Wheelchair-bound teen with brittle bone disease now out of hospital

RCMP seek charges in hitand-run by Kevin Diakiw JONATHAN FORERO just got home

from hospital on Wednesday, more than a month after being thrown from his wheelchair by a hit-andrun driver. On Nov. 5, Forero, 19, was thrown three metres from his motorized wheelchair when he was struck by the driver, who then fled. The collision occurred around 6 p.m., after Forero and his girlfriend had left Surrey Central SkyTrain Station. They Jonathan Forero were heading down 95A Avenue near 133 Street, and Forero was using the road, as there wasn’t a sidewalk. He remembers being tight to the side of the road, and hearing a car come up behind him. “I felt a big hit… I hit the ground, and I wasn’t unconscious, but I couldn’t move,” he said. The driver sped off. See VICTIM / Page 4

Get ready for SkyTrain delays TransLink to expand stations; $164M in upgrades will increase rapid transit capacity by Jeff Nagel SKYTRAIN PASSENGERS are in for three years of construction delays

as TransLink expands seven Expo Line stations to reduce platform congestion and prepare for an influx of new riders connecting via the Evergreen Line from Coquitlam. The biggest disruption from the $164-million project starts early next spring at Main Street-Science World, where most trains won’t stop for up to six months in 2014. Instead, passengers heading to or from Main Street will have to take

a two-car shuttle train, running every 10 minutes, that will take them as far as Waterfront or Commercial-Broadway stations, where they can transfer to regular trains. The other six stations slated for major upgrades are Scott Road, Surrey Central, New Westminster, Metrotown, Joyce-Collingwood and Commercial-Broadway. Jeff Busby, senior manager of infrastructure at TransLink, said those six stations are to remain open during construction, but passengers may be redirected through different entrances.

Service helps people get through the Christmas blues

Seasonal sadness comes in many forms by Greg Laychak NOT ALL holiday sadness is caused

Crossroads United Church offers a supportive space for those feeling sad this holiday season by Greg Laychak GEORGE GARRETT is no stranger to the Christmas blues.

These blues are not the jazzy carols heard in department stores at the end of the year, but are genuine feelings of sadness that many people experience every holiday season. Christmas is a time of year full of demands, expenses, and short, dark days. Add grief to the mix and it can make for a gloomy holiday. Garrett, a retired radio reporter, lost his son 26 years ago in a canoeing accident. “The last picture I have of my son was when he was home for Christmas,” says Garrett, adding it’s a particularly difficult time of year because of the emphasis on family. Recognizing that many people feel down during the holidays, Crossroads United Church is offering a “Blue Christmas” service. The event is not a typical Christmas service, says Rev. Cari Copeman-Haynes. “There’s no sense of expectation,” she says. “Whatever you’re wearing is okay, whatever your feelings are, it’s okay. We fully expect that people are going to be a little upset.” George Garrett In contrast to the Christmas Eve services, where there will be a lot of activity and noise, the Dec. 15 “Blue Christmas” event focuses on reflection. “There’s room for (everyone) in more than a physical way... in an emotional and spiritual way too,” says Copeman-Haynes, who will lead the service. She says Blue Christmas attendance changes from year to year in size and need, but anyone who comes is welcome. Garrett is no stranger to emotional Christmases. Last winter he had to place his wife, who has Alzheimer’s disease, in a care facility because it was becoming too difficult to look after her. “I confess I got a bit emotional when I went up just to say my son’s name and of course I was thinking about my wife’s situation too,” says the 79-yearold, who attended the service at Crossroads for the first time last year. Through the service, Garrett was able to share his grief and find support to help him deal with his difficult Christmas. The Blue Christmas Worship service will be held Dec. 15 at 3 p.m. at Crossroads United Church, 7655 120 St.

“The last picture I have of my son was when he was home for Christmas.”

Rev. Cari Copeman-Haynes, lead minister at Crossroads United Church in North Delta, prepares for the upcoming Blue Christmas service for people who are grieving or depressed over the holiday season.

by loss, grief or isolation. According to a UBC professor, the “Christmas blues” is a common phrase for holiday doldrums caused by financial stress, family pressures and busy schedules. Dr. Raymond Lam notes it’s important to differentiate between “the blues” and Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD,) which is related to the changing levels of daylight. “Many of our patients with SAD actually hold it together over the holiday season because there are so many things [they] have to do, and they crash in January,” says Lam, head of the mood and anxiety disorders program at the UBC department of psychiatry. Only one to three per cent of the population suffers from SAD, a form of clinical depression. But there’s a milder form of winter depression that affects up to 15 per cent of Canadians that Lam calls the “winter blahs.” People with the winter blahs experience physical symptoms such as low energy and oversleeping, Lam says. For people with mild symptoms, Lam recommends exercise and getting outside for exposure to light. “The brightness of the light isn’t necessarily related to how much light gets into your eyes, and we know the effect is through the eyes and not through skin exposure,” said Lam. He added that on a cloudy day, the light outside is still far brighter than any office. A lunchtime walk should be a part of your daily routine because it provides light and exercise, says Lam.

