The ultrasound showed she was having a baby girl – normally good news.

A SEX assault in Surrey led the RCMP to Robert Pickton’s farm in 1990, 12 years and dozens of dead victims before the serial killer would eventually be stopped, the Missing Women Inquiry heard Monday. Retired Mountie Mike Connor, then a Coquitlam RCMP officer, testified he learned in 1997 – while investigating Pickton for attempted murder – of the Surrey RCMP’s interest in the Port Coquitlam pig farmer seven years earlier. Connor’s case involved a sex trade worker who escaped badly bleeding from the Pickton farm in early 1997. He told the inquiry he ran a check of a police database and found Surrey RCMP had Mike Connor flagged Pickton as a person of interest in a 1990 rape and had sent Coquitlam officers to the farm that year to see if a certain vehicle was parked there. But when Connor called Surrey detachment to get the old case file to see if it contained more notes and

Surrey shooting leads to arrest in Delta
Toque Tuesday scores in Surrey Surrey ﬁreﬁghters, RCMP ofﬁcers, Surrey Eagles players, South Fraser Community Services staff, Cityof Surrey employees and homeless people spent the afternoon playing hockey at Tom Binnie Park in North Surrey Tuesday to raise awareness about homelessness. The event, called Toque Tuesday, is held across Canada on the ﬁrst Tuesday in February and is organized by Raise The Roof.
Victim listed in critical condition by Kevin Diakiw SURREY RCMP have one person in custody after the shooting of Aaron Tam, a 28-year-old drug dealer who was known to police for dial-a-dope operations. Tam was getting out of his rented blue Hundai Elantra Tuesday morning at 6 a.m. at 144 Street and 92 Avenue when he was pushed to the ground by someone. That person then opened fire on Tam, shooting him in the leg, body and head. The shooter then hopped into Tam’s car and took off. Tam made his way to a nearby home, where he asked for medical help. He was also able to give an accurate description of the car before being taken to hospital. About an hour-and-a-half later, the car was found in flames Drew Grainger on Bates Road in North Delta, near 72 Avenue, east of Highway 91. A witness said they saw two people leaving the vehicle. Delta police, with aid from emergency response teams who were performing tactical exercises in the area, arrested a 22-year-old with extensive burns to his hands. A weapon in the shooting has not yet been found. Police are recommending charges of arson at this point. “That investigation is ongoing. He remains a person of interest in the shooting file,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Drew Grainger. Tam is in hospital in critical condition, but is expected to survive. He is not cooperating with police.

TransLink audit ahead of more taxes: Watts Surrey mayor slams donation-for-survey plan by Jeff Nagel SURREY MAYOR Dianne Watts says she will
Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts
try to block any new move to raise more taxes or tolls for TransLink until the transportation authority is subjected to a full performance audit. And she says TransLink’s latest example of waste underscores why tighter scrutiny of spending is needed. TransLink has hired a polling firm to survey 170 key stakeholders this month about how well it communicates and to drum up participation it has promised to donate $100 to one
of three local charities for each person who responds. “I take offence,” Watts said. “To go out with a survey about how well we communicate and give $100 per person to a charity – I just don’t think TransLink has a lot of money to be giving away.” Metro Vancouver mayors must negotiate with the provincial government to find new revenue sources for TransLink by the end of this year or else a $23 average property tax increase kicks in to pay for the Evergreen Line and other transit upgrades approved last fall.

Options to raise more money may include an annual vehicle levy, a second regional carbon tax or even broader tolls on Lower Mainland
bridges and roads. But Watts says she refuses to be part of that debate until an audit proceeds – something the provincial government has so far blocked. “I will not go out and ask the general public to pay for one more thing until that audit is done.” If any new revenue sources are to be pursued, Watts said, taxpayers must have confidence their money is being spent appropriately. The Mayors Council on Regional Transportation last month renewed its initial demand last fall for an audit of TransLink, either through B.C.’s Auditor General or the new Auditor General of Local Government (AGLG). “We want to be able to stand up and be confident in saying TransLink is running a tight ship,” said Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender, vice chair of the mayors council.

Women: Often under pressure to produce sons From page 1 Today, Satnam is a single mother of two young daughters. She lives with her mother, a widow herself, and it is uncertain how the women will find the means to care for and feed the children. “I’m going through so much trouble, just for having daughters,” Satnam says. SATNAM IS from India, and her story is chronicled in a video released by the Surrey-based Mamta Foundation of Canada, an organization that works to raise awareness of female feticide. While Satnam had to the courage to fight back, many women cannot. It’s estimated thousands of babies in India are aborted annually because they are female. And India is only one among many countries where males are the preferred offspring. According to the United Nations, there are 117 million women “missing” in Asia – including Vietnam, China, Korea and the Philippines – as the ratio of men to women grows more disproportionate. While the normal birth gender ratio ranges from 102 to 106 males per 100 females, ratios much higher – sometimes as high as 130 males per 100 females – have been recorded in some areas. Those discrepancies, says the UN, are often seen in countries where there are economic restraints or social conventions place greater value on males. “There is huge pressure on women to produce sons… which not only directly affects women’s sexual and reproductive lives with implications for their health and survival, but also puts women in a position where they must perpetuate the lower status of girls through son preference,” according to a joint statement by various UN groups and the World Health Organization. Under the weight of this pressure, some women determine the sex of their unborn baby and obtain an abortion if it is female. If they don’t, say UN experts, women will often face other dire consequences – violence, abandonment, divorce or even death – for having an unwanted girl.
Abortions are also available on demand in Canada. Research by Kevin Milligan, associate professor of economics at the University of B.C., and associates from Columbia University, suggests sex selection is being practised in Canada. “We have documented evidence of a clear son preference among South-East Asian immigrants to Canada,” reads a draft paper entitled, “O Sister, Where Art Thou? The Role of Son Preference and Sex Choice: Evidence from Immigrants to Canada.” The researchers found two primary methods of achieving sons – having children until a male is born, or selecting sons over daughters (likely through abortions). But while their data shows dramatically fewer second-generation (as opposed to first generation) immigrants choose to have multiple children to achieve a boy, the researchers did not observe such a sharp decline between the generations when it comes to sex selection. “It could be argued that unlike a preference for high fertility, a preferQ The controversy ence for sons and a (relative) lack of surrounding aversion to sex selective abortion is ultrasounds for not costly to maintain in the West,” pregnant women says the research paper. and how to For those who work closely with curb the cultural Surrey and Delta’s immigrant compreference for munity, the fact women continue male babies to get rid of unwanted girls is no surprise. According to Pardeep Sahota, director of communications at PICS, one or two of every 50 clients treated at the organization’s women’s health clinic has aborted a female fetus. The women, she says, are not only under immense pressure from families, but sometimes don’t understand their rights in Canada.
MAKHAN DEO / MAMTA FOUNDATION OF CANADA
Satnam, her mother, and her baby daughter in India. LOCAL ACTIVISTS and academics say sex selection isn’t simply an issue in a far-away land. It exists, they assert, in Canada – particularly in communities with large immigrant populations, such as Surrey and North Delta. Charan Gill, CEO of Progressive Intercultural Community Services (PICS), says the issue has migrated with people and outdated belief systems. While not occurring on the same scale as other countries, female feticide in Canada should not be ignored, says a Surrey advocate. “This is a concern because this issue is also in our community,” says Makhan Deo, president of the Mamta Foundation of Canada. “It’s happening not only in India, it’s happening here.” Deo says women are often either sent back to India or across the border to the U.S. to secretly get rid of unwanted babies.
BACK IN India, Satnam rocks her baby, her mom by her side
as they share their tale and wipe tears from their weary faces. Still, the young mom is sure of her decision to keep her baby and face the consequences. “I could have had her aborted. But I am someone’s daughter as well.”

