First Nations tout aboriginal project over one backed by BC Lottery Commission

Semiahmoo ‘prime location’ for casino Jeff Nagel Black Press

First Nations are vowing to open their own casinos in B.C., citing the province’s refusal to share its gambling profits while continuing to expand the industry. Reserve land in Surrey, Vancouver and the North Shore would be prime potential sites for a new aboriginal-owned casino in the Lower Mainland, according to Sto:lo Grand Chief Joe Hall, who heads the First Nations Gaming Initiative spearheading the concept. Hall said the Semiahmoo First Nation reserve east of the White Rock waterfront would be perfect. “It would be a prime location,” he said. “Because of the population and the location and because of the American traffic and the traffic from the Island that goes east.”

Hall said the Semiahmoo band has considered building a hotel/ conference centre that might also host a casino, but approval of a proposed destination-casino proj-

ect nearby in South Surrey would torpedo the band’s chances. “I understood they were pursuing that, but there was no consultation with their community at all. So

they were basically shut out.” Another option may be Katzie First Nation land near Fort Langley, Hall said. The South Surrey casino/conven-

A sometimes-hostile crowd of around 300 people groaned and jeered at proponents of a casino in South Surrey during a public hearing organized by opponents of the $100-million project proposed for 10 Avenue and 168 Street. The three-hour hearing was organized by the South Surrey Ratepayers Association, which said the mayors of White Rock, Surrey and representatives of Gateway Casinos and BC Lottery Corporation had been invited to attend.

Neither mayor showed, but BCLC vicepresident of casino and community gaming, Jim Lightbody, and Gateway general counsel James Chen did, along with City of Surrey area planning manager Ron Hintsche. Association president Terry McNeice repeatedly called for civility, telling the audience their indignation should be directed at Surrey council. “We are two meetings away from a casino,” McNeice said. “You have to take this up with your mayor and council members.” › see page 2

tion centre backed by the BC Lottery Commission is just the latest irritant for aboriginal leaders, who have for years asked the province for a two to three per cent share of the $1.1 billion in annual profits B.C. reaps from gambling. Hall said the Sto:lo are unhappy they’ll get no benefit from a newly opened community gaming centre with slot machines in Chilliwack that replaces an old bingo hall. Similar mini-casinos have also sprung up in recent years in Abbotsford, Mission and Langley without contributing to local First Nations, he noted. “The one in Chilliwack is very disturbing because it’s built on former reserve land that used to belong to the Ch’ihl’kway’uhk people.” › see page 4

Attendees at Wednesday’s public meeting were mainly critical of plans for a casino.

‘We are not taking shortcuts’ › from page 1 More than a dozen speakers took the podium to object to the proposed project, on grounds that ranged from concerns about traffic congestion and the potential for crime to the loss of farmland and the issue of compulsive gambling. Among them was former White Rock councillor Margaret Woods, who took issue with Lightbody for using the word “myth” during a television interview to challenge claims about casino-related crime. The word, Woods said, was “unfortunate.” She said she remains convinced that a casino would hike crime despite all the claims to the contrary. Another resident, Mike Steffen, said the project should be built in an industrial area, like other Lower Mainland casinos. “I’m not particularly opposed to casinos, just the proposed area that it’s in,” Steffen said. Ross Buchanan called the complex a “monster” that will destroy the neighbourhood where it’s being built. When Chen said feedback from a Gateway-organized forum showed more than half the respondents supported the project, there were scattered jeers and catcalls. Lightbody got the same response when he said an independent study shows the crime rate was unaffected or dropped in four B.C. communities after casinos were built. “We know we’re not going to be the most popular guys in the room,” Lightbody said.

Marine Drive proposal retains dimensions but higher in the air

Two-foot rise due to city miscalculation Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Proponents of a commercial/residential project that was approved for White Rock’s West Beach area last year want to reduce the number of residential units it will offer, add a fifth building and provide more parking. And while Richmond-based LLW Holdings Ltd. hasn’t asked for more height than what zoning for the 1.14-acre site allows, a slight miscalculation by the city of where the natural grade begins will result in part of the finished product sitting two feet higher than original designs showed, city officials confirmed Monday. “Technically, it’s two feet higher, but it’s not,” city planner Connie Halbert said. “They’re not getting any more (building) height than they were allowed. The physical height is changing because they used the wrong starting point.” The difference was noticed by residents who attended a Nov. 14 public information

meeting on zoning amendments requested for Marine Terraces. After months of discussion and revision, the complex – proposed for five lots, at 14807 Marine Dr., 1184 Oxford St. and 14818 to 14832 Buena Vista Ave. – was approved by council last October. After the site changed hands in September, LLW Holdings Ltd. asked for revisions. The hope now is to build 62 residential units instead of 67; and increase the total number of parking spots to 124 from 99. An increase in the residential floor area is also proposed, to 75,441 square feet from 67,422; as is the addition of a duplex. Reducing the number of residential units would enable the suites to be fine-tuned, and the best units to be further upgraded, architectural technologist Stefan Larose told Peace Arch News Monday. “It’s unfortunate for those residents who thought the height limit was at a certain place and based on further review of the

Stefan Larose greets residents last week.

technical information, it’s actually required to be two feet higher,” he said. Architect Tim Ankenman attributed the height difference to the addition of parking underneath the commercial units. In order to accommodate it, the project “had to go up a little” so it wouldn’t flood. “We had to raise the parking up so it wasn’t constantly buried in water,” he said. Ankenman described the proposed changes as negligible and positive. They will

not affect view corridors, he said. “It really should be absolutely non-contentious.” Resident Bob Berger said he had attended the meeting “really wanting to wish them well,” but left not so sure. Some people opted not to attend because advertising implied the changes were to be cosmetic, he said. “I think you’ll find that a lot of people who live up the slope are going to be very, very impacted in terms of their views, and are going to be very upset if there is any increase in height,” Berger said Berger said he and his wife, Sandra, both submitted feedback supportive of the changes, but wonder now if that was a mistake. “I think a lot more discussion has to be had on this subject,” he said. Halbert said anyone with concerns can “absolutely” raise them at a public hearing that will be scheduled for the new year if council gives the amendments first and second reading next month.

