New school year, same classroom crunch With constant population growth, Surrey’s need for school space is ongoing by Sheila Reynolds AS STUDENTS and teachers bid farewell to summer holidays and

headed back to class this week, Surrey defies the provincial trend of declining school enrolment. While most school districts are dealing with lower student numbers, Surrey, the largest district in B.C., continues to grow. Nearly 1,200 new students are expected next week, bringing total enrolment in local public schools to upwards of 67,700. But with the influx of students comes a need for more school

space. There are currently 99 elementary and 19 high schools. And at many schools, there is the addition of numerous portables to handle the overflow of students. In some booming neighbourhoods, like the Clayton area of Cloverdale, brand new schools open with portables already on site. NDP Leader Carole James stopped in Surrey last week to highlight the number of portables currently in use in the school district. This fall there will be 232 portables on Surrey school grounds, up

more than 40 km/h over the limit may have their vehicles impounded for a week under new enforcement rules that kick in Sept. 20. Solicitor General Mike de Jong said the province is aiming to save lives by taking some of the most dangerous speeders off the road. “Excessive speed is often a death sentence for everyone involved – the driver, their passengers and other innocent road-users,” he said. Police write 10,000 tickets a year for excessive speeding, which carry fines of $368 to $483, three Mike de Jong ICBC penalty points and an ICBC driver-risk premium of $320 per year for three years over and above regular insurance rates. But as of Sept. 20, a charge of excessive speeding will also trigger a mandatory seven-day impoundment for a first offence, a 30-day impoundment for a second offence and 60 days for subsequent excessive speeding offences within two years. “Speed is the number-one contributing factor to fatalities in car accidents in the province,” See DRIVERS / Page 3

Drivers: Reminded to slow in school zones From page 1 said Cpl. Jamie Chung of Langley RCMP E Division Traffic Services. “The faster you go, the less likely you’ll walk away from a crash. Anything we can do to reduce speed in turn reduces the number of needless tragedies on our roads and highways.” The new rules may also lead to longer impoundment of street racers’ cars, officials said, noting the previous minimum impoundment for street racing was 48 hours. Motorists on Highway 1 are also being cautioned to observe the new construction speed limits from Langley to Vancouver, where the Port Mann Bridge construction and freeway widening project continues. The limit is 70 km/h from the Cassiar Tunnel to Grandview Highway in Burnaby and then 80 km/h to 208 Street in Langley. There are also significant recent traffic pattern changes near the Willingdon exit in Burnaby and at the 152 Street interchange in Surrey. For details, see www.pmh1project.com. With children returning to school, drivers are also being cautioned to practice safe driving habits and watch out for school zones. Every year in B.C., there’s an average of 16,655 crashes, 5,350 injuries and 36 deaths involving children. “We really need drivers to do their part, slow down and watch out for kids,” Chung said. “Police will be out in full force, monitoring the 30 km/h school zones throughout the province to make sure that kids get off to a safe start this school year.”

Following is an edited transcript:

BLACK PRESS

B.C. Education Minister Margaret MacDiarmid at her Victoria office Sept. 1.

TF: There’s a lot of interest in the full-day kindergarten program starting this year. Is it more popular than you expected? MM: It’s very popular. We’ve had incredibly positive feedback from parents, teachers are very excited, principals are excited. I think people are aware that full-day play-based learning can enrich their kids’ experience, for a better start for school, so they’re more likely to graduate from high school and go on to university or college. TF: Is demand exceeding supply? MM: I’ve heard it’s oversubscribed generally around the province. We’re offering it to about 21,000 students this year, and next year it will be available for all students. One of the things we have to do is develop some new space, and that will happen over the

course of this year. TF: Is the half-day option for kindergarten still available? MM: The half-day option is still available this year. Next year the plan is to only offer full-day kindergarten. We have heard from a few parents some uneasiness about that, and even for this year, some parents are wondering if their child’s ready for a full day. So we’ve asked parents to consult with their teacher, and there will be some flexibility allowed. TF: A pilot program for combining school administrative functions such as payroll, vacation and substitute teacher scheduling gets underway this year in Kamloops-Thompson, Surrey, Vancouver and North Vancouver. Is that proceeding according to plan? MM: Yes. There are a lot of things that have to be worked through and that’s why we’re starting with those four districts, but we’re absolutely committed to it where it makes sense.

Fatal hit and run

by Black Press

SHORTLY AFTER a fight on a transit bus, a man was killed by a hit and run driver. The man was struck by an eastbound vehicle on 168 Street and Fraser Highway at about 12:50 a.m. Saturday. There was an altercation on a bus before the accident,

authorities said. Two passengers got into a fight and one kicked out the window in the back door before he ran off the bus and was struck and killed. The vehicle fled the scene. It may have damaged headlights. Anyone with information can call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.

Education: Online learning has tripled in recent years From page 3 going to be doing 60 of the same things in different places. We’re going to try to streamline that. TF: That involves buying new computer systems? MM: No question. We’re aiming to have a common payroll system, common business functions. Government did this and it certainly accrued considerable savings. [Payroll] can be anywhere because it gets deposited in people’s bank accounts electronically. TF: B.C.’s Auditor General says you should extend this to school district banking and investments, so cash isn’t sitting in bank accounts. Are you following up on that?

MM: Absolutely. In fact just this past July we had already begun to do a ‘just-in-time’ flow of funds. Previously money for things like payroll was going earlier than it needed to.

