TRUCK PARK PLANNED NEAR LITTLE CAMPBELL RIVER

▶ ENVIRONMENTAL WATCHDOG SAYS THE THREAT OF SPILLS AND DEVASTATION TO SALMON HABITAT LOOMS UNDER SURREY COUNCILLOR’S PROPOSAL KEVIN DIAKIW

Phillip Milligan, president of the Little Campbell Watershed Society, says a proposal to create a truck parking lot near the fish-rich Little Campbell River is ill-advised. EVAN SEAL

A plan to build a truck parking lot beside a fish-rich river has raised the ire of an environmental group dedicated to watching over the waterway. Surrey is planning to pave the way for industrial development in the South Campbell Heights area as part of a Local Area Plan (LAP) endorsed by council on Monday. The green space is 245 hectares (600 acres) – just over half the size of Vancouver’s Stanley Park. It is home to a second-growth forest about 100 years old, an abundance of wildlife, and the Little Campbell River, which is a spawning area for spring, coho and chum salmon. The plans are located just south of Campbell Heights Park, which also abuts the Little Campbell River, a project the David Suzuki Foundation called one of the worst examples in the province of salmon habitat destruction from development. On Monday, when the preparation of an LAP for the area south of 16 Avenue near 192 Street was endorsed by counTom Gill cil, Coun. Tom Gill surprised many when he asked that an old gravel pit be turned into a truck parking facility. He wants that done prior to the completion of the LAP.

Surrey Six investigators’ trial postponed another year

▶ FANCY FELINE Judge Alex Marinets inspects Bentley, a fourmonth-old Sphynxcraft cat owned by Valerie Jardine of Abbotsford at the Cat Fanciers of B.C.’s annual Fall Cat Affair at the Pacific Inn on Sept. 12.

▼ MOUNTIES FACING CHARGES IN CONNECTION WITH MASS MURDER SHEILA REYNOLDS

The trial for four RCMP officers facing charges for alleged misconduct during the Surrey Six murder investigation has been postponed again. Derek Brassington, Paul Johnston, Dave Attew and Danny Michaud were charged with several counts each in 2011, including obstruction of justice, fraud, and compromising the safety of a witness, after an investigation by the Ontario Provincial Police alleged serious misconduct by the officers during the investigation of the 2007 gangland murder of six men in Surrey. Their trial was to begin Monday (Sept. 14) in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver, but was adjourned until September 2016. The delay marks the most recent of many in the trial, which was initially scheduled to begin in 2013.

Brassington, Johnston and Attew are no longer with the RCMP, while Michaud is suspended. Six men – four with connections to the drug trade and two innocent bystanders – were shot execution-style in Surrey’s Balmoral Apartment building on Oct. 19, 2007. Two Red Scorpions gang members were convicted of first-degree murder last year, another pleaded guilty the year prior, and a fourth admitted his involvement in 2009. Another man, Sophon Sek, is charged with manslaughter but has yet to be tried. And Jamie Bacon, co-founder of the Red Scorpions, is charged with conspiracy to commit murder and one count of first-degree murder. His trial has also faced delays and is now scheduled for October 2016.

Newton: Third shooting in three days ▼ POLICE SAY SEPARATE INCIDENTS WERE TARGETED, BUT CAN’T CONFIRM IF THEY ARE CONNECTED TO EARLIER GUN VIOLENCE KEVIN DIAKIW

One man is in hospital after Surrey’s third shooting in three days. All the shootings happened around dinner time in or around Newton, and involved people shooting at cars from moving vehicles. At just after 6 p.m. Tuesday, Surrey RCMP were called by B.C. Ambulance, which had received a call for a gunshot

victim in the 7600-block of 124 Street. The victim is a 22-year-old man who is known to police. He was taken to hospital with serious, but not life-threatening injuries. “The investigation is in its infancy and it’s too early to make any connections to other Lower Mainland shootings,”said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann. “We can say that the incident appears to be targeted given just two vehicles were involved.”  Police also cordoned off Strawberry Hill Elementary School and the 7500-block of 123A Street in order to collect and search for evidence after a bullet hit the school. Strawberry Hill Elementary was open as usual Wednesday. Doug Strachan, communications manager for the Surrey School District, said

staff have been briefed to be aware of students who seem to exhibit signs they are stressed about the shooting. He also said a letter would be sent home to parents, explaining what happened and that it’s not connected to the school in any way other than the proximity. Parents are also being advised to let the school know if their child seems affected by the incident. The violence comes after two similar shootings in Newton over the last few days. At just after 5 p.m., Monday, Sept. 15, Surrey RCMP received several calls about a white Jeep chasing a black Corvette in the area of 132 Street and 89 Avenue. Witnesses say three or four shots were fired from the Jeep at the Corvette. No arrests have been made as of yet.

