The U.S. government’s failure to avoid sequestration last Friday will mean layoffs of American border guards and longer waits into the country.

Reduced staffing expected to take toll at lineups

U.S. economy bites border travellers Jeff Nagel Black Press

Border crossings that are often jammed with shoppers heading south may soon get even more congested as the U.S. government is forced to lay off thousands of border employees. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has begun cutting employee hours and is slated to furlough 5,000 more staff by early April, after Congress and President Barack Obama failed to reach a comprehensive deal by March 1 to reduce federal spending, triggering automatic spending cuts. The initial cuts at Customs and Border Protection (CBP) are already resulting in reports of longer processing lines at some U.S. airports. CBP officials predict waits of up to 50 per cent longer at major airports – four hours or longer at peak times – and a doubling of peak waits to five hours or more at the busiest land crossings. “Travellers should adjust their trip itineraries to account for unexpected delays,” the department warned in a statement. The longest southbound lines at Lower Mainland crossings are weekend mornings, and they could get much longer because the use of overtime is now banned.

Buyers wary Most Metro Vancouver and Fraser Valley residents regularly cross the border to shop in the U.S., according to a recent poll. Nearly three-quarters of respondents to the Insights West poll (www.insightswest. ca) said they drove south to shop in the last year, and many are making frequent forays. On average, those polled drove to the U.S. more than five times in 2012, about half had crossed at least three times and 15 per cent said they’d crossed 13 times or more. Lower prices were cited by 85 per cent, and more than a third of those polled said they have a U.S. mailbox for ordered goods. About 70 per cent agreed that Canadians shopping in the U.S. hurts our economy, and about half said it may mean job losses here. The online survey of 1,077 adults was conducted Jan. 30 to Feb. 3.

“They hold shifts over longer or call shifts in earlier to keep as many lines open as possible – that won’t be happening,” said Ken Oplinger,

president of the Bellingham/Whatcom Chamber of Commerce. “We’re thinking it could add an extra 15 to 30 minutes onto the regular lines.” Nexus card holders should continue to get speedy clearance, but new applicants face longer approval times due to an expected surge in demand. It’s hoped the arbitrary across-the-board cuts will be unpalatable to both Republicans and Democrats, spurring them to reach a deal before border slowdowns cause serious economic damage. “If this goes on into the summer, that’s when we’re really going to have an issue,” Oplinger said. “On a summer weekend we can get two- to three-hour lineups and we could be adding 45 minutes to an hour on top of that at those peak times.” One factor that might slow cross-border shopping is the recent slide of the loonie. The dollar is down to around 97 cents U.S., and Oplinger said a further drop to below 95 cents may begin to reduce the number of shoppers from Canada. › see page 4

It’s been three months since a 53-year-old man was arrested after two women were struck while jogging in a South Surrey crosswalk, and police say it may be a few more before any charge is laid. Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet told Peace Arch News this week that investigators “are still going through all the legal requirements and judicial authorizations” needed to forward charge recommendations to the Crown. “The investigator, he expects Nola Carson that charges will be laid for hitand-run causing bodily harm, but at this point in time, charges have not been officially laid and we expect this process to happen over the next few months,” Paquet Shelley Lammers said Tuesday. Runners Shelley Lammers and Nola Carlson were hit just before 8 p.m. Dec. 3, as they jogged across 152 Street at 32 Avenue. A trafficcamera recorded the impact and – about 25 seconds later – a figure on foot approach the women and lean over them before rapidly departing. Lammers suffered a collapsed lung, two broken vertebrae, a lacerated liver, a concussion and fractured ribs. Carlson’s injuries included a broken nose and cheek. Dec. 6, police announced the arrest of a Surrey man and seizure of a BMW X1. A May 13 court date had been announced but, Paquet said, no appearances are scheduled.

riding, speaks volumes. The contents of the leaked memo sparked outrage from some representatives of ethnic groups. This is a big deal in Surrey. Vikram Bajwa, who ran for mayor in Surrey in 2011, said that a large number of IndoCanadian BC Liberals met over the weekend and want the premier to resign, and also want the Times of India Film Awards cancelled. Many people from various ethnic groups feel patronized by the wording in the memo, and Bajwa’s concerns speak to that. In addition to all these challenges, the BC Liberals face some tough sledding in the Surrey ridings because of the lack of attention to needed services in this fast-growing city, notably the levels of service in education and health. While the provincial government has committed funding for new schools and hospital expansion, this city remains badly under-served in basic social services. Waits at emergency rooms are the longest in the province, and there are more overcrowded schools here than anywhere else. Then there is the toll on the new Port Mann Bridge and the continued lack of transit, including no access from Surrey to the only bus service that goes over the new bridge. This added burden to Surrey families’ budgets will be a key factor in the May 14 election. Frank Bucholtz writes Thursdays for the Peace Arch News. He is the editor of the Langley Times.

Zoning application filed for 35 residential units with ground-floor commercial space

Ocean Beach site up for redevelopment Alex Browne Staff Reporter

The evolution of the historic Ocean Beach Hotel property on White Rock’s waterfront continues with announcement of a public information meeting for a plan to redevelop the site. The meeting, called for Wednesday, March 13 at 5:30 p.m. in the gallery room at White Rock Community Centre (15154 Russell Ave.) will outline details of the proposal, which would require a zoning amendment. The announcement follows on the heels of confirmation from the Joseph Richard Group – operator of the Town Hall chain of pubs in Surrey, Langley and Coquitlam

– that, while it has purchased the former Ocean Beach Club business in the hotel, the Veltri family continues to own the building. The group is rebranding the venue as the Hemingway Waterfront Public House, and plans to soft-open the establishment before the end of this month. Some 45 employees have been recruited locally to staff the venue. Group principals Ryan Moreno and Andre Bourque said in a recent interview that purchasing the entire hotel had originally been on the table, but they opted to take on the lounge venue only. “They wanted us to take the hotel,” Moreno said. “Maybe at some point down the road we would consider that.”

The new development proposal for the site, 14989 and 14995 Marine Drive and 14990 Victoria Ave., is for a four-storey building with four ground-level commercial units and 35 residential units above. Plans call for 45 below-ground parking stalls. The building, originally called the Feedham Block when it was built in 1930, was the site of the Blue Moon Dance pavilion in the 1930s and early 1940s, before being turned into the Cloninger Hotel in 1943. It was rechristened the Ocean Beach Hotel in 1950 and has changed hands several times since. Co-owner Tony Veltri Sr. would not say what timeline is planned for redevelopment of the property, but confirmed a zoning

application is being filed to keep the option open. The Hemingway Public House plans would not be immediately impacted, he said. “They got a long lease,” he said, before declining further comment. White Rock development services director Paul Stanton said that, while the zoning amendment application does not include a timeline, there is “a two-year ticking clock on a development application,” provided it is approved by council. He said, however, that extensions can be granted if a development is delayed by such considerations as renegotiating financing or meeting requirements for a building permit.

TransLink releases findings

No one answers tender

Pier delay risks grant

Rapid-bus line eyed in south

Sarah Massah Staff Reporter

Jeff Nagel Black Press

New rapid-transit studies released by TransLink have handed more ammunition to backers of SkyTrain technology through Surrey to Langley. A SkyTrain line running above Fraser Highway from Surrey City Centre to Langley, coupled with Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) lines running south to White Rock on King George Boulevard and east to Guildford on 104 Avenue is the most expensive of four shortlisted options, at $2.22 billion, but TransLink found it delivers the most transportation benefits and by far the highest ridership. It would also be the fastest, carrying passengers from Langley to Surrey Central station in just 22 minutes, compared to 29 or 30 minutes for the other three options. Surrey council has lobbied for a network of ground-level light rail (LRT) lines, rather than BRT or elevated SkyTrain, arguing LRT would be a better fit for the city’s neighbourhoods. TransLink previously studied a dozen different technology permutations in Surrey before winnowing them to the four front runners. The option closest to the city’s preference would run light rail trains on all three corridors radiating from downtown Surrey, with BRT rapid buses running on the southern section of King George from Newton to White Rock, as light rail isn’t considered justifiable there. At $2.18 billion, that would be only slightly cheaper than the SkyTrain/BRT option, but is estimated to attract only half the new transit riders as SkyTrain because light rail trains run more slowly and less reliably at street level with traffic. Surrey transit advocate Paul Hillsdon, who previously backed light rail, now prefers the SkyTrain option (with BRT running to Guildford, Newton and White Rock), adding it clearly outperforms LRT at virtually the same cost. “Based on the cost, there seems to be very little benefit to pursuing the light-rail system as the city has advocated,” Hillsdon said. He added TransLink may have inflated the light-rail costs somewhat compared to systems built elsewhere, but he accepts the findings. “There are huge travel-time savings with SkyTrain and double the ridership, for basically the exact same price.”

Transit options released by TransLink this week include (top, left to right) Bus Rapid Transit, Light-Rail Transit and SkyTrain. Above, a map indicates a combination of LRT and BRT lines.

A delay in the repair of White Rock pier could cost the city $115,000 in federal funding. During last week’s council meeting, director of engineering and municipal operations Greg St. Louis explained that discovery of more work – and a lack of response from contractors – had led to the delay of the pier repairs, pushing them past the funding deadline for a federal grant from the Community Infrastructure Improvement fund. The funding was slated to pay for 50 per cent of the initial cost, which was estimated at $230,600 in 2010, as long as work was completed by March 31, 2013. However, the setbacks not only pushed the estimated cost to $405,000, it also delayed the completion date of the project to May 17, 2013 – past the grant deadline. St. Louis told council the city applied for an extension and is awaiting a response. The pier repairs stem from an initial 2010 inspection which found 11 timber piles that needed to be replaced. However, it was later discovered that an additional five piles would need to be replaced. The project was tendered to begin in January with a finish date of the end of this month, however there were no respondents, St. Louis said. “Unfortunately, we didn’t get any of the contractors to close the project,” St. Louis said. “The rationale the contractors used was that they’re busy trying to complete work prior to Feb. 28 before there are fishery closures.” The project was then retendered to begin February 2013, with the new completion date of May 17. Only one contractor – Fraser River Pile and Dredge (GP) Inc. – responded, noting that instead of replacing the 16 piles, they would need to wedge the existing posts between two stabilizing piles, bringing the total number of posts required for the project to 32. The pier is to be closed for a maximum of 45 days, however the city is aiming for 20-30 days. Council voted unanimously to begin the work.

