Taser and rubber bullets didn’t stop man in Vancouver

Swordswinging Surrey man charged by Kevin Diakiw A SURREY MAN has been charged for wielding a sword in downtown Vancouver Monday afternoon. The dramatic incident took place at 1:30 p.m. in front of hundreds of bystanders at the intersection of Burrard and Georgia Streets. Paramveer Singh Rarru allegedly began swinging a sword on the corner, charging at members of the crowd. Police tasered Rarru and shot him with a rubber bullet, both which failed to stop him. Police then tackled him and arrested him. Rarru has been charged and remanded in custody and police have asked the courts to consider a psychological examination. “Incidents like this can be unpredictable and events can unfold quickly. Our primary focus was the safety of all of the bystanders, police officers, and the man we were dealing with,” said Vancouver Police Const. Lindsey Houghton. Witnesses are asked to call 604717-2541 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

About 2,000 people gathered in Central City plaza (above) to watch the Vancouver Canucks beat the Boston Bruins in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final on Wednesday night. Thousands also congregated at 72 Avenue and Scott Road, but police say crowds are well-behaved.

Fans celebrate in style

Police say officers and crowds have learned how to have fun without conflict by Kevin Diakiw SURREY MOUNTIES say they are heading into largely uncharted waters,

as local Canucks celebrations now involve at least two large crowds. Over the past several years, Surrey RCMP and Delta Police have watched over a large spontaneous crowd that gathers after Canucks’ games at Scott Road and 72 Avenue. That group is largely made up of people who spill out from nearby homes in the Newton area. Now the city is holding an organized event for people who want to watch the game at Central City plaza, which can accommodate about 5,000 people. If game nights goes as well as Wednesday did, everything should be fine. Police say a crowd of 2,000 people at the city’s celebration site was completely well-behaved, as was the mob of about 3,500 at 72 Avenue and Scott Road, which saw only one arrest for a fight.

In charge of ensuring the celebrations remain peaceful is Surrey RCMP Cpl. Drew Grainger, who manages operational planning for special events. He scheduled two dozen officers to patrol the Central City site during the first game between the Vancouver Canucks and the Boston Bruins. Going forward, that may change. “It’s going to be a very fluid event, because as I say, we’ve never done this before,” Grainger said, sounding a little like the Canucks coach as he added, “we’ll have to assess it game by game.” Parties throughout the region are expected to increasingly draw on police resources as the Stanley Cup final progresses. The policing costs are expected to increase as the series goes longer. Surrey RCMP are being circumspect about the exact figures, but Grainger said it will cost at least $50,000 in overtime alone for the Vancouver-Boston series, and that’s only if it wraps up in four games.

Policing: Costs rise From page 1 If it goes seven games, that figure could double. Delta Police helps with the crowd at 72 Avenue and Scott Road and estimates it costs between $3,000 and $6,000 in overtime per game. By the end of the series, policing could cost Delta more than $50,000, according to Delta Police Sgt. Paul Eisenzimmer. From a tactical standpoint, police throughout the region say they’ve learned from the successes and failures of the past. The standing example of how not to police large crowds was the Vancouver riot in 1994, the last time the Canucks made it to the Stanely Cup final. Then, the police remained separate from the roiling mass of Canucks fans and the Vancouver Police crowd control unit remained in the basement of a church until the riot broke out. Police cruisers were rolled over by angry mobs, who looted downtown stores. Many people were teargassed and at least one was shot in the head with a rubber bullet. Both Vancouver Police Department Police Chief Jim Chu and Grainger were there. Grainger, then a four-year Mountie, was called in to assist when things got out of control. Both say police have learned a lot since then, Drew Grainger particularly from the successful Olympics hosted in Vancouver last year. Now revellers will see police milling in the crowd, shaking hands and making eye contact. “A tactic that worked very well in the Olympics was just that, filtering through the crowds, being proactive, engaging them, removing their anonymity by giving them a highfive,” Grainger said. The message to the public is that police are celebrating as well, but they have a job to do in making sure everyone is responsible and safe. Eisenzimmer added the public, too has changed since the ill-fated celebrations in 1994. “I think our crowds have changed in the last 16 to 17 years,” Eisenzimmer said. “The Olympics taught people how to celebrate without being stupid.”

Metro Vancouver may be hit with second carbon tax Additional ‘regional’ fee would be added to existing one by Jeff Nagel

Blair Lekstrom

ANY MOVE TO fund TransLink expansion with carbon tax revenue would be by creating a new “regional carbon tax” that would be charged in addition to the existing one, according to Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom. He was responding to NDP questions in the legislature last week after Premier Christy Clark indicated the government would consider using

a share of carbon tax revenues – a long-standing request from the regional mayors council. Lekstrom, however, said the province won’t share revenue now collected through the current carbon tax but would instead consider creating a second Metro Vancouver-only version. “This would be on top of the existing one,” Lekstrom said, adding the “regional carbon tax levy” could be one of a bundle of funding options the mayors may propose for TransLink to avoid raising property taxes further. Area cities are united in seeking much more money for TransLink to fund not just the region’s $400-million share of the stalled Evergreen Line but also additional rapid transit lines and other priorities for expansion.

Lekstrom said the existing carbon tax is fully committed by legislation to offsetting tax relief, so there’s no legal mechanism for it to be shared. B.C.’s carbon tax, now at 4.45 cents on gasoline, rises to 5.56 cents July 1 and 6.67 cents in mid-2012. It currently raises about $1.1 billion a year, with close to 40 per cent of that coming from the Lower Mainland. That’s significantly more than the $325 million TransLink raises from its 15-cent-a-litre gas tax in the region because the carbon tax also applies on home heating and industrial fuels.

LETTERS

Surrey/North Delta Leader 9

Readers take aim at the tax I AM 60-plus years old and I feel the increased taxation. It must be especially difficult for young families with the small amount of disposable income they have being swallowed up by the HST. My most noticeable increase in costs have been on vitamins, clothing, restaurants, cable TV and sports (my curling costs went up this year and so did my golf ). When the HST was originally implemented, my ladies’ golf group experienced rounding up on the cost of our golf game which was more than HST – they said it was easier to do it that way. Then when the season started this year, the price was the same as the rounded-up price last season, plus HST. If you think you are getting the tax back with adjusted pricing, think again. I will be voting “yes” to get rid of this horrific tax and I will expect this government to restore the PST and GST to their previous status, with the same exemptions. It will be unacceptable to expand the PST to a number of goods and services that were previously exempt, as B.C. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon recently indicated they may do. I went to the fight HST website and found a list of items we are now paying additional taxes on. Below is the list of the items previously exempt from PST that now have HST applied to them at an additional seven per cent.

