120 speakers postponed to second meeting Friday, after 72 talk into the wee hours Tuesday

City doubles down on casino hearings Kevin Diakiw Black Press

It’s Surrey’s longest public hearing, at least in the last 35 years – and perhaps ever. A marathon meeting over a proposal for a casino and entertainment complex in South Surrey will continue Friday night at city hall. On Monday, a crowd of more than 500 packed the hall over the issue, with 192 people registering to address council. By 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, less than half of that number had been heard, so council plans to hear from the remaining 120 people on Friday, beginning at 7 p.m. If the meeting continues at Monday’s pace, it will run until 5 a.m., or be continued on a third night. Sign-up for speakers is now closed, so council will only hear from those who already have a number from Monday. Former Surrey mayor Bob Bose, who sat on council from 1978 to 2011, said Wednesday he’s never seen a public hearing go on for this long. The $100-million project has been highly contentious amongst local residents for Spectator looks the better part of into chambers. a year. It’s slated to include a 60,000-sq.-ft. gaming area, 200-room hotel and a 27,000-sq.-ft. convention and

The casino promises to bring in $3 million in revenue each year to its host city. The development is planned for an 18-acre parcel of land at 10 Avenue and 168 Street. Gateway Casinos & Entertainment Inc. is proposing to move its gaming licence from 7093 King George Blvd. to a yet-to-be-built facility on the land. Surrey council zoned the South Surrey property for a casino two years ago, with little objection

from the public. However, that has changed significantly, with many area residents now opposed. Semiahmoo First Nation council member Joanne Charles said she couldn’t support nor speak against the proposal, because the band wasn’t brought into the consultation process. “We were not consulted... at any time,” Charles told council. Susan Lindenberger said she felt misled by the information that has

been presented to the public. “We are all tired of listening to the half-truths spun by those who would foist this casino upon us,” Lindenberger said. She also doesn’t buy into the romantic notion of a destination entertainment area, and instead sees “individuals pushing buttons over and over, chasing their losses.” Surrey Board of Trade CEO Anita Huberman said the casino and entertainment centre “can and

will be a real destination.” She said it’s high time Surrey had an entertainment complex of this magnitude. “This is much more than a casino,” she said. Others in favour of the project told council it’s time to grow into a big city and recognize the promising economic benefits and the jobs that will come with the entertainment complex. › see page 4

Epcor presentation ends with councillors voting to consider options

White Rock considers switch to Metro water Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

White Rock city staff are investigating the possibility of linking to Metro Vancouver’s water system. The research –  including associated costs of such a move and what it would involve – was suggested by Coun. Helen Fathers following a presentation Monday by officials

with Epcor, the city’s water supplier. It would be an advantage for the city to know, Fathers explained, describing a city decision to not buy the utility when it had the chance as “a mistake.” But the suggestion did not receive unanimous support. “I think the fact of the matter is there is no alternative,” said Mayor Wayne Baldwin.

“Unless we buy Epcor…” Coun. Larry Robinson also voted against the move, suggesting it will give the impression that such a switch wouldn’t be complicated. “I don’t think we should lead the citizens to believe we can just turn off one tap and turn on another,” he said. Betty Icharia, manager of the White Rock

Epcor office, Lee Jenkins (senior manager of B.C. operations) and Clayton Crawford (senior manager of municipal projects) were at city hall to speak on the utility’s Total Water Quality Management project. It is a plan to carry out $11-12 million in system upgrades over the next five years, and includes increasing chlorination. › see page 4

Deaths, hospitalizations abnormally high in long-term care facilities

Masks mandatory as flu hazard declared Jeff Nagel Black Press

This year’s severe flu season is killing or hospitalizing far more elderly care home residents than usual, prompting Fraser Health to declare a health hazard and invoke special powers to protect the vulnerable. Anyone going to a residential care or assisted-living facility in the region – which includes White Rock and South Surrey – who hasn’t had the flu shot this year must now wear a mask and practise stringent hand hygiene while there, chief medical health officer Dr. Paul van Buynder ordered Tuesday. The infection-prevention directive issued under the Public Health Act applies to all staff, volunteers and visitors.

“We’re in the midst of an outbreak, there’s a public health risk and these are frail elderly that need to be protected,” van Buynder said. There have been flu outbreaks (declared once three cases are noted) at more than 20 long-term residential care homes in Fraser Health so far this year – more than twice as many as in each of the previous two years. “The rate of people who are dying is much higher than in previous years,” van Buynder said, adding flu fatalities so far are triple the number at care homes for the last three years combined. “Well over 500 people have been ill.” Facilities affected locally have included the Dr. Al Hogg Pavilion at Peace Arch Hospital, where outbreaks were declared on Jan. 10

(gastrointestinal) and Jan. 12 (respiratory). There have been more than four times the number of flu-related hospitalizations from long-term care facilities than in a typical flu season, van Buynder said. “It doesn’t seem to be as severe in the other health authorities at this stage. It’s a response that’s happening in Fraser because we’ve got much more activity than the others.” Although long-term care residents are generally vaccinated against flu, van Buynder said they’re still greatly at risk because of their weak immune systems. People who refuse to comply with the order to wear masks and wash with alcohol hand sanitizer will be turned away. “I believe people will do the right thing,”

van Buynder said. The order will remain in effect, including at facilities where there is no current outbreak, until the threat of transmission from the community to the facilities’ residents abates. Health-sector unions last year resisted the provincial government’s infection control policy that required workers to wear masks throughout the flu season if they refused the flu shot. Enforcement of that initiative was put on hold for a year but Fraser Health officials say the region’s order now takes precedence. Unvaccinated care-home employees who refuse to wear a mask are to be sent home without pay. – with files from Tracy Holmes

Conflicting police info

Surrey residents safe: Fordy A recent spate of shootings in Surrey – four were killed in 36 hours since Sunday – has prompted the city’s top cop to reassure residents that their safety is not at risk. Acknowledging that some may be fearful after the shootings, Surrey RCMP Chief Supt. Bill Fordy, in a press release issued Tuesday afternoon, suggested the murders are gang-related. Residents are safe, he said, because “the overwhelming majority of (Surrey) residents are lawabiding citizens with no involvement with criminal activity.” Fordy said the violence is restricted to those involved in illegal activities, as is the case not just in Surrey but other cities, too. “There is nothing glamorous about life in the underworld of crime,” he said. “This is not television – the harsh reality is being played out here and now and is a testament to the fact that the life expectancy of anyone involved in criminal gangs is very short. “If you involve yourself in this level of criminal activity, the likelihood of you ending up dead in a ditch or in jail is very high – I would say it is inevitable.” However, an hour later, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team identified two Surrey men found dead in a parkade Sunday, stating no evidence has connected the victims to gang activity. John Edward McGiveron and Geordie Wesley Carlow, both 33, were found at an apartment building near 128 Street and 94 Avenue late Sunday. Police say both men were known to them. “IHIT can say that evidence retrieved thus far does not support this homicide to be gang-related,” said Sgt. Jennifer Pound. Earlier Sunday, at about 7 p.m., Manjot Dhillon, 27 was shot near 168 Street and 76 Avenue. He died in hospital. Tuesday, Manjinder ‘Manny’ Hairan, 29, died after being shot at 127 Street and 112B Avenue at around 2 a.m.