Surrey cancels outdoor rec programs Aquatic activities, cycling and cave exploration will be discontinued in the new year by Greg Laychak THE CITY of Surrey will be discontinuing many of

its outdoor recreation programs starting Jan. 1, 2014, citing cost, low participation and competition with the private sector as factors in the decision. Those most affected will be participants in aquatic activities as all boating, paddling, and boarding programs are scheduled to end. One past program participant who will feel the impact is Karen Loveys, a realtor who used the indoor kayaking program extensively. There’s a need being met for beginners in the water sport that the private sector isn’t fulfilling, she said. “[You can] learn what it’s like to flip upside down and pull the plug and exit and get out safely in a safe pool environment versus in the middle of the ocean,” said Loveys. “It’s much better to do it in the pool.” According to Loveys, the city is cancelling

important programs that the private sector actually uses as a resource to help beginners, often referring them to those services. But Lisa White, manager of community and recreation services of Surrey, said the number of people who used the programs wasn’t large enough to justify their existence any longer. “When we evaluated our ongoing programs this was a service that wasn’t one of our core programs,” said White. Instead, the city will focus on youth programs such as preschool camps, after-school programs, swimming, and skating. The city website now lists information about private alternatives for the sports and activities that were cut from the city’s offerings. “Those programs are in fact costing the city money and we are able to reduce our financial exposure given that we have groups and individuals who are willing to do it themselves,” said Coun. Tom Gill. See PROGRAMS / Page 4

SkyTrain: Bike rooms coming From page 1 The Expo Line is nearly 30 years old and the upgrades are part of TransLink’s strategy to prepare it for another three decades of service. The original SkyTrain line now carries 14,000 people per hour in each direction, with that volume limited to the capacity at the system’s tightest bottleneck. Earlier improvements

in 2009, including the addition of 48 new SkyTrain cars for the 2010 Olympics, boosted carrying capacity by 30 per cent. But larger, longer station platforms are now needed to actually deliver that extra volume. “We are planning for the line to carry 25,000 people per hour per direction,” Busby said. “If that were a freeway, that would be 24-lane freeway

carrying 12 lanes of traffic in each direction. That’s the people-moving capacity we think is required to meet the needs over the next 30 years or more.” Most urgent is expanding the line’s big junction station at CommercialBroadway, both to handle connecting Evergreen Line trains starting in 2016 as well as the 50,000 bus passengers that transfer there daily. Work is slated for fall 2014 to summer of 2016. Some of the most intensive construction will happen at Metrotown, the system’s second-busiest station. Work has been underway for months at Scott Road, adding a new elevator, a re-designed bus loop and other improvements, and is expected to wrap up this winter. Surrey Central’s upgrade is still in the planning stages, with no details available yet.

Among the improvements coming are secure bike storage rooms for Main Street, Commercial-Broadway, Joyce and Metrotown. Unlike existing bike lockers that are rented on a monthly basis, the storage rooms will be more flexible, allowing riders to store their bikes there by the day. There are also aesthetic improvements, including better lighting and more than $500,000 worth of public art. All of the seven station upgrades are to be done by the end of 2016. TransLink is spending the money because it was already approved in its 2012 plan, with $82 million contributed by the province and $41 million coming from the federal government. More stations also need upgrades, but those will wait until TransLink gets more funding for transit.

Victim: Happy From page 1 Forero – who has brittle bone disease, which makes his bones extremely fragile – suffered multiple leg fractures and broken bones around his shoulder. After a painful month in hospital, he is now home, and says he is doing “pretty good.” Within days of Forero’s story going public, a member of the public saw a purple Honda Civic with front end damage and called police. Police found the car, interviewed the driver, and are now recommending charges of failing to stop at the scene of an accident and obstruction of a peace officer. Surrey RCMP said it was highly rewarding to bring a quick conclusion to the investigation and take that news to Forero. “He’s been through a lot, and certainly he didn’t need to go through more,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet. The accused is a 32-year-old Surrey man who has no serious criminal history. Forero said he was happy to hear police had identified the person they think is responsible for the crash. “I was excited and happy,” he told The Leader Wednesday. “Hopefully I get to meet him.” He doesn’t wish any harm to the person who hit him, but wants him to take responsibility. If charges are approved by Crown counsel, the accused can be named publicly.

We say: Q In many cases, the best gift a person can give is simply spending time with someone, whether it’s visiting an older relative or calling to chat with an old friend. In short, they’re all people who bring their bad moods into a retail outlet to share with the staff and other consumers. Examples of bad behavior abound – and not just in our malls. There’s little joy to be found on our roads, either, as people zip around town – in a hurry, as always – in a fruitless effort to get all their last-minute holidays errands complete. Such road rage will only get worse, too, as the roads – and weather – get worse. And while this can be a tough time of year if your finances are

tight – or even if they aren’t – the holiday season doesn’t have to escalate into a fiscal or emotional crisis. After all, the most expensive item in the store is no gift at all if the giver is grinding their teeth about the cost and the resulting damage to their credit rating. There’s nothing intrinsically wrong about giving big gifts, but not at the cost of civility and peace of mind. There are any number of inexpensive ways of celebrating the holiday season that don’t require busting your bank balance or losing your mind. In many cases, the best gift a person can give is simply spending time with someone, whether it’s visiting an older relative you don’t often get the chance to see, or calling to chat with an old friend with whom you’ve fallen out of touch. Whether you’re on the giving or receiving end of such a gift, it’s likely to leave you with a good feeling that no material possession ever could. But if you still feel yourself becoming anxious or angry as the holidays approach, try taking a deep breath before exploding on the bad driver who cut you off, or on the rude shopper who refused to hold the door for you, lest their own buying mission be delayed. Relax, and try to keep things in perspective. It might make the next few weeks manageable – enjoyable, even. And it doesn’t cost a thing. – Black Press

s it too soon to urge a little peace and goodwill this Christmas? Probably not. Because we’ve all seen the alternative, and it isn’t pretty. Some of us, it seems, are so busy pursuing the material side of the holiday season that we’ve lost sight of the spirit. Stressed-out shoppers grimly hunting bargains in the aisles; kids screaming next to surly parents; and couples who look like they’re heading to a funeral instead of experiencing the joy of the season.

