Lying to save $801 costs couple $200K share with Tom Zytaruk

Now staff Twitter @tomzytaruk

They say cheaters never prosper. Here’s a good example why. A Surrey couple who lied to ICBC in an

attempt to avoid paying $801 in deductible and increased premium costs related to a Newton traffic crash are now on the hook for more than $200,000 after their deceit was exposed. Amarjeet Panag was driving her kids home from Khalsa School in Newton in 2006 when she crashed her husband Bahadur Panag’s Chevrolet Malibu into a Dodge van at 72nd Avenue and 130th Street.

It was a serious collision, causing significant injury and damage. The court heard that Mr. Panag talked a friend, Harinder Grewal, into fraudulently passing himself off as an independent witness to the collision, in their favour. But ICBC sussed this out. After finding Mrs. Panag entirely liable for the crash, ICBC concluded that she and her husband were guilty of fraud and, because

of that, their own car insurance coverage was forfeit. The insurance corporation determined the Panags were liable for the $188,772.86 it paid out in claims related to the crash and went after them in court. A trial was held in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver and Justice Christopher Grauer found in ICBC’s favour. see ICBC FRAUD › page 9

Health Tips

1 Begin Laser

Therapy immediately after injuries to help prevent chronic problems. 2 Don’t assume that an injury will go away on its own. Often, we need therapeutic assistance. 3 Acute and chronic pain can both be treated successfully with Laser Therapy. 4 It’s better to eliminate the cause of your pain than momentarily medicate the symptom. 5 Don’t ignore pain. It’s your body’s signal that something is wrong and that you should find a solution.

aria was taking pain medication for pain in her left elbow. The soreness kept her up at nights and prevented her from driving or even holding a cup of tea. But after only five Laser Therapy treatments, she stopped taking all medication. By her tenth session, she was back to normal. Maria’s story is not unusual for LaserHealth® Solutions, which provides Laser Therapy treatment in Surrey, Calgary, and Winnipeg. Laser Therapy has proven to be a fast and effective solution to a wide variety of soft tissue injuries, including whiplash, tendonitis, arthritis, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff injuries, ankle and knee sprains, sciatica, and tennis and golfer’s elbow. This form of treatment doesn’t mask the pain of an injury. Rather, it treats the injury directly by activating biochemical energy and accelerating the healing process. Laser Therapy works directly at the cellular level to help resolve inflammation quickly. The effectiveness of Laser Therapy varies from patient to patient, but after just a few weeks of treatment most patients report they are pain-free and have returned to

his family doctor and other specialists, but nothing helped eradicate the pain. When he first heard about Laser Therapy he was skeptical, he said: “The notion of lasers blasting away my pain seemed unreal.” But after a few treatments of Laser Therapy, the pain had disappeared. Ben admits he’s not sure of how Laser Therapy works, “I just know it worked for me!” So, how does Laser Therapy work? Skin, muscles, cartilage, ligaments and tendons absorb the red and infrared light. This stimulates cells, increasing their metabolism and regenerating healthy tissue. Laser Therapy provides cells with more energy, resulting in the resolution of inflammation, reduced scar tissue formation, increased lymphatic drainage and improved vascular circulation. This is a non-invasive treatment, as there are no needles used in this treatment. As well, because this is Cold Laser technology, there is no cutting or burning. The treatment is backed up by scientific research. Over 2,500 research studies that have been conducted on Laser Therapy. World-renowned cellular biologist Dr.

Mary Dyson has extensively published papers related to Laser Therapy research. She’s found that cells can increase their repair rate six to eight times when exposed to specific wavelengths of light. Many professional athletes benefit from treatments at LaserHealth® Solutions. Maria and Ben’s stories are among 340 patient testimonials listed on the company’s website: www.laserhealth.ca. The site also includes video demonstrations of patients receiving treatment and a more comprehensive explanation of Laser Therapy. To find out if Laser Therapy is right for you, call the Surrey clinic at 604-5751331 to book a consultation and assessment. The effectiveness of Laser Therapy varies from patient to patient.

Surrey land will help balance budget

Reliance on asset sales to prop up budget is like selling family’s jewels to buy groceries, Ralston says Tom Zytaruk

Now staff Twitter @tomzytaruk

The Liberal government is planning to sell off several public assets in Surrey to help balance the budget it delivered Tuesday. These include two vacant lots near 192nd Street, a former elementary school, a former school board office, and six hectares of vacant land in the Panorama neighbourhood. “It’s not sustainable,” Surrey-Whalley NDP MLA Bruce Ralston said of the government’s reliance on asset sales to prop up Tuesday’s budget. “The Liberals’ primary fix is to sell off our valuable assets in a onetime fire sale without proper consideration for the benefits of not selling. It is only a one-time fix that does nothing for future budgets. “It’s clear the Liberals have run out of ideas,” Ralston said. In February 2012, the provincial government announced that it would sell off 15 acres of prime land in Sullivan,

Bruce Ralston

Anita Huberman

at Highway 10 and 152nd Street, which had been earmarked for health-care development under the Surrey Official Community Plan’s South Newton Neighbourhood Concept Plan. At the time, Ralston likened it to selling the family’s jewels to buy groceries. The government says it already has sales agreements underway on 16 of 100 properties it hopes will generate $625 million for B.C. “It’s not clear it will actually happen,” the NDP finance critic said. Anita Huberman, CEO of the Surrey Board of Trade, echoed that. “The challenge for the government will be to sell them.” Finance Minister Mike de Jong said that starting next January there will be a “temporary” two-year increase in the personal income tax rate on income above $150,000 a year. “With this budget, we are also asking

those individuals who have a little more to contribute a little more.” Huberman expects higher income earners – those who make more than $150,000 a year – will “not be entirely happy” with their personal income tax going up by 2.1 per cent or the general corporate income tax rate raising to 11 per cent from 10. That said, Huberman’s assessment of the budget is “thumbs up in general” because, she said, it contained a “reasoned and pragmatic” approach in tough economic times. Some might say the government has taken a page out of the NDP’s playbook by raising taxes on the rich this time around. Huberman finds it “kind of like” U.S. President Obama asking the wealthy to help rather than a Robin Hood-style grab from the rich. Ralston sees it differently. “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery,” he noted. Premier Christy Clark will be in Surrey this morning (Thursday) for her “Premier’s Provincial Budget Breakfast,” hosted by the Surrey Board of Trade at Eaglequest Golf Course in Newton. Will Clark receive applause over this budget, or a get an earful instead? “It’s hard to say,” Huberman replied, “because there will be a lot of big business there. I really don’t know.” tzytaruk@thenownewspaper.com

Highlights

P

rovincial Finance Minister Mike de Jong says the budget he delivered Tuesday, which covers the next three years, is a “modest, responsible and achievable plan.” Some highlights: ❚ Effective Jan. 1, 2014, Medical Service Plan premiums will increase by four per cent. B.C. is the only province that charges health-care premiums. ❚ Also starting on Jan. 1, 2014, the government will impose a “temporary” two-year personal income tax rate increase on income above $150,000 a year. The rate will increase by 2.1 per cent. ❚ Under education, 500 more teachers will be hired, at a cost of $37 million, and $17.3 million will be devoted to special education, increasing hours of work for more than 7,400 existing assistants and placing more than 400 new teacher assistants in schools.

White Rock

Whale skeleton is Island-bound But not before nature’s carnivores help clean humpback carcass share with Christopher Poon

Now staff Twitter @questionchris

The skeleton of this humpback whale, which washed up in White Rock, will be put on display at the Whale Interpretive Centre at Telegraph Cove. (Photo: NOW FILE)

The skeleton of the humpback whale that washed up in White Rock last summer has found a home at the Whale Interpretive Centre at Telegraph Cove on Vancouver Island. However, it will still be some time before the whale’s remains will be on display for the public, as nature is still having its way with the humpback’s remains, said Paul Cottrell, pacific marine mammal co-ordinator for the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. “So the whale was taken out of White Rock and what we did was

arrange for a tug to take it out to Telegraph Cove, which is near Port McNeil,” said Cottrell. “Then we collected the stomach for analysis and the remaining bones were put in an underwater covering and carnivorous life are eating away at it, so hopefully this time next year it will be ready for the next stage, which will be cleaning off the bones and drying them.” Following that, Cottrell said the skeleton will then be prepared for public display at the centre, where it will join the remains of other marine mammals. “The Whale Interpretive Centre is a non-profit group that has an amazing marine collection,” said Cottrell, “They’ve got a fin whale, a killer whale, a grey whale, but they didn’t have a humpback whale. It’s probably one of the best institutions in Canada for marine mammal skeleton specimens and this is definitely going to be a big piece for their museum.” As for how the centre took

ownership of the remains, Cottrell said there really weren’t a lot of options. “It’s not a simple thing to take responsibility for, because (humpbacks are) a threatened species so the remains have to be used for education or research, that’s the only exemption for possession for a skeleton of a threatened species,” said Cottrell. Cottrell says he hopes residents of coastal cities such as White Rock will be on the lookout for whales and other marine life to prevent something like another whale beaching itself. “We always like to encourage people to call 1-800-465-4336, the marine mammal response number, if anyone sees a distressed, tangled or injured mammal,” said Cottrell. “It’s calls from citizens that really make our program work and while it was too late for this one, the more eyes and ears we have out there the better chance we have at getting to an animal before it gets too bad.” cpoon@thenownewspaper.com

A homicide investigation is underway after a woman who was beaten in Whalley more than two months ago died earlier this week. Janice Shore, 43, had been in a coma since the Dec. 2 attack. A passerby found her in a vacant lot in the 13500-block of 106th Avenue. The Surrey RCMP came under some criticism at the time for not alerting the public about the attack until two days after Shore had been found.

Cops to hear fate Two Surrey police officers accused of assaulting a 73-year-old man at Surrey Memorial Hospital in 2010 will learn on March 6 if the case against them will be stayed or if it will go to trial on April 2. Surrey RCMP Const. Mitchell Spears and Transit Police Const. Ken Jansen pleaded not guilty Monday to assaulting Robert Keith Booker, now 77, on April 22, 2010. The Crown alleges Booker was assaulted and Tasered during an unprovoked attack.

Immigrants have ally Program aims to help newcomers find work Jacob Zinn

Now contributor Twitter @jacobzinn

The City of Surrey – along with 21 community organizations – is working to develop a program to help immigrants and refugees find work. Surrey is one of 50 cities in B.C. taking on the Welcoming Communities Program (WCP), which aims to make the local workforce inclusive for foreign newcomers. WelcomeBC, a framework within the provincial government that provides services to new immigrants, has contributed $667,000 toward the initiative under the agreement that the funding is used by March 31, 2014. The city, which is the sponsoring organization of the local program, recently discussed its action plan with representatives from the Surrey Board of Trade and Progressive Intercultural Community Services (PICS), among

other groups. Charan Gill, CEO of PICS, said immigrants and refugees face difficulties finding jobs in Surrey, even when they have experience and education from their home countries. “Especially for refugees, it’s a big issue because they don’t know how to network, how to go around, how to do interviews, how to write a resumé,” he said, listing other issues such as language barriers and a lack of knowledge of the community. “For immigrants, sometimes the credentials aren’t accepted,” he added. “They don’t know their qualifications, they don’t know what their experience is, so we have to teach them, give them a chance, open the door and see how they do.” The program will teach immigrants and refugees the skills they need to obtain positions in the local workforce. The provincial government estimated that skilled immigrants will be needed to fill one-third of approximately 1.1 million job openings across B.C. in the next 10 years. jacobzinn@gmail.com

A Surrey man who was convicted of sexual assault in 2005 is the victim of a miscarriage of justice, a special prosecutor says. Police have issued a public apology for “the mistakes that were made.” Gurdev Singh Dhillon was sentenced in 2005 to four years in prison after being convicted in a case where two men raped a woman in a basement suite in Surrey. No DNA tests were done. Dhillon appealled the conviction and sentence in 2006, arguing that the trial judge erred by relying on the victim’s in-court identification, but the B.C. Court of Appeal upheld the conviction. On Wednesday, the Criminal Justice Branch announced that Special Prosecutor

Peter Wilson has since concluded that Dhillon had fallen victim to a miscarriage of justice. Chief Supt. Bill Fordy, in charge of the Surrey RCMP, issued a public apology Wednesday. He said in August 2011, Surrey RCMP sexual offence investigators reviewed the case and determined the initial investigation “did not sufficiently consider additional avenues regarding other potential suspects. They also determined this information was not shared with Crown counsel or with defence counsel during the original trial,” Fordy said. Meanwhile, Mohammed Zaaid Ukhttar and Sital Singh Bhatti were charged with sexual assault on Feb. 12, in connection with this case, and are to appear in Surrey provincial court on April 5.

Caterer likes liquor law changes Carolyn Cooke

Now staff Twitter @carolyncooke1

A Surrey caterer is applauding changes to the province’s liquor laws that she says will be good for both business and people planning big events. Lisa Houweling, caterer and a director with McJac’s Roadhouse Grille in South Surrey, said the change will make for more profitable businesses and also happier customers.

