Home from hospital

Festival hits the beach

On the road to recovery

Sea fest setbacks motivate organizers

White Rock resident Peggy White came home from hospital on Friday to continue her recovery from a July 14 hit-and-run. The active 52-year-old spent two weeks in Royal Columbian Hospital after she was knocked off her bike by a tandem dump truck while riding along 16 Avenue near 180 Street. She suffered 11 broken bones, including fractures to her pelvis, sacrum, two vertebrae and two ribs. On Tuesday, White greeted a Peace Arch News reporter at her Marine Drive residence, on her feet and moving, slowly, with the aid of a walker. “I’m really happy to be alive,” she says. White doesn’t remember the collision, only coming to in a water-filled ditch with Victoria resident Randy Duncan and Peninsula resident Norm Nagel, the Good Samaritans who came to her rescue. “What do you say to someone who saves your life?” she says. “I’m so thankful.” She says both men balked at being called heroes. Duncan does remember the collision. He saw it happen. The Island man was heading east on the thoroughfare around 11:30 a.m. on July 14 when he noticed White on her bicycle approaching in the “very, very small shoulder” of the westbound lane, and a dark red tandem dump truck coming up behind her. The truck wasn’t moving over to give the cyclist room and it wasn’t slowing down. “I thought, where’s he going?” Duncan told PAN a few days after the hit-and-run occurred. “There was no room for him to veer over to the other side of the road.” Then, Duncan says, the truck’s front bumper hit the rear of the bike. “The bike flew, and parts of the bike, and of course, the cyclist flew through the air. I thought, I’m going to find somebody dead.” When Duncan got to White, he says she was semi-conscious and starting to swallow water.  see page 4

Despite a slow start, Spirit of the Sea Festival organizers say they are confident this year’s lineup of activities and entertainment will be a sure crowdpleaser. A number of set-backs, including a lack of volunteers, have pushed organizers to work harder to ensure festival-goers will have a memorable experience Aug. 3-6. “We have a really solid core team that has been able to work some miracles with the limited resources that we have available,” said festival director Matt Todd. “People who come to the festival every year will find that all their favourites are still here, but there are also some interesting new things that are happening as well.” And while Todd admits many may not find it that interesting, some behind-the-scenes infrastructure has helped the festival team do more with what they have. “We’re trying to modernize the way the festival is managed. As proud as we are of this festival, it kind of feels like a practice run for the following year. So when people come to the festival, we encourage them to bring forward any ideas they have or suggestions for improvement,” Todd said. There are a few new activities this year, including Yoga on the Pier, a series of paddleboarding events and a whole lot of dancing. As people are waiting for the Torchlight Parade on Saturday night, there will be Zumba instructors and squaredancers along Marine Drive, by Vidal Street, getting the crowd pumped up. The goal is to get the crowd more involved, rather than simply stand and watch, Todd said. “We really want people to … be a bit adventurous. Try a paddleboard, get on it and see what you think. It’s the same with the dancing in the street,  see page 4

but a sure sign of how price has affected travel is in the large number of foot passengers. I picked up some foot passengers at the Swartz Bay terminal on Friday night, as the last sailing came in, and was amazed at the huge volume of travellers who go by foot and get rides or catch a bus on the other end. This is particularly impressive, considering how poor the bus service to the Tsawwassen terminal is. Bus service at the Horseshoe Bay terminal in West Vancouver is considerably better. Delta has at times complained about the volumes of traffic from the ferry terminal and the port, but all that traffic is money that helps to fuel the B.C. economy. It is in the best interests of all B.C. residents to have an efficient and affordable ferry system. It also helps the province to stay better connected. BC Ferries has done many things right in recent years, but there is a need to take a closer look at fares on the major routes. The corporation also needs to consider working with the ministry of transportation to let its customers know if they are likely to get tied up due to a traffic issue. If they have reservations and then miss the ferry, that’s a major problem for both the customer and the corporation. B.C. residents, even those who rarely use the ferries, need to be sure that the provincial government is handling this issue correctly. Frank Bucholtz writes Thursdays for the Peace Arch News.

Initial findings show safety procedures were followed by crew that damaged South Surrey gas line

City, safety authority investigate gas leak Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

Preliminary investigation into a South Surrey gas leak that forced the evacuation of dozens of homes and businesses on Monday has found proper safety procedures were followed by the workers at the scene. A City of Surrey crew was digging up an old and unused six-inch water line to cap it when the bucket of the backhoe excavator they were using damaged a four-inch natural gas line at the intersection of 24 Avenue and 160 Street around 12:30 p.m. July 30. Police and fire evacuated the immediate area around the break, including the Peace Arch News offices. As the day progressed, the evacuation was expanded to include most of the businesses in the 50-acre Grandview Corners shopping district on both sides of 24 Avenue, as well as some residential homes on the fringe of the business area. Vincent Lalonde, Surrey’s general manager of engineering, said Wednesday that the workers had, as required, contacted BC One Call before they started digging to determine the location of any utility lines. Provincial gas safety regulations published on the FortisBC website require crews working near a gas line to first dig by hand to expose the line before using power tools. Lalonde says the city workers say they

followed safety procedures by marking the location of the gas line on the surface and using a gas detector to check the location. The city is investigating whether there was an error by the backhoe operator, or if the plans showing the location of the line were incorrect. “In the next few days, we’re hoping to wrap it up,” Lalonde said. FortisBC spokesperson Tracy Tang confirmed the workers had phoned the service and obtained the necessary permission from the gas utility. “They absolutely did call,” Tang told PAN. Tang said initial indications are the damage to the line was a “most unfortunate” accident. She said Fortis crews dug up the gas line near the break to crimp it and shut off the flow of gas before fixing the break. Natural gas is lighter than air, Tang explained, so it tends to disperse quickly. Fortis adds a harmless but foul-smelling substance to the normally odourless gas to help detect leaks and that was the source of the strong odour noticed in the area, Tang added. Eighty business and residential customers lost service as a result of the leak. FortisBC crews went door-to-door Monday to restore pilot lights after the break was repaired.

