Last Nite surpasses goal

Warren released on bail

Strict conditions for accused driver

Dream comes true

Kevin Diakiw Black Press Reporter

After six years of bringing the Semiahmoo Peninsula together to battle breast cancer and raise awareness about the deadly disease, Nite of Hope has gone on an indefinite hiatus. The April 12 gala was a “dream come true” for organizers, said committee chair Debi Rumley. The event, which raised more than $300,000 that night with help from community partners, exceeded its $1-million goal. “It was huge, we were up to $950,000 going into the event, so we knew we were going to surpass our goal,” the breast cancer survivor said. “After seven years, we have raised $1.25 million.” In late March, Rumley and cochairs Tammy Ritchie and Lori Ishikawa announced they would be taking a break to focus on other areas of need in the community. Since 2006, the three women – with a tremendous amount of support from their committee and the community – have stressed the importance of early mammography and funded breast cancer research.  see page A2

Natasha Leigh Warren left the Surrey courthouse Thursday morning on bail and under strict conditions for her release. Warren, who now lives in Port Coquitlam, faces four charges related to the death of 22-year-old Kassandra Kaulius on May 3 last year. Kaulius, 22, died after her BMW was hit by a van at 64 Avenue and 152 Street. Police announced last Wednesday that Warren, 34, has been charged with dangerous driving causing death, impaired driving causing death, causing an accident resulting in death and failure to stop at an accident causing bodily harm. Evan Seal photo Warren walked Natasha Warren leaves out of the courtcourt last Thursday. house cells Thursday and when asked for her reaction to the charges against her, she said “no comment.” She also declined to offer any comment to the Kaulius family, who has been pushing for stiffer drunk-driving penalties, including an automatic two-year driving suspension for someone arrested for impaired driving. Warren has been released on her own recognizance under the following conditions: keep the peace and be on good behaviour, do not possess or consume alcohol or non-prescription drugs and do not be in the driver’s seat of any motor vehicle. Court searches show Warren has had no other serious run-ins with police and no driving infractions. She has been released on $5,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in Surrey Provincial Court again on May 18.

Pizza-delivery thieves threaten with bear spray Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Police investigating a series of pizza-delivery driver robberies in South Surrey have a slice of advice for business owners: if an order raises red flags, verify it before delivery. Since April 7, and as recently as Sunday night, two pizza-delivery drivers sent to the Rosemary Heights area have been threatened with bear spray and robbed of their cargo

after setting out to deliver large orders placed from private or blocked phone numbers. A third driver was targeted but able to flee the scene before the culprits closed in. Cpl. Barb Creighton said that in each case, the order was worth more than $100, residents at the stated addresses had not ordered pizza and the orders were not verified. “The red flags are going up… but they’re still making the delivery,” she said.

All three victims were delivering near 155 Street and 36 Avenue. Sunday’s incidents – in which a 22-year-old man was targeted at 9:30 p.m. and a 48-year-old woman was robbed 90 minutes later – involved three suspects. In the April 7 robbery, at around 10:15 p.m., there were two suspects. While a police dog team failed to locate suspects Sunday, hours later patrolling officers identified three teens with “very similar

descriptors” to those provided by the victims. Creighton said no arrests were made, but the trio are “definitely people of interest.” The assailants are described as Caucasian teenaged boys, aged 14 to 16 years old. One was wearing a red hoodie, and had a shaved head and brown eyes; another had chinlength hair and was wearing a white baseball cap. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 604-599-0502.

news Surrey-Langley connection still on track to start April 23

Fare decision ‘won’t impact’ bus route Alex Browne Staff Reporter

The promised White Rock-Willowbrook bus connection will go ahead on April 23. TransLink spokesman Derek Zabel confirmed Friday that the new 531 White Rock Centre-Willowbrook route will be going into service as announced. “I know this is something White Rock residents have been waiting for for a number of years,” he said. The decision of TransLink Commissioner Martin Crilly to veto a transit-fare increase

planned for next year had led to speculation that promised service upgrades – including the White Rock-Langley route – would be jeopardized. But TransLink spokesperson Debbie Parhar said she believes the route is already funded by the existing gas tax and is not impacted by Crilly’s decision. The route will be served by a standard 40-foot bus, running every half hour from 5:50 a.m. to 8:50 p.m., seven days a week. The route will run from the bus stops at Johnston Road and Thrift Avenue, up 152 Street to 24 Avenue; then travelling along 24

Avenue to 192 Street, and then to 200 Street via 32 Avenue. Meanwhile, uncertainty over other TransLink services and planning continues. CEO Ian Jarvis said the public transportation system is still studying the potential impacts of Crilly’s decision and the Mayors’ Council on Regional Tranportation’s motion to eliminate a reliance on property tax to fund the system’s Moving Forward Plan. Premier Christy Clark has ruled out the regional mayors’ call for vehicle levies or other short-term funding option to offset a

planned $30 million-two year property tax hike to pay for transit service expansion. Clark has said she believes an audit of TransLink will find savings, while Crilly has said he believes the system could find $1528 million a year in savings without cutting current or planned services. The Mayors’ Council also issued a statement that an April 10 letter from Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Blair Lekstrom does not provide “specific and positive responses” to its concerns on the funding and governance of TransLink.

Planned oil surge increases tanker risks, opponents say

Kinder Morgan Canada announced this month that it will seek to twin its Trans Mountain Pipeline between northern Alberta and Burnaby. The twinning would mean a huge increase in the amount of crude that transits the pipeline, and in the number of oil tankers passing through local waters each year. This is the first of a three-part Black Press series on the logistics, risks and politics involved. Jeff Nagel Black Press

The Everest Spirit, an oil tanker the length of two-and-a-half football fields, nudges slowly under the Second Narrows Bridge. In its bowels is enough crude oil to fill more than 30 Olympic swimming pools, loading it down so that it sits 13 metres deep in the water, close to the carefully prescribed maximum safe draft for the narrow, shallow channel. The ship is one of 32 tankers that last year loaded crude from Burnaby’s Westridge terminal, the end of an 1,100-kilometre pipeline that runs from northern Alberta southwest across B.C. to the Pacific. But Kinder Morgan, which owns the Trans Mountain pipeline, has big plans to turn the current trickle of oil through Vancouver’s harbour into a gusher. The company announced this month it will seek approval to twin the pipeline and increase its current 300,000-barrel-perday capacity to as much as 850,000. Some would continue to flow to refineries in Burnaby and Washington State. But export oil bound for tankers is projected to soar from a current 80,000 barrels per day to as much as 550,000 if the project proceeds. The number of tankers filling up in Burnaby could hit 360 in 2016, five times more than the record 69 crude tankers in 2010. That prospect has alarmed environmentalists who worry the risk of a catastrophic spill is increasing and say Metro Vancouverites never signed on to become Alberta’s oil port. “People are terrified about this,” said Georgia Strait Alliance executive director Christianne Wilhelmson. “If an accident happens, we live here. We’re going to lose our orcas. We’re going to lose our salmon. We’re going to lose our businesses that rely on a pristine environment. “It’s simply not worth the risk.”

The 249-metre Everest Spirit makes its way to the Second Narrows Bridge. At left, the route.

Spill safeguards The tankers move in the harbour with extensive safeguards. On this February day, the 249-metre Everest Spirit is harnessed to one tugboat in front of it and two tugs at the rear – together they have enough pulling power to keep the massive tanker on course no matter what might go wrong with its engines or steering. Large loaded tankers must be accompanied by three tugs from Westridge through the Second Narrows and past the Lions Gate Bridge to English Bay. After that, tankers proceed unaccompanied southeast through the

Strait of Georgia to Saturna Island, where they’re met again by Vancouver Islandbased tugs that accompany them through the currents of Boundary Pass and Haro Strait until they pass Race Rocks and reach the wider waters of Juan de Fuca Strait between Victoria and Washington’s Olympic Peninsula. Agencies on both sides of the border watch for any deviation from the defined shipping lane, which largely follows the international boundary. And a U.S. rescue tug based out of Neah Bay can scramble if any ship loses power and drifts towards rocks or shoreline. Many hands and eyes guide the boat on the bridge. The tankers are required to sail with two pilots – highly trained experts on local waters – in addition to the ship’s captain and navigation officer. The pilots, who actually command the vessel, don’t depend on the ship’s instruments – they bring their own laptops for GPS navigation and charting. One monitors instruments and calls out any deviations from the precision course through the Second Narrows, while the other actually steers and monitors other conditions, such as wind and current. If one of the tugs failed, the other two – or even just one larger tug – could control the tanker and tow it to safe anchorage, says Pacific Pilotage Authority president and CEO Kevin Obermeyer. “It really is overkill,” he said. “But it’s overkill for a good reason.” Other regulations also apply. Tankers only move in daylight with

a minimum of one mile visibility, at a maximum of six knots, and only pass through the Second Narrows at slack tide. And loaded tankers have the channel to themselves – all other ships must wait – all but eliminating the risk of collision. “The tankers are probably the most protected species out there,” Obermeyer said. Some of the rules stem from an incident in 1978 when the freighter Japan Erica hit the Second Narrows railway bridge in heavy fog. Pilots train for disaster using simulators, but the pilotage authority has also staged live harbour tests to verify that tugs can indeed control an errant tanker with an engine or rudder failure. Unlike the single-hulled Exxon Valdez, which spilled more than 230,000 barrels off Alaska in 1989, all tankers loading here must be double-hulled. That’s no panacea – double-hulled tankers have also breached and spilled – but it’s another improvement shipping defenders point to as evidence the times have changed. Indeed, through most of B.C.’s centurylong history of safely moving oil on water, tankers did not have the benefit of tugs, pilots or modern navigational aids like GPS. That trend is borne out in worldwide tanker accident statistics, which show spills in the 2000s released about a quarter as much oil as they did in the two previous decades and about one-twelfth as much as the 1970s. “I would say it’s extremely safe,” Obermeyer said. “Can I say we would never have an accident? No, I can’t say that.”  see page A4

