NASCAR in North Surrey? King George Boulevard would be transformed into race route by Kevin Diakiw A GROUP Is looking to bring Canadian NASCAR racing to Surrey. Ryan O’Connor, president of the Children’s Charities Racing Society, told The Leader Wednesday he’s aiming to bring the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series to Surrey in the next couple of years. “We’ve been in discussions for three to six months as an organizing group, trying to figure out how we can approach this,” O’Connor said. The plan is to use King George Boulevard from 104 Avenue to 100 Avenue as the straightaway for the high-powered stock cars. Two options exist from there. The course could veer west, around the back side of the City Central tower, or go east, through the commercial and residential areas of Guildford. O’Connor said there are pros and cons to each route.

Jamie Moniz and her neighbours are fed up with the cigarette smoke that wafts into their homes from the bus stop in the 6700 block of 194 Street.
Clayton homes smoked out Surrey puts bus stop too close to dwellings; smoking bylaw being broken by Kevin Diakiw THE CITY has placed a bus stop so close to
An example of the stock cars used in NASCAR Canadian Tire Series races.
some homes in the Clayton area that people smoking while waiting for transit are in contravention of Surrey’s new smoking bylaw. City staff are now puzzled as to what to do about the problem. A year ago, Sophia D’Amato purchased a home in the 6700 block 194 Street. All was well until
this year, when the city installed a bus stop in front of her home. People waiting there, who typically smoke before getting on the bus, are sending clouds of cigarette smoke into D’Amato’s and her neighbours’ homes. Last year, Surrey passed a bylaw requiring people refrain from smoking within 7.5 metres from a door or window. The bus stop is within 4.8 metres from the
closest dwelling. Adding to that problem, when it’s raining, people waiting for the bus often seek shelter on the porches of D’Amato and her neighbour Jamie Moniz. Both women have young children and are infuriated with the frequent second-hand smoke and periodic visits from strangers looking for shelter.

by Sheila Reynolds e had to hurt people before they hurt him, to prove who he was. He got high from smashing people’s facing in. John was 14 years old when he first started smoking drugs, 15 when he joined a gang, and was kicked out of five schools by the time he was 16. By age 27, married with a baby boy, he was lured into working for the local gang kingpin. The money and power was worth the danger and fear, he thought. Indeed, he gained power, rising through the gangster ranks. Always looking over his shoulder, he constantly feared for his life and those of his wife and young son. True fear, he learned, was the sound of a bullet whistling past his head. John is the main character in Let Me Up, a gritty play presented to students Surrey’s Queen Elizabeth Secondary last week. But the main character and his drug-fuelled, violent, frightening journey isn’t entirely fictional. The drama is based on the life of Joe Calendino, a former full-patch member of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club. Like John in the play, Calendino was on top of the gang world, trafficking drugs, raking in big bucks and living the high life. Until his so-called friends turfed him. He got deep into drugs himself, snorting cocaine, furthering alienating his family and finally hitting bottom. Crackaddicted and hovering at a gaunt 140 pounds, Calendino was killing himself. It was then Const. Kevin Torvik came into his life. A member of the Vancouver Police Department, it certainly wasn’t the first time the two men had met. With Torvik’s work in gang and drug units, he had crossed paths with law-scoffing Calendino before. But they also had something else in common: they had both attended Templeton Secondary in Vancouver. It was that connection that made the difference. Torvik saw him not just as a criminal, but as a guy he went to school with. And when Calendino decided to clean up and turn his life around, his former classmate was there to help with the difficult journey. After a painful drug withdrawal and rehabilitation process, the recovering addict returned to his old high school, determined to help youth make better choices than he had. Closely supervised, he began working with his former drama teacher and some of the school’s boys, mentoring them and giving advice.

NOW Former gangster uses his experiences to prevent Surrey youth from going down the wrong path EVAN SEAL / THE LEADER
Joe Calendino turned his back on drugs and violence. He’s now helping others choose a healthy lifestyle.
That was nearly four years ago. Today, Calendino works with several schools in the Lower Mainland, including in Surrey. He’s been connected with kids at Queen Elizabeth for three years and for the past year, has been working with boys at Kwantlen Park Secondary and the Newton Learning Centre. He targets not just at-risk teens, but all kids, from straight-A students to those already involved with drugs and crime. “We identify with all youth. We’re finding that the more kids we can get involved... the better off they will all be,” the pony-tailed Calendino says.
The play Let Me Up has now been presented in several schools – and the former gangster is always there with Torvik to talk to students and answer questions afterwards. “You need to identify when you come to that fork in the road,” Calendino told the Grade 9 students at QE last week, “and take the right road.” When someone asks what the scariest moment in his life was, he hesitates, obviously unable to pin his answer to just one moment in his violence-riddled past. “Where I’ve been, I’ve seen the devil. I’ve
walked with the devil.” As the high school presentation wraps up, he calls members of his Yo Bro youth group to the stage. It’s a cluster of young men varying in age, size, and ethnicity. Calendino looks at them proudly, getting emotional as he motions toward the teens. He’s got a bigger gang now than he ever had when he was involved with drugs and crime, he says. “I’d much rather have these guys watching my back than anyone in my past.” email@example.com
SkyTrain workers vote to strike No immediate action as talks continue by Jeff Nagel SKYTRAIN WORKERS have voted 96 per cent in favour of strike action if necessary to back their union’s demands in contract talks with TransLink. Gerry Cunningham, president of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) local 7000, said no job action is planned and he’s hopeful a deal can be reached without disrupting rapid transit service. “It’s too early for that kind of stuff,” he said. “We don’t want to inconvenience the thousands of commuters who rely daily on the services we provide.” A new round of mediated talks are slated to begin Feb. 22 with the assistance of mediator Grant McArthur. CUPE represents 530 members who work on the SkyTrain Expo
and Millennium Lines, including attendants, control room operators, administrative staff and other workers who maintain trains, tracks and stations. The union’s current contract with TransLink’s SkyTrain subsidiary, B.C. Rapid Transit Co., expired last Aug. 31 and bargaining has been underway since then. SkyTrain management tabled a final offer that was rejected by CUPE’s bargaining committee, which then asked members for a strike mandate. B.C. Rapid Transit spokesperson Jennifer Siddon would not discuss the company’s response in the event of a walkout, saying management are looking forward to mediation. “A strike vote is a regular part of the negotiations process,” she said. “It’s business as usual for our staff and our customers.” firstname.lastname@example.org

