‘Unacceptable’ that system changes will be off-loaded to consumers, opponents say

Businesses call for recycling rethink Terry Farrell Staff Reporter

Local business associations are weighing in on the debate around impending recyclingsystem changes, as the implementation date draws near. Officials with the Surrey Board of Trade and the South Surrey & White Rock Chamber of Commerce say their primary concern is not where money for the Multi Material

BC program is going, but rather, where it is coming from – consumers. “I think the intent… is admirable, in terms of wanting to reduce waste, I mean, really, that’s what this is,” Anita Huberman, CEO of the Surrey Board of Trade, said Tuesday. “But when you are talking about a program, managed by a separate entity, that is going to add significant costs to business, which will then off-load that cost to con-

sumers, that is not acceptable. I just don’t think that the province has really thought this through. This is just not in the best interest of our economic health.” The NDP is accusing the provincial government of handing over control of B.C.’s blue box recycling system to Toronto-based multinational executives who will be unaccountable while B.C. businesses and households pay higher costs.

Opposition small-business critic Lana Popham raised the issue of MMBC in the legislature Monday, calling on the province to change course before the agency’s new system for recycling packaging and printed paper takes effect May 19. “If government doesn’t take a step back, B.C.’s recycling system is going to end up in a giant dumpster,” the Saanich South i see page 4

Bike squad returns to Surrey

Police put the pedal to crime Alex Browne Staff Reporter

Concerns about spiralling crime in Newton, including the Dec. 29 murder of hockey mom Julie Paskall, has led to the re-emergence of one of Surrey’s most visible police presences. The Surrey RCMP Bike Squad has been patrolling throughout the city for several weeks, and public response to the sixmember, yellow-jacketed team has been positive, according to the squad’s leader, Cpl. ❝The majority of residents are Neil Kennedy. law-abiding, but “The feedback we have received so for those few far has been very who are not, encouraging,” he said. they don’t see us “Residents and business are very coming.❞ pleased to see us out Cpl. Bert Paquet here, and being on Surrey RCMP bikes allows us to provide a much more personalized level of policing.” Surrey’s bike squad was disbanded in the mid-2000s, media relations officer Cpl. Bert Paquet told Peace Arch News. “At that time, priorities shifted, with the emphasis on an adequate number of general duty officers to improve on service delivery for the front line of response,” he said. Since being reinstated three weeks ago, the squad has logged more than 140 street

In addition, the team has been successful in arresting people not abiding by court conditions, and in getting a number of weapons off the streets. Police say the aim of the proactive strategy is to make it “uncomfortable” for those intent on causing harm in the community. In the aftermath of Paskall’s death after

a vicious beating outside Newton Arena – in what appears to have been a random, unmotivated attack – and statistics that show the greatest number of murders in Surrey last year took place in Newton, the public has been urging a more visible police presence on the streets. The return of bike patrols was one of a number of strategies Chief Supt. Bill Fordy – himself a former member of Surrey RCMP’s Bike Squad in the 1990s – said would be examined, during a Jan. 7 public meeting in Newton.

All of the officers on the current squad come from community policing backgrounds, and have a range of experience from general duty to investigative policing – plus the ability to access areas of the city that vehicle patrols can’t easily reach. “They’re very silent, very covert, which gives us an advantage,” Paquet said, adding he, too, has had bike-patrol experience. “The majority of residents are lawabiding, but for those few who are not, they i see page 4

Suspended licences make driving in Washington a crime

U.S. court awaits defiant B.C. drivers Jeff Nagel Black Press

A growing number of B.C. motorists are getting a nasty surprise after ignoring speeding tickets issued in Washington State because they don’t think the long arm of Uncle Sam can reach them. Blaine city administrators say many Canadians are regularly appearing in court there to face criminal charges of driving while under license suspension that stem from unpaid traffic tickets. They say the typical case involves a B.C. motorist who gets caught speeding in Washington and ignores the ticket because they think they’re immune to U.S. enforcement. But about three months after the ticket is issued –  if it’s not paid or disputed –  state authorities declare that driver’s B.C. licence suspended in Washington.

The next time the driver crosses the border $1,000 and up to 90 days in jail. they’re nabbed instantly by U.S. authorities But that’s not the biggest problem for many for driving while suspended.  hapless B.C. drivers.

back to Blaine for court have to make sure they don’t drive themselves across the border or they’ll be nailed for a second offence. An even worse fate awaits those who ignore the court summons for driving while suspended and then try to cross the border again – regardless of whether they’re driver or passenger. “A warrant for their arrest gets issued,” Blaine prosecutor Rajeev Majumdar said. “And then when they cross the border they actually get arrested and taken to jail.” Saunders knows one B.C. woman who was handcuffed at the Highway 15 truck crossing and held overnight in jail on a four-year-old speeding ticket that had morphed into a driving-while-suspended charge. “I’d be terrified if it was me,” said King. “Ignoring it isn’t the correct option. It’s going to come back to bite you.”

