Murders match all-time high in Surrey Most homicides in a year was in 2005, when the total was also 21 by Kevin Diakiw SURREY HAS marked its 21st murder of the year, matching an all-time high for homicides in this city. On Saturday, at 11:15 p.m., ambulance crews were called to a home in the 2600-block of King George Boulevard for a man in medical distress. They found a man in his 40s, whose injuries were considered suspicious, so it was reported to police. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) took custody of the investigation. “Although we Sgt. Adam are in the initial MacIntosh stages of the investigation, we can state at this time, this was a targeted home invasion,” said IHIT Sgt. Adam MacIntosh. MacIntosh said no one has been charged, but that police are interviewing people “currently in custody.”

EVAN SEAL / THE LEADER

Raquel Padilla’s childhood home in Capiz, on the northern coast of Panay Island, Philippines, was ‘flattened’ by the giant typhoon that hit the area on Thursday. Her family survived the storm, but are now homeless.

‘I have such a heavy heart’ Surrey’s Filipino residents hit hard by news of Typhoon Haiyan’s devastation by Evan Seal SOUTH SURREY resident Raquel Padilla was only 45 days old when

she survived her first typhoon. Although she was very young, she can remember her parents telling her how they had to jump out a window in the family home as the building collapsed around them. That was nearly 30 years ago. For the last few days, Padilla has been trying to find out as much information as possible following the onslaught of Typhoon Haiyan – packing winds of more than 300 kilometres per hours at its peak –

which destroyed much of the Philippines on Nov. 7. Padilla’s family lives in the province of Capiz on the northern coast of Panay Island, an area known for its beautiful coastlines and abundant seafood. Once the storm had subsided, the vibrant farming and fishing community had been reduced to a wasteland of splintered wood debris and twisted metal roofing. “Everyone is there, my parents, my cousins, my aunts,” said Padilla, her voice filled with emotion. “Everything is flattened.” See DONATIONS / Page 4

Foreign leaders coming to economic summit

Tina Turner tribute artist Luisa Marshall – who is originally from Manilla – is among the performers appearing at a Surrey fundraiser on Nov. 14 at the Grand Taj Banquet Hall. The event will raise money for the Canadian Red Cross’s relief efforts in the Philippines in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan.

Former prime ministers of Israel, Australia and Greece to speak at Surrey’s annual economic event by Kevin Diakiw THREE FOREIGN former prime ministers will be coming to the annual Surrey Regional Economic Summit, The Leader has learned. Originally planned for this fall, the summit was delayed for a few months after attempts to woo former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton failed. The event was pushed forward to February. Keynote speakers will include former prime minister of Australia Julia Gillard, former Greek prime minister George Papandreou, and former Isreal prime minister Ehud Barak. Barak is known for ending Isreal’s 22-year occupation of Lebanon in 2000. Papandreaou was Linda Hepner shortlisted for “Diplomat of the Year” in 2003 and was cited in Le Monde as the “architect of Greek-Turkish rapprochement.” Gillard was prime minister of Australia from 2010 to 2013, becoming the first woman to hold the position in that country. Contacted for comment, Coun. Linda Hepner said she was excited about the guests coming to the summit, but she could not confirm the specifics on who was speaking. However, The Leader has learned the former prime ministers have agreed to be a part of the summit. An announcement could come as early as next week.

Anti-tethering law approved Surrey: Dogs cannot be tied up for more than four hours by Kevin Diakiw SURREY HAS passed a bylaw

Coun. Barinder Rasode

outlawing the tethering of dogs for long periods of time. On Monday, Surrey council gave early approval to the bylaw, which prohibits the tying of dogs for more than four hours in total on any given day. While it’s unclear how city bylaw officers are going to clock how long a dog has been tethered, Coun. Barinder Rasode

said the important part of the bylaw is the message it will send to people who might mistreat their animals. “What I think is really important here, is us moving forward with this bylaw is a real indication that treating dogs humanely is a priority for the City of Surrey,” Rasode said. “Enforcement will be a bit of a challenge… the challenge will be how do you determine whether that was four hours.”

South Surrey animal rights activist Janet Olson said the city’s coming up short on the legislation. “This unenforceable legislation seems perfectly designed to try to appease frustrated animal lovers while at the same time doing nothing to alienate chained dog owners. It is all appearance without any substance.” Olson said. kdiakiw@surreyleader.com

Donations: Canada to match From page 1

Padilla moved to Canada in 2010 and is currently working as a nanny. Her family in the Philippines is now trying to survive the aftermath of the worst typhoon to hit landfall in recorded history. Her parents have been able to get to Manila, and the rest of her family survived the storm, but like many others, are in desperate need of help. Their homes no longer exist, and the area of Capiz where they live is under water.

“People don’t own cars,” said Padilla. “They rely so heavily on public transportation, but all of the transit system is destroyed. There are no roads left.” She is concerned that much of the media attention is focused on the country’s larger cities, however all of the Philippines is in serious need. The return of any electricity alone could take up to six months. “I can’t stop crying,” Padilla said, “hearing stories of parents holding on to their children and suddenly they’re gone only to find them later, dead.

Tips for donating to typhoon relief Better Business Bureau warns of questionable solicitors Black Press

AS THE public’s attention and hearts are focused on the devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan, the Better Business Bureau serving Mainland British Columbia advises donors to take steps to avoid being duped by questionable solicitors or wasting their money on poorly managed relief efforts. “Often our first instinct is to donate money to help victims in these tragedies, but Canadians really need to take a step back and really know where and how their money and donations will be used,” said Danielle Primrose, president and CEO of the Better Business Bureau serving Mainland B.C. The Better Business Bureau noted the following mistakes Canadians often make when deciding where to direct donations: • Mistake #1: Making a donation decision based solely on the charity’s name. Charities ranging from well-known emergency relief organizations to organizations experi-

