Breach of trust admitted after drugs and other contraband found in inmates’ cells

Imprisonment sought for ex jail guard Sheila Reynolds Black Press

Sedrick Dang

Crown prosecutors have recommended a former prison guard spend four years in jail for accepting bribes to smuggle contraband to inmates at Surrey Pretrial Services Centre. The sentencing of Sedrick Dang, 26, began in Surrey Provincial Court on Monday. He pleaded guilty in July to breach of trust by a public officer and

accepting a bribe as an officer. The court heard this week that Dang was hired by B.C. Corrections in early 2011 and started work in March, following weeks of training. He worked at the Surrey jail, located in the same complex as the courthouse in the 14300-block of 57 Avenue, for about 18 months before his arrest in November 2012. An agreed statement of facts read by Crown prosecutor Alisia Adams said

there were seven known members of the United Nations (UN) gang in Surrey pretrial at the time Dang was accused of smuggling items into the jail. In September 2012, when a UN inmate’s cell was searched, it was discovered there was a hole cut into a desk. Inside, there were more than 200 white pills found, as well as a syringe and vials of steroids. A search of another cell found several

knives, two screwdrivers, a cellphone and charger, a computer memory stick, needles and dozens of pills and capsules. All the jail cells were then searched. In a third cell, there were three wrapped packages of a white substance and some marijuana. Inmates from the three cells where contraband was found were put into segregation, said Adams. i see page A4

Fast-charge stations pave ‘green highway’

Surrey charged up over electric cars Jeff Nagel Black Press

A new fast-charging station for electric cars unveiled in Surrey Monday is the first to become operational in the Lower Mainland and forms part of the northern leg of a green highway stretching south to California. The Surrey Museum station at Highway 10 east of 176 Street in Cloverdale is one of 13 direct-current fast-charge stations being built in southern B.C. to offer electric-car users more places to quickly juice up the battery.

There are already hundreds of publicly usable standard-charge (Level 2) stations, but the DC Fast Charge sites need only 20 to 30 minutes for an 80 per cent charge, rather than four to eight hours. Officials say supercharge sites are key to combatting the “range anxiety” of being stranded with a dead battery that deters some people from buying all-electric cars. “Providing access to this technology is essential to moving consumers away from fossil-fuel reliance in favour of sustainable clean-energy alternatives,” Surrey Coun. Bruce Hayne said.

Lest we forget.

It’s unclear if drivers will eventually have to pay to use the fast-charge stations, but Hayne said the Surrey station will be free of charge “for the foreseeable future.” The Surrey Museum station is the first available charge point north of the U.S. border for electric-powered American motorists. There are only about 700 electric vehicles in B.C. but thousands more are expected in the years ahead. Like the site in Surrey, other fast-charge stations are being built in partnership with BC Hydro and local cities.

Gary Robinson has died. The long-time former Surrey councillor, who served from 1987 to 1999, passed away early Saturday morning. Robinson had been playing hockey – one of  his many passions –  for the Red Army team on Friday night, and then came home and went to sleep. He Gary Robinson former councillor never woke up. Cause of death is yet to be determined. He was 57. Robinson was a feisty force on council, serving with the Surrey Civic Electors under the mayoralty of Bob Bose and, later, Surrey Electors Team mayor Doug McCallum. He was known as one of the toughest opposition councillors in recent memory. Much like a hockey player, he would go head first into the corners and dig at the issues until they had been fully debated. i see page A4

He was president of a new civic group called Surrey Matters, which has been planning to run candidates in the November 2014 election. Robinson pushed council on a number of issues during his time there, particularly preservation of parks and natural areas, like Green Timbers, Sunnyside Acres and the Surrey Bend. While many current residents take the preservation of these areas for granted, it took a lot of hard work to get them preserved for the future, and he was a key player in that. There is no shortage of pressure in Surrey to develop lands, including those owned by the city, and it often takes a lot of push back to preserve lands in their natural state. Yet it is key to creating a livable city, something that council was slow to recognize at first. He also was passionate about hockey and was instrumental in the South Surrey Arena being built as an Olympic-size arena. Gary Robinson cared about his community and the people who live in it. His public battle with addiction made him appreciate people even more, and his service in helping other to beat their addictions is a legacy his family can be very proud of. He made Surrey a better place. Frank Bucholtz writes Thursdays for the Peace Arch News. He is the editor of the Langley Times.

White Rock council calls for study of mayor’s role, approves higher wages for future councillors

Mayor’s raise excluded from city vote Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

White Rock staff will take yet another look at what the city’s mayor should be paid, following a vote Monday to adopt increases to councillors’ remuneration. But the new review was not the outcome Coun. Helen Fathers had intended when she suggested prior to the vote – and received support for – removing a recommended increase to the mayor’s pay from the equation. The amended policy had called for councillors’ annual stipend to climb by about $3,100 to $29,700 (from $26,580), effective Jan. 1, 2015, and for the mayor’s earnings to jump to $79,140 (from $59,810). “My intention was to pull it out so it would just stay the same that it now is,” Fathers told her peers, during discussion of a subsequent motion by Coun. Larry Robinson to have staff re-review the mayor’s pay. Robinson reasoned the re-look was necessary to ensure the mayor’s earnings reflect

the reality of what the position entails. “The duties of the mayor, even in White Rock, are getting pretty close to a full-time job now,” he said. “We should really be looking at what’s expected of the mayor in White Rock. I know from previous mayors it’s a lot of work.” Fathers, along with Couns. Grant Meyer and Louise Hutchinson, all opposed the new review; only Meyer and Hutchinson opposed the policy changes as a whole. They came about as a result of a request to staff last March by council members meeting as the governance and legislation committee. The review determined the politicians were not adequately paid compared to their peers in similar-sized communities, and staff recommended the discrepancy be addressed by basing the calculation on the average paid in Pitt Meadows, Port Moody and Langley City. That calculation would have boosted the councillors’ pay by about $630 per year, and the mayor’s by just over $12,600. Last month, the committee opted instead

Hit-and-run injuries

Tossed from wheelchair Kevin Diakiw Black Press

The speeding car smashed into his motorized wheelchair, throwing Jonathan Forero’s frail body more than three metres, breaking his legs and shoulder. The vehicle then swerved, picked up speed and took off. Forero, 19, has endured brittlebone disease all his life, a genetic malady that makes his bones susceptible to fracture – the latest breaks bring the total he’s suffered to 33. He has broken bones by walking, or getting hit by a person Jonathan Forero or object, “but victim never by a car,” he said Wednesday from hospital. The collision occurred just before 6 p.m. Tuesday, when Forero and his girlfriend were heading down 95A Avenue near 133 Street. Forero had to use the road, as there wasn’t a sidewalk. He remembers travelling tight to the side of the road, and hearing a car come up behind him. “I didn’t think anything was going to happen, because I had so much space (for the car to pass).” The shock of being hit was soon followed by amazement at the sound of the car screaming away. “I thought the person was going to be a little more... I don’t know.” Witnesses told police the vehicle swerved after hitting Forero, sped down to 132 Street and took off. Forero says he holds no ill will toward the driver of the car. “I just want him to take responsibility for what he did.” Police are also eager to find the driver. Anyone with information is asked to call 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

A long-debated proposal for 97 apartments and 12 townhouses received final reading Monday evening by a divided White Rock council.

Three oppose 109-unit development

12-storey Vidal project gets go-ahead Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A controversial highrise proposed for Vidal Street is going ahead, following narrow approval by White Rock council Monday. Zoning and Official Community Plan amendments that facilitate construction of the 12-storey project received final reading on 4-3 votes, with Mayor Wayne Baldwin and Couns. Al Campbell and Helen Fathers opposed. Fathers said she couldn’t support the amendments after hearing from residents that the project is “too much, too dense, they don’t like it.” “I don’t believe this is the right time for it,” she said. The project, proposed for 1467-1519 Vidal St., includes 12 townhouse units and 97 apartments, underground parking and public green space. City staff in March had recommended it be rejected based on concerns with the proposed heights and densities, the loss of mature trees, the potential for traffic increase and the necessary relocation of a city-owned pathway.

At a public hearing in April, more than half of nearly two dozen people who spoke voiced support, predicting the development will help revitalize the city. Those opposed argued its height and density are inappropriate for the neighbourhood, and cited impacts to views, property values and a lack of infrastructure. In May, Baldwin gave up his role as meeting chair to speak against the project and comment on support heard during the public hearing. He described residents who spoke in favour as “well-organized” but noted in considering the input, “you also have to consider the source.” Many who voiced support have, in the past, stood firmly opposed to height and density in the city. Baldwin did not speak to the project on Monday, but had previously described it as premature and out of place for the area; a plan more suited for “five, 10 years down the road, maybe 20.” One councillor who supported the amendments expressed concern Monday that plans included in council’s agenda package show two

more units than the proposed 109. Coun. Louise Hutchinson was also concerned that a loading zone was not shown in what she described as “sketchy plans.” “If it’s just sloppy presentation then let’s clear up the sloppiness,” she said, suggesting the “housekeeping items” be dealt with by staff before council voted on them. Paul Stanton, the city’s director of planning and development services, and city manager Dan Bottrill both assured Hutchinson that more detailed plans will come at the development-permit stage of the process. A designated loading zone, Stanton noted, is now a standard requirement. Coun. Larry Robinson, speaking to the OCP amendment, said opportunities for this type of development will arise in the future and council needs to take care to “not just let anything be built.” It needs “characteristics that will help define it as distinct to White Rock,” he said. In addition to the zoning and OCP amendments, council voted 4-3 in favour of giving final reading to a necessary land-use contract discharge bylaw.

A former guard at the Surrey Pretrial Centre admitted taking a bribe. the fake gangster said he’d give Dang $2,000 if he brought a cellphone, charger and battery in. The corrections officer agreed, and during the conversation, also revealed he had previously brought inmates screwdrivers so they could open the electrical

outlets in their cells. Dang was arrested Nov. 14, 2012 at Surrey Pretrial. The phone and other items were found in a clear bag in his pocket. Sentencing was interrupted by a courthouse evacuation Monday. It is scheduled to proceed Dec. 2.

