It was on display during an assembly Tuesday morning at the Cloverdale school.

Medical transcription eyed More than 130 Fraser Health employees could be out of work by Kevin Mills MEDICAL TRANSCRIPTION staff in the Lower Mainland are facing an uncertain future. A proposal could displace 131 full- and part-time workers (including 73 employed by Fraser Health) as well as 34 casual employees. Fraser Health, along with Providence Health Care, Provincial Health Services Authority and Vancouver Coastal Health, are planning to redesign their transcription departments. The proposal examines the possibility of outsourcing the service. The change is expected to save more than $3 million annually.

As part of providing care, physicians often dictate (voice record) the outcomes of a patient’s visit. Transcription services staff type this information into electronic documents, which become part of a patient’s medical records. Currently, there are different computer systems, standards and processes for delivering transcription services. Discussions are currently underway with the Hospital Employees Union (HEU) and the B.C. Government Employees Union to identify opportunities for efficiencies within existing resources. See TRANSCRIPTION / Page 5

Surrey man to death in 2009 gave a prepared statement in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster Tuesday, saying he’s disgusted with his behaviour and the tragic results. But the family and friends of victim Sam McGowan, the man the teen stabbed to death on a Surrey street two years ago, don’t buy it. Wearing a collared white shirt, black pants and a blue tie, the youth faced Justice Laura Gerow and read from a piece of paper. Standing up straight, his brown hair cut short, the teen – who cannot be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Sam McGowan Act – told the court that what happened on Aug. 5, 2009 “was very terrible and tragic.” “I am disgusted with the way I behaved...it’s something I’m going to regret for the rest of my life,” he said, his back to the public gallery. “Above all, the life of a man who was loved and cared for was lost. My actions...caused his death. I am responsible.” The teen, who was 14 at the time of the killing, is now 17. On that summer night in 2009, See McGOWAN / Page 3

Family faces driver accused of killing parents Ravinder Binning charged in 2008 fatal crash; pleads guilty to separate driving offence by Kevin Diakiw THE MAN CHARGED in the hit and run death of two

Surrey seniors in July 2008 pleaded guilty this week to another driving offence that happened eight months later. Ravinder Singh Binning appeared in Surrey Provincial Court Tuesday facing charges of flight from a police officer, impaired driving and obstruction of a police officer. He pleaded guilty to all three counts. The March 15, 2009 incident occurred just months after another, fatal crash for which Binning stands accused, which caused the deaths of Dilbag Singh Badh, 61, and his 60-year-old wife, Bakhshish Kaur Badh. On July 12, 2008 a speeding car struck another in the Newton neighbourhood of Surrey, then rear-ended a vehicle carrying the Badh family, including Dilbag, Bakhshish and their daughters, Rupi and Varinder. They were returning home from a wedding rehearsal for Rupi, who was at the wheel. Dilbag and Bakhshish died at the scene. Varinder was sent to hospital with fractures and inter-

nal injuries. Rupi’s injuries were less extensive, but still serious. Two years after the crash, Binning was charged in July 2010 with two counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death, one count of dangerous operation of a vehicle causing bodily harm and one count of failure to stop at the scene of an accident. Since then, the Badh family has fought for the creation of a vehicularhomicide law. Vehicular-homicide laws currently exist in the U.S., but not in Canada. Varinder Badh was at Binning’s trial Tuesday (Dec. 6), and said although it was a separate incident from the one that killed her parents, there was KEVIN DIAKIW / THE LEADER satisfaction in hearing his plea. Ravinder Binning leaves Surrey “He finally has admitted guilt... Provincial Court on Tuesday.

hopefully – now acknowledging how his behaviour can and has harmed others,” Badh said. She pursued him as he left the courtroom. “Are you a coward?” she asked as Binning walked away. “Be a man. You have no idea of the grief you have caused.” She said later that confronting him felt like an important step. “We wanted to make sure that he knew we weren’t going anywhere and that we were going to continue advocating for this,” Badh said. “His failure of acknowledgement is the frustration.” Binning is back before the court Dec. 16 for sentencing for the 2009 incident. kdiakiw@surreyleader.com

McGowan: ‘He’s a hero, not a vigilante’ From Page 1 he and a friend committed two robberies, stealing cellphones from another pair of teens, on of whom was Sam McGowan’s son. McGowan, 42, chased the youth and found him under a porch. The teen, whose defence lawyers said he feared for his life because others were also chasing him, plunged a knife into McGowan’s chest, killing him. The killer was initially charged with second-degree murder but in June, a jury found him guilty of the lesser charge of manslaughter. During trial, he also pleaded guilty to two robbery charges. On Tuesday, the teen told the court his life has changed since the night McGowan was killed. “I was forced to change and became a different person,” he said. “I can’t say sorry enough to the family. I acknowledge and accept full responsibility and I apologize.” Earlier, defence lawyer David Tarnow argued for a lenient sentence for the teen, pointing to the fact he has abided by all of the conditions set at bail, including maintaining employment, studying high school courses and engaging in positive extracurricular activities. Tarnow said the youth should also get credit for time already served. “He is remorseful...it is clear Crown is grasping at straws (by asking for a three-year sentence, the maximum for man-

slaughter under the YCJA),” Tarnow said. “His rehabilitation is ongoing.” Tarnow said the youth had worked at McDonald’s and framing houses and has received nothing but positive reports from his employers. The defence lawyer asked the judge to consider the teen’s maturity level at the time of the stabbing compared to now. “He has shown he can be a responsible person in the

community,” Tarnow said. “To incarcerate this young man at this stage is counterproductive to him...” Tarnow asked Justice Gerow to impose an Intensive Rehabilitative Custody and Supervision order as a sentence, with only one day in custody. On Monday, Crown prosecutor Jodie Harris argued for the maximum three-year sentence – an 18-month jail term followed by 18 months of community supervision, with six to 12 months served concurrently for the robberies. Gerow put the matter over for sentencing on Jan. 27. Michelle Proulx, McGowan’s girlfriend, walked out while the teen read his apology, but returned to court to hear when sentencing will happen. “I’m pissed,” she said outside. “Nothing he says will change anything. We’ve waited and waited and now we have to wait some more. He’s probably going to walk.” Proulx’s daughters, Madison, 10, and Miqueilla, 14, said McGowan was not a vigilante. “Sam had the biggest heart. He just wanted to stop him (from stealing the cellphone). He’s a hero, not a vigilante,” Madison said. “(The killer’s) apology means nothing to me. He killed Sam. You don’t go walking around with a knife.” Miqueilla agreed. “Someone that great is gone. Sam was the best. The best!” she said. “If (the killer) gets three years – if that – our family has to live without Sam for the rest of our lives.”

