Asbestos: Dying for dollars In the local building-demolition industry, the lives of workers are put at risk by some companies looking to make a profit see video and website with Tom Zytaruk

t’s no secret that asbestos is dangerous. But it might come as a surprise how some businessmen willfully put young labourers – college and high school students among them – in serious harm’s way, and just to save a buck. “I have been to many funerals over the years,” said one Surrey consultant, with 25 years in the asbestos abatement business. “It’s like putting a loaded gun to a worker’s head except the exposure doesn’t show up for 20 to 25 to 30 years.” For many years asbestos was considered to be a miracle building material. It’s heat resistant, fire resistant, absorbs sound, resists electrical and chemical damage, and is relatively cheap. The problem is, it’s also poisonous.

Asbestos represents six types of fibrous silicate minerals. These minerals had been used since the late 1800s in North America, in building and construction materials, until their dangers were discovered a few decades ago. Any building constructed prior to 1990 is likely to contain some asbestos and those built before 1984 will contain a lot. Once inhaled, fine particles lodge themselves deep inside the lungs, where their presence over time can lead to horrific diseases like lung cancer, asbestosis and mesothelioma. Workers in the residential demolition business can be protected from exposure if the material is safely identified and removed. Problem is, doing things the right way is more expensive and takes more time than cutting corners, so some developers and owners seek out labs or consultants who are willing to prepare bogus reports that indicate a building contains no asbestos when it is indeed present. see › page 3

Asbestos: special report

‘It’s not a pleasant death – it hurts’ ‹ from page 1

One Surrey consultant, who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of what effect this report might have on his business, said unscrupulous developers motivated by saving money and cutting time have figured out that with a falsified report they can gut the interior of a house before going to get a demolition permit. “There’s a lack of a reporting method for the regulatory board to catch on to,” the consultant said. “It’s like the Wild West. “I have been asked a handful of times every year for 25 years, from different developers or major players, how much money it would cost to change my report,” he said. “Surrey is a hot spot, obviously, because Surrey continues to grow rapidly. Buildings coming down, new development.” Lorne Heslop, owner of a demolition and recycling outfit called Heslop Enterprises Ltd., knows personally the damage inhaling asbestos dust can do. He’s undergone surgery to remove roughly 40 tumours from his lungs. “The problem with asbestos is you don’t see it, smell it or taste it until you can’t breathe any more,” Heslop said. Heslop has been in the building demolition business for more than 35 years and says he trusts only a handful of the more than 30 consultants in the Lower Mainland who provide laboratory analysis of materials suspected of containing asbestos. Some consultants, he said, will report whatever their client wants them to.

M

ike Holloway, of Assertive Excavating & Demolition Ltd., echoed that. “It’s readily available for people to buy false results for Hazmat reports,” Holloway said. “Even if they’re not buying false ones, so-called consultants can just go out and write whatever they want, and it’s not enforced. They’re not taking adequate samples to protect the workers and the public. It’s too easy for us to still be exposed to asbestos.” Heslop advised homeowners to pay attention to some important details when shopping for someone to tear down their old house. Seeing as each city and municipality has its own particular bylaw requirements governing building demolition, Heslop said clients should consult with their local city hall before getting a demolition permit. “The lowest quote is not always the cheapest in the end,” he warned. “Always ask for a minimum of five references and visit at least three of the completed job sites. Walk around and look into any forest or bush area for demolition debris hidden by the contractor.” Heslop strongly advises people in the market for a contractor to chose one with a proven track record of protecting their clients from any liabilities. Clients should also ask the hazardous material consultant and asbestos abatement and demolition contractors to include them on their asbestos-coverage insurance, as a corider. Heslop does so as standard practice, and is covered for $5 million. “That way my clients know I’m protecting them,” he said. “If I screw up, they’re covered. I would like to see consultants have to do the same thing.” If a consultant won’t back up his report, Heslop said, “I’d be very leery of doing business with him.” Heslop added that a “good contractor” will give his clients receipts indicating what material was dumped, and where. “Ultimately, it all falls back on the homeowner, unless he’s on the contractor’s insurance.” Don Whyte, executive director of the Hazardous Materials Association, finds it “extremely frustrating” that there is no certification-training program for test sampling consultants in B.C., like there is in Alberta. His association

Mike Holloway, of Assertive Excavating & Demolition Ltd., says so-called consultants are not taking adequate samples to protect the workers and the public. “It’s too easy for us to still be exposed to asbestos.” (Photo: KEVIN HILL) represents 15 hazardous materials contractors, mostly in the Lower Mainland. “We’re the people who endeavour to do this properly,” he said. “Our contractors are out trying to perform to an industry standard and they’re continuously being undermined by contractors that are not only circumventing the regulations but deliberately circumventing, and sometimes quite sophisticatedly. They’re getting to be very good at it and sometimes they’re smarter than the regulatory agencies.” Whyte said WorkSafe BC doesn’t recognize who’s competent and who’s not when it comes to both contractors and consultants who analyze test samples. “There’s no bridge between WorkSafe BC and the Ministry of the Environment, and there should be. Those two agencies operate in isolation from one another on these issues. There’s a lot that could be done.” Al Johnson, vice-president of Prevention Services, WorkSafe BC, concedes there is a problem with regulating consultants. “You or I could hang out a shingle tomorrow and start up in this business,” he noted. However, he added, certification is not a be-all and endall solution, either. “Just because you have a driver’s licence,” Johnson said, “it doesn’t mean you are driving it correctly.”

C

ertain financial considerations make it tempting for some developers to cut corners. A safety officer with a hazardous material abatement company who, like the consultant, spoke on condition of anonymity, said developers find it cheaper to do business with private labs in the United States, over which B.C. officials have no oversight. “People are getting ‘clean’ reports that are not necessarily clean,” the safety officer said. “Homeowners typically go for the cheapest report. Anybody would. You get what you pay for.” Whyte agreed. “They call them sweatshop labs down there.” Moreover, as Holloway explained, the cost of doing things the right way can be “astronomical” because drywall containing asbestos must be shipped to Alberta. “We can’t accept it in our landfills here. When drywall decomposes, it makes a gas, and their water table in Alberta is lower, it doesn’t leach. Scientifically, it can’t go here.” Because it’s expensive to ship the drywall to Alberta, that’s the reason why you sometimes see it dumped in local parks, at the sides of streets and in ditches. Those consultants and contractors who insist on earning an honest living sometimes feel like they’re pushing a rock

uphill, only to have it roll down again. “The good companies, if they don’t like the report, they will do samples themselves and pay for it out of their own pocket if they have to, to keep the workers safe. The bad companies just demo it, throw it in a box and take it to the dump,” Heslop said. Some operators providing asbestos abatement service do so without any procedures in place or qualifications to assess the risk a house might represent. “I’ve had houses where I know there’s been asbestos,” Heslop said. “I’ve given the owner a price; he’s basically said f-you. And I come back on the weekend, and schoolage kids are in there ripping drywall out that I know is contaminated. I phone up WCB, they come out, shut them down, and decontaminate the kids. The kids go home, and they’ll find out in 20-plus years if they’re alive or dead. They’ve got no recourse. The homeowner might get a fine or he might not. “When they’re 40 and they have a family, they’re going to be on their death bed. And it’s not a pleasant death – it hurts,” Heslop said. “If your kid’s going to work on the weekend removing drywall,” he advised, “pay him $50 to stay home, out of your own pocket.” Al Johnson, of WorkSafe, has 17 inspectors in the Lower Mainland, working six days a week to ensure asbestos is being properly identified and removed during residential building demolitions. “We have had some success in putting some people out of work,” he said. “I think we’ve made some good solid headway.” He pointed out that not all infractions are the result of devious conduct. “In some cases it’s a lack of understanding.” Johnson said the fines for companies caught not properly handling or removing material that contains asbestos range from $2,500 to $500,000. A stop work order is usually the first step, with repeat fines being multiplied by a percentage of the business operator’s payroll. “The larger the company, the larger the fine,” Johnson said. The safety officer, who requested anonymity, believes WorkSafe is trying their best, but added, “It’s like playing whack-a-mole right now.” According to Whyte, roughly 100 houses are being demolished in the Lower Mainland every month. “We just don’t have the manpower to do the enforcement,” he said. Some in the business consider the fines to be light. “A lot of these guys are like ‘that’s just the price of doing business,’” the safety officer said. “Unfortunately, they don’t calculate in the price of these kids’ health or the neighbours’ health, or the people breathing it in as the truck goes down the road.” Whyte and other people in the business think jail time is appropriate, in some cases. “It’s criminal activity,” Whyte said. “These guys should be charged with assault.” He noted that between 1996 and 2005 there were 307 work-related fatalities in B.C., and of those, 145 were asbestos related. That’s 15 victims each year. Holloway agreed. “They should be able to make people do jail time for this. They’re poisoning people.” Heslop said it’s up to the politicians “to sit down and give the proper people authority to actually do something. Like jail time would be nice.” “It would be great to have jail time, but that’s unrealistic.” Imposing severe fines, he figures, is a more practical solution. “If you hit them hard enough, they’ll see it’s cheaper to do it right.”

A Surrey Mountie shot a man who had allegedly been threatening SkyTrain passengers with a knife on Saturday evening. Police reportedly tried to stop him with a stun gun before shooting him, outside the Scott Road SkyTrain station. His name has not been released. At press time he was still in hospital. The Surrey-based Independent Investigations Office, which investigates cases of police-related violence, is looking into the matter. This shooting happened at about 7:30 p.m. Roughly three hours later, the Surrey RCMP were called to another shooting in Whalley after a man who’d been shot in the shoulder, neck and face came screaming to the Mac’s convenience store at 132nd Street and 104th Avenue. Cpl. Bert Paquet said police followed a trail of blood but were unable to locate the scene where he’d been shot. Paquet said the victim, whose name has not been released, has been unco-operative with police. He’s recovering in hospital. “It certainly does not appear to be a random shooting,” Paquet said.

Crash leaves two people hospitalized Two people are still in hospital, with injuries not life threatening, after a bad traffic crash in Newton sent four to hospital Saturday afternoon. The five-vehicle crash happened at 78th Avenue and 140th Street, just before 2 o’clock. Police are asking witnesses to contact the Surrey RCMP Traffic Section at 604-599-0502.

A motorist already banned from driving was arrested early Friday morning for dangerous driving after leading police on a goose chase in North Delta. Const. Ciaran Feenan said a Delta Police constable spotted the suspect driving erratically northbound on 112th Street, from 84th Avenue, shortly after 1 a.m., and followed him “from a distance,” with no sirens or emergency lights on. The driver then sped off along 115th, made a sharp right and crashed into a car parked on 84B Avenue. He was arrested for dangerous driving, prohibited driving, and his vehicle was impounded.

