Trustees cut own pay By Sheila Reynolds Surrey school trustees voted themselves a $200 per year pay decrease last week. The seven-member board will now receive an annual rate of $30,200 – down from the past year’s salary of $30,400. (The chair and vice-chair of the board of education get an extra $3,000 and $1,500, respectively).

Trustee pay is reviewed each year and is based on the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for Vancouver. While the rate has increased steadily over the years, this year, it decreased 0.8 per cent. In accordance with district policy, it was recommended that the pay for Surrey trustees be reduced to reflect the CPI change.

“I believe that this is the correct thing to do,” said Trustee Charlene Dobie. Last year, trustees increased their pay by $560 per year, and the year before, $66 per year. Trustees in Coquitlam, where there are nine trustees, but fewer students and a smaller budget, are the highest paid in the Lower Mainland, with a base rate of $36,675.

Surrey ‘Councilors’ isn’t historically accurate, either To the editor; Whoever composed your web page and wrote your Interurban Again ads in the June 20 [edition] should be more careful....copy and pasted from your web, “Surrey Councilors”... look in the phone book, look at signs in city hall, look in a Canadian dictionary. It is “councillors” in Canada. You

If we could use the railway from Scott Road Station to Chillwack for street cars or a sort of South Fraser Express we’d be set. I forgot what the name of the railroad is, I think it’s called Surrey Rail Link. But guessing by the amount of traffic on it they could run a few trains westbound and eastbound per day. Or better yet do what Portland did and build new streetcars and rail out to Chillwack.

have used the American spelling. Shame. Yes, I probably rode the car back in the late ‘40s and early ‘50s. The spelling then is as it should be used now. The cars may be historical, your spelling isn’t. Byron Fisher

Another a monster neighbourhood To the editor; Regarding your May 23 front page article about a meeting at Adams Road Elementary (“Cramped school woes prompt meeting,” May 23), I wish we would be notified ahead of time that there will be such a meeting. I live nearby. There was no correspondence from the city or the school PAC to residents who have no children attending this school. We still live here and wish to participate in the planning discussions regarding housing development. At the corner of 180 Street and 67 Avenue, the development signs went up during spring

break and the houses are already demolished, faster than you can breathe, or signs are purposely destroyed and removed by someone mysterious, so no one knows about the actual plans. I browsed the local papers for the city notices about development, have seen none. Why do we have the need to chop up all decent-sized lots and build cookie cutter homes creating overcrowding? This is what they call sustainable? Haven’t they learned their lesson from creating the Clayton monster neighbourhood? Why does our city need to be the largest city on the west coast?

Another new role for Falcon By Jennifer Lang Former SurreyCloverdale MLA and deputy B.C. premier Kevin Falcon has been appointed to the board of the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada. The appointment, made by federal cabinet order, was announced Monday. The former minister of finance spent 12 years in senior cabinet positions as a B.C. Liberal. One of his previous duties included being the minister responsible for the Asia Pacific file. The Asia Pacific Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit think tank on Canada’s relations with Asia. Falcon said he’s honoured by the appointment. “I hope to apply my public and private sector experience to help foster informed decision-making specific to improving Canada’s relations with Asia,” he said. “This is a critical relationship for our country’s economy.” In April, Falcon ended months of speculation about his future plans when it was announced he’d joined Anthem Capital Corp. as its executive vice president. He started his new job with Anthem May 16, two days after the provincial election. Anthem Capital Corp. is a member of

Make Friends: Stop Snoring! By Christine Cheng (R.Ph), Fred Cheng (R.Ph), Lyle Sunada (R.Ph)

