Limited success as Surrey staff and RCMP attempt to thwart thieves

Copper robbers cost city $2.8 million Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Skyrocketing wire theft in Surrey cost taxpayers $2.8 million last year, a record high year copper theft in the city. The cost of repair is equivalent to the annual taxes on 28 square blocks of homes in Surrey and it has city staff and council scrambling to stop the bleed. The $2.8 million in damages last year more than doubles the $1.2 million the year prior, and eclipses anything before that.

Part of the problem is the growing value of copper, which last year was $3.85 a pound – 85 cents more than the year prior. A chart contained in a corporate report to council Monday shows the amount of theft loosely follows the market price of copper. “Due to the historical high price of copper and extensive network of street lights across the city, full protection of the system is very challenging,” writes engineering manager Vincent Lalonde. The city has implemented myriad strate-

gies to stop wire thieves in their tracks, but so far, many have been fairly unsuccessful. “Since 2006, over 4,000 of the city’s 29,000 street light poles have been fitted with locking or security bolt handle covers at the locations where theft has been prevalent,” Lalonde writes. “This has had limited success.” Surrey staff are now exploring the idea of using aluminum wire instead of copper, making it less attractive to steal. In addition, the city will be stamping the insulation jacket with “Property of the City

of Surrey” to make prosecution easier. RCMP and bylaws are also working on several measures that include public awareness and monitoring metal recyclers. Over the past six years, wire thieves have cost Surrey taxpayers $6.8 million. “The cost to businesses and taxpayers is phenomenal,” said Coun. Barinder Rasode. Rasode noted the city has shut down a number of scrap dealers that bought stolen wire, and said any more that get caught will also be put out of business.

Finance Minister Kevin Falcon, MLA for Surrey-Cloverdale, unveils the BC Liberals’ budget at a Tuesday afternoon press conference in Victoria.

Province tightens spending, postpones tax break for small business

Muted response to ‘lacklustre’ budget Dan Ferguson, Tom Fletcher & Kevin Diakiw Black Press

The president of the South Surrey and White Rock Chamber of Commerce says local businesses may not be enthusiastic supporters of the provincial government’s tight-fisted budget, but they do agree with it. Gary Hollick was reacting to the restraint budget unveiled by BC Liberal Finance Minister Kevin Falcon Tuesday afternoon in Victoria. In a bid to balance the provincial budget by 2013, Falcon, MLA for Surrey-Cloverdale, has tightened spending, postponed a previously promised tax break for small business and

warned the government may hike corporate taxes. Falcon also announced health care premiums will rise and announced plans to privatize liquor distribution and sell off so-called surplus land. First-time new-home buyers will be eligible for a tax break of up to $10,000 and seniors can get a tax break of up to $1,000 to renovate their homes. Hollick said most chamber members he spoke with view the budget as “lacklustre”, which is preferable to a more “flamboyant” approach that could cost the province its credit rating. “I think they were very responsible,” Hollick

told Peace Arch News. Chamber executive director Cliff Annable said most local business people are not happy about the decision to keep the 2.5 per cent small business tax the Liberals had promised to eliminate, but they understand the situation the government is in. “Someone’s got to pay the bills … if we want to have our education and health care,” Annable said. The Surrey Board of Trade was more critical, saying the government was irresponsible to take $70 million away from advanced education. Board of Trade CEO Anita Huberman said  see page 4

A new summer festival, timed to take place after the Tour de White Rock and before the Spirit of the Sea Festival, was approved by White Rock council this week. Janice Savage, organizer of the July 21-22 “White Rock International Music Festival” on the waterfront, expects it will draw 2,000 people, an estimate at least one council member thought is low. “We could could probably draw that with a day-care kazoo band,” Coun. Larry Robinson Janice Savage said Monday. Savage, owner festival organizer of Beyond Scarlett Arts & Entertainment, told council that the annual festival is intended to complement the Spirit of the Sea, not compete with it. “Hopefully, we’re going to enhance it,” said Savage, the 2010 chairperson of the Spirit festival and music organizer for the event from 2008 to 2010. The White Rock International Music Festival is to run from 1-10 p.m. on the Saturday and 1-9 p.m. on the Sunday, with a range of family-friendly performances on a single stage that include classical, rock, jazz and other acts.

news Fraser Health forced seniors to move

Ombudsperson chides broken promises Jeff Nagel Black Press

B.C.’s Ombudsperson is scolding Fraser Health for forcing seniors to move from a Surrey care home in 2009, despite written assurances they could stay. Kim Carter concluded the health authority treated residents at Newton Regency care home unfairly when it reneged on its earlier 2008 promise that they would not have to leave their temporarily funded beds. “A commitment voluntarily made by a public agency is something which should be taken seriously and that people should be able to rely on,” Carter said. Fraser Health agreed to apologize to the affected 39 seniors and their families. Carter’s investigation was triggered after three families complained to the Ombudsperson’s office. Fraser was closing temporarily funded beds in care homes in 2009 to save money as part of budget restraint and decided it could

no longer wait for beds to empty through attrition. It left upset and concerned residents with a difficult choice: Move to a care facility they didn’t want that had a space; wait for a bed to open up at a different facility they preferred; move back into the community with home support; or pay much more for a private bed at Newton Regency. Residents at the time complained of “callous, bullying” treatment that left them in smaller rooms or different care homes, in some cases far from spouses or families who had chosen to live near Newton Regency. Carter’s report said Fraser Health could not explain what it did, if anything, to assess the health and safety risks the move might pose to the dozens of frail and elderly residents. “We were, however, provided information on how public/media/political risks were assessed for closings of temporarily funded beds at specific facilities,” Carter noted. Her report said most of 331 residents in

Carter concluded the plan to cut funding at Newton Regency was “administratively convenient and cost-effective” for Fraser but was not flexible enough for residents, who were given 49 days to get out. In her report, titled “Honouring Com-

mitments”, Carter issued a series of seven recommendations. Besides issuing an apology, she recommends Fraser provide at least 60 days notice of decisions to stop funding beds and ensure operators give notice. Residents should also be informed if an offered placement is permanent or temporary and the difference should be explained. Fraser Health CEO Dr. Nigel Murray said in a response letter the authority accepts the recommendations and has implemented most of them. He said cutting nearly $160 million from Fraser’s budget in 2009 had “very significant and personal impacts” on residents. Residents placed in temporarily funded beds are now told of the implications when they are placed. NDP public health critic Guy Gentner said it was “reprehensible” to treat seniors as Newton Regency “as though they are chattel moved about like furniture.”

Dog hit, driver flees

Accused assails system

Speed fears

Olson back in court Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

The South Surrey owners of a dog injured by a hit-and-run driver last week say the incident should raise concerns about the threat speeding cars pose to children and seniors living on 27 Avenue near 160 Street. Max, a three-year-old purebred Boxer, suffered multiple fractures to his right rear leg when he was hit Thursday (Feb. 16) around 7 p.m. in front of a nearly-completed new playground for small children, a few doors away from a seniors’ residence. Oliver Grossert said it happened seconds after he parked his truck in front of the townhouse where he and spouse Rachel Redfern live with their young son and daughter. Grossert said he opened the door of his parked Ford F350 and Max jumped out, just in time to be hit by an oncoming car. Grossert said he heard a vehicle approaching from behind, but didn’t realize how fast until Max got hit. It appeared to be a white Mercedes with a black top, driven by a middle-aged woman with glasses. “I looked right at her,” Grossert said. “She nailed him and kept going.” The impact sent Max flying about five metres in front of the car, which Grossert said kept on coming. Max was able to scramble out of the way on three legs. He required emergency surgery that installed eight pins and two titanium plates. His owners have been told it will be a year before Max could be back to normal, and only after intensive physiotherapy. They have to ice his bruised and swollen leg and massage it several

Max’s surgery cost $4,000 and Grossert and Redfern have been told the bill will likely go up another $2,000 for physio. Redfern says speeding is a daily, sometimes hourly, occurrence on 27 Avenue, with drivers going well over the residential speed limit of 50 km/h.

