Jail term ‘definitely on the table,’ prosecutor says

Plea expected in hit-and-run fatality Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A Surrey man charged in connection with the hit-and-run death of White Rock resident Marilyn Laursen is expected to plead guilty next month to a number of charges. According to Surrey Provincial Court records, Kyle Brandon Danyliuk is scheduled to plead guilty to charges Marilyn Laursen including dangerous driving causing victim death and dangerous driving causing

bodily harm in connection with the May 18, 2011 incident. Prosecutor Brad Kielmann said Thursday that the plea decision was made “fairly recently.” It is not official until it is heard in court. Danyliuk’s next court appearance is scheduled for Feb. 15. Danyliuk was arrested last July 18, two months to the day after Laursen, 56, was struck and killed by a northbound vehicle as she crossed Johnston Road at

Thrift Avenue in White Rock. Police said at the time that the car that hit Laursen had avoided a police stop and sideswiped another northbound vehicle just prior to the incident, which occurred around 9:40 p.m. A suspect vehicle was found abandoned a short time later in the area of 160 Street and King George Boulevard in South Surrey. At its peak, the police investigation into the hit-and-run involved about 40 officers. It was led by Surrey RCMP’s

Serious Crime Unit, and supported by White Rock RCMP, the Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service, Integrated Forensic Identification Services and other Lower Mainland police units. Kielmann said if a guilty plea is entered Feb. 15, the next step will be to set a date for sentencing. While he could not speculate on what sentence may result, Kielmann said a jail term is “definitely on the table.”

Tributes paid to life lost in helicopter crash

Officers, civilians mourn RCMP pilot Sarah Massah Staff Reporter

Dave Brolin knew at age 18 that he wanted to be a helicopter pilot. The Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary alumnus told his dad as much, then quit college to pursue the dream. “He just ran with it and never looked back,” said Cpl. Paul Hayes, recalling a story Brolin’s dad had shared with him in the lead-up to Brolin’s funeral Thursday.

The tale was among several told during the afternoon service at Peace Portal Alliance Church, held nine days after Brolin’s Jan. 17 death. Family, friends and co-workers packed the church to pay tribute to the 46-year-old, a civilian pilot with the RCMP who died shortly after completing a training exercise, when his helicopter crashed near Cultus Lake. He was the craft’s sole occupant. The investigation to determine just what

caused the helicopter to go down is ongoing. Thursday, as bagpipes played, eight Mounties escorted Brolin’s flag-draped casket past hundreds of mourners, many of them in red serge. Hayes’ tales – compiled from family members’ memories – evoked both tears and laughter. He described Brolin as a man who lived life to the fullest; who loved his family, his profession and his country.  see page 2

One of the White Rock councillors who voted for new lights and arches for the seaside city’s famous pier last year has defended the decision, saying Mayor Wayne Baldwin was wrong to describe it as Wayne Baldwin a “last-minute panic attack.” Al Campbell did not respond at the Jan. 23 council meeting when the new mayor made his remarks, but days later contacted Peace Al Campbell Arch News to comment that Baldwin was “misinformed” about last fall’s situation. “No panic here,” Campbell states in an email received Thursday.  see page 4

news Neighbours’ profits punitive for some, say residents

Homeowners weary from assessments Alex Browne Staff Reporter

More cases of anomalous property assessments have emerged in South Surrey – just prior to today’s deadline for appeals to BC Assessment. Kenneth Langton, who lives on Marine Drive, says his assessment notice this year was $1,300,700 – a jump of more than 87 per cent from last year’s figure of $694,700. And Bernie Baumgartel, who lives on the floodplain where Elgin Road crosses the Nicomekl River, has seen his assessment rise nearly 38 per cent, from $1,112,600 to $1,535,400. Both men say that while nearby building has boosted property values, neither is in a position to redevelop their properties to match the pace of adjacent development.

And even though they apply each year for a reduction under the B.C. Assessment Act – which applies to long-term primary residents on lots less than five acres for which there has been no sales transaction in the last 10 years – they say it doesn’t appear to have had an impact this year. But Craig Barnsley, deputy assessor for the South Fraser Region, said this week that it’s possible properties can appreciate in value by a large amount, even if valued as singlefamily residences. “But if the property has met the test (for a reduction), the assessor will evaluate the property on present use and will not take into consideration the development around it,” he said. Barnsley reiterated that the best recourse for any property owner is to call the BC Assess-

ment office before today’s appeal deadline. His statement provides scant relief for Langton and Baumgartel, both of whom have already queried their current assessment. Baumgartel, who has owned his heritage home for 35 years, said he has filed an online complaint, noting the value of his 2.75-acre property has been inflated by development on two sides of his home. Langton, who has lived in his home for 45 years, saw the nature of his neighborhood change dramatically two years ago, when development came “right up to the property line.” While an initial application for relief resulted in a $200,000 reduction, this year’s assessment came in at more than $1.3 million for the 600-square-foot 1943 home, which sits on a 28,000 square-foot (.64 acre) lot.

“The house is valued at $31,000. It’s all about the land,” he said. Langton said a BC Assessment appraiser cited an increase in prices in the area but said his assessment could be knocked down to $965,000 – a 31 per cent increase. But he’s still frustrated. “The property is only worth a lot of money if you want to realize it and move to Sicamous. But my wife has lived here all her life,” he said. “I get a little p----d off because we’ve been living with a municipality that has infilled all the property around us. (BC Assessment) is comparing us with view lots, but the city allowed a 25-foot building in front of me. “I don’t see why we should be compared to the guy next door – we’re penalized because he’s taken a big profit.”

