Abbotsford thief awaits sentence after pleading guilty to a series of residential break-ins in South Surrey
He’s not a heartless drug addict: lawyer Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter
A 38-year-old Abbotsford man who broke into and stole from 11 South Surrey homes did so to feed what had become a $600-a-day heroin habit, Judge Michael Hicks heard Friday. But Darwin Duane Dorozan doesn’t want sympathy for the path that led to the “severe drug addiction” that fueled his actions, defence lawyer Gordon Bowen said during his client’s sentenc-
ing hearing in Surrey Provincial Court. “He’s not here trying to garner your honour’s sympathy for a rough childhood. He’s taking full responsibility,” Bowen said. “It may seem that he’s just a heartless drug addict, but he’s not.” Dorozan pleaded guilty earlier this month – three days before he was scheduled to go to trial – to 12 counts of break-and-enter, in connection with incidents committed between April and August last year, and one in August of
2010. One of the charges stems from a break-in in Langley; another “amounts to a home invasion,” prosecutor Mike Fortino noted. Dorozan was originally charged with 21 counts of break-and-enter, one count of possession of stolen property and one count of assault with a weapon. He was arrested last August with his younger brother, Dane, after police conducting surveillance on the pair observed the removal of numerous
electronics from a home in the 16400block of 28 Avenue. The suspects fled the area in a van, and officers who followed reported seeing some of the electronics being thrown from the vehicle as it sped along 188 Street, shortly before it was pulled over near 184 Street and 20 Avenue. Damage to the home and electronics targeted that day totalled $20,000, Hicks heard. see page 4

And that was just a taste of last Friday’s Elementary Special Track and Field Meet, hosted by the Surrey School District at South Surrey Athletic Park. The one-day meet featured nearly 200 special-needs athletes from 37 Surrey schools – and hundreds of teachers, parents and other
volunteers – and saw students compete in races of various distances, long jump, softball toss, T-ball and an obstacle course. “It just is a way to get kids with special needs involved (in track and field), too,” said event organizer and William Watson Elementary principal Margaret Geddes, who founded the event four years ago while at Bayridge Elementary. “We just had this idea, myself and the teachers there, to host a track meet for children with

special needs to promote fitness and participation for all kids, and to give them a chance to wear their school jerseys.” Since the first meet was held four years ago, it has more than doubled in size. “All the schools who have attended, they want to come back, and then more and more schools are hearing about it and wanting to be a part of it,” Geddes said. – Nick Greenizan
Members of the Integrated Gang Task Force were at a Pacific Avenue home in White Rock Thursday afternoon. But White Rock RCMP Const. Janelle Shoihet said, due to safety concerns for those involved, she could share little information, including exactly what brought the team to the seaside city. “All I can tell you is the IGTF was in town,” she said Friday. The community, she added, is “absolutely” safe. “It was totally an isolated thing, I can assure you of that.” The officers caught the attention of area residents around 1 p.m. May 24. The home that was targeted is located just east of the White Rock RCMP detachment. One woman who lives nearby and called Peace Arch News the next day described the incident as a “takedown.” The officers wore blue uniforms and carried “bigger guns,” she said. Shoihet said no arrests were made, and that further information would be released to the public “as soon as it is practical to do so.” Monday morning, Shoihet remained tight-lipped, adding only that police are still looking for people associated with the incident. - Tracy Holmes

Police look for suspect Kevin Diakiw Black Press
The man is shown late at night, splashing gasoline from a jerrycan on a home in West Vancouver. He then lights it and takes off, which was all caught on video released Friday by police (available at www.peacearchnews.com), who believe the man caught on tape is responsible for attacks on people connected with the Justice Institute of B.C. In 2011, there were a total of 13 shootings and arsons – including some in Surrey – targeting people with ties to the Justice Institute, which trains police, paramedics and emergency first responders. In one of the more recent attacks, on Jan. 7 at 2:30 a.m., a package exploded on the doorstep of a home in the 8300-block of 151 Street in Surrey. It didn’t cause any injuries and caused very little damage to the residence. The residents of the home put the fire out themselves and called 911. It was the third time in the last year the home, now fitted with closed-circuit TV cameras, was targeted. Police say the home

was also subject to an arson attack in April 2011 and a drive-by shooting of a vehicle the following month. In the West Vancouver arson, police are looking for a man with a slim build who was wearing a light-coloured ball cap and a twotoned jacket with a dark chest. Investigators have identified several additional suspects directly involved in the arsons and shootings. “We believe that one of these suspects may have sustained burns while setting a fire in Surrey on Nov. 2, 2011,” said RCMP Sgt. Peter Thiessen in a news release. Police are also asking someone who emailed them to get in contact with them again. “That person clearly has more information regarding these offences,” Thiessen said. “We encourage that emailer to contact us at 604-598-4326 or by email at arsoninfo@ rcmp-grc.gc.ca” Police ask the public to be vigilant, and to immediately report any suspicious activity to their local police. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

news 71% of homes in Surrey and White Rock now have smart meters
Smart-meter foes fail to foil rollout, so far Jeff Nagel Black Press
Smart meters are now installed in more than two-thirds of the households in the Lower Mainland. BC Hydro officials say more than 720,000 meters are now installed in the region with close to 300,000 homes still to go. The penetration rate is about 90 per cent already in Burnaby, Richmond, Delta, Langley and Chilliwack, according to Hydro statistics. The new wireless meters are installed in about 74 per cent of Vancouver homes, 71 per cent in Surrey and White Rock, 63 per cent in Abbotsford and Mission, 61 per cent on the North Shore and 28 per cent in the Coquitlam/Maple Ridge areas. Officials say the rollout of their smart
power grid is continuing without difficulty. “We have had some challenges,” said Gary Murphy, the program’s chief project officer. The Crown corporation continues to field complaints about high bills, but Murphy said that in many cases, customers were not correctly comparing billing periods and many were complaining about bills for usage that pre-dated installation of their smart meters. BC Hydro has pulled 1,057 smart meters from service for testing at the direction of the meter manufacturer, which cited concern about possible manufacturing flaw. Murphy said at least 700 have now been tested and just 0.5 per cent were found to be outside Measurement Canada’s accuracy standard of three per cent. About two per cent of households con-
tinue to oppose installation of smart meters, according to Hydro communications manager Cindy Verschoor. Opponents of the program argue smart meters pose a possible health hazard from adding an extra layer of radio frequency radiation, and numerous B.C. city councils have passed resolutions urging Hydro to allow customers to opt out. “It’s really not viable to offer an opt-out,” Verschoor said, but added Hydro has still not decided how it will respond to holdouts. Nobody in B.C. has yet opted to relocate their meter – at their own expense – to a more distant spot on their property, she noted. The B.C. Utilities Commission had rejected opponents’ request for an injunction halting the program. That decision is under appeal.
Tests by the B.C. Centre for Disease Control found a bank of 10 Hydro smart meters forced to all send signals at once – something that doesn’t happen in practice – results in exposure of about four microwatts per square centimeter at a range of 30 cm, compared to seven microwatts for a microwave oven, 9.6 for a cellphone and 15.6 for a baby monitor. The report said time-averaged RF exposure from smart meters at all of those ranges was “low” – less than 0.001 per cent of Health Canada’s safety limit of 600 microwatts per square centimeter of continuous exposure. According to the opposition group, Citizens for Safe Technology, 48 B.C. municipalities – including Vancouver, Surrey and White Rock – have called for either a smartmeter moratorium or an opt-out provision.

