Hit-and-run driver prepares for atonement after killing woman, lawyer says

‘I’d trade places with her in a second’ Sheila Reynolds Black Press

A woman who was drunk at the wheel of the van that sped through a red light and crashed into Surrey’s Kassandra Kaulius last year apologized in court Tuesday morning, saying words couldn’t express how sorry she was for causing the 22-year-old’s death. “If I could take it back, I would trade places with her in a second,” said Natasha Warren, 35, facing the judge in Surrey Provincial Court.

“Please don’t drink and drive,” she said, vowing to speak to youth of her experience. “It hurts so many people.” Tuesday was the second day of Warren’s sentencing hearing. In July, she pleaded guilty to dangerous driving causing death, impaired driving causing death and failure to stop at an accident causing bodily harm. The Crown is seeking a 3½-year federal jail term, plus a five-year driving prohibition after her sentence concludes. The defence wants a jail

sentence of just over two years (25 months), plus a five-year driving ban. Warren’s lawyer, Mark Cacchioni, said his client is a “decent young woman” who suffers immense grief daily living with the knowledge she’s responsible for Kaulius’ death. He said Warren always wanted to plead guilty, but he advised her not to do so until he reviewed the Crown’s case. Then she not only pleaded guilty, but fully co-operated with police, providing the hockey jersey she was wear-

ing the night of the crash and a DNA sample, he said. “Actions speak louder than words,” said Cacchioni. “She’s preparing herself for atonement…” Dale Trimble, a counsellor who saw Warren seven times this year, said she immediately said she wanted to take responsibility for the crash and showed a willingness to go to prison – something he said he rarely sees when counselling accused criminals. › see page 4

Students toast alcohol safety

‘Not if but when’ for cameras

Message on your bottles Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Young White Rock students have a thing or two to say about drinking and driving this year, and their messages are in – er… on – the bag. About 300 bags, actually. “One of them said, ‘Rudolph will know you did it’,” said Const. Janelle Shoihet, of notes carefully added to brown paper bags that will be distributed at the Sandpiper Liquor Store. The effort was part of BC Liquor Stores’ bagdecorating program, in which school-aged children decorate bags that are then used to package liquor-store purchases. Shoihet took the challenge – which she dubbed Project Paper Bag – to students at White Rock and Peace Arch elementaries. “I’m so pleased with the outcome, because the bags look fantastic and it’s such a simple thing.” Some of the children were so proud of their bags, they wanted to ❝…my good friend keep them to give as Const. Shoihet will gifts to their parents. Teacher Jessica be waiting for you.❞ Beggs is confident her Grade 4/5 students at White Rock Elementary understood the goal; to get people who are buying alcohol to think about potential consequences of not being responsible with it. “They were really proud of that, that the message would get there,” Beggs said. Other messages included, “We are not cats, we only live once” and “Seriously dude, don’t drink and drive.” Shoihet’s personal favourite brought her into the picture: “Don’t drink and drive or my good friend Const. Shoihet will be waiting for you.” “I think they’re getting the message behind it,” she said. “A lot of effort went into these.”

White Rock may not be able to justify surveillance cameras along the waterfront yet, but Al Campbell is confident that time will come. “It’s not a case of if, it’s when,” the city councillor said Monday, in discussing a staff report advising against proceeding with such a system. “I think at some point or the other… it’s got to be in the best interests of the city.” Campbell, who last June first suggested looking into such a system, said his motion was meant to help the two bylaw officers charged with monitoring the area. For the price of hiring one or two more, “a lot of cameras” could be put in place, he told Peace Arch News Wednesday. Still, Campbell said he is satisfied with the report’s findings. “It was all about qualification,” he said. “At some point… I really believe it will be there.” Last summer, only Coun. Helen Fathers opposed investigating the use of closed-circuit cameras. City manager Dan Bottrill suggested Monday that cameras be considered for the works yard, to combat illegal dumping.

Embrace the season by giving

With our Thanks for the Gift of your Friendship

Taste of Christmases past C ...and frankly

then went into a cooler. He emerged with a scrawny little turkey. But it was still the real thing. Al proudly took it home and, he told me, “Never did any turkey I’ve eaten taste as good as that one.” After his family moved to Surrey, they were able to grow a good portion of their food, and cash for food became less of an issue. There was always lots of fruit, and most people raised their own animals for meat, eggs and milk. Most people grew big gardens in the summer months, and it was often quite easy to catch fish in the rivers. Cash continued to be a problem for many Surrey families throughout the 1930s. Work was scarce, and many were on relief, the municipal assistance for families with no income. Many single men lived in relief camps, including one in South Surrey, and were paid a small sum for manual labour. That’s how the King George Highway project was started. There was no Employment Insurance, no pensions for retired people and no health insurance. Surrey’s lone doctor, F.D. Sinclair, treated many patients without any hope of payment. But at the same time, people were very grateful for small things – like scrawny turkeys. It’s a good thing to think about as we are embrace the season of giving.