Mountie sues RCMP Elisabeth Couture claims she was harassed and subjected to fear and intimidation by Kevin Diakiw AN RCMP OFFICER based in Sur-

rey is suing the province, federal government and three Mounties, alleging she was harassed and controlled in an atmosphere of fear and intimidation at E Division’s regional office in Newton. Elisabeth Mary Couture filed a civil suit in B.C. Supreme Court on Dec. 1 against the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General, the Attorney General of Canada and three RCMP officers. Couture alleges her troubles began in May, 2009 when she got a job at the Drug and Organized Crime Awareness Service (DOCAS). It was there her superiors allegedly told her she should not engage in “idle chatter or gossiping” and should not speak with her colleagues without approval from her superiors. Couture also alleges her superior “questioned her about her personal and social consumption of alcohol” and was told that the management team abstains and

expects the same from DOCAS members. The civil claim alleges that her field trainer was speaking with his daughter, who referred to Couture as “the crazy lady.” The officer, knowing Couture overheard, laughed about the things kids say. He then called his superior on speaker phone to report the incident, whereby the superior allegedly laughed and said Couture “should be nicknamed ‘CB’ for Crazy Beth,” the statement of claims states. The civil claim also says she was told by a superior that “she was ‘too wordy’ and that she must communicate with her supervisor in one minute or less.” In 2006, three years prior to her time at DOCAS, she was diagnosed with essential tremor syndrome, a progressive neurological disorder, characterized by shaking arms. The condition can be made worse by stress and heightened emotion, the civil claim states. “During her time at DOCAS, Couture developed a habit of

clenching and grinding her teeth while sleeping, resulting in dental disorders and a need for dental work,” reads the claim. “The members of the management team and RCMP acted with the object of causing harm to Couture, in particular, by alarming her and attempting to destroy her self confidence and autonomy so she would be more responsive and more readily comply with the management team’s directions.” After her time at DOCAS, Couture developed a generalized anxiety disorder, reads the claim. “Couture hoped to have a long career with the RCMP,” the claim states. “As a result of her generalized anxiety disorder, Couture will be unable to return to work with the RCMP.” Couture is seeking general, special, punitive and aggravated damages. None of the allegations have been proven in court and a statement of defense has not been filed. kdiakiw@surreyleader.com

HEU spokesperson Mike Old said the two sides will meet next week for initial discussions on the proposal. He said a notice was given to the union and the workers stating that “they have an intention to basically contract out the service.” “We have no idea what they are looking for. The only thing they have said is that they need to save some money.” Old added contracting out is not the best option.

eather is a wondrous thing. It’s no wonder people talk about it all the time. Recently it was the wind, blowing like the bejeezus, making the rain a weapon. At our house, it was like someone pelting pebbles against the windows and siding, and I slept nary a wink. Riding my bike to work last week, the headwind was a cursed foe. Muscles ached as I worked the pedals. Walking would have been faster. Yet a tailwind is a joy, like being propelled by a benevolent hand. Few things affect our moods like weather. Music may be a close second, but the elements and their whims have an uncanny ability to take us from agony to bliss, and all the stops in between. For those who care to stop and enjoy, it can bless us with wonder. A few Fridays ago, a massive gust blew through our area, lasting about five minutes. I was in my office at the time, facing a wall of windows. In what seemed mere moments, the sky turned from grey to a roaring river of Chris fluttering colour. It was pure inundation, like a swirling murmuration of starlings feathered with gold, copper and bronze. The nearby cottonwoods seemed eager to show their winter bones. And then, as quickly as it started, there were just a few stray leaves. Then nothing. It was awesome. I had never seen anything like it. A child would have known what to do in this whirlwind. It called for giggles, a dance with nature as wind was made flesh. And just as weather amazes, it energizes and calms. With its cool touch, as we step out of our muggy fall homes, it invigorates. In fall, as true West Coast weather takes hold, it provides a backdrop for comfort. While the outside world is dark and deep with cloud, in black and tattered shrouds of ash across the sky, away

At 19 on the French Atlantic coast, warm and safe, watching the sky light up over the Bay of Biscay with some new friends. Years later, on a Utah desert highway, paranoid, trying to remember if rubber tires provide safety from electrocution. And later still, with my future wife on an evening walk, taking refuge from the rain beneath a canopy of trees at a local park, watching the devil’s pitchforks light up the distant sky, grateful for a show that feels staged on our behalf. In winter, the snow brings delight. Always best when it arrives in evening, before thoughts turn to morning commutes, when we are warm at home, watching it drift beneath the street lamps. The city is quiet, the blanket of white softens the canvas, Bryan simplifies, purifies the landscape, blurring the lines between yard, sidewalk and street as people walk down the road, pulling a child on a sled, dust off a pair of cross-country skis, turn their driveway into a toboggan run. And of course, there is always the joy of the sun. Even before dark winter departs, we are granted those days of bliss when it warms our cheeks, giving our moods, our entire days, a lift. And in time, next spring, there will be a day when we emerge from our homes wearing something light, just a shirt, perhaps. It is neither too hot, nor too cold. But just right. And for a moment, we forget about the weather completely. Chris Bryan is editor of the Burnaby and New West NewsLeader, Black Press sister papers of The Surrey Leader.

Surrey/North Delta Leader 7

Newton colours tacky after dark I AM GENERALLY in support of the efforts of the City of Surrey to decorate public spaces and streets at Christmas time, but I have to question the choice of decorations for 72 Avenue between King George Boulevard and 138 Street. The city has erected large brightly illuminated decorations down both sides of the 72 Avenue. Normally I would be commending their

efforts, but not after seeing the gaudy colours of the concentric rings of lights making up these large decorations. The dominant colours are pink and purple. The street now has more of a resemblance to a South Asian wedding or New Orleans Mardi Gras than it does to Christmastime. Then it occurred to me, it’s not politically

correct to celebrate Christmas anymore so this must be to recognize Diwali or Hanukkah. I’m not sure what the intention was but I do know that after dark the display will surely get one’s attention but it won’t be bringing back memories of Christmases past, and that’s a shame. D. Allen

It’s time to end the violence

I

t is hard to believe that Dec. 6 marked the 22nd anniversary of the Montreal Massacre of 14 women students at L’Ecole Polytechnique. At this time of year we must remember these young women who were gunned down by one man. It is a time to remember all women who have died at the hand of violence. It is a time to take action to support those women who live with violence to take steps to protect themselves and their children. We must recognize the tragedy of violence against women and the need to work together to stop violence before it starts. It is our collective responsibility to work toward a better world. Through my involvement in the community, I have worked with community organizations, business, media and women’s groups to bring the impact of violence and the identification of violence into the fore. During this time we must also reflect on some of the progress that has been made in our fight to stop the violence. Funding to support transition houses, second stage houses and Children Who Witness Abuse programs, to name a few, go a long way to ending this pandemic of violence. It is our collective effort that will help us to have a society that eliminates violence against women in all its shapes and forms.

