A vigil for Julie Crowd packs Holland Park to celebrate the life of murdered Surrey mom by Boaz Joseph

BOAZ JOSEPH / THE LEADER

Cassidy Patton, 16 (left), Kathryn Morse 13, and Sarah Morse, 16, took part in a Jan. 18 candlelight vigil at Holland Park for Julie Paskall, a 53-year-old Surrey mother who was beaten to death outside the Newton Arena in December.

A CANDLELIGHT VIGIL was held Saturday in memory of slain hockey mom Julie Paskall. Hundreds of people, including several Surrey Minor Hockey teams, attended the event. Julie was a “great mom, first and foremost,” said her husband Al following two minutes of silence. “Her greatest attribute was her ability to take care of others.” At 9:30 p.m. on Dec. 29, 53-year-old Julie Paskall was waiting to pick up her 16-year-old son who was volunteering as a referee at a tournament near the Newton Ice Rink at 7120 136B St. The longtime time-keeper with Surrey Minor Hockey was in the parking lot when someone clubbed her in the head and beat her See HUSBAND / Page 4

No jail for former city planner Akonyu Akolo sentenced to 15 months house arrest for breach of trust by Kevin Diakiw and Sheila Reynolds A FORMER City of Surrey planner has been sentenced to house arrest instead of jail, against the wishes of both the Crown prosecutor and his own attorney. Both Crown and defence lawyers had recommended prison time for former longtime city planner Akonyu Akolo, ranging from three to 15 months for trying to solicit money from a developer.

On Friday afternoon in B.C. Provincial Court in Surrey, Akolo was given a 15-month conditional sentence to be served in the community. The first nine months he is under house arrest – only allowed to leave his home for things such as medical appointments – while the last six months he will have an 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew. He must also complete 50 hours of community service. Crown prosecutor Kevin Marks had

asked the court to sentence Akolo to 15 months in prison. Defence lawyer Jennifer Currie suggested three to four months of jail time, arguing that while a lengthier sentence of nine to 12 months of community service was an option, the defendant needed to work and provide for his family and a job was awaiting him in Africa.

TransLink vote could sway civic election outcomes, pundits say Anti-tax candidates may win more power on councils in November polls by Jeff Nagel

THE OUTCOME of this fall’s civic elections across Metro Vancouver may be altered by holding the promised TransLink referendum at the same time, prompting an unusual surge of voters aligned with one side or the other. Several observers say that’s a strong possibility if the province pushes forward with the plebiscite on new transit taxes that could then dominate local campaigning. Transit riders could come out in force to vote “yes” in the referendum, potentially pushing pro-transit candidates onto local councils. But more likely, some watchers say, is a stampede to the polls of anti-tax voters who want to pay no more for TransLink and will help elect conservative councillors and mayors as a byproduct of defeating the referendum. A Nov. 15 TransLink vote would boost the “notoriously low” turnout in civic elections, said political analyst David Schreck, but he added it might also sweep into power candidates similar to Toronto Coun. Doug Ford. “Usually the people who are encouraged to turn out are the people who are angry and upset and opposed, not the people who want to pay more taxes to fund transit,” Schreck said. those are the ones who would be casting their “I know a “And votes for city councillors and mayors and school lot of mayors trustees.” Jordan Bateman, B.C. director of the Canadian don’t want to Taxpayers Federation, said Metro mayors have see it mixed up themselves to blame for the timing because they were with the government-promised referendum in a municipal angry and failed to reach a swift agreement with Transportation Minister Todd Stone so it could be held sooner election.” than the fall. “If I was a mayor in a community where TransLink Lois Jackson is not popular but I’m proposing big tax increases to give TransLink more dough, I’d be very nervous about this election,” Bateman said. So far no question has been announced and Stone and Premier Christy Clark have sent mixed messages about what they think it should be. Mayors have said they first want the province to reform TransLink governance to give them more control over spending priorities if they are to support the referendum. “I know a lot of mayors don’t want to see it mixed up in a municipal election,” Delta Mayor Lois Jackson said. But she said the timing is good and will spur better voter turnout than the traditional 18 to 30 per cent while also lowering the cost. “People really do want to have a say in how they’re going to pay for it, recognizing that there is going to be payment made whether it’s by tolls or road pricing or whatever.” See WATTS / Page 5

Many questions remain unanswered in regards to a referendum on funding for the region’s transportation network.

