Mobile-home tenants without electricity since Saturday morning

Seniors powerless as winter chills Alex Browne Staff Reporter

It’s been a chilly December so far for residents at Breakaway Bays mobile-home park. As of 9:30 a.m. Monday, many of the residents at the more than 400-unit park – most of them seniors – had been without electrical power for hours, and some said they had been without power since early Saturday. Small groups gathered in the clubhouse, the only building in the park with light and heat, looking for answers.

Not many had been forthcoming, they said. A representative of the park’s management – who looked out of the clubhouse office briefly while residents spoke to Peace Arch News – declined to comment on the situation. With temperatures dipping below 0 C, particularly at night, some residents were worrying about the condition of their older and more infirm neighbours. “I’m going to be checking on some of them,” said longtime resident Rick Hermekens. “It’s like an icebox in these things, and

there are a lot of elderly people here.” Residents said that while a BC Hydro crew had come out to investigate Saturday afternoon, the problem seemed to have originated not with Hydro lines but with electrical transformers in the park. Power had been sporadic in some areas of the park since Friday afternoon, but while individual experiences differed, the absence of power had become widespread by Sunday, they agreed. On Monday, electrical crews were working on-site, but at PAN press deadline residents

said they had no information about when the problem would be fixed. “There’s lots of questions, but everyone you talk to (in park management) tells you something different,” said Shirley Sobchak, 79, who said power had been off in her mobile home since 6 a.m. Saturday. “They’ve just left us a note that the power is out,” she added. “Old people here are not going out to look for something in their mailbox to tell them there’s a power outage.  see page 4

Carotid artery missed

Disgraced ex-officer stabbed Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A White Rock man serving time at Pacific Institution after being convicted for selling marijuana while on duty as a Vancouver police officer has been stabbed. Peter Hodson was attacked Nov. 28 around 7:50 p.m., his lawyer Vincent Michaels told CTV News Thursday. “It was a very serious injury, but he’s made a good recovery. It could Peter Hodson have been fatal attacked very easily with another millimetre closer to his carotid artery,” Michaels said. “It is my understanding that it is being investigated as an attempted murder.” Correctional Service Canada spokesperson Samantha Cater, citing the Privacy Act, would not confirm Hodson was the victim. She told Peace Arch News that the targeted inmate was stabbed in the neck with a six-inch shard of glass from a microwave tray.  see page 8

Humanitarian reasons cited in dog-napping cases

‘We had a moral right to take that dog’ Kevin Diakiw Black Press

A pair of Surrey women who run an animalwelfare organization are facing several charges following what police describe as “an elaborate dog-theft investigation.” Janet Olson, 58, founder of A Better Life Dog Rescue, and 59-year-old Louise Reid, a codirector of the organization, were arrested Nov. 21 and have been charged with break-and-enter and theft under $5,000, in connection with a bulldog taken from a Coquitlam backyard Olson, who is also an Air Canada pilot, has also been charged in connection with the

news Laundromat owner releases surveillance photos

Thieves make not-quite-clean getaway A White Rock businessman is warning his neighbours to be on the lookout after a break-in at his 1484 Johnston Rd. laundromat early last week. Youssef Khattab said security cameras show two men, both wearing gloves, entered the business about 30 minutes apart on Nov. 29, between 2:30 and 4:30 a.m. The first used tools to open the front door; the second took advantage of the open door, Khattab said. Footage shows one robbed the business’s

vending machine, and the other took tools. Khattab said that while his losses were relatively minor, he wants people to be aware of what happened – in the hopes of both catching those responsible, and, until such time, of preventing similar break-ins in the area. “If (those responsible) stay in the area, they might cause other damage to other businesses or other houses,” he said. The incident was reported to White Rock RCMP, and Const. Janelle Shoihet said police are looking for a man in a snowflake toque

and another wearing a white bike helmet in connection with the break-in. Both suspects are described as Caucasian men aged 30 to 40 years old. One was riding a grey bicycle and wearing a white hoodie; the one in the toque had brown hair and a moustache, and was wearing a blue jacket that had a thick white stripe on the upper arm. Anyone with information on the suspects’ whereabouts is asked to contact White Rock RCMP at 778-593-3600. Surveillance photo - Tracy Holmes A man brings his bicycle into laundromat.

Hutchinson served terms on White Rock council in the ’80s and ’90s

Fourth term begins a quarter-century after first Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Former White Rock councillor Louise Hutchinson wasn’t surprised citizens voted her back into her old job last month. Support for the notion was positive throughout her campaign, both from those who knew her and those who didn’t, said the longtime resident who was first elected in 1986 and, after a four-year hiatus, served a third term in 1994. The surprise came around 9 p.m. Nov. 19, when voting results revealed she had won the second-highest support amongst the 13 councillor candidates. “I always thought I might squeeze into number six,” Hutchinson said. “But I never, ever would’ve expected that I would become number two.” Hutchinson received 2,275 votes – just 252 fewer than front-runner Grant Meyer, who was one of four incumbents in the race. She topped incumbents Mary-Wade Anderson, Helen Fathers and Alan Campbell, who were also voted back in, and finished 354 votes ahead of newcomer Larry Robinson. Despite her history on council – she served as a school trustee after her second council term – Hutchinson, 70, said she does feel like the new kid on the block. When she left in

Louise Hutchinson addresses White Rock voters at a Nov. 3. all-candidates meeting. 1996 to work full time as a special-education assistant in the Surrey School District, she never fathomed a return to politics. “I sort of view council as jury duty – that everybody should try it,” she said. “I thought I had done my jury stint. I ended on a positive note, I knew I was an effective councillor.” Hutchinson was inspired to run, in part, after repeatedly hearing “White Rock stalwarts” in favour of the city rejoining Surrey, and by an apparent lack of community involvement in the city.