Ex-councillor helped other addicts i from page A1 At the end of it, there was always a smile and handshake; it was just the way the game was played. One of Robinson’s prouder victories on city council was having sizable green space dedicated as parkland, including Green Timbers, Sunnyside and Surrey Bend. “Surrey Bend was a big one which he doesn’t often get recognition for,” his wife, Susan Sanderson, said Monday, noting he was also proud of the work he did getting an ice rink in South Surrey. There was hard work on a personal level, as well. During his council tenure, Robinson developed a cocaine addiction. He was in for a rough ride in reaching his bottom. But on Canada Day 2006, he gave up booze and drugs. That year, he started a number of recovery homes called the Trilogy Houses, run by the Realistic Success Recovery Society. Since its inception, he hosted and helped about 700 struggling addicts through his houses. Trilogy House client John Lenec said without Robinson, he’d still

be on the street using the heroin he was addicted to for 14 years. Lenec, 50, said he has been clean and sober for 19 months, largely due to Robinson’s help. Lenec had no way to pay for recovery, and Robinson financed the first few months himself. Robinson raised recovery to an art form, Lenec said, adding he knew what was going on in each of the lives of the 30 to 40 men in his three recovery houses. The mood at the houses is extremely somber this week, though, Lenec noted, grieving may not have started yet – “Maybe in a week or two, when he doesn’t walk through that door.” Longtime former Surrey councillor Marvin Hunt – now MLA for Surrey-Panorama –  was elected the same year as Robinson, and he remembers how much his colleague loved to take contrary positions to strike some balance. “I think that’s one of the things he loved about politics, was the mental challenge of it all,” Hunt said Tuesday. “I just chalk it up to his hockey nature, that he loved

the sport of competition.” To his credit, Hunt said, Robinson kept his argument targeted at the issues, not personalities. By far and away, the largest impact Robinson had was while he was out of office, Hunt said. “The absolute tragedy of his addiction, and what it did to him and his family, and then for him to turn around and help others out of that same mess, that’s a tremendous legacy,” Hunt said. Robinson never really left the political scene, having run in recent municipal elections. He was also president of the nowdefunct Surrey Civic Coalition and, more recently, a new party called Surrey Matters, which is taking a run at council next fall. He is survived by his wife and two sons, Derek and Trevor. The public is welcome at a celebration of life being held Nov. 23 at 2 p.m. at the Valley View Funeral Home, 14660 72 Ave. Donations can be made in Robinson’s memory to the Realistic Success Recovery Society, 13516 80 Ave., Surrey, B.C.

Surrey ER docs still cover ICU ‘code blues’: officials

READY, SET SAVE...

Jeff Nagel Black Press

Fraser Health officials are denying reports that emergency doctors at Surrey Memorial Hospital had declined to provide afterhours coverage of cardiac arrests in the hospital’s intensive care unit (ICU). Dr. Urbain Ip, medical director at SMH, said discussions have been underway for some time between ER doctors and hospital officials over how best to reorganize coverage in light of worsening hospital congestion. ER doctors who are under growing pressure want their counterparts in ICU to begin handling their own department’s cardiac emergencies when possible, a break from the past practice of calling in ER staff. But Ip said the ER physicians have now agreed to continue covering ICU “code blue” calls to resuscitate cardiac arrest victims when the ICU team is unavailable. “The ER doctors have promised me that when they are requested to go to ICU to attend cardiac arrest they will not refuse, they will go upon request.” The ICU director at SMH, Dr. Grant McCormack, resigned his position, but Ip said he couldn’t speculate as to the reason. “I want to guarantee that Fraser Health Authority is not going to allow anything other than best patient care,” he said. Ip said he expects discussions about potential changes to continue on how best to handle cardiac emergencies. Fraser Health spokesperson Tasleem Juma called it an ongoing discussion and said it’s merely a coincidence the issue has boiled up in public after the opening of Surrey Memorial’s new ER, which is already overloaded to the point that patients are once again being treated in hallways.

Fraser Health denies that ER doctors at Surrey Memorial Hospital are declining after-hours coverage. “Patient care for cardiac arrest is not being compromised or changed,” she said. “This is about looking at, as the hospital grows and expands and there’s more demand, how to ensure that those services are being delivered in a timely way and how can they work co-operatively to make sure that continues to happen.” Dr. Adam Lund, a spokesman for emergency room physicians based at Royal Columbian Hospital, said ER doctors at SMH and other Lower Mainland hospitals are swamped. “We are chronically over-

Fraser lists $253 million a year as “corporate” costs in its service plan, while Vancouver Coastal spends around $296 million. Fraser’s corporate spending, at about 8.3 per cent of the overall budget, is the lowest share going to administration of any health region in the country, Murray said. Fraser has repeatedly tried to redesign its services in an ongoing search for health innovations to do more with less money. Murray called the review an exciting chance to get a fresh strategic view of the challenges and possible solutions. Vancouver Coastal includes Vancouver, the North Shore and Richmond, while Fraser Health covers the rest of Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley from Burnaby to Boston Bar.

A loss for all of us

T

he judgmental attitudes of our society are deeply ingrained. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team’s announcement Monday of the identification of the body of a woman discovered last week in a park on the Surrey-Langley border was – given the grim circumstances and the public’s right to know – done with as much taste and discretion as possible. The death of the woman in question is tragic fact. Her demise led to other facts about her life becoming public – that she was a sex-trade worker who was drug-dependent. Those facts shouldn’t – by all that’s right – serve as her only epitaph. It’s likely they will, at least in the minds of those who never knew her. It’s likely, too, that many of us who read the story had the same unspoken reaction. A sextrade worker – sure. Drug-dependent – of course. Body discovered in a park – naturally. But it’s when we think like that that we show our own want of compassion. For the loss of a human life should never be rationalized or accepted as understandable or natural. Even the terminology – “known to be living a high-risk lifestyle” – is, in itself, implicitly judgmental. Such terminology may be derived from observation; from bitter, first-hand, pragmatic experience of those who have seen far too many similar cases. But it can never be offered as tacit justification of a violent end. We only lately reached a point as a society when we have begun to understand that how a woman acts, or dresses or presents herself can never be seen as an excuse for a violent crime against her. We have drawn that line. But we need to draw another line when it comes to the death of a sex-trade worker. Instead of breathing a collective sigh of relief that the victim didn’t turn out to be a ‘normal’ suburban mother, child, sister or spouse, we should be reaffirming that, for our society, any homicide at all is unacceptable. There is not, nor can there ever be, anyone in a just society who is written off; or viewed as disposable. To descend to that level of insensitivity is to descend to the level of a Robert Pickton – and, arguably, it’s our own prejudices that allowed him to function as long as he did. The dead woman was a human being, and what course her life took, and why, is immaterial. By extension, she is mother, child, sister and spouse to us all.

Peace Arch News

It’ll stop them in their tracks Editor: Re: Brighter solution, Oct. 29 letters. In response to letter-writer Tony Roy’s point of views, I would say the train guardrail is effective as far as preventing pedestrians from wandering onto the danger zone without realizing it, day or night, especially if they are non-local visitors and are so drawn to the water on the other side of the track. To prevent people from knowingly trespassing onto the track, you would need a barbed-wire fence, not a change of the fence’s color. In the night time, the train’s headlight should be bright enough to alert any conscious trespasser of the approaching danger. Should one fail to heed the approaching bright light, unlikely would the person in danger be in a right state of mind to be aware of the presence of the guardrail, whatever colour it may be, and of the track itself, except at crossings with road. It would help if people accord the same amount of respect to rail track as they do to public roads. Fen Kong Liew, Surrey

Food for thought Editor: Re: Peace Arch News online question of the week, Oct. 10-16. PAN asked: “Would you consider a vegetarian diet?” I am wondering how many of the 59 per cent who responded that they would not consider a vegetarian diet would change their minds after watching one of the following documentaries on how their food is brought to their table. Just to name a few: Food Inc.; Earthlings; Forks Over Knives; and Gary Yourofsky’s Best Speech You Will Ever Hear. Or, conversely, if they had to function as other meat eaters do in nature – kill their own food. Sandy VanDeKinder, Surrey

Hunters in the cross-hairs Editor: Re: An easy, ethical hunting answer, Oct. 29 letters. The idiocy of the two letters extolling hunting demands a rebuttal. Letter-writer Lance Ponych pouts that as cats kill birds, why should he not massacre flocks of birds? But Felix kills out of pure instinct. He never says to himself (in catspeak): “Well it’s a nice day so I will just mosey out and deliberately kill a bunch of wildlife… for fun!” Letter-writer Michael J. Klaver jabbers about the tradition of hunting. But that was when hunting was

necessary to eat. Traditions are not forever. Traditional fox-hunting has been banned in numerous countries. Klaver seems obsessed with the word “ethical.” He uses it no less than six times. Unfortunately he does not explain what “ethical hunting” means. Bambi still dies slowly and painfully from the all-too-frequent wounding shot, whether fired by an “ethical” hunter or any other kind. My main disdain for hunting is the myth that it is a sport; which implies a contest that might be lost. Certain success is no contest. Note that polls show that over 98.7 per cent of all hunters would

abandon hunting if the prey could shoot back. David Poole, Surrey Q Letter-writer Michael J. Klaver trots out the old sophistry that hunting is OK because it has always been done. In fact he says it is “a proud Canadian tradition” – an indelible part of our culture. Mr. Klaver, tradition is not the great sanctifier you claim it is. If it were, we would still be burning witches, disenfranchising women, pitting dogs against one another, etc. Culture is no defence for cruelty. How any man can take pride in reducing a living animal to a bloody mass of fin or fur or feathers is

beyond the imagination. And then there is the use of the term “ethical hunting” - a dissembling misnomer of gargantuan proportions. Hunting is nothing more than cowardice in action. It can never be anything more no matter how you try to dress it up or disguise it. An animal is killed for a hunter’s pleasure. It is a death for no reason. And death for no reason is murder. Mr. Klaver, you end your letter by saying, “You live your life, and I will live mine.” It is a pity you that you seem to lack the compassion to extend that freedom to the animals you hunt. Perry Walker, Surrey

`

Human bodies and the soil cannot be remediated from this type of contamination.a Patricia Randall & Dorothy Randall

File photo

Letters writers have their eyes on coal delivered via train to ships in Delta (above) and planned for North Surrey.