The change, announced by the provincial government earlier this month, now allows caterers to get a special occasion liquor licence for events for which they’re hired. Up to now, caterers were not allowed to get these liquor licences nor to serve alcohol at events, even if their people were qualified. And as Houweling noted, liquor is generally the more profitable side of a restaurant business, and will help businesses such as the Roadhouse,

which has a licensed restaurant, bakery and catering service. “This will be creating happier customers,” she said. “It’s better to have a one-stop (set up) as much as possible,” especially for large events like weddings that involve a lot of details and contracts.” The new law brings B.C. into line with other provinces and is expected to support job creation as well as boost the tourism and hospitality sectors. ccooke@thenownewspaper.com

Earth to Surrey: you missed the sports boat ViewFrom TheCheap Seats Michael Booth

S

urrey’s municipal government is still months away from moving into its shiny new city offices in the heart of Whalley, but it sounds like some of the decision makers have been sampling the wares offered by the freelance pharmacists who dwell in the area. Either that, or it’s time for the RCMP to take a closer look at what sort of plants are growing in the gardens around the current city hall. I say this after the city stated its desire to “advance Surrey as a leader in the industry and premier destination for regional and international sporting events.” Is this some kind of joke? To put this delicately, when it comes to hosting major sporting events, Surrey is like a wayward traveller standing at the pier with a pair of suitcases and looking longingly at the ocean hours

after the ship has sailed. The city can blather on about all the wonderful amenities available to residents and, indeed, there are plenty of recreational opportunities in Surrey with well maintained ice arenas, swimming pools, community centres, playing fields, cricket pitches, ball diamonds and skate parks. Heck, there’s even a kabaddi field. Surrey has one of the youngest populations in the province with more than 1,000 people moving here each month, many of them families who make use of these spaces. But if the goal is to attract major events of regional, national and international significance, then there’s a problem. The only indoor facility of any size is South Surrey Arena, which seats roughly 1,000 spectators and, as I understand it, can only be used for ice-based events. Apparently the building is not equipped with a sprinkler system over the playing surface, which precludes using the facility for dry floor sporting

events. When we move outdoors, the landscape becomes truly jarring. The city wants to welcome the world to major sporting events in a place that doesn’t even have the most rudimentary stadium facilities. Having friends and family risk slivers and wet bums by sitting on the weathered, mossy planks of the “temporary bleachers” – 20 years and counting – of Bear Creek Park is fine for a one-off communitybased event like the B.C. Summer Games. But does such a dilapidated structure make the grade when you’re aspiring to be “a leader in the industry and premier destination” for sporting events? Surrey’s dishonour roll as a sports venue is not a short one. The PGA Tour’s Air Canada Championship and the Canadian Tour’s Surrey Open have both come and gone, but the loss of those events was tied more to sponsorship dollars than the superb hosting golf courses.

WLA lacrosse – gone. B.C. junior lacrosse – gone. B.C. junior football – gone. And the main cause cited by the teams at their departure was the need for suitable facilities in the city. Of course, Surrey did take a stab at building a stadium, but all the resulting Stetson Bowl debacle did was stain the resumés of every person associated with the project – including the players on the one-and-done Surrey Glaciers baseball team. The lone glimmer of success rests with softball, a sport that has established an international home in Surrey through events like the Canada Cup and the Canadian Open and is currently in the running to bring the world championships here in 2016. It must be noted, however, that the centrepiece for the Surrey bid is Softball City, a facility that was built with private dollars way back in the 1990s. Unfortunately for Surrey, the time to act on the goal of becoming a sports

destination of note was back when those sodden planks in Bear Creek Park still smelled of fresh sawdust. At that time, there were no ice arenas in the Lower Mainland that seated more than 2,000 spectators unless you wanted to boost your bottom line by renting the Pacific Coliseum. Outdoors, there was just Swangard Stadium in Burnaby, Thunderbird Stadium at UBC and not a lot else. That was the time for Surrey to act and build the kind of venues that would create a sporting culture to draw the bigger events to town. Need proof? Check out Kamloops, a smaller Interior city that built facilities at that time and has since been able to brand itself as Canada’s tournament destination. Sorry to break this to Surrey officials, but it’s now too late. Today there are gleaming multi-use sports palaces in Burnaby, Richmond, Langley, Abbotsford and Coquitlam. Anyone looking to host a

sports event in an outdoor stadium without the need for a tetanus shot can consider venues in Coquitlam, Burnaby and Abbotsford. Surrey does not have the facilities to accommodate any event that draws larger crowds and to build them now would be creating a glut of such buildings in the region. Why build a new 5,000-seat arena or outdoor stadium when there are similar shiny new structures less than five miles away in Langley? All Surrey would be creating is redundant buildings that will make it even more difficult to compete for the events needed to make such structures financially viable. Surrey officials would be wise to stick to the recreational pursuits they know best and refrain from sampling those funky little mushrooms growing in the lawn at city hall.

He came here knowing it was monarchy The Editor, Re: “Royal rejection,” the Now, Feb. 14. It is surprising to me that Gurpreet Singh immigrated to a country he is so critical of. He must have known that Canada had a monarchy at the time he immigrated. While it is very generous of him to take on the task of “educating Canadians,” I am sure there is much “educating” to be done in India – certainly too much to list here. I don’t think there is a country in the world that doesn’t have a “nasty past.” The key word here is “past.” Irene Owens, Surrey

ALR land needs more than just lip service The Editor, While a growing majority of Canadians recognize global warming and seek action, the federal government continues to give lip service at best. Here, Metro Vancouver is asking the feds to do the right thing in reining in the Port Authority, which claims unilateral power to change ALR land into industrial use. Speaking with forked tongues, on one hand they claim a desire to protect ALR land, while at the same time they say the industrial lands that remain in the Lower Mainland is “insufficient” for the future of our economy. Doing the right thing requires stepping up to the plate in protection of not just our environment but current and future generational access to safe and viable food sources. The alternative – to remove more land from the ALR – makes a mockery of the original purpose of farmland protection. Worse, it is the poorest form of

modelling for our children, by sending the message that money and development are the only things that really matter. Our children, all of us, deserve better. In the end, we can’t eat money... nor can our children and grandchildren.

The Editor, Most people who oppose the upcoming SkyTrain fare gates seem to have not realized that part of the reason TransLink and the B.C. MOT want to introduce fare gates is so that integration with the upcoming Compass transit fare-card can be achieved. The Compass card and the data it obtains from its ability to track the beginning and end points of all transit trips will spawn huge improvements region-wide in transit service optimization and cost-efficiency, and these are what is going to offset the capital and annual costs of the fare gates. Without the fare gates, there would be no way to figure out what trips occur on SkyTrain and no way to optimize based on those trips. That would be counterproductive, as SkyTrain is a part of so many transit trips in the region. The Compass card concept is the same concept that has already been introduced on the transit system in Montreal, and is used worldwide in transit systems. Once the Compass card becomes a part of our transit system, everyone’s going to have a better experience on transit here in Metro Vancouver. Daryl Dela Cruz, Surrey

Bouquets of red roses to businesses that don’t allow household pets inside their retail stores. Many people are allergic to dog and cat dander. If household pets are wandering around inside your store, it forces people with allergies to drop their shopping and leave. A bunch of roses to the father who waited with me (a senior) while I made a bank transaction early Family Day morning. The location was very open and I felt very vulnerable. He had a young daughter waiting for him in his car. You have shown a good example of kindness to your daughter. Thank you again. A cargo van full of roses to the people who searched for my little dog on Feb. 17. I went to Shoppers with my two little dogs. When I came out of the store, only one was in the car. I was frantic. Many people helped me for 45 minutes to try to find her with no success. I must say it has a happy ending and my dog is home safe and sound – she went to one of my neighbour’s. It restored my faith in humanity. A big thank you to all the people who went out of their way. Two semi trucks full of rotten tomatoes back to the pitbull owner who thinks that drivers who accidentally hit their unleashed, roaming dog should pay for the vet bills. The innocent driver is not responsible for leashing, securing or training your dog not to run out into the street – you are. Shame on you for trying to make someone else pay for your mistakes.

50+ years of Gannon on jazz guitar Musician, 69, opens door to his longtime home at Crescent Beach buy tickets with Tom Zillich

Now staff Twitter @tomzillich

It’s amusing to note that the very first concert Oliver Gannon saw, as a preteen in his native Dublin, Ireland, was a show by Bill Haley & His Comets in the mid1950s. “I was in the crowd, screaming with all the rest of the kids,” Gannon recalled with a smile. Of course, Haley is among early stars of the genre to influence a generation of musicians to rock around the clock. But those 4/4 beats didn’t move Gannon so much, because by 1960 it was jazz music, not rock, that gave the teen a jolt when he first picked up an electric guitar, an instrument he’d go on to play for the next five decades. That first guitar, a Gibson ES-125, was a purchase suggested to him by his mother – a real twist on the usual son-mother negotiations of such matters. “So I bought the guitar (in Winnipeg, to which the family had moved) with money I had left over from

tuition fees,” Gannon said. “My dad taught me a few chords by playing them on the piano, so I figured it out that way. It came to me pretty quick.” In conversation at his longtime home in Crescent Beach, Gannon, 69, recalled his long journey in music, from engineering student with a curiosity for electric instruments to semi-retired player still in demand for his six-string skills. “You have to remember that in 1960, the Beatles hadn’t happened yet, so no, I never got overly into rock ‘n’ roll,” Gannon said. “I’m not sure why, but as soon as I started playing, I totally got hooked on jazz, which I knew nothing about – other than from my father (pianist Joe Gannon). It was a great time for jazz, though.” The enthusiastic yet lateblooming Gannon studied the playing of Barney Kessel, considered king of the jazz guitar at the time, and found his way from Manitoba to Berklee school of music in Boston and eventually to Vancouver. For Gannon, the West Coast offered relief from the bitter cold of other Canadian cities that had tempted him

Director Dean Paul Gibson has a week to “put it all back together again” – a touring version of The 39 Steps, a zany spoof first staged by the Arts Club at its Stanley theatre in the fall of 2010 – and things are going well, apparently. “We’re rehearsing today,” he said in a lunchtime phone interview last Thursday (Feb. 21). “It’s always a good sign for me when the company involved in it – the stage managers and crew and everyone – is laughing. That makes me feel good because I know we’re doing something right, and this show is all about having a good, old-

all quite inspired by the wonderful sort of theatricality of it all, and the sort of poor-man’s-theatre nature of the piece,” Gibson said. “It’s fun to put my own signature on it – I’m not reinventing the wheel here, Tom. Like with all great shows that have universal appeal, like Noises Off and others in the comedic world, that if you follow it (the formula), you’ll be successful, but if you ignore what people have taken great time and care to create, you’re in peril of f***ing up something that is already a recipe for success. So although I’m a chef unto my own, I’m allowed to take some liberties and add some of my own spices, and I don’t mind doing that. Also a big part of that is casting it well, getting the right people and keeping it going.” see › page 18

Arts Club on Tour brings its version of The 39 Steps, a spoof of the Hitchcock movie, to Surrey Arts Centre from Tuesday, Feb. 26 to Saturday, March 9. The show is directed by White Rock-raised Dean Paul Gibson.

GUILDFORD DENTURE CLINIC Welcoming our new associate Malad Salasi to our clinic

Oliver Gannon ‹ from page 15

with residency in the early 1970s. He knew not a soul when he moved here, but Vancouver would welcome him warmly with gigs aplenty, including at the legendary Cave supper club and with the fusion band Pacific Salt. He performed at major jazz festivals in Europe and North America, did multiple tours of the former Soviet Union and earned national accolades for his musicianship. Along the way, Gannon met and married a singer of note named Pat Hervey, who once sang on The Tommy Hunter Show and just celebrated a 40th wedding anniversary with Gannon, on Valentine’s Day. “I’m feeling good – I play golf a lot, usually on Pender Island on the nice little nine-hole course they have there,” Gannon said. “I’m enjoying life now, kind of taking it easy.… I’m a big fan of semi-retirement.” With music, Gannon laments the lack of gigs for professionals on the scene.

“There are not that many gigs, but of those available, I’m still getting my fair share, and I’m really happy about that,” he said. “The gig situation for us jazz musicians in the Lower Mainland and, in fact, all around the world, is dismal right now, for a number of reasons. Here, we have one place, basically, at the Cellar (in Vancouver), and I’m lucky to play there quite often. We could use more jazz clubs, for sure.” Gannon typically keeps himself busy as a for-hire player, and less often as a bandleader; he hasn’t released a CD of music in his own name since the 2006 effort Too Much Guitar. “Historically, I was very much a side man in demand, I’m glad to say, but that kind of makes you lazy because you don’t pick up the phone and try to get your own gigs – everyone else is hiring you! I think deep down, I’m kind of lazy. To have your own group, it takes some get-up-and-go.” This Saturday night (Feb. 23), Gannon brings his quartet to Blue Frog studio in White Rock for a public

concert recording (tickets $35 via www. bluefrogstudios.ca and 604-542-3055). Featured will be Miles Black (“one of the best piano players in the world, really,” Gannon raved), South Surrey-raised Jodi Proznick on bass (“an absolute monster on bass”) and Blaine Wikjord on drums (“he just swings like crazy, a beautiful drummer”). The concert will be recorded “on spec,” Gannon said,“so if everyone feels good about the results, we’ll go to the next step with it.… Jazz is mainly about spontaneity, so maybe at soundcheck that afternoon I’ll give them a list of songs – jazz standards – and those players are so good, you get their creativity. The less you give a person, the more you get out of them, I believe. I’m like the policeman up there calling the tune and counting them off,” he added with a laugh.“We have a great time playing together, and jazz is really about having faith in the other members of the group because we never know what we’re going to do for an ending – or an intro, for that matter.” tzillich@thenownewspaper.com

Gibson, a one-time White Rocker and Earl Marriott Secondary grad, has become a go-to director and actor in Vancouver and beyond, most frequently with the Bard on the Beach festival at Vanier Park. “I’ve been very fortunate,” he said. “Theatre has become my life, thankfully. You know, there are days when I’d rather be a barrister or something like that, but it’s been wonderful.” This summer, he won’t be hands-on with any Bard on the Beach production in Vancouver. “This year is a bit different for me, because I’ll just be working in my role as associate artistic director, so working with Christopher (Gaze) on

season planning and whatnot and talking about future seasons,” Gibson said. “I’ll be back directing in 2014 during Bard’s 25th anniversary season. I’m taking a happy summer out of acting and directing at Bard, so I’ll be able to adjudicate theatre festivals and do some other things and spend some time in London with my partner. I like to shake it up, and it’s good for the health of the

company to get some new ideas, too, so it’s refreshing all around.” Tickets for the run of The 39 Steps at Surrey Arts Centre range from $15 to $43, via 604-501-5566 and tickets.surrey.ca.