“There were more things happening to the city, but not with the city and by the city.” Her decision to attempt a comeback came together in fairly short order. She and husband Don returned from a vacation in Crete on Oct. 10. Following an Oct. 12 public forum on finances and the history of the city, she woke Oct. 13 with a campaign speech. The next day – the deadline for nomination papers – Hutchinson called former city councillor Vin Coyne to ask if he thought she was “out of my mind” to consider running. “Before I finished, he said, ‘Go for it. The people need experienced people on council.’ “The more I got into it, the more I thought, ‘I really want to.’ And things came really easy. It really seemed like it was the right thing.” Hutchinson believes part of her success came from having the support of two mayoral candidates, former councillor Lynne Sinclair and eventual victor Wayne Baldwin, as well as that of Robinson. All three endorsed her to people they spoke to, she said. At the same time, she was careful not to publicly back any of the mayoral candidates, knowing she would need the votes of all their supporters in order to win herself. She remains mum on who got her vote. “Voting is a private thing,” she said. “I knew I could work with whoever got on.”

Hutchinson counts creation of the promenade, and votes that brought The Boathouse restaurant to Marine Drive, Pacific Terrace to the town centre and the Belair to Oxford Street, as among her successes from past terms. Looking ahead, she wants to spruce up the waterfront, possibly with the addition of summertime vendors that would make it more “beachy” by offering paddle-board, chair and other rentals. Hutchinson said she’d also like to see more pride in city hall, and more effort taken to show appreciation for a job well done. She agreed there is a sense that the past council was dysfunctional. “Catherine (Ferguson) was the mayor and she was certainly the figure-front and out there. But council seemed to be operating almost without her,” she said. “I had a sense that there was a mayor and there was an unofficial leader, and the unofficial leader had more sway than the mayor. “There was something going on but I could not put my finger on it.” The biggest challenge for the new council lies in restoring citizens’ faith that they will be listened to, she said. Hutchinson and the rest of council were to be sworn in Monday evening, after Peace Arch News’ press deadline.

news Meeting delayed by pepper-spray incident, fire alarms

Students vote out KSA Sheila Reynolds


Black Press

Interim directors will be appointed and a new election called in the new year after Kwantlen Polytechnic University students voted to oust the current Kwantlen Student Association at a special meeting last week. Scheduled to begin last Wednesday at 2 p.m. at Kwantlen’s Surrey campus, 12666 72 Ave., the meeting was delayed for more than an hour after someone pulled the fire alarm and a hallway full of people was pepper sprayed. The meeting finally resumed and, after the fire alarm was pulled a second time, the vote proceeded. More than 350 students – over a quorum of 250 – voted for the removal of five executives and eight voting council members (one of whom had already resigned), and the impeached board members say they plan to take their fight to the Supreme Court of Canada if the “botched” and “unfair” situation is not resolved. The Special General Meeting (SGM) was called after a 277name petition was presented earlier in November, demanding the removal of the council members from office, placing them in bad standing so they may never again run for the KSA, and to install a new set of bylaws. Prior to the meeting, student Arzo Ansary said a “bunch” of students were disheartened and didn’t feel they were getting any answers. “They felt this is the only avenue they had left,” Ansary said, adding there are fears the controversy is harming Kwantlen’s reputation. Much of the opposition began after it was discovered the association had put a lawsuit involving former director Aaron Takhar and others on hold. At the time, it was revealed at least two of the newly elected directors are

The longstanding lawsuit, which involved the alleged mismanagement of more than $1 million in students fees, was subsequently dismissed without costs. There are also allegations the current executives raised their own pay by 40 per cent, spent $100,000 on a concert and spent thousands of dollars on legal fees. The ousted group called the meeting “botched” and said due process was not followed. They say the general meeting was

actually called for Monday, Dec. 5 and that they had rallied their supporters to show up on that day, not Nov. 30. KSA president Sean Birdman said his group sent a complaint to the university noting the rising tensions and a perceived racism as all 26 of the targeted students are South Asian. “The University did nothing to protect us,” Birdman said. “Shockingly, they responded by banning our councillors from campus altogether, changing the locks on our office doors, and handing the keys to the opposition group purportedly appointed on Nov. 30.”