Laugh and the world laughs with you; snore and you sleep alone. Snoring typically increases as we age due to changes in anatomy and medication use. It affects up to 25% of us, and if you include sufferers of “secondary snoring”, then the numbers rise dramatically. But snoring is harmless, right? Well, yes and no. Physically, even if you can endure the pillows and elbows tossed at you by your spouse or trip companions, snoring can be a sign of things such as a sinus infection, nasal congestion, deviated septum, or obstructive sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea is the temporary blockage of airflow during sleep for 10 seconds or more, resulting in less oxygen getting to the blood, thus causing the heart to pump harder, increasing blood pressure, and ultimately increasing the risk of congestive heart failure and stroke. Snorers may also not reach the deeper sleep stages, which are required for an appropriate night’s rest. This can be dangerous in that it renders the person less alert for their daily activities (eg. driving, crossing street, going up and down stairs). Mild cases of snoring can be rectified with lifestyle changes. For example, obese people have bulky neck tissue that could narrow the air passageways, so losing weight may help. The use of tranquilizers and sleeping pills, antihistamines, or alcohol just before bed may relax the muscles too much, causing the collapsible airways to narrow. Midnight snacks should also be avoided, since food can trigger saliva and mucus production which may interfere with breathing. Sleeping on your side may angle your jaw in such a way to allow the smoothest airflow to and from the lungs. Having a humidifier can help moisten the air-

ways; a dry throat tends to vibrate more than a moist one. More severe cases of snoring will require further assessments and may even require surgery, but there are several NATURAL REMEDIES that can benefit mild to moderate cases of snoring. BREATHE RIGHT nasal strips are great for opening up the nasal passageways. Most cases of snoring are due to obstruction in the throat tissues, though, so other remedies are needed. A homeopathic product called SNORE-EZE MIX can be taken a short period before sleeping and has the benefit of having no side-effects or interactions. It can be used on its own, or combined with another homeopathic product called LUFFEEL NASAL SPRAY to further open up the airways and minimize irritation to the passages. An interesting concoction called PS ANTI-SNORE SPRAY is compounded right on location at our pharmacy. All that is required is 5 or 6 sprays at the back of the throat towards the uvula and upper palate 3040 minutes before bedtime and the mild- to moderate-snorer will be kept from snoring. It tastes great (tutti-fruiti!) and works by shrinking the soft tissues at the back of the throat.

A promising product called SNORE OWL is a mechanical device that fits into the mouth like a sports mouth-guard. It is safe to use with any of the above natural products if desired. The device is custom-moldable to fit your mouth, and works by positioning the lower jaw forward and slightly downwards in order to separate the soft mass of tissue at the back of the throat thus maximizing the size of the airway. There are 2 settings and it is unique in that it allows for some sideways movement of the jaw, making it much more comfortable than other such mouth-guards. This product was developed locally and their office is just down the street from Cloverdale Pharmasave. There is a 30-day money-back guarantee. We have already had quite a few clients reporting success with it. Snoring could present as both a social and a health-related concern, but there are ways to prevent or even stop it. Why not give yourself and your roommates a good night’s sleep and try some of the remedies our clients have benefitted from? You will find yourself living with more energy, better mental acuity, and improved memory. Sleep well! (Christine and Fred Cheng are a sister-brother pharmacist team at their unique family-owned and operated Pharmasave in Cloverdale, BC. Lyle Sunada is the pharmacy manager at the same pharmacy. They specialize in natural remedies and compounding for both human and veterinarian use. They would love to hear from you! 604-576-2888; Of course, before you begin any activity program or try any OTC supplementation, check with your physician and pharmacist.)

Not mad cow: FHA Food sources not the culprit

By Jeff Nagel Three suspected Lower Mainland cases of a degenerative brain-wasting disease have nothing to do with mad cow disease or the consumption of beef, say public health officials. One resident in the Fraser Health region is dead of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) and two others who are ill are believed to have it. “I want to be clear there is absolutely no evidence that these three confirmed or probable cases are linked to food consumption,” said Paul Van Buynder, Fraser Health’s chief medical health officer. He said these are cases of “classical” CJD that appear every year, albeit rarely, at a rate of one or two per million. Tests have ruled out the variant form of CJD linked to consumption of beef from cattle infected with mad cow disease (bovine spongiform encephalopathy). “There has never been a home-grown case of variant CJD in Canada so this is not surprising,” Van Buynder said. He said some media and social media reports wrongly referred to the local cases as “human mad cow disease.” About 30 Canadians a year contract the standard form of CJD. Van Buynder said the three cases in Fraser are one or two more than might normally be expected here in a year, but still within what’s statistically likely. “There is no outbreak and I want to reassure residents of the Lower Mainland that there is no risk to the public or to residents in our facilities.” The patients are from different Fraser region cities and settings, he said, and a review so far has not found any links to suggest a common source of the neurological disorder. Three more possible case were investigated by Fraser over the past year but are considered unlikely to be CJD. CJD victims die about a year after symptoms appear. They first show psychiatric problems like anxiety or depression, followed by persistent pain or odd sensations, unsteady or jerky walking, progressive dementia and eventual inability to move or speak.

