Criminal underworld represented among mourners at South Surrey service, as officers ensure safety

Two sides out in force at Gisby funeral Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

A number of gangsters were among the more than 70 mourners who attended the funeral for alleged crime boss Thomas Gisby in South Surrey Friday morning, a police spokesman said. “Several people that were well-known to us in the criminal underworld were present to pay their respects to Mr. Gisby,” Surrey RCMP

Sgt. Drew Grainger told Peace Arch News. The 47-year-old Gisby – described by police as a “high-ranking organized-crime figure” – was shot and killed in a Starbucks coffee shop in the Mexican resort city of Nuevo Vallarta on April 28. Members of the Surrey Gang Enforcement Team, along with members of the B.C. Integrated Gang Task Force, made a point of being seen outside Victory Memorial Park at

148 Street and 28 Avenue, where the funeral was held. “We often will have a robust police presence to ensure the safety of mourners and the public,” Grainger said. Police officers took photographs and recorded licence-plate numbers to update their information about suspected gang members. An online obituary for Gisby made no

direct reference to his murder, saying, “Tommy left us unexpectedly on April 28, 2012 and leaves a hole in our hearts that can never be filled.” The memorial message describes Gisby as a “kind and generous spirit” with an “infectious smile and beautiful twinkling brown eyes” who loved to play golf and poker, go snowmobiling and ride his Harley.  see page 2

Purple may be the official school colour of Elgin Park Secondary, but on Friday, many students, teachers and alumni eschewed the traditional tone for green and yellow instead. The switch was made in honour of longtime teacher and rugby coach Johan Mynhardt, who recently announced to colleagues and students that he is battling prostate cancer. Green and yellow are the official colours of the flag of South Africa, where Mynhardt is from. And on Friday, hundreds – many wearing

More riot charges Jeff Nagel Black Press

Six more accused rioters – three of them from Surrey, Richmond and North Vancouver – are now charged with crimes related to the Stanley Cup riot in Vancouver last June. Charges of participating in a riot have been laid against 19-year-old Surrey resident Brandon Foster, 20-year-old Richmond resident Jeffery Xiao, 19-year-old North Vancouver resident Julian Eiers, 22-year-old Vancouver resident Sage Laboucan, 33-year-old Vancouver resident Robert Olson and 20-year-old Vancouver resident

Dakota Schlag. Foster also faces charges of break and enter and possession of stolen property. Xiao, Eiers and Olson are also charged with break and enter, while Schlag is also charged with mischief. Prosecutors have now charged a total of 91 people with riot-related offences. Damage to property on the night of the riot, which saw vehicles flipped and burned and window fronts smashed, is estimated at $3 million. Investigators have so far recommended nearly 600 charges against 200 suspected rioters.

news Judge jails father for 30 more months, citing ‘risk of future violence’

Child abductor ‘not ready to be released’ Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Benjamin James McBeath choked his wife into unconsciousness after she discovered him hiding in her bedroom less than two months after the pair had separated. The “submission hold” was used on his wife three times over the course of that evening last Sept. 27, before McBeath left her semi-conscious in a South Surrey driveway and abducted his three-year-old son. He was arrested that night en route to turn himself in to Surrey RCMP, after his lawyer talked him out of committing suicide. But despite remorse that has been expressed since, the degree of violence against his spouse – along with other aggressive behaviour noted over the course of a sentencing hearing – can’t be ignored, Judge James Bahen said Friday afternoon in Surrey Provincial Court.

“They provide strong inferences of a risk of future violence,” Bahen said. McBeath, 35, has been in custody since his arrest. Friday, Bahen ruled the Correctional Service Canada employee would remain in jail for another 30 months. The sentence includes three concurrent three-year terms, one for each offence committed Sept. 27 – abduction of a child under 16, assault causing bodily harm and being unlawfully in a dwelling house – and two months in connection with an Aug. 31 assault on his wife, File photo minus eight months for time served. Police recover three-year-old last fall. While defence lawyer Mark Rowan had argued that time served followed by proba- nity until there has been an effort to reduce tion was a fair sentence, particularly given the risk he poses,” he said. his client’s efforts while in custody to address In his reasons for sentence, Bahen noted substance-abuse issues and improve himself, McBeath didn’t plan the Sept. 27 assault of Bahen found a firmer message was needed. his wife and abduction of his son. At the “He cannot be released into the commu- time, McBeath was using cocaine and hadn’t

slept for about four days. He had booked an emergency appointment with a family assistance counsellor for the following day. At the same time, the assaults took place in the presence of his son and “posed an extreme risk of catastrophic injury or death to the victim,” Bahen said. Bahen also took McBeath’s unique circumstances as an aboriginal into account, noting McBeath was adopted as an infant by a Caucasian couple, and believed from the time he was 15 years old until just recently that his birth was the result of a rape. Prosecutor Brian Shaw had asked for a sentence of more than two years. Outside court, Rowan note, “It’s unusual for a judge to impose a sentence that is considerably longer than what Crown is asking for. “The judge made some mistakes in some of the evidence that was considered.”