Attacker ‘disappointed’

Three-year rehabilitation for teenager Sheila Reynolds Black Press

The teen who stabbed Surrey dad Sam McGowan – killing him in the summer of 2009 – has been ordered to serve a three-year intensive rehabilitation and custody sentence. He is to spend six months in a youth detention centre, with the rest of the sentence spent in a rehabilitation and counselling program. The 17-yearold, who has already served one month of his prison term and who cannot be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, was convicted Sam McGowan of manslaughter last June and was sentenced in New Westminster Supreme Court Friday morning. He was 15 when he and a buddy committed two robberies, stealing cellphones from teens – including McGowan’s son. McGowan, 42, gave chase, finding the youth hiding behind a tent trailer. McGowan yelled and the teen ran. The youth then turned and plunged a knife into McGowan’s chest, killing him. The youth was charged with second-degree murder, but was found guilty by a jury of the lesser charge of manslaughter. The defence argued he feared for his life. In December, the teen apologized in court: “It’s something I’m going to regret for the rest of my life.” His lawyer, David Tarnow, said Friday that his client, who had no prior criminal record, was “very disappointed” with the sentence because he felt he’d been doing well since his arrest. In court, Justice Laura Gerow said the sentence was not a measure of the value of the victim’s life. “There is nothing this court can do to fix the pain... that Mr. McGowan’s family has suffered.” McGowan’s family said that while the accused did not receive a lot of jail time, six months is more than they expected.

A pair of dogs check each other out at Freedom Park, an off-leash area near 154 Street and 84 Avenue.

City of Surrey calls for 14 new dog parks by 2021

Canine population leaps and bounds Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Esther Kwan packed her seven-month-old Korean Jindo, J.J., into her car Friday and motored down to Freedom Park, a small, offleash area in Fleetwood. When she arrived, there were five other people with dogs – a small group, as that number sometimes reaches 20. For Kwan, the park is a necessity. Walking J.J. on a leash simply wouldn’t do the trick. “He needs his exercise,” she says. J.J. jumps into the excited cluster of canines, which as a group begin to growl, leap and tumble over each other. The play is an important part of socialization, and it’s a crucial aspect in raising stable and non-aggressive dogs. This type of interaction can’t occur while a pooch is leashed and walking on pavement. The demand for off-leash dog parks, by both man and his best friend, is growing. According to figures from a recent study commissioned by the city, Surrey is home to more than 127,000 dogs, exceeding the human populations of most cities in the region. More than one in four residents (27 per cent) own a dog. The high number of canines creates a large demand on park space,

prompting the city to adopt its second longterm plan for off-leash parks – the City of Surrey 2012-2021 Off-Leash Area Strategy. It follows a 2001-2010 study that called for seven dog parks in Surrey, and now that those are built, the city has endorsed a pooch plan – based on a comprehensive $100,000 study – calling for 14 new dog parks by 2021. Five of those are to be created between 2012 and 2015, located at: Pioneer Greenway (South Surrey); Panorama Park (Newton); a corner of Bear Creek Park (Newton); Fraser View Park (Guildford); and Bolivar Park (Whalley). Those parks have community support for accommodating canines off-leash, with 94 per cent of people at area open houses supporting the need for more dog parks. The study found that 38,000 dog owners visit a dog park every week, and almost 13,000 people said they visit one with their dog every day. That makes for crowded parks, and with the pooch population growing – city staff say there will be 154,000 by 2021 – there’s a need for more off-leash spaces. From 2015 to 2018, Surrey plans to install six more parks at the following sites: a corner of Bakerview Park (South Surrey); Colebrook Park (Panorama Ridge); Bonnie Schrenk Park (Fleetwood); BC Hydro right-of-way, near 184

Street (Cloverdale); Queen Elizabeth Meadows (Whalley); and Joe Brown Park (West Newton). Because of the timeline, Surrey staff plan to undertake another public consultation process to ensure there is enough support for the parks being used for off-leash dogs. “When we get parks that are far enough out in the future, we wouldn’t rely on what I call stale planning information,” said Surrey’s manager of parks Owen Croy. Croy said the city is confident the first park to be constructed this year will be Pioneer Greenway Park, just to the east of the new pedestrian Pioneer Overpass in South Surrey. “It will have a small-dog area, a large-dog area and some other amenity features.” After those are built, three more are to be added between 2018 to 2021 at: Latimer Lake Park (in the southeast corner of Surrey); Forsyth Park (west of 140 Street in the City Centre); and Port Mann Park (at the old landfill site in northeast Surrey). Croy said the creation of more off-leash dog parks is an exciting prospect and expands on a growing use for Surrey parks. “Dog ownership gives people a reason to get out and walk the dog, which not only provides the individual companionship, but outside exercise,” Croy said.

City did not panic, Campbell says  from page 1 “Staff acted quickly to address a serious safety issue and to ensure a continuation of the pier lighting with as little disruption as possible,” he writes. In Baldwin’s prepared statement last week, he complained the previous council was hurried into a decision to replace the aging lights and should have been given more warning. According to Campbell, waiting wouldn’t have made a difference. “A delay would not have produced any more information, and it would only have served to ensure a dark, closed pier over the Christmas period,” he writes. “(That was) not an option. Council was well aware of the issues

and wisely chose to ensure… pier lighting was restored for our Christmas and winter season.” Campbell notes the money was already set aside for pier maintenance, and that the city had to move quickly to take advantage of federal grant money he estimates was more than $30,000, not the $20,000 cited by the mayor. Campbell also condemned Baldwin’s comments on the way city staff handled the matter. Baldwin – formerly White Rock’s city manager for 23 years – warned “in the future staff must bring forward reports dealing with contractual work in a more timely fashion.” There should be “no more lastminute panic attacks,” he said. “I was surprised that Mayor

Baldwin criticized staff in public,” Campbell writes. “It is one thing to criticize council as part of the political fray because we can respond, staff cannot.” Campbell disputed Baldwin’s charge that council was “disrespectfully denied the opportunity to even discuss whether it was in favour of replacing the temporary Christmas arches with permanent arches – which increased the project cost by at least $200,000.” “The arches were always part of the proposal and (cost) $100,000 not $200,000 as incorrectly stated,” Campbell writes. The mayor made his remarks after receipt of a report explaining the installation missed a Dec. 15 deadline due to a delivery issue.

