Surrey

Young women step up Group will pitch idea of starting a women’s advisory committee at Surrey city hall Kristi Alexandra

Now contributor Twitter @kristialexandra

SURREY — Young women across Metro Vancouver are taking a stand for better political representation, in a new initiative coming out of the Justice Education Society. Young Women Civic Leaders, a two-year project that promotes political engagement for females aged 15 to 25, is a program that serves several municipalities in the region – among them, Surrey. In Surrey, an aim of the project – spearheaded by project coordinator Anastasia Gaisenok – is to see a women’s advisory committee enter city hall, with hopes of creating a gender-equality strategy in the city. “We don’t exactly have a recipe for what would be in the gender-equality (strategy) itself,” said Gaisenok, 30, “but the idea is to establish the women’s advisory committee, which would oversee the development of the policy and the committee should be representative of Surrey population.” Kiran Dhesa, who’s on the Young Women Civic Leaders committee, assessed that these women would come from a range of different backgrounds in Surrey, and for good reason. “There are a lot of immigrant and refugee women in Surrey particularly, and their needs are a lot different and don’t necessarily get addressed by all of the councillors, so the women’s advisory committee would be made up of women from different backgrounds, ages, so they can give their input and their voice,” said Dhesa, 22.

Young Women Civic Leaders committee members Alisha Mangat, left, Lisa Hemmingson, second from left, and Kiran Dhesa, right, with Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts. One reason that this would be emphatic for the multicultural community, she said, is that certain issues pertaining to Surrey have different impact on its female population than its male population. “Especially for me, coming from Surrey, there are some issues I think that need gender focus, like crime,” said Dhesa. “There’s a lot of crime in Surrey, and much of it affects women differently than it affects men. I work in Surrey, when I leave, people tell me I need to walk out with a security guard but the guys who work with me leave, no problem. So people don’t understand that that’s not fair. That’s one of the reasons we would need a women’s advisory committee in Surrey.” The Young Women’s Civic Leaders group isn’t just tackling changes at city hall, but also delving into how youth view themselves in politics, whether at the municipal, provincial or federal level. That’s where the YWCL saw a spot to utilize their social media campaign #MsMayor. “Basically, #MsMayor is a social media

campaign where you take your picture in front of our sign and you write what you would do if you were mayor. It kind of gets you thinking about what you would do, and then you post it up online and it gets other people thinking, getting an idea of why it’s important to get involved, so that was the basis for that. We did it for the International Women’s Day event at the Vancouver Public Library, we’ve done it at SFU Surrey, things like that,” said YWCL committee member Alisha Mangat, 23. Gaisenok says Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts has been a supporter of the YWCL at the “Surrey Steps Up” event, where Watts invited youth onstage at the chambers, took pictures with them and asked them what they would do as mayor of Surrey. “I thought it was such a great experience, for a young girl, to talk to the mayor, who is female. It really is a motivator,” said Dhesa of the experience. The YWCL will present its pitch to start a women’s advisory committee to city hall on July 21. kalexandra@thenownewspaper.com

City Centre

Food Cart Fest at city hall plaza this summer, Saturdays starting July 5 CITY CENTRE — Vancouver’s Food Cart Fest is coming to Surrey this summer. The weekly festival of food will be held on Saturday afternoons at city hall plaza, starting July 5 and running for nine weeks, ending Aug. 30. Event planners are Vancity, Arrival Agency and Streetfood Vancouver. In Vancouver, a similar event has taken place since 2012, attracting thousands of people each week with DJs, a market, activities for kids and, of course, food carts. “For the past two years, Food Cart Fest (in Vancouver) has been a great way to bring the community together to celebrate the Lower Mainland’s exploding street food scene,” stated Ernesto Gomez of Arrival Agency, an event planner based in Vancouver. “We’re thrilled to be able to expand the festival into the heart of Surrey, at a landmark setting like the new city hall.” More than 15 food trucks will be parked for the weekly festival in Surrey, including select vendors from the list of 10 recently approved by the City of Surrey, as part of its new Mobile Food Vending program. In May, prospective vendors were invited to apply to be part of the pilot project. Vendors will operate in pairs at five locations around the city: the east and west parking lots at North Surrey Recreation Centre, Bear Creek Park/ Surrey Arts Centre parking lot, Newton Wave Pool parking lot and the new City Hall Plaza. Like its Vancouver counterpart, admission to Surrey’s Food Cart Fest will be free to Vancity members or with a donation of a non-perishable food item to Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. Otherwise, admission will be $2.

SURREY — While the time has passed to see the pride flag flown at city hall during the Olympic Games, whether or not it will reach the top of the flagpole on the day that Pride Week commences in Surrey has yet to be decided. That’s what has local gay rights activist Martin Rooney looking into legislation surrounding the issue, along with members of the Surrey Pride Society. Back in February, when Rooney sent what he thought was a formal request to get the flag flown at city hall; he heard nothing back from the mayor or any members of council. “The background is that the pride flag has never been flown in any official capacity in Surrey in 15 years of celebrating pride,” Rooney told the Now over the phone, noting that the pride flag has regularly been flown in neighbouring municipalities. “In February, when the Olympics were going on, 30 to 40 cities across Canada flew the pride flag in support of our GLBT athletes that were participating in the Sochi Olympics, considering that Putin had put all

this negative, anti-gay propaganda in play and so we approached the city with an email to the mayor and the council requesting that the pride flag be flown in support of the GLBT athletes as we were originally an Olympic city.” It wasn’t until Rooney decided to go public on social media that Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts responded to his request, he said. “Until I tweeted it out and hash-tagged (Watts) in the tweet, there was no response from city council. (Watts) responded that there was never a refusal to fly the pride flag, (but) there was never a formal request to do so,” he said. Rooney took issue with the statement, saying that personal emails to the mayor and to council members should have at least triggered a response indicating how to go about the process, if not just a simple “Yes” or “No.” Later, he received an email response quoting “federal flag protocol” as the reason that the pride flag could not be hoisted. City councillors share scattered opinions on the matter, he said, but Rooney is hoping this won’t be the case in July, when Pride Week takes off in Surrey. “What would be helpful

for us to make our decision is to look at what other municipalities have done in the Lower Mainland,” said Coun. Barinder Rasode. “Surrey is a very inclusive community, and so is city hall,” City Manager Vincent Lalonde said on behalf of Mayor Watts. “Our practice has been, in the past, to only fly the Canadian, provincial and city flag on our official flagpoles but that doesn’t mean we don’t promote diversity — we have all kinds of opportunities to promote diversity.” He also noted that the city is developing a formal policy on the matter since it arose in February. While Rooney is skeptical that the Surrey Pride Society will be successful in seeing the pride flag wave at city hall for the entire Pride Week, he is hoping, at least, to see it go up for the opening day on Sunday, July 6. “It’s 2014, and basically the hope of flying the flag is to tell everybody in Surrey that everyone is welcome,” he said. “As the founder of the first Pride Day in 1999, I’ve formed an alliance of community leaders and organizations to finally get this dialogue in public, with the hope that the city would do the right thing.”

