Four victims on Colebrook since January

Councillors seek raise

More bodies found

Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Surrey’s mayor is considering closed circuit TV cameras (CCTV) and lighting on an isolated stretch of road where four bodies have been found since late January. On Wednesday at 2 a.m., police found two bodies on a stretch of Colebrook Road near 125A Street. The body of a man was found by a patrolling officer, then a search turned up the body of a female. The identities of the victims have not been determined, but Sgt. Jennifer Pound with the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says foul play is suspected. The discovery comes after the body of 26-year-old Jaskaran Singh Sandhu was found in the area on Jan. 28. That murder was gangrelated, police say. On Feb. 24, the charred remains of 29-year-old Amritpal Saran of Delta were found. He was known to police, but investigators don’t believe the killing was gang-related. Pound said the most recent bodies will have to be identified before it’s determined if there’s a connection. It has not been made public where any of the victims were killed. Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts said Wednesday the body count on Colebrook is unacceptable. “It’s absolutely unbelievable,” Watts said. “There’s obviously people that feel that stretch of isolated road is a place to dump a body.” › see page A4

Gordon and Virginia Bylo discuss fallout of treating those with mental illness in our legal system.

Parents speak out

‘Systemic failures’ Kevin Diakiw

A Black Press

South Surrey businessman is worried about his adult son, who – suffering from schizophrenia – has fallen into drug addiction and has been repeatedly thrown in jail. In fact, over the last four years, 30-year-old Brian Bylo has been to jail 30 times. He is not alone. It’s estimated one in three people in Canadian jails suffer from mental illness. Twenty per cent “self-medicate” with alcohol or illicit drugs.

Those with mental illness often end up on the streets, behind bars or in hospital ERs. Increasingly, front-line emergency responders are thrown into the roles of social workers and counsellors, as the mentally ill fall through large gaps in the system. Service providers in Surrey say they are inundated with people in desperate need of support. Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts said the combination of mental illness and addiction is the city’s most important challenge. › see page A10

The policy outlining how pay for White Rock’s civic politicians is determined needs a rethink, council members agree. And at least one councillor is calling for a formula that boosts the salary, replacing a 2007 policy on remuneration and expenses that sets councillor wages at “40 per cent of the estimated average White Rock earnings for the current year.” “Forty per cent implies we only do 40 per cent of the work,” Coun. Helen Fathers told Peace Arch News Monday, after discussing Policy 106 at a meeting of the governance and legislation committee. For 2012 – the latest figures available – it translated to $26,240 for councillors and $59,040 for the Helen Fathers mayor, which is based on 90 per cent of the average wage. “When I tell people what we get and the amount of work that we do, (the reaction is) astonishment,” Fathers said, estimating she puts 40 to 60 hours a week into her role. She asked her peers their Larry Robinson thoughts on increasing the percentage to 60. Mayor Wayne Baldwin balked at the suggestion. “I think that’s too high,” he said. “Forty per cent is probably consistent with other municipalities… pretty much par for the course.” Baldwin suggested the Louise Hutchinson committee ask staff to look into how other similar-sized municipalities pay their councils and compare the figures with White Rock’s to ensure consistency – a move the committee supported unanimously. Coun. Larry Robinson noted the current formula does not work with White Rock’s demographics. “Forty per cent of a demographic that’s 30 per cent retired means there’s not going to be much of an incentive to run for council,” Robinson said. › see page A4

Baldwin criticized for handling of West Beach muffler-site development

Backlash follows project approval Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A project that has been the subject of hot debate in White Rock for the past two years received the go-ahead this week at city hall. Council voted 4-3 Monday evening in favour of giving third and final reading to a zoning bylaw amendment that accommodates the development of Marine Terraces, a commercial/residential complex at the corner of Oxford Street and Marine Drive. The vote followed a failed motion by Coun. Helen Fathers to have the project deferred. While Couns. Al Campbell and Louise Hutchinson agreed with Fathers, Mayor Wayne Baldwin and Couns. Bill Lawrence, Larry Robinson and Grant Meyer did not.

“It’s within the height limit, it’s less units than originally planned… I thought that met the concerns of quite a few of the people,” Meyer told Peace Arch News after the vote. The project, to be built on the former White Rock Mufflers site and two lots on Buena Vista Avenue, was first proposed in January 2011. From the get-go, neighbours expressed concerns over height, view impacts, density and potential impact to traffic. That fall, after months of discussion and revisions, the then-council approved amendments that moved the development forward. Shortly after, the site was flipped and the new owner, Richmond-based LLW Holdings Ltd., asked for permission to reduce the number of residential units, add a fifth build-

ing and increase parking. LLW also asked to increase the height of one building by nearly two feet, to offset a height difference created by a city miscalculation of the floodplain. Those amendments went to public hearing last month, at which time the developer conceded the extra height and removed the fifth building from the plans. In opposing the latest amendments, Campbell described the project as “troubling, to say the least,” and stated he was against anything that strayed from the original proposal. Baldwin came under fire from council attendees after he spoke to comments made by residents at the Feb. 25 public hearing, and for criticizing the previous council. Baldwin described residents’ claims the

city’s Official Community Plan was not followed as “absolutely incorrect.” He also rejected comments that council acted without transparency. Comments from the gallery after the vote included, “They don’t listen to the people,” “Money and greed, money and greed” and, “He is the boss – remember that.” Robinson admonished irate attendees. “If this is going to be a civil meeting and you expect us to act responsibly, you should do the same,” he said. Fathers, however, criticized Baldwin for attacking the former council. “It really disappoints me that you continually malign the last council,” she said. “As the mayor, it’s wrong.”

Drivers who cross the new Port Mann Bridge and still haven’t signed on to the TReO electronic tolling system are being offered another round of incentives to register. More than 750,000 drivers signed up by the end of February, when an offer of half-price tolls for the rest of the year expired. Those who didn’t register by then have a week to pay the $3 toll before an extra $2.30 processing fee takes effect. But holdouts who sign up by the end of June will get a rebate of any processing fees they rang up in the previous 30 days as a credit on their account. New registrants also get a credit for two free trips. The processing fee is to recoup the costs of confirming the driver’s address and mailing the invoice. “Our hope is that no one is charged that fee either because they’re registered or they’re taking advantage of the payment methods we have,” Transportation Investment Corp. spokesman Max Logan said. He said TReO registrants now make up more than 80 per cent of bridge users. The latest offer is another carrot for people who may be new arrivals in the region or just got a driver’s licence. Logan said he’s not concerned that some drivers may try to foil bridge cameras and avoid paying to cross the Port Mann. “The cameras are very sophisticated, they’re high-powered and they use infrared as well,” he said. “They can read licence plates whether they’re dirty or covered.” Any attempt to obscure a licence plate can also result in a ticket for those caught by the RCMP. Meanwhile, drivers who got a credit for 20 free trips have until the end of May to use up the $30 value.

Meyer shocked at proposed raise › from page A1 Coun. Louise Hutchinson described the use of average earnings as “a very bad marker,” and said she believes councillors’ pay should be half of what the mayor receives. The politicians serve approximately 20,000 residents living in the city’s 5.13 square kilometres. A comparison of 2010 figures with those of Langley City and Port Moody politicians – two communities White Rock staff will be looking at in their review – puts White Rock in the middle in terms of councillor wages, and on the low end for the mayor’s. Langley City councillors – representing 25,000 people in 10 square kilometres – earned between $28,660 and $32,243 that year; the mayor received $71,649. In Port Moody – where residents number about 34,000 in 26 square kilometres – the councillors earned $24,108 in 2010; the mayor, $70,246. White Rock Coun. Grant Meyer did not comment during Monday’s meeting, but later told Peace Arch News that there is “no way” he’d vote for a raise. He said he was stunned when Fathers suggested 60 per cent. “I thought, my god, that’s a 50 per cent pay raise,” he said.

