Semiahmoo First Nation maintains BNSF needs permission to replace train bridge

Trestle won’t budge ‘without band OK’ Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

While BNSF has said the deteriorating rail bridge over the Little Campbell River can be replaced as early as this summer by accessing it via rail-owned land, Semiahmoo First Nation disagrees. This trestle is on property belonging to Semiahmoo First Nation and any work to address its condition must go through the proper channels first, band spokesperson

Joanne Charles said Friday. While safety is the Semiahmoo’s numberone concern, Charles said, there is more to repairing or replacing the trestle than most people realize. “This is complicated… a very complex legal matter and a legal issue,” Charles told Peace Arch News. The corroded condition of the bridge has been a subject of concern for years – most recently, in the year since the Lac Mégantic,

Que. derailment. It has been earmarked by the railway for replacement since 2011. BNSF spokesperson Gus Melonas told PAN last July and again in January that the company was negotiating with the Semiahmoo for access to build a replacement bridge. April 29, railway officials told White Rock Coun. Grant Meyer and city manager Dan Bottrill they “had a plan” for the trestle, and Melonas then told PAN last week that replacement work could begin within

months and is anticipated to be complete by the end of the year. It would be done using technology that can be applied from railroad property, he said. But Charles said nothing can be done – including from railway property – until full consultation has taken place with the band, Transport Canada and Fisheries and Oceans Canada, and formal permissions are in place. i see page 2

Police overtime

Summit costs city after all Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Surrey taxpayers spent more than $30,000 in police overtime costs and tickets for city staff for this year’s Surrey Regional Economic Summit. Surrey’s sixth-annual summit – held on Feb. 18 – included former prime ministers Julia Gillard (Australia), George Papandreou (Greece) and Ehud Barak (Israel). Surrey has long said the cost of speakers at the yearly event is completely covered through ticket sales and sponsorships. The city won’t disclose the cost of the speakers, nor the amount received by way of sponsorships or ticket sales, citing that those things are within the control of the Pace Group, which organizes the event. However, taxpayers did cover the costs of police overtime for this year’s event, a figure that reached $24,300. There was an additional $5,600 in officer amenities, such as food, portable toilets, etc. The city also paid for six tickets for staff at $499 apiece, for a total of $2,994. The Pace Group gave the city 20 complimentary tickets. That brings the city’s investment in the event to $32,894. i see page 4

Full-scale strike for White Rock workers Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Striking City of White Rock employees ramped up job action Monday, withdrawing services and putting up picket lines at all city worksites. The move is the latest in job action that began May 1 with withdrawal of services at city hall, continued May 5 with an overtime ban and expanded Thursday and Friday when public-works employees walked off the job. The citywide shutdown will continue “until

we get an agreement,” CUPE 402-01 president Mike Guraliuk said Monday. But city manager Dan Bottrill told Peace Arch News the union has shunned city efforts to get talks back on track. “We proposed two days this week,” Bottrill said, noting the mediator put the offer out Friday. “The response was the union declined both of our proposed dates. It’s very disappointing.” Guraliuk disputed the statement. “That is absolutely false,” he said from outside city hall. “We’ve heard nothing.”

“The city manager, all he has to do is step outside and say, let’s meet.” Thursday’s rotating job action affected garbage and recycling collection, maintenance of the sewer system, street cleaning and parks and road maintenance, with a picket line outside the city’s Keil Street facility starting at 6 a.m. Monday, all five city facilities – city hall, the works yard, Centennial Arena, Kent Street Activity Centre and White Rock Community Centre – were affected. Only city hall remained open. i see page 2

Garbage concerns residents i from page 1 The union issued 72-hour strike notice on April 28, after mediated bargaining did not bring the two sides to an agreement. Bottrill said last week that while the job action is manageable, non-unionized employees would not fill the gap in garbage, green waste and recycling collection. Monday, he reiterated that as long as staff are striking, garbage and recycling will not be picked up. Residents and businesses have the option to take their waste to the landfill, he said. It is not an option that residents who have contacted PAN are impressed with. “The City of White Rock is not being responsible and leaving the garbage and recycling problem to the homeowners who are paying for the services,” Janet McCracken writes in an email. A Victoria Avenue resident who wouldn’t give his name predicted few, if any, would go the landfill route, given the added cost. “Our cans are full, they’re still sitting on the street,” he said. Bottrill said residents can get the latest information about impacts of the job action on the city’s website (www.whiterockcity.ca). In addition to city hall remaining open, Bot-

trill said, bylaw enforcement is taking place. Guraliuk said the citywide action is hoped to send a strong message to White Rock Mayor Wayne Baldwin and city council about returning to the bargaining table. Outside the public works yard Thursday, Guraliuk said the employees are prepared to continue with job action “as long as it takes.” While union officials had initially promised to give 24-hours’ notice of job action, Bottrill said that promise was broken when public-works employees walked off the job Thursday. Notice was given at 2:35 p.m. Wednesday, he said. “We’re a little disappointed that the union didn’t honour their promise,” he said. Guraliuk, however, said the union is “not bound” to give a full-day’s notice. In response to comments made to PAN by Baldwin last week about the impending strike, Guraliuk said the mayor is “out of touch with the needs of his frontline employees.” “The leadership should not be calling our issues trivial,” he said. “If our issues are so trivial, how come we’re here?” Key issues for the union include the need for protection for members who become seriously ill and clear hours of work.