“They’ve (Surrey) got 9,000 more students than they did 10 years ago. There’s growth elsewhere, but nowhere is it like that.” Margaret McDiarmid TF: Everyone imagines a future where there’s a teacher on a TV screen and everyone in the province is taking classes, to take an extreme example. Can amalgamation come to the classroom? MM: In fact it already

to graduate earlier, or they’re choosing to work full-time while they go to high school. TF: Enrolment province-wide is estimated to be down by about 6,000 this year. Is that the expected decline? MM: Yes. We’ll know

the actual number by the end of September, so we’re expecting about 544,000 students in classrooms starting next week. And Surrey continues to exceed expectations in terms of growth. It’s astonishing. TF: Are facilities keeping up with that? MM: We are behind in Surrey. We’re doing better over time. Back in 1998 there were 363 portables in Surrey. We now have projected about 232, so it’s better. We’re building new space for full-day kindergartens. We’re working on that but we have not kept up with growth in Surrey. They’ve got about 9,000 more students today than they did 10 years ago. There’s growth elsewhere, but nowhere is it like that.

An empty nest is inevitable. It’s just a matter of when the kids leave. Of course, you want to help them with a sound car, but not at the expense of a solid education. That’s where we can help. Working with you, we’ll help you balance the cost of a car with saving for a higher education. Either way, it’s independence for them and a little bit of freedom for you.

Parole did not deter Surrey fraudster by Dan Ferguson TIMOTHY Bradley

Moisan was still on parole for his part in one of B.C.’s biggest identity theft cases when he went back to using forged and stolen credit and debit cards. The 36-year-old was arrested at his Surrey residence in March of this year with several fake cards in his wallet and equipment to make fake cards on the premises. At the time, Moisan was serving 18 months probation after pleading guilty to two fraud charges, one connected to a 2008 identity theft ring responsible for the theft of thousands of sensitive documents from the post office, including 31 completed census questionnaires. On Friday, Moisan was sentenced to two years less a day of house arrest. Minus the six months already spent in jail, Moisan will serve 18 months in the community under restrictions. He had earlier pleaded guilty to 10 fraud-related charges including unauthorized use of credit card data and identify theft as well as one charge of violating the terms of his probation. Moisan, a broadshouldered, sleepy-eyed man with short dark hair and leading-man good looks, made a brief public apology before his sentence was pronounced. “I’d like to say I’m very sorry to the victims,” Moisan said. “I’m very ashamed and embarrassed by what I’ve done.” Those victims included a mentally and physically disabled man who lost nearly $3,000 that was later replaced by the financial institu-

tion. Crown prosecutor Brad Kielmann wanted a jail sentence of four years, while defence lawyer Terry La Liberte wanted house arrest. In deciding in favour of house arrest, Provincial Court Judge Karen Walker said Moisan had been a “very earnest, hardworking and dedicated father” of three before his marriage broke up and he fell into drug abuse.

Since the break-up Moisan has been treated for “significant” depression, the judge said. Moisan has been attending Narcotics Anonymous meetings in prison, where he is described as “respectful to peers and staff ” by prison guards, the judge added. He must live at a Surrey recovery house, obey a 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. curfew and is forbidden from going to pubs,

lounges or liquor stores. “You have much at stake,” the judge told Moisan. “The hole you have dug for yourself is not so deep (that you cannot rebuild your life).” Moisan’s family, including his parents, were in court for his sentencing. One of them spoke from the visitors’ gallery and thanked the judge as the hearing wound down.

HST

RAESIDE

Difficult to reverse

F

ight HST collected some 700,000 signatures on a petition calling for the death of the Harmonized Sales Tax. This was even before new revelations that the B.C. Liberal government forged ahead with the HST after high-level bureaucrats warned – before the May 2009 election – about harmful effects on the provincial economy for at least five years. There is growing doubt, however, that the HST can be repealed even with all those signatures, even if the anti-HST forces succeed in recalling Liberal MLAs. As detailed in a report by Black Press legislative correspondent Tom Fletcher, former B.C. attorney-general Geoff Plant offered a legal opinion about the petition’s HST extinguishment component. In spite of Vancouver Island North MP John Duncan’s disingenuous comments about the federal government’s lack of HST involvement, the tax is a result of federal legislation. A province, Plant noted, cannot extinguish federal law. If B.C. could repeal HST legislation before the five-year contract expires, presumably it would also have to return the portion of the $1.6-billion bribe that Ottawa has already shipped to Victoria. The anti-HST petition also calls for Victoria to reinstate the Provincial Sales Tax, although it doesn’t estimate how much it would cost B.C. taxpayers to rehire about 300 tax collectors transferred to the Canada Revenue Agency. There’s no way to halt the anti-HST movement now without causing a backlash among the 700,000 signatories, but it would make more sense to save energy and conserve funds as well as nurturing the sense of betrayal until the next provincial and federal elections. If you must, punish the provincial Liberals at the ballot box for the way they dropped the HST into our midst. And don’t forget about the federal Conservative government’s heavy involvement. – Black Press

bcviews

few hours after legislative press gallery reporters unveiled the documents obtained in a long-awaited freedom of information request about B.C.’s preparations for the harmonized sales tax, the Bill Vander Zalm conspiracy clown car clattered by with another urgent message. Zalm wheelman Chris Delaney leaped to his computer to proclaim: “FOI reveals B.C. government in negotiations on HST months before 2009 election.” This would indeed be big news, if only it were true. It would mean not only that the B.C. Liberals deliberately lied about their tax plans before the election, but that senior provincial officials, and at some level the Conservative government in Ottawa, were in on the deception. I asked Delaney to show me where “negotiations” are “revealed.” Since he apparently hadn’t read the actual documents, he replied with references to various media accounts, including speculation that the proof might be hiding in pages blanked out by officials to protect “advice” to Finance Minister Colin Hansen.

