Claim filed in B.C. Supreme Court last month

Woods sues Annable for online remark Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

Former White Rock Coun. Margaret Woods is suing political adversary Cliff Annable for calling her a “git” in a comment posted on the Peace Arch News website last September. In a written claim filed Dec. 21 in the Vancouver B.C. Supreme Court registry, Woods demands an unspecified amount of compen-

sation over the remarks, which were posted Sept. 23 by Annable using the pseudonym “charleymike.” In the online statement, posted as a comment to a PAN story, Annable asked whether another anonymous comment was the work of Woods’ spouse. “Are you Mr. Dickinson the husband of Margaret Woods (the git from Glasgow), who

is always negative and against everything,” the posting said. In October, Annable admitted to the newspaper that he was the author of that comment. Annable said two other comments posted by “charleymike” – one on Oct. 15 promoting Annable’s reputation, and another on Oct. 6 casting disparaging remarks against another

person were not made by him. In her lawsuit, Woods says after Annable confirmed he wrote the Sept. 23 statements, her lawyer contacted him and demanded an apology and retraction of the remarks. She says Annable has refused to date to do either. Woods’ claim states that Annable also  see page 4

Weather closes roads

Snow blankets Peninsula Snow that started falling on the weekend kept falling as the work week began, clogging sidewalks and sending vehicles skidding throughout the Lower Mainland. The weather office issued a snowfall warning Monday, predicting accumulations of 15 to 20 cm through the night for the Fraser Valley and five to 10 cm for Metro Vancouver. The agency also said a strong ridge of high pressure building over northern B.C. will produce strong outflow winds through coastal valleys and inlets resulting in wind chill values near minus-20 degrees or colder. In White Rock, crews closed the usual roads on the steepest hills. People were allowed to access the affected roads at their own risk. City property owners were reminded that bylaws require them to remove all snow and ice from sidewalks near their property no later than 10 a.m. That includes commercial properties, apartments and single-family dwellings. Driving conditions elsewhere in Metro Vancouver were challenging. On Highway 1 RCMP were advising drivers Monday afternoon to stay off the route east of 232 Street, because of dozens of crashes. Also Monday, a jack-knifed semitrailer truck blocked 16 Avenue near 244 Street.

news White Rock RCMP seeking blond woman and red Mazda

Hit-and-run driver sought Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

White Rock RCMP are looking for a blond woman in her 40s and an older-model, red Mazda sedan with black trim in connection with a pedestrian hit-and-run Tuesday. A 39-year-old South Surrey woman was treated in hospital and released Jan. 10 after being struck by a car while walking westbound on Thrift Avenue, Const. Janelle Shoihet said in a news release issued Thursday morning. The victim was hit by a northbound vehicle that allegedly ran a stop sign around 7:10 p.m., as she crossed an alley just west of Johnston Road. She didn’t report the incident to police until the next day. Shoihet told Peace Arch News it’s possible the driver didn’t know the pedestrian was injured. She apparently stopped and spoke with the victim briefly, then left the scene eastbound on Thrift Avenue. The victim told police she can’t remember the conversation, but suspects she told the driver she wasn’t hurt, Shoihet said. Regardless, police are investigating it as a

hit-and-run. “It wasn’t until (the victim) was walking away she realized she was hurt more than she thought she was,” Shoihet said. “There was scuff marks all over her boots. She thought if she hadn’t jumped out of the way, she would’ve been under the lady’s car.” Police are appealing for the driver – described as a 40- to 45-year-old Caucasian woman, with shoulder-length blond hair and a medium build – to come forward. As well, anyone who may have witnessed the collision or with information regarding the identity of the driver is asked to contact police at 778-593-3600. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. Shoihet noted the incident offers lessons to drivers and pedestrians alike: all parties in a collision should always exchange contact information, even if injury or damage isn’t immediately obvious; and, pedestrians walking at night should take care to wear reflective or light-coloured clothing. “We’re lucky here. Had (the victim) been wearing reflective clothing, maybe the driver would’ve seen her sooner,” Shoihet said.

Batalia surveillance photos released Police have released new photographs related to the shooting of Maple Batalia last fall. Batalia, an up-andcoming model and actress, was gunned down in the parkade near Simon Fraser University last September. Police released new photographs on Friday of people of interest in relation to the shooting. Homicide investigators are asking the people in the photos, or anyone who knows them, to contact the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team.

news NightShift Street Ministries is getting into the work of treating the addicted

A ‘shift’ in dealing with poverty Kevin Diakiw Black Press

MaryAnne Connor has heard many people cry, but she’s never heard the type of wailing she did from Cheryl in 2007. In a world of hurt, suffering from cancer, AIDS and addiction, Cheryl was unburdening a life of pain. Three days later, she was dead. It was at that point, Connor, or MAC as her friends call her, decided feeding the homeless wasn’t enough. The head of Nightshift Street Ministries decided it was time to put her dream of villages for recovery from drugs and alcohol into action. “How many Cheryls have died since then?” she asks. Beginning this weekend, four people will be moving into a test house for recovery on a four-acre parcel of land in South Surrey. The treatment plan is simple, using the same method Connor has employed since she started working with the homeless in 2004: Love people until they learn to love themselves. From the trial house in South Surrey, NightShift is planning a Care Cottage Community on Bible Fellowship property at 64 Avenue and 150 Street. Modelled after a transitional care community on Whitbey Island, Wash., the centre is designed to help people in various stages of “brokenness” to integrate back into society, Connor explains. Still in the planning stages, the number of cottages depends on the size of stream setbacks from Hyland Creek and other density requirements. Connor plans to meet with city planners shortly before bringing a development proposal to council. The project is a long way from Connor’s humble beginnings in 2004, when her goal was simply to feed the homeless and share the Christian word of God with them. Back then, she operated out of the front of a church, and when that came to the attention of the city, NightShift was ushered out. Now, NightShift has a 4,000-sq.-ft. office space on King George Boulevard that accommodates a boardroom, kitchen, counselling offices and Sisters clothing consignment (which now has its own iPhone app in which clothing can be reserved for purchase). Connor is the brain trust behind the mission.

