New $240 suite fee boosts property taxes Homes without secondary dwellings will pay $115 more by Kevin Diakiw TAX BILLS will be increasing by

The new City Centre Library in Whalley is just one of numerous developments under construction as part of the Build Surrey Program.
City to take on $200M debt Surrey is borrowing money for the ﬁrst time in 25 years by Kevin Diakiw AFTER A quarter-century of staying out of the red, Surrey is borrow-
ing close to $200 million over the next five years to finance a lengthy list of capital projects in this city. At least two councillors are reluctant to go into debt to pay for the development projects. Surrey’s finance committee considered the 2011-2015 budget Monday, a document that calls for hikes in utilities and taxes of $115 for the average home. Homeowners with secondary suites will also pay another $240, bringing their increase to $355. In the first year, the city is budgeting to borrow $52.9 million and about $142 million more by 2015. The funds will pay for projects including the City Centre Library
($64 million over the next five years), a City Centre parking facility ($22 million), a new city hall in Whalley ($64 million) and various swimming pools, recreation centres and cricket pitches for a total bill of $283.3 million. To cover the other $83 million necessary for the projects, Surrey is drawing from internal sources ($49 million), government grants ($10 million), cost sharing from other levels of government ($5 million), park development and other dedicated funding ($8.5 million), and various other internal sources. The city has typically borrowed internally, from existing reserves held in investments. City finance staff say they can lock in long-term at a low interest rate
$115 for the average home and if it has a suite, the annual increase will be $355. As The Leader reported in October, Surrey will be implementing a 2.9-per-cent tax increase ($37) next year, while extending a one-per-cent road levy ($13) annually for another five years. As anticipated, utilities are also increasing substantially. Water services are going up $12 annually for metered customers ($60 for flat rate), sewer services are increasing $28 and garbage hauling fees are going up $25. In all, the property taxes and utilities on the average home valued at $531,000 will increase from $2,616 to $2,731. The figures are about the same as anticipated in last year’s five-year
In all, the property taxes and utilities on the average home will increase from $2,616 to $2,731.

Debt: To be paid off in 15 years
Gerald and Tanya Malonzo are grateful for the help they receive from the Surrey Food Bank. The couple, who are on a limited disability income, have three small boys to look after.
From page 1 (three to four per cent) with the Municipal Finance Authority loans. Surrey believes it can beat that rate on its investments as the economy returns to normal. Coun. Marvin Hunt, a fiscal conservative and longtime chair of the city’s finance committee, is concerned about the city going into debt. “I’m not particularly excited about it,” Hunt said Tuesday. “Some of that is good investment in this city, but it’s not my favourite way to do things.” Surrey has been out of debt since it paid off a loan for water infrastructure in the mid-1980s, Hunt said. Coun. Bob Bose said the move is a significant shift in financing that causes him concern. “I’m not going to be supporting the budget,” Bose said. He said the plan to pay back the loan is built upon some questionable assumptions, namely that the existing city hall would easily be leased. “That building is purpose-built,” he said. Surrey plans to pay down the debt in 15 years partly by using revenue from the new secondary suite fee which will generate $23.5 million over the next five years. Other sources to pay down the debt will be contributions from Marvin Hunt the Surrey City Development Corp. ($13.1 million over the next five years), gaming revenue from a Newton casino ($3.4 million), lease revenues from the soon-to-be vacated city hall ($7.6 million) and “other sources not yet identified” ($10.2 million) for a total of $57.9 million over five years. Hunt said revenue from the new parking facility in City Centre could also be used. Coun. Tom Gill, chair of the city’s finance committee, acknowledges Surrey is undertaking a “very aggressive” Build Surrey Program. He said he learned a lesson from architect Bing Thom, who said, “create the city that people want to live in, and everything else will follow.” The budget is expected to be adopted at Monday’s council meeting.
EVAN SEAL / THE LEADER
Low-income couple tries ‘to make the best of it’ The Surrey Food Bank is serving more two-parent families
by Boaz Joseph GERARDO AND Tanya Malonzo might be your neighbours.
They’re the folks you may pass by and acknowledge on your way to work, or not notice at all. They live a quiet life in a Guildford housing complex with their three children, two precocious boys aged three and four, and a seven-year-old boy in Grade 1. They’re also regular clients of the Surrey Food Bank, and they’re not alone. Twenty per cent of food bank clients are from two-parent households. Every second Thursday, two volunteers from the food bank’s Hamper 2 Your Home (H2YH) service bring the Malonzos supplies of canned food, fresh vegetables, dry goods and the occasional treat for the kids. Sometimes, the Malonzos will give neighbours what they don’t need (such as cat food) or will hand things they don’t use back to the volunteers (such as coffee) if they spot them in time before they leave. The service is something the Malonzos have relied on for more than two years. Gerardo and Tanya have medical conditions that keep them from working, and they rely on the hampers to help stretch their
disability income. Their limited mobility – a pre-requisite to use the H2YH program – keeps them close to home for shopping for the rest of their groceries. They’ll usually fill the food gap at the Guildford Wal-Mart. “We’re mobile, but limited,” says Gerardo, 33. The most he can carry is about 30 lbs. for a short distance. His wife also can’t travel far, and never alone. It’s not the first time the family has used the food bank. Seven years ago, when they got married, they lived in Whalley and paid a few visits for hampers while their proximity allowed it. When they moved to Guildford, the distance to the food bank was physically too hard to carry on. They tried to pick up food by bus, but had to give some back because they couldn’t carry it all. They stopped going five years ago. It was a difficult period that continued until they learned about the H2YH program. “Every two weeks, we have a gift of food,” says Gerardo. The hampers delivered to the Malonzos’ door come with occasional surprises. Four-year-old Sam, for instance, loves canned Mandarin See FOOD BANK / Page 5

Dozens of students at Surrey’s Fleetwood Park Secondary have jumped on board with the school’s Surrey Food Bank Volunteer Group. At last count, the bevy of selfless teens numbered about 40 – earning them bragging
rights at the largest volunteer group in the history of the food bank, according to Grade 12 student Gurvir Sangha. The initial group topped 70 students, but had to be pared down to attend the orientation session at the food bank. “We wanted to still have an impact outside of school,” says Sangha, the group’s founder, “but still have an impact close to home.” Last year Fleetwood Park students helped to build a school in Sierra Leone
– a global effort that continues, he says. Since forming the group just this school year, between $2,000 and $3,000 has been raised for the food bank by collecting change, selling reusable bags and holding a barbecue during the grand opening of RBC’s Clayton Heights branch. “The diversity among the group is wide but we all come together in order to help the community,” Sangha says. email@example.com

