Spray treatment planned to thwart gypsy moth

MINISTRY OF FORESTS

The gypsy moth treatment zone takes in most of Cloverdale.

By Jennifer Lang The province will be conducting up to four aerial pesticide spray applications over Cloverdale to combat the destructive gypsy moth. A pesticide use permit to aerial spray 4,576 hectares in Surrey and another 204 hectares in South Delta has been issued to the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. Between April 15 and June 30, the Forests Ministry is planning up to four applications of Foray 48B to control the moth. Foray 48B contains the bacteria Btk and kills caterpillars after they ingest it but doesn’t harm humans, mammals, birds, fish, plants, reptiles, amphibians or other insects.

Walk ‘feeds body and soul’

S U R R EY M U S E U M

Proceeds will help Cloverale Community Kitchen spread its reach

Spring Break

By Jennifer Lang Fueled by hot coffee and hearty stew, more than 200 people took to the streets of Cloverdale to raise money as part of the Coldest Night of the Year walk. This year’s walk, held Feb. 21, raised more than $40,000 – money that will be used to help support the Cloverdale Community Kitchen. Ingredients for the stew were provided by SaveOn-Foods, and the meal was cooked up by volunteers from the Cloverdale Community Kitchen, said organizer Jim Heuving, executive pastor of Pacific Community Church. “Even McCafe set up their mobile unit and served us a full selection of hot beverages,” he added. “It was a great night!” Thirty teams took part. Local realtor Edith Katronis and team were lead sponsor, contributing $2,500 and raising another $2,000. “We are really thankful for the Katronis team,” Heuving said. “They were outstanding!” Based out of Pacific Community Church, the industrial-grade community kitchen is home to three existing programs assisting Cloverdale’s less fortunate. Last year’s walk coincided with the kitchen’s

launch, and helped pay for a consultant who spoke with community organizations and individuals in Cloverdale about the direction of the kitchen. Funds raised at this year’s walk – one of 60 walks organized by charities assisting homeless across Canada – will be used to bring in a full-time coordinator for the kitchen. The goal is to broaden the number of programs offered. To Edith Katronis, the walk is important because it directly helps and benefits the community – after all, people who are well fed and cared for are more productive. The community kitchen is also helping seniors and some children. “This is something where you can see the results,” she added. “These folk who serve meals to the needy are also there to talk to them and help a poor soul along who needs it. I call it feeding the body and soul.” She notes the funds are well spent, because there are many volunteers who are donating their time. “Cloverdale can be proud that a small community like we are is successful in hosting such a worthwhile endeavour.”

If left untreated, the destructive moth could spread to new areas of the province by hitching a ride on vehicles, containers, trains, port terminals and B.C. Ferries. The moth is an introduced pest species. The caterpillars feast on tree leaves and can damage for-

ests, farms, and orchards. Large gypsy moth populations have defoliated swaths of forests and residential areas in Ontario and the eastern U.S. in recent years, the ministry says. For more information, call 1-866-917-5999 or www.gov. bc.ca/gypsymoth.

A colourful crowd

B.C.’s property transfer tax is too much cash to pass up If you’re hoping B.C. will scrap the PTT, forget it. It’s a major cash cow for the province Realtors, prospective homebuyers and sellers, and others can stop hoping that B.C.’s property transfer tax (PTT) will be discontinued. It’s never going to happen. The reason? It’s a major cash cow for the provincial government, needed to balance the budget and there’s nowhere else to raise that large chunk of cash without raising personal and corporate income taxes, and that’s not on for the BC Liberals. Premier Christy Clark is proud of what she says is the country’s lowest tax rate so this kind of special tax, that only hits buyers of property, is not going anytime soon, even

though, as Clark herself says, it’s a drag on the economy. Here’s how it shakes down, according to a recent article by Black Press regional reporter Jeff Nagel: The PTT consists of 1 per cent charged on the first $200,000 of a property’s value and 2 per cent after that. That means for a $600,000 house, $10,000 is due every time it changes hands. This handy little calculation is not just a painful hit to the pocket book when purchasing a home — it’s a major source of revenue, generating $1.04 billion in 2014.