Make the Right Turn in Bellingham Bellingham Festival of Music

By Benjamin Yong With huge events like Squamish Live and the five-day extravaganza in Pemberton, B.C. is no stranger to music festivals. But heading north isn’t the only option to get your melodic fix, as Bellingham is getting ready to host their 21st annual Festival of Music from July 5 to 20. “It’s a three-week summer festival of classical music, in which the orchestra is made up of selected musicians from North America,” says board chair Robert Lynch. “We do five orchestra concerts, chamber music (small ensemble of instruments) recitals and a number of free concerts.” A big draw for the show is the well-known guest artists from within classical circles that it attracts. Famous names performing this year include American violinist Stefan Jackiw, Spanish guitarist Pablo Villegas and Cuban-American soprano Lisette Oropesa, whose work has even appeared on the NBC comedy 30 Rock. Everything takes place at the Western Washington University Performing Arts Centre, nestled right in-between the historic town of Fairhaven and downtown Bellingham that is only about an hour’s drive from Richmond. Because of its relatively close proximity, Lynch says the festival draws a fair share of Canadians as well as people from all over the Pacific Northwest.

downtown art Walk July 11th ~ All over downtown Bellingham

“It’s very well attended. The five big concerts hold about 600 people or so each and they usually sell out. The chamber music is a smaller venue but that’s another several hundred. I’d say we get about 4,000 annually.” Another city favourite in the summer is the Downtown Sounds summer free concert series entering its 10th year. From July 9 to Aug. 6 on the 1300 block of Bay Street, popular local bands will play a variety of music every Wednesday night with different groups every week. A beverage garden will be provided by Boundary Bay Brewery & Bistro and Spark Museum of Electrical Innovation. Also, happening at the same time is the Fairhaven Steampunk Festival Mr. Flip’s Carnival of Wonders & Curiosities on July 19, a unique exhibition celebrating Steampunk science-fiction literary culture and featuring live entertainment, food and vendors.

There are plenty more things to do, eat and see in both Fairhaven and “old” Bellingham, especially in the summertime — from cycling along the boardwalk to shopping in family-owned boutique stores to grabbing a bite and drink at some of the finest brew-pubs anywhere. Tickets for the Bellingham Festival of Music can be purchased via the website at www.bellinghamfestival.org/tickets, or by calling 360-605-6146.

SURREY — Keep your legs straight when kicking. If your knees are bent, you won’t go very far. This was the advice given to around 250 swimming students throughout Surrey on Friday (June 20) as the city participated in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest swimming lesson. The lesson happened during Water Safety Week, an annual global campaign to educate people on water safety. The event is held at pools and recreation centres across the world, but Surrey was one of the few cities in B.C. that participated. Jeffrey Holland, the City of Surrey’s Aquatics Manager, said that staff at the Newton Wave Pool brought the idea forward, and that they thought it was vitally important. Holland said that the reason for the lesson is “to make people aware of the importance of water safety” and being able to have basic swimming skills.

It’s really important for us to have those fundamental skills to swim up to 50 metres, to fall in the water and orient yourself. “There’s a lot of factors that key in on why people drown, and it’s really important for us to have those fundamental skills to swim up to 50 metres, to fall in the water and orient yourself. “Surrey residents, like everybody else in B.C., get out into the water, and they don’t experience that every day close at home. So getting out in lakes, rivers and oceans during the summertime, certainly people are exposed to a different kind of swimming environment and it leads to a little more danger,” Holland said. According to the Red Cross, approximately 525 Canadians die in “unintentional waterrelated fatalities” every year.

Ride2Survive raises $535K NORTH DELTA — This year’s Ride2Survive raised a cool $535,000 in its efforts to beat cancer, with more donations expected to roll in over the coming weeks. The 10th annual charity Saturday ride saw close to 140 cyclists ride 400 kilometres in a single day, from Kelowna to North Delta. Late Saturday, a large group of people gathered to cheer the cyclists as they rolled into a parking lot on the Delta side of Scott Road upon finishing their ride, which began at around 3:30 a.m. in West Kelowna. For video, visit Thenownewspaper.com.

On Sunday, cyclists and crew gathered at the North Delta home of Kerry Kunzli, president of Ride2Survive, to clean trailers, bikes and other things used during the ride. Kunzli and fellow Deltan Shawn Elliott have done the ride for 10 years in a row. “Every year is different, and I felt better this year than last year,” Kunzli said with a smile. Planning for the 2015 Ride2Survive has already begun. For details, visit Ride2Survive.ca. Tom Zillich

Our view

Foreign workers: Rules must be enforced for the new Tory plan to work After more than a year of scandal and outrage over abuses of the temporary foreign workers’ program, the Tories have changed the rules to better protect Canadians and the foreign workers themselves. Among the changes: Employers can no longer hire low-wage temporary foreign workers in regions where unemployment is above six per cent, a 10-per-cent cap on the number of TFW s on any one work site, more government inspections of employers and fines of up to $100,000 for bosses caught abusing the program. It may have been a calculated preelection-year move to appeal to middleof-the-road voters, but we know as well that the changes haven’t been popular with the Conservatives’ pro-business base. The Canadian Federation of Independent Business president put out a message on social media Friday calling the changes the “single worst decision this (government) has made and a major knock to their small biz credentials.” The argument has been that temporary foreign workers are the only people willing to take jobs in restaurants and hotels, regardless of what wages they offer. We don’t buy that. We also don’t begrudge any person in the developing world who wants to come here, work hard and support those with even less. But there is a problem when we have Canadians who are being bumped out of the line. We hope the government will follow through with enforcement of the new rules, without which the changes will be meaningless. If it does, kudos to the Tories. They will have listened and responded on an issue that’s important to many Canadians. Glacier Media

Your view

Surrey doesn’t deserve its bad rap

The Editor, I am a longtime resident of Surrey and in particular, Cloverdale. I am sick and tired of the “bad rap” that Surrey gets in the news. Surrey is B.C.’s second largest city and is growing rapidly. In no time at all, Surrey will have a population larger than Vancouver. Our mayor has put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into making Surrey a better place to live. It is time for the public to open its eyes and educate itself. Numerous communities in B.C. have a worse crime rate than Surrey, including Prince George and the “crown jewels” of Victoria and Kelowna. I was born and raised in a small town in northern B.C. with a current population of less than 1,000 people, and know firsthand that small towns are not immune from “Surrey crime.” My own mom, who was pregnant at the time, was brutally murdered at the age of 21. I was raped at knifepoint. Drug dealers trade and deal in plain view and on the school yard in communities everywhere. The bottom line is, if people think that crime exists only in Surrey, then people need to really open their eyes and look in their

own backyards. They will be horribly surprised to find out the ugly truth that crime exists everywhere. Laurie Bonacci, Surrey

