometres from Edmonton along Highway 16 through Jasper National Park, then southwest along Highway 5 to terminals at Kamloops, Sumas, and Burnaby. The original 24-inch line has been modified several times over the years, allowing it to transport refined fuels as refineries closed in Kamloops and the Lower Mainland in the 1980s and 1990s. The pipeline supplies crude oil to Chevron’s Burnaby refinery and the Westridge Marine Terminal, where since 1956 ships have carried crude to California, the U.S. Gulf Coast and Asia. A branch line from Sumas supplies refineries at Anacortes, Ferndale and Cherry Point in Washington state. – with files from Tom Fletcher

route ($2.9 to $4.8 billion) and four or six-lane bridge options at Sapperton Bar ($1.7 billion to $3.1 billion.) Spokesperson Patricia MacNeil said the

issue of tolling isn’t yet settled and TransLink wants public feedback on all studied options, not just the recommended ones, to see if “we are on the right

track.” Public open houses are set for June 6, 11 and 15 in New Westminster and June 8, 12, and 13 in Surrey, with additional small

Elect or abolish?



n the minds of many Canadians, the purpose of the Canadian Senate is a bit of a mystery. It’s a body that’s not elected, what it accomplishes is less than clear, and news about it only erupts when politicians talk about reform, or more recently, when senators play fast and loose with the purse strings of taxpayers. The original purpose of the Senate was to give a sober second thought to bills passed by elected Members of Parliament, and, according to its website, to bolster underrepresented groups, such as women, aboriginal people and minorities. When it comes to being a champion of aboriginal, women’s or minority rights, the Senate is perhaps the last organization that leaps to mind. As well intentioned as the Senate was when created in 1867, today the body is effectively a patronage system for the ruling party to reward loyal and often highprofile Canadians with prestigious well-paid jobs. A more cynical interpretation is the Senate acts as no more than a slush fund to carry out political favours. This week B.C. Premier Christy Clark reiterated her stance that the Senate should be abolished. She said if that’s not possible, B.C. will start electing its senators in an attempt to bring some validity to the body which cost Canadians $106 million in 2012 (minus the $90,000 paid back by senator Mike Duffy). Prime Minister Stephen Harper has long advocated reforming Senate terms and appointment procedures, or even doing away with it altogether. That hasn’t stopped Harper from appointing 56 Conservative senators (and two elected in Alberta) over his time in office. If Parliament can’t abolish the Senate or it accepts that it has a reason to exist, change is desperately needed. The number of senators per province isn’t based on population and it’s not supposed to be, but the current distribution is all over the map. Does it make sense that New Brunswick and Nova Scotia have 10 senators each and Quebec has 24, while Alberta has six and B.C. has five? For the Senate to have credibility, rather than act as a vehicle for patronage and self-serving party loyalty, each province should have an equal number of elected senators, perhaps two or four each. Senators themselves should not be sitting silent, and should be seeking to reform an institution that has no accountability or credibility in terms of working in the interests of Canadians.


ne of Premier Christy Clark’s first tasks of the new term will be to resume trade talks with Alberta and Saskatchewan. Several daunting tasks await. Clark must repair relations with Alberta Premier Alison Redford after B.C.’s theatrics over oil pipelines before the election, and prepare for the results of a federal environmental review of the Enbridge Northern Gateway proposal in the fall. Some people were surprised on Friday when the B.C. government released its final written submission to the federal environmental review panel on Northern Gateway. It was widely interpreted as B.C.’s outright rejection of the project, but it’s not as simple as that. Clark and B.C. Environment Minister Terry Lake signalled several times before the election that they were not getting the answers they wanted from Enbridge. But they stuck to the principle that the hearings must be completed. The NDP repeated for months that the B.C. Liberal government had forfeited its

sition in B.C., the Enbridge pipeline is unlikely to be imposed, and last week Conservative cabinet minister James Moore clearly ruled that out. The B.C. government has consistently maintained that the current project does not meet Clark’s often-repeated five conditions, including the vaguely defined “fair share” of revenues, and Moore said the federal government agrees with those conditions. The B.C. government has to face some other uncomfortable realities as well. If heavy oil pipelines are such a risk, how does B.C. manage the one that has stretched across remote and populated areas for 60 years? Does the government take a stand against new pipelines, and then watch as rail cars full of heavy oil cross those same rivers? No permit is required for that, and in fact there are more hazardous materials than oil moving by rail and road across the province today.