‘There’s risk in doing everything’  from page A3

Bigger, deeper So far, the largest tankers loading at Westridge are Afraxmax class tankers like the Everest Spirit, which have a maximum capacity of 650,000 barrels. In practice, they have been loaded to no more than 80 per cent full due to the draft limit – how deep they can sit in the water without coming too close to the seabed in the Second Narrows. Previously, tankers were allowed to load to 12.5 metres, but in 2010 the Pacific Pilotage Authority increased the draft limit to 13.5 metres. Ships haven’t yet loaded to that full depth – they’ve held back at around 13 metres to date – but they’re expected to start going all the way later this spring, allowing more oil to be carried. Still bigger ships may come if Kinder Morgan twins the pipeline. The company has indicated it may seek permission to use giant Suezmax tankers that carry up to one million barrels – half again as much as Aframax tankers. The Second Narrows would have to be dredged deeper to accommodate them, and shipping authorities say all other tanker-safety requirements would have to be reviewed and possibly strengthened. Dredging would be targeted at the edges of the channel – not increasing its maximum depth – and would be subject to an environmental review, according to Port Metro Vancouver harbour master Yoss Leclerc. “We’re not talking about huge dredging volumes,” he said. “We are used to dredging in the river. This is nothing comparable to that.”

‘Overwhelming responses’ for enhancement

Waterfront ideas discussed

Tuesd Feb. 14, 2012 (Vol. l. 37 No. 13)

Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Dozens of people turned out to the White Rock Community Centre last week to give their two-bits on how to enhance White Rock’s waterfront. Suggestions – jotted on pink, orange, blue and yellow Postit notes – quickly filled white sheets of paper that had been hung to collect ideas for activities, facilities, attractions and improvements for the area located between the southern curb of Marine Drive and the water. They ranged from redoing the pier washroom, to installing a gondola that would carry people from downtown parking to the beach, to adding an off-leash dog area, and improving trash and recycling facilities. One note asked for more festivals related to the ocean, ‘our natural resource’; another suggested an Easter bonnet parade on the promenade; others asked for a playground, space for volleyball and whale tours. Calls to keep dogs off the beach were as plentiful as those to make it more dog-friendly. “There were some overwhelming responses‌ a lot of different ideas,â€? Paul Stanton, the city’s director of planning and development services, said Friday. “There was a lot of really good ideas for festivals and for different things that can be considered.â€?

Close to 100 people turned out to the White Rock Community Centre. among three committees and one task force for which draft terms of reference were to be considered by council Monday (April 16) – said while she has ideas for the waterfront, including to increase its friendliness to pedestrians, she is curious if anything will come of any of the suggestions. “My first question would be, why are we doing this?� Boyd said during the open house portion of the meeting. “Are we doing this because there’s money available and the city wants to make changes with the best information available?� It doesn’t make sense to look at making changes if there are no funds to implement the ideas, she said. Whatever changes may come, “some of it is going to be at a cost to the environment,� she added. One city staffer said grant fund-

ing is typically easier to acquire if projects are shovel-ready; ideas gathered last week may also be things that could be put to developers looking to build in White Rock, to encourage certain design themes or amenities. At least one White Rock resident said she likes things just the way they are. Mary Garner told Peace Arch News prior to the meeting that she was “absolutely, violently opposed to anything being done on the south side of the tracks.� “There’s no such thing, apparently, as leaving things alone, as we like it,� she said. Garner predicted that “all sorts of ridiculous things will come up� at the forum. Stanton said staff will put together a package of information from the meeting, along with a report, and take it to council “as soon as possible.�

Oil plans must consider wildlife

T

he world’s thirst for oil is poised to turn the current trickle of crude through Vancouver’s harbour into a gusher. Kinder Morgan Canada announced this month that it will seek to twin its Trans Mountain Pipeline between northern Alberta and Burnaby, increasing its current 300,000-barrel-per-day capacity to as much as 850,000. That means the number of tankers filling up in Burnaby could hit 360 in 2016 – five times more than in 2010. Good for the economy, yes. But the question on many people’s lips involves a frightening scenario: What if there is a spill? Certainly, many safeguards are already in place. Oil tankers must be double-hulled and are required to sail with two pilots – highly trained experts on local waters who are familiar with any hazards that need to be avoided. In addition, all oil tanker vessels that sail into Canadian waters must have an arrangement with a spill response organization which, on the West Coast, is the Western Canada Marine Response Corporation (WCMRC). If there is a spill, and the ship’s owner walks away, the vessel would be seized and WCMRC would tap into insurance tanker companies are required to purchase – Canada’s Ship-source Oil Pollution Fund. If that insurance runs out, a similar international fund is used for cleanup. But there’s a hole in the prevention and remedy protocols big enough to sail a sizable ship through. What about wildlife? According to Coleen Doucette, vice-president of the Oiled Wildlife Society of B.C., there are no laws compelling companies to clean up birds and animals impacted by a spill. “The way policies are written in Canada, wildlife is not part of the environment. No one has to clean up wildlife,” Doucette says. Oil spill response usually involves containing spills with booms and collecting the oil using skimmers. If the responsible party requests a wildlife rescue, WCMRC may manage it or hire a professional organization to perform it. The problem is, not all responsible parties choose to respond to oiled wildlife. This loophole is troubling in light of news that marine mammals are making a comeback in the Salish Sea after decades of decline. Thanks to conservation efforts, sea lions, seals, orcas, humpback and fin whales, dolphins and elephant seals are dramatically increasing in numbers. Our coastlines are among B.C.’s most precious resources. If the province does agree to open its shores to more tanker traffic, protection for marine life must be part of the equation.

including production of PVC plastic. Pulp mills developed a way to eliminate trace dioxins from their production, but that didn’t matter once Greenpeace had a global campaign going. They still used chlorine, so they’re bad. Speaking of chlorine, PCBs are polychlorinated biphenyls, a persistent background toxin. Tests found levels three to five times higher in some wild salmon compared to farmed. But the wild salmon results were ignored in a 2004 study, used by Suzuki to depict farmed salmon as poisonous. Moore highlighted another bit of greenwashing in a visit to Victoria last year. The vaunted “LEED” certification for green building standards gives you points if your concrete is locally sourced, but no points for using wood instead. That’s because the long campaign by major environmental groups has devolved to “logging is bad.” Here’s the latest example. Greenpeace, ForestEthics and the Sierra Club were bankrolled by U.S. foundations to negotiate with the B.C. government, aboriginal people and forest companies for the 2006 “Great Bear Rainforest” agreement on the B.C. coast. Economic opportunity was delicately balanced against preservation, and First Nations gained new control of forests. Now the big enviros have begun campaigning against their own deal. As much as 50 per cent could still be logged, they say. It seems this particular green peace is bad for their business.

Not a sign of the times Editor: Re: Billboard to ‘showcase’ city, April 5. This is not the time for the City of White Rock to try billboards. A billboard along the highway to point to White Rock? Why not place it in a less expensive environment prior to entering Canada? The stream of tourists will not come close to advertising models like that anymore anyway. Billboards are out and smartphones and mobile broadcasting are in. Open a channel for travellers to hear while approaching our community – and do it together with Surrey. Foremost my question, which we all should ask ourselves: Why should taxpayers’ money subsidize further or contribute to the White Rock Business Improvement Association and Tourism White Rock for the purpose to crowd parking places and more? On another note, the Business Improvement Association is seeking to employ a marketing co-ordinator for their White Rock operation. Wow. In my past professional administrative environs, we called that ‘empire building,’ and it was banned since 90 per cent can be implemented by existing personnel. Johan Sandstrom, White Rock

Need I remind you that one of the main arguments of the Conservative government for getting rid of the gun registry was the enormous cost to taxpayers for the administration of the program? Yet, this government, if they were to proceed with this unnecessary legislation, would no doubt find that the costs associated with this program are similar to that of the gun registry. This proposed legislation serves no real purpose except to promote a hidden agenda, an agenda which will allow the government to interfere in the labour laws of this country to give a significant advantage to employers at taxpayers’ expense. In these times of fiscal restraint, I implore you to drop support of Bill C377, a piece of legislation which would only add to the burden of the Canadian taxpayer. Phil Halley, Surrey

As costly as the gun registry Editor: An open letter to South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale MP Russ Hiebert. I am writing to you today to express my concern towards your private member’s Bill C-377, and to ask you and the government drop this proposed legislation. There are numerous reasons as to why this legislation does not deserve the support of any political party; however, I would like to focus on one specific issue – the cost to taxpayers. This bill will be very costly for the government to administer, and it will cost taxpayers a lot of money. There are 25,000 union organizations, and internal divisions of union organizations in Canada that will have to file incredibly detailed reports under this bill. All those reports will have to be processed. Furthermore, there will be a huge cost to government to develop all of the regulations needed to enact the legislation, to develop and prepare all the required forms, instruction booklets, training and software programs to file, receive and process the information. In addition to the millions of dollars it will cost to prepare for the enactment of this legislation, there will be ongoing costs in the millions – even perhaps billions – for the government because processing these reports will require many full-time staff, including auditors, accountants, lawyers and administrative workers.