Mayor’s remarks leave them speechless


magine, if you will, that Sir Humphrey Appleby, the comically manipulative civil servant played by Nigel Hawthorne in the British television series, Yes, Minister, gave up his behind-the-scenes maneuvering to be elected to government. It would be very bad news for any civil servant who tried to do what he used to, namely pulling the wool over the eyes of elected politicians who are supposedly his masters. No one is better qualified to understand the machinations of the public service than a former public servant. While he may be a far cry from Sir Humphrey, it should come as no surprise that the newly elected mayor of White Rock, Wayne Baldwin, is closely interested in the way city staff follows procedure, considering he served 23 years as city manager before he retired in 2006. Baldwin has been openly critical of the way the previous mayor and council approved the funding of new lights and arches for the city’s famous pier last fall, saying it was “poorly processed.” Staff, Baldwin said, resurrected a project that had failed to win budget approval by suddenly turning it into what he called an “alleged” safety issue. The result, he said, was that construction proceeded on an “unrealistically tight” timeline. Baldwin has warned that, in future, staff will be expected to follow “strictly” tendering procedures, which require more advance notice. As Baldwin made his remarks, the man who got the pier overhaul approved, director of engineering and municipal operations Rob Thompson, sat mum without making any attempt to defend his actions, because he isn’t allowed to. That is something the mayor should recognize, as Coun. Al Campbell pointed out in an email last week to Peace Arch News. “I was surprised that Mayor Baldwin criticized staff in public, especially given his staff experience,” Campbell said. “It is one thing to criticize council as part of the political fray because we can respond, staff cannot.” The new mayor has also served notice that he will be taking a hard look at the system of committees set up to give advice to the mayor and councillors, with a view to making the system more efficient by eliminating some and restricting others. Whether watching White Rock council meeting live or as recorded on community television, it might just be an interesting year to stay tuned. Yes, mayor?

The BCTF, again to the media rather than at the bargaining table, allowed that its total package would cost $565 million. Again, no calculations were produced. BCPSEA estimates the union’s proposal would cost an additional $880 million over three years. And that’s not counting the union’s demand for $300 million a year to reduce class sizes and increase special needs support staff. Teachers are still being compensated under the final terms of a contract that provided 16 per cent in wage increases over five years, in the midst of a harsh recession. And here’s a fun math fact. With percentage wage increases, three plus six plus six doesn’t equal 15. It’s closer to 16, because later raises are calculated on a larger base. So on wages alone, the BCTF wants the same in three years that it just got in five, at a time when private sector unions take layoffs and wage cuts, and the province is billions in the red. The president of the Langley Teachers’ Association went on CKNW radio and succinctly summed up the BCTF’s position. Raise income taxes across the board. Gordon Campbell cut everyone’s taxes by 25 per cent in 2001, and cut education to pay for it. They’re still fighting the 2005 election. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and The Peace Arch News is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry. The council considers complaints from the public about the conduct of member newspapers. Directors oversee the mediation of complaints, with input from both the newspaper and the complaint holder.

When in doubt, post the note Editor: Thank you for letting people know it’s possible to avoid getting a smart meter right away simply by informing BC Hydro and posting a note on your meter. Faced with thousands of reports of ill health effects and complaints regarding the surveillance capabilities and security vulnerabilities of smart meters, utilities commissions in more and more North American jurisdictions are reversing policy and ensuring citizens the right to keep their analog meter, or sometimes to choose a safer phone line-connected smart meter. People in B.C. will eventually also gain the freedom to decide for themselves if they want to take the privacy and health risks. BC Hydro contractors Corix Utilities are destroying the analog meters as fast as they replace them. If you’re not 100 per cent sure that you want a smart meter, it might be an idea to download a sign from Citizens for Safe Technology and put it up. My guess is, it will be easier and less expensive just to keep your old meter than to wait in line for BC Hydro to find you a new analog meter and schedule a retrofit. Ed Rubin, Surrey

fought for and built this country on. Issue three: teachers are not spoiled, rich workers; there is a $20,000 discrepancy with the rest of Canada. We are not overpaid for what we do – on average, teachers work 10 hours per week above contractual hours. During reporting, that doubles (Surrey Teacher Association survey). We are not just there to make money, but to make kids the best that they can be. Society makes choices; choose our future, not corporate tax savings. Lastly: the BCTF is a social justice union – it is democratic – it is teachers, not some leftist political entity as some papers and unionhaters, at times, brand it. Actions are taken after consulting locals and surveying members. This past weekend, the representative assembly took place. Teachers debated their next step in bargaining. Any decisions by the assembly will be voted on again by every single teacher. When you stand with teachers, you stand for quality public education and society’s future, before it’s too late! Neovi Patsicakis, Surrey Special Education Teacher and Parent

