Surrey unleashes dog park plan 14 new off-leash canine spaces coming as city’s pooch population expected to grow to 154,000 by Kevin Diakiw ESTHER KWAN packed her seven-month old Korean Jindo, JJ, into her car Friday and motored down to Freedom Park, a small, off-leash area in Fleetwood. When she arrived, there were five other people with dogs – a small group, as that number sometimes reaches 20. For Kwan, the park is a necessity. Walking JJ on a leash simply wouldn’t do the trick. “He needs his exercise,” she says. JJ jumps into the excited cluster of canines, which as a group begin to growl, leap and tumble over each other. The play is an important part of socialization, Esther Kwan and it’s a crucial aspect in raising stable and nonaggressive dogs. This type of interaction can’t occur while a pooch is leashed and walking on pavement. The demand for off-leash dog parks, by both man and his best friend, is growing. According to figures from a recent study commissioned by the city, Surrey is home to more than 127,000 dogs, exceeding the human populations of most cities in the region. More than one in four Surrey residents (27 per cent) own a dog.

Jail and rehab for teen who killed Surrey dad Sam McGowan, 42, was stabbed in the chest in 2009 by Sheila Reynolds


Michelle Proulx and her daughter Macky Proulx speak outside the New Westminster courthouse on Friday.

THE TEEN who stabbed Surrey dad Sam McGowan in the chest, killing him in the summer of 2009, has been ordered to serve a three-year intensive rehabilitation and custody sentence.

He will spend six months of those three years in a youth detention centre, with the remainder of the sentence spent in a rehabilitation and counselling program – the terms of which have yet to be determined. The 17-year-old, who has already

served one month of his prison term and who cannot be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, was convicted of manslaughter last June and was sentenced in New Westminster Supreme Court Friday morning (Jan. 27).

Teenager: ‘disappointed’ with sentence From page 1 He was just 15 years old in August 2009 when he and a buddy committed two robberies, stealing cellphones from other teens – one of whom was McGowan’s son. McGowan, 42, gave chase, eventually finding the youth hiding behind a tent trailer in the yard of a neighbourhood home. McGowan yelled and the teen ran. He then turned around, facing the victim with a knife, and plunged it into McGowan’s chest, killing him. The youth was initially charged with second-degree murder, but was found guilty of the lesser charge of manslaughter by a jury. The defence argued the young man feared for his life. He also pleaded guilty to two robbery charges during the trial. In December, the teen apologized in court, saying “I am disgusted with the way I behaved... it’s something I’m going to regret for the rest of my life.” His lawyer, David Tarnow, said Friday his client, who has no prior criminal record, was “very disappointed” with the sentence because he felt he’d been doing well since his arrest. In court, Justice Laura Gerow acknowledged the sentence was in no way a measure of the value of the victim’s life. “There is nothing this court can do to fix the pain... that Mr. McGowan’s family has suffered. “No sentence will ever restore him to you.” McGowan’s family and friends cried and hugged one another following the sentencing. They said while the Sam McGowan accused did not receive a lot of jail time, six months is more than they expected, and they were pleased to see him led from the courthouse in handcuffs. McGowan’s girlfriend Michelle Proulx said she feels for other victims of crime she sees in the news. “Knowing what we’ve already gone through and knowing that they’re going to be going through this now... “The case is over now but it’s never going to be over... because seeing what’s been going on is a constant reminder,” she said of recent violent crimes. Madison, Proulx’s 11-year-old daughter, said McGowan was like a father to her. “Sometimes I wonder what would’ve happened if Sam wasn’t killed. Would my mom and him be married like they had planned?” Proulx’s older daughter Macky said her mom and McGowan had a “puppy love” type of relationship. “He had the power to make everyone happy,” said Macky. “He tried to make the best of the worst situations.”

Here’s the scoop on dog waste in Surrey Failure to pick up after pets not netting many fines by Kevin Diakiw WHEN IT comes to poop, Sur-

rey’s 127,000 pups are extremely productive. In fact, according to recent figures, they generate 48 tons (43,354 kilograms, or 95,580 pounds) of excrement every day. That’s the equivalent weight of more than 20 pick-up trucks.

A Mustel Group market research study has found there are 127,440 dogs in the city. With the average dog generating less than half-a-kilogram (three-quarters of a pound) of waste every day (according to a recent U.S. Environmental Protection Agency report), the sheer volume of dog poop becomes a heaping waste disposal issue. Leaving it in place is not an option as it poses a human health hazard, not

to mention the nuisance. As such, the fine in Surrey for failing to “scoop” after a dog is $200. But either Surrey dog owners are extremely good about picking up poop, or connecting the evidence to the culprit is difficult, because Surrey doesn’t hand out many tickets for dumping dogs and their derelict owners.

