Trying to exit Egypt

BATTLING

BACK

Surrey family caught in chaos by Jeff Nagel A SURREY family has been

caught up in the turmoil gripping Egypt as protesters try to topple the nation’s repressive dictator. Hassan El-Shaikh, his wife Mona and five-year-old son Karim were supposed to be safely back home in B.C. by now after a two-week trip to visit ailing parents. But thousands of citizens began marching the day before they were to leave – soon after Tunisians kicked out their own strongman – paralyzing air travel and forcing the family to stay in Alexandria. With dozens killed in the early and Ahmad clashes thousands Badawi wounded, friends and family have been frantic for information. “All the cellphones are totally down,” said Ahmad Badawi, El-Shaikh’s brother-in-law, a Burnaby film producer and director. “We’ve been trying to get through different ways, but it’s difficult.” The El-Shaikhs have lived in Canada almost seven years and are among 370 Surrey residents

EVAN SEAL / THE LEADER

FORMER U.S. presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush will be coming to Surrey as part of this year’s Surrey Regional Economic Summit. Mayor Dianne Watts announced Tuesday morning that the two will be keynote speakers at the annual fall event in Surrey, which in past years attracted the likes of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Watts said it was a bit of a Bill Clinton coup getting both speakers here for this year’s summit. “Both of them bring a unique who struck Mann. perspective to the Surrey RCMP Cpl.

roadside memorial for Harpreet Kaur Mann, who was struck and killed while walking home from her job at Kentucky Fried Chicken last Thursday about 11 p.m. A 2006 Toyota Corolla was travelling east on 80 Avenue at 122A Street when it struck Mann and a telephone pole. The 47-year-old female driver of the car received minor injuries and was treated in hospital. Firefighters performed CPR on Mann at the scene, but she died later in hospital.

The 37-year-old mother of two children, aged nine and 12, was generous to a fault, according to her husband Baljinder. Harpreet used to take her 12-yearold daughter to all her soccer games, refusing to miss even one. She was loved by many and is sorely missed, Baljinder said. “She was very helpful, very helpful. Somebody calls, she’d go right now, right now.” He said the loss is extremely hard for the family, as well as for all Mann’s friends and work colleagues. The family wants criminal charges pursued against the driver

Sledge: ‘It’s a thrill, there’s the rush of adrenaline...’ From Page 1 “It’s not about what you can’t do, it’s what you can do,” said Maj. Dougie Peter, commanding officer of the Battle Back program, during the group’s sledge hockey session Sunday afternoon. “It’s about realizing that there are still things they can do. Giving them the opportunity to expose them to this makes them realize what’s available to them.” The program is new, launched in 2008 by the British military. But the concept, said Peters, is not. “It began happening more than 60 years ago,” he said. “A suggestion during World War II was that service personnel with spinal cord injuries would benefit from sports such as horseback riding. So using sports isn’t a new concept.” But taking it to the level of Battle Back might be. The group’s 10-day stay included four days in Whistler for (cross-country) Nordic skiing and biathlon, and another day of alpine skiing, as well as some snowmobiling and dog sledding. And while sledge hockey was to be their last stop, the group managed to arrange a last-minute game of wheelchair curling yesterday (Tuesday) afternoon before departing for home. Their trip was coordinated by Sian Blyth, founder of You Can Event Management in Vancouver, and British

counterpart Larnie Meeking, a life skills coach specializing in assisting people with disabilities. “We got together, and brain-stormed a bit, and put together this winter sport experience,” said Blyth. The British contingent already had some ideas, some of them having been here a year ago to watch the Paralympic Games in Vancouver and Whistler. To the participants, their stay on the south coast of British Columbia was one they won’t soon forget, and eagerly want to experience again. “It was amazing... brilliant,” said Windrass of the winter activities. It was her first time cross-country skiing. The group was amazed at the skill level needed for sledge hockey. But soldiers are competitive by nature, and eager to learn. And while they had difficulty matching the speed of their Canadian counterparts, and their puck handling was lacking, their determination and competitive spirit was demonstrated through several collisions with opponents and teammates. “It’s a thrill, there’s the rush of adrenaline,” said Brown. “And the speed of the game... I’m on one of these (sleds) and it seems so uncontrollable. But these guys look so skillful. “And it’s definitely full contact, I can show you the bruises.”

10-year-old girl testifies in sex assault trial by Sheila Reynolds THE 10-YEAR-OLD Surrey girl who says she was raped in her own bedroom says she was awakened in the middle of the night last April by a man sitting on top of her. She said the person was white and was wearing a muscle shirt and hoodie and his jeans were off. She said she thought the man in her room that

night was Kyle Berkson, a friend of the family’s. “It sounded like him and it kind of looked like him,” the girl testified Friday in Surrey Provincial Court. Berkson, 36, is on trial on charges of breaking and entering with intent to commit sexual assault with a weapon, invitation to sexual touching, sexual interference and making threats. He’s

accused of breaking into a Guildford-area home and assaulting the thennine-year-old girl. The girl’s name cannot be published, nor can any information that could identify her. The child testified that the man whispered for her to be quiet and she complied because she was scared. He then sexually assaulted her, which the girl said made her feel

