▶ SCHOOL DISTRICT SAYS IT WANTS TO FOCUS ON KINDERGARTEN TO GRADE 12 EDUCATION SHEILA REYNOLDS

The post-secondary college run by the Surrey School District has been significantly downsized, reduced to just three courses from the dozens it once offered. Surrey Community College, located near 140 Street and 92 Avenue, has been in operation since 2003. When it first opened, the college was touted as a post-secondary institution that would compete with other inde-

pendent colleges. At one time, it offered as many as 35 different career-oriented courses in numerous fields, including graphic design, dental receptionist, horticulture and photography. There are now just three courses remaining: Education Assistant (EA), Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) Support Worker and Hairdressing. “We’re really trying to realign our work… back to the K to 12 students,” explained Daniel To, Surrey College principal.

He said while the mandate of the college when it opened a dozen years ago was to offer more post-secondary opportunities in Surrey, there are now myriad institutions doing the same and enrolment in many Surrey College programs slowly dwindled as a result. The focus now, said To, is to get back to the core work of educating students in kindergarten through Grade 12. continued on page 4

DEEP

Private career training schools need beefed up oversight and enforcement to better protect students, according to the results of an investigation by B.C. Ombudsperson Kim Carter. She’s recommending a student bill of rights and an expanded complaint process after releasing a 180-page report that outlines numerous deficiencies in how private training schools are regulated. “Gaps in the oversight of private career training institutions leave students vulnerable in a number of ways,” she stated in her report. The report said the career students to date have had “second-class protection” that should instead be equivalent to what public post-secondary students get. More than 300 private training institutions sell at least 48,000 students a year on the hope of becoming a pipefitter, commercial diver, hypnotherapist, health care assistant or naturopathic doctor – among numerous other programs that Carter said form a “significant part of our education Kim Carter system.” About one-quarter of courses charge more than $11,000. Most students are women, many are low income and about a fifth of students are international. The systemic investigation of the industry came in response to repeated criticism about the quality of career training, misleading advertising and an inadequate complaints process, as well as reports of fly-by-night schools that took students money then shut down or went bankrupt. Carter’s findings back up many allegations.

â–ś SURREY COLLEGE IS ACCREDITED from page 1

The three remaining programs may be post-secondary, he said, but directly benefit children and teens in Surrey public schools. The two-term EA program prepares grads to work as learning assistants with classroom teachers in elementary and high schools. The ABA programs also two terms and provides expertise to work with autistic children in schools. Training in both programs includes practicums where college students get hands-on experience in Surrey classrooms. He acknowledged that while other local colleges and universities offer EA programs, having students trained at the school-district run college provides confidence, local experience and on-site teacher references. “The idea is that we have strong EAs that we turn out ourselves and that we put back in our schools to work with our students.� As for the Hairdressing program, To said it has

been kept because it is a continuation of a career education program offered to Surrey high school students. It also allows those who don’t get in to the highly competitive program in Grade 12 to pursue it after graduation. As well, notes To, the next closest hairdressing school is in Vancouver, so the Surrey campus is in high demand. Surrey College is accredited by the Private Career Training Institutions Agency of BC, so students can apply for provincial and federal loans just as they would at other major colleges and universities. Students attending the college pay tuition and the Surrey School District receives no per-pupil government funding. The district would receive any profits from college programs, but for the last four or five years the college has barely broken even. To is confident the new, tighter focus will be successful. “The programs are good, they’re all self-sustaining and they’re all able to service our students and the community as well,� he said.

One complaint probed involved a student who enrolled in a traditional Chinese medicine program and later complained the school misled her into believing it would be recognized. A since-disbanded oversight agency initially refused to hear her demand for a refund because she didn’t file the complaint within a six-month window, but after Carter’s office began investigating it relented and ordered the school repay her $43,600. Carter said other otherwise valid complaints were dismissed based on strict time limits.

Another career school expelled a student on the basis of a complaint made by another student without giving the accused any chance to respond. Carter said students can be left in the dark about problems with a school or program and have few options for redress. The previous industry-led oversight body – the Private Career Training Institutions Agency – was eliminated a year ago by the provincial government, which promised a new regulatory model run by the advanced education ministry. The government has introduced legislation and detailed regulations are expected by fall.

“It will create higher-quality standards for the sector and establish broader enforcement mechanisms to better protect students,� Advanced Education Minister Andrew Wilkinson said in an emailed statement. Carter said in her report the new legislation “unfortunately� appears to address only one of six key recommendations. NDP advanced education critic Kathy Corrigan said while the new legislation provides power to fine, suspend or close schools, it leaves major holes. She said there’s no regulation of overseas agents who recruit international students.

Steve Fonyo still recovering in hospital from knife attack ▶ POLICE MAKING HEADWAY INTO WHO MIGHT HAVE STABBED THE ONE-TIME CANADIAN HERO IN HIS SURREY HOME LAST MONTH KEVIN DIKAIW

After weeks of intensive care following a stabbing, Steve Fonyo is on the mend. On Feb. 13 at 5 a.m., three people wearing dark clothing broke down the door of Fonyo’s home in the 11000-block of 136 Street.

Steve Fonyo

Fonyo suffered a stab wound to the back and remained in Royal Columbian Hospital in serious condition. He had been in a medically induced coma

for weeks but is now awake. Surrey RCMP said the stabbing was a targeted incident and that they are still looking for the three individuals believed to be involved in the attack. Police said they are making headway in the investigation and have been waiting to speak with Fonyo, who is reported to have suffered head injuries in the attack. That opportunity has arrived and the investigation continues to advance, police said. Fonyo, who lost a leg to cancer as a child, was 19 years old when he completed his 14-month run across Canada, completing a one-legged run started by fellow amputee Terry Fox, who had been forced to abandon the Marathon of Hope four years earlier. Fonyo’s run raised $16 million for cancer research. Two decades later, Fonyo was stripped of

an Order of Canada after he amassed several criminal convictions, including assault, forgery and drunk driving. He has also struggled with an addiction to cocaine.