QUESTION OF THE WEEK
Thursday, February 9, 2012
Citizens are not the boor police LETTER WRITER Sheila Gair (The Leader, Jan. 31) “wishes there was a number we could call to report the licence plates of those who think they are above the rules.” While I’m sure she has the best of intentions and I hear frustration speaking, what exactly is she suggesting? Would she truly wish to see a society where neighbours, co-workers, and passers-by are enlisted in a network of civilian informants? It has happened before. The use of citizen informant networks dates at least as far back as the Roman Empire. In more recent times, dictatorships in Czechoslovakia, Poland, Hungary and East Germany thrived due to their citizen informants. The Volkspolizei or Stasi of East Germany were particularly adept at convincing the people to “rat” on each other. There are even stories of children turning in their parents for violations of the rules. Boors will be boors. There will always be people who behave like boors and citizens are not the boor police. Ms. Gair did what she could in questioning this boor’s behaviour and bringing it to his attention that his boorishness had been witnessed. Nothing else can be expected of her. C.A. Archibald Surrey
Too hard on soft drugs RE: SHOOTINGS in Surrey.
Mayor Dianne Watts’ statement about “legalization of drugs is an age old argument that won’t solve the problem” is about as well thought out as her tougher sentences for handguns. Courts are already tossing out major hard drug cases because they took too long to get to trial. Busting more people sure isn’t going to make things better. Next, she will be espousing the power of prayer to deal with issues. That always makes people feel good even if it does nothing. Maybe lock the bad guys up in old churches. Keep up the chuckle quota, Dianne. T. Glatley
LETTERS Legion fading away THE ROYAL CANADIAN Legion
is a dying entity, most unfortunately. The legion has done a tremendous job of providing help for needy veterans and their families since its founding shortly after the First World War. Its famous Poppy Fund, none of which goes to the legion branches for support, is used entirely for charitable work in the community. The legion branches once provided a haven for ex-service men who could get together to relive the war-time experiences with those with whom they served. Entertainment and good fellowship flourished with the great number of veterans who partook of the comradeship offered. Ladies auxiliaries, always an integral part of legion life, helped establish the welcoming atmosphere of Legion membership. Time is beginning to catch up to a membership that, in most cases, is dropping dramatically as the veterans of World War II and Korea, and their wives, move into old age and death. The scant number of veterans from later peacekeeping duties or the battles in Afghanistan are in no way sufficient to fill the ranks of the departed. The legion has opened its membership requirements to all. This, however, hasn’t filled the depleting membership numbers. Another damper upon legion revenues are the stricter liquor laws that have depleted the best revenue asset, the bars. Is there a solution to the problem? I don’t know. But I do know this: Any community in Canada that loses it Royal Canadian Legion branch will be the poorer for it. Mike Harvey, Langley

Fares are unfair AFTER OUR MAYORS voted to impose a two-cent gas
tax last year which is supposed to improve our transit service – help build the Evergreen Line as well as improve SkyTrain and SeaBus service and add rapid buses in Surrey - the TransLink board is asking for another fare increase. TransLink is proposing to increase transit fares by 25 cents for one- and two-zone fares and by 50 cents for three-zone fares, taking our three-zone fares to $5.50 each way. The problem is that Surrey riders will be faced with the biggest increase when we receive the least amount of service. The idea of public transit is that it should be accessible and affordable for people to use. Even the onezone fare increase for Surrey riders is unfair because we simply do not have the level of service they have on the other side of the Fraser. We should urge Mayor Watts to not support this proposed transit fare increase as it is unfair to Surrey transit riders. Imtiaz Popat, Surrey
person of my age and income bracket when I heard that Stephen Harper’s government is going to raise the Old Age Security eligibility age from 65 to 67 or even longer. Why not set an example by bringing in the changes to the pensions of the MPs as well as the cabinet ministers? In six years, an MP will get a greater pension than an average Canadian worker will get after working his/her entire life. If government policy advisers and caucus are sincere enough, then the changes should start from the top. Does the prime minister not feel morally guilty that he is planning to deprive the seniors of their well-deserved benefits, while at the same time, most of the MPs will get a good pension funded by the same taxpayers who he is planning to deprive? Honourable Prime Minister, your scheme to rob and pickpocket the seniors has been exposed and you have been caught red-handed. You should now attempt to save the money from somewhere else; perhaps Canada should spend less money fighting other people’s wars (ie. Afghanistan). You and your party should have been bold and honest enough before the last election to declare this secret agenda. There is no shortage of dishonest, hypocritical and opportunistic politicians and leaders. Please know that you need not to be one of them. Honourable Prime Minister, I urge you to gather the courage to rise above partisan politics, to stand up, and be brave and patriotic enough so as not to punish and rob seniors of their well-deserved right to their earned benefits in their twilight years.