Kicking cancer one field goal at a time One man’s initiative to raise money for a charity that helps the families and friends of those coping with the disease By Gary Ahuja Josh Collins is back and ready to take a couple of kicks at cancer. More specifically, 4,000 kicks at the deadly disease. Last Saturday (June 22), at the Jack Poole Plaza in Vancouver, the 32-year-old Langley man launched Kicking Cancer. The initiative will see Collins — a former football kicker and soccer player — attempt to kick 4,000 field goals at eight events between now and the fall. It works out to about 500 field goals per event. Last year, Collins aimed to kick 100,000 yards in field goals — 2,858 field goals of 35 yards apiece — during a 48-hour span at an event in Richmond. He managed to kick 1,955 field goals, a total of 68,425 yards, and raised around $10,000. The goal is to now raise $1 million for the Ron Collins Foundation, which is named after his father, who passed away four years ago after an eight-month battle with lung cancer. His father never smoked a day in his life.

Dance party to help raise funds for Langley girl Newbies welcome at Zumbathon By Jennifer Lang A dance studio in Langley is holding a fundraiser next Friday to help a little girl with a rare disease. Fire Dance Studio is holding a Zumbathon June 28 for Selena Yorke, a Grade 5 Langley Meadows Elementary student, Selena, 11, was diagnosed last year with Friedreich’s Ataxia, a rare, neuromuscular disease that affects her ability to talk, talk and sing. Her family is facing numerous challenges as a result of the progression of the disease, says Maria Martini, co-owner of Fire Dance Studio. Supporters are invited to a two-hour Zumba dance party at Murrayville Hall, 21667 48 Avenue, Langley. Admission is $15 with all proceeds to the Yorke family. Martini first learned about Selena’s story through Facebook. “I was very touched by her story, as I know how hard it can be in going through something like this,� says Martini, who lost her nephew to illness two years ago. “I saw up close all the difficulties my family had to go through, especially financially,� she says, adding she understands how overwhelming it can be for parents with a child is in the hospital who must take time off work. Newbies who have never tried Zumba are welcome. For tickets, call 604-723-9910 or email

Senior fights off attacker Surrey RCMP are appealing to the public for help identifying the suspect in an attempted sexual assault of a 74-year-old Fleetwood resident over the weekend. At around 8:15 p.m. June 23, police were called out to the 15800-block of 80 Avenue, where a woman was grabbed by an unknown male. She managed to fight her attacker off, and the suspect fled eastbound on 80 Avenue on a BMX bike. The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, approximately 6’ tall, with a buzz cut, and wearing a grey and red ‘Echo’ hooded jacket and blue jeans. Police are calling this an isolated incident, but anyone with further information who has not yet spoken to police is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

The foundation aims to help the families and friends of those suffering from the disease. “The whole purpose is to be a voice for a cause that really isn’t being spoken about,� Collins explained about the lack of support for families, especially financial.

Balancing schools budget ‘trying’: trustee By Sheila Reynolds Unlike many B.C. school districts that are facing deficits and drastic cuts, Surrey has managed to balance its budget for the upcoming school year. But it has hardly been easy, said Trustee Terry Allen, who chairs the Education Budget Committee. The $600-million preliminary operating budget for 2013/2014 is comprised of $573 million in provincial government grants and $15 million from district revenue from things like international student tuition and renting out school buildings. An additional $12.3 million was found in unspent money from this year, such as funds set aside for snow clearing. And another $4 million in savings is coming through so called “operating efficiencies,” such as reducing expenditures and some job reductions. The district says no one will be losing their job per se, but the overall decrease in 45 positions – including 25 teachers and 17 support staff – will be mainly through attrition. The budget is based on a projection that there will be 69,798 students in local schools this fall, an increase of just 37 full-time students from this year. While Surrey has in the past benefited from steady increases in student numbers, enrolment is predicted to be “flat” over the next three years, meaning only modest increases in per-pupil grants from government. Despite student numbers staying relatively stagnant, said Allen, costs continue to rise. “The board and district must, of course, work within our funding limitations,” said Allen, “and this is very trying as we continually face employee benefits and utility cost increases, as well as the requirement to absorb carbon offsets and costs incurred through increased absenteeism.” More than 85 per cent of the budget goes toward instructional and classroom support, while two per cent is spent on district administration. The rest goes to maintenance and transportation in the Surrey School District. Final adjustments to Surrey’s budget may be made after Sept. 30, when actual student numbers are tallied. By law, B.C. school districts must submit a balanced operating budget by June 30 each year.

