23-year-old killed by police after domestic-dispute call ends in gunfire

Man shot dead in Crescent Beach A young man is dead following an exchange of gunfire with police in Crescent Beach. Brendon Samuel Beddow, 23, of Surrey was killed Wednesday afternoon following an officerinvolved shooting in the 3000-block of McBride Avenue. The incident – the second police-involved shooting death in Surrey in less than a month – occurred when Surrey RCMP were dispatched to a domestic disturbance around 2 p.m., after a woman called 911. According to Const. Lindsey Houghton of the Vancouver Police Department – which is investigating the shooting – two officers who arrived at the home moments later were confronted by a man, and shots were fired. “The man was shot by police and died a short time later outside the house,” Houghton said. Area resident Marc Hiatt Brendon Beddow saw the events unfold. Hiatt told Peace Arch News he was working on his truck less than a block away when he heard yelling and went to investigate. As he approached a Spanish-style home, Hiatt said he heard police say, ‘Drop it!’ and saw a young man with a gun in his hand. The man was swearing at police and then fired his gun, Hiatt said. Police fired back. “I yelled, ‘don’t shoot him,’” a shaken Hiatt said. “In my mind, he wasn’t trying to kill anybody. My thought was, this kid’s trying to kill himself.” Hiatt said he saw the man fire another shot and start retreating towards the house, out of Hiatt’s sight. After police fired again, Hiatt said he ran across the street and saw the man lying on the ground, with police administering CPR. “The cops were saying, ‘stay with me, stay with me,’” Hiatt said.  see page A4

MP hopefuls Staub and Looye to challenge Hiebert Alex Browne Staff Reporter

With the possibility of a federal election looming for early May, two well-known Peninsula figures have announced they will run for a seat in parliament, representing the South Surrey-White Rock-Clo-

verdale riding. Former White Rock mayor, Hardy Staub, announced today (Friday) that he will throw his hat in the ring as a federal Liberal candidate. And Aart Looye, a keen local athlete and community volunteer, said Wednesday he would be running

He has served two terms as a Liberal MP and is popular in the riding. The riding traditionally splits three ways, but the split has always favoured the incumbent. Dhaliwal won in 2006 with 34 per cent of the vote, when it was an open seat. Dona Cadman has been quite low-profile since winning Surrey North for the Conservatives in 2008 — much lower-profile than her husband, the much-loved Chuck Cadman, who served as MP in the riding from 1997 until his untimely death in 2005. That riding will be a close contest. Cadman won by just over 1,000 votes in 2008, over NDP candidate Rachid Arab. Fleetwood-Port Kells was a close race in 2006, when incumbent Conservative MP Nina Grewal won by just 828 votes. In 2008, she won over Brenda Locke of the Liberals by just under 9,000 votes. In third place was Nao Fernando of the NDP, who is running again. The Liberals do not have a candidate yet. The Conservatives have been working hard to shore up their position among immigrant voters, who used to favour the Liberals by solid margins. This may help them hold on to Surrey North and FleetwoodPort Kells, but Dhaliwal will be hard to beat in Newton-North Delta. It is likely that, when the votes have been counted, this region will once again have sent four Conservatives and one Liberal to Ottawa. Frank Bucholtz writes Fridays for the Peace Arch News.

news Only 11 per cent of merchants opposed new term

White Rock BIA renewed for five years Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

After a year of transition, the White Rock Business Improvement Association now has a five-year mandate. White Rock council voted Monday to establish Bylaw 1931 and designate a business improvement area, after the city clerk reported just 11 per cent of business owners had registered against it. To prevent the bylaw, at least 50 per cent of owners within the designated area – 130, with parcels representing $97,611,551 of the assessed value of land and improvements – would have had to register opposition. “This has not been met,” Tracey Arthur told council. The bylaw passed with only Coun. MaryWade Anderson opposed. (Coun. Grant Meyer was absent from the meeting.) “I simply feel that it’s such a huge amount of money for this city to be giving to a society or a business to do with as it sees fit,” Anderson said, referring to the $300,000

council grant – in each of the first three years, to rise by two per cent in the fourth and fifth years – that will be raised through a levy added to property tax bills. Anderson said that while she doesn’t object to BIAs, having one in White Rock has done little to improve the town centre or attract people to the city. “I don’t think movies and other things will do the job that needs to be done,” she said. Anderson’s words echoed concerns voiced earlier in the meeting, when council heard a delegation on the issue from business owner Norma Eaton. Eaton, who has owned a hair salon on Foster Street for the past four years, said she is adamantly opposed to the BIA, and to being forced to pay membership to an association that has done nothing for her business. It doesn’t protect consumers, it hasn’t stopped businesses from leaving the city for South Surrey and the levy associated with it is just one more cost business owners must explain to clients who question their rates,

Brian Giebelhaus photo

Salon owner Norma Eaton is upset the city has renewed its BIA bylaw for five years. Eaton said. The fact home-based business owners are not subject to the levy only compounds the frustration, Eaton said.

“They have a business licence like me… and yet you don’t include them,” she said. “There’s no sense to what you’re doing.” City manager Peggy Clark said under the Community Charter, including home-based businesses is “not possible.” BIA board chair Ginny Harrison added that the exclusion also extends to bed-andbreakfast operations. In a delegation prior to the vote, Harrison told council BIA members – who approved a new board of directors at their annual general meeting in January – want the five-year mandate. It will provide stability and “really enable the BIA to make some serious plans,” she said. The organization had been in transition after acrimony between two factions led to a B.C. Supreme Court judge dissolving all of the previous boards and calling for a new election. That took place in March last year, after which council put the group on notice with a one-year renewal.