Silver lining to GHG nightmare Editor: Our modern lives would be unimaginable without electricity, and equally unimaginable without the communication and information technologies we’ve all come to know and love. But what most people probably never stop to think about is the fact that the lion’s share of electricity generated worldwide, which powers all this technology, comes from burning old-fashioned coal. People might therefore be shocked to know that the world’s communications and information technology sector now rivals the airline industry in terms of carbon and other greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. But there’s a potential silver lining to this carbon nightmare, because the information and communications technology that consumes so much electricity also makes it possible to put information and files, and make use of software, on remote computer servers that can be accessed from anywhere in

the world. Thus, if a significant percentage of the world’s computer servers and related equipment was physically moved to places like B.C. where we have an abundance of clean, renewable energy, those servers could be powered minus the burning of coal and be free of carbon and other greenhouse gas emissions. In fact, it’s actually a lot easier to transmit bits of data than it is to transmit electricity, and that simple fact represents a golden opportunity for B.C. Moving bits of data could open up B.C.’s renewable energy resources to the world in a way that is not possible with clean electricity alone. Bits of data can flow easily between B.C. and any place in the world, whereas B.C.-generated clean electricity can only flow to places physically connected to B.C.’s transmissions grid. Relocating the world’s computer servers to B.C., the clean energy capital of the world, could therefore add a whole new dimension to our province’s growing clean energy offerings and result in economic diversity while spurring new job creation in communities that could greatly benefit from it. Charles Davis, White Rock

Teacher issue multi-faceted Editor: Issue one: Bills 27 and 28 broke the collective agreement 10 years ago and resulted in the loss of classsize and composition guarantees. The laying off of thousands of teachers and specialists followed. For 10 years, children have not been given the service they deserve. Packed classes, hallways, dangerous workshops and labs are ignored. So are special needs students and second-language learners. Improvements in our working conditions mean better learning for children. Teachers had fought hard for improvements, giving up salary. Issue two: teachers are not being respected; hard-earned rights such as seniority and transfer procedures are threatened, along with choice in professional development. The government only briefly consults parents and teachers via the Internet to pass an idealistic, impossible new education plan, perhaps costing billions to implement. which may result in further teacher cuts and impersonal computerized learning. You, the public, must stop the cuts, speak out with teachers, call us up, write, tweet and tell this government that they cannot ignore a court decision. Fix Bills 28 and 29 and restore teachers’ bargaining rights. How sad when teachers in this province are denied the simple right to strike, which Canadian workers

Small businesses like those along Marine Drive need encouragement, not frustration, writes Ron Eves.

Let voters guide the city’s future Editor: Re: Centres grow from history, Jan. 17 letters. A recent letter to the editor challenged the very existence and culture of the City of White Rock. I am confident that the citizens of White Rock are generally a proud lot, and happy being distinct from other jurisdictions with a past that commenced in the early 1900s. The City of White Rock is truly a gem in one of the most southerly points of the Lower Mainland. It has a spectacular view of Semiahmoo Bay, including an international boundary which is something developers have been eyeing for many years. My visits to Marine Drive weekly indicate a high mortality rate for small business, the small engine that drives commerce in general. White Rock as a whole seems to have many unresolved issues that prohibit it from becoming an all-season retreat comparable to the

City of West Vancouver and their Dundarav. I suspect they are somewhat the handiwork of special interest groups left unchallenged that wish resistance to a vibrant small business community on Marine Drive. The City of White Rock must work on a more comprehensive long-term plan with a watchful eye on developers. Efforts this term must be to embrace and encourage small business, not frustrate small merchants and the public alike with suffocating parking regulations during fall and winter months. There are those who may feel that Granville and Robson is the best reference point towards defining what the City of White Rock should be. I advance that it best be left to those elected at the polls by voters, and not developers and special interest groups. Ron Eves, White Rock

perspectives …on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Showcasing the hard work and dedication of past firefighters in White Rock

Exhibit paints ‘vivid picture’ of an era Staff Reporter


hen the revamped White Rock Museum and Archives opened its doors last year, there was just one downside to public reaction to the first show, the travelling exhibit Aliens Among Us. As fascinating as the survey of invasive species of flora and fauna in B.C. was, for some it just didn’t have that local ‘zing’ to it to reaffirm one of the museum’s mandates – as a showcase of White Rock’s own history. No such criticism can be levelled at the current show, Emergency and Everyday Assistance: A History of Fire Rescue In White Rock. Created by collections and exhibits co-ordinator Jasmine Moore, in partnership with White Rock Fire Rescue – with a strong assist from museum community historian Hugh Ellenwood and a variety of eager volunteers – the show is a fitting tribute to the firefighters who have been inextricably linked with the evolution of the community from its pioneer days. Detailed information – and a wealth of memorabilia and artifacts – contributed by retired White Rock fire chief Peter Duke, current fire chief Phil Lemire and Scott Booth, local president of Alex Browne photos the International Association of Clockwise from left: White Rock Museum and Archives’ Jasmine Moore shows off a 1957 fire helmet; a Firefighters, are complemented modern-day protective suit; and, memorabilia from a fire that threatened White Rock Elementary. by the museum’s archival photographs and artifacts from wooden pioneer stores and the flames and thick black smoke 1980s – the language helps create the permanent collection to create residences – that have tested the issuing from the building, the a real sense of the times,” Moore a multi-faceted picture of the mettle of the community, defined parking lot across the street at the said. impact of firefighting, and other its resilience and lingered in the Great Northern station is full of Similarly, the historic eras of the emergency services, on White collective memory. what are now considered classic fires that threatened the original Rock.