Police block 24 Avenue, north of the leak. A Surrey RCMP report on the incident said 35 to 40 houses were evacuated in the area of 24 to 28 Avenue and 160 tp 161A Street. The BC Safety Authority confirmed it is also investigating the leak. In an email response to a PAN query, authority communications officer Roy Siojo said no decision on a possible penalty will be made until the review is completed. He said the authority usually doesn’t impose fines unless they are dealing with obvious negligence or a repeat offender.

“We look at contributing factors, including compliance with the gas safety regulation, the use of BC One Call, excavating practices and other circumstances,” Siojo said. “Normally, we attempt to educate the excavating contractor on the first incident, and then move to a compliance order. If our attempt to educate the excavator hasn’t resulted in a change in behaviour, we can then move to a monetary penalty.” Witnesses reported hearing a loud, prolonged rushing noise from the damaged gas pipe that sounded like a jet engine. Fire crews closer to the scene called it “deafening.” Veronica Moretti was at work at Turner Geox in Grandview Corners when the leak occurred. The area was quickly overwhelmed by a foul odour, she said. “The smell of gas was way, way, way too much,” Moretti said. “We were all running around (asking) ‘what’s happening, what’s happening?’” Power to the area was cut off as a safety precaution to allow inspections of affected businesses to make sure there were no lingering pockets of gas. Electricity was restored shortly after 6 p.m. There were no reports of injuries. - with files from Kevin Diakiw and Tracy Holmes

Surrey woman pleads guilty to two counts of dog theft A co-director of A Better Life Dog Rescue has pleaded guilty to two counts of theft involving a number of dogs that have gone missing in the Lower Mainland. Louise Mary Alice Reid entered the pleas on Thursday, July 26, in Surrey Provincial Court, according to court documents. She admitted to two offences that occurred last year, one in Surrey on March 1 and the other in Coquitlam on Nov. 21.

Reid was one of six people charged in a rash of dog thefts throughout Metro Vancouver. Last November, charges were announced against Janet Olson – a White Rock resident and founder of A Better Life Dog Rescue – Michaela Schnittker, along with Reid, Christine Carter, Diane Young Hale and Natalia Borojevic. Olson faces 36 charges ranging from theft and fraud to breakand-enter in connection with

alleged offences across the Lower Mainland dating back to 2006. The allegations have not been proven in court. - Kevin Diakiw

Impaired focus Over the past five weeks, White Rock Mounties have caught 42 impaired drivers. “This number is alarmingly high,” said Staff Sgt. Lesli Roseberry.

On Sunday, the RCMP announced plans to operate intermittent “enhanced impaired driving checkpoints” within the city on random days over the remainder of the summer months. Over the past month, White Rock RCMP officers have also issued 77 traffic violations. Roseberry said the force is investing in updated radar and laser units as well as training for each general duty member who

works on the road. “Although the White Rock RCMP community policing section runs a very successful volunteer-led program focusing on educating drivers about speed in school zones and high-crash areas, we also recognize this may, at times, not be sufficient,” a written statement notes. “Sometimes, it takes a hit to the pocketbook to really hammer the point home.”

Nagel soon joined Duncan at White’s side, supporting her body weight, and both men stayed with her until emergency crews arrived. RCMP Sgt. Drew Grainger said it was an “absolute miracle” that White survived. “With the nature of her injuries, she could easily have drowned, because she wasn’t able to move,” Grainger said. He said it is possible that the truck driver didn’t even know White was hit. More than two weeks later, no one has come forward to take responsibility.

news Separate paths seen for harness, thoroughbred racing

Horse track merger shelved DENIM

Jeff Nagel Black Press

ENTER TO WIN SIMON CHANG DENIM PANT OR CAPRI

The Lower Mainland’s two horse-racing tracks – one of which is Fraser Downs in Cloverdale – will not merge. He expects one recommendation in the pending report will be to split the current horse-racing management body that runs both styles of racing. “The two industries probably need to be decoupled to pursue separate and unique business strategies,” Coleman said, adding he believes that may be the formula for long-term sustainability. That would see thoroughbred and standardbred racing allocated separate funding sources to run their individual breeding and other operations, according to business models that fit their needs. “They have a different betting group and different clienteles,” he added. Hastings Park has done well attracting upscale gamblers and urbanites to the races, in part with concerts and other attrac-

tions, he said. In contrast, he said attendance for harness racing at Cloverdale’s Fraser Downs is flat and needs to focus on offering a more familyoriented experience. Coleman suggested another change could allow Great Canadian to sell off one or both of the horse-racing operations. “It comes down to the track operator – whether they want to be in the business,” he said. “They may want to have the horse racing side separate from them because it’s not their core business.” Harness Racing BC CEO Doug McCallum is upbeat about the future of the standardbred racing, adding more horses are being bred and wagering is up this year – particularly online. “We’re in pretty good shape this year and going into next year,” he said, adding a return to a longer racing season has helped.

The City of Vancouver has agreed to a two-year extension of Great Canadian Gaming’s Hastings Racecourse, putting to rest for now talk that the Lower Mainland’s two horse racing tracks might merge at a single site. Vancouver council’s delay in signing a deal to keep racing at Hastings Park and its goal of tripling green space in the park had fueled speculation that thoroughbred horse racing there might soon be relocated to Cloverdale’s Fraser Downs, which hosts standardbred harness racing. “This extension allows our company to work closely with the City of Vancouver regarding longterm operations at Hastings Racecourse without being concerned with a lease deadline looming,” Great Canadian spokesman Howard Blank said. Rich Coleman, the provincial minister responsible for gaming, said in an earlier interview he expects both tracks will continue separate operations. And he said a new five-year strategic plan for the horse-racing industry set for release soon will likely call for significant changes but continued operation of both tracks. “I think the recommendation at the end of the day may be to see if they can sustain themselves at their individual tracks,” Coleman said. Running both racing styles at one dual-circuit track isn’t impossible, but Coleman said it will be off the table as long as separate tracks have secure homes and are viable. Consolidating tracks in Surrey at Cloverdale would require moving barns to make room for an expanded racing footprint. “It’s not cheap – it’s probably in the $10-million range,” Coleman said. “But if you’re going to sustain an industry and the 7,000 overall jobs it supports, you’d probably make that investment – if you had a good business plan to back it up.”