Correct decision on impaired laws


ast Wednesday, the B.C. Supreme Court upheld most of the province’s new drinking and driving laws, with a notable exception. That exception – drivers who are believed to have blood alcohol levels over .08 will no longer be subject to automatic roadside penalties, but instead may be tested at a police station, and then (depending on results) charged with impaired driving. The new strict laws have had a dramatic effect on many people. More than 23,000 people have been caught up in the net since the new laws went into effect about 14 months ago. Most have been given suspensions and stiff penalties. Others have changed their habits. They are either not drinking at all before driving, or being very cautious if they plan to drive. Businesses that depend on alcohol sales have been hard hit, with some offering rides home as an incentive. But there has been a definite shift in attitude toward drinking and driving. This is for the better. The province estimates that at least 45 lives have been saved, and while that is simply conjecture, the number of alcoholrelated deaths on the roads has fallen quite dramatically in the past year. The court decision does, however, come to the welcome conclusion that inordinately stiff penalties cannot be levied by police with virtually no chance to question the decision. Driving with a blood alcohol level over .08 is a criminal offence. Criminals don’t get charged, convicted and fined on the spot when they commit other offences. They are subject to the judicial process, which comes to a final decision of guilt or innocence based on testimony, evidence and the facts. The province has no right, under the constitution, to decide on criminal law. The province can levy fines for offences related to drivers’ licences and the use of roads. That’s why stiff penalties remain for those who blow in the ‘warn’ range of .05 to .08. There are no Criminal Code offences involved. No one will argue that drinking and driving is a good thing. The more people keep the two activities apart, the better. But that does not mean the province should act with impunity in matters which involve possible criminal activity. Stiff penalties remain as possibilities for many drivers, so there is no excuse to drink and drive over the Christmas holidays, or at any other time. It is up to the province to revise the law so that it provides proper safeguards for people accused of impaired driving, while still having enough teeth to keep impaired drivers off the road.

So far this week you’ve said… yes 43% no 57% 85 responding environment critic Rob Fleming. Fleming parroted the report’s claim that diluted bitumen is more likely to cause corrosion in pipes and tankers. Enbridge issued a statement refuting the study. Its oldest bitumen pipeline went into service in 1979, and “a complete metal loss inspection of this line in 2009 revealed no increased risk or incidence of internal corrosion.” Oh, and the proposed pipeline route doesn’t cross the Fraser River. And claims of a huge increase in greenhouse gases from “tar sands” compared to conventional oil are grossly exaggerated. (The vast majority of emissions from all crude sources come when the refined fuel is burned to truck in your groceries or get you to work.) B.C.’s own Wilderness Committee chimed in, but this eco-show was organized by the local branch office of San Francisco-based ForestEthics. Those are the folks who blessed us with the faux-aboriginal name “Great Bear Rainforest.” A similar campaign is underway against expansion of the existing Kinder Morgan pipeline from Edmonton to Burnaby, which brings Alberta oilsands crude to ships heading out under the Lions Gate bridge and winding through the Gulf and San Juan Islands to Asia. Tankers have been loading “tar sands” oil in Burnaby for about six years now, but the enviro-propagandists didn’t notice until a couple of years ago. Up until then, Fleming and his colleagues raged about maintaining a “moratorium” on B.C. tanker traffic that never existed.

Judging the judiciary Editor: Re: Province’s court system is close to collapse, Nov. 29 column. In Las Vegas, B.C. Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert Bauman warned that “funding cuts have the B.C. court system going over a cliff in slow motion.” In these times of financial restraint and budget overruns, why was it necessary to hold the annual B.C. judges’ conference in Las Vegas? Why could it not be held in some B.C. community to help the economy? In fact, is an annual conference absolutely necessary? I would like to know how much this conference – including airfare – cost out of this insufficient budget to fulfill their responsibilities to the citizens of B.C. Instead, criminals are let off the hook and our judges party in Las Vegas. And they want a six per cent raise. Some people want their cake and eat it, too. Rick MacPhee, Surrey

merchants for years. When Delta municipality can ban these types of charges, it shows how truly political is this action. It is disappointing that the NDP have not already brought up this issue and promised to ban these charges by raising taxes on the top 10 per cent – not one per cent – to ensure that the other 90 per cent of the population get first-class medical service. Herbert Spencer, Surrey

Powerless to install meters Editor: BC Hydro is a publicly owned corporation, and we the people have a right to express our opinion on how the company conducts their business. There was no public consultation on installing the smart meters.

UBCM mayors voted 55 per cent to place a moratorium on the installation of smart meters. BC Hydro does not have a billion dollars to buy these smart meters, so who will pay? We are. I read that after much public outcry – in Australia, Netherlands and Sacramento – they are being taken out, after it was discovered that ordinary Joe and Jane Average were facing increases in their hydro bills to the tune of 3-400 per cent increases; not to mention the radio waves are not good for your health. Smart meters are constant surveillance, 24/7/365. Information is stored in BC Hydro computers and, in my opinion, will be shared with other organizations. You have the right to refuse smart meters being installed in your house. If BC Hydro should cut off our power because we refused the smart meter, in my opinion they will be slapped with a huge class-action lawsuit. Mary Mikelson, Surrey

Good deed put minds at ease Editor: A month ago, my daughter had her purse stolen while we were out for a birthday celebration in White Rock. I don’t need to talk much about the misery that can create. Aside from missing cash, one worries about credit cards, stolen identities and all the horror stories that go with that. About three days after the theft, she got a call a from Jeffrey Cook, a First Nations member who, while mowing the newly fenced-in Semiahmoo Park, saw the discarded wallet. Just knowing all that personal information wasn’t floating around in the criminal world was comforting. Jeffrey refused to take a reward for putting our minds at ease, saying he was happy to have helped. Thank you, Jeffrey Cook. Susan Potzold, White Rock

