Health funding shift costly for B.C. Tom Fletcher tÁetcher@blackpress.ca

VICTORIA – The federal government’s new formula for health care transfers is expected to cost B.C. $256 million a year starting in 2014. The change is not related to Ottawa’s move to tie health funding to economic growth,

which doesn’t take effect until 2018. Before that happens, the federal transfer is moving to a per-capita formula and ending dedicated funding aimed at certain surgical wait times and other priorities identi¿ed in past federal-provincial agreements. B.C. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon said the funding formula change amounts to a

substantial reduction for B.C., while Alberta’s transfers are expected to go up. Falcon wants the federal funding to reÀect aging population in B.C. and some Atlantic provinces, and the extra costs that implies. Federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty announced the new provincial transfer policy at a meeting with provincial ¿nance ministers

in Victoria Monday. Per-capita health transfers will continue to grow by six per cent per year for six more years. Increases after that are to match economic growth plus inÀation, with a minimum annual increase of three per cent. tÁetcher@blackpress.ca

Save our parkade: Downtown merchants ‘No rationale’ to proposal to demolish west end of lot Grant Granger ggranger@newwestnewsleader.com

A group of business owners is banding together to save the west end of the Downtown parkade from the wrecking ball. In September, the city revealed tentative plans to improve connections between the Downtown with the Fraser River. In order to build an overpass at the foot of Sixth Street, the report to council’s Sept. 19 meeting suggested the west end of the parkade, which is the oldest portion of the structure, could be demolished. The report said, as of 2009, only about 40 to 44 per cent of parkade’s 765 spaces are used and tearing the west end down would eliminate about a third of them. Last week, a group of more than 30 people gathered to prevent that from happening. “That’s the end that gets used,” said Harm Woldring, owner of The Wine Factory on Front Street. “There’s a bunch of businesses down here that require convenient parking and two blocks away (on the east end) is not convenient. “We don’t see the rationale that we can do without the parkade ... The one part of Downtown that is viable

is the west end, and you take away the parkade for that part and it goes downhill.” Woldring said the proposal is akin to city hall deciding to block off most of its parking and requiring visitors and staff to park at the Royal Towers. Most of those present at the meeting are members of the Downtown Business Improvement Association, but Woldring said, “We’re by no means the only stakeholders involved in this in the city. There are lots of others with concerns.” He said the BIA will likely hold a town hall meeting in the new year to get area residents and others involved. Although the city’s plans were revealed in September, Woldring said he hadn’t heard much about it until November when somebody asked if he had a copy of the report. He went searching on the city’s website, but said it was hard to ¿nd without the speci¿c date it appeared before council. “How can you plan for demolition when you haven’t done a community outreach program yet?” said Woldring. “There’s no open communication here, and that’s not a good thing.” Woldring said opportunities could be pursued to ¿ll the parkade’s empty spaces such as a SkyTrain park and ride. “There are other things you can do with this parkade other than to say it’s ugly and tear it down.”

OPINION NEWSLEADER’S VIEW:

PUBLISHED & PRINTED BY BLACK PRESS LTD. at 7438 Fraser Park Drive, Burnaby, B.C. V5J 5B9

ADRIAN RAESIDE:

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:

Changing report cards Paper report cards could become a thing of the past and the teachers’ job action is showing us how. For generations, the industrialstyle education system has been ¿xated on producing graduates like widgets and report cards have mirrored this model with an overly simplistic analysis of students’ strengths and weaknesses. Admittedly, report cards have been upgraded over the years, with more comments and a reduced emphasis on grades at the primary level, but overall, they haven’t changed much. What educators now know — and B.C.’s new personalized learning agenda aims to address, at least in principle — is that students have different learning styles and require assessments that are measurable, Àexible, adaptable and motivating. Students need a plan that more closely reÀects their learning styles, interests and goals instead of a standardized set of outcomes and report cards to match. So far, the province has done a poor job in de¿ning personalized learning and conveying exactly what and how it will change B.C.’s education system — and under the current model of labour relations in education, it’s hard to know how this will be achieved. Still, the teachers’ contract dispute has shown there are many ways to assess and report on student learning. Liberated from many administrative duties, teachers are communicating with parents and students by email and telephone, posting information online, sending home records of individual assignments and outlining speci¿c problems that need to be addressed. What’s more, parents are being encouraged to seek out information about their child’s learning. There will always be a need for some standardized assessment and recording, especially for those headed for university, but a piece of paper at the end of term is not now and never has been a fully meaningful record of success for all students.