What will cost more with HST, according to the B.C. government website: hstinbc.ca • Accounting • Admission fees • Advertising • Airline tickets • Animal feed (hay is exempt) • Appliance repair and maintenance • Architects • Art galleries admission • Attractions / events • Ballet lessons • Basic cable TV • Bicycles • Campgrounds

• Cigarettes / cigars • Catering • Chinese medicine • Clothing – adultsized children • Clothing – used adult (less than $100) • Coffee shops • Commercial leases • Compost • Computer servicing • Concert tickets • Condo management fees • Consulting services • Conveyance fees • Delivery services • Dietary supplements • Dry cleaning • Driving range fees • Electronics repair • Energy equipment • Esthetician services • Fast food – beverages • Fire extinguishers • First aid kits • Fishing charters • Fitness club memberships • Fitness trainers • Food producing trees and plants • Freight (in B.C.) • Funeral services • Golf fees • Grass cutting • Hair cuts • Hall rental • Health equipment • Helmets • Hockey tickets • Hockey rink rentals • Home appraisals • Home inspections • Home maintenance • Home renovations (labour) • Horse boarding • Horse shows • Horse riding lessons • House cleaning services • Insulation • Interior design services • Investment counselling fees • Landscaping • Life jackets • Limousine rentals • Magazines / newspapers • Marketing services • Massage therapy • Membership fees • Moorage • Museum admissions • Movies / theatre • Moving costs • Music MP3 downloads • Naturopathy • New homes (some rebates applicable) • Non-prescription meds • Painting • Parking • Photography • Postage

T HS • Private bus fares • Printing • Rail travel (originating in B.C.) • Real estate fees • Reflexology • Rentals for weddings, canopies, tuxedos etc. • Reroofing houses • Restaurant meals • RV parks • Safety equipment (not all safety and energy equipment is affected) • School supplies • Shoe repairs • Skiing • Smoke detectors • Snow removal • Solar power • Some groceries • Spa services • Sports training / lessons • Storage lockers • Tailoring • Taxi fares • Telephone (basic charge for landlines will be affected) • Theatre admissions • Veterinarian • Video downloads • Vitamins • Wedding planning • Windows (Energy Star) • Rentals / strata fees (though they are HST exempt, most people will notice increases brought on by an increase in maintenance costs and other costs associated with owning rental and strata properties) • Used cars / trucks / boats / non-turbine aircraft (private sales will have an additional fiveper-cent tax that is not called HST).

A tax on health

I WILL BE voting against

the HST for one simple reason: My 20-swipe pool pass at a local Surrey sports centre has increased from $90.75 to $96.80 because of the HST. I swim to benefit my health. How does paying tax on a leisure sport benefit me? I haven’t seen any improvements in the sport centre. I suspect the $6.05 is forwarded to the federal government, who then funnels it back to the B.C. government. Where does it go from there? This tax does not make sense – it’s as simple as that.

A. Fuginski Surrey

HST not promising despite promises

REGARDING THE HST, where

are the jobs they promised? Where is the price reduction they promised? Businesses get a tax break, then they promise to pass them on to us, the consumer. Two years later and nothing. I know they want us to believe that if we vote no, they will drop the HST down to 10 per cent. What they don’t tell you is that they won’t raise it again later on. It’s like any other tax, they can raise it whenever they want. This government has been fooling the people for years. You cannot tell if they are honest or not.

In my opinion, we should vote the HST out and go back to the GST and PST. You cannot trust that this government will not raise the HST in five years to 14 per cent. These are supposed to be smart people that run for office. I worked 45 years for my pension. They only have to have six years or more for their pension. Under Gordon Campbell, they gave themselves a 29-per-cent raise for salaries. The rest of the people got zero. Now they want all the government workers, school teachers to take no raise. A. Eichhorst, Cloverdale

Teach the system a lesson WE NEED to look back to the beginnings of this HST fray and remember that it wasn’t just another tax that angered the public; it was the way it was done. No need to rewind that sordid story and its aftermath, but don’t think it won’t be a factor in the upcoming referendum vote. Taxpayers felt scorned, manipulated and disrespected by the political establishment and left without democratic representation as their elected representatives hung them out to dry and supported the tax, with the sole exception of Blair Leckstrom, but whom now supports it as a cabinet minister. Such is the sad perversion wrought by the doctrine of party discipline which has hijacked democratic representation. The top few who run this province are gyrating with offers and manoeuvres to save the tax, but it would be a huge mistake for taxpayers to roll over for these people. By offering a few minor adjustments to the original scheme they infer they think we are somewhat Pavlovian and can be made to do anything if we are given a treat, a pat and a promise they will actually make the adjustments after the

vote. Seven million dollars of our money allocated by the government arguing for the tax versus $250,000 for the against side is further cynical disrespect. I personally am astounded by the fact that in all the words of advocacy spoken and written by politicians, and for that matter some of the media, I have not heard a single, solitary word of concern or sympathy about where the money has to come from: the taxpayers pocket which is already taxed to hell. It has all been about how HST best serves the government’s needs. So when you vote, just remember you are also voting not to be kicked around by an inadequate system of representation that should have seen your MLA fighting like a tiger for you because the vast majority of you clearly thought this tax was unfair. You need to teach the system a lesson – don’t trivialize me. Make them dig their own way out of the hole they dug for themselves in the first place. Roy Roope, Summerland

NOTICE TO PUBLIC Nordel Pedestrian Overpass Will be closed for construction from June 6, 2011 to August 31, 2011

The boy they never met

People who never knew Justin Vasey, 14, phoned Delta municipal hall offering to buy him a proper gravestone by Dan Ferguson

The pedestrian overpass is being upgraded for improved wheelchair access and ease of use. For further information please contact: Mainroad Contracting 604 575-7021 Hub Engineering 604 572-4328