Other ways to pay for care Editor: Re: Hospital parking fees ‘stress’ patients, docs say, Dec. 1. As someone who has had to visit Vancouver General Hospital several times recently, I was appalled to discover their extortionate parking fees. It takes an editorial from the Canadian Medical Association Journal to bring this disgraceful situation to everyone’s attention. Now we see the BC Liberals trying to spin this story of one more tax on a section of the population. They claim that these so-called fees are “needed to pay for capital equipment.” Nonsense. Revenues for medical care are aggregated together into one account and then allocated based on political thinking by the stooges appointed directly by the B.C. government. Reductions in both the number and massive salaries of healthcare “administrators” would go a long way in making B.C. voters recognize that we have a fair and economic health system. Fees and surcharges have been some of the sneaky ways this government has used to take more cash out of B.C. taxpayers’ pockets without appearing to increase income taxes. The fact that a “lucky few” – who have their taxes kept low so they can buy private rooms in our hospitals – are getting free parking illustrates the two-tier society that our leaders wish to impose on B.C. It is also disgusting to see that health workers are also being gouged by this government, as they often have to drive to the hospitals where they work. The pathetic excuses being used to avoid being swamped by free parkers was already addressed in the editorial – ticket validation has been used by

New Westminster organizers cancelled their Dutch Christmas celebration after racial criticism over Zwarte Piet.

Cultural celebration eradicated Editor: I could not believe my eyes when I read the Sinterklaas celebrations in New Westminster had been cancelled due to complaints from a select few in regards to the helpers the Saint has, based on the colour of their skin. Having Dutch roots – I left Holland in my late 20s and became a Canadian citizen in my early 30s – it is needless to say this bothers me tremendously that in my new home country, which is supposed to be a multicultural society, my celebration gets cancelled, while all the other celebrations simply continue, no matter what my opinion on these celebrations is; which is a good thing, as they should continue because they matter to the people that attend them. The event in question attracts on average 200 to 300 people and does not require any policing or mayors to scoop the spotlight, and neither does it require complete street closures for blocks on end. We celebrate without bothering anyone and encouraging anyone to participate by celebrating this in a public space. This annual celebration is set up by a group of selfless volunteers who dedicate hours on end to bring groups of families together for this itsy bit of culture, and they have been told their efforts are in vain for some silly reason. I am left to explain to my six-year-old daughter that in this free, multicultural country, her special celebration has been eradicated; yet in the public school system, she is forced to learn and participate in all the other different cultural events. The country has become so stifled by political correctness that last year in our school they celebrated

every other cultural event, except for the two that refer to her roots, which are Sinterklaas and Aboriginals Day. Most certainly that has to be a joke and, let there be no mistake about it, it’s the worst joke of the century. I guess the most idiotic part of this whole cancellation story is the following: A certain scholar and organizer for Black History Month was quoted as stating Zwarte Piet – Black Pete – comes loaded with offensive and racist stereotypes. If that is indeed the case, then the following should be noted from history that when Saint Nicolas arrived in Spain in the 1600s, Spain was under rule of the Moorish empire, which was African. This would explain why the Petes during the celebration are dressed in Moorish costumes from that time. Saint Nicolas was a Greek Bishop of Myra, which is now Turkey. This sounds all like Multiculturalism 101 to me. The feast was an occasion to help the poor by putting money in their shoes, and many parties – the foundation of Carnival as we know it now. All in all, this seems like a very valid reason to allow celebrations to take place. The cancelation has ruined a very special cultural celebration for many families in the Lower Mainland. I hope that this will go in the history books as well, and that we might be educated in 50 years from now, during Black History Month, that one man has eradicated a cultural festivity for a group of people that works hard at accepting every culture around them, try their best at being good citizens, simply because he took offence and did not bother to get his story straight.

news Beds open as temperature drops

Rules ease for winter shelters Extreme weather shelters in Surrey and White Rock will now open more frequently, after Surrey council made a call for them to be available during warmer temperatures. Last week, council passed a resolution asking that the Extreme Weather Response be triggered at freezing temperatures, rather than its current -2 C. “After consulting with the organizations that provide extreme weather services, we believe that when the temperature drops to zero, those beds can and should be opened,” Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts said in a release. “The change will bring our

Hodson  from page 1 “The victim had a couple pieces of glass that broke off in his neck and had to be removed in surgery,” Cater said. “He’s stable and doing well. “We’re doing an investigation into it to determine what the factors were that led to it.” Abbotsford police are also investigating. In September, the 33-year-old White Rock Christian Academy alumnus was sentenced to three years in a federal institution, after pleading guilty a year ago to trafficking in marijuana and two counts of breach of trust. He was arrested in April 2010 following a two-month investigation into allegations by a Downtown Eastside drug addict that a constable was selling street-level amounts of marijuana both on- and off-duty. Outside court shortly after Hodson was sentenced, Michaels said a federal sentence would be “hard time” for his client, and that he would do “everything that I can” to ensure Hodson was safely housed. Michaels told CTV Thursday that Hodson is now asking for extra protection, and a request will be made that Corrections “go overboard in ensuring his safety.” Last week’s assault prompted a lockdown and search at the Abbotsford facility, Cater said. The unit “has returned to normal operations,” and the victim is back at the institution. Where he’ll be housed going forward will depend on the outcome of the CSC investigation, she said. Michaels did not return repeated messages left by Peace Arch News for further comment by press deadline.

