More buses, light rail and SkyTrain: Metro mayors are on a roll 10-year, $7.5-billion transit plan unveiled by Jeff Nagel
METRO VANCOUVER mayors have voted to go to referendum on using carbon taxes and eventually road pricing to pay for an ambitious transit expansion that would bring more buses, new light rail lines in Surrey and a SkyTrain extension in Vancouver. Their newly unveiled 10-year plan asks the province to reallocate $250 million in annual carbon taxes to TransLink – something the province immediately rejected – but the back-up request is to create a new regional carbon tax charged only within Metro Vancouver. That would effectively force motorQ Surrey light rail ists and homeowners, as well as busilines to Newton, ness and industry, to all pay more for Guildford and the fuel and natural gas they burn. Langley – It also calls for a tolled four-lane $2.1 billion span to replace the aging Pattullo Bridge, although that toll, along with Q Vancouver those on other bridges such as the Broadway Port Mann and Golden Ears, could SkyTrain underground extension be reduced or replaced with a shift in several years to a system of region– $2 billion wide road and bridge tolls. That eventual road pricing system Q Tolled Pattullo Bridge four-klane would take five to eight years to design, but mayors aim to reduce gas replacement – taxes by six cents per litre when it $1 billion takes effect.

Boy falls from Surrey window by Sheila Reynolds A THREE-YEAR-OLD boy was taken to
hospital Friday morning after falling from the window of a Surrey home. Surrey RCMP say emergency personnel were called to a house near 149 Street and 58A Avenue at about 8:30 a.m. June 13 after the child tumbled from an upper floor bedroom window. He was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and is expected to fully recover. Police say it appears the fall was “an unfortunate accident” and serves as a reminder for parents and caregivers to keep windows secure during warmer weather and watch children closely.

Commuters drive over the newly opened 152 Street overpass (near Colebrook Road). The $5-million project was first approved in 2010 with a scheduled completion date this past March. The overpass is a component of the Roberts Bank Rail Corridor Program, which features nine overpasses in total. The new four-lane overpass, which spans 96 metres, was constructed in order to improve rail operations, reduce traffic delays and enhance safety. Until June 20, there will be no vehicle access to Colebrook Road, with motorists advised to take 40 Avenue instead.

At about 2:40 p.m. June 10, a Surrey RCMP member tried to pull over a suspicious Toyota Matrix near 88 Avenue and 156 Street, but the car took off, striking the officer. The vehicle was followed to the area of 92 Avenue and 172 Street, where the female driver and male passenger
got out of the car and ran. After a short foot pursuit, which included a police dog, the pair were arrested and taken into custody. The investigation continues.
Search called off for missing boater DELTA POLICE were called to a report
of a man who fell from a boat last Saturday (June 7). A boat was located near the Alex Fraser Bridge and a man on board said his friend had fallen overboard. Police and the Coast Guard searched for the missing man until dark, but did not find him. The search resumed Sunday, with authorities using a hovercraft and helicopter. The search was suspended later Sunday. Police said alcohol doesn’t appear to be a factor, but added the man was not wearing a life jacket and is a nonswimmer. The missing man is described as an Indo-Canadian man in his 30s, 5’11”, with a muscular build, short brown hair, a mole on his cheek and nose, and arm tattoos of a cobra and the word “ASHNEIL.” He was last seen wearing a grey Old Navy shirt and jeans.

Surrey Six trial wraps up Closing arguments in mass murder case scheduled to begin July 2 Black Press DEFENCE LAWYERS for two accused
gang members on trial for the socalled Surrey Six murders say they aren’t calling any witnesses. Since last fall, Cody Haevischer and Matthew Johnston have been on trial in Vancouver, each charged with one count of conspiracy and six counts of first-degree murder for a mass killing in October 2007. Innocent bystanders Chris Mohan, a 22-year-old Surrey student, and Ed Schellenberg, a 55-year-old gas fitter, were killed in a Surrey apartment, as were Ryan Bartolomeo, Eddie Narong, and brothers Corey and Michael Lal, who had ties to the drug trade. Lawyers for Johnston and Haevischer told Mohan the judge last week in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver that they aren’t calling any evidence. Closing submissions are to begin July 2 and continue until July 11. Schellenberg A decision could take many more months. The trial has heard from 73 witnesses, including former gang leader Michael Le, who was charged in the same case then pleaded guilty to conspiracy midway through the trial and agreed to testify for the Crown, against his former co-accused. Crown prosecutors purport the killing began as a planned hit on a rival drug trafficker, but that the five others were killed to eliminate potential witnesses.