Notice of Intention to Stop Up, Close and Cancel the Dedication of a Municipal Road, to Dispose of the Closed Road and to Provide Assistance (Pursuant to Sections 24, 26 and 40 of the Community Charter) TAKE NOTICE THAT the Council of The Corporation of Delta has given first, second and third readings to a bylaw cited as “Delta Road Closure and Cancellation (SFPR – 72nd Street) Bylaw No. 6943, 2011”, and intends to finally consider and adopt this bylaw at a future regular Council meeting. The intent of this bylaw is to stop up, close to traffic and cancel the dedication as road of a 2.065 hectare portion of 72nd Street in Delta, British Columbia outlined in bold and marked “Parcel A” on the Plan that accompanies this Notice. Following final consideration and adoption of Delta Road Closure and Cancellation (SFPR – 72nd Street) Bylaw No. 6943, 2011, that portion of 72nd Street, identified as “Parcel A” on the Plan that accompanies this Notice will cease forever to be a public highway and title shall be vested in The Corporation of Delta. FURTHER TAKE NOTICE THAT, following final consideration and adoption of Delta Road Closure and Cancellation (SFPR – 72nd Street) Bylaw No. 6943, 2011, The Corporation of Delta intends to transfer all its interest in that portion of 72nd Street, identified as “Parcel A” on the Plan that accompanies this Notice to the BC Transportation Finance Authority. The compensation to be received is $1.00. This value is below market value and constitutes assistance pursuant to Section 24 of the Community Charter. However, the value reflects the fact that the land was acquired from a third party by BC Transportation Finance Authority at its sole expense and was to be reacquired by the Province of British Columbia. THIS NOTICE IS FOR THE PURPOSE OF PUBLIC NOTIFICATION ONLY. IT IS NOT AN OFFER TO SELL THE LAND TO ANY OTHER PARTY. Copies of the relevant documents, bylaw and plans (refer to file LAN-07-360) may be inspected at the Municipal Hall at 4500 Clarence Taylor Crescent, Delta, B.C.

THEY GATHERED underneath a grey

sky beneath a bright blue portable canopy, each holding a single yellow rose. About two dozen people attended the Monday (May 30) afternoon service to bless the simple black granite headstone at the Boundary Bay Cemetery in Tsawwassen. The marker read: “In Loving Memory of Justin Vasey” above the date of his birth, Jan. 29, 1994, and death, Feb. 25, 2008. Vasey was 14, a foster child who lived and went to school in Surrey when he suddenly spiralled into despair and began hanging out with a group of older teens who turned on him one night and killed him. He was buried in Delta because that was where the B.C. Ministry of Children and Families happened to have an available plot. In January of this year, a follow-up story on the Vasey case by The Leader disclosed that nearly two years after his death, Justin’s grave still only had a temporary metal marker. It read “VASEY, JUSTIN” spelled out with a crooked stamped-plastic label. Calls started coming in after the story was published. People who never knew Justin Vasey phoned Delta municipal hall offering to fund a proper gravestone. The mayor’s office started accepting donations. There were dozens of donors, including the RCMP officers and support staff at IHIT, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team which helped obtain the conviction of four people in Vasey’s death. More than $1,900 was raised, slightly more than half by police, including IHIT, the Surrey-based forensic identification section and the local detachment. At the Monday afternoon service, a minister made the sign of the cross on the headstone with sand and praised the donors for their “act of kindness and graciousness.” He read the 23rd Psalm, “The Lord is My Shepherd.” A piper played “Amazing Grace” and a singer sang, “I will remember you” by Sarah McLachlan as, one by one, the donors laid the yellow roses at the headstone. Some were in tears. Mayor Lois Jackson expressed thanks to the community, to the “friends and unknown friends” of Justin Vasey. “We hope Justin rests in peace,” Jackson said. While some Vasey relatives have welcomed the outpouring of community support, other family members have expressed unhappiness, saying they intended to do their own headstone. There was no reference to the family disagreement at the service, which was described as a recognition ceremony for the donors.

Vasey received a full funeral service attended by his biological father and foster mother when he was first interred at Boundary Bay. Meanwhile, the three teenagers and one young adult convicted of stabbing Vasey to death in the backyard of a derelict Surrey house are nearing their first parole eligibility dates. In February of 2008, Jordan George was 17. Jade Pollard was 16 and Danielle Wood-Sinclair was 15. George’s half-brother Cody Pelletier was 20.

Justin Vasey was buried in Delta because of an available plot. All four were sentenced as adults after pleading guilty to manslaughter. The Leader follow-up reported that a month before Justin died, the dutiful foster child suddenly turned rebellious, staying out late with a group of older teens who were also in foster care, but far more troubled than Justin. “He was a lamb among wolves,” IHIT spokesman Cpl. Dale Carr told The Leader. On the evening Justin Vasey died, he was hanging out at an abandoned, graffiti-covered single-storey house, drinking shoplifted vodka. It appears Justin made some comment about his father punching First Nations people, trying to mimic the trash talk he heard the three teens and Cody Pelletier, all of them aboriginals, express to one another. All four attacked him, and after the eldest, Cody, passed out, the violence escalated. The autopsy showed Justin was stabbed eight times, four of which were life-threatening, once with enough force to break a rib. His nose was broken, there were eight blunt force injuries to his head and multiple abrasions and bruises. dferguson@langleytimes.com

We are pleased to announce that Surrey is now collecting mattresses for recycling.

Mattress Collection Challenges

Surrey’s Response...Recycle It!

On January 1, 2011, Metro Vancouver placed a disposal ban on mattresses as they are operationally difficult to handle and recyclable when properly disassembled. Mattresses disposed of as garbage cannot be compacted – consuming a large amount of landfill space. In addition, the springs within mattresses often become tangled in equipment causing costly repairs. Customers that bring mattresses to regional transfer stations for disposal as garbage are charged $20/unit and are limited to only four (4) mattresses per load.

While Surrey had consequently stopped collecting mattresses via the Large Item Pickup Program as a result of the Metro Vancouver imposed disposal ban, the City has developed a process to recycle old unwanted mattresses. The City of Surrey will accept mattresses and box springs via the Large Item Pickup Program at no additional cost to residents. The collected mattresses will be delivered to a mattress recycling facility where they will be segregated into different materials and shipped to remanufacturing facilities to be processed into new reusable products.