‘Large number’ of stolen items uncovered when police called to help man

Series of bad decisions ends in dog bite Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Police who were called Sunday to look into concerns about the well-being of an individual in South Surrey still don’t know if the subject of the call is OK. But the investigation was fruitful nonetheless, after “a series of bad decisions” ended with the arrest of a man wanted on an outstanding warrant in White Rock and the recovery of numerous items – including a car stolen out of Delta. Police surrounded a home in the 17400block of 16 Avenue just before noon Dec. 16. Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said a 24-year-old South Surrey resident suffered

Paquet said no one in the residence at the time claimed either the vehicle or the items inside it, and officers are currently working to connect the items to their rightful owners. As well, forensic investigators are examining the recovered items for fingerprints that could lead police to other suspects. Meanwhile, police continue to search for the man who was the focus of the well-being call. “We haven’t been able to confirm if the subject we were concerned for is OK or not,” Paquet said, describing the subject as a Surrey resident who is well-known to police. “We’re still investigating and trying to locate him at this point.”

More demands cited by mayor

White Rock rethinks lower tax bump Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Barring anything unforeseen, White Rock taxpayers will see their property taxes go up by 3.38 per cent next year. The boost is higher than two figures – 2.8 and three per cent – that have been recommended by staff in recent weeks, but necessary, officials say. “I wanted to keep it right down,” Mayor Wayne Baldwin said Wednesday. “Two-pointeight I was really happy with, but on the other hand, when you have more demands, you have to pay attention to them.” Council Monday unanimously supported giving the 2013-’17 financial plan bylaw first, second and third reading. A final vote is expected on Jan. 14. If it goes through, the increase means the average single-family homeowner will see their property taxes jump by $93 (from the $77 that 2.8 per cent would have brought); the increase to strata properties will be $36 (up from $30).

Gateway Casinos and Entertainment is disputing the City of Surrey’s planning and development report figures on the company’s proposed South Surrey Entertainment Complex. In an email to Peace Arch News, Gateway community liaison Tanya Gabara said the company believes maps summarizing support and opposition for the project in the report are inaccurate “as they only represent a small subset of the feedback which skewed heavily in favour of opponents of the project.” Of concern, she said, is that none of the feedback about the project collected from the community by Gateway – summarized elsewhere in the report – was included in the mapping. “We understand the city staff were only able to map responses which provided full civic addresses due to a software limitation,” she said. According to city figures, 5,964 pieces of correspondence to the city that excluded information collected by Gateway showed 3,225 (of which 3,220 provided Surrey civic addresses) opposed to the project, while 1,235 city residents, of which only 635 provided civic addresses, supported the project. Gabara said, however, that the company’s tabulation of results summarized in the report show support and opposition among Surrey residents to be “close to even” with 3,048 in support and 3,433 in opposition. On Thursday, a Delta company, Tornado Building Maintenance Corporation, emailed reporters with a news release listing 38 businesses that project manager Ana Del Pio said support the Gateway proposal. “Today’s announcement comes (10 days) after a similar endorsement by the Surrey Board of Trade, the South Surrey and White Rock, and Cloverdale Chambers of Commerce,” the news release notes.

Victim’s family struggles with loss they read an apology letter from Warren, and it was neither sincere or heartfelt. Victor Kaulius wiped away tears as he described living with the “ultimate horror” after hearing of his daughter’s death. He said he can hardly console his family because of his pain. Mother Markita Kaulius also attempted to express her extreme grief, at one point standing and addressing Warren directly. “You didn’t offer my daughter any assistance,” she sobbed. “You left my daughter to die in the street… Miss Warren, you took away her hopes and dreams for the future.” At one point, she held up a tattered, nylon jacket that medical workers had cut off her daughter. “That’s all I have left to hang on to,” Kaulius’s mother said. Outside court Tuesday, she said time will tell if Warren uses her experience for good. The Kauliuses objected to Warren’s mother comparing her to her victim, and was disappointed Warren didn’t take the opportunity to face them as she issued her apology in court. They are also discouraged Warren gets to spend Christmas with her family, when they’ll never have another with their daughter. “The angel on top of our tree has a whole new meaning,” Markita Kaulius said.

Police took two people into custody at gunpoint Monday afternoon in the 1700-block of Southmere Crescent in South Surrey, after a passerby reported a suspicious vehicle in the area.

Report of suspicious vehicle leads to arrests

Pair arrested at gunpoint Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A passerby’s report of a suspicious vehicle in South Surrey led police to take two people into custody at gunpoint Monday afternoon. “They weren’t listening to police direction,” Const. Kevin Lewis explained of the step. A man and woman were handcuffed around 3:15 p.m. Dec.

