Burnaby city hall says Kinder Morgan’s application to expand the Trans Mountain pipeline is incomplete. And now it wants the National Energy Board (NEB) to reject it for just that reason. Kinder Morgan submitted its 15,000page application to the NEB on Dec. 16. It proposes almost tripling capacity of its pipeline, which stretches from Edmonton to Burnaby. That would allow it to increase exports of oil sands bitumen to overseas markets by tanker ships coming in and out of Burrard Inlet. In a letter to the NEB, Gregory McDade, Burnaby’s legal counsel, said the application doesn’t adequately address the potential conflict between the pipeline project and existing infrastructure along the proposed route, such as sewer and water lines. It also doesn’t adequately address potential environmental impacts or emergencies, said McDade. see KINDER MORgAN, A5

RCMP warn of tax scam

Theresa Pantano, left, lists her specials on a hand-written blackboard posted at her new Oui Paris café in Burnaby Heights. To create an authentic ambiance, most of the signage is in French and she also refinished much of the furniture and decor herself.

Burnaby RCMP is warning the public of a telemarketing scam in which the caller claims to be an officer with the RCMP or another federal agency. Burnaby Mounties have taken several calls from people reporting they’ve received such calls from a male who is able to address the victim by their full name. The caller identifies himself as an official calling about a federal matter. The victim is told they owe a portion of their taxes and that they are not to directly contact the government. The caller says he could help for a fee and if victims refuse to pay they will be arrested and jailed. The RCMP never solicits people for money by phone. Anyone who receives such a call should hang up. Victims of fraud are asked to contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501, visit http://www.antifraudcentre.ca or call the RCMP.

Fred, meanwhile, needs dental surgery to clean and extract rotting teeth. Otherwise, their temperament and moods are good, and the two dogs seem happy. “They’re very outgoing, they love to play, they love being with people.” The pair have also been inseparable, which is why the SPCA hopes to find a new home where they can live together. “The first night they were already curled up together sleeping on the same bed … We figured out right away they’d probably been together for quite some time. We don’t want to separate them now.” Voutilainen said people abandon pets at SPCA shelters happens from time to time. But the preference is that the animals be surrendered when they can no longer be cared for. That way, the previous owner can provide information on health or other issues to help the SPCA in addressing them and finding the pets a new home, he said. The fee to surrender an animal is $75 for a cat and $100 for a dog, but SPCA makes accommodations for people who can’t afford it. To contribute to medical care for Fred, Ethel and the other animals, visit http://bit.ly/1j12rOY or in person at 3202 Norland Ave., Burnaby.

A bit of Paris lands in Heights Mario Bartel

It costs about $1,200 to fly from Vancouver to Paris. Soon you’ll be able to get there for about the price of a macaron. For seven months, Theresa Pantano has been converting the old Adele Rae Florist shop on Hastings Street into a Parisien café. It looks as if it was plucked from Rue St. Germain and plopped into Burnaby Heights. Next week is the soft opening of her Oui Paris Café Couture. Until then, Pantano is busy arranging inspections and finalizing permits. She’s attending to dozens of details, from

ensuring bathroom mirrors are just the right height to writing the specials on blackboards. No item is too small to escape Pantano’s desire to create a completely immersive Parisien café experience. French accordion music plays softly on the stereo, signs for the bathrooms are in French, even her prices are in Euros. But customers won’t have to worry about calculating the exchange; she’s just swapped the dollar symbol for the distinctive Euro “€.” Amazingly, Pantano has never been to Paris. The café is the culmination of years working in the hospitality industry,

along with eight as an interior designer for IKEA. She’ll run it with her son, Enzo, and her sister, Laura Grant. Pantano says she wanted to create a place where people could meet and talk in person rather than using cell phones or laptops. And, she says, “who doesn’t want to go to Paris?” Pantano studied old photographs and watched French movies over and over to get a feel for the Parisien café look and ambiance. She mined local thrift shops and building material salvagers for furniture, fixtures and decor. Please see parIsIen, a8