“very grossed out and scared.” On cross-examination, Berkson’s defence lawyer questioned the girl’s

uncertainty about the perpetrator’s appearance that night and that she told police at the time she wasn’t absolutely

their safety and the casualties of unrest, Badawi and millions of others with links to Egypt are optimistic they are witnessing a revolution that will end president Hosni Mubarak’s three-decade rule. “We are demanding our freedom,” he said. Before leaving Egypt four years ago, Badawi was a youth leader in

Hope, after the horror of war

RAESIDE

W

ith Canada’s casualties in Afghanistan standing at 153 (as of December 2010), there is no question that this country has made great sacrifices in striving to make the world a better place. In fact, the number of men and women who have been killed in this current conflict is greater than in any single Canadian military mission since the Korean War. Countless more soldiers have been wounded and maimed. But in addition to the Canadian Forces personnel on the front lines, this country is providing another valuable service for coalition troops: Hope, after the horror of war. Last week, seven British soldiers who were injured either in combat or during military training came to B.C. to learn a variety of winter sports as part of a program called Battle Back. The program is managed by Great Britain’s defence ministry and arranges sports opportunities for wounded service personnel to help with their rehabilitation. It was established in 2008 following the creation of similar initiatives in the U.S. (Wounded Warriors) and Canada (Soldier On). The U.K. soldiers – six men and one woman – were brought to B.C. and introduced to alpine and cross-country skiing, biathlon, snowmobiling, dog sledding and sledge hockey. And they had a blast. “It was amazing, brilliant,” said Cpl. Georgina Windrass of the winter activities. The sports, experienced amid the outdoor beauty of B.C. and the friendliness of its citizens, left a lasting impression on the wounded soldiers. “We’re having such a good time, and we’ve been so welcomed. We don’t want to go home,” said Royal Navy Chief Petty Officer Steve Brown. A reminder, perhaps, of a way of life worth fighting for.

have suggested FSA tests be replaced. Well, rookie cabinet minister Moira Stilwell has. For a more informed view, here’s Education Minister Margaret MacDiarmid in an open letter to parents: “The push by the BCTF to end the FSAs is political. It’s about hiding information you, as parents, have a right to know about your child’s education and future.” Leadership candidate George Abbott made vague noises about supplementing FSA tests. Here is one change he could consider. The tests measure reading, writing and arithmetic skills at Grades 4 and 7. They track the individual student’s performance, as well as that of the team of teachers he or she has had to that point. Additional measurements could give a clearer picture of the performance of each teacher. Then Falcon’s merit pay idea could be implemented.

These two bodies would accept complainants from an individual who might otherwise have been reluctant to complain to a police officer in a department’s internal affairs unit. Will the B.C. government move forward and affect the changes necessary to ensure the public interest in maintained? William Perry, Victoria

Well done, you moron PLEASE LET me be the first to get in

my nomination for Surrey’s 2011 Moron of the Year Award. Without a doubt it should go to the person who decided that 6 a.m. on a dark and rainy morning (Jan. 25) would be the ideal time to patch potholes on King George Boulevard just south of the Pattullo Bridge. Our winning moron managed to back traffic all the into Whalley and no doubt caused thousands of people to be late for appointments. It also, of course, freed up the road crew’s time during non-rush hours to work on little used cul-de-sacs and country roads. As person who has created a considerable number of screw ups myself over the years I can only express my awe at this person’s complete genius. It far surpassed anything I ever managed. Well done, whoever you are. Brian Martin, Surrey

that Surrey and other local governments should consider online voting. Letter writer Ms. Ryan seems to want a referendum on all sorts of issues in her letter published Jan. 20. By all accounts, this mayor and council has had more public input and discussion than any Surrey municipal government in memory. There is no question that referenda can be a very effective method of voter participation under the right circumstances but elections come only once every three years. This council has worked hard to solicit input from the public on an ongoing basis

for such issues as public transit, infrastructure development, parks and other funding priorities. With respect to the issue of Bear Creek Park and the extension of 84 Avenue, let’s get the facts straight. It was Bob Bose (SCC), chair of the transportation committee who brought the issue of extending a road through Bear Creek Park, not the mayor and Surrey First. In fact the mayor has been on record for years in opposition to the extension of 84 Avenue. For Ms. Ryan to now try and say it was SCC who led the opposition to this is simply not true. When Coun. Bose and the

transportation committee brought the issue to council there was indeed vocal opposition to it including the mayor and a majority of councilors. The issue clearly didn’t need a referendum to decide the proper course of action. We do need to get more participation in local government and looking at the idea of online voting is a progressive step in that direction. Calling for a referendum on everything from road extensions to TransLink, while distorting the facts for political gain, only pushes more people away.

Public places: To smoke or not to smoke? THE PROPOSED smoking ban in Sur-

rey parks and beaches is way overdue. Beyond the fact science has proven smoking is not beneficial to anyone’s health, including the smoker, our climate change has shown over the last decade the ground, parks and gardens becoming parched must faster as soon as the sun appears. Smoking bans in the summer will become the norm. Listening to any attempt to rationalize smoking is a waste of time. To listen to someone who smokes, who knowingly is hurting themselves and the people around them when they light up, does not make sense. There can be no credibility in their argument. Parks are used for sports, a healthy alternative to smoking. They act as shelter for wildlife, which is disappearing. Public spaces are there for the enjoyment of everyone, not just the minority smoker. I smoked and I am happy to have not smoked for seven years. I admit I was selfish. It was my generation. It is the new norm to not smoke. Smoking is bad. We have all the evidence. We need our parks green

and healthy. The city has failed us to protect the trees on private land. All new houses are now treeless, paved all around the cars. The time is now to listen to the people for once. Ban smoking in all parks. Paul Fitzgerald, Cloverdale