City: Working on a solution
“I wouldn’t have spent my life savings on this house knowing that bus stop would be outside,” said Moniz. “I didn’t pay almost $600,000 for somebody to sit on my porch.” All that smoke wafts into the area, exposing her young children to second-hand smoke. Enforcing the city’s smoking bylaw should be a given, Moniz said, but she isn’t optimistic. “Have you ever tried to get Surrey bylaw to come out for anything? It takes 24 hours. They’re
going to catch people how?” Jaime Boen, Surrey’s manager of transportation, said staff are currently working on a solution to the problem. He noted that it would be unfeasible to have a bylaw officer posted at the bus stop 24-7, and said Coast Mountain Bus Company has said no to moving the bus stop somewhere else. The city has offered the people living in the three homes most affected $1,700 to build a fence or plant a hedge, the latter of which
might reduce the amount of smoke somewhat, according to Boen. The two women declined the offer. “We are looking into the smoking issue because they pointed out correctly that it’s within 7.5 metres of their door,” Boen said, confirming smoking there would be in violation of Surrey’s bylaw. “I’m hoping to find a solution... but as of yet, I don’t have an answer,” Boen told The Leader this week. email@example.com

Community event held in teen’s honour Registration starts today for fundraiser Black Press FRIENDS OF Laura Szendrei will be holding a fundraiser in her memory this
April. Fifteen-year-old Szendrei was killed in a daylight attack in Mackie Park on Sept. 25 last year. The attacker has not yet been found. Delta Police Sgt. Sharlene Brooks said the case remains a priority and that there are no further developments to report. A group called the Laura Szendrei Memorial Scholarship Foundation is holding a the Laura Szendrei 5 & 10 K Walk, Run and Roll, taking place at Burnsview Secondary School in North Delta on Sunday, April 10 this year. Money raised from the event will go into the newly formed Laura Szendrei Memorial Scholarship Foundation Society. Each year the Society will present two sport scholarships to students from Delta Secondary Schools. “This initiative will serve as a key part of a broader campaign to support the families of innocent victims of violent crime,” the event website says. “We are all aware of individuals and families around us that have suffered through the loss of a loved one in a senseless act of violence and we are committed to supporting those who want to seek change.” Registration for the event begins today (Friday, Feb. 18) at Scottsdale Mall, 7031 120 St., by the Save-On-Foods.

NASCAR: Group is eyeing race for 2012 From page 1 “What are the main conflicts of the zones, in terms of traffic, people, fire and rescue, transit and all those other things?” O’Connor said. He said the difference between the major NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing) events, such as those held in Las Vegas, and the Canadian Tire series, is similar to the difference between major and minor league baseball. O’Connor and his partners met with the Downtown Surrey Business Improvement Association (DSBIA) on Tuesday to discuss the plan. “It’s going to impact different businesses in a different way,” DSBIA Executive Director Elizabeth Model told The Leader. “Everyone will be unique.” The group pitching the idea has to seek approval from individual businesses in the area over the
coming months. O’Connor has spoken to Surrey staff, but not city council as of yet. He noted he has early support from the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series about his aim to start an event in Surrey. “Yes, they’ve indicated an interest in it, and they want to see our business plans,” O’Connor said. “We have to show all parties, from the city to NASCAR to the sponsors... that this is a viable event.” That has to be done on three platforms, he said. They include; the economic benefit to the community and the business model for financing the race; the environmental sustainability of the event; and the social contribution. The latter, he said, will include donations to charity as part of the event. The group wants the flags to drop in July 2012, but it remains flexible regarding the timeline. firstname.lastname@example.org

How about a course in Problem Solving 101? RE: CITY adding to crowded schools.
I’m sorry but I have to rant. Seriously? The city is adding to overcrowded schools? I am just a mom/volunteer of two girls in the school system – what do I know? But the answers seem perfectly clear to me. Surrey is the only district that keeps growing every year but capital funding from the education ministry has stopped for new schools. The answer is easy: fund the only district that continues to grow. But it’s not that simple is it? The ministry says yes, Surrey you are growing but your schools are not at capacity – in fact there THE DECISION to create an
alternate schedule for students at Earl Marriott and Lord Tweedsmuir is a short-sighted and pathetic attempted to solve a problem ignored for far too long. With portables permanently camped out on schools across the city and with the number of portables increasing every year, who would be surprised to hear that space for Surrey students has not only reached capacity but also far exceeded its capacity? It is obvious to anyone driving by any school in Surrey that our schools are busting at their seams. The Surrey School District has managed to plan for, budget for, and ultimately build a state-of-the-art administration building to comfortably and stylishly work in. Why must my daughter work from a humid disgusting portable in Grade 5 and be faced with going to a high school that has even less room for her? Is the school board really blaming Santa for not dropping “any new schools down the chimney?” Was the school board really not paying attention to the growth in the community or, was the district too busy meeting their own needs for swanky office space? Sadly, the future of education in Surrey looks even bleaker. With no hope or promise of new schools any time soon, the district is not only altering school hours to create shifts for class time but is also considering online courses for high school students so they can take classes from home and free up more space. Do we really want to socially disconnect our kids from their community, their peers, and from their teachers? Instead, why not have the administrators work from home and fill up their new offices with classrooms for actual Surrey students? What exactly are we putting in to the education of our kids and what are we going to get out of it?
Trustees should be fighting harder for Surrey
are some schools with very few students, so if you want capital funding, start closing the half-empty schools, reorganize, and we will start funding you when you can really show you are overcrowded. All fine on paper, but does closing a half-empty school really make a difference when it comes to saving money? I think not. It is a constant game of finger pointing – the district says the province won’t fund schools, the province says the district needs to use the money better, and around and around it goes. It never gets better, it never changes, and worst of all our kids pay the price. How would it be if the city partnered with the
school district when considering approving major developments? Would it work if they collaborated and said, “Hey this school has lots of space, let put this new complex in that catchment.” This may even solve the problem the district is facing with high schools having to stay open longer. If the ministry wants to affect real change, they will add mandatory courses to all elementary schools now that teach Problem Solving 101 and Cooperation 101, instead of passing on the legacy of pass the buck.