The day prior to that, at about 6:35 p.m., Surrey RCMP received several reports of gunfire in the 6800-block of 128 Street. Police then received a call from a man who said he was driving on 128 Street at about 68 Avenue when another vehicle pulled up and started shooting. He drove a short distance and reported it. The victim is providing limited information. Police do not believe it was a random act, but could not say whether it is related to a string of shootings earlier this year between two rival drug-dealing groups. Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca

“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.”

A

shok Philip Abraham was born April 4, 1979 in Kuwait and was 28 years young when cancer claimed his life on Nov. 23, 2007. According to his family and friends, Ashok had much to offer in life. Everyone he met always found something to learn from him. Although cancer claimed his vivacious life at such a young age, his tender heart, charm and sense of humour keeps his memory alive in the hearts of all who knew him. In dedication to such a caring soul, the Ashok Memorial Foundation was created and focused on helping find a cure for cancer through research and awareness. They are motivated by the loss of a son, a husband, a brother and a friend. They are hopeful their efforts can help protect other families from going through a loss like theirs. Ashok Memorial Foundation is governed by a committee motivated by the same drive to make sure that patients who go through treatment at Surrey Memorial Hospital in pediatric oncology have the best environment and the best equipment provided. Beyond the committee, they have a dedicated group of more than 250 volunteers. The Ashok Memorial Foundation has supported the Surrey Hospital & Outpatient Centre Foundation since 2012. In the first year, with the proceeds of their annual Soccer Tournament, they helped purchase a pediatric glidescope. This machine provides a constant and clear real-time view of a patient’s airway as the medical team intubates and places a tube to assist a young patient in breathing. The physiotherapy and rehabilitation team received a virtual rehabilitation system in 2013. This is a Wii, but is used with a variety of exercise and therapy options designed to improve eye-hand coordination exercises and balance exercises. It is able to recreate the patient’s movements and captures results that

documents their progress and improvements. The funds from the 2014 tournament will go towards revitalizing the intensive therapy room in the child and health care centre. Currently, it’s nicknamed the “dizzy room” and the funds will improve its décor

“Hope is our Cause” ... It is the core for why we strive. AMF was conceived to fondly remember a caring soul. But was quickly empowered by community support to stand for change, growth and a cure for those affected by Cancer.“ -– Asha Kochukalikkal

Ashok Memorial Foundation is in loving memory of a son, a husband, a brother and a friend, Ashok Philip Abraham. He was 28 when cancer claimed him on November 23rd 2007.

and functionality and make it a more pleasant room for treatment. This year’s funds raised will go towards buying and installing sky ceilings above beds in the pediatric oncology unit. During a pediatric oncology stay at the hospital, some recipients of chemotherapy have the drugs introduced to their system through their spine, once received, the kids must lay flat on their backs for an hour or more. These sky ceilings will provide an alternative distraction from the pain, anxiety and tedium of staring at the ceiling and bring a more positive and soothing environment to children undergoing cancer treatment.

“It is wonderful to see a community turn their grief into compassionate outreach to other children and families experiencing the difficulties of cancer care. They are providing hope to thousands annually.” Jane Adams – President, Surrey Hospital and Outpatient Centre Foundation

New Liberal candidate in South Surrey ▶ FORMER COUNCILLOR REPLACES JOY DAVIES, WHO STEPPED DOWN AFTER POT COMMENTS BLACK PRESS

Veteran local politician Judy Higginbotham has been confirmed as Liberal Party of Canada candidate for South Surrey-White Rock in the Oct.

19 federal election, replacing Joy Davies, who resigned last week. A member of Surrey city council for 25 years, Higginbotham served on more than 40 committees, and received many accolades, including Business Woman of the Year and the Solicitor General’s Crime Prevention Award. Also a past provincial candidate, she bowed out of municipal politics for runs at federal office in 1988, 2004 and 2008, but

returned for a run as an independent candidate for Surrey councillor in 2011. Higginbotham was unanimously endorsed by the South Surrey-White Rock Liberal Electoral District Association. Davies resigned following controversy over pro-marijuana views she expressed in past Facebook posts.

