Senior beaten and robbed in Newton 72-year-old man attacked in park during the day by Kevin Diakiw A SOUTH ASIAN senior was taken to hospital after a brazen midday beating to his face and hands in Newton last week. It’s an assault that bears an eerie similarity to a previous attack on a hockey mom a short distance away. Surrey Mounties are asking for public assistance after a 72-yearold man was beaten and robbed at 1 p.m. on Thursday at Newton Athletic Park. Police responded to the call for assistance in the 7300-block of 128 Street to find the elderly man suffering from injuries to his face and hands. See POLICE / Page 4

A kitchen crammed with pot plants and grow lights (left) and a bathroom filled with wires and power outlets are just a couple of examples of how residential homes in Surrey are being used to grow medical marijuana.
City cracks down on pot homes Remediation work must be done on former medical marijuana grow-ops by Kevin Diakiw MEDICAL POT grow-ops in residential LEADER FILE PHOTO

homes have to be shut down as of next week (April 1), and the City of Surrey will be following up to make sure the houses are safe. People ignoring the city’s requests for remediation work may face thousands of dollars in inspection costs.
The clean-up initiative comes as Health Canada ends the ability for people licensed to use medicinal marijuana to grow it at home (see story, page 3). Medical pot now must now be purchased from regulated commercial producers. In Surrey, about 1,000 homes have been used to grow pot for medicinal purposes, according to Surrey Deputy Chief

Dan Barnscher. He told the Surrey Police Committee Monday that the city knows the locations of 309 of the homes. Some of the risks associated with decommissioned marijuana grow operations include chemical residue, mold in the walls and unsafe wiring. See UNPAID FEES / Page 3

From page 1 Barnscher says notices will be going out to homeowners on April 1, and they will be expected to begin remediation work within 30 days. If they don’t, Surrey will send out inspectors and charge the homeowner $5,200. Every month after that, bylaw officers will show up, which will cost the homeowner between $800 and $900 per visit. Barnscher said the fees are to recover the cost of staff time. Refusal to pay will result in the fees being added to property taxes.

$50,000 for children of killer Pickton’s victims Missing Women Inquiry made recommendation for compensation by Jeff Nagel CHILDREN OF the victims of serial killer Robert
Pickton will each be paid $50,000 as compensation for policing failures that allowed the Port Coquitlam pig farmer to prey on vulnerable women for years. The $4.9-million deal between the provincial and federal governments and City of Vancouver provides the payments to 98 children of 67 missing or murdered women tied to Pickton
and addresses a key recommendation of the Missing Women Inquiry led by Wally Oppal. Justice Minister Suzanne Anton said the money offers a chance for victims’ families to improve their education, housing or other circumstances. She acknowledged no amount can fully repay families for the loss of their loved ones. “It’s a fair amount, it’s the right thing to do,” Anton said. “But we can’t compensate for the loss of a mother.” The agreement is expected to settle a civil lawsuit brought by 13 families of victims. Pickton was convicted in 2007 on six counts of second-degree murder and is serving a life sentence with no chance of parole for 25 years. He was arrested in 2002, but Oppal found better policing should have caught him years
earlier, preventing the disappearances of many Downtown Eastside sex trade workers whose DNA was later found on the Pickton farm. Oppal cited the “intergenerational impact” of Pickton’s crimes and the need to break the hold of violence on families in recommending the compensation fund for children. Anton said the province has fulfilled or is making substantial progress on three-quarters of the inquiry’s recommendations. RCMP Dep. Comm. Craig Callens said another inquiry recommendation on improved police information sharing and analysis for serious crimes will be addressed when a new 24-hour real-time intelligence centre opens in May at the RCMP’s E Division headquarters in Surrey. firstname.lastname@example.org

The attack occurred just over three kilometers from where hockey mom Julie Paskall was fatally beaten in December outside Newton Arena, near 72 Avenue and 136B Street. The troubled area near where Paskall was attacked is referred to by locals as “Somali Pirate Park” because of a large number of drug dealers in the area.

Surrey man gets life in jail QUICK TAX REFUND for mercy killing murder $ E-FILE
No parole for Thomas Robert Elton for 25 years
by Sheila Reynolds
A SURREY MAN found guilty in 2012 of killing his ailing wife has been handed a life sentence with no parole eligibility for 25 years. Thomas Robert Elton was found guilty of the second-degree murder of Brenda Turcan (also known as Brenda Blondell), but his sentencing was delayed until this week as his defence lawyer argued a life sentence was unconstitutional because of the nature of the killing. Elton said he did not murder his wife, but helped her commit suicide. The couple married in March 2005, about 10 years after they met, and lived in an apartment in Surrey. Turcanâ€™s body was found in the coupleâ€™s suite in a building near 104 Avenue and 148 Street in June 2009. During trial, Turcanâ€™s doctor testified that she was suffering from a variety of progressive illnesses, but that all her medical problems were treatable and manageable. Elton testified that he and Turcan had an

agreement that if either of them wanted to die, the other would also commit suicide. On the day Turcanâ€™s death, Elton said he awoke at about 8 a.m. His wife was already up, sitting on a couch. â€œWell, itâ€™s time, itâ€™s over,â€? Elton recalled Turcan telling him. â€œIâ€™ve had enough.â€? â€œWhat?â€? Elton said. â€œItâ€™s time, right?â€? he said Turcan replied. Elton said those were the code words the pair agreed to use to indicate it was time for suicide. He took their dog outside and came inside
15 minutes later to find Turcan unresponsive. He found a bottle of valium in her hand and thought his wife had begun the suicide process without him. He said he then fed eight valium pills to his dog and took 23 pills himself. He wanted to make sure Turcan was dead, and that she would not come to just to find him and the dog dead, so he strangled her and then stabbed her in the chest with a bayonet. He then took an amount of methadone he thought would be