Too many negatives RE: EXTENDED school hours at Earl
Marriott and Lord Tweedsmuir secondaries. There are many concerns regard-
ing the idea of extending the school day for students: • Having 200-300 students not scheduled each block will result in hallway noise, supervision problems and be a significant distraction to the students in class. • The school day will be extended for families with more than one child attending that are on two different schedules. Families will have to be up earlier and delayed getting to work at the beginning of the day to
WHY DO we have an elected school board if they only
act as apologists for the provincial education ministry? It sounds good that they are looking for consensus, but who is looking out for Surrey? Education budgets have not kept up to inflation, yet our school board is silent, or only offers up a whimper. When faced with cuts and rollbacks of public education, we only hear about opposition from the Vancouver Board of Education. Our Surrey school trustees should be advocates for public schools, not representatives of the provincial government. When class size limits were first negotiated in Surrey, district-wide averages were above those same limits. We have lost much of our adult continuing education programs in the district. We are increasingly locked
accommodate two different start times. They will also have to be home earlier from work at the end of the day in order to be there for their children on the early schedule. • Students leaving the property during their unscheduled block will create more problems. Students skipping class to be with their friends who have a “spare” block will increase. Residential and local business complaints will increase. With different bell schedules the school sense of community will be fragmented. School safety and sense of community will deteriorate. • Intramurals will not be able to run at lunch, as the gyms will be used to teach gym classes. Grade 10-12 team practices and activities likely can’t start until after the fifth period is over. This will be approximately one-and-a-half hours after the Grades 10-12 students have been dismissed. Once students are done for the day getting them back to the school will be difficult. Extracurricular programs will be affected and scheduling will be challenging. • After-school teacher support will be minimized with some teachers finishing their day early and likely leaving while others will not be available because they are on the late shift. • It will be necessary to have twice as many buses as present in order to have the same service. What is the additional cost for doubling this service? • Research on adolescent sleep indicates that school already starts too early and moving to an extended day would make it even worse for the students on the “early” shift. It is clear that the disadvantages far outweigh the advantages with respect to an extended day. Parents need to get involved now if they wish to influence the implementation of this proposed plan. M. Reynolds, Surrey
out of school grounds and facilities. We have growing numbers of students who face years in portables. We should have twice the number of post-secondary seats than we do. Students pay more tuition than corporations pay tax. We need school trustees to stand up for Surrey students and their parents. If trustees have lost their willingness to fight to improve and enhance public education, they should step down. The trustees’ call for political peace is very self-serving and undemocratic. The public should be forgiven when they believe politicians are all the same – only interested in their own re-election. Pat O’Connor Surrey
Fair fares a priority MANY OF our coastal
communities have relied upon ferries for decades, and it is important to ensure that the services BC Ferries provides remain efficient, and that fares for the travelling public are reasonable. I want to be clear no changes have been approved for price caps or service levels for the next performance term that begins in 2012. The B.C. Ferry Commissioner is in the process of setting the preliminary price caps for 2012 through 2016. That process requires that BC Ferries submit information such as its operational costs, capital investment plans and ridership levels to the independent ferry commissioner. The commissioner will then conduct an extensive review of that material before making a preliminary ruling on price caps by March 31. After the determination of the preliminary price cap has been made, the public will have an opportunity to review the ferry commissioner’s decision and provide feedback. As part of that process, government will also review the information, including the current subsidy provided to BC Ferries. A final decision on price caps for 2012-2016 will not be made until Sept. 30, 2011. However, I can assure British Columbians that this government is committed to maintaining a ferry service that provides efficient and reliable service for the public. Since 2001, the total contribution by taxpayers to BC Ferries is over $1 billion. The new model for BC Ferries established by our government in 2003 has been a success. Customer satisfaction is at an all-time high of 91 per cent, compared to 82 per cent in 2003. Under the new model, on-time performance has increased, new and improved vessels have been brought in and terminals have been upgraded. Shirley Bond B.C. Minister of Transportation

Metro wants to reform diesel machines Emissions cited as signiﬁcant source of cancer in region by Jeff Nagel METRO Vancouver is
poised to slap expensive fees on the dirtiest dieselburning heavy equipment to spur owners to clean up their machines and reduce toxic air emissions linked to cancer and other diseases. The rules for off-road engines will be the first of their kind in Canada if approved by the Metro board at the end of this month and are being hailed as a major new
step to improving air quality and the health of local residents. Older machines with the most polluting Tier 0 engines – typically excavators, backhoes, forklifts and loaders with pre-1996 engines – will be dinged annual fees starting in 2012. Fees will start at $4 per horsepower and climb to $20 by 2017, so a 120horse excavator would pay $480 a year at first and eventually $2,400 a year if it isn’t retrofitted,
re-powered or retired. Tier 1 engines will pay the same fees, but they won’t start to kick in until 2014, while cleaner Tier 2 to 4 engines are exempt. “We’re just targeting the dirty engines,” said Ray Robb, Metro’s district director of air quality “If you have a clean engine or moderately clean engine, we’re hoping this regulation will be mostly invisible for you.” Besides the stick of
higher fees, Metro will offer a carrot to clean up. Operators who upgrade a machine to a higher standard will be refunded 80 per cent of the fees paid in the previous three years. Advocates say that could make a big difference because retrofitting an engine with a filter can cut 95 per cent of the particulate spewed out and a new diesel engine releases just one per cent as much particulate as an old one.
Vancouver Coastal Health chief medical health officer Dr. Patricia Daly cited findings that 526 cancers will develop in a population of one million Metro Vancouver residents over their lifetime as a result of air pollution. Two thirds of those cancers, she said, are from diesel emissions. “It is by far our biggest contributor to our lifetime cancer risk from air pollution in our region,” Daly told Metro’s