“Where Every Day is Saturday”

The menu items at Tandoori Spice Restaurant in Surrey’s Newton community introduce flavours so fresh and authentic — you might think you were dining in the heart of India. Implementing the traditional cooking vessel, the clay tandoor (think part oven, part barbecue pit), further confirms the restaurant’s genuine offerings. This time-honoured custom utilizes intense heat and cooks food quickly while retaining its moisture. “We cook our main dishes and breads (paratha, nan, roti) in the tandoor,” says Rob Hara, owner/manager. “Our breads (egg-free) are made to order and we happily accommodate our guests’ requests for spice, whether mild, medium, hot, or extremely hot.” No surprise here, as meeting their customers’ needs and serving high-quality food, fresh ingredients, and good value is their top priority. “The vast majority of our food is house-made,” reveals Hara. “Nothing is pre-cooked and everything is fresh and cooked to order. We also cater to individuals for dietary and allergy requirements.” Their dedication to this philosophy has earned Tandoori Spice a notable reputation in Surrey, and speaks volumes to their longevity — they’ve been a family-friendly, casual dining experience in the community since 2001. An inviting, comfortable room (65 seats), the crisp linen table cloths and napkins might indicate

a formal atmosphere, but instead, it’s a nod to their attention to detail and quality, as is their brightly coloured and intensely flavoured menu creations. “We are introducing two new menu items — the tandoori chicken burger and a veggie burger,” says Hara. These dishes, in addition to launching various lunch specials at a nominal price add to an already valuefriendly lineup. “To compete with lunch buffets in the area (which we believe do not offer dishes at their freshest), we are featuring vegetarian and non-vegetarian specials,” says Hara. Choose one vegetarian dish, like shahee paneer or aloo gobhi, $9.99 includes rice and nan; alternatively, a non-vegetarian special, chicken curry, $10.99 with rice and nan. Like them on Facebook and receive their weekly specials. Favourite don’t-miss dishes include butter chicken and korma (silky rich curry sauce) items. Tandoori Spice’s success is not limited to its gastronomy. Hara credits his staff with providing the utmost customer service. They serve a regular clientele and firsttime guests who soon become repeat customers. “When people try us once, they’re hooked!” Private dining room, catering, takeout, and delivery are available. #2 - 7548 120 St., Surrey; 604-592-8900; Mon-Thurs 11:30am-10pm; Fri 11:30am-11pm; Sat 12:30-11pm; Sun 12:30-10pm; www.tandoorispice.ca

Helps to activate naturally millions of stem cells from our own bone marrow. The increase in stem cells released from the bone marrow into the blood stream have the potential to become other types of tissue cells with specialized function. Stem cells will multiply and are able to become heart cells, liver cells or any other organ. Located everywhere in our body, stem cells are even under our skin layered between the epidermis and dermis. This is why an increase in stem cells under our skin may help to #63 create a more youthful cell that would replenish elastin and collagen and thus may make us look younger. If our bone marrow does not produce enough stem cells this can result in many illnesses, especially a weak heart, kidneys, liver, pancreas, in fact all healthy functions of our body are decreased. Sufficient stem cells in our body have a great potential of self-repair and the ability to rejuvenate tissues. It does not contain live human stem cells as these can only be transplanted by surgery and are subject to immunosuppressant drugs to avoid graft rejection.

ebruary is a very short month, comparatively, but wow! This year it just sailed by on the wings of a dragon and is slithering as swiftly as a snake to its end. There. Got the Chinese Year of the Dragon and the new Year of the Snake all recognized. So many things to do – just takes time and money. Brilliant philosophy. So we just have to make the time and find the money to participate in community arts events. There are youth theatre events, semiprofessional and professional productions on this week’s list. All of them are solid productions. This weekend, Treasure Island is coming to Surrey. The Young People’s Theatre Company of Surrey (SYTCO) presents its 16th season at the Surrey Arts Centre with a telling of

Samuel Albert (as Jim Hawkins) battles Mia Jones in a rehearsal for SYTCO’s Treasure Island last week at Morgan Elementary school in South Surrey. (Photo: KEVIN HILL) Robert Louis Stevenson’s beloved novel. Directed by Susan Pendleton, this timeless family classic takes us on an adventurous journey with young Jim Hawkins and his relationship with Long John Silver as he enters the treacherous life of pirates and treasure hunting. Who doesn’t love a rollicking tale of pirates? Kids in the cast I have talked to are having the time of their lives rehearsing – swords and all. News this week is that the Friday show time (Feb.

22) has been cancelled, but there are still two chances to catch Treasure Island – on Saturday, Feb. 23 at 7:30 p.m. (tickets $19.75) and Sunday, Feb. 24 at 2:30 p.m. (tickets $26.95, with a special “Pirates’ Pickins Reception” with Long John Silver and cast included in the price). For show info and tickets, call 604-501-5566 or visit tickets.surrey.ca. The show is recommended for ages seven and up. see › page 29

‘Agnes of God’ in White Rock ‹ from page 26

Imagine That! Productions in Langley is another delightful source for family-friendly youth theatre. This season’s production is The Adventures of Robin Hood, with a little help from his friends. This classic story is infused with a Beatles twist at The Venue, 5708 Glover Rd., from March 2 to 10. Well, that should take care of February. Next week I might tackle March. Or maybe take a holiday. Build a deck. Plant some beans. Maybe even see a movie. You never know. melminty@telus.net

Becky Hachey (left) and Laine Henderson star in the Peninsula Productions version of John Pielmeier’s drama Agnes of God, on stage from Feb. 28 to March 9 at Coast Capital Playhouse, White Rock.

022113

Peninsula Productions is a semiprofessional theatre company. Its first presentation last year, The Mouse Trap, by Agatha Christie, was perfect. For the company’s second full production, artistic director Wendy Bollard has selected the compelling drama Agnes of God. It runs from Feb. 28 to March 9 at White Rock’s Coast Capital Playhouse. Bollard believes that theatre-goers will be as happy with this production as The Mousetrap. “This is a beautifully written piece of theatre and the three actors – Laine Henderson, Becky Hachey and Nancy Ebert – are inspiring performers. I really think audiences are going to enjoy this show.” Tickets are $18/$23 at 604-536-7535 or online at www.peninsulaproductions.com. Professional theatre companies love performing at Surrey Arts Centre, a beautifully appointed facility with easy access and free parking. Next up in the Arts Club on Tour series is The 39 Steps. Hitchcock meet hilarious in this comedic adaptation of the 1935 Hitchcock classic film. Four very accomplished actors portray more than 150 characters. Directed by our hometown favourite, Dean Paul Gibson, this show is a sure winner, running from Feb. 26 to March 9. Tickets range from $25 to $43, including all fees. Yes, the price does go up when you have to pay the cast and crew. Worth it! Tickets are available at the box office, 604-501-5566.

On the heels of a hot (sold out) “Valentine’s Blues Extravaganza” Saturday with Powder Blues Band and James “Buddy” Rogers, White Rock Blues Society has booked guitarist Bill Johnson at the Pacific Inn Hotel bar for a March 23 concert date. Five years ago, Johnson played a sold-out date at Crescent Beach Legion hall. “His band delivers a tight and powerful sound,” recalled Rod Dranfield, president of the society.

LOCAL JUNO NOMINEES

Juno Award nominees were announced Tuesday, and some of the musicians have roots in the South Fraser region. Two of five nominees for Instrumental Album of the Year are Five Alarm Funk, which recorded Rock the Sky in White Rock, and Pugs & Crows, powered by the guitar playing of North Delta-raised Cole Schmidt. Hedley and its Surrey-raised singer Jacob Hoggard is in the running for three awards, and Abbotsford’s Victoria Duffield, who spent a great deal of time in Cloverdale honing her singing skills, is up for Pop Album of the Year. Chad Brownlee and Dallas Smith, both of whom call Langley home, are in the hunt for Country Album of the Year honours, and Metal/Hard Rock Album nominee Devin Townsend Project hails from New Westminster. The Juno Awards show will be held in Regina on April 21. tzillich@thenownewspaper.com twitter.com@tomzillich

urrey Arts Centre’s main stage sure was rocking with 54-40 on Saturday night, especially during the band’s second set of electric hits – an endless string of them. A significant number of people jumped out of their seats to dance in front of the stage, something rarely seen at the Bear Creek Park venue. During the encore, lead guitarist Dave Genn wore a “SRY” baseball jersey in honour of his roots in Surrey (Crescent Beach, specifically) as the band grooved a mashup of “Love You All” and the Stones’ “Miss You” (which had guest keyboardist Tom Hooper, of Grapes of Wrath fame, on lead vocals doing Mick). Genn’s cool shirt arrived via Don Pitcairn and his headline-making surreyshirts.com website. “We have added a ‘Bands’ section to the top header of our website, looking to promote Surrey bands and others playing in the big city and outfit them with our styling gear,” Pitcairn told me. “Would love to see our merch on stage or in videos, helping to increase pride in Surrey and efforts to reduce or eliminate gun and gang violence.”

Whether your dream home is a Victorian character home in the city, a sleek condo with 360-degree views, or a sprawling rancher in the suburbs, figuring out how much house you can afford is critical before making any decisions. “A helpful place to start is by figuring out your gross debt service (GDS) ratio,” recommends Ron

k_\efne\njgXg\i%Zfd fe\ i\^`fe% fe\ e\njgXg\i% fe\ n\Yj`k\%

Abraham, president of the Ontario Real Estate Association. Gross debt service ratio is a calculation of the total maximum housing payment that you can afford, including your mortgage, property taxes, heating and cooling costs, and condo fees. Figure out your GDS ratio to find out how much house you can afford:

• Add up your gross monthly income and multiply by 32 per cent. This figure is the maximum monthly housing payment that you can afford. It should never exceed 32 per cent of your gross monthly income. • You must also factor in one-time costs and insurance. These include a see › page 41

Warriors nail down top seed Michael Booth

Now staff Twitter @boothnow

The final push for berths in the 2013 B.C. Senior Boys AAA High School Basketball Championships is now underway following completion of the Fraser Valley zone playoffs last weekend. Leading the pack is the White Rock Christian Academy Warriors who secured the No. 1 seed for the Fraser Valley tournament with a dominant 68-50 win over cross-town rival Tamanawis Wildcats in the final of the Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s southwest zone Friday. The game was a rematch of Januaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Surrey RCMP final with a similar result although White Rockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s win this time was more emphatic. The Warriors held the Wildcats to seven points in the first quarter and nine in the second frame in building a massive 33-16 halftime lead. Tamanawis closed to within 10 points in the third quarter but White Rock responded by stretching their lead back to 18 points and then cruising to the win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the most part the damage was done early,â&#x20AC;? said White Rock coach Dale Shury. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you hold a high scoring team like Tamanawis to single-digit quarters backto-back, it shows how well our defence was playing. That kind of set the tone for the game. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been preaching for the last little while how tough defensive stops typically turn into points at the other end and that was true in that game. Winning those battles was a big difference in the game.â&#x20AC;? Vartan Tanielian led the Warriors with 28 points while Tyus Allen and Sam Ykema chipped in with 16 and 13 points, respectively. Even with the loss, Tamanawis heads into the Valley tournament seeded fourth with a solid chance to advance to next monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s provincial championship tournament in Langley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been talking the guys down after the White Rock game and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had some good practices,â&#x20AC;?

The best female softball players on the planet may once again be coming to Surreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Softball City. Softball Canada announced Monday that Surrey has been selected as this countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bid city to land the 2016 International Softball Federation (ISF) Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s World Championships. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are carrying the torch on behalf of Canada and we are taking it very seriously,â&#x20AC;? said Greg Timm, chair of the Surrey bid committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are not in this to lose. Because of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation in the world having Softball Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backing is important but just as important is the reputation weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve built here in Surrey for our ability to host world class softball events. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re well known in the international softball community and I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seen as a safe choice.â&#x20AC;? Surrey made its name as a host city for international womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s softball with the annual Canada Cup tournaments that groomed a generation of Canadian players for Olympic competition. When womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s softball lost its Olympic status after the 2008 Beijing Games, international softball continued at Softball City in the form of the Canadian Open invitational tourney. Timm said the Surrey organizers have been working on the bid for the past two years after changes to the International Softball Federationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tournament structure and financing make a bid feasible. The Surrey organizing committee wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know who they are bidding against until June when official bid documents must be filed.

Draws rule final weekend Six games — five ties. That was the menu served up by the Vancouver Metro Soccer League’s premier division on the final weekend of the regular season. The lone game with an actual winner came Friday night in Vancouver where the Delta United Hurricanes were upended 2-1 by the lowly Vancouver Olympics. To add insult to the pain of the setback was the loss of key Hurricane players Ryan Dhillon and Arjun Atwal, both of whom were sent off with red cards. Neither player will be available this weekend when the Hurricanes take on rival ICST Pegasus in Imperial Cup action at John Oliver Park Sunday at 2 p.m. Pegasus ended the regular season with a 2-2 draw against Croatia in Newton last Friday. Elsewhere, defending provincial champion Surrey United Firefighters ended the regular season on a tepid note when they settled for a 1-1 draw in Coquitlam Tuesday night. Surrey opens Imperial Cup play by hosting Inter FC of the first division Saturday at noon at Cloverdale Athletic Park. Newton’s Rovers CCBTU slowed their second half freefall with a 2-2 draw against league champion Columbus in Vancouver Saturday.