Newton bingo hall doesn’t satisfy ‘vision’

BCLC pulls plug on slots The BC Lottery Corporation has decided to pull slot machines from the Newton bingo hall. The lottery corporation announced the decision in a news release Wednesday afternoon, citing “changing local market conditions, which do not satisfy BCLC’s vision to offer outstanding gaming and entertainment” as the reason for pulling the one-armed bandits from the facility. Newton Bingo Country, at 7093 King George Blvd., has been home to 150 slot machines since October 2012. However, earlier this month, Surrey council asked city staff to address the potential removal of the slot machines on the basis that Gateway Casinos and Entertainment – who were seeking to redevelop and renovate the property into a community gaming centre – had not met a May 1 deadline to begin construction, as detailed in its project-development agreement (PDA). Gateway and BCLC disputed the notion. The PDA, obtained by Black Press, stated that permits had been applied for and demolition of two buildings had been completed, though “no construction has taken place.” The city was not a signatory on the PDA, and BCLC had the final say as to whether the slots would be removed. According to the release, the slots will be discontinued by May 15. It is the second time in just over a year that a gaming proposal has been shot down in Surrey. In January 2013, a proposal for a South Surrey casino was voted down in council. In Wednesday’s release, BCLC stated that it will continue to “review options to serve the gaming marketplace south of the Fraser River.” – Black Press

Family home gutted in Newton fire Warren Jané Black Press

A Surrey family’s home was badly damaged Tuesday after a fire broke out in Newton. Firefighters responded to a report of a house fire in the 13500-block of 59 Avenue just after 5 p.m. March 25. Aside from the intentional demolition of a tile roof deemed to be a safety hazard, the situation was dealt with rather quickly, said

assistant fire Chief Brian Woznikoski. “It was extinguished within the first 15 minutes the guys were on scene,” Woznikoski said. “Then from there, what they were doing was pretty much putting out hot spots.” No one was injured in the blaze and there were no occupants inside the building at the time of the fire. Wednesday morning, an accessibility ramp

and electric wheelchair could be seen outside the house, both melted in the fire, and the front window was shattered. The inside of the residence was in rough shape, but a three-car garage appeared to be undamaged. Damage to a neighbouring home included some melted vinyl siding. Cause of the fire remains under investigation.

Huberman acknowledged the response contradicts the official stance taken by the BC Chamber of Commerce. “I know that the BC Chamber has indicated that they are very pleased with the amendments that the province made to small businesses to try to reduce the burden (of the new program), but that is not what we are hearing on the ground – neither of our organizations.” Neither the Surrey Board of Trade, nor the South Surrey & White Rock Chamber of Commerce are members of the BC Chamber of Commerce. Huberman said that although the new program is slated to take effect in less than two months, there is still time to put a halt to the proceedings. “It is never too late to do anything,” she said. “If a lot of noise is made, that makes a difference. The premier, she does have a history of paying attention to what people are saying. She doesn’t always listen, but in some cases she has, and she has reversed decisions. So it’s not too late to reverse this decision, one that is going to add costs to businesses and really hurt our economy.” – with files from Jeff Nagel and Daniel Palmer

Extended spring vacation to continue in Surrey

Two-week break to stay Sheila Reynolds Black Press

Surrey School District’s twoweek spring break is here to stay – for a few more years, anyway. The extended spring break vacation will remain on the school calendar until at least 2017, following approval of Surrey’s district-wide school calendars for the next three consecutive school years – 20142015, 2015-2016 and 2016-2017. Each, approved at the Surrey

Board of Education’s last meeting on March 13, includes six non-instructional days throughout the year, as well as four or five extra school-closure days in Surrey to extend the normally week-long provincial spring break in March. The extra spring break days add up to a savings of at least $500,000 for the school district. Spring break will be March 9-20 next year, March 14-25 in 2016 and March 13-24 in 2017.

Trustee Reni Masi said the district consulted with parents, students and employees about the school calendar proposals and all were supportive. The School Amendment Act (Bill 36) enacted in spring 2012, established new rules wherein there is no longer a standard B.C. school calendar and each district is required to establish its own school schedules following consultation with stakeholders.

Misuse of funds warrants more than a shrug

I

t’s not just about Nigerian inheritance schemes, or people stealing credit cards or financial information. Questionable activities touch each and every taxpayer whose hard-earned dollars are siphoned by politicians for unjustified “expenses.” If we have learned anything from last year’s Senate expense scandals, and the recent revelations concerning former Alberta premier Alison Redford’s travel expenses, it’s that this is a problem that crosses all party lines and involves all political stripes. A recent example being publication of details of the vacation expenses billed by NDP MLA Jenny Kwan to the Portland Hotel Society, a not-for-profit organization already under fire for its expenses record. Kwan’s subsequent repayment of the sum was a reason for rejoicing on the right. That jubilation has been tempered somewhat by the revelation, also this month, of travel expenses billed by B.C. legislature Speaker Linda Reid, a B.C. Liberal MLA, for her husband – so that he could join her on a trip to South Africa. In addition to issuing a public apology, Reid has also repaid the sum in total. Whatever the mitigating circumstances of each case, neither inspires confidence in our system. Abusing public trust and dipping into public funds is, or should be, indefensible, no matter the spluttering rants of entrenched ideologues on the left or the right, who will always claim that whatever the other party did is worse. Yet oddly, when it comes to political impropriety, our society long ago suspended any notion of justice or punishment that automatically applies to scammers in any other walk of life.  With politicians going on to reap the rewards of generous pensions, lucrative posts and valuable consultancies, it’s no wonder so many average Canadians shrug their shoulders and walk in the other direction when urged to exercise their democratic rights.

