Surrey Mounties ask community for help in ﬁnding suspects
Cops cut one from ‘Top 10’ list
Light rail an option for rapid transit: Minister Province responds to Surrey, Langley by Jeff Nagel
Parmonkar Singh Bassi
Yasmany Jesus Victores-Castillo
Michael Allan DeYoung
Randall Johnson LOCATED by Kevin Diakiw
POLICE HAVE reduced their “Top
10” most wanted list to nine, after capturing one of the suspects Tuesday afternoon. On Tuesday morning, Surrey RCMP made a plea to the public for help in finding 10 people who have allegedly dodged authorities for some time. Outstanding warrants range from drug offences to property crime to violent assaults. Just hours after RCMP released
their Top 10 list, Randall Johnson was arrested without incident in the 13600 block of 20 Avenue in South Surrey. The 41-year-old was wanted on a warrant for dangerous driving causing bodily harm, obstruction of police officer and operating a motor vehicle while being pursued by a police officer. Police are still asking for public assistance in locating the other people on the list. “We want the community to be
our eyes and ears so that we can quickly apprehend these individuals,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Drew Grainger. “If you do spot this person, do no approach them and please contact your local police right away.” Anyone with information about these people or their current whereabouts is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-5990502, or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222TIPS (8477).
The suspects include: • Yasmany Jesus Victores-Castillo, wanted for trafficking drugs, possession for the purposes of trafficking, unlawful trafficking, conspiracy and warrant of committal. He is a 27-year-old Hispanic, 5’9” and 185 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. He uses the alias Tony Montana and has tattoos of a Canadian and Cuban flag on his lower right leg. See SURREY RCMP / Page 3
A PLEDGE by Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom to consider light rail transit (LRT) technology to expand rapid transit South of the Fraser is a significant step forward, area mayors say. The minister isn’t excluding SkyTrain but has made it clear all options are on the table and recognized Surrey’s rapid growth. “We are examining the use of LRT as well as the potential for bus rapid transit and SkyTrain technology to provide frequent, fast and reliable service to communities south of the Fraser River,” he said in a Nov. 9 letter to mayors, adding that work is continuing in partnership with TransLink and local cities. Langley City Blair Lekstrom Mayor Peter Fassbender said he’s taking the statement as a shift in the province’s stance from that of former Premier Gordon Campbell, who had vowed to extend SkyTrain in Surrey down the Fraser Highway to Langley. Fassbender and Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts have both been advocating for LRT. See LRT / Page 4

“It’s a recognition that LRT is one of the options we want to seriously look at,” Fassbender said. “There may be some good rationale for expansion of SkyTrain to Guildford, for example, but not necessarily coming out to Langley city centre,”
he said. Advocates see at-grade LRT with more local stations as a technology that can better connect neighbourhoods within a city, rather than SkyTrain, which critics say is more oriented to speeding commuters to and from the rest of the region.
WHAT’S SAVED IN POWER IS MADE UP FOR IN STYLE.
Watts said in her letter to Lekstrom an at-grade rail system is “integral” to connecting town centres and supporting businesses and economic development. Merchants are less likely to benefit from elevated SkyTrain lines because potential customers don’t have the ability to exit right at street level. TransLink is in the midst of its Surrey Rapid Transit Study to help determine preferred routes and technologies for an expansion that could link White Rock and Langley as well. The initial phase came up with 10 options using SkyTrain, LRT, Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) or combinations thereof on the King George Boulevard, Fraser Highway and 104 Avenue corridors
at costs ranging from $650 million to more than $2 billion. TransLink has pledged to refine those options by early next year and the province would work with TransLink and local cities to make a final choice. Local cities aren’t just waiting for the TransLink process and consultations to play out. The City of Surrey has repeatedly touted the potential of light rail on the same corridors TransLink is studying, preparing video animations to depict how an LRT system in north Surrey would work. Fassbender said he has confidence in the TransLink process, adding the mayors weren’t trying to short-circuit it by directly lobbying the minister.
Watts said Surrey has been pushing for increased provincial spending on transit in local cities for some time. How any rapid transit extension further in Surrey is funded will depend heavily on talks between the mayors and the province over new revenue sources for TransLink. Vancouver also wants a rapid transit extension down the Broadway corridor to UBC and TransLink has been working on a similar study to shortlist options for that line.

New helm for Metro CAO retiring, Delta mayor no longer wants chair by Jeff Nagel METRO VANCOUVER will have a new board chair
for 2012 and a new chief administrator to head the regional districtâ€™s bureaucracy. Longtime Metro CAO Johnny Carline, who turned 65 last month, will retire Feb. 14. Carline said he decided to give advance notice of his intent to retire â€“ before Saturdayâ€™s municipal elections â€“ so no one speculates heâ€™s leaving as a result of which civic politicians win or lose their local races or which one becomes the next chair of the Metro board. Chair Lois Jackson said she will not seek the Metro chair again when the new board convenes in December â€“ even if she is re-elected as Deltaâ€™s mayor on Saturday. Jackson led the board for the last six years and says thatâ€™s long enough. â€œIt is very, very draining,â€? she said. Carline has served for 20 years as the commissioner and CAO for Metro Vancouver, or the Greater Vancouver Regional District as it was called when he first arrived. The British-educated planner had previously held senior posts with the cities of Vancouver, Toronto, Surrey and Richmond. He helped broker a ground-breaking consensus of the regionâ€™s politicians in 1996 to pass the original Livable Region Strategic Plan to protect green space and limit growth. And then he did it all over again over the last three years, culminating in the signing of a new regional growth strategy last summer. â€œI donâ€™t think people understand how difficult it is to get these 22 councils and staff all agreeing to one plan,â€? Jackson said. â€œIt is a Herculean task.â€? Carline has also been at the forefront of a series of other regional sustainability initiatives that map out ways to further improve air quality, drinking water and expand the park system. One of the most contentious items for both Carline and Jackson in recent years was passage of the new solid waste management plan, under which Metro aims to send more garbage to new waste-to-energy plants, rather than distant landfills. Carlinâ€™es retirement will leave the new Metro board with a choice â€“ replace him with a new chief administrator from Metroâ€™s existing staff ranks or recruit a new one from elsewhere. Carline was paid $324,000 last year. The new board chair â€“ to be elected by other Metro directors in December â€“ will be paid an extra $66,082, on top of their council salary, while the vice-chair gets half that amount.

Report criticizes cities for overspending Business lobby urges better cost control by Jeff Nagel NO LOWER MAINLAND cities have come even close to limiting their spending to a growth rate deemed sustainable by a small business lobby group. The Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) released an analysis Monday that found overall municipal operating spending in the province has soared at nearly four times the combined rate of population and inflation over the past decade. Mission – which the CFIB credits with one of the best cost-control records – still saw its spending at Shachi Kurl grow double that rate from 2000 to 2009 and almost every other city in the region increased its spending at least three times as fast. “Municipalities are spending more than ever and faster than ever,” said CFIB B.C. director Shachi Kurl. “Taxpayers can only bear so much. Things are on track to become unsustainable.” The Union of B.C. Municipalities has previously argued cities are struggling to pay more costs that are being downloaded onto them by senior government, and have little control over some escalating costs, such as policing.
“Taxpayers can only bear so much.”

