Ridiculous, rushed, unfair and damaging were among the descriptions given to amendments proposed for White Rock’s single-family zoning bylaw. “If this bylaw changes, I’m going to be limited to a 2,800-squarefoot house with a dungeon,” Trevor Johnson told city officials during a public-information meeting TuesEvan Seal photos day.

WE PAY CASH!!!

RCMP officer’s death hits close to home for many

We Are Buying Gold!!!

Risking their lives on the job I

t’s one of the toughest things anyone has to deal with – the death of a colleague. For Surrey RCMP, that grim task greeted those who came to work Tuesday morning. One of their own, Const. Adrian Oliver, aged 28 and a three-year veteran, was killed when his unmarked police vehicle collided with a semi at 148 Street and 64 Avenue. The crash occurred about 5 a.m. Const. Oliver was heading back to the detachment, after working the night shift. It sounds like this was simply a tragic accident, but it leaves a huge hole in the hearts of those who knew him, and within the larger RCMP fraternity. Surrey RCMP is the biggest detachment in the country, and it’s hard for everyone working there to know everybody else. But when I visited the detachment several years ago, I was impressed with the sense of camaraderie that was quite evident. That kind of working atmosphere is both productive and positive, and in police work, which requires a lot of attention to detail, it’s important. Staff were wearing blue ribbons at the detachment on Tuesday and there were a lot of tears. It is a tragedy. Oliver is not the first Surrey RCMP officer to die in the line of duty.

Public invited to send condolences › from page A1 Const. John Terrance Draginda was responding to a report of a collision when he was involved in a crash on Sept. 29, 1974. Draginda and two occupants of a second vehicle were killed. Const. Roger Emile Pierlet died on March 29, 1974. He was working his last shift before his wedding when he saw an erratic vehicle. He stopped the car and

was shot to death. Const. Archille Octave Maxime Lepine was driving a police motorcycle on King George Highway on July 15, 1962 when a vehicle turned left in front of him. He died four days later. There have been other Surrey RCMP officers killed since 1975, but not while on duty. One of the most recent was helicopter pilot Dave Brolin, 46,

who died last January when his helicopter crashed following a training exercise near Chilliwack. There is a Wall of Honour inside the Surrey RCMP detachment on 144 Street and 56 Avenue with photos of the four fallen members who died on duty.

Online comments

Casino opinion sought Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

The people behind a proposed casino, hotel and conference centre in South Surrey have opened an online forum for residents to comment on the $100 million project planned for 10 Avenue and 168 Street. In a message posted on www. southsurreyentertainment. com, Gateway Casinos and Entertainment promises all comments submitted to the site by tomorrow (Friday) will be included in a report to the City of Surrey summarizing the company’s public-information efforts. “However, the site will remain active indefinitely, and we will continue to collect your feedback as the proposal moves through the public consultation process,” the message adds. The site includes links to news coverage of the project, images of the design and various documents outlining the Gateway arguments. As of Wednesday, close to 400 people had visited the site, recording 1,700 page views. The company added a button that visitors can click to show support. The Internet site went online Wednesday, Nov. 7, when Gateway hosted a public-information meeting about the project at the Hazelmere Golf Club. The company reports that as of Wednesday, Nov. 14, 163 of the 375 people who attended the Hazelmere meeting had turned in completed feedback forms. Slightly more than half were supporters, people who wrote that they liked the amenities the entertainment complex would bring, including the casino, and were happy about the economic benefits, such as the jobs that would be created. The remaining responses were divided between people who were adamantly opposed and those who appeared neutral, but had questions about the project. Opponents were concerned about traffic, the location and gambling, and more than one complained there wasn’t sufficient consultation. A exact breakdown of responses was not available. Gateway and the BC Lottery Corporation (BCLC) project the complex would produce $6 million in revenues annually for the City of Surrey. Preliminary designs call for a 60,000-sq.-ft. gaming floor, 800-seat theatre, 27,000-sq.-ft. convention and entertainment zone, a 200-room, four-star hotel, four restaurants and three lounges. The facility would occupy 18 acres of a 25-acre site. BCLC has suggested the casino, if approved by the city, could be open as soon as late 2014. A public forum, organized by casino opponents, was held Wednesday evening, after Peace Arch News’ press time.

‘Floater suit’ helps keep man alive in cold, choppy water

Boater rescued after hours in water Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A South Surrey man who was rescued this week after hours of drifting in the cold, choppy waters of Boundary Bay was in “surprisingly good shape” considering the conditions. “We were all pretty concerned because he’d been out there for a long time,” said Sig Kristensen, a member of the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue 5 team in Crescent Beach. “Chances of survival drop dramatically in those conditions.” Kristensen said crews began searching for the man around 9 p.m. Sunday, after his family reported him overdue from a trip between Point Roberts and Crescent Beach in a 20-foot jet boat. The man had left a broken-up voice mail stating that the boat was taking on water. After an initial search along the route came up empty, the Crescent Beach team rendezvoused with RCM-SAR 8 Delta and the Coast Guard Hovercraft Penac, and – in heavy rain, 30-knot winds and five- to eight-foot waves – conducted search patterns from Point Roberts to Kwomais Point. Again, they came up empty. The man was finally located off Maple Beach, on the east side of Tsawwassen, around 1:30 a.m. Monday, by a helicopter crew onboard the RCAF Cormorant Rescue 902. “When we got the report that they spotted

Crews aboard the Hovercraft Penac deliver a man safely to Blackie Spit early Monday morning. him and he was moving around, we were pretty happy,” said Kristensen, who was among several members of the Crescent Beach team who stayed on shore in anticipation of a crew change. Kristensen credited the man’s “floater suit” with helping ensure a happy ending to the story, along with the boater’s decision to hunker down in a small compartment on his vessel, which further protected him from the elements. “He didn’t come out till he heard the helicopter,” Kristensen said.

Hypothermic, the man was warmed on the hovercraft for about 90 minutes, then transferred to shore at Blackie Spit, where he was reunited with his wife and daughter. Because of the rough water and high winds, it took another couple of hours to get his vessel – which had lost power after its jet-drive intake became clogged with seaweed – towed back. Kristensen said the rescue effort was “about the longest” stretch that the Crescent Beach crew had been deployed for in some time.

Diesel-exhaust opponents out in force

32 Avenue residents fume Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Residents of 32 Avenue are reigniting their fight to get diesel trucks off of the South Surrey thoroughfare between 152 and 176 Streets. “If you care… you should be there,” an email advising of a Nov. 17 rally at the corner of 154 Street and 32 Avenue states. Area residents have been tackling the issue routinely since 2003. In 2011, they formed the 32nd Avenue Alliance, to oppose plans to expand the roadway to five lanes to accommodate trucks travelling to and from the Campbell Heights industrial area. Group members – representing residents in Morgan Creek, Rosemary Heights, Kensington Prairie and Grandview Heights – cited public health, public safety and noise as their prime concerns, estimating more than 1,000 diesel trucks currently pass through their neighbourhood every day. Alliance member Pauline Cremin said Friday those concerns have yet to be abated.

Saturday’s rally is being staged uary, and further strides were just three weeks prior to an antic- made, including formation of a ipated TransLink board vote on task force by TransLink to look whether or not to remove 32 into the issue.

Mayor says action needed asap › from page A1 As everything was done by the book, and no variances were requested, city officials had no choice but to allow the project to proceed. The developer “pushed the envelope as far as they could push it to build the maximum that they could build,” the city’s director of planning, Paul Stanton, had told Peace Arch News. “The legislation’s very clear. If they meet the B.C. Building Code requirements and they meet the city’s zoning bylaw and other criteria, we have an obligation – we have to issue the permit.” Halbert told attendees Tuesday that efforts are underway to revamp the zoning bylaw as a whole, with a draft expected to

be brought forward in January. Changes proposed for the RS-1 zone, however, are being fasttracked, she said, to prevent similar applications from coming forward. They could – and most likely will – change again in the overall review, she noted. “This is an interim measure to give us a chance to do more finetuned exploration.” Developer Lorenzo Arcari said the move is driving business away from White Rock. He confirmed with Halbert that the changes would impact applications that come forward from people who have already bought their lots but haven’t yet submitted their designs to the city. “I talked to two builders today and they said they’re done build-

ing in White Rock,” he said. Mayor Wayne Baldwin said he sympathizes with residents who are in that position, but said steps must be taken as soon as possible. “We’ve got a bit of a problem,” Baldwin told the group. “We have to close this gap before we end up with a bunch of messes on our hands. We have to get this in before Christmas. There are a lot of applications coming through.” Johnson cautioned against rushing into changes. Thousands of people will be affected, he said. “Let’s not create other problems because we have problems.” Suggestions offered by attendees included limiting the maximum house size, creating another zone, limiting number of basements and better defining daylighting.

