resulted in $5,000 worth of school supplies being donated to a North Surrey elementary school. In 2009, then-eight-year-old Guadelupe Packer started collecting bottles for her video game fund. It turned into quite the enterprising operation for the youngster. She was raising $60 per month. That’s when Guadelupe’s parents – Cindy and Mike – sat her down to talk finances. “We said this is how we model our finances: We give a little bit to charity, and we put a little bit away for savings, and then we can go spend the rest,” recalls Cindy. Guadelupe mapped out her financial plan – 25 per cent for savings and 25 per cent for charity; the rest would be carte blanche. To fulfill the charity portion of her goals, Guadelupe canvassed her friends and family via email asking for donations of school supplies. The Guadelupe School Foundation was created the summer before the 200910 school year. See SUPPLIES / Page 3
Transit ridership soars TransLink can’t expand to keep pace without more cash by Jeff Nagel TRANSLINK IS on track for a record year of transit ridership, surpassing even the number of passengers carried in 2010, when the region hosted the Winter Olympics. But the high usage numbers are being tempered with a caution that the transportation authority is near the limit of what it can offer riders and needs a big and controversial package of upgrades if it’s to expand service and keep pace with rising demand.
The 114.4 million transit trips in the first six months of the year are four per cent more than in 2010. And if the April to June months are compared – to exclude the Olympic surge – ridership was up 13 per cent in the second quarter. Officials warn the gains are not sustainable if the public and regional politicians refuse to accept some combination of higher taxes and fees to finance expansion. LEADER FILE PHOTO

Injured raccoon sparks call for leg-hold trap ban
Supplies: Still time to help From page 1
Animal euthanized after being found in Guildford neighbourhood by Rick Kupchuk SURREY COUNCIL is being asked to take action after a raccoon was
discovered Sunday afternoon with a paw caught in a leg-hold trap in Guildford. The Association for the Protection of Fur-Bearing Animals sent a letter to Mayor Dianne Watts and council members Monday, asking the city to “ban the leg-hold, Conibear and snare trap.” Lesley Fox, executive director of The Association for the Protection of Fur-Bearing Animals, said the devices are hazardous. “Not only are lethal traps an outdated and ineffective form of wildlife control, they also present a danger to the community,” Fox wrote. Fox noted that under provincial law, traps can be set 200 metres from a dwelling. And while trapping is regulated provincially, under the Community Charter, B.C. municipalities have the authority to ban traps. The adult male raccoon was found by area residents on the floor of a shed in the 9700 block of 155 Street, the trap clamped on its This raccoon was found in front left paw. a shed in Guildford Sunday The animal was retrieved by the afternoon with a leg-hold trap Surrey SPCA and the Critter Care clamped on its front paw. Wildlife Society. “It’s hard to believe these are still used in this day and age,” said Gail Martin, founder and executive director of Critter Care. “The trap was clamped around (its) paw – almost cutting the paw in half,” said Martin. “The paw was just crushed and mangled. Infection was present all the way up to the elbow.” The raccoon had to be euthanized. The Association for the Protection of Fur-Bearing Animals is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible for setting the leg-hold trap. Anyone with information can call Adrian at 604-435-1850.

High school scholarship rules changed Surrey Board of Education chair says move is ‘progressive’ by Tom Fletcher and Tricia Leslie SURREY BOARD of Education chair Laurae McNally thinks a change made by the ministry of education is a smart move. B.C.’s high school grads were leaving millions in scholarship money on the table by not writing optional final exams, so the education ministry has changed the system to make sure the aid gets to students who do well on mandatory tests. “It’s like the ministry of education is finally catching up to reality,” McNally said. Optional scholarship exams for Grade 12 have been dropped for this school year, after post-secondary institutions changed their admission criteria and no longer use Grade 12 optional tests. Provincial scholarships will now be awarded to students based on the required provincial exams in place for Grades 10, 11 and 12. The exam system was changed in 2004 to reflect the different post-secondary pathways students can take. “I think this is a progressive move,” said McNally. “Now all the scholarship money is going to required exams only. That makes sense to me, because students

are not writing the optional ones, they are only writing the mandatory exams.” Once they were not counted for post-secondary admission, only one in five Grade 12 students chose to write optional scholarship exams. Provincial scholarships are typically $1,000, with the top 20 students receiving $2,500, and before the changes, B.C. used to give out about $5 million worth. Courses that now have required provincial exams are Science 10, Apprenticeship and Workplace Mathematics 10, Foundations of Mathematics and Pre-calculus 10, Social Studies 11, B.C. First Nations Studies 12, Civic Studies 11, English 10, English 10 First Peoples, French 12 and Communications 12. “B.C.’s exam program continues to be one of the most rigorous in Canada,” Education Minister George Abbott said. “Our students compete globally, and we know one of the best ways we can support their bright future is through a solid post-secondary education. “That’s why we’ve modernized our provincial scholarship criteria to better assist and reward students in their pursuit of higher education.” firstname.lastname@example.org
When September came, she was able to present her school, Royal Heights Elementary, with more than $1,200 worth of school supplies – from backpacks to glue sticks. That got the ball rolling for more fundraising efforts. Since 2009, Guadelupe, now age nine, has collected bottles from dance studios, gyms and individual households. In total, about $5,000 has been raised for the Guadelupe School Foundation. On the last day of school this past June, Guadelupe was presented with an “Awesome Kid Award” during an assembly at Royal Heights. “Well, I was quite amazed that they gave me an award, and I was surprised,” she says shyly. She adds it’s become quite a challenge storing her bottles. “In my dad’s garage, the bottles take up the whole garage,” she says. The teachers at Royal Heights are also included in Guadelupe’s charity work. Backpacks full of goodies and supplies await the teachers at the beginning of this school year. “Teachers don’t really look forward to going back to school, and they might be nervous, and they might want a treat to make them feel good after a bad day instead of a drink of wine or beer,” reasons Guadelupe. As for what she purchased with her own money? “I got a locket with a picture of me and my brother in it for my mom for Mother’s Day,” she says. The Guadelupe School Foundation is currently accepting donations of school supplies and/or bottles for the upcoming school year. For more information, visit gsfc.ca
Get on board ON AUG. 15, Staples – in part-
nership with Guildford Town Centre – delivered $18,000 worth of school supplies to the Surrey School District to kick off the seventh annual Stuff the Bus campaign. Stuff the Bus provides school supplies to less-fortunate students in Surrey. Donations are being accepted until Sept. 17. If you want to help, make a cash donation or drop off school supplies at Staples on King George Boulevard or Staples in South Surrey, or at Guildford Town Centre. These donations and school supplies will then be distributed by the Surrey School District to the schools and families that need it most.

