contain multiple secondary suites, according to a recent poll conducted by Ipsos-Reid. Don Luymes, the cityâ€™s manager of the community planning division, said in the survey of 1,200 residents, three per cent admitted they have multiple secondary suites in their houses. Given the number of homes in this city â€“ about 130,000 â€“ that puts the multiple suites estimate at about 4,000. The figure represents a thorny issue for council as it tries to develop a strategy for regulating secondary suites that will increase the amount of affordable housing while respecting the integrity of single-family-home neighbourhoods. Multiple suites are not allowed in Surrey. The cityâ€™s planned housing strategy allows one suite per home.

Falcon offers ER cash for speedier hospitals
FIFTEEN OF B.C.â€™s busiest hospital emergency departments will get a slice of $22 million to foster innovation in the latest round of the provinceâ€™s pay-for-performance strategy. The cash is being offered by health minister Kevin Falcon to reward hospitals that find new ways to unclog bottlenecks and get patients through ERs faster. â€œThose that perform better will get more funding,â€? Falcon said Wednesday, predicting the move will cut wait times and boost hospital staff morale. â€œOur belief is Kevin Falcon if we can tackle this in the busiest emergency departments in the province, that is going to have a very positive ripple effect.â€? Fraser Health will get $6.4 million, spread out between Surrey Memorial, Royal Columbian, Burnaby and Abbotsford Regional hospitals. The biggest amounts â€“ $12.4 million â€“ go to Vancouver General, See FUNDS / Page 4

Surrey drug probe leads to multiple arrests
The Surrey Board of Trade, Surrey School District and two Surrey universities have banded together to advocate for sufﬁcient funding and resources for the city’s education system.
Cocaine and cash seized
BLACK PRESS PHOTO
by Dan Ferguson A HUNT for drug traffickers by
Surrey Mounties has led to arrests in Abbotsford and Vancouver. Four people were arrested at two locations on Oct. 13. In Abbotsford, members of the Surrey RCMP Drug Section seized nine ounces of cocaine and $10,000 in cash from a 36-year-old Vancouver man and a 22-year-old Abbotsford man. At a Vancouver location, Surrey officers seized five kilograms of cocaine and $145,000 in cash from two men, both from Surrey, one 26 years old, the other 43. The street value of the Insp. Wade drugs was Lymburner estimated to be approximately $400,000. “We have no direct links to organized crime right now,” Insp. Wade Lymburner, the senior investigator of the Surrey RCMP Drug Section told reporters at a Wednesday press briefing. “The amount that we recovered and the cash would lead us to suspect there may be some involvement but we can’t confirm any of that right now.” The four men have been released from custody to appear in court in mid-December, Lymburner said. None have been charged yet. email@example.com

A song for Laura Szendrei Friend records musical memorial by Dan Ferguson THE WEEKEND after 15-year-old Laura Szen-
drei died, 16-year-old Armin Farahbakhsh started working on a song to remember her by. Farahbakhsh attended Burnsview Secondary, the same North Delta school Szendrei did. They were in different years, so they didn’t go to classes together, but they moved in the same circles and attended the same events, and he wanted to honour her memory.
Under his performing name of “Lil Frak,” an abbreviated version of his last name, Farahbakhsh posts original rap songs online at http:// www.myspace.com/lilfrak. He says the first draft of the song took him about an hour-and-a-half to produce but it was another week of constant revisions and feedback from people who knew Szendrei before he was ready to record it. It was important to get it right, he says. The title is “No Respect.” The lyrics describe Laura Szendrei as an “angel of this Earth” who will “never be forgotten.” “It’s crazy / we live in a society / where little girls die / and they can’t even say goodbye / to me,” Farahbakhsh sings.
The song talks about the frustration and alarm of not knowing who is responsible for the attack and how it has shaken many people’s faith that life is fair and logical. “This world got no respect,” he sings. In the song, Farahbakhsh refers to Szendrei’s nickname of “Snooki” after Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi from the popular reality program Jersey Shore, by saying he thinks about Szendrei every time he watches the show. Szendrei died after she was attacked Sept. 25 while walking through Mackie Park during the day. Anyone with information about the case is urged to contact the Delta Police at 604-9464411 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. firstname.lastname@example.org

One possibility discussed among staff is to create special zoning for multiple suites. However, that would be an onerous process as the homes are spread out across the city. The other option considered by city staff is to allow people inhabiting the suites extra time to move out. The onesuite-per-home policy would eventually create more dwellings where people could relocate. Luymes expects there will also be some way to augment enforcement, although he couldn’t say how. Asked if that would mean more bylaw officers, he said that would have to be a decision made by council. He also acknowledges not every community wants to allow even one suite per home. Luymes said the city already has a
JIM PATTISON TOYOTA DOWNTOWN 1290 Burrard Street (604) 682-8881
system in place where residents can “downzone” if they want to opt out of the one-suite-per-home policy. Similar downzonings took place in St. Helen’s Park, where a large portion of the community wanted to keep houses at a smaller size. What a downzoning process would look like would also be up to council. The city knows of 19,000 single secondary suites in Surrey, yet councillors and staff acknowledge there are likely many more than that. Of those suites, 14,400 pay Surrey a $700 annual utility fee to cover the cost of extra services, such as water, sewer and garbage collection. Of the 19,000 suites, just 1,800 are in areas legally zoned for secondary accommodation. The suites are more likely to be found in Fleetwood/Newton (28 per cent), and Guildford and Whalley (20 per cent), while much fewer are found in South
Surrey (14 per cent) and Cloverdale (12 per cent). How all suites will be regulated will be the subject of discussion in focus groups over the following weeks. Luymes said a report to council could come as soon as fall, but he wants to have an iron-clad plan prepared before asking councillors to vote on it. The Corporation of Delta just passed a secondary suite bylaw in July, leaving Surrey as the last municipality in the region to regulate them. In Delta, there are an estimated 5,300 to 7,000 suites that will now have to meet new municipal standards, or the owner will be fined $200 a day. That fine comes into effect at the end of this year and will include suites that don’t meet new standards and any building with more than one secondary suite.