Investigation under pressure

I

f the natural-gas leak at Grandview Corners on Monday taught us nothing else, it showed us just how much pressure the contents of underground pipes – perilously close to offices stores and habitations – are under. As fumes shot into the air, there was little to see except a slight cloudy haze. But the noise was something else – a continuous roar like the sound of an aircraft’s jet engines warming up. Downwind, the familiar gas smell was well-nigh unbearable. And hundreds of cubic metres of the potentially explosive substance were being expelled – violently – into the atmosphere every minute in the immediate vicinity of the ruptured pipe, at 160 Street and 24 Avenue. For those close to the scene – including Peace Arch News reporters who ventured outside before the order to evacuate our office building was issued by Surrey Fire Service – it didn’t take much imagination to picture the rapidly escaping gas blowing up with a force that would have shattered windows and overturned police cars and fire trucks. What takes a little more for witnesses to get their heads around is why it took Fortis close to three hours to shut the gas off after the leak was reported at around 12:30 p.m. An unimaginable amount of gas must have spewed into the atmosphere by then. And no one, as yet, has downplayed the potential for disaster had a stray spark ignited it. As RCMP Sgt. Drew Grainger noted at the scene, the leak was “about as big as it gets.” While Surrey fire and RCMP units can’t be faulted for their prompt reaction and decisionmaking, one wonders what would have happened if the gas had ignited before the leak was contained. Had injury, deaths or even extensive property damage resulted, what would the situation have been as far as legal liability was concerned? And how did the gas pipe get broken in the first place? The City of Surrey crew working on capping off a water main at the corner have been adamant that they were following procedures, and had called ahead for the location of gas lines before using a backhoe to scrape away paving. Yet the backhoe still managed to rupture the pipe. While we can accept that accidents can happen, it’s scarcely a comforting thought in a potentially disastrous situation like this. In the interests of future safety, investigation of the incident cannot let it go at that. Given the hazards involved, it is incumbent on those involved to find out what went wrong, and just what can be done to prevent a similar, and possibly much worse, scenario from occurring.

Penny who encouraged me to make my first donation about 10 years ago. I thought about it for a while, asking myself “why should I donate blood?” Have I ever been a recipient of donated blood before? No. Has there ever been someone close to me who suddenly needed a blood donation? No. Was it because there was a sudden shortage of blood in Canada? No. I decided to do it because I can. Simple as that. Because I am eligible to donate blood. I don’t know how many people I’ve helped by donating blood, but I do know that the process is not that painful. Heck, even the needle isn’t that bad. And to make it more pleasant, every single person who is there to take your blood, ask you questions and walk with you over to the cookie station will thank you for coming in that day. Guaranteed. I know many people who can’t donate blood for various reasons – they’ve lived in, or visited, foreign countries that are on the no-go list, they have medical issues, or (sad and discriminatory as it may be) they’re a homosexual male. I donate because I know there is always a need for blood. I donate because I know my blood will in fact be used, never wasted. I donate blood because I want to. But to me, the number one reason you should donate blood is if you’re eligible. The number two reason is for the free cookies. If you are eligible, think about it. You could save many people’s lives.

Progress rings in my ears Editor: I live on Winter Street, directly across from a construction site – 30 condominiums in the making on a small lot in White Rock. The crew starts at 7 a.m. and, at times, works past 6 p.m., Monday to Friday, and four hours on Saturday and Sunday. City hall tells me construction is permitted from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday to Friday. What a pity Mayor Wayne Baldwin et al don’t have the opportunity to listen to construction noise in excess of 11 hours at a stretch. If they did, I am certain the noisepollution bylaw would be amended forthwith. Is city hall going to lower my taxes since I will no longer have a view, or is this considered to be progress unsuccessfully disguised as greed? Helen Russell, White Rock

Appreciation of strangers

fences, is justifying his net zero to avoid a European crisis here, neglecting to mention its cause – greedy financiers, unregulated banks and unsupported economies. In my mind, the only thing that may sweeten this bitter year would be if the minister resigned, retired or got recalled. Most teachers will continue to be disgusted by the disrespect they and their students have been shown. The only consolation is that we can now fight another day in our schools without fear. The concessions are off. A big thank you to the thousands of teachers who stuck to the action plan and to the parents who supported us. They understood this was the only legal way left to be heard. One thing is crystal clear: volunteering is just that. If we wish it otherwise, it may be time to follow suit with American and Finnish systems paying extra for those wonderful extracurricular activities throughout the day and after school – which brings us back to whether or not British Columbians want a well-funded education system. Do you want your government to support successful, happy, well-educated citizens, or do you

want low-paying jobs and poverty, allowing corporate elites to get wealthier and class disparity to become wider? I urge voters to join teachers next spring and speak out for public education, or, as Plato said, “I shall assume that your silence gives consent” to that which is broken. Neovi Patsicakis, Surrey

Review Crown investments Editor: Once again a major Crown corporation reports a significant loss and blames its poor investment performance. In June, WorkSafeBC – what a wonderful ‘spin’ name – reported a drop of over $500 million in 2011’s investment income. The chairman, George Morfitt, said that their investments fluctuate by up to $3,000 million per year “because of the valuation of our investments” and that WorkSafeBC has about $12 billion in assets. These statements do not make any sense unless this public body is

speculating in a big way – a 25 per cent fluctuation in value. Although Morfitt said that they have only a one per cent exposure to Europe, the European financial crisis has still affected stocks worldwide. This would have no bearing on investment income if these massive public funds had been invested in first-rate companies – large cap, market dominators – that consistently pay out real cash every year in the form of dividends. Just what types of investments have been made to produce these huge losses? If my financial advisors had produced this type of performance, I would be changing them very quickly. There appears to be an urgent need to have the investment performance of our Crown corporations reviewed every year by an independent group of experts – and the details made public – to see if we are getting good value. As Morfitt was previously a B.C. auditor general who “oversaw accountability initiatives in the public sector,” I am sure he would welcome this greater level of transparency. Herb Spencer, Surrey