HandyDART layoffs put people at risk Resign your seat, Mr. Hunt

Last year, TransLink delivered more and bet-

ter service more efficiently and achieved recordlevel customer satisfaction. This is the opening statement in TransLink’s invitation to their Annual General Meeting on May 29. That statement is a travesty. Over 30,000 HandyDART trips were denied last year. TransLink has taken 10,000 hours of HandyDART service and given it to taxis. Up to 28 HandyDart drivers are to be laid off on July 22. Devastating working people’s lives and forc-

ing vulnerable people into taxies is no answer to a crisis. HandyDART passengers are not ‘satisfied’ while being stranded in their homes. HandyDART passengers receive safe, door to door service in a HandyDART when they can get it. Taxi trips cannot replace HandyDART, a service that took over 30 years to build. Eroding HandyDART by removing hours of service and dispatching cabs is not a solution. HandyDART’s drivers have training and accountability that will never be equaled by the

taxi industry. The provincial government ran under a family first banner. Now untold HandyDART passengers are put at risk and HandyDART drivers are forced on to the streets to look for employment. Instead of taking the carbon tax and improving public transit, the provincial government and TransLink hurt the very people they are meant to serve. Mark Beeching Langley

‘Bill was a leader, a mentor, and a very good friend’

BiLL reid was a great citizen and a

great friend of the Surrey RCMP. Bill’s community involvement included being a big part of our community policing programs, particularly in Cloverdale and South Surrey, where he was highly respected and very involved. His wise counsel and always positive and cheerful attitude will be truly missed.   Bill worked closely with the Cloverdale/Port Kells office of the Surrey RCMP as a member of the Cloverdale Community Consultative Group, Integrated Services Group, and of the Homeless Committee, since 1998.  Through the years he took on many endeavours, which had a direct and positive influence on the well being of local citizens. Through his efforts a soup kitchen was established which included laundry facilities and donated clothing for those that required it. The soup kitchen is no longer in existence, however, those who originally operated it,still partner today, by providing meals at a local church. In later years, Bill garnered community support, funds and assistance by establishing the currently operating Cloverdale Hyland House – a place for the homeless to go to for accommodation and support. Bill took pride in ensuring Cloverdale remained graffitifree by working closely with the RCMP and Surrey bylaw department. Bill was extremely supportive of the Cloverdale/ Port Kells RCMP office by lending support over the years as an “auctioneer” for the various volunteer fundraising events, or by simply garnering and offering support for various community initiatives.” As the executive director of the Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce, he worked closely with us for all local community events, such as the annual Santa Claus Parade, Rodeo parade, and Blueberry Festival ensuring the safety of the public at all events. Bill Reid’s passion for the com-

munity of Cloverdale and for the City of Surrey was outstanding and will not be forgotten. He has given thousands of voluntary hours to various community endeavours and is a role model for everyone in the community. He has been an inspiration to all those who have worked with him to go above and beyond their normal course of duty to the citizens in the area. He will be missed by all those who have had the privilege of working with him. For Bill’s efforts, he was recognized by the City of Surrey and awarded the Good Citizen Award this year, as well as being presented with a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal in 2012.  On behalf of the Surrey RCMP, I would like to express our deepest condolences to Bill’s wife Marion, their daughters, sons-inlaw, grandchildren, and extended family. 