Funeral today

Officer mourned Kevin Diakiw Black Press

The funeral for a popular Surrey RCMP officer who died in the line of duty last week is to take place at the Langley Events Centre this afternoon (Tuesday) at 1 p.m. Police were expecting thousands of people to attend to pay respects to Const. Adrian Oliver, who was killed in a motor vehicle collision last Tuesday. Police and emergency personnel will be in full attendance and a march is to take place before the funeral. The Langley Events Centre, Adrian Oliver at 7888 200 St., has seating for more than 5,500 people. While the public is invited to attend, seating priority will be given to Oliver’s family, friends, colleagues and those in uniform. The service will be broadcast live at www.livestream.com/rcmpgrc Oliver, 28, had been with the Surrey detachment for more than three years. He was on duty when his unmarked police car and a semi-trailer collided in the intersection of 64 Avenue and 148 Street in Surrey’s Sullivan neighbourhood. In confirming Oliver’s death, RCMP Asst. Cmsr. Craig Callens said it was an “extremely difficult and sad day for the RCMP.” He extended condolences to Oliver’s friends and family, including his mother, father, stepfather and two brothers. Oliver’s stepfather is a serving member of the RCMP, as is one of his brothers, who is an officer in the Lower Mainland. Since the tragedy, Oliver’s family and the RCMP have received an outpouring of support and condolences from the public.

Surgeries cancelled as emergency patients rerouted to other hospitals

Surrey Memorial Hospital ER floods Jeff Nagel Black Press

Surrey Memorial Hospital’s emergency department was evacuated Monday morning and closed indefinitely – as of Peace Arch News press time that afternoon – after a flood from a water-line break put the ER under several inches of water. The water-main breach happened just before 9 a.m., when the line was hit by an excavator operated by a sub-contractor helping build SMH’s new emergency department and critical-care tower. Fraser Health spokesperson Tasleem Juma said 25 patients in the ER at the time were relocated to other parts of the hospital, which remained open. Ambulances took patients to other hospi-

tals, and patients who arrived at the SMH ER were being triaged first at the ambulance bay entrance, then at nearby Jim Pattison Outpatient Centre, where a 40-bed emergency unit was set up. “We are encouraging people to go to another hospital if possible,” Juma said Monday morning. “If this hospital is the one that’s closest, they can come here and we will take care of them.” Juma said Peace Arch Hospital is one of the alternative hospitals being recommended to people who arrive at Surrey Memorial’s temporary emergency unit by their own transportation. She said it was possible some triaged patients might be transported from SMH to Peace Arch by the B.C. Ambulance Service. All non-essential surgeries at SMH were

postponed, including cataract surgery. Most of the flooding was in the ER, but the medical imaging department also on the hospital’s first floor was affected. At press time, Juma had no estimate yet of damage or reports of damage to equipment. She said water was “up to your ankles” at the peak of the flood. The broken line was regular water – not a sewer line, as first feared. Fraser Health officials say that while the water is not contaminated, it is muddy and poses a big cleanup challenge. A wall burst within the hospital after a pipe behind it ruptured. While no patients were injured, a hospital staffer is believed to have been hurt after slipping and falling.

Band ‘always open to casino’ Jeff Nagel Black Press

A Semiahmoo reserve casino would have the same advantages of proximity to Highway 99 and the U.S. border as one now proposed nearby in South Surrey. It would also be closer to an existing transit route and the White Rock restaurants and shops, according to Semiahmoo band councillor Joanne Charles. “It would be separate from a residential area,” she said, adding it also wouldn’t mean development of land previously zoned for agriculture. “We have a direct access right off of the highway.” Charles stressed her band has not proposed a casino but did tell Surrey council some time ago that it wanted to build a hotel/

convention centre.

‘Tough year’ for South Surrey and White Rock Chamber of Commerce

Encouraging reports at AGM Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

The South Surrey and White Rock Chamber of Commerce is back in the black after working to trim expenses and boost membership, outgoing president Gary Hollick told the chamber’s annual general meeting last week. “This time last year, we were in a horrible spot,” Hollick said Wednesday, noting the chamber had been $20,000 in the red and unable to meet payroll. “There wasn’t one single thing that went wrong, just a whole bunch of little things.” Hollick said the board decided to focus efforts on increasing membership, improving benefits and on broader issues like health care, transportation and education, rather than getting bogged down by what he described as “speed bump” issues that affect only a few people. Membership is up five per cent, and that was after the books were “purged” of inactive members, he said. The chamber is $77,000 in the black, but more remains to be done, Hollick cautioned. “This organization is not out of the woods,” he said. Chamber executive director Cliff Annable says the recovery is the result of making fundamental improvements.

White Rock Mayor Wayne Baldwin swears in the new chamber. “We’ve watched expenses and we’ve increased revenue, frankly,” Annable said. His position’s salary was one of the cuts. Annable was hired in January for $1, then was paid a monthly salary starting in March. (He would not disclose his wages, when asked by Peace Arch News, but said it is “a lot less” than his predecessors.) “I plan to continue on,” Annable told PAN, “(but) it’s up to the board.” He is optimistic about the chamber’s future. “We have a lot of money in the bank, we’ve got a lot of positives.” White Rock Mayor Wayne Baldwin swore in the new board

This should serve as a great incentive for those who have yet to register with TrEO, the arm of the provincial government overseeing the tolling program. Those who register by Nov. 30 will receive 20 free trips over the tolled bridge, and will pay half-price tolls for the first year. This is a good reason to register, as it will take some of the sting out of the tolls. It is also fair, as the entire highway improvement project will not be complete when the tolls go into effect. One other benefit of registering with TrEO is that there will no longer be a need for those who are registered to have transponders to cross Golden Ears Bridge at the lowest rate. The two tolling systems will be integrated. This is also a very shrewd marketing strategy – something that was completely lacking when TransLink opened the Golden Ears Bridge, which remains mostly empty because of a lack of any incentive to use it. While some experts have predicted the Golden Ears will become busier when tolls begin on the Port Mann, that seems far-fetched. Why would any driver wish to pay more to cross that particular bridge, in a direction that isn’t the most optimal? There are relatively few work destinations near the bridge on that side of the river for Surrey and Langley residents. While more people from Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows commute south of the river to work, the numbers aren’t vast. The tolls on both bridges remain very unfair to residents who must regularly cross the river. There are no tolls on any other portion of the new highway, which is being almost completely rebuilt. There are no tolls on bridges or river crossings anywhere else in the Lower Mainland, or on the Sea-To-Sky Highway. Nor are there reasonable free alternatives to the two bridges. The Pattullo simply can’t handle much more traffic at peak times, and the Alex Fraser Bridge is also very crowded. Getting to it is a challenge during busy times. Highway 99 may be an alternative for a few South Langley and South Surrey residents, but only if their final destination is somewhere close to the west side of Vancouver. The net result of bridge tolls may well be that people move closer to their jobs and avoid optional trips across the Fraser. This could provide a welcome boost for local businesses.