Raises topple CEO By Jeff Nagel Lynda Cranston has resigned as president and CEO of the Provincial Health Services Authority after management pay raises were approved without the board’s consent or knowledge. The three per cent wage hikes for 118 managers at PHSA in late May contravened a provincial government order last fall to freeze public sector management salaries. The PHSA runs B.C. Children’s Hospital, B.C. Women’s Hospital, the B.C. Cancer Agency and various other specialty or provincial services, such as the B.C. Ambulance Service, B.C. Transplant, the B.C. Centre for Disease Control, and B.C. Mental Health and Addiction Services. Carl Roy has been named acting president and CEO. Cranston will stay on to oversee transition projects until her July 31 retirement, upon which she will get no severance pay. The PHSA board is reviewing its

– Black Press

legal options to reverse the pay hikes, which add $621,000 in annual payroll costs to the authority’s $2.5-billion budget. “I was disappointed to learn that the wage policy of government was not followed,” Health Minister Terry Lake said. “All heath authorities have been reminded that there cannot be any variance from the policy in place.” Lake said finite health dollars go to front-line care during difficult economic times. PHSA board chair Wynne Powell said the board will implement measures to ensure the violation is never repeated. “The PHSA Board has always prided itself on providing high quality care while ensuring public funds are expended in the most efficient and appropriate manner,” Powell said. Cranston was PHSA’s first and only CEO and Powell said she “worked tirelessly to help shape PHSA into the high quality, world-class health organization that it is today.” – Black Press

for the Cloverdale pet and the people who love them

Along with warm summer nights come barbecues, campfires and fireworks. While the sonic-boom of pyrotechnics may be thrilling for us, it is not as enjoyable for many of our furry friends. Fireworks can cause animals to panic, putting both pets and people in danger. When dogs

and cats are frightened they are more likely to run away from their homes, jump out of open windows or dart into traffic. Stressed pets can also behave out of character — even scratching or biting people. With summer now underway, the BC SPCA strongly recommends that pet guardians plan for the safety of their household animals during fireworks festivities.

Keep pets inside An indoor pet is a happy pet on fireworks night. To help muffle the noise and prevent animals from escaping, remember to close the windows of your home and draw

the curtains. Some pets do well left in a separate room with the radio or television on to mask the sound of fireworks. Be sure to leave plenty of toys in the room for your pet so that he doesn’t think he’s being isolated as a punishment.

Identification Make sure your pet is wearing identification. Dogs and cats may try to run away if they feel threatened. Clear, current identification is your best chance to have them returned to you.

Don’t console your anxious pet While it is natural to want to comfort your pet, it is better to use a bright, cheerful voice to send a message that things are fine. Avoid saying things like, “it’s OK” or “don’t be scared”

Leave home without them While you may think it would be fun to bring your dog to the festivities, he or she may not share your view.

change the perception,” said Hope. The history he refers to goes back more than a decade – but is one that haunts the school district. It began in 1997 when a primary teacher named James Chamberlain asked the board of the day to approved three children’s books featuring same-sex parents. His request was denied, sparking legal action that spanned years, divided the community, garnered national attention and proceeded all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada.