Typhoon Haiyan approaches the Philippines from the east. This image was taken by the Japan Meteorological Agency on Nov. 7 enced in reconstruction will likely be soliciting for various relief assistance efforts. Make sure the appeal specifies how the charity will help. If it does not, visit the charity’s website. Also, watch out for charity names that include the name of the disaster – it could be a start-up group with little experience. • Mistake #2: Collecting clothing and goods without verifying that the items can be used. Unless you have verified that a charity is in need of specific items and has a distribution plan in place, collecting

clothing, food and other goods may end up being a wasted effort. Relief organizations often prefer to purchase goods near the location of the disaster to help speed delivery and avoid expensive long distance freight costs. Also, sending non-essential items may actually slow down the charity’s ability to address urgent needs. • Mistake #3: Sending donations to inexperienced relief efforts. Good intentions alone are not enough to carry out relief activities effectively. If the charity has not previously been

involved in disaster relief, or does not have experience in assisting the overseas nation(s) that have been impacted, this likely will hamper their ability to work well in the affected areas. • Mistake #4: Responding to online and social media appeals without checking. Don’t let your guard down just because the appeal is online. Don’t assume that since a third-party blog, website or friend recommended a relief charity that it has been thoroughly vetted. Check out the charity’s website on your own. • Mistake #5: Donating without doing your homework. Find out if a charity meets recognized accountability standards. If you want assurance that the charity is transparent, accountable, and well managed, see if it meets

Tethering Cable service bad all around bylaw keeps bad owners on the loose IN REGARD TO Jane Stevens’ let-

IT HAS BEEN A LONG year-and-a-

half wait for anti-tethering legislation in Surrey. And the wait has not be worth it. It is apparent that the City of Surrey is determined, once again, to only appear to want to end the suffering of chained dogs in their community. Their proposed legislation to limit the chaining of dogs to four hours in a 24-hour period sounds great in theory. But how, in practice, is this time limit going to be enforced? Will animal control officers wait outside a chained dog’s home to time how long the dog is chained? When the owners of chained dogs see the city watching them, it is reasonable to assume that they will bring the dog inside until the officers leave, then return the dog back onto the chain? Will officers stay outside a chained dogs home for 24 hours to ensure the maximum time is not exceeded? Will reports of permanently chained dogs by neighbours be taken at their word? Or will neighbors be expected to videotape the dog’s time on a chain over a 24-hour period?   The drafting of effective legislation must, one would assume, go hand in hand with ensuring its enforceability. If a council is only interested in appearing to be taking action, then this legislation is perfect. During a presentation by the Campaign for Animal Rights Legislation, Surrey council was provided with feedback from communities that had initially enacted a time limit to tethering. These communities had found the law too difficult and costly to enforce and ultimately enacted a tethering ban. We also provided them with evidence that the incidence of attacks by chained dogs was only reduced by a tethering ban. A time limit to tethering did nothing to reduce chained dog attacks, largely because time limits to tethering are practically unenforceable. Surrey has one of the highest number of dog owners (read “voters”) who chain their dogs in the Lower Mainland. This unenforceable legislation seems perfectly designed to try to appease frustrated animal lovers while at the same time doing nothing to alienate chained dog owners. It is all appearance without any substance. Janet Olson Campaign for Animal Rights Legislation

ter on wait times from Shaw et al (“Held hostage on the phone,” Nov. 5), I note that she has written to Shaw complaining and expects about a week’s wait. To save her the time, I can essentially tell her the gist of the answer she will receive. It will be a standard letter with all the “blah blah” about how concerned they are and how much they are striving to reduce wait times by hiring more staff, etc. How do I know this?

Simply put, I have received the same response three times over the last four years and as a consequence of their “earnest strivings to reduce wait times,” the wait times have increased to about double what they were four years ago. The whole thing is absurd as there is virtually always a recorded message saying, “We are experiencing longer than normal wait times.” How can they constantly be longer than normal? This is simply idiotic. The bad news though is that

Telus is even worse. The only caveat to my frustration at Shaw is that their support chatline works reasonably well, but their telephone support service is beyond awful. The solution is simple. We have to all migrate whenever it is possible to some service provider that really cares. This will probably happen with smart TVs and competition in cable/satellite service.   Geoff Moxon

Gary Robinson will be missed YOUR NOV. 7 ARTICLE on my former regional colleague Gary Robinson’s

death caught me as a sad surprise and prompted a moment of reflection. Gary and I were both elected in 1987, we were both the youngest on our perspective councils (myself in Langley and Gary in Surrey), and we often shared stories about our more senior mayors and councillors. We were the young Turks and we often rustled feathers and caused the odd flare-up in our councils. I remember Gary and myself having an interesting conversation with a young mayor from Vancouver, one Gordon Campbell. These were interesting times and people like Gary stood firm and loyal to put Surrey on the map and build credibility for Surrey at the regional district table. What came next was rapid transit (SkyTrain) and a booming metropolis population. Although Gary wasn’t responsible for all these things, he helped pave the way. I had a chance to meet with Gary a few months back and he explained to me and my wife Denise of his involvement with helping individuals get off drugs. As a former alternate school teacher who has seen firsthand the challenges of alcohol and drug abuse within youth and their families, I applauded Gary’s commitment (especially his personal drug challenges and ability to beat his own addictions). It is now sad and unfortunate that his life has been taken so soon, but I am sure he has left behind a trail of changed people and dedicated followers who won’t hesitate to continue the cause. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Gary’s wife and his two sons. He will be missed. FILE PHOTO / THE LEADER

The late Gary Robinson stood up for Surrey and was committed to helping people with addictions, says a former colleague.