Trestle issue complex: Charles i from page 1 Charles said BNSF walked away from talks last month. “We’re not in consultation at the moment, we are hoping to engage in consultation with those departments,” she said. “The bridge is located on Semiahmoo First Nation land and before (BNSF) can do anything to those lands, they need to consult, accommodate and reconcile with Semiahmoo First Nation.” Charles said the situation is difficult to

White Rock

explain and, without the history behind it, easily misunderstood – including by media. That lack of understanding has made the band “not look in a good favour,” she said, referring to previous PAN articles that noted efforts to reach the band for comment had been unsuccessful. “It’s band business and it’s complex.” Ultimately, Charles said, authority to do any work must come from Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada, provided the band agrees.

Three men charged but police suspect larger group still targeting high-end residences

No end in sight to property-crime spree Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Surrey Mounties are warning the public about a wave of property crime, spearheaded by a group believed to be responsible for theft throughout Metro Vancouver. It’s thought that the thefts will continue even after three arrests in Surrey in March. Police say the suspects are believed to be part of a larger group that is responsible for multiple residential break-and-enters, in which high-end residences that are believed to contain expensive jewelry and currency are targeted. In addition, the group conducts a number of checks to ensure the homes are unoccupied prior to attempting a break-in, police say. “Our investigators have been very active monitoring individuals believed to be associated with this group and will continue to do so,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet. “Due to the prolific nature of these crimes, however, we are reminding residents to be extra vigilant in securing their homes and properties. This is also the time of year

where we usually see a rise in residential thefts as people leave more windows and garage doors open. As a result, we urge residents to review their home safety measures to reduce their chances of becoming a victim.” Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP’s Property Crime Target Team at 604-599-0502 or Crime

Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS if they wish to remain anonymous. Thefts under $5,000 can also be reported online through the Surrey RCMP website. On March 20, investigators arrested three suspects following a series of residential break-and-enters in Surrey. They are Surrey’s Stanley Calvin Price, 33, Wyatt James William, 28, of Kamloops, and Glen Allan

Nelson, 31, of Surrey. Price and William are charged with four counts of break-and-enter with intent to commit an offence, while Nelson faces three counts of the same charge. For more information on protecting property, visit the ‘protecting yourself ’ section of the BC RCMP website, www.bc.rcmp-grc. gc.ca

RCMP detachment becomes stolen-cache dispenser From artwork to electronics, tools, sports equipment, memorabilia, jewelry, clothing and even bottles of alcohol, the Langley RCMP found so much stolen property at a Surrey residence that they had to rent a three-ton truck to haul it all away. Now, they’d like to return the unclaimed items to their rightful owners. The mountain of stolen property was recovered during the execution of a search warrant on March 16 in the 5500-block of 129 Street. The home’s only occupant, a woman, was arrested during the search for outstanding warrants.

Officers from Langley’s Street Enforcement Unit spent the entire day filling the rental truck, as well as two additional vehicles. Police also recovered a 2002 Porsche Boxster (since returned to its owner) which had been stolen during a break-and-enter in Surrey over the Valentine’s Day weekend. In all, more than 160 items were seized. Police believe most was taken during break-and-enters in Surrey and Langley from November to March.

Good Samaritans rushed to help a woman after her car veered into a ditch on 24 Avenue in South Surrey and burst into flames.

Woman trapped in burning car

Crash victim wants to thank rescuers Sarah Massah Staff Reporter

The quick work of three Good Samaritans helped save the life of a woman after her car veered into a South Surrey ditch and burst into flames Wednesday evening. Mark Heath, 62, said he was driving eastbound on 24 Avenue near 142 Street around 6 p.m. when he saw a white Volkswagen on fire and two men, ❝You’re thinking, Mike Stoneburgh maybe this thing is and Chris Griffith, going to explode…❞ struggling to pull the driver out. Mark Heath The South Surrey man – who noted that at 275 pounds, he believed he could provide the extra pull to get the driver out – rushed into the ditch to help.