Man guilty of sex assault on girl Young victim, family pleased with conviction by Sheila Reynolds THE LITTLE GIRL, flanked by her parents and a family friend, smiled when the judge read the guilty verdict Tuesday afternoon. Kyle Berkson, the man accused of sneaking into the her bedroom when she was nine years old and sexually assaulting her, was found guilty of breaking and entering with intent to commit sexual assault with a weapon, invitation to sexual touching, sexual interference and uttering threats. Outside Surrey Provincial Court, the now-10-year-old girl, who cannot be identified under court order, said she was “glad” Berkson had been convicted. Her grandmother, who has been caring for the girl since she was a baby and whom she calls Mom, said she hoped no other family would have to go through anything similar. “A child should have the right to sleep in their own home,” she said, lauding the girl for being brave and taking the stand during the trial.

IT WAS INSPIRED by the 2008 murder of a local young woman, but organizers of an upcoming anti-bullying forum in North Delta hope the event will yield some long-term, effective solutions to community violence. The forum, called Take a Stand/Lend a Hand, will take place in North Delta on Feb. 23, the same day as Pink Shirt Day – an annual national effort to raise awareness about bullying. The Delta forum, hosted by Delta-North MLA Guy Gentner, Newton-North Delta MP Sukh Dhaliwal and Delta Mayor Lois Jackson, was initially sparked by a conversation the three politicians had with Maureen Chatham, whose daughter Melissa, 24, was beaten to death by her boyfriend two-and-a-half years ago. “After meeting with Mrs. Chatham, we had a discussion about what we as politicians could be doing in our community to help victims of violence. We discussed a forum on domes-
tic violence, but then decided and solutions sought. that the symptoms of violence “Finding a way to come go much further than that,” said together municipally, provinGentner. “Violence permeates cially and federally to help meet our society in a variety of ways; the need and to show unity of different types of bullying are this issue will only help our compart of what could munity.

was on fire and a passenger was screaming for help. Two bystanders were trying to pull the man out of the passenger’s side window of the van, but his seatbelt was holding his legs, preventing the men from removing him from the vehicle. The heat from the fire was becoming unbearable, and the passenger pleaded with would-be rescuers, saying his legs were being burned. Parry leaned into the van and attempted to find the buckle to the seatbelt. The smoke was too heavy to see, and as the
heat intensified, Parry knew it may only be a matter of time before the van exploded. Parry ran back to his truck to get a knife and some heavy gloves to cut the man free. By the time he got back,
the seatbelt had come loose. He leaned into the van, pushing the pas-
senger out of the window while the other two bystanders pulled. After the man was free, Parry helped other emergency personnel in putting out the fire and covering up the other people who had perished in the accident. Parry suffered some smoke inhalation, but nothing more serious. His experience early last year is why Parry was given the Chief Constable Commendation, during the recent Delta Police Awards annual ceremony. In another incident, Const. Kevin Dueck saw two men with bandanas on their faces and hoodies over their heads going into a 7-Eleven on April 5, 2010. One of the men was carrying a pump action shotgun. With his gun drawn,
Dueck approached the men before they entered the convenience store. The man with the shotgun fled on foot, while the other gave up. Dueck apprehended the man who stayed, and found a replica handgun in his possession. He called in the location and identification of the man who fled on foot, who was later arrested. Dueck also received Chief Constable Commendation. Several other Delta Police officers were recognized, not only for their individual actions, but for their success as teams in specific investigations.

Explore history for free the shops at
No admission cost at Surrey Museum for 2011 by Colin Oswin SURREY’S HISTORY is free for the
taking this year. Ahead of the launch of its 2011 season, the Surrey Museum wants to remind residents that admission to the facility will be completely free for the entire year. The year will begin with exhibits on Graduation Through the Ages, which tracks the changes surrounding the ritual of leaving high school over the past 100 years, as well as an exploration of India’s Bhangra music. Both exhibits opened on Feb. 8. Ursula Maxwell-Lewis,
Friends of the Surrey Museum and Archives Society President, says offering free admission felt like the right thing to do for the community. She adds that the initiative will make it more comfortable for people to drop in and explore the city’s history. “Surrey has a great history, and this is one avenue to allow us to tell it,” she said. Maxwell-Lewis says local museums are important because history can provide an anchor for people in the community, giving them context, pride and, above all, roots in the area. History can also help newcomers

Party calls for tighter immigration controls

tage Party of Canada (CHP) released an immigration policy calling for tighter eligibility controls for immigrants – particularly those coming from Muslim countries and cultures that have embraced radical Islamic beliefs. In an open letter to South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale MP Russ Hiebert, released last week, Mike Schouten, CHP candidate in the riding, has called for a tougher government position on immigrants whose beliefs are inimical to the Canadian Constitution and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. But Hiebert said he believes that safeguards on human rights – including the rights and responsibilities of immigrants – are inherent in the Canadian system and do not require
Christian Heritage Party candidate Mike Schouten (left) is criticizing Conservative MP Russ Hiebert over immigration policy. further underlining. “We have religious freedom in Canada,” he said. “Everyone is free to practise the religion of their choice, but at the same time, regardless of their country of origin, every Canadian is expected to obey the laws of Canada – full stop.” In his earlier statement, Schouten said it is “naive to think that all cultures are compatible with Canadian values” – quoting, as an example, a dictate from the most
conservative school of the Sharia (Islamic religious code) that “those who renounce Islam be put to death by the faithful.” “It’s never just, never lawful in Canada for a group to abridge the rights and freedoms of any other Canadian, regardless of their current or former relationship to that group,” he said. Noting Hiebert’s position as a member of the International Human Rights subcommittee,
Schouten said the MP has “an obligation to uphold the rights of all people, including immigrants to Canada.” “I’m calling on Mr. Hiebert to show some leadership here,” Schouten said. “Canada is in a unique position here – we can observe what has been happening in Europe and we still have the opportunity to take action. “It’s important to note that Mr. Hiebert is involved in the aspect of human rights that includes our soldiers fighting in Afghanistan so that Afghans have their rights. What about ensuring that human rights are practised in our own country?” But Hiebert said human-rights issues within Canada come under the purview of the Justice and Human Rights Committee – of which he is not a member. email@example.com