Partiers maced Numerous people were maced at a house party in Sunshine Hills on Friday night. Delta Police Const. Ciaran Feenan said this happened after a group of up to 20 South Asian youths crashed the party, in the 6900-block of Westview Drive, in North Delta at about 10 p.m. “When the homeowner told them to leave, one of the subjects sprayed a group of partygoers with mace,” Feenan said. “Numerous victims were affected by the pepper spray.” Feenan said the suspect is South Asian, about 18, and had a black Mohawk haircut, pierced ears and wore a black jacket with “cocaine and caviar” embroidered on it. The group took off, with some taking off in a new grey sedan. Police later stopped a car of that description and arrested the suspect, who was wanted on a Surrey warrant. He is under investigation for assault with a weapon.

Substance abuse tackled at awareness-week events Jacob Zinn

Kick Up Your Heels

Toward the end of this month, the City of Surrey will host its third annual Substance Use Awareness Week (SUAW) to educate residents about the dangers of drugs and alcohol, and how to prevent one’s self from succumbing to addiction. As acting mayor, Coun. Judy Villeneuve proclaimed May 26 to June 1 as SUAW at last Monday’s council meeting. The seven-day campaign is part of the city’s crime reduction strategy as a way to address a wide range of addiction issues. In addition to illicit drugs and excessive consumption of alcohol, the campaign – in partnership with Alcohol and Drug Education Services, Fraser Health and eight other groups – will inform Surreyites of other addictions such as gambling, prescription medication and online games. “Addiction transcends age and gender, economic status and neighbourhood, culture and personality,” said Deb Cameron of the

Surrey school district, who presented on the awareness week at council. “The spirit of our SUAW is to bring this issue to light as a real struggle for many members of our community, and to encourage and grace those in need of support.” The city will distribute comprehensive fact sheets with such themes as substance abuse and body image and parenting via the city’s website (surrey.ca), Facebook page (facebook. com/TheCityofSurrey), Twitter account (@TheCityOfSurrey). On May 30, the city will set up an information booth at Central City Shopping Centre from 3 to 6 p.m. City workers will provide information about such related topics as synthetic drug labs how to spot a grow-op. A parent education night on addictions is scheduled for May 29 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Earl Marriott Secondary, as well as an education session on May 30 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Sources in White Rock. The city is also encouraging campaign partners, local businesses and community groups to host their own SUAW events with an event toolkit, available at the city’s website.

Surrey murderer can apply for early parole, jury decides Tom Zytaruk

Now staff Twitter @tomzytaruk

An aging convict who set up a contract killing in one of Surrey’s most sensational murder cases has won his bid to be able to apply for early parole. Brian Gerald West, 64, has to date served 20 years in prison for his role in the Jan. 27, 1993 murder of 19-year-old Sian Simmonds, in Surrey. West was convicted of first-degree murder in 1995 and was sentenced to life in prison with no eligibility for parole for 25 years. He applied under Section 745 of the Criminal Code to have his parole reviewed. Known as the “Faint Hope Clause,” Section 745 allowed convicted murderers to apply for early parole after serving 15 years, on the “faint hope” they’ve reformed. The Conservative government amended the legislation in 2011 so that the clause isn’t available to murderers who committed their crime after Dec. 2, 2011. A jury in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster decided Friday afternoon that

West can apply for parole next year. Sian’s dad, Chris Simmonds, is upset. “We’re very disappointed,” he told the Now. “The jury only got a glimpse of an actor. We’re hoping the parole board is more up on the real Brian West than the jury is.” Simmonds said it’s been hard for his family to be back in court for this, 20 years later. “It’s bloody awful. As a family we’ve been moving on. Now this is affecting our grandchildren.” On Wednesday, Crown prosecutor Christopher McPherson told the jury that West isn’t fit for release. “He has not chosen to take responsibility for the thing he has done,” McPherson argued, adding that West is “a self-admitted liar. You can’t tell when is he telling the truth and when he’s not,” McPherson said. Sian Simmonds, 19, was murdered in her basement suite in Guildford on Jan. 27, 1993. She and her sister Katie were scheduled to testify at a disciplinary hearing in March 1993 into Whalley doctor Joseph Charalambous’s conduct after accusing him of making sexual advances toward them. Charalambous had been their family doctor for 10 years.

A proposal in the U.S. senate to look at charging Canadians a fee for crossing the border has been put out to pasture. Last month, Congress was asked to consider looking at a fee for anyone crossing into the U.S. by land via Canada and Mexico. The fee was suggested by the Department of Homeland Security as a potential way to recover funding following

However, following criticism on both sides of the border by various boards of trades and politicians, the senate’s judiciary committee has decided to ban the idea altogether. “It does not take a study to know that charging Canadian relatives, friends, tourists, business people and shoppers a fee to enter the United States is a bad idea,” wrote Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy, chair of the committee, on his website. “I do not

B.C. politics

An election for the ages, either way InTheHouse Keith Baldrey

I

t’s always challenging filing a column on the eve of an election since, by the time most people read it, they have either already voted or know the election’s outcome. So predictions can be a precarious proposition. However, I will offer one prediction: this election will go down as one of the most pivotal ones in B.C. history. One of two scenarios will occur: either the B.C. Liberals will mount one of the most stunning political comebacks in Canadian history, or the NDP will pull off what it doesn’t do very often in this province – actually winning an election. Throw in the very real prospect that a third party (the Greens) and more than one independent could be elected and the stage is set for a historically important vote. Both of the major parties are at a crossroads. The NDP, according to reputable pollsters such as

Ipsos Reid and Angus Reid, had a strong lead in public support heading into the campaign’s final days. The prospect of an election win looks to be the best in more than 20 years, and if the party drops the ball on the goal line and loses, the ramifications could be huge. If the NDP can’t win under the current circumstances – facing an unpopular leader of an unpopular government, and leading in the polls for so long – the question of whether the party can ever win will come up, and I’m not sure what the answer will be for many people. The B.C. Liberals face possible extinction if they can’t pull off a miracle win, or at the very least win enough seats to form a credible Opposition. We’ve seen the so-called “free enterprise coalition” fall apart and disappear before (see: Social Credit party). This brings us to the two leaders. If the NDP loses, Dix will undoubtedly face many critics within his own ranks. The NDP is very good at taking down its leaders at the slightest sign of weakness (see: Mike Harcourt, Glen Clark and Carole James) and Dix may

well face a revolt of some kind. However, it may be Christy Clark who faces the sharpest knives. If she wins, then those knives will of course be sheathed, at least for a while. But if she loses, the focus will be on how many seats she delivered and whether they are enough to save her leadership. Will 25 seats be enough? Or 30? Or 35? I suspect if the party slips below 25 seats, the sands start shifting under her feet. This election will also be studied by political scientists for other reasons, notably the contrasting styles the two parties took through the campaign. The B.C. Liberals ran an angry, relentlessly negative campaign that routinely issued false and misleading statements about all kinds of

things. Clark was called on this by the media – national columnists such as Gary Mason from the Globe and Mail and Brian Hutchinson from the National Post wrote scathing columns, and Global BC and other news outlets conducted “reality checks” that questioned the B.C. Liberal claims. Yet, for all the criticism, the B.C. Liberals actually went up in public support (according to the polls) using this approach. If they ultimately win the election, will the analysis be that an angry and inaccurate campaign (filled with relentless personal attacks on the other party’s leader and various candidates) wins these things and therefore should be the model for subsequent contests? Of course, an NDP

victory may offer another source of analysis for political scientists. The NDP ran a mostly positive campaign that stressed their platform, and only at the end did the party switch gears and hurl grenades at the B.C. Liberal track record. At no time, however, did the party engage in the kind of personal attacks that were routinely part of the other camp’s strategy. But the NDP lost ground during the campaign, according to those polls. A once insurmountable lead

shrunk to single digits. Does that suggest people aren’t inspired by the positive approach, and are lured by the negative? We should know the answers to these questions about 9 p.m. on election night. Whatever the outcome, it’s bound to have an impact far greater and further reaching than the last two elections, and many more before them.

Earthquake prep bogus Tom Zytaruk Reporter

L

ine up for your kids, folks, the big one’s hit. What a joke. If what I witnessed at my kids’ elementary school last Friday afternoon was even remotely representative of this government’s concept of earthquake emergency preparedness, we’re all screwed. Behold, the spectacle. Classes were let out early to accommodate an earthquake drill. Apparently it was National Emergency Preparedness Week. The children were sat down on the field, beside pylons I think, corralled inside an area cordoned off with tape. At one side of this, there were several folding tables, under some tents.

School staff milled about in orange vests, while great long lineups of parents snaked out from these tables, waiting to pick up their children. As I walked up to these lines, I spotted my boys in the section V to Z. “Hey guys,” I called out, walking right by them. They looked bored. Anyway, I joined the line. After about 20 minutes, it was my turn at the “Check In” table. After some fiddling through a files box, I was then directed to a second “Check Out” table where my boys and I were finally re-acquainted. They looked embarrassed. I take some solace that my wife wasn’t there. You see, when she was a young girl, she and her family lived in a tent for about a month after a massive earthquake hit Guatemala City in 1976, killing 23,000 people and injuring 76,000. And that was a 7.5. They’re expecting a

bigger one here, on the West Coast. I’m glad she didn’t see this sorry thing they called a drill. It probably would have brought tears to her eyes. Perhaps this plan looked fine on paper, making some deputy minister somewhere happy. In reality, it was surreal. Honestly, cordons, tables, tents, files boxes and such? This is really going to happen, after the big one hits? In a real earthquake, parents would grab their kids straight away, some probably yanking their youngsters away by the arm, as this shoddy excuse for a plan collapsed into chaos faster than you can say the word. A cynic might well suspect the government just wants people to believe it’s prepared for a major earthquake. Look, people, drills. Now sleep tight. I don’t know what’s scarier – that scenario, or the possibility they really believe they’re ready.

The Editor, I just finished reading your frontpage story, “For Mother’s Day, I just want him to say, ‘Mom,’” the Now, May 9. This was a beautiful story and it touched my heart as I too am a mom with a son on the autism spectrum. There are many places in the world that are helping to heal and recover children and they do not have to be so sick and struggling so much. The unfortunate reality in B.C. is the lack of funding for autism intervention as well as a lack of knowledge of many physicians treating these children medically. Thank you again for the story and allowing autism to have a voice. Charity Tait

No parking in park The Editor, Re: “More parking, less park?” the

Now, May 2. I strongly agree with Coun. Linda Hepner’s statement, “...I’m wondering why they don’t do a two-tiered parking structure on the property that they have.” Parking is none other but their problem. Surrounding residences should be protected by residentsonly parking. Ms. Hepner, as chair of parks, recreation, etc., is cognizant of the people’s wishes, which were vociferously indicated in the 2009 “Save Bear Creek Park” initiative. To give up park space for non-park users’ benefit is ludicrous. Parking is their problem. In the first place, the parking area should never have been opened after-hours for such usage, and whomever in City of Surrey gave the go-ahead for this use made a grave error, which is now compounding itself. Is it time to resurrect the “Save Bear Creek Park” petitions? Annie Kaps, Surrey

Excitement grows at Surrey Memorial Hospital

The new pediatric emergency department is scheduled to open in October as part of the new Critical Care tower editorial by George Garrett Photo: Nurse manager Leeann Taylor

Nurse manager Leeann Taylor – who spent 10 years nursing in maternity says the excitement is about the opening of a new pediatric emergency department. Years in the planning and construction stages, the project is now nearing completion. Taylor uses the analogy of a pregnancy saying the project is now in its second trimester and about to come to full term. The new pediatric emergency department is scheduled to open in October as part of the new Critical Care tower at Surrey Memorial. It will be part of an emergency department with a separate area for children. Families will now be able to come into a safe, secure, pediatric-focused area.