By the way, they’ve been sexually and physically abused, jumped through 30 foster homes, and now we want to label them again?” This is not to suggest that the existing B.C. effort isn’t substantial. The ministry reports that there are 2,221 front-line staff positions, of which 219 are currently vacant. It’s notoriously difficult to recruit, train and keep child protection workers, especially in remote communities. Turpel-Lafond says her latest figures show the child and youth mental health service has 476 staff, with 21 vacancies and a government-wide hiring freeze. And many of those are doing double duty as community service managers. Those managers don’t even have reliable data on case loads, she said. They just know they’re overwhelmed. This is not about political blame. I can trace this problem back to when Grace McCarthy was children’s minister, and the NDP did no better. I’ve learned a bit about Riverview and Tranquille, asylums that were closed because of a modern belief that they were inhumane. At least they offered safety and medical care to even the most damaged people. Right now our enlightened, progressive society can’t even help most of the kids we know are at high risk.

Rolling the dice

Editor: As a longtime South Surrey resident, I’ve learned more about development than I ever needed or wanted to learn. There is one phrase I’ve heard each time that sets alarm bells ringing in my head: “Why should all the money go to Langley?” When I hear this, I know I’m being sold out. I will never see any of the money in question – nor will my neighbours, nor will local businesses. The money will go in someone’s pocket, and the rest of us will be left to pay, in multiple ways, for the new development. The answer has to be “yes.” Let the money from the new casino go to Langley, or Richmond, or Newton or wherever. Ron Chisholm, Surrey n If Surrey council was serious and smart about improving Surrey, they would insist that Gateway Casinos clean up the mess on the North Surrey waterfront for their new casino, rather than place it in pastoral farmland next to residential development in South Surrey. Paul Griffin, Surrey n At first I was opposed to the plans for a casino in South Surrey, where the majority of gamblers will lose their money, but I now enthusiastically applaud the idea. My opinion changed when I saw that the casino will be graced with a performance theatre, restaurants and a hotel. How wonderful, and best of all, this world-class facility will feed funds into the coffers of local municipalities, which means my annual tax bill will drop accordingly. That makes it a capital idea. But let’s not stop at a casino. While we’re at it, let’s build a fully licensed brothel. I am sure South Surrey – and especially White Rock, with its thousands of single adults – presents a severely underserved market for this type of service. We can make it palatable to families by gracing it with a licensed daycare and a world-class recreation centre, with a children’s playground, indoor waterslides and a wave pool. This facility can feed additional dollars into the coffers of local municipalities, which will once again reduce my property taxes and promote the betterment of humanity. Robert Ramsay, Surrey n BC Lottery Corporation was represented by a senior executive at Wednesday’s meeting to discuss the proposed casino in South Surrey. In response to a question about the relationship between BCLC and casino operators, the executive said it is similar to the relationship McDonald’s Restaurants has with restaurant-operator franchisees. It all sounds benign and comforting, but comparing the McDonald’s business model to that of BCLC is misleading to say the least. When McDonald’s wants to open a restaurant in, say, South Surrey,

A proposal for a $100-million destination casino, hotel and convention centre has received criticism from residents. they are competing against many others who have the right to open in the same place. Also, McDonald’s has an internal competition to select the best available operator. BCLC, on the other hand, selects an applicant – no one knows how – and hands them a contract which gives them an exclusive right to that territory. In effect, they have gifted a prize worth tens of millions of dollars to someone they know and are comfortable with. Talk about winning the lottery. The right to operate the casino is a public licence that creates a monopoly. It should be up for competitive bids. There is no transparency in these decisions. History tells us that combining heaps of money and obscurity is a toxic mix in the best of circumstances. When it involves extremely high rewards and oversight by a compromised bureaucracy, expect the worst to happen, because eventually it will. Phil Embley, Surrey n

At Wednesday’s casino meeting, many people spoke eloquently and passionately about gambling addiction, crime and the parties involved not effectively contacting the community until the last minute. Unfortunately, according to the BCLC, Gateway and the City of Surrey, we really are at the 11th hour with this proposal, and the only opportunity we will have for any real input is with our attendance at city hall on Nov. 26 and a potential last meeting scheduled tentatively for Dec. 10. The City of Surrey, BCLC and Gateway will have their casino – at our very great expense – unless we emphatically tell them otherwise by using every tool at our disposal. Inform yourself and, if you care about your kids, our vulnerable seniors, increased traffic, noise, your property values and a host of other problems generated by their huge pile of glass and concrete, get out there and tell them what you think. B.J. Alexander, Surrey n

What is the reasoning behind building a casino in this area? Additional tax revenue for a mismanaged civic government owned by developers. They’re planning to build a casino in an area where the City of Surrey has to build an elementary school and a high school, with all the growth in families coming from the Summerfield area. What is the real revenue for Surrey going to be? Who is this casino going to attract, with casinos in Cloverdale, Langley and Richmond all short distances away? Is this a mandate to build at all costs and worry about everything else after? I question the reasoning of Mayor Dianne Watts, after wasting millions in tax dollars to move city hall all the way to North Surrey, again negating the voice of constituents in the Peninsula. The Peninsula who by far makes the greatest property tax revenue contributions. Kevin Yee, Surrey › more letters page 8

‘Rhetoric and misinformation’ mar debate Most are aware of the proposal under consideration by the City of Surrey to create a new resort casino and entertainment hub at 10 Avenue and 168 Street. As vice-president of Community Gaming Centres at BCLC, I appreciate the opportunity to share some facts. The proposal is a relocation and expansion of existing slot machine gaming in Newton, intended to provide a unique destination for dining, concerts, entertainment, accommodation, conventions and gaming. We arrived at this proposal after conducting marketplace research. This proposal delivers a choice for residents who want a night out without the added cost and time of travel to neighbouring communities. Not surprisingly, this has generated a lot of dialogue about land use and, more broadly, gambling in Surrey. Jim Lightbody For the record, I get it. Gambling BCLC casinos in general can be a touchy subject, and this debate and discussion is an important part of the process, but it’s important that people are basing their opinions and decisions on facts. First, the site of this proposal has been set aside for commercial development by the city since 2004. While the proposed casino would be the first commercial development for the area, it would not be the last. Second, I find claims that BCLC has not been transparent to be unfair. We announced the plan in June, and it received significant media coverage. Since then, representatives have held over 20 meetings with community contacts, including the public, business and