Partners in crime-fighting

Rookie in retirement after long career Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

After nearly eight years in pursuit of bad guys, the RCMP’s Rookie is hanging up his leash. Rookie, a German shepherd partnered with Const. Chris Kajan in the Lower Mainland District Integrated Police Dog Services unit, worked his last shift last week. He ended his service in style, tracking and catching a theft suspect just hours before calling it a career. The partners – among 44 police-dog teams in the police dog service – happened to be in the Whalley neighbourhood when the call for assistance came around 3 a.m. last Thursday. A stolen Honda Civic had been dumped at the side of a road and the driver had fled on foot. Rookie quickly picked up a track and he and Kajan followed the trail through a residential area and over a fence, catching up to the suspect as he tried to scale a second fence. Rookie pulled the man down by his leg, and Kajan took a 32-year-old into custody. “Rookie’s last shift couldn’t have been better,” Kajan said. “He made me really proud.” The pair have been on the beat together in Surrey, White Rock and Langley since 2006. They made headlines in Peace Arch News nearly four years ago, after both were dragged while trying to stop a stolen-car suspect. Kajan and Rookie had been called to the 17100-block of 0 Avenue to track an alleged border runner

when the chase took an unexpected turn. A second man who ran to a car at the sight of the officer sped off as Kajan reached in through the vehicle window in an attempt to stop him. Kajan suffered scrapes, bruises and a knee injury; Rookie was uninjured. More recently, the pair nabbed a man found to have five outstanding warrants for his arrest, after tracking a suspect for nearly an hour through rural properties from 176 Street and 23 Avenue to 172 Street and 32 Avenue. They were also on duty in November the day two South Surrey elementary schools were locked down while police investigated an interrupted break-and-enter in the Morgan Creek area. Two individuals were arrested. “We’ve been through a lot, in all sorts of areas, too,” Kajan, 37, said, citing robberies, missing-person alerts and break-ins as among the types of files they’ve worked on throughout the Lower Mainland over the years.

“I’m sure he’ll miss it.” Kajan started preparing Rookie for retirement just over a year ago. The role of family pet is far less intense than that of a working police dog, and he knew the transition would take time. Throughout his career, home for Rookie has been an outdoor enclosure and doghouse in Kajan’s Langley backyard. He never went on family trips, and his feeding schedule was reward-based. Since October, however, Rookie has been discovering life inside Kajan’s family home. Last month, for the first time, he was included in Christmas festivities, taking it all in from a perch atop the dog bed Kajan gave him as a present. He’s also been camping, has frolicked on the beach and goes for walks with Kajan’s wife – activities that simply weren’t options before. Kajan also had to wean Rookie off of his training, leaving him in his vehicle more often to watch as Kajan began introducing his new canine partner, Dutch, to police work. The new partners officially started duty on Monday. Hours after finishing his last shift last week, Rookie – along with Kajan and Dutch – took to trails in South Surrey’s Campbell Heights. While Rookie showed a bit of a cheeky side, seeming to know he didn’t have to follow orders quite as stringently anymore, it was clear by his intent focus that the police dog in him won’t soon disappear. “He’s always have that in him,” said Kajan.

Addiction a concern for speakers › from page 1 The casino proposal requires the approval from the BC Lottery Corp. (BCLC), which has said it won’t move forward without the blessing of Surrey council. Some opposed to the casino said they were worried about the amount of gaming addiction it would bring to the community. Paul Smith, BCLC director of corporate responsibility, told Surrey council 4.6 per cent of B.C. residents have gambling problems. He noted that six new casinos

have been opened in the last decade, with no increase in the amount of  problem gambling. He attributed that to several initiatives underway by BCLC, such as GameSense, a gambling assessment and counselling service run by the corporation. The Newton property will close when the South Surrey location is ready, according to Jim Lightbody, BCLC’s vice-president of casino and community gaming. The Newton site has been fraught with controversy since it was first proposed. It was the

subject of a contentious public hearing in 2009, when gaming critics were pitted against notfor-profit organizations, which rely heavily on gaming revenues. Council passed the gaming expansion in Newton on a 5-4 vote, even though it contravened the city’s own gaming policy. The company that won the rezoning later  flipped the property to Gateway, which is now at the forefront of the move south. City councillors have said publicly they no longer want the Newton gaming facility.

Epcor plans to increase water rates › from page 1 The application is to meet a Fraser Health Authority deadline of full chlorination by March 31, 2016. The supply has been partially chlorinated since contamination triggered a boil-water advisory in 2010. If approved, the work would boost the average residential customer’s bill by four per cent per year, from 2014 through 2017. According to figures shared Monday, a customer currently paying $20.55 per month will see their bill climb to $37.03 in the fifth year with the rate boost (compared to $24.04 without). Council members asked what

prompted the chlorination; if the aquifer would be chlorinated; if Epcor was contributing any of the funding for the upgrades; how White Rock compares to other municipalities with regard to water use; and if residents would be able to taste the chlorine. “Are we going to taste chlorine in our water now, after all these years?” Coun. Al Campbell asked. Jenkins noted that while some people are more sensitive, the level proposed –  0.2 milligrams per litre at the tap – is generally “not offensive.” Jenkins confirmed the full cost of the upgrades will “absolutely”

be recovered. Regarding the other questions, the Epcor officials confirmed the aquifer will not be chlorinated; that White Rock residents are “in the ballpark” of other cities when it comes to water use; and that the move to chlorinate is to meet Fraser Health operating-permit conditions.

Epcor open house Epcor customers were notified of the application last month. An open house outlining the project is set for today (Thursday), from 1:30-4 p.m. and 6-8 p.m. at White Rock Community Centre, 15154 Russell Ave.

‘Clear as mud’ for muffler site proposal

Committee rejects changes Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A White Rock councillor who chastised a developer for asking the city to allow height increases on two of five buildings proposed for West Beach was applauded for the move in city hall Monday. “Every two feet that is in your face and shouldn’t be there is wrong,” said Coun. Al Campbell, commenting on zoning amendments brought to the land use and planning committee. “Don’t come to us looking for an extra two feet that you’re not entitled to.” Campbell was referring to a request made by proponents of a complex that was approved more than a year ago at the site of White Rock Mufflers at the base of Oxford Street. At that time, plans consisted of a four-storey apartment building, two three-storey townhouse structures and a segment of two-storey townhouses over at-grade commercial units. Richmond-based LLW Holdings Ltd. asked for revisions after taking ownership of the site in September. In addition to more height, a request was made to add a fifth two-unit building; the number of planned residential units has been decreased to 62 from 67 and parking has been increased. The need for one height increase

Coun. Al Campbell speaks out about the height increases.

was attributed to a miscalculation of the flood plain; the second was requested to create better “balance.” In detailing the latest application, Paul Stanton – the city’s director of planning and development services – said the developer “ran into a few complications” when it was realized residential units of one building were designed to start below the flood plain level. To address the problem, the building needs to start about two feet higher, putting the finished structure above zoning limits. Without the increase, “they would lose a storey on top,” Stanton said. Stanton told Peace Arch News Wednesday that the flood plain issue was missed by the city and developer alike.