Nagar Kirtan parade returns Saturday

Drugs, money in North Burnaby seizure

A number of roads in Burnaby’s Kingsway Imperial area will be closed on Saturday for the Nagar Kirtan parade. Gilley Avenue, from Kingsway to Rumble, will be closed to traffic from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Rumble from Gilley to Royal Oak will be closed from noon to 2:30 p.m. Royal Oak from Rumble to Imperial will be closed from 1:30 to 3 p.m. Imperial, from Royal Oak to Macpherson, from 2 to 4 p.m. The parade then turns right on Macpherson, MARIO BARTEL/NEWSLEADER FILE A procession carries the Holy Book to the head of the Nagar Kirtan which will be closed between parade at the Shri Guru Ravidass Sabha temple in South Burnaby. Imperial and Beresford from

A large quantity of drugs, money and ammunition was seized Wednesday from a North Burnaby home, according to the Vancouver Police Department. The seizure was part of an investigation into a group of drug traffickers that has spanned from Vancouver to Surrey, Chilliwack and Abbotsford, say VPD. Dubbed Project Trio, it was aimed at disrupting the supply of drugs coming into the southeast area of Vancouver. Those involved in the group are known to be violent and involved in gang activity. The investigation led to officers executing a search warrant on a North Burnaby home on March 12. Items seized included digital scales, packaging material, several boxes of 9mm ammunition, about six pounds of marijuana, 14 ounces of heroin, a quarter kilo of cocaine, 20 oxy 80s and about $5,000 in cash. The investigation is ongoing and charges are expected, VPD said.

2:30 to 4:30 p.m. The parade, which is hosted by the Shri Guru Ravidass Sabha, is a colourful procession that transports Sikhism’s holy scripture, the Guru Granth Sahib, through the community, accompanied by marchers singing devotional hymns. The route also features a number of stops where volunteers serve traditional Indian snacks and food. Nagar Kirtan is traditionally held during Vaisakhi, which is celebrated in the Sikh community to commemorate the establishment of the Khalsa.

ICBC invests in local roads

Implant Information Night in 2014 | April 2nd or 3rd at 6pm | #402 - 4603 Kingsway, Burnaby Please call to book your complimentary seat

ICBC invested almost $155,000 into projects to improve the safety of roads in Burnaby last year. The eight Burnaby projects include $51,400 toward widening the intersection of Kensington Avenue and Canada Way to allow for dual left- and right-turn lanes and an upgrade to the pedestrian crosswalk at Kingsway and Olive Avenue ($35,000). Two projects each got $10,000: curb extensions for traffic calming at Winston Street and Lozells Avenue and realignment of the intersection with curb bulges and new crosswalks at Cambridge Street and Gamma Avenue. The installation of curb extensions at Glenwood elementary school at Marine Drive and Gilley Avenue, and a new pedestrian crosswalk at Pandora Street and Willingdon Avenue each received $5,000. ICBC also contributed $23,500 toward the upgrading of stop signs at 429 Burnaby locations. The new signs are highly reflective with a clearview font. And it funded $15,000 of the costs of installing curb extensions on Albert Street at Gilmore, and on Willingdon and Gamma avenues. The money is part of the $4.3 million invested in the Lower Mainland in 2013. The funding is through its road improvement program which has provided about $120 million in funding for projects since its launch in 1990. “Everyone benefits from road improvements– from drivers to pedestrians–because safer roads mean fewer crashes, which also translates into lower claim costs,” said John Dickinson, ICBC’s director of road safety.

Nor has it made enough people aware of the proposal. It has “improperly limited its consultation area” despite the large scope of the project. Kinder Morgan is aware of Burnaby’s letter and is currently reviewing it, said Ali Hounsell, spokesperson for the project. Hounsell said many of the questions they’re encountering involve issues that aren’t discussed until the detailed design and engineering stages. For instance, the proposed study corridor has been included but work continues to nail down a specific route. “The route we included in our application was chosen as our best efforts to minimize impacts on the community and reflective of the studies and stakeholder input that we had to that date. But it is not

a final route and it’s normal that it’s not a final route, it’s part of the normal process.” She said she’s not surprised by Burnaby’s letter. “A project of this size and nature, we never expected that everyone would agree with what we’re doing or come with open arms … Ultimately we hope and trust that people will form their opinions based on the facts.” The NEB is expected to decide in the coming weeks whether the application is complete and if it is, who will be granted intervenor status at the hearings. • Kinder Morgan is hosting an open house for Burnaby residents on “Optimization of the Proposed Pipeline Corridor,” on Thursday, April 3, 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Executive Plaza hotel, 405 North Road, Coquitlam.