Surrey Track and Field Championships (pictured in 2011) aren’t expected to return this year due to a labour dispute.

Far greater losses than athletics Editor: Re: School sports seasons ‘on thin ice,’ April 10. I read with interest your story about school sports but would like to point out to your readers that while after-school sports programs certainly help make school a more enjoyable place for students and teachers, cancelling them does not kill a school. In fact, cancelling them, while undesirable, does far less damage to public education than the persistent refusal by government to listen to what teachers say about learning conditions and adequate support for all types of students. Underfunded programs and disregard for teachers’ professional judgment about the state of education is far more likely to kill a school than withdrawal of an after-school sports program. Unfortunately, disregard for teachers’ professional judgment appears to be the order of the day. Collectively, B.C. teachers spend over 37 million hours in school classrooms each year. The last time I looked, B.C. politicians spent none. Yet Bill 22 – known as the Education Improvement Act – was written by politicians without any consultation with teachers. Sadly, one of the results of Bill 22 is that teachers will have less say in how our children are educated. I cannot see how this will lead to an improvement in education. Not one teacher I know is enthusiastic about the prospect of cutting back on voluntary activities. Yet as programs and services to students in the classroom continue to be cut, teachers need to choose where best to direct their time, energy and training: to the

increasing pressures of over-crowded classrooms or to extra sports and leisure activities. Finally, I’d like to point out that the BC Teachers’ Federation is a democratically run organization and most teachers are not at odds with union decisions, since recommendations such as cutting out extracurricular activities are put forth by the union always have been, and will continue to be, voted on by the teachers themselves. Parents are encouraged to talk to their children’s teachers about their decision to participate or not in extracurricular activities, and how Bill 22 will impact B.C. students for years to come. Donald Fleming, White Rock

Relationship damaged Reading again about the actions of one of our “we want” societies – after one year of talking, those less able to assist them are paying the price. Indeed, school coaches are volunteer positions, but so what. Many people volunteer in different organizations and never get paid and rarely receive a reward. For the teachers, so visible, coaching is a way to build a relationship, which is damaged by this attitude of showing that education is also a way to demonstrate to get something under “we want” socialistic tone, a direction large parts of the world are suffering from. The negative view among the people is getting larger as its militant record keeps rising. Suan. H. Booiman, White Rock

Crews called to Old Curio Shop

Stuck man freed from staircase Nick Greenizan Staff Reporter

Emergency crews – including Surrey firefighters and paramedics – were called to the Old Curio Shop in South Surrey Thursday morning after a man became stuck in a staircase in the residence on the north side of the property. One ambulance and at least four firefighters were on the scene shortly before 9 a.m., where they could be seen coming and going from the cluttered yard on the north side of the property, 1430 King George Blvd., which includes a residence. No one was injured, and initial reports that someone had become trapped under fallen debris were false, according to a Surrey fire department

spokesperson, who added that the man involved was believed to be the owner of the shop. Back in December, City of Surrey bylaw officers, responding to complaints regarding the tidiness of the property, visited the Old Curio Shop – which has become well-known through the years for its floorto-ceiling collection of second-hand items – and cleared debris and dying blackberry bushes from the front and south side of the site. At the time, Surrey manager of bylaw enforcement and licensing Ed Warzel told Peace Arch News that his department “have been dealing with the owner of this property since 2009.”

Accused killer to stand trial Black Press

A man accused of killing his wife during a brazen daytime attack at her workplace last summer has been ordered to stand trial in B.C. Supreme Court. Manmeet Singh, 27, was charged with first-degree murder last July after the stabbing death of 24-year-old Ravinder Kaur Bhangu. His trial was ordered after a three-day preliminary hearing in Surrey Provincial Court last week. Police were called to the Sach Di Awaaz Newspaper office near 128 Street and 82 Avenue on the morning of July 28, 2011. Witnesses at the time reported see-

Singh was arrested at the scene, charged the same day and has been in custody since. He is also charged with aggravated assault

and assault with a weapon in relation to injuries suffered by a man who attempted to intervene in the deadly attack. Bhangu and Singh had been married since 2009, but friends said the couple had separated a few months before the murder. The victim’s parents and immediate family live in India. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team said there was no indication the attack had anything to do with the newspaper where Bhangu worked as an administrative assistant. She was also a Giddha (folk dance) instructor at a local Punjabi arts club. Singh’s next court date is May 3 in New Westminster Supreme Court.

Tunnel vision The province has no plans to upgrade the 53-year-old George Massey Tunnel. Delta council is trying to make the case for a rebuilt Fraser River crossing for Highway 99. But Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom said the province wants to first see how traffic patterns respond to the opening of the South Fraser Perimeter Road – a 40-kilometre four-lane highway linking Fraser crossings – by the end of 2013. The northeast third of the perimeter road in Surrey opens this December, at the same time as the new tolled Port Mann Bridge.

Surrey man admits to killing wife A Surrey man has admitted he killed his wife two years ago. Kamaljit Singh Dhanoa, 35, pleaded guilty in New Westminster Supreme Court Monday morning to manslaughter in connection with the death of

his 32-year-old spouse, Tejinder Kaur Dhanoa, in January 2010. Tejinder was initially reported missing, but police discovered her body at the family home near 130 Street and English Place in Newton the next day.

Kamaljit had been charged with second-degree murder, but pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of manslaughter. Monday was to be the first day of his trial. His sentencing is now scheduled for July 20.

Saturday, April 21, 2012 9:30 am-4:00 pm Throughout the year Surrey plays host to many events which are organized by a variety of community groups and cultural organizations. City Council makes every attempt to accommodate these events while recognizing that some impact the community more than others. Surrey’s diversity offers the opportunity to experience the traditions and customs of other cultures. City Council works to promote respect and understanding for each cultural group within our city. This support manifests itself in recognizing and supporting important occasions and traditions. Measures, such as printed event notices in local newspapers and the advanced posting of traffic disruption notices, are taken to minimize the impact as much as possible. RCMP and BC Ambulance Service are present at such events to aid the community and ensure the event is as safe and controlled as possible. The annual Vaisakhi Parade is scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 21, 2012. The parade will begin at approximately 9:30 AM at Gurdwara Sahib Dasmesh Darbar, located at 12885-85 Avenue, and will conclude there at approximately 4:00 PM. To facilitate parade activities, area residents and businesses should be advised there will be: • Road Closures • Traffic Disruptions • Restricted Access • Temporary Parking Restrictions

Surrey Museum’s latest exhibit marks 100-year anniversary of famous disaster

Remembering the Titanic Jennifer Lang

A

Black Press

t 20 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 supposed to make her safe. Two hours and 40 minutes later, she sank beneath the waves, claiming 1,503 lives. Within minutes, the vessel lay broken in two nearly four kilometres 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 Museum, fashion historian Ivan Sayers and the Johnson GeoCentre of Newfoundland and Labrador. The exhibit runs until 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 storeys high, weighing more the 46,000

The ship sank two days later after colliding with an iceberg. tons, she was the largest passenger ship on the seas at the time. 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 Surrey 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 “super-elite” travelling class. First Class suites, within reach of only the wealthiest, boasted private promenades, two bedrooms, closets and private 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 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 people survived. Museum-goers can flip through a list of all the passengers and crew who were aboard. The story of the Titanic also contains an integral element for today’s celebrityobsessed culture – a passenger list that boasted the most prominent American names of the day, including John Jacob Astor, a Guggenheim, a Macy’s department store owner and the “unsinkable” Margaret (Molly) Brown, a Denver millionairess and philanthropist who urged her fellow lifeboat passengers to row back to save more lives.  see page A12

Various Titanic events scheduled  from page A11 Once safely aboard the rescue vessel RMS Carpathia, Brown rallied donations for surviving widows and orphans, earning a place in musical theatre and movie history. There’s even a British Columbian connection – railway magnate Sir Charles Melville Hays, an American Montrealer with a Titanic-sized vision for Prince Rupert as the terminus of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, complete with a grandiose hotel and shipping port. He, too, perished on the Titanic, putting Prince Rupert’s destiny on hold. Programs for families and children will be available throughout the duration of the exhibit. On Saturday, April 14, Ivan Sayers presents Titanic Tea and Fashion, a slide presentation and talk profiling the clothing the fashion-savvy passengers wore aboard the Titanic. On Friday, June 8, parents and young children are invited to Titanic Ladies or Titanic Gentleman, preschooler sessions on the discovery and clothing of the Edwardian Era. Winnipeg-bound Eva Hart, who was just seven years old that terrible, cold night awaiting rescue, lived a long life, but her father’s was cut short. After

If you’re going to have a party, why not make it for the planet? And why not invite some of the most popular bands in Canada to entertain the crowds? Surrey’s Party for the Planet, billed as one of the largest Earth Day events in the province, is scheduled for next weekend, featuring two days of hot bands, as well as family performances and ecofriendly booths and activities. Headlining the event are punk-pop rappers Down With Webster, who have risen to the top of the Canadian music scene with hits like She’s Dope, Rich Girl$ and Whoa is Me. The event will also showcase international pop artist Raghav, whose hits Fire and Top of the World have climbed the charts. With 1.3 million copies of the debut album Storyteller sold in England and more in Southeast Asia, Raghav is a star in Canada and around the world. Friday night, the stage will be shared by Peak Performance finalists The Boom Booms, EMI Music’s newest recording artist Shawn Hook, and rising Surrey band Good for Grapes. Saturday will feature children’s entertainers Bobs & Lolo, the Ta Da Lady, Mike Battie and the SuperChefs, as well as several meetand-greets with The Backyardigans. With fun and interactive displays and community engagement, Party for the Planet is also an opportunity for the City of Surrey to showcase key sustainable initiatives, such as traffic and transportation, waste diversion, trees and landscapes, water management, and energy. This year’s party is scheduled for April 27, 4-10 p.m. and April 28, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Central City Plaza, 13450 102 Ave. Admission is free.