looking at a couple of decades before Surrey passes Vancouver.” The city council policies of both cities is also a factor, he said, noting Surrey could opt to slow the pace of greenfield development and Vancouver might push harder to densify existing neighbourhoods, despite resident opposition. Berlin said the most interesting population changes in the Lower Mainland were the strong gains posted by Squamish and Chilliwack. The two outlying cities are about a 40-minute drive away from Metro Vancouver and offer much lower land prices than Vancouver, he said. “I think that’s why they experienced pretty significant growth – above what we experienced provincially and here in the Lower Mainland,” he said. “Instead of raising your kids in an apartment in Vancouver, maybe you choose a two-bedroom house, yard, swing set, Mr. Turtle pool – that kind of thing.” Cities that grew at the slowest rates – like Delta – did so generally because they didn’t approve construction of very much new housing, Berlin said. Delta saw a 3.3-percent increase in population between 2006 and 2011, bringing the total to 99,863. The bulk of growth in Delta occurred in Annieville, just east of the Alex Fraser Bridge. Metro Vancouver’s strong growth overall is good, Berlin said, in terms of economic growth and the ability to pay for things like health care and schools. But it has its downside. “It puts pressure on land values, it puts pressure on our transportation network.” Immigration, much of it from Asia, remains the main driver of population growth. Metro Vancouver as a whole gained almost 200,000 residents to reach a new population of 2,313,328 – a 9.3-per-cent increase. B.C. gained seven per cent to 4.4 million. The next census will occur in 2016. email@example.com

Connor: Posttraumatic stress From page 1
intelligence on Pickton, he was told it no longer existed. In hindsight, Connor said, he should have spoken to the Surrey investigator about the case, but did not. Pickton was charged with attempted murder and Connor said the victim, referred to at the inquiry as Ms. Anderson, seemed credible and truthful. But he was notified by Crown in January 2008 that the charges would be stayed. Connor said a prosecutor told him Anderson was heavily addicted to heroin and had several times refused to meet them to discuss her evidence. That was the first time Connor said he had heard of trouble with the case. Often, he said, the Crown office would alert police in such instances so they could track down and assist a victim or witness whose testimony is critical. “(There was) no discussion about that,” Connor said, adding the prosecutor had “made up her mind” the charges would be dropped. He didn’t challenge the decision. “I wish I would have said to [her], ‘Give us a few days and we’ll go find her.’ I wish I could have done that.” Connor said in 1998 he heard a tip, relayed by Vancouver Police Det.Const. Lori Shenher, that Pickton was scheming to bring the 1997 victim back to the farm so he could “finish her off.” He met again with Anderson to warn her of the threat. By then, he said, Anderson had cleaned up, left the sex trade and the Downtown Eastside, and seemed normal.
But Connor did not ask Crown to re-launch the attempted murder charge. In mid-1998, Connor and Shenher met Surrey tipster Bill Hiscox, who told the officers he heard Pickton had a meat grinder he could use to dispose of bodies and had bags of bloody clothing and women’s personal effects on the farm. Connor said he found Hiscox credible but police had trouble corroborating his information or getting eyewitnesses to cooperate. Hiscox eventually became hard to locate and less useful to police, he said. Connor said Pickton was on his “radar” as the only viable suspect in the missing women case at the time. The inquiry heard the Coquitlam RCMP investigation lost momentum after Connor was promoted to different duties in 1999. He said he thinks about the case “every day” and suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder. “I live with the fact that 13 women, roughly, disappeared from the Downtown Eastside since I became involved in the Pickton file.” The inquiry aims to determine how authorities failed to stop Pickton much sooner than 2002, when a search for illegal guns turned up evidence of missing women from the Downtown Eastside. Pickton is serving a life sentence for six counts of second-degree murder, but he had claimed to have killed 49 women and the DNA of 33 was found on the farm. firstname.lastname@example.org

Delta mayor sets her sights on the tunnel Staff to study potential ﬁxes to heavy trafﬁc by Kevin Diakiw DELTA’S MAYOR wants improvements to the George Massey Tunnel soon, before several aggravating factors make tube travel nearly impassible. With tolls being implemented on Fraser River crossings, a new South Fraser Perimeter Road, and additional berths being constructed at Deltaport, Mayor Lois Jackson is concerned the George Massey Tunnel is going to become an even bigger traffic nightmare in years to come. Last month, Jackson asked engineering staff to prepare a report on possible impacts to traffic in the coming years. She anticipates dramatic increases in volume. Staff will perform a cursory study and draw up some terms of reference for a private consultant to explore all anticipated problems and potential solutions. Jackson anticipates the consultants study will cost about $60,000. Then Delta can take that document to senior levels of government and make the argument for capital improvements to the tunnel. “It has not been addressed for

Delta moves to evict clunkers from streets Derelict car bylaw there for a reason, says mayor by Kevin Diakiw DERELICT cars are not
long for North Delta as council has endorsed a bylaw outlawing clunkers being stored in residential areas. Increasingly, people are keeping vehicles in various states of disrepair on flatbed trucks or on the backs of tow trucks. Last month, Delta passed a bylaw prohibiting those vehicles from being on any highway or right of way for more than three consecutive hours. In addition, vehicles, or parts of them, without proper licensing and insurance are not allowed on people’s properties. Delta is hoping to both beautify its neighbourhoods and free up some parking as it prepares to legalize secondary suites. “We’re veering into
talking about, ‘okay, where are we going to put all of these cars?’” Mayor Lois Jackson said. “We’re tightening up in the hopes people
will understand we’re trying to keep the values attached to our properties and attached to our community, and put these things where
they belong.” The fine for having a derelict vehicle on a residential property will be $100. email@example.com