Cities: Delta among those that spent the most From page 7 But the CFIB discounts that argument, noting cities are also receiving much more in grants and transfers from Ottawa and Victoria, while also raising much more revenue directly in local fees and charges. “We are by no means suggesting communities should sacrifice public safety,” Kurl said. “There are far more places for cities to look at trimming spending and holding the line
than cutting policing.” She said the CFIB would like new councils elected Nov. 19 to try harder to contain the wage and benefit demands of unionized municipal workers. Municipal contracts are coming up for renewal and the previous bargaining round led to pre-Olympic deals that gave civic workers across much of Metro Vancouver wage hikes of at least 13 per cent over four years. According to the BC Municipal Spending Watch 2011 report,
“There are far more places for cities to look at trimming spending ... than cutting policing.” Shachi Kurl the biggest cities in the province spent on average $1,290 per person on operating costs in 2009.
It does not include capital project spending. The large Lower Mainland cities that spent the most per capita were West Vancouver at $1,850 per person, New Westminster at $1,697, Vancouver at $1,586, North Vancouver City at $1,466 and Delta at $1,448. The most frugal Lower Mainland cities on a per capita basis were Surrey, which spends $856 per resident, Chilliwack
at $939, followed by Maple Ridge, Port Coquitlam, Coquitlam, Mission, Abbotsford, Langley City and Burnaby in a range from $1,000 to $1,200. When adjusted for inflation, those per capita spending numbers increased by at least 25 per cent over the last decade in most Lower Mainland cities and by more than 50 per cent in Abbotsford, Langley Township and Chilliwack. The report also ranks cities on a combined measure of spending per capita and the growth in inflationadjusted spending from 2000 to 2009. Those rankings show Mission has performed best in keeping costs under control in the Lower Mainland, followed by Port Coquitlam, Surrey, Burnaby and Langley City. Kurl said bigger cities have some advantages in spreading out
their costs. And she credited Burnaby council – even though it’s left-leaning and labour friendly – with achieving one of the better scores. “They’re pretty hard core about defining what a core service is,” Kurl said, adding it shows fiscal discipline can be achieved regardless of the political stripe of the council at city hall. Had local city councils restrained spending to the growth of population and inflation in the last decade, the CFIB report said, a family of four would have saved $3,000 to $5,000 in most Lower Mainland cities and around $8,000 on the North Shore. It estimates B.C. residents overall would have saved more than $4 billion over the last decade had spending been held to the recommended level. email@example.com

Leaves blamed for halt of SkyTrain ‘Unusual’ storm causes six-hour stop by Jeff Nagel AN UNUSUALLY heavy
build-up of leaves on SkyTrain tracks was to blame for a lengthy disruption of the rapid transit system Nov. 12, TransLink officials say. The nearly six-hour shutdown of the Expo Line last Saturday happened after an intense storm the night before brought rain, hail and wind gusts of up to 100 kilometres an hour, disrupting ferry service and sending leaves and other debris into the air. Fred Cummings, president of TransLink’s SkyTrain subsidiary, said trains turned leaves in the tracks into an oily paste that caused some SkyTrain cars to skid, prompting trains to stop as a safety precaution. “While leaves on the tracks have caused minor SkyTrain service disruptions in the past, this is the first time in our nearly 26-year history a build-up of leaves has caused a major service disruption,” he said. Cummings said the high winds and heavy rains were an “unusual combination of events” that left soaking masses of leaves on SkyTrain wheel assemblies. “We would like to apologize to our passengers for the service disruption and assure them that we will be identifying changes to how we respond to a major wind event to better address any issues that may arise, before they become a major service issue,” Cummings said. All safety systems performed normally and appropriately, he said. A bus bridge carried passengers trying to take SkyTrain between Surrey and New Westminster and also between CommercialBroadway and downtown Vancouver. The Millennium Line between VCC-Clark and Sapperton stations ran normally.

congestion and illegal parking at the South Surrey Park and Ride has led to the introduction of 13 stalls designated for those who carpool. But while TransLink officials say the move is hoped to encourage more people to share their ride – and avoid the need to tow vehicles being parked illegally – at least one woman says it will do little to ease the problem at the wellused facility. “Give me a break,” said Tina Hartnell, a South Surrey resident whose 20-year-old daughter takes transit to Langara College. “You’re assuming that these people are all on the same schedule.” Hartnell’s daughter was among commuters who returned to the lot last month to find a notice on their vehicle warning they could be towed in the future if found parked illegally. The curbs have since been painted yellow, and warning signs have been installed, Hartnell said this week. TransLink spokesman Drew Snider said the initial warnings were issued when it was recognized the problem was growing. He said TransLink’s customer service has been fielding five to 10 complaints per month regarding problem parking at the lot, including some calls from people who have returned to find their vehicle boxed in. Other illegally parked commuters have actually affected bus operations, he said. “We’re not about to start towing people, but we have to look at practical solutions to what has become a dangerous… inconvenient situation,” Snider said. The South Surrey Park and Ride, located near the King George Boulevard exits to and from Highway 99, has 481 parking stalls. In recent weeks, commuters arriving to find the lot full have taken to parking along the curbs and even the exit lane that leads towards the King George. Snider said a customer survey – determining 91 per cent of those who use the parkand-ride are driving to and from the lot alone

LAST WEEK WE ASKED:
Do you plan to attend a Remembrance Day ceremony on Nov. 11? Here’s how you responded: Yes 48% No 52% CLOCK CONUNDRUM
Time for a change
ear George Vernon Hudson, I learned today that you are the New Zealander who dreamed up the idea that Daylight Savings Time would be marvellous. Back in 1895 when you proposed messing with the clocks, did you ever think it would come to this? I doubt it. Today, folks all over the world are shaving an hour and adding one a couple times a year (though in Saskatchewan they know it’s bunkum and don’t touch their tickers). And it’s all because of your observation that ‘gee, wouldn’t it be nice to have a little more daylight when you knock off work?’ Well, yeah. It would be nice if it were so simple. It would be great if my computer switched back to Standard Time and my phone display wasn’t still on Daylight Savings. Or if the automatic lock on our office’s front doors finally figured out that back in 2006, Canada bumped its fall clock re-setting back a few days to be in sync with our wise neighbours to the south. And it would be lovely if my toddlers could shift their biological clocks with such ease, and not wake up at 5 a.m., grumpy, ticked off, and wonderChris ing why they must wait two hours for breakfast. I said it was you, Mr. Hudson, they should be speaking to, but they just think their parents are sick-minded. And then we leave our homes to start our day, and the roads are clogged with groggy drivers and accidents spike? Does this make any sense? Rather than berate you, Mr. Hudson, I’d like to suggest alternatives. Using Standard Time year-round, I concede, would be a bummer. In Vancouver, the July sunrise would be at about 4 a.m. and sunset would be shortly after 8 p.m. Changing the clock makes sense. But why not use Daylight Savings year-round, and give it a

QUESTION OF THE WEEK
new name, like TIME? Sure, in winter the sun in Vancouver wouldn’t rise until 9 a.m., but we’d have more light in the afternoon. What’s the difference? Drive to work in the dark or drive home that way? In winter, life’s a pitch. The appeal is simplicity. Messing with clocks messes with heads. Period. Or perhaps, Mr. Hudson, we could be immensely clever, like the ancient peoples, and divide daylight by 12 regardless of day length so that an hour is, say, 45 minutes in winter, but 80 minutes in summer. That way, we’d always get 12 hours of daylight, I suppose. As crazy at that might seem, it pales compared to the patchwork of time across the globe. In North America and Europe, they observe Daylight Savings. A couple of countries in South America do, too. In most of Asia and Africa they don’t. And in some countries they actually skew times zones, a concept I’m not sure my nut can grasp. And even here time has run amok. Like Saskatchewan, there are many Standard Time stalwarts in Canada. In B.C. the list includes Fort St. John, Charlie Lake, Taylor, Dawson Bryan Creek and Creston. In winter, these towns share the clock with Edmonton; in summer, Vancouver. (Is it political? I don’t know.) Even Saskatchewan has exceptions, with the towns of Denare Beach and Creighton choosing to observe that scheme you dreamt up 116 years ago, Mr. Hudson. We’ll that’s it from me. Judging by the clock on my computer, it’s time to knock off. My phone display says I should have been home an hour ago.