Scott Hamilton bows out of civic politics A Delta councillor since 2002, he will step down to focus on his role as MLA for Delta-North by Kevin Diakiw A LONGTIME Delta councillor is stepping
down to focus on his role as Liberal MLA for Delta-North. Delta Coun. Scott Hamilton was elected to provincial office in May of last year, but continued to perform his duties as
councillor at the request of Delta council to avoid a costly byelection. He received no pay for his role as councillor after he was elected to provincial office. On Friday, the man who served on Delta council since 2002 stepped down from that role. As the seat is vacant in the same year as a civic election, a byelection won’t be necessary. “On behalf of council and the entire community, I thank MLA Scott Hamilton for his selfless and dedicated service to Delta,” said Mayor Lois Jackson. “Although we are losing a valued member of council, I am so pleased Mr. Hamilton will continue to serve our community in
his role as MLA for Delta-North, providing a vital link between Delta and the provincial government.” Hamilton has been at the forefront of several community projects and initiatives over his four terms on council. These include recreation facility upgrades and the addition of synthetic turf fields in his role as vice-chair of the Parks, Recreation and Culture Commission. In addition, Hamilton chaired the Housing Task Force, with the goal of providing a diverse range of affordable housing to meet the demands of a changing population. firstname.lastname@example.org

Plan: More HandyDart service From page 1 Transportation Minister Todd Stone said there’s “no chance” the province will reallocate existing carbon taxes – which offset income taxes – but said he is willing to discuss an additional regional carbon tax as well as road pricing. The 10-year plan with $7.5-billion in capital spending would end a tussle by the region’s two biggest cities for new rapid transit dollars. Surrey would get priority for a new $2.1-billion “L Line” connecting Guildford, Surrey Centre and Newton by light rail trains, with a later light rail line running to Langley City via Fraser Highway. Vancouver would get a $2-billion extension of SkyTrain’s Millennium Line running west on the Broadway corridor as far as Arbutus. A further extension to UBC could be considered
later. Also resolved is a scrap between Surrey and New Westminster over the Pattullo replacement – the new bridge would be four lanes but expandable to six later. The package first requires tentative approval by the provincial government and then a yes vote by a majority of Metro residents in a referendum expected as early as spring 2015. Transit improvements pledged include: • 11 new B-Line express bus routes covering 200 kilometres. • 25-per-cent increase in bus service, with many more routes getting frequent service of every 15 minutes. • 30-per-cent boost in HandyDart service. • 50-per-cent increase in SeaBus service at peak hours to every 10 minutes from 15 now. Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan was the lone mayor to vote against the plan, while the mayors of Delta and Anmore were absent. Corrigan said he pushed for a more mod-

tions coming from the provincial and federal governments. It’s assumed Victoria and Ottawa will each pay one-third of the cost of major projects, or $3.5 billion over a decade. “That’s a lot of money,” Stone said when asked by reporters if the package is affordable. The province previously pledged one-third of major rapid transit projects as well as the Pattullo Bridge, but Stone said it’s important to phase the work and added the offer is subject to a solid business plan and the province’s ability to afford contributions. He congratulated mayors for their work and said he believes a referendum is winnable. The province is already reviewing its tolling policy and Stone said road pricing is “likely where things are going in the long term.” An extra million new residents are expected to arrive over the next 25 years, along with 500,000 more cars, making today’s road congestion look minor without much improved transit to carry many more people, mayors said. “We need to make sure people have options to the automobile or we will be in gridlock,” Port Coquitlam Mayor Greg Moore said. Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson the current freeze on funding has pushed transit service into decline and has “caused chaos” around the region. The plan would generate $110 million per year in new funding initially, rising to $390 million a year by the end of the 10 years.
It also forecasts TransLink will eventually collect an extra $500 million in extra transit fares annually as a result of increased ridership. Property taxes would continue to rise at the current rate of three per cent each year. Not proposed are other previously discussed taxes such as a vehicle levy or regional sales tax.