Bill Fordy Chief Superintendent Officer in Charge Surrey RCMP

Enthusiasm and generosity were legend BiLL reid was the heart and soul

of the Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce and worked tirelessly for 12 years as executive director. Around the board table and particularly at the microphone, Bill’s upbeat attitude and constant smile was an inspiration to us all. He believed in community involvement and tirelessly and constantly involved his many friends and acquaintances in Cloverdale events and Surrey fundraisers. His enthusiasm and generosity were legend and everyone enjoyed working with him simply because he was fun to be around. As Surrey’s Citizen of the year in 2013 and a recipient of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Award, Bill was very proud of the hon-


Letter-writers praise Bill reid for the contributions he made to the community. ours, but he was proudest of his achievements in the Cloverdale Business community by uniting those who believed that a supportive business organization that gets involved in the community can make a big difference in the economic prosperity of that community. Bill was a leader, a mentor, and a very good friend to all of us. Our thoughts and deepest sym-

pathies are with his wife Marion and his four daughters and their families. It is with heartfelt sadness we face the loss of our friend and executive director. Farewell Bill. Rest in Peace. Addison Hubert President Cloverdale District Chamber of Commerce

isn’t it ironic that Premier

Christy Clark is asking municipal governments to function shorthanded for a year-and-a-half so as not to trigger byelections? At the same time she is asking one of her caucus members to step down and allow her to run in a byelection. Surrey’s Marvin Hunt has offered to take a leave of absence or do both jobs until next January. The premier and Mr. Hunt are defeating the spirit of the byelections rules of the Local Government Act. The honourable move is for him to resign his seat immediately and allow for a democratic process to replace him on city council.  Mr. Hunt and Mayor Dianne Watts have grossly inflated byelection costs of $600,000 to $850,000 as justification for delaying Hunt’s resignation. By cutting out advance polls, reducing the existing voting locations from 52 to 25 (using only secondary schools and town centre facilities), and offering mail-in ballots to care facility residents, the election can be held at a fraction of that cost.  Mayor Watts and council could also seize this opportunity to gauge public opinions in non-binding referenda on the byelection ballot. Do you wish to review the opportunity for neighbourhood representation prior to the next general election? (A ward system would dramatically reduce the cost of future byelections). Would you be willing to pay an annual two-per-cent park acquisition levy to fund a third urban forest in an identified ecosystem hub? Are you in favour of banning union and corporate donations to political candidates and limiting individual donations to $100? Are you in favour of a second destination casino in Surrey? Are you in favour of exporting U.S. thermal coal from the Fraser Surrey Docks in North Surrey?  With 13 municipal politicians elected to the legislature just 17 months into their mandate, changes to the Local Government Act and the Community Charter are in order. To avoid byelections in the future maybe the candidate with the next highest number of votes in the last election should be offered the position on an interim basis.      Grant Rice, Surrey

One guilty, one free after murder retrial Amjad Khan convicted – again – of pregnant Surrey mom’s first-degree murder

by Sheila Reynolds After more than five

years in prison, two men accused of killing a pregnant Surrey woman learned their fates on Friday afternoon. Amjad Khan was found guilty of firstdegree murder and Naim Saghir was found not guilty in the 2005

death of young mother Tasha Lynn Rossette. Khan, who once had a relationship with Rossette, was handed a lifetime prison sentence with no chance of parole for 25 years. B.C. Supreme Court Justice Ian Josephson delivered the decision Friday afternoon (May 31) in New Westminster.

For Rossette’s family, the guilty verdict marked a turning point in what has been a long road to healing. “We haven’t been able to bury our daughter,” said Simone Rossette, Tasha’s mom. “She’s in the ground but she’s been alive for seven years in the media…and through court cases, but now

I think he was a pawn with the rest of them that got pulled in.” She embraced one of the witnesses outside the courtroom, thanking him for his testimony during the trial. Tasha’s younger sister, Michelle Dimick, said the family never doubted Khan was responsible for Tasha’s death. “Nothing will ever comfort us, but it’s good to know that he’s there (in jail),” Dimick said, adding they still face a future without Tasha. “My family has been very silent because everybody has been traumatized in a

At least now we can start to regroup our family and move on. “Time does not heal anything.