Investigation ordered into CT scans Cancer may have gone untreated in some patients by Jeff Nagel SEVERAL B.C. patients
may have cancer that went undetected because two radiologists who were either unqualified or inexpe-
rienced misinterpreted the results of CT scans performed at hospitals in Abbotsford and Powell River last year. Health minister Colin Hansen has ordered an investigation into the
cases of misdiagnosis to determine how the radiology physicians in question were allowed to read the scans. Fraser Health Authority CEO Dr. Nigel Murray said
there may be untreated cancers in some of the 10 patients scanned at Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre where misinterpreted scans may have contributed to patients
receiving incorrect treatment. “They could include missed cancers,” Murray said. “Approximately three or four could be in that category.” False positives
included one case where the radiologist wrongly identified a pulmonary embolism in the lungs of an Abbotsford patient, but Murray said the patient’s doctor did not rely entirely on the

scan result and treated on the basis of other evidence as well. “At this time we believe there was no inappropriate treatment given due to false positives.” The locum radiologist in question performed a total of 170 CT scan interpretations in the eastern Fraser Valley between mid-August and mid-September 2010, most at Abbotsford but about a dozen in Chilliwack, where no discrepancies were found. “We are still in the process of contacting all the patients individually,” Murray said. “All of their doctors have been contacted and are taking the appropriate actions.” One of the 10 patients where scan interpretation problems were flagged has since died, a case Murray said is under investigation but could be due to natural causes. Fraser Health and the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority are notifying a total of 3,400 patients who may have been affected by the work of the two radiologists. The Powell River radiologist worked there full time from April to October 2010 and was not qualified to read CT scans. The Abbotsford radiologist worked there temporarily for a month and had been involved in a similar incident of analyzing scans in the Cranbrook area last year. On Monday, the B.C. government announced it is investigating its third incident of problems with diagnostic medical imaging, this time at a hospital in Comox. An unnamed radiologist at St. Joseph’s General Hospital has had his privileges to read CT scans suspended after “significant errors” were discovered, the health ministry said. The diagnostic scans are used to detect cancer and heart conditions. The Comox doctor has had credentials to read CT scans for 30 years. He has surrendered his hospital privileges at St. Joseph’s while the investigation is conducted. The locum radiologist at Abbotsford was See SCANS / Page 19

Scans: ‘The ball was dropped’ From page 18 from out of province, but was professionally credentialed and licensed in B.C., however the health authority was alerted in mid-December to performance concerns about his work, triggering an investigation. Besides potential cancers, the scans may have involved scans of organs or heart conditions, Vancouver Coastal officials said. There were a total of 900 cases in Powell River where suspect scan interpretations were reinterpreted by qualified radiologists and then adjudicated again by another group of doctors on Vancouver Island. A total of 130 of those cases were found to require further checks with patients. The Powell River radiologist also handled obstetrical ultrasound scans – involving 2,300 pregnant women, or two-thirds of the total cases. In most of those cases the babies have already been born. Neither of the two radiologists are now practising in B.C., although one may be working in Ontario. Dr. David Ostrow, CEO of Vancouver Coastal, said he is also worried some cancers went undetected due to the faulty readings at Powell River. “It absolutely should not have occurred,” he said, adding he was “deeply troubled” that procedures of the health authorities and the
Patients with concerns over their CT scans can contact the Fraser Health Authority. B.C. College of Physicians and Surgeons were ineffective. “We do have a screening process and that screening process failed,” Ostrow said. “The ball was dropped in a whole bunch of places.” Vancouver Coastal officials knew about the suspect scan results since last October but did not notify the health ministry until Feb. 4. Hansen said he only learned of the Fraser Health incident Thursday (Feb. 10), several weeks after it was uncovered. The CEOs said they had to perform due diligence before telling Victoria. “I want to apologize for the stress and any new anxiety this may cause,” Hansen said. “The incidents raise important questions that need to be answered as quickly as possible so all British Columbians can
have confidence in their health care system.” Hansen has appointed B.C. Patient Safety and Quality Council chair Dr. Doug Cochrane to conduct a two-part investigation of the incidents and report publicly. Cochrane is charged with ensuring within 30 days that all radiologists now working in B.C. are correctly credentialed. He’s also been given six months to examine all aspects of the incidents and make recommendations to ensure they are never repeated. NDP critic Adrian Dix said the fact it took the health authorities months to notify government of the incidents reflects a serious problem of accountability. “They appeared more concerned, it appears, with insulating the government than ensuring there’s accountability for what goes on,” Dix said. “Whenever that happens, it shakes public trust.” Fraser Health says all 170 patients affected in the Fraser Valley will receive a registered letter and the 10 patients or families with the most urgent concerns have or will be directly contacted. Patients with concerns can contact the Fraser Health Patient Care Quality Office at 1-877880-8823 or email pcqoffice@ fraserhealth.ca. — with files from Tom Fletcher email@example.com