Ties, they are a-changin’ BNSF crews replace railway ties along the White Rock Promenade Wednesday, as part of a project that will see 23,000 ties replaced from the Canada/U.S. border to the Fraser River. The work – expected to take between three and four weeks to complete – worries some local residents, who are concerned creosote in the ties is harming the environment (see Letters, page 7).

eral budget would also help Ridley Terminals expand its capacity to ship B.C. coal and minerals to export markets, he said. Falcon praised the proposed increase to pensions for low-income seniors. “I think when you add our HST refund into that, it starts to make things attractive for low-income seniors,” Falcon said. The federal budget increases the Guaranteed Income Supplement rates by $600 a year for single low-income seniors and $840 for qualifying couples. It adds a $300 tax credit for family caregivers and

other credits for children’s art programs, volunteer firefighters and others, and extends a work-sharing program for older workers. With the federal Liberals and Bloc Quebecois refusing to support the minority Conservative government, federal NDP Leader Jack Layton would need to support the budget to keep Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s mandate alive. Speaking to reporters in Ottawa, Layton said the NDP won’t support the budget “in its current form.” Speaking to CBC television after his budget speech, Flaherty said he will not offer amendments to gain

NDP support. “This is not a negotiation,” Flaherty said. Federal Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff continued his recent theme that the Conservatives are spending too much on fighter jets, prisons and corporate tax cuts to earn his party’s support. Flaherty rejected as “total nonsense” the suggestion by Bloc Leader Gilles Duceppe that the federal government should provide transition funds to Quebec as it examines whether to join the harmonized sales tax. No province received funds before signing on, Flaherty said.

Minimum wage increase overdue t didn’t take new Premier Christy Clark long to make her mark in Victoria. In her first week on the job, she reduced the size of cabinet, took strides toward party unity by giving top jobs to her closest leadership rivals and raised B.C.’s minimum wage. She also eliminated the training wage of $6 an hour. It is time for the minimum wage to reflect inflation and the cost of living in this province, which, at $8 an hour, has the lowest minimum wage in Canada. Not everyone in B.C. is pleased with the hike – to $8.75 an hour in May, then to $9.50 in November, and $10.25 by May 2012, when the minimum rate for servers in licensed establishments will top out at $9. Opponents claim the pay increases will cripple restaurants and small businesses. The “massive” increases are going to hurt the very people they intend to help, as restaurants will have to cut hours to control costs. The B.C. Chamber of Commerce has expressed concern that the minimum wage will increase more than 20 per cent in just over a year. “That is a significant increase in operating costs for businesses to take on in such a short time, and some regions will be more negatively impacted than others,” said president and CEO John Winter. True, but business has been getting a great deal in recent years. A minimum wage increase was long overdue. The rate hadn’t gone up in a decade. Prior to the economic downturn, B.C.’s economy was booming, yet the minimum wage was near the lowest in the country. Meanwhile, the price of housing has tripled in some parts of the Lower Mainland over the same period. Rents are high in many parts of the region, but the minimum wage hasn’t kept pace. The Liberals consulted stakeholders and economic experts and determined that job impacts are minimized when minimum wage increases are done incrementally over time. The B.C. Federation of Labour, which has lobbied for an increase in the minimum wage for most of the past decade, also doubts that jobs are in jeopardy. No doubt Clark’s decision is aimed at making new friends, given the possibility of a provincial election before the legislated fixed election date in May 2013. Surely she has a few more surprises in store – after all, she did promise change.

The sweaters are magnets for stray, waterborne fibres, which adhere with fierce tenacity in the form of tiny fuzzy balls. It took me a whole night of picking off little fuzzy balls to return those sweaters to something resembling their original condition, albeit a size or two smaller. Hmmm.... There was also the issue of the nylon tights. Turns out those don’t go into the washer either. I could certainly see why. When one machine-washes a whole bunch of tights together, they intertwine like worms in a bucket. And talk about knots! I’ve untangled some dillies of fishing line snarls in my time, but nothing compared to those tights. My wife was fit to be tied, so to speak. And then there was a subsequent small incident in which I got some paint on one of my good pullovers. I cleaned it off with a petroleum-based thinner, and popped it in the washer. Well, it didn’t take long for the washing machine – and the entire laundry room – to smell like the wreck of the Exxon Valdez. My wife was so hot she could have set off the fumes in that room. And that, my friends, was the end of my laundry-doing days. In retrospect, it all worked out rather well, I think. Andrew Holota is the editor of The Abbotsford News.

Fuming over creosote use Editor: Instead of pole-walking along our promenade, I’ve had to exercise elsewhere due to the overwhelming stench emanating from piles of creosote-soaked railway ties, which BNSF dropped along the track, to upgrade its railroad from the border to the Fraser River bridge. When the seabreeze blows onshore, the fumes are intolerably overwhelming! Perhaps David Suzuki wouldn’t be surprised, but I was astonished when Gus Melonas, the BNSF railway spokesman, claimed “the work meets environment standards” (Train track work gets underway, Peace Arch News, March 23). Considering the railroad’s proximity to important waterways, one would think the BNSF’s ‘experts’ would have found something more environmentally friendly by now, since all research indicates creosote is cancer-causing. Admittedly, my patience has worn thin after witnessing car upon countless train car hauling uncovered coal and garbage by me as I stroll along the promenade, but we all know it’s just a matter of time before our spring rain washes the creosote down to our sandy beaches (just in time for sun-bathing weather) and into the sea. Taking into account our Pacific Ocean is now dealing with radioactive fallout, it seems to me if the BNSF doesn’t want to show any kind of environmental leadership re: their mode of transportation, then it’s time they stopped using our seaside to transport their environmentally unfriendly cargo. It’s time to get with the (green) program! D.M. Stewart, White Rock ■ Recently, there have been hundreds if not thousands of large railway ties drenched with creosote left by the BNSF in piles along the tracks. I know that the ties are in piles from the marina in Crescent Beach as far as south of 1001 Steps and for all I know may stretch all the way to the U.S. border. It is well-known that creosote has cancer-causing ingredients within its properties and carries a bad stench which right now, sure takes away the pleasure of living on or near the beach and all those great negative ions and fresh aromas. On a windy day the stench is bad enough, but it gets somewhat diluted by the wind, however, today (Saturday) there was very little wind and I felt sick to my stomach when I was near the tracks. Why do our governments – who you would think are there to protect Canadians and our environment – allow BNSF to leave this poison lying around? We have so many kinds and numbers of shore and migrating birds injesting whatever food they can find along these delicate shores and just above the shores dangerous chemicals are now leaching into the soil and naturally

washing down to the foreshore. Why do we just sit by and over the years just let our community be inundated or bombarded with the massive intrusion of this railway and what it is not only doing to our day-to-day lives, but what it is doing to our property values. Brian Lauder, Surrey