Falcon sets date

Return to PST Tom Fletcher Black Press

The B.C. government has tabled its long-awaited legislation to kill the harmonized sales tax and return to the old provincial sales tax, with some modernization to make it easier for small businesses to administer and pay the tax. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon said Monday that the PST will return as scheduled in April 2013, with exemptions for haircuts, restaurant meals, bicycles, movie tickets, gym memberships and all the other rules it had before. Falcon, MLA for Surrey-Cloverdale, said the only sales tax breaks that won’t return are temporary exemptions that would have expired by now, including energyconserving windows and appliances, and fuel-efficient cars. Tax changes that were made along with the HST will be maintained. That includes a 12-per-cent provincial tax on privately sold used cars, making the tax equal to that paid at a car dealership. Provincial tobacco taxes were increased seven per cent when the HST came in; that tax will continue. Liquor taxes will be adjusted to keep prices the same. NDP finance critic Bruce Ralston said the legislation tabled Monday is relatively simple, with regulations listing the many rules and exemptions still to come this fall so businesses can prepare for next spring. “I think they could have done it faster and they should have done it faster,” Ralston said. Falcon noted an independent panel found the end of the HST will mean $520 million less revenue for the B.C. treasury next year, $645 million less the following year and increasing lost revenue after that. “Clearly, any government in the future is going to have less revenue available to it,” Falcon said. “And obviously, we’re going to have to manage the challenge of bringing back a tax that is less efficient and conducive to economic development.”

Charges follow attacks on sex-trade workers

Alert issued after Surrey man released Wanda Chow Black Press

Burnaby RCMP issued a warning last week after a man charged with several sexual assaults was released from custody while he awaits trial. Shalendra Kumar Sharma, 43, of Surrey, has been charged with four counts of sexually assaulting four women, two in December 2011 and the others in 1994 and 1997. He is also charged with four counts of confining the women and one count of kidnapping. In addition, Sharma is charged with two counts of assault and one count of uttering threats in connection with the two December incidents. He was arrested Feb. 17. In February, Burnaby RCMP announced the arrest and charges and asked additional victims and witnesses to come forward.

$3-million donation from Hassells  from page 1 With his parents and six siblings, he moved onto property on North Bluff Road (now l6 Avenue) in l936, after the Sumas Prairie flood the year earlier wiped out the family farm. He and brothers Reg, Lawrence and Dick cleared the land with a horse, cart and scraper blade, selling and delivering the wood for $4.50 per cord. In 1937, he and Reg used the same method to open North Bluff Road from the planned King George Highway (now King George Boulevard) west to their property. Later, they purchased an early-model tracked tractor to push the road through to Stayte Road and, in the early l940s, the two Hassells got the contract from Surrey to open North Bluff from Stayte to Johnston, then later through to Ocean Park. Shortly after the Second World War, they were joined by their brothers to form Hassell Bros. Bulldozing Contractors. The new company was part of early road and subdivision development in White Rock and Surrey, clearing land on the east-end hillside. Later, they took on major projects, including the Lake City Industrial Park in Burnaby, runway preparation for Comox airport and the then-large Riverside residential development in Surrey. In 1946, Bob married Florence Lapierre, whose grandparents had settled in the Hazelmere area in 1907. They remained lifelong partners in business, recreation and community service.

1968 file photo

Bob Hassell with W.O. Banfield. Only a few years after his first hospital excavation project, Hassell returned to play a much more dramatic role in the next chapter of hospital expansion. By 1958, the hospital was running at 100 per cent occupancy. The next few years saw services strained to the limit. After five years of further planning and negotiations, the board received word that Victoria had given approval in principle for a new hospital of 100 beds, in the first stage, and from 200 to 250 beds in the future. Leading the battle to complete the promised facility was Hassell, who headed the building committee before serving several terms as board chairman. His tough business style, his ability to cut through bureaucratic red tape and his disdain for government delay tactics earned him the goodnatured title of “board emperor.” When Surrey council blew cool on a 1966 hospital request to sell municipal bonds to help

finance the latest building project – mainly because the hospital carried a White Rock name – Hassell got immediate approval to change its name to Peace Arch District Hospital “to better reflect the areas served by the facility.” After a series of tough, closed-door negotiations and a sod-turning ceremony in open defiance of a provincial stopwork order, Hassell was able to push through the facility in a form very close to what was originally planned. The sixstorey, 108-bed acute facility, costing some $3.5 million, officially opened in July 1968. Despite his no-nonsense public image, Hassell was private about his business and personal achievements, avoiding accolades and public appearances. The Hassell family continued to support the hospital over the years and, in 2007, Bob and Florence Hassell donated $3 million to the Partners in Caring Campaign, the largest single gift ever made to the foundation. The acute-care tower was named in their honor in 2008. Hassell served as honorary chair of the partners campaign, which so far has raised $24 million to finance five major projects, four of which have now been completed. In 2009, the Hassells were recipients of the Giving Hearts Award sponsored by the Association of Fundraising Professionals for outstanding philanthropy. The Hassell family has asked that donations in his memory be made to the hospital foundation.