Nurse-manager Taylor is enthusiastic not only about her staff and the dedication they bring to the job but can’t wait to work in the new kidfriendly environment, complete with TV and video games. She said they want to make it as family-friendly as possible. Kids can write or draw on bedside tables, images that can easily be erased.

That’s consistent with Surrey’s rapid growth. 4200 babies are born at the hospital each year, the equivalent of half a kindergarten class a day. Taylor says, “That’s a lot of children born in Surrey and we want to make sure that we are ready to care for them.”

Taylor’s enthusiasm for her work and that of her team shines through. She says, “Every day I say …oh my goodness. I can’t imagine being anywhere else. It’s great. The program we are offering, the hard work we are doing. The teamwork. The camaraderie. It’s all second to none in my opinion.”

Families will have individual rooms, more than double the size of current spaces. Taylor said that will mean more room for families to be with their children during difficult and scary times. The kids stay in their rooms and families are welcome to stay all the time. The emergency department currently treats about 18,000 children a year and that number is expected to grow to 25,000 emergency room visits just for children alone.

COMMUNITY Charity

‘Legacy gift’ to help youth when Surrey woman no longer can Tom Zillich

Now staff Twitter @tomzillich

Joan Webster gave her time to charity, but hadn’t immediately considered leaving a “legacy gift” for that particular organization. Since February, the South Surrey resident has served as a volunteer with Covenant House, which operates a drop-in centre for youth living on the streets of Vancouver. “The youth come in from a night on the streets for food and respite,” said Webster, an “empty-nester” whose husband, Tom Webster, is CFO of First West Credit Union. “Most importantly, they seek advice and support of the youth workers, for all kinds of needs, proving that they still need adults in their life. They remind me of my own children, and I was wishing that I could do more to help them.” Around that time, someone told Webster about the possibility of her including a “legacy gift” for Covenant House in her will, “to continue to support this

wonderful organization when I no longer can.” Last week, Webster told the Now she will be changing her will to include a donation of up to $100,000 for Covenant House. Women are more likely to have wills than men, according to a recent Mustel Group survey that suggested 54 per cent of women have wills compared to 47 per cent of men. Of those who have wills, 58 per cent of interviewees said they had not considered donating a portion of their assets to charity upon death. Leave A Legacy, a national public awareness program created in 1993, is designed to encourage people to leave a gift through their will, or any other gift-planning instrument, to a charity or non-profit organization of their choice. Program operators have chosen May as “Leave a Legacy Month,” to raise awareness. Over the next 20 years, the organization says up to $1.5 trillion is expected to change hands via wills. A website (www. leavealegacyvancouver.

com) has been set up to help people like Webster with “legacy gift” questions. “It’s a chance to give back,” Webster said. “I’d never thought about it.”

The youth come in from a night on the streets for food and respite (at drop-in centre operated by Covenant House).… They remind me of my own children, and I was wishing that I could do more to help them.

COMMUNITY Surrey Arts Centre

70-plus awards given at event hosted by Surrey RCMP

Surrey

More than 70 awards were presented to Surrey Mounties, city staff and local residents Wednesday night at the Surrey RCMP Officer in Charge Awards. The ceremony was held at the Surrey Arts Centre. Among those recognized were a taxi driver who helped police track down a hit-and-run suspect, officers who disarmed an armed man at a laundromat, police and staff for their efforts to address the struggles of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered youth, and officers

who went above and beyond the call of duty,” Chief Supt. Bill Fordy said. “This event also provides us with an opportunity to highlight the dedication and sometimes heroism displayed by both police officers and residents from the City of Surrey.” The complete list of award winners can be viewed at Surrey RCMP’s website, at http://tinyurl.com/cek9j8d (website address abbreviated via third-party service).

PLANTLAND NURSERY & GARDEN CENTRE

Dear Friend I’m about to make you a deal that’s hard to refuse if you’ve got an “older” (and probably less than optimally efficient) furnace. I’ll replace your old furnace AND heat pump as a “package deal” for at least $3136.00 less than you would pay any other time of the year. Sound too good to be true? It’s not and here’s why. I’m making you what sounds like an unbelievable offer because it actually makes good sense for my business. And you come out a winner, as well! You see, I know from experience that in my slowest months I actually end up losing money ... then I have to spend the rest of the year trying to make up for it. Right now, I have no reason to believe 2013 will be any different. That’s why I’ve decided to give up trying to make a profit during these months and minimize my losses ... so I can come out ahead the rest of the year. So here’s how I can make the incredible offer at the top of this letter. Every year the biggie furnace manufacturers guesstimate how many furnaces to produce. Since there’s no way of knowing what the weather will be like and other factors that affect sales, these guys always have leftover inventory they have to hold onto until the next heating season. I saw a great business opportunity in this and went to one of these biggie companies (they won’t allow me to use their name in this letter) and contracted for the purchase of these furnaces that were going to just be sitting around. Plus, I bought 23 heat pumps all in the 3 most popular sizes used in Lower Mainland homes. Because of the number I bought and the time of year I purchased them, I got an unbelievable deal ... rock-bottom prices. Don’t get me wrong - these are brandnew, top quality, 2013 models. Not “seconds.” Not “blems.” Not builder-grade. These are premium furnaces and heat pumps fresh from a name-brand factory with a full factory warranty. How to Get Your Name Brand Furnace for Virtually Nothing By putting together this furnace-plusheat pump package (I call it the “Hottest AND Coolest Deal of the Century”), going through some heavy negotiations with the

Local Business Owner

manufacturer, and then committing to buying 23 systems outright, I got BOTH the furnace AND the heat pump at a price that would have made Sam Walton proud. This means when you buy one of these 23 new, premiumquality heat pumps I will “give” you the furnace and ask you to pay only the $1181 in labor it costs to install your furnace. Pick up your phone right now Simply call me at 946-1000 at anytime so I can come out and measure your home (to see if I’ve got the proper size unit). Remember ... I’ve got only 23 matched systems in 3 sizes so you’ll want to let me know VERY SOON that you’re interested. When these 23 systems are gone, they’re gone, and this offer is null and void. Call me right now so we can get the ball rolling! As part of the deal, I’ll show you how much the heat pump costs ... how much the furnace WOULD have cost ... and your savings when you buy your new heat pump and furnace as part of this special offer. The price I show you will include all installation materials and labor. There’s no fine print, nothing left out. Earlier I said that making you this amazing offer is also good business for me The way I look at it, by letting YOU win big now, I’ll win at the end of the year. And I won’t have to “make up” for the lost sales during my slowest months. I figure if I make you an absolutely irresistible offer .. if your furnace is pushing 8 years or more ... and if I barely mark up the price I paid, I’ll accomplish 2 major objectives that will allow me to reduce my losses the rest of the year. I’ll be able to ... • Pay my overhead (rent, utilities, insurance and taxes) during the slow period • Keep my service & installation technicians busy enough to pay them to work instead of sit at home. As you can see, when you take me up on my “Hottest AND Coolest Deal of the Century,” EVERYONE IS A WINNER! And by the way, there’s no obligation when you have me come out to measure your house and explain the installation If you decide you don’t want to take advantage of this incredible deal (although I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t want to save this kind of money), it’s no problem. You’re not obligated in any way. In fact, just for taking time to read this letter and having me out to survey your house ... I’ll give you a

Very Special Free Gift Coupon ($50 value). Why? Even if we don’t do business together now, I want you to remember us in the future. If you’re thinking a new furnace (& heat pump) isn’t in your budget - don’t worry! You don’t have to pay me right now Because I’ve tried to think of every reason possible why you WOULDN’T take me up on this spectacular offer, I’ve even made arrangements for a super bank rate financing plan. And I’m not “marking up” the interest rate like so many other companies do. While I can’t promise you this, it’s possible that with this financing plan your monthly investments in a new system could be more than paid for by the savings you see on your monthly utility bills. My Disappointment-Proof Guarantee Talking about lower utility bills, I’m so sure you’ll see at least a 25% cut in your heating and cooling bills (in reality, it may be more like 35%+), if you don’t I’ll pay you twice the difference for 2 years. Not only are you getting a new, firstquality furnace virtually free, plus a firstquality heat pump at a great price, I guarantee you’ll lower your heating and cooling bills by at least 25% or I’ll pay you double your savings for 2 years. (This alone should convince you that these systems are some of the very best quality and most efficient available). But you’ve got to act fast ... call me at 946-1000 right now! This offer ends May 15th no matter what Don’t wait to call me. Here’s why. I have only 8 of each of the 3 sizes. When all of the air conditioners are sold and all the furnaces “given away” in a certain size, the “Hottest AND Coolest Deal of the Century” is over. And if I still have any of the 23 systems left on May 31st, this offer still ends. The reason is that my business only slows down for a short time. Since these furnaces cost me so little, if I’ve got any left, I’ll sell them next winter at last year’s prices and still come out ahead. So call me right now at 946-1000 Thanking you in advance, Scott Campbell Owner P.S. Remember, there’s no obligation and even if you change your mind once I measure your house and give you the estimate - you still get that Free Gift Coupon worth $50.

FOREVER YOUNG Art Kube

A leading voice for B.C. seniors calls Surrey home “Seniors are an asset to society, not a burden,” said Kube. “We believe seniors and their organizations must have continuing involvement in ensuring that policies affecting their lives are fair and just.” Early on in the current provincial election campaign, COSCO sent questionnaires to candidates asking where they stand on seniors’ issues. “We have heard nothing from any Green candidate, and only one Liberal candidate has responded,” Kube said Friday. “By comparison, we have heard back from most Conservative candidates and we received a comprehensive response from the BC NDP.”

Tom Zillich

Now staff Twitter @tomzillich

Few seniors are as active as Art Kube – politically active, that is. The retired Surrey resident, 78, is president of Council of Senior Citizens’ Organizations of B.C. (COSCO), a federation of 86 groups representing 80,000 seniors in the province. It’s close to a full-time “job” for Kube, who volunteers his time with the organization. Last fall, COSCO was an organizer of a two-day national conference in Richmond called “The Joys and Tears of Living Longer.”

A key political issue for seniors is improving home support services, he said. “Over the last decade, home support services have been cut by 30 per cent,” Kube said. “This has forced many seniors into Art Kube residential care before their time.” Kube, who lives in the Fleetwood area, has fought for the rights of workers since arriving in Canada as an 18-year-old ship

worker from Poland. He was active in the Steel Workers Union and also served as president of the B.C. Federation of Labour in the mid-1980s. Today, Kube is proud to be a voice for seniors. “We (seniors) have no desire to be put into expensive facilities where we can vegetate and wait to die,” he wrote in a letter to the Now last June, during Seniors’ Week. “We want to fully participate, advocate on public issues, fulfill our responsibilities as citizens and help to create a more civil society for our children and grandchildren. And we must be involved in planning our own futures.”

