Constituency presidents exchange calls to quit with Cummins

BC Conservatives spar with leader Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

As many as 24 BC Conservative constituency association boards were threatening mass resignation to press for reform, before party leader John Cummins this week issued a public get-in-line-or-quit warning to dissidents. Allison Patton, president and potential candidate of the Surrey-White Rock BC Conservative constituency

association, told Peace Arch News the associations were unhappy with the way certain Cummins aides were running the party, but that they weren’t, at first, seeking the leader’s removal. Patton said the different association executives were considering resigning one after another – either daily or weekly – over a period of several weeks to generate as much pressure as possible to get the aides removed. Patton said the associations decided

to call for Cummins to quit after he told dissidents they had until noon Wednesday to get on side or resign. In response, Patton, together with Burnaby North BC Conservative constituency association president Ariane Eckardt, sent a letter to Cummins and party president Al Siebring calling on Cummins himself to resign. The letter – made public Tuesday – complains Cummins and his aides have been trying to force out execu-

tives of constituency associations. “Individual (associations) operating on their own began to get the feeling that you were disinterested in their concerns and, in many cases, that in fact it was your intent to replace them,” the Patton-Eckardt letter said. “This has been reinforced by your minions by email. This feeling was intensified by middlemen reported to speak on your behalf. › see page A4

City, RCMP defer comment to Fraser Health

White Rock’s man on the street moved by authorities Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Ryan Ashe homeless

White Rock’s most visible longtime street person was removed from a bus stop by police and paramedics last weekend, but it’s not known why and for how long. City officials deferred questions regarding Ryan Ashe’s removal to Fraser Health. Police would also not comment, other than to confirm they were involved. Citing confidentiality, Fraser Health spokesman Roy Thorpe-Dorward said he could not confirm if Ashe was taken to hospital under the Mental Health Act. At least one resident is wondering whether a recent

letter to the editor to Peace Arch News, criticizing the relocation of “the White Rock hobo… half a block at a time,” had anything to do with his removal. “It’s uncanny timing if it’s just coincidental,” said Lance Spurr. “Nothing happened for what, three decades, and the letter comes out and bam – they swooped down and got him. They never ever took him for vagrancy… never did anything to Ryan.” Susan Pichette had written PAN with concerns the homeless man was ruining her neighbourhood by taking over various areas around Hillcrest Plaza with his belongings and that he was defecating in public.

She described him as “dirty and scary looking” and suggested few of those who feel sorry for him would like him in their neighbourhood. “So why does he get to live in White Rock and make our area look ‘slummy’?” Pichette wrote in a letter published Sept. 27. In the days that followed, PAN received letters indicating disagreement with Pichette. A week after her letter was printed, police and paramedics removed Ashe from his latest ‘camp’ at a bus stop on Thrift Avenue just west of Johnston Road. › see page A4

pay extra in taxes or tolls to finance it, a lot of the demand disappears.” At best, Litman said, it may turn out that the demand-dampening effect of Highway 99 tolls, along with better transit, could avoid the need for the project altogether. He’s one of the observers who sees growing evidence for a concept called ‘peak car’ –  where a trend towards people driving less than in the past may mean it’s time to reconsider how fast road capacity needs to expand. Other transportation observers in the region see the province’s promise of a new crossing as one that’s likely to devour funding that could otherwise go to transit upgrades. “I think there will be a revolt if they continue to neglect transit and continue to pour billions of dollars into highways like this tunnel,” said transportation consultant and freeway expansion opponent Eric Doherty.

“TransLink has buses that can be put on the road if we had the funding,” Doherty said. “Rather than something decades away, it could be weeks away.” Stephen Rees, the B.C. Green Party’s transportation critic, warned building a giant new bridge to replace the tunnel would be an exercise in futility, simply shifting congestion a few kilometres down the road into Richmond. “You’ve simply taken the lineup that now forms on the south end of the tunnel and you’ve put it on the south end of the Oak Street Bridge,” he said. Rees rejected the notion that talk of tolling the tunnel will force the region into a broad and fair system of road pricing, rather than ad hoc tolling of just some crossings. “Road pricing is going to be horribly unpopular,” he said. “I just don’t see that one getting off the ground, democratically.”

Gary D’Haese is concerned with certain Fraser Health guidelines after a mental-health patient wandered into his family’s house last month.

White Rock resident questions policies after patient wanders into home

Intruder sparks supervision concerns Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A White Rock man has some questions about the supervision of mental-health patients at Peace Arch Hospital, after one of those patients showed up unexpectedly in his living room. Gary D’Haese said he was in the front yard of his Thrift Avenue home Sept. 21, when his wife emerged from inside with a stranger “following like a puppy” behind her. The young man had wandered into the couple’s home shortly after 7 p.m., as D’Haese’s wife was composing an email and his two young daughters were playing in a back room. The patient – who a Fraser Health official has confirmed had been given a short-term pass to leave the hospital – had apparently cut through the yard of D’Haese’s Goggs Avenue neighbour, hopped a fence and entered the home through an unlocked side door. Thankfully, the intruder, who told D’Haese he was sedated, made no attempt to cause the family harm – to reach D’Haese’s wife, he had to walk through the kitchen and past a fully stocked knife block.

D’Haese said his wife only realized the noises she’d been hearing weren’t being made by her husband when the intruder asked about a man named Dave, and if he could stay there. D’Haese wants to know why he – or any mental-health patient, for that matter – was left unsupervised. Citing confidentiality, Fraser Health spokesman Roy Thorpe-Dorward said he could not discuss specifics of the patient involved, but did say that patients who are in the hospital voluntarily, depending on their assessed level of need, are just as free to come and go as any other patient. “The goal, always, with patients is to create the least restrictive environment that is deemed to be safe and appropriate,” he said. A patient who violates the restrictions of a temporary pass would be reassessed to determine if a higher level of observation is needed, he added. Thorpe-Dorward noted that while it is common for someone who is dealing with mentalhealth issues to be medicated, “somebody who is on medication that in anyway made it unsafe

for them to leave the hospital wouldn’t be given a pass.” While D’Haese is thankful the incident ended quickly and without injury, he questioned the hospital’s liability in such cases, particularly if they end in the patient harming themselves or someone else. “Does the hospital not understand that they are responsible for the patients in their care?” he said in an email to Peace Arch News. “If a patient is harmed or harms someone, the hospital is open to a lawsuit.” D’Haese, who works as a peace officer for the City of Burnaby, said the man who entered his home Sept. 21 apologized several times, showed him his hospital bracelets and stated that he was from the psychiatric ward and still sedated. D’Haese kept him in the yard until police arrived and returned him to the hospital. White Rock RCMP confirmed that officers were called to the scene. The intruder was returned to the hospital. Thorpe-Dorward said Fraser Health is not investigating the incident.

Former TV reporter Ron Bencze, who was sentenced to four years in jail for sexual assaulting a young Surrey boy for several years, is appealing his sentence. Bencze, 45, pleaded guilty to one count of child sex assault in July. Eight other charges allegedly involving two other young people were stayed. During sentencing in August, B.C. Provincial Court Judge Robin Baird referred to the prolonged sex assault as “deviant and unlawful” and handed Bencze a prison term longer than the three years Crown prosecutors sought. Ron Bencze The crime to which Bencze appealing sentence pleaded guilty began when the victim, a friend of the family, was in primary school and only ended when he was 14 and his mom found explicit text messages between him and Bencze. During sentencing, the judge pointed to interviews Bencze had with a psychiatrist just last spring, where he still appeared to idealize the boy and painted himself as the submissive one in the relationship. “The accused seems to refer to the matter as if he was swept away by the... charisma of a child,” Baird said, adding he questioned whether the abuse would still be going on had Bencze not been caught. In an apology read in court by his lawyer, Bencze said: “I can only do what’s right and take responsibility for what I have done. I know I have no one to blame but myself.” Bencze was a journalist for years before being fired from Global BC in April 2011 after his arrest. - with files from CTV

Both sides extend ultimatums › from page A1 “We never knew if these confusing, contradictory verbal missives were with your blessing or the articulation of confused and uninformed individuals simply making claims to be representing you… because there was not then or now a clear chain of command that we have been asking for.” Patton told Peace Arch News the situation within the party was best described as “chaotic” with abrupt policy changes made without consulting the rank and file. There has been a “huge turnover” of Cummins aides, Patton said, all claiming to speak for the leader. When those aides decided the local association was not going in the proper direction,

(Party head office has not yet set a date to select candidates.) “It went from a three-page application to a 42-page application and a different group approving it,” Patton said. The letter from Patton and Eckardt said the internal divisions within the party caused the defection of John Martin, the former Conservative candidate in Chilliwack-Hope, to the BC Liberals last month, and the resignation by the party’s only sitting MLA, John van Dongen. In his high-noon ultimatum to

Letter initiates community debate › from page A1 “My wife sees him a couple times a day, and he was normal – for Ryan – on the morning they took him,” Spurr said. Spurr’s daughter, Meadow, was so motivated by Pichette’s letter, she joined fellow Earl Marriott Secondary students Madison Morris and Neil MacAlister in a peaceful protest in uptown White Rock Saturday. “When we read the letter… we just really felt that we wanted to get our own opinion out there,” the 18-year-old said. “We just disagreed with her wording of him.”