I AM writing in reference to the culture committee’s proposed ban on smoking in outdoor venues in Surrey. I question this secondary to the rights of all people to enjoy Surrey’s parks and beaches. It is my position that the amount of second-hand smoke is immeasurable and tobacco is a legal product. Council is supposed to fairly represent the rights of all citizens, not just the favoured few. I am active and a non-smoker, but I believe in the rights of all people to enjoy parks and beaches without restrictions. I know people complain about second-hand smoke and butts on the ground. That could be solved by providing more receptacle for smokers. Or a compromise could be a smoking area set aside where people could smoke. Before council thoughtlessly takes away the rights of people, how about doing an air quality study to see what the level of pollutants are? You will find that there are more toxic risks inside buildings than at a beach or park with smokers. An outdoor ban is nothing more than a money grab and a further encroachment on citizen rights. In other words, we the people do not want a “nanny state.” I would also challenge Surrey’s right to pass these laws. Where does the authority to do this come from? If council wants to do something useful, here is a short list: Surrey needs more schools, road repair, a living wage law, a standard-of-maintenance law for landlords to follow, so tenants can keep landlords accountable and not run tenement slums. Citizens elected council to do the business of the city. We did not elect them to micro-manage our lives. David Campbell, Surrey

Teachers’ union fears comparison Devalue the dollar

THERE IS really just one reason

for the ongoing controversy over the Foundation Skills Assessment (FSA). It is that the teachers’ union is opposed to the use – by any organization or individual – of any school-level student assessment results to publicly rate schools. My reading of the 13-year history of the FSA and the public statements and actions of union officials during this period supports this suggestion. Why does the union object to this use of student assessment results? It does so because such ratings enable anyone to compare schools on a student performance measure that might be construed to reflect on the effectiveness of its union members. There is, therefore, one critical question that should be asked and debated before any action is taken regarding the FSA: As a society, do

we believe that the public should be able to compare schools that are funded in whole or in part by taxpayers on the basis of student performance data of any kind? I believe the teachers’ union would answer in the negative. But if, the union were to surprise me

and respond in the positive, then we need a thorough public discussion of this question.

Two cents’ worth RE: “A PENNY still has value,” Leader Letters, Jan. 21.

Mr. Bruna Fenger’s story is the same as when the half penny was eliminated and some of his excuses to keep pennies in circulation are ridiculous. Many European countries have eliminated the penny and now round everything of up or down to five cents. It does not make buyers lose anything. As for gasoline purchases which are advertised mostly at .009 cents such should be outlawed as this is only to make the price look lower as do prices ending in .99 cents. Hopefully our government will soon be smart enough to stop producing pennies as they cost more to make than they are worth especially with the present price of copper. Pieter Spierenburg, Surrey

RE: “A PENNY still has value.”

In around the 1950s, faced with similar massive devaluation of the franc, the French sensibly minted new francs worth 100 old ones. We should do the same here with the dollar. The new penny would then be worth an old dollar. Half-penny coins might again prove useful enough to mint, and shin plasters (25 cent bills) could be revived. Even with a hundredfold increase, the Canadian dollar would likely still not regain its full initial value. My mother worked for 50 cents a day in the 1930s. Don DeMille

rizing – not to mention the tireless fundraising – is consuming an enormous amount of their time and energy. But the goal, a trip to the United Nations in New York, is what’s keeping kids at Roots & Wings Montessori motivated. The group of nine- to 14-year-olds are heading to the Big Apple in April to participate in The Montessori Model United Nations, a program developed for students to learn the work of the UN by actually participating in it. Students from around the world are assigned a country for the mock UN and become ambassadors for that country. The Grade 4-7 classmates from Roots & Wings are divided into two groups, one representing the Philippines and one Zimbabwe. “When we go into the UN, we have to know everything about our countries,” says student Maxime Labrecque. The kids have also been studying up on other cultures, religions, societies and peoples throughout the world. “We had to memorize 195 countries,” says 11-year-old Kyro Plaviak. And they’ve identified a lengthy list of problems facing the world, such as poverty, disease and terrorism. “And the mistreatment of women and children,” adds 12-year-old Amy Rudman. Sumrit Sanghera, 12, said it was initially disheartening and a little overwhelming to look at the many world problems, but he and his classmates understand that even small steps can instigate change. The kids will participate in smaller discussion groups and any potential solutions the youth come up with will be sent to the actual UN secretary general to take into consideration. “It’s pretty stunning that a group of kids can make a

The trip is planned for April 13-22 and will also include an excursion to Washington, DC. Kids and parents at the school have been fundraising for months, baking and selling muffins to local businesses, holding an online auction, selling toys and books, holding bottle drives and a movie night.

An explosive lesson $ $10,000 worth of damage from gassing up in home

by Kevin Diakiw AT A 5,000-SQ.-FT. Cedar Hills

home last Wednesday, a Surrey businessman decided to gas up his pressure washer. He chose to do that inside the house, right beside the furnace. The result, given careful thought, might have been predicted. As soon as he started pouring gasoline into the machine, gas fumes filled the air around him. Those flammable vapours made their way to the pilot light on the furnace. In an instant, the gas can he was carrying turned into a huge fireball.