Vehicle tears up South Surrey yard

Lawn damage ‘upsetting’ Sarah Massah Staff Reporter

A longtime Crescent Park resident is asking for help finding the individual who drove up on the grass in front of her property, causing extensive damage, including deep tread marks. Theresa Gee, who has been living at her home on Woodcrest Drive for more than 15 years, said this is the first time something like this has happened to her – but not the first incident in the neighbourhood. “Two years ago when our neighbours were selling their home, someone trashed their lawn. Our neighbour who recently had a ‘sold’ sign put up is asking her realtor to take it down because now she’s concerned,” Gee said. The recently widowed mother left her home early Friday morning, returning in the evening at approximately 9:30 p.m. to discover the damage. It appeared someone drove over boulders

other side of the lawn, creating deep gouge marks with their tires, Gee said. “It would be quite

expensive for me to have to repair that damage,” she said, noting that while the area is just on the outside of her property line, she has been maintaining it for years. “I’m hoping the city will be able to take this over.” Gee, who filed a RCMP report on Monday, is hoping someone who may have information on the person who caused the damage will contact her or police. “They should be held accountable,” she said. “It’s very upsetting. This was right outside my home.” Last month, a similar incident occured in Ocean Park. Leanne Zanatta came home to her front lawn covered in deep tread marks and damage to a tree on her property. Police later found a stolen vehicle matching the description that Zanatta’s neighbours had given, however no suspect was apprehended.

A matter of honour

B

.C. has a variety of ethnic communities – a fact which was not, apparently, lost on high-ranking aides to Premier Christy Clark, judging by a memo on planned public policy exchanged through their private email accounts and leaked to devastating effect last week by the NDP. It’s unfortunate that Clark’s BC Liberal cohort seemed to view her province’s multicultural fabric merely as another resource to be harvested for votes. It should come as no surprise that the BC Liberals are desperate to build a bridge across a growing credibility gap. What is surprising is how spectacularly they fail, yet again. At the click of a send button, Clark’s advisors have sullied the entire notion of politicians paying tribute to our richly varied ethnic communities. The process is tarnished, probably in perpetuity. To them, it seems, even government apologies for past wrongs are nothing more than “quick wins” in the political game. The anger of people so insulted, so dishonoured, is not likely to evaporate any time soon. Nor should it. Now, any time a politician dons a robe or shawl or ceremonial hat, or embraces some other tradition at an event recognizing multicultural diversity, it will be seen instantly as a callous, self-serving act rather than an expression of genuine respect. It’s too bad that, while targeting these communities and cultures for cynical votebuying exercises, Clark’s people did not stumble on any of their basic tenets. Most of us recognize that a core principle for most of the world’s cultures represented in Canada – regardless of ethnicity or country of origin – is the concept of ‘honour.’ Just as variations of the Golden Rule permeate so many world religions and philosophies, so, too, does a sense of honour, both personal and institutional. That the notion has, evidently, failed to gain a foothold in the premier’s office must be viewed as the responsibility of the person in charge. No number of apologies and promises of investigation can distance her from a culture of political cynicism that did, apparently, take root there. In her brief time at the helm of B.C.’s ship of state, we have seen the former open-line host do the opportunistic thing, the glib and expedient thing, the political thing. It’s time she did the honourable thing.

‘school’ each week with something new to proudly share with us – a new facial expression, hand gesture, dance or ‘word.’ I hate that she comes home each week with a new virus, which she also shares with us. Not a day goes by that I don’t secondguess our decision for me to return to work. I’m extremely proud of my career and the work I do – I’m even quite fond of the people I work with – but returning to work and placing our child in day care has been an extremely difficult, expensive and stressful transition. Would a $10-a-day governmentsubsidized program solve all of our childcare woes? No, not really. But it would ease some of the financial burden we are facing and perhaps allow us to explore some alternatives. As would the option of taking extended parental leave or working flexible or part-time hours upon returning to the workforce, which are other valid ideas that should be included in the discussion of this critical topic. Making the decision to place a child of any age into someone else’s care is never easy – and neither is making the decision to leave a career you enjoy and have worked hard to establish. Parenting comes with enough stress and worry as it is. While there is no quick fix for B.C.’s child-care quandary, long-term solutions that address affordability and accessibility for all families would be a tremendous help in making child-care decisions a little less stressful.

Pernicious posturing

An open letter to columnist Tom Fletcher. Re: Suzuki is the Don Cherry of television science, Feb. 26. Let’s see now, of the following, which do you possess? UNESCO Kalinga Prize for Science, the United Nations Environment Program Medal, Right Livelihood Award, which is considered an alternate Nobel Prize? The University of B.C. Lifetime Achievement Award in 2000? Have you received 25 honorary doctorate degrees from across Canada, the United States and as far away as Australia? As well, are you an officer of the Order of Canada? No? None of the above? Of course, the person that has been the recipient of all of the above is none other than David Suzuki – the person you chose to rail against in your last garbage contained in the Feb. 26 Peace Arch News. You are so obviously a fan of the oil and gas companies by way of your cohesiveness in suggesting all that do not are categorized as an anathema. A few ‘rants’ back, you were disparaging to Theresa Spence and the IdleNoMore movement (A real hero for aboriginal people, Jan. 8). Your reference to gas drilling and fracking as “Science, meet Hillbilly Handfishin’” is totally out of line. It takes up to eight million gallons of water to complete each fracturing job. Six hundred chemicals are used in fracturing fluid, including known carcinogens and toxins such as radium, methanol, hydrochloric acid and formaldehyde. During this process, methane gas and toxic chemicals leach out from the system and contaminate nearby ground water. You are pernicious in spouting off: “Moms rally against a gas well near a school in Eire, Penn.… an elderly Quebec woman sobs on camera, convinced that a nearby gas well will trigger a relapse of her cancer.” Methane concentrations are 17 times higher in drinking-water wells near fracturing sites than in normal wells. There have been over 1,000 documented cases of water contamination next to areas of gas drilling, as well as cases of sensory, respiratory and neurological damage due to ingested contaminated water. Your pitiful summation is “which suggests that more likely sources are cigarettes or exposure to disinfectants.” Only 30-50 per cent of the fracturing fluid is recovered, the rest of the toxic fluid is left in the ground and is not biodegradable. The waste fluid is left in open-air pits to evaporate releasing harmful volotile organic compounds into the atmosphere, creating contaminated air, acid rain and ground-level ozone. In the end, hydraulic fracking produces approximately 300,000 barrels of natural gas a day, but at the price of numerous environmental, safety and health hazards. Fran Manary, Surrey

Editor: Re: Wi-Fi opponernt wants schools to be hard-wired, Feb. 14. A teenage relative of mine once bought a cool cellphone, even though he knew it could make him sick. He is EMF-sensitive, and microwave transmissions make him headachy, agitated and spacey. It was OK, he said, as long as he kept it in “airplane” mode; and it helped make him feel more like one of the crowd. Young people are driven to keep up with the latest trends, and these days that most often means wireless technology. Unfortunately, the American Academy of Pediatrics and other medical authorities are concerned that children are also especially sensitive to all electromagnetic fields because their developing nervous systems are fragile, their brain tissues more conductive and their smaller skeletons more easily penetrated by microwaves.

Warnings from researchers, doctors, professors and government agencies – that microwave radiation is potentially harmful to children – are drowned out by a multi-billiondollar WiFi marketing machine. Your article about WiFi opponent Carl Katz inspires the hope that if anything can make a difference, it will be the dedication of parents committed to creating a healthy environment for their kids.

Compassion just the ticket Editor: When a family member is hospitalized, the parent or spouse should be given a windshield parking permit. Sometimes, the state of the patient demands hours of stand-by, which causes two-hour cash meters to be refilled, or you get a ticket. It is stressful to keep order at home, plus travel – sometimes an hour or more – to and from the hospital. So it is only reasonable and considerate

to supply free parking to the family members, especially seniors. The parking permit may be returned when the patient is discharged. May this please become a compassionate reality and help relieve some stress from the family. Ruth Kile, Surrey

Not-so-free trade with U.S. Editor: Re: Board leader gets prime minister’s ear, Feb. 14. The CEO of the Surrey Board of Trade is quoted as saying that Canada has an 18- to 20-per cent tariff on U.S. products imported to local shops. I thought we had a Free Trade Agreement with the U.S. So how can Canada impose a tariff on U.S. products? Is Canada breaking the terms of the Free Trade Agreement? Also, why did the Canadian Senate need such a long time to study why prices are higher in Canada, if the answer is so obvious? Christopher Rickwood, Surrey

Railing against coal dust off track

Editor: Re: We just wait for the dust to settle, Feb. 19 letters. It appears that any ‘train-bashing’ letter is a sure thing for publication in Peace Arch News, so I offer my thoughts on Stephanie Smith’s assertions. Having been passed by coal trains innumerable times, I have yet to come home looking like a chimney sweep. Also, if this dust is so pervasive, where is the evidence on the buildings and pavement along the waterfront? Since the trains originate in the Powder River Basin, I suggest that all the dust, if any, has blown off in the U.S. Incidentally, coal is mined in lumps, and powder is a byproduct. It is stretching credulity to state that coal traffic is a premature cause of track failure, and it would be useful to know the source(s) of this arguable claim. Of more concern is White Rock’s renewing of the lease of BNSF’s property for a further five-year term with the annual payment increasing to $400,000 starting this August (Council renews BNSF lease, Jan. 29.) It is frustrating that council made this decision at a closed meeting, ‘rubber-stamping’ such an increase, knowing that it will lead inevitably to even higher parking fees. It is another nail in White Rock’s existence as a separate entity. This contribution to BNSF shareholders amounts to roughly one-third of the revenue White Rock derives from parking. In addition, White Rock has to pay for

the cost of upgrades, maintenance and policing. The combination must mean that we are well into summer before we have paid our bills and can start putting money in the taxpayers’ account. The land that BNSF owns has no alternative use for the company and the earlier nominal rent reflected that fact. How can useless land be worth an extra $10,000 per year? I am declining to pay the increase for residents’ parking decals and question why council is continuing with the leasing arrangement, which amounts to coercion, without reviewing the terms. Obviously, we cannot return to the old arrangement, but I question whether we should continue with the current one with further $50,000 increases every five years without a re-think. Lower Mainland residents have access to the ocean at only two seaside locations, and we should not penalize visitors by imposing ever-increasing parking fees in order to maintain the exclusiveness of a separate city. Being White Rock’s sole source of income other than property taxes, parking income is council’s unlimited cash-cow – with visitors wallets an easy target. It appeared to make sense in the ’50s for this little enclave of White Rock to go it alone, but our neighbour to the north has grown up, and eventually White Rock will have to amalgamate with Surrey for the benefits of a larger tax base and rationalized services.

