Criminology student ran from crash that killed Kassandra Kaulius

Guilty plea in impaired-driving death Kevin Diakiw Black Press

The woman charged in connection with a crash that killed Surrey’s Kassandra Kaulius in 2011 has pleaded guilty. Natasha Warren, a criminology student who now lives in Port Coquitlam, initially faced four charges related to the death of Kaulius. On Friday morning in Surrey Provincial Court,

Warren pleaded guilty to dangerous driving causing death, impaired driving causing death and failure to stop at an accident. Warren was intoxicated while she was driving northbound in a company van on 152 Street on May 3 last year when she slammed into a BMW being driven by 22-year-old Kaulius. Warren ran from the crash and was later found in a nearby green space.

Kaulius died at the scene. Warren’s defense lawyer Mark Cacchioni said his client wanted to plead guilty right away, but he advised her not to. “A lawyer would be negligent in the extreme for ever advising a client to plead guilty to any offence unless that lawyer would have had the opportunity to review the Crown’s case,” he said.  see page 4

Cocaine smuggling

Ex-border guard gets 15 years Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A former South Surrey border guard who helped smuggle an “enormous” amount of cocaine through the Pacific Highway border crossing has been sentenced to 15 years in jail for the crime. Baljinder Kandola, a Cloverdale resident, learned his fate Friday morning in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster. Justice Selwyn Romilly sentenced Kandola’s co-accused, Richmond resident Shminder Johal, to 18 years. In reasons for the sentence, Romilly wrote that he had “few mitigating factors to consider.” Describing Kandola as the “facilitator” of the operation and Johal as Dan Ferguson sketch the “overseer,” Romilly Baljinder Kandola cited Kandola’s breach of trust and the fact he accepted bribes from Johal as among aggravating factors in determining sentence. The pair’s only motivation appeared to be greed, he said. In a July 9 sentencing hearing, prosecutor James Torrance argued both men should get 20 years for the scheme. “This case is about the corruption of a CBSA (Canada Border Services Agency) officer and the importation of an enormous amount of cocaine,” Torrance said.  see page 2

news Eight counts include holdups at South Surrey juice bars and non-profit coffee shop

Three years for robberies at knifepoint Dan Ferguson Staff reporter

A 29-year-old Surrey man has been given three years in jail for a series of holdups at businesses in White Rock, South Surrey and Langley. Clayton James Norris was sentenced after he pleaded guilty during a July 10 Surrey Provincial Court appearance to eight counts of robbery. The counts included armed thefts from three Booster Juice stores in South Surrey and Langley, as well as the non-profit Small Ritual Coffee shop in White Rock. Security footage from the holdup at the Langley Booster Juice showed Norris – wearing a hoodie and a single glove – threatening a store cashier with a knife.

Security camera image

A June 11 robbery in Langley led to arrest. He was wearing sunglasses and a baseball hat with “Police” embroidered on the front. The incident was one of three robberies at the chain of juice bars:

On June 3, the Booster Juice outlet at 15161 Hwy. 10 in South Surrey was robbed at 7:30 p.m. by a man with a knife; on June 7, the outlet at 15355 24 Ave. was robbed around 2:30 p.m.; and on June 11, the Langley location, at 20159 88 Ave. was robbed around 5:15 p.m. On June 12, around 8 p.m. in the 1200-block of Johnston Road, Norris entered Small Ritual Coffee – run by the Church at Southpoint – and produced a knife. He took cash from the till, as well as money collected for a local cancer society fundraising effort. Langley RCMP said Norris was arrested as a result of a conversation between a Langley store owner who had just been robbed and a passerby. “We’d like to convey our appreciation and

thanks to the two civilians who provided key information to police, which assisted us in making an arrest,” Sgt. Ravinder Pawar said shortly after the arrest was announced last month. “We just needed the last piece of the puzzle from the public in order to gather evidence to support robbery charges.” The tip came in June 19. And on June 21, the Surrey RCMP’s Strike Force Target Team, in collaboration with Langley RCMP, arrested Norris. “Since the start of this investigation both detachments have been working together sharing information and resources,” Surrey RCMP Sgt. Drew Grainger said. As well as a jail term, Norris was handed a lifetime firearms prohibition.

Surrey council has given preliminary approval to a development on a heritage site that will see the razing of more than 300 mature trees. The developer is asking to remove 332 trees – many of them more than 82 feet tall – from the back end of a forest on the 20-acre Bose Farm at 16420 64 Ave. Platinum Enterprises is planning to build 65 single-family homes and 158 townhomes on the property. The developer has agreed to preserve the Henry Bose farmhouse, milk cooling shed and calf barn on the heritage property. Surrey councillors voted 4-3 last week in favour of sending the proposal forward to public hearing. Couns. Bruce Hayne, Barinder Rasode and Judy Villeneuve opposed it. (Mayor Dianne Watts was absent from Monday’s landuse meeting and Coun. Mary Martin, who chaired, did not vote.) “I’ve heard really loud and clear from our town hall meetings how we need to manage our growth better when it comes to issues like our environment,” Rasode said later. Said Villeneuve: “For me, I was a bit horrified with that number of trees. I just don’t want that site to look like the Mary Hill Bypass.” Coun. Barbara Steele noted council asked the developer to save as many of those trees as possible. “I think it’s a development that’s overdue,” Steele said, adding she’s pleased with the heritage preservation. “I went for the scenario that isn’t 100 per cent perfect.” Martin and Watts both said Thursday that they have concerns with the removal of the forest. “This is like a pristine forest area and I’m very concerned about it,” Martin said. Watts noted residents will have their say at the public hearing. “I will go into that with an open mind, but I have some serious concerns,” the mayor said. The public hearing is scheduled for July 23 at 7 p.m. at city hall.

