Highway 99 interchange in design stage, as 24 Avenue junction remains on backburner

Ministry moves on 16 Avenue on-ramp Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

Preliminary work on one of two longdiscussed highway interchanges in South Surrey is underway. While the design process that will produce a four-way interchange at Highway 99 and 16 Avenue has begun, a long-sought-after exchange linking 24 Avenue to the highway remains on the backburner.

The 16 Avenue plan was revealed in a letter delivered last week to residents of the Cherry Brook mobile home park at 16 Avenue and 162 Street. “The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure and the City of Surrey are pleased to announce that they will be jointly funding a new interchange at Highway 99 and 16th Avenue,” said the message dated Sept. 14 and signed by Jay Porter, senior project manager

with the provincial ministry. “The project will provide improved access to Highway 99 and the community of South Surrey/White Rock and includes on and off ramps in all four quadrants of the intersection.” Porter adds that the project is currently at “the preliminary design stage” and promised there will be consultation with affected residents.

The letter came with a map showing the southbound off-ramp running behind the mobile home park. It was a surprise to Cherry Brook resident Pat O’Connor, whose backyard will border the off-ramp. “I’m a bit concerned it will devalue the property,” O’Connor said. “Can you imagine the traffic on 16th? It’s going to be awful.” › see page 2

Appeal denied

He ruined my life: beating victim Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

The appeal of a man who beat his cousin with a pipe and left him for dead at the side of a South Surrey road nine years ago was dismissed in short order Thursday. In a brief oral judgment, B.C. Court of Appeal Justice David Frankel told Daniel Lewis Allan he “can see no basis” to dispute the inferences or determinations of the trial judge who, in April 2006, found Allan guilty of six charges in connection with the brutal attack. The appeal, Frankel noted, was “essentially an attempt to re-argue the case.” To succeed, an appeal must identify that legal error was made by the trial judge. Thursday’s unanimous decision by three justices was reached without hearing from Crown Jennifer Duncan. “We don’t find it necessary to call upon you,” Frankel told Duncan, after giving Allan – who was representing himself – the morning to state his case. Allan, 56, was arrested in 2003, following the Aug. 29, 2003 kidnapping and assault of his cousin, Allan Sutton. › see page 3

A city crew delivers new waste bins to Surrey households on Friday for garbage removal. A new garbage pickup program begins on Oct. 1.

Criticism of new garbage program based on misconceptions, says city staffer

A ‘huge leap in the right direction’ Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Racked with the pain of arthritis, 65-year-old Al Race has just managed to move his garbage cans to his laneway for pickup. Starting next week, however, he says he’ll have to haul three large bins to the front of his house over uneven terrain, which his joint pain precludes him from doing. Race said that because of his disability, his

garbage service will effectively stop on Oct. 1, when the city’s new Rethink Waste Collection Program kicks in. However, Surrey’s deputy operations manager of engineering, Rob Costanzo, said Thursday that Race will be looked after. A special service for people in need will have haulers bring the bins from the side of the house to the front for him. Race isn’t the only resident concerned or

confused about the city’s new garbage system, which launches next Monday. Local media have been inundated with calls and letters (see page 11) asking how the system is going to unfold, or why it’s necessary at all. The change in garbage pickup is part of Metro Vancouver’s regional waste strategy, which has an aim of raising its recycling rate to 70 per cent by 2015. › see page 4

Pedestrian succumbs

A 14-year-old Korean exchange student who was struck by a car in South Surrey last week has died. “We got official word this morning,” Surrey RCMP Sgt. Drew Grainger said Monday. The teen had been described as being in grave condition since the collision, which occurred around 9:30 p.m. Sept. 16 as he crossed 152 Street at 34 Avenue. Airlifted to B.C. Children’s Hospital with

what was described as “significant head trauma,” he was kept on life support until family could arrive from Korea. The student had been staying with extended family in South Surrey and attending school in Burnaby. While Grainger did not know exactly when the teen passed away, commenters to Peace Arch News’ online article noted he died Sunday morning.

City wants both at same time › from page 1 Coun. Tom Gill – the chair of Surrey’s Transportation and Infrastructure Committee – confirmed Monday that the province, city and TransLink have agreed to jointly fund the $2-million design work. But he also said a deal on cost-sharing the construction hasn’t been negotiated. Gill estimated that cost at $24 million, but said the actual amount will not be known until the detailed design is complete and contractor bids received. Gill said the provincial government has just appointed R.F. Binnie and Associates Ltd. to carry out the design of what he described as a “tight diamond interchange.” The plans should be ready by mid-December, he said. Gill said the movement on the interchange is a response to the “growing regional commuter demand from South Surrey, Langley and Abbotsford,” in particular the congestion on 32 Avenue at the 32 Avenue interchange that was built in 1999. However, no equivalent planning agreement has been reached for the 24 Avenue crossing over Highway 99 – another South Surrey site that has been earmarked for an interchange for several years, and which now is home to Grandview Corners and Morgan Crossing. “Ideally, we’d want both 16th and 24th (exchanges to proceed at the same time),” Gill said, “but I don’t think (the ministry) will fund both.” Surrey transport planning manager Philip

Pat O’Connor was surprised to learn an interchange would run behind the row of hedges in her backyard.

Bellefontaine said the deal to cost-share design work was the product of “quite recent” talks between Surrey and ministry staff. Bellefontaine said 16 Avenue has been identified as a “strategic connection” that has value to the city because it will reduce congestion on 32 Avenue. The city planner stressed that a final agreement on who will pay how much to build the interchange hasn’t been reached. That deal will probably not be done until after the design is completed, he said. “We (the city) have said we will support funding, but we don’t have a project to fund yet.”

