Family members appeal to driver, after woman airlifted from crosswalk incident

Joggers mowed down in hit-and-run Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

One of two victims is rushed from the scene.

Family members of one of two women injured by a hit-and-run driver in a South Surrey crosswalk Monday night are appealing to the person responsible to come forward. “That would be the right thing to do,” Cathy Halpin, sister of victim Shelley Lammers, said Tuesday. “I think you’ll feel a lot better if you turn yourself in,” her mother, Sally Rossi, said.

Lammers, a 51-year-old Delta resident, suffered multiple injuries when she was hit just before 8 p.m. as she jogged across 152 Street at 32 Avenue with her running partner, 54-year-old Nola Carlson. The impact threw Lammers into Carlson. Lammers suffered a concussion, fractured ribs, a collapsed lung, two broken vertebrae and a lacerated liver, and was airlifted to Royal Columbian Hospital, where she remains in stable condition. Carlson, who was less-seriously injured,

was transported to RCH by ambulance, suffering a broken nose and fractured cheek. Rossi told Peace Arch News Tuesday that her daughter – an avid runner – doesn’t remember what happened but was doing “everything right” to be safe on the road. Both women – who were at the back of a group of runners out that night as part of an organized running clinic – were wearing reflective clothing and headlamps when they were hit. › see page A4

When it came to releasing a pair of recovering bald eagles back to nature Wednesday, ladies first was clearly not the way to go. “So he has a chance to run,” explained Mindy Dick of the male.

Surrey’s estimated share of gaming revenues from the proposed Gateway casino/entertainment complex in South Surrey will be closer to $3 million and not $6 million, as widely reported in the media. That’s the word from Tanya Gabara, community relations liaison for Gateway Casinos. Asked about the different estimate announced at a news conference hosted Tuesday by Surrey’s three chambers of commerce (see page A5), Gabara said that the figures have not changed but acknowledged “the way the information was originally communicated could have been confusing.” She said an estimated $6 million gaming revenue share – featured in the ‘economic benefits’ graphic on the project website www.southsurreyentertainment.com) – includes $2.9 million already received by Surrey from Fraser Downs casino – and is not in addition to it. “(The new project) would provide more than $3 million annually in estimated gaming revenues,” she › see page A4

...and frankly

Fraser Heights, Port Kells, Fleetwood, Clayton and Cloverdale developed and changed as a direct result of the Port Mann opening. Similar change took place in South Surrey and White Rock as a result of the opening of the George Massey Tunnel and Highway 99, a few years earlier. Now it’s 2012. Surrey is a huge city and is growing at the rate of about 1,000 people a month. Schools, hospitals, roads and transit services are inadequate to deal with the sheer volume of people living here or travelling here daily. The new, widened freeway and Port Mann are a breeze to travel, and will offer a great deal of convenience once all the roadwork on the north side of the river is complete. But with a $3 toll rate when the entire project is done, it will exact a steep price from regular travellers. Will more Surrey residents go to the Pattullo, Alex Fraser or George Massey crossings? Will they look for work on this side of the river? Will they shop locally instead of across the river? How will this affect transit services, housing growth and densities? All these questions remain unanswered, but on Monday we may begin to at least get a glimpse of the future. One thing is for sure, transportation patterns and all that is associated with them will change once again. Frank Bucholtz writes Thursdays for the Peace Arch News. He is the editor of the Langley Times.

Task force calls for White Rock to hire full-time arts manager for $86,000

‘Arts city’ at risk without funding: Giffin Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

If White Rock doesn’t get serious about growing the waterfront city as an arts destination, it will never be an arts destination. That was the sentiment at city hall following discussion last week of recommendations – including funding for a full-time arts manager – put forward by the city’s Arts Economic Task Force. “A lot of things have happened in this city, they rise up and then they die,” Coun. Louise Hutchinson said. “Until we, as a city, say we are an arts city… we will never grow as an arts community.” Task force chair Geoff Giffin agreed. If city officials don’t set the tone and make arts and culture a priority, “the rest of the community won’t believe it’s important,” he said. Giffin was at city hall Nov. 26 to present the

Arts Economic Strategy and Implementation Plan. He and 11 others were appointed by the mayor in the spring to come up with it, as a framework to developing the arts as an economic generator for the city. Over four months, the group – comprising nine arts representatives, two city staff and one non-voting councillor – researched ‘best practices’ and consulted stakeholders. The strategy, says a report by the city’s director of leisure services, “identifies the challenges and threats facing local artists and art businesses, as well as the opportunities strengthening the local economy through increased arts activity and events.” “It is believed that implementation of the plan will greatly enhance the local economy,” Eric Stepura writes. Stepura notes that $30,000 in related funding has been proposed for 2013 in the city’s

draft five-year financial plan: $10,000 each for consultant fees to assist with a five-year cultural strategy, to assist community art and cultural groups to organize and host a major annual arts and culture festival, and for organizing and hosting a signature arts and culture event during non-peak times of the year. The task force is recommending another $111,000 be considered, including $86,000 for a manager. Mayor Wayne Baldwin said during discussion of the city’s financial plan that he wasn’t sure “one person devoted to that role is really practical in White Rock.” He encouraged staff to look at combining it with other roles. Coun. Larry Robinson suggested it is something “we put on the wish list for further discussion.” Giffin said the role is vital to making White Rock the “world-class arts and cultural desti-

nation” it has the potential to be. That vision can be achieved within 15 years, he said. Giffin said that while the community has a higher-than-average population of people whose lives are dedicated to the arts, there is a perception that if somebody here is talented, “they must be from somewhere else.” He encouraged the city to “use what we have here,” noting “it doesn’t have to be from somewhere else to be excellent.” Giffin also encouraged the city to stop spending money on consultants to examine the issue, and invest instead in a manager. Council voted unanimously to refer the funding request to staff to be prioritized as part of a leisure services department review. Monday, director of financial services Sandra Kurylo recommended that if the position is created, it should also be tasked with community recreation.

