PAN judged best in Canada Peace Arch News was named the country’s best large community newspaper Thursday evening by the Canadian Community Newspaper Association. The CCNA announced the award at a gala in Toronto, giving Peace Arch News highest marks out of 50 entries in the 25,000-and-over circulation category. The adjudication was based on several criteria, including range of coverage, quality of writing, Member photography, layout and CCNA advertising design. Second-place honours went to Mountain News in Hamilton, Ont., and third prize went to PAN’s sister paper, Surrey/North Delta Leader, which won gold for best front page. Thursday’s announcement followed several accolades received by PAN in recent weeks. Earlier this month, PAN was named the province’s best overall newspaper in its distribution category – for the second year in a row – by B.C. & Yukon Community Newspapers Association judges, and members of PAN’s writing staff received international honours by the U.S.based Local Media Association. “It’s an incredible testament to the perseverance and dedication of our entire team to our readers, especially given the heartbreak we suffered last year,” said longtime ad manager Rita Walters, who was named publisher last fall following the sudden death of communitychampion Linda Klitch. “We take great pride that the newspaper we present to our readers and business partners in our community has been judged so highly by our peers.” Receiving the award in Toronto, Black Press COO Rick O’Connor, a South Surrey resident, dedicated the award to Klitch’s memory.

Neighbours frustrated by repeated standoffs in quiet neighbourhood
ERT swarms home three times Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter
Residents of a normally quiet South Surrey neighbourhood estimate more than a dozen police officers – including heavily armed members of the Emergency Response Team (ERT) – swarmed their street Saturday evening.
It was the third time in less than three weeks that police have been called to the same rental property in the 16400-block of 10 Avenue, a small older house hidden behind overgrown hedges. All three times, it was the result of reported screaming and vandalism inside the house. Twice, the
26-year-old male occupant was forcibly removed from the scene following a standoff with police. In the most recent incident, RCMP closed 10 Avenue near 164 Street to all but local traffic around 10 p.m. after neighbours heard loud noises inside the house. “Howling and wailing and bash-
ing,” is how one resident remembers the disturbance. “It was eerie.” An RCMP report indicates a man had punched out several windows. He was described in the report as “heavily intoxicated” and suffering from “mental-health issues.” see page 4

59 suites evacuated in White Rock apartment fire
‘Flames were as high as the building’ Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter
Two people were taken to hospital Thursday after an early-morning fire broke out in a White Rock apartment building, causing extensive damage. But the city’s fire chief says it was sheer luck that the blaze didn’t end in tragedy – given that the smoke alarm in the unit where it started wasn’t working. “(She was) a very fortunate resident to have made her way out of that suite… she woke to

the smell of smoke,” Chief Phil Lemire said. Residents of the Vinewood – an older, threestorey wood-frame complex in the 14900block of Vine Avenue – were alerted to trouble around 6:25 a.m. April 26, as building alarms sounded and smoke filled the hallways. Second-floor resident Neil Midgley said he heard a bang, then the sound of breaking glass, before the alarms went off. “There was like a really loud explosion,” he said, noting his first thought was that a nearby transformer had blown.
He quickly realized it was much more. “I went out on my balcony, looked down and the apartment one below and over, the flames were as high as the building. I got my clothes, then the alarm bells went off.” Midgley said he had to stoop to avoid the smoke that quickly filled his suite. Byron Robertson, who lives in a second-floor unit on the building’s east side, said it was the third time alarms have gone off in the building in the past month. see page 4

news New owner gives mayor a sneak peak of upcoming proposal
Newton casino more ambitious: Watts Kevin Diakiw Black Press
Plans for a Newton casino are forging ahead and look even more ambitious than those previously considered by city council, Surrey’s mayor says. The 7093 King George Blvd. property has had a long and troubled history. In 2009, Boardwalk Gaming promised a $25-million investment that would see a revitalized mall and community policing station in exchange for a lucrative zoning change that would allow slot machines at Newton Square Bingo Country. The rezoning was in violation of Surrey’s existing gaming policy, but it passed on a 5-4 vote.
Last June, Boardwalk flipped the property to Gateway Casinos and Entertainment, which now has the legal authority to fire up slot machines but no obligation to invest the $25 million that Boardwalk had promised. Although the building looks the same from the outside, Gateway marketing officer Randy Sears says interior work has been extensive. “We’ve got a lot of work to do on the building, so we’ve had some contractors in there, smartening the place up and redoing the wiring and getting it up to code,” Sears told Black Press last week. Sears said nothing firm has been decided regarding more ambitious construction. “We’re exploring all options, but we’re really
not committing to anything at this time.” However, Mayor Dianne Watts met with Gateway Thursday to look at rough drawings of the plans to completely renovate the mall and casino. “The architectural drawings are almost completed and by the looks of things, they will be redeveloping the entire site,” Watts said, noting the Gateway plan is more ambitious that the one pitched by the previous owner. “Boardwalk was just going to do some façade work on those old buildings,” Watts said. “Right now, they’re looking at redeveloping the (entire) mall.” How soon the work will happen is unclear. “The architect’s drawings will be done in
a couple of weeks,” Watts said, adding she’s happy to see it moving forward. “The redevelopment of that site is something we’ve wanted for quite some time.” It’s believed the redevelopment plans could be before council in two to three months. Some have said it could be the site of Newton’s first mixed-use highrise. Other observers still would rather the area had no slot machines whatsoever. “We’ve got enough problems without casinos in that area,” said resident Pat Cechetto. “It’s the poor people that are going to go there looking to make money.” Cechetto expressed concern for welfare recipients gambling away their money.