How to Arrange Collection 1. Call Emterra Environmental at 604-635-5478 2. On the day of your appointment (or the evening before), place your mattress/boxspring at your curb. Ensure that your mattress is at the curb by 7:30am. * Please note that this program is available to households that are on the City’s door-to-door waste collection program. Mattresses or box springs will count towards your annual large item pickup limit of 4 items/calendar year.

ity in schools come September, the BC Teachers’ Federation is holding out the stick of teachers’ job action in a bid to speed up provincial contract negotiations. Unless progress is made in contract negotiations in the next two weeks, the teachers’ union will hold a strike vote between June 24 and 28. Critical of the BC Public Schools Employers Association (BCPSEA) for “stalling,” the BCTF is seeking improvements in wages, benefits and working conditions as well as the negotiation of more issues at the local bargaining table. Jim Iker, a spokesperson for the provincial bargaining team, said it’s not unreasonable to expect a signed contract by the end of June and the threat of job action is necessary to get more substantive proposals on the bargaining table. “We think the (bargaining) tables need increased pressure,” Iker said. “We would like to find a solution by the 30th of June.” But the BCPSEA disagrees that job action is necessary to spur talks because concrete proposals

were to be put on the table Tuesday and another 15 meetings are planned. “It’s disappointing to have talk of strike and job action when bargaining, per se, hasn’t really taken hold, and you have to question is this more of a positioning exercise and a political exercise than a bargaining one,” said Hugh Finlayson, CEO of the employers’ association. Finlayson said it’s possible a contract resolution could be reached by the end of June but only if both sides “put their attention to bargaining.” The teachers are seeking improvements to wages and benefits, as well as class size and composition, a reduction in case loads, more class preparation time and improved learning specialist ratios. Another issue important to teachers is local bargaining, which Iker said would be the best solution to local issues. But much of what the teachers are asking for is out of the hands of the BCPSEA. The province has up to a year to address deficiencies in class size and composition legislation, which the BC Supreme Court ruled was unconstitutional, and another year remains on the government’s “net

zero mandate” wage freeze. Finlayson said other unions managed to achieve collective agreements under the mandate while the class size and composition process has a separate timeline and a separate process. As for expanding local bargaining, Finlayson said it would be inefficient and the two sides should agree to disagree and move on. “If the parties can’t come up with another model, you stay with the one you’ve got,” he said. Meanwhile, the provincial teachers’ union fears a worsening of class size and composition if the issue isn’t addressed at the bargaining table, and Iker said teachers are falling behind other jurisdictions when it comes to salaries and benefits. If contract talks can’t be rejuvenated, teachers will vote on whether to withdraw from administrative duties starting Sept. 6, when the 2011/12 school year begins. More job action could follow, although another vote would be required. Still, teachers plan to coach and assist with clubs as volunteers and parent teachers meetings won’t be affected. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

Pumped about green alternatives All new Surrey gas stations must now offer a minimum of one fuel alternative Black Press THE CITY of Surrey will now require all new gas stations to have at least one alternative fuel source. At its regular meeting Monday, Surrey council passed a motion requiring any new stations include at least one alternative source, such as hydrogen, compressed natural gas, or electric vehicle recharging, in addition to conventional gasoline, diesel and propane energy. “We want to build the alternative fuel infrastructure of the future,” Mayor Dianne Watts said. “It’s important for governments to set an example and lead the way in terms of advancing new technologies.” Surrey is the only city in Canada to have two hydrogen fuelling station, both fully funded by the Canadian Hydrogen Fuel Cell Association. It is also one of only four cities in the country to receive the prestigious Fleet Gold Rating from the Fraser Basin Council for implementing reductions in green house gas (GHG) emissions, investing in low or no-carbon vehicles and energy efficient technologies, and demonstrating staff and management excellence. Other green fleet initiatives Surrey is working on include:

• Operating two zero-emission Ford Focus hydrogen fuel cell vehicles (FCV) and is working toward expanding the number of FCV’s through a partnership with Powertech Labs. • Introducing a number of 100 per cent electric vehicles as part of a 2011 pilot project that will assist the city in assessing the performance of and establishing the appropriate operational changes that are required to ensure that this type of vehicle will be effective in its deployment as part of the city’s fleet • Introducing Canada’s first compressed natural gas (CNG) municipal waste collection truck for residential curbside service. Natural gas emits 20 to 30 per cent fewer GHGs compared to gasoline and diesel fuels. In addition, natural gas does not pool when it is spilled and is therefore not as impactful from a contamination perspective. • A partnership with SFU’s School of Mechatronics (Surrey campus) and the engineering department to co-sponsor a postdoctoral research project, which was initiated in April 2011. It is focused on developing a tool that will help the city better assess the pros and cons of low carbon alternatives to gas and diesel municipal fleet vehicles.

Strong Rehabilitation Centre in Vancouver for three months, Tull and his wife began searching the Internet for possible treatments and they found a clinic based in Abbotsford that was offering some new technology. Tull has been working with two new rehabilitation devices designed to improve his hand flexibility and give him the ability to walk on his own. The devices, made by a company called Bioness, deliver electrical stimulation to the muscle which in turn sends a message to the damaged portion of the brain allowing the brain

to relearn what has been damaged by the stroke. The new technology is the first of its kind in Western Canada and Tull is taking advantage of every edge he can get. “At first it was depressing, but you just have to get past that,” said Tull, 56. The past president of the Delta Flying Club has no plans on giving up. In fact, he still has a goal of going hunting and fishing with his son again.

According to his physiotherapist Heather Branscombe of Abilities Rehabilitation in Surrey, his goal is not out of the question. “You have to remember this is a marathon not a sprint, but you can never say never when it comes to rehab. There’s new technology coming out all the time.” Although the Bioness system is not cheap – more than $6,000 per device – the equipment can be rented on a weekly basis. And there is a free screening process for every patient to see if these machines would be a benefit. Tull also combines his physiotherapy with a personal trainer and pool exercise four times a week. “Steve is supermotivated and has the time and the resources to benefit from this treatment,” Branscombe says. “All patients need repetition, and this is just one of many tools needed for patients to make serious progress.” photo@surreyleader.com

Auction aims to fund Alexa’s Bus Mobile blood-alcohol testing unit to help in fight against impaired driving

The silent auction aims to raise $50,000 for the Back the Bus campaign, an initiative aimed at putting mobile blood-alcohol testing units – called Alexa’s Bus – on the road to aid police in the fight against impaired driving. The effort is in honour of fouryear-old Alexa Middelaer, who died in May 2008, after she was struck by a car while feeding a horse at the side of a Ladner road.