Limits raised for overnight shoppers in the U.S.
Border-town retailers brace for new duty-free rules Jeff Nagel Black Press
B.C. retailers are bracing for the loss of even more business to cross-border shopping starting June 1, even though more generous duty-free allowances that start then apply only to overnight stays. The duty-free limit for visits to the U.S. longer than 24 hours rises from $50 to $200 Friday. Stays 48 hours or longer will qualify for $800 in duty-free purchases, up from $400 previously for visits up to a week. Day trippers or those just nipping across the border for gas and groceries won’t notice a difference, said Mark Startup, executive director of ShelfSpace, an association of Western Canada retailers.
“If you’re going to go down for 25 minutes and spend $80 to fill up your car with bread, milk and cheese, the duty-free allowance change will have no impact on that behaviour,” he said. Nor, he suggested, is it likely many will stay overnight to save an extra $150 in duty. “Where we might see some increases are from the bigger 48-hour exemption,” Startup said. “Some of our members have expressed concern over that.” Bank of Montreal economist Douglas Porter warns in a report that the drain of Canadian shoppers heading south is weighing heavily on retail sales here. He said official estimates that cross-border shopping accounts for less than two per
cent of consumer spending likely “vastly understate” the problem. Porter suggests cross-border spending may actually account for eight to 10 per cent of goods that can flow across the border, since half of all consumer spending goes to rent and other captive services. Startup said Porter is likely right, since many people who cross don’t declare what they bring back and aren’t counted in official figures. Startup said ShelfSpace would like the Conservative government to reduce import duties retailers here must pay on goods they bring in – to help level the playing field. That differential is a prime reason why many products cost less in the U.S. than Canada, even though both dollars now trade at close to par.
There are also different costs here related to labeling and packaging, and higher distribution costs across a Canadian market that is smaller but more spread out. In addition, marketing boards result in significantly higher prices in Canada for everything from poultry and eggs to milk and cheese. “U.S. retailers do not have that constraint,” Startup said, adding he understands the federal government is considering reforms to Canadian marketing boards that might lead to more competitive pricing. “They protect local industry but at a cost in terms of price,” added Ray Hudson, Surrey Board of Trade policy development and communications manager. The Surrey Board of Trade is sup-
porting a resolution to the Canadian Chamber of Commerce pressing Ottawa to investigate crossborder shopping impacts. Removing import tariffs is a key concern, Hudson said, noting retailers here are charged an 18 per cent tariff on imported sports equipment that U.S. competitors don’t pay. Another issue is that many manufacturers or wholesalers charge Canadian retailers more money for the same product. Hudson said Ottawa could help offset the higher limits for overnight stays by tightening enforcement on same-day shoppers. “It seems people can shop the same day and come back with all kinds of goods – hundreds of dollars – and they’re not being challenged.”

news Driving ban after 2009 death
Sheila Reynolds Black Press
The family of a Surrey teen killed in a drunken, speedfuelled crash three years ago is not surprised that the teenaged driver, who was just sentenced in February and banned from driving, is now in jail facing new charges – three of which are driving-related. Sanjay and Sara Sharma’s eldest son, 15-year-old Sanjeeve, was in the back seat of a car driven by a 16-year-old in June 2009 when the vehicle crashed into a lamp post near 128 Street and 82 Avenue. Sanjeeve was seriously injured and died later in hospital. The driver, who had taken his mom’s car and had only his learner’s permit, was charged with dangerous driving causing death – a charge to which he eventually pleaded guilty. Though he is now an adult, he cannot be named because he was a minor at the time of the 2009 crash. Earlier this year, he was sentenced to a six-month deferred custody and supervision order (comparable to house arrest) – under which he was to keep the peace and be of good behaviour. He was also prohibited from driving for 3½ years and banned from possessing weapons. During sentencing, the judge
The family of Sanjeeve Sharma gather at the courthouse last week. advised the youth to “show the world you’re not the man you were two years ago.” Now, just 3½ months later, he is accused of not only being behind the wheel illegally, but committing a series of other crimes. The young man, who is now 19, was arrested May 6 in Surrey and charged with operating a motor vehicle while disqualified, uttering threats, assault with a weapon and driving while prohibited. A fifth charge of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle was added May 23. “This guy will never change,” said Sanjay Sharma. “I’m not surprised at all. This isn’t his last, there’ll be more. Trouble is trouble is trouble.” Part of the teen’s sentence in

connection with Sanjeeve’s death was to participate in a restorative youth justice program, where victims of crime meet with perpetrators, if the Sharmas were willing. Sanjay said he was going to give the young man a year to see if he would actually turn his life around before agreeing to participate. Now, Sanjay said, he’s not interested. “He should have considered himself blessed… with that light sentence,” said Sanjay. “I would have been really thrilled with that if I were him and just followed the easy guidelines the judge gave.” The young man’s next appearance on the new charges is scheduled for June 4.