From page 3 â€œIt puts patients in a difficult position where they have to lie to the government on an official form or defy the government and not send the form in.â€? He said itâ€™s unreasonable to force approved users to throw away â€œperfectly good medicineâ€? under threat of prosecution and then buy more from new corporate dealers. â€œItâ€™s putting a lot of fear into patients,â€? Larsen said. â€œIf they donâ€™t send this notice back or if it gets lost in the mail when they send it back, Health Canada is going to send cops to their door.â€? Larsen said a national protest is planned for April 1, when cannabis reform supporters will bombard Health Minister Rona Ambroseâ€™s office with phone calls and emails.
enough to kill himself. It wasnâ€™t, and he was arrested at the scene. At Eltonâ€™s sentencing Wednesday in New Westminster Supreme Court, Justice John Truscott found that Elton had committed a â€œmercy killing.â€? â€œThis was not an offence committed out of anger or hate for Ms. Turcan,â€? Truscott found. â€œThey loved and cared for each other. â€œNevertheless, his actions constituted the murder of Ms. Turcan and I find Mr. Elton guilty of second-degree murder,â€? Truscott said.

Confessions of a bad butterfly
ack in the day (not really all that long ago) I used to be quite the social butterfly. My little wings were always a flutter from one party or gathering to the next – time, bills and babysitters were not an issue. However, those days are now long gone –as are many of the friendships formed during that fun and “carefree” chapter of my life. While some have stuck around, the visits and phone calls have dwindled. I take 100 per cent of the blame. It was around six years ago – newly pregnant with my oldest daughter, Molly – that I traded in my delicate wings for some dependable stretchy pants. Sometime during this swap, I also became... dare I say it... a pretty bad friend. (Gasp). I became notorious for breaking plans at the last minute, ignoring incoming calls and zoning-out mid-conversation during a pal’s crisis. Exhausted, bloated and highly hormonal – or irrational, as my husband would tell you (in my defence I really needed a tomato, even if the roads were blanketed in snow), I began optioning for quiet evenings at home with a bag of chips, slippers and my trusty PVR’d recordings. After 6 p.m., the idea of wearing anything other than pajamas and a Scrunchy – yes, I actually still own one – just seemed like way too much Kristyl effort. “Don’t worry, I’ll have more energy and we’ll do things after the baby is born,” I told them all. Boy oh boy, was I wrong. Fast forward to half a decade later – Molly is almost five and Zoe is three-and-a-half – my illfitting wings are still collecting dust in the closet, my stretchy-pant collection has grown and I’m still bloated, hormonal and irrational at the best of times, even without a human life growing inside me. While I used to love chatting on the phone, it’s not nearly as fun with a preschooler screaming “Let me talk. Let me talk!” in the background, or having to put someone on hold mid-sentence so you can wipe a bum or bandage a bloody knee.
Dealing with dumpers
EDITOR Paula Carlson
QUESTION OF THE WEEK
For the sake of salvaging my remaining friendships and my own sanity, I do attempt to squeeze into those wings from time to time. I’m pretty lucky in that I get to go out more than most moms thanks to this blogging gig and a very understanding husband. The difference is that now there’s a dark cloud that hangs overhead – a reminder of the early morning and the inevitable “I wants,” the “she hit me’s,” and the I’m bored’s” that certainly won’t take a break just because mommy is tired or suffering from “wine flu.” I’m not saying I’ve become a hermit. Actually, I’m more social than ever before. My children and I have long conversations about the meaning of life – mostly involving the characters in the film Frozen – and there are plenty of play dates on our calendar. Heck, I even still like to mingle... from the comfort of my couch, behind the safety of a screen. Coffee dates have been replaced with Facebook chats. And Twitter has become a great place to rub elbows and network without having to put on lipstick or pants. I’m great at making an effort online, even if it’s just a comment on a status, a like or a retweet. However, I know that any digital connection runs a high risk of being disconnected. I’m sure I’ve been unfollowed, unliked and forgotten in cyberspace by many fedup friends. I don’t hold it against them. Still, a good handful of pals stand by, Clark accepting our brief interaction as sporadic as it is, not taking my “indifference” personally – or so I hope. I take comfort in knowing that the old adage “at every age, there is a stage” isn’t just meant for kids, it’s for us parents, too. It may not be tomorrow or even next year, but one day when I’m not cocooning on the couch, covered in Spaghettios and a cuddly preschooler or two, I’ll be a good friend again. Maybe even a butterfly. Until then, just know you’re in my thoughts and my news feed. Kristyl Clark is a stay-at-home-mom and founder of the family blogazine, She’s a Valley Mom (www.shes avalleymom.com).

Teachers: the writing is on the blackboard THE B.C. Teachers’ Federation
says there are over 41,000 school teachers in the federation. Strike vote results from March 6 show that only 29,301 teachers voted, with 26,051 voting yes for strike action. This leaves 14,949 teachers, or 36.46 per cent, that seem to be happy with the way things are. The way things are is that the average teacher wage
in B.C. is $89,000 per year ($70,624 in wages, $18,000 in benefits), two weeks off at Christmas, a two-week spring break, lieu days, a pension plan that the B.C. taxpayers pay 16.13 per cent of salary into, having the months of July and August off, and a taxpayerfunded benefits plan.