Surrey United teams repeat as B.C. champs Michael Booth

Surrey 3, North Shore 0. Those were the results in both goals and titles won at the Provincial Cup club soccer finals in Victoria Saturday. Surrey United successfully defended their B.C. crowns in the men’s and women’s A finals with 1-0 wins over North Shore opponents while Guildford FC downed West Van by an identical score line to win the men’s Under-21 silverware. South Surrey’s Coastal FC also loaded up a trophy for the return trip to the mainland after knocking off Victoria Gorge 3-0 in the women’s Classics (35+) finale. In the women’s A final, Surrey United stretched their dominance to a full decade with their 10th consecutive Cup title by beating the North Shore Renegades 1-0. “It’s funny because you don’t really realize how impressive the streak is until you look at the list of Cup winners and it’s got a long list saying Surrey United,” said Surrey coach Leigh Sembaluk. “You see that and you can’t help but think, ‘That’s not bad at all.’” Surrey opened the scoring in the 30th minute when the ball deflected off the hands of the North Shore goalkeeper and onto the feet of Chelsey Hannesson, who quickly deposited it into the back of the goal. Surrey carried the play for the remainder of the opening half and most of the final frame before North Shore began to push hard for the equalizer. At one moment it looked like their efforts were rewarded when North Shore forced the ball out of the hands of Surrey keeper Theresa Nuttall, but the goal was called off immediately by the referee. In the men’s A final, the Surrey United Firefighters completed a sweep of the marquee games of the day by edging West Van 1-0. Surrey began the game in fine form and caught a break in the fifth minute. With nothing but open field ahead of him, Angus Burke was brought down hard by the last West Van defender, who was subsequently ejected with a red card. Colin Streckmann

stroked home the ensuing penalty kick to give Surrey an early 1-0 lead. “It was the correct call and the resulting penalty kick was a goal,” said Surrey coach Rob Reed. “It was a very odd way to start a game; I don’t think I’ve ever seen that happen before. It was the correct call and to be honest, after that West Van adjusted and played a remarkable game.” West Van’s best chance to equalize came 15 minutes into the second half when Surrey goalkeeper Andrew Fink stopped a penalty kick. After that, the Firemen had several chances to ice the game with a second goal, but they came up empty each time. The third Surrey-North Shore showdown came in the men’s Under-21 finale where Guildford FC squeaked past West Van 1-0. The seesaw affair was scoreless after 90 minutes, but Guildford made the most of the extra two minutes tacked on at the end for injury time. Defender Adam Karresh, pressed into service in the midfield, found himself in the right spot at the right time to volley a crossing pass from Andrew Malamura into the far side of the goal. “This is huge for North Surrey and for our club,” said Guildford coach Saten Sharma. “It was an outstanding game — back and forth, back and forth. You could tell in the second half that both teams were getting tired, but the game was so intense that both teams knew they couldn’t make a mistake.” Surrey’s fourth B.C. title of the day came in the women’s Classics division where Coastal FC eschewed the drama of other age group finals with a convincing 3-0 win over Gorge. Colleen Haugen and Kerri Hornby each scored first half goals to spot Coastal to a comfortable 2-0 lead at the break. Rather than be satisfied with their early success, Coastal kept the pressure on in the second half and put the game out of reach with a goal off a free kick by Nancy Leard. Coastal now advances to the Western Canada championships in September in Quebec (yes, you read that correctly), while the two Surrey United teams will represent B.C. at the national club championships in Halifax on the Thanksgiving long weekend.

Eagles tame Bearcats to open Royal Bank Cup Michael Booth

Now staff Twitter @boothnow

The B.C. champion Surrey Eagles got off to a flying start at the Royal Bank Cup national junior A hockey championships in Prince Edward Island Sunday afternoon. Any possible jitters were quickly dispelled when South Surrey’s birds of prey feasted on the power play with three goals in the first 15 minutes en route to an emphatic 7-0 win over the Truro Bearcats. Eagles coach Matt Erhart said having an extra day off before starting tournament play worked in Surrey’s favour. “It was nice to have the first day off because we were able to get in an extra practise and get adjusted,” Erhart said. “I don’t know if we would have played as well if we had to play the day before. Everybody got into the game and hopefully knocked all the jitters out.” Erhart added that with the stakes so high on the national stage, there was no danger the Eagles would repeat the slow start they had at the Western Canadians in Nanaimo. In that tourney, the Eagles dropped their first game 4-2 to the Brooks Bandits before recovering to win their final four games, including a 3-1 victory over Brooks in the final. “I can feel something different about the team now that we’re here,” he said. “Everybody knows what’s at stake now and it’s not the same as it was in Nanaimo. The guys are really focused and they watched the games on the first day, which probably helped because even just watching can get the jitters out.”

One of the games the Eagles watched Saturday was a 7-1 romp by Alberta champion Brooks over Truro. Such a result could make the Bearcats a dangerous opponent the following day, but a spate of early power plays quickly took the feistiness out of the Truro players. “We used our speed, which created problems for them and led to the early penalties,” Erhart said. “Of course if we hadn’t scored on those chances, it might have been a different game because they wouldn’t be afraid to take chances and risk getting called for penalties. We played really disciplined and made them pay for it, which naturally made them back off from doing it again.” Demico Hannoun got the Eagles off the ground with a power-play marker 5:22 into the opening frame. Michael Stenerson added an even-strength goal three minutes later and the Eagles were off the races. Two more power-play goals followed — Hannoun’s second of the game and Brady Shaw’s first — and Surrey found themselves with a commanding 4-0 lead 14 minutes into the game. Stefan Burzan and Shaw each tallied in the middle frame before big Craig Wyszomirski pounded home a shot from the point to wrap up the scoring in the third period. Stenerson finished the game with a goal and four assists while Surrey goalie Michael Santaguida stopped all 24 shots he faced to earn the shutout. The Eagles were back on the ice Monday when they took on the host Summerside Capitals.

Obituaries LOCKYER (CHALMERS), Helen Louise MARCH 19, 1922 -APRIL 23, 2013

Passed away peacefully at Cedar Hills in Langley. Predeceased by her loving husband Stan in January of this year. Helen will be greatly missed by all her family and friends. Survived by her daughter Deborah (Duncan) and her three sons Max (Marla), Jay (Linda) and Kelly (Sheryl), 6 grandchildren Jacqui, Kevin, Fiona, Jordan, Stevie, Iain and 2 great-grandchildren Tyson and Chloe. Helen will be remembered by all for her loyalty to friends, her industriousness, love of horses and playing cards. She worked as a welder during WWII, raised calves on the farm, clerked at the Auto and Fraser Valley Auctions and at Fraser Downs Racetrack until she was 90. Helen was a big believer in giving back and supported multiple charities through donations and volunteering. Her favourite charities were the Variety Club and Children’s Hospital. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, a donation be made to one of those charities. It was Helen’s request that no remembrance service be conducted and that her and Stan’s ashes be spread near their old farm in Langley.

AUTOMOTIVE Almanac Drawing Board Jeep Cherokee: Following a 12 model-year absence, Jeep is bringing back the Cherokee name to the lineup (replacing the Liberty). However, this time around the vehicle will look significantly different from the boxy off-roader of old. The front is a modern interpretation of Jeep’s classic slotted grille, while the rest of the vehicle resembles many other tall wagons. The powertrain apparently include a nine-speed automatic transmission.

Asbestos: Dying for dollars In the local building-demolition industry, the lives of workers are put at risk by some companies looking to make a profit see video and website with Tom Zytaruk

Now staff Twitter @tomzytaruk

I

t’s no secret that asbestos is dangerous. But it might come as a surprise how some businessmen willfully put young labourers – college and high school students among them – in serious harm’s way, and just to save a buck. “I have been to many funerals over the years,” said one Surrey consultant, with 25 years in the asbestos abatement business. “It’s like putting a loaded gun to a worker’s head except the exposure doesn’t show up for 20 to 25 to 30 years.” For many years asbestos was considered to be a miracle building material. It’s heat resistant, fire resistant, absorbs sound, resists electrical and chemical damage, and is relatively cheap. The problem is, it’s also poisonous.

Asbestos represents six types of fibrous silicate minerals. These minerals had been used since the late 1800s in North America, in building and construction materials, until their dangers were discovered a few decades ago. Any building constructed prior to 1990 is likely to contain some asbestos and those built before 1984 will contain a lot. Once inhaled, fine particles lodge themselves deep inside the lungs, where their presence over time can lead to horrific diseases like lung cancer, asbestosis and mesothelioma. Workers in the residential demolition business can be protected from exposure if the material is safely identified and removed. Problem is, doing things the right way is more expensive and takes more time than cutting corners, so some developers and owners seek out labs or consultants who are willing to prepare bogus reports that indicate a building contains no asbestos when it is indeed present. see › page 3

Asbestos: special report

‘It’s not a pleasant death – it hurts’ ‹ from page 1

One Surrey consultant, who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of what effect this report might have on his business, said unscrupulous developers motivated by saving money and cutting time have figured out that with a falsified report they can gut the interior of a house before going to get a demolition permit. “There’s a lack of a reporting method for the regulatory board to catch on to,” the consultant said. “It’s like the Wild West. “I have been asked a handful of times every year for 25 years, from different developers or major players, how much money it would cost to change my report,” he said. “Surrey is a hot spot, obviously, because Surrey continues to grow rapidly. Buildings coming down, new development.” Lorne Heslop, owner of a demolition and recycling outfit called Heslop Enterprises Ltd., knows personally the damage inhaling asbestos dust can do. He’s undergone surgery to remove roughly 40 tumours from his lungs. “The problem with asbestos is you don’t see it, smell it or taste it until you can’t breathe any more,” Heslop said. Heslop has been in the building demolition business for more than 35 years and says he trusts only a handful of the more than 30 consultants in the Lower Mainland who provide laboratory analysis of materials suspected of containing asbestos. Some consultants, he said, will report whatever their client wants them to.