CELEBRATING OUR 30TH YEAR IN THE COMMUNITY! Thank You White Rock/South Surrey for your continued support For 30 years, the team at Cammack and Company, Notaries Public, has been providing exceptional service to the residents on the Semiahmoo Peninsula. Specializing in drafting and recording legal documents, Roy Cammack and his staff offer a wide range of professional legal services not available at other Notary offices, in a friendly and efficient manner. As a long-time White Rock resident, Roy knows the importance of building relationships with clients while providing accurate and thorough service. Among services available are documents for Real Estate Transactions, Mortgages, Land Development, and personal documentation such as Wills, Powers of Attorney, Representation Agreements and Advance Directives. “We pride ourselves on providing the highest quality service, delivered by the most competent and caring staff,” he said. “I am somewhat of a perfectionist, which at times may be trying for others, but in the end, we know it’s for the best.” One of the most important services Roy and his team provide is assistance navigating through the pages of legal jargon and terminology. By drafting a document in Plain English, clients can be more informed about what they are signing. “We want to make it understandable so our clients are always very comfortable,” Roy said. Walking into the office, it’s easy to see why Cammack and Company has been successful for three decades. The warm, inviting atmosphere created by front-end staff and Dawn, Roy’s wife and business partner, helps put clients at ease. “Dawn is my right-hand person,” Roy said. “I couldn’t be where I am today without her.” This year, the community has taken notice of the exceptional client care offered by Roy and his team, when he was named the “Outstanding Business Person of the Year” by the South Surrey and White Rock Chamber of Commerce. “It is great to work in the community you live and with a community that knows you,” Roy said.

Hell-raiser inspires ‘a little bit of peace’ Alex Browne

Staff Reporter

hey’ve gone from raising a little hell to inspiring a little peace. White Rock’s Ra McGuire, singer-songwriter of the iconic Canadian rock band Trooper (whose hits include “Raise A Little Hell”), and his wife Debbie, who spearheaded the campaign to establish a fine arts program at White Rock Elementary, are to receive special recognition for inspiring cultural harmony and championing the arts in education. The couple will receive the Torch Bearer Award – sponsored by the international World Harmony Run – April 25 at Peace Arch Park. “The McGuires have made the world a better place through their heartfelt commitment to bringing people together and sharing the gift of peace through music,” World Harmony Run executive director Salil Wilson said. “We’re grateful to be included among the illustrious recipients of the Torch Bearer Award,” commented Debbie McGuire, whose campaigning helped lead to the creation of Surrey’s Intensive Fine Arts Program, first such in the school district.

White Rock’s Ra McGuire and wife Debbie will be the recipients of the Torch Bearer Award on April 25.

“Each of us has a significant and important role to play in this world – not only in ‘raising a

little hell’ but, more importantly, in ‘inspiring a little peace’,” said Ra McGuire.

Past recipients of the Torch Bearer Award include music producer and entrepreneur

Russell Simon, sports legend Billie Jean King and Slovenian head of state Dr. Danilo Turk. The bi-annual run, founded in 1987 by peace visionary Sri Chinmoy, now stands as the world’s longest global relay, covering more than 45,000 miles in more than 100 countries. Since it began, runners have logged enough miles to circle the earth 13 times. In the run’s 25th anniversary year, the run’s Canadian team will cover 2,755 km in relays across the country, while parallel runs will take place throughout North and South America, Europe, Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Asia. More important than the distance covered is the slogan ‘harmony begins with me’ and the message of cross-cultural understanding, self-esteem and positive learning environments that the run brings to children in schools, daycamps and athletic organizations in every community along each run route. Among luminaries who have held the World Harmony Run torch are South African president Nelson Mandela, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Russian president Mikhail Gorbachev and Mother Theresa.

Put your best foot forward Whether you’re running, walking or hiking (or a little of everything), it’s important to remember to wear proper shoes. The team at Peninsula Runners work hard to assess the needs of their customers in order to get them the shoe that best fits their feet and their needs. “You should consider what you intend to use the shoe for, both short- and long-term,” Peninsula Runners’ manager Lisa Farrow said. “You may start off by solely walking, but you might intend to run after a few short months. We take that into consideration when fitting for shoes.” There are different types of shoes for different terrains, including shoes specifically designed for roads or trails and shoes that are hybrids – a popular choice for most consumers. It’s also important to maintain your foot health by paying attention to when you need to replace your shoes. “Just like the gas in your car, it depends on how far and how hard you are using your shoes,” Lisa said. “Runners do, typically, replace their shoes about twice a year. The more you run, the more likely you are to replace your shoes.” Ultimately, Lisa says the golden rule is having a proper fit. Matt Deeter, pedorthist at White Rock Foot Care, echoes Lisa about the importance of proper foot care. “Living in a beach community here in White Rock and South Surrey, there are a lot of people walking around in cheap flip-flops and then we see a huge influx of people with plantar fasciitis come around August,” he said. “An easy fix is to look into some of the flipflops with arch support.”

For people who are looking to get in shape for the flip-flop weather, Matt suggests going to professionals to find the right fit for your shoe, and don’t be hesitant to spend some extra money to get the one best suited for you. “People use a $40 pair of athletic shoes, rather than actually going out and getting one of the few pieces of equipment you need to be active, which is quality and activity-appropriate footwear,” he said. “It’s amazing the money people throw at gym memberships, exercise equipment and supplements every month, but balk at spending $130 on a shoe that will last them one year.” Matt said there are a couple of easy tests for making sure your shoes are good quality: a twist test and a flex test. “If your shoes can be wrung around like a dish rag, that’s the equivalent for your feet of driving around with flat tires for your car,” he said, about the twist test. “For the flex test, bend the shoes at the toes to check where it flexes. Your foot bends at the toes, so that’s where the shoe should bend. It just makes sense.”

Deal with seasonal change A change in weather can mean a change in what your body needs. Debbie Malick, owner of Country Sun Natural Foods, says that as the weather warms up, more fresh fruit and vegetables are readily available, giving another added incentive to stock up on the nutrients they store. “Eat veggies and lettuces in the spring and summer and during the winter take wheat grass or blue-green algae. The one thing I really recommend for everyone is to eat greens. They help the body in so many ways, including hair, skin, nails and internal organs.” For the most part, Debbie said most concerns in the springtime relate to allergies. She suggests using a supplement, such as Quercetin, AllerEase or Immuno-Care. “Boy, do those work really, really well,” she said. “When everything is blooming, it can cause all sorts of issues for people. These will help.” If changing up your diet is something you’re looking into, Debbie said to make sure you do one thing at a time. For example, if a gluten-free diet is something being tested, don’t cut out dairy at the same time. “Don’t go into your cupboard and throw everything out,” she said. “Change one thing at a time. It’s a bit of trial and error, but that’s why you ask us. We eat it all. “We don’t carry every brand and there is a reason why. We pick the really good ones.” Dr. Caleb Ng, from MountainView Wellness Centre, suggests a spring cleanse to get ready for the seasonal change. “It helps to eat a lot cleaner, cutting down on carbs, increasing green leafy vegetables and

fruit, and even increasing certain herbs like dandelion helps with detox,” he said. Caleb also recommends glutathione, an antioxidant that helps out the liver in removing toxin. There are different kinds of programs available for people considering a cleanse. At MountainView Wellness, Caleb and his staff can even help create a shopping list so clients can get items, as well as recipes. As for allergies, Caleb also recommends natural supplements to help stabilize allergic responses, such as bioflavonoids, or adding essential fatty acids to help regulate inflammation. “By addressing digestive or gut issues, it can help with allergies,” Caleb said. “If you get your digestive system in better shape, allergies can improve.” In general, Caleb recommends basic natural solutions, which can help improve overall health, including vitamin C, bioflavonoids and fish oil.