This is important because it determines whether B.C. finance ministry officials did their jobs in a professional fashion. I’ll remind you that Delaney and Vander Zalm were quick to claim that Elections B.C. officials were corrupt, after they delayed the anti-HST petition to see the results of a court challenge. If that were true, it would have been the biggest political scandal in B.C. history, since that office presides over party registrations and campaign finance rules. The Zalmoids dropped that one quickly, and now they’re on to the next baseless claim of Third World-style corruption. Judge our politicians as you will, but let’s not drag our whole democratic system down with false allegations. There is more news in these documents, such as the negative short-term impact of the HST that the B.C. Liberals ignored. More on that later.

Wasting police time JUST A NOTE to again thank our

busy police department for stopping an out-of-control house party in our quiet neighborhood of Chimney Hills on a recent Sunday at 2:30 a.m. Such a waste of our police department’s time when robberies and murders are going on elsewhere in Surrey. We will assume the parents were away and judging from broken fences, etc., there will be some big repairs to make.

Comment ‘ridiculous’ (RE: “OUR WOMBS, our choice,”

Leader Letters, Aug. 25.) With all due respect for Elizabeth MacDonald’s frustration with Mike Schouten’s opinion on the abortion debate, she says he “needs to knock it off.” Perhaps she, too, should “knock it off ” with the “women’s right to choose” stance. The fact remains that in Canada, a woman has a right to choose an abortion because to date, Canada has no legal restriction on abortion. The latest report on Canadian abortion statistics (2005) claims that 96,815 abortions were performed, down 3.2 per cent from 100,039 abortions in 2004. That statistic would indicate women in Canada have a right to terminate their pregnancy if they so choose. Ms. MacDonald continues with, “I would rather a child be aborted than live a life without the love of a mother because she didn’t have a choice.” That comment was made after suggesting that those who are “pro-life” only care about the unborn child and are indifferent after its birth. What a ridiculous comment in light of the above statistic which, once again, shows a woman’s right to choose life or death for their child. It’s mere conjecture to generalize that an aborted child would not have the love of a mother. I’m so happy she is not God. Brian Batke Cloverdale

Give local creeks a fighting chance THE DELTA stretch of Cougar

Creek has, as long as I’ve lived nearby, seen consistent abuse – garbage being discarded off the Seaquam footbridge, pollutants carelessly poured into storm drains and vandalism of plant life by ignorant citizens. This has long bothered myself and upon receiving an invitation to join the Cougar Canyon Stream Keepers for a day of removing trash and invasive species, I simply could not refuse. We started hauling out invasive ivy between 120 Street and Nicholson Road as part of a project to bring native plants to the banks of the creek. The ivy covered much of the creekside and was most effective in choking out native species. After hours of intensive weedpulling in sweltering heat, I led a group of youth aged 14 to 21 down the creek towards the Seaquam footbridge on a trash removal expedition. In an ideal world we would have found no beer cans or candy wrappers and would have simply been on an urban hike. Sadly, this isn’t the case. Between the ten of us, we removed a computer monitor, a tire, a shopping cart, two large garbage bags of general litter and one bag filled with recyclables. This was all in the small distance between Nicholson Road and the area across from Seaquam Secondary School. I know firsthand that far more trash lies below the footbridge as it is washed down from there, the area we did

Readers taxed by columnist’s views ALTHOUGH I have vowed never to waste my

time reading Tom Fletcher’s biased columns anymore, I couldn’t avoid seeing the headline for his recent rant regarding Bill Vander Zalm and the HST (“Sorry, but the HST isn’t going anywhere,” B.C. Views, Aug. 25). I don’t need to read further to know that he is saying we need more taxes to pay for needed services. No we don’t. What we need is better management and distribution of the exorbitant taxes that we already pay. We don’t need to be paying the head of ICBC, BC Ferries, or other corporations million-dollar salaries, (to attract the best, they say), especially when they’ve failed to deliver. We don’t need more overpaid bureaucrats in our hospitals, making ridiculous decisions for those on the front lines, when they really have no idea what goes on. We’re sick of patriotism in regard to dishing out cushy jobs. We’re sick of huge golden handshakes when CEOs leave under cloak-and-dagger circumstances. We’re sick of broken promises. (When do the benefits from the Olympics kick in?) We’re sick of unfair treatment – tax the lowly south-of-the-Fraser River bums to cross the bridges, but let the rich go to their ski chalets on the Sea-to-Sky Highway for free. We are sick to death of being lied to, and having the wool pulled over our eyes. We’re sick of being dumped on. We pay more than enough taxes as it is,

and this is why the anti-HST petition was such a huge success. Our backs finally broke. Margaret Hangartner Surrey

B.C. residents fed up with ‘incessant’ lying WHILE TOM FLETCHER (and others) continue to inform us that the HST is here to stay, the words are flat and diminish a remarkable feat. The Recall and Initiative Act was designed to be prohibitive and to ultimately fail. It did not. But you miss the point by focusing only on the HST. That was simply the last straw and why it was so successful. Gordon Campbell lied to get re-elected (as he’s been wont to do). He rammed through a tax without any consultation with citizens. He is the author of P3’s and IPP’s (along with multinationals) that will see multinationals digging into taxpayers’ pockets for 30 to 40 years and shareholders enjoying profits courtesy of inflated prices (or other built-in guarantees) that taxpayers will ultimately pay. More than 700,000 British Columbians signed the petition because they were fed up with the incessant lying, arrogance and autocratic rule of Gordon Campbell. As to the group of six who attempted, at the eleventh hour, to derail this democratic process, shame on you. It is not the dismantling of the HST but the ludicrous and lucrative contracts this government has signed and the total mismanagement

of tax dollars that will burden future generations. How about doing an in-depth story on that.