“I was up to my waist in mud,” Heath recalled. “I jumped in and went over and got my arms around her shoulders and we were able to release her foot from whatever it was stuck on and get her out.” Once the three men were able to get her to the street, Heath retrieved a blanket from his

truck to keep her warm. “Her eyes were open and she was blinking, but she wasn’t able to talk,” Heath said, noting that he believed she may have suffered a medical emergency. While waiting for emergency crews, Heath grabbed two fire extinguishers from a passing van and worked to douse the blazing car. “You just do it,” he said. “You’re thinking, maybe this thing is going to explode, so we better get the hell out of here, so that’s what we did, get her out as quick as we could.” Surrey RCMP confirmed Friday that the woman was taken to hospital following the accident and was experiencing back pain. She did not wish to make her name public but told police she would like to eventually meet – and thank – her rescuers.

A man found guilty two years ago of having two semi-automatic guns concealed in the back seat of a car in South Surrey has lost an appeal of his conviction. Saekwan Lee was convicted in Surrey Provincial Court in 2012 of two counts of possessing a prohibited weapon without a licence. Lee appealed his conviction on the grounds that the trial judge misinterpreted the evidence. It was January 2009 when police were called to 16 Avenue and 128 Street in response to a complaint about a loud noise and two vehicles in the area of the Ocean Park Shopping Centre. Because both vehicles left abruptly, an RCMP officer followed and attempted to pull them over. While one sped off, a red Ford Explorer stopped. With a strong marijuana smell coming from the vehicle, the officer asked the driver and Lee (the passenger) to exit. The Explorer was then searched and a plastic bag was found partially under the back seat. Inside were two semiautomatic pistols, both with their serial numbers ground off. Through forensics, seven identifiable fingerprints were found, five of which were Lee’s. Three B.C. Appeal Court justices agreed with the trial judge that the evidence was sufficient. “The bag had a number of the appellant’s fingerprints on it,” wrote Justice Richard Goepel in his April 24 decision. “In my view, it cannot be said that the conviction is unreasonable and not supported by the evidence.”

Windsor Square Dental Centre

Lease agreement imminent The province is set to ink a deal with the City of Surrey for the lease of its former city hall. On Monday night, Surrey council was expected to consider the lease of 45,000 square feet of the 14245 56 Ave. hall to the B.C. Ministry of Justice for use by Crown counsel and community corrections (probation offices). A leasing agent with Colliers International told Black Press

in February it was planning to lease 45,000 square feet, which is expected to generate about $550,000 annually for the city. The old hall became available when Surrey moved to a new $100-million facility in North Surrey in February. The former hall has been vacant since. Crown counsel is expected to take over the main floor of the old hall, which used to be the

The leasing to the province leaves another 87,000 square feet of the building still vacant, including 21,000 square feet in the west tower, 56,000 square feet in the south tower and 10,000 square feet in the north annex. Potential users being considered include universities, institutes, agencies and foundations. – Kevin Diakiw

He believes the challenges of providing the best education for B.C.’s children – on a limited provincial budget – remain unchanged. But Education Minister Peter Fassbender says he’s “an eternal optimist” who believes that improvements are possible – even with the current job action and evident philosophic rifts – given the underlying commitment of teachers, support staff and school boards around the province. At an informal media lunch at his constituency office Friday, the Surrey-Fleetwood MLA reflected on a year in office, and almost a year in his portfolio. Fresh from an earlier meeting with Surrey school trustees and other area MLAs to discuss local needs, Fassbender said he is committed to being an advocate for schools in his home riding, but it’s a responsibility that must be tempered by his oversight of the education system provincewide. Inevitably, the BCTF’s current ‘Stage 1’ job action by teachers, launched April 23, in which teachers are not providing supervision of students outside the classroom, figured in his lookback over the year. Teachers contracts expired last June and BCTF president Jim Iker has said the withdrawal of “non-essential services” is part of an escalating job action in response to slow negotiation over wages – the union claims its members earn lower salaries compared with teachers in other provinces – and the need for smaller class sizes. Fassbender said he sees the current action as “disruptive” for families, and he admitted the government is currently “pushing back” against BCTF wage demands he said would see a 20 per cent increase over three years. “The ‘ask’ the BCTF has put on the table is out of step with every public sector union we’re settled with,” he said. “We’ve already put an offer on the table, but we have not seen a commensurate response – we’re kind of at an impasse.” Doug Charles, manager and the friendly Fassbender said he has tried to build a better relastaff at Penguin Meats, present tionship between the education ministry and teachers since being appointed of White Rock with a $250 Gift Certificate. minister last June. “We’re really trying to Milke was the lucky winner take the negativity out of the relationship – of Penguin Meats Spring Sale Draw. although we’re accused of doing the opposite,” he said. “I absolutely respect the importance of education to the future of the community and the nation, and I respect the role of teachers, I 1554 JOHNSTON RD.