PHOTO OF THE WEEK: This shot was taken by Carla Evans in January at Westminster Pier Park in New Westminster.

The need to contain growth Last week’s B.C. Supreme Court ruling threatens to destabilize and neutralize a central tenet of municipal planning in B.C. – the need for municipalities to coordinate their growth and goals through regional planning. Langley township had rezoned rural land in defiance of Metro Vancouver’s regional plan without getting a required two-thirds majority vote of the Metro board. The court sided with Langley. The decision is astounding because the Local Government Act spells it all out, saying that each city within a region has to ensure its plans fit with the region’s goals. There are appeal avenues for dissenting cities but it’s clear in the legislation the intent is to persuade cities to get together and create a plan so that growth happens in the most efficient way. All of the above is written in long-standing legislation so the ruling that Metro Vancouver’s regional growth strategy is not enforceable and that Langley township can create a suburb that contradicts the region’s plans is surprising. The court said Metro Vancouver was “micro-managing” Langley township’s affairs by denying the suburb and enforcing its own regional growth plan. This is hardly the case. The regional government was simply trying to enforce one of its key mandates, which is to control growth and ensure it follows the regional plan, adopted by all its member municipalities, including Langley, in 2011. If Metro Vancouver doesn’t have that ability, there will be a constant procession of cities sprawling, creating costly chaos that will be born by the taxpayer. Metro Vancouver could look like Los Angeles. This decision must be quickly and vigourously appealed. —Maple Ridge News

Musings on life after the big win For a few hours Saturday morning, I was a millionaire. I was sitting at my kitchen table, drinking coffee, when I flipped open my laptop and checked Facebook. There, amid pictures of people’s kids, re-posted conspiracy theories and other inane chatter, was the lottery rumour: That the winning ticket for the Lotto Max $50-million jackpot had been sold in Langley – where I live – and had yet to be claimed. Now, I didn’t buy a ticket to last week’s draw, but I knew my brother – who, it turns out, had two tickets – and my dad were frequent ticket-buyers. My first call went to my brother, and he’d already heard the news. “Did you win?” I asked. He hadn’t checked his ticket yet. Refused to, in fact. But that had not deterred him from assuming the money was already his. When I called, he was online, shopping for a boat. “The ticket got sold in Langley. I bought my ticket in Langley, so the odds are pretty good,” he said, matter-of-factly. “Of course I won. Why wouldn’t I?”

Nick Greenizan Forgetting for a second, that even with the city narrowed down, the odds were still thousands, perhaps tens of thousands, to one, I was reminded of a story I once heard about an American man who won one of those massive state lotteries. The story went that he’d been playing for decades, but never had a sniff of victory. When asked why he’d kept playing in the face of such astronomical odds, he replied that the way he saw it, the odds were in fact quite good. “The odds are 50-50,” he said. “I either win, or I don’t.” So it was with that positive thought that I left my brother to his shopping, and called my dad, a much more reasonable man. “You check your ticket?” “No, I can’t do it. I’m too nervous.”

Unbelievable. The lottery gods – or the patron saint of faint hope – had gotten to him, too. And though he wasn’t quite as confident as his youngest son – he had spent his morning making waffles, not deciding which Hawaiian island he planned to buy – he too, remained confident. He promised to share his winnings with me. So, there I sat, in millionaire limbo. I admit, I did let my mind wander a little bit, too. To a life without mortgage payments or the grind of a 9-to-5 job, and to a new life where my biggest decision is deciding which sports car I want to drive that particular day. Usually, the only time I really entertain such ideas is when I go to Las Vegas. The flight south is filled with dreams of hitting a jackpot on a slot machine, or going on a big-money heater at the blackjack table. I have a running joke with my brother where, the day before I leave for Vegas, I tell him to pack a bag just in case, because if I hit it big I’ll send a jet for him. That plane has remained