Northern Gateway

Harper may have created a pipe dream for Enbridge InTheHouse Keith Baldrey

FOLLOW KEITH ON TWITTER WITH LAYAR

P

rime Minister Stephen Harper may not realize it, but his government’s decision to conditionally approve the Northern Gateway pipeline may be a huge gift to the very folks who are leading the charge against the pipeline ever being built. That would be the Canadian environmental movement, which has made Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway pipeline Enemy Number One. By giving the project semi-official “status,” the Harper government has ensured the environmental movement now has a sure-fire and lucrative fundraising weapon, and an organizing one as well. To be sure, the enviros have been dining out on Northern Gateway for some time now, but they can now ramp up their anti-pipeline campaign big-time and take it to the international stage. But the irony here (aside from the fact that Harper is actually aiding the environmentalists) is that there is a good chance the Northern Gateway won’t even be built. For all the outrage whipped up by pipeline foes as part of a fundraising scheme,

it is more likely not a single pipe is ever laid along the proposed route. And given the way the Harper government made the pipeline announcement – a terse four-paragraph news release at 5 p.m. Ottawa time, without a single cabinet minister or B.C. Conservative MP being around to even talk about it – one may think it shares the doubts about this project ever coming to fruition. Enbridge is facing many obstacles, some of them significant and others less so. But put them all together, and they create what may be a mountain that is impossible to scale. For starters, there are the 209 conditions the federal Joint Review Panel attached to its own approval of the project. More than half of them must be met before construction can even begin, and some seem onerous. For example, the company must complete a detailed survey of all kinds of wild species and aquatic marine life, as well as such things as “culturally modified trees” that have grown since 1846 (when B.C. became Crown land). But perhaps most importantly, Enbridge has to prove it has consulted adequately with First Nations affected by the project, and on this point the company is especially vulnerable. While it says it has secured the support of more than 20 First Nations bands, the fact remains that many more vehemently oppose the project. The B.C. courts and the Supreme Court of Canada have demonstrated that a lack of aboriginal treaties in this province has meant First Nations’ interests must be accommodated and respected, and that bodes ill for the Northern Gateway project. And then there is the B.C. government,

Given the way the Harper government made the pipeline announcement, one may think it shares the doubts about this project ever coming to fruition.

PM Stephen Harper

which is no small problem for Enbridge. Premier Christy Clark has set five distinct conditions that have to be met before her government will support the project. Only one of them – getting through an environmental assessment process – has been achieved, and it’s unlikely any of the others will come close to being met. She and her Environment Minister Mary Polak have said if the conditions are not met, then B.C. will not grant any of the 60 provincial permits that Enbridge must secure for various activities, including construction of a pipeline. The federal government distributed a backgrounder when it announced its approval of the pipeline. It ever so helpfully lists the dozen or so provincial pieces of legislation that come into play with this project. I can picture provincial bureaucrats right now eagerly awaiting the chance to nix a permit for Enbridge because, say, an archeological site may be disturbed by a construction crew. No, for all kinds of reasons – 209 conditions, First Nations opposition, the B.C. government’s opposition – it’s more than likely the Northern Gateway pipeline

will never be built. There’s no sense trying to convince the environmental movement of that though. It’s going to be too busy using what could end up being a phantom project to raise a lot of money.

VIRK ON THIN ICE

When Premier Christy Clark gets around to the first shuffle of her post-election cabinet, I suspect the person leading the short list for being dumped will be Advanced Education Minister Amrik Virk. After denying any wrongdoing, an investigation found he broke the rules for disclosing public sector compensation while he was on the board of Kwantlen Polytechnic University (before he was elected). I would think there are now at least a few B.C. Liberal backbenchers who may think themselves more worthy of a cabinet post than Virk, and I have to wonder whether the premier might come to that conclusion as well.

City of Surrey event

New name for Surrey’s celebration site Venue for the city’s annual Canada Day event is now known as Bill Reid Millennium Amphitheatre SURREY — Metro Vancouver-based musicians Matthew Good, Daniel Wesley and Kyprios will headline Surrey’s Canada Day event this year. The party on Tuesday, July 1 will be held at the same annual site on 64th Avenue in Cloverdale – the newly renamed Bill Reid Millennium Amphitheatre in Cloverdale. Also featured will be the band Halfway to Hollywood, country artist Ray Gibson, Heart tribute band Barracuda, a “Country Divas” show and DJ Flipout, whose job is to “keep the good vibes going between bands.” Admission is free at the event, to include more than 500,000 square feet of entertainment and family-oriented fun. Highlights include an expanded Kids Play area, more than 100 exhibitors and Shooting Star Amusements, with top midway games and rides. Gates open at 10 a.m., with the eventclosing fireworks show slated for 10:15 p.m., following Good’s performance. Major event sponsors include Coast

For more event details, visit Surrey. ca/canadaday. In mid-May, as workers were buzzing around Cloverdale Fairgrounds preparing for rodeo weekend, Bill Reid, a longtime community supporter, was being honoured

steps away. The City of Surrey unveiled two commemorative initiatives to honour the late Reid’s public and philanthropic service. Cloverdale Millennium Amphitheatre has been renamed Bill Reid Millennium Amphitheatre, and 62nd Avenue from 176th Street to the Stetson Bowl is now known as Bill Reid Way. A modest crowd of Reid’s family and friends, as well as politicians and colleagues

gathered as signs for the two honourary projects were unveiled. Reid was 78 when he lost his battle with cancer on May 28, 2013. Reid’s community service earned him the monikers “Mr. Surrey” and “Mr. Cloverdale,” not to mention being chosen Surrey Good Citizen of the Year in 2013. Reid served as a Surrey politician at a variety of levels, and though he was forced to resign from his post as Socred tourism minister in 1989 after he awarded more than $250,000 in GO B.C. lottery grants to a project run by a friend, he proved himself to be a quintessential Surrey booster in the years that followed. He served with a plethora of Surrey organizations, including Cloverdale Business Improvement Association, Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce, Surrey Heritage Society, Cloverdale Rodeo and Exhibition Association and Fraser Valley Heritage Rail Society. The city will also be endorsing a community initiative to commission a public art installation by artist Paul Slipper. The planned piece, to be located in Cloverdale along 176A Street, will be a sculpture of Reid and will augment the three existing sculptures in the area that depict a Cloverdale pioneer farmer, a rodeo cowgirl and a B.C. Electric railway conductor. Now files

Matthew Good headlines day of music in Cloverdale Kristi Alexandra

Matthew Good, who first hit it big in the mid-1990s with hits such as “Hello Time Bomb” and “Apparitions,” will perform at Surrey’s Canada Day event on Tuesday, July 1.