Hazelmere hosts international meeting for business-government coalition

Both sides aim for faster border travel Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

An official in charge of the U.S. side of the Pacific Highway border crossing agrees more lanes are needed to reduce delays but says so far his superiors are unwilling to install them. “We’ve been long overdue for a lane expansion,” Gregory Alvarez, the area port director for the Blaine U.S. Customs and Border Protection office, told a South Surrey conference last week. “We do reach out to our headquarters to make that case every year.” Alvarez made his remarks during a question-and-answer session at a meeting of the International Mobility and Trade Corridor (IMTC) project, a U.S.Canadian coalition of government and business that promotes improvements to mobility and security for the four border crossings that connect Washing-

There are plans in the works, he said, to relocate the Nexus office off-site to have more room to handle processing of applicants. Andre Lamoureux, the manager of the National Trusted Traders program for the Canada Border Services Agency, said a pilot project now underway in Sarnia, Ont., may help find solutions to congestion at B.C. border crossings. Lamoureux told the conference the six-month FAST (Free And Secure Trade) program at the Blue Water Bridge could lead to a nationwide program that would speed cross-border shipping through harmonizing customs clearances and using RFID (Radio-frequency identification) chips similar to those used in Nexus cards to speed up identification.

Friday deadline

Only two so far enter White Rock byelection Those planning to run in White Rock’s upcoming byelection didn’t dash for the front door of city hall last week, when the 10-day nomination period opened. In fact, Sept. 18 came and went without a single nomination package dropped off. “We didn’t have any come in,” city clerk Tracey Arthur confirmed Wednesday. By Wednesday afternoon, however, two people had thrown their hat in the ring: Pat Petrala and Bruce McWilliam. Petrala is a longtime council watcher and community advocate. McWilliam ran for council in last fall’s election, receiving 1,138 votes and finishing in 11th place. The byelection – necessitated by the June 26 death of longtime councillor Mary-Wade Anderson – will take place Nov. 3. Under new bylaws enacted by the city in July, those planning to run must have at least 10 people backing their nomination. Each candidate must also make a $100 nomination deposit when filing their papers. The rules are aimed at ensuring candidates are serious, Arthur told council at the July meeting, in explaining her recommendations for change. The deposit, she added, will be refunded after campaign financial disclosure papers are filed. The byelection is projected to cost the city $40,000. Nomination packages may be picked up at city hall, 15322 Buena Vista Ave., or downloaded from the city’s website. They will be accepted until 4 p.m. Sept. 28.

Hovercraft recovers craft

Lee Beliveau photo

Search and rescue crew members aboard the Canadian Coast Guard’s hovercraft scour the waters off of Mud Bay last week, after a concerned citizen reported a boat drifting in the area. Fisheries and Oceans Canada officials said the Sept. 16 exercise evolved from a rescue mission to a simple vessel recovery. There were no injuries reported.

Justices dismiss appeal without hearing Crown › from page 1 Over the course of the lengthy subsequent trial in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster, the court heard how Allan kidnapped Sutton from his home in the 16300-block of 20 Avenue. He “piped” the 47-year-old in the head, bound him with duct tape, put him in the trunk of a Lincoln and dumped him at the side of a dirt road, court documents state. Sutton testified Allan had appeared unexpectedly at the bathroom door and demanded to speak with him. He recalled telling Allan it was a bad time, as he was getting ready for work, then waking up in Royal Columbian Hospital three weeks later. Allan was convicted of kidnapping, aggravated assault, robbery, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, break-and-enter with intent to commit assault and possession of a stolen vehicle worth more than $5,000. In sentencing, Crown successfully argued for Allan to be deemed a dangerous offender, a designation which carries an indeterminate jail term. (Allan’s appeal of that sentence is expected to be heard sometime next year.) Thursday, Sutton and sister-in-law Debbie

Sutton listened – taking extensive notes and at times shaking their heads in disbelief – as Allan pleaded his case for either acquittal or new trial. Allan’s nine points to Frankel and Justices Elizabeth Bennett and Kathryn Neilson included that he did not receive full disclosure and that the trial judge “failed to address the significance” that information detailing a lack of forensic evidence placing him in Sutton’s home was missing from an RCMP flow-chart. Allan also maintained there were contradictions in witness statements, including Sutton’s; that three officers had “altered their initial experience with the complainant” to support Sutton; and that two others, including a former roommate of his, lied on the stand. The trial judge erred in accepting those witnesses’ testimony, Allan said. In dismissing the appeal, Frankel noted the trial dealt with identifying the accused. The trial judge found that evidence “overwhelming,” he said. Regarding the lack of disclosure, Frankel said it was addressed at trial. Allegations of a conspiracy were not raised at trial, he said. Prior to the appeal court’s decision, Allan

Sutton told Peace Arch News he never fully recovered from the attack by his cousin. The former lawyer often can’t get on with his day until hours after waking. In order to attend Thursday’s appeal, he said, he had to stay up the entire night before. His inability to function in the morning is one of the reasons he will never return to work. “There’s no way I could be reliable enough,” he said, noting the attack impacted his balance. “I can’t even look up without holding onto something.” Sutton said he is certain Allan intended to kill him, and he has not forgiven Allan. “I’m furious,” Sutton said, noting the attack was the first time he’d seen his cousin in nearly 20 years. “He’s ruined my life over a bunch of ridiculous nonsense.” Debbie Sutton said she has attended every court proceeding for the case and doesn’t leave the room until Allan has been escorted out. Citing Allan’s inexplicable animosity toward the family, she said she will continue to be vigilant. The risk he poses to her family – should he ever be released – is too great, she said. “We’ll always be aware of where he is.”