▶ TRUCK PARKING IN SHORT SUPPLY IN SURREY “Need,” Gill said when asked about the hurry. “There is a need for truck parking throughout the city.” There are currently 1,300 big rigs parking illegally in Surrey, which impact residential areas and farmlands, he noted. The truck park would allow truckers to wash their rigs, change oil and tires, and would include washroom facilities. Gill said he would insist on the highest environmental standards so there would be no impact on the Little Campbell River. But Phillip Milligan, president of the Little Campbell Watershed Society, is outraged at the plan. “We have a lot of concerns about that,” Milligan said. “How do they keep the effluent, all the chemicals, all the break fluids, the antifreeze – how to they keep all of the oils out of the river?” He said that section of the Little Campbell River is an important salmon spawning area, home to spring, coho and chum salmon, as well as steelhead and cutthroat trout. “The Little Campbell, believe it or not, is one of the most productive steelhead rivers in the Lower Mainland,” Milligan said. Because it’s a relatively small river, any pollutants entering the water could be devastating for the fish population. A truck parking facility on that site could be catastrophic, he said. “That’s the last thing that you want right

beside the river,” Milligan said, adding he’s bothered by the speed at which Gill is advancing the idea. “I don’t know why Gill is pushing this right now,” Milligan said Wednesday. “We have this LAP program that everything has to go in order. Why would one council member be

pushing to put forward a development like this?” Surrey has struggled with a truck parking shortage for years. Gill has taken up the cause, pushing for more opportunities for truck drivers to legally park closer to home. He insists there will be catch basins for oil

and other measures to help prevent a spill in the Little Campbell River. Staff will review the plan before it comes back to council. Eventually the development plan would have to undergo a public hearing, where residents would have their say on it.

The Surrey-Nor th Delta Leader Fr iday S eptember 18 2015

THIS WEEK’S QUESTION: This federal election, are you voting for a candidate or a party? To answer, go to the home page of our website at surreyleader.com

Last week we asked: Should federal refugee loan repayments be scrapped? Here’s how you responded:

Yes 14% No 86%

No pot hotbed in South Surrey It’s been a topsy-turvy week for the federal Liberals in South Surrey-White Rock, with candidate Joy Davies resigning Sept. 10 after controversial remarks she made about marijuana use. Davies has been replaced by longtime Liberal and former Surrey councillor Judy Higginbotham. South Surrey resident Higginbotham has been soldiering for the Liberals, both federal and provincial, since 1983, when she first ran with the provincial Liberals in what was then the two-member riding of Surrey-White Rock. She left the provincial Liberals to run with the doomed Social Credit party in the 1991 provincial election in Surrey-Cloverdale, but has been a loyal Liberal since that time. She has run provincially five times and federally three times, in 1988, 2004 and 2008. In 2004, she got almost 37 per cent of the votes, and was just over 3,000 votes behind winning Tory candidate Russ Hiebert. Davies was a curious choice as the candidate in South Surrey-White Rock Some observers had been suggesting the Liberals had a chance to win the seat, which has been held consistently by the Progressive Conservatives, Reform, Canadian Alliance and Conservatives since it was first split off from the larger Surrey riding almost 30 years ago. Notably, threehundredeight. com, a website which looks at all polls in aggregate, and CBC’s poll

tracker, were suggesting early in the campaign that the Liberals could win the seat. Threehundredeight.com does note its “riding projections are not polls and are not necessarily an accurate reflection of current voting intentions in each riding.” On Tuesday, its website showed the Conservatives in the ascendancy over the Liberals in South Surrey-White Rock. Davies has elected experience, as a councillor in both Tumbler Ridge and Grand Forks. However, she is almost unknown in South Surrey and White Rock. Her most prominent position in recent years was as a founder and former government relations director of the Canadian Medical (Therapeutic) Cannabis Partners Society. This led to her social media comments, suggesting that pregnant women could safely use marijuana and that the Canadian Cancer Society was “another outlet for big pharma.” The Liberals have called for marijuana being legalized. However, the party’s pro-marijuana stance is a minimal factor in South Surrey-White Rock, an affluent riding which has never been a hotbed of pro-pot sentiment. Higginbotham is a known quantity in the riding. She has made controversial comments during her years as a Surrey