He said his client plans to do anything she can to become a positive role model. “Ms. Warren was a criminology student and plans to spend the rest of her life making amends for what she has done here,â€? Cacchioni said Friday. He said Warren will be doing jail time for the offence, noting that sentences for her charges range from two to five or six years in prison. Kassandra’s mother, Markita Kaulius, tearfully laid out the stark fact of the family’s loss. “We’re pleased that she’s pleaded guilty to this, it saves us (from) going through a trial, but it doesn’t change anything for us,â€? she said. “For us, Kassandra is still gone‌ it’s a loss to society, it’s a loss to our family, to her friends, and the community lost somebody very special.â€? Markita Kaulius doesn’t buy the defence’s notion that Warren always wanted to plead guilty. Warren has given the family a letter of apology, but the mother couldn’t say whether she would be reading it. “I can’t forgive her – my daughter is gone,â€? she said. “I have a bedroom down the hall that still has all of her things in it and

Public hearings in White Rock

Townhouse plans opposed Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Two townhouse projects proposed for White Rock received little support during public hearings last week. The projects – a 20-unit complex eyed for 1526, 1536, 1550 and 1556 Finlay St., and a fiveunit complex proposed for 15118 Thrift Ave. – both require zoning bylaw amendments to proceed. But the majority of those who spoke July 9 said neither development would improve the areas – or the city as a whole – for those who already live there. “(It’s) too many townhouses on a property of less than an acre,� Louise Grant told council of the Finlay Street proposal, which would be built east of Peace Arch Hospital and south of the power station at North Bluff Road. Grant also named too little green space, small units and the com-

Paul Stanton, the city’s director of planning, told council the project is proposed for the Eastside Residential Infill Area, a zone created to permit construction of narrow-lot, single-family homes or townhouses. With four blocks of buildings, the complex would

offer two parking spaces per unit and central access, he said. Russell Avenue resident Donald Fleming said he is concerned people are buying properties without having interest in the community. “It’s more an investment in their own bank account,� he said. Regarding the Thrift Avenue development, city clerk Tracey Arthur said eight letters of opposition – along with a 22-name petition – had been received. Five residents spoke against the project, all of whom cited concerns about proposed laneway access. “It is going to be bedlam if this goes in as proposed,� warned Ron Powell, who lives in a 34-unit building that backs onto the lane. Project architect Maciej Dembek, of Barnett Dembek Architects, assured steps had been taken to address concerns. Proposed amendments are scheduled for a council vote July 23.

White Rock cyclist hit by dump truck A 52-year-old White Rock woman suffered serious injuries Saturday, when she was clipped by a dump truck as she cycled along 16 Avenue. Police say the woman was westbound on the thoroughfare in the 18000-block around 11:30 a.m.

July 14 when a red or dark burgundy truck pulling a pup trailer passed her in the same direction, knocking her off her bike. The woman was thrown into the ditch, and is believed to have broken her pelvis. She was airlifted to Royal Columbian Hospital with

non-life-threatening injuries. The truck driver did not stop, and it remains unclear if he or she realized what had happened. Police are asking anyone with information that could help identify the truck driver to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.

Cost of housing is changing

H

ousing sales are steady in the Fraser Valley, even as they seem to be in a decline in Metro Vancouver. That’s the story of June real estate sales from the two real estate boards – Fraser Valley, which covers Surrey, White Rock and Cloverdale, and Greater Vancouver. Declines in sales activity and prices are more marked in Greater Vancouver, but as neighbourhoods and Lower Mainland cities are so different, it is hard to paint with too broad a brush. However, there are a few basic trends which seem to be emerging. One is that, despite low interest rates, residents in all cities seem to be unwilling to pay any more for housing. Prices have been going up and up for the past decade, and are now at the point where many working people simply can’t afford to buy. This applies in single-family residential neighbourhoods on the Semiahmoo Peninsula just as much as it does on the pricey west side of Vancouver. Another troubling trend is residents’ inability to qualify for a mortgage. The federal government has tightened up the amortization period for homes requiring Canada Mortgage and Housing mortgage insurance – it is now 25 years. Even with low interest rates, that means bigger monthly payments. With prices so high, and with few people seeing wage increases, it means more and more people simply can’t get into the market. A third trend is more intangible but nonetheless valid. People have a sense that the economy isn’t doing nearly as well as it could, and even positive economic news does not entice them to go out and borrow a great deal of money. Home construction, renovation, real estate sales and businesses catering to homeowners together account for a huge portion of most cities’ economic activity. Any significant downturn in housing construction and sales will have a major effect on many people – even those who are not in the market for a new house. It should be the goal of governments at all levels to make home ownership as easy as possible for as many people as possible. People who own their homes have a real and tangible stake in their community, and this in turns fosters a better sense of community and more involvement with others. If lower prices help more people to eventually buy homes, that’s a good thing.

So far this week you’ve said… yes 54% no 46% 109 responding and respond to inquiries. (Major events are automatically tweeted overnight.) Verified reports are fed from highways staff and contractors all over the province and co-ordinated through the provincial highways condition centre in the Lower Mainland. It’s become a primary source of information for radio and TV traffic and news reporters around B.C. The mobile service now has an option for drivers to report new problems they encounter. After determining your smartphone’s location, the site displays the name and phone number of the local maintenance contractor who can take the report. For those who haven’t joined the smartphone era, there is an oldfashioned option. Dialing 5-1-1 anywhere in the province gives access to a toll-free line that connects to recorded DriveBC messages. Agarwal said use of that service has been declining as phones with web access become more popular. The 5-1-1 service also requires you to use the keypad to select your route from a numerical list, so drivers would have to pull over rather than breach the new restrictions on using handheld devices while driving. The 5-1-1 system still gets surges of heavy use during major events like the recent flooding. The plan is to upgrade the system to allow voice recognition, so drivers can use headsets to get updates on the move.

letters Peace Arch News

Use green to make green Editor: I was at the White Rock council meeting on July 9 when former councillor Margaret Woods queried regarding the surplus of approximately $8 million. If this is in fact true, would council consider using a tiny portion to retain a little green space by dedicating the lot at 15118 Thrift Ave. as an extension of Bryant Park? (Editor’s note: Woods was asking about money left in the city’s capital asset budget, wondering whether taxes could be reduced. The lot in question is the subject of a current rezoning application to allow five units.) This may sound laughable, but why not give a little breathing space to this two-block radius of Thrift and Johnston? Two towers and another condominium are going up now. Why can we not have a little green corner on the south side of Thrift? L.C. Bjorknas, White Rock