“They missed that, we missed that,” he said. “We all knew about it beforehand, but we all forgot about it because the focus was on the height.” A similar explanation did not ease Coun. Helen Fathers’ concerns Monday. “It’s as clear as mud to me,” she said, questioning the legality of moving ahead when the previous approval was based on inaccurate information –  an issue Stanton assured doesn’t exist. Campbell said he is not convinced city staff should share blame. “I don’t buy that at all,” he said. “It was (the developer’s) error putting it in the flood plain.” Campbell added that if the applicant can’t make money without a fourth floor, “then you paid too much for that land.” Mayor Wayne Baldwin asked if the proposal meets the guidelines of the Official Community Plan. Stanton confirmed it did. A motion by Fathers to “reject the zoning amendment bylaw as outlined” passed with Couns. Larry Robinson and Louise Hutchinson opposed. Baldwin later said clarification is needed. Asked about the potential impact of the decision on the development, Baldwin said it may lead to “a lost opportunity.” “And that’s a shame.”

Omnibus bills should be limited

I

f the federal Conservative government hasn’t already thought about its penchant for omnibus bills in Parliament, it needs to. The Idle No More movement – which included a Jan. 5 protest at the Douglas border crossing – has focused some of its attention on changes to federal legislation like the Navigable Waters Protection Act and Environmental Assessment Act, which are rolled into an omnibus bill. These bills, often part of a budget, give MPs little chance to debate important issues because there are so many items jammed together. The Conservatives did not invent this strategy, but they have honed it to a fine art. Omnibus bills began appearing regularly during the five years the Conservatives governed with a minority, and were often crafted in such a way as to keep at least one opposition party from voting against the government. While this was an understandable legislative strategy, the need for such omnibus bills does not exist when there is a majority government. But the government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper likes the approach, because it limits the usefulness of Parliament and the ability of its critics to draw much public attention. That worked fine when critics were solely from the opposition parties. But when they are from outside Parliament and are energized by a variety of causes, as is Idle No  More, omnibus bills have the potential to do harm. The harm comes from emasculating legitimate opposition in Parliament, where differences within a democracy need to be discussed. If too many people believe Parliament doesn’t work any more, and this leads them to do serious damage to Canada’s economy because of their frustrations, omnibus bills become very dangerous. The Conservative government has nothing to fear from its opponents in Parliament. It has a majority, and it should be ready and willing to hear criticism of its plans within an elected assembly. The prime minister would serve the interests of all Canadians if he pledged to restrict or even eliminate omnibus bills for the remainder of this Parliament’s term. Idle No More may be a loose and disorganized movement, but it has the potential to serve as a force for either positive or negative change. The federal government needs to choose a path which is working towards positive change – on all types of issues.

their lives in such a fashion is the lack of consequences. If the culprits were held accountable – or maybe even punished – for being late all the time, maybe they would realize that the world doesn’t (or at least shouldn’t) wait for them. As I vented to my husband a few months back about the time I’d wasted waiting on Sue that day, he asked me flat out: “Why do you put up with it?” I didn’t really have an answer. Because she’s my friend? Because I’m used to it? Because that’s just the way she is? A few weeks later I found myself waiting on her yet again, and I decided enough was enough. I texted her and politely said that we had missed our window of opportunity to visit and she’d have to see me and the little one another time. (If there’s one way to get through to a person, it’s depriving them of some baby-time. People go crazy when it comes to babies… but that’s another column all together.) After being flooded with apologies and excuses, Sue admitted something to me I never thought I’d hear: “I really need to stop being so late, huh?” Will she ever change? It’s hard to say, but I’d like to think that by not letting her get away with it every time, I’ve helped her to realize there’s a reason why people have schedules they need to stick to. After all, she might become a mother herself one day – and nothing will force her to address her disorganization and time-management issues like a baby. And to be honest, I can hardly wait.

Unreasonable expectations Editor: Re: Trains should take a break for us, Jan. 10 letters. The letter writer is clearly bothered by the sight, sound and very presence of the “inconsiderate houseguest,” “inconsiderate bully” and “rude American train which has no consideration for anyone else.” But, suggesting that the train timetable should be rescheduled to accommodate White Rock festivals or favouring government expropriation seems to be an unreasonable expectation. Trains are not rude and train companies are not inconsiderate bullies, though people can be. Moving and connecting goods and people on schedule every day is what trains do. It is a good thing. In fact, it is awesome. The sight and sound of these trains remind me of this vital service that we often take for granted. After so many years, I am still thrilled to watch a train go by. The train did not spoil that beautiful sunny New Year’s Day. But the disproportionate response of anger and indignation caused by the trains’ brief interruption did indeed ruin her “perfect day.” M. Trevelyan, White Rock

In the right to reject meters Editor: What part of “Stop, you are hurting us” does BC Hydro and the current government not understand? The wireless smart-meter program is hurting us financially and physically – insomnia, tinnitus, headaches, compromised immune systems and more documented short-and long-term health effects. It has the potential to invade our privacy and compromise security by making this enormous grid vulnerable to hackers and terrorists. This is not fear mongering; this is, unfortunately, the truth. Those of us who have woken up know that we must stand up for what is right. Former premier Gordon Campbell, by creating the “Clean Energy Act,” allowed the smartmeter program to bypass the BC Utilities Commission. This program would never have passed the scrutiny of the Utilities Commission. The “Clean Energy

Act” isn’t clean at all. It’s dirty through and through, and BC Hydro says that they can’t afford to run two systems. Because the BC Utilities Commission can’t, we ordinary, conscious citizens must tell them that the smart-meter program is the wrong way to go. Allow consumers the choice and don’t charge for an opt-out option. By refusing to comply with this program, we are trying to save ourselves – taxpayers – hundreds of thousands of dollars in future health-care costs. When will we stop pretending that the environment we create or allow to be created around us has nothing to do with the state of our health

and the quality of our lives? If you have recently gotten a letter from BC Hydro saying time’s up, please continue to refuse. Stay strong, we are in the right. Tanesa Kiso, White Rock

Restrict access and stay safe Editor: Re: Gun control begets more violence, Jan. 8 letters. Because of Canada’s stricter gun controls, we have thousands of fewer deaths by guns than the U.S.