We’re appreciative for her and we’re glad we’re left with

Chef Matthew stowe gives students at lord tweedmuir secondary some firsthand cooking instruction at the school tuesday.

Top Chef Canada contender returns to his culinary roots Matthew Stowe cooks alongside Lord Tweedsmuir teens by Evan Seal It’s usually complicated land use

issues, inches-thick staff reports, or contentious zoning amendments that demand the attention of Surrey city council. But on Tuesday, the only topics being tabled were roasted chickenbacon roulade, mushroom ravioli, and home-made ricotta cheese, along with brown hazelnuts, asparagus, and wild onions. These were just some of the sumptuous dishes prepared for Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts and members of council by Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary culinary arts students and possibly the next best chef in the country. On May 28, Matthew Stowe, a competitor on the current season of Top Chef Canada, worked alongside students to prepare the meal. It was homecoming for Stowe, a Cloverdale native and Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary grad (Class of 2000). A product of the school’s culinary arts program, Stowe left the Lower Mainland for New York at age 18 to attend the Culinary

Institute of America, interning at a classic French restaurant that later hired him. He returned to B.C. to work as the executive chef at Sonora resort from 2004 to 2010, and now develops menu items for Cactus Club Cafe restaurants. Stowe, 30, is the last remaining B.C.-based contestant on the Food Network’s Top Chef Canada. His superb skills and driven-yet-likable personality have made him a viewer favourite on the popular show (airing on the Food Network Mondays at 10 p.m. PST). The show is pulling in 1.8 to 2 million viewers an episode. Stowe said it was great getting back to his culinary roots. “It was because of that start at Tweedsmuir that I’m kind of where I am today,” he said, praising the school’s culinary program – a trades program with a co-op component that enabled him to land a job at the Hotel Vancouver and set him on his skyrocketing career path. “It’s like going full circle, starting where it all began,” he said Tuesday. “I really wanted to work with the students… it’s great seeing the looks on these guys’ faces

when they try the food and some products that they may not have had before.” Josh Hutton, a Grade 12 student at Lord Tweedsmuir, has been involved in the culinary arts program for three semesters and says he has learned a lot. “I like the whole atmosphere (of cooking)… it’s a fun time – working hard in the kitchen.” Hutton admires Stowe for his accomplishments and says he showed the students some tasty tricks for Tuesday’s meal. “We learned how to do ravioli… it sounds like a good recipe.” Guests from the Surrey School District were also on hand to tuck into lunch. Win or lose the Top Chef Canada competition – and though ending has been taped, Stowe’s not talking – Stowe said is glad he did it, and notes the experience has led to more opportunities to teach people of all ages about food and the ins-and-outs of how restaurants work.

Union fights HandyDart shift to taxis TransLink CEO says move will allow more trips

by Jeff Nagel Up to 28 HandyDart drivers are facing

potential layoffs as TransLink opts to make more use of taxis instead to carry elderly and disabled passengers. Unionized HandyDart workers packed into TransLink’s annual general meeting Wednesday to denounce the move to cut 10,000 service hours in favour of taxi subsidies. “Taxi service is not a solution,” said HandyDart employee Mark Beeching, who contends taxi service is more costly and is unsafe for passengers because cabbies don’t have adequate training. “This is what happens when you have

a contracted-out service and profit is the motive for most decisions,” Amalgamated Transit Union local 1724 union president Bob Chitrenky said of the pending layoffs by operator MVT Canadian Bus. TransLink predicts taxis will save money and allow more trips with the same outlay of money because some longdistance routes currently deadhead back empty. “We can provide more trips for more people with the resources that we’ve got,” CEO Ian Jarvis said, adding two