Janice Crawford Surrey

Politicians piling taxes upon taxes YOUR VICTORIA CORRESPONDENT, Tom Fletcher,

appears to be sold on the rhetoric coming out of our capital city about the HST and the threatened cuts to “our government services, which we all have come to expect.” Stop there a minute, Tom. Personally, I have no expectations of being the now and future recipient of all of these so-called services. For one thing, the cornucopia will soon be empty, and for another, most of the older taxpayers (and younger, as well) never, ever, asked to be blessed in this manner. With taxes, government fees and a plethora of more-or-less cleverly hidden official charges in Canada today approaching 60 percent of the average Joe’s take-home pay, how much longer can we afford to allow our politicians and our commissars to pile taxes upon taxes? We are already quickly approaching the breaking point. Or do you think we perhaps should go all the way and suffer taxes at 100 percent and then wait for our food stamps and rental chits in the mail from Victoria or Ottawa? Maybe it is time for you to move around the province a bit and listen to fellow British Columbians. You might even be able to learn something.

Radio India manager in jail until at least Thursday

by Dan Ferguson MANINDER SINGH GILL, the

managing director of Surreybased Radio India, will have to remain in jail at least until Thursday when a Surrey Provincial Court judge is to make a decision on his application for release from custody until his trial. Details of the evidence presented by Crown prosecutor Paul Sandhu and defence lawyer Richard Peck during the two-and-ahalf hour bail hearing on Friday afternoon may not be reported because of a court-imposed publication ban. Gill is charged with eight criminal offences, including

discharging a firearm with intent to wound or disfigure, aggravated assault, and possessing a prohibited or restricted firearm with ammunition. The charges were laid after Harjit Singh Atwal was wounded in the leg during an Gill confrontation in the parking lot of the Guru Nanak Sikh Temple on Scott Road on Aug. 28. Gill turned himself in to Surrey RCMP on Aug. 30. Harjit Atwal is one of three people suing Gill for defamation and libel over a series of com-

ments that aired on Radio India, a station that broadcasts ethniclanguage programming to South Asian listeners from a transmitter in Washington State. A statement of claim was filed Aug. 3 in the B.C. Supreme Court registry in New Westminster by Harjit Atwal, Jaspal Atwal and Harkirat Kular over statements made during news broadcasts that aired on the station in May. The lawsuit names Radio India, Gill and 11 Radio India staffers.

On Friday, 29-year-old Lester Olivia Buezo Oseguera was charged with one count of murder, one count of unlawfully discharging a firearm, two counts of discharging a firearm with intent to wound or disfigure and one count of possessing a prohibited or restricted firearm with ammunition.

He was earlier charged with a separate count of possessing a prohibited or restricted firearm with ammunition. He’s due back in Surrey Provincial Court on Thursday. Oseguera was arrested Monday after a man’s body was found in a house in a Whalley residential neighbourhood near Hansen and Kalmar roads.

That briefing note and other government documents obtained under freedom of information legislation detail what would

HST deal only became clear to him in late May, when he read a similar briefing paper on a plane to Ottawa for a finance ministers’ conference. “To be honest, I don’t have any recollection of it,” Hansen said. “I know that it would have come to my desk about March 24. I would have taken a cursory look at it, but in the context of where we were at right then, which was basically the eve of the election,

and we were at the end of the legislative session. And quite frankly if it is something we had been contemplating, I would have paid a lot more attention to that briefing note than I did.” The briefing note, and another prepared for Premier Gordon Campbell in January 2009, warns of the shift in tax burden from businesses to individuals. B.C. officials also cited a report from the C.D. Howe Institute that

says imposing the HST could reduce economic output and employment for five years or more before showing improvement. Hansen said that study was based on previous provincial deals for the HST, without the transition funding or the flexibility to lower the rate and adjust it after two years.

paying attention to them, he wasn’t thorough about looking at the documents on the HST?” James added that Hansen and Campbell were asked repeatedly in the legislature if there were staff discussions or briefing notes on the HST before the election, and they replied that there were none. Hansen said he and Campbell met with deputy finance minister Graham Whitmarsh on May 14, two days after the election, and it was then they were told provincial revenues were down an additional $1.5 billion. Told to review options for meeting the pre-election budget targets, ministry staff came back with proposed tax hikes, spending cuts and the federal offer to pay $1.6 billion in transition funds for adopting the HST, Hansen said. “That was the first time that actually got our attention,” Hansen said, adding that it led to cabinet’s decision in July 2009 to go ahead with the tax.

Higher costs reported by respondents by Jeff Nagel SEVENTY-ONE PER cent

of B.C. residents surveyed in a new Angus Reid poll say they’re buying less as a result of the Harmonized Sales Tax. More than two-thirds of B.C. respondents said the HST has severely or moderately harmed their household finances, citing higher costs of dining, groceries, cellphone bills and clothing. Only one in 20 people polled believe government projections of lower prices over time as a result of the 12 per cent HST, which replaced the GST and provincial sales tax on July 1. Angus Reid officials say the negative view of the HST appears to run deeper in B.C. than Ontario, despite the fact Ontarians are harder hit because their govern-

ment didn’t exempt gasoline and electricity bills from the HST. The pollsters’ cite the “palpable” animosity in B.C., where they found 75 per cent feel the government did a very bad job of handling the HST. “The public is almost universal in panning the way the tax was implemented and explained by the provincial administration.” The Aug. 16-17 online survey included 803 B.C. residents and a similar number in Ontario. The margin of error is estimated at plus or minus 3.5 per cent. A provincial government spokesperson said the poll underscored the mistaken impressions of many people, noting there’s no HST on basic groceries and no change in the taxes charged on cellphone bills or clothing.