Suction-cup grab bars are only safe when installed right. Be sure the wall is clean and free of any soap residue or dirt when installing. Grab bars: for pulling up from a seated position, place the bar horizontally. For stepping in and out assistance, place the bar vertically. Never install diagonally. Do not trust your safety to the shower curtain rod, the towel rack, the soap dish or the washcloth rack in the shower. These were designed to hold a wet towel at the most... and anyone needing grab bar assistance weighs more than a wet towel. We recommend having grab bars installed by a qualified professional. Safety grab bars and floorto-ceiling poles can be installed anywhere in your home to make your life easier.

Metro directors douse idea of full smoking ban in parks Most parts of regional parks, trails would stay cigarette friendly by Jeff Nagel METRO VANCOUVER will draw up new rules to

restrict smoking in high-traffic areas of regional parks but it won’t force all smokers to butt out throughout parks and trails. That’s the preliminary decision of the Metro parks committee Wednesday after Vancouver Coun. Tim Stevenson’s motion for a full ban on smoking in regional parks was defeated 7-4. “The majority of people don’t want to be bothered walking down a trail on a beach or anywhere else in a park by second-hand smoke,” Stevenson said. Burnaby Coun. Pietro Calendino and Pitt Meadows Mayor Don MacLean supported a complete ban. But Area A director Maria Harris said there should be places to smoke in Metro’s parks. “We can’t be the health police,” she said, adding she also opposes a smoking ban on trails. Langley City Coun. Gayle Martin, the parks committee chair, agreed trails should be exempt. “On a trail, I don’t think you see 30 or 40 people walking together smoking cigarettes,” she said. Martin said restrictions are needed where people congregate, such as picnic shelters, as well as beaches and playgrounds. The committee voted to have staff report back on possible restrictions to ban smoking near those areas, potentially with designated smoking zones also provided. Martin noted managers can already ban smoking temporarily when fire hazards are high. Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart said Metro would have to start banning some food from picnic baskets if it wants to block all unhealthy activities in parks. “The only difference between a cigarette and a French fry is the cigarette has the ability to affect others,” he said. Surrey Coun. Marvin Hunt said it would be simplest to leave the exact placement of no-smoking zones or designated smoking areas to Metro parks managers, adding that has been Surrey’s practice. Calendino said the parks committee was “waffling” by not proceeding with a full ban. A final decision will go to a vote of the full Metro

board in the months ahead, where Vancouver councillors could still try to push through a full ban. “We’re very much in favour of a complete prohibition,” Stevenson said. “We feel it’s like an airplane – you head to a park, you don’t smoke any more.” Vancouver is one of several cities in the region that already bans smoking throughout its civic parks and he said Metro needs to follow suit to make a health statement. More of the remaining smokers might be spurred to quit if parks go off limits, he added. “I feel understanding for senior citizens who maybe got off the battlefields smoking but maybe they need to quit too.” MacLean said few smokers use parks anyway. “It’s hard to walk when you smoke a pack or two a day,” he said. Any rules could follow in the vein of some other cities in the region and cover not just tobacco smoking but also marijuana and hookah pipe use in parks. The committee rejected a staff recommendation to go out to public consultation on multiple options, including a complete ban. Martin said Metro will not ban campfires at Metro-run campgrounds. Langley Township Coun. Mel Kositsky said the smoking in parks issue should be regulated in all areas by the provincial government, rather than leaving a patchwork quilt of differing regulations in each city as well as the Metro parks. Different rules in different parks confuses residents who travel across civic boundaries, he said, adding there are similar problems with differing regulations to prevent metal theft and restrict pesticide use. Any new Metro policy that rolls out would affect areas like Tynehead, Campbell Valley, Pacific Spirit, Lynn Headwaters and Belcarra regional parks as well as greenways such as Pitt River and Seymour River. Beaches governed by Metro Parks include Centennial Beach at Boundary Bay Regional Park, Wreck Beach in Vancouver and Sasamat Lake in Belcarra. In all, Metro runs 22 regional parks as well as four greenways that will include 100 kilometres of trails once complete.

Understanding your Property Tax Notice The 2011 Financial Plan includes a 2.48% property tax increase for the provision of general services and an increase of 0.5% for extra police for a combined total of 2.98%. Did you know… In 2011, the average residential property assessment increased by 9%. However, your property may experience a different tax increase depending on how much your property assessment has changed. Your property assessment is determined by BC Assessment every January. For instance… The table below shows that if your home increased in value by 9% from $490,000 in 2010 to $534,000 in 2011, your municipal property tax will increase by 2.98%. If the assessed value of your home is less than 9%, your property tax will be lower than the average. If the value of your home increased by more than the average 9%, your property tax increase will be higher than the average. Property Assessment

Lawsuit over SFPR

Friday, June 3, 2011 Surrey/North Delta Leader 21

thermography We are proud to announce the launch of our new

Breast Screening Thermography Program.

TFN members say route runs through burial grounds by Christine Lyon TWO TSAWWASSEN First Nation members are suing the province to try and halt construction of a section of the South Fraser Perimeter Road. Bertha Williams and William Burnstick have filed a claim in B.C. Supreme Court which states the four-lane, 40-kilometre highway would run through burial grounds and other archeologically sensitive sites. They say the government knew of the harm the road would do to a 40-km stretch of the Fraser River, which includes the Glenrose Cannery and St. Mungo archaeological sites, but “did not consider the conservation, protection, preservation of social, cultural, economic and archeological values” of the land. The government allegedly ignored an archeological report on the project and took no steps to modify the road’s design to mitigate the harm. Williams and Burnstick are represented by lawyer Jay Straith, who is also representing the Burns Bog Conservation Society in a claim against the province.

“I am quite sure that the province of British Columbia, if this was a Jewish or Protestant or Catholic cemetery, would make appropriate arrangements because doing this kind of thing is prohibited under the Cemetery and Cremations Act,” Straith told The Leader. “(The provincial government) just bury the (archeological) report and say ‘Well, it’s First Nations, who cares?’ It’s an insult to the public’s intelligence and it’s a hell of an insult to our First Nations,” he said. If the project is not revamped, the sites will allegedly “suffer irreparable harm in that these ancient burial sites will forever be disturbed and altered,” the complaint states. The Tsawwassen First Nation members say the road “can be modified to take into account the sites of archeological significance and protect the spiritual and sacred sites and that there was no consideration given to these factors in the final design of the project and/or its ongoing construction.” Williams and Burnstick are seeking a court injunction to stop the project so the sites can be protected.