Live in Polygon Homes' Dayanee Springs community in Coquitlam
Bridges: built to suit every lifestyle
Branch of BC housing
GVHBA’S 17TH ANNUAL
Living in an affordable new home situated on a stunning mountainside, surrounded by natural beauty and amazing views while remaining close to all the city's amenities, may seem an impossibility in Metro Vancouver. Yet the impossible is possible at Polygon Homes' Bridges: new, Whistler-inspired apartment residences situated at the base of Coquitlam's Westwood Plateau. Bridges is also located within the master-planned community of Dayanee Springs, which includes membership to the 7,500-square-foot Timbers Club, an amenities complex that offers resort-style features and services. The condo homes are move-in ready and offered in one-, two- and three-bedroom floorplans ranging from 675 sq. ft. to 1,290 sq. ft. "The vision for Dayanee Springs has really come to life as the community nears the end of its buildout and homeowners are taking full advantage of the Timbers Club and the many other benefits to living in a master-planned community," says Polygon's senior vice-president of sales and marketing Ralph Archibald. "For many, Bridges is seen as the crowning jewel as its location within Dayanee Springs offers residents either an expansive view over Town Centre Park, or a quiet location next to the calming waters of HoyCreek, all just steps from the Timbers Club, where
Polygon Homes' Bridges offers brand-new Coquitlam homes in a desirable Westwood Plateau location. Dave Delnea photos
residents enjoy impressive amenities like the pool, spa, sauna and fitness room and some practical amenities like the specialty dog-grooming room," Archibald says. Outside, natural timber and rugged stone accents, along with cedar shingles, give the homes an alpine village feel. Inside, EnergyStar stainless steel appliances and granite countertops grace the kitchens, while ensuite bathrooms have marble counters. Bridges residents are within walking distance to every amenity, from schools to an adventurous hike on one of many local trails; from a travelling art show at the Evergreen Cultural Centre to a day of shopping at Coquitlam Centre. Two-bedroom homes start from $319,900. Visit www.polyhomes.com for more information.

Medal haul for Surrey gymnasts SGS excels at Omega meet in Coquitlam by Rick Kupchuk MEMBERS OF the Surrey Gymnastics Society combined for five all around medals at the Omega Invitational girls meet in Coquitlam Feb. 5-6. Lily Rio, 11, of
South Surrey won the all around gold medal in the Level 2 Tyro category. Rio posted the top score on vault, and was second on bars and beam. Also collecting medals in Level 2
Tyro competition were Luci Kask, 11, and Alexandria Godlewski, 10, of Surrey. Kask won a gold medal on beam and added a bronze on bars on her way to the all around bronze
Orcas dethroned as champions Panorama Ridge defeats Elgin Park by Rick Kupchuk A FIVE-YEAR run as
division champions has ended for the Elgin Park Orcas. The Panorama Ridge Thunder upended the Orcas 55-47 in the championship game of the Fraser Valley West Senior AAA girls high school basketball playoffs Saturday night at Elgin Park Secondary. The Orcas finished first in league play, having outscored Panorama Ridge in the two league games that were split by the two Surrey rivals. The Thunder jumped out to a quick 6-0 lead in the championship game, and didnâ€™t allow the Orcas to get closer than two points the rest of the way. Jasmine Sidhu with 20 points led the offensive effort, while Kajal Parmar contributed with three treys in the final three minutes to put the game out of reach. Also contributing were Jasmine Grewal with six steals, 10 points and five rebounds, Anika Constantinescu with eight blocked shots and 18 rebounds, and Tessa Jansen with a double double on 10 points and 10 rebounds. Thunder coach John Sowerby credited the defensive work of three players in stopping Elgin Parkâ€™s top offensive threat. â€œWe knew we had to shut (Stacey) Graham down, so we told Parmar to play tight on her and make her dribble the ball before she shoots,â€? he said, noting Graham was held to 10 points. â€œParmar spent most of the first half in foul trouble so Tanvir Pannu and Amlique Boprai took turns frustrating her.â€? The Thunder defeated the Delta Pacers 60â€“39 in a semifinal game Friday.
Parmar had 28 points Jasmine added 16. Constantinescu was a defen-
sive standout, blocking seven shots and pulling down 16 rebounds.

Inside Track ...with Dan Jukich For Fraser Downs driver Tyler Remillard it must have seemed like an eternity. But, in fact, it was only a matter of seconds before he was unable to avoid Silver Princess and driver Randy Rutledge in the seventh race on Saturday. You hate to see these things happen at a racetrack but they do. Rutledgeâ€™s horse made a break on the far turn just after the start and fell forward. Remillard tried to steer Red Star Fantasia to the inďŹ eld but clipped the fallen horse and driver, resulting in Remillard catapulting out of the sulky. Remillard landed directly on his upper body and after a night in hospital, it was determined he had a broken collarbone and severely fractured shoulder blade. Rutledge wasnâ€™t seriously injured but did complain of light headiness and will be monitored this week. A relative newcomer to the Downs, Remillard has a small stable of his own and had been working with driver Serge Masse, whoâ€™s still feeling the affects of a spill that he was involved in last June. Just as Remillard had ďŹ lled in for Masse, Serge took the lines in the very next race for one of Tylerâ€™s horses and won in a picture ďŹ nish for his fellow fallen driver. It comes under the heading â€˜teamworkâ€™. Jim Marinoâ€™s experience as a driver came through in Sundayâ€™s $35,000 Miss Valentine. Starting the heavily-favoured Mystic Maiden from the two hole, Marino let the duo of Red Star Dana and Run Way Star duke it out in the early going, then took over the lead just past the opening quarter. Never pressured after that move, Mystic Maiden cruised home to a 2 Â˝ length victory in a ďŹ nal time of 1:55.4. Trainer Justin Currie was non-committal about the future of his superstar 4-year-old mare who has delivered so many thrills to Fraser Downs regulars over the past two years. Friday nightâ€™s feature is the $17,200 Final of the BBS Mirage claiming series with the morning line favourite in a competitive full ďŹ eld being Lil Kim from the Ed Hensley barn. Speaking of Hensley, he found his way to the winnerâ€™s circle eight times last weekend and leads the drivers standings with 85 wins in 271 starts for a 31 per cent winning average. Marino has three wins last Friday and four on Sunday, giving him 67 on the season. Marino, Dave Hudon and Michael Hennessy are gearing themselves for the Western Canadian Driving Championship showdown on Saturday, Feb. 26 at Fraser Downs against drivers from Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Racing resumes this weekend at Fraser Downs on Friday at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday/Sunday at 1:15 p.m. See you there. firstname.lastname@example.org