It seems Canada is a democracy of sheep
Cummins will get this vote I LISTENED to John Cummins,
THE MORE things change, the
more they stay the same. Canadians were the people in North America who were fine with taxation without representation in 1776 and now it seems many Canadians do not even believe in or practise democracy. First, barely 50 per cent even bother to vote in federal and provincial elections, and now according to the polls, many do not support people exercising their democratic right to peaceful protests such as the Occupy movement. Apparently protesting not only upsets them but also inconveniences them and somehow embarrasses or threatens their peace of mind. Canadians have allowed archaic federal and provincial electoral systems which allow huge majority governments with a minority of voter support. I find it hypocritical that the Canadian people as well as our government applauded Egypt and other countries for protesting for freedom and democracy but when Canadians practise democracy somehow it is stupid and frivolous and even illegal, such as the G20 and all the Occupy demonstrations taking place in Canada and all over the world. It seems if things keep going in the same direction, very soon, if Canadians want to live in a democracy, they will have to move to Egypt. At least we will have lots of new prisons to incarcerate all these malcontents thanks to Stephen Harper and his draconian vision of Canada. Here is an added caution to the people who are suggesting the government use Canadian troops to disperse these protests: With the new rules anyone arrested by the military would be considered a terrorist, with all the loss of rights that comes with that particular designation.

leader of the provincial Conservative Party, on radio today. Memories from long ago came flooding back. I can’t remember how I met John but suspect it may have been at the initial meeting of the Reform party with Preston Manning. John then lived in Langley, rented a modest apartment and had a wife and a little boy. John taught school in those days for a living and continued to do so when he moved to Delta. His income he augmented by commercial fishing. He was a hard-working, decent fellow who cared about the welfare of all. With compassion and caring he nursed his wife through the horrors of terminal cancer until her death. A few years later, John turned up at my home to present his new wife who was a widow with children and was a flight attendant for Air Canada. In the meantime, his son was making a name for himself in the movie industry. The reason I am giving these few brief facts is this: John Cummins cares about all of us. He is a dedicated, decent fellow who has worked hard all his life and who represented Delta well as a Member of Parliament. At election time, if I’m still around, John will get my vote as he cares about me and all of us irrespective of our circumstances or political stripe. Mike Harvey Langley
Workers thick as bricks Want Punjabi hockey? Pay for it RE: “ALL CULTURES speak the universal language of
hockey,” Letters, Nov. 10. Navi Dosanjh, you have missed the point. The fact that your parents have, as you say, lived in Canada for over 20 years and have yet to enjoy the best of Canadian entertainment in hockey is no one’s fault but their own. And dare I say, yours. It seems for whatever reason, in those 20 years, they have chosen not to at least learn the spoken tongue of the majority of all of the immigrants who have come to this land, which happens to be English or French. To suggest that the taxpayers of Canada should now have to pay to have hockey broadcast in your parents’ “national language” is an insult to all of the rest of Canadian immigrants that have learned to speak English or French and now enjoy the game as the rest of us do. I do not object to Punjabi broadcasting of hockey if they can find the funds to pay for it from those who want it. Robert Gary Parkes Port Kells
EACH WEEK I put out my blue box filled with recyclables. Each week I put a brick on the top of my papers to prevent them blowing all over the neighbourhood. Each week my box is emptied along with the rest of the street’s boxes. This morning the truck did not collect and empty my box, but all the rest of the block’s boxes are emptied. I phoned the hotline and was told to look for an orange sticker which states they won’t take it. There isn’t one because it is the usual box with the usual papers held down by the usual brick. Up until this week the men/women managed to lift the brick and leave it on the driveway. Perhaps somebody got out of bed the wrong side, or thought somebody else would pick it up? Words almost fail me at the ineptitude of some municipal workers or am I just the unlucky dupe this week? Sheila Gair, Surrey

Hospice fundraiser dedicated to Gabrielle ‘No one ever wants to be in Canuck Place,’ says father of terminally ill tot by Tracy Holmes A SOUTH Surrey
fundraiser to benefit a Vancouver children’s hospice is hoped to raise at least $2,000. Inspired by a White Rock family dealing with the reality that their youngest child is terminally ill, Saturday’s
Moms Night Out event at Creative Kids Learning Centre will feature a raffle, desserts, beverages and 12 vendors offering up early Christmas-shopping suggestions. All of the proceeds, along with any donations, will be hand-delivered to
Canuck Place – a facility dedicated to the comfort and support of children living with a life-threatening illness. “No one ever wants to be in Canuck Place, because the criteria for being there is to be a child who’s not expected to make it out of childhood,” said Regan Ross.

Ross and his wife, Amy, know the reality of that firsthand. Last year, shortly after the birth of their daughter, Gabrielle, they learned their time with her would be all-too-short. Born with a rare and incurable genetic disorder known as Inclusioncell (I-cell) disease – in which lysosomes within Gabrielle’s cells aren’t properly storing waste – Gabrielle “can’t grow,” Regan explained. In the year since her birth, her weight has barely doubled. She will likely never walk. And her family is grateful for every moment they have with her. Diagnosed shortly after her birth, it has

Michael and James. They’ve become most familiar with Canuck Place since July, after Gabrielle underwent a stem-cell transplant the preceding March. The procedure was hoped to stimulate some cells that would store waste properly and improve the quality of Gabrielle’s life. The hospice – which offers families like the Rosses respite, emergency and end-of-life services – became their refuge, a place they can go for a full night’s sleep, help with Gabrielle’s care and family time. “They’re unbelievable. It gives us time to spend with each other,” Amy said, noting the facility relies largely on donations to operate. “They’ve just helped us so much, and many other families. You really feel like you’re going to a home when you go there.” Regan Ross said the journey with Gabrielle has taught him and Amy a lot, much of which they’re sharing on a blog (babyross. blogspot.com) that started as a one-off way of sharing a video of their newborn. It’s grown into a therapeutic scrapbook of thoughts, photographs, videos and more. “We’ve always said we would never change this in for anything,” Regan said. “The Buddhists believe the children pick their parents. We feel very blessed and fortunate that little Gabrielle chose us.” The fundraiser is set for 6-10 p.m. Nov. 19 at Creative Kids’ Rosemary Heights location, 15350 34 Ave. Those planning to attend are asked to RSVP to 604-560-5202 or email@example.com

Big box stores eyed for TFN land and Canadian Tire are three big-name retailers that have been proposed for the Tsawwassen First Nation land. TFNâ€™s planned mixed-use develop-
ment, called Tsawwassen Mills Power Centre, is now leasing retail space and marketing material published by Form Retail Advisors says there are â€œactive negotiations underway with three major anchor tenants.â€? An illustrated map
shows the possible locations of the three retail giants. But nothing is confirmed yet. â€œTo our knowledge, no retailer tenants of that development have been finalized at this time,â€? said TFN Chief Kim Baird in a statement. â€œSecuring and attracting tenants to the project is the job of our potential development partners.â€? Baird said the TFN has been working with Property Development Group and Ivanhoe Cambridge â€œfor some timeâ€? on the major commercial development. A listing from Form Retail advertises 100,000-square-feet of retail space available for rent at Tsawwassen Mills at $35 per
square foot per year. A marketing brochure seeking potential tenants says Phase 1 of the project consists of a 600,000-sq.-ft. retail development on 53 acres of commercially designated land in Metro Vancouver, estimated to open in the first quarter of 2014. The brochure says the development also offers â€œunparalleledâ€? exposure to ferry terminal traffic, which totaled 7.7 million passengers in 2009. Phase 2 of the project consists of a proposed 1.2-millionsq.-ft. enclosed mall. The entire TFN development could include 120 acres, or 1.6 million-squarefeet, of retail commercial development;

355 acres of industrial land located adjacent to Deltaport; and 325 acres of residential lands. The lands, situated along the north side of Highway 17 near the ferry terminal, were received by TFN as fee simple land in 2009 as part of its treaty with the governments of Canada and B.C. Baird said the TFN is currently focused on the due diligence and review process. The due diligence will determine the feasibility of developing the project to meet TFN needs. Following that, there will be a members vote on whether or not to approve the project. â€œTFN will also be consulting with its leaseholders and the broader community at the appropriate time,â€? Baird said. â€œIf TFN members approve of the project going ahead, TFN will enter into lease agreements with our potential partners.â€? The actual design and tenant mix of the project will not be determined until project approval is granted. â€œWe are working with our potential partners to ensure that the design highlights and promotes Tsawwassen First Nation and Coast Salish culture and traditions,â€?

