Remembering the Titanic Staterooms, fashions recreated in ‘Unsinkable’ exhibit By Jennifer Lang At twenty minutes to midnight, April 14, 1912 passengers aboard the Titanic felt a distinct and troubling bump. The disturbance felt like a train pulling into a station, according to one survivor, whose parents had the good sense to locate the nearest lifeboat and stay there. Billed as “unsinkable”, the grand ship – on her heralded maiden voyage – hit an iceberg in the unforgiving North Atlantic, allowing the sea to breach the watertight compartments that made her safe. Two hours and forty minutes later, she sank beneath the waves, claiming 1,503 lives. Within minutes the vessel lay broken in two nearly 4 km below on the ocean floor, lost but not forgotten until her rediscovery more than 70 years later. A new exhibit that opened this week at the Surrey Museum – in time for the 100th anniversary of the disaster – puts visitors aboard the Titanic in a way you might never have thought possible. Unsinkable: Remembering the Titanic, 1912-2012, is presented by the Surrey Mu-

seum, fashion historian Ivan Sayers and the Johnson GeoCentre of Newfoundland and Labrador April 10 to June 12. It seems the only thing grander and more superlative than the Titanic itself is the legend that surrounds her. A century later, the story still fascinates. For one thing, there was her sheer scale – 11 stories high, weighing more the 46,000 tons, she the largest passenger ship on the seas. Built at a shipyard in Belfast, Ireland, through the labours of 15,000 workers at a cost of $7.5 million, the Titanic was the world’s most luxurious ocean liner. First and third class (or “steerage”) accommodations on board the “Ship of Dreams” have been recreated for the exhibit, largely using materials from the museum’s collection, underscoring the rigid class divisions of the day as well as what it meant to travel in style. Second class on the Titanic matched first class on any other liner – the original “superelite” traveling class. First Class suites, within reach to only the wealthiest, boasted private promenades, two bedrooms, closets and pri-

vate washrooms. First Class amenities also featured Turkish baths and saunas, a well-appointed gymnasium with fitness instructors and sublime dining hall. Third class passengers – most about to start new lives in North America – were fortunate to enjoy electricity, heat, and running water in their considerably more spartan cabins, outfitted with bunk beds. Required by U.S. law, their quarters were separated by steel gates from the rest of the ship but their accommodations weren’t wholly lacking in amenities and amusing diversions, as visitors to the Surrey Museum will discover. Clothing assembled from the museum’s

and fashion historian Ivan Sayers’ collection is also featured, revealing what constituted proper cruise wear on transatlantic voyages in the early 20th century for both middleand upper-class passengers. Then there was the enormity of the tragedy: there weren’t enough lifeboats for all 2,200 passengers and crew. Whether it was denial about the seriousness of the situation – or incompetence – many lifeboats were lowered at less than full capacity. Just over 700 survived. Museum-goers can flip through a list of all the passengers and crew who were aboard. See PRINCE RUPERT/ Page 5

Geography whiz is ready for the challenge

Liam McLaughlin

By Jennifer Lang If you know Hazel in 1954 was Canada’s deadliest hurricane or that spruce accounts for 38 per cent of the tree species in the Boreal Shield and that Barbeau Peak is Ellesmere Island’s tallest mountain, you may be ready for the Great Canadian Geography Challenge. Liam McLaughlin of Clayton Heights Secondary certainly is.

Next Friday morning, the Grade 10 student’s knowledge of Canadian and world geography is going to be put to the test. Not to pressure the lad, but he’s one of just 51 students to qualify for the Great Canadian Geography Challenge National Finals April 19. The competition will be fierce, but his cheering section can take heart in knowing Liam, 15, is already a three-time school winner – and a provincial qualifier, proud accomplishments all. The online exam – taken under strict controls and supervision – could be a breeze for Liam, a kid who lives and breathes geography, according to CHS’s social studies department head Gary McLaughlin, who also happens to be

Liam’s dad. “He loves it,” Gary said. “He can tell you the gross domestic product of almost any country in the world. He’s good at it.” McLaughlin senior has coached students participating in the geography challenge for at least 15 years. He’s had some very promising candidates in that time, but he’s clearly tickled by Liam’s prospects, even while admitting Liam is nearly entirely self-taught when it comes to his geography skills and interest. “He used to just eat atlases up. That’s what he does. That’s what he likes doing.” See KEEPING FOCUSED / Page 8