“This road is just ridiculous,” Redfern said. “I’ve never seen so many speeders.” A few months ago, residents of the townhouse complex the family lives in sent a petition to city hall asking for speed bumps on the road to slow traffic. Under Canadian law, a hit and run involving a dog is not considered a criminal offence unless there is evidence the person responsible

did it deliberately. Since dogs are considered property similar to farm livestock, the owners of an injured animal can sue for compensation. Grossert and Redfern are trying to track down the person responsible for injuring their family pet. Anyone with information that could assist them is asked to email the family at: senorita_rachel@ hotmail.com

More charges will soon be laid against a White Rock woman charged with multiple dog-theftrelated offences. Janet Olson, founder of A Better Life Dog Rescue, was told the additional charges will be laid by the end of this week or early next week. “I heard there were charges coming,” Olson said outside Surrey Provincial Court after she made a brief appearance Tuesday. “I’ve been arrested four times now, because they ❝This is will put one more charge on me, arrest what 14 for me it, and then constables another charge on are doing me, arrest me for it.” Olson was one of while sex two women arrested offenders last November in go free.❞ connection with what Janet Olson police described as “an elaborate dog-theft investigation” after allegations that a rescue group was stealing dogs from backyards across the Lower Mainland. At the time, police said investigators observed Olson and co-accused Louise Reid enter a Coquitlam backyard and walk away with a bulldog named Samson. Other charges have been laid in connection with alleged incidents in White Rock, Surrey, Richmond and Abbotsford. Olson said her lawyer is pressing the prosecutor’s office to disclose how the police came to witness the Coquitlam incident. She said she has heard three different police versions of events, ranging from continuing surveillance to a tip. “This is what 14 constables are doing while sex offenders go free,” Olson said. “I’m hoping the public will see the absurdity of this and understand that the priorities are all screwed up.” Olson’s next court appearance is set for March 7 in Surrey.

news Budget only helps the wealthy: Federation of Labour president

Buyers, builders get boost Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – Finance Minister Kevin Falcon found money in his restraint budget Tuesday to boost home building and renovations. First-time buyers are eligible for up to $10,000, but only if they buy a new home. That follows a harmonized sales tax break announced last week, which raises the threshold for an HST rebate on new homes from $525,000 to $850,000. The HST rebate was also extended to the

purchase of new vacation homes, offered until the HST reverts to the old provincial sales tax in March, 2013. Falcon also announced a seniors’ home renovation tax credit offers up to $1,000 for upgrades and modifications that allow seniors to remain in their homes. B.C. Federation of Labour president Jim Sinclair blasted the housing bonus, which he said goes mainly to wealthy people who can afford new homes, while government services for other

needs can’t keep up. “Right now we have the smallest public sector in the country, so obviously we’re struggling to meet those services,” Sinclair said. “The message of this budget is, if you’re the one per cent, we’re going to take care of you, we’re going to make sure you’re well off. And by the way, if you want to buy your second vacation home in Whistler, we’re going to give you a tax deduction for that up to 10 grand.”

Falcon’s target for growth ‘unrealistic’  from page 1 the fiscally conservative direction is responsible, but cutting higher learning is “not acceptable.” NDP finance critic Bruce Ralston called Falcon’s target of two per cent spending growth for three years “unrealistic,” and said it was a political gesture motivated by two looming by-elections this year and a full general election next year. Ralston (Surrey-Whalley) scoffed at the proposal to increase the general corporate income tax rate by a point, but not until April 2014 and only if the government

still needs the money by then. “I don’t think they have any real intention of using that kind of taxation to meet the real revenue needs of the province,” Ralston said. Ralston also questioned the move to sell surplus provincial land, citing Falcon’s example of a Surrey property purchased 15 years ago as a potential hospital site. The property on Number 10 Highway has seen residential and commercial development grow up around it, and it’s being liquidated to raise money.

Surrey may well need a hospital site in 15 to 20 years in addition to the expansion underway at Surrey Memorial Hospital, and acquiring another one will be much more expensive, Ralston said. The Council of Senior Citizens’ Organizations of B.C. (COSCO) called the budget “a major disappointment” for seniors that earmarks an inadequate $15 million for non-medical home support “It is sad that the B.C. government has again proved itself to be penny wise and dollar foolish,” COSCO president Art Kube said.

news White Rock church comfortable in new location

Taking a leap of faith Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

It’s been more than a year since members of the First Church of Christ, Scientist, made the tough decision to sell the site they’d occupied for nearly 60 years. “There was some reluctance,� Lyn Drake recalled of the fall 2010 move to offer the 1174 Fir St. property to the City of White Rock. “And, of course, change is also challenging. “But we’re really pleased with this little place. We were looking for cosy and we got it.� Standing in the lobby of the new and decidedly smaller Christian Science Spiritual Resource Centre, at 15242 Russell Ave., Drake is surrounded by the smell of freshly laid carpet and warmth emanating from a nearby gas fireplace. Various books line a series of shelves, near a trio of easy chairs arranged by the fireplace. “We just wanted to make a place that was inviting.� Behind Drake stretches a central room for church services, complete with chairs and an organ; and beyond that, a third room for Sunday school, executive board meetings and other get-togethers. All together, the space is less than a third of the approximately 3,500 square feet that the congregation had at the Fir Street location. Any doubt that it may have been the wrong move, however, is long gone. Finding a way to meet the needs of the community in a more welcoming manner was one of the goals of the church membership when the decision to sell was made, Drake said. The previous location, next to White Rock’s RCMP detachment, had made the church “too reclusive,� she said. On Russell Avenue, within days of holding their first Sunday service Jan. 29, a change was seen. “We’ve had more conversations with the public than we ever imagined,� writes Gina McMurchyBarber in a statement celebrating the new home. “Simply put, the public seems

Followers believe in one all-loving God, and that Jesus’s teachings and healing work were based on scientific laws. Drake, a South Surrey resident, was raised in Christian Science, and credits it to “many� healing experiences she has seen and felt in her life. She emphasized the resource centre is not restricted to Christian Science followers. “Anyone and everyone� is welcome, she said. “We’re not into proselytizing or converting. We really want people to know that this is for the community. “Doesn’t matter what your religion is or what your beliefs are. If you’re looking for a quiet place to read, and pray, this might be the spot for you.� The centre is open 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday and Saturdays. Sunday services are held at 10 a.m.; there are also meetings

Old site, new plans Exactly what the future holds for the church’s former site has not been decided. The city paid $1.6 million for it, a move that completed its ownership of the entire block where its city hall, police and fire departments sit; after leasing it back to the church for just over a year, they took full possession this month. The intention is to add the property to “the civic precinct,� acting city manager Dennis Back said Friday. In the short term, using the building for office and other space is among possibilities being considered, he said. “The church building is ideally located to meet some of those needs,� Back said. “We have had some preliminary discussions around the possibilities, but it would be premature to say what they are. “This is something that will get some attention in the near future, including discussion with council.� – Tracy Holmes Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. For information, call 604-5369511 or email whiterockreadingroom@telus.net

Have Liberals ‘lost the room?’

T

here is a deadly moment in sports that occurs when someone is said to have “lost the room.” A coach will be trying to fire up a team to win with a locker-room speech, only to realize the players are tuning him out. They simply don’t care. Losing the room, experts say, is a consequence of losing trust. People stop believing what the coach or manager is saying. Then, they stop believing in the person. And finally, they stop listening. When that happens, there isn’t much a leader can do to win their audience back. But Premier Christy Clark is giving it a shot. Halving inherited a troubled, controversyracked party that is down in the polls, she needs to fire up supporters if she’s going to win the next election. That means finding a way to rally Liberal backers, and what better way to wind up the troops than a restraint-minded provincial budget? Unfortunately for the Liberals, even their most die-hard supporters seem unable to muster more than a tepid message of support. Locally, Gary Hollick, the president of the South Surrey and White Rock Chamber of Commerce said local businesses were not especially enthusiastic supporters of the budget. Hollick used the word “lacklustre” to describe it, and though he added that was preferable to a “flamboyant” approach that would boost government spending and debt at a potential risk to the province’s credit rating, the lack of enthusiasm was apparent. Ditto for chamber executive director Cliff Annable, who made the budget – including the Liberals’ decision to keep the 2.5 per cent small business tax they had promised to eliminate sound like a bitter-tasting medicine. While chamber members were not happy about it, local business people understand the situation the government is in, he noted. “Someone’s got to pay the bills,” Annable said. Not quite a yay-team moment. Even worse from a Liberal standpoint, there has been a decided lack of heat from the usual critics, with the opposition NDP’s Bruce Ralston adopting more of a scoffing, eyes-rolled-to-theceiling tone in his comments than the indignant outrage usually reserved for such moments. When both your supporters and your opponents are barely paying you attention, you’re in a lot of trouble. Coaches and managers in that position usually end up fired.