Intersections need help Thank you, Bajwa recently submitted a letter to The Leader concerning safety at a particular intersection (72 Avenue and 124 Street). To me this shows one of the huge problems with roads and intersections everywhere in Surrey: Bad design. There is as much need to keep traffic flowing smoothly and safely as there is to keep pedestrians safe. Should this intersection be truly that busy and dangerous, then right-turn lanes must be installed in all four directions, no matter how short and narrow they end up being; this can be done without any significant property acquisition in all directions. Volume counts in 2009 (on the City of Surrey website) show that the section of 72 Avenue between 120 and 128 Streets carries between 32,000 and 33,000 vehicles daily. That means it is one of the busiest

roads in the city, competing with other busy roads such as 88 and 104 Avenues, King George Boulevard, Fraser Highway and Scott Road. A lack of right-turn lanes has been a significant problem at many other locations throughout the city; this is especially a problem where right turns are popular at an intersection where there is only a single lane for both through traffic and those turning right and frequent pedestrian movement. The intersection of 156 Street at 100 Avenue is a great example. A lack of right-turn lanes in the south-bound direction often causes congestion. Among other problem intersections is the one four blocks north, 104 Avenue and 156 Street, which hosts what could be one of the most overused left-turn lanes in the city and is a mess for both traffic and pedestrians. Were it not for

IT HAPPENS every winter – power

outages because some car smashed into a transformer, a tree fell on power lines, etc. Every winter B.C. Hydro staff have to spend hours in the cold, wet weather to fix the problem and restore power. Why not hide the power lines underground instead? That way, the problems of power outages are greatly reduced and Hydro staff can do something more productive. If B.C. Hydro had done something 10 years ago, by now all the power lines in all of B.C. could be out of sight. Instead, the crown corporation spends billions on smart meters. These meters will not be able to prevent or reduce power outages. So every winter these problems will persist. The meters may be smart, but the top brass at B.C. Hydro certainly are not. M.

SURREY CITIZEN Quratulain

Bury cables below ground

a flag person employed by nearby Harold Bishop Elementary School, many children who cross the street would be in danger from the vehicles that frequently run the yellow lights at this dangerous and extremely poorly designed intersection. There needs to be an immediate review of the several roads and intersections in the City of Surrey that are both dangerous and having to handle more than their designed capacity. I’m not saying that our roads immediately need more lanes. I do think though that if the city cannot bother spending extra money into improving safety and capacity at our roads and intersections, or there’s no room left to expand, then Surrey immediately needs to move for the construction of competitive rapid transit, such as SkyTrain.

Santa Claus

DEAR SANTA,

You must know it has been a long time since I last wrote to you asking for a Christmas present. This time I am writing to thank you for continuing to be the wonderful elf you have always been. One Christmas Eve, a very long time ago, I was determined to stay awake until midnight, your stated arrival time. Snug in my bed, I listened and listened for the sound of sleigh bells and a scrunching of snow on our roof. In spite of my keen anticipation, I drifted off to sleep. In the morning I knew your sleigh had landed on our house because you had left one present for me and one for my brother. When my wife and I became parents, we were delighted to share in the Christmas excitement you inspired in our children. By looking at the world through their eyes, we were drawn back into your make-believe world. We now have a granddaughter and once again we are enjoying your ageless Christmas magic. Thank you, Santa! Have a wonderful Christmas, you certainly deserve one. Lloyd Atkins, Vernon

Road work beneficial RE: “TRANSIT REPORT puts cart before horse,” The Leader, Nov. 28. When we look at the benefits to Surrey motorists and transit users, what’s often missed is the fact that many residents (myself included) are heavy users of the major arterial roads and the integrated transit network beyond our city’s borders. While we acknowledge that we’re playing “catch-up” in terms of building out transit services south of the Fraser, it should be noted that TransLink’s road and transit investments all over Metro Vancouver provide a direct benefit to the majority of Surrey-based commuters who leave the city on their trips to work or school each day.

‘Duplicitous’ action costs realtor $258K Surrey agent ordered to pay reimbursement after selling house from under buyer by Tracy Holmes A REAL ESTATE agent

who sold his own South Surrey property out from under another buyer has been ordered to pay $258,000 plus interest and special costs for breach of contract. In a judgment released Monday, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Randall Wong describes the behaviour of defendant Hwang Soo Lee as “shocking” and “outrageous.” “His acts of duplicity and deceit in regards to the Khullar contract was beyond belief,” Wong states. Kundan and Puja Khullar first filed suit against Lee, his wife, Kyung Hee Hwang, and New Star Realty Ltd. in 2009. Wong dismissed liability against New Star. According to the judgment, the claim arose after the Khullars negotiated to buy a house at 3575 Morgan Creek Way in January 2009 for $740,000. Lee requested a deposit of $100,000, with $20,000 to be paid to the realty company and $80,000 to be paid directly to him. The Khullars initialed agreement. Three days after a Jan. 19 deadline to accept the offer had passed – and despite an earlier verbal agreement to purchase – Lee met with the Khullars’ real estate agent asking

to delay a requested house inspection and if the Khullars would walk away from the contract, the judgment states. On Jan. 21, 2009, Lee and Hwang agreed to sell the property to another couple for $779,000. Two days later, Lee delivered an addendum to his contract with the Khullars, attempting to increase their purchase price by $80,000, the judgment states. According to the judgment, Lee testified his property had been listed for sale intermittently between 2007 and 2009 without success, and that the Khullars’ offer was the first written offer he’d received. He also testified that he needed another $36,000 to close the deal and transfer clear title to the Khullars. Despite phone records indicating otherwise, Lee denied speaking with the Khullars’s real estate agent before receiving the accepted contract, and only took issue with the delay and deposit monies after the Khullars filed suit, the judgment states. Wong found there was a binding contract between Lee and the Khullars, and that Lee breached the contract by failing or refusing to complete; failing or refusing to provide access to the property for inspection; and selling the property to a

third party. “For an extra $39,000, Mr. Lee was prepared to scuttle the prior Khullar contract,” Wong writes. “Mr. Lee’s duplicitous behaviour was highhanded and outrageous. Since he was also negotiating in his role as a realtor in the sale of his own property, his actions were not only surprising and unprofessional, it was simply dishonest, with extremely disappointing results to the Khullars.”

Reinforcement for riot squad Another suspected Surrey rioter charged by Tricia Leslie THE VANCOUVER Police Fugitive Task Force is step-

ping in to help the Integrated Riot Investigation Team (IRIT), the RCMP and Vancouver Police Department announced Wednesday. “We won’t be backing off this investigation and neither have the public,” said Insp. Les Yeo. Members from the VPD task force will help IRIT investigators arrest suspected rioters who have been formally charged and have outstanding warrants. Meanwhile, more riot charges were approved by Crown Friday, say police. Surrey resident John Sawicki, 19, now faces two counts of mischief over $5,000, participating in a riot and arson. Yeo said the public still provides three to four tips a day regarding the riots. Visit the riot website at https://vancouver.ca/police/riot2011/index.html

The $258,000 award includes $81,000 for “opportunity loss and comparative functional difference” between the house the Khullars wanted to buy from Lee and the one they later bought two doors down; and the $177,000 price difference between the two. The nine-day trial was held in Vancouver. Judgment was handed down Dec. 2, and posted online Monday. tholmes@peacearchnews.com

A couple who were in the midst of buying this house when it was sold to another buyer have been awarded $258,000 in B.C. Supreme Court.