Twelve-storey complex ‘not a good fit’ committee hears

Vidal project moves ahead Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A 12-storey residential complex proposed for White Rock’s Vidal Street is not a good fit for the area, the city’s land-use committee heard Monday. And while three of seven committee members agreed with the take, the project will proceed to council. The committee – comprised of council members – voted 4-3 in favour of recommending council give first and second reading to an Official Community Plan amendment, a zoning amendment bylaw and a land-use contract discharge bylaw that would facilitate the development of 12 townhouse units and 97 apartments at 14671519 Vidal St. Staff recommended rejecting the project based on concerns with the proposed heights and densities for the area, the loss of

mature trees that would result, the potential for traffic increase and the necessary relocation of a dedicated, city-owned pathway. “There’s a number of planning issues that we’ve identified,” Paul Stanton, the city’s director of planning and development services, said. “There is a concern that it’s contrary to the OCP.” In explaining his motion to move the project forward, Coun. Larry Robinson cited statistics in Metro Vancouver’s growth strategy that indicate an additional 575,000 more housing units will be needed in the region by 2041. White Rock’s population is projected to grow to 27,000 by that time, and building “three-storey, pricey townhouses” is “not helpful,” he said. Coun. Louise Hutchinson agreed such projects are needed moving forward, and that the days of three-storey developments in

White Rock “are numbered.” In opposing the motion, Couns. Al Campbell and Helen Fathers and Mayor Wayne Baldwin described the project as premature and out of place for the Everall Neighbourhood Area, for which policies call for the retention of as many mature trees as possible. Baldwin said while he liked the developer’s reputation and the look of the project, it is a plan more suited for “five, 10 years down the road, maybe 20.” Fathers cited community response received at a public information meeting on the plans in explaining her no vote. Sixtyseven per cent of respondents did not think it suited the neighbourhood, she said. If the recommendations receive first and second reading at council, the proposal will proceed to public hearing.

Pier to close for repairs next week A White Rock landmark popular amongst exercise enthusiasts and visitors alike will be closed next week and intermittently through mid-May. City communications co-ordinator Jamie Leggatt confirmed Tuesday that the closure is to facilitate the repair and replacement of damaged piles and crossbraces; work that was identified as necessary during a 2010 inspection.

Council voted Feb. 25 to proceed with the work, estimated to cost $405,000. In all, 16 piles are being stabilized in the process, with the project to take no more than 45 days in all. March 18-25, crews will be conducting pile-driving using a large barge. The work is dependent on high tide and will be noisy, Leggatt said. The work is expected to be completed by May 17.

editorial

Money shan’t motivate them

W

hite Rock Mayor Wayne Baldwin is right when he suggests contemplating an increase in council remuneration is a touchy subject. Baldwin served as city manager for many years before retiring and, subsequently, being voted into the mayor’s chair. He knows from experience the public has a limited tolerance for guardians of the public purse setting their own salaries – particularly when there is any talk of an increase. It’s likely most of the electorate wouldn’t object to the current staff review of the going rate of compensation for elected officials, particularly if, as council has agreed and directed, the communities selected for comparison are similar in size to White Rock. If findings hold true to 2010 figures, compensation for serving White Rock’s 20,000 residents sits somewhere in a middle range between comparable communities Langley City, serving 25,000, and Port Moody, serving 34,000. What some White Rock politicians seem to be losing sight of is the fact that standing for office and being elected is a matter of community service, first and foremost. Compensation must be just what the word suggests – a partial recompense for the altruistic sacrifice of representing your fellow citizens. Coun. Helen Fathers thinks council’s compensation should be raised to 60 per cent of the average estimated earnings in the city, because this would be more reflective of the amount of hours she puts in for the city. Without denigrating Fathers’ work on behalf of the community – indeed the second-term councillor’s efforts are more visible than most – any one of us can put in any number of extra hours beyond what our job specifies; but if some compensation for those hours has not been negotiated and agreed upon, our employer can be forgiven for considering it “volunteered” time. And Coun. Larry Robinson has the cart before the horse when he says that pegging a politicians’ compensation at 40 per cent of earnings in the city “means there’s not going to be much of an incentive to run for council.” The incentive, surely – and the reason nine candidates battled for the most recently available single seat on council in last fall’s byelection – is having a vision for the future of White Rock and a willingness to work for it in spite of personal cost.

estimated two days. It may have been the intended catch of that leg-hold trap. Or, it may have been the victim of someone trying to rid the area of the critters. No one knows who set those metal jaws. There may be some justification for lowering the local coyote population; however, an underlying issue once again – not unlike the controversial blueberry cannons – is the conflict posed by the urban/rural interface. As the Association for the Protection of Fur-Bearing Animals (APFBA) points out, these traps are being set out here, in areas where there are domestic pets and kids. There are documented cases of both being unintended victims, especially dogs. Short of a full ban, the association is calling for changes to trapping laws, such as the requirement of warning signage, and tags or serial numbers on the traps, so the owner can be identified. It’s not uncommon for cities to call in trappers to get rid of nuisance beavers that are flooding roads and waterways. For modern civic governments to employ or condone this archaic method is simply not acceptable, especially when humane alternatives exist. Abbotsford city council recently, and courageously, passed a bylaw banning shark fin sales and products in this community. Once again, they should take a leadership role, pass the regulations the APFBA suggests, and ultimately, relegate body-gripping traps to the dark closet of history.

Neighbourly question Editor: I would like to comment on the full page ad taken out by the City of Surrey – City Boulevard Trees and You – in Tuesday’s paper. I am a homeowner in South Surrey and do not have sidewalks on either side of our streets. When I walk my dog, a neighbour requested that I do not allow my dog to do her business on his lawn. My opinion has always been that as we do not have sidewalks, the first few feet of a property is not owned by the homeowner but by the city. My question is: Does the property owner have the right to request that I do not allow my dog to do her business? I always pick up after my dog, so that is not an issue. But if my dog wants to urinate, does she have the right to pee on my neighbour’s grass? Theresa Delaney, Surrey

Not only do the trains passing through White Rock carry coal but other liquid products that, if they fell into Semiahmoo Bay because of a derailment, would absolutely pollute the bay for years to come. It make no sense for additional coal cars to come through our beautiful city. There is already an easement along the hydro line to the east of us that would take their trains away from the ocean front. Moving the tracks to this area would facilitate all concerned. Jack Scott, White Rock

Misplaced priorities Editor: A recent announcement by our premier and the BC Liberal party to donate $12 million to an event hosting of the Times of India Film Awards is nothing more than a slap in the face to our film industry. This industry is suffering badly due to the meager tax concessions offered by the BC Liberals, versus those provided in other parts of Canada. Our film studios are all but vacant, and the backlog of projects

is quickly disappearing. Our film industry has provided thousands of jobs in our economy for many years, yet the government of the day had chosen to donate $12 million of taxpayers’ money to a foreign entity, over our homegrown North American enterprise. In return, it is reported that one Indian film will be made here, using local crews, in the coming year. This, out of hundreds of Indian films made every year in India. What a pathetic return on our dollars donated. When is this waste of money going to stop, and funds spent where they actually benefit B.C. taxpayers? J. Conley, Surrey

Vindication over transit Editor: Re: Rapid-bus line eyed in south, March 7. As an independent candidate in the last civic election, I was vilified by the mayor and her team for claiming that LRT (light-rail transit) cost as much as SkyTrain but would be slower, with half the capacity. So, I was delighted to see the report in your paper regarding the TransLink study which completely supports my assertion. Well, I obviously lost at the polls, but at least I can say, “I told you so!” Paul Griffin, Surrey

Solutions for parents who work Editor: Re: No easy solution for child-care conundrum, March 7. We recognize the challenges faced by parents struggling to balance raising a family with pursuing work and training opportunities. Our BC Early Years Strategy is designed to support choice and help those parents by improving the quality and availability of early years programs and services. Under this strategy, we will create up to 13,000 new child-care spaces over the next eight years. Our focus is on child care in underserved areas and on school grounds, where children can smoothly transition from early years programs to the classroom to after-school care. Starting in 2015, a BC Early Childhood Tax Benefit will help make child care more affordable. The benefit will provide $146 million annually – up to $660 a year per child – to 180,000 families with young children. A new Provincial Office for Early Years will work with communities to give families support and services. We will also develop a child-care registry to make better information about child-care spaces available.