Extra service? ‘Not going to happen’ From page 1 “I’m very concerned that we’re seeing this substantial rise in demand by more people for more transit at a time when TransLink has no ability to meaningfully increase capacity,” TransLink CEO Ian Jarvis said. Spokesman Ken Hardie said TransLink has been “optimizing” bus service by selectively trimming service on routes or at times where buses are underused and adding it where buses are crowded or more passengers can be attracted. That will continue to deliver minor efficiency gains, he said. “But the real large service increases are just not going to happen,” Hardie said. “We will not have the capacity to do that.” Area mayors are being asked to approve a $70-million-a-year increase in revenue – through a two-cent gas tax hike and other yetto-be-determined mechanisms.

Too many Turning a blind eye on St. Helen’s Park issue free bus rides COUN. LINDA Hepner says she has only heard
A RECENT editorial (“A radical tax
proposal,” Aug. 23) details the need to “find new funding for TransLink for much needed transit expansion without inflicting too much pain on already heavily taxed residents and motorists.” Increasing the property taxes of wealthier, out-of-province owners is one way of adding revenue, as is installing gates and turnstiles to stop fare evaders from riding the SkyTrain. However, there is another factor contributing to the budget shortfall of TransLink. I have a U-pass, so I ride the bus almost every day and I constantly witness bus drivers allowing people to get on without paying. It happens without fail every time I’m on the bus. Sometimes, the bus driver leaves the door open at the bus station while he goes to get a cup of coffee. On other occasions, drivers don’t even bother to check for transfers as people board the bus. Instead of looking at the people getting on, they simply face the other way or peruse their newspapers. On some occasions, the drivers do “check” for transfers but it’s really just for show. If someone gets on and says, “I don’t have any money, is it okay?” the driver, as I witnessed one do a few days ago, will simply look away saying “whatever, I don’t care,” and let them ride for free. Obviously, it’s infuriating whenever I see the driver let freeloaders ride the bus. This kind of behaviour is not unlike a cashier allowing people to go through a checkout without paying for their merchandise. I understand that drivers are trying to avoid possible altercations. Many drivers are assaulted every year, and TransLink does little if anything to protect them. Regardless, the drivers are paid to do a job and they ought to do the job right. If they don’t like their jobs, they can find a new one. There is no excuse for allowing freeloading parasites to ride for free while responsible riders pay the fare. It is completely unfair that responsible people must shoulder the burden of funding transit as well as making up for budget shortfalls through taxes and fare hikes. Increase taxes on the wealthy if you must, but please crack down on irresponsible bus drivers who allow fare evaders onto the buses. Oh, and in case any of these drivers happen to read this letter, let me ask them something. If you don’t think it’s important for people to pay for using transit, where do you expect the money to come from to pay your salaries? Mohammed Sahib, Surrey
Write to us
of two homeowners that have “misinterpreted” the bylaw restricting building size in St. Helen’s Park. The problem is that the city will do nothing to reverse the “misinterpretation,” while those citizens living next to it have their lives adversely affected. Why is it that only Couns. Judy Villeneuve and Bob Bose understand that the people that plan these homes know they can build well beyond what the bylaws allow without the threat of any action from the city? How is it that this group of
people get to ignore, then benefit, from this “misinterpretation” as they pay lower taxes because the city does not collect taxes for these expanded homes? Homeowners do not pay for inspections to assure a safe building, the workers hired to do these expansions may not be paid “above the table” for doing illegal construction, and then many of these areas are then rented without paying the required fees to the city. In the end, what happens to the neighbourhood? These new “neighbours” have alienated the people they live beside and created a great deal of
anger at the lack of action taken by the city. The South Westminster Ratepayers’ Association has worked hard to try to maintain a pleasant place to live, only to have Linda Hepner and the rest of the councillors turn a blind eye to this ongoing issue. If the bylaw has no fault, why did they put a freeze on covered deck construction? The city well knows that follow-up on these issues usually means no action will be taken. At least it does in my neighbourhood. Jill Singel, Surrey

met you, but wish I had. I didn’t always agree with you, but I knew you were sincere. You personified decency and compassion. Many of us have grown cynical about politics, but you were an inspiration. Your devotion to making Canada a better place for everyone will be your lasting legacy. We will miss your enthusiasm and your smile. Thanks for caring so much. Lloyd Atkins, Vernon
Showed us how to be civilized JACK LAYTON demonstrated his political skill in taking advantage of the opportunity provided by the Liberals and Bloc. He developed his party into a mass movement and used a combination of his popular support and behind-the-scenes intrigue to propel himself into the Official Opposition. Furthermore, he raised the profile of national socialism, showed how a modern “civilized” country could behave, and created a virtual certainty that he would be misjudged by opponents. His shoes will not be easily filled. William Perry, Victoria