Bose: 2 more bylaw officers are not enough to crack down on illegal suites From page 1 plan, but a $240 suite fee sends the figure much higher than expected. Surrey has managed to keep the taxes in check despite some immense cost pressures, including $11-million worth of increases in staffing levels and salaries, both within city hall and the RCMP. Part of that figure takes into account the hiring of eight more firefighters, 10 new Mounties, and and an additional two bylaw officers. Paying for those increases was possible with the use of $6 million generated from the property tax increase, along with $5.1 million in new growth.
Surrey staff also expect to borrow $4 million from future surpluses to balance the books, which has been typical of budgets over the last decade. In 2010, Surrey had the lowest property taxes in the region at an average of $1,308 and the city is expected to remain the lowest going into next year. The road levy â€“ due to expire this year â€“ will continue to 2015. The initial purpose for the levy was for work on local side roads. It will now help pay for improvements on major arterials, such as King George Boulevard and Fraser Highway. Coun. Bob Bose will not be supporting the budget, noting he
believes the city will need more than two additional bylaw officers as it embarks on enforcing a new law for secondary suites. Without question, he said, the single biggest concern residents have over the implementation of a new secondary suite bylaw is lack of enforcement. With only two more bylaw officers being added next year, Bose believes getting control of 17,000 known â€“ and many more unknown â€“ secondary suites will be impossible. The cityâ€™s finance committee endorsed the budget on Monday and is expected to give it final approval next week.

Food bank: Is a â€˜Godsendâ€™ From page 3
Four-year-old Sam, for instance, loves canned Mandarin oranges, which the family would not have purchased otherwise. And through the Surrey Food Bank, the boys had their first taste of hot chocolate. â€œWeâ€™ll have to stock up on it now,â€? says Tanya. They also gobble up string beans and broccoli. Gerardo admits that neither of them are skilled cooks, often making do with boiled vegetables and pasta. â€œWe just try to make the best of it, I guess.â€? Gerardo says he knows there is a level of increased demand during the holidays at the Surrey Food Bank just by looking at the contents of the hampers. These are lean times and there is a shortage of corporate and
personal donors, as well as volunteers. â€œThe amount of food they give us makes us really thankful. The food bank or any organization trying to help people like ourselves who are low income are a Godsend.â€? The Surrey Food Bank is in the midst of its December fundraising/donation campaign. It needs to raise $450,000 in order to keep the shelves stocked through 2011. If you can help with money or food â€“ or can volunteer over the holiday season â€“ contact the food bank at 604-581-5443. More information is at www. surreyfoodbank.org

QUESTION OF THE WEEK
Friday December 10 2010
Surrey North Delta Leader
Does Delta really want to preserve trees? AS MY DAUGHTER and I were deliver-
ing papers along 112 Street, I was appalled to learn that the city has approved the removal of 17 trees at 8551 112 St. in order to replace the current house with two new houses. At least 12 of these trees are either on city property or on the property line of a neighbouring owner who does not want the trees removed. I was further enraged when I learned that if I, as a property owner, were to cut a branch off one of my trees that was larger
than 2.8 inches without a permit, I could be fined. Meanwhile, the city is approving the cutting of 17 beautiful trees gracing one of the major streets in our community. When a new home was recently built on our street the lot was beautifully developed while leaving five large trees on city property. I have a hard time believing that it is necessary to cut down all of these trees to develop this property on 112 Street. If Delta really believes what it states on its pamphlet – Tree Care: A Guide to
Delta’s Tree Cutting Regulation Bylaw, which states, “trees play a significant role in our lives by providing countless and irreplaceable benefits to our community. The Tree Cutting Regulation bylaw is intended to help preserve, protect and strengthen our urban forest as one of Delta’s natural assets” – it would find way to preserve at least some of these trees that grace our community.

A North Deltan’s Christmas wish WARM COFFEE thaws the frost from my Saturday morning
view of the Alex Fraser Bridge, the fixture beyond our hillside Sunbury kitchen window that contrasts the river and North Shore mountains. Today yet another stalled car is blocking the light weekend traffic with the abandoning driver opting for a chilly walk. Moments pass and the red-coated driver has stopped walking midspan, possibly to soak up the panorama. The clock ticks faster and nagging doubts flare about this person’s intentions. For the first time in seven years I dial 911 because something is screaming to me that a personal struggle is unfolding before my eyes. Police cars arrive and bridge traffic ceases. I hold my breath as officers slowly approach the driver. My imagination races to find a logical explanation to the delicate distance the officers seem forced to maintain. My wife bursts into sobs from the next room’s window as I try to process the red coat freefalling from sight. There is no frame of reference to make sense of such a scene. Who makes that phone call and how can someone possibly receive it? This is the tragic face of the softening words, “police incident.” This is a time of year where most of us enjoy family, friends, good health and merriment. We reflect on and celebrate the good things in life. Unfortunately for a few this can be a time of overwhelming stress and lost hope. My Christmas wish is that these lost souls get rescued from their despair.
I THINK IT’S TIME for the local
investment community to place a professional sports franchise south of the Fraser River. The Whitecaps are moving farther away, tickets to Canucks’ games are not in the family friendly price range and the B.C. Lions... can we say once again “maybe next year?” Why not have a local CFL franchise? Hamilton, Winnipeg and Edmonton all operate with a population catchment of 700,000-800,000. Regina has about 200,000. While the Rider Nation is one million strong, the realistic catchment base is likely closer to 500,000- 600,000. Sure Surrey has only 425,000 people, however, including everything from Delta to Chilliwack it would be closer to 875,000 to draw from. Takers anyone?
Women still suffer injustices IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE that, in
After witnessing an individual jump from the Alex Fraser Bridge, a letter writer hopes any other such ‘lost souls’ can be rescued from despair.
Columnist feeds dysfunctional system RE: “HE’S NOT the real Bill Bennett (B.C. Views, Nov. 24),” and “How Gordon Campbell was toppled,” (Dec. 1). So somebody speaks his mind in this political system and Tom Fletcher is all over him like a cheap suit. This system is a stale vestige that was designed more for order than democracy, but Fletcher is right in line with that and on the side of the authoritarianism-cum-despotism that has cost one leader his job and has the other one on thin ice. It grows despots because of its stifling shortcomings and needs balance. What is happening should make a light go on for Fletcher. And don’t give me the crap about it being “the Westminster system.” The parliamentary system is anything it is made to be, with examples of its

various forms throughout the world. It is notoriously short on democratic balance in its original form and this should be fixed so one can speak out without criticism. But you media people are part of this system that has hijacked democracy under the “party discipline” excuse. You make a good living off of this esoteric world because it is easy to sound superior to its moronic posture, spin, attack, posture, spin, attack limitations of communication. You are complicit in its fingernails-ona-blackboard countenance with the normal world. Bennett’s outspokenness was a breath of fresh air. Fletcher’s attack was a breath of journalistic halitosis.