On Jan. 27, 2014 I wrote to our MP, Nina Grewal of Fleetwood Port Kells. In the email I indicated how outraged I was about the number of times our community mailbox had been broken into since the fall (three times). I also indicated that as her constituent, homeowner and home-based small business owner, the impact of these break-ins go far beyond being a minor inconvenience. I asked Grewal to respond within seven business days addressing the following: 1. What has your role been in addressing this serious problem in you riding? Please cite specific examples. 2. What solution(s) do you have for small homebased business owners who depend upon reliable
mail service in your riding? 3. What plans have you formulated and presented to Parliament regarding compensation for small business owners to help offset the costs of picking up our mail at a site that is a significant distance from our home-based business? To date, I have not had the courtesy of a response from Grewal. Am I the only one who wonders what exactly Grewal is doing for the residents in her riding? Is the community mailbox issue the only issue she has chosen to ignore or is she unresponsive to other issues in Fleetwood-Port Kells? I for one, will remember her apparent lack of concern for her constituents during the next election. Sue Sanderson

Youth urged to develop ideas Surreyâ€™s â€˜Teen Hackathonâ€™ aims to get teens involved in programming by Warren JanĂŠ SIXTEEN-YEAR-OLD
Vancouver student Aanikh Kler has been speaking to other kids about pursuing and developing their ideas in the wake of his Dragonâ€™s Den appearance, where he scored a deal with Arlene Dickinson on his ringtone app, UndrTheRadr. On Tuesday afternoon, he spoke to about 25 teens at the City of Surreyâ€™s first Teen Hackathon at City Centre Library, where students brought their laptops, tablets and smartphones to try and use open data available online to design a useful app for the city. â€œPart of my [public] speaking is I get to see all the amazing things cities and schools are now doing to help foster innovation and ideas,â€? said Kler. â€œI think an event like this where you have people that know so much about apps and creating them can help piece the idea and the technical aspect
â€œIf youâ€™re passionate, people will realize that and... try to help you.â€? Aanikh Kler

together, which will actually help in creating apps going forward.â€? Also at the event were representatives from Microsoft and Mozilla, the company that created the Firefox browser, as well as Surreyâ€™s geographic information systems manager, Sean Simpson, who said that the aim of the hackathon was for youth to start thinking about ways they can develop technology to help others. â€œWe want to get them involved in social issues and civic issues and try to make them civicminded. We also know that teenagers never leave a smart phone; itâ€™s always in their hand,â€? said Simpson. â€œWe want to try to connect them with issues that are civic issues, with technology. So today weâ€™re trying to connect the dots for them.â€? Lectures included an explanation of what open data is (unrestricted information) and how it can be utilized in the creation

of apps, as well as other programs which can be used to design visually appealing apps and combine data sets to create original apps. Some of the ideas floating around the room included an app that maps the locations of alternative fuel stations, a pay parking locator and a program that combines city points of information with climate data. Holy Cross High School student Savio Neyyan said he was really enjoying his first hackathon experience. â€œThe guy who made that app was really inspiring,â€? said Neyyan. â€œThis whole program really seems informative for me. Iâ€™m learning a lot about apps and open data; itâ€™s pretty fun.â€? Before creating UndrTheRadr, which emits a ringtone that only young people can hear, Kler said he had no app-designing experience and doesnâ€™t want that to stand in anyone elseâ€™s way either. â€œIf youâ€™re passionate, people will realize that and theyâ€™ll try to help you,â€? said Kler. â€œMy advice for other teenagers would be that if youâ€™re passionate and you believe in it, other people are going to believe in it, so really believe in yourself and do the best you can and things will go well for you.â€? Simpson urged anyone like Kler who has an idea to approach the city with it. â€œWe want to work with you and weâ€™re going to provide tools and lessons on how you might proceed in doing that,â€? said Simpson. â€œSo we welcome any insight or any thoughts or ideas and weâ€™ll help you develop those ideas.â€?

trained);a “community prevention” officer; or a regular RCMP constable. Fordy told the city’s police committee Monday the nine CSOs with the city have until the end of the month to decide what they want to do. Some will opt for more training to become community constables or full police officers. Fordy is also looking into the creation of civilian safety officers, who would be direct hires of the city, but would work under the direction of the RCMP. Fordy is ironing out details such as what roles they would undertake and what uniforms they would wear.
SURREY’S TOP cop is working to put
together another option to replace Community Safety Officers (CSOs), which will be disbanded next year. A four-year-old policing program – a key in the city’s Crime Reduction Strategy – is coming to an end next year, leaving the city looking for costeffective ways to get more law enforcement boots on the ground. Surrey RCMP Officer in Charge Bill Fordy said this month there were a few options to replace the CSOs, including a “community constable” (a CSO which is armed, and presumably better

Horgan jumped into the NDP leadership race Monday, joining Port Coquitlam MLA Mike Farnworth. The Juan de Fuca MLA finished third behind outgoing leader Adrian Dix and Farnworth in the party’s 2011 leadership race. But this time he has the endorsement of former B.C. NDP leader Carole James, who had not previously taken sides since her resignation after a caucus revolt. “He gets it,” James said, calling Horgan “a straight shooter and a team builder.” Horgan said he believes in community, public services and ensuring access for all to B.C.’s prosperity.