councillor, as most councillors who serve for any length of time do. She has been active in the community, has a strong interest in heritage and the arts, and her name is well-known. If the Liberals did have a shot at winning this riding against former Surrey mayor Dianne Watts, who is running for the Conservatives, it would have made sense to have a better-known candidate right from the  beginning. On another subject, I will moderate an all-candidates’ forum in the riding on Sept. 29 at Crescent United Church. It runs from 7-9 p.m. I’m looking forward to hearing from the candidates, although as of last week, Watts’ campaign office said she would not attend. Given that she is one of the most capable and sure-footed politicians on the Surrey scene over the past decade, that’s surprising. Conservative candidates in some ridings are avoiding such meetings. It is up to voters to draw their own conclusions as to why Watts won’t attend this one. The exact words in the campaign’s email to the organizers were, “Unfortunately, due to prior commitments and scheduling issues, Ms. Watts will not be able to participate in your forum.”

Don’t look away from disturbing photos GUEST VIEW ▼

Brenda Anderson

I was glancing through my Facebook feed a few mornings ago – chewing on a slice of toast and scrolling aimlessly past the usual assortment of cats and babies and “You won’t believe how she got revenge on her cheating husband”-style bumf – when I  spotted something that stopped my finger, mid-swipe. In a post, a friend had expressed her outrage at the media in general for having the insensitivity to publish a photo of a three-year-old Syrian boy, whose body had washed up on a beach in Turkey. “How dare they?” Uncaring swine!” her Greek chorus of supporters chimed in. With great restraint, I resisted sticking in my oar. This wasn’t a conversation among my own friends group and I don’t think of Facebook as an ideal place to engage in complex political debate. But silence wasn’t an option I found

overly appealing either – not when there is so much at stake. My response, had I posted it, would have been this: Of course we don’t want to look at that photo. It’s upsetting as hell. But we need to look at it. Alan Kurdi died, along with his mother and brother, during his family’s desperate attempt to flee their war-torn homeland. Oxfam Canada puts the death toll of the Syrian conflict at more than 200,000 so far. In addition, more than four million Syrian refugees are living in neighbouring countries. In Syria alone, more than 12 million people are in need of water, food and shelter.  If it takes the image of small child’s body washed up on a beach to start a meaningful conversation about what is happening to real, flesh-and-blood human beings, then, as sad as that truth

is, the photo needs to be published and it needs to be shared. In journalism ethics classics, we’re taught to weigh what people are okay with seeing in the morning paper over their bowl of cereal against the news value that any given photo carries. Often, it’s a question of degrees of gruesomeness. The photo of Alan isn’t gruesome – far from it. He could well be sleeping. But we know he isn’t sleeping. The photo has been compared to another famous shot – that of Vietnamese girl Kim Phuc, whose clothes were burned off by napalm.  That horrifying image was crucial in putting an end to an unpopular war.

Earlier this month in Surrey, Alan’s story managed to knock the prime minister off message – during what is arguably the most tightly scripted campaign in recent history – to talk about Canada’s immigration policy and our role in the Syrian conflict. As we head toward the federal election, now is the ideal time to let candidates know where you stand on both issues. The only chance we have to effect real change is to care enough about what is happening to demand that change. Or, we can all just go back to our breakfast.  Brenda Anderson is the editor of The Langley Times, a sister paper to The Leader.

The CTF said it combed through TransLink’s latest financial disclosures and found 524 employees with six-figure earnings, up from 434 in 2013. “It’s a pretty hefty one-year jump,” said CTF B.C. director Jordan Bateman, who led the “no” campaign that defeated the regional plebiscite on a proposed sales tax hike to fund a major transit expansion. “This comes at a time when they were demanding a tax increase and crying poor and all these horrible things are happening in TransLink operations because they don’t have enough money.” But TransLink spokesperson Colleen Brennan accused Bateman of “cherry picking” the numbers by focusing solely on the increase in staff that crossed the $100,000 threshold. The 524 six-figure earners represent less than 10 per cent of TransLink’s total of 6,700 employees. Overtime costs to call in front-line employees during incidents like major SkyTrain malfunctions and storms were the primary reason more staff collected $100,000 or more last year, Brennan said. “Any time there’s a service disruption we have to bring in extra resources, put on buses and call in extra people to get them to work,” Brennan said.

Staff pay increases negotiated with unions were another factor lifting salaries. But she insisted those have been modest, senior executive salaries have been frozen and the use of overtime was largely unavoidable. “If you look at the total salary costs all across TransLink, it’s up around 3.9 per cent overall,” Brennan said. “We are watching every dollar very, very carefully.” The disclosures show 57 of the $100,000plus earners are Transit Police officers. The CTF has repeatedly denounced the force as too expensive and called for it to be scrapped. Bateman said TransLink continues to miss opportunities to contain costs, adding it could have held the line with unions in contract talks.