Falcon is the new Campbell IT SEEMS Kevin Falcon is the perfect, new-and-improved, younger
Gordon Campbell. If you liked Gordon Campbell you will surely love Kevin Falcon, as he fervently believes that his mentor is right and 91 per cent of the voters are just wrong. He likes the HST and is sure that Mr. Campbell, like himself, will go down in history as a great leader, so he is likely to closely mimic Mr. Campbell’s leadership style. If you can’t trust Mr. Campbell’s mini-me, who can you trust? I have news for Mr. Falcon: I for one will never accept an unfair tax that adds hundreds of dollars to the medical treatments that I need to keep my body functioning. Everything about this tax grab is bad, for one thing it hits the elderly hardest as they are most likely to have to pay tradespeople to do most of the work around their homes and in the past that labour was exempt from PST. Personally, Mr. Falcon I wish you the best, because I really would like to see a total change of B.C.’s political environment in the next election. Wayne Clark, Maple Ridge
this day and age, some women in the world are still being denied fairness of treatment by the men in their lives, and in such brutal manners as public flogging for simple infractions as not wearing a body veil, regardless of the blazing desert heat. Meanwhile, men go clothed in a more comfortable, appropriate manner suitable to the extremelyhot climate. And this is but one example of the injustice. Imagine what a woman endures if she fails to feed her husband at dinner time? What it should come down to is if women are to suffer disadvantages because they are female, then they should also receive advantages because they are female – i.e., protection by the compassionate male folk around them from any physical harm from abusive men in the women’s lives.

Mental illness, substance abuse cited in dragging death Coronerâ€™s jury recommends tighter methadone controls by Dan Ferguson A CORONERâ€™S inquest
into the dragging death of a 53-year-old man by a transit bus in Delta has called for tighter controls on methadone dispensing to addicts and better handling of mentally ill people by hospitals. Jasdeep Sandhu died after he was hit by a car then run over by a Coast Mountain bus which dragged him six kilometres through the Massey Tunnel from Ladner to Richmond on Oct. 3, 2008. The inquest determined the immediate cause of death was multiple blunt force injuries with mental illness and substance abuse as contributing factors. Recommendations by the jury included an end to the practice of allowing methadone â€œcarriesâ€? by heroin addicts in treatment. Addicts are initially required to take their methadone while a medical professional
watches. But after an addict in treatment has passed certain medical and behaviour tests, they are allowed to take more than a one-day supply of the drug used to ease withdrawal symptoms. The jury also said medical records should contain alerts so hospital staff know when a patient has a history of mental illness or substance abuse. And they called for a policy that requires hospital staff to contact the family of such patients before discharging them, and to make sure they get home safely. There should be more provincial government funding for mental health programs, the jury said, especially programs for so-called â€œdual diagnosisâ€? patients who have some form of mental or physical illness along with addiction. The results of the hearing, which was held in November, were presented to the Delta
Police Board meeting Wednesday morning. Delta Police Department reports show Sandhu was arrested around 12 noon the day of his death for appearing to be intoxicated. When the officer involved was unable to locate any immediate family to take responsibility for the man, he was transported to the Delta Police headquarters to sober up. After officers saw no improvement in Sandhuâ€™s condition by mid-afternoon they took him to Delta Hospital in Ladner across the street from police headquarters for an assessment. Sandhu appeared to be â€œcompetent and cooperativeâ€? with ER staff, according to a Fraser Health Authority statement. After he was fed, Sandhu left the ER around 6:30 p.m. and was picked up a few minutes later for causing a disturbance at the Ladner Leisure Centre across the street from the hospital. After speaking with
Sandhu the arresting officer was convinced he was lucid and able to look after himself. He was offered a ride to a bus stop and accepted. Sandhu was hit by a car around 11 p.m. as he walked across Highway 17 near Ladner Trunk Road. The driver of the car pulled over and called the police. But when he returned to the site he didnâ€™t find a body â€“ only a shirt and a jacket. A Coast Mountain bus had driven by and managed to pick up the pedestrian in the undercarriage. The bus travelled along Highway 17, through the Massey Tunnel, and then along Highway 99 for about six kilometres. When the driver noticed something wrong with his brakes, he pulled over to check the problem. Thatâ€™s when he saw Sandhu underneath and called police. â€”with ďŹ les from Philip Raphael and CTV News

A SEVEN-YEAR-OLD Langley girl was airlifted to
hospital Tuesday following a three-vehicle crash at 192 Street and 24 Avenue. According to police, the girl â€“ who was travelling with her six-year-old brother and their 43-year-old mother â€“ were in a Ford Taurus eastbound on 24 Avenue when the vehicle was struck in the intersection by a Saturn that was southbound on 192 Street. The collision caused the Ford to collide with a northbound semi tractor-trailer. The girlâ€™s injuries were initially believed life-threatening. Police said Wednesday her condition was later determined less serious. The boy was released from hospital Tuesday night. The Saturn driver, a 49-year-old White Rock man, and the semi driver, a 45-year-old man, suffered minor injuries, as did the Ford driver.

At about 8 a.m., a semi-truck was travelling northbound on 160 Street and may have rear-ended a Ford Explorer at the intersection of 92 Avenue. The collision pushed the Explorer into oncoming traffic, where it struck a southbound Kia, which then collided with a southbound Nissan. The woman driving the Explorer suffered lifethreatening injuries and was transported to hospital. Occupants of the other vehicles minor injuries.