He ran outside, gas can in hand, and threw the burning canister as far as he could. It landed near the rear side of his late model Corvette, which also began to burn. The man suffered first-degree burns to his arm. The back end of the Corvette was completely melted. And the home experienced about $10,000 worth of damage. Surrey’s Deputy Fire Chief Jon Caviglia said Thursday it just serves as another example of why gasoline should never be brought into the home. Every so often, “usually with drastic consequences,” Surrey firefighters attend a blaze that’s a

result of someone using gasoline indoors. Sometimes people bring gas into the house to wash oil off surfaces or to clean the floor, then the gas finds a source of ignition. “Usually there’s a large explosion,” Caviglia said, adding the latest case is an unfortunate example of why it shouldn’t be done. “It’s a good reminder for people not to bring gas inside their house,” Caviglia said, adding accelerants of any type don’t belong in the home. “They’re very explosive.” It’s unclear whether the man was insured for such an incident.

Surrey Eagles stage fundraiser at BCHL game by Nick Greenizan A BC HOCKEY League

game Jan. 23 between the Surrey Eagles and Langley Chiefs was more than just a battle for second place in the standings – it was an opportunity to raise money for the Alexa’s Bus initiative, which aims to help police keep drunk drivers off the roads. Through a raffle, 50/50, game tickets and the sale of purple bracelets, $3,800 was raised at South Surrey Arena on Sunday. Local Scotiabank branches donated $3,000 as well, bringing the total raised to $6,800. The Alexa’s Bus program is in honour of Alexa Middelaer, the four-year-old girl who, in 2008, was struck by a drunk driver and killed while feeding a horse

Nico Docolas (left) and Laurel Middelaer (centre) put a purple bracelet – in honour of Laurel’s daughter, Alexa, who was killed by a drunk driver in 2008 – on the wrist of Cayla Smith during Surrey Eagles game. at the side of a Ladner road. Carol Berner was convicted last summer of two counts of dangerous driving causing death and bodily harm, and two counts of impaired

driving causing death in connection with the tragedy. Sentenced to two-and-a-half years in jail, Berner is appealing the decision, and is currently living in Delta after being granted bail last November.

The funds raised Jan. 23 will help purchase four mobile investigation units, which will aid police in impaireddriving investigations. “If we can obtain these buses, our police will be fully equipped to investigate the complex accident scenes in which alcohol has been a factor,” said Laurel Middelaer, Alexa’s mother and a principal at Southridge School in South Surrey. “As a result, the cost of pursuing charges against drunk drivers will be greatly reduced, and – most importantly – many, many lives will be saved.” In addition to the purple bracelets – purple was Alexa’s favourite colour – worn by many of the 1,200 spectators in attendance, Surrey Eagles players also used purple stick tape in the game.

Surrey plans to cut greenhouse gases in half by Kevin Diakiw

piped into buildings to reduce the reliance on conventional heating. In addition, waste heat from high energy users, such as ice rinks, pools and industrial customers can be recaptured and easily redistributed to other users in the system. The city is also exploring the possibility of establishing DE systems near the Gateway and King George SkyTrain stations, as well as Grandview Heights and Campbell Heights areas, due to the current and future plans for industrial, commercial and highdensity residential development in these areas. It comes just months after a commitment by council to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) in this city. In 2008, Surrey signed on to the B.C.

THE CITY of Surrey is creating an area of high-efficiency energy in the downtown core. The announcement comes on the heels of the city’s commitment to become carbon neutral by 2012. The city will establish a municipally owned district energy (DE) system in order to reduce the consumption of greenhouse gases. The first system will be built in City Centre under the new city hall using ground source heat exchange as the primary energy supply. It will distribute energy in the form of hot water, which will allow for additional renewable energy sources to be used in the future. The process uses pipes deep underground, where water is heated by earth energy and then

Climate Action Plan which signified this city’s intention to significantly cut GHGs by 2012. Being a part of that also signified Surrey would measure and report its emissions and create complete, compact, more energy efficient communities. Under the agreement, solid waste facilities are not included in the carbon count. In 2009, Surrey consumed a total of 417,079 GJ of energy and emitted 15,225 tonnes of GHGs. Of those emissions, nine per cent was electricity use, natural gas accounted for 47 per cent and fuel consumed by the city’s fleet was 44 per cent. The total energy expenditure in 2009 was just over $10 million. Some of the other steps the city is taking include:

• Developing policies related to building use, and incorporating alternative energy systems where feasible. • “Right sizingâ€? the city’s vehicle fleet and analyzing the cost benefits of alternative fuels. • Initiating green purchasing policies and practices. • Implementing and publicizing green infrastructure pilot projects. • Committing to the Climate Change Action Plan. The Climate Action Charter is a voluntary agreement between municipalities and the province. Surrey is also eligible for carbon credits from the province, based on how much GHGs are emitted. Based on 2009 levels of carbon emissions, Surrey would receive a $416,200 rebate in 2012.