Last week, executive director of the Gateway Program Geoff Freer gave a presentation on the SFPR and its future impacts on Delta at a Delta Chamber of Commerce business meeting. His presentation stated that extensive work continues with First Nations groups, including archaeological protection during and after construction and long-term management plans for archaeological sites. Meanwhile, Delta South Independent MLA Vicki Huntington has criticized the Gateway Program for backing away from its environmental commitments and cutting corners on the SFPR through Delta. In a press release, Huntington says Gateway wants to install culverts rather than bridges at North Delta watercourse crossings and has requested the clearing of 1.2 hectares of Burns Bog forest. “Gateway’s proposal illustrates yet another attempt to subvert consultation and dilute environmental protection measures – for a project that is already disastrous for Delta,” Huntington stated. reporter@southdeltaleader.com

Site clamps down on U-Pass reselling TransLink says illegal trade costs $15 million by Jeff Nagel CRAIGSLIST is finally

helping stamp out the illegal trade in U-Passes that TransLink says costs it millions of dollars in lost fare revenue each year. The free classifieds website began deleting ads for the post-secondary student transit passes – which aren’t transferable and can’t be resold – Thursday morning after Transit Police sent a letter requesting action. “Most of the ads on Craigslist disappeared quite suddenly,” TransLink spokesman Ken Hardie said, adding TransLink had tried for months to get the site to comply. “It’s a good result.” An estimated $15 million worth of U-Passes are reported lost or stolen each year and are replaced, but many of the originals show up for sale later on or find their way into the hands of other users. There are also stu-

dents who register for college or university, get their pass and then drop out but don’t return it. A U-Pass is equivalent to a $151 threezone monthly pass so an SFU student who acquires one for $26 and doesn’t need it can flip it at a hefty profit. “We’re picking them up on a somewhat regular basis being misused in the system,” Hardie said. There are currently 80,000 students with U-Passes in Metro Vancouver. But several more institutions are signing on effective next September at a new standard rate of $30 a month, adding another 60,000 pass holders. “This time next year we don’t want to be talking about a $20- or $25-million problem,” Hardie said. It’s hoped institutions and student societies will help police U-Pass use by students over the short term, he said. Transit Police also sometimes conduct

“buy and bust” stings to nab U-Pass resellers. Officers approach those selling U-Passes, seize the pass and ticket the seller. Someone who buys and uses a resold U-Pass can also get a $173 ticket if caught. Ultimately, TransLink’s

move to smart cards is expected to largely eliminate the problem once the new fare payment system arrives in a couple of years. The same chip in the Compass card will be embedded in student cards from each institution.

Students who can’t give up their student cards that they need on campus wouldn’t therefore be able to sell them as they can now with a separate U-Pass. As with the coming smart cards, the student cards with Compass technology built in will

also have to be scanned as students board the transit system. “TransLink will have the ability to electronically turn off a card that’s lost, stolen or belongs to a student that has dropped out of school,” Hardie said. “We believe it will be a

far more durable solution.” TransLink hasn’t yet finalized contracts with all the institutions expected to join the U-Pass system by September, but Hardie said that’s expected to happen by late June.

GVHBA holds Parade of Renovated Homes on June 12

Home renos come out in the open Homeowners in need of renovation inspiration, your wait is over. The Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association (GVHBA) is hosting its annual Parade of Renovated Homes on June 12, which will see homes across Metro Vancouver thrown wide open to show off their professional renovations. Homes in Burnaby, Coquitlam, New Westminster, Vancouver, North Vancouver, West Vancouver and Surrey will be open from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m., and admission is $10. That price includes admittance to each home in the parade. GVHBA President and CEO Peter Simpson says the projects will show off leading-edge design, advanced construction techniques, energy-efficient features, and innovative building products from top-

quality renovators. “For the homeowner to agree to have their home open for the day is a testament to how pleased they are with the jobs,” he says. With homeowners in the Metro Vancouver area set to spend $4.4 billion on renovations in 2011, Simpson says the Parade will offer them a chance to see potential results and learn about what B.C. renovators have to offer. “Professional renovators, many of them award winners, will be on site to offer expert advice and discuss their craftsmanship,” he says. “There is a wide range in project values, offering homeowners an abundance of ideas they can possibly incorporate into their own renovations.” Check out www.gvhba.org to see the full list of participating homes.

Red Maple Park emphasizes community spirit by Colin Oswin

Are you looking to move out of a subdivision and into a community? Red Maple Park may be just what you’re looking for. Red Maple, from developer Polygon, features 122 townhome units built around an 8,400-square-foot resortstyle clubhouse full of amenities. The townhomes range from 1,198 to 1,566 square feet, with two or three bedrooms. Every home includes a deck or patio, and a private fenced yard. The exteriors feature Arts & Crafts-style architecture, which takes traditional, European elements and adds modern touches to provide a sleek, yet homey feel. “I think it just provides a nice, welcoming streetscape,” says Goldie Alam, vice-president of marketing for Polygon. “People are attracted to it because it feels so welcoming.” Inside, the homes are built around an open-plan layout, with nine-foot ceilings on the main floor.

“If you’re in the kitchen you can still see people in the living room,” Alam says. “It provides a great, open feel.” Kitchens feature granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances and fullheight ceramic tile backsplashes. Living areas feature large bay windows that fill the home with natural light, and decorative window shelves add a touch of character. Ensuite bathrooms have big walk-in showers, his-and-hers porcelain sinks and dual-flush toilets, along with a full-length vanity mirror perfect for getting ready before that big night out.

Alam says the clubhouse – The Maples Club – will act as an anchor and a central meeting place for the people who move into the development. “It’s at the heart of the community, and all of the homes are built around it,” she says. Outside, the clubhouse features a terrace with a pool and whirlpool. Inside, residents will find a gym, kitchen and a big meeting room with a fireplace. A screening room offers a massive TV and stadium seating – perfect for birthdays, the Stanley Cup finals featuring our own Vancouver Canucks or Oscar parties. “If you want to have a big group, it’s a good place to do it,” Alam says. Residents with guests staying over can rent one of two clubhouse suites for the night. The suites are outfitted like hotel rooms, and a concierge will be on hand to look after your guests. The lower floor of the clubhouse features an indoor park for the kids, with climbing structures and a childsized soccer field, with goal posts painted on the walls.