Our leaders should take a breath An open letter to the City of White Rock. Last month the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer indicated the air we breathe – including its particulate matter – should now be classified as carcinogenic to humans. Then we found out from UBC researchers that chronic exposure to air pollution causes nearly nine times as many premature deaths in Canada as traffic crashes. These are no longer speculative concerns by the lay public, they are credible scientific conclusions. Many White Rock homes, including ours, are within the air shed of this life-threatening pollution originating from the rail line. Diesel-engine fumes and coal dust are of particular concern to the community because of the existing and proposed increased shipment of thermal coal from the U.S. through White Rock. The Corporation of Delta has already responded to these concerns in 2012 by implementing a ‘coal dustfall monitoring’ study. Their recently released findings show that adjacent to the BNSF rail line, the daily dustfall was three times above the B.C. air-quality guideline for average dustfall in residential areas. Furthermore, 65 per cent of this dustfall was found to be coal. Does the City of White Rock have any dustfall data pertaining to its own community? If not, are there plans for the city to do dustfall monitoring in the near future? Without such essential monitoring data, the City of White Rock has little information on which to base future decisions or recommendations concerning the public health and environmental issues of coal transport through its community. Ron U. Kistritz, White Rock Q An open letter to Port Metro Vancouver. We are writing to voice strong concern about the proposed plans to expand the Roberts Bank terminal and Surrey Fraser Docks. We have lived in the South Surrey/Crescent Beach area for more than 20 years, and have noted the increased rail activity through this area during this time, as the noise of their operations increasingly and frequently disturbs our sleep – even

though we live several miles east of the rail lines. In addition to the diminished quality of life, health and ability to function that these noise disturbances cause, new studies show that long-term interrupted sleep patterns can contribute to the development of dementia. Aside from this single human impact of disturbed sleep, further expansion of activity for the rail lines, or the Roberts Bank terminal or Fraser Surrey Docks would have exponential negative impact on the health of thousands in the nearby communities. Some of the 500 pounds of coal dust lost from each rail car of coal in transit through this area will either be inhaled by us or contaminate the soils of farms that they travel through – including the mercury and arsenic contaminants in this thermal coal. Human bodies and the soil cannot be remediated from this type of contamination; thus we become diseased, our local food becomes poison and food becomes scarcer and more expensive in this region. And beyond this, any attempts to spray down the coal in the cars just creates further contaminated material to have to deal with, increasing risk of contamination to the environment and all the myriad components of the various ecosystems which are integrated with each other around this region, including humans. Already in this past year, an accident occurred at the Roberts Bank terminal when part of its infrastructure was damaged by a ship. The conveyor system that carries coal to ships was severed, causing coal to be spilled into the surrounding ocean. Coal is toxic to eelgrass. Healthy eelgrass is fundamental to the functioning of these shoreline and intertidal ecosystems. Where will we get our seafood if the oceans are poisoned with coal? It is imperative to carry out, by an independent review panel, the highest level of environmental assessment of impacts of any expansion of these terminals, or for using them for transporting increased amounts of thermal coal or other petroleum products. Beyond that, we ask you to unequivocally oppose the expansion of the coal-transfer facility at Fraser Surrey Docks. Patricia Randall & Dorothy Randall, Surrey

Some fireworks still set off

Quiet Halloween: fire chief Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Surrey’s fire department received no Halloween-related calls last week, evidence firefighters say shows the city’s bylaw banning fireworks is working. Deputy Fire Chief Jon Caviglia said there were no reports of fires on Oct. 31. He acknowledged there were still fireworks being

set off, but nothing like before the bylaw was implemented in 2005. The year prior, Surrey firefighters were called out to 90 fires caused by fireworks on Halloween, and tallied up more than $120,000 in damages that night. Starting in 2005, a new fireworks bylaw required people to have a federal fireworks permit to purchase, possess or let off the

pyrotechnics. Meanwhile, Surrey RCMP were kept hopping on Halloween night, with about double the calls compared to a typical night. Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said there were 409 calls to the police for service and 374 of those required sending a cruiser. About half of those calls were Halloween-related.

BC Hydro crews work to replace a power pole. Replacement work has been ongoing this year.

Old power poles being replaced Work is ongoing to replace aging power poles in Surrey and White Rock. BC Hydro spokesperson Mora Scott said crews began digging and setting poles earlier this year as part of the utility’s maintenance program.

It will continue until next spring, by which time 700 poles throughout the two cities will have been replaced. Province-wide, more than 10,000 poles are being replaced. “More than 20 per cent of our wooden poles are more than 40

years old,” Scott explained. In some cases, the replacement work will require crews to disconnect power. If that is deemed necessary, efforts will be made to notify customers, Scott said. – Tracy Holmes

Surrey School District proposes boundary shifts

Input needed for changes Sheila Reynolds Black Press

Parents in three neighbourhoods of Surrey have until next week to give their input about proposed changes to school boundaries. The first shift would affect families near J.T. Brown Elementary (12530 60 Ave.), Martha Jane Norris (12928 66A Ave.), and Beaver Creek Elementary (6505 123A Ave.) The proposal is to shift a portion of J.T. Brown’s current catchment so as to split it between Martha Jane and Beaver Creek. The areas affected are those north of 64 Avenue. The changes, the district says, would help reduce overcrowding at J.T. Brown and make better use of space at the other schools, as well as shorten the distance to school for some kids and reduce the need to cross busy 64 Avenue from the south. A second suggested change aims to ease crowded conditions

and decrease the number of portables at Woodward Hill Elementary (6082 142 St.), by redirecting some students to North Ridge Elementary, near 134 Street and 62 Avenue. The proposal is to move a corner of Woodward’s current catchment south of 64 Avenue and east of King George Boulevard to within North Ridge’s boundaries. Another, three-part boundary proposal potentially affects four schools in the South Newton/ Cloverdale area – A.J. McLellan Elementary, Surrey Centre Elementary, George Greenaway and Martha Currie Elementary. The first part of the proposal would move a portion of A.J. McLellan’s catchment north of 60 Avenue, between 164 and 168 Streets, to Surrey Centre. The second move would send families living in neighbourhoods between Highway 10 and 60 Avenue and 170 and 175 Streets to George Greenaway instead of Surrey Cen-

tre. And a third possible shift would re-direct kids living south of Highway 10 and west of Highway 15 to Martha Currie instead of Surrey Centre. The changes would not affect current students at any of the schools, or their siblings, and they’d be entitled to attend their existing school in future years if desired. New students – either recently moved to the neighbourhoods or those entering kindergarten – would be asked to attend schools in the new catchment areas, if the boundary changes go ahead. Feedback is being accepted until Nov. 14. Comments can be submitted to school principals, who will forward them to the district. Any boundary shifts would take affect September 2014. Links to maps and details about the proposals can be found at www.surreyschools.ca; search the phrase “boundary changes.”

White Rock seeks volunteer insight White Rock residents wanting to take an active role in the city are encouraged to apply to volunteer on one of many committees. Applications for positions on seven committees – public art advisory, economic investment, environmental advisory, advisory design, board of variance, Outstanding Canadians on the Peninsula and cul-

tural activity – are being accepted through Nov. 21. Those interested are asked to submit a resume specifying their area of interest and outlining any relevant experience they would bring to the committee. Applications may be sent to city hall (15322 Buena Vista Ave.) or emailed to clerksoffice@whiterockcity. ca with “2014 Committee” in the subject line.

eginald Wallace Vose was monitoring the radar screen aboard River Class Frigate HMCS Port Colborne in the North Atlantic in 1944 when he spotted something. He was part of a six-vessel hunter-killer group, with the line of ships 2,000 yards apart, searching for German U-boats. A blip showed a large object that made for a good target. As the other ships on the line were called in, Port Colborne fired her hedgehogs – contactfuse mortar bombs that were more effective over a wide area than depth charges. The explosion was tremendous, practically lifting the frigate out of the water. Light bulbs blew out and much of the ships internal equipment

was damaged. “It had quite an effect on us,” recalls Vose, 89. The Port Colborne was damaged enough to need months of repairs in Belfast, Ireland. When Allied naval crews inspected the damage to their target, they discovered such things as a General Motors technical manual. It would take some time, but naval officials concluded the explosion came from the ammunition magazine of HMCS Blackwood, a Canadian frigate – not a German submarine – that was sunk by a U-boat the day before the Port Colborne arrived on the scene. Such was the fate of war. ••• Vose remembers growing up enthusiastic about ships. On

some weekends, he would bike with his father from White Rock to New Westminster and Vancouver just to look around the docks. He joined the navy in July 1941 at the age of 17. “I was a boy. But I got all patriotic and thought I’d join.” He took pride in that he wasn’t in the Navy Reserves, but the full-fledged Royal Canadian Navy (RCN). The only stipulation was a promise to stay for seven years – a contract he went on to renew. He trained in Vancouver and then Esquimalt, and passed through the Panama Canal on Christmas, 1943 on his way to war. Stationed in Londonderry, Northern Ireland, he would spend months doing escort duty on convoys, U-boat hunting, and

training on electronic equipment that was becoming more important on the military ships. In mid-1945, he was transferred to “the latest thing,” HMCS Ontario, a Minotaur Class light cruiser. Boarding on Malta and passing through the Suez Canal, “we were going out there with visions of fighting the Japanese, but then the A-bomb was dropped.” By the time the ship had reached Hong Kong, the war was over. ••• But it wasn’t to be his last. On 30 July 1950, three Canadian destroyers, HMCS Athabaskan, Cayuga and Sioux arrived in Sasebo, Japan, under orders to sail for Korean waters. Vose would spend the next i see page 12

The Crescent Beach Pipe Band joined veterans and cadets at Semiahmoo Shopping Centre Oct. 27.

Poppy campaign still needs support of community

‘More important than ever’ Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Proceeds from the 2013 poppy campaign will go to help young veterans who’ve had their benefits cut, local organizers say. “Legions are upset with the way the government has devastated the benefits,” said Doug Milne, past-president of the Crescent Beach Legion. “These young vets, they’re really getting stabbed in the back.” Milne was referring to the federal government’s decision to alter the way wounded soldiers are compensated, outlined in the New Veterans Charter. Veterans Affairs Canada describes the charter as “a more complete approach to helping our men and women injured in the line of duty.”