Three men – including one from Surrey – have been charged with the first-degree murder of Jonathan Bacon of Abbotsford and the attempted murder of four others in Kelowna in August 2011.

Rob Vermeulen at the press conference. Khun-Khun was critically injured in that shooting, and was also shot at in Surrey one month after Bacon’s killing. Since Bacon’s death, several other high-profile gangsters have been killed or targeted, including Sandip Duhre, who was gunned down in a Vancouver restaurant in January 2012. Sukh Dhak died in November 2012, after being shot in the lobby of the Executive Inn Hotel and Conference Centre in Burnaby. His bodyguard Thomas Mantel was also killed.  In January, Manjinder Hairan was fatally gunned down near 127 Street and 112B Avenue in Surrey. Khun-Khun was again critically wounded in that incident. Khun-Khun was also arrested last September in Abbotsford in a car that was allegedly seen pulling away from the scene of a drive-by shooting on Bradner Road, but no charges were laid.  Malo said the investigation surrounding the Kelowna shooting is ongoing.

Cloverdale mom shares the story of her struggle to conceive

Discovering hope through the heartache Jennifer Lang

F

Black Press

or Cloverdale mom Misty Busch, the hardest part of giving birth to premature twins was having to leave her babies at the hospital at the end of every day, even though they were in good hands. Busch’s baby boy and girl were born with a low birth weight and feeding complications that required several agonizing weeks in the neo-natal intensive care unit. “It was horrible leaving your babies at the hospital,” she said. The twins were born at just 33 weeks, after a difficult, high-risk pregnancy plagued with problems. Twins are more likely to be born prematurely, setting them up for a higher risk of complications and long-lasting health impacts such as developmental delay and cerebral palsy. Just 12 weeks after she’d conceived through in-vitro fertilization, Busch developed gestational diabetes, and was prescribed bed rest for the remainder of her pregnancy – a span of 4½ months, from ❝I consider to myself lucky. September the third week I’m trying to of January. pave the way “There were for others.❞ lots of hurdles,” she recalled. Just 26 when she and her husband sought help, Busch was one of the youngest patients at the fertility clinic at UBC hospital. Two prior tubal pregnancies meant it was inadvisable, possibly dangerous, for Busch to conceive through conventional means. In IVF, an egg is fertilized outside the body, and implanted. Determined to add to their young family, Busch underwent two rounds of IVF in order to conceive, an exhausting process and an expensive one. Like many couples struggling with infertility, she and her husband opted to transfer two embryos at one time – in hopes of boosting the odds that the expensive medical procedure would be a success, even though the decision carries certain risks. Each attempt costs between $8,000 to $10,000 – with no guarantees that it will work, Busch said – and involves medical appointments, egg retrieval, and embryo transfer. The procedure isn’t presently covered by the province in B.C., but for the Busches, a young couple just starting out, it was worth it, even if the quest to conceive put other dreams like buying a house on hold. “I had the rest of my life to have a house,” Busch said. “I didn’t have

Now five, Busch said that the twins are happy and healthy. the rest of my life to have a child. To me, it was a no-brainer. My drive to be able to have children was much more than it was to be a home owner at that moment.” Busch recently stepped forward to lend her voice to a campaign launched by the Infertility Awareness Association of Canada calling on the province of B.C.

to publicly fund single-embryo transfer IVF. “I consider myself lucky. I’m trying to pave the way for others,” she said. The province of Quebec has already adopted the policy, which proponents say will lead to fewer complications for mothers and babies, and will save the health-

care system money by reducing multiple births. A report commissioned by the association released last week suggests B.C. could save $78 million in healthcare dollars in the first five years if it agrees to fund single-embryo transfer IVF. One in six couples suffer from infertility, noted Busch, pointing to

the results of a survey the Infertility Awareness Association released in December that found 73 per cent of British Columbians agree the province should provide public funding for IVF. Multiples are more than 17 times more likely to be pre-term, require a caesarean section and need postdelivery care. With that in mind, Busch said if she had it all to do over again, she would choose to have one embryo implanted during her IVF procedure. Some clinics make it standard practice, she adds. “They’re trying to get you a healthy baby, and a healthy pregnancy. A multiple pregnancy isn’t necessarily a success,” she says. At the time, the Busches didn’t have tons of money to keep “throwing into this” so they decided – as do many other couples trying to conceive through IVF – to have more than one embryo implanted at one time. “I decided to put back two embryos based on the fact of how expensive it was,” she explained. “We’re talking $8,000 to $10,000 per try.” The provincial government so far says funding IVF isn’t in the budget, but she remains hopeful that will one day change. “The government’s concern is what these procedures will cost and taxpayers are asking why are we paying for people to have children.” By creating more awareness around the issue, she hopes the public will realize it makes financial sense and is the right thing to do because infertility is ultimately a health issue affecting so many. It’s been five years since those harrowing days and nights when the twins were born. Now five, they are healthy and happy. For the past three years, Misty has co-led an infertility support group in Ocean Park. They meet at the library in Ocean Park every third Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. “I find we’re a very unique group. We have a place for people to come and talk. We also give them the resources to deal with their infertility.” Along with peer support, participants find resources, and learn from guest speakers – from reflexologists to Chinese medicine practitioners and, recently, a reproductive endocrinologist. When she was going through IVF treatment, Misty says she’d look at a photo album of success stories in the medical lobby at UBC. Knowing that it had worked for other people gave her hope. Providing hope to other couples is an important aspect of her work “For these women this is very painful. For husbands, too. It’s heartbreaking.”

Not long after the company formed as Mainroad Construction in the late ’80s, it began “quietly supporting” the students at Bridgeview Elementary.

Students learn on the job with RCMP officers

Training day on police beat Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Nine Semiahmoo Peninsula students got an up-close look at policing recently, when Surrey and White Rock RCMP invited them to be police officers for a day. “It was so fun,” said White Rock RCMP Const. Janelle Shoihet of the event. “They each got their own sort of experience from it.” Shoihet and South Surrey RCMP Special Const. Susan Caley hosted the students, aged five to 12 years, on Feb. 8, introducing them to a wide variety of policing aspects. The day started at 8 a.m. with a

“challenging but doable” obstacle course. That was followed by a trip to the White Rock detachment, where the students received and dressed in their “uniforms” – kid-sized Red Serge. They were then fingerprinted and photographed, had a tour of the detachment – including the prisoner cellblock – got to check out a police vehicle and were introduced to detachment commander, Staff Sgt. Lesli Roseberry. The young officers conducted some radar enforcement on Pacific Avenue, then headed to the South Surrey RCMP office where Const. Troy Derrick treated them to

a ride on an ATV. At the main Surrey RCMP detachment, the students met Const. Danilo Amoranto of the Lower Mainland Emergency Response Team, who introduced them to his team’s vehicles, tools and weaponry; and Chief Supt. Bill Fordy – who they quickly nicknamed “the Big Cheese.” A highlight for many of the students was meeting police service dog Timber and his handler, Const. Kent Wagner. They also got to visit the Surrey RCMP Operations Control Center, where they saw and heard how dispatchers deal with crimes. “It was a very full day… the best day,” Shoihet said.

Q

uestion: Five years ago, I met and married a man 15 years older than me who is a good provider but I now find him to be a stick in the mud and boring. His age is catching up to him and he is beginning to have health problems. I dread having to look after him when he starts to fall apart. I never had a dime, but he is quite comfortably off. My girlfriends say that if I can stick it out for two or three more years I can divorce him and get half his assets. That would be seven or eight years all told. Is that enough for me to get half?

I can help with all your legal documents. Power of Attorney, Wills

Second-annual event aims to reduce power use

Schools vie for Energy Cup The second-annual Surrey Schools Energy Conservation Cup ended last Friday, with 19 secondary schools and the District Education Centre competing to save the most energy over two weeks. Competitors were divided into four divisions. The top two winners in each division – Guldford Park, L.A. Matheson, Panorama Ridge, Semiahmoo, Sullivan Heights, Johnston Heights, Clayton Heights and Fleetwood Park – move on to the energy competition finals April 15 to 19, with the victor getting bragging rights and the Energy Conservation Cup. “Dig out your ugly sweaters and pack a cold lunch because these are the weeks when our schools and DEC will be trying to reduce the amount of energy they use,” Alasdair MacKinnon, the district’s director of energy management

Mike McKay sets the tone for the Energy Conservation Cup by carpooling in the most fuel-efficient vehicle he could find – a Smart car belonging to Sullivan Heights Secondary teacher Sarah Garr. and sustainability, said as the event kicked off Feb. 18. Using consumption data compiled by energy intelligence provider Pulse Energy, each participant has committed to reducing their use of electricity and natural gas by a certain percentage. Last year, schools had their cafeterias serve cold lunches to avoid firing

up the ovens, held “Ugly Sweater Days” while turning down room thermostats, put on acoustic concerts over lunch and turned off as many lights as possible without jeopardizing student safety or inhibiting student learning. “The idea is to be creative,” said MacKinnon. “It’s one thing to change

hardware and upgrade to energy efficient systems, but changing human behaviour is the greater challenge and it’s activities like these that will do it.” The L.A. Matheson Mustangs won last year’s inaugural Energy Conservation Cup, saving more than 2,000 kilowatt hours (kWh), translating to an energy savings of 18.2 per cent.