Coal fiction Lot access indeed restricted

RE: “BE MINDFUL of the facts about coal,” Letters,

The Leader, Oct. 31. In her letter, Anita Huberman asks readers to “be mindful of the facts about this project,” yet never mentions any of the real facts about coal, merely treating it as another “resource.” I expect those who are community leaders to become aware of the real issues rather then just repeat the propaganda from Big Business. If you study the history of Earth, it becomes clear that this planet has undergone extensive contortions to take excess carbon out of the picture in order for life and water to continue to exist here. It is so easy for an excess of carbon to build up in the life cycles, and extremely difficult to get that carbon condensed into coal and oil and tucked safely away deep underground. Safely, that is, until humans came along, and in less than 200 years, sent a major part of that carbon into the atmosphere. When you fully realize how difficult it is to get that carbon back out of the cycle, then you see that those who pull carbon out of the ground and trade in carbon are the worst possible environmental criminals and an excellent example of the collective insanity of humans. Robert McCroskey, Surrey

REGARDING RUTH REITER’S letter stating I

was wrong regarding getting into the Safeway parking lot, I am sorry to say I must burst her bubble. My letter clearly states that one cannot access the Safeway lot travelling west on 104 Avenue. I am correct. There is no turning left from 104 Avenue onto the lot. Certainly, if you are going east on 104 Avenue, you can turn into the lot. Also, travelling north on King George Bou-

levard, the only access to Safeway, is to turn into a narrow lane behind Safeway, and access the lot from City Parkway. I really wonder why Ruth thinks the city did something right by severely restricting access to the Safeway lot. The traffic light on 104 Avenue and City Parkway is fine, but my complaint regarding the light at 104 Avenue and 142 Street still stands.   Derek Coughtrey, Surrey

New memories of Nov. 11 AS A CANADIAN VETERAN of the Second World War and being a proud participant in the

Royal Canadian Legion Branch #6 parade and ceremony in Cloverdale, I wish to thank, not only the legion and the RCMP for putting on a first-class performance, but others who came to my aid as I staggered off the parade square feeling ill. Against my protestations, the ambulance service drove my to the emergency ward of Surrey Memorial Hospital. The treatment I received from the knowledgeable and kindly teams was overwhelming and I am most grateful. Three hours later with a complete diagnosis of my condition being forwarded to my doctor, I was able to return to the legion festivities and appreciate the wonderful performance by the Versatiles. Thanks to all you wonderful people for your knowledge, kindness and dedication.   Mike Harvey, Langley

Watts: More police officers From page 1

MacIntosh said the victim is known to them, and that drugs are being looked at as possible motive. It brings to 21 the number of killings in Surrey this year, a match for the all-time record, police confirm (see timeline page 8). Mayor Dianne Watts said it seems there’s a pattern every four years of a high homicide rate in this city. “It’s certainly concerning to me,” Watts said, noting that the majority of the murders involved people involved in drugs and/or gangs. She said more police officers would be welcome. “I think we could always use more police,” she said, adding that will be a conversation that will be had with her colleagues. Coun. Barinder Rasode agrees that more has to be done to stop the bloodshed.

She also thinks this city needs more police officers. She also recommends getting tougher on sentencing for people involved in a serious violent crime. The latest homicide was the same address as a front-yard brawl earlier this year. “This was not something random,” MacIntosh said. “Surrey RCMP have been here before and are familiar with our deceased male. “There are some people that are currently in custody that we are speaking with.” Police are seeking to notify the victim’s next of kin before naming him. On Sept. 1, a man and a woman were taken to hospital after a fight broke out outside the home. RCMP said the earlier incident was not a drug case “but more of potentially an assault or weapons-related investigation.” The situation closed King George Boulevard for several hours, and several people were

taken into custody. Emergency crews returned Sept. 20, when a number of RCMP vehicles and an ambulance were parked in front of the house. A passerby – who said she lived nearby – said one

man was escorted from the house and was placed on stretcher and loaded into the ambulance. Investigators are asking anyone with information to contact the IHIT tip line at 1-877-551IHIT (4448).

Police now say they have located the car that took off and are speaking with the 32-year-old man they say was driving at the time of the collision. The discovery of the vehicle came after a member of the public tipped police to the whereabouts of a 2000 purple Honda Civic. “Our request for assistance resulted in exactly the kind of outcome we hoped to receive from our community to assist our efforts,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet. Police say the car was not stolen, and that they have spoken with the registered owner.

Four more years: Crown Prosecutors want more jail time for Surrey man who drugged, raped and robbed victims by Sheila Reynolds A SURREY MAN who drugged his

victims before sexually assaulting and/or robbing them, should spend another four years in prison, say Crown prosecutors. Steven Beszedes initially faced 24 criminal charges, but in March, pleaded guilty to 15 of them, including one count of sexual assault, as well as multiple counts of criminal negligence, robbery and administering drugs to commit an indictable offence. The court heard that Beszedes drugged vulnerable people, mostly sex trade workers and drug addicts, for his own benefit. During a sentencing hearing in New Westminster Supreme Court on Thursday (Nov. 7), it was revealed that Beszedes, 48, had bought a white powdered drug online. He used it himself and then offered it to others free in the hopes of selling it to them in the future. His victims, some of whom he knew while others he did not, would smoke, inject or snort the substance and almost instantly fall unconscious. It was then that Beszedes would sexually assault and/or rob them. Many of the women woke up alone, naked or missing clothing, sometimes

a day or two later. One awoke behind a dumpster, another was lying between cars in a parking lot, two were in bushes and one in a wooded ravine. Some had money, purses and jewelry taken. Beszedes’ sole male victim was a 69-year-old man who had used Craigslist to find a casual sexual encounter. Beszedes and a woman showed up to his Langley motor home. The man was offered drugs, which he took, and immediately passed out. Beszedes and the woman left with a laundry basket full of the man’s belongings, including two laptops, cameras, jewelry, a debit card and credit card. The man’s landlord found him unconscious and he was taken to hospital, where tests confirmed his urine contained the sedative benzodiazepine – a drug the Crown believes had been administered to Beszedes’ previous victims. A victim impact statement from the 69-year-old read in court said he can’t put the incident – and the fact that he almost died – out of his mind. “I no longer trust anyone, especially strangers. No one,” wrote the man. He said the attack changed his

life forever and he isn’t sure he’ll ever recover. Crown prosecutor Beverley Lane said the incidents took place over at least a two-year period. She said Beszedes crimes were predatory and reckless and noted he left his victims unconscious, often outside where they were unable to protect themselves from the elements or other people. Lane said Beszedes, who has been in jail for three years, should serve an additional four years. He would receive double credit for time already served. Defence lawyer Jason Gratl said an additional two years in prison would be better for Beszedes, arguing probation would not be available for anything longer and would be beneficial for his rehabilitation. A psychiatric report said Beszedes tends to act impulsively, lacks self-discipline and is at a moderate risk to reoffend. The report said he justified his actions and lacks insight into his offences, although he seemed “distressed” about the sexual assaults, as opposed to the robberies, which he minimized as routine among drug addicts. Beszedes is due back in court Dec. 6.