The show represents a homecoming for The Left, and special guest singer-songwriter Zaac Pick, who have both been on the road of late. The Left, bandmates who met at Pacific Academy and who live in Cloverdale and Langley, won second place in the 2010 Peak Performer contest. They’ve been touring in support of their first full-length album, Cycles. Band member Eric Davis says they’re currently being played on 100.5 FM The Peak. 104.3 The Shore, and CBC Radio 3. Zaac Pick, an Alberta export, is also a resident of Cloverdale. He won Shore 104 FM’s Sounds of Summer song search contest for his song, My Century, featured on his 2009 debut,

Silence treated as consent on MP pensions To the editor; For the past few weeks I have been researching the pension plan offered to Members of Parliament and have found it to be a lavish expenditure of taxpayers’ money – an expenditure that we Canadians cannot afford. Please consider the following: Canada is currently in debt over $580 billion with the debt increasing every day. MPs receive between $157,000 and $314,000 per year – the average Canadian earns $45,000 per year. After six years of service MP’s are entitled to a pension when they reach the age of 55 – the government is discussing raising

Canada leads the way in fight against TB

the age of a Canadian pension to 67. An MP’s pension is calculated at three per cent multiplied by years of service multiplied by salary. The average MP pension is $78,000 per year. Most Canadians do not have a work-related pension. Their retirement income is based on what they are able to save with a small supplement in the form of government pensions. MP’s pensions are not invested and subject to fluctuations. An MP’s pension is banked and the Canadian taxpayer ensures that the fund grows at a rate of 10.4 per cent per year. Most Canadians relying on investment income

have seen their income decline due to record low interest rates. Tony Clement a long time Conservative and future recipient of the MP pension plan has been entrusted to review the plan. Is this not a conflict of interest? Whenever I speak with anyone (MPs excluded) they tell me that they know that the MP’s pension plans are unfair and unaffordable. They then shrug and say something to the effect of “What can you do?” The truth is that individuals can do little by as a group can do a lot. If everyone who felt as I do called or emailed their MP and expressed their concerns, the government would need to

To the editor; Tuberculosis is a leading infectious killer, responsible for more than 1.4 million deaths each year. Yet more people than ever are being treated for this disease, and for the first time in history death by TB is on the decline. This is an incredible accomplishment, but we are challenged by our own success: incurable, all-drug resistance TB is now spreading due to inadequate treatment, which creates drug resistant strains of the disease.

The Cloverdale

listen. If everyone concerned about this huge expense printed out a petition from the government website, filled it out urging an independent, apolitical review of MP’s pension pans and got a least twenty-five people to sign it, their local MP would be required to present it in parliament. Silence implies consent. As long as we say nothing, Members of Parliament are free to assume the taxpayers see nothing wrong with their level of remuneration. We are only powerless to affect change if we believe ourselves to be so. Andrea D’Andrea

A $2 billion underfunding of the largest TB treatment provider, the Global Fund, compounds this spread. Canada is one of the world’s leaders in implementing programs and funding to fight TB. It is in our own interest to take a leadership roll and convince the world to eliminate this funding shortfall; there are no borders to infectious disease. Nathaniel Poole Victoria

Bronze for team Tardi By Jennifer Lang A local curling team has captured the bronze at an international youth curling championship in Mississauga. Team Tardi, the B.C. men’s team at the Optimist International U-18 Curling Championships, claimed their prize over Ontario with a score of 6-5 in the 8th end. It was a big weekend for the west coast: the B.C. women’s team won gold, scoring 7-5 over Alberta at the tournament. Team Tardi features two students from Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary: Skip Tyler Tardi and his brother Jordan, third. Second Nicholas Meister of Langley and lead Zachary Umbach of Coquitlam round out the team, coached by Paul Tardi. They play out of the Langley Curling Club and recently won gold at the B.C. Winter Games. They placed second in their pool with a record of four wins and one loss to advance to the medal round. “It’s a real honour to play as Team B.C. and play for our province,”

Tyler Tardi, 14, said after defeating the Japanese team on their way to the semis. According to organizers, the men’s bronze medal game went to the final end. B.C. had a three-point lead after the first end, but a single in the third and steals in

the fourth and fifth ends got their opponents Ontario back in the game. “We needed to get back into our mindset and get calm,” Jordan Tardi said. The brothers played a strategic eighth end to secure the win. Twenty-four men’s and women’s teams

from Canada, the U.S. and Japan participated in the event, in its 12th year. It took place April 4-8 at the St. George’s Golf and Country Club and Dixie Curling Club. More information and standings at www. gtau18curling.com