STEVE FONYO has pleaded guilty to
threatening the woman he just married, as well as unrelated charges of fraud, credit card fraud and driving with a suspended licence. The one-legged cancer survivor from Vernon who is famous for running across Canada made the pleas on Tuesday in Surrey Provincial Court. Fonyo, a Surrey resident, will next appear in court Jan. 11, 2011 for a presentence report. The 45-year-old was charged with one count of uttering threats against wife Lisa Greenwood on Nov. 7. Greenwood said she and her husband got into an argument because he was stressed out over finances. He hadnâ€™t been paid for work heâ€™d done, she said, and their argument escalated to the point where she called police. They arrested her husband even though she didnâ€™t want him charged, she said. By law, police are required to lay charges in domestic assault cases even if the alleged victim withdraws their complaint. Fonyo also pleaded guilty to a charge of credit fraud laid in July that nearly scuttled his wedding to Greenwood. He was released from jail in Surrey in time for the Aug. 28 ceremony at Fonyo Beach in Victoria after an unidentified

will not be testifying at his murder trial and his lawyer will not be calling any evidence to defend the Surrey man accused of murdering his pregnant wife, then setting fire to her body. Manjit Panghali was four months pregnant with her second child when she disappeared in October 2006. Her badly burned corpse was discovered near a truck route in South Delta a few days later. Her husband was charged with the murder after a five-month investigation. At Panghaliâ€™s trial on Wednesday, defence lawyer Michael Tammen told the judge he would not be calling any witnesses and that Panghali would not be taking the stand in his
Mukhtiar Panghali own defence. Tammen told reporters that the reasons behind those decisions were between him and his client, but that Crown prosecutors had not presented convincing evidence to convict Panghali. â€œItâ€™s nothing more than circumstantial evidence. Thereâ€™s no direct evidence as to who killed Manjit â€“ the Crown has presented whatever evidence they could cobble together of a circumstantial nature,â€?
Tammen said outside the court. Pathologist Dr. Charles Lee testified that Manjitâ€™s attacker strangled her with his bare hands but not before brutally assaulting her. Lee said that Manjit sustained a blunt force injury to her lower pelvic area, leading to hemorrhaging, which may have been caused by a punch or a kick. No forensic evidence was presented from the Panghalisâ€™ Surrey home, where prosecutors say Manjit was choked to death, and no evidence about where she was for the five days between her disappearance and the discovery of her body. The Crownâ€™s case included testimony from Manjitâ€™s sister, who said Panghali seemed unconcerned about his wifeâ€™s disappearance. â€“ with ďŹ les from CTV

Watts fourth best mayor Worldwide competition announces results by Kevin Diakiw SURREY MAYOR Dianne Watts has been named the fourth best mayor in the world, by the City Mayors Foundation. Watts was nominated and shortlisted for World Mayor in July, and on Tuesday, she was named fourth. “Residents of Surrey credit the mayor with transforming the city from a ‘run-down, drug-infested place’ into a community that now attracts new residents and business,” judges said. “In November 2010 she turned down the chance to run for state premier of British Columbia in order to finish her work as Surrey’s mayor.” First place went to Marcelo Ebrard, Mayor of Mexico City, following an 18-month public nomination and voting process. “He has championed women’s and minorities rights and has become an outspoken and interna-

The society claims the federal government has violated a conservation covenant to protect Burns Bog by allowing construction of the South Fraser Perimeter Road, and has included the Attorney General of Canada, Minister of Transport and Infrastructure, Minister of Environment, and Minister of Fisheries in its list of defendants. In a media release Olson said, “The construction of the South Fraser Perimeter Road will have a significant impact to the health and well being of residents, plants and animals alike. Our governments have failed to conduct a thorough and credible analysis of the environmental impact of paving a highway through Burns Bog, over valuable farmland, and along the Fraser River.” The society is seeking more than $50,000 in damages.
Save your money...
The SFPR is a four-lane highway currently under construction that will connect Deltaport Way to Highway 1 and the Golden Ears Bridge, and along the way skirts the northern edge of Burns Bog. Olson said the timing was right for the society to launch the lawsuit now, noting they had found the right lawyer, Jay Straith, who they have hired with a grant from West Coast Environmental Law. “The governments have failed to honour their commitment to protect Burns Bog under a Conservation Covenant and Management Plan signed by the Governments of Canada and British Columbia, the City of Vancouver, and the Corporation of Delta,” said Straith in a release. “They must be held accountable for their actions and negligence.” As well, Olson said they were encouraged by a Supreme Court of Canada decision made at the start of this year on the Red Chris copper and gold mine project in B.C. that found the federal government erred when it failed to undertake a comprehensive environmental assessment of the entire project. Olson said it’s the society’s mission to protect the peatland which has been referred to as the “lungs of the Lower Mainland,” and failing to pursue legal action would be counter to their mandate.

Business lobby slams civic ‘overspending’ Surrey among cities outspending growth and inﬂation by Kevin Diakiw and Jeff Nagel MOST B.C. cities are ramping up their spending far
faster than is affordable, warns the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB). The business lobby group’s third annual Municipal Spending Watch report found expenditures of B.C. cities rose twice as fast as the combined rate of inflation and population growth from 2000 to 2008. “They are addicted to overspending,” CFIB vicepresident Laura Jones said, noting spending rose 58 per cent over those years, compared to a 29-percent rise in inflation and population. The CFIB, which has repeatedly called for municipal budget restraint, says civic spending should be capped at the combined rate of population and inflation growth. Had that been done in 2000, the study says, the typical B.C. family of four would have had an extra $904 to spend in 2008 alone. Cities on average spent 9.7 per cent more on operating costs in 2008 than in 2007, while population and inflation rose a combined four per cent. Jones said civic leaders are masters at making controversial spending cuts to “perpetuate the myth that they are hard done by” while neglecting to tackle other costs. “It’s grossly unfair to taxpayers who suffer tax and fee increases that outstrip their pay increases.” The report lists Prince George as the worst offender among large B.C. cities, with 2000-2008 spending climbing almost four times faster than inflation and population. In the Lower Mainland, spending rose more than three times faster in North Vancouver District (3.41) and West Vancouver (3.19); and two to three times faster in Pitt Meadows (2.8) North Vancouver City (2.76), White Rock (2.58), Maple Ridge (2.38), Delta (2.36), Chilliwack (2.34), Langley Township (2.33), Coquitlam (2.26), Langley City (2.14) and Port Coquitlam (2.12). Spending also outstripped population and inflation growth in Vancouver (1.92 times), Surrey (1.90), Richmond (1.83), Burnaby (1.67), Mission (1.64), Port Moody (1.38) and New Westminster (1.15). The business group says programs and services will ultimately be at risk and it also wants a munici-
pal Auditor-General created to oversee cities. At a Fiscal Sustainability Gap (FSG) of 1.92, Surrey is spending almost twice as much as the rate of growth and inflation. That said, with per-capita spending of $797, Surrey is still one of the least-expensive places to live in B.C. Victoria spends more than double Surrey’s percapita spending, with the capital spending at $1,697 and Vancouver followed at $1,574. Delta’s spending came in at $1,354 per capita and with a FSG of 2.36. The provincial average FSG was 2.01, just over twice the growth and inflation. Like last year’s spending watch report (which used 2007 data), Surrey again had the lowest spending per capita on cities with populations more than 25,000. Delta also kept the same rank as eighth highest. Penticton had the distinction of having the highest spending per capita at $2,032. City of Surrey staff have said the increase in spending over the last six years is coming out of a 10-year freeze on property taxes in 2004. Since then, the city has gone on an RCMP shopping spree to bring the number of police officers up to the national average of one cop per 700 people. Delta Mayor Lois Jackson said there are many reasons for the extra spending in her municipality, including a program to pay off $48 million in debt over the last decade. Add to that a movement to add several police officers and firefighters in the past few years, she said. On the capital side, Jackson said in 2008, Delta undertook an ambitious addition to Sungod Arena. Municipal leaders also contend unionized labour costs are difficult to control and there’s less fat to cut from local government than business critics believe. Cities in Metro Vancouver are bracing for a worsening cost squeeze in the years ahead. They say major utility expenses are being forced upon them by federal or provincial policies – including water and sewage treatment megaprojects estimated to cost billions of dollars.