Should Internet providers provide customers’ information to police in a bid to combat child pornography?

yes 55% no 45% 139 responding helped to reduce deaths, injuries and threats to the public safety from the criminal use of firearms. So why did we blow in excess of $2 billion of taxpayers’ money on a program with such obvious shortcomings and dubious value? Because it was largely a PC (politically correct) initiative launched by a Liberal goverment in response to public fear of gun violence, especially following the 1989 massacre of largely female students at École Polytechnique in Montreal. Sadly, since then, there have been other rampages by deranged gunmen, some using legally obtained firearms. The gun registry couldn’t prevent those tragedies. Meanwhile, the far more common gun violence, often committed on public streets as we’ve witnessed here in Abbotsford, has been perpetrated by people who ignore all laws, including those governing guns. One can only imagine how much less gun-related violence this country would have seen in the past 15 years if laws had been toughened to lock up the real guntoting criminals for long sentences, and that $2 billion had been invested in law enforcement initiatives. It’s all money up in smoke now (assuming the senate does its rubberstamping). After last week’s vote, the Conservative MPs were apparently celebrating too, at a cocktail reception with pro-gun lobbyists. That’s the political equivalent of shooting into the air. Not exactly statesmanlike. Geez, even I know that. Andrew Holota is editor of the Abbotsford News.

They keep us in the dark Editor: I was just wondering why, with all the taxes that I have paid to this city for the last 20 years, I can’t seem to get two streetlight bulbs fixed. The corner where we live – at Kent Street and Thrift Avenue – is pitch black most nights, due to these lights on opposite corners repeatedly going out every few minutes. I have called the city three times about it, and day after day nothing is done. I have told them where we live and how dangerous this could be. A month later, nothing has been done. We live very close to the Kent Street seniors activity centre, and they have evening events going on. Imagine those seniors driving home at 10 p.m. having absolutely no light at that corner. Linda Maloney, White Rock

It’s time to put our foot down Editor: Re: No support for dogs on promenade, Feb. 9. It was a semi-sunny Sunday morning and I had just finished my walk at the White Rock beach front. Unfortunately, I stepped in dog feces on the sidewalk just outside an East Beach restaurant. I was able to avoid the previous pile I had encountered in the middle of the sidewalk on the hump 10 minutes earlier, but in this case the main blob had been tracked out to a larger area and now it is embedded in the treads of my runners.

Who would allow their dogs to take a dump in the middle of a sidewalk on Marine Drive? Or in front of a restaurant? Who would allow their dog to defecate in the middle of the sidewalk on George Street, less than half a block from White Rock Elementary? There it was last Wednesday, waiting to be tracked into one of the classrooms. This is not a new problem. I have been walking to and from the beach for the last 20 years, and have always been astounded by the amount of dog feces I see on the sidewalks along Marine Drive and Columbia Avenue, in particular. Maybe some people find it on their lawn and then flick it off their property onto the sidewalk. Sometimes it is in the middle of the pier tracked along by some unsuspecting tourist for about 20 feet. Sometimes it has been deposited in a plastic bag and tucked into the branches of a hedge. People who know me are aware of my love for dogs. We often visit the

walk along Dallas Road in Victoria where thousands enjoy the park with their dogs on- and off-leash each day, and you never see any feces. Why is it that dog owners in Victoria, Comox and other communities on Vancouver Island can be responsible and pick up after their dogs, and so many people in White Rock can not? Gerry Busby, Surrey Q I am sure most residents of White Rock are fed up with the ongoing dog walking on the White Rock promenade and pier. On any given day – particularly Saturdays and Sundays – who wants to watch someone picking up dog poo while walking along? Children dash back and forth as adults walk the walk. Parents pushing baby carriages, etc. do not see any of this stuff in their path. White Rock City Hall, this is one stand that you have to put your foot down and once and for all say no! J. Boyes, White Rock

My wait’s over, but list goes on An open letter to Fraser Health. Just to inform you that I had my MRI test done at Peace Arch Hospital at 2 p.m. on Feb. 8 and did not have to wait until September, and for this I am grateful. This was due to a cancellation. The staff were very pleasant and efficient and the experience was satisfactory. However, I am still dismayed by the original stated wait time of eight months that I would have had to endure if a cancellation had not come along as it did. I presume there are still people on that wait list that are passively accepting this still-ridiculous period. Your patient-care-quality officer did call me a week back promising to have someone get back to me within the week and explain the state of affairs and what you will be doing to address the situation. I still expect this communication. Ivan Scott, Surrey

Fitness can be free at the park Editor: On Saturday, Feb. 11, as I was walking around the track at Centennial Park in White Rock, I observed a bylaw officer putting parking tickets on two cars as a soccer game ended. Parents have their children in soccer because of the many benefits, such as exercise, while learning skills, sportsmanship and camaraderie. The parking meters are not expensive but the tickets are, so I would like to inform parents and others who do not have a White Rock parking decal that they can park on 146 Street just off 16 Avenue in Surrey and walk a block or two to the soccer field. For those who like to walk, the track has been refinished, so it is easier on the feet and joints. We

Leashing dogs in public protects people, other animals and the teathered dog itself, writes Nicole Burgert.

Lead by example, dog owners Editor: This letter is a plea to dog owners. Please leash your dog when you are out with them. The plea is simple, and it’s the law. From the extremely high frequency of off-leash dogs that we see, it seems clear that many well-intentioned owners have lost sight of the very good reasons these laws are in place. For me, there is a personal reason for making this plea. First, here are some of the reasons why all First World countries have dog-leash laws. In the U.S., in 2007, dog bites cost insurers $356.2 million. Dog-bite injuries now account for a third of all homeowners-insurance liability claims. The potential liability to cities can be substantial, far exceeding any licensing or ‘dog walk tourism’ revenue. According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control, dogs bite nearly 4.7 million people in the U.S. each year, and nearly 900,000 – half of them children – require medical attention. The body part most often affected is the face, 40.5 per cent. Dog bites are the fifth most frequent cause of child visits to emergency rooms. In Canada, between 1990-2007, there were 28 fatal dog attacks reported; 24 were children under the age of 12. On average, 42 Canadians are bitten by a dog every hour. Almost all of these bites were inflicted by dogs that had never bitten anyone before. The vast majority of owners were shocked that their dogs could ever do this. Most had their dogs put down after they bit once. They were good dogs up to that point. ‘Bad’ dogs are the rare exception, not the rule, where dog bites are concerned. Please understand that, as a parent of four children, I cannot possibly get to know every dog we meet to make judgment as to the safety of my children around them.

When my husband was young, Great Blue Herons were frequently seen along the beach in White Rock. He used to laugh the odd time he saw a dog chasing one into the air. We can’t remember when the last time was that we saw one down there. I do clearly recall running into several off-leash dogs during every single recent visit. I’ve noticed there are dog-walking websites that actually give a rating to each park based on “exciting wildlife such as bunnies or squirrels.” I fail to understand how purported animal lovers can justify indulging their dogs’ instincts by terrifying or maiming wildlife. The incidence of dogs being mauled by off-leash dogs has reached unprecedented proportions. The torment being inflicted upon loving, law-abiding dog owners by those who feel they are above the law is truly troubling. Then there is the reason that inspired me to write this: Two years ago, my children had just finished playing at Ruth Johnson Park, and we were walking across the grass toward North Bluff Road. We noticed a man walking his off-leash black lab past the “Pets must be leashed” sign at the fitness track, so we waited for him to pass. He walked to the crosswalk at 146 Street, and before he could push the button, his dog trotted onto North Bluff. We watched in horror: the screech, the impact, the thump as his mangled companion landed near the far sidewalk, the indescribable wailing of the twisted, dying dog as the driver fell to her knees, crying at its side. It all happened so fast. I’ll never forget the looks in the eyes of my children as I pulled them away. We all love our animals, and we are responsible for the pets that we choose to enrich our lives with. Do the right thing. Abide by the law. Please, leash your dogs. Nicole Burgert, White Rock

The decision Feb. 6, however, was to have staff review the bylaw, and to include the issue as a topic in an April community forum. Meyer said Friday he has been brainstorming and “bouncing ideas” off people for how to meet the need for increased access, specifically, a dog park. Two places comes to mind, Meyer said: property on 148 Street that is owned by Epcor, and Maccaud Park, on Kent Street. As well, a few people have suggested the city initiate conversations with the Semiahmoo First Nation to see if access to some of their land can be negotiated. He encouraged people who have thoughts on those options, or ideas of their own, to contact him at 604-345-1641 or gmeyer@ whiterockcity.ca

An Invitation To A Public Open House You are invited to a public Open House to provide input on the second phase of a feasibility study for the development of a Sports, Arts, Culture and Harmony Centre in Newton. The centre would provide facility space available to the entire community including multi-purpose rooms, culture and heritage interpretation display areas, gymnasiums, fitness rooms, a restaurant and day care. Staff and consultants will be on hand to receive community feedback. The first phase of the feasibility study researched a proposal to develop a community centre on lands at Princess Margaret Park. A public Open House was held in November 2011 to present this proposal to the community. Since that Open House, Council has directed staff to investigate other possible sites for the centre. Staff and consultants have researched two other possible sites at Unwin Park and on City owned lands in Newton Town Centre. Plans and information for the feasibility of the three locations will be on display at the Open House. Date and Location 6:00 – 8:00pm Tuesday, February 28th, 2012 Cedar Building -- Conference Room Kwantlen Polytechnic University 12666 72nd Avenue Newton, Surrey The City of Surrey invites you to visit the Open House to provide feedback to identify community needs and issues on the development of the centre.