James, the kid’s father, told CTV News he was shocked to see his child had a broken nose as well as puncture wounds and deep gashes on his face. “My kid’s face was mutilated to the point where I could not recognize my child,” he said, adding the family is considering a lawsuit. The boy is believed to be one of two suspects in break-in at a gas station at 14935 108 Ave. on Saturday morning. The police dog services initiated a pursuit and one of the boys was taken down by one of the dogs.

The other suspect managed to get away. The gas station reported that 40 energy drinks were stolen during the break in. Sgt. Peter Thiessen told The Leader there will be a full review conducted by the Lower Mainland District RCMP of the actions by the dog, its handler and the suspect. He said the injuries sustained are not typical, unless the suspect

somehow further aggravated the dog. “Our police service dogs are trained to bite and hold,” Thiessen said. “Now that can be exacerbated when you have an individual acting aggressively, fleeing, or any number of factors that could escalate that to another level. “The review will indicate exactly what transpired that resulted in the injuries... and why this dog was apprehend-

ing this suspect in the manner that it was,” Thiessen said. The 16-year-old has been released, but police are recommending charges in relation to the break-in. The review comes only days after a Vancouver man launched a lawsuit against the Vancouver Police Department after his leg was allegedly torn badly by a police dog earlier this month. According to the Pivot Legal Society, dog bites comprise half the injuries reported by municipal police in British Columbia during arrests.

having dogs at large in Surrey, and six dogs were found with no tag. Failing to fetch feces didn’t even make the top 10 list.

David Justice, who was walks his dog Sunny every day at Freedom Park in Fleetwood, says the majority of dog

poop is being left on the ground by owners. In the back trails at Freedom Park, Justice says there’s a “steaming heap” every few feet. “It’s just disgusting,” he says. “They should pickup the goddamn stuff.” What happens to the rest of it? City staff acknowledge that it ends up in a variety of places – some of it is left where it lands, some is flushed down the toilet, and some is put into garbage cans and eventually taken to the landfill. The ideal situation, staff say, is to flush dog poop down the toilet, where it would undergo the same treatment as human waste. It’s understood many people won’t go to that length to dispose of the waste, so city staff ask that people put it in a biodegradable bag, then place that bag within the household garbage bag. Manager of Parks Owen Croy said the city will soon be exploring ways to compost canine waste. “We’re looking at best practices from other communities, how to use biodegradable bags (and)... have a composting program that works,” Croy said. Once the material is composted, it could be used to fertilize plants throughout Surrey parks. “We have almost 6,500 acres of parkland and many of those areas could used some additional organic materials, so we’ll get going on that in a bigger way in the coming year,” Croy said.

Sex assault prompts police warning A WEEKEND sex assault

has prompted police to warn women in Surrey to be extra vigilant. A woman was leaving her place of work at Central City Shopping Centre Friday at about 5:30 p.m. when she was grabbed from behind. A man covered her mouth, shoved her into a car and sexually assaulted her. She managed to break free and screamed, causing the attacker to run away. The attacker is described as a Caucasian in his mid- to late20s. He is clean shaven

and is about 5’8” with an average build. He was wearing blue jeans, running shoes and a dark hoodie with a ‘Canada’ logo on the back. Police say it was an isolated incident and the woman did not need medical attention. Surrey Mounties are reminding members of the public to be vigilant of their surroundings and potential vulnerability when alone. Anyone with information is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime

Stoppers at 1-800-2228477.

Woman clinging to life after fire A woman is in grave condition after suffering serious injuries as a result of a fire on the weekend. At 10 p.m. Sunday, fire crews were called to a blaze in the 10500 block of Arbutus Wynd in Fraser Heights. Two people were home at the time. A 61-year-old man had been trying to put the fire out with a garden

hose, assuming his wife had made it outside okay. Witnesses believe the 59-year-old woman may have gone back into the house for her three cats, but got trapped in the blaze. The woman was rescued from the home, given CPR, and was taken to hospital. Her condition is described as grave. The cats did not survive the inferno. The fire is believed to have started in the downstairs or the living room of the home. Police do not believe the fire was suspicious.

Tribute held for Maple Batalia Central City Model Search donates $2,000 to bursary in slain teen’s name by Kevin Diakiw


A tribute was held Saturday for murdered Surrey teen Maple Batalia at the Central City Model Search. The 19-year-old was a finalist in the competition.