Surrey bid strengthened by softball reputation ‹ from page 43 documents are due. To counter this, the Canadian effort is making its intentions known early, gambling it will scare off some pretenders and will drum up support among nations who know how well Surrey can stage an event like this. The Surrey bid delegation will travel to Colombia in October to make a final pitch to delegates at the International Softball Federation congress. “What’s pertinent for our bid is countries like Surrey and they love coming here,” Timm said. “They feel like they’re coming to their second home in softball because we have so much local support. Teams are comfortable here plus we have delivered on every promise we’ve made to visiting teams

and that’s important because when you’re dealing with some countries, that’s not always the case.” Canada is no stranger to hosting the women’s softball worlds as the event has made previous stops in the great white north in 1994 (Newfoundland), 2002 (Saskatoon) and 2012 (Whitehorse). Timm admitted familiarity may be a curse in the eyes of some voters but be believes Surrey’s strengths will outweigh any thoughts that it’s time for someone else to host it. “We know that will be seen as a drawback and may create some voter fatigue for some delegates to vote for Canada again,” he said. “We have to promote the strengths of our host committee rather than just saying, ‘Come to Canada.’”

High school basketball

Warriors are used to pressure ‹ from page 43 White Rock knows they carry a target on their backs for every team hoping to score an upset. Shury said such pressure is nothing new for the Warriors. “I think we have a bull’s-eye on our back all the time; we’re used to that now,” Shury quipped. “Just based on the nature of the program and our history gets other teams up for our games. The bull’s-eye stuff will be more obvious when we get to the main draw at the LEC (Langley Events Centre).” In the Fraser Valley central zone final, Lord Tweedsmuir surprised Enver Creek 75-63 to earn the seventh seed in the Valley.

Enver dropped to ninth in the seedings. Fleetwood Park (16) is the only other Surrey or North Delta team to crack the top half of the Fraser Valley seedings. The bottom half of the draw includes North Delta (17), North Surrey (18), Fraser Heights (19), Elgin Park (20), Seaquam (22), Panorama Ridge (23), Semiahmoo (26), Johnston Heights (27), Queen Elizabeth (28), L.A. Matheson (29) and Clayton Heights (32). Round two of the Fraser Valley tourney goes Friday night followed by round three Monday. For scores and schedules, please visit fvbball.org.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Rest, lie low, deal with head office, government agencies, institutions, charitable and spiritual organizations. Start no new projects nor relationships before March 17. Instead, reprise (or fix) the old, or stick with the ongoing. Sunday’s filled with beauty and pleasant notions, but your advances might be playfully steered aside. Tackle overdue work Monday/Tuesday. Relationships prove important midweek – a great conversation (or news article) and a spiritual awakening or dreamy state occur. Seek changes, health diagnosis, realistic investments and/or intimacy Friday/Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Your popularity grows. Optimism, wish fulfillment, light romance and entertainment increase this week and the next few. Old friends return, old wishes are granted, and former flirty, light romantic contacts reappear. New friends and new projects, if started now to March 16, will tend to twirl brightly for awhile, then fizzle. Sunday’s for home, garden, rest, and rejuvenation. Romance calls Monday/Tuesday – your creative, speculative and expressive skills rise up. Tackle familiar chores midweek. If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em Friday/ Saturday – great things come from partnering! Gemini May 21-June 20: Start no new projects, ventures or relationships before March 17. Until then, protect ongoing projects, especially in career and dealings with authorities. They, and bosses, and parents, are gripped by indecision until then. Be ambitious (not ambiguous). Shore up your position, secure recent advances, Monday/Tuesday – or rest and nurture family, for they are the support for your ambitions. Earlier, Sunday’s for short trips, friends and curiosity. Romance and creativity lure you Wednesday/Thursday: but they conflict with your need to grow. You get a lot of work done Friday/Saturday.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2013

Cancer June 21-July 22: Chase money, buy/ sell Sunday – garage sales intrigue. (Don’t buy anything big and important.) Short trips, details, communications and paperwork fill Monday/Tuesday (avoid government forms). Focus on home, kids, real estate, security and nutrition midweek. Friday/ Saturday hold romantic/creative success– which fits superbly into February/March’s broad cycle of love, cultural rituals, far travel, wisdom and higher learning. You could fall in love! But remember: start nothing, project nor relationship, before March 17. The best romance is ongoing, or is embodied in an old flame. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: You’ve entered the realm of mystery, lust, health diagnosis and hidden power plays. Something might return from the past in this arena – perhaps a former sexy playmate, perhaps a chance to live a lifestyle you once hungered for, perhaps a former investment opportunity. DO research, ask questions, follow the mystery, and deal with ongoing situations/people or those returning from the past. DON’T start a new relationship, project, investment or venture. All this, to March 17. You’re the subtle star Sunday. Chase money Monday/ Tuesday. Paperwork, errands midweek. Home, family Friday on. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: DON’T start new projects or relationships before March 17. Stick with the ongoing, and situations that return from the past – including a possible return of a former partner or someone you wished was. However, this few-week interval seems designed more to make you ponder the big picture of relationships, than to re-instate an old one permanently. It’s as if you’re on a bridge to a very different land of love, and are stalled: not to turn you back, but to make you think. Lie low Sunday. Tackle everything with confidence Monday/Tuesday. Money, midweek. Casual friends late week.

Feb. 24 - Mar. 2, 2013

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Much work faces you, but tackle only routine, ongoing or formerly neglected chores before March 17. DON’T start big new projects, employ new staff, nor buy machinery, tools, computers – lemons abound. A former job might be offered. If you’re seeking employment, canvas former bosses. Sunday’s bright, hopeful, happy. Retreat and rest Monday/Tuesday -- government-related tasks go well. (Though they, too, face delay.) Your energy and pizzazz return strongly midweek, but luck (in love, learning, law and travel) mixes with domestic problems. Your money luck soars Friday/Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: This week goes from better to best! (But don’t be tempted to start a new project or relationship before March 17.) Sunday’s for ambition and community reputation: elevate yours by joining, helping. Optimism, popularity, wish fulfillment and general delight fill Monday/Tuesday: an old flame or flirty friend could reappear . You’re on a month-long winning streak of romance, creativity, sports or pleasure. You can renew contacts on many levels, including business. Retreat midweek to rest and contemplate. Your energy and charisma soar Friday/Saturday – you’ll succeed, attract love. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Don’t start new projects or relationships before March 17, Sage, especially in family, domestic, nutrition, real estate, retirement or security zones. (E.g., you could find new renovations have left no room for the basement stairs.) Stick to ongoing projects, or situations from the past. Clear away neglected home-related chores. Sunday’s mellow, thoughtful, cultural. Show your ambition Monday/Tuesday (but start nothing new!). Happiness, optimism and friends fill midweek. Success assured with institutions, government, meditation, rest, health and research Friday/Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Start nothing new before March 17, Cap, especially in mail, computer, telephony, office systems, stationery, or travel. Don’t buy a car or any equipment. You might rediscover a lost book, letter, photo – or an entire “lost acquaintance.” (Don’t invest too heavily in the last.) Sunday’s secrets will open, if you diplomatically push. A mellow, understanding mood flows over you Monday/Tuesday – love (or the hope of love) is possible! Be ambitious midweek, display your skills: luck accompanies you. Social delights, popularity, light romance succeed splendidly Friday/Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Money’s just an abstract way to mete out power, security, position, food, shelter, clothing, medical, dental...and most love is entwined with these. So chase money now to March 19, Aquarius. You won’t be neglecting love, but supporting it. But don’t start a new project or venture. Stick with ongoing dollar situations, or reprise those from the past. (E.g., sell an old article, or seek a job where you worked before.) Sunday’s made exciting by a sensual person. Sex, secrets and finances, Monday/Tuesday. Understanding, mellow love midweek. Ambition, career Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your energy, luck and charisma remain high, Pisces. Remember, start nothing before March 17. Until then, you’ll remain indecisive about goals, partnerships, opportunities, relocation, and love. Stick with ongoing projects, or reprise old ones – avoid the new. Everything’s smooth this week. Chores call Sunday. Relationships, opportunities and goals arise Monday/Tuesday – though excitement occurs, remember: no new links or projects. Life’s mysteries emerge midweek, but hold few rewards if you solve them. Friday/Saturday bring gentle love, intellectual venues and superb luck. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808

As crash regs changed, so did the MGB, although not to everyone’s satisfaction. Later versions such as this one were fitted with rubber bumper extensions and a taller ride height. These perceived shortcuts were not well received.

Fine Lines

MGB was all about freedom Malcolm Gunn

Wheelbase Media

Next to riding a motorcycle, driving – or riding – in an MGB with the top down is the closest you’ll come to automotive nirvana. The heady mix of leather, gasoline and motor oil, combined with whatever natural or man-made odours waft by your nostrils is a seductive automotive opiate. In this age of synthetic-laden interiors, bank vault passenger compartments and well dampened road/engine noises, cars such as the MGB are as out of step with the times as dancing the jitterbug at a Coldplay concert. In its day, however, the MGB was considered so advanced that it created much consternation among the sports car “purists.” When the first car rolled off its Abingdon, England, assembly line in 1962, the public was shocked to find a car with several new features. Real doors, for example. That is to say doors with inside and outside handles ... and glass that rolled up ... and down. There was also a padded dash and a roomy, comfortable cockpit. All of these “features” were firsts for the venerable MG series of roadsters that can trace their roots back to the late 1920s (the name MG stands for Morris Garages, where the cars were first built). The MGB’s unitized construction (with the frame integrated into the body) was also a departure from the tradition of separate ladder-type frames. The Pininfarina-influenced (the Italian design studio that puts forth creations for Ferrari) styling was more see SHORTCUTS › page 55

AUTOMOTIVE Fine lines

Shortcuts to meet regs was MGB’s downfall ‹ from page 52 nondescript than earlier MGs, but was nicely proportioned and honest in a conservative sort of way. Though nontraditional in content and structure, the MGB still carried over some key elements from its MGA predecessor. The standard-issue 98horsepower 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine was a bored-out carry over from the powerplant first developed in 1955. The suspension – independent coil springs in front with leaf springs supporting a solid rear axle – was also derived from the earlier car. Although improved over the MGA, not all was perfect for the MGB, in fact, far from it in some cases. The most cantankerous “feature” was the difficult-to-operate top. The process of securing the snug-fitting snaps while wrestling with the frame supports was an unpleasant experience at best. Many MGB owners opted for the available fiberglass hardtop for off-season protection, while diehard drivers employed the standard tonneau cover, even during monsoonstrength downpours. And with the old MGA’s suspension, there was little to brag about in the ride department. The first MGBs imported to North America sold for about $2,500. Aside from the removable hardtop, extra-cost options included wire wheels, “Laycock de Normanville” overdrive and an AM radio. It didn’t take long for the word to spread that the inexpensive MGB was not only a blast to drive, but out-handled and out-braked (front discs were standard) just about anything else around. True, the car was no rocket, but with zeroto-60 mph (96 km/h) times of less than 12 seconds, it was no early-

1960s slouch either. That would be a couple of seconds behind a modern compact car. The roadster model was followed in 1965 by MGBGT, which was a gracefully styled 2+2 hatchback that added a measure of practicality to the car’s sporting nature. Both models were eagerly snapped up by an increasing fan base, earning it the number-one position in the British Motor Corporation’s – the MGB’s maker – stable of sports cars that also included Triumph Spitfire and TR4. The Mark II version of the MGB arrived in 1967. Although there were few exterior changes, the engine was upgraded for smoother operation and greater durability and a seldom seen automatic transmission was added to the options list. Sadly, the fall of the MGB began in 1969 when mandatory emissions equipment began gutting performance. By 1974, further indignities were foisted on the MGB in the form of hideouslooking crash bumpers. Instead of redesigning a new front end, British Leyland, the MG’s newly amalgamated parent, tacked on a rubberylooking nose and rear bumper cover, then hiked the car a couple of inches to meet the mandated bumper height. What was once an elegant swan had been turned into an ugly duckling. Devotees of the marque became disillusioned that the company would take such quick-fix shortcuts that basically ruined the car’s good looks. British Leyland experimented with the MGB’s emissions-stifled power supply, installing an inline six-cylinder in place of the fourcylinder and rebadging it the MGC. The result, however, proved less

than satisfying in the handling department and it was abandoned after two years. The emasculated and outgunned MGB amazingly soldiered on until 1980 when it was finally retired from battle after an 18-year run. By that time, more than 500,000 of them, including 150,000 GTs

had been produced, outselling the MGA by more than 400,000. In its prime, the MGB proved to be an excellent introduction into the world of sports cars. Its wide stance and low centre of gravity gave it excellent handling, and its sturdy engine earned numerous accolades. The car’s lengthy production

cycle not only ensures a good supply of spare parts, but has helped to keep it within affordable reach of the average hobbyist. For unabashed driving pleasure, the MGB was much more than a transportation device. It was the embodiment of a lifestyle that focused on spirited, wind-in-

the-face driving that left the owners of more mundane sedans and station wagons green with envy. Malcolm Gunn is a feature writer with Wheelbase Media, which supplies automotive news and features to newspapers across North America.

Once upon a time, the MGB represented motoring fun and freedom in the purest sense.