Now contributor Twitter @kristialexandra

CLOVERDALE — Local fans of Burnabybased musician Matthew Good might recall the singer’s reputation for being a real jerk in the late 1990s, when a plethora of T-shirts and stickers yielded the words “I Hear Matt Good’s a Real A--hole” at Matthew Good Band shows. While the 42-year-old rocker has said to many media outlets that it was a joke that went awry, some fans still might be hesitant to meet their hero. The four-time Juno Award winner – who, for personal reasons, has not accepted any of his awards – headlines Surrey’s Canada Day party, bringing a new catalogue of musical material from his latest solo release, Arrows of Desire. Hailing from the White Rock/Langley area, reggae-rocker Daniel Wesley will also take the stage at Surrey’s Canada Day celebrations. The 32-year-old singersongwriter debuted his beach-y rock sound in 2006 with his album Outlaw, but started to make headlines with his best-known song “Ooo Ohh” from 2007’s Sing and Dance.

Eight years and six albums later, Wesley performs pretty close to his hometown, playing material from his 2013 release, Ocean Wide. Putting a little variety into the mix is hiphop artist, Kyprios. The North Vancouver rapper, first known for his contributions in Canadian hip-hop group Sweatshop Union, won the 2010 Peak Performance Project

with 2009 album 12:12 and was nominated for both a Juno Award and a Genie Award in 2005. Kyprios left Sweatshop Union and pursued his solo efforts full-time in 2011, hitting radio waves with “City Woman” and “How the West Was Won”. His last album, The Lap Dog, was released in 2012. Kyprios hits the Canada Day mainstage at 6:30 p.m., just before Wesley and Good.

Other notable acts on the mainstage include The Beat 94.5’s resident jockey, DJ Flip-Out, who will spin and scratch between sets, Heart tribute band Barracuda and country starlet Ray Kyprios Gibson. Kicking off the nationalistic festivities is Matt Henry, a Wisconsin native known for juggling, followed by Norma McKnight, the “vivacious ventriloquist.” Another act for Surrey’s young ones is children’s entertainer Will Stroet, this generation’s answer to Fred Penner. Stroet has been releasing music for children since 2005, with eight albums under his belt. For more on Surrey’s Canada Day lineup, check Surrey.ca/canadaday.

Surrey’s Canada Day celebration is set to happen for another year on Tuesday, July 1, from 10 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. at Bill Reid Millennium Amphitheatre, at the corner of 176th Street and 64th Avenue. Admission is free at the event. To get there, consider walking or riding your bike (a bike lock up area will be located at the end of 62A Avenue entrance, beside the RCMP Community Tent). Additional buses will be in operation to provide service to King George Skytrain station after the fireworks finale. The stop for these buses will be located at 64th Avenue and 176th Street. Skytrain service will be extended on Canada Day, with the last train leaving King George station at 12:38 a.m. Free public parking will be available at Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino (access off 60th Avenue) and Cloverdale Agriplex (via 62nd Avenue and 176th Street). Here are some of the events and attractions happening at Surrey’s Canada Day event, with details from the website Surrey.ca/canadaday:

WIN A CAR

One lucky person will win a brand new Honda Civic at Canada Day, courtesy of Surrey Honda. Fill in a ballot at Surrey Honda (located at 15291 Fraser Hwy.) from June 14 until Canada Day, or visit the Surrey Honda tent throughout the day on July 1 and fill in a ballot on site. Limit of one ballot per family. One lucky winner will be drawn on Canada Day at the Bill Reid Millennium Amphitheatre.

GO ON RIDES

Shooting Star Amusement rides will be back with all the great rides like the Ferris Wheel, the Zipper, the Spider, the Sizzler, Zero Gravity and much more. Plus, lots of rides for the little ones, including all the best Bouncy Castles that only a kid could love. Note that it takes between one to seven tickets to ride each ride at Canada Day. Children’s rides require between one and four tickets; the bigger rides take five tickets, and the Zipper requires six tickets. Save time and money when you buy tickets in books.

All tickets are non-refundable, however they never expire and may be used at any of the city’s future events. Amusement rides open at 10 a.m. and close at 10:15 p.m. Be sure to use your tickets up before the fireworks begin.

HAVE FUN AT KIDS WORLD

Hosted by the Now newspaper, the Kids World will feature a giant sandbox, games, toddler town, Storyville and fun Canada Day-themed crafts for the kids.

FOOD CONCESSIONS

What is a festival without great food? Surrey’s Canada Day event will boast hot dogs, corn on the cob, fresh lemonade, cotton candy, wood-oven pizza, donairs, BBQ ribs and smoked meat, popcorn, Chinese food, poutine, gourmet burgers, Caribbean food, chicken wings, hand-made ice cream and those awesome mini donuts. ATM machines will be on site.

STORYVILLE

Storyville is Surrey Libraries’ storytelling

A Sports Zone is part of Surrey’s Canada Day celebrations. Ever tried sitting volleyball? It’s designed for athletes with a disability, but it can also be played by able bodied players. The court is smaller and the net lower, resulting in a much faster game. See the National Women’s Sitting Volleyball team demonstrate sitting volleyball and then try it yourself. How about Floor Ball? It’s like floor hockey, but with less contact. And then there’s Speed Badminton! Just like badminton but without a net and with smaller racquets. Try them all in the Sports Zone, which is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

FIREWORKS FINALE

Starting at around 10:15 p.m., the spectacular Surrey Canada Day fireworks display will light up the sky again this year and will close out a day filled with Canadian pride. For the best view of the fireworks, be on the field of the amphitheatre, looking above the Chevron Mainstage.

CANADA DAY

Canada Day trivia

Pop quiz: How well do you know Canada? Canada’s first prime minister was named John. How many other prime ministers have borne that first name? Answer: In addition to John A. Macdonald, four men named John have held the post of prime minister — John J.C. Abbott, John Sparrow Thompson, John George Diefenbaker and John Napier Turner. How heavy is a regulation curling rock? Answer: According to the World Curling Federation, a curling rock must weigh between 17 and 20 kilograms (38 and 44 pounds). It must also be circular, with a circumference of no more than 910 millimetres (36 inches) and a height of at least 110 millimetres (4.5 inches). Which province held the two largest prisoner-of-war camps in the country during the Second World War? Answer: Canada’s two largest prisoner-ofwar camps during the Second World were located in Alberta – one in Medicine Hat and the other in Lethbridge. There were 26 such camps in the country during that war. Camps were also located in Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick.