Cultural difference

A ‘table’ for others like Joe Wanda Chow Black Press

Peter Chung is asked how old his son, Joseph, was when he died Sept. 27 and his answer carries the heavy weight of a grieving parent: “32 years, three months and four days.” Joseph, better known as Joe, died after swimming at South Surrey Pool, where he was found in the deep end during a session with the Special Olympics training team. He was autistic and had epilepsy. His family believes he may have suffered a seizure while in the pool. “Unfortunately, I guess he went home early,” said Peter of his son. In their grief, Peter and his wife, Stephanie, continue to take inspiration from their first-born child and plan to honour him with a new coffee shop in Burnaby named Joe’s Table. The café will be in the same building at 5021 Kingsway, on the corner of Kingsway and Marlborough, as CDI College, PCU College of Holistic Medicine and Vancouver Career College, all schools run by the Eminata Group, of which Peter Chung is founder and executive chairman. In addition to serving the staff and students in the building and beyond, the coffee shop will serve another purpose – to provide meaningful employment for people with developmental disabilities. The Chungs saw the need through Joseph’s own experience. He was somewhat independent but couldn’t work alone. “He couldn’t find a job. The only job he could really apply for was janitor’s assistant, working in a stockroom somewhere,” Peter said. “He was very good at organizing things… But it was contrary to his personality. He wanted to meet people, greet people. “We know there are other people

Peter Chung is preparing to open a coffee shop in Burnaby, in honour of his son Joseph, who died while swimming in South Surrey in September. like Joseph. If they try to get a job that’s the sort of thing they’re going to end up with.” Before he died, Joseph was working at the Eminata-owned Amenida Care Home in Newton, where he served as a letter carrier, delivering hugs and conversation to residents along with the mail. That job was a good fit, Peter said, and Joseph knew that the coffee shop idea was already in the works before he died.

A sort of ‘coming out’ Joseph was the eldest of five. He was two or three years old when Peter noticed his son was different. But Peter’s mom reassured that he was also hyper and slow to talk at that age, too. Then, when he was four, a preschool teacher advised them to have Joseph checked by a doctor, and he was diagnosed with autism. “We were devastated. It took us a long time to overcome this thing, it was a very emotional issue.” Developmental disabilities are a difficult subject for the Asian community to talk about and carry a strong stigma, Peter said, adding that as devout Christians,

their faith helped get them through it in their private lives. Then in 2004, Stephanie, a concert pianist, was interviewed by a Korean-language newspaper about an upcoming concert by a famous opera singer she was accompanying. The reporter asked Stephanie about her family and, for the first time, she revealed publicly that Joseph was autistic and had epilepsy. The newspaper ran a full-page story about Joseph, and Stephanie began getting calls from others in the same situation. She set up the Bethesda Parents Group, for parents of kids with autism and Down syndrome. After 30 minutes together, the group’s members are like best friends, Peter said. “They share the pain of being ostracized by the family, they cry together and they laugh together,” he said, wiping away a tear. Since then, participants have become more willing to bring their kids out into the community and are overcoming the sense of shame they had in their culture that often caused them to hide their disabled children at home, Peter said. Learning that so many people

experienced similar challenges motivated Stephanie and Peter to do something to help. One of the most common concerns is over how their disabled children will cope once their parents are gone.

Quality, not sympathy The Chungs hope Joe’s Table will be part of the answer. The Bethesda group will be the first source of disabled staff for the coffee shop, but Peter said they are willing to work with other groups. “If they fit the job description and are able to help, it’s a good way to assimilate them into the mainstream (workforce).” Peter said a non-profit society is being set up to operate the coffee shop. They expect to eventually hire 20 people and of those, about four will have developmental disabilities so they can work with the support of “mainstream staff.” The staff will get extensive training and will be hired for roles that play to their strengths, he stressed. The coffee machines were chosen for being simple to use and are being bought second-hand to be sustainable. The café will serve Belgian waffles which will be pre-

cooked at the commercial kitchen at Amenida Care Home, where the coffee shop staff will be trained. Joe’s Table is expected to open in mid-December and it will be a couple of months before staff with disabilities will be hired, trained and ready to work there. Peter emphasized the quality of the offerings will be on par with other more-established cafés. “We don’t want people to come to our coffee shop for sympathy, we want them to come for quality.” Joe’s Table will feature exhibits of artwork by seniors and disabled artists to highlight their abilities. Peter hopes to eventually expand the Joe’s Table concept to other buildings. He wants to show other businesspeople what is possible, and inspire others to hire people with developmental disabilities. The original intention was to have Joseph work at the coffee shop as a greeter. “He was an icebreaker,” Peter said. “He could approach anybody and say, ‘Hi, my name is Joseph, what is your name?’ He could bring a smile to people. “Now Joseph is not here, but we still want to carry on his dream.”

Video shows person near victims › from page A1 Rossi, who lives in Maple Ridge, is shocked the driver never stopped to help. “I can just see the two poor ladies lying there, bleeding on the pavement, and… the driver didn’t stop,” she said. Police are looking for a white crossover-type vehicle with frontend damage in connection with the collision. (RCMP initially reported it as a dark-coloured car, but changed the description late Tuesday afternoon.) The vehicle was turning left off

of 32 Avenue to head south on 152 Street when it hit the women. Police say it is “unlikely” the driver did not know the women had been hit, and encouraged him or her to come forward now. “No matter what the reason was for not stopping, it is in your best interest to come forward now as opposed to us finding you later,” Cpl. Bert Paquet said. Halpin said it is upsetting that someone could leave the scene. “Accidents happen,” she said. “I think the whole point is that somebody left them there. That’s

what’s disturbing.” Wednesday afternoon, police released video from a traffic camera showing a figure approaching the women about 25 seconds after they were struck (see www. peacearchnews.com) The person appears to lean over or touch the women, and then disappears a second or two later. Police don’t know if the person in the frame was the driver. Officers continue to seek more witnesses to help identify the driver and vehicle. Call 604-5990502.