St. Paul’s, Lions Gate and Richmond hospitals in the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority, but hospitals in Victoria, Nanaimo, Kelowna, Vernon, Kamloops and Prince George will also get funds. The money could go to projects such as special treatment areas or realtime electronic tracking systems to streamline patient handling. Hospitals not on the list will still benefit, Falcon said, because successful strategies will be shared with them. Falcon said initial pilot projects in the Lower Mainland found Fraser Health’s ERs were able to discharge twice as many patients with more minor problems within a two-hour standard than previously. Dr. Eric Grafstein, the lead physician for ER services at St. Paul’s Hospital, said the payfor-performance project underway there has cut the average time to see an ER doctor by 40 per cent, to about 35 minutes. B.C. has earmarked $250 million for pay-forperformance funding and that is to climb to 20 per cent of all health care spending by 2012. NDP health critic Adrian Dix said the money is not new, but redirected from other health authority funding. He said this year’s 1.2-per-cent increase in acute-care funding for Fraser Health was far below what Victoria knew would be required. “We have a minister of health who thinks changing pots of money is reform in health care.”

Delta officer testifies in Vancouver assault case Surrey newspaper delivery driver attacked in 2009 by Dan Ferguson
THREE POLICE officers arrested for the 2009 assault of a Surrey newspaper delivery man were briefly reunited in a fifth floor hallway of the Vancouver Provincial Court building earlier this week. Delta Police Const. Blair Tanino and West Vancouver Const. Griffin Gillan were there to testify for the prosecution in the trial of the third officer, New Westminster Const. Jeffrey Klassen, who is charged with assault and possession of stolen property in the alleged attack on Surrey resident Firoz (Phil) Khan. Gillan, who maintains he cannot remember the incident, pleaded guilty to assault and received a 21-day conditional sentence last year. Tanino was not charged. During a break in the proceedings Tuesday morning, Tanino and Gillan quietly took hallway seats a few feet from each other while Klassen stood with his lawyer. During his testimony Monday and Tuesday, Tanino said that the three off-duty officers were making the rounds of local drinking establishments on Jan. 21, 2009 after watching a hockey game. When they arrived at the Roxy nightclub on Granville Street, Tanino said he and Klassen got separated from Gillan. When he tried to contact Gillan using his cellphone, Tanino said the response he received was worrisome. He heard a â€œcalmâ€? voice that did not sound like Gillan. â€œWho is this?â€? Tanino asked. â€œThe Hyatt,â€? the voice replied. â€œGriff â€™s in trouble,â€? Tanino recalled telling Klassen. â€œSomething doesnâ€™t sound right.â€? Tanino and Klassen took a cab to the Hyatt Regency Hotel, arriving in time to see a confrontation between Gillan and Khan, a newspaper delivery man. Both men had their hands on each otherâ€™s shoulders, he said. Tanino said he sepa-

Under crossexamination by defence lawyer Dwight Stewart, Tanino also conceded his memory of what happened and when doesnâ€™t appear to match video surveillance tapes from inside and outside the Roxy. He said he was feeling the effects of alcohol but had his wits about him. The trial is several days behind schedule and if it fails to wrap up in the allotted time, it would likely be some time in the new year before it could resume. â€” with files from CTV News

LAST WEEK WE ASKED:
Do you think the transit police are doing a good job? Here’s how you responded:
Yes 23% No 77% REBUILT PATTULLO
Not so good for New West
t’s ironic that stimulus funding from senior governments, the large portion that’s being used for road work, appears to be grinding much of Metro Vancouver to a halt. So much for “getting things moving.” Wherever they go, drivers are plagued by traffic cones, reader boards, and heavy equipment ripping up roads and laying down new ones. In New Westminster, we’re either the “centre of it all” or the “intersection of the Lower Mainland”– but for drivers lately it’s the latter that rings true. On Monday, the traffic folks at WX1130 were encouraging drivers to call the City of New Westminster to complain about the chaos. Work at Tenth and McBride and in Sapperton had beaver-dammed the torrent of cars that rips through our city each morning, en route elsewhere. If all goes to plan, more congestion’s coming. Next month, TransLink will unveil more detail at open houses for its plan to replace the Pattullo Bridge by 2015. Of note is the proposal to remove the old Royal Avenue access from the west and make Front Street the new access on that side. The significance of this is the fact that it appears the downtown portion of the North Fraser Perimeter Road would be built at the same time. That’s big. And it means this: Chris • The waterfront portion of Front Street would be boosted from two to four lanes. • Some, if not all, of the waterfront parkade would need to be demolished Eugene Wat, the city’s manager of infrastructure and planning, says a TransLink consultant has been working on the details of this segment for about 18 months. It’s likely next month’s meetings will provide more detail on how this might work. “The Front Street parkade will be impacted,” Wat told me. It’s no wonder that downtown merchants are nervous.