17, in the 1700-block of Southmere Crescent. A nearby resident who heard the commotion reported seeing two people on the ground and an officer with his gun drawn. Lewis said the scene unfolded after police located a grey Honda Accord matching the suspicious vehicle’s description. The vehicle was initially believed stolen but was quickly determined to have

stolen plates, he said. The vehicle’s occupants were ordered to the ground at gunpoint after they failed to follow initial commands and were walking away with their hands in their pockets, Lewis said. The woman was released at the scene. The man, believed to be in his early to mid-20s, was expected to remain in custody at least overnight.

No easy answers as tragedy unfolds

T

here are events so vivid and horrifying they give us all pause to reflect and wonder what we could do to avert such tragedy in the future. One such occurred in Newtown, Conn. last week, where a shooting rampage left 27 people, including 20 elementary school students – and the alleged shooter – dead. In the aftermath, an anguished chorus of voices erupted over social media, on radio and television, expressing everything from understandable anger and outrage to debates over whether gun control or more attention to mental health should be the priority. Politicians, predictably, have been quick to add platitudes to the tumult. Practical leadership is likely to be more challenging. There are no easy answers to why this tragedy occurred, and, consequently, no quick fixes for the issues it raises. Simplistic solutions may work in the fantasy world of the movies, but they seldom stand the test in real life. We can only shake our heads at the more hysterical responses to the events at Sandy Hook Elementary – including the actions of an 11-year-old Utah boy who days later brought a gun to his school, apparently without the knowledge of his parents, because he feared for his safety. Perhaps the most important thing is that the public – in the U.S., in Canada, and around the world – has been faced with incontrovertible evidence that there is a problem. The only positive we can take away from the horrific incident is that it is one of those events that generate enough emotion to provide a tipping point for public opinion. All the while we shrug at such violent incidents, all the while we turn away, resigned to the notion that this is the way of the modern world and there is nothing that can be done about it, we become a party to the bloodshed. Anyone with an ounce of feeling who looks at the class and family pictures of the innocent victims of the latest tragedy must say – at some point – that this is wrong; enough is enough. The slaughter at Sandy Hook has made many prepared to re-examine their own beliefs; to put issues such as gun control and mental health on the table, instead of sweeping them aside with the conditioned reflex of entrenched attitudes. For the tragedy itself we can only have sorrow. But for the fact that there are still millions in this world with compassion, decency and humanity, who abhor violence and who want to work towards a better world, we must be thankful.

Are White Rock and Surrey streets pedestrian-friendly?

yes 38% no 62% 118 responding It extends to Conservative party MPs who voted in favour of this legislation – and only five Conservatives voted alongside opposition parties to oppose it. These would be the same Conservative MPs who in 2010, along with their Liberal and NDP counterparts, vociferously opposed allowing thenauditor general Sheila Fraser to audit their spending habits. Transparency in how unions spend their money? Absolutely. Transparency in how MPs dish our cash? Are you crazy? The vast majority of MPs reveal superficial information regarding how they spend your money and are still not required to reveal detailed receipts. Take, for example, KamloopsThompson-Cariboo Conservative MP Cathy McLeod, who voted in favour of Bill C-377, citing the need for transparency in how unions spend their members’ money. However, McLeod remains less-than-transparent when the issue is expenditures. Two years ago, I asked McLeod to break down her $110,000 travel bill, her $25,000 housing tab in Ottawa and other reported expenses. Alas, my request was refused. In the 2011-’12 fiscal year, Canada’s 308 MPs spent a collective $121.3 million, which is a 34 per cent increase from about a decade ago. The dollars have increased; information linked to those loonies have not. When it comes to union spending, our governing MPs demand the transparency of air; when it comes to how they spend your money, they cling to the transparency of lead.

Count me in for Words to parking deal love by Editor: Re: Cheaper parking would be a boon, Dec. 11 letters. I agree 100 per cent with the letter from Christine Bennet-Clark, who suggests a $55 parking pass. I live in South Surrey and dine out at least three times per week, but very seldom on White Rock beach because of the terrible parking costs. It is more the principle, than cost. I’ll be in line to buy the $55 pass if the city has the courage to instigate it. James R. Meyers, Surrey

Editor: While living in Kelowna 70 years ago, we all knew almost everyone. We had two policemen, the store owners, the doctors and the teacher. So if there was trouble, it was seldom, because there was respect for one another. Any bullying was discussed immediately by parents whose kid was involved or taken care of by the school principal. Everyone was friendly and considerate. As we entered our school doors,

we could immediately view the Ten Commandments on the wall at the entrance. Every student knew them. Why did they take them down? Looking at the world today, I thank God every day that I’m blessed to live in our Canada, with Christian roots, enjoying peace and plenty. 1. You shall have no other gods before me. 2. Then we will not be possessed by money, alcohol, drugs, fornication or carved images. 3. You shall not swear. 4. Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy. 5. Honour your father and mother. 6. You should not murder. 7. You shall not commit adultery.