Surrey’s trio of contests against opposition occupying the bottom five positions in the 14-team league. Mason Webb scored the game’s lone goal, sending a cross into the penalty area that curled into the top corner of the net in the 74th minute. Both sides had several chances to add to the goal total, but the game’s two netminders – including Paul Sheppard of Surrey – took turns making outstanding saves. United improved to 17-3-3 (won-tiedlost), while Coquitlam dropped to 15-5-3. Surrey is at home to the Punjab Hurricanes Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. at Cloverdale Athletic Park, looking for the first of the two wins that could clinch the Premier Division title. The Hurricanes pulled five points clear of a relegation position by rallying from a twogoal deficit to tie West Vancouver 3-3 Saturday evening at Newton Athletic Park. Trailing 2-0, the Hurricanes got one goal back on a tally by
Amar Bains, but early in the second half, West Vancouver restored the two-goal lead. Bains scored his second of the game with three minutes to go, then the Hurricanes tied the contest in injury time on a goal from Pami Birring. At 7-5-11, the Hurricanes are all but assured staying in the Premier Division next season. Akal FC lost a huge opportunity to make up some ground in their bid to avoid relegation, getting blanked 4-0 by the last-place Serbian White Eagles Sunday evening at Newton Athletic Park. At 4-6-12, Akal FC is in 13th place. ICST Pegasus won their 10th game of the season Sunday afternoon at John Oliver Park in Delta, downing Delta United 3-0. Ryan Powell, Azad Palani and Meysam Soltani were credited with the goals, while Andy Singh earned his shutout with several outstanding saves, including one on a penalty. Pegasus is in seventh place at 10-4-9.

Second year for Cassidy’s Craft Campaign Beneﬁts kids at children’s hospital by Sheila Reynolds
EVAN SEAL / THE LEADER
Leonard Wells works on one of two welcome poles being carved at Frank Hurt Secondary on Monday.
Carving out some
IT’S BEEN MORE than a year since Cloverdale’s Cassidy Briggs passed away, but her legacy and spirit remain strong. This week marked the kick off of the 2nd Annual Cassidy’s Craft Campaign at Surrey’s George Greenaway Elementary, where Cassidy attended school. It was Cassidy’s dream to make life better for young patients at B.C. Children’s Hospital. During her many stays, she noticed there was little for kids to do and came up with a plan
cultural understanding Tree of Life project provides a unique and educational opportunity for Surrey kids by Sheila Reynolds
eonard Wells began chipping away at local high schools this week. In fact, over the next several weeks, the Semiahmoo First Nation master carver will be touring five Surrey secondary schools. And with him will be 12 feet of red cedar. Wells is in the process of carving two welcome poles that will eventually grace the entrance of the Surrey School District’s new education centre near 92 Avenue and 140 Street. It’s part of the Tree of Life project, where the cedar logs
being transformed into the poles will be taken from school to school, so students can not only see a carver at work, but also hear from various elders as they share wisdom and stories from their culture. The first stop this week was Frank Hurt Secondary, where teens heard from elders Eddie Pierre from the Katzie Nation and Sto:lo Nation member Daniel Charlie. They spoke of the sacred and vital nature of cedar to native peoples – and the respect the people show the tree and their ancestors. Indeed, there was a ceremony held when the fallen mass of wood was initially removed from the forest floor. And when the poles are finally raised, they will also be honoured with a formal ceremony. Taking a break from hacking and chiseling at the wood, Wells, who apprenticed under renowned Haida artist Robert Davidson before venturing out on his own, explains the current poles will take two-andLeonard Wells a-half to three months to complete. And once the carving is finished, he doesn’t plan on adding much paint. “It’s going to be black with a bit of red and that’s about it,” he says. “When it comes to colouring Salish art ... a lot of the colour comes out of that wood.” The welcome poles will feature one male and one female human figure, both with arms outstretched. “It’s not your traditional totem pole that you’d see anywhere else where there’s animal figures or lots of paint on it,” adds Paula Leon, coordinator for aboriginal support for the school district. The poles will proceed to Fraser Heights, Kwantlen Park, Lord Tweedsmuir and Guildford Park Secondary schools over the next four weeks.
“When it comes to Salish art ... a lot of the colour comes out of that wood.”

Cassidy Briggs to raise money to buy arts and crafts supplies for the hospital. The campaign was launched last year and resulted in a craft area filled with supplies being created at the hospital. Now, the school and her family want to keep Cassidy’s dream alive by donating money to replenish and bolster the kids’ art area. Cassidy was diagnosed with a rare liver cancer before her eighth birthday in 2008 and despite a brave battle, died on Jan. 11 last year. Prior to her death, her beguiling smile and selfless nature rallied her school and the surrounding community to raise thousands of dollars to help her get treatment. Also helping with the craft campaign this year is Michigan author Johnathan Rand, who will be visiting a dozen Surrey schools, beginning with George Greenaway Elementary next week. This year’s campaign runs until March 2. Donations can be made directly to B.C. Children’s Hospital Cassidy’s Craft Campaign, or contact George Greenaway Elementary at 604-576-1136 for more information.

Array of high school art on exhibit Last weekend to catch show at Guildford Town Centre MORE THAN 100 pieces of art created by Surrey high school
students are currently on display at Guildford Town Centre. Now in its fifth year, the 12-school show is a departure from past years, as the competition aspect of the event has given way to showcasing more classroom-based exploration of art themes and techniques. Among the 111 artworks, visitors will find not only drawings and paintings done by local teens, but digital art, sculptures, etchings and prints. Exhibiting high schools include Earl Marriott, Fleetwood Park, Frank Hurt, Fraser Heights, Guildford Park, Johnston Heights, Kwantlen Park, L.A. Matheson, Princess Margaret, Queen Elizabeth, Sullivan Heights and Surrey Connect. Guildford Park Secondary teacher Myra Morgan’s students have produced surrealist and collage artworks, many showing development of personal imagery and new art skills. Grade 12 student Justin Soluk says “Ms. Morgan convinced me to try some different medium like acrylic paint.
It brought me to a whole other level of understanding art and the techniques you need to use when painting.” Fraser Heights Secondary teacher Norma Nickel also encouraged her students to experiment with various themes and materials, while Johnston Heights Secondary teacher Liz Libera’s Grade 10 students examined cubism. Queen Elizabeth Secondary teacher Brian Tattam’s media arts students’ took more of a whimsical path producing human-lion digital art portraits, while Sullivan Heights teacher Marc Pelech’s students showcased their digital media and sculpture skills. Work by Kwantlen Park Secondary teacher Peter Egan’s students display some highly skilled 2D and 3D artworks, such as that by student Meaghan Allen, whose heavy textured oil painting on canvas board is in the exhibit. “I love how the colours blended and how it looks like real water,” she says of her piece, entitled Underneath. The show runs until Feb. 20 at the shopping centre, located near 152 Street and 103 Avenue.
“Our Similarities, Differences,” a painting by Grade 12 student Jane Cheng from Johnston Heights Secondary, is one of 111 student works on display.