Hit big Don’t take the things you have for granted coal in the wallet

AS I WAS COMING home on the bus from a

long day at school, I noticed at the end of the bus loop there was a lady – she had been on the same bus, going to the same stop – walking around and seeming lost. I quickly found out that she had lost her sight and unfortunately the stop had not been part of her regular routine. So I felt obligated to help her. Therefore I approached her and asked if she needed help, and as a smile appeared across her face, she replied yes.

I later found out that she was going the same way as I was going back to Surrey Central SkyTrain Station from Production Way University Station – a long ride. As I helped her navigate home, she told me of her life and how she was still able to proficiently do everyday routines despite the loss of sight. This woman was so strong and inspiring. She found ways to retrace her steps from memory, able to navigate through places with touch and able to listen to

details so profoundly. It got me thinking that I take what I have for granted – my sight, touch, smell, hearing and taste. These traits are so natural to us, we sometimes do not think about what life would be like without them. So I just wanted to say thank you to the lady who inspired me and hopefully others to appreciate the senses that we were blessed with.

Kudos to flood of volunteers I JUST WANTED to say

how grateful I am to live in a community where we can count on local companies to step up and help those in need. This past weekend, Jas Singh from God’s Little Acre Farm in Cloverdale (a farm that grows produce for food banks and soup kitchens as well as fundraisers for local schools), had the brilliant idea to flood his fields (with the help of the Surrey Fire Department) to make an outdoor skating rink. He then invited everyone to come down and enjoy a truly Canadian experience rarely found in the Lower Mainland. Jas did this as a fundraiser to help cover the costs of next year’s seeds. The only problem was ice skates – not everyone has skates. Thankfully the amaz-

ing staff at Sports Replay in Langley stepped up and within hours of getting the phone call were at the farm with skates for all that needed them. And what about lighting? You can’t skate in the pitch black. Not to worry, the generous staff at United Rentals came out and set up some industrial lighting allowing for the community to enjoy skating under the stars. We should count ourselves lucky when local companies will help those in need with just a moment’s notice. Thank you Jas Singh, the folks at Sports Replay and United Rentals, and all that came for a skate for being the catalyst of good in our society.   Katrina Quinn

intense grief and loss resulting from the passing away of the champion of human rights and justice. Multitudes mourn and bid adieu to Nelson Mandela. He was the man who spent 27 years in prison to dismantle the apartheid regime and bring justice, equality and liberty to South Africa. Mandela had an indefatigable spirit that could not be broken easily. That was clearly visible in his political path from  prison to Parliament. His true beauty as a human being shone brightly during his presidency. In May 1994 I had an opportunity to attend the presidential inauguration ceremony in Pretoria. In the presence of large foreign dignitaries, Dr. Mandela addressed the nation and said it was time to heal. What a beautiful message he conveyed to his people to forget the past and focus on the future to build a prosperous country without bearing any vengeful nature. His scrupulous devotion to truth and impeccable devotion to the ethic of justice was faultless. His contribution to the cause of freedom, justice and integrity will remain etched in

posal for Surrey Fraser Docks is approved, as I fear it will despite the massive public objection to it, maybe a class action lawsuit should be considered.  After all, why do I get the feeling the folks at Port Metro Vancouver are paying no attention to our howls of protest? The lawsuit, if it came to that, could be based on many issues, but especially our health and quality of life; also the inevitable reduction in our property values. This insanity must be stopped or those responsible held to account.

ronment –involving a racist parent or guardian filling the child’s mind with bigotry – can act as a formidable hindrance to such racial harmony. However, education can, over time, plant a seed of tolerance that can reason one’s twisted thinking away from childhood-ingrained racist sentiment. Furthermore, not only does such education fill the mind with knowledge, it also contributes to the development of the brain’s “hard wiring,” thus enabling greater cerebral function potential.

and recovering addict, I am disturbed about the debate of the legalization of marijuana. My concern is if Dana Larsen had gathered the 400,000 signatures necessary for his Sensible BC campaign (the petition failed), it would have been just one step towards the legalization of marijuana. It frightens me to even think that marijuana might be around even more than it already is. It would also be more available to youth, who would be four times more prone to suffer from a psychiatric disorder like schizophrenia. Marijuana could even put them at risk of addiction, and I am sure no one would want that for their child. I recognize that people actually need marijuana for medical issues, which is fine. So let the people who need it have it. But why just let people have it because they want it? Legalizing it would just be going too far. Montanna Robertson