Numbers nearly double those from 2010

City tree-cuts climbing Kevin Diakiw Black Press

The number of trees cut annually in Surrey is on the rise, but recent numbers have yet to outpace some of the last decade’s highs. Between 2001 and 2008, the City of Surrey was issuing permits to cut down almost 10,000 trees annually, according to figures obtained by Black Press. But then the recession hit in 2009, and construction dropped by 40 per cent. The number of trees cut fell by more than 50 per cent, with 4,662 coming down that year. In 2010, the number of tree cuts fell even further, with only 3,463 being axed. City staff said at the time that the reduction in trees cut was partly due to the drop in building and the type of development occurring, known as infill, where construction occurs on alreadycleared lands. However, last year’s number of trees being cut almost doubled the 2010 figures to 6,533, or about 555 a month. To the end of August this year, Surrey has already issued permits to cut down 4,597 trees, or about 574 a month. Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts

Tree-cutting permits are up in Surrey this year.

said the city is doing what it can to keep the cuts to a minimum. In some places, the cuts can look more obvious because neighbourhood concept plans in areas such as Grandview Heights have been completed and development is under way. Trees have long been near and dear to the hearts of Surrey residents. The public was angered in 2005 when the city was clearing vast amounts of forest. At the time, Black Press reported there was an average of 9,100 trees cut over the four years prior. Watts, then a councillor, referred to several areas of the

city as a “moonscape” because of the large tree loss. It became an issue in the mayoralty race in 2005, which Watts won. She enacted the Tree Protection Bylaw in 2006, but it failed to slow tree cuts in the city. The number of trees felled annually continued at a greater rate, with 33,300 bylaw-protected trees coming down in three years (2006-2008) – or 11,100 annually (22 per cent higher than in years prior to the bylaw). The bylaw also has a provision for developments where the twofor-one tree replacement rule can’t be met. In those situations, a cash-in-lieu system requires a $300 fee be paid into a green fund for each tree not replaced. Contributions to that fund have been accelerating, indicating the replacements are dropping. Replacements in 2010 were an exception, where 2.27 trees were replaced for each one cut down. However, in 2011, that dropped to 1.11 for each tree cut and the rate currently sits at 1.44 for every tree felled to the end of August this year. Last year, Surrey collected more than $1 million cash in lieu for its green fund. Watts said the cash collected is either being used to plant trees elsewhere, or buy lands to protect in perpetuity.

“Raising funds and awareness to support programs and services that provide a safer community.” The Semiahmoo Volunteer Community Policing Society was formed in 1993 to raise funds for community policing on the South Surrey/White Rock peninsula. The Society is run by a group of local passionate volunteers which allows 100% of the funds we raise to be invested back into programs and services to support our community. The Society and its volunteers support several programs such as Speed Watch, Bike Patrol, Block Watch, D.A.R.E. and Ride Right Bicycle Safety

Training to name just a few. These programs all contribute to providing a safer community for our families and businesses to live and do business in. The volunteers that run these programs donated several thousand hours per year to ensure the safety of our community. The generous support of our donors and sponsors help us provide the financial resources necessary for the continued success of these programs and initiatives.

Family stricken with rashes after trip to Crescent Beach

Swimmer’s itch ‘nightmare’

Twelve days after they went swimming in Crescent Beach, three-year-old Millen Adamson of White Rock and her one-yearold brother, Blane, were still covered with vivid red spots on both legs. “It’s actually a lot better now,” mother Dana Adamson told Peace Arch News last week. It started with a trip to get some fish and chips from a beachside vendor in Crescent Beach. Once there, the chidden wanted to play in the water, and their parents saw no reason to stop them. “There were 20 other kids in the water,” Father Paul Adamson said. Later that same day, he says, Millen began to experience symptoms. “Daddy, my legs are really, itchy, itchy, itchy,” she told him. By the next morning, both children had a severe outbreak of “pimple-looking” lesions below the waist. It was swimmer’s itch. According to HealthLink BC, the condition is not life-threatening, but it can be quite unpleasant. The temporary, itchy rash is caused by small worm-like parasites, called schistosomes, found in the bodies of water snails and in the bloodstream of aquatic mammals, ducks or other waterfowl. When swimming near the water surface in search of these hosts, schistosome larvae sometimes mistakenly get on people’s skin. After a person leaves the water, the microscopic larvae burrows under the skin, dies almost immediately and can cause an allergic reaction that results in the itchy rash. It can be painful, especially for small children. “We went through two nights of

hell,” Paul Adamson said. A doctor said his daughter was old enough to take an antihistamine to reduce her symptoms, but his son was too young. “It’s a bit of a nightmare,” the father said. According to Fraser Health, swimmer’s itch is fairly common in Crescent Beach and occurs every summer when the weather gets hot. The best preventative is to vigorously towel off on leaving the water. “We didn’t have a towel with us and that was our mistake,” Paul Adamson says.

The parents said they didn’t know the problem existed at the beach, and while they have been told by the City of Surrey that warning signs have been posted, they said any signs were not obvious to them. Dana Adamson, who has had her own brush with swimmer’s itch, says she would have noticed any reference to it. Surrey parks manager Owen Croy said the warnings are there. “It’s been added to all the signage.” Croy says there’s only been one reported complaint of swimmer’s itch at Crescent Beach this year. Treatments for the afflicted includes cool compresses, calamine lotion and antihistamines. For more information on swimmer’s itch, visit www.healthlinkbc.ca/healthfiles/hfile52.stm