Officers with the Mounties’ Emergency Response Team forced their way into a home in the 2600-block of 152 Street around 11 p.m. Nov. 9, shortly after a citizen reported hearing a

woman screaming for help. The team surrounded the home after occupants refused to open the door to general-duty officers or respond to negotiations. A police spokesman said the move was in the interest of public safety. Several people located inside the residence were taken into

Fired up about severance

P

remier Christy Clark has questioned a decision made in secret by an all-party committee to extend $127,000 in severance pay to MLAs who are recalled by voters. It’s a good call. The decision was made in February 2011, at a time when recall campaigns were targeting BC Liberal MLAs over the harmonized sales tax. It was disclosed, belatedly, in minutes from the Legislative Assembly Management Committee, which began public disclosure of its proceedings this fall following a critical report from B.C. Auditor General John Doyle. The severance pay for those recalled amounts to 15 months of an MLA’s base salary, frozen at $101,859 a year in 2010, when the B.C. government imposed a two-year freeze on public service salaries. Severance pay has been available to MLAs defeated in elections since 2007. It’s also offered to those who retire at election time before reaching six years in office, when they would become eligible for a lucrative pension. Clark was asked last Thursday about the wisdom of extending severance to recalled MLAs. She said noted government doesn’t control the committee, which is chaired by legislative speaker Bill Barisoff and has both BC Liberal and NDP members. Clark added she has not had an opportunity to speak to committee members. Barisoff, MLA for Penticton, was himself one of the BC Liberals targeted in anti-HST recall efforts that ultimately fell short of their goal. Barisoff defended the decision Thursday, telling reporters that MLAs who are recalled because of cabinet decisions rather than personal misconduct deserve severance so they can make the transition to another job. Barisoff doesn’t seem to understand the issue. Not getting re-elected is like your employer letting you go. Maybe an argument can be made for severance, albeit a weak one. But being the subject of a successful recall – whether because of a cabinet decision or not – is akin to being fired with cause. Ask any employer (in this case, that’s the B.C. taxpayer) whether being fired should result in severance. The answer is “no.” Giving a golden handshake to those the public have said aren’t fit for office any longer is yet another slap in the face to the people who actually foot the bill. It should be reiterated that the decision for severance came from an all-party committee, not just the governing Liberals. It shows, yet again, the disconnect those who inhabit Victoria often have with the rest of the province.

ship by running in the shadow of it, instead of heading right or left to get out from under. Come to think of it, the “cough>name of thing you’re pretending not to mention <cough” bit should be retired from columnizing. Along with columns about the horror of getting older. It seems to be a rite of passage for opinion writers to do at least one about the shock to the system that ensues the first time someone calls them “sir” or “ma’am” for the first time. As if there were somehow a reasonable alternative to getting older. And while we’re on the subject of journalism, perhaps we could stop trying to torque the living daylights out of stories that don’t actually involve the fate of the free world. Some of you may remember SCTV and a comically desperate television anchor who tried to make every simple city council story into a drama of outrage and intrigue. How about we just tell the story without trying to bully people into getting all worked up? A vastly better writer than me once observed that approach feels like having someone standing behind you with a rolled-up newspaper whacking you on the back of your head. Like the famous story of the editor telling a rookie reporter to never use the word “tragedy” again. If something is a tragedy, he said, the reader will be able to figure it out.

Peace Arch News

Voter info not Their speed is picture-perfect appreciated Editor: I am dismayed by city hall’s behaviour during the byelection. Using its weekly White Rock City News ads in Peace Arch News, the city started early on Oct. 4 and Oct. 11 to warn both those voting in advance and those voting Nov. 3 to “Please bring 1 piece of picture identification with you.” On Oct. 18, under the heading “Advance Voting Dates and Location,” the wording was actually strengthened: “If you are already on the voters list only one piece of picture identification is required.” But I learned that while election staff “preferred” photo ID – giving as reasons the need to perform due diligence and to speed the process for the poll clerks – it was not mandatory. The ads on Oct. 25 and Nov. 3 simply omitted all mention of ID for voters, and the only reference to ID was for those wishing to register. Citizens who knew they were already on the voters list and thought they needed to bring photo ID did not learn otherwise unless they called city hall. I believe city hall staff were correct that the number of people without photo ID was small. But that hardly matters. As June Hicklin, an advisory officer to local governments for the provincial government, told me, the point is “quite major.” It is bad for democracy when civil servants find it acceptable to mislead the public. And the failure to correct the earlier misinformation has the unfortunate appearance of a minor coverup. City hall staff report to the mayor and council. I hope they will not censure anyone – but I trust that they will make it clear to all staff that this city’s policy is to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Elaine Harding, White Rock

Nothing safer about turn ban Editor: Re: Residents critical of freeway plans, Nov. 6. After reading the article, I would like to point out that I believe that you missed the two most pressing issues of limiting or blocking left turns at 16 Avenue and 162 Street – effectively blocks access to Cherry Brook Park and also all of the homes on 16A Avenue by emergency vehicles such as fire, ambulance and police. The ministry says this is to be done to improve safety issues around left-hand turns at this intersection. How can forcing eastbound vehicles to make the same left turn about four blocks east – entailing passing through the new interchange twice after adding about six-eighths of a mile to the journey – be considered safer? W. Dave Hammer, Surrey

Editor: We would like to thank the Surrey fire department for their speedy response to the fire at our building at 24 Avenue and 152 Street on Nov. 2. We are fortunate to have suffered no damage. And while there is a hole in the roof and some water damage to other stores, without the

department’s quick response it could have been far, far worse. Thank you. Nicky Armstrong, Cruise Holidays

Leave the work to a student Editor: With the changing colour of the leaves, this is a beautiful time of year. The red maple trees have never looked more red in our area and some of the yards and streets look

like a sea of red. I have noticed people and some seniors who are raking the leaves. This is very hard on one’s back. May I suggest buying an electric leaf blower which costs $80 plus the cost of a long extension cord? The blower collects the leaves and mulches them, which makes them more compact to put in the yard-waste carts. It easily takes the dead leaves off the top of the small Japanese maples. This is an ideal job for a student who wants to earn some money. Joanne Hart, Surrey

“ “

quote of note

All veterans contribute and put their lives on the line at the government’s whim, regardless of where they serve.❞ ❝

Don Robertson

Boaz Joseph photo

A trumpeter performs in Port Kells at one of several Remembrance Day ceremonies in Surrey Sunday.