How often does Canada conduct its national census? Answer: The 1971 version of the Statistics Act requires a national census be done every five years. Canada’s first Census Act (1870) stipulated a 10-year interval, but that was eventually found to be inadequate. In addition to conducting a census every five years, Statistics Canada carries out more than 300 other active surveys on various aspects of Canadian life. Some time in the last half of the 18th century, more than 2,000 people lost their lives in a natural disaster in British Columbia. What was the nature of the catastrophe? Answer: A volcano called the Tseax Cone erupted, spewing out lava that dammed the Tseax River and formed Lava Lake. Folklore tells of the devastation, which scientists have been able to date to between 1750 and 1775. The Tseax Cone, also called the Tseax River Cone or the Aiyansh, is about 60 kilometres north of Terrace, B.C. Who was the first U. S. president to make an official visit to Canada? Answer: In 1923, Warren Harding became

the first sitting American president to visit Canada. While Chester Arthur paid personal visits to Canada – some even say he was born here – he never made a state visit. Nor did Woodrow Wilson, although the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington, D.C., is home to the Canada Institute, which explores relations between the two countries. Dwight Eisenhower, in 1953, was the first U.S. president to address Parliament. Wayne Gretzky was named an officer of the Order of Canada in 1984, while he was playing for the Oilers. In what year did he accept the honour? Answer: Since the investiture ceremonies are always held during the hockey season, it was 1998 by the time The Great One was actually invested into the Order. A silver dollar struck in 1949 to mark Newfoundland’s entry into Canada bears the image of a ship. Whose ship was it? Answer: The coin depicts the Matthew, the ship on which John Cabot made his famous discovery of the island in 1497. Canada’s chartered banks were allowed to issue their own currencies until what year?

Answer: The Bank Act of 1935 set 1944 as the last year that individual banks would be allowed to issue currency. Since then, only the Bank of Canada has issued our money. In 1950, all the outstanding notes that had been issued by chartered banks before 1945 became the liability of the Bank of Canada — meaning that old money still has value. What legendary entertainer from France was named an honorary officer of the Order of Canada in 2008? Answer: Actor, singer, composer Charles Aznavour received the honour from Governor General Michaelle Jean. The 84year-old Aznavour has appeared in more than 60 movies and sold more than 100 million records. Oct. 23 of last year was the 50th anniversary of the Springhill Mining Disaster. Which member of the Royal Family was in Canada at the time and visited the site? Answer: Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, who had been at meetings in Ottawa, visited the site on Oct. 31, 1958, while rescue efforts were still in progress. Source: Edmonton Journal

Recent violence not specific to Surrey: Watts Mayor says despite last week’s ‘very tragic’ deadly events, city’s homicide rate significantly lower than last year’s Tom Zytaruk

Now staff Twitter @tomzytaruk

Surrey RCMP respond to a homicide at the 2400-block of 156 Street in South Surrey on Friday. It was the city’s third homicide in three days. (Photo: KYLE BENNING) of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team. Anderson is expected to appear in Surrey provincial court today (Tuesday), charged with second-degree murder. Meantime, Surrey’s seventh homicide of 2014, and the third last week alone, was in the 2400-block of 156th Street in South Surrey, where the body of Timothy Szabolcsi, 52, was found inside a rancher on Friday morning. Police haven’t yet revealed how he died. “We have no indication that this was anything random or Clay Russell there is a risk to the public,” Emam said at the scene. “In terms of the motive, we don’t know that.” While Emam was being scrummed by reporters on the street Friday, his fellow police officers told reporters and onlookers to get back, for their own “safety,” and proceeded to move their yellow tape barrier

further away from the crime scene. People gathered on the sidewalk, for a look. “You turn the TV on in the morning and there’s something going on all the time,” one bystander remarked. Clay Russell, out from Edmonton to visit his mom, said police had been checking the area with dogs. “They’re worried about us getting shot by bullets so we’re sort of away,” Russell said. He noted that a string of old houses along the street had been bought about two years ago but haven’t been taken down. “The land’s been bought. Usually when this happens you should destroy things,” he said, noting people have been wandering into the abandoned houses. It was the latest case in a week of Surrey mayhem. Surrey’s sixth homicide was early Thursday morning. Mandeepak “Deepak” Chahal’s body was found lying on the road

SURREY — Let’s hope this week is better. Last week, Surrey experienced a terrible week of violent death, with three homicides in five days. While “very tragic for sure,” Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts said, hers is not the only city seeing recent violence. Vancouver, like Surrey, has also had seven homicides so far this year, and a man was injured in gunfire at Brentwood mall in Burnaby on Saturday. Violence, she noted, is happening “throughout the Lower Mainland” and she says authorities need to coordinate their efforts to tackle it on a regional scale. Last November, Watts launched a task force aimed at curbing violent crime in Surrey after the city hit a record high 25 homicides in 2013 – almost half of all cases in the Lower Mainland. She noted that so far this year, Surrey’s homicide rate is significantly lower than during the same period last year, which saw 13 homicides. Surrey RCMP Sgt. Dale Carr echoed that. Last year’s number of homicides to date was “more than double” this year’s, he noted. Police are doing what they can to fight crime, he said, but if someone is absolutely determined to kill someone, he said, it will happen. “Sometimes it happens in Surrey.” Of the three killings in Surrey last week, investigators have made an arrest in one of them. Dustin Barry Anderson, 42, was arrested in Nanaimo on Saturday for the June 16 murder of Shaunce Poirier, 33, who was killed in the 13200-block of 108th Avenue in Whalley. Poirier is Surrey’s fifth homicide victim of the year. He was found in front of an apartment building. “We are continuing our investigation into this murder and at this point our investigators have determined that this was not a random act,” said Sgt. Bari Emam,

at 65B Ave and 131st Street, a short stroll from St. Bernadette elementary school. Police responding to a call about a brawl, at about 2 a.m., found the 22-year-old victim, who later died in hospital. “Our investigators can confirm that this was not a gang or drug-related incident,” Emam said. “We are still in the process of confirming a motive for this incident and the investigation continues.” Shortly after this fight, in an unrelated case, a heavily armed Emergency Response Team surrounded a house in Clayton Heights after a man who allegedly threatened his girlfriend barricaded himself inside a basement suite, near 66th Avenue and 192nd Street. It started in Langley, at about 3 a.m., with a call to the police that the 25-yearold Surrey man had sent a threatening text message to his ex. A police negotiator talked the man out at about 8 a.m., and he surrendered without incident. He’s in custody but charges have not yet been laid. Also, police are looking for suspects after a man was shot in the hand near 192A Street and 72A Avenue, again in Clayton, late Wednesday afternoon. The 34-year-old victim reportedly sought help at a pizza restaurant, leaving a considerable trail of blood behind him. He was bandaged up to keep him from bleeding out. Paquet said two other cars had chased the victim’s vehicle. “The victim was stopped in traffic when he fled from his vehicle and was shot at by suspects travelling in another vehicle,” he said. “We believe this to be a targeted incident,” Paquet said. “It relates to criminal activity, for sure.” Meantime, police are still searching for Barry McQuarrie in connection with Surrey’s third homicide of this year. Quesnelle, 32, was shot dead inside a townhouse at Rodeo Park Place in Cloverdale on May 12.

into a members food bank where any food donations will be handed out to those most in need within the union. “We put out a call for donations to our members and started getting food,” said Wadge. “So hopefully we’ll get it going by the end of this week and get the food to the members who really need it.” This isn’t the first time that the STA has provided such a service for its members. “We did the same thing when we went out for two weeks in 2005.