Council Update - The Financial Plan

Developer’s Public Information Meeting

Each year Council has the difficult job of establishing the City’s Financial Plan. In this Council Update you’ll learn more about the Financial Plan process and how you can be involved.

15168 Columbia Avenue

What is the Financial Plan? The City’s Financial Plan is a five year budget that must be legally adopted by Council every year. The Provincial Community Charter requires that a five-year Financial Plan Bylaw be adopted annually before the property tax rate bylaw is adopted in May. This means that every year, the City completes a five-year financial plan, or budget, outlining future spending and revenue sources. Included in this plan are the City’s annual operating expenses, as well as things like road work, facility improvements and other significant capital costs. The challenge faced by Council at this time is to not only be good stewards of taxpayers’ money, but also ensure that a high quality of life is maintained in White Rock.

The City of White Rock has received an application for a Development Variance Permit for the provision of 2 parking spaces for 15168 Columbia Avenue. A public information meeting is scheduled for Monday February 27, 2012 from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. at the White Rock Library at 15342 Buena Vista Avenue. This meeting will be an open house format with a display outlining the details of the proposed development. For more information, please contact Planning and Development Services at White Rock City Hall, 15322 Buena Vista Avenue, or phone 604.541.2155, or e-mail planning@ whiterockcity.ca.

Career Opportunity Chief Administrative Officer

On February 9, 2012, the Senior Management Team met with Council for a preliminary budget workshop. During this meeting, items impacting the budget were reviewed and assessed to address service demands and ensure long term financial sustainability.

The City of White Rock is currently seeking a Chief Administrative Officer with a record of success in senior level positions, preferably in the public sector. Reporting to the Mayor and City Council, the Chief Administrative Officer will provide strategic leadership to senior level staff and over 110 dedicated employees. You will provide sound professional advice, policy options, and timely, responsive, effective and efficient implementation of Council’s directives, policies and programs with a maintained focus on service improvement.

The next step in the process is for the 2012 to 2016 draft Financial Plan to go to the Finance and Audit Committee meeting on February 27 at 6:00 p.m. This is the start of public budget deliberations. At this time, the draft Financial Plan will be posted on the City’s web site.

View complete posting details at: www.whiterockcity.ca/careers. Deadline: 4:30 p.m., Friday, March 2, 2012

What is the process?

This meeting will be followed up with a public meeting to obtain input on the draft plan. This event will take place in March and is an excellent opportunity for residents to become involved and comment on the City’s Financial Plan. After considering all comments and feedback from the public meeting, adjustments may or may not be made to the budget, which will then go forward to a regular Council meeting in the form of a bylaw for approval. It must pass three readings before it is adopted as the 2012 to 2016 Financial Plan Bylaw. Why get involved? The Financial Plan process is a very important process that drives the City’s priorities and initiatives. It is also the place to find out how your tax dollars will be spent.

Request for Expression of Interest The City of White Rock is seeking transportation engineering consulting services, land surveying services, civil engineering consulting services and geotechnical engineering consulting services for various City projects on an “as and when needed” basis. This Request for Expression of Interest (RFEI) is to invite interested firms to submit a Statement of Qualifications (SOQ) for services, required over a two (2) year term commencing in 2012, with the option of extending the term into the future for up to five (5) one year periods. For more information on this request for expression of interest, please visit bcbid.gov.bc.ca.

The City of White Rock provides facilities and public services to meet residents’ needs that are paid for with public funds. If there is not enough revenue to provide for all that is needed, choices must be made. The Financial Plan process provides a mechanism where elected officials can reach out for public feedback, before finalizing spending priorities.

Property Care for Ravine and Slope Side Residents

The Financial Plan process allows us to work together for our City by the Sea!

If your property is near a ravine or slope you probably already know that these are highly sensitive areas. Your property care decisions can influence the stability of the slope, your neighbour’s property, as well as those at the bottom of the slope. Tips to ensure better slope stability include:

Councillor Mary-Wade Anderson

Councillor Alan Campbell

Councillor Helen Fathers

Mayor Wayne Baldwin

• Do not construct any structures, paths/trails, ponds, pools, landscaping or irrigation systems at or near the top of slopes or along slopes without approval of a geotechnical engineer; • Do not remove vegetation from anywhere along the slopes; • Regularly inspect structures for damage and ponds, pools and irrigation systems for leakage; • Do not discharge rain runoff onto slopes. Discharge rain run-off away from slopes and into a City-approved storm-water disposal system; • Do not dispose of yard waste or place fill (soil) on top of or along slopes; • Check for applicable permits from the City of White Rock for any planned works adjacent to slopes.

next week Councillor Louise Hutchinson

Councillor Grant Meyer

Councillor Larry Robinson

February 27, 2012, 6:00 pm Finance and Audit Committee Meeting All meetings held at City Hall, 15322 Buena Vista Avenue unless otherwise noted.

Eyes trained on Honduras Local efforts to boost eye care for the poorest residents of poverty-stricken Tegucigalpa, Honduras continue. Dr. Michelle Elliott and Matthew Elliott of Spectrum Optometry, supported by the Rotary Club of White Rock, returned to the Zoe Health Clinic in December to provide education and training for optometrists and opticians. The clinic provides low-cost, or free, eye-care services to underprivileged area residents, however, opportunities for education in optics is limited, Michelle said. Since December 2008, the Honduras Eyecare Project team has been working to fill that need. Each trip, they also bring donations of used glasses for their Honduras patients. In 2010, they helped deliver a $30,000 YAG Laser to the clinic, made possible by the Rotary Club of White

A 12-acre park is being built along Fraser River.

New addition to river corridor

Surrey adds another park Jeff Nagel Black Press

A 12-acre park being created in Surrey, along the Fraser River, is the latest piece being dropped into the larger Experience the Fraser project that aims to open a network of contiguous riverside trails from Hope to the Salish Sea. The forested land on Parsons Channel bought by the City of Surrey includes two fish-bearing creeks and will offer viewpoints overlooking the river. Surrey Coun. Linda Hepner said the new park, located between 182A Street and Golden Ears Way, will attract people from around the region and provide a key Surrey chunk of the Experience the Fraser vision to “enhance recreation opportunities and create a thriving park system along the river.� More than 43 per cent of the 550 kilometres of planned trails for Experience the Fraser are already in place, mostly in existing parks or along dykes. The ultimate vision is for twin trails – dubbed the Canyon to Coast Trail – running on both sides of the river throughout the Lower Mainland, ending

in Steveston and the Tsawwassen ferry terminal. Surrey Bend Regional Park, Westminster Pier Park, the Pitt River greenway and the Matsqui Trail to Fort Langley are expected to be key sections in the 160-kilometre corridor. Users could take side trips on linking trails into areas like the Kanaka Greenway or Sumas Mountain Regional Park. Connections with the Sea-to-Sky trail and Trans-Canada trail are also envisioned. The Experience the Fraser trails would connect heritage and First Nations cultural sites, amenities like campgrounds and other destinations, from museums to farm gate stores. An initial concept plan was endorsed last fall by the Metro Vancouver and Fraser Valley regional district boards. The province provided $2.5 million in initial funding to develop the concept plan and help launch two demonstration projects – one on the Mission waterfront and the other a trail through Derby Reach Regional Park between the Golden Ears Bridge and Fort Langley.

Anyone wanting to sign up as a team captain, volunteer or participant is welcome to attend the hour-long event. Guests will also learn how Easter Seals helps children with disabilities in the community.

IF THE GOVERNMENT CAN SPEND $600 MILLION ON THIS PLACE...

IT CAN INVEST MORE IN SCHOOLS, TEACHERS AND KIDS It’s all about priorities When the provincial government has something it wants to do, it has the money. So why does the government insist the cupboard is bare when it comes time to invest in schools, teachers, and kids? BC schools have more than 12,000 overcrowded classes. There are 700 fewer special needs teachers than a decade ago. All when there are more kids needing extra help than ever before. That’s why teachers are taking action to pressure the government to reinvest in classrooms and kids again. We’re also seeking a modest salary increase. Teacher salaries here have fallen so far behind that BC now ranks 9th in what it pays experienced teachers and 10th in what it pays new ones. Our bargaining proposal includes an annual cost-of-living adjustment to keep up with inflation. And we’re asking for a 3% pay increase in each of the second and third years of a new contract to help us make up a bit of the ground we’ve lost over the years. So what do we want? A bit more for teachers. A lot more for kids. It’s a fair and affordable investment in BC’s future.