Paying for poor service

QUESTION OF THE WEEK
the past few weeks have also been brutal for the folks in the Downtown, too, says Michael Hwang, Downtown New West BIA president. “We’re suffocating –you can’t get out, you can’t get in,” Hwang says, adding that his friends from outside New West have been telling him they’re avoiding the area. And with the Pattullo work on the horizon, his group is trying to turn anxiety into something proactive. “These are major structural changes.” The uncertainty about Front’s future is preventing new businesses from opening there, he said. So in an effort to create more certainty, he’s keen to work with the city and TransLink on some solutions. Or at least mitigation. “We don’t want to be sitting ducks – we want to start the conversation from our end.” For one thing, Hwang hopes the transportation engineers can be put to work finding some “relief valves” to ensure good traffic flow in and out of downtown. He gives the Hoover Dam as an example. That Depression-era project involved the construction of five kilometres of tunnels to divert the river before the dam could be built. When I put Hwang’s concerns to Wat, he said the city takes this seriously, and will be working hard to find alternate Bryan access for pedestrians and vehicles – but the city doesn’t hold all the cards. “We’ll certainly be advocating (with TransLink) for a mitigation strategy,” Wat said. Back to the big picture. Next month could be interesting. The North Fraser Perimeter Road has loomed large over the future of New West’s downtown for many years. Will it be encapsulated? Or will it further cut off Columbia from the waterfront, counter to one of the key goals – connectivity – outlined in the city’s Downtown Community Plan? We may soon get some answers.

No loss in Tax ‘benefit’ is less money for groceries UN snub I WAS ONE OF those terrible people who signed
WHEN I HEARD Canada had failed
to get a temporary seat on the UN Security Council, I was initially disappointed. After all, was it not Stephen Harper’s ambition to regain the international prestige so badly diminished under the Liberals? Predictably we are hearing the shrill if not jubilant voices of the opposition and other critics that Canada has suffered a horrible humiliation and slap in the face because of our bad foreign policy. The fact is Canada, under Harper and the Conservatives, have absolutely nothing to be ashamed of with respect to foreign policy. Support for Israel, our G8 initiative on maternal and child health care, continued peacekeeping initiatives and other principled human rights and democratic initiatives by this government are quite in keeping with our long history of making principle intrinsic in our foreign policy. The critics would be far more objective in criticizing the abysmal failure of the United Nations in Rwanda, Kuwait, Srebrenica, Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iran, the Congo and Gaza. The reality is the UN has become an incompetent and corrupt bureaucracy with little power to enforce anything remotely resembling justice, which makes temporary membership on its security council akin to meaningless. Canada has nothing to be ashamed of nor do the Tories need to apologize. It is the UN that should be blushing.
the petition against the HST. Then I listened to politicians from the B.C. Liberal party who said this tax was going to benefit everyone. Well, as a senior citizen on Old Age Security I would like to tell everyone what I have discovered, and that is: Today I went to the bank to
pay three bills and added up the HST tax on the three bills. It came to $20.49. So I have one major question for anyone who can give me an answer and that is: How is this going to benefit me? As any senior citizen can tell you, we cannot afford to pay money out for something that is not going to benefit us.
HAVING WITNESSED the craziness
being inflicted on 148 Street, having read some of Surrey’s consultation documents, and having talked to VACC (Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition), I can only imagine that the city has just ignored VACC’s common-sense suggestions. The accompanying photo clearly shows that a strip of pavement, about 18 inches wider than needed, has been removed to put in new curbing. This seems to be uniform practice from 96 to 104 Avenues on 148 Street. The replacement paving will leave a seam, a bump, an unevenness to plague cyclists, right in the middle of their new “lane.” It also means that taxpayers will be charged to replace the pavement strip that didn’t need to be removed in the first place. Why could the old asphalt not be cut carefully right to where the new cement curbing needed to be installed? This saves asphalt production, and makes a natural form to butt with the cement curb. As a senior cyclist who uses the route from 108 Avenue to 90 Avenue every day, I am really disappointed with the newly renovated 148 Street. I think taxpayers are owed an explanation of what seems a wasteful practice of construction that will leave conditions for cyclists much more difficult and dangerous than before.
Big cars via HST FOR THOSE PEOPLE who think the

HST is all bad, I’ve got good news. Before the HST, for any car over $55,000, the surtax (“luxury tax”) added one per cent to the PST, making it eight per cent. Over $56,000 the tax became nine per cent and for cars costing $57,000 or more the PST was applied at a rate of 10 per cent. This luxury tax has now been eliminated, and I’m sure you are just as thrilled as I am that all those fortunate car buyers who can afford gas-guzzling $57,000 cars have been granted a tax reduction. See, there’s always a silver lining. The only thing I can’t figure out is why the eco-friendly rebates on fuel-efficient cars have been eliminated. I can only presume that our air quality has miraculously improved with the onset of HST, so that incentives are no longer required. Good news, eh?
And what about all the people who live below the poverty line? Can they afford to pay out money for this tax when it could be used for groceries, etc.? I sure hope someone can explain this to me.