When the American Constitution was written, there did not exist assault rifles capable of shooting up to 100 rounds of ammo in minutes. The recent mass killings in the U.S. have been done with assault rifles. There must be strict gun controls and more help for the mentally ill in society. They must be recognized earlier and not allowed gun access. Many are fearful because of all the conspiracy theories circulated and so feel the need to be armed. Homicide of a family member is 2.7 times more likely to occur in a home with a firearm. So the idea that gun control begets more violence is totally false. L. Pfortmueller, Surrey

George and Joan Garret encourage others to join the Walk for Memories at Eaglequest Coyote Creek on Jan. 27.

The sad evolution of Alzheimer’s Editor: The numbers are high – 70,000 people in B.C. are living with Alzheimer’s disease. While the statistics are important, they don’t begin to tell the story of the impact to the person living with the disease and his or her family. My wife, Joan, was diagnosed with the disease in 2010. To say that it is a progressive-degenerative disease is a medical term. The reality is much worse. Over the span of months, weeks and even days, you can see the devastating effects. Happily married for 56 years, our lives have turned into something that I could never have imagined. A loving and caring person has evolved at times into a person I scarcely recognize, often angry, accusatory and confused. Hallucinations are a part of every day. Someone is taking her jewelry, her lipstick, her clothing. Someone else is in the house. She looks in the mirror and sees a reflection that she does not recognize. It’s “that woman,” and she wants her out of here. Caregivers hired to come into the home are sometimes regarded with suspicion and ordered out of the house.

Trips to daycare facilities are resisted but overcome. Tears are frequent. There is fear of the unknown. She will ask, “What’s going to happen to me?” We cannot bring ourselves to answer the question truthfully. It’s estimated 70,000 people in B.C. may have Alzheimer’s, but the disease affects so many more people. Among them are the principal caregiver, children, grandchildren and friends. Without family and friends, the ordeal for the caregiver would be an impossible undertaking. In my case, I am grateful to my daughters, Linda and Lorrie, and their families, and to our many friends who have shown compassion and understanding. Friends mean a lot in times of stress. A simple phone call is all that it takes. If you know of a friend with Alzheimer’s in the family… give a call. It means so much. One in three people know someone with dementia. Who do you know?

Not even the gloomy skies could dampen Surrey school board chair Laurae McNally’s spirit this week as she watched construction crews work on the new Sunnyside Elementary. “I’m the sidewalk superintendent,” she joked Tuesday. “I come by four times a week to see how it’s doing. We’ve been waiting for schools in Surrey for so long, so it’s great to see the progress.”

Crews used two cranes to lift three of five trusses for the school’s gymnasium – the biggest lift for the project at 2828 159 St. Replacement of the old Sunnyside Elementary – located at 15250 28 Ave. – was given the green light by the provincial government in the 2005-’06 school year. However, the process was put on hold after the district was told to build the school as a Neighbourhood Learning Centre with Montessori school components. Then, once again,

Ministry of Finance’s Mark Williams presents a slideshow detailing the upcoming switch to PST.

Confusion in business community despite looming deadline

Questions remain for PST Sarah Massah Staff Reporter

With the deadline for the reimplementation of PST weeks away, more than a few members of the Peninsula’s business community expressed uncertainty about what the change will entail. At an information session hosted by the South Surrey & White Rock Chamber of Commerce at the Rotary Field House Monday, more than 50 members of the business community viewed a PowerPoint slideshow presented by the Ministry of Finance’s Mark Williams and Preet Rai. While there were a number of points addressed during the hour-long presentation, there was

still some confusion from the crowd about the changes set to occur when the province switches back from HST to PST (and GST federally) on April 1. Questions ranged from which products would still be taxable under the “revamped” PST, to concerns about products that straddled the looming deadline. For the bulk of the questions, attendees were directed to the provincial government’s website (www.gov.bc.ca/pst) which would have the details needed. The speakers said they could not address GST questions. While there were some announcements that elicited approval from the crowed – such

as remittance for PST lining up with GST – others, such as the new 12 per cent tax for private sales of vehicles to anyone who is not a direct family member, received an unenthusiastic response. There are still more than 100,000 businesses in the province who need to register for the PST before April 1.

White Rock resident adds local connection to Haiti support

Finding joy in the bleakest of settings Sarah Massah

G

Staff Reporter

ripping her warm Starbucks cup, Laura Mawhinney stepped off the plane and entered an entirely different scene than the one she left in sunny Miami. Despite the short flight, it was as if the White Rock native had entered another world. Only one word came to mind when Mawhinney, 36, described stepping out of the plane in earthquake-ravaged Haiti in 2010: Chaos. “You feel like you’ve just entered into a dream. I can’t even properly articulate what it looks like there. It’s like a bomb went off. Worst of all, I’m afraid if you go back in 10 years, it will be the same,” Mawhinney said. Sitting in her newly opened thrift store – proceeds from which will benefit Haiti relief – it is hard at first to imagine the blonde, bubbly woman in the trenches of a post-disaster country. Even family and friends were skeptical when they heard her plans to go to Haiti in 2010. “Everyone thought I was crazy. But I saw it on television and I’ve never felt a pull to go anywhere in my life like that. I became obsessed and I would ❝Of the 36,000 watch it on television people in this every night. Watching them, I knew I could tent city, we were the only help,” Mawhinney said. A former nurse, nurses.❞ Mawhinney began Laura Mawhinney scouring ways she could lend her medical skills to the relief. Despite finding a group that would help her come to Haiti, Mawhinney admits she knew that she was meant for more than what was initially planned. “I knew in my heart I wasn’t going to team up with that group, but I did it so my parents would say ‘OK, you’re going somewhere safe,’” she said. “But I had this idea in my head that I was going to work under the UN, and work in a medical tent.” While preparing for the flight from Miami to Haiti, Mawhinney’s fellow passengers turned out to be two doctors heading to work at a medical tent – an opportunity she knew she had to seize. She quickly made her move and sat down beside the doctor, explaining her story and her desire to work alongside doctors as a nurse. Despite initial reservations, the doctors eventually agreed to bring Mawhinney – and her friend and fellow nurse, Aaron, with whom she had connected with online –along with them. “Before I knew it, we were being ushered into their van and then the crazy part happened. My friend, Sarah, who was the co-ordinator of relief efforts at the time,

Below, Mawhinney works in her new Marine Drive thrift shop, Project Aftershock. told us that two people had pulled out at the last minute, and of the 36,000 people in this tent city, we were the only nurses,” Mawhinney said. “I got goosebumps.” Immediately, Mawhinney was thrown into a world full of disease, pain and death. Each day would bring another story of someone who had lost everything, with little hope of getting anything back. Yet, despite all that had happened, Mawhinney found there was still a light that shone from the people of Haiti. “They have so much resilience. They find joy in the bleakest of circumstances. While I was there, I saw a wedding. A wedding in the midst of all the chaos. I couldn’t believe it,” she said. One girl in particular struck a chord for Mawhinney. Everyday, the little girl, who was no older than 11, came by to visit Mawhinney, who

would stock her up with medical supplies for her foot, which was nearly severed after the roof of her house collapsed on her while she was eating breakfast. On Mawhinney’s last day, she offered the girl adult vitamins for her parents, not knowing that both had perished in the earthquake. “I hadn’t cried at all, but when I offered the vitamins and she told me both her mother and father had died when the roof collapsed, I couldn’t hold it in any longer. She was the only one who had survived and she had been stuck there for five or six days, with the bodies of her mother, father and grandfather buried around her,” Mawhinney said. “But she was telling me this so calmly and I had to stop because I didn’t want to make it worse for her. “When we were saying goodbye, she told › see page 12

1 DAY ONLY EXCLUSIVE EVENT!! Saturday, January 19 Contributed photo

Laura Mawhinney (right) with a particularly memorable patient during her 2010 trip to Haiti.

