Hockey tragedy leaves Richard Morrison unable to walk again

Friends rally for paralyzed man’s family Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Richard Morrison and family.

A White Rock man known for his positive outlook and enthusiasm for hockey suffered devastating injuries Saturday in what friends are describing as “a freak accident.” Richard Morrison, 47, has been on life support at Vancouver General Hospital since breaking his neck playing drop-in hockey April 21 at Burnaby 8 Rinks.

“As far as I know, he was going in for a goal and then he tripped over a goalie pad and went headfirst into the boards behind the net,” Morrison’s wife, Sheila, said Wednesday. “He went headfirst and he just compressed his spine, and he broke his neck in two places.” As of Wednesday, Morrison remained on a respirator, unable to breathe on his own. While that is expected to improve, the damage to his vertebrae is such that the father of

two will never walk again. Word of the tragedy has spread quickly since Saturday, as have efforts to help. Brent Silzer, a local real estate agent who has known Morrison for about 20 years and was best man at his wedding in 2005, said more than $6,000 was raised in just two days this week, and donations continue to pour in for the family.  see page A4

Impassioned presentation by controversial canine advocate spurs council

Surrey to ban tethering of dogs Kevin Diakiw Black Press

A White Rock woman who is currently before the courts for allegedly stealing dogs addressed Surrey council Monday afternoon, asking for a ban on the chaining and tethering of canines. The presentation by Janet Olson, representing the Campaign to Ban the Confinement of Resident Dogs, was accompanied by disturbing images of dogs in distress. “In 2008, a St. Bernard who became hopelessly entangled in her tether tried to chew off her own leg in an attempt to free herself,” Olson told council.

“Many chained dogs have hung agreement with what you are prothemselves as they’ve jumped over posing,” said Mayor Dianne Watts, their doghouses and fences, such as adding she was behind the group these dogs did.

The City of White Rock is looking for a new, full-time director of engineering and municipal operations. But applicants would be wise not to expect the job’s remuneration to be anywhere near what it has been over the past two years. “It’d be about half what it is now, probably in the $130,000 range, something in that order,” Mayor Wayne Baldwin said this week. Wayne Baldwin The position is currently held by Rob Thompson, who was hired on a two-year contract that expires June 29. Baldwin told Peace Arch News Tuesday that while Thompson has done “good service” for White Rock, the end Rob Thompson of his contract is an opportunity for the city to bring someone on board who is both qualified for the job’s requirements and paid appropriately. Thompson declined to comment. The mayor confirmed the quest is part of efforts to get the city’s finances in order.  see page A4

SPIN THE WHEEL

Oil flows through Surrey

TO SAVE

Twinned pipeline hits home T ...and frankly a y

From there, it goes down the hill towards the Port Mann. It crosses beneath the Fraser River into Coquitlam, to the west of the new Port Mann Bridge. In both Fraser Heights and the older Riverdale neighbourhood, near 148 Street and 108 Avenue, the pipeline is located very close to residential properties. In fact, the former employee told me there is a pipeline valve or tank in one Surrey homeowner’s front yard. Ian Anderson, president of Kinder Morgan Canada, said when the twinning project was announced that the new pipeline may have to use a different route to avoid going through areas that have urbanized since the first pipeline was built. Almost certainly, the twinned pipeline will still pass through Surrey. It is important that the company begin the process of informing the public of its plans, and in particular, those whose homes and businesses are adjacent to the pipeline. People need to have up-to-date and accurate information about this project, and how it will impact them. At the same time, plenty of information about the overall impact of the project on the economy, and the environment, is also needed. The final decision needs to be made based on facts, not fear, but the project needs to be a net benefit to both B.C. and Canada. Frank Bucholtz writes Thursdays for the Peace Arch News.

news Business group recruits for temporary position in White Rock

Need for marketing co-ordinator ‘a good sign’ for BIA Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

The White Rock Business Improvement Association will soon have a marketing co-ordinator, and the fact one is needed is a good sign, officials say. “That’s how I interpret it, that we’re that busy… we need the extra support in-house to make us even more successful,” said Sherri Wilson Morissette, executive director of the BIA. Wilson Morissette confirmed last week that the process of interviewing

applicants for a six- to seven-month position “to see us through summer and our busy events season” is underway. The hope is to have the individual in place in the next couple of weeks. Approved by BIA members at the organization’s general meeting in January, the marketing co-ordinator’s position is not a new concept, Wilson Morissette noted. A student was in the role when Wilson Morissette took on the position of executive director in May 2011. Prior to that, former executive director Russ

Davies had the help of Cyndie Richards, before Richards herself became executive director. “It’s something that we have had in the past… in various different forms,” Wilson Morissette said. With efforts ramping up to increase the BIA’s presence – through activities, promotions and working more closely with merchants – the extra help will go a long way, Wilson Morissette said. The marketing co-ordinator will fill two roles, that of events organizer and

social-media specialist. Responsibilities are to include working on existing and new events, as well as developing new promotions. The position is short-term because that is what the budget allowed. “We want to have a great person and have the best-skilled person to fill that position and budget restraints prevent us from doing a full year,” she said. Whether there will be another contract for the position offered next year will be up to BIA members, she said.

Parents mark anniversary of son’s death

Still no arrests one year later Kevin Diakiw Black Press

A year ago, Devon Allaire-Bell was stabbed to death at Frank Hurt Secondary School. While police have several leads and persons of interest, no arrests have yet been made. Police are asking anyone with “specific or intimate” knowledge of the crime to call police. It was April 24, 2011, when the 19 year old and his friend Jack Neilson were playing soccer and having a few beers at the 138 Street and 77 Avenue school. They were approached by five Indo-Canadian males, and an argument broke out. Knives were drawn and Neilson and AllaireBell were stabbed. Allaire-Bell died from his wounds, while Neilson suffered serious injuries, but has recovered. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) says since the release of a video, they’ve had a flood of tips, and subsequently have persons of interest they have identified.

Parents Cynthia Allaire-Bell and her husband Wayne Bell. “Through the duration of the past year we know there are people who have talked about this homicide,” IHIT Sgt. Jennifer Pound wrote in a release. “We need those people, who have specific and intimate details about this killing, to come forward to police.” The family marked the one-year anniversary with a vigil Wednesday evening at Frank Hurt Secondary School.

Baldwin noted that despite Thompson’s job title, he is not an engineer.

news Bad timing to discuss humane culling of wildlife

Cool reception for trapper Kevin Diakiw Black Press

His timing couldn’t have been much worse. Tim Killey, a self-styled hobby trapper, appeared before Surrey council this week to urge them to stop a ban on leg-hold traps. His pitch Monday came immediately after another group’s plea to ban the chaining of dogs, a presentation that included heartwrenching pictures of dogs hanged to death by their own tethers. It was an emotionally rattled council that braced itself to hear Killey’s argument that he can kill animals humanely. Killey was there because coun-

cil is planning to ban leg-hold traps at the request of a group called Fur Bearer Defenders. He asserted that the traps used nowadays allow for a completely humane kill. Mayor Dianne Watts told Killey the city would rather not kill any animal, preferring instead to relocate them. Killey noted that approach is laudable but overused. He said often people will trap raccoons, take them to a green space, which unbeknownst to them, is already fully populated with raccoons. The animal will then simply head to another area and become

someone else’s problem. Killey described himself as a hobby trapper, making just enough from sales of skins to pay for the gasoline in his truck. To underline his point about trap effectiveness, Killey approached council with traps, loaded them and set them off. Killey even asked council for a volunteer to put their hand in a leg-hold trap, and when they declined, he set it off on his own hand to show how painless it is. The next day, Watts said she appreciated Killey’s presentation, but that the city will be forging ahead with a ban on the leg-hold traps as planned.