Evils just follow the money THIS REFERS TO letter writer Richard Griffin’s concern
on the casino in Newton. The majority of sensible people (especially those with kids) don’t want a casino, a brothel or a liquor store in their backyard, simply because all these businesses come with a spike in crimes and the youngsters getting addicted. The same thing happened in Vancouver and other urban areas where such businesses were allowed decades ago. People worried about their kids and about the peace in their neighbourhood. But greedy politicians never listened. Ultimately people had to move out to the still peaceful rural areas south of the Fraser River, such as Surrey, Langley, Coquitlam and Abbotsford. Politicians dodge every protest, every cry against
these businesses because they are fooled by the millions of dollars in tax revenues these businesses pay to municipalities. They turn a blind eye to the fact that the same municipalities spend a lot of money on counselling services for residents addicted by these businesses. Peace-loving citizens pay a lot more tax to the municipalities. So is there any logic in allowing a casino in my backyard? Like many others, I also moved in to Surrey (Newton) recently to keep my family away from the evils of gambling, alcohol, drugs and the sex trade. But as ill luck would have it, these evils followed us here. Now we are thinking where to go. Muhammad Younas, Surrey
RE: “SURREY residents pay $144 million to TransLink each year,” The Leader, Oct. 15. Isn’t it ironic that Vancouver wants to make the Olympic Village property tax exempt for two years but Surrey is expected to increase property taxes two to four per cent to cover transportation costs in Vancouver that are of no use in the Fraser Valley. Property taxes in Surrey just went up. I am paying $360 more this year than last, along with all the other taxes. Transportation minister Shirley Bond insists that the cities in Metro Vancouver buck up. Our taxes cover the cost of roads and bridges, which you again want us to pay additionally to use. In the valley, you need a car to get around as all transit is being upgraded in Vancouver although the population growth is in the valley. One way of cutting costs would be to take away all the vehicles, gas cards and free maintenance to government employees like Shirley Bond and have them all use transit. I would like to see TransLink board members and Shirley Bond use the transit system in the Fraser Valley to commute to work, take children to school and activities like hockey and soccer, and purchase groceries – and do it all on transit in a timely fashion. Perhaps, then these people would wake up and realize that Metro Vancouver also encompasses this side of the Port Mann Bridge. Better yet, it is time that Surrey broke away from Metro Vancouver and used the $144 million for its own transportation system.

The four men each face two counts of conspiracy to import cocaine and one count of possession for the purpose of trafficking.

SURREY CLOSE AND REMOVE THE DEDICATION OF HIGHWAY OF A PORTION OF ROAD ADJACENT TO 10161 THROUGH 10201 - 153 STREET BYLAW, 2010, NO. 17268 NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN of the intention of the City Council of the City of Surrey, pursuant to Section 40 and Section 94 of the Community Charter SBC 2003, c.26, to adopt “Surrey Close and Remove the Dedication of Highway of a Portion of Road adjacent to 10161 through 10201 - 153 Street By-law, 2010, No. 17268” at the Regular Council-Public Hearing meeting on the 1st day of November, 2010. The intent of the By-law is to close and remove the dedication of highway of 278.8 square metres of redundant road allowance adjacent to the west property lines of 10161 through 10201 - 153 Street. This closure is intended to facilitate the consolidation of the road with the adjacent lots as part of a commercial, retail and ofﬁce development application. In accordance with the Community Charter, SBC 2003, c.26, as amended, approval of the disposition of the road will be considered by City Council at a later date.
ED SCHELLENBERG would likely
still be alive today if the justice system did not take an “anything but jail” approach to dealing with criminals, his brother-in-law told a crowd attending a town hall meeting Tuesday night Abbotsford. Steve Brown said two of the four people killed in the Surrey Six slayings had “shocking criminal histories” and should have been in jail. Instead, they were among the four that became the targets of an alleged gang hit in which Schellenberg, 55, of Abbotsford was an innocent bystander, along with Surrey’s Chris Mohan, 22. Police believe Schellenberg and Mohan were killed because they were potential witnesses. The killings occurred on Oct. 19, 2007 at the Balmoral Tower apartment complex in Surrey. Brown criticized a system that he said is more focused on rehabilitation than punishment. He was joined in these sentiments by fellow speakers Abbotsford
Police Chief Bob Rich and retired provincial court judge Wallace Craig. “I’m convinced we’re the only jurisdiction in the world that has these prolific offenders out in the streets,” Brown said. Craig said judges in the past were “no-nonsense,” but in the last 30 years they have shied away from tough sentences. “That’s what they’re there for, and if they can’t cut it, they shouldn’t be there. They should go do civil cases,” he said. Craig said “rampant plea bargaining” and “sweetheart deals” have ensured that justice is not properly served for the victims of crime and that effective deterrents to crime do not exist. Rich said contributing to the inefficiencies is a complicated and fragmented system in which the federal government is in charge of the Criminal Code of Canada, while the provincial government is the administrator. “When you add that all up, what you have is two masters .... We have put no one in charge of our criminal justice system,” he
said. Rich said the system is “falling down under its own weight,” resulting in unbearably long delays in cases getting to court and reaching a conclusion. Even a simple impaired charge takes an average of two days in court, he said. When penalties are doled out, they are not enough of a deterrent to prevent future crimes, Rich said. He cited the example of a marijuana grow-op able to produce an annual gross income of between $500,000 and $1 million in an average-sized house. A first-time offender arrested for such an operation would face a fine of between $1,500 and $2,000, he added. Several of the more than 100 audience members said they were concerned about the lax justice system. Some were victims of crime themselves, while others sported T-shirts bearing the message “Revolving door makes judges accomplices” on the front and “100% contempt for BC judges” on the back.