Adam Hanson was shot and killed at a Surrey house party in 2008.
Life in jail for New Yearâ€™s murder Friend shot Adam Hanson at a 2008 party by Sheila Reynolds A MAN WHO SHOT his friend in the head at a New Yearâ€™s Eve party in Surrey nearly four years ago will serve life in prison with no chance to parole for at least 10 years. Jamie Harris, also known as Jamie Farrell, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in Vancouver Supreme Court in September. While seconddegree murder carries an automatic life sentence, by law, parole eligibility can be set anywhere between 10 and 25 years. On Monday, Harris was told he could not apply for parole until heâ€™s served a minimum 10 years in prison. Adam Hanson, 29, was killed on Dec. 31, 2008 at a house party near 112 Avenue and 134 Street in Surrey. Harris, now 33, wasnâ€™t charged until August 2010. The court heard that Harris, who had taken a gun to the party, intervened during an argument Hanson was having with a woman, and shot the victim in the head. When Harris entered his guilty plea in September, Hansonâ€™s mother issued a public statement thanking witnesses for coming forward. â€œIt took a lot of courage for the witnesses to stand up and tell the truth and for Jamie to admit responsibility,â€? said Janet Hanson. â€œWe, as a family, are hoping that, if anything positive can come from this tragedy, it is our restored faith that people will stand up for justice and tell the truth.â€?

Family law overhauled Sweeping changes to reﬂect modern trends by Tom Fletcher THE B.C. government
has introduced sweeping changes to family law, to reflect modern trends from test-tube babies to the rising number of commonlaw relationships. B.C. now has three times the number of couples moving in together as are getting married, and those common-law relationships are more likely to break up. The legislation treats those similar to a marriage, in caring for children and division of assets. The new Family Law Act is designed to encourage out-ofcourt settlements in family breakups, which account for about one fourth of all cases in B.C. courts. It does away with the terms “custody” and “access” and emphasizes parental responsibility and guardianship instead, with new penalties for parents who refuse to provide parenting time or fail to spend time with
children as agreed or ordered by a judge. The act also creates a new protection order for cases involving family violence, with any breach of the order treated as a criminal offence. Eugene Raponi, a family lawyer and mediator in Victoria, said common-law spouses currently have a difficult process to divide assets if they split up. The new legislation exempts inherited assets from settlements, and whether the couple is married or not, it calls for even division of assets accumulated while they are together. It also protects voluntary agreements from being overturned by a judge, and provides for mediation and arbitration to reach agreements. The new law clarifies legal status for children where sperm or egg donors are used. An “intent to parent” definition ensures that donors do not have legal standing as parents.

Zoo giraffe dies Staff mourning Black Press STAFF AND volunteers
at the Greater Vancouver Zoo are shocked and saddened by the loss of “Amryn,” the young male Rothschild giraffe. Amryn was found Monday morning on the ground inside his barn and was treated aggressively, but he died shortly thereafter. Zoo veterinarian Dr. Bruce Burton performed a full examination, and a pathologist who has a primary interest and many years of experience in exotic animals was called in. A full post mortem was performed by the pathologist, but at this time the cause of the death is unknown. “Results from the post mortem of Amryn will be announced as soon as they are completed,” said Burton. Amryn was born Dec. 20, 2007 at the zoo. His mother Eleah and father Jafari both still live at the zoo.

Recover costs from guilty staff, B.C. told Review advises retrieval of legal fees for employees by Tom Fletcher THE B.C. government should try to recover legal fees paid on behalf of employees found guilty of crimes related to their employment, according to an outside review of the policy released last Thursday. University of B.C. president Stephen Toope was appointed in May to review the province’s policy of covering legal fees for public servants who are sued or charged in connection with their duties. Toope concluded that there are valid reasons to protect accused employees, but if they are found guilty, action to recover costs should be automatic. The review was sparked by a $6 million payout to settle legal fees for ministerial assistants Dave Basi and Bobby Virk, who abruptly pleaded guilty this spring to taking
bribes in connection with the sale of BC Rail operations in 2002. Their prosecution stretched out for seven years, mostly due to wrangling over defence demands for disclosure of thousands of government documents. Toope was not asked to review the payout in the Basi-Virk case, which is being investigated by B.C. AuditorGeneral John Doyle. The existing policy leans heavily on the discretion of bureaucrats, and was added to over the years in response to specific cases. The first time defence costs were paid in a B.C. criminal case was when former premier Glen Clark was charged with breach of trust involving a casino licence granted to a neighbour. Clark was acquitted. Two deputy ministers reviewed the Basi-Virk case and concluded the
accused had nowhere near the assets to cover their legal bills, so the province paid the bills and didn’t try to recover the cost. Attorney General Shirley Bond promised Thursday that the government will take away the discretion to make that choice in future cases. New regulations will specify cost recovery from

slightly higher rate than their counterparts across the province. According to completion rate statistics released by the Ministry of Education, more than 83 per cent of students – compared to 80 per cent provincewide – got their Dogwood diploma within six years of starting Grade 8. At 86 per cent, the female completion rate in Surrey is the highest its been in four years. About 81 per cent of males finished high school in the same time. Still, just 54 per cent of Surrey’s aboriginal students got their diploma within six years – a figure on par with the provincial average. While low compared to the general student population, the aboriginal rate in Surrey has increased nearly three per cent since the 20092010 school year. “We have a long road in front of us, but we are heading in the right direction,” said Trustee Laurie Larsen, who said she is of aboriginal heritage herself. Completion rates differ from graduation rates in that they’re determined by tracking the number of students entering Grade 8 who finish high school within six years. The graduation rate tracks students enrolled in Grade 12 as of Sept. 30 who graduate within one year.

will offer vitamin D supplements to all 7,500 residents at the region’s care homes in an effort to reduce the number and cost of bone fractures among the elderly. Although vitamin D is critical to healthy bones and muscles, it’s not standard in residential care facilities, where residents are less likely to get the nutrient through sunlight. The new protocol – the first of its kind in Canada – calls for most residents to get a 20,000 IU weekly dose unless they opt out or have conditions like renal failure. Fraser Health officials estimate the vitamins will cost the region less than $20,000 a year, while the cost of treating one broken hip ranges from $18,000 to $30,000. “We know that seniors with fallrelated injuries tend to stay in hospital twice as long as seniors hospitalized for all other reasons,” Fraser Health CEO Dr. Nigel Murray said. “This protocol will help to decrease falls and keep seniors in their own homes.” Fabio Feldman, Fraser’s manager of seniors fall and injury prevention, estimated the vitamin D supple-
ments can prevent 10 to 25 per cent of falls in care homes. He said that could translate into 1,000 fewer falls per year in Fraser. The region was responding to research that shows high levels of vitamin D deficiency in older seniors in Canadian residential care homes. Vitamin D can help strengthen muscles,
which is important in maintaining balance and mobility. Officials also cite other vitamin D benefits, such as a possible reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and some forms of cancer, along with potentially improved immune response and anti-inflammatory benefits. firstname.lastname@example.org