Homicide Investigation Team has seized a white 2011 Dodge Charger that was seen leaving the scene of the murder, and made another appeal for witnesses earlier this month. Several witnesses seen on a surveillance video at the crime scene have been interviewed, but there have been no arrests. - with files from CTV News

A TRIBUTE was held

on the weekend for a girl slain in a North Surrey parkade last September. Maple Batalia, 19, was gunned down in a parking area near Simon Fraser University last fall. She had been shortlisted for the Central City Model Search competition, which was postponed after her death. The finals for the competition were held Saturday, and began with a touching tribute to Maple. The first 20 minutes of the competition included a moment of silence and a $2,000 donation to a bursary in Maple Batalia’s name. Her family attended Saturday’s event and was presented with the donation. “It’s just letting people know she has a voice beyond the grave, beyond the horrible atrocity that occurred, she is still among us,” her sister Roseleen Batalia told CTV BC Saturday. “There’s so many things we can do, but it won’t really bring Maple back, but having the positivity and the support means a lot,” she said.

Holy you-knowwhat, that’s a lot of dog poop!


ext time you see a careless dog owner neglect to pick up after their pet once it has done its business, if you really want to get angry, do the math. It’s estimated the 127,440 canines in Surrey unload a staggering 48 tonnes of poop each day. Yes, you read that right. Forty-eight tonnes a day. That’s the equivalent weight of more than 20 pick-up trucks. Now, not all of the waste is left to be stepped on by unwitting people in parks, on boulevards or along sidewalks. Many pooch owners are responsible and dutifully scoop their puppy’s poop. But then what? Where to dump the doggie-do? City staff say the ideal situation is to flush the feces down the toilet, where it would undergo the same treatment as human waste. However, most people don’t put in the extra effort to properly dispose of dog poop, so much of it ends up tossed in the household garbage bag, and subsequently, the landfill. What a load of crap. Literally. (Especially when convenient, flushable doggie poop bags exist). Manager of Parks Owen Croy said Surrey will soon be exploring ways to collect and compost canine waste, using the byproduct to fertilize plants throughout the city. It’s a plan that can’t be put in place soon enough. With the dog population expected to climb to 154,000 over the next nine years, we need better dog poop management measures at our disposal.

This crucial management tool was abruptly taken back in 2002 by the B.C. Liberal government’s huge majority. Too abruptly, according to a B.C. Supreme Court judge last year.

In the B.C. Teachers’ Federation case, the judge gave the provincial government a year to consult and come up with a replacement to the offending legislation, which will then cease to be in effect. That year is running out, with no more progress being made than the talks to replace the BCTF’s expired union contract. The pattern of all this is drearily familiar.

reduce class sizes and increase special needs support staff. Teachers are still being compensated under the final terms of a contract that provided 16 per cent in wage increases over five years, in the midst of a harsh recession. And here’s a fun math fact. With percentage wage increases, three plus six plus six doesn’t equal 15. It’s closer to 16, because later raises are calculated on a larger base. So on wages alone, the BCTF wants the same in three years that it just got in five, at a time when private sector unions take layoffs and wage cuts, and the province is billions in the red. The president of the Langley Teachers’ Association went on CKNW radio and succinctly summed up the BCTF’s position. Raise income taxes across the board. Gordon Campbell cut everyone’s taxes by 25 per cent in 2001, and cut education to pay for it. They’re still fighting the 2005 election.

New energy source needed to meet demand THE CENTERPIECE of BC Hydro planning for many years has been energy conservation. It’s a very sensible objective considering the high cost of building new power plants. Just take a look at the estimated $7.9 billion capital cost to build the Site C Dam. Obviously, if massive capital expenditures can be avoided by reducing energy use it serves to keep electricity costs down for BC Hydro’s customers. However, energy conservation has its limits, otherwise Site C would not be on the table. Eventually it becomes necessary to build new power

plants as the population and overall energy use increase. BC Hydro has, of course, wisely taken steps to meet a portion of BC’s energy needs from private sector energy suppliers, and typically at a cost that is less than what BC Hydro could have achieved itself by building and maintaining its own power plants. And by acquiring energy from private sector suppliers, BC Hydro assumes none of the risk involved in building new power plants. The risk remains with the suppliers, which frees BC Hydro

to pick and choose from among the most reliable suppliers and acquire electricity at the best rate. So although I am all for energy conservation, I also believe that we need to acquire new energy supplies to meet growing energy needs. If the private sector can supply some of the new energy we need cost-effectively, and assume the financial risks, then I am all for that, too. All that should really matter is whether the best value is being achieved by BC Hydro for its customers. Michael McBratney Pitt Meadows