M

ike Holloway, of Assertive Excavating & Demolition Ltd., echoed that. “It’s readily available for people to buy false results for Hazmat reports,” Holloway said. “Even if they’re not buying false ones, so-called consultants can just go out and write whatever they want, and it’s not enforced. They’re not taking adequate samples to protect the workers and the public. It’s too easy for us to still be exposed to asbestos.” Heslop advised homeowners to pay attention to some important details when shopping for someone to tear down their old house. Seeing as each city and municipality has its own particular bylaw requirements governing building demolition, Heslop said clients should consult with their local city hall before getting a demolition permit. “The lowest quote is not always the cheapest in the end,” he warned. “Always ask for a minimum of five references and visit at least three of the completed job sites. Walk around and look into any forest or bush area for demolition debris hidden by the contractor.” Heslop strongly advises people in the market for a contractor to chose one with a proven track record of protecting their clients from any liabilities. Clients should also ask the hazardous material consultant and asbestos abatement and demolition contractors to include them on their asbestos-coverage insurance, as a corider. Heslop does so as standard practice, and is covered for $5 million. “That way my clients know I’m protecting them,” he said. “If I screw up, they’re covered. I would like to see consultants have to do the same thing.” If a consultant won’t back up his report, Heslop said, “I’d be very leery of doing business with him.” Heslop added that a “good contractor” will give his clients receipts indicating what material was dumped, and where. “Ultimately, it all falls back on the homeowner, unless he’s on the contractor’s insurance.” Don Whyte, executive director of the Hazardous Materials Association, finds it “extremely frustrating” that there is no certification-training program for test sampling consultants in B.C., like there is in Alberta. His association

Mike Holloway, of Assertive Excavating & Demolition Ltd., says so-called consultants are not taking adequate samples to protect the workers and the public. “It’s too easy for us to still be exposed to asbestos.” (Photo: KEVIN HILL) represents 15 hazardous materials contractors, mostly in the Lower Mainland. “We’re the people who endeavour to do this properly,” he said. “Our contractors are out trying to perform to an industry standard and they’re continuously being undermined by contractors that are not only circumventing the regulations but deliberately circumventing, and sometimes quite sophisticatedly. They’re getting to be very good at it and sometimes they’re smarter than the regulatory agencies.” Whyte said WorkSafe BC doesn’t recognize who’s competent and who’s not when it comes to both contractors and consultants who analyze test samples. “There’s no bridge between WorkSafe BC and the Ministry of the Environment, and there should be. Those two agencies operate in isolation from one another on these issues. There’s a lot that could be done.” Al Johnson, vice-president of Prevention Services, WorkSafe BC, concedes there is a problem with regulating consultants. “You or I could hang out a shingle tomorrow and start up in this business,” he noted. However, he added, certification is not a be-all and endall solution, either. “Just because you have a driver’s licence,” Johnson said, “it doesn’t mean you are driving it correctly.”

C

ertain financial considerations make it tempting for some developers to cut corners. A safety officer with a hazardous material abatement company who, like the consultant, spoke on condition of anonymity, said developers find it cheaper to do business with private labs in the United States, over which B.C. officials have no oversight. “People are getting ‘clean’ reports that are not necessarily clean,” the safety officer said. “Homeowners typically go for the cheapest report. Anybody would. You get what you pay for.” Whyte agreed. “They call them sweatshop labs down there.” Moreover, as Holloway explained, the cost of doing things the right way can be “astronomical” because drywall containing asbestos must be shipped to Alberta. “We can’t accept it in our landfills here. When drywall decomposes, it makes a gas, and their water table in Alberta is lower, it doesn’t leach. Scientifically, it can’t go here.” Because it’s expensive to ship the drywall to Alberta, that’s the reason why you sometimes see it dumped in local parks, at the sides of streets and in ditches. Those consultants and contractors who insist on earning an honest living sometimes feel like they’re pushing a rock

uphill, only to have it roll down again. “The good companies, if they don’t like the report, they will do samples themselves and pay for it out of their own pocket if they have to, to keep the workers safe. The bad companies just demo it, throw it in a box and take it to the dump,” Heslop said. Some operators providing asbestos abatement service do so without any procedures in place or qualifications to assess the risk a house might represent. “I’ve had houses where I know there’s been asbestos,” Heslop said. “I’ve given the owner a price; he’s basically said f-you. And I come back on the weekend, and schoolage kids are in there ripping drywall out that I know is contaminated. I phone up WCB, they come out, shut them down, and decontaminate the kids. The kids go home, and they’ll find out in 20-plus years if they’re alive or dead. They’ve got no recourse. The homeowner might get a fine or he might not. “When they’re 40 and they have a family, they’re going to be on their death bed. And it’s not a pleasant death – it hurts,” Heslop said. “If your kid’s going to work on the weekend removing drywall,” he advised, “pay him $50 to stay home, out of your own pocket.” Al Johnson, of WorkSafe, has 17 inspectors in the Lower Mainland, working six days a week to ensure asbestos is being properly identified and removed during residential building demolitions. “We have had some success in putting some people out of work,” he said. “I think we’ve made some good solid headway.” He pointed out that not all infractions are the result of devious conduct. “In some cases it’s a lack of understanding.” Johnson said the fines for companies caught not properly handling or removing material that contains asbestos range from $2,500 to $500,000. A stop work order is usually the first step, with repeat fines being multiplied by a percentage of the business operator’s payroll. “The larger the company, the larger the fine,” Johnson said. The safety officer, who requested anonymity, believes WorkSafe is trying their best, but added, “It’s like playing whack-a-mole right now.” According to Whyte, roughly 100 houses are being demolished in the Lower Mainland every month. “We just don’t have the manpower to do the enforcement,” he said. Some in the business consider the fines to be light. “A lot of these guys are like ‘that’s just the price of doing business,’” the safety officer said. “Unfortunately, they don’t calculate in the price of these kids’ health or the neighbours’ health, or the people breathing it in as the truck goes down the road.” Whyte and other people in the business think jail time is appropriate, in some cases. “It’s criminal activity,” Whyte said. “These guys should be charged with assault.” He noted that between 1996 and 2005 there were 307 work-related fatalities in B.C., and of those, 145 were asbestos related. That’s 15 victims each year. Holloway agreed. “They should be able to make people do jail time for this. They’re poisoning people.” Heslop said it’s up to the politicians “to sit down and give the proper people authority to actually do something. Like jail time would be nice.” “It would be great to have jail time, but that’s unrealistic.” Imposing severe fines, he figures, is a more practical solution. “If you hit them hard enough, they’ll see it’s cheaper to do it right.”

Half Marathon ! Relay ! Mayor’s 5K ! Kids Fun Run

A week after council asked staff to revisit the current ban on skateboarding and similar methods of locomotion, the City of White Rock has taken measures to deter boarders from cruising down Everall Street. By cutting six sets of grooves into the street from top to bottom, the city’s engineering department is hoping to curb skateboarding and longboarding activities along the thoroughfare. “We looked at that probably a month ago before anything went to council,” said director of engineering and municipal operations Greg St. Louis. “So we had a contractor who started the process but they have to pull off because they needed a better machine to be able to do those grooves.” When asked why staff had decided to move forward with the grooves, officially called “inverted rumble strips,” St. Louis said resident complaints and RCMP concerns were what prompted the city to continue with the deterrence. “The RCMP gave us a list of the top four complaint spots and we chose this spot because we were getting a number of resident complaints as well in the area,” said St. Louis. “So this is a trial to see if this will deter people from skateboarding in the area.” Coun. Larry Robinson, whose notice of motion began the process for staff to revisit the current ban, was surprised to hear about the grooves, adding that council had no knowledge of their installation. “As a council we didn’t know anything about it, but apparently the grooves are an experiment to see if they work,” he said, noting that he was only alerted about the

grooves following calls from residents complaining about the strips. St. Louis affirmed that some residents have been complaining about the strips, but so far, public reaction has been about half and half. “It’s hard to please everybody; however, we have had concerns from some residents as well as the RCMP, so we’re just trying to do this for public safety,” he said, adding that the grooves can easily be filled in if they prove ineffective, or if staff is ordered do so by council. However, Robinson wondered why staff decided to move forward with the action, as he has yet to see any police reports specifically pertaining to skateboarders on Everall. “Apparently it was all justified because there were a lot of accusations of vandalism and threats and all the rest, but I’ve asked for a police report confirming those things and we haven’t seen them yet,” he said. According to Const. Janelle Shoihet of the White Rock RCMP, there have been several reported incidents of theft from vehicles, damage to vehicles and mischief along Everall in the past few months. “Whether or not we can say that’s related to boarders is difficult to say,” she said. Robinson said staff may have been hasty in acting upon resident complaints, noting that there needs to be more linking skateboarders with vandalism than supposition. “If there are vandalism and threats, our actions need to be based on police reports,” he said. City staff is expected to bring recommendations to council regarding the current ban on boarding and cruising in White Rock at a later council meeting.

Substance abuse tackled at awareness-week events Jacob Zinn

Kick Up Your Heels

Toward the end of this month, the City of Surrey will host its third annual Substance Use Awareness Week (SUAW) to educate residents about the dangers of drugs and alcohol, and how to prevent one’s self from succumbing to addiction. As acting mayor, Coun. Judy Villeneuve proclaimed May 26 to June 1 as SUAW at last Monday’s council meeting. The seven-day campaign is part of the city’s crime reduction strategy as a way to address a wide range of addiction issues. In addition to illicit drugs and excessive consumption of alcohol, the campaign – in partnership with Alcohol and Drug Education Services, Fraser Health and eight other groups – will inform Surreyites of other addictions such as gambling, prescription medication and online games. “Addiction transcends age and gender, economic status and neighbourhood, culture and personality,” said Deb Cameron of the

Surrey school district, who presented on the awareness week at council. “The spirit of our SUAW is to bring this issue to light as a real struggle for many members of our community, and to encourage and grace those in need of support.” The city will distribute comprehensive fact sheets with such themes as substance abuse and body image and parenting via the city’s website (surrey.ca), Facebook page (facebook. com/TheCityofSurrey), Twitter account (@TheCityOfSurrey). On May 30, the city will set up an information booth at Central City Shopping Centre from 3 to 6 p.m. City workers will provide information about such related topics as synthetic drug labs how to spot a grow-op. A parent education night on addictions is scheduled for May 29 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Earl Marriott Secondary, as well as an education session on May 30 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Sources in White Rock. The city is also encouraging campaign partners, local businesses and community groups to host their own SUAW events with an event toolkit, available at the city’s website.

NEWS In brief

Killer driver pleads guilty to 2010 incident The driver who killed a White Rock man who was delivering newspapers with his teenaged son has pleaded guilty to dangerous driving causing death, and also to assaulting the boy. Bryan McCron was getting newspapers from the back of his car on July 19, 2010 when Allan Simpson Wood struck and killed him. When McCron’s 16-year-old son Connor called 911, Wood punched him in the face. Wood was originally charged with impaired driving causing death, failure to provide a sample, assault, and dangerous driving causing death. The impaired driving charge and refusal charge will be stayed. Wood pleaded guilty to the assault and dangerous driving causing death charges Monday in Surrey provincial court. He will be back in court June 3. Markita Kaulius, of Families For Justice Society, was in court Monday. “One of the sad notes of Bryan McCron’s story was that he was to be married just five days later,” Kaulius noted. “His sister Vicki Macri went from having his wedding reception in her

backyard to hold his funeral reception. No family should ever have to do this.”