Nominations Sought for Heritage Awards The Delta Heritage Advisory Commission is seeking nominations for the prestigious 2012 Heritage Awards. Two types of heritage awards are presented to projects, individuals or groups:
Heritage Awards of Merit In recognition of contribution to conserving a valuable part of Delta’s urban or rural history in the area of preservation, restoration, rehabilitation or adaptive re-use.
Friends of Heritage Awards For promoting heritage conservation through efforts that contribute to increased awareness of heritage in Delta in the area of education, publication or advocacy.
Chief Doug LePard, testifying last week on the findings of his review of the Pickton case for the VPD, said Mounties wanted to interview Pickton in the fall of 1999 about the vanishing women but inexplicably agreed to delay the interrogation when the pig farmer’s brother Dave urged police to wait “until the rainy season.” When the interrogation happened in January 2000, LePard said it seemed ill-planned. The RCMP didn’t tell the VPD they planned to question Pickton or share the results, he said, something he didn’t understand since Pickton was on a police short list of three men considered violent to prostitutes who might be the serial killer stalking them. “It was an investigation that was obviously of great interest to the VPD,” LePard said. Pickton also offered at the same time to let Mounties search his farm but they declined. Police had by then already heard from multiple tipsters that Pickton could be killing prostitutes at his Port Coquitlam pig farm and that he had easy ways to dispose of bodies. Some informants told them Pickton associate Lynn Ellingsen witnessed him butchering a woman in his barn one night in 1999. When RCMP officers interviewed Ellingsen she denied seeing any-
thing. But LePard told the inquiry he believed the Mounties were too quick to believe her rather than the informants, arguing she had logical motives to lie – notably the steady flow of money she was getting from Pickton. He also said Ellingsen, who sometimes brought prostitutes to the farm, should have been counted as a possible accomplice with yet more reason to lie. Pickton was convicted partly on the strength of Ellingsen’s eventual testimony against him. Much of the RCMP’s involvement in the case came after Pickton tried to murder a prostitute who escaped from the farm in early 1997 – charges that were dropped in 1998. Another error LePard listed was the RCMP’s failure to quickly test the boots and clothing seized from him after the bloody 1997 attack for matches to missing women. Those items stayed in an evidence locker until 2004, when tests on them finally found DNA of murder victims Cara Ellis and Andrea Borhaven. The RCMP and VPD in 2001 formed a joint task force to investigate the missing women cases. Pickton kept killing until his arrest in early 2002, when a rookie RCMP officer got a warrant to search for illegal
guns on the farm and blocked the release of found ID of missing that information and women. undermined the work At least a dozen of VPD geographic women went missing profiler Kim Rossmo. between 1997 and PickHe responded that ton’s 2002 arrest, includ- VPD Insp.

Surrey prisoner says he’s anxious to ‘live a better life’ Jason Cook earned a degree behind bars and has been clean since 2006 proven untrue – and that there was a gun in the vehicle, Pike said. The shotgun and some shells were found in a storage area located over a rear wheel well, and Cook and one other man were arrested, Pike said. Cook told police the shotgun was his, Pike noted. Gordon took the fact it was not being used for anything nefarious at the time of arrest into account in sentencing. “The gun seemed to
be safely out of sight… only brought to police attention not for something you did,” she told Cook. In addition to the further 22 months incarceration, Gordon ordered Cook to submit a DNA sample and prohibited him from owning or possessing any weapons “for the rest of your life.” It is an order he’s been given before, Pike noted in his submissions. email@example.com

Pike added. Online court records note Cook’s record also includes possession of stolen property and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle in August 2004. Cook was last arrested the afternoon of March 29, 2010, after police found a loaded sawed-off shotgun in a Dodge Durango that had mechanical difficulties near the Langley/ Abbotsford border. The incident began “somewhat innocuously,” Pike told Gordon. Pike explained that an RCMP officer who happened to stop by the scene discovered the female driver was actually prohibited from being behind the wheel. The officer ran the Durango’s licence plate and found it had been tampered with to change a “C” to an “O,” Pike said. After the driver’s arrest, she whispered to the officer that she was being held against her will – a point later
A SURREY man who got clean, finished high school and earned a bachelor’s degree in business management while behind bars will spend another 22 months in jail before he gets the chance to prove to the public that he’s changed for the better. And Jason Vincent Cook knows his odds of continuing on a positive path are better if he serves his time in a provincial facility. Federal prison is where he became addicted to drugs, Cook told Judge Ellen Gordon during his recent sentencing hearing in Surrey Provincial Court. The Nov. 1 hearing followed guilty pleas on charges of possession of a loaded, prohibited firearm and possession of a firearm while prohibited. The brief statement affirmed comments by Cook’s lawyer, Ondine Snowdon, who outlined for the court her client’s efforts to turn
his life around. The Edmonton-born 31-year-old has been clean from cocaine since 2006, Snowdon said. In addition to efforts to further his education, Cook has reconnected with his mother while serving time for the past two months in a Vancouver Island facility. He has also been assured a job upon his release, she said. He is “anxious to get out and live a better life,” she said. Snowdon noted her client has struggled with addiction since he was 15 years old – a condition Gordon acknowledged has factored into much of Cook’s criminal history. Crown Crichton Pike noted that history includes a 2006 incident in which an individual who intervened in an altercation between Cook and another person ended up with his throat slashed. Cook dropped a homemade pipe bomb at that scene,

Inside Track ...with Dan Jukich It’s that time of year again when your dreams of owning a standardbred can become a reality. Have you circled the date? The annual Yearling and Mixed Sale is set for next Monday (Nov. 21) at the Agriplex on the Cloverdale Fairgrounds. Prepare yourself for an exciting night with the bidding and buying starting at 6 p.m. Over 65 yearlings have been consigned and there are still many from the Robert Murphy operation – Red Star horses – that will be sent to the auction by Mr. Murphy’s wife Mary. We’ve had several readers ask how one gets into the harness racing business and the ﬁrst item on the agenda is to ﬁnd a trainer where both parties are comfortable. The next step is ﬁnd a horse that you and your trainer think has potential. Nothing is a ‘lock’ in this business so you must remember that while there is plenty of upside in purchasing a horse, there is also the potential of heartbreak. You could be buying the next champion at Fraser Downs or one that could wind up racing in the lower levels. Oh, another thing: Before your horse starts in a race you and your partners will require a license from the Gaming Policy & Enforcement Branch (GPEB) and Standardbred Canada. Once those details are looked after, you’re good to go. I hope you caught the chance last Friday to watch some of the action from BC Breeders’ Classic Day and particularly the great show put on eastern-based driver Scott Zeron who just happens to be one of the best in North America. Flown in by Rick Lancaster, the 22-year-old Zeron won four of eight drives to push his purse winnings to over $7 million this year alone! He also insisted on donating his Fraser Downs purse earnings Friday to the Royal Canadian Legion, a gesture that was matched by management at The Downs. Driver Tim Brown shared the spotlight by driving the winners in both the Mary Murphy Stakes (Red Star Hannah) for 3-year-old ﬁllies and the Robert Murphy (Gramrun Jake) for 3-year-old colts and geldings. Do not forget that racing now takes place only on Friday nights (7 p.m.) and Sunday afternoons (1:45 p.m.) See you there.

Morningstar has another single-family hit on its hands
Amberleigh off and running in Coquitlam Morningstar is off to a strong start already with its newest development, Amberleigh in Coquitlam’s Burke Mountain area. Sales were set to begin on Nov. 12, but Morningstar Vice-President of Sales and Marketing Deborah Calahan says that there was already a lineup on Nov. 11. Several people camped out overnight to ensure that they got the first pick of the homes when they opened for sale at 8 a.m. “We are so pleased with the response to our fifth and newest community on Burke Mountain,” Calahan says. “I think it is a combination of value, brand – a name you know and can trust – and our previous success at Avondale.” Avondale was Morningstar’s last singlefamily project at Burke Mountain, which was
released earlier this year to great fanfare. Morningstar started with a first release of 10 homes, which sold out quickly. They made the decision to release four more homes to keep up with the demand, and by noon, those were sold as well. Calahan says that they plan to release another set of homes this weekend, so buyers are encouraged to check out www. mstarhomes.com or call 604-464-4440 for more details on the next release and for more information on Amberleigh. The homes range from 3,096 to 3,238 square feet, with three different floorplans to choose from. Starting at $649,900, they will showcase some of the most amazing features on the market, including detached rear garages and the option of a finished basement.
‘The best-designed urban village in the market’
Larco hits a peak with Summit House by Kerry Vital
If you’re looking for a perfect mix of style, convenience, comfort and beauty, you need look no further than The Summit House at Morgan Crossing, by Larco Investments Ltd. The mostly two-bedroom apartment units, some with a separate loft area and a few with three bedrooms, range from 856 to 1,261 square feet, and every single one is packed full of amazing features like elegant tile or ceramic backsplashes and quartz countertops. But it’s the location that is one of the most impressive features.
For single people looking to meet people, it is perfect,” says Cam Good, president of The Key Marketing. “(Morgan Crossing) is arguably the best-designed urban village in the market,” says Cam Good, president of The Key Marketing. With tons of shopping and services literally on your doorstep, homeowners at The Summit House will never be far from the action. “We have had a huge number of restarts,” says Good, meaning people who are looking for a change in their lives, often after the end of a relationship. “They don’t want to be alone ... for single people looking to meet people, it is perfect.” Of the 101 homes, about a quarter have been sold since the development opened for sale in September, Good says. One of the biggest draws so far has been the high ceilings. Ceiling heights are between nine and 11 feet, lending an incredible sense of space to every room. Richly stained hardwood laminate flooring is featured throughout the entry, kitchen, living and dining rooms, and every bedroom includes thick plush carpeting. A special feature of every home is an electric fireplace. Other thoughtful details include the soft-close drawers in the kitchen and the roomy white bathtub with a hand-set tile surround and polished chrome accessories by Kohler. Every floorplan has been designed to maximize natural light, so you’ll never feel crowded. If you’re looking to catch a bit of sun or do some gardening, Summit House
features a private rooftop garden that spans over an acre. It includes a fire pit, community garden, barbecue area and a deck for sunning. “This space isn’t available to the general public because it’s on the top of the building,” says Good. “It’s the biggest outdoor deck that I know of.” If you’re looking for a bit more privacy, most homes include a large outdoor patio or balcony. If entertaining is on your to-do list, Summit House is perfect for that too. With the shops downstairs ranging from Thrifty Foods to Everything Wine and Mink A Chocolate, everything is available for putting together that perfect dinner party. Homes at Summit House are movein ready and start at $269,900 for a limited time. For more information visit www.thesummithouse.ca or call 604-541-4705.
The Summit House at Morgan Crossing features a large shared outdoor space, above, perfect for doing some gardening or holding a barbecue. The spacious ﬂoorplans are great for entertaining groups of all sizes, top, especially with the beautiful natural light featured throughout.