Put the focus on students
ow that members of the B.C. Teachers Federation have overwhelmingly voted to go on strike, the attention needs to turn to students – as indeed it should have been from the very beginning of this dispute. BCTF members claim that their job actions are solely about making learning outcomes for students better, but that’s a bit rich when their bargaining position calls for raises that exceed those given to other public sector workers. They do have a good point in their relentless focus on class composition, because that does have a direct and dramatic effect on student outcomes – and not just the special needs kids who do get more attention in the classroom, but every other student. With teachers likely on strike this week (as of The Leader’s press deadline Monday, there was still no agreement between educators and Victoria), the province and school districts must come up with a strategy to ensure that Grade 12 students can write their exams and graduate, and head off to post-secondary institutions in September. There also needs to be a plan in place so students who need the extra assistance provided in summer school can receive it. The union and the employers’ group must also bargain relentlessly – every single day of the summer if necessary – to ensure that there is a contract in place by the beginning of the school year in September. Students must have certainty about next year’s education. It’s up to the province and the BCTF to focus on students, first and foremost.

In Ontario, Premier Kathleen Wynne saved her gut-shot Liberal government by limping to the left of the NDP, promising to spend lots more borrowed money and build lots of transit. This is in a have-not province with an operating deficit that is currently running north of $12 billion. For comparison purposes, B.C.’s deficit swelled briefly beyond $3 billion in the wake of the Great Recession of 2009, and the books stayed in the red until last year as the B.C. Liberals unwound the

credit rating based on the election result, and is about to go into province-wide bargaining with public service unions who want their share from the Liberal money tree. Ontario Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak ran on a plan that sounded similar to the one presented by Christy Clark in 2013: hold the line on spending, balance the budget, reduce the size of government, stimulate job creation. Hudak was rejected for a second time, and resigned the leadership on election night. B.C. voters now have three years to see how the Ontario version of Liberal government plays out, compared to the B.C. Liberal version. For us, much depends on resource development, including forest products, natural gas and other trade with Asia. If all goes well here, B.C. can continue to send transfer payments to the fantasyland of Ontario. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press.

Why be Neither side cares about kids against progress? I’M SO sick of all this garbage involving
THE ISSUES about LRT versus SkyTrain and the replacement of the Massey Tunnel is getting to be repetitious and boring. That is the reason why most readers are ignoring them. I believe SkyTrain will eventually be extended from King George Station, and the Massey Tunnel will eventually be replaced. It is only a question of time. Not everyone is against progress. If we were against progress, we would have no transmission towers to bring us hydro power, TV or cellphones, no railroads to transport our natural resources and passengers, no highways or trucks on them to bring us our consumer goods, no oil or natural gas pipelines bringing energy to our homes, and no ships to transport our natural resources to the world, and return with cars, trucks, and household goods. Our whole economy would come to a standstill.

the government and teachers. My support has been with the teachers but if this mama doesn’t see her son get his diploma in a couple weeks, I’ll be furious. My biggest question? Both sides “claim” this is all for the best of the children. The best thing for our children is that you get your stuff together go back to work (stay at work) and once you are mature enough to sit down together and really work it out then do so – maybe in July when it really wouldn’t affect our kids. Teachers and government would have two months before they have to worry about hurting our kids and taking away things they have worked years for. Why does this not happen? It’s ridiculous. We encourage our kids to be understanding and have a voice and be responsible, compromise and do what’s right. It’s time both sides practised what they preach. Does anyone know why instead of doing all this now, they can’t wait until the kids are out of school? They can strike in September if it’s not resolved, when kids are reviewing things rather than making them all lose out now. All this mess states to me is that neither side cares about my kids.

Cities fret over medical marijuana Worried about tax, farmland hit by Jeff Nagel

iticians are increasingly worried their cities will receive less in property tax if big medical marijuana producers set up shop on industrial land and then convert the property to farm tax status. In one example outlined in a Metro staff report, a
The City of Surrey is calling for nominations for the 2014 City Awards Program. This family of six awards celebrates excellence in urban design, clean energy, community spirit, civic beautification, environmental stewardship and heritage.
25,000-square-foot warehouse in an industrial business park in Richmond that pays $33,500 in taxes to the city would pay just $395 – a 99 per cent reduction – if a new pot producer moves in and secures farm status. B.C. Assessment has already ruled medical marijuana to be a qualifying agricultural use for the lower farm tax rate because it’s classified as “medicinal plant culture.” “It’s a pretty dangerous precedent we’re looking at here,” Richmond Coun. Harold Steves told Metro’s regional planning committee June 6. The issue has left cities weighing whether to allow pot to be grown on farmland to avoid erosion of their industrial tax base. That scenario also concerns Steves, who said nobody wants to see “some big grey concrete box that looks like a D-Day bunker” erected in the midst of productive farmland, reducing the capacity to grow food crops. “If this is about bun-
kers with barbed wire fences around them, it should be in industrial areas,” said Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan. He said it’s unfair to local cities that they may lose out while the federal and provincial governments stand poised to earn more tax revenue as medical marijuana becomes a commercial industry. “Why should municipalities subsidize the growing of marijuana through agricultural zoning and taxes while other orders of government make significant amounts of taxation?” Corrigan asked. New pot plantations will be “fraught with issues” and bear very little resemblance to conventional agriculture, he predicted. The Agricultural Land Commission has already ruled medical pot can be grown on farmland in the Agricultural Land Reserve. Health Canada has so far issued 13 licences for commercial producers of medical marijuana.