Stripes: The Mystery Circus
Under the Mango Tree
This delightful spectacle combines physical theatre, cabaret and traditional theatre in a play about a woman who wants to run away and join the circus. Through song, memories and sheer determination, our heroine reveals eight out-of-this-world circus acts in an audition that humorously and touchingly goes awry. Writer/performer Sarah Hayward creates a memorable character who charms the audience with her spunk and spirit.
For many young men, going to a new country is a journey full of hope, promise, and opportunity. But what about the children left behind? Performer/playwright Veenesh Dubois weaves a semi-autobiographical tale about a young girl whose father emigrates to Canada. Letters are their only connection as she waits to joins him. The show has played to packed houses and standing ovations, as the heartfelt themes of love, loss and immigration are explored in a story that touches us all.

Not bogged down THOUGH SHE didn’t win in the end,
Eliza Olson, president of the Burns Bog Conservation Society, was among the top 10 finalists in CBC’s 2010 Champions of Change, a national award that honours Canadian volunteers. Four of the finalists were from B.C. “Biodiversity in all of its forms is vital for our planet, and it was really great to see it represented by the variety of Eliza Olson Canadian volunteers on stage and by the different organizations that they volunteer with,” said Olson. “Two of us were nominated for the environment category, but even so, many of the issues that others were addressing were problems worsened, in some way, because of degraded environments.”
Accounting for experience FORTY-FIVE PROFESSIONAL accountants took time recently
to share with 180 Kwantlen Polytechnic University students what a career in accounting is really like. The Kwantlen Student Accounting Club and the accounting faculty of the Kwantlen School of Business joined forces on to bring real-world experience to students who might consider this career path. Accountants with CMA (Certified Management Accountant), CGA (Certified General Accountant) and CA (Chartered Accountant) designations came from a variety of organizations such as Terasen Gas, Canada Revenue Agency, KPMG Public Accountants and other employers.

The faces of victory and defeat Frank Hurt Secondary was honoured recently for having collected the second-highest amount of food in the city for the Surrey Food Bank during the holiday drive. A second, in-school competition, however, pitted classroom teachers against ofﬁce and support staff to see which group could donate more. The teachers lost, and instructors Vasilis Koutsanikis and Gary Bal had to have their makeup done and wear jerseys of teams they dislike.

Nourishing educations SODEXO CANADA has presented a $100,000 donation to
Kwantlen Polytechnic University in support of financial awards for students. Sodexo’s contribution will support three annual awards for Kwantlen students over the next ten years. The first award, valued at $5,000, will recognize a student pursuing a degree in any area of study at Kwantlen who achieves academic excellence and participates actively in the community. The second award will be offered in the form of a $2,500 bursary, to a student experiencing significant financial need. The third award, valued at $2,500, will be available to a student who demonstrates community involvement and volunteerism. Sodexo is the on-campus food service provider for Kwantlen’s four campuses.
enior thespians are reaching across the generation gap to support young performing arts students at Douglas College. Members of the Society for the Preservation of Vaudeville (also known as The Vaudevillians) recently donated $3,800 to their endowment at Douglas College. The money came from a benefit concert held at the Surrey Arts Centre in November. “One of the most rewarding and satisfying projects of the Vaudevillians is the bursary established six years ago,” said Vaudevillians president Marvyn Shore. “The bursary over that time has built up to about $60,000, and approximately 20 students have benefited thus far.” Surrey resident Doris Carruthers and Pam McKinnon of Delta visited Douglas recently to present the donation to college associate vice-president of External Relations Hazel Postma and the interim dean of Language, Literature and Performing Arts Meg Stainsby. “Our students really appreciate the support from The Vaudevillians and the message they impart, which is that the arts can be a part of everyone’s life, no matter the age or the experience – it’s the joy of performing that counts,” Postma said. The Society for the Preservation of Vaudeville also hosts several dozen performances each year at seniors’ residences throughout Metro Vancouver.

in helping defuse the sense of some locals that the Olympics were an unaffordable playground for the elite and affluent. “It was a huge impact because it caused the city to fill up every night,” Furlong said. “The cultural Olympiad in many ways was bigger than the Games, in fact overshadowed the Games.” He marvelled at people who would line up for hours to enter sponsor tents, provincial houses or ride the Robson Square zip line. “It was important that downtown Vancouver was like a very big arena,” he said. It meant people weren’t just watching as spectators but living the experience. “When (International Olympic Committee president) Jacques Rogge said the Olympics can never go back from this, they were talking about this pouring into the streets of people, not just in Vancouver and Whistler and Surrey and Richmond, but across the country. This happened everywhere. This happened in Toronto and Montreal and Halifax and Grand Prairie.”

Legacy: Games’ ‘indelible spirit’ From page 46 conditions and snow quickly turned to dirt on Cypress Mountain, Furlong headed up the hill daily to monitor his very stressed team battling the conditions. “After four or five days of going up and down, the fellow running the crew up there said ‘John, stop coming up. We won’t let you down. We’re going to deliver this venue. We will find the snow. We will make the conditions right and we will deliver the Games. We are not going to be the ones who fail. You can count on it.’ I realized this was the spirit. This was the heart and soul of what we were about.”