by Tricia Leslie IT’S TIME TO end violence against women. As people across Canada and in Surrey mark the 22nd anniversary of the massacre at Montreal’s École Polytechnique with candlelight vigils and other events, the message that it’s time for violence against women to stop is loud and clear. Fourteen women were killed by gunman Marc Lepine and another 13 injured when he went on a shooting rampage at the school in 1989, targeting the women before killing himself. Lepine reportedly blamed feminists for ruining his life. At Kwantlen Polytechnic University campuses in Surrey, Cloverdale, Richmond and Langley, students remembered the massacre and supported the need to end violence against women at noon Tuesday with candlelight vigils and speakers

to honour the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. On Tuesday evening, another candlelight vigil was planned for Surrey’s Holland Park, sponsored by the Public Service Alliance of Canada Vancouver Regional Women’s Committee. Surrey-Green Timbers MLA Sue Hammell, who attended the Kwantlen event and was scheduled to speak at Holland Park, said it is important to remember the massacre and to support ending violence against women, as well as committing to a more equitable society where women are treated fairly. “The effort to eliminate violence continues, but we’re not there yet,” she said. “We just have to look around – Surrey, B.C., the interior, the Highway of Tears, the missing women from Vancouver’s downtown East Side ... attitudes need to change.” newsroom@surreyleader.com

Helping Surrey’s homeless LINKLINE provides tool to help people out of the cold by Kevin Diakiw BUSINESSES are being asked to help the homeless duck out of the cold this year. The Surrey Board of Trade (SBOT) is reminding its members about a new tool to help connect people without shelter to the services they need. Originally operated by the Newton Advocacy Groups Society, LINKLINE is now run by the Surrey Board of Trade. Business people are encouraged to call LINKLINE at 604-589LINK (5465) when they see a homeless person in need of help. That line will dispatch social service workers to the location given to them by the caller. A number of local agencies, community service organizations, and volunteers are taking part. Outreach workers will come on site to a business location and remedy the situation for businesses and coordinate access to services for people who are homeless. So far it has been extremely successful, and during the cold snaps, LINKLINE gets about 10 calls a week. Those calls are coming from business owners, RCMP and others. “Even from the homeless themselves,” said SBOT CEO Anita Huberman.

She adds that neighbouring communities are also calling to find where they can get access to the social services. LINKLINE is a nonemergency number, available 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (After hours, businesses can call 604-3403899). Instructions for users are fairly straightforward and include the following three steps: 1. Call the LINK Line 604-589-5465 (LINK) 2. Describe the location of the homeless person 3. The LINK Line operator will contact the outreach worker for that area. The outreach worker will make contact and offer services and shelter.

Bradley Thomas Antrobus, who has a lengthy criminal record, pleaded guilty last week to one count of arson in connection to the May 28, 2010 blaze. Two months ago, after a preliminary hearing of the evidence in Surrey Provincial Court, Antrobus was ordered to stand trial in New Westminster Supreme Court to face the arson charge. However, after his guilty plea, his case was moved back

to Surrey, where he is connection with a sepascheduled to be senrate April 2010 incident tenced on Dec. 15. in Surrey, for which he The Delta pub was is also scheduled to be featured on the silver sentenced Dec. 15. screen in the 1988 Police described Oscar-winning movie Antrobus as a “prolific The Accused.

TransLink eyes accessibility Improvements at bus stops Black Press IT CAN BE DIFFICULT to get around

with a disability. Citing the recent (Dec. 3) International Day for Persons with Disabilities, TransLink is looking at the accessibility at bus stops throughout the region. To make a bus stop accessible, the stop must be able to accommodate wheelchairs, power chairs and walkers, with a proper ramp and landing pad. For a bus route to be deemed accessible, 25 per cent of the stops on that route must be wheelchair-friendly, as well as the corresponding stop in the return direction. Under those criteria, all of TransLink’s routes are now accessible, but work is continuing, said TransLink

public information officer Drew Snider. Municipalities are responsible for identifying stops that need to be upgraded and TransLink and the municipality split the cost. Snider noted that since the Access Transit Secretariat was established in 2008, large strides have been made in increasing the number of accessible stops. For example, Surrey’s TransLink routes were only 62.4 per cent accessible in December 2008, compared to 71.9 per cent now. Delta went from being 32.7 per cent accessible at the end of 2008 to 48 per cent accessible last month. Surrey and Vancouver are tied for having the greatest number of accessible bus stops (72 per cent). newsroom@surreyleader.com

ICBC rates rising Basic rates going up by $68; optional rates lowering by Jeff Nagel MOST MOTORISTS will

pay ICBC about $27 more in premiums next year, but the bite will be deeper for those who opt only for basic insurance. Basic premiums will rise $68 or 11.2 per cent per customer if the B.C. Utilities Commission approves the public auto insurer’s proposed rate hike. Optional premiums will be $41 lower on

average, or six per cent. It reflects a continuing pattern of ICBC reducing the cost of its optional insurance – where it faces competition from private insurers – relative to the basic package, where it has a monopoly. President and CEO Jon Schubert said the two rates should be looked at in combination, because most motorists buy all their coverage from ICBC. The combined

We now unfortunately face a different reality.” Jon Schubert premium hike works out to an extra 2.1 per cent, lifting the average amount most motorists pay from $1,277 now to $1,304. Individual rates vary

depending on claims history, vehicle type, region of the province, years of experience and level of coverage. “After four years of not having to increase our rates, we now unfortunately face a different reality,” Schubert said. “We’re not happy that we need to increase our rates but the majority of our customers will be paying just a few dollars more, on average, than they did in 2008.” He said the drop in optional rates was possible mainly due to declining auto crime and damage claims. Overall claims costs rose $200 million in the first nine months of 2011. “We have seen increasing pressure, in particular, from bodily injury costs,” Schubert said. Bodily injury costs are to hit $1.7 billion this year, up $350 million from five years ago. Low interest rates due to the global economy have also pushed investment income down.

Police say they’ll continue to bust impaired drivers, despite court ruling last week POLICE ARE not going

to reduce roadside counterattack checks, despite a recent court ruling. After a B.C. Supreme Court judge ruled last week that the most severe of B.C.’s new impaired driving penalties infringe on people’s constitutional rights to a fair trial, Public Safety Minister Shirley Bond announced police in the province won’t impose the toughest of the new roadside penalties until drivers are given a way to appeal the results of a failed breath test. But E-Division RCMP Supt. Norm Gaumont said Monday that little will change. “We will absolutely not be reducing counterattack roadside checks,” Gaumont said. “Nothing’s changed here. We still don’t want people to drink and drive. Let’s keep up the good work.” Gaumont said evidence shows that roadside prohibition is effective, noting police have seen a 50 per cent drop in alcohol-related deaths in the Lower Mainland, and are on par to finish 2011 with less than 100 alcoholrelated fatalities – something he can’t remember seeing in a long time, if ever. In 2005, there were 180 such deaths in Metro Vancouver alone, so seeing major drop can only be good news, he said.

