Five-year racing deal inked By Jennifer Lang Members of B.C.’s harness racing industry – particularly the horsemen at Fraser Downs – are breathing a sigh of relief. Stakeholders reached agreement last Friday on a deal that guarantees live racing at Fraser Downs, and extends the funding arrangement, for the next five years. The multi-year deal was agreed to by Great Canadian Gaming Corp., which operates Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino and Hastings Racecourse, and the standardbred and thoroughbred sector. The deal, finalized by the B.C. Horse Racing Industry Management Committee, is subject to approval by the provincial Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch. “We feel this will create an atmosphere of stability that will benefit breeders, owners, trainers, bettors and race track personnel,” management committee chair Douglas S. Scott said in a statement, explaining racing and funding arrangements are in place for the thoroughbred sector for the next three years and provides for a six-month

season of up to 55 race days. “With the funding arrangements stabilized, the committee will now turn our attention to the longerterm issues of attracting new bettors and growing the business.” The agreement sets out 34 approved race days at Fraser Downs between January and April in 2014, with another 37 race days scheduled in the fall, from September to December – for a total of 71 days. But the deal means the season at Fraser Downs will shrink from 71 to 62 days over seven months in 2015, and to just six months in 2016, something local horsemen have been lobbying against. “Of course we would like more race dates,” said Jackson Whittup, executive director of Harness Racing B.C., the association representing standardbred breeders, owners, trainers and drivers. “The major component of this for us is the five-year deal,” he said. “We’ve been told we have government backing for five years. We have race dates for five years. I think a lot of other jurisdictions would be jealous that we have it.”

The deal says income from a portion of slot machine profits at the casinos at Fraser Downs and at Hastings Racecourse will continue to be divided between the standardbred and thoroughbred sector. Reaction in the backstretch to the deal is mixed because it means a six-month racing schedule for

four years, says standardbred owner and trainer Sandra Roberts. “Some people believe we’ve just slit our own throats,” she said. “I look at it as an opportunity to grow.” Five years of guaranteed racing means breeders, for example, will have an incentive to breed foals, a lifeline for the industry.

For Whittup, it also means time for the association to pursue other racing options during the summer. “We’ve been given time to go out and execute some of those options for our members’ sake,” he said. “Could we possibly race two months during the summer at Kamloops or another venue? Obviously, there’s a cost.” Holding exhibition races at another track is another possibility, he added. Racing is underway at Fraser Downs to the end of April and resumes in September. It’s anticipated racing will begin at Hastings in late April or early May, continuing to November. The deal ends several months of tense negotiations. “Call it reluctant consensus,” said Chuck Keeling, executive director of stakeholder relations at Great Canadian Gaming, which operates both race tracks. “We wanted to see some certainty and some stability over a multiple number of years,” he said. “Over the last couple of years, it’s been done on a year-to-year basis.”

Walk marks kitchen’s grand opening

Sean Davie and Alex Suenaga of Original Joe’s in Cloverdale will be serving up Irish Stew for walk participants.

By Jennifer Lang It may be billed as the Coldest Night of the Year, but a delicious reward awaits participants in this Saturday evening’s walk to raise operating funds for the new Cloverdale Community Kitchen – a bowl of hearty Irish stew. Volunteers from Original Joe’s, a trendy eatery in the historic Cloverdale town centre, will be serving up bowls full of their St. Patrick’s Day delicacy: Guinness Irish Stew – enough for 300 hungry hikers and assorted volunteers. Earlier this week, 26 teams had already pledged upwards of $29,000 towards the new kitchen – well on the way to meeting a target of $30,000 for the Cloverdale walk. The Feb. 22 event, part of a nation-wide initiative focusing on homelessness and raising money to address their needs, in-

volves a two-, five- or 10-km walk on behalf of the new kitchen, hosted and built by Pacific Community Church. The event also marks the grand opening of the kitchen, a commercial-grade facility constructed this fall after the congregation raised $400,000 in cash and in-kind donations. Now complete, the kitchen is already serving up hot meals and nourishment for local individuals and families, but it’s not yet known what the operational costs will be, said Cloverdale walk director Jim Heuving. Currently, there’s a Monday Night Cafe run by volunteers from Pacific Community Church, and a hot lunch Thursdays offered by volunteers from the Korean Presbyterian church, but more community participation will be encouraged to help meet the need through new programs.