Editor: A very big thank you to all the strangers who came to the aid of my mother – especially the person who phoned for the ambulance. Mother tripped on uneven sidewalk and fell head first with no serious injuries except for a bruised nose. Again, thank you for your concern. J. B. Latham, Surrey

Education vs. class disparity Editor: The fight for public education is not over! No, I am not happy with the ratified agreement, but I believe teachers had no alternative. For many, voting was a struggle. To quote a colleague, “This is not a deal! It’s a kick in the pants.” Give up $30 million on a threeday walkout for students and fair wages and get back $2.6 million for orthotics? Large classes, split grades with many special needs, a reduction in support, fewer teachers; that is what we lost – and not even a costof-living adjustment. Those millions from our strike went into the so-called Learning Improvement Fund which often translated into hiring more SEAs. Not that they are not needed, but teachers should not have to pay for them, as this fund should have been tenfold and fully targeted to employ the specialists we are so lacking – the librarians, psychologists, counselors, speech and language pathologists, and learning-support teachers. So, back to the courts we must go. The minister, who lavishes praise on the parties and wants to mend

Letter-writer Jim Hunter says he is bothered by the abundance of misunderstanding around pesticides.

Pesticide misinformation tiring Editor: Re: Guess most of us are radicals, May 24 letters. Okay, I’ve had it. I’m coming out of the closet. I am a pesticide applicator in my trade as an arbourist, and have been for about 40 years. I’m coming out now because I’m sick and tired of the misinformation coming out regarding pesticides. When I see phrases such as “exposed to chemical pesticides, herbicides, and insecticides” it bothers me, because it shows me that the writer is not informed about how various products are used, carefully, by professionals. A pesticide is defined as “any chemical which is used to control any unwanted organisms harmful to cultivated plants or animals.” By this definition, vinegar poured on a weed is an herbicide. Common table salt poured on a slug is a mollusticide. Dish soap applied to an aphid is an insecticide and baking soda applied to a rose is a fungicide. All of these common household items, when used in these conditions, are pesticides. Granted, there are a multitude of pesticides out there that are not as benign

as the ones I’ve mentioned, but I’d like anyone claiming that “pesticides” cause such and such nasty disease, to please remind yourself that not all pesticides used today are the awful chemical concoctions you think they are. You would be surprised at how much of an environmentalist myself, and other pesticide applicators can be. As a pesticide applicator, I feel my job is to find a way to control a pest in the safest and most effective manner, and I’m sure I’m not the only one in my field who feels this way. If and when chemicals are used, it may be because it is the most effective way to deal with the pest, or the last option when all others have been exhausted. Also, regarding the photo that ran with on the letters page on May 24, front-and-centre is Warfarin, a rat killer, which is also commonly prescribed by doctors as a blood thinner. When it is applied in high concentrations it kills rats, but when used in prescribed doses it saves lives. Something to think about. Jim Hunter, White Rock

news Some info searches tap PRIME police database

Privacy concerns for record check trend Jeff Nagel Black Press

B.C. Privacy Commisioner Elizabeth Denham is warning that both the provincial government and private sector employers are making too much use of criminal record checks. She issued an investigation report recommending the province limit its use of checks, which are used to vet prospective employees and re-screen some existing staff. “I’m concerned about the societal trend towards increased employmentrelated records checks without clear evidence as to their benefit in safeguarding the workplace,” Denham said. Record checks are important tools in hiring staff who will work with vulnerable adults or children, or wield great spending or data-access powers, she said. But in some cases, she said, government conducts ongoing or multiple criminal record checks on the same employee, adding that shouldn’t happen without a justifiable reason. Denham also wants the province to report publicly on its use of record checks. B.C. Civil Liberties Association executive director David Eby said the problem is not just criminal record checks but broader police information checks that also pull in data recorded

in the PRIME-BC police database. Most of the B.C. population is in PRIME – often as witnesses, 911 callers or other contacts in a police investigation – and some are recorded as having had “adverse contact” with police. That designation can spell rejection for a job applicant or prospective tenant who agrees to a request for a police information search, Eby said. “It’s completely at the discretion of the police and it’s incredibly overused,” Eby said of the “adverse contact” designation in the database. The box can be checked for someone who was insistent on their rights in dealing with police, he said, or even in cases where someone attempts suicide and their family or friends call police. “This database was never meant to be used to prevent people from getting apartments or job opportunities,” Eby said. “But it’s become a database for employers, landlords and schools. It’s got this creeping functionality to it that needs to be reined in.” The over-reliance on checks is also unfortunate in cases where people who do have a criminal past are now trying to change their path, he added. “Often people have stopped using drugs and are trying to clean up their lives and get back to work,” he said. “They’re being frustrated by this.”

The B.C. Coroners Service has issued a warning about the possible dangers of using co-sleepers, a type of crib that attaches to the side of an adult bed. The warning, issued last month, was prompted by the death last year of a 10-month-old Surrey girl who rolled over and became trapped between the crib and adult bed and suffocated. In April 2011, the most common type of co-sleeper â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Original and Universal Co-Sleeperâ&#x20AC;? manufactured by California-based Armâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Reach Concepts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was recalled by Heath Canada. But while they are no longer available in Canadian stores, they can still be found for sale privately online, at garage sales, and in the U.S. In its recall notice, Health Canada specifically noted that an infant sleeping in a co-sleeper â&#x20AC;&#x153;can become entrapped between

T3 RECOVERY MATTRESSES

Ironman Mattresses with Celiant® and Cellitex® have been proven in clinical test to reduce pain, increase oxygen levels, and help balance body temperature. Each of these results can have added benefits, including faster healing, increased performance, better quality sleep and improved overall wellness; all of which can help alleviate the symptoms of arthritis and peripheral vascular disease often associated with diabetes. The key to Celliant® lies in its ability to absorb and store electromagnetic (energy) emissions from the human body and release them where they are reabsorbed into the skin and deep muscle tissue, they act as catalysts for natural, biological processes resulting in enhanced oxygen levels, and more balanced body temperature during sleep, rest or physical activity.