Former White Rock resident MaryAnne Connor, founder and president of NightShift Street Ministries, has been helping to feed the homeless for several years. She has plans to open a drug and alcohol recovery centre in Surrey and another in northern B.C. Before 2004, she was a high-end realtor living in White Rock. Eventually, she could no longer reconcile how she had a warm place to live, when so many did not. She gave up her practice and went full time into feeding the homeless. But she says God has told her to dream big. And that she has. Beyond the local Care Cottage, she has a Care Village in the works in Fort St. John. She has the use of 580 acres of property, provided by the South Fork Christian Soci-

ety, and has several three- and four-bedroom buildings, which are currently being retrofitted. It will be a working retreat, where people can learn cooking skills, carpentry, and other life skills. Connor works non-stop reaching out to people willing to give of their time, ideas and where possible, donations. Not long ago, she was telling someone about the Fort St. John property and he asked, “How are you going to get them

there?” She thought a bus was the most suitable and affordable way. Nonsense, he said, I’ve got a six-seater plane for you. Connor says she couldn’t have dreamed of having things fall into place as they are. And she thanks God she didn’t let her analytical thinking get in the way. “If I had thought this through, I wouldn’t have done it,” she says. “Do I regret it? Not for a second.”

Overall funding level still lower, critics complain

Eligibility restored for gambling grants Tom Fletcher Black Press

A parrot refuge on Vancouver Island can once again apply for a provincial grant.

Adult sports and arts groups, environmental and animal welfare agencies will once again be eligible to apply for grants from the B.C. government’s gambling revenues. Those groups were made ineligible after the government cut the budget for community grants following the 2008 recession. They can again apply for grants, but the total fund remains at $135 million, where it was set by Premier Christy Clark last year. Shortly after taking over as premier, Clark restored $15 million of the $36 million that was cut from the fund, and appointed former Kwantlen Uni-

versity president Skip Triplett to hold hearings around the province. Clark and Community, Sport and Cultural Development Minister Ida Chong released Triplett’s report Wednesday, and promised to keep working on a way to provide multiyear funding for community groups instead of making them apply every year for grants. Clark said the financial pressure on the B.C. government made it difficult to maintain the grant budget at $135 million, and did not allow restoring it to its 2008 peak of $156 million. The province will also increase support for other organizations that have experienced funding cuts in the past

three years, including fairs, festivals, youth arts and community service, as well as the B.C. Summer Games, she said. The announcement reverses decisions made by former minister Rich Coleman in March 2010 to focus grants on organizations helping youth and disabled people. Coleman said the grants were a patchwork that supported some adult groups while others activities received no support, and that it made little sense that the B.C. government was providing $100,000 a year to support a parrot refuge on Vancouver Island while programs for needy children were stretched for funds.

NDP critic Shane Simpson said Wednesday that Triplett’s effort to hear from community groups was sincere, but Clark has essentially ignored it. “(Clark) has expanded the eligibility, but not increased the size of the pot, so there will essentially be more groups looking for a smaller pot of money,” Simpson said. The B.C. government now takes in about $1 billion a year from casinos and other gaming. Triplett’s report said the grant program was established in 1998, to replace revenue charitable groups raised by running their own casinos and bingo games.

Bakery installs cameras SUPERMARKET Owners of a White Rock bakery and deli hope word that they are installing surveillance equipment will deter whoever broke into their business over the holidays from repeating the gesture. Sheana Moyer said Hillcrest Bakery and Deli, at 1403 Johnston Rd., was targeted sometime between closing Dec. 31 and reopening Jan. 2. The culprit or culprits responsible made off with about $5,000 worth of goods, including meat

and cheese, a scale and a meat slicer, Moyer said. They also left fridge doors ajar. It’s believed two garbage cans that were also taken were used to transport the cache. Moyer said the incident is curious in that access was gained without any damage being done. At the same time, she is confident the doors were locked when she left Dec. 31. “I will swear on my life on that one,� she said. Const. Janelle Shoihet confirmed

police did investigate. Moyer, who took over the business with her husband last May, said it is not the first time that things have gone missing. The couple did not report the first incident, which occurred about three weeks ago, because they thought perhaps they’d inadvertently left a door unlocked. Anyone with information on the latest break-in may contact White Rock RCMP at 778-593-3600. - Tracy Holmes

Woods ‘greatly injured’ by comment  from page 1 repeated the remarks in “various online postings, conversations or emails to other persons...� According to Woods’ lawsuit, the use of the word and the other comments in the posting were defamatory because they implied that Woods was “a foolish or worthless person ... always negative in her approach to issues ... not of good character (and) is a buffoon and otherwise ought to be ridiculed...� The lawsuit goes on to say that “by reason of the publication and widespread distribution of the defamatory posting and the defamatory statements (Woods) has been greatly injured in her reputation and has been brought into public scandal, odium and contempt.� Woods’ lawyer is applying for an

Cliff Annable

Margaret Woods

order forbidding Annable from repeating those remarks and a yet-to-be-determined amount of money in general, aggravated, punitive and special damages. The claim, as filed in the Vancouver court registry, contains statements that have not been proven in court. Annable, a former councillor, sought a return to office in the Nov. 19 civic election, but lost.

Monday (Jan. 16) Annable said he was limited in what he could say because the matter is before the court, but that he would be filing a statement of defence. The issue of politicians making comments under pseudonyms also surfaced during the 2008 White Rock civic election. Veteran councillor James Coleridge was forced to vacate the seat he won in that election less than a year later, after a B.C. Supreme Court judge found he had lied to taxpayers when he said he did not know the source of a pre-election email terming opponents a “real estate slate.� Coleridge – first elected in 1983 – didn’t come clean about where the email came from or who wrote it – even after being confronted with evidence that linked it to his computer – until the court case.

