Barricades installed as BC Hydro customers battle smart meters

Residents aim to take back the power Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Wireless opponents are taking their stand against BC Hydro’s installation of smart meters up a notch, moving to prevent their analogue meters from being replaced. Citing concerns that the new meters will impact their health, invade their privacy and drive up their power bills, some opponents of the program have taken to wrapping or caging the equipment with a protective barrier.

“I can’t have a smart meter on this house,” said South Surrey resident Lynda Honing, explaining that all three issues factored into her decision to cage the meter that tracks her family’s power use. “If they put one on my house, I’ll get someone to take it off.” But officials with the utility company say there is no need for the extreme measure. Most people taking the step are basing the decision on misinformation, said BC Hydro

communications manager Cindy Verschoor. The meters “communicate” with the power company for a total of 2.74 seconds over 48 hours, don’t collect any more information on customers than the old meters and, once fully in place, will actually provide more accurate billing, Verschoor said Tuesday. Barricading them can cause more problems than it prevents, she noted. “We’re delivering electricity to the home  see page 8

Ryan Ashe – who’s lived on the streets of White Rock for years – must move from his latest encampment, bordering a Johnston Road bus stop.

Homeless man to be moved from bus-stop area after numerous complaints to city

‘What makes them more important than me?’ Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A man who has called various corners of uptown White Rock home for more than a decade will be made to move this week. Mayor Wayne Baldwin said the city has no option but to have Ryan Ashe relocate, after fielding more than a dozen calls daily over the past two weeks regarding his settlement at a bus stop near Johnston Road and Thrift Avenue. “We’re getting a lot of complaints,” Baldwin said Monday. “We just can’t have somebody camping on the street.” Ashe disagrees. “Why would I want to move?” he said Tues-

day morning, when told of the complaints. “We all get complaints. I get complaints every day. I just ignore them. “There is no issue, and since there is no issue, why should there be any complaints?” Baldwin said the situation arose after blue construction fencing went up around the lot at the intersection’s northeast corner. Ashe had in recent months been staying in landscape shrubbery at the farthest northeast tip of the lot, his belongings tucked away from the sidewalk and, for the most part, out of sight. But that changed when Ashe was forced to vacate. He set up camp just metres away, by the bus shelter on the east side of Johnston Road.

His belongings were piled immediately adjacent to the shelter, covered with tarps that are secured with Zap Straps to the temporary fencing. Baldwin noted shopping carts of Ashe’s belongings often clutter the sidewalk, and callers – women in particular – have reported feeling like they can’t use the shelter to wait for the bus. “We’re going to have to move him,” he said. Acknowledging that Ashe has been a fixture of sorts in White Rock for years without issue, the mayor said it was Ashe’s takeover of the shelter and sidewalk that prompted the latest decision. Before, “it wasn’t in everybody’s face,” Baldwin said. “Now it is.”  see page 4

A 76-year-old man is listed in critical condition after falling from his bike when it blew a tire near 184 Street and 32 Avenue early Tuesday morning. The man, originally described as an 82 year-old by Surrey RCMP, was airlifted to Royal Columbian Hospital shortly after the accident and was still in the intensive care unit at press time Wednesday. Police said the accident occurred around 7 a.m. and traffic was reduced to one lane only in the vicinity for two hours afterwards. “The cyclist was not hit,” said Cpl. Barb Creighton, adding the man, who sustained head injuries, had not been wearing a cycling helmet. “He was out biking at a high rate of speed, downhill, when his front tire blew.” Creighton said the man was projected over the handlebars and landed headfirst on the ground. “It’s the law to wear helmets, and it’s for cyclists’ safety,” she said. “A lot of people don’t wear helmets, but this is a good example of why they should.”

problems, and a majority of mayors voting against the additional property tax isn’t surprising, given that the province has cut off almost all other funding alternatives. However, it’s simply wrong that mayors of Burnaby, New Westminster and Vancouver, who enjoy transit service Surrey residents can only dream about, can so capriciously cut off a service here that many were planning to use. It’s time that South Fraser MPs, MLAs and mayors rise to protest the complete snubbing of this community, and disregard for taxpayers’ dollars already spent to provide this park and ride lot – and a bus-only lane on the new bridge. The way this issue has been handled shows just how out of touch TransLink is with those south of the Fraser, who provide it with significant tax revenues. Jarvis said TransLink’s first priority is to keep existing services operating. This means it is more important to run mostly-empty buses in Burnaby at 11 p.m. than to run buses from Langley and Surrey to the Lougheed SkyTrain station during rush hour. If this decision is not reversed quickly, South Fraser leaders will likely have just one alternative – to begin planning an exit from TransLink. A separate system here that connects to TransLink would likely be better-run and it would most definitely serve the needs of residents on this side of the river.

news Coun. Helen Fathers criticizes White Rock council decision to reject a grant for her program

‘Slap in the face’ to not fund city market Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

White Rock council has given unanimous support to doling out $25,800 worth of grants-in-aid. But the fact some applicants – and in particular the White Rock Farmers’ Market – were denied funds did not sit well with one councillor. Coun. Helen Fathers, who, in her role as manager of the market, had requested $5,000 to support a new kids chef pro-

gram this season, said criteria that committee members used to determine the grants was not applied equally. “I don’t understand why some organizations are given it and some organizations aren’t,” Fathers told Peace Arch News Tuesday. “It’s kind of a slap in the face.” Council voted Monday to award 30 grants-in-aid; 35 applications were considered. Funds awarded range in value from $250 to $4,000, and benefit groups in four categories: social, cultural, ath-

letic/sports and other. Recipients included Kids Help Phone ($250), Peninsula Arts Foundation ($1,000), White Rock Players Club ($1,500), RCAC 2812 Seaforth Highlanders ($750) and Community of Lights Events Society ($4,000). In addition to the request by the farmers’ market, applications for grants from Sources Community Resource Center, White Rock South Surrey Foundation and White Rock/South Surrey Stroke

Recovery Branch were also denied. At the start of Monday’s council meeting, market president Tina Lambert questioned why the non-profit group was left out, pointing out the city had endorsed the market in January. Prior to voting on the matter, Fathers – noting she would have declared a conflict of interest had the market’s application been approved – questioned Coun. Helen Fathers the process.  see page 4 market manager

For politicians, Surrey’s annual day-long Vaisakhi Parade this Saturday offers a golden opportunity to connect with thousands of voters and bolster their standing in the South Asian community. In that way, it’s akin to the stock market – the rewards mean politicians can’t afford not to be there, but it also exposes them to risks. “Where else would you get such a big audience? For people in public office, it’s a bonanza,” says Dr. Gulzar Cheema, a former BC Liberal MLA. Politicians don’t have to spend a cent to get exposure, Cheema said. Nor do they have to pay for Dr. Gulzar Cheema floats or do much beyond show up, say a few words in Punjabi, enjoy the food and smile for the cameras. “Those pictures are very attractive in an election campaign,” he said. With a provincial election looming in one year, the leaders of the major parties are certain to attend, Cheema said, along with many MLAs and challengers, as well as federal and municipal leaders. “They will be climbing over each other,” he predicts. “In Surrey, if you’re not part of the parade you can just kiss goodbye to your political career. If any of the leaders of the three parties don’t show up, they’re going to be in trouble. They have no choice.” The risk of attending is that somewhere in the crowd of up to 200,000 are those who back an independent Sikh state and would honour or justify past terrorist crimes, such as the Air India bombings. No politician wants to be associated with such controversies. Cheema said skilled handlers steer their candidate away from any bad optics at the event. They will also carefully select who walks alongside the candidate during the parade for photos and video. The parade route is dotted with stages hosted by various groups, and Cheema said candidates are wise to associate themselves with a safe stage – one that will keep a