Independent voice is best Editor: Open letter To Coun. Helen Fathers: I want to congratulate you on your emergence from the dark side. Clearly, an honourable person of conscience would be unable to condone the methods and tactics used and endorsed by the CPR. Your statements about the value of

independence were dead-on. The municipal system of governance is predicated on seven independent councillors debating issues, without prejudice, then making decisions that are in the best interest of the city, employing a majority vote. This is the democratic principle that was intended. However, the CPR chose to take the city of White Rock hostage and dictate according to their own wants and desires. But they simply are not sophisticated enough to know the harm that their limited vision is inflicting on the city and its citizens. However, it is increasingly apparent to a growing number of constituents. By removing yourself from their ranks you have revealed a level of personal integrity, insight and wisdom that will serve you well in the next election. I trust that the freedom of independent thinking will make

you more receptive to the vision of Mayor Ferguson as she tenaciously peruses what is right for White Rock against the stacked deck of city council and their backroom agenda. Well done and thank you. Marc Burchell, Surrey

No complaints here Editor: Today, I picked up a newspaper and all I hear are complaints. I am 85 years old and you know, I have learned not to complain. I find if you are polite to people and say ‘good morning’ or ‘good afternoon’ or ‘it’s a nice day’ - it works for me. Have a nice day! Ralph E. Johnson, Surrey

Jean Macdonald and Dick Avison work on the results of the homeless count. As a former volunteer at a local dinner program, writer Kathy O’Connor is certain there are many more people with thoughts on the subject.

Homelessness a huge dilemma Editor: I am following up to the article on homelessness in the community of South Surrey/White Rock (On the Brink, Peace Arch News, March 18). There were many support sources mentioned, but there is another one that is highly attended. It is a large community dinner program at Gracepoint Community Church. The number of people attending has grown significantly over the years and is now up to 200 people, who live in White Rock, Surrey and beyond, who gather every Sunday evening for a meal, some worship and socialization. It is run by volunteers (no paid staff) who participate in the preparation, serving and clean up of the meals, along with other volunteers.

The dinner program has been taking place for about 15 years and is held every Sunday night at 5 p.m. at the church. Relationships are built, sustained with help or resource-sharing with volunteers where needed. The program gives the individuals a place to come that is supportive and positive, regardless of the person’s background. Many are facing a variety of life circumstances and I’m sure some people would be interested in filling in the surveys. It’s also likely that some of the individuals would be willing to talk about the subject of homelessness. Hopefully, the right resources will be put into place to meet the ongoing needs of this significant dilemma. Kathy O’Connor, White Rock

Deaf stray pup on mend Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

A deaf and lost dog who dozens of people attempted to help in South Surrey last weekend is now recovering from his ordeal.

Officer in fatal Surrey shooting has not yet been interviewed Kevin Diakiw Black Press

The police officer involved in a fatal shooting three weeks ago has yet to be interviewed by investigators. March 2, the Saanich Police Department was called in to investigate the police-involved fatal shooting of 28-year-old Adam Brian Purdie. Saanich Police Department spokesman Sgt. Dean Jantzen said Tuesday most interviews have been completed and investigators are just waiting on forensics. It is not clear when the formal interview with the officer who

shot Purdie will be conducted. “He’s fulfilled his obligations under the RCMP Act, to report what happened,” Jantzen said of the Mountie, who has been with the RCMP for six years. “Next is to arrange for a formal interview and it just hasn’t happened yet.” He points out informal discussions have taken place with the officer in the presence of his lawyer, and that the officer is eager to tell his side of the story. “He wants to tell his version of events,” Jantzen said. “It just has not been a formal interview.” Surrey RCMP noticed a firearm in the back seat of a vehicle

when Purdie was pulled over in the 15400-block of 16 Avenue, just after 11 p.m. on the night in question. Purdie sped away in his 2006 white Chrysler 300 and headed north, where he ran over a police spike belt at Highway 10 and King George Boulevard. Police then hemmed him in with their vehicles. He was shot shortly after. Jentzen said earlier this month that Purdie was in possession of a modified assault rifle, which was found in his lap, with the barrel pointed in the direction of the officer.

lifestyles Peninsula youth collecting money for relief efforts

Support for Japan grows Students at South Surrey’s Chantrell Creek Elementary took care of some extra business before heading off on spring break last week, raising close to $900 for earthquake relief efforts in Japan. Trisha Neelakant, Lauren Cottrell, Kelsey Mizon, Isabella Michels and Howard Chen conceived a fundraiser March 14 after learning about the disaster in their Grade 6 class. The goal of the campaign – called We Are All in This Together – was to collect $700 for the Red Cross by raffling off $2-tickets for a free lunch with principal Faizel Rawji. The target was surpassed by the end of four days. “When students feel a sense of responsibility for a country that is 8,000 miles away, we know we have instilled the right values,” Rawji said in a prepared statement.

Honk for Japan Two local 12-year-olds have taken to the streets in an effort to raise money for Japan, the country they were studying for a school project when it was struck by a 9.0-magnitude earthquake two weeks ago. Christian Raymond and John Jubenvil raised close to $300 in three days after standing at the corner of 27 Avenue and

BCAA’s top tips on water damage. Spring has finally arrived. With the long-waited warmth comes the spring thaw – and with it, the danger of water damage. Water damage can appear slowly, such as a water spot, or be instantaneous. Either way, it almost always results in rotting wood, mold, rusting metal – and devastating costs. That’s why, if water causes damage to your home, BCAA advises you to act quickly to prevent further damage. Follow these steps to get started:

c. Black water is mainly from sewage and other contaminated water sources. It is highly unsanitary and can cause severe illness. People with compromised immune systems, respiratory problems or allergies, or who are under 2 years or elderly should leave the house. 4. Next, determine the source of the water leak - only if safe to do so. This will help determine what kind of contractor you need to help remedy the problem. It’s important to think safety first – if you have black water, it’s best to vacate the home.