Dueling disasters leave ‘Does’ dizzy

T

he electorate of B.C. could be forgiven for feeling dizzy by the end of Monday. In the wake of recent developments, flacks for the provincial Liberals and the BC Conservatives were producing enough ‘spin’ to rival a row of tops. At the end of the day, all that could be said to be spinning was the heads of voters. These poor John and Jane Does must be wondering if there is still such a thing as political leadership in the province, or whether the 2013 election will be fought strictly on the basis of ‘dueling disasters’ – or which party scores the least own-goals. There is no way the resignation of Premier Christy Clark’s chief of staff Ken Boessenkool can be termed good news for the embattled BC Liberals, spin it how they may. Clark may characterize it as a swiftly dealtwith disciplinary matter following an internal investigation – and trumpet the advent of BC Hydro board chairman Dan Doyle, a career public servant who helped run the 2010 Winter Olympics and the Pacific Gateway, as acting chief of staff. But there are questions about the requested resignation of the former Stephen Harper aide that suggests another leak in a badly listing ship. Boessenkool’s own wording of his resignation letter – in which he refers to an incident in which he “acted inappropriately,” and to his family, which he says he “also let down” – carries with it a whiff of scandal that the media will find hard to resist chasing down. But the BC Liberals are not alone in their embarrassment. The results of the BC Conservatives’ AGM in Langley show that only 71 per cent of voting members believe enough in party leader John Cummins not to request a leadership review. While Cummins is still gung-ho to win the next election, it’s hard to view this result as a glowing endorsement of his leadership. Even worse for the BC Conservatives, it was accompanied by the resignation from the party of its lone MLA, John Van Dongen, and the defection of former Chilliwack-Hope candidate John Martin to the Liberals. The NDP – while considered anathema by anyone right of centre – have done the least to offend in recent weeks. But, by the same token, they have also done the least to build their image, mend fences, or present a new vision for B.C. While the pollsters grant them a commanding lead, they seem to be holding their breath for fear of making a mistake. This cannot be interpreted as leadership, either – the only thing worse than placing a foot wrong, after all, is not placing a foot at all.

up from Nanaimo or Nelson. Cruising along at nearly 50 per cent in the polls, the NDP have also put a heavy emphasis on post-secondary. But they’re still playing to the urban Occupy crowd, with a promise of a tax on banks to fund student grants. Instead of providing loan relief after successful completion, they’re going to hand out money at the front end, just like they did in my student days. My experience as a student, a job seeker and a parent is that free money encourages aimless study, and the selection of courses that are appealing rather than safe investments. We already have far too much of that, and I think most students today would be better off with a bigger debt and a well-paying job. As the new trades plan was being rolled out (and mostly ignored by the Vancouver media), former finance minister Colin Hansen announced he’s retiring. It was Hansen who started the push for skills training back in 2008, emphasizing that there will be a million new jobs open by 2019, 600,000 of them due to retiring baby boomers. Hansen made a sales trip to snowy Toronto to launch advertising to lure people to B.C. That effort is being revised with a series of interprovincial and international trips, because even if all 650,000 high school students graduate and go to work in B.C. from now to 2019, it won’t be enough to fill all the jobs on the horizon.

PUBLIC NOTICE

RECALL AND INITIATIVE ACT

This notice is published pursuant to section 4 of the Recall and Initiative Act. Approval in principle has been granted on an application for an initiative petition. The petition will be issued to proponent Dana Larsen on Monday, November 19, 2012 and signature sheets must be submitted to the Chief Electoral Officer by Monday, February 18, 2013. The Title of the Initiative is: An initiative to amend the Police Act. Summary of Initiative: The initiative draft Bill entitled, “Sensible Policing Act” proposes to amend the Police Act to no longer use provincial police resources on the enforcement of current laws in relation to simple possession and use of cannabis by adults. The draft law would prohibit the use of provincial police resources for this purpose, would require police to report in detail to the Minister of Justice any actual use of resources for this purpose and why it was necessary, and require the Minister to publish that report. The Bill also proposes that the Province would call upon the Federal Government to repeal the federal prohibition on cannabis, or give British Columbia an exemption, such that British Columbia is able to tax and regulate cannabis similar to the regulation of alcohol and tobacco. As well it proposes that British Columbia shall establish a Provincial Commission to study the means and requirements necessary for the province to establish a legal and regulated model for the production and use of cannabis by adults. Last, the Bill would make non-lawful possession and use of cannabis by minors an offence similar to possession and use of alcohol.

Zoning intent circumvented Editor: White Rock – a free for all. “My City by the Sea” is now the “new Canada.” We like the diversity of people and ideas encountered here. However, I am appalled at the laxity of rules for development, especially in-fills. To whom does it make sense that in my East Beach neighbourhood an 11,000-square-foot house with a six-car parking garage fits the current zoning rules? I do not fault my neighbor, because he is building a home for himself and his extended families. I do not blame the city planners, who acknowledge the intent of the law has been circumvented. I do blame our councils, who continue to allow the chaos the current zoning rules create, and who choose not to change them. Should every permit application not meet with the letter – as well as the intent – of our laws? The rule of maximum square footage does not logically fit all situations. We own this city. We can make new rules and work to see that they are not circumvented. We are a small city for one reason only – to maintain “My City by the Sea,” not a megalopolis of inappropriate development, be it an eight-foot house beside a mega home or a mega home beside our cottage. Council, I suggest a new program of common sense development or join Surrey and lower our taxes. Lorraine & Chip Hand, White Rock

Dogs are individuals Editor: Re: City seeks help with dog attacks, Sept. 20; Parents thankful girl, 4, survives pit bull attack, Aug. 28. I don’t think I am surprised by people’s reaction to the news, but I am annoyed with the pit bull story. I am sorry about what happened to the little girl but you can’t generalize. Every decade had its own breed of dogs that were considered aggressive. I still say it’s not the breed, it is the dog. We people tend to generalize and give names to things we don’t understand – like calling one group of people all drug dealers, another white trash and another terrorists – but we know there are a few bad apples, and you can’t generalize and use these terms on everybody. We are individuals. So are the dogs. When people say there were no warning signs, that is not true. There is always a warning sign; maybe not at the instance when the dog attacks, but before. A dog is an animal; you cannot trust them 100 per cent. You don’t know what can trigger the attack, especially when there are children involved. I have a dog; it’s not a pit bull.