grounded. So while I waited for confirmation of my family’s new wealth, I decided to take matters into my own hands, and logged into my long-forgotten online poker account. I had received an email a day earlier reminding me I had $5.87 left. Sure, it would take time to turn five bucks into a fortune, but I’ve never been afraid of a little hard work. Less than 15 minutes later, my account was whittled down to a dime, my last game ended when my three Queens lost to a full house. Seconds later, my phone buzzed. A text from my brother. “Didn’t win” was all it said. (Well, it wasn’t all it said, but this is a family newspaper.) Then, half an hour later, my dad called to say his numbers didn’t match, either. And just like that, three dreams were dead. Cancel the yachts. Nick Greenizan is a sports reporter at the Peace Arch News, and unless his luck changes, he will be for a long, long, long time.

COMMENT

My name is Valeriya and I have been working with the NewsLeader for two years. It has been a great first job for me and a wonderful opportunity to get to know my neighborhood better.

Changes to ambulance service make sense Re: New ambulance protocol delaying response: fire chief After reading this article, one has to ask if a critical intervention, (e.g. CPR, clearing an obstructed airway) was completed by the fire department before the arrival of the paramedics on these now downgraded, routine calls. The answer would be no. The new Resource Allocation Plan, once fully implemented, will reduce unnecessary fire response up to 35 per cent. This is to reduce the risk to the public associated with emergency driving (of both services) and reinforces financial responsibility that each of our public services has to the taxpayers on both on the municipal and provincial level. In another article on this topic it has been mentioned that the fire department has found approximately 50 patients were worse off than dispatched for and the ambulance was upgraded from routine to emergency response. Fifty calls out of 80,000 dispatched calls to this day, or 0.0625% of all calls. Each case was investigated by BC Emergency Health Services (BCEHS), and no negative impact regarding the patient’s condition was found. As for the extra training for the firefighters from their present status of First Responder Level 3, (about 42 hours of training) to Emergency Medical Responder, (about 105 hours), I think it’s a good idea but it’s for the Health Minister and various health departments to decide because they all newspaper ad have 4.75” the data for patient outcomes.

Keep in mind the firefighters’ medical training still won’t be anywhere close to the level of training and experience that the paramedics have. We do not need eight responders and three emergency vehicles responding to someone who is vomiting because of the flu, or for someone that feels faint when they stand up, or for someone complaining of back pain. Most people just need assessment by paramedics and some non-time critical interventions provided by the paramedic while en route to the hospital in the ambulance. This is what the Resource Allocation Plan has addressed. Alex Wharrie —online comment burnabynewsleader.com

acting like a Nazi dictator in his actions respecting the Crimea? I’d suggest not. Germany invaded Austria. Mr. Putin’s military bases in Crimea are there by agreement with the Ukrainian Government. Mr. Putin has not invaded, nor conquered the Crimea, he awaited the outcome of the vote expressing the wish to remain as part of the Ukraine, or to re-affiliate as part of Russia. We should remember that the Ukraine only came into existence as a result of the chaos of the First World War and the Russian revolution of 1917. The Crimea only became a part of Ukraine in 1954 when Khrushchev ceded it from Russia. The other seven or eight provinces in the southeastern part of Ukraine had also been Russian for about 500 years before being annexed to the Ukraine. Eighty years later that area is still primarily ethnically Russian with strong sympathies to Russia. Perhaps Mr. Evans should have asked who is the more corrupt, Ms. Tymoshenko or Mr. Yanukovych?

My next vehicle came from a used car wholesaler*. There was nothing wrong with it, but he couldn’t find a dealer who wanted it. I gladly took it off his hands. How hip was I? I had a new source of newer vehicles that would come right to me. “Two-year-old car for sale. No previous accident history reported, only 35,000km on it. Call with offer.” Shortly after, I got a call from a young man. His car had just broken down, and he needed a new one fast. He agreed to meet me at the local construction site where he worked. He was just finishing up his lunch when I arrived. He was wearing his construction uniform and I immediately noticed his tired eyes. I felt bad for the poor fellow, and I was glad that I was selling him a reliable vehicle. He didn’t need another headache on top of everything. I even knocked $500 off the price I wanted. It was a smooth transaction. The guyy looke looked edd hhappy and thanked me immensely ely forr all the help. I beamed back at him. Around 5:00 a.m. the next morning, I got a call. It was the construction ructioon worker, yelling so loudly that I could barely ely uunderstand him. “THEY TOOK IT AWAY,” ” he said over and over again. “REPOSSESSED!” !” I hung up on him and triedd to make sense of the situation. Why would the ld th he car be taken away in the middle of the he night? n Who’s “they”? Liens. Of course. The car ha had ad a lien on it. That’s why it wouldn’t sell ell on a lot. The bank must have seized it due to an unpaid balance. As before, I panicked. I didn’t idnn’t want to get involved in this right now. w. Sure, S I sold him the car, but how was I supposed seed to know it had