Metro Vancouver has returned to Stage 2 water restrictions – allowing once-a-week lawn sprinkling and car washing once again – after recent heavy rains

helped refill the regional district’s reservoirs. And Metro utilities committee chair Darrell Mussatto said the region may soon return to the routine, minimal water conservation measures of summer. “If we don’t get any more hot, dry weather we could go back to Stage 1 in a week or two,” he said. The regional district’s

latest measurement of its water supply released last Wednesday showed it held steady at 60 per cent capacity and is now in the middle of the normal range for this time of year. Stage 3 restrictions were imposed July 20, banning all lawn sprinkling with Metro water as well as pressure washing and the refilling of pools and

water features. At Stage 2, those uses can resume, but pressure washing is only permitted for health and safety, not aesthetic purposes, and car washing is to be done only with automatic shutoff hose nozzles. Early morning lawn sprinkling can resume on Mondays for even-numbered homes and Thursdays for odd addresses. Stage 3 limits succeeded in keeping daily water use capped at a target of 1.2 billion litres per day, a level Metro calculated could be sustained until November with no rains if necessary. Mussatto credited the extraordinary conservation efforts of residents. “We had extreme stress on our reservoirs this year,” he said, noting the record low snowpack and months of hot, dry weather earlier in the spring and summer. “Our residents and our reservoirs did extremely well. They responded to the regulations and they made adjustments.”

he conclusion of this year’s US Open tennis tournament held in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center has coincided with publication in Canadian newspapers of the New York Times obituary for Irving Harper. Mr. Harper died, aged 99, on August 4th at his home in Rye, New York. The connection? In 1963, Irving Harper was the director of design at George Nelson Associates, the firm hired to design the Chrysler Pavilion for the 1964 World’s Fair in Queens, New York —the sight that today houses—amongst other facilities including Shea Stadium—Flushing Meadows-Corona Park. The Chrysler Pavilion, the smallest of the ‘Big Three’ car company pavilions at the 1964/65 fair has nevertheless managed to hold its own in the history books for its creative celebration of the automobile and its clever marketing and educational messaging. Called ‘autofare’, the six-acre pavilion consisted of a 10,000 foot long, 300 foot wide oval-shaped water-filled lagoon containing five islands connected by bridges and causeways. On Engineering Island visitors could walk through “the biggest engine in the world,” a giant “one-million horsepower” engine with a “writhing, twisting, squirming crankshaft dragon driving three eight-foot pistons.” Giant hands operated the engine valves. Imagination Island was dominated by “The world’s biggest automobile! Nearly 80 feet long and 50 feet wide!” With huge wheels nearly two stories high, the underside of

this giant car sat eight feet off the ground allowing visitors to view from below “all the working elements of an actual car.” On Production Island visitors were transported by car along a simulated automobile production line passing “an area of mechanical workmen and giant quality control gauges.” Production Island also contained a “fantastic auto-animal zoo”: a 12-foot mantis, a 10-foot porcupine, a 7-foot frog and others guarded by a 22-foot zookeeper, all made entirely of car parts. On Operations Island 10 ‘showmen’ statues in an enclosed, semi-circular stage each told a story about “a special facet of Chrysler activities—Space, Missiles, Defense, Amplex, Airtemp, Parts, Chemical, Marine, Industrial Products and International.” The fifth island contained ‘Show-Go-Round’, four separate auditoriums blended into one huge structure, the white roof of which formed a huge ‘Pentastar’, “the symbol of Chrysler Corporation activities all over the world.” Each of the four separate audiences could simultaneously watch a different part of the four-phased performance mounted on a 70-foot revolving stage concluding with the unveiling of a completely-assembled puppet-built “experimental car” designed by a young genius auto designer featured in the film portion of the performance. Interviewed about the Chrysler Pavilion project in 2014, Mr. Harper recalled he considered taking up knitting or any activity that would “take his mind off the stress— something repetitive and soothing he could do at home in the evening.” And thus were born Mr. Harper’s small ‘jaw-dropping’ sculptures made from common materials— paper, balsawood, toothpicks etc. —works of art that decorated his home and are now on display in the book, Irving Harper: Works in Paper by Michael Maharam and Irving Harper, 2013: Skira, Rizzoli.