of firefighting memorabilia from the past – including the air raidstyle alarm that used to sit on top of the White Rock firehall, antique hose nozzles, firemen’s helmets and badges and the case from the original La France inhalator donated by the Kinsman Club in 1947 – clearly one of the prizes is the original 1925 Studebaker fire truck that was acquired by the volunteer force when it was formally created in 1934. The truck, which served valiantly until 1951, was rescued from a collapsed barn in Abbotsford years ago and restored to its full glory by a group of volunteers that included Booth, plus members of the Shriners and the Teamsters’ Union. But there’s also up-to-date equipment in the exhibit including a modern protective suit worn by a female mannequin – a nod to the fact that women are very much part of contemporary firefighting operations. “Also, to give a more modern aspect, the display covers how useful and involved in the community firefighters are,” Moore said – pointing to a cycle used in last year’s cross-Canada Shore2Shore Ride to benefit the Variety Club’s children’s charities. “White Rock firefighters donate 30 days each year to charity events, which is a huge amount of their time,” Moore said. Not neglecting the artistic aspect – a continuing focus of the museum – the student art wall features fire-and-rescue-themed paintings produced by students of Elgin Park Secondary. “It’s wonderful to see the creativity and imagination they bring to this,” Moore said. Museum and archives executive director Sharon Oldaker said the exhibit, which has been in the works since October, exemplifies the newly-renovated museum in action. “I’m so excited to have this show here – and excited for the community,” she said. “It’s great to show something that is so close to people’s hearts.” Erin Cebula,BC Children’s Hospital Spokesperson

Grand Re-Opening

Ocean Park resident focuses on animal rescues after disasters

Reuniting pets and owners Sarah Massah


Staff Reporter

When disaster struck Japan in March 2011, news channels around the world focused on the plight of the people who were searching for loved ones. Donations were quickly set up, relief was organized and the prayers of people from all over the world were sent to the people of Japan. With updates on the status of the Japanese people streaming in every hour, Vincent Eagle’s then 12-year-old son only had one question. “He looked at me and he said, ‘Look at all the money going to save the people. What happens to their pets?’” Eagle said. The question hit home for the Ocean Park resident, and as more pictures of animals stuck in the disaster-riddled country came on the television screen in the days following the earthquake and tsunami, Eagle was spurred into action. “It played on me for a bit. I began to do a bit of research and talked to some people about what we could do,” he said. “It took a long time to get together, we didn’t just hop onto our white horses and spear some dragons. There was a lot of conversation.” The result of the conversations was Pet Rescue Worldwide, an organization solely dedicated to caring for animals in disaster zones. Eagle said he was partly inspired by White Rock resident, Chizue Lister, who travelled to Japan after the disaster to find and care

for animals that had been left behind. “I read about what she was doing, and I sent her an email when we were first setting up,” said Eagle, adding that time restraints have made it difficult to connect. Eagle has had animals in his life since he was young, giving him firsthand knowledge about the love between pet and owner. The self-proclaimed cat-lover said the worry that a person feels when their pet is missing can be detrimental to their recovery. “People in a shelter won’t be able to relax; they can’t feel normal without knowing where their loved ones are, and their pets are their loved ones,” he said. “How can you possibly operate if you have to worry about your pet?” The motto for the organization

– Find, Feed, Mend and Unite – is close to Eagle’s heart, which led him and the team to set up the pet registry. Pet owners can take a photo of their pet to submit to the registry, with a description and other information in case they go missing following a disaster. “If you have someone in the hospital and you can tell them, ‘we have a picture, we have a description, we are looking for your pet,’ it goes such a long way – even longer if you find the pet,” Eagle said. Eagle says hes hopes by starting local he will be able to get a solid base. “You know you may not change the world, but it’s important to know what you can do.” For more information, go to

eddings are a whirlwind of memories, from the first kiss as a married couple to the first dance. But getting to that stage can take a lot of work. Two major factors to consider when you start is vision and budget, says Jaclyn Helle, owner and principal planner of 6Pence Wedding Planning and Design. Most brides have a vision of what they want their day to look like, whether it’s intimate or grand, colourful and bright or white and simple, rustic or chic and modern, the list goes on. But getting to that vision means having a well thought out budget. Although it is traditional for the bride’s parents to provide the budget, more and more couples are paying for their own weddings with some help from parents. Regardless, Helle suggests sitting down with the people in control of the budget to explain the vision and come to an agreement that works for everyone. “Once that is done, you can get to the fun stuff... Planning!” she said. Helle’s approach to wedding planning is “anything and everything” including do-ityourself projects (which are becoming popular for those who are budget-conscious) or selecting vendors and venues. Planners like Helle typically have connections with various vendors which can help when choosing flowers, food and music. Having an experienced person guide the process eases the stress on a couple, allowing them to focus on what’s really important: the journey to marriage. As for trends, Helle admits she is not a fortune teller, but she has a passion for weddings, and has some suggestions for newly engaged couples. “If I were to guess what this year’s trends would be, I would say balance,” she said. “Making a ballroom feel intimate or making a ranch wedding glamourous; it is the balance between glamour and girl-nextdoor.” And for those who are sticklers for the rules, Helle says slowly all those sticky dos and don’ts for weddings are being let go. “It is no longer expected you will have bridesmaids in the same dresses, hide from the groom before the ceremony or have a Saturday wedding,” she said. Having a more open mind to how the wedding can look helps to reflect a couple through the big day. But don’t completely throw tradition away, Helle says. “The one thing I love to keep traditional is etiquette. Amongst everybody’s busy lives, simple things like a handwritten mailing address on the invitation or a thank you card is simply the right way to do it.”