Robinson, who is set to graduate from Clayton Heights Secondary this month, has a four-year scholarship offer to Florida International University.
If he attends university, Robinson would be re-eligible for the draft following his junior season. Or he can turn pro and sign with the Marlins and go into the team’s farm system. He can’t make a decision until after he graduates. “I am excited with moving forward with whatever path I choose,” Robinson said. “I just love to play. No matter what happens (next), I will just go about my business and play the game.”

Eagles add four to their roster BC Hockey League team brings locals aboard by Nick Greenizan SAY THIS for the Surrey
Eagles – they’re staying true to their word. When owner Chuck Westgard took over sole control of the BC Hockey League team in April – buying out his remaining minority partners – he promised the team would have a renewed interest in icing a lineup of local faces. And midway through the off-season, the team has done just that, signing three players with local ties and trading for another, all in the last three weeks. Last month, the Birds – who lost to the Langley Rivermen in the first round of BCHL playoffs last season – signed 20-year-old Semi-
ahmoo Minor Hockey alum Ben Vikich, who spent the majority of last season in Maine, with the Portland Pirates of the United States Premier Hockey League. “I’m excited to come back to Surrey for my 20-year-old season,” said Vikich. “As a kid I regularly attended Surrey Eagles games hoping to one day represent my home-town team.” A week after Vikich’s arrival, the Eagles signed Surrey native Quinn Lenihan, who played Junior B last season for the Grandview Steelers in Vancouver, and last Tuesday announced that White Rock resident Sam Chatterley – who suited up for the Eagles 12 times last year as an affiliate player – would also come
into the fold full-time this fall. Lenihan, who at six-foot-four will add some size to the Eagles’ forward group, attended Earl Marriott Secondary’s hockey academy last season, while Chatterley is a Valley West Hawks major-midget alum, and spent most of last season with the Junior B Delta Icehawks. “(Quinn) is a big, skilled player… He will be able to fit in and contribute right away,” Eagles director of hockey operations Blaine Neufeld said in a release. “(Sam) plays on the edge and I would imagine the players will feed off his energy and passion. Sam will be a fun player to watch.” Earlier this week, the
Eagles also welcomed forward Demico Hannoun back into the nest. The Delta native was a key member of the Eagles’ Fred Page Cup championship team of 2012/13, but was dealt to the Vipers that offseason to complete an earlier trade for Adam Tambellini. Now, in a ironic twist, Hannoun is back in South Surrey, once again to complete an earlier trade. Hannoun and forward Ben Butcher – son of former Canucks defenceman Garth Butcher – were dealt to the Eagles to complete the ‘future considerations’ component of the January trade that saw Surrey captain Brett Mulcahy head to the Vipers.

English Language Training Matters to BC’s economy. Dear Minister Amrik Virk and Premier Christy Clark,
The BC government has cut English as a Second Language training in post-secondary institutions in British Columbia. In fact, your Ministry has reduced ESL funding to zero. Vancouver Community College has been providing English as a Second Language training to skilled citizens and immigrants for more than 40 years. We deliver 46% of all ESL training in BC post-secondary schools, serving more than 3,000 students each term from across Metro Vancouver, including from right here in Surrey. Now, these students have nowhere to go. >P[OV\[,UNSPZOSHUN\HNL[YHPUPUNOV^HYL[OL`Z\WWVZLK[VÄUKLTWSV`TLU[HUKJVU[YPI\[L to our economy? The BC government is focused on the BC Jobs Plan. We are too. Minister Virk and Premier Clark, we’re asking you to listen to the thousands of skilled citizens and immigrants who want to help grow our province’s economy. Restoring funding to ESL training at VCC is a smart investment in BC’s future. Thank you, The Faculty Association at Vancouver Community College The Students’ Union of Vancouver Community College