John Horgan “I believe I can take those values and encourage people to not just vote for the NDP, but to be excited about voting for the NDP,” Horgan told Black Press.

are urging Port Metro Vancouver to work with medical health officers in reassessing human health risks from increased coal shipments to feed a proposed new terminal at Fraser Surrey Docks. Surrey-White Rock’s Gordon Hogg, SurreyPanorama’s Marvin Hunt and Delta North’s Scott Hamilton signed a Feb. 25 letter urging the port to ensure a new coal impact review announced last month is transparent to the “growing number of municipalities and citizens who have expressed reasonable unanswered questions.” Port authority CEO Robin Silvester last month ordered the review to plug deficiencies in an earlier environmental health assessment but said further findings on health risks won’t be referred back to medical health officers for comment

A MEASLES outbreak
centred on Chilliwack has also resulted in exposure to thousands of students and staff at BCIT in Burnaby, where one student fell ill. The student, who is linked to the disease outbreak in Chilliwack, was at BCIT to take exams March 6 and 7. Those exposed were advised to stay isolated at home until March 29 if they don’t have documented immunizations, were born before 1970 or didn’t previously have the measles. Fraser Health officials said they expect higher immunization rates of around 85 per cent among BCIT students – compared to 60 to 70 per cent in some parts of the Fraser Valley – means a low risk of spread at the campus.

ahead of a final decision on the new $15-million coal terminal, which would bring more coal trains through White Rock, Surrey and Delta. “I am concerned, that without a transparent process involving the medical health officers, that many questions and concerns will go unanswered or not be accepted by a majority of the residents,” the MLAs’ letter states.

ried about their security can now send text messages to alert Transit Police. Dispatchers now receive and respond to texts sent to them at 87-77-77. The move, which took effect in December, is in addition to other methods of alerting security, such as pressing the yellow strip above windows on SkyTrain to trigger a silent alarm. “It’s a more discreet way to get help because people are texting all the time,” said Transit Police spokesperson Anne Drennan. She said police have already received many “excellent texts” with good tips, particularly ones related to sexual offences. Transit riders welcomed the change on Twitter, saying they’ve often wished they could text to seek police help.

nine-per-cent growth in overall cargo moved in 2013, with increases in coal, grain and container shipments leading the way. Coal shipments – which have been controversial – climbed 17 per cent to 38.2 million tonnes, split between about 26 million tonnes of steelmaking coal and 12 million tonnes of thermal coal. The port’s coal shipping capacity is expected to climb with a pending expansion in North Vancouver and, potentially a new terminal at Fraser Surrey Docks that has hit strong opposition. Coal now makes up 35 per cent of port exports. Container shipments were up four per cent in 2013 to 2.83 million containers. Port Metro CEO Robin Silvester said that gain stems from more containerized grain exports and increased imports of consumer products to Canada to meet rising consumer demand. It’s close to the port’s long-term expectation of five-per-cent-a-year overall container growth that Silvester said is the basis for the proposed Ter-
minal 2 expansion at Deltaport. “The growth we’ve been expecting is coming to pass and underlining the importance of the infrastructure strategy we’ve been working on with our federal and provincial partners,” Silvester said. One of the most visible infrastructure upgrades – the Roberts Bank Rail Corridor work to build eight railway overpasses in Delta, Surrey and Langley – should be finished within a year, he said. The overpasses will reduce road congestion from trains blocking level crossings that would otherwise worsen as port traffic grows. They’ll also reduce or eliminate train whistling. Silvester said the port projects a doubling of container shipments over the next 15 years or so and up to 30 per cent growth in grain handling. He said last year’s growth of 11 million tonnes of cargo – to a record 135 million tonnes overall – was the equivalent of adding an entire medium-sized port in Metro Vancouver. He said the port supports 60,000 jobs in the Lower Mainland that earn 50 per cent more than the average wage.

Clay Construction was recently named Custom Home Builder of the Year at the Georgie Awards, which recognize the best in B.C.’s residential construction industry.
Clay Construction named Best Custom Home Builder in B.C.
By Kerry Vital
Clay Construction was recently announced the winner of the Grand Georgie Award for Custom Home Builder of the Year, recognizing their exceptional home-building and commitment to their business. The
awards are handed out by the Canadian Home Builders’ Association of B.C., and honour the best in B.C.’s residential construction industry. “We are highly honoured to win this prestigious award,” says owner Larry Clay. “We’re proud to be a Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association member, and we believe that our client-centred approach allows us to focus on what is important to our customers.” In a competitive and sophisticated marketplace, Clay Construction looks for ways to distinguish themselves. Their clients are successful business owners and leaders in their respective fields who demand the best. The Clay Construction team’s goal is to successfully fulfill their clients’ expectations,
which involve clear communication, agreed-upon expectations, and consistent weekly reports. “Knowing where the project is financially at all times is crucial.” says Clay. “Clay Construction is founded on the principles of integrity, professionalism, quality, and transparency.” As part of their commitment to customer service, Clay and his team implement building practices that few custom home builders emulate. A detailed catalogue of pictures, moisture checks of the framing, and a detailed warranty binder are just three of the thirty items noted on their website where Clay Construction is unrivaled. They’re proud to share important practices on building a better home that will out-perform others.
“Every build has its own unique challenges,” says Clay. Their projects have included: large luxury estate homes on acreages, house and laneways built concurrently in re-emerging Vancouver neighbourhoods, a wheelchairaccessible R2000 house, and a split-lot project resulting in a couple of narrow homes with astonishing spaciousness. Furthermore, they have completed a wide spectrum of architecturally diverse homes from modern to Craftsman. Give them a set of plans and they will bring the home to life. Additionally, they will provide a detailed budget, scope and specifications before they move one stone. They believe that quality and peace of mind is something you should be able to depend on! Clients are guaranteed a homebuilding experience that is collaborative and enjoyable; something that Clay prides himself on. “I love what I do, and I love knowing my company is an award-winning leader in the industry,” he says. For more information, visit their website at www.clayconstruction.ca.