Criminal Collision Investigation Team ‘greatly appreciated’

RCMP traffic unit honoured Surrey RCMP’s Criminal Collision Investigation Team has been honoured by the BC Association of Chiefs of Police traffic safety committee for excellence in “Collision or Crash Investigation.” Several members of the team attended a ceremony held Jan. 30 at the Vancouver Sheraton Guildford Hotel, where they were honoured by committee chair, Victoria Police Chief Jamie Graham. “This specialized traffic unit has been recognized and greatly appreciated by not only the residents of their community, but by the larger police community in British Columbia,” Graham states in a Feb. 26 release. “Their investigative work culminating in criminal charges is considered a best practice within law enforcement.” The CCIT was formed in 2010 to balance routine traffic enforcement with the demands of investigating complex motor vehicle incidents that result in fatalities or serious injuries. In the first two years of its existence the team investigated more

Many are comprehensive and require an abundance of documentation, including engineer’s reports, re-enactments and hundreds of pages of reports to Crown counsel. The ultimate goal for the team is to submit detailed crash investigations to Crown so that a timely and successful prosecution can result.

Surrey RCMP Insp. Lee Chanin commended the officers for their “tireless work ethic and diligence in helping bring justice to those families who have lost loved ones in tragic circumstances.” “Our investigators continue to set the standard for traffic-collision investigations and are seen as some of the best in the province,” Chanin said.

Water between the mainland and Gulf Islands is bustling with life

Listening to the roar of the Salish Sea O

cean waters between the mainland and the Gulf Islands are home to many marine mammals, including whales, sea lions, porpoises and dolphins. Anne Murray Two species of sea lion, the California and the Steller sea lion, are present in southern B.C. waters at this time of year. They can sometimes be seen swimming in the sea or hauled out on rocky islets and jetties. Sea lions are much larger and noisier than the more common harbour seals, which belong to a separate family. Even from a distance, one soon hears the barking calls of California sea lions or the loud growls and grunts of enormous male Steller sea lions. They raise themselves on their front flippers and turn their rear flippers forwards, so that they are quite agile on land. Underwater, they are sleek, fast predators, feeding on herring, hake, octopus and rockfish, depending on the time of year.

since 1970, the B.C. colonies have rebounded. This is not the case for the once-abundant Gulf of Alaska populations, which have declined dramatically since the 1950s. The northeast Pacific Ocean has been undergoing significant ecological change and Steller sea lions, harbour seals and northern fur seals are all struggling to survive. With herring in short supply there, the sea lions feed on less nutritious fish, such as pollock. Only male California sea lions spend the winter in B.C. They often gather out on the eightkilometre Steveston jetty in spring. Until the 1960s, they were rarely seen locally. Their presence here now may be overflow from booming southern populations, or due to cyclical ocean conditions. California sea lions are recovering from nearly 200 years of extermination in California and Mexico but are now thriving. Boat trips depart from Steveston harbour to view sea lions on the jetty, or you can watch for them in deep water off White Rock pier, Point Roberts or the Gulf Islands.

Often, it is associated just with the hard sciences. In reality, it plays a part in every faculty. The cookie-cutter approach to providing undergraduates with research positions simply will not appeal to those looking to combine knowledge from a diverse set of fields. Building a fostering research environment in Canada will requires the efforts of both universities and the public. In fact, it is time for us to nationally recognize the next generation of bright innovators. An excellent initiative by the Wilfred Laurier Graduate Student Association is currently recognizing research students in that university. However, universities throughout Canada need to collectively recognize student researchers through a national research week. It is time that we had a dialogue on the way we perceive and recognize the contributions of researchers, while at the same time paving a path for future innovators.

ASK THE DENTIST!

Treating Headaches and a Bad Bite

Question: For many years now I’ve been suffering from daily headaches. My Family Doctor’s only solution has been pain killers and muscle relaxants! I’ve seen several medical specialists but they have been of little help. I know my bite is off because my jaws ache when I chew and click when I open but, how can my teeth be causing me this constant headache pain?

Answer: 90% of all headaches are muscular in origin and Neuromuscular Dentists focus on the relationship between the TemperoMandibular Joint (TMJ), the muscles, nerves and boney structures of the head and neck and how this system is affected by the patients dental occlusion (“bite”). When jaw joint, muscle and related head and neck problems are associated with a bad bite, Neuromuscular Dentists refer to it as Cranio-Mandibular Dysfunction (“CMD”). Signs and symptoms of CMD include; cluster headaches; migraines; clicking and popping jaw joint sounds; limited opening; deviations on opening; neck or shoulder pain; worn or missing teeth; sore tired jaw muscles; tingling in the thumb and fore-fingers; tinnitus; itchy plugged ears; vertigo; speech and or problems swallowing.

a NM Dentist to develop base line data and evaluate tangible improvements in clinical outcomes on a predictable and repeatable basis. This objective data can also be readily shared and interpreted by other healthcare professionals. Case Study: 37 year old Caucasian female presented with a 20+year history of chronic migraine type headaches (3-4 weekly) and was being treated at a Headache Clinic in the lower mainland with a combination of Anti-depressants, NSAID’s, Triptans, and Botox but, her migraines were not improving. In late January, 2012, patient received a complete NM workup utilizing K7 equipment, and a CT scan of her TM Joints. The result of her zero based clinical exam was a diagnosis of CMD. The patients malocclusion was causing severe muscle spasm in her Temporalis muscles leading to a torqued and retruded mandibular position causing internal derangement of her disco-condylar complex. Treatment involved fabrication, insertion and adjustment (with TENS) of a removable lower NM orthotic to reposition her mandible and allow for disk recapture. Within the first few days of wearing the NM orthotic, the patient’s migraine headaches had reduced in both frequency and intensity. Within 3 months they had almost completely resolved, allowing the patient to successfully titrate off her meds. Physical therapy was implemented throughout this period and all postural manipulations were made while wearing the NM orthotic. Patient is now finishing Invisalign orthodontic therapy and the correction of her malocclusion is nearly completed. Patient remains med free and pain free as confirmed by low EMG rest and adjusted jaw trajectory scans.

Patients suffering from longstanding headaches and TMJ symptoms are usually very skeptical until we complete our examination because NM Dentists employ a zero based medical model whereby CMD symptoms are compared to objective, reproduceable computer derived data. Unlike traditional methods for treating CMD, (bite splints and muscle relaxants), Neuromuscular Dentists recognize that the muscles of the head and neck must be in a state of Physiologic Rest or relaxation – if the muscles are in a state of chronic contraction the patients bite and jaw-joint relationship cannot be optimized. This is also important when fitting a SomnoDent appliance for patients with Sleep Apnea. NM Dentists objectively evaluate muscle strain and activity using EMG leads and relax jaw and neck muscles using ultra low frequency Transcutaneous Electrim High EMG #s from bad bite cal Neural Stimulation (TENS). This type of analytical diagnostic information is preferable to subjectively quantifying pain and discomfort solely through manual muscle palpation. NMD’s employ digital Joint Sonography and sophisticated realtime computer diagnostics and jaw tracking equipment called “K7” Evaluation system to accurately locate the jaw in a precise position that supports optimal health for the entire body. The K7 system allows

Ralph Sultan

Seniors’ advocate proposed

Thursday, March 7, 2013 Peace Arch News

news Tom Fletcher Black Press

The B.C. government’s proposal to create a new seniors’ advocate office is being criticized as a pre-election gesture to create a position that won’t have the authority to hold government accountable on problems faced by seniors. Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid tabled legislation last week to create the new position. Unlike the auditor general

Faith

and the representative for children and youth, the office would not be independent, but would report to the health ministry. MacDiarmid said the new seniors’ advocate will monitor seniors’ services and work with policy-makers, senior care providers and others to identify solutions to “systemic issues� such as those faced by families navigating the province’s system of seniors’ care.

Katrine Conroy, NDP critic for seniors, said it has been six years since the opposition first called for a new seniors’ watchdog. Conroy said she is disappointed that the proposed office not only has no set budget, it is not intended to investigate individual cases. Premier Christy Clark appointed West Vancouver-Capilano MLA Ralph Sultan to a new Minister of State for Seniors position last fall.

elping Peninsula residents look and feel their very best for more than a decade, New Beauty Institute in White Rock is thrilled to offer yet another revolutionary age-defying treatment. Ultherapy Skin Tightening is a new cutting-edge, non-surgical option to treat skin laxity with absolutely zero downtime. You may notice as you get a bit older that your skin has lost its elasticity, sometimes resulting in droopy eyelids, a double chin or the dreaded ‘turkey neck.’ Ultherapy, a Health Canada-approved procedure, lifts and tones while stimulating support layers of the skin targeting facial tissues that are often targeted by surgical facelifts. “We are in a great position at this time with technology compared to five or 10 years ago,” explains New Beauty owner Caree Ludwar, who has used Ultherapy herself on her inner arms and said she is “thrilled” with the results. “Perhaps we do not need plastic surgeons like we did a few years back!” In addition to lifting the skin into a more youthful position, Ultherapy also slows down the aging process and regenerates collagen, resulting in a younger, more vibrant and fresh appearance. Unlike lasers, which work from the outside-in, Ultherapy moves beyond the surface of the skin to target the deep, structural skin tissues where collagen is found. When ultrasound is directed

below the skin surface to the layer called the dermis, it disturbs that layer with its vibration and a low level of heat. This causes it to react by producing more collagen and tighter new skin cells. The new cells have replaced old cells to give the skin a fresher look and the extra collagen provides more skin support, smoothing out wrinkles. Ultimately, more collagen means a reduction in the rate of your skin’s aging. This can provide a soft and subtle uplift to the chin, jowl and brow. Décolleté, elbows and knees, and the derriere are three of the most popular “trouble spots” that our patients target with this treatment. “In a single session, you can get such great results with Ultherapy,” Caree says. “Or you can do eight to 10 sessions of another procedure for the same amount of money and get minimal results.” New Beauty Institute also offers a wide range of other cosmetic treatments, including the everpopular CoolSculpting, which targets stubborn body fat with results that are truly amazing. Love handles, back fat and post-pregnancy belly are problems of the past with this non-invasive, state-of-the-art procedure. For a complimentary consultation for Ultherapy, CoolSculpting or any of the treatments New Beauty Institute offers, contact them today at 604-541-8750 – you’ll be happy you did!

on’t be fooled by how young she is, Chelsea Badr, stylist and owner of Hidden Gem Hair Studio, has more than 10 years of experience in the industry. The professionally-trained stylist and entrepreneur started out as a shampoo girl and assistant while in school. By the end of graduation, she had showed enough talent to be a full-time stylist. After four years of working in salons, Chelsea focused on creating her own business. Based out of her own home for five years, the positive response spurred her to open her own business in April 2011. “Within a month of deciding to buy, I had it up and running,” she said. “In less than a year, I had each booth rented out and almost tripled my clientele.” Recently, Chelsea was nominated for the Young Entrepreneur of the Year for the second year in a row at the Business Excellence Awards, an honour she has worked hard to achieve. “I strive to set myself apart by not doublebooking clients, and giving myself plenty of time for each service,” she said. “We want our clients to feel the best, so we also offer complimentary hand treatments with all chemical services.”