Aid still needed › from page 11 me she wanted to be a nurse like me, so I gave her my stethoscope.” ••• Once she had returned from her trip, Mawhinney found it difficult to make the transition back to a normal life in White Rock, all the while knowing there was still work to be done. Finally, months after her return, after a series of setbacks, Mawhinney reached her breaking point. Going to the beach by her home, she stepped out onto the sand and experienced a moment of clarity. “I’m standing there, and everyone always talks about God’s audible voice, but I never understood that, but then I felt the strongest peace come over me and say, ‘That’s OK, because you’re going to open a thrift store,’” Mawhinney said. Soon after making the announcement to family and friends of her goal, Mawhinney began setting the wheels in motion for her latest endeavour, Project Aftershock, a thrift store benefitting the people of Haiti. Within a week of her decision, Mawhinney had found a location and donations began pouring in. Even finding the spot for the store was fate, Mawhinney explained. “I was speaking to the owner of this store on the waterfront by my house and she told me that she was leaving. I called and got the place and the landlord gave me two weeks free

rent and then people just starting bring in clothing, my friends started painting and I was visited by this guy – who I call my night angel – who offered to do all the signage and the awning for free. “Just for it all to fall into place, I know that God’s in it. I’ve never had anything work like that. He never said it was going to be easy, but He’ll provide you with the resources you need,” Mawhinney said. The store held its grand opening Jan. 5, with Mawhinney’s parents at the helm while she was in Haiti. Now that she’s back, Mawhinney is once again beginning the process of preparing for her next trip. Partial proceeds from items sold at the store will benefit Haitians in need. While she admits her next trip is a few months away, Mawhinney is sending out the call to the public for donations, including basic medicines, clothes and medical supplies, such as gauze and bandaids. “Basic things like Polysporin can save a person’s life,” she said. “I’m just one person, but I am lucky enough to see the medicine go from my bag to being handed out to the people who need it. That’s a gift.” Project Aftershock is located at 15545 Marine Dr. For more information on Mawhinney or Project Aftershock, go to www. projectaftershock.org or call 604-536-7283.

patients during the whole delivery process. Prior to the renovations of the maternity unit there were about 600-700 babies born each year at Peace Arch Hospital. Now that the unit has been renovated, we have increased our numbers 30 per cent to about 1,100 babies born each year. The unit has the same number of beds as before the renovation. There are more young families living in the community which has meant more babies at PAH. There are volunteers who prepare information packages for families. These are given to families when they leave the hospital. Volunteers still knit hats for the newborns. The first newborn of the year is given a layette, which is handmade by one of our members. The mom is given a dozen roses. The baby is given a stuffed bear and also a blanket. Please come and see our new bulletin board in the lobby of the hospital. It is located in the hall from the foundation office. The auxiliary can now post events in an electronic form which will be on the TV screen.

Friday, Jan. 18 - Thursday, Jan. 24

The productivity and ecological importance of salt marshes took a long time to be recognized, and even today, they are often disregarded. People smell the mud, look at the brown grass, and see little on the surface. Yet this habitat is a nursery for so many species that power the food chain. Microscopic plankton feed larvae, crabs, worms, and shrimp, that grow to feed forage fish and birds, salmon, porpoises and whales. Completely different types of marshland prevail at the mouth of the Fraser, where the freshwater influence is strong. When the Fraser delta was historically dyked and drained, only the shores of Boundary Bay retained a moderately large stretch of salt marsh. Because their value often goes unrecognized, salt marshes remain in our landscape almost as an afterthought. Anne Murray, the author of two nature books available in local book stores, writes monthly in the Peace Arch News – www. natureguidesbc.com

Why Wait…

• FSA tests are expensive and waste money at a time when cuts are being made. • FSA tests do not help students learn or teachers teach. • FSA tests take valuable time away from more meaningful learning. • The data does not provide real help to students, parents, or schools. • The results are misused to rank schools and promote privatization. Teachers in Surrey recommend that parents write a letter to your school principal requesting that your child be exempted from the FSA. To learn more about your child’s progress and the real assessments done in the classroom, talk to her or his teacher.

Strong support for firefighters’ fundraiser

Tree chip raises $6,600 White Rock firefighters’ annual charity tree-chipping was another brisk event, with more than 480 people dropping by with their Christmas evergreens. Firefighter Mike Stark said the event, held Jan. 6 in the Centennial Arena parking lot, went off without a hitch – no one waited more than 40 seconds to drop off their tree, and donations topped 2011 by at least 20 per cent. The $6,600-plus will be distributed

between the burn fund and local charities, Stark said. “White Rock Firefighters (Local 2407)  would like to thank Maple Leaf Disposal, Tall Timber Tree Service and the Vancouver Land Fill for donating all services and equipment associated with this event,” he added. Stark said firefighters will continue to organize the annual tree-chipping  as long as public support for the event remains strong. It has been running for 15 years.

Allan Dann recalls decades spent at historic 176 Street electronics store

Iconic Cloverdale businessman signs off 1932. Originally a Royal Bank, and then a government liquor store, the two-storey, wood-frame building had accommodations for the bank manager upstairs. The family – Ernie, mom, and young Allan, moved in. He grew up in downtown Cloverdale, and went to school at what was then Surrey’s only high school, which was later named after Lord Tweedsmuir. He forged many fond memories along the way. “Cloverdale was a great place to grow up – any small town is. You knew everybody.” There was a blacksmith’s across the street to the south – “I was always over there, because it was interesting. I came back with new words.” By the time Dann was in high school, he was working on weekends wiring barns and chicken houses. For fun, he and his pals would hop the Interurban to Langley to go to the movies. It was 10 cents one way. They’d walk the three miles home. There was a big hall at the corner of 57 Avenue and 176A Street that hosted dances. The boys nervously asked the girls to dance. If you took the same girl out twice, he says, the whole town

he sign at Dann’s Electronics, one of Cloverdale’s most recognizable symbols, came down last Thursday, and with it, Surrey’s longest-serving businessman is getting ready to call it a day. The glorious neon sign with swooping red letters – a fixture above the 5657 176 St. storefront since the 1950s – is a rental. And at 88, owner and operator Allan Dann says it’s time to retire. He put the heritage building up for sale in September. The new owner is an antiques dealer expanding out of Fort Langley. The eclectic shop, graced with a high-ceilinged showroom, along with a bank vault that’s used as a storeroom, was filled with vintage and new flatscreen TVs, stereos, and, until recently, home appliances. There was a section devoted to vacuum parts and sale, plus bike sales and repairs, too. Entering Dann’s Electronics is like stepping back in time, making it a popular back drop for film and TV productions, most recently an episode of the sci-fi cult series, Fringe. The director didn’t change a thing, and even persuaded Dann to appear in a scene. His dad, Ernie, started a bicycle repair business in 1921, soon moving to Cloverdale, where he set up

Allan Dann is closing the doors of his iconic Dann’s Electronics store in Cloverdale after several decades. shop on the Pacific Highway in what was then the centre of Surrey. The business – originally called Ernest H. Dann – branched out into wiring homes, businesses and farms for electricity.