8. You shall not steal. 9. You shall not lie, or bear false witness. 10. You shall not covet anyone’s husband, wife, house, car, like. etc. If every child memorized this, there would be much less acts of selfishness, crime and bullying. Also, it would make a huge difference if parents complimented their children when they obey or show kindness and consideration. To teach the commandments and live accordingly, we wouldn’t need a child to give her life to awaken her peers and those in authority. The Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Ruth Kile, Surrey

Never too old to learn to share Editor: The following is a story of community spirit gone wrong. Baby is literally climbing the walls – the pool is a best defence for tuckering him out. I look up the times available for infants to use the infant pool. Morning is our only option until suppertime. I whisk him into the car the moment he wakes to get at least 30 minutes in the pool before time for babies ends. We are greeted by the pool staff, who firmly indicate to us we must be out by noon. Adult/ seniors time is next. As we walk out on the pool deck, there are no other infants or parents in sight. Instead, senior citizens litter the infant pool, using up available seating around the edge. So baby and I wander around the middle. An elderly man uses every single pool noodle – left for the tots to play with – to fashion a flotation craft, on which he drifts listlessly around the pool, collecting the remaining toys. The staff watch, laugh and move on. I push the back of his head away as he bumps into my son. He doesn’t move or apologize. Adult/seniors time is 30 minutes away… when my infant is kicked out of the pool. For some reason, many feel it’s OK for seniors to use up toys, seating and infant pool space during infant time – and, most unfortunate, the family change room, where there is only one unit with a change table. This has been my experience many times over at the pool this fall. Don’t get me wrong – my granny lives here and loves the pool, too. Of course, seniors need the pool. This is about respect; about sharing with young people. Infants may not have words, but they certainly have rights and a place in our community. To the City of Surrey, family programming should be a positive and supported part of planning – the pool should be full of tots at parent-and-tot time. And if it’s not: you are failing in your job. To the seniors who are respectful and, believe me, they are the majority, thank you. To those who are not, please wait until seniors time if you can’t share. Or watch the kids. They may teach you a few things. Brianne Watson, Surrey

Casino supporters – evidenced by T-shirts emblazoned with the Gateway logo – outnumbered opponents Dec. 10.

Not swayed by bused-in support Editor: Re: Gateway brings in casino support by the busload, Dec. 13. The Dec. 10 casino land-use meeting at Surrey City Hall was a perfect study in contrasts. There was a presentation for sustainable growth and an increase in Surrey’s green space over the next decades. Two people spoke for the YMCA, notably a young man who emphasized the ‘safe’ environment to be found there and how that environment enabled a friend of his to dramatically change his life for the good. Then, there was the show by the Gateway Casinos proponent, who, being concerned about standing on a level playing field where thousands of affected Surrey residents have already expressed opposition to the proposed casino, bused in workers from other areas to dazzle council with their numbers. Contrary to comments by some councillors, this is not “healthy dialogue” from within the community. This is an example of what casino enterprises like to do – fix numbers to profit themselves! Based on 2011 population estimates, the expected $3 million in casino revenue for the city amounts to $6.20 per person – an unacceptable exchange for the degradation of a community and destruction of ecosystems by an enterprise that targets the vulnerable, and sends the majority of dollars outside of Surrey. I look to council to demonstrate more creative and wise ways of raising revenue than slot machines and gambling. Carol Chase, Surrey n I was surprised, when I arrived at Surrey’s council meeting Dec. 10, to see four large buses parked nearby. Two of the buses were identified as Grand Villa Casino from Burnaby. As confirmed when they left, all were from Gateway Casinos and Entertainment. When I entered city hall, I was surprised to see hundreds of people sporting identical blue T-shirts with “Strong Surrey” on the front and “YES” on the back. I was told most of these people were employees of Gateway Casinos bused in for the meeting. What a

cynical way to try to deceive council into believing there is more support for the casino than there really is. Peter Battistoni, Surrey n So now Gateway Casinos and Entertainment is busing in paid supporters to shout down the objections of the local residents to the proposed South Surrey casino. These bully tactics did not work on Vancouver city council; hopefully they will not influence Surrey council. What right do people who do not live in the area have to push their agenda on the local population? While a large convention and theatre centre may be in Surrey’s interest as a growing city, it’s doubtful the world needs yet another casino, and this site is not appropriate. Just because the developer was able to pick up a parcel of land cheap a few years ago doesn’t make this site suitable. This site sits just east of Fergus Creek and ALR lands. It is not surrounded by a sea of suburbia, as pictured in the cartoon illustrations of how the casino might look. Surrey has spent a lot of time and money on a Sustainability Charter. Its opening statement is a commitment by the city to place the principles of social, environmental and economic sustainability as the foundations of all council’s decisions. It is hard to see how this proposal fulfils anything but the last. One of the goals of the charter is to “respect natural areas and minimize the impacts of economic activities on the environment.” How is this proposal compatible? There is no transit in the area. Everyone who works there will be driving. Most patrons will also likely be driving; it’s a long cab ride from anywhere. Will they drink responsibly in the lounges and restaurants before getting back on Highway 99 to drive home? Local businesses say they support the proposal now, but it’s hard to see how they will benefit. With acres of free parking, I imagine the proposed restaurants would suck business away from White Rock’s waterfront, particularly in winter. It will compete with hotels. I can’t imagine what the northern part of Surrey could hope to gain from a development on the southern-most edge of South Surrey. K. Ross, Surrey