Ford has been on a roll here in Canada; finishing out 2013 as the top selling brand for the fourth consecutive year. There are some very big products coming from Ford over the coming year that will make a big impact on its sales and image, and you will get a peek at some of them at the Vancouver International Auto Show. The first is the biggest introduction of any automaker this year, the allnew 2015 Ford F-150 fullsize pickup truck. The F-150 isn’t just the best selling truck in Canada for almost 50 years; it is the overall sales champ, selling more than any other nameplate. Period. Ford isn’t merely introducing an updated model. No, they went to town, developing a entirely new manufacturing process that will revolutionize the full-size truck space. The body of the next F-150 is built of an aluminum alloy material that Ford claims is 318kg lighter but stronger than the outgoing model. In addition, the frame is made of thinner, lighter and stronger hightensile steel that combined with the body, produces the weight savings. This is an industry first, and a revolutionary approach to building trucks. In addition to a lighter body, the engineers have developed two new engines to compliment the existing
3.5L EcoBoost turbocharged V6 model and 5.0L normally aspirated V8 engine. The first is a new 3.5L V6 engine, replacing the outgoing 3.7L model base engine. With a lighter truck, a smaller engine can do the work. A smaller 2.7L turbocharged EcoBoost V6 is also going to be introduced with an auto start-stop function that switches off the engine when the truck is sitting still. Official fuel economy ratings have not been released but Ford executives tell me they hope to have best in class gasoline fuel economy. Other enhancements to the F-150 include a new stepladder that integrates into the tailgate. Ford was the first to have this feature but it has been improved for 2015. The rear tailgate also has a soft-open feature that prevents the tailgate from slamming down, plus a light switch near the back of the truck to eliminate the bed with new LED lights. The second vehicle that will have a big impact of Ford, but more of an image car, is the all-new 2015 Mustang. Interestingly, about 25 percent of all Mustangs are sold here in British Columbia, so this is a big deal for us. The 2015 Mustang is now going to be sold around the world and developed as part of the “One Ford” approach to making cars they can share in every market. This means the Mustang will be sold, for the first time, with right hand drive for countries like the UK, Australia and Japan. The stance of the new Mustang is lower, wider and more muscular, with the wheels pushed out to provide better stability. The fastback has a steeper rake and a bigger trapezoidal grille has enhanced the continued from page 23

shark nose design. Initially the Mustang will be sold as a coupe and convertible with the base and GT trim, the higher performance models will come later. Inside is another cleansheet design, featuring real aluminum switches and dials, with two large gauges behind the steering wheel. The interior looks more upscale than any Mustang before. Under the hood the GT trim continues with the 5.0L V8 with improved valves and cylinders helping to pump out over 420hp. The base 3.7L V6 is also carried over but now with 300hp. The big news is the introduction of a 2.3L turbocharged EcoBoost 4-cylinder with an estimated 300hp and 300 lb.-ft. of torque. For years, the criticism has been the lack of independent rear suspension in the Mustang but this is no longer the case. A fully independent rear suspension will help get all the power down to the ground from all three engines plus provide improved handling. Ford is hoping with this new platform and available engines, this new model will provide as many thrills as any German sports model and for less money. Pricing has not been finalized but expect it to be in line with existing 2014 Mustang pricing. Ford is doing well here in Canada and with all-new products; it will have a good chance of staying number one. zack.spencer@ drivewaybc.ca

2015 Chevrolet Malibu
2015 Chevrolet Camaro
2015 Chevrolet Impala
By Alexandra Straub While the diesel model was launched last summer, it bears a 2014 designation. Under its hood is a 2.0L turbo-diesel that packs in 151 horsepower and 264 lb.-ft torque. Yes, it has that much torque and is most impressive. According to the Chevrolet, it has a 0-96 km/h (60 mph) performance of 8.6 seconds, “which is better than the Volkswagen Jetta TDI automatic and competitive with German diesel cars that dominate the North American market.” In addition to that, it receives an estimated fuel consumption of 4.2L/100km on the highway and 7.5L/100km in the city. While the Cruze diesel had already been available in Europe, the proven engine needed to be adapted to North American emissions ratings. It comes standard with a six-speed automatic transmission and 376.6L trunk space. It has an MSRP of $24,945
plus $1,550 destination freight charge. Impala Chevrolet’s flagship sedan is all new for the 2014 model year. Released in 2013, this five-passenger vehicle can certainly hold its own in a segment whose competitors are getting stronger and stronger. Among its redeeming new features, an all-new exterior design. I think it looks great. Having had the opportunity to take it for a test drive, Chevrolet has certainly listened to their customers and in the Impala; it has given drivers a vehicle that has flair, as well as potency. Its cabin/interior also received a major overhaul and the result is pleasing to the eyes and to the touch. The 2014 Impala is offered with three engine choices, including two four-cylinder powertrains and a 3.6L V6. Output for the 3.6L V6 is rated at 305 horsepower and 264 lb.-ft. of torque (358 Nm). That is the highest horsepower output

