Unprecedented road, bridge and rail work is either underway or set to start, changing Surrey forever. Major transit improvements are also promised. The Leader takes an in-depth look at transportation issues as the city nears a critical turning point that will map the future of how we move.

SURREY I N F O C US

A city of learning From a one-room schoolhouse to the largest student population in B.C., Surrey has grown into a major city with an education system featuring an array of options for residents of every age and ability. The Leader takes an in-depth look at the rapid growth and challenges, and how stakeholders at the elementary, high school and postsecondary levels strive to meet the needs of learners.

A city in evolution From humble beginnings as a logging and farming community a century ago, Surrey has become the second-largest city in B.C., with a population of 400,000. The Leader takes an in-depth look at the city’s rapid growth and the challenges arising – for today and tomorrow.

Job facts Q It’s forecast that over the next 12 years, B.C. is going to have a million job vacancies to fill, about half of those because of growth in the economy and half of them because of retiring baby boomers.

SAA scholarships Q Last year, Surrey high school students earned the most trades scholarships of any B.C. school district. Q With 10 per cent of the student population, local graduates took 16 per cent of the 470 Secondary School Apprenticeship awards handed out. To receive an SSA scholarship, a student must: Q Register for the program with the Industry Training Authority; Q Graduate from high school with a C+ average or better on Grade 12 level courses; Q Complete a minimum of 480 hours of paid work as an apprentice as part of their graduation program; Q Still be apprenticing six months after graduation, either in the workplace or enrolled in a post-secondary technical trades program.

to enroll in district trades programs. Students in district programs don’t necessarily have a job in a trade yet, but receive technical training that combines theory with hands-on training in their chosen field. Some of the programs are at a post-secondary institute, while others are run in local schools. For both programs, the draws for students are numerous: they can get credit toward graduation, credit toward their post-secondary education, first-year apprenticeship training, they can get a scholarship, or they could get their tuition paid. “It’s really a benefit, there’s so many pluses,” says School District 36 career education coordinator Vicki Munn. Munn has been focusing on trades opportunities for students for nine years. She says while initially the challenge was battling stereotypes about trades and trades workers, a bigger hurdle was overcoming the lack of awareness of where such training could lead. “A student can go into a trade out of interest to begin with,” she says. “Where that leads them a few years after that is really up to them. They could go into business for themselves, they could go into another field such as firefighting or engineering. There’s a broad spectrum of directions they could go.” To create even greater awareness, the district also collaborates with Delta and Langley school districts and Kwantlen each spring to organize Trading Up, a multi-day event that exposes Grade 10-12 students to a range of career and education options, as well as professionals involved in various trades. It’s forecast that over the next 12 years, B.C. is going to have a million job vacancies to fill, about half of those because of growth in the economy and half of them because of retiring baby boomers. In addition, the 2010 Olympics are expected to generate 132,000 person years of employment for skilled trades workers. Once out of highschool, students need not venture far for further training as Kwantlen Polytechnic University has a trades and technology campus in Cloverdale which officially opened in spring 2007. Kwantlen

offers numerous apprenticeship, technical career programs and entry-level trades training (ELTT) – which offer some insight into particular trades before a student commits to an apprenticeship. After completing a 20- to 28 program, ELTT graduates can go on to 40-week an apprenticeship, where they earn an income while completing on-the-job and in-class skills training to become a certified journeyperson. Kwantlen offers an array of programs in a variety of fields, including automotive service, carpentry, drafting, masonry, electrical, farrier, welding, plumbing and metal fabrication.

Students must be employed in a trade area and become registered through their employer in order to be eligible for this type of training. The process of becoming enrolled as a formal apprentice is called the indentureship process. Once indentured, an apprentice can expect to earn 50 per cent of a journeyperson’s wage, with yearly increases over the duration of the apprenticeship. When back in the classroom as students, apprentices are eligible for Employment Insurance (EI) because of their time spent on the job.