We’re secure without video Editor: Re: An eye on being proactive, safe, July 10 letters. I really think letter-writer Bob Nicholas is highly exaggerating the amount of times people are photographed each day. But even if he wasn’t, does it make sense to be photographed yet another time? I am sure it is going to be mostly the same people day after day, with some deviation in the summer. I don’t understand why he is so preoccupied with “information for first responders.” To what? I live near the pier and I was not aware that there were so many accidents or whatever – except for the beached whale, and there was no absence of information then; everyone had their cellphones out and dispatched information out before the media. Which is a reminder to the writer, that a majority of people carry cellphones and are capable of calling 911 and giving information, should something happen. As for not having the luxury of spare cash to hire more bylaw officers – thank God. Do we need more personnel to hand out parking tickets or harass people who have dogs? As for monitoring the pier, I wasn’t aware there was any threat. It seems everyone I have talked to about the cameras have had a negative response and have said things like, “what purpose would they have when most of the problems which occur in the summer are mainly down at the beach where youths party?” Or, “what is this, a police state?” Or, “isn’t there a better place to spend our money?” What I think is that cameras in the downtown area on Stanley Cup night may have helped to identify offenders, but it sure didn’t help to

prosecute them. So, it makes me wonder, then, when I read on the Peace Arch News opinion page that there was such a high percentage of people for the cameras. (Editor’s note: in our June 20-27 online Question of the Week, 66 per cent of responders agreed with security cameras on the waterfront.) D. Barros, White Rock

Mobile talk will take lives Editor: Even if some cellphones don’t cause brain cancer and kill their users, mobile phones will eventually help to reduce the human overpopulation problem by distracting their users while driving, cycling or walking. Every day, I see drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians – mobile phone in hand – run red lights, drive onto the sidewalk or walk across the street long after the light has changed. Most of them luckily didn’t get into an accident, but they will eventually. Just yesterday, a bunch of us started to cross the street at a

crosswalk after the light had turned green, when a cyclist – blathering obliviously on his phone – blasted through the crowd against the light. He came that close to being hit by a car, and even closer to ramming into one or some of us. Fortunately, I saw him coming and warned the others in time. He still isn’t aware of how close he came to being injured, or killed, or injuring or killing someone else. Yeah, I have a mobile phone, but I never use it while I’m mobile. How about you? Have you killed anyone yet? Jerry Steinberg, Surrey

Quality of life lost over time Editor: I have been visiting my mother since she moved to White Rock 24 years ago, and I am saddened by the changes I have noticed in the town in the last decade or so. Relentless building of highrises has added to the density of people and increased both traffic and noise.

This summer, I see more units being built. How did those in the local government think that adding these buildings would improve the quality of life for the residents of White Rock? Other than making the developers richer – and maybe a few others – has this construction boom made White Rock a better place to live for its residents? Have taxes gone down as a result of their being built? Not according to my mother. Yesterday, I visited a friend who lives in the Oak Bay area of Victoria. He told me the local government decided years ago to outlaw highrises since they would detract from the quality of life of the people who already live there and change the character of the neighborhood for the worse. It’s too bad that the people who have run White Rock for the past 10 years or so didn’t have the same civic mindedness and intelligence. And as for those goofy-looking bears like the one in front of the library and the one on Johnston Road near Thrift Avenue – what a ridiculous waste of money! Pierre Home-Douglas, Dorval, Que.

The City of Surrey has been doing too little to protect its farmers and ensure food security, writes Donna Passmore.

A disconnect in Surrey’s approach Editor: Re: Family business derailed by overpass, July 12. Thanks to Peace Arch News reporter Dan Ferguson for exposing anti-agricultural practices of the City of Surrey. 152 Street isn’t the only place the City of Surrey has put an agricultural business out of business for highway expansion – they also put out of business the King George Boulevard farm market in the Serpentine Fen area. That particular farm market is now a truck parking lot for business vehicles. Illegally. But without any opposition on council, talking to the city has become like talking to a brick wall. Under Mayor Dianne Watts and her ‘Surrey Burst’ team, the city has turned its back on farmland protection and food security, ironically even as it wrestles with a rapidly growing homeless problem. • Illegal truck parking has flourished under Watts. While communities like Richmond are addressing identical problems head-on, after an initial noble start the City of Surrey has basically turned its back on the problem; • Watts’ road-building party has cost the city hundreds of acres of prime farmland and wildlife habitat. • Dumping/landfilling on farmland is virtually unchecked, and I shudder to guess as to the amount of farmland that has been robbed of its agricultural capability because the city doesn’t want to lose the votes of the Indo-Canadian community that dominates our

local trucking population and that of ALR owners. • Monster houses on ALR have flourished under Watts. • On virtually every serious farmland threat, Watts has refused to take advantage of the expertise of the city’s agricultural advisory committee. This is astounding, given she was such a critic of her predecessor for doing the same with his environmental advisory committee. Last week’s news that the U.S., the world’s largest corn supplier, is losing a third of its crop to global warminginduced drought is a harsh reminder of how fragile food security is, and the importance of protecting agriculture. We appreciate Watts’ personal commitment to homelessness, but there is a serious disconnect in her approach. Simply throwing taxpayers’ money at food banks and homeless shelters is a Band-Aid approach that is not sustainable given the global food-security crisis. Each year the city spends tens of thousands of dollars on advertising and public relations campaigns, like the Stewart Farm agriculture festival, intent on creating the impression that the city is dedicated to agriculture and food security and environmental sustainability. Groups like the Farmland Defence League and Fraser Valley Conservation Coalition don’t have the resources to achieve similar communications reach, so articles like Ferguson’s are critical to providing some truthful balance in the information that voters and taxpayers receive.