Eagle rescue rewards people, too › from page A1 Taken to the Delta facility, the otherwise healthy eagles were put on antibiotics for three days to stave off possible infection. They were released at the park Wednesday morning, with the male given a 15-minute lead. Dick said the pair would “pick up where they left off,” in their

daily lives. She couldn’t predict if they would reconnect and start brawling again. She described following the eagles through a rescue and release as extremely satisfying. “There’s no feeling like it in the world,” Dick said. Dick and Day encourage anyone wanting a chance to learn

more about OWL to visit the 3800 72 St. facility between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday for a Christmas at OWL event. Activities include photos being taken with an owl, by donation. Proceeds are to benefit the society’s efforts to rehabilitate and release injured and orphaned birds. For info, call 604-946-3171.

$6-million ‘includes both casinos’ › from page A1 said, adding that this, added to the revenues from Fraser Downs, provides the $6 million total. Gabara said the company has provided the same information, based on BC Lottery Corporation estimates, since the project was announced.

“It ($6 million) is not an inaccurate figure, really,” she said. “It’s just how the figures are broken down.” Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts could not be reached for comment by Peace Arch News deadline Wednesday.

Affordability must be at base of tolls

T

he smile on the face of the premier illuminated the early morning gloom as the new Port Mann bridge was officially opened to eight lanes on Saturday. It’s hard to say how long the honeymoon will last. Especially when commuters and truckers start to see the effect the full cost of tolls will have on their wallets every month. Sensing the backlash that financial hit could spawn, crossing the bridge will be free for the first week, half price until Feb. 28 for drivers who haven’t registered for a special windshield sticker and until next November for those who have. Like a drug pusher trying to establish a marketplace, the government is hoping if they get drivers hooked on the new bridge, they’ll pay whatever it takes to keep moving and won’t blink when they start getting dinged three bucks a crossing. But they may be underestimating the determination of Greater Vancouver motorists to drive for a bargain. Already burdened by the highest cost of living in Canada, extracting another $1,500 a year out of the household accounts of regular users of the Port Mann will be one debit too much. Not to mention the increases in the cost of food and consumer goods that are transported by trucks over the bridge. Three years ago, the tolled Golden Ears Bridge that links Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows to Highway 1 via Langley was opened with similar fanfare. Yet every morning, drivers heading west from those communities line up bumper-to-bumper on the Lougheed Highway to cross the free Pitt River bridge as the six lanes of the Golden Ears sit largely empty. Tolling advocates may decry this behaviour as illogical, but railing at human nature won’t make the sums come out right. Doing the math on tolling means looking at the facts – and the facts are that the public doesn’t have bottomless pockets, particularly in today’s economic climate. While tolls help pay for the infrastructure we so desperately need to keep up with Greater Vancouver’s booming population, those tolls need to be kept affordable for all.

Teamwork Drivers exploit under pressure birds’ trust Editor: We all rely on our local emergency department in an emergency – and its staff are there for us and our loved ones when we need it most. During the past two weeks, we have seen what happens to the emergency department during an emergency. The flood at Surrey Memorial Hospital on Nov. 19 set in motion a cascade of activity at hospitals throughout our region. On behalf of our hospital foundation, and as a member of this community, I would like to thank the medical professionals and healthcare team at Peace Arch Hospital’s emergency department. They have done a superb job to ensure patients continued to receive quality care close to home the past two weeks. Peace Arch Hospital’s ER was built in the 1980s to facilitate 60 patients a day. Today, our ER sees an average of 120 patients a day. And, during the past two weeks, there was an influx, peaking at 194 patients a day. We are fortunate to have such talented staff keeping all the systems running smoothly. Commendations to Fraser Health for executing their disaster plans with total professionalism and efficiency. Thank you to all involved in managing through this emergency as Surrey Memorial worked to re-open its regular ER again Monday morning. We are very fortunate to live in a community with such talent and commitment to health care. Graham Cameron, chair, PAH and Community Health Foundation

Best intentions not worth risk Editor: Re: Border laws ‘criminalize good people,’ Nov. 27. What Robert Cominos should have done was either get in touch with Canada Customs and checked before he tried to cross the border, or leave the gun at the American crossing to be picked up on the way back. Being truthful to the Canadian officers should have gone in his favour and have him turn around and go back to the American Customs. I could see if he tried to hide his loaded Steyr Mannlicher pistol, but he didn’t. What I find ironic is Canadians can’t purchase most gun-related items – ammunition, powder, primers, etc. – because if they are caught, they may be charged under the Patriot Act, which could get you an overnight stay in Bellingham and a court appearance. I, for one, have headed toward the Canadian border only to be stopped just past the D Street overpass and questioned – “do you have any firearms, alcohol, tobacco, etc.,” – and then I continued on my way. The price for 20- and 28-gauge shot shells are a lot cheaper, but it is not worth taking a chance even if you have the best intentions. Jim Kerr, Surrey

Editor: When driving along Marine Drive on West Beach, some of the people are either blind, on their cellphones or just don’t care. I watched as a driver ran right over a young seagull last week. The young birds have not yet learned to get off the road when cars are coming. They are trusting and have no fears of humans or cars. I see these young birds every day and enjoy their company. It made me sick to watch the killing of this baby take place about 10 feet away from me.