My next vehicle came from a used car wholesaler*. There was nothing wrong with it, but he couldn’t find a dealer who wanted it. I gladly took it off his hands. How hip was I? I had a new source of newer vehicles that would come right to me. “Two-year-old car for sale. No previous accident history reported, only 35,000km on it. Call with offer.” Shortly after, I got a call from a young man. His car had just broken down, and he needed a new one fast. He agreed to meet me at the local construction site where he worked. He was just finishing up his lunch when I arrived. He was wearing his construction uniform and I immediately noticed his tired eyes. I felt bad for the poor fellow, and I was glad that I was selling him a reliable vehicle. He didn’t need another headache on top of everything. I even knocked $500 off the price I wanted. It was a smooth edd happy h and transaction. The guyy looke looked ely forr all the help. I thanked me immensely beamed back at him. Around 5:00 a.m. the next morning, I got a ructioon worker, yelling so call. It was the construction ely understand u loudly that I could barely him. ” he said over and over “THEY TOOK IT AWAY,” !” again. “REPOSSESSED!” I hung up on him and triedd to make sense of ld th he car be taken the situation. Why would the he night? n Who’s away in the middle of the “they”? ad a lien on it. Liens. Of course. The car ha had ell on a lot. The bank That’s why it wouldn’t sell must have seized it due to an unpaid balance. idnn’t want to get As before, I panicked. I didn’t w. SSure, I sold him the involved in this right now. seed to know it had car, but how was I supposed
a lien on it? I realized the wholesaler* had scammed me! If that fellow had asked for a CarProof history report or even a provincial lien search, I’d be the one screaming. Over the next several hours, I kept letting my phone go to voicemail – I couldn’t bear speaking to the young man. I knew I had to switch phones again. I felt a bit ashamed. But I needed to be selfish about this. At this point, the best thing for me was cash. And lots of it. *Wholesaler – Vehicle sellers may call themselves auto brokers or wholesalers to sound legitimate and cheaper. But if they’re selling to private buyers, they must be licensed as a dealer. Like any curber - an individual posing as a private seller but selling vehicles as a business – wholesalers and brokers offer none of the protection the law provides for purchases from a Vehicle Sales Authority licensed dealer. Walt learned that lesson, sson, but his buyer paid the price.
“They took it away,” he said over and over gain. “REPOSSESSED!” again.

in the segment from a naturally-aspirated V6 engine. The Ecotec 2.5L is part of a new family of four-cylinder engines developed with increased efficiency and greater refinement. It is rated at 196 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque The Impala’s Ecotec 2.4L engine with eAssist provides electrical assist in certain conditions to help save fuel. It is rated at 182 horsepower. Malibu The 2013 model year brought forth an all-new Malibu. That said, not much has changed for 2014, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t get a few enhancements. For example, there’s now a fuel-saving start-stop technology added to the standard model, rear knee room improved by 1.25 inches (31.7 mm) and chassis and suspension developments enhance drive experience. That’s on top off the overhauled Malibu, on the inside and out.
Camaro Z/28 For those diehard track day fans who have been waiting for an even more performance inspired Camaro, the wait is over. Almost. For 2014, the Z/28 makes its debut. All 2014 Camaro models feature a revised exterior design that integrates highperformance aerodynamics for more efficient cooling and stability at high speeds. However, the new Camaro Z/28 adds features like a full aerodynamics package that creates downforce at speed, which helps make it the most track-capable offering in Camaro’s history. Alongside its aerodynamic prowess, under its hood is a mechanical wonder. Its 7.0L, LS7 V8 handassembled engine was co-developed with Corvette Racing to make it as potent as possible. Its monster engine produces an estimated 500 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. With those figures on paper, don’t expect amazing fuel results! And just like it takes an experienced driver to put it through its paces, your bank account will most likely need to be seasoned, too! It has an MSRP of $77,400. If you get to the show, all the GM brands, including Chevrolet, are wellrepresented. alexandra.straub@ drivewaybc.ca