$15-million fundraising goal reached Black Press MORE THAN 10,600 donors have

helped to make Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation’s largest ever fundraising effort a success. The Emergency Centre Campaign is now concluding with enough pledges to reach the Foundation’s $15 million goal. While the Foundation’s work on this campaign is wrapping up, some donors will continue to actively fundraise in support of their individual goals. “I can’t say enough about the community’s support,” said Emergency Centre Campaign Chair Chris Midmore. “By the time all pledges have been fully paid, we may very well have surpassed our ambitious target.” The Emergency Centre Campaign has been raising money in support of a new emergency department and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), both of which are key elements of the Critical Care Tower project. The new emergency centre is scheduled to open at Surrey Memorial Hospital in 2013, while the rest of the tower – including the new NICU – is expected to open in 2014. “This is yet another example of how residents, businesses, and

An artist’s rendering of the new critical care tower for Surrey, which will feature an emergency centre that is three times the size of the current ER, which is the busiest emergency room in B.C. community groups consistently come together to support the hospital,” said Emergency Centre Campaign Honorary Chair Herb Dhaliwal. “They will be rewarded with spectacular new facilities equipped with state-of-the-art technology.” Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation will announce in the coming weeks a new campaign to purchase equipment that will help attract new doctors to Surrey.

“Surrey is competing provincially and nationally for doctors,” noted Foundation President and CEO Jane Adams. “Our next campaign will assist recruitment efforts by providing the right tools for specialists who come here.” Established in 1992, Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation has raised more than $55 million to purchase medical equipment, fund innovative programs, and support training and research.

Panel to compare current and former taxes by Tom Fletcher JIM DINNING admits that it’s

ironic for a former Alberta finance minister to be asked to weigh the merits of B.C.’s two choices for sales taxes. But now out of politics and serving as chancellor of the University of Calgary, Dinning is chairing an independent review panel to compare the Harmonized Sales Tax with B.C.’s former Provincial Sales Tax before a referendum on the HST later this year. Also named to the panel are former B.C. auditor-general George Morfitt, Simon Fraser University professor John Richards and Tracie Redies, CEO of Coast Capital Savings. Their report is due April 1, and will make no recommendation on either the HST or the PST, Dinning told Black Press. “Polling showed that people don’t feel they have all the facts they need, and they’re looking for an independent source rather than just the government information source,” he said. The Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation is making a recommendation to voters: keep the HST and demand a lower rate to reflect the broader base of the new sales tax. Gregory Thomas, the CTF’s communications director for B.C., says voting “no” in the referendum would kill off the

Former Alberta finance minister Jim Dinning, now chancellor of the University of Calgary, is chairing a panel to compare B.C.’s old and new sales taxes before a referendum that could be held as early as June. “63-year-old relic” of the PST. He argues that the federal government reduced the Goods and Services Tax from seven to five per cent, and B.C. could do the same. “Here in B.C. the government could have introduced the HST at a lower rate,” Thomas said. “Instead they chose to create an expensive and confusing rat’s maze of exemptions, credits and loopholes for special interests, and pay for it by charging ordinary taxpayers an exorbitant seven-per-cent HST rate.” Thomas noted that if the HST

rate were lowered, credits paid to a million low-income B.C. residents would also come down. For special interests, he cited home builders, who benefit from HST credits and also successfully lobbied the province to raise the exemption for new home construction to $525,000. Resale housing is not subject to HST. The B.C. government also launched a new website at www. hstinbc.ca to offer videos and answers to frequently asked questions about the change from PST to GST.

MacPhail endorses Dix Former cabinet minister backs MLA for NDP leadership

Surrey company must pay tree planters by Sheila Reynolds MORE THAN two-dozen tree planters employed by Surrey-based Khaira Enterprises will be paid $225,000 in unpaid wages. The B.C. Employment Standards Branch ordered the company to pay the workers after an investigation that began last summer following claims Khaira failed to properly feed or house the workers and their pay cheques bounced.

by Tom Fletcher SAYING HE HAS the same

“focused and feisty dedication” she brought to politics, former B.C. finance and health minister Joy MacPhail has endorsed Vancouver-Kingsway MLA Adrian Dix to lead the NDP. MacPhail said Dix’s work as children and families and then health critic since 2005 has been “head and shoulders” above other MLAs. She said Dix has demonstrated the energy that she needed when the party was reduced to two seats by the 2001 landslide victory of Premier Gordon Campbell. “He and Carole James were a very effective team,” MacPhail said. “I miss Carole James terribly, but with the advent of Adrian’s leadership I am comforted.” Dix stressed his support from health care workers, whose union contracts were an early target of the Campbell government. “When I talked to people in the Okanagan this week, especially health care workers reminded me of the extraordinary courage and determination Joy showed on their behalf as leader of the opposition in B.C., as she brought the NDP back from maybe our lowest moment

$225K in unpaid wages The landed immigrant workers, most from the Congo and Burundi, were employed at Bluewater Creek, 40 kilometres west of Golden, B.C. The camp was discovered by forestry ministry staff who were investigating reports of illegal burning. When they discovered the workers had no money, no transportation and were unable to leave the remote location, the RCMP was called in and the camp was shut down July 21. – with files from CTV

MacPhail said she isn’t concerned about complaints from rival candidates Mike Farnworth and Harry Lali about thousands of new party memberships and cash donations brought in at the deadline for the April 17 leadership vote. After MacPhail lost the party leadership to Ujjal Dosanjh in 2000, the party put in rigorous rules that will verify every membership, she said. MacPhail quit as B.C.’s finance

minister in 1999 because she didn’t agree with then-premier Glen Clark’s plan to spend his way out of an economic slump. Dix was Clark’s chief of staff at that time, and despite their policy disagreements he always treated her respectfully, MacPhail said. She added that history has shown that she was wrong about the Clark government’s approach, which led to an economic recovery that benefited Campbell’s government in the following years.