Family and cultural activities at Surrey’s Vaisakhi Parade make it appealing for politicians; potential controversies make it risky.

middle-of-the-road tone. Even with precautions and “feelers” fanned out in the crowd looking for trouble, things can go awry. “This parade has made many politicians and it has sunk many politicians,” Cheema said. A candidate can end up in photos with someone whose past turns out to be checkered. Even if photos of so-called martyrs aren’t publicly visible at the parade, someone might pick up a microphone and say something troubling. A poorly prepared politician can even bungle their own words. “If you say something stupid, it’s going to be on YouTube within 10 minutes. By the time you leave, it’s going to be major news.”

No politician would make a mistake like failing to don the required head covering as the Sikh holy book approaches. But politicians are given robes of honour that they sometimes shed too fast as they exit, which is seen as disrespectful. Some politicians choose to exploit the parade as a launch pad for a campaign or issue, he said, noting the worst offenders aren’t locals but politicians from India who use the event to their own advantage because of the enduring links between Surrey and the Punjab. Cheema argues Ottawa should do more to screen Indian politicians and that those with a history of inciting violence or hatred should be denied visitor’s visas. SFU marketing professor Lindsay Meredith said many of the lessons for politicians at the Vaisakhi Parade also apply to businesses that aim to build their brands and customer base. “You are known by the friends you keep,” he said. “It’s not just a slam

dunk. You have to do your homework. You have to know who you’re holding hands with.” Like politicians, businesses see the parade as a perfect platform to reach masses of Punjabi-speaking Metro Vancouverites. Tactically, Meredith said, there are parallels to Vancouver’s gay-pride parade. “Again you have a well-defined target market,” Meredith said. “But it’s not a target market you dive into without doing your homework and without some element of risk associated with it.” Firms need to be careful their courting of South Asian customers doesn’t undercut their marketing in the broader community, he said. As a cautionary tale, he cites malls in Richmond that switched to allChinese signage: “They have basically walked away from the nonChinese shopping contingent.” The Vaisakhi Parade begins and ends at the Gurdwara Dashmesh Darbar Temple, 12885 85 Ave. from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

‘Ruthless’ decisions defended  from page 3 Two committee members – Couns. Al Campbell and Larry Robinson – defended it. “Our rationale was, how great a need?” said Campbell, who chairs the grants-in-aid committee. “We came in on budget.” Noting grant requests totalled $82,519, Robinson said none of the applicants got what they asked for. “If they were lucky, they received half,” he said, describing

cuts made to grants in the social category as “pretty ruthless.” Of funds available to distribute, $4,000 was held back in the event of late applicants in dire need. Of five unsuccessful applications, four were in the social category. Criteria for grants-in-aid include that applicants must be community-run and that the funds not be used to pay off debts. Robinson said the committee also considered whether the

applicants were receiving in-kind support; specific to the farmers’ market, they factored in that vendors are making money. “Bottom line, we’re providing a place for people to make profit,” he said. Fathers took issue with the comment, pointing out that at least three of the successful applicants also provide a place for vendors to make money. “(Criteria) has not been applied… across the board,” she said.

Ashe has rejected shelter in past  from page 1 Baldwin didn’t know exactly when Ashe would be approached to move, but said it would be this week, and hopefully with the assistance of people who can offer him resources; likely a representative of Sources Community Resource Centre and White Rock community policing. In the past, Ashe has refused offers of shelter. He told Peace Arch News in December 2008 that he feared catching “social disease” and believed that those making the offer interfered with his aura. The current situation is one some area residents had predicted would happen. Peter Saunders told PAN last week that he is worried about what might happen to Ashe, who, he said, many people in the com-

Saunders said Ashe doesn’t bother anybody, and believes citizens care about him, in part, because they realize their own good fortune. “I think that people, myself included, think that but for the grace of God go I, sort of thing,” he said. Saunders is hopeful a local business will see fit to let Ashe settle in behind a shop or in a laneway; somewhere off the beaten path. Ashe – who says he has lived on the streets for 23 years, and lives with the effects of severe head injuries suffered in a car

crash more than two decades ago – said he hasn’t moved more than two blocks in the past 10 years, and he can’t see why others’ concerns are being given precedence over his privacy. “What makes people with issues more important than I? “Do you see anybody in the parking lot there?” he said, motioning to an empty Hillcrest Plaza lot across the street. “You see anybody behind me? Then who’s complaining?” Asked what will happen if Ashe resists relocating, Baldwin said officials will “cross that bridge when we come to it.” - with files from Sarah Massah

Scene of the crash on 16 Avenue in South Surrey.

School bus driver killed

Not-guilty plea in traffic fatality The man charged in connection with a Jan. 18, 2011 crash that killed South Surrey resident Jim Neiss has pleaded not guilty to dangerous driving causing death. The plea was entered for Glen Edwards Theriault by his lawyer, Maegan Richards, during a brief appearance in Surrey Provincial Court Wednesday. Theriault did not attend. Neiss, 59, died just after 5:30 a.m. when his eastbound Ford Explorer was hit head-on in the 19800-block of 16 Avenue by a Sterling dump truck that had reportedly crossed a double-yellow line to pass a small white car. The force of the impact compressed the front section of the Jim Neiss Explorer into less than half its victim width. Neiss – a bus driver with the Langley School District since 2003 – had been on his way to work. The dump truck driver, identified at the time of the crash as a Burnaby resident, was treated at the scene and released. A charge against Theriault was laid 10 months later. Wednesday, Richards estimated five days would be needed for a trial. Prosecutor Jim Lees told the court the Crown’s case “will take at least three days.” “This matter isn’t likely going to be set down for at least a year,” he added. A trial date was not set by Peace Arch News press deadline Wednesday. - Tracy Holmes

Taxes and tolls change drivers’ behaviour

T

ransLink’s annual report makes for some fascinating reading. Gas tax revenue actually declined in 2011, falling $12 million from the $324 million collected in 2010. While there is no evidence that people are driving significantly less, it is obvious that many are doing their best to avoid the TransLink tax. That’s why some people travel to the U.S. to gas up, often with a number of jerry cans. Others head to Abbotsford or Mission, where gas prices are lower because there is no TransLink tax. TransLink just boosted the gas tax by two cents a litre, but the net effect may be to turn a trickle of tax evaders into a much larger stream. The mayors who backed the higher gas tax claim that another $40 million will be raised. It is quite likely that this target will not be met. While some drivers will continue to fill up in Metro Vancouver, many others will not. When the higher gas taxes are combined with the higher limits for bringing back U.S. goods duty-free, which go into effect on June 1, this tax boost may do little other than drive more shoppers across the border. This is hardly good for the local economy, and would seem to be a self-defeating measure. Transit ridership in 2011 was at record levels, with ridership up 8.6 per cent. This is likely due, at least in part, to widened use of U-Passes by university students. While transit fares collected totalled $444 million, one wonders how much more would be collected if all riders were made to pay fares, and if fines were collected. Golden Ears Bridge tolls totalled $33.7 million, almost 11 per cent less than TransLink had expected to collect. Overall Golden Ears traffic was up, which seems to indicate that more people are using it as a travel alternative. The higher traffic levels may also be related to more economic activity. It will be interesting to see how the bridge use changes when the new Port Mann Bridge opens. Tolls on the two will be similar, but the Golden Ears may get more use by people who have thus far avoided tolls by using the Port Mann.