Key, notes information on the VAC website, “is that it shifts the focus from a lifetime of disability to encouraging ‘wellness’.” But Milne said the reality is it cuts benefits to new veterans by 95 per cent. Efforts are underway to resolve the issue. In September, Justice Gary Weatherill ruled a lawsuit filed against the government over its decision to alter the way wounded soldiers are compensated can proceed. A report by Veterans Ombudsman Guy Parent released last month calls for improvements to the New Veterans Charter, and criticizes accessibility of the Permanent Impairment Allowance, designed to compensate severely impaired veterans who can’t work.

Fifty-three per cent of such veterans do not receive the benefits, the report states. Milne said that lack of support is why this year’s poppy campaign is so vital. “It’s more important than ever,” he said. Local veterans launched the 2013 campaign with an afternoon event Oct. 27 at Semiahmoo Shopping Centre. The Crescent Beach Pipe Band marched veterans and cadets through the mall before performing a small concert in the food-court area. It went “absolutely fantastic,” Milne said. It’s hoped this year’s fundraising will outdo that of 2012, when a little more than $30,000 was raised. The funds also benefit local cadets programs, he noted.

The Athabaskan, with a crew of 206, would participate in escort, patrol and short bombardment duty on both sides of the Korean peninsula, at times being the “errand boy,” as Vose describes it, to the Mighty Mo – the USS Missouri, the legendary Iowa Class battleship on which the Japanese surrender took place in Tokyo Bay a few years before. Vose says being beneath the curtain of fire from the Missouri’s 16-inch guns – which bombarded the Korean coast several times – sounded like being under a freight train. The destroyer’s duties included night patrols among fishing junks on the Korean coast. Five other Canadian destroyers (HMCS Crusader, Huron, Iroquois, Nootka and Haida) replaced the Athabaskan and her two sister ships for the remainder of the war, which ended in 1953. Among the 26,000 Canadians participants in the Korean War, the were 1,558 casualties, including 516 dead. There

He would train on radar and other electronic equipment in both Canada and the UK, and served onboard ships including HMCS Niobe, Huron, Cornwallis, Nootka, Niobe II, Bonaventure, James Bay and Naden. He doesn’t get too philosophical about his military career or the nature of war, but admits that he did his job well. Although he moved from base to base over the decades serving, he had the time for a family (his wife, Phyllis, passed away in 2005), and has one granddaughter. Vose lives in North Delta with

his daughter, Anne-Margaret, a Surrey school administrator. ••• In 1951, Vose’s destroyer, the HCMS Athabaskan, was the last of the three-ship flotilla to return home to Esquimalt. By the time he arrived, the cheering crowds had departed. But 62 years later, there would be new recognition of his service. In January 2013, Vose received the Korean Peace Medal from (former) Consul General Yeon Ho Choi and the Korean War Veterans Association of Canada at the Korean Consulate in Vancouver. Today (Thursday) Vose is scheduled to speak to students Goldstone Park Elementary (6287 146 St.) during a Remembrance Week assembly.

Visitors invited to Surrey’s first Passive House

Eco-friendly home makeover Sarah Massah Staff Reporter

It’s not easy being green. But a South Surrey family is hoping to show the community it may not be as hard as once believed either. Teresa and Allan Hotell will be opening the doors of their Passive House this Sunday, Nov. 10. The title refers to a rigorous, voluntary standard for energy efficiency in a building, reducing its ecological footprint, Teresa explained. “It’s a commitment to the environment and it isn’t a lot more expensive than a regular house,” Teresa said. “We want to open people’s eyes to that.” Located at 1702 156A St., the first Passive House in Surrey features rainwater harvesting for toilet flushing, solar hot-water production, triple-pane windows and doors and a heat-recovery ventilation system, among other innovative features that result in 90 per cent less energy consumption than an average home. For Teresa, having an energyefficient home had always been a dream of hers that only became more important when she became

To honour those who defended our country and preserved our freedom, Valley View Memorial Gardens wishes to place a small Canadian Flag on every Veteran’s grave in Valley View Memorial Garden’s Cemetery. We need your help to know who these Veterans are. If your Father, Mother, Brother, Sister, Friend or Relative were Veterans, and interred at Valley View, please call us and we’ll ensure that his or her memory and service are not overlooked. There is no charge for the flag. It’s Valley View’s way of saying

Teresa and Allan Hotell will open their Passive House to visitors. a mother and, later, a grandmother. “I feel really connected to the earth. I feel that trees are living beings and we’re in a mutual relationship with them. I mean, they’re providing our oxygen,” she said. “We can’t survive without them. This planet would not be here without the trees. “I want my children to really appreciate that and my grandchildren to grow up with that.” The two-year process, which was done in collaboration with the Hotells and Marken Proj-

ects, has been a complicated task, Teresa said, with the duo working with the City of Surrey to navigate through the new building practices that went into their home. “It’s been a challenge,” Teresa admitted. “But I really want people to know that this can be done. And we’ve actually broken the ground. Now the City of Surrey knows something about it and hopefully it will be easier for the next person coming along.” The open house will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

NOVEMBER 11, 2013 Why do we wear a poppy in remembrance of our veterans? The poppy became a beloved and honoured symbol at the beginning of the 20th century and, even now, is worn proudly on the left lapel in memory of our war veterans. This is why, on November 11 — Remembrance Day—we honour the courage of those who gave their lives in wartime, sacrificing themselves for their country and for peace, by wearing this bright red flower close to the heart.

THANKS TO OUR VETERANS

creating favourable conditions for the poppies to flower. Once the war was over the limestone dust was absorbed and the poppies disappeared. SYMBOL OF LIFE AND OF HOPE The poppy campaign begins on the last Friday in October and continues until November 11. With the funds raised, the Royal Canadian Legion is able to give financial help to veterans of the Canadian Armed Forces who are in need and can subsidize healthcare establishments, research, the purchase of medical equipment and homecare services.

THE POPPY THAT FLOWERED ON SOLDIERS’ GRAVES During the Napoleonic wars at the beginning of the 19th century, these mysterious, blood-red flowers were seen growing on soldiers’ graves once the battlefield was deserted. Then they disappeared as mysteriously as they came. More than 100 years passed and, after the Great War, they flowered anew around the graves in Flanders, France. After various tests, it was discovered that the soil in this area was rich in limestone from buildings destroyed during the First World War,

emembrance Day on November 11 commemorates the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of the year 1918. This is when the Armistice was signed and is also the date marking the official end of the First World War. To commemorate this day, you are invited to participate in the annual Poppy Campaign, the Royal Canadian Legion’s main source of fundraising, which allows this organization to continue its work with veterans in need. Nowadays, Remembrance Day includes all wars that have occurred since the Great War. Indeed, there has not been a single day since 1918 that has not been marked by a war or armed conflict somewhere on this planet. So, to put an end to all wars, people across the country wear poppies in their lapels and decorate war memorials with wreaths and bunches of poppies on November 11.

In memory of those who fought so bravely

Why poppies? Because this red flower recalls the famous poem “In Flanders Fields,� written by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae during the First World War. This is the most frequently read and quoted poem about war. It is the mention of poppies in the first and last verses that has turned this flower into an emblem of remembrance and a symbol of new growth in the devastation left by war. We must all remember the terrible toll wrought by the First World War: the death of 16.5 million people, including 9.7 million military personnel. The Second World War, the bloodiest conflict in our history, saw the deaths of 60 million souls, one third of which were military personnel. Please visit www.veterans.gc.ca for more information about the Remembrance Day campaign.

First Capital Chorus will return to South Surrey for its 2013 Remembrance and Variety Show Nov. 9. The chorus will be joined by ‘King of the Ukulele,’ Ralph Shaw (below).

Arts Reporter

t’s a popular annual Remembrance tradition. The First Capital Chorus (the Langley Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society, which includes many Peninsula singers) will return to South Surrey with its 2013 Remembrance and Variety Show ‘We Will Remember’ – Saturday, Nov. 9 at 2 p.m. (matinee) and 7 p.m. at St. Mark’s Anglican Church, 12953 20 Ave. The versatile men’s chorus will be joined by the quartets Synchromesh and Mixed Company, as well as special guests Ralph Shaw (‘King of the Ukulele’) and piano-accompanist extraordinaire Kerry O’Donovan (evening show only) for a show revisiting melodies associated with Canada’s war decades, plus other variety performances. As always, it’s very much a family affair, chapter president Gordon Harris (also a member of Synchromesh, past senior champions of the society’s

Evergreen District ) said. He noted O’Donovan is the son of First Capital stalwart tenor Denny ‘O Donovan – whose rendition of Danny Boy is a popular highlight of the concert. “Kerry is becoming very wellknown – he was winner of the 2007 Red Robinson Talent Search at the PNE, and he’s very much in demand as a musical director for professional theatre shows. He sings well and he can certainly play a piano.” He adds that Shaw – a long-time audience favourite – is also a past ‘barbershop’ harmony singer. Those who’ve enjoyed his blend of ukulele-playing and cheeky humour should expect a slightly different, but none-theless entertaining, Shaw this time around, he said. “He’s getting more suave and elegant in his presentation as time goes by.” Keeping up the family theme, First Capital veteran John West’s daughter Barb is a member of the Mixed Company quartet.

You can expect to see more ‘mixed’ performances in future, Harris said, pointing out that the First Capital Chorus has all but dropped the ‘barbershop’ – a hold-over from early 20th century harmony singing – from its title. “We describe ourselves as an a cappella chorus; a bonding place for men who love to sing; but we’re adding the opportunity for

women to sing with us, if they sing tenor only,” he said. Harris admits that the chorus is “in a rebuilding stage” as attrition inevitably shrinks the ranks. “The average guy joining us is in his 60s,” he said, adding that the chorus faces some of the same challenges as service clubs such as the Kinsmen and Rotary in an increasingly time-committed, money-driven world. “Where are they young guys? Many of them are working two jobs.” Even so, Harris is optimistic that the chorus will be able to maintain and expand on its heritage, attracting new singers to its regular Thursday night practice sessions at Langley’s First Christian Reformed Church. “Four-part harmony is so much fun,” he said. “We do this because we love to do it, and we also like to assist in the community, We also do a Christmas chorus show that has raised well over $100,000 in the last four years for the Christmas Bureau.”