Gala raises $165,000 for ER

Officer resigns Const. Jeff Klassen, a New Westminster Police Department officer who was convicted in the drunken beating of a Surrey newspaper delivery man in downtown Vancouver three years ago, has resigned. Klassen and two other off-duty officers from other police departments were arrested by Vancouver police in the early hours of Jan. 21, 2009 following an altercation with Surrey’s Firoz Khan outside of the Hyatt Hotel. Klassen was suspended by thenChief Const. Lorne Zapotichny. Klassen was found guilty of assault in 2011. He was handed a 21-day conditional sentence. Under the Police Act, the police department must finish its investigation and report its findings and recommendations to the police complaint commissioner. “What the NWPD can confirm is that the decision on resignation was made by Mr. Klassen and no financial incentive or package was offered or given to him by the NWPD in return for his resignation,” said a police statement.

South Surrey and White Rock movers and shakers were out in force – and Centennial Arena was transformed into an elegant ballroom – for the 23rd annual Partners in Caring Gala, May 12. The event succeeded in raising more than $165,000 (net) to help fund Peace Arch Hospital’s ER. Last year the ER accommodated 40,000 visits in a space designed for 20,000. Annual visits are projected to rise to 60,000 by 2030. It’s the fifth specific target for funding that has been helped by the gala, following new acutecare space, an MRI, a new maternity ward and White Rock’s Centre For Active Living. The primary fund-raising event organized by Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation, the gala has raised more than $2.4 million since it was established in 1990. More than 500 business, healthcare and philanthropy leaders dined and danced at this year’s event, which received sponsorship and auction support from numerous individuals and businesses – including title sponsor National Bank Financial. Meterologist Mark Madryga was MC, with musical entertainment provided by Tom Arntzen and his Band and catering by Vancouver’s Four Seasons Hotel.

BC Liberals playing the name game

M

arc Dalton, MLA for Maple RidgeMission, thinks his party, the BC Liberals, should change its name. He says the name – in place since the provincial Liberals formed in 1991 (and the one voters have elected to govern three consecutive terms) – is confusing to some centre-right voters, now that the BC Conservatives have surged to solid thirdparty status. He says those who are federal Conservatives will have a hard time voting BC Liberal next time. Last month, the NDP won two B.C. byelections, in Chilliwack-Hope and Port Moody-Coquitlam. The Liberals came second in both, the Conservatives third. The Liberals fear more vote splitting in the May 2013 provincial election. But changing the party’s name won’t prevent that. Doing so would seem even more confusing to voters, which may be the point. It’s easy to see why the Liberals would want to rebrand the party, distance itself from past scandals and failures, and try to reverse falling popularity. But whatever the Liberals come up with – the BC Alliance Party is being floated about – it’s still the same cast of characters who brought you the B.C. Rail and HST fiascoes. Whether or not Surrey-Cloverdale MLA Kevin Falcon and other cabinet ministers run again isn’t going to change that. And changing the party’s name, to something more progressive, won’t erase the past, or fool many. B.C. doesn’t need a new centre-right party – it already has two. The BC Conservatives beat the Liberals to the punch. Trying to decide between the two is what’s confusing. Are the Liberals about families or business? A tiger can’t change its stripes. Changing the party’s name is just painting over them. As long as the BC Conservatives are around, the right will be split. And that’s what the NDP is counting on.

So far this week you’ve said… yes 50% no 50% 100 responding And no, I’m not talking about the “fast ferries.” The story is detailed in Head On!, a 2004 book by former B.C. deputy highways minister R.G. Harvey. He describes how the Mike Harcourt government completed the “gross error” of building a new terminal at Duke Point, near Nanaimo. This run was to take truck and other traffic from congested Horseshoe Bay to the mid-Island from Tsawwassen. An alternative route from Richmond to Gabriola Island, with bridges to Vancouver Island, had been quietly scuttled after the W.A.C. Bennett government was defeated by the NDP’s Dave Barrett in 1972. On a map, it’s clear this would have been the shortest route. Harvey says it would have cut travel time by half, and likely replaced the congested Horseshoe Bay dock. But Barrett would have had to tell his Nanaimo ferry union supporters that they were losing half their work hours. Tsawwassen to Duke Point is 65 km, compared to 54 km from Horseshoe Bay to Departure Bay. A ferry worker’s shift includes two round trips and loading time. On the Duke Point run this meant at least 8½ hours, “thus ensuring the crew at least one hour at double time daily and often more,” Harvey writes. “Later it became a scheduled overtime route.” Something to keep in mind as Adrian Dix and his crew of union bosses prepare to take the helm.

Douglas traffic gridlocked now Editor: Re: Conference Centre planned for Douglas, April 24. Many residents of the Douglas area are concerned about the additional traffic that will come into this neighbourhood if the proposed hotel conference centre that has been proposed for 4 Avenue and 176 Street is eventually developed. The Douglas area already faces traffic gridlock and lineups due to border traffic congestion, which can, at times, be so severe that we cannot get access to our residences. Consider the Easter weekend just a few weeks ago as an example of our highway systems becoming a parking lot for most of the day. There are only two access points to the Douglas area – on 8 Avenue at 172 Street and 4 Avenue at 176 Street. If these are both blocked with traffic, how can the safety of the residents of this area be maintained for emergency service vehicles to get into the area? There is also no access for the proposed development from 176 Street; the only access is along 175A Street which was built and upgraded two years ago to restrict truck traffic and is a narrow residential street. What will be the traffic flow along this access road after a large conference or event? How will trucks service the hotel, conference centre, banquet facilities and retail spaces proposed? The last traffic study for the Douglas area was prepared in 2007. The study needs to be updated by the City of Surrey to determine the impact this development will have. I urge the city to do a proper traffic analysis before making any decisions. A development of the magnitude contemplated will have a major impact on the traffic patterns in the area and on all the residents of the Douglas area for the use and enjoyment of their property.