city in line with many of the other communities in Metro Vancouver.” Until last week, extreme weather in Surrey and White Rock was defined as temperatures of -2 C or colder, significant snow or freezing rain, windstorms and rain lasting more than three days. The plan identifies six shelter locations – including White Rock’s First United Church – that can provide up to 135 extreme weather beds, which has been sufficient to meet the demand in previous years. Last Tuesday, the province and local service providers acquiesced to Surrey

council’s call for a warmer threshold. Coun. Judy Villeneuve, president of the Surrey Homelessness and Housing Society, told Black Press shelters will now be open at 0 C. “I got a notice that the plan is active,” Villeneuve said. She acknowledged that the thresholds can’t be too much warmer than that, or it becomes a regular homeless shelter with a host of other hurdles. “If it goes higher, then they have to meet a whole different criteria,” Villeneuve said. - Kevin Diakiw

news Turnstiles, smart cards expected to shift officers’ duties

Transit Police needed, but role changing: CEO Jeff Nagel Black Press

TransLink CEO Ian Jarvis is defending the need to keep the Transit Police service even though a big part of the force’s job – enforcing fare payment – should all but vanish when fare gates and smart cards come to the transit system. The officers that patrol SkyTrain and its stations issued nearly 31,000 tickets last year, mostly for fare evasion. “There’s still going to be a need for a police presence on the system,” Jarvis said. “Regardless of fare gates, you’ve got an element on the system and unwanted activities that require police resources.” TransLink is spending $180 million to install fare gates in SkyTrain stations over the next year and introduce Compass smart cards to replace other payment methods in 2013. But fare evaders will still find ways to board, Jarvis predicted, and fare checks will still be needed. He agreed, however, fare-check duties for officers should drop to a small fraction of what they perform today. That has implications for the force’s ability to catch people guilty of more than just cheating TransLink. Jarvis said the reduced emphasis on fare checks

The role of Transit Police officers will change, according to TransLink CEO Ian Jarvis. should allow the force to redeploy officers to other priorities such as the bus system, where Transit Police so far make few, if any, forays. “I want more attention on other parts of the system, bus loops in particular,” Jarvis said, citing safety concerns at loops in downtown Langley, Coquitlam and North Vancouver. There have been fresh calls for Transit Police to boost enforcement on buses after TransLink disclosed the amount of fare evasion on the buses has doubled from $2.4 million to $5.3 million over the last three years. Bus drivers have also called for more Transit Police patrols to deter violent attacks against them. There will also be an extra 11 kilometres of SkyTrain and five new stations to patrol once

the Evergreen Line opens in 2016. Transit Police duties include responding to violent crimes or robberies on the system, assisting vulnerable people and preventing graffiti. They’re also supposed to watch for terrorists – the force has bombsniffing dogs and some officers trained in the

use of portable X-ray scanners and other counter-terrorism methods. Canadian Taxpayers Federation B.C. director Jordan Bateman said the change in duties marks a good time to re-examine whether TransLink should have its own police. Transit Police spend $29 million a year – funded mainly by TransLink fares, gas taxes and property tax – and the force’s budget is slated to rise to $35 million by 2014 and $42 million by 2021. “You’ve got to take a look at whether there are cheaper ways to deliver this service,” Bateman said. “The smart cards and fare gates change everything.

news Jagrup Brar will try to survive on a stipend of $610 in January

MLA to live on welfare Kevin Diakiw Black Press

A Surrey MLA will be living on the equivalent of welfare for the month of January, as part of a challenge from a group called Raise the Rates. Jagrup Brar – NDP MLA for Surrey-Fleetwood – was challenged last May to try living on $610 for the month of January, a single person’s welfare rate. Brar remained unsure about it for months until his 12-year-old daughter, Noor, said to him, “do it, and make a difference.” He admits being fearful. “My wife and my kids are concerned about my health, as well,” Brar said. “I am a national basketball player, I consider myself in good shape physically… so I hope I can go through this without any major challenges to my health.” When asked, he said he would not be carrying credit cards. Part of the Raise the Rates challenge is that out of the $610, he must spend $450 on rent, $25 on a cellphone and buy a bus pass. The normal housing allowance is $375, but Bill Hopwood with Raise the Rates said it’s near impossible to find something for that price. He also must be able to look for work, which requires a bus pass and cellphone. It leaves him with $4 a day for

MLA Jagrup Brar will try to live on welfare rates in January. food. He has been told by Raise the Rates that he can go home once a week to stay overnight, but Brar doesn’t know if he will. Food bank food will be available, but it will be provided food by Raise the Rates, so that his presence won’t impact food for others. Over the month, Brar plans to meet with people who are living on welfare. “At this point in time, I don’t know how this experience is going to shape my life and how I am going to go through the whole month,” Brar said. The challenge comes 25 years after NDP MLA Emery Barnes lived on a fixed income of $350 for a month in the Vancouver

Downtown Eastside. Constance Barnes said her late father often spoke of his month living on the eastside. “Out of all my father’s countless achievements, the one thing he is remembered for most is when he decided to walk the walk and lived in the Downtown Eastside on welfare for one month,” she said. “He was frustrated that welfare rates kept people in poverty, so he demonstrated in a very honest way that you can’t have a healthy life on welfare. “As sad as it is, not much has changed in 25 years.” Social Development Minister Stephanie Cadieux acknowledged Brar has a tough go ahead, but not as hard as those on welfare. The BC Liberal MLA for Surrey-Panorama said welfare is just one of many government services provided to people between jobs, including a host of job search programs, child care subsidies, seniors’ benefits, assisted housing and medical benefits. “The reality is I don’t think there are many people in our society that would like to try and live on $610 a month,” Cadieux said. “But what we always have to remember is that it’s the intention that it be a very temporary form of support… It’s much better to be working.”