of this year’s equine stars. Backstretch Day is a chance to learn more about an exciting sport – and a proud industry that supports hundreds of direct and spin-off jobs in Surrey and across B.C., said Carla Robin, a veteran horsewoman who took the reins in March as executive director of Harness Racing B.C., the association hosting the open house. “I think the horse racing in Cloverdale is the best kept secret in Surrey,” Robin said. The parking lot is full on race nights, but Robin is surprised by how many people don’t realize there is live horse racing or that horses live in the barns year-round. “They know there’s a casino, but they don’t know there’s a racetrack within it,” added Sandra Roberts, an owner and trainer who lives in Cloverdale. Both women note there’s a lot riding on the new season, getting underway Oct. 1 after a five-month hiatus.

ARTS & HERITAGE IN SURREY

www.surrey.ca/heritage

Horse racing is subject to the B.C. Horse Racing Industry Management Committee, made up of stakeholders from each sector – the Public Gaming and Enforcement Branch and B.C. Lottery Corp., the horse racing associations and the operator, Great Canadian Gaming. In February 2014, a deal was inked guaranteeing live racing at Fraser Downs for the next five years, but the season will shrink to six months in 2016, something horsemen have been lobbying against. The deal also extends the funding arrangement; racing receives a proportional revenue from slot machines. “We need people to come out to support the racing,” Robin said. “Learn about it and get more involved, and have fun wagering.” The horsemen want to reinstate a 10-month season. “I believe we can make a comeback,” Robin said. “We have to have the racetrack go back to full operations. We have the horses to do it. We have the passion to do it.” The health of the racetrack has a direct impact on local small businesses – from tack and feed shops, and farriers and veterinarians, to horse breeders and even farmers – so a return to a longer season would benefit the community of Cloverdale, too. Robin says the racetrack supports as many as 300 people, and their influence is felt when racing is in session. “If there was more harness racing, you would have a much healthier small business community here,” she said. “This summer, there were no horsemen and their families picking up food in downtown Cloverdale. But when the racing is on, those people have more income.” Both women say a shorter season hurts the industry’s ability to attract new blood – young people and women. And they note more than a handful of current drivers got their start as teens, working their way up from mucking out stables. Backstretch Day runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 19.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper sought to shore up Conservative support among older voters by promising a new tax break for single and widowed seniors if his government is re-elected. The $2,000 tax credit would translate into up to $300 a year in reduced income tax for nearly 1.6 million single seniors who have private pension income beyond CPP and OAP. Eligible seniors could combine it with the existing $2,000 pension income tax credit for a combined benefit of up to $600 a year.

“It is an affordable commitment,” Harper said Tuesday in North Vancouver, noting it will be phased in over four years at an eventual annual cost of nearly $400 million. “It helps the seniors who need it most.” Both the NDP and Liberals have promised to increase the Guaranteed Income Supplement for lower income seniors. The Liberals say their proposed immediate 10 per cent hike to GIS payments would add up to an extra $920 a year for a low-income senior. The Conservatives have sought to portray Liberal and NDP promises as unaffordable and therefore unreliable.

The Liberals and NDP have also pledged to scrap the Conservatives’ 2012 decision to make many future seniors wait an extra two years until age 67 before becoming eligible for OAP and GIS. That change is to be phased in starting in 2023. Both Opposition parties aim to expand CPP, drawing criticism from Harper that their approaches amount to hefty payroll tax hikes. The NDP and Liberals both would unwind another Harper government change they say benefits only the wealthy – the increased $10,000 contribution limit for Tax Free Savings Accounts. But both parties say they would preserve income splitting for seniors. Earlier in the week, NDP leader Tom Mulcair pledged to bolster health care transfers to the provinces with an extra $1.8 billion.

Tories rally business allies ▶ MOORE, DAY STOKE MEMORIES OF B.C. DURING THE 1990S JEFF NAGEL

A leaked Conservative letter to B.C. business leaders is urging them to pull out the stops to fight a

PRIVATE VIOLIN LESSONS

with Laura Chenail Hough • Violinist / Educator A dedicated and passionate teacher, who has spent over 30 years inspiring violinists, beginner to advanced. Her expertise has resulted in much success, for students’ preparations with examinations and competitions, and at the very least, has left them with a lasting love for music. Laura has recently relocated to the Fleetwood area in Surrey, and is available for private violin lessons at a reasonable rate. She is an experienced orchestral and chamber musician, is currently a member of the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra, and works as a free-lancer in the Vancouver area. As well, Laura is a former tenured member of the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, and received a Masters Music Degree from Indiana University and a Bachelor of Music Degree from University of British Columbia.