a lien on it? I realized the wholesaler* had scammed me! If that fellow had asked for a CarProof history report or even a provincial lien search, I’d be the one screaming. Over the next several hours, I kept letting my phone go to voicemail – I couldn’t bear speaking to the young man. I knew I had to switch phones again. I felt a bit ashamed. But I needed to be selfish about this. At this point, the best thing for me was cash. And lots of it. *Wholesaler – Vehicle sellers may call themselves auto brokers or wholesalers to sound legitimate and cheaper. But if they’re selling to private buyers, they must be licensed as a dealer. Like any curber - an individual posing as a private seller but selling vehicles as a business – wholesalers and brokers offer none of the protection the law provides for purchases from a Vehicle Sales Authority licensed dealer. Walt learned that lesson, sson, but his buyer paid the price.

“They took it away,” he said over and over gain. “REPOSSESSED!” again.

Ford forges ahead on all fronts The Vancouver International Auto Show gets underway next week. Today, the Driveway team looks at the offerings for 2014 from the Big Three domestic manufacturers in papr and online at drivewaycanada.ca. Ford has been on a roll here in Canada; finishing out 2013 as the top selling brand for the fourth consecutive year. There are some very big products coming from Ford over the coming year that will make a big impact on its sales and image, and you will get a peek at some of them at the Vancouver International Auto Show. The first is the biggest introduction of any automaker this year, the all-new 2015 Ford F-150 full-size pickup truck. The F-150 isn’t just the best selling truck in Canada for almost 50 years; it is the overall sales champ, selling more than any other nameplate. Period. Ford isn’t merely introducing an updated model. No, they went to town, developing a entirely new manufacturing process that will revolutionize the full-size truck space. The body of the next F-150 is built of an aluminum alloy mate-

rial that Ford claims is 318kg lighter but stronger than the outgoing model. In addition, the frame is made of thinner, lighter and stronger high-tensile steel that combined with the body, produces the weight savings. This is an industry first, and a revolutionary approach to building trucks. In addition to a lighter body, the engineers have developed two new engines to compliment the existing 3.5L EcoBoost turbocharged V6 model and 5.0L normally aspirated V8 engine. The first is a new 3.5L V6 engine, replacing the outgoing 3.7L model base engine.

The stance of the new Mustang is lower, wider and more muscular. With a lighter truck, a smaller engine can do the work. A smaller 2.7L turbocharged EcoBoost V6 is also going to be introduced with an auto start-stop function that switches off the engine when the truck is sitting still. Official fuel economy ratings have not been released but Ford executives tell me they hope to have best in class gasoline fuel economy. Other enhancements to the F-150 include a new stepladder that integrates into the tailgate. Ford was the first to have this feature but it has been improved for 2015. The rear tailgate also

has a soft-open feature that prevents the tailgate from slamming down, plus a light switch near the back of the truck to eliminate the bed with new LED lights. The second vehicle that will have a big impact of Ford, but more of an image car, is the all-new 2015 Mustang. Interestingly, about 25 percent of all Mustangs are sold here in British Columbia, so this is a big deal for us. The 2015 Mustang is now going to be sold around the world and developed as part of the “One Ford” approach to making cars they can share in every market.

This means the Mustang will be sold, for the first time, with right hand drive for countries like the UK, Australia and Japan. The stance of the new Mustang is lower, wider and more muscular, with the wheels pushed out to provide better stability. The fastback has a steeper rake and a bigger trapezoidal grille has enhanced the shark nose design. Initially the Mustang will be sold as a coupe and convertible with the base and GT trim, the higher performance models will come later. Inside is another clean-sheet

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

Chevy rolls into town with shiny new wheels The model year 2014 is already in full swing for Chevrolet as it rolls its products into the Vancouver International Auto Show. Many of the new and revamped products are already in dealerships so let’s take a look at what’s especially notable for this year.