audits last year directed TransLink to pursue HandyDart service reforms. “You’re dancing around the problem,” Chitrenky said. “You’re not telling us how this is going to be solved.” He said 37,000 people were denied HandyDart rides last year. Jarvis said TransLink needs more long-term funding to meet expected growth in HandyDart demand as well as provide other transit service expansion. Described as a pilot pro-

gram, the first phase of the shift to taxis targets four routes: Surrey to New Westminster, Surrey to Vancouver, White Rock to Vancouver and Delta to Vancouver. The move is just one plank of TransLink’s reforms for greater efficiency. Other measures, such as optimizing bus routes to better meet rider demand, has helped TransLink increase transit revenue by 3.5 per cent by serving more passengers with the same amount of bus service. Chief financial officer Cathy McLay also said TransLink took advantage of low interest rates last year to borrow $250 million through 40-year bonds, providing low-cost financing for the Evergreen Line and SkyTrain station upgrades.

by Jeff Nagel Drivers who received 20 free crossings of the new

Port Mann Bridge by registering early with the TReO tolling system have lost any unused credits. Bridge officials say last week about half of the more than 800,000 TReO-registered drivers still had some free trips remaining, but they expired as planned on May 31. It means many Port Mann Bridge users who have so far crossed for free will now have to start paying out of pocket to continue to cross the new span. Drivers of regular vehicles who signed up by the end of February are still charged the half-price $1.50 per crossing until December, while those who aren’t registered pay the full $3 toll and some of them are also charged a $2.30 licence plate processing fee if they don’t pay within a week. More than 90 per cent of regular morning commuters over the bridge are registered for electronic tolling detection, said Transportation Investment Corp. spokesman Greg Johnson. The small minority who aren’t yet registered are offered yet another carrot to sign up for TReO. Those who do so by Nov. 30 get two free crossings. And if they sign up by the end of June, TReO will convert any licence plate processing fees they were charged in the previous 30 days into an additional credit. Johnson said use of the bridge continues to fluctuate between 100,000 and 115,000 vehicles per day, or about three million per month. He said that’s essentially the same as with the old untolled bridge, adding that while some traffic has diverted to crossings such as the Pattullo or Alex Fraser to avoid tolls, other drivers who avoided the Port Mann due to congestion have come back. “As construction progresses through Burnaby and Coquitlam, drivers will see even more time savings,” Johnson said. The Port Mann/Highway 1 Improvement project is still slated for completion by the end of this year, with work continuing on interchanges and lanes in Coquitlam, Burnaby and Vancouver. One of the final stages of the work will be to open the remaining two lanes of the 10-lane Port Mann. The additional lanes will be segregated from the rest of traffic and offer a direct connection between Surrey and Coquitlam.

Between 100,000 and 115,000 vehicles per day – about three million per month – use the Port Mann Bridge. Meanwhile, the dismantling of the old Port Mann Bridge is becoming more obvious. All the deck and most of the girders have now been removed from the north approach. And Johnson said crews will begin dismantling the main span arch this summer, gradually lowering segments down to barges in the Fraser River.

HOV cheaters on Port Mann could lose discount Toll collecTor TReO may use its cameras to detect and punish Port Mann Bridge users who improperly use the HOV lane to get a 25-per-cent discount. The HOV discount applies in the morning and afternoon weekday rushes and there have been reports of lone motorists swerving into the HOV lane just before the tolling sensors in order to pay less. Transportation Investment Corp. spokesman Greg Johnson said the RCMP enforce HOV lane rules but added TReO may take its own steps to deal with discount cheaters. “We’re looking at doing our own monitoring,” he said, adding it’s too early to provide details on how that will work. Solo drivers who TReO determines were using the HOV lane to get the discount could lose their HOV discount privileges, he said. Johnson maintained HOV lane abuse on the bridge is not rampant.