Two White Rock councillors call for stricter penalties

Dog fines are â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;too lowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Suggestions for a new animalcontrol bylaw in White Rock, along with proposed amendments to a bylaw outlining fines for animal-control and building violations, were put on hold last week. In discussing a motion to defer, Couns. Al Campbell and Larry Robinson both expressed concern that proposed fines for dog-related offences were too low. Paul Stanton, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director of planning and development services, had recommended council endorse changes that Al Campbell bring the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 23-year-old animal-control bylaw up to date. T h o s e c h a n g e s include the addition of provincial legLarry Robinson islation specific to dangerous councillors and nuisance dogs; better definition of where dogs are allowed; higher fees and fines for nuisance dogs; and new requirements for exotic pets. Including the Community Charter legislation would benefit the city in dealing with nuisance and aggressive dogs, Stanton said. It â&#x20AC;&#x153;takes responsibility out of the hands of the city,â&#x20AC;? he said. Stanton noted the legislation was used successfully in the recent case against a pit bull that killed a small dog in White Rock in

Dog park sought As White Rock officials continue to mull its dog rules, a woman new to the community is doing what she can to pressure the city to create a dog park. Eva Hompot held a walk Saturday, inviting supporters and fourlegged friends to hike from city hall to the 14400-block of Marine Drive and back. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are so many limitations and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just not right,â&#x20AC;? she said of city restrictions. The city has no official dog park. Hompot, who moved to White Rock from Montreal with her shepherd-wolf cross two months ago, said the lack of facilities is not fair to dog owners - Tracy Holmes

With it, the city was able to win a euthanization order in Surrey Provincial Court last month. If the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own bylaw had been followed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we couldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been taken to court,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This (new) bylaw is intended to deal with these issues.â&#x20AC;? Proposed fees include higher rates to license nuisance ($100) and aggressive dogs ($200) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; compared to $25 or $40 for dogs simply categorized as altered or unaltered. In supporting deferral, Campbell cited city cost of cleaning up dog excrement as one example where proposed fines arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appropriate. Describing some piles of dog feces he comes across along Marine Drive as â&#x20AC;&#x153;big enough to twist your ankle,â&#x20AC;? Campbell said the proposed $75 fine to the offending dog owner would barely cover cleanup costs. Robinson said fines shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be anything less than $100. He

added the city needs to get a firm handle on its penalty structure and enforcement of dog rules before any discussion regarding improved access can be considered. A motion to defer the two issues carried unanimously. Council gave first, second and third reading to a new building bylaw. That legislation is anticipated to improve the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s risk management with respect to construction. It includes new requirements for permits and design of retaining walls more than 1.2 metres in height and a change to how building permit fees are calculated, to ensure they are based on market value of the construction.

Tread carefully on snowy roads

T

he snow arrived on the weekend, and with it, a predictable blizzard of smug comments about the panic that strikes residents of Canada’s Pacific coast whenever the white stuff lands. However it is phrased, the message is the same. What’s the deal with those west coasters who get so worked up about a few little flakes? Much of the snark, it needs to be said, is coming from people who don’t fully understand the uniquely treacherous nature of Lower Mainland snow. It is wet, squishy stuff that is very different from the frozen, powdery precipitation that the rest of the country is crunching through or skiing down at this time of year. Metro Vancouver snow, especially near the ocean, tends to come down moist, quickly freezing into ice. And then, just to make it really interesting, more snow will usually land on top of the ice, a nasty combination of a slippery surface and a damp topping that packs nicely into tire treads to reduce traction. All of this, by the way, spread over hills, some of the steep variety. Our snow bears little resemblance to the sedate, crisp flakes found in drier, flatter climes. On the plus side, it makes for splendid snowmen, because it packs nicely. For the same reason, it also produces potentially injury-inducing snowballs heavy with ice. But as a driving surface? Not so much. It is a challenge, one that local motorists don’t face all that often. Some get anxious while others, it seems, simply pretend nothing has changed. The first sort are the drivers who overcompensate by creeping along at a snail’s pace, terrified they might wipe out on the slippery streets. Interestingly, they often seem to be at the wheel of a four-wheel-drive with snow tires. In fairness, they may be so nervous because they’ve had an encounter with the other type of driver. Those would be the people who operate in a state of apparent denial, barreling along as though the laws of physics don’t apply to them, making sudden stops and turns as if they were maneuvering on dry pavement. Perhaps they need to be in denial, because they often appear to be skating along on worn or inappropriate tires. Maybe ICBC needs to consider a special “S” sticker for such motorists. And maybe the rest of the world could do us a favor by acknowledging the unique nature of our snow and cut us a little slack.

So far this week you’ve said… yes 63% no 37% 98 responding years. Port Moody’s Ioco refinery is gone, but Chevron’s Burnaby plant remains, and some crude goes out by tanker or pipeline to refineries south of B.C. The current owner of Trans Mountain, Kinder Morgan Canada, is naturally watching the Enbridge battle closely. A Kinder Morgan representative provided the following information about tanker traffic from their Westridge Marine Terminal in Burnaby. In 2011 there were 32 tankers loaded at Westridge, down from 69 in 2010. Demand varies widely (there were no tankers in 2000) and current traffic is similar to what went out of Burrard Inlet in the 1970s. Contrary to popular belief, there is not yet a major surge to Asia. For every 10 ships that load at Westridge, on average eight sail to California, one to U.S. Gulf Coast refineries, and only one to Asia. Current Port Metro Vancouver rules allow Aframax-class tankers (80,000 to 119,000 dead weight tons) to pass under the Lions Gate and Second Narrows bridges, but they can’t take on a full load. That would require dredging in Second Narrows, which would increase general shipping safety as well as capacity. Kinder Morgan has not yet formally applied to twin the Trans Mountain line. If it does expand its priceless right-ofway, the capacity would be greater than the Enbridge proposal. One way or another, that oil will move. The professional environmentalist gong show over Enbridge is still to come. More on that next week.

It’s a battle that must be won Editor: As a concerned citizen not backed by “foreign intervention”, I was insulted and angered by the words of Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver, who, along with the Harper government, is condemning people who are not in favour of the Northern Gateways pipeline project. Billions of gallons of bitumen pumped to Kitimat from the Alberta oil sands, then loaded onto tankers to traverse the stormy waters to Asia and southward, is a disaster ready to happen. Sooner or later, the super, natural shores of our province will have to face the horrible situations previously experienced in the Gulf of Mexico, Valdez, Alaska, the Brittany coast, etc. Yes, jobs will be created and certain communities will benefit. But, in the long run, the risks are simply too high. Those of you who fear for our future environment because of this project must make your voices heard through government officials, the media, and interaction with others. It will be a tough fight to defeat the rich oil interests, but it’s a battle that must be won. L.C. Phillips, Surrey

I only feel pity because, like a bully picks on the weak, you have sunk to an alltime low to take from a cemetery.