Canada needs foreign workers

T

he federal government’s temporary foreign-worker program is unfair to both Canadian and foreign workers. Though it’s getting attention now, this controversy is not a new one – it has been an ongoing issue for more than two years. And it reared its head again last month when it was revealed that three Victoria fast-food restaurants had hired foreign workers in place of Canadians. As a result, Employment Minister Jason Kenney suspended the food industry’s access to the program, pending a review, amid allegations of rule breaking. It’s easy to suggest the federal government should let free-market forces of supply and demand address shortfalls in the labour market. The problem is, Canada doesn’t have enough workers, and the situation is only going to get worse without opening the doors to more immigrants. At the moment, one in six Canadian employers is reporting a “shortage of un/ semi-skilled labour” as a major business problem; nearly a third are reporting “shortage of skilled labour.” Unemployment is near or below what is conventionally considered “zero” in every province west of Ontario (and that’s after the foreign workers have raised those unemployment rates a percentage point, as one recent study suggests). The simplistic solution to the problem is to raise the minimum wage enough to encourage Canadians to line up and take those jobs, but that won’t wash well with business owners, nor will it help in the longterm. It is not an effective solution for now, nor the future. As Canadians age – watch out, the Baby Boomers are beginning to retire – workers and tax dollars will be needed more than ever to keep the country afloat. Those who say, defiantly, that “Canadian jobs are for Canadians” may be right in theory, but what if there aren’t enough Canadians to fill those jobs – or want those jobs at all? Foreign workers may well be the only answer.

We have to bring in Mexican guest workers to get vegetable and fruit crops off in the Fraser Valley and Okanagan. For a five-month growing season in the bush outside Fort St. John? This is a classic example of the religious fervor that replaces reason among the southern faithful of the ALR. And how is the status quo working? Summerland council just voted to swap 80 hectares of flat farmland for 90 hectares further away in the Summerland Hills. The town is on restricted lakeshore terrain and the council wants to increase its urban zone, using the community need provisions that are enhanced by the current legislative amendments. This was after a loud demonstration organized with the help of a fake grassroots protest machine called LeadNow, complete with slick signs and website. (LeadNow also helped round up anti-pipeline protesters this past weekend.) The media were fooled as usual, but not Summerland council. LeadNow has moved on to lining up people to flood the Agricultural Land Commission with form letters and petitions against Summerland’s plan. The B.C. Agriculture Council, whose board first supported and then objected to the ALR amendments, has clarified its objections. It wants flexibility for secondary uses extended to the prime farmland zones of the Okanagan, Fraser Valley and southern Vancouver Island.

A call to service Editor: Re: Prides of White Rock to disband, May 1. Saddened to hear that the local Lions Club will be disbanding on June 30. As a 40-something who grew up in White Rock, I remember attending numerous pancake breakfasts and polar bear swims as a child, where I learned what a hot toddy was. My father was a member and it seemed as much about the social aspect not just the service. Made me realize there are fewer service clubs around these days where face-to-face interactions are required. Come on, business professionals of White Rock. Let’s get together and form a new service club! You can find me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and we could crowd fund the polar bear swim and even attend virtually via Skype or FaceTime. Stuart Libby, White Rock

So few wild places left Editor: Last month, the day before Earth Day, I took my usual walking route down to the beach from North Bluff Road, following Dolphin Street down the hill to the bluff that divides East Beach from West Beach. As I approached Marine Drive, my attention was captured by the spectacularly vibrant red tulips in the private garden at the foot of Dolphin. In the distance, I noticed the sand decorated with those swirling pools so characteristic of low tide on Semiahmoo Bay. My personal gauge of how ‘present’ I am is how long it takes me to notice the level of the tide. I felt the chill of the moist air moving in from the U.S. peninsula across the bay, and I zipped up my jacket. It was only then that I noticed the devastation. Much of the natural habitat beyond the railing on Marine Drive had been removed! The bank was now an ugly brown scar. Previously, the foliage was full of birds seeking refuge and sustenance before or after their flights around the bay. This time of year, the shrubs would hide nests and baby birds. I used to rest on an attractive bench, now also removed, facing the sea. Before long, the birds would start to appear from behind their leafy hideouts. They would perch on the Fido Fountain, now covered, and drink the fresh water. It was a delight for the senses, listening to the chirping and watching their acrobatics. There are so few wild places left in White Rock. These are where the birds live! Why is money being spent to clear the few remaining natural habitats? Will the bank now be shotcreted to keep it stable? When living by water it is important to keep the foreshore

as natural as possible, yet another section of natural foreshore has been destroyed. What an eyesore for both residents and visitors, and what a heartbreak for those of us who love to watch the birds.