Once it was set up, I fired the link around to some friends, posted it on both Facebook and Twitter, and waited. I expected a few responses, and maybe – at best – a hundred or so votes. After Day 1, my little tournament had 2,900 hits. After five rounds, narrowing 64 cartoon characters down to just two, nearly 4,000 votes had been cast in total. I don’t have the stats in front of me right now, but I doubt there are many stories I’ve written for the Peace Arch News that have received that many hits online in that short a timespan. Which brings me back to my original point, that it’s damn near impossible to predict what will interest people or set them off. In my career as a reporter, I’ve written on athletes who’ve overcome odds to reach the Olympics, I’ve covered popular high-school tournaments, car crashes and – speaking of disasters – even the Vancouver Canucks. But nothing has reached the popularity of my Simpsons Madness bracket, where one Facebook commenter said the most difficult part was choosing between Hank Scorpio and Springfield’s Crazy Cat Lady in the opening round. Life should be so hard. Oh, and by the way, in the final showdown, Ned Flanders was crowned champion after narrowly defeating Mr. Burns, Springfield’s nefarious powerplant owner. Let the angry letters begin. Nick Greenizan is the sports reporter at the Peace Arch News. He voted for Flanders.

We must take a stand together Editor: There is a home in South Surrey that has had an addition added on without any building permit being issued and has had no inspections. I have been told by the City of Surrey that a stop-work order has been issued, but work continues as of this afternoon. Is the building of an addition to a dwelling without a building permit and being built too close to the property line – as well as whatever property owners want to do without the proper approval and building permits – any concern to the residents of Surrey? I believe it is, and it concerns all of us. We all recently followed the situation regarding the trees being cut down unlawfully in White Rock which resulted in a very minimal fine (Fine ends tree fight, April 5). It would appear that people can do whatever they want and suffer no real consequences other than paying a small fine. They do things with the full knowledge that they are in breech of the laws and bylaws but do not care. They know that the consequences will be small in nature and is well worth their time and money to just play ignorant. Is this the message we want to send throughout our community? Is it not time to send the message that we will no longer tolerate wrongdoings in our communities and we should all stand together to make the rules stand and mean something to all of us?

Borderline brouhaha Editor: On Sunday, after 10 days on the road and 5,500 miles of driving from Mexico back to Canada, we were amongst a lot of people who were trying to cross our border. On the highway, the sign read 50 minutes for the Peace Arch (Douglas) crossing, as well as 50 for the truck (Pacific) crossing. We chose the truck crossing. There were a lot of vehicles, and the line on the left where cars are waiting was quite long. As we approached, we could see many cars behind us following into the line. We knew it was going to be a long wait, but there was nothing else to do. And then it started – cars behind started trying to cut in. Some try to be coy and pretend they don’t know the rules, while others go directly to the left and pretend they are going

to duty free or into the Nexus lane, and then try to cut in as well, but they don’t fool anyone either. Then there were the really aggressive ones who just try to ram their way in; they are the ones that make the most trouble. After an hour of this, you could tell people were getting pretty testy. We had literally no problem on the road up to this time and were so disappointed that coming back into the country was turning out to be such a bad experience. The person in front of us let his wife take the wheel while he went to the office to complain. A while later, an officer came up and approached his car. We could hear the conversation and couldn’t believe it when we heard the officer in a very brisk and condescending way tell the person he had better not get out of his car again or he would be thrown in jail. Does it seem right that the person who is complaining about a situation which is totally unfair should be admonished, while the people who have no respect or courtesy and think they are above everyone else should be encouraged? There is something wrong with this picture. D. Barros, White Rock

Must be limits to government Editor: So today’s paper (April 12) only had four pages of advertisements from the City of Surrey – excluding required notices on zoning. I guess that counts as some degree of restraint, considering that last week’s paper had six pages. Not that these are unnecessary ads; they cover such core city services as organizing Easter egg hunts, teaching children to embroider and showing people how to garden. As we brace for a 40 per cent increase in property taxes this year, I have to ask: how long will the residents of this city put up with the most spendthrift council and egomanical mayor in the city’s history? What will it take before people demand a government that only does what a city government must do? A decade of 10-15 per cent annual tax increases? When will voters wake up and demand financial responsibility? Ed Beauregard, Surrey

write:

Our apathy is beyond reason Editor: Every two or three years, Statistics Canada has informed us the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. This started about the time that the Trilateral Commission was initiated 40 years ago; an elite group of the rich and powerful who decided that the new world order should consist of the ‘chosen’ filthy rich and the groveling masses. To achieve this end, the politicians have slowly stolen from the poor and middle class and handed it to the rich. It works like this: tax breaks and loopholes are given to the rich and, when the coffers run dry, the politicians cry “cutbacks.” And bit by bit, the two I’s take over – income inequality. I can understand the greed of the political hacks and the rich, but the apathy of the electorate who repeatedly vote for these people amazes me. The glimmer of hope are the young people and their Occupy Wall Street group. While our hospitals overflow, the federal minister of finance is about to push another tax break for the corporations that supply our politicians with their campaign money.

Ron Eves has written to White Rock’s mayor and police chief, citing ICBC statistics that show a drop in tickets.

Interpreting the traffic statistics Editor: Re: Residents reach out over speeders, April 12. Traffic ticket numbers on their own don’t tell the residents much of the story. What were the numbers of accidents and fatalities in each category for South Surrey and White Rock? If they have dropped over the past few years, the message has gotten through and simply issuing more revenue generating tickets is not required. Kevin Edge, Surrey Q White Rock’s “top cop” is quoted: “Of course, in the deployment of our resources, we are always seeking

increased efficiencies and a level of effectiveness that surpasses expectations.” Huh? This is the kind of double-speak and spin doctoring we’re used to hearing from politicians or corporate media-relations people. No wonder the RCMP has such a difficult time with public relations when this kind of response comes forth from someone in Staff Sgt. Lesli Roseberry’s position in response to citizens who bring forth valid concerns. Surely in sleepy little White Rock, the local constabulary are not so overburdened that they cannot get a handle on speeders in the community. Don Campbell, Surrey

Opting out not an option: BC Hydro  from page 1 and if there’s an emergency situation where there is no other way to cut the power other than to pull the meter, it really could be a safety hazard.” Honing, a member of Citizens for Safe Technology, had the meter on her home caged in January, and said she knows “tons” of other people who have done the same. Notices demanding Honing’s analogue meter be left alone, along with a note from her doctor referencing her sensitivity to wireless transmissions, are posted around the barricade. Honing is certain the growing prevalence of wireless transmissions are a factor in her children’s increased incidence of headaches and other health issues. Further south, White Rock resident and fellow CST member Linda Ewart has wrapped her power meter in hardware cloth. “You can see through it to read the meter, so we’re not breaking any laws,” she said. Ewart also has lawn signs posted in front of her house advising BC Hydro it is her legal right to say no to the equipment. But Verschoor said there is no “opt-out” option in the smartmeter program, noting it would be neither affordable nor efficient. “We need the system to function as a whole,” she said. “If there’s holes in the system, it means that we have to add additional infrastructure… run dual systems. “It’s not as simple as a customer saying, ‘I don’t want one.’ There is a very real cost to not having customers participate, and no one customer can bear that cost alone.”