Ticket buyers will not only be helping to send the band to this year’s Las Vegas Invitational Jazz Festival, they’ll also have an up-close opportunity to experience the energy and enthusiasm of an outstanding youth ensemble. “Semiahmoo Secondary has a long and proud tradition of excellence in jazz education that extends back over 20 years,” said band director Dave Fullerton. “Graduates of this nationallyrecognized program go on to gain acceptance to the continent’s top jazz institutions and proceed to successful professional careers all over the world.” The current Grade 12 group boasts numerous standout soloists, but also a rich ensemble sound, a powerful drive and the solid musicianship to nail arrangements that listeners at the recent Southend Summit band showcase

score of Radiohead’s Everything In Its Right Place – both of which promise to be highlights of the upcoming concert – it’s easy to forget that these professionalsounding players are still high school musicians. Representing the professional

world’s interest in these rising stars will be the guest artist for the concert, Juno award-winning saxophonist Campbell Ryga. “Campbell is a world-class jazz artist and the band is thrilled to be able to back him up in concert,” said Fullerton, adding these

selections include the poignant ballad A Flower is A Lovesome Thing, and an arrangement of Victor Young’s immortal 1940s standard Stella By Starlight. Lovers of the more traditional side of the big band repertoire will also enjoy the band’s versions of Here’s That Rainy Day and Duke Ellington’s iconic 1932 classic It Don’t Mean A Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing). Standards will also provide showcases for the vocal side of two of the band’s multitalented performers, trombonist Chloe Wright (who will sing Hoagy Carmichael’s Georgia On My Mind) and guitarist Trevor Peverley (who will perform Rodgers and Hart’s The Lady Is A Tramp). As MusicFest Canada is in Ottawa this year – a prohibitively expensive trip for the student musicians – the band has opted, instead, to travel to the Las Vegas School of the Performing Arts for the annual invitational jazz festival. But the event is not simply a consolation prize for the ambitious group, Fullerton said. “It boasts a very impressive list of guest artists, clinicians and adjudicators,” he noted. Tickets ($20) can be purchased online through whiterockplayers.ca or by calling the Coast Capital box office at 604-536-7535.

Tom Fletcher Black Press

The B.C. Utilities Commission has approved an extra 2.5 per cent interim increase in BC Hydro rates, which means a seven per cent increase in electricity bills starting April 1. The commission’s decision is a setback for the B.C. government, which conducted a costcutting review of BC Hydro last year that cut 700 jobs to bring the 2012 rate increase down below four per cent. The deciJohn Doyle Auditor General sion is still an interim rate increase. BC Hydro can argue for a reduction, which would result in a rebate on electricity bills if it is granted by the commission later this year. The commission ruled that the latest 2.5 per cent increase, about $5 a month on the average residential bill, is needed to pay down BC Hydro’s ballooning deferred debt, which was identified in October by B.C. Auditor General John Doyle. Doyle reviewed BC Hydro’s books and found that as of March 2011, $2.2 billion of the util-

The 80-year-old Ruskin dam and powerhouse is getting an upgrade expected to cost up to $850 million. ity’s debt was placed in deferral accounts. Deferred expenses were forecast to grow to $5 billion by 2017. Doyle said deferral accounts for major capital costs are an acceptable practice to smooth out rate increases, but BC Hydro’s use of it runs ahead of other Canadian utilities. The practice can “mask the true cost of doing business, creating the appearance of profitability where none actually exists, and

place undue burdens on future taxpayers,” he said. Doyle’s conclusion that “there does not appear to be a plan to reduce the balance of these accounts” is supported by the utilities commission decision. NDP energy critic John Horgan said the auditor’s report showed the B.C. Liberal government was using BC Hydro as an “ATM machine,” collecting $463 million in revenue last year and forcing the utility to pile up debt to do it.

Surfside Flooring Dark and rich, light and contemporary, rustic or smooth and sleek — whatever your style, your local experts at Surfside Flooring have what you need, at the price you want. Home to the Peninsula’s largest selection of hardwoods, laminates, tiles, vinyls and now carpet! Surfside Flooring is a custom flooring boutique, offering the latest floor fashions Dora and Brian and unbeatable prices — close to home! Offering hands-on, quality service and expert installation, owners Brian and Dora Belyk, along with their friendly and professional staff, are always available to walk you through their spacious showroom and answer all your flooring questions. No commission sales, just great service, expert installation and knowledgeable advice. “Many people are surprised to find this selection of quality flooring locally at such reasonable prices,” said Brian Belyk, who has been in the flooring business for nearly 40 years. “However, because we own the store and don’t rent, we have very little overhead. We have also established excellent long-term relationships with our suppliers and manufacturers, so we work together to ensure we’re offering the highest quality product, at the most reasonable price possible.” With decor trends (walls, furnishings, accessories) leaning toward a more neutral colour palette this spring, Belyk says people are really wanting to make a statement with their floors. In addition to colour, he notes the floor’s finish and texture are important considerations both from an aesthetic and practical point of view. “Flooring is definitely one of the biggest investments you can make in your home, so it is very important that home owners are educated about their options and work with a professional who knows how to ask the right questions,” he said. Surfside is now offering carpet and vinyl selections in addition to Sheoga hardwood, a line made in the U.S.A by the Amish community in pre-finished North American hardwood species. Other hot floor products include floating porcelain tiles and new designer colour options from Vintage, Armstrong, Dansk, Lauzon, Tierra Sol, Anderson, Ames and more, including commercial warrantied products.

Curtain Call Whether you’re looking to update one room or your whole home, The Curtain Call can help from start to finish. For more than 18 years, owner Joan Walker and her team have helped Peninsula residents transform their homes, combining expertise, talent and commitment with remarkable results. The Curtain Call has become well-known for their custom window coverings, and with an inJoan Walker house work room and a library of exquisite fabrics, even the most challenging of odd-shaped windows are transformed into unique showpieces. But The Curtain Call’s expertise extends far beyond windows – Joan also provides a wide range of interior design services including custom furniture, upholstery, bedding and headboards, carpets, toss pillows, and accent furnishings. Aside from the high quality of service and workmanship you can expect from Joan and her team, exceptional and personalized customer service is another important aspect of The Curtain Call experience. From taking the time to understand a client’s style and budget limitations, to working carefully through each step until the project is complete, Joan strives to make each client feel important. And that determination to put the client first has been a key ingredient to The Curtain Call’s success for nearly two decades, with frequent repeat business and a great reputation in the community. Joan and her team also make a point of keeping up with what’s new in the world of interior design, and are a wealth of knowledge when it comes to creating the perfect look for your home This spring, Joan expects to see an emphasis on neutral tones combined with vibrant colours. An accent piece – like a bold, patterned chair – is a good bet to add a pop of colour to a room. Textures are still a strong trend, but with woven patterns, such as an Ikat pattern. “What is huge is mixing different types of texture, whether it’s in fabric or furniture,” Joan says. “You can even see it in area rugs with silks, cottons and wools blended together.” For an in-home consultation, call The Curtain Call, and see how Joan and her team can transform your home with a design tailored for you.

Craftsman Collision There is never a good time to have a car accident. But when you do suffer an accident or other damage to your vehicle, it’s nice to know you’re never far from B.C.’s favourite body shop. Since 2009, Harj Bharaj and his team at Craftsman Collision in South Surrey have gone above and beyond Harj Bharaj to minimize the headache of getting your vehicle repaired, making it their daily mission to redefine the standards of auto body repair. By providing outstanding customer service, they have helped Craftsman Collision achieve the coveted title of “Best Auto Body Shop in Vancouver” for the past 10 years in a row by the Consumer Choice Awards. “We know it can be difficult when your vehicle has been damaged, especially when it’s through no fault of your own,” Harj said. “We want to minimize that and turn a negative experience into a positive one by sharing the ‘Craftsman Sparkle’ with our customers. We have definitely set the bar in the industry when it comes to shop cleanliness, courtesy, operating efficiency and our Good for Life Guarantee, which all makes up the ‘Craftsman Sparkle.’ Most importantly, we want all our customers to leave with a smile.” Their exceptional customer service, impeccable reputation and skilled employees are just a few of the reasons why Craftsman Collision is the top pick for repairing vehicles. “Our staff goes above and beyond, we’re a very customer-oriented business, our job is to keep the customer happy and never compromise the quality of repair, it’s a given!” Harj said. The professional staff at Craftsman Collision includes estimators, managers and their friendly reception team. Craftsman knows it’s a changing world and how important it is to stay competitive while minimizinge their carbon footprint to keep B.C. beautiful. All locations have high-tech paint booths that recycle heat, eco-friendly paints, and the latest in Wedge Clamp and Genesis Measuring technologies., and eco-friendly paints. They are an active member of the BC Hydro Product Incentive Plan, and if all goes well, will soon be the first body shop company in Vancouver using a new nitrogen paint-spraying system known as Nitroheat, distributed by Wedge Clamp. The system leaves a smaller carbon footprint than conventional paint sprayers and uses less paint, making it consistent with Craftsman’s leadership in adopting greener technology. Other added bonuses include their Air Miles Rrewards program (they’re the only collision repair chain in the province to offer them and you earn Air Miles on the full value of your repair), and their fleet of brand new vehicles, which are provided for those who require a courtesy car. For all these reasons and more, Craftsman Collision is the go to place for customers who want nothing but the best and guaranteed smiles.