Premier says referendum belongs on municipal ballot by Jeff Nagel PREMIER CHRISTY Clark is sticking to her guns that

a referendum on increased transit funding in Metro Vancouver should take place at the same time as the November municipal elections despite concerns from mayors. The premier was asked Thursday if the plebiscite should be delayed or moved up so it doesn’t hijack the municipal election campaigns. “Elections are supposed to be about issues,” Clark said, adding transit is clearly one of the top three issues facing local government in the region. “It’s absolutely the right place for it to be,” she told

reporters. “The referendum in the midst of a municipal campaign means that every voter, every politician will be focused on one of the most important issues for people in the Lower Mainland.” Clark said she hopes it improves the low voter turnout that typifies civic elections. “They’ll know where their local Christy Clark politicians stand on that issue, and they’ll turn up to vote because they’ll know that it matters.”

incident that is now being investigated. At 10:15 p.m. Friday (Jan. 17), the recently formed Independent Investigations Office (IIO) was called in to probe a police shooting at video-online] 11800-block of 98A Avenue in North Surrey. www.surreyleader.com Police were called to a residence to “check on the welfare of an adult male,” according to an IIO release. Some time after arriving, and for reasons yet unknown, a police officer shot the man. He later died in hospital. Because of the preliminary nature of the investigation, few other details were known as of The Leader’s press deadline Monday morning.

Man attacked with machete in separate incident A GROUP OF PEOPLE attacked a man with a machete in Newton Monday morning, sending him to hospital with several deep lacerations to his upper body. At about 1:05 a.m., Surrey RCMP received several calls from people in the area of 141 Street and 75A Avenue that four to five people were striking a lone man with what was described as a machete. The 25-year-old victim suffered slashes to his body caused by an “edged weapon,” according to police. He is in hospital in stable condition. Police say at least one of the attackers was known to the victim and that the attack was planned ahead of time. Witnesses described seeing the suspects flee in van, silver or grey in colour. Anyone with further information is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).

Public Open House East Clayton Transit Oriented Area (TOA) Concept Plan The public is invited to attend an Information Meeting on Monday January 27th, 2014. This Information Meeting will provide residents, land owners, business owners and other interested neighbours with an opportunity to view and comment on a draft Land Use Concept Plan for the East Clayton Transit Oriented Area. The proposed objective of the East Clayton TOA Plan process is to produce a land use plan to guide future transit-oriented development that will integrate fully with future rapid transit facilities on Fraser Highway and create a high quality, sustainable mixed-use centre for East Clayton. The East Clayton TOA is approximately 16 hectares (40 acres), and is bounded by 188 Street to the West, Fraser Highway to the South, the future 192 Street diversion to the East, and a residential laneway just south of 67 Avenue to the North. This Neighbourhood Meeting will be held on: Date: Time: Place:

Police believe the killer, who is still on the loose, may be the same person who attacked a woman getting off a bus at the Newton bus exchange on Dec. 16. The Surrey RCMP did not send out a public release about that attack because they didn’t believe it was severe enough or represented a trend. Paskall’s murder reignited debate about safety in Newton and prompted residents to take action. The Newton Community Association organized a

forum for concerned residents after the killing, where people called for several measures, including more foot and bike police patrols; enhanced community policing; better communication with city workers and private companies; and closed circuit surveillance cameras. “We don’t need to change the laws, we don’t need to change the courts,” said an emotional Al Paskall at Saturday’s vigil. “We need to change ourselves. We’ve let ourselves get away from the community and taking care of each other.”