A home on Beachview Avenue has signs posted for BC Hydro. Verschoor said of customers who’ve taken the step to barricade their meters that BC Hydro is aware of, more than 2,200 have released the hold “after we’ve had a chance to talk to them.” To date, more than one million smart meters have been installed across the province; all 1.85 million hydro customers are to have the meters by the end of the year. Verschoor said installers who come across a barricaded meter will leave the property and call the customer to discuss the matter. One option customers with concerns do have is they can arrange to have the new meters moved – at their own cost – to another area of their property. There is legislation to back the

power company in accessing the meters, Verschoor added. “We need to be able to come and replace those meters as necessary, or service them,” she said. “Part of our agreement with customers is we have access to the meter to do that. It’s actually part of our electric tariff.” Asked whether Hydro would forcibly remove obstructions or otherwise punish customers who refuse to comply – whether through fines or loss of power – Verschoor said, “Right now we’re having good success working with customers on an individual basis to address concerns they have with the infrastructure upgrade and we’re going to continue focusing on that.”

perspectives …on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Expanding oil pipeline could have negative effect on Lower Mainland

Spill would be costly to economy, wildlife 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 second instalment of a three-part Black Press series looks at the risks involved.

of an oil tanker, they’re operated at an “arm’s length distance” from the oil companies themselves, said Weyler. The tankers are “owned independently and registered in ports of convenience,” often under numbered companies managed overseas by lawyers. “They can disappear and their only asset is the ship.” In that case, those billions of cleanup costs will have to shouldered by the taxpayers of British Columbia, he said.

Taxpayers not on the hook

sk an environmentalist what they think of the potential for a massive crude oil spill in Burrard Inlet and invariably they bring up the Kalamazoo River near Marshall, Mich. That’s where in July 2010 an Enbridge pipeline ruptured, releasing about 19,500 barrels (3.1 million litres) of oil into the nearby river, making it the largest inland oil spill in the history of the U.S. Midwest. More than 18 months later, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency continues to struggle to clean up the mess. So what does an inland oil spill three thousand kilometres away have in common with what could happen here in Greater Vancouver? Well, the spectre of an oil spill is being raised in light of Kinder Morgan Canada’s proposal to twin its Trans Mountain pipeline that stretches from Edmonton to Burnaby. The company has yet to make a formal application to the National Energy Board, but the project is aimed at exports of bitumen crude oil from the Alberta oil sands to China, on supertankers that could hold as much as one million barrels.

Not so, says Bruce Turnbull of Western Canada Marine Response Corporation (WCMRC), formerly known as Burrard Clean. All such vessels which sail into Canadian waters must have an arrangement with a spill-response organization which, on the west coast, is WCMRC. The tankers are brought into Vancouver harbour by local pilots who know about any hazards that need to be avoided. If there is a spill, and the tanker’s owner walks away, the ship would be seized and WCMRC would tap in to the insurance that tanker companies are required to purchase in advance, Canada’s Ship-source Oil Pollution Fund, Turnbull said. If that insurance runs out, a similar international fund is used. “The taxpayer is not on the hook.” WCMRC, which is primarily funded by four major oil companies (Imperial Oil, Shell Canada, Chevron and Suncor) and pipeline operator Kinder Morgan, responds to an average 20 spills a year, he said. As for how much oil is typically recovered, Turnbull said it’s not 100 per cent. “Recovery is only part of an overall strategy. Protection and mitigation of damage to resources is a priority.”

Wildlife left out

Canadian Press pool file photo

‘Worst crude of all’ The common denominator is bitumen crude, a less refined crude thick as molasses that contains additives to allow it to flow freely enough to travel through pipelines. “Of all the crude oil in the world, bitumen from the tar sands is the worst of all,” said Rex Weyler, co-founder of Tanker Free B.C., a group that wants to see oil tankers banned from B.C.’s coast. When bitumen hits water, it separates into gases, creating a toxic cloud that includes toluene and benzene, known carcinogens, Weyler said. Indeed, in Michigan, a large area near

Workers from Burrard Clean mop up oil from the shoreline at Barnet Marine Park following the 2007 Kinder Morgan pipeline rupture in Burnaby. the spill was evacuated and hundreds of residents complained of headache, nausea and respiratory symptoms consistent with exposure to crude oil, according to a report by Michigan health officials. What doesn’t go into the air sinks to the bottom of the river or ocean and “suffocates all the fundamental biological organisms at the root of the food chain,” Weyler said. Those organisms, which consume dead matter in the water, provide food for the surviving fish, but they won’t survive for long with the food chain disrupted.

The problem is, not all responsible parties choose to respond to oiled wildlife, and there are no laws forcing them to do so, said Coleen Doucette, vice-president of the Oiled Wildlife Society of B.C. “The way policies are written in Canada, wildlife is not part of the environment, no one has to clean up wildlife.” But left out in the wild, not only will oiled birds, otters, seals and other wildlife die, they’ll likely be eaten by predators, continuing to contaminate the environment long after the spill is over, noted Doucette, who is also chair of the animal care  see page 12

As for the cleanup and economic cost of a spill in Burrard Inlet, he noted that estimates for the BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico are in the $50 billion range including the cost of compensating the fishing industry. Based on that, Weyler estimates the cost of a spill here, with potential impact on tourism, fishing and shellfish industries, and the damage to Stanley Park, to be upwards of $40 billion. And that’s if you can find those responsible to pay up, he noted. While BP and Enbridge were the polluters who had to pay for the cleanups, in the case

Track record ‘excellent’ When it comes to economic impact of a major oil spill in Burrard Inlet, the local business community isn’t willing to speculate. Peter Xotta, vice president of planning and operations for Port Metro Vancouver, Canada’s largest and busiest port, said such a spill hasn’t happened here so it doesn’t have a point of reference to speculate on. The port is involved in moving $75 billion worth of goods annually and is responsible for 129,000 jobs across Canada, 80,000 of those in the Lower Mainland, and $10 billion in GDP, Xotta noted. “So, as relates to our overall mandate, obviously our objective is to make sure all of that activity continues and that there isn’t disruption to any one of those supply chains.” The port has been handling tanker traffic for more than 50 years and has some of the most stringent operating practices, he said.

