Locally, the staples of the North Surrey Lions – a group of more than three dozen volunteers dedicated to helping community groups – are pancake breakfasts, burger sales and meat draws. The cash donations the club receives from doling out sausages and flapjacks – along with silent and live auctions – support such charities as the John Moralek Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation, the Surrey Christmas Bureau and the Centre for Child Development. There were nearly 30 organizations that benefitted last year from the $25,000 raised by the North Surrey Lions, says president John Moralek.

Serpentine victim succumbs to injuries Second driver now identiﬁed by Tracy Holmes A VANCOUVER woman who was
trapped underwater for 90 minutes following a Feb. 28 crash into the Serpentine River has died. Cpl. Aaron Sproule, of the RCMP’s Lower Mainland District Traffic Services, confirmed Wednesday the woman was pronounced dead March 12 at Royal Columbian Hospital. At the request of her family, her name will not be released, Sproule said. In addition, Sproule said police now have identified the driver of a second vehicle believed to have been involved in the incident, and are suggesting charges against the second driver. The victim, in her 20s, was southbound in the 4600-block of Highway 99 just before 10 a.m. when she plunged through a barrier on the Serpentine River bridge into the murky water below. Her black Honda Civic settled upside-down on the river bottom. She was resuscitated at the scene and airlifted to hospital, but succumbed 11 days later. Sproule said the woman’s family has asked for privacy at this time. “We’d again like to thank the witnesses who came forward to assist us in this investigation,” Sproule said in a prepared statement. “Without them, it would have been much harder to piece together how this tragic event unfolded.”

One of three full-size gymnasiums in the Cloverdale Recreation Centre, located at 6188 176 St.
Lots of room to move New 66,000-sq-ft. Cloverdale Recreation Centre now open by Jennifer Lang MONTHS OF construction finally over, the new Cloverdale Recreation Centre
welcomed its first visitors Monday morning, quietly opening for a few badminton games, lunch-time workouts and other activities. The $20-million facility is so new, scaffolding was still attached to one of the exterior walls before the weekend. A peek inside revealed a gleaming foyer, spacious workout rooms and activity areas. The new recreation centre at 6188 176 St. is home to three full-size gymnasiums, a large fitness and weight room, and multipurpose rooms for
pre-school, seniors and youth spaces. At 66,000-sq.-ft., the facility is similar in design to the city’s Guildford and South Surrey Recreation centres. It’s open for drop-in gym sports, weight room, fitness classes, childminding and spring break camps. The Cloverdale Recreation Centre swings into full operation Monday, April 4, when the hours of operation will be from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday to Friday and from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. During the soft opening, operating hours (in effect to April 2) are Monday to Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. For more information, call 604-598-7960 during operating hours.
Lions: North Surrey group meets twice monthly From Page 1

North Surrey Lions members serve up one of their famous pancake breakfasts during an event last year.
Moralek, a former auctioneer who has been with the club for five years, was named Lion of the Year for District 19H this week – the same week he learned that Mayor Dianne Watts had proclaimed today (Friday, March 18) International Lions Day in Surrey. “There’s a lot of hard-working Lions out there,” Moralek says. “They had to choose one, and I happened to be fortunate enough to be the one chosen. It’s not something one person can do, they have to have a good club supporting them.” The North Surrey Lions is one of 45,000 Lions Clubs with 1.35 million members around the globe. It’s said to be the largest service organization in the world, and has recently pledged $1.25 million to aid postearthquake Japan. Locally, the North Surrey Lions
have built wheelchair ramps in homes, donated to the Alzheimer Society of B.C. and supported community sports teams. This weekend, they’ll have concession stands at Newton Athletic Park at the Mayor’s Cup Soccer Tournament. (The Cloverdale Lions will have a similar setup at Cloverdale Athletic Park). Ongoing projects include Mile of Toonies, which is hoped to collect $110,000 for SMH with the help of Prospera Credit Union (where they’re collecting donations from the public) and other fundraising ventures. Membership at the North Surrey Lions has remained stable over the years at 39. “It’s actually pretty even this year – we hope to grow a little bit yet,” says first vice-president Chuck Leblanc, who is also the zone chair for the nine clubs of Zone 19H. To bring fresh blood into their
ranks, the North Surrey Lions formed a local Leo Club for students aged 14-16 last fall. The group’s 13 young volunteers, based at Kwantlen Park Secondary School, helped raise money for the Surrey Christmas Bureau. The North Surrey Lions Club meets the first and third Tuesday of every month from September to June at the Compass Point Inn (9850 King George Hwy.) from 7-9 p.m. New members are welcome. On April 29, the club will host its Reverse Draw Dinner at 7 p.m. at Compass Point Inn. Tickets for this fundraiser are $50. Visitors have a 10 per cent chance of a free dinner with the reverse draw. One winner will get $1,000. For more information, call John Moralek at 604-2304244. For more information about the club, visit www.northsurreylionsclub.com firstname.lastname@example.org

At the door of homelessness One-day count surveys homeless in Metro Vancouver by Kevin Diakiw HAULING A shopping cart full of plastic bottles and pop cans, he appears to be one of Surrey’s many homeless. However, he’s clear-eyed and well-groomed, and has a wife and six-year-old twins at home. Augmenting his income? “This is my income,” sighs 38-year-old Sean Campbell. He lost his job with a scaffolding company a few years ago and has been on social
assistance ever since. The $700 a month he gets for housing doesn’t cover rent. Because the twins are opposite sex, Campbell says the government requires them to have separate bedrooms by age six. His three-bedroom apartment costs him $1,000 a month, so he takes $300 from his $427 food and utilities allowance to cover the rest. He collects bottles to pay for the utilities and the food the family needs. See HOMELESS COUNT / Page 5