Body of missing White Rock man found A body discovered by two campers on May 5 has been identified as that of missing White Rock man David Klammer by the B.C. Coroners Service. According to Revelstoke RCMP, two campers discovered Klammer’s body about 10 kilometres south of Shelter Bay on May 5, nearly six months after he was reported missing. Klammer was believed to have been travelling from his parent’s house in Saskatchewan to his home in White Rock when he went missing in October. A few weeks later, Klammer’s car and backpack were found on a logging road near Revelstoke, prompting Revelstoke RCMP and Search and Rescue crews to conduct a search of the area, which came up negative. Both the Coroner Services and the RCMP said the death is not suspicious.

A proposal in the U.S. senate to look at charging Canadians a fee for crossing the border has been put out to pasture. Last month, Congress was asked to consider looking at a fee for anyone crossing into the U.S. by land via Canada and Mexico. The fee was suggested by the Department of Homeland Security as a potential way to recover funding following

However, following criticism on both sides of the border by various boards of trades and politicians, the senate’s judiciary committee has decided to ban the idea altogether. “It does not take a study to know that charging Canadian relatives, friends, tourists, business people and shoppers a fee to enter the United States is a bad idea,” wrote Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy, chair of the committee, on his website. “I do not

B.C. politics

An election for the ages, either way InTheHouse Keith Baldrey

I

t’s always challenging filing a column on the eve of an election since, by the time most people read it, they have either already voted or know the election’s outcome. So predictions can be a precarious proposition. However, I will offer one prediction: this election will go down as one of the most pivotal ones in B.C. history. One of two scenarios will occur: either the B.C. Liberals will mount one of the most stunning political comebacks in Canadian history, or the NDP will pull off what it doesn’t do very often in this province – actually winning an election. Throw in the very real prospect that a third party (the Greens) and more than one independent could be elected and the stage is set for a historically important vote. Both of the major parties are at a crossroads. The NDP, according to reputable pollsters such as

Ipsos Reid and Angus Reid, had a strong lead in public support heading into the campaign’s final days. The prospect of an election win looks to be the best in more than 20 years, and if the party drops the ball on the goal line and loses, the ramifications could be huge. If the NDP can’t win under the current circumstances – facing an unpopular leader of an unpopular government, and leading in the polls for so long – the question of whether the party can ever win will come up, and I’m not sure what the answer will be for many people. The B.C. Liberals face possible extinction if they can’t pull off a miracle win, or at the very least win enough seats to form a credible Opposition. We’ve seen the so-called “free enterprise coalition” fall apart and disappear before (see: Social Credit party). This brings us to the two leaders. If the NDP loses, Dix will undoubtedly face many critics within his own ranks. The NDP is very good at taking down its leaders at the slightest sign of weakness (see: Mike Harcourt, Glen Clark and Carole James) and Dix may

well face a revolt of some kind. However, it may be Christy Clark who faces the sharpest knives. If she wins, then those knives will of course be sheathed, at least for a while. But if she loses, the focus will be on how many seats she delivered and whether they are enough to save her leadership. Will 25 seats be enough? Or 30? Or 35? I suspect if the party slips below 25 seats, the sands start shifting under her feet. This election will also be studied by political scientists for other reasons, notably the contrasting styles the two parties took through the campaign. The B.C. Liberals ran an angry, relentlessly negative campaign that routinely issued false and misleading statements about all kinds of

things. Clark was called on this by the media – national columnists such as Gary Mason from the Globe and Mail and Brian Hutchinson from the National Post wrote scathing columns, and Global BC and other news outlets conducted “reality checks” that questioned the B.C. Liberal claims. Yet, for all the criticism, the B.C. Liberals actually went up in public support (according to the polls) using this approach. If they ultimately win the election, will the analysis be that an angry and inaccurate campaign (filled with relentless personal attacks on the other party’s leader and various candidates) wins these things and therefore should be the model for subsequent contests? Of course, an NDP

victory may offer another source of analysis for political scientists. The NDP ran a mostly positive campaign that stressed their platform, and only at the end did the party switch gears and hurl grenades at the B.C. Liberal track record. At no time, however, did the party engage in the kind of personal attacks that were routinely part of the other camp’s strategy. But the NDP lost ground during the campaign, according to those polls. A once insurmountable lead

shrunk to single digits. Does that suggest people aren’t inspired by the positive approach, and are lured by the negative? We should know the answers to these questions about 9 p.m. on election night. Whatever the outcome, it’s bound to have an impact far greater and further reaching than the last two elections, and many more before them.

Earthquake prep bogus Tom Zytaruk Reporter

L

ine up for your kids, folks, the big one’s hit. What a joke. If what I witnessed at my kids’ elementary school last Friday afternoon was even remotely representative of this government’s concept of earthquake emergency preparedness, we’re all screwed. Behold, the spectacle. Classes were let out early to accommodate an earthquake drill. Apparently it was National Emergency Preparedness Week. The children were sat down on the field, beside pylons I think, corralled inside an area cordoned off with tape. At one side of this, there were several folding tables, under some tents.

School staff milled about in orange vests, while great long lineups of parents snaked out from these tables, waiting to pick up their children. As I walked up to these lines, I spotted my boys in the section V to Z. “Hey guys,” I called out, walking right by them. They looked bored. Anyway, I joined the line. After about 20 minutes, it was my turn at the “Check In” table. After some fiddling through a files box, I was then directed to a second “Check Out” table where my boys and I were finally re-acquainted. They looked embarrassed. I take some solace that my wife wasn’t there. You see, when she was a young girl, she and her family lived in a tent for about a month after a massive earthquake hit Guatemala City in 1976, killing 23,000 people and injuring 76,000. And that was a 7.5. They’re expecting a

bigger one here, on the West Coast. I’m glad she didn’t see this sorry thing they called a drill. It probably would have brought tears to her eyes. Perhaps this plan looked fine on paper, making some deputy minister somewhere happy. In reality, it was surreal. Honestly, cordons, tables, tents, files boxes and such? This is really going to happen, after the big one hits? In a real earthquake, parents would grab their kids straight away, some probably yanking their youngsters away by the arm, as this shoddy excuse for a plan collapsed into chaos faster than you can say the word. A cynic might well suspect the government just wants people to believe it’s prepared for a major earthquake. Look, people, drills. Now sleep tight. I don’t know what’s scarier – that scenario, or the possibility they really believe they’re ready.

The Editor, I just finished reading your frontpage story, “For Mother’s Day, I just want him to say, ‘Mom,’” the Now, May 9. This was a beautiful story and it touched my heart as I too am a mom with a son on the autism spectrum. There are many places in the world that are helping to heal and recover children and they do not have to be so sick and struggling so much. The unfortunate reality in B.C. is the lack of funding for autism intervention as well as a lack of knowledge of many physicians treating these children medically. Thank you again for the story and allowing autism to have a voice. Charity Tait

No parking in park The Editor, Re: “More parking, less park?” the

Now, May 2. I strongly agree with Coun. Linda Hepner’s statement, “...I’m wondering why they don’t do a two-tiered parking structure on the property that they have.” Parking is none other but their problem. Surrounding residences should be protected by residentsonly parking. Ms. Hepner, as chair of parks, recreation, etc., is cognizant of the people’s wishes, which were vociferously indicated in the 2009 “Save Bear Creek Park” initiative. To give up park space for non-park users’ benefit is ludicrous. Parking is their problem. In the first place, the parking area should never have been opened after-hours for such usage, and whomever in City of Surrey gave the go-ahead for this use made a grave error, which is now compounding itself. Is it time to resurrect the “Save Bear Creek Park” petitions? Annie Kaps, Surrey

The new pediatric emergency department is scheduled to open in October as part of the new Critical Care tower editorial by George Garrett Photo: Nurse manager Leeann Taylor

Nurse manager Leeann Taylor – who spent 10 years nursing in maternity says the excitement is about the opening of a new pediatric emergency department. Years in the planning and construction stages, the project is now nearing completion. Taylor uses the analogy of a pregnancy saying the project is now in its second trimester and about to come to full term. The new pediatric emergency department is scheduled to open in October as part of the new Critical Care tower at Surrey Memorial. It will be part of an emergency department with a separate area for children. Families will now be able to come into a safe, secure, pediatric-focused area.

Nurse-manager Taylor is enthusiastic not only about her staff and the dedication they bring to the job but can’t wait to work in the new kidfriendly environment, complete with TV and video games. She said they want to make it as family-friendly as possible. Kids can write or draw on bedside tables, images that can easily be erased.

That’s consistent with Surrey’s rapid growth. 4200 babies are born at the hospital each year, the equivalent of half a kindergarten class a day. Taylor says, “That’s a lot of children born in Surrey and we want to make sure that we are ready to care for them.”

Taylor’s enthusiasm for her work and that of her team shines through. She says, “Every day I say …oh my goodness. I can’t imagine being anywhere else. It’s great. The program we are offering, the hard work we are doing. The teamwork. The camaraderie. It’s all second to none in my opinion.”

Families will have individual rooms, more than double the size of current spaces. Taylor said that will mean more room for families to be with their children during difficult and scary times. The kids stay in their rooms and families are welcome to stay all the time. The emergency department currently treats about 18,000 children a year and that number is expected to grow to 25,000 emergency room visits just for children alone.

There’s an air of expectancy at Surrey Memorial Hospital and it’s not just because the hospital delivers more than 4,000 babies each year.

COMMUNITY Charity

‘Legacy gift’ to help youth when Surrey woman no longer can Tom Zillich

Now staff Twitter @tomzillich

Joan Webster gave her time to charity, but hadn’t immediately considered leaving a “legacy gift” for that particular organization. Since February, the South Surrey resident has served as a volunteer with Covenant House, which operates a drop-in centre for youth living on the streets of Vancouver. “The youth come in from a night on the streets for food and respite,” said Webster, an “empty-nester” whose husband, Tom Webster, is CFO of First West Credit Union. “Most importantly, they seek advice and support of the youth workers, for all kinds of needs, proving that they still need adults in their life. They remind me of my own children, and I was wishing that I could do more to help them.” Around that time, someone told Webster about the possibility of her including a “legacy gift” for Covenant House in her will, “to continue to support this

wonderful organization when I no longer can.” Last week, Webster told the Now she will be changing her will to include a donation of up to $100,000 for Covenant House. Women are more likely to have wills than men, according to a recent Mustel Group survey that suggested 54 per cent of women have wills compared to 47 per cent of men. Of those who have wills, 58 per cent of interviewees said they had not considered donating a portion of their assets to charity upon death. Leave A Legacy, a national public awareness program created in 1993, is designed to encourage people to leave a gift through their will, or any other gift-planning instrument, to a charity or non-profit organization of their choice. Program operators have chosen May as “Leave a Legacy Month,” to raise awareness. Over the next 20 years, the organization says up to $1.5 trillion is expected to change hands via wills. A website (www. leavealegacyvancouver.

com) has been set up to help people like Webster with “legacy gift” questions. “It’s a chance to give back,” Webster said. “I’d never thought about it.”

The youth come in from a night on the streets for food and respite (at drop-in centre operated by Covenant House).… They remind me of my own children, and I was wishing that I could do more to help them.