▼ TRIAL DATE FOR SEK’S SURREY SIX CHARGES NOT SET YET from page 1

However, last week, a slew of new charges were sworn against Sek, including six drug trafficking charges, six counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking, and eight weapon and firearm charges. The offences are alleged to have occurred in Surrey between June and September 2014. Three others, Mona Khodabandehloo, Daniel Cluett and Glen Hudson, are also facing multiple charges in the case. Their next court date is today (March 26) in Surrey Provincial Court. During the trial of Haevischer and Johnston, the court heard that Sek led the two, and a third man who can only be identified as Person X, to the door of Corey Lal, the intended victim in the drug turf feud. Sek had previously supplied Lal and Narong with heroin, testimony revealed. The killers (Sek allegedly left) not only shot Lal inside the apartment suite, but the five other men, to eliminate any witnesses. Red Scorpions co-founder Michael Le was initially on trial alongside Haevischer and Johnston, but pleaded guilty to manslaughter part way through the trial and testified against his co-accused. Notorious gangster Jamie Bacon is also scheduled to go to trial in September for Corey Lal’s murder. A trial date for Sek’s Surrey Six charges has not yet been set. Haevischer and Johnston have appealed their convictions.

The Surrey-Nor th Delta Leader Thursday, M arch 26 2015

THIS WEEK’S QUESTION: Do you plan to send your transit referendum ballot in right away or will you wait until closer to the May 29 deadline? To answer, go to the home page of our website at surreyleader.com

Last week we asked: Do you drive out of your way to avoid paying bridge tolls? Here’s how you responded:

Yes 75% No 25%

Lots of promises for transit There is much heat over the plebiscite question, now before voters, which calls for the approval or rejection of a 0.5-percent sales tax increase to fund specific transit projects. However, a statement made by a candidate in the upcoming federal election (which has almost nothing to do with local transit, other than federal participation in transit capital projects), is very succinct in summarizing the current transit situation in Surrey. “It’s just past the horse and buggy era,” says Green party candidate Scott Anderson, who is running in the new Cloverdale-Langley City riding. An analysis of what Surrey has had in the past, what has been promised, and what has actually materialized, shows he is close to being 100-per-cent accurate. In the horse and buggy era more than 100 years ago, Surrey had an electric interurban line which crossed the municipality from northwest to southeast. It went through South Westminster, edged into North Delta, then went to Kennedy, Newton, Sullivan and Cloverdale. Trains ran a minimum of three times a day – each way. The scattered rural residents of Surrey could get to New Westminster, the major shopping destination in those days, in short order. They were also able to ship

and sell their farm produce, get mail and express packages quickly, and in many cases, they even had access to electricity because of the power lines that were needed to supply electricity for the electric trains. In 1915, Surrey had a population of fewer than 10,000. The interurban lasted until 1950. By that time, roads were better (although many were still gravel), most people had a car or access to a ride, and the interurban cars and power system were getting old and in need of replacement. Few foresaw that there would one day be a need for rapid, rail-based transit. For the small number of people who did not own cars, there was still bus service – albeit no more frequent that the trams had been. Pacific Stage Lines continued to offer a modicum of public transportation in Surrey until there NDP government of Dave Barrett announced an expansion of the Metro Vancouver transit system into Delta, Surrey, White Rock and Langley. That service began in 1973. Over the years, the bus service has slowly improved, although many routes have been added and then cut back or deleted. When SkyTrain was first announced in 1980 by Surrey

MLA Bill Vander Zalm, who was minister of municipal affairs and transit, the projections were that it would go from downtown Vancouver to New Westminster in the first phase, which opened in 1986. It would then be extended to Whalley, with another possible line from Vancouver to Richmond. Vander Zalm later said there was a possibility of an extension from Whalley to Newton. That was 35 years ago. The extensions to Scott Road, and then to what is now called Surrey City Centre, came in 1990 and 1994 respectively. Since that last extension was completed 21 years ago, there have been a number of promises made. There have been promises of LRT, suggestions that rail service on the interurban rail corridor (still in use and completely intact) be revived and even a promise of SkyTrain to Langley along Fraser Highway, made by then-premier Gordon Campbell about seven years ago. So we do have bus service in Surrey, albeit limited; we do have SkyTrain into the far northwest corner of the city; and we have had an awful lot of promises.

Let’s make sure transit funds aren’t wasted YOUTH VOICE ▼ Japreet Lehal

By now, you might have had a chance to hear about the proposed 0.5-per-cent Metro Vancouver Congestion Improvement Tax and may have received a voting package from Elections BC. This is a great opportunity for Metro Vancouver residents to make their voice heard through the plebiscite and engage in a form of direct democracy. I would encourage all eligible voters to fill out the ballot and send it to Elections BC by the deadline. Voters should strive to understand both sides of the debate, as there are some groups and organizations supporting the “yes” side, while others are opposed to the tax increase. Regardless of which side one chooses, however, it is apparent the transit and transportation services in our region need to be im-

proved, including public transit systems and infrastructure. No matter what the result of the plebiscite is, there are certain governance reforms that need to be explored, which may ensure more effective management of transportation in our province. An elected citizen assembly could provide input on transportation, which may ensure greater representation and effectiveness. In the U.S., the Office of the Inspector General is able to investigate and take action on transportation matters (http://1. usa.gov/1E0zBsa). Independent investigation capabilities here would ensure that citizens have full trust in the system, and that taxpayers’ money is being spent in a transparent manner. Dr. Kevin Ginnell, a political science

professor at Simon Fraser University, supports the idea of having an inspector general as this “would instill confidence… and ensure that money isn’t wasted.” He would like to see some sort of citizen’s oversight committee. While such reforms are not on the plebiscite ballot, they can and should be explored by provincial governments. Such actions can also be supported by the Mayors’ Council. If the plebiscite results in the yes vote winning, these changes would ensure that the money being spent on transportation and transit is in fact being spent on the right priorities. If, on the other hand, it results in a no vote, then the existing and future funds

How do we bring back more drivers on bridge crossing and save further deficits? Compel government to revise its toll plan.