Surrey/North Delta Leader 7
Drink more water, bottled and on tap Building solutions
I READ WITH INTEREST the article written by
Jeff Nagel, “Bottled water use cut in half says survey,” The Leader, March 16. In the piece, Mr. Nagel quotes research conducted recently by Metro Vancouver that indicates that only 11 per cent of those contacted consume bottled water – down 50 per cent from 2008. According to independent consumer products research firm Neilsen Research (www. neilsen.com), which charts actual sales of bottled water in Vancouver and elsewhere across Canada, sales in the period measured by
Metro Vancouver dropped about 10 per cent – a situation largely driven by the recent economic downturn. Further, according to independent market research firm Probe Research (www.proberesearch.com), more than 25 per cent of Canadians, including Vancouver residents, drink bottled water every day. About 70 per cent of them drink both tap water and bottled water. They drink tap water at home and bottled water away from home. Given that less than one per cent of the water
produced by Metro Vancouver for its residents is consumed for hydration purposes, it is unlikely that the consumption of bottled water has any impact on municipal system usage. We encourage Vancouver residents to drink more water for better health, whether bottled or tap. Why? We don’t compete with tap water. We compete with other bottled beverages.

Lessons from a human tragedy THE ANGUISH the people of Japan
must be going through in the horrific aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami is unimaginable. Their calm stoicism and amazing resilience is to be greatly admired. Watching the international community rushing to help, as they have in other recent disasters, is also to be admired and it is deeply moving. However, the tragedy in Japan has raised fresh questions about the safety and advisability of nuclear power in earthquakeprone parts of the world. For instance, the nuclear nightmare currently unfolding in Japan will undoubtedly put the brakes on any thought to expand nuclear power in an earthquake-prone state like California. That leaves a big question for California: How will it replace the carbon-intensive energy sources it currently relies on without resorting to nuclear power? Solar energy is definitely one clean energy option that California has in abundance, but it is also one of the more costly clean energy sources available. In the same spirit of oneness and empathy the world feels with the people of Japan, British Columbians should perhaps look to how we can help our nearby friends
YOU CAN’T BLAME the provincial
government all the way for not providing funding for infrastructure, including schools. When a municipality builds without a plan, you can expect these problems to happen. There are areas of the Lower Mainland that can be developed where infrastructure is available. We have to think regionally now, not individually. Surrey is putting unnecessary pressure on the provincial government that will ultimately raise taxes for all of us – even people who do not have kids in school. Without trying to sound like a broken record, there is an untapped source of tax money: illegal suites. Come on, all three levels of government can rake in tens of millions of dollars from 30,000-plus illegal suites in Surrey. Stop trying to not offend one demographic of residents who are putting an unfair burden on everyone else. Health services at their max. Schools bursting at the seams. We can’t use the provincial credit card anymore. It’s maxed. Paul Fitzgerald, Cloverdale
Chat with engineers RE: “DON’ SCRAP the Port Mann,
A boy (above) gets checked for radiation exposure in Japan this week. A letter writer suggests that British Columbia has abundant resources to produce clean energy – enough to support neighbours. and neighbours in California meet their clean energy needs. British Columbia has much to offer in this regard because of the great gifts climate and topography
Campbell legacy includes debt RE: CAMPBELL EXITS, his legacy uncertain (B.C. Views,
Feb. 23). I am dismayed about such a simple, misinformed and inaccurate article. There is no mention about our debt which has risen 16 per cent to a total of $48 billion which consumes 24.3 per cent of our provincial GDP! The interest on this debt is consuming $8 million dollars a day – down the drain for what? Adding the provincial debt to the federal at $650 billion and it paints a picture of a house of cards that is starting and will collapse. Responsible reporting and government would have put this front and centre. I wonder if any of you look at what is happening in the U.S. states that threw tax monies down the drain satisfying vote buying and a bloated inefficient bureaucracy.

Society needs time in the penalty box MANY PEOPLE are
bewildered at the absence of intervention when it comes to professional sports such as NHL hockey, in which players frequently violently bash each other in the head. Serious concussions and brain damage are often the result. However, why do so many people fail to acknowledge that such barbaric conduct is only one of many such ugly indicators of how society tolerates violence against males?
The proof is in the proverbial pudding, be it a female Hollywood-movie character gratuitously slamming her knee into her man’s groin, at which the movie audience breaks out into laughter as the guy keels over in agony, or a man punching another man senseless with almost-bare-knuckled “ultimate fighting” as the audience cheers on or screams in some twisted euphoria. As society tolerates – even celebrates – violence against males, there will
be undesirable repercussions that few academics are willing to acknowledge: Violence against females. I find it folly for society to insist on the total abolition of occurrences of violence against women while that same society intently resists eliminating all violence in which boys/men are the victims. Societal conduct simply does not work that way. Frank G. Sterle, Jr. White Rock
move it.” Letter writer John Call’s call is to move the Port Mann Bridge down the river in order to replace the old Pattullo Bridge – a very interesting idea. It appears that I do not have any more letters after my name than John Call, and I would discuss it with a professional engineer before pushing it any further. We have our limitations. Once the new bridge is completed, it appears to be in the way of moving the old bridge, past it. That is under it. It appears to me to be cheaper to build a Bailey Bridge, composed of pre-fabricated sections. Cost seems to be the problem in building a new Pattullo Bridge – best left the experts to decide.