Akonyu Akolo scheduled for four-day trial

Former city planner in court Kevin Diakiw Black Press

A former planner with the City of Surrey is back in court again today (Thursday). On April 15, 2010, Akonyu Geoffrey Akolo became the subject of a police investigation after it was discovered money had gone missing from city hall. Akolo has been charged with five counts in relation to the missing funds, but the details of the charges are covered by a publication ban. Akolo, a 47-year-old Ugandan with a master’s degree in planning from UBC, was in charge of area planning and development for South Surrey. Akolo appeared briefly in court on Monday where he sat with his arms crossed and looked relaxed. The details of Monday’s hearing is subject to a publication ban.

Human error blamed Human error is being blamed for a fire last week at an underconstruction house in White Rock. “It’s what we call human failing, and it’s ignorance of hazard,” deputy fire Chief Bob Schlase said Monday. The blaze broke out at the Maple Street home around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday (Dec. 12), as framers worked in the basement and a roofer was “torching” a rubber seal. Schlase said the torch ignited fumes from a product that was being used to prime the wood. “I don’t think they understood how severe the product is for that possibility,” Schlase said, noting the primer was about six feet away from where the roofer was working. The 32-year-old roofer, who jumped to escape the fire, suffered a broken wrist and second-degree burns to 20 per cent of his body. - Tracy Holmes

The trial is scheduled for Evan Seal photo four days. Akonyu Akolo leaves court Monday.

Medical marijuana to be produced by commercial growers

Authorized grow-ops axed Kevin Diakiw Black Press

The federal government is poised to eliminate licensed medical marijuana grow-ops in homes that have long been criticized over safety concerns and connections to the illegal drug trade. Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq announced Sunday a planned shift to a new system of federally regulated commercial producers of medical pot who will supply authorized users who have a prescription from their doctor. “Under our new rule, only facilities that meet strict security requirements will be able to produce marijuana for medical purposes,” Aglukkaq told a press conference in Maple Ridge on Sunday. The new system –  which also ends government production of medical pot – is expected to come at a sharply higher price for the nearly 26,000 users authorized to possess medical marijuana. Local authorities have argued most medical pot home growers are producing far more plants than they require, suggesting rampant abuse of the program by licensees selling into the illicit market. The Fire Chiefs Association of B.C. (FCABC) said the change will improve safety in residential neighbourhoods. “The fire service across Canada has been raising the alarm about the fire and safety risks associated with growing marijuana indoors for many years,” said FCABC president

Leona Aglukkaq speaks at a press conference in Maple Ridge. Len Garis, who is also Surrey’s fire chief. “We applaud the government for taking action on this issue.” Garis stressed that the fire service has never been concerned about the use of marijuana for medical purposes. “Our focus is on how medical marijuana is grown,” he said. “The fact is, medical marijuana has typically been grown in a residential setting, which is not suitable or safe for growing marijuana.” Under the previous regulations, medical marijuana grow operations operated without their local municipal government’s knowledge or approval, and were not subject to health, fire, building or plumbing inspections.

Research indicates that both criminal and medical residential marijuana grow operations result in similar health, fire and safety hazards associated with unsafe electrical work, structural changes and excessive moisture. Taking marijuana production out of homes and into a licensed commercial environment is a step in the right direction, Garis said. The federal Ministry of Health said it intends to implement the system by March 31, 2014. The government is holding a 75-day comment period for the public to give feedback on the proposal (at http://bit.ly/U4xtqi), which will end on Feb. 28, 2013. – with files from Jeff Nagel and CTV News