I agree that the long trains are a problem for residents, especially in emergency situations, but long trains have been a fact of life for many years here. If you locate in a place that has only one access road – and that is crossed by a railway – there is no rationale in then complaining about the inconvenience the trains cause. Don Crowe, Surrey

Police presence ensured safety first for the protester and public, writes protest organizer Peter Nix.

Together, we can make a stand Editor: Re: 13 fined in train protest, May 8. During the recent coal-train blockade in White Rock, the RCMP acted to enforce the law and protect society while still protecting our stop-coal group’s constitutional right to protest – what a contrast with blood-splattered heads that we see from Russia or the carnage in Syria. From that initial concept of a mutual respect for human rights, negotiations between our group and the police proceeded with discussions about our mutual determination to avoid any violence and to create a minimum of disturbance for the police, the protesters and the public. We made it clear we would not tolerate any violence from “outsiders” and that we would work with the police to ensure the safety of the public. For example, we made a commitment to send out teams to warn people to stay away from the train once it had been stopped. We also expressed our concern to the police that we preferred not to be arrested for “contempt of court” but rather for “trespass.” In the latter case, it may be possible to take our case to the courts and argue the “defence of necessity”; that is, that we stopped the coal train as an act of disobedience for moral reasons – to protect our children’s future lives from destruction by the breakdown of our climate. Canadian society is one of the few places in the world

where a civilized discussion around the issue of human rights can take place with an enforcement arm of the state; in this case, the RCMP. How great is that? As a result of the patience, understanding and respect of the police, we have the possibility that dramatic changes in society can come about peacefully, if the courts and Canadians decide that our cause is worthy. So thank you, RCMP. Peter Nix, Maple Bay Q I completely agree with the stoppage of the coal train to make a point about the huge impact the burning of coal has on the environment. It all starts from the mines in the U.S., where heavy machinery – trucks, trains, ships, and who knows what else – pollutes our air in the whole process. At the same time, we have lost the opportunity of making those products here or even the know how thus putting us even more dependent on other countries. There was also in the paper a mention of a safety issue when the train is stopped. What about the many safety issues when the train is stopped by the many mudslides or the possibility of a major derailment? Remember there are also many dangerous chemicals travelling along this corridor, too. The person who referred to one of the protestors as a blockhead, get a life. Brian Lauder, Surrey

news Stabbing suspect may have acted in self-defense

No charges in teen’s death Sheila Reynolds Black Press

When 18-year-old Jamie Kehoe was stabbed to death on a Surrey bus last year, he was labelled as a Good Samaritan who was killed when he stepped in to stop a couple’s fight. But B.C.’s Criminal Justice Branch says that does not appear to have been the case and that the man who likely stabbed the teen may have been defending himself from a friend of Kehoe’s who was wielding a metal baton. As such, say Crown prosecutors, there is not enough proof to press charges of murder or manslaughter. “While the circumstantial evidence reasonably supports an inference that the suspect was responsible for the stabbing of Mr. Kehoe, the Crown is not able to establish to the criminal standard of proof beyond a reasonable doubt that the suspect was not at the time defending himself,” the Criminal Justice Branch said in a statement last Thursday. The investigation of the Oct. 7, 2011, incident was difficult, says the statement, because information provided by witnesses and those involved in the altercation was often incomplete and contradictory. Prosecutors say Kehoe got on the bus near 134 Street and 72 Avenue just before midnight with three friends after a night of drinking. The suspect and his girlfriend were already on the bus. Witnesses said a young woman with Kehoe called the woman a “bitch” as she got off the bus, prompting her to get back on the bus and hit Kehoe’s friend in the face. What followed remains uncertain, says the Crown, as observers were either not paying attention, didn’t have a good view of the scene or were too intoxicated. “While numerous witnesses were on the bus, none is able to provide a clear account of everything that occurred, or reliably explain exactly how Mr. Kehoe suffered the fatal wound to his neck.” What is clear, say prosecutors, is that a male friend of Kehoe’s pulled out a

engaged with each other or not. While the evidence can reasonably establish who inflicted the wound based on inferences, the Crown is not able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he was not acting in selfdefense,” reads the Criminal Justice Branch statement. “As a result, there is no substantial likelihood of conviction and therefore no charge is approved in relation to Mr. Kehoe’s death.”

Jean Fedak, Kay Waksel and Ruth McLintock blow out their birthday candles.