Fourteen schools to host vulnerable Surrey students resources to participate in organized activities over spring break are being given the opportunity to do so with Surrey School District’s DREAM program. The initiative was started last year after the Surrey Board of Education lengthened spring break from one week to two, and expressed concerns the extension would have a negative impact on childcare challenges for lowincome families, as well as students who benefit from consistent learning, structure and activities. DREAM (Drama, Extracurricular, Arts and Music) was held weekdays in 10 schools, with community organizations hosting workshops, demonstrations and classes to “vulnerable” students. “The response was overwhelmingly positive, and the response from our community partners and their willingness to be involved was surprisingly positive,”
Bryce and Hunter Kyle attended last year’s DREAM (Drama, Recreation, Extracurricular, Arts, and Music) Camp over spring break at K.B. Woodward Elementary. said Community Schools Partnership co-ordinator Merlin Chatwin. Not only is DREAM returning this spring break (March 21 to April 1) but it has expanded to 14 schools. Eighty students selected by their schools for the program will be participating at each location, including Jessie Lee and George Greenaway elementaries. “It’s definitely our vulnerable population. When school is out, they’re not engaged in
Historic learning for youth
learning opportunities,” Chatwin said, noting a family with resources may take children on excursions or holidays during the break. “A lot of our students in our inner city schools are sitting at home unsupervised and not participating in anything that has any real benefit for them.” Chatwin said there are 26 inner-city schools in Surrey, and many of their students face barriers such as transportation and cost when it comes
to participating in activities outside the classroom. “We bring in those opportunities and it’s all free of charge,” he said. “They’re both learning during their break time but also experiencing opportunities that they wouldn’t have exposure to otherwise.” With around 30 community partners having jumped on board this year, students are sure to experience a range of encounters, whether it be a session with White Rock’s Seung-ri Black Belt Academy or a visit by South Surrey’s Urban Safari. Chatwin said DREAM is a continuation of work done regularly by Community Schools Partnership, which is offered by the school district and City of Surrey. “We definitely are always recruiting community partners and businesses and anyone whose interested in supporting students,” he said. “We’re always looking for them because this is part of what we do all year round.”

are trying to calm fears that B.C. residents may become contaminated by radiation carried here from the nuclear disaster underway in Japan. The B.C. Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) said Wednesday no abnormal radiation levels have so far been detected by an international network of monitoring sites put in place along the entire West Coast in the wake of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear accident. “We do not expect any health risk following the nuclear reactor releases in Japan,” said provincial health officer Dr. Perry Kendall. That hasn’t stopped some people from snapping up supplies of potassium iodide tablets, which can be used to neutralize the harmful effects of radioactive iodine, including thyroid cancer. BCCDC officials said the potassium iodide tablets would only help people exposed to higher levels of radiation within 30 kilometres of the stricken Fukushima Daiichi
“My concern is that we are kept up to date honestly...” Lois Jackson Metro Vancouver Board Chair Lois Jackson said she wants a better picture of the potential threat in a worst-case scenario after the issue was raised at a meeting of the region’s mayors Wednesday morning. “The outcome of a disaster of this sort could be very widespread,” she said. “The cloud rises up into the jet stream and what goes up must come down. “My concern is that we are kept up to date honestly so we’re not as a nation scrambling if the worst was

to happen.” Jackson wants to find out from the federal government precisely where and how many radiation monitoring stations are located in B.C. “It’s concerning to me that we don’t have that information.” Neither Metro Vancouver’s air quality monitoring network nor the provincial government have any capability to measure wind-borne radiation that could come across the Pacific if nuclear reactors in Japan melt down. Air quality planning manager Roger Quan said Metro monitors various types of pollutants at stations across the Lower Mainland, but they aren’t equipped to detect radiation. Kendall said there are four federally run sites on Vancouver Island and one in the Lower Mainland that continuously sample for radiation and data can also be drawn from other international stations in the Pacific at islands like Guam. SFU nuclear chemist Jean-Claude Brodovitch said he agrees with Kendall’s assessment of the risks, adding there is no sign of radiation reaching B.C. “We have our own equipment we monitor with and we haven’t seen anything,” he said. Although small amounts of radioactive iodine were detected in plants such as seaweed off the North American coast after Chernobyl, Brodovitch said that doesn’t equate to any significant human risk. “There could be transportation of some dust in the atmosphere,” he said. “But when it gets around the globe it’s extremely diluted. After 7,000 kilometres, it would not be a real concern.” Asked about the potential that radiation could enter the food chain, potentially via contaminated crops, Brodovitch said that was

nuclear plant, where explosions or coolant failures at multiple reactors threaten to cause a meltdown. Kendall urged pharmacies not to dispense or stockpile the pills after an apparent run on them by spooked shoppers. Even if there is a major release of radiation into the atmosphere from northeast Japan, Kendall said the particles would be so widely dispersed on their fiveto six-day jet stream trip to North America that is unlikely they could pose a health risk. “All the scenarios say that for us, because of the distance we are away, no they would not be posing a significant health risk to British Columbians.” He cautioned against comparing Chernobyl, where the reactor fuel burned and sent large amounts of long-lasting radiation across Europe, to the Japanese reactors, which have containment facilities and are less likely to release large amounts of long-lasting radioactive isotopes.

and strengthen the legislature and other buildings on the grounds, built in the late 19th century. The report notes that despite upgrades in the 1970s and 1980s, the legislature does not meet B.C. building codes related to earthquake and fire risk. It says the copper roof domes are â€œin poor condition,â€? and parts of the building such as parapet caps, roofing and glazing are â€œfailing.â€? The report estimated the cost of repairs at more than $140 million, with millions more to upgrade adjacent buildings known as the armouries, premierâ€™s garage and bunker. Shirley Bond, named this week at public safety minister, said the legislature precinct is the responsibility of Speaker Bill Barisoff. Barisoff has said the public expects the B.C. government to complete its seismic upgrades of schools around the province before major work is done at the legislature. The education ministry is in the midst of a 15-year, $1.5 billion program to upgrade school structures. Its latest progress report shows that 90 projects are complete, mainly in the Lower Mainland and on Vancouver Island. Another 21 are under construction, with 10 more projects preparing to start. tďŹ‚firstname.lastname@example.org