We have so many to remember Editor: This is the time of year that I grit my teeth due to the emphasis on the term “war veteran” by the media and other pundits. It has been decades since we had a war, and the concentration on Second World War events, and, to a much lesser extent Korea, leaves out thousands of veterans who served during the Cold War and on the many “peacekeeping” missions around the world that filled the gap between Korea and Afghanistan. Many who served in NATO forces and as peacekeepers were shot at and often gave their lives in Canada’s service. Even the federally sanctioned Peacekeeping Day on Aug. 6 receives short shrift from most communities and the media. We forget that many of the so-called “war veterans” served in Canada and the U.K., without hearing a shot fired in anger, and still earn the magic – and benefits – of the war veteran designation. My thoughts on Remembrance Day turn to old comrades who faced danger with just a flag and a notebook and couldn’t fire back, including those killed in training mishaps who died because they volunteered for service but remain forgotten. Individuals come to my mind such as Regimental Sgt. Maj. Dick Buxton who died in a parachuting mishap, Maj. George Findlay who died in an autobahn accident while serving with NATO in Germany; Lt.-Col. George Flint who was killed in Gaza; Capt. Dick Patton who was held hostage by the Viet Cong in Vietnam and who was later killed by a sniper in Cyprus; The Patricias’ best regimental sergeant major, Mick Austin, who held that rank from his 22nd birthday, during the Second World War, until his death in Halifax. Yes, there are innumerable memories of those who served, were injured or killed, came away unscathed but have not been fully recognized, as most Canadians believe that nothing of note happened between the Second World War, Korea and Afghanistan. Until we stop glorifying “war veterans” and

acknowledge that all veterans contribute and put their life on the line at the government’s whim, regardless of where they serve, will we acknowledge our military’s huge contribution to Canada’s stature as a caring nation. Don Robertson, White Rock n It was a privilege to be able to stand there in silence, remembering the uniformed men and women who gave their life so that we can be free. Sadly, never mentioned are all the civil men and women who lived in occupied countries, opposing the intruders in any form they could. For some, there are individual memorials in those countries, to draw the attention to those who are alive today but rarely think to remember, as that was in the past. In today’s society, the attitude is “we want more.” So few of the younger generations are present at these memorial events. That view was demonstrated by schools providing the opportunity to refuse to honour. One of those recognitions was and is the wearing of a poppy, a national tradition. Suan H. Booiman, White Rock

Remembrance subverted MP Russ Hiebert has sunk to a new low with his latest mailing. After lately using his taxpayer-funded mail-out for blatant electioneering, now he wishes his constituents to rate the parties in which best supports veterans. You own editorial of Nov. 8 (Our veterans deserve better) underlines some of the injustices to veterans due to the present federal government. What nerve, to subvert Canadians’ remembrance of our veterans by turning it into a partisan, political contest. Hiebert (South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale) should have stopped with his reminder of the two battles. How low can one go? Keith Enns, Surrey

Marine Drive improvements en route

City OKs $1-million plan White Rock council has approved a $1-million project to replace poor-condition storm and sanitary sewers along four blocks of Marine Drive. The work, awarded to Pedre Contractors Ltd. last month, was initially scheduled to get underway between Bishop and High streets this month, the city’s director of engineering and municipal operations told council. Inclement weather, however, may delay the start until the new year, said Greg St. Louis. According to a staff report, the project will be done in two phases,

over the course of about 80 days. If it gets underway this month, the first phase is expected to complete early next year, with road reconstruction to wrap up in the spring. Regardless of the start, Marine Drive will have to be closed “from time to time” to complete the work, St. Louis said. While the roads will be open to local traffic, residents who park on the street in the affected area will have to move their vehicles. “It may be a little congested at times,” St. Louis said. Residents have been advised, he

said, and a reminder will go out the week before the work gets underway. The temporary inconvenience will be worth it, noted Mayor Wayne Baldwin. “Unfortunately, you can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs,” he said. The city received 11 bids for the project. The highest came in at just over $1.9 million. Pedre Contractors Ltd. bid $1,027,937. The total tab will be about $1.3 million after tax, contingency and other costs. - Tracy Holmes

Wood-burning issue to be reviewed Residents of a White Rock neighbourhood have asked city officials to deal “urgently” with their concerns about woodburning smoke emanating from a city-owned rental house on Prospect Avenue. A petition delivered to council members with their Oct. 29 agenda bears 19 signatures of residents living near the 14900block of Prospect. “We object to the nuisance and pollution caused by wood-burning appliances within city limits,” the petition states.

“In particular, the city-owned residence at 14925 Prospect Ave. burns wood during colder months. The resultant wood smoke and its particulates hang in the ravine and the neighbourhood, causing irritation, nuisance and disturbance to the comfort and enjoyment of the neighbourhood and persons nearby.” An Oct. 11 letter signed by Mike and Emilie Campbell notes the petition represents an “overwhelming majority” of neighbours; one of three who declined to sign is a city employee, the

Campbells add. According to the letter, the issue was first raised to former director of municipal operations Rob Thompson in March, and again to new director Greg St. Louis in August. Among petitioners’ requests is for council to “eliminate the fire hazard… which could spread to the sensitive ravine forest adjacent.” Council voted unanimously to refer the petition to staff for review. - Tracy Holmes

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Ramona Kaptyn shares her experience trekking 666 kilometres in 40 days

World of experience behind CARP’s clout Tracy Holmes

U

Staff Reporter

ntil about a year ago, Ramona Kaptyn’s secret to staying young was simple:

lie. “I used to lie about my age before I turned 65,” the South Surrey woman confesses. “I’d always make myself about five years younger. I’m very blessed with good genes and I could get away with it. “Once I turned 65 I thought, oh well.” Now 66, Kaptyn is the new chair of the White Rock/South Surrey chapter of CARP – A New Vision of Aging for Canada, a national organization that works to promote and protect the interests, rights and quality of life ❝We really for Canadians want to know as they age. what people It’s an are thinking so organization, we can do the she says, that right thing.❞ has clout. “The more Ramona Kaptyn involved our CARP chair members get, the more things we can take to the federal government and provincial government, and also with municipal (government). “We vote – we can vote you in and we can vote you out. People don’t realize how much clout you really have.” Kaptyn joined CARP in early 2010, about eight months after arriving in South Surrey. The landing following six years of working in Asia – with a home base in Toronto – and extended visits in the United States. These days, it is a different organization, she says. Where the focus used to be on the retired, CARP’s target audience is “so much broader (now),” welcoming everyone aged 45 and older. “And the advocacy is the part that is really, really good. CARP is constantly filing notices with the government, doing the website (www.carp.ca); there’s all kinds of polls.”

Clockwise from top left, Ramon Kaptyn walks along a path in Camino de Santiago; Kapytn and fellow Rotarian Bonnie Goodwin completed 666 kilometres on the trip; Kaptyn and friends at a church during the pilgrimage. Kaptyn quite literally brings a world of experience to her new role, having lived and worked at “a million careers” as far away as Bangladesh, Malaysia and Vietnam. In addition to work as a journalist and a teacher, she spent much time time with non-governmental organizations focused on human rights, good governance, schools for children and micro-credit for

women. “You really do see a lot of the inequities in the world and how governments… really mess up their people,” Kaptyn said. “It really gives you an insight.” A recent trip to northern Spain with friend and fellow Rotarian Bonnie Goodwin, to trek the Camino de Santiago, further bolstered her focus.

“It helped to clear away a lot of the noise and sort of getting too involved in things that aren’t important,” Kaptyn said of the 666 kilometres she and Goodwin covered over the course of 40 days on the trail last summer. The pair conquered mountains, mud, rain and injury along the way; and, Goodwin raised $1,800 for PolioPlus, an international

Rotary program aimed at eradicating polio worldwide. Kaptyn described the Camino de Santiago as “one of the most important pilgrimages in Christendom.” Raised Catholic, Kaptyn said for her, the journey – which follows the Milky Way – was a spiritual one, “just because of the history and the power and the people that you meet.” Her favourite spot was atop the 777-metre Alto del Perdon, or Peak of Forgiveness – “where the path of the wind crosses the path of the stars,” and a sculpture of cast-iron cutouts of pilgrims on foot and horse greet visitors. “It was an amazing trip,” she said. “When you get to Santiago, you literally walk into the square and you cry.” As the local CARP chair, Kaptyn said she hopes to boost the already-strong membership, bring more social activities to the community and find out more about what members want from the organization. “We want to know in this chapter what it is that our members really want, and what it is they want us to do as far as advocacy goes, what kind of benefits they want. “We really want to know what people are thinking so we can do the right thing.”

64K hits for city website

Statistics that show nearly 64,000 people from all corners of the world visited White Rock’s website in the first six months of 2012 are proof the site is “an effective communications tool,” council has heard. The message from Jamie Leggatt – who is the city’s communications officer

lifestyles – was delivered Oct. 29, in a report that also detailed where visitors to www.whiterockcity.ca hailed from and what they were looking for. The revamped site was launched in October 2011 with features that were intended to be more userfriendly than the city’s previous website.