INSURANCE OUTLOOK

1. Locate and shut off your main water supply line to prevent further water from entering your home.

HOME INSURANCE WITH LORI TAYLOR

2. Contact your insurance company first as they can start your claim and send out help get the clean-up started.

3. Determine what kind of water you are dealing with. There are three types of water that have varying effects on your health: a. Clean water typically results from an overflowing sink or a leaky appliance hose. It does not pose a health risk. b. Grey water typically results from toilet bowls, dishwashers or washing machines. It contains some contaminants and could cause sickness.

5. Prop up furniture in the water damage area to keep it off the ground. Also, remove valuables and keepsakes. Avoid taking the wet furniture to a dry room as this could spread the contamination. Last, but not least, ensure you have adequate home insurance coverage. Some water losses are limited in coverage, so it’s necessary to have a yearly review of your coverage needs with an experienced BCAA Insurance Advisor. For more information on preventing water damage, consult your local BCAA Insurance Advisor today or visit www.bcaa.com/water.

Lori Taylor is an Insurance Advisor at BCAA. She can be reached at lori.taylor@bcaa.com.

of the critical resources the justice system needs to function – a policy that increasingly exacts a human toll. Prosecutors worry not just that abused women will go back to violent partners, but also that memories of sexually abused children will fade, their testimony will be less persuasive, and offenders will go free. Families are also waiting longer for the courts to decide matters such as which parent will have custody of the children, finalizing divorces and setting child support payments. “It’s heartbreaking for the parents of children in foster care,” said Kamloops family lawyer Brenda Muliner. She represents a couple in Nelson fighting to regain custody of their children who were apprehended by child protection workers in 2007. It took a year and a half to get a date for trial to decide permanent custody, by which time the kids will have been in government custody for four years. Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond, B.C.’s representative for Children and Youth, is also concerned. “These delays are really tarnishing the reputation of our justice system for British Columbia’s families,” she said. Child protection workers from the B.C. Ministry of Children and Family Development can knock on a door and remove children from a home based on evidence that is often disputed. That power exists, TurpelLafond said, on the understanding parents have a speedy right to challenge the removal, with the courts either upholding it and issuing a temporary custody order or else returning wrongfully apprehended children. Child protection applications are supposed to be heard within three months. But Turpel-Lafond said the average wait in B.C. is more than four months and she’s aware of waits of eight months or longer. “Childhood is short. It’s 988 weeks. If you spend 50 weeks waiting for a hearing because you can’t get a court date, that is just com see page A23

The need for speed may be just as important when youths are charged with crimes. Consequences of actions simply aren’t as meaningful for young people if it takes a year or longer to get to trial, she said,. The victims of youth crime are often other young people, who also end up waiting longer for closure. Provincial court judges have recently signalled family court delays have grown unacceptable and have directed a shifting of court time, which could come at the cost of criminal matters. In other words, even more delays.

‘Life and death’ Even animals are paying the price for congestion in the courts. Family and friends of 12-yearold cancer survivor Max Rose were outraged last month when the man who shot and killed the boy’s Jack Russell terrier puppy Seymour walked away unpunished. The case was thrown out of Campbell River court when the judge ruled the 19-month delay before the case went to trial unreasonably violated the rights of the accused. “It’s pretty upsetting,” father Nick Rose said. “We’re getting a

news NEIGHBOURHOOD CONCEPT PLAN

ARE YOU A RESIDENT OF SURREY WHO WOULD LIKE TO PROVIDE A CITY-WIDE PERSPECTIVE ON NEIGHBOURHOOD CONCEPT PLANS IN WEST CLAYTON? The City of Surrey has begun the process of preparing a Neighbourhood Concept Plan (NCP) for each of West Clayton Area #1 and Area #2, as shown on the map below. For each NCP planning process, a Citizen’s Advisory Committee (CAC) will be established to work with City staff and consultants in developing the NCP. The CACs will consist of property owners in the NCP Areas, representatives from nearby community associations and the Agricultural Land Reserve, and citizens at-large. Applications for “citizen at-large” CAC members are currently being accepted. On the CACs, “citizen at-large” members will represent the interests of the city as a whole, and will observe and participate in CAC discussions by providing a city-wide perspective on the NCP areas.

Washroom facilities along Marine Drive were demolished last year to make way for upgrades, one of several projects that city staff say contributed to $951,331 being spent on consulting services in 2010.

White Rock spends nearly $1 million on consultants in 2010

Questions raised over fees Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

The City of White Rock spent nearly $1 million on consulting services in 2010 – nearly half of that in its fourth quarter alone. The total ($951,331) is about $25,000 less than 2009’s tab of $975,600, and about the same or higher than 2008 consulting costs, the city’s financial services director told finance and audit committee members last week. In explaining a report on the costs, Sandra Kurylo pointed to the city’s “extraordinarily high, large capital program” for 2010, which included such projects as the Centre for Active Living, renovations to the White Rock Museum and Archives and upgrades to two Marine Drive washrooms. The total is after anticipated recoveries from grants and other contributions, Kurylo noted. Still, the amount caused committee members and one member of the public to question if a decision last year

to create a city engineer position will pay off. Coun. Lynne Sinclair noted many of the consulting costs listed in the report were related to engineering work in the city. The engineer’s position – filled in April 2010 – was created with an expectation of reducing the use of outside consultants and the associated costs, she said. “Is there any hope in the future that this is going to transpire?” Sinclair asked. Mayor Catherine Ferguson asked staff to report on whether the new position is working, and if it isn’t, what can be done differently. Ferguson told Peace Arch News she has no issues with how the city engineer is performing his duties. “He’s doing a great job,” she said. Ferguson, too, pointed to a significant number of projects that have skewed the year’s numbers and put “a lot of additional pressure on staff ” in

Q

GET THE DIRT!