And my boyfriend had a dog who was mellow, especially with kids, till one day it reacted to a little girl. It did not harm her, but there was a sign. One day a lady came to the house and, out of the blue, the dog bit her – thank God not too hard. Later, it growled a few times at people – there was the sign again. It was the hardest decision, but we put the dog down. We knew if it happens once, it can happen again. We tend to ignore small signs because we love our dogs. You have a choice to keep it on a leash and ask for professional help or, if the aggression grows, it’s your responsibility to put the dog down. I see many little dogs totally aggressive, and the owners find it cute because they are small. It is not cute; it is an out-of-control animal that can create problems, but we

tend to be more afraid of big dogs because of their size and strength. Don’t condemn the breed. We people with dogs should help each other create a safer place for everyone. Eva Hompoth,White Rock

White Rock’s leap of faith Editor: I’ve had to deal with so many jaywalkers in White Rock, almost daily. Who’s at fault? Is it the pedestrian who is only a 100 yards from a crosswalk or the lights who decides to cross? Or is it the drivers who stop and

allow them to cross? Many elderly people with their walkers cross four lanes on Martin Drive or North Bluff Road. I also have seen two parents and their children under the ages of five run across four lanes on 16 Avenue. I was recently in Ontario and experienced the crosswalks there. The crosswalks have overhangs and large yellow markings, hard to miss. Yet, the drivers there rarely stop for the pedestrians patiently waiting at the designated crossing and, in fact, it’s high risk for the pedestrian to do so. In White Rock, it’s a leap of faith when the pedestrian crosses the road. Will the driver stop at an undesignated crossing? I guess we do, because there is a lot of jaywalking around here. Anna Lund, White Rock

quote of note

I would like to know where this study was conducted. Was it in a neighbourhood of houses that have storage for these monstrosities?❞ ❝

S. Pike

contributed photos

Letter-writer Monty Pownall shows before-and-after photos of waste handling for City of Surrey residents.

In with the old, out with the new Editor: About three years ago, the City of Surrey had a very handy and workable garbage/recycling program. There was one blue box for newsprint, one container for glossy paper and another for glass and plastic. Also, there was a plan to get rid of the yard waste. For some unknown reason – without any rationale – it was then deemed better to combine all of this “crap” into the same container – to be sorted in another manner. And now, delivered to our homes last week, we have a new system that is quite cumbersome and awkward. Where does one hide these horrible three huge plastic containers? People will have to build additional storage areas – or leave them out on the street, as I intend to do. Of course, I will paint them in pastel colours in order to spruce up our city. By themselves they are so ugly. Al Renflesh, Surrey n Just received our new garbage cans. Where am I to put them? I have sent photos of them (above right), and of the driveway and space we have. I have also sent what my wife and I have been using for years (above left). The blue box went out once a month, maybe twice. No bags to go into the cans? I have seen these cans all around our neighbourhood. They are all just sitting around; no one knows where to put them or what to do with them. We cannot even use them until Oct. 1. Who thought – or did not think – up this plan? Huge waste of taxpayers’ money. We cannot pay teachers and are short on transit funding, yet we can do this unnecessary garbage change-up? And no, I am not a teacher nor do I have any in my family. How are we to keep them clean? Before, we had a plastic liner. Now, we have pint-size paper bags?

Someone help! Another waste of time. No consultation with the public again. Just the government doing things that do not make sense. Monty Pownall, Surrey n According to a notice that was sent out, a pilot study with 1,000 Surrey households was conducted and 90 per cent were supportive of the cart-based program. I would like to know where this study was conducted. Was it in a neighbourhood of houses that have storage for these monstrosities? I live in South Surrey – no yard, a short driveway and a narrow sidewalk with stairs to a 35-foot-wide backyard. I currently have a blue recycling box, which is set curbside with one round garbage container. Both these containers are manageable and don’t take up much space. But now, I am to struggle with containers that look like they belong in an industrial/commercial zone. And where are they supposed to be kept? It is said it will only cost us an extra $36.50 per year for bin liners. But what about the industrial sizes of baking soda we have to purchase, and the use of our metered water for cleanup? We are now left with large Kraft yard-cleanup bags, garbage-container liner bags, along with the clear yardcleanup bags that the Kraft bags replaced. No reduction in garbage rates? Has anybody bothered to ask residents of other cities about the abundance of rats and the maggots? South Surrey is a visually appealing area but is now in jeopardy of losing its appeal. I am forced to keep my nice new shiny carts on city property in front of my house. I emailed my concerns regarding manageability and storage in early January but – as usual – no response. Another gross waste of taxpayer money. S. Pike, Surrey

Tracy Holmes photos

Ellaray Lewis and her dad, Craig, head to the office at Sunnyside Elementary Tuesday to sign Ellaray back in for the day. Below, Ellaray poses for a photo in her kindergarten classroom.

Ellaray Lewis beats the odds and enjoys her first few weeks of kindergarten

llaray Lewis doesn’t hesitate when asked what she likes best about school: “We do crafts and we get nap time – that’s my favourite,” the five-year-old says, as she skips toward her kindergarten classroom at Sunnyside Elementary. It’s Ellaray’s third week of school and there’s no doubt the South Surrey youngster has settled in, buzzing about the room like it’s her second home and racing off to the playground at the sound of the bell. While starting kindergarten is a new and exciting chapter for all five-year-olds, for Ellaray the milestone is decidedly more significant – it’s one her dad Craig, not so long ago, couldn’t imagine reaching. “I never thought we’d make it to this actual date,” Craig says. Ellaray was born with giant congenital twin nevus, a rare

condition that developed into an aggressive skin cancer. Doctors immediately began operating to remove the wart-like growths and hairy, brownish spots that plastered her tiny body. Through surgery after surgery, they systematically removed as much of the affected skin and muscles as possible, each time stretching her healthy skin to cover the area where the diseased tissue had been cut away.