The annual Remembrance show has been evolving as the Second World War generation becomes fewer and fewer. Choices of songs now reflect the many who served in the Canadian forces in Korea and in peacekeeping roles in other conflicts since. “Last year our theme was Afghanistan – we have troops all over the world facing complications every day.” Harris recalls his own father spent 20 years in the armed forces following Second World War, and he, himself is proud of his service as a boy soldier in Chilliwack at the age of 16. “It was a good opportunity for someone to expand himself and learn the importance of teamwork,” he said. “That’s what a chorus is, after all – teamwork.” Tickets ($20, $15 seniors and students) are available at Keith Ridge Men’s Wear, Pelican Rouge Cafe and Ocean Park Pizza and Village Pub.

Remembrance Day performance on Nov. 10

Stella Maris to honour vets Alex Browne Arts Reporter

Stella Maris Singers’ first ever Remembrance concert, ‘For Peace’ (this Sunday, Nov. 10, at 3 p.m., Good Shepherd Church, 2250 150 St.) will conclude with a fitting symbol. “At the end our choir members will come down and lay their poppies on the Remembrance Day wreath in the church,” said Stella Maris founder and director Trudi Stammer. “Poppies will also be available for the audience, and those that wish can lay their poppy on the wreath as well.” While the concert will feature readings of John McCrae’s famous In Flanders Fields, and Walt Whitman’s A Dirge of Two

Veterans and the playing of The Last Post – as a way of remembering and honouring those who have given their lives in war – the focus will also be on the title concept, “hope for an eventual peace in our world,” Stammer said. “When we look over our repertoire, a common thread throughout is the concept of peace – within ourselves and with others,” she noted. “In today’s world, the phrase ‘peace starts with each one of us’ is so true… with all the violence perpetrated on our world and its peoples through wars of one kind or another, we still haven’t learned how to stop this.” A carefully-chosen repertoire reflecting the theme includes  We Rise Again by Canadian Poet and

songwriter Leon Dubinsky; For the Fallen by Douglas Guest; For Everything A Time by Joseph Martin; and Goin Home from Antonin Dvorak’s New World symphony. Regular Stella Maris soloists Anna Boots and Kiel Magis will be featured in Pie Jesu and Benedictus by Karl Jenkins, from his Mass for Peace and Requiem; while Magis and the choir will be highlighted in Josh Groben’s You Raise Me Up. Stammer adds that a “powerful” powerpoint visual presentation will accompany the singing. “I think it will be very moving and beautiful,” she said.

Store Wide Savings Prices Effective: Sun., November 10th to Sat., November 16th, 2013

Tickets are available now for this month’s Surrey Youth Theatre Company (SYTCO) production of Little Women at Earl Marriott Secondary’s Wheelhouse Theatre. Acted by a cast of 13- to 17-year-old student players, the heartwarming play was adapted from the classic semi-autobiographical Louisa May Alcott novel – chronicling enduring family values in New England through the heartache and hardships of the American Civil War period – by Marisha Chamberlain, and is directed by SYTCO founder and artistic director Susan Pendleton. It’s the story of the four March sisters, ambitious Meg (JodiAnn Wang), tomboyish Jo (Cassandra Strain),

retiring Beth (Kana Saarni) and headstrong Amy (double-cast between Sofie Levy and Julia Kelleway); their devoted mother and moral guide Marmee (Marina Cyr) and boynext-door Theodore ‘Laurie’ Laurence (Dennis Sorescu). Also featured are Tia Berezan as housekeeper Hannah, Shandel Riedlinger as critical and persnickety Aunt March, Frankie Xie as John Brooke, Zachary Wood as Mr. March and a special appearance by Norm Pettersson as Mr. Laurence. Showtimes are Saturday, Nov. 23 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 24 at 2 p.m., at 15751 16 Ave. Tickets ($12) are available from 604-8053855 or by emailing sytco@shaw.ca

Seahawks soar to PAN crown Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

NEXT HOME GAMES

For the second time in three years, the Seaquam Seahawks are champions at the Peace Arch News Classic. The Delta-based Seahawks clawed the senior girls volleyball title away from the G.P. Vanier Towhees Saturday at Semiahmoo Secondary, winning the South Surrey tournament – which was in it 24th year – in two straight games (25-17, 25-18). Seaquam – which won the 2011 tournament over Surrey Christian – has been in three straight PAN Classic finals, having lost last year’s title tilt to Elphinstone. The Seahawks return to the top was a relatively easy ascent, as the highly ranked AAA team – they were ranked No. 2 at the end of October – rolled through the round-robin portion of the tournament undefeated, with their biggest test coming against Parksville’s Ballenas Secondary,

who took the Seahawks to a third game before Seaquam prevailed. Seaquam then knocked off the Elgin Park Orcas in semifinals Saturday to advance to the final game against the Towhees. Elgin Park – who won a PAN Classic title back in 2005 – finished in the third spot this year, defeating Ballenas (25-19, 25-19) in the third-place game. Other local teams in the 28-team field included Earl Marriott Secondary’s junior girls team, which placed seventh; White Rock Christian Academy and Clayton Heights, who tied for 11th; Semiahmoo Totems’ junior team, 26th; and Semiahmoo, 27th. Seaquam’s Amy Davidson was named the tournament’s most valuable player, while the tourney all-stars were Elgin Park’s Darby Dunn and Sally Mathews, Ballenas Secondary’s Kayla Parhar, Seaquam’s Leah Martin and two Vanier players – Karly Gunther and Meg Ireland.

Peewee team beats North Surrey

Fraser Downs Horse Racing Titans’ squad Breeders Classic – Nov. 11, 2013 in playoffs Nick Greenizan

Atom

The White RockSouth Surrey Titans’ peewee football team punched its ticket to the Vancouver Mainland Football League playoffs with a big win last week over the North Surrey Hawks. In their final regularseason game of the year on Oct. 30, the Titans knocked off the North Surrey 22-6 and finished the schedule with a 6-4 won-loss record. Playoffs begin later this month.

The Titans’ atom squad pitched a shutout Sunday at Cloverdale Athletic Park, beating the Cloverdale Lions 16-0. The South Surrey team will wrap up its season this weekend in the President’s Cup, at a yet-to-be-determined location.

Sports Reporter

Flag The White RockSouth Surrey Titans’ offence exploded for five touchdowns Sunday in a 15-9 road win over the Richmond Raiders at Minoru Park. Ryder Kusch and Alexander McCrank scored two touchdowns apiece for the victorious Titans, while Sebastian Maisonville rounded out the scoring with a major score of his own. The Titans’ flag team wraps up its schedule Saturday in the VMFL Flag Jamboree in Coquitlam, in which 14 flag-division squads from across the Lower Mainland will play four half-hour games each.

Bantam In nine-player-perside bantam action, the Titans dropped a road contest in Coquitlam. Battling through torrential rain, White Rock-South Surrey was 27-6 to the Coquitlam Chargers at Coquitlam Town Centre Stadium Saturday.

Midget A win Sunday on Vancouver Island put the Titans’ oldest team in contention for a playoff spot. The Titans – who have a 3-6 record and sit seventh in the VMFL standings – have one final regularseason this weekend, at home against the North Delta Longhorns, before playoff seeds are determined. Last weekend, at Victoria’s Westhills Stadium, the Titans edged the Victoria Spartans – who’ve now lost six straight – 17-10.

Helping Pets live Healthier, Happier Lives.

Surrey fourth in BCHL’s Mainland Division

Eagles earn weekend split Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Third periods continue to play a large role in the outcome of the Surrey Eagles’ season. A week after losing twice due to third-period collapses – giving away points to BC Hockey League rivals West Kelowna Warriors and the Chilliwack Chiefs –  the Eagles split a pair of home games at South Surrey Arena, losing 3-2 to the Prince George Spruce Kings Friday before bouncing back to defeat the Alberni Valley Bulldogs Saturday night, 4-2. Both games came down to the final 20 minutes. On Friday, the Eagles and Spruce Kings were tied 1-1 after 40 minutes of play, but the visitors took the lead in the third, when Chad Staley scored an unassisted marker midway through the period to break the tie, and though Eagles’ forward Nathan Renouf retied the game just 41 seconds later, the Kings escaped with the win when Jeremiah Luedtke scored with 2:36 left in the game. It was the third game in a row that the Eagles lost a game in which they led, or were tied, heading into the third period. The Eagles’ other goal came off the stick of Nic Pierog, whose shorthanded marker at 9:28

Garrett James photo

Austin Ferguson and his Eagles’ mates went 1-1 last weekend. of the first period opened the scoring. Luedtke scored on the power-play for Prince George in the second to tie the game at 1-1. Devon Fordyce was tagged with the loss for the Eagles, stopping 31 of 34 shots he faced. A day later, however, the Eagles appeared to shake their recent third-period struggles by exploding for three goals in the final frame, en route to a comeback victory over Alberni Valley. Surrey did not get off to the best of starts in front of the home fans, as the Bulldogs jumped on the home team early to take a 2-0 lead by the 11:33 mark of the first, on goals from Zak Bowles and Zach Funke, but the Eagles cut the deficit to 2-1 early in the second period when Danton

Heinen scored two minutes into the frame. And in the third period, the Eagles took over. Heinen scored his second goal of the game – and his sixth of the season  – on the power play, to make it 2-2, and the two squads stayed deadlocked until the final six minutes, when Brett Mulcahy gave the Eagles a 3-2 lead – with Heinen garnering an assist. Michael Roberts added the insurance marker in the final minute. Fordyce was again in net for Surrey, stopping 25 shots to earn his third win since joining the Eagles late last month. As has been the case for much of the last month, the Eagles sit fourth in the BCHL’s Mainland Division, but the gap between them and the first-place Langley Rivermen continues to grow. The Rivermen, winners of four consecutive games, are now 11 points up on the Eagles, who sport an 8-11-1-0 record. The Eagles play a rare midweek tilt against the Coquitlam Express Wednesday at the Poirier Sports and Leisure Centre, before hitting the ice for a two-game home-and-home series against Chilliwack. On Friday, the two squads will play at South Surrey Arena, and Saturday will square off at Chilliwack’s Prospera Centre.