tourism groups, RCMP and community-service groups. On Nov. 7, over 350 people attended Gateway’s information session about the project and almost half completed a feedback questionnaire. Around half of those were positive, while the remaining responses were divided between people who were opposed and those who appeared neutral, but had further questions. This demonstrates that while there is opposition, there are many who see value in the project or want to learn more. Third, there is a troubling misconception that the proposed casino will lead to an increase in crime and problem gambling. The truth is, the facts paint a different picture. A socioeconomic impact study – initiated by the province to assess the impacts of gambling between 2004 and 2006 – found no significant increase in the overall rates of crime or problem gambling. A separate study shows that over the last 10 years, the percentage of adults in B.C. who are at risk of becoming problem gamblers has stayed at 4.6 per cent. Nevertheless, we have programs to promote responsible use of our products, assist those who identify a problem and initiate research to implement better ways to help. This proposal is a major investment in Surrey which, if approved, will offer substantial economic benefits. It will provide 500 full-time jobs, 1,200 jobs during construction, generate revenues for governments and community organizations, all while giving people access to great new amenities in a regulated environment. There is a lot of rhetoric and misinformation out there right now, so I encourage people to review the research and facts available to help inform their point of view.

More casino talk Editor: I am one of the many South Surrey residents who recently found out about the proposed mega complex/casino/entertainment/conference center, and I am not at all happy about it. The proposed location is entirely inappropriate. It is a rural farm land, and it is too close to residential neighbourhoods. This type of facility belongs in a more commercial area, closer to mass transit. The facility will bring light and noise pollution and increased traffic to an overcrowded community. There is the strong probability of increased crime, resulting in more costs for policing. Gateway shows its own studies that say crime won’t be a problem, but on the day that I write this, a perfect example of this is the hostage-taking outside a New Westminster casino facility. We have wildlife in abundance in our area, and this will be totally eliminated. As well, Ferguson Creek, a salmon creek, is located on the proposed site. Gateway says the large containment pond will control any water runoff, but accidents do happen. Gambling addiction is real. Encouraging this as a “fun” entertainment is risky, running the risk of serious financial loss and broken families. Is this a proper exchange just to receive tax revenue? The public is just now getting information, although the project is nearing approval. This is not very transparent, and there needs to be a referendum to the public about such a project. Phyllis E. Cole, Surrey n I attended the meeting at the Pacific Inn, in which an overwhelming number – all but three – were against the planned South Surrey casino. This project will become nothing more than a white elephant. How can it hope to make any money in these economic bad times? Other casinos are in the red. Theatres have but a handful of patrons a showing. Restaurants and pubs sit idle most of the time. The almost-vacant parking lot of the Pacific Inn Hotel, just across the way, testifies to the slow economy. The Semiahmoo Hotel in Blaine is closing due to “the collapse of its conferencebooking business as a result of the 2008 recession.” Like the freeway interchange on 16 Avenue – which has a direct correlation, despite what the public has been led to believe – this casino is folly. There will be no profits to put back into good works. It is not a destination that many will see as worth the drive, when so many are closer to home. What it will bring in is criminal elements and social decline. Check the papers, read police reports, talk to cabbies. These all speak the truth as to what has been happening in and around our city. This project is huge. It definitely does not merge well with the rural area. So much for looking out for future generations. To lose valuable green space is a crime against both nature and humankind. Truly, in this economic downturn, now is not the time and this is not the place for such a venture. Martina Herrick, Surrey n I was surprised Wednesday to hear the Gateway representative state they were required to survey the community, which they had done online, and that they were receiving more support than opposition. I visited their website and found the “support the program” tab. When I clicked on it, I found not a question, but a statement which stated “I support the program (check the box)”. There is then only one box with the word “yes” beside it. Of course they have more yes votes than no votes for support if they do not provide an option to vote “no.” How on earth can this be a genuine attempt to gauge relative support and opposition when only one side is given a voice? Bob Askew, Surrey Editor’s note: On the right side of the website is a “quick poll” asking, “What type of amenity do you think will be most beneficial for the community?” The six choices include “none of the above.”

Great news Re: Casino opinion sought, Nov. 15. Gateway says more respondents favour their South Surrey casino proposal than oppose it. Great news. It is about time we get our casino in South Surrey. Can’t wait. Too bad, two years seem far away. Roberta Morel, Surrey

White Rock asking for opinions on capital projects

Dr. Marwa Salman

Resident feedback wanted Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Residents who have something to say about capital projects that are being considered for White Rock are encouraged to get their opinion in. Financial services director Sandra Kurylo said such feedback is analyzed to help city officials determine priorities moving forward. Seven such projects were outlined at a community forum held Nov. 7 at the White Rock Community Centre: improvements to Johnston Road from Thrift Avenue to North Bluff Road; extension of the promenade to Coldicutt Ravine; a children’s playground; development of linear parks; underground wiring for Marine Drive; improved vegetation play for the Hump; and redevelopment of Maccaud Park. Respondents were asked to rank

the initiatives by priority; identify which ones they do not support, if any; what work along Johnston Road should be done (eight projects are listed); which waterfront location they prefer for a playground; and to rank potential locations for ‘linear parks’ – walkways linking city-owned roadends between the town centre and the waterfront (five are named). Kurylo said 50 people came to the Nov. 7 forum, a turnout she said resulted in “great discussion, a lot of

comments, a lot of questions.” Results of that feedback are to be shared in a report to council on Nov. 26. Kurylo noted the seven projects identified are not the only ones the city will have to consider in drafting the next financial plan. “These are specific kind of ideas, bigger-picture ideas,” she said. They may benefit specific properties, she said, and there may be other funding options available, such as grants. For example, with the playground, funds are being raised by White Rock firefighters; and, if underground wiring is installed along Marine Drive, cost-sharing would be explored. Kurylo noted that some of the the projects are “very long-term.” “It really depends on the scope of the year, how it’s going to be focused and what else has to be done,” she said.