Anthony Hope

On June 27, Chamberlain, now a viceprincipal in Vancouver, said he was “cautiously optimistic” about Surrey’s new regulation. “A regulation or policy is only as good as

the paper it’s written on unless you have a really good implementation policy,” he said. “Because of their history and the perpetuation of homophobia by previous trustees… there’s a bigger onus on Surrey.” Jordan Tinney, deputy superintendent, acknowledged there remains much work to be done in the fall, including developing staff resources and training programs, educating students and parents about the regulation and weaving it into ageappropriate curriculum. He lauded the committee members, in

particular the youth, for their dedication, noting there were many long, open and frank conversations before pens were put to paper. “The impact of the student voice at the table was significant and substantial,” said Tinney. “We hope this will close one or more books on our history… and show we’re ready to move forward.” There are 23 other school districts in B.C. that have also established anti-homophobia regulations and policies.

By Sheila Reynolds Last Thursday was a big night for Anthony Hope. The Surrey student was on hand as school trustees gave their unanimous approval to an anti-homophobia regulation. “It’s very validating for me because it signals that the board does care about students like me and students who are LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning), or have gay or lesbian parents or gender identity issues,” said Hope. “The board is recognizing this and saying that it’s okay.” Prior to coming out, he said, there were times he felt it was far from okay to be gay. He hated himself and was afraid because everything he read about homosexuality seemed to be negative. But when a friend committed suicide as a result of gay bashing, Hope took action. He was among a group that approached the Surrey Board of Education a year ago, calling for the school district to establish an anti-homophobia policy. A committee comprised of teachers, district staff, parents and students was struck almost immediately, spending months forming a stand-alone regulation aimed at supporting “students, staff and community members of all sexual orientations or gender identities.” Hope said while the subject is often an emotional one, everyone came to the table with passion and with an open mind. He believes the regulation will spark classroom conversations and result in greater openness and acceptance. “We’re moving forward and it’s going to counteract the history of Surrey and hopefully

Water rules turn off tap of summer fun: Delta mayor Child play a casualty of new early morning lawn watering regulations in Metro Vancouver, laments Lois Jackson By Jeff Nagel Running back and forth through a water sprinkler on a hot summer afternoon is one of the great delights of childhood. But Delta Mayor Lois Jackson says Metro Vancouver appears to have inadvertently outlawed those merry moments of fun and frolic as part of the regional district’s ongoing drive to conserve water. Metro water sprinkling rules that took effect June 1 say lawns may only be watered between 4 and 9 a.m. on designated days, a measure planners say helps control peak water use and push back costly infrastructure upgrades. “When we were small we always had the sprinkler in the backyard,” Jackson said. “Neighbours would come over and play and shriek and laugh when it’s hot in the sprinkler. My kids did it.” Jackson asked at the May 24 Metro board meeting if the regulations also preclude running a sprinkler so kids can have backyard fun. She was told it does and violators could be fined $100.

But Metro board chair Greg Moore noted Metro doesn’t enforce the water sprinkling bylaw – local cities do – so local bylaw officers could show leniency. “I think there’s some grey room,” Moore said. “If you don’t direct your staff to enforce, it’s not Metro staff going out there.” The Metro regulations allow early morning sprinkling for even-numbered homes on Mondays, Wednesdays or Saturdays and odd-numbered addresses on Tuesdays, Thursdays or Sundays. The restrictions don’t apply to watering flowers, vegetables, shrubs and trees. Metro recommends lawns be watered no more than one hour a week. Jackson said she’s not sure it would be right for a municipality to order relaxed enforcement of the rules. And she said she doubts the early morning sprinkling rules are supported by many residents. “I don’t know of anybody who has the ability to get up at

four o’clock in the morning to attend to the sprinkler.” Metro officials say morning-only sprinkling helps flatten spikes in water use during summer evenings, so lawn watering doesn’t also compete with uses like dishwashers, bathing and washing. “If businesses and residents continue to conserve water during the summer, Metro Vancouver can push back the date when we have to build higher dams, bigger pumping stations and bigger water mains,” said North Vancouver City Mayor Darrell Mussatto, chair of Metro’s utilities committee. One hour of lawn sprinkling uses as much water as 25 toilet flushes, five loads of laundry and five dishwasher loads, according to Metro. Early morning sprinkling also means less water goes to waste from evaporation, which is faster at later times of the day. “Why waste high-quality drinking water on lawns?” Moore asked.