Despite her wealth of experience, Chelsea continues her education in the field, upgrading her tools and techniques to better serve her clientele. She is the go-to person for colour, precision cuts, extensions, perms and Brazilian smoothing treatments called Kera Straight. “I believe in using top quality products, that’s why I choose Joico for colour service. Joico is known as the healthy hair company, and that’s really important to me,” said Chelsea, who was an educator with Joico and is a colour specialist. “Kevin Murphy is another popular line I carry.” Despite her jam-packed schedule, Chelsea works hard to give back to her community, taking part in fundraising events such as Relay for Life and donating her services and gift certificates for a variety of local causes. She is also a member of the South Surrey & White Rock Chamber of Commerce. Most of all, she is passionate about her work. “I love, love, love my career and I am so excited that I am living my dream right now,” she said.

indsor Square Dental Centre opened its doors six years ago, providing a oneof-a-kind dental experience for patients of all ages. From the trickling waterfall in the reception area and state-of-the-art dental equipment, to the curved walls with ultra-sleek decor, a trip to this dentist feels more like a visit to the spa. The friendly and caring staff at Windsor Square Dental are fully trained and go above and beyond to ensure a comfortable and reassuring experience for every patient, according to Dr. May Rane. “Most dental offices work the same way, providing similar services,” she said. “In my practice, my staff and myself are willing to go out of our way to make sure patients feel comfortable and at home.” Regular dental visits are an important part of a child’s oral health prevention program, which Windsor Square Dental Centre strives to make an enjoyable experience. “We focus on creating a fun and comfortable environment for your child’s visit,” said Dr. Rane. Dr. Rane takes great pride in running a happy

and healthy office, which she treats as her third child. While she will be the first to admit it’s no easy feat, she couldn’t imagine life any other way. “Being a mother of two teenage boys has its own challenges,” she laughed, “especially when added to running a business. But at the end of the day, it gives me a sense of fulfillment.” When it comes to location, Dr. Rane couldn’t have picked a better spot for her dental practice than right here on the Peninsula. “I really enjoy the feeling of working in a small, close-knit community. People here are so warm and friendly.” Dr. Rane and her staff extend a warm welcome to new clients as well as their gratitude for current loyal patients. “We love working for you -- my patients from Guildford who have been with me for almost 15 years will vouch for that,” said Dr.Rane. “We are always just a phone call away, no matter what time of the day you need us!” For more information, visit www.windsorsquaredental.com or call 604-538-1204.

F

or close to 30 years, Shibui Skin Care has been known as a sanctuary for those seeking relaxation and pampering, offering extraordinary skin care services and products in a warm, caring atmosphere. Owner Amy Walmsley and the team at Shibui are thrilled to welcome customers old and new to their new Ocean Park location – a beautiful setting that provides more serenity than ever. With a team of experienced specialists on hand, Amy notes she is fortunate to have such talented women on board, each offering something unique and wonderful to Shibui’s clients. Marie Claude, who has been in the business for close to 25 years, takes care of electrolysis and aesthetics at Shibui, and according to Amy, her pleasant nature and great sense of humour always keeps both staff and clients laughing. Jenna, also an aesthetician, is Shibui’s resident ‘techie,’ taking care of printing up price lists and business cards, and using her ‘zen’ background to beautifully decorate the new store. Jenna also offers gel overlay manicures. Shibui’s latest staff member is Nikki, who brings with her more than 16 years of experience in several local spas, and is a pro at CELLCOSMET facials. Please watch for our

Carol Berry ads and emails regarding our CELLCOSMET Day on Monday April 15, and how YOU can receive a free CELLCOSMET facial. Nadia rounds out the team of aesthetician’s, with several years of experience in the business, (and loves to do facials!) Sally, who Amy refers to as ‘the happy fitness girl,’ offers massage, and also teaches yoga twice a day. The receptionist team – who Amy said really keeps Shibui ticking – consists of Corrine, Katie, Wendy, Kelly and Gerryann, who are always ready to book appointments and greet customers with a smile and fresh beverage.

SPECIALTY BOUTIQUE FOR CANINES

It was around 12 years ago when Carol Berry decided to swap legal acquisitions and documents for nail polish, gels and friendly banter with clients. After many years working in law, the former legal assistant decided to embark on a new path as a nail technician - a career switch that has changed her lifestyle and has brought her immense joy. “I always had nice nails and was kidding around with my coworkers about doing nails as a way to make a living when I learned my job wasn’t going to be around much longer” said Carol, who went on to take a course to become a registered nail technician (“RNT”). At that time, it required completing 285 hours of practical training and exams in school before taking the Cosmetology Association of BC exams. Today, the industry is deregulated and does not require any formal training. Carol is the proud owner of Carol’s Nail Spa and for the past five years has worked with Amy at Shibui Skin Care which recently moved to 12854 16 Ave. in Ocean Park. “I’ve had so much loyal support over the years... many are ladies who have been with me since I started 12 years ago. I think that speaks for itself.” “There appears to be some confusion as to what the difference is among the various nail services. For instance, do you have acrylic

nails, acrylic nails with gel sealer, solar nails, gel nails, gel manicure?” “If a client wants artificial/sculptured nails, my preference is gel nails. Although slightly more expensive, in my opinion they are healthier for the nail. They are non-yellowing, odorless, flexible and look very natural. I would be very happy to discuss your options. Please call or come in for a consultation.” Clients can take great comfort in knowing Carol is very particular to provide clients a safe and healthy environment. “It’s very important to follow the procedures regarding sanitation,” said Carol. Aside from taking pride in her work, Carol loves the customer-service aspect of her business. “I love my clients,” she said matter-of-factly. “You’ve really got to be a people person in this industry... If you don’t have a connection, that person isn’t coming back to you.” For other women who aren’t satisfied in their current jobs, Carol encourages them to consider following a new path - even if it leads them in a new direction. Carol’s advice, “If a door opens up to you, don’t be afraid to explore the opportunities it has to offer.” For more information or to make an appointment, call Carol today.

t was around nine years ago when Megan Ferris left the corporate realm to follow her passion of working with pups. Today, the former Financial Services Rep is the proud owner of Dog Utopia Day Care & Spa, a one-ofa-kind specialty boutique for canines dedicated to enhancing the well-being and happiness of dogs and their families. “I was just so tired of conforming to the corporate world’s expectations and wanted to do something that mattered to me,” said Ferris, who is on the board of Paws for Hope Animal Foundation and has volunteered and worked at animal shelters in Alberta and B.C.; She has also taken numerous dog behaviour seminar and training classes. To say she has a knack for reading dogs is certainly an understatement. “Working with dogs is a real strength of mine,” she said. “I’m not sure where it comes from, but it’s just a great fit.” Dog Utopia Day Care & Spa, located at 8 - 15531 24 Ave. in South Surrey, is no ordinary grooming/care centre. “It’s more of a relationship-based business,” noted Ferris, also emphasizing the importance of treating every

dog as an individual, while still treating them like dogs. “A lot of dogs are very fearful of new situations, which includes grooming. We treat the dogs with respect here and recognize where they need confidence building. We want to teach dogs, mostly puppies, that a grooming process is not a scary thing – that it can be a fun experience. Yes, there are some scary parts to it to a dog, but we do it bit by bit, providing numerous smaller visits for one price.” And it’s the trust of the pet owner in Ferris’ technique and that of her staff that allows her to do the job at hand – a responsibility bestowed on her by her clients that she holds in high regard. “Thank you for caring so much about your dogs and being so devoted to them. It means a lot that you trust me with your furry kids.” In honour of International Women’s Day, Ferris was happy to share a tip that has helped her thrive in business. “Stay true to yourself while making those tough decisions – don’t let anyone hold you back – but always take time for yourself. You are no good to your business if you don’t take care of you” For more information, visit www.dogutopia.ca or call 604-541-8120.

id you know that proper windshield installation is as important to your safety as seat belts, air bags and anti-lock brakes? That’s right! Today, auto glass is more than just a shield to protect the driver and occupants from wind, weather and debris. Now the windshield also keeps you and your family from being thrown from the vehicle in case of a collision and adds to the structural strength of the vehicle as a whole. Proper auto glass installation is the key to your safety. There is a right way and wrong way to install auto glass. Auto glass installation requires a very strong yet flexible adhesive to bond the glass to the vehicle frame. This adhesive must have great strength to withstand the pressures put upon it in the event of a collision. The most widely used adhesive is called “automotive grade urethane.” When it comes to repair, replacement and installation, the government-certified

technicians at Broco Auto Glass can do it all – cracked or chipped windshields; car, truck and van windows; glass doors; store front glass and more! They also custom-make and install glass, wall mirrors and sandblasted glass art work. As an extra incentive for customers to get their damaged windshields fixed, Broco owner Larisa Zenin-Segrc is offering rockchip repairs for just $25 (50 per cent off) for the entire month of March. This offer is just one example of how Larisa and the Broco team go above and beyond when it comes to customer service, which has earned them a trusted reputation in the community. “We our proud of our reputation in the industry,” Larisa says. “Broco was the first auto glass shop to be approved by both the BCAA and the ICBC Glass Express program. However, what I find the most rewarding is our ability to provide truly caring service to our customers. That’s what being a community business is all about.”