The trio held their protest for about three hours, first in Bryant Park and then by Hillcrest Plaza. Carrying signs that read ‘What was Ryan charged with?’, ‘We don’t feel sorry for marginalized people, we value them as human beings’ and ‘Are we allowed to sit here?’, they received both negative and positive response. “We just wanted to raise awareness of social injustice; how often people overlook homeless people or judge them harshly,” Meadow Spurr said. “We were surprised by how many people reacted… very negatively. Some people yelled at

us, some people shook their heads and gave us not nice faces.” She said she has no regrets about taking a stand, and hopes the effort raises awareness that the homeless are people, too. “I don’t think that anything is one-sided. Lots of things have different perspectives,” she said. “It could be positive in that we did get to raise awareness for our side of the coin.” Sunday, Pichette wrote PAN a second time, responding to her initial letter’s detractors and noting she was happy it initiated conversation on the issue (see page 7).

30 Anniversary Sale!

Staff Reporter

A proposed commercial and office space development on a 25-acre parcel of property at 20 Avenue, just east of Highway 99, cleared an important hurdle last week, winning approval in the form of an unanimous third reading at a city public hearing (Couns. Mary Martin and Judy Villeneuve were absent, according to the city clerk’s record). The $100-million Morgan Place Developments Ltd. project will include 25,953 sq. m (279,000 sq. ft.) of retail and restaurant uses and 9,662 sq. m (104,000 sq. ft.) of office space. It will have 1,330 parking stalls, 676 of which will be underground. Prior to the Oct. 1 public hearing, Thomas Ivanore of  Morgan Place Developments said he was in discussion with “several” anchor tenants, but wouldn’t say whether Target was one of them. A few smaller hurdles remain before the project gets its building permit, including sorting out concerns about the environmental impact of the development. According to the city clerk’s record of the meeting, Mayor Dianne Watts said she expects the developer will work with the Little Campbell Watershed Society to fine-tune the design.

As part of the development, 417 trees will be felled, leaving just 22 of the existing trees. Coun. Barinder Rasode had earlier expressed concern about the extent of the tree-cutting, but said the applicant won her support through promising to replace the trees on a four-to-one basis by planting 1600, far exceeding city

requirements. Rasode said it also appears the design of the development will improve protection of the nearby environmentally sensitive riparian areas because it will relocate an existing road that runs closer to the area than modern environmental standards allow. “We’re actually moving it back,” Rasode told Peace Arch News Wednesday. The project is scheduled to be completed by 2015. - with files from Kevin Diakiw

Beef recall is a chance for real change

L

ike a nasty computer virus, the XL Foods meat recall is casting a wider net and creating more problems as each day dawns. From the initial recall of beef processed by the Alberta plant between Aug. 24 and Sept. 5, the beef recall has now extended to thousands of stores. Hundreds of products from ground beef to prepared kebabs are on the do-not-eat (or cook-’til-charred) list, even though more than a month has passed since problems were first detected. As many as 10 E. coli cases in Alberta, Quebec and Newfoundland were linked to beef products from the XL Foods plant, where E. coli was initially detected on Sept. 4, and now a B.C. man has been identified as recovering from the illness caused by eating beef processed at XL Foods. This makes the XL Foods beef recall a national issue requiring a thorough investigation if confidence in the Canadian food system is to be restored. While not deadly as the Walkerton tragedy, in which seven people died from drinking E. colicontaminated water, many questions remain about who knew what and when — and what was done about it. The laxity of procedures at the plant and the length of time it took to identify the meat products affected could have put people’s lives in jeopardy. Initial stock-taking suggests some rigorous analysis of checks and re-checks of food processing systems at XL Foods is required. Other meat processing plants should be subject to review as well. This isn’t unnecessary red-tape and regulation; rather, it’s important for the industry to be able to guarantee that beef processed at plants is safe to eat. But questions also remain about the threeday lag between the time that Canadian Food Inspection Agency knew of problems of meat exported to the U.S. and when it began alerting the Canadian public. Could more have been done sooner? Let’s hope we find out. While the ever-expanding recall seems a bit like closing the door after the cow has left the barn, this could be an opportunity to shovel out the manure and start over with a fresh bed of hay.

Last week Is homelessness a real concern we asked... in your neighbourhood?

the art of getting your child to nap, your precious little cherub decides to go on a sleep strike. The hours are insane – I’ve never heard of a job that requires you to work 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There’s no such thing as sleeping in on a Saturday or spending a lazy Sunday on the couch with a good book. If you’re fortunate enough to have trustworthy family and friends nearby, you may be able to get a little break here and there, but let’s face it, most of the time spent away from baby is spent worrying about baby. Which brings me to my next point: the emotional investment. Some people care deeply about their jobs and have a hard time leaving their work stress at work. But being responsible for this miraculous little life – especially when you haven’t got a clue what you’re doing – can be more gut-wrenchingly stressful than anything I’ve ever experienced at work. Top that off with torture-calibre sleep deprivation and a roller coaster of hormones, and you’ve got a recipe for the mother of all meltdowns. If it sounds like I’m complaining, I’m really not. I love being on maternity leave, and have experienced the most awe-inspiring and humbling moments of my life over the past nine months. I’ve learned more about myself than I ever thought possible and have fallen head over heels in love with a blue-eyed little lady with her daddy’s devilish grin. But there are some days I’d give anything to be asking, ‘would you like fries with that?’ Melissa Smalley is a Peace Arch News writer, due to return from maternity leave in January.

“ “

Heroic journeys of three women Editor: “What I want is to be able to die in a manner that is consistent with the way I lived my life. I want to exercise control and die with dignity and with my sense of self and personal integrity intact.” So wrote Gloria Taylor, the 64-year-old Kelowna woman who recently won a Supreme Court of Canada case for the right to doctorassisted suicide. These are almost exactly the same words spoken by my sister, Leyanne, prior to taking her own life 10 years ago after a long and painful battle with stomach cancer at the age of 57, and sparking the three-year trial of Evelyn Martens who was accused of assisting her. These three courageous women demanded their rights as human beings to make the most important decisions of their lives, how to live and how to die. What sometimes gets lost in the controversy is that these humanrights pioneers were not advocating for suicide. They loved life and would, with all their heart, choose to live rather than to die. What they felt passionate about and fought for, each in their own way, was their right to make their own choices at a time when nobody else can choose for you. They were advocating as much for one’s right to suffer the prolonged deterioration of terminal illness as they were for the right to self-deliverance. How can those of us who have never faced the inevitability of our imminent and painful demise feel that we should be granted the right to impose our choices on those who are dealing with it in real time? This is when it is no longer the subject of hypothetical debate but the startling reality of your own mortality. In the end, Gloria didn’t have to make the choice she fought so hard for, but at least the choice was hers to make. These women are heroes, not because of the way they died but because of the way they lived. Marc Burchell, White Rock

Waste of effort complaining Editor: Just a quick response to all the whiners and complainers regarding our new waste program. If you all put a little less effort into complaining – and focus on solutions – your lives would be so much easier. Go out, buy a lock, drill a small hole in your waste-bin lid and container, and install lock. Of course you will have to remember your key when you fill your bin, which you will complain about as well. Hope this helps all the cranky, miserable people out there who spend their golden years complaining about nothing. Andrew Hoffman, Surrey

Responses to a letter-writer who said a homeless man makes her area look “slummy” spur even more reaction.

Time to talk about homelessness

Editor: Re: Passionate about compassion, Oct. 4 letters. I find it quite interesting – ironic, actually – that all of the letter writers who wrote in to chastise Susan Pichette’s opinion and viewpoint (He’s allowed to ruin our view, Sept. 27 letters) are also the same ones screaming the loudest in defense of the human rights of some questionable character who took up residence on our streets of this, “Our City by the Sea.” Pichette has her right to live peacefully, without intimidation, without filth, just as I do. How come our viewpoints and thoughts aren’t deemed as fundamental rights – or aren’t seen to be quite as valid or important? How come Ryan or George or Spike – or whatever his name is – how come he is garnering so much support and is seen as ‘more equal’ or more deserving in society? By the way, I do not know Susan Pichette, but I have experienced “the gentle hobo,” and I suspect I would much rather have Susan as my neighbour than him. Sandra Cooper, White Rock n After reading Susan Pichette’s letter, I was instantly overcome with a desire to get my own opinion out to the public, as well – that every human has worth and deserves respect. Some of my friends and I went to the park that Ryan inhabited until recently, with signs that voiced Contributed photo various statements Meadow Spurr (right) comments. about what we thought. We met a lot of opposition from the people who lived in the same area as Pichette. It was surprising and saddening. We then went to Johnston Road, still holding the signs. We saw far more support, but there were still individuals who shook their heads at us or yelled from their cars. The main argument that was thrown at us was, ‘Well, he really did smell awful!’ And yet, a man who was certainly not ‘homeless,’ stopped to talk to us – he had quite a strong odor about him. Does this mean that his opinion is any less valid? No. To have the base of an argument be ‘he smelled’ is like saying that if somebody were to stop taking showers, it would be acceptable for them to be denied basic human rights. I find it horrifying we live in an age when money and views have become more important than a human. Meadow Spurr, White Rock n I totally agree with Susan Pichette’s letter regarding the homeless man in White Rock. I can’t believe the sickly sweet, leftist psychobabble I have read in response to her letter. Well, actually, I can. Everyone is going on and on about how they help him. Well, you’re not doing such a great job because he’s still living on the street.