Newton Learning Centre students (from left) Robin Smith, Juvon Parkes and Roxanne Hawks hope to keep the school at its current Newton site.
Learning Centre to move to North Surrey
Students lament school’s relocation Sheila Reynolds Black Press
Teens who attend a specialized high school program in Newton are worried that a plan to move their school to North Surrey could have a negative impact on at-risk students. The Newton Learning Centre, for students who haven’t found success in the mainstream school system for various reasons, is slated to move by September. More than 200 Grade 10 to 12 students currently attend classes in a building near the corner of 64 Avenue and King George Boulevard that the district has leased for years. They’ll move into the Discovery School building at 109 Avenue and 131 Street (the 60 or so students at Discovery are moving into another elementary school) this fall. Roxanne Hawks has attended the Newton alternative school for the past four years. The 18-year-old said harassment she faced in her regular high school made school a “pain” for her and set her on a path that included illegal drug use.
“I was kind of like a street kid and didn’t care about anything,” said Hawks. Her mom, desperate to help her daughter, enrolled her at Newton Learning Centre. At first, the teen said, she was afraid and resisted her new school. “But I realized, even after a couple of days, that everyone accepted me.” Now, she gets As and Bs – a sharp contrast to the failing grades she used to bring home – and hopes to graduate next year. But she worries how the school’s planned move to North Surrey will affect her schoolmates. Many of the kids have told her they can’t afford the transit costs to get to the new locale in Whalley. Others, some of whom are battling issues of addiction or abuse, are worried about the temptations and reminders they’ll face travelling through the downtown core. “There are a lot of vulnerable students here,” said Hawks. She and three of her fellow students met
with Surrey’s superintendent of schools Mike McKay, school board chair Laurae McNally and assistant superintendent Dave Paul on Thursday morning. McNally said she was impressed with the articulate students and the sincerity of their concerns. She said the school move will go ahead, but district staff will work on a plan to ease the transition for students and allay their fears. “What we want to do is get them into a school district-owned building so that they never have to move again,” McNally said. Due to demand, Surrey has been searching for a place to open a learning centre in the north end of the city for years. When they decided to move the Discovery program, they knew they’d finally found the spot. McNally said having a learning centre location both in Newton and North Surrey is unlikely right now due to financial dilemmas and the lack of appropriate space in the Newton neighbourhood. Vacating the current location will save the district thousands per year in lease payments.
A South Surrey man who went to court to withdraw his guilty plea on charges of possessing child pornography announced Monday he is withdrawing his application. Douglas Wayne Bowers made the change before Judge Michael Hicks in Surrey Provincial Court. It means his original guilty plea – entered in December 2010 – stands, and sentencing will proceed. “It can be dismissed with prejudice, by consent,” Bowers’ lawyer, Robert Doran, told the court. “Those are his instructions to me.” Bowers, a carpenter, was charged in September 2009 with possessing and accessing child pornography, after an investigation by the RCMP’s Integrated Child Exploitation Team led investigators to a man they called a “prolific distributor of child sexual abuse images and video online.” While a teenaged B.C. victim was identified, police found no indication Bowers was involved in the production of child pornography. Bowers pleaded guilty to the possession charge shortly before his three-day trial was scheduled to begin Dec. 13, 2010. At the time, he told Peace Arch News he accidentally downloaded child porn while visiting adult-pornography websites, and that he was pleading guilty on the advice of his lawyer, who at the time was Gordon Welock. A sentencing hearing set at that time was postponed after Bowers objected to a pre-sentence report that said he deliberately downloaded the illegal porn. He applied to withdraw his guilty plea March 21, and the application was scheduled to be heard April 30. Monday, Hicks asked Bowers to confirm his intent to proceed to sentencing. “You’re not pursuing that application… and the guilty plea stands,” the judge said said. Bowers responded, “Correct” to each statement.