70-plus awards given at event hosted by Surrey RCMP

Surrey

More than 70 awards were presented to Surrey Mounties, city staff and local residents Wednesday night at the Surrey RCMP Officer in Charge Awards. The ceremony was held at the Surrey Arts Centre. Among those recognized were a taxi driver who helped police track down a hit-and-run suspect, officers who disarmed an armed man at a laundromat, police and staff for their efforts to address the struggles of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered youth, and officers

who went above and beyond the call of duty,” Chief Supt.

Dear Friend I’m about to make you a deal that’s hard to refuse if you’ve got an “older” (and probably less than optimally efficient) furnace. I’ll replace your old furnace AND heat pump as a “package deal” for at least $3136.00 less than you would pay any other time of the year. Sound too good to be true? It’s not and here’s why. I’m making you what sounds like an unbelievable offer because it actually makes good sense for my business. And you come out a winner, as well! You see, I know from experience that in my slowest months I actually end up losing money ... then I have to spend the rest of the year trying to make up for it. Right now, I have no reason to believe 2013 will be any different. That’s why I’ve decided to give up trying to make a profit during these months and minimize my losses ... so I can come out ahead the rest of the year. So here’s how I can make the incredible offer at the top of this letter. Every year the biggie furnace manufacturers guesstimate how many furnaces to produce. Since there’s no way of knowing what the weather will be like and other factors that affect sales, these guys always have leftover inventory they have to hold onto until the next heating season. I saw a great business opportunity in this and went to one of these biggie companies (they won’t allow me to use their name in this letter) and contracted for the purchase of these furnaces that were going to just be sitting around. Plus, I bought 23 heat pumps all in the 3 most popular sizes used in Lower Mainland homes. Because of the number I bought and the time of year I purchased them, I got an unbelievable deal ... rock-bottom prices. Don’t get me wrong - these are brandnew, top quality, 2013 models. Not “seconds.” Not “blems.” Not builder-grade. These are premium furnaces and heat pumps fresh from a name-brand factory with a full factory warranty. How to Get Your Name Brand Furnace for Virtually Nothing By putting together this furnace-plusheat pump package (I call it the “Hottest AND Coolest Deal of the Century”), going through some heavy negotiations with the

Local Business Owner

manufacturer, and then committing to buying 23 systems outright, I got BOTH the furnace AND the heat pump at a price that would have made Sam Walton proud. This means when you buy one of these 23 new, premiumquality heat pumps I will “give” you the furnace and ask you to pay only the $1181 in labor it costs to install your furnace. Pick up your phone right now Simply call me at 946-1000 at anytime so I can come out and measure your home (to see if I’ve got the proper size unit). Remember ... I’ve got only 23 matched systems in 3 sizes so you’ll want to let me know VERY SOON that you’re interested. When these 23 systems are gone, they’re gone, and this offer is null and void. Call me right now so we can get the ball rolling! As part of the deal, I’ll show you how much the heat pump costs ... how much the furnace WOULD have cost ... and your savings when you buy your new heat pump and furnace as part of this special offer. The price I show you will include all installation materials and labor. There’s no fine print, nothing left out. Earlier I said that making you this amazing offer is also good business for me The way I look at it, by letting YOU win big now, I’ll win at the end of the year. And I won’t have to “make up” for the lost sales during my slowest months. I figure if I make you an absolutely irresistible offer .. if your furnace is pushing 8 years or more ... and if I barely mark up the price I paid, I’ll accomplish 2 major objectives that will allow me to reduce my losses the rest of the year. I’ll be able to ... • Pay my overhead (rent, utilities, insurance and taxes) during the slow period • Keep my service & installation technicians busy enough to pay them to work instead of sit at home. As you can see, when you take me up on my “Hottest AND Coolest Deal of the Century,” EVERYONE IS A WINNER! And by the way, there’s no obligation when you have me come out to measure your house and explain the installation If you decide you don’t want to take advantage of this incredible deal (although I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t want to save this kind of money), it’s no problem. You’re not obligated in any way. In fact, just for taking time to read this letter and having me out to survey your house ... I’ll give you a

Very Special Free Gift Coupon ($50 value). Why? Even if we don’t do business together now, I want you to remember us in the future. If you’re thinking a new furnace (& heat pump) isn’t in your budget - don’t worry! You don’t have to pay me right now Because I’ve tried to think of every reason possible why you WOULDN’T take me up on this spectacular offer, I’ve even made arrangements for a super bank rate financing plan. And I’m not “marking up” the interest rate like so many other companies do. While I can’t promise you this, it’s possible that with this financing plan your monthly investments in a new system could be more than paid for by the savings you see on your monthly utility bills. My Disappointment-Proof Guarantee Talking about lower utility bills, I’m so sure you’ll see at least a 25% cut in your heating and cooling bills (in reality, it may be more like 35%+), if you don’t I’ll pay you twice the difference for 2 years. Not only are you getting a new, firstquality furnace virtually free, plus a firstquality heat pump at a great price, I guarantee you’ll lower your heating and cooling bills by at least 25% or I’ll pay you double your savings for 2 years. (This alone should convince you that these systems are some of the very best quality and most efficient available). But you’ve got to act fast ... call me at 946-1000 right now! This offer ends May 15th no matter what Don’t wait to call me. Here’s why. I have only 8 of each of the 3 sizes. When all of the air conditioners are sold and all the furnaces “given away” in a certain size, the “Hottest AND Coolest Deal of the Century” is over. And if I still have any of the 23 systems left on May 31st, this offer still ends. The reason is that my business only slows down for a short time. Since these furnaces cost me so little, if I’ve got any left, I’ll sell them next winter at last year’s prices and still come out ahead. So call me right now at 946-1000 Thanking you in advance, Scott Campbell Owner P.S. Remember, there’s no obligation and even if you change your mind once I measure your house and give you the estimate - you still get that Free Gift Coupon worth $50.

604-534-5336 *W.A.C. - with approved credit. Cannot be combined with other offers.

**This offer applies with purchase of heat pump heating and air conditioning system

FOREVER YOUNG Art Kube

A leading voice for B.C. seniors calls Surrey home “Seniors are an asset to society, not a burden,” said Kube. “We believe seniors and their organizations must have continuing involvement in ensuring that policies affecting their lives are fair and just.” Early on in the current provincial election campaign, COSCO sent questionnaires to candidates asking where they stand on seniors’ issues. “We have heard nothing from any Green candidate, and only one Liberal candidate has responded,” Kube said Friday. “By comparison, we have heard back from most Conservative candidates and we received a comprehensive response from the BC NDP.”

Tom Zillich

Now staff Twitter @tomzillich

Few seniors are as active as Art Kube – politically active, that is. The retired Surrey resident, 78, is president of Council of Senior Citizens’ Organizations of B.C. (COSCO), a federation of 86 groups representing 80,000 seniors in the province. It’s close to a full-time “job” for Kube, who volunteers his time with the organization. Last fall, COSCO was an organizer of a two-day national conference in Richmond called “The Joys and Tears of Living Longer.”

A key political issue for seniors is improving home support services, he said. “Over the last decade, home support services have been cut by 30 per cent,” Kube said. “This has forced many seniors into Art Kube residential care before their time.” Kube, who lives in the Fleetwood area, has fought for the rights of workers since arriving in Canada as an 18-year-old ship

worker from Poland. He was active in the Steel Workers Union and also served as president of the B.C. Federation of Labour in the mid-1980s. Today, Kube is proud to be a voice for seniors. “We (seniors) have no desire to be put into expensive facilities where we can vegetate and wait to die,” he wrote in a letter to the Now last June, during Seniors’ Week. “We want to fully participate, advocate on public issues, fulfill our responsibilities as citizens and help to create a more civil society for our children and grandchildren. And we must be involved in planning our own futures.”

Surrey United teams repeat as B.C. champs Michael Booth

Surrey 3, North Shore 0. Those were the results in both goals and titles won at the Provincial Cup club soccer finals in Victoria Saturday. Surrey United successfully defended their B.C. crowns in the men’s and women’s A finals with 1-0 wins over North Shore opponents while Guildford FC downed West Van by an identical score line to win the men’s Under-21 silverware. South Surrey’s Coastal FC also loaded up a trophy for the return trip to the mainland after knocking off Victoria Gorge 3-0 in the women’s Classics (35+) finale. In the women’s A final, Surrey United stretched their dominance to a full decade with their 10th consecutive Cup title by beating the North Shore Renegades 1-0. “It’s funny because you don’t really realize how impressive the streak is until you look at the list of Cup winners and it’s got a long list saying Surrey United,” said Surrey coach Leigh Sembaluk. “You see that and you can’t help but think, ‘That’s not bad at all.’” Surrey opened the scoring in the 30th minute when the ball deflected off the hands of the North Shore goalkeeper and onto the feet of Chelsey Hannesson, who quickly deposited it into the back of the goal. Surrey carried the play for the remainder of the opening half and most of the final frame before North Shore began to push hard for the equalizer. At one moment it looked like their efforts were rewarded when North Shore forced the ball out of the hands of Surrey keeper Theresa Nuttall, but the goal was called off immediately by the referee. In the men’s A final, the Surrey United Firefighters completed a sweep of the marquee games of the day by edging West Van 1-0. Surrey began the game in fine form and caught a break in the fifth minute. With nothing but open field ahead of him, Angus Burke was brought down hard by the last West Van defender, who was subsequently ejected with a red card. Colin Streckmann

stroked home the ensuing penalty kick to give Surrey an early 1-0 lead. “It was the correct call and the resulting penalty kick was a goal,” said Surrey coach Rob Reed. “It was a very odd way to start a game; I don’t think I’ve ever seen that happen before. It was the correct call and to be honest, after that West Van adjusted and played a remarkable game.” West Van’s best chance to equalize came 15 minutes into the second half when Surrey goalkeeper Andrew Fink stopped a penalty kick. After that, the Firemen had several chances to ice the game with a second goal, but they came up empty each time. The third Surrey-North Shore showdown came in the men’s Under-21 finale where Guildford FC squeaked past West Van 1-0. The seesaw affair was scoreless after 90 minutes, but Guildford made the most of the extra two minutes tacked on at the end for injury time. Defender Adam Karresh, pressed into service in the midfield, found himself in the right spot at the right time to volley a crossing pass from Andrew Malamura into the far side of the goal. “This is huge for North Surrey and for our club,” said Guildford coach Saten Sharma. “It was an outstanding game — back and forth, back and forth. You could tell in the second half that both teams were getting tired, but the game was so intense that both teams knew they couldn’t make a mistake.” Surrey’s fourth B.C. title of the day came in the women’s Classics division where Coastal FC eschewed the drama of other age group finals with a convincing 3-0 win over Gorge. Colleen Haugen and Kerri Hornby each scored first half goals to spot Coastal to a comfortable 2-0 lead at the break. Rather than be satisfied with their early success, Coastal kept the pressure on in the second half and put the game out of reach with a goal off a free kick by Nancy Leard. Coastal now advances to the Western Canada championships in September in Quebec (yes, you read that correctly), while the two Surrey United teams will represent B.C. at the national club championships in Halifax on the Thanksgiving long weekend.