One of the great joys for those walking the promenade at the foot of the bluff was looking up and seeing eagles perched in the trees. Those trees are now gone. People lucky enough to live by the

sea can surely enjoy the beauty of their location while also preserving the bird habitat. It’s unfortunate that birds can’t vote. Diane Johnson, White Rock

Newspaper owner David Black held up a jar of bitumen in 2012, when he announced plans for a refinery in Kitimat.

Discord over oil-safety solution Editor: Re: Slightest risk is unacceptable (April 22); Better for B.C., better for all (April 25), columns by David Black. Continued safe marine and pipeline transport of hydrocarbons is in everybody’s interest, so Canadians can realize value for resources and oil producers can continue to deliver jobs and economic benefits. No one wants a spill of any product at any time. The performance track record over the past 50 years is good, but even still, work is ongoing to improve prevention and ensure producers, transportation companies and spill-responders have the best information available to manage products safely and make the best plans possible for response, containment and cleanup in the event of an incident. The columns by David Black (owner of Black Press, Peace Arch News’ parent company) incorrectly suggested the Canadian oil industry is not interested in the proposed refinery project and that transporting diluted bitumen is more risky than transporting other types of oil because of its chemical properties. Fact is, oil producers are seeking increased access to existing and new markets – in Canada, the U.S. and internationally – to satisfy market demand for increasing Canadian oil production. All options to achieve that goal are worthy of study. And diluted bitumen – oil sands bitumen diluted with natural gas liquids that allow it to flow – is no more dangerous than other types of crude oil. Chemically, there’s nothing about diluted bitumen the transportation system cannot be prepared to manage. Whether it moves by pipelines or tankers, diluted bitumen meets the same specifications and behaves the same as other crude oils. Oil floats on water if it has an API gravity above 10 degrees. Diluted bitumen has an API gravity of 20-22 degrees. Any type of oil spilled in water eventually “weathers” and can be driven below the surface by waves or currents. Diluted bitumen behaves the same way. There have been several scientific studies on diluted bitumen. This year, the federal government released a research study that demonstrated diluted bitumen floats on salt water – even after evaporation and exposure to light. The study was commissioned by Environment Canada, Fisheries and Oceans Canada and Natural Resources Canada as part of the government’s plan to implement a world-class prevention, preparedness and response regime for marine transportation. Results will be used to inform spill responders and help guide research. Our industry is focused on responsible development of Canada’s resources. We welcome transparency on

our safety and environmental performance, based on sound science. As producers, we transport oil with care and attention at all times. We expect all transportation providers to deliver safe services in a responsible manner. Greg Stringham, Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, Calgary ••• David Black responds: In his response, Greg Stringham makes assertions about the behavior of diluted bitumen (dilbit) in salt water that are at best half-truths. He states dilbit floats on salt water and is no more dangerous at sea than other types of oil. That is wrong. It is more dangerous at sea, and infinitely more so than refined fuels like diesel and gasoline. What Stringham doesn’t mention is the same report from Environment Canada goes on to say that dilbit sinks in seawater when there is sediment present. Another study by a top U.S. environmental chemist, Jeff Short, says the same thing. It was filed by the Gitxaala Nation to the National Energy Board in March 2013, so Stringham is well aware of it. That study says animal and plant matter, like plankton, as well as sediment, cause the dilbit to sink. Our entire coast has sediment and plankton in abundance. Our rivers are glacial and full of silt. Plankton is omnipresent, which is why the whales are here, and shallow seas like Hecate Strait throw up huge amounts of sediment from the bottom in storms. Dilbit will sink in our waters if there is a spill and it will harden up like caulking material on beaches and the intertidal zone. The intertidal zone includes large mud flats in the midcoast because the tidal range is more than 20 feet there. How would we ever get them clean again? Stringham also says our Canadian oil industry is interested in the Kitimat-refinery idea. That is news to me. I have talked to all the companies and there is no interest whatsoever. That is why I am spearheading the project. It will keep dilbit out of tankers and provide an enormous value-add for BC. Canada’s oil industry needs a west coast pipeline. Coastal First Nations, the Yinka Dene First Nations, Prince Rupert, Kitimat, Terrace, Smithers, the provincial and federal NDP, the federal Liberals, the provincial and federal Green Party, many blue-collar unions and the majority of folks in B.C. are against Northern Gateway’s idea of putting dilbit in tankers. A refinery is economically viable. Why is it so hard for our oil industry to see that the way forward is to build a green refinery which will cut greenhouse gases by 50 per cent, create thousands of jobs, generate billions of new annual taxes, and gain acceptance for a safe pipeline?