From public elementary and secondary schools, to universities, and private facilities – all reflect the city’s fast pace of growth

Educators have worked for years to change attitudes and create awareness about trades and technical training he Surrey School District has been a leader in pursuing trades and apprenticeship opportunities for local teens. Hairdressing programs have been offered since the early 1980s, with welding and electrical programs coming on board in the early ‘90s. Since then, everything from steel fabrication to baking have been added. Last year, Surrey students earned the most trades scholarships of any B.C. school district. With 10 per cent of the student population, local graduates took 16 per cent of the 470 Secondary School Apprenticeship (SAA) awards handed out. As of September of this year, there are 113 Surrey students in the SSA program. SSA allows teens the opportunity to get a head start on their trades career by earning graduation credits from work experience in areas such as welding, cooking, bricklaying and carpentry while still completing high school. The SSA program allows any student aged 15 or over to register as an apprentice and receive 16 credits toward graduation from work experience hours while continuing classroom learning. To receive an SSA scholarship, a student must: • Register for the program with the Industry Training Authority; • Graduate from high school with a C+ average or better on Grade 12 level courses; • Complete a minimum of 480 hours of paid work as an apprentice as part of their graduation program; • Still be apprenticing six months after graduation, either in the workplace or enrolled in a post-secondary technical trades program. There are now close to 20 district-wide career programs, including carpentry and millwright courses offering dual credit toward Kwantlen Polytechnic University programs, and electrical and steel fabrication classes applicable to BCIT training. Between now and next February, there are also another 250 or so Surrey students expected

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a holistic medical system that seeks to heal the root causes of dysfunction or disease. It has been practiced for over 2000 years, making it one of the oldest and most widely used systems of medicine in the world. Recent advances in Western medicine are only now beginning to affirm the wisdom of this ancient healing system that integrates mind, body, nutrition, lifestyle and energy fields.

Men’s reproductive health We treat a range of reproductive disorders including male factor infertility, erectile dysfunction and prostate conditions. In all cases we focus on treating the whole patient, and the root cause of your disorder. As a result you will not only experience an improvement in your specific condition but better over all health and sense of wellbeing. The “side effects” of your treatment can include healthy weight loss, more restful sleep, stress reduction, increased energy and even enhanced libido!

According to TCM, vital energy or Qi (chee) flows through meridians or channels in the body regulating a person’s spiritual, emotional and physical wellbeing. If Qi is flowing freely and smoothly, there is balance and health. If Qi is blocked, pain, dysfunction and disease can result To restore health a Doctor of Chinese Medicine diagnoses the pattern of symptoms, and uses a combination of treatments like acupuncture, herbal formulas, nutritional therapy, exercise, meditation and remedial massage to release blocked energy and return the body to healthful balance.

Acupuncture Acupuncture is the practice of inserting hair thin needles into certain anatomical points in the body to relieve specific symptoms associated with many diseases. The anatomical points (acupuncture points) are thought to have certain electrical properties, which affect chemical neurotransmitters in the body. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, the human body has more than 2,000 acupuncture points connected via pathways, or meridians. These pathways create an energy flow (Qi, pronounced “chee”) through the body that is vital for overall health. Disruption of the energy flow can cause disease. Acupuncture may correct these imbalances when applied at acupuncture points and improve the flow of Qi. In the past few years acupuncture has undergone extensive laboratory research, and has become increasingly known and accepted in the West. The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes the powerful healing effects of acupuncture, and cites

What We Have Seen

I’m here today to speak on behalf of a mighty group of women warriors, the Aborig inal Women’s Action Netwo rk, or AWAN.

awan aboriginal women’s action network

AWAN is a group of Aborigi

nal

women from many nations that share common experie nces as native women, and that share an analysis of prostitution as inherently racist, a tool of coloniz ation, and a form of violence against women.

We have not develo ped this analysis alone . This analysis is the result of 518 years of resistance stories, stories told to us by our grandm others, who have retold the stories of their grandmothers, who have retold the stories of their grandm others. This analysis is not based on academic research conduc ted by academic researchers far removed from their academic research subjects. This analysis is based on our life experiences, on what we have seen with our own eyes and heard with our own ears and felt with our own bodies. It is based on the life experie nces of our mothers, our sisters, and our friends.

We dont want to be raped. We dont want to be raped for pay. We dont want our mothers and sisters and daughters to be raped or to be raped for pay. We dont want to be murdered or beaten or assaulted.

Sometimes it is that simple.