Council’s response surprises Olson  from page A1 Outside of the campaign, Olson, founder of A Better Life Dog Rescue, is fighting more than three dozen charges related to incidents dating back as far as October 2006.

editorial

B.C. teachers roll dice with public support .C. teachers are taking a big gamble by pulling out of sports and other extracurricular activities. While the intended target of their campaign is the provincial government — which they want to withdraw Bill 22, the document enforcing mediation and new class size and composition rules — what teachers are more likely to experience is strained relationships and a drop in public support. Teachers, who have enjoyed strong parent support in their last two contract disputes, say they must take this action because the legal right to strike has been taken away from them. But few students and parents in the weeks ahead will be able to equate the loss or complication of planned school activities with larger issues the teachers seek to address. If they wish to keep the public on their side, B.C. teachers will need a deft communications strategy to explain why collective bargaining principles are more important than an end-ofyear field trip or tournament — or grad. In School District 43, where class sizes are already kept to within acceptable standards and $3.1 million will be spent supporting vulnerable students, the teachers’ message may be even more muted. What’s more, many, if not all, of these events will go ahead anyway, especially in the wealthier neighbourhoods, leaving teachers with less clout and fewer relationships on which to build strong bonds. With parents and other members of the community picking up the slack, teachers will be left out of the loop and out of the action; their students will go on with their lives, winning ribbons and scholarships and other acknowledgements without the teachers who helped them earn these achievements. And for those students who struggle, there will be another reason to disengage when their their favourite coach, choir or other sponsoring teacher stops giving their free time for political reasons or because they fear reprisals from their co-workers. All this heartache would be worth it if there was some tangible pay-off in the end. But the public education system has never been perfect and teachers will be hard-pressed to explain how punishing kids is punishing the government.

Fraser River at one or more locations, he says. Port Mann was the best option, but this is a second chance to create a link that could serve trains heading to the U.S. border, and out toward the valley. “Why not build a bridge that’s multimodal... from day one,” he says. “And replace two bridges that serve rail and vehicles rather poorly.” On first blush, Perl’s pitch is tough to swallow. Two lanes for cars would be a huge improvement for New Westminster, trimming several thousand commuters from our traffic-choked town. But boosting rail traffic would send some folks at Quayside into fits. Perl says many cities in Europe and Asia have more rail than we do, and it’s less obtrusive. So is TransLink being myopic with its six-lane span that ignores the rail bridge? Are they projecting a future where people’s commuting habits don’t change or evolve? Perl thinks the region needs Ottawa, the B.C. government and TransLink to all to work together to find a solution that embraces the “post-carbon” future that’s coming. Sadly, he says, we’re more likely to get more of the same. Case in point is the 10-lane Port Mann, designed for a future based upon $50-a-barrel oil. “Efficiency means not building 10-lane bridges on spec, and saying well, people south of the Fraser like to drive,” he concludes. “Maybe at $50 a barrel that’s great, but at $150 it ain’t going to happen, and at $250 you’d be able to play street hockey on that bridge during rush hour.” So is Perl a dreamer, or the only guy in the room talking sense?

letters Peace Arch News

Most will pay Transparency their fare share not that costly Editor: Re: Online question, April 19-25, www.peacearchnews.com I just responded to your question of the week: “Should bus service be reduced across the Lower Mainland to save money?” I voted no because Surrey is growing at such an incredible rate, it doesn’t make any sense. I know it takes a lot of money to do it. When they say the Lower Mainland, south of the Fraser is still far behind the rest of the pack. I am retired, but for 34 years I was unable to use transit, as some of my shifts would not allow it and – if I could – a 20-minute drive would take over an hour. As far as fare evaders go, put the tickets into the hands of a collection agency and those who do work will pay, as I am sure their credit rating is far more important than the cost of a free ride. Jim Kerr, Surrey

Editor: Re: As costly as the gun registry, April 17 letters. Local union leader Phil Halley wildly suggests my private member’s bill requiring financial transparency from unions will cost “perhaps billions” of taxpayers’ dollars in ongoing costs, like the gun registry once did. Halley’s rhetoric is misinformed. Costs to unions and to the federal government will in fact be quite minimal. There are no requirements for unions to pay for an audit – they will simply file this data, just as you and I file our own tax return. It is important to remember that union bookkeepers already collect the financials identified in my bill, and it is simply a matter of using

computer software to compile and file these figures. Upon receiving the data, the government simply and inexpensively posts it on a website, just as the financials for Canadian charities have been published for the last 35 years. Transparency hasn’t cost the government or charities ‘billions’ and it won’t cost unions much either. However, the modest cost that is incurred will be far outweighed by the benefits of transparency as Canadian taxpayers see how the roughly half-billion dollars they provide to support the work of unions annually are spent. That is probably why, according to a recent Nanos poll, 83 per cent of Canadians agree with requiring union financial disclosure. My website – www.C377.ca – has more information on the benefits of union financial disclosure. MP Russ Hiebert, South SurreyWhite Rock-Cloverdale

More like bumper cars Editor: I think in this town a ‘Bad driver’s licence’ is now a requirement. Sitting at the intersection of Russell and George for an hour, I saw: seniors ‘gunning it’ to 40-60 m.p.h. for a half-block stretch; cars swerving into oncoming traffic to avoid a parallel parker; kitty-corner stops going both ways. I could cite more offences, but I don’t want to be redundant. They should medicate everybody behind a wheel with tranks. Then at least they’ll be driving into each other at 10 m.p.h. For pedestrians, it’s worse. Next time you see me uptown, I’ll be wearing a suit of armour. Show some pride! Jay Heakes, Surrey

quote of note

`

As most of us can’t get a handle on the science of this issue, it might be well to adopt a cautionary attitude rather than blind acceptance of BC Hydro’s theory.a Mary Garner

Better to be safe than sorry Editor: Re: Residents aim to take back the power, April 19. As the debate about smart meters continues, I see a point of view not yet addressed; that of multiple meters in apartment/condo blocks. Every multiple housing block has an electrical room on the ground floor which contains a meter for each suite. Each one gives out pulses that BC Hydro tells us are benign. As most of us can’t get a handle on the science of this issue, it might be well to adopt a cautionary attitude rather than blind acceptance of BC Hydro’s theory. My caution warns me that I have 15 meters right beneath my bedroom floor emitting radioactive pulses regularly. Neither walls, floors, ceilings or anything else will lessen the barrage 24 hours a day. The pulses have effect across 300 feet, therefore anyone within that range will be in their path, as well as the path of pulses from buildings across the street, behind and beside you. You could be receiving a dose 200 times the strength of Hydro quotes for one meter if there are 50 suites in four adjacent buildings. This, in addition to all the Wi-Fi gadgets, phones, cell towers, etc. The smart meters were imposed upon citizens without permission or consultation. There are cities in Europe, Canada and the U.S. where they have become optional or are banned. Smart meters are capable of interacting “with any future technology,” which I read to mean that if any government department wants to collect data that people want to remain private, there’ll be nothing we can do.

Environmentalists have a far more difficult time than corporations getting their messages heard, say letter writers.