A vandalized horse with a
tale to tell
South Surrey artist draws out the real story of ‘Tattoo’ for a new book by Brenda Anderson
hat began last summer as a disturbing and senseless act of destruction is looking more and more like a tale with a happy ending. The beheading and dismemberment of a fibreglass horse sculpture last July outraged many in the community, when someone took a saw to the work of public art shortly after it was placed in a Brookswood park in Langley. The $10,000 sculpture – part of the Horsing Around Langley initiative – had been painted in swirls of silver, blue, black and green and dubbed “Tattoo.” But no sooner had Tattoo been fixed in place at the park at 200 Street and 40 Avenue than someone destroyed the fiberglass sculpture, cutting it off at the hooves and removing its head. The artist, South Surrey’s Marilyn Dyer, said at the time that her disappointment was for the community at large, and not for herself, because she had taken great joy in the creative process, but park users – children in particular – had been cheated out of their enjoyment of the public artwork. After being told about the damage, Dyer, 81, and her grandchildren visited the park and searched the area for anything that had been missed when the larger pieces were collected and taken to a specialist at an autobody shop. Marilyn Dyer fibreglass “We put it all back together,” said Dyer. With its legs bound and head reattached, the life-sized sculpture is back in its place in the park – albeit a little worse for wear. “It’s got its scars and bumps,” said the artist. “But that’s Tattoo’s journey. That’s his chapter in life – like all of us. “It’s a really wonderful thing to be part of.” Now the sculpture’s story is the subject of a children’s book. Titled Tattoo, the Painted Horse, the volume, aimed at children aged five to 11, is expected to be released during Brookswood Days in June. It was written by a Summerland author named Ruthie Charles, and looks at the incident from the sculpture’s viewpoint, explained Dyer. “It tells his story – he is resurrected at the end.” Charles was in Langley visiting family when she heard about the act of vandalism, explained Dyer. The story touched her and she decided it needed to be committed to print. Dyer, meanwhile, is working on the drawings that will accompany the text. Among the vibrant images, which are drawn in coloured pencil, is one that depicts the sculpture with a garland of flowers around its neck and surrounded by playful children — as the artist intended Tattoo to be. Because there is an educational component to the story, Dyer would like
“It’s got its scars and bumps. But that’s Tattoo’s Journey.”
BOAZ JOSEPH / THE LEADER
South Surrey artist Marilyn Dyer works on an illustration for a children’s book Tattoo, the Painted Horse. Written by Summerland author Ruthie Charles, the book tells the story of how a fibreglass horse sculpture designed by Dyer was vandalized shortly after it was installed in a Brookswood Park. The sculpture has since been repaired and is once again on display, still bearing the scars of its ordeal. to see the book stocked in schools and libraries. “It think we have a good opportunity here. I’m willing to do my bit, and Ruthie has too.” At the time the horse was destroyed, Dyer wondered publicly about the reason anyone would want to commit such a random act of destruction. “It seems that there are people who just can’t accept that there is something nice in their community.” In many ways, the horse sculpture’s destruction parallels the experience of being bullied, said the artist. “It was screwed down, it was mute and vulnerable. “For me, it’s a lesson for life – we have to watch out for the vulnerable. Bullies come in the night, and the horse couldn’t run.” Bullies aren’t going to target victims who can fight back, she pointed out. Coincidentally, Dyer spoke to the Brookswood Merchants Association about the restoration on Feb. 26 – Pink Shirt Day – which aims to put an end to bullying. Ella Little – owner of Ella’s, a clothing bou-
tique which is located across 200 Street from the park – said she reacted with disbelief when she heard about the vandalism. But she never had a moment’s doubt that the sculpture would be repaired and returned to the park, she added. “I have great faith in the community that it’s not going to happen again,” she said. “I think it was an isolated incident – not typical of people.” Alongside Brookswood Homes and the Brookswood Merchants Association, Ella’s boutique was a major sponsor of the sculpture. “Public art is important and it gets shoved aside when budgets are short, but it brings smiles to our faces,” said Little. And while Tattoo is a beautiful piece art, Little added, thanks to the upcoming book, its impact promises goes beyond making park users happy. “It is about how the horse feels neglected and abandoned. It’s a great anti-bullying message.” “(Tattoo’s story) is not finished,” she said. “It’s got a message that it’s going to carry.”

ing are not conducive to us running as a movie theatre.” For their many loyal patrons and for movie fans who cling to the celluloid age, it’s devastating news. An Art Deco-style gem on Main Street Cloverdale, the Clova theatre opened in 1947, and, apart from a decade-plus where the silver screen was silent until a re-boot as the Clova Cinema in 1992, has been thrilling successive generations of movie fans. Burghardt, a Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary grad, has been operating the Clova along with a tightly-knit crew known as the Clovamily since 1996. “It has been a wonderful and joyous 17-plus years, with many memories, thanks to all of you supportive patrons,” a newsletter sent to subscribers March 10 read. “Sometime this year, the curtain will draw and the show will end for good.” The Clova Cinema building, listed on the
BOAZ JOSEPH FILE / THE LEADER
Clova Cinema owner Craig Burghardt during better days – 2007. City’s Heritage Register, is located at 5732 176 St. It has been sold to Crossridge Church, a religious group that’s been leasing the auditorium for Sunday services. For now, the Clova is still able to obtain movies on 35-mm film. “The church has graciously offered to let us continue running, rent-free, until such a time that film is no longer available,” Burghardt said. He estimates the last show will be near the end
of summer. The theatre – a favourite with local families and movie buffs from across the Lower Mainland – will continue to plan events and “continue to be a giant part of this community.” Burghardt ended his message to patrons on a note of optimism. “We’re still here, for awhile, and hope to cram in as many good memories as possible. And hopefully have some exciting news about a new adventure. Stay tuned.”

In buying the building, Crossridge Church agrees to make repairs and improvements as a condition of the sale of the heritage property. The next step will be to work out a Heritage Revitalization Agreement with the City of Surrey, which wants to see the Clova restored and preserved as a heritage building. The news that the lights will dim at the Clova Cinema comes despite a campaign to raise money for an expensive digital conversion that would be necessary to secure new films, which are increasingly available only on a digital format as the sun sets on the 35-mm film industry. Some $15,000 had been raised to that end. A new digital projector would have breathed new life into the cinema, but Burghardt was concerned about taking on a major liability without any long-term lease assurances.

Following the procedure, her heart stopped beating for 22 minutes, but quick action by doctors and nurses saved her life.