household’s monthly electricity bill climb $7 in each of the next three years. BC Hydro is now projecting a series of rate increases that will raise a typical monthly residential bill by $21 – a nearly 30 per cent jump from $71 to $92 – by 2013. The Crown corporation needs to raise $6 billion to upgrade aging power stations, transmission lines and the Vancouver city centre transmission system. The planned hikes mean a typical home will pay about $250 more in 2013 than it did this year. B.C. Public Interest Advocacy Centre executive director Jim Quail said the rate increases are likely to continue indefinitely, with electricity bills doubling about every eight years. The much higher cost of modern power infrastructure compared to the dams built in the 1960s is the main reason. email@example.com

Railway overpasses will eliminate at-grade crossings in Surrey, Delta and Langley. BLACK PRESS PHOTO
SALE ON NOW! 15 SHOPPING DAYS LEFT
REACTION IS mixed among business owners who could potentially be affected by the construction of three new railway overpasses and feeder routes along the Surrey-Langley border. The so-called “combo-pack” of the $360-million Roberts Bank Rail Corridor Program will include the construction of overpasses on 192 Street and 54 Avenue. However, the longest of the three will be built along 196 Street, crossing the Langley Bypass in a heavily developed business area. Dan Springman, owner of Springman’s Saab on the southeast side of the Bypass, learned through the grapevine about plans to build the 196 Street overpass directly above his car dealership. “I haven’t seen the actual drawings. I found out through a friend who has an engineering company that it’s going to be on top of me,” he said. So far, Springman said, he has plenty of questions and very few answers. “How high will it be, where does it go? We don’t know anything. No one’s told me,” he said. “I’m concerned because we have no knowledge of it, and I think it will have a huge effect on us.” Springman also wonders what will happen with respect to a creek that runs behind his dealership. When he bought the property in 1997, he said, he wanted to have a culvert installed, but his application was denied by the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans. Now that there are plans for major construction in the area, he wonders how the issue of the creek will be addressed. “We weren’t allowed to put in a culvert, and then these guys come along, and who knows what they can do.” Across the Bypass, Doug Seal, manager of Willowbrook Chrysler, has some concerns about the project as well. “From a personal, selfish point of view, I can’t see it doing anything good for my business, but I understand they can’t stop the project for a neighbour who’s unhappy,” he said last Friday, after looking over the design on the Roberts Bank Rail Corridor website. “I can’t see that it would be too attractive to have a massive freeway next to our business.” Like Springman, Seal was concerned with the lack of notice he’s received
from the people in charge of the project. “It seems to have popped up by surprise. You’d think somebody would stop by and say ‘we’re doing this massive development right by your property.’” And he’s concerned the overpass could create further back-ups on an already-congested road. “Traffic along 196 Street (between 60 Avenue and Fraser Highway) is often backed up very badly now,” he said. “You can wait two or three lights to get through. Now you’re going to add on a massive overpass? It’s not going to work.” Of the three overpasses included in the combo-pack, the 192 Street improvement is the only one that makes sense to Seal. “It’s an existing road that gets used,” he said. The rest, he said, is a waste of tax dollars. “As a taxpayer, I’m concerned with the amount of money being spent. “It’s (196 Street) a road from nowhere to nowhere. I can’t understand spending that massive amount of money.” However, Aly Sunderji, owner of Samz pub at the corner of 56 Avenue and the 196 Street right of way, sees some potential benefit in the project, which will include developing what is now a gravel lane into a two-lane road, south to 54 Avenue, and the installation of a traffic signal at the corner of 196 Street and 56 Avenue. He learned about the plans through a business associate, but the news didn’t come as a complete surprise. “We always knew it would be a road someday,” he said. The opening up of 196 Street will create more traffic and potentially more exposure for his pub, Sunderji believes. However, it will also mean that Samz will lose the overflow parking spaces along the lane immediately east of the building — property Sunderji currently leases from the City of Surrey. But he said that with the new drinking and driving laws in effect, he doesn’t need to supply as much parking as he once did. The other benefit of the development Sunderji sees is the removal of an undesirable element — “crackheads and druggies” — who hang around the wooded gravel right-of-way next to his pub. “It will be nice to get rid of that,” he said.

Light up the lanes: the Vancouver Heritage Foundation hosts the ﬁrst-ever Laneway House Tour Saturday The Vancouver Heritage Foundation is hosting its first-ever Laneway House Tour this weekend, and if ticket sales are any indication, it’s already a success. “We’ve pretty much sold out. I think there might be 20 tickets left,” VHF executive director Diane Switzer said Monday. “For many people, this will be their first look inside a laneway house. Laneway housing was only approved a short time ago (in Vancouver), so now we’re seeing the first batch of laneway homes out of the 100