I see drivers actually speed up when gulls and crows are on the road. These birds are not garbage on the street, they are members of a caring family and live and stay together just as a human family. Larry Reilly, White Rock

Different rules for different lots Editor: Re: Neighbours ‘up in arms,’ Oct. 25. This is to the city planners and all residents of White Rock. Please look at the bylaws for corner lots and come up with simple workable solutions and be reasonable and

realistic with today’s needs and requirements. Yes, everybody loves green open spaces and small cottages, but those days are gone by, as just 65 years ago there were one billion people and today there are seven billion, so firstly they all need space to live. There are houses that are permitted above and beyond 45 per cent footprint of their lot size. But there are these corner lots which follow no logical arguments of the bylaws, and they may not even be getting a 30 per cent footprint. So an interior neighbour may have a much smaller lot but gets to build a bigger home, yet the same neighbour goes and objects to the corner lot owner with a bigger lot. Kiran Brar, Surrey

Area residents write in predicting what BC Lottery Corporation’s proposed casino would mean for the region.

Differing futures for South Surrey Editor: Surrey has had a hard time overcoming its reputation as the car-theft capital of the Lower Mainland and a place where drugs and other crimes are prevalent. Now, the first thing you will see after the “Welcome to Surrey” sign is a huge casino? I don’t think so! I believe the reason many of us are not more opposed is that we like to gamble from time to time or we look forward to the food and the theatre that will be included. I guarantee that every one of us knows more than one family torn apart by a gambling addiction. We might not realize this, because most people whose lives are destroyed this way are reluctant to admit it. What a horrible example to set for the younger generation. Our children will become the future gamblers needed to sustain this casino and some will lose everything. At the very least they will lose quality time which they could use to be doing something worthwhile. Easy accessibility to a casino is not a good thing. Sharon Lightstone, Surrey n Re: Non-casino wildlife preferred, Nov. 29 letters. As a citizen of this community, I greatly appreciate the lively debate we are having about the proposal for a new entertainment complex in South Surrey. Let me offer my view, and that of many more Surrey residents who are excited about this proposal. A new hotel, theatre, convention centre and casino will provide good jobs for residents, contribute enormously to our local economy, and generate the tax revenue we need to pay for health care, education and vital municipal services. As B.C.’s fastest-growing community, it seems to me this is precisely the kind of development we need. Adil Jessa, Surrey n

Re: White Rock mum on nearby casino plan, Nov. 29. White Rock council wants to make White Rock “a world-class arts and cultural destination” and yet they don’t think having a 25-acre casino complex on our doorstep is their concern? They don’t even have the gumption to represent White Rock when Surrey asks for our feedback on the casino. We elect representatives to be concerned about our community. This casino would negatively impact our businesses, waterfront, social ambiance and values. A report for the provincial government on Socioeconomic Impacts of New Gaming Venues largely bears this out. Council, tell the City of Surrey we don’t want a casino on our doorstep! Susan Lindenberger, White Rock n The proposed casino reflects both a lack of vision and the ever-more-evident neglect of South Surrey. North Surrey has or is going to have: SkyTrain, a new world-class library, a new city hall and an ever-growing SFU satellite campus. South Surrey is getting a casino? What future are we providing for the ever-increasing South Surrey population? Instead of a casino, why not a UBC satellite campus with a world-class aboriginal centre, to name one possibility? There are many innovative projects we should consider. Let’s leave a worthwhile legacy for the citizens of this beautiful area. I have great respect for Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts, but her council needs to recognize its preoccupation with the problems of the Whalley area is leading to a neglected and alienated South Surrey. White Rock council’s recent statement, that the proposed casino is not their concern, is puzzling and probably just another indication that the small contrived boundaries no longer make any sense.

A Surrey high school teacher who took a photo of a 14-yearold student with a lollipop in her mouth is among the latest educators to be disciplined by the B.C. Teacher Regulation Branch. Timothy Trylinski admitted to professional misconduct in September and was suspended for five days in connection with the incident, which took place in the spring of 2011. According to a Consent Resolution Agreement posted on the regulation branch’s website last

week, Trylinski was teaching a Grade 9 social studies class where a girl had a large, colourful lollipop. During class, he suggested someone should take a picture of her, because it would be “cute.” After class, he photographed the girl outside the classroom with his phone camera, showing the student, wearing a “low-cut and somewhat revealing” top, with the lollipop in her mouth, according to a discipline summary. At the end of the school year, Trylinski asked the student to

Surrey Memorial ER opens Fine Dining By the Sea Jeff Nagel Black Press

Surrey Memorial Hospital’s emergency department re-opened Monday morning, two weeks after a flood from a ruptured water main forced it to close. Ambulances had been sending patients to other nearby hospitals, increasing congestion in their ERs. Patients coming to SMH on their own had been redirected to an offsite temporary ER at the nearby Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre, but it closed Monday and patients are now being

transferred back to SMH. Also re-opened Monday was the medical imaging department at the hospital, with both CT scans and two X-ray suites now operating. The hospital’s MRI machine is

still being assessed for possible repairs and it’s not yet known how soon it can be used again. Patients needing MRI scans will continue to go to the Jim Pattison outpatient centre. More than 100 surgeries scheduled for the first two days after the flood were postponed and how fast they’re rescheduled and performed is dependent on the urgency of the case. Repairing flood damage and related costs are estimated to be up to $3 million, although that amount doesn’t include the potential loss of the MRI machine.