Landlord plans to demolish house from page 1 Eyewitnesses, who spoke to Peace Arch News on condition of anonymity, said police used a bullhorn to urge the man to reveal himself. â€œGo to the window,â€? one witness heard an officer say, addressing the occupant by his first name. â€œLet us know youâ€™re OK.â€? Around midnight, police entered the house and extracted the man without incident. He is being held for a psychiatric assessment, the police report states. Two other, similar, incidents involving the same man at the same location occurred earlier on April 10 and April 14. On April 10, the man suffered

A development proposal sign at the scene says an application has been made to divide the 1,233-square-metre lot in two. Developer Daljit Gill said he is going to demolish the house. â€œIâ€™m going to go there and put plywood on the windows,â€? Gill told PAN. Gill said he wanted to discuss the incident with the tenant, but was unable to reach the man as of Monday.

‘Friend’ charged in murder A 23-year-old Surrey woman has been charged with seconddegree murder in the killing of a Burnaby woman who was found dead in Whalley last Thursday. Jessica Ashley Hanley appeared in Surrey Provincial Court Monday. The victim – identified as 23-year-old Tashina Rae Sutherland – was pronounced dead at the scene in the 10600block of 138 Street at about 5 p.m. “We understand they’ve been friends for a while,” Surrey RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Barb Creighton said. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team was called to the scene, but police said the killing does not appear linked to gangs. Hanley has no prior criminal record. Officers are releasing no details about what happened. “Investigators have yet to determine a motive but believe the victim and the suspect know each other,” Sgt. Jennifer Pound said in a news release. An autopsy was scheduled for Monday, after Peace Arch News press deadline.

Caitlin Langridge, community development co-ordinator for the Multiple Sclerosis Society, described the turnout as “pretty decent” compared to previous years. “We’re missing a couple of people, but our turnout has been good and our fundraising is up this year, so we’re happy,” Langridge told Peace Arch News. The event raised $32,000. There were 22 fundraising teams among the participants. Volunteers included clowns “Mr. Bubbles” and “Lollipop,” who kept the children entertained by making balloon animals and blowing giant-size soap bubbles, while the adults were treated to the only live music at any of the Multiple Sclerosis Walk venues in the Lower Mainland, courtesy of the

Free enterprise not the problem
s the B.C. electorate truly drifting to the left? The results of two byelections last month might seem to indicate a rise in support for the NDP. It’s just as likely to be a symptom of resistance to the right-of-centre options offered in the province today. It’s no secret the public is disenchanted with the BC Liberal brand. And it’s no secret to BC Liberals – where once the party name alone was deemed a sufficient selling point, they have been falling over themselves to remind us that they are, in fact, “a free-enterprise coalition.” This weekend’s departure of party executive director Chad Peterson and director of communications Jehnifer Benoit to pursue opportunities in the private sector – no matter how vociferous their parting good wishes – can only be viewed by a jaundiced public as further symptoms of the BC Liberals’ slide. While John Cummins’ BC Conservatives gained more points than either the Liberals or the NDP in Chilliwack and Port MoodyCoquitlam, there are many who suspect the more extreme right-wing elements of the party, just as there are those who fear electing the NDP will signal a return to doctrinaire socialism. Fact is, the B.C. electorate is angry – angry as much as anything else with a lack of leadership choices. At this point they are seeking only government targets, and in this regard, unfortunately, they have been provided with an elaborate menu of options, in spite of best efforts of PR consultants and media apologists to keep the lid on a rangeful of bubbling tureens. Policy advisors should recognize that when the public blood boils, it’s not a time to expect calm or rational decision-making. Lecturing, or hectoring, the electorate will likely only raise the temperature in the kitchen. It’s not just a B.C. problem. The ‘Occupy’ movement achieved traction internationally because of the unpunished excesses of a group of economic looters. Avarice – and corporate and governmental double-speak – has led to a climate of suspicion surrounding all freeenterprise capitalism, a climate that must be overcome by responsible leadership. Many still recognize that soundly-based business success is crucial to the economy, the only sure source of jobs, a proper living wage, and the money to adequately fund muchneeded social programs. It is likely that many British Columbians still support free enterprise. It’s just free-for-all enterprise they have a problem with.