Relentless rise in demand stresses Fraser Health by Jeff Nagel ADMITTING its latest push to
cut hospital congestion is not yet working, Fraser Health has turned to a panel of outside experts for advice on what more it can do. The six-member panel â€“ which includes three consultants with expertise in health care, a facilitator and representatives from both Fraser Health and the health ministry â€“ is to table recommendations by the end of March. Fraser CEO Dr. Nigel Murray said the advisers will perform an independent and objective examination of the regionâ€™s efforts to reduce congestion and â€œidentify any ways we can continue to make improvements.â€?

initiative launched last year to encourage home support as an alternative to residential care promises to ease demand for care home beds, helping reduce the numbers of patients staying unnecessarily in hospital. “We are seeing thousands more people accessing home support services,” he said. Home support hours are up nearly eight per cent this year, Murray said, and fewer patients
are being admitted to residential care that have never tried the option of home support. The expert panel is also expected to consider Fraser’s demographic challenges. The region already has the largest and fastest-growing population in the province, as well as the largest proportion of both seniors and the young. That’s compounded by the fact Fraser Health has fewer family doctors and specialists

than its size warrants, she said. Fraser Health estimates it will gain another 327,000 residents, or 20 per cent more, by 2020. “That’s roughly like adding an entire Abbotsford and a Langley to the region’s existing population,” Murray said. The population of seniors over age 65 is forecast to balloon 50 per cent by 2020 to more than 100,000. Dr. Tim Latham, a cardiac surgeon at Royal Columbian, welcomed the appointment of the panel and said he hopes the provincial representative ensures Victoria gets a clear picture of what’s needed. “The biggest problem is capacity,” he said. “You can’t pour two litres of water into a one-litre container.” Dr. Sheldon Glazer, an ER doctor at Royal Columbian and Eagle Ridge hospitals, said it shouldn’t take a panel of experts to conclude that the lack of inpatient beds is the key problem. “At any one time in Fraser Health there are the equivalent of two
hospitals full of patients being placed in hallways in emergency rooms,” he said. Glazer said staff at RCH are intensely frustrated by the endless game of “musical beds” and some are leaving. Patients subjected to hallway medicine for too long suffer not just indignity and unrest, he added, but a higher risk of mortality. “Their risk of dying (during the hospital stay) is doubled if they spend more than 12 hours in emergency before they go up to a ward,” Glazer said. “In our hospital, we have patients spending literally days and days in our emergency. Sometimes weeks.” Fraser’s latest service plan estimated 1,100 more hospital beds will be needed by 2020. A $512-million expansion at SMH will bring a new ER and critical care tower, including 150 beds. But Surrey Memorial remains crowded even after the region opened the nearby Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre. email@example.com

by Kevin Diakiw SURREY wants some of the money obtained by the province through proceeds-of-crime legislation to pay for two local initiatives. Surrey is applying for grants under a civil forfeiture program to pay for a child advocacy centre called Sophie’s Place and the city’s wire theft reduction program. Sophie’s place was just launched this month by Sophie Tweed-Simmons, the daughter of KISS frontman Gene Simmons and Playboy playmate Shannon Tweed. The wire theft program is designed to cut down on the $2.5 million worth of wire stolen in Surrey last year. The money Surrey is after falls under the Civil Forfeitures Program, where B.C. can seize assets that have been used during criminal acts. Most recently, the province sold a Lamborghini that was allegedly used in street racing along Highway 99. It was among 13 vehicles impounded. Surrey is planning to apply for some of the money the province has made from that, and similar sales of suspected criminal assets. The Civil Forfeiture Program has been underway since 2006. The funds are put in reserve to support local governments for local programs targeting crime. Since its inception, the forfeiture office has distributed $1.5 million to local government from its seizure of assets.

Airport fee rises
by Jeff Nagel AIR TRAVELLERS will pay
an extra $5 to fly out of B.C. through Vancouver International Airport (YVR) starting May 1. The planned jump in the Airport Improvement
Fee (AIF) from $15 to $20 is to fund $1.8 billion in improvements to the airport over the next decade. The $5 fee for passengers flying within B.C. or to the Yukon remains unchanged. The authority said the AIF, which was last
increased in 2004, will remain among the lowest in Canada, with many other major airports collecting $25. A10-year strategy has been unveiled to improve YVR’s amenities and improve the airport’s
competitiveness. The aim is to reduce the time for passengers to transit through YVR from 90 minutes to under an hour and better position the airport as an international hub. Future projects include more than 700 metres of
secure corridors and moving walkways to reduce connection times, new high-speed baggage systems, upgrades to the original areas of the domestic terminal and runway safety improvements. firstname.lastname@example.org

Murder plot against Surrey man revealed Alleged target is now deceased by Dan Ferguson DETAILS OF a previously unreported plot to murder a South Surrey man show the alleged target died in a car crash shortly after police learned about the alleged conspiracy. The information, disclosed during an evidence hearing in Surrey Provincial Court last summer, shows the target of the alleged 2009 conspiracy was Steven Baker, a muscular shaven-headed 6’8” 276pound man also known as “Bam-Bam.” At the time, Baker was living on 53 Avenue south of Highway 10 in Panorama Ridge, a heavily wooded area featuring larger houses on spacious view lots. According to a transcript of the judge’s ruling Sept. 8, a Vancouver Police Department (VPD) investigation discovered Baker was being hunted by a member of the Red Scorpions gang, identified by a VPD officer in a sworn statement as Bobby Gill. The statement said the VPD learned from an informant that Gill and Baker “were angry with each other” and the Red Scorpion was trying to find Baker to kill him. Gill was reported by one police source to have complained that “… Bam-Bam really f----me over.” As part of a gangrelated weapons trafficking investigation that included a probe of two attempted murders in Vancouver, the VPD obtained a court order approving two telephone wiretaps in July and August of 2009. According to the transcript of the Surrey evidence hearing decision, a judge who reviewed the

Delta firm fined by Jeff Nagel A FOAM production plant in Delta was part of a
decade-long price-fixing scheme that has ended with the firms involved paying $12.5 million in fines. Valle Foam Industries, which also runs a plant in Brampton, Ontario, and Montreal affiliate Domfoam International, pleaded guilty to conspiring with competitors to fix the price of polyurethane foam products made at their three plants. The products are mainly used in carpet underlay, furniture and bedding. It was the first conviction under Canada’s amended conspiracy law, which was updated in 2010 to tighten the law regarding collaboration and cartels.