Former Surrey planner charged with fraud Crown approved several charges against Akonyu Akolo on Tuesday by Kevin Diakiw A FORMER Surrey planner has been charged with misappropriating funds in regards to a development application. Surrey RCMP said North Delta’s Akonyu Akolo has been charged with breach of trust by a public officer, corrupt municipal official, secret commissions, and fraudulent concealment. The former planner was reported to the city by a developer last April, causing Akolo’s termination and sparking a criminal investigation. During the course of their investigation, police found no criminal wrongdoing on the side of
the developer or any other City of Surrey staff. None of the allegations against Akolo have been proven in court. Akolo, who has his masters degree in planning from UBC, was in charge of area planning and development for South Surrey. Reached on his cellphone Tuesday, Akolo referred comment to his lawyer Marvin Stern. Stern would only say that it’s been a lengthy investigation and he couldn’t offer a great deal about the case, as he has not seen the particulars. “We don’t have any information whatsoever,” Stern said Tuesday. “I know that the investigation has been a lengthy one, because I’ve

The city alleges Akolo used the city’s money in the purchase of a house on Chateau Wynd in North Delta with an assessed value of $624,000, according to a CBC report. Surrey has placed a notice of pending litigation on the title to Akolo’s home. Surrey said in its claim that it is seeking general damages, special damages and punitive damages from Akolo. It is not clear whether a civil writ has been served on Akolo.

A SURREY MAN is dead after a truck collided with his car last week. At just after 5 p.m. last Friday, a 1996 Ford pick-up heading westbound on 103 Avenue hit the driverâ€™s side door of 80-year-old Bob Seligâ€™s 2002 Chrysler 300, which was heading northbound on 128 Street. Selig died at the scene. Early indications are that Selig may have failed to stop at an intersection when the truck driven by a man from Langley struck the car. Speed or impairment are not believed to be a factors in the accident. â€œItâ€™s still early in the investigation, where we need to talk to more witnesses and do a mechanical (inspection),â€? said Surrey RCMP Cpl.

More than half of the 180 students participating in the annual Lower Fraser Valley Skills Canada Regional Competition at Kwantlen Polytechnic University this month were from Surrey schools. Competing in 14 categories, local teens walked away with 26 medals. “We are extremely proud of all our student participants,” Susan Chow, the district’s career education principal, said in a release. “It was a wonderful learning experience for them to showcase their skills and be acknowledged for their achievements.” Surrey students earned six gold, seven silver and nine bronze medals in 12 categories. The results from the Virtual TV/Video Production and Virtual Website Development categories will be announced later this month. All gold medalists will advance to the provincial Skills Canada Competition in April, and winners from that event will compete in the national competition this June in Quebec. National winners advance to the WorldSkills international even in London in October.

Quest for ShelterBox Rotary Club promoting relief efforts for Japan by Philip Raphael THE ROTARY Club of
Tsawwassen and Point Roberts is asking the public to think about the ShelterBox organization when donating funds to earthquake relief efforts in Japan. ShelterBox provides supplies and equipment to disaster areas around the world in a convenient package. Tsawwassen’s Jen Kormendy is a ShelterBox response team member who has seen first-hand how the big green plastic ShelterBox tubs – packed with all the items that can
set up a temporary household, including a tent that can sleep up to 10 – can make a big difference. Since 2009 she has been on three assignments: the Philippines in October 2009, and Mexico and Guatemala in 2010. “Often at these times, people want to help but don’t know where to direct their charitable dollars,” Kormendy said. “ShelterBox does such a great job getting the aid quickly and effectively to the people most in need.” To donate the ShelterBox, which is supported worldwide by
Rotary members, visit shelterboxcanada.org. “It costs $1,000 to sponsor an individual box. Smaller donations are happily accepted as well,” Kormendy says. “If you consider that families have been known to live in ShelterBox tents for over a year, it costs less than $3 a day to provide a family with shelter, warmth and dignity, and help them rebuild after
the original HOT YOGA
Suffering g from
losing everything.” Due to work and family commitments, Kormendy said she will not be able to be deployed to Japan until May. However, a member of ShelterBox Canada’s Board of Directors is currently there. The Canadian Red Cross is also accepting donations at redcross.ca to assist with relief efforts. firstname.lastname@example.org