NDP leader buoyed by 2011 VICTORIA – Here are excerpts from my year-end interview with B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix: TF: There was a lot of cheering at your convention Dec. 10 when federal NDP leader Nycole Turmel said that B.C. shouldn’t have to pay Ottawa back the $1.6 billion HST transition payment. That hasn’t been your position. Isn’t this a mixed message for the public? AD: No. In the federal election campaign, the NDP advocated for that position, and they said that if they were elected, and of course it was the late Jack Layton who put forward the argument that B.C. would not have to return the money, would we have voted at that time to get rid of the HST. Obviously, while the NDP did extremely well in that election, we didn’t win. Mr. Harper won. He says we have to pay the $1.6 billion back and the Liberal Party of B.C., Ms. Clark and Mr. Campbell’s party, signed a very bad deal for B.C. that we’re stuck with. TF: You replaced Carole James this year. At the root of that situation was a complaint about a

Tom Fletcher tÁetcher@blackpress.ca

policy vacuum in the B.C. NDP. I put it to you that that vacuum still exists … AD: [laughs] I guess I can’t count on your support. TF: I’m making a list here. Increase corporate taxes to 2008 levels. Bring back a corporate capital tax and use that to fund student grants. Have I missed anything? AD: In January and February, many people criticized those proposals, especially the one returning corporate taxes to 2008 levels. And then the government adopted, brieÀy, those proposals in May. So I’m delighted that I’m moving the political debate in a positive direction. I defy you to name any opposition leader in any

jurisdiction in Canada who has been as speci¿c on taxation as I have 18 months before an election. You’re going to see our detailed program in advance of the election. At the NDP convention I spoke at length about the key issues of our time, about the things that I’m campaigning for right now, including improving skills training in our province, addressing issues of inequality, addressing the fact that raw log exports are out of control in the province. I get criticized on some days for being too speci¿c and too policyoriented, so I’m delighted to hear your criticism that I’m not speci¿c enough. TF: The B.C. Liberals leapt on your recent statement about potentially increasing income taxes for high earners. This sounds like [federal NDP leadership candidate] Brian Topp’s suggestion of a new top tax bracket. Is that what you were saying? AD: On personal income taxes, I think because the B.C. Liberal Party has continually increased costs on middle class people, for

example, shifting the hydro burden onto residential customers, and subsidizing industrial customers. They’re raising MSP premiums, raising ferry fares, raising long-term care fees, they have speci¿cally gone after the middle class. I don’t think there’s really personal tax room there for middleincome people. That’s my view and my position. TF: So does that mean increasing taxes for higher income people? AD: No. I think what you have to do is ¿rst of all look at the ¿scal situation closer to the election and be clear about that. ••••• The interview also touched on the NDP teaming up with Bill Vander Zalm, and the future of socialism.

Punch McLean sued by widow for valuables Former New West Bruins boss claims it’s all ‘a big misunderstanding’

Legendary New Westminster Bruins coach Ernie (Punch) McLean is being sued by an 84-year-old widow who claims he has some valuables of hers that she wants returned. In her suit, Laverne Sniegocki of Chemainus claims two years ago she gave McLean silver and gold bars, gold nuggets, coins, jewelry and other valuables for him to hold until a good time to sell came along. Sniegocki and her late husband got to know McLean while running a grocery store in Atlin, B.C., where McLean would go after catching the gold mining bug in 1981.

Come in and find delectable deals in store.