Dr. Tina Alexander during this time, however – Dr. Barker will be filling in to treat patients while Dr. Alexander takes a short maternity leave. While Dr. Alexander admits, owning her own business and balancing a young family is no easy task, she notes that being her own boss allows her the flexibility to make it all work. “You definitely have to surround yourself with a good team,” she advises, noting she has experienced professionals who help out with the sides of business she is not familiar with. “My time is valuable and I want to spend it doing the things that I enjoy - family and friends, practicing dentistry, getting to know my patients and being a member of many study clubs as I’m always looking at how I can treat my patients better” Thrilled to be a part of the vibrant Peninsula community, Dr. Alexander wishes to thank all her patients and welcomes new ones to her practice.

Gwen wishes to thank all her clients and the White Rock / South Surrey community for more than 15 years of great business. “I am so thankful for this community,” she says. “I enjoy the people here so much, and I’ve never felt so comfortable anywhere else before.

Just last month, Courtesy Cleaners was honoured to be named Business of the Year, in the eight to 14-employee category by the South Surrey White Rock Chamber of Commerce. With the entire province gearing up toward a greener agenda, now is a great time to choose the most environmentally friendly alternative to dry cleaning.

ithout a doubt, purchasing a home is one of the biggest, life-changing investments one can make. Which is why having the trusted help of an Accredited Mortgage Professional is essential to ensure that you’re getting a mortgage that is right for you. With more than 20 years of experience in mortgages and real estate conveyancing, Luisa Hough of Verico Exclusive Mortgage Professionals in South Surrey/White Rock provides invaluable insight and excellent customer care. “I take the time to educate and teach my clients about their mortgages as well as get them the best rate, product and service,” she said. “I work for the clients, not the banks. My job is to ensure that throughout the life of their mortgage they are looked after.” Since becoming a Mortgage Broker, Luisa has built her reputation on offering knowledgeable, trusted service in a warm and friendly way, often using her own experiences as a working mom to relate

to her customers and what they’re going through. For the past three years, Luisa has been named among the Top 50 Canadian Mortgage Brokers, as well as among the Top 5 for two years in a row. She recently received the Five Star Mortgage Professional Award and has been featured in Vancouver Magazine and Western Living Magazine. She points out, however, these accolades are not about how much business she does, rather, how she treats her clients and the feedback she receives from them. “My clients are like my family and I want to see them succeed and eventually get into their dream home,” she said. “I want to grow with them.” Whether you already have a mortgage or are thinking about getting one, Luisa has the tools and knowledge to help find the best fit for your long-term needs.

Centerpoint Yoga Therapy Studio offers a friendly supportive environment to explore multi dimensional aspects of healing through yoga. In regular classes, private sessions and workshops, Leila teaches awareness of habitual ways of breathing, moving, standing and interacting with the world. Using experiential anatomy, gentle and safe alignment and movement

repatterning, restorative postures, breath work and other yoga therapy tools, students and teacher work together to create simple programs that are practical, doable and tailored to meet individual needs. Most importantly students are motivated to participate in their own healing process. 24 years experience as a massage therapist and yoga teacher have taught Leila that suffering on any level is a wake-up call to look at and heal aspects of life that are out of balance. Centerpoint Yoga Therapy offers practical tools from the art and science of yoga that enable students to live a healthier, balanced and satisfying life.

T

he more we learn about how teeth are worn down, says Dr. Sandra Finch, the better we can find the right balance between improving your appearance and caring for your new look. This means that a complete understanding of wear is critical to keeping your smile looking good. Because we certainly give our teeth a good workout over a lifetime, often the underlying cause of an uneven smile is day-to-day biting, improper alignment or night time grinding. These normal jaw activities can wear our pearly whites irregularly, and that will eventually cause concern. Dr. Finch has pursued advances in care since opening a clinic on the peninsula in 1993. Offering all aspects of general dentistry, Dr. Finch’s office specializes in comprehensive dental care and appearance related dentistry including the health and maintenance of the gums and the supporting tissues of your teeth. She is a UBC grad whose dedication to

Certified Practitioner

‘hands on’ dental education brings leading treatments to the peninsula. Her training in cast gold restorations, and postgraduate studies in Louisiana, Dallas, San Francisco and Seattle, are an example of her passion for excellence. “I have had the opportunity and privilege to work with and learn from quite literally some of the very best dentists in Canada and the United States.” Dr. Finch is also a certified practitioner in the administration of Botox Cosmetic™. “I see my ability to offer Botox to my patients as a natural evolution in dentistry and providing the services that the image conscious patient wants” Botox can be used to relax the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, giving the face a more relaxed and refreshed appearance. What better way to complement your new smile than with your face at its natural best?

■ Family-run business

■ Unbeatable selection of running shoes

In addition to selling authentic Native art from across the Americas, Cheryl’s Trading Post is a hub for local talent, which is plentiful on the Peninsula.

arved totems, plaques, masks, drums, blankets and exquisite jewelry are just a small handful of the handmade creations by Native Peoples of the Americas found at Cheryl’s Trading Post. Owner Cheryl Morgan Gregory opened the Peninsula store two years ago with a simple vision in mind –”To provide for her family while creating employment for Native artists.” “I’ve always wanted to have a Native art store... I thought about doing it most of my life,” reflected the mother of two – her daughters, Amber and Cheyenne, also work alongside her, as well as her niece, brother and husband. “It’s a real family business – definitely a positive, uplifting place to be.” Since opening back in October of 2011, business at Cheryl’s Trading Post has been booming; A Facebook fan page, ‘I Love Cheryl’s Trading Post,’ has garnered a huge following of 3,678 people and counting. “Everyone just loves the art!” said Morgan Gregory matter-of-factly. “I’ve heard people saying ‘it’s a healing or magical place.’ I’ve also had someone tell us ‘you’ve got the best store in the world.’

“We are proud to carry pieces from the Semiahmoo First Nations,” said Morgan Gregory. “Right now we have work from Leslie Wells and Leonard Wells.” In recognition of International Women’s Day, Morgan Gregory noted she’s proud to have some amazing women on staff, two of whom happen to be her own daughters. “I’m really proud of them and what they’ve accomplished already. They are pretty amazing and strong women – all very important in helping the store run smoothly.” Also key to the store’s success has been the support of the loyal customers, she added. “We really appreciate them and do our best to keep them happy by giving them the best prices and the best products. I hope they keep coming back – they are the reason we are able to be here.” For more information, visit www.cherylstradingpost.com or call 604-538-5008

hen Lisa Farrow walked into Peninsula Runners 16 years ago, she did not intend to get a job. After coming up to owner Paul to make a purchase, the sales till began to have a little trouble. So Lisa did what any woman would do. “I came around the counter and rang in my own sale. No joke!” she laughed. “I was like, let’s do this, we can do this.” Taking on the manager position at the store was a perfect fit for the physically active Peninsula resident, she said. Since then, Lisa has been witness to the significant changes in the industry, including the selection. “When Peninsula Runners first opened, there were only 9 models of running shoes, and now we have nearly half our wall space is dedicated to just shoes,” she said. “Technology has helped to make shoes lighter, more cushioned and long-lasting, which, of course, always benefits the customer.” The store’s wide selection, combined with their knowledgeable staff is perfect for customers who want the best service when buying new gear for their runs, hikes and walks. “To be able to help and advise people with their running or fitness goals with something as simple as the right pair of shoes, or even the

SEMIAHMOO SHOPPING CENTRE 1711 - 152ND STREET

camaraderie and commitment of a run clinic is pretty nice,” Lisa admits. The team provides support, not only for their staff, but in their community, Lisa said. “We want our community to not only be healthy, but be supportive of community projects, charities and awarneness campaigns,” she said. Peninsula Runners also has some wellrecognized running clinics ranging from the 5-km to marathon distances. Their 5- and 10km clinics are unique because they offer it for all different levels, and the clinics set up nicely with their marathon and half-marathon clinics because their members will start off in the learn-to-run clinic and within a few short years are training and competing in the marathon distances. An added bonus is that all the races and events hosted by Peninsula Runners are not profitdriven, Lisa said. “Each dollar we earn in profit from these races will go to a cause because anytime we host an event, it should benefit the communities we serve,” she said. So whether you’re looking to get back into shape or training for a marathon, make Peninsula Runners your running headquarters.

roviding wealth through partnership Getting the right investment advice is a key part of managing wealth. However, it’s just one piece of the puzzle. Managing finances, minimizing taxes, planning for retirement, or structuring an estate in a taxefficient manner may also be required. At RBC Dominion Securities, wealth management is a comprehensive approach to helping you achieve your goals in life. Representing the South Surrey location, team King Clarke Wealth Management works hard to develop close and trusting relationships with every client. “We work with a broad spectrum of people, from young couples and business owners to retirees,” said Heather Clarke, an experienced investment advisor who has worked for RBC Dominion Securities for more than 34 years. Joining Heather is fellow investment advisor and long-time

with you as your full-time personal financial partner

co-worker Claudine King, associate advisor, Blake Robertson and associate, Ruby Emms. “Anyone who feels they have a need for some partnership in regards to their wealth management can benefit from our comprehensive services. We have a number of different investment options that can help you achieve your goals.” Having a wealth of services and experts at the teams’ fingertips is a major advantage for the team and their clients. “We work closely with a team of highly skilled professionals in addressing the most important issues of retirement and estate planning, taxation planning, insurance, credit, lending, education savings and charitable giving,” noted Clarke. “By using the expert team approach, we are able to ensure you are getting the best advice available.” Clarke was a teenager when she first started

with RBC Dominion Securities – a job that has flourished into a satisfying career. “It’s a wonderful company to work for. I’ve been here for 34 years and Claudine for 35– there are definitely plenty of opportunities... it’s what you make of them.” It was last year when the two women decided to form a business partnership – an alliance that has allowed them to “expand their services and investment excellence.” “We really compliment each other’s personality style and investment experiences,” said Clarke. “It was just a natural fit.” In addition to their similar career goals, King and Clarke are working moms –King has two daughters and Clarke has two daughters and one son. While it can be tough at times to find balance, Clarke says she enjoys being able to share her success with her family.