White Rock resident Constance “Kitty” Rogers (left) celebrated her 100th birthday on Nov. 19.

Volunteer turns 100 Longtime White Rock resident Constance “Kitty” Rogers celebrated her milestone 100th birthday with family and friends at a gathering in the Dr. Al Hogg Pavillion at Peace Arch Hospital on Nov. 19. Rogers has been an active member of the community for decades, most notably taking part in the Meals on Wheels program for 20 years, until the age of 85. The centenarian has also donated her time to cancer charities, the Red Cross, the Peace Arch Hospital

Auxiliary and blood donor clinics. Her daughter, Barbara Tole, said that while Rogers did charity work throughout her lifetime, she was really spurred into action following the death of her husband, Frank, in 1973. “I think that on top of wanting to keep busy doing things, she wanted to give back as much as she could,” Tole said. The gathering, hosted by Tole and Rogers’ son Jack, was attended by five generations of her family, including her two great-great grandchildren.

news Lengthy search finds rightful owner of the commendations

Second World War medals found in drug bust Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Two years ago, Surrey RCMP conducted a raid on a drug house and discovered a set of Second World War medals and service pins, amongst other stolen property. The challenge that laid ahead for investigators was to find the rightful owner of the medals. Investigators contacted a retired major with the Royal Canadian Legion in New Brunswick, a historian who was able to identify the owner of one of the pins. Several interviews with government agencies to find the owner of the other items were fruitless. However, a family member was finally identified through the use of a geneaologist and police databases. Last month, police contacted Paul Jackson, from Parksville,

who confirmed he was the lone grandchild of war veteran Arthur Bird. Jackson was unaware his family had his grandfather’s medals, nor that they were stolen. Bird passed them on to his son (Jackson’s father), who moved to Surrey and had the medals packed away. “Dad probably forgot they (the medals) were in the house, too,” Jackson said in an interview from Parksville. “It sure was a surprise getting a call. They managed to track me down.” Jackson doesn’t remember hearing many stories of his grandfather’s time at war, but he recalls some of the tales in Britain. “He did talk about being in the trenches, laying in the wet, for hours at a time,” Jackson said. “That’s how he ended up with

severe arthritis in his legs.” Jackson doesn’t have the medals on display right now, he said. “They’re locked away,” he said. “Don’t want to take the chance of having them disappear again.” Jackson said they would remain in the family and would be passed down to his son in due course. Surrey Mounties said that they are very happy with the result of the lengthy work by investigators. “Our investigators did a tremendous job connecting and working with the Royal Canadian Legion to get these precious items back to the rightful owners,” said RCMP Supt. Bill Fordy. “This case may not have the same allure as much more serious criminal files we investigate, however, the level of satisfaction that came with its successful conclusion was unmatched.”

lifestyles Some classrooms part of ‘innovative learning’ pilot project

Surrey schools putting iPads to the test Sheila Reynolds


Black Press

t’s a different looking school class. Of course, there are students and a teacher. And the whiteboard has plenty of writing on it, including the day’s assignment, just like normal. But the desks, for the most part, are clear of binders and textbooks. And there are no worksheets to be seen. Instead, students each have iPads at their fingertips. It’s a Grade 8 science class at Surrey’s Frank Hurt Secondary, one of a dozen local schools that are part of a pilot program aimed at assessing the value of utilizing such technology in the classroom. Instead of serving as information-gathering tools, says teacher Blair Miller, the iPads in his classes are being used to creatively express the things students have been learning about, such as cells, body function and today’s lesson: the immune system. While some iPad-armed students may choose to relay their understanding of the science concepts through a stop-motion animation, others might film a skit or put what they’ve learned to music. Blair said it has proven a challenge for the teens to recreate the information and transform it into something interesting rather than “regurgitating” it back on a worksheet. In a hallway downstairs, Nolan Lockhart and Abby Fajayan are working on a movie that will illustrate how the immune system kicks into action when a virus attempts to take over the body. Using “characters”

MaryJo Whelan, another Grade 8 student, has chosen to draw each stage of an immune system response on paper and take photos of her drawings with the iPad to make a stopmotion animation presentation.

“It’s really fun because you get the opportunity to experiment,” she says. Students at Frank Hurt are also using iPads in English classes. Recently, Grade 8s were assigned to represent friendship in a multimedia way. Abdul Khattab, 13, wrote a story called Within Dreams. But embedded in the story’s text are images that when clicked on, create an accompanying sound. For example, while

a picture of a fall-coloured tree has sounds of crunching leaves, a photo of a night scene makes cricket noises. “It’s really a lot better because it really comes alive,” says Khattab. There are 12 schools involved in Surrey’s Innovative Learning Designs Project (Digital Integration Focus), a pilot program that began this fall. The district purchased the iPads for the program. Each school applied to participate in the pilot and will keep the iPads. The use of the technology at each school varies. For example, George Vanier has targeted early learning and is using iPads with students with special needs. At Johnston Heights, where the devices are used in Grade 11 social studies, math, leadership and English classes, it’s the teachers who say they’ve been transformed – not so much due to the technology itself, but because of the increased collaboration and integration of curriculum. Eric Bonfield, a humanities teacher at Frank Hurt, is working with two high school classes – one using iPads and one without. He feels it’s too early to tell whether the technology is making a difference. Students with iPads definitely have a more constant access to research and the opportunity to represent their learning differently, Bonfield says. But he’s not certain what it will all mean for teaching and learning and critical thinking. “We’ll see if it provides depth to the curriculum. Is it a serious tool that could be used? What can we do with it and where can we go with it?”