Developer presents rehab centre with cheque from collected ﬁnes
Morningstar proud of its safety record When those who work on a construction site do not comply with the regulations imposed by WorkSafe BC, they are given a fine. Morningstar Homes decided that the funds should go to a good cause, and donated the $14,660 they collected last year to the GF Strong Rehabilitation Centre in Vancouver. “Safety is not something we take lightly at Morningstar, and (we) have incorporated policies and procedures into our daily practices to make the workplace a safe environment for all,” says Morningstar President Robert Morse. “We seek to ensure the safest workplace possible and do everything within our power to educate and facilitate safe working practices.” GF Strong is B.C.’s largest and most specialized centre for rehab. It serves people
with work-related injuries as well as those stemming from sports, an accident, a stroke or a degenerative condition such as ALS or Parkinson’s Disease. “We are happy to report that we have never incurred a serious work-related accident in the history of Morningstar,” says VicePresident of Sales and Marketing Deborah Calahan. “It is our hope that through our diligence and commitment to a safe working environment that these infractions will continue to diminish ... we lead by example and hope this will encourage others to commit to the same high standard.” Examples of fined offences include not wearing a hard hat or proper safety gear. “We are proud of our record and we intend to keep it that way,” Calahan says.
‘Stylish single-level living’
Living the creekside life at Headwaters by Kerry Vital
Situated beside creeks and sheltering trees, Headwaters in the Morgan Creek area of Surrey is a private, secluded enclave that almost reaches out and hugs you. With the creek on two sides, nature has done a superb job of creating a earthly paradise. “Nature does the job better than I ever could,” says Treegroup VicePresident of Sales and Marketing Rod Sopko. With Treegroup’s 20 years of experience building homes, South Surrey showed them it had a lot of potential to be an amazing place to live. With 13 different floorplans available, buyers at Headwaters won’t have any trouble finding the perfect condominium home to suit their needs. “There is something there for everybody,” Sopko says. The homes range from 651 to 1,279 square feet, in a variety of one-, two- and threebedroom plans. Inside, the kitchens and bathrooms are spectacular. With recessed pot lighting and beautiful shaker-style cabinetry in your choice of Rich Expresso Stain or Fresh Antique White, both the kitchen and master bathroom are calm and soothing. The kitchen backsplash is chic and modern, in either Cool Grey or Cloud White. Complemented by the white-speckled Brazilian granite countertops and island in your gourmet kitchen, dark laminate wood flooring is a true focal point throughout the main living areas.
There is something here for everybody,” says Treegroup Vice-President of Sales and Marketing Rod Sopko.
big feature at Headwaters, the on-site business centre is a selling point as well. With an Internet lounge, private offices available for meetings, a screening room and a conference room, your every business need will be taken care of. There is also a concierge available. There is also a lifestyle centre that features a fireside lounge, gourmet kitchen, screening room and a flexible lounge space. The third jewel in the Headwaters amenities crown is the fitness centre, which includes a fully equipped gym and the use of a personal trainer. If your New Years resolution to
lose those last 10 pounds is falling by the wayside, you will no longer have any excuse at Headwaters. If you feel like venturing off the property for a bit of recreation, there are several golf courses and athletic parks in the area. Shopping, restaurants and several schools are also just a short walk or drive away. Located on-site at 15428 31st Avenue, the show suite and sales centre is open daily from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Homes start at $256,500. For more information, visit headwatersclub.ca or call 604-535-1451.
Each home includes a workspace area that Treegroup calls a Personal Hub. This space, with a built-in desk complemented by frosted glass accent windows and recessed lighting, can be used for anything you want, from a home office to a leisure nook perfect for curling up on a rainy day. Buyers are already pleased with their purchase. “The homes at Headwaters offer stylish single-level living as well as amazing on-site amenities that allow easy work-from-home flexibility and a host of leisure opportunities,” says Craig Harrold, who was so impressed that he e-mailed 25 of his friends to tell them about it, Sopko says. While the location is definitely a