news Stranded bovine rescued by emergency crews

Moo-ving experience for cow Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

An appeal for help with a stranded cow brought police and fire crews to the 12300-block of Colebrook Road Saturday night. Surrey Fire Service’s assistant Chief Steve Robinson said Engine 11 firefighters and a trio of Surrey RCMP officers – including a supervisor – worked for 90 minutes to free the bovine, which was found stuck up to its neck in a mud-filled ditch. Robinson said the team, which arrived around 10 p.m. Saturday,

“spent a fair amount of time” digging mud out from around the cow. They dug deep enough to insert lumber for the cow to get its footing on, then secured a sling around the animal to help it walk out. “It was a good example of emergency services working together,” Robinson said. “RCMP and firefighters, they were all digging in the mud to get this cow out of there. “It’s a great story.” According to police, an area resident flagged down an officer

to report the situation. At the time, the animal had apparently been stuck for at least two hours. The cow was exhausted by its ordeal, but uninjured. Robinson said Surrey fire crews receive such reports “every once in a while.” And while the city does not have a dedicated animal-rescue unit, the calls are treated “very seriously,” he said. “The bottom line is, the cow was unharmed and is back doing whatever cows do,” Robinson said.

Blogging from ‘the best city on Earth’ Sarah Massah

Staff Reporter

n his way to the liquor store – after the crushing defeat of the Vancouver Canucks by the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup playoffs last year – Scott Graham saw something on 88 Avenue that made him stop in his tracks. It wasn’t the violent images of cars on fire and Molotov cocktails splashed over the screen of televisions and the Internet; that would come later in the evening. It was a family – a man, a woman and three children – standing on the street, waving their Canucks towels to a chorus of honks from passing cars. The moment of calm was brief. Minutes later, word of the Stanley Cup riots came pouring in. “Everything starts happening downtown and social media just goes nuts blaming the whole thing on Surrey,” he said. “I called my friends, who were at different pubs watching the game in Surrey, and they said everything was fine, so why were we being blamed?” Angry with the way his city was being portrayed, the Fleetwood resident went home and began writing a post on his popular food blog, What’s For Lunch BC. “I’ve been living here since I was nine and I think it’s the best place to live. I normally don’t write about anything other than food but I had to get it out. I went and starting writing a post on my food blog and that’s how it all began,” Graham said. Graham wrote about the skewed – and often negative – vision of Surrey that the rest of Metro Vancouver has. “How is Surrey getting blamed for a riot in Vancouver? The answer is simple, people don’t understand Surrey, especially people who live on the ‘good’ side of the bridges and tunnels,” he wrote. “What did I see last night? I saw my hockey team lose, I saw people in a pub in Surrey upset but not angry and I saw a family standing on the side of the road an hour after the game

Scott Graham, here with daughter Hayley, blogs about all things Surrey, which he calls the best place on earth. had ended waving their Canucks towels and cheering to cars passing by. That is what Surrey is to me, my home, a misunderstood place that has always treated me well and a place where I’m proud to raise my daughter. I’m from Surrey, the best city on Earth.” The blog post was linked on various social media sites, including in a Tweet posted by Miss604 blogger and Surrey native Rebecca Bollwitt, and quickly began to get comment from a range of followers. “It got huge attention. I had a friend whose children go to Clayton Heights, and at the parentteacher conference my blog post was brought up. People young and old were reading it. I thought it was pretty cool,” Graham said. Following the positive feedback,

Ready, AIM SWING!

Graham decided to start a blog all about his hometown, with the result being SurreyIsTheBomb. com Since its inception, the blog has become a go-to site for those who want to know about all things Surrey – a passion of Graham’s he credits his father for sparking. “My dad never understood why everyone always put Surrey down, we’ve lived in Edmonton and Ontario and this has always been our home. He is the person who kind of instilled this whole anti-hating Surrey thing in me,” Graham said. The blog’s content covers events, issues and reviews from Whalley and South Surrey, West Newton and East Clayton and everything in-between. More often than not, Graham

even includes White Rock – officially not a part of Surrey since April 15, 1957 – which he refers to as “our little cousin.” “This is really a blog that’s all about Surrey. Sometimes you find that the blogs concentrate on one certain neighbourhood, which is fine, but I wanted to cover the whole city,” Graham said. When he’s not writing about events and issues, Graham is tasting the gastronomical gems the city has to offer and posting it on What’s For Lunch BC. Although that blog covers all of Metro Vancouver, Graham said some of the best places to dine are right here in his community. “It’s great to find places that are amazing and doing their own thing, and they’re right here in my backyard,” Graham said, noting he

has made a section for Surrey and White Rock restaurant reviews on SurreyIsTheBomb.com Despite having these two online projects, among others, Graham doesn’t plan on slowing down. The jack-of-all-trades also works for Beer Thirst, which imports craft beer, and has formed Surrey Beer Club to raise funds for Surrey Memorial Hospital. Kicking off Aug. 16 at Big Ridge Brewing Co., the club will meet throughout the year to taste a variety of brews while collecting money for the hospital with raffles and draws. The club’s formation was Graham’s way of giving back to the hospital for the exceptional care his daughter, Hayley, received after being born more than three months premature in February 2010. “We went to Surrey Memorial after my wife, Lyndsey, began to experience some pain. They were like ‘OK, something is wrong here and we’re not equipped to deal with it, we’re going to get you to Royal Columbian in an ambulance right away,’” Graham said. Lyndsey spent two weeks at Royal Columbian on bed rest before Hayley was born at one pound, 11½ ounces. Eventually, after blood transfusions and tests, she was transferred back to Surrey Memorial, where she spent three months before coming home on Mother’s Day in 2010. Graham and his wife held a fundraiser for Variety Club on her first birthday, raising $4,000 for the organization. And now, through Surrey Beer Club, Graham hopes to continue his philanthropy work, while drawing people from all over Surrey and the Lower Mainland to enjoy a brew or two. “It’s so important to give back, and it’s great to be able to do it while highlighting all the awesome stuff my city has to offer,” Graham said. “I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.” For more, go to surreyisthebomb. com or whatsforlunchbc.com