A party for the ages Sarah Massah Staff Reporter

It was a big day for three longtime volunteers at the Superfluity Shop May 9. Jean Fedak, Kay Waksel and Ruth McLintock celebrated their 89th, 91st and 95th birthdays, respectively, in a joint celebration at the Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary’s thrift store. More than a dozen fellow volunteers gathered around the three women to sing Happy Birthday in the kitchen of the shop, decked out in their red auxiliary shirts. “It’s wonderful to be alive, but even if you weren’t, you wouldn’t know it,” laughed Waksel. After singing and blowing out the candles, the three got an early morning dose of sugar before starting their shifts at the Superfluity Shop with a slice of chocolate cake adorned with

delicate flowers. Collectively, the three women have contributed more than 70 years as volunteers with the shop. And while each has a specific job – whether it’s cash, sorting products or helping customers – all three agree it never feels like work. “We’re a family. When you walk in you can feel the warmth and love,” McLintock said. Working at the busy thrift store also keeps them active and fit. “It’s all about keeping your body moving,” said Waksel. “It’s much better than sitting and watching the dumb television all day.” When asked what they’ll be doing in the year to come, it was a unanimous decision for the octogenarian and the two nonagenarians. “We’re going to keep volunteering, of course,” Fedak said.

When I hear a name like Peony Cora Stubbs, the term ‘raving beauty’ doesn’t immediately jump to mind. But it should because this is one gorgeous peony. Large plant in 1 gal pots will bloom next month. Reg. 19.99 Need a support ring? We have them.

lifestyles Milestone anniversary for South Surrey couple

Celebrating seven decades together Sarah Massah Staff Reporter

S

itting among a group of friends at Peace Portal Lodge, Cecil and Agnes Bradbury looked like the king and queen of the prom. Friends and family members came up to congratulate the couple, patting Cecil, 93, on the back and giving Agnes, 87, a kiss on the cheek. It was a big day for the longtime South Surrey couple, as May 8 marked 70 years of commitment together, 20 of which they have spent on the Semiahmoo Peninsula. “It’s a big milestone,” daughter Bonnie Morrison said. Morrison, with help from the staff at Peace Portal Lodge, threw her parents a surprise anniversary party at the retirement community, complete with a performance from Happy Gang Glee Club, which Agnes is a member of. Before the show began, Agnes grabbed Cecil’s hand and smiled for photos – another addition to the vast collection that has accumulated for seven decades. The two met while Agnes worked at Oben Bakery in Vancouver, Morrison said. “Dad came in and he said he fell

Cecil and Agnes Bradbury celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary with family and friends last week. in love with that little redhead,” she said, noting that the nickname ‘Red’ stuck with Agnes throughout the years.

Cecil was then conscripted during the Second World War, opting for the navy “so he didn’t have to wear a tie,” Morrison

laughed, noting he was an excellent swimmer. While back on a 20-day leave from the HMCS St. Laurent, Cecil

and Agnes wed, right before Cecil was called back to war, leaving his new wife for a year. Upon returning, Cecil was hired on with Wolfe Chevrolet, where he designed the first assembly body shop at the time. He remained a manager at Wolfe until he retired. As for Agnes, her passion was music. “She was into singing. Her and her sisters were called The Gang, and they would perform at the Kitsilano Showboat and seniors’ facilties around the area,” she said. “Dad was more of a sports nut in his free time.” One of their mutual passions was their family, Morrison said. “We’re a very close-knit family,” she said. “Dad adores his grandkids.” Each year, the family comes together to celebrate Cecil and Agnes’ anniversary with a trip to Montgomery Cottage for fish and chips, but this year, opted to make it a more special occasion with a big party at Peace Portal, where Cecil resides. And while Agnes was not able to join in the singing this year, sitting beside her husband, flocked by her grandson and friends, she looked quite content to simply enjoy the music and the company.

SPRING HOME

PART II

hether it’s indoors or outdoors, beautiful furniture is one of the main focuses of any room. For those who are looking to spruce up the inside of their home, Gary Patterson of GS & Co. says a lot has changed over the last few years for furniture styles. “As baby-boomers are aging, they are moving out of their big homes and downsizing to a smaller home, so the scale of furniture is getting smaller to fit,” Gary said. “People are starting to look at sectionals with a chaise, as opposed to a sofa and love seat.” Gary notes a return to more neutral colours and earth tones, as well as a move to more textured fabrics, such as chenille, in lieu of suede. “People are looking at neutrals, browns, blacks, grays and even burgundy,” Gary said. “There are more solid colours and people seem to be keeping it basic.” But while the furniture may be basic and neutral, Gary said accents are becoming a popular way to incorporate a pop of colour or pattern. “Things are really getting exciting with pillows in an accent color, it brings the room alive and can be a great conversation piece,” Gary said. “The best part is you can easily replace them when you’re bored.” People can even co-ordinate a chair with a pillow, matching the fabrics to make it an accent chair, Gary said. “Furniture is just like the fashion industry, people watch shows and apply common sense to their project,” he said. For the exterior section of your house, Phyllis Murphy of Murph Co. Interiors said that fabrics are changing to become more multi-use, such as Sunbrella fabrics, which provide protection from ultra-violet rays, and are long-lasting fabrics, that resist fading and won’t mold or mildew. “People are using higher-quality furnishings for longterm use as they utilize their outdoor space more and more,” Phyllis said. “We have been helping people turn their patios into verandas with side panels and Sunbrella sheers, which provide shade, privacy and filters the UV rays up t o 93 per cent.” As more people look to the outdoors as a place to relax, Phyllis said she has noticed an influx of fire pits, which have evolved over the years. “We’re finding very sleek fire pits that run on natural gas, propane or a gel, and they come in smaller sizes with glass enclosures, stones and beautiful colours,” she said. Most importantly, Phyllis suggests those looking to spruce up their backyard review what their needs are and come up with a clear idea or theme. “People look for a design that evokes a feeling, whether it’s of their childhood or of a special occasion,” she said. “The outdoors should be fun.”