potential NDP federal election victory that it warns would devastate the province’s economy. “This election will be decided in B.C.,” said the letter from Industry Minister James Moore and former Conservative cabinet minister Stockwell Day. “We could end up with an NDP national government,” they said, predicting the result will be “higher taxes and a broken

economy.” Although neither is a candidate in this election, the two Tories said they will take their message on the road and urged business leaders to work with them to convince voters to re-elect the Harper government and reject the “dangerous policies” of the NDP. The letter also takes aim at Liberal leader Justin Trudeau’s plan to cancel LNG tax

with 50,000 residents forced to leave to find work elsewhere. “Now is not the time for risky experiments.” It echoes the B.C. Liberals’ economy-first attacks against “risky” Adrian Dix that helped persuade voters to reject the NDP in the 2013 provincial election, despite an early polling lead for the New Democrats. Philip Hochstein, president of the Independent Contractors and Businesses Association of B.C., said he hopes the message resonates with voters. “I think the federal Conservatives are right to remind British Columbians about the lost decade of an NDP government,” he said, adding business leaders could be influential. “We have a history under the NDP, we know what it was like,” Hochstein said. “There was, in essence, a strike on capital – people stopped investing in British Columbia.” He said the latest polls showing the Conservatives are running third place in a tight three-way race do not concern him. “The election will be won or lost on the economy and people will make the right decision.” SFU political science instructor Cara Camcastle said the tactic of dredging up the NDP’s record in Victoria may prove less effective this time because federal NDP leader Tom Mulcair has promised balanced budgets and, unlike Dix, has carefully avoided taking a premature stand against proposed pipelines. “The Conservatives are trying to put fear into those who are considering change,” she said. “But after 10 years in power, there will be some Conservative supporters who feel they’ve had their chance.” Canadian Taxpayers Federation spokesman Jordan Bateman said he’s not surprised by the letter. “In politics, you always go back to what’s worked,” Bateman said, but added the strategy is getting long in the tooth. “The NDP did some outrageous things in the 90s. But I’m not sure how that’s a complete predictor of future behaviour. It’s almost 20 years ago now.”

D At what point do I need to contact a notary public or lawyer regarding my sale? E How do I know you will perform all the services that you have indicated? F Why should I hire you? As for payment, the commission payable upon the completion of the sale will be indicated on the listing contract or fee agreement, which

will be arranged between the parties based on the level of services offered by the REALTOR®. Trites says there are a variety of

business models available to the consumer to suit their particular situation. When a sale is nearing completion, there are important details the REALTOR® will execute, including forwarding copies of the contract to the legal representative of their client. REALTORS® can provide a checklist of all items that need to get done prior to moving day, as well as tend to any questions and concerns. “Regular follow up should ensure an orderly transition on completion,” says Trites. “The transferring of keys is usually completed by the REALTORS® involved, and it’s prudent to change the locks and access codes once possession of the new property occurs.” Buying or selling a home is a tedious process made simpler by enlisting the help of a licensed REALTOR®. Much like any agreement, both parties should come together fully prepared with information and questions. It’s perfectly acceptable to speak to a few different agents before deciding on one. While a thorough review of the REALTORS® marketing proposal should answer most client questions, below are some basics to keep in mind before choosing your agent.

The seventh annual Peoples Drug Mart Walk for ALS is set to hit the trails of Bear Creek Park this weekend. The event â&#x20AC;&#x201C; now in its seventh year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is a five-kilometre walk that begins Saturday at 11:30 a.m., though registration and other activities begin an hour earlier. The event will be MCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d by Global News meteorologist Mark Madryga. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a fatal neuromuscular disease that affects the personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motor neurons which carry messages to the muscles. When these muscles fail to receive messages, they lose strength, atrophy and die, leaving the person immobilized. Proceeds from Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event go to the ALS Society of BC to help fund research and provide support for those living with ALS. To register for the walk, visit www.walkforals.ca

Public Hearing – Tuesday, September 29, 2015

Anthony McCullogh of the Kwantlen Polytechnic University Eagles keeps a grip on Alexander Escobar of the Langara College Falcons during a PACWEST men’s soccer game Sunday at Newton Athletic Park. BOAZ JOSEPH