A few touch-ups can make all the difference

A Beautiful Beginning... Perfect smile for the big day One big key to being confident on your big day is having a great smile. With hundreds of pictures being snapped from various angles, it’s important you feel comfortable and cameraready with your smile. For some, the wedding day may be just the motivation required to fix problems with teeth that keep getting put off. And with so many different ways to fix your teeth, there is no reason to hold back on looking perfect for the wedding day, says White Rock Orthodontics’ Dr. Jay Nagamatsu. “When you think of weddings there are so many photos taken and it’s a point of time in your life that is important,” he said. “When you go back and look at pictures, of course you want to have a great smile.” For a bride or groom looking to straighten their smile out, Nagamatsu recommends Invisalign treatments – convenient and removable clear liner therapy. “The beauty of that is you can still be in treatment and have your photos taken,” he said. In order for the process to begin a full patient exam must be completed, then there is an evaluation on jaw joints, facial symmetry and teeth bites to make sure the liner is a perfect fit for the user. And for some the process could be a simple fix, Nagamatsu said. “As long as teeth, gums and the bones are healthy, the process can pretty much start in a couple of weeks, depending on where the bite is and how much improvement is required,” he said. For something less drastic, there is the option of whitening teeth for the

He recommends Opalscence take-home whitening because of the degree of control it allows. “You can control the shade. Sometimes it can be too white or not white enough when you do it in the office,” he said. Another benefit of at home versus the dentist is that the whitening processes at home causes less sensitivity, and it’s very simple to maintain, with just a touch-up every six months.

Having a professional photographer snapping the shots on your wedding day is crucial.



Your wedding day is one of the most important days in your life, and one that you will want to reflect on for years to come, which is why it’s essential to choose the best photographer suited to your needs Adrienne Thiessen, photographer and owner of Gemini Visuals Photography, says a major factor in hiring a photographer is finding one with adequate experience. With more than 15 years under her belt, Adrienne says she comes prepared for the worst with each of her shoots, something a novice photographer may not think of doing. “You want a photographer who will come with a backup camera in case there is a problem with the first one. You only have that one shot of the big kiss at the altar, you can’t go back and do it again,� she said. “I’ve heard horror stories about a photographer who has had to use a relatives camera because his didn’t work.� She also recommends that the couple consider hiring a photographer who is a constant

working professional, opposed to someone who takes photos as a hobby. For a professional photographer, there is a constant need to manage time and make sure they remain inconspicuous so as not to draw away from the couple and their family, she said. Another huge factor in hiring a photographer is making sure you get along, she says. “Make sure the photographer gets to know you and vice versa, that way you can make sure the day of the wedding is really organized and everything is timed to a tee,� she said, adding that she usually does a run through for her clients. It’s also important to have candid photos. From her experience, Thiessen’s best shots have been the ones showcasing the couple’s true personality. And if you do find someone you like, it’s important you book them well in advance. According to Thiessen, a photographer specializing in wedding photos can be booked a good year in advance.

Thanking your wedding party When you start planning your wedding, it’s a relief to know you have a close group of friends making up the wedding party to fall back on for help. There are many ways to repay your dedicated bridesmaids and groomsmen for their support, from beautiful jewelry to gifts for your foodie friends. Over at Rochell’s Jewelry in Semiahmoo Shopping Centre, Amin recommends one of the hundreds of Swarovski crystal items they have in stock. As the official retailer for the brand, the store has an unbeatable selection, from Swarovski crystal figurines to jewelry and everything in between. At Natalia Jewellers in Morgan Crossing, Corey has a wide selection of gifts to give the wedding party to fit all budgets. From diamond and gold necklaces and earrings starting as low as $29 to cubic zirconia and silver jewelry starting at $5.99. Some suggestions for pieces include gemstone pendants and matching earrings – especially if a bride chooses a gemstone

colour to match the bridesmaids’ dresses. According to Corey, the stones are relatively budget-friendly and can be set in yellow or white gold or silver depending on the colours and tones the bride wants. Another gift idea is the classic and elegant pearl, which is a great fit for most weddings, Corey said. “They complement, for the most part, any shade of bridesmaids dresses a bride chooses,” he said. “A pearl can be worn forever afterwards, whether it’s worn with a pair of blue denims, a dressy sweater, a classic cardigan or even a little black dress.” For the men, watches are a great gift, with the bride and grooms name and the special date engraved on the watch - adding the personal touch makes a special keepsake for members of the wedding party. For groomsmen, Corey suggests tie clips and cufflinks, either in silver or stainless steel. Almost all the items at Natalia Jewellers can be engraved, including flasks and lighters. But if your friends are more on the foodie side, Kitchen Therapy has a plethora of gift ideas. Some staff suggestions include items from their Ritzenhoff line. The quirky colours and designers of the European brand make for a unique gift your friends and family will be able to not only enjoy but use. The collection at Kitchen Therapy include bright and funky espresso cups and saucers for coffee drinkers, piggie banks – with patterns including cheetah print and stripes – and beautifully embellished wine glasses all for less than $80. Speaking of wine glasses, Kitchen Therapy also has aerators and decanters for the winelovers in your wedding party, as well.

Despite our lush forests and warm temperature, it’s hard to plan an outdoor wedding in B.C. because of the rain. But if you have your heart set on a warm, sunny wedding day, why not take it a step further and plan a destination wedding? For people living here on the West Coast, the most popular locations for a destination wedding include Hawaii, Mexico and multiple destinations via cruise ships. According to Nellie Snow at White Rock Travel, a destination wedding is a great way to reduce the stress level for the groom and the bride. “They don’t have to worry about their guests,” she said. “The guests are responsible for their accommodations and if they have questions they deal with us.” It’s all about providing the best service possible whether it’s getting different hotels to pick from, financial quotes or planning their group, she has the experience to deal with it. Stephanie Owens at Marlin Travel recommends destination weddings because of the convenience. With many resorts carrying wedding packages, there is an on-site coordinator to help with the wedding on the resort’s end, she said.