From page 1 In delivering his sentence Friday, Judge Michael Hicks said a short jail term would not serve as enough of a deterrence. Such crimes, Hicks said, are “difficult to detect… and must be denounced in the strongest terms.” Akolo, who oversaw development plans for South Surrey, pleaded guilty to breach of trust by a public officer last September. He was fired from his City of Surrey job in 2010 and criminally charged the following year after a developer reported his conduct to the city and police. The court heard Akolo, now 48,

offered to take $30,000 for what he called “professional consulting services” from the developer, in exchange for not cashing two cheques worth $65,000 in fees to the city. Akolo claimed he had forgotten about the cheques after placing them in a drawer and travelling to Uganda to tend to his dying sister. He said he didn’t deposit them later, after the development was approved, because he feared for his job if his mistake was noticed. Judge Hicks called Akolo’s actions an “exercise of remarkably poor judgment” in an otherwise clear history. He has no prior criminal record.

Akolo had worked for the city for 17 years. He originally faced five charges – bribing an agent, corrupt municipal official, breach of trust by a public officer, giving false account to deceive principal, and fraudulent concealment. The City of Surrey also has a civil lawsuit against Akolo over missing funds. In a suit filed in April 2010, the city claimed unnamed developers acted in conspiracy with Akolo to bilk the city out of various development fees. The city also accused Akolo of using the funds he took to help purchase his home in North Delta. Those allegations have yet to be proven in court.

Surrey Board of Education Invites public input to its 2014/2015 Operating Budget The Surrey Board of Education invites your submissions regarding program and service priorities as the board considers its 2014/2015 operating budget. Each year, the board works to sustain priority programs and services to support students across the district. As was true in past budget planning cycles, district needs outpace the funds the board will receive from provincial government grants. This means there are difficult choices to be made in order to achieve the balanced budget required by law and ensure student needs are met in the best way. In coming weeks, the Board will meet with employee groups and community stakeholders, including the District Parent Advisory Committee, to share details of the budget challenge and to obtain input. Other community members are welcome to submit ideas, questions and suggestions regarding board priorities, and potential budget reduction ideas by writing to: Mr. Wayne Noye, Secretary-Treasurer School District No.36 (Surrey) 14033 92nd Avenue, Surrey, BC V3V 0B7 Telephone: (604) 596-7333 Fax: (604) 595-6307 or Email: budget@surreyschools.ca Written submissions should be received no later than 4 p.m. on Friday, February 28, 2014.

Watts: Opposes transit referendum “In some areas it could have a real impact on the election,” he said. Most mayors wanted the province to simply authorize a new funding source to raise billions of dollars for new rapid transit lines and improved service. They suggested a vehicle levy, a regional share of the carbon tax, a 0.5-per-cent regional sales tax or regional bridge and road tolling.

Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts and Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson both opposed putting the TransLink referendum on the Nov. 15 ballot at a Vancouver Board of Trade panel discussion Thursday. Neither mayor wants to have a referendum at all. Both say expanded transit is crucial and a failed referendum could be disastrous to the region’s future. Clark has also said the province should take a neutral stance on the referendum, and not lead the “yes” campaign. “I’m not clear how they could or would take a hands-off approach,” Watts said. “It’s a provincial initiative that was announced by them.” Watts would not say if she will campaign in support of more transit funding, saying it’s premature since the referendum question hasn’t been determined. Port Coquitlam Mayor Greg Moore, Metro’s board chair, questioned whether the referendum result could be considered valid if it’s held in November but the turnout doesn’t improve.

Nix double-dipping

C

oncerns about double-dipping among politicians are not going away. Despite a great deal of publicity surrounding the many municipal elected officials who were elected to the B.C. legislature in the May provincial election, it appears that at least one just can’t help taking two paycheques – even though he is clearly dividing his time up to do two jobs. Pemberton Mayor Jordan Sturdy has been getting paid as MLA for West Vancouver-Sea to Sky, and also billed taxpayers for more than $15,000 in expenses incurred before Sept. 30. He was also still getting paid $25,000 per year as Pemberton mayor. This is clearly unfair to taxpayers. A number of municipal officials, including Sturdy, did not resign after they were elected in May, largely to avoid the costs of holding byelections. These include Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender, who went on a leave of absence from his job as mayor of the city, and has not been paid. Sturdy resigned his mayor’s job earlier this month. Surrey-Panorama MLA Marvin Hunt remained on Surrey council – a move that saved taxpayers in this city close to $600,000 in a byelection cost. In Coquitlam, two members of council who were elected to the legislature resigned, so there was a necessity for a byelection. Hunt has not been paid as a member of Surrey council. Doug Bing, who remains on Pitt Meadows council while also sitting as an MLA, is also not being paid. They chose not to collect salaries while continuing to do their municipal jobs. Their decisions are laudable, but their good intentions obviously did not rub off on their caucus colleague Sturdy. The provincial government can easily correct this issue. It can require than any person elected as an MLA must forego any civic salary they are entitled to after being sworn in if they do not resign their municipal seats. Some have suggested provincial and municipal election timelines should be aligned. But implicit in this suggestion is that municipal politicians should be elected to four-year terms. That would remove accountability for municipal decisions even further from taxpayers. A simple change to the rules newly elected MLAs must follow would end the double-dipping. – Black Press