Environmental questions pervade Editor: Re: Environmentalism for dummies, April 17. Columnist Tom Fletcher’s opinions often get under my skin, but I thought I had sea lice when I read his portrayal of all environmentalists as dupes or empirebuilding opportunists. Fletcher would be better informed if he met most of the environmentalists to which he refers. He would see that their posh offices are often kitchen tables or basements, and their primary interest in money is to buy food, pay the rent and support their cause. If Fletcher wants to question the “large U.S. foundations that fund most of B.C.’s enviro-scare industry” – which is untrue – he also needs to question the far greater source of for-profit foreign influence used to minimize or cover up real environmental threats. U.S. corporations spend more on lobbying our government and misleading the Canadian public than Canadian environmental organizations could ever hope for. In spite of their pledges to look after the public good, corporations don’t have charitable status. Yet they receive more Canadian taxpayer dollars in new infrastructure and tax breaks than U.S. foundations donate to Canadian charities. Why are foreign businesses allowed to be so political but not Canadian non-profits in the business of serving loftier goals than a profit motive? In any case, how can anyone possibly separate politics from environmental issues, or assign them to a specific country? Can Fletcher answer those questions and still promote a propaganda myth that environmental organizations employ deception to create their raison d’être? Larry Colero, White Rock

Q On April 17, you published a column by Tom Fletcher of Black Press. In order to keep my comments under 10,000 words, I will comment on just one sentence: “Diseased fish were displayed, but natural contamination of the Athabasca River was glossed over.” Fletcher is pushing an argument that was proven wrong in 2010. Several years ago, people down-stream from the oil-sands plants complained of diseased fish. They also complained of increased cancer rates. People were dying from rare forms of cancer! They blamed both items on pollutants that were put into in the Athabasca River by the oil-sands plants. The oil companies claimed that the pollutants in the river were naturally occurring. The governments of Canada and Alberta supported the companies. In 2010, a study by David Schindler and others proved that the pollution is indeed caused by the oilsands industry. At first both governments denied it. But the study was well-funded, well done and produced results that could stand up in court. Both governments conceded that Schindler was correct! Why was it necessary for private groups to fund that study? Are our governments not responsible for protecting us from pollutants that cause cancer? Are they not required to protect places such as the Peace Athabasca Delta, and other natural wonders down-stream from the oil-sands. Why were they so quick to side with the companies, when no such study had been done? What have they done to alleviate the situation? Finally, who are the “dummies” for whom Fletcher wrote the article? Bill McConnell, Surrey

Stayte dental Email policy Dr. Ali Salari is welcoming new patients upsets to our family dental clinic. resident Citizens are waiting too long to hear back from White Rock politicians, one resident complained last week. Wolfgang Schmitz told council April 16 he didn’t receive any response to five or six letters he emailed to his elected representatives through the city’s website over the past six months. “Why?” Schmitz asked, noting that when he asked one councillor if a particular email had been received, he was told no. Another email, sent to whiterockcouncil@ whiterockcity.ca – which the city’s website invites people to use if they’d like to reach all of council as a group – went unanswered for 17 days, Schmitz said. Mayor Wayne Baldwin explained that the group email is monitored by staff, who field and disseminate the hundreds of messages that come in to the person they believe is most appropriate, whether it be a particular councillor or a department head. Schmitz disagreed with the practice, stating citizens expect that their messages are going directly to the politicians, whether sent as a group or individually. “People are sending a message which is privileged and private and confidential,” he said. - Tracy Holmes

perspectives …on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

South Surrey’s Jean Roe, 90, is congratulated by daughter Charlotte Phillips after receiving the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal at a ceremony at HMCS Discovery earlier this month. Contributed photo

Jean Roe has lent her time to a variety of important causes

Volunteer honoured with Queen’s medal Alex Browne

I

Staff Reporter

n 1942, when Jean Roe spent nine months convalescing from a badly broken leg – result of a New Year’s Day skiing party she’d helped organize for some Canadian Forces personnel on leave – she made a solemn vow. “I’d broken my right leg in five places – I went through hell and I was only 19 at that time,” she recalled. “I said to myself, ‘if I can ever get back on my feet again, I’d spend my life helping others.’” And that’s just what the former newspaperwoman, a native of Botwood, N.L., and a Peninsula resident for the last 25 years, has done. Latest recognition of her outstanding record of volunteerism – for which she received the Order of Canada in

1982 – came April 11 when she received the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal in a ceremony at HMCS Discovery in Vancouver. Roe was among 87 distinguished Canadians from B.C., who were presented with the honour by Lt. Governor Steven Point. “I’m very proud of that,” Roe said of the new medal. “Most of the people who received it (at that ceremony) had received the Order of Canada before.” Roe, who previously also received the Queen’s Silver Jubilee medal, said she is particularly pleased that the honours she has received recognized her volunteerism. “Most of the people who get the order of Canada are established in literature and the arts,” she said, adding that there are too many unsung volunteers who make a

difference for them all to be recognized with an award or medal. “If the world didn’t turn out the number of volunteers it does, it wouldn’t be the place it is now,” she said. Her journalistic career, which began with the Western Star in Cornerbrook, N.L., also included stints at the Regina LeaderPost and the Moose Jaw Times Herald in Saskatchewan. A resident of Moose Jaw for 26 years with her late husband, the noted newspaper editor James Browning Roe, she eventually served the city for 10 years as a council member and was named Citizen of the Year in 1977. The ever-active Roe, who continues to volunteer her time and talents to many charitable organizations, including the Arthritis Society, the Canadian Cancer Society and UNICEF, also keeps busy

knitting warm garments for children across the province, and women and children throughout the developing world, through the Victoria-based organization Canada Comforts. She also volunteers for the Alexandra Neighbourhood House in Crescent Beach, and has long demonstrated her pride in Canada by organizing Canada Day celebrations in every community in which she lives. And her early injury didn’t put a crimp in her physical exercise regimen, either. In 2008 and 2009 Roe also made headlines – including one in the Western Star –when the Crescent Walkers, the seniors walking group she has led for 14 years, walked the equivalent of a cross-Canada trip (some 7,000 km) on the trails of Southern B.C. as a way to promote the B.C. Winter Olympics.

Students Cindy Cheng and Melissa Maat display backpacks showcased at the Opportunity Fest.

Old umbrellas at least get new life A student project that gives used umbrellas a second life - as backpacks â&#x20AC;&#x201C; secured a win at Simon Fraser University Surreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Opportunity Fest. The product earned a team of five students top spot in the sustainable category for Second Chance, a supplies material donation system. The team collected more than 30 lost and broken umbrellas, as well as 50 rice bags, from fellow SFU students, restaurants and other Lower Mainland businesses and used the materials to create 11 environmentally friendly bags. Each took about three hours to make, and is lightweight and sturdy, with shoulder straps. The rice bags were used to line the backpacks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to create something simple but totally practical, and help Vancouver reach its goal of becoming a greener city,â&#x20AC;? team member Cindy Chen said in a statement. The team is taking the concept to a fourth-year social venture class to

further advance their idea. Other winners in the April 11 contest included a hot tub water care system called Easy Care Water solutions, comprised of an electronic hand-held device which simultaneously measures for all required levels to maintain water chemistry balance in hot tubs. A third winner was â&#x20AC;&#x153;Smart Fitâ&#x20AC;?, a project in which students designed a wristband that measures heart rate and sleeping patterns, and utilizes Bluetooth. The three winners each received $1,000 to develop their projects. More than 100 students participated in the market-place style public exhibition. Organizer Eric Gedajlovic, described it as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a little bit of Dragonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Den, and a bit of Apprentice.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The teams take this opportunity to develop a full-blown project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Opportunity Fest gives them the chance to develop something they will really care about.â&#x20AC;?