It cites declining use of postal mail – a billion fewer pieces of mail were delivered last year compared to 2006 – as households shift to online bill payments and other digital communication. The price of stamps will also go up from 63 to 85 cents each if bought in booklets, or $1 for individual stamps. It means up to 8,000 fewer postal workers will be needed, which Canada Post says will be shed by attrition, as nearly 15,000 workers are expected to retire or leave voluntarily over the next five years. “With its current labour costs, Canada Post has a much higher cost structure than its competitors in the private sector have,” Canada Post said in a press release. “This is simply not sustainable.” See THEFT / Page 9

Theft: A concern From page 8

The reduced workforce and other changes are expected to save a combined $700 to $900 million per year. A Conference Board of Canada report last spring found Canada Post would face losses of $1 billion a year by 2020 without major reform. Reaction has been mixed but one concern being raised is that many more banks of community mailboxes will be vulnerable to mail theft by identity thieves. There have been ongoing mail theft reports in communities like Belcarra that already have the clustered group boxes, as well as newly developed areas of Surrey, particularly Clayton. Surrey resident Craig Findlay says the community mailbox in his Fleetwood neighbourhood was broken into repeatedly and says Canada Post must make them more secure before converting the remaining urban neighbourhoods. “It’s going to be an exercise in futility as far as I’m concerned,” Findlay said. “They should try it in one or two places and find out for themselves how bad it’s going to be.” Findlay said Canada Post is right to seek ways to stop losing money. But he said it might be smarter to reduce home delivery to every second or third day, or else put group boxes in publicly accessible indoor areas such as malls, until mail thieves can be thwarted. Belcarra Mayor Ralph Drew said Canada Post has hardened the community boxes somewhat with antipry devices so they are less vulnerable to theft. “It’s not as bad as it was,” he said, but added mail theft from the boxes remains a continuing problem throughout the Tri-Cities.  “If somebody’s determined, they’re going to get in.” Drew said the complete transition away from doorto-door home delivery was predictable and inevitable. “Home delivery people really been subsidized by the other two-thirds of the Canadian public in terms of the cost of the system.” jnagel@blackpress.ca

Illness claims Surrey student

Sullivan Elementary girl succumbs to meningitis by Sheila Reynolds FRASER HEALTH says no

public health measures

are necessary after a Surrey child died from meningitis on the weekend. A letter was sent home to parents at Sullivan Elementary in Newton, where the kindergarten student attended school. The letter, written by Medical Health Officer Helena Swinkels, says

the girl’s illness was not meningococcal meningitis, but a noncommunicable form of the disease. She said no additional measures need to be taken to prevent illness at the school, adding “we do not anticipate there will be any further fur-

ther cases and will keep in close contact with the school health officer to monitor the situation.” Meningitis is an inflammation of the brain membrane and spinal cord and may be caused by viral, bacterial or fungal infection. sreynolds@surreyleader.com

It wasn’t until October 2013, after the Surrey RCMP Unsolved Homicide Unit reopened the case, that police arrested and charged Langlet. A first-degree murder conviction carries an automatic life sentence with no possibility of parole for 25 years. Langlet is also subject to a lifetime firearms ban.

nection with a brawl involving a busload of high school graduates in 2012 has been ordered to stand trial. Emmannuel Dario is charged with three counts of aggravated assault. His trial was ordered after a two-day preliminary hearing in Surrey Provincial Court. There is a publication ban on evidence from preliminary hearings. Surrey RCMP said the fight occurred when a chartered bus carrying about 50 men and women in their late teens stopped at a gas station in Cloverdale. Several of the youth had gotten off the bus and a confrontation occurred with two men in a car that was driving through the area, police said. Dario was allegedly driving the car. Police said the car was damaged and the men got out of the vehicle and began to fight with some of the bus passengers, many of whom had been drinking. Dario was slashed across the chest, said police, before he allegedly grabbed a board and swung it at the group, striking and injuring at least three people. Dario’s next court date is set for Feb. 6, 2014.

he longest article in the November 25, 2013 issue of The New Yorker magazine —the self-described ‘Tech Issue’—is called “The Self-Driving Car Arrives.” In 10 pages, it begins with a description of Google engineer Anthony Levandowski’s daily 43-mile commute from his home in Berkeley, CA to his office in Mountain View, CA in Google X’s clearly labeled “Self-Driving Car.” The vehicle is a Lexus equipped with various sensors: lasers providing threedimensional depth perspective, radar providing range enhancement, and cameras identifying signage and signals. The author, Burkhard Bilger, describes it as looking like “an ice-cream truck, lightly weaponized for inner-city work.” The inside of the car is ordinary looking with “a screen in the centre of the dashboard for digital maps; another above it for messages from the computer”, …and with buttons on either side of the steering wheel, “On” to the left and “Off ” to the right. The only “jarring element”, says Bilger, is the “big red knob” between the seats—the master kill switch—which Levandowski tells him he has never actually used. Mr. Levandowski has been commuting in the self-driving car “over surface streets and freeways, old salt flats and pine-green foothills, across the gusty blue of San Francisco Bay, and down into the heart of Silicon Valley” for over a year and a