The choices it have given us are Prince Charles Elementary (12405 100 Ave.) or Royal Heights Elementary (11665 97 Ave.). Its reasoning behind the move is that we have had declining enrolment for a number of years. While this is true, it is somewhat troubling to know that a large part of the low enrolment has to do with the troubles we have had regarding administration over the last few years. This has led to a lot of confusion and misunderstanding about the Discovery philosophy and as a result we have lost many of students to other schools. Discovery’s PAC of last year and this year, as well as a group of committed parents, have been hard at work trying to develop new ways to reach out to our surrounding community and increase awareness of our school, hopefully drawing more attention and increasing enrolment. Two of these initiatives rely on Discovery remaining onsite: a community garden, and a lovely mural to be painted in the cul-desac adjacent to the east side of the school grounds. The board of trustees is going to push for the idea that it is not closing our school, per se, but simply moving the program. However, many of our parents feel that a move of the program into another larger school – with yet another new administrative team that may or may not be understanding of our program’s philosophy and the potential loss of dedicated Discov-

This would likely spell the end of the Discovery program no matter what. As a parent of Discovery school and a member of the community surrounding the site, I encourage others who see the value in alternative education and keeping Discovery in its current location and to take action in any way they see fit and to voice their concern.

Program threatened by relocation WE ARE PARENTS of a girl who is

currently in Discovery School in

Grade 7. We understand there is a possibility the choice program may be moved to another school in Surrey and we are very concerned about how this will affect the future of the program. Although this move will not specifically affect us next year, we are concerned about how the program will continue. The philosophy of the school has helped our daughter to become excited about learning. We moved her to Discovery during her Grade 5 year from a school she had attended since kindergarten. She had begun to despise going to school and had even started to refuse to go. We were concerned that there were no options out there to help us keep our daughter in school. With a bit of research, we found the Discovery School Choice

Program and moved her there. Our daughter began to thrive instantly. We are so grateful that the Surrey School District had such an amazing program because we understand that not every school district has a program like this to offer. We are encouraged to know that the district is dedicated to supporting the Discovery program, no matter what location it is at. We are, however, very concerned that a move to another location, within a mainstream school, will threaten how the program is administered. We implore the Surrey School District to allow the students and parents to have an extension on our time in our current location so that we have a chance to bring awareness to our school and bring enrolment up to an acceptable level.

Rabbit cull will be costly THE IRE EXPRESSED by readers to

the practical and cost effective solution proposed to rid Delta of the once domestic, now feral, rabbits in Ladner was predictable and expected. If I understand it correctly, irresponsible owners have dumped their unwanted pets, leaving Delta with a problem and an estimated $60,000 council approved solution to capture, sterilize and re-release the estimated 500 rabbits. These rabbits are not part of the native, natural wildlife of the area. Rather than continue with a costly $120 per rabbit annual roundup, sterilization and release program, it was proposed to simply “cull the critters” and control both the ongoing population and subsequent damage done to public property for a minimal cost of $5 per rabbit. One naive reader indicated that the rabbits would be relocated. Where to? Shelters do not have the room. Perhaps Burns Bog where they would now form a “bunny buffet” for owls, eagles and coyotes. If they were released to an area like the Bog, why sterilize as the rabbits and their offspring would simply become part of the “natural” food chain. I suppose the good news might be that coyotes would no longer hunt for cats and small dogs in the local subdivisions. A suggestion was made to contribute the $5 per rabbit fee to local food banks. Given the $60,000 budget and the proposed $2,500 solution, Delta could donate some $57,250 to local food banks, this would really make a difference. No one wants to see a cute furry bunny put down and it would be both wonderful and completely unrealistic to expect all the sterilized bunnies to be adopted. There are a number of solutions, some acceptable, some not so much. Any solution will be required for the foreseeable future as this issue will not go away. Delta council has taken one approach that unfortunately will become an expensive annual line item on all future budgets. Larry Miller Delta

Parking regulation ignored

I WENT TO the Newton Library yesterday afternoon

and found the parking lot very crowded. I did get a spot right near the road and walked to the door. As I passed the four handicapped spaces, a gentleman pulled in and parked a large truck. As I reached him I mentioned the fact that he had not displayed his handicapped tag – knowing full well he didn’t own one. His snappish retort was that he didn’t need one to just drop books off. As he put his books into the outdoor slot, I asked if he was the one who wrote the bylaws. I didn’t

catch his mumble or his eye as his head was down. While he was not visibly handicapped, his arrogant attitude lacked empathy for those less-fortunate who need those parking spaces. How I wish there was a number we could call to report the licence plates of those who think they are above the rules, and that easy access to the library was their right, even if the parking space was not legally theirs.

by Kevin Diakiw A MASKED man, believed to be from

Surrey, allegedly robbed a Kelowna pawn shop and then opened fire at police officers during his getaway. Surveillance cameras caught images of what police believe is Surrey’s Devan Markcus Wong, 19, robbing Premier Jewelry and Loan on Dec. 6 last year. Cameras mounted to the dash of a police car showed that RCMP were shot at when they arrived. A second later, the cruiser camera shows a police dog and handler pursuing the suspect. The suspect scaled a three-meter fence before the dog caught up with him. He

escaped down an alley. The suspect is believed to have carjacked a vehicle, forcing the occupant to drive him to a West Kelowna trailer park, where he switched vehicles. Wong, who also goes by Markcus MIX, is considered armed and dangerous and the public is advised not to approach him. He is believed to be in the Lower Mainland, quite possibly in Surrey. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call police immediately or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222TIPS if they wish to remain anonymous. – with files from Kathy Michaels, Kelowna Capital News