B.C.’s high court unplugs smart meter appeal Jeff Nagel Black Press

Opponents of B.C. Hydro’s smart meters have lost a legal challenge against the nearly complete province-wide installation of the wireless devices. The B.C. Court of Appeal refused to consider an appeal by Andrea Collins and Citizens for Safe Technology (CST) in a written ruling released last week. The smart meter opposition group

had hoped to halt the ongoing rollout by getting the court to rule that the program did not have a required certificate from the B.C. Utilities Commission and that the province’s exemption wasn’t legal. The utilities commission had previously rejected the claims but Collins and CST tried appealing it to B.C.’s top court. The court found no substantive grounds to hear a full appeal. The defeat leaves smart meter

opponents hoping the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal will uphold their complaint – to be heard in the new year – that the mandatory installation of wireless meters discriminates against residents who claim to suffer from electromagnetic hypersensitivity. “Hopefully the human rights tribunal will recognize B.C.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Kites have had an impact on the life of Mary-Lynn Schlifer

Heading into the wind Boaz Joseph

M Black Press

ary-Lynn Schlifer once got in “a whole heap of trouble” for her kites. It was 1991, and she had just started teaching a group of kids how to make kites at a summer school in Toronto when an inspector from the school board walked in and saw the materials: Canadian flags in pieces among the sewing machines. The politically incorrect no-no was her first lesson in the world of kites (apart from what she toyed with as a kid), and for the next 20 years, she would evolve into a string sensei, a master in a world of fabric, thread, wood and wind. She even got her Masters degree in sociology a few years later with a thesis titled “Crossing Cultures with Kites.” Schlifer, semi-retired but still a tutor of “regular” subjects for kindergarten to university students, is an encyclopedia on the world of kites. Working at home in Guildford, she shares a few facts with a visitor: • In Thailand, a pakpao (male fighting kite) venturing out into chula (female kite) territory is any female’s game, and vice versa. • Pergamon paper is used for Southeast-

Boaz Joseph photos

Mary-Lynn Schlifer (below) recently held a kite-making workshop at Cloverdale Country Farms (right). She placed first in the Miniature Masters category at the Washington State International Kite Festival with a kite about five mm wide (above).

Asian “wau bulan” kites, which take about 100 hours to make. They’re named after the sound they make in flight: “Wow-oo”. • Linen thread is stronger than cotton, and it’s tested for strength against wind as well as the weight of the kite. • Any materials can be used, including mylar, rip-stock nylon (her favourite) and even tissue paper. Fabric should be cut with the grain or it won’t fly right, she adds. • Most countries have some kind of kite tradition – with particularly long and cultured kite histories in China, Japan and India. (In Samoa, according to legend, only kings were allowed to fly kites.) Over the last two decades in Ontario (where she lived for years), B.C. and the U.S., Schlifer took part in dozens of kite festivals and taught numerous workshops, often focusing on the theme of birds and flying insects. (Anything flying is game for her crafting and personal activities: Bat displays, paper airplanes, even learning to fly a Cessna.)

Schlifer, who was born in Crescent Beach, says she grew up with songbirds and feels kites are a way to connect with nature. “My father and mother both taught me to have a strong interest in the world – in nature in particular.” She says the magic is akin to a phrase uttered by a kite-maker she once met in New York City: “Communicating with the heavens.” Schlifer took a bit of a break from kites after her husband died two years ago. “We have dips and swings in our lives,” she notes.

But like the a kite, she’s felt the surge of the wind, and was back recently teaching a kids to make insect-shaped kites at a workshop in Cloverdale. In August, Schlifer won first place in the Miniature Masters category at the 32nd-annual Washington State International Kite Festival. Her kite was half a centimetre wide. The ribbon she won was about 20 times wider. Schlifer is seeking people, groups or schools interested in learning to build kites. She can be contacted by phone at 604-5825483 or by email at mlschlifer@gmail.com

South Surrey library has an ornamental, vertical garden on a south-facing wall, which suggests there are no administrative barriers to structural gardens. Is it too late to institute a pilot roof garden project on the several long, low warehouses in the new Campbell Heights development along 192nd Street? The most sophisticated possibility, of course, is the Vertical Farm; a self-contained, multi-storey marketgarden built amongst offices and residences.

Food expert speaks at public forum what’s More than 100 people turned out to a public forum last week to listen to “one of Canada’s foremost experts on genetically modified food.” Lucy Sharratt, co-ordinator for the Canadian Biotech Action Network, was the keynote speaker at the event, which was sponsored by GE Free Surrey, GE Free Langley, Society for a GE Free B.C., the Council of Canadians (Surrey-LangleyWhite Rock) and CBAN.

Attendees say Sharratt spoke about the science of genetic engineering, which foods are genetically modified and how genetically engineered food is ubiquitous in today’s diets. She also spoke to concerns around the possibility that alfalfa my be introduced here, said Phil Harrison, a South Surrey resident and member of GE Free Surrey and the Surrey, Langley & White Rock Chapter of the Council of Canadians.

If introduced to the environment, alfalfa, Harrison noted, “will end organic agriculture as we know it.” Longtime Richmond Coun. Harold Steves also spoke at the forum, Harrison said. Next up, Harrison is to present to Surrey’s agricultural advisory committee on Dec. 6; a step on the road to asking council to oppose the planting of genetically modified crops in the city.

Kevin Parton rallies behind the Walk for Memories in support of Alzheimer Society of B.C.

Alzheimer’s disease ‘a karmic injustice’ Sarah Massah

Staff Reporter

evin Parton was too young to understand what was happening when his grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. He recognized she was confused. She was sick. But he didn’t know the extent of her illness. The only indication Parton had was from his father’s reaction. “The last time I remember seeing her, she didn’t remember who we were. I remember my dad was really upset because she couldn’t remember him,” Parton explained. “Eventually, she passed away.” Years later, the South Surrey resident’s life was once again touched by someone suffering from Alzheimer’s. Parton’s then-girlfriend had lost one grandmother to the disease and her maternal grandmother was diagnosed shortly after the two began dating. It was then, at the age of 19, Parton saw firsthand the deterioration of health caused by the disease and understood the strain placed on family members. “I had seen her from her early stages to the later stages. I saw the progression of her deteriorating over three years, with her memory going away. She went through the phase of understanding what was happening, to the phase of

Sharing information about Alzheimer’s is most important job › from page 17 tionally taxing ordeal, Parton recalled. After being a witness to the devastation caused by Alzheimer’s, Parton was determined to get involved to help battle the disease. He began slowly, by running for fundraising events hosted by the Alzheimer’s Society of B.C. But it wasn’t until he took on his job in 2010 as a consultant for Investors Group that he found the perfect way to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s research and support. “Two weeks after I started, I got an email from an advisor who was on the committee for the Walk for Memories for our office and was looking for someone to take over.