Two wins and an overtime loss for Junior A hockey team by Nick Greenizan WITH TWO more wins and an
overtime loss last week, the Surrey Eagles continued to distance themselves from rival teams chasing them for second place in the BC Hockey Leagueâ€™s Coastal Conference. And if not for a handful of overtime losses â€“ four in the last 10 games â€“ they may have even found themselves perched atop the standings in first place. â€œWe just havenâ€™t been able to finish games off when itâ€™s fouron-four or three-on-three,â€? Eagles head coach Matt Erhart said of the teamâ€™s overtime troubles. â€œThatâ€™s probably the reason weâ€™re second, not first.â€? Nevertheless, the team is still riding a hot streak, picking up at least a point in 16 of the last 17 games. On Wednesday, they whipped the Langley Rivermen 8-2, Friday in Cowichan fell 3-2
in overtime to the Capitals and Saturday returned to the win column with a 3-1 road win over the Nanaimo Clippers. Surrey is five points shy of the first-place Powell River Kings, and two up on the third-place Capitals. But more importantly, their recent run has given them a 13-point cushion between themselves and fifth-place Nanaimo. Four teams from the conference make the playoffs. â€œOur first goal is to just make the playoffs, thatâ€™s why itâ€™s really important to get points, even if you lose,â€? Erhart said. â€œThe standings are just so tight.â€? On Wednesday, the Eagles were paced by rookie Sean McGovern, who had his first BCHL hat trick â€“ with all goals coming in the first period. Captain Tyler Morley and defenceman Steve Koshey had two goals apiece, and Brandon Morley added one to round out
the scoring. â€œThat was a really good win,â€? Erhart said. Friday, the Eagles clawed back twice from one-goal deficits before eventually falling to Cowichan in extra time. Michael Stenerson scored the teamâ€™s first goal, and Trevor Cameron added a second, which tied the game late in the third period to send it to overtime. No comeback was needed Saturday in Nanaimo, as the Eagles jumped out to a 2-0 lead on goals from McGovern and Brett Mulcahy, and Alex Hagen added an empty-netter in the third to seal the win. After playing the majority of their recent games on the road, the Eagles return to the nest this weekend with two games at South Surrey Arena. On Friday, they host Cowichan Valley and Saturday, will battle Langley. Both games start at 7 p.m.
Swimmer aims for Olympics Silver medal at World Cup nets place at qualifying meet SURREY NATIVE Richard Weinberger got a little closer to fulfilling his Olympic dream in the last few weeks, after back-to-back podium finishes in South America. Weinberger, a former member of the Pacific Sea Wolves Swim Club who now lives and trains in Victoria, assured himself a spot on the starting blocks at Olympic qualifiers later this spring after he snared a silver medal in a menâ€™s 10-km open-water World Cup swim meet in Viedma, Argentina. Weinberger, 21, finished the grueling marathon swim in one hour, 55 minutes and 29 seconds â€“ just one second behind world champion Spiros Gianniotis of Greece. â€œIt was a solid performance for Richard,â€? said his coach Ron Jacks in a release. â€œIt was a tough race as the swimmers went against the current. â€œRichard continued to solidify his position among the best openwater swimmers in the world.â€? The silver-medal showing was the second podium finish for Weinberger in as many weeks; at the end of January, he finished third at a World Cup race in Santos, Brazil â€“ a race that was also won by Gianniotis. Canadian swimmers are currently vying for the chance to make
the national squad that will swim at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. A spot at the Olympics would be the biggest achievement to
date for Weinberger, who has been swimming in open-water World Cup events since 2010. Heâ€™s already competed at a number of
prestigious international meets, including FINA World Open Water Swimming Championships and World Aquatic Championships.

‘Super Jim’ on Super Bowl Sunday was the perfect ﬁt for Jim Marino as the sun set on last Sunday’s card at Fraser Downs Racetrack & Casino. It didn’t quite get the attention of Eli Manning’s sterling performance with the New York Giants earlier in the day, but Marino wasn’t complaining. Winning half of the 12-race card Sunday was one of the most enjoyable driving performances a guy could ask for in front of friends, fans and family. Come to think of it, Marino had his six victories under wraps after 10 races, winning the ﬁrst, third, ﬁfth, sixth, eighth and 10th. Crazy it sounds, he might have made it to the winner’s circle seven times had Nobody Can not drifted out badly in the stretch to ﬁnish second by a length in the featured $12,500 top pace. That was Race 11, won by Clintons Escape with Keith Clark in the sulky. In capsule form, Marino’s Super Bowl Sunday went like this: Race 1: Panic At The Disco ($5.50); Race 3: Roxy Roller ($2.70); Race 5: Angelics Best ($3.40); Race 6: Sir Arthur ($7.20); Race 8: Cold and Heartless ($3.40) and Race 10: Cam on Mink ($4.30). The $15,000 Miss Onager Final on Friday night was a battle off the wings of the gate and in the end, it was experience that was the key to victory. Shes Rarin got the job done after a tough trip as veteran driver Tim Brown was parked the entire journey yet still managed to out pace her rivals to the wire. Shes Rarin was one of two 9-year-old mares competing against some younger talent. Owned and trained by Dan Ingram, who’s in his 80’s, Shes Rarin returned $18.00 while longshot Hi Ho Serenade (Brad Watt) ﬁnished second and Kg Tigress (Keith Clark) third. Later on the Friday card, a ﬁeld of 10 4-year-olds competed for a spot in the Final of the $25,000 Mr Vancouver that goes tomorrow night. Midnite in LA was an upset winner and ﬁnds himself in some tough company against the likes of Alberta challenger Hollywood Warrior and our own Gramrun Jake. The higher claiming series also kicks off this weekend with the Final of the Miss Valentine on Sunday. See you there! email@example.com 17755 60th Avenue Surrey BC

Filling in the blanks VocalEye audio describers give the blind a chance to ‘see’ the action during live stage performances by Boaz Joseph
“A ﬁreplace glows in the dark. Smoke billows from the chimney in the tower. Don Quixote sits still on his bed in the tower, behind bars. Father Perez enters, stokes the ﬁre with the bellows removes a book from beneath his arm. He reads it, and throws it into the ﬁre.” Rick Waines, describing the opening of a scene in Don Quixote
onica Nelson never went to live theatre before she began to lose her eyesight about 25 years ago. She has gone to movie theatres in recent years, where “it’s OK if your partner or friend whispers to you (what’s on the screen). It doesn’t really disturb people, because it’s loud.” But with live theatre, a silent audience is expected. Two years go, she received an invitation to The Miracle Worker, a play by Vancouver Playouse Theatre Company about deaf-blind author and political activist Helen Keller. The show included, in the one performance that Nelson went to during the show’s run, the first participation of KickStart’s (The Society for Disability Arts and Culture) VocalEye, an audio description service for blind theatre-goers. Wearing an earpiece linked to a transistor radio-sized closed-cirquit FM receiver, Nelson learned what was going on in between the dialogue. The experience led her to purchase tickets for several shows in Vancouver over the last two years. “It’s fabulous,” she said after a recent show. “They’re trained to describe things in more detail than your friend would have time to do.” Recently, the Surrey woman went to the first local VocalEye-serviced show at the Surrey Arts Centre, the Arts Club Theatre Company’s performance of Don Quixote. “We loved the idea, and were so impressed with the quality of the service that we jumped on board,” said Barb Wolfe, Surrey Arts Centre’s performing arts programmer. The audience included eight blind patrons and three guide dogs. In the 15 minutes prior to the show, they heard live audio descriptions about the play’s,