Seasonal maintenance With the sun finally shining, it’s time to prepare your home and backyard for the onslaught of activity headed its way. For those who are looking to prune their trees, David Andermatt of Pacific SunTree services recommends taking the time to find a professional who will prune the tree correctly. “It’s quite easy to prune incorrectly,” said Andermatt, a professional arbourist. “There are well-established techniques for pruning which vary from species and age of tree.” If a tree is not pruned properly, it goes into shock, Andermatt said. “When you take away the leaf area, which feeds the trees and provides sugars which allows it to grow, it can cause decay in incorrect pruning points, especially if it’s large limbs that are removed,” he said. Other issues that may arise include multiple new shoots where incorrect pruning has been done, resulting in denser growth and a tree that is out of balance. For those looking to spruce up the interior of their home, changing the colour is a great way to start. And while it may be tempting to get a brush and jump right in, Lee McCann of Dulux Paints suggests taking the time to make sure all the necessary steps are covered. “Prep work is the worst, yet most important, part of any paint job.

Use a little richer colour in hightraffic areas, lighter shades will show more wear and tear quickly.” McCann also suggests working with what you love in your home by drawing a palette from different items in your home. According to McCann, people are having fun with bold feature walls, even adding textured wall paper to a wall to make it a focal point. Most importantly, McCann said that those looking to change up the colours in their home need to focus on how it represents their feelings and needs. “I truly believe that colours and styles are very personal. Their purpose is to make our souls happy,” she said.

Whether it’s something simple, such as a large water bowl with gurgling water and a few floating water hyacinths or a concrete or resin fountain, there are many options available, he said. “A pond is a surprisingly easy feature to build and maintain that will attract birds,

dragon flies and butterflies,” Kerry said, noting mosquitos can be kept out of water features with small goldfish or koi. For those looking to add something a bit bigger, Kerry suggests considering hot tubs. “They have come a long way since they first appeared on the scene in the ‘60s and ‘70s,” Kerry said. “They are now amazingly easy and inexpensive to operate. According to Kerry, the new generation of hot tubs have energy efficient  see page 21

Water brings a ‘sense of peace’  from page 20 circulating pumps that “cost only pennies to operate.â€? “A good hot tub will run for about $10 to $15 a month in power consumption,â€? Kerry said. “New care-free water care products will allow you to enjoy beautiful, crystal-clear water without the old familiar swimming pool smell of yesteryear.â€? Kerry also notes that additional sterilization can be achieved with an optional ultra-violet ďŹ lter. And for those who want to support local manufacturers, Kerry said many good quality hot tubs are made in Surrey. “They will last for decades with new synthetic cabinetry that will never need painting and won’t degrade over time,â€? he said. Home Again, Home Again’s Darlene Spooner also suggests adding water features to a backyard. “When you add water to an environment, a natural sense of peace seems to arrive,â€? she said. Other suggestions including adding slate or ďŹ ber glass in a garden room or outside in the summer to enhance space, and statues to the garden. “There are statue ďŹ gurines made of strong, durable, lightweight ďŹ ber glass with marble casing that can withstand the temperature for years,â€? Darlene said. “We also have smaller rock fountains that have the look of natural stone, and

are good for inside or outside. And each one comes with a light.â€? Over at Potters’ Nursery, Scott Pasternack has also noticed an increase in interest for garden statuary. Many people are looking to ďŹ nd a perfect piece which will serve as a focal point in their garden. “There are many available, but Japenese-themed statues and new art nova pieces are extremely popular,â€? he said. And for those who may not have the most private backyard, Pasternack suggests creating a screen, whether it’s a lattice with a plant growing on it or stone, there are many different ways to create an intimate space on your patio. “Adding plant material or stone is a great way to create a nook for some privacy,â€? Pasternack said. If adding a tropical theme to your backyard is the plan, Scott suggests adding tender, annual water plants and tropical plants to water bowls and around the garden to create a getaway, right in our backyard, Adding night-time lighting or tiki torches is another way to create a backyard oasis, Pasternack adds. Most importantly, Pasternack suggests having fun with your green space. “Use big, bold containers, add annual, tropical and perennial plants,â€? he said. “It’s summer, so you can be big and bold.â€?

Getting your closet organized can be easy wtith a few tools and some helpful guidelines.