Leggatt told council that during the course of a total 102,043 visits to the site between Jan. 1 and June 30, visitors viewed 322,647 pages. From as far away as Australia and the Philippines, they searched for jobs and leisure activities in the city. “People from all over the world are visiting our web-

Thursday, November 15, 2012 Peace Arch News site,” Leggatt said. Closer to home, 836 searches have been conducted since a widget (Recollect.net) was implemented in March. The widget enables residents to find and download a customized PDF of the garbage collection schedule for their neighbourhood; set up

email, text, phone or Twitter reminders; and incorporate the calendar with their own Google document. Between the time the widget was first embedded and the end of June, 76 PDFs were downloaded and 173 households signed up for reminders, Leggatt said. - Tracy Holmes

Members of the Rotary Club of South Surrey did some final gardening before winter comes to the area.

Rotary members spruce up Bryant Park one last time before winter

Final cleanup of the year Rotary Club of South Surrey members enjoyed some good weather as they finished their last clean up of Bryant Park for the year on Saturday. Flower beds at the south end of the park were trimmed, weeded and given a general sprucing up

for the fall, Joanne Taylor, the rotary club’s director of public relations, said. New bulbs – donated by the City of White Rock – were planted, as well as some ornamental plants, grass and heather, supplied by Lionheart Horticul-

ture, who also professionally designed the flower bed for the club. “Many local residents passed by and approved of the work and are looking forward to the spring flowerings at the park,” Taylor said.

“YOu AND THe LAw” BewARe fACeBOOK if suiNg fOR iNjuRies By Janice Mucalov, LL.B. What you post on Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, YouTube or other social media can come back to haunt you. This is especially true if you say the back injury you suffered in a car accident severely restricted your activities, but Facebook photos show you skiing down black diamond runs. Of course this is only a problem if what you say at pre-trial questioning or trial can be contradicted by such postings, allowing the other side to show that your claimed injuries and limitations are exaggerated or don’t exist. Take the 2010 case of Mr. M, 22, injured in three separate accidents over five years. He first hurt his right wrist, then (second accident) his right knee and finally (third accident) his back. He claimed this affected his ability to work and enjoy recreational activities. But photos posted on Facebook showed him playing football, kneeling on a tube while being towed behind a boat, kneeling while posing with friends and sitting curled up in a clothes dryer. This and other evidence proved that some of Mr. M’s claims were exaggerated and inconsistent with his actual condition. The damages awarded to him for “pain and suffering” took this into account. In another case, 22-year old Ms. S was injured in two car accidents, four years apart. She claimed the resulting ongoing headaches and neck, back and hip pain limited her ability to have fun and reduced her future earning capacity as a nurse. But her Facebook profile showed her rock climbing, white-water rafting, in a soccer uniform and at a golf driving range. This and other evidence of sports activity after the accidents didn’t match her description of her incapacities, which

the court also factored in her compensation award. The courts do try to balance your privacy rights in Facebook postings (and the rights of others) against the rights of the defence to get full disclosure of material relevant evidence. And, after looking at photos posted on Facebook, the court will sometimes comment they aren’t very helpful. But in appropriate cases, the courts will even order you to disclose to the other side photos or videos not accessible to the public that you shared only with “friends” and family. So privacy settings on Facebook and general privacy rights may not protect you. A recent ruling illustrates this. Ms F, a first-year law student at the University of Victoria, was rear-ended in a car accident. She claimed continuing neck and back pain and headaches, saying her injuries affected her recreational and social activities, employability and future prospects. But she travelled extensively after the accident and also went hiking, scubadiving and wake-boarding (though with some restrictions and pain). Her private Facebook profile, which couldn’t be seen by the general public, could be viewed by 890 “friends” and stored 759 photos and one video. She also had some 12,000 other photos. In a pre-trial hearing, the court ordered her to disclose those that showed her participating in a certain “Law Games” social-and-sports tournament plus those taken on vacations since the accident. But she was allowed to edit the photos to protect the privacy of other people in them. If hurt in an accident, consult your lawyer, be truthful about the nature and extent of your injuries, and consider limiting your Facebook activities.

Proceeds to women’s centre

Shopping for a cause Sheila Reynolds Black Press

Tonight (Thursday) will be a fun night out to mingle, win prizes, snack on appetizers and perhaps start – or finish – your Christmas shopping. All the while, you’ll be helping women and children who are escaping violent or unsafe situations. This is the second year Cindy Day, manager of Surrey’s Royal LePage Coronation Park, has organized the Shopping Extravaganza at Eaglequest Coyote Creek Golf. Last year, after just three hectic weeks of planning, $2,000 was raised at the event. The goal for this evening is $5,000. “This year I’m opening it to everyone. The more people I can get to attend, the more money we’ll raise.” The evening includes three hours of food, beverages, raffles, a toonie toss, 50/50 draw, balloon pop and more. One hundred per cent of the money raised will benefit the Surrey Women’s Centre, and the vendors will also be donating 15 per cent of their sale proceeds.

Vendors include Pampered Chef, Bijoux by Christi, Tupperware, Fifth Avenue Collection, Kanaka Creek Candy Bouquets, Partylite, J.R. Watkins, Sunset Gourmet, Love Them Gems, Miche Bags, DNT Collection, Epicure, Steeped Tea, Stella & Dot and The Writing on the Wall. The shopping night coincides with the 20th anniversary of the SWC, which was incorporated Nov. 16, 1992. Through commission donations, in-office fundraisers and various public events, Royal LePage Coronation Park raised more than $10,000 last year, which helped the SWC launch its Surrey Mobile Assault Response Team (SMART). Since its inception in April, between four and six women have been helped per week, many under age 17. The Nov. 15 Shopping Extravaganza is from 6-9 p.m. Eaglequest is located at 7778 152 St. For further information, search Royal LePage Coronation Park on Facebook. Or contact Kyla at kyla. royallepage@hotmail.ca or phone 604-581-3838.

many business organizations is certainly a step in the right direction. However, in order to create widespread support for environmental awareness, we need mandatory courses. Education will not guarantee environmentallyconscious leadership, but it will help. Climate change, as many sceptics would have you believe, is not some sort of fad or trendy topic. Unless we take drastic measures at all levels of society, climate change will continue to remain a pressing issue. Though many minor and major environmental sustainability programs are offered at universities, mandatory sustainability courses would ensure that all graduates are environmentally aware. It is time that our scientists and climatechange researchers aren’t the only ones advocating for sustainable action. Business professionals, politicians and engineers also need to understand the vital importance of sustainability.

We have all seen the melting glaciers and rising sea levels on television. These are not dramatic depictions. Climate change is a harsh truth that must be addressed. Education has continued to serve as a beacon of light in our society and Canadian universities have produced global leaders. Universities, however, must continue to change with the changing needs of society. We need them to help in addressing the climate change crisis with more vigour and determination. Awareness and action not only begins at the individual level, but also in the classroom. Changes in the university curriculum, alone, will not help address the major issue of climate change, but knowledge has the power to effect both short-term and long-term results. Japreet Lehal writes monthly for Peace Arch News on youth issues.

Rise slated for January, FareSaver ticket prices frozen

Transit fares set to increase Jeff Nagel Black Press

Most transit fares in Metro Vancouver will rise at least 10 per cent in January as TransLink moves to wring more cash out of riders. And monthly pass holders and West Coast Express users will pay 12.5 per cent more than they do now. The fare increase will generate an estimated $32 million for the transportation authority and the impact depends on what type of ticket or pass is bought. Cash fares will rise Jan. 1 to $2.75 from $2.50 to travel one zone, to $4 from $3.75 for two zones and to $5.50 from $5 for three zones. The one-zone concession fare of $1.75 for seniors and students will be unchanged, but two-zone concession fares go to $2.75 from $2.50 and three zones rise 25 cents to $3.75. Monthly passes jump to $91 (up from $81) for one zone, $124 (up from $110) for two zones and $170 (up from $151) for three zones. Concession passes rise to $52 from $45.50. A day pass will now cost $9.75 or $7.50 for the concession rate. HandyDart custom transit users will also see their fees go up. TransLink has the legislated power to raise cash fares two per cent a year, which enables the 10 per cent increase because cash

Transit fares are slated to jump at least 10 per cent in January. fares haven’t risen in the five years since 2008. The prices of prepaid FareSaver tickets remain unchanged, as they were increased in 2010. TransLink spokesman Drew Snider was unable to provide estimates of how much transit demand might be dampened by higher fares. “We’re actually seeing transit demand grow substantially each year,” he said, adding it was a “difficult choice” to increase fares. Fares generate one third of TransLink’s revenue, with most of the rest coming through property tax and fuel tax. TransLink wanted to raise fares even higher – by about 12.5 per cent overall –  but the portion of the proposed increase beyond the

rate of inflation was rejected by TransLink Commissioner Martin Crilly last spring. One-zone rates apply on transit no matter how far a passenger travels after 6:30 p.m. and on weekends and holidays. This may be the last year that conventional tickets and passes are issued. TransLink will introduce its Compass smart card in late 2013, which is to become the new method of payment in the system. Snider said the Compass card will mirror the existing fare structure when it rolls out, adding there are no immediate plans for a restructuring that might eventually see TransLink eliminate its current zones in favour of more precise distance-based fares.