“Now, we’re just back to where we were before the new laws came in. I don’t think (the drop in alcohol-related deaths) will change,” Gaumont said. In his ruling, Justice Jon Sigurdson said the increased penalties for blowing in the “warn” range of 0.05 to 0.08 per cent, are permissible. But drivers who blow in the “fail” range above 0.08 should have a chance to challenge the decision if their vehicles are impounded for 30 days and they face thousands of dollars in administrative penalties, Sigurdson said. Gaumont said the government has indicated it will be looking to amend the year-old impaired driving law and that the RCMP is looking forward to working with them as they review the judge’s decision and amend the new rules. In the meantime, police will revert to the old roadside impair-

ment rules, which means impaired drivers can still face a 90-day administrative driving prohibition and can still be charged criminally if they are driving while under the influence of alcohol. The newer penalties – which Sigurdson did not immediately strike down while he awaits submissions from the province and the driver challenging the new rules – are more strict, allowing police to give drivers with a blood alcohol reading in the “warn” range a three-

“Bring in this ad to Marks Pharmacy for $5 off”

day driving ban, a $200 administrative penalty and another $250 fee to have a driver’s licence reinstated. Drivers can also have their cars impounded for three days and be billed for towing and storage. For roadside readings of 0.08 per cent or higher, police have been imposing a 90-day driving ban, a $500 fine and impounding the vehicle for 30 days. That suspension can cost a driver $3,750 for such things as towing, storage and a mandatory “responsible driver” course. Gaumont said he doesn’t want to see anyone killed by impaired drivers, whether the new rules stay in effect or not. “Make sure you have a safe way home and don’t drink and drive,” he said. — with files from Tom Fletcher

The rest comes from public support. The CCD, located in North Surrey, has been helping children with complex and severe developmental disabilities since 1953. It has more than 2,000 clients from Surrey, Langley, White Rock and Delta, and is the only Commission on the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF)-accredited pediatric outpatient medical rehabilitation facility in Canada. Many of the children at the centre have enduring disabilities and health issues. While hospitals focus on addressing the immediate medical needs of a child, they are not equipped or funded to provide the long-term and complex care that the centre provides. “There’s a huge need that’s not being met,� says Krawchuk, who estimates that there are as many as 10,000 children in the area that could benefit from the CCD.

Two ‘frightening’ scenarios in future outlook by Jeff Nagel PORT METRO Vancou-

ver now recognizes it might face low-growth scenarios where the massive infrastructure upgrades underway to move goods through the region may not pay off, but it so far continues to bet on stronger trade growth. The authority unveiled its new Port 2050 vision Friday, predicting what may lay ahead over the next 20 to 40 years. It includes two lowgrowth scenarios that president and CEO Robin Silvester calls “frightening.” One dubbed “Local Fortress” details how local residents’ choice to become a “lifestyle region” throttles Metro Vancouver’s potential

as a global hub, compounding the damage of a slow global economy. That scenario ends with a region attractive to tourists, retirees and the affluent, the report says, but one that pushes away industry and jobs at a cost to the region’s character, vibrancy and diversity. A second scenario is dubbed “Missed the Boat,” where supply chain problems and lack of community support for the port leaves Metro Vancouver unable to fully tap growth in emerging markets. Industry then opts to use other ports. More likely, according to Silvester, is a third “Rising Tide” scenario of continued growth but one that is more volatile because

of the increasing challenge of climate change and “resource wars” over commodities. It anticipates a one-metre rise in sea level by 2040 and temperatures four degrees warmer, as the impacts of climate change arrive decades sooner than expected. He said “Rising Tide” may be just a precursor on the way to a fourth outlook called “The Great Transition” – a rapid shift to a postindustrial, post-carbon world. It anticipates a global carbon tax and triplebottom line accounting to reflect the economy and social needs. And it still anticipates a relevant port because rising oil prices make shipping and rail more competitive than trucking.

Gateway critics have long argued port expansion harms the region’s residents, its environment and food security. They accuse the port of driving the Lower Mainland’s freeway and bridge building binge and buying up farmland for new terminals and warehousing. The port authority projects container traffic through B.C.’s West Coast will double over the next 10 to 15 years and nearly triple by 2030. It has proposed a second three-berth container terminal at Deltaport to handle the expected growth. Silvester, in a Nov. 25 speech to the Vancouver Board of Trade, gave no indication the Port 2050 findings will alter the port’s present course. But he warned the financial crisis in Europe means some of the changes and volatility the port expects in the decades ahead may come sooner than predicted. He stressed the importance of the 129,000 port-related jobs in the Lower Mainland in weathering any economic storm and said policies and programs may need to be revised to preserve and expand those jobs. It may be time for a single West Coast port authority, he said, that takes in both Port Metro Vancouver and the Port of Prince Rupert to ensure the two compete with U.S. ports but not against each other. He also repeated the port’s concern about conflict over land use and the declining supply of industrial land in the region. “Perhaps it’s not just an Agricultural Land Reserve that’s needed in British Columbia, but a Jobs Land Reserve,” Silvester said. “A reserve where land that is critical to the jobs we have, and the new jobs that we will require over the next 30 to 40 years, allows them to grow and flourish.” jnagel@surreyleader.com

BC BRIEFS

Big profit on provincial driver’s licences Black Press ICBC CHARGES $75 for a new or renewed driver’s licence, but it only costs the corporation $10 to issue the licences, B.C. Auditor General John Doyle says in a new report. The fee is set by the provincial government, which takes all the revenue and leaves ICBC to fund licence handling costs from its insurance revenues. The licence fees added up to $36.5 million in revenue to the province in the fiscal year that ended last March. Doyle found fees are set by the government without providing a rationale to the agencies that collect them. Some fees haven’t been revised since the 1990s, and nearly half of the 2,332 fees studied in the audit had no date recorded for when they were last revised. Doyle recommended that government fees be explained to agencies, revised regularly and the information made “readily available to the public.”

$10 million for job training The B.C. and federal governments have announced a $10 million fund to help lowskilled and long-term unemployed people get into industrial jobs where there is a skill shortage. Jobs, Tourism and Innovation Minister Pat Bell announced the fund Monday at a skills development conference in Vancouver. Industry organizations may apply for up to $50,000 to fill identified skills shortages, such as heavyequipment operators for mining or retail employees required to learn new computer systems. Skills training programs are to focus on unemployed people who have not had an Employment Insurance claim in the past three years, or low-skilled people without postsecondary training or trade certification. Employed people who need new skills to move into areas of shortage will also be considered for the fund, which comes from existing government budgets.

Boomer health care study starts Can the B.C. health care system withstand the retirement of the baby boom generation? A B.C. legislature committee is trying to find the answers. Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Norm Letnick, chair of the all-party committee, said its goal is to sort through different projections of the largest wave of retirement ever. The post-war generation officially begins reaching retirement age in 2012, continuing to 2036. “As the boomers move through, there are differences of opinion in the literature and in the public as to what kind of impact those boomers are going to have,” Letnick said. “Some believe that it’s going to be a little bit more money, a little increase in GDP. Others

believe that the system is not sustainable.” The committee is accepting academic studies and other research papers until Jan. 13 for the first phase of its work, assessing the impact. It will then outline alternative strategies to cope with the increased demand, and identify public response to the different proposals.