Ditch idea of SkyTrain turnstiles, unions urge Poor use of transportation cash: Report by Jeff Nagel TRANSLINK should drop its mis-
guided and costly plan to install turnstiles on SkyTrain lines and instead spend the money improving actual transit service. That’s the position of unions representing transit workers who are lobbying for a rethink of the $171-million project, which includes development of a smart card payment system. They’ve tabled a report to TransLink that argues – as TransLink officials themselves did in the past – that adding faregates to the currently open-access SkyTrain stations will cost far more than they’re worth. “The ongoing costs – the operating and maintenance costs – will be higher than anything that could possibly be recouped from fare evasion and will come every year out of the annual budget,” said Andy Ross, president of local 378 of the Canadian Office and Professional Employees Union. TransLink rejected turnstiles in 2005 when it estimated they would cost $32 million a year to finance, staff and maintain, while only pulling in an extra $2.9 mil-
lion of the money previously lost to fare evasion. A 2008 fare evasion audit estimated 2.5 per cent of all transit users cheat, depriving the open proof-of-payment SkyTrain system of $5.4 to $9.3 million a year. TransLink’s board agreed to proceed with the smart card and faregates project after the provincial and federal governments promised $70 million to cover most of the costs of adding gates to stations. Those capital contributions mean TransLink won’t need to borrow to finance the gates, significantly reducing the annual operating costs, according to TransLink spokesman Ken Hardie. He could not say how close turnstiles will come to breaking even now. Ross contends TransLink still has no solid business case and shouldn’t proceed just because Ottawa and Victoria will front the cash. “This is a bad, bad use of public funds – I don’t care which level of government is paying for it. It’s soaking up badly needed transportation dollars.” Hardie said turnstiles will address the false but “very
strong” public perception that fare cheating is much worse than audits show, and ease concerns about crime and safety that deter some people from taking transit. “We’re committed to the project,” he said. Many passengers board without visibly buying a ticket, but when they’re checked, the vast majority have a valid pass of some sort or paid the fare on an earlier leg of their journey. Turnstiles may make stations harder to navigate, create lines as well as potential difficulties for passengers in wheelchairs or scooters. Ross said a smart card system could still be developed without turnstiles, noting that’s the model Calgary has chosen. Several mayors have also expressed concern about the wisdom of adding turnstiles, which will require extensive station renovations, particularly on the Expo Line. Ross said he’s also concerned about the impact on union jobs of giving the contract to design, build and operate the fare gates and smart card system to a private partner. firstname.lastname@example.org

eras will be installed in nearly 600 TransLink diesel buses starting next year at a cost of $6.5 million. The surveillance cameras are already in all the electric trolleys that mainly serve the City of Vancouver, but the expansion to cover at least half the diesel fleet will extend their influence across more of the region. Coast Mountain Bus Co. spokesman Derek Zabel said it’s believed the video capability is already helping reduce the number of violent attacks on bus drivers. “We’re seeing a significant drop in Vancouver on assaults, which we would attribute to the cameras,” he said. “It’s having a deterrent effect.” The number of assaults across the system is down 22 per cent this year, to 94 as of Oct. 4 compared to 120 at the same time in 2009. Zabel said the next rollout of video cameras will apply to diesel buses that are 2006 or newer. First, however, work must be done to upgrade the data
network to handle that much additional video being recorded, transferred and archived each day. Zabel said a later third phase will add video cameras to more buses and to 145 community shuttles. Each bus will have five to seven video cameras, including one facing forward to provide evidence in cases where a bus is involved in an accident with another vehicle or pedestrian. The cameras are not monitored in real time. Video recordings are kept for a week before being deleted, unless an investigation or complaint causes a segment to be retained. Zabel said bus drivers can press a button to bookmark the recording to help police quickly find a suspect captured on video. An image can quickly be transmitted to Transit Police officers in the field. The cameras are also proving useful for local police forces, he said, adding Coast Mountain video has aided the Vancouver Police Department on a number of occasions. “It also helps us in the courts
as well,” he said. “We can show the video footage of how the assault happened.” Video evidence is also helping determine fault in accidents, he said. Sometimes an accident happens ahead of a bus and the driver will flag the video for review, helping any future investigation. The technology has received mixed reviews from drivers, according to union spokesman Jim Houlahan. Video evidence is surfacing often when Coast Mountain is investigating complaints against drivers, sometimes leading to discipline, terminations and civil lawsuits. The recordings exonerate drivers about as often as they prove they were at fault, Houlahan said. The cameras are not infallible, he said, adding there are cases where the video didn’t capture the start of a confrontation that began off the bus and there are other situations where the recording angles or field of view don’t provide an accurate picture of what transpired.

transit companies. Under the “attendance management program,” employees who were considered to be off work too often would be warned, then given a maximum allowable number of absentee days with the threat of being fired for “excessive” absenteeism if they exceeded the limit any time over two years. The union complained the policy was applied “mechanistically” in a by-the-book approach that refused to recognize the situation of workers with chronic disabilities such as arthritis, diabetes and Crohn’s disease, and created unfair stress and anxiety in such people placed in the program.

The company was ordered to stop applying the policy to people with “chronic or recurring disabilities” and told to pay six employees $5,000 to $6,000 each for “injury to dignity, feelings, and self-respect.” The company appealed to the B.C. Supreme Court and won a ruling in 2009 that portions of the tribunal decision were “unreasonable,” in particular the declaration that the policy amounted to “systemic discrimination.” The Appeal Court decision reversed that ruling and reinstated the finding. The Appeal Court also reimposed a tribunal order against applying the policy to people with disabilities and ordered the company to pay the union’s legal costs.

Thanks to generous donations from grocery shoppers in the Lower Mainland and on Vancouver Island, we ﬁlled nine Craftsman Collision courtesy cars for the Salvation Army food bank – then matched the donations oneto-one to bring the day’s total to almost $32,000. That’s a big dent in hunger – and a little hope for needy families. Thanks to everyone who helped us make an impact.