The “Word Nerds” say goodbye to their longtime librarian Genny Sveinson, who is retiring on Friday.

‘Nerds’ bid adieu to librarian A group of Peace Arch Elementary Grade 5 students – dubbed the “Word Nerds” – stopped by White Rock Library last week to bid adieu to longtime librarian Genny Sveinson, who is retiring Friday. Throughout the year, Sveinson has helped the nine students with their Reading Link Challenge, in which they were tasked with reading books and then

– dressed in full ‘nerd’ regalia – successfully answered questions about them. The Word Nerds were the top team in Surrey and White Rock, and advanced to a grand challenge event at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. On April 19, chaperoned by teacher Leslie Porter, they thanked Sveinson for her help by bringing her flowers.

“The people here do so much to help elementary students. We’re really going to miss her,” said Porter. Sveinson has been at White Rock Library 12 years, and has been a library technician for more than 30. “It’s kind of sad to be leaving after all these years,” she said. “I’ll really miss it.” - Nick Greenizan

Saf Slim Croydon building planned Liquid or Business centre will complement original Grandview project

Nick Greenizan Staff Reporter

At this month’s official grand opening of the Grandview Business Centre, a neighbouring commercial building – meant to complement the first – was announced. The planned project, also built by Elkay Developments, will be called the Croydon Business Centre. It is be built just north of the current glass-and-concrete Grandview structure in the 2600block of Croydon Drive, and will be approximately 80,000 sq.ft. The announcement was made during an April 5 event at the Grandview Business Centre, attended by Surrey-White Rock MLA Gordon Hogg, Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts and other dignitaries. When construction of the Grandview Business Centre began in the fall of 2010, it gained attention for being one of just a

Like the Grandview project, the Croydon development, when finished, is to feature a glass facade, as well as artwork from sculptor Cathryn Jenkins, whose work is featured in the Grandview Centre. “A lot of these (projects) are just built quick and dirty, but we wanted to do take a bit of a different approach… we’re trying to make the nicest office buildings in the area,” Friesen said.

A six-week pilot project, which began March 1, saw the grocery chain’s recycling program expand to include metal and glass food containers, plastic yogurt and cottage cheese containers, laundry soap and milk jugs, medicine bottles, gardening pots and a variety of paper packaging. Over the six weeks, more than 29 tons of material was sent to Cascades Recovery Plus recycling facilities in Vancouver and Victoria.

EDITION

Volunteers help out of love for city  from page A18 bought 200 glass-plate negatives of White Rock created in the early and pre-1920s by Vancouver photographer Walter Calder. He donated the collection to the archives to provide the public a better understanding of White Rock’s past. Russell also served as the first chairman of the White Rock Museum & Archives board, and still takes a keen interest in the institution’s well-being. On retirement from her career as White Rock community librarian, Flora Morton donated herself to the fledgling archives, leading a volunteer team with such expertise and dedication that White Rock was declared the best small archives in B.C. Gerda Cremer, a bookkeeper by profession, quietly and efficiently kept the museum’s finances in order for 17 years, besides manning the gift shop two days a week. Awareness of our responsibility to our community doesn’t get better than this.

Notice of Temporary Commercial Use Permit

Who’s on first To emphasize the point of our story on White Rock ‘firsts’ in January, the statement that Connie Whittle was the first Miss White Rock needs clarification. Actually, the first person to be named Miss White Rock was Donna Pugh, in 1952. Unfortunately, rather than representing White Rock at the PNE pageant, she had to win the Miss Surrey contest to qualify. By 1955, the rules had changed

White Rock Museum & Archives photos

Built in 1910, White Rock’s first school (top) was built by volunteers, as was the city’s first hospital (above) in 1954. so that Connie went directly to the PNE competition as Miss White Rock. To confuse the issue further, Fern Walker became the first Miss White Rock after White Rock was incorporated as a city in 1957.

The program works to recover and recycle all regulated electronics in a responsible, cost effective manner. The Return-It system also ensures BC’s unwanted electronics are collected and recycled in an environmentally and socially responsible manner by using the Recycler Qualification Program (RQP). Since 2007, the EPRA program, previously run by ESABC, has diverted over 70.6 million kilograms of electronics out of BC landfills and illegal export, while recovering precious metals and other materials for use in future products. How Electronics are Recycled: Electronics collected in BC are sent to approved recyclers in North America. The items are broken down using various manual and mechanical processes. The remaining products are separated into their individual components for recovery. Through a variety of refining and smelting processes, the

Worker’s Day of Mourning Friday A ceremony by the flagpole in front of White Rock City Hall this Friday (April 27) will honour those, nationally and internationally, who have lost their lives, or been injured, at work. But it’s also a commitment to improving health and safety in the workplace, according to the event organizers, the City of White Rock and CUPE Local 402-01. The 8 a.m. ceremony is an advance marking of the international Worker’s Day of Mourning (also known as Worker’s Memorial Day) which is observed every April 28. Started in Canada – where April 28 is the anniversary of the milestone passage of the nation’s first Workers Compensation Act in 1914 – the tradition has now spread to more than 100 countries around the world.

Mayor Wayne Baldwin, who will speak at Friday’s ceremony, said the Worker’s Day of Mourning is an important way to reaffirm the city’s commitment to safety. “More than 1,000 workers are killed on the job each year, many of which are young or new workers,” he said in a news release Tuesday. “I hope the community will join us... as we reflect on the past and focus our attention on what we can do to increase health and safety in the workplace.” CUPE Local chair Mike Guraliuk echoed the call for renewed attention to safety while remembering past injuries and fatalities. “The number of people killed on the job is troubling,” Guraliuk said.

AND IMPLEMENT COMMON RATES On April 11, 2012, the FortisBC Energy Utilities applied to the British Columbia Utilities Commission to amalgamate their natural gas utilities across the province and to implement common rates and services across their service areas starting January 1, 2014.

If approved, the application would combine the three companies into one, under a single tariff, with common rates for the various regions. This Application has different implications for customers in each service area. If approved, customers in the Vancouver Island and Whistler service areas will see rate decreases, while customers in the Lower Mainland, Columbia, Inland, and Fort Nelson service areas will see an overall rate increase.

Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts said TransLink had no choice but to freeze bus service expansion plans after Metro Vancouver mayors withdrew approval for a property tax increase to pay for it. She said the decision will have a significant impact on Surrey and South of Fraser communities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Surrey residents have put $164 million per year into the system and now there is no money for the communities that are expected to take 70 per cent of the future growth in the region,â&#x20AC;? Watts said. The tax increase was to be a fall- back plan if the province didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t grant TransLink a new funding source, such as a vehicle levy.

densify because of proximity to transit routes. Walton said cities may let developers build higher and denser on such sites as part of negotiated deals to retain rental market housing. But, he said, there’s no escaping the fact the new units will rent for significantly more money than before. He and other Metro reps say the results underscore their push for reforms at the provincial and federal levels to foster more construction and replacement of purpose-built rental apartments. Preferred tax treatment for rental housing would help, they say, or perhaps a tax credit for owners who sell rental buildings to a non-profit operator. “We need a national housing policy,” Walton said. But he noted policies on affordable housing that work in the rest of Canada don’t fit in Metro Vancouver, because of the high land prices here. About a third of Metro Vancouver’s 325,000 renters live in lowrise wood frame buildings that are 40 to 50 years old. The study did not include the City of Vancouver, which accounts for about half the rental apartments in the region and was the focus of a separate study in 2009.