Explanatory hypotheses suggest that trees create an ambience which encourages residents to spend time outdoors and so there are more â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;eyesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on the street; well-tended trees indicate to would-be felons and others that local residents care for their environment and are aware of happenings there; and it is suggested that trees exert a calming influence which relieves fatigue and stress, causes of irritability which itself is a precursor of violence. There may be other explanations but this research provides yet another strong argument for strict enforcement of powerful tree preservation bylaws in all municipalities.

lifestyles Teen travelled from the Northwest Territories

Visitor comes a long way Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

When a homesick Hannah Taneton called her grandfather “Jim-Jim” from South Surrey, he encouraged her to hang in there. She would regret it if she ended her educational visit early, he warned. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” her grandfather said. “We miss you, too, but home will always be here, no matter what.” It was exactly what the 16-yearold high school student needed to hear. On Sunday (July 29) a week after she phoned home, Taneton was still with her host family in South Surrey and confident she would be there until the scheduled end of her visit, Aug. 8. She says the people she is staying with (a South Surrey family who asked not to be named) have been very nice to her, but Metro Vancouver is “very different” from her home, the small Northwest Territories (NWT) village of Deline, a community of about 600 people

Dan Ferguson photo

Hannah Taneton is from Deline. located on the shore of Great Bear Lake over 500 kilometres northwest of Yellowknife. People here are more reserved than they are in her hometown, she says. “Back home, everyone is all nice and says hi.” The soft-spoken teenager grew up in a small, one-storey house with a huge back yard, the opposite of the big two-storey house and relatively tiny back yard that she has been living in since July 9. Taneton says the food her host family provides is nice, but noth-

ing like the meals her mom makes. For instance, seafood in Deline usually means trout. In B.C., it is salmon. Taneton’s trip was sponsored by a small charity called Northern Youth Abroad that runs an experiential education program for young people living in Nunavut and the Northwest Territories. It is designed to provide northern youth with hands-on job skills with a focus on leadership and confidence. Participants can earn up to nine high school credits. They are required to work a minimum of 35 hours a week in the community they are visiting. Taneton has been working at a local youth camp, a trip that requires her to travel by transit bus and make two connections – very different from her hometown where there is not so much as a taxi service. Now that her moment of culture shock has come and gone, Taneton agrees with her grandfather that it has been a rare opportunity to see the world beyond the boundaries of her home community.

Long Weekend

Boost for Sourcesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; White Rock/South Surrey facility

Auction to benefit local food bank Drafting boards, furniture and heavy-duty tools are among dozens of items going on the (silent) auction block this month, at an event to benefit Sourcesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; White Rock/South Surrey Food Bank. Katrina Hapay, manager of the White Rock/South Surrey U-Lock Mini-storage facility, said people have donated â&#x20AC;&#x153;all kinds of stuff â&#x20AC;? for the cause. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got everything from furniture to tools,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good way for people to donate stuff when they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where else to go.â&#x20AC;? Items so far have been donated by existing tenants, one of whom was downsizing for a move.

Hapay said the business made the food bank its charity of choice about a year ago, donating proceeds of a raffle along with other items in the hopes of easing the journey of those who rely on the facility. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s close to home, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of people that depend on it,â&#x20AC;? she said. Hapay said the goal is to hold similar auctions every three to four months. Anyone with good-condition items to donate is welcome to bring them by 15028 32 Ave. during business hours, as the items must be approved first. The auction itself is set for 10-11:30 a.m. on Aug. 11. For more information, call 604-5367988.

White Rock’s very own author, lawyer and judge writes West Coast mystery Glen Ba Baker graduated from tthe University of British Columbia with a B.A. and a L.L.B. was He articled, ar called to the bar, and admitted as a solicitor in 1956. solic He practiced law in British Columbia Brit with offices in wi White Rock and W Vancouver. He Va was a General w Practitioner P dealing with d people’s hopes, problems and sadness’s. problem Glen was b Gl born iin Vi Victoria t i b but grew up in North Vancouver having the Fraser Valley with all its towns, municipalities and cities to enjoy and explore, which he did. In fact having graduated from North Vancouver High in the spring of 1948 he and friends celebrated that graduation filling sandbags at Chilliwack to help thwart the water of the Fraser River that had

breached dykes in the Fraser Valley flooding large portions of farmland, businesses and residential property. He enjoyed summer jobs when school was out and worked at them till graduation from U.B.C. These jobs were such that he learned much about people, many that have given parts of themselves through his imagination to his books. The setting of his first book “Birds Boats and the Border” is not in some city far away but in the southwest corner of the Fraser Valley at Westham Island located in the south arm of the Fraser River near Ladner. The Reifel Bird Sanctuary is on the North side of the book island and was visited quite often by our author. The first book of his up and coming west coast trilogy starts with a blue butter box. The contents of the blue butter box puzzles the executor, a son of the deceased beachcomber. He turns it over to the Judge Stan a friend, to chase down as Stan has a known curiosity. The Judge does so with the help of his clerk Ingrid and her boyfriend George. They find it more complex than first thought and that brings them into contact with some very nasty men but also

with the Westham Island Gun Club, the white geese, the R.C.M.P. and American authorities. Sorry, you’ll have to read his book of fiction and travel with his characters to find out more. P.S. He was appointed to the Provincial Court on September the 18 of 1980, and presided primarily in the Fraser Area even though he had jurisdiction throughout the Province of B.C. Don’t let the title fool you. The book is not about Glen’s interests or hobbies in his retirement. It is a mystery story about boats (one in particular) a border (Canada U.S.) prohibition related matters (sorry, you’ll have to read it to find out about the birds) and features a Provincial Court Judge, his clerk, an R.C.M.P. officer and other characters, some good and some really nasty. Enjoy this one – two more to come! ~ Denis Creighton (retired BC lawyer)

Gone to the dogs The All Breed Championship Dog Show brought in 340 dogs and their owners to the Hazelmere RV Park and Campground last weekend. The three-day event drew people from all over B.C. and the United States to show off their prized pooches. Clockwise from top left: owners parade their Great Danes for judges; three-year-old Great Dane, Abu, with his owner; Airedale Terrier, Star, is groomed by Suzie Emerson; Ashlee Kelly gets her standard poodle, Sawyer, ready for the show.