Using a masked microphone, Rick Waines of VocalEye quietly describes to blind patrons the action in a theatrical play at the Surrey Arts Centre. set, props, characters, costumes, masks, program notes (credits) and the plot synopsis. There’s no time for such descriptions during the show’s action, said Nelson, who added that knowing what the actors are wearing adds to the experience. During the show, the live play-by-play began as Rick Waines, standing in the back with his masked microphone, quietly described the setting and actions to his private audience. Waines, one of VocalEye’s four trained describers, said the key to providing the best experience – “When I’m feeling more poetic about it, I’m translating light into sound” – is to learn the script well and to speak concisely between they actors’ lines. Their choice of words is also important. They must do their best to help patrons laugh when the rest of the audience does (a tricky thing with physical comedy), and to not interpret for their audience. They might say, for example, that “John lowers his head and frowns” rather than “John is sad.” At the end of the Jan. 28 performance of Don Quixote, the VocalEye crew and Surrey Arts Centre staff took the patrons, for the first time in any show, on a Touch Tour. It allowed the blind to come on stage and feel the masks, costumes, armour and props – including Don Quixote’s hobby-horse, the

Lawyers Acting For and Against ICBC By Greg Smith There are times when persons injured in car accidents choose to hire a lawyer. They often have not hired a lawyer before and do not know what to do, what to expect or what to ask. They turn to Yellow Page ads, to the internet and to family and friends for help. They often end up choosing a lawyer who has an ofﬁce nearby and has experience in personal injury cases. Another factor to consider, however, is whether the lawyer or law ﬁrm has entered into an SAA agreement with ICBC. The SAA is a lengthy contract in which ICBC agrees to pay the law ﬁrm a block of billable hours at varying hourly rates, to act against persons injured in car accidents. In this contract, ICBC in its sole discretion may impose penalties or restrictions on the law ﬁrm and end the contract and take their business elsewhere if, “The Firm or any member of the legal team was or is engaged in any activity that was, is or may be contrary to ICBC’s strategic business or ﬁnancial direction or initiatives, or the interest of ICBC insureds.” If the terms if the SAA cause concer, before hiring a lawyer, ask if their law ﬁrm is an SAA signatory acting on ICBC’s behalf. For more information on the SAA agreement go to the Supreme Court of British Columbia website at www.courts.gov.bc.ca and search for Tepei v. ICBC 2007 BCSC 1694 and the Law Society of British Columbia for the quoted references at www.lawsociety.bc.ca/publications_forms/ bulletin/2006/06-08.

Leading the tour is the gallery’s Curator of Exhibitions and Collections, Jordan Strom, who will provide background on the distinct approaches and techniques of the artists whose works are featured in the exhibitions. The group exhibition Beyond Vague Terrain: The City and the Serial Image shows many sides to cities, especially Metro Vancouver’s. Through photography, painting, drawing, and video, the artists have used the strategy of multiple images to create compelling ways of representing experiences of the city. The first installment of Open Sound 2012 is Kristen Roos’ sound art installation titled Underground that uses found sounds and existing furnishings from the Surrey Arts Centre to create a resonant aural and tactile experience for visitors. The tour will examine how and why the particular artworks on display were chosen for the exhibitions, illustrate interesting stories about how the artworks relate to the artists’ previous work, and illuminate the many ideas explored in the exhibitions. Both regular tour participants and firsttime gallery visitors are encouraged to ask questions and share their responses to the artworks. What will those on the tour experience? Beyond Vague Terrain includes Sylvia Grace Borda’s interactive photographic database of every bus stop in Surrey; Roy Kiyooka’s street photographs that freeze moving figures and passing vehicles against storefront facades in late-1970s East Vancouver; and Helma Sawatzky’s recombined images of a new building site in South Surrey that speak to the rapid development of this part of the Lower Mainland. For Open Sound 2012, Roos has installed speakers and tactile transducers into two