Otherwise it will be difficult to fully pay off all the costs of the Port Mann/Highway 1 project by 2050. Hanif A. Patel, Surrey

▼ STAY RIGHT, TRUCKERS The rhetoric regarding the left lane legislation encouraging speeding is nothing but a red herring. The left lane is a passing lane only. For those that drive the speed limit or under, stay in the right lane. For those who wish to overtake, then the left lane should be clear. If this legislation does nothing else, perhaps

it will clear the left lane of irresponsible truck drivers who travel in the left lane under the speed limit, blocking traffic, causing driver frustration and creating dangerous conditions. It seems to me that the prevention of even this would rate as high a priority as the prevention of excessive speed. Larry Groat

The proposed transit sales tax – if it passes this spring’s referendum – will apply on all new cars bought by Metro Vancouver residents, even if they’re sold by dealers outside the region in the Fraser Valley, where the tax wouldn’t otherwise apply. The decision by Transportation Minister Todd Stone to charge the tax based on where buyers live rather than where a new car is sold aims to answer the concerns of Metro car dealers, who feared their customers would go outside the region to save the 0.5 per cent. ICBC requires vehicles to be registered based on the owner’s home address to determine rates and Autoplan insurance dealers would collect the additional new Congestion Improvement Tax from Metro residents at the time of registration. The request was made March 3 by mayors’ council chair Gregor Robertson in response to concerns raised about the potential leakage of business outside of Metro. “We share your objective of a fair and equitable tax,” Stone said in a March 19 letter to the Vancouver mayor, adding the collection method will “promote a level playing field for automotive dealers and consumers.” Langley Township Mayor Jack Froese said the agreement with Stone ensures Metro auto dealerships remain competitive with those outside the region, in places like Abbotsford, and the tax is fair to consumers. It follows the same model used by other cities with differential sales taxes such as Seattle and Los Angeles. “We’re encouraged by this,” New Car Dealers’ Association of B.C. CEO Blair Qualey said. “On the face of

it, this goes a long way towards addressing the concerns of our members.” People who live outside of Metro in cities like Abbotsford or Squamish wouldn’t pay the new sales tax, regardless of whether they’re shopping at a dealership in their home city or inside Metro Vancouver. It’s not entirely clear what would happen, Qualey added, when a construction company with offices in various cities buys a large fleet of vehicles. Qualey said it will be up to the new car dealers’ board of directors, which meets again next week, to decide if the association takes any position in the transit tax referendum as a result of the change, adding there are “differing opinions” among directors. “We’ve always said we’re supportive of strategic investment in good roads, bridges and public transit,” Qualey added. “We recognize there’s an issue of congestion in Metro Vancouver and it’s important that be addressed.” He had previously predicted Metro dealers would be forced to absorb the tax, equivalent to $150 on a $30,000 new car, to keep from losing customers to the Fraser Valley. Retail Council of Canada spokesman Greg Wilson wondered if the province would apply the same tax treatment for new cars to other costly purchases, such as appliances. “If he’s going to enforce it on someone who buys a car in Abbotsford but lives in Vancouver, it leaves you to worry they’re going to enforce it on smaller items,” he said. The retail council has taken no stand yet in the referendum. “We don’t know enough to be opposed and we don’t know enough to be in favour,” Wilson said.

Are another million people really coming? ▶ THE QUESTION UNDERPINS THE TRANSIT REFERENDUM’S ‘YES’ CAMPAIGN JEFF NAGEL

Mayors repeatedly say Metro Vancouver’s population will grow by another million people over the next 30 years.

That statistic underpins the entire “yes” campaign case for transportation expansion, so is it accurate? The projection the mayors use is a forecast from Metro Vancouver regional district planners that the current 2.5 million people in the region as of 2015 will reach 3.53 million in 2045. Demographer Andrew

Ramlo at Urban Futures says his firm has its own population estimates and projects the extra million residents will arrive a few years sooner – in 2041 after 26 years, instead of 30. The provincial government’s BC Stats office has a slightly lower estimate of nearly 3.41 million by 2041, compared to Urban Futures’ 3.48 million that year.

estimated increase of one million does not tell the entire story, because the Metro-only numbers ignore population growth in the Fraser Valley, which also increases traffic congestion and transit demand in Metro. “We know we’ve got a good number of people living in the Valley who are working in Metro or living in Metro and

Ramlo says his firm assumes net migration of nearly 30,000 people into the region each year. That’s slightly above the pace of around 25,000 in the past year or two but below recent peak years of 45,000 – essentially on the average pace the region has already been experiencing. But Ramlo argues the

working in the Valley,” Ramlo said. Add Fraser Valley population growth in, he says, and the gain for all of the Lower Mainland by 2041 is 1.22 million and the one-million increase is reached in 2036. “Whether it’s a million people in 2036, 2041 or 2045, we still have to plan for them and it’s the planning we can do in the short and medium term that will put us in good stead to deal with those changes.” Where do all the new people come from? International immigration is by far the

largest source, adding 40,000-plus net new residents most years, while there’s typically a net outflow of several thousand from Metro to other regions of B.C., a few thousand arrive in Metro from other provinces, and smaller gains come from the “natural growth” of births exceeding deaths. Some referendum commenters suggest the region should stop accepting more people. Adding more newcomers is essential to fill the jobs that will support the province’s aging, increasingly retired population, Ramlo said. “Where is your next nurse or care aide going to come from?” Ramlo asked. “It’s not just Starbucks jobs we’re talking about. It’s people’s doctors, people’s dentists, hygenists, your physiotherapists.” Metro cities are not entirely powerless to keep new people from coming here. City councils could refuse to approve any more residential develcontinued on page 11

Surrey has succeeded in garnering some “yes” votes in the current transit referendum, city staff told council Monday. People in the Lower Mainland are currently receiving ballots in the mail, asking if they support a 0.5-per-cent increase in the Provincial Sales Tax in order to pay for better transit. The new revenue is how TransLink will fund long-range transportation improvements. Mayors throughout the cities, including Surrey, have been promoting the yes vote. The City of Surrey has conducted several “telephone town hall meetings” and street teams of city staff are engaging with the public on the ongoing plebiscite. Surrey’s Manager of Transportation Jaime Boan said that during one telephone town hall, there were 12,000 people who joined in the conversation. “The people we talked to, a lot of them are uncertain (of how they would vote),” Boan told The Leader Monday. “Some of them are soft yeses, some of them are soft nos.” Generally, when the public is given more information, staff are finding people are swinging to the yes side, he said. “So, we’re feeling quite good about the impact of getting some of the information out,” Boan said. There have been about 30 City of Surrey staff supporting the initiative to get out the yes vote, with one working on it full-time. Ballots began arriving at doorsteps in March and must be mailed in by May 29.