Opposition calls for BC Rail inquiry
by Tom Fletcher
THE ABRUPT end of the BC Rail corruption trial
has the B.C. Liberalsâ€™ political opponents calling for a public inquiry into the tainted bidding
process that led to the largest sale of a public asset in provincial history.
NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING - MONDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2010 Additional information may be obtained from the Planning & Development Department at 604-591-4441. Copies of the by-law(s), supporting staff reports and any relevant background documentation may be inspected at the City Hall, Monday through Friday (except statutory holidays) between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. from Tuesday, October 19, 2010 to Monday, November 1, 2010. All persons who believe their interest in property will be affected by the proposed by-law(s) shall be afforded an opportunity to be heard at the Public Hearing on matters contained in the by law(s). Should you have any concerns or comments you wish to convey to Council, please fax to 604-591-8731, email email@example.com, or submit in writing to the City Clerk at 14245 - 56 Avenue, Surrey, BC V3X 3A2, no later than Monday, November 1, 2010 at 4:00 p.m.
Guilty pleas entered by former ministerial aides Dave Basi and Bob Virk on Monday came in a plea bargain that included the B.C. government agreeing not to attempt to recover $6 million in legal fees spent on their defence. Attorney General Mike de Jong told reporters his advice from senior staff was that Virk, Basi and his cousin Aneal Basi could not repay the debt after seven years of prosecution. NDP attorney general critic Leonard
Guilty pleas in corruption trial Krog said an inquiry could examine the reasons for the plea bargain, and compel testimony on a range of political questions that would likely not have been examined in a criminal trial. â€œWhich senior B.C. Liberal officials were involved in the sale of BC Rail?â€? Krog said. â€œWhat did the premier know and when did he know it?â€?
De Jong said a public inquiry isnâ€™t needed because the special prosecutor in the case had already searched the evidence and found that politicians were not implicated in Basi and Virkâ€™s activities. Both men pleaded guilty to leaking information about the BC Rail bid process and accepting money and travel from a U.S. railway company. That
ended the trial just before former finance minister Gary Collins was to testify. Other political hopefuls chimed in as well. Chris Delaney, spokesman for the newly formed BC First Party, said the plea bargain â€œsmells of interference.â€? Delaney has made similar allegations about government meddling into Elections BC in his capacity as organizer of the Fight HST petition and recall campaigns.
Please note that Council may not receive further submissions from the public or interested persons concerning these applications after the Public Hearing has concluded. Jane Sullivan City Clerk

Cities put port on property tax defensive by Jeff Nagel LOCAL CITIES could go
to court to try to force Port Metro Vancouver to pay back property taxes the municipalities say are owing. City of North Vancouver Mayor Darrell Mussatto, who chairs Metro Vancouver’s port cities committee, says the port has underpaid its local property taxes for years. Cities are demanding repayment of $10
million in back taxes as well as corrected payments going forward. Mussatto said the port pays property taxes based on lowballed assessments from private assessors it hires – not the higher B.C. Assessment Authority numbers the cities want used. A Supreme Court of Canada decision earlier this year found Montreal is owed taxes from its port authority and Mussatto said the ruling
could serve as a legal precedent here. But he said he’s optimistic both sides can agree on a new method of valuing port lands. “We believe we can come to an agreement with the port without going to that extreme,” Mussatto said, adding local cities are in active talks with the authority. A Municipal Port Property Taxation Fairness Commission appointed by Metro Vancouver recently
concluded port taxes need to rise in line with other municipal property taxes. It also suggests naming a dispute resolution panel to adjudicate disputes. Port Metro Vancouver said it has paid $5.3 million to the 16 municipalities for the 2009 tax year and contends it has now met all its past obligations for payments in lieu of taxation. Port president and
CEO Robin Silvester said cities are unfairly seeking taxes from the port on not just land but also on waterways it uses. In several cases, he said, cities want the port to pay tax on land where port tenants are already paying property tax. “Any municipal ratepayer would object to paying tax twice on the same property,” Silvester said in an Oct. 5 letter to Mussatto.

Mayors back minimum wage boost Nine Metro Vancouver mayors have called on the province to lift B.C.’s minimum wage to $10 an hour. Backing the idea in a joint letter with the B.C. Federation of Labour were Delta Mayor Lois Jackson, Burnaby’s Derek Corrigan, City of North Vancouver Mayor Darrell Mussatto, District of North Vancouver Mayor Richard Walton, Anmore’s Heather Anderson, Lions Bay Mayor Brenda Broughton, New Westminster’s Wayne Wright, Port Moody’s Joe Trasolini and Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson. B.C.’s $8-an-hour minimum wage hasn’t risen since 2001 and is now the lowest in Canada. “Low-wage workers face a constant struggle to find housing and feed themselves and their families,” Trasolini said. “The nine-year minimum wage freeze also stretches the resources of municipalities that must help provide services that low-wage workers simply cannot afford themselves.” Another dozen mayors from other parts of B.C. also signed the letter. Labour minister Murray Coell appeared
to signal a softening in the provincial government’s position on the issue in a forum with civic leaders Sept. 29, saying a higher minimum wage wouldn’t be a job killer and would be considered in the future.
Apps for water, parks New iPhone apps have been unveiled for Metro Vancouver Parks and to find public drinking water fountains or taps. Metro’s Tap Map app gives users a map of fountains or other publicly accessible spots they can fill up water bottles. It’s the latest tactic in the region’s push to encourage more people to use tap water rather than bottled water and reduce the number of plastic bottles tossed in the garbage. Users of other smart phones or computers can search “Tap Map” at metrovancouver.org to find the same information. A second iParks Explorer app from Metro gives users information on the 22 regional parks, including maps, directions, amenities and calendar listings of interpretive programs and other events. Both apps are free downloads from the iTunes app store.

making it very clear that her party is planning to actively drive recall efforts.” James has refused to comment directly on the leaked documents, describing them as one person’s interpretation of the meeting. She said Sihota’s comments have always been consistent with her own, that individual party members can get involved but the party would use no resources to help. The Angus Reid poll put Campbell’s personal popularity at nine per cent, down three per cent since September. That’s the lowest rating of any Canadian premier over the past two years in the company’s online surveys. The poll put NDP support at 49 per cent, up one point since September. The B.C. Liberals were down one point to 24 per cent support. The poll found 13 per cent support for the B.C. Green Party, and eight per cent for the B.C. Conservatives.
Campbell’s approval rating has plummeted to a new low, and seven out of 10 people surveyed in a new poll say they will vote to abolish his government’s Harmonized Sales Tax next fall. Survey results released on the weekend by Angus Reid Public Opinion show only nine per cent of respondents approve of Campbell’s performance, and for the third straight month the pollster found almost half of decided voters would choose the NDP if an election were held today. But despite that public support, Carole James is coming off one of the most difficult weeks of her seven years as NDP leader.