Don’t think that’s a lot of cash? Well, consider that the PTT raises significantly more than forestry — formerly the province’s number one industry — which only brings in about $757 million; or natural gas royalties, which at $542 million, generate about half of what the PTT does. These revenue numbers are interesting for another reason: They show how important real estate is to B.C.’s ongoing financial solidity. Without a strong real estate market, helped, no doubt, by record-low interest rates, the provincial coffers would be much poorer.

Points of view

The Cloverdale

The province also benefits from rising property values and while there are exemptions for family transfers and first-time home buyers, it appears the property transfer tax is a necessary evil that raises millions to cover basic provincial services. A strong real estate industry and increased property values, especially in single-family homes, are therefore critical to government budgeting — at least for now. So unless the much-vaunted LNG industry or another economic sector can provide a windfall, the PTT is here to stay.

**** H. H. Simmons, a prominent local architect, designed numerous movie theatres across B.C. He was an expert in designing large, clearspan concrete structures with truss roofs – a fireproof feature for public buildings, including some of the large buildings on the PNE fairgrounds: the livestock barn and the garden auditorium. In a region that’s lost innumerable heritage buildings, the Clova is also valuable because it’s a rare surviving example in Surrey of the Streamline Modern style, a variant of Art Deco. Characterized by rounded corners and smooth surfaces, the style is influenced by the design of airplanes, steamships and locomotives.

plan for the building, located at 5732 176 Street. If approved, the plan will usher in some noticeable cosmetic changes to the building’s exterior, including the paint scheme, which would revert to the Clova’s original colours. The heritage consultant has recommended cottage cream and gloss black, historically accurate colours that are pre-approved by the City of Surrey, but may not please everyone. “We support the concept of keeping Clova historic but members prefer the design and colour scheme as it now exists, rather than the original scheme which we consider flat and boring,” Cloverdale Community Association Mike Bola wrote in a September letter to the city’s planning department. “Most residents of Cloverdale identify with the present look, which has existed for several decades, and few can recollect the Clova of long ago.” The Clova’s conservation plan was drafted according to recommendations made by heritage consultant Donald Luxton and Associates, who completed a report in July. The theatre has been “drastically altered over the years,” the report says. “Fortunately, a number of original features and archival images do exist, which will enable a more accurate restoration of the front facade.” Recommendations include replacing all signage installed above the marquee for Smallville with signage designed to look like the Clova’s original signs, down to

Band-aid: Cadets call out for Highland help The 2277 Seaforth Highlanders Cadets need cash to start a band By Jennifer Lang Cloverdale, the pipes are calling you. Fans of pipe and drum bands are urged to answer an appeal from a local cadet corps – the 2277 Seaforth Highlanders Royal Canadian Army Cadets. With help, they hope to realize their dream of stepping out on parade at community events, properly attired and in tune – and honour a long-standing Canadian tradition. They’ve launched an online crowd-funding initiative at YouCaring.com to raise money for instruction and band uniforms. They’re looking to raise $30,000 by April, in time for parade season. Without instruments or highland gear, they cannot enter parades or participate in community events like Remembrance Day services. For the past year, some of the cadets have trained with the Surrey Seaforth Cadets to learn the bagpipes and drums – skills that are synonymous with Canada’s famed Seaforth Highlanders regiment and cadets. But that instructional opportunity has now moved to Delta or Jericho Beach – both too far to travel on a weeknight for cadets who live in Abbotsford or Aldergrove, says parent sponsoring committee member Karen Murphy Corr. “A big part of the Scottish military tradition is, of course, having bagpipers and drummers as part of the corps,” says Corr, who has two sons enrolled. Founded in 2010, the Langleybased corps has grown to more than 60 cadets from across the

region, including Cloverdale. The corps has had “tremendous support from the Cloverdale community, since it was founded five years ago, “especially the Cloverdale Legion,” she says. Members of Royal Canadian Legion Branch 6, “Have done so much for our cadets and we would really like to be able to give back,” Corr said. “Our goal is to have a cadet pipe and drum band to represent the corps at events like the Legion open house and the Cloverdale Rodeo parade.” To veterans like Mike Harvey, who, like many throughout the Fraser Valley, served with