▶ CITIES HAVE THE POWER TO RESTRICT HOUSING PROJECTS from page 10

opment – Port Moody did just that at one point until a funding impasse was resolved to get the Evergreen Line built. Ramlo acknowledged a new housing ban would be an option for cities, and there may be pressure for no-newgrowth policies if the “no” side wins. He predicted that would slow but not stop the incoming flow of people to Metro Vancouver, resulting in enormous pressure to fit new arrivals into a capped housing supply through means such as many more illegal suites. He also warned there would be a profound effect on real estate markets if all new home

construction was cut off for an extended period. “There would be very significant upward pressure on prices,” Ramlo said. “You think we have affordability challenges and issues right now? In that situation, they would grow at an exponential rate.” Referendum Questions is a Black Press series exploring issues related to the Metro Vancouver transit and transportation referendum. Voters must mail in ballots by May 29 on whether they support the addition of a 0.5 per cent sales tax in the region, called the Congestion Improvement Tax, to fund billions of dollars worth of upgrades.

The Kwantlen Student Association (KSA) will be discussing plans for a new student union building during its annual general meeting on Monday, and the group is asking hundreds of students to turn out. KSA President Jessica Lar-Son said the KSA is tabling a resolution to choose a third-party sponsor to help finance the building, but 200 students need to be in attendance for it to pass. That’s just one per cent of the entire student body at all four Metro Vancouver campuses. The KSA has been planning for a student union building at Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Surrey campus at 12666 72 Ave. since 2009, when a funding fee of $2.90 per course credit was approved by students through a referendum. Lar-Son said the new building will cost an estimated $15 million to construct and will be “100 per cent funded by the KSA.” The course credit fees will be used to pay back the sponsor’s loan (the

sponsor has yet to be determined), and at this point, there is no projected increase to the fees, according Lar-Son. She said Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) will not be helping to fund the building, but KPU is “on board and fully supports” the project. As for students, Lar-Son said she hasn’t seen any resistance to the proposed building or the fees. She added the KSA will be going back to students to make sure the building is what they want before construction gets underway – likely in the next few years. The building will be situated near the campus on 126 Street between two parking lots. Lar-Son said as someone who is graduating in the next few years, she wants a building that will benefit students 20 years down the road. She predicts it will have an “amazing impact” on student life. Plans for the building include room for KSA offices, club spaces, businesses and food vendors. The annual general meeting takes place March 30 at 1 p.m. at Kwantlen’s Surrey campus in the Cedar building.

On July 1, 2013, the man co-accused of allegedly plotting to detonate pressure-cooker bombs at the B.C. legislature on Canada Day nervously paced inside an Abbotsford motel room wondering why the devices didn’t explode. “Those... timers worked until I gave them to him… I tested them over and over,” John Nuttall says to his wife Amanda Korody in an undercover police video shown to a jury Monday (March 23) at B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver. The Surrey couple was arrested in Abbotsford on Canada Day 2013 and faces four terrorism-related charges to which they’ve pleaded not guilty. RCMP arrested the pair following a five-month investigation. Police seized what they described as three “improvised explosive devices” made from pressure cookers. The bombs were allegedly placed on the

The Crown prosecutor has said the RCMP ensured the homemade bombs, which were allegedly built in a Delta hotel, were “inert” when placed in Victoria. In his opening remarks at the trial on Feb. 2, Crown prosecutor Peter Eccles said the couple

had recently converted to the Muslim faith. Eccles told the jury they’d hear and see many hours of audio and video surveillance, which would include conversation between Nuttall and Korody in which Nuttall talks about what will happen after their alleged plot takes place. continued on page 15

Police arrest person of interest in Surrey murder ▶ DONALD SALAHUB BEING QUESTIONED IN CONNECTION TO KILLING OF ABBOTSFORD MAN KEVIN DIAKIW

A man identified as a person of interest in a Surrey murder last month has been arrested in Calgary.

Donald Lyle Salahub, 44, was wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for an alleged parole violation and was sought in connection with information he might have about the murder of Abbotsford’s Michael Amy. Amy, 34, was found unresponsive in an SUV in the 9500-block of 139 Street on Friday, Feb. 27. The cause of death has not been made public. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) said Monday Salahub, previously identified as a person of interest

in the killing, was arrested on the Canada-wide warrant without incident in Calgary on Friday, March 20. IHIT investigators were speaking with Salahub, attempting to determine if he had key information regarding the Amy murder. “As I said initially, we had reason to believe he may have information related to the death of Michael Amy and that’s what they’re working on finding out right now,” IHIT spokesperson Sgt. Stephanie Ashton told The Leader.

▶ ‘WE’RE LEAVING AND NEVER COMING BACK...’ from page 14

“Within 48 hours, we’re going to be listening to the news and hear the aftermath,” Nuttall tells his wife. “This is going to rock the world. Al-Qaeda Canada – that’s who we are. “As of today we’re mujahid. We’re secret agents.” Eccles, however, said the Crown believed the pair worked on its own and doubted Al-Qaeda even knew they existed. In another portion of video played on Monday, Nuttall talks intermittently on his cellphone with an undercover RCMP operator whom he believes is an Arab businessman helping with the plan and arranging their getaway by plane. The undercover cop cannot be identified due to a publication ban. In the video Nuttall becomes increasingly concerned as noon approaches with no news about the bombs detonating. The explosives were scheduled to go off between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. and Nuttall starts to worry that kids may be killed as the Canada Day festivities start. “As long as those kids are okay, I’m okay. We’re still responsible if something happens to those kids,” he tells his wife. Later, he tells the undercover operator: “Those kids, it’s 12 o’clock, what if it goes off ? The timers were fine. I checked them 10 times, you checked them 10 times – they were ticking.” Inside the motel room, Nuttall and his wife fish around plastic bags of clothing and other personal