Oct. 7 after he published a constituency report that criticized the lack of policy specifics in her recent speech to municipal leaders in Whistler. And leaked minutes from an NDP executive meeting in September put James on the defensive about party members’ participation in the recall campaign against B.C. Liberal MLAs to protest the imposition of the HST. The minutes quote party president Moe Sihota urging NDP members to get involved in the recall campaign. “Our members can be aggressive in campaigns but can’t say it is an
NDP effort,” Sihota is quoted as saying in the documents, leaked by a party official to reporters last week. “We should set up as many participants in canvassing as possible in those constituencies that we can win.” The B.C. Liberals seized quickly on Sihota’s comments. “We now have proof that Carole James and the NDP were misleading the public when she said the NDP would not be involved in recall,” said Chilliwack-Hope MLA Barry Penner, the B.C. Liberal environment minister. “These internal NDP documents put the lie to that public commitment, while also

by Rick Kupchuk AN UNBEATEN record wasn’t
enough for Surrey United to win a Jubilee Trophy. United won three and tied one in four games at the national women’s soccer championship Oct. 7-10 in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, but had to settle for a third place finish at the eight-team tournament. Surrey tied for first place with Nova Scotia’s Halifax Dunbrack after round robin play, each team with a pair of wins, a 1-1 tie in their head-to-head match, and a 4-1 goal difference. But Halifax advanced to the championship game on a tiebreaker, while United played for the bronze medal, which they won with a 4-1 victory over Victoria of Alberta. Randee Hermus with two goals, Thorlakson and Chanelle Bradshaw tallied for Surrey in the playoff contest. Thorlakson and Natalie Halcro were the goal scorers in a 2-0 win over Quebec champion Verts de Sherbroke in the opening game of the tournament. United followed up with another victory in their second outing, riding a goal from Kate Qually to a 1-0 victory over the WSA North Stars of Manitoba. Needing a win to reach the gold medal game, Surrey was held to a 1-1 tie with Halifax, with Nicole Stewart netting United’s goal. Surrey netminder Teresa Nuttal earned a pair of shutouts. allowing just two goals in four starts. ■ Unbeaten in round robin play, Guildford United lost a pair of playoff contests and placed fourth at the under-14 boys national championship tournament in Moncton, New
Brunswick. Guildford stopped Stratford SC of Prince Edward Island in the first game of the tournament, with Brandon Pereira getting the hat trick. Bavi Dhaliwal and Jeevin Kang also scored for United. Nine players tallied in a 12-0 victory over the Yukon Strikers. Pereira, Dhaliwal and Joshua Tylor each had a pair of goals, with Obraj Khela, Matteo Birdignon, Jas Bains, Jalen Jana and Denzil Sharma netting one each. Tylor scored the Guildford goal against Quebec’s Ahuntsic Braves in a 1-1 tie. Guildford was edged 1-0 by Alberta’s NSD Rangers in a semifinal game, then closed out the tournament with a 7-1 setback against the Brampton Blast. Khela was the Guildford goal scorer. ■ Surrey FC Pegasus placed seventh at the 12-team under-16 girls national tournament in Vaughn, Ontario. Pegasus won its first and last games at the five-day competition, starting off with a 3-2 victory over the Bonivital Flames of Manitoba. Nav Samra netted a pair of goals for Pegasus, with Brittany Ambrose adding a single. After a scoreless tie with the Monteuil Extreme of Quebec, Surrey closed out the round robin with a 4-0 loss to the North London Galaxy of Ontario.