“The old joke was that dad got into bicycles and then he got into wiring,” remembers Dann, explaining how Ernie needed a little extra help, so he asked his wife to look after the books and the front end.

“She said, ‘Sure, OK,’ so I started here. I was in a cradle, so I started young,” Dann chuckles. “And no minimum wage.” The business has been in the same 176 Street location since

found three-quarters of B.C.’s more than 200 bands had highrisk water or sewer systems. And such problems are not just limited to remote rural reserves. Despite being on the border of both Surrey and White Rock, the Semiahmoo First Nation receives water from neither – band members are on a permanent boilwater advisory and some of their aging septic fields are failing. Meanwhile, Daykin notes the Kwantlen First Nation wants to hook up to water from both the City of Maple Ridge and Langley Township to serve a bandproposed development east of downtown Maple Ridge. “We’ve got investments in water lines, pumps, chlorination stations, we’ve got people testing water,” Daykin said. “It’s not as simple as hooking up a pipe to a new pipe and turning the tap on.” Some Metro directors are uncomfortable they might be accused of opposing water upgrades for First Nations. But Daykin said most agree they must pursue a fair deal on behalf of civic taxpayers. Some First Nations are also critical of the drinking water legislation, arguing it oversteps their aboriginal or treaty rights over their land.

Many new immigrants choose to come to Canada for its abundant career opportunities; yet far too many of these new immigrants are struggling to find stable full time jobs as Canadian employees fail to recognize even their top-end foreign accreditations. The temporary solution becomes seeking ‘survival jobs’ as security guards or store clerks while awaiting other job opportunities to come along. There is a better solution than working long hours in survival jobs. Brighton College recognizes the challenges new immigrants face and the cost of returning to school for long periods of time. It’s highly specialized programs help numerous people get rid of their survival jobs and dive back into their professional industries. For example, foreign architects are able to complete short programs updating their technical skills and knowledge on Canadian building codes, and foreign accountants are able to do the same by updating their accounting backgrounds to include Canadian taxation foundations. With such highly focused and targeted programs, students can get Canadian-recognized certification in less time and increase their chances of obtaining employment shortly after graduation. A huge advantage Brighton College has is its hands-on work experience opportunities included in its curriculum that gives students real Canadian work experience.

Former Peninsula nurse attends Golden Globes

Handmade hobby leads to Hollywood Sarah Massah

S

Staff Reporter

unday night’s award ceremony provided a former White Rock nurse with the golden opportunity to share her products – and steal a kiss. Tara Rex, a former Ashcroft, B.C. resident and “mom-preneur,” made the trip to Beverly Hills from her home in Denver, Colo. to help hand out her handmade cup cozies to Hollywood’s biggest names at the Golden Globe’s pre-show. This is the second year in a row that Rex’s homemade items have made their way into the Golden Globe’s swag bag, but the first time she has been there in person to hand them out. “It was just a whirlwind,” Rex said from her home Monday morning. “It was amazing to be invited to the pre-show and help at the gifting lounge. With The Artisan Group we were able to ❝If there’s a communicate who we are door that’s and what we do.” One moment that really open – an stood out for Rex – a kiss opportunity – from Criminal Minds star you’ve got to Shemar Moore. “I had to take a second go through.❞ there. He’s got very Tara Rex soft lips,” she laughed, noting her cup cozies made there way into the bags of notable names like actors Nicole Kidman and Kerry Washington. It’s been a life-changing experience for Rex, who was a nurse at Peace Arch Hospital 11 years ago, when she decided to pursue her passion for sewing in order to take care of her sons at home. While doing interviews with other local artisans on her blog (www.taradaramadeit. com), an interviewee revealed her items would be featured in goodie bags for the Oscars. Rex seized the opportunity and quickly contacted The Artisan Group, who connects artisans with Hollywood events, and was one of 30 artisans to be approved for the Golden Globe goodie bags in 2012. “From there it just skyrocketed. This year, I was able to participate physically with the Golden Globes and I’ve been invited to the Emmy’s,” Rex said. “It definitely helps with sales, but what’s really important is that the local press catapults local artisans into the spotlight.” As for what the future holds, Rex reveals she will be working on covers for the new

mini iPad, as well as a business venture that she is keeping under wraps for the time being. While she admits that does miss her hometown in B.C., looking back at her beginnings, she said she is happy for how her business has grown. “I’ve worked hard and I feel that if there’s a door that’s open – an opportunity – you’ve got to go through. That’s what I’ve chosen to do.” For more information, visit www. taradaramadeit.com or taradara.etsy.com

› from page 29 a lot. We spoke about Mendelssohn, who we both agreed was not played enough,” Hagen said. When Hagen received a call from Chalifour before the new year, asking for directions to Vancouver Island, she seized the opportunity to invite him to perform. “I tempted him by saying that the weather is always beautiful in February, so he didn’t have to feel bad about leaving L.A.,” she laughed. The two are set to play Stravinsky’s Suite Italienne, an arrangement of several movements from his ballet Pulcinelle, Mozart’s haunting Sonata K.304, which is played in minor key, creating a “fragile, and very delicate sound” and of course, Hagen’s favourite, Mendelssohn’s Sonata in F major. “There is something very precious about this program,” Hagen said. “And having an artist of Martin’s calibre at this performance, I just don’t think people understand the rarity of that. For him to come here is amazing. He’s such an incredible talent and so personable. People will feel like they can talk to him and that’s a rare treat.” With only other performance – March 14, featuring cellist Ariel Barnes – Hagen is already in the process of planning the next year, especially after receiving such a warm welcome. “People respond in such a familiar way after a while. Usually with a series, there are about five different ensembles, but because I am in every concert, people feel like they know me and they do,” she said. “They’re more willing to share their feelings and it creates a beautiful friendship.” Tickets ($22.50) for the Feb. 7 show are available at the Surrey Arts Centre Box Office, 13750 88 Ave., Tuesday-Sunday, 12-5 p.m. and until 7 p.m. on Thursdays, and online at https://tickets. surrey.ca For more information on the series, visit www.surrey.ca/arts