Former Surrey Ram has his best season as a pro
An all-star and record setter I by Rick Kupchuk
t’s already been a season to remember for B.C. Lions kicker Paul McCallum. But two victories away from a second Grey Cup championship, the Surrey native is looking ahead, and not back on what was quite possibly his best in 19 seasons in the Canadian Football League. “After the the season, maybe I’ll enjoy it,” he said after practice Tuesday afternoon at the Lions practice facility in Whalley. “But miss a field goal now and it could all be over.” In a week in which the Lions were preparing for the Western Final against the Edmonton Eskimos Sunday at B.C. Place, the CFL announced McCallum, 41, had earned a second CFL All-star honour, following up on his first a year ago. He is also the West Division nominee for the Top Special Teams player, both honours well-deserved after a recordsetting season. McCallum set a record for consecutive field goals with Paul McCallum 30, and his success rate of 94.3 per cent broke former Lion kicker Lui Passaglia’s old record of 90.9 per cent. He also established a new consecutive converts record of 662, a streak which began when he was successful on his first attempt for the Ottawa Rough Riders in 1993. While admitting he might look back on his success after the season, for now he’s shrugging it off. “I wouldn’t say I’m surprised, I wouldn’t say anything, because I didn’t sit and ponder on what I wanted to do,” he said. “I just put my head down and just tried to make every kick every game.” The former Surrey Ram didn’t miss many field goals during the regular season, connecting on 50 of 53 attempts. His only misses were from 45, 47 and 57 yards. Inside the 40-yard line, he was perfect on 39 attempts. “It means a lot, it’s probably the marquee statistic you’re guaged by,” said McCallum of his accuracy record. “For me, it’s the most important stat I have. At the same time, I still think to myself the ones I missed I shouldn’t have. I just made some mental mistakes. Hopefully, I can improve on that next season.” There is still more to accomplish this season. Should the Lions win Sunday, they will play in the Grey Cup game for just the 10th time in the team’s 56-year history, a remarkable feat since B.C. lost six of its first seven games this season.
Scoreless tie for United by Rick Kupchuk HELD TO A scoreless tie by a
midpack team, the Surrey United Firefighters lost ground in the Vancouver Metro Soccer League’s Premier Division standings. The defending champions played to a 0-0 tie with ICSF Inter Saturday afternoon in Vancouver, bringing a three-game win streak to an end.

B.C. Lions kicker Paul McCallum (left) talks with quarterback Jarious Jackson during practice Tuesday in Whalley. A former swurrey Ram, McCallum has been named to the CFL ALl-Star team and is a ﬁnalist for the Top Special Teams Player award. The turnaround was sudden, but not surprising, said McCallum. “That’s what they were, stupid mistakes on our part,” he said. “Once we realized mentally what we had to do, we did that. You can take a team full of superstars, but unless they’re willing to work and play within the who scheme of things, it doesn’t matter. It just took us a while to come around and do just that.” ■ In his first year as a bona fide Canadian Football League starter, kicker Sean Whyte made the most of his opportunity, and he may soon have some new hardware to
prove it. The 26-year-old White RockSouth Surrey Titans and Surrey Rams alum, who plays for the Montreal Alouettes, was named last week as the CFL’s Eastern Conference nominee for the Most Outstanding Canadian award. Whyte is in his first year with Montreal, after spending the previous few seasons with his hometown B.C. Lions, where he split time with veteran kicker Paul McCallum, whom the team elected to keep instead of Whyte. Whyte was dealt to Montreal in
May for a future first-round draft pick. The move paid off for the Alouettes, as Whyte finished the regular season hitting 45-of-52 field goal attempts, and was tied for second in the league with 197 points. At one point in the season, he also connected on a club-record 24 straight field goals. Whyte goes up against the Western nominee, Edmonton Eskimos’ running back Jerome Messam, for the top Canadian award. Like Whyte, Messam is also a former Lion.

in the Southern Conference, the Seaquam Seahawks were eliminated in the opening round of the Senior AA playoffs by an opponent they had easily handled six weeks earlier. The Seahawks lost 35-16 to the Rick Hansen Hurricanes Saturday night at B.C. Place, bowing out of the playoffs in the round of 16. Seaquam topped the Hurricanes 33-6 on Oct. 1. Playing without several starters due to injury, the Seahawks took a pair of leads early in the game, before turnovers led to a pair of Rick Hansen touchdowns which blew open a close four-point game. Scoring touchdowns for Seaquam were Taylor Northway and Mark Lego, while Keegan Lensink added a field goal. Lensink added an interception, while Chris Hoegler led all Seahawks on defence with nine tackles. The Holy Cross Crusaders were also eliminated, losing 34-18 to the Ballenas Whalers Friday in Nanaimo.

Bodwell, Tran lead Inferno STANDOUT GOALKEEPING from
Jacqueline Bodwell and Aileen Tran helped the Guildford Inferno to a 3-0 win over the Sur-Del Scorpions in a girls under-18 Bronze soccer game. Bodwell stopped everything sent her way, while Tran was solid on the back line as the game remained scoreless at half time. Tran took the goalie gloves for the second half and made four difficult saves to preserve the shutout. Meanwhile, Bodwell opened the scoring after good work from Esha Sidhu and Paven Sandhar set her up. The second goal came when Amber Vanderpol went down the left wing and crossed for Sandhar to
score. Daniella Pozzobon rounded out the scoring on the last kick of the game directly from a corner kick. Other strong efforts came from Michelle Birston, Harleen Gill, Hanna Barrett and Natasha Minenok.