Musica Intima to perform The breathtaking harmonies of Vancouver vocal ensemble Musica Intima will be showcased this Friday, 8 p.m. at First United Church in White Rock. With a reputation as Canada’s most exciting vocal ensemble, Musica Intima has had an influence that is being felt in choirs all across North America. It’s not just that a 12-voice group is more manageable in achieving a tight vocal cohesion – and that the self-directed Musica Intima is rooted in a highly democratic dynamic. There’s also been a conscious effort during the group’s 20-year history, baritone Peter Alexander agreed, to get away from the headsin-books stereotype of choral performance. “We’re always looking for something to add a theatrical element to what we do,” he said. “There are lots of different standing arrangements and lots of interaction between us and the audience.” Although none of its original singers still perform with the group, several are active board members, ensuring a continuity of vision, he said. One of the highlights will be the extended work Birdsong by B.C.’s own Edward Henderson, guitarist of the rock group Chilliwack. Tickets are $30 at the door or $25 in advance at www.tickets.surrey.ca

Whales on the move this month A

David Blevins photo

Humpback whales can be seen in the waters of the Georgia Strait. whales belong. Orcas, humpbacks and minke whales can also be seen in the Strait. Fifteen transient orcas recently caused a stir in Nanaimo, as they cruised in to hunt harbour seals. Even if you miss the big guys, there are many more marine mammals to look out for: Dall’s and harbour porpoises, Pacific white-sided dolphins, two species of sea lions, river otters, even occasional sea otters. We have a wealth of marine life around us. Sightings of whales and dolphins can be submitted to the B.C. cetacean sightings network (www.

wildwhales.org) or to Orca Network (www.orcanetwork.org), which keeps an online log. Shorelines are hubs of activity, too. Migrating shorebirds gather to feed on biofilm and crustaceans in the mud as the tide ebbs. Western sandpipers, tiny birds in large flocks, poke their bills fast and furiously at the mud, slurping up the goop on the surface. They need masses of energy to complete their long migration, which rivals that of the grey whale. Some sandpipers wintered as far south as coastal Peru and Suriname and will fly north to the Yukon River delta, Alaska. Our coastal waters and bays are an essential stopover for migrating wildlife, whether enormous whales or tiny sandpipers. We must protect these species and their habitats to preserve the cycle of life. Please give them space and peace to feed.

pril is migration month and wildlife are on the move. At this time of year, many grey whales are heading to their summer feeding areas off Alaska, part of a 22,000 kilometre round trip from their calving waters in Baja California. Some of these gentle giants move through the Georgia Strait, with six or Anne Murray seven regularly seen spouting off Ocean Park, on the east side of Boundary Bay. This was a good winter for grey whales: a record 1,198 calves were nursed in Baja, Mexico. This oncethreatened species is slowly recovering and the eastern Pacific population is about 20,000. There are only 136 western grey whales, a group that generally lives along the coasts of Russia and China, although they also roam. In January, one was spotted off Vancouver Island, heading south.

T3 RECOVERY MATTRESSES

Ironman Mattresses with Celiant® and Cellitex® have been proven in clinical test to reduce pain, increase oxygen levels, and help balance body temperature. Each of these results can have added benefits, including faster healing, increased performance, better quality sleep and improved overall wellness; all of which can help alleviate the symptoms of arthritis and peripheral vascular disease often associated with diabetes. The key to Celliant® lies in its ability to absorb and store electromagnetic (energy) emissions from the human body and release them where they are reabsorbed into the skin and deep muscle tissue, they act as catalysts for natural, biological processes resulting in enhanced oxygen levels, and more balanced body temperature during sleep, rest or physical activity.

Council Update – Every day should be Earth Day With Earth Day this Sunday, it seems fitting to focus on the environment for this Council Update. Over the past several years, the City of White Rock has worked towards reducing its carbon footprint and empowering residents to go green. In 2009 the City of White Rock adopted a bylaw to regulate the cosmetic use of pesticides within the city. As per this bylaw, all properties in the city are pesticide free and do not use herbicides or pesticides. Part of caring for our lawns and gardens is accepting that each year will bring its own unique conditions along with weeds and insects. When we rely on the cosmetic use of pesticides around our homes and gardens, there can be a significant unintentional impact on human health, animals, plants and the environment. In 2011 the City of White Rock introduced another green initiative, the Green Can program. This food recycling program keeps food out of the landfill, which hurts our environment. As food decomposes without access to oxygen, it releases methane, a dangerous greenhouse gas that is 20 times more powerful at trapping heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide. By composting food and yard trimmings, we not only save our planet from the unnecessary creation of additional greenhouse gases, but we also create a valuable resource, nutrient rich topsoil. Last year, through the Green Can program, White Rock residents made a positive difference for our environment, joining other Lower Mainland communities in composting our food and yard trimmings. This year we will look at expanding the Green Can program beyond single residential dwellings. Not only does the Green Can program benefit the environment, it also benefits our wallets. For example, the City currently pays a tipping fee of $107 per tonne of garbage, while green waste costs $41.58 per tonne. We can reduce those costs even more by composting what we can in our backyards and using the Green Can for meat, bones, dairy and other foods that can’t be easily composted at home. Backyard composters are available to White Rock residents for only $25. To purchase your composter, visit the City’s Operations Yard at 877 Keil Street or call 604.541.2181 for more information.

professor is saying, involves sitting in the first row. You might be the only one in the row, but this strategy will help you hear the professor better and become more engaged with the material. It will also lead to more participation and responses to questions that the professor poses. This will help the material become more relevant and make the note-taking process a breeze. Often, it is a student’s tendency to sit in the back rows that makes the material more disconnected. To keep yourself awake and active during the lectures, sitting in the first row is the best strategy. These strategies are just some of the many approaches that students employ in order to keep themselves connected with the material. As you enter university, you might find other strategies that help you take better notes. The important thing to keep note of is that first year is a time of many new experiences. Often, students’ difficulty to cope with the material may just translate into becoming distracted. Being aware of this will help you approach the note-taking process accordingly.

Retired teachers speak out on volunteerism finished late, all the result of volunteer work. Hastie says his day began at 9:15 a.m. and didn’t return home until 10:45 p.m. “It was all meetings,” he says. McFadden says her day started at 9:15 a.m. and finished at 9 p.m., but she had an afternoon break and the evening meeting was over dinner, so it wasn’t quite as intense as Hastie’s. Both Hastie and McFadden credit their respective spouses, both non-teachers, with being understanding about their time commitments, which can see them devoting as much as seven days a week to unpaid work. McFadden says former teachers have a skill set that makes them particularly suited to volunteerism. They have plenty of experience organizing and motivating groups of people, are used to working co-operatively with colleagues and are comfortable speaking in public, McFadden says. Both McFadden and Hastie note that working teachers are also used to putting in extra hours volunteering as coaches, music and drama instructors, among other things. Hastie says that when he was a science teacher at Earl Marriott Secondary, he never got out the door at the official closing time. “It’s a different kind of busy,” Hastie says of his post-retirement life. Hastie says teachers in other jurisdictions – like the U.S. – are often paid extra to work extra hours as coaches, music instructors and the like, unlike B.C. where it is taken for granted that teachers will perform unpaid after-hours work as a matter of course.

etired South Surrey teachers Helen McFadden and Tom Hastie say they were not surprised by a study that indicates people in their profession devote an average of 31 hours a month to unpaid volunteer work after they finish working. Inviting Peace Arch News to examine the study last week, both retirees express sympathy and support for their working colleagues in the B.C. Teachers Federation, currently involved in a labour dispute, who recently began a work-to-rule campaign that halts unpaid after❝It’s their joy.