GET GEARED UP! One of the major fundraisers that keeps volunteer safety personnel operating on local mountains occurs Nov. 16-17 in Abbotsford. The annual Canadian Ski Patrol's (CSP) Winter Extreme Ski Show and Swap sees about 10,000 pieces of ski and snowboard equipment valued at approximately $1 million on consignment at the Ag-Rec building, selling for significant savings over new, said Denis Dion, swap manager. "You can completely outfit yourself or your family members for under $100," he said. Everything from boots to boards will be on hand, and each piece is safety inspected. Any helmets for sale are brand new. "We have extreme selection and extreme pricing." Nearly 95 per cent of the equipment is still new – just last year's models.

Friday November,

7–9 pm - Public

"We don't know exactly how much we'll be getting until the vendors show up," he added. The swap has been running since the late 1970s, said Dion, who took on the event chair position in 1994. From its humble beginnings in a church basement, the swap grew and needed more space. They went from the basement to an auditorium, then Tradex and now the AgRec building. Between the Abbotsford event, and a similar one in Vancouver, these fundraisers generate enough money

– about $100,000 – to keep CSP volunteers on the slopes in locales such as Hemlock, Manning and Seymour, where they are often the first responders to anyone who has a mishap while skiing inbounds. Any off-the-trail emergencies are handled by search and rescue teams. CSP funds its own first aid

It is important you like the looks of the second most expensive purchase of your life. However, make sure it serves its intended purpose by answering some questions. Typically, how many people do you need to transport and how far? Is there enough stowage space in the cabin and the trunk or luggage compartment? Do you need V8 power or will an economical four-cylinder suffice? Now go and kick some tires at a variety of dealerships and consider multiple brands because they all have much to offer.

The 2014 Toyota Tundra features a new body style and is powered by either a 4.6 or 5.7-litre engine. L/100 km (city/highway) it keeps the money in your wallet a little longer. 2014 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel This is a much-anticipated truck from Dodge and one I am anxious to see. It has a 3.0 L V6 diesel engine with a torqueflite eight-speed transmission. Not only will it give you 420 lb-ft of torque and plenty of towing capabilities, it will also reduce CO2 emissions and run on B20 Biodiesel. It’s a game changer. 2014 Toyota Tundra New body style this year, impressive hood and fender design. Toyota has also included a Western themed truck

called the 1794 Edition, which happens to be the founding year of a Texas ranch where the Tundra plant is now situated. This truck’s interior is covered with Saddle tan brown leather seats and rich maple wood grain panels throughout. The Tundra is powered by a 4.6 Litre or a 5.7 Litre engine. Can it compete with the big boys? – This is the year to see. 2014 RAM ProMaster After a long run with the Dodge fullsize RAM van there was a void in the marketplace for a spacious cargo van, a void that was quickly gobbled up by the Mercedes Sprinter and the Nissan NV.

Based on the Fiat Ducato, this van has some RAM branding of its own and is available in a wide range of wheelbase options and two roof heights. Engine choices will be the Penastar 3.6 Litre V6 or the turbocharged 3.0 litre EcoDiesel four cylinder engine. There is plenty of excitement around this vehicle. If you want to talk trucks or chat about what might make your truck ‘purty’, please drop me a line. I would also like to see pictures of what you have done to your truck in the way of customization. ian.harwood@drivewaybc.ca

Fun for the right price A vehicle doesn’t have to be exorbitantly expensive, have mega horsepower or a fancy Italian badge on it to be fun to drive. In fact, a lot of people seem to agree with that statement too, since there are a few pocket rockets available on the market that might not compete for the top power specs, but can certainly get the party started.

Ford Fiesta ST ($24,499) If its exterior colour, say the one clad in Green Envy, doesn’t catch your eye, perhaps its exhaust note will. When you rev 1.6L, The 2014 Ford Fiesta ST. 4-cylinder, turbocharged, EcoBoost engine of the Fiesta ST, you’ll probably turn some wheelbase cutie is more practical than the heads. Yes, it’s a subcompact but it doesn’t pint-sized version and has more room. And feel like it when you’re working through two more doors! the gears of the six-speed manual transPowering it is a 1.4L, four-cylinder, MultiAir mission.

You just might make

Mazda3 Sport (starts at $15,995) For the 2014 model year, Mazda completely overhauls their number-one selling sedan and hatchback: the 3. Expect more mature (but not dated) styling, a driver-focused cabin and a host of technological gadgetry that makes staying “connected” behind the wheel more user friendly. Of course, without trying to take away focus from the act of driving. Among its features, you’ll find brand new interior and exterior styling along with the their high compression ratio engines, better known as SKYACTIV. Two engines and transmissions are offered. There’s the 2.0L, 4-cylinder SKYACTIV engine with a six-speed manual transmission or an available six-speed automatic transmission- available on either the base GX or mid-grade GS models. It produces 155 horsepower. Then there’s a 2.5L, four-cylinder SKYACTIV engine for the GT trim, which only comes with a six-speed automatic. It generates a healthy 184 horsepower. Either is a treat to drive.

Toyota Corolla (starts at $15,995) No, you’re not reading that wrong. I did include the 2014 Toyota Corolla on my list. Yes, it’s like automotive bread and butter; you always know what you’re getting and it’s very predictable. But with a complete overhaul for 2014, you could say the Japanese manufacturer has added some jam on top to make it sweeter. New styling makes it more desirable to the eyes. It’s still not as exciting as most of its competitors but the 1.8L, 4-cyinder does a bang up job of delivering 132 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque. The cabin is quiet and I’ll hand it to Toyota for matching it with a CVT transmission that’s just fabulous.

Kia Soul (starts at $16,995) Kia’s box-mobile continues to deliver strong sales despite angularly-shaped vehicles becoming a trend of the past. Why? Because it has personality. Describing it in one word, I’d say it’s funky. And now, the all-new Soul is built on a bigger platform, increasing legroom up front and in the rear. It’s also quieter on the road when revving its 1.6L, four-cylinder engine. There’s also a 2.0L 4-cylinder available with 164 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque. alexandra.straub@drivewaybc.ca

also significantly lighter and safer. The base engine will be a new turbocharged 1.8L engine with 170 hp but don’t worry the TDI diesel is carried over. The sportier GTI trim is fantastic, with an estimated 225 hp in the Canadian model, thanks to a new 2.0L turbo engine. The interior materials used inside are almost Audi quality. No price yet but building these new cars inside the NAFTA zone will save money and that will be reflected in the price.

The base engine is a 2.4L 4-cylinder with 184 hp or the optional 3.2L V6 with 271 hp, for just $1,300 more, offering good value. Not to worry Jeep fans, this new Cherokee is available with three AWD systems.

The Honda Accord Hybrid is the first full-hybrid from Honda. Its unique two-motor powertrain operates in three distinct driving modes in which the Atkinson-cycle engine is completely de-coupled (EV), used as an electrical generator (Hybrid) or drives the wheels (Engine). The result is incredibly good fuel economy, considering this is a fully equipped (including leather and nav), big sedan. The under-hood powertrain gymnastics are

The hybrid version of the new Infiniti Q50 offers 354 net horsepower making it a high-performance sport sedan. Impressive propulsion comes from the combined efforts of a 3.5-litre 24-valve DOHC aluminum-alloy V6 gas engine and a 50 kW electric motor that’s rated at 67 horsepower, plus an innovative one-motor/ two-clutch motor control system. The Q50 Hybrid is available in both rear-wheel drive and what Infiniti calls Intelligent All-Wheel Drive. Precise handling is provided by its four-wheel independent multi-link suspension and an innovative Direct Adaptive Steering with five handling modes.

first Volkswagen hybrid; it’s the first hybrid with a turbocharged gas engine and a rapid-shift seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox (DSG), instead of the usual CVT automatic. A compact lithium-ion battery pack also takes up less trunk space and even allows a pass-through feature (with fold-down rear seats) for longer items. Preserving Jetta’s sport-sedan qualities, the hybrid’s electric motor boosts powertrain performance and optimizes fuel economy. A clever “power meter” on the instrument panel translates what’s happening under-hood into an easy-to-understand driving efficiency gauge.

Willoughby Town Centre already thriving in Langley By Kerry Vital

Willoughby Town Centre celebrated its grand opening on Sept. 21, but the neighbourhood has been extremely popular with Langley residents for much longer than that. Loblaw’s Your Independent Grocer, Noma Sushi, Town Centre Liquor, Sassy Nails and several other stores are already

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

operating, while other businesses will soon open up shop. “This is very much a growing community,� says Hugh Carter, vice-president of community and commercial development for Qualico, one of the driving forces behind Willoughby Town Centre. “There are not only major tenants, but also a good collection of independents as well.� Eventually there will be a variety of shops and services available, including a building devoted mainly to medical and dental offices, as well as a pharmacy, yoga studio and a variety of boutiques. Willoughby Town Centre will also include a residential

component. The first phase is Kensington, a 65-unit apartment building. Other projects are planned for the future. Willoughby Town Centre joins South Surrey’s Morgan Crossing and West Vancouver’s Park Royal as “lifestyle centres� with residential and commercial space. “We believe in these walkable communities,� Carter says. “There’s a broader appeal here that I think is unique in the marketplace.� “The whole idea is to be pedestrian-friendly,� says Diane Zarola, sales and marketing manager for Qualico. “We want it to be a gathering place.� John Johnson, owner of Town Centre Liquor, is very happy with his decision to open up shop in Willoughby Town Centre. “It’s a real country setting with a downtown flavour,� he says, adding that he’s happy that the store can be in the neighbourhood from the beginning. “This area is growing so quickly. It’s really quite amazing.�

Marcon’s Heywood on the Park showcases Classic Modern architecture in a beautiful location beside a 39.5-acre park in North Vancouver. Laminate ooring, nine-foot ceilings and oversized windows are just a few of the amazing features.