New ferry boss BC Ferries’ board of directors has appointed senior executive Michael Corrigan to replace outgoing CEO David Hahn, who is leaving at the end of the year. Corrigan’s salary will be $563,000, if he reaches all the performance and safety bonus targets in his contract. Along with three other senior executives, Cor-

rigan is being paid a lump sum of $200,000 to compensate for the cancellation of BC Ferries’ long-term bonus program. BC Ferries board chair Donald Hayes said Corrigan’s total compensation will be about 60 per cent of that paid to Hahn, who announced his early retirement in September as part of a costcutting program at the Crown corporation. Hahn’s compensation topped $1 million in the past two years, making him the highest-paid public servant in B.C. Hayes said Corrigan’s former position of chief operating officer is being eliminated, saving BC Ferries about $600,000 a year. Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom said Corrigan’s new salary is within the range of legislation passed by the

Automation branches out to new home developments

Controlling your life gets a bit easier With all the talk about “automating your home”, it’s no wonder people who may not be familiar with technology are confused over exactly what this automation stuff is all about. One popular system for home automation is Control4, which is appearing in homes and commercial properties all over the world, from the Aria hotel in Las Vegas to Maddox, a condominium development by Cressey, and Evelyn, a new development by Onni. “Control4 is in-home automation at a semiaffordable price,” says Lee Rente of Encore Security and Automation. “It can control almost everything you can think of.” Control4 can be used to automate lighting, heat, security, sound and television, among other things. Examples Rente gives include lights that can be turned on and off from

separate rooms, a home security system that can be checked from your office, and a thermostat that can start heating your house before you arrive home from vacation. “It’s really up to the owner’s imagination as to what it can do, with a few limitations,” says Rente. “It won’t make your toast for you in the morning!” So why does a home need to be automated? “It makes your life easier,” Rente says. “It’s not just automation for the sake of automation; it’s for your convenience.” It can also be helpful for personal security. Rente cites the case of one of his clients who wanted automation so his wife wouldn’t have to enter a dark house at night. “When you get home ... the lights can turn on for you as soon as you open the door.”

Go big and go home at Keystone in Surrey by Colin Oswin

Much like those old burger commercials, you can have it your way at Keystone in South Surrey. The 42 townhomes in this development from Forge Properties come in eight different configurations, but they are all fairly similar. Some have distinct dining and living rooms, while the rest have large great rooms. Each home at Keystone has three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, and the units range from 1,748 up to 1,794 square feet. But the customization theme comes straight from the developer, which offers a number of upgrade options made specifically for each home. Forge spokesman Cory Saran says home buyers can pick and choose and even make special requests if they don’t see something they’re interested in having. If you like the dining room cabinet on display in one of the show homes, Forge can build you one just like it. The same is true for the computer desk in the study nook – if you want it, it’s yours. “We wanted to have people see the show suite and let them have the show suite,” Saran says. Buyers responded well to the desk unit that was installed in the show home – a simple and functional L-shaped countertop with elevated bookshelves – so Forge made a decision to add it to the upgrade options. Other upgrades include melamine closet organizers, custom TV units and bedside tables. You can move up to a gas range from an electric model and

You can imagine the entertaining possibilities if you have guests here,” says Forge Properties spokesman Cory Saran.

even add 3D detailing on bedroom walls that can serve as an extra border around your framed decorations. With Keystone, Saran says Forge is aiming for a big, single-family feel, and this really comes across when you step inside one of the two show homes. The main floor has hardly any walls at all – and with nine-foot ceilings it’s really big and really open. Saran says the layout

provides a lot of freedom for planning your living space. “It’s like a blank canvas really,” he says. “You can do whatever you want.” Engineered hardwood flooring comes standard in the living room. It also features a fireplace. The windows are big and bright, and light comes from all directions because of the open floor plan. Saran says triple-glazed windows facing the street were installed to keep the noise level low, and taking a listen in the show home bears this out. The kitchens come with thick granite countertops, tons of storage, stainless-steel finishings and appliances, undermount sinks and glass tile backsplashes that come in brown or light blue, depending on your home’s colour scheme. But the pièce de resistance in the kitchen has to be the huge island planted right in the middle. The islands have plenty of room for storage, and they have big, one-foot continued on page 2

overhangs, so you can pull up a chair – or five – and eat or just hang out. “I haven’t seen an island of this size in a townhome in our price range,” Saran says. “You can imagine the entertaining possibilities if you have guests here.” The master bedrooms come with a vaulted ceiling in all units. They rise in a simple triangle shape up to roughly 9.5 feet. It looks quite impressive and foreshadows what’s to come in the ensuite bathroom. When you walk into the ensuite you hit

another high point. Pedestal sinks provide an exotic, luxurious feeling – in fact, the whole room does. The bathroom has two of these sinks installed on thick granite in front of a huge mirror that covers the wall. It’s an impressive sight. On the other side of the room, Forge installed a massive stand-up shower. The shower – roughly the size of a medium-sized walk-in closet – comes with 12” by 24” tiles, broken up by a pattern of much smaller tiles near the plumbing fixtures. A glazed window in the shower brings in tons of light, and a half-wall-half-window lets that sunlight flow

through the rest of the room. Another thoughtful feature: the toilet is separated from the rest of the bathroom with a sliding door, to add an extra bit of privacy. As a whole, the master bathroom is a grand sight. It’s impressive and it manages to stay classy. Saran says it’s like having your own spa hidden away in your bedroom. “You don’t really notice it, but then ‘Wow,’” he says. “It really feels like a spa when you walk into your ensuite bathroom.” Downstairs, each home comes standard with double-wide garages, providing easy access for two cars at a time.

Behind the double-wide garages, each unit comes with another bonus room. These rooms can be converted into a home office or gym. One show home at Keystone even has it laid out as a man-cave/home theatre. These bonus rooms lead out onto the patio and into the backyard. Each unit comes with a backyard, but the sizes can vary. Homes at Keystone range from $445,000 up to $510,000, and Forge is currently offering a limited-time promotion: 50 per cent off all upgrades. For more information, visit www. ownkeystone.com or call 604-538-5518.

Gourmet kitchens feature a giant island, above left, perfect for preparing food, grabbing a quick bite or gathering around during a casual cocktail party. An open-plan layout gives you plenty of space for entertaining groups of all sizes, and a standard fireplace and engineered hardwood floors in the living area are elegant touches, above right.