RE: “A lesson in tolerance,” Letters, Aug. 23.
After reading Robert Gary Parkes’ letter I couldn’t help but see the irony in what he wrote. He stated that “the pride parade is a far cry better than some parades in Surrey,” referring to Vaisakhi parades. Standing up for one parade by putting down another does not illustrate a great example of tolerance, Mr. Parkes. Your one-dimensional focus on the unfortunate events that occurred at the Vaisakhi parades completely neglected the generosity extended to all communities regardless of religion, race or sexual orientation.
One of our great Canadians MANY POLITICAL strategists will judge Jack Layton’s achievements by the number of seats he won for his party over the years, but behind those electoral victories was a leader who remained steadfastly committed to his principles above all. I met Jack Layton shortly after his arrival in Ottawa as leader of the NDP and watched him in the years that followed as he became a good friend of the peace movement. He spoke up for diplomatic efforts and dialogue with insurgents to end the war in Afghanistan, years before it became a fashionable position. At the time, he was derided by his critics, taunted and called names by Conservative party members, and even had his patriotism questioned. But today, Layton’s vision is shared widely in capitals around the world as the only workable solution in that strife-torn region. There are many other stories like this where Jack endured shameful attacks from his political opponents while he stood by his principles. I am certain that Jack Layton will be remembered as second only to Tommy Douglas himself: one of Canada’s greatest Canadians. Steven Staples Rideau Institute, Ottawa
This is no different than people only focusing on the “overt display of sexuality” at the pride parade. I support the pride parade and agree if someone feels uncomfortable by it then he/she should not attend. The beauty of living in a country such as Canada is that we are able to experience an enriching mosaic of different cultures and beliefs without having to book a plane ticket around the world. Please refrain from making comparisons. Stating why one is better than the other is not what tolerance is about. Jashanjot Sandhu

While the weather has been warm enough for swimming at Crescent Beach, a lack of very hot days has reduced the number of forest ﬁres, and air quality alerts.
Cool summer keeps pollution, fires down Dearth of 30-degree days means no air quality alerts by Jeff Nagel A COOLER than normal
H E R I TA G E F A L L P R O G R A M S
Come to South Surrey!
summer has put a damper on holiday fun but it’s also left many Lower Mainland residents breathing easier. No air quality warnings have been issued this year, due to an absence of hot weather in the Lower Mainland
and an unusually low number of forest fires in the B.C. Interior. By this time last year, two air quality advisories had been issued spanning a total of six days. The hottest weather so far was last weekend – 30.6 degrees in Abbotsford Saturday and 27.4 in Vancouver.
But that was the first time Abbotsford topped 30 so far in 2011, according to Environment Canada meteorologist David Jones, adding there would usually be about seven 30-plus days by now. “That’s quite unusual,” he said. “It’s been a long cold spring, a slow start

to summer and a total absence of hot spells.” The cooler weather has been widespread throughout B.C., he said, adding that’s helped keep forest fires down and helped with air quality in Metro Vancouver. “You need heat waves and big ridges of unchanging stagnant air to get air quality issues,” Jones said. “And you need long stretches of hot dry air to create fire risk. We just haven’t had either of those this year.” Metro Vancouver air quality planner Julie Saxton said ozone concentrations tend to build when it’s hot and there’s lots of sunshine. Last year’s advisories were driven mainly by fine particulate from wildfire smoke, she added. “We’ve been very lucky this summer that we haven’t had poor air quality affecting us,” she said, but added a hot spell could still develop between now and midSeptember. It’s the slowest year in at least the last 10 for wildfires, according to B.C.’s fire information centre. So far 469 fires have burned 11,782 hectares. An average year sees B.C. fight nearly 2,000 fires and lose almost 100,000 hectares. As a result, B.C. has sent nearly 2,000 firefighters out of province this year to assist with fires in Ontario, Alberta and Alaska.

from their counterparts in Surrey to nab a pair of young thieves last Friday (Aug. 19) who rammed a police cruiser while making their getaway. Delta Police responded to a theft in progress call in the 400 block of Seashell Drive in Tsaw-

Fleeing from the first officer they deliberately rammed a second cruiser that had arrived to offer support.

Theft won’t stop Lions club
Movies Under the Stars goes on as scheduled by Rick Kupchuk THE SHOW will go on.
Earlier this week, the North Surrey Lions Club thought its fourth and final Movies Under the Stars at Holland Park would have to be cancelled, after thieves stole a van and equipment used to stage the show. But a loan of equipment from other Lions clubs, charitable organizations and businesses will allow the North Surrey group to stage its outdoor show as scheduled Saturday night. The North Surrey Lions Club has been showing the movies every Saturday in August for the past three years. Sales of French fries, hot dogs, popcorn, hamburgers and soda pop raise approximately $3,000 annually. The money is passed on to local
charities, such as the Surrey Food Bank, and the Mile of Toonies for Surrey Memorial Hospital. After last Saturday’s show in Holland Park – the third of four this summer – Lions club members packed roughly $10,000 worth of equipment into a Ford E150 van. Sunday morning, the van and the equipment were gone. “It was stolen some time between 7 and 10 a.m.,” said Glynnis Boulle of the Lions. The equipment – which included a popcorn machine, barbecue, tents, tables and generators – was stored overnight in the van outside Boulle’s home near 108 Avenue and 129 Street. It was to be unloaded Sunday afternoon. Boulle isn’t certain if it was the equipment or the van which was targeted, but the loss of both is a huge hit to the Lions club.
“We’re hampered without either,” she said. “Without the equipment, we can’t run the movies. Without the van, we can’t move the equipment.” The public is being asked to call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 with any information. A second charity also fell victim to crime over the weekend. Oak Avenue Neighbourhood Hub Society suffered a break-in at its offices at 12740 102 Ave. Co-chair Janice Lanigan said the agency, which supplies clothes to needy kids, runs seniors’ lunch programs and puts on community dinners, lost at least $1,000 in donations from its safe. “They broke in and made an absolute mess,” Lanigan said. “It’s a major blow when this happens to a non-profit.”
Suspect, possibly scorched, escapes on bike
AN EXPLOSION in a basement meth lab rocked neighbours in Newton Monday evening and left a plume of smoke and the sharp odour of chemicals hanging in the air.
Witnesses saw a white man in his mid-30s flee the area on a bicycle, while yelling at them to get away from the house in the 7200 block of 140A Street. An RCMP spokesman described the clandestine drug lab as a
“pretty small operation” with no apparent links to organized crime. The suspect, believed to be the basement tenant, had not yet been found, but police believe he may have suffered burns. The Surrey Fire