“People love it because it’s so easy. Everything is taken care of – the food, the flowers and the photographers,” she said. After the agent initiates contact with the bride and the co-ordinator, it is up to the bride and groom to hash out the finer details. For those who are planning a honeymoon, Marlin Travels has a honeymoon registry so guests can contribute to the honeymoon. But there are some things that have to be considered when marrying in another country, said Snow. For example, in the Dominican Republicm, all the documenation needs to be translated into Spanish and there is only one company that can do it in Toronto. In Mexico, there is a requirement of a blood test, although Snow admits she is not sure exactly why, she thinks it may be to ensure the couple is not related. “Each destination has it’s own quirks,” she said. One thing that definitely helps when it comes to booking your wedding is to book in advance, Owens said. She recommends at least one year to ensure everything is organized in time for the special day.

Players Club

Roger Currie, Sheila Keating, Vanessa Klein and Sarah Green feature in the production of Drinking Alone, Feb. 8-25 at Coast Capital Playhouse.

First show of the year in the current White Rock Players Club season at Coast Capital Playhouse (1532 Johnston Rd.) is Norm Foster’s Drinking Alone, directed by Susanne de Pencier, running Feb. 8-25. Relying on the grand old standby of playwriting – the family reunion – Foster’s situation comedy centres on the uneasy meeting of two adult children with their long-estranged father Ivan (Players Club veteran Roger Currie) – with new wife, Phyllis (Sheila Keating) in tow – after 15 years of virtually no contact. The daughter, Carrie (newcomer Sarah Green), an apparently successful TV news reader, is tee-

tering on the edge of being an alcoholic, just like the mother to whose not-so-tender mercies their father abandoned them. The son, Joe (Terry Thomas), is an unambitious man who runs the family’s moribund drycleaning business. In an attempt to convince his father he’s not a loser, he hires an escort, Renee (Vanessa Klein), to masquerade as his fiancee. And that’s the source of many of the laughs in the show: cautioned not to say much about the couple’s history together, the chatty Renee can’t stop herself from weaving an elaborate tapestry of fantasy. Evening performances are at 8 p.m. Wednesday to Saturday, with

Edwin Drood Three players well known to local audiences – Emma Rendell (who played the title role in Impromptu Theatre’s 2008 Thoroughly Modern Millie), and James Walker and Mike Wild (who have both played leads in Fraser Valley Gilbert Sullivan Society shows) – lend their talents to Fighting Chance Productions’ upcoming production of Rupert Holmes’ Tony Award-winning musical, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, which runs Feb. 18 to 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 Jekyll-and-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. Musical direction is by Vashti Fairbairn and choreography is by Dawn Ewen. Tickets range from $10 to $30 and are available at the door, online at or by calling 604-684-2787. To find out more, visit www.

At Crescent Gardens, it’s all about choices The thought of moving into a retirement residence can be a difficult decision for many seniors concerned about losing the ability to choose how they spend their day. Maintaining independence is such an important issue to people of all ages, so it was an obvious decision for Merle Alexander to choose Crescent Gardens Retirement Community as her new home. Five years later, Alexander said she has not only been able to live independently, but she also has the choice to partake in the countless group activities and trips the facility offers. “I have the best of both worlds,”

she said. “It is the best move I have ever made.” Just a short ways from beautiful beaches, shops, restaurants and the Peace Arch Border crossing, the retirement residence – located at 1222 King George Blvd. – offers a variety of lifestyle options for the young at heart. The 110 suites in the four-storey building include one- and twobedroom full-service rental suites (which include breakfast, lunch and dinner), as well as condominiums where residents can cook for themselves or choose to eat in the  see page 27

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give up what you love because of pain


Stay active despite arthritis Individuals with arthritis are often stuck between a rock and a hard place. Doctors want people to exercise to keep up the range of motion in affected joints, however, even some limited movements can cause pain and suffering to those with arthritis. Instead of simply sitting on the couch watching television, there are a number of different things arthritis sufferers can do to pass the time such as reconnecting with past hobbies and interests. It might

just take a little re-outfitting of the tools that are needed to participate. Gardening is a popular pastime for people of all ages. But the repetitive motions of digging and tilling as well as gripping a multitude of tools can take the joy out of the hobby. People with arthritis can make some changes. Raised garden beds or container gardening eliminates the stooping and bending of traditional gardening. With

containers, individuals can place the containers on a counter or table and do all the work at a comfortable height. Having arthritis doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean a person has to give up on the activities they love. Choosing lowmaintenance plants is another option. Plants that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t require as much pruning or repotting are good for those with arthritis. Also, look for tools with larger grips and handles to be easier on arthritic hands. Many people with arthritis find the fine detail work they grew accustomed to is not very comfortable with arthritis. Instead, there are many other crafts that can be practical. Ceramics are one craft where the activity can also be the exercise. Using a pottery wheel or handmolding doughs and other modeling media can be a way to stretch and work the hands and fingers. By choosing tools with wide handles, it makes grasping easier.

Bodychecking decision affects house-league players

Schedule, divisions altered for 2012/13

Minor hockey bans hitting

BCHL changes again Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Rick Kupchuk Black Press

Hoping to make the game safer for thousands of players from the Sunshine Coast to Hope, the Pacific Coast Amateur Hockey Association (PCAHA) has overwhelmingly voted to eliminate bodychecking at the recreational (house or C) level. At an extraordinary meeting last week (Jan. 22) in Cloverdale, representatives of the 42 minor hockey associations under the umbrella of PCAHA voted 123-39 in favour of the resolution. The decision affects more than 300 minor hockey teams in the Pee Wee (11-12 year-olds), Bantam (13-14) and Midget (15-17) divisions. The executive of Semiahmoo Minor Hockey “voted unanimously in favour of the rule ❝It reflects how change,” said president people want to see Ian Maguire. hockey played.