effects as they decide what to bring with them when they escape the country. They never discuss a specific destination, but as he goes through his clothes Nuttall tells his wife: “Where we’re going I don’t think I’d need a leather jacket. “We’re leaving and Advertising Feature

afe fuel tank design involves storing highly flammable fuel, which means being leak and emission proof. It must include a gauge and be refillable. It must connect with or incorporate a filter and a pump. How it is fabricated and where it is located—all involve safety considerations. The safest location has proven to be out of the ‘crumple’ zone, which means, where the engine is in the front of the vehicle, and in front of the rear axle. Not locating the fuel tank where it is as protected as possible by the vehicle frame and where it is within the crumple zone has increasingly been regarded as an unsafe design because it increases the risk of collision causing a fire following tank or fuel line rupture. The discussion of this issue dates back at least to the 1970s, linked notoriously with the Ford Pinto, an early sub-compact, the subject of law suits, and investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) over the placement of its fuel tank between the rear axle and the rear bumper. Chrysler acquired the profitable Jeep brand in 1987 and the acquisition brought with it an inherited Jeep design placing the fuel tank behind the rear axle. n 2005, Chrysler moved the gas tank for the Grand Cherokee model in front of the rear axle to make more cargo room, it said, but otherwise continued using the inherited design in other models. Jeeps with the inherited design have been reportedly involved in what should otherwise have been non-fatal collisions but allegedly caught fire when their gas tanks were punctured on impact. In 2010, a petition from a consumer safety lobbying group prompted an NHTSA

investigation which, in 2012, reportedly concluded that the pre-2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee was associated with a higher number of rear-end collision gas tank vehicle fires than non-Jeeps and that it would investigate other Jeep models. In June 2013, the NHTSA ordered Chrysler to recall certain models for presenting an “unreasonable risk” of “burn[ing] to death in rear impact crashes.” Chrysler complied with the recall. The ‘fix’ agreed upon was to add a tow hitch on the 1.5 million affected vehicles. Some safety experts and victims’ lawyers say it is inadequate, quoting the deposition of Chrysler engineer François Castaing, the so-called father of the Jeep, two years before the recall: “A tow package does not protect the tank.” (The context of the statement may be important, and is missing here.) Some safety experts and the NHTSA have alleged that Chrysler’s recall has been slow. Chrysler maintains that there is no defect, the vehicles are safe, met all the safety standards at the time of sale, and that the fire deaths resulted from high speed crashes “far in excess of any reasonable expectations” for fuel tank performance. This story is in the news (again) now as details of the above-noted meeting are coming out in depositions related to ongoing law suits, and as the mid-March 2015 recall target date has just passed. There may be “better” and “best” locations for fuel tanks, but no location of a fuel tank will guarantee complete protection against fuel leakage in a severe crash. Fortunately vehicle fires and explosions caused by traffic accidents are and always have been very rare occurrences. If fiery death was a risk worth worrying about for the average motorist, then the answer would be to operate diesel vehicles. Spilled gasoline will readily burn, and when vaporized will explode, but diesel fuel is much less volatile. …by Cedric Hughes, Barrister & Solicitor with regular weekly contributions from Leslie McGuffin, LL.B.

essary use of the left lane. Stone said slow drivers in the left lane are a big frustration, prompting drivers to pass on the right, which is also illegal. The changes are not intended to encourage people to exceed the speed limit in the left lane, he said. Amendments tabled in the B.C. legislature Monday also aim to clarify the province’s roadside driving prohibition law, after court challenges. That law gives police powers to impound vehicles and suspend driving privileges for up to 90 days after a driver blows a “warn” or “fail” level of blood alcohol on a roadside screening device. The “immediate roadside prohibition” program took effect in 2010, effectively replacing most impaired driving charges with administrative penalties, including a three-day driving ban and a $200 administrative fee for those who register between 0.05 and 0.08, if the police officer has reason to believe the driver is impaired.

instead cost $71.50. Walk-on passengers will pay $16.70, up from $16.25 now. BC Ferries President Mike Corrigan said the fuel hedges they have in place should ensure the rebate remains in place at least through the summer months and possibly into next year. He said the fare increases are directly linked to increased operating costs and capital replacements, while any fuel surcharges or rebates flow from fuel deferral accounts. A previous 3.4-percent fuel surcharge was eliminated in mid-December as fuel prices fell. Fuel surcharges and rebates don’t apply on northern routes, where fares rise an average of two per cent. The B.C. Ferries Commissioner this month indicated fare increases will be capped at a maximum of 1.9 per cent in subsequent years, from 2016 to 2020.

Canadian cable TV to go with pick-and-pay JEFF NAGEL

Cable and satellite TV companies have been ordered to offer subscribers affordable basic packages capped at $25 a month and a pick-and-pay system to add more individual channels rather than the larger bundles now offered. Customers have complained for years they’re forced to pay too much for packages full of channels they mostly don’t want and

that even basic cable costs too much. The CRTC gave cable companies one year to offer the low-priced basic package and until the end of 2016 to offer either individual pick-and-pay supplements or reasonably priced small bundles. Basic packages must include all local and regional TV stations, public interest channels like CPAC and APTN, education or community channels, and the B.C. Legisla-

ture channel. Ethnic and third-language channels would be in the pick-and-pay universe and providers must offer at least as many of them as they do non-ethnic channels. “It is about setting out a roadmap to give all Canadians the freedom to choose the television content that meets their unique needs, budgets and realities,” said CRTC chairman Jean-Pierre Blais, who noted

households can also opt for free over-theair TV via antenna. “Each household will be able to find the right value proposition.”

Truck tracking devices coming Truckers will be required by the federal government to use electronic logging devices (ELDs) to track their driving and ensure they stay within safe hours of operation. ELDs are expected to reduce driver fatigue that can lead to crashes as drivers can no longer be pressured to exceed legal operating

hours or skip mandatory rest breaks by falsifying paper records. The B.C. Trucking Association welcomed the change, which was announced Thursday by federal Transportation Minister Lisa Raitt, along with a requirement for electronic stability control systems on all new trucks.