Judge orders jail for border smuggler Man insists he didn’t know drugs were in truck by Dan Ferguson A MAN who claims he didn’t know about the cocaine discovered in his semi-tractor-trailer truck at the Pacific Highway border crossing has lost his bid to stay out of jail until a court challenge of his conviction has been ruled on. Gurvinder Singh Dhesi was ordered to begin serving his nineyear prison sentence by the B.C. Court of Appeal, which will hear his challenge in April. During his trial in Surrey Provincial Court, the 29-year-old Dhesi argued that he was what is known as a “blind courier” – meaning someone else put the drugs in the truck without his knowledge in July of 2009. There was evidence that someone drilled out a rivet and replaced it with a bolt to allow the truck trailer to be opened without breaking a cus-

toms inspection seal that would normally allow the vehicle to cross the border without a second going-over. But when a customs officer noticed the bolt on the truck didn’t look right, he ordered another inspection, during which six brown cardboard boxes packed with cocaine worth about $2.4 million were found inside the trailer. Investigators also uncovered a receipt in the truck for a cordless drill and two drill bits that were bought at a U.S. Walmart a few days before the smuggling attempt. And, they found a Costco bag with the exact same type of bolt

used to replace the rivet. A test carried out for the trial showed that the drill and bolt could be used to remove the rivet, open the trailer without disturbing the seal, then replace the rivet with the bolt to conceal evidence of tampering. In finding Dhesi guilty of one count of importing a controlled substance and one count of possession for the purpose of trafficking, Surrey Provincial Court Judge Reginald Harris said it was “very unlikely” that someone else put the drugs in the trailer. “The only rational conclusion is that the accused knowingly transported the cocaine into Canada,” he found.

Dhesi is appealing his conviction and sentence, saying there was not enough evidence to support his conviction and the trial judge went too far in drawing the conclusions he did. On Jan. 10, a B.C. Court of Appeal justice rejected Dhesi’s application to remain free on bail until his appeal has been decided, saying that the serious nature of the charges require his incarceration. The judge said the appeal should be heard quickly, and took the unusual step of suggesting specific dates were available in April to the lawyers for the Crown and defence.

by Kevin Diakiw A MAN has been arrested in relation to a shooting this month over what police believe was a dispute over alcohol. Robert Phillips is facing charges for a Jan. 3 shooting in the 12400 block of 53 Avenue. The 48-year-old who was shot is expected to make a full recovery. On Jan. 27, Surrey RCMP learned that Phillips, 42, was staying at a home in the 12600 block of Old Yale Road. Officers surrounded the home, and as they approached, they saw Phillips take off on a bicycle. After a short pursuit, he was arrested. He is facing several charges including discharging a firearm with intent, aggravated assault, possession of a loaded, restricted firearm, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purposes, carrying a concealed weapon and unauthorized possession of a firearm.

Distracted driving deaths down, fines up 19 fewer fatalities in Lower Mainland in 2011 by Jeff Nagel A TICKETING blitz against distracted drivers in the Lower Mainland is being credited for a steep drop in associated car crash fatalities not seen elsewhere in B.C. Twenty-six motor vehicle deaths in 2011 were blamed on driver distraction in the Lower Mainland, down 42 per cent from 45 in 2010, the year B.C. banned the handheld use of cellphones and other devices. Other regions of B.C. where police weren’t as aggressive actually saw their fatalities from distracted driving hold steady or worsen, according to RCMP Supt. Norm Gaumont, the head of traffic services in the Lower Mainland. “We told all our traffic units this was a top priority,” he said, adding three separate ticket

campaigns were conducted last year. As a result, Greater Vancouver-area RCMP issued well over 20,000 tickets (with some still to be tabulated), Gaumont said, up from about 14,000 in 2010. “We’re going to hit it hard again in February,” he said. While Gaumont believes drivers are improving their behaviour, he said there’s a long way to go. “There’s still way too many people driving and looking at their cellphones and texting.” Karen Bowman, creator of the antidistracted driving website dropitanddrive. com, said she doesn’t believe the problem is improving. “What we’re seeing out there on the road is an awful lot of people using their cellphones on

The road to good

a regular, repeated basis,” she said. “I see more people than I can count every single time I leave my home.” Bowman, whose eight-year-old daughter was injured by a distracted driver, said the legislation is a good step but does not seem to be enough to change behaviour. One idea raised recently by a retired firefighter is that police immediately confiscate the handheld device, which would be impounded for some period of time. “I like that idea,” Bowman said, but said she doubts it would happen. The provincial government released B.C.wide statistics estimating a 12 per cent drop in distracted driving fatalities for the first 18 months of the new law (up to July 2011), compared to the same period in the previous two years. The fatalities count all sources of driver distraction, not just the banned activities.