GOLF

Keep the game stress-free They say that playing golf is a great way to build character, and that you don’t really know someone until you have played 18 holes with them. That’s because golf can be particularly frustrating at times. When you get mad, your muscles tighten and you can no longer make your swings smoothly. This can cause one bad swing to

turn into another, and another. And don’t think you’re successfully masking your frustration. When people become stressed they tend to stop talking and their attitude can turn negative. This will only make their partners feel uncomfortable and will ruin everyone’s day. Once a swing is made – whether good or bad – there’s nothing you can

do about it. Getting angry won’t cause the ball to suddenly come flying out of the sand trap. If you feel yourself becoming frustrated, nip it in the bud. Take a deep breath and take a few practice swings. Keeping score is a big part of the game, but it’s not the only thing. After all, didn’t you take up golfing to enjoy yourself?

Peninsula artists to perform, as well as big-name talent

Sea Fest to feature homegrown talent Alex Browne

I

Arts Reporter

t’s not just about big name acts or who is headlining the ‘main stage’. That’s the word from Jim Black, the White Rock-raised guitarist, music promoter, Star Captains leader and co-ordinator of musical acts for Spirit of the Sea Festival 2012. There’s going to be a wealth of great musical entertainment around White Rock and Semiahmoo Park during the festival this long weekend, he said, but music lovers need to check out all of the venues – the Spirit Stage at Semiahmoo Park, the East Stage at East Beach and the West Stage at West Beach – to catch this year’s intriguing mix of known acts and lesser-known, but just as noteworthy, talents. “We’re trying to get away from the idea of a main stage,” he said. “They’re all great stages.” Evidence of that is the fact that Black has opted to have his own band, the Star Captains – masters of technologically-updated Not that there won’t be some ‘70s-style soul – play the Spirit readily identifiable names for local Stage as the concluding act of the music lovers. festival (Monday, 7 p.m.).

But there are also a wide range of acts that, while not as wellknown on the local scene, are well worth a look and listen. Bands such as The Quickness (Saturday, 6 p.m., West Stage), for example, or Emily Chambers’ Champagne Republic (Saturday, 7 p.m., East Stage), No Expectations (Saturday, 8 p.m., Spirit Stage), Bastard Skinny (Sunday, 6 p.m., East Stage), Trademark!

Rising young artists showcasing their talents include Brie Flemington and Ben Dunnill, featured on Saturday at the Spirit Stage at 4 p.m. and 4:45 p.m.; Zoey Maclean and Sarah Gawthorp, on Sunday at the Spirit Stage at 4 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. respectively; and such featured performers, Monday at the Spirit Stage, as Giuseppe Pietraroia (11 a.m.), Jermaine Peguda (1 p.m.), and B.J. Block and Dawn Pemberton (5 p.m.). The Peninsula Arts Foundation will showcase some of its grant recipients 3-5 p.m. Saturday at the East Stage, including Dunnill, the Surrey Youth Theatre Company, Colleen Donnelly and James Meger. “The foundation is great,” Black said. “They’ve been supporting many of us in the arts for so many years – our plan is to start a bursary with them next year.” Black, who will also play a set of pop tunes at the end of the pier on Sunday in honour of his grandfather – who first settled in White Rock in the late `40s and his father, who was harbourmaster for most of the `70s – feels a strong sense of commitment to his home community, and a desire to nurture new generations of musical performers. “I feel blessed to be able to give people a start and get some of these kids playing,” Black said. “One example is a kid I saw performing at a talent contest recently – Richard Tichelman. He’s only around 10 or so, a singer who works with backing tracks, but he sings really well. “I booked him and I thought, ‘I’m going to learn some of his material from the tracks and go and play with him.’ “That will really give him encouragement, to know that the organizer of the music for the festival is willing to come and play for him – that explains what we’re trying to do here.”

arts & entertainment Craig Mutch to create sculptures at Sea Festival

Sand sculptor returns to fest Memorable. Inclusive. Sustainable. | Celebrating 25 years

Alex Browne Arts Reporter

A returning feature of the Spirit of the Sea Festival is the work of internationally-known sand and ice sculptor Craig Mutch. This year he has secured a spot on the plaza just in front of White Rock Museum and Archives for his latest extravaganza – a salute to ‘Lost Cultures’ and their surviving monuments, such as pyramids in Egypt and South America and the great heads of Easter Island – that offers an ideal subject for sand sculpture. At press time Mutch and fellow sculptor Delayne Corbett were beginning the process of sculpting basic forms in the 14 tons of sand trucked in for the event, and Spirit of the Sea visitors will be able to watch them finishing the details of the complex design during the festival itself. “People love to see you at work,” the widely-experienced and well-travelled sculptor said. “I chose these ancient cultures because of the diversity, ethnically and culturally, in White Rock and South Surrey.” Experience carving a Hindu god as part of last year’s sculpture showed him there was potential in a multi-cultural subject promoting world peace, he said.

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.

Doing battle with a brush

Chico Announces... We Have A Winner!