I read it and thought this was a position that would fit. I put it on and it was exactly what I wanted to do,” Parton said. Two years in the position and Parton is now the co-chair of the committee for the 2013 Walk of Memories, which will be taking place Jan. 27 at Eaglequest Golf Course at Coyote Creek. As well, he is a member of the organizing committee for the Scotiabank Half Marathon, which raised $35,000 last year. Through Parton’s volunteering, he has continued to meet individuals in the community who are affected by Alzheimer’s, including the honouree from last year’s walk, and fellow Surrey resident, Jim Mann who documented his

The world they think the name is. Those are

the times you just say, ‘OK, let’s go sit down and talk,” Parton laughed. “But many people, unless they have experienced it in their family, don’t know very much about Alzheimer’s.” In order to encourage education, Parton has turned to social media, including a Facebook page, to share information. “It’s important for me to do this because I don’t have a ton of money to donate, but I do have time. That’s what I can give right now with the eventual goal of being able to help out philanthropically.” For those interested in volunteering in the walk, visit www.alzheimerbc.org/Get-Involved/Walk-forMemories.aspxw

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Band battle

Pentland will take place at 7:30 p.m. following a talk by Ian Hampton recalling the Canadian composer and onetime UBC professor, who died in 2000. Pentland’s work, inspired by the Webern school, placed her at the forefront of the Canadian avante-garde, and the Bergmanns’ salute will include her Two Piano Sonata, Three Piano Duets After Pictures by Paul Klee, and Puppet Show. An as-yet untitled new piece for two pianos composed by Marcel Bergmann, commissioned by the Canadian Music Centre, will also be featured, drawing inspiration from Pentland’s work and the use of text and soundscape as part of the musical process. Also featured by the husband and wife duo will be Starvinsky’s Concerto per due pianofortu soli, Hindemith’s Sonata for Piano (Four Hands) and Copland’s El Salon Mexico. At 2 p.m. the same day, a Canadian Music Week student concert will also pay tribute to Pentland. Admission is free, or by donation. For more, call 604-534-2848.

Well-known Peninsula indie pop singer and songwriter Tommy Alto and his band Whisper! Whisper! (including White Rock’s Brian Shannon, drums; Surrey’s Paul Engel, vocals and bass; and Moose Jaw’s Ben Klassen, vocals and guitar) will perform this Wednesday (Nov. 21) at 8 p.m. at Vancouver’s Library Square Public House as part of Vancouver’s Band Fight battle of the bands contest. The local group is among 12 bands from Vancouver and the Lower Mainland in this year’s contest, which continues until Nov. 28, with Wednesday night performances at the Library Square venue. Also competing Nov. 21 will be Surreybased Cry of Silence. Judges of the contest are a music industry panel from co-sponsors Amp Records, The Georgia Straight and 99.3 The Fox. Those who want to improve the local competitors’ chances should note that response from the public will also be important in determining the winner, and judges will watch for the bands able to draw the most supporters. The winner will receive one song professionally produced by Amp Records, plus radio exposure and a feature article, while the top four finalists will also receive individual consultations on marketing their acts from the record company’s producers.

Harmonious Honeywells The Honeywell clan has been synonymous with music on the Semiahmoo Peninsula – and even further afield – for decades and that phenomenon doesn’t show any signs of declining. The music of Rice Honeywell Sr. is a regular feature Wednesday nights (including this Wednesday, Nov. 21) at Five Corners Bistro, where Rice Honeywell Jr. and his wife Cathy are hosts, granddaughter Shannie Honeywell is a waitress and grandson Nate Honeywell helps out in the kitchen. The senior Honeywell, on keyboard, is joined at the bistro by Bob Storms, sax and clarinet player (formerly with the 10th Avenue and Bathtub Gin jazz bands) for several sets of smooth jazz and classic ballads for couples who enjoy music from the swing and big band eras. Rice Jr. has also been known to join the duo on harmonica for boogie and blues numbers at the venue. Reservations are recommended (604-538-5455). Each Friday nights (except Nov. 30), Rice Sr. switches to cornet as leader of Red Beans and Rice (also house band of the White Rock Traditional Jazz Society) for Dixielandstyle evenings at Porter’s Bistro in Langley Township’s historic Murrayville district (reservations recommended, 604-530-5297).

Children’s entertainer Charlotte Diamond, and her Hug Bug Band, will help launch the Christmas season at Semiahmoo Shopping Centre on Friday (Nov. 23) at 6 p.m.

Charlotte Diamond Beloved children’s entertainer Charlotte Diamond will return to Semiahmoo Shopping Centre this Friday at 6 p.m. to officially welcome in the Christmas season (and the arrival of Santa) with performances of seasonal favourites and songs from her latest CD, 24 Carrot Diamond – The Best of Charlotte Diamond. Fans of all ages are invited to bring bells, maracas and shakers to join in on songs like Feliz Navidad, Zulu Carol, I Am A Pizza and All The Nations Like Banana.

Accompanying the singer will be the Hug Bug Band, featuring Diamond’s son Matt on electric guitar and Bob Wishinski on keyboards.

Bergmann pianos The dynamic South Surrey-based piano duo of Elizabeth and Marcel Bergmann will be featured performers at the Barbara Pentland Mini Festival, Saturday, Nov. 24 at Langley Community Music School’s Rose Gellert Hall, 4899 207 St., Langley. Their program A Portrait of Barbara

A return visit to White Rock’s Blue Frog Studios by Canadian vocal chart-topper Alfie Zappacosta – originally scheduled for Nov. 23-24 – has been rescheduled to Jan. 25 and 26 at 7:30 p.m. at the studio, 1328 Johnston Rd. The show will be a follow up to the Live from Blue Frog DVD Zappacosta (We Should Be Lovers, When I Fall In Love Again) recorded at the studios in June 2011. But there’s plenty more music on tap at the venue, starting with a concert by Vancouver hit singer-songwriter Melanie Dekker (Sunday, Nov. 25, 7:30 p.m.). Her roots pop style, showcased in her 2011 album Here & Now, has been described as “warm, punchy and uplifting”. Dekker, who has opened for such major artists as Diana Krall, Faith Hill and Chaka Khan, and is also known for a string of popular YouTube videos, will be joined for the concert by world-class guitarist David Sinclair. Admission is $22. There’ll also be seasonal fun with rocking blues favourites The Mud Bay Blues Band’s Christmas Bash, Saturday, Dec. 8 at 8 p.m., presented by Arbonne International. The veteran band – which has an uncanny ability to get a crowd up on their feet and dancing – has shared stages with such legends as James Cotton, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Long Baldrey, and promises a few surprise special guests for the show. Admission is $25. For more information, call 604-542-3055, or visit www.bluefrogstudios.ca

When local stores are kept in business, it not only keeps jobs in town, but the money spent in your town in a local small business usually stays in town.

Shop in

1. Keep money in your community — Going local first keeps almost 70% of your money in the local economy.

Canada

2. Your community is unique – celebrate it — Spend local and you’re embracing your community’s unique identity. 3. Get way better service — A local business is much more concerned about your customer experience, and keeping you happy. 4. Better selection for you — Local business tries harder to meet your particular needs.