North Delta Devils on a 5-0-1 run

Win streak at four

by Rick Kupchuk

BY EXTENDING their season-best win streak to

four games, the North Delta Devils are starting to put some distance between themselves and the Tom Shaw Conference basement. The Devils stopped the Port Moody Black Panthers 6-3 Monday night at the Port Moody Arena, improving to 5-0-1 (won-lost-tied) in their last six starts in the Pacific International Junior Hockey League. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re starting to figure things out,â&#x20AC;? said Devils head coach Grant Armstrong. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The guys are buying into what the coaches are telling them as to how to play the game. They try things, it works, and they get a lot of confidence.â&#x20AC;? Now at 11-7-4 near the midway point of the season, North Delta is in third place, five points up on both the North Vancouver Timberwolves and the slumping Grandview Steelers. Only the last place team in the five-team Tom Shaw Conference wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make the playoffs. Grant â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t usually focus on Armstrong the standings until the team is where it should be,â&#x20AC;? said Armstrong. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not clear of the two teams behind us, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not looking behind us, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking ahead.â&#x20AC;? Stefan Burzan put North Delta ahead just 82 seconds into the game, and before the first period was over, Adam Nishi and Jacob Wensley set each other up for goals to lift the visitors to a 3-0 lead. Outshot 16-4 in the opening frame, Port Moody fired 30 shots at the Devilsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; goal over the final 40 minutes, and by the five-minute mark of the third period had tied the game 3-3. Wensley got the winner with eight minutes to play, then Matthew Tilton added an insurance goal just six seconds later. Burzan closed out the scoring with his second of the game with just 18 seconds left on the clock. North Delta netminder Harry Fredeman turned aside 31 of the 24 shots for the win, his eighth in 13 decisions. The Devils host the Richmond Sockeyes at 6:45 p.m. Saturday night in the Sungod Arena. The Sockeyes lead the league with a 20-2-0 record, one of the two losses a 6-4 setback to the Devils last Thursday in Richmond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Richmond will be a big test,â&#x20AC;? said Armstrong. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on a bit of a roll, so we know we can do it.â&#x20AC;?

Sungod shines at Fast Swim by Rick Kupchuk FOR SEVERAL reasons, Team

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re starting to ďŹ gure things out.â&#x20AC;?

BOAZ JOSEPH / THE LEADER

Adam Nishi of the North Delta Devils scored once and assisted on another in a 6-3 win over the Por t Moody Black Panthers Monday night.

Sungodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effort at the Fast Swim Invitational can be described as very successful. Swimmers from the North Delta club combined for 30 top-eight finishes and won 16 medals. Two swimmers combined to achieve three provincial AAA qualifying times, and six club records were broken. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This event simulates, as close as possible, the conditions of the main meets of the short course season coming up in February and March,â&#x20AC;? said head coach Steven Hitchings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As we head into the holiday season DSSC swimmers can feel proud about what they have accomplished this season and how far we have come in a short period of time.â&#x20AC;? Roseanna Chung achieved her AAA standard in the girls 15-yearold 100 metre breaststroke, while Logan Warkentin qualified for provincial championships in the 12-year-old girls 50 metre freestyle and 100 metre backstroke. Warkentin finished the meet with two gold, two silver and a pair of bronze medals. Five club records were set by Kevin McDonough in the boys 13-14 year-old 50, 100 and 200 metre backstroke, 100 metre butterfly and 200 metre individual medley. McDonough won four medals, a gold, two silver and a bronze. Alan Lu set the sixth Sungod record in the boys 13-14 year-old 50 metre breaststroke, also winning a bronze medal. Elena Penner took home four medals, winning a pair of gold medals and adding two bronze. Noah Landry also medaled, winning bronze. Other swimmers qualifying for finals and placing in the top eight were Chung, Tia Dececco, Joseph Kidd, Alix Main, Daniel Su and Connor Warkentin.

Eagles climb to fifth Basketball team wins three straight by Rick Kupchuk THE ONLY THING to slow down the

Kwantlen Eagles women’s basketball is a six-week break in the schedule. After losing three of their first four PacWest league games, the Eagles have reeled off three wins in a row to move into fifth place in the nineteam provincial lead. Tipping off against the Langara Falcons last Tuesday night in Vancouver, Kwantlen improved to 4-3 (won-lost) with a 55-46 victory. They are two games up on the 2-5 Falcons, who are in seventh place, one position out of a playoff spot. Sam McPhail, a second-year centre from Vancouver, had a solid allaround game for the Eagles with 12 rebounds, two steals, a pair of blocks while scoring five points. Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s men’s team didn’t have the same suc-

cess, losing 96-64 to the Falcons. The Eagles struggled in two areas of the game, collecting only 33 rebounds to Langara’s 60 while shooting just 37 per cent from the free throw line. Aaron Ram, a first year guard from Seaquam Secondary, was the team’s high scorer with 23 points. A.J. Adusei of North Delta added 14 points and four assists. Adusei leads the league in scoring, averaging 28.86 points per game, and is ranked seventh with 3.71 assists per game. The seventh-place Eagles fell to 2-5 on the season, two games back of both Langara and the Douglas College Royals, who are tied for fifth. Kwantlen’s two teams resume league play on Jan. 13, when they travel to Prince George for a game with the University of Northern B.C. Timberwolves.

Skills camps on the holidays One-day sessions at Earl Marriott Secondary A PAIR OF one-day bas-

ketball camps are set for the holiday season, for young players interested in honing their skills over the winter break. The camps are hosted by One Pass Ahead – run by Trinity Western University coach Scott

Allen, and Livia Munro. The first camp, slated for Thursday, Dec. 28, from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m., will focus solely on shooting, while a second camp, Friday, Dec. 29, also from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m., will focus on oneon-one skills.

THERE’S FISH IN MY BACKYARD?

Did you know there are over 1500 kilometres of streams and creeks all throughout Surrey where salmon and trout live? Visit these places at the right time of the year and you’ll luck out with seeing spawning salmon make their way upstream to their native creeks. In Bear Creek Park there have been over 900 spawning Chum salmon spotted in one season! In the late winter it seems to be the quietest time in our local streams for seeing fish but don’t be fooled because this is probably the time of the year when the most salmon are actually in the streams in the gravel as eggs waiting for spring so that they can hatch. If you check out the creeks in the spring, in the calmer pools you might be able to spot the schools of small salmon fry that have freshly emerged from the gravels where their eggs were laid the previous fall. Visit the website to learn about great places to see fish in Surrey! 11771

Inside Track ...with Dan Jukich Amber Lancaster’s childhood dream is about to become a reality. The 22-year-old part-time professional model – a product of Kwantlen College in Langley – makes her long-awaited harness racing driving debut Friday night at Fraser Downs Racetrack. Having been around horses since she was 10 years old, Amber began taking the demanding steps towards obtaining a driver’s licence at the age of 16. It meant three years as a groom mucking stalls in the backstretch, two more years as a trainer and finally passing the grueling challenges required to become a full-fledged driver. Living out her fantasy only gets better. With her debut in Friday night’s opening race (7 p.m.) she will be in the sulky behind the 5-year-old mare Black Sierra, trained by her step-father Tim Brown, an established driver himself at The Downs. It is one of three drives Amber has on her big night, the second being Red Star Stella in the 7th race. Red Star Stella is trained by 81-year-old Ray Gimmell, one of Amber’s early mentors when she was breaking in as a groom. Her third appearance comes in the 11th race, driving Hi Ho Serenade for trainer Murray Balbar. Amber had a Fraser Downs crowd on its feet in March of 2010 when she drove Cheyenne Dusk to victory in a special non-betting ladies race as part of an evening dedicated to Breast Cancer Research. Can you just imagine the reaction tomorrow night should she hit the finish line first with Black Sierra (7-2), Red Star Stella (5-1) or Hi Ho Serenade (6-1). It has been a courageous journey for young Amber Lancaster, who becomes the first lady driver at Fraser Downs Racetrack since Nadine Heidt in 2005. Personally, I get chills running up my spine just thinking of the heartwarming scene that is going to take place prior to tomorrow night’s opening race. See you there. djukich@fraserdowns.com 17755 60th Avenue Surrey BC