Time to tackle your closet Spring fever often drives us to put away, organize and classify. Leap into action this year with a ready-to-assemble closet storage unit that suits your needs. This type of modular storage kit is generally made up of support columns and racks to support drawers and sliding shelves. To these basic elements can be added different accessories, such as closet rods and shoe racks. If you know the exact measurements of the available space, some retailers even have software to produce a computerized design of your choice. At home, a jigsaw is useful for cutting prefabricated strips that are sometimes too long. Depending on the model, don’t forget

to leave sufficient space for the opening and closing of folding or swinging doors. If you have a closed room to devote to this project, you can create a walk-in closet in which you will have plenty of room to move about and choose your clothes. You can also create a new space for a walk-in closet. You will need to buy side panels to erect as walls. To these, you must add angle supports to hold shelves, as well as columns that will hold the angle supports and a sliding rail system. Once this stage is completed you can start assembling a modular closet unit. You’ll find an electric screwdriver very useful for this task.

news Provincial government will provide $79.5 million boost

BC Ferries to cut service Tom Fletcher Black Press

The B.C. government is giving BC Ferries an extra $79.5 million over the next four years, and is looking for another $45 million in operational savings to bring rate increases down to the rate of inflation over that time. Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom said the inflation goal will not be met immediately, even with most of the extra money up front. The government’s price cap of 4.15 per cent increases for all routes remains in place for this year, and B.C. ferry commissioner Gord Macatee will set increases

for the next three years after consultation with coastal communities. BC Ferries CEO Mike Corrigan said the corporation expects to cut at least 100 sailings on its major Vancouver Island routes, with low-ridership sailings late in the evening the most likely target. Corrigan said he is confident service reductions can save $30 million over the next four years, and another $15 million in efficiencies can be found within the corporation’s $750 million budget.

news Snowpack still above normal

Fraser flood risk elevated Jeff Nagel Black Press

Heavy snow in B.C.’s interior poses a risk of flooding in the Fraser Valley this year, but much will depend on the weather patterns in the weeks ahead. The entire Fraser River watershed has 29 per cent more snow than normal, as of the latest readings taken by the River Forecast Centre May 1. And the upper Fraser and Nechako basins – which supply about a third of the Fraser water that flows through the Lower Mainland – are running at around 50 per cent above normal. “There is an elevated flood risk present through the entire length of the mainstem of the Fraser River, from the Robson Valley to the Fraser Valley,” according to the centre’s latest bulletin. Some B.C. communities have already been hit with isolated flooding due to rising local creeks and rivers, and forecasters say the risk of seasonal flooding later this spring is “exceptional” in some regions. But they say the Fraser won’t likely peak in the Lower Mainland until sometime between mid-May and late June or July, depending on the weather. A lengthy run of hot temperatures, heavy rain or a combination of the two is described as the worst case scenario. Floodplain dwellers should hope for seasonal temperatures and dry weather for the rest of the spring, particularly in the watershed’s northern basins. Above-normal temperatures are expected in most of the watershed by this weekend. Lower Mainland residents would have plenty of warning of any high water. The River Forecast Centre runs computer simulations to generate five-day forecasts of flow the length of the Fraser. Flood warnings are issued if rivers are forecast to approach or reach flood level.

In the program, which runs July 3 to 13, performers at a beginner to intermediate level learn from industry professionals, gaining skills, confidence and contacts necessary to pursue a musical theatre education and ultimately pursue a career in professional theatre. Participants don’t have to be equally accomplished in singing dancing and acting, according to program director and founder Peter Jorgensen – himself a critically acclaimed musical theatre performer – as classes aim to build on existing talents to set young artists on a path to becoming accomplished triplethreats. Applicants must have any two out of the following background credits: two years dance training, one year of private voice training, one year singing with a school or community choir, one year of acting/drama classes and experience performing in a school or community musical. Deadline for registration at the basic price ($499) is June 1. Cost for late applicants is $525. For more information, call 604501-5566 or visit www.surrey.ca/ arts

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Track and field athletes shine in back-to-back meets at South Surrey Athletic Park

Leaping onto World Athletics’ podium Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

A busy week on the track was highlighted by a handful of top performances Wednesday at World Athletics Day at South Surrey Athletic Park. A number of athletes – from the Semiahmoo Peninsula and across the Lower Mainland – turned in strong performances during Wednesday’s meet, but none better than Elgin Park Secondary hurdler Jake Hanna, who won the Grade 8/9 boys 100-m hurdles in convincing fashion, finishing the race in a time of 14.42 seconds. Hanna’s time was nearly four seconds faster than Tim Bertness of Mennonite Educational Institute, and qualified Hanna for 2012 Legion Canadian Youth Track and Field Championships later this summer in Charlottetown, PEI. Later in the day, he also won the junior boys 400-m race. Hanna wasn’t the only local athlete to excel in hurdles, however. Ocean Athletics’ Steve Saito edged Walnut Grove’s Connor Elgin Park’s Jake Hanna McCreadie for first wins the 100-m hurdles. place in the senior boys 110-m event; Semiahmoo’s Madi Wolitski crossed the line first in the Grade 8/9 girls 80-m hurdles, and Semi teammate Katherine Reiss was third; while Ocean Athletics’ Kiana Bekar was first in another Grade 8/9 80-m event. In the junior boys 800-m, Lord Tweedsmuir’s Liam McKay edged Terry Fox runner Nathan Wadhwani and Semi’s Brandon Figueroa for first. Among the other athletes to finish on the podium were Earl Marriott Secondary’s Matthew McLean, who was first in the Grade 8/9 boys 100-m, Elgin’s Kristin Fairbairn, who was second in the Grade 8 girls 800-m; Elgin’s Lexy Reimer, second in the junior girls 100-m, and EMS Grade 8 runner Jade Duncanson won the Grade 8 girls 100-m. South Surrey athletes also did well in steeplechase. Marriott’s Deon Clifford won the senior boy’s 2,000-m steeple race, while Semi’s Chelsea Ribiero won the girls 1,500-m event. The World Athletics Day meet was followed Thursday by the Hershey Track and Field Games, which features athletes from age nine to 14. Both events were run by the Ocean Athletics track club.