Brenda Anderson Black Press

Re-creating some of Mother Nature’s best work – whether on canvas, paper or wood – is no small feat. But 50 B.C. artists – including the Semiahmoo Peninsula’s Mike Svob – have jumped at the challenge, picking up their brushes, pencils, sketch pads and carving tools and heading north to depict what are arguably some of the world’s most picturesque land and seascapes. And in the process, they’re hoping to help protect them for future generations. Svob, a White Rock resident, was among those scattered along B.C.’s north coast, from Calvert Island to Klemtu and Hartley Bay at the end of June. An impressionist/muralist, Svob – along with Langley trio, Janice Robertson, her husband, painter Alan Wylie and Murray Phillips – was invited to participate in Artists For an Oil-Free Coast, a project conceived and organized by Mark Hobson of the Raincoast Conservation Foundation to draw attention to the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline. If approved, the pipeline will carry bitumen from the Northern Alberta tar sands to port at Kitimat to be loaded onto tankers and shipped to Asia. The problem, say the plan’s critics, is that the project would benefit only Alberta, while B.C. would bear all the risk. And the risk, they fear, is considerable. “They’re very concerned about the Northern Gateway Pipeline. They fear it’s only a matter of time before there’s a massive oil spill,” said Robertson, who along with Wylie, Phillips and Svob, spent five days in late June on Calvert Island. “When you are an artist, you think, ‘What can I do?’” But with such a pristine and fragile ecosystem at risk, she knew she had to try. The group spent five days sketching and painting alongside several other artists, including

It’s like putting a BandAid on an amputated limb.” For Robertson, the trip was an opportunity to really ponder what is at stake. “This was interesting for me because I’m not a political person,” said the artist. “There’s no big agenda.

But beyond the straight biological loss, this (wilderness) is iconic of B.C. and Canada,” said Hobson. It is what B.C. is known for throughout the world, he said, comparing its global status to the Great Pyramids at Giza. “Nobody in Egypt would consider chopping them down

You won’t notice anything immediately following treatment. However, as your nail grows out, the new nail growth should be clear. Toe nails grow slowly –especially nails infected with fungus. So, it may take 6-12 months for your toenail to clear. Will the fungus come back? Reinfection with toenail fungus may be acquired anywhere from your environment, for example, in damp areas such as public swimming pools. Consult with your healthcare professional to understand how to prevent toenail fungus from reoccurring. When can I apply nail polish? While it is important to remove nail polish, decoration and jewelry prior to treatment, you can reapply nail polish 24 hours after treatment. How does GenesisPlus compare to other toenail fungus treatments? Traditional treatments such as nail trimming, topical medicine, oral medicine or nail removal have significant drawbacks. Nail trimming doesn’t treat the fungus. Topical medicines need to be applied for 12 months and have a low success rate. Oral medicines are taken for 3 months but can cause liver or kidney problems. I’ve had toenail fungus for over 15 years and risking liver damage with prescription drugs wasn’t an option for me. My podiatrist used the GenesisPlus laser on my left big toe. Eight months later the toe looks like new.

Questions you should ask about travel insurance. The summer sees more people travelling over the border, making the most of the warm weather and school vacation. It’s also the time many discover they’re under-insured when they incur steep unexpected medical expenses in a foreign country. These can, however, be easily avoided by asking a few pertinent questions before you go. Do I need travel insurance for a quick trip across the border? Accidents are just as likely to happen on a day trip as any other day at home or at work. Driving on unknown routes could potentially increase the odds. As always, it’s best to ensure you’re fully covered. Does BC Medical Services Plan cover everything? Provincial health care is unlikely to cover all of your medical expenses incurred out of province, or overseas. In fact, the Canadian government recommends that travellers purchase travel insurance when leaving the country because of the extremely high cost of medical care outside of Canada. My credit card automatically covers that, right? You may not have adequate coverage through your credit card plan. Check to ensure you have medical coverage, not

just travel accident insurance as there is a difference, and that the medical coverage meets your needs. Is my work travel insurance plan adequate for this trip? Many plans offered through employers lack certain options, like trip cancellation or interruption insurance. You can purchase these on their own to complement your company’s travel insurance. Also, some employee plans only cover the employee, so if you are travelling with your family, ask your insurance specialist about a family travel insurance plan, for both medical or trip cancellation/ interruption insurance. Do your research and ask the right questions. Visit a BCAA location and speak with an insurance specialist who will be happy to advise you, or visit bcaa.com/travelinsurance before you go and make the most of your trip.

our years ago at the Summer Olympics in Beijing, weightlifter Christine Girard missed the podium by three kilograms. And Tuesday in London, it looked like the 27-year-old – who moved to White Rock from Quebec four years ago – might again suffer the same oh-so-close fate. Girard, who moved to B.C. when her husband, an RCMP officer, was transferred here, sat in fourth place after the snatch portion of the women’s 63-kg competition, but vaulted onto the podium after she lifted 133 kg in her second attempt in the clean-and-jerk.

White Rock pitcher Zac Campagne pitches Sunday against the Langley Blaze. White Rock’s Joey Gladman had three hits – including two doubles – three runs and two runs-batted in, while Dylan Yeager also had a double and two runs scored. In the second game, the Tritons scored runs in all five innings – including a seven-run fourth frame – until the game was called on account of the mercy rule. White Rock pounded 11 hits in the win, led by Gladman, who had three and a game-high six RBI, and Daniel Cassino,

who had three hits, four runs scored and three RBI. Yeager also went 1-for-2 with two walks, three runs scored and one RBI. The Tritons were in action Wednesday – after press deadline – playing the Abby Cardinals at Delair Park in Abbotsford. This weekend, White Rock travels to Nanaimo for two games against the Junior Pirates, and Sunday stops in North Vancouver for a doubleheader against the Twins.

Despite winning just one of four ball games on the weekend, the White Rock Junior Tritons sit comfortably in a playoff position with a week left in the regular season. The U16 team is 21-18, good for fourth in the BC Junior Premier Baseball League standings. The top eight clubs in the 12-team league make playoffs, which are to run Aug. 9-12 in Whalley. Currently, the fifth-seed Victoria Junior Mariners line up as the Tritons’ firstround playoff opponent, though there are enough teams bunched close together in the standings – including the third-place Abbotsford Cardinals and the Vancouver Cannons and Coquitlam Redlegs, fifth and sixth respectively – that the playoff order can easily change by the close of the regular-season schedule. Last weekend, White Rock split a doubleheader with the Victoria Junior Eagles Saturday at Victoria’s Lambrick Park – losing the first game 14-11 before rebounding with a lopsided 20-1 win in Game 2. On Sunday, the Tritons hosted the Langley Blaze, where they fell 8-7 and 18-2 to the first-place visitors, who have lost just eight of 43 games this season. In the first game against Victoria, the Tritons fell behind 8-4 by the third inning, before rallying in the last half of the game, scoring two runs in the fourth and fifth and seventh innings, and adding a single run in the sixth. Victoria, however, plated six runs in a big fifth inning to keep the lead intact.