After nine surgeries, Ellaray’s skin wouldn’t stretch anymore, and doctors began growing replacement skin in bags implanted under her skin. Between surgeries – her 20th is scheduled for Oct. 11 – she goes weekly to BC Children’s Hospital to have the bags topped up with fluid, as much as two ounces at a time. As of this month, she’s had 16 of the bags implanted. As each

Keep sense of humour while training dogs Dog Utopia Having been a professional dog walker in the past, I have walked many dogs in my day and some are really fun and relaxing to walk and others are quite a bit more frustrating on leash. Walking with your dog should be something enjoyable and stress reducing. Sadly, I see people give up on such a wonderful bonding exercise with their dog. If you find that your dog is very distracted walking on leash pulling you every which way, paying attention to everything around him except for you, getting some help from a trainer is nothing to be ashamed of. You are not the only one whose dog acts this way and you can have that relaxing experience with a little bit of help and some regular practise. The first thing you need to ask yourself is what do you want your dog to do? If your answer is, “I do not want Charley to pull me.” This is the wrong answer. You might say, “I want Charley to pay more attention to me on walks.” Or “I want Charley to walk with a loose leash.” Once you know what you want from your dog, you can work towards getting there. Focussing on the negative with your dog leaves you constantly correcting certain behaviours without explaining to your dog what you want. How is Charley supposed to understand what is expected when you do not communicate that to him/her? Ask people who have well behaved dogs what trainer they use or ask your veterinarian who they can recommend. Anyone in the pet care industry will have a referral. Once you have a name of a trainer, contact them and ask if you can sit in on a class or two and observe how they operate their classes. If you see positive training methods and you like the trainer, sign up and start the work. If you are not welcome to observe a class, look elsewhere. The best advice I can give anyone when training your dog is to keep a good sense of humour. If you get worked up and frustrated, your dog is likely to shut down and not respond to what you are trying to accomplish. Enjoy the time with your dog and you will want to practise more and you will reach your goal a lot faster. Call us for info on our training classes 604-541-8120 Happy training!

Win Carson reads one of the many birthday cards she received for her 101st birthday last Friday.

South Surrey senior Win Carson celebrates her 101st birthday

A century of experiences Sarah Massah Staff Reporter

With more than a century on this planet, Win Carson has seen and experienced her fair share of incredible things. Since her birth on Sept. 21, 1911, the automatic pop-up toaster was created (1919), the concept of frozen food became a reality (1923) and, more recently, the world was introduced to the World Wide Web (1990). But of all the amazing things that have happened in her lifetime, on her 101st birthday celebration Friday, Carson said one thing stands out the most. “Marrying my husband, Bill Davis. That has to be the most memorable for me,” she said, sit-

ting in her suite at Whitecliffe Retirement Residences. “He was a magnificent ice skater and I saw him one day and wondered who he was.” That was in Brandon, Man. After asking about him, they were introduced and sparks flew. Only one catch. Davis was engaged to a girl in Winnipeg. “I said I wasn’t going to interfere. If he was going to marry her, then that was that,” she said. Instead, Carson went to the ice skating rink, where, by a stroke of good luck, she saw Davis again, and the rest was history. “He called it off. So I guess I won the game,” Carson laughed. The two – who had two sons together – moved to White Rock

Cutting Costs

$

in 1975. After Davis passed in 1987, Carson was resigned to live life alone. However, she eventually met her second husband, Gordan Carson, and they were married three years later. After Gordon’s passing, Carson moved into Whitecliff Retirement Residences, where she has lived for the past six years. Although the former stenographer has lived through many sad passings, including the death of her youngest son due to a heart attack, she maintained the past 100 years have been a wonderful experience. “I never thought I’d live this long, but I have had a pretty good life,” she said.

On October 1, 2012 we will make another positive change in our waste collection services in an effort to achieve the 70% solid waste diversion rate mandated by Metro Vancouver. At this time, garbage collection for single family dwellings will move to biweekly (every second week) collection.

For more information, visit us online at www.whiterockcity.ca/garbagecollection or call the department of Engineering and Municipal Operations at 604.541.2181.

Last year we made significant changes in our waste collection service to single family homes by introducing the Green Can program, a yard trimmings and food scraps recycling program. If you’ve regularly been using a Green Can, you’ve already noticed a substantial change in the amount of garbage you produce.

Starting October 1, 2012, garbage collection for single family dwellings will move to biweekly (every second week) collection. Blue box recycling and the Green Can program will continue to be collected weekly. As the majority of our waste can be recycled, please continue to focus on the weekly recycling and green waste programs and help reduce the amount of waste we send to the landfill.

Who Walks In The Dark Just in time for Halloween, White Rock Players Club offers a thriller involving a re-animated Egyptian mummy and a jewel with an ancient curse. Tickets are available now for Who Walks In The Dark (Coast Capital Playhouse, Oct. 10-27), an adaptation by late playwright Tim Kelly of the 1903 novel The Jewel of Seven Stars, written by Dracula author Bram Stoker. Helming the occult period piece is renowned actor/ director Paul Kloegman (Humble Boy, Ladies of the Camellias). Expect chills and special effects in the scary tale, set in 1898 at Karnak House, London, home of Sir Abel Trelawney (Ken Fynn), a distinguished archeologist who has unwittingly broken into the Egyptian tomb of an evil sorceress. Murderous havoc ensues, involving Sir Abel’s daughters Margaret (Alexandra Wilson) and Judith (Krystle Hadlow), his housekeeper (Deborah Spitz), Egyptian servant Suleiman (Ryan Johnston) and colleague (and Judith’s fiancé) Christopher Ross (Keaton Mazurek). Also caught up in the dead-pan, over-the-top melodramatics: serious Doctor Winchester (David Lloyd Austin), Romanian thief Tessie (Jane Mantle), and a comedic police sergeant who’s clearly read too many accounts of Sherlock Holmes’ cases (Bryce Mills). Shows run Wedenesday to Saturday at 8 p.m. at the theatre (1532 Johnston Rd.), with a gala night Oct. 12 and 2:30 p.m. matinee Oct. 21. For tickets ($18) and information, call 604536-7535, or visit www. whiterockplayers.ca

Singers wanted Pacific Showtime Men’s Chorus – based in Ocean Park and directed by ‘Mr. O Canada’ Mark Donnelly – has resumed rehearsals Monday nights at 7:30 p.m. at St. Mark’s Church, 12953 20 Ave. The small community chorus of experienced singers is currently seeking new members

winning ensembles of the White Rock Children’s Choir family directed by Sarona Mynhardt. The show presented in both a 3:30 p.m. matinee and a 7:30 p.m. evening performance includes selections from Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, Brigadoon, Evita, My Fair Lady and Leonard Bernstein’s masterwork Candide. Tickets ($27.50, $25 seniors and students) are available from 604-5015566.

for all vocal ranges: lead, tenor, baritone and bass. Offering a big sound in a variety of musical styles, Pacific Showtime has been featured at a wide range of Lower Mainland events, including show productions, concerts and private functions. Male singers are invited to attend rehearsals to check out the group and, hopefully, join in.