eil Young’s anti-oilsands concert tour was the perfect distillation of the American enviro-assault on its dependent northern neighbour that’s been going on for a decade or more. After touring Fort McMurray in his electric car with actor-turned-protester Daryl Hannah, the 68-year-old Young covered all the big propaganda hits and added his own fantasy facts. It looks like a war zone up there! Hiroshima! If it keeps going it will be like the Moon! There’s no reclamation! Tar sands oil is all going to China, and that’s why their air is so bad! All of those statements are false.  And then Young dropped his own nuclear bomb, claiming cancer rates in Fort Chipewyan are 30 per cent higher than, well, somewhere else. Chief Allan Adam of the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation has cited a discredited study by former community doctor John O’Connor to press the same claim. The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta reviewed O’Connor’s claims in 2009. It concluded that “Dr. O’Connor made a number of inaccurate or untruthful claims” about

horizon, still expanding due to hydraulic fracturing. Young could have visited North Dakota, where the second shale oil train explosion luckily didn’t kill anyone. It seems there will be no remake of Young’s classic Kent State lament dedicated to 47 Dead in Old Quebec. That’s American oil, so no protests. Chief Adam was frank in an interview on CTV about using the “Honour the Treaties” tour to strengthen his legal position. Young’s concert tour put $75,000 in his fund to pay lawyers. Oil isn’t the only thing being extracted here. By the end of the tour Sunday, Young and Adam conceded they weren’t trying to shut the Athabasca oilsands down, just start a dialogue. Thanks to uncritical media coverage, there will no doubt be discussions at dinner tables and in classrooms all over the world about the terrible Alberta tar sands and the cancer they don’t actually cause.

Quick Minors can mix with alcohol Shame on Delta fixes will councillors not cut it I AM writing in response to Brenda

IN REFERENCE to the Newton

Community Association meeting that I attended on Jan. 6 at the Newton Senior Centre, I would first like to point out that volunteers are an asset with our police, not instead of our police. We must increase our police force so we have the manpower to better serve our city. If the City of Surrey has the ability (money) to build a new city hall for $10 million, surely they can find more of that money so that we can add to our police force.  I felt at the meeting that the main focus was to concentrate on  quickfix (cheap) solutions by increasing the manpower in volunteers. I agree that this would be a good pipeline or source of manpower for the police,  but we do not want to replace our police force with volunteers.

Anderson’s column Jan. 9 on allowing minors into pubs (“Raise a glass to no kids”). If every family that wanted to dine in a pub was made up of adults and toddlers, then I would agree with Brenda.  What she has failed to recognize is that there are more families with children between six and 18 than there are five and under. When our kids were toddlers, our goal was to get into a restaurant, eat, and get back out again as quickly as possible. I can’t imagine parents wanting to linger when dealing with a bored child. If it’s simply a matter of conduct, our sons as teenagers were much better behaved than some adults I have seen in pubs.   We have personally experienced the frustration of wanting to stop for a meal (not a fast food pit stop), but our teenage sons were not permitted in the pub so we were left with the option of driving around looking for fine dining that would not put us in the poor house or family dining. My kids aren’t crazy about sitting next to the Pirate Pak set either. There is a compromise though, one that has been in place in resort communities like Whistler for years. Minors are permitted in pubs until 8 p.m. provided they are accompanied by an adult.   