Some of you say he is gentle and educated, has a mental disability or a brain injury – who knows for sure? One day, he told me his name is “Spike Dice-Dice Spike” and that he has a chip implanted in his brain and is being tracked by the government. This I find to be scary! He told my neighbour he was a millionaire and owned the park he was sleeping in; that he donated it to the city. Who knows what he is capable of? He seems delusional to me, which can mean unpredictable at best! Sure, it is to be pitied and not scorned but, still, don’t I have rights? I find it unsettling when I attempt to wait at a bus stop that he sprawls upon, while he picks at his open sores and smokes his cigarettes. It is disgusting. He smells and does not pay property taxes like I, and many of you, do. He does not contribute to society in the least. I do not like his presence here. I am sure he’s a great guy, someone’s son. But, still, I have rights, too. We all do. Everyone is so quick to tout the rights and compassion of this man and to state that the initial letter-writer has no empathy or compassion. Man, you’re quick to demonize her for her opinion, which she has a right to. I have empathy and compassion for all living things – to a point. There are many places he can go for assistance. He has made the choice not to. If you think he’s so wonderful, so gentle, invite him into your home, put a tent in your yard and offer him up your shower. We’ll see how far your compassion goes then! Frank Hutchinson, White Rock n “There go I but for the grace of God.” Audrey Strong, White Rock n Thank you to the editor for making a heading that made me look bad, as it was out of context and had nothing really to do with the problem I wrote about. Many thanks to the people who called me and thanked me for opening up a problem that needs to be addressed. I am aware he has been around for 25 years, as I have lived in the area longer than that. Shame on all you people who have been aware of the situation for so long and have done nothing at all. If he is brain-damaged and mentally ill, how can he be aware that he is entitled to a warm bed, a bathroom with a shower, hot meals and treatment for his illness? He has got alternatives, but apparently he refuses help. Try picking up the phone, Patricia, and see if anything happens. It won’t; I’ve tried. Michelle can come and pick him up to go live on her block, but he won’t go. Has Bernice seen him go to the bathroom behind the bakery? Does Judi know if he pays taxes like everyone else? So to all the ‘compassionate’ people who know him, why have you not helped him when it is obvious he needs help? There is no kindness to leave him there. Up to now he has lived around Johnston Road in front of stores and restaurants who can’t complain publicly as they would lose a lot of business to the naysayers. I do feel badly for him, but it “takes a village” to help him. So now that I have openly talked about it, maybe he will get a life that he deserves. Susan Pichette, White Rock

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Sid Bentley’s love of world religions has left a legacy

Educator reflects on life’s last chapter Alex Browne

S

Staff Reporter

Alex Browne photo

Peninsula educator Sid Bentley’s belief in a higher power – regardless of specific religion – brings him peace as he reflects on his life. Asked how his studies transformed him, he said they ultimately made him a “universalist” – believing in the presence of God or a higher power but not believing such a divinity is the exclusive property of any one faith. All world religions extol peace, love and understanding, he noted – no matter how much their teachings may be subverted by the violent antagonism of human beings. Following his retirement, Bentley – who wrote the highly-regarded guide The Religions of Our Neighbours (about to go into a second edition, thanks to Zul Mehta of Sure Print and Copy Centre) – continued to contribute to multifaith understanding through regular courses at Kwantlen University, and for schools and faith communities, and in weekly appearances on Vision TV. “His work has touched the lives of thousands, and enriched the community of Surrey,” Dalley said, adding that the groundwork laid by Bentley has made many subsequent projects, like the current Surrey Interfaith Council, possible. It was a result that couldn’t have been predicted when he started his journey as one of a family of seven children of an

English-born father and mother, growing up in Regina during the hard times of the Depression of the 1930s. By the time he reached the age of 16, in the first year of the Second World War, Bentley was a good student who was allowed to skip exams because his grades were high. But he was also footloose, and – as he admits now – “a pain in the ass for my father.” “I was telling him about an article in the paper about them needing workers in the B.C. shipyards and paying travel expenses for them and I didn’t get any further – he said ‘go.’” Claiming he was 17, Bentley found work in the shipyards, and later became a crew member of a coastal freighter shipping canned salmon and other supplies to communities in B.C. and up to Alaska. “What you did when you went ashore was drank, played poker, swore and told each other lies,” he said. “I’ve always been a student, so I started reading.” Unable to get a library card because he had no fixed address, Bentley found a used bookstore in Vancouver that would sell him books and buy them back after he’d read them.

“The guy who owned the store was a book nut – anyone who owns a used bookstore is a ‘bookie’ – and he started giving advice on books I might be interested in reading. He was good – that’s what got me interested in reading about world religions.” When he married Shirley, after the war ended, he went to work in sawmills, starting as green chain worker and graduating to grader, tally man and then lumber inspector. But he continued to meet people – like a friend who had been raised a Catholic – who stimulated his interest in religions. The turning point came for him after they settled in Saanich and he had switched to a sales career, he said. “One day, I looked at my life and decided I was a parasite,” he said. “I was living in this place called Earth, but I was a taker – I wasn’t giving anything. I decided the most important people in society were good teachers.” He started working as a milkman and taking night school courses in Victoria so he could complete high school and train as a teacher at UBC.

id Bentley put it succinctly. “The guy upstairs had a plan for me,” he said, looking back on a full and rewarding life while propped up in a bed on the sixth floor of Peace Arch Hospital. The well-known Surrey educator and expert on world religions, now in his 88th year, is typically matter-of-fact about being in the palliative care ward. “There’s only one way to go from here,” he said, jabbing several times at the ceiling with his thumb. But like many of the pronouncements he made in a conversation last week with a reporter – joined by good friend and latterday colleague David Dalley, co-ordinator of the Surrey Neighbouring Faiths Program – there was a twinkle in his eye as he spoke. That twinkle, and a wan, yet frequent, smile, provide an enduring impression of Bentley that overrides the frailness of the body and the thin voice that issues from it. A teacher – not a preacher – Bentley emanates a quietly spiritual presence, even though reticent to discuss his own faith. He’s also a plain-spoken pragmatist who did his growing up in the rough and tumble world of the Merchant Navy during the Second World War, and provided for wife Shirley and their two sons and daughter with a variety of jobs – including a 10-year stint in sawmills and later working as an insurance and truck salesman. He even toiled as a milkman, he said, while studying to complete high school so he could train to become a teacher. A born storyteller, Bentley also has a knack for connecting with people, which served him well when he designed and taught a course on world religions at William Beagle Junior Secondary (now David Brankin Elementary) in North Surrey. The highly popular Grade 8 course was a runaway hit, winning provincial recognition and inspiring generations of multi-cultural students in Surrey to learn more about their own and each others’ religions. “It really got out of hand,” he recalled, with a chuckle, Thursday. Secret of the success of the course, aside from Bentley’s passionate interest in the subject, was his ability to relate the basic tenets of each religion in personal terms, and follow up his lessons with a rich, but untapped, resource of guest speakers drawn from Surrey’s various faith communities. “I didn’t have to go outside of Surrey,” he said. “I had great people as speakers, including imams, Tibetan lamas and rabbis. I’d tell them, for example, don’t talk to the kids about Judaism – I’ll cover that – talk to them about being a Jew.” It was as much a journey of discovery for Bentley as it was for his students, he acknowledges.

› from page A11 people offered help and doors opened for him to pursue his calling – too many times for him to doubt some kind of divine intervention. When Shirley became pregnant with their third child and it looked like he’d have to put his education on hold, a self-made millionaire who’d befriended him offered to provide a $250 per month in addition to his other income, provided he stayed in school. “I think of him as my ‘angel,’” Bentley said. “He thought becoming a teacher was the most wonderful thing one could do. When I wanted to repay him, he refused, saying ‘find somebody who needs it and pay it forward.’” It’s a course he’s followed ever since, he added. When he graduated UBC in the 1960s, there was a sense of rightness to his first teacher placement at William Beagle. And Bentley was well ahead of the curve in sensing how

In retirement, Sid Bentley volunteered his time picking fruit, which he donated to the food bank. Surrey would evolve as a multicultural community. When he suggested his world religions course, only two weeks after he came to the school, it was eagerly embraced by the principal, and Bentley never looked back.