Cintas pitches in to help Black Press donate the 1,500 coats the company collected at its Metro Vancouver offices for the GVHBA’s Coats for Kids campaign. Clockwise from centre: Cintas general manager Henk Colyn, Rod Ivey, Maureen Rutherford, Jacob Hansma and Megan Procopio prepare to hit the road with the warm clothing. Tricia Leslie photo
’Tis the season: giving is in TRICIA LESLIE Once again, the local community has proven it is comprised of generous, giving people. They donated thousands of coats and warm articles of clothing – including some brandnew purchases and handmade items – to the Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association’s 15th annual Coats for Kids campaign. All donations will go to the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau and other charitable organizations, which will ensure the coats and clothes are given to those who need it most. Black Press community newspapers offered most of its Metro Vancouver newspaper offices
as drop-off sites for the GVHBA initiative and amazingly, brought in 1,500 coats for the cause. “Coats for Kids was embraced with overwhelming enthusiasm by our staff and by our readers,” says Black Press senior vice-president of sales and marketing Candy Hodson. “It is so heartwarming to see the profound impact we can have in supporting charities at this time of year.” At Cintas – ‘the uniform people’ – that sentiment was echoed by general manager Henk Colyn, who provided a Cintas truck to transport the mountains of clothing Black Press collected. “Our strong community awareness has

always been driven first and foremost by our partners from the community,” he says. “But it is through efforts and partnerships, such as with New Local Home and Black Press and Coats for Kids that our partners can really see what the combined efforts of many can do.” GVHBA president and CEO Peter Simpson says this will likely be a record-breaking year, with more than 3,000 coats collected; the final tally is still being counted. “Every year, the public responds very generously. They open their closets and their hearts,” Simpson says. “We’re very pleased to see the support and the generosity. What a great response.”
building permits that have been approved.” Six houses are on the tour, ranging from traditional to modern in all different sizes, Switzer says, and notes that only laneway houses that have been constructed behind existing houses are on the tour. Part of the VHF’s mandate is to keep city streetscapes as unchanged as possible, but because laneway houses are behind the main home, on the lane, they can help add residents without changes to the streetscape, Switzer says. While laneway homes can range from 200-250 square feet to nearly 1,000 sq. ft. – depending on the size of the existing lot – the homes on tour range from about 500 to 750 sq. ft., she says, in one- and two-bedroom designs. “I think people are interested to know what it would be like to live in (a laneway home), or people who already live in small spaces can come and get ideas for their own interior design,” Switzer says. “This might be something some homeowners want to do in their own backyard, whether for renters or for a family member.” The tour happens at select homes in Vancouver on Saturday, Dec. 11 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and costs $50 ($25 tax receipts issued upon request). Project teams will be on-site to discuss each home and there will be Christmas light displays, hot chocolate and cookies.

Surrey stops Westside 6-2
Quick start for United by Rick Kupchuk A WEEK AFTER losing to the Pre-
mier Division’s last place team, the Surrey United Firefighters won for the ninth time in 14 starts this season, hammering Westside FC 6-2 Saturday afternoon at Cloverdale Athletic Park. A week earlier, Surrey lost 1-0 to the Serbian White Eagles. The victory kept United in second place in the Vancouver Metro Soccer League’s top division, as their record improved to 9-2-3 (won-tied-lost). Surrey, the defending league champions, are seven points back of Coquitlam with one game in hand. United wasted little time taking the lead, with Rizal Ganief scoring on a penalty and Lucas Barrett upping the lead to 2-0 just 15 minutes into the contest. Westside got one back, but Raakim Amijee restored the twogoal Surrey lead before half time. Andrew Proctor, Ganief with his second of the game, and Cam Wilson tallied for United in the second half. United will be away from home tonight (Friday) when the take on third place West Van FC, which is four points back of Surrey. ICST Pegasus won their third consecutive game Friday night. Playing at home at Newton Athletic Park against the last place Serbian White Eagles, Pegasus scored three times in the last 25 minutes of play for a 4-2 victory. Omari Aldridge gave Pegasus a 1-0 lead after 20 minutes, but 45 minutes later, they trailed 2-1. David Samra tied it for Pegasus, then the Surrey side went ahead to stay when Jag
Gill scored in the 75th minute. Aldridge added an insurance goal. Earning the maximum nine points in the past three games, Pegasus has climbed to ninth place with a 5-2-7 record. They are in Vancouver tomorrow (Saturday) against Westside. Akal FC failed to keep pace with Pegasus, as they traveled to Vancouver where they were blanked 3-0 by Columbus FC. Akal’s record fell to 3-5-6, two points ahead of the 12th place Sapperton Rovers. Akal FC will host Sapperton Sunday evening at 6 p.m. at Newton Athletic Park. The Punjab Hurricanes were on the road at Minoru Park, falling to the Richmond FC Hibernians. The Hurricanes had a pair of one goal leads, on goals by Roman Doutkevich and Joey Brar, but couldn’t hold off Richmond. The Hurricanes are 13th in the 14-team Premier Division at 2-4-8. They are at home tomorrow night at 6:15 p.m. at Newton Athletic Park against Delta United. ■ North Delta United won their second consecutive Fraser Valley Soccer League game, climbing up to sixth place in the 10-team Premier Division. Lucas Johns and Nick Baronian netted the North Delta goals in a 2-0 win over Golden Ears United Saturday in Maple Ridge. United is now 4-1-6, one point back of fifth place Golden Ears. North Delta will be at home Saturday evening at 6 p.m., hosting last place Aldergrove United at Dennis Elsom Park.

Cloverdale MLA unveils key allies
Falcon to run for Liberal leadership by Jeff Nagel
EVAN SEAL / THE LEADER
Judges are complaining about ‘notorious’ trial delays at Surrey Provincial Court.
Backlog at Surrey court
KEVIN FALCON took over frontrunner status in the B.C. Liberal leadership race, with at least 10 MLAs backing his bid to replace Gordon Campbell as party leader and B.C.’s next premier. He didn’t roll in on his trademark mountain bike or the excavator he once used to knock down the Coquihalla Highway toll booths. But the Surrey-Cloverdale MLA and former health minister – he resigned the post Monday night – had plenty of human props, including a crowd of more than 100 cheering and clapping supporters at the Tuesday morning announcement at the Surrey Museum in Cloverdale. “It is time for a new generation of leadership,” Falcon said, promising to listen, learn and “lead decisively.”
Criminal cases are being dismissed due to lengthy delays by Dan Ferguson A LACK of resources at Surrey Provincial Court
is causing a backlog of criminal proceedings that is forcing judges to throw out cases for lack of timely prosecution, one judge said last week. “There are not enough judges, court staff or sheriffs in Surrey,” said Judge Peder Gulbransen. “The backlog is so great and the courts so crowded, that in many cases there will be an unreasonable delay should there be even one adjournment on a trial date.” He said the problem has become “chronic.”
Gulbransen made the comments in his written reasons for judgment in the case of a man who was charged with impaired driving and refusing to give a breath sample on Oct. 13, 2007 but never stood trial because of repeated failures to get court time. As the man’s request, Gulbransen threw out the charges on Nov. 22 of this year, issuing a stay of proceedings due to excessive “institutional” delays. The judge said at least 25 months of the three-year wait was because of a shortage of court resources, more than double the acceptable eight- to 10-month institutional wait time allowed under Canadian court guidelines.
Personal Injury Law, ICBC Claims
See LIBERALS / Page 3
In his written decision, which was published online Thursday (Nov. 25), Gulbransen said the number of days available to handle criminal cases in Surrey has steadily declined over the last five years. He said there are fewer judges to hear longer and more complicated cases because many judges have retired and have not been replaced. There are fewer sheriffs and court staff too, with the result that “it is not uncommon for there to be days when there are not enough clerks to staff the courtrooms,” Gulbransen said.