“The question will be how to we make the kitchen more accessible?” he said. Heuving expects at least 200 walkers, but they’re bracing for more, particularly as new registrations come in this week. It’s one of three walks taking place in Surrey – the other two are helping the Surrey Urban Mission and Sources Community Resources Society – but as of Tuesday, Cloverdale was sitting at 11th out of 63 communities in terms of pledges. “Cloverdale has really responded in a great way, they should be proud,” he said. Several local sponsors are helping out with the walk, including PriceSmart and Original Joe’s restaurant, which will be serving up stew. Sean Davie, general manager, said he jumped at the chance to get

More live music happenin’

An 11-year-old solo artist and two up-and-coming bands are the star attractions this Saturday evening at Happenin’ Heights IV – fourth in a series of live music events at a coffee house in Clayton Heights. Like the three previous live music evenings, the event will showcase local up-and-coming solo artists and bands in a relaxed setting where audiences can gather over food and refreshments. Madison Bell is young, but she’s been performing ing for the last two years at local talent contests, festivals and coffee shops. She also sang “on the big stage� at Surrey’s Canada Day event, says Happenin’ Heights organizer Greg Eymondson. She’s “only 11 years old yet sings like a seasoned rock star!� he says. Crossroads is a quartet of teens who play hard-

driving tunes by Led Zeppelin and The Who, while The Jon Harris Band is performing an acoustic set. The group is also pleased to announce a sponsorship agreement with Tom Lee Music (Langley). “With a bigger, more professional sound system and an everexpanding talent pool, this next event should be the best yet!� Eymondson says. The performances get underway at 7 p.m., Feb. 22 at Wired Monk Coventry, 103 18408 64 Avenue. You’re advised to get there early to ensure a good seat; the evenings are “growing exponentially� in popularity, through social media and by word-ofmouth, he adds.

Council decision in Clayton sends the wrong message Allowing re-zoning applications to go ahead outside of NCP process simply opens the door To the editor; Re: “Queue-jumping developers in Clayton rankle city councillor,” Feb. 13 Mayor Watts and Councillor Rasode are not alone in their concern over the decision made at the Feb. 3 council meeting to allow several developers’ applications for rezoning to move ahead in advance of the approval of an NCP for the area. It was noted in the corporate report that there were developments approved outside of the NCP already and in my view those approvals will be used as leverage

to get these ones approved. I would respectfully request that Council not go further down this road as it sends the wrong message to developers and I fear there will be no end to applications like this. I take exception to the statement attributed to a real estate agent speaking on behalf of one of the property owners involved where he claims that “there is very little single family lots available”. Most certainly this is not the case. Late last year I attended a presentation of three concept plans for development of an area in

To the editor

Clayton called Aloha Estates. All three plans included single family lots. My own NCP has seen approval of four developments over the past year totalling over 130 single family lots.  Given concerns raised by Engineering, Parks and Rec, Surrey School District and Planning in addition to the “challenges” already faced in Clayton – I am disappointed and ask that council revisit their decision and hold firm on development until an NCP has been approved.   Linda Stromberg Surrey

Harness racing ‘pushed to the tipping point’ These letters were submitted to the Cloverdale Reporter prior to the announcement on the new five-year agreement governing harness racing (see page 1).

Vital to economy To the editor; I run a stable of horses and would love to be able to stay in B.C. year round and contribute to the economy, buy meals in local restaurants and stores, buy feed from local suppliers, fuel from local companies, shop in local stores, etc. etc., but proposed changes to shorten our racing seasons... would make this impossible. Most of the industry would be forced to leave the province and take their economic benefits with them. The original spirit of the decision by Surrey council to allow

slot machines at Fraser Downs was in recognition of the importance of the horse industry to this area, and it seems that has been forgotten. We need protection from the government to ensure that our racing seasons are of sufficient duration to keep our industry healthy and keep our industry in the province of B.C., where it will do its benefits to the local economy. A year-round, healthy, racing industry is vital to this area, and needs to be protected. I want to stay here, I don’t want to pack up my business and leave. Darren Lupul Cloverdale