district, to provide enough longterm supply for reconstruction of the destroyed Burns Lake sawmill. There is also the prospect of awarding unassigned timber to “a single representative of the six First Nations in the Lakes TSA.” Speaking to forest scientists who work in B.C., a couple of things become clear. This pine beetle epidemic may be the largest on record, but it is far from the first. And despite many assertions by former premier Gordon Campbell, it is not certain if this one is the result of a broader climate trend or just a string of warmer winters after decades of fire suppression kept older stands around. Lodgepole pine forests are firepropagated. The term “old growth” has little meaning in a cycle of natural fires that doesn’t occur in wetter zones. But none of this will matter much in the urban political debate that is about to ensue. “Old growth” is now a quasi-religious notion. International environmental groups have convinced most people that logging is the primary cause of forest loss. In fact, the UN’s “State of the World’s Forests” reports have shown that 95 per cent of global forest loss is due to agriculture. Forest cover is increasing in industrialized countries, which use farmland more efficiently. The BC Liberal government needs to make some tough decisions quickly, before next year’s election. The premier’s vow to “create and defend” jobs is about to be tested like never before.

Limited options to fight pipeline Editor: Oilsands-projects proponent Stephen Harper and company know that they’ll almost certainly have the last say on Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline megaproject to Kitimat and Kinder Morgan’s pipeline expansion to Burnaby. Thus, what realistically can be done by concerned, eco-conscious protesters – along with determined aboriginal nations who have much to lose environmentally in the matter and refuse to be bought out – dead against these eco-unfriendly oilsands projects spreading throughout much of pristine B.C.? Fight through the courts? Likely limited success, particularly with the federal Tory cabinet spewing out legislation en masse to insidiously evade any obstacle to Alberta’s Big Oil bucks via B.C.’s north and south coast. Apparently the plausible, progressive option is passiveresistance obstruction to such pipeline construction on B.C. territory. Frank G. Sterle, Jr., White Rock
Chain right on a major earthquake fault line. (Editor’s note: Fletcher corrected the information the following week.) Port Alberni had been devastated a few years earlier by a tsunami originating in that area, and B.C. residents feared the underground nuclear tests could trigger another earthquake and tsunami. Following a successful fundraising rally by a group called the Don’t Make A Wave Committee, an old fishing boat, the Phyllis Cormack, was chartered and, later joined by the larger Edgewater Fortune, set off for Amchitka Island to try to stop the test. They didn’t get to Amchitck, and the test went ahead, but the international publicity generated by the protest boats forced the U.S. to cancel of the rest of the test series, and the rag-tag collection of protestors morphed into Greenpeace, taking their name from the slogan on a button they issued as a fundraiser. Well, enough of the history lesson, Tom. Back to your usual routine of falsely claiming that the B.C. economy grew faster under the BC Liberals than under the NDP. Have you ever checked the Statistics Canada website? Terry Lawrence, Surrey
Our vulnerable need your help Editor: It is time for the people of British Columbia to lend their voices on how our most vulnerable women can be made safer. Along with the Missing Women Commission of Inquiry hearings, we are set to hold a series of six important public-policy forums as a component of the Missing Women Commission of Inquiry Study Commission. These forums will be held in downtown Vancouver from May 1-10 and will focus on how to improve the safety and security of vulnerable women. More information can be found by going to the commission’s website at www.missingwomeninquiry.ca The public-policy forums need the input, feedback and ideas of the people of British Columbia. While the information gathered in these forums is not considered evidence relevant to the testimony put forward in the hearings, your input will provide me with proposals for change and related contextual information that will help to inform
the writing of my report. We need to hear from you – as mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles and friends. We need to hear from you as a person, as a fellow human being, as someone who cares about improving the safety and security of vulnerable women who are still at risk today. We need you to tell us what you feel needs to be addressed, improved upon and changed – so a report can be produced that has practical, effective recommendations that can be implemented in the real world that we live in. While space is limited at the forums in Vancouver, there are many additional ways to participate. The forums will be live streamed via our website at www. missingwomeninquiry.ca You can provide your feedback via email at participate@ missingwomeninquiry.ca or send a letter to us at #1402 – 808 Nelson St., Vancouver, BC, V6Z 2H2. We are asking the good people of British Columbia to stand up and tell us what you believe needs to be done to help save the lives of vulnerable women at extreme risk.