Salmon to be tested for Japanese radiation Feds scale back monitoring for Fukushima nuke fallout by Jeff Nagel RETURNING sockeye salmon will be tested to determine if this year’s run was contaminated by radiation picked up in the North Pacific from Japan’s Fukushima nuclear disaster. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) said sampling of salmon and other fish is already under-
way and will continue through August and September. The agency expects the tests, planned since June, will show radiation in B.C.-caught salmon is well below levels that would prompt federal action, but calls it a prudent measure to reaffirm its safety for both domestic and export markets. “We have tested air
quality, domestic milk and foods imported from Japan,” CFIA spokesperson Alice D’Anjou said. “No harmful levels of radiation have been detected, and we do not expect this situation to change when fish are tested.” Results are to be posted on the CFIA website as they become available.
“A massive amount of radiation was released...” Alexandra Morton Fraser River sockeye migrate far out into the Pacific, as far west
as the Bering Sea, although they were likely on their way back to B.C. when multiple Japanese reactors damaged by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami released radiation through the air and contaminated seawater. Salmon biologist and activist Alexandra Morton supports the testing.
“My feeling is yeah let’s check,” she said. “A massive amount of radiation was released into the water and air. There’s been radiation readings in seaweed in North Vancouver. I do think it should be investigated.” On Aug. 11, Health Canada removed nine extra radiation detectors that had been installed in B.C. and TELUS AUTHORIZED DEALERS LOWER MAINLAND Surrey Central City Grandview Corners Guildford Town Centre 13734 104th Ave. 12477 88th Ave. 7380 King George Hwy. 15940 Fraser Hwy.

the Yukon in response to the Fukushima disaster, saying radiation levels continue to be within background levels and there’s no cause for concern. An SFU professor who has also gauged radiation levels in B.C. and found nothing of concern supports Ottawa’s decision to scale back. “We haven’t seen any increased levels,” Kris Starosta said. “Monitoring is very expensive and time consuming.” Claims have circulated on social media this summer that authorities hid the true extent of Canadians’ exposure to Japanese radiation. One recent media report pointed to big “spikes” of Iodine-131 detected by a federal monitoring station at Sidney on Vancouver Island. For seven days in March, that station did measure Iodine-131 at readings at least 100 times higher than normal, according to Health Canada data. But Iodine-131 is just one radioisotope and a small component of the overall degree of radiation exposure B.C. residents get from various background sources. “The resulting dose from any radionuclides detected following the Fukushima event represents only a tiny fraction of the total background radiation dose that Canadians normally receive and does not pose a health risk,” Health Canada assistant deputy minister Hilary Geller said in a statement. A broader measurement of radiation exposure also posted on Health Canada’s website show the daily doses measured in March and April at B.C. sites remained roughly in line with the average readings from 2010. The Burnaby station measured total daily exposures between 0.47 and 0.54 microsieverts in the post-Fukushima weeks, compared to its average 2010 reading of 0.49. People get much more radiation from a dental X-ray (10 microsieverts), a crosscountry jet flight (30 microsieverts) or a CT scan (at least 5,000 microsieverts).

The shores of Surrey’s Brownsville Bar Park was ranked as the ﬁfth-dirtiest in Canada by organizers of the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup.
Local parks on list of filthiest beaches
Annual shoreline clean-up in September by Jeff Nagel THREE METRO Vancou-
ver parks have made a list of Canada’s most trash-infested shorelines. Kanaka Creek Regional Park in Maple Ridge was second-worst in the nation, according to organizers of the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. The fourth most littered shoreline was Tom Hopkins Ravine Park in Delta, followed by fifthplace Brownsville Bar Park along the Fraser
River in Surrey. The rankings were based on the amount of garbage collected during last year’s annual shoreline cleanup. Volunteers collected 5,000 kilograms of garbage per kilometre at the worst-ranked site, a creek in Sydenham Ontario. Kanaka Creek yielded 3,200 kilograms per kilometre, while Brownsville Bar yielded 1,200. “The amount of litter that was removed is remarkable and, if
neglected, could have serious impacts on the health of our waters,” said Tony Maas, director of the World Wildlife Fund’s Freshwater Program. The cleanest shoreline in B.C.? Terrace’s Ferry Island municipal park in the Skeena River. Volunteers are urged to register and nominate sites for this year’s Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup from Sept. 17 to 25.

Trains to run more often during peak times by Jeff Nagel CANADA LINE trains
will run more frequently and peak service will last longer with a bump in service that started Aug. 10. TransLink spokesman Ken Hardie said the increase from 14 to 16 trains running at the busiest times was planned and built into the operating contract with line builder InTransitBC. “There’s no incremental cost to TransLink,” he said. “It is happening on schedule.” But more people than expected are using the rapid transit line connecting Richmond, Vancouver and the airport. Ridership now aver-

“We’re about two years ahead of where we thought we were going to be,” Hardie said. TransLink expects a rush of new transit riders this fall when the U-Pass is extended to several

new post-secondary institutions, adding 60,000 more students with unlimited transit use built into their student fees. But Hardie said that wasn’t a factor in increasing the Canada Line service. New U-Pass students on the Canada Line will for the most part be taking it south to the Kwantlen Polytechnic University campus in Richmond, going in the off-peak direction where trains should be less crowded. Canada Line peak service levels will now run an hour later to 7 p.m. On weekdays, peak service will also start 30 minutes earlier, at 6:30 a.m. The Canada Line can currently run an maximum of 20 trains at once, so Hardie said there’s considerable room for further expansion as needed. The Canada Line handled more than 200,000 riders daily during the 2010 Olympics – which is credited for showing residents how to use the route and ramping up demand quickly. More frequent bus connections to the line out of South Surrey, White Rock and Delta are also helping draw new riders. email@example.com