Keep pressure on high-risk drivers he Victoria Day long weekend – which typically ushers in the summer season on the Peninsula and beyond – has come and gone, and with the warmer weather, comes more beach time, more barbecues and, for many people, more time on the road. That’s why police agencies throughout the province are waging a focused assault on speeding and aggressive driving, and are particularly focused on problem roads and intersections to drive home the idea that tailgating, speeding, and high-risk driving – which includes, of course, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol – won’t be tolerated. In Surrey, RCMP also announced this week they’ve began their summertime crackdown on noise complaints, mischief and public consumption of alcohol – all of which usually trend higher in summer months. And while excessive noise from a rowdy neighbourhood barbecue is a nuisance, it’s aggressive driving behaviour that not only frustrates other drivers, but also puts them – and pedestrians – at risk, whether it’s someone riding too close on the highway or weaving in and out of traffic, running yellow and red lights or generally behaving in ways that ramp up road rage. For police, combating reckless driving is a labour-intensive and time-consuming task. Unlike roadblocks where officers can wait for drunk drivers to come to them, traffic patrol officers need to witness and document speeding and dangerous driving. But it’s a worthwhile effort. Culled from police data, ICBC attributes 60 per cent of all crashes at intersections to speed, distracted and inattentive driving and ignoring right-of-ways. The annual campaign against high-risk driving has started up across the province this month, and more people than usual are being hit with tickets. But people need to remember police aren’t the enemy – traffic officers are trying to make the roads safer and more civil for all. Drinking and driving remains a high-profile problem, as does the purely aggressive, highrisk driving that impacts people’s day-to-day lives as they drive to work or school or for a well-deserved day off at the beach. Police and ICBC’s latest efforts to help keep the pressure on bad drivers year-round should be applauded and encouraged.

So far this week you’ve said… yes 38% no 62% 49 responding identified in Alberta in 2003. B.C. Agriculture Minister Don McRae assures me this legislation will not result in reporters or environmental activists being thrown in jail for telling the public about sick animals. They and the farmers themselves can say all they want, once infections are confirmed and quarantines established. McRae and Paul Kitching, B.C.’s chief veterinarian, pleaded for the public to understand that any farm reporting system must rely on voluntary compliance by farmers. When the B.C. government took the advice of B.C. Information and Privacy Commissioner Elizabeth Denham and began releasing fish farm inspection data in 2010, the operators stopped providing samples voluntarily. The fish farmers’ position was that you can have a co-operative system of farm inspections or one that’s imposed, but not both. Imposing inspections on land farms across B.C.’s vast area is even less practical. Former Alberta premier Ralph Klein famously observed that the next rancher to find a possible mad cow should have “shot, shoveled and shut up” rather than file a report and devastate the industry. Denham, the NDP and others appear to operate under an assumption that there should be sufficient government resources to sample and inspect every farm across B.C. for reportable contagious illnesses. This is similar to the fashionable notion that we should have enough park rangers to guard every cedar tree.

Robocalls need a closer look Editor: Re: Election fraud on Tory radar, May 15 letters. MP Russ Hiebert’s letter to the editor contained contradictions to the minutes of the Government of Canada House and Procedure Committee meeting on March 29. Marc Maynard, chief electoral officer for Elections Canada, spoke about the investigation into the irregularities of the 2012 federal election: “In the last general election, a total of 473 polls, or less than one per cent, were moved, affecting some 300,000 electors.” Hiebert (South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale) writes: “…while the use of phone services to reach voters has certainly been demonized recently by the improper actions of a few, such services are essential to free and fair elections. For instance, in the 2011 election, Elections Canada changed the locations of over 1,000 polling stations during the campaign.” 1,000-473=527. Can Hiebert explain the discrepancy? Hiebert also writes: “The ability of candidates and parties to use phone services to inform voters of the new polling locations, and encourage them out to vote, strengthened our democracy.” Maynard states: “We have the most authoritative and up-to-date information on the electors and their voting locations, and we are accountable for it. This is why we specifically ask political parties and candidates not to communicate with electors in this regard, but refer them to Elections Canada in order to avoid errors and confusion among electors.” Why is Hiebert stating that political parties phoning constituents about polling-station changes strengthens our democracy, when Elections Canada clearly indicated to all parties and candidates not to communicate with electors about polling-stations changes? The failure to follow the rules has resulted in seven election results being contested before the Supreme Court of Canada… so far. Lisa Nolan, White Rock Q Because the Liberal candidate in Guelph was using “robocall” technology, like most candidates, MP Russ Hiebert compares this to the robocalls scandal. I thought he was a lawyer, but he seems to have missed the distinction between the proper use of automated phone calls during an election – which is a procedural or ethical concern – and misdirecting Canadian voters, which is a much more serious criminal offence. An April EKOS Research report found that in seven ridings won by Conservatives, 30,000-50,000 voters “received deliberately misleading calls aimed at suppressing nonConservative votes.” Perhaps that’s why the Harper Cons scheduled the most damning robocalls report during the Budget 2012 lockdown. Their response to that report was,
in my opinion, to desperately try to minimize its importance. So I was surprised when Hiebert mentioned his party is “actively assisting” Elections Canada to solve this crime. The ruling party just slashed the Elections Canada budget, and we all know how the Conservatives like to co-operate with EC people, like suing them until they have to admit guilt. I’m sure they’ll get along really well again this time. Larry Colero, White Rock Q An open letter to MP Russ Hiebert. Unfortunately my question as submitted was not answered, so I will restate. (Voter fraud met by silence, May 10 letters.) Fact: Elections Canada has confirmed that 200 ridings were targeted by robocalls that falsely directed voters to the wrong polling station in the last federal election. Fact: Elections Canada has traced a computer from the Conservative campaign in Guelph, Ont., to the account that paid for the robocalls. Agreed, the “whodunit” could well prove to be isolated to a few individuals. And I’d also like to state for the record that in no way do I believe that this riding was targeted. However, my point is, it is possible
voter wishes aren’t accurately represented in the government, and the only way to right any wrongdoing is to hold byelections in all targeted ridings – yes, even the ones won by Liberals and NDP. Mr. Hiebert, in the immortal words of Public Safety Minister Vic Toews, you can either stand with us – in this case, the voters – or you can stand with the cheaters. Richelle Benoit, Surrey
Legalizing pot only a next step Editor: Another attempt by Vancouver council and others to push for legalization of marijuana. Such a moronic hypothesis lacks fundamental credibility to read. I had done research in the early 1990s comparing revenue received from alcohol – a legal drug – sales versus the cost in dollars, not to even touch on social costs of addiction. The cost to society of alcohol legalization was five times all revenue gained – $500 million in receipts and $2.5 billion then.
The screaming of academic pot advocates and their minions in government can be heard. The government of Canada is like a human body which has been fighting a virus or bacteria in terms of the pot advocates for years. It has not been a war on drugs any more than the Criminal Code declares a war on theft over or under $5,000. Why not legalize that too? I pity the many dedicated and hardworking addiction counsellors if such a thing were to come to pass. Legalization is nothing more than a social experiment which would affect all our children and their children for many years. Those who choose to traffic in drugs would find other illicit endeavours, I am sure, if their products were legal. Most people I know and associate with do not do illegal acts, at least not to my knowledge. Why not legalize heroin, methamphetamine and its derivatives, PCP and all manner of other drugs? Oh wait, that would mean ultimate legalization of homicide, too, as we have lost the war on that as well. Jim Simpson, Surrey