Auditor targets cities Surrey is among municipalities to be probed

by Jeff Nagel B.C.’s auDitor General For Local

Government (AGLG) is targeting several municipalities for audits over the next year, including Surrey, Delta, New Westminster and West Vancouver. Surrey-based Basia Ruta said value-for-money audits on operational procurement are planned for Delta, West Vancouver, Revelstoke and the regional districts of Fraser-Fort George and Comox Valley. Surrey will be audited for oversight of the RCMP budget

and policing agreement policing. Victoria, New Westminster, Merritt, Port Alberni, and Williams Lake also face policing oversight audits. Other audits examining capital procurement projects and asset management programs will target North Vancouver District, Cranbrook, Rossland, Sechelt, Dawson Creek and Campbell River. The initial sets of audits are to be finished by March 31, 2014. Other audits are still to be announced on how well cities ensure clean drinking water and

challenges to sparsely staffed municipalities. The AGLG was created by the provincial government despite objections from some B.C. cities which feared it could turn into a witch hunt for waste that failed to take into account differing municipal priorities. The Canadian Federation of Independent Business released a study Wednesday saying municipal spending in Canada’s four biggest cities far outpaces population growth and the rate of inflation.

Westminster and Burnaby in a mobile business licence pilot project, following pleas from local businesses. The purchase of the business licence would allow mobile businesses, like contractors and caterers, to operate across participating municipalities and regional districts. “For a company in the construction sector operating in multiple communities the many thousands of dollars and time spent to take out an individual business licence for each community every year is a great burden,” said Delta Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Peter Roaf. “Under this new system, that company can take out a business licence where it is based then an additional business licence for multiple communities for maybe $200 or so.”

Chambers of Commerce and Boards of Trade across Canada have been advocating for the mobile business licence for years. The Okanagan-Similkameen region piloted the first 12-month mobile business licence project beginning in January, 2008, across 17 communities. This past January, nine Fraser Valley municipalities launched a similar pilot. Inter-municipal business licence agreements already exist in the Victoria region, Cowichan Valley, North Okanagan, North-West Vancouver, CourtenayComox, and the Trail region. Corporation of Delta staff will now come forward with a proposed bylaw to support the pilot some time in October, 2013. The project is expected to run for 24 months, after which participating municipalities will decide whether to keep the program.

Trevor Skillen, chair of the Delta Heritage Airpark, checks his map before taking off in his 1942 Boeing Stearman biplane (below).

Flying into the past

Delta Heritage Air Park is home to some of the most impressive vintage aircraft around by Robert Mangelsdorf


t’s an overcast day over Boundary Bay, but for Trevor Skillen, any day without rain is good for flying. His Second World War-era Boeing Stearman biplane has an open canopy, exposing him to the elements. “You’re going so fast the windshield blows it right over top of you,” he says. “The real problem with the rain is the visibility.” That won’t be a problem on this day. Mount Baker looms in the distance as Skillen pilots his bright yellow warbird over the Semiahmoo Peninsula. Flying a few hundred feet above White Rock Beach, he pitches the plane suddenly upwards before curling off and hurtling back towards the ground. “A wingover,” he says, his voice crackling over the radio headset. He points the plane skywards again, and then, like a roller coaster reaching its apex, the plane evens out momentarily before plummeting towards the ocean below. Skillen pulls back on the stick once more, and the plane climbs and climbs, until finally it can climb no more, and once again submits to gravity and returns to Earth.