KILL LAWN MOSS SAFELY

Art Knapp Plantland When people need to find a solution for their garden problems, they know the place to go to is Art Knapp Plantland on King George Boulevard. The knowledgeable staff at the family-owned and operated business will help you navigate through tricky problems and provide a variety of solutions. Kerry Vanderzalm Lonnie and Kerry Vanderzalm, two of four brothers who own the Surrey location, are always happy to help customers with questions. Recently, they’ve heard more and more people complain about moss creeping up and stunting the growth of their grass. The Vanderzalms suggest using Garden Plus moss-control to get rid of existing moss. However, although the moss is gone for now, it doesn’t mean it will stay away, Lonnie said. “Acidic soil caused by rain and the winter is why that moss is growing, so if you don’t correct the reason of why it grows, the moss comes back”. By applying lime to the soil to correct the acidity, you can prevent the moss from regrowing, but it needs to be added annually. “One application of lime corrects the damage for that one winter, but if you don’t add lime each year, the moss will thrive into the soil and grass will slow down,” Lonnie said. There are many lime products available at Art Knapp, including natural egg shell lime, which consists of ground up chicken egg shells. Providing customers with the tools and knowledge they need to have a successful garden is the goal at Art Knapp Plantland. Many of the staff have worked at the business for years, creating a very familiar and welcoming atmosphere, Lonnie said. “We’re open year-round, so you won’t come by and find new staff each season,” Kerry said. “You can come by and see the same faces each time. Greenthumbs and novice gardeners alike will feel at home when they come in, so stop by Art Knapps, whether it’s for inspiration or for guidance, you won’t leave empty-handed.

Crescent Beach Shakespeare production gathers momentum

‘Such stuff as dreams are made on’ Alex Browne

I

Arts Reporter

t’s scarcely been a “winter of discontent” for producers Candace Radcliffe, Rick Harmon and their creative partners in Beach House Theatre, whose plans to bring live Shakespeare to Crescent Beach each year seem bound for a “glorious summer” – starting with a production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream this August. A sold-out-and-then-some fundraiser this Saturday (Feb. 25) at Morgan Creek Golf Club – the tickets were almost gone before it was even formally announced – is only the latest manifestation of waves of support that have come rolling in for the project as surely as the tides that lap around Blackie Spit. “We’ve made wonderful progress in the last couple of months,” said artistic director Radcliffe, who confessed she is astonished at the way her long-held dream of a Shakespeare festival in her village community has captured the imagination of people across the Peninsula. Already greenlighted for its inaugural year by the City of Surrey (“We’ve been working closely with the special events department,” Radcliffe said), the venture received its registered charity status from the Canadian Revenue Agency in December, which means all donations are now tax deductible. And Bosa Properties has come on board as a major community sponsor for the project. “It’s got a life of it’s own, now,” chuckled Harmon, who also serves as associate director for Beach House . Of course it doesn’t hurt that Harmon, as the former drama guru at Earl Marriott Secondary, and Radcliffe, as his frequent collaborator and successor, have generations of passionate former

Actors Russel Chartrand and Marina Benitez-Lazzarotto ponder their roles in the creation of a new Shakespeare festival – Beach House Theatre – which plans to bring the Bard’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream to Crescent Beach this August. drama kids and family volunteers as a handy support base. Two alumni, actors Russel Chartrand and Marina BenitezLazzarotto – who appeared in Harmon and Radcliffe’s magical 2005 Marriott production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream – have already signed on to participate in and promote the production, even though final roles are far from assigned. That included a recent photo session, in suitably Shakespearian costume, at Blackie Spit, where the Beach House production team, including designer Nicole Chartrand, technical director Geoff McEvoy and production manager

Sarah Adams will bring their professional skills to building a temporary, fully-covered, 250-seat theatre for the Aug. 15-19 run. This Saturday’s dinner and auction fundraiser was such a success right out of the gate that Radcliffe and Harmon say they’ll offer another one – probably a pub-night-style event – in the near future. They doff their caps to an enthusiastic board and the fundraising volunteer group headed by Jane Finley. “She’s a dynamo – she basically organized the event for us,” said Radcliffe, who added that local businesses and individuals proved

eager to donate auction items. “And John Kavanagh of Hooked Fish Bar on Crescent Beach has been a huge supporter right from the beginning.” But the support of development giant Bosa is undeniably a major turning point, Radcliffe and Harmon agree. “I think they’ve realized the potential of this – they’re significant supporters,” Radcliffe said. “At the same time, we’re not turning away other sponsors at all.” Which is all to the good, said Harmon. “We just had a budget meeting, and the cost of tents and risers continues to add up,” he noted.

And there are still some missing pieces to the puzzle – like a space to build and store set pieces for the production before the show opens. Initial estimates of the cost of the project for the first year were in the $70,000 to $80,000 range. “Our goal from the beginning was to find some financial partners for this – and what makes us really excited is that a couple of other companies are considering joining us,” Radcliffe said. “It all adds strength and legitimacy – and helps us build roots.” For more information, including ways to donate or volunteer, visit www.beachhousetheatre.org

arts & entertainment Three days full of performing planned

Busy weekend for piano duo Alex Browne Arts Reporter

Elizabeth and Marcel Bergmann – the Bergmann Piano Duo – became South Surrey residents only last year. But the wife-husband team of world-class classical musicians, originally based in Calgary, have rapidly become involved in the Greater Vancouver music scene. Just how involved is evident from a busy upcoming weekend of concerts for the pair. On Friday at 10:30 a.m. they’ll be performing at the Silk Purse in West Vancouver in a four-handsone-piano concert featuring lively idiomatic music by Bernstein, Brahms, De Falla and Dvorak. On Saturday at 8 p.m., they’ll be at the Orpheum in Vancouver, participating with the Vancouver Bach Choir in a performance of Stravinsky’s 20th century masterpiece Les Noces (1923), written for four pianos, vocal soloists, choir and percussion. “This work is rarely heard because of its overall demands on all the performers, as well as the highly unusual instrumentation,” said Elizabeth, who also serves as artistic director of concerts and director of summer programs for the Langley Community Music School. “What’s more, the performance will feature the original Russian

Elizabeth and Marcel Bergmann are to perform this weekend. version.” Also on the program of the Orpheum concert is an original work by Marcel, who continues to commute to Hamilton, Ont. for his post as professor of music at Mohawk College. Called Midsummer Flower, it’s a piece for two pianos, percussion and choir. Closer to home, the duo will perform Sunday at the Langley Community Music School as part of the Cafe Classico concerts series. The program begins at 3 p.m. with a pre-concert chat with the performers, followed by the con-

cert itself, at 4 p.m. “We will be performing some of the gems of the four-hand literature,” Elizabeth said. These will include Brahms; Waltzes Op. 39, Schubert’s famous F Minor Fantasy, Gershwin’s alltime hit Rhapsody in Blue and some new arrangements by Marcel of music from West Side Story. “We have played his two-piano arrangement of these pieces for many years, but he only recently arranged some excerpts for one piano and four hands,” she said.

Three players well-known to local audiences – Emma Rendell, and James Walker and Mike Wild – lend their talents to Fighting Chance Productions’ current production of Rupert Holmes’ Tony Award-winning musical, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, which runs until March 3 at Vancouver’s Metro Theatre. Rendell plays the role of Helena Landless, Walker appears as Durdles and Wild is cast as Rev. Crisparkle in this “wildly warm hearted theatrical experience” offered by Fighting Chance (their Nunsense was well-received in a White Rock run last year at Coast Capital Playhouse), which reinvents Charles Dickens’ unfinished novel as a flamboyant show put on by the resident troupe of the

Music Hall Royale. The story within the story is Dickens’ melodrama of John Jasper, a Jekylland-Hyde church choirmaster who is passionately obsessed with his student Miss Rosa Bud. She, however, is engaged to Jasper’s nephew Edwin Drood – until he disappears mysteriously one stormy Christmas Eve. Directed by Fighting Chance founder/artistic director Ryan Mooney, the show also features Alex McMorran (Jasper), Jennifer Doan (Rosa) Sarah WolfmanRobichaud (Drood), Alfonso Banzon (Neville Landless), Linda Leong Sum (Princess Puffer), Chris Lam (Bazzard) and Jesse Setka (Deputy). Tickets range from $10 to $30 (plus service charges) and are available at the door, online at www. ticketstonight.ca or by calling 604-684-2787.