“It’s nice to show we are successful in business and that you have to work hard to achieve it.” Also high on the priority list for King and Clarke is giving back to the community. Recently, Clarke participated in the Canadian Cancer Society ‘Relay for Life’ and was asked to be a public speaker at the event. She is also involved with Soroptimist International and the Kidney Foundation. “We are so fortunate to work here, which is why we are always looking to give back,” she said matter-of-factly. While Clarke often has her hands full with her family, work or philanthropic endeavors, she says the key to happiness and balance is to have a little fun. “You have to enjoy what you’re doing and still have that passion!”I think for both Claudine and I, we still have that passion and enjoy what we’re doing.”

hen buying or selling a home you need to find a real estate consultant who understands your unique requirements and cares about what it is you really want to achieve. For Paula Burns the solution to that problem is actually quite simple. “I really listen to my clients” she says. “I want people to feel that they are being heard and know that I have their best interests at heart”. This mother of two boys has work experience in Claims Adjudication, Client Service Management together with 8 years as a Legal Assistant. Because of her cache of knowledge, the self-professed people person is capable of ensuring that her clients are well protected and fully educated within their decisions. Paula’s management, adjudication and legal background give her the ability and the tools to handle difficult situations objectively and rationally, giving her clients the benefit of good advice. Paula is able to “get the job done” when in negotiations, achieving success and doing her very best to reach the most favourable outcome for her clients. “I am extremely confident in my abilities. I want my clients to be educated, comfortable and feel like they are in good hands. At the end of any deal I hope that we can maintain a relationship based on mutual respect and kindness. This is very important to me. A referral is the very best compliment I can get.” Paula has been a licensed real estate consultant since August, 2008. She has had the benefit of growing with the industry as her mom Diane Oda, was a realtor for 22 years. “We started working together in Tsawwassen where I grew up, but I was always drawn to White Rock.

Jessica Crane

My grandparents and many other family members are from White Rock and I feel we have strong family roots here”. Paula is a lover of the outdoors and the ocean. She now lives in White Rock with her family and has been here for 7 years. “Moving to White Rock was one of the best decisions we made for our family. We love the schools, the community and the people”. For Paula, people are the very heart of her business. “It’s all about getting back to basics and real estate is a face-to-face business. It can be difficult at times for people to come to terms with the many hurdles and financial burdens related to selling and buying real estate. Honesty is imperative and I believe that people respond well to honesty.” When things start to get busy, Paula has some very reliable back-up. “My husband, Darian Deering, is also a licensed realtor and a wonderful assistant.” Paula has extensive knowledge in Strata properties and has assisted in the sale of 29 strata units in 2012 alone. Paula received a Medallion Award this year (Top 10% of Realtors in the Fraser Valley) and has continued to achieve sales awards within Sutton Group for the last 3 years running with top sales volume (units sold) in her office at Sutton Group Westcoast, White Rock in 2012. With so many decisions to make in life, why not cross one off your list and speak with someone who has your best interests at heart!

Strong performances tackling heavy subject matter make for first-rate production

Agnes displays power of pure theatre P

eninsula Productions has taken a bold step in promoting intelligent, compelling theatre in White Rock and South Surrey with its latest play, Agnes of God, running at Coast Capital Playhouse until Saturday, March 9. Done right, John Pielmeier’s challenging, intense drama is guaranteed to put audiences through an emotional wringer – and this production, directed by Wendy Bollard, is sound in all of its artistic choices. That includes finding excellent players for all three roles: Becky Hachey as spiritual, loving novice nun Alex Browne Agnes; Nancy Ebert as her Mother Superior, a pragmatic but conflicted mentor; and Laine Henderson as courtordered psychiatrist Dr. Livingstone, whose clinical approach masks scars left by her own tragedies. A play with the premise that a nun has given birth to a baby – which we are told was found in a wastebasket, shortly afterward, strangled with its umbilical cord – is never going to be an easy sell for audiences accustomed to popular, feel-good stage productions. We should remember, however, that theatre, as well as a purveyor of light-weight entertainments, is a medium with the power to provide emotional catharsis and a challenge to preconceived attitudes.

Dance troupe celebrates past and present of First Nation’s culture

A new take on tradition Alex Browne

TF$$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$A

Arts Reporter

It’s hard now to imagine a time – as high profile as First Nations painting, carving, music and dance is on the Canadian scene today – when it was virtually an underground culture. But that was very much a fact of life after Canada’s Indian Act came into effect in 1876, according to the internationally respected contemporary artist Robert Davidson, Haida master carver, print-maker, painter and jeweller, whose home base and studio is on the Semiahmoo First Nation lands in South Surrey. Under the provisions of the Act, First Nations culture – particularly celebratory ceremonial culture such as feasts, potlatches and pole raisings, and traditional songs and dances – all but disappeared. “We were muted – our ceremonial songs and dances were not allowed to be performed in public,” Davidson said. Even when a ban on such events was lifted in 1954, a close to 80-year gap in cultural development and mentoring seemed to have virtually obliterated the traditions. It’s a very different situation today, says Davidson, who is

› from page 41 ceremonial objects. Rather than simply recreating performances of the past, the group typifies a revitalized process of evolution among First Nations performance groups. “The exciting part is creating new songs and dances within the tradition,” Davidson said. Biggest compliment, he added, is when he hears an elder say, as he did after the debut of a Salmon Dance in Massett in in 1989, “I haven’t seen that done in a long time.” “It’s almost as if we’ve tapped into a cosmic memory.” Davidson said he and his brother have built their songs and dances on pieces passed down to them by their grandmother, Florence Edenshaw Davidson, and other elders. “My grandmother was very patient in teaching the songs to us,” he said. “She taught us as much as she knew.” Haida culture didn’t die out, he said, because, contrary to appearances and

statutes, it never entirely stopped. By the late 1960s, when Davidson’s generation reached adulthood, there was a sense that it was time for Haida culture to reemerge in the public eye. The genesis of the Rainbow Creek Dancers really came at that time, Davidson recalled. Although he was born in 1946, it wasn’t until he was 16 that he first heard his grandparents singing a Haida song, Davidson said. “It was ‘wow!’ – a whole new dimension of what I could be,” he said. “At that time it was shameful to be Native. I don’t say it accusingly – it’s part of history and what things were like. “I feel it’s up to me to move beyond it now, and I’m willing to do whatever is needed so we can be on the other side of the trauma.” For more information on performances and tickets for the Coastal First Nations Dance Festival, visit www. moa.ubc.ca/eventtickets or Damelahamid.ca

Sports Reporter

ach year, a handful of the Semiahmoo Peninsula’s top high-school athletes take their talents to the university stage, both in Canada and the United States. Such is the case again this year – perhaps even more so – with a slew of South Surrey and Cloverdale athletes earning scholarships. Several such athletes are from Semiahmoo Secondary – hurdler Meghan Palesch, who will attend the University of Idaho; middledistance runner Alison Williams, who has committed to the University of Texas; and soccer standouts Emma Fletcher and Sam Dion, who will head to Louisiana State and St. Mary’s College (California), respectively. “I’m super-pumped,” said Williams, a national silver medallist in 2010 in the 800-metre who also claimed a silver medal

in the same event at last year’s B.C. high school championships. Williams has running in her genes, as she is the daughter of Olympians. Her mother, Lynn Kanuka, won a bronze medal in the 3,000-m at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Kyra Steer Angeles, and her father, Paul Williams, competed in three Olympic Games and is a four-time national champion in the men’s 5,000-m. “I’m lucky because my parents never pushed me; it’s always been my decision to train and compete,” the Grade 12 Semiahmoo student said. Palesch, a B.C. high school provincial champion in the 100-m hurdles, fielded

offers from a handful of NCAA schools, and visited the University of Utah before choosing to attend Idaho. Another Surrey track athlete, Kwantlen Park’s Tim Delcourt, also committed to Idaho this month. Fletcher and Dion, Sam Dion meanwhile, are not only classmates, but also teammates with the Vancouver Whitecaps FC youth girls team, and roommates, too. Fletcher is originally from Victoria but lives with Dion’s family in South Surrey in order to play for the Whitecaps. She said she is excited about her upcoming move to Baton Rouge to play for the Louisiana State Tigers. “There are some big opportunities with

college girls’ soccer,” she said. Dion has been fielding scholarship offers since as far back as the fall of 2011, and was recruited by four universities – Washington State, Furman (South Carolina), Princeton and the University of Buffalo. After making official visits to all four schools, she was narrowing down her choices when she was offered a scholarship from a fifth school – St. Mary’s, which is in Moraga, Calif., about 40 minutes east of San Francisco. After a visit, she verbally committed to the school last April, and signed her scholarship Feb. 6 of this year. “I wanted to go somewhere where I’d get lots of minutes on the field,” she said. “I’m excited for the new experiences.” Another Semiahmoo Secondary student – and member of the Whitecaps youth squad › see page 46

Groenewegen signs with Golden Gophers › from page 45 – Aman Shergill, is also moving on to the post-secondary ranks; she’ll suit up next year with the UBC Thunderbirds. Kyra Steer, a standout on local soccer pitches – with Semiahmoo, South Fraser and now, the rebranded Coastal FC – is also set to ply her trade on the university pitch. The Elgin Park Secondary Grade 12 student – who, as a U14 player, led her Semiahmoo squad to a silver medal at national championships – will play next season at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ont. Steer, a defender, had options south of the border but elected to stay in her home country to suit up for the Queen’s Golden Gaels, who are one of Canada’s top university women’s soccer teams, having advanced to the CIS championship game in each of the last three seasons. On the softball diamond, a handful of young players from the White Rock Renegades club – which has sent countless players to the NCAA over the years – are also headed south. Pitcher Sara Groenewegen, who attends Elgin Park Secondary, signed in November with the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers, an NCAA Div. 1 team. Groenewegen has helped the Renegades to three national titles in the last four seasons. She has also played for Team BC at the Western Canadian Summer Games, attended a Canadian junior national team training camp and was named Softball BC’s athlete of the year in 2011. “Sara is a seasoned pitcher whose experience at the international level will allow her to transition into the college game without missing a beat,”

We look forward to her contributions on both sides of the ball.” Fellow Renegade Cheyanne Head, an Earl Marriott student, will also head south next year, after committing to Barry University in Miami Shores, Fla.