Outside The Box Outside The Box, the second annual celebration of fibre and textile arts, continues at local venues until Oct. 5. The festival is aimed at promoting awareness of the rich versatility of fibre and textile art – from purely decorative to functional works. White Rock Library (15342 Buena Vista Ave.) will feature displays by Piece Arch Quilters, Semiahmoo Guild of Needlearts (Sept. 27) and Christian Geissler. White Rock Community Centre (15154 Russell Ave.) will be the venue for Outside The Box: An Exploration of Fibre, presented by Semiahmoo Arts and the City of White Rock, until Oct. 19, as well as the related exhibit by Don Welsh of Semiahmoo First Nation of his detailed model of an aboriginal fishing village. Next door in Bryant Park, artist Alicia M.B. Ballard’s interactive art installation Interknots – which festooned trees with colourful fibre art but was interrupted for a week by unknown vandals who stole donated scarves – will make a comeback thanks to supporters in the community. Mind and Matter Gallery, at 13743 16 Ave., features fibrescapes by internationally-known artist Pauline McLean Dutkowski, as well as wood sculpture by the late Arnold Mikelson and pieces by a variety of contributors. White Rock Museum and Archives is in step with the exhibit, Baskets: Fibrous, Functional and Fabulous, a collection of First Nations basketry originally collected by the late Irene Maccaud.

Spacious living at the Pacific Carlton

S

uperbly located near malls and services in the heart of White Rock, the Pacific Carlton welcomes you home to spacious suites with warm fireplaces and huge balconies. The suites – some of the largest in the province – range from 1,000 square ––––feet twobedroom, two-bathroom homes to 1,800-square-feet penthouses. For longtime resident Lorna Foth, the ample space, full kitchen, insuite dining room and washer and dryer helped her choose Pacific Carlton as her new home. “I chose to move to Pacific Carlton because the suites are so large, bright and comfortable; it made leaving my previous home that much easier.” Lorna says the building’s huge, bright atrium is the perfect spot for all to gather for lunch and coffee breaks. “It’s our spot to socialize.” The eye-catching centerpiece of the atrium is the beautiful baby grand piano where residents often gather and enjoy a broad variety of entertainers or sing along together. Another favorite spot for Foth is the inviting dining room. When you arrive to enjoy a meal, all your senses – especially smell and taste – will be busy focusing on the tantalizing fare from the kitchen, which serves up three delicious meals a day to residents. “Our chef-prepared dinners are delicious and pleasantly served, with four choices for a main course each night,” she said. A fresh vegetable bar and a wide range of entrees sure to please any palate await at each meal – from a nutritious breakfast to get you ready for the day ahead, to a hearty dinner to enjoy with friends. And what better way to work up

Movie nights (above) are a favourite pastime for the residents. The lush garden (right) is another popular spot. an appetite than a healthy dose of exercise. Residents have full use of the Pacific Carlton’s exercise room and are also offered yoga and Tai Chi classes with the activity coordinator. But there’s more than just exercise to keep you limber. “You’ll discover a slew of fun recreational activities from games and dances to special events and outings

in the community,” said resident Beryl Anderson. “I particularly enjoy the music concerts, pub nights, evening dancing and just enjoying each other’s company. We also have bus trips every Wednesday!” In fact, this month the residents will take a sight-seeing trip to Nanaimo. All the travel details will be taken care of by capable staff so

residents are able to enjoy a carefree mini-vacation day. Pacific Carlton has earned a long list of complimentary testimonials from residents and their families for the high quality of exceptionally considerate and helpful staff. “Our manager and staff are wonderful, caring people. They look after us well,” said Dorothy Petrescu, who has been living at Pacific Carl-

ton for eight years. At home at Pacific Carlton, residents can relax in the well-maintained and brilliantly flowering garden, which features relaxing seating and lush greenery. More often than not, the garden is bubbling with laughter and chatter as residents and staff enjoy a summer barbecue or a peaceful picnic. And due to its central location – with Semiahmoo Mall among other amenities, only steps away – there are plenty of places to visit, right here on the Peninsula. “It’s a one-block walk to the newly renovated Semiahmoo Mall, or if we don’t feel like walking, transportation is provided twice a week for groceries, shopping and doctor’s appointments,” Foth said. Dorothy Dickens echoes Foth’s sentiment. “We have close proximity to shopping, restaurants and clinics. Best of all, people here are friendly, which creates a safe and comfortable atmosphere,” she said. “This is a good place to call home.” For more information, call 604531-1160 or visit www.unicarehomes.com

Drivers sign up in droves for toll system registration

Strong start for Port Mann Jeff Nagel Black Press

Nearly 30,000 people registered to use the new tolled Port Mann Bridge in just the first two days of sign-ups, surprising project officials. The early surge put the electronic tolling system 10 per cent of the way to its target of 300,000 registered users by the end of February. “We’re very pleased that we’ve had the response we have had so far,” Port Mann/Highway 1 project communications director Max Logan said last week. “It’s a terrific start for us.” The province wants regular bridge users to sign up and get the TReO windshield decal that is automatically and efficiently detected without the more costly use of licence plate cameras and manual image checks that will be used to invoice non-registered vehicles. Officials also think the more drivers who register and use the system, the more will embrace the tolled Port Mann and not clog other routes to reach an untolled bridge. As an incentive, half-price tolls – $1.50 for regular cars instead of $3 – apply for a full year for those who register before March 1, when the three-month discount period for all expires and non-registered users start paying full price. A further incentive gives 20 free crossings to those who sign up before Nov. 30. Logan expects many more users to register as those two