And, given that the longtime White Rock city councillor was also an admirer of men in uniform, she would have been pleased at the turnout of firefighters and RCMP officers who came to pay her their final respects Wednesday, during a celebration of life at the White Rock Community Centre. “Mary is smiling at the firefighters today,” quipped Judy Forster, one of three former White Rock mayors who spoke at the tribute. Anderson, 84, died June 26, nearly four months after undergoing a heart-valve replacement. She had served the city on council for 12½ years, but her love for the city dates back much further. Forster’s comment was among many stories about Anderson that evoked a chuckle that afternoon from the more than 200 residents, business people and fellow politicos who gathered. Keeping the event lighthearted is what Anderson would have wanted, said Mayor Wayne Baldwin. “We know that she would want this to be an uplifting experience, lots of shared memories… and no sadness whatsoever,” he said. Keeping with the theme, Baldwin recalled the time Anderson suggested she would have liked to see him, too, in a uniform. “I told her, ‘nothing fits but the hat,’” he said. Baldwin described Anderson as a woman who had “a smile and a laugh that could warm up a room and a wit that could cut like a razor,” – qualities he’s sure contributed to her being quoted in the newspapers seemingly more often than many other council members. Surrey-White Rock MLA Gordon Hogg – White Rock’s mayor from 1984-1993 – recalled

the slogan Anderson was considering using when she first decided to run for council: There’s something about Mary. The popular movie of the same name had recently been released, he noted, and Anderson quickly proved herself worthy of the phrase. When Hogg was mayor, Anderson would often visit him at city hall, “to tell me what it was I needed to do.” Shortly after her heart operation in March, Anderson called Hogg to come for a visit, praising the care she’d received in hospital, raving about the family she’d recently reunited with and demanding he bring her a Tim Hortons muffin – “and she told me what I needed to do.” “She was right – there truly is something about Mary.” Other speakers included Jackie Smith, executive director of Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation, former White Rock mayor Hardy Staub and Marilyn Rice, who first met Anderson in 2001 but became extremely close over the 15 months before she died. Their bond solidified after Anderson called early one morning for help, Rice said. The senior had fallen the night before in city hall chambers and broken her hip. While she was seen in Peace Arch Hospital that night, the fracture wasn’t discovered, and Anderson had been helped home to bed, then left to fend for herself. In the morning, unable to get up, she called Rice. “That phone call changed my life for the next 15 months,” Rice said, describing how the pair discovered they were kindred spirits. Anderson was intensely private about her personal life, Rice noted, but opened up after a

phone call during last fall’s election campaign. It was from a relative in England, who had news that the children she had lost touch with 50 years before had tracked her down and were anxious to connect. “Those years of carrying that private, heavy burden fell off,” Rice said, and Anderson added a new passion – family – to the list that for so long gave priority to city politics and health care. Sadly, while Anderson spent five days with her son and daughter in April when they travelled to Blaine to meet her, her final days were once again burdened by the inability to be with her children. Her daughter, Jenny Awakuni, was denied a passport by U.S. officials, preventing her from crossing the border to be with her mother. “It was very unfortunate that government bureaucracy got in the way of Jenny getting up here to see her mother,” Rice said. Rice said she takes comfort in knowing Anderson is finally getting the break she so needed from the physical pain of the weeks before. “May her rest be eternal,” she said. Wednesday’s service concluded with a blessing and songs by members of Semiahmoo First Nation. Band councillor Joanne Charles said Anderson “has a special place in our heart” for her work to build bridges between the city and SFN, and her efforts to work in partnership for the betterment of the Semiahmoo Peninsula. One song performed – the Woman’s Warrior Song – gives thanks to all of the women who have fought for the community, Charles said. “It’s only fitting that that song be sung today,” she said.

Three acres of beautiful gardens filled with over 100 of the artists’ creations, paintings, jewellery, pottery, stone carvings, etc.

Ask any of the 15 volunteer directors of the Surrey 2012 BC Summer Games what the biggest challenges are in hosting the Games and he or she will tell you it’s numbers – big numbers. Take the transportation requirements, for example. Games Director of Transportation Jim Prokop says that 80 full-sized buses and some 30 courtesy cars and min-vans will be used July 18-22 to transport approximately 3,400 athletes, coaches and officials to 22 venues throughout the city and outlying communities. The pick-up and drop-off points include 14 Surrey schools where athletes will sleep as well as airports and other points of arrival and departure for out-oftown participants. “There will be approximately 1,500 bus trips scheduled over five days that will accommodate more than 60,000 participant passenger trips,” says Prokop, who honed his skills in trans-

Annual event raises another $12,500 for charities

Ride clears $100k mark Motorcycle riders who participate in the annual Boardroom Ride have raised more than $100,000 since the Peninsula event began nine years ago, founder Doug Holt says. This year, another $12,500 was collected, with $7,500 going to the Kids Up Front charity in Vancouver, and $5,000 going to the White Rock/ South Surrey hospice society’s programs for kids. The June 22 ride began at restaurant sponsor John Kavanaghs’ Hooke Fish Bar in Crescent Beach, and finished on White Rocks’ West Beach at restaurant sponsor Paul McDonoughs’ Jimmy Flynn’s Celtic Snug. “It is with deep appreciation that I thank our sponsors for their continued support which has enabled us to raise ongoing awareness, and pass on at 100 per cent well over $100,000 in support for local children’s charities,” Holt says. Other sponsors include Trev Deeley Motorcycles, Pharmasave, Cobra

Integrated Systems, RBC Dominion Securities, Black Dog professional driver education as well as BIV Media Group, Action Athletic Wear Ltd. and Brian Hawkes Photographic. The ride slogan is “help us, help the kids!” The goal, Holt explains, is to raise awareness and funding for charities that complement the medical, counselling and social service communities by facilitating the delivery of experiences and activities that can raise the “spirit, desire and will to endure” for local children and their families living under trying circumstances. Those circumstances include children living under palliative care, with chronic or life-threatening illness, mental illness, poverty, loss and neglect. Anyone interested in helping with the ride next year is asked to call Doug Holt at 604-787-1575 or email holtdougge@gmail.com

Depots accept power tools, sports gear what’s Jeff Nagel Black Press

Hundreds of additional electrical products – from drills and other power tools to sports equipment such as treadmills – can now be returned to B.C. depots for recycling. The July 1 expansion of the ElectroRecycle program means consumers are also now paying an extra recycling fee when they buy products that are covered.