Peace bond appeal A White Rock man who appealed a Surrey court decision that resulted in a peace bond against him says he is not letting a recent dismissal of the proceedings in Supreme Court sway his efforts to prove his rights were violated. Roderick Louis told Peace Arch News he filed an application with the B.C. Court of Appeal on April 23 to challenge both last year’s provincial-court proceedings and last month’s B.C. Supreme Court ruling. In July 2013, Judge Ann Rounthwaite imposed a peace bond on Louis, 50, following a charge of “fear of injury/damage by another person.” The charge stemmed from a 2011 incident in which another resident of Louis’s Martin Drive building alleged she was followed and filmed to the point she feared for her personal safety. Rounthwaite concluded the complainant had “reasonable grounds to fear” her neighbour. Following a hearing April 4 in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster, Justice Lance Bernard dismissed a trio of appeal applications – including one asking for a new trial – that were filed by Louis in connection with the provincialcourt proceedings. According to the BCCA application, Louis is seeking to appeal both rulings. He submits that his rights as a self-represented defendant were “unjustifiably infringed” at the provincial-court level, in part by the refusal of the prosecutor “to have any contact with me.” It compromised Louis’s ability to prepare for the hearing and fully defend himself against the allegations, the document states. Louis also claims the Supreme Court erred on points including finding that the provincial court did not err in ruling he could not “introduce evidence of motivations for dishonesty among the complainant and other Crown witnesses”; and, in finding the provincial court did not err in imposing conditions that “go far beyond what the(findings) imply is required for the safety of the complainant.” – Tracy Holmes

Cloverdale woman shares experience with B.C. Guide Dog Services

Guide dogs provide paws-itive impact Jennifer Lang

M Black Press

onica Nelson is a long-time Cloverdale resident whose active schedule would keep anyone

hopping. Ash (Ashlar) is a 22-month-old yellow lab – a sweetheart and kisser who makes his move when Nelson bends down to tie her shoes. “That’s when you get the slobber!� she exclaims. Three weeks ago, they were strangers. Last week, they graduated as a team – the 106th match by B.C. Guide Dog Services in Ladner. “He’s just an excellent little worker and just raring to go,� Nelson smiles proudly, nodding towards Ash, lying quietly at her feet. The pair spent 50 hours training in Cloverdale under the guidance of Nick Toni, a veteran mobility instructor and former RAF police dog handler with 21-plus years in the field. When Nelson got her first guide dog in 1998, she could still see the lines of a crosswalk and discern the contrast of grass and sidewalk. She has RP, or retinitis pigmentosa, which leads to progressive loss of vision. Diagnosed in her 20s, she gradually lost her sight. A decade and a half ago, she was receiving mobility training when she was identified as a candidate for a guide dog. To qualify, Nelson had to be mobile – able to get around on her own, using a cane – but her vision couldn’t be too good, otherwise she’d lead around any dog. After taking a successful “test drive� with a guide dog, she was put on a waiting list. A busy wife and mom – her sons were then aged eight and 10 – Nelson waited a year for a match. She and Anya, a yellow lab/golden cross, became team number three for B.C. Guide Dog Services, a charity founded in 1996 that provides dogs at no cost to the recipient. The group runs breeding, puppy raising and training programs, and relies on donors for funding. The dogs reach retirement when they’re about 10, after eight years of service. “That’s the best-case scenario,� Nelson says. Quinn, her second dog, is 10. Enter Ash. The newbie, quiet and relaxed, is an inert puddle of unstressed warmth on the floor until duty calls. “That’s one of the traits they look for,� she says. “They don’t want an overly-aggressive or active dog, because you’re in and out with people, in stores and buildings, on transit – they gotta be mellow.� Training a new puppy takes time. “They live with a first family for a year-

The pair recently wrapped up a three-week training session. and-a-half, where they get their social training,� Nelson says. “Then they get their formal training. That’s when the trainer takes over.� About 75 per cent will have what it takes

to be a guide dog. The rest are placed as pets in permanent homes or find careers assisting people with autism. Toni estimates between 15 and 20 trained dogs a year by B.C. Guide Dogs meet the