AUTOMOTIVE Fine Lines

Ford’s Edsel still a joke There’s an oft-told adage: if you haven’t failed at something, you haven’t tried hard enough to succeed at anything. A perfect case in point is the Edsel, a car – a whole line of cars, actually – that epitomizes failure on a particularly grand scale. After two brief years in production and untold millions spent on engineering, tooling and marketing, the misunderstood Edsel flamed out in spectacular fashion. The public seemed to enjoy the spectacle of watching Ford tripping over its corporate shoelaces. The Edsel became an international joke with a punchline that reverberates to this day. Named for Henry Ford’s son (who died in 1943), the Edsel should have been a magnificent success. After all, it was conceived at a time when the North American automobile industry was operating at full capacity, churning out cars and trucks in record numbers. With only upstart Volkswagen plus a few other pipsqueak importers to worry about, it was full speed ahead and clear sailing for Detroit. Fifty years ago, developing another product line to satisfy the incessant demand for more cars was a natural thing to do. In Ford’s executive suite, the decision was made to create a mid-priced car positioned between its rank-and-file models and its expensive Lincolns. The Edsel line was to be comparable in price to Mercury, but be a bit more daring and flamboyant to attract similar buyers. With a host of standard and available accessories, including powerful V8 engines, the Edsel was also designed to make the Ford Motor Company buckets and buckets of money.

The leaks to the press as well as the teaser ads in the media hinted that something different from Ford would appear in the fall of 1957, but few observers were ready for what was unveiled. From the back and sides, the new 1958 Edsel was genuinely appealling. The grille, however, was another matter. Stuck between the front fenders was a monstrous chromed appendage that would become a source of humour for years. It really wasn’t all that bad considering the age-ofexcess 1950s. In fact, some competing vehicles looked much more garish. The media saw it differently, though, and thwacked their audience’s funny bones with derisive comments about the Edsel’s “horse-collar” grille that appeared like “an Oldsmobile sucking a lemon.” Other comments were even less flattering. Still, the Edsel charged forward. In its initial year, a whopping 18 models bore the name of Henry Ford’s male heir, including the Citation, Corsair, Pacer and Ranger coupes, sedans and hardtops and Bermuda, Villager and Roundup wagons. Citations and Corsairs were muscled with 345-horsepower 410cubic-inch V8s, while 303-horse 361-cube engines powered Pacer and Ranger models. Among the more unique items initially integrated into the design was a Teletouch Drive automatic transmission with control buttons located inside the steeringwheel hub. There was also a rotating-drum speedometer that spun like an aircraft directional compass and changed colour the faster you drove. Ford predicted 100,000 Edsel sales in the first year, but the final tally of 63,100 fell short

of the mark. Pundits and prognosticators, both of the professional and armchair variety, let loose with we-toldyou-so remarks. The Edsel was also becoming a staple of stand-up comedians everywhere. The company bravely tried to regroup for the 1959 model year, with fewer models that shared

for the debacle is one that has been and will continue to be debated for years. Its ultimate and predictable fate lead to some interesting changes at the very top of the Ford empire as well as the dismissal of Ford’s advertising agency. It caused much doubt to be cast as to the accuracy and effectiveness of consumer-based surveying methods and focus groups (both still popular today) and it led to much bitterness

and bruised feelings at the dealership level. Then there was the Edsel name, an awkward and unglamorous handle chosen from among 6,000 submissions, that failed to click with car shoppers. Finally, Ford’s launch of its new baby couldn’t have come at a worse time. The brief but biting recession of 1958 hurt Edsel and nearly every other nameplate. Given the conditions of the time, rookie-season sales of the Edsel weren’t

that terrible. The Edsel really had a chance, and a good one, of becoming a success. What really stopped it cold in its tracks was that unusual piece of shiny nosework artistry that bore the brunt, literally as well as figuratively, of all that was wrong with the car. Ultimately, it sealed the Edsel’s fate for good. Malcolm Gunn is a feature writer with Wheelbase Media. See www.shiftweekly.com.

WE’VE

Japan’s Mazda Miata a better British roadster If you want to know when the retrorevolution in new-car design began, look no further than the Mazda Miata, the little roadster that turned an aging design into a modern art form. We’ve all seen Miatas. For years now those small, two-seat, cute-as-abug-in-a-rug convertibles have been seen cruising busy freeways, bounding along twitchy two-lane rural roads and darting in and out of traffic as if weaving some imaginary giant basket. Since 1989, the Miata has meant magic to drivers of relatively modest means. And it has done so with a style all its own... sort of. Since its inception, few automakers have dared market such a specialized transportation module at such an attractive price. More competitors came along, such as the Pontiac Solstice, but Mazda had a 15-year headstart. Over the years, it’s easy to forget the frenzy caused by the Miata’s arrival in 1989. The car was actually visually modelled after a 1960s-vintage Lotus Elan, an admittedly cute looking but poorly constructed machine that was fragile in the extreme and lacked any semblance of interior space. The Elan seemed a less than ideal example of a sports car to emulate. However, members of Mazda’s California design team wisely looked past the Lotus’s shortcomings. They correctly surmised that if the nostalgic look would evoke fond memories of the good old days (after all, how many people have actually driven a Lotus Elan), then the Miata’s modern-day character, backed by then state-of-theart mechanical components, highquality fit and finish and affordable price would certainly help clinch the deal. Mazda also possessed considerable sports-car production experience. The rotary-powered RX-7 had been a big hit since 1978, although it had shifted to the premium end of the price scale. This allowed the Miata to sell in a more popular price range and in a category all but abandoned by the world’s automakers. Those early MX-5 Miatas, the car’s full name, were immediately gobbled up by hungry customers who had fallen hard for the car’s retro looks and bargain-basement sticker. In fact, as demand far exceeded supply, price gouging and quick-flip resales added thousands to the prices paid by many buyers. Regardless of the amount spent to obtain a Miata, everyone came away happy. The car delivered on all its promises and then some. It was

comfortable, the gauges were easy to read and the control-panel knobs and switches were straightforward and close at hand. The manual-folding soft top could be easily raised or lowered by one person who remained sitting inside. Mechanically, the Miata’s reliable 116-horsepower 1.6-litre DOHC four-cylinder engine and slick-shifting five-speed manual transmission delivered spirited, although hardly rapid performance, producing zero-to60-mph (96 km/h) times of about nine seconds. Most importantly, though, Miatas were a ball to drive. They could be tossed around corners with abandon and not lose composure and their surefooted disc brakes were there to bail out drivers who let their exuberance get the better of them. Mazda’s something-for-everyone approach with the Miata also extended to an options list that included air conditioning, power windows, cruise control, anti-lock brakes, alloy wheels and a lightweight removable hard top. One unusual extra was an automatic transmission, a feature that’s still available today but one totally out of keeping with the car’s sporting image. First-year 1990 Miata sales topped 40,000, an excellent achievement for such a limited-purpose car. Complaints were few and far between with most centring on the car’s lack of power. For the truly committed, the automotive aftermarket rushed in to supply turbochargers and other powerenhancing accessories. Over the years, Mazda kept the Miata pot boiling by regularly increasing engine displacement and horsepower, in addition to adding an available sixspeed manual shifter. More than 750,000 Miatas were built before the Miata name was shed for production of the larger and more powerful MX-5 for the 2006 model year. Whether Mazda thought the Miata handle had run its course or that it was just too cute and ran counter to the direction of the new car is a matter of some speculation. But interestingly, the Lotus Elan was not the focus for the redesign, but the Miata itself, which has created a much larger and more loyal following than the British car could ever have hoped to muster. In that respect, the Miata is so significant that it has surpassed the very car it was intended to emulate. Malcolm Gunn is a feature writer with Wheelbase Media.

Lying to save $801 costs couple $200K share with Tom Zytaruk

Now staff Twitter @tomzytaruk

They say cheaters never prosper. Here’s a good example why. A Surrey couple who lied to ICBC in an

attempt to avoid paying $801 in deductible and increased premium costs related to a Newton traffic crash are now on the hook for more than $200,000 after their deceit was exposed. Amarjeet Panag was driving her kids home from Khalsa School in Newton in 2006 when she crashed her husband Bahadur Panag’s Chevrolet Malibu into a Dodge van at 72nd Avenue and 130th Street.

It was a serious collision, causing significant injury and damage. The court heard that Mr. Panag talked a friend, Harinder Grewal, into fraudulently passing himself off as an independent witness to the collision, in their favour. But ICBC sussed this out. After finding Mrs. Panag entirely liable for the crash, ICBC concluded that she and her husband were guilty of fraud and, because

of that, their own car insurance coverage was forfeit. The insurance corporation determined the Panags were liable for the $188,772.86 it paid out in claims related to the crash and went after them in court. A trial was held in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver and Justice Christopher Grauer found in ICBC’s favour. see ICBC FRAUD › page 9

Often, we need therapeutic assistance. 3 Acute and chronic pain can both be treated successfully with Laser Therapy. 4 It’s better to eliminate the cause of your pain than momentarily medicate the symptom. 5 Don’t ignore pain. It’s your body’s signal that something is wrong and that you should find a solution.

M

aria was taking pain medication for pain in her left elbow. The soreness kept her up at nights and prevented her from driving or even holding a cup of tea. But after only five Laser Therapy treatments, she stopped taking all medication. By her tenth session, she was back to normal. Maria’s story is not unusual for LaserHealth® Solutions, which provides Laser Therapy treatment in Surrey, Calgary, and Winnipeg. Laser Therapy has proven to be a fast and effective solution to a wide variety of soft tissue injuries, including whiplash, tendonitis, arthritis, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff injuries, ankle and knee sprains, sciatica, and tennis and golfer’s elbow. This form of treatment doesn’t mask the pain of an injury. Rather, it treats the injury directly by activating biochemical energy and accelerating the healing process. Laser Therapy works directly at the cellular level to help resolve inflammation quickly. The effectiveness of Laser Therapy varies from patient to patient, but after just a few weeks of treatment most patients report they are pain-free and have returned to

his family doctor and other specialists, but nothing helped eradicate the pain. When he first heard about Laser Therapy he was skeptical, he said: “The notion of lasers blasting away my pain seemed unreal.” But after a few treatments of Laser Therapy, the pain had disappeared. Ben admits he’s not sure of how Laser Therapy works, “I just know it worked for me!” So, how does Laser Therapy work? Skin, muscles, cartilage, ligaments and tendons absorb the red and infrared light. This stimulates cells, increasing their metabolism and regenerating healthy tissue. Laser Therapy provides cells with more energy, resulting in the resolution of inflammation, reduced scar tissue formation, increased lymphatic drainage and improved vascular circulation. This is a non-invasive treatment, as there are no needles used in this treatment. As well, because this is Cold Laser technology, there is no cutting or burning. The treatment is backed up by scientific research. Over 2,500 research studies that have been conducted on Laser Therapy. World-renowned cellular biologist Dr.

Mary Dyson has extensively published papers related to Laser Therapy research. She’s found that cells can increase their repair rate six to eight times when exposed to specific wavelengths of light. Many professional athletes benefit from treatments at LaserHealth® Solutions. Maria and Ben’s stories are among 340 patient testimonials listed on the company’s website: www.laserhealth.ca. The site also includes video demonstrations of patients receiving treatment and a more comprehensive explanation of Laser Therapy. To find out if Laser Therapy is right for you, call the Surrey clinic at 604-5751331 to book a consultation and assessment. The effectiveness of Laser Therapy varies from patient to patient.

Surrey land will help balance budget

Reliance on asset sales to prop up budget is like selling family’s jewels to buy groceries, Ralston says Tom Zytaruk

Now staff Twitter @tomzytaruk

The Liberal government is planning to sell off several public assets in Surrey to help balance the budget it delivered Tuesday. These include two vacant lots near 192nd Street, a former elementary school, a former school board office, and six hectares of vacant land in the Panorama neighbourhood. “It’s not sustainable,” Surrey-Whalley NDP MLA Bruce Ralston said of the government’s reliance on asset sales to prop up Tuesday’s budget. “The Liberals’ primary fix is to sell off our valuable assets in a onetime fire sale without proper consideration for the benefits of not selling. It is only a one-time fix that does nothing for future budgets. “It’s clear the Liberals have run out of ideas,” Ralston said. In February 2012, the provincial government announced that it would sell off 15 acres of prime land in Sullivan,

Bruce Ralston

Anita Huberman

at Highway 10 and 152nd Street, which had been earmarked for health-care development under the Surrey Official Community Plan’s South Newton Neighbourhood Concept Plan. At the time, Ralston likened it to selling the family’s jewels to buy groceries. The government says it already has sales agreements underway on 16 of 100 properties it hopes will generate $625 million for B.C. “It’s not clear it will actually happen,” the NDP finance critic said. Anita Huberman, CEO of the Surrey Board of Trade, echoed that. “The challenge for the government will be to sell them.” Finance Minister Mike de Jong said that starting next January there will be a “temporary” two-year increase in the personal income tax rate on income above $150,000 a year. “With this budget, we are also asking

those individuals who have a little more to contribute a little more.” Huberman expects higher income earners – those who make more than $150,000 a year – will “not be entirely happy” with their personal income tax going up by 2.1 per cent or the general corporate income tax rate raising to 11 per cent from 10. That said, Huberman’s assessment of the budget is “thumbs up in general” because, she said, it contained a “reasoned and pragmatic” approach in tough economic times. Some might say the government has taken a page out of the NDP’s playbook by raising taxes on the rich this time around. Huberman finds it “kind of like” U.S. President Obama asking the wealthy to help rather than a Robin Hood-style grab from the rich. Ralston sees it differently. “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery,” he noted. Premier Christy Clark will be in Surrey this morning (Thursday) for her “Premier’s Provincial Budget Breakfast,” hosted by the Surrey Board of Trade at Eaglequest Golf Course in Newton. Will Clark receive applause over this budget, or a get an earful instead? “It’s hard to say,” Huberman replied, “because there will be a lot of big business there. I really don’t know.” tzytaruk@thenownewspaper.com

Highlights

P

rovincial Finance Minister Mike de Jong says the budget he delivered Tuesday, which covers the next three years, is a “modest, responsible and achievable plan.” Some highlights: ❚ Effective Jan. 1, 2014, Medical Service Plan premiums will increase by four per cent. B.C. is the only province that charges health-care premiums. ❚ Also starting on Jan. 1, 2014, the government will impose a “temporary” two-year personal income tax rate increase on income above $150,000 a year. The rate will increase by 2.1 per cent. ❚ Under education, 500 more teachers will be hired, at a cost of $37 million, and $17.3 million will be devoted to special education, increasing hours of work for more than 7,400 existing assistants and placing more than 400 new teacher assistants in schools.