Riot probe cost VPD $2M

DAY SAME S ! D REFUN

TAX REFUNDS

The cost of investigating the 2011 Stanley Cup riot suspects has cost Vancouver Police more than $2 million in overtime and other expenses. And although the province has contributed $1 million, the City of Vancouver is pressing for Victoria to cover the other half of its costs. Mayor Gregor Robertson said 85 per cent of those arrested in connection with the riot last June 15 came from outside Vancouver. The largest number of people charged to date are from Surrey. So far, 225 riot-related charges have been laid against 85 accused rioters and the VPD expects to recommend another 100 charges to prosecutors, in addition to dozens more proposed charges Crown is still considering. Damage to property is estimated at $3 million.

Union members vote in favour of job action

ICBC seeks ruling to blunt potential strike Jeff Nagel Black Press

Unionized ICBC workers have voted 87 per cent in favour of strike action to back demands for hefty pay hikes totaling 10 per cent. The old collective agreement expired in 2010 and the 4,600 members of the Canadian Office and Professional Employees Union have been bargaining without a contract for 15 months. COPE local 378 vice-president Jeff Gillies said the strong vote reflects member “frustration” and said priority issues for the union are workload, wages and contracting out. The union wants five per cent pay raises in each of 2012 and 2013, he said, while the employer wants a fiveyear contract with no pay increases. “The corporation has been extremely profitable,” Gillies said. “It’s time to share some success with the workers.” He cited the provincial government’s decision to siphon nearly $1.2 billion out of ICBC over a five-year period, and said auto body shops, lawyers and other contracted professionals are all receiving more from ICBC. The Crown corporation, meanwhile, applied to

the Labour Relations Board on April 19 to have parts of the ICBC workforce designated essential services, restricting the scope of any job action. The filing says the designation is required to maintain the flow of rehabilitation and accident benefits to injured drivers, to register, license and insure vehicles, and to continue issuing and renewing driver’s licences, as well as revoking those of prohibited drivers. It says there will be “irreparable harm” to the public without the ruling, along with serious financial damage to various individuals and businesses. A ruling from the LRB is expected by late May. Gillies was hopeful talks could resume in May in light of the strike mandate. “As far as a full-blown strike, that’s a very remote possibility – it’s somewhere far off in negotiations,” he said, adding the union would instead first consider “strategic job action” to put pressure on the corporation and the government if talks fail. “We’re not interested in putting drivers in the middle of this.” The union also accuses the province of blocking full negotiations until a government-ordered

Officer injured Kevin Diakiw Black Press

A Surrey police officer is in hospital with multiple fractures and lacerations after a serious accident in Newton last week. Just after 5 p.m. Wednesday, an unmarked police car was responding to a report of a theft of vehicle in progress and had lights and siren going. The officer, who has less than five years experience, was heading westbound down the centre of the road on 64 Avenue and early witness accounts indicate traffic was pulling over to make way for the police vehicle.

As the Mountie reached the 15600block of 64 Avenue, his car sideswiped an eastbound 1992 Jeep, causing both vehicles to spin off the road. The lone occupant of the police car suffered multiple fractures and lacerations, and was transported to hospital by air ambulance. The occupant of the Jeep, a 22-yearold Surrey resident, sustained less serious lacerations and bruises and was treated at hospital. The road was closed in both directions for several hours. The RCMP Criminal Collision Investigative Team has taken conduct of the investigation.

review of ICBC announced last fall is complete. ICBC spokesman

Mark Jan Vrem confirmed the corporation has no mandate from Victoria

to bargain on monetary issues pending the results of the review, but said non-monetary

issues can still be negotiated. He said the essential services application is

the “responsible thing to do” but added ICBC hopes for a settlement without job action.

news Extra month given to mayors to sign new contract Rotary Club of White Rock Millennium proudly presents:

Cities to decide on RCMP Jeff Nagel Black Press

B.C. cities under pressure to sign a new RCMP contract renewing the Mounties for another 20 years have been given a onemonth deadline extension until May 31 to make up their minds. But even that may not be enough time to answer a barrage of unanswered questions being raised by some mayors who have balked at signing. “I suspect it may have to go far beyond that,” Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie said of the new May 31 deadline. He spoke after leaving a meeting of Lower Mainland mayors in Surrey Friday morning and said he continues to have deep reservations about a number of unresolved issues. While Surrey – the biggest detachment in Canada – has already signed, many other municipalities held off after it was revealed newly approved pay hikes for Mounties go beyond what the federal government had forewarned cities about last year. Brodie and others say the concerns are about more than the pay hikes, which give the RCMP an extra 5.25 per cent over three years. One issue involves an interpretation document that is to accompany the actual contract and

Province pressured to save farmland Jeff Nagel Black Press

B.C. must insist the federal government abstain from using its powers to override the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) and industrialize large swathes of Delta farmland for portrelated uses, according to the NDP Opposition. New Democrat MLAs tabled a motion in the legislature last week that would ask Ottawa to agree not to exempt land acquired by Port Metro Vancouver from the land reserve. At issue is the fate of 600 acres of ALR land in South Delta near Deltaport that developers have secured options to purchase with a view to selling to Port Metro Vancouver. Agriculture defenders say the area is prime farmland that should not be lost and each chunk that is converted threatens the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long-term food security. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to hear that the Liberal government will fight to protect this farmland from being excluded using a loophole that allows the federal government to pull land out of the reserve without going through the Agricultural Land Commission,â&#x20AC;? NDP agriculture critic Lana

Popham said. Agriculture Minister Don McRae responded in the legislature, saying he expects the port and anyone else seeking to withdraw land from the ALR to apply to the land commission and work through the normal process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ALC will do what it does well,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It defends its mandate: preserving farmland, protecting farmers in British Columbia. I have no reason to think otherwise.â&#x20AC;? That wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t good enough for DeltaNorth NDP MLA Guy Gentner, who said the Opposition will continue to prod the BC Liberals to take a stand. Delta-South independent MLA Vicki Huntington is also fighting the deal. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s circulating a petition that will be tabled in Victoria. Port Metro Vancouver officials have said developing agricultural land to expand the port would be a last resort, but they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rule it out. They have also made statements that the ALR is increasingly in conflict with other objectives, such as ensuring enough land is available for industry and jobs.