Words for a humanitarian Editor: I decided to write this poem in memory of Fulvia Fadigas da Souza, who was a great humanitarian, writer and artist. As well, she won Immigrant of the Year in 2009. Most of all, she was loved by all and fund raised for the less fortunate throughout her life. I loved her very much! She passed away Dec. 11. Where Have All The Trees Gone? Good bye so sad that we destroy our South Surrey heritage trees Now there are less reminders left to empower nature, land and seas;

We are a community driven by development and city planners and what it brings Who do not see a continuity to preserve heritage for any of God’s living things; It is a destructive mentality which David Suzuki would not embrace I am sad and embarrassed by such a disgrace; December was a time where people known lost battles of life at a cost Simultaneously hundreds more trees were destroyed in which wildlife were abandoned and lost; These thousands of trees cannot be replaced but perhaps we can make a difference at no further cost In 2012, it is now time to stop the devastation of nature and the accost!

Centres grow from history Editor: Whenever one reads Peace Arch News, it appears the main matters White Rock council deals with is parking, dogs and OCP. With the low amount of viable income – residential property taxes being the main source – there is little left to talk about.

So the need is, change the OCP again, an annual affair, the sky is the limit. It is quoted, to be economically safe for a city, the ratio should be 60 per cent residential and 40 per cent commercial (“Billion-dollar year for building in Surrey,” Jan. 10). With no space in the City of White Rock, it is impossible. The summer-cabin-1957 city is no more. It is a part of a large population growth for which it is missing the facilities to accommodate in services for the only resort, the beaches. The vision to have a city centre in between four skyscrapers is a bad joke. City centres develop by appearance and public appeal, which highrises do not provide. Neither does Johnston Road attract. City centres grow from history. That is why thousands in the Lower Mainland go to Granville and Robson in Vancouver. White Rock’s history is long gone. In October, I wrote Ida Chong, minister responsible for municipalities, noting the City of White Rock is on its death bed economically. She wrote back, saying the province will not interfere in the future of White Rock – they leave it up to the city and its neighbours. The time is now to ask the residents. Suan H.

You can’t take our memories An open letter to the person or persons who took my wreaths. Shame on you. The pain of losing a loved one is something each of us experience at some point in our lives. The acceptance of a loss is sometimes out of reach, but in time we learn to cope. I lost my husband – he was 36 years young – and our beloved daughter, who was 26, in two different horrific car accidents, and both are buried at Victory Memorial on King George Boulevard. The first time a person or persons took both wreaths that I had made up with thoughtful, loving care – always trying to capture the deep love we shared as a family – it brought up the pain of losing, so real again. I chose to let it go, as in some strange way I could hear our beloved daughter – who was a florist and who always looked for the good in people – say, “It’s OK, Mom, they are only wreaths.” They can take away the material things of life but never the cherished memories we created or the love we shared. The accident that robbed me of the greatest gift I will ever receive, my daughter, happened a number of years ago, a few days after spending Christmas with my only sister, whom I lost in the same accident. I would like to think you took the wreaths again because they were lovely and, you could tell, made from love. My daughter’s was done in bronze musical notes, matching

The Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre was built to take pressure off Surrey Memorial Hospital.

Things to ponder while waiting Editor: There seem to be lots of people complaining about our hospitals these days. I am sure there are some problems, but in the last month I have spent time in Peace Arch, St. Paul’s and Vancouver General. Sure, I had to wait for some of the tests I required, but in no circumstance was I ever mistreated. The nurses and doctors were helpful and answered any questions I had. After all, why do we go to the hospital? Most of us go because we are sick. Too many of us want things instantly. Take a minute and look around. Do you honestly think you are the only patient these people have to look after? I have seen more than one person walk out of the emergency ward because they could not wait. Why were they there in the first place? We do have walk-in clinics.

I, for one, would like to take the time to thank all the people I came in contact with at these hospitals – clerks, nurses and doctors. They are overworked and not appreciated. George West, Surrey Q Wherever I go, people are complaining that they have been waiting months for their medical test. Waiting for one’s test is very stressful because you cannot deal with the unknown. When I visited the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre on a recent Saturday, it seemed half the building was not in use. The place was so empty you could have shot a cannon through the building. Maybe the genius who invented user fees could figure out how to provide the taxpayer with first-class service, since we are paying five-star taxes and user fees. Mary Mikelson, Surrey

Senior leaves $60,000 to activity centre Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

The wish of a White Rock senior to see kitchen facilities at the Kent Street Activity Centre improved is a step closer to reality, with receipt of a generous bequest from his estate. Acting city manager Sandra Kurylo told council last week that a $59,074.40 cheque from the assets of Stanley Katsumi Sugita arrived Jan. 3 – nearly three years after the city first received word it was a

beneficiary. “The money has been received,” Kurylo announced. Sugita, who died in November 2008, was an artist and member of the activity centre. A staff report notes he provided paintings for a silent auction to raise funds for the centre’s passenger bus, and was particularly interested in cooking. He was also a regular contributor to Peninsula Arts Foundation’s annual wine-tasting fundraiser.

Sugita’s will specifies the bequest fundraising arm will have input into be used “solely for the benefit and how the money is spent.

new dishwasher, freezer and expansion of the kitchen facility has been underway for two years. Sugita’s bequest would boost the total collected to about $130,000, she said. “He, for about 3½ years, just took every class I offered,” Faulkner said. “He would love… to think that (his gift) went to something concrete.” Until a decision is made – city officials were to meet with Kent Street members Friday – the funds have been placed in a reserve account.