Livelihoods at stake We are hearing that the Casino is proposing to cut our race

days and without this the industry as a whole will be forced to lose their livelihood. It will have a lasting impact on the owners of standardbred horses, trainers, farmers, for hay production, to breeding and foaling our horses, grooms, stable hands, kitchen staff, table staff, security, vets and their staff, not to forget the negative impact on surrounding businesses. We need more dates to work with, not less. Without this our industry will die a slow death. People will abandon the industry or head to Alberta or further east to keep going. Pamela Plunkett

Ripple effect Not only is there the loss of

jobs at the track, there is also the loss of revenue for the businesses surrounding the track in Cloverdale. They have previously taken out ads in support of the longer race season and the heritage of our sport. And the ripple effect goes on to affect the tack shops, vets, feed stores farms and agriculture throughout the province. Not only does it affect Cloverdale but the breeding and turnout farms scattered throughout the province, and the vets and farriers and feed producers in those surrounding areas. It is pretty clear that there is no tomorrow for negotiating, the future is now, and it seems we are being pushed to the tipping point. Diana Ball Falkland, B.C.

CLOVERDALE CHAMBER

VOICE

OF COMMERCE

the voice of business in the community of Cloverdale

Getting results for B.C. business By the Cloverdale District Chamber of Commerce

This year, Chambers are celebrating the theme of “Leadership in Action” – a theme which highlights the leadership Chambers bring to their business communities, working hard to enhance B.C. as a business-friendly jurisdiction with strong opportunities for all British Columbians. And this leadership delivers results. Just this month, B.C.’s Chamber network, working in partnership with the B.C. government, was able to deliver a significant win for B.C.’s businesses: key, business-friendly changes to a recycling regulation that had caused concern in business communities across B.C. Thanks to the hard work of Chambers in B.C., working closely with a responsive government, more than 99 per cent of B.C.’s businesses will face no red tape or fees under this recycling regulation, which deals with packaging and printed paper. And that’s just one of many positive changes that the Chamber network has led for B.C. businesses. Among many

areas of impact, B.C.’s Chambers have been a key voice: • encouraging balanced budgets at all levels of government; • calling for solutions to B.C.’s skills gap; and • encouraging municipalities to actively support local economic development. As members of the BC Chamber of Commerce, Chambers throughout the province are part of B.C.’s most extensive business policy development process. This process brings B.C. businesses’ innovative ideas and on-the-ground insights to B.C.’s decision makers, and helps shape an ever more businessfriendly province. Chamber network policies span from fiscal and tax policy to infrastructure to industry-specific issues. At the local level, Chambers throughout B.C. are catalysts for change, bringing together business and community leaders to figure out how to take each community forward. So as B.C. celebrates Chamber Week, don’t miss the opportunity to swing by your local Cloverdale District Chamber of Commerce, join in on some Chamber Week events, and celebrate the leadership, energy and can-do attitude that B.C.’s Chambers bring to our communities.

Our government is helping keep our economy strong by working with industry to open new mines and benefit from our abundance of natural resources. LNG projects will be a major reason for the health of the province’s economy, said the chief economist of the business council, Ken Peacock, who helped write the 2014 report. Last week, the Speech from the Throne articulated our government’s vision. A plan, unwavering, to deliver on our plan to grow a strong economy, to secure tomorrow for British Columbia. The plan starts with controlling spending to balance the budget – as we did last year, and will again this year. We will leverage our province’s strengths to open new markets for our goods and attract investment - to create jobs here at home.

In Asia, China continues its “relatively robust expansion,” said the report from the council. The loonie is down against the U.S. dollar, which is actually a boon for B.C.’s tourism sector as well as those who earn a living exporting goods and services. The lower dollar is good news for retailers in SurreyCloverdale, as there’s less incentive for cross-border shopping.

Gross Domestic Product in B.C. is expected to grow by 2.3 per cent this year, the council said. That’s a big improvement over the estimated 1.3 per cent growth we had in 2013. The council also thinks 2015 will be even brighter, with real GDP rising by more than three per cent. The reasons given for this predicted growth include stronger economies in the U.S. and Europe.