Technology is a fast-growing sector of the B.C. economy. The industry is a magnet for highly educated professionals attracted to world-class high-tech clusters including the life-sciences, digital media and wireless, information and communications technology, ocean sciences and motion picture production. The average wage of $63,440 is more than 52% above the average for all jobs in British Columbia, which makes this sector even more attractive to job seekers. In 2009, the high-tech industry provided 84,000 jobs with a total salary bill that added up to $5.3 billion, up from $4 billion in 2007. The job growth will continue, with a projected 57,000 technology jobs opening by 2019, and an annual growth rate of 2.2%. British Columbia attracts global technology leaders, including Pixar, Disney, Boeing, MDA, Microsoft, Sierra Wireless, SAP, Dolby Canada, and Intel. These major technology companies look for a stable economy with a supply of experienced employees and a supportive government. British Columbia has both. It helps that the University of British Columbia is rated No. 1 in terms of technology licensing, an indicator of a high level of success and a culture that nurtures innovation. Who was it that said ‘necessity is the mother of invention’? The answer could be Alexander Fernandes, previously of Qimage. After his Burnaby plant was broken into, Fernandes invested in what was presented as the top of the line video surveillance equipment – which in reality didn’t produce enough clarity to identify the intruders the next time it happened. At that point, Fernandes realized he knew all about imaging and knew he could do much better. Fernandes sold his company, Qimage, for a very healthy $20 million and started a new company called Avigilon with just two employees. The objective of this new venture was to up the caliber of surveillance systems to the highest possible standard. Now seven years later Avigilon is considered an industry leader. This Metro Vancouver company has created the highest-resolution cameras in the industry, backed up by cutting-edge software, using the provincial government’s small business venture capital programs to raise nearly $7 million to help fund research and development. To say this company is a huge success is putting it mildly. Avigilon has more than 10,000 systems installed in over 80 countries around the world, including schools, sporting venues, car dealerships, malls, trains and airports. A direct beneﬁt is the 150 jobs created, with 75 of those located here in the Lower Mainland, plus a sales force scattered around the world selling Avigilon systems as fast as the Richmond plant can produce them. And they are not ﬁnished yet. The company is expanding fast, hiring an average of three or four people a month and attending university career fairs to attract top talent. The future is very bright for this company whose principal turned a problem into an idea and then into a very successful company. A healthy high-tech sector also attracts investors who are impressed by the industry’s performance. Revenues have more than tripled in the decade leading up to 2007, and were up another 4.4% by 2009, to $18.9 billion. Currently, investors receive a 30% refundable tax credit,
supporting up to $100 million in investment every year. The provincial government, seeing the role they can play in this fast growing sector, will increase the value of this program by $3 million, allowing more individuals known as ‘angel investors’ to put their own capital directly into eligible small business, and to offer strategic expertise. B.C. ﬁrms attracted more than 19% of Canada’s venture capital investments in 2010, with B.C. the top province in life sciences venture capital investments. High technology wears many hats. The BC Cancer Agency is a world leader in cancer research, and B.C. is North America’s third-largest centre for ﬁlm and TV production, averaging $1.2 billion in spending per year, 80% of which is foreign money. The global entertainment and media industry is expected to grow by ﬁve per cent a year to 2014, when it will hit $1.7 trillion. B.C. is well positioned to take advantage of this growth. The high-technology industry is not an island. This sector supports B.C.’s entire economy by helping other industries become more innovative, productive and globally competitive. Digital media and interactive gaming technologies are being used in education, agriculture, mining and health care. Other impacts are more global. With an estimated 5.3 billion mobile phone subscribers worldwide – India and China added 300 million subscribers in 2010 alone – the demand for digital, wireless and screen-based entertainment is immense. These two countries, India and China, are undergoing mass movements to urbanization, which also gives B.C. opportunities to offer them clean, efﬁcient energy, waste reduction and health-care solutions. B.C. is perfectly aligned to supply a healthy portion of this demand in the coming years. Airplane sales around the world are expected to reach $US3.6 trillion over the next 20 years to replace aging planes and expand ﬂeets, providing opportunities for our advanced manufacturing sector. Plus, as a climate change leader, we are at the forefront of renewable energy technology development. Finding new markets for our solar, wind, biomass and other technologies can help turn B.C. into a cleantech powerhouse. As Canada’s Paciﬁc Gateway, B.C. is strategically located to reach growing global markets. In addition, B.C. is close to technology and entertainment hubs in Los Angeles, Silicon Valley and Seattle. Under the BC Jobs Plan, the provincial government will work with the federal government to meet our workforce needs and expedite the immigration process for researchers and scientists in other parts of the world who want to bring their expertise to British Columbia. B.C.’s fast-tracked immigration process through the Provincial Nominee Program encourages ﬁrms to locate in B.C. so they can hire experienced business immigrants. The B.C. government’s focus on this sector, identiﬁed as one of the eight key sectors with the greatest opportunity to bring new dollars into our economy from our most important trading partners, helps nurture an industry that has immense potential to accelerate growth throughout the province.

teams up with songwriter Rae Spoon for a multi-media evening on the Surrey stage tomorrow (Friday) night. In this unique performance, Coyote paints a picture of one family’s history against a backdrop of images of the Yukon in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.
Together with musician Rae Spoon, the artists present a multimedia show that unthaws 60 years of stories frozen into the permafrost, with all the warmth and familiarity that has made Coyote’s work so appealing to audiences. Coyote, an award-winning author, believes in the transformative power of storytelling and relays oral histories that inspire us to hope for a better future by reminding us of
the importance of our families and where we come from. Spoon is a transgendered indie electronic musician who has toured extensively over the past ten years in Canada and abroad.

ost British Columbians take breathing for granted, but not Surrey resident Richard Mishra nor the 500 other British Columbians taking part in the BC Lung Association’s 11th-annual Stairclimb for Clean Air fundraiser. On Feb. 26, Mishra and his teammates will join hundreds to face one of B.C.’s tallest staircases, the 48 flights of the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre
Hotel, in support of lung health. People at all fitness levels come out for the annual event, says BC Lung Association event organizer Marissa McFadyen. “There’s zero intimidation factor. We’re simply all in it to give back, honour those affected by lung disease and have a little fun at the same time.” To participate, each stair climber
must commit to fundraising a minimum of $125, and in return receives an event T-shirt, a continental breakfast and the chance to win prizes including a trip for two to Paris. All proceeds fund vital lung health and air quality research, programs and initiatives. To register, visit www.stairclimb.ca or contact the BC Lung Association at 604-731-LUNG (5864).

Reach has recently partnered with The Kinsmen Club and launched $4-million capital campaign to build a new, community-based child development centre in Ladner. The new centre will be bigger and more accessible than the current Reach centre in east Ladner, enabling more children, youth and families to benefit from programs and services. Three quarters of the event proceeds went towards ICC (with a three-to-one match from the Canadian international Development Agency), and one quarter towards Reach’s new building project.

help but hum Blue Skies as he prepares to leave Northwood United Church for a meeting. He’s just laid out his plans for the next several weeks: Jazz music for the soul. Starting Feb. 12, musicians will entertain worshippers and music aficionados during jazz vespers – vesper being a late afternoon or early evening prayer – at 4 p.m. on the second and fourth Sunday of each month until the end of April. The six-session “experiment,” as Sparks calls it, is titled Jazz Vespers in the Valley: Music for the Soul. “We’re here to be a place for people to come to worship and celebrate... to connect with their soul. And I think jazz vespers do that,” he says. The concept originated in New York City in 1965. The late Rev. John Garcia Gensel, a minister connected with the jazz scene, started an evening service for musicians who couldn’t make it for Sunday morning services after playing late Saturday night engagements. “He watched how jazz musicians listen with an open heart and play what the spirit brings them,” explains Sparks. “He thought, this and worship go together.” The idea spread to other U.S. churches, and has made it as far as Vancouver, where jazz vespers have taken place for years at St. Andrew’s-Wesley United Church on Burrard and Nelson Streets. The idea to bring it to the Fleetwood church was suggested by Gerry
named “pick of the week” by the L.A. Times. “She is a virtuoso, one of Canada’s finest vocal jazz artists,” says an enthusiastic Sparks. “I’ve very excited about having her here and I hope that the community responds.”