REGIONAL BRIEFS

Real estate remains flat by Jeff Nagel

LOWER MAINLAND real estate markets so far aren’t keeping pace with this year’s gains in the stock markets. The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver said its composite benchmark price for all residential properties was $600,700 in October – a 0.5-percent drop from a year ago. Attached duplexes and townhomes were virtually unchanged, while detached houses were down 0.5 per cent year-over-year and apartments were down 0.9 per cent. The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board (FVREB), which includes Surrey, White Rock and North Delta, said its benchmark detached house price was up 0.8 per cent to $546,900 from a year ago, while townhouses were down 0.5 per cent and apartments are down 2.2 per cent. “What we’re witnessing is a return to a balanced residential market indicated by prices remaining unchanged or down slightly compared to a year ago,” said FVREB president Ron Todson. The broad Canadian stock market index is up 10 per cent from one year ago, while the U.S. S&P 500 is closing in on a 30 per cent year-overyear gain.

cities, first nations and other private property owners. A new incinerator within the Lower Mainland is strongly opposed by Fraser Valley politicians.

Site answers Compass questions TRANSLINK HAS

launched a website for transit users to ask questions about its new Compass card payment system. The questionand-answer site at askcompass.ca has more than 100 questions and responses so far. According to the site, passengers with unused FareSaver tickets will be able to exchange them in the new year for Compass card credit. The new cards will be rolled out gradually this winter to various groups of users. TransLink says it will ensure the new system is working well before activating the newly installed fare gates at

SkyTrain stations sometime next year.

SkyTrain tunnel driller coming A MASSIVE tunnel

boring machine is on its way to Metro Vancouver from Ontario to begin drilling a tunneled section of the future Evergreen Line. The machine will begin boring a twokilometre section of tunnel in Port Moody and Coquitlam in February. It’s being shipped in pieces by rail and truck and will be assembled at a launch site on the west side of Barnet Highway in Port Moody. The $1.43-billion SkyTrain extension from Burnaby’s Lougheed Station to Port Moody and Coquitlam is to open in the summer of 2016.

B.C. drivers confident of snow skills A POLL has found only

plan to use winter tires even though two-thirds agree that everyone should have them. The survey by Insights West for the B.C. Automobile Association (BCAA) found 87 per cent rated themselves as a good winter driver, saying they worry about others on the road. Just 32 per cent of those reached admitted to “freaking out a bit” when they realize they’ll have to drive in the snow, Of those who don’t plan to use winter tires, 54 per cent said it doesn’t snow enough near them while 51 per cent believe allseason tires are safe enough to get them through winter. BCAA spokesman Ken Cousin said that underscores a perception that winter tires are only for driving in snow. “In fact, winter tires are the safest option for all winter conditions.”

The Duke Point site is being advanced by proponent Wheelabrator Technologies in partnership with Urbaser and Seaspan.

Johnson of New Westminster were arrested in March 2012 at the Super 8 Motel on Glover Road in Langley, after police received a report about a suspicious man who had checked in to a room.  When police arrived, they found a Chevy Blazer in the parking lot that matched the description of a vehicle used in a Chilliwack robbery. Yaroslawsky and Johnson then became involved in a two-hour standoff with police before surrendering. Searches of the Chevy and the hotel room turned up numerous items that were found to be connected to several home break-ins. Police also searched a storage locker in Aldergrove for which they had found a rental agreement in the Chevy. Among the items seized by police were televisions, cameras, computers, iPods and other electronics; car and house keys; three guns; jewelry; cash; prescription drugs; and various forms of ID, including passports, Card Cards, social insurance cards, and credit cards. Yaroslawsky was also caught on video surveillance at a gas station using a bank card just hours after it had been stolen and on which he had purchased more than $1,200 in goods. At Yaroslawky’s sentencing hearing in August, the court heard that he has a criminal history dating back to 1995 – when he was 13 – and has 46 prior convictions for crimes such as assault, break and enter, drug possession and trafficking.  Johnson, 34, of New Westminster was sentenced in September to two years in prison after pleading guilty to several stolen-property offences.

Officers got out of their car and drew their weapons, pointing them in the direction of a restaurant in the area. The victim, a 28-year-old man named Michael, told CTV News he had left a donair restaurant where was having dinner with friends, when the police vehicle came roaring up. He said he was in the car and heard police yell “freeze.” Sitting in the back seat, he heard the glass shatter, and felt a burning in his chest. He was pulled out of the window by police, when he discovered he’d been shot. Fix said he heard the “pop” of a gun going off, then heard the screaming of a man saying “No more shooting.” It’s believed there were three men in the car, and that it was a

man in the back seat that was hit by the police bullet. The other two have been taken into custody. Don Brookes was also nearby and heard the bang of a gunshot. He heard what he assumed was a the gunshot victim yelling “it hurts.” Then after the shot he heard an officer yell “freeze,” he said He said he didn’t hear any yelling before the shot. Brookes said he knows there’s a fair amount of drug activity in the neighbourhood, but says it’s usually pretty quiet. Fix said a lot goes through the mind in the presence of gunplay, but he felt grateful the police were there. The Independent Investigations Office (IIO) has been called in to investigate the shooting. Michael told CTV there were no firearms or drugs in the car, only a couple of coolers he was carrying.