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

Metro pay rules to draw line at triple dipping Cap would let directors collect for no more than two meetings per day by Jeff Nagel METRO VANCOUVER directors
will vote next month on whether to limit themselves to being paid for no more than two meetings a day, even if they manage to squeeze in three or more. Metro directors are paid $322 for each meeting they attend, or $644 if a meeting runs longer than four hours. That’s over and above their pay from local municipalities for serving as elected mayors and councillors. Under the current no-limit policy, some directors have occasionally attended three different Metro meetings in the same day and collected $966. But a proposed change would cap the maximum daily pay for meeting attendance at $644, equivalent to two regular-length meetings. Metro’s finance committee narrowly voted in favour of the change Tuesday, but it still requires the approval of the full board in late April. North Vancouver City Mayor Darrell Mussatto supported the change.
“I’ve never had three meetings in a day myself,” he said. “A twomeetings-a-day cap is, I think, appropriate.” Langley City Coun. Gayle Martin, however, opposed the new limit and said it’s rare that a politician is paid for attending more than two meetings. “I think it happened three times last year,” she said. “But I think if you attend three meetings in a day, you should get paid for three meetings.” The cap would also limit a director to just $644 in pay if they attend two meet-ings in a day but one is over four hours, a scenario that until now was worth $966. That could happen when a Metro board meeting runs over time, from say 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and directors later attend an evening public hearing. Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie, who chairs the finance committee, supports the change, saying it also aligns with the $644
limit on how much directors can be paid for meetings in a full day while travelling out of town on Metro business. “It keeps it consistent with the travel policy,” Brodie said. “We just wanted to be reasonable.” The Metro board is also revising its travel policy for attending conferences and meetings outs outside the region. It indicates directtors will now be expected to minimize expenses and travel time such as overnight stays w wherever possible. It will also ban dir directors from claiming meal m costs when they are at events where meals are provided. The policy calls for directors to fly economy class while travelling. But on flights over nine hours, directors are allowed to upgrade to business class or else stay in economy but arrive a day ahead of schedule, with an extra day’s travel pay. email@example.com

The Metro jobless rate is up 2.3 percentage points from 6.9 per cent in November and the overall B.C. rate is up to 8.8 per cent in January from 7.0 per cent in November, according to Statistics Canada.

main breadwinner, he says, but a spouse who works parttime when possible to bring in extra income. More younger people are also likely looking again, he said. An extra 8,900 jobs were counted in B.C. in January, although almost all of them were part-time. The level of part-time work still remains at near-record levels, Pastrick said, adding he’d hoped to see more converted to full-time employment by now. But he expects the unemployment rate to decline in the months ahead, as more jobs are created and the overall B.C. economy grows by an estimated 2.9 per cent this year. Pastrick noted Statistics Canada’s jobless rate is seasonally adjusted and can be quite volatile, so he wouldn’t be surprised if the high January figure proves something of a blip.

A LEADER SPECIAL SERIES
Courthouse crunch: ‘Tragic, hopelessly booked, ridiculous’ From page 1
Lack of sheriffs adding to delays Union says hiring freeze has reduced security by Kevin Diakiw FOLLOWING A B.C. government-
imposed hiring freeze, the number of sheriffs in this province has dropped by almost 20 per cent in recent years, forcing some judges to close court sessions. Last January, three judges in Victoria cancelled the day’s agenda because there were not enough deputy sheriffs on hand. “This isn’t the first time that’s happened. It’s happened in Nanaimo, it’s happened on other occasions,” said Dean Purdy, chair of Corrections and Sheriffs Services Component of the B.C. Government Employees Union. See HIRING / Page 20
An estimated 2,000 additional criminal cases still stuck in the system have already been delayed so long, they are at risk of being thrown out as well. And there’s no end in sight. So clogged are the courts – particularly in Surrey – that judges are increasingly outspoken in denouncing the logjam and lack of resources that threaten the integrity of the entire system. “The backlog is so great and the courts so crowded that in many cases there will be an unreasonable delay should there be even one adjournment on a trial date,” warned Surrey Provincial Court Judge Peder Gulbransen last November, as he tossed out the prosecution of an impaired driver who waited 32 months for a trial date. “Justice delayed is justice denied,” ruled Judge Ronald Webb last year, in staying the case in Cranbrook against an accused cocaine dealer who waited more than two years for a trial expected to take just three hours. Another troubling example is that of an alleged child rapist in Coquitlam whose trial never went ahead because the system apparently couldn’t afford to translate victims’ statements quickly enough so the accused could understand them. Police requests for funding for the translations had been denied and the trial was repeatedly delayed. “It is very disturbing that the value of the complainants’ sexual, physical and emotional integrity is less than the cost of translation and transcription,” Judge Marion Buller Bennett ruled last year. She ordered the multiple charges of assault, assault with a weapon, sexual assault, incest and sexual touching of a young person be dropped after a two-year wait. The judge called it “a tragedy” for all, including the accused – a man who was publicly identified but
“You can see the alarm bells being raised in multiple places...”
had no chance to clear his name. The case is now being reviewed by B.C. Representative for Children and Youth Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond, who called it a “very grave” situation. “I’m very concerned about these delays,” she said in an interview. “You can see the alarm bells being raised in multiple places in British Columbia in the court system.”
ut judges’ hands are tied. They are bound by Supreme Court of Canada rulings that firmly limit how long cases can be prolonged before the constitutional right of the accused to a fair trial has been violated and a stay of proceedings must be entered. Defence lawyers can’t deliberately drag their feet to get a case tossed. In deciding a delay is unacceptable, judges count only the slowdowns attributed to the system itself or Crown-requested adjournments. They must also conclude the defendant was harmed in some way by the wait. But B.C.’s case backlog now leaves virtually no room for any kind of error that could cause delay.
Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond
Some cases are quashed after as little as 14 months, and the applications become much harder for the Crown to fend off when the accused has waited more than 18 months. In Surrey, a typical one-day impaired driving trial is now being set for July of 2012 – an immediate 16-month time period that puts the case close to the cusp of being tossed from the start. Year-long-plus delays from the outset are now common at many courthouses around the province. The judges themselves tabled a damning report last September titled “Justice Delayed” that warned “thousands of cases are at risk” of being dropped due to too much time elapsing between charges being laid and an accused’s day in court. At that time, there were 17 fewer provincial court judges on the bench than in 2005 – a 12-per-cent decrease. B.C. is the only province in Canada where the number of sitting judges decreased over that period, despite a growing population, rising caseload and increased complexity of many trials. Coupled with inadequate numbers of Crown prosecutors, court clerks and sheriffs, the report said, the available court time to handle cases is down significantly and is unable to keep pace with the rising demand. In Surrey alone, the report said, it would take three more full-time judges hearing criminal trials for two years to reduce wait times to acceptable levels.
ince those findings, there’s little sign of improvement. Six new judges have been appointed since October 2010, but others retired so the net increase is just two positions. Front-line prosecutors, lawyers and court staff believe that’s insufficient to stop the deterioration of the system. “The situation has gotten worse, undeniably,” said Samiran Lakshman, president of the B.C. Crown Counsel Association. “It’s becoming more dire as the days go on.” Despite the extra judges, the number of adult criminal cases older than 18 months in the system climbed from just over 2,000 last fall to more than 2,100 by February 2011.