Stop puppy mills, says MLA "I have golfed in the Rotary Tournament since 2005 and it is hands down the best Charity Golf Tournament in the community. The networking opportunities have opened many doors and more importantly built many relationships with key leaders in our business community. I will continue to play in the Rotary Tournament for many, many years to come." Nicholas Popoff,OWNER'EM(OSPITALITY 0EARL5RBAN"ISTRO AND/NYX3TEAKHOUSEAND,OUNGE (ANDICAP

VICTORIA â&#x20AC;&#x201C; North Vancouver-Seymour MLA Jane Thornthwaite has proposed new legislation to regulate commercial dog and cat breeding. Thornthwaite introduced a private membersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bill Monday that would set standards of care for breeders with three or more female dogs or cats of reproductive age. The bill specifies daily feedings, as well as minimum standards for sanitation, shelter and transportation. The bill sets a maximum of three litters in three years for each mother animal, and a lifetime maximum of six litters. Breeders would be required to wean puppies or kittens onto solid food by seven weeks of age before they can be sold or â&#x20AC;&#x153;rehomed.â&#x20AC;? Thornthwaite said B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t specific enough to deal with unscrupulous operators of â&#x20AC;&#x153;puppy millsâ&#x20AC;? who abuse breeding animals for profit. The current legislation prohibits owners from causing animals â&#x20AC;&#x153;to be in distressâ&#x20AC;? and empowers the SPCA to inspect and enforce the law. The new regulations will give the SPCA more authority to regulate or shut down breeding operations that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t meet the standards, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What happens now is that a

Government initiative hits six-month mark

Quit-smoking program popular

Tom Fletcher

Black Press

VICTORIA – The B.C. government’s quit-smoking program has hit the six-month mark, with more than 100,000 orders for free nicotine patches, gum or anti-smoking drugs. Health Minister Mike de Jong said last week that about half of those are first-time applicants, for a program that allows up to two refills of 12-week supplies of quit-smoking aids. The 50,000 people represent about nine per cent of the 550,000 people in the province who still smoke. Scott McDonald, CEO of the BC Lung Association, said 15 per cent of B.C. residents smoke, the lowest rate in Canada. But that is still too many. “About 70 per cent of habitual smokers want to kick the habit, and we want to motivate them to make an attempt,” McDonald said. “They’re not always successful.” The Lung Association estimates that when people try to quit cold turkey, they are only successful between four and six per cent of the time. With the help of nicotine patches, gum or prescription drugs, that success rate doubles, and with the help of counselling available through the program it

Peter Lee and Julie Lin will perform on May 5.

More than 100 young musicians with the Surrey Symphony Society will take to the stage May 5 to celebrate spring with a repertoire sprinkled with Mozart, Bizet and Rossini – as well as an unexpected dash of Pirates. The evening concert, A Spring Celebration will see the Junior Strings group perform the Overture to Rossini’s playful Barber of Seville. The Intermediate Strings ensemble will then swashbuckle their way through music from The Pirates of the Caribbean, and then prove they aren’t actually rabble-rousing pirates after all, by performing Lizt’s Hungarian Rhapsody when they’re done.

performances by the two winners of the orchestra’s first-ever solo competition. Julie Lin, 13, will perform the second movement of Mozart’s graceful Violin Concerto No. 5. Her colleague, 14-year-old Peter Lee will perform the entrancing Adagio from a little-heard Clarinet Concerto by Krommer. And as a grand finale, 85 kids will pack the stage and shake the hall with Copland’s Hoedown. The youth orchestra will be led at this concert by Dr. John van Deursen, who was welcomed by the society as the new conductor following the retirement of founder Lucille Lewis last year. Van Deursen was previously principal guest conductor with the Taipei Philharmonic, and is currently also Head

of Instrumental Ensembles at Douglas College. Soloist Lin said she is honored to be able to perform a piece by a “genius of music” like Mozart, with conductor Dr. John Van Deursen and the Surrey Youth Orchestra. “I always learn so much at rehearsals, and have lots of fun,” said Lin. “I hope both my orchestra and I will play well at our concert, so the audience can enjoy our music, and make Mozart proud.” The concert takes place May 5 at 7 p.m. at Chandos Pattison Auditorium, 10238 168 St. Tickets ($15 and $10) are available at the door, by calling 604-833-7915 or email inquiries@surreyyouthorchestra.org -Black Press

One of the great advantages of youth is that – unlike cynical adults – you haven’t had time to learn the impossibility of things. And, if you’re very lucky, like the Grade 6 students in the Fine Arts program at White Rock Elementary, you have teachers like Donna Vosloh and Monika Tusnady who actively encourage ‘possibility’ thinking. Lucky parents – and a few other invitees – will get to see that approach in action May 1 at 1 p.m. when the students will present their production of The Lorax, based on the famous children’s book by Dr. Seuss. No simple adaptation this – in the current version, created by the students themselves, Seuss’ deceptively simple tale of corporate greed versus environmentalism has become a full-fledged opera, complete with arias (or “songs” as the students call them), ensemble choruses and character themes. As student Chloe Miller (who does double duty as script editor and the role of of ‘The Child”) proudly related: “It’s based on the book, but we made our own lines, songs and dances, sound and lighting.” They weren’t entirely left to their own devices, as Miller acknowledged. “Ms. Tusnady helped with the music, and Ms. Vosloh, who’s our drama teacher and regular teacher, helped arrange the script and put it all together.” Also very helpful as the students developed their ideas, was the input of Roxy Giles of Vancouver Opera, who partnered with the school on the production as part of an outreach initiative called Words!Music!Opera! At the same time, the production places a lot of responsibility on the shoulders of Miller and other students, including director Paris Samoil, choreographer Talia Spilchen and capable sound and lighting technicians Bryn McDougall and Jared

Schellenberg. It’s also involved months of work and the important lesson that everyone must pitch in and play their part if the show is to succeed. But it’s clear from the excited response of the creative team that one of the big successes has been enlisting the creativity of classmates and allowing them to take ownership of their part of the process. “Talia and Chloe and I held auditions, and if you wanted to audition, you had to write your own song,” said Samoil, adding that Spilchen also created a small dance routine specifically for auditionees. “It’s helped me because I want to be a choreographer when I’m older – it’s been a big learning opportunity,” said Spilchen. The process not only encouraged involvement but actually helped build the opera, they said. “We took bits and pieces of the audition songs and made them into the songs in the show,” Samoil said. Also requiring creativity was expanding the story – which has only a few named characters – into a piece with some 18 speaking, or singing, roles (some 30 students, in all are involved in the production). Listening to a run through of some of the show, it’s evident the audience is in for a treat. Far from heavy and bombastc stereotypes of operatic music, the students have come up with a tuneful and melodic score that is a little more Broadway than the Met. But they’ve also learned a few things about the power of opera as a medium, they said. “There’s something about singing that is so much more emotional – you can pull the audience in more,” said Isabella Worden, who plays the role of the Once-ler, the business entrepreneur whose obsession with manufacturing ‘Thneeds’ leads to the destruction of all the Truffula trees, in spite of the warning

Choir to celebrate hospice

Surrey Offroad Cycling Enthusiasts

Alex Browne Arts Reporter

It’s an upbeat gospel choir performance that also celebrates a long-term commitment to the community. The upcoming return appearance of Vancouver’s acclaimed Universal Gospel Choir at White Rock Baptist Church (Saturday, May 5, 7:30 p.m., 1657 140 St.) is also a commemoration of White Rock South Surrey Hospice Society’s 30 years of serving the Semiahmoo Peninsula. Over that time, the society has provided free support services for thousands of families facing advanced illness of a loved one. The choir’s musical director, Kathryn Nicholson, has her own special connection to palliative work, as a part-time clinical counsellor at Canuck Place Children’s Hospice. White Rock South Surrey Hospice society executive director Catherine Ferguson noted the choir’s diverse repertoire makes each performance unique, inspiring and mind-opening. The large ensemble is noted for authentically-delivered songs from not only African-American, but also Cuban, African, European, Jewish, Asian and First Nations’ musical traditions. “Their culturally rich performance last year was very enjoy-

John Martins reflects on season after being recognized at Orange Helmet Awards

Award honours whole team, says coach Nick Greenizan

T

Sports Reporter

he way John Martins figures it, the BC Lions owed him a favour. Throughout last fall’s football season, Martins’ team – the White RockSouth Surrey midget Titans – won week-in, week-out, eventually culminating in an undefeated season and a provincial title. At the same time, the BC Lions were struggling to bounce back from an 1-6 start to the Canadian Football League, which they did – capping their improbable comeback with a Grey Cup title in November.