On Thursday, the Surrey Fire Service rescinded the outdoor burning ban in the city of Surrey.

The Delta Fire Department has reduced the fire hazard rating from extreme to moderate, but the ban it imposed during the recent spell of hot, dry, weather will stay for the time being.

The biggest change is on the New West side, where TransLink’s preferred option is to switch access from Royal Avenue to Front Street. “Front Street is already a major truck route,” Hardie said. “It makes sense to us that Front Street becomes a major point of access for the Pattullo, both on and off.” There would also be access via East Columbia and McBride Boulevard. On the Surrey side, Hardie said it’s anticipated the new Pattullo, which would be built just upstream of the existing one, will connect with a full interchange to the South Fraser Perimeter Road. There would also be connections to 128 Street and Scott Road. More details are expected at the two open houses – the first on Tuesday, Sept. 14 at Chuck Bailey Community Centre in Surrey

TransLink is suggesting a replacement for the aging Pattullo Bridge could be open within five years. near Gateway Station and the second on Tuesday, Sept. 21 at the Justice Institute in New Westminster. Both run from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. TransLink previously rejected the possibility of a combined road and railway bridge that would also replace the existing New Westminster rail bridge, potentially also combined with the creation of a new artificial island at Sapperton Bar. TransLink’s current financial plan, which

includes an extra $130 million a year in taxes and fares approved last year, assumes the bridge will be tolled and does not earmark any dollars towards the estimated $800 million to $1-billion capital cost. The provincial government has pledged to look for ways to finance the bridge without tolls and avoid the spectre of tolling every river crossing into Surrey. Hardie said TransLink is willing to look at any such ideas.

“In the absence of any other way to pay for it, it has to be tolled,” Hardie said. “There’s no question there has to be a new bridge.” The 73-year-old bridge is 12 metres wide, far tighter than the 19-metre width for a four-lane bridge built to modern standards today. TransLink since 2005 has closed the centre lanes at night to prevent head-on crashes, greatly reducing the frequency of fatalities up until then.

Ironman competitor doubles donations Fundraising journey for Surrey charity ends in Penticton by Dan Ferguson BLISTER MANAGEMENT

is a important part of extremely long distance running, Will Rogers says. To complete his journey from the Lower Mainland to Penticton, the 51-year-old Rogers required a double layer of socks, liberal use of a skin replacement product and blister pads. They worked well enough that Rogers got one day ahead of schedule and managed to take a break en route to wrapping up his 944 kilometre ultramarathon on Aug. 27 in Penticton. It was a fundraiser for the Surrey-based Servants Anonymous Society (SAS), a charity that works to rehabilitate street prostitutes. The Cloverdale resident started by swimming 22 kilometres from Sturdies Bay on Galiano Island to the Tsawwassen Ferry terminal in Delta. He says the July 3 swim went well, except for the harbour seals that nibbled on his toes and a boat that nearly cut him in half as he neared the finish line. Rogers, a father of three and grandfather of five, even shaved 25 minutes off his previous time. Then, he followed

up the swim with a 500 kilometre bicycle ride from Victoria to Penticton on July 17 and 18. The completion of the foot run marks the end of the third “Million Dollar Journey” by Rogers. The first year, he raised $10,000. Last year, the figure dropped to $2,500, a fact Rogers blames on the economic downturn. This year, results have improved with about $5,000 in donations so far and more expected to come in. He plans to go again next year, but will reverse his direction of travel by starting in Penticton and finishing in Victoria. Rogers would like to sign up 10,000 people willing to make a $20 monthly commitment for two years to Servants Anonymous Society (SAS). That’s 33 cents a day for just one life saved by SAS, he estimates. Rogers says the agency has 15 young women at present in their program. “They could have 150 if they had the resources.” Rogers is a paramedic based in Surrey who has run 21 Ironman competitions since he decided to get back in shape by doing a little jogging around the block and swimming in 1985 to lose weight.

Burglar attacks homeowner Crook uses spray to escape by Dan Ferguson A SURREY homeowner who caught a burglar in

the act required medical attention Tuesday after he was sprayed in the face with what Surrey RCMP described as a “noxious” substance. It happened around 1:45 p.m. in the 14700 block of 59 Avenue, a neighbourhood of recently built homes. The homeowner told police when he surprised a thief on his property, the crook used the spray to escape. The victim was treated by paramedics and is expected to make a full recovery. The suspect is described as a 5’4” darkskinned man with black hair in a short buzz-cut style. Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-5990502 or if you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. dferguson@surreyleader.com

That led him to his first fun run, and eventually to ultra-distance competitions where he swims, bikes and runs. “One race led to another,” he says. Rogers also carried a computer chip with the names and pictures of soldiers and police who have died in the line of duty. To get more information, visit www.willrogers.ca to download a donation card that can be sent to SAS.

The computer contained names, birth dates and personal health care numbers of patients who had their breathing rates tested in the hospital’s respiratory department. The laptop in question was not password protected – contrary to Fraser Health policy, according to health authority spokesperson Marie Nightingale. “There is an investigation underway to determine

why it wasn’t,” she said, adding other laptops in that department are being checked to ensure they comply. She said Fraser Health is offering to pay those patients affected for a one-year subscription to a credit monitoring service of each patient’s choice. Equifax offers such a service for $15 per month, suggesting the slip-up could cost Fraser Health at least $100,000. “We are sensitive to concerns of identity theft,” she said, but added there’s so far “no reason to believe the information contained in the document was widely disseminated.” The laptop has not yet been recovered and a police investigation is continuing.