But of all the successes he’s enjoyed, one tribute sticks in his mind, he said. He remembers one year, at a parent-teacher gathering at the end of the course, being approached by a IndoCanadian woman who clasped his hand and

started to cry. Due to family circumstances, her son had not been raised a Sikh, she explained, and that had always disturbed and saddened her. And while she’d had her doubts about what Bentley would teach him in the course, they had been dispelled when her son came home excited about his Sikh heritage for the first time. “She said, ‘You teach Sikhism in an honest and open way,’” he recalled. “My son has decided to get baptised and become a Sikh – and I’m so happy that it is you who have given him back his Sikhism.’” Satisfied that he has made a meaningful contribution to the sum of understanding, promoting sharing rather than hatred, Bentley remains philosophical about entering the final chapter of life’s journey. “Que sera, sera,” he said. “Life’s been good to me. I’ve had a wonderful life – I keep saying that, but it’s true.”

Blue box recycling and the Green Can program continue to be collected weekly. As the majority of our waste can be recycled, please focus on the weekly recycling and green waste programs and help reduce the amount of waste we send to the landfill. It’s easy to have a Green Can! • Use any plastic garbage can (60 liters or less) with a secure lid (same as used for yard trimmings). Can does not have to be green. • Collect all food scraps in a kitchen food scraps container. Save money by reusing an ice cream bucket or other lidded container. • Empty food scraps into the Green Can. You can line your Green Can with a paper kraft bag to help keep it clean – bags are recommended and are available to purchase at all City facilities. Sorry, plastic bio-degradable bags are NOT currently accepted at local processing facilities. • The Green Can is picked up every week – make sure the decal is facing the street. • Please note, the Green Can program is only available to single family dwellings at this time.

Cloverdale collector unveils vintage service station

Car buff pumps up town’s heritage Jennifer Lang Black Press

Classic car collector Harold Wellenbrink, has created a replica Shell service station in the quiet backyard of his Cloverdale home. Last month, he and wife Myrna hosted the Surrey Heritage Society’s meeting. It was a chance for members to feast their eyes on a genuine Cloverdale hidden gem – and get down to business. The society acquired a fleet of vintage vehicles from the Teamsters Truck Museum earlier this year and is working to open the B.C. Transportation Heritage Centre to the public. Wellenbrink, 79, is a Greater Vancouver Motorsport Pioneers Society Hall of Famer who’s spent the last 60 years restoring cars and related collectibles. “I’ve done it all my life,” he said. He’s big fan of the 1950s and ’60s custom car era. These days, he’s down to just two classic cars – a 1952 Hudson Wasp and the 1952 Meteor Custom cruiser, “Cool Blue” – and they’re beauts. He’s been car crazy since he purchased his first vehicle in his teens. He grew up on a dairy farm near Campbell River and worked for BC Tel until his retirement. The gas station took a year to build. He said he had two choices – go with Shell or British America, which used a lot of red, CANADIAN CHRISTIAN MEDITATION COMMUNITY

A coin toss settled it. “I’ve got quite a Shell collection here,” he said, pausing to show off an impressive collection of memorabilia, safeguarded inside a converted gas pump that lights up like a Christmas tree. “It’s got a real history.” His tidy gas station has everything from vintage road maps to a pinball machine,

He developed the Learning Adventure Co-op to inspire students through a series of hikes, camping and outdoor adventures, which developed a valuable sense of community that transferred back to the classroom. As the aboriginal teacher advocate in the school, he also works with about 70 aboriginal students. Rempel, a Langley resident, was lauded for helping teachers and students integrate aboriginal content into lessons, as well as going above and behind to support students, including visiting homes when necessary. “Jonathan is a young, tenacious, creative and caring teacher who deserves to be recognized for the wonderful work he is doing with students who have been abandoned by the system. He is a model for others because he does whatever it takes to engage students and motivate them to learn,” said a colleague.

Jonathan Rempel with PM Stephen Harper. Danielle Jimeno, childcare director at A Place to Grow Childcare Centre near 137 Street and 96 Avenue, was recognized for her work in early childhood education. Her philosophy of centering activities on what interests the children rather than what has been planned was noted, as was her push to have her team always consider how a child will learn best. The Surrey resident introduced an activity of documenting each child’s story through photos, allowing parents to feel more connected, makes a point to communicate with parents daily, and adjusts to families’ needs by offering flexible schedules and employing multilingual staff.

“As a leader in the community, Danielle strives to seek out research and evidence of best practices, of how we can improve and how programs can be enhanced… she is inquisitive and provides insight to issues through dialogue and questioning,” said a colleague. The Prime Minister’s Awards for Teaching Excellence honour outstanding elementary and secondary school teachers who, through the innovative use of information and communications technologies in the classroom, help students develop the knowledge and skills to succeed in the digital economy.

drinking and alcohol. Christine Jackson, of RTI International, who carried out a recent study about parents allowing kids to sip small amounts of alcohol, said: “It is possible that an early introduction to alcohol, even when it is limited to sips and even when it is meant to discourage child interest in alcohol, could backfire and lead to more drinking later on.” Becoming aware about the dangers and risks of binge drinking is the first step. Realizing the importance of moderation and alternatives to alcoholic drinks is equally

important.

He’s been at his post since the beginning of September, but Dr. Alan Davis was officially sworn in as the new president and vicechancellor of Kwantlen Polytechnic University at a ceremony last week. During his “installation” at the Surrey campus on 72 Avenue, Davis said though he started at Kwantlen about a month ago, he’s only now beginning to understand the “excitement and complexity” of what lies ahead. Telling personal anecdotes and

Davis is the sixth president of the institution, which has campuses in Surrey, Langley and Richmond. Representatives of staff, faculty and students each delivered formal greetings to the new president and members of the Kwantlen First Alan Davis Nation, whose land the university new president is on, also performed the Kwantlen Honour Song to welcome Davis.

Elgin Park Secondary class interviews retired teachers

Students collect oral history of Surrey schools Alex Browne

G

Staff Reporter

rade 10 students at Elgin Park Secondary got an insight into local history last week – but not from the usual viewpoint. The students, hand-picked by teacher Carolyn Pedersen, were interviewing members of the Surrey Retired Teachers’ Association on their experiences on teaching in Surrey from the 1940s to the 1990s. It’s part of an oral history project the association’s Heritage Committee is undertaking with the support of a federal New Horizons For Seniors grant. Some 10 recorded interviews were done in the school library Oct. 2. “We’re hoping for a total of 40 interviews over four sessions,” committee member Alice Tiles said. “We’re trying to have them downloaded and put on CDs, and hopefully transcribed.” The former teachers who discussed their experiences in a morning session ranged from Peggy Hansen, who started her career with the school district in 1945, to Lloyd Foncier, who described how administration of schools changed from the early 1960s to the present. It’s an area of local history that hasn’t been thoroughly documented, and it’s disappearing as fast as old schools are closed and the resource of veteran teachers diminishes with each passing year, committee member Karen Sucheski said. “We thought it was really important to get the project going,” she said. “We lost two retired teachers last year that we really wanted to interview.”

Elgin Park Secondary Grade 10 student Christa Andersen with Peggy Hansen last week, as part of a history project. Fortunately, the 800-member association is not neglected by the school district, Tiles said, adding that they have been given the use of a classroom at the decommissioned Grandview Heights Elementary. The students did a great job of interviewing them, the retired teachers agreed. Foncier said his interviewer, Rachel Wang,

According to Kerry Vanderzalm of Art Knapp Plantland, most perennials, as well as trees and shrubs, do better in the long run when planted in the fall. “In the fall, your plants will go into warm soil and benefit from high moisture levels, which is ideal for root development,” he said. “What’s more, their roots will continue to develop for most of the winter season here on the south coast, and will be thoroughly established by the following summer.” Fall is also a very good time to lime your lawn to correct the soil’s pH balance and encourage a healthy green lawn, free of moss, next spring, Vanderzalm said, adding that the new organic garden lime derived from egg shells would be good to try. Speaking of your lawn, Vanderzalm noted that fall and winter feeder lawn fertilizer helps to green up the lawn now and build a strong, deep root system capable of storing nutrients to help withstand winter stresses and ensure your lawn emerges green than ever when spring appears. Cam Martin at Potters said

Don’t stop gardening once the weather gets chilly. Now is the perfect time to prepare your garden for winter. that some winterization of the garden can begin in the fall, for instance, a veggie can be cleared and a cover crop, such as rye, can be sewn into the soil. “The fall rye will grow over the unused garden space and can be turned back into the soil in the spring as a natural way to get nitrogen back into the soil,” Martin said, noting the rye also helps with soil erosion and deterring weed growth. And if it just seems like it’s too dismal to venture outside

to your garden, brighten up the home with flowers and foliage. “Orchids are a favourite of mine, they bloom effortlessly for months,” Martin said. Martin also reminds gardeners to not forget about planting spring flowering bulbs in their containers. “Tulips, daffodils and hyacinths will give rise to wonderful colours in the spring,” he said. Jean Kuwabara at West Coast Gardens agrees early fall is a great time to plant new plants

thanks to the warm soil. As well, as the fall kicks in it’s the perfect time to see which areas in your garden require more interest and pizzazz. “Garden stores are now stocking plants that look great in fall and winter,” Jean said. “So if you remember that your garden was nothing but a bare patch of earth last winter, now is the time to research and find cold-weather beauties.” As for the non-winter hardy plants, such as cannas, pelargo-

niums and non-hardy succulents that need to be brought indoors, Jean advises you spray the plants with an insecticidal soap to discourage unwanted hitchhikers, such as aphids. It’s also important to help adjust the plant to the conditions of an indoor life. “Once indoors, the plants will likely receive a reduced amount of light, so cut back the foliage by about a third because the plant cannot support all of the foliage on reduced light,” Jean said. “Throughout the winter, keep soil barely moist and do not fertilize.” When it comes to pruning your raspberry, blackberry and gooseberry plants, it’s important to remove the canes that already fruited this summer, Jean notes, as they will only bear fruit on new canes each year. For those untidy-looking perennials that lack decorative seed heads, such as phlox, delphiniums and hosts, Jean advises to remove spent stems to visually neaten up your garden beds. Finally, your garden won’t fare very well if you’re not in good health! “In cold weather, it’s easy to overstrain stiff muscles. Take the time do some pre-stretching of your muscles and shift your position often,” Jean said. “Weeding is often the culprit for sore backs, so place weeds into a smaller receptacle so that you are forced to dump them often, thereby changing your posture frequently.”