Eagles tame Bearcats to open Royal Bank Cup Michael Booth

Now staff Twitter @boothnow

The B.C. champion Surrey Eagles got off to a flying start at the Royal Bank Cup national junior A hockey championships in Prince Edward Island Sunday afternoon. Any possible jitters were quickly dispelled when South Surrey’s birds of prey feasted on the power play with three goals in the first 15 minutes en route to an emphatic 7-0 win over the Truro Bearcats. Eagles coach Matt Erhart said having an extra day off before starting tournament play worked in Surrey’s favour. “It was nice to have the first day off because we were able to get in an extra practise and get adjusted,” Erhart said. “I don’t know if we would have played as well if we had to play the day before. Everybody got into the game and hopefully knocked all the jitters out.” Erhart added that with the stakes so high on the national stage, there was no danger the Eagles would repeat the slow start they had at the Western Canadians in Nanaimo. In that tourney, the Eagles dropped their first game 4-2 to the Brooks Bandits before recovering to win their final four games, including a 3-1 victory over Brooks in the final. “I can feel something different about the team now that we’re here,” he said. “Everybody knows what’s at stake now and it’s not the same as it was in Nanaimo. The guys are really focused and they watched the games on the first day, which probably helped because even just watching can get the jitters out.”

One of the games the Eagles watched Saturday was a 7-1 romp by Alberta champion Brooks over Truro. Such a result could make the Bearcats a dangerous opponent the following day, but a spate of early power plays quickly took the feistiness out of the Truro players. “We used our speed, which created problems for them and led to the early penalties,” Erhart said. “Of course if we hadn’t scored on those chances, it might have been a different game because they wouldn’t be afraid to take chances and risk getting called for penalties. We played really disciplined and made them pay for it, which naturally made them back off from doing it again.” Demico Hannoun got the Eagles off the ground with a power-play marker 5:22 into the opening frame. Michael Stenerson added an even-strength goal three minutes later and the Eagles were off the races. Two more power-play goals followed — Hannoun’s second of the game and Brady Shaw’s first — and Surrey found themselves with a commanding 4-0 lead 14 minutes into the game. Stefan Burzan and Shaw each tallied in the middle frame before big Craig Wyszomirski pounded home a shot from the point to wrap up the scoring in the third period. Stenerson finished the game with a goal and four assists while Surrey goalie Michael Santaguida stopped all 24 shots he faced to earn the shutout. The Eagles were back on the ice Monday when they took on the host Summerside Capitals.

Obituaries LOCKYER (CHALMERS), Helen Louise MARCH 19, 1922 -APRIL 23, 2013

Passed away peacefully at Cedar Hills in Langley. Predeceased by her loving husband Stan in January of this year. Helen will be greatly missed by all her family and friends. Survived by her daughter Deborah (Duncan) and her three sons Max (Marla), Jay (Linda) and Kelly (Sheryl), 6 grandchildren Jacqui, Kevin, Fiona, Jordan, Stevie, Iain and 2 great-grandchildren Tyson and Chloe. Helen will be remembered by all for her loyalty to friends, her industriousness, love of horses and playing cards. She worked as a welder during WWII, raised calves on the farm, clerked at the Auto and Fraser Valley Auctions and at Fraser Downs Racetrack until she was 90. Helen was a big believer in giving back and supported multiple charities through donations and volunteering. Her favourite charities were the Variety Club and Children’s Hospital. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, a donation be made to one of those charities. It was Helen’s request that no remembrance service be conducted and that her and Stan’s ashes be spread near their old farm in Langley.

BC Rehab Gert Vorsteher Memorial Awards honour people’s spirit and help them to build a new future

Rehab award for effort, attitude

Richard Morrison, who broke his spine in an accident during a rec hockey game last spring, still loves hockey and as he regains strength and mobility – more than doctors Kevin Hill Photo expected – he keeps as active as possible, enjoys time with his kids and has plans to return to work too, albeit in a different field than before.

Gert Vorsteher Memorial Award comes with $5,000 cheque, which will help local man be independent

Carolyn Cooke Staff writer

Richard Morrison was thrilled to be honoured with the BC Rehab Gert Vorsteher Memorial Award last week. The award is given each year to eight recipients from around the province who have shown an outstanding effort in their rehab to rise above extreme challenges and demonstrate remarkable determination to pursue their rehabilitation goals and, in turn, regained their own form of independence. “It’s always nice to be recognized,” Morrison said. “It’s more than just me – it’s obviously a whole team.”

Morrison, who at the time of his accident, lived in White Rock with his family and was in the process of becoming a real estate agent. During a rec league hockey game about a year ago, he fell and slowly slid into the boards. Unfortunately, it broke his spine – compressed, fractured and dislocated two vertebrae actually – and threw his and his family’s lives upside down in an instant. Before that, he had driven a handyDART bus for about six years, a job that helped him become well-known throughout the area. From the ice, Morrison was taken to hospital, where he spent about five to six weeks in the spinal ward before being moved to GF Strong Rehabilitation Centre in Vancouver, where he spent four-and-a-half months. He worked with

both a physiotherapist and an occupational therapist, both of whom were so impressed with Morrison’s attitude and efforts, they nominated him for the Gert Vorsteher award. “During his rehab at GF Strong, Richard worked tremendously hard each and every day despite his at times fluctuating physical health. He consistently pushed his therapists to create ways for him to improve his function, and that would increase his independence,” said physiotherapist Grant Huston. “His love of hockey, and exercise in general, meant that he gravitated to practising movement and doing his workouts.” see ATTITUDE, page B3

story continued from page B1 But rehab is more than just physical workouts. “The perseverance that Richard and his wife Sheila showed to find, finance and renovate a new home to live in was considerable,” said occupational therapist Nigel Kam. “Richard, as well as Sheila, and their extensive network of friends, put forth an amazing collective effort to make sure they could return back to their community. Without this, it would be unlikely that he would have been able to return home to be with his wife and kids.” The Morrisons had to sell their White Rock apartment – which Richard wouldn’t have been able to even enter anymore – and scrambled to find a new home in the area so their two children could stay in their same school. They found an affordable trailer nearby in South Surrey and had it outfitted with a ramp and other necessary equipment. The $5,000 cheque that comes with the rehab award will be most useful. They plan to upgrade Richard’s computer, which he uses with a sip and puff apparatus, so he can use voice-activated software and eventually find work with it too. “You can look at it one of two ways: good or bad. I like to say I’m mostly good and I have about 80/20 good days to bad days,” he said. “The way I look at if for me, I’m lucky I’m still here. “Working with handyDART, I saw people way worse off than me. You just put it all into perspective.” In particular, he said his wife Sheila is amazing in how much she has taken on since the accident, and they were surprised at all the offers of help. Plus the Surrey Eagles have done yardwork and the Vancouver Canucks gave them tickets to a game, dinner and a jersey. “We want to thank everyone for all the support,” Sheila and Richard said. ccooke@thenownewspaper.com

It’s spring and with the recent outstanding weather, people have taken to their gardens to get things ready. It is said that time spent in a garden can nurture the mind, body and spirit. It can be a solo effort or an opportunity to connect with others. But any way you “dig it,” have I got great news for you! There are many community initiatives to get involved with. Firstly, there is a Disabled Independent Gardeners Association (DIGA). In 2003, Sam Sullivan brought the association back to working order. Sam, at age 19, became a quadriplegic after a skiing accident and has continued to bring to light the abilities of people rather than focusing on disabilities. DIGA is again flourishing, continuing to develop meaningful experiences in gardening for people with disabilities. Pursuing their passion for gardening is something that many people with disabilities never imagined possible because of the many physical barri-

ers. DIGA works to remove those barriers. Contact them at 604-688-6464 or email at diga@disabilityfoundation.org. Can You Dig It (CYDI) was launched in 2009 by posAbilities (not our award-winning paper), a wonderful not-for-profit community living service provider. Offering a way to “create opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities to experience social and economic inclusion through produce gardening.” CYDI was created for supported individuals to get involved with designing, building and co-ordinating the gardens. It has grown to include seniors and others who might need a place to belong. These gardens allow people to grow their own organic food, but more importantly they give back to community centres, food programs or banks that may provide much needed meals to those in the community. Can You Dig It has many community gardens all over the Lower Mainland and will have an astounding 30 gardens by the end of summer. I urge you to get involved with a garden near you! Email Can You Dig It at info@cydi.ca or check out cydi.ca. Kim Rose is a consultant and contributing columnist for Possabilities.

Employment really matters

Milieu Family Services held a recognition dinner in March for businesses that employed their individuals. It was such a good turnout with many employers in attendance. Everyone had the opportunity to get to know each other outside of the work place and make new connections with others. We were all given the opportunity to speak. We were able to show our employers and support workers, in our own words, how much we have appreciated all their support and guidance in getting us employed. As employees, we are really thankful and want everyone to know that having a job makes us feel like we have a purpose in life. It shows people that even with disabilities, we are determined to work like everyone else. We may have to overcome certain obstacles, but we can do it with the right support systems. Our jobs are part of our support systems because they make us feel valued and help boost our confindence levels. It helps create motivation to get up in the morning. I always look forward to the days when I go to work.

Abneet Dhaliwal

Overall, the dinner was a great benefit to everyone. The speeches, the slideshow and the certificates from Milieu to all employers definitely made big impacts. We always want our employers to know how much gratitude we have for our opportunities. The employers were also really expressive in their thanks for being honoured. We can all have a good quality of life if we work toward it; after all, there are bountiful opportunities out there for each and every one of us. My peers and I would like to thank Milieu also for hosting the event and endlessly supporting us to feel like valued members of the community. Milieu never gives up in helping us feel really valued and they always encourage us to attain our goals. We all have to strive to achieve to be our best in everything we do. It is up to us to seek those chances. Like me, you should not give up on searching for ways to make you feel like you fit in. Without expecting it, finding that sense of belonging with my employment made me stronger and more independent. We are all valued and we are all special in our own ways. It’s always good to keep in mind, coming from my experience, that there are endless opportunities out there for everybody.

Child-specific physio clinic opens in Central Surrey Kids Physio Group has just opened a second location in North Surrey. The chain of pediatric physiotherapy clinics is the one designed exclusively for children. Since opening its first location on Fraser Street in Vancouver in 2006, it has expanded to keep pace with demand. “We are very excited about the space as it provides us with the ability to grow and offer new and innovative therapies to our clients,” said Laura Patrick, founder of Kids Physio Group. “This location is not only going to be more accessible for our clients from around Metro Vancouver and the Lower Mainland, but it is also fully wheelchair accessible and built just for kids.” The Surrey location, at Unit 302-14351 104th Ave., has a large expansive gross motor studio area outfitted with custom pediatric physiotherapy equipment. In 2011, Nitin Ambardar joined Kids Physio Group as a physiotherapist. He was so impressed with the quality of service offered by the team, he approached Patrick with the idea of expanding to Surrey.