I WAS surprised to read in the

CBC NEWS PHOTO

A letter writer argues youth in the six-to-18 age group can fit in quite nicely in pubs, and the older ones can even act as designated drivers. Another very serious point that Brenda raised was the issue of parents drinking for “hours” before strapping their kids into car seats then hitting the road. I hope she isn’t suggesting it would be okay to drink and drive as long as kids weren’t in the back seat. The flip side is that my husband and I have been able to enjoy a drink or two with dinner, after which our

17-year-old designated driver got us safely to our destination.   What I find interesting, now that our sons are all of legal age, is their decisions on where to spend their social time is usually based on where the food is the best and not the age of the patrons.  Wendy Gage, Delta

Jan. 14 edition of The Leader that American-owned BNSF Railway is planning to build a siding track along the edge of the bog and Delta Nature Reserve from south of 64 Avenue to north of 72 Avenue. The track is being built to allow the proposed new coal trains to pull over and let faster freight and passenger trains go by. The volume of train traffic and noise along the line and through our community, to say nothing of the coal dust, will increase dramatically once the coal trains start running. I was astounded to read that Delta council defeated a motion by Coun. Jeannie Kanakos requesting further information regarding environmental and quality-of-life impacts. Whose interests are the members of Delta council elected to protect – the interests of the citizens of Delta or the interests of American coal exporters and American-owned railways? Shame on every council member who voted to defeat this motion. The voters of Delta deserve better.

Then on Friday at 1 a.m., a home near 143 Street and 82 Avenue, less than four kilometers away from the previous blaze, caught fire. Residents of that home were away on holidays, and no one was hurt. Police say both fires are considered suspicious, but investigators do not believe they are linked in any way. Both remain under investigation.

Man ‘sorry’ for Sikh marker incident apology accepted by South Asian leaders will defuse tension over the lack of punishment for a man who urinated on a Komagata Maru monument. There was fresh outrage among Sikhs Tuesday when Vancouver Police announced there would be no criminal charges in the relation to the December incident. On Thursday, Vancouver Police Chief Jim Chu said the man is a “severely addicted mentally ill” resident of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside who signed an apology. “I am sorry for what I did that day at the monument. I didn’t want to hurt anyone,” the apology states. Chu said the suspect needs “the health system, not the justice system.” The Komagata Maru’s 376 South Asian passengers were blocked from disembarking in Vancouver for two months in 1914 and were ultimately forced to return to India.

Wildcats head of the class at RCMP Classic Tamanawis wins four straight by 40-plus points at all-Surrey high school tournament

Wildcats completed a dominant run through the competition at the 23rd annual all-Surrey high school basketball tournament with an 88-46 victory in the final game. “I think we came out with a lot of energy, it meant a lot to the guys after losing in the final last year,� said Tamanawis head coach Mike McKay, referring to an 89-70 loss to the White Rock Christian Academy Warriors. “They took it hard last year and wanted to come out and make up for it.� The Wildcats were successful at both ends of the court through the opening 20 minutes,

frustrating the Dragons offense while building an early 30-point lead. Akash Grewal started the scoring with a three-point shot to give the Dragons their only lead of the game at 3-0 just seconds in. His second trey minutes later cut a Tamanawis lead to 8-6, but it was the only points the Dragons could score in the opening quarter. By the time Fleetwood Park had their first two-point bucket of the game it was early in the second quarter when the Wildcats had raced out to a 36-6 advantage. Their lead didn’t drop below 28 points the rest of the way.