Spring into a healthy life It can be tempting to throw yourself into an intense exercise regime, but there are a few things to consider before you begin. Shirley Garrett, a personal trainer at Leaps & Bounds, said that the very first step should be speaking with your doctor to find out if you’re healthy enough to start exercise. Once that has been established, it’s on to the fun stuff. “Set some goals. What are you looking for? Are you looking to lose weight, add more muscle tone? And you need to set realistic, specific goals,” she said. Once the goals have been set, it is important to know how to achieve those goals, Shirley said. “Get a good book, or a trainer, or get a video. It’s good to have the goals but now you need to achieve them,” she said, noting that there are many workouts that can be done at home. Natalie Dunnill from Sandcastle Fitness also notes the importance of proper nutrition and exercise to get fit. “Fitness and proper nutrition go hand-inhand, and to see safe and permanent results takes a bit of time,” she said. There is no quick fix to a perfect beach body, but there are simple tips that can help make the journey a bit easier. Natalie advises busy people to try incorporating fitness into their day-to-day life, whether it’s using the stairs instead of the elevator or walking instead of driving. Instead of focusing on problem areas, Natalie suggests implementing a complete fitness plan, so the entire body will be in better shape. “You cannot spot-reduce fat in certain areas, however, you can make your body into more of a fat-burning machine and you can work on

toning specific muscles,” she said. Over at Innovative Fitness, Chris Christopherson has also noticed several trends that people are using to get into shape, including Crossfit, event-focused training and personal training. “Crossfit is definitely a trend that has become more and more popular. The challenge and competitive aspects of the program are motivating and keep people engaged,” he said. As for event-focused training, such as training for a marathon or an event like an adventure race, Chris said they are a great way to get fit, as you have a goal to reach by a deadline. “With a date on which you need to be physically ready, it holds you accountable to a program and provides a focus and a sense of accomplishment when the goal is achieved,” he said. “It’s definitely a win in my book.” At the top of his list is personal training, Chris said. “A qualified and experienced trainer can provide motivation to do more, knowledge on how to train properly, experience to keep you going, accountability to stay on track and inspiration to challenge you further,” he said.

Something to smile about With the month of May just around the corner, people will begin the process of spring cleaning. But it’s not just messy rooms and garages that need to be focused on. For people who are looking for a way to refresh their look, teeth whitening can be the best bet. Brightening your smile is a non-invasive way to instantly boost confidence and look younger, said local dentist, Dr. Sandra Finch. “Whitening is a great thing to do. It promotes a sense of well-being and research shows that white teeth are perceived as healthy and youthful,” she said. “It’s also very safe and economical, as opposed to other cosmetic procedures.” There are many avenues to go down if you are looking to whiten your smile, including in-office whitening offered by your dentist. Sandra recommends going to a dentist to achieve the best results in a safe and professional environment with the added bonus being that a dentist can also keep an eye out for any oral issues. “Whitening can be a part of a bigger treatment plan. First, we look at the bite, then look for tooth decay, then we can whiten teeth and replace any fillings that need to be changed,” she said. “You can also get your oral health exam and observation done at the same time.” For those who are concerned with sensitivity, Sandra said the results can vary from no sensitivity at all to lots. The best way to figure out if whitening is the best choice is by speaking to an oral health care professional, who can also adjust the whitening process to suit your needs by blocking off certain areas. “Let’s say the neck of the tooth is sensitive, a dentist can ensure that the gel is more

carefully applied and isolate the area that is sensitive,” she said. If going to the dentist for an in-office treatment isn’t the best option for you, Sandra pointed out that many oral health professionals offer take-home kits to their patients, which include a custom-fitting tray and gel. Having the custom fit can make a huge difference in the results you get, she added. “Teeth are rounded and shaped, and sometimes they are crooked, we take that into account,” Sandra said. Dentists can also consider pre-existing conditions and existing dentistry in the mouth. Sandra explained that, for some, whitening may not make teeth look better, and can lead to a patchy result. The best option would be to consult with a dentist to find out what the outcome will be. Sandra points out that there is a genetic component to the colour of teeth, as well as a hygiene component and dietary and oral habits.

news B.C. among ‘pretty elite’ group with strong credit, says Falcon

Investors don’t mind HST failure Tom Fletcher Black Press

File photo

Finance Minister Kevin Falcon is optimistic about B.C.’s financial future.

Gateways Logo

Even with billion-dollar deficits to back out of the harmonized sales tax, Kevin Falcon is getting a warm reception as he makes the annual finance minister’s tour of major banks and bond rating agencies. Reached in Toronto between stops in New York and Chicago, Falcon said Thursday’s AAA credit rating reports by Moody’s Investors Services and Standard and Poor’s show that B.C. continues to compare favourably to other jurisdictions emerging from the 2008-09 recession. “In a world of great uncertainty, we’re part of a pretty elite, small club, a shrinking club of jurisdictions that enjoy the strongest possible credit rating,” The Surrey-Cloverdale MLA said. “There is a lot of investment interest in British Columbia.” B.C. started its fiscal year April 1 with

a deficit expected to be $969 million, returning to a $154 million surplus by 2013-14 and a spring election. “The province’s plan to balance its budget by 2013-14 is feasible given its track record of effective fiscal management,” Moody’s said in its credit rating report. Falcon said B.C.’s growing Asia trade is looked on favourably by bankers and private investors, which he has lined up a series of meetings with this week. They notice projected spending limited to two per cent overall, and a record of meeting budget targets, he said. Ontario is collecting HST revenues, but aims to take until 2017-18 to get get its $16 billion deficit back into the black. Moody’s warned Ontario in December of a possible credit rating downgrade if it fails to meet that target, a change that would increase government borrowing costs.

The licence would also cover an adults-only lounge adjacent to the theatre. Ontario, Alberta and Manitoba already have similar licences. Jeremy Bator, president of the Motion Picture Theatre Association of B.C., praised the move. “These changes will have a positive impact on so many levels, including increased jobs, a better guest experience and a more level playing field in the increasingly competitive landscape of entertainment in Canada,” he said.

The B.C. government has created a new liquor licence that allows theatres to serve alcohol during movie showings. Rich Coleman, the cabinet minister responsible for B.C. liquor and gambling policy, says the change will get rid of red tape for theatres that could get a licence to serve alcohol for live events, but couldn’t show movies in the same place. The new licence will allow the-

atres to serve drinks in the lobby, but patrons won’t be able to take drinks to their movie seat unless the room is adults-only. Coleman said unlike the stands at a hockey game or out in a well-lit lobby, it’s difficult for operators to see if minors are sneaking drinks in a dark theatre. A multiplex cinema now has the option of designating one theatre for adults only and serving drinks, an approach that has caught on in other jurisdictions along with larger seats and tables.

The BOT position paper points to statistics from the 2011 Child Care Gap Assessment by the Children’s Partnership of Surrey-White Rock that show Surrey has only nine licensed child care spaces for every 100 children under six years of age. Surrey and Langley have the lowest ratio of spaces to children (compared to West Vancouver which has 25 spaces for every 100 children and Vancouver with 18 spaces for every 100 children).

Pocket dials from cellphones are being blamed for most of the more than 100,000 bogus 911 calls that took up operators’ time last year. An analysis of call statistics found 10 per cent of more than one million 911 calls received by the E-Comm regional emergency communications centre were dialed by mistake in 2011. E-Comm estimates more than 70,000 of those calls – 200 per day – were “pocket dials” in which cellphones in a pocket or purse dialed 911 by mistake. Growing use of smart phones are behind the increase as they now account for 58 per cent of 911 call volume – an all-time high and up 10 per cent in four years. E-Comm is asking the public to cut down on pocket calls by using keylocks, storing cell phones in protective cases and not preprogramming 911 into any phone.

Huberman says. “The result is higher absenteeism rates for this group of employees, greater turnover, and increased use of extended health benefits – all of which employers pay for.” In the absence of policy that responds to the declining standard of living for generations raising young children, costs are now displaced on to business, the paper states. It calculates the work-life conflict among employees with preschool age children costs the BC business community in excess of $600 million per year, and the Canadian business community in excess of $4 billion. Health Canada estimates that when work and family demands collide, it costs businesses up to $10 billion a year to cover the cost of

With this ring I thee wed... and generate 20 tons of waste White Rock gets a chance to go green by recycling their old gold this week

No one wants a guilty conscience on their wedding day, but most people are unaware that the production of a single gold wedding band creates at least twenty tons of waste and thirteen pounds of toxic emissions. That's right, that gleaming ring on your finger is not the result of the hard day's work of a bearded old prospector panning for gold, but the product of toxic chemistry. Because most of the world's large gold veins have been tapped out, miners are now resorting to chemical processes to leech small amounts of gold out of the earth. Large, open pit mines are created by blasting out the earth. The extracted ore is pulverized and then treated with a toxic chemical solution to separate the gold from the rock. Irresponsible mining practices in developing countries make this process extremely dangerous to the environment. Some of the largest mine sites move over half a million tons of earth per day, leaving scars on the earth that can be seen from space. Waste laced with thousands of tons of cyanide is being dumped into rivers and oceans. Yes, you read that correctly- cyanide, the same poison used for the mass murder of millions in the gas chambers during the holocaust. In 2000, a spill of 100,000 tons of toxic

waste from a gold mine in Romania cut off water supply to 2.5 million people and killed nearly every single fish in the surrounding area. But these accidents aren't just occurring in developing countries; in 2008 metal mining was the number one toxic polluter in the United States accounting for over 80% of arsenic, mercury and lead releases. The good news? Gold has an amazing propensity for recycling.