qualifying standard. Dogs are matched with a someone from the waiting list – presently closed due to the demand. “There are approximately 111,000 visually impaired people in British Columbia alone,� Toni says. “A good majority of those could use or work with a guide dog. But we just can’t.� He notes the charity is raising funds to build a breeding centre in Ladner to help close that gap. “People like Monica, who have had dogs before, and understand how it changes their life and rely on it, they must be our priorities,� says Toni. “When their dogs retire, they must be our priorities to re-train.� Finding the right match is essential. “You have to get the right dog who can cope with the routine and the variables. Ashlar may be very quiet, lying down at the moment, but when he gets into busy areas, where there’s a lot to do, that’s when he comes into his own,� Toni says. Ash will have his work cut out for him with Nelson. Her boys now married and out of the house, she volunteers at her church, Zion Lutheran, and helps out at the Surrey Food Bank depot there every other week. And, she commutes on foot across busy 176 Street at 60 Avenue. She takes the 320 bus from Cloverdale to her book club in Surrey Centre and rides the SkyTrain to Vancouver, where she volunteers for the CNIB. She also belongs to several other support groups. Add shopping trips to stores and malls and you get the picture. The training trio has been learning all of Nelson’s routes, walking the streets of Cloverdale and taking transit all over, with Nelson gradually taking control of the harness from Toni, while Ash learns to follow a new boss. “Up to this point, he’s taken his cues from Nick,� says Nelson. “It’s different when I hold the harness. He has to learn to trust me. I have to learn to trust him, so we work together.� From finding escalators to locating the button controlling the crosswalk, Ash has performed “absolutely great� says Toni. Nelson has had to re-learn instructions and cues, so they’re “by the book� – teams inevitably customize the way they communicate. “The pair of them have just matched perfectly,� Toni beams. Toni has worked with about 140 qualified guide dog teams since he began in 1998. “We live in such a complicated environment now,� he says. i see page 12

CROSSWORD

Guide dogs ‘part of family’ i from page 11 “We have busier lifestyles; traffic conditions, vehicles have changed. With hybrid cars, there’s no engine noise. They can be a real hazard – you can’t hear them. Things are just more complicated generally, not just for visually impaired people.” Graduation day (April 29) wasn’t a formal ceremony – it was a final run-through for dog and handler checking all the skills they’ll need to have mastered before the team is signed off, from climbing stairs to crossing intersections on a predetermined walk. Only then could Nelson pick up Ash’s harness on her own. The days of training behind them, Nelson and Ash will be a team. She and Quinn, a black lab/golden cross, were team number 49. “Quinn, I mean, he’s part of the family,” she says of her retired sidekick. “You think: it’s hard shifting loyalties, because I have to, I have to bond with the new dog. But there’s still that bond to the old dog. You can’t just cut ties.” Fortunately, Quinn isn’t going anywhere – he’ll be a full-time family pet, the same as Ash when the harness comes off. Left at home while the others set off to train each morning, he’s had three weeks to adjust. “Up to this point, every time I took the harness up, it was his job,” says Nelson. “It’s thrown him a curve ball: ‘Aww? How come you’re going out with the other dog? The first day, he was wondering what was going on.” Quinn, she acknowledges, was

The two dogs, both males, have become good friends. And Ash is already part of the family. “It’s funny, when I call one, they both come,” says Nelson. “But they both get their loving – I’ve got two arms. “I’ll have one under each arm.”

What Life Insurance Really Means… A

inslie Winter has been our life insurance advisor for the past 16 years. You always hope that you never have to actually use your life insurance. It is there ‘just in case’. My world fell apart when my husband suddenly passed away with cancer in 2007. He was too young and the cancer came on quickly. My husband left me and our 4 school aged children behind. Ainslie was there for me and my family. She helped me deal with the Insurance Company. Ainslie was kind, patient and caring. She brought me the insurance money and helped me deal with it. The insurance money helped by letting me stay home from work as long as I needed to be with my children. Without this life insurance money our lives would be very different. I thank Ainslie for taking the time over the years to help my husband and I understand the importance of life insurance. – D. McNaught, Cloverdale

Bradley, Spencer honoured by MML

Men’s, women’s Superweek victors to be paid equal

More cash for Tour winners

Rick Kupchuk Black Press

After helping their team complete its most successful season ever, two members of the Valley West Hawks have been honoured with postseason awards. Head coach Tom Spencer was named the BC Hockey Major Midget League (MML) Coach of the Year, while centre Matt Bradley was named a firstteam all-star. Spencer has been behind the bench of the Hawks for the past Matt Bradley three seasons, all-star after serving as assistant coach for the Fraser Valley Bruins. He has also been involved with the Langley Minor Hockey Association and the BC Hockey Male High Performance program. He is leaving the Hawks next season to join the coaching staff of the BC Hockey League’s Surrey Eagles, where he’ll serve as an assistant coach under Peter Schaefer. He led the Hawks to a thirdplace finish in the MML regular season. Their 27-11-2 (won-losttied) record set a team record for most wins in a season and matched the previous best for total points. Valley West went on to defeat the Cariboo Cougars in the quarterfinal round of the MML playoffs before losing in the semifinal to the Okanagan Rockets. Bradley, from the Surrey Minor Hockey Association, led the Hawks in scoring with 39 goals and 32 assists during the regular i see page 16