Complex trials: Use vast amount of resources From page 19 Trials aren’t just lined up far into the future but also stacked three and four deep on the same day – dates that Judge Webb called “hopelessly overbooked.” Staff shortages aren’t the only problem. Physical courtroom space is in short supply in many areas, a result of the government’s 2002 decision to close 24 courthouses, including ones in Delta, Burnaby, Hope, Maple Ridge and Squamish, increasing the load on neighbouring courts. Major criminal trials involving organized crime – such as the “Surrey Six” murders or the UN Gang prosecution – aren’t expected to
be lost to delay. But Lakshman warns time-intensive megatrials suck up vast amounts of resources for courts, police and prosecutors, leaving less
NEXT FRIDAY: Victims in Limbo time to dispense justice for more run-of-themill criminals. He argues any money saved by the province
Hiring: Freeze affecting staffing From page 19 “Courts are being delayed and justice is being delayed.” Over the past few years, Purdy says a hiring freeze has been invoked by the province, causing a 17-percent drop in the number of available sheriffs in B.C., from 520 to 430. Because of that, vacancies in court are being filled with corrections officers for extra security. In three separate courthouses in the Fraser Valley, where there are high-security gang trials being held, Purdy said they’ve had to bring in corrections officers to provide back-up in court. “They’re just getting by by the skin of their teeth,” Purdy said. “Delays in our already crowded courtrooms is a problem. They’re already backed up enough and adding to that is just an ongoing problem.” B.C.’s Criminal Justice Branch has since hired 24 auxiliary sheriffs, but Purdy said there will have to be more. Court cases are becoming more complicated and more dangerous, particularly with the number of accused gangster trials coming up. The union has been calling for metal detectors at each of the courtrooms, as is done in Alberta. Purdy also estimates another 50 to 100 sheriffs will be needed to keep court proceedings moving. That would require an annual investment of about $5 million. While there’s been no firm commitment, the fact judges are shutting down proceedings due to the absence of a sheriff has the government’s attention, Purdy said. “Nothing was done until we reached the critical point we’re in now.”
through justice system austerity is a false economy, considering the money blown bringing accused criminals to court but not quite to trial. Cases are being terminated after police have conducted a full investigation and submitted charge recommendations. After Crown has read the file and approved charges. After charges have been sworn in court. And after many appearances before a judge, prosecutor, clerk and sheriff – often with various witnesses waiting to testify. “It’s a complete waste of money,” Lakshman said. “It adds lunacy on top of a ridiculous situation.”

Hurricanes a surprise in cup play Three Surrey squads in Imperial Cup semiﬁnal by Rick Kupchuk THEY FACE the very real possibility of being relegated out of the Vancouver Metro Soccer League’s Premier Division. But despite their 11th place standing and possible demotion to Division One for next season, the Punjab Hurricanes have not only reached the semifinal round of the Imperial Cup, they have also qualified for B.C. Soccer’s Provincial Cup tournament this spring. The Hurricanes stunned third-place Richmond FC 2-1 Saturday at Minoru Park. Ryan Dhillon scored the gamewinning goal on a breakaway with just a few minutes remaining, after taking a pass from Bobby Jhutty.
Jhutty was also part of the first Hurricanes goal, sending a pass to Amar Bains, who watched his shot deflect in off a Richmond defender to give the Surrey side a 1-0 lead five minutes before half time. The Hurricanes were one of three Surrey teams to advance to the semifinal round, as ICST Pegasus and Surrey United also won their quarterfinal matches last weekend. Pegasus stopped Westside FC 4-3 Friday night at Newton Athletic Park. Azad Palani and Omari Aldridge gave Pegasus a 2-0 lead before the game was 30 minutes old. Westside then tied the game, before Palani netted his second of the contest just prior to half time for a 3-2 Pegasus lead. Niko Marcina scored what would prove to be the winning goal in the 60th minute,
upping the difference to 4-2. Pegasus will face the Coquitlam MetroFord Wolves in a semifinal contest Sunday at 5 p.m. at Coquitlam Town Centre. The Surrey United Firefighters needed penalty kicks to get past the Sapperton Rovers 2-1 Saturday at Cloverdale Athletic Park. After a scoreless first half, United took the lead with a little more than 20 minutes to play when Angus Burke finished a cross from Rizal Ganief. Sapperton tied the contest with just minutes to play, and after a scoreless half hour of overtime, the two sides went to a shootout. United netminder Paul Shepherd made two saves in the tiebreakers, sending Surrey on to the next round. They will kick-off against the Punjab

Q ICST Pegasus did a huge favour for rival Surrey United Firefighters, edging the Coquitlam Metro-Ford Wolves 3-2 in a Premier Division contest last Wednesday (March 9) at Newton Athletic Park. The loss left the Wolves seven points back of Surrey with just two games to play, handing United a second consecutive Premier Division championship. Marcini and Palani staked Pegasus to a 2-0 lead in the first half, with Coquitlam getting one back just before the break. Marcini added his second goal on a penalty, one which became the winning goal when the Wolves pulled to within one in the 70th minute.