Sniegocki claims she sent a letter to McLean in November 2010 asking for the property back, and followed that up with three similar letters in 2011, but got no response. She also claimed to have phoned him numerous times, occasionally leaving a message demanding return of the valuables. The suit said McLean had not communicated with Sniegocki since March 2011. She is asking for the property back or compensation if they’ve been sold, general damages and costs. The 79-year-old McLean, who lives in Coquitlam, told CKNW the dispute is “a big misunderstanding.” He said the valuables have been in storage and he wasn’t able to contact Sniegocki because he was in a remote part of the province for some time.

McLean coached the Bruins, based out of Queen’s Park Arena, for nine seasons, most of them during the 1970s. He led them to four consecutive Western Canada Hockey League championships (1975-78) and two Memorial Cups (1977 and ’78), emblematic of major junior hockey supremacy in Canada. In August 2009, shortly before he had been entrusted with the valuables, McLean went missing in the wilderness near Dease Lake but was found alive ¿ve days later having fallen down a crevasse. It was his second brush with death. In 1972, shortly after moving the Bruins from Estevan, Sask., he survived a plane crash in northern Saskatchewan where he lost an eye and broke his jaw and shoulder blade. twitter.com/@newwestnews

The beleaguered New Westminster Animal Shelter was the recipient of donations of bedding, toys, food, treats and other items for its homeless, cats, dogs and other animals from Loki’s Christmas Wish on Saturday. The shelter was left reeling after an outbreak of a feline virus led to the death of 26 cats last month. The shelter was quarantined for weeks and what couldn’t be sterilized—like beds, toys and cat scratch posts—had to be destroyed. “With everything the shelter staff have gone through, and with everything they do year-round, I wanted to brighten their holidays a little,” said Kristen Neratini, Loki’s founder. “We were able to donate a couple of cat scratch posts and many boxes of leashes, collars, food, treats, toys, bedding and other goodies so they can start rebuilding a fun environment for their animals.” The director of the HugABull Advocacy and Rescue Society started Loki’s Christmas Wish in 2008 in memory of her dog after he passed away. To her, the holidays are the hardest time for animal shelters because adoptions are low and the facilities short on staff and volunteers. Donation boxes were placed in about 40 businesses—the New West drive was sponsored by Bosley’s and Zoomies daycare—and distributed to 21 shelters after starting out with just one three years ago. For more information or to provide support go to www.lokischristmaswish.ca, or email lokischristmaswish@gmail.com. ggranger@newwestnewsleader.com

Owners of the most soot-spewing backhoes, excavators and other diesel equipment in Metro Vancouver must now register their machines and pay hefty annual fees. A new regional bylaw takes effect Jan. 1 that Metro hopes will prod equipment operators to upgrade to cleaner diesel technology to help reduce cancer, respiratory illness and other health risks from particulate pollution. The most polluting off-road diesel engines are classi¿ed Tier 0 and must be registered and labelled with a ‘T0’ decal to operate in Metro. They’re being charged $4 per horsepower for 2012, but Metro intends to steadily raise the fees in the years ahead and expand the rules to more machines. Fees that start now in the hundreds of dollar—for a 100horse excavator, for example—could be in the thousands within a few years. For more info see www.metrovancouver/ nonroaddiesel.

Health agreement divides provinces VICTORIA â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The federal governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long-range plan for health care funding has sparked a an angry response from provinces east of Saskatchewan, but B.C. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon is praising the deal. Federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty presented the new formula to Âżnance ministers meeting in Victoria Monday. It calls for Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health care transfers to the provinces to rise by six per cent in each of the next Âżve years. After that, increases are to match the growth of the economy plus inĂ&#x20AC;ation, with a minimum increase of three per cent per year.

Falcon said he appreciates the â&#x20AC;&#x153;certaintyâ&#x20AC;? of steady increases for Âżve years, and called the switch to economic growth â&#x20AC;&#x153;a reasonable approach.â&#x20AC;? But he is concerned about a change in the formula that will see payments based on population starting in 2014. B.C. and other provinces with aging populations could effectively lose their increases from extra costs, he said. Falcon also called for Ottawa to offer Âżnancial incentives to provinces that innovate in health care and demonstrate they are slowing down increasing costs. tĂ etcher@blackpress.ca