Park-side living at Marcon’s Heywood on the Park By Kerry Vital

If you’re looking for a home that’s as beautiful as the 39.5-acre park it’s named after, you need look no further than Heywood on the Park, Marcon’s condominium project in North Vancouver that showcases great design and a fantastic location. “You’re literally on the edge of the park,� says sales manager Wendy Pirie. “The park is on two sides of the building, so you’ll never have buildings there. There’s retail and transit

on the other two sides; it’s really unique to have all of that.� Curb appeal is abundant at Heywood on the Park, with its Classic Modern architecture designed by NSDA Architects. Ranging from approximately 538 to 1,184 square feet, the one-, two- and three-bedroom homes are available in a variety of spacious floorplans. Among the luxurious features you’ll find at Heywood on the Park is laminate flooring throughout the main living areas and ninefoot ceilings (eight feet in the bathrooms). The oversized windows optimize natural light even on the darkest of days. “These are extremely bright suites,� Pirie says. “They don’t feel like condos.� The kitchens are fit for any budding gourmet, with their stainless-steel appliances, solid quartz countertops and full-wrap series cabinetry in Frosty White Gloss,

complemented by accent cabinets in squareedge Brookside Whitewashed Oak or Brookside Veneer Teak. Select homes include full-height pantries with a built-in microwave and a USB charging station. The bathrooms are relaxing, with their own solid quartz countertops and a deep soaker tub. The tub and shower surround is accented by Calacatta stone, complementing the Arctic White tiles. A floating mirror with polished chrome accent lighting shows you in your best light, while the warm grey porcelain tile floor is elegant and contemporary. The best feature of the homes at Heywood on the Park is the amazing views of the North Shore mountains or city (in some plans). This is accentuated by the generous patios, decks and terraces in every home. “These terraces are just huge,� Pirie says. Heywood on the Park’s location offers easy access to the rest of the Lower Mainland,

as well as schools, dining, recreation and shopping all within walking distance. On-site, you’ll find an amenity lounge with a patio. Marcon has a well-established reputation for gorgeous homes and great customer service, something that Pirie says has been bringing people into the sales centre. “They are there for you after the purchase,� she says. “They’ve built on the North Shore before. They’re top-notch.� Homes at Heywood on the Park start at $288,900.

HOWEVER YOU DEFINE COMMUNITY, WE CALL IT AN EASY WAY TO MEET AND CONNECT WITH YOUR NEIGHBOURS. It’s just one of the many reasons residents love calling Morgan Crossing home. It could be at the chalk art festival on Main Street (see below!), or one of the many other events, like movie nights in the summer or resident parties. How about chatting with fellow dog owners at the Morgan Crossing Dog Park, or meeting during a class or workout at Steve Nash Sports Club. Or just see and meet lots of the people who live and work at Morgan Crossing… and maybe even ask out your cute neighbour, Amy.

KAPTY, Nick Aug. 9, 1931 - Oct. 9, 2013 It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Nick Kapty. Nick was predeceased by his wife Eileen. He is survived and sadly missed by his current wife Joan, sisters Nellie de Bruycker and Pearl Wood, his stepsons Peter and Carl Frey and his stepdaughter Valarie Green. Nick is also sadly missed by his seven step grandchildren, his ten step great grandchildren, his one step great great grandchild, his remaining family and many friends. At his request his ashes will be spread at Sechelt’s shore and there will be no service.

Margaret passed away peacefully surrounded by loving family. Survived by her devoted husband of 38 years Doug, Margaret is lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her children, Ian (Kerry), Leah, Kevin (Andrea) and her granddaughter Hayley as well as extended family and friends. We will remember her for her love, devotion and dedication to family and appreciation for life. Born and raised on Vancouver Island, she later moved to the mainland to raise her family. She cherished time in her garden, enjoyed reading and treasured time spent with friends and family; Hayley has been at the centre of Margaret’s world for the last 9 years and they have brought much joy into each others’ lives. Volunteering in her community, doing flower arranging at the church, and helping at school with children’s reading gave her much joy. As her children’s number one fan, Margaret was always supporting them through all of their activities. She enjoyed many summers spent on the water with friends and family. Margaret made any situation fun; she was such a positive influence on every life she touched. When you were with Margaret she always gave you her full attention; you left a better person for having known her. Margaret’s strength, courage, dignity and determination are an inspiration; she would not allow us to share any of her pain but would always share her smile. When she smiled her eyes twinkled; we have been truly blessed to have our lives touched by such an amazing person and Mother. We are going to miss her so much! The family would like to thank all of her friends that provided support and prayers during these last years and months. The family appreciates the compassionate care provided by the staff of the N52 Ward at Surrey Memorial Hospital, the Home Care Nurses, and Dr. Ursula Lee. A church service followed by a Celebration of Life is scheduled for Saturday, November 9th at 1pm at The Crescent United Church. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Margaret’s memory to the BC Cancer Foundation.

Mira, Matteo, Norah and Parker.

He also stayed in touch with and will be missed by his many nieces and nephews. Ivan (Dad) was born and raised on a farm in Vulcan Alberta to Mae and Robert Todd. After high school he joined the RCAF. While stationed in Moncton New Brunswick, he met Catherine and they were married in Dec 1946. After his honorable discharge from the service, he attended UBC where he graduated with a Commerce Degree in 1950. After graduation he worked in the lumber industry as a buyer and wholesaler. He was a natural entrepreneur and a tireless worker. He started his own lumber business, stayed involved in farming, and pursued mining interests. After retiring, he operated an art gallery, and was active in the RCAF Air Crew Association. He was an avid gardener and was always up for a game of tennis or bridge. He will be cremated at Victory Memorial in South Surrey. Ashes will be interned at Langley Lawn Cemetery with Catherine and also spread across “The Rocks” on the farm where he grew up in Vulcan. Ivan’s family would like to extend their most sincere appreciation to the staff at Delta View Life Enrichment Centre ... Their conscientious and tireless work to take care of Dad was much appreciated. A Celebration of Life will be held on November 15, 2013 from 12:30 to 15:30 at Hazelmere Golf and Tennis Club, South Surrey, BC In lieu of flowers, donations to the BC Alzheimer’s Association would be appreciated.

OBITUARIES

McGregor MCGREGOR, Nell (nee Gudmundson) February 17, 1928 – November 04, 2013

  If you were lucky enough to have known Nell/Nellie then you knew how much she loved life and made sure laughter was in her life. Her love and pride for her family and value she placed on friendships were second to none. Beth & Hannes Gudmundson raised their daughter to have a strong work ethic, a sense of adventure, and a kind and compassionate heart. Mom graduated as a R.N. from Grey Nun’s Hospital (Regina) in 1950 and her passion for nursing continued until her retirement in 1988.  She met her husband, Doug, while working at the hospital in Central Butte Sk. and they raised their two children in this community they loved. Doug established McGregor’s Travel Agency, which allowed them to pursue their love of travel. They organized many tours throughout the world – so many friendships, so much fun and wonderful memories! They retired to White Rock B.C. in 1995 and Nell developed friendships through her volunteer work with the Peace Arch Hospital Auxillary, her baking, sewing business, cribbage, bingo, traveling and trips to the Casino! She would return to “the Butte” every summer after Doug’s passing in 2005 to enjoy fishing, friends, family, and football (Go Riders!). Her “adventure” (her words) with pancreatic cancer was difficult but through it all she remained Nell; more concerned with the impact it was having on others than what it was doing to her. Our heartfelt thanks to those who supported both, us and Mom, through this challenging time. To the team at Peace Arch Hospice, you are ALL incredible! Dr. Lowe, our parents thought the world of you and the care and compassion that we saw you give to them has meant so much to us. Brother Jack (Marge), son Rob (Karen), daughter Ann (Greg) and the grandchildren Gavin, Carley, Taylor, Kyler, and Alison will have many special memories of a very special person who loved them dearly. The grandkids always gave her something to smile about and to be proud of. Mom, it has been our pleasure and privilege to help you complete this journey we call life. As by your wishes your body will be donated to UBC Faculty of Medicine, and no funeral service. Your request to your friends and family is for them to perform a random act of kindness for someone – something you did often to make a difference. We trust that your memory will ensure this kind action from all. Forever in our hearts, Rob, Ann, and Families.

Referendum on TransLink taxes overshadows conference

Transit ‘Yes’ forces go on defensive Jeff Nagel

Ex-TransLink CEO hopeful for solution

Black Press

Speaker after speaker at a regional transportation conference last week called for a massive expansion of transit in Metro Vancouver and urged the province to provide the leadership to ensure it happens. The Oct. 31 Moving The Future conference in Vancouver drew 500 academics, engineers, economists, politicians and others. Presenters warned traffic jams will throttle the economy unless a solution to congestion is found and outlined many advantages of transit investment, from more affordable housing to a healthier population. Urban Futures demographer Andrew Ramlo noted the Lower Mainland’s population, from Squamish to Chilliwack, is Gil Peñalosa set to grow 56 per cent to 4.3 million by 2046. If the region doesn’t build more transit and make better use of the infrastructure it already has, he said, it faces a “gridlocked” future. High real estate prices already deter people and businesses from locating in the Vancouver area, Michael Goldberg delegates heard, and a failed transportation system will render the region less competitive and livable. “If we design our cities around cars what do we get? More cars,” said Gil Peñalosa, a keynote speaker and advocate for healthy cities. “It’s like trying to put out a fire using gasoline.” The conference came against the backdrop of a looming referendum on transit investment that Metro Vancouver mayors fear may fail and run the expansion agenda off the rails for years. Vancouver’s Gregor Robertson said defeat would be “disastrous.” Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts said better transit is the only way to get more single-occupant vehicles off the road. A show of hands in the room revealed the vast majority don’t think the referendum will pass. “If anyone thinks a referendum is winnable, I’m amazed,” SFU City Program Director Gordon Price said, adding the province’s decision to force the vote on the region reflects a “crisis of leadership.” The question has not yet been decided by the province, but others in the room saw the gathering as a chance to build an alliance of leaders to campaign in support of the expected vote to raise billions in taxes to build new transit lines. The problem, many delegates admitted privately, is that the academics, business

Former TransLink CEO Tom Prendergast, who took over New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority just prior to Hurricane Sandy, was a presenter at the Moving The Future conference. leaders, planners and other elites present don’t hold a majority of the vote. And they concede they face broad public opposition to more taxes of any kind. It doesn’t help, some say, that the debate is inaccurately cast as a struggle between two tribes – transit users versus motorists who supposedly won’t benefit from new rapid-transit lines but may end up footing a disproportionate share of the bill. “To me, it would be tragic if it’s a ‘No’ vote,” said Michael Goldberg, a conference presenter and dean emeritus at UBC’s Sauder School of Business. “I think it’s terribly unfortunate that we’re having a referendum.” Goldberg said opposition voices, amplified by the media, recite a simple but short-sighted no-new-taxes mantra and unfairly attack TransLink without acknowledging that transit is a public good. Bob Wilds, general manager of the Greater

DISNEY DRESSUP!