Former Surrey company investigated by stock regulator Securities commission names five people in Sungro probe by Dan Ferguson WHEN SUNGRO Minerals Inc. was operating out of a

Surrey office building in the 7400 block of 132 Street, its stock price took a dramatic jump. It rose from 35 cents a share (U.S.) to $4.75 in just two months in 2009 – pretty good for a mining exploration firm that reported $299 in assets and $18,864 in debt. That got the attention of the B.C. Securities Commission (BCSC) the independent agency that regulates securities trading in this province. Commission staff quickly determined the company owned no mineral property, and the man running it had no training or experience in mineral exploration. The company told BCSC staff that it had no explanation for the share price increase. Concerned the sudden rise could be the result of a scheme to artificially boost the share price, the commission issued a cease trading order. Shortly after that, the company announced it was shifting its head office to the United States. Now, the commission has named five people it

claims were involved in suspicious trading. Parvin Kaur Dhudwal, Amrik Singh Bahd, Kulbir Singh (Kelly) Uppal, Gurpreet Kaur Jhutty and Paul Uppal have been ordered to attend a commission hearing into allegations the five were given money by the company to purchase shares. The commission statement says the five “contravened B.C. securities laws when they gave false or misleading statements in investigation interviews with commission staff.” The hearing was scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 7. The allegations have not been proven. Sungro Minerals now says it is raising money to build Disneyland-type shows. The Las Vegas-registered firm continues to trade as an over-the-counter (OTC) stock in the U.S. for pennies a share. OTC or off-exchange trading is used to trade stocks, bonds and other financial instruments directly between two parties without going through stock exchanges. dferguson@surreyleader.com

Vision Problems Can Affect Learning

Vision problems are more than just a nuisance for children. Impacted vision can have serious effects on a child's ability to learn in the classroom. Imagine trying to read a textbook or see the chalkboard with words dancing around or vision doubled. What if the words were blurred or even backward? These are the problems thousands of students face. Poor grades or an inability to pay attention in class may be incorrectly attributed to other learning or behavioral issues when really they could stem from poor vision.

Most vision screenings at school do not check for tracking, focusing, eye teaming, or perceptual skills. They simply check for visual acuity. Therefore, students with certain vision impairments may be sent on their way with a 20/20 bill of health. An optometrist or opthalmologist will be able to diagnose vision problems that are not apparent in school exams. Without proper diagnosis, children can experience low self-esteem and feelings of inadequacy in school. With repeated admonishments from educators and

parents, children may view themselves as "stupid" or unable to learn. This could impact them throughout their entire lives. Corrective treatments can improve a child's ability to see and learn. A study published in the Archives of Ophthalmology indicated that test scores of preschool-aged children who had hyperopia and astigmatism were lower than those who did not. Within 6 weeks of wearing corrective glasses, the children's test scores improved significantly.

The American Optometric Association recommends comprehensive eye exams each year before a child enters school. Parents can make this a part of annual physical exams when taking kids for yearly wellness visits. Children are not alone in vision problems. Adults can also be impacted by any number of vision ailments. Doctors recommend annual eye exams for adults as well. Make it a family affair and schedule appointments on the same day.

Long ride for good cause ‘Bike and build’ cyclists come to Surrey by Dan Ferguson A GROUP OF young Americans arrived in Surrey

Thursday to wrap up their coast-to-coast bicycle marathon to raise money for affordable housing. The 40 cyclists had been on the road for 68 days and 6,100 kilometres, starting in Portsmouth, New Hampshire and finishing in Vancouver. They spent the night at the Surrey Urban Mission before leaving for their final destination of Stanley Park in Vancouver last Friday.

Cyclists Kyle Gaimsby and Tony Bohr from Bike and Build are riding across North America to raise money for affordable housing. They managed to raise $150,000. New Jersey resident Kyle Gaimsby said the riders maintained a steady pace of 125 kilometres (75 miles) a day. “You get pretty used to it,” said Gaimsby, who is not a competitive cyclist. “We eat so many calories a day that it makes the miles seem pretty easy.” Fellow rider Tony Bohr of Chicago agreed. “After week or two you get past the soreness,” Bohr said. The run through the northern U.S. was one of eight fund-raising rides on different routes involving more than 250 participants this summer by bikeandbuild.org. The charity has raised more than 2.3 million (U.S.) for affordable housing since the first ride in 2002.

High expectations for Eagles New owners, head coach for Junior A hockey team by Nick Greenizan

T

he great thing about a new season, it’s often said, is that everybody goes into it optimistic, regardless of how the previous season ended. And with just a few days to go before the start of the B.C. Hockey League season, every team in the league – from the champs to the basement dwellers – is likely feeling pretty good about their chances. The Surrey Eagles are no different. In fact, with an entire new regime running the show – from new owners Chuck Westgard, Gary Nylund and Scott Bradley to new head coach Matt Erhart – there may even be more optimism than usual coming from the team’s dressing room in the corner of South Surrey Arena. “It’s really positive right now, and there’s a good vibe in the dressing room,” said Erhart, who still has a few cuts to make before his club opens the season at home Friday against the Langley Chiefs. “We worked hard this summer to change the culture of the team, and now we’re just trying to find the right mix of guys. Last year, Surrey finished 30-24-6 (wonloss-overtime loss) – good for fifth place in

The team has lost a handful of forwards off last year’s roster, too. Leading scorer Andrew Wallace has left for Bowling Green University, while fellow veterans Grant Toulmin, Chris Santiago and Adam Basford have all graduated from the league. Second-year junior player Manraj Hayer – who had an injury-plagued rookie year in Surrey – has also left the team, electing instead to join Everett of the WHL. Up front, returnees include Erik Cooper, Jamus Lane, Bradley McGowan and Richard Vanderhoek. “It’s nice to have a familiarity with a lot of the guys... we’re really happy with our core group,” Erhart said.