half, and it is proving to be ideal on many levels. For one thing, from the moment he steps into the vehicle he is already on the job conducting first-hand research on the operational capabilities of the car itself, the behavior of the self-driving drivers around him, and the ebb and flow of the traffic. But we also learn that Mr. Levandowski has come to feel safer and less of a threat to other road users given the propensity of his brain to “pinwheel in half a dozen directions” when his focus should be on the “twoton hunks of metal hurtling around him,” especially on the homeward commute at the end of another long day. “People should be happy when I’m on automatic mode,” he said to Bilger. From this description of the advanced state of the prototype, the article reverses over the long and challenging road bringing it this far. All the usual elements we have come to expect in stories about wondrous technological invention are present: the deep roots in an early futuristic vision, the mix of military, monetary, and utopian motivations, the harnessing of individual genius in a collective effort under strong visionary leadership, the impossible challenges, and then the flashes of insight and inspiration that leap frog over the setbacks. Strictly speaking, announcing the arrival of the self-driving car is still premature. As the article points out, “If driverless cars were once held back by their technology, then by ideas, the limiting factor now is the law.” And who will build them is also a question mark. All of the major car companies continue to develop automatic add-ons and research the full self-driving vehicle but for various reasons cannot quite fully embrace this new paradigm…at least not yet.

man is in custody after six parked police cars were seriously damaged and Burnaby Hospital’s emergency department was flooded early Sunday morning. A nearby resident called police just after 1 a.m. Sunday when a man was seen trying to break into a rental truck parked near the community police office at Lougheed Mall, said Burnaby RCMP Staff Sgt. Major John Buis. Officers learned the suspect had driven a Jeep Cherokee SUV into the back of a police car before breaking into the five-ton truck. He backed the truck into two police cars, then severely damaged several more as well as the original Jeep while driving the truck, which he eventually crashed into a power pole. “He walked away and he was arrested without incident quite close to the scene,” said Buis. Officers took the man

one used in the Burnaby incident which had been reported stolen in Surrey on Saturday. “In 37 years of policing I’ve never seen anything like it,” said Buis. There were no injuries in any of the incidents. The man faces numerous charges, including mischief to property, possession of stolen property and theft over $5,000. The cost of the damage is not yet known but Buis noted a brand-new, fullyequipped  police vehicle costs about $45,000 so it will be “significant.” Burnaby Hospital’s ER remained open on Monday but with limited capacity, said Fraser Health Authority spokesperson Tasleem Juma.

Road checks stop 1,500 by Kevin Diakiw ON DEC. 7, Surrey

RCMP Traffic Services and general duty officers checked 1,500 vehicles for impaired drivers. Offences included 13 90-day roadside suspensions, two sevenday suspensions, one 24-hour suspension and one criminal charge of driving while impaired. “While we will continue to reinforce our road safety message this holiday season, we hope that residents will make the right choice when it comes to drinking and driving,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet. Impaired driving is still the leading criminal cause of death in Canada. On average, each December, every four days a person is killed in B.C. in an impairedrelated crash. The Surrey RCMP and its partners will be involved in various traffic safety and impaired driving enforcement initiatives throughout the city this holiday season.

Man who drugged, robbed, raped gets two more years in jail

$100,000

HOLIDAY

SWEEPSTAKES

Steven Beszedes pleaded guilty to 15 charges by Sheila Reynolds A SURREY MAN has been sentenced to two more years behind bars for drugging, sexually assaulting and robbing various victims over several years. Steven Beszedes pleaded guilty last spring to 15 criminal charges, including one of sexual assault, and multiple counts of criminal negligence, robbery and administering drugs to commit an indictable offence. Nine other charges were stayed. Beszedes has already been in custody for three years, since his arrest in late 2010. During his sentencing hearing last month, the Crown recommended Beszedes spend a further four years in jail, while his defence lawyer suggested an additional two years prison and three years probation would provide a longer supervision period. On Friday (Dec. 6), B.C.

Supreme Court Justice James Williams opted for the latter, keeping the 48-year-old in jail for another two years, followed by three years probation. The court heard that Beszedes bought a white powdered drug online, used it himself and then offered it to others in hopes he’d be able to sell it to them in the future. His victims, all but one of whom were women, would ingest the drug and immediately fall unconscious. It was then that Beszedes would take advantage of them. The victims were often vulnerable people such as drug addicts and sex trade workers. Many of the women woke up, sometimes a day later, naked or missing clothing, often in unsafe areas like parking lots or wooded areas. His only male victim was a 69-year-old who was seeking a casual sexual encounter and connected with Beszedes

on Craigslist. Beszedes and a woman went to his rural Langley home and offered him drugs, which he took and instantly passed out. Beszedes and the woman stole a basketful of the man’s belongings, including jewelry, cameras, credit and debit cards and computers. The man was found by his landlord and was taken to hospital, where tests revealed he had benzodiazepine – a strong sedative – in his system. Crown prosecutors believe it was the same drug Beszedes gave his other victims. A victim impact statement written by the man said the attack had altered his life forever and he no longer trusts anyone. A psychiatric report said Beszedes lacks insight into his offences and is at moderate risk to reoffend. His sentence also includes a DNA order and a lifetime firearms ban.