pedestal vase with some leaves and gourds or a candle. A personal favourite the home decor expert carries at her store is mini velvet pumpkins with real pumpkin stems placed on each guest’s plate for a fall supper. Fall leaves change colour due to lack of light, so Ingrid suggests bringing in some light and fun into the house for Halloween using tiny, orange lights. “They come in strands of 35 and can easily go on the autumn-inspired mini twig trees we stock, in a vase, or around anything you want to add a fun, warm hint of fall. We have customers who buy them for Thanksgiving and wind them through branches on the mantle, or even just place them in a basket with a few pinecones to look amazing.” For Kandal, nothing says warmth, family and “getting back to nature” more than fall. “It’s a time to reunite with those we haven’t seen and to reconnect with our roots. Warmth brought into your home through colour helps to paint the background to those important times in our lives,” she said. Pam from Hudson Madison suggests taking pumpkins and creating a centrepiece based off of fall’s favourite vegetable. “A new centerpiece could be that pumpkin filled with flowers or floating candles. Spray the pumpkin in your color scheme of tomato red

or purple to think outside the box,” she said. “The metallics are always a favorite too.” For Briar Codesmith, taking a staple piece, like a great bowl, and transforming it each season in a new centrepiece – low enough to encourage conversation – is always a great bet. “One fall, I once went to six different grocery stores to get enough white gourds to fill a wooden bowl,” she said. “It was inexpensive and looked perfect for fall with the shades and tones of white and great texture.” She also notes that fall-style isn’t all about what you can see. “It’s all about the five senses – sight, touch, smell, taste and sound,” she said. “Envelope your home in the fall and it brings back warm family memories.”

here is no doubt that the big bins given to Surrey residents as part of the city’s new waste management initiative have caused a few complaints. For Daphane LeClaire, her main problem was where to put the bins and how she could best cover them up. The longtime Surrey resident, who has a background in finished carpentry and in the furniture industry, put her skills to use and decided to create a cover for the bins, with the help of her husband. After much research online, LeClaire and her husband used ideas from abroad in the U.K. to create their own product made out of sustainable western red cedar. “We made one for our garbage bins, then we had friends over and they asked if they could have one made. Then their friends asked and it went from there,” LeClaire said. “It’s made from a green, sustainable product and it helps make the bins look nice. A lot of people have mentioned they think they are unsightly, so this solves

box lid is opened. Best of all, because LeClaire and her husband used red cedar, the boxes smell great. “It has a beautiful cedar smell,” she said.

ainting is a great way to change up the home. Whether it’s just one wall or the whole house, there are endless options to find a style that reflects you. Lee McCann from Dulux Paints says that for fall, some of the most popular colours inlcude squash colours, pumpkin and caramel. The warm colours reflect the seasonal change and mimic the shades seen outside. But Lee notes, colours should be a reflection of yourself not the season, and when it comes to painting, your home is a blank canvas. “Don’t be so concerned with resale of your home, choose colours you love that work for you and your family,” Lee said. “You can kick it up using colour. It’s easy and affordable to change.” And if you’re stumped on choosing a colour, Lee suggests taking a look at the palette of colours in your house, including artwork or even bedding. You can even start by choosing the mood you want to set for the room.

Painting is an easy and affordable way to change the home. Certain families of colours say different things and can create a particular atmosphere. Here are some common colours and what they can do for design. Green: If the desire is for a relaxing, all-natural retreat, green may very well be the colour to choose. Green’s connection to nature makes the shade refreshing and soothing to the eye. It can instantly create a calming effect in any space and homeowners need not worry about going overboard with shades of green. Complementary colours to green include shades of red and pink. Use this accent colour in draperies or on prints. Fill a vase with magenta-

coloured blooms and add a special pop of colour. Blue: Another calming colour is blue. It can make a room serene and soothing. Blue is a cool colour, which means it can also be used in abundance with little worry. Make a bedroom a quiet retreat with the right shade of blue. A touch of orange or peach blends well with blue. Red: An energizing and dramatic colour, red demands attention. It’s stimulating and provocative, and some people love an entire room of red. However, to others red can be overwhelming. But red can be used on an accent wall or sparingly to spruce up a neutral colour scheme.

911 turns kids into lifesavers As acting unit chief for BC Ambulance Service in White Rock/Surrey, Renee MacCarron offers this advice to the families she serves. Renee MacCarron

Special to Peace Arch News

The mother of a fouryear-old child faints. The child is the only other person at home. He calls 911. Paramedics take the mother to hospital. She recovers and rejoins her family. Such a simple scenario that could have gone so wrong. Brad Mitchell, of BC Ambulance Service, was the charge dispatcher on duty several months ago when the call described above came in. While the child had called 911, he didn’t know his address. “Teaching your child to call 911 and to know their home address

is one of the most important things you can do to help keep you and your loved ones safe at home,” Mitchell said. “And it’s something that I have done with my children. I began when they were very young: What’s your whole name? What is your mommy’s name? Where do you live?” “Even very young children can learn to call 911,” said Dr. Michal Fedeles, manager, learning design for BCAS. “Start with the basics when your child is three or four; role-play some simple scenarios with your child… without actually calling 911. Revisit the issue every year, as your child becomes more mature and aware of his or her surroundings and abilities.” › see page A35

› from page A34 It’s a good idea to talk to your children about calling 911 once a year. Fall is a good time because school starts and household routines change. “Children can grasp the concept of an emergency situation – whether someone is unresponsive from a fall or from fainting, if a fire starts or if someone is breaking into your home,” said Fedeles. “Of course, tailor the discussion to your child based on whether they’re preschool age or a teenager.” It’s also a good idea to let a child know the questions to expect when they call 911. “Dispatchers will ask where you are calling from, what’s your address, if the person you’re calling about is awake,” said Mitchell. Parents or child care providers should also be sure to stress that the child not hang up. Dispatchers will stay connected with the child until paramedics arrive; they can be a calming influence for the child as well as provide instructions.

Weavers and Spinners prepare for upcoming show

A flare for spinning Alex Browne

T

Arts Reporter

he organization may have been around for a long time – but it’s proven as durable as well-woven fab-

ric. Peace Arch Weavers and Spinners Guild’s (PAWS) annual Fibre Flare sale and exhibit returns Oct. 20-21 (10 a.m.-4 p.m. each day) at Ocean Park Community Hall, 1577 128 St. – offering a full range of one-of-a-kind handwoven, handspun, felted and knitted items. And – as a theme wall in the exhibit will point out – the official history of the organization goes back all of 45 years. “But it was probably going on longer than that with the founding members before they formally established it,” noted PAWS’ Inge Langmann at a pre-show preview at Surrey Museum, where the organization keeps, and works on, its looms and spinning wheels, built to traditional designs that date back as far as the medieval period. It’s already been six years since PAWS moved to the museum from its former home at the Stewart Farmhouse on Crescent Road, Langmann added. “We were probably there for the better part of our existence,” she said. “But when the city built the new museum, we were offered this space – and we have a meeting room in the archives, too.” The change in venue has not had a negative impact on membership, which has historically drawn from White Rock, Surrey, Langley and Washington State, Langmann said. “We now have 90 members, so we’re growing by leaps and bounds,” she said. “A lot of younger people have joined, a lot of housewives. Some like basic weaving and spinning, and some are very artistic in what

Weavers and Spinners’ member Lindsay Gorman uses a traditional spinning wheel. they’re doing.” Many of the products of members will be on sale at Fibre Flare, Langmann said, but buyers can be assured that every item has undergone rigorous jurying before going in the show. “We don’t judge on artistic merits, but we look at craftsmanship and how the work is

finished,” Langmann said. “And all the items are washed, so whatever shrinkage is going to occur has already happened.” Typical of the new blood that has come into the guild is Lindsay Gorman, who was encouraged to join in March by her aunt, Jeanette Banta, a keen weaver.