Cruze Diesel The popular selling compact from Chevrolet, the Cruz, now comes in an even more efficient setup: the Cruze Diesel. While the diesel model was launched last summer, it bears a 2014 designation. Under its hood is a 2.0L turbodiesel that packs in 151 horsepower and 264 lb.-ft torque. Yes, it has that much torque and is most impressive. According to the Chevrolet, it has a 0-96 km/h (60 mph) performance of 8.6 seconds, “which is better than the Volkswagen Jetta TDI automatic and competitive with German diesel cars that dominate the North American market.” In addition to that, it receives an estimated fuel consumption of 4.2L/100km on the highway and 7.5L/100km in the city.

‘‘

In the Impala, Chevrolet has given drivers a vehicle that has flair, as well as potency.

’’

Alexandra Straub

While the Cruze diesel had already been available in Europe, the proven engine needed to be adapted to North American emissions ratings. It comes standard with a six-speed automatic transmission and 376.6L trunk space. It has an MSRP of $24,945 plus $1,550 destination freight charge.

Impala Chevrolet’s flagship sedan is all new for the 2014 model year. Released in 2013, this fivepassenger vehicle can certainly hold its own in a segment whose competitors are getting stronger and stronger.

Among its redeeming new features, an all-new exterior design. I think it looks great. Having had the opportunity to take it for a test drive, Chevrolet has certainly listened to their customers and in the Impala; it has given drivers a vehicle that has flair, as well as potency. Its cabin/interior also received a major overhaul and the result is pleasing to the eyes and to the touch. The 2014 Impala is offered with three engine choices, including two four-cylinder powertrains and a 3.6L V6. Output for the 3.6L V6 is rated at 305 horsepower and 264 lb.-ft. of torque (358 Nm). That is the highest horsepower output in the segment from a naturallyaspirated V6 engine. The Ecotec 2.5L is part of a new family of four-cylinder engines developed with increased efficiency and greater refinement. It is rated at 196 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque The Impala’s Ecotec 2.4L engine with eAssist provides electrical assist in certain conditions to help save fuel. It is rated at 182 horsepower.

The Chevrolet Impala looks great.

Malibu The 2013 model year brought forth an all-new Malibu. That said, not much has changed for 2014, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t get a few enhancements. For example, there’s now a fuel-saving start-stop technology added to the standard model, rear knee room improved by 1.25 inches (31.7 mm) and chassis and suspension developments enhance drive experience. That’s on top off the overhauled Malibu, on the inside and out.

Camaro Z/28 For those diehard track day fans who have been waiting for an

even more performance inspired Camaro, the wait is over. Almost. For 2014, the Z/28 makes its debut. All 2014 Camaro models feature a revised exterior design that integrates high-performance aerodynamics for more efficient cooling and stability at high speeds. However, the new Camaro Z/28 adds features like a full aerodynamics package that creates downforce at speed, which helps make it the most track-capable offering in Camaro’s history. Alongside its aerodynamic prowess, under its hood is a mechanical wonder. Its 7.0L,

LS7 V8 hand-assembled engine was co-developed with Corvette Racing to make it as potent as possible. Its monster engine produces an estimated 500 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. With those figures on paper, don’t expect amazing fuel results! And just like it takes an experienced driver to put it through its paces, your bank account will most likely need to be seasoned, too! It has an MSRP of $77,400. If you get to the show, all the GM brands, including Chevrolet, are well-represented. alexandra.straub@ drivewaybc.ca

Chrysler’s dark days are over ‘‘

Chrysler Canada recently recorded fifty consecutive months of year-over-year sales growth.