These measures build on the $1 billion per year government now invests in child care, early learning and development programs, and on our $327-million annual investment in full-day kindergarten for five-year-olds. We agree with columnist Melissa Smalley that there is no quick fix. That’s why we invest in a range of meaningful, evidence-based early childhood supports. Families Minister Stephanie Cadieux, Surrey n There was a time, not that long ago, when children were raised by the people who created them – their parents – instead of some paid strangers. Parents are now protesting that they can’t afford day care, and are calling on the government – read, you and I – to provide day care for $10 a day. Many are demanding $7-a-day day care as is delivered in Quebec, and some are even insisting on free child care. Instead of commanding the government to pay for it, they should coerce the people who forced them to have children that they couldn’t afford to pay for it. Jerry Steinberg, Surrey

Notice of Pier Closure March 18 to 26 In order to improve public safety and ensure the continued use of the pier, construction upgrades to repair and replace damaged piles and cross-braces will take place from March 18 to May 17, 2013 with intermittent pier closures.

A large rock and broken glass outside the Berezan Liquor Store Tuesday.

Thieves hit liquor store Surrey RCMP are searching for two male suspects who broke into a South Surrey liquor store early Tuesday morning. Police were called to the 15300block of 24 Avenue just before 1 a.m. after an alarm was triggered at the Berezan Liquor Store. Mounties arrived on scene to find broken glass at both the front entrance and rear side of the store. Later Tuesday morning, a large rock could still be seen steps away from the liquor store’s entrance, where a small upper window was smashed.

From March 18 to 26 the pier will be closed to the public while crews conduct pile driving through the use of a large barge. Due to the barge location and the nature of the work, this phase of construction is dependent on high tides and will have noise associated with it. We recognize the inconvenience associated with the pier upgrade and greatly appreciate your patience during this time.

Surveillance video from the liquor store shows one male suspect entering the liquor store, grabbing a small amount of alcohol and cigarettes, while the other waits outside, Cpl. Bert Paquet told Peace Arch News Wednesday. “All that trouble for a few bottles and a couple of packs of cigarettes,” he said. Paquet said police will be sending the video to their forensics team in order to gain a clearer image of the suspects. Anyone with information is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604599-0502.

and having his ID heavily scrutinized, a successful private investment banker walks down a long corridor to a small viewing room inside the Fraser Valley Regional Correctional Facility. Through heavily scratched glass, he sees his son, Brian, in an orange jumpsuit, sitting passively and completely devoid of emotion – characteristics of his mental-heath disorder. It pains Gordon Bylo to see his son locked up, when he can see in Brian’s eyes that he clearly belongs in a hospital. Gordon blames a series of systemic failures for ensuring Brian is being treated like a criminal, rather than a patient. Twelve years ago, Brian was every parent’s dream child. The B+ Holy Cross High School student was playing district-level soccer, where he was his group’s leader, an all-star midfielder and a model player. He dreamed of pursuing a career in sales and marketing. Brian remained a rising star until Grade 12. “Midway through the year, we saw him retreating, grades starting to fall, and delays in the morning getting out to school,” Gordon remembers. Mother Virginia thought it was a result of his “teenage-hood.” “I missed, in hindsight, some important signs,” Virginia says. Brian walked in the family’s

n its early days, it was the place holidaymakers arrived on the ‘Campers’ Special,’ the place children waited to meet fathers commuting from their daily jobs in Vancouver on the ‘Daddy Train.’ In the 1930s, merrymakers would alight from the train and head across the street to the Blue Moon dance hall and, by the end of the decade, the platform became the scene of impassioned farewells as soldiers headed off to war. The former Great Northern station on Marine Drive, White Rock’s most prominent historic landmark – outside of the pier and the bleached boulder itself – turns 100 this year. To celebrate the centenary of their historic venue, White Rock

Museum and Archives staff are busy preparing a special exhibit which will open to the public May 4, and is scheduled to run through the summer. The museum’s new Collections and Exhibits co-ordinator, Amanda

Sittrop, said she’s been happy with response to requests for photos, artifacts and memories relating to the multiple roles the station has played in the community. The Burnaby-raised Sittrop said she’s been enjoying putting

together her first major show since coming to the museum late last year from the Canmore Museum and Geoscience Centre in Alberta, where she was collections and digitization manager. Like Canmore, White Rock’s

museum is strongly rooted in its community, Sittrop said. “I’ve always loved history,” she added, noting she was a frequent volunteer at the equally community and pioneer-oriented Burnaby Village Museum while she was growing up, before taking her bachelors degree in the history of art and religious studies at the University of Victoria, and her masters in museum management and curatorship at Sir Sandford Fleming College in Ontario. As the exhibition will illustrate, White Rock’s station has been a consistent hub of local life, both in its days as the GN depot, and in its post-railway life as the ‘Station Arts Centre’ headquarters for the Community Arts Council in the late 1970s and 1980s, and the home › see page A12

Stories ‘help make a connection’ › from page A11 of the museum since the early 1990s. Continuing showpiece for the museum is the permanent exhibit recreating the station office in its prime – which will be joined by the station’s original platform cart, piled high with authentic luggage. “We have 3D cut-outs and text panels including many stories from the community – and photos and artifacts to enliven the stories,” she said. “We’re celebrating 100 years of a building that helped build the community of White Rock,” she added, noting she is interested in the different ways people experienced the city through the station. It’s famously recalled that Elvis Presley sat on the train in White Rock Station in 1957 en route to a performance in Vancouver, without venturing onto the platform to meet enthusiastic fans. But for local residents in the station’s heyday, even ordinary arrivals and departures had become almost the equivalent of theatre, Sittrop said. “One lady who lives on Victoria Avenue remembers her mother building their cottage in 1926. She would hear the train whistle all the way up at her home.” Another resident, Sittrop said, remembers that as a child, the

Dozens of people pack the Great Northern station on Marine Drive. curfew was the departure of the last train of the day from the depot. Even with the growth of opposition to the railway in recent years, there’s still a palpable sense of excitement around the arrival of trains, Sittrop noted. “There are still people today who go down to Marine Drive to watch the trains go by.” There’s no doubt the arrival of the railway in 1909 had a huge impact on the growth of the community, which was formalized with the construction of the station building in 1913, Sittrop said. Even though land was offered very cheaply, real-estate fortunes were made virtually overnight. “The population jumped from seven permanent residents

to 400,” she said. “A lot of the people living here worked on the railway, but once people started settling, they needed stores and restaurants.” Memories gathered for the upcoming show are not simply railway-oriented, Sittrop said. “I had one woman who told me she came up here from Idaho during the Second World War – her father had served in the war, and was being treated for injuries at the Shaughnessy Hospital and she was on her way to visit him,” she said. “She distinctly remembers waves from the bay crashing up onto the tracks. A six- to seven year-old girl being terrified of a big body of water – stories like that, of being a child and being scared of things, help make a connection.”

Rigby & Beth Le Drew Volunteers

“ I did the volunteer training a year ago and started on a journey that has allowed me to become involved in the lives of many terrific people. With a little Tibetan Spaniel named Rigby we began visiting the Hospice. As I watched the faces of the clients light up when Rigby arrived, I soon recognized that it was my heart that was warmed with each visit. Becoming a volunteer for Hospice has given Rigby and me an opportunity to not only be part of the community but part of a ‘family’ of very caring men and women.”

Tamanawis Secondary student Mariyam Muhammad receives her medal from Alex Atamanenko, MP for B.C. Southern Interior on March 2.