Eagles in top spot ▶ MEN’S SOCCER TEAM TIED FOR FIRST PLACE WITH DOUGLAS COLLEGE RICK KUPCHUK

After the first week of play, the Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) Eagles men’s soccer team is at the front of the pack. The Eagles split two games last weekend at Newton Athletic Park, defeating the Douglas College Royals 3-1 Saturday before falling 1-0 to the Langara Falcons Sunday afternoon. Their 2-1-0 (won-losttied) record has them tied for top spot with the Royals, one point ahead of the Vancouver Island University (VIU) Mariners of Nanaimo. “Early success this season has come as a product of the program doing things right, and the team playing as a unit and for each other,”

said KPU head coach Srdjan Djekanovic. “We are looking forward to a very successful season.” The Eagles hold top spot due to their win Saturday over Douglas. Nawaf Binsaleh netted a pair of goals with Mateo Serka netting the other. “It was a great overall team performance as the team worked hard and stuck to the game plan,” said Djekanovic. The Eagles will play their first road game of the season Saturday, kicking off against the Quest Kermodes in Squamish. They will then host the Mariners Sunday afternoon at 2:30 p.m. at Newton Athletic Park, a game the KPU squad is very much anticipating. “The team has a saying and mindset that we play one game at a time,” said Djekanovic. “(But) we have the opportunity to play last year’s national champions (VIU) and see how

we measure up.” Q The KPU Eagles women’s team finds itself in a tie for third place after three games, posting a 1-1-1 record. The Eagles lost 3-0 to the unbeaten Douglas College Royals Saturday, then earned their first win of the season with a 1-0 victory over the Langara Falcons Sunday. Both games were at Newton Athletic Park. “The most important thing is we don’t want to concede,” said KPU had coach Julie King. “If we do, it’s difficult to win. We made three mistakes (Saturday), and the team knows what they were.” Chelsea Lal scored the winning goal Sunday on a penalty. Other standouts on the weekend were midfielder and Elgin Park Secondary graduate Haley Eburne, midfielder Sam Vegh and Sullivan Heights Secondary graduate Shayla Wilson at forward.

Mom seeks answers ▶ JUNIOR FOOTBALL PLAYER DIED SUDDENLY IN KELOWNA NICK GREENIZAN

A year after Cloverdale football player J.T. Fernandez was found dead in the Okanagan, Cloverdale’s Grace Fernandez is still seeking information about what happened to her son. J.T. – who was a 21-year-old linebacker with the Kelowna-based Okanagan Sun junior football team – died Sept. 18, 2014 of what authorities said at the time were “un-

25

known circumstances” while adding that details would “be released at the appropriate time.” Now, 12 months later, Grace told Black Press she has still not seen a coroner’s report, police report or autopsy results, and “no one will talk” to her about her son’s death. Though she does not yet have the closure she seeks, Grace will host a celebration of life in her son’s honour, Sunday, Sept. 20, from 3-5 p.m. at the Pacific Inn (1160 King George Blvd.). “He was well loved,” Grace said. continued on page 26

Dickson Shirley, Heather Dickison Shirley Heather, age 61 of Swift Current SK passed away Sept. 3, 2015 at Cypress Regional Hospital. Shirley is survived by her parents Bill & June Williams, husband Bill Dickison, daughter & sonin-law Amy and Brian Henneberg, grandson Trenton Henneberg, and sisters Janie Cyr and Gail Crawford and their families. Shirley was employed at Canada Post as a letter carrier for 25 years.

She always had a positive outlook on life and a smile on her face. Shirley was a kind, generous and wonderful friend, wife, daughter and mother and grandmother. She always looked on the bright side, even as she fought colon cancer for nearly 6 years. Shirley was a fighter and she will be missed by many. A celebration of Shirley’s life will be held by her family at a later date. Warren’s Funeral Home were entrusted with the arrangements.

2011

The 2011 federal election resulted in a major power shuffle in Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the incumbents increased their lead while others rose to prominence and relevance, and a once-dynastic party left in defeat, forced to rebuild. Stephen Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Conservative Party won its third consecutive federal election, this time increasing its seat count to 166 to grab a majority government. The NDP, under the late Jack Layton, surged into the official oppositionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chair with 103 seats â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the largest total in the partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history. Meanwhile, the Liberal Party tumbled from 77 seats (in 2008) to just 34, and leader Michael Ignatieff left his post after the election. The Bloc Quebecois and Gilles Duceppe â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who has returned to his position for 2015 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; crashed from 49 seats won in 2008 to just four, losing its official party status.