‘We have a bond.’ - Mike Harvey, RCL Branch 6 member, former Seaforth Highlander cadet and army veteran the Seaforth Highlanders in active duty, there’s an important connection with affiliated cadet corps. “We have a bond,” he wrote the Langley Times earlier this year. As a youth, he joined a Seaforth Higlanders cadet corps. “We trained in the Seaforth Armoury in Vancouver, our uniforms being glengarries, blue tunics, kilts, sporrans and socks.” At 16, Harvey left cadets to become a “boy” soldier during the Second World War, earning 70 cents a day pay. He became a paratrooper, was wounded, eventually winding up with the Seaforth Highlanders in Holland

during the last days of the war. “A splendid regiment it is, with a history of courageous fierce battles through Sicily, Italy, and Holland,” says Harvey, a member of RCL Branch 6 in Cloverdale. When told by The Reporter of the 2277 Seaforth Cadets fundraising appeal, he offered a list of fundraising suggestions – from piping in guests at the Cloverdale Legion’s monthly pancake breakfasts and then taking up a collection plate, to having the band playing “Scotland A Brae” at the race track with an explanation over the loudspeaker as to why. Or, he offered, “A story in your paper concerning this and directed to all those with Scottish blood.” But starting a pipe and drum band from the ground up isn’t cheap these days. The cost of highland dress – kilts, hose, sporrans, tunics, and glengarry caps – is considerable. but putting that cost onto parents is an option the committee refuses to consider.

Supermarket closure has seniors worried With no replacement yet announced as MarketPlace IGA shuts its doors, local seniors wonder where they’ll shop By Jennifer Lang The MarketPlace IGA in Clover Square Village shut its doors last week, but there’s no official word on what anchor store might replace it – or when it would open. That’s left downtown Cloverdale residents like John Masters – a senior who doesn’t drive – asking hard questions about where they’ll shop for groceries. Masters, who lives in a seniors complex at 176A Street and 60 Avenue, says it’s simply too far to walk to the nearest full-service grocery store – the Save-On-Foods at Cloverdale Crossing (17745 64 Avenue), which is on the other side of the Cloverdale Fairgrounds from

his home. “I can’t afford a taxi,� he said, adding he’s aware of other residents who don’t drive and relied on MarketPlace IGA, including people who use walkers. “We were wondering how we will get our food,� said Masters, who contacted The Reporter hoping to learn if a new grocery store will be moving in. While rumours abound – suggestions include Your Independent Grocer, an Ontario-based supermarket chain with stores in Langley, Coquitlam, Vancouver and Abbotsford – official channels remain silent. Last month a representative

of H.Y. Louie Co., which in B.C. supplies IGA stores, which are independently owned, directed The Reporter to the Cloverdale store manager and franchisee Ron Day. He was not able to disclose the name of the new tenant. The mall, at 17700 56 Avenue, is owned by Clover Square Holdings, a holding company of Standard Life Insurance. Barry Holmes, a property manager with Colliers International, was able to reveal in January that a new tenant has been lined up, but he wasn’t able to say more than that. Contacted again this week, he said he was still not at liberty to

Parents aim to keep costs down

‘We were wondering how we will get our food.’ - John Masters reveal the name of the new tenant, and could provide no timeline for when that might change. The MarketPlace IGA has served Cloverdale residents since November 1997. About 35 employees are affected by the closure. Downtown Cloverdale lost a corner supermarket, Cloverdale Market at 58 Avenue and 176 Street, a couple of years ago.

Long time residents also recall the loss of Safeway from the former Cloverdale Shopping Plaza mall. Your Independent Grocer is an Ontario-based supermarket chain with outlets in Langley and Coquitlam, Vancouver and Abbotsford. They’re owned by Loblaw Companies Ltd. the largest grocery chain in canada. There are 150 locations across the country, including Atlantic Canada, where Loblaws is converting 41 of its Save Easy locations to Independent Grocer stores. There, the company didn’t anticipate staffing changes, according to The PEI Guardian.

committee works hard to ensure that any youth who wants to participate never has to worry about cost as a barrier,� says Corr. “We want to keep it that way.� Donations of cash or volunteer time at community events, such as helping service clubs, are urgently requested. The wish list includes everything from 10 sets of Highland dress plus accessories and two more sets of bagpipes, to drum repairs, decals and money to pay for instructional time. They’re also looking into the possibility of additional cost savings by having kilts made in the style that was worn during the First World War. Due to wartime rationing, the garments were pleated in such a way that they used far less fabric and were much less expensive to make, explained Corr. Visit www.2277.rcacc.com for more information.