Metro hears pitch for transit on the Fraser RiverBus would shuttle commuters between Langley and Richmond, with stops along the way by Grant Granger A FEW years ago, Jeff Malmgren was doing some consulting work on the River District area of Vancouver just west of Boundary Road where it’s expected about 15,000 people will eventually live. He began to wonder, “how are these people going to get around?” He also noticed while doing some work for the City of New Westminster on the civic centre how people were beginning to reconnect with the river. So why not, he thought, go back in time and use the river to get around? The result is the Fraser RiverBus Society, and he presented his concept to the Metro Vancouver regional planning committee last month. “There’s no good reason why it shouldn’t work from a transportation and social point of view,” said Malmgren. “It’s only been the last 80 to 90 years that we’ve turned our backs on the river and made it a back alley.” Malmgren is proposing four vessels with a projected capacity of 10,000 to 15,000 passengers per day could run up and down the river between Langley and Richmond, providing an efficient transit alternative for commuters. All the best transit links are for getting to downtown Vancouver, but there is a great deal of crosstown commuting that isn’t being served, he said. Malmgren estimates there are 55,000 who commute between the riverfront communities. “It takes a long trip on transit to get there and it goes through downtown which puts unnecessary pressure on the transit that is going downtown,” said Malmgren. Since cross-town commuting by transit is neither convenient nor comfortable, it’s likely commuters will continue to use their own vehicles unless something like a RiverBus is implemented, he added. People like the speed and privacy of the car, so the RiverBus would have to offer comforts such as wireless Internet, good seating, bike storage and hop on/hop off service, along with a pleasant ride on the water. Malmgren said the vessel that seems
most appropriate for a RiverBus is a hydrofoil catamaran such as those used in New York on the East River as well as Chicago and Washington, D.C. His group estimates
capital costs, including vessels, land infrastructure and start up, would be between $15.65 million and $20.4 million – far less than the West Coast Express initial capital costs, which it
says were $118 million. The operating cost is estimated at $1,000 an hour per vessel compared to the SeaBus, which is $675 an hour. The capital cost for waterborne transporta-
tion is always going to be significantly cheaper and so will the environmental costs, Malmgren said. Metro Vancouver directors asked the regional district’s staff
to investigate the proposal. “I thought there was some merit in it,” said New Westminster Mayor Wayne Wright. However Wright said the proposal “is a bit
too much” and suggested Malmgren work on a scaled back option. The society’s numbers need to be vetted and some research done to see just what might be viable, he added.

Port expansion talks to reveal concerns What wil be the impact on transportation, the economy and agriculture?
by Christine Lyon WHEN IT comes to another Deltaport expansion, local residents want to know more about its potential impact on transportation, the economy and agriculture. That’s according to a summary report released by Port Metro Vancouver based on public feedback from a series of preconsultation meetings.
The proposed Terminal 2 project, part of Port Metro Vancouver’s Container Capacity Improvement Program, would add another multi-berth container terminal at Roberts Bank. With an expanded capacity of two million TEUs (twenty foot equivalent units) per year, the port authority anticipates the addition would meet growing import and export

demand in the Pacific Gateway. In June, 73 people attended seven preconsultation meetings which focused on topics residents want to discuss during the consultation phase. Facilitated by Kirk & Co. consulting firm, the sessions were held in communities across the Lower Mainland. Three of the discussions took place in Ladner and
Tsawwassen. According to the summary report, meeting attendees in South Delta want to know more about the impact of moving goods in containers through Ladner and Tsawwassen and what road, rail and ship infrastructure might be needed to support increased operations associated with the proposed project.

provincial government over the expropriation of part of Pacific Spirit Regional Park that was handed over to the Musqueam Indian Band in 2008. Twenty-two hectares of the park in Vancouver near UBC – worth an estimated $200 million – was taken from Metro without compensation and transferred to the Musqueam to settle a lengthy court dispute between the band and the province. Mayors from Metro’s member cities feared the land raid set a possible precedent for the province to confiscate other regional or civic parks or public lands to satisfy aboriginal demands or to negotiate future treaties. Metro lawyers had argued the province violated the Local Government Act when it expropriated the park land without adequately notifying or consulting the regional district. The B.C. Supreme Court previously rejected Metro’s court challenge, finding there is no legal force behind principles contained in the act that require notice and consultation for provincial actions directly affecting regional district interests. The Appeal Court upheld the earlier decision, but said it’s “regrettable” the province included the principles in the body of the act, rather than in the unenforceable preamble, if Victoria intended them to be merely aspirational goals without any legal punch. Madam Justice Mary Newbury said it’s “unfortunate” if regional districts have relied on those principles and “can do little to help develop a positive relationship between the province and regional districts.” Provincial government officials have said the court challenge was a waste of money because Metro had always been on notice the lands provided to create Pacific Spirit park could eventually be withdrawn to settle unresolved native land claims. The regional district Johnny Carline received title to the former UBC endowment lands in 1989 for $1 with the understanding it might someday be returned to the Musqueam. The transfer of two per cent of the park to the Musqueam was not to conclude a treaty but rather to settle claims that the province failed to adequately consult the band in the sale of the UBC golf course lands and over the development of the River Rock casino at Bridgeport. Victoria also paid the band $20.3 million and transferred the 59-hectare golf course from UBC to the Musqueam on condition it be used for golf and not be developed until 2083. Metro Chief Administrative Officer Johnny Carline said the appeal cost Metro about $20,000. The next step is up to the board – which could still opt to appeal the case to the Supreme Court of Canada. A separate Metro court challenge is still to be heard by B.C. Supreme Court, in which Metro argues the province had no constitutional jurisdiction to expropriate the land. Carline said it’s still unclear whether more park land could ultimately be bargained away by the province to First Nations. “At one point we thought it was understood parks weren’t on the table,” Carline said. “Now it seems provincially owned parkland may be on the table. In the case of Pacific Spirit park, we’re not sure if it’s a straight one-off case because of the specific circumstances or whether it’s a precedent and municipal parks may be on the table.”