Eagles win in Victoria PacWest basketball season underway by Rick Kupchuk THE KWANTLEN Eagles women’s basketball team earned a split on a season-opening two-game trip to Vancouver Island last weekend. The Eagles posted a 74-69 win over the Camosun Chargers Friday night in Victoria, before falling 75-47 to the Vancouver Island University Mariners Sunday in Nanaimo. Kwantlen came back from a 53-48 halftime deficit for their victory, the first of the 2011-12 Pacific Western Athletic Association (PacWest) season. Anna Work, a third-year transfer from Everett, Washington, led the team in her first game as an Eagle with 16 points and seven steals. Also making an impact were two first-year
players from Holy Cross High School, Jeannine Yngresso and Jessica Villadiego, as well as Cassie Micona of Mission. “Jessica played amazing defense on Camosun’s best scorer,” said Eagles assistant coach Emily Wright. “Cassie came off the bench and hit back to back threes to put us ahead, and Anna and Jeannine came through with huge steals at the end of the game.” The Eagles men’s team also made the trip to Vancouver Island, and came up short in a close game Friday before falling 81-51 to the Mariners on Saturday. Kwantlen took a 43-41 lead into the second half against the Chargers, but were outscored by 15 points in the third quarter. They exploded for 32 fourth
quarter points, but came up short 97-92. A.J. Adusei of North Delta was the top scorer for the Eagles on the weekend, scoring 72 points in the two games. “We have to find production, points-wise, from the other players,” said head coach Stefon Wilson. “In Saturday’s game, I was proud of our defense, only giving up 81 points. But there are two sides to the game of basketball, and it’s important that we get back into the gym and get extra shots up outside of our regular practice time this week.” The two Eagles teams will play away from home again next weekend, visiting the Capilano Blues in North Vancouver on Friday, and the Quest University Kermodes Saturday in Squamish.

Is there life outside the underworld? In the second novel in his Daaku series, author Ranj Dhaliwal explores the complexity of a gangster’s urge to turn his life around BOAZ JOSEPH / THE LEADER
Surrey’s Ranj Dhaliwal has recently released his second novel, Daaku: The Gangster’s Life.
“I was shot down by my crew who thought they figured out a way to take my business, but they failed to seal the deal with a bullet in my head. I’ve been given a second chance, a real chance at doing what I didn’t get to do. Will my sins dictate my actions in this new life or will I be given a chance to make things right? I’ve been reincarnated and this is my karma.” – Excerpt from Daaku: The Gangster’s Life by Sheila Reynolds
ying in his hospital bed, Ruby Pandher thinks back to what began as a seemingly normal night. The night he got shot. He remembers the sounds – shouting, shuffling of feet, squealing and beeping. And then his memories fade, as does the beeping noise. The next thing he feels is a warm hand on his arm. It’s his mom’s. Tears in her eyes, she calls Ruby her prince and tells him “Puut, Rubb nay tenu buchiiya.” God saved you. Ruby, the protagonist at the centre of Ranj Dhaliwal’s second novel, Daaku: The Gangster’s Life, is a big-time criminal who this time, instead of delivering the violence, has been on the receiving end. And in hospital, he’s come to the realization that it’s his own crew who has targeted him. The story picks up precisely where the first novel, simply titled Daaku, ended. The debut book, released in 2006, introduced the reader to Ruby and followed his progression from committing petty crimes to becoming a powerful daaku – Punjabi for outlaw. Now recovering from four bullet wounds and separated from what he thought was his loyal gang, Ruby is torn. As a gangster who deftly climbed the underworld’s corporate ladder, his instinct is to seek revenge. But a chance at love and the prospect of his ill-equipped little brother following in his footsteps has him doing battle with his conscience. The ever-present lure of glamour and wealth makes Ruby’s decision even more
difficult. “It’s like a magnet that life – it keeps trying to pull him back,” explains Dhaliwal, a Surrey resident. “That’s the way the gangster life is – the money is good. And he loves the power and pride.” The 275-page book illustrates the almost-impossible struggle, with Ruby involved in drug trafficking and targeted hits, mixed with violent temple politics and an old boss who has big, albeit sinister, plans for him. Still, he wonders, what would a normal life outside the underworld be like? “What I wanted to show was he wants out,” Dhaliwal says. “He knows what right and wrong is.” The 35-year-old author initially began writing his gangland saga after watching friends and classmates become consumed – and some eventually killed – by the deadly lifestyle. It was something people seemed to know about, with rumours swirling in the community, but was a topic no one wanted to talk about. Dhaliwal has since become heavily involved in political and community activism, often speaking on organized crime to high school and university students and working alongside police, speaking to officers about gangs. He also became an initiated Sikh in late 2007 (after the publication of his first novel) and is now helps coordinate programs for youth and is responsible for bringing Sikh leaders from India to tour various Panthic Sikh temples that abide by the Sikh Code of Conduct. He works as a paralegal and, balancing his volunteer work, writes on a parttime basis only. “It’s still my hobby,” Dhaliwal says. His eight-month-old son, he admits, is also winning much of his attention these days. “He just learned to say Daddy,” he laughs. “It doesn’t matter what I’m doing, when I hear that, I go straight to him.” So far, Dhaliwal says he’s been getting great feedback on the new book – and that, he says, is only encouraging him to further pursue and perfect his writing. “That makes me think ‘I want to do an even better job next time’.” A third novel in the Daaku series is due out in 2013. Daaku: The Gangster’s Life is available at Chapters locations across Canada.

NOTICE ENTRANCES TO SURREY MEMORIAL HOSPITAL New south entrance off 94A Avenue Effective immediately there is a new public entrance to Surrey Memorial Hospital, complete with ramp and canopy, off 94A Avenue. As a result, the trafﬁc pattern in the adjacent parking lot has changed slightly. To use the dropoff or to park in the stalls closest to it, you must enter the parking lot at the east end (closer to 138 Street) and exit at the existing street entrance near the entrance to the underground parking. The route will be clearly marked with signs. If you plan to park underground or in the stalls near the Charles Barham Pavilion, you can still enter the lot through the existing entrance closest to the underground parking entrance.
One to remember
Call it fateful math or just good timing, but Alyssa Neithercut celebrated her 11th birthday on Nov. 11, 2011.
Entry to west side of South Building For those who previously entered the hospital via the west-side door in the South Building, please access it through the elevators on the ﬁrst level of the underground parking.
Main entrance moved to 138 Street The hospital’s main entrance has been moved from 96 Avenue to 138 Street, where it will remain for up to two years as the north lobby is expanded and rebuilt. There is still a wheelchairaccessible pedestrian entrance on the north side for patients and visitors accessing units in that area of the hospital. We appreciate your patience during our renovations and construction. We remain committed to providing the best care possible to you, our patients, while we continue creating possibilities together at our regional campus of care.

Growing a holly, jolly holiday season we use to decorate our gardens and homes during the Christmas season, holly is still the most popular. Native to the British Isles and southern and central Europe, Ilex aquifolium, or English holly, is the traditional Christmas holly. While traveling in England last fall, I noticed large forests of oaks with holly growing underneath as a companion plant. The Latin name aquifolium means needle-leafed, but many new varieties are much friendlier. The use of holly dates back to Roman times when it was an emblem of goodwill and was sent from one home to another during the Festival of Saturn, celebrated from the 17th to the 19th of December. The Christmas custom of decorating homes with holly prob-
ably dates back to this time. The pagans in the British Isles were very superstitious, and holly played an important role in their lives. Holly and ivy were used in fertility rites during the Fire Festival, which took place around the time of Christmas. When Christian missionaries attempted to convert the pagans, it was often easier to accept pagan superstitions and incorporate them into the mainstream of Christian life. Instead of being a symbol of welcome, good luck and eternal life, holly thorns came to signify the Passion of Christ and the berries, drops of blood. Other superstitions persisted. A holly tree, growing near one’s home, was believed to protect the family from thunder and lightning.
Holly was also hung before mistletoe, otherwise bad luck would come down the chimney on Christmas Eve. After Christmas, holly must be taken down before Epiphany Eve (Jan. 5), but a sprig should be retained to protect the house against lightning. You could sure get into a lot of trouble by not knowing your holly lore. Most older holly varieties were unisexual, meaning both male and female plants were needed for pollination.