If your mortgage is coming up for renewal, this is a great opportunity to not only get a great interest rate but also to determine what type of mortgage now best suits your current situation. Start by considering: 1. Do you plan on moving in the near future? If yes, then an open mortgage or one that’s portable could give you the flexibility you need. Some mortgage lenders have more Feisal Panjwani, AMP flexibility than others. 2. Do you want to pay down your mortgage more quickly? Consider an accelerated payment schedule or a lump sum payment as it could save thousands in interest over the life of the mortgage. 3. Is your monthly cash ow a little tight? Increasing your amortization will lower your payments and free up cash for other needs or consider a refinance to eliminate interest debts. 4. Do you want to consider some long-awaited home renovations? The best time to make changes to your mortgage is usually upon renewal. At Invis-Feisal & Associates, we can speak to you about any concerns you may have, including interest rate trends, future plans and other financial decisions that may affect your mortgage requirements.

Surrey First slate spends $1.2m to sweep council Expenses eclipses Mayor Hepner’s civic election competitors By Kevin Diakiw Surrey First spent almost $2 million securing every seat on city council, according to recently released campaign disclosure statements. Of that, $1.18 million was spent during the campaign period, with the rest spent prior. The expense eclipses that of Mayor Linda Hepner’s Surrey First competitors. Mayoral candidate Barinder Rasode’s One Surrey coalition spent $347,000 during the campaign (and only $5,720 prior), and Safe Surrey, with Doug McCallum as mayoral hopeful, spent just over $70,000. He spent another $70,000 prior the campaign. The $1.2 million spent by Surrey First during a campaign is a new high-water mark for the organization, which spent $662,000 in the 2011 election, when it also swept council. This year’s contributors to the Surrey First campaign read like a who’s who of the development industry, as $902,000 of the campaign war chest was created by corporations. David Balsor contributed $25,000 to the campaign, while

Robert Bosa gave the coalition $21,500. Other big contributors include: Bhupinder Ajula ($20,000), Surrey Firefighters Association ($32,600), Gurved Sandhu ($15,000) and Ralph Berezan ($13,000). The vast majority of the campaign expenditures ($301,000) went to salaries and wages. Research and polling gobbled $163,000 of the campaign funds, while radio, TV and newspaper ads came to $174,000. Contributors to Rasode’s One Surrey’s campaign was a mix of union groups, developers and members of the community. Larger donors included Bosa Properties ($14,000), BC Maritime Employers ($12,000), United Steelworkers ($10,000), Value Industries ($10,000), and the Rasode family ($10,000). The bulk of Rasode’s expenditures went to “other” advertising ($120,000) and research and polling ($50,000). Former Mayor Doug McCallum’s Safe Surrey Coalition received its larger donations from Bill’s Developments (Bob Cheema) for $9,600, Crown

Distributors ($5,000), and Wendy and Rodney Cameron ($5,000). Safe Surrey spent almost half of its contributions on salaries and wages ($30,000) and “other” campaign expenses ($15,800). Surrey First Education (SFE), which swept all the Surrey school board seats, spent $35,000 in its campaign. The largest donor by far was the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), which donated $11,000 to the coalition. It represents the only union contribution to the SFE campaign. There was also $16,700 from corporations and $7,500 from individuals. By law, all people or electoral organizations participating in the 2014 civic elections had until Friday, Feb. 13 to file their financial information. That information was made public on the Elections BC website late last month. Those disclosures can be found at http://contributions. electionsbc.gov.bc.ca/pcs/ LESearch.aspx. – Black Press