Battle of the Bands

School-aged performers in Cloverdale are taking the stage next week. Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary is staging a Battle of the Bands April 19. Elementary school bands are also being invited to show off their talents in the friendly competition, organized by the school’s Interact Club to raise money for Cassidy’s Craft Campaign. Cassidy Briggs was a Cloverdale girl who passed away from a rare pediatric cancer on Jan. 11, 2010 – just shy of her 10th birthday. She loved animals (frogs were a favourite), was an avid reader, and she loved to draw. Before her death, Cassidy hatched a plan to raise money to create a crafts room for patients at B.C. Children’s Hospital. Her friends, schoolmates at George Greenaway Elementary, teachers and family wanted make Cassidy’s dream a reality. They launched Cassidy’s Craft Campaign in April 2010, resulting in a craft area filled with supplies at the hospital. The campaign is ongoing, ensuring the hospital is well stocked with arts and craft supplies. For more information, visit www.cassidybriggsfoundation.com.

Helping people see since 1989

The Challenge is organized by the Canadian Council for Geographic Education, a non-profit organization of teachers. It’s open to students from Grades 4 to 10 and is divided into two levels, Grade 4-6 and 7-10. The top three winners receive scholarships of $3,000, $2,000 and $1,000, in addition to representing Canada at the World Championships in St. Petersburg, Russia. Today – when there are maps on anything, anywhere, on any scale, available in seconds, thanks to modern technology – is an unparalleled time for amateurs to take up and nurture an interest in geography. But Liam’s knack for the sub-

ject goes back to the basics. “I was always interested in geography even when I was younger,� Liam told the Reporter, chalking his success up to good, old-fashioned hard work and a genuine interest. “I just open an atlas and look at it,� he said. “You’ll always find something really interesting.� It’s a refreshing attitude in a world overrun by Google Maps and GPS devices. “As long as you keep focusing on it, the better you become,� he added. He was on a school trip to Europe when he heard he’d made the Canadian nationals. Their itinerary included Belgium, Netherlands, France and England. “It’s not very amazing geography,� he noted.

is Wildlife Awareness Month at the SPCA

April is Wildlife Awareness Month and the BC SPCA would like to do a little trash talking.

move the item but if unsuccessful, starve to death. Animals can also be injured and suffer deep neck wounds as they frantically try to free themselves.

Whether they eat it, get entangled in it or are poisoned by it, wild animals are injured or killed by garbage every single day. With spring (and spring cleaning) upon us, now is the perfect time to reflect on the impact our trash has on wildlife and what we can do to help.

Out in the water items like six-pack rings and discarded fishing line can entangle birds, fish, turtles and other wildlife, causing death by strangulation or drowning. These items can also wrap tightly and painfully around animals, cutting into wings and legs and preventing them from feeding or moving properly. Animals can develop fatal infections, lose limbs or starve. The good news is that we can all make a difference.

Some people just don’t see the harm in littering or not recycling, but the truth is that, in addition to being bad for the environment, even a single piece of litter can be very dangerous to wild animals. And not all littering is intentional. Garbage can easily be spilled when the truck comes around on pick-up day, or animals such as crows, raccoons and skunks can get into a trash bag and spread garbage around as they forage for food. Trash on the ground harms birds and land animals, but can also wash into storm drains and eventually end up in streams, rivers, lakes and oceans, where it causes further injury to aquatic animals. Items such as cigarette butts, plastic caps and lids, and plastic bags are choking hazards. Should an animal mistake a plastic cap for food and manage to swallow it, the danger isn’t over – these items can cause life-threatening blockages of the animal’s digestive system. Plastic items can also accumulate in the stomach, preventing the animal from eating real food. Eventually they die with stomachs full of plastic. Jars and bottles can also become death traps for unsuspecting animals who try to get at the food scraps inside. Once trapped, animals struggle to re-

Trash talk

Liam said he isn’t nervous as he prepares for the nationals. “I just have to wait and see what comes,� he said. The on-line challenge tests contestants’ knowledge of Canadian and world geography. The multiple choice questions are based on themes, and include mapping and economic geography. His supporters will be able to track his progress in real time, online, as he takes the hour- and 15-minute challenge. He logs on at 8:45 a.m. Eleven students qualified from B.C., and most are from private schools. Another Surrey student – from Fraser Heights Secondary – has also qualified for the 2012 Great Canadian Geography Challenge National finals.

The SPCA suggests taking these simple actions: • Recycle as many plastic products as you can. • Buy things with less packaging. • Cut all six-pack rings so animals can’t be caught in them. • Avoid products that come in plastics you cannot reuse or recycle. • Bring your own cloth bags when you go to the grocery store.