History lesson for columnist Editor: Re: Environmentalism for dummies, April 17. I see your resident propaganda writer, columnist Tom Fletcher, has taken time out from his usual job of attacking hospital workers, teachers, and anybody to the left of Attila the Hun to falsify the history of events that led to the foundation of Greenpeace. With long-lived toxic nuclear testing byproducts like Strontium 90 building up from atmospheric tests, the U.S., U.S.S.R. and U.K. signed a Limited Test Ban Treaty in 1963 that banned atmospheric, space, and oceanic tests, but at the insistence of the U.S. and U.K., left the door open on underground testing. In 1971, under Richard Nixon, the U.S. – not the U.S.S.R., as Fletcher falsely claims – decided to carry out a series of underground tests on Amchitka Island in the Aleutian

Quality daycare is out of reach for most because five per cent of our population control politics, writes S. Teasdale.
Four-year cycle stymies growth Editor: Re: Parents need more help: board of trade, April 17. It was with great interest that I read this article, because I did work in daycare, many years ago. I feel I understand the devastating and humiliating situation that parents find themselves in when looking for quality, cost-effective daycare. I am new to White Rock and enjoy reading your newspaper. I worked in an inner-city Ottawa daycare, from 1975-’78, with single parents and immigrant families. Then-prime minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau said one of his goals was to bring into effect a national daycare program similar to that described by the Surrey Board of Trade in your article. Years later, another Liberal prime minister, Paul Martin, had the same goals. So, in essence, these dreams have been in the works for more than 40 years. What has stood in our way? Conservative governments don’t philosophically believe in subsidized daycare. The Liberals and the NDP believe in it, but the main goal of politicians is to get in and stay in power. They make promises, then backslide to stay in for another term. It is the game of politics, and the fickle, lethargic, apathetic, sometimes-misinformed public play an important part in this short-sighted political ‘game.’ The Conservatives sometimes call the Liberals and NDP “socialists.” If we want quality, affordable daycare, we will have to be more “socially inclined,” less greedy
and more generous with those who are disadvantaged. Unfortunately the “fruits of the crop” – or results of standardized daycare – would not come to fruition for 20 years. We would probably have happy, motivated, employable and well-adjusted young adults ready to enter the work force. But “they,” unfortunately, don’t grow in the allotted four-year political time frame. This dream of daycare for all may never happen because, presently, the rich portion of our society – the top five per cent of our population – can easily afford private nannies. These upper-middle-class and wealthy, sometimes articulate and well-connected individuals and corporations control politics. The other 95 per cent are sometimes apathetic and don’t always have the language skills, confidence and/or political clout. We may not have the energy – too busy working frontline while juggling children’s needs – to change things. So, if we want quality and affordable daycare, we need to: collectively work very hard to rise up; become more aware of politicians and their actions; vote municipally, provincially and federally; and get involved. Otherwise, all this talk is merely dust in the wind. In the words of R.K. Grace’s letter to the editor (Our apathy is beyond reason, April 19), we need to step up to the plate and be more involved/active in the democratic process. S. Teasdale, White Rock

A new billboard on Highway 99 encourages motorists to visit White Rock.
Sign to lure visitors Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter
Big, bright and built to endure whatever Mother Nature throws at it, White Rock’s newest advertising tactic now greets motorists heading north on Highway 99 from the Douglas (Peace Arch) border. Unveiled Wednesday, the 10-footby-40-foot billboard is to remain in place on Semiahmoo First Nation land for a year, with organizers hoping it will encourage visitors crossing into Canada to take the first exit off the highway and spend some time in the seaside city. An initiative of the White Rock Business Improvement Association and Tourism White Rock, the billboard features photography donated by White Rock resident Tim Shields – who is an RCMP officer in Burnaby – and promotes InWhiteRock.com Three years in the making, it is hoped to catch the eye of an estimated three million northbound travellers expected to cross into Canada this year.
On Friday, Shields, Mayor Wayne Baldwin and representatives from the BIA and Tourism White Rock checked out the finished product. “It’s the first thing you see,” commented Shields, as the group ventured across the highway to take a closer look at the billboard. The featured image was captured while standing in the waters, looking towards the shore, he said. BIA executive director Sherri Wilson Morissette said early response to the billboard has been positive. The image, displayed on a durable vinyl wrap, will be changed after six months to keep things fresh for passing motorists. The next image is yet to be determined. City council voted earlier this month to share the $42,560 cost of leasing the billboard for a year, on the condition its effectiveness be monitored. Wilson Morissette said Friday that will be tracked through methods including online and spot surveys; as well, through surveys of hotel and bed-and-breakfast visitors.