Mail theft re-routes frustrate residents By Tracy Holmes A South Surrey man is calling on Canada Post and police to start using video surveillance in the fight against damage to and theft from community mailboxes. “This has been going on for 20 years in my neighbourhood,” Murray McFadden said. “It’s not getting any better, and, of course, it’s going to get a whole lot worse. “To me, (installing surveillance cameras) makes sense.” Theft and damage issues with community mailboxes have made headlines in recent months, as residents venturing out to collect their mail discover superboxes that have been either pried open and cleaned out, or hauled off in their entirety. It’s a problem throughout the Lower Mainland, with those on the front lines saying it has been particularly prevalent in South Surrey, Cloverdale, Newton and Langley. Stephen Gale, president of the Fraser Valley West local of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, said the problem has become a daily issue. “It’s not getting any better in the short-term,” Gale said. “It normally spikes, then calms down. This time, it doesn’t seem to be calming down. “It didn’t help that… one of the TV (news) shows pretty much showed everybody how to get into these boxes.” Gale said he is not convinced video surveillance is the way to go. “It doesn’t stop the crooks, they just hide their faces and still break in,” he said. In addition to the logistics of installing the cameras, there is the issue of privacy, he added. “Anytime a camera goes up anywhere, it’s an issue,” he said. “I just don’t think that’s a practical solution.”

Canada Post spokesperson Anick Losier declined to confirm if video surveillance is among measures being considered by a task forceestablished to deal with the issue. She cited concern that disclosing any of the preventative tactics could inadvertently end up helping the culprits. A Surrey RCMP spokesperson said only that “all possibilities” are being explored to improve mail safety, and that an officer was to meet with a Canada Post security representative last week. While Losier did not have specifics on the number of mailboxes affected, Gale estimated that on any given day, “hundreds” of residents are having to attend either the White Rock Letter Carrier Depot or the Cloverdale depot to pick up their mail, where it is being held pending repair or replacement of their community mailbox. For some, it is a minimum 40-minute round-trip drive, and Gale said not everyone is thrilled with the inconvenience. One man said that the line up recently at the White Rock depot – located in South Surrey in the 15400-block of 24 Avenue – was 10 to 12 people long. “There’s at least one situation every day,” Gale said, referring to times when managers are called to deal with upset customers. He appealed to residents to have patience. “We know there’s lots of lineups,” he said. “The staff that are working there are doing their best. They have nothing to do with the break-ins, so please don’t yell at them.” He suggested people with concerns to contact their MPs.

On Feb. 13, three people broke into Fonyo’s home in the 11000-block of 136 street. He was stabbed, and taken to hospital.

Panthers place second at Fraser Valley tournment while eyeing provincials By Rick Kupchuk After making school history just six days earlier, the Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers didn’t let up at the Fraser Valley Senior 4A Boys high school basketball tournament, placing a very impressive second in the largest zone in the province. The Panthers, after clinching a berth at the B.C. tournament for the first time since 1953 earlier in the week, defeated the Semiahmoo Totems 96-79 in an all-Surrey semifinal game last Friday at the Langley Events Centre. Saturday evening, they gave the eventual champion Yale Lions a test before falling 88-78. “It was a very positive game,” said Panthers head coach Raj Bagry after Saturday’s game. “This is big, and the boys played hard. Yale is a very good team, very well-coached, great kids on the floor. “But we have a bigger game coming up in a couple of weeks.” The Panthers trailed by 10 points at the half, and were down by 14 late in the third quarter before a 13-point run had them to within one with roughly eight minutes to play. The Lions regrouped, went 11-for15 from the foul line in the fourth quarter, and held on to their lead. Six-foot-five forward Iqwinder Gill with 14 points, guard Brett Norris with 17, and forward Justin Mason with 16 paced the Panthers offense. Norris earned a second-team all-star selection, while Gill and Mason were first-team choices. All three Grade 12 players earned praise from Bagry for their leadership and play during the tournament. Lord Tweedsmuir, now ranked 10th in the province, among 4A

teams, will await the draw for the 16-team B.C. championship tournament March 1114, also at the Langley Events Centre. “Hopefully, we don’t get a shaky draw to start,” Bagry said with a laugh. “But we should have a good draw. After the first round, it’s going to be a war. Any way you look at it, you have to beat the best. It’s going to be tough, so we have to play tough.” The Semiahmoo Totems will also be in Langley for the B.C. championships after they sputtered to a fourth place finish at the Fraser Valley tournament. After putting up more than 100 points in two victories early in the tournament to secure their first B.C. championship ap-