Most people are amazed at how much the gold that has been gathering dust in their jewellery box is actually worth. -Elli Reilander, The Gold Recyclers

"Old gold can be melted down, refined, and brought back into the market as new jewellery or even computer parts" says Elli Reilander, a gold-recycling representative for The Gold Recyclers- a family-run company bringing their services to malls all across Canada. "Recycling your old gold jewellery is a great way to do your part for the environment and make some extra cash while the price of gold is so high," says Reilander, "Most people are amazed

Some good items to recycle are broken chains, single earrings, pendants, damaged rings, items with missing stones and anything that you simply don’t wear anymore.

at how much the gold that has been gathering dust in their jewellery box is actually worth!" Gold recycling is not a new thing. In fact, The Gold Recyclers, who are based out of Sidney, B.C, have been in the gold-buying business for over 20 years. "It is only in the past year and a half, when the value of gold really started climbing, that we've been able to take to the road." says Reilander, "People are starting to view their old gold jewellery as an investment that they can sell when the time is right." The timing couldn't be better for The Gold Recyclers' 5 day gold-buying

event at the Ocean Promenade Hotel here in White Rock. Those who want to take advantage of the high price of gold and do their part for the environment are encouraged to come down to the Ocean Promenade Hotel on Marine Dr. this Thursday through Monday (April 19th-23rd), where The Gold Recyclers will be buying gold at their kiosk just off the hotel’s main lobby. Bring your broken or unused old gold necklaces, earrings, pendants, bracelets, rings and even dental gold. Their professional and experienced staff will sort your

gold by karat using a chemical assay, weigh it out, and give you an estimate based on the day's top market value of gold. If you are satisfied with your quote, they will write you a cheque on the spot. No appointments are necessary, just walk in with your old gold and leave richer. So, avoid a guilty conscience and recycle your gold. Who knows? Someday your old gold might be slipped onto someone's ring finger as a brand new wedding band, while their fiancée vows, "With this ring I thee wed... and save our earth from twenty tons of waste".

Men’s premier soccer squad loses to Surrey

PAU ousted in first round Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Boaz Joseph photo

Peace Arch’s Liam Breen (left) battles for position – and for the ball – with Surrey’s Vince Stewart Saturday, during the first round of the Provincial Cup. Surrey won the game 5-1, and advances to the second round.

Sometimes you get the bounces, sometimes you don’t. And members of Peace Arch United’s premier men’s soccer team know that as well as anyone after they were bounced from Provincial Cup contention Saturday, after a 5-1 first-round loss to their crosstown foes, Surrey United Firefighters. The four-goal margin of victory was not indicative of the closeness of the game, Peace Arch United manager John Collins insisted, but a few suspect calls went against his squad early, and they weren’t able to recover. For the first 25 minutes of the game, the teams battled to a scoreless draw, but Surrey took a 1-0 lead on a goal that hit a Surrey’s players hand – and changed direction – and snuck past Peace Arch goalkeeper Gyrish Kanaih, who was moving the opposite direction. Seven minutes later, Surrey made it 2-0 on a play that Collins said was off-side. Peace Arch finally got on the scoreboard midway through the second half when Taki Vohalis beat the Surrey netminder, but by then Surrey had potted another two goals and it was 4-1. “It’s unfortunate, but it is what it is,” said Collins, who has also been a part-time player for the squad this season. “We were playing really well until (the first goal), but then a few things happen and all of a sudden you’re up against it. “But we aren’t going to complain about a couple of calls – we didn’t do enough to overcome them, and that’s why we lost, but when you think about all the what-ifs, and maybe a bounce or two that didn’t go your way, it’s tough to swallow.” From his view from the opposite side of the field,

Surrey United head coach Niall Thomson didn’t feel like the game was as tightly contested as Collins suggested, adding that Surrey simply wasn’t able to capitalize on some early chances. “I think the only thing close was the score. We had a lot of chances at the beginning, and they held in there for awhile, but eventually we were able to put them away,” he said. “We had a game plan, and we really wanted to pressure their back line, and were able to do that, and it worked out for us.” Surrey United now advances to the second round of the Provincial Cup. They play West Vancouver Sunday at Vancouver’s Ambleside Park. Earlier this season, West Van beat Surrey in extra time to capture the Imperial Cup. “We’ve had some good battles with them,” Thompson said. Meanwhile for Peace Arch, Collins is instead choosing to take the longview of his team’s fortunes, rather than stew over the end of the season. After five Pakenham Cup titles in eight years, this was to be a transition year for PAU, Collins said. And in that regard, the season was a successful one, as many young players were given more responsibilities as the season progressed. And, as he’s quick to point out, their season was not ended by an inferior team – Surrey United has been one of the Provincial Cup powerhouses for years. “In the moment, you want to win every single game you’re in, but sometimes you have to step back and realize you can’t win every single thing every year,” Collins said. “Sometimes you have to have these transitions, and this season gets us one step closer to getting back (to the top). “I fully believe we’ll be one of the most competitive teams next year.”

sports White Rock beats Victoria Eagles 11-2

Tritons get first victory of season Sports Reporter

It took a few games longer than they’d hoped, but the White Rock Tritons are finally on the board with a win. The BC Junior Baseball League squad, which had lost its first three games of the season heading into the weekend, earned a split on the road against the Victoria Eagles, losing the first game 5-4 before storming back in the second, winning 11-2. “It’s a bit of a relief, for sure,” said coach Russ Smithson. The Tritons’ now sport a 1-4 record. Last Tuesday, White Rock lost 4-0 to the Langley Blaze and didn’t manage a single hit off Langley pitcher Jon Bauer, who pitched the first no-hitter of the PBL season. A sixth game, which was slated for last Thursday in Coquitlam against the Reds, was rained out. Sunday’s win at Victoria’s Lambrick Park was keyed by a five-run third inning in which the Tritons managed four hits and the Eagles made one fielding error. The rally began when Connor Kenwood reached base on an error by the Victoria first baseman, then Tony Tabor doubled and Jackson Temple was intentionally walked to load the bases. The next batter, Brett Walker, also walked, scoring

Kenwood, and then Kevin Irving singled to score Tabor and Temple. Cody Didyk’s single cashed in Walker for the fourth run, and two batters later, Irving scored on a Tanner Sandstrom sacrifice fly. In the bottom half of the inning, Victoria responded with a single run – Sam Stevenson scored on a sequence that included a stolen base, ground-rule double and an error. Victoria made it 5-2 in the sixth inning, but the visiting Tritons exploded for six more runs in the top of the seventh inning to put the game out of reach. White Rock brought 13 batters to the plate in the seventh, scoring six runs off just three hits and a pair of Victoria fielding miscues. Veteran pitcher Adam Shumka went the distance for White Rock on the mound, striking out seven and walking just one in seven innings of work. Tabor and Joel Lamont lead the Tritons with one double apiece. White Rock was also successful on the basepaths, stealing six bags – led by three successful swipes from Temple, who also went 2-for-3 at the plate to improve his season batting-average to .462. White Rock nearly won the first game of the doubleheader, too. They led 4-1 until the sixth inning – thanks

Bringing out the barbecue

When the warm weather hits, it’s time to dig out your barbecue and do some outdoor cooking.

By Maggie Calloway In North America outdoor living includes eating outdoors, which in turn means barbecuing. When one is thinking about cooking outdoors, Nash Shivji of The BBQ Shop in Port Coquitlam is the person to call. Twenty-five years in the business means there is nothing this gentleman doesn’t know about the subject.

Elevating your life By Maggie Calloway

Ben and his family enjoyed working with contractor Harald Koehn, right, while planning their Langley renovation. Koehn is the recipient of numerous local, provincial and national awards, including two Georgie Awards this year. Martin Knowles photo

Making a house a perfect home for Ben With the help of Harald Koehn, a local family now has a home that fits everyone. By Maggie Calloway Imagine if you will a family of five kids, one with spina bifida, and two adults all living in a 2,400-square-foot rancher which has seen, shall we say, better days. The imagination runs rampant thinking of long, dark, rainy winter weekends with high-energy kids trapped inside. Well not any more! After a total home renovation, this stunning home sitting on acreage in

Langley works for every member of this amazing family. Ten-year-old Ben, a dynamo on wheels, is now able to zoom around the whole house. Contractor Harald Koehn Construction Ltd., winner of numerous local, provincial and national awards for excellence, was a perfect fit with this family. The project was a collaboration between the family and the professionals to make sure every member had their needs addressed and while Ben’s needs, both now and into the future, were integral to the design, this needed to be a home in the real sense of the word. “The bones of the house were basically good so it was a smooth transition,” Koehn says. “We were able to create what they were looking for

within the new 4,400 square feet. The old house was not energy-efficient and none of the family had privacy. The difference for the family is lifechanging.” The project took a year to complete. There were many different things at play in the renovation. One was Ben’s mobility, but the house was inefficient in many ways, and there was also a need for the new house to meet the needs of the family while the children were still at home and, if the parents wish, to age in place. Built in a style similar to houses seen in Whistler, the home now includes a great room, dining

We are hearing a lot lately about aging in place. This single subject will become more and more important over the next few years as our population ages. Research shows the very best thing for our aging population is to stay in the neighbourhood they know, if at all possible. We all need a sense of community and that basic need doesn’t change as we age; in fact it’s just the opposite. Knowing your neighbours, your doctor, dentist and shoe repair store is a major part of belonging. As the theme song of Cheers said, “Everyone knows your name.” Staying in place is sometimes easier said than done. If the home is on multiple levels and mobility is an issue, moving or finding another solution is paramount. With 35 years in the business, partners Alan Bodnaruk and Cam Pomeroy of Western Elevators are certainly in that category. “There are a variety of ways the home can be modified to assist movement in the home from level to level,” Bodnaruk says. “Stairlifts, a sturdy chair assembly unit that travels up and down on a steel rail mounted to the staircase, are the easiest to install. They may be straight, curved, or custom

Come home to natural gas Natural gas offers comfort, convenience and value Your home is perhaps your most important investment. It costs money to maintain it, and needs energy to run it. By choosing the right energy for the right use, you can maximize energy efficiency and value for your energy dollars. Natural gas is a good choice for heating, whether it’s hot water for a shower or warmth from the furnace or fireplace. It’s also great for barbecuing burgers on the patio. And, with the variety of stylish natural gas appliances and rebates available, upgrading your appliances to natural gas is more affordable. Find energy efficiency rebates that meet your needs at fortisbc.com/offers.