Scholarships have extended to field hockey this year, too, as Clayton Heights Secondary Grade 12 student Emma Cochran is set to join the University of Maine Black Bears for the 2013/14 field hockey season. Cochran, a goalkeeper, has been a member of the Surrey Sharks club team since 2006, and has also been a member of Team BC the past four years. In 2011, she was named to Canada’s U17 national team, and was B.C. high school’s top defensive player in 2009/10. Another Surrey student and member of the Surrey Sharks, North Surrey Secondary’s Danielle Aviani, will also play for the Black Bears next season after committing this month.

Premier rugby side falls to 0-2

Bayside blanked by Old Boys Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Prior to the start of the spring rugby schedule, Pat Kearney expected his Bayside Sharks to be competitive with other premier men’s teams. And while he did not expect them to roll through the season undefeated, the cellar is not where the Sharks thought they’d find themselves two games into the BC Premier Rugby League season. “Definitely not,” Kearney said. “I don’t think we’re an eighth-place team, and I know the guys don’t think that either. But that’s where we are – we can’t just sit here and cry about it.” Bayside’s premier side fell to 0-2 after being shut out 15-0 by the UBC Old Boys Saturday at a muddy, rainsoaked Jericho Park in Vancouver. The Old Boys had been in eighth heading into the game, but the win leapfrogged them into seventh, three points up on Bayside. “We have five games left to make up three

points, so we just have to forget about these last two,” Kearney said. “We have three of the five at home, and we’ve proven in the past to be a pretty tough team to beat at South Surrey Athletic Park.” Saturday at Jericho Park – which was the only Lower Mainland premier rugby pitch open, after rain soaked much of the region last week – the Sharks trailed just 3-0 at halftime, but couldn’t muster much offence against the defensively strong Old Boys. “We didn’t have a lot of opportunities in the attacking zone… it was tough to gain past that 50-yard line, and when you keep getting pinned in your own half, it’s tough to put up points,” Kearney said. “It just wasn’t a very pretty 80 minutes of rugby.” The Sharks’ firstdivision team, however, did manage a win at Jericho Park, defeating the UBC Old Boys’ first-division side 38-5 to move to 1-1 on the season.

Semiahmoo association accepting players for third season

Ball hockey set to hit floor Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The Semiahmoo Ball Hockey Association is getting set to hit the floor for its third season next month, and the registration period has been extended past the mid-March deadline for those still wishing to play. Originally, March 15 was to be the drop-dead date for signing up, but league president Rick Duchesne has extended it a few weeks longer. The season will begin April 6 at Centennial Arena in White Rock. Since forming in 2011, the asso-

ciation has grown from less than 100 players to more than 150, and this year Duchesne hopes to reach 200. “Going into our third season, (growth) has been through a lot of word-of-mouth, and people who keep coming back each year,” he said. “We’re still working on the best way to attract players – South Surrey is a very competitive sports (market), especially in the spring, but we’re growing slowly.” Semiahmoo Ball Hockey is made up of seven age divisions: tyke (four to five years old), pea-

nut (six to eight), pup (eight to 10), peewee (10 to 12), minor (12-14), major (14-16) and junior (16-18). The association is now part of the National Ball Hockey Association of Canada, which Duchesne hopes will help attract players, especially in the older divisions, where numbers are fewer. This year, minor, major and junior teams will be eligible to advance to junior nationals, set for Mississauga, Ont. from Aug. 1-4. To register, or for info visit www. semiahmooballhockey.com

Vibrant neighbourhood

Sophisticated living with Bosa’s Pacific Point By Kerry Vital

Bosa Developments is bringing high sophistication to Yaletown with its newest offering, Pacific Point. Not only will buyers be able to experience all the benefits of living in such a vibrant neighbourhood, but they can also sleep soundly with the peace of mind that comes from purchasing a property from real estate icon Nat Bosa. “It’s rare that Nat Bosa puts his name to something,” says George Wong of Magnum Projects. “This is one of those rare opportunities.” Pacific Point started life as a rental property, but Bosa saw the opportunity to purchase the development and turn the homes into condominiums. Everything in the suites is brand-new, including the appliances, decor and plumbing. “This is the first thing that has caught his eye in a long time,” Wong says, adding “he fell in love with the location.” Yaletown is the perfect place for couples and professionals of all ages who are looking to take advantage of the night life and entertainment that is located in the neighbourhood. Wong says that many of the people who have pre-registered to see the homes are current Yaletown residents, young couples and empty nesters. “This is not only sophisticated Yaletown, but it’s grown-up Yaletown,” says Wong. “You cannot find something better.”

This is not only sophisticated Yaletown, but it’s grown-up Yaletown,” says George Wong of Magnum Projects.

Pacific Point features 214 studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom homes in a variety of floorplans ranging from 450 to 1,680 square feet. One of the highlights of the homes is the simply gorgeous views from every suite of False Creek, George Wainborn Park, David Lam Park, English Bay and downtown Vancouver. Inside, each condo is made for luxury, with high-end kitchens, elegant living areas and beautiful bathrooms. The kitchens feature a quartzslab backsplash, polished quartz countertops and stainless-steel appliances, complemented by undercabinet task lighting and imported Italian Armony Cucine cabinetry, which also appears in the bathrooms. Laminate flooring is included throughout most of the main living

OBITUARIES

CORDONIER, Peter Ernest August 3, 1931 February 23, 2013 It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of a wonderful husband of over 51 years to Lena and loving father to Peter Andrew (Ruth) of Ethelbert, Manitoba and Andrea Lynne (Andrew) of Burritt’s Rapids, Ontario. He also leaves his precious grandchildren Matthew, Angelena, Dante, Lorenzo, Isabella and Cristiano, whom he loved dearly. He was predeceased by his parents, Antoinette (1966) and Pierre (1983), his step-mother, Hedwig (2010), and sisters Monica and Yvonne (2004). Peter leaves to mourn sisters Marie, Jeanne (Jim), Leona (Ned), Rita (Bob) and Lorraine (Marv) and brothers Armand (Marg) and Louis (Beth), along with many nieces and nephews. Peter was well-liked by everyone who knew him. He always offered a friendly face and a generous helping hand to those who needed his assistance. He will certainly be missed by his golfing buddies, at football get-togethers, and by the many golden friends he made over the years. Do enjoy those two activities where you are going, honey - we will all miss you so very much. A memorial celebration will be held on Saturday, March 16th at 1:00pm at Victory Memorial Park 14831 - 28 Avenue, South Surrey. Peter is being cremated. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer’s Society, in his name, would be appreciated.

OBITUARIES

Merritt, Orpha Marie Marie passed away peacefully and with graceful dignity at Peace Arch Hospital in the early hours of February 20, 2013 after a sudden and brief illness. Keith, her devoted partner was by her side. She lived 85 very full years, embracing much change with her trademark cheerful optimism. She was born in 1927 to Helen and Percy Galbraith near Camden Township, Ontario and grew up on the idyllic family farm at Varty Lake, near Yarker. She taught elementary school as a young woman and married Strat Merritt in 1951. They settled in Kingston and in 1961, by which time they had three children, the family ventured out west when Strat was transferred with his work with the Penitentiary Service. They established a home in Coquitlam and welcomed two more children to complete the family. The family enjoyed summers in the Okanagan and took many road trips across the country to maintain ties with family and friends in southern Ontario. Later, Strat and Marie relished adventures in their RV with the two youngest children, Sherri and Todd. Marie was known for her meticulous and organized home; foremost, she was devoted to her family and took great delight in recently welcoming her first great grandchild Livia and last year, two new grandsons, Nolan and Calian. Everything she became involved in, from lawn bowling, to her lifelong connection to her sorority Beta Sigma Phi, to her enduring devotion to the United Church, she embraced with enthusiasm. She tackled new activities later in life with equal energy and interest: walking/hiking, cross-country skiing and even backpacking in Europe. She developed a love of travel in the last 20 years and she and Keith ventured to many locales; their last great adventure was a cruise to the Baltics and North Atlantic in September 2012. She proved to be a life long learner and adventurer, and her youthful vitality has left an enduring impression on many friends and acquaintances. Marie was predeceased by her loving husband Gilbert Stratford Merritt in 1992. She is survived by her partner of sixteen years Keith Scholtz; her and Strat’s children Susan (Tom), Robert (Karen), Laurie (Gene), Sherri (Steve), Todd (Eva); grandchildren Jason, Amy (Mike), Nolan, Calian; great-granddaughter Livia . She is also survived by her brother Robert (Joan) and niece Kathy in Ontario. Also saddened greatly by her passing are Keith’s children Jean (Derrick), Michele (Barry), Paul (Anne), Susan (Derek), his nephew Paul (Nel Marie), their families, and relatives in South Africa. Special thanks are extended to Dr. Field for his care of Marie and the whole family over the last difficult weeks. Also, many thanks to all the staff at Peace Arch Hospital who participated in Marie’s care in such a gentle and kind manner. Memorial Service to be held March 9 at 2pm Sunnyside United Church 15639 24th Avenue, Surrey BC. Donations to the Terry Fox Foundation or Sunnyside Church in Marie’s memory would be appreciated by the family. Condolences may also be offered online at: www.firstmemorialfuneral.com