Newer varieties, developed over the years, have eliminated the need for two trees. This is good news for smaller landscapes that can accommodate only one tree. All variegated forms, however, need a pollinator. Self-fertile varieties make good pollinators. In the case of hardy blue hollies, both male and female plants can be planted together in the same hole and thus save space. The best English varieties to plant are the

self-fertile San Gabriel (which produces seedless berries) and the hardier San Jose Hybrid. I have seen both of these varieties produce berries even as small plants, which is so different from the older types. One of the most popular holly varieties today, however, is the Dutch variety, J.C. Van Tol. Unlike its English counterpart, its leaves are much smoother – a real treat when you are making wreaths or door swags. This variety also produces berries even as a small plant and is absolutely loaded as it grows up to 30 feet. One of the newer compact hollies is a hardy variety called I.a. Red Beauty. Growing only 7-10 feet tall in a conical form, it’s an ideal patio specimen or small garden holly. It is self fertile and hardy to zone 6. The newer and more compact blue hollies, Blue Boy and Blue Girl are a cross between the aquifoliums and Ilex rugosas, which give

them the hardiness rating of zone four. Blue Prince and Blue Princess varieties seem to be far more popular. Their compact habit and black-green leaves provide a lovely contrast to their large, bright red berries. In spite of their hardy nature, treat them like a traditional broad-leafed plant and keep them out of winter winds. The variegated forms of English holly are in great demand each Christmas, but unfortunately, very few are grown in home gardens. The silver and green leafed variety, Argenteo-marginata is, by far, the most popular. Golden King is one of the best golden variegated varieties, and like
the Dutch variety, has almost spineless leaves. Both need pollinators. One of the hottest berried plants for this time of year is a totally unique deciduous holly called Ilex verticillata. When the leaves fall off, a stunning display of vibrant red berries smother the branches. While in high demand by the floral industry for Christmas décor, they are also the number one choice of birds for winter food. You need both a male and a female for pollination, so make sure you purchase two plants or a pot with both male and female together. It’s that time of year again when we start thinking about decorating our gardens for Christmas, and holly is certainly a universal favourite. If you want to grow at least one in your landscape, remember: They need very good drainage. Brian Minter is a master gardener who operates Minter Gardens in Chilliwack.

Surrey Museum phase 2 on city agenda $450,000 plan to add more space to existing facility moves ahead by Jennifer Lang PHASE TWO of the Surrey Museum is back on the city’s radar screen. Surrey council has agreed move forward with the second phase of the museum, allaying fears the project had stalled. In doing so, council acted on the city’s draft Cultural Plan, which recommends completing phase two to meet growing demand. The city will now develop a concept plan for phase two using a reserve fund of $450,000 that’s been set aside for the past several years. The reserve fund consists of $250,000 from the Friends of the Surrey Museum and Archives Society and $200,000 from the City of Surrey, matching funds it put forward after the society raised $1.6 million to build the new museum – now a centrepiece of downtown Cloverdale. The announcement is encouraging news for the Friends of the Surrey Museum Society. In November 2010, the board sent a delegation to city hall, reminding council of the $450,00 held in reserve and of council’s 2003 promise to complete phase two within 10 years.
LEADER FILE PHOTO
The City of Surrey is moving forward with a plan to add more space to the Surrey Museum in Cloverdale. The existing museum – completed seven years ago – is 24,000 square feet in size, less than half of the original proposal, which called for a 60,000-sq.-ft. facility. When the second phase wasn’t included in the Build Surrey program, a plan outlining capital projects, the project appeared to have stalled, board
member Sharon Shilliday wrote in a Sept. 18 letter to Mayor Dianne Watts. Worried that the project wouldn’t see completion by the
target date of 2013, members began actively lobbying city council. The museum completed seven years ago is 24,000 square feet

in size – less than half of the original proposal, which called for a 60,000-sq.-ft. facility. Due to cost constraints, the project was scaled back on the understanding that the second phase would follow within a decade. The building’s east wall has been constructed with that plan in mind. More space would allow the museum to bring in traveling national exhibits that are too large for the existing exhibit hall – and would increase the amount of storage for Surrey’s historic treasures. The society formed in 2000 to raise money to help build a new home for the Surrey Museum, eventually raising $1.6 million. Founder and 2010 Surrey Civic Treasure Al Cleaver recently told Cloverdale business leaders of the $1.6 million raised by the Friends society, $1 million went to building the new museum, $400,000 went to the endowment fund and $200,000 was handed to the City of Surrey, which allocated another $250,000. On Oct. 17, city councillors agreed to direct staff to refocus capital planning efforts on building the long-promised second phase. email@example.com

First Nation to fight oil pipeline expansion Aboriginal band opposes plan that would bring more tankers to the region by Jeff Nagel KINDER MORGAN’S plan to more than double its ability to send crude oil by pipeline through the Lower Mainland to tankers in Burrard Inlet will be opposed by the TsleilWaututh First Nation. The company aims to twin its Trans Mountain pipeline from Alberta, boosting its capacity from 300,000 barrels per year to up to 700,000 and increasing the number of oil tankers that sail past downtown Vancouver. “The risks associated with the Kinder Morgan project are too great to accept,” Tsleil-Waututh Chief Justin George said. The North Vancouver-based band’s traditional territory is centred on Burrard Inlet and takes in the Westridge Marine Terminal in north Burnaby at the end of the 1,150-kilometre pipeline from northern Alberta. Up to 70 double-hulled oil tankers already load up at the terminal each year. They are harnessed to tugs and steered by local pilots through Burrard Inlet, under the Lions Gate and Ironworkers Memorial bridges. George said the Tsleil-Waututh support economic development that balances the environment and economy. But he said the band was “deeply affected” when a construction crew ruptured the Trans Mountain
Up to 70 double-hulled oil tankers already load up at the Westridge Marine Terminal in north Burnaby on Burrard Inlet each year. The TsleilWaututh First Nation is opposing Kinder Morgan’s proposal to double its ability to send crude oil by pipeline from Alberta to the Lower Mainland. pipeline in 2007 and 1,500 barrels of oil spilled, soaking a north Burnaby neighbourhood and the nearby shoreline. “Our inlet has been scarred by the impacts of oil spills and we have seen firsthand the inadequacies of emergency response and clean-up efforts,” George said. “We are disappointed,” Kinder Morgan external relations manager
Lexa Hobenshield said of the TsleilWaututh position, adding the company will continue efforts to discuss its plans with the band. Over the next three months Kinder Morgan is asking prospective customers to signal their interest in using extra pipeline capacity before the company decides whether it will proceed with the roughly $4-billion project.
If it has sufficient backing of customers, Hobenshield said, a comprehensive process of public and stakeholder consultation, environmental and other assessments would begin, leading up to an eventual decision by regulators. An expanded Trans Mountain pipeline would offer Canadian oil companies much greater ability to export oil sands crude to Asia,
reducing their dependence on the U.S. market. That’s also the goal of the rival $6.6-billion Northern Gateway pipeline proposed by Enbridge to cross northern B.C. Kinder Morgan argues its use of an existing corridor is not only less expensive but would mean less environmental impact than Enbridge’s new pipeline route. Enbridge counters its completed line would be more efficient for shippers because its planned deepwater terminal at Kitimat would serve the largest supertankers that cannot enter Burrard Inlet. Many environmental groups oppose both B.C. pipelines and some Metro Vancouver politicians have expressed concern about a Trans Mountain expansion. The Union of B.C. Municipalities voted in September to seek a careful environmental assessment and extensive public consultation of any plan to ship more oil in B.C. The Kinder Morgan pipeline doesn’t just carry oil. It also supplies 90 per cent of the gasoline used in the Lower Mainland. Just 26 tankers have loaded at Westridge so far this year. Hobenshield said demand is cyclical and more oil is being sent south into Washington State via a spur line at Sumas. firstname.lastname@example.org

While the meeting will inevitably draw more people from the Cloverdale and Clayton area, it’s open to voters from throughout the district, Stromberg said. Overcrowding of schools is an issue that impacts many schools throughout the district, she added, particularly Lord Tweedsmuir and Earl Marriott Secondary, both of which have introduced a two-tier staggered schedule this year to accommodate heavy enrolment. “It’s certainly an important
issue for me,” she said. “We’ve been hearing concerns from parents about the impacts the scheduling has had on family life – and it’s also a health and safety issue since there are often lineups for washrooms during breaks, as students are reluctant to visit them during class time.” Voting for trustee candidates will take place Saturday (Nov. 19) as part of the city ballot including both mayoral and councillor candidates. email@example.com