This $100 million investment in our local economy will create 1,200 jobs during construction and another 500 full-time jobs once operational. It will generate new revenues for all levels of government to support public services. It will help bring more than $80 million in entertainment dollars back to our community that is currently being spent elsewhere, including the US. As a dynamic new entertainment destination, the complex will be a valuable addition to our local tourism industry. It features 27,000 square-feet of much-needed new conference space, with seating for events and meetings of up to 1,500 people and dinners of up to 1,000 people. A new 200-room four-star hotel is also featured. And a new 800-seat show theatre will attract big-name entertainers. THIS PROJECT IS A BIG BOOST FOR LOCAL BUSINESSES.

enviro notes

assign arbitrary meanings to our words; we should use accepted terminology. When speakers assert that a proposed action will upset the ‘ecology’ of an area when they mean the ‘environment’, or that some action will “decimate the environment” when decimate literally means ‘remove one-tenth,’ one can be sure that either they are careless with vocabulary or are not well versed in the subject. In either case, their message should be discounted. ‘Organic’ is another word which has passed into the common vocabulary incorrectly. All plant growth is organic so there can be no inorganic plants. It’s too much of a mouthful to say some vegetables or fruits that they have been grown without biocides or artificial chemicals, and so they are labelled and sold as “organically grown.” This tag has become uncritically accepted for want of a more accurate term. Since ‘the holly and the ivy’ appear amongst the very many ideas associated with Christmas, perhaps it’s permissible in environmental writing to add ‘Christmas’ to the list of words whose true meaning is concealed under layer alternatives? Let’s all watch out for imitators of Humpty Dumpty, and say what we mean and mean what we say. Dr. Roy Strang writes monthly on the environment for the Peace Arch News. rmstrang@shaw.ca

WittyCookie founder named Entrepreneur of the Year

Student receives biz award Simon Fraser University student Michael Cheng, founder of WittyCookie, has won SFU’s 2012 Entrepreneur of the Year (SEY) award, two weeks after netting the Surrey Board of Trade’s student award of the same title. Cheng received the honour during the student entrepreneurial group Enactus SFU’s annual SEY awards competition in Vancouver. He was also selected to receive the People’s Choice award. He was given Surrey’s student entrepreneur of the year award

during its recent Business Excellence Awards banquet and earlier this year, received one of the city’s Top 25 Under 25 awards. Cheng, 23, created WittyCookie, a Vancouver web design company, with a view to making web services more affordable and streamlined for small businesses. “We’ve worked to build amazing websites for hundreds of small business owners who would never have otherwise been able to afford a great site,” says Cheng. While web designers tradition-

ally charge one large sum, often with a large deposit, WittyCookie provides low, micro-monthly payment options, explains Cheng, who, after graduating plans to introduce WittyCookie to international markets. Cheng is a student in SFU’s School of Interactive Arts and Technology (SIAT) and a client of SFU’s  Venture Connection. Another of its clients, CKM Sports, founded by former inline hockey goalie Ciff Mander, took second place.

Cloverdale’s Sharon Vrecko’s winter display can be toured by appointment

Display far more than just decking the halls Jennifer Lang Black Press

When it comes to getting into the Christmas spirit, Santa’s got nothing on Sharon Vrecko. For more than 40 years, the decorating dynamo has turned her Cloverdale home into a Christmas wonderland, an annual tradition she shows no sign of abandoning any time soon. “I just love Christmas,” smiles Vrecko, wearing Christmas tree earrings, a Santa teddy bear sweater, and dark slacks patterned with wreaths, candy canes and presents. A visit to her home last week offered a tantalizing preview. “Usually, my target date is Dec. 1,” says Vrecko, who explains it all began in 1967 – the first year she was married. She had $80 to spend on decorations, and went to the Army and Navy department store. It was “more than enough to totally decorate our one-bedroom apartment,” she recalls. These days, she’s got a lot more floor (and wall) space to work with. If she sees a decoration or collectible she likes, she buys it, but keeps strictly focused. “I don’t just ‘buy’ like I used to. I think.” Everything – from the miniature Santas representing countries (and family members) around the globe to tiny, snow-covered Christmas towns – is carefully arranged, contained to specific sections of rooms

B.C. backs down temporarily on flu edict

Vaccine rules delayed Jeff Nagel Black Press

The province has granted a one-year reprieve from its directive that health workers wear a mask this flu season if they refuse to be vaccinated. Those who don’t comply won’t be disciplined, deputy health minister Graham Whitmarsh said in a Nov. 30 letter to health authorities. Enforcement that was to begin Dec. 1 is on hold while the ministry carries out more consultation with unions and other affected staff to help determine how best to fully implement the flu-control policy, he said. Provincial Health Officer Dr. Perry Kendall gave the needle-or-mask order this summer, citing an inadequate flu immunization rate of less than 50 per cent among B.C. health care workers despite free shots and much encouragement. But unions denounced the policy as a privacy violation, saying the threat of discipline to compel unvaccinated workers to wear masks would have forced them to disclose their decision not to get a flu shot. Those who did get vaccinated were expected to wear badges or pins to assure patients they were immunized.

Health Sciences Association of B.C. president Reid Johnson said the union encourages its members to be vaccinated but defends their right to choose. “If they choose not to be vaccinated for any number of factors – including experiences with bad side effects to vaccines and fundamental, philosophical, or religious objections to vaccination – that is their right,” he said. Rather than enforcing a season-long order to mask up, he said, that step can be taken during an actual flu outbreak, along with other long-standing options such as relocating staff or having them stay home. Despite the controversy, more health workers did roll up their sleeves for the needle this fall. According to Kendall’s office, more than 60 per cent of full-time health workers are now vaccinated. And Fraser Health reported an even higher rate of more than 70 per cent of full-time staff vaccinated as of last Thursday, a number that’s expected to climb further. A ministry spokesperson called the decision not to enforce in the transitional year a “balanced and measured approach.”