Southridge’s Brian Kang has found his musical match with the clarinet

Student musician embraces ensembles Alex Browne Arts Reporter

Clarinetist Brian Kang, 17, is no stranger to challenges. He weathered the change in cultures when his family emigrated to Canada from his native Korea when he was in Grade 4. He has maintained high grades at Southridge School and is applying for early admission to several prestigious colleges and universities. On the musical level, the voluble Grade 12 student has survived the choice of a difficult and demanding

instrument, and the perpetual reed players’ torment over the impermanence and changeability of the wooden reed itself. He’s also transitioned from solo playing, at which he’s excelled in competition, to the team approach of ensemble and orchestral work. This Sunday, Nov. 18, he will face one of his biggest musical challenges yet, as a member of the reed section in the Vancouver Academy of Music Symphony Orchestra (VAMSO) for the concert Beethoven Celebration, 7:30 p.m. at the Orpheum Theatre.

post-secondary education will take, he’s hoping he can at least continue some musical studies while pursuing an engineering degree. “A double-major in engineering and music would be ideal for me,” he said. Ironically, he only began playing the clarinet in Korea because he thought, at the time, it would improve his recorder playing. “Now, I think of the recorder as just a toy,” he said. He credits the move to Canada, and the relative freedom he has › see page A30

Move to Canada spurred switch › from page A29 enjoyed in the school system – even at academically-focused Southridge, where he applied and was accepted after finishing Grade 7 at Chantrell Creek Elementary – with helping him develop as a musician. “If I had stayed in Korea, I don’t think I would have continued with the clarinet,” he said. “I never realized I’d continue with it. For a young boy it’s more usual to go out and play soccer.” But Kang, who started competing as a soloist when he reached Grade 8, realized he had talent and a natural affinity for the instrument. “In my first competition, I did really well for a first time,” he said, adding that it led to a spate of competing and performing. But that changed in Grade 11, when he started studying at the Vancouver Music Academy and became a member of the youth symphony orchestra. “It was a big transition from soloist to

In school, some courses are mandatory and there’s not the same

enthusiasm – you have to be there. “In music, people want to be there. And I love the fact it’s not just one instrument – it’s different instruments of different timbres that have to combine, that somehow blend with each other.” Kang said he has really

come to appreciate the ensemble approach to making music, whether in a chamber or symphonic setting. “I’ve met a lot of soloists who tend to be self-centred. Being in an ensemble helps you become more musically and socially aware. “You learn to listen to each other – listening and learning to work with each other is a big lesson.” Aside from the challenging 9th Symphony and the Fidelio Overture, Kang said he’s looking forward to playing Beethoven’s demanding Triple Concerto, featuring three returning VAMSO alumni Naomi Woo (piano, now at Yale University), Jonathan Chan (violin, now at the Guildhall School) and Jonathan Lo (cello, now at Juillard). “It’s not as famous as the symphonies, but I think it’s one of his best works,” he said. But the 9th Symphony is far more rigorous for the clarinet, he acknowledged. “I’m working hard to focus and stay focused.”

We’ve built a reputation of excellence.

Lingering leprechaun

Sick of Colds and Flu?

Surrey Arts Centre presents Nov. 16 performance

Acoustic trio takes the stage Spirited songs, flawless musicianship, and a warm and engaging stage show have made Canadian folk and jazz singer/songwriter David Myles an instant hit with audiences worldwide. His unabashed joy at being on stage is infectious, and he has been featured on Stuart McLean’s Vinyl Café. “I’ve been obsessed with music since I was a little kid,” says

Myles, who cites Miles Davis and Ray Charles as major influences. Surrey Arts Centre presents Myles in an acoustic trio performance on Nov. 16 at 8 p.m. Accompanied by Kyle Cunjak on upright bass and Alan Jeffries on guitar, Myles will play some folk-flavoured tunes from his past albums, as well as songs from his new release, Into the Sun, which showcases his love of

experimentation, combining pop hooks with great songwriting. “It’s contemporary folk music in maybe the same vein as Paul Simon or James Taylor,” explains Myles. “There’s also a heavy soul and R&B influence.” Tickets ($30-33) are available at tickets.surrey.ca or by calling 604-501-5566. The Surrey Arts Centre is located at 13750 88 Ave.

Fight Back with Plant Sterols! If you find yourself running for cover every time someone coughs, or missing days of work due to chronic colds and flu, then your immune system may need help. Plant sterols help balance the immune system to fight chronic colds and flu, especially in the winter months when our immune systems can be under constant attack. Plant sterols are essential to the body, but like vitamin C, the body cannot synthesize them, they have to be ingested. However,, due to the modern processing of food, today’ss diets tend to be deficient in sterols.

Immuno-Care® is a one-a-day

plant sterol supplement clinically tested and proven to support the body against colds, flu, seasonal allergies, infection, inflammation and the symptoms of autoimmune diseases.

‘Thrill’-ing story to be laid out in intimate setting Alex Browne Arts Reporter

It may seem like an unlikely subject for a musical, but Thrill Me – based on the famous Leopold and Loeb thrillkilling case that shocked Chicago and the world in 1924 – is more than slick entertainment. The show, running Nov. 20 to Dec. 2 with 8 p.m. performances at Renegade Studios, 125 E. 2nd St. Vancouver, is the latest production by wellknown director (and White Rock Players Club board member) Ryan Mooney and features White Rock-born-

and-raised Michael Gill as Richard Loeb and Braedon Cox as Nathan Leopold. Composer and lyricist Stephen Dolginoff has created what Mooney describes as “a creepy twoman musical” from the story of the two wealthy University of Chicago law students who murdered 14 year-old Robert Franks in an attempt to demonstrate their superior intellects by committing a ‘perfect’ crime. When arson and petty crime aren’t stimulating enough, the young men kidnap and murder Franks, Loeb’s second

cousin, believing that as Nietzschean ‘supermen’ they are exempt from the laws that govern ordinary men. A story of complicated motivations, with homosexual overtones, Thrill Me is a follow-up to Fighting Chance’s most recent show, Little Shop of Horrors, which closed recently after successful runs at White Rock’s Coast Capital Playhouse and the Jericho Arts Centre. “This season I really wanted to examine the heights that people will go to for love,” Mooney said. “This true story shows just what one man is willing

to do to find love in an era and in a city that would dismiss him in a heartbeat if they were aware of his homosexuality. He strikes a Devil’s deal, but is he an innocent victim in pursuit of love, or is he actually the one pulling the strings?” Mooney said the intimate 50-seat warehouse venue – an out-of the way meeting place like the ones chosen by Leopold and Loeb to discuss their crimes – is highly appropriate for the dark themes of the show.

Saskatoon team takes home championship title and trophy

Langley Rams miss out on Canadian Bowl Gary Ahuja

D

Times Sports

own by 15 points early in the third quarter, the Saskatoon Hilltops rallied to score the game’s final 17 points to capture their third-straight Canadian Bowl championship. The Hilltops turned a 21-6 deficit into a 23-21 lead as they defeated the Langley Rams on Saturday (Nov. 10) afternoon at McLeod Park. The Rams, which moved to Langley just two years ago after decades in South Surrey, were in search of their first Canadian Bowl championship while the Hilltops won for the 16th time, including the seventh time in the past dozen years. After the game, Hilltops coach Tom Sargeant, still wet from his Gatorade shower, said his fifth-year veterans led the way. “We needed to get some energy and find a way to make plays and Mike Waldron is the one that gave us that shot in the arm,” Sargeant said. “We have a champion’s heart.” With Saskatoon trailing 21-6, Clayton Sarich forced the fumble which Waldron recovered – his second of the game – and returned to the Langley five-yard line. Following the turnover, the Hilltops’ Andre Lalonde scored to make it 21-13 and they never looked back.