Satellite reserves opposed Metro, UBCM sound alarm on aboriginal land conversion by Jeff Nagel B.C. MUNICIPAL

representatives were in Ottawa Tuesday to hammer home their concerns over a draft federal policy that they fear may let new aboriginal reserves spring up in the midst of local cities. The revised additions-to-reserve policy under consideration by the federal government would allow First Nations to propose creating new reserve land outside their traditional territories – a major change. Representatives from the Union of B.C. Municipalities (UBCM) and Metro Vancouver told the Select Standing Committee on Aboriginal Affairs they support the addition of new reserves that are adjacent to existing ones, but not land that’s noncontiguous or outside traditional territories. Metro reps have before warned that the outcome could be satellite reserves – possibly established by faraway bands – that could be developed in contravention of local zoning and confound municipal planning. “We raised that issue,” Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin said, adding he’s hopeful federal officials may yet make changes to the draft policy before finalizing it. Daykin noted land within a municipality that is converted to reserve status would no longer pay local property taxes or utility fees. “If it becomes commercial or industrial, the municipality loses the ability to collect property tax on a high-valued piece of property,” he said. The House of Commons committee asked Daykin if he supported First Nations ownership of fee simple land in his city, and he said absolutely. Daykin noted the Kwantlen band obtained an old gravel pit from the province that it’s developing into housing, but noted it is subject to all municipal regulations and will pay taxes because it remains fee simple property. “That’s fine and I hope they make a bunch of money.” Other issues include utility servicing – if polluting effluent from

reserve property is improperly dumped into the local sewer system, the municipality or the region have no recourse. The B.C. delegation underscored that they want to see clearer rules for consulting cities and ultimately deciding whether a proposed reserve addition proceeds.

With Daykin was Prince George Coun. Murry Krause on behalf of UBCM and two senior administrators from Metro and UBCM. The additions-toreserve issue has been divisive at the Metro board. Some mayors have raised the spectre of First Nations buying up

and converting strategic land – possibly in downtown Vancouver – where businesses may then operate under looser rules and pay less in tax. Concern has also been raised that additions-to-reserve could be used to develop farmland now locked in the Agricultural Land Reserve.

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

RenoMe! with FortisBC contest names grand prize winner By Kerry Vital

One Vancouver Island homeowner has a lot to celebrate this holiday season after winning the RenoMe! with FortisBC contest. Melissa Tolsma of Nanaimo won the $10,000 prize for her outdoor space, which she can now put towards the renovation.

“I was leafing through the local paper one day and the ‘RenoMe! with FortisBC’ ad seemed to jump out at me off the page,” Tolsma says. “I couldn’t ignore it. I’m not usually a contest enterer, but I just had this weird feeling ‘you can win this contest’.” Over 7,000 votes were cast, and Tolsma is very excited.

“I’ve never won anything, really, so this kind of win is unbelievable!” she says. “I don’t think it will really sink in until I see my backyard at the end of the reno process.” Currently her backyard is only usable in the summer months, so Tolsma is hoping to be able to use her space year-round after the renovation. She and her daughter enjoy spending time outdoors, so the yard was the first place she thought of when she heard about the RenoMe! with FortisBC contest. “We plan to do lots of outdoor living year-round!” she says. “I’m envisioning plenty of weenie roasts and toe warming on those chilly spring and fall evenings when we

would normally have to retreat indoors.” As part of the contest, Tolsma received a rendering of what her space could look like from Sarah Gallop of Sarah Gallop Design Inc. Gallop included a hot tub heated by natural gas and an outdoor natural gas fire pit in her design, as well as space for entertaining outside. The design also features several levels to define the different spaces in the yard. “The space looked disconnected before,” Gallop says. “This gives (Tolsma) different zones in the yard while still being connected.” Gallop notes that many clients are now asking for natural gas

Sarah Gallop rendering

Sarah Gallop of Sarah Gallop Design Inc. envisioned an outdoor space with a natural gas hot tub, natural gas barbecue and natural gas firepit for Melissa Tolsma of Nanaimo. Tolsma was recently named the grand prize winner of the RenoMe! with FortisBC contest.

appliances in their homes; a trend that she believes will continue. “Natural gas brings warmth,” she says. “It obviously brings physical warmth but also a warm ambiance.” Among the things Tolsma will receive as part of her prize is a gift card from Coast Wholesale Appliances. One person who voted in the RenoMe! with FortisBC contest will win a $500 gift card of their own. A natural gas barbecue is one of the most popular appliances for a backyard. FortisBC notes that a natural gas barbecue can be extremely convenient for homeowners looking for fuel on demand, as you’ll never have to deal with running out of propane or charcoal. It also allows you to cook with different temperatures at the same time and control the heat more easily. Tolsma also plans to install a fire pit powered by natural gas. “I can’t wait to have the fire pit installed,” she says. “I see it as the focal point of the outdoor living space that Sarah Gallop has designed. Our house is under 1,000 square feet, so extending the living space outside is going to be awesome.” “It’s kind of like camping in your own backyard,” says Gallop. “You get the informality of outdoor space with the convenience of natural gas.” And convenient it is. Natural gas is available at the push of a button, so you no longer need to wait for your fireplace or cooktop to heat up or worry about running out of propane for your outdoor barbecue. Tolsma is also planning to purchase a new patio set as well as some new greenery to accent what she already has. The second and third place finalists, Gayle Curtis of Maple Ridge and Wendy Frose of Chilliwack, will each receive $2,000 towards their own renovations, for their kitchen and living area respectively.