‘God’s Little Acre’ looks to expand

Aiming to fill growing need Dan Ferguson

A

Staff Reporter

South Surrey farmer who has been growing free food for the needy is planning to open a produce store. Jas Singh, who operates God’s Little Acre farm at 16582 40 Ave., estimates he has given away more than 100,000 pounds of fresh vegetables to individuals, local food banks and other charitable organizations during the farm’s first two years. For Year 3, Singh is planning to convert a building on the site into a members-only farm stand that will subsidize the farms’ food donations by selling $100 memberships. Singh hopes to have “God’s Little Acre Club” operating by next May. Limited to 300 members for the first year, the club will allow families to purchase local and imported produce at 25 to 50 per cent off. ❝We’re hoping Members will be permitted to that the majority sign up needy people for free of people we sign using a “buddy card.” up will be people Singh says disabled people, seniors, single parents, anyone in need.❞ on social assistance or signed up for any poverty relief program Jas Singh – such as the Christmas Bureau God’s Little Acre or the food bank system – will qualify. On Sunday, Singh showed a Peace Arch News reporter where the farm stand would be located and how he plans to uses about 30 tons of trucked-in soil to produce a mineral-enriched environment for growing better quality produce. “This will make us self-sufficient,” Singh said of the planned membership program. “We’re hoping that the majority of people we sign up will be people in need.” He is also hoping to raise $4,000 to build an 80-by-40foot greenhouse. Singh said the farm does not plan to seek organic certification “in order to keep prices reasonable.” He said the move to establish the farm stand and the membership club is a result of his own frustration with “the lack of interest for straight donations.” The farm operates on a 30-acre parcel of donated land that used to be a chicken farm. It currently reports that it has 150 volunteers. One of those unpaid workers, Cloverdale resident Vicki Olson, was present Sunday. Singh said Olson’s role in the farm has grown considerably since she first started volunteering, to the point where she functions as its operations manager. Olson, who said she comes from a farming background, was pleased by the comments, but not sure she liked the title. “Maybe you could think of something else,” she told Singh as the visit wrapped up. People interested in the club can sign up by email at jassingh65@hotmail.com and then download the forms from the web page www.godslittleacrefarm.com

THREE-SOME DAYS Cutting it short for Christmas AT POTTERS Mother-daughter team donate hair to charity

Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Elizabeth Atchison was a girl of few words last Thursday, but the shy six-year-old’s efforts to help other children spoke volumes. After six years with barely a trim to her fair-coloured hair, the youngster let her mom cut 17 inches off of her locks so that other children may have hair. “She wanted to give somebody her hair for Christmas,” Elizabeth’s mom, Christina explained. Elizabeth got the idea from her mom, who has donated her hair to charity before – three times, in fact. Based in Ontario, A Child’s Voice Foundation’s Angel Hair for Kids program provides wigs for children who have lost their hair due to a medical condition or treatment, whose families are struggling financially. “I always had long hair and when I decided I wanted it short, I knew somebody who donated her hair – I didn’t know you could do that,” Christina said. “I thought, what a great idea.” Elizabeth, a student at Langley

Elizabeth Atchison, 6, carefully cuts her mom Christina’s hair – with help from stylist Aase Kunkel – before getting her own lopped off. Meadows Community School, announced her decision to follow suit a year ago. Thursday, at The Cut salon in South Surrey where Christina works, Elizabeth performed her mom’s fourth charity trim – cutting off 13” – before climbing into the stylist’s chair herself.

“I’m so proud of you,” Christina told a beaming, short-haired Elizabeth moments later. According to the A Child’s Voice Foundation’s website, it takes 10-12 ponytails to make one wig, at a cost of $800 to $1,000. For more information, visit www.acvf.ca

Emergency supplies for surprise visits

You’d better be prepared for these not-soimprobable scenarios! Christmas is a time of year when surprise visits may happen at any moment, and that’s why it’s so important to always be stocked up on emergency supplies, just in case. Here are some ideas for your stock of supplies: • A few bottles of wine (red, white and rosé); • Two different types of beer, with a few bottles of each keeping nice and cool in the fridge; • Fresh fruits and vegetables for making a fast fruit salad or veggies and dip; • Juices for the children; • Folding chairs; • An ashtray for smokers;

The ten Christmas commandments

Turkeys

• Crackers and cheeses; • Everything required to prepare the most popular cocktails (vodka, rum, tequila, gin, curacao, Baileys, fruit juice, citrus fruits, Maraschino cherries, a shaker, glasses, ice cubes, etc.); • Mineral water or pop for those who don’t drink alcohol; • A selection of coffees (with and without caffeine), teas and herbal teas, not forgetting milk, cream, and sugar; • Frozen dishes, especially hors d’oeuvres and other appetizers; • Paper napkins in sufficient quantities; • A handy source of music (CD or MP3 player, etc.); • Packs of cards, board and video games; • And, last but not least, your welcoming smile!