Gary Ahuja photo

Langley Rams were defeated at the Canadian Bowl 23-21 by the Saskatoon Hilltops Nov. 10 at McLeod Park. “After that, the offence got a little bit of confidence and then we were able to rock and roll,” Sargeant said. The long-time coach – he is in his 15th year as head coach and has been on the Hilltops’ staff for 26 seasons –  was impressed by a Langley squad he knew little about, other than what he saw on tape. “They are a lot better on the field

than they are on tape,” he said. “They have speed (and) the way they attack the ball, that is something we are not used to. That is as good a football team as I have seen in a while.” The Rams led 14-6 at the half and Saskatoon squandered a great chance to pull within a point after throwing an interception in the Langley end zone with a minute to

go before intermission. “We didn’t play well (in the first half) but the reason was Langley was better than us,” Sargeant said. “We needed to man up and figure out a few adjustments and come out with a concerted game plan.” Part of the team’s adjustment was running a couple of fake punts. “We ran three or four fakes and a couple worked and a couple didn’t,”

he said. “But at the end of the day, that was part of our plan. We didn’t want Six (Nick Downey) touching the ball; he is a special player.” The Hilltops won despite committing four turnovers, as Tanner Hamade picked off a pair of passes, while Carlo Graziano intercepted a throw in the end zone and Nick Felicella also picked off a pass. The Rams fumbled twice and also had an interception. Afterwards, Langley coach Jeff Alamolhoda said they win as a team and they lose as a team. “Everyone put forth the effort, we just didn’t come up with the outcome that we wanted to at the end,” he said. With two minutes remaining, the Rams did get to the Saskatoon 32-yard line, but an incompletion, a holding call and then a block in the back pushed the team out of field-goal range. That would be the last time the Langley offence touched the ball. Despite the loss, Alamolhoda said he was proud of his team. “Nobody expected us to be here,” he said. “They come in here and tell us it is David vs. Goliath and 23-21 in my opinion, with an opportunity for us to win the game down the stretch… isn’t David vs. Goliath.”

Surrey Eagles soar to second-place spot in Coastal Division Rick Kupchuk Black Press

In a weekend that saw a four-game win streak come to an end, the Surrey Eagles aren’t complaining. The BC Hockey League team earned five of a possible six points, including three of four while on a two-game trip in the north Okanagan, and have taken over sole possession of second place in the Coastal Division. Now on an 8-1-0-1 (won-loss-tiedovertime loss) since the Thanksgiving weekend, the Eagles edged the Salmon Arm Silverbacks 3-2 in overtime Friday night, lost by the same score in extra time Saturday in Vernon against the Vipers, then derailed the Coquitlam Express by a 6-1 score Monday afternoon in the South Surrey Arena.

Tied with the Express for third place a week ago, Surrey is now three up on Prince George and five better than Coquitlam. The Eagles took 33 of their 36 shots at the Coquitlam goal in the first 40 minutes, finding the net a half-dozen times. Drew Best sandwiched a pair of goals around an Express power play tally in the first period, then completed his hat trick five minutes into the second for a 3-1 Surrey lead. Demico Hannoun, Nicolas Peirog and Stefan Burzan added to the Eagles goal total before the second intermission. The Express dominated play in the third period, outshooting their hosts 17-3, but couldn’t beat Michael Santaguida in the Surrey goal. The weekend road trip began with Santaguida earning first-star honours in a

win over the Silverbacks, as the 19-year-old netminder stopped 33 of 35 Salmon Arm shots. Surrey, which managed just 21 shots on goal, didn’t lead until Jordan Klimek scored two minutes into overtime. Kevan Kilistoff and Trevor Cameron tallied in regulation time, each goal tying the game after Salmon Arm took a one-goal lead. It was the Eagles having an edge in shots on goal Saturday in Vernon, only to lose in overtime. Goaltenders dominated with Surrey holding a 48-40 edge. Having earned 11 points in six games in the month of November, the Eagles have a chance to move into a first-place tie with the Chilliwack Chiefs when the two teams clash tomorrow (Friday) night in the South Surrey Arena. The game is at 7 p.m.

Q

uestion: I started dating a man about a year ago and moved in with him about six months ago. I have always been a regarded as very attractive and I have had my choice of men in my lifetime and I therefore have not taken any steps to make sure that I am secure in my older years. I therefore have no assets except very good looks and great personality. I have been pressing my man to marry me because I understand that if we become married I will own half his assets as long as I stay with him for a reasonable period of time. I’m right aren’t I? nswer: you are right for the time being, but you are wrong if the proposed family law legislation is passed on March 18, 2013. That legislation is a sea change from the 1978 legislation, and if you divorce your proposed husband gets to keep the assets that he brought into the marriage.

Blair Johnston was named to Team BC on Nov. 8.

Locals to run for Team BC Two Peninsula athletes will be on Team BC at the Canadian Cross Country Championships Nov. 24 at Jericho Beach Park in Vancouver. Blair Johnston and Maureen de St. Croix were among those named to the team by BC Athletics on Nov. 8. Johnston, who now runs for Trinity Western University (He is a White Rock Christian Academy grad) leads the BC Senior Men’s team even though he is only a first-year senior. Johnston made his mark in BC High School Track in 2010 when he won two medals at distance running. At the BC Cross

Country championships last month, he led the Senior Men’s race for the first half and hung on for third. The winner was from Ontario and the second-place finisher is going to Japan to race, so that leaves Blair as the top-ranked Team BC runner heading into the national championships. Maureen de St. Croix runs for Ocean Athletics. As well as competing in the national championships, where Ocean Athletics is co-hosting the event, de St. Croix will also work as a meet director and guide a team of younger competitors in the community race.

Mariners named volleyball champs Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

The Earl Marriott Secondary (EMS) Mariners did not have an easy ride to the Surrey Grade 8 girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; volleyball championship. Mariners coach Raymond Lee, a teacher at the school, said the 11-member team drew some tough opponents en route to their Thursday night victory at Sullivan Heights Secondary to take the top banner Nov. 8. First, the 13-year-old players had to beat Elgin Park Secondary in the quarter-final, then get past South-

Lee said, thanks to a height advantage that helped them control the net. But the Pacific Academy players made the Mariners earn their win, returning shot after shot. Next up for the victorious Mariners is the regional Fraser Valley championships, which start this Friday (Nov. 16) in North Delta.

NESIMIUK, Richard Bruce passed away on October 21, 2012 at the age of 74. Richard was born in Cold Lake, Alberta on May 29, 1938 to Metro and Ruby Nesimiuk. He spent his childhood and youth in Glendon and Edmonton, Alberta. Following university, Richard worked for Ortho Pharmaceutical and married Gail in 1969 in Edmonton. In 1970, they moved to B.C. and Richard first worked for Jeffs Realty where he met his future business partners and formed Bay Realty. From 1988-1992 Richard and Gail had the opportunity to work with CAMA Services in Thailand. They returned to South East Asia in 1996 to work with Food for the Hungry where they developed their love for the country of Myanmar and the Burmese people. In 2002 Richard was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor. Following its removal, the tumor continued to grow back resulting in multiple surgeries and rounds of radiation. After settling back in White Rock, Richard continued to travel back to Asia each year until he could no longer travel. In 2008, their son, Bryan, a Snowbird pilot with the Canadian Air Force was tragically killed.