1. A full night’s sleep ahead of a long drive is important. 2. It’s also a good idea to let a friend know when you’re leaving and the time you expect to arrive. 3. Fill the windshield washer bottle with seasonal cleaner and carry an extra container in the trunk. 4. Don’t forget to bring sunglasses – glare from snow can be hard on the eyes. 5. Wear (warm) clothes that allow good movement to steer and operate the foot pedals. 6. Bring water plus non-perishable food supplies on longer trips. 7. An emergency (first aid) kit. 8. Check the weather forecast, road conditions and for road closures on your route before heading out on a long trip. 9. Good winter tires are mandatory on most high-elevation BC highway routes during the winter. 10. If you must drive in bad weather, it’s a good idea to refuel when the tank drops below half full. If the car breaks down or gets stuck in the snow, having engine heat until help arrives could be important. Useful winter driving web sites: drivebc.ca, icbc.com

2014 Jeep Cherokee The Chrysler group is on a tear these days with month after month of consecutive growth and awards to back it up. Who would have thought a few short years ago that Chrysler, of the Detroit Three, would be in second place in Canada, just slightly behind Ford and well ahead of General Motors. This has been achieved by filling a few holes in their full-line offensive. For example, until a year ago, Chrysler didn’t have a compact car, now they do with the Dodge Dart. Most surprising is that the strong sales have established without have a vehicle to compete in the fastest growing segment, the compact SUV. Now, with the introduction of this all-new Jeep Cherokee, Chrysler has something to take on establish players like the Ford Escape, Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4. The new Cherokee has only been for sale for about a month now but sales for the Jeep brand are up more than 34 percent over last year. In addition, the new Jeep Cherokee just won its category (best new SUV under $35,000) as adjudged by the Automobile Journalist Association of Canada (AJAC). Looks Some might not remember the old boxy Cherokee that was sold in the 1990s; it was a very simple design that appealed to diehard Jeep enthusiasts. This new Cherokee is trying to win over new buyers, not just the Jeep faithful. It might look a bit odd at first but when you are in its presence, the design actually grows on you to a pint that it has a futuristic, very modern twist on an iconic nameplate. What you don’t see is the Italian Alfa Romeo platform that this Cherokee shares with the Dodge Dart. This provides a solid basis that produces a wonderful onroad experience and ruggedness for off-road duty. There is a special Trailhawk version of this Cherokee that has been designed specifically for off-road, with higher front and rear bumpers to help it traverse ditches and climb mountains. The more practical base front wheel drive (FWD) model starts at $23,495 and is the lowest priced vehicle in the compact SUV class. The All wheel drive (AWD) model is also a value leader and starts at $25,695

AMAZING DEALS ON

Inside There are several things that set this Cherokee apart from the competition and a big difference is the level of interior fit and finish. Many of the vehicles that compete in this class are rather basic inside and come covered in hard plastic and feature simple designs. The Cherokee is covered in soft-touch materials, comfortable seats and a large touch screen in the centre of the dash for connectivity. The base screen is 5-inches but a larger 8.4-inch screen is available on the $29,995 Limited model. In addition, all models get a second 3.5-inch screen imbedded in the instrument cluster that is fully programmable and provides custom readouts. The back seat isn’t huge but the seats again are contoured nicely and provide good comfort. They also slide forward to elongate the cargo area if larger objects need to be carried. The rest of the dash has a stylish design that is a good combination of the bigger Grand Cherokee and the functional Dodge Journey. Sweeping lines and attention to detail make this a class leader in terms of style and design. Drive Not content to use existing engines and transmission in this new Cherokee, Chrysler is showcasing brand new technology in this compact SUV, providing good fuel economy and value. All trim levels come standard with a 9-speed automatic transmission. That’s right, nine gears, the very first vehicle on the planet to come with this many cogs. Having a chance to drive it with the base 184hp 2.4L 4-cylinder through the canyons outside of Malibu California, I can report that the transmission is so smooth and refined that the driver forgets there is so much at work. The up side is the Cherokee is capable of 9.6.L/100km in the city and 6.4L on the highway. The platform is a gem. There is very little road or wind noise, the suspension is very well dampened and the steering feel is better than many in this class. END OPTIONAL CUT The 4-cylinder engine is a great choice for commuters and the handling is crisp and sure-footed, more like a sedan than an SUV. The optional V6 engine is the first application of the 3.2L V6 Pentastar engine. The bigger 3.6L is used across the Chrysler family but this continued on page 26

newly developed, smaller version is wonderful value as it is only $1,300 more to equip it on any Cherokee, from the least expensive FWD model to the most expensive AWD trim. For $1,300, you get 271hp and a lot more grunt for passing and highway runs. This would be the choice if you do a lot of highway driving to the cabin or skiing. The downside is the added weight of the V6 makes it less nimble compared to the 4-cylinder but both are excellent choices. In addition to carving though the mountains, I had a chance to drive over them in the Trailhawk off-road model. This really is the enthusiast version; it had no problem scampering up anything it came across from big boulders, to sand and mud. A lot of fun, but the reality is that most buyers will opt for the less extreme AWD models that have the ability to change their characteristics depending on which setting the driver chooses from snow, sport, mud/sand and low settings.