United Way joins ‘yes’ coalition The United Way of the Lower Mainland endorsed a “yes” vote in Metro Vancouver’s transit tax referendum, saying improved transit would offer an

important lifeline to the growing numbers of socially isolated seniors. “We feel that the half-percent tax increase is a fair and equitable way to help people living in the Lower Mainland, in particular, lower-income working families and seniors,” president Michael McKnight said. Metro’s seniors population is expected to more than double by 2036 and McKnight said many will face serious mobility barriers and isolation. He also noted low income working families increasingly must live further from their

The highway expansion project was included in the province’s new 10-year transportation plan unveiled this week. A ministry spokesperson said the province is undertaking a preliminary engineering study to determine the scope for six laning – including whether it will include HOV lanes or not – on the 30-kilometre section of the freeway from 216 Street in Langley to Highway 11 in Abbotsford.

Three Surrey residents have been honoured this month with B.C. Community Achievement Awards. Per Gjerde, Karen Pruim and Greg Timm were among more than 30 award-winners from across the province. The Community Achievement Award recognizes individuals “who have made a significant contribution (to the province) as volunteers or in the course of their work,� according to Keith Mitchell, chair of the British Columbia Achievement Foundation. An independent advisory council selects the recipients each year. Gjerde is being honoured for his contributions to the Scandinavian Community Centre in Burnaby, where, a news release states, his work has “been essential to the centre’s continuing success.� “From his leadership in helping to establish the centre, to its ongoing upkeep and improvement and its programs, Per’s vision and generosity have made a substantial difference in his Scandinavian community,� the awards committee notes. Pruim is being recognized for The Princess Project Society, which she founded in 2009. The Princess Project is an initiative that provides Grade 12 students with graduation outfits. “Karen works all year promoting and collecting donations from her community for the benefit of young people from Mission to Delta who may not otherwise be able to participate in their special evening,� the release states. Rounding out the trio of Surrey award winners is Timm, who is well-known in South Surrey softball circles as the president of the White Rock Renegades Girls Fastpitch Club and chair of the Canadian Open Fastpitch International Championship, held annually at Softball City. Timm is being recognized for his work

Municipal auditor fired with no severance ▶ PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT CLAIMS OBSTRUCTION BY BASIA RUTA

audit council. Former deputy minister Chris Trumpy was due to start his own review of the new office Monday. It is the first attempt in Canada to do “performance audits” by comparing groups of municipalities, but the performance of Ruta’s office has become the pressing issue.

TOM FLETCHER

The B.C. government has fired its Auditor General for Local Government (AGLG), after accountant Basia Ruta “lost all confidence” of her supervisors to complete audits that compare local government spending practices. “The auditor general for local government’s obstruction of an intended review of her office has created an intolerable situation

Oakes said Ruta will not be offered severance pay because the government has determined she has been fired for cause. The work environment in the Surrey office of the AGLG had deteriorated, Oakes said, and Ruta’s decision to refuse Trumpy’s involvement led to the decision.

Hired to execute an idea proposed by Premier Christy Clark in her 2012 bid for the B.C. Liberal party leadership, Ruta set herself a target of 18 audits in the first year. Clashes with the staff at her Surrey office and the audit council began to emerge last year. NDP local government critic Selina

Robinson said the twoyear-old office has lost credibility over spending $5.2 million over two years to produce only one audit. Two more reports – including one on Delta (see story below) – were issued last week. The function should be included in the existing B.C. Auditor

General office, which is an independent office of the legislature, Robinson said. Oakes said she remains committed to the current structure, which had envisioned three audits in the first year and five in the second. It was Ruta who raised expectations far beyond that and then didn’t deliver, she said.

Basia Ruta that compounds the unstable work environment and lack of performance from that office,” said Community Minister Coralee Oakes, who took the action on the recommendation of the government-appointed

Former B.C. auditor gave thumbs-up to Delta

MAKE THE CHOICE. ENJOY THE BENEFITS.

▶ REPORT OUTLINED ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT IN THE MUNICIPALITY’S PURCHASING PRACTICES KEVIN DIAKIW

Delta has received a fairly glowing report from the former B.C. Auditor General for Local Government. Earlier this month, Basia Ruta (who has since been fired) released her report titled “Achieving Value for Money in Operational Procurement,” which focused on Delta. The report examined whether Delta taxpayers received their money’s worth in municipal purchases. “In all, we found that Delta has set up systems ▶ “We found and processes enabling Delta has set it to manage its operational procurements up systems with due regard for value and processes for money,” Ruta wrote in her report. enabling it “We identified some to manage... areas where policies and practices could be with due enhanced to achieve regard for even greater benefits for Delta taxpayers.” value for She found staff tried to consolidate invoices, money.” which would save time BASIA RUTA and money. Staff told the auditors that was not always possible. The auditor combed through 24 transactions and found one case where the city’s procurement policy was not followed. It involved the acquisition of $5,000 worth of sewer pump parts that was not supported for direct award. Staff told the auditor the supplier was the only company that provided the necessary parts.

Let’s make March ‘Open Your RRSP month’ KATHY MCGARRIGLE

RRSPS were all over the news in the weeks leading up to the March contribution deadline, but before we stop talking about

them (until another RRSP deadline starts looming), what if we could get as many Canadians as possible to open their first RRSPs this month? In fact, I’d like to

propose that we make March “Open Your RRSP month” and keep the focus on this important retirement savings vehicle even after the Canada Revenue Agency deadline

is past. After all, while the tax benefits are attractive, RRSPs are not just about tax refunds. And with just 23.4 per cent of Canadian tax filers contributing

Garden Parks - April Openings This April visit two rare garden treasures in south Surrey for a spectacular display of spring blooms: Darts Hill Garden Park (170 St at 16 Ave) and The Glades (561 172 St). Be sure to visit both gardens for their unique collections. Darts Hill is Francisca Darts’ living legacy – a plantsman’s garden featuring an immense variety of mature shrubs and trees from around the world.