But officials say it’s often difficult to tell for certain when distraction from cellphones or other gadgets have led to a crash. The statistics are therefore thought to under-report those crashes because police only report “communications/video equipment” as a definite contributing factor in a very small number of cases. Province-wide, more than 46,000 B.C. drivers got $167 tickets for illegal use of a hand-held electronic device in the 18 months to July 31, 2011, and another 1,372 tickets were handed out for drivers who texted or emailed while driving. B.C. Solicitor General Shirley Bond said a 34-per-cent jump in tickets issued in 2011 shows many drivers remain determined to talk or text behind the wheel. “Far too many people are not getting the message,” Bond said.

A financial planner will sound out a client just like a doctor does with a patient. Your financial situation will be assessed, and then the diagnosis and treatment will follow. A planner will ask you what you want to look like in ten years, in terms of investment risk: round, thin, all in proportion? Once you have discussed the level of financial independence you are aiming for, along with your retirement objectives and your children’s education plans, a financial planner will note and highlight any obstacles. These might include an insufficient projected income, indebtedness, and unsuitable income tax bracket.

‘‘I LOVED THE PROGRAM SO MUCH, I BOUGHT INTO THE COMPANY’’ Jamie Swan bought the U Weight Loss Clinic of Surrey in June 2010 and has never looked back. It’s her own personal struggle with weight that makes Jamie the ideal candidate to own a weight loss clinic. She has all the empathy in the world for her clients and enough determination and belief in the program, to support them in their quest to reach their own personal health and weight loss goals. During her many years of university study at home and abroad, Jamie had put her own health on the backburner and although she tried a few programs and crash diets, the weight loss was always temporary. When her self-esteem was at its lowest, she discovered the U Weight Loss Program and was encouraged by how quickly the weight came off. Best of all, she found the meals so tasty that she started to believe this could be the start of a whole new lifestyle change. She got a job coaching at the clinic and discovered she loved helping others to achieve their dreams. “It was about so much more than weight loss. Men and women were gaining back their self-confidence, achieving dreams they never thought possible and significantly altering the quality of their personal relationships.” It didn’t take long before Jamie knew that helping others achieve their hopes

and dreams was the career path for her, so she jumped at the opportunity to purchase U Weight Loss Clinic of Surrey. It has been over 3 years now since she lost the weight and she has succeeded at maintaining it!! “I most enjoy coaching the clients who are as sceptical as I was – it’s so rewarding. It’s the clients that inspire me every day to be the best I can… I think we all inspire each other.” U Weight Loss is a doctorformulated program that offers customized Lifestyle programs aimed at helping clients to identify the underlying causes of weight gain, develop wholesome nutritional practices and get active. Behaviour modification techniques are used to make lasting changes. This holistic approach to health and wellness, focuses on changes that can be sustained. “We examine ways of overcoming the unique hurdles each client faces and provide the support so they never feel alone in their journey”.

BC Games have inspired thousands of athletes 2012 Winter Games in Vernon Feb. 23-26 by Kerry Vital WITH THE 2012 BC Winter Games set to start in Vernon next month, spirit is building in every community across British Columbia. The brainchild of Premier W.R. Bennett, the Games began in 1978 in Penticton. Since then, 38 communities across the province have hosted the Games, some of them more than once. More than 200,000 people have volunteered and more than 150,000 athletes have competed since it began. “One of the most important benefits of hosting a BC Games is how it brings a community together,” says Henry Pejril, president of the 2006 BC Summer Games in Kamloops. “There aren’t many opportunities like a Games that can capture the full cross-section of a community. The feeling of pride and accomplish-

ment lasts in a host city for many years to come.” Many well-known athletes had their start at the BC Games, including Tour de France cyclist Ryder Hesjedal and 2010 Olympic women’s snowboarding cross gold medallist Maelle Ricker, who are among the alumni who say their dreams of international competition began at the BC Games. “My Olympic success can be traced to the provincial Games in my native Manitoba and I see the BC Winter Games providing the same opportunity for young athletes today,” says BC Games Society chair and 1976 Olympic speedskating silver medalist, Cathy Priestner Allinger. “The BC Winter Games provide rising stars an opportunity to benefit from excellent coaching, while testing their skills against B.C.’s best. Our next genera-

tion of Canada Games athletes and Olympians are getting ready for the 2012 BC Winter Games.” The Games take place in Greater Vernon and Armstrong Feb. 23-26. Participants are generally under the age of 18 (depending on the sport), and have the potential to move beyond local and regional competition to the national stage and beyond. “The BC Games are an important stepping stone towards the Canada Games and ultimately the Olympic Games,” says Kelly Stefanyshyn, a former Olympic swimmer and BC Games Society board member. “Learning to (compete) for a team beyond just your sport and focus while so many events are occurring is imperative to an athlete’s success.” See CITY OF SURREY Page 16