The average hours of volunteering by retired teachers are more than double that reported in a 2009 survey on volunteer work by all Canadians, the BCRTA said. McFadden – as outgoing president of the Surrey Retired Teachers Association, current president of the White Rock Kiwanis Club and volunteer co-ordinator at the B.C. Summer Games being held in Surrey this year – says her days can be long, but nothing like the after-hours contributions teachers routinely make on the job. “A teacher’s life is so hectic that I don’t think you could be busier,” McFadden says over coffee with Hastie in what used to be

New routes on hold include rapid buses on Port Mann, King George

TransLink freezes upgrades hold until we have an understanding of how we are going to pay for those improvements,” Jarvis said, adding it is not sufficient to assume a provincial audit will turn up enough efficiencies to finance the upgrades. Two projects will still proceed. Construction of the Evergreen Line to Coquitlam will continue because TransLink’s share of that project is fully funded by the two cent per-litre gas-tax increase that took effect April 1. And a new White Rock-Langley bus route will still be launched on schedule next week. The property-tax increase, equivalent to an extra $23 per average home in 2013 and 2014, would have raised an extra $30 million in those years. Mayors last week voted to withdraw the tax hike after the provincial government refused to

TransLink has slammed the brakes on its transit expansion plan after Metro Vancouver mayors voted to withdraw their commitment to raise property taxes over the next two years in the absence of a new transportation funding source. The decision announced by TransLink CEO Ian Jarvis Tuesday freezes plans for Highway 1 express buses over the new Port Mann Bridge in dedicated lanes starting this December, linking Langley, Surrey and Lougheed Centre in Burnaby. Also on hold is a new King George Boulevard B-Line express bus route in Surrey, general bus service increases across the region and upgrades to some Expo Line SkyTrain stations. “We’re going to put those on

allow a vehicle levy for Translink, or any other new source cities prefer over property tax. Three South of Fraser mayors opposed the motion because they didn’t want to lose the promised expansion in their area. Jarvis said planned upgrades at Metrotown, Surrey Central and Lonsdale Quay stations are on hold, but staff will try to deliver the most urgent station upgrade at Main Street. He also said fare gates will not be in place at the Metrotown and Main Street SkyTrain stations when the new system of turnstiles and Compass smart cards is launched next year. For SeaBus, a plan for more frequent service on evenings and weekends is also shelved for now. Design work toward a rebuild of the Pattullo Bridge is unaffected.

B.C.’s labour minister is defending changes to the workplace regulation that required employers to provide a secure barrier for nightshift employers who work alone. Changes took effect Sunday that allow another option for operators of gas stations, convenience stores and other 24-hour businesses. Rather than have a security barrier or more than one employee present, the regulation allows employers to put in video surveillance and a call button. The original regulation is known as Grant’s law, after gas station employee Grant De Patie, who was run over and killed in 2005 when he tried to stop a driver from leaving without paying for gas. Labour Minister Margaret MacDiarmid said Monday that the main provision of Grant’s law is mandatory pre-payment for gasoline, and that remains. “With a small familyrun business that may be open late at night, it’s often somebody from the family who is working there,� she said. “If they’re forced to put in a barrier that may cost upward of $50,000 or more, the business is going to fold. So they were listened to, and those other safety measures will be taken.�

Payton Rector teams with veteran musician Doug Johnson on BC Summer Games’ song

‘Dream’ project for young singer Alex Browne

D

Staff Reporter

oug Johnson should have every right to be jaded about the music business. As keyboardist of the Canadian band Loverboy, the South Surrey resident has pretty much seen it all, sharing in the international success of such hits as Working For The Weekend, Turn Me Loose and The Kid Is Hot Tonight, and such accolades as multiple Juno Award wins and induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame. But he’s far from jaded about the talent of Payton Rector, the young singer who will introduce his song, Because We Dream – the official Surrey 2012 BC Summer Games theme song – tonight at the games’ torchlighting ceremony at Bear Creek Park. “She nailed it,” he said of Rector’s contribution to the project. When he and his collaborator on lyrics, Surrey-based drummer Don Wells, were looking for a young local artist to record the song and perform it live at the games’ opening, the requirements were both simple and daunting, Johnson recalled. “People said ‘let’s get somebody from our city who can step up to the plate and deliver a killer vocal,’” he said. But one name kept coming up: Payton Rector. Though still only 14, she’s won a slew of talent contest titles – including the BC Junior Talent Search – but, more importantly, has already garnered industry attention in pop, blues and country circles for powerful, performances, self-possessed stage presence and eminently marketable looks. “I took a look at her YouTube videos and was really impressed,” Johnson said. “I couldn’t believe how mature a performer she was. I only had one question – can she really sing like that?” Any doubts were soon dispelled when she came into his studio after having studied MP3s of demo vocals and background instrumental tracks he’d arranged, and they’d made sure

Lion’s roar reduced to a whisper

T

here’s something seriously wrong when a piece celebrated as a showcase for theatrical fireworks and witty oneliners is played as angst-ridden, slice-of-life drama. This, judging by the April 11 opening-night performance, is a fate that has befallen the White Rock Players Club’s Alex Browne production of The Lion In Winter (running to April 28 at Coast Capital Playhouse). As a proven stage vehicle, with some fine actors in leading roles – and a veteran director at the helm – the club’s 2012 Theatre B.C. entry seems a good bet. But whether by accident or design, over-thinking or under-thinking, director Dale Kelly appears to have almost completely misread James Goldman’s 1966 script. The playwright’s self-described ‘Comedy in Two Acts’ is a cheekily impertinent retelling of history, a 12th century battle of wits and wills to determine the royal succession waged between King Henry II, his estranged wife Eleanor of Aquitaine – and three distinctly unlovable sons – at a Christmas court at Chinon. Rescued from obscurity as a Broadway also-ran by a classic film version with Katherine Hepburn and Peter O’Toole, The Lion In Winter has long been famed as an exercise in snapcrackle-pop verbal sparring, and all the joys of guile and shifting loyalties. Practically all such potential is missed in this version, which lacks pace, timing, light and shade, and flattens almost every vestige of humour with the blunt force  see page 32