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

Three ďŹ nalists chosen for RenoMe! With FortisBC contest By Kerry Vital

Three British Columbia residents are getting the chance to win $10,000 towards a room makeover with natural gas after being chosen as a finalist in the RenoMe! with FortisBC contest. Over 150 entries were received from all over the province, but the final three were narrowed down to Gayle Curtis of Maple Ridge for her kitchen, Melissa Tolsma of Nanaimo for her outdoor space and Wendy Frose of Chilliwack for her great room. Designer Sarah Gallop of Sarah Gallop Design Inc. (SGDI) has taken on the outdoor space project, while SGDIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Stephanie Malhas will design the great room, and Susanne Doise of Sensitive Design will handle the kitchen. In the next phase of the contest, the three finalists will receive renderings of their space from their designer, and then readers will vote on which one deserves the makeover the most. The room with the most votes will win $10,000 towards their renovation, while the second and third-place finalists will receive $2,000 each. Doise has consulted with Curtis, and has provided a rendering of how she thinks the kitchen could look once itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s renovated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kitchen is in bad shape,â&#x20AC;? says Doise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to give her a better flow between the work spaces and the rest of the room.â&#x20AC;? Curtis calls her kitchen disgusting, gross and old, and says sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tired of burning everything she cooks due to a bad stove, so Doise will be incorporating natural gas in the kitchen with a Viking dual-fuel gas range. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very simple way to use natural gas,â&#x20AC;? she says. Gas cooktops have long been popular with professional

chefs for their even cooking, precise temperature control and instant heat. Homeowners have increasingly been choosing them for their new and renovated kitchens alike. One of the concerns with the room is the lack of space. In order to combat this, Doise has suggested a movable butcher block island that can be pushed into the pantry wall to open up the space. She notes that currently, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even open the refrigerator without bumping into the existing counter, and opening the dishwasher blocks you from doing anything else in the kitchen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to bring in more light as well,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will look more friendly and inviting.â&#x20AC;? She also plans to incorporate an area for the homeowners to work and study. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to make it multifunctional,â&#x20AC;? she says. Doise has considered the ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tastes as well, and would incorporate her likes and dislikes into the final design. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to make her happy,â&#x20AC;? she says. Malhas is similarly excited about her great room project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People live in their space for so long that they get used to it and have trouble visualizing changing it,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have that emotional connection to it so I can see the potential in the room and suggest ways to fix it.â&#x20AC;? The current room is the main living area for Froseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in dire need of an update. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any time I can get into wood panelling is good,â&#x20AC;? laughs Malhas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will definitely be gone.â&#x20AC;? One of the biggest issues with the room is the current wood-burning fireplace, which isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t centred in the room and makes for awkward

Winner will receive $10,000 towards a natural gas room makeover from FortisBC homeowners more storage space via built-in shelving, as well as a music area. “She’s embarrassed by the room,” Malhas says. “It’s very dark, but it’s quite a big space so I want to make it more contemporary with a retro style.” A natural gas fireplace is both

more energy-efficient and more convenient for homeowners. You no longer have to worry about power outages, since the fireplace doesn’t run on electricity, and there is no more waiting for your fireplace to heat up, since natural gas is available at the push of a button. There

are even some models that can be pre-programmed to turn on seating around it. Malhas plans to at a specific time.

She also plans to give the The space is currently only usable in the warmer months, so she’s hoping to be able to use it yearround if she wins the contest. Among the ideas Gallop has for the yard is a hot tub with an arbor above it. “That will give them a little bit of coverage and privacy,” she says, adding that the hot tub will be heated by natural gas. Gallop also plans to include an outdoor kitchen with natural gas barbecue and a natural gas firepit. A natural gas hot tub is a great idea for homeowners, with its consistent, fast heat and automatic safety shut-off controls for added peace of mind. Swimming pools can also be heated by natural gas. FortisBC notes that a natural gas barbecue can be extremely convenient for homeowners looking for fuel on demand, Sarah Gallop rendering as you’ll never have to deal Sarah Gallop of Sarah Gallop Design Inc. has envisioned an outdoor space with a natural gas hot tub, natural gas barbecue and with running out of propane natural gas firepit for Melissa Tolsma of Nanaimo. or charcoal. It also allows you to cook with different temperatures at the same time and control the heat more easily. It also burns cleaner than other fuel sources, making it good for the environment as well. FortisBC offers a energy calculator that will help you compare the cost of fuel sources and their energy efficiency, demonstrating that natural gas is the most affordable choice for homeowners. Find it at www. fortisbc.com/energycalculator. FortisBC natural gas customers are also continuing to benefit from some of the lowest prices in a decade, at under $4 per gigajoule. Firepits are becoming increasingly popular in outdoor spaces, especially for those who want to use their outdoor space Susanne Doise rendering for more than just the summer Susanne Doise of Sensitive Design is aiming to give Gayle Curtis more work space in her cramped kitchen, as well as including a months. They also make for great entertaining areas natural gas range and a movable kitchen island. that Gallop describes as like camping in your own backyard. Gallop’s design features several levels to define the different spaces in the yard. “The space looked disconnected before,” she says. “This gives (Tolsma) different zones in the yard while still being connected.” It also makes the space transition a bit better between the casual entertaining area, the hot tub and the rest of the yard. “It’s a pretty straightforward renovation,” Gallop says. “The homeowner will be very happy with it.” To vote, visit your local Black Press paper’s website and click on the Contests link.

Question

Cadillac in the rear-view mirror of the European premium brands 2014 Cadillac CTS One auto trend that shows little sign of waning is the move towards more luxury or premium cars by manufacturers and consumers alike. As baby boomers age, they have earned the nicer things in life, and the offspring of baby boomers are getting used to the finer things in life, so more automakers are moving upscale. The Europeans do luxury and performance better than most and the Japanese luxury brands have been putting in their time to becoming a real force. But long before the Japanese, there have always been the American luxury brands, with many firsts in features and technology. Established in 1902, Cadillac is one of the oldest, along with Mercedes-Benz, and continues to be General Motors’ flagship in terms of refinement and technology. Looks The smaller Cadillac ATS was released a year ago and went on to win the North American Car of the Year award. General Motors has taken that platform and elongated it to produce the lightest mid-sized car in its class. It’s a full 173kg lighter than the benchmark BMW 5-Series it competes against, and 34kg lighter than the outgoing car. A lighter car, made of

Verdict The price of the CTS ranges from about $51,000 for the base model to $66,000 for the top premium trim level. The Vsport, high performance model is priced at almost $75,000. The Cadillac CTS is not an inexpensive car, but it offers many features like standard heated and vented leather seats, Bose stereo and push button start even on the base model. Compared to some of the other mid-sized luxury sedans it is less expensive, plus it is a worthy car for any driving enthusiast.