pearance in 38 years, Semiahmoo lost twice and finished fourth in the Fraser Valley. After their semifinal loss to Lord Tweedsmuir, they were drubbed 103-70 by the Terry Fox Ravens on Saturday. “It’s a little bit of complacency, a little bit of people thinking we’re going to the BC’s so we don’t have to compete as much anymore,” shrugged Totems head coach Ed Lefurgy. “I’m really worried about it, so we need to address that. We need to get back playing loose and playing for fun, cheering on our teammates.” It was the second half that did Semiahmoo in against the Ravens. The South Surrey school led 24-23 after one quarter and trailed just 44-37 at the half. But Terry Fox ham-

mered the Totems for 33 points in the third quarter, draining nine three-point shots for a 24-point cushion with 10 minutes to play. Top scorers for Semiahmoo included first-team all-star Patrick Dujmovic with18 points, and second-team all-star Brian Spanier and Elias Ellison with 14 apiece. Aside from the play of his side, a fourth place finish won’t help the Totems when the draw is announced for the tournament. “We’re not gonna have the best draw so we have to get back to practice and change our attitude a little bit,” said Lefurgy. “We got to get back to what made us successful, and we haven’t done any of the things that made us successful for the last two games.” – Black Press

Study claims savings will offset costs of transit tax By Jeff Nagel Metro Vancouver mayors say their plan for transit upgrades would save residents much more money over the long run than they’d pay in extra sales tax if this spring’s referendum on the proposal passes. A report commissioned by the mayors estimates the savings for a typical family at $360 per year by 2030 in combined fuel, vehicle and other costs, including the value of time savings. It estimates that advantage would climb to $1,100 per year by 2045 versus a base case scenario without the proposed upgrades and worsening congestion as Metro’s population grows. Those are net savings minus the $125 per year an average household would pay as a result of the extra 0.5 per cent sales tax to be levied in Metro Vancouver. Two thirds of the estimated savings are attributed to re-

duced travel time, and money on gas while one third is and maintenance the result of direct because of congesreductions in outtion relief. of-pocket transTransit importation costs. provements – inThe mayors’ cluding a 25 per council released cent increase in only a four-page bus service, new summary of HDR B-Line express bus Consulting’s findroutes and new ings without prorapid transit lines viding details on in Vancouver and methodology.

Bateman called the report “flimsy.� He said it doesn’t take into account the opportunity cost of how families might benefit if they weren’t subjected to the extra tax and could instead spend that money on different priorities or invest it. “The mayors refuse to acknowledge this is a regressive tax that hurts poorer families more than richer families,� Bateman said. He said poor families can’t think decades down the road because “they’re trying to put groceries on the table this week� and added it may be risky for planners to use such a long horizon as well. “No one knows what the world is going to look like in 30 years,� Bateman said, suggesting self-driving cars may end up carrying many people some day instead of public transit. – Black Press

Party bus licensing tightened up Changes are to take effect by May, before graduation event season gets underway By Tom Fletcher Relatives of a teenage girl who died after taking drugs on a “party bus� ride applauded changes made last week to tighten licensing regulations for limousine operators. Transportation Minister Todd Stone announced an overhaul of limousine licensing that will require each limousine or bus with perimeter seating to go through its own inspection and hold a licence. This replaces a “general authorization� limousine licence that allowed party bus operators to work anywhere in B.C. and add vehicles to their fleet at any time. Stone said strict licensing and display of a special plate will allow police to know where party buses are operating so they can be checked. The changes are to take effect by May, before high school graduation events that are a mainstay of the party bus business. Danielle Raymond and her mother Julie attended the announcement, calling it part of the reforms they have sought since Danielle’s sister Shannon died in July 2008 after drinking and then boarding

sure under-age drinking or drug use don’t occur. That’s part of pending legislation in Washington state, where party buses are allowed to serve alcohol to those old enough to drink. Heyman said the government should also require safe drop-off locations for the buses,

which now drop off passengers at bars and then pick them up later to go to another bar. “One of the roles of the chaperones would be to ensure that no drinking takes place on party buses, period,� he said. – Black Press