Drumming up a global following
En Karma ‘rips it up’ on stage; releases debut album by Chelsea Haeber
eople around the world can listen to them on the radio, download their music on iTunes, and watch their videos on YouTube – however, if you live in Surrey, there is a good chance you could bump into one of the members of En Karma, the region’s premier live bhangra band. Four of the six band members reside in Surrey, and Jatinder Paul Dhesi has lived here his whole life. Dhesi attended North Delta Senior Secondary and graduated from Queen Elizabeth Secondary in 1996. Like his bandmates, he was attracted to the group because they shared something in common: a love for bhangra, a traditional Punjabi form of dance and music. Members of the band don’t look like the punk kids who jam in the garage next door, and they appear nothing close to the bubble-gum pop singers of the mid-’90s. Yet they still make the ladies scream. The Indo-Canadian group is made up of mature young men who sport jeans, shades and groomed facial hair. The musicians started practising three years ago, but this past year, their careers have taken off. With more than 2,600 “likes” on its Facebook page and over 61,000 views of the hit song Tere Bina Nahi Nachna on YouTube, the musically gifted members are still modest about their growing success. “What we have done in the past few years has even surprised ourselves,” said Nick Chowlia in a thick British accent. This past year, the bandmates headlined during the Spotlight On India showcase at Canadian Music Week 2010, and had a nomination for Best New Artist at the 2010 Brit Asia Music Awards. They also performed at three shows during the 2010 Winter Olympics – one being at the Olympic Celebration Park in Surrey where they shared the stage with Shin, lead vocalist in DCS, a British-Asian bhangra band and a true inspiration to En Karma. This week also marked another huge milestone. While they released their debut album on iTunes earlier this year, last night (Oct. 21), they held an official CD release party in Vancouver.
It’s a busy time for En Karma, but one they’re relishing. Despite concert obligations, the band still makes time each week to get together and rehearse – a three-hour mix of strict practising and joking around. Dhesi provides a continual rhythm with the dholak, a large double-headed hand drum which is held up by a strap over his shoulders. His earliest bhangra music experience began with the Desh Bhagat Youth Club of Vancouver. It was during this time he became fluent in the world of hand percussion ion and musical composition. The self-taught musician has worked with artists such as Jazzy B, Hans Raj Hans, Sarbjit oti. Cheema and Malika and Joti. Playing guitar since the age of 17, Ricky Thinda grew up in Calgary, where he played guitar and lent vocals to various English rock bands. Although he initially mashe tered his guitar skills on the six-string electric, he madee ng a move to the more alluring he bass guitar that provides the a’s deep low-end to En Karma’s music. rful By listening to his powerful p of voice and impressive grasp Punjabi, you would never guess der that En Karma vocalist Inder ed in Kooner was born and raised ars ago he Abbotsford. Only a few years tling mat, was grappling on the wrestling h h and today his passion for singing ((which started out at family parties and for bhangra teams) has led him to the role of front man for En Karma. Coming from a musical family, Ravi Binning has been involved in bhangra culture since childhood. He plays the dhol, a two-sided drum with one side being high pitch and the other low. Since the age of 15, he has developed a unique “infectious style” of drumming which can be defined as the backbone to En Karma’s music. Anyone who has seen Binning perform would
agree he is the life of the party. Originally from the UK, Pip Dhaliwal has been playing drums and various percussion instruments since his early teens. Having performed in countless cities around the globe, Dhaliwal brings to En Karma experience and an unparalleled musical ability. He has worked with various artists and acts such as DCS, Manmohan Waris and Sukshinder Shinda. A keyboard virtuoso and producer from the UK, Chowlia spent much of his early years so making loud sounds on stage and in the studio. He has played in bands such as Achanak, A Apna Sangeet, and TSB Goldenstar. Chowlia is a host, a DJ and a produ producer on Red-FM. Leaving se the UK seven years ago, he came to Vanco Vancouver knowing a fistful of musician in the industry. musicians And the band’s knack doesn’t stop at music – friends have called them “artists and busin businessmen, ” and for good reas reasons. In addition to writing th own music and protheir d ducing their own songs, En Karma also takes care of their own marketing and d distribution. The un unique vocals and instruK mentals of En Karma have sparked a new generation’s interest in modern bhangra, yet the band has kept to traditional vvalues. Their lyrics, which are always sung in Punjabi, ge generally cover social issues h as llove, relationships, l h such money, dancing, drinking and marriage. The live band never performs the same show twice, yet what happens before the show never changes. “We get together for a quick prep talk, last words of advice and bring it in,” Chowlia said. “Then rip it up on stage.” Visit www.enkarma.ca to sample En Karma’s sound and view videos.

Kaplan (Chevelle, Trapt, The Gallows, Biffy Clyro). Combining melodic and experimental, heavy sounds through the use of odd time signatures, hook-laden bridges and brutally hardcore riffs, Quartered’s sound can best be described as gutsy and genre defying.

Each of the society’s volunteers have continued to do their part of this community service regularly ever since. “I think it is important to show appreciation to the members of our community who have been working together to make Whalley a better place,” said Bruce Ralston, MLA for Surrey-Whalley.

Surrey remembers the war years Museum and archives lectures during Veterans Week
AS PART OF Veterans Week, the Surrey Museum and the Surrey Archives are hosting three special programs to commemorate the sacrifices made by Canadians in both world wars. On Nov. 6 from 11 a.m. to 12 noon, Richmond author Anthony Cowling talks about My Life with the Samurai, the story of his 44-month ordeal in a Japanese POW camp. Cowling had just joined the RAF at 17 after lying about his age, when the Japanese captured him. Out of about 2,000 men, the now-retired police officer was one of only 300 survivors. “All I had was a spoon and half a coconut shell,” said Cowling. “I ended up weighing only 65 lbs.” He wrote his book to recount his experiences as he beat the odds against starvation and brutality. The cost is $3. Pre-register by calling 604-592-6956. On the same day, from 1:30-

DRESSING up in cos-
tumes, and enjoying treats and games are some of the best parts of Halloween for kids. However, children can also be at a higher risk at this time for preventable injuries like cuts from pumpkin carving, burns from fireworks, choking, falls, and injuries involving cars and trick-ortreaters. “Children should not be given gel candies or nuts until they are at least three years old,” recommends Alyson McKendrick, Coordinator of Safe Start, BC Children’s injury
prevention program. “When eating, parents should have children sit down and eat at the table since eating while playing, running, jumping, or talking can lead to a choking episode.”
More Halloween safety tips: • A costume should not be longer than a child’s ankles to ensure they don’t trip or fall while walking up and down stairs. Select well-fitting footwear and avoid high heels for young children. • Put reflective tape
on the front and back of costumes to make children more visible to cars especially if their costume is made of a dark, non-reflective material. • Makeup is better than masks, which can block vision. Test the makeup on your child’s wrist for 24 hours in advance to make sure there’s no allergic reaction. It’s best for a young child not to wear a mask or head piece that reduces their vision. • Inspect each Halloween treat bag carefully and remove any treats that look like they have been opened,