Surrey Eagles’ goalie leads surging team toward playoffs

The Hunt for a title Nick Greenizan

F

Sports Reporter

irst thing’s first, Gary Nylund wants to make one thing clear about goaltenders. “You know they’re all crazy, right?” the Surrey Eagles assistant coach, and former National Hockey League defenceman, laughs as he laces his skates before practice Tuesday. “They have a... unique mental makeup, some of them.” When it comes to Eagles’ starting netminder Andrew Hunt, however, Nylund quickly backs off his original claim. “Nah, I’m just kidding. He’s a real good kid.” And while Hunt may be more levelheaded than some who mind the crease, he’s been playing out of his mind for much of the BC Hockey League season, helping boost the Eagles to a first-place perch in the Coastal Conference. The 19-year-old Surrey native has been the busiest BCHL netminder this season. He is first in games-played and minutesplayed, and he’s third among starters in save-percentage (.920) and among the league-leaders in goals-against (2.78). His 27 wins place him only behind Penticton’s Michael Garteig, who has 39 victories on a Vees squad that’s lost just three games all year. In fact, even with all the depth the Eagles have on the roster, and the success they’ve had thus far, Nylund says Hunt has been the team’s key player. “We’ve got a good team, so I hate to say that we’re only as good as our goalie, but on many nights this year, we have been,” he says. “Our goalie coach (Rob Fuchs) doesn’t praise many goalies the way he praises Hunt. And he’s earned that praise.” High praise for a goaltender who is in just his second year playing junior ‘A’ hockey, and his first season as a starter. And it’s not just Nylund and head coach/GM Matt Erhart who see Hunt’s talent; last week, the goaltender agreed to a scholarship with NCAA Div. 1 Clarkson University, in New York.

Surrey Eagles goaltender Andrew Hunt will play next hockey season at Clarkson University, an NCAA school in New York. “I thought the scholarship offer was a long who’d spent the previous two seasons with time coming, to be honest with you,” said the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League’s Fuchs, who has known Hunt since Saint John Sea Dogs. He now plays the netminder was 13 years old. “I professionally in the ECHL. can’t believe it took as long as it did “I think the main thing he learned for some school to make him an from Karel was how hard to work offer.” in practice. I guess that was the one Hunt, who had a handful of knock on Andrew last year – his college suitors, said he chose intensity and work ethic in practice,” Clarkson because not only is it said Erhart, who coached Hunt in a good school, he would also be major-midget before joining the given a chance to earn playing time Eagles’ coaching staff. right away; Clarkson’s two current “But he’s improved on that. He got ❝We think goaltenders graduate this spring. off to a good start at the beginning “It’s just a good fit,” Hunt added. we’ve got a of the season and he’s just kept And though Hunt is only in his guy who can progressing.

Hunt agrees that the year spent Hunt began last season playing practising and watching St. behind Vinny Lessard, but Lessard was Laurent, all while patiently waiting for his released midway through the year and opportunity, was worth it. replaced by Karel St. Laurent, a veteran “It was just the way Karel prepared. Not

even just game days, either. The day before, he was getting ready, watching video – he knew who every (opposing shooter) was,” he said. Hunt has played in 45 of the Eagles’ 51 games so far this season, and though Erhart said he’d like to give his starter a break to ensure he’s fresh for the playoffs, the standings are too close not to have the No. 1 guy between the pipes. “You talk to any starting goalie, and they want to play every single game. That goes for Andrew, too – he’s a competitive kid.” But whether or not Hunt gets a break over the season’s last three weeks or not, Nylund trusts that his starter – who is backed up by Conor Barrie this season – will be able to lead Surrey on a deep playoff run, even if he is a little quieter or more reserved than some other goalies he’s come across through the years. “He’s pretty calm, but an interesting fella, and we couldn’t be happier with him. We think we’ve got a guy who can take us to the end here.”

Local athletes set for Games The B.C. Winter Games are set to begin today (Thursday) in Vernon, and if all goes well, a handful of young Surrey and White Rock athletes may find themselves on the podium. Athletes taking part in the Games – where they’ll represent Zone 3 (Fraser Valley) – include gymnast Abby Strand, a White Rock Elementary student who, at 11, is considered one of B.C.’s top gymnastics in her age group,

and White Rock cross-country skier Kieran Lumb. Fraser Valley’s ringette team will also be chock full of local talent, as eight players from the SurreyWhite Rock Ringette Association are taking part – Nicole Wiebe, Audrey Sturgess, Dana Dunstan, Jocelyn McComb, Stephanie Saito, Jessica Ruck, Taylor Jeszenszky, Katelyn Vincent. Semiahmoo Minor Hockey

Association’s Sydney Kreps will play in Vernon for Zone 3’s girls hockey team, alongside Surrey players Ashley Long, Stephanie Renkers, Natalie Richardson and Morgan Symington. Surrey’s Davis Hogg will also be hitting the slopes in Vernon, competing in alpine skiing. South Surrey resident Kathy Oxner will also be at the Winter Games, helping coach the paranordic ski team. The B.C. Winter Games run Feb. 23 until Feb. 26. For more, visit www.bcgames.org - Nick Greenizan

Hoops league courting young talent Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

A new basketball league aimed at the area’s youngest players is set to take off this spring. Beginning in April, One Pass Ahead Basketball – run by Scott Allen, coach of the men’s team at Trinity Western University – will launch a development program, aimed at players in Grades 2 to 6. Players will practise once a week – sessions will “focus on skill

acquisition and basic team play” – and play a game on weekends. The program is set to begin April 2 and will wrap up June 1. Allen said the new program was designed because he and others at One Pass Ahead saw a gap in the development of young basketball players. In other sports – be it hockey, baseball or soccer – young players begin playing at the club level as young as four or five years old.

But in basketball, Allen pointed out, players don’t begin to play competitively until high school. “There is a lot of basketball going on, but not always at the highest level,” Allen said. “Right now as a community, that’s a need that we aren’t meeting.” The program will be run out of White Rock Christian Academy and Earl Marriott Secondary.

in the end, I think our fitness and talent wore them down, and we were able to put up some points,” Kearney said. Kearney was hoping for better weather for this weekend’s tilt against the Rowers, but either way, he said he’s encouraged by the fact his troops have shown the ability to score in slower, sloppier games. “Hopefully it’ll be a nice, sunny day,” he said. “We are fast, fit and young, so we want to go out there and spin the ball, get out and run with it and put up some points. “We aren’t big, so we don’t like to play that grinding, plodding style, but we can if we have to.” All three Bayside men’s teams will be in action Saturday against the Rowing Club. The clubs’ third-division teams square off at 11:30 a.m., following by seconddivision teams at 1 p.m and the first-division game at 2:30 p.m.

Totem Grade 9 boys tops on court The Semiahmoo Totems Grade 9 boys basketball team has a city title to add to its resume after a 58-55 win over North Surrey in the finals of Surrey Championships Thursday night. Semiahmoo trailed by five points with just three minutes left in the game until going on a 10-2 scoring run to snag the win

from the hands of their Surrey rivals. Two members of the victorious Semiahmoo squad – Jairo Salazar and Brian Spanier – were named to the all-star team at the conclusion of the Surrey Championships, while Curtis Harvey was also named tournament MVP.