Strong local presence at provincial competition

Peninsula students rank high at debates There was no arguing over the strong Semiahmoo Peninsula presence at the 2013 Law Foundation Cup early this month. Students from Grade 8 and up travelled to Trail for the provincial debate championships, held at JL Crowe Secondary and St. Michael’s Catholic Elementary schools March 1-2. It was well worth the trip to the Kootenay region, with a number of Peninsula students placing high in the competition. In the Novice Division, Grade 8s Veer Shete and Amy Doerksen of Southridge School came in second and sixth place, respectively. In the team category, the duo came in second place. In the junior division, which included Grades 9 and 10, Mariyam Muhammad of Tamanawis Secondary came in seventh place, provincially. Surrey was strongly represented by

Fraser Heights Secondary students Fredrick Ni, Nicolas Wicaksono and Vicky Liu. Ni, who was the highest-scoring Grade 9 in the Lower Mainland East Region, will represent B.C. at the National Junior High Debating Championships this spring. Wicaksono came in 12th place in the province individually, and placed eighth with partner Vicky Liu in the team division. Robert Sheardown of R.E. Mountain Secondary came in 8th place provincially in the Senior Division. In that same division, schoolmates Cameron Wood and Ginny Hsiang placed 10th in the province as a team, and will be alternates to represent B.C. at the next school year’s National Senior High Debating Championships.

Shayne Smith tells Surrey students there’s nothing they can’t achieve

Only limits ‘are ones we put on ourselves’ Sheila Reynolds

A

Black Press

dmit it, Shayne Smith tells his listeners. When you first see him, you feel sorry for him or you think he’s weird looking or even repulsive. Tell the truth, he urges, he can take it. The 24-year-old has pretty much heard it all. Last week, he reciprocated that honesty and shared some stories, blunt insight and hard-hitting inspiration with students at Sullivan Heights Secondary. From his wheelchair, Smith took several classes of Grade 10 students back in time to when he was just four months old. It was 1988, and his mom was driving him to day care when she noticed a red mark on his arm. She looked away, thinking it was nothing. Minutes later, she noticed more spots. Then more. “Within that 10-minute drive, I was no longer white,” Smith told the room of teens. “I was black and red.” By the time he got to hospital, he was gasping for air. “My baby’s dying!” his mom shouted at the ER to whomever would listen. The eventual diagnosis, after a seizure-filled transfer to a second hospital, was that Smith had a rare form of meningitis that affected his blood flow, forcing the amputation of several body parts. Doctors told his mom, who slept Shayne’s side in hospital for eight months, that her son had less than a two per cent chance of survival.

That was enough for her. She fought for his care, then and throughout his challenging upbringing. “So, why should you guys care?” Smith asked Sullivan students. “I’m here to tell you that you are the ones who decide what happens to you. The only limits we have are the ones we put on ourselves.” Today, with no legs, one hand missing, partial fingers on the other hand and a body blanketed in scars, Smith says he’s the poster child for someone who shouldn’t have achieved much in life. An energetic kid, he began playing wheelchair basketball at age eight. It took four years before he scored his first basket. “Why? Because I never gave up. I never quit. I kept going.” By 14, he was kicked out of his basketball league. He was too good. Officials placed him on a team with 18- to 22-year-olds.

By the next year, he was on the Canadian Junior wheelchair basketball squad – one of the youngest players ever. He went on to play at two Canada Games, one of which he was not only chosen captain by his teammates, but represented Team Ontario and carried the flag in the opening ceremony. “That’s a long way from that kid who was told he wasn’t going to amount to anything, huh?” He told students that they have to believe they’re the best at everything they do, and that failing or facing challenges makes success that much sweeter. “There’s nothing that we cannot achieve.” Sponsored by Tutor Doctor, Smith spoke at Sullivan Heights, Pacific Academy and several other venues as part of the Why Factor program, which promotes a better life through confidence-raising education.

Do you suffer from dry, red, watery eyes?

Now you are probably wondering why I don’t support the home team and watch The Real Housewives of Vancouver. Well, those women are absolutely unwatchable. They are vicious, catty, nasty …I can’t use the “B” word as this is a community newspaper. At least my gals in Cali have some endearing qualities…well, sort of. So I decided to bring the concept home to beautiful White Rock/South Surrey and present our Zoomer version of The Real Housewives of White Rock. Our launch will be on March 21 when we will host a free fashion show at Fashion on the Edge at #7A – 15223 Pacific Avenue at 6:30 p.m. The show will feature real women wearing real clothes. The models are all CARP members and range in age from 59 to 74. They come in all shapes and sizes and there will be no silicone in sight. Please join us and revel in the beauty of real women. There will be no cat-fights, no claws out… and no need for absolution. April Lewis is the local communications director for CARP, a national group committed to a ‘New Vision of Aging for Canada.’ She writes monthly.

It pay$ Healthy habits catching on to visit H&R Block. Peninsula challenger enlisting help of young daughters

Melissa Smalley Staff Reporter

It’s a family affair for Peninsula Green Fighter Jamie Leggatt. As the Kin’s Green Fighters contestant for White Rock/ South Surrey, Leggatt has been working hard at maintaining a healthy diet and exercising regularly. And as a result, Leggatt said her two young daughters are also reaping the health benefits. “Since I have to be organized and make my own lunches, I’ve been making the kids’ lunches at the same time, so I think they’re getting healthier lunches too,” she said. “It’s nice knowing that we’re all eating better.” Since the Green Fighter’s contest launched March 1 – pitting Leggatt against 13 other competitors from around the Lower Mainland – she said she has already noticed an improvement in how she feels. “Some of my clothes are fitting a little looser, too,” she said. Over the weekend, Leggatt took part in the first of three in-store challenges, where she and her daughters collected sticky-notes from Kin’s shoppers, pledging to change one thing about their lifestyle for the better. They also collected donations for the Canadian Cancer Society,

Music Marathon on Sept. 29

‘Cultural miles’ featured in run If running is part of your new healthy outlook for 2013, it might be time to consider conquering a distance running event, such as the Surrey World Music Marathon. The marathon takes place Sept. 29, and registration is open now to help motivate those embarking on new fitness regimes. There will be different distances for all fitness levels, including the full marathon (42 kilometers), a halfmarathon (21 kms), or the 5K walk/run, relay. It also features unique themed “cultural miles,” with musical acts from around the world performing at designated spots. This year’s route will also see a change in the route from the inaugural event in 2012, with the full and halfmarathons winding their way the green scenery of Surrey’s Green Timbers Urban

Forest. “The new route, combined with the expanded cultural mile component, promises to make the 2013 Surrey World Music Marathon one of the ‘must do’ running events of the year,” said event chair Elizabeth Model. To take advantage of early bird discount registration for the full, half, relay, 5K or kids’ event, visit www. surreymarathon.com Organizers offer the following tips for getting started towards a new fitness regime: • Focus on the positive. Think about what you’re already doing well and try to do it better. • Make daily challenges. Instead of having one big goal, make daily ones that focus on the actions you need to take.  • Invest time in getting ready. Set aside time in your schedule to begin your running program. -Black Press

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

‘God’s Little Acre’ looks to expand

Dan Ferguson Staff Reporter

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

Seniors-assistance program receives $1-million boost

Cruise! Abuse hotline expanded

ALL TAXES & FEES INCLUDED

Roundtrip Vancouver, no flying!

April 18 - Holland America Zaandam. Board in Vancouver & cruise to Maui, Hilo, Kauai, Honolulu (2 days), Victoria and back to Vancouver!

Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – The B.C. government has announced a $1-million boost to its seniors’ abuse protection programs, including extending the hours for a hotline to report suspicions of abuse or neglect. The bulk of the funding is to allow the Vancouver-based Seniors Abuse and Information Line to extend its hours to 12 hours a day, seven days a week. It offers information, advice and emotional support for seniors and their friends and relatives who suspect elderly people are being abused or taken advantage of. The number is 604-437-1940 in Metro Vancouver and toll-free province-wide at 1-866-437-1940. Saanich councillor and former MLA Susan Brice, a volunteer with the seniors’ support organization Silver Threads, said members see cases of abuse frequently. “It’s the elderly woman who comes to her craft class with unexplained bruises,” Brice said. “It’s the couple who lose thousands of dollars through a telemarketing scam. And it’s the quiet-speaking gentleman, who while living with family, appears neglected and uncared for.” Minister of State for Seniors Ralph Sultan said he has encountered abuse and exploitation of

Saanich Coun. Susan Brice, Parksville-Qualicum MLA Ron Cantelon and Minister for Seniors Ralph Sultan announce new funding. seniors in his own family, and it comes up frequently as he has travelled B.C. asking seniors and their caregivers what they need from government. In an interview, Sultan acknowledged that the funding is a modest effort to bolster volunteer efforts. “It is a beginning step, but it also reflects the fact that this problem can not be solved topdown,” Sultan said. “It will have to be solved bottom-up by mobilizing many different organizations around the province.” The B.C. government also provided $1.4 million last year to the B.C. Association of Community

Response Networks, for prevention and education to reduce elder abuse and neglect. Katrine Conroy, NDP critic for seniors, said she agrees with extra support for the information line, which is supported by lawyers and other experts to help seniors find help. “Anything that’s done to eliminate elder abuse is a good thing,” Conroy said. “The community resource networks are really good organizations.” Sultan said the advocate is to help develop policies to protect seniors, and a study will provide the information needed to do that.

Government aims to save $26 million

Transportation Minister Mary Polak released the government’s Mary Polak consultation File photo transportation report last Ferry passengers on the deck watch their departure from the minister week on Tsawwassen terminal en route to Swartz Bay. ways to save ries cut sailings on the Duke in the evenings. $26 million on operations by NDP transportation critic 2016.

Most called for ferries to be funded by all B.C. taxpayers or by the users themselves. A call for “innovative ideas” also produced few surprises. The top suggestion in consultation meetings and written feedback was to reduce fares to increase ridership, an experiment that BC Ferries has tried several times on major routes with no success. BC Ferries has found that ferry use is declining on B.C.’s free inland ferries and other jurisdictions such as Washington state, as people choose to travel less because of the cost of fuel and other factors.

John Doyle ends term in May

Auditor General leaving Tom Fletcher Black Press

Auditor General John Doyle is finished his sixyear term on May 28, and his successor will likely have a single term of eight years. MLAs have worked out a truce in the dispute that arose when Doyle’s request for a second sixyear term was rejected by the government majority on the selection committee. The committee then offered him a two-year sion, but Doyle accepted

job in his native Australia instead. Doyle had initially indicated he would stay on the job until next summer, when he takes up duties as auditor general for the Australian state of Victoria. Amendments presented in the legislature Monday allow the committee to recommend an acting auditor general by John Doyle auditor general unanimous consent, and change the term for the next full-time auditor. exten- An appointment for the eighta new year term would be left to a new

government elected May 14. Finance Minister Mike de Jong said the rules don’t allow a new auditor to be appointed until the current one is finished. He said an agreement has been worked out with the NDP opposition to appoint a temporary replacement before the election. Premier Christy Clark suggested the eight-year, non-renewable term to avoid the problem of having a sitting government having to decide on reappointing its independent financial critic. The federal auditor general serves one 10-year term with no option for renewal.

New measures proposed by Victoria Police Chief

Proposal to confiscate drivers’ phones rejected Tom Fletcher Black Press

Talking and texting behind the wheel continues to be a major road safety problem, but Attorney General Shirley Bond has rejected raising fines or taking away mobile phones to deal with the problem. The new measures were suggested last week by Victoria Police Chief Jamie Graham, after an enforcement blitz by B.C. police forces resulted in about 6,000 tickets being issued in February.

Graham, chair of the B.C. Association of Police Chiefs’ traffic safety committee, suggested police should also have the authority to seize a phone for 24 hours for a first offence, and for several days for repeat offences. Graham also referred to $350 fines available for other traffic safety violations. The current fine for mobile-phone use while driving is $167. “I’m certainly not considering the seizure of cellphones,” Bond said Monday. “I am concerned, though, that we continue to see distracted driv-

Fare evaders decreased

Transit cheats slow to pay Jeff Nagel Black Press

Most transit fare cheaters busted by police still aren’t paying their $173 fines to TransLink despite new powers to punish them that took effect last fall. TransLink says about 20 per cent of the 16,000 fare evaders caught and ticketed between Sept. 4 and the end of February have now paid their fines. That’s up a bit from the roughly 16 per cent payment rate in past years when TransLink had no way to enforce payment. The provincial government last spring passed Bill 51, which makes ICBC block auto insurance and driver’s licence renewals for fare evaders who don’t pay fines, and lets TransLink dispatch bill collectors as well. TransLink spokesman Derek Zabel said the payment rate may climb higher because nonpaying riders have 90 days to pay and those fined in December, January or February would still have had time when the end-ofFebruary statistics were compiled. “Bill 51 needs to be in place for more than a year for us to start to see any sort of trends and get a good understanding of what’s happening out there,” Zabel said. He said 35 per cent of the fines issued have been sent to a collections agency, while TransLink has asked ICBC to bar renewals for 583 others so far. Fare evasion fines go up $40 if they’re not paid within six months and they go up $100 if unpaid after a year. Transit Police

conducted 1.15 million fare checks from September to the end of February – 200,000 more than the same period of the previous year – but 2,000 fewer tickets were issued. Zabel said that suggests more passengers are now paying their fares instead of risking a ticket and fare evasion rates may be dropping. “It shows you that Bill 51 is working, the message is getting out there,” he said. “It was designed to get people to pay their fare. We don’t want to be out there writing millions of tickets and collecting millions of dollars in fine revenue.” TransLink now gets paid fines, which used to be collected by the province. TransLink will introduce its new Compass smart card later this year as fare gates being installed are activated. That will also reduce the scope for fare evasion, according to Zabel. Regular riders won’t have to go to a store to buy their monthly fare cards or FareSaver tickets either. Instead they can add more cash to their Compass card at any time, or program it to automatically load more money on when the cash remaining gets below a certain level. Zabel said someone who loses a registered Compass card won’t be out the cost of their monthly pass, as is the case now. The old card will be deactivated so nobody who finds it can use it and the remaining credit will be transferred to the replacement card.

ing in the province.” Bond said taking away cellphones would create privacy problems, and she is also not convinced that increasing fines would have the desired effect. “It’s not unlike seat belts,” Bond said. “It took a long time for people in our province to make that a normal habit.” B.C. imposed new Motor Vehicle Act regulations against using hand-held mobile devices in January 2010.

Jeff Nagel Black Press

That expansion spending equates to a need for TransLink to raise an extra $175 to $700 million per year to fund its share of capital costs, he said, assuming the federal and provincial governments still contribute large shares as well. TransLink will lay out a plan on transit expansions, such as the Vancouver and Surrey extensions, over the next 15 years, with costs. Delta Mayor Lois Jackson noted $2.3 billion in capital spending divided by 2.3 million residents is the equivalent of $10,000 per capita, adding that is “not acceptable by any standpoint.” Surrey Mayor and committee chair Dianne Watts reminded her the $2.3 billion doesn’t count senior government contributions. Paddon also pointed out some of TransLink’s success depends on the decisions of individual cities to densify housing on transit corridors to increase ridership. He showed aerial photos of some original Expo Line SkyTrain stations in east Vancouver, still surrounded by low-density single-family houses after more than 25 years. The meeting happened after mayors council chair Richard Walton said he was disappointed with the provincial government’s lack of response to the calls for funding reform.