ransportation policy development and implementation is vast, complex, and hugely expensive but so vitally important— arguably a necessity for collective survival in our urban-centric world— that any shirking of the challenge is really not an option. But in comparison with the seemingly unquestioned worthiness of and hence bottomless public purse for health and education policy development and implementation, transportation policy development and implementation and the funding for same is the subject of seemingly endless questioning, re-definition, and rethinking. Review of policy is not necessarily a ‘bad thing’ although it can become so. No matter how expeditiously undertaken, implementing transportation policy decisions is a long process. Inaction leading to paralysis does not promote economic health and collective prosperity. At the moment, the referendum Metro Vancouver citizens were facing at municipal election time this fall to decide on priorities and new revenue sources for public transit has been placed on temporary hold by the provincial government. In early February of this year, The BC Transportation Minister agreed to move the referendum date to “no later than June 30, 2015,” thereby adding a year-and-a-half more time to … here is where it starts to get murky. The idea for the referendum came from the province. It depends on there being a defined regional transportation plan with options. Presumably the plan would have come from Translink, the government-created authority
responsible for Metro Vancouver’s regional transportation network including public transport and the major roads and bridges. The region’s mayors, however, for many reasons opposed the idea of the referendum and demanded a stronger role for themselves in setting transportation priorities and in acting on behalf of their citizenry to find new sources for and control of funding. In response to the Mayors’ position, the Transportation Minister said he was prepared to legislate change to increase mayoral authority over TransLink’s long-term strategies and projects. This will involve TransLink’s board overseeing operations, budgets and plans in a manner consistent with strategies and plans put forward by the mayors. Then he set a new deadline: “We are asking the mayors’ council to define a regional expansion plan by June 30, 2014,” the Minister explained. “This will allow time for the mayors to build a clear and articulate plan, identify the costs, funding sources and, indeed, finalize the question to support a regional campaign leading to the referendum.” Obviously, identifying funding sources is a crucially important issue. If the mayors conclude that existing funding sources — the fare box and property taxes — will be sufficient, they can proceed without further approval from the province. If they decide, however, to seek a new funding source or sources, then the provincial government will require this to be approved by regional referendum. Vancouverites care about transportation issues but this ‘story’ touching as it does on so many intertwined aspects of the challenge—who defines the vision? What is the proper role for governments at all the various levels? What is the proper role for Translink? And, finally, who pays? It is tough to follow. The mayors have asked for and received an enormous challenge. Vancouverites will face an equally tough challenge if the referendum proceeds as currently planned. …by Cedric Hughes, Barrister & Solicitor with regular weekly contributions from Leslie McGuffin, LL.B.

BLANK RUDOLF “RUDY” ALBERT APRIL 2ND, 1948 – JANUARY 18TH, 2014
Robinson, Larry Gordon 1949 - 2014 With the greatest sadness, the family announces the passing of Councillor Larry Robinson on March 15th, 2014 at Peace Arch Hospital. He passed away peacefully with his family by his side after a very courageous battle with cancer. He was a truly wonderful man, a kind and loving Husband, Father, Brother, Son, Grandfather and Step Dad and uncle. Larry was loved and respected by all who knew him. Larry was born in Regina on Feb. 9th, 1949. He was a brilliant scholar, a very talented artist, mentor, fitness instructor and health enthusiast who was often seen pole walking the hills and kayaking on our water front. He was a friend to so many. Larry worked for Air Canada in Regina and Vancouver and was indispensable in the Legal department after many years on the ramp. He will also be sadly missed by his Homelife Benchmark family. Larry loved White Rock and became a valued and respected White Rock City Councillor three years ago and loved the challenges that brought and the friendship of his peers. He was dedicated and brought professionalism to all he did. Left to mourn are his wife, Ann, his mother Margaret, father Gordon, sons Aaron (Lise), Jesse, his brothers, Garry (Ann) and Ron (Lynda) his adored grandaughter Amelia, nephews and his niece, Heather. He had so many friends here and in Regina and will be sadly missed by all who were lucky enough to have known him, including his friends at his favourite coffee shop. A celebration of life will be held at White Rock Community Centre on Monday, March 24th between 1 and 3 p.m. All are welcome.
It is with our deepest sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of our dear brother, uncle and friend, Rudolf Albert Blank. Rudy as he liked to be called or Rudy “Root Beer” as we kids used to affectionately call him, passed away January 18, 2014. He went peacefully after a day of doing some of his favorite things. Rudy was predeceased by his parents Herman and Emma Blank, as well as his older sisters Edeltraud and Hannelore Blank. Rudy is survived by his brothers Herman (Shirley), Heinz (Karen), Karl-Heinz (Suzan). As well are his many nieces and nephews which include Rico and Danny Mielnicki, Anthony, Rosemary, Dwayne, Nicole, Erich, Jason and Donna Blank; Carey Coutino, and Neil Wells. He also left many great nieces and nephews and one great, great nephew as well as many family abroad who will miss him dearly. Born in Germany on April 2nd 1948 he lived there until the age of nine when his parents packed up and immigrated from Germany to Canada. Landing on the east coast they boarded a train and took a trip across the Country before landing at their final destination of Vancouver B.C. Rudy always seemed to long for that feeling of adventure and when he could he did something about it. After finishing school Rudy joined the Canadian Navy and while traveling the world he managed to earn his boiler makers ticket. After his tour was over he came home and helped his brothers and parents run their family dairy farm. Besides farming Rudy tried many different career paths including working early on at Pan abode homes. Rudy also worked as a custodial engineer, a nature park caretaker, he was even a small business owner . Rudy tried a variety of careers before finding a home with his latest employer who he was with until his final days. He enjoyed his job immensely in particular his fellow workers who we found out were extremely fond of him as well. Rudy was a man of many interests and pursued anything he liked with a wonderful almost childlike wide eyed enthusiasm. That was just who he was, and so it’s no wonder kids gravitated to him like he was wearing a suit made out of candy. Rudy was someone who truly enjoyed spending time with both family and friends pursuing all kinds of interests and hobbies. Whether it was a simple game of cards, a dinner and a movie or a heated battle on the computer with his nephew Danny, Rudy went in 100% all the time. Never wanting to sit still, Rudy was always trying something new. He was a treasure hunter, a Golfer a bowler, a fisherman an amateur film maker and so many more things. Rudy was anything that let him be challenged, and his spirit of adventure and enthusiasm will be missed by all. Rudy was laid to rest beside his parents, Herman and Emma, not far from the old family farm. The entire family would like to express our deepest gratitude to all those friends and family who were able to attend Rudy’s funeral as well as those of you who shared stories and words of encouragement in our families time of need.
Goodbye Rudy you will be missed!