news 2011 document under wraps eight months into fiscal year

Fraser Health sitting on service plan Jeff Nagel Black Press

The year is almost over but Fraser Health has yet to release its 2011 service plan that details its priorities and spending – information critics say is needed to scrutinize the authority’s $2.5-billion budget and hold its appointed board to account. Service plans previously were released in early fall – already months late for a fiscal year that begins April 1. But this year, all health authority service plans remain

stuck in Victoria, where proNDP leader Adrian Dix called vincial government officials say the delay ridiculous and said it reflects a continumore work continues to finalize them. ing government effort to hide the details of “The ministry has been busy working health spending and with health authorities planning. “Only a Liberal govto ensure the information and the data is ernment would consider it good practice accurate,� a ministry spokesman said. “This to release a plan for a year starting April 1 work is important Adrian Dix because these plans lay after Dec. 1,� Dix said.

to health planning. “They’ve stripped the service plans in previous years of many of their indicators and now they can’t even get those out on time,� Dix said. Health authority service plans originally had 77 performance indicators to measure patient care, hospital wait times and other objectives. But many of the ones that turned up bad results were dropped. By 2010, just eight performance measures remained, although the province said the changes were just to standardize reporting.

Impaired-driving rules violate rights, says B.C. Supreme Court

Penalties too much: judge Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – Police in B.C. won’t be imposing their toughest roadside penalties for impaired driving until they give accused drivers a way to appeal results of a failed breath test. Public Safety Minister Shirley Bond announced the change last week after a B.C. Supreme Court judge ruled that the most severe of B.C.’s new impaired driving penalties infringe on people’s constitutional right to a fair trial. Ruling on a challenge to the new roadside penalties, Justice Jon Sigurdson said the increased penalties for blowing in the “warn” range of blood alcohol, from 0.05 to 0.08 per cent, are permissible. But drivers who blow in the “fail” range above 0.08 should have a chance to challenge the decision if their vehicles are impounded for 30 days and they face thousands of dollars in administrative penal-

ties, he said. Bond said the court ruling means the B.C. government needs to amend its year-old impaired law to give drivers who exceed 0.08 on the roadside screening device a chance to appeal that reading. Until that is done, “the circumstances for those in the ‘fail’ range will revert to what was previously in place,” Bond said. “Police will have the option of determining whether or not a criminal charge is warranted, and in that case you could face criminal charges and a 90-day administrative driving prohibition.” A blood alcohol reading in the “warn” range can result in a threeday driving ban, a $200 administrative penalty and another $250 fee to have a driver’s licence reinstated. Drivers may also have their car impounded for three days and be billed for towing and storage.

For roadside readings of 0.08 per cent or higher, police have been imposing a 90-day driving ban, a $500 fine and impounding the vehicle for 30 days. That suspension can cost a driver $3,750, including $700 for towing and storage and $1,420 to take a mandatory “responsible driver” course. Sigurdson did not immediately strike down the new penalties, but asked for submissions from the province and the driver who challenged the penalties to determine what comes next. Last week Premier Christy Clark and Bond celebrated the results of the new roadside penalties, a 40 per cent decline in alcohol-related deaths in the first year. The ruling comes as B.C. launches its annual Christmas CounterAttack campaign, with increased roadblocks across the province to look for impaired drivers.

“We have seen increasing pressure, in particular, from bodily injury costs,” Schubert said. Bodily injury costs are to hit $1.7 billion this year, up $350 million from five years ago. Low interest rates due to the global economy have also pushed investment income down. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon cited ICBC losses in the B.C. government’s worsening deficit position. Quarterly results for the provincial treasury show a projected deficit of $3.1 billion for the year ending in March, up $313 million. Falcon said insurance companies around the world have seen investment income fall off with the continued economic slump in the United States and instability in Europe. Schubert said most of ICBC’s investments have been moved into lower-risk short-term bonds in response to the volatility of financial markets.

What is Yoga Therapy? Yoga Therapy benefits include decreased pain, increased flexibility, mobility and strength. It calms the mind, bringing deeper sleep and increased ability to deal with daily stresses. The popularity of yoga is a testament to this ancient healing therapy and to the necessity of bringing balance to our sometimes harried and chaotic lives. As more people are taking charge of their own health and as our medical system is less able to successfully address many medical conditions, the star of yoga therapy will continue to rise. For almost 20 years, Leila Stuart has been teaching Yoga Therapy to people with a variety of physical and psychological conditions. She brings 21 years of experience as a Registered Massage Therapist and movement educator. Leila uses a variety of tools including breath, alignment and movement awareness techniques, experiential anatomy and movement repatterning.