The Totems, coached by Paul Langton, now advance to Fraser Valley Championships later this week. Prior to winning the Surrey title, Semiahmoo went 7-0 in league play, and defeated Pacific Academy 44-41 in the semifinals of the Surrey tournament. - Nick Greenizan

British Columbia has traditionally been synonymous with forestry and today this industry is still one of the cornerstones of our economy, especially in many rural communities which strongly value and support timber harvesting. With over two-thirds (60 million hectares) of the provincial land mass covered in forest we can count on a healthy industry for many more years. B.C. has more than 110 lumber mills, over 70 with a capacity of more than 40 million board feet per year; 27 veneer, plywood and OSB (oriented strand board) mills, eight pellet mills, 18 pulp mills (six of which are also paper mills) and over 80 other primary processing mills such as chips, shake and shingle, pole, and log manufacturers. The forestry sector has a deep pool of skilled professionals and a highly trained workforce. Altogether the industry employs well over 50,000 well paid employees, often the life-blood of small towns. B.C.’s forest sector is definitely starting to recover from the last decade’s downturn. Since 2009, over two dozen mills have announced they are re-opening or adding shifts. The importance of this industry to B.C. is demonstrated by the fact that 40% of the province’s regional economies are based on forestry activities, in more than 7,000 businesses. Coast Clear Wood serves niche markets by providing lumber products to match the specific needs of international markets. The have garnered success by focusing their efforts on marketing their products in Canada, USA, Puerto Rico, Mexico, China, Korea, and India. With plans for further expansion into new markets, Coast Clear Wood continues to source high quality raw materials from Canada and other international suppliers that meet the high standards of their customers. Owner Tom Sundher is very proud to have twice won a B.C. export award for his work in India; he is considered a leader in opening the market for B.C. wood in that country. One reason for growth in the industry is the Asian market. International buyers know that B.C. is a stable supplier of high-quality wood products; we can provide timber supply security. This secure supply, coupled with the fact our spruce, pine, fir, hemlock and balsam fibre baskets are among the richest in the world makes B.C. extremely attractive.

The B.C. brand of wood products is well established globally with market-leading shares in key countries such as China, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan. B.C. is also looking to be the first major country that deals in softwood lumber to establish its products in the India marketplace. Working with the federal government and industry, the Province has strengthened and diversified the B.C. forest sector by increasing market demand for softwood lumber throughout Asia. The global demand for bio-products from the forest is predicted to reach $200 billion a year. Renewable fuels, plastics, and chemicals for the pharmaceutical and food industries can potentially be manufactured by running wood fibre and residues through bio-refinery. B.C. has taken steps to make it easier for the non-lumber sector to source supplies of lower quality fibre. This includes fibre supply licences to cut to use logging debris that is left behind on landings and roadsides. Taking care of this natural abundance is critical. An amazing statistic is the fact B.C. has planted more than six billion trees since reforestation programs began in the 1930’s, and is on track to plant its seven billionth tree in 2013/14. We plant an average of 200 million trees each year. B.C. produces more wood products certified to environmental standards than any other region in the world and has 53 million hectares certified to one of three internationally recognized sustainable forest management certification standards. Growth now and in the future requires a solid foundation. B.C. created the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations to deal with increasing demands and pressures on the land base by taking a more integrated approach to managing B.C.’s natural resources. BC Hydro launched a two-phase Bioenergy Call for Power. Phase one has helped advance bioenergy development in Kamloops, Castlegar and Prince George, while phase two has done the same for Chetwynd, Fort St. James, Fraser Lake and Merritt. B.C. has also passed the Wood First Act to promote and encourage a cultural shift that will make wood the first choice for construction in the commercial and institutional sectors as well as residential. The future looks very bright for this most iconic of British Columbia industries.

Growing up, Olympian Stephanie McCann used to practise long jump with her sister in Surrey’s Bear Creek Park. Last Saturday, 20 years after she competed as a pole vaulter at the 1992 BC Summer Games in Port Alberni, McCann came to Guildford Town Centre to lend her support to the official introduction of the 2012 BC Summer Games, which take place in Surrey, July 19-22. Nearly two dozen sports will take place throughout Surrey’s six town centres. With thousands of athletes, coaches and fans attending, there’s now a call for at least

ming, rowing, wrestling, softball and more. McCann said her involvement in sports led to life-long friendships. “Sport always brings people together.” McCann, after competing in in the BC Summer Games, went on to win four national championships and bronze medals at the Commonwealth and Pan American Games. Her leap of 4.4-m put her in 10th place at the 2004 Summer Olympic Games in Athens. For more information about the games or volunteering, visit www.2012bcsummergames.ca - Black Press

Couple ďŹ nds the perfect place to call home

A lot to love at Maynardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Block Cozy spaces might be great for some couples, but Arseniy Tkachuk and Kseniya Stepanova are not one of them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand tiny apartments,â&#x20AC;? Tkachuk says. The size was the most important feature to him when they were looking for a home. They found the perfect place in Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Maynardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Block, built by Aquilini Development Corporation. They looked at several places before deciding to buy there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After living in Burnaby for a few years, I came to the conclusion that living in this suburb is neither here nor there,â&#x20AC;? says Stepanova. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t offer all the conveniences of a central location, yet itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a quiet getaway

either.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We both work nearby,â&#x20AC;? adds Tkachuk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to be able to walk ... instead of driving for half an hour. And ... I love big cities, people, traffic and busy streets if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not in the car.â&#x20AC;? Stepanova also loves the building itself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love the windows that curve along the length of the apartment, bringing in lots of light. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the typical boxy layout that you see everywhere else,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Arseniy designs and sells wall beds and custom closets, so he has seen a lot of apartments ... that was another reason we chose the area. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inspirational and convenient for his line of work,â&#x20AC;? says Stepanova.

undermount sinks with polished chrome faucets and elegant vanity mirrors with solid wood frames. The secondary bathrooms also include custom vanities and the mirror, as well as oversized glazed ceramic tile flooring and polished chrome bath accessories. The neighbourhood has seen a lot of development recently, so buyers

are close to everything they could ever need. The shopping possibilities are impressive, with the Grandview Corners shopping centre and Wal-Mart just around the corner. Restaurants, schools and recreation are also nearby. Homes start at $364,900. For more information visit abbeyroadliving.com or call 604-542-0660.

Taking a page out of Beatles history

Come together at South Surreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Abbey Road by Kerry Vital

The Abbey Road Studios, where the Beatles recorded some of their iconic albums, was originally a Georgian townhome from the 1800s. Now, Woodbridge Homes brings you your own piece of Georgian architecture, with its newest townhome development, Abbey Road. Located in the up-and-coming Morgan Heights area, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an unusual type of architecture in the neighbourhood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something a bit different,â&#x20AC;? says sales manager Tara Desmond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is something really unique for South Surrey.â&#x20AC;? The exteriors include iron gates and window boxes, so your green thumb will be put to good use. The shutters and elegant brick combine to make a home that looks truly amazing. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one feature at Abbey Road that is sure to get a lot of use this summer. The large patios and decks are perfect for entertaining, with an optional natural gas barbecue connection and plenty of space for groups of all sizes. With 11 different floorplans available and three different colour schemes, there is plenty of choice at Abbey Road. One of the floorplans includes the master bedroom on the main floor, which Desmond says has been highly sought after recently. The kitchen holds another popular feature, a gas range. Chefs and home cooks alike are in love with them, Desmond says. That range is just one of the stainless-steel appliances that comes standard at Abbey Road. Chic quartz countertops are complemented by classic shaker-style cabinets with crown mouldings and polished nickel hardware and under-cabinet lighting beneath the overheight upper cabinets. Spacious nine-foot ceilings on the main floor contribute to the airy

feel inside, while the large windows maximize natural light. Wide-plank wood laminate flooring throughout the main living areas and nylon carpeting on the upper level are seamlessly integrated with the wooden baseboards featured throughout. The ensuite bathrooms include a deep soaker tub, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not hard to imagine yourself sitting there with a glass of wine and a good book. The ceramic tile surrounds are set off by the stone countertops and dual

â&#x20AC;&#x153;

This is something really unique for South Surrey,â&#x20AC;? says sales manager Tara Desmond.

The bathrooms at Abbey Road, top, are a peaceful haven at the end of a long day, with their soaker tubs and sleek undermount sinks. The kitchens are an ode to domesticity, featuring under-cabinet lighting and stainless-steel appliances, above.

Left to mourn by his mother Diane; father Barry (Valerie); sisters Connie, Karen (Russell); brother Stephen, and many Uncles, Aunts, nieces and nephews; his Grandfather Ted and many friends. Colin loved the outdoors and all nature had to offer. In lieu of flowers donations to the SPCA would be appreciated by Colin.

COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENTS 21 MORTON, Ken 1927-2012 Kenneth Ian Morton passed away, peacefully, in his sleep February 9th, after a lengthy illness. Born and raised in Birkenhead, England, he taught children in England, Malaysia & Canada. He married Lorna (Tuddenham) in 1951 and they raised two boys. The family emigrated to Terrace in 1969 and fell in love with BC. Ken retired with Lorna to White Rock in 1992. He is lovingly remembered by his wife of more than 60 years, sons Tim (Dawn) and Chris (Saskia), grandchildren Calina, Rhys and Kieran and siblings in England. Ken had a passion for the theatre – acting and directing, and was President of theatre groups in both Terrace and White Rock. He received numerous awards and recognition for his dedication to live theatre. He loved the outdoors, and traveled the world, especially in retirement. His kindness and sense of humour will be sorely missed by his family. A celebration of Ken’s life will be held March 3rd from 2-5 at the Coast Capital Playhouse.