The first goal is having fun.

the Surrey Eagles finally leapfrogged the Langley Chiefs into second place in the BC Hockey League’s Coastal Conference. With that task accomplished, the Junior A squad went to work last weekend putting some distance between themselves and their Lower Mainland rivals. The Eagles won three straight over the weekend – including two against the Merritt Centennials, 4-1 Friday at South Surrey Arena and 7-2 Saturday night at the Cents’ Nicola Valley Arena. On Sunday, Surrey showed little sign of fatigue despite travelling home from Merritt the night before, beating the visiting Cowichan Valley Capitals 5-1. “It was obviously a good weekend. We executed in all areas and were able to get three wins,” Eagles coach Matt Erhart said. “We continued our good defensive streak, and outscored (the opposition) 16-4. Anytime you can do that, you’re going to be happy with your weekend.” With just nine games to go before playoffs, Erhart was also pleased to open up a five-point gap on the Chiefs, who have just five games remaining. The first-place Powell River Kings still hold a 14-point lead over

the Eagles and are just a few wins away from clinching the division title. “At about the 20-game mark our goal as a team has been second place in the conference. We’ve been playing well and we control our own destiny now – if we want to stay in second place, we just have to worry about our own games and we don’t have to scoreboard watch (other games),” said Erhart. “And the little bit of a cush-

“We executed in all areas and were able to get three wins.” Matt Erhart ion (on Langley) is nice, too.” Karel St. Laurent was between the pipes Friday, stopping 25 shots en route to his first shutout of the season; on Sunday, he turned away 29 of 30 shots. “It’s nice to see him get the shutout. Karel had two starts at home before that game where he probably deserved to get one,” Erhart said. Rookie backup Andrew Hunt took over in Merritt Saturday, between St. Laurent’s appearances, and helped his team to a

7-0 lead until the Cents potted a pair of late goals – the first coming with two minutes left in the second period, and the second with seven minutes left in the third. On Friday, forwards Robert Lindores and Jeff Vanderlugt each had a goal and two assists, with linemate Michael Stenerson also chipping in with one helper. “That line – Vanderlugt, Stenerson and Lindores – really carried us Friday,” Erhart said. “They really stepped up and, five-on-five, were probably our best line all night.” Beau Orser and defenceman Linden Saip also scored for the Eagles. In Saturday’s seven-goal outburst, six Eagles scored, with blue-liner Mitch Jones leading the way with a pair. Brad McGowan – the BCHL’s leading point-getting with 81 – had a goal and an assist, and added three more helpers against the Capitals. McGowan’s three assists aside, Daniel Gentzler was the star Sunday, potting a hat-trick, with Vanderlugt and Brandon Morley also finding the back of the net. The Eagles will be in Coquitlam tonight to face the Express, then are at home tomorrow (Thursday), hosting Powell River 7 p.m. in the South Surrey Arena.

Overtime loss for Devils North Delta slips to fourth by Rick Kupchuk THE SLIDE down the

Pacific Coast International Hockey League standings continues for the North Delta Devils. The Junior B team did earn a point Saturday night at the Sungod Arena, going to overtime before losing 2-1 to the Port Moody Black Panthers. Trevor Kang, who wore the red, black and white Devils jersey last season, tallied the winning goal in extra time with an unassisted effort four minutes in. Christian Rodriguez scored the lone goal for the home team, netting his sixth of the season with less than six minutes left in the second period, a powerplay goal assisted by Darren Ascuncion and Taylan Kornelsen which tied the contest 1-1. The Black Panthers dominated play for

much of the game, outshooting North Delta 51-29, and had a 6-1 shots on goal advantage in the four minutes of overtime. Alex Ahnert kept the Devils in the game, making 44 of 45 saves in regulation time and earning the game’s first star honour. The loss dropped North Delta to 21-15-5 (won-lostovertime loss) on the season, and a point back of the third place Grandview Steelers in the Tom Shaw Conference standings. After collecting 19 wins in their first 28 games, the Devils are just 2-8-3 in their past 13. North Delta played a rematch against the Black Panthers last night (Tuesday) in Port Moody, then will travel to Squamish Saturday night for a contest with the 6-30-4 Wolf Pack. sports@surreyleader.com