Two Renegades sign with SFU Surrey residents recruited by university coach Black Press A PAIR OF White Rock Renegades

will be playing this fall in Burnaby, after signing with the Simon Fraser University Clan last week. Renegades Rachel Proctor and Alana Pineault, both Surrey residents, were two of three signees

last week, joining Langleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nicole Ratel, who played in the Fraser Valley Fusion organization. SFU head coach Mike Renney was excited to bring Proctor, an outfielder, and Pineault, who plays multiple positions, into the fold. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have been watching Rachel play for the past couple of years

and would best describe her as a strong hitting outfielder,â&#x20AC;? said Renney in a release. With the White Rock Renegades, both Proctor and Pineault were part of two B.C. championship teams, as well as one Canadian Open International Fastpitch Championship-winning club.

Panthers finish season unbeaten Cloverdale, North Delta win B.C. titles

Black Press THE CLOVERDALE Panthers completed

a perfect season Saturday in Langley, defeating the Mission Niners 48-0 in the B.C. Minor Footballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Atom division championship game The Panthers won all 10 league games, then reeled off five consecutive postseason wins. They also won preseason tournaments in Maple Ridge and Cloverdale. Walker Erickson led the offense with three touchdowns. Harshaad Jouhal and Logan Walsh added one each while Himmat Aujla caught a pass from Jaeden Reid for the sixth major. Terrel Jones was perfect on the six extra point attempts. Taran Birdi,

Nathan Sawyer and Gage Mack were all very strong on defense. The North Delta Longhorns won the Pee Wee division final, defeating the Abbotsford Falcons 28-12. The Falcons had allowed only 18 points in their Valley Community Football League season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We came up against a quality opponent, and it just wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t our day,â&#x20AC;? Falcons team manager Paul Gervais said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of our kids had pretty good games, but we just couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop them on a couple different drives.â&#x20AC;? Tyson Philpot was voted MVP of the game for North Delta. In the Bantam division final, the Victoria Spartans edged the North Surrey Tigers 10-9.

Mini-season a success Four ďŹ rst-place ďŹ nishes for Surrey United

Black Press The eight-week mini-season that served as a pilot is now over, and those behind the new EA Sports BC Soccer Premier League (BCSPL) seem satisfied with the first step taken by the elite teams fielded by the eight member clubs. The league, which includes Surrey United among its membership, played games across the province from mid-September to mid-November, with male and female teams in the under-13 through under-17 age groups. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The pilot mini-

season has proved to be invaluable to the league and its constituent clubs in terms of preparation for the start of the inaugural season in late February,â&#x20AC;? said David Haber, interim president of the BCSPLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Board of Governors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are currently evaluating feedback from both an administrative and technical perspective so as to ensure that any appropriate amendments to our rules, regulations and league operating procedures are made.â&#x20AC;? Unitedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boys teams had a successful eight weeks of BCSPL play, placing first in the

under-13, under-15, and under-16 groups, while the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s girls teams earned a first place finish in the under-14 group, and tied for first in under15. The first full season of play will begin in late February of 2012, with Surrey United, Coquitlam Metro Ford, Fusion FC (Vancouver/ Richmond), Magnuson Ford Mariners (Abbotsford), Mountain United (Burnaby/North Shore), South Fraser (South Surrey/Delta), Vancouver Island Wave and Thompson/ Okanagan FC (Kelowna/ Kamloops).

SEVEN LOCAL high school teams

competed in the fourth annual Pat Dooley Memorial Junior Boys Basketball Classic, but it was the eighth team from Richmond which emerged as champions at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. The A.R. MacNeill Ravens won three consecutive games at the Dec. 1-3 competition, defeating the Panorama Ridge Thunder 55-53, the Elgin Park Orcas 65-32 and the Pacific Academy Breakers 68-33 to place first. They were led by tournament Most Valuable Player Nathan Tomas. Panorama Ridge placed third, defeating the North Surrey Spartans 68-49. In the fifth/sixth playoff game, Elgin Park defeated the Kwantlen Park Timberwolves 38-30. In its four-year history, the Classic

title has been won by four different teams. Teams of players in Grades 9-10 competed in honor of Pat Dooley, a member of the Kwantlen Eagles basketball family who passed away suddenly on Feb. 5, 2008. “The Pat Dooley Memorial Junior Boys Basketball Classic is about more than just basketball,” commented Elise Le Brun, Kwantlen’s director, athletics and recreation. “It’s about following your passion; sportsmanship; being a part of the community, but most of all, it’s about honoring a young man who embodied all of these elements.” Classic all-stars were Matt Strang of Elgin Park, Afan Saleem of the North Delta Huskies, Nimrit Plaha of Panorama Ridge, Mosses Adediran of Pacific Academy and Omar Tung of A.R. MacNeill.

The largest is Theatre of the Soul, an arresting mixed-media piece that measures three metres wide by four metres tall, and is built out of beads, cardboard, clay, electric lighting, lucite and metal. The figures represent life, death, and the state between the two, as well as other cultural symbols. It was created by artists Michele Miguel, artists Zoey Ahn, Yeram (Grace) Kim, Jocelyn Ko, Kyuri Lee, Michelle Liu and Angela Ryu. It cost $25,000 to produce (through the Spirit of Youth program) and will be permanently installed in the Surrey School District after the exhibition. Students and their parents were invited to an opening night gathering at the museum earlier this month to view the exhibit.

The 12-year-old has danced in the RCYB show for three years and is among several local dancers involved, including Samantha Froh, Sophia Carroll, Madeleine Martin, Kylie Milliken, Desiree Kennedy, Paige Harrison, Chloe Choroszewski, Emma Salisbury, Tiffany Roan and Lee Taylor in his customary role as Drosselmaier, the toymaker. The classic annual production is at the Surrey Arts Centre Friday, Dec. 9 at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 10 at 1 and 4 p.m., and Sunday, Dec. 11 at 1 and 4 p.m. For the uninitiated, The Nutcracker, set to the music of Tchaikovsky, tells the story of a young girl named Clara, who receives a nutcracker doll from her uncle at a Christmas party. She falls asleep and dreams that her gift comes to life, forming an army of toy soldiers, battling a Mouse King and taking her on a magical journey through the Land of Snow and Kingdom of Sweets where they meet characters like the Sugar Plum Fairy and Snow Queen. A perennial favourite, the RCYB production, now in its 23rd year, is noted for its beautiful sets, extravagant costumes, and casts of talented, dedicated and enthusiPHOTO SUBMITTED astic young dancers.