Digital records far from cheaper e-mail: An open letter to South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale MP Russ Hiebert. In both my capacity as archivist for the community of White Rock and as a Canadian citizen concerned for the documentary heritage of Canada, I am greatly concerned about the recent funding cuts resulting in the elimination of the National Archival Development Program. The support that the NADP has provided for small archives everywhere in Canada – including White Rock – is extremely valuable. In 1993, the White Rock Museum & Archives was organized according to Canadian Archival standards with the support of the Archives Association of B.C. under the auspices of the NADP. What this means is that the records of the past entrusted to us by the people of White Rock are stored and indexed in the best possible way. Without the NADP, this would not have been possible. Over my years as archivist for the WRMA – since 2004 – I have taken 15 courses and seminars provided by the AABC instructing me on best practices for storage, indexing and providing access to the archival material in our collection. Also, the consultants who
have been made available to me time and again through the AABC, and the NADP, are world-class and will be greatly missed by our organization if these funding cuts are not reversed. One of the reasons the federal government implemented these funding cuts seems to be the belief that digitization of conventional records – such as paper documents and photographs – will reduce costs and staff requirements in archives. This could not be further from the truth. Anyone with a modicum of knowledge on the subject knows that digital records are extremely expensive to store and maintain and are not a suitable surrogate for other forms of media. Unfortunately, it seems the important role of archivists and archives in Canadian communities is unclear to some members of the Canadian government. I urge you to speak with your colleagues to make them understand the great danger the loss of the NADP presents to the documentary heritage of small communities across Canada, like White Rock.

White Rock spends less on consultants The City of White Rock’s first quarter has been a decidedly cheaper one than last year’s, as far as spending on consultants goes. According to a report to be presented at Monday’s finance and audit committee meeting – held after Peace Arch News’ deadline
– the city paid $109,679 to consultants from Jan. 1 to March 31. In the same period last year, $247,598 was spent. Sandra Kurylo, the city’s director of financial services, attributed 2011’s higher tab to “a significant amount of work underway on

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula
Cherie Wilson, Scott Booth and Troy Derrick are gearing up for Revive ‘em & Drive ‘em, a show they describe as a traditional hot rod/ motorcycle and music event with a modern twist. Tracy Holmes photo
Revive ’em and Drive ’em event set for June 2
‘Back to basics’ car show revs up Tracy Holmes
cott Booth may be a White Rock firefighter, but he learned early in life what truly flames his passion. “I should have been born in time to be a pilot for World War II and then live the hotrod scene of the ‘50s,” said Booth, shortly after parking his 1931 Roadster. “That’s when I belong.” For Troy Derrick, a Surrey RCMP constable, the vintage craving that led to the nickname “Hambone” and his perch on an 883 Harley Sportster is a natural progression from the skateboarder lifestyle he once lived – non-conformist, yet still accessible. Not to mention the ultimate destiny of the majority: “somehow, we always manage to
turn into our parents, whether we like it or not,” he said with a grin, noting the hobby reminds him of his dad. The pair – who became friends through the common interest and membership with the Blacktop Bombers car and motorcycle club – have teamed up with Langley photographer Cherie Wilson (of Cherrybomb Photography) to further share what drives them, with a hot rod/ motorcycle and pin-up show they’ve planned for June 2, 2 p.m. at the Pacific Inn. More than 130 enthusiasts have signed on to participate in Revive ’em & Drive ‘em, envisioned as a “back-to-the-basics, traditionalist car show and evening social with like-minded promoters, vendors and participants that are looking for a good time with good people.”
“It’s about coming and having fun, listening to the bands,” said Booth, who also represents show co-presenter, Wicked Customs Rod Shop. “The deal with our club is no attitude, no macho bullshit.” The event name is derived from car club members’ interest in reviving and driving “the fixer-uppers, the unappreciated more doors, the often-discarded, oddball makes and models and even the rusty field-finds.” They want to promote the do-it-yourself mentality and “work-in-progress drivers,” with a focus on quality, not quantity. As example, Derrick describes his Sportster as “a Frankenstein” – among many modifications, it boasts Triumph parts and bars he got for $20 at a swap meet. To keep with the theme, classic-car
registration for the June 2 show is restricted to pre-1965, with limited billet or modern parts. Motorcycle registration is more lenient, but with a vision of home-built or personally modified customs, choppers, bobbers or café-style bikes. The organizers note the restrictions are not intended to discourage any classic-car or motorcycle enthusiast from driving their own ride in to check out the show, which is to include booths hosted by local tattoo artists and other traditional aspects of the rockabilly culture. Admission for spectators is $5; car/bike registration is $15. For more information, visit www. reviveemanddriveem.com, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 604-2505343.