SURREY — With the teachers’ full-scale strike now underway and the BCTF’s strike fund having already dried up, the Surrey Teachers Association is taking it upon themselves to start a food bank to support striking members. According to STA president Jennifer Wadge, the bank is being created after $10,000 in grocery store gift cards were quickly snapped up by members, who have been without strike pay for two weeks now. “We planned to keep purchasing gift cards but decided to supplement the obvious need by also set up a food bank in our office,” said Wadge. “We know we have TTOCs (teachers on call) who are just scraping by. A lot of them are actually making below the poverty line, as well as new teachers and single parents who were contacting us letting us know they needed some support.” With that in mind, Wadge said her the STA office would be transforming

to schools there are just as many CUPE employees picketing with teachers and the food bank will be open to them too because we recognize they are taking a financial hit as well. The solidarity is really appreciated.” The food bank is now up and running and Wadge noted that while they should be good until the end of June, if the strike continues into the summer months and September, resources could also be stretched at the STA. “We know a lot of the members most affected by the financial hardships are most often the ones that take work in the summer, as summer school teachers,” she said.

MEDIATOR STILL NEEDED

In the latest turn of events in the ongoing teacher strike, veteran mediator Vince Ready has declined a request to be involved in the labour dispute, citing a busy schedule. Ready was approached after the BCTF and the province expressed desires last week to seek mediation for the dispute.

ON BEAUTIFUL FACE LAKE

District eliminates $8M deficit

SURREY — An $8 million hole in the school district’s budget has been plugged by the Surrey Board of Education, allowing them to pass the next year’s education budget. While half of that deficit was made up by about $4 million that was leftover in unspent funds from the previous year, trustees were faced with finding an additional $4 million in the existing $588 million budget. According to budget committee chair and trustee Terry Allen, that figure was found primarily by cutting back on support staff hours and department supply budgets. “I would say that it’s probably somewhere in the region of 20 support staff across the district,” he said. “Now that doesn’t mean they’re actually bodies but the hours add up to 20 individuals.” Support staff includes custodians, educational assistants and maintenance workers. As for supply funds within the district, Allen said those were trimmed “to the bare bones. “We allocate supply budgets to

each department but I would say that they’ve been drastically slashed,” he said. “An almost $8-million deficit is hard to find, but you’re dealing with a budget of more than half-a-billion dollars so if you put it in perspective, it’s bad but it could have been a hell of a lot worse.” Prior to the passing of the budget, trustees were faced with having to find some way of making up the deficit and some parents were concerned that those cuts would be coming from school programs. In May, board vice-chair Laurie Larsen said some “tough decisions” were going to have to be made and that programs could be impacted. However, Allen said that thankfully didn’t end up being the case. “Trustees have a huge commitment to the programs in this district and the trustees made it quite clear to me as budget chair that it couldn’t be programs unless there could be no other choice,” he said. Other items in the budget include

increasing trustee’s honorariums by $600 for the year, which comes a year after they lowered them by $200. Trustee Charlene Dobie said she was the lone voice in voting against the motion, saying that it was inappropriate to increase honorariums during such tough financial times. “This money, no matter how insignificant in the big picture, should be used for education – not to bolster our pay,” she said. “There are many classrooms in this district that could use this money to augment the learning. This money should be spent on the children in our district.” Trustees receive $30,200 a year. Board chair Shawn Wilson said the figure is looked at every year and compared to the Consumer Price Index as per board policy, and adjusted as such each June. “Last year, the CPI went down and there was a reduction in it. It’s one of those things that are sometimes taken out of context but if CPI goes down then we lower it.” Finally, Wilson said with the ongoing teachers strike, there was a chance that the board may have to revisit the next school year’s budget, as some expected revenues may not end up coming in. “International education could be a problem,” he said. Revenue from international students for the 2014/2015 school year is budgeted at $9.1 million.

Support workers will be paid for lost strike wages Tom Zytaruk

Now Staff Twitter@tomzytaruk

SURREY/DELTA — Education support workers caught up in the teachers’ strike will be reimbursed for lost wages, their union says. That’s part of the agreement the Canadians Union of Public Employees has reached with the government, Rob Hewitt said Tuesday. Hewitt is CUPE’s K-12 sector coordinator. The employer, he said, has agreed to “make

them whole for lost wages.” Hewitt said that because the government is “fully funding” all of the increases covered by the agreement, this “should relieve some pressure on bargaining for school districts.” The union represents more than 27,000 education support workers in 59 locals and 53 school districts throughout the province who have been picketing alongside the teachers, although it’s not their fight. This includes education assistants, secretaries, caretakers, First Nations support workers, IT workers, StrongStart

Jessica Ashley Hanley, now 25, killed Tashina Rae Sutherland, 23, inside a small rancher at 10593 138th St. in Whalley, on April 26, 2012. The women were friends since childhood, and shared the same birthday. Hanley pleaded guilty to the lesser offence of manslaughter on Monday, at the beginning of the fourth week of her second-degree murder trial in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster. Minus time served, Hanley will spend another seven years and nine months in prison.

Chiefs, Tritons win three of four on weekend The Whalley Chiefs took advantage of some beautiful June weekend weather to post three wins in four games in B.C. Premier Baseball League action. The Chiefs swept a pair of games from the visiting North Delta Blue Jays Saturday, winning 4-1 and 1-0. On Sunday the Chiefs were at UBC where they split a twin bill with the Vancouver Cannons, dropping the first game 5-1 before bouncing back to take the second match 4-3. In Whalley Saturday, the Chiefs picked up a pair of wins at the expense of the rival Blue Jays. In the opener, Max Williams went the distance on the hill, allowing three hits and just one run while striking out five to earn the win. Dylan MacAhonic was tagged with the loss for North Delta. Williams received plenty of support from his teammates as the Chiefs recorded 10 hits and plated four runs to cement the win. Lichel Hirakawa-Kao and Trevor Henits each connects for a pair of hits for the Chiefs while Spencer Rankin collected two RBIs. Game 2 turned into a pitchers’ duel and Whalley’s Thomas Espig and the North Delta duo of Jonathan Cote and Bryant Pawliw each allowed just one hit in the game. Espig emerged on top as the junior lefty tossed a one-hitter with just one walk and eight strikeouts to blank the Jays 1-0. Hirakawa-Kao scored the game’s only run in the fifth inning, reaching base with a walk and then advancing through the base paths before heading home with what turned out to be the winning run. The Chiefs were back in action Sunday in Vancouver where they split a doubleheader with the Vancouver Cannons. Vancouver took the opener 5-1 on the strength of a complete game effort from starting pitcher Isaac Greer. Whalley rallied to take the second game, scoring two runs in the top of the seventh inning to squeak out a 4-3 win. Chris DiFabio pitched the first six innings for Whalley to earn the win before giving way to Hirakawa-Kao, who picked up the save in relief. Lucas Soper led the Chiefs at the plate