Verdict The starting price is the best on the market, the technology is second to none, and the ride is smoother and quieter than the competition and the interior class above. The styling does take a while to get used to but it does look better in person. Most people will equip the Cherokee with AWD and the middle North Edition that includes alloy wheels and added interior features for a reasonable $28,695. With the optional V6 engine, the price is $29,995. This is a lot of Jeep for the money and one that is a treat to drive. Now that Chrysler has a competent small SUV in their lineup, their position as the number two seller of vehicles looks strong for a while to come. zack.spencer@drivewaybc.ca The Lowdown Power: 2.4L 4-cylinder with 184hp or 3.2L V6 with 271hp Fill-up: 9.6L/6.4L/100km (city/highway) Sticker price: $23,495$32,195

Watched a guy labour for 20 minutes the other day scraping the ice from his windshield, side and rear windows. Then he jumped in his car and took off without paying any attention to the snow on the car roof. I figured that ten minutes into his journey the snow would slide down onto his windshield, obscuring his vision and thus putting him at risk of collision with some other innocent road user. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. What drives-u-crazy.

Cougars winless in Langley Valley West Hawks get a win, tie against Cariboo by Rick Kupchuk THE VALLEY West

Hawks took three of a possible four points from the Cariboo Cougars last weekend at the Langley Sportsplex.

The BC Hockey Major Midget League team upended the Cougars 5-3 Saturday afternoon, then came from behind for a 1-1 Sunday morning. Sunday’s tie was the

first of the season for the Hawks, who are in third place in the 11-team provincial league with a 15-6-1 (won-lost-tied) record. Saturday’s game was tied 1-1 after 20 minutes,

with Eric Callegari of Langley scoring for the home side. The teams exchanged goals again in the second frame, with Cloverdale’s Jordan Funk netting the Hawks goal. The Cougars went up 3-2 with eight minutes remaining in the game, but Valley West responded the three unanswered goals in the final seven minutes of play. Matt Bradley of Surrey tied the game, then Paul Savage added the winning tally with two minutes to go. Savage, from Surrey, scored again a minute later into the empty net. Bradley added a pair of assists to his goal for a three-point game. Cariboo led to most of Sunday’s game, taking the lead 11 minutes into the game and maintaining the 1-0 lead for 34 minutes. A goal from Ty Westgard of White Rock with five minutes to play allowed the Hawks to earn the tie. Now six points back of the first-place Okanagan Rockets (18-3-1), the Hawks will visit the Rockets next weekend for a two-game series Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.

by Rick Kupchuk IN A SEASON of change

in B.C. boys high school basketball, the Holy Cross Crusaders have made one of the biggest moves. The small Surrey school has bumped its senior boys team into the highest level of competition, the new Senior AAAA category, and early in the season are proving to be very competitive. The Crusaders lived up to their number-six ranking in the provincial polls, placing third at the 16-team Telus Classic last week. Holy Cross, a team which placed third in the Senior AA provincial tournament in Kamloops last March, knocked off Surrey rival Panorama Ridge Thunder 72-33 Wednesday then topped the Abbotsford Panthers 88-80 on Thursday. Both games were in Abbotsford. At Sir Winston Churchill in Vancouver Friday, they lost 57-45 to the host Churchill Bulldogs. They finished the tournament with an 82-68 victory over the Handsworth Royals Saturday night at the university of British Columbia. “We should have been in the final,” said Crusaders head coach Matt Lechasseur. “We lost a game Friday we could have won.” In Saturday’s game, Jonathon Kongbo scored 31 points, and was named a tournament all-star. Henry Maduabueke netted 21 points, and received a $1,000 HSBC scholar-

And the kids can play at any level and have the same championship experience.” While a Senior AA school by population, the Crusaders made the decision to move up to the new Senior AAAA level, considered to be the highest level of competition. But under the new rules, moving back down isn’t as easy. Teams moving up must stay at the higher level for a minimum of two seasons.

Jensen, Mary (Nee Derbowka) May 29,1913 Dec. 1, 2013 Our much loved mother and granny passed away peacefully at Blenheim Lodge with her daughter, Joanne, by her side. She was predeceased by her husband, Ed,in 1993. She is greatly missed by her two daughters, Joanne (Larry) Tench, and Lynne (Ken) Larson; 5 grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren, plus two soon to be born. Mary was born in Radisson, Saskatchewan, and grew up on a homestead near Borden, Saskatchewan with her 4 brothers and two sisters. She met Ed in Victoria and was married there in 1945. They moved to Surrey where she remained until 2008. As a long time resident of Surrey she will be remembered as a keen bowler, a score keeper for the Whalley Little League, line dancer, golfer and a prolific walker who found and returned many wallets. Her passion was her garden, particularly flowers, but she also loved sewing, quilting, knitting, and crocheting. Mary took great joy in gathering the family around her for home-cooked feasts. She survived many major illnesses but never stopped her walking. She took up traveling in her 80s, venturing away from North America for the first time. She lived on her own into her 90s when macular degeneration made life more difficult, although it didn’t slow down her walking, wits, or shopping for snazzy clothes. Thanks to the staff both at Blenheim Lodge and VGH for their care and kindness. Memorial Service will be held Saturday, Dec. 21st at the Knox United Church at 5600 Balaclava Street. In lieu of flowers, donations to the CNIB would be appreciated, at P.O. Box 9410 Stn. Terminal 1, Vancouver, BC. V6B 9Z9