Bob McHugh

’’

4x4 systems and a QuadraLift air suspension. Led by the Ram 1500, Motor Trend magazine’s Truck of Year for the second year in a row and the only half-ton with a diesel engine option, Ram is now the second-best selling vehicle in Canada. Chrysler separated its Dodge brand and created the distinct standalone Ram brand to concentrate on core truck customers and offers a range of vehicles that includes pickup trucks, vans, cab/chassis platforms and commercial products, The Fiat brand is a relative newcomer to the Chrysler family and is sold through selected Chrysler dealers. A recent surge in sales was led primarily by the introduction of a new Fiat 500L. Expanding the size and appeal of the diminutive Cinquecento (Fiat 500) and offering 42 per cent more interior space plus seating for five, the new 500L is a contemporary and uniquely Italian styling package. If big, bold, and powerful is more your style, the Dodge Charger is a rear-drive, full size sedan with power to match its muscular styling. A new Redline Package comes with 20-inch black chrome wheels, Beats Audio and an upgraded 300 horsepower, 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 engine. If that’s not enough, there’s a new R/T edition comes with a 370 hp HEMI V8 engine. The best selling minivan of all time, Dodge Grand Caravan is the definitive family transporter. It now only comes with a Pentastar 3.5 litre V6 engine - no gutless base engine here - linked to a 6-speed automatic transmission. A new “Blacktop” package includes a black gloss front grille and headlamp treatments plus black polished aluminum wheels, giving it a more sinister appearance. The already mentioned 2015 Chrysler 200 is a redesigned mid-size sedan for those who have earned the right to enjoy some

luxury and those extra frills, yet still demand value for money. The 200’s exterior front-end design is apparently the new “face” of the Chrysler brand and it’s now based on an Alfa Romeo chassis. At the LA auto show about six years ago, the lights were turned out at an abandoned Chrysler display during the press preview days. It was both ominous and sad to see, as behind closed doors a once great company was struggling to survive. The dark days are over. PLEASE READ THE FINE PRINT: Offers valid until March 31, 2014.

These days, there’s always something new and interesting to see at a Chrysler auto show product display. Big and small it’s got’em all. There’s a super-cute little Fiat that can run forever on litre of fuel over here and a big, brawny heavy-duty Ram 2500 Laramie Longhorn Diesel that can pull a mountain over there. Then there’s value-packed Dodge, go-anywhere Jeep and those top-line Chrysler brand products, including the sleek new (2015) 200 sedan. Gear-heads will, of course, be gathered around the SRT Viper, which reportedly can transport occupants to 100 km/h in less than four seconds. On the business side, Chrysler Canada recently recorded fifty consecutive months of year-over-year sales growth, which is the longest period of continuous market improvement in the company’s history. Globally, 2013 was another great year for parent company Chrysler Group LLC, which reported a year-end net income of $2.8 billion, up from $1.7 billion the previous year. So far, in 2014, the sales growth story continues with award winning new vehicles and there are more new products in the pipeline. The radically redesigned Jeep Cherokee was recently voted 2014 Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year, by members of the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) and has already achieved best ever mid-size SUV sales results for Jeep. Cherokee is the first Jeep built on a body platform co-developed with corporate partner Fiat S.p.A. The base engine is a fuelefficient 2.4-litre Tigershark MultiAir 4-cylinder engine and there’s an optional new 3.2-litre Pentastar V6 engine. Other engineering highlights include a nine-speed automatic transmission and a new Jeep Selec-Terrain traction control system with up to five customized drive modes. This year the redesigned Jeep Grand Cherokee is offered with a new 3.0-litre EcoDiesel V6 engine option, which is expected to deliver best-in-class fuel economy, a driving range in excess of 1,100 km and towing capability up to 3357 kg (7,400 lb). A new eight-speed automatic transmission comes with all powertrains. Grand Cherokee also offers three

From the thrifty little Fiat 500L to the Dodge Charger, these days Chrysler has a lot of good news to talk about.