If there’s a matter of environmental importance in this city, you’ll find her there. She may be tucked in a corner, scribbling notes about a meeting, or leading a presentation herself. The fact is, Deb Jack has been a leading powerhouse pressing for protection of Surrey’s environment for years, and for that, she was named the city’s Good Citizen of the Year last Wednesday evening. Those who know Jack well say she’s a tireless worker who refuses to give up on issues she sees as important. “If there’s any issue in the City of Surrey that involves environmental protection, Deb Jack is there,” said John Werring, a fisheries biologist with the David Suzuki Foundation. “God bless her for all that she does. “Seriously, she raises awareness and keeps issues on the front burner, and she forces council to act,” Werring added. “We need more people like her.” When she appears before city council, Jack will have researched the issue extensively, making counter arguments next to impossible, according to friend and environmental advocate Darlene Bowyer.

news De Patie’s killer to be released
‘They just find new forgiveness for him’ Robert Mangelsdorf Black Press
The young man who ran over and dragged a Maple Ridge gas station attendant to death will be out of prison this week, despite twice violating parole conditions on previous releases. Darnell Darcy Pratt leaves the maximumsecurity Kent Institution in Agassiz six months after breaching curfew late last year. Pratt was just 16 in March 2005, when he
struck and killed 24-year-old gas station attendant Grant De Patie in a stolen car while fleeing an Esso station in Maple Ridge without paying for gas. “They just find new forgiveness for him,” said De Patie’s father, Doug, a Surrey resident, upon learning of Pratt’s release. “He doesn’t have to earn a single thing to earn his way to freedom. He is forced upon us regardless of his condition.” By law, most federal inmates are auto-

perspectives …on the Semiahmoo Peninsula
Karlene Loudon will try to connect with teens and young adults in her new role as liaison
Working in support of Revelstoke youth Alex Cooper
he Canadian government defines youth as someone between the ages of 15 and 30, so it is fitting that the person hired as Revelstoke’s youth liaison is still only 28 years old. “I have lots of experience working with youth,” said Karlene Loudon, who spent her formative years in White Rock. “I think Revelstoke is a pretty spectacular community and it being small, it has a lot of opportunity for youth engagement and for youth to be a big part of designing their own future here and what they want the community to look like.” Loudon has been hired to implement Revelstoke’s Youth Action Plan and take on the not-so-easy task of working with youth in all sorts of matters ranging from civic engagement to entertainment to employment. Fortunately for her, her job description narrows the age range down to 12-19. The action plan was put together by Mike Brown and Megan Shandro, in conjunction with Revelstoke’s Youth Initiative Committee (YIC). The youth liaison position was one of the recommendations to come from the plan and funding was obtained from the Columbia Basin Trust to pay for the position. Loudon said one of her first goals will be to establish a hub for youth in Revelstoke – located 200 kilometres east of Kamloops – where they can get information about different opportunities available. “I would say that is pretty primary because it’s not about re-inventing the wheel, it’s about utilizing what we have as a community and using youth involvements and opinions to better it.” In conversation with Loudon, ‘opportunities’ is a word that comes up frequently – spreading awareness of and expanding existing ones and creating new

With her new job, Karlene Loudon, who grew up in White Rock, has taken on the task of engaging with Revelstoke’s young people. ones. She brought up examples like creating a youth category of the recent Revelstoke photo showdown, or a youth film fest, bike rides and other activities. “We’re just formulating ideas right now of what events and what programming we’re going to get up and running and I’m very open with people contacting me with their ideas,” she said. A part of her job will be to bring in funding for different projects, and she said one that was in the
works was to hire someone on contract to work on employmentrelated issues. After being raised in White Rock, Loudon attended Thompson Rivers University where she graduated with a degree in adventure tourism and entrepreneurship. She arrived in Revelstoke three years ago to work for Selkirk-Tangiers Heliskiing and for the many outdoor opportunities. She also works for an environmental consulting
company and does contract work at Okanagan College. “As a youth – and I consider myself still a youth, I’m just in a different phase of it – I was very engaged in competitive sports, art, sales of arts, and adventure recreation as well,” she said. “I feel very fortunate that I had those opportunities and know that not everybody does.” When asked what she felt was the biggest advantage Revelstoke possessed when it came to

supporting youth, she said it was the strong sense of belonging youth felt for the community – 87 per cent according to the survey conducted during work on the YAP. “That’s huge. People are proud to be here and proud of their community. People want to stay here and want to be involved and engaged. I think that’s the biggest strength this community has.