beeswax. If nothing else, all my horse saddles and bridles might one day look new again. The shoes, not so much. The beeswax also reminded me that for all the glitz and glitter of the machines, I have out in my field a couple of the best, original and most versatile “ATVs” in the world. With them, and their predecessors, I have been to places inaccessible (legally and otherwise) to even the most adventurous dirt-bike riders. Granted, it takes me a lot longer to get there, but other than the occasional passing of gas, a horse is a far more quiet and serene mode of transport. Then again, once the riding is done a quad or a bike demands nothing. Four-legged transport requires daily maintenance, whether used or not. But quick and cheap and appealing as they may be, a machine will never nuzzle, call out to you, stand at the fence in expectation of happy time when the hay is thrown or race about excitedly when you walk out to the gate. And despite their size and eagerness, they gently take a chunk of carrot out of the hand of a three year old. Perhaps the shoeshine, and the resulting leather conditioner was an omen to not trade in the ponies quite yet. They and the photos of my adventures with them have simply made too many indelible memories to be replaced in my heart and soul.

Forecast cloudy for climate Editor: Re: Sci-fi leaps vs. practicality, March 6 column. Columnist Roy Strang asks how we can adapt to naturally occurring global warming. But there are many who believe burning fossil fuels contributes the most to climate change, with many implications. White Rock has recently begun to put funds into a regional scheme to deal with rising ocean levels, including dikes. At the same time, India is constructing a 2.5 metrehigh fence 3,000 kilometres long, designed to keep the people of Bangladesh out. Not only has the federal government told us not to worry about climate change, it looks forward to the Arctic melting. In 2010, Prime Minister Stephen Harper sang the praises of gas in the Beaufort Sea, oil in the eastern Arctic and diamonds in Nunavut, resources all waiting to be exploited. The same year, the House of Commons passed the Climate Change Accountability Act, but later the Conservative-dominated, unelected Senate killed it. Perhaps Canada’s seemingly nonchalant attitude towards global warming is encouraged by the Climate Vulnerability Monitor put out by DORA. The monitor indicates Canada will be at the low-end of flooding, storms, drought, heat waves and fires. Asia and Africa will not be so fortunate, with food supply taking a big hit. Recently, my son asked me about climate change; my reading has not inspired optimism, so long as record amounts of greenhouse gases are being spewed into the atmosphere. Bob Burgel, Surrey

of checkup. The doctor then took her blood pressure, told her it was high, gave her a month’s supply of sample pills and ordered her to come back when she had finished them. My mom is now on a drug prescribed by a doctor who didn’t even bother to examine her first. Although she agrees his actions were inappropriate, she is now convinced she needs medication. Last night, I noticed her speech was slurred and that she seemed slightly confused – entirely out of character. It could be that she was simply tired, however, certain high blood-pressure medications do manifest in that way. Until a physician examines her appropriately, I will remain concerned that she has been improperly and perhaps dangerously medicated. This incident illustrates a troubling example of bullying and is a form of elder abuse that is easy to overlook and often difficult to recognize. The doctor’s actions were unethical and unconscionable. I am shocked and appalled and will be filing a complaint with the BC Medical Association. It is a cautionary tale for others. Caregivers and children of aging

parents should be aware of the potential vulnerability of seniors. It is very disturbing and disheartening, however, that we must even be wary of people in such positions of trust. Patti McClocklin, Carvel, Alta.

Surrey’s future treeless Editor: I’ve lived in Surrey since 1989, and I’ve seen lots of changes. Our population has increased by 25 per cent over the past ten years alone – from 394,000 to 501,000, and we have to make room and homes for all those new residents. A drive that used to take 10 minutes now takes 30. What were once fields of grass, bushes and trees are now shopping centres, car dealerships, homes and parking lots. My friends just received a notice from the Surrey planning and development department announcing that much of the green space near their home is slated to be developed into housing. The trees will be torn down (and

likely burned). The grassy fields will be covered with asphalt and houses. I don’t know what will happen to the creek that runs through it, but I do know that it won’t be as clean as it has been, and the salmon that spawn there every winter will probably disappear forever. Surrey used to call itself ‘The City of Parks.’ Yeah, INDUSTRIAL PARKS! Their slogan is now ‘The future lives here,’ and it appears that there are no trees in the future! Jerry Steinberg, Surrey

Caution prescribed Editor: My elderly mother recently visited a walk-in clinic in White Rock, intent upon finding a doctor to take her as a regular patient. Her current doctor’s office is located far from her home, and she is no longer driving. As an independent, healthy and drug-free 94-year-old, she had rarely visited her doctor but now wanted to locate someone nearby before any serious health issues might arise. The clinic doctor first offered to provide her with drugs for free, if she would pay him $100. Being neither a pharmacist dispensing drugs, nor an insurance agent offering medical coverage, I can only speculate that his intention was to charge her for drug samples. She refused, saying that she never needed or used drugs, whereupon he began to lecture about the danger of the high blood pressure he said she had. Mom has never had high blood pressure.