Mary Hay (nee McAuley) April 13, 1923 - November 9, 2012 With bittersweet sadness the family of Mary Hay announces her peaceful passing on November 9, 2012 at The Dr. Hogg pavilion in White Rock, BC. Mary was born in Brandon, Manitoba on April 13, 1923 to Elizabeth (nee Muirhead) and Henry McAuley of Carnegie, Manitoba. Mary is survived by her son Allan (Karen), Grandchildren Deborah (Jean Pierre) Marion, Fraser (Michelle) Hay, and Great Grandchildren Ainslie and Gavin Hay and Jonah Marion of White Rock, BC. Mary is also survived by Brother Jim (Sarah) McAuley of Brandon, Manitoba and cousins, nephews and nieces in Canada, Australia, Scotland and England. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband George (1992), her son Ralph (1955), her sisterin-law Mildred McAuley and her nephew Wayne McAuley. Mary was raised in Carnegie, Manitoba and spent much of her adult life in Brandon. Mary also lived in High River, AB, Wetaskiwin, AB and since 2003 in White Rock, BC. Mary served her country during WW2 as a civilian at Number 12 Air Force Training Centre. Following her marriage, Mary worked as a homemaker, mother and worked alongside her husband in his greenhouse business and beekeeping. Mary was a supportive caregiver to anyone who needed her. Those who knew Mary will remember her kind and loving nature, her quiet sense of humour, her generosity, her strength, her devotion to family, friends and God, her love of children and of course, her cookies! Private family services were held November 11, 2012 in White Rock, BC. If friends so desire, in lieu of flowers, a donation to your charity of choice would be appreciated. Expressions of sympathy may be made at www.victoryfuneralcentre.com

The tumor returned cancerous at the beginning of 2012. He was hospitalized and spent the last months of his life in the good care of Morgan Place. He will be greatly missed by his wife, Gail â&#x20AC;&#x201C; his children Kara (Todd) and Marlea, his daughter-in-law Melody and his granddaughters, Milann, Kiera, Kamrin, Mikka and Luci, sister, Joan (Derek), nephew Mark (Sue-Young), nieces Karen (Tony) & Dawn (Brian).

KOOYMAN, Ruth (nee Hedemann) January 17, 1930 - November 11, 2012 With sadness in our hearts we, the family announce the passing of Ruth in Peace Arch Hospital on Sunday Nov. 11 2012, after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Ruth was born in Perth, Western Australia on Jan 17, 1930. After travelling extensively, she settled in British Columbia in 1958, working as a legal secretary for Guild-Yule and Company in Vancouver. Ruth came to the South Surrey-White Rock area occasionally since the late fifties and settled in the Ocean Park area permanently in 1968 when she married her husband Harmen. The two raised their son Daniel and lived in the same house until ill health took her to Peace Arch Hospital where she spent her last two months in the loving care of the staff there. When the Peace Arch News was just starting under Roy Jelly, he came to Ruth to ask if she would join this small upstart newspaper. She loved working at the PAN, where she was known for her attention to detail and keeping the reporters and editors in line when it came to spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Ruth was very active in the community, volunteering with many organizations, including the Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary. She also spent countless hours making gifts to be sold in hospital gift shops in support of the Hospice Society. Ruth is survived by her husband Harmen of Ocean Park, son Daniel, daughter-in-law Kimberley, and grandson William of Fall River NS, as well as sisters Olga and Janice, both of Mandurah, Western Australia. A celebration of Ruthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life will be held on Saturday, November 17, 2012, at 1pm at Sunnyside United Church, 15639 24th Ave, Surrey BC. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society are greatly appreciated.

Information session shifts from inlet to Fraser Valley

Oil terminal a danger zone, pipeline firm told Jeff Nagel Black Press

The risk of a marine oil spill dominated the first public information sessions that Kinder Morgan is hosting in the Lower Mainland on the planned twinning of its Trans Mountain pipeline. But the expected five-fold increase in the number of tankers sailing through the Second Narrows is not what worries Belcarra Mayor Ralph Drew. He believes the twin hulls, two pilots and three tethered tugs shepherding each big tanker, along with other precautions, mean the diluted bitumen should move safely through Burrard Inlet once it’s loaded. Instead, Drew Ralph Drew is focusing on Belcarra mayor the Westridge terminal in north Burnaby as a critically vulnerable point where safety improvements are needed – whether or not the pipeline expansion proceeds. “That loading terminal sits directly on top of a fault zone,” Drew said. “The scenario I believe is possible is an earthquake that causes a rupture of the pipeline.” It might be a seismic event similar to the one that sheared off the side of Burnaby Mountain 50,000 years ago, he said, this time sluicing oil into the ocean nearby. Much would depend on how fast Kinder Morgan could shut off the flow of oil and how quickly crews respond to contain and clean up any oil that reaches the water. And Drew says he remains dissatisfied with the speed of the response to a 2007 spill in north Burnaby and concerned that federal safety regu-

lations only cover the pipeline itself and tankers, but not the terminal. Kinder Morgan is charged with cleaning up land-based spills and its responsibility only extends to the end of its pipe, while shipping firms take responsibility only once a full tanker leaves the dock. That leaves a potential legal “black hole” if a terminal or pipeline accident puts oil into the water before a ship leaves, Drew said. “So long as that ship’s at Kinder Morgan’s dock it’s their loading ter-

minal, it should be their responsibility,” he said, adding the company should be required to have its own trained emergency responders on site. He said Western Canada Marine Response Corp., the cleanup response agency contracted by shipping firms, should act only as a backup at the terminal. Drew proposes double booms separated by an inflatable spacer be set up in the water around the terminal and tanker zone, instead of

the single boom now used – making it much less likely that oil might escape in a bigger spill or choppy water. Residents along Burrard Inlet are also concerned about the bright lights and noise pollution at night from the big ships and Drew said he’s urging Port Metro Vancouver to address the problem now. Information sessions in the second half of November shift further inland along the Trans Mountain right-of-way, which runs through Burnaby, Coquitlam, Surrey and up the Fraser Valley near Highway 1. The pipeline was built nearly 60 years ago and homes, schools and other development has since sprung up along the route. But residents won’t know how close the new pipeline may come to their property until Kinder Mor-

gan formally applies in late 2013 to build the $4.3-billion project and unveils the proposed corridor, which could deviate from the current one in some places. “They should definitely provide a clear route,” anti-pipeline activist Sheila Muxlow said. “It seems to us Kinder Morgan is going through this process in a backwards fashion.” Muxlow and others with the Pipe Up Network intend to bring their own protest message to the meetings and press Kinder Morgan over the firm’s safety record and capacity to handle spills. The potential risk to groundwater aquifers from an oil spill in Chilliwack and Abbotsford will be a key issue, she said. “In Chilliwack we don’t have a backup plan for our water supply,” she said. “The water contamination risk alone is enough to really mobilize people to say ‘Whoa, that’s not worth the risk.’” Others, she added, increasingly believe it’s wrong to “build more infrastructure that holds us hostage to a fossil-fuel based economy.” A spokesperson for Kinder Morgan said the company wants advice from residents on where the route should go, adding that will help guide the engineering and environmental teams planning the pipeline corridor. “We’re very early on,” said Lizette Parsons-Bell, adding more rounds of consultation are expected next year and then again after the formal project application is filed. Trans Mountain drop-in information sessions are slated Nov. 21 for Surrey (Ellendale Elementary, 14525 110A Ave., 5-8 p.m.) and Nov. 22 for Langley Walnut Grove Secondary, 8919 Walnut Grove Dr., 5-8 p.m. Sessions are also slated for Vancouver, Abbotsford and Coquitlam For specific times and locations see www.transmountain.com

Trucking offers job opportunities for B.C. residents Job seekers are in luck when it comes to the commercial road transportation industry in British Columbia. Trucking companies throughout BC require professional drivers, mechanics, dispatchers and operations staff right now, which means that job seekers with experience and/or training may find work within their preferred region. For those considering training prior to joining the workforce, demand for skilled workers in the industry is likely to grow – to 2020 and beyond. There are a number of reasons for this. For truck drivers, the industry is facing a North America-wide shortage because most are 45 years of age or older and nearing retirement (in fact, in Canada, according to a report by the Canada Trucking Human Resources Council, 58 percent of long-haul truck drivers fall in this age range). Similar shortages exist for other jobs, including diesel engine and heavy duty mechanics. Aside from worker shortages, economic growth in the Asia-Pacific

connections, and border crossings, from Prince Rupert to Surrey, with links supplied by trucking. Equipment in many companies is state of the art, meaning increased comfort and ease for drivers and opportunities for mechanics to work with technologically advanced