Pedestrian killed in Newton

A MAN was hit and killed by a vehicle on King George Boule-

vard in Newton Wednesday night. The 49-year-old man was crossing the street at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 25 in the 6500 block of King George Boulevard when a northbound grey Plymouth Neon struck him. Police say drugs, alcohol or speed are not considered to be factors in the accident. There was no crosswalk at the location, and police say the man was inexplicably standing in the lane of traffic. Charges against the driver are not anticipated at this time.

According to the official website, the aim of the Games is “to provide an opportunity for the development of athletes, coaches, and officials in preparation for higher levels of competition in a multi-sport event which promotes interest and participation in sport and sporting activities, individual achievement, and community development.” Tsawwassen’s Moira Gookstetter, BC Games Society Board Member and Gymnastics BC CEO, knows the Games’ mandate works. “As a past participant of the BC Summer Games and now sport administrator, I have seen firsthand how the BC Games ignite a spirit of competition and a passion for camaraderie in our young and developing high performance athletes,” says Gookstetter. “As many athletes first multi-sport games experience, the BC Games offers a true model of other national and international games, allowing our athletes to gain valuable competitive and social experience, as

they emerge and progress onto the high performance stage.” Brian Carruthers, President of the Williams Lake 2002 BC Winter Games, is proud of the achievements of B.C. athletes. “Sport builds character in individuals and brings people together in a positive environment, whether as competitors, spectators or organizers,” he says. The Winter Games feature 15 sports, including curling, figure skating, skiing and women’s hockey. It is expected that more than1,500 athletes and over 300 coaches will participate in the Games in February. “I believe in the BC Games as it provides an opportunity to share the spirit with other British Columbians while celebrating your community in the most fantastic and rewarding way,” says Diana Johnstone, Operations Manager for the 2002 BC Summer Games in Nanaimo. “I can’t wait until 2014 when Nanaimo will once again be privileged to host this amazing event.” Surrey will host the 2012 BC Summer Games in July.

Eagles winless at home Junior A hockey teams loses in overtime, plays to a tie by Rick Kupchuk PLAYING AGAINST a pair of struggling hockey teams on home ice at the South Surrey Arena, the Surrey Eagles couldn’t get a win. The B.C. Hockey League team lost 5-4 in overtime to the Trail Smoke Eaters Friday night, then rallied form two-goals down in the last five minutes to play for a 4-4 tie with the Victoria Grizzlies Sunday evening. “I thought in certain situations in each game, we made some costly errors,” said Eagles head coach Matt Erhart after Sunday’s contest. “This weekend, it seemed every good chance we gave up ended up in the back of the next. We gave up 48 shots total in two games and gave up nine goals.” The Smoke Eaters had just eight wins in 40 games going into Friday’s contest, and trailed 3-1 after 20 minutes.

Obviously, you want two points. But we got one and at the end of the year it might mean something.” The Eagles record is 25-10-2-6 (won-loss-tied-overtime loss) with 17 games to play. They are in second place in the Coastal Conference, tied with the Cowichan Capitals, four points behind the Powell River Kings with three games in hand. They are in Langley tomorrow (Wednesday) night for a 7 p.m. game against the Rivermen at the Langley Events Centre.

The Devils tallied four goals on six powerplay opportunities, and killed off three of four shorthanded situations to hand the visitors their 26th loss in 34 games. The Ice Breakers opened the scoring seven minutes into the game, but powerplay goals from Stefan Burzan and Colin Catchpole had North Delta up 2-1 after one period.

Surrey/North Delta Leader 21

Jack Brown (left) taught at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary from 1971-93. Although he didn’t teach Alan Clegg, a 1960 Tweedsmuir grad (right), he did teach Clegg’s three kids in the late 1980s and early ‘90s. The two are organizing the school’s 100th anniversary reunion on June 2.

John Buchan, 1st Baron Tweedsmuir, the 15th Governor General of Canada (served 1935-1940).