Poor, abandoned and mentally disabled children call the Pingalwara Charitable Society home. Sachal was struck by what he saw. “The first time I went, I was in shock that people are different like this,” Sachal says. “It made me realize how people around the world are living and I can make a change.” For Sachal, the seed had been planted for the Sikh practice known as seva (selfless service). In Grade 3, he and his family came to Surrey, and Sachal soon began applying those principles here. In Grade 7, he joined the Royal Canadian Air Cadets, a youth group that involves a lot of volunteerism and fundraising for the less fortunate. After that, there was no stopping Sachal, who is now 17. He ventured into the debate club, the Global Awareness Club, iDEAS 36 (student leadership), student council and the Cure for Cancer Club. He also started Students Without Borders, which has raised $5,000 to build a well in Kenya, as well as distributing food to the less fortunate. The work continues on another well and even more food distribution. Then, on Father’s Day in 2009, when two teens were killed by their stepfather, Sachal moved to help organize an empowerment night at his school – Tamanawis Secondary – to end domestic violence. The list of his work continues. All the while he remained undistracted from his studies at Tamanawis, where he holds a 4.0

Sukhmeet Sachal was honoured by the Better Business Bureau. Grade Point Average. Sachal recently caught the attention of the Better Business Bureau (BBB), which awarded him the Student Ethics Award on May 15. The $2,250 scholarship is awarded to a student with the greatest dedication, integrity, and academic excellence. “Sukhmeet showed true leadership and is wise beyond his years,” said Lynda Pasacreta, BBB president and CEO. “Not only did Sukhmeet meet our academic requirements, he also put in nearly 1,600 hours of his own personal time to take the lead in a wide range of activities that have positive local and even global impacts.”
Sachal’s plans are to study sciences at university, then become a medical doctor. “My long-term goal is to then apply my knowledge and serve alongside Doctors Without Borders to provide for those lacking in basic medical care in underprivileged areas,” he says. Sachal says he gets his drive to give back from his parents, who are also involved with non-profit initiative. As to how he finds any free time to be a 17-year-old, Sachal says there’s plenty of time for that. He describes himself as a compulsive planner, who schedules both his work and his free time.

FUEL FOR FITNESS Professional athletes, and everyday active adults alike, have special dietary needs to achieve and maintain peak athletic performance. At the foundation of it all is what we eat from one day to the next. Laying groundwork for a healthy diet is effective in supplying the body with what it needs to perform. Fuelling the body for ﬁtness is much like maintaining a vehicle; running on empty or using the wrong kind of fuel won’t take us very far. But if we plan for pit-stops and give our bodies a steady ﬂow of premium fuel—healthy sources of protein, carbohydrates and fats—we set ourselves up for success. Timing pit-stops is important to a healthy diet, while regular re-fuelling supplies the body with the calories necessary for physical activity. The ﬁrst pit-stop of the day should be within about an hour of waking. This is the opportunity to break the fast with breakfast, giving the metabolism the jump-start it needs. After pit-stop number one, additional fuel breaks are recommended about every 3 – 4 hours to prevent overeating due to excessive hunger. Here is an example of a pit-stop schedule that’s easy to follow: breakfast at 6:00am, a snack at 9:30am, lunch at 12:00pm, a snack at 3:00pm and ﬁnally dinner at 6:00pm. When it comes to breakfast, the body may have difﬁculty handling a lot of food. The trick is to start small: mix a 1/2cup of yogurt with sliced strawberries or a handful of nuts and seeds with a banana. After a couple of weeks, the body will adjust and will be able to handle a more substantial dose of fuel ﬁrst thing in the morning. Once breakfast is out of the way, strive to meet regular snack and meal times by planning ahead. Pack your own delicious foods wherever you go, and if you have trouble remembering
to eat throughout the day, set an alarm that will prompt you to eat regularly. In combination with pit-stops, there are three vital components for fuelling the body—protein is one of them. The body breaks down protein into building blocks that can be rearranged to repair or build up muscles, immune cells, skin, hair and more. Eating protein at all meals and snacks gives you a sense of fullness and satisfaction without having to overeat. Healthy whole sources of protein ideal for meal times include legumes like beans and lentils, soy products like tofu and tempeh, eggs, lean meats, ﬁsh, seafood, nuts, seeds and dairy products. Snackable proteins include hummus, a boiled egg, a handful of nuts or seeds, marinated tofu skewers, poached ﬁsh or plain Greek yogurt. Carbohydrates are the second component for re-fuelling. They are the preferred fuel for the cells of our body—and the only fuel for certain cells such as premature red blood cells and nerve cells. Consuming carbohydrates supplies the body with sustained energy and can prevent fatigue as well as mood swings. Trendy diets promise weight loss and a healthier body by eliminating carbohydrates from the diet, but that’s not a realistic solution for healthy living. Instead, focus on cutting out reﬁned grain products like white bread, white pasta and white rice as well as added sugar in the form of baked goods, candies, juice, sodas and sweetened yogurts. Our bodies do best with healthy carbohydrate sources that come in the form of whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes and dairy products. It’s easy to make the switch to healthy carbohydrates: choose sprouted grain bread over white bread, whole grain crackers over snack crackers, brown rice or quinoa over white rice and whole fruit over fruit juice. And remember, the closer the food is to its original state, the better it is for us.
The third main component of complete fuel for our bodies is healthy fat, which provides additional energy, cushions our organs and facilitates the absorption of essential nutrients such as vitamins A, D, E and K. While moderating fat intake is recommended, cutting out fat all together would be deadly. Instead, cut back on unhealthy saturated fats (found in dairy products, most meats and certain tropical oils such as coconut oil) and trans fats (found in hydrogenated margarine and many prepared foods such as chips, crackers, pastries, French fries and donuts). Replace unhealthy fats by using nut butter or avocado as a spread or relying on healthy extra-virgin olive oil for home cooking. What it comes down to is that our bodies need regular doses of premium fuel to be healthy and best prepared for everyday activity and ﬁtness. And it’s easy to get this from whole food sources that we periodically eat throughout the day. Then, whether you’re a Tour De White Rock star or everyday active adult, you still win.

Peace Arch Hospital
Peace Arch Hospital PART 1 IN A 3 PART SERIES
I so often hear stories about how Peace Arch Hospital has changed someone’s life, and how the staff and volunteers have been exceptional. One patient summed it up nicely when he said, “They cared for me with utmost professional courtesy and passion and made me feel like a guest rather than a burden, a number or a patient.”
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, PEACH ARCH HOSPITAL AND COMMUNITY HEALTH FOUNDATION
Thank you, wonderful Peace Arch Hospital!
We have something very special at Peace Arch Hospital. Our hospital is large enough to attract top medical professionals and to offer a good range of services. And it’s small enough to offer care in a setting where people know each other. In the Outpatient Unit, a team of 16 surgeons and GPs perform more than 4,500 procedures a year, including colonoscopies, cataract surgery, removing skin cancers and much more. If you are referred to that unit, you’ll likely meet Nancy Molloy. She is a porter at the Hospital, and smoothly moves patients to and from the Unit with a cheerful greeting and a broad smile. If you need a CT scan, Corinne Plamondon will make sure you are prepped and ready for your time under the scanner.