BC Seniors Games

She’s ba-a-a-ck! The sensational Mystic Maiden made her first start as a 4-year-old Sunday at Fraser Downs and served notice that 2011 could be every bit as profitable as 2010. A 15-time winner in 17 starts during the 2010 campaign, Mystic Maiden was driven for the first time by Jim Marino and captured the $12,500 Fillies & Mares Open in a final time of 1:54.4. It was a tune-up for the Miss Valentine Stakes on Feb. 13 and the reason trainer Justin Currie went to Marino instead of regular driver Dave Hudon was simple: Hudon will have one of his own horses entered in the Miss Valentine. Between now and then, Marino could get another shot at driving Mystic Maiden. The winner’s share of the $12,500 purse Sunday pushed Mystic Maiden’s lifetime earnings to over $172,000. While Mystic Maiden has developed quite a following at The Downs she wasn’t the only performer that was creating a buzz Sunday afternoon. Scott Knight scored earlier victories driving Red Star Striper and Greek Beach, then capped things off by winning the $35,000 Mr. Vancouver with Spartan Law. Knight never left the rail for the entire journey and was able to shoot up the passing lane in the late going to defeat heavilyfavoured Nobody Can in a picture finish. It was Spartan Law’s first win in 2011 (sixth lifetime) and pushed his career earnings to over $40,000. No surprises in the $15,500 Final of the Miss Onager claiming series with Multiflora Hanover (3-5) responding to hot driver Brandon Campbell as he put her on the lead from Post 2 and never looked back. Multiflora Hanover has now recorded three wins in 2011 for owners Kelly Hoerdt and Blair Corbeil of Alberta. Hoerdt sent out some serious talent on Saturday with three winners: Light The Board, Total Rhythm and Saatog Sonic May. EARLY START SUPER BOWL SUNDAY While the regular schedule resumes this weekend with Friday night (7:00) and Saturday (1:15 p.m.), starts, remember that Super Bowl Sunday (Feb. 6) will mean an early start at Fraser Downs at 10:15 a.m. This will enable harness racing fans to join us in the Clubhouse for prizes and food specials while we present the ultimate battle for the Vince Lombardi Trophy on gigantic 17-foot screens. Who do you like: Pittsburgh or Green Bay? Enjoy the best of both worlds on Sunday: another exciting standardbred card beginning at 10:15 a.m. followed by a Super Bowl party in the Clubhouse throughout the afternoon. 17755 60th Avenue Surrey BC

Public Information Notice

Highway 99 Northbound Shoulder Bus Lane The Ministry of Transportation & Infrastructure is starting a bridge widening project on Highway 99 northbound at the Serpentine River Bridge. These improvements are part of the Shoulder Bus Lane Project currently underway on Highway 99 that will increase transit capacity, reliability and efficiency for Highway 99. This project will see the bridge widened to accommodate a 4 metre shoulder bus lane on the east side of the structure. During construction there will be a speed limit reduction along this corridor to 60 kilometres per hour on the approaches and exits of the bridge. In addition, there will be slight changes in the alignment of the highway in this area to allow for construction activities. Once implemented, the speed limit reduction is anticipated to be in effect 24 hours a day until project completion. This work is planned to begin mid January and should be completed by spring 2011. For more information please contact Project Manager David Mintak at 604 660-8211 or by e-mail at David.Mintak@gov.bc.ca

Tina Snel (far left) poses with her 18-month-old daugher Madelyn. The photo was taken by Melissa DePape, who runs The Tiny Light Foundation, which provides free family portraits of children with special needs – including DePape’s own daughter, Nevaeh (holding an umbrella).

Capturing special moments A mom offers photo studio time to families and children in life-altering situations by Boaz Joseph

A

toddler’s life is busy these days, what with blocks that need to be rearranged and everyday objects that must be transformed into telephones and put up to the ear and talked to, just like mom’s BlackBerry. Madelyn, this particular toddler, giggles in her mother Tina Snel’s arms as she’s picked up – even though TV’s Elmo has just been interrupted. Madelyn’s playful smile beams as Tina fiddles with Madelyn’s pink top, lifting it to reveal a long scar across her chest. At 18 months old, Madelyn weighs 18 pounds, several short of normal weight for a girl her age. Madelyn has Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, a rare and life-threatening congeniDayton tal heart defect. “The left side of the heart didn’t develop properly, so instead of having four heart chambers, she only has one,” says her mom, who lives with her three kids in North Surrey. Madelyn has had two surgeries already, and a third will take place when she’s three or four; a heart transplant might be needed when Madelyn is in her teens. Cognitively, she’s like other kids her age, but a stressed heart and lots of hospital visits mean that Madelyn will likely always be physically behind her peers. One of her best friends is nine-year-old

autistic brother Dayton. “Dayton is amazing with her, it’s like they have this connection and special bond. Every time she sees him, it’s like, ‘Hiiiiii, Daaaaay!’ ” They also play together – Dayton is particularly fond of Thomas the Tank Engine – and, as happened a few weeks ago, the siblings have spent time in front of the camera at a local photo studio. The pictures were taken for free, courtesy of Chilliwack photographer Melissa DePape and The Tiny Light Foundation, which provides professional photography for families and children faced with life-altering diagnoses. Dayton was the only one booked for photos, but Madelyn was easily included once the two moms got to talking. DePape, the mother of a threeyear-old girl with Down Syndrome – Nevaeh, Heaven spelled backwards – started Tiny Light in December, doing photo shoots and vetting professional photographers across the country who have experience working with children and who could volunteer their time. The photography studios – as far away as Halifax – are listed on the foundation’s website. Tina heard about the service through a “heart mom” friend on Facebook. “I looked it up and thought this is really neat because they take kids of all disabilities. I emailed them and they emailed back right away. I would recommend them to everybody.” The half-hour session in a Surrey photo studio, she says, was awesome. “I don’t know any other word to use. Melissa was great with both the kids. She basically

said, ‘Let them do what they want’. ” The big treat for Tina was that, unlike snapshots at home, she got pictures of Dayton with his eyes open, looking at the camera. DePape says about 25 photo shoots have been booked or are being processed. Most of the photo requests have come from the Maple Ridge area – she can’t explain why. While the foundation isn’t asking for money, it is seeking printing shops to save money for families, and maybe a lawyer who could help set it up as a non-profit society. Tina is grateful just for the photos she got from Tiny Light. “You spend so much time and energy on your children because they’re sick – you have all these doctors’ appointments and all these other things to worry about – getting family pictures done is the last thing on your mind.” For more information, visit www. thetinylight.com bjoseph@surreyleader.com