“absence of leadership” with no senior officers at the Vancouver Police Department

or RCMP taking ongoing responsibility for the case. As part of measures for reconciliation and healing, Oppal calls on the province to set up a compensation fund for children of missing and murdered women, and a healing fund for families. The inquiry heard senior VPD officers resisted the theory that a serial killer was preying on women in the Downtown Eastside. Oppal said Pickton should have been a strong suspect for police after the early 1997 knife fight at his Port Coquitlam farm where a prostitute escaped and “died twice on the operating table” before doctors resuscitated her. She told RCMP officers in hospital that Pickton was picking up women regularly and she believed they were vanishing at the farm. Prosecutors later dropped an attempted-murder charge after deciding the addicted victim wasn’t reliable enough to testify. Nineteen more women went missing after the 1997 incident, and Oppal said the VPD were far too slow to warn sex-trade workers a serial killer was likely in

their midst. The RCMP never took Pickton up on his offer to let them search the farm. Oppal said another “colossal failure” happened in 1998 when Mounties “remarkably” agreed not to interview Pickton for months after his brother said it would be better for the farm to wait for the rainy season. In 2001, Mounties dismissed the advice of an RCMP summer student who wrote a paper correctly suggesting a serial killer was to blame. In early 2002, when Pickton was finally arrested, it happened after a rookie officer – executing a search warrant to look for guns – found underwear and women’s IDs linked to the missing women. “Pickton wan’t even attempting to make any attempt to hide the fruits of his violent acts,” Oppal said. “It was there for anybody to see.” Pickton was convicted on six counts of second-degree murder although the DNA or remains of 33 women were found on the farm and he boasted to an undercover officer he killed 49 women.

Pinocchio has heart about doing the right thing and not and appealing performers who letting your friends down. understand the idiom, and director The traditional panto recipe Susanne de Pencier has kept it all is pretty closely adhered to here

sight lines

– songs and dances for chorus and solos and duos for all the principals, the charmingly chaste romance of principal ‘boy’ and girl, flashpots for magical entrances, even a schoolroom scene for the Dame and a costume change for the principals at the finale. I suppose it might be possible, even at this late date, to be surprised by the cross-dressing conventions of the genre, or the fact that, while the wee ones are entranced by the fantasy, colour and knockabout nonsense, some of the humour, including political references, is aimed well over their heads to amuse the grown-ups. But there’s nothing in Pinocchio to shock anyone who’s enjoyed any of the other 57 pantomimes in White Rock Players Club’s history, and certainly nothing that offended the sensibilities of happy children, parents and grandparents at the performance I saw. Indeed, I’ve seen and heard far more questionably

‘adult’ jokes in many G-rated animated movies at the multiplexes. The cast, from principals to an agreeably all-ages chorus, can’t be overpraised for their contributions. As Pinocchio, Michelle Gaetz is everything one could ask of a principal boy – she sings tunefully and plays broadly, imbuing the cheeky puppet with tons of spirit, while conveying his moral dilemmas clearly and sympathetically enough to engage the attention of even the youngest children in the audience. Melissa Paras, as Isabella, complements Gaetz’s performance admirably. She makes a winsome heroine – while supplying the necessary fire to tell Pinocchio off when he needs it – and her trained voice comes as a pleasant surprise in her solo number, My White Knight. Jennifer Tiles and Elyse Raible are simply splendid as scene-stealing secondary villains Fox and Cat. Excellent character costumes

and makeup obviously help, but Tiles provides character aplenty as a wonderfully devious Fox, while Raible contributes her own charming twist to the goofier Cat. Bryce Mills, as Miss Ann Thrope, is a great and suitably hideous Dame. He clearly understands every nuance of the broad comedy required, while being a strong enough personality to carry the responsibility of a role that is crucial to the success of a panto (and his torchy rendition of Etta James’ hit At Last is quite frightening). As Ann’s inamorata, Admiral Horatio Sootblower, Ray Van Ieperen has plenty of opportunity to deliver his uniquely effective, twitchy style of comedy, as well as some funny zingers at the expense of a certain B.C. government corporation – and Ann and Horatio’s duet, The Wonderful Year We Fell In Love, is a genuine › see page 28

A classic panto

Thursday, December 20, 2012 Peace Arch News

arts & entertainment Pinocchio follows the classic panto formula with a principal boy, Michelle Gaetz, and a Dame portrayed by Bryce Mills.

› from page 27 highlight, thanks in no small measure to another clever topical lyric by Tom Saunders. Krystle Hadlow, as the more responsible of the Gemini Cricket twins who advise Pinocchio (a part also featuring Carly Miller in some performances) and Reilly Olexson, as the irresponsible one, contribute a delightful energy to the proceedings, and good singing in the duet Anything You Can Do (I Can Do Better). Ryan Elliott, as The Fairy Godfather, succeeds in making his character’s SopranosGoodfellas schtick amusing, while Nigel Watkinson, as Gepetto, finds just the right note in delivering panto exposition and gentle pathos. There’s the requisite pathos, too, in Melanie Minty’s performance as Isabella’s mom, a flower seller turned dancing puppet, and in Patte Rust’s appropriately sad characterization of the long-enslaved Old Puppet (a role played in alternating performances by Suzanne Benson). Musical director Kerry O’ Donovan supplies a thoroughly professional touch with his keyboard accompaniments, while Lena Dabrusin contributes some serviceable movement for a largely nondancing cast. Pinocchio runs until Dec. 29 at Coast Capital Playhouse.