My name is Amy, and I have had four babies at the Maternity Unit at Peace Arch Hospital (PAH).
was so quick.
When my second baby was born, he was diagnosed with a congenital heart disease called Aortic Stenois. However, if it weren’t for keen ears from the nurses and doctors, who picked up a murmur sound in his heart during routine vital checks, we would never have known of the condition until something serious happened to him.
The birth of my last baby was eventful and one that the nurses won’t soon forget. The baby and I were being closely monitored for heartbeats, movements and contractions while in labor. Suddenly, there was no heartbeat coming through the monitors. I have never in my life seen a team of nurses and doctors rush so quickly from all ends of the Maternity Unit. It was all hands on deck to make sure this baby was safe and wasn’t in any distress. Thankfully -- because of the knowledge that the staff have, quick response and general instincts that they all possess – my son was born with few complications. Today he is a healthy two year old!
He is now 10 years old and has undergone two open-heart surgeries with more to come in the future.
My family is very thankful for the fantastic staff and wonderful treatment we’ve received at Peace Arch Hospital.
Thankfully the next baby was a healthy baby girl. Hers was a very speedy delivery, with one of the nurses having to deliver her because this baby
My mother is a nurse at PAH in the Maternity Unit, so we have a family connection to this hospital. My ﬁrst birthing experience was pretty average and normal. Our baby was healthy and we received excellent care.
If you’re having a baby, you’ll go to the Maternity Unit on the third ﬂoor where Rhonda James has worked since 1988. The babies she helped deliver when she started nursing are now returning to have babies of their own. Those who fall and break a leg, have a heart attack, or are in a car accident may be treated by Dr. Yoshitomi. He has been working in our ER for more than 20 years. If you see red when you arrive at the Hospital and are not looking at the sign above the Emergency Department, you are likely seeing Marie Rougeau, the hospital’s volunteer resources manager, and her team of volunteers (who are dressed in red vests so they are easy to spot). They offer a welcoming hello, help patients ﬁnd their way, and have an amazing ability to be exactly where you need them when you need them. When you stop by the gift shop for a card or a present, you may be greeted by Debbi Anderson, president the Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary Society, which runs the gift shop. Visit the Foundation ofﬁce on a Monday morning, you’ll ﬁnd Gayleen Marshall, our ofﬁce volunteer, answering phones, ﬁling and making sure the hospital’s waiting rooms are well stocked with the Foundation’s brochures and magazines. Peace Arch Hospital is a community hospital, a community of people who care for each other. That’s why I heart Peace Arch Hospital.

Care & Community at Westminster House
s we enter our golden years, the need for customized care becomes more and more important in order to live a full and happy life. For the residents at Westminster House Retirement Community, a team of dedicated and caring staff ensures that specific needs are met and provisions are required in a safe, comfortable and home-like environment. What sets Westminster House apart is its
full wellness approach to care, meaning the staff focuses on not only the physical needs of residents, but their emotional, spiritual and intellectual needs, ensuring that they are comfortable, healthy and happy at every turn. Located in South Surrey/White Rock for more than 22 years, the retirement community follows an aging-in-place philosophy. By offering a wide range of care levels – from independent to assisted living,
complex care (residential care) to even palliative (end-of-life) care – Westminster’s approach allows couples to remain together as their needs change, and also allows residents to stay in their community should their health decline. With so much attention to the needs of residents, it’s no wonder the Westminster House motto is “Rooted in Love – Growing in Community.” see page 17

A healthy smile goes a long way. The beneďŹ ts of a beautiful smile stretch beyond the physical and into the emotional, as men and women with a healthy smile are naturally inclined to feel more conďŹ dent about themselves regardless of their age. In addition to applying a strong adhesive they can trust, denture wearers should take several additional steps to maintain their dentures and keep their smile going strong. Clean your dentures every day. Cleaning dentures daily with a denture brush and soaking them in a cleanser solution will help keep your dentures looking white and bright, while preventing plaque buildup and denture odor. Rinse and brush your dentures in clean, warm water with a denture brush. When cleaning dentures, donâ€™t brush too hard; you donâ€™t want to damage any plastic or metal parts of the dentures. If needed, moisten the denture brush to avoid damages or scratches to the denture surface.
A great smile can add a boost of confidence.
Brush your gums, tongue and natural teeth with a ďŹ‚uoride toothpaste before reinserting your dentures. This will help remove debris from your teeth, stimulate circulation in your mouth and help maintain good oral health. After brushing, rinse with a mouthwash. Mouthwash gives your mouth a refreshed feeling that only adds to denture wearersâ€™ growing conďŹ dence in their smile. Never try to adjust your dentures yourself. This might cause harm to your mouth or damage to your dentures. Only dental professionals should make these adjustments.

Focus on social interaction keeps the mind and heart happy from page 15
Best of all, for residents who prefer to, there is the option of living independently with just the right amount of help, if required. Laundry and housekeeping services are provided, as well as three nutritious and delicious meals prepared on-site by the resident chef, each day. All the daily chores and worries are taken care of for residents. Nurses are on-hand 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and frequent wellness assessments are conducted to ensure residents are in top health. Social interaction & activities Social interaction is a very important component in this seniors’ retirement community. And what better way to stay in shape than participating in a variety of activities. At Westminster House, residents are able to get involved in up to 150 different activities, from tour bus outings and crafts to armchair exercises, hand-chime choir and even in-house bowling, all under the guidance of Recreation

and Volunteer Manager Nancy Armitage. One glance at the activity calendar and it’s clear that Nancy is one busy lady, organizing no fewer than five activities a day for residents to choose from. Nancy ensures there are plenty of fun-filled programs
and activities that take place onsite to ensure that all residents, even those who have a hard time going out of the retirement community, have plenty of things to do. That extra effort is a perfect example of how the staff goes above and beyond to make sure their residents are
happy and fulfilled. Spiritual care Aside from the remarkable activity program, Westminster House’s Christian philosophy is another characteristic that sets it apart from other communities. Two pastoral ministers
provide an in-house service every Sunday morning at the on-site chapel, as well as Bible study on Fridays. The multi-denominational residence also offers hymn sings, pastoral visitations and a television broadcast of the Sunday morning service at White Rock Baptist Church, located next door. Other perks of life at Westminster House include an in-house professional hair salon to keep residents looking their best and frequent visits from a foot-care nurse, massage therapist, physiotherapist, optometrist and dietician to offer care to residents in the comfort of their own home. On any given day, residents can grab a delicious cup of coffee or tea from the Cozy Corner Coffee Shop, which looks out onto a lush garden patio, and chat with friends while enjoying the weather. With a wide spectrum of care services – as well as the fun, engaging and welcoming atmosphere created by staff and residents alike – Westminster House is the ideal home for seniors who are looking to spend their golden years in a place that feels like home, surrounded by friends.