Natural gas makes your summers seem endless A natural gas barbecue never runs out of fuel. If you have a natural gas patio heater or fire pit, you can stay outside long after summer‘s over. And when that blustery storm hits, you can stay warm and well fed with a natural gas fireplace and range. Both will continue working during a power outage. For comfort, convenience and value balance your home’s energy mix with natural gas. Visit fortisbc.com/savingenergy to watch our video on how natural gas fits into your everyday life.

Choices to fit your life Stylish, convenient natural gas appliances increase the comfort of your home, indoors and out. Find out more about energy efficient appliances at fortisbc.com/gasappliances. Furnaces and boilers Heating systems provide even warmth and comfort throughout the home. Cooktops, ovens and ranges Chefs prefer natural gas for instant heat, a variable flame and precise temperature control. Barbecues With a quick connect you’ll never lift a propane tank or worry about running out of fuel. Dryers Natural gas dryers heat up instantly and dry your clothes with gentle warmth for fewer wrinkles.

Fireplaces Fireplaces provide ambience and cosy warmth. An outdoor fireplace, firepit or patio heater can extend those summer evenings.

Let energy saving start with a rebate

Backup power A natural gas generator can power your lights, electronics and refrigerator during a power outage. Water heaters Storage tank water heaters heat water faster than electric models. On-demand water heaters save space and heat water only as needed.

Don’t be a drip A hot water tap, dripping every second, wastes 720 litres of water per month. That’s about 10 hot baths.* * Based on assumption of 3,600 drips/hour, 4,000 drips=1 litre, and 72L per bath.

Harald Koehn Construction turns a Langley residence into a dream home â&#x20AC;&#x153; from page.1 room and kitchen combination. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You get a great feeling of space, and the connection to the outside, through the three sets of French doors, flows naturally. There is a large patio with a pool and hot tub off the great room and no lip or step so Ben can come and go at will,â&#x20AC;? Koehn says. The house was stripped completely inside and out. The centre of the home was opened up to create the great room and dining room using a timber frame structure, creating soaring fourteen-foot ceilings. The garage stayed as it was but a new bedroom wing was added which gave the family two large bedrooms, a bathroom and a laundry room. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our climate is so rainy and grey for a lot of the year we maximized the opportunity to bring in as much light as possible,â&#x20AC;? Koehn says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We used distressed oak throughout the great room and dining room ... The kitchen works perfectly for everyone including Ben. There are a couple of areas especially for Ben; a lowered sink area and a bar fridge for cold snacks and at the end of the kitchen island there is a separate lower counter. We also placed the microwave lower so Ben can help himself.â&#x20AC;? There is a contained suite of around 400 square feet for Ben including a bedroom and bathroom. The bathroom vanity is lower, there is a jetted tub, and the separate shower is large with no sill. The whole floor of the bathroom has a special membrane under the tile which channels water into the drainage system. In addition the floor is electrically heated so any water will dry up quickly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On the ceiling there is a track system with a lift so Ben can go right from the bathroom through to his bed which again will add to independence,â&#x20AC;? Koehn says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bedroom is multipurpose with the bed, storage and

then another little area where, when Ben gets older, they can put in a sofa and chairs; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s set up with TV, so he can entertain his friends. The door to the outside from his bedroom is automated by pushing a button, again to lend independence. Everything has been thought through to give as much accessibility and independence as possible.â&#x20AC;? The brilliance of this home is, even with the necessity of building in accessibility, nothing looks or feels contrived or institutional. Steve Riley of S.P. Riley Residential Design and Koehn worked hard to make sure that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Steve Riley did a fabulous job both on the original design and making the necessary adjustments as the job progressed ... He was very critical in making this project work,â&#x20AC;? says Koehn. The exterior of the home is dramatic but also subtle. The sidewalks change elevation seamlessly and complement the home; this was done by building up the terrain so that the ramps become pathways. Darlene is the mother of this large brood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was so important to build a home that worked for the whole family. A lot of thought and planning went into every bit of the house,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to get it right because we plan on being here for a long time. Ben is a full member of the family and now he is able to completely participate in family life. I would like to acknowledge the Vancouver Foundation for giving us a grant under their â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;accessible housing programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to help with the part of the renovation that affected Ben. We really appreciate the help they gave us.

The new house is perfect for Ben and his family, with upgrades meant just for him such as exterior ramps, above, a lowered counter and sink in the kitchen, left, and his own dedicated bedroom and bathroom, below. Martin Knowles photos

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want anyone who is building a new home or renovating to realize itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not that hard to include little things that make it accessible. If they end up in a wheelchair after surgery or need a walker ... they need at least one entrance they can use to get into the house. Simple things such as making doors wide enough or planning for an elevator are easy to do when building but difficult to accommodate after the fact.â&#x20AC;?

The heat of the summer â&#x20AC;&#x153; from page.1 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some very interesting things are happening in the business. One of the big things is reasonably priced barbecues are now available with many of the features previously only available on high-priced models, features like rotisserie and rear burners,â&#x20AC;? Shivji says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Barbecues priced around $1,000, made in Canada or the U.S. ... are very well built with lots of bells and whistles. We scour suppliers to source out North American-built product. ... They are very well built and they come with a good warranty. There are some exceptions but readers in the market for a new barbecue, or other outdoor cooking product, should make sure the product is well made by a known brand, ... has a warranty and that replacement parts are available.â&#x20AC;? Shivji has a word of caution for people in the market for a new natural gas barbecue: check that the fittings are compatible with your home connection. It is frustrating for the person who has to go from store to store trying to match up the couplings. Shivji has plenty of advice for people looking to purchase a new barbecue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;First, make sure there is the good ten-year war-

ranty which means the manufacturer will stand behind their product. Secondly, the way the burners and valves are placed in the barbecue is very important. You need precision so that they heat evenly across the whole area. ... When you want high heat for searing meat or low heat for a roast you want to be able to count on your barbecue to deliver. Look for a manufacturer whose primary business is building barbecues; they are up on the new technology and the materials they use are very solid and stable. Thirdly, if you like to use the rotisserie for roasts or chicken, look for a rear burner which will give you the even heat you need in exactly the right place.â&#x20AC;? You should decide exactly how you are going to use your new barbecue. If the extent of your interest is hamburgers and hot dogs, simple is better. But if all your warm-weather cooking is done on the barbie, something more sophisticated is in order. After twenty-five years in the business, Shivji is still passionate. He feels he is not just selling barbecues but helping families have a great experience which will encourage more gettogethers with family, friends and neighbours.

Awnings an integral part of summer life By Maggie Calloway The sun is finally shining, and soon you will be looking for some relief from the heat. My master bedroom faces south and although I love the four big windows looking out onto my property, it can get brutal when the temperature rises. I installed a fantastic lateral arm awning (when I say me, I really mean a couple of strong male friends), which cuts the temperature down by at least 20 degrees. One of the great things about it is that I can vary the angle and when it is closed it tucks under my eaves so I can leave it up all year. Having the awning is the difference between sleeping through the night and not during the heat of the summer, which should be coming soon if this spring weather holds. When you think of awnings, you probably think of the canvas striped fabric that features prominently in movies, TV and our own childhood. However, there are a lot more options out there. Not being anywhere near an expert on various kinds of awnings, Phil Lemke at Langley Awning and Signs was tops on my list of people to call. “Customers come to us for a variety of reasons and not just in the summer,” he says. “It could be (because) rain is damaging their door and they need a fixed-frame awning for shelter. We are coming into the season when people are spending a lot of time outdoors and people are looking for shelter from the sun. Also, we install retractable awnings over hot tubs and pools for protection from both the sun and the rain. Even when it’s raining it’s great to be able to barbecue under cover.”

There are now remote controls for motorized awnings, and some can float in your hot tub with you. To get really fancy, there are wind sensors available which will retract the awning automatically when the wind kicks up even if you are not home. There are some with sun sensors; if you are not home and it’s a hot sunny day the awning will come out on its own. When you get home you can enjoy that cool drink on a cool patio or deck. “Vertical roll-up curtains are great for privacy from neighbours on a deck or to shield a hot tub and just like a retractable awning, (they) can be handcranked or motorized,” Lemke says. “You can have a drop curtain with any colour of fabric, even a fine mesh which allows you to see out but the neighbours can’t see in.” Roll shutters serve a completely different purpose. These are aluminum slats which roll up into a head box. These are primarily for security. If the family is away for part of the year they can seal up their house. When these shutters are down it doesn’t look like a fortress; it just looks like there are no windows if the colour matches the exterior. There truly is an awning or shutter for every purpose. If you’re like me, a good night’s sleep is a great reason to install one.