Grewal, who hit another three-point bucket in the second half, was the top Fleetwood Park player on offense with nine points. Throughout the week, Tamanawis demonstrated why they are ranked second among Senior AAAA teams in B.C. Their 42-point win over Fleetwood Park in the final was their lowest margin of victory in the tournament. In their championship run, Tamanawis defeated the Princess Margaret Lions 97-44 on Tuesday, humbled the Queen Elizabeth Royals 111-30 on Wednesday, then stopped the Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers 95-52 in Friday night’s semifinal game. “They definitely had a chip on their shoulder and they proved they’re the class team of the tournament,” said Fleetwood Park head coach Nick Day. “Placing second out of 23 teams isn’t bad but we wanted to make it more of a game and we fell just a bit short.” For Tamanawis, it was their second RCMP Classic title in three seasons, while for the Dragons it was their fifth loss in as many trips to the final. “We’ve been to the final five times and we’ve been pounded every time, so what do you do?” asked Day. “It was WRCA four times and now these guys. It’s disappointing, but they’re a very good team.” The Dragons won’t see the Wildcats again this season, as Fleetwood Park is one of the top-ranked Senior AAA teams in B.C. “We start three Grade 11 so we’re a young team,” said Day. “They have their sights on competing for a 4A title, we have our sites set on competing for a 3A title. So the goals are the same for both teams.” Bains was named the tournament’s Most

Valuable Player, with Curtis Harvey of the Semiahmoo Totems winning the Most Inspirational Player award. First-team tournament all-stars included Sukhraj Biring of

A

t a well-kept home on a quiet tree-lined street in Newton, Wayne Ryan remembers seeing the bunches of balloons hanging inside the house, which was decorated with various ribbons and signs celebrating the birthday of a six-year-old girl. There was an upright vacuum cleaner in the kitchen and the body of a young mother was laying on the floor. As he made his way to the second floor of the house, Ryan followed a small trail of blood that ended at a closed bedroom door. Opening the door, he remembers seeing a young girl wearing a beautiful party dress lying face up in the middle of her room. She had been stabbed multiple times – so hard the knife handle had left an imprint in her chest. The images from that day are indelibly imprinted in Ryan’s mind, making him unable to attend a birthday party to this day without reliving the visions. Ryan is a 19-year veteran of the Surrey RCMP and yet the memories from that day have never faded. Following the arrest of the murderer – a family friend of the victims – Ryan’s job was to pick him up in Coquitlam and bring him to Surrey for a full interview. “I had many years as a hostage negotiator and interviewer, but I lost it that day. I had to use every ounce of energy to leave the interview room” after the suspect showed no remorse, Ryan said. “I could have probably executed him and gone for dinner that night feeling no remorse myself. That was a failure on my part. That really affected me. You learn you’re human.” After having a small article published in the RCMP Veterans’ Association newsletter about life as a police officer, Ryan decided he wanted to tell some of the real life stories about working in law enforceEVAN SEAL / THE LEADER ment and the emotional toll it Retired Surrey RCMP officer Wayne Ryan has written Souls Behind the Badge, a personal often takes on members and account of the toll policing often takes on officers. their families.

POIRIER, Todd July 2, 1962 - Jan 5, 2014 A bright light of the Poirier family left each of us. Todd had a reservation in Heaven. He was a gentle spirit who never hurt anybody in his lifetime. On January 5th, 2014 Toddy returned home to God. Todd was born in Weston, Ontario to the most dedicated Mom a special needs child could ever ask for. His Mom, Marie, carried Todd all of his days. Dad, scout leader throughout the happy life Todd had; preceded him in passing. He will have been there to greet Todd as he crossed over. His loving sisters, Dawn, Dana, and Dayle (John, Hannah) filled with lasting respect for a brother we admired. All of us that remain here stay strengthen by the gift Todd was to each of us. Gratitude to Semiahmoo House Society for all they have done for Todd over the years. They have earned their wings in our book. To say that Todd will be missed is an understatement. He has only moved onto a higher plane. Beyond the earth’s sunshine into God’s hands. Reachable still within thoughts and prayers, all the good times shared will be cherished and forever celebrated. Todd’s life was honored and celebrated with family and friends on Jan 20, 2014.

“My family and I have been customers of Prime Insurance for 15+ years. The service from the staff has always been excellent. Kul has gone above and beyond for me on more than one occasion. In fact, I am so happy with Prime Insurance that I would not consider going elsewhere, and every year, when it’s time to renew my vehicle license, I come all the way from downtown Vancouver just to get it from Kul. – JL Tanc “My husband Steve & I have been dealing with Prime Insurance for the last 3 decades. Their service is exceptional. They are always friendly and knowledgeable. Even though we’ve moved an extra half hour away, we still go to Prime Insurance.” – Lianne G.