Support the Local Economy

5. More local ownership and jobs — Study after study shows that local small business is the greatest source of job creation. So why wouldn’t we encourage more local start-ups? 6. Help out the environment — This is a biggie – less transportation, lower energy and fuel costs, less excessive packaging… you get the idea. 7. Support community groups — Did you know non-profits receive an average of 350% more support from local businesses than they do from non-locally owned businesses? 8. Better use of community space — Wouldn’t it be better to have more local businesses that can make use of existing empty space? 9. Better public services — More local businesses mean a stronger tax base, and that pays for better public services for your family. 10. These are your friends and neighbours — And they live, work and are invested in your community – just like you!

The Story of $100 Right now if you spend a $100 at a nonlocal business, $57 flies right out of your community to corporate offices around the world.

your community being spent in different ways. So suddenly, your $100 is becoming worth a lot more to the community. Now that’s what we call recycling.

Shifting your spending to a local business means suddenly $68 stays in the community, a 25% increase!

When we all make the change to Keep It Local, it helps to make businesses more sustainable, create more local jobs and gives your community a stronger tax base meaning...

And if more people Keep It Local, you start to see the same original $100 bouncing all around

More and better public services for your family. And to think it all started with $100.

Just starting back? Try the "Quick Results Program"

With over 15 years experience in the fitness industry, Nancy Kreisler has worked with many individuals and has seen the difference that consistent training can make. Think about the following statistic: Did you know

EXPERIENCING HAND PAIN? Find relief at In Motion Physiotherapy & Hand Therapy

that only 25% of everyone who exercise in a gym sees results. Of that 25%, 90% have a personal trainer. Now think about the differences that you can achieve after a short while of working with Nancy. Various training packages are available to allow you to choose not only the frequency of your training, but also the duration of each session. This is called “Flex Training”.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Team sits six points out of first place in Mainland Division

Surrey Eagles drop game to Chilliwack Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

For the first time in three weeks, the Surrey Eagles lost a game in regulation time, failing to make up any ground in their run at first place in the BC Hockey League’s Mainland Division. Friday at South Surrey Arena, the Eagles fell 2-1 to the first-place

Chilliwack Chiefs – who had won four in a row heading into the game and sit six points up on the second-place Eagles. For Surrey, it was the first non-overtime loss since an Oct. 27 defeat to the Langley Rivermen. On Friday, Chilliwack opened the scoring late in the first period when, with his team on the power

play, Chiefs sniper Josh Hansen scored his BCHL-best 17th goal of the campaign. The visitors doubled the lead in the middle frame when, with the Chiefs killing a penalty, David Thompson snapped a wrist shot from the top of the circle that beat Surrey goalkeeper Michael Santaguida.

The game stayed 2-0 until the final stages of the third period, when, with just 2:07 left to play, Surrey forward Demico Hannoun used a nifty toe-drag move out of the corner and fired a shot towards Chillwack goalie Mitch Gilliam. The Chiefs’ netminder made the initial save but Hannoun – who is second on the Eagles with

nine goals – pounced on his own rebound to cut the lead to 2-1. It was as close as the home side would get, however, as Gilliam and his teammates kept the Eagles – who pulled Santaguida for the extra-attacker – at bay over the final seconds. The game was a rough one for › see page 42

Warriors capture Fraser Valley volleyball title Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

When White Rock Christian Academy’s senior girls volleyball team heads to B.C. single-A volleyball provincials in Castlegar later this month, they’ll be aiming for a podium spot that has eluded them since 2009. Three years ago, they finished third, and have followed that with fifth- and sixth-place results in the last two years. It’s a streak they’d very much like to end, said WRCA coach Kelli Niemi. “That quarter-final game the last couple provincials has really given us trouble,” she said.

“So we’d like to get past that, and win our first couple playoff games this time, and put ourselves in a better spot.” The Warriors will likely head into the provincial tournament, which begins Nov. 29, as a top-four seed after claiming a Fraser Valley title last Wednesday at the Langley Events Centre, which played host to all Valley finals, from single-A to 4A, both boys and girls. WRCA defeated Langley Christian to claim the single-A girls title, winning in four games (29-31, 25-10, 27-25, 26-24). “We certainly didn’t play our best, but we played well enough to win,” Niemi said. “It was very, very close.”

Close enough that all but the Warriors’ 25-10 win was decided by two points, with a comeback in the third contest required to win; at one point WRCA trailed in that game 19-11. White Rock libero Tana Whitmarsh was named tournament MVP, while two of her teammates, Remi Kandal and Adriana Weber, were named to the all-star team. Looking ahead to provincials, Niemi thinks her side has as good a chance as any to win it all. “There’s a couple teams from the Okanagan who are very good, but we’ll be in there, too. The girls are very excited.”

At the AAA senior girls level, Cloverdale’s Clayton Heights Night Riders will be at provincials after winning bronze at Fraser Valleys. The tournament is set for Nov. 29-Dec. 1 at Little Flower Academy and Crofton House in Vancouver. At the 4A level, Earl Marriott advanced to provincial championships, after finishing third at Fraser Valleys, with a bronze-medal win over Coquitlam’s Riverside Rapids. Elgin Park, meanwhile, narrowly missed out, losing finishing sixth after a 3-0 loss to Charles Best in the fifth/sixth place game; the top five teams automatically advance, › see page 42

Birds to hit road › from page 41 the Eagles’ special teams, who not only gave up power-play and short-hander markers, but also went 0-for-6 with the man-advantage themselves. Overall, Surrey finds itself ranked in the middle of the league in both power-play and penalty-killing efficiency, but they struggle on home ice; at home, they are 13th out of 16 teams on the power play, and they are last when shorthanded, successfully killing just 74.5 per cent of penalties at South Surrey Arena. Despite the relatively light weekend schedule, the Eagles did play one game earlier in the week, a Nov. 12 affair at home against the Coquitlam Express, which Surrey won 6-1 on the strength of a Drew Best hat-trick and three assists from defenceman Craig Wyszomirski.

Stefan Burzan, Nicolas Pierog and Hannoun also scored, while Brady Shaw – playing against his old team – and Brett Mulcahy had two assists each. The Eagles head north this weekend, for Friday and Saturday games in Prince George against the suddenly reeling Spruce Kings, who started off the year red hot but who have been struggling of late with just one winHALF in the month of November. On Tuesday, Nov. 27, Surrey travels to Langley to take on the Rivermen before finally returning home to Nov. 30 for a game against Coquitlam. That tilt will also serve as the team’s annual Teddy Bear Toss game, where fans are encouraged to bring stuffed toys to the game, and toss them on the ice when the Eagles score their first goal. The toys are then collected for charity.