Too easy for fake farmers to dodge tax, Metro told Reform could boost legitimate farming, deter underuse Jeff Nagel Black Press

More agricultural land in the Lower Mainland might actually be farmed if cities crack down on property owners who abuse the current rules to avoid paying higher property taxes. That’s the advice to Metro Vancouver from consultant Scott Bowden of Colliers International, who studied options to intensify agricultural and industrial land use on behalf of the regional district. Bowden said too much land is underused because it’s too easy to qualify for farm tax status, which reduces the property tax owners pay by as much as 99 per cent from what they’d pay at residential rates. “We have seen evidence of this being abused,” he told a recent Metro Vancouver regional planning committee meeting. A Chilliwack man saved more than $100,000 by arranging to have a few llamas put on industrial land he owned,

Bowden said, while similar cases crop up of land owners adding a few cows or other livestock to achieve the “incredible benefit” of farm rates. Bowden said one option would be to substantially raise the current threshold for farm status – it only takes $2,500 in annual agricultural revenue for properties that are four hectares or smaller. Richmond Coun. Harold Steves, who is also a cattle farmer, said the threshold should definitely be raised, adding he’s turned down requests to put a few cows on properties to help owners dodge paying tax. He suspects many owners of giant houses on farmland avoid paying much higher tax bills by leasing out part of their yards to blueberry growers or livestock farmers. Steves said tax relief should be reserved for “bona fide farmers.” Langley Township Mayor Jack Froese said people with secluded country mansions who have no intention of farming shouldn’t be able to get the farm tax break.

“I believe they should be taxed at residential rates,” he said. “There are a lot of land owners who take advantage of the agricultural taxation.” Bowden said cities should consider applying much higher residential tax rates in the Agricultural Land Reserve to increase the cost to wealthy residents who don’t even attempt to seek farm status. Different residential tax rates can be applied in different geographic areas, he said, and the ALR could be defined as such. “We could make it so onerous to be located in the ALR that they would be more inclined to lease their property to a farmer in order to achieve the farm class status.” Meanwhile, Bowden said, legitimate farms should be allowed to average their production revenue over several years so they don’t lose farm status if they suffer the occasional money-losing year. Another reform already enacted last year by the provincial government exempts a larger amount of the assessed value of farm buildings like greenhouses and barns on areas with poor soil. Bowden said that change means a $1-million greenhouse today pays property tax on a much smaller fraction of the value, adding it’s hoped that encourages greater use of greenhouses. Metro planners intend to discuss Bowden’s findings with local cities and provincial officials before recommending any changes.

Clay Construction was recently named Custom Home Builder of the Year at the Georgie Awards, which recognize the best in B.C.’s residential construction industry.

Clay Construction named Best Custom Home Builder in B.C. By Kerry Vital

Clay Construction was recently announced the winner of the Grand Georgie Award for Custom Home Builder of the Year, recognizing their exceptional home-building and commitment to their business. The

awards are handed out by the Canadian Home Builders’ Association of B.C., and honour the best in B.C.’s residential construction industry. “We are highly honoured to win this prestigious award,” says owner Larry Clay. “We’re proud to be a Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association member, and we believe that our client-centred approach allows us to focus on what is important to our customers.” In a competitive and sophisticated marketplace, Clay Construction looks for ways to distinguish themselves. Their clients are successful business owners and leaders in their respective fields who demand the best. The Clay Construction team’s goal is to successfully fulfill their clients’ expectations,

which involve clear communication, agreed-upon expectations, and consistent weekly reports. “Knowing where the project is financially at all times is crucial.” says Clay. “Clay Construction is founded on the principles of integrity, professionalism, quality, and transparency.” As part of their commitment to customer service, Clay and his team implement building practices that few custom home builders emulate. A detailed catalogue of pictures, moisture checks of the framing, and a detailed warranty binder are just three of the thirty items noted on their website where Clay Construction is unrivaled. They’re proud to share important practices on building a better home that will out-perform others.

“Every build has its own unique challenges,” says Clay. Their projects have included: large luxury estate homes on acreages, house and laneways built concurrently in re-emerging Vancouver neighbourhoods, a wheelchairaccessible R2000 house, and a split-lot project resulting in a couple of narrow homes with astonishing spaciousness. Furthermore, they have completed a wide spectrum of architecturally diverse homes from modern to Craftsman. Give them a set of plans and they will bring the home to life. Additionally, they will provide a detailed budget, scope and specifications before they move one stone. They believe that quality and peace of mind is something you should be able to depend on! Clients are guaranteed a homebuilding experience that is collaborative and enjoyable; something that Clay prides himself on. “I love what I do, and I love knowing my company is an award-winning leader in the industry,” he says. For more information, visit their website at www.clayconstruction.ca.