Letter-writer David Poole says the single-transferable vote system is nothing like proportional representation.

No vote for system comparison Editor: Re: Election reform needs big push, March 11 letters. When letter-writer D.L. Randall claims that the current electoral system, first-past-the-post, is flawed, she is right. But when she claims that our B.C. referendum allowed support for “proportional representation” (PR), she is dead wrong. The system on the referendum ballots was the single transferable vote (STV). And STV is absolutely not PR. While there are myriad folks intent on promoting STV as PR, no one has ever provided a molecule of justification, because there is none. There are at least 10 reasons why STV is not PR. Here

is just one: PR means that the percentage of total votes that a party receives entitles it to elect in the parliament close to the same percentage of party candidates… percentage party votes equals percentage party seats. STV has no votes for parties, just votes for individual candidates and hence no mechanism for determining percentage votes cast for a party, essential for PR elections. Additionally, many votes in BC-STV are fragmented and transferred hither and yon among candidates down to tiny fragments of seven decimal places of one vote. Electoral reform… maybe. But STV… never!

Nature around us has changed enormously, and much has gone forever. Is it possible to bring nature back, to re-wild the landscape? A growing movement believes we can. They point to the success of wolf restorations in Yellowstone Park, which caused a cascade of beneficial results to other species. Whales are recovering after decades of hunting, trumpeter swans rebounded from nearextinction and the California condor is flying freely once more. Dedication and legislation are key, but we also need to restore memories of what “wild” means. The Museum of Vancouver hopes to do just that with its new exhibit: Rewilding Vancouver: Remember, Reconnect, Rewild. Guest curator and writer J.B.MacKinnon’s book, The Once and Future World, was the inspiration for this thoughtprovoking show. Anne Murray, the author of two nature books available in local book stores, writes monthly in the Peace Arch News – www. natureguidesbc.com

NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING – MARCH 31, 2014 PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT VARIANCE PERMIT NO. 356

Evan Seal photo

Dave Rogers scales the wall at the Coastal Climbing Centre in Newton.

Surrey man raising money for cancer research

Climbing for a cause Evan Seal Black Press

A local outdoor enthusiast is looking to introduce newcomers to the sport of rock climbing while at the same time raising money for cancer research. Having been an avid rock climber for 13 years, Dave Rogers approached the owners of the Coastal Climbing Centre in Newton about offering the space for an evening of climbing, with all proceeds going to The Ride to Conquer Cancer benefitting the BC Cancer Foundation. “I have a friend…whose son has leukemia. I like cycling and climbing and I thoughtn you know, why not?” said Rogers. “And really that’s how it all started.” Rogers took part in the Ride to Conquer Cancer last year but some paperwork issues at the border didn’t allow him to complete the two-day ride to Seattle, so he rode the equivalent mileage (250 kilometres) in Canada instead. He plans on completing the ride this year.

And he’s also organized the climbing fundraiser. “I spoke to my friends that own the Coastal Climbing Centre gym and asked if I could rent a section of the gym for the night and I would donate all the money I make to the cancer foundation in their name and they thought that was a great idea.” The climbing wall will be be available for two hours with belayers (climbers who use safety ropes to make sure you don’t fall) on site throughout the night. “Rock climbing is a sport that not a lot of people try,” said Rogers. “It’s a super fun sport and a lot safer than people think.” The Climbing for a Cure event is $20 and takes place Sunday, April 13 from 5-7 p.m. at Coastal Climbing Centre, located at 202-7728 128 St. It is open to all ages and no previous experience is necessary. Rogers is also looking for door prizes for the event. For information, contact Dave Rogers at 604-785-4758 or email bmynbr@ hotmail.com

Workers vote overwhelmingly in favour of job action

Under New Management

SkyTrain strike looming Jeff Nagel Black Press

Unionized SkyTrain workers have voted 95 per cent for strike action to back contract demands but no shutdown of the rapid transit system is imminent. CUPE local 7000 spokesperson Annaliese Hunt said mediated negotiations are scheduled for next week and no job action will be taken before then. A strike by the 537 employees who run SkyTrain’s Expo and Millennium lines would not affect service on the Canada Line from Richmond to Vancouver. The union has not yet issued

SkyTrain at Sapperton station. 72-hour strike notice and Hunt said the union is still hopeful for a deal with TransLink’s SkyTrain subsidiary, B.C. Rapid Transit Co. “The strike vote result shows just how frustrated our members

are,” Hunt said. She said the main issues are management-proposed concessions to reduce sick-plan benefits and introduce a two-tiered system for retiree benefits. Hunt said the two sides have agreed to two-per-cent wage increases in the first two years of an expected three-year contract, while the union wants 2.5 per cent and the company is offering one per cent in the final year. Wages had been frozen for the previous two years and workers have been without a contract since last summer. Talks broke down last month.

Low dollar no boon The loonie’s drop below 90 cents U.S. this month is not necessarily good news for the Canadian economy, says one analyst. Former Statistics Canada analyst Philip Cross says it’s a myth that devaluation of the dollar broadly stimulates the economy and spurs prosperity. Instead, Cross says a lower dollar leads to higher domestic prices, which hurt consumers, and higher importing and financing costs, which hurt businesses and government. He notes gasoline is one of several commodities priced in U.S. dollars. “So when the loonie drops, people pay more at the pumps,” he said in an analysis published by the Fraser Institute. Machinery and equipment is also mostly imported, he said, so those costs will go up.