My father gave my sister a power of attorney and just before my father died after a lengthy illness, she transferred all his bank accounts into her name. She says that our father told her to do it so that she would have money to live on. I can’t prove that my father didn’t give these accounts to her and he is not alive to verify it. She is also the executor of his will. Can I do anything?

all departments. She believes the 2010 figures are not an accurate reflection of the impact the position will have on costs. “Ultimately… we were advised that his hiring, under normal circumstances of day-to-day operations, (would) reduce the costs of engineering,” Ferguson said. “I think next year will be a better measure as to whether there is a true reduction in engineering costs due to having an engineer on staff.” Council-watcher Ken Jones described some of the costs – including more than $36,000 paid to an architectural firm regarding upgrades to the Balsam, Centennial Park and Oxford washrooms, and nearly $60,000 spent on a city hall feasibility study – as “unbelievable.” “We’ve got a city engineer – what’s he doing?” Jones said. “And this is a council that said they were going to cut back on consulting (fees)?”

Then the new executor (who may be yourself) must take legal action to have the bank accounts declared part of the estate. The onus of proving that she is entitled to these accounts rests entirely on your sister. In the circumstances of his ill health, the onus is a heavy one.

news Caught with guns at border

California man gets year in jail More than two years after trying to bring two guns and a prohibited magazine cartridge into Canada through the Pacific Highway border, a California man has been sentenced to one year in prison for the crime. Darryl Lawrence Little, 46, learned his fate March 7 in New Westminster Provincial Court. According to Canada Border Services officials, Little was arrested Oct. 24, 2008 after guards found a loaded 9-mm handgun and a semi-automatic .25-calibre pistol on the back seat of a northbound vehicle. The handgun was found wrapped in a

comforter and the pistol inside a tool bag. The magazine was found on the vehicle floor. Prior to the discovery, the driver had told border guards he had no firearms with him. Little pleaded guilty last October to one count of smuggling and one count of occupying a vehicle in which he knew there were firearms. CBSA officials say the incidence of firearms smuggling continues. Last year, officers in the Pacific Region – which includes the Pacific Highway and Douglas (Peace Arch) borders – seized 141 undeclared firearms. - Tracy Holmes

RCMP detain a driver after stopping a speeding Chevy during enforcement efforts March 15.

Driver given suspension White Rock RCMP handed a 19-year-old Coquitlam man a 24-hour suspension last week, after stopping a speeding Chevy Cavalier during enforcement efforts on Marine Drive near Kent Street. Sgt. Roland Pierschke said results of a sobriety test determined the westbound driver was impaired, “by drugs, not alcohol.” In a search of the car, officers found three grams of marijuana, Pierschke said. The driver was detained while officers searched the car, then released. He will not face charges in connection with possessing marijuana as the amount found was less than 30 grams, Pierschke said. - Tracy Holmes

Hospitals added to scan probe

604-536-9743 BRYAN’S AUTO

Black Press

A second radiologist who practised at Fraser Health hospitals – this time at Ridge Meadows Hospital in Maple Ridge – is under investigation for inaccurately reading diagnostic scan results. And because he previously worked in the Fraser Valley, the findings of nearly 2,000 additional scans are being called into question at hospitals in Abbotsford, Chilliwack and Langley. “It is entirely possible there are serious conditions that have not been diagnosed,” said Dr. Andrew Webb, Fraser Health’s vicepresident of medicine. The South Africantrained radiologist worked at Ridge Meadows Hospital under a provisional licence from November 2010 until March 4, when a required quarterly review turned up errors in his CT scan interpretations. A total of 407 CT scans read by the doctor at Ridge Meadows are under review and nine out of 197 checked so far have turned up “significant discrepancies” in the interpretations. The reading errors did not result in any of those nine patients being improperly treated, the authority said. A review of the remaining 210 CT scans is underway. And Fraser Health is also now reviewing X-rays and 184 mammograms that were also interpreted by the same radiologist at Ridge Meadows, who is not practising while the investigation proceeds. Because the radiologist previously worked from November 2008 to October 2009 in the eastern Fraser Valley, another 1,933 CT scans he interpreted in that period will also be reviewed. They include 1,158 CT scans performed at Abbotsford Regional Hospital, 679 at Chilliwack General Hospital and 96 at Langley Memorial Hospital.

His second quarterly review while based in Abbotsford turned up concerns in 38 of his mammography findings, Webb said. Two “significant discrepancies” then included one missed cancer, although Webb said those patients ultimately got the right treatment. The supervisor refused to continue to oversee the radiologist, Webb said, so he could no longer practise at Abbotsford and headed to Europe. The radiologist got more training while in Ireland and then came back to B.C., this time to Ridge Meadows. But his new supervisor at Ridge Meadows wasn’t told of the problems in Abbotsford or that the supervisor there stopped dealing with the radiologist. “There does seem to be a disconnect of information,” Webb said. Webb could not say how long it will take to review the more than 1,900 scans performed in 2008 and 2009. “It will take some time to complete,” he said. “I can’t answer how long. It depends on how many radiologists are doing the work.” It’s the second disclosure to rock patients in Fraser Health, after the authority revealed last month it was reviewing scans read by a locum radiologist who worked at Abbotsford and Chilliwack from mid-August to midSeptember last year. The authority now says significant errors were found in 11 patients scanned at Abbotsford out of 170 patients whose scans were reviewed. Fraser Health says all patients affected by the medical imaging reviews are being contacted directly, but anyone with questions specific to their case can phone 604-851-4700 ext. 646617. The Ridge Meadows doctor is the fourth radiologist in B.C. whose work has been under investigation in recent weeks.