MY NISSAN

Every time you get behind the wheel of a vehicle, there’s a possibility you can change your life or the lives of others.

‘‘

Alexandra Straub

B.C. racecar driver Cherie Storms told me she was taking an advanced driver training course to appease her father’s wishes. She’d been putting it off since teenagedom. That said, her father is an accomplished racecar driver and a proficient motorist, so you could argue it was an inevitability. But she had to find the desire in herself first. What followed, even she didn’t think would happen. She recently took home the championship title for the B Spec series in her Mazda2 for the 2013 race season. She grew up in a motorsports household but it wasn’t until she actually got behind the wheel at the driving course that her mindset changed. “I was just overwhelmed with all of the technical aspects that it takes to be a good driver,” she stated. It’s like what my grade 12 math teacher always said, “Math is not a spectator sport.” There was even a poster on the cubicle wall to remind us. The same thing goes for driving. Except there’s no poster in the cubicle for that! We need to be an active participant, not a wallflower. Anyone who has taken advanced driving courses will know exactly what Cherie is talking about. It’s not just about knowing how to shift gears on a manual transmission without jerking the car, or parallel parking your sedan without curbing the rims. Driving is so much more. I understand that this mode of transportation is a necessity for many. And it’s something done out of convenience rather than love. Kind of like laundry

grouting the bathroom floor tiles. Then again, for others, it’s a passion. Myself included. Taking a specialized course, whether it’s a track day or a race school isn’t just for wannabe racers. It’s for everyone. And we can all learn if we have an open mind. We read to keep our mind sharp. We walk/run/work out to keep our bodies active. We sleep to keep our bodies functioning. Why should driving be any different? Why shouldn’t we actively engage in making ourselves better drivers? Every time you get behind the wheel of a vehicle, there’s a possibility you can change your life or the lives of others. We might not think too much about it, but operating a vehicle is a huge responsibility. Poor driving habits, not shoulder checking, not using your signals, driving in the left lane when you’re not passing are minor details in the grand scheme of things, but have a large impact. It’s never too late to refresh the basics and then pick up a few new good habits. For example, if you look at any of the top athletes in their sport, they’re training most of the time. They’re trying to perfect their craft, even when they’re at the top of it. I doubt Sebastian Vettel slums around in his down

time, even after winning his fourth consecutive Formula1 world championship. Sure, he gets a break, but he’s constantly training to be faster and stronger. In another interview, I chatted with Izod Indy racecar driver Simona de Silvestro. She tells me that there’s really no such thing as an “off-season.” She says she trains all year long. In fact, she trains harder when she’s not always behind the wheel of a car to prepare for the upcoming races. If the pros do it, we should to. Some of the most fun I’ve had behind the wheel of a car has been at a driving school. Whether it was the three-day racing school at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca with the Skip Barber program, or a track day at the Mission Raceway with Morrisport Advanced Driving, or even a track program close to you, it’s a win-win. If we’re all safer drivers then the chances of accidents are minimized and we can keep our vehicles dent-free longer. And avoid going through insurance claims. The few hundred dollars it takes to enrol is of infinite worth in the long run. Alexandra.straub@ drivewaybc.ca Twitter.com/cargirlsgarage

Mercedes-Benz E-Class 2010 to 2012 An all-new 2010-model year E-Class Coupe beat its sedan counterpart into Canadian Mercedes-Benz dealerships, in mid-2009. Style, safety and comfort are fundamental characteristics of an E-Class, which is considered to be one of the safest cars in the world. This generation E-Class came with ten air bags and a new Pre-Safe system that readies all on-board safety systems, when it detects that a collision may be about to happen. A car to savour on a long road trip, this E-Class came with a new “Intelligent” body structure that’s 30 per cent more rigid than its predecessor, incredibly comfortable seating and a newly developed suspension with shock absorbers that automatically adjust to a driving situation. An optional air suspension was also available with an electronic damping system. The E350 (coupe or sedan) is powered by a 3.5 litre V6 with 268 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The E550 (coupe or sedan) has a 5.5 litre V8 that can generate 382 hp and 391 lb-ft of torque. The sedan also comes in a high-performance AMG 63 edition with a 6.2-litre V8 that makes 518 horsepower

and 465 lb.-ft. of torque. All three engines are mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission and drive goes to the rear wheels of the Coupe and to all four wheels of the Sedan. The rear-drive 3.5L V6 gets best fuel economy at 11.9 L/100/km in the city and 7.6 L/100/km on the highway. The 6.2L V8 is the gas guzzler, with a city/highway rating of 16.5/10.2 L/100/ km. All three engines also prefer premium fuel. A standard Dynamic Handling package also allows the driver choose a sporty-set-up at the touch of a button. This changes the continuously variable damping, the speed-sensitive power steering (with variable centering), ESP/ASR (traction control), accelerator response, and speed of automatic gear changes. New active safety innovations included Attention Assist, which is a driver drowsiness monitor, PreSafe, which is preventative occupant protection system, Adaptive High Beam Assist, which automatically dims headlight high beams, and an automatic emergency braking system called Distronic Plus. Attention Assist is a warning system that can sense a drop in driver attention level. It continuously monitors more than 70 different driver performance parameters, such as erratic steering behaviour, and will signal when it’s time for the driver to take a break. Four new E-Class models were added for the 2011 model year: an E350 4MATIC station wagon, E350 BlueTEC diesel sedan, and two convertibles, the E350 cabriolet and E550 cabriolet. At highway cruising speeds you can barely hear the E350 BlueTEC diesel engine, throttle response is fast (for a diesel) and pulling power (398 lb ft of torque from 1600 to 2400 rpm) is phenomenal. Engine upgrades followed in 2012. The E350 4MATIC got a direct-injection 3.5-litre V6. The E550 4MATIC got a 4.6-litre bi-turbo V8 and the E63 AMG got a 5.5-litre bi-turbo V8. All models also receive a re-

vised transmission, electric power steering and LED license plates. Even though owner costs tend to be higher than average, the E-Class made Consumer Reports’ ‘Recommended list of cars to buy and the E350 BlueTEC was singled out for special praise. If style, comfort and safety top your auto “wish list”, and you’ve got the money, consider the remarkable Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Price Check - 2010 - 2012 Mercedes-Benz E-Class (October 2013) Year Edition Expect to Pay Today 2010 E350 Coupe/Sedan $32,000 to $38,000 2011 E350 Coupe/Sedan $39,000 to $46,000 2012 E350 Coupe/Sedan $49,000 to $57,000 Prices vary depending on a used vehicle’s condition, mileage, usage and history.