White Rock mulls ‘getting with the times’

City considers social media

White Rock would be wise to jump aboard the social-media train, city politicians have been told. Communications co-ordinator Jamie Leggatt told the city’s governance and legislation committee last week the use of such online tools as Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin would enable the city to “expand its communication reach” with residents, visitors, business owners and other stakeholders. Wayne Baldwin She noted many municipalities are already using social media, and that anything White Rock posted would link back to the city’s website, Louise Hutchinson which was revamped last year. It’s an opportunity to interact with residents online and draw them back to the website, she said. In November, the new site drew

Mayor Wayne Baldwin said while he uses but doesn’t yet like social media, he believes the city could benefit from it, particularly in efforts to engage the younger generation in municipal government. “Perhaps we should get with the times,” he said. “I don’t think we can neglect it – it’s too well-used.” Coun. Larry Robinson described it as “a very immediate type of communication.” Citing the August 2010 boil-water advisory, he said an avenue like Twitter would be useful in quickly advising people of major events. One committee member expressed concern the city wasn’t ready to implement social media. “Personally, I think it’s a little

Louise Hutchinson. “It just seems we’re putting the cart before the horse here.” Hutchinson said she would prefer to see the city’s new webpage fully up and running first – a point Leggatt assured is the case. Asked if the city is ready for social media, acting city manager Sandra Kurylo said “there’s no question this is the way of the world.” She noted adoption of a socialmedia policy would likely necessitate increasing Leggatt’s hours of employment, an issue that would have to be included in the next city budget. Suggestions to defer the policy until the potential budget impact is clarified and until after an upcoming goal-setting session were supported unanimously.

Diehard Surrey Sailing Club members including fleet captain Doug Honey (blue) and club commodore Darren Redies (red) braved the cold for a quick sail Sunday by Crescent Beach.

ing, Redies admits he may never know everything about the sport – something he says makes it that much more fun. “Because there is a lot of technical skill associated with it, you can never completely master it,” Redies said. “You’ll continually be learning.” Another benefit of sailing is how eco-friendly it is, he adds. “It is a very green sport, the carbon footprint is almost nil,” he said. “You’re out on the water without the sound of an engine and the smell that comes from it – you get to smell and hear the ocean.” The time spent on the water helps many sailors – Redies included – to disconnect from the hectic day-to-day. “My wife tells me to go when she sees I’m getting antsy,” he said. “It can really change our outlook.” The Frost Bite Series will continue next Sunday, Jan. 22, weather permitting.

lifestyles Hair-dressing school students make hairpieces for cancer patients

SUSTAINING PARTNER

Patients’ wig wishes come true Sheila Reynolds Black Press

Nicole Dubois can’t help but smile as she watches her students wash and style wigs in the school salon. And when they’re done and sitting atop mannequin heads on the top left shelf, she’s even more pleased because she knows she can soon take them to Surrey Memorial Hospital (SMH). It all makes her think of her Aunt Vicky. Dubois, an assistant instructor at the Surrey School District’s hairdressing school, helped start a program last September where students clean, maintain, set and style all the hairpieces that are donated to the wig program at the B.C. Cancer Agency’s centre in Surrey. The idea was actually that of her aunt, Victoria Nichols Simle, who passed away last March after battling throat cancer. Like many patients undergoing chemotherapy treatments, Simle lost all of her hair. One day, she noticed a bag of tangled wigs at SMH. “She said ‘wouldn’t it be great if, where you’re working, you and the students could do the maintenance?’” recalled

wigs. It’s specialty training most hairdressing schools do not offer, leaving the Surrey students with something extra on their resumés. The initiative is close to the students’ hearts as well, Dubois notes, as cancer has touched almost everyone’s lives. Grade 12 student Lucia Beltrame’s grandfather passed away just last week after a lengthy fight with cancer. She lost another grandparent to cancer last year. “I totally support the cause because a lot of my family has been through cancer,” Beltrame says. Looking at a photo of Simle hanging near the entrance of the school salon, Dubois is simply happy she was able to help make her aunt’s suggestion a reality. “It’s sort of carrying on her legacy,” Dubois said of Simle, who was a longtime employee with the City of Surrey. “She’s very missed.” The hairdressing school is in need of wigs. Donations can be dropped off at the school at #700-9260 140 St. For further information, call 604-5839554. The school also offers a service for wig wearers to come in for one free setting.

Community Based Lawyering After over 25 years working in the family justice system, 8 years as a family justice counsellor and the past 18 years practicing family law, I bring a broad range of experience and expertise to my clients. I have recently established what I would like to call a more community based family law practice here in the White Rock area. With its’ changing and growing demographics, the White Rock area has a corresponding need for quality goods and services, locally. People don’t want to have to drive ‘downtown’. People want good family counsel in whom they will have conÀ dence. They want to deal personally with their own lawyer. They want to be heard, to get ‘straight’ advice and timely, effective service at a reasonable cost. And, it helps if it is close by. From simple divorces to principled negotiations and agreements, from Supreme Court Chambers and Trial work, to the Court of Appeal, I provide a complete package of legal experience and expertise, as may be required by the needs of my clients. The importance of obtaining independent legal advice upon marital breakdown cannot be over-emphasized. A negotiated agreement is always the optimal objective. Sometimes, however, emotional or other dynamics may intervene and the timely protection or the advancement of one’s rights may be necessary. Delay can be prejudicial. So, it is important to À nd out where you stand and your options. If you live or work here, I am easily accessible.

ne is a teacher, while the other is a male model. But while their backgrounds may be different, they share a key trait: a love of working out and fitness. And now, Nate Beveridge and Robert Perovich have joined together to open a fitness training facility in Langley. Beveridge, who grew up in White Rock before moving to Vancouver Island, found his love for fitness while at UBC. A wide receiver with the Thunderbirds and a kinesiology student, he worked on the side as a personal trainer. Beveridge won the Bobby Gaul Award in 2005 — presented to the top male UBC athlete — and signed a free agent deal with the B.C. Lions. But after failing to stick with the CFL club, he chose to focus on his work as a personal trainer. “I always grew up thinking I wanted to teach kids,” Beveridge explained. “I had a personal desire to make a difference in people’s lives and I found my training provided that opportunity for me. “It allowed me to (train) kids, like I would in school, and with adults and athletes and everyday people,

Robert Perovich (left) and Nate Beveridge have teamed up to open Langley’s Hybrid Athletics Inc. really affecting their lives in a positive way. “It fulfilled that desire that I have.” While working as a director of strength and conditioning at the gym at the North Shore Winter

Club, he met Perovich, whose son was playing hockey at the club. Perovich had an athletic background himself — track and field and hockey, particularly — but also did some modeling work. “I was getting ready to do a cam-

paign for a perfume and for me, (Nate) fit the bill for what I was looking for.” Perovich needed to trim some weight and put on some muscle for the job, which was both a print and TV ad.