India beckons once again, every few years it seems I need my India fix. My last trip was so wonderful that I decided to do it one more time! Indians are proud of their country and welcome the visitors who have come a long way to see its accomplishments and beauty. They are delighted to share all the vast attractions of their diverse country and are a hospitable people. There is so much to discover it is difficult to choose. For a first time visitor the lure of Rajasthan is irresistible with its  gorgeous towns full of colour, palaces and crafts. Add to this Varanasi, Khajuraho, Agra, Jaipur, Udaipur and a stay at the remarkable Ramatra Fort and you experience a wonderful introduction to India in first class hotels.

BC REG#33131

This special group safari is limited to only 12 people! Time and again, through my 35+ years at White Rock Travel, I’ve heard the best game viewing in all of Africa is in Botswana – let’s experience it together! Our basic itinerary will include 7 nights Botswana, then 2 nights to see Victoria Falls, followed by time in Cape Town, and the wine area: Stellenbosch. This fly in safari will visit three completely different and phenomenal ecological areas of Botswana: the Kalahari Desert, the Okavango Delta, and the Linyanti Reserve. Each area offers a totally new wildlife experience, because the environment is so different in each! For example, woodlands habitat attracts a different mix of mammals than the Namib desert, and the wetlands of the Okavango Delta will be different again!

We stay in intimate, boutique-style camps, available only to small groups and individuals, in some of the best locations in the national parks. Our game drives will be in open 4 X 4 landrovers, with expert trackers and rangers. We’ll glide through the waterways in mokoros, and enjoy walking safaris with our local tracker. We start in the Kalahari, where the summer rains will bring the grasses and plains to life, with hundreds of springbok, gemsbok and wildebeest, which in turn attract the major predators, such as lion and cheetah.

GRIZZLY BEAR ADVENTURE

Then we fly by light aircraft on to the Okavango Delta, and stay at Little Vumbura Camp. This beautiful tented camp only accommodates 6 couples. Game viewing is consistently good all year with elephant, sable and buffalo along with extensive plains game. It’s also home to ample predators: lion, leopard and cheetah. From here, we fly on to the Linyanti Reserve, for our stay at Duma Tau Camp. This camp has tented rooms under thatch. Large elephant herds usually traverse the area, with excellent year round wildlife viewing, and birdwatching is a definite highlight. We say goodbye to Botswana, and travel on to the stunning Victoria Falls in Zambia. Then its off to Cape Town! We enjoy three nights in Cape Town, with tours to Cape Point and around the city, and finish off with two nights in Stellenbosch, in the heart of the Cape Winelands!

Surrey girls team beats North Shore to end hockey season on high note

Falcons soar to provincial bantam title Michael Hall Black Press

In a fitting end to a remarkable season, the Surrey Falcons defeated the North Shore Avalanche 5-1 last Thursday (March 20) in the final of the B.C. Hockey Female Bantam A championship. The Falcons were up 2-0 after the first

period at the Pomeroy Sport Centre in Fort St. John, and built on that lead with two more goals in the second and one in the third. Mya Taylor and Danika Pasqua each scored twice, while linemate Jessie Sanghe had a goal and two assists. Emily Duchak added two assists, and Chelsea Humphreys had one. Rosetta Maggio was a standout in net.

North Shore and Surrey had battled throughout the year, with the Avalanche edging the Falcons in the final of the Wickfest tournament in Calgary in November and the Falcons topping North Shore in a shootout in the final of the Superheart tournament in Surrey in February. The Falcons were second to North Shore in

both league play and in the Pacific Coast playoffs, only to come out on top at the provincials. “The girls were determined throughout the week to come out on top,” said assistant coach Boyd Stoppler. “Everyone contributed and put the team first. They refused to be denied of the championship. It’s a very special group.” i see page 31

Hazelmere junior golfer wins long-drive event South Surrey golfer Ian Kim got the junior golf season off to a fine start two weeks ago in Coquitlam, winning the junior boys long drive competition at the Maple Leaf Golf Tour’s season opener. Driving the ball in extremely windy conditions, Kim, who golfs

out of Hazelmere Golf and Country Club, edged a pair of Langley golfers – Gavin Ciulla and Andy Kim – for the honour. The event was held as part of the Maple Leaf Tour’s two-day tournament, in which the first round was played at the Meadow

Gardens Golf Club in Pitt Meadows, and the second round at Coquitlam’s Vancouver Golf Club. Next up for the Maple Leaf Tour is the two-day Kikkor Classic at Morgan Creek Golf Course, set for April 5-6. – Nick Greenizan

Driveway readers to spend billions to buy a new set of wheels Driveway readers are in the mood to splash out an astonishing $3.6 billion-plus of their hard-earned cash to buy new vehicles this year. This is not some by Keith Morgan wild, optimistic prediction but a solid forecast based on what our readers revealed in a comprehensive survey conducted on behalf of Black Press by Pulse Research, a company with 30 years of experience in asking the right questions of consumers. In a series of wide-ranging interviews, Black Press newspaper readers from all over the province gave Pulse a comprehensive account of their spending plans. Their intention to spend $53.1 million on fish and chips, $45.8 million on tooth whitening, $13.1 million on tattoos or piercing, $9.1 million on pet toys and $1.9 million on tuxedos, raised some smiles. But the auto spending intent grabbed our serious attention. A massive 123,275 households will take vehicles for a spin and sign on the dotted line. A massive 51,895 will park a new car on their driveway, 32,312 will house a sport ute in their garage, while another 28,395 will opt for a truck out front.