An old-school reunion Lord Tweedsmuir, Surrey’s first high school, turns 100 this year by Boaz Joseph


on’t tell anyone, but Alan Clegg was once responsible for the evacuation of Lord Tweedsmuir High School. It’s a true story, says the 69-year-old former Tweedsmuir student with a chuckle – part of a Grade 12 high school science project gone wrong in 1960 during his graduating year, when Clegg and his classmates were assigned to produce chlorine gas for credit. It’s an experiment that would hardly be suggested nowadays, he admits. Jack Brown wasn’t around at the time, but did teach social studies, history, law and career education at the school from 1971 to 1998 – and taught Clegg’s three now-grown children. Today, Brown and Clegg, both retired, are working together on the reunion for the schools’ 100th anniversary on June 2. “We’re celebrating the oldest high school in Surrey,” says Clegg. Brown, a local historian and the charter chairman of the Lord Tweedsmuir Alumni Association, says the school’s origins date back to 1912, when a first-year junior high class was added to the five-room Cloverdale Public School. That school was located just west of today’s Cloverdale Traditional School on 56 Avenue. In 1917, Surrey’s had its first (sole) secondary graduate, and the school was renamed Cloverdale Superior School. The following year, there were no graduating students. In 1919, with six grads, the school was renamed Surrey High School; in 1922, it moved to present-day Cloverdale Traditional School, where it stayed until 1957. The school underwent several name changes, finally adopting the name Lord Tweedsmuir in 1940 to honour the late governor general John Buchan, after he passed away that year.


Clockwise from top: The first junior high school class in 1912 was held inside a five-room Surrey Elementary School. In 1957, Lord Tweedsmuir High School was built on the site of the present school’s parking lot. The class of 1938 poses at school, which was located near the present-day Surrey Archives. The word “secondary” only began to be used in the 1990s with school district restructuring. The high school moved to (more or less) its current location on 180 Street near 60 Avenue in 1957, and was rebuilt in its present form in 1993 (though its population was split in 1999, with half of the revised catchment-area students moving to Clayton Height Secondary School). Brown says school is a major part of people’s lives. “They identify, build friendships which

last into adulthood and it’s really important to see those people and re-establish the connections.” Clegg adds that there have also been queries from students about their former teachers. “The attendance of teachers is hugely important. Whenever they hear there will be a school reunion, they want their favourite teachers to be invited to be there. Many students have that bonding that they’ve never lost.”


Connecting with the past by Jennifer Lang


ormer students, staff and friends of Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary now have a way to connect with one another in advance of the school’s 100th anniversary this

spring. A reunion website has been set up by the Lord Tweedsmuir Alumni Association, the group organizing the reunion at the school – which is Surrey’s oldest high school, 6151 180 St. A large reunion celebration is planned for June 2 at the school. All former students, grads, staff and friends – from all years – are invited. Attendees can keep up with details as they get posted to the site, www.lordtweedsmuir, which makes for interesting browsing for those wanting to reminisce, search for old pals, or brush up on school history. The gradually evolving site contains slide shows of historic photographs, along with a place to post class photos, a section on school history, photo albums and more – making it a must-visit web portal for Cloverdalians here and abroad. Former classmates and friends of LTS are already posting profiles and updates on their whereabouts in the “classmates” section, making it easy to catch up online. Alumni from Halifax, Victoria, Surrey, Cloverdale, and even Riyadh, Saudi Arabia have already signed up, leaving “then” and “now” pictures, updates, Facebook links, and even tagging their current whereabouts on an interactive locator map and more. The school’s illustrious namesake, Lord Tweedsmuir, can be found among the list of notable names who have so far posted profiles on the site. “I will be there in spirit if not in body,” the post says. Attendees can buy tickets on the website (there’s a $12 fee to cover costs of security and other services for the event), or donate money to the celebration. Individual class years are encouraged to organize their own class reunions around the same weekend, giving attendees another chance to catch up with former classmates.

Sadly, some gold buyers take advantage of people who are unaware of how much their gold is really worth. And some of the same gold buyers do not know how to properly test the gold, and have little or no equipment to prove the value of the items. At Vancouver Gold, we have made major investments to acquire state-of-the-art gold testing equipment to be able to know exact details of the items being tested. There are a number of ways to evaluate your items, and you will be involved in each step along the way. The whole process usually takes between 15-30 minutes, with the evaluation taking up the majority of the time. Here are a few ways we test your gold:



The first step we use is an acid scratch test. This may be the only test that is used if the test goes well. We scratch the item on a smooth touch stone (similar to slate). This does not damage the piece in any way, but makes a fine mark on the stone.

The second test that may be used is a Tri-Electronic machine. These machines use an electric current to determine the karat of gold.



The third test that may be conducted is a measurement of your item’s density. By weighing the item first on a normal scale, and then underwater, the density is calculated. Since gold is a very heavy metal, the density allows us to calculate the purity of your gold.

We use a rapid and high performance XRF Analyzer to measure the Gold and Silver content of your item. The XRF technique also allows us to detect the presence of other precious metals.