The TReO decal will be sent to thousands of people who signed up. deadlines near. “Our goal is to have 80 to 85 per cent of our regular users registered,” Logan said. The new Port Mann officially opens sometime in December with a free week before tolling begins. TReO system registration opened Sept. 17 at www.treo.ca Logan said many drivers may not be aware yet of how the system works, that it costs nothing to register and get a decal and that it will also give them the lowest available toll when using TransLink’s Golden Ears Bridge. Asked how many drivers who don’t register might escape paying, Logan said the licence plate recognition system has an accuracy rate of more than 95 per cent but manual reviews of images should bring the enforce-

ment rate to 99 per cent and ensure virtually all are invoiced. He said the “sophisticated” cameras can still read plates some drivers may try to obscure with dirt or other substances and motorists who do that face police enforcement. Logan expects the “vast majority” of out-of-province visitors will also pay voluntarily. Signs will direct non-B.C. residents to either pay their toll online or detour to customer service centres in Surrey or Coquitlam where they’ll be able to pay in person or use a drivethrough kiosk without getting out of their car. The Coquitlam centre is at Lougheed Highway at Woolridge, while the Surrey one is at the 160 Street/104 Avenue interchange.

The Bill also proposes that the Province would call upon the Federal Government to repeal the federal prohibition on cannabis, or give British Columbia an exemption, such that British Columbia is able to tax and regulate cannabis similar to the regulation of alcohol and tobacco. As well it proposes that British Columbia shall establish a Provincial Commission to study the means and requirements necessary for the province to establish a legal and regulated model for the production and use of cannabis by adults. Last, the Bill would make non-lawful possession and use of cannabis by minors an offence similar to possession and use of alcohol.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

After folding last season, Earl Marriott’s senior football team is back on the field

Mariners aiming to right the ship Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Earl Marriott Secondary football coach Michael Mackay-Dunn would prefer to forget all about last season. It was, by nearly any measure, more trying, more stressful, than any other season – save for perhaps the football program’s inaugural year in 2005. But unlike that first season, when most issues arose simply because building a program from scratch is never easy, last year’s struggles were far more difficult for Mackay-Dunn, and others, to stomach. The senior team began last season with 25 players – fewer Michael than most other Mackay-Dunn teams – and injuries quickly took their toll, to the point where, after two lopsided losses last October and with the team’s roster dwindled to the bare minimum, Mackay-Dunn cancelled the rest of the season. “We just didn’t have the numbers, didn’t have the kids to put on the field,” the longtime coach told PAN at the time. “If you don’t, you start having to put kids in positions (on the field) they aren’t comfortable with, and then it becomes a safety issue, and I will never put my kids in a position where they’re going to potentially be hurt.” And off the field, too, the Mariners couldn’t escape even worse news, as former coach Bryan James – part of the coaching staff during that 2005 season – died just before Christmas, after collapsing at an office party. But while Mackay-Dunn admits now that he had concerns that the program would fold for good, the school’s teams have all returned to the gridiron. The numbers are still not quite

Earl Marriott Mariners running back Travis Grandjambe tries to shake a Howe Sound tackler during a varsity football game Friday at EMS. where Mackay-Dunn would like, but he’s enthused by the participation in the Grade 8 and junior varsity ranks, which bodes well for the senior squad down the road. This year, the Grade 8 Mariners are playing at the AAA level, while the juniors compete in AA. The senior team will play this season at Tier 2 – a developmental league – though they still play exhibition tilts against top competition. “We’re not (Vancouver College), with 50 or 60 or more kids. I wish we were, but we’re not. But I tell you, the numbers might be light, but we have a lot of kids with potential,” Mackay-Dunn said.

“There were some dark days. Days where I thought we’d pack it in, but I’ve never quit on anything in my life, and so much energy went into getting this program up and running, I didn’t want to see it stop. We worked too hard for it.” He says participation numbers continue to grow on the school’s younger teams as students become interested in the sport, and he doesn’t expect last year’s troubles to plague the team again. “Last year, we had some injuries, some discipline issues, some other things – it was not what we wanted,” he explained. “But we’ve come in this year and made the kids more accountable,

and I really think we’re back on track.” The school’s three squads have certainly been busy in the season’s first few weeks. On Sept. 7, the senior Mariners hosted Rutland at EMS, while the junior team hosted G.W. Graham, and the following Friday, both teams went on the road to Kamloops for games against Westsyde Secondary. After returning home from Kamloops late Friday, 45 players – along with coaches and other chaperones – turned around and headed for Seattle early Saturday morning, for a trip to the University of Washington,

to watch the Huskies take on Portland State in NCAA football action. Last week was even busier, as the senior team played the Rick Hansen Hurricanes in Abbotsford Wednesday before hosting Howe Sound Friday afternoon. “Only some idiot like myself would come up with this schedule,” laughed Mackay-Dunn. Of course, a busy gridiron schedule beats the alternative, which Mackay-Dunn realizes. “It’s a very busy two weeks, that’s for sure… (but) I’m re-energized, I really am. We just have to continue to promote football and keep growing.”

Surrey beats Victoria, loses to Alberni Valley

Eagles split homestand Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The Surrey Eagles continued a flight pattern that’s become awfully familiar to them of late – win one, lose one. The BC Hockey League squad kept its overall record at .500 on the weekend, after a 3-2 home-ice win over the Victoria Grizzlies Friday, and a 5-4 loss to the Alberni Valley Bulldogs Sunday afternoon. The Eagles have earned a split in each of the first three weekends of the regular season, and the pattern was one they found themselves in often last season, too. The team sits third in the fiveteam Mainland Division, behind Prince George and Coquitlam. On Friday, the Eagles got the Damon James photo victory thanks in large part to Surrey Eagles Drew Best carries the puck against Alberni Valley. goaltender Edward Dyson, who stopped 38 of 40 shots.