This time, however, the plane is upside down. “An inside loop,” he says. Below the residents of White Rock no doubt watch puzzled, as the 70-year-old biplane barnstorms above the beach on this Friday afternoon. Having thoroughly impressed the onlookers below, he points the nose for home, and touches down softly on the manicured grass strip at the Delta Heritage Air Park. Skillen hops out, a grin stretching from ear-to-ear. “There’s no way to describe that feeling,” he says, beaming. Trevor Skillen isn’t your typical recreational pilot. But then, the Delta Heritage Air Park isn’t your typical airport. For more than 50 years, it has been home to some of the most impressive vintage aircraft in the Lower Mainland. “We’re a well-kept secret out here,” he says. The idyllic grass strip is just five miles east of Boundary Bay Airport, but it might as well be in the middle of nowhere. “There’s nothing like this in any major city in Canada,” says Skillen, who is also the chair of the Delta Heritage Airpark Operating Committee (DAPCOM). The air strip is uncontrolled, and is actually part of the Metro Vancouver Regional Parks system. The slow pace suits Skillen just fine. “You can come and go as you please,” he says. “You don’t have to talk to the tower, you don’t have to ask permission.” The airpark is a living aviation museum, home to dozens of classic aircraft. There is a Cold War-era Chinese trainer, Harvard trainers, a Pitts Special biplane, a handful of the legendary Piper Cub bush planes, Aeronca Champions, as well as the usual assortment of Cessnas, Cherokees, and Beechcrafts. In the golden age of aviation, all you needed was a grass strip to get off the ground, and the pilots here still like to keep things just that simple.

Air park: Not just for the wealthy From page 14 Some choose to fly without GPS, instead relying on maps sewn into the inside of their jackets to chart their course. “You don’t even need a radio to fly out of here,” says Skillen. Many of the hangars are converted old barns. While they’ve been renovated on the inside, Skillen says the air park wants to keep them looking as rustic as possible, like patina on vintage furniture. But the air park isn’t a playground for the wealthy – far from it. The air park’s low user fees have attracted aviation enthusiasts of all tax brackets, many of whom have built or restored their own aircraft. It’s just $35 per month to park a plane on Delta Heritage Air Park’s grass apron, and little more than $200 to rent a hangar. “Less than what a parking spot would cost you downtown,” says Raymond Colley, the air park’s former chair. “Ideally, we want to run it like a public golf course, and be accessible to everyone.” And just as every golf course has its clubhouse, the Delta Heritage Air Park has its coffee shop as its social hub. The walls of the shop are festooned with maps, yellowed photos of airplanes, and all manner of aviation memorabilia. Here the pilots can help themselves to hot coffee behind the counter, provided they drop some change into the cup. There’s always great conversation to be had, and the pilots love to talk shop.

Colley has been flying nearly his entire life, and spent much of his career captaining 747-400s across to Hong Kong and back for Cathay Pacific. After retiring close to 10 years ago, he rediscovered the joys of light aircraft, and fell in love with flying all over again. Flying at Delta Heritage Air Park is back-to-basics, he says. “This is grassroots flying,” says Colley. “This is how it all started.” The land the air park occupies at the end of 104 Street was once a farm owned by Darmel Embree, who fell in love with flying later in life after taking flight with a friend. Embree carved a grass landing strip out of his field and in 1960, began renting out tie-downs to other pilots. Due to overwhelming demand, he decided to build hangars a few years later. “This was all before Boundary Bay Airport was reopened (in 1983), so there was nowhere to really fly in and out of Delta at the time,” says Skillen. In 1995 the air park was bought by the Greater Vancouver Regional District and is now part of Boundary Bay Regional Park. The air park has only one staff member, a janitor/custodian/groundskeeper, whose major responsibility is to cut the grass of the 800-metre runway and adjacent apron. “Day to day it doesn’t cost taxpayers anything,” says Metro Vancouver parks manager Mitch Sokalski. Once a month, the air park holds a pancake breakfast at the coffee shop that’s open to the