Erickson to broadcast Ice Hawks games North Delta resident to do play-by-play over the internet by Philip Raphael

PLAY-BY-PLAY CHORES for the PIJHL club will be handled by longtime sports broadcaster Steve Erickson, who has hosted the Sportswave show since 1996 in Delta. The North Delta resident fondly recalls how he got started in play by play. It was 1988 and Erickson, who in his youth played major junior ice hockey with the Oshawa Generals and was a referee in the now defunct World Hockey Association, was in the zebra stripes to ref the weekly Ladner Men’s Hockey League game. “Delta (Cable) used to do the

Erhart: Can’t wait to start From page 27 son,” Erhart said. Though the Eagles won just one of four preseason games heading into the season, Erhart was still impressed with what he saw from his troops. And, he – like his players – can’t wait to start playing games that mean something in the standings. “We’re all really excited – we wish it was Sept. 10 right now so we could get going.” HOME OPENER: The puck drops Friday at 7 p.m., but festivities outside South Surrey Arena begin at 5:30 p.m. Outside the rink, there will be music, a barbecue from M&M Meats and face-painting for the Eagles’ youngest fans. The new ownership group will also be on hand to greet fans and season-ticket holders. Friday’s game will also be broadcast live on radio TEAM 1040.

broadcast every Thursday night, live,” he says. One of the broadcasters didn’t show up to do the colour that night and the broadcast needed someone to fill in. “But I was reffing. So I thought to myself, how am I going to get around this,” Erickson says. A few quick phone calls later and he got a replacement for his on-ice duties and then headed up to the broadcast position where he had the show literally handed over to him. “Keith Frew did the ‘Hi and welcome to intro,’ part and without even batting an eye or warning at all looked over at me while we were live on TV and said, ‘Now, let’s turn it

over to our play by play guy, Steve.’” Erickson adds that Frew then slid all the game notes littering the broadcast desk over to him. “My look could have stopped the clock,” Erickson says. “And all I could hear on my headset from the Delta Cable director was, ‘Don’t swear, whatever you do, for God’s sake don’t swear.’” But the two games broadcast that evening went well and then Delta Cable owner John Thomas made a personal visit to Erickson the next day. “We talked a little bit and I asked him how the broadcast went. I told him I didn’t swear,” Erickson laughed.

What Thomas told him was the pair who normally did the game coverage wanted to quit and he needed a replacement right away. Plus, Thomas’ phone rang off the hook following Erickson’s broadcast with calls from viewers who enjoyed the commentary laced with analysis of how the game was being refereed. “It was trial by fire. Fire cracker more like,” Erickson says. Now, he gets to be the voice of his hometown team after spending the last two years calling games for the Cowichan Valley Capitals of the BCHL. “For me, living in Delta, every game for Cowichan was a road game for me,” he says. “As a result I

got to know the people at BC Ferries very well.” Erickson knows he’s got his work cut out for him with the Ice Hawks gig, but is relishing the opportunity to help get the junior B club better entrenched in the community. “I’ve repeatedly told the three owners of the club they have to get the team more involved in the community if they want it to be a real success. And I kept harping on that and I guess they figured they’d put me to the test and brought me on board.” Broadcasts for the Ice Hawks can be viewed on the club’s web site at deltaicehawks.com by clicking on the Ice Hawks TV column.

S

troll through downtown Cloverdale and you might spot a large granite statue of a man in a train conductor’s cap and uniform looking at a pocket watch. Sculptor Paul Slipper based the design on a photograph of Frank Horne taken a few years ago. Horne, one of only two surviving men who operated trains on the British Columbia Electric Railway (BCER), is a familiar face to railway enthusiasts in Surrey. For years, he would arrive at Fraser Valley Heritage Railway Society (FVHRS) events in full uniform and would be a target for snapshooters. While he could be accused of being a train conductor in that uniform, Horne was actually a motorman on the BCER – the driver/engineer, rather than the ticket-taker – from 1946 to 1951. As a volunteer with the with the FVHRS for its restoration of BCER railcar No. 1225 (see side story), Horne worked on the woodwork surrounding the installation of the safety glass.

“He was a pretty good carpenter,” says FVHRS vice-chair Robert Ashton. “He volunteered for years until his health started to go down.” Ashton explains that Horne was also a wealth of information about archaic mechanical contraptions that volunteers found on the railcar. “He was our encyclopedia: Frank, what’s this? Oh, it’s the rat trap eater! What the heck’s a rat trap eater? Where do you think it goes, Frank?” In his apartment, which he shares with his wife Pearl, the 88-year-old Horne pulls out a thick album of mementoes, pictures and stories of countless trains that were used on passenger and cargo runs in the Lower Mainland and the Fraser Valley for five decades. The 1100s, the 1200s, the 1300s... he informs a visitor of any number of technical specs on the different series of the railcars. Most used in B.C. were built from about 1910-1915 in St. Louis, MO. His first BCER runs in 1946 we were from Vancouver to New Westmi Westminster. Most of his passenger lat on were on Central Park runs later Bu and Burnaby Lake runs. a ran freight on the ChilliHe also wack lline, making three runs a w day, working as a trolleyman – a signa signaller to the train’s motorman, wh was often blinded to the who train’s position on curved tracks. At one point during a s spell on the that line, he slept for th three months in a Chilliwack

bunkhouse while working seven days a week. Horne has a cardboard box with some brass and iron items used he used on the trains, including a three-tone whistle, a brake handle and a key (a throttle controller used in earlier series of railcars). Although he would occasionally drive New Westminster city buses, Horne would mostly shuttle people and freight by electric rail on Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster, Richmond and Chilliwack runs. For a relative novice in the company, he was sometimes relegated to whatever was available. “Sometimes, if I couldn’t take a motorman’s See HORNE / Page 32