Solid line lunacy It seems to me that few people know when it is permissible to turn left across a solid centre line. If you can make the turn without hindering people behind you that is fine but if you can’t – drive drive on because it’s the law. I live near a hospital and see people break this rule daily, allowing cars to stack up behind while they wait for a clearance in traffic to complete their turn. kmorgan@blackpress.ca

Are your tires ready for winter? Province evaluating what the tread descriptions really mean by Tom Fletcher

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 Tuesday. With the popularity

of all-season tires and all-wheel-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. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Surrey Eagles lose two of three games

One win in a ‘sloppy’ weekend by Nick Greenizan LAST WEEK was not exactly one to remember

for the Surrey Eagles, after the junior hockey team won just once in four games, sinking further down the BC Hockey League standings as a result.  Last Wednesday, the Eagles dropped a 4-3 decision on the road to the Coquitlam Express, before bouncing back Friday night at South Surrey Arena to beat the Chilliwack Chiefs in a high-scoring 7-6 affair. In the rematch, Saturday, however, it was the Chiefs who prevailed, winning 6-4. Then, rounding out the busy week, Surrey dropped a 2-1 decision to the Langley Rivermen in a Remembrance Day matinee. “It would’ve been nice to win two out of three (on the weekend),” said Eagles coach/GM Peter Schaefer.  “The two games against the Chiefs were just sloppy all around. Just so many sloppy turnBut we were Peter Schaefer overs. better Monday against Langley, I thought. That game was more of a playoff style, with tight defence.” In the 7-6 win, Surrey  – which peppered Chilliwack goaltender Josh Halpenny with 55 shots – was lead by captain Brett Mulcahy and the Renouf brothers, Jonah and Nathan, all of whom had four-point nights. Mulcahy and Nathan Renouf each had two goals and two assists, while Jonah Renouf had a goal and three helpers.  Surrey also got goals from Nic Pierog and Colton Mackie, while the Chiefs were led by Austin Plevy, who had two goals, and Carter Cochrance, who had three assists.  In the rematch Saturday at Chilliwack’s Prospera Centre, the Chiefs scored two goals in each of the three periods to win 6-4. Surrey’s goals came off four different sticks –

“The two games against the Chiefs were just sloppy all around. ”

DAMON JAMES / CONTRIBUTOR

Nicolas Pierog of the Surrey Eagles moves the puck away from the net during Monday’s BCHL game against the Langley rivermen in the South Surrey Arena. The Eagles lost 2-1. Michael Roberts scored in the first, Mulcahy in the second and Pierog and Danton Heinen each scored in the third frame.  The Eagles tightened up defensively p Monday, allowing just 21 shots-on-goal versus the Rivermen, while firing 29 on Langley netminder Brock Crossthwaite.  Despite the loss, it was a game Schaefer said he was happier with – “I liked our compete level,” he said – and hoped it was a sign his squad was ready to turn a corner and reel off

some wins.  Whether his players felt the same way, he quipped “you’re guess is as good as mine.” “But we’ve got meetings today, and we’ll have some good practices, so we’ll see where they’re at,” he said Tuesday. After the 1-3 skid, Surrey has a 9-14-1 record and though they still sit fourth in the BCHL’s Mainland Division – where they’ve been for weeks – but are now a full 12 points back of the first-place Rivermen.

And despite their position in the division, Schaefer insisted it was no time to worry.  “There’s a long way to go yet,” he said. “So it’s no time to panic, but it’s time to start getting some wins.” The Eagles hit the road this weekend for a pair of games in Prince George.  The Birds will battle the Spruce Kings – who sit second in the Mainland Division with a 13-7-2-2 record – on Friday night and again on Saturday before returning home.

ond place teams, the North Delta Devils earned two of a possible four points. The Devils upset the Richmond Sockeyes 4-3 in overtime on Nov. 4, before dropping a 7-5 decision to the Aldergrove Kodiaks Saturday in the Sungod Arena. Levi De Waal scored the winner in Richmond, two minutes into the second overtime period. North Delta took a one-goal

lead three times, but each time the Sockeyes pulled even. Blake Gorrill scored a shorthanded goal nine minutes into the game, but the teams were tied 1-1 after one period. Nyshan Basra scored for North Delta midway though the second for a 2-1 lead that would last just 98 seconds. Mitch Newsome, called up from the Valley West Hawks major midget team, made it 3-2 for the visitors early in the third period but Richmond replied just 44 seconds later.The Sock-

eyes outshot North Delta 45-25, and held a 9-3 edge in overtime. Nicholas Clark was a standout in the Devils goal, making 42 saves. Saturday against the Kodiaks, North Delta fell behind after just 18 seconds of play and trailed the rest of the way. Outshot 52-30, they trailed 4-1 after one period and 6-4 after 40 minutes. De Waal, Jayden Gill, Lucas Stratford, Jacob Gushue and Mack Wallace were the North Delta goal scorers. The Devils sit in the basement

Brossoit was drafted by the Calgary Flames in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, and after training camp in September was assigned to the Abbotsford Heat of the American Hockey League. He made his first appearance as a professional was on Oct. 18 as a backup, and he played the final 34 minutes of a 4-3 loss to the Oklahoma City Oil Barons in Oklahoma. Brossoit did not allow a goal, making nine saves. His first start two days later in Cedar Park, Texas was one he would like to forget. He made 33 saves in a 9-3 loss to the Texas Stars. A week later, the Flames reassigned Brossoit to the Alaska Aces of the East Coast Hockey League, where he was perfect in three starts against the Bakersfield Condors in Anchorage Nov. 1-3. He played six minutes in the first game, making eight saves in as many shots in a 6-3 win. He got the start in the next two nights and made 16 saves in each game for victories of 5-0 and 4-0. The Flames then dealt his NHL rights to the Oilers, who promptly placed Brossoit on their AHL affiliate, the Oklahoma City Oil Barons. Brossoit has yet to take to the ice for the Oil Barons, dressing for two games as a backup goaltender to Tyler Bunz.