Miscasting hurts the play  from page 31 of a battleaxe connecting with a breastplate. Kelly, sadly, seems determined to cast the audience as eavesdroppers at a private, and mostly tedious, family ritual. His decision to underplay dulls every theatrical effect implicit in the script, and in some scenes the low-key acting of Ben Odberg (Henry) and Glen Surzyshyn (scheming son Geoffrey) is so intimate as to be virtually inaudible. The latter, with long tendrils of hair brushed down into his eyes and over his face, seems to be trying his best to be invisible, too. There’s not much to like about the sons, but we should at least be able to enjoy the characters’ flaws: the deviousness of Geoffrey, the musclebound bone-headedness of Richard the Lionheart (Bryce Mills) or the whiny uselessness of Prince John (Keaton Mazurek). Unfortunately, their playing remains mostly on one level, denying us much chance to delight in the sheer awfulness of the characters. This odd reluctance to enlist the sympathies of the audience starts early. The first scene, a conversation between Henry and his much younger mistress, Alais Capet (Elise Maloway) – which should have given us some piquant sense of her testing his affections, as well as establishing the premise of family intrigue – is flatly delivered, and Henry, overall, comes across less wily than weary. Maloway’s performance is always sincere, and well-projected; while Lori Tych, a first-class actor, has some fine moments as the still razor sharp, still beautiful Eleanor. But though she does everything but

stand on her head to bring some life to the play, she’s offered precious little in return, and by the time the show – and her personal war with Henry – develops some momentum in the second act, it’s far too late for the audience to care. Kelly has done even more damage to the play with a brutal piece of miscasting. David Quast (as Philip II, King of France) may be a fine and capable actor under other circumstances, but there is no way on God’s green earth he can convince anyone he’s an 18-year-old boy – which means most of Philip’s scenes with Henry and Richard, as written, don’t make any sense. Before letters of outrage come pouring in, I know only too well the sacrifice and hard work that volunteer actors, directors and crew contribute to community theatre. I’ve been there myself – for the Players Club and other groups – and my hat is, automatically, off to those who have the guts and gumption to put themselves forward and enrich our lives with live theatre. That said, we must remember that adjudicated Theatre B.C. zone festivals exist not merely to reward participation, but to celebrate excellence in the field. Also deserving of consideration are those who are asked to contribute $15-$17 per ticket for each show. In the case of the Players Club’s last production, Drinking Alone, they got their money’s worth. On the strength of the opening night performance of The Lion In Winter, it’s hard to argue the expense is justified, and the desultory applause from the majority of the audience at the end would seem to bear this out.

White Rock Tritons Adam Shumka and Alex Webb to play ball in college next season

Pair of pitchers ink scholarship deals Nick Greenizan

T

Sports Reporter

he BC Premier Baseball League season is only a few weeks old, but already a pair of White Rock Tritons have their futures on the diamond sorted out. Earlier this month, Adam Shumka and Alex Webb – both pitchers – each signed agreements to play college baseball next season, Shumka with Corban College, an NAIA school in Salem, Ore., and Webb with the University of B.C. Thunderbirds. It also means both Tritons’ hurlers, who’ve been teammates from their Little League days and up through the Junior Tritons and Tritons’ systems, will be Adam Shumka on opposite sides of the field next year, as UBC also plays in the NAIA, although in a different conference than the Corban Warriors. And though they’ll be rivals next spring, Shumka, insists there’s been no trash talk – at least not so far. Alex Webb “No, nothing like that pitchers yet. We’re still teammates and good buddies for now, but we’ll see if that changes next season,” he laughed. Shumka, a White Rock native and Grade 12 student at Pacific Academy, signed his letter of intent on Easter weekend but said he had been weighing offers from a few American schools. He ultimately decided on Corban College because of its coaching staff and proximity to home. “I just really like the coaching staff they have there, and I also thought that Oregon would be a pretty cool place to go to school,” he said Monday. “It’s far enough away that it’s still exciting and feels like I’m going away for school, but close enough that I’m still close to home, and my family can see me play.

White Rock Tritons’ Alex Webb, shown sliding during a 2010 fall league game, will take his talents to UBC next baseball season. “It’s also a good league, and the conference has a lot of good teams in it.” With the Tritons having such a busy schedule this week – they played three times, all on the road, from Sunday to Tuesday – Webb, a Semiahmoo Secondary student, could not be reached, but Tritons’ coach Russ Smithson, who has coached both Webb and Shumka the last three years, dating back to the Junior Tritons, was proud of both his pitching proteges. “I think it’s great, both guys have put in a

lot of hard work over the years,” Smithson said. “I’ve had them both for a while now, and that’s the cool thing – as a coach, I get to see them have this success.” He was confident both would excel at the college level, and said both are what scouts often refer to as “high-ceiling players” – prospects who still have a lot of room to grow. “They both have good velocity (on their pitches). Alex throws in the high 80s already, and Adam is in the mid-80s,”

Smithson said. “And I think they were probably signed as much for their potential as anything – they can both be very good players.” Though the Tritons have got off to a slow start this season, Shumka has been the team’s most reliable pitcher. He’s 1-1, and in 13 innings has 11 strikeouts, just five walks and an earned-run average of just 1.08, which is among the best marks in the PBL among starting pitchers.  see page 40

Mens’ rugby side set for home game against Velox Valhallians Saturday

Sharks stay atop standings despite loss to Seattle Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The Bayside Sharks lost their penultimate game of the men’s first division rugby season Saturday in Seattle, but by picking up bonus points, still did enough to stay atop the standings. The Sharks lost 31-24 to Seattle – whom the Peninsula squad beat at South Surrey Athletic Park earlier in the season – but picked up two points, one for losing within seven points and another for scoring at least four tries. Those two points proved key, as they keep the Sharks tied for first with the Vancouver

Rowing Club, with one game left to a tiebreaker at all, instead preferring his team put itself into as good on the schedule. And though the Rowers have a position as possible against the Velox Valhallians this one more win than the Sharks, it’s Bayside that ❝We were one or Saturday at South Surholds the tiebreaker, as two plays away rey Athletic Park. “It’s not the worst they have a better points from tying the spot to be in, having for/against ratio than the Rowers in the teams’ two game, and maybe the tiebreaker, but we head-to-head matchups; even winning it.❞ still need to go into this weekend’s game and in the first game, VanPat Kearney get five points against couver won by two, but Sharks coach Bayside won by 12 in the Velox,” he said. “I think rematch, giving them a we have a good chance 10-point advantage. to finish first (and get a first-round That said, Sharks coach Pat Kear- playoff bye), but we have to win. It ney would rather it not come down should be a pretty good weekend

of rugby.” At the very least, Kearney hopes his team will come out with a better effort than the one they put forth last Saturday in the Emerald City – a game in which Seattle jumped out to a 15-0 lead early and led 20-5 by halftime. “That was a tough one, man,” Kearney said, adding that his squad was playing without a handful of regulars due to other commitments, or trouble crossing the border. “Our Fijian guys couldn’t cross – they don’t have the right paperwork, so we were definitely a little thin, sure. But that’s not an excuse

– those other guys just wanted it more than we did, and they jumped on us a little bit early.” Still, Kearney was impressed with how his team battled back, outscoring Seattle 19-11 in the second half. “We played hard, so even though you’re upset to lose, it’s not that bad. We were one or two plays away from tying the game, and maybe even winning it,” he said. “It ended OK, but we’ve still got some things we have to work on.” Zach Thorpe, Jesse Train, Cody Rockson and Levi Hansen scored tries for the Sharks, while Pete Clifford added two conversions.

sports Cloverdale curlers beat Ontario

Tardi rink wins bronze A Cloverdale curling team did not return home empty-handed from their trip back east. Representing B.C. at the Optimist International U18 curling championships at the Dixie Curling Club in Mississauga, Ont. from April 4-8, the juvenile men’s curling team upset pretournament favourite Team Ontario in the bronze medal match. Team B.C. scored one point in the eighth and final end to win 6-5. The B.C. rink – which curls out of the Langley Curling Club and is made up of Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary’s Tyler Tardi and Jordan Tardi, as well as Nicholas Meister and Zachary Umbach plus coach Paul Tardi — went 4-1 in the round robin but came up one point short in their semifinal

match against Team Quebec, losing 4-3. Team B.C.’s lone round-robin loss came in the first draw when they fell 5-2 to Team Manitoba, the eventual gold medal winners. It’s been a good year thus far for the Tardi rink. Back in February, the young curling team struck gold at the BC Winter Games in Vernon, defeating a Vancouver IslandCentral Coast rink skipped by Mill Bay’s Paul Henderson 7-3 in the championship game. That victory in Vernon qualified the Tardi rink for the Optimist International bonspiel, which featured top under18 teams from seven provinces, as well a rink from Japan, and one each from Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Washington.