White Rock

Whale skeleton is Island-bound But not before nature’s carnivores help clean humpback carcass share with Christopher Poon

Now staff Twitter @questionchris

The skeleton of this humpback whale, which washed up in White Rock, will be put on display at the Whale Interpretive Centre at Telegraph Cove. (Photo: NOW FILE)

The skeleton of the humpback whale that washed up in White Rock last summer has found a home at the Whale Interpretive Centre at Telegraph Cove on Vancouver Island. However, it will still be some time before the whale’s remains will be on display for the public, as nature is still having its way with the humpback’s remains, said Paul Cottrell, pacific marine mammal co-ordinator for the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. “So the whale was taken out of White Rock and what we did was

arrange for a tug to take it out to Telegraph Cove, which is near Port McNeil,” said Cottrell. “Then we collected the stomach for analysis and the remaining bones were put in an underwater covering and carnivorous life are eating away at it, so hopefully this time next year it will be ready for the next stage, which will be cleaning off the bones and drying them.” Following that, Cottrell said the skeleton will then be prepared for public display at the centre, where it will join the remains of other marine mammals. “The Whale Interpretive Centre is a non-profit group that has an amazing marine collection,” said Cottrell, “They’ve got a fin whale, a killer whale, a grey whale, but they didn’t have a humpback whale. It’s probably one of the best institutions in Canada for marine mammal skeleton specimens and this is definitely going to be a big piece for their museum.” As for how the centre took

ownership of the remains, Cottrell said there really weren’t a lot of options. “It’s not a simple thing to take responsibility for, because (humpbacks are) a threatened species so the remains have to be used for education or research, that’s the only exemption for possession for a skeleton of a threatened species,” said Cottrell. Cottrell says he hopes residents of coastal cities such as White Rock will be on the lookout for whales and other marine life to prevent something like another whale beaching itself. “We always like to encourage people to call 1-800-465-4336, the marine mammal response number, if anyone sees a distressed, tangled or injured mammal,” said Cottrell. “It’s calls from citizens that really make our program work and while it was too late for this one, the more eyes and ears we have out there the better chance we have at getting to an animal before it gets too bad.” cpoon@thenownewspaper.com

A homicide investigation is underway after a woman who was beaten in Whalley more than two months ago died earlier this week. Janice Shore, 43, had been in a coma since the Dec. 2 attack. A passerby found her in a vacant lot in the 13500-block of 106th Avenue. The Surrey RCMP came under some criticism at the time for not alerting the public about the attack until two days after Shore had been found.

Cops to hear fate Two Surrey police officers accused of assaulting a 73-year-old man at Surrey Memorial Hospital in 2010 will learn on March 6 if the case against them will be stayed or if it will go to trial on April 2. Surrey RCMP Const. Mitchell Spears and Transit Police Const. Ken Jansen pleaded not guilty Monday to assaulting Robert Keith Booker, now 77, on April 22, 2010. The Crown alleges Booker was assaulted and Tasered during an unprovoked attack.

Immigrants have ally Program aims to help newcomers find work Jacob Zinn

Now contributor Twitter @jacobzinn

The City of Surrey – along with 21 community organizations – is working to develop a program to help immigrants and refugees find work. Surrey is one of 50 cities in B.C. taking on the Welcoming Communities Program (WCP), which aims to make the local workforce inclusive for foreign newcomers. WelcomeBC, a framework within the provincial government that provides services to new immigrants, has contributed $667,000 toward the initiative under the agreement that the funding is used by March 31, 2014. The city, which is the sponsoring organization of the local program, recently discussed its action plan with representatives from the Surrey Board of Trade and Progressive Intercultural Community Services (PICS), among

other groups. Charan Gill, CEO of PICS, said immigrants and refugees face difficulties finding jobs in Surrey, even when they have experience and education from their home countries. “Especially for refugees, it’s a big issue because they don’t know how to network, how to go around, how to do interviews, how to write a resumé,” he said, listing other issues such as language barriers and a lack of knowledge of the community. “For immigrants, sometimes the credentials aren’t accepted,” he added. “They don’t know their qualifications, they don’t know what their experience is, so we have to teach them, give them a chance, open the door and see how they do.” The program will teach immigrants and refugees the skills they need to obtain positions in the local workforce. The provincial government estimated that skilled immigrants will be needed to fill one-third of approximately 1.1 million job openings across B.C. in the next 10 years. jacobzinn@gmail.com

A Surrey man who was convicted of sexual assault in 2005 is the victim of a miscarriage of justice, a special prosecutor says. Police have issued a public apology for “the mistakes that were made.” Gurdev Singh Dhillon was sentenced in 2005 to four years in prison after being convicted in a case where two men raped a woman in a basement suite in Surrey. No DNA tests were done. Dhillon appealled the conviction and sentence in 2006, arguing that the trial judge erred by relying on the victim’s in-court identification, but the B.C. Court of Appeal upheld the conviction. On Wednesday, the Criminal Justice Branch announced that Special Prosecutor

Peter Wilson has since concluded that Dhillon had fallen victim to a miscarriage of justice. Chief Supt. Bill Fordy, in charge of the Surrey RCMP, issued a public apology Wednesday. He said in August 2011, Surrey RCMP sexual offence investigators reviewed the case and determined the initial investigation “did not sufficiently consider additional avenues regarding other potential suspects. They also determined this information was not shared with Crown counsel or with defence counsel during the original trial,” Fordy said. Meanwhile, Mohammed Zaaid Ukhttar and Sital Singh Bhatti were charged with sexual assault on Feb. 12, in connection with this case, and are to appear in Surrey provincial court on April 5.

Caterer likes liquor law changes Carolyn Cooke

Now staff Twitter @carolyncooke1

A Surrey caterer is applauding changes to the province’s liquor laws that she says will be good for both business and people planning big events. Lisa Houweling, caterer and a director with McJac’s Roadhouse Grille in South Surrey, said the change will make for more profitable businesses and also happier customers.

The change, announced by the provincial government earlier this month, now allows caterers to get a special occasion liquor licence for events for which they’re hired. Up to now, caterers were not allowed to get these liquor licences nor to serve alcohol at events, even if their people were qualified. And as Houweling noted, liquor is generally the more profitable side of a restaurant business, and will help businesses such as the Roadhouse,

Earth to Surrey: you missed the sports boat ViewFrom TheCheap Seats Michael Booth

S

urrey’s municipal government is still months away from moving into its shiny new city offices in the heart of Whalley, but it sounds like some of the decision makers have been sampling the wares offered by the freelance pharmacists who dwell in the area. Either that, or it’s time for the RCMP to take a closer look at what sort of plants are growing in the gardens around the current city hall. I say this after the city stated its desire to “advance Surrey as a leader in the industry and premier destination for regional and international sporting events.” Is this some kind of joke? To put this delicately, when it comes to hosting major sporting events, Surrey is like a wayward traveller standing at the pier with a pair of suitcases and looking longingly at the ocean hours

after the ship has sailed. The city can blather on about all the wonderful amenities available to residents and, indeed, there are plenty of recreational opportunities in Surrey with well maintained ice arenas, swimming pools, community centres, playing fields, cricket pitches, ball diamonds and skate parks. Heck, there’s even a kabaddi field. Surrey has one of the youngest populations in the province with more than 1,000 people moving here each month, many of them families who make use of these spaces. But if the goal is to attract major events of regional, national and international significance, then there’s a problem. The only indoor facility of any size is South Surrey Arena, which seats roughly 1,000 spectators and, as I understand it, can only be used for ice-based events. Apparently the building is not equipped with a sprinkler system over the playing surface, which precludes using the facility for dry floor sporting

events. When we move outdoors, the landscape becomes truly jarring. The city wants to welcome the world to major sporting events in a place that doesn’t even have the most rudimentary stadium facilities. Having friends and family risk slivers and wet bums by sitting on the weathered, mossy planks of the “temporary bleachers” – 20 years and counting – of Bear Creek Park is fine for a one-off communitybased event like the B.C. Summer Games. But does such a dilapidated structure make the grade when you’re aspiring to be “a leader in the industry and premier destination” for sporting events? Surrey’s dishonour roll as a sports venue is not a short one. The PGA Tour’s Air Canada Championship and the Canadian Tour’s Surrey Open have both come and gone, but the loss of those events was tied more to sponsorship dollars than the superb hosting golf courses.

WLA lacrosse – gone. B.C. junior lacrosse – gone. B.C. junior football – gone. And the main cause cited by the teams at their departure was the need for suitable facilities in the city. Of course, Surrey did take a stab at building a stadium, but all the resulting Stetson Bowl debacle did was stain the resumés of every person associated with the project – including the players on the one-and-done Surrey Glaciers baseball team. The lone glimmer of success rests with softball, a sport that has established an international home in Surrey through events like the Canada Cup and the Canadian Open and is currently in the running to bring the world championships here in 2016. It must be noted, however, that the centrepiece for the Surrey bid is Softball City, a facility that was built with private dollars way back in the 1990s. Unfortunately for Surrey, the time to act on the goal of becoming a sports

destination of note was back when those sodden planks in Bear Creek Park still smelled of fresh sawdust. At that time, there were no ice arenas in the Lower Mainland that seated more than 2,000 spectators unless you wanted to boost your bottom line by renting the Pacific Coliseum. Outdoors, there was just Swangard Stadium in Burnaby, Thunderbird Stadium at UBC and not a lot else. That was the time for Surrey to act and build the kind of venues that would create a sporting culture to draw the bigger events to town. Need proof? Check out Kamloops, a smaller Interior city that built facilities at that time and has since been able to brand itself as Canada’s tournament destination. Sorry to break this to Surrey officials, but it’s now too late. Today there are gleaming multi-use sports palaces in Burnaby, Richmond, Langley, Abbotsford and Coquitlam. Anyone looking to host a

sports event in an outdoor stadium without the need for a tetanus shot can consider venues in Coquitlam, Burnaby and Abbotsford. Surrey does not have the facilities to accommodate any event that draws larger crowds and to build them now would be creating a glut of such buildings in the region. Why build a new 5,000-seat arena or outdoor stadium when there are similar shiny new structures less than five miles away in Langley? All Surrey would be creating is redundant buildings that will make it even more difficult to compete for the events needed to make such structures financially viable. Surrey officials would be wise to stick to the recreational pursuits they know best and refrain from sampling those funky little mushrooms growing in the lawn at city hall.

He came here knowing it was monarchy The Editor, Re: “Royal rejection,” the Now, Feb. 14. It is surprising to me that Gurpreet Singh immigrated to a country he is so critical of. He must have known that Canada had a monarchy at the time he immigrated. While it is very generous of him to take on the task of “educating Canadians,” I am sure there is much “educating” to be done in India – certainly too much to list here. I don’t think there is a country in the world that doesn’t have a “nasty past.” The key word here is “past.” Irene Owens, Surrey

ALR land needs more than just lip service The Editor, While a growing majority of Canadians recognize global warming and seek action, the federal government continues to give lip service at best. Here, Metro Vancouver is asking the feds to do the right thing in reining in the Port Authority, which claims unilateral power to change ALR land into industrial use. Speaking with forked tongues, on one hand they claim a desire to protect ALR land, while at the same time they say the industrial lands that remain in the Lower Mainland is “insufficient” for the future of our economy. Doing the right thing requires stepping up to the plate in protection of not just our environment but current and future generational access to safe and viable food sources. The alternative – to remove more land from the ALR – makes a mockery of the original purpose of farmland protection. Worse, it is the poorest form of

modelling for our children, by sending the message that money and development are the only things that really matter. Our children, all of us, deserve better. In the end, we can’t eat money... nor can our children and grandchildren.

The Editor, Most people who oppose the upcoming SkyTrain fare gates seem to have not realized that part of the reason TransLink and the B.C. MOT want to introduce fare gates is so that integration with the upcoming Compass transit fare-card can be achieved. The Compass card and the data it obtains from its ability to track the beginning and end points of all transit trips will spawn huge improvements region-wide in transit service optimization and cost-efficiency, and these are what is going to offset the capital and annual costs of the fare gates. Without the fare gates, there would be no way to figure out what trips occur on SkyTrain and no way to optimize based on those trips. That would be counterproductive, as SkyTrain is a part of so many transit trips in the region. The Compass card concept is the same concept that has already been introduced on the transit system in Montreal, and is used worldwide in transit systems. Once the Compass card becomes a part of our transit system, everyone’s going to have a better experience on transit here in Metro Vancouver. Daryl Dela Cruz, Surrey

Bouquets of red roses to businesses that don’t allow household pets inside their retail stores. Many people are allergic to dog and cat dander. If household pets are wandering around inside your store, it forces people with allergies to drop their shopping and leave. A bunch of roses to the father who waited with me (a senior) while I made a bank transaction early Family Day morning. The location was very open and I felt very vulnerable. He had a young daughter waiting for him in his car. You have shown a good example of kindness to your daughter. Thank you again. A cargo van full of roses to the people who searched for my little dog on Feb. 17. I went to Shoppers with my two little dogs. When I came out of the store, only one was in the car. I was frantic. Many people helped me for 45 minutes to try to find her with no success. I must say it has a happy ending and my dog is home safe and sound – she went to one of my neighbour’s. It restored my faith in humanity. A big thank you to all the people who went out of their way. Two semi trucks full of rotten tomatoes back to the pitbull owner who thinks that drivers who accidentally hit their unleashed, roaming dog should pay for the vet bills. The innocent driver is not responsible for leashing, securing or training your dog not to run out into the street – you are. Shame on you for trying to make someone else pay for your mistakes.