NYC waste guru predicts choppy ride for Metro strategy

Food pickup, apartments pose recycling challenges

Including electrical, plumbing & carpentry Call Peter at: WALTON KITCHENS

604-535-4122

Jeff Nagel Black Press

The Big Apple may follow Metro Vancouver both in setting an ambitious target of recycling 70 per cent of all waste and also seeking to incinerate garbage that can’t be diverted. But New York City recycling czar Robert Lange cautioned Metro planners they will face big challenges, particularly in their ambitious plans to enforce widespread food scrap pickup for composting and to get tenants in multi-family condos and apartment buildings to improve their abysmal recycling rates. “An apartment dweller has a lot of anonymity,� Lange said. “I do not want to discourage you. I do want you to be fully cognizant of the challenges that face you ahead.� The director of New York’s bureau of waste reduction, reuse and recycling was the keynote speaker addressing 400 delegates at Metro’s Zero Waste Challenge Conference March 10. New York tried for five years to launch food waste pickup but failed to make it work, Lange said, citing an inability to get residents on board, particularly in apartment buildings, as well as the high costs of collection and difficulty marketing the end product. “The hard part in multi-family is where do you store food waste in between collections?� he asked. “You start having odours. You start having vermin problems.� Gathering all food scraps in green bins along with yard waste is central to Metro’s waste reduction strategy, which counts on the initiative getting the region halfway to the new 70 per cent recycling target from the current diversion rate of 55 per cent. Organics make up 40 per cent of all garbage in the waste stream here, so the strategy to divert food waste to make compost or biofuel looks good on paper. But Lange said apartments often have inadequate space to store recyclables let alone compostable food scraps. Metro intends to ban all organics pickup by 2015 and

New York City has more than 300 waste enforcement officers, some of whom carry guns, to issue tickets to enforce the regulations. to have the ban in place for single-family homes by the end of 2012. Tougher enforcement is part of the plan. New York, meanwhile, has made few gains despite having a small army of gun-toting wasteenforcement officers to ticket residents who defy the rules and put recyclables in with their garbage or vice-versa. Last year, they slapped 56,300 repeat offenders with fines totalling $10.1 million and gave out $25 fines to another 38,000 first-time violators. Lange said it can take months of continuous daily ticketing to get many violators to comply. Even so, he said, it’s tough to deal with multi-family buildings. Tenants in many buildings drop recyclables down chutes and there’s no way of knowing who sent what down into the common bin. “It’s almost impossible to give tenants a ticket for recycling,� Lange said. “And, quite frankly, they know it.� While he said there is no silver bullet to get better compliance, making recycling convenient is critical and probably the single most important thing Metro can do. Despite an apparent “plateau� in citizen’s willingness to be inconvenienced to recycle, he said he believes Metro’s 70 per cent target is achievable and New York is likely to adopt the same goal. New York has just a 17 per cent residential recycling rate – due to its many apartment towers. Metro’s rate is 16 per cent rate for multi-family residents.

Metro Vancouver’s singlefamily homes do better with a 46 per cent rate, but it takes superior recycling numbers from the construction and demolition industry here to pull the region’s overall rate up to 55 per cent. In an interview with Black Press, Lange also addressed the contentious issue of waste-toenergy plants, which dominated Metro hearings on the proposed new solid waste plan last spring. New York planned to put a garbage incinerator in each of the five boroughs, starting with Brooklyn, but that strategy was dropped in the mid-1990s in the face of fierce political opposition. But Lange predicts the issue is coming back sooner or later, adding New York continues to study waste-to-energy options. He doesn’t expect it will be any less controversial than in Metro Vancouver, where the proposed solid waste plan awaiting approval by the province would allow increased garbage incineration despite vocal protests from opponents, particularly in the Fraser Valley. Lange has also looked at more modern waste-to-energy technologies, which are touted by proponents as much less polluting than traditional massburn incinerators like Metro’s existing burner in Burnaby. But he said such technologies are unproven at handling anything more than 500 tonnes of garbage per day – a tiny fraction of the 11,000 tonnes per day New Yorkers toss out.

The public is invited to attend a Public Open House to provide all interested parties with an opportunity to view and comment on the three locations selected as options for locating a new South Surrey Satellite Works Yard site.

Arts Reporter

t was something he didn’t anticipate when he wrote From Cairo To Cairo. South Surrey author and world traveller Kieran Nelson admits he was taken by surprise by the recent revolutionary turn of events among Arab nations – including the relatively peaceful overthrow of the Mubarek regime in Egypt and the current violent rebellion in Libya. His experiences travelling through the Middle East in late 2007 – the basis of From Cairo To Cairo, a fascinating and uncompromising travel memoir – had suggested the status quo in that part of the world would be a long time changing. ❝This book is “I didn’t see this coming – I really didn’t, an example of although I believe I saw some of the how I taught frustration among the youth and other myself to write political groups in Egypt.” But Nelson said it’s an illustration of the – to find the barometric accuracy of one of his passions sort of voice I – economic history. ❞ wanted. All of the affected nations have shown tremendous recent growth in gross domestic Kieran Nelson product, he said. author “It’s the classic idea of rising expectations among the people, which has occurred in all of the revolutionary situations – including France, Ireland and Russia.” The economic crisis that stopped expectations from rising was likely the tipping point for Egypt, he added. “People started to find fault.” The Elgin Park Secondary grad – who earned his masters degree in global history at the London School of Economics after gaining a bachelor’s degree in philosophy at UVic – said economic history can often paint a truer picture of the causes of events than conventional history, which often exhibits the bias of the victors of successive wars. “Economic history is a way of looking at history in a more objective way than most people do,” he said.