Gentzler inks college deal
Portfolio tax optimization Tax and income deferral
SURREY EAGLES forward Daniel Gentzler finally has his name on a college scholarship. Last week, the 20-year-old forward, a native of Manhattan Beach, Calif., committed to play hockey next season at Colgate University, an NCAA Div. 1 school in Hamilton, NY. “I’m really excited to keep playing hockey for another four years, which is a dream come true,” Gentzler said. “I’m looking forward to heading there this fall.” The Colgate Raiders play in the competitive Eastern Collegiate Ath-
letic Conference against other strong hockey programs such as Dartmouth, Yale, Quinnipiac and Harvard. Gentzler is in his first year in Surrey, having joined the team just prior to training camp from the Wichita Falls Wildcats of the U.S. Junior Hockey League. In 55 games this season, the versatile Gentzler – who has been used in both goalscoring and checking roles this season, and even briefly as a defenceman – tallied 40 points. “He just does a lot of things well,” said Eagles head coach Matt Erhart. Though he didn’t

Supporting schools WHEN RELATE CHURCH approached the Surrey School
District two years ago asking that the congregation adopt a school, they were told there were four schools in particular need and it would be impossible to pick just one. So the church decided to help all four. Relate was honoured by Surrey school trustees for their “extraordinary support of disadvantaged” students and their families. Since 2009, the church has helped vulnerable students at Old Yale Road, Forsyth Road, Hjorth Road and K.B. Woodward elementary schools. They’ve distributed 2,300 boxes of toys to needy families during the holiday season, collected 160 Christmas hampers and another 80 in the summer, knitted 1,000 mittens, scarves and hats and baked hundreds of cookies for kids and their families. Relate also hosts school barbecues and a weekly beforeschool breakfast and operates a clothing exchange program to provide jackets, shoes and other clothes to the four schools, plus three others.
Priced to move Jayde Wristen, 2, and her great-grandmother Maggie Moore check out items at the recent ‘Forced to Move’ sale at the Bridgeview Flea Market. The fundraiser was for the Burns Bog Conservation Society – the sale’s name alluding to the displaced wildlife in the wake of the South Fraser Perimeter Road’s construction.

RBC’s Harbans Grewall, who presented the cheque to Surrey school board chair Laurae McNally, said RBC is proud to support an initiative that sparks the imagination and creativity of students. “Education and helping students succeed in school is our top priority. It’s an honour to play a small part in supporting this important program and the individuals who bring it to life.” Since 2005, the RBC Foundation has contributed $330,000 to Take P-Art, which provides 6,000 inner-city students in the district the opportunity to participate in artistic creation, event planning, back stage operations and the experience of watching and performing in a top-level theatrical event. Take P-Art kicked off with a performance by hip hop artists from local group Metaphor at the Bell theatre. Metaphor artists will now visit 10 schools, providing hands-on workshops to help students create their own hip hop music and raps that investigate issues of importance to them. The workshops will culminate in a performance by students, many of whom have never been in a professional theatre, at the Bell Centre for Performing Arts on April 21.

or you may fear that the request will be denied but unless you make your request clearly and to the point, the doctor may never know the circumstances you’re facing and/or beliefs that you may hold. The best way to get your or the care recipients’ needs met is simply to ask for it openly. Be clear about what you want to say and what it is that you’re asking for. Some other tips that may assist you in overcoming communication difficulties include: • Take a notebook with you to the appointment so you can make notes and ensure that you have an up-to-date list of all the medications the care receiver’s taking. • Write your questions down so you won’t forget them. List any concerns you may have. • Ask for an appointment that includes extra time to allow the doctor to answer your questions so you don’t feel hurried. • Educate yourself about your loved one’s disease or disability. With all the information on the Internet it is easier than ever before to be informed, but make sure that you’re using a credible website as there can be sites with incorrect or outdated information. • Recognize that not all questions have answers – especially those beginning with “why.” • If the health professional is using technical terms you don’t understand or you are not sure of the meaning, ask them to clarify. • Always clarify any of the health professionals’ instructions until you’re satisfied that you’ve understood exactly what they’ve said and that you’ve also been understood. This could include paraphrasing what you’ve heard in your own words. • Appreciate what the doctor is doing to help and say thank you from time to time.

GVHBA’S 17TH ANNUAL
Surrey is B.C.’s fastest-growing municipality, with a population that is expected to outnumber Vancouver’s within the next 10 to 20 years. Finding a brand-new home that is close to all amenities and major transportation routes while remaining removed from it all may seem an impossibility in such an expanding city, but it is possible at Madison. Build by Lakewood Management, SEE PAGE 2... a local company with more than 40 years experience in the construction industry, Madison features new townhomes near 64 Avenue FEATURE and 144 Street in Surrey. Ranging in size from 1,423 to more than 1,500 square feet, the stylish townhomes are offered in a variety of floorplans in two designer-co-ordinated colour schemes, each designed to maximize the living space while allowing as much natural light inside as possible. A park and the Bell Centre for Performing Arts are both just across the street; the Newton Wave Pool is a short bike ride away and the Canada-U.S. border is an easy drive. Ken Hoyt, a Lakewood sales representative who has been working with the company for 25 years, says the homes speak for themselves. “Lakewood is a high-quality builder and the homes are quality-built,” Hoyt says. “There’s a lot of attention to detail.