Loss keeps Hawks from second place Valley West splits weekend series with Thompson Blazers by Rick Kupchuk A CHANCE to move

into second place has slipped past the Valley West Hawks. The BC Hockey Major Midget League team moved to within a point of the Vancouver Giants after

winning one of two games on the road against the Thompson Blazers. But the one loss was a 2-1 setback Saturday afternoon in Kamloops against a Blazers team that had gone winless in their first 12 games of the

season. Thompson scored once in each of the first two periods, and hung on for their first victory after defenceman Jamieson Ree of Surrey scored the lone Hawks goal with seven minutes to play. Valley West never

trailed in Sunday’s victory in Logan Lake, although a two-goal lead slipped away. Eric Callegari of Langley opened the scoring 11 minutes into the game, then assisted on a goal from Surrey’s Justin Wilde which made it 2-0.

A minute later, the Blazers got on the scoreboard then tied the score 2-2 with their second goal of the game in the last minute of the first period. Spencer Gerth of Langley and White Rock’s and Ty Westgard netted goals in the second period. The Blazers got one back in the third, but fell a goal short. Callegari with one assist and Jordan Funk with a pair each had two-point games. The Hawks are 10-6 (won-lost) on the season, and will look to defend their third-place standing next weekend against the Vancouver Chiefs, who are three points behind Valley West with two games in hand. The two teams face-off Saturday morning at 10:15 a.m. at the Langley Events Centre, and again Sunday at 11:45 a.m. at Planet Ice in Coquitlam.

S

imon Fraser University doctoral student Erick Oduor and international student Andreas Hovland are among the first students from Western Canada to participate in InStep, a prestigious global internship program with Infosys, one of India’s top technology companies. Oduor, of Surrey, who is in the School of Interactive Arts and Technology (SIAT) graduate program, did a nine-week stint working at the company’s Bangalore-based headquarters while Hovland, majoring in economics and anthropology at SFU, recently completed a 12-week business research project. “InStep provides opportunities for the best and brightest students to work on some of the most challenging projects. While the program began in 1999, this is the first year we have students from universities in Western Canada,” said V. Ganapathy Subramanian, head of Strategy and Planning at Infosys. “This is a clear recognition of the growing need to take advantage of the talent coming from Canada. We are happy to welcome the Western Canadian students to the program.” “SFU’s participation in the InStep program reflects our vision as an engaged university to provide students with unparalleled experiential learning opportunities at home and around the world,” added SFU President Andrew Petter. More than 1,250 students have been accepted for InStep internships to date, including students from some of the world’s top institutions, including MIT and Oxford. The University of Toronto was the

recent episode of a documentary television series called Parts Unknown showed a visit to Detroit, Michigan that included a tour of the Packard Automotive Plant. Allan Hill, a guide for the tour, reported that he had lived there by himself for the past seven years finding it “as peaceful as the north woods.” The show related the history of the place: opened in 1903; “the most advanced facility of its kind anywhere in the world”; “epically proportioned”—3.5 million square feet over one mile long and a quarter mile wide; the workplace for 33,000 people in the second world war. It stopped manufacturing automobiles in 1956 following Packard’s failed partnership with Studebaker and thereafter was leased by a variety of businesses until finally abandoned. But, says Mr. Hill, the utter devastation and decay the viewer sees happened quickly—within five years. In the ever-changing world of the ‘car’ century, these ruins are a symbol of a business that, perhaps for many reasons, lost its way. Smaller scale change in the car industry thus seems hardly worth mentioning aside from the fact that it, too, comes so abruptly and with such intense, widespread cultural resonance. Remember the family car of the 80s and 90s—the minivan? According to statistics compiled by WardsAuto.com, the sales decline that began 18 years ago is steepening to the point where the minivan share of the market at this year’s end is expected to be at its lowest point since “3.1 per cent in 1985.”

In 1995, minivan-lovers had 16 models to choose from. Today, reportedly, they have only six. And of these six, only three have higher sales at the end of October 2013 than at the same time in 2012, and none have a higher share of the light-vehicle market. Furthermore, at this point, Chrysler is said to be the only manufacturer planning “an overhaul of its minivan program,” albeit not for a couple of years. Stick-shift fans are also now so few that standard transmissions comprise of only four per cent of vehicle sales in North America, down from eight percent in 2003. Auto experts say they “think of them as endangered.” Whether in response or as a root cause of this decline, driving schools have all but phased out manual driving instruction. Jeremy Acevedo, a prominent auto analyst says, “The majority of 2013 … cars—67 percent—do not offer an option for manual. In the past, a stick shift guaranteed fuel economy, but increasingly efficient automatic and variable transmissions are a lot more fuel efficient.” He also cited changing driving habits as a factor noting (and perhaps extrapolating from distracted driving statistics), “today’s driver doesn’t want to be absolutely engaged.” In interesting contrast, European drivers, in large numbers still prefer stick shift driving including the choice of forgoing the cost of automatic transmissions. Lastly, the 67-year continuous run of one of the world’s most iconic ‘workhorse’ vehicles, the Land Rover Defender, was recently announced to be ending in December 2015. A British four-wheel-drive, off-road utility vehicle, Defender has been rendered obsolete by new European regulations regarding crash safety for pedestrians. The familiar square front end, designed in the late 1940s, is just too aggressive. …by Cedric Hughes, Barrister & Solicitor with regular weekly contributions from Leslie McGuffin, LL.B.