PAINTING STARTING AT
Police team recognized Black Press
A team of Mounties – named after a child who was killed by a woman convicted of impaired driving – helped remove almost 13,000 drunk drivers from B.C. roads last year. Formed four years ago, Alexa’s Team was named after South Surrey student Alexa Middelaer, 4½, who was struck at the side of the road in east Ladner while feeding a horse with her aunt. Last year, Carol Berner was sentenced to 2½ years in prison with a five-year driving prohibition in connection with the tragedy. She appealed the conviction and sentence and a decision is pending.
Alexa Middelaer died in 2008. Shortly after the 2008 crash, Alexa’s Team was formed. It has grown from 26 officers to 355, who removed 12,923 impaired drivers from the road in 2011. Last week, BCAA and ICBC honoured 10 officers from Surrey and one from White Rock in recognition of their diligence in
tackling drunk driving. To be nominated for Alexa’s Team, police officers must be credited with having removed at least 12 impaired drivers from the road in the previous calendar year. The Surrey officers honoured – for removing a combined 333 impaired drivers from the city’s roads last year – include: Consts. Raymond Lee (all-star), Joe McGhee, Jamie Raison, David Toews, Tom Meleady, Chris Waterhouse, Jose Oliveira, Cory Kornicki and Cpls. Bryan Fedirchuk and Kurt Rosenberg. White Rock Const. David Bickle was named to the team, for removing 31 impaired drivers in 2011.

The Mikado Tickets are available now for the Fraser Valley Gilbert & Sullivan Society’s 30th anniversary production, The Mikado, running May 9-19 at a new venue, White Rock’s Coast Capital Playhouse, 1532 Johnston Rd. One of B.C.’s most recognized tenors, Mark Donnelly – well-known as ‘Mr O Canada’ for his anthem singing at Canucks games – trades his microphone for a kimono as he plays the title role of the imperious Mikado of Japan to his own son Sean’s performance as “wandering minstrel” Nanki-Poo. A strong cast of popular G&S players includes James Walker as Ko-Ko, the Mikado’s Lord High Executioner; Adam Olgui as the pompous Pooh-Bah; Rebekkah MacEwan as Yum-Yum, Tamara Wilhelm as Pitti-Sing, Samantha Andrews as Peep-Bo and mezzo Jacquollyne Keath as Nanki-Poo’s “slightly bloodthirsty” would-be fiancé, Katisha. Produced by Kate Bethell (director of the recent White Rock Players Club pantomime Robinson Crusoe), the show’s artistic director is well-known actor/musician Dann Wilhelm, while music direction is by Herbert Tsang and choreography by the ever-creative and reliable Carol Seitz. Evening performances are Wednesday to Sunday at 8 p.m. with a 2:30 p.m. matinee May 13. To reserve tickets, call 604-536-7535, or visit www.whiterockplayers.ca

Surrey crabber fined $5,500 in Port Hardy what’s A commercial crab harvester from Surrey was fined $5,500 in Port Hardy Provincial Court after being found guilty of numerous violations of the Fisheries Act. Phong Thanh Do appeared in court Feb. 16 facing three counts of failing to comply with the conditions of his commercial fish-
ing licence. He was found guilty of 22 violations including: using commercial crab traps that lacked the required identification tags, using treated rot cord and using two traps with undersized escape rings. He was ordered to pay $250 for each violation, and fishing gear was forfeited.
The charges stem from a 2011 incident, when Fisheries and Oceans Canada officers patrolling the area near Port Elizabeth, off northern Vancouver Island, inspected a commercial crab vessel operated by Do. Do’s conviction marks the first successful prosecution of a trap tag violation.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula
Fans of the Earl Marriott Mariners (left) and Semiahmoo Totems (right) will be out in full force at South Surrey Athletic Park Tuesday afternoon, cheering on their respective schools at the Sandcastle Cup. The annual senior boys rugby grudge match has been won the last three years by the Mariners.
Senior boys from Earl Marriott and Semiahmoo to square off in rugby grudge match
Rivalries renewed at Sandcastle Cup Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter
Crosstown rugby rivalries are set to be renewed today when the Sandcastle Cup hits the pitch at South Surrey Athletic Park. The annual senior boys rugby grudge match pits the defending champion Earl Marriott Mariners against the Semiahmoo Totems, who owned the trophy for nearly two decades before the Mariners finally ended the streak in 2009. Earl Marriott has had a stranglehold of the trophy since then, winning three straight – including a 28-0 shutout win last year – and the Mariners are again one of the province’s best AAA senior boys sides. They were ranked fifth in B.C. heading into a Friday contest against No. 2 Oak Bay. But despite the team’s recent success, Marriott head coach Adam