More prize money and an equal payout to male and female races is coming to BC Superweek. Prize money for the nine-race series, which includes the Tour de White Rock from July 11-13, has been increased by $10,000 to a total of $120,000. And for the first time, money paid to the top three cyclists in women’s competition and the top three in the men will be the same. BC Superweek runs from July 4-13, and is made up of the Tour de Delta (July 4-6), UBC Grand Prix (July 8), Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix (July 9), Giro di Burnaby (July 10) and the Tour de White Rock. “Inequality between men’s and women’s cycling is a hot button issue these days,” said Lex Albrecht of Montreal, a member of the TWENTY16 Pro Cycling Team and a winner in Delta and White Rock last summer. “In most cases, the gap between prize money offered to men and women is exceptionally, and unjustly significant.” Albrecht is the defending women’s champion of the MK Delta Criterium and the Tour de White Rock. She finished first in the Homelife Realty Hill Climb and second in the Road Race at the Tour de White Rock in 2013. BC Superweek organizers say the decision to offer equal prize money to both men and women is to assist in elevating the sport. “BC Superweek organizers have stepped up to offer equal prize money to the top three finishers of both fields, showing their support for gender equality - which is important not only in professional bike racing, but in all aspects of life,” Albrecht said. “I’m proud to see such a great event like this at home in Canada.” “Equality in the sport is very important for us to foster,” said BC Superweek race director Mark Ernsting. “We couldn’t ignore the increase in women’s participation and quality of performance over the last two seasons – and equal prize money to the top three men’s and women’s podium finishers is a great step to continue to recognize the growth of women’s cycling.”

Bradley had 13 playoff points i from page 15 season to finish fourth overall in the MML. He added 13 points in five playoff games. Drafted by the Medicine Hat Tigers of the Western Hockey League in the 2012 WHL Bantam Draft, Bradley played eight games this past season as an affiliate player of the B.C. Hockey League’s Surrey Eagles. The Hawks have been comprised of players from the Langley,

Semiahmoo, Surrey and Cloverdale Minor Hockey Associations (MHA) since the league was launched 10 years ago, but that will change. Effective the 2014-’15 season, players in the Langley MHA must try out for the Fraser Valley Thunderbirds.

Strides Pedorthics’ owners, Michael Gorman and his wife Sandra, have both had experience with a foot condition called Plantar Fasciitis. Michael has treated thousands of clients, and Sandra has suffered with this painful injury. The plantar fascia is a broad, thin band of ligament-like tissue that originates at the heel and fans forward towards the toes. It supports and maintains the arch of the foot and acts like a spring. Causes of Plantar Fasciitis can be from increased physical activity, being overweight, ill-fitting shoes, or biomechanical problems. Thus, the plantar fascia can become inflamed or even be torn. Left untreated, it

Plantar Fasciitis – Don’t Ignore the Pain! can form scar tissue and may become chronic. Sandra had classic Plantar Fasciitis symptoms. For the first few steps of the morning, she was in extreme pain in her heels and arches which lessened after walking and then re-occurred after resting. She ignored it for some time until the pain began to make her feel faint. She had also developed heel spurs, a bony growth on the bottom of the heel, which is another symptom of Plantar Fasciitis. There are various treatments for Plantar Fasciitis such as physiotherapy, custom foot orthotics, acupuncture, or night splints. At Strides, clients are treated with foot orthotics, or off the shelf arch supports and/or appropriate footwear. Strides’ pedorthists also recommend stretching and icing. For Sandra’s treatment, she spent six months in foot orthotics, specially selected footwear and stretched 8-10 times a day. During that time, she never went barefoot. Since then she wears supportive shoes and sandals. She rarely goes barefoot and wears Birkenstock and Finn Comfort sandals at home. Strides Pedorthics is entering its 17th year of serving the people of the Semiahmoo Peninsula and beyond. If you are experiencing foot –related pain, please come and visit us.

OBITUARIES ADAMS, Marion Magdelene Freda

It is with sadness that the family of Marion Adams, widow of the late Patrick Adams, announce her death on Tuesday, April 22, 2014, after a brief illness. She was living at Chartwell Crescent Gardens in Surrey, B.C. Marion was a retired teacher and always had a great connection with children, particularly, with her beloved and only grandchild, Josh. She was an avid competitor and excelled at many sports including softball, curling and gymnastics. She was a Life Master bridge player but could win at any card game. Marion is survived by her daughters, Robin Adams (Grant Kruse) South Surrey BC; Laurel McKinney (John McKinney) Spokane, WA; her grandson Josh Kruse, Toronto ON; her sister Irene Smith, Comox BC & by many nephews and nieces.