Gateway is also driving demand for workers in transportation. This applies not only to companies in the Lower Mainland, but in other regions as well, since the AsiaPacific “Gateway” is actually made up of an integrated supply chain of airports, seaports, rail and road

systems, keeping both their skills and interest engaged. Dispatch relies on sophisticated tracking and routing systems. Others on the operations side also use information technology of many kinds to deal with everything from licences and permits, to customer services, accounting, sales and marketing. And, people joining the industry have many career choices. Drivers, for example, may work close to home as pick-up and delivery or short-haul drivers. Those who like the idea of travelling across Canada or North America can become long-haul drivers for an employer or work as owner-operators. Drivers may haul consumer goods, fuel, logs, heavy-duty equipment, livestock – most of what we purchase or consume spent some time on the road with a commercial truck! If you already have experience as a driver, mechanic or operations worker, most companies advertise jobs on their websites. Members of the BC Trucking Association from

Legal Services

across the province may post jobs under Careers on www.bctrucking. com, and the provincial and federal governments maintain job sites at WorkBC (http://www.workbc. ca/Jobs/) and Working in Canada (http://www.workingincanada. gc.ca/ - choose to Explore Careers by Occupation, then by Region). Within your own community, it may also pay to approach a company you’d like to work for, drop off a résumé and inquire if and when they’ll be hiring. If you’d like to enter the industry but need training, there are also many avenues to explore. Although there is not a standard training course for professional drivers, there are numerous private schools throughout BC that offer programs.

In many cases the initial reaction of suspects in criminal cases is to claim they were under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The issue then becomes to what extent their condition can be relied upon as a defence to a criminal charge. In this regard, there is a difference between "general intent offences" and "specific intent" cases. In "general intent cases," such as impaired driving, one would be hard pressed to rely on intoxication as a defense, where the suspect voluntarily consumed alcohol before being stopped; or where one generally intended to assault another person but did not actually intend to cause bodily harm. Some offences, however, require a suspect to have the specific intention to commit the offence. Murder, for example, requires such a "specific intention" as opposed to manslaughter, which only requires a "general intention." Therefore, even if as a result of self-induced, voluntary consumption of alcohol results in the suspect lacking the specific intent to kill, the proper verdict may be manslaughter and not murder. Other "specific intent" offences may include robbery, break and enter, whereas "general intent" offences may include assault and sexual assault, as examples. As one may not be aware of the differences between specific and general intent offences, it would be better to rely on one's right to remain silent and request a lawyer, rather than blurt out the first thing that comes to one's mind.

Wood smoke a burning Metro issue Jeff Nagel Black Press

LF

After fielding complaints for years about homes that burn firewood and smoke up the neighbourhood, Metro Vancouver says it will consider new regulations to help clear the air. No decisions have been made on exactly what approach to take, but regional district staff have concluded wood smoke from home fireplaces and stoves may pose a significant health risk. “The options range from an outright ban in urban areas to things like ensuring wood stoves meet certain emissions standards or having burning limited to pAge: 7.3125”w x 10”H so many days per month,” said Ray Robb, Metro’s environmental regulation and enforcement division manager. The region is working with the Vancouver Coastal and Fraser health authorities

Bans considered for fireplaces.

to get a better assessment of potential health impacts. Metro gets about 90 wood smoke complaints a year. A staff report said residential wood burning can lead to spikes in fine-par-

ticulate levels and accounts for an estimated 16 per cent of all fine-particulate emissions in the region, compared to 10 per cent coming from all large permitted industries. But officials believe wood smoke causes an even higher proportion of harm to health because the emissions happen close to where people live and chimneys aren’t designed to dissipate smoke. Not everyone is convinced action is needed. Langley City Coun. Gayle Martin, vice-chair of Metro’s environment and parks committee, said Metro should leave the issue up to individual cities. “I don’t think Metro Vancouver needs to ban wood smoke,” she said. “Look at wood smoke compared to vehicles. Do you plan on banning vehicles? Are we going to ban something every time we get a complaint?”

Bhander to stay in jail for murder

news

Sheila Reynolds Black Press

Appeal denied

Thursday, November 15, 2012 Peace Arch News

A Surrey man who shot another to death in 2008 will remain in prison after the appeal of his second-degree murder conviction was dismissed last week. Raminder (Mindy) Singh Bhander was found guilty in July 2010 of shooting 24-year-

old Tejvir (Sunny) Bains to death. He was handed a mandatory life sentence with no chance of parole for 10 years. Bhander appealed the conviction, arguing the judge erred in admitting certain statements and that police violated his rights during questioning when he confessed to killing Bains. The three B.C.

Faith

Court of Appeal justices disagreed and his appeal was denied in a Nov. 7 decision. During the trial, the court heard that in late January 2008, Bhander, Bains and Bainsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; girlfriend had a fight at a Surrey restaurant. The runin was followed by an angry voicemail left for Bhander. Bhander then went to a

friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house and the two men went with a loaded gun to the townhouse shared by Bains and his girlfriend near 125 Street and 72 Avenue. As Bhander neared the entrance, Bains came downstairs towards Bhander with a sword. Bhander fired the gun repeatedly, hitting Bains four times, Bains died at the

scene. Bhander was arrested and charged a few weeks later. During the trial, Bhander admitted he shot Bains, but claimed it was in self-defence. At the time of Bhanderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conviction, police said Bhander was a longtime gangster who was heavily involved in the drug trade and who they were happy to see off the streets.

UDI hands out Awards for Excellence

ParkLane honoured for River District The Urban Development Institute – Pacific Region hosted its biennial Awards for Excellence last month, which recognized amazing development projects from across British Columbia. Among the winners was ParkLane Homes’ River District Centre, which won the Best Outside the Box award. “Our goal with River District Centre was to take a unique approach to community building. We wanted this building to become a neighbourhood hub, and just a year after opening, we couldn’t be happier with the results we see today,” says ParkLane COO Ben Taddei. “Our team thanks

the Urban Development Institute and congratulates all the winners and nominees for their continued dedication to innovative and sustainable development in B.C.” Other winners at the awards included Bosa Properties and Adera. “I think all the award winners and nominees can take great pride in what the development industry has accomplished these past two years,” says UDI President and CEO Anne McMullin. “The contribution from our industry sustains a healthy urban fabric and a strong B.C. economy.” The full list of winners is available on www.udi.bc.ca.

A host of amazing details

Elegance can be found at Emaar’s Wills Creek By Kerry Vital

Emaar Properties Canada is building on their reputation for amazing homes with Wills Creek, a townhome development in South Surrey’s rapidly growing community of Morgan Creek. Emaar is known for building beautiful homes, and this project is no different. “There is not a building out there that will beat our quality,” says sales manager Enrica Paris. The spacious townhomes, ranging from 2,158 to 4,700 square feet, feature Craftsman-style architecture, with cedar-shingled roofs, coarse granite stone cladding and herringbone brick pavers on the patio and sidewalks. Inside, the rich hardwood flooring throughout the main level is one of the first things you notice. The 10-foot vaulted ceilings in most plans are another feature that contribute to the spacious feel of your new home. Huge windows let the light in, while the oversized doors maximize the space. The kitchens are elegant and efficient, with custom-designed Shaker-style cabinetry and a large island finished with a polished granite countertop. That countertop is complemented by a handset textured natural stone backsplash and the under-cabinet and recessed lighting. Stainless-steel appliances are included, along with a stainless-steel canopy range hood from Broan. Moving into the master suite, you feel like you’re entering your own personal oasis. The ensuite bathroom features an oversized soaker tub with a marble deck and a frameless glass walkin shower with a rain shower head. The handset imported glass tiles in the tub and shower surround are chic and lend a touch of class to the proceedings, while the heated tile floor is especially wonderful on cold mornings. The Shaker-style cabinetry continues in here, as well as in the main bathroom. That bathroom also includes its own oversized soaker tub and handset imported porcelain tiles as the tub and shower surround. “We have the lowest price per square foot in the area,” Paris says. “It’s great for everything that is included.” Currently doing presales for its ninth phase, Wills Creek has been very popular with buyers of all types.