Vancouver Gateway Council, was one of the business leaders in the audience who is outspoken about the dangers of road congestion and a likely ally. “There would be a real problem if there isn’t a successful referendum,” said Wilds, whose group represents shippers, port terminals and goods movers. He declined to say if he opposes the premier’s decision to order the plebiscite. “We are where we’re at. It’s been announced. We just have to figure out a way to deal with it and be successful at it.” Blair Qualey, president and CEO of the New Car Dealers’ Association of B.C., was another attendee whose presence raised some eyebrows. “Public transit is an integral part of the overall transportation system,” he said in an interview later, adding it’s important for the whole province that solutions be found.

Former TransLink CEO Tom Prendergast says he’s not surprised TransLink is no closer to solving its financial challenges that it was when he left four years ago. Nor does he think the region is doomed to remain forever mired in political paralysis about how to pay for transit upgrades that most leaders consider essential. The former boss of Metro Vancouver’s transit system left in 2009 to take charge of New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority, but returned last week as a speaker at the Moving The Future transportation conference. Prendergast said it’s not unusual for it to take two or three tries to find the right path in such a challenging debate. He was cautious not to give an opinion on the merits of holding a referendum, but said he believes the region’s mayors can be influential champions of the ‘Yes’ side. “The 23 mayors got it – they understood the importance of the transportation network to the region,” he said. “If you had the majority of mayors saying that they’re for this, I think people get it. I think if you had unanimity it would be exceptionally strong.” Prendergast told the conference the biggest recent shift in thinking is understanding the changing demographics of transit and transportation. “We’ve got people who are millennials right now who don’t own a car and they don’t want to own a car,” he said. Younger people are using transit on a more daily basis, he said, not just for the commute. The takeaway, Prendergast said, is to plan not based on current patterns of transit, but what’s likely 10 or 15 years from now.

Ben Stewart gave up position for Christy Clark in July

Ex-MLA gets Asia trade post Tom Fletcher Black Press

Former MLA Ben Stewart is B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new investment and trade commissioner for Asia, Premier Christy Clark announced last week. Stewart will be based in Beijing, but will travel to Japan and Korea to meet regularly with officials working for B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s international-trade ministry. Stewart said his experience promoting the wine industry in Asia will help him with the job. Clark emphasized Stewartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experience as an MLA and cabinet minister, which she said gives him quick access to her and other cabinet ministers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need a representative in Asia who is known to have access to power and government here in British Columbia,â&#x20AC;? Clark said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is a critical part of doing successful business in Asia.â&#x20AC;? Stewart, owner of Quailâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gate winery, stepped down shortly after winning re-election in Westside-Kelowna in May so Clark could run in a by-election in July. He will be paid $150,000 to

The cabinet order appointing him allows the salary to increase to $170,000.

NDP international trade critic Bruce Ralston said B.C. has two dozen staffers in their Asiantrade offices, with senior people who speak the local languages and are more qualified than Stewart.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;There isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a provincial Senate, so I guess this is the next best thing,â&#x20AC;? Ralston said. Stewart said he worked on trade issues in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Japan, as well as Europe and Latin America, trying to open markets for the B.C. wine industry. That experience taught him â&#x20AC;&#x153;how difficult it is to establish relationships from afar,â&#x20AC;? he said. The announcement comes as Clark prepares for her own trade mission to Asia in late November, following similar tours by Forests Minister Steve Thomson and Natural Gas Development Minister Rich Coleman. After the May election, Clark established a new ministry of international trade, headed by Richmond Centre MLA Teresa Wat, who will accompany Clark on the trade mission Nov. 21 to Dec. 3.

Compass cards have union wary of conflict, assault risk

Jeff Nagel Black Press

Unionized bus drivers say they won’t be pressured into helping enforce fare payment by passengers when new Compass smart cards roll out. TransLink had asked drivers to “actively interact” with passengers to inform them about how to pay and that they could face fare-evasion fines if they refuse. Nathan Woods, president of the union representing drivers, says the proposed training program would have put drivers in the “precarious position” of being at greater risk of assault due to conflict with fare evaders. “We’re not going to stop them,” he said last week. “The passengers don’t want fights on their bus and neither do we.” File photo Woods said drivers will still Unionized bus drivers are worried that the new Compass cards will answer passengers’ questions cause conflict on their buses, so they won’t push for fare payment. about fare payment and “meet and greet” as usual, but they to record when someone boards drivers.

What Life Insurance Really Means… A

inslie Winter has been our life insurance advisor for the past 15 years. You always hope that you never have to actually use your life insurance. It is there ‘just in case’. My world fell apart when my husband suddenly passed away with cancer in 2007. He was too young and the cancer came on quickly. My husband left me and our 4 school aged children behind. Ainslie was there for me and my family. She helped me deal with the Insurance Company. Ainslie was kind, patient and caring. She brought me the insurance money and helped me deal with it. The insurance money helped by letting me stay home from work as long as I needed to be with my children. Without this life insurance money our lives would be very different. I thank Ainslie for taking the time over the years to help my husband and I understand the importance of life insurance. – D. McNaught, Cloverdale

Province to review idea of selling of booze in grocery stores

Alcohol sales may expand Tom Fletcher Black Press

The B.C. governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s liquor policy review has heard a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;loud and clearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; message that people want the convenience of buying alcoholic beverages in grocery stores, says the MLA in charge of the review. Just prior to the three-month consultation period ending Oct. 31, Richmond-Steveston MLA John Yap said about 80 per cent of respondents want the extra convenience that is routine in U.S. grocery stores.

Transportation Minister Todd Stone uses a dime to measure tread depth of a winter tire on his own vehicle during a news conference in Kamloops Tuesday.

Transportation Minister adds to highway-safety review

Winter tires important: Stone Tom Fletcher Black Press

Some “all season” tires are good enough for winter roads in B.C., but not all of them. That’s one reason why Transportation Minister Todd Stone has added the topic of tires to a provincial review of highway safety that includes speed limits. “It’s been almost 40 years since the current definition of a winter tire was actually changed, and tire technology has advanced dramatically, particularly over the last five to 10 years,” Stone said past week. With the popularity of all-season tires and allwheel-drive vehicles, Stone said there is some confusion about what is acceptable for requirements that took effect Oct. 1 on routes that have winter conditions. Those routes have signs advising drivers to use winter tires or carry chains, and police may turn drivers away if they are not properly equipped. True winter tires have a symbol of a mountain and snowflake on the sidewall. All-season tires with the “M+S” mark to indicate traction in mud and snow are also permissible, but all tires must have a minimum tread depth of 3.5 mm. A quick test can be done using a dime. Point Her Majesty’s head downward and insert the dime in the tire tread. If the top of the head remains visible, the tire is too worn to qualify for winter conditions. Drivers have a choice

of investing in new tires or buying a set of chains. The transportation ministry has a website at www.th.gov.bc.ca/ SeasonalDriving/

winter_chains.html that includes maps of routes affected by winter restrictions and tips on how to use tire chains. Stone said that with 60 per cent of B.C.

residents living in areas where winter conditions are not common, he is not considering making winter tires mandatory for all vehicles.

Premier Christy Clark announced $15 million for highwaysafety improvements in a speech to Vancouver Island business leaders last week, and dangled the prospect of liquefied-natural gas export jobs as well. In a speech to the Vancouver Island Economic Alliance Summit in Nanaimo, Clark said not everyone expected her to return for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event, before her upset win in the election in May. Vancouver Island was the only region where the B.C. Liberal government lost ground under Clarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadership, with the party shut out of the populous southern region around the capital Victoria. The highway commitment is for 2.3 km of centre barrier on Highway 1 from Shawnigan Lake to the Malahat summit, an extended passing lane and improvements to two intersections. Work is to begin next year. Clark said when it is completed, half of the Malahat corridor will be protected by dividers, including an area near Shawnigan Lake known locally as â&#x20AC;&#x153;NASCAR cornerâ&#x20AC;? where vehicles speed to pass before the road narrows. Transportation Minister Todd Stone said the Malahat safety improvements are an early step towards a larger Vancouver Island transportation strategy that has not yet been

revealed. As she prepares for an Asian trade mission focused on liquefiednatural gas exports, Clark said there is

Can you imagine ...

B.C. signs carbon-pricing deal with western States

Province keeps eye on greenhouse-gas goals Tom Fletcher Black Press

The B.C. government has reached out to U.S. states and the domestic clean-energy industry in an effort to keep its greenhouse-gas reduction goals in sight. Energy Minister Bill Bennett hopes to have details out by the end of the year for a “modest” clean-energy program he promised to privatepower developers at a conference in Vancouver this week. With BC Hydro projecting an electricity surplus in the near future, there won’t be another clean-power call any time soon for run-of-river, wind and other producers, Bennett said in an interview. A priority will be energy development for aboriginal communities, which have used small power production to get off diesel generators and to generate new income. The new commitment comes as BC Hydro continues weeding out proposals that haven’t delivered on powerpurchase contracts, in order to cut down on the utility’s growing debt. The government also signed an agreement this week with western U.S. states called the Pacific Coast Collaborative, to extend efforts to put a regional price on carbon. California has launched its own cap-and-trade system for carbon emissions, and B.C. continues to administer a carbon tax on fossil fuels imposed in 2006. B.C. Environment Minister Mary Polak signed the agreement in San Francisco with Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber and California Gov. Jerry Brown. Kitzhaber said more than 500,000 people on the North American West Coast now work in green-economy jobs, and the region will lead the way in the future. “We are here to reject the myth that jobs and the environment are in conflict,” he said. Meanwhile, B.C. continues its central effort, to develop liquefied-natural gas