A laser level sold in B.C. now costs 75 cents more, while the fees are $2.75 for sewing machines and $4.25 for exercise machines. Those charges, which fund the industry stewardship program, are in addition to fees on many other small appliances that kicked in last October, adding $2.25 to the cost of new toasters and blenders, for example, or an extra $10 for a large microwave oven.

“With these new product categories, ElectroRecycle will help divert even more electrical products from disposal to resource recovery,” Recycling Council of B.C. CEO Brock Macdonald said. Whether the fees charged are separately itemized on a bill or are included in a product’s price depends on the retailer. Formerly known as Unplugged, the expanded program now covers virtually all

consumer electrical products with a power plug or battery that weren’t already being collected through other programs. Electrical products dropped off at ElectroRecycle drop-off locations are sent to processors within Canada and separated into different materials for recycling.

news Stinky food waste composters face Metro fees

Fines mulled for plant odour Jeff Nagel Black Press

Industries such as organiccomposting plants that stink up a local neighbourhood may soon pay fees to Metro Vancouver based on the severity of the odours they emit. The fees are being proposed on a polluter-pay basis to recover what Metro says is hundreds of thousands of dollars a year expended in staff time responding to industrial-odour complaints. “What we’re saying is you can emit the odour but we’re going to charge you based on what impact that odour Ray Robb has,” said Ray Metro manager Robb, Metro’s air quality division manager. The details are set out in a Metro discussion paper that proposes to categorize different emitters based on high, medium and low risk of posing an odour problem. Officials will consider how much odour is emitted, as well as how well it is dispersed and the proximity to people it might offend. “If you put a stinky thing in the

Metro estimates the fees might add up to $110,000 per year for

the worst offenders. Robb said about six operators might now be in the high-risk category, but added more new sources are coming on stream as cities divert more organic waste from landfills. Moderate risk facilities would pay a $500 registration fee and have to develop an odourmanagement plan, which could be subject to review and higher fees if Metro decides the odour is offending the community. Low-risk sites face no fees or requirements. Robb said it’s an important issue to address now because Metro’s decision to mandate curbside organic waste pickup means huge volumes of food waste will be composted in the region. Fraser Richmond Soil and Fibre is taking some food waste already but more operators expected to spring up. All organics will be banned from the region’s dumps and transfer stations by 2015 and residents will be required to put all their food waste in a green bin instead of the garbage. Metro’s discussion paper says smelly emissions can interfere with sleep, add to stress and anxiety, disrupt family barbecues and cause health impacts ranging from nausea and watery eyes to headaches and sore throats.

news Affected drivers had hoped to win back fines, other costs

Court blocks reversal of drunk-driving penalties Jeff Nagel Black Press

Drivers who were hit with tough roadside impaired driving fines and other penalties before some aspects were declared invalid will not be entitled to any retroactive relief, according to a B.C. Supreme Court ruling. Justice Jon Sigurdson rejected the claim brought by four drivers, ruling they are not entitled to be reimbursed for fines and other expenses because his original Nov. 30 decision finding the law invalid is not retroactive to its September 2010 imposition. He also rejected arguments that the province acted in bad faith when it legislated the Administrative Roadside Prohibitions because it knew they would likely be

relief and still have not yet undertaken costly requirements such as attending a responsible driving program or installing an ignition interlock. “Those penalties don’t expire with the passage of time,” he said. Litigants in the case weren’t just demanding repayment of their fees and direct costs. Carol Beam, whose car was impounded 34 days after a failed test in October 2010, claimed $6,869 for costs that included six days of lost income, her need to hire a driver, legal fees, the cost of an ignition interlock and taking the responsible driver program. Scott Roberts told the court he agreed to have his $5,000 vehicle destroyed because he couldn’t afford the impound fees. He

claimed nearly $28,000, including lost wages. The province adjusted the law this spring after Sigurdson’s earlier ruling found it invalid because there wasn’t

an adequate method to challenge a failed reading of over 0.08 on a roadside test. Now police officers must tell suspected impaired drivers they

are entitled to blow a second time on the screening device and that the lowest of the two readings will apply. Previously, the second reading was binding.

Mystery classic Prepare for chills and thrills – Peninsula Productions brings Agatha Christie’s legendary 1952 mystery The Mousetrap to

White Rock, July 11-28 at the Coast Capital Playhouse (8 p.m. performances). “We really feel that the Peninsula is ripe for high-quality entertainment of all kinds and we intend to fill the gap,” said Geoff Giffin, partner in Peninsula Productions with artistic director Wendy Bollard. “Wendy has an extensive background in the arts and is thrilled to be putting her experience to good use in her hometown.” Something like a live-action version of Clue, the theatre classic which has run continuously in London since its debut 60 years ago, concerns mystery and misdeeds at historic Monkswell Manor, recently renovated as a guest house. A strange assortment of characters – a newlywed couple, a persnickety older woman, a flamboyant young man, an army major, a mannish woman, an unexpected guest and a keen young police sergeant – are stranded at the manor by a snowstorm. News of a recent murder arrives, along with the suspicion that the murderer may be one of the group. Among players who will be wellknown locally in The Mousetrap are Paul Kloegman (The Cat’s Meow), Lori Tych (The Lion In Winter), Sam Gordon (A Bedfull of Foreigners) and, in a departure from her usual public appearances as a singer, Laine Henderson, in the lead role of Monkswell Manor’s new owner Mollie Ralston. Also in the cast are Stephen Benjamin Fowler, Spenser