Objectivity is important to Nelson, who said his eventual goal – after he writes some more travel books – is to become a professor of economic history at a university, most likely in the U.K. He’s part of a new, younger, electronics-savvy generation of travel writers, bloggers and filmmakers who, rather than accepting mass-media accounts of other cultures, are keen to investigate for themselves. Funded by savings accrued doing summer construction work in the Yukon, he was able to spend months following graduation from UVic exploring the Middle East with his younger sister, Kristen, and two friends, schoolmate Sean and documentary filmmaker, Nickie. As he writes in From Cairo To Cairo, they found themselves among “hundreds of young travelers streaming in from the West, lured by a profound fascination with the Middle East: with the depth of its conflict, with the antiquity of its civilization, with the power and allure of its faith.” The book, published by Calgarybased Bayeux Arts, recounts their experiences in Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Israel and Palestine. While it started life as an as-ithappened blog, it has been reshaped by Nelson with the benefit of experience, and some hindsight. “This book is an example of how I taught myself to write – to find the sort of voice I wanted,” said Nelson, who is now at work on a second tome recounting  see page A35

Author found spiritual inspiration  from page A33 travel experiences in eastern Europe. While his fascination with economics might suggest a tale as dry as desert dust – that’s far from the truth of From Cairo To Cairo, a highly-readable book teeming with richly observed anecdotes of fleeing refugees, militia groups, Syrian opposition members on the run, immigrant soldiers and victims of torture, and other young people, like a Egyptian woman, Nermine, who challenged all his cultural preconceptions. Nelson titles one chapter Innocents Abroad in a nod to Mark Twain – but it also conveys the relative inexperience of the travellers, particularly in that corner of the world. That they didn’t retain their innocence long is clear from the book’s share of hair-raising episodes, including being interrogated by the Hezbollah after straying, unaware, into forbidden territory, and being shot at and tear-gassed by Israeli troops. “Citizen journalism can be an amazing experience to go through,” Nelson said.

Argentine tango

It first appeared in the dance halls and brothels of Buenos Aires around 1880 – and it wasn’t even considered socially acceptable in Argentina until after it became a craze in Europe just before the First World War. But authentic Argentine tango – a distinctly different dance from the ballroom tango – has lost none of its passionate mystery and beauty. It’s also hotter than ever – thanks to exposure on such toprated television shows as Dancing With The Stars. Now Portal a Tango Dance Entertainment offers White Rock residents the chance to learn to dance Argentine tango with an ongoing series of beginner and intermediate lessons at Ocean Park Hall, 1577 128 St. Owned and operated by husband and wife team Bobbi and Patricia Lusic, Portal a Tango “works to promote Argentine tango as a healthy means for individual expression, improving quality of life and experiencing joy through music and dance.” For more information, call 778-773-9904 or visit www.portalatango. com

Surrey must win three straight to win best-of-seven BCHL series

Eagles lose triple-OT thriller to Kings Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The Surrey Eagles find themselves in a precarious position – just one game away from playoff elimination – after dropping a 2-1 triple-overtime thriller to the Powell River Kings Tuesday night at South Surrey Arena. The two BC Hockey League clubs matched each other goal for goal, save for save and nearly shot for shot – the Kings outshot the Eagles 68-64 – but Powell River’s Steven Schmidt deflected a point shot from teammate Justin Dasilva 4:52 into the third OT frame to send his club home with the victory, and a stranglehold on the series. “It’s tough - it was probably our best game of the series, even though we lost,” said Eagles head coach Matt Erhart. “We had our chances to win it, too – in overtime and also earlier. We had 17 shots in the third period, had pucks rolling through the crease, goal❝It was ies making saves… it just probably our wasn’t meant to be.” best game of Surrey now trails the the series, top-seeded Kings 3-1 in even though the best-of-seven Coastal Conference finals; Game 5 we lost.❞ was played in Powell River Matt Erhart Thursday night after press Eagles coach deadline. Powell River got on the board first Tuesday, when Chad Niddery scored on the power play, but Eagles forward Brandon Morley tied the game just over four minutes later with an unassisted tally of his own. For the next four periods, each team’s offence was stymied by the goaltending of Powell River’s Michael Garteig and Surrey’s Karel St. Laurent. The two veteran keepers combined to make 129 saves in the contest, and it was fitting, Erhart said, that it took a deflection to finally end the game. “It was a real battle right to the end, and it makes sense that it was a redirected shot that finally beat Karel, because nothing was going to beat him straight on,” the coach said. “He was just spectacular for us. He has been that way all series – all playoffs, really.” If the Eagles force Game 6, it will be played tonight (Friday) in South Surrey. An Eagles loss Thursday, and the Kings move on to

BCHL finals to battle either the Salmon Arm Silverbacks or Vernon Vipers, who are currently tied 2-2 in their Interior Conference final. Though it will take three straight victories to advance past the Kings, Erhart insisted his players are still confident they could make it happen. And if they need proof that it’s possible, they needn’t look any further than their opponents, as the Kings battled back from

a 3-1 deficit to beat the Victoria Grizzlies in the previous round. “Game 4 is always a tough one to lose. If you lose the first or second, you know it’s early and it’s (easier) to come back, but we have a very confident, very resilient group,” Erhart said. “We know we can do it, and we’re ready to play some desperate hockey.” The Eagles’ game plan doesn’t need to change either, Erhart added, pointing to the

fact that every game has been decided by one goal, save for Game 1 when a Kings’ emptynetter with three seconds left stretched the margin of victory to two. “Sure we’d love to be up 3-1 or tied 2-2, but every game of this series has been close. It’s just one of those things… maybe if we get a break or two, things will change,” he said. “But the game plan for us is the same – we just have to keep putting ourselves in a position to win.”

Hoops teams finish with wins Rick Kupchuk Black Press

Eliminated from championship contention in the second round, two Surrey schools made the most of their stay at the B.C. High School AAA Senior Boys Basketball Championships, each playing three more games in consolation play. The Tamanawis Wildcats won two of their last three games, finishing their second-ever trip to the provincial tournament with a 3-2 (won-lost) record. The Wildcats defeated the Argyle Pipers of North Vancouver 76-66 Thursday afternoon at the Langley Events Centre, with four players scoring in double digits. Satvir Sahota topped all scorers with 20 points, with Gagan Sahota (16 points), Ravjot Dhaliwal (14) and Manjodh Dulay (12) also contributing. The Sir Charles Tupper Tigers held the Wildcats to just 11 points in the second and third quarters combined, and went on to a 67-33 victory over Tamanawis Friday. Tamanawis concluded their tournament Saturday morning by topping the Oak Bay Bays 89-77, paced by a 25-point game from Satvir Sahota and a 22-point effort from Gagan Sahota. Dhaliwal added 18 points and Dulay netted 13. Later in the day, the Wildcats were named the Most Sportsmanlike Team at the 20-team tourna-