Rams mark their territory in Langley Junior football team leaves Surrey after 63 years by Gary Ahuja JUNIOR FOOTBALL is a foot in the door for burgeoning pro players. Those were the words of B.C. Lions kicker Paul McCallum. “I wouldn’t be where I am today without junior football,” McCallum said Sunday afternoon in Langley, after the team announced last
Football Conference (BCFC), a six-team junior league for players between the ages of 18 and 22. But on Sunday, the organization was at McLeod Park holding its first official press conference since announcing the move. “We are thrilled to be playing out of (McLeod Park),” said Gord Querin, the Rams’ presi-
Shawn Olsen, the head coach of the UBC Thunderbirds, and Will Loftus, a 10-year CFL
veteran, who will coach the Rams’ special teams and defensive backs. When the Rams first
announced the team was leaving South Surrey, team officials cited inadequate facilities at South
Surrey Athletic Park as the chief reason for the move. The park is currently without a number
of amenities – namely locker rooms and bleachers – that a junior football team requires.

Young Surrey dancer takes starring role in Christmas ballet alongside professional dancers
Capturing Clara by Sheila Reynolds
t’s the second year she’s done it. But this year Amanda Solheim is just a little bit more excited about her upcoming holiday dance performance in Vancouver. The 11-year-old was cast as an angel last year in Goh Ballet’s presentation of The Nutcracker, which places amateurs on stage alongside professional dancers. Amanda had such a good experience, she thought she’d try out for this year’s show and headed to open auditions in October. “It was pretty scary because there was a lot of good people around me,” she remembers. “I was thinking I might not get a part.” Amanda went in, danced the best she could for the panel of judges, and headed home to Surrey. It wasn’t until the phone rang a few days later that she learned she actually did land a role. And it wasn’t just any part, but the star role of Clara. “I was very excited because I didn’t think I’d get a big part,” says Amanda, who’s in Grade 6 at Erma Stephenson Elementary. Since then, she’s been deep in rehearsals, not only dancing, but honing her acting skills as well. For the uninitiated, The Nutcracker – set to the music of Tchaikovsky – tells the story of Clara, who receives a nutcracker doll from her uncle at a Christmas party. She falls asleep and dreams that her gift comes to life, forming an army of toy soldiers, battling a Mouse King and taking Clara on a magical journey through the Land of Snow and Kingdom of Sweets where they meet characters like the Sugar
Plum Fairy and Snow Queen. This production, which takes place at The Centre in Vancouver for Performing Arts, features principal dancers from The National Ballet of Canada and Pacific Northwest Ballet, with live music by the Vancouver Opera Orchestra. The show is choreographed by Anna-Marie Holmes and also features an illusionist, ballroom dancers and gymnasts from throughout the Lower Mainland. Amanda has been dancing since she was four years old. She studies dance at Studio One Dance Centre in Aldergrove, taking not only ballet, but jazz, hip hop, tap, lyrical and musical theatre. Still, ballet is her favourite. “Everything’s proper and there’s lots of technique,” she says. As for performing in front of an audience of hundreds, Amanda admits she gets a little nervous. “I just kind of get butterflies. After the first couple of minutes my nerves go down. I’m not nervous while I’m dancing, just before.” The budding ballerina says she will likely audition for the traditional holiday ballet again next year. And while there are plenty of roles young dancers can take on, Amanda has her sights set on one in particular. “Maybe Clara again?” Goh Ballet’s presentation of The Nutcracker takes place Dec. 16-19 at 7:30 p.m., with 2 p.m. matinées Dec. 18 and 19 at The Centre in Vancouver for Performing Arts. Tickets range from $28 to $83.25, available at www.ticketmaster.ca or by calling 604-280-3311.

IT TAKES TALENT and timing to pull off five different
chorus roles in a single stage production. Fortunately for fans of British-style pantomime, Cloverdale’s Michelle Gaetz has both. For the third year in a row, she’s appearing in White Rock Players’ Christmas panto, a wacky version of Robinson Crusoe, literature’s ultimate shipwreck survivor. In panto, the chorus is no mere backdrop – it’s a centrepiece of the production. Chorus actors sing, joke and interact with the story’s main characters. Pantos are a traditional holiday offering the whole family will enjoy, blending acting, music, song and dance with broad, slapstick comedy. It’s tantalizing turf for an actor, but surprisingly, Gaetz never wanted to go the community theatre route. She has always set her sights on film and television. But three years ago, she auditioned for the popular holiday panto – on a dare – and won the role of Princess Alice in Puss in Boots. The stage experience fanned the flames, turning a love of acting into a full-blown passion for her craft. The task awaiting her in Robinson Crusoe might seem daunting; she’s playing five different chorus characters, a job that requires multiple, lightningquick costume changes. “It’s a tight squeeze between entrances, but that’s what makes the show that much more exciting,” she says. “It keeps me on my toes.” Gaetz can’t wait to see the audience’s reaction to this year’s show, presented at Coast Capital Playhouse. Robinson Crusoe, by Charlotte Johnston and adapted by The Charlottans, runs Wednesdays through Saturdays until Dec. 26 at 8 p.m. Sunday matinees are at 2:30 p.m. Visit whiterockplayers.ca.