Homebuyers line up Saturday.
Buyers line up at Kinﬁeld Rainy spring weather couldn’t keep potential homebuyers away from a Polygon Homes development on the weekend. Despite the soggy forecast, excited new-home buyers lined up for a chance to purchase one of Polygon’s new townhomes at Kinfield, located in the masterplanned community of Westerleigh in West Abbotsford. Polygon notes that this was the first time the B.C.-owned-and-operated company has attempted a launch in Abbotsford, and “the response was overwhelming.” “We were excited to be introducing Kinfield to the market as our company had been looking for a large-scale development opportunity in Abbotsford for a considerable amount of time,” says Polygon president and CEO Neil Chrystal. Kinfield features affordable two- and three-bedroom townhomes designed in a charming Arts and Crafts style on the exterior, while more contemporary interiors are bright, open and welcoming. “These homes are designed to appeal to first-time buyers and young families looking for good value and that is exactly who we saw on the weekend with 21 homes sold on opening day,” Chrystal says. Kinfield is the first collection of townhomes in Westerleigh; when complete, the master-planned community will comprise more than 550 new homes, a new community park, trails and Club West, a residents-only clubhouse featuring 9,800 square feet of resort-style amenities. Homes in the new neighbourhood start from $259,900.
Podmore awarded A well-known Vancouver real estate industry magnate has been recognized by a local magazine as B.C.’s Residential Construction Person of the Year. David Podmore, chairman and CEO of Concert Properties, won the honour for 2010. With more than 30 years experience in the real estate business, Podmore co-founded Concert Properties with Jack Poole, the notable Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games chair, in 1989. “I just love the residential development business. And, in B.C., we have the best industry in the country,” Podmore said in a BC Homes Magazine – the publication behind the annual awards – release. Podmore will be honoured by his colleagues at an awards luncheon in Vancouver on April 8.

Ensuite bathrooms have double sinks, more granite countertops and designer faucets, while designer lighting fixtures and a high-efficiency gas-forced-air heating system round out just some of the highlights of all Madison homes, no matter what floorplan. The location is a huge attraction for many of the families purchasing Madison homes, Hoyt notes. “You’re so close to everything here. Everything is handy,” he says. Local parks, the Newton Community Rec Centre, the Newton Arena and the Tong Louie YMCA are all nearby, along with a family golf centre. The shops, businesses and recreation offered in South Surrey and White Rock – not to mention Crescent Beach, White Rock Beach, Blackie Spit, Mud Bay, South Surrey Athletic Park and the Serpentine Wildlife Management area – are also close (about a 10 minute drive). Homes are priced starting in the $300,000s. Visit www.madisonhome.ca for more information.

Allison talks social media at U40 event TRICIA LESLIE
David Allison remembers when he was the boss who banned Facebook in the workplace. But he – like many others – soon realized it was futile to fight the evolution of social media and other Internet tools, and embraced the online revolution. “Now, in the Monday morning meetings, you get in trouble if you’re not tweeting enough,” he said to a group of young professionals at Friday’s Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association “I think we’re U40 mentorship breakfast. “I remember when we got at a time our first fax machine at work now that is ... but the way people tell stobigger than the Gutenberg ries is changing. I think video is the new text.” Press or the Allison, who is president Internet. I and co-founder of Braun/ think we’re on Allison Inc. – a Vancouverthe edge of a based real estate development cliff here.” branding and communications company – said that in this day and age of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and QR codes, it is that much easier to be findable, which is crucial for any business’s success. While Allison admitted it can be hard to limit the time spent online to update social media, he added with focus, it can be done. “I probably spend 30 minutes a day, at most. It doesn’t take as long as you think,” he said. The key to using social media is not necessarily to promote a business or a development or sales, Allison noted. “The goal with social media should always
Braun/Allison president and co-founder David Allison speaks at a Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association U40 (under-40) mentorship breakfast at the Vancouver Club. Martin Knowles photos
be, ‘How can I make my customers’ lives better?” he said. “Just start talking. And be excited. Be passionate. If you own a bike store, don’t be passionate about bikes. Be passionate about biking. Build a movement and look at (social media) as a tool.” Braun, who earned a degree in journalism, has been in the business of providing strategic and creative services since the early 1980s, and has worked throughout Canada, from Winnipeg to Calgary. He started his own company in 1992 and, after 12 years as a consultant working for the
largest advertising and marketing firms in Western Canada, Allison joined forces with Marcus Braun in January 2005 to form Braun/ Allison Inc. Allison said he loves waking up every day to do a job he loves, and encouraged everyone to do the same; find a career they can be enthusiastic about, and let that excitement show in all forms of social media. He noted the Gutenberg Press revolutionized how people were able to share information in the 1400s, then the Internet did the same thing upon its inception. “I think we’re at a time now that is bigger
than the Gutenberg Press or the Internet. I think we’re on the edge of a cliff here,” Allison said. The old method for business was for company bigwigs to sit around a conference table, decide what they should tell people to buy, then purchase a newspaper ad telling them to buy that product. Today – especially since consumers are much more educated than ever before, thanks to the Internet – companies are having conversations with the consumer, instead of lecturing them and telling them what to do. “Now, companies are listening to what people are saying they want,” Allison said. “It’s no longer, ‘How do I make a buck?’ Now, it’s ‘How do I make a buck and make peoples’ better?’” As for advertising, Allison emphasized that “you’ve got to do both” print and online, and noted a recent Ipsos-Reid poll shows newspaper ads are “by far, still number one” as to where people will look for real estate-related information. The only thing that’s changed is the content in the ads, he said. In the ‘old days’ the newspaper ad would be chock-full of all the information the reader might need. “Now, all you’re trying to do is get them to go to your website,” he said.