Enjoying their working relationship, they soon became training partners and Perovich wound up working towards getting his certification to train others. Working for the same gym, they decided to branch out and open their own fitness centre, Hybrid Athletics. “His knowledge and desire and passion matched mine,” Beveridge said. They took over their current building — which used to be the home of the Langley Gymnastics Foundation — and began renovations last February. The gym space is 5,000 square feet with state-of-the-art equipment, a 30-yard field turf strip, Olympic lifting platforms, bars and plates, Strongman training equipment and more. Hybrid Athletics offers services to all ages and levels, including for those rehabilitating from an injury, high-level athletes and groups or teams. In addition to Beveridge and Perovich, White Rock resident Christine Girard, one of Canada’s top female weightlifters, runs classes at the gym, and they have Michelle Fiddler, a coach and nutritional consultant.

I am often asked if I think it is a good idea for elderly parents, especially those who are now single, to put the bulk of their assets into joint names with 1 or more of their children in order to avoid probate and the approximately 1.4% fee on the value of the parent’s estate at the time of death. The answer is not simply “yes” or “no” because while it is almost always better to pay less fees or tax, placing assets into joint names with one or more of a person’s children can have unexpected costs and can

adopted by Metro’s board in September and took effect Jan. 1 in all 33 regional parks and greenways but enforcement won’t begin until February. Violators can be fined $75. Smoking is allowed only in signed, designated smoking areas – often near parking lots. Metro aims to protect park users from second-hand smoke, reduce litter from discarded butts and reduce the risk of fire.

Payroll taxes higher The first paycheques of 2012 may look lighter to many employees, thanks to rising payroll taxes imposed by Ottawa and Victoria.

A family with children will now pay $128 in monthly premiums to the Medical Services Plan (MSP), an increase of $7 a month or $84 a year. Employment Insurance (EI) and Canada Pension Plan (CPP) premiums are also going up by $306, with the employee covering $142 of that. MSP premiums are up 18.5 per cent in two years and the jump in EI/CPP premiums is the second biggest since 1994. Many families can also expect to pay more because of rate increases from BC Hydro and ICBC. BC Ferries increased its fuel surcharge last month and a two-cent gas-tax hike for TransLink takes effect in April.

Joint ownership to avoid probate not for everyone create more problems for the parent than the relatively small savings realized in avoiding probate fees. For example, placing an adult child(ren) on a parent’s bank or investment account could result in the child accessing the funds for his/her own purposes, or could expose the account to attachment by a creditor of the child. Similarly, a parent’s home held jointly with a child can expose the child’s interest to a charge by a creditor of that child, possibly even by a separating or divorcing spouse of the child. Another potential problem with jointly held real estate is that the fractional interest registered in the child’s name may lose the capital gains exempt status for income tax purposes because that part is not the child’s principal residence. Over a long period or in a

rapidly rising real estate market the loss of the exempt status could result in income tax far in excess of the 1.4% probate fees. Some of the other issues which might arise from joint ownership include: - loss of control over your property - reduced value of estate so as to defeat specific bequests - reduction of Executor’s fees based on a percentage of the deceased’s estate (wouldn’t include assets held jointly). Accordingly, joint ownership to avoid probate isn’t for everyone. I strongly recommend that you discuss with your lawyer the pros and cons of placing any of your assets into joint tenancy with someone other than your spouse.

Quick action foils a ‘foolish’ act of mischief Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Contributed photo

Debris was found on train tracks by Marine Drive.

Dangerous, crazy and stupid are words being used this week to describe the actions of whoever piled driftwood and rocks across trains tracks south of the 13000-block of Marine Drive Monday. “Any train coming… wouldn’t have been able to see it in time,” said Isabel Bliss, an Ocean Park resident who came across the debris around 4:30 p.m. Jan. 9. “What a crazy thing to do. It just doesn’t make any sense why anyone would be so foolish.” Bliss said she and a man who was also walking in the area moved quickly to clear the tracks – the pile had been arranged

to enable one log to be stood on-end in the centre, and included a large boulder – then watched as a freight train rumbled through about two minutes later. Bliss then reported the incident to railway officials. BNSF Railway spokesman Gus Melonas said Tuesday that the pile likely would not have caused much damage to the train. The bigger danger, he said, comes in the velocity and distance at which the debris would have been thrown aside by the locomotive. “There’s people along the right-of-way and debris can certainly fly for great distances at high speeds, and it’s dangerous,” he said.

Dismal attendance for public meeting

City mulls over triplex policy A meeting to gather public feedback on a triplex policy for White Rock was “not really well-attended,” Mayor Wayne Baldwin said last week. The city is creating a policy to outline development requirements for the structures. The move to amend the city’s Official Community Plan comes nine months after an application to build a triplex at 14968 Beachview Ave. was sunk by a split council vote that defeated a suggestion to amend zoning to create an RT-2 Three Unit Family Residential Zone.