White Rock Players Club’s latest production based on original story from 1883

Panto creaters take pointers from the past Alex Browne

T

Arts Reporter

he strength of the White Rock Players Club’s annual Christmas pantomime has always been the club’s irreverent – and distinctly local – slant on an old English stage tradition. Starting with the 1954 Babes In The Woods, created by Players Club pioneers Franklin and Charlotte Johnson, the White Rock pantomime quickly became the talk of the Lower Mainland, establishing its own set of traditions along the way, many of which survive in current pantos. Key to retaining the distinctive White Rock panache has been the writing of original scripts – and the 2012 pantomime, Pinocchio, is in the grand tradition: a unique adaptation of the classic Carlo Collodi tale by panto veteran and club president Dave Baron. The colourful show, directed by Susanne de Pencier, with musical direction by Kerry O’ Donovan, runs until Dec. 29 at the Coast Capital Playhouse, 1532 Johnston Rd. The process of creating a brand new pantomime – the club’s 58th – started well over a year ago, Baron said. “I knew I was going to write a new pantomime, but the big question was what was it going to be?” he recalled. “We’d used a lot of the panto staples – Snow White,

But I was inspired by an interesting audience comment after last year’s show (Mother Goose). Someone said there was no clear sense of good and evil, that there just wasn’t a believable villain. “I thought that was true – we’ve always done more comic villains.” The quest for true villainy

– and less-travelled panto territory – eventually led Baron to Pinocchio, he said. “I remembered the Disney version, obviously, and I thought there were a couple of villains in that that could be useful. But in terms of our format, we need one really nasty villain.” A search back through the archives revealed that Franklin and Charlotte

Johnson had also produced a Pinocchio in the 1960s – but Baron quickly realized it was a product of its times that would not translate well for modern audiences. “It was quite appalling how times have changed, in terms of what kind of humour they could get away with then,” he said. “I also didn’t like the villain at all.” Baron went back and read

the original 1883 Collodi story – only to find there was way too much material for a direct adaptation to work. “I didn’t realize it was such a saga,” he said. But there was a darkness in the tale (Collodi reputedly didn’t like children very much, and used the obstinate and mouthy Pinocchio as a vehicle for

lecturing them on their bad behaviour) that did, ultimately, stick with him. From the pages of the original, Baron drew the inspiration for making a puppet master the principal villain, played in the show by Players Club veteran Martin Perrin. “I call him Signor Scagliare, which means Mr. Fire-eater,” Baron said. “He’s a scammer, an evil showman.” Scagliare has used the secret of a hapless, now deceased magician (“he’d have died a lot easier if he’d given me the secret sooner,” he sneers) to create lifelike puppets out of real people. But fearing official wrath, he seeks to add Pinocchio (Michelle Gaetz) – a real wooden puppet come to life – to his collection, to divert suspicion from his other ‘puppets.’ Scagliare’s minions, Fox (Jennifer Tiles) and Cat (Elyse Raible,) are also drawn from the original story, Baron notes. But he admits he has taken great liberties with the original to cast events and characters in traditional panto mold – and offer a nod and wink to audience expectations. Instead of the Jiminy Cricket of the Disney version, for instance, this Pinocchio offers twins – ‘Gemini Crickets’ 1 and 2 – played by Reilly Olexson and Kate Naylor. And readers will scan

Baron said he also takes full responsibility for Admiral Horatio Suckblower – a role tailored for the unique comedic instincts of panto veteran Ray Van Ieperen. He’s a nautical chap who turns out to be the bilge cleaner of a seriously off-course BC Ferry, as well as supplying a handy romantic interest for Miss Ann – just in time for perennial panto number The Year We Fell In Love.

John Lee Sanders holiday show returns

Peninsula to get dose of gospel and blues Alex Browne Arts Reporter

A return of of John Lee Sanders Gospel and Blues Christmas Show was a done deal – virtually while the rafters of White Rock’s First United Church were still ringing from last year’s show. So says Wendy Bollard, artistic director of Peninsula Productions, who will bring back the veteran pianist and saxophone player – and a powerhouse band featuring phenomenal lead vocalist Sibel Thrasher – Sunday, Dec. 16 at 7 p.m. at the church. “Last year’s show was such a success we asked John that night to come back this year,” Bollard said. If Sanders doesn’t know how to put together a feel-good evening of high energy gospel, rocking blues and classic Christmas songs, no one does. Born in Monroe, La. he grew up surrounded by blues and roots music, from a childhood in Memphis, Tenn. (his uncle and aunt lived only a few doors down from Elvis Presley) through formative years spent in Birmingham, Ala. In some 30 years in the San Francisco Bay area, he built a matchless reputation as a west coast session player, working live and in the studio with such greats as Stevie Wonder, Willie Nelson, Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, Huey Lewis, Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry. He’s travelled to major blues festivals

across North America and Europe and became a fixture on the Canadian blues scene when he became musical director for the late Long John Baldry in the 1980s. It would be understandable for such a musician to become jaded, but the spare, soft-spoken Sanders’ eyes lit up when discussing the show ahead – and particularly the thrill of working with musicians of the calibre of Thrasher. “She was recently named Vancouver entertainer of the year,” he noted. › see page A30

Show on Dec. 16 › from page A29 He’s also looking forward to working with fiddler and accordionist Gary Comeau again, he said. “I come from Louisiana and that Acadian, cajun fiddle is a real part of the music down there – and he’s the real deal.” The same killer rhythm section (Mike Kalanj on Hammond B3, Dennis Marcenko on bass, Tim Porter on guitar and Chris Nordquist on drums) has been with him since 2005, he added, with a resultant telepathy that makes the sound that much tighter. “And the Hammond organ really adds to the black gospel feel,” he said. “That’s such a huge part of my memories of Christmas.” Sanders knows whereof he speaks, having learned firsthand of the Great Migration that took some 10 million African Americans from the south to northern and western industrial areas during the last century. “I played for four years as the Hammond

organist in a black church in Oakland, California,” he recalled. “That was one of the coolest gigs in my life. Most of the families had come from Northern Louisiana, where I come from. In the Great Migration, most of the people from Northern Louisiana and Tennessee went to Oakland.” The social upheavals had an interesting effect on the way music developed in different areas of the U.S., he noted. But a concert like the upcoming Christmas show demonstrates how geographic separation and stylistic demarcations don’t really apply, Sanders agreed. “In this kind of music, everything’s interchangeable,” he said. “Everybody has the same DNA – the chords are all the same, and the scales.” Tickets ($25 advance, $30 at the door) are available at Tapestry Music (1335 Johnston Rd.) or can be reserved for pickup at the church through https://tickets. surrey.ca