be very competitive,” he said. Regardless of the outcome of Tuesday’s game, which is also a Fraser Valley league contest, Roberts knows the game will be an exciting one, as fans from both schools traditionally come out in droves, lining the slope west of the rugby pitch with painted faces and school-coloured flags. And it’s often been a little rowdy. In recent years, students – sometimes wearing team-coloured capes and little else – have streaked the field, and in 2010, with an estimated 1,000 fans in attendance, fans threw plastic water bottles and other projectiles at each other, which resulted in a number of fights, a few of which had to be broken up by RCMP members in attendance. But those instances aside, Roberts said the usual atmosphere
makes it fun for the players and coaches, alike. “I don’t know what it is about the Sandcastle Cup that gets everybody so pumped up – even students who don’t care about rugby – but I love it. It’s unbelievable,” he said. “ “The whole school – both schools – get behind it, and it’s fun to be a part of. I wish more of our sports were like this.” Kiselbach agreed, and suggested the raucous atmosphere might be a benefit to his squad, considering they’re playing on their home field. “You want to put on a good show for all your fans that show up,” he said. “It makes you want to hit that much harder, and play that much better.” The game begins at 4:15 p.m.

a Parksville error – which also allowed Temple, who was at bat, to reach first base. One batter later, Temple came around to score on another error. A sixth-inning single from Shay Buis, which cashed in Lamont, extended the lead. Koltai earned the win on the mound, striking out six batters and allowing just three hits in six innings of work. In the nightcap, White Rock’s pitching was again sturdy, as Adam Shumka improved his record to 3-1, going the distance in the team’s 7-5 win. Shumka struck out nine, and allowed nine hits and five runs. And though the five runs were the most Shumka has given up this season, he was backed by an offence that smacked five doubles off the Royals’ pitching tandem of Calvin Sandhu and Nic Annau. Douglas went 3-for-4 at the plate, improving his team-best batting average to .314. The Tritons are back on the road for four games this weekend. They play a doubleheader Saturday against the North Shore Twins, and Sunday travel to Victoria for games against the Mariners. Through the first month of the season, White Rock has played just twice at home. A home game against Abbotsford, slated for last Wednesday at South Surrey Athletic Park was rained out.

Biking, golf provincials axed Black Press
Cyclists and golfers are out of luck, but most other high school athletes looking to compete in provincial championships late next month should be able to do so. B.C. championships in eight spring season sports were put into question last week when 73 per cent of the voting membership of the B.C. Teachers’ Federation cast their ballot in favour of withdrawing involvement in extra-curricular activities. The action is to protest the government’s proposed Education Improvement Act, which imposes a settlement on public school teachers. Teachers withdrawing their services as coaches or sport administrators has led to the cancellation of mountain biking and golf provincial championships. But B.C. School Sports executive director Sue Keenan said most other sports are a go. “Girls soccer, rugby, tennis and badminton are on,” she said last week. “The entire provincial experience might not be the same without banquets and (souvenir) clothing. But the commissions are doing the best they can.” Mountain biking provincials were to take place in North Vancouver May 23, while golf championships were also slated for the end of March. The cancellation of golf hits Earl Marriott Secondary particularly hard – co-coach Michael Mackay-Dunn said Thursday his team was “probably the best in the province.”
Track and field provincials are still on schedule, but others have been cancelled. Late last month, the EMS squad won the Delta Police tournament, and a few days after that, won the Surrey Championships by 11 strokes. Semiahmoo finished second and Lord Tweedsmuir placed third. “It was a really successful season for us,” said EMS co-coach Mark Figueira, adding that the decision by the high school golf commission to cancel provincials was “a tough one, but one that had to be made. “A number of teams had dropped out, so there wasn’t much anybody could do.” One of the largest sports by participation is track and field, and a decision has not yet been made on whether they will proceed.
“Everyone is asking about track and field, but we won’t know until (this week),” said Keenan. “It’s an event that includes thousands of athletes, so the (track and field) commission is doing their due diligence. They want to make sure there’s enough kids able to compete.” Much of the high school track and field season has already been wiped out, but the May 15-17 Fraser Valley Championships are on. It was announced earlier this week the meet – which qualifies athletes for the B.C. Championships June 1-2 at Swangard Stadium in Burnaby – will take place in Langley. Also canceled this year are three qualifying events leading up to the Valley meet, including Surrey Championships, which were to be held this week at South Surrey Athletic Park, North Surrey Secondary and Bear Creek Park. Girls soccer is going ahead, although four teams have withdrawn from the Fraser Valley West Senior AAA zone due to the job action. As a result, the season has ended for players on the Guildford Park Sabres, Kwantlen Park Timbervolves, Frank Hurt Hornets and Johnston Heights Eagles. As with most sports, more volunteers will be needed to replace the teachers unable to assist with tournaments. “We’re getting great support from many parents who are stepping up,” Keenan said. “We have to mention that.” Keenan advises athletes, parents, community coaches and anyone else seeking information to go to the BCSS website at www.bcschoolsports.ca.