Eagles on the ice
The B.C. Hockey League’s regular season doesn’t begin for another month, but the Surrey Eagles kicked off its training camp this week at South Surrey Arena. The players have been on the ice for morning practice sessions since Monday, followed by daily scrimmages in the afternoon. The Eagles play their ﬁrst exhibition game of the year Friday in Coquitlam, against the division-rival Express. The Eagles have 38 prospective players in camp, less than in past years. “We have a lot of returning players, especially at forward, plus we brought in a few players, too, so there aren’t as many spots (up for grabs) as maybe there have been some other years,” said Eagles coach Matt Erhart. “So we just ﬁgured we keep the numbers down a little bit.”

Soccer pair at national camp A PAIR OF local soccer players are at the national under-17 women’s team camp in California. Jasmine Mander of Delta and Surrey’s Kajal Parmar are in Carson, California for the 11-day camp, which is part of the selection process for the team which will compete at the Under-17 Women’s World Cup in Azerbaijan. The camp began Saturday, and will include a pair of international games against Japan on Aug. 26 and Aug. 29.
Fourth for Kabush Alison Kabush of Surrey was part of a Canadian team which placed fourth in team competition at the Boccia World Cup in Belfast, Ireland earlier this week. Teamed with Paul Gauthier of Vancouver and Montreal’s Bruno Garneau, the Canadian group lost 4-3 to Portugal in the bronze medal game in the BC3 category, a game which was decided in the last end. “This loss not only made us realize our potential but it also made us stronger as a team and as individuals” said Gauthier. “We leave this tournament knowing that we are getting better even if there was no hardware to show for it.” Individual competition began Tuesday.
SportAbility, in partnership with the city of Surrey, will host the event on Nov. 26. The Showdown is to promote the sport, and raise funds to support and development community sledge hockey programs. “By registering a team to play in the round robin sledge hockey tournament, you are not only supporting community disability sports, but also allowing SportAbility to develop and integrate our sledge hockey programs into more communities across the province,” said a SportAbility press release.

Port Mann/Highway 1 Improvement Project Permanent TraďŹƒc Pattern Changes and Construction: Abbey Drive and 100 Avenue in Surrey As the construction of the new Barnston Drive Overpass continues, two permanent traffic pattern changes will occur in the coming weeks as follows: August 26, 2011, access to and from Abbey Drive at 176 Street will be permanently closed. September 6, 2011, access to and from 100 Avenue at 176 Street will be permanently closed. Access to Pacific Academy School will be via 104 Avenue or the 160 Street Interchange. The 176 Street Interchange and Barnston Drive are being redesigned and reconstructed to minimize traffic on local streets and provide future connections to the South Fraser Perimeter Road and the Golden Ears Bridge. The new Barnston Drive Overpass, which is scheduled for completion in mid-to-late November, will improve traffic flow between the neighbourhoods on the east and west sides of 176 Street and help to improve safety by preventing highway traffic from using local roads.
For more information, or to sign up for construction updates via e-mail, please visit the PMH1 Project web site at www. pmh1project.com, call 1 866 999-7641(PMH1), or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org

But both times, the Brantford Bobcats erased a deficit, and went on to post a 4-3 win in 10 innings in the final game of the Under-19 Canadian Womenâ€™s Fastpitch Championship Sunday in Winnipeg. â€œWe lost, but at the end of the day it was a gold-medal performance by the team,â€? said Storm head coach Kim Wright. â€œThey kept battling hard for 10 innings, and wouldnâ€™t give up. â€œI asked the team before the game to leave everything they had on the field, and walk off at the end with no regrets. They did that.â€? The two rivals were tied 2-2 after the regulation seven innings, until Sammie Olexa homered in the top of the 10th to put Surrey back in front. The Bobcats quickly fought back with a single from the leadoff hitter to start their half of the inning. One batter later, another single tied the contest, and an error left the baserunner on third base. Two intentional walks loaded the bases, setting up the
winning run on an infield hit. The Storm broke a scoreless tie in the top of the sixth inning with a two-run single from Janelle Smith. The Bobcats responded in the bottom half of the frame with a two-out, two-run home run. Surrey shook off a slow start to the tournament. After two
â€œ...at the end of the day, it was a gold medal performance...â€? Kim Wright straight losses, they won five in a row to finish among the top four teams going into the double knockout playoff. They began their playoff run with a 5-3 win Friday over the Guelph Gators, with Jaycee Affeldt driving in the winning and insurance runs with a twoout double in the fifth inning. Affeldt was also the winning pitcher, striking out 10 batters and not issuing a walk. Surrey then lost a 2-1 decision to Brantford Saturday afternoon,
giving up both runs on a fourthinning home run. Facing Guelph again in a semifinal contest Sunday morning, the Storm earned a second shot at Brantford with a 3-2 win. Tessa Loewen and Affeldt were tied for the team batting lead in the round robin, each going fivefor-14 for a .357 batting average. Affeldt led the tournament with three doubles. â– The Surrey Storm â€™97 and Delta Heat â€™97 were both eliminated after two playoff games at the Under-14 Fast pitch Jamboree Aug. 17-21 in Vaughan, Ontario. The Heat won their first five games of the competition, losing their sixth and final game of the round robin to place second among nine teams going into the double knockout playoff. Delta was upset twice on Saturday, losing 3-2 to the third place Mississauga Hurricanes, then getting blanked by the host Vaughan Vikings 2-0. The Storm went 2-4 (won-lost) in the round robin, and with a seventh place finish in the round robin, went into the playoff just a loss away from elimination. Surrey won their first game 7-3 over the Brampton Blazers, then were defeated 4-2 by the Guelph Gators.