“I’ve been a big knitter for a long time,” she said. “I got into a car accident and got stuck at home – in fact my mom says I knitted my brain back together, because I had a brain injury from the accident.” Exposure to historic techniques of weaving and spinning through the guild soon provided a new obsession, she said. “If you want the wool, you’ve got to spin, and if you want to spin, you’ve got to dye, and if you want to dye, you’ve got to weave,” she said of the progression. “I’d say by the look of my fibre closet it’s an addiction – but it’s a historical addiction. People became addicted to it out of necessity.” Working with weaving and spinning also has a tangible appeal that is not like the click, click, click of virtual reality, Gorman said. “When the power has gone out, we don’t stop working,” Langmann observed. “It’s self-sustaining,” Gorman said. “A lot of young women are getting off Facebook – they want to get together and knit and have a community.” “It was bound to happen,” said Langmann. “Everything goes in a cycle.” Ironically, some of the traditions PAWS is preserving can be seen as forerunners of the computer age. The Jacquard loom at the Surrey Museum, for example is a replica of the original invented in France in the late 1700s, which used a hole card system to control the loom harness, reproducing the same decorative pattern consistently. “When we do tours, we tell the kids that’s the beginning of computers,” Langmann said. “They’re always amazed.” But the history of weaving goes back centuries before that – and the basic loom arrangement of harness and pedals has not really varied since ancient times, Langmann said. “I think it all started when people started to settle down and become farmers,” she said. “They started caring for animals and there was the question of what to do with the wool when they sheared the sheep.” “We know they were spinning flax for the Pharaohs,” said PAWS member Elly Tompe. “The mummies were wrapped in linen – every culture had weaving at one point or another.”

Rather it speaks to doors to the all-important the seriousness with which U.S. market. he takes his music. The Ottawa born-and-raised Jones – “When people see a show, they want whose incisive vocals and catchy R&B, to see a band that stands out on stage,” rockabilly and country-influenced he said. “With too many bands, they originals add a contemporary edge to might be great musicians, but when the blues tradition – is also known they walk out on stage they don’t necfor prodigious guitar chops that have essarily present themselves to the best drawn comparisons with masters like advantage.

18 in 1998, said he had the benefit of growing up in a town that hosted a huge annual blues festival. After spending some of his adolescence being a drummer in the thrall of rockers like Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix and Deep Purple, he began to appreciate the roots of the music. “I realized that everything pointed back to the blues and classic guys like Muddy Waters, B.B. King and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Each new player you discover leads you to something else.” But while the roots of the music are tremendously important to him, he still reserves the right to pursue his own sound. “After six records, you find out it’s not about trying to sound like Muddy Waters, it’s about being yourself. We still play the blues and have a lot of connections to the roots, but there is a contemporary side to it. “Some of the hard-core blues fans, the traditionalists, might not appreciate this and that – but I’ll take my chances.” Tickets for the White Rock Blues Society are available from Tapestry Music, Surfside Music, online at http://tickets.surrey.ca or call 604542-6515.

Semiahmoo Arts has announced the winning entries in its Summery Writing Contest. First prize went to David Blinkhorn for his poem Vision/ Re-vision; second to Lee Belliveau for her poem Kwomais; and third to M.S. Chapman for a story called Drifting. Honorable mentions were awarded to Connie Wadge and Gloria Tiede, who will receive year-long memberships to Semiahmoo Arts. While organizers were hoping to have the three winning entries read at the opening ceremonies for a labyrinth being built in Kwomais Point Park, as those will not take place until the spring, they will instead be read at 1:30 p.m. Saturday (Oct. 13), as part of events scheduled for between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. The theme of the writing contest was vision.

South Fraser girls soccer team finishes seventh

Surrey teams on national podium Rick Kupchuk Black Press

Thompson Rivers University Wolfpack’s Jacob Tricarico (right) and Brad Gunter (left) jump up to block a ball at the net during a men’s university volleyball game against Trinity Western University Friday night at Earl Marriott Secondary. Trinity Western won the match 3-1.

Seeking a second consecutive Jubilee Trophy as national women’s soccer champions, Surrey United was the dominant team through round robin play. But in the final, United came out second best, falling 1-0 to Ontario’s North London Galaxy in Monday afternoon’s championship game in Winnipeg. Cloverdale-based United was the only team with a perfect record after round robin play, easily winning their group with four wins in as many games, outscoring the opposition 17-0. Surrey clinched first place in their group Saturday and had an off day before the final, while North London needed a win Sunday to go to 3-0-1 (won-lost-tied) and finish atop their group. United began their march to the final with a 5-0 win over the WSA All-stars on Wednesday, getting two goals from Nicole Stewart and one each from April Coffin, Katie Thorlakson and Julia Lauzon. Their second win was a 1-0 victory over the Edmonton Angels Thursday, with Rachael Pelat netting the United goal. Pelat had a hat trick in Friday’s 7-0 romp past Yellowknife. Thorlakson, Stewart, Alexandra Benes and Chelsey Hannesson were the other goal scorers. Even with a perfect record, Saturday’s game against a 3-0 Hollandia Impact team from Saskatchewan decided first place in the group and a berth in the Jubilee Trophy final. The game was not close, as Surrey cruised to a 4-0 win. n In its first trip to the Challenge Cup national championship competition in close to a decade, Surrey United’s men’s team placed fifth at the 12-team tournament last weekend in Winnipeg. Surrey had a win and a loss in round robin play, opening with a 3-1 victory over the defending national champion HUSA Alumni of Saskatoon. Colin Streckmann, Steve McAuley and Ryan Reynolds were the Surrey goal scorers. In a game Friday that would

decide top spot in Group B, United fell 2-1 to Edmonton Scottish. Jeff Clarke netted the Surrey goal. In the playoff round, Surrey was eliminated from championship contention with a 4-0 loss to Royal Select Beauport of Quebec on Saturday. In consolation play, they blanked Halifax City 4-0 on Sunday. United then clinched a fifthplace finish with a 1-0 win over Ontario’s AEK London on Monday afternoon. South Surrey’s Sean Einersson tallied for United. n Surrey United won a national title at the boys Under-16 Cup in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. United defeated the Erin Mills Eagles of Ontario 5-3 in penalties after the two sides played to a draw in Monday’s championship game. Lucas Johnson earned the shutout in the Surrey goal. Hugo Vieira, Josh Taylor, Bavi Dhaliwal, Mathew Gains and Obraj Khela scored in the shootout for Surrey, while Johnson stopped one of four Ontario shots. United was a perfect 4-0 in round robin play, outscoring the opposition 17-2. n Surrey United placed sixth at the boys under-14 national tournament in Vaughn, Ont. United split their two round robin games, defeating Mount Pearl of Newfoundland and Labrador 2-0 on a pair of goals by Wyatt Gilbert, before losing 4-1 to Quebec’s Lanaudiere-Centre. United fell 4-0 to the North Mississauga Panthers in the quarterfinal round of the playoffs, then blanked the Sherwood Parkdale Rangers of Prince Edward Island 10-0 on consolation play. n At U14 girls nationals, also in Vaughn, Ont., Semiahmoo Peninsula-based South Fraser FC placed seventh. They were knocked from title contention Sunday, after losing to Quebec Armada Chaudiere-Est on penalty kicks. Following the loss, South Fraser rebounded Monday with a 2-0 win over the Saskatchewan provincial champions.

Surrey rebounds after Friday loss to Prince George Spruce Kings

Stenerson leads Eagles to win over Cents Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

A three-point performance from Michael Stenerson helped salvage what would have been a winless Thanksgiving weekend for the Surrey Eagles. Stenerson, a Semiahmoo Minor Hockey alum, scored twice and added an assist to lead his hometown Eagles to a 5-1 win over the visiting Merritt Centennials Sunday afternoon at South Surrey Arena. The win salvaged a split for the Eagles, who Michael Stenerson lost 4-1 Friday at home to the Surrey Eagles Prince George Spruce Kings, despite a 35-save performance from rookie goaltender Glenn Ferguson. Through the first five weekends of the BC Hockey League’s regular season, Surrey sits with a 5-4-0-1 record, which, while still above .500, is tied for last in the tight five-team Mainland Division; Coquitlam sits first with two more points. Against Prince George Friday, the visitors never trailed in the game, going up 1-0 when Liam

Damon James photo

Surrey Eagles’ defenceman Devon Toews battles for the puck with Merritt’s Sebastian Pare Sunday. Board scored in the final minute of the first period. In the second, Jake LeBrun made it 2-0, and Spruce Kings’ Bryant Christian and Tyson Witala –  on the power play – rounded out the scoring in

the third. The Eagles’ lone goal came off the stick of defenceman Devon Toews, who scored on a powerplay near the end of the second period. Demico Hannoun and

Trevor Cameron – the latter fresh off a three-game suspension for participating in a staged fight Sept. 21 against Victoria – picked up assists on Toews’ marker, which was his third of the year.