Pair win medals with Team BC

Sea Wolves excel in water A pair of Pacific Sea Wolves Swim Club members scored excellent results at the Youth Cup meet in Toronto last weekend. Esmee Smit-Anseeuw and Edwin Zhao both took part in the event as members of Team BC. Smit-Anseeuw, 14, won gold in the 200-m butterfly and was third in the 100-m butterfly, 200-m breaststroke and 200-m individual medley. She also won two more gold medals as part of B.C. relay teams, in the 4x100 freestyle and 4x100 IM. Zhao, meanwhile, brought home a silver medal in the 1,500-m freestyle race, and golds in two relays – the 4x100 IM and the 4x200 freestyle. Other Sea Wolves found themselves on the podium at Richmond’s FastSwim meet last weekend, too. Among the medal

winners was Lydia Doyon, who won six golds and one bronze; Bailey Mothe, who swam to four golds and four silvers; Trista Tetrault, who won four gold medals and four silver; Darren Yuan, winner of four gold and three silver medals; and Isabelle Lei, who won three gold and two silver medals. Rounding out PSW’s multiple-medal winners was Alex Blaskovich, with two gold and five silver; and Olivyya Chow, who won two gold, one silver and one bronze. Other medallists included James Bogart, Regina Chan, Kanata Kitagawa, Isabella Koch, Kevin McDonough, Quinton Richert, Vanessa Rivas, Marija Robinson and Jill Xu, while a number of other Sea Wolves finished in the Top 8 in their respective events. - Nick Greenizan

Hospital to rebuild for sake of its patients

A campaign for our children

SECTION

Family in need grateful for help Diane Strandberg

Kids fighting cancer will be among the prime beneficiaries of plans to rebuild BC Children’s Hospital starting in 2014. The $683-million project will roughly double the amount of space in the hospital and it will reconfigure the pediatric oncology department, now spread out over three floors, onto one much more efficient level. “It will provide much greater continuity of care,” said Stephen Forgacs, spokesman for BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. The foundation is supporting the new hospital –  to open in 2018 – with a $200-million fundraising campaign, and Forgacs said the new design is centred around the needs of families. “We’re building exclusively private rooms in the new hospital,” Forgacs said. “There will be no more open ward.” Each room will have its own bathroom, fold-out bed and wardrobe to accommodate parents who want to stay overnight with their sick, frightened child. Also planned are kitchen facilities for families, office space and Wi-Fi access everywhere. “In any hospital room, you’ll be able to get online, which is great for parents who are away from work,” Forgacs said, adding it also helps kids beat boredom with video games and connect online with friends. Besides improving privacy and infection control, there are advantages to letting parents stay in a private room. They can comfort their child and they become so versed in treatment protocols, they’re essentially experts who help backup staff. Medical technology has evolved by leaps and bounds since BC Children’s Hospital opened in 1982, when personal computers were a novelty. Diagnostic scanning is light years ahead and minimally inva-

The new hospital will be much better designed with all technology needs in mind. Demand has also soared over the years and not just due to B.C.’s growing population. Kids whose conditions meant a death sentence in the 1980s are surviving in much greater numbers –  the pediatric cancer survival rate is

up to 80 per cent from 20 then. And others who would have died young from chronic conditions like cystic fibrosis now routinely live into their 40s. It means a hospital that was at capacity the day it opened 30 years ago is bursting at the seams. Forgacs said myriad improvements will make the new hospital more welcoming and comforting to families enduring the worst and most terrifying

moments of their lives. It’s critical to meet those emotional needs – not just the medical ones. “The stress families feel is intense,” he said, adding hospital staff feel it too. “Not only are you dealing with a child who is ill, you are dealing with parents of that child who would literally give their lives if they could to save the child.” › see page B2

“How did this happen?” The question on Andrea Howarth’s blog cuts like a knife. One day the Lower Mainland mom and her husband, Nick, are planning a trip to Disneyland with their two children — Clara, now six, and Brennan, who just turned four — and a few months later, they are plunged into a nightmare. As she doles out cupcakes for a treat to her little ones in her comfortable Port Coquitlam condo, it’s hard to believe the story Howarth is about to tell. Yet, according to statistics, it’s a sadly common tale for hundreds of B.C. families. Last February, Clara, was struck down by a serious fever that turned out to be Strep A. Later, as the little girl’s body fought the illness, her blood work revealed an even stronger adversary: lymphoblastic leukemia. “It was very scary,” Howarth recalls. Flipping through a binder that logs Clara’s Clara Howarth test results, prescriptions and hospital stays, she describes how Clara came home from her Sparks meeting with a headache. That turned into flu-like symptoms and a fever of 40 C. “She couldn’t hold anything down.” With a mother’s instinct, Howarth and husband Nick decided to make the trek to BC Children’s Hospital on Oak Street in Vancouver for some expert advice. They made the right decision. “We bypassed the lineup and were admitted into emergency right away.” In the hospital’s intensive care unit, Clara was given round-the-clock care by nurses and doctors who specialize in dealing with children and who patiently answered the Howarths’ litany of questions. Clara’s throat became so swollen with inflammation, she was hard to recognize. A tube had to be placed into her throat so she could take in fluids. Monitored day and night, Clara was kept under the watchful eyes of staff while the Howarths spelled each other off, staying next to their daughter in a small cot, or returning home to Brennan, who was being looked after by family. › see page B4

gacs said, is the support from parents whose kids have been through the hospital but who perhaps can afford only to volunteer or simply share their stories. “They look for ways to express their gratitude,” Forgacs said. “For many of them I think it’s almost therapeutic to remain involved with the hospital.” Forgacs said the foundation is now hoping more donors will step forward to raise the remaining $45 million. “We’re appealing to British Columbians in every income bracket to help us complete the campaign.”