Renegades are national champions Bantam team wins gold by Nick Greenizan THE WHITE Rock
Renegades ’95 went undefeated through five days of competition at 2011 Bantam Girls Canadian Fastpitch Championships last week in Winnipeg, capturing the national title with a 7-3 victory over Ontario’s Ajax Raiders in Sunday’s gold-medal game. White Rock was led in the championship tilt by Sara Groenewegen, who not only earned the win by pitching a seveninning complete game with five strikeouts and no walks, but also hit a two-run home run in the third inning to extend her team’s lead to 3-0; Groenewegen was also responsible for her team’s first run when she singled home Toryce Westgard in the first frame. Andrea Sidor and Westgard also had RBI for the Renegades, and shortstop Cheyanne Head was 3-for-4 at the plate, with two runs scored. The national crown is the fifth for White Rock coach Chuck Westgard, who four times led the Renegades’ 91 to Canadian titles. Earlier this summer, many players from that ’91 team helped guide the Renegades senior ‘A’ team to a national title in Montreal, under head coach Wayne King. White Rock advanced to the finals after again beating Ajax – for the third time in the tournament – 4-3 on Saturday night. That game needed eight innings to decide, with White Rock breaking the 3-3 deadlock in the bottom of the eighth when Groenewegen singled in the winning run. Head had the other two runs-batted-in in the contest, and Brooke Anderson pitched all eight innings for the Renegades, striking out six. Heading into the tournament, Renegades ’95 coach Chuck
Westgard said how his team performed in their first two games – against the two tough Ontario seeds – would be indicative of whether or not they’d be contenders for the title. It’s safe to say they passed the test. White Rock opened the tournament Wednesday with a convincing 10-2 win over the Brampton Blazers, then followed up later in the day with a 7-0 shutout of Ontario’s top-seeded Ajax Raiders. White Rock got off to a great start against Brampton, scoring nine runs in the top half of the first inning, thanks to a handful of singles, three consecutive doubles – from Sydney Brown, Toryce Westgard and Cheyanne Head – two Brampton errors, a walk and a wild pitch. The ’Gades tacked on another run in the second. Pitcher Tori Belton was credited with the win, going four innings and striking out six. Against Ajax, the two teams were scoreless until the fourth inning, when the Renegades went up 1-0 on an RBI single from Madison Tomkow, and then broke the game open with six more runs in the fifth. Third baseman Andrea Sidor and first baseman Aldyen Krieger each had doubles in the game, while Head lead the way with two RBI. Pitcher Groenewegen went the distance for White Rock, striking out eight through five innings, while allowing just one hit and walking a pair. On Thursday, White Rock continued its round-robin roll, beating Saskatchewan’s Southey Eagles 10-1 and the Calgary Diamond Devils 10-2. Both Belton and Groenewegen again picked up victories in the pitcher’s circle. Friday morning, White Rock moved to 5-0 with an 8-0 shutout over Calgary Kaizen ’95.

to the page Young author tackles the topic of bullying with the written word by Maria Spitale-Leisk
lizabeth Ababio could have been cruel right back to the bullies who taunted her. Or, she could have cowered. Instead, “Lizzie” got creative and penned her feelings in the hopes that others would heed her message of how anyone can overcome adversity. “I think [the bullying] started in Grade 4, but I never realized it,” she recalls. “Either I ignored it or I just didn’t notice. People were laughing whenever I walked in the room.” Elizabeth felt so tormented that she started faking illness to avoid going to school. Luckily, she was able to talk to her mom and a counsellor at her school about her plight. “I’ve always looked to my mom for support – as well as teachers that I trust – and family,” she says. Now, whenever she senses she is being bullied, Elizabeth stands up for herself and it stops immediately. The 16-year-old Frank Hurt Secondary student has written a book titled Problems: BFF. “It just came from a bunch of stories that my mind put together,” Elizabeth says. Adolescent love is the central theme of her manuscript. Conflict arises in the novel in the form of a love triangle. A teenage girl, Sam, discovers she has feelings for her Elizabeth Ababio best friend Derek. That’s when Mandy shows up and tries to steal Derek away. Sam then pulls out all the stops to thwart the budding romance. The book also contains a sub-plot about a principal who doesn’t like one particular student. Elizabeth says the story is entirely fictional and is not based on events in her life. And in her mind, the novel is set in and around Surrey – even though there are no specific identifying factors. Did watching movies or observing her peers help develop the book’s characters? “Probably,” she says. Elizabeth also informally polled her friends during and after school about what their biggest problems were as teenagers. The top concern? “If we would find a boyfriend,” says Elizabeth. “We decided it’s best to be introduced through friends.” Elizabeth’s mom, Millie Ako, encouraged her daugh-
“I’ve always looked to my mom for support – as well as teachers that I trust – and family.”

Sixteen-year-old Elizabeth Ababio used real-life experiences and interviews with her friends to help create Problems: BFF, a ﬁctional novel that explores teen angst.
ter’s writing with a special coming-of-age present. On her 16th birthday, Elizabeth learned her mom had found a publisher for Problems: BFF. The cover illustration of two best friends linking arms was also created by Elizabeth, who is drawn to the arts. She has taken drama in school, and will soon be studying creative writing. So far, 45 books have been sold, with $2 from each sale benefitting B.C. Children’s Hospital. “I thought if I want to donate to any charity that I can, I’d rather donate to the children of the future,” says Elizabeth. Her second novel promises to be equally as juicy as Problems: BFF.
“It’s one of my favourites,” she says. The plot follows a girl named Tammy who has a string of boyfriends who always dump her for the same girl. Tammy then winds up falling in love with Chris, who she meets at a McDonald’s restaurant. When she introduces Chris to her family, her dad nervously says they can’t date. Why not? Because Chris could be Tammy’s half-brother, Elizabeth says. Readers will follow along as Tammy investigates her dad’s affair. “She turns into a mini-sleuth looking for clues.” Problems: BFF is available at amazon.ca.