And Martins, the midget squad’s head coach, jokes now that it was his team’s play that inspired the Lions’ winning streak. The longtime coach is good friends with BC Lions’ player personnel co-ordinator Neil McEvoy, himself a White Rock native. Every week, McEvoy would call Martins to ask how the Titans did. “We won,” Martins would say. “Good, we’ll just follow your lead then,” was McEvoy’s reply. And the Lions did, reeling off 10 wins in 11 games to end the CFL regular season, before rolling through the post-season to win a league title on home turf.

Then, in the off-season, Lions’ Wally Buono was named CFL coach of the year. Four weeks later, Collins followed his lead, being named B.C. community football coach of the year at the prestigious, BC Lions-hosted Orange Helmet Awards Dinner on March 30. Consider the favour repayed. “It’s kind of funny that it worked out that way,” Martins laughed. When the award was announced at the banquet, Martins admits he wasn’t surprised – “they have to let you know to make sure you’re going to be there,” he said – but regardless, he was in good company.

The Orange Helmet Awards, which were held at the Westin Bayshore in Vancouver, honoured the province’s top amateur teams, coaches and managers, and featured a keynote address from former NFL star Herschel Walker. “It was quite an honour, and quite a night,” said Martins, whose team was also honoured as one of the provincial champions. In December, the midget Titans capped an undefeated Vancouver Mainland Football League season with a 36-13 win over the Coquitlam Falcons in the B.C.  see page A48

Sharks clinch Sports Reporter

With a single win Saturday afternoon, the Bayside Sharks Div. 1 men’s rugby team not only secured a first-place finish in the spring league, but also punched their ticket back to the premier circuit in the fall. In the last game of the regular season, the Sharks defeated the Velox Valhallian 34-25 – and also picked up two bonus points – to finish the season with a 7-2 record and 44 points, which ties them with the Vancouver Rowing Club atop the standings. Bayside, however, holds the tiebreaker advantage over the Rowers, which gives them first place, plus the lone spot in the fall’s B.C. Premier Rugby League, from which the Sharks were bounced after struggling last fall. “We’re pretty pumped. It’s nice vindication, and getting back there was our goal, so it feels pretty good,” said Sharks head coach Pat Kearney. “Only one team gets in (to the premier league) so there wasn’t a lot of cushion there, but we were able to pull it off – sometimes we just like to make it tough on ourselves though.” On Saturday, the Sharks got tries from Spencer and Zach Thorpe, Josh Areai and Connor Dickie, but the game was far from an easy victory, Kearney said. The Sharks led just 14-13 at halftime, until turning up the pressure in the second half. “Velox kept it really close. It was a tough game, for sure,” Kearney said. Peter Clifford, last fall’s premier league leading scorer, was perfect on kicks Saturday, hitting on all four of his conversion attempts, while adding a penalty kick and a drop-goal. The Sharks were also buoyed by the return of former captain Adam Van Stavern, who has played only sporadically in recent months. “He’s a former captain, a national team player – he was a huge boost for us. He was all over the field on Saturday, making tackles. It was awesome,” said Kearney. “He’s still a world-class player.” The Sharks now have a first-round playoff bye

this weekend, and will return to the pitch May 5 for the finals, against a yet-to-be-determined opponent. The game will be held at South Surrey Athletic Park. Bayside’s second division men’s team, which finished second in the regular season, will be in action this weekend, however, taking on third-seed Richmond. The winner advances to the finals against the Vancouver Rowing Club on May 5.

sports Former Renegade awarded Taylor Medal

High marks for Doornberg

Robert Jordan/University of Mississippi photo

Corrine Doornberg, a senior on the Ole Miss Rebels, has earned high praise for her work on the field and in the classroom.

Corrine Doornberg has received the University of Mississippi’s highest academic honour. Doornberg, a former White Rock Renegade softball star, was one of 64 recipients of the Taylor Medal in the College of Liberal Arts earlier this month at the university’s annual honours convocation. The Langley resident, a Brookswood Secondary graduate, is a fourth-year infielder on the Rebels’ women’s softball team. She was one of three from the team to earn the honour. The Taylor Medal recognizes outstanding academic performance and is given to no more than one per cent of the student body. To be considered, a student must have a grade point average of at least 3.9. The 22-year-old Doornberg has a 3.93 average in civil engineering and is a member of the Honours College. She is a three-time member of the Southeast Conference (SEC) academic honour roll. On the field, Doornberg is batting .316 for the Rebels and is tied for second with 25 runs scored. Prior to heading south, Doornberg not only played for the Renegades, but was also a member of the 2007 Canadian junior women’s national team.

OBITUARIES

Advertisers are reminded that Provincial legislation forbids the publication of any advertisement which discriminates against any person because of race, religion, sex, color, nationality, ancestry or place of origin, or age, unless the condition is justified by a bona fide requirement for the work involved.

Reg passed peacefully into God’s hands on April 16, 2012 with his wife Peggy and family at his bedside. A standout in football, baseball and basketball, Reg’s remarkable athletic career earned him a place in the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame and recognition as one of the province’s finest all-around athletes. Reg was an avid golfer for the past 50 years, playing almost daily until his final round at Peace Portal in January 2012. As was so often the case, Reg won his final match and shot below his age. An outspoken defender of the poor and unrelenting advocate for “the least among us,” Reg focused his efforts on changes to the prison system, welfare reform and women’s rights. His passion for philanthropy was truly rare and an inspiration to many who entered his life. This vigor for charity and education earned Reg a Masters of Social Work from UBC in 1964; returning to university with six children already at home. Reg’s 60-year marriage to wife Peggy produced 8 children, 13 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren; all of whom he was tremendously proud of. His sons and daughters-in-law were equally cherished, and Reg was a fatherfigure to many more nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by daughter Clare and grandson Phillip. Reg’s Memorial Mass will be held on Friday April 27th at the Good Shepherd Church in South Surrey at 1:30pm. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to a charity of your choice.

COATES, James R. “Jim” James passed from this life in White Rock, British Columbia on Friday, April 13, 2012 at the age of 56. He was preceded in death by his parents William and Rita Coates and brother William “Bill” Coates. He is survived by his daughter Leana Korthuis of Bonney Lake, WA and her husband Shane, and his son Daryl Coates of Bellingham, WA and his wife Hillary. Sister Sharon Phelps of Surrey, BC, brothers Nigel Brighton of White Rock, BC, and Donald Coates of Ottawa, ON. He leaves seven grandchildren, Logan, Benjamin, Ian, Amanda, Lauren, James and Priel and a special great-nephew Darren. He will be missed by all who knew him and loved him and cherished his laughter, generosity and a good game of cribbage.