Darts Hill will be open every Saturday in April from 11am to 3pm for Saturday Strolls, with extended hours April 25 from 10am to 4pm for the Environmental Extravaganza Open House & Plant Sale.

The Glades woodland garden is home to over 1600 mature rhododendrons (some more than 6m/20ft tall!), azaleas and heritage trees.

The Glades will be open Saturday, April 18 only from 10am to 3pm for a Spring Open House For more info call: 604.501.5050 or email: partnersinparks@surrey.ca www.surrey.ca/gardens

to an RRSP in 2013, according to Statistics Canada, there is room for improvement. To this end, I want to take a slightly different approach in this month’s column by asking financial planners from my financial institution to share some of the best advice they give to customers who don’t yet have RRSPs. They provide reasons why an RRSP is a good idea as well as practical tips to help make them work for you. Financial planner Annie Wong says starting early can make a big difference. “Start contributing to your RRSPs when you are young and let the magic of compounding work for you,” Wong says. “Compound interest kicks in when the interest earned on your principal is ploughed back into your investment, allowing you to earn interest on your original principal plus returns on your reinvested interest,” she explains. Financial planning professional Jeremy Kimm also tells his customers the best time to open an RRSP is yesterday. “When looking at investments or saving for a goal, time is your best friend,” Kimm says. “Even though some goals may seem distant and intangible, start early and make the absolute most of the time you have to ensure your success.” To help maintain your discipline, financial planner Kevin Scarsbrook suggests automation. “Set up a regular investment plan for your RRSP through Pre-Authorized Contribu-

tions,” he recommends. their age. “When you “This will eliminate the are younger, focus on last-minute contrireturn on capital” Lam bution rush, get your says. money working for you “As you approach all-year-long, retirement, and leverage the focus on return advantage of of capital.

No Frills’ grocery store likely for Clover Square Village JENNIFER LANG

Weeks after downtown Cloverdale’s only full-service supermarket closed, there’s word on what will replace it as an anchor in Clover Square Village mall. It will likely be a No Frills grocery store. Barry Holmes, property manager for Colliers International, confirmed the Loblaw franchise will be moving into the high-profile location, ending weeks of speculation and concern from residents, particularly seniors. The Cloverdale MarketPlace IGA – at 15127 Hwy. 10 – shut its doors on Feb. 27, ending 18 years

of service. No Frills supermarkets are known for deep discounts and sell Loblaw’s No Name and President’s Choice brand products. There’s a No Frills location at 15355 Fraser Hwy. in Surrey and another at 5501 204 St. in Langley. There’s still no word on when the new store would open for business. Loblaw is planning to spend several million dollars on renovations inside the building, a project that includes new fixtures and equipment inside the store. A new No Frills typically results in 70 to 80 new jobs, a Loblaw representative said.

Great shopping, farmers’ market, fabulous wineries, beautiful parklands and a thriving arts community, Murrayville has it all. Life is easy and fun when everything you need and like to do is close to home.

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

Murrayville House – your home, your community

W

ith a strong sense of community and a vibrant urban core, Murrayville House in Langley is a wonderful place to call home. The boutique-style property offers a collection of 92 residences and features one- and two-bedroom homes, many with dens, ranging from 675 to 1,300 square feet. The four-storey condominium building offers exceptional contemporary living with country flair, in an established and popular community. The builder – Newmark Group, headed by Mark Chandler – has paid attention to quality, style and detail in every one of the single level suites. They have many attractive features, from the oversized private balconies and patios to the gorgeous, quality flooring throughout the entry, kitchen, dining and living areas. The gourmet kitchens will showcase sleek stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, shaker-style cabinetry, and porcelain backsplash tile. “Buyers of homes at Murrayville have the best of both worlds – urban sophistication blended with rural, idyllic countryside,” says Murrayville House sales director, Vince Pontaletta. Located in a historic neighbourhood, Murrayville House is close to great amenities, boasts mountain views, and there are five nearby golf courses and spectacular parklands. Properties in Langley also offer much lower housing costs – 57 per cent less, on average, than in Vancouver. “If in real estate, the first rule is location, location, location – Murrayville House offers that and more,” says Pontaletta. “People love the area and they love the look of the design of the homes.” He adds: “People are being very proactive about this property – it blends three key elements that are really speaking to potential buyers – an amazing neighbourhood,

a respected and experienced builder, and their dedication to quality and style. This is a great place to call home.” And that’s exactly what Murrayville is: a “home” – not a condo. It is a home that speaks to the heart of what it means to be surrounded by comfort, style and elegance in a sophisticated urban setting, surrounded by country charm. Prices for the nicely appointed new residences, with timeless beauty and lush greenery right outside your doorstep, start in the low $200,000 range – a great value for a home in the Lower Mainland. The Murrayville House Sales Centre is located at 220-230 22196 50th Avenue in Langley. Murrayville House is currently being built and the Sales Centre is expected to open on March 28 and will be available for viewings daily from noon to 5 p.m., except Fridays.

“Playoffs are a different season and anything can happen. We’ve shown that in past years, knocking off higher seeded teams than we were seeded, so anything can happen,” Cox told the Medicine Hat News. “They’re a really good team, we’ve got to respect them and they’re going to come at us hard.

The group more than doubled the current GUINESS WORLD RECORDS™ official record for “Most Bottles Played” “We’re a local company, celebrating our 100th birthday at a local event, but it sure feels great to be able to set a world record,” says Darrell Jones, President, Save-On Foods.

Where the bells toll ▶ ONLY ONE SCHOOL IN SURREY, BERKSHIRE PARK ELEMENTARY, HAS A HANDBELL CHOIR BOAZ JOSEPH

Each Thursday when the bell rings at 2:37 p.m., most students at Berkshire Park Elementary grab their knapsacks and head out the door. But three minutes later, at 2:40 p.m., 13 students get together for more bell-ringing. Berkshire Park Elementary, at 15372 94 Ave., is the only public school in Surrey that has an English handbell club, led for a second year by music teacher Elaine Esau. That 10 students returned from the program’s first year as an optional after-school activity is telling – one deep, protracted ding (or dong, depending on the size) of a brass handbell can be marvelous. “They make a beautiful sound, really, they do,” Esau says. In the school district, music classes are mandatory from kindergarten to Grade 4 and some schools have other music options for older kids. But not normally handbells. Esau says the reason that handbell choirs are Berkshire Park Elementary Grade 5 student Frederick Balanon, 10, plays English Handbells with other students during a clinic led by so scarce is that the handbells themselves are the British Columbia Guild of English Handbell Ringers on March 7 in Fleetwood.