With both the umpire and North Delta Blue Jays’ pitcher Jonathan Cote (left) looking on, Whalley Chiefs baserunner Lichel HirakawaKao (1) arrives safely at third base in BCPBL action Saturday. Hirakawa-Kao scored the game’s only run shortly afterward as the Chiefs swept a doubleheader from their North Delta rivals. View more photos with Layar. (Photo: GORD GOBLE) with three hits and one RBI. The Blue Jays were also in action Sunday as they split a twin bill in Coquitlam against the host Reds. North Delta got off to a shaky start as they were bombed 8-2 in the opener. The Blue Jays then salvaged their weekend with a bounce-back 6-2 win in Game 2. Nathan Unrau was solid on the mound for the Jays, allowing three hits while fanning seven in seven innings of work. At the plate, Kyle Lee swatted three hits and drove in two runs to lead the Blue Jay attack. Elsewhere, the White Rock Tritons went overseas where they collected three wins in four tries against Vancouver Island

opponents. White Rock kicked the trip off with a doubleheader sweep of the Nanaimo Pirates Saturday followed by a split with the Parksville Royals Sunday. In Nanaimo, the Tritons blanked the Pirates 6-0 in their opener as Zach Campagne went the distance on the mound and allowed just three hits in the shutout win. Thomas Vincent connected with two hits and drove in three runs to power the Tritons attack. The second game was much closer as the Tritons held off a three-run Pirates rally in the bottom of the seventh to escape with a 5-4 win. Barry Caine earned the win in five innings

of work on the mound for White Rock. On Sunday the Tritons were up the street in Parksville where they came away with a split of games. In the opener, the host Royals scored twice in the first inning and added three more runs in the third and sixth innings to cruise to an 8-3 win. White Rock answered in Game 2 by scoring early and often, building a 5-0 lead in the top of the third inning and then rolling to a comfortable 9-6 win. Vincent, Caine and Juan Paez each collected two hits in the win. Jordan Stephens picked up the win with four inning of work on the hill for White Rock.

New report highlights potential pitfalls couples face when transferring assets to the next generation RBC Wealth Management offers tips to make estate planning process a smooth one TORONTO, June 10, 2014 - An estimated $1 trillion, or more, is positioned to change hands in Canada over the coming years as baby boomers age and assets begin to transfer to younger generations. The country’s high-net-worth population alone held close to $900 billion in investable assets in 2013, according to RBC Wealth Management, and with improving economic conditions that figure is likely to grow. This impending transfer of wealth is putting the onus on baby boomers to ensure that their estate plans are crystal clear about how a lifetime of hard-earned assets are to be managed upon their passing.

“No one likes to think about death, let alone build an actual plan around that fateful day,” says Tony Maiorino, vice-president and head, RBC Wealth Management Services at RBC Wealth Management. “But one of the most important financial decisions you can make during your lifetime is to take the time to develop a well-thought-out estate plan to ensure assets are seamlessly transferred according to your wishes.” A new report by RBC Wealth Management – Until Death Do Us Part…Then Everything Can Change – explores a key aspect of estate planning for married couples, in particular, and that’s the critical role a surviving spouse plays in managing and maintaining family wealth for future generations.

“We find that when we talk to couples about estate planning, most of them naturally focus on their kids,” Maiorino says. “Children are an important part of the decision-making process, no doubt, but a comprehensive estate plan needs to consider an important step before the kids, and that’s the surviving spouse.” Until Death Do Us Part … Then Everything Can Change provides a comprehensive, plain-language look at estate planning essentials for married couples in Canada, including the various ways to leave assets to a spouse, while allowing the estate to seamlessly flow through to the next generation.

Surrey

City helps kick campaign into World Record book Kyle Benning

Now contributor Twitter @KBBenning

SURREY — Keep your legs straight when kicking. If your knees are bent, you won’t go very far. This was the advice given to around 250 swimming students throughout Surrey on Friday (June 20) as the city participated in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest swimming lesson. The lesson happened during Water Safety Week, an annual global campaign to educate people on water safety. The event is held at pools and recreation centres across the world, but Surrey was one of the few cities in B.C. that participated. Jeffrey Holland, the City of Surrey’s Aquatics Manager, said that staff

at the Newton Wave Pool brought the idea forward, and that they thought it was vitally important. Holland said that the

reason for the lesson is “to make people aware of the importance of water safety” and being able to have basic swimming skills.

“There’s a lot of factors that key in on why people drown, and it’s really important for us to have those fundamental skills to

swim up to 50 metres, to fall in the water and orient yourself. “Surrey residents, like everybody else in B.C., get

out into the water, and they don’t experience that every day close at home. So getting out in lakes, rivers and oceans during the summertime, certainly people are exposed to a different kind of swimming environment and it leads to a little more danger,” Holland said. According to the Red Cross, approximately 525 Canadians die in “unintentional water-related fatalities” every year.

Annual charity ride

Ride2Survive raises $535K NORTH DELTA — This year’s Ride2Survive raised a cool $535,000 in its efforts to beat cancer, with more donations expected to roll in over the coming weeks. The 10th annual charity Saturday ride saw close to 140 cyclists ride 400 kilometres in a single day, from Kelowna to North Delta. Late Saturday, a large group of people gathered to cheer the cyclists as they rolled into a parking lot on the Delta side of Scott Road upon finishing their ride, which began at around 3:30 a.m. in West Kelowna. For video, visit Thenownewspaper.com.