The Eagles’ fortunes turned around Sunday afternoon against Merritt, however, thanks in large part to a four-goal second period. After Stefan Burzan gave the home team a 1-0 lead with less than four minutes remaining in the first frame, Cameron and Stenerson alternated goals, scoring twice each, including once apiece on the power play. The offensive outburst chased Merritt’s starting netminder Tyler Steel from the crease after allowing four goals on 22 shots; he was replaced by Russell Sanderson, who stopped seven of eight the rest of the way. Merritt’s only goal came three minutes into the third period when Dylan Chanter added a power-play goal to make it 5-1 Eagles. In addition to the Stenerson’s three-point performance and Cameron’s two goals, Brett Mulcahy and Drew Best each had two assists for Surrey. Michael Santaguida earned the win between the pipes, stopping 34 of 35 shots on goal. After earning splits in each weekend so far this season, the Eagles are assured of not repeating the feat this week, as they have just one game on the schedule. On Saturday, Surrey travels to Prince George for a return engagement with the Spruce Kings.

Flag team scores big win in New Westminster

Three victories for Titans Three White Rock-South Surrey Titans football teams earned victories Sunday, while two others were shut out. In flag action, the Titans edged the Royal City Hyacks 22-13 in New Westminster, and were led by Marley Reiffer-Rodriguez and quarterback/kicker Bud Beliveau; the duo were responsible for all the Titansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; points in the game. Reiffer-Rodriguez finished the game with three touchdown runs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; two of which came in the first half, when the two teams were battling back and forth for the lead â&#x20AC;&#x201C; while Beliveau also had three touchdowns. He also converted two kicks. The atom-division Titans also won on the road Sunday, defeating the Cloverdale Lions 22-7. Cloverdale jumped out to an early 7-0 lead, but White Rock quarterback Beckham Dickie soon scored a TD of his own, and after Thor McKenzie kicked a convert â&#x20AC;&#x201C; worth two points â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Titans took the lead. Dickie added another touchdown â&#x20AC;&#x201C; also converted by McKenzie â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to give the Titans a 16-7 halftime lead. In the second half, Alec Kemp weaved his way through Cloverdale defenders for the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final touchdown of the game. The midget Titans, meanwhile, improved on their already strong record with a 37-20 win over the Vernon Magnums Sunday

afternoon at South Surrey Athletic Park. White Rock jumped out to a 10-0 lead after one quarter, after a TD from Riley Born and field goal from Tyler Jameson. In the second, the home side padded its lead when Born scored on a 12-yard run. The lead stretched to 31-0 later in the game, after Zack Skene found receiver Alex Lane open for a touchdown catch and Dallas Yassinsky returned a Vernon punt 71 yards into the endzone. Sarpreet Chahal, on a five-yard TD catch, also figured into the

scoring for White Rock. The Titans didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give up a point until late in the game, when Vernon scored on a 19-yard touchdown pass, and followed that with a successful onside kick, which eventually led to another six points. Elsewhere on the gridiron, the peewee Titans were shut out by their rivals from just up the road, losing 30-0 to the Cloverdale Bobcats, while the junior bantam Titans also failed to score Sunday, losing 48-0 to the Coquitlam Raiders at Mackin Park. - Nick Greenizan

FAMILY ANNOUNCEMENTS

HEYLAND, Ruth died peacefully on October 4, 2012. Predeceased by her husband, Ed and son, Jack. Survived by her daughters, Deanna (Harold) and Faye; grandchildren, Dean, Cathy, Heather and Michele; great-granddaughter, Lindsey and their spouses; great-great-granddaughter, Callie and many nieces and nephews. Ruth lived a long and full life and will be missed by all who knew her. No service by request. Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre 604-536-6522

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father and grandfather. Jake spent his final days at home in the loving care of his family, passing peacefully after a courageous battle with cancer. Jake will be dearly missed by his wife Sandy, his sons and daughters-in-law Perry and MaryEllen and Mike and Deb, and his precious grandchildren Jeannette, Michael, Devan and Madison as well as numerous extended family members and dear friends. Jake was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba and grew up in Langley, B.C. where he met Sandy his wife of 52 years. His passion for automobiles led him to South Surrey where he teamed with Len Collishaw and established Peace Arch Toyota, which he operated successfully for over forty years until it’s sale and his retirement in 2005. Jake served as President of the Canadian Toyota Dealers Association and as as a board member with the BC Toyota Dealer’s Council, the Canadian Association of Japanese Auto Dealers and the BC Automotive Dealers Association. From these roots on the Semiahmoo peninsula Jake was also tireless in his service to the community as President and an executive member with the White Rock Lions Club. But Jake is perhaps best remembered for his time as a Coach, Manager and a member of the executive for Semiahmoo Minor Hockey, White Rock South Surrey Little League and other local amateur sports organizations. After he retired Jake enjoyed spending time with family, watching his grandchildrens sports, travelling the world with Sandy, passionately following his Vancouver Canucks as a 43 year season ticket holder, golfing at Hazelmere Country Club and spending his winters in Mesa, Arizona. We will all miss Jake’s generous spirit, boundless enthusiasm and passion for life. A Celebration of Life will be held at 1:00 pm Friday, October 12, 2012 at Victory Memorial Park 14831-28th Ave, South Surrey, B.C. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Peace Arch Hospital Foundation would be appreciated. Godspeed Dad, you will live forever in the hearts of those you touched!

With deep sadness, we announce the passing of our Mother. Surrounded by family, Margaret passed away peacefully at Peace Arch Hospital. Margaret Elizabeth was born in South Africa, married Robert, they were blessed with one son and three daughters. The family moved to Toronto, Canada in 1976. Work commitments took the family to England where Margaret trained as a nurse before returning to Canada settling in North Vancouver and more recently South Surrey. A naturally glamorous lady, with a pioneering spirit, always generous living her life by faith and sharing her enthusiasm for culture on many levels. Margaret was often known to quote a profound statement, find the right word, up dancing to the music, paragliding in her 70’s, making trips abroad up until last year. Margaret found an interest in everything from a flower in the garden to current politics many would remember the long conversations until the early hours. Her family, good friends and also anyone she met would be enchanted by her joyful attitude to life and most of all she loved to laugh. Sadly Robert and one of her daughters’, Laurel, passed away but Margaret took comfort in her remaining children, Lyle, Grant and Meryll and also her 7 grandchildren.

Vibrant Ceremony Marks New Era At Kwantlen A new era began at Kwantlen Polytechnic University on October 2, as the presidential installation of Dr. Alan Davis proceeded during a formal ceremony held at the university’s Surrey campus. Community leaders, scholars, Kwantlen faculty and staff members, alumni and media, were among the 500-plus attendees who came to welcome the new president to the leadership of the university. The installation began with a musical prelude performed by A Touch of Brass, Campbell Ryga Trio, and Fringe Percussion, followed by the declaration of convocation, and the national anthem sung by Kwantlen music student Jered Steeves. Kwantlen’s Chair of the Board of Governors, Gord Schoberg, welcomed the new president, and Chancellor Arvinder Bubber presented the presidential robe to Dr. Davis. Dr. Mazen Guirguis (philosophy professor, Kwantlen), Sladjana Dobric (facilities interior designer, Kwantlen) and Hayley Woodin, (journalism student, Kwantlen) also came to the podium to greet Dr. Davis on behalf of their colleagues. “I have known Kwantlen since its founding 31 years ago, and watched as it has developed an outstanding reputation for its teaching and learning, and for its focus on the communities it serves,” said Dr. Alan Davis. “In its latest incarnation, as the only polytechnic university in Canada, serving one of the fastest growing and most diverse populations in Canada, its promise is enormous as it expands into new and emerging program areas and applied research.” A native of Reading, England, Dr. Davis has held influential positions at renowned institutions in the UK, United States and Canada; including roles at the British Columbia

Open University, Athabasca University, Niagara College and Vancouver Community College. Most recently, he served as president of Empire State College at the State University of New York. Mindful of its resilient and diverse history, Dr. Davis has become a part of Kwantlen’s journey as a polytechnic university. As president, Dr. Davis will greatly contribute to the university by helping to provide the essentials for innovative and ambitious growth. Established in 1981 by the Province of British Columbia, Kwantlen proudly adopted the name of the Kwantlen First Nation, whose people are acknowledged historically as ‘tireless runners’. In 1990 Kwantlen opened the doors to its new Surrey campus, a facility that proved monumental for the college’s growth. Less than two years later Kwantlen celebrated the opening of the Richmond campus, and became part of the Langley community in 1993. Two years later, the college officially changed its name to Kwantlen University College, becoming a bachelor’s degree-granting institution. By 2007 Kwantlen was ready to open its Trades and Technology Centre in Cloverdale, providing leading-edge trades and technology training for more than 900 students annually. In 2008 Kwantlen officially became Kwantlen Polytechnic University. Today, with campuses in Cloverdale, Langley, Richmond, and Surrey, Kwantlen Polytechnic University has opened the doors to success for more than 250,000 graduates, and each year over 18,000 students choose from more than 200 programs. Dr. Davis has devoted his career to higher learning and continues to be passionate

about the success and achievements of individuals taking it upon themselves to earn an education. Aside from his extraordinary academic contributions through publications and presentations, Dr. Davis is also a published playwright. His plays for young people have been performed across Canada. The new president’s formal education combined with practical experience and transformative vision will serve Kwantlen well as it continues to attract top students from around the world. Dr. Alan Davis’ appointment as president of Kwantlen Polytechnic University was effective September 1, 2012.