Theatre group to stage Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night on waterfront

Arts Reporter

Erin Cebula, Spokesperson

heatre fans had best position themselves near the starting blocks in time for Monday, June 24 at 8 a.m. That’s the time that tickets go on sale to the general public for Beach House Theatre’s second season of Shakespearian comedy and romance at Crescent Beach, through the society’s website (www. beachhousetheatre.org). Almost the only complaint about last year’s brilliant, staggeringly well-received production of the Bard’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream was that, only a few days after tickets went on sale, there was nary one to be had, for love or money. ❝When you Beach House stage live founders and directors Shakespeare, Candace Radcliffe and you want people Rick Harmon say it’s to connect disappointing to them, too, that more people with it.❞ didn’t get to see the Candace Radcliffe sold-out show. director But with only so many seats in a temporary tent/awning theatre space at Blackie Spit – and only a few days window in August granted by the City of Surrey – the show has to be literally a first-come, first-served proposition. (There is another way to beat the lineup, however – those who have donated $200 or more to the society get first crack at buying tickets starting June 15.) This year’s play is another highly-accessible favourite, Twelfth Night, which runs Aug. 14-18 with performances at 8 p.m. Described as “a festive riot of mischief and misplaced desire,” the play concerns Viola, shipwrecked on the shores of Illyria, who finds employment in the house of Duke Orsino, but only in the guise of a young man, Cesario. While the disguised Viola finds herself falling for the Duke, his attentions are fastened on Countess Olivia, who, in turn, falls for the Duke’s messenger – none other than Cesario/Viola herself. Throw in Olivia’s pompous servant, Malvolio, drunken uncle Sir Toby Belch and his companions – who would like nothing better than to take Malvolio down a peg or two by convincing him he is the object of his mistress’ love – and you have everything from knockabout comedy to deliciouslysustained romantic confusion. “When you stage live Shakespeare, you want people to connect with it and get the

Tickets for the hour-long play also go on sale June 24, with a warning that seating is general – in other words, first arrivals get the best seats. For Radcliffe and Harmon, the second season of Beach House has come at a rush, following close on the heels of the success of the first, which exceeded even their own expectations. “We’re still reflecting on our first year, still absorbing all that it was,” Radcliffe said. “We think about all the amazing people who came and got involved. It became such a community effort, and we have an unbelievable board of directors.” Exemplary support was also received from such business and community organizations, including Alexandra Neighbourhood House (aka Camp Alexandra) which, Radcliffe said, “swept in and rescued us when we needed rehearsal space both inside and outside.” “It really helps actors get a feel for the necessary projection,” Harmon commented. “We worked hard to make community connections last year,” Radcliffe said. As two educators (Radcliffe is drama teacher at Earl Marriott Secondary, and Harmon – who retired from Marriott several years ago – is still teaching drama for the Surrey School District) they’re justly proud of their mentorship of young players and technicians. Many of their casts are drawn from the ranks of alumni and just-graduated students, while last year Beach House scholarship recipient Zack Dallas, who had just finished Grade 12 at Elgin Park Secondary, ran lights, and Grade 10 Marriott student Riley Lieper ran sound. “They were excellent – Zack was there from each morning to the end of the show,” said Radcliffe. “And Riley created all the sound cues under (technical director Geoff McEvoy)’s supervision,” said Harmon. A lot of Beach House Theatre’s energy this year, aside from the productions themselves, is also going into fine-tuning the experience for playgoers. That includes slight shifts in location and timing to avoid sun-in-the-eyes issues of staging a play just prior to sunset. “We’ve pushed the start of the evening show back half an hour to eight o’clock,” said Harmon. “And we’re also looking at further options for food on the site,” added Radcliffe.

From the Charleston to Gangnam is a huge spectrum of dance styles, but noted local DJ Jose Manzano, sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of White Rock, is aiming to supply the beats that will tempt Peninsula residents onto the floor in support of a worthy cause. The club’s Swing Into Spring, March 23, 6 p.m., at the Royal Canadian Legion Crescent Branch 240 (2643 128 St.) is a fundraiser for the Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Program (KCCP). The dinner-dance will feature a roast beef repast prepared by Kiwanis chef Steve MacPherson, with help from club members and some of his Scout troop, plus silent auction and door prizes, 50/50 draw, and, of course, music from the vast library of DJ Jose, well-known member of Vancouver’s Swing City team. Event co-organizer Helken McFadden explained that while DJ Jose’s specialty is swing dance, “he also covers a wide range of musical genres, offering something for every taste.” She said the choice of DJ was

“specifically so that we would have an affable host who would concentrate on making everyone welcome and assuring a fun evening for every person attending.” An information table will also explain KCCP, through which the Kiwanis Pacific Northwest District sponsors doctors’ residencies at children’s hospitals, gaining firsthand experience in treating children with cancer. Proceeds from Swing Into Spring will help fund such research through the oncology fellowship of B.C. Children’s Hospital. All money made through the dinner-dance will be matched by the Kiwanis Foundation, and will go directly to the program, rather than some being spent on club administration. Helping to provide the right seasonal touch for the event will be a spring-themed table decor by Kiwanis member Helen Gray. Tickets ($30) are available from the legion, Kiwanis Club members, Melange Gifts and Cotton and Crayons in Ocean Park, or by calling Lea at 604-538-3037 or Helen at 604538-9594.

Local writer helping restock libraries trashed by Hurricane Sandy

A Cloverdale author is doing his part to help restock libraries destroyed by Hurricane Sandy. Copies of My Temporary Life by Martin Crosbie have been sent to libraries in Connecticut, New Jersey and New York City, where facilities and collections were ravaged by the storm last October. The donation is part of a larger movement called Indie (Independent) Authors for Hurricane Sandy, spearheaded by author K.S. Brooks, a native New Yorker who now lives in Washington State. Brooks contacted Crosbie, who writes a column for a web site she administrates called Indies Unlimited. He had obviously heard of the devastation caused by Sandy, but hadn’t thought of the impact on the area’s library systems. “It’s just nice to be able to do something to help,” Crosbie said, adding he will follow up with copies of his second novel in the series, My Name is Hardly. Crosbie self-published his first novel, the coming-of-age suspense/thriller My Temporary Life, on Amazon.com last year. After taking advantage of a promotion in February 2012 that featured his book for free for a limited time, the e-book took off

Cloverdale author Martin Crosbie is sending books to U.S. libraries. and soon became a Top 10 Amazon bestseller. To date, close to 30,000 e-books have been sold, and on Amazon. com it averages 4.5 out of 5 stars from customer reviews. My Name is Hardly was released on Amazon.com last December. He hopes to have the third book in the trilogy, A Different Kind of Girl, available this spring. The self-publishing success has led to speaking opportunities such as the North Shore Writers Festival this April, where he will be on a panel. Crosbie is one of more than 70 independent authors from around the world who have donated their fiction, non-fiction

and e-books to public libraries and schools in need through Indie Authors for Hurricane Sandy (books are vetted by the organization). The first libraries to receive donations were a school library in Monmouth Beach and the Queens library system in New York City. “This school requested books appropriate for Grades pre-K through eight,” said founder Brooks in a media release. “The students use the library for both research and recreational reading.” For more on the project, visit ksbrooks.com/AuthorsforHurricaneSandyLibraries —with files from Tricia Leslie

The Surrey Eagles have had plenty of success against the Langley Rivermen this season –winning seven times – and they’ll renew their rivalry Friday.