ON A LATE-SUMMER day, less than a year before it’ll move under its own power, BC Electric Railway (BCER) railcar No. 1225 has the attention of more than half a dozen skilled, dedicated volunteers at the Sullivan Car Barn. On one of her end doors, Larry Perkins screws in a door sill with a power drill. Underneath, Wayne Abbott is drenched in a shower of yellow sparks as he welds iron plates to reinforce the side entrance steps. Nearby, Neil Wilkie tinkers with a set of rubber air hoses and galvanized air pipes while Renè Doyharcabal prepares bolts that may be used on door handles assembled by a co-worker. Although BCER 1225 remains on supports as the motors and undercarriage are undergoing repairs at local industrial shops, there are signs that the five-year project is nearly complete. The roof is finished, the interior seats are in pristine condition, the interior brass fittings sparkle and the paint job is immaculate – a sharp contrast to the condition of the railcar when it arrived in August 2005. Since that time, more than 16,000 volunteer hours have been logged. “It’s just a fantastic group of volunteers that have really done a fantastic job putting that car in to the condition it’s in now,” says Robert Ashton, vice chair of the Fraser Valley Heritage Railway Society (FVHRS). “It’s amazing what they’ve done, considerSee BCER / Page 33

Metro Vancouver Invites Comments about Electoral Area A Election Administration

Horne: Preferred motoring a train over driving a city bus From page 31

Metro Vancouver is reviewing the way it administers its elections in Electoral Area A, with the aim of making improvements in time for the next local elections in November 2011.

job, I’d take a bus driver’s job. But I didn’t drive a bus any more than I had to.” Horne drove both BCER 1225 and 1304, which are stored at the Sullivan Car Barn. (The 1304 just arrived last year and its restoration is yet to begin). Horne’s father was a motorman at Marpole Station, and a few years after Horne “made it” too, he was disappointed when they started taking the trains off the line. With the public transport’s gradual “rails-torubber” switch in the 1950s, Horne wanted to stick with trains. “In 1951, I got a job with Greater Northern (Railway) because they were taking the interurbans off, and I didn’t want to drive a city bus.” It was a switch to a foreman’s job he’d keep for another 31 years. At 88, Horne still comes for occasional open house events at the Sullivan Car Barn. Although his health keeps him from hands-on volunteering with the FVHRS like he used to, Horne is eagerly awaiting the inaugural run of restored BCER 1225 in Surrey next year. “I hope to live long enough to run that thing on the main line. I think they’ll let me run it on the first day. I’ll be very disappointed if they don’t.”

Metro Vancouver is interested in hearing whether the electors of Electoral Area A have enough information before, during and after the election, whether they believe they have a good opportunity to participate in the process, and where they think improvements could be made. We invite you to write to Metro Vancouver with your comments and suggestions by October 1, 2010. Please forward to: Mail:

Chris Plagnol, Deputy Corporate Secretary Metro Vancouver 4330 Kingsway, Burnaby, BC V5H 4G8 Email: chris.plagnol@metrovancouver.org A response form that outlines key topics in the election process is available, if you wish to use it. Visit www.metrovancouver.org and go to “elections” to access it in electronic form. Your responses will be summarized and a public report will be considered by Metro Vancouver’s Electoral Area Committee. Metro Vancouver elections are administered in accordance with the requirements of the Local Government Act.

BCER: 1225 runs in 2011 From page 31

ing the state it was in.” “I think they did a beautiful job... really authentic,” says Frank Horne, an engineer who ran BCER 1225 on the Central Park line in the 1950s. But the restoration wasn’t easy. There’s a running joke among the volunteers that the car isn’t square. Ashton explains that the ends of BCER 1225 dipped down a few inches. Workers got headaches trying to, in just one example, attach square doors to an iron monster that had sagged over the decades due to metal fatigue and regular minor collisions with other train cars. BCER 1225, built in 1913 in St. Louis, MO, ran on BCER lines decades ago and languished in the U.S. until it was repatriated five years ago. It did the last scheduled BCER run from Steveston in Richmond to Marpole in Vancouver on Feb. 28, 1958. As the restoration project nears completion, there are now about eight or 10 skilled workers – carpenters, welders, body men – down from a peak of about 25 workers a couple of years ago. “The skill levels of these older retired workers is just amazing,” Ashton says. Next spring, FVHRS crews will begin testing BCER 1225 in preparation for, with fingers crossed, next summer’s planned

lowing a Bobcat last year before it was hauled out by a tractor. “The bullrushes should’ve told us it wasn’t the best location,” says Ashton. Solutions for this, their last and biggest problem, may involve crafty engineering or a heap of both gravel and money. Another issue not finalized is propulsion. BC Hydro won’t allow overhead copper wires to power the electric motors, since they’d interfere with other trains on the same tracks, so BCER 1225 will tow a “donkey,” a fake passenger car that will house a 600-volt generator. Ashton doesn’t know what fuel it would contain, but it would be as green as possible. Options include natural gas, propane or even a hydrogen fuel cell. BOAZ JOSEPH / THE LEADER Assuming things go well, next summer, weekenders will Larry Perkins screws in doorsill be able to ride back and forth plates on BCER 1225 at the from Newton to Cloverdale Sullivan Car Barn.