With concussions and things like that, people are worried,” Maguire added. The decision does not affect A-level (rep) hockey, or the Juvenile (18-20) division. Sunday’s meeting was called to deal with a report submitted by a committee struck to address the issue. The committee – comprised of a number of minor hockey presidents and managing directors – noted that registration in minor hockey is declining and the risk of injury is one of the reasons. “There are a lot of people within our association with deep hockey backgrounds, and some are against the change, and some are for it,” said Maguire. “But you talk to any parent whose kid has had

Five of the other seven districts do not allow bodychecking at the recreational level. PCAHA members dealt with the issue this month as opposed to at the annual general meeting in May in order to have the rule change in effect before minor hockey associations begin registration for next season in the spring. Another possible bodychecking ban may be in place before the puck drops on the 2012-13 season next September.

A second resolution passed Sunday calls for PCAHA members to support any resolution brought forward at BC Hockey’s annual general meeting in June that would prohibit bodychecking at the Pee Wee A level. “It doesn’t make sense to ban it (bodychecking) at Pee Wee A within Pacific Coast if the rest of the province doesn’t,” said George Windsor, president of North Delta Minor Hockey. “It would put our teams at a disadvantage at provincials. “We don’t have provincials in house hockey.” - with files from Nick Greenizan

The BC Hockey League season will get a week longer and four games shorter next season, after league governors passed a number of motions at its semiannual meeting last week in Richmond. For the 2012-2013 season, each team in the BCHL will play 56 games, down from 60, in an attempt to minimize the number of mid-week games teams play. Historically, midweek games – especially in the Lower Mainland, including Surrey – have drawn mediocre crowds. Under the new system, more games will be held on Friday and Saturday nights. “I think it’s good. With the economy the way it is, I think this will really help (team’s finances),” said Surrey Eagles head coach and general manager Matt Erhart. “Before, if you had a Wednesday night game and the Canucks were playing on TV, it was basically a success if you lost money.” It was also decided that the start of the regular season would be Sept. 14 – this year it began Sept. 23 – while a showcase event, held to attract scouts, will be held in a select city Sept. 7-9, with each team playing twice, and results counting in the regular-season standings. The season would end March 10, two weeks earlier than in the past. The league will again re-jig its conferences and divisions. Starting next season, there will be 10 teams in the Coastal Conference – split into Island and Mainland divisions, as has been done in the past – including Chilliwack and Prince George. The new-look Interior Conference will feature the  see page 31

sports Surrey loses by one point against Trail Smoke Eaters

Eagles ‘unlucky’ in overtime Rick Kupchuk Black Press

Playing against a pair of struggling hockey teams on home ice at the South Surrey Arena, the Surrey Eagles couldn’t get a win. The B.C. Hockey League team lost 5-4 in overtime to the Trail Smoke Eaters Friday night, then rallied from two-goals down in the last five minutes to play for a 4-4 tie with the Victoria Grizzlies Sunday evening. “I thought in certain situations in each game, we made some costly errors,” said Eagles head coach Matt Erhart after Sunday’s contest. “This weekend, it seemed every good chance we gave up ended up in the back of the net. We gave up 48 shots total in two games and gave up nine goals.” The Smoke Eaters had just eight wins in 40 games going into Friday’s contest, and trailed 3-1 after 20 minutes. Demico Hannoun scored all three Eagles goals, each tally assisted by brothers Brandon and Tyler Morley. Trail’s Erik Cooper tallied twice in the second period to tie the game after 40 minute, and Connor Tiechko’s second of the game had the visitors up 4-3 early in the final frame. Alex Hagen pulled Surrey even with less then three minutes to play, but in the final minute of the first overtime period, Brandon Long scored to give Trail the victory. “That’s the way the league is, every game is tight,” said Erhart. “You can’t take anyone lightly. And it seems teams

Prince George will have the option to return to the Interior Conference after next season, perhaps opening the door for a new team to join the Coastal Conference. Earlier this month, a bid by Washington’s Wenatchee Wild of the North American Junior Hockey League was rejected by USA Hockey without a reason provided. And while it may seem odd to put Prince George in a division with teams in the Lower Mainland – even temporarily – Erhart said it’s really not that big of a deal. Under the new schedule, Lower Mainland teams would play each other 11 times, and would only have to play Prince George four times, which could be covered off in one doubleheader trip for each team. “People look at that alignment and they say, ‘wow’ but it’s really not too bad,” Erhart said. “And besides, next year we’ll only have to make a couple trips to the Island, and this year we’re making seven, so that saves our team a lot of money, too.

“I kind of like the structure of it all.” A playoff format for next season has yet to be determined; teams were asked to submit their playoff ideas to the league by Feb. 1. It’s not the first time the BCHL has altered its schedule, divisions or playoff format. In recent years, the league has bounced between various division/conference alignments, and the 2007/08 system was even formatted in such a way that every Coastal Conference team made the playoffs. “These decisions were not made in haste and came only after lengthy debate by our governors,” said BCHL commissioner John Grisdale in a release. “The BCHL considers itself an innovator and model for Junior A hockey in Canada and these decisions, not all of them unanimous, have been made with the intention of ensuring the long-term viability of our league.” Though not outlined in the BCHL’s release on the governor’s meeting, Erhart said the league would be nudging roster sizes back to “22 or 23” as opposed to this year’s limit of 21, which leaves little wiggle room for teams once injuries hit.

A lover of music and literature, he was a world traveller and did development work in the Phillipines. His most important role though was as a father and pillar of his family.