Adam Hadwin missed the cut at last weekend’s RBC Canadian Open, after shooting a four-over 74 in the second round.

Tough round knocks Morgan Creek golfer out of PGA tourney

Hadwin misses Open cut Dan Kinvig Black Press

After a promising start, Adam Hadwin saw his hopes of another run at the RBC Canadian Open title evaporate during a disastrous second round. The 24-year-old pro golfer from Abbotsford – who now plays out of South Surrey’s Morgan Creek Golf and Country Club where his father, Gerry, is the teaching pro – was on target during Thursday’s opening round at

the Hamilton Golf and Country Club, firing a solid four-under 66 that included seven birdies. That left him tied for 12th, four back of the lead, and on track to win another Rivermead Trophy. The Rivermead is emblematic of the top Canadian at the national championship, and Hadwin had won it the previous two years, including a memorable fourthplace finish in 2011. But on Friday, Hadwin struggled to a four-over 74, making

three birdies but also registering three bogeys and two doublebogeys. That left him at even par for the tournament, and he missed the cut by one stroke. Fellow Abbotsford native Nick Taylor had a rough go of it at the Canadian Open – he carded rounds of 75 and 74 to miss the cut by 10. The tournament was won by American Scott Piercy, who finished with a four-round score of 17-under par.

Nov. 12, 1922 - July 20, 2012

After a long life, well-lived and well-loved, Lora Saunders passed away peacefully on July 20, 2012 at age 89 in White Rock, B.C. She was the second of five children born to Amos and Nellie Hartwell, in her great-grandparents’ farmhouse in Hatley, Que. She grew up in a pastoral setting and was an excellent student, earning the province’s second highest academic marks in her senior high school year. She worked as a stenographer for Rogers Sugar, Windsor Salt, and CIL Paint, before enlisting in the Women’s Royal Naval Service (WRENS) in World War Two, where she served for 2½ years in the Identification Unit. In Halifax, she met and married Navy gunner Arthur Saunders and, when the war was over, he brought her to Vancouver. In 1951, they moved to White Rock, raising five children and welcoming many others to the old house on the hill. Predeceased by Art in 1989, she is survived and lovingly remembered by her children Marilyn, Rick (Sheila), Randy (Susan), Daniel (Nonie), Tom (Pamela) - nine grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren. She was one of the kindest, gentlest, most-caring people, and we were incredibly blessed to have her as long as we did. Her gentle influence was felt by all who knew her. Special thanks to the wonderful extended-care staff at Weatherby and Dr. Al Hogg Pavilions. A Celebration of Life will be held Aug. 11, 2-4 p.m., at Hazelmere RV Park, 188438th Ave., Surrey.

September 28, 1922 - July 28, 2012 Charles Eric du Plessis died at White Rock, British Columbia, on July 28, 2012. Born September 28, 1922 in Johannesburg, Transvaal, in the (then) Union of South Africa, only son of the late Eric Norman du Plessis and Lillia Mary du Plessis (nee Kohl). Predeceased by his wife Aileen du Plessis (nee Leonard), in 2006, and his son Simon Peter du Plessis in 1960. Survived by children, Mark Anthony du Plessis, Julienne Mary (Brett) Cryderman, Damian Rex du Plessis and Adrian John du Plessis and grandchildren Cole Jordan Cryderman, Tyson Cain Cryderman and Natalie Jane Cryderman. Survived also by his second wife, Alison von Hammerstein (nee Prim), her daughters Deborah (Bill) Stewart, Amanda (Manou) Harby and Levecke (Charles) Mas, her grandchildren Erin (Chris) Peterson (daughter Sydney), Adam (Erin) Peterson (sons Ethan and Dylan), Leila and Emma Mas. He was educated in Johannesburg at Rosettenville Elementary School and Forest High School. Upon matriculation he began working at Johannesburg Municipal Hall in 1938. He volunteered for service during World War II with the Defence Forces of the Union of South Africa and from 1939 to 1945 served meritoriously in South, Central and East Africa, Egypt, Libya, Palestine (then) and Syria, with the Transvaal Scottish Regiment (Pte.), Motorized Transport (Pte.), South African Tank Corps (Sgt.) – including a tour as instructor at the British and Allied Tank School in Alexandria (Egypt), and with the South African Air Force as an Observer/ Navigator (2nd Lt.) on transports and bombers. From 1945 to 1960 he studied, with interruptions, at the University of the Witwatersrand, University of London and University of British Columbia. Associate of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries in 1960. On October 2, 1948, he was married in Johannesburg to Aileen Leonard. With his wife and eldest son Mark, he left South Africa in 1953, first to England and then to Canada in 1954, settling in Vancouver, where they arrived on July 7, 1954. He worked first as a bookkeeper and auditor for J.H. Todd & Sons Ltd. from 1954 to 1959, when that company maintained a string of fish canneries along the coast of British Columbia, all of which he visited. After a brief stint as accountant in the electronics industry, in 1961 he joined Smith, Davidson & Lecky Wholesale Paper Merchants and Manufacturing Stationers as Chief Accountant. At his retirement from that company in 1978, he was Corporate Secretary, Chief Financial Officer and Director of Smith, Davidson & Lecky, Adanac Paper Converters Ltd. and their associated companies. Most of his retirement years were spent in South Surrey and White Rock, caring for his and Aileen’s Pomeranians, taking long walks in Crescent Park and Crescent Beach. Aileen’s death, following their 58th wedding anniversary, caused him great sorrow. In 2007 he married Alison and they enjoyed trips to Vancouver Island and Washington State and walks around White Rock, until Alison went into care in early 2011. No service by request. Heartfelt thanks to the staff of Peace Arch District Hospital who took such good care of him during his final illness.