› from page B1 Forgacs said the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation has raised $155 million over the past four years toward its $200-million target through tremendous grassroots support as well as support from major donors. High-profile donations have come from Vancouver Canucks Daniel and Henrik Sedin and singer Michael Bublé. The biggest contributions have been $25 million from Teck Resources and $20 million from the Overwaitea Food Group. Just as honourable, For-

Discounts may woo drivers Jeff Nagel Black Press

The first big test of whether drivers open their wallets and embrace the new Port Mann Bridge will come next Monday. Dec. 10 is the first business day with regular weekday volumes after the start of tolling this weekend when most commuters must decide if they will pay $1.50 to cross. Even then, many will effectively have free use of the bridge for a while. Those who signed up with the TReO electronic tolling system by last week will get a credit for 20 free crossings and won’t be out of pocket until those are burned off or the credits expire on May 31. March 1 is another key date, when drivers who fail to register lose their 50 per cent discount and must pay the full $3 toll for regular cars to cross. That discount continues for registered users until December 2013. The strategy of offering staged discounts to ease motorists into paying for a previously free crossing is a smart one, said SFU marketing professor Lindsey Meredith. “I think they learned from the disaster over at the Golden Ears Bridge,” he said. “It’s no accident you see it phased in with a lot of inducement for people to adapt earlier than later.”

Drivers will be tolled for the new Port Mann this weekend.

TransLink’s Golden Ears Bridge attracted fewer drivers than expected, he said, because full tolls were abruptly charged with no discounts after a free-use period ended. In contrast, the Port Mann will offer options the Golden Ears still doesn’t, including a permanent 25 per cent discount for registered HOV lane users at peak times and an unlimited monthly pass option for frequent users. So far, the plan appears to be working. More than 225,000 drivers have already registered on TReO and the province is well on its way to meeting its target of 300,000 to 400,000 registrants, or more than 80 per cent of regular bridge users.

That doesn’t mean that all those registered users will take the new Port Mann. And toll opponents are organizing on social media like Facebook and Twitter to urge drivers to boycott the bridge. But Meredith said the large number of early signups gives the bridge an important chance to impress users with its value. And he said if there’s widespread TReO adoption, opposition campaigns may quickly fizzle. “The people who are strongly averse to it will be the holdouts,” Meredith said. “But if you get critical mass and you get enough people to roll over and go with it, that will help convert the holdouts later.” The TReO electronic tolling system will be able to more efficiently detect cars using windshield decals and bill their credit cards or bank accounts. Otherwise, licence plate cameras detect unregistered vehicles and – if the toll isn’t paid within seven days – an invoice will go out in the mail, with a $2.30 processing fee, which is being waived for the first three months. Meredith cautioned many consumers have high debt levels and are spending nearly all their paycheques, meaning they can’t easily afford tolls that may cost them $1,800 a year by 2014.

We didn’t realize so many families were living there: mother › from page B1 It took days for the eventual, shocking diagnosis, but by then, anxiety and exhaustion had begun to take its toll. The couple fell asleep together in the tiny cot pushed up against Clara’s bed. A curtain divider hung in her face but discomfort was a small price to pay to be near their little girl, who was fighting for her life. The diagnosis, when it came about eight days after Clara was admitted, was hard to take. With leukemia confirmed through bone-marrow testing, the family exchanged one cramped room in ICU to another in the oncology ward and Clara began chemotherapy treatments. She started to get better and the

Howarths began to look around and see other families going through the same ordeal. One day, they brought a cooler of food because chemotherapy treatments affect children’s sense of taste and they wanted to bring her special treats. They looked into the ward fridge; there was no room. “We didn’t realize so many families were living there.” In fact, childhood cancer is surprisingly common, with approximately 850 Canadian children expected to develop cancer this year – 100 of them newly diagnosed in B.C. who will end up at BC Children’s. After weeks of treatment, Clara returned home in the spring and, although extremely weak and with

the trade-mark hair loss, finished kindergarten and is now in Grade 1. Her cancer is in remission, although she still has to receive treatments that are extremely hard on her body. The long-planned trip to Disneyland that would have taken place this fall was cancelled, but Howarth is thankful her daughter is doing so well. In fact, she has become a BC Children’s Hospital booster and is supportive of a campaign to replace the aging facilities with a new hospital that will be much more comfortable for families and more efficient for staff. Recently, she toured a

mock-up of the new design and can’t say enough about it. “There are families who have to live there and they need this.” Plans call for larger rooms, the consolidation of oncology services on one floor, instead of three, as they are now, dedicated lounge areas and larger shared facilities, including a kitchen. The improvements will be a benefit, she agrees, but for now, being home with her children every day and seeing Clara’s health improve is all Howarth really needs. That trip to Disneyland can wait.

GVHBA welcomes new President and CEO Bob de Wit By Kerry Vital

The Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association is proud to introduce its new President and CEO, Bob de Wit. Replacing long-time president Peter Simpson, de Wit is ready to take on the challenge. “I’m committed to listening to our members, home owners and government in seeking new ideas for creative and collaborative

solutions for making home ownership more affordable,” he says. De Wit already has a few plans now that he’s taken over the reins. “Our focus at GVHBA going forward will be on expanding local government relations activity and encouraging greater intramembership trade,” he says. Prior to starting at the GVHBA, de Wit was the CEO of an investment fund “that has invested in, among other things, technologies for improving energyefficiency in the built environment, which lead to my interest in the residential home building and renovation industry,” he says. De Wit has lived in the Lower Mainland since 1986, when he attended Simon Fraser University for his business degree. He now lives with his wife and daughter in South Surrey.