White Rock’s Chelsea Tucker plays the role of Maureen in director Ryan Mooney’s next Fighting Chance production, the musical Rent, running until Aug. 5 at the Waterfront Theatre (1412 Cartwright St., Granville Island). The groundbreaking Pulitzer Prize and Tony award-winning rock opera by Jonathan Larson was a huge hit for Fighting Chance in 2009, breaking box-office records at North Vancouver’s Presentation House with 29 soldout performances. “Our first production of Rent really put us on the map as a theatre company and also introduced some phenomenal talents to Vancouver audiences,” Mooney said. “While it would be easy to just recreate our hit 2009 production we’ve tried to bring a new edge and excitement to the show as well as many talented new faces.” Among members of the ensemble who will be familiar to White Rock and Surrey audiences are Cathy Wilmot, Nicole Smashnuk (Lend Me A Tenor) and Paul Rowell. Performances are at 8 p.m., with 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday matinees starting July 21. For tickets ($15 to $40), visit www.ticketstonight.ca or call 604684-2787.

Mystery dinner Producer Trevor Jenkins’ popular Grim Reaper mystery dinner theatre shows are becoming a monthly event at Beecher Street Café in Crescent Beach, starting with The Case of the Strawberry Letter, Thursday, July 26 at 7 p.m. The show invites the audience to participate and play detective (and enjoy a multi-course meal) while professional actors play out an Agatha Christie-style plot. In The Case of the Strawberry Letter, three innocent-seeming people each receive a letter inviting them to partake in a strawberry festival – at which someone was murdered the night before. “Somebody is poisoned – but it wasn’t in the strawberries or in the cream,” said Jenkins, who added he is looking forward to, bringing the mysteries to the cafe regularly in conjunction with Beecher Street proprietor Rob Ahlgren. Price per person is $55 (including dinner but not including tax or gratuity). For reservations, call 604-5381964.

Brynjolfson, 42, admitted after the race that racing head-to-head

She narrowly edged Rhae Shaw, Canada’s reigining criterium champion, for the title. Shaw won the women’s criterium Saturday but was beset by mechanical troubles Sunday – she had two flat tires and eventually finished sixth. The men’s omnium was won by Germany’s Florenz Knauer, who won the hill climb.

Jockey Mario Gutierrez rides Devil in Disguise to victory at Hastings Park Racecourse on July 1.

Another honour for jockey Former South Surrey jockey Mario Gutierrez has another win to add to his resume. The popular jockey – who raced at Hastings Park for Glen Todd before hitting it big in the U.S. – was named top jockey at the ESPY Awards last week in Los Angeles. The award show, created by sports network ESPN, is held annually to honour the top achievements in sports. Gutierrez is certainly deserving of the honour after coming just

one race short of winning the prestigious Triple Crown – which has not been won since 1978. Riding I’ll Have Another, Gutierrez won both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes, and was aiming for the third leg of the crown – the Belmont Stakes – but I’ll Have Another was scratched from the race with a leg injury. The injury ended the thoroughbred’s racing career. Since his run at the Triple Crown ended, Gutierrez, who now lives in Los Angeles and races primar-

ily out of famed Santa Anita Park, has been travelling throughout North America, racing at different parks. On July 1, Gutierrez – once the top-earning jockey at Hastings Park – made his return to the East Vancouver track, winning the fourth race of the card – the $30,000 Chris Loseth Handicap – aboard Devil in Disguise. On Sunday, Gutierrez was in Auburn, Wash. racing at Emerald Downs. - Nick Greenizan

SURREY’S STREET TREES

Trees are thirsty too! Summer is here; the weather is warm; and the trees on your street and in your yard need water. Like us, trees need long refreshing drinks of water to stay healthy. Here’s what you can do to help your neighbourhood street trees and the trees in your yard this summer: 1. Water the trees twice a week. 2. Water thoroughly at the base of the trees for 15 minutes. 3. Water during the cooler parts of the day (early morning and dusk) and when it isn’t raining. 4. Water slowly so that the water has time to soak into the dry soil and reach the roots, instead of pooling on the surface. For more information about street trees, please call 604.501.5050 For more information about private trees, please call 604.591.4675

A new surgery-free, non-invasive technique gets rid of unwanted fat! Even if you’ve endured never-ending marathon workouts, you probably have pockets of plump that won’t budge. And while going under the knife may be tempting, the pain is not! Now you don’t have to. Thanks to Zeltiq a new surgery-free FDA approved technique is available and New Beauty Institute is pleased to have been chosen to be able to offer the treatment.

www.welcomewagon.ca

On The Peninsula

How it works: As temperatures plunge, fat cells freeze long before muscle, skin or any other tissue does! Zeltiq Coolsculpting takes advantage of this by chilling fat deposits to around 45 degrees. “Damaged, frozen fat cells can’t be repaired by the body, so they’re smoothing out even stubborn fat pads within two to four months” says dermatologist Mark S. Nestor, M.D., Director of the Center for Cosmetic Enhancement in Miami, Florida. And specific troublespots can be easily targeted! What to expect: Zeltiq Coolsculpting takes about one hour per treated area. Since no anaesthetics, needles, or incisions are needed you can head back to your normal activities right away; there is no downtime. Treated areas tend to look red and feel a bit stiff for about 20 minutes, and some patients experience temporary bruising, numbness, or tenderness.

What studies show: “Zeltiq removes 20% - 25% of the fat from treated areas, but patients say their troublespots actually shrink 40% - 50%.” “It’s producing better results than the research had predicted. Patients love it!” The catch: If you’re obese, you will not be happy with this treatment, notes Caree Ludwar, owner of New Beauty Institute. “It’s meant for people who are close to their ideal body weight and want to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat - the sort of thing that wrecks the way clothing fits. However, we have had very good results with larger belly areas on some patients.”