Rotten tomatoes to Radio India’s airwaves. You’ve come to this country, as we all have, for a better life, so leave the baggage behind where it belongs. Don’t poison Canada with events that happened half a world away and 100 years ago. A bouquet of roses to the lifeguards and staff of the South Surrey Pool for providing a Valentine’s Day feast of goodies complete with a cupid and delightful live harp music. Rotten tomatoes to the person who stole the angel from my porch. The right arm had been broken off in the past – I glued it back together because the blowing kiss meant so much to me. It was a memorial to my friend who died from ovarian cancer. She was one of my bridesmaids; I have her on tape blowing us a kiss at my wedding. That angel was special to me. I hope you feel ashamed every time you look at it, maybe even so ashamed you bring it back. Rotten tomatoes to the two cops who were manning a radar trap on 168th Street. If you’re not going to offer the option to have speedometer control in vehicles, then you have no right to be taking away people’s hard-earned money when they go over the imaginary line. If you are really concerned about the safety of the citizens – and are not just cashing in – then you will put this idea into effect immediately. Roses (and kudos) to the entry from Thursday, Jan. 24: “Rotten tomatoes to the losers who still drive way over the speed limit on the Pattullo Bridge.” There isn’t anything wrong with the Pattullo Bridge – the problem is the drivers who drive across it.

50+ years of Gannon on jazz guitar Musician, 69, opens door to his longtime home at Crescent Beach buy tickets with Tom Zillich

Now staff Twitter @tomzillich

It’s amusing to note that the very first concert Oliver Gannon saw, as a preteen in his native Dublin, Ireland, was a show by Bill Haley & His Comets in the mid1950s. “I was in the crowd, screaming with all the rest of the kids,” Gannon recalled with a smile. Of course, Haley is among early stars of the genre to influence a generation of musicians to rock around the clock. But those 4/4 beats didn’t move Gannon so much, because by 1960 it was jazz music, not rock, that gave the teen a jolt when he first picked up an electric guitar, an instrument he’d go on to play for the next five decades. That first guitar, a Gibson ES-125, was a purchase suggested to him by his mother – a real twist on the usual son-mother negotiations of such matters. “So I bought the guitar (in Winnipeg, to which the family had moved) with money I had left over from

tuition fees,” Gannon said. “My dad taught me a few chords by playing them on the piano, so I figured it out that way. It came to me pretty quick.” In conversation at his longtime home in Crescent Beach, Gannon, 69, recalled his long journey in music, from engineering student with a curiosity for electric instruments to semi-retired player still in demand for his six-string skills. “You have to remember that in 1960, the Beatles hadn’t happened yet, so no, I never got overly into rock ‘n’ roll,” Gannon said. “I’m not sure why, but as soon as I started playing, I totally got hooked on jazz, which I knew nothing about – other than from my father (pianist Joe Gannon). It was a great time for jazz, though.” The enthusiastic yet lateblooming Gannon studied the playing of Barney Kessel, considered king of the jazz guitar at the time, and found his way from Manitoba to Berklee school of music in Boston and eventually to Vancouver. For Gannon, the West Coast offered relief from the bitter cold of other Canadian cities that had tempted him

Zany reenactment of ‘The 39 Steps’ in Surrey fashioned hoot.” Patrick Barlow’s comedic adaptation reenacts Alfred Hitchcock’s 1935 mystery film nearly verbatim, but with just four actors. The current Arts Club on Tour production welcomes Jay Hindle to the cast (as lead character Richard Hannay, replacing Martin Happer from the 2010 run in Vancouver), and returning players Diana Coatsworth, Shawn Macdonald and David Marr. Gibson loves the stylish, slightly Pythonesque comedy of The 39 Steps, and jumped on the chance to direct the Arts Club production. The show runs at Surrey Arts Centre from Tuesday, Feb. 26 to Saturday, March 9, with other tour stops in Burnaby, Mission, North Van, Chilliwack, Maple Ridge and Coquitlam. “I’d seen a version of it in New York (prior to 2010), and we were

Director Dean Paul Gibson has a week to “put it all back together again” – a touring version of The 39 Steps, a zany spoof first staged by the Arts Club at its Stanley theatre in the fall of 2010 – and things are going well, apparently. “We’re rehearsing today,” he said in a lunchtime phone interview last Thursday (Feb. 21). “It’s always a good sign for me when the company involved in it – the stage managers and crew and everyone – is laughing. That makes me feel good because I know we’re doing something right, and this show is all about having a good, old-

all quite inspired by the wonderful sort of theatricality of it all, and the sort of poor-man’s-theatre nature of the piece,” Gibson said. “It’s fun to put my own signature on it – I’m not reinventing the wheel here, Tom. Like with all great shows that have universal appeal, like Noises Off and others in the comedic world, that if you follow it (the formula), you’ll be successful, but if you ignore what people have taken great time and care to create, you’re in peril of f***ing up something that is already a recipe for success. So although I’m a chef unto my own, I’m allowed to take some liberties and add some of my own spices, and I don’t mind doing that. Also a big part of that is casting it well, getting the right people and keeping it going.” see › page 18

Arts Club on Tour brings its version of The 39 Steps, a spoof of the Hitchcock movie, to Surrey Arts Centre from Tuesday, Feb. 26 to Saturday, March 9. The show is directed by White Rock-raised Dean Paul Gibson.

Oliver Gannon ‹ from page 15

with residency in the early 1970s. He knew not a soul when he moved here, but Vancouver would welcome him warmly with gigs aplenty, including at the legendary Cave supper club and with the fusion band Pacific Salt. He performed at major jazz festivals in Europe and North America, did multiple tours of the former Soviet Union and earned national accolades for his musicianship. Along the way, Gannon met and married a singer of note named Pat Hervey, who once sang on The Tommy Hunter Show and just celebrated a 40th wedding anniversary with Gannon, on Valentine’s Day. “I’m feeling good – I play golf a lot, usually on Pender Island on the nice little nine-hole course they have there,” Gannon said. “I’m enjoying life now, kind of taking it easy.… I’m a big fan of semi-retirement.” With music, Gannon laments the lack of gigs for professionals on the scene.

“There are not that many gigs, but of those available, I’m still getting my fair share, and I’m really happy about that,” he said. “The gig situation for us jazz musicians in the Lower Mainland and, in fact, all around the world, is dismal right now, for a number of reasons. Here, we have one place, basically, at the Cellar (in Vancouver), and I’m lucky to play there quite often. We could use more jazz clubs, for sure.” Gannon typically keeps himself busy as a for-hire player, and less often as a bandleader; he hasn’t released a CD of music in his own name since the 2006 effort Too Much Guitar. “Historically, I was very much a side man in demand, I’m glad to say, but that kind of makes you lazy because you don’t pick up the phone and try to get your own gigs – everyone else is hiring you! I think deep down, I’m kind of lazy. To have your own group, it takes some get-up-and-go.” This Saturday night (Feb. 23), Gannon brings his quartet to Blue Frog studio in White Rock for a public

concert recording (tickets $35 via www. bluefrogstudios.ca and 604-542-3055). Featured will be Miles Black (“one of the best piano players in the world, really,” Gannon raved), South Surrey-raised Jodi Proznick on bass (“an absolute monster on bass”) and Blaine Wikjord on drums (“he just swings like crazy, a beautiful drummer”). The concert will be recorded “on spec,” Gannon said,“so if everyone feels good about the results, we’ll go to the next step with it.… Jazz is mainly about spontaneity, so maybe at soundcheck that afternoon I’ll give them a list of songs – jazz standards – and those players are so good, you get their creativity. The less you give a person, the more you get out of them, I believe. I’m like the policeman up there calling the tune and counting them off,” he added with a laugh.“We have a great time playing together, and jazz is really about having faith in the other members of the group because we never know what we’re going to do for an ending – or an intro, for that matter.” tzillich@thenownewspaper.com

‹ from page 16 Gibson, a one-time White Rocker and Earl Marriott Secondary grad, has become a go-to director and actor in Vancouver and beyond, most frequently with the Bard on the Beach festival at Vanier Park. “I’ve been very fortunate,” he said. “Theatre has become my life, thankfully. You know, there are days when I’d rather be a barrister or something like that, but it’s been wonderful.” This summer, he won’t

be hands-on with any Bard on the Beach production in Vancouver. “This year is a bit different for me, because I’ll just be working in my role as associate artistic director, so working with Christopher (Gaze) on season planning and whatnot and talking about future seasons,” Gibson said. “I’ll be back directing in 2014 during Bard’s 25th anniversary season. I’m taking a happy summer out of acting and directing

at Bard, so I’ll be able to adjudicate theatre festivals and do some other things and spend some time in London with my partner. I like to shake it up, and it’s good for the health of the company to get some new ideas, too, so it’s refreshing all around.” Tickets for the run of The 39 Steps at Surrey Arts Centre range from $15 to $43, via 604-501-5566 and tickets.surrey.ca. tzillich@ thenownewspaper.com

Helps to activate naturally millions of stem cells from our own bone marrow. The increase in stem cells released from the bone marrow into the blood stream have the potential to become other types of tissue cells with specialized function. Stem cells will multiply and are able to become heart cells, liver cells or any other organ. Located everywhere in our body, stem cells are even under our skin layered between the epidermis and dermis. This is why an increase in stem cells under our skin may help to #63 create a more youthful cell that would replenish elastin and collagen and thus may make us look younger. If our bone marrow does not produce enough stem cells this can result in many illnesses, especially a weak heart, kidneys, liver, pancreas, in fact all healthy functions of our body are decreased. Sufficient stem cells in our body have a great potential of self-repair and the ability to rejuvenate tissues. It does not contain live human stem cells as these can only be transplanted by surgery and are subject to immunosuppressant drugs to avoid graft rejection. Naturopathic Doctor summarized his experience in writing after using this Stem Cell Activator: Used for all organ and tissue damage, heart attack damage, osteo-arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, traumatic brain injury, muscular dystrophy, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, lupus, spinal injuries, and other diseases and tissue damage.

Vancouver may not have secured the Stanley Cup in 98 years, but the glorious metallic mug is getting some ice time in Surrey. Lord Stanleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cup is in town for one day only, this Saturday, Feb. 24. The holy grail of hockey will be on display from noon to 5 p.m. at Surrey Sport & Leisure Complex, 16555 Fraser Hwy. The trophy is touring the country, courtesy of Scotiabank, at open house events that illustrate the history of the sport. The stop at the rec centre, in Fleetwood, will also feature historic artifacts from the Hockey Hall of Fame, interactive games, giveaways and the opportunity to have your photo taken with the silver stein. Surrey is home to a number of current NHLers, including two-time Stanley Cup winner Colin Fraser, currently with Los Angeles Kings.

On the heels of a hot (sold out) “Valentine’s Blues Extravaganza” Saturday with Powder Blues Band and James “Buddy” Rogers, White Rock Blues Society has booked guitarist Bill Johnson at the Pacific Inn Hotel bar for a March 23 concert date. Five years ago, Johnson played a sold-out date at Crescent Beach Legion hall. “His band delivers a tight and powerful sound,” recalled Rod Dranfield, president of the society.

urrey Arts Centre’s main stage sure was rocking with 54-40 on Saturday night, especially during the band’s second set of electric hits – an endless string of them. A significant number of people jumped out of their seats to dance in front of the stage, something rarely seen at the Bear Creek Park venue. During the encore, lead guitarist Dave Genn wore a “SRY” baseball jersey in honour of his roots in Surrey (Crescent Beach, specifically) as the band grooved a mashup of “Love You All” and the Stones’ “Miss You” (which had guest keyboardist Tom Hooper, of Grapes of Wrath fame, on lead vocals doing Mick). Genn’s cool shirt arrived via Don Pitcairn and his headline-making surreyshirts.com website. “We have added a ‘Bands’ section to the top header of our website, looking to promote Surrey bands and others playing in the big city and outfit them with our styling gear,” Pitcairn told me. “Would love to see our merch on stage or in videos, helping to increase pride in Surrey and efforts to reduce or eliminate gun and gang violence.”