New Audi brings design appeal to the luxury SUV

‘‘

’’

Looks When I picked up my test SQ5, something looked different. I quickly realized that the 20-inch wheels had been replaced by 19-inch wheels, fitted with winter tires. The stance of the SQ5 looks so much better with 20-inch wheels or the optional 21-inch wheels for just $1,000 more. The SQ5 has a slightly lower ride than the other Q5 models and comes with splash of grey trim inside the front air intakes, side mirrors, rear air diffuser, plus subtle badging. It could be argued that the SQ5 is a little too subtle for the $57,000 starting price.

Inside Audi has been referenced as the high point in interior design. I would agree that the latest products have some wonderful materials and design, but this SQ5 is starting to show its age a bit. The screen in the dash is on the small side compared to huge screens from BMWs X3 and domestic brands like the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The lower parts of the dash and doors still have hard plastic bits, where BMW does a better job of covering theirs in soft-touch materials. Even on this top model, Audi still charges a whopping $3,200 for navigation and $1,000 for the Bang & Olufson sound system. In this day of navigationequipped smartphones, the obscene amounts car companies charge for navi-equipped cars will soon end. On the positive side, the SQ5 is fitted with superb seats that are bolstered perfectly and covered in ultra-soft leather. The seating position is first rate as is outward visibility, cargo space and rear seat room.

Drive The base Q5 is fitted with a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder with 220 horsepower. This model is a nice balance of fuel economy and driving pleasure. The SQ5 comes with a supercharged 3.0L V6, with a heart-stopping 347 hp. The base car will take a run to 100 km/h in 7.1 seconds, the SQ5 in just 5.3 seconds, almost a full two seconds quicker. What is the most impressive part of the SQ5 is just how good it is to drive in any situation, thanks to the standard Audi Drive Select system. Being able to change the sensitivity of the steering, throttle response, transmission changes and even the sound of the engine, makes this SQ5 a pleasure in stop and go driving or full throttle passing on the highway. I found the comfort setting to be best in the city and the dynamic setting for open road cruising. The ride is firm and very responsive,

without being too choppy, and combined with the potent engine can be placed into corners and is sucked to the pavement, thanks to a sophisticated Quattro AWD system.

Verdict The Q5 is a solid choice for anyone looking for a premium compact SUV. The base four-cylinder model starts at $40,900 and is the best seller. This SQ5 is the powerhouse version and does everything so well, point it where you want to go and it will get you there, with a smile on your face. What might be the best of both worlds in the 3.0L turbocharged diesel Q5 with 428 pound feet of thunderous torque that makes it very quick, but also more fuel-efficient, or the detuned 3.0L supercharged V6 with 272 hp.

he 200 is not a new nameplate for Chrysler but the 2015 model is allnew from the ground up. This generation of 200 debuts the new “face of Chrysler” with its signature grille and logo. There’s also a standard set of rear LED tail lamps, and the interior craftsmanship is much more impressive than before. This mid-size sedan is hoping to play ball – and win – against competitors like the Ford Fusion, Honda Accord, Mazda 6 and Toyota Camry, in an everaggressive segment. Here are the meat and potatoes for the all-new vehicle. There are four trims of 200 available. First is the LX and that has a starting MSRP of $22,995. Then there’s the Limited, the S and the top-of-the-line C model. Regardless of trim, each comes with an industry-first, ninespeed automatic transmission. Under the hood of the Limited is a 2.4L, four-cylindrer MultiAir engine (MSRP $24,995). This power plant produces 184 horsepower and 173 pound-feet of torque. The interior reflects that of thoughtful craftsmanship and design. Soft touch materials are used throughout and the layout is easy on the eyes. Not to mention the abundance of cubbyholes in which to place personal items. The centre stack can be adorned with either a five-inch touch screen or the optional 8.4inch. On the road, the 2.4L Limited shines brightest when on the highway and on long stretches of pavement. It has ability in the twists and turns, but to really get a dynamic feel, you’d need to opt for the S or C trim to put it in the “sport” mode. In that case, you get a different suspension setup and steering feel to really allow you to have more fun in the captain’s chair. Back to the 2.4L though. In the city, the 2.4L gives plenty enough power. Steering feel is light and allows to car the move with ease at slow speeds and gingerly into parking spots. Overall, a pleasant drive. The award winning 3.6L, Pentastar V6 packs 295 horsepower