Lack of introductory deal for big rigs rankles some

Truckers cut out of half-price Port Mann tolls Jeff Nagel Black Press

Some truckers are angry they’re the only set of drivers who aren’t being offered an introductory deal when the new tolled Port Mann Bridge opens in December. The province last month unveiled half-price tolls for regular motorists until at least the end of February, and those who sign up by then get the 50-per-cent discount for a full year. The discount is 25 per cent off the $6 toll for light trucks and cars hauling trailers, and one-third off the $1.50 motorcycle toll. But drivers of semis and tractor trailers get no such break –  they’ll pay the full $9 per crossing toll for big rigs from the outset. “It’s not fair,” says Surrey trucker Jason Law. “There’s nothing for us. Everybody’s getting these discounts except the trucks.” Law hauls lumber in containers from a North Surrey sawmill to Vancouver port terminals and crosses the Port Mann four to six times a day. At $9 a crossing he figures he stands to lose up to $12,000 a year since neither his employer nor their customers appear likely to pick up the cost of tolls. “That’s a good chunk of money,” Law said. “Every truck driver around is pretty choked about these tolls. It’s just crammed down your throat and this is what you’re going

other big rig drivers are in the same position – needing to take the Port Mann regularly or facing a long, inefficient detour if they use an untolled bridge. “It’s definitely unfair to the drivers to take on this extra expense – on top of all the other expenses that have been rising, such as fuel costs,”

he said. B.C. Trucking Association president Louise Yako said it’s “disappointing” the first-year discount wasn’t extended to big trucks, adding she’s heard some complaints. “But I think most of my members are taking a look at the bigger picture and seeing there’s a very good

The

Professionals On The Peninsula Dentures only considered for temporary use

Extensive bone loss experienced by denture wearers account for most of the issues. With increasing bone loss, often as soon as a year into complete tooth loss, the denture has to be made taller and more bulky in order to provide the required esthetics. This results in a movement of 10 mm or more in every direction. The net effect is a very unstable denture where food can slip under the surface and hurt the underlying gums. The movement causes further bone loss and the vicious cycle continues. In the upper jaw , the denture is made to cover the roof of the mouth. This is a way of achieving some degree of suction to retain the prosthesis but the wearer pays the price of having 70 % of his / her taste buds covered and the gum tissue is strangled all day long with very little oxygen exchange through its surface.

is often present but may go un-noticed. The result? Decreased confidence in function, speech and comfort. Poor nutrition due to inability to chew efficiently, Associated hypertension due to decreased sensitivity of taste buds leading to an increased intake of salt and spices. The fortunate thing is that we now have very simple solutions to correct all that. It is still a significant financial investment but far more affordable than perceived. The outcome is probably the most predictable and best value for the denture wearer.

opportunity for improvements in trip times,” she said. “I think they’re taking the long view on this.” If transportation ministry estimates of the expected travel time savings are accurate, she said, paying the $9 each way should be worthwhile. Port Mann/Highway 1 project spokesman Max Logan noted large trucks are being offered a 50-percent overnight discount if they travel between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. –  an incentive that aims to reduce peak period congestion by encouraging more big rigs to roll after dark. “That’s a permanent discount,” he said. “It does not expire after the first year.” Logan said most truckers are pleased with that and the project’s inclusion of some truck-only ramps to Highway 1 that will open later in 2013. “Everyone always wants as much of a break as they can get,” he said. Yako agreed the overnight discount is welcome but said she doubts many truckers will switch to late-night runs in order to save on Port Mann tolls. “I don’t think that’s really going to (be an incentive for) a change in behaviour,” she said. “Most truck drivers don’t get to choose when they’re going to be travelling from point A to B. That’s dictated by customers.”

Rabbit rampage sparks call for pet store ban Jeff Nagel Black Press

B.C. cities are demanding the province ban pet stores from selling unsterilized bunnies to help quell a plague of fast-breeding feral rabbits in public parks and green space.

Last month, Union of B.C. Municipalities delegates voted 55 per cent to support a prohibition after Delta Coun. Bruce McDonald recounted the costs of dealing with abandoned rabbits that overran the grounds around Deltaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s municipal hall.

Faith

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We spent $350,000 replacing and repairing the damage done by the bunnies after we â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;removed them,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? he said. Bunnies are often bought close to Easter to delight children but are then later turned loose in parks

when they turn out to be peskier pets than families expected, he said. Stores donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to sterilize baby bunnies because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re too young, he added, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re usually sold by the time they are old enough. Thompson Nicola regional dis-

trict director Sally Watson cautioned against a province-wide ban that could interfere with rabbit meat farmers like herself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How would I ever get breeding stock?â&#x20AC;? she asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My rabbits arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cute â&#x20AC;&#x201C; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re delicious.â&#x20AC;?

McEwan rendered his decision Oct. 1 in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver. He said the taping of the phone calls was a breach of client-solicitor privilege and, when combined with the other issues, was “hazardous to (Bacon’s) psychological health and integrity.” It had been the position of the authorities at Surrey Pretrial Services Centre that the calls were accidentally recorded due to a technical error. However, McEwan said it appears the phone system remains vulnerable to abuse, and this remains a “significant concern” if Bacon is returned to the centre. He ruled that Bacon must be provided with a phone system for calls to his lawyer that is “not vulnerable to breaches of solicitor-client privilege, intentional or accidental.”

Real estate sales sag, prices drop in some cities

Hot property zones giving up gains: expert Jeff Nagel Black Press

Sagging demand from home buyers is putting downward pressure on Lower Mainland real estate prices, but mainly in areas where prices had shot up faster than the rest of the region. September home sales in Metro Vancouver were down eight per cent from August and have plunged 32.5 per cent from a year ago, according to the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV). And a composite benchmark price that tracks all residential property movement in the area is down 2.3 per cent in the past three months, or down 0.8 per cent from a year ago. That decline has been a more modest 1.8 per cent over three months and 0.1 per cent from a year ago over the entire Lower Mainland – which includes the

Fraser Valley, where values have held up better. “In some areas and neighbourhoods we’re seeing price declines, especially in the areas that ran up the most,” said Tsur Somerville, director of UBC’s Centre for Urban Economics and Real Estate at the Sauder School of Business. “There is a noticeable difference between this West VancouverVancouver west sideRichmond grouping and everywhere else,” he said. Prices in the three oceanfront cities that had soared in 2010 and 2011 have dropped five to seven per cent from their recent peaks, he noted. The priciest district remains Vancouver’s west side, where benchmark detached houses typically cost close to $2.1 million. That’s down 6.5 per cent

Fewer evaders on Skytrain, despite checks Jeff Nagel Black Press

It’s been just a month since Transit Police stepped up fare enforcement and tougher tactics kicked in to make scofflaws pay their fines. But TransLink officials say the initial results suggest more people are already paying their fares to ride the transit system than before. Officers handed out just 2,900 fare infraction tickets in September – down from the roughly 5,000 tickets issued in the same month of 2011. And it wasn’t for lack of effort. Police conducted 230,000 fare checks last month – 40 per cent more than the 164,000 a year earlier. “People are definitely more aware,” TransLink spokesman Derek Zabel said. “Customers are co-operating.” He said it’s too early to call the September statistics a clear trend,

but added the ongoing discussion of the changes in the media and social media have helped change behaviour. Zabel said TransLink wants to thank both those who have turned over a new leaf as well as the vast majority of passengers who have always paid their fares. In past years, most fare evaders who were caught never paid their tickets because there was no enforcement mechanism with teeth. But that changed when the province this year gave TransLink new tools to collect future fines. ICBC will now refuse to issue or renew licences or insurance for violators who don’t pay outstanding tickets and TransLink also has other options, such as sending unpaid fines to a collection agency. Fare evasion fines now start at $173 but climb to $213 after six months and $273 if unpaid after a year.

from a year ago but still up almost 40 per cent over the past five years. It’s a completely different story in Maple Ridge, where a detached house typically changes hands at $468,000 – the same price as five years ago and up just over one per cent from a year ago. The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board, which covers Surrey, said residential property as a whole declined 0.4 per

cent in the past three months, but is up 2.1 per cent year-over-year. Detached houses are up three per cent from a year ago at $549,000 while townhouses are down 1.7 per cent to $305,700 and apartments have gained 4.1 per cent to $198,800. “The Fraser Valley is much more stable than other areas of the Lower Mainland,” Somerville said.

Demand for higherend homes has fallen off the fastest in both Metro Vancouver and the Valley. Greater Vancouver real estate board president Eugen Klein said Ottawa’s elimination of 30-year government-insured mortgages earlier this year has led to a “clear reduction in buyer demand” because the measure intended to rein in Canadian debt

But Somerville doesn’t think the federal government’s tightening of mortgage rules is playing a major role. “That only applies on mortgages with a down payment of 25 per cent or less,” he said. “Nobody’s out buying a high-end home with a three per cent down payment.” Somerville said a slowdown in Lower