The one thing that should get any buyer’s attention is the new starting price of $22,495, which is roughly $1,100 less than the last model. In

Austin, TX – The latest seventh generation Volkswagen Golf has been a huge hit, winning the World Car of the Year award, along with the North American Car of the Year and several other titles. The effort and billions of dollars, VW invested in its small car platform, called MQB, is at the core of this success. This lighter, yet stronger platform is so flexible the Volkswagen Group has plans to use it for dozens of vehicles throughout the many brands it builds. The benefit to the consumer is a vehicle that is lighter, can use a smaller, more efficient engine and, with huge economies of scale, VW can lower the price. The

Golf Sportwagon scores a hole in one drivewayBC.ca

addition, the base model gets standard 15-inch alloy wheels, heated seats, Bluetooth and a backup camera for a total of $2,000 of additional value. The Sportwagon is sold as the base Trendline, the middle $24,695 Comfortline and the $30,495 Highline, with a $1,400 premium for an automatic transmission and $2,300 more for a TDI diesel engine. Inside This Sportwagon is a true sport utility vehicle. It has the lower, sportier stance of a car coupled with a huge cargo area that would put most small crossovers to shame. The front seats are heated and the rear seats

split and fold. The remainder of the cabin is the same as the regular Golf family, with front and rear passenger dimensions the same except for rear passenger headroom, which makes way for the beautiful panoramic sunroof. The dash has high quality switches and dials and even the base model is fitted with a 14.7cm (5.8-inch) radio screen that doubles as a backup camera. This screen size is a bit on the small side but VW will increase the size slightly when the 2016 model arrives this fall. Drive What can’t be seen but is instantly obvious when driving is the new 170hp 1.8L turbocharged base engine, that is so much more advanced and responsive, compared to the old, less efficient 5-cylinder in the previous model. This engine has superb mid-range torque and it runs on less expensive regular fuel. It’s efficient too, using 9.5L/100km in the city and 6.6L on the highway. The optional diesel, with 150hp, but more importantly, 236 lb.-ft. of torque is only marginally more efficient, rated at 7.7L city and 5.4L on the highway. Considering this engine is $2,300 more expensive, the new turbo gasoline engine will certainly be a sensible choice for drivers that don’t pile on the kms. The gasoline engine gets a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic; the diesel gets a 6-speed manual or the high-tech duel clutch automatic. It’s too bad both engines are not offered with the TDI’s transmissions. Great news for VW fans, waiting for all wheel drive (AWD), the 2017 model will arrive with AWD in the Sportwagon and that technology should spread to the rest of the Golf line. Verdict Volkswagen held the launch event for this Sportwagon in Texas, hoping for beautiful sunny weather but we were treated to pouring rain. With the wipers plugging away and the radio on, this latest Golf feels all grown up, almost “Audi Light”. The smooth power, along with the good feedback to the driver, plus the well-insulated cabin reminds us why this car has won so many awards. The Sportwagon takes all the goodness of the hatchback and shares it in a slightly longer and more useful package. If you are in the market for a small sport utility, give this truly sporty utility a try. zack.spencer@drivewaybc.ca

HELP WANTED

Dorothy was born on March 1, 1925 in Rainy River, Ontario. As a teen her family moved to Surrey, BC where she attended high school at Queen Elizabeth Secondary. In 1946, she married Allan Pawson in St. Helen’s Church and began life as a wife and mother. Dorothy and Al raised their 5 children on 129 St among wonderful neighbours and friends, many of whom attended her 90th birthday party last month. Upon Al’s retirement from longshoring, they moved to “the farm” in Mission and spent 25+ years enjoying life in “god’s country” which they shared with their children, grandchildren and many of the great-grandchildren too. Many memorable summers and Christmas’s were spent together in that wonderful place. Dorothy was generous of heart, giving many hours of volunteer service to her community well into her senior years as well as donations to charities that mattered to her and her family. She was also a keen card player, bingo and yahtzee enthusiast and lover of sweets - all of which she enjoyed partaking in with her grandchildren. Dorothy moved to Langley and spent her last years close to her family, enjoying vacations and time with friends. She attended Christmas concerts, hockey & soccer games, birthday parties and grad ceremonies watching her great grandchildren grow up. She was a huge fan of large family gatherings and especially enjoyed summertime parties at Cultus Lake with everyone. Dorothy was a cheerful, fun loving woman until the end. Predeceased by her husband in 2003, she will be greatly missed by her brother Bill and sisters Delores and Bea, children Phyllis, Linda, Nancy, Alana (Ray) & David (Denise), 10 grandchildren & their spouses and 17 greatgrandchildren. She will be remembered by many extended family members and friends. A celebration of life will be held on Friday March 27, 2pm at Murrayville Hall (21667 48th Ave) in Langley. In lieu of flowers and in memory of Dorothy’s giving nature, please make a donation to a charity of your choice.

The purpose of this application is to request authorization to discharge air contaminants from a fish feed manufacturing plant located at 7721 132nd Street, Surrey, BC V3W 4M8. EWOS is seeking to renew Permit No. GVA0399 for continued authorization under GVRD Air Quality Management Bylaw No. 1082, 2008 (as amended). In addition, EWOS is applying to have emissions from an older, inefficient boiler removed from the permit. The older boiler has been replaced with two smaller, more efficient, low-NOx boilers, resulting in lower emissions of products of combustion. The new boilers are authorized under GVRD Boilers and Process Heaters Emission Regulation Bylaw No. 1087, 2008 (as amended) and, therefore, are not included in the current application. Emission controls include venturi and packed tower scrubbers using chlorine dioxide to reduce emissions of odorous air contaminants.