Confessions of a Curber It’s only been a month, but I can see myself selling cars for a long, long time. I feel like a new man. One evening, I was in line at the superstore. An elderly gentleman saw my shopping cart. I had a new digital tire gauge that I was going to give to my next buyer. Turns out he was looking for a used car as he’d recently given his car to his grandson. He just needed something basic. “This is your lucky day!” I told him. The old fellow was around my father-in-law’s age – close to 80. He walked with a cane and had two ear pieces. I was practically shouting to him. What an easy sale. I decided to give him a ride and show him the car. He went on to tell me about his young granddaughter, too. At any rate, we got to the car – it was a base model with an automatic transmission. “It’s perfect for you, sir!” I exclaimed. He got in and sat at the wheel. His face lit up right away. I could tell that he’d been a car enthusiast in his younger days. “Where’d you get this car, son?” he asked me. “It’s my dad’s old car – he passed away and I

“Somewhere along the line, the rebuilt status was dropped.”

just can’t keep it anymore,” I lied. In reality, I imported the car from Washington. It came with documents that mentioned New York State. The title was clean, so I assumed it was in good condition. I priced the vehicle quite high – well over its value. But he didn’t know, and he didn’t ask any more questions. I told him I had another buyer interested (another lie), and that he had to make a decision right away. With no hesitation, he got a bank draft and I gave him the keys. Like I promised, I threw in the new tire gauge. Marty gave me a wink and slowly drove off. Another foolish customer, I thought. No history report to keep me on my toes. And worse, he needs to get it inspected, registered and insured within 30 days - I didn’t bother. I just got my buddy in Bellingham to help me get it across. That evening, I took out the papers I’d received with the car. I decided to go over them more thoroughly. I guess I was a bit bored. Turns out, the vehicle had been registered in four U.S. states. Somewhere along the line, the rebuild* status was dropped. Probably intentionally. The inspection and ICBC will catch that. And who knows if the odometer is right? At least it’s no longer mine. *Rebuild – A vehicle written off as a total loss by an insurance company, then rebuilt and certified for use. This term does not describe a vehicle that has a new or repaired motor, transmission or other major part. Rebuilds offer savings when repaired well, but a buyer has a right to know it was rebuilt. But this buyer didn’t and Walt walked away with the cash.

Design and livability combine at Sixth + Willow By Kerry Vital

The ultimate modern lifestyle has arrived in Vancouver at Sixth + Willow, a townhouse community from Kenstone Properties that has people talking. The curving weathered steel screen on the exterior is something unique in the area and has inspired a lot of interest. “We were inspired by the location, and the busyness and traffic along 6th Avenue,” says Kenstone’s director Edwin Liang.

“It references the speed and movement of cars; it’s almost like an armour.” The weathered steel screen on the exterior of the development also filters out noise from the streets around it, and allows for residents to look out while hiding their home from view. It’s been garnering a lot of buzz. “People don’t really understand it,” says Liang. “While we were constructing it, people would stop to look at it, and

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

people in the neighbourhood ask about it. There have been a lot of questions. Sometimes people think we’re being funky for the sake of it, but that’s not the case here.” The screen has already been installed, and the weathering steel will continue to oxidize and attain a rusty patina, adding to the beauty of the architecture. “You’re witnessing a process,” says Liang. “The process isn’t as beautiful as the finished product. These homes were designed and developed to be experienced in person.” Liang notes that Kenstone’s end goal is to create enduring value for their homeowners, and this will continue at Sixth + Willow. “We concentrate on the livability of our projects,” he says. “We build something different.” Inside, the townhomes have been built to ensure tons of natural light and afford beautiful views. Homeowners are within walking distance of tons of amenities, including dining, shopping, leisure and recreation. For more information about Sixth + Willow, visit www. sixthandwillow.com.

With a fantastic location, beautiful homes and plenty of amenities, it’s no surprise that people from all over the Lower Mainland are flocking to it. “Burnaby is a sought-after city to live in,” says Greg Zayadi, vice-president of sales and marketing for Anthem Properties. “This is an incredible little neighbourhood we’re creating.” The second tower at Station Square will open for sale in mid-May, and will be a 48-storey building encompassing 443 condominium homes. “The first tower has been a huge success,” says Zayadi. “There’s a huge amount of interest in the next tower.” Zayadi says that Anthem will offer the same beautiful features as in the first tower, but with a few changes, including slightly different floorplans.

Station Square will eventually include five towers and tons of retail and commercial space. Among the confirmed tenants are Rexall, Save On Foods, TD Canada Trust and Caffe Artigiano. There will also be direct access to SkyTrain and transit. If you choose to venture off your property, the Metrotown neighbourhood offers plenty of options for shopping, dining, leisure and recreation. The architecture at Station Square will be distinctive and modern, with bay windows and plenty of glass and concrete. “The tower has been inspired by New Yorkstyle art deco skyscrapers and is intended to stand proudly in its own right, appearing taller than it actually is by incorporating vertical elements such as the deco top, bay window and superframe elements,” according to architect Chris Dikeakos Architects Inc. Due to the height of the building, homeowners at Station Square’s second tower will have breathtaking views. Inside, modern gourmet kitchens feature stainless-steel appliances, contemporary flatpanel laminate cabinetry with under-cabinet recessed puck lighting and quartz countertops with marble accents. Wood laminate flooring throughout the living areas and bedrooms and ceilings up to nine feet in height continue the luxurious theme, while the bathrooms are spa-like and

relaxing, with quartz countertops, a soaker tub and a frameless glass shower surround in select bathrooms. Homeowners will have access to plenty of amenities, including nearly an acre of indoor and outdoor space, Zayadi says. The first and second tower will share some of their

amenities, including an infrared sauna, fitness facility, entertainment lounge with a gourmet kitchen, indoor/outdoor seating and outdoor dining areas and a reflecting pool. Homes start in the $250,000 range. For more information, visit www.stationsquare.ca or call 604-689-3040.