Shumka focused on making playoffs behind them, Shumka was looking forward to focusing solely on his last season with the Tritons, in which he’s hoping to lead them to the playoffs for the first time in three seasons. Last year, with the final playoff spot on the line, Shumka and his mates lost a one-game showdown to the Okanagan Athletics, and he admits he’d like to make amends for the loss. “The year before that, with the Junior Tritons, we lost a play-in game, too, so it’d be really nice to

have a good season and not have to worry about squeezing into (the post-season),” he said. “I’ve played with some of these guys since Little League, and next year, it’s going to be a little weird not knowing the guy standing beside me at practice, but it’ll be a good challenge and I’m looking forward to it. “But since this is our last year together here, it’s nice that we can just go out there and play, and hopefully make it to the final four (in playoffs).”

Homebuyers looking for sustainable developments

Cressey aims to reduce eco footprint With the world celebrating Earth Day on April 22, now is a great time to be thinking about eco-friendly living. Hani Lammam, vice-president of development and acquisitions for Cressey Development Group, says the company always keeps it in mind. One of the best ways to ensure an eco-friendly design is to build projects that will stand the test of time, Lammam says. “We put up buildings that will be around for 100 years,” he says, adding that reducing your environmental footprint is one of the best things a homeowner can do. He says that a multi-family development is more

sustainable than a single-family home, as it allows resources to be shared. One of the biggest energy-suckers in a home is the heating and cooling system, so Cressey always devotes time to making it energy-efficient. “We avoid electrical baseboard heating,” Lammam says. “We use heat pumps instead, because they can be shared within the building.” They also try to foster urban agriculture with large outdoor spaces so homeowners can grow their own food. “The Cressey kitchen has become a standard in our industry,” Lammam says. “But it’s what’s used in the kitchen that is important.”

market,” says Castro. Woodbridge chose not to include amenities such as a fitness facility and a pool, instead preferring to keep maintenance fees low. They range from

$125.94 to $165.72 per month. Homes start at $279,900. For more information, check out www. liveatlarue.com or call 604-575-2263 or Castro at 778-885-5790.

‘A different style of home’

Finding a home at Woodbridge’s La Rue by Kerry Vital

Surrey’s Clayton Heights neighbourhood is welcoming Woodbridge Homes to the block with La Rue. Truly “the street you want to live on,” La Rue features a collection of 26 twobedroom and flex space, three- and four-bedroom townhomes in its first phase. “The neighbourhood is very familyoriented,” says sales manager Andrea Castro, adding that she herself lives in the area with her children.

This is a fantastic way to get into the market,” says sales manager Andrea Castro.

The homes are spacious and immediately inviting, with their French textured stucco details on the exterior and French Country-inspired landscaping. Architect Robert Cicozzi designed the homes with a Georgian influence in mind, and elegant wrought-iron fences surround the private yards that come standard with every home. Window boxes filled with colourful flowers just add to the beauty of the development. There is a private deck on every home, and the tandem garages or long driveways give you plenty of space to leave your vehicles behind while you take advantage of the

walkability of the neighbourhood. Inside, your home will be no less amazing. The kitchens are fantastic, with ceramic tile backsplashes, Victorian-profile cabinets with crown mouldings and oil-rubbed bronze hardware, and stone countertops. Chic stainless-steel appliances and an undermount sink are perfect for your every culinary need, while the pot lighting is an elegant touch. The lovely finishes extend into the ensuite bathrooms, which also feature stone countertops. An oversized shower with a semi-frameless glass door or a separate tub and shower combination are odes to luxury, while the decorative vanity lights and large mirrors will put everyone in the most flattering light. Most homes feature his-and-hers sinks, so you’ll no longer be fighting for counter space in the morning. Nine-foot ceilings on the main level demonstrate the easy sense of space that is inherent in each home, while the wood laminate flooring in the main living areas and trackless nylon carpet on the stairs and in the bedrooms and upper level hallways are touches that almost seem like the cherry on the top of the perfect home sundae. One of the best parts of the project is the neighbourhood, Castro says. Impossibly close to shopping, restaurants and entertainment, La Rue is also near both elementary and secondary schools, and will include a 1,600-square-foot playground and parks on almost every corner. “This is a fantastic way to get into the

Woodbridge Homes’ La Rue is already garnering buzz in Clayton Heights. With its Georgian-inspired architecture, above, the townhomes are a great addition to the neighbourhood. The bathrooms feature oversized showers, top, while the laminate flooring in the living areas are complemented by the Victorian-profile cabinets and oil-rubbed bronze hardware in the kitchens, above middle.

Do you remember the old riddle, “what do you call the person who graduated dead last in his/her medical school class?” Answer: DOCTOR! Well, the same is true for real estate agents. Just because someone passed a real estate licensing examination doesn’t mean they are qualified to handle your needs. All agents are not the same. Here are a few things you should look for in a qualified agent. First, determine if he/she specializes either in your area or type of home. Second, ask them specifically how they helped clients overcome specific problems they encountered in a past transaction. Third, ask them specifically what they will do for you if they represent you. They should have a step-by-step plan of action. Fourth, ask them how long they’ve practiced real estate, and how many transactions they have under their belt. Fifth, ask them about their marketing skills. See, most agents are trained to handle transactions and understand the law, but few are trained in effective marketing. A poor marketer will cost you thousands of dollars in wasted time and energy. And finally, ask them for a reference list of past clients they’ve helped. Call those references and ask questions about how they handled the transaction.

In her final weeks, our treasured Mom knew that Dad and Ron would be there to meet her and hold her in her change of worlds. Mom was always ready to share her hugs, her smiles, a helping hand, and her unconditional love and support. Her sense of humor was with her to the end.

She will be sadly missed, both for her role as a most precious, wonderful mother and grandmother, and for being the best friend that anyone could possibly have.

“When joining Hospice in 2005, I wondered... just what would I be able to contribute? I now appreciate the need in our community and the difference Hospice staff and volunteers make in the lives of those we walk alongside during their most difficult times. Although the Hospice-voice resonates quietly amongst those we serve Dan Bouillet – the impact on the community over the last 3+ decades has been huge. It would be hard to imagine a community without a Hospice Society HELP US woven into it.” CELEBRATE 30 YEARS OF CARING!