Surrounded by love in the presence of his children and grandchildren, Harold passed away in peace. He was predeceased by his wife, the love of his life, Hilda (2003). He is survived by his son Stephen, daughter Margaret (Gary Dumbrell), grandchildren Leanne (Christian), Allison (Frank), and Joseph, and great - grandchildren Everett, Isla and Elizabeth. He will also be missed by his nieces, nephews and many friends. Born in Thunder Bay, Ont., he grew up on a farm where his passion for nature and the environment began. In 1939, he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force. While serving overseas, he met Hilda. They started their new life together in Nanaimo, eventually moving to Vancouver. They then settled to Burnaby Heights, where they raised their family and became active members of the community. Harold worked tirelessly and enthusiastically in the automotive industry, delighting in the places he visited and the people he met. He had a deep passion for birds, nature and poetry writing. Harold loved all that life had to offer and lived his life to the fullest. He will be remembered for his love, compassion, wisdom, optimism, courage, knowledge, and humour that he offered to all who met him. A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, May 5 at 1:00 pm at Parish of Saint Timothy, 4550 Kitchener Street, Burnaby. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the charity of your choice.

Onni brings final high-rise project to Victoria Hill

Find the great outdoors at Parkside If you’re looking for amazing views, a family-friendly community and beautiful homes, look no further than Onni’s Parkside at Victoria Hill, now open for previewing. “You’d be hard-pressed to find something in New West like it,” says Onni’s Nick Belmar. Encompassing 226 one- and twobedroom condominiums and 22 townhomes, Parkside is the final high-rise tower in the Victoria Hill development. The 22-storey tower will offer beautiful views from every home, and the atmosphere is second-to-none. The Victoria Hill project has been in development for over a decade, and

will eventually include more than 1,200 homes set on 65 acres. More than 40 of those acres are green space. “Not a lot of projects can offer these natural amenities,” Belmar says. The building is surrounded by trails, and Queens Park and Glenbrook Ravine are next door. When completed Parkside will include amenities such as a chef ’s kitchen, outdoor pool, community garden and a fitness studio. “(For) brand-new construction in a community like this, the price is unbeatable,” Belmar says. Homes start at $249,900. For more information visit onni.com/parkside or call 604-523-0733.

European-style living

Leave the car behind at Morgan Crossing by Kerry Vital

When you live at South Surrey’s Morgan Crossing, loneliness is a thing of the past. With more than 60 shops and services right outside your front door, including Winners, Steve Nash Sports Club and Thrifty Foods, there is literally something for everyone, and you’ll rapidly run out of excuses for being a couch potato. Creating a community feel is the core of the entire concept, says Bryan Woolley of Fingerprint Strategies. Developed by Larco Investments, the company behind the Village at Park Royal, Morgan Crossing has the feel of a European-style village. One of the advantages in living in Morgan Crossing is its easy walkability and proximity to nearly everything you would need on a day-to-day basis. With shops, restaurants and fitness right outside your front door, it won’t take long to run your daily errands. “You can go in your pajamas and your slippers if you want!” laughs Woolley. Larco has been very successful in creating a village feel when you walk into Morgan Crossing, and Woolley says that there is a wide range of demographics buying homes, from 19-year-olds just starting out to seniors downsizing. “If you don’t like people, this isn’t the place to be,” Woolley says, adding that when you walk out your door, you’re almost guaranteed to meet someone that you know. The homes at Morgan Crossing are chic and modern, with generous patios and balconies, electric fireplaces and hardwood laminate floors throughout the main living areas. The kitchens feature European laminate cabinets, soft-close drawers (no more door slamming), granite and silestone countertops and an elegant glass or mosaic stainless-steel backsplash. The bathrooms are perfect for relaxing after a long day, with chic porcelain and ceramic tile flooring, granite and marble countertops and roomy tubs with hand-set ceramic tile surrounds. There are many different floorplans available, ranging from one to three bedrooms, some with dens. With the number of plans available, you will have no trouble finding the perfect home for you. Looking to be right in the middle of the action? Finding a home on the main street would work for you.

Perhaps a mountain view is your style? Morgan Crossing has several homes with that gorgeous scenery. “The biggest draw is the village,” Woolley says. “You’re not spending time going to the disparate pieces of your life ... it’s a more sustainable lifestyle. We don’t get too many people driving between stores.” One of the great things about living in Morgan Crossing is the variety of community events that are held frequently, including car shows, outdoor movie nights and festivals. The community is “so vibrant and interesting,” Woolley says. With the warmer weather on its way, he expects that the outdoor walkways will soon be bustling. Homes start at $234,900. For more information, visit morgancrossing.ca or call 604-582-1336.

If you don’t like people, this isn’t the place to be,” says Bryan Woolley of Fingerprint Strategies.

Submitted photos

There are plenty of things to do in Morgan Crossing, from checking out the latest styles to grabbing groceries for a casual dinner party. The homes at Morgan Crossing, including The Summit House, top, are elegant and modern, with plenty of outdoor space for entertaining.

Buy a Power Smart home, save three ways Save now, and save later: not many homes can promise you that. But when you buy a home from a Power Smart New Home Builder youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll save money, including reduced mortgage insurance and lower monthly bills. An EnerGuide label is your assurance that the home is independently rated to be energy-efďŹ cient. And donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget, an energyefďŹ cient home is more comfortable too. Layout, amenities, and those much-promoted granite countertops. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot to think about when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re buying a new home. But thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one feature that can make a positive difference to your wallet when you purchase, and every month that you own your home. Choosing a Power Smart New Home gives home buyers an easy way to find a home that is designed and built to save energy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buying an energy-efficient home is one of the best ways to maximize your home budget,â&#x20AC;? says Doug Overholt, representative for BC Hydroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Power Smart New Home program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you save on expenses, you can afford more mortgage. But many new homes are not built with energy efficiency in mind - so looking for the EnerGuide label is wise.â&#x20AC;? An EnerGuide rating is a standard measure of a homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s energy performance, rated on a scale of 0 to 100. A rating of 0 represents a home with major air leakage, no insulation and extremely high energy consumption. A rating of 100 represents a house that is airtight, well insulated, sufficiently ventilated and requires no purchased energy. The first benefit youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find is on your mortgage insurance: Power Smart New Homes qualify for a 10 per cent refund on Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation Mortgage

â&#x20AC;&#x153;

Buying an energy-efďŹ cient home is one of the best ways to maximize your home budget,â&#x20AC;? says Doug Overholt, representative for BC Hydroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Power Smart New Home program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you save on expenses, you can afford more mortgage.â&#x20AC;?

Insurance. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also save on your monthly bills. Homes that are rated EnerGuide 80 use at least 30 per cent less energy than an average new home. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s money in your pocket every month â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially great when energy costs are only expected to rise. Buy a home with a rating higher than EnerGuide 80, and save even more. The third benefit is resale value; as energy costs rise and green building continues to gain popularity, a home that demonstrates its efficiency will likely hold its value as compared to one that is inefficient with high monthly operating costs. There are other benefits as well, Overholt says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Builders who are smart about energy efficiency are adopting improved building practices and making use of new technologies. Their homes are more comfortable â&#x20AC;&#x201C; cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter â&#x20AC;&#x201C; while using less energy overall. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to add energy efficiency later; you need to get it built in from the start.â&#x20AC;? The Power Smart New Home program gives you an easy way to find houses, townhomes, and condos that are designed to save energy. For more information and to find your energy efficient dream home, check out the full listing of Power Smart New Home Builders and featured developments at bchydro.com/pshomes.

        

 NOT ALL NEW HOMES ARE BUILT WITH ENERGY EFFICIENCY IN MIND. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why it pays to look for a Power Smart New Home Builder when shopping for your next home. Power Smart New Homes are independently rated EnerGuide 80 or higher, which means they use at least 30% less energy than an average new home. And since theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re built the smart way, they stay cooler in the summer and cozier in the winterâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;all while saving you money for years to come.