BC Housingâ€™s new Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) program helps lowincome B.C. seniors and people with disabilities make home modiďŹ cations that will allow them to continue living at home. Through HAFI, homeowners and landlords with eligible tenants can apply for ďŹ nancial assistance of up to $20,000 for improvements that make their home more accessible and safe. The goal of the program is to enable people who have physical limitations to live at home longer. Peopleâ€™s physical needs change over time â€“ sometimes, a small improvement to a home can make the difference between being able to live independently or not. Types of eligible projects include: ĂŁ +andrails in hallways or stairways, ĂŁ 5DPSVIRUHDVHRIDFFHVV ĂŁ (DV\WRUHDFKZRUNRUVWRUDJH areas in the kitchen, ĂŁ /HYHUKDQGOHVRQGRRUV ĂŁ :DONLQVKRZHUVZLWKJUDE bars, and ĂŁ %DWKWXEJUDEEDUVDQGVHDWV The projects must be permanent and ďŹ xed to the home, although exceptions can be made for equipment that gives access to an existing part of the home (e.g. a bath lift). /DXQFKHGLQ-DQXDU\+$),

is funded by the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia through the CanadaB.C. Affordable Housing Initiative. Through the HAFI SURJUDP million in grants or forgivable loans will be distributed to qualifying B.C. residents over the next three years. To qualify for assistance from HAFI, recipients must be a lowincome senior or person with a disability, a Canadian citizen or landed immigrant, and a B.C. resident. Someone in the household must have a permanent disability or loss of ability that makes it difďŹ cult to perform
day-to-day activities. As well, the total household income and assets must be below a certain limit. BC Housing can tell you the income and house value limits for your area when you apply. The program is open to both homeowners and those living in market rental accommodation where rents are at the low end of market levels; landlords must apply for improvements on behalf of eligible tenants.

Stay active in your golden years with hobbies Whether retirement is on the horizon or has already begun, more free time equates to an increased opportunity to ﬁll your days with enjoyable activities. Individuals facing busy schedules are often forced to push hobbies to the sidelines, as more pressing things, such as a job, household responsibilities and parenting tasks, are accomplished. Once retirement arrives, a newfound freedom in your schedule may occur, and there can be plenty of hours to devote to the hobbies and pastimes you ﬁnd enjoyable. According to research, hobbies can have many beneﬁts. They may serve as an emotional outlet or a way to relax. Hobbies can keep the mind and hands active. They also allow for quiet time and mind wandering – which
can free up creative thinking. Hobbies can also serve as a means to connecting with people and opening up new groups of friends. There are many hobbies you can consider, depending on physical health and abilities. These may be hobbies you once enjoyed in the past or new activities to expand your horizons. And hobbies need not be crafty in the traditional sense, just about any activity – even being a mentor – can be a form of a hobby. Starting a hobby When deciding on a hobby, ﬁrst take an inventory of your skills and interests. If you have always been handy around wood and construction, perhaps a woodworking hobby will be enjoyable and also may work as a source of income.Other activities that require the
use of the hands and mind include knitting, needlepoint, painting, puzzles, quilting, scrapbooking and crocheting. These can keep the mind active and improve dexterity and ﬁne motor skills. Next, you may want to consider the costs surrounding a hobby. While something like taking photos may have relatively low costs, collectibles, exotic sports, sports cars and travel could become expensive. It's important to weigh the costs against your ﬁnances to ensure that you will be ﬁnancially comfortable while engaging in this particular hobby. Explore what your friends are doing. If you want to get into a new hobby, ask neighbours and friends what they do to keep busy – and try it out. You just may ﬁnd

that you're naturally inclined to do this type of activity and enjoy it. Visit a local hobby shop or craft store and browse through the aisles. See where your attention is drawn and give that activity a try. From building model trains to cultivating an herb garden,
there are dozens of ideas to try. Once a hobby is started, it is not set in stone. If you ﬁnd you do not feel motivated to do it, try something else. Remember, the days are now yours to ﬁll, so maximize time spent with activities you can enjoy.

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

The Mariners have not allowed a point in their last two games, shutting out the Robert Bateman Timberwolves in the Fraser Valley final before Saturday’s result at Brentwood College. “It’s huge. We’ve been preaching defence to our guys all season, and now they’ve really stepped up and it’s nice to see,” Roberts said. “Against Cowichan, we defended our goal line really well. We were strong across the board.” Roberts was especially pleased with the defensive play of locks Doug Fairbank and Grade 11 Kai Duchnycz. “Kai was coming forward and stuffing everyone at the goal line. Him and Doug, they were our engine back there,” the coach said. Roberts also said Ian McMaster had “his best game of the season,” and helped EMS jump out to an early lead – the Mariners scored three times in the first seven minutes. “Every time we touched the ball, we were electric… if we catch a team sleeping, we can have a go at anyone,” Roberts said.
Cutest Pet CONTEST
With a victory Saturday over Nelson’s L.V. Rogers Secondary, the Southridge Storm have already guaranteed that they’ll at least tie the school’s best-ever performance at BC High School AA Rugby Championships. The Storm, seeded 10th in the 16-team tourney, defeated No. 7 L.V. Rogers 28-7 last weekend in Kelowna, meaning they can finish no worst than eighth in the province, tying a school-best mark. They now face their toughest test of the season – a quarter-final date with No. 2-seeded Brentwood College Wednesday in Abbotsford. Storm coach Paul Doig called his squad “a heavy underdog” heading into the match, adding that Brentwood is good enough to give most of the province’s top AAA teams a run for their money. “They’re strong, ❝It’s all about for sure, and we’re realistic, but it’s all confidence, about confidence, and and we have we have that now after that now.❞ our win in Kelowna,” he said. Paul Doig The winner of Southridge Wednesday’s match will move on to the final four bracket, while the loser will battle for positions five through eight. Against Rogers, the Storm – who have a Grade 11-heavy roster – got tries from Sean Quinn, Max Ferguson and Alex Dobbie, while Grade 10 fullback Tim Stephens had 13 points, with three penalty kicks and two conversions. Southridge’s man-of-the-match was prop Anaahat Dhanju, who Doig said “just dominated in the scrummaging.” Southridge has not played Brentwood this season, but lost to them in the first round of provincials last year, 50-7. “But it’s a different crew for us this time,” noted Doig, who added that his team will need to play a speed game against their much-bigger opponents if they are to enjoy any success. “We have a lot of skill, just not a lot of size, and Brentwood has both. They probably have guys up front who outweigh our guys by 20, 30 even 40 pounds, so we’re going to have to move the ball to our backs and get them running.” The game kicks off at 11 a.m. - Nick Greenizan