Awnings and shutters are a great addition to your home, especially in the hot summer months when you’re looking for a bit of shade. There are many options available, says Phil Lemke of Langley Awning and Signs. Submitted photos

Take moving house to a whole new level with Nickel Bros. By Maggie Calloway British Columbia is the proud location of a company who has been doing big-time recycling for the past 56 years. Nickel Bros., formed in 1956 by Henry and his brother Richard and now with the third generation of the family working in the business, recycles houses! The brothers were from Manitoba where house and barn moving was not uncommon, but the idea was mostly unknown in the west. The company, who is well-known for moving houses here, also moves pretty well anything big which needs to get “there from here.” Henry, at the fabulous age of 86, still loves to get out to the moves to watch them happen and lend the younger generations the benefit of his vast experience. Rick Picard, who has worked for Nickel Bros. for many years, is a wealth of information. “It wasn’t long after Henry and Richard started moving houses for customers that they realized the amazing resource of buildings scheduled for demolition. They started that end of the business, saving buildings, reselling them and then moving them to the new site,” he says. The company website holds an ever-changing list of houses

of all types and styles for sale and ready to be moved. Need a home for your island vacation spot? No problem, the house can be barged and then erected on the new spot. If you are in the market for a first home or a retirement home, why settle for a 400-square-foot condo when you can buy a great rancher for around $50,000, build a new foundation on your lot and have the home delivered? And speaking of a new foundation, the home is delivered and left on risers in the exact spot you stipulate, four feet high for a crawl space or slab and around nine feet for a basement. Before the foundation is dug plumb weights are hung from each corner of the house, then the foundation is dug and poured with such precision they are never out more than a quarter of an inch. Once the foundation is in place, Nickel Bros. returns and lowers the house onto Nickel Bros. has been in the business of moving houses since 1956, and still the foundation. You are immediately much continues to be one of the go-to companies for such a project. further up on the property ladder. Martin Knowles photos

Family game nights an excuse to play pool shark By Maggie Calloway Your home has been renovated and you now have this lovely big room with your new big screen TV for watching movies or hockey games, but it is a bit empty, a bit lonely. What to do? Nick Vinciguerra, owner of Classic Games and Billiards, has loads of great ideas for every member of the family. “Poker is still huge, especially now (that) we have high-stakes poker tournaments on television, people want their own authentic poker table and chips,” says Vinciguerra. “We have all styles; temporary tables you can put on top of a dining table or flip tops, it just depends what the client has room for in their home.” If you have fond memories of playing billiards in the basement, you’ll be pleased to know that billiards is still with us.

Finding the perfect door like finding the key to your home By Maggie Calloway When I renovated my home years ago I replaced two doors that had been driving me crazy ever since I bought the house. The doors were hollow-core and every time I used them I gritted my teeth. They represented exactly what not to do and they felt like exactly what they were, cheaply made. I like a door with some heft and some solidness when swinging open and closed. I had a rule when renovating over the years: I would not buy something twice and until I decided where the door openings were going to be and what kind of door would be appropriate I would suffer in silence. Okay, sometimes not so silent. Glen Creer of Doors Vancouver gave me this credo: A door is like a key; it needs to fit the house if it’s going to be of any use. This means several things must work, including jamb thickness, overall height and width, swing direction and egress, material, glazing, tempering, thickness and fire rating, among other things. “A door is the entrance into what could easily be a room worth $50,000 and should be equal to the quality of the room,” Creer says. “It would be more than a little jarring to have a door which doesn’t fit the style of either the room or the whole house.” Creer has a very interesting take on the relationship between the economy since the 1920s and the style and quality of doors. He gave me a quick master class. The 1920s was the decade of the craftsman; lots of local high-quality woods and man power so the product was exceptionally great. The 1930s were the Depression years. The quality and the degree of decoration went down, and these years saw the emergence of the shaker style: no mouldings and very plain. The 1940s saw the beginning of the veneer

doors because of the ability of the industry to create an engineered product, and the 1950s was the decade of mass production, with the beginning of the hollow-core door. The 1960s started the use of higher quality materials due to the involvement of architecture, while the 1970s was the start of the interest rate crunch and a general downgrading of the quality of the finished door. The 1980s was survival as the interest rates skyrocketed and most available money went

to the bank not to the tradesman. It was therefore the decade of poorest quality. The 1990s saw the lowering of interest rates so the greater percentage of available money was going to the trades. We saw the start of the much higher-quality product. The first decade of this century sees low interest rates and influx of wealthy clientele. Both of these translate into extraordinary quality going into both new and renovated homes.

Nowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good time to start planting your vegetables You may not be able to grow every vegetable, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible to grow something even in a small space. By Maggie Calloway One of the best things anyone can do for themselves is grow as much of their own food as possible. I am so passionate about this I have 54 12â&#x20AC;&#x2122; x 4â&#x20AC;&#x2122; raised beds on my property. I love being able to grow a lot of my food. I refer to my veggie garden as my forty-foot diet, not only because it is obviously healthy to pick organically grown food out of my own garden but because I also love the feeling of being as self-sustaining as possible. I know I am blessed living on enough property to grow so much but you will be amazed at how much you can grow in a smaller space, even on a balcony. You are not going to grow tons of different vegetables but what about concentrating on growing all your own salad fixings? There are some great decorative tubs available and your secret weapon is how much you can grow vertically and in hanging baskets. My go-to person on all things regarding growing organic vegetables is the amazing Carolyn Herriot. She wrote The Zero-Mile Diet, which is a year-round guide to growing fabulous veggies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The very first thing, and the most important, is to build great soil. Everything starts with the soil; you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have great vegetables and fruit if they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pull nutrition from the earth,â&#x20AC;? Herriot says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Save all your vegetable and fruit scraps, rake up your fallen leaves in the fall, all your grass clippings, and pile in your compost bins. In this climate we can grow vegetables all year round, so getting the soil right is paramount.â&#x20AC;? If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already have a prepared area in your garden to grow vegetables and the thought of digging out your lawn makes you shudder, there is a great way to build new beds using the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lasagna Method.â&#x20AC;? Herriot has a great section in her book giving instructions and I have used this method to great success in the past. First, decide the perimeters of the garden or bed then cover with a thick dusting of dolomite lime followed with a two-inch layer of manure, fresh or aged. Next, cover with a layer of plain cardboard, overlapping layers but omitting any coloured ink. Wet it down thoroughly then add a mixed layer of hay, grass clippings and leaves fol-

lowed by another layer of aged manure and then rake until itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s level. Top everything with a half-yard of topsoil and water well. You can plant right away into the top layer and because of the high fertility of the bed, you can plant pretty intensively. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be discouraged if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a sunny garden or balcony because there are lots of things you can grow; leafy greens, peas, chard, kale and beet greens for example. And donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget pots of herbs. Be adventurous and grow exotic herbs to infuse Indian and Chinese dishes. The main thing is donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be intimidated. There isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a gardener in the whole world who knows everything about gardening. Everyone has successes and failures; one year the tomatoes and carrots are fantastic the next year a dismal failure. Who cares, just get out there, I know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll love it.

Aging in place possible with options from Western Elevators â&#x20AC;&#x153; from page.1 fitted. Stairlifts are very easy to use, very secure and can be folded out of the way when not in use.â&#x20AC;? A stairlift is a great solution for most but if a member of the family is in a wheelchair another method is necessary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our next product is a Porchlift or a Decklift. This unit is a platform used outside to assist a family member to change levels such as from the car to a deck on the second or main floor,â&#x20AC;? Bodnaruk says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This works great for many applications but the con is itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outside so if you want to change levels inside you would have to go outside in sometimesinclement weather. This is perfect if you are coming or going from the house and works if you cannot install an elevator inside the house because of physical space.â&#x20AC;? This brings us to the ultimate people mover, the residential elevator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To install a residential elevator we are looking at approximately a 5â&#x20AC;&#x2122; x 6â&#x20AC;&#x2122; area where we would build a shaft. We need rooms that line up above each other and enough room to take that footprint for the elevator,â&#x20AC;? Bodnaruk says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In other words we need rooms big enough to allocate the space. Another alternative, if the house is not big enough, is to put the elevator shaft on the outside of the house if there is enough room without intruding on a neighbour. Installing an elevator is the most expensive option because of the higher cost of an elevator plus work involved such as construction costs and, depending on the placement, we often have to move plumbing and electrical then refinish floors. The good news is installing an elevator gives total mobility throughout the home to all family members and increases the value of the home.â&#x20AC;? Lots of options to consider when deciding whether to stay in your home and modify where needed or move. Moving is an expensive business and you may find staying where you love, and making the necessary improvements, is comparable.

Cam Pomeroy, left, and Alan Bodnaruk have been in the business of helping people age in place for years. Options including a stairlift, above and below, or a residential elevator are ways to continue living in your multi-level home. Martin Knowles photos

GVHBA announces Ovation Award nominees By Kerry Vital The Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association will be giving a standing Ovation to its finalists at its third annual Ovation Awards this month, which honour excellence in new home and renovation design, construction, accessibility, sustainability, affordability, energy efficiency and heritage restoration. The list of finalists in 41 categories was released late last month. Among the group is Kenorah Construction & Design, ParkLane Homes, Portrait Homes and My House Design/Build Team, among many others. “Last year, Vancouver-area homebuilders spent nearly $4 billion on home renovation, and builders started construction on 17,867 new homes,” says GVHBA President and CEO Peter Simpson. “Residential construction is a major contributer to Metro Vancouver’s economy and the GVHBA is delighted to partner with FortisBC and the Homeowner Protection Office to honour the industry’s brightest stars.” Among the renovators, My House Design/ Build Team was nominated for nine awards, including Best Kitchen Renovation: $100,000 and over and Best Custom Home: $1 million to $2 million.