That amendment would have applied only to the one lot. At the time, then-mayor Catherine Ferguson said she believed allowing the amendment would be “precedent-setting.” Then-councillor Lynne Sinclair, however, said she believed the decision could hurt the city in terms of attracting development. The Jan. 4 meeting, held at city hall, was to include a display outlining details of the proposed amendments. Two members of the public

attended. In commenting on the meeting during his mayor’s report to council last week, Baldwin noted the zoning would not affect many properties in the city. A city staff report recommending council give first, second and third reading to the OCP amendments was to be considered at Monday’s land use and planning committee meeting, after Peace Arch News’ press time. For more information, call 604-541-2155 or email planning@whiterockcity.ca

“We won’t tolerate it. We’re going to inspect around the clock to ensure everybody’s safety and protection.” Melonas said such trespassing incidents that include an element of mischief are not common along tracks in the South Surrey/ White Rock area. The track system was not damaged by Monday’s debris, and no further piles were located. Train crews were advised to operate prepared to stop short for obstacles, Melonas said. He added the immediate notification of the debris was appreciated. Anyone with information on the person or persons responsible may contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.

the scene …on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Semiahmoo Strings Tickets are still available for the next concert by acclaimed youth ensemble The Semiahmoo Strings, A Little Night Music, Friday, Jan. 20, 7:30 p.m. at Mount Olive Lutheran Church, 2530 148 St. The program will include a little something for everybody, including Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, SaintSaens Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso (featuring violin soloist Lucy Wang), the Intercontinental Fiddle Suite (with fiddler/violinist Kierah Raymond), plus virtuoso works by Holst, Liszt and Bernstein. Tickets ($15, $8 students and seniors) are available from Tapestry Music, or by calling 604538-1460.

Don Quixote Axis Theatre Company – creators of the hit The Number 14 – collaborated with the Arts Club Theatre on a new version of the classic tale Don Quixote, which opens tonight (Jan. 17) at Surrey Arts Centre’s mainstage, running through Jan. 28. As fans of the earlier show can imagine, masks play an important role in the new production, co-adapted by Colin Heath and lead performer Peter Anderson. Based on the the two-volume 17th century classic by Miguel de Cervantes – celebrated as a high point of the Spanish Golden Age, and as a cornerstone of modern Western literature – Don Quixote uses masks not only to evoke a multitude of characters, but also explore themes of identity. Most of all, the masks – created by Melody Anderson – make possible to recreate with a small troupe the comical and philospohical world of the elderly country gentleman, who has become so obsessed with accounts of knighthood and chivalry that he sets out on his own quest to defend the helpless and destroy the wicked. David Roberts’ literary-inspired set takes theatregoers on the journey from Quixote’s candlelit study to a field of windmills and the castle of a duke. Also along for the trip are Michel Perron, as the Don’s faithful and naive squire Sancho Panza, plus a company of recognized Vancouver talents including Sasa Brown, Marco Soriano, Raphael Kepinski, Beatrice Zeilinger and Allan Zinyk. For reservations, and more information on the Surrey run, call 604-501-5566.

Art journaling A free art journaling workshop for teens and tweens is offered by White Rock Library, Jan. 18 and 25, 4-5 p.m. Aimed at young people who like to express themselves through drawing, colouring, and journaling, the class, taught by local artist and teacher Violette, will cover such techniques as

collage, lettering and using markers and pencils to create rich, layered visual journals. Students will come away from the class with one or two pages of journaling, plus handouts to refer back to in future work. To register, call 604-542-2204.

Twenties mystery Crescent Beach’s Beecher Street Cafe is presenting another in the popular series of murder mystery evenings by Grim Reaper: Who Stiffed Sammy? (Thursday, June 26, 7 p.m. at the cafe). Producer Trevor Jenkins is offering to take everybody “back to the Roaring ‘20s for a rollicking gangster-and-gun moll-era period show” which blends participatory mystery game, live theatre, fine dining and prizes. Beecher Street Cafe will become a speakeasy for the evening (‘Big Al’ is the password to get in) as participants help unravel the mystery of who pumped gangland chieftan Sammy Nitti full of lead that morning. Flappers and gunmen will populate the venue – diners are invited to join in by donning ‘20s-style costume – while suspects abound, including Sweet Nelly Kelly; Texas (the Queen of the Nightclubs); Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. Cost per person is $55 (including meal, but not including HST and gratuity). For

reservations, call 604-538-1964.

Library reading White Rock-based social justice activist Pummy Kaur – author of the best-selling What Would Gandhi Do? – will read from her latest book, A Season of Non-Violence: 64 Ways for 64 Days, Monday, Jan. 30 at 7 p.m. at White Rock Library, 15342 Buena Vista Pummy Kaur Ave. author Kaur, who asserts that global peace begins with the individual, outlines 64 suggestions for peace-promoting activities; one for each of the 64 days between the anniversaries of the assassinations of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King. To pre-register (recommended), call 604-541-2201.

Players Club Now is the time for local live theatre fans to indulge their passion by buying tickets for a busy line-up of shows in the current White Rock Players Club season at Coast Capital Playhouse (1532 Johnston Rd.) First up this year is Norm Foster’s Drinking Alone, directed by Susanne de Pencier, at Feb. 8

to Feb 12. 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, with new wife in tow, after 15 years of virtually no contact. The daughter, an apparently successful TV news reader, is teetering on the edge of being an alcoholic, just like the mother to whose not-so-tender mercies their father abandoned them. The son, Joe (played in this production by Terry Thomas) is a self-confessed failure who runs the family’s moribund drycleaning business. In a vain attempt to convince his father he’s not a complete loser, he hires Renee (Vanessa Klein), a woman from an escort service, 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 a 2:30 p.m. matinee Saturday, Feb. 25. From April 11 to 28 the club will present its Theatre B.C. entry, the medieval drama of royal intrigue The Lion In Winter, by James Goldman. The 1966 play imagines a

Christmas in the year 1183 at Henry II of England’s French chateau at Chinon in the Anjou region, and the verbal and psychological battles between the king, his wife Eleanor of Aquitaine (imprisoned by him for supportring a rebellion against his rule) and their sons Richard, Geoffrey and John. Also at court: Philip II of France and his half-sister Alais – who is, in Goldman’s version, at least, Henry’s mistress. From April 29 to May 5, the club will host the Theatre B.C. zone festival, in which its entry will be judged alongside other notable productions from community theatre groups in the Vancouver zone. From June 13 to 30, the scheduled show will be Ken Ludwig’s farce Lend Me A Tenor. Set in Cleveland in 1934, the show depicts the mayhem when famed tenor Tito Merelli, known as ‘Il Stupendo,’ receives an accidental double-dose of tranquilizers, and Saunders, the opera company manager has to find a substitute. Adding to the fun: an autograph seeker mistaken for Merelli’s mistress, Merelli’s enraged wife, and Saunders’ ambitious assistant Max.