Recognized for gallantry
rom 1963–66, a young man served in the Combined British Commonwealth force during the Malayan Emergency. The force operated alongside Malayan armed forces, with help from the indigenous tribes in Borneo, as Malaysia battled hard to maintain its sovereignty against communist aggression and terrorism. It was a tough battle that mostly involved jungle warfare and was the only conflict that the west ever won outright against communist forces. Longtime Surrey resident Bob Dominick was that young man and now, some 45 years later, the king and government of Malaysia have awarded the veterans of that conflict the Pingat Jasa Malaysia medal. The medal was presented to Dominick on Nov. 15 at the Malaysian Consulate in Vancouver by Hares Usot, the Malaysian Consul. The award recognizes veterans’ “distinguished chivalry, gallantry, sacrifice and loyalty in contributing to the freedom and independence of Malaysia.” The medal had to receive the royal approval of Queen Elizabeth and the British government before it could be presented to the veterans of the conflict. Dominick remembers the conflict well, as he was involved in special operations with units of the British SAS, the Royal Marine’s SBS and the legendary Gurkha Regiment. “One of the most fascinating things about this conflict was having the ability to learn jungle skills from the Dayak tribes in Borneo,” said Dominick. “For centuries these tribes had been notorious as headhunters, but all we

saw in them was a genuine respect for the help we were giving them to remain free in the jungles they had called home for some 3,000 years.” On his first tour of duty, he was away from home for two years and then returned to Borneo for a further 18 months. Dominick is President and CEO of Lightyear Digital Theatre, the Surrey corporation that earlier this year

Christmas Rose – a new holiday tradition? Hellebores can last for weeks indoors and make wonderful gifts
through March. If they were gently forced into bloom at slightly higher temperatures, they could provide a long lasting flowering plant that could be enjoyed indoors then set back out into the garden to be enjoyed for many years to come. Out of this research came the “Helleborus Gold Collection” which displayed many new characteristics. This collection all bloomed on first year plants if they were started at the right time. Second, they provided lots of blooms that produced over a long period of time, and third, the blossoms were all forward facing for a far more striking appearance. Some of the first varieties have now been on the market for a year or so, with many more about to be introduced this winter and next spring. Helleborus niger Jacob (Zone 4) has pure white flowers with a slight pink blush in cooler weather. I love their deep burgundy stems and the blossoms have a faint perfume, which makes them ideal as cut flowers. It is one of the earliest blooming hellebores and has the traditional glossy deep green foliage. Helleborus niger Joseph Lemper (Zone 4), one of the very earliest to bloom, has very large pure white blooms that appear slightly turned, facing upwards. As the blooms mature, they turn an attractive green. The foliage is very attractive, and a rich, dark green. Helleborus niger Pink Frost provides a nice variation with its
burgundy and white buds that burst open to a lovely soft pink which darkens with age. As the blooms open in sequence, beautiful shading, from white to pink and red, takes place. Even if it never bloomed, its scented deep green leaves, unique vein display and marbled sheen rivals any evergreen perennial. Some of the new varieties being released this year are
H. n. Cinnamon Snow (Zone 5), with its creamy white flowers touched with rose and cinnamon. The buds also have a red accent and as the blooms open, they create quite a show. The leaves are very scented and rich green, providing a nice contrast to the blooms. Helleborus n. Winter’s Bliss (Zone 4) has rosy buds opening to a creamy white with a delightful dark pink reverse. It’s quite com-
pact, but the leaves are fairly large and a very shiny dark green. Helleborus n. Silver Moon (Zone 4) produces creamy white flowers with a tinge of pink that ultimately changes to a beautiful dusty rose. Its habit is quite upright with lovely silver leaves held erect by rosy stems. Helleborus n. Winter’s Song has dark pink buds that open into classic ivory
blooms with a pink reverse. It’s quite a sprawler, with fairly large lance-shaped green leaves tinged with silver. Placed in attractive vases as cut flowers, or planted in wicker baskets or pots and kept reasonably cool (1215°C), hellebores will last for weeks indoors and can become a wonderful Christmas gift and new tradition. On very protected patios, they can stay
outside in full bloom and tolerate up to 8°C of frost without any harm. You are going to see the first major release of these new hellebores across the country this holiday season, so do watch for them in your favourite garden centre. Brian Minter is a master gardener who operates Minter Gardens in Chilliwack.

POINSETTIAS HAVE a long and interesting history, becoming the number-one indoor potted plant grown in the world today. The many new varieties and colors produced each year keep them at the forefront as a Christmas season plant. In the Northern Hemisphere, however, they are a very long crop for growers and require a great deal of labor and energy to produce. A huge amount of research and breeding work has been done to develop new varieties that can not only finish in cooler temperatures, but also be more durable to survive both indoors and out. For years now, I’ve been on a quest to find alternate cool season plants that could be an alternative to poinsettias and still have a connection to many of our Christmas traditions. The Christmas Rose, helleborus niger, is certainly one of the top candidates. Over the past few years, greenhouse growers have been refining their production timing and forcing them into bloom at slightly higher temperatures in order to have those beautiful helleborus blossoms open for the month of December. In Zones 6 and above this works well as an outdoor garden or patio container plant, but in Zones 5 and lower they need more protection. The challenge is to find a room cool enough for them to last indoors. In Europe, winterblooming hellebores have been very much a traditional Christmas gift for some time now. The Heuger family has been at the forefront of new breeding to develop better early winter blooming varieties that could be enjoyed over the holiday season. The concept was to develop a series of plants that would naturally bloom in progression from November

IT’S THE virtual gift that gives
back. With the click of a mouse, the BC SPCA’s Pawsitive Gifts program allows you to buy something special for the animal lover on your list this holiday season while at the same time help some of B.C.’s most vulnerable creatures. “You can help a dog, a cat, a horse or even a raccoon without ever leaving your house,” says Lise Brown, development officer for the BC SPCA. “Pawsitive Gifts are easy to buy, they appeal to all kinds of animal lovers and they don’t have the impact on the environment that more conventional commercial gifts do.” New this year, Pawsitive Gift options include an opportunity to support the work of the BC SPCA’s cruelty investigations team. Dubbed “Protect, Serve and Shelter,” this $50 gift goes directly toward the support for cruelty investigations, including enforcement of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, bringing animal abusers to justice and caring for hurt and neglected animals. The BC SPCA is a non-profit
The BC SPCA is non-proﬁt and does not receive any government funding to conduct nearly 6,000 new animal cruelty investigations a year. Pawsitive Gifts help fund the organization.
organization and does not receive any government funding to conduct nearly 6,000 new cruelty investigations a year. Other Pawsitive Gifts start at $10 and include puppy or dog care for a day, kitten and cat care for a day, horse care for a day, veterinary care of dogs and cats and even care for small, wild and farm animals.
“So you don’t even have to be a dog person or a cat person – you can be a cow person or an eagle person,” says Brown. Pawsitive Gifts are both ethical and economical, adds Brown. Donors who make secure online donations are issued tax receipts by email, which saves the BC SPCA the cost of producing and mailing tax
receipts, which means more resources can go directly to the animals. Donors can either choose to send a personalized electronic card to the gift’s recipient, or print a card that they can present to the recipient in person.