Best-of-five BCHL playoff series begins Friday in South Surrey

Division rivals to square off in Round 1 Nick Greenizan

I

Sports Reporter

n advance of their team’s first-round playoff series with the Langley Rivermen, the Surrey Eagles’ coaching staff has spent the week poring over video, strategizing and looking for even the smallest of advantages for their team. And they’ve done it knowing full well that the whole plan might be tossed out the window at a moment’s notice once the bestof-five showdown begins Friday at South Surrey Arena. “You plan for about the first 10 minutes of the first period of the first game and, after that, it’s just about adjustments,” said head coach Matt Erhart. “You can plan and plan all you want, but then who knows? Something happens and you change on the fly.” While change is inevitable over the course

of the series, one constant Erhart has stressed to his troops this week is the importance of sticking to what they do best – play good defence in front of the BCHL’s top netminder, Michael Santaguida, and score opportunistic goals when the chances arise. “We aren’t going to change the way we play too much depending on who we’re playing. Too often we did that earlier in the season – we were trying too hard to counteract what other teams were doing,” Erhart said. “But since Christmas, we’ve focused on our own game, and it’s that’s not good enough to

win, then I guess we’re not good enough. But we think we have a good chance to win every game we play when we stick to our style.” It’s certainly been good enough against the Rivermen this season. In eight head-tohead matchups during the regular season, the Eagles won seven – including a 10-2 drubbing in January. “If we were playing an Island team in the first round, (making a game plan) would be different because we’d only have played them a couple times, but playing a team eight times – and three or four times since Christmas – most guys on both sides have

a pretty good idea about what to expect,” Erhart said. Both teams have been red-hot since Christmas, with the Rivermen – losses to Surrey aside – pulling themselves out of the bottom of the Mainland Division and into a playoff spot, and the Eagles rolling to the best record not only in the conference, but the entire BCHL. In 26 games since the Christmas break, the Eagles have lost just three games in regulation time. They’ve won 18 of those games, tied two others and lost three in overtime. While Langley’s record is not quite that gaudy over the last few months, they still boast the league’s top point-getter in Mario Puskarich, who had 41 goals and 89 points in 55 games this season. He also helped key a Langley power play that ranked seventh in the BCHL during the regular season. › see page A42

Intensity expected › from page A41 “You have to be aware of (Puskarich),” said Erhart, whose team ranked fourth in penalty-killing during the regular season. “He’s a very dangerous player. He gets a lot of his points on the power play, so our penalty killing is going to be pretty important. Surrey is not without offensive talent, either, led by forwards Brady Shaw and Adam Tambellini, who finished fifth and 11th, respectively, in the BCHL scoring race. Since Tambellini arrived from the Vernon Vipers, Erhart has played him and Shaw on the same line, but lately has split them up in an effort to spread offence throughout the lineup and create matchup problems for the Rivermen coaching staff, who will have to decide which of the two lines their top defence pair will play against. Erhart also expects Demico Hannoun and captain Brett Mulcahy – among others – back in the lineup. The only two players who won’t suit up are goaltender Glenn Ferguson and

defenceman Troy Paterson, both of whom have been out for months. “We’re going to have basically a full complement of players for the first time in two months,” Erhart said. “We haven’t had that in quite awhile.” Erhart knows better than to count on a full roster for the entire post-season – in the last three weeks, the team has played with as many as seven regulars out of the lineup – but regardless of how his lineup is configured, he expects “smart, hard hockey” out of his squad. And considering their opponent is a division rival, he doesn’t expect motivation to be much of an issue. “I’ve yet to be involved in a non-intense playoff series,” he laughed. “So I’m sure this one will be no different.” Game 1 goes Friday at South Surrey Arena, and Game 2 is slated for Saturday, also in South Surrey. For Game 3, the series shifts to the Langley Events Centre on Monday, and Game 4 – if necessary – will be played Tuesday.

Women’s bonspiel to begin Sunday in White Rock

Curlers get ready to rock One of the province’s biggest women’s curling events comes to the Peace Arch Curling Club Sunday, when the first rock is thrown at the Nifty Fifty Bonspiel. The bonspiel, now in its 46th year, is hosted each year by a different B.C. club; this year, 32 teams will play at the Peace Arch

Curling Centre from March 17-20. The on-ice action begins early Sunday, with the first draws set for 7 a.m. Peace Arch’s entry into the tournament – skipped by Divera Meeres – begins play at 9:15 a.m. An official opening ceremony is slated for 11:30 a.m., after

the first two sets of games are played. The bonspiel – which also features two Cloverdale teams, one skipped by Sharon MacMurchy and another by Caroline Koehler – wraps up with final games on Wednesday afternoon. – Nick Greenizan

Hawks bounced from playoffs Rick Kupchuk Black Press

They staved off elimination once, but the Valley West Hawks couldn’t do it a second time. The BC Major Midget Hockey League team forced a deciding game in their best-of-three series with the Okanagan Rockets, then saw their season come to an end Sunday morning in Kelowna, losing 8-3. Okanagan also won the first game of the quarterfinal series by a 6-4 score Friday night. The Hawks got their lone win of the weekend Saturday 4-1. Needing a win to clinch the series and earn a semifinal date with the Cariboo Cougars next weekend in Prince George, the Hawks came out flat Sunday morning. They trailed 3-0 after 20 min-

utes, before trading goals with the home team in the second period. Eric Callegari put the Hawks on the scoreboard three minutes into the session, but the Rockets struck for two goals in a 60-second span to make it 5-1. Matt Bradley of Surrey set up Jakob Stukel of Cloverdale midway through the frame, then scored himself two minutes later to cut the difference to 5-3, both goals coming while Valley West was on the powerplay. Okanagan scored late in the second period and added two more in the third. The Rockets also got off to a fast start in Game 1 Friday night, taking a 3-0 lead before the game was 10 minutes old. Stukel got one back for Valley West, but a late Okanagan goal upped the difference to 4-1 at first intermission. Spencer Unger of Surrey scored

the second Hawks goal late in the second period, a tally which made the score 5-2 for the Rockets. It was 6-2 in the third period before Hawks struck for two more goals to end the game. Stukel notched his second and Matthew Cox found the net with 93 seconds to play. Bradley finished the game with three assists, with Rhett Wilcox earning a pair of helpers. Valley West trailed again after one period in Saturday’s mustwin game, but shut out the Rockets the rest of the way. With the Hawks down 1-0, Unger scored a tying goal midway through the second period. Cole Plotnikoff got the winner with two minutes left in the period, and Stukel added an insurance goal. Jake Fletcher of Surrey closed out the scoring in the third period.

No plans for similar signage in Peninsula rinks

Conduct sign aimed at fans Janis Warren Black Press

A code of conduct sign that was posted last month at the Port Moody Recreation Centre has struck a nerve with arena users. And though the city has received mostly positive comments about cheeky sign – that’s directed mostly at hockey parents and spectators – there are no similar signs planned for South Surrey Arena or White Rock’s Centennial Arena. The “Spectator Code of Conduct” sign in Port Moody reads: “Please remember: 1. These are kids. 2. This is a game. 3. Parents should cheer for everyone. 4. The referees are human. 5. You and your child do not play for the Canucks.” Soon after the sign was put up, a photo of it was posted to the Facebook page of the Tri-City News, sister paper to the Peace Arch News. It’s drawn more than 1,800 “likes” and has been viewed more than 20,000 times. Among the online chatter: “Sad that it has to be said but, yes, the time has come that these rules must be posted clearly and offenders be tossed out on their rear end.” “Signs like this are posted all over Canada. Good to see Moody jump on the bandwagon. Arenas just need to figure out how to

remove and ban problem adults (1%) that are constant problems.” The comments came the same week that a B.C. hockey coach was sentenced to 15 days in jail and a year of probation after he was caught on video tripping a 13-year-old player following a game last year. Port Moody city spokesperson Leslyn Johnson said the idea for the sign came from a member of the community who had seen it in another city. “He sent it to Mayor (Mike) Clay, who liked the idea and thought we should do something similar in Port Moody,” she said. Johnson stressed the sign isn’t in response to a specific incident at the arena. “It stems from a general under-

standing that many spectators – not just at hockey games – can get unruly and disrespectful to the players, referees and coaches, and that Port Moody will not tolerate this kind of behaviour,” she said. Semiahmoo Minor Hockey president Ian Maguire says while no such signs are posted at Semiahmoo’s home rinks, the association did launch a Respect in Sports program “some time ago” in an effort to educate parents, fans and coaches on proper conduct. “It is certainly a problem that seems to plague hockey more than other sports,” Maguire said in an email. Posters promoting the Respect in Sports program are posted in Centennial Arena, said Pat La Rue, who spearheaded Semi’s initiative. The posters are in no way similar to the tongue-in-cheek signs now hanging in Port Moody, however. “It was time that it go up,” said PMAHA first vice-president Dennis Shaben, adding his organization had worked with the city to install it. “We have dialogued with them all the time and it’s a conundrum out there. People love hockey in Canada but the degree of seriousness has, I think, escalated and we’re just seeing a tendency of some – and it’s that small minority – get out of hand.” – with files from Nick Greenizan

Tweedsmuir athletes win four medals at provincials

Wrestlers place 2nd Rick Kupchuk Black Press

Four medals, including one gold, lifted the Lord Tweedsmur Panthers to a second-place finish at the B.C. High School Wrestling Championships March 1-2 in Duncan. Panthers wrestlers accumulated 49 points at the meet, five better than the third-place St. Thomas Moore Knights and 12 behind the champion W.J. Mouat Hawks. Jaskarn Ranu won a gold medal in the 75 kg class, while Tweedsmuir teammates Tyler Dillman in the 66 kg group and Arshvir Atwal in the 70 kg category won silver. Brad Hildenbrandt won a bronze medal in 90 kg competition.