Championship caps undefeated season for White Rock squad

Titans claim first midget football title Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter


ll season long, John Martins’ White Rock-South Surrey Titans have played football while following a simple mantra: “One team, one goal, one family.â€? Now, they can add “one championshipâ€? to that list, after defeating the Coquitlam Falcons 36-13 Sunday at Langley’s McLeod Park to claim the midget team’s first-ever provincial title. Not only is it the first B.C. crown for a White Rock midget team, it’s just the second for the entire Titans’ association; the first came in 1992 when the junior bantam team – oddly enough, coached by Martins – won a provincial title. “It was good, a really â??Once we got good game,â€? Martins the lead, there said of his second championship win as was never really a threat coach. “Coquitlam is a really good ball club, of Coquitlam but we just played a coming back.â?ž very good game.â€? The win capped a John Martins perfect season for the coach Titans, who never lost a single game all year. They rolled through the Vancouver Mainland Football League’s regular season with a 10-0 record, and then, after a first-round playoff bye, won three straight games to capture the championship trophy, which was lifted Sunday evening under frigid, near-freezing conditions. Despite a strong game by the Falcons, who were ranked second in the VMFL, the Titans’ offence – which was the league’s best during the regular season – proved to be too much for them to handle. “On offence, we spread the ball around a lot, and we were able to score first. After that, we really had the game in control,â€? said Martins. “The thing that was most impressive, I think, was that every time Coquitlam scored, we responded right away. Once we got the lead, there was never really a threat of Coquitlam coming back – and that’s not meant to insult Coquitlam, but we were able to score every time they had any life.â€? On defence, the Titans had strong games from a number of players; when asked, Martins rattled off a long list of individuals who played well, including Mike Bouchard and Mike Felice. But the veteran coach saved his highest praise for his quarterback, Cole Meyer, who lost his starting job as a first-year midget

He took hold of the job and ran with it.� Meyer was a much more level-headed player this year than in previous seasons, Martins said. “Last year, he used to get frustrated a lot, and start yelling at guys, and I told him he couldn’t do that. I said, ‘you’re the quarterback, you’re the leader. You have to stay calm out there.’ “He did that this year – he was great for us.�

sports Sunday’s victory saved Surrey from winless week

Eagles split home-and-home series with Express week having lost to them twice. Especially in our division, where the points are so close, you can’t afford to lose too many (in a row),” Erhart said. The Eagles now sit in a tie with the Nanaimo Clippers for thirdplace in the BCHL’s Coastal Conference, six points back of firstplace Cowichan and two back of the Powell River Kings. Surrey plays another home-andhome series with the Express, beginning Friday in Coquitlam. The second contest is slated for South Surrey Saturday night at 7 p.m.

Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

A late-game surge by the Coquitlam Express Sunday afternoon at South Surrey Arena nearly resulted in a winless week for the Surrey Eagles, but the home team was able to hold off, salvaging two points in an otherwise forgettable few days. Surrey won Saturday, 5-4, but lost to the Express one day earlier, 5-2, and Wednesday night at the Langley Events Centre, got spanked 6-1 by the Langley Rivermen, who trail the Eagles by 10 points in the BCHL’s Coastal Conference. “We played well for stretches this week, but it just seemed like every time we turned the puck over, it ended up in the back of our net,” Eagles head coach Matt Erhart said. “It’s nice to finish with a win, but it would’ve been nice to win two of three. “Defensively, we wanted to be a lot better.” On Sunday, the Eagles built a healthy 4-1 lead by the end of the second period, on a pair of goals from Robert Lindores and one each from Brandon and Tyler Morley, and rookie Sean McGovern even stretched the lead to 5-1 with a power-play goal 4:16 into the third period. Two goals from Coquitlam less than two minutes apart – from Alex Petan and Mitch Nardi – made it close, and for-

Surrey Eagles’ forward Brandon Morley carries the puck up ice Wednesday against the Langley Rivermen. mer Vancouver Giant Zach Hodder scored with 26 seconds left to make it 5-4. “They got a couple goals against the run of the play there, and then after that, we just kind of hung on,” said Erhart. “Coquitlam is a vastly improved

team since the start of the year – they’ve made a lot of (roster) moves, and I think they’re actually one of the best offensive teams in the whole league.” A day earlier, the Eagles fell to Coquitlam 5-2 – Brandon Tanev and Colton Mackie scored for

Surrey – which made Sunday’s win even more important, Erhart explained. “We play them four times in a row – twice more this week coming out – so it was good we were able to get the split,” he said. “You don’t want to go into the

In an effort to improve their overall depth at forward, the Eagles acquired 19-year-old Alex Hagan from the Vernon Vipers last week, in exchange for future considerations. Hagan, who had just one practice with the Birds before playing three games with his new team last week, had 10 points in 23 games this season. He had an assist Saturday against the Express. “He’s a right-hand shot, which I think we needed, and he adds to our forward group,” Erhart said. Hagan, who is committed to St. Lawrence University for 2012/13, is a New York native who played his minor hockey with current Eagles’ forward Charles Orzetti.

Earl Marriott’s Elliot Stewart tries to go over top of Kelowna’s blockers during B.C. Boys AAA Volleyball Championships in Kelowna last week. The Mariners finished second in the province.

EMS volleyball squads lead way at provincials Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The Earl Marriott Mariners had a pair of top-10 finishes at B.C. High School Volleyball Championships on the weekend, highlighted by the senior boys’ second-place finish in Kelowna. The Mariners’ senior boys squad ended up with silver medals at the provincial tournament, losing in the championship game to the Oak Bay Breakers, 3-0 (25-16, 25-20, 25-17). “They took us apart a little bit in that one, I’ll be honest,” said Richard Thain, who was Marriott’s co-head coach alongside Bob Smith. “Man, did those guys come to play. But our boys played great, and we’re as excited as you can imagine.” Meanwhile, Marriott’s senior girls side, playing in quad-A B.C.s in North Vancouver, finished in sixth place.