The roster for B.C.’s Elite Youth Sevens rugby squad – which travels to Las Vegas next month – was announced Wednesday, and the list is chock-full of Surrey and White Rock talent. In total, 37 under-18 players from across the province were named to the roster, which will be split into three teams, all of which will compete at the Las Vegas Invitationals Seven tournament Feb. 9-11. Among the chosen 37 are Bobby Devaney (Bayside Sharks/Earl Marriott Secondary), Robert Jones (Bayside/Lord Tweedsmuir), Joey Kenville (Bayside/Earl Marriott), Alex Klassen (Bayside/Semiahmoo), Ian McMas-

ter (Bayside/Earl Marriott), Quinton Willms (Bayside/Earl Marriott) and Luke Zandbergen (Surrey Beavers/Lord Tweedsmuir). Many among the Surrey and White Rock contingent are no stranger to the Vegas Sevens event; Willms, McMaster, Kenville, Devaney and Jones were all members of Team BC at last year’s event. “It’s going to be sweet – I’m really stoked about it,” Devaney said. “The first time, we didn’t quite know what to expect, but now we do, and we’re going there to win. If we don’t win, we’ll be pretty upset.” “I think we have a pretty good chance,” added McMaster. In Vegas, Team BC will be up against some

fairly stiff American competition, with many teams holding a distinct size advantage. To have success, Devaney said, his side will have to play to its strengths – namely speed and skill. “We’re not the biggest team, but we have a lot of skill, and a great coach in Shane Thompson, who has really taught us how to play defence,” he said. Like in 2011, the Las Vegas Invitational runs concurrently with the USA Sevens event, which features some of the top sevens teams from across the world. Canada’s roster for the USA Sevens has yet to be announced, but last year featured Bayside Sharks and Earl Marriott alum Keaton Styles.

sports Road wins highlighted by 12-goal outburst in Victoria

Eagles earn five points on trip Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

While playing three games in less than 72 hours might tire out even the best of hockey teams, the Surrey Eagles showed few signs of fatigue on last weekend’s road trip, taking five of a possible six points. And as if that wasn’t impressive enough, the Eagles exploded for 12 goals in one win, and capped the trip with a shutout victory over the first-place Cowichan Valley Capitals. Friday, the Eagles opened the trip with a 3-2 overtime loss to the Powell River Kings – picking up a single point in the bargain – and Saturday, they crushed the hapless Victoria Grizzlies, which traded many of its top players at last week’s trade deadline, by a 12-3 margin. Then Sunday, playing an afternoon tilt less than 18 hours after their Victoria win, Surrey edged the Capitals 3-0. Last Wednesday, the Birds defeated the Nanaimo Clippers 5-1, led by a two-goal effort from Michael Stenerson. “This time of year, taking five of six (points) – and seven of eight for the week – is huge for us,” said Eagles coach Matt Erhart. Surrey sits in third in the BC Hockey League’s Coastal Conference, one point back of Powell River and just three from the Capitals. Despite losing to Powell River, Erhart – who called it a “playoff-like atmosphere” – said it was a good rebound game, considering the last time Surrey played at Hap Parker Arena, they lost 7-1. “That one really got us pumped up heading into Victoria the next night,” he said. It didn’t take long for the Eagles to hit the scoreboard against the Grizzlies, with two

They tacked on five in the second and three in the third to complete the rout. Demico Hannoun had a hat trick, as did Brayden Jaw, who also added two assists. Alex Hagen had a goal and three helpers, Robert Lindores had one goal and two assists, and seven others finished with two points. “We just played our game and scored some goals,” Erhart said of the win. “It was a nice confidence boost for the sticks.” Conor Barrie backstopped the Eagles in the win, facing just 18 shots on net. The next day in Cowichan, the Eagles’ snipers got on the board even quicker than the evening before – and quicker, perhaps, than

any other game in team history. Off the opening face-off, Cowichan won the draw back to a defenceman, who was quickly stripped of the puck by Hagen, who moved up ice and slid the puck over to Lindores for a goal at the eight-second mark of the game. “It may be an Eagles’ record, we’re not sure. We’re trying to find out,” Erhart said. “It was a nice quick start.” Three minutes later, Brett Mulcahy scored to make it 2-0, and Linden Saip added the team’s third goal just two minutes after that. For the remaining 55 minutes, the Eagles held on for the win – a cause that was helped netminder Andrew Hunt, who picked up his second shutout of the year.

The Cougars led 24-11 after one quarter and never looked back. Khular with 21 points, Justin Bhangoo with 16 and Rai with 15 were the top scorers for the Cougars. “We spent a lot of energy in the semifinals,” Southridge coach Steve Anderson said, of his team’s four-point loss to Tamanawis Friday. “But we showed that when we play a certain way, and with some intensity, we can play with anyone in the province. We battled hard.” Severide with 20 and Jonathan Yu with 12 paced the Storm.

sports Winter Games slated for Vernon next month

Athletes set to star at Games Kerry Vital Black Press

With the 2012 BC Winter Games set to start in Vernon in February, spirit is building in every community across British Columbia. The brainchild of Premier W.R. Bennett, the Games began in 1978 in Penticton. Since then, 38 communities across the province have hosted the Games, some of them more than once. More than 200,000 people have volunteered and over 150,000 athletes have competed since it began. “One of the most important benefits of hosting a BC Games is how it brings a community together,” says Henry Pejril, President of the 2006 BC Summer Games in Kamloops. “There aren’t many opportunities like a Games that can capture the full cross-section of a community. The feeling of pride and accomplishment lasts in a host city for many years to come.” Many well-known athletes had their start at the BC Games, including Tour de France cyclist Ryder Hesjedal and 2010 Olympic women’s snowboarding cross gold medallist Maelle Ricker, who are among the alumni who say their dreams of international competition began at the BC Games. “My Olympic success can be