Placing seventh in the team standings were the Queen Elizabeth Royals, who were paced by Daman Bilen, the gold medalist in the 90 kg class. Jason Bains of the Royals won a silver medal, losing the 110 kg final to Paul Sahota of the Tamanawis Wildcats. Tamanawis placed two wrestlers on the medal podium, and finished 10th overall. In addition to Sahota’s gold medal, Yosh Phull won bronze in the 70 kg group. Three other wrestlers from Surrey schools claimed bronze medals. They were Will Tanmavong of the Guildford Park Sabres in 57 kg., Billy Sahota of the L.A. Matheson Mustangs in 74 kg., and Many Kahlon of the Frank Hurt Hornets in the 110-plus kg category.

9 years have passed but not a day goes by that we don’t think of you. Missed, remembered, longed for always. Bringing many tears. Dearly loved by all your friends and those who knew you. Sadly missed by Bill & Teeka, Rick, Willie & Nicole, Lorie & family, Alison & family and all your dear friends.

MANDIGO, Ralph

BOWLER, Gerald Ivan. September 22, 1919 – March 7, 2013 Our much-treasured Dad, Grandpa and Great-grandfather has passed away peacefully in Vernon, BC. He was predeceased by his beloved wife Elva and is survived by his two sons Gerry (Karen) and Neil (Kathryn), sisters Betty and Lois (Reg) and brothers Ken (Geraldine), Glenn plus five adoring grandchildren Cam, Ryan, Amy, Kate and Maria and “his replacement” great-grandson Rufus. Gerald was born in Radville, SK and moved as a teen to Melville where he met Elva. During World War II he served as a bomber pilot with RAF Coastal Command in the Mediterranean. Throughout his life in Regina, Saskatoon, North Vancouver and White Rock he was known for his sense of humour and helping hands. He was loyal to the end to his family, the Saskatchewan Roughriders, the Liberal Party and the Vancouver Canucks. Special thanks to Dr Chris Cunningham and the caring nurses, support workers and volunteers at Vernon Hospice House who made his last days so easy. There will be a memorial service later this year in White Rock.

Our wonderful Dad and Grandpa, a veteran, a man of many talents, and lifelong learner, left us peacefully March 2nd 2013. Dad was predeceased by his devoted wives, our mother Joan (1996), and Jeanne (2010), as well as his parents, and two brothers. He will be dearly missed by his daughters, Caroline (Ross) Maitland and Louise (Garry) Fennell, and adored grandchildren, Sarah (Nevan), Nikki, Mike, Katie (Adolfo), and great grandchildren, Elise and Hudson, as well as Jeanne’s loving family. To our extended family and special friends, thank you so much for your prayers and kindness at this sad time. To all the staff and many new friends at Whitecliff Retirement Residence, thank you for the gentle care and friendship given to Ralph and all of our family. To Shannon, Dad’s evening companion and caregiver for the past two plus years, thank you for helping our Dad on his journey. In lieu of flowers a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or Cancer Research would be greatly appreciated. Please raise a glass and hug your loved ones in memory of Ralph, The Best Dad in the World. We love you Dad. Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre 604-536-6522

Panther Constructors hopes Vancouver will follow Abbotsford’s lead

Finding affordable living in the Lower Mainland Affordable housing has been in the news a lot lately, and developers are looking to appeal to buyers who may not be able to afford as much in an expensive real estate market. Brian Roche, president of Panther Constructors, is hoping that Vancouver will take a page out of Abbotsford’s book and implement a rezoning plan that will allow developers in Chinatown to offer more affordable homes to buyers in an area that is rapidly becoming popular. “Abbotsford took a piece of property and rezoned it to make it more affordable,” Roche says. “They offered it to developers to buy, and built

affordable housing.” This prevented buyers from leaving the area and moving to less-expensive communities, such as Mission. Roche says this is something that he is hoping to see in Vancouver as well. Panther is looking for the city to find ways to either reduce prices on the land in the area or cap the current price. Since Panther purchased the land for The Flats on Georgia, their condo development in Chinatown, other developers have taken notice and begun working on their own projects. “Chinatown has become a hotbed,” says Roche. “Prices have gone up quite substantially.”

Modern Georgian style

Coquitlam welcomes Emerson to the neighbourhood By Kerry Vital

Georgian architecture with modern interiors is arriving in West Coquitlam with MOSAIC’s EMERSON, already under construction on Como Lake Avenue near North Road. “EMERSON will be a block from the coming Evergreen Line,” says MOSAIC’s Geoff Duyker. “In the near future, this whole area will look totally different. The halo of the Evergreen Line combined with some exciting mixed-used projects will bring new high-street retail and breathe vibrant life into everything.” While the convenient transit orientation of Evergreen Heights has huge appeal to shoppers, the neighbourhood has other amenities to offer. “EMERSON is close to Simon Fraser University’s Burnaby Mountain campus,” says Duyker. “This has brought both first-time buyers and parents investing for their children.” Shops and restaurants are minutes away in either direction at Lougheed Town Centre, Newport Village or Little Korea on North Road. Plus, you’ll also find the big box convenience of United Boulevard a few minutes away. Recreation and leisure activities are available at the parks in the area, as well as fishing at Como Lake, golfing at the Vancouver Golf Club or a workout at Steve Nash Fitness World – all nearby. EMERSON will hold 63 apartment

residences in a variety of one- and twobedroom floorplans ranging from 589 to over 700 square feet. “Already 70 per cent sold, homebuyers are recognizing EMERSON’s phenomenal value relative to other options on the market,” says Duyker. Inspired by Georgian architecture, EMERSON will have plenty of red brick and black metal work, mullioned windows and layers of landscaping. Buyers with a green thumb will find plots for herbs and vegetables, but you don’t need to be a nature lover to enjoy the garden greenscape with trellises and benches perfect for a picnic. Inside, the nine-foot ceilings (10 feet on the penthouse level) heighten the sense of space to the home, complemented by large windows that let the light pour in, whatever the weather. The main living areas feature laminate wood flooring throughout, with an elegant tile threshold with granite inset in the entry – a MOSAIC

signature. The beauty continues in the kitchen, with its polished composite quartz countertop and two-tone flat-panel cabinetry. The stainless-steel appliances and glass tile backsplash are lit by under-cabinet task lighting, while the open shelving and under-cabinet spice ledge, all designed by MOSAIC, are masterstrokes of convenience and contemporary style. Moving into the bathrooms, you will find porcelain tile flooring and polished composite quartz countertops, complemented by the polished chrome

and white glass pendant light fixtures. The deep soaker tub is perfect for a soak, while the wood-framed niche with inset glass shelves beside the vanity in the ensuite is a special touch that demonstrates the design-driven details in a MOSAIC home. “MOSAIC is passionate about great design,” says Duyker. “We build better homes.” Homes at EMERSON start in the low $200,000s. For more information, visit mosaichomes.com/emerson, call 604936-9300 or check out the Home Store and model home at 608 Como Lake Avenue, West Coquitlam.

MOSAIC is passionate about great design,” says Geoff Duyker. “We build better homes.”