With 25 years of expertise in building restoration and repairs as a result of water ingress, you are assured of being in good hands with EPS Westcoast Construction Ltd. Water damage is a contentious issue for home and building owners in our province. It doesn’t have to be. Let EPS Westcoast Construction Ltd. take that stress away. No job is too big or too small. We do it all, from residential, to low-rise, high-rise and commercial properties, throughout the province. And with in excess of 6,000 projects completed, there’s little, if anything, that we have not seen, and fixed, when it comes to water damage. We are your Building Envelope Restoration specialists. A building envelope is made up of the windows, doors, walls, foundation, floor, ceiling and roof and is the barrier between the conditioned indoor environment and the imposing elements of the outdoor environment. Your building envelope should protect you from these external elements such as extreme temperature, moisture, dust and wind.

The building envelope should also be constructed to ensure durability and not allow for these external elements to become trapped within the walls, almost certainly causing decay and deterioration. Especially in wood frame construction in a mild, wet climate such as Coastal British Columbia. Working with engineers, consultants, building owners/managers, strata corporations and property owners, EPS Westcoast is committed to repairing building envelope failures and preventing reoccurrence. We also offer: – Structural Concrete & Framing Repairs – General Building Repair - Exterior & Interior – Deck Restoration, Repair & Resurfacing – Rot Removal – Maintenance Programs

For more information, visit our website, at www.epswestcoast.com, or call one of our representatives today at 604-538-8249. We even offer a handy online estimate request, where you can get the whole process going from the comfort of your own desk. Don’t get soaked. Let EPS Westcoast Construction Ltd. take care of your water ingress issues.

Real Estate Corner

with Derrick Sims

Q. How can I net more money selling my own home? A. Here are three important tips:

• Set the right price from the start. Homes that sell for the most money are priced right when they go on the market. • Create a comprehensive plan to market your home. You can target buyers through flyers and open houses, but your home should be listed in the official MLS database by a REALTOR® so more buyers see it and you get a price closer to what you’re asking. • Hire an Experienced Home Marketing Expert. A REALTOR® who knows how to effectively market your home can net you more money. Plus, they can save you time by assisting you with every aspect of the sale, from pricing your home to coordinating the closing process.

Wilma Kathleen Warlow May 31, 1931-February 24, 2014

Wilma Warlow went peacefully to be with her Lord at the age of 83. She was preceded in death by her loving husband Jim in 2003. Wilma sadly leaves behind her daughter Heather (Eric) and grandchildren Derek and Brooklyn Hoschka. After marrying her husband in 1955 and settling in Port Kells in 1959 her daughter Heather was born. Wilma loved people and had a kind word and loving smile for everyone she met. Wilma and Jim retired to Summerland where they enjoyed fishing and camping and after the passing of Jim, she moved back to Langley where she reconnected with family and friends through community and church. The last 3 years she spent at Jackman Manor in Aldergrove. Thank you to the nurses and care workers who provided such wonderful care. Memorial to follow at Port Kells Church, 19131 - 88 Ave. Surrey, Sat, April 5 at 1:00 pm. If you wish donations can be made to Port Kells Church.

ROO, Sarah Elaine (nee SIMMONS) December 30, 1939 March 16, 2014 Elaine passed away peacefully at the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital on the evening of Sunday, March 16 after a courageous year-long battle with cancer. She was predeceased by her parents William and Edna Simmons and by brothers Bill, Carl and Art. She is survived by her devoted son Howard Roo, her brother Jim Simmons (Mona), her sister Elnora Simmons, nephews Joe and Ed Simmons, niece Esther Endersby, sisters-in-law Ruth and Verona Simmons, many great nieces and nephews, and former husband, Brian Roo. Elaine was born in Elko, B.C. and moved with her family to Salmo in 1952. She moved to the west coast, married, and settled in the little seaside town of White Rock in 1964. She worked for more than twenty years at the Bank of B.C. (later the Hong Kong Bank of Canada) in White Rock with her best friend, Betty Devaney. She was revered by the bank’s many elderly clients for her friendly, efficient and patient manner. She retired in 1997 and moved to Salmo in 2002 to be close to her family. Elaine was gregarious, funloving, a people person, an avid reader, a puzzle solver, a lover of cats and an excellent mother. She loved her 38 years on Sunset Drive in White Rock with her cats, Tinker and Pirate, watching the storms racing across Semiahmoo Bay and revelling in the spectacular sunsets. Elaine will be missed by all who knew her. At Elaine`s request there will be no service. Al Grywacheski of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ has been entrusted with arrangements. You are invited to leave a personal message of condolence at the family’s online register at www.myalternatives.ca