Outside, children will be able to play in the Maples Park located right next to the clubhouse, with traditional playground equipment as well as a fun bouncy floor. “On rainy days they can be inside playing, and on sunny days they can be outside,” Alam says. Located on 80 Ave., just east of 208 St., Red Maple Park offers easy access to several nearby restaurants and recreation centres, as well as the Willowbrook Shopping Centre. Several big box stores are located minutes to the south on 200 St. Sales started on March 26 for the initial release – 34 homes in total – and Alam says 32 are already sold. She says these homes represent good value and a great location for young families, and the grand opening proved it: Maples Park was packed with kids playing on the playground equipment. Homes at Red Maple Park start at $299,900. For more information, check out www.polyhomes.com/community/redmaple-park or call 604-888-8699.

People are attracted to it because it feels so welcoming,” says Goldie Alam, vice-president of marketing for Polygon.

SPORTS Fun is a key for Falcons

Friday, June 3, 2011

Surrey/North Delta Leader 33

Four local soccer squads in provincial play by Rick Kupchuk THE KEY to any success the Surrey Christian Falcons might have at this week’s B.C. Senior AA girls high school soccer tournament is to just have fun. The third place team at the recent Fraser Valley tournament, the Falcons seem to do their best when they are relaxed, and playing with confidence. “I think our team plays its best when we just play for each other, when we trust each other and enjoy ourselves,” said Surrey Christian coach David Miedema. “A key to success for us seems to be that enjoying the game leads to us playing a good game, and if you play a good game you have a chance to win it.” The Falcons closed out the Fraser Valley tournament with a 3-2 win over the Archbishop Carney Stars, the host team for this year’s provincial tournament in Coquitlam.

Trailing 2-0 at half time, Surrey were able to start connecting on our passes, started to control the flow of Christian scored a pair of late goals to force overtime. the game a lot more and were able to Kim De Jager netted the Falcons play really strong team defence.” first goal with six minutes to play, then The Burnsview Griffins are also at Vanessa Wiebe tied the contest with a the tournament, having won the Fraser penalty shot three minutes later.

wraps up with the championship and placing games tomorrow. The Panorama Ridge Thunder placed second at the Fraser Valley tournament, winning three of four games. They lost 2-0 to the South Delta Sun Devils in the championship game. Panorama Ridge is the second seed in their four-team group for round robin play. The Point Grey Greyhounds, South Kamloops Titans and the Sardis Falcons are the other teams in the group. The Thunder edged Sardis 2-1 in a Fraser Valley playoff game. The Princess Margaret Lions also won three of their first four games, and placed sixth in the Fraser Valley after dropping their final two contests. The Panthers were seeded fourth for the Fraser Valley tournament, two spots higher than the Thunder. The Lions are grouped with South Delta, the Sentinel Spartans and Kitsilano Blue Demons for round robin play.

B.C. championships in Burnaby

Aiming for the podium by Rick Kupchuk SHE’S DONE it before. And results to date prove she could do it again. Asianna Covington could find herself on the podium in three events at this weekend’s B.C. Track and Field championships in Burnaby this weekend. A Surrey resident and student at Vancouver’s Little Flower Academy, Covington has qualified for the provincial meet in hammer throw, discus and shot put with results that should have her contending for gold medals should she repeat those efforts at Swangard Stadium. Covington is the defending provincial champion in the women’s shot put event, winning gold in 2010 with a throw of 11.65m. Covington also won a pair of bronze medals last year. She was just behind silver medalist Samantha Kennedy of Cloverdale’s Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary. In qualifying for the provincial meet this spring, Kennedy threw 52.06m, while Covington qualified with 51.31m. Covington will be challenged by Brett Hastings of Reynolds Secondary in Victoria in the discus. Hastings won a silver medal in 2010 with

a throw of 35.57m, just 10cm further than Covington, and both competitors have thrown better than 38m in qualifying for this year’s provincial championship. Serena Graf of Seaquam Secondary could also win three medals in field events, after reaching the podium twice last year. The defending provincial champion in the girls javelin, Graf was first at the Fraser Valley meet with a throw of 39.8 metres, an improvement of the toss of 38.92m which won provincial gold a year ago. Graf won a bronze medal in the shot put in 2010, finishing two places behind Covington, and is again a medal contender. She just missed the podium in hammer throw last year, placing fourth, and is a medal contender again this year. Distance runner Keffri Neal of Fleetwood Park is a medal contender in two events. He set a Fraser Valley record of 1:50.72 seconds in the 800m race, a time which would have won the B.C. championship race in 2010 in which he placed second. Neal is also contesting the 1,500m race, and event in which he placed second at the Fraser Valley meet in 4:01.75 seconds. Last year’s race at the provincials was won in 4:04.02.

North Delta took two games from the Fraser Valley Junior Chiefs Saturday at Whalley Stadium, winning by scores of 4-1 and 4-0.

Trailing 1-0 for most of the first game, the Jays scored twice in the sixth inning the take the lead then added two more insurance runs in the seventh. Ryan Braun drove in a pair of runs for North Delta, while pitcher Brett Sakaki allowed one run on one hits and three walks over six innings for the win. Roberto Bevacqua of Fraser Valley took the loss despite throwing a one-hitter over six innings. Sodai Hoshi tossed a completegame shutout in the second game, leading North Delta to the win. The Chiefs managed six hits and

After the two losses to North Delta, Fraser Valley was swept in a double header Sunday by the Langley Blaze. Garrett Hasner was two-forfour at the plate in game one, a 5-2 Blaze victory.

Kassandra Kaulius died in a car accident last month while on her way home after coaching the Pee Wee team at a game at Cloverdale Athletic Park. With her parents in attendance at the tournament, also in Cloverdale, the Storm won four of five round robin games to qualify for the playoff round. They then defeated the Victoria Devils (5-4) and the Fraser Valley Fusion (4-2) before losing 8-1 to the Delta Heat in the final. Outstanding pitching efforts came from Michaela Moore and Tyler Lapeyre, with Vanessa Patrignani performing well as catcher. Shaelyn Ogilvie, Raelyn Radovich, Janey Thomas, Taylor Uyeno, Charlotte McNair, Téa Graf, Daniella Vilio, and Danielle Martyniuk were offensive standouts. Olivia Bridge and Kelly Halverson also played well for the Storm.

WRCAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Barker inks volleyball scholarship Will study psychology at NAIA school by Nick Greenizan LAST WEEK, when White Rock Christian Academyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Carly Barker officially signed a letter of intent to play volleyball next season at Warner Pacific, the only people happier than her were likely her parents. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just because Tim and Nancy Barker were proud of their daughter â&#x20AC;&#x201C; though they certainly are â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll soon be able to visit two of their children on one trip. The Barkersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; oldest child, Riley, just finished his first year studying and playing basketball at the University of Portland, which is just 20 minutes from Warner Pacific, a small college that plays in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). A third Barker, 16-year-old Corey, attends WRCA. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big reason why I picked Warner â&#x20AC;&#x201C; because Portland is where my brother plays,â&#x20AC;?

If you were asked to risk everything to save the world, would you? A young local author explores the concept in his newly released debut novel, Evan

sacrifice

EVAN SEAL / THE LEADER

Author Spencer McLean is described as ‘unsighted but insightful’ in his first novel, Evan, which is being launched this weekend at Iguana’s Beach Grill in White Rock. by Hannah Sutherland

I

n most Hollywood scripts involving a force that threatens someone’s life – or, on a larger scale, humanity – a hero steps up and risks all to save others. It’s a sacrifice that’s been repeatedly played out but hasn’t always been explored. Which is what prompted writer Spencer McLean to ponder such a decision and delve further into one’s reasons and motives for making it. The result? His first and newly released self-published novel, Evan. “I think sacrifice is an interesting concept,” the White Rock author said. “Why aren’t people just totally self-interested? Why do we make sacrifices for anyone else?” The book is centred around a troubling question: If you had to diee in order for everyone else to live, what would you do? The story’s main character, Evan, is described as a young woman who is forced to answer this question when her ordinary life is overturned by the arrival of an “otherworldly threat that intends to alter the very realityy of her world.” The book was released just a couple months ago after nine years of work – all of which McLean did without a computer monitor. The 30-year-old has been blind since he was around eight or nine,, ne and uses a speech program that verbally relays everything being done on his computer. The loss of his sight was one of the effects of Kniest, a rare condition characterized by mutation of the collagen gene and the body’s limited ability to manufacture cartilage. As well as his retinas, McLean’s joints have been affected, resulting in his use of a wheelchair. Technology has allowed him to explore his interests in writing and reading – which he does by downloading or scanning books and listening to the audio on his computer. aduating from McLean said he has always been drawn to literature, and, after graduating Semiahmoo Secondary, attended Kwantlen Polytechnic University for a couple of years to learn more. “I took all the English classes I could get my hands on.” He left in 2002 to focus on Evan, a project he likened to building a house from scratch without any carpentry experience. “You think you know what your voice is going to be like and you think you know what you want to say... turns out, it’s not as easy as you think it’s going to be.” But after three rewrites, McLean said he now has a better understanding of the writing process and refining his art.

“Once you get that figured out, you don’t lose it, ” he said, noting his second book, Gnaritas, is proving much easier to write and could be published by the end of the year. Even so, McLean said he could’ve continually tweaked Evan. “I don’t think anything you ever really write is finished. It’s more that you have to say goodbye to it at some point.” McLean described the work to be a contemporary piece of fiction that touches on philosophy and is largely influenced by some classic works, including John Milton’s Paradise Lost and Genesis. The latter – in which Eve eats the apple from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil – is a story that never sat well with McLean. It always really bugged me a little bit,” he said. ”If people believe the story, there are “It consequences consequence to that... People have judged women because of that story. “I really wanted to write something that was an answer to that.” Rather than a woman “tearing down the world,” Evan is an Eve-like figure who saves it, McLean said. He hopes readers will also gain insight from the relationship between two tw of the book’s characters – best friends whose constant arguing has sig cant ramifications. signfi “I “ think especially in the States but here, too, we’re becoming a society whe you have to have a position on everything and you have to be right. where see like being right is more important than it ever used to be,” he said, It seems noting the benefits of hearing other people’s opinions and learning why they t way they do. think the “Debating things is a really healthy part of our society. We’ve made it less “Deb pleasant to have those discussions because (everyone) just wants to be right all the time.” Evan raises a number of issues, McLean said, which he hopes generates ra discussion discussion. “I like it when people think about issues in our society and I think it’s good when w people talk about ab them,” he said. “I like ideas so I want to get them out there. Fiction is really just the delivery system for the idea.” Those interested in Evan are invited to meet with McLean at a book launch tomorrow (Saturday, June 4) at 6:30 p.m. The event is being held at one of McLean’s favourite White Rock restaurants, Iguana’s Beach Grill, 14985 Marine Dr. “I’ve been going for 10 years now,” he said. “There’s a bar that plays a prominent role in the book. I call it Iguana’s as an homage to that.” Copies of Evan will be available for sale at the launch. The book can also be purchased in Kindle and paperback formats on amazon.com For more information, visit spencermclean.com

the recent Student Auto Skills Competition sponsored by BCAA, BCIT and B.C. Ford dealers. The two-man team of Simrin Dhillon and Jeffrey Meyer, both automotive students, won a 1.6 litre engine and a scanner for the school, and they each took home a set of screwdrivers, a set of punches, a trophy and bursaries. The contest began with a written exam, and students from the top 10 schools moved on the hand-on competition. Teams were then given ten identical vehicles with identical “bugs” to fix within the 90-minute limit. Kwalikum Secondary won first place and Rutland Secondary took second.

The Barry Sullivan Law Cup is awarded annually during Law Week at the Vancouver Art Gallery. Primorac took home a trophy along with a $1,500 cash prize. Rogers went home with trophy and $250.

The finalists were judged by the Associate Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of British Columbia, a law professor from the University of British Columbia Law School and a columnist from the Vancouver Sun. This year’s theme was “Access to Justice: Can justice be achieved outside the courtroom?” Law Day is a national event held annually in April to celebrate the signing of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

SECT ION CO-ORDINATOR: BOAZ JOSEPH (PHONE 604-575-2 744)