Season starts The Pacific Seawolves Swim Club got its racing season underway earlier this month, at a meet in Coquitlam Nov. 10-11. The event, which PSW head coach Brad Dingey called “a great team meet”, saw the Seawolves capture gold medals in five of 12 relays. The meet featured four of the province’s top six clubs. “It really indicated that against… the best swimmers in the province, we are doing some good things,” Dingey said. A slew of PSW swimmers finished with top-eight results, among them Catherine Grimme, Jill Xu, Quinton Richert, Mason Lin, Tatum Fry, Darren Yuan, Regina Chan, Ariana Aktary, Annabelle Epp and others. - Nick Greenizan

DENT, Richard Charles, age 81, of Surrey, British Columbia passed away peacefully on Saturday, November 17, 2012 in Surrey. Richard, affectionately known as “Dick”, was born May 6, 1931 to Richard and Adeline (Everett) Dent in Regina, Saskatchewan. He was the eldest of two children. Richard met his beautiful bride, Millie Viona Burns, in Regina. They married on May 20, 1960. In 1969, Richard and Millie left the cold Prairie winters and moved to Burnaby, British Columbia where Richard was the owner of DeMac RV Centre in Surrey. His foremost passion in life was time spent with his family and many friends. Being from Saskatchewan, Richard loved his football. His greatest joy was watching his grandson play for the Edmonton Eskimos, followed closely by watching the Roughrider games. Richard was an avid golfer with a 2 handicap. He served as President of The Regina Golf Club in the 1960s. He will be fondly remembered for his beautiful singing voice and love of music. Richard is survived by his wife, Millie; daughter, Sharon Fleming; son-in-law, John Collins; grandson, Sean Fleming; and many wonderful nieces and nephews. Richard was preceded in death by his parents and sister, Shirley. A Celebration of Life will be held on Wednesday, November 21, 2012 at Victory Memorial Park, 14831 28th Avenue, Surrey, British Columbia at 2:00 pm with Pastor Jeff Renaud officiating. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to The Alzheimer Society of BC at: www.alzheimerbc.org.

Hassell, Reginald Arthur born 1 August 1924 in Vancouver, British Columbia, passed away peacefully with his family by his side on November 15, 2012, in Delta, British Columbia. Reg belonged to a family of entrepreneurs; in his young adulthood, he and his three brothers, Robert, Lawrence, and Richard, founded a construction company, and later went on to pursue independent business opportunities. Their various projects spanned the entire province and played a prominent role in the development of many communities in the Lower Mainland. After retirement, Reg enjoyed spending time on his ranch in the Cariboo and relaxing by the waterfront on Galiano Island. Reg was, however, most contented when surrounded by his family. He is lovingly remembered by his wife of 59 years, Irene; his sons Bill and Greg (Elaine); his daughters Laurie (Patrick), Katherine (Dave), and Lisa (Allen); his twelve grandchildren Lauren (Jeff), Heather (Cory), Jeff (Shana), Kiffy (Sean), Amanda, Kelli, Jocelyn, Julia, Emily, Ella, Trevor and James; his 5 greatgrandchildren Braxton, Isabelle, Jimmy, Caleb, and Cali; and countless nieces, nephews, relatives and good friends. Special thanks to Delta View Habilitation Centre, where Reg was a resident for the two last years. Their wonderful care and attention was greatly appreciated by the family. A Funeral Service will be held on Thursday, November 22, 2012 at 2:00 pm at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre, 14831 28th Avenue, Surrey, British Columbia.

MCDOUGALL, Ronald Earl passed away peacefully in White Rock on November 12th. Earl was born on Feb. 3, 1924 in Vancouver. He leaves behind, Mona, his wife of 50 years, brothers Doug and Alan and sisters Sheila and Isabel. Also 3 children from his first marriage, Bonnie, Ian and Grant and stepchildren Sandra and Bruce and many grand and great grandchildren who all loved their Poppa. Earl maintained a life long commitment to community service through the Lions club. He was a successful technology innovator and businessman with over 60 years experience in the oil, gas and fuel tank storage business. His work took him from Victoria to San Diego, from Squamish to the Arrow Dam project where he supervised under contract, the installation of the turbine pumps. He designed and built an oil safety valve that was installed in many of the Pacific Northwest fishing fleets along with his beautiful and famous Phoenix marine stoves and heaters. Poppa was always wheeling and dealing and dispensing his own kind of wisdom along with a full dose of smiles and happiness. He could never turn down an opportunity to lend a hand or a dollar. He was dearly loved and will be sadly missed. No service will be held at this time. Please no flowers. Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre 604-536-6522

Mowat, David Bruce 1945 - 2012

David Bruce Mowat, aged 67, passed away November 10, 2012 at Vancouver General Hospital surrounded by family after a brief but valiant fight to survive a lung transplant. He is survived by his wife Lynn, son Bradley (Iona), brother Dallas (Joy), sister Mary Buchanan (Alan), sister in law Leslie Frankish, brothers in law Bruce Frankish and Brian Frankish (Margie) all of whom will greatly miss him as will his many cousins, nieces, nephews, parents in law, and friends including his constant companions, Mac and Millie. David had a remarkable ability to engage and validate anyone he encountered acknowledging them with his undivided attention, sincerity and humour. These qualities certainly charmed Lynn his future partner in life who also became his partner in business. Together they created a successful company integral to the Canadian travel industry. Friends and family, always a focus of Dave’s, were included in all aspects of his busy life with Lynn in Calgary, Winnipeg, Toronto and for the last 36 years White Rock B.C. Dave’s desire to make a difference in people’s lives was shown in his involvement in such endeavours as community bike patrol and course marshalling for the Tour de White Rock. Two wheels good but four wheels better summed up Dave’s abiding love for “all things that go” as the number and variety of automobiles, trucks and boats of every type will testify. We hope there is no gas shortage wherever Dave’s jaunts take him! A remarkable friend, an exceptional brother, an unwavering father and a loyal husband David touched many in his full but too brief life making a significant difference for the better in all of our worlds. David’s life will be celebrated by family and friends November 24th 11:00 AM at the Mowat’s Silver Lake property in Whatcom County. The family wishes to thank the Lung Transplant team and the ICU teams at VGH for their compassionate care. If desired, donations may be made to the Solid Organ Transplant Clinic at VGH.