Westcoast Harmony Chorus raises funds through its St. Valentine’s Day musical messages by Mario Bartel TRUDY ZONNEVELD has seen

people react with glee, bewilderment, shock and even embarrassment to her singing. But she never thought it would help her get out of a speeding ticket. Zonneveld is a member of the Westcoast Harmony Chorus, and every Valentine’s Day for the past 22 or 23 years, about half the group is divided into quartets to deliver musical messages of love and devotion all across Metro Vancouver. The singing telegrams are the group’s major annual fundraiser to help cover the costs of coaching, music and costumes. It was while running late to one of those appointments when Zonneveld’s quartet was pulled over for exceeding the speed limit in a ool school e. zone. As the ver driver wass

explaining their situation to the officer the group broke into song. Bemused and delighted, the officer even called over his partner to share the show. The quartet got off with a warning. Over the years the quartets have performed in classrooms, construction sites, a high school gym class, the wrestling room at Simon Fraser University, offices, private homes, hospitals, beside train tracks, even a wrecking yard. One group delivered a particularly moving Valentine to a patient in palliative care. He could no longer eat, so he couldn’t enjoy chocolates, explains Jackie Baron, and flowers would likely outlast him; a singing love message was the best way his partner could think of showing him her gratitude for all their years together. While every member of the chorus is an accomplished singer, each of the Valentine’s quartets

must audition to ensure their harmonies mesh. “We pride ourselves that when we sing to you, we sound good,” says Zonneveld. Recipients also receive a rose, a chocolate treat and a personal message from their beloved. A singing Valentine costs $50. It can also be delivered by phone for $25. The quartets are on the road on Feb. 14 from 7 a.m. to as late as 11:30 p.m., from West Vancouver to Abbotsford. They’re dispatched from a central “war room” that coordinates the bookings to keep the driving as efficient as possible; a quartet can deliver as many as 25-30 Valentines. “It’s so fun and hilarious,” says Zonneveld. “It’s a joy.” To make a booking, right up until Feb. 14, call 604-507-1432 or email Shayna. Steeves@ mod space. com

Applicants must be either a Surrey-based business or a member of the Surrey Board of Trade. The winner will be announced at the International Trade Dinner (see other side).

Nominations can be submitted by fax to 604.588.7549, by email to brianne@businessinsurrey.com or by mail to: Surrey Board of Trade #101, 14439 104th Ave. Surrey, B.C. V3R 1M1. Attn: Brianne Colbert/International Trade Awards MARIO BARTEL / BLACK PRESS

Trudy Zonneveld, Irene Ingraham, Jackie Baron and Carol Argue are four members of the Westcoast Harmony Chorus who will deliver singing Valentines around Metro Vancouver on Feb. 14.

KLASSEN, Ruth T. (nee Rempel) Nov. 27, 1933 – Jan. 21, 2011 Passed away peacefully at age 77 in the arms of her husband Frank and son Frank Jr. in Minoru Residence. Ruth was born in Yarrow, BC, the eldest daughter of Aron and Olga Rempel. Her childhood was not an easy one, caring for her eight siblings and helping on the raspberry farm. Her life was further complicated by excruciating migraines which she suffered daily from her mid-teens until a few years before her passing. Despite the chronic pain, her musical talents and remarkable intelligence were among the many gifts she demonstrated throughout her life. Ruth was an accomplished pianist and music teacher. She was also renowned for an astounding memory - remembering as many as 400 birthdays, anniversaries and special occasions a year to send out thousands of cards, letters and gifts to family, friends and even strangers to lift their spirits. Ruth was a devoted Christian - her favourite Bible chapter was John 14. She married Frank Klassen Sr. On Oct. 31, 1953 in Yarrow Mennonite Brethren Church. In the following years, Ruth became a loving mother to Frank, Cynthia, Lorne and Jeff, along with her subsequent daughter-in-laws Karen, Wendy/Rose & Kate; grandchildren Kaila (& Kevin), Kelsey, Philip (& Lian), Elise and Aaron; and great-granddaughter Ava. During the family’s darkest times, Ruth appreciated the love and support of sisters Edith (& Bob) Simpson, Ollie (& Bob) Peters and Charlotte (& Art) Shier. Her body was donated to UBC for scientific research into migraines and Lewy Body Dementia in hopes of finding a cure for these brain disorders. The family would like to thank the dedicated caregivers at Minoru Residence, who made her final months comfortable ones. A celebration of life will take place at the Richmond Bethel Church, 10200 No. 5 Road, Richmond on Saturday, Feb. 5 at 2 pm. A reception will follow. Memorial gifts can be made to the Gideons International in Canada or Alzheimer Society of BC.

Individuals, community groups, and businesses have helped make the largest campaign in the Foundation’s history a success. Every generous gift has contributed to the overall goal. In the coming weeks, Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation will announce a new campaign to provide the equipment and technology needed to attract new specialists and keep them here. We hope to count on your ongoing support.