On Sunday, cyclists and crew gathered at the North Delta home of Kerry Kunzli, president of Ride2Survive, to clean trailers, bikes and other things used during the ride. Kunzli and fellow Deltan Shawn Elliott have done the ride for 10 years in a row. “Every year is different, and I felt better this year than last year,” Kunzli said with a smile. Planning for the 2015 Ride2Survive has already begun. For details, visit Ride2Survive.ca. Tom Zillich

ENGAGE Event on Wednesday

Clothing drive at annual fashion showcase SOUTH SURREY — Pizzazz International Model and Talent is both giving and accepting donations of clothing at its annual fashion showcase, which takes place Wednesday (June 25) in the ballroom at Pacific Inn Resort & Conference Centre in South Surrey. Each of the more than 50 models will give away some part of their wardrobe they haven’t recently worn to Sources Community Resource Centre’s Women’s Place. Attendees are encouraged to bring in their own clean, unwanted clothing (on hangers) for donation. This year they are accepting maternity wear, kids and baby clothes as well. “Part of what we teach our models is to be Role Models in their community,” said Dale Harding, owner/founder of Pizzazz International. “They have to sort and clean out their clothes closets, so we thought it would be a good tie-in with Sources Women’s Place, for their women there that are transitioning out of abusive relationships and on their own into the work force again.” Sources Women’s Place offers a clothing exchange that gives away close to 400

large bags of clothing monthly, including business, maternity and casual wear. Sources Helps up to 24,000 women per year. “It’s probably one of our most frequented resources,” said Denise Darrell, Sources Director of Women, Seniors and Community Services. Darrell has no idea how much clothing to expect at the event Wednesday, but if it’s as good as last time, there will be quite a few happy ladies. “No matter what, we’ll have

someone there to handle it.” “If there are some exceptional coats and bags that are donated once again at the fashion showcase, we’ll revisit the liveauction aspect I presented the last time to an audience of 250, but this year with our Pizzazz model graduates, and that money will also go to Sources Women’s Place as a cash donation,” said showcase assistant Victoria Clements. The reception starts at 6:30 p.m.

Wednesday with a cocktail hour, entertainment, a silent auction and a fashion show. Models take the runway at 7:30 p.m., featuring designs by Jeassea Thyidor, Jan Bautista and Aileen Twa, recent fashion grads from Kwantlen Polytechnic University. Also featured on the runway will be local shops and fashion boutiques Sereno Spa, Cheryl’s Trading Post, She’s some Kind of Wonderful, Sasso Moda, Triple Flip Kids Clothing, Betty Be Good and Eyebar Eyewear Boutique. The awards ceremony begins at 9 p.m. and includes the best TV commercial, most photogenic and best runway walk, with personal development scholarship training awarded to the winners.

Gate’s down but rail safety still on agenda Baldwin says long-term solution might include rail safety arms; Campbell renews calls for CCTV cameras Christopher Poon

Now staff Twitter @Questionchris

A public rally was held Friday to protest increasingly restricted access to the beach in White Rock. (Photo: CHRISTOPHER POON) proposed safety measures so far is around $1.8 million. How much of that the city actually ends up paying remains to be seen. “We expect a good piece to be picked up by federal government and some, if not the rest, by the railroad,” he said. “We’re prepared to pay some of it if that’s what it takes to make the tracks safe for people on the crossing.” A public rally was also held Friday by residents concerned not only with increasingly restricted access to the beach, but also the matter of rail safety. Participants were passing around a petition

that will be forwarded to all parties involved asking for beach access to be restored as well as limiting or stopping entirely the movement of dangerous goods through the waterfront. And while the city continues to work with Transport Canada and BNSF to solve the issue, Coun. Alan Campbell wondered if CCTV might be another way to step up rail safety. “A few years ago I was an advocate of CCTV on the beach, lots of stuff goes on down there including trespassing on the railway,” said Campbell.

There was talk at the council table in 2012 of possibly putting CCTV cameras down on White Rock’s waterfront for community safety, but the idea never went anywhere. However Campbell said the city should seriously consider it in light of recent events. “So we can be in a position to monitor something going on down there, cars on the tracks or people on the tracks, which is what brought this to a head,” he said. “Then we’d be in a position to send someone down there to either get people off, issue tickets.”

WHITE ROCK — With the gate at the West Beach boat launch now a thing of the past, mayor Wayne Baldwin is hoping the city can come to a long-term agreement that satisfies all parties involved, while maintaining beach access for residents and tourists. The contention arose two weeks ago when Transport Canada ordered the city to hastily erect a gate at the boat launch the morning of June 10 following a recent safety visit by an inspector. According to Baldwin, after observing the area the inspector determined the west beach area unsafe and ordered public access to be restricted, which was to be done by the city immediately. After almost universal opposition by residents and the city, Transport Canada allowed the city to remove the gate Thursday after a series of proposed safety measures were accepted. Those measures included increased signs and more painted warnings on either side of the track. “So we completed the work, put the signage up and (the inspector) went and looked at it on Wednesday,” said Baldwin. “He was happy with it and he revoked the orders and the fence is now done.” Now, Baldwin is hopeful that the longterm solution will not prove to be nearly as restrictive. While a final plan has yet to be determined, Baldwin said it might include rail safety arms similar to what’s present at the pier crossing. “That remains to be seen, but if we keep using it for vehicles I suppose you might put in rail arms. It all depends on what the final outcome of our discussions are with BNSF and Transport Canada,” he said. Asked how much all of the safety measures would end up costing the city, Baldwin said he wasn’t sure at this point, but noted that the estimates for all of the

Recent violence not specific to Surrey: Watts Tom Zytaruk

Now staff Twitter @tomzytaruk

SURREY — Let’s hope this week is better. Last week, Surrey experienced a terrible week of violent death, with three homicides in five days. While “very tragic for sure,” Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts said, hers is not the only city seeing recent violence. Vancouver, like Surrey, has also had seven homicides so far this year, and a man was injured in gunfire at Brentwood mall in Burnaby on Saturday. Violence, she noted, is happening

“throughout the Lower Mainland” and she says authorities need to coordinate their efforts to tackle it on a regional scale. Last November, Watts launched a task force aimed at curbing violent crime in Surrey after the city hit a record high 25 homicides in 2013 – almost half of all cases in the Lower Mainland. She noted that so far this year, Surrey’s homicide rate is significantly lower than during the same period last year, which saw 13 homicides. Surrey RCMP Sgt. Dale Carr echoed that. Last year’s number of homicides to date was “more than double” this year’s, he noted.

Jessica Ashley Hanley, now 25, killed Tashina Rae Sutherland, 23, inside a small rancher at 10593 138th St. in Whalley, on April 26, 2012. The women were friends since childhood, and shared the same birthday. Hanley pleaded guilty to the lesser offence of manslaughter on Monday, at the beginning of the fourth week of her second-degree murder trial in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster. Minus time served, Hanley will spend another seven years and nine months in prison.

People gathered on the sidewalk, for a look. “You turn the TV on in the morning and there’s something going on all the time,” one bystander remarked.

Police are doing what they can to fight crime, he said, but if someone is absolutely determined to kill someone, he said, it will happen. “Sometimes it happens in Surrey.” Meantime, Surrey’s seventh homicide of 2014, and the third last week alone, was in the 2400-block of 156th Street in South Surrey, where the body of Timothy Szabolcsi, 52, was found inside a rancher on Friday morning.