Surrey Mountie returns from Arctic relief duty
Surrey RCMP Const. Jeff McMichael came across bowhead whale bones (above) and trekked to work on an ATV (below) during a month of relief work at Repulse Bay, Nunavut.

Horsemen step in for cancer HORSEMEN, management and staff at Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino all played a role in this year’s Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer, raising $11.1 million for the BC Cancer Foundation. A total of 2,879 cyclists gathered at Fraser Downs Racetrack to launch the journey of over 200 kilometres that finished at Marymoor Park in Redmond, Washington. “The Foundation is extremely grateful to all the volunteers, crew members, riders and their supporters,” said BC Cancer Foundation President and CEO Douglas Nelson. “The funds we have raised will have a significant impact on cancer patients and their families c throughout the province and will help bring us closer to achieving our vision of a world free from cancer. ” c With last year’s host venue Guildford Town Centre not available because of conC struction, structio Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino stepped in to help. Horsemen gave up the use of the training track to provide additional parking due to the high volume number of participants. Stephen Bain, regional manager of food and beverage for Fraser Downs Racetrack and Hastings Racecourse, spearheaded the cyclists’ send-off. “We were proud to be a part of the third-annual Ride to Conquer Cancer event,” said Fraser Downs general manager Ken Stratton. “We will be there next year if the BC Cancer

ith wide travel comes wide responsibility. “You are the wildlife officer, fisheries officer, driver’s licence instructor, substitute teacher. The list goes on and on.” That’s how Surrey RCMP Const. Jeff McMichael described his experience working and living in the high Arctic for the past month. The officer, who works on Cloverdale’s Neighbourhood Liaison Unit, recently returned from Repulse Bay, Nunavut where he was stationed at a two-member detachment. “I decided to try it after speaking with other officers in Surrey that had already done it and always thought that it would be an amazing experience,” said McMichael. The Surrey RCMP regularly sends officers to detachments such as Nunavut to perform temporary relief work where they experience the challenges that go along with policing in remote locations. This unique training opportunity benefits both detachments: The northern communities receive an officer with a special skill set that they can impart on the community or pass on to those who are currently stationed there. The Surrey RCMP in turn receive a more well-rounded officer with a wider breadth of experience. “I admit that I was nervous about what to expect, having only policed in the largest detachment in the RCMP,” said McMichael. “After arriving there and experiencing what the North had to offer, I knew that I made the right decision. The amount of files that you get is considerably less then in Surrey, however, you are more then just a police officer that responds to calls. You wear a lot of hats in the North.”
Songs of yesteryear, today NUTONES CHOIR wrapped up another
season of song, singing the Golden Songs of Yesteryear to their peers in the Surrey area. There were smiling faces and many joined in to sing their favourite songs with the choir. Who remembers “K-K-Katy”, and “By The Light Of The Silvery Moon?”, or loves to hear “Over The Rainbow” and “It’s A Lovely Day Today?” Nutones has an extensive library of music from which musical director Uldean Wade draws their program. Pianist Deenie Lussie accompanies the choir and soloists. New members are welcome to the choir, which is based at the Newton Seniors’ Centre, 13775 70 Ave. On the program for next year is “It’s a Long Way to Tipperary” for Remembrance Day and “Carol of the Bells” for Christmas.

FAMILY ANNOUNCEMENTS 7
TIMTIMAN, Gordon Grant
October 7, 1939 – August 21, 2011 Diane passed away peacefully with family at her side August 21, 2011. Predeceased by her husband Gordon in December 2003 and brother Grant. She is survived by her loving family, son Kirk (Joanne), daughter Kelsey (Sean); grandchildren Sebastien, Kylie, Katelyn & Avery; her mother Elizabeth, brother Gillen (Bonnie), sister Leslie (Norman), many nieces & nephews and friends. Diane was such a positive force, she had a zest for life that was infectious and her strength and faith were inspiring. Her passion in her life was her family. She was an amazing daughter, wife, mother and Grammie. Diane also dedicated 23 years as a Director for the Royal City Youth Ballet Company. She will be remembered for her vision, leadership, integrity, heart, belief in people, courage, inspiration, faith, elegance and love. We were all blessed to know her and be part of her life.
It is with great sadness that the family of Gordon Grant Timtiman announces his passing on Friday, August 5, 2011. Gordon will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 54 years, Uldine (Dene); two daughters, Terrill (Ron) Boruta and Linda (John) Boruta; four grandchildren; Ryan (Allise), Adrian (Taeya), Megan, and Lindsey, Sister; Dorothea Kennedy; niece, Pamela Kennedy and nephew, Leonard Titford. Gordon was born in New Westminster, BC and grew up in the Lower Mainland, graduating from Mission High in 1955. After several years working in a sawmill, Gordon decided to return to UBC where he completed his education by receiving his teaching degree. During his career, he not only made many close friends but influenced numerous lives. Armed with a passion for teaching and a wealth of knowledge, his students affectionately called him the original “Mr. T”. Upon retiring in 1992, he moved to his property in paradise, Tappen. Gordon loved his “circle” of family and friends, music, reading, gardening, and the joy of life. Not only was he a great mentor but believed “doing things today will create memories for tomorrow”. Success of his loved ones was his greatest pleasure. He was our “Commander in Chief” whom we cherished and will miss forever. A celebration of Gordon’s life will be held on Sunday, September 18 at 2:00 pm at Ron & Terrill’s home.