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

WRCA, Tweedsmuir, Southridge, Elgin advance

RCMP title still up for grabs Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

A rematch of last year’s Surrey RCMP Basketball Classic final got one day closer to reality Tuesday, after both White Rock Christian Academy and the defending champion Tamanawis Wildcats advanced past the Round of 16. In total, eight teams are still in contention at the annual all-Surrey senior boys hoops tournament, which is set to wrap up Saturday. The WRCA Warriors, the BC AAA No. 4-ranked team and winners of 10 of the last 14 RCMP titles, have not won the tournament since 2010, and lost last year by a single basket in overtime. “We’re hoping to avenge that loss,” said WRCA coach Dale Shury, prior to his team’s 78-54 win over Fraser Heights Tuesday afternoon at Southridge. “I always call this tournament the unofficial Surrey (playoff) championship, so it’s important. “We’re coming off a good week, so we’re feeling pretty good about ourselves.” Last week, WRCA won the prestigious Legal Beagle Tournament in Coquitlam, while also earning a win in league play over Elgin Park. In addition to WRCA and Tamanawis – who knocked off Sullivan Heights 91-43 Tuesday – other teams advancing through to RCMP quarter-finals after Tuesday victories were Southridge, who beat Pacific Academy 73-61; Enver Creek, 80-61 over the Semiahmoo Totems; North Surrey, who beat Princess Margaret handily 87-38; Cloverdale’s Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers, who won 89-53 versus Queen Elizabeth; Elgin Park, with a 70-61 win over Fleetwood Park; and Panorama Ridge, who beat

Earl Marriott 78-48. Quarter-final action hit the court Wednesday after press deadline, with WRCA taking on South Surrer rivals Southridge; Enver Creek playing North Surrey; Tweedsmuir facing off against Panorama and Elgin Park playing Tamanawis. Games continue today and Friday, with the final set for 7:45 p.m. Saturday at Enver Creek Secondary. The tournament began Sunday with a qualifying round, with winners moving into Tuesday’s main draw and losers being bounced into the B Pool. Frank Hurt, Surrey Christian, L.A. Matheson, Clayton Height, Kwantlen Park and Johnston Heights were vying for a B division title, but games were played Wednesday after deadline. The B tournament wraps up today (Thursday).

Junior boys In the junior boys RCMP tournament, four teams are left in contention for the championship – Semiahmoo, Fleetwood Park, Lord Tweedsmuir and Tamanawis. Semiahmoo, which was set to play Fleetwood Wednedsay in semifinal action, advanced into the final four after a quarter-final win Tuesday over Panorama Ridge, while Fleetwood advanced after beating White Rock Christian. On the other side of the bracket, Tweedsmuir beat Enver Creek Tuesday to advance, while their semifinal-round opponent, Tamanawis, beat North Surrey in quarter-final action. Today (Thursday), the fifth- and sixth-place games will be played at Panorama Ridge, while the final game will be played at noon Saturday at Enver Creek.

Peninsula pair up in running for athlete-of-year awards

Girard, Svensson nominated A pair of South Surrey residents are in the running for a BC Sport Community award, after finalists were announced by ViaSport last week. ViaSport, formerly known as the BC Sport Agency, will host its annual Athlete of the Year Awards gala, honouring the province’s best amateur coaches, players and officials, March 7 at the River Rock Show Theatre in Richmond. And among those in the running are White Rock weightlifter Christine Girard, who is nominated for senior female athlete of the year, and South Surrey golfer Adam Svensson, who is one of three nominated for junior male athlete of the year. Girard had a remarkable 2012, highlighted by a bronze medal at the Summer Olympics in London – her achievement marked the first medal by any Canadian women in the sport. Also nominated in her category is fellow Olympian Christine Sinclair, who led Canada to a bronze medal in women’s soccer, and ski-cross athlete Marielle Thompson of Whistler.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO:

Registration fee of $50 is required Uniform deposit fee of $50 due on registration day or training day. File photos

Christine Girard (left) and Adam Svensson are among the nominees for athlete-of-the-year awards at a ViaSport event in March. Svensson, an Earl Marriott Secondary grad who earned a golf scholarship to the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, won a Canadian Junior Boys Championship last year in Nova Scotia, shooting a final round of 64 to knock off the defending champion. The South Surrey resident has had an impressive amateur career, having previously won Canadian juvenile, B.C. junior and world junior titles.

Other nominees in Svensson’s category are junior hockey player Sam Reinhart and North Vancouver tennis star Filip Peliwo. Other Surrey nominees at the March 7 awards include gymnast Shallon Olsen (junior female athlete of the year); judo champ Sanda Hewson (master athlete of the year), and lacrosse official Terry Mosdell (official of the year). – Nick Greenizan

BC Scotties championship wraps Sunday

Defending champs unbeaten Rick Kupchuk Black Press

The defending champions remain the only unbeaten team at the BC Scotties, and seem to get stronger as the provincial women’s curling championship progresses. Kelly Scott of Kelowna stole six points in three ends, and went on to a 10-1 triumph Tuesday evening over Kirsten Fox of the Royal City Curling Club in New Westminster. Scott improved to 4-0 (wonlost) and leads the 10-team competition after four of nine draws. Fox went into the match knowing a win would vault her group

into a share of the Scotties lead, but fell behind 8-0 after just five ends. Patti Knezevic of Prince George and Marla Mallett, of the host Cloverdale Curling Club, remain a game back of Scott after their wins in Draw 4 Tuesday evening. Knezevic scored one in the 10th to edge Allison MacInnes of Abbotsford 8-7, while Mallett handled Roberta Kuhn of Vernon 9-3. Both winners improved to 3-1. Fox, MacInnes and Marilou Richter of the Royal City club are all tied for fourth at 2-2. Richter edged Simone Brosseau of Juan de Fuca 6-5.

In the only other match of Draw 4, Lori Olsen of Royal City got her first win, defeating Simone Groundwater of Williams Lake 7-5. The top four teams will advance to the playoff round Friday through Sunday. The Cloverdale club is hosting the BC Scotties for the second time in three years. “We have a great facility and we have excellent ice,” said club manager Judy MacKinnon. “I think hosting the event in 2011 put the Cloverdale Curling Club on the curling fan and curler map, so we’re happy to have the Scotties return.”

Noble wins Sea spiel A visiting team from Qualicum Beach emerged victorious at Peace Arch Curling Club’s annual Bye the Sea ladies bonspiel last week, edging a rink from Maple Ridge’s Golden Ears Winter Club 7-3 in the championship game. The Qualicum rink – skipped by Lynne Noble and including third Donna Langlands, second Lorraine Gagnon and lead Victoria Murphy – was one of 10 teams from out of town taking part in the 16-team draw, with the other six from Peace Arch. Third-place was won by a Langley rink skipped by Gwen Clark. Many of the teams that took part in the event, which ran from Jan. 11-13, will also compete at the provincial senior ladies playdowns, as well as the “Nifty Fifty” bonspiel which is being hosted by PACC from March 17-20. Off the ice, the Bye the Sea spiel also included a luncheon for all 16 teams, and was highlighted by a Dan Ferguson photos performance by the Ladies of the Top, Mission second Vicki Gould releases a rock during a match Night – a group of women from against Qualicum Sunday. Above, Qualicum skip Lynne Noble PACC’s evening league. - Nick Greenizan watches teammate Victoria Murphy sweep a rock home.

The Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association is welcoming the new year with a slate of big events. The first will take place on Feb. 6 at the Delta Burnaby Hotel and Conference Centre. The Legends of Housing event will include a panel of residential construction industry leaders including David Podmore of Concert Properties, Peeter Wesick of Wesgroup and Ward McAllister of Ledingham McAllister discussing where they think the housing industry is going and their experiences in the industry, followed by a question and answer session. The session will be moderated by urban design specialist Bob Ransford of Counterpoint Communications. The GVHBA will also announce the finalists for the 2013 Ovation Awards at the event, which is also the first dinner meeting of the year. Tickets can be purchased on the GVHBA website until Feb. 4. The next big event in the GVHBA calendar is the BC Home and Garden Show on Feb. 20 to 24. The association hosts the GVHBA Pro Renovation + Design Centre every year, showcasing before and after photos of professional renovations by member companies. You are also able to book a free consultation with a renovation or design professional. The event will take place at BC Place, with tickets available on the day or at www.bchomeandgardenshow.com. While you’re there, you can see photos of the finalists for the Ovation

Awards, and cast your vote for the People’s Choice Award, which will be handed out for the first time this year. The ceremony will take place in April. The show features more than 425 local experts in all aspects of home ownership, from renovation to organization, appearances by HGTV celebrities like Sarah Daniels of Urban Suburban and tons of tips for outdoor living and gardening. The third big event of the next few months is the annual First-Time Home Buyer Seminar on March 19 at the Bell Performing Arts Centre in Surrey. The seminar is the largest of its kind in North America and is always popular. Admission is free, though preregistration is required on the GVHBA website and attendees are asked to bring an item for the Surrey Food Bank. “Our experts will help first-time buyers consider all available options and important issues before they take that critical first step onto the property ladder,” says GVHBA CEO Bob de Wit. “Real estate continues to be a hot topic in this region, so seminar attendance is expected to be as many or greater than the 750 young people who attended last year’s event.” The seminar will cover a wide range of topics, including

ADVERTISE in the LARGEST OUTDOOR PUBLICATION IN BC The 2013-2015 BC Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis

Middleton, Vera nee Williams was born in Rotherham, England in 1921. As a young woman Vera aspired to a career in nursing, but the outbreak of WW2 necessitated a change of plans and she worked for the Government in support of the war effort. During the war Vera met Ken Middleton, a RAF officer, and they were married in 1942. In 1952 Vera and Ken immigrated to Canada to reside in New Westminster while Ken completed his medical internship at the Royal Columbian Hospital. The next year they welcomed their first child Jan. Their second daughter, Evlyn Margaret was born in1956, after Ken and Vera had moved to White Rock. They remained White Rock residents for their entire lives. While Ken had a busy medical practice, Vera devoted her time to her family, friends, and a variety of volunteer and philanthropic organizations including the Peace Arch Hospital Women’s Auxiliary and PEO. She and Ken were founding members of the White Rock Baptist Church. A loving and gracious lady to the end, Vera always had time to lend a hand to those who were not well, or just needed a friend. She touched many lives. Vera and Ken had a close friendship with many, including the MacKenzies, the Splits/Thomas’, the Gahagans and the Gards. While many of the senior family members have now passed on, the grown children and grandchildren of these families remain close to this day. Vera lost her beloved Ken in 1993 after a marriage of over 50 years. However, she continued to live independently until 2011 and remained active with her family, church, community and friends. Vera passed away peacefully on December 11, 2012 surrounded by loving family members. As per her wishes a quiet celebration of Vera’s life was held later that month attended by immediate family. Vera’s life was full, happy and highlighted by graciousness and giving. She will be greatly missed by her family and her many friends. Vera was predeceased by her husband Ken and is survived by her two daughters Jan Roberts (Warren), Evlyn Sluis (Will), her grand-children Brent, Carly and Wesley and great grand-daughter Serena.

OBITUARIES

Rod (Roderick) Charles Pringle Born in Vancouver, BC, February 26, 1929. Rod passed away in Victoria, January 3, 2013 in the loving presence of his daughter and grandchildren, who were greatly supported by his nephew Dan. Rod is survived by his much loved wife Colleen, son Rod, daughter Kealey and grandchildren Emerald and Kelt. He will also be missed by his sister-in-law Mary, nephews Dan (Jill, Erin and Annie) and Eric (Sandy and Owen) and niece Lisa Kerr (Doug, Geoff and Iain). He was, and taught others to be: kind, loving, compassionate, gentle, sweet, accepting, forgiving, patient, honourable, generous, selfless, respectful, true, humble, stoic, stalwart, polite, passionate, determined, faithful, dependable, and constant. Rod loved to spend time with his family and we loved being with him. He had many lifetime friendships. Rod had a quiet, charming, clever wit. He enjoyed gardening, sailing, playing bridge and being outdoors. Rod loved being in the woods and on the coast, especially in any boat. He built a nutshell pram (row/sail boat). Rod lived with his mother, father and brother Geoff (predeceased) in Vancouver and White Rock. He attended schools in Vancouver, White Rock and New Westminster. Rod worked for the BC Forest Service and while stationed in Squirrel Cove, courted the local Lund school teacher. Rod and Colleen (nee Kealey) married in 1952 (60 years). They lived in Squirrel Cove, Alert Bay, Vancouver, Nanaimo, Britannia Beach, Burnaby, Vernon, Sidney and Victoria. Rod was Class President of the UBC BSF Class of 1957. Rod received his Registered Professional Forester status in 1970, retired in 1988 and was awarded a lifetime membership for his contribution to the forestry profession. Rod worked for several forestry companies, as well as his own consulting firm, in various places in BC, including Vancouver, Nanaimo, Britannia Beach and Vernon. After retirement and the family grown, Colleen and Rod left the family home on the lake in Vernon and moved to Sidney where Rod could be by the salt chuck again and close to his grandkids. Rod was a person who believed in being involved in the community. Notably, he was a School Board Trustee in Vernon, the president of the BC Schizophrenia Society, and a councillor with the Association of BC Forest Professionals. Rod and Colleen were also members of a Unitarian Fellowship in Vernon. Rod wrote, “I leave with gratitude for my life, loved ones and friends”. The family sends much gratitude to the VIHA paramedics and the nurses in the Intensive Care Unit at the Royal Jubilee Hospital. A service will be held in the spring. Donations can be made to the Forestry Class of 57, University of British Columbia Alumni Fund. Condolences can be given at earthsoption.com.