public. But the public is invited to use the facilities any time, and many cyclists and hikers using the Boundary Bay dike trail often pop in for a quick visit. “It’s a great place to come and visit, even if you’re not a pilot,” says Sokalski. Not surprisingly, the air park is frequent stop for aviation buffs, and it’s hard not catch their infectious enthusiasm for flying. Skillen caught the flying bug as a child growing up in Quebec, listening to his father’s tales of being an airman in the Second World War. “You hear the stories around the dinner table, and it becomes a part of you,” Skillen says. Success in the software industry has allowed him to pursue his aviation hobby. In addition to his Stearman, he has a de Havilland Beaver, and is looking to acquire a Second World War-era North American Aviation Harvard. But Skillen says he sees himself as a custodian of history, as opposed to a just an airplane owner. “We get to take care of them for a while, and then we pass them on,” he says. “These planes were around before I was born, and hopefully they’ll be around long after I’m gone.” So too is it his hope for the Delta Heritage Air Park. “You would never be able to create something like this today,” he says. “It’s totally unique. That’s why it’s important we preserve it.”

Five medals by Tweedsmuir athletes at BC meet

Gold for Ingvaldson

by Rick Kupchuk

Two aThleTes combined for five medals, lifting Lord Tweedmuir Secondary to 10th in the team standings at the B.C. High School Track and Field Championships in Langley. Ben Ingvaldson, 16, won a gold medal, and he and teammate Jasmine Grant each collected a pair of bronze medals. Along with a fifth-place performance from the school’s 4x100m relay team, Lord Tweedsmuir totaled 38 points at the two-day meet, tying for 10th place with Langley Secondary. Ingvaldson won his gold medal in the boys shotput, with a throw of 15.64m that was almost a full metre better than the runner-up. Chitraj Dosanjh of Delview Secondary placed fifth at 13.57m. Ingvadlson was also the bronze medalist in the hammer throw and discus. His best effort was 51.93 metres in the hammer, while his throw of 45.26m in the discus edged the fourth-place athlete by eight centimetres. Jasmine Grant won her bronze medals with two personal best times, bouncing back from a Grade 11 year that saw her performance slowed by illness. “Last year I had mono for three months before (provincials), so I ran the 100 and 200 but not the 400,” she said. “I didn’t make the final in either, it was a lot to overcome. So this year was a bit of a comeback, I guess. It felt pretty good.” She was third in both the 200m race with a time of 25.76 seconds, and the 400m in 57.76 seconds. “I was ranked fourth in both events before the provincials,” Grant said. “I was so so happy in the end to get a couple of medals in my Grade 12 year.” Ephraim Tadesse of North Surrey Secondary won a pair of silver medals, finishing as the runner-up in both the boys 2,000m steeplechase and the 1,500m race.

He completed the steeplechase in 6:11.12, 2.25 seconds off the pace. He was bumped up into the runner-up position in the 1,500m race after crossing the line in third place. His time of 3:57.28 was good for the silver medal, after a competitor was disqualified for interference. “I think I could have run faster in the 1,500,” said the Grade 12 student. “But I’m happy with the meet overall. Of course I wish I could have done a bit better in my last high school meet, but it was a good meet.” Timothy Delcourt of Kwantlen Park Secondary took the bronze medal in the boys 3,000m run, his time of 8:38.07 just 2.2 seconds back of the winner. Jasmine Gill of Sullivan Heights Secondary just missed a medal by placing fourth in the girls 800m race, her time of 2:16.50 just 26 one-hundredths of a second behind the third place finisher. Asianna Covington, a Surrey resident attending Little Flower Academy in Vancouver, had little trouble winning in the shotput with a throw of 48.2m, 1.13m further then the second place thrower. Prabhjit Dosanjh of Delview was one position out of the medals, placing fourth at 36.48m. Covington also won the gold medal in the hammer throw, easily outdistancing the runner-up with her toss of 53.83m, more than five metres further than the silver medalist. She added a third medal in the shot put, her effort of 12.83m earning the silver medal. Avneet Nijjar of Queen Elizabeth Secondary placed fourth, her best throw of 11.2m just 24 centimetres shy of a medal. Colleen Butler of Holy Cross high school took the bronze medals in the 1,500m race walk. She finished in 8:12.05. Brent Reston of Surrey Christian placed fourth in the boys javelin, his toss of 49.75m just 85cm shy of a bronze medal.