Whether your dream home is a Victorian character home in the city, a sleek condo with 360-degree views, or a sprawling rancher in the suburbs, figuring out how much house you can afford is critical before making any decisions. “A helpful place to start is by figuring out your gross debt service (GDS) ratio,” recommends Ron

k_\efne\njgXg\i%Zfd fe\ i\^`fe% fe\ e\njgXg\i% fe\ n\Yj`k\%

Abraham, president of the Ontario Real Estate Association. Gross debt service ratio is a calculation of the total maximum housing payment that you can afford, including your mortgage, property taxes, heating and cooling costs, and condo fees. Figure out your GDS ratio to find out how much house you can afford:

• Add up your gross monthly income and multiply by 32 per cent. This figure is the maximum monthly housing payment that you can afford. It should never exceed 32 per cent of your gross monthly income. • You must also factor in one-time costs and insurance. These include a see › page 35

Warriors nail down top seed Michael Booth

Now staff Twitter @boothnow

The final push for berths in the 2013 B.C. Senior Boys AAA High School Basketball Championships is now underway following completion of the Fraser Valley zone playoffs last weekend. Leading the pack is the White Rock Christian Academy Warriors who secured the No. 1 seed for the Fraser Valley tournament with a dominant 68-50 win over cross-town rival Tamanawis Wildcats in the final of the Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s southwest zone Friday. The game was a rematch of Januaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Surrey RCMP final with a similar result although White Rockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s win this time was more emphatic. The Warriors held the Wildcats to seven points in the first quarter and nine in the second frame in building a massive 33-16 halftime lead. Tamanawis closed to within 10 points in the third quarter but White Rock responded by stretching their lead back to 18 points and then cruising to the win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the most part the damage was done early,â&#x20AC;? said White Rock coach Dale Shury. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you hold a high scoring team like Tamanawis to single-digit quarters backto-back, it shows how well our defence was playing. That kind of set the tone for the game. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been preaching for the last little while how tough defensive stops typically turn into points at the other end and that was true in that game. Winning those battles was a big difference in the game.â&#x20AC;? Vartan Tanielian led the Warriors with 28 points while Tyus Allen and Sam Ykema chipped in with 16 and 13 points, respectively. Even with the loss, Tamanawis heads into the Valley tournament seeded fourth with a solid chance to advance to next monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s provincial championship tournament in Langley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been talking the guys down after the White Rock game and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had some good practices,â&#x20AC;?

The best female softball players on the planet may once again be coming to Surreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Softball City. Softball Canada announced Monday that Surrey has been selected as this countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bid city to land the 2016 International Softball Federation (ISF) Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s World Championships. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are carrying the torch on behalf of Canada and we are taking it very seriously,â&#x20AC;? said Greg Timm, chair of the Surrey bid committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are not in this to lose. Because of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation in the world having Softball Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backing is important but just as important is the reputation weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve built here in Surrey for our ability to host world class softball events. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re well known in the international softball community and I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seen as a safe choice.â&#x20AC;? Surrey made its name as a host city for international womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s softball with the annual Canada Cup tournaments that groomed a generation of Canadian players for Olympic competition. When womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s softball lost its Olympic status after the 2008 Beijing Games, international softball continued at Softball City in the form of the Canadian Open invitational tourney. Timm said the Surrey organizers have been working on the bid for the past two years after changes to the International Softball Federationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tournament structure and financing make a bid feasible. The Surrey organizing committee wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know who they are bidding against until June when official bid documents must be filed.

Six games — five ties. That was the menu served up by the Vancouver Metro Soccer League’s premier division on the final weekend of the regular season. The lone game with an actual winner came Friday night in Vancouver where the Delta United Hurricanes were upended 2-1 by the lowly Vancouver Olympics. To add insult to the pain of the setback was the loss of key Hurricane players Ryan Dhillon and Arjun Atwal, both of whom were sent off with red cards. Neither player will be available this weekend when the Hurricanes take on rival ICST Pegasus in Imperial Cup action at John Oliver Park Sunday at 2 p.m. Pegasus ended the regular season with a 22 draw against Croatia in Newton last Friday.

season on a tepid note when they settled for a 1-1 draw in Coquitlam Tuesday night. “It’s funny, we played 22 games this year and this was our first tie — 12 wins, nine losses and a tie,” said Surrey coach Rob Reed. “For us it was our last league game so it really didn’t mean much because all we have left are cup games. We wanted to leave the field feeling positive about ourselves and we put forth a good effort. It could have been better but we missed a penalty kick on the last kick of the game.” Sean Einarsson scored the lone Surrey goal. Surrey opens Imperial Cup play by hosting Inter FC of the first division Saturday at noon at Cloverdale Athletic Park. Newton’s Rovers CCBTU slowed their second half freefall with a 2-2 draw against league champion Columbus in Vancouver Saturday. The Rovers are in Vancouver again on Sunday to take on Westside in an Imperial Cup fixture.

SPORTS Softball

Surrey bid strengthened by softball reputation ‹ from page 37 documents are due. To counter this, the Canadian effort is making its intentions known early, gambling it will scare off some pretenders and will drum up support among nations who know how well Surrey can stage an event like this. The Surrey bid delegation will travel to Colombia in October to make a final pitch to delegates at the International Softball Federation congress. “What’s pertinent for our bid is countries like Surrey and they love coming here,” Timm said. “They feel like they’re coming to their second home in softball because we have so much local support. Teams are comfortable here plus we have delivered on every promise we’ve made to visiting teams

and that’s important because when you’re dealing with some countries, that’s not always the case.” Canada is no stranger to hosting the women’s softball worlds as the event has made previous stops in the great white north in 1994 (Newfoundland), 2002 (Saskatoon) and 2012 (Whitehorse). Timm admitted familiarity may be a curse in the eyes of some voters but be believes Surrey’s strengths will outweigh any thoughts that it’s time for someone else to host it. “We know that will be seen as a drawback and may create some voter fatigue for some delegates to vote for Canada again,” he said. “We have to promote the strengths of our host committee rather than just saying, ‘Come to Canada.’”

High school basketball

Warriors are used to pressure ‹ from page 37 White Rock knows they carry a target on their backs for every team hoping to score an upset. Shury said such pressure is nothing new for the Warriors. “I think we have a bull’s-eye on our back all the time; we’re used to that now,” Shury quipped. “Just based on the nature of the program and our history gets other teams up for our games. The bull’s-eye stuff will be more obvious when we get to the main draw at the LEC (Langley Events Centre).” In the Fraser Valley central zone final, Lord Tweedsmuir surprised Enver Creek 75-63 to earn the seventh seed in the Valley.

Enver dropped to ninth in the seedings. Fleetwood Park (16) is the only other Surrey or North Delta team to crack the top half of the Fraser Valley seedings. The bottom half of the draw includes North Delta (17), North Surrey (18), Fraser Heights (19), Elgin Park (20), Seaquam (22), Panorama Ridge (23), Semiahmoo (26), Johnston Heights (27), Queen Elizabeth (28), L.A. Matheson (29) and Clayton Heights (32). Round two of the Fraser Valley tourney goes Friday night followed by round three Monday. For scores and schedules, please visit fvbball.org.

6008-06

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Rest, lie low, deal with head office, government agencies, institutions, charitable and spiritual organizations. Start no new projects nor relationships before March 17. Instead, reprise (or fix) the old, or stick with the ongoing. Sunday’s filled with beauty and pleasant notions, but your advances might be playfully steered aside. Tackle overdue work Monday/Tuesday. Relationships prove important midweek – a great conversation (or news article) and a spiritual awakening or dreamy state occur. Seek changes, health diagnosis, realistic investments and/or intimacy Friday/Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Your popularity grows. Optimism, wish fulfillment, light romance and entertainment increase this week and the next few. Old friends return, old wishes are granted, and former flirty, light romantic contacts reappear. New friends and new projects, if started now to March 16, will tend to twirl brightly for awhile, then fizzle. Sunday’s for home, garden, rest, and rejuvenation. Romance calls Monday/Tuesday – your creative, speculative and expressive skills rise up. Tackle familiar chores midweek. If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em Friday/ Saturday – great things come from partnering! Gemini May 21-June 20: Start no new projects, ventures or relationships before March 17. Until then, protect ongoing projects, especially in career and dealings with authorities. They, and bosses, and parents, are gripped by indecision until then. Be ambitious (not ambiguous). Shore up your position, secure recent advances, Monday/Tuesday – or rest and nurture family, for they are the support for your ambitions. Earlier, Sunday’s for short trips, friends and curiosity. Romance and creativity lure you Wednesday/Thursday: but they conflict with your need to grow. You get a lot of work done Friday/Saturday.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2013

Cancer June 21-July 22: Chase money, buy/ sell Sunday – garage sales intrigue. (Don’t buy anything big and important.) Short trips, details, communications and paperwork fill Monday/Tuesday (avoid government forms). Focus on home, kids, real estate, security and nutrition midweek. Friday/ Saturday hold romantic/creative success– which fits superbly into February/March’s broad cycle of love, cultural rituals, far travel, wisdom and higher learning. You could fall in love! But remember: start nothing, project nor relationship, before March 17. The best romance is ongoing, or is embodied in an old flame. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: You’ve entered the realm of mystery, lust, health diagnosis and hidden power plays. Something might return from the past in this arena – perhaps a former sexy playmate, perhaps a chance to live a lifestyle you once hungered for, perhaps a former investment opportunity. DO research, ask questions, follow the mystery, and deal with ongoing situations/people or those returning from the past. DON’T start a new relationship, project, investment or venture. All this, to March 17. You’re the subtle star Sunday. Chase money Monday/ Tuesday. Paperwork, errands midweek. Home, family Friday on. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: DON’T start new projects or relationships before March 17. Stick with the ongoing, and situations that return from the past – including a possible return of a former partner or someone you wished was. However, this few-week interval seems designed more to make you ponder the big picture of relationships, than to re-instate an old one permanently. It’s as if you’re on a bridge to a very different land of love, and are stalled: not to turn you back, but to make you think. Lie low Sunday. Tackle everything with confidence Monday/Tuesday. Money, midweek. Casual friends late week.

Feb. 24 - Mar. 2, 2013

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Much work faces you, but tackle only routine, ongoing or formerly neglected chores before March 17. DON’T start big new projects, employ new staff, nor buy machinery, tools, computers – lemons abound. A former job might be offered. If you’re seeking employment, canvas former bosses. Sunday’s bright, hopeful, happy. Retreat and rest Monday/Tuesday -- government-related tasks go well. (Though they, too, face delay.) Your energy and pizzazz return strongly midweek, but luck (in love, learning, law and travel) mixes with domestic problems. Your money luck soars Friday/Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: This week goes from better to best! (But don’t be tempted to start a new project or relationship before March 17.) Sunday’s for ambition and community reputation: elevate yours by joining, helping. Optimism, popularity, wish fulfillment and general delight fill Monday/Tuesday: an old flame or flirty friend could reappear . You’re on a month-long winning streak of romance, creativity, sports or pleasure. You can renew contacts on many levels, including business. Retreat midweek to rest and contemplate. Your energy and charisma soar Friday/Saturday – you’ll succeed, attract love. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Don’t start new projects or relationships before March 17, Sage, especially in family, domestic, nutrition, real estate, retirement or security zones. (E.g., you could find new renovations have left no room for the basement stairs.) Stick to ongoing projects, or situations from the past. Clear away neglected home-related chores. Sunday’s mellow, thoughtful, cultural. Show your ambition Monday/Tuesday (but start nothing new!). Happiness, optimism and friends fill midweek. Success assured with institutions, government, meditation, rest, health and research Friday/Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Start nothing new before March 17, Cap, especially in mail, computer, telephony, office systems, stationery, or travel. Don’t buy a car or any equipment. You might rediscover a lost book, letter, photo – or an entire “lost acquaintance.” (Don’t invest too heavily in the last.) Sunday’s secrets will open, if you diplomatically push. A mellow, understanding mood flows over you Monday/Tuesday – love (or the hope of love) is possible! Be ambitious midweek, display your skills: luck accompanies you. Social delights, popularity, light romance succeed splendidly Friday/Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Money’s just an abstract way to mete out power, security, position, food, shelter, clothing, medical, dental...and most love is entwined with these. So chase money now to March 19, Aquarius. You won’t be neglecting love, but supporting it. But don’t start a new project or venture. Stick with ongoing dollar situations, or reprise those from the past. (E.g., sell an old article, or seek a job where you worked before.) Sunday’s made exciting by a sensual person. Sex, secrets and finances, Monday/Tuesday. Understanding, mellow love midweek. Ambition, career Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your energy, luck and charisma remain high, Pisces. Remember, start nothing before March 17. Until then, you’ll remain indecisive about goals, partnerships, opportunities, relocation, and love. Stick with ongoing projects, or reprise old ones – avoid the new. Everything’s smooth this week. Chores call Sunday. Relationships, opportunities and goals arise Monday/Tuesday – though excitement occurs, remember: no new links or projects. Life’s mysteries emerge midweek, but hold few rewards if you solve them. Friday/Saturday bring gentle love, intellectual venues and superb luck. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808

As crash regs changed, so did the MGB, although not to everyone’s satisfaction. Later versions such as this one were fitted with rubber bumper extensions and a taller ride height. These perceived shortcuts were not well received.

Fine Lines

MGB was all about freedom Malcolm Gunn

Wheelbase Media

Next to riding a motorcycle, driving – or riding – in an MGB with the top down is the closest you’ll come to automotive nirvana. The heady mix of leather, gasoline and motor oil, combined with whatever natural or man-made odours waft by your nostrils is a seductive automotive opiate. In this age of synthetic-laden interiors, bank vault passenger compartments and well dampened road/engine noises, cars such as the MGB are as out of step with the times as dancing the jitterbug at a Coldplay concert. In its day, however, the MGB was considered so advanced that it created much consternation among the sports car “purists.” When the first car rolled off its Abingdon, England, assembly line in 1962, the public was shocked to find a car with several new features. Real doors, for example. That is to say doors with inside and outside handles ... and glass that rolled up ... and down. There was also a padded dash and a roomy, comfortable cockpit. All of these “features” were firsts for the venerable MG series of roadsters that can trace their roots back to the late 1920s (the name MG stands for Morris Garages, where the cars were first built). The MGB’s unitized construction (with the frame integrated into the body) was also a departure from the tradition of separate ladder-type frames. The Pininfarina-influenced (the Italian design studio that puts forth creations for Ferrari) styling was more see SHORTCUTS › page 49