Our government is helping keep our economy strong by working with industry to open new mines and benefit from our abundance of natural resources. LNG projects will be a major reason for the health of the province’s economy, said the chief economist of the business council, Ken Peacock, who helped write the 2014 report. Last week, the Speech from the Throne articulated our government’s vision. A plan, unwavering, to deliver on our plan to grow a strong economy, to secure tomorrow for British Columbia. The plan starts with controlling spending to balance the budget – as we did last year, and will again this year. We will leverage our province’s strengths to open new markets for our goods and attract investment - to create jobs here at home.

A PEEK AT THE YEAR AHEAD: OUR TOP TEN MORTGAGE TIPS FOR 2014!

YOUR HOME MAY BE THE BIGGEST INVESTMENT YOU’LL EVER MAKE. That means you want to be smart with your mortgage. Although we can’t say for sure what mortgage rates will do – or how the housing market will shift – we have compiled our top tips for the year ahead; sensible strategies for today’s homebuyers and owners. 1. Variables are back.  Several lenders are offering strong “prime minus” rates that could save you thousands in interest. And the Bank of Canada is still holding their key “overnight rate” very steady and very low… making variable-rate mortgages a sensible option right now. Fixed versus variable has always been a challenging mortgage decision. Let us help you decide which financing option best meets your needs. 2.  Don’t sleepwalk through your mortgage renewal. Don’t miss out on an opportunity to save thousands on your mortgage. When your lender sends you a letter saying it’s time to renew… then it’s time to get an expert second opinion. We’re independent and we have access to over 50 lenders. If there’s a better deal, we’ll find it. 3. Pay your phone bill on time! Paying your bills on time has always been the most important credit habit. Equifax recently started to include phone

companies on credit bureau reports – so your lender can see if you have any delinquencies with your phone bills. Look like a good borrower. 4. Keep other good credit habits. Don’t let your credit accounts exceed 30 per cent of your limit. Don’t cancel an old credit card without getting advice. And don’t sign up for store cards: they often have crazy interest rates, and the application triggers a credit inquiry (you don’t want a lot of those). 5.  Mortgage versus total debt. Do you have highinterest debt outside your mortgage that you won’t be able to pay off in the next few months? Then think about rolling that debt into a new low-rate mortgage.  This one, smart strategy could save you thousands… and boost your monthly cash flow. We can analyze your situation to see if you qualify. 6. What’s the prepayment penalty? Don’t let anyone tell you prepayment penalties are “all the same”. They’re not. If you ever need to get out of your mortgage early, the right mortgage could save you thousands. Not all lenders calculate penalties the same way, and the differences can be substantial. It helps to know which lenders have the most fair prepayment penalties. With access to dozens of lenders – we’ve got that information at our fingertips.

Small things can make a BIG difference. The money you spend on indulgences like a daily coffee shop latte could help fund more important things, such as your retirement. What’s more important to you? Kickstart your savings with our featured rates!

7. If one of you wants to keep the marital home. If you are going through a separation or divorce and one of you wants to keep the marital home, we’ve got some great mortgage options, including a mortgage to 95 per cent. Your home can be the asset that gives you both a fresh start! 8. A paydown will pay it forward. Take every opportunity to beat down your mortgage principal using any prepayment privileges! Use tax refunds, bonuses, whatever. Or switch to weekly or bi-weekly payments. Every dollar you pay down on principal means every

future payment goes further. 9. Thinking renovation? We see what you see. Your reno will add value to your home. That’s why we have a special “Refinance Plus Improvements” mortgage that lets you refinance up to 80 per cent of the new, post-reno value of your home. 10. Come in for a checkup. Your mortgage needs an annual checkup. Really. Life doesn’t stand still, which means your needs may have changed. Even a minor tweak can pay big dividends. Give us a call at 604.576.1412 – you’ll be glad you did!

For the third year in a row, Leak, 20, has won the non-wagering, all-female driver race, this time driving KG Mattattack to a close finish at 2:05. The Feb. 9 charity harness race – held directly after the eighth race at Fraser Downs Racetrack – featured six drivers and horses.

Kim Schneider and Happy Again Mindale were second, while Alina McLeod and Red Star Brooklyn placed a close third.