2012 Coats for Kids campaign a success By Kerry Vital

The Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association is proud to announce that this year’s annual Coats for Kids campaign was a resounding success. “We brought in around 3,300 items,” says GVHBA CEO Bob de Wit. “That’s about 10 per cent more than last year.” Among the items collected were jackets, scarves, toys and blankets, all of which will be donated to the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau. “It was a great year,” says de Wit. “There were so many community members getting involved, including schools and hockey teams.” Next year, de Wit wants to collect 4,000 items. “We are really happy to be part of it,” he says. “It’s really gratifying ... to know that we’re helping.” The Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau is run by executive

director Chris Bayliss, who de Wit compares to Santa Claus. “During their busy season, he’s there working 20 hours a day,” de Wit says, adding, “It’s a labour of love for him and his staff.”

The Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association has a busy calendar for the year ahead, with events for homeowners, builders and other real estate professionals. The BC Home & Garden Show will take place on Feb. 20 to 24 at BC Place. The GVHBA is a partner in the event and presents the Renovation Gallery that showcases before and after photos of professional renovations. The show features local experts in all aspects of home ownership, from renovation to organization, appearances by HGTV celebrities and tons of tips for outdoor living

and gardening. The GVHBA Ovation Awards will be handed out on April 20 at a gala awards dinner. The awards honour the best of the best in newhome construction, renovation and design in the Lower Mainland. The finalists will be announced on Feb. 6. The GVHBA will hand out the People’s Choice Award for the first time, giving the public a chance to vote for their favourite new or renovated project. The annual First-Time Home Buyer Seminar will be presented on March 19. The seminar gives prospective buyers a chance learn from experts on all aspects of the home-buying process. Builders and suppliers are in attendance beforehand to allow you to ask questions. The seminar is

the largest of its kind in North America, and is always wellattended. The GVHBA will also hold its annual Spring Renovation Seminar in May, with the date to be announced. The event is free (though pre-registration is required), and features renovators, designers and suppliers who will guide homeowners through every step of the renovation process. The Parade of Renovated Homes will take place on June 9. The public will be invited to tour professionally renovated homes in the Metro Vancouver area. This year will be the 20th annual parade, which always includes a variety of home types and budgets. For more information and a list of events, visit www.gvhba.org.

Mini is survived by her husband Pieter, her sister Hilda, children Margaret (David), Peter (Elizabeth), and Yvonne (Dick), her grandchildren Craig, Kevin, Raymond, Jordy and her great grandchildren, Ethan and Aaron. Mini was born in the Netherlands and lived in Indonesia as a child. She returned to Holland and studied physiotherapy. After the war, she married Pieter and went with him to Indonesia. She had her first son Bert (who died of meningitis at age 3), followed by daughter Margaret. After immigration to Canada, she had her son Peter and daughter Yvonne. She lived in Victoria, then Port Alberni, returned to Holland (Rotterdam), then back to Vancouver, where she practiced speech therapy, and retired in White Rock. A Remembrance Gathering to be held on January 5th at 1:00pm at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre located at 14831 28th Avenue, Surrey. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the White Rock South Surrey Hospice Society in memory of Hermine Driessen.

JONES, Lorne Scot Gordon Feb. 23 1949 - Nov. 29 2012 Author, musician, inventor, actor, philosopher and poet, born on Toronto Island. Lorne’s courageous struggle with brain cancer (Glioblastoma Multiforme) ended on Nov. 29 in the compassionate care of the Peace Arch Hospice. Darling husband and cherished best friend to Patti, devoted father to Tania, Tara (David), and Kenneth. Beloved grandfather to Casmira, Lila and Rowen, deeply missed son to Lorraine, and dearest brother to Kandy. Remembered for his many years of heartfelt community work with Camp Alexandra, his dedicated skill as an irrigation technician, and his boundless love of humour. Deepest thanks to Terry and Linda, and all the friends and family who have been so extraordinarily supportive and dear to Lorne and all of us. A celebration of Lorne’s life will be held on the afternoon of February 23, 2013 at Beecher Place in Crescent Beach.

Over the past 12 years, Peace Arch News Christmas Fund has donated over $275,000 to individuals and families in need throughout South Surrey and White Rock. Each year donations to the Christmas Fund by individuals and organizations, along with funds raised at Vintage Affair, are used to purchase food gift cards and help provide a Christmas meal for those alone on Christmas Day. Now more than ever your help is needed to meet our goal of $25,000. Please mail or stop by the Peace Arch News with your donation. Charitable receipts will be issued through the Peninsula Community Foundation.