IN MEMORIAM

In Loving Memory

Michael Nichol December 1, 1922 – July 16, 2010 It’s been two years today since dear dad passed away And we’re still feeling empty and numb But we’re muddling through and thinking of you Especially our dear sweet mom All the time that we shared is a gift and so rare As a family you held us with pride And you tried your best nothing more nothing less To be the man that we hold inside We miss your conversation, the stories left untold And all your crazy antics that truly broke the mold The passion in your music flowing through your veins With never an occasion where you didn’t light the flame To the man who spoke what’s in his heart And said what’s on his mind Our thanks for all you’ve given us And all you’ve left behind Always ... Your Loving Family

BAYFIELD, Yvette On June 26th, 2012, our much loved wife, mother and grandmother, Yvette Bayfield died peacefully at Peace Arch Hospital, Palliative Care Unit with John and Ann by her side. Dearly missed and lovingly remembered by her husband John, daughter Ann (Floyd), son Ken (Brenda) and grandchildren Tristan, Brookes, Tyler and Emma. Yvette was born and raised in Vancouver and graduated from Lord Byng High School in 1943 where she was a star track athlete. Yvette graduated from UBC in 1947 with a BA in Psychology. She went on to get her teaching training, starting her teaching career in Dawson Creek with her new husband John. They both taught in Dawson Creek for 2 years. In 1950 they moved to Chilliwack. After taking time out to raise her young family she restarted her career and taught in both Agassiz & Chilliwack until they moved to Coquitlam and on to West Vancouver. She continued teaching for another 10 years as a Counsellor at Argyle Secondary in North Vancouver. Along the way she obtained her Masters Degree in Psychology from Western Washington University in Bellingham. Yvette and John retired in West Vancouver in 1985 and had many years of travelling and enjoying their retirement. In 1999 they moved to South Surrey and continued to enjoy the good life and weather! Yvette’s family would like to thank Drs. Gibbings, Pretty and Parr, the nurses on 6E at Peace Arch Hospital and Rhonda of White Rock Home Health for their compassion and care. In lieu of flowers, donations to Peace Arch Hospital, Palliative Care Unit are greatly appreciated. There will be no service by request.

Mary Davies died quietly in her home in the loving presence of her husband Glanville, son Timothy and daughter Nicola. Mary was born in Aberkenfig, South Wales, and educated in Bridgend County School and the School for Domestic Science in Cardiff. She was always keen on sport and played centre-forward for the University of Wales field hockey team even though she never achieved 5’ in height. She married Glanville Davies when he finished his medical training in Cardiff. She taught and her two children attended the ill-fated Aberfan Elementary School, three years before the disaster which destroyed it. After two years in Biggar, Sask., she left for Saskatoon where she taught Home Economics to children from rural families of varying ethnic origin at Aberdeen Secondary School. This was the most rewarding time of her teaching career. She then left with her family for Kamloops, BC, where she enjoyed an active life with their many friends. In 1981, with the children living independently, she joined her husband in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, where she worked part-time in the Medical Records Dept. and enjoyed tennis and racquetball as well as the excellent travel opportunities. Retiring in 1989 she joined her husband on his 39’ Nicholson Ketch in the Caribbean and South America. At the time prior to the Gulf War she returned with her husband to King Faisal Specialist Hospital in Riyadh and spent the next five years there helping out Dr Andy Padmos with documenting oncological medical research data. She and her husband spent five more enjoyable and rewarding years there. Returning to Surrey she enjoyed living in an apartment where she could walk to all facilities and loved the companionship of her good friends in Nicowynd Golf Club and in the bridge clubs she enjoyed. She was a devoted grandmother to Nicholas, Christian, Mitchell and Alexander. We would like to thank our family doctor and friend, Dr Glenn Anderson, and the doctors and staff of Peace Arch Hospital and Surrey Memorial Hospital for their loving care, also Dr Derek Lowe and the wonderful Palliative Care Team, who were like a gift from God. We cannot express our heartfelt gratitude to all our dear friends who have helped us through the last few weeks. A funeral service will be held at the Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre, 14831 28th Avenue, Surrey, on Friday July 20 at 11:00 am. No flowers by request but onations if desired to Mary’s Fvourite charity, Covenant House, 575 Drake Street, Vancouver V6B 4K8.

A 2nd Generation Vancouverite, George passed away on July 6th 2012 at 12:20 pm at George Derby Retirement Home. Dad was a World War 2 veteran, fighting in the battle of the Atlantic, a Navy Gunner and Legion Member. A Vancouver Police Officer for 25 years rising to the rank of Sergeant, George then became acting Chief of Police and Deputy Chief of Police in Regina for 3 years and finally Director of Tactics for CLEU for the remaining years with the Police Force. Dad fought crime for his whole career over a period of 30 years. He protected and valiantly defended our Country, our City and our Family his whole life! He also taught Criminology at SFU for years and inspired many of our youth to join the forces. Dad was a real fighter and demonstrated this fighting spirit right to the end in a 2 month battle with his health. A true inspiration to all who knew and loved him, he will be sorely missed. Dad loved travelling to sunny places for most of his years; his favourite spots included Hawaii, Mexico and Arizona. Predeceased by his Second wife Daphne of 28 years and his beloved brother Jerry. Survived by first wife Bernice of 26 years as well as his 3 sisters Marilyn, Beverly and Sharron. Survived by 6 children, George, Larry, Pam, Leslie, Wayne and Shawn; two step children, Scott and Kelly; 11 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren. George had a strong Roman Catholic faith, loved to drink rum on social occasions and tell stories to the children and his friends and had a great sense of humour. Dad loved his dog Frau, the BC Lions and the Vancouver Canucks. He also enjoyed painting and drawing at George Derby and loved all the wonderful women there who helped him! Thank you to all of the George Derby Staff for caring so much for our Dad during his final years with us. We will truly miss his roaring laugh that was infectious Dad we wish you all the best on your new journey. You are our true hero. Love your family and friends. Please join us to celebrate Dad’s life at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre on Saturday, July 21st at 2:00pm; 14831 28 Avenue, Surrey.