First, was a two-month “working holiday” in Australia, and now the 27-year-old cyclist is focused on two more big events – Pan-Am trials, slated for Los Angeles this spring, and should he qualify, the Pan-Am Games themselves, which are Nick Greenizan photo to be held this October in Jamie Shankland is training for Pan-Am trials later this spring.

and BUILDERS Homeowners have a new tool at their fingertips to help them better understand how warranty providers evaluate claims for possible design, labour or material defects in new homes. The Residential Construction Performance Guide is the newest online resource available on the Homeowner Protection Office website at www.hpo.bc.ca. It explains how homes covered by home warranty insurance should perform. Every new home built for sale by a licensed residential builder in B.C. is protected by mandatory third-party home warranty insurance. It’s the strongest system of construction defect insurance in Canada. ““For most consumers, buying a new home is one of the largest financial investments they will make. So it’s essential that homebuyers can make that investment with confidence, knowing that they will not be faced with additional expenses to repair defects after they move in,” said Tony Gioventu, executive director of the Condominium Home Owners’ Association and an advocate for consumer protection. This simple, practical guide is easy to use. It outlines more than 200 possible defects that are searchable online. This includes the most common defect claims that might be submitted under a home warranty insurance policy – from windows that malfunction, to driveway or interior concrete floors that have cracked, to siding that has buckled. Designed primarily for conventional low-rise, wood-frame homes, the guide also provides some helpful guidelines for the common property of multi-unit buildings. Builders can also use the guide to help ensure that they deliver high performance homes.

Buyers line up in Richmond. Lineups of eager homebuyers aren’t anything new for Polygon Homes – they’ve experienced several queues of excited purchasers at their new projects throughout Metro Vancouver in recent months. “Each one seems to build on the success of the last,” says Polygon’s Ralph Archibald. Homebuyers were lining up again on the weekend for the chance to purchase a Polygon home. The lineups started early in the morning at Mayfair Place, Polygon Homes’ latest offering in Richmond’s Alexandra Gardens. The project offers one-, twoand three-bedroom apartment residences; in the initial release of 60 homes, however, units ranged from 780 square feet to 1,000 sq. ft. in two-bedroom plans. Of the 60 homes released, 51 were sold; Polygon is preparing to release the second building in the next few weeks. “We are so pleased to have another strong opening in the Alexandra Gardens neighbourhood,” says Polygon senior

vice-president of sales and marketing Ralph Archibald. “This is our fifth community there in the past few years and each one seems to build on the success of the last.” Polygon has also recently had lineups at its new communities in Coquitlam, UBC and Abbotsford.

‘The really cool thing about Victoria Hill is that it’s a community within a community’

Location and views: The Grove

L

iving in Onni’s Victoria Hill community is fantastic, says one resident. “It feels safe here ... the views are wonderful,” says Tanya Maglio. TRICIA LESLIE

It’s the oldest city in Western Canada. Yet it’s also a growing, expanding municipality with plenty to offer potential future residents, such as new homes in a location that is central in Metro Vancouver. New Westminster, also known as the Royal City, was established in the 1850s and was British Columbia’s first capital. It survived through the devastating 1898 fire and has continued to thrive and grow into the dynamic and diverse city it is today. Onni’s master-planned community, Victoria Hill, is taking shape not far from Queen’s Park, Columbia Street, Royal Avenue and McBride Boulevard, a community that blends distinct yet cohesive neighbourhoods, including landmark towers, townhomes, lowrise residences and communal shops and services – all surrounded with a lush, park-like setting. Onni’s latest, The Grove, offers new lowrise condo residences in the heart of the Victoria Hill community that range in size from 650 square feet to 1,485 sq. ft. Every home has a balcony or patio; some are upwards of 200 sq. ft., notes Onni sales manager Nick Belmar. “There’s some outdoor space for everyone,” he says. “The really cool thing about Victoria Hill is that it’s a community within a community ... there’s a lot of seclusion because of the trees.” There’s more than 100 species of old-growth trees onsite, Belmar says, and a pedestrian overpass into Queen’s Park allows Victoria Hill residents easy access. The proximity to more than 40 acres of preserved

Homes at Onni’s The Grove, located in the master-planned New Westminster community of Victoria Hill, start from $259,900.

green space, major transportation routes and to all the city’s amenities are attracting homebuyers of all ages to The Grove from all over Metro Vancouver, Belmar says, from first-time buyers to step-up buyers to downsizers. Victoria Hill resident Tanya Maglio has been living in the community for three years and says she loves it. “The views are great. We don’t feel like we’re on a busy street because there’s so much green space, and everything we need is a two to five-minute drive away,” she says, and notes she and her family and friends use the community’s trails, which connect to the Central Valley Greenway system, all the time. “It feels safe here. The views are wonderful and we have our own amenities centre with a theatre, gym and boardroom that people use all the time.” Outside, The Grove is a mix of traditional Craftsman and West Coast flavour, while nine-foot ceilings – some

vaulted – maximize each home’s living space. Gourmet kitchens, stainless steel appliances and granite countertops add to the attraction for homebuyers, as well as the prices. “It’s not only the central location and the quality of construction,” Belmar says. “It’s the great value they get.” Homes at The Grove start from $259,900.

ILLEGAL DUMPING / ABANDONED WASTE

Illegal dumping is a serious and growing problem in Surrey. Abandoned garbage is not only an eyesore but it impacts our City in many negative ways. Illegally dumped material makes neighbourhoods look filthy and unsanitary and also has serious effects on the environment, wildlife habitat and the ability of others to use and enjoy outdoor recreational areas. Let’s respect each other and dispose of waste properly. To find disposal locations, or report illegal dumping incidents, please visit www.surrey.ca or call Surrey’s Engineering Service Request Line at 604-591-4152.