Earl Marriott girls win soccer title
Victorious at Fraser Valleys Earl Marriott Secondaryâ€™s Grade 8/9 girls soccer team are champions of the Fraser Valley, after a 2-1 victory over Langleyâ€™s Brookswood Bobcats Thursday at South Surrey Athletic Park. Marriott â€“ which has a roster made up solely of Grade 8s while Brookswood field an all-Grade 9 squad â€“ fell behind 1-0 early on a Brookswood first-half goal, but battled back just before halftime on a goal from Savanna Tsuruda, who was set up on a nice pass from teammate Lauren Hamilton. In the second half,
EMS sweeper MariePhilippe LaRocheNadeau helped anchor the South Surrey schoolâ€™s defence, which held the fort until Cali Burgin put Earl Marriott up 2-1 with just 15 minutes left in the game. The victory for Earl Marriott capped an undefeated season for the Grade 8 girls. In semifinals, which were held May 22, EMS defeated Delview 2-1, and in quarter-finals, beat Langleyâ€™s R.E. Mountain 3-0, with goals from Emily Dobson, Lauren Jennings and Georgia Cavannah. - Nick Greenizan

Wilma June Carter passed away peacefully at Surrey Memorial Hospital with loved ones
She is survived by her companion, Tom, her step-brother Owen, her daughter, Gail, her son, Doug and 3 grandchildren. Wilma loved to travel the world and enjoyed the warmth of the Arizona and Hawaiian sun. A Celebration of Life will take place at Chelsea Gardens, Fireside Lounge on Friday, June 1st from 1:00pm-3:00pm.
Weldon, Shirley Kathleen (nĂŠe Crosby) 1928 - 2012 I have left you now. Remember me fondly and know that I loved you. I lived a wonderful life, the kind a young girl might dream of. I was born in Toronto and had a lot of fun as a kid growing up in Princeton and Vancouver. I did well in school, graduated with honours from UBC, and became a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. I re-entered the work force once my children were selfsufďŹ cient and retired as the assistant to the vice-president at BCIT. I loved all types of recreation, including running, skiing, tennis, boating and especially singing out-of-tune around a campďŹ re. Then I began to forget the words to the songs. In my later years, dementia took over. Some might say I suffered from Alzheimer's. But I didn't. Those who loved me suffered; I simply ebbed. Thanks to the efforts of my loving family, particularly my husband, I was fortunate to complete my life in the comfort of my own home where I had lived for the past 30 years. I am survived by my husband of 58 years Richard Chapman IV; sons Richard Chapman V (Avril) and Gordon Calhoun (Hanh); grandchildren Heather and Derek (Ayako); greatgrandchildren Sarah and Sean, siblings Ann, Louis, Laurence and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. I was predeceased by parents Michael Gabriel (Gabe) and Mary Isabel (Molly); and siblings Lillian, Jim, Patricia, Eleanor and Ken. I requested there be no funeral service. A gathering of family and friends will be held at a later date. In lieu of ďŹ‚owers, please consider a donation to my friends at the Alzheimer's Society of BC or Dying With Dignity. Their work will go a long way to helping future generations.
DAVIS, Robert Louis Sept. 19, 1921 March 27, 2012 Robert (Bert) Davis, 90, passed away on March 27 at Royal Columbian Hospital.
Bert was born in Elm Springs, Sask. and raised in Wood Mountain. His father, Henry Davis, was a rancher / farmer from Gonzales County, Texas and his mother, Bessie Davis (nee Wilson), was a school teacher from Elk Mountain, South Dakota. As a young boy on the prairies, Bert spent much of his time trapping, hunting, farming and riding on horseback. In 1940 Bert joined the Seaforth Highlanders Regiment. During WWII he served in Canada and Europe. After the war he lived in Edmonton, Alberta where he worked as a professional photographer and real estate appraiser and enjoyed hunting and playing golf and Whist in his spare time. In the early 1970â€™s he moved to the Okanagan Valley where he started his own real estate development company and enjoyed birding, camping and fishing. He later retired in the White Rock area and remained active and independent until his last days as a voracious reader and inspirational health enthusiast who always looked forward to playing bridge with his friends.

Business should be excellent for you at the moment if you work in sales. You’re a great negotiator and can close a sale to your advantage.
Mars has been in Virgo for some time now, so it’s possible that your vitality is dwindling. Don’t allow yourself to neglect your need for sleep, and take care to eat a healthier diet.
You will need to define your feelings more precisely if you’re in a new relationship. Emotions aren’t always easy to cope with in a working environment.
One of your friends may invite you to participate in some interesting activities. Perhaps you should also take the time to relax and go to a spa or some sort of wellness centre.

You’ll spend part of this week coordinating family matters. Perhaps a bit of discipline will also be necessary for the younger ones. You feel the need for a lasting peace.
CANCER You don’t feel at a loss for words this week. As you tend to say everything you think, you will help make certain situations more equitable.
LEO Even though you like a bit of luxury, you are also capable of controlling any impulsive shopping. You could decide to organize a very profitable garage sale.
VIRGO You will be faced with a situation that will require a swift reaction. If this happens at work, your response will be noted and a good promotion or bonus will result.
You may have to take over the role of leader without being fully prepared. You will have to manage a considerable sum of money, whether this is at work or in a volunteer organization.
It’s time to plan your next vacation. However, don’t be surprised if you’re offered the chance to take part in an interesting project that would be very profitable for you during this time.
You will need to make a few adjustments at work as well as in your personal life. You could embark on a new path through life, most likely in the company of your loved one.
Your family situation could take an unusual turn. Perhaps a birth has to be planned for or elderly parents are in need of you.