HASSELL Robert Wesley (Bob)

Passed away very peacefully on May 9 at the age of 89 in his South Surrey home with Florence “Mother”, his devoted wife of 65 years at his side. He is lovingly remembered by his three daughters, Diane Balsor (David), Sandra Howes (Chuck) and Shirley Montague (Peter), his six grandchildren Jocelyn, Lindsey (Rico), Lisa (Matt), Laura, Rob, and Spencer and his 3 great grandchildren Dominic, Olivia and Brenna. He is also survived by his brother Reg and predeceased by his sisters Dorothy, Irene, Lois and brothers Lawrence and Richard. Born in Cumberland, BC on Feb 12, 1923 he lived most of his life in South Surrey. He started in the bulldozing business with his three brothers. From there his many business projects spanned the Lower Mainland, California and Florida. A determined, self taught and hands on man, he undertook challenges and problems with the same enthusiasm as he lived his life. In the early years, with Florence as his trusty navigator, and their three daughters in tow, they created many happy family memories as he piloted his own plane around the country. Later, they followed that with boating and fishing around the west coast and finally, travelling together in their motor coach, many times crisscrossing the United States and Canada. Over the years, on countless occasions, people would take advantage of his vast wisdom and incredible problem solving skills. He was never too busy to help a friend or associate and always, without any fuss or fanfare. He thrived on seeking solutions no matter how difficult the task. He made a big difference in many people’s lives and will be greatly missed. A Celebration of Life Service will be held Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at 2:00pm at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre, 14831 28 Avenue, Surrey, BC.If you so choose, in lieu of flowers we ask that a donation be made to the Peace Arch Hospital Foundation as Dad had generously supported our local hospital in the past.

OBITUARIES

HUDSON, Harry Died May 9th, 2012, age 85. Born in Romania and widely travelled, he lived some years in Turkey, Greece and Australia, coming to BC in 1957. Here he worked for 30 years with Finning Tractor and retired with many Awards of Appreciation. Master of eight 8 languages and devoted husband of Celia and longtime friend of the family. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him and admired his brilliance. STRAUSS, Oswald (Ozzie), age 97, died in Victoria on May 5, 2012 as a result of an accident. His family was at his side when he passed away. Born on May 12, 1914 in Kemeri, Latvia, Oswald moved to Riga to complete his education. As a marine engineer he served in World War II and later in the British Merchant Navy, sailing between Liverpool and ports throughout western Europe and in the Mediterranean. He immigrated to Vancouver, Canada and worked on the steamship Prince George, Canadian National Rail’s cruise ship to Alaska. He became a Canadian citizen on December 20, 1956. Oswald later transferred his skills to land operations and settled in Port Alberni, working as a steam engineer at the MacMillan Bloedel pulp and paper mill until his retirement. He was an enthusiastic and skilled tennis player, and enjoyed hiking and camping along the west coast of North America. On his retirement, Oswald moved to White Rock, travelled widely and continued his love of the ocean through his sailboat, moored at Crescent Beach Marina. He successfully completed the Canadian Power and Sail Squadron boating course at the age of 74, and sailed around the south coast into his 80’s. Oswald was husband to Velta and Clementine (Tina), and beloved friend and companion to Maria; all deceased. He is survived by his daughters Irene, Ingrid (Russ), and Aneita; and grandchildren Jared, Kyla, Brynn, and Kieran. Thank you to Maria’s daughter Flavianne and other family members for their help and support during Oswald’s retirement years. Thanks also to Berwick House and Victoria General Hospital staff for their encouragement, compassion and support.

TROSKEY, Marjorie Isabel (nee Cameron) January 27, 1912 May 11, 2012 Marjorie Troskey died peacefully in her sleep on May 11, 2012 in White Rock BC. She was 100 years old. Marj was predeceased by Harv, her husband of 67 years, and by her brothers Ian and Cam. She is survived by her daughter Lynn, Peter Hesketh and her niece and nephews and their families. Marj was born in Last Mountain, Saskatchewan and lived in Raymore until she attended the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon where she earned a Bachelor of Arts. She worked in Regina until her marriage in 1942 to Maxwell Harvard Troskey, her friend since childhood. Marj and Harv had a long and happy life - full of friends, sports, bridge, travel and martinis. They divided their time between Maui and White Rock BC which allowed them to play tennis almost every day until they were well into their 80’s. Marj was a warm and gracious hostess and was cherished by her friends. We are grateful to Azucena Quinio dela Cruz for her invaluable assistance and would like to thank the staff at Peace Portal Lodge for all their care and kindness. We are honouring Marj’s wish that there be no funeral, no memorial and no flowers. Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre 604-536-6522
