Intelligence community rethinks how to police Saturday’s Vaisakhi parade and other major events

Boston bombing puts Surrey on alert Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Surrey RCMP are preparing for upcoming major events with new vigour after two bombs were detonated Monday at the Boston Marathon. Three people were killed and 175 injured, 17 of whom were in critical condition after two shrapnel-packed bombs went off near the finish line of the iconic marathon. While 18 runners from Surrey and their

supporters took part, no Canadians were reported injured in the apparent terror attack. Soon after news broke of the event, Surrey RCMP intelligence officers were on high alert, readying for large events coming to this city, such as Surrey’s International World Music Marathon in September and this weekend’s Vaisakhi parade, which is expected to draw 200,000 people to the streets of Newton. “As a result of (Boston’s bombing), we’re watching very closely,” said Surrey RCMP Sgt.

Drew Grainger, who co-ordinates policing for Surrey’s major events. “We’re in close contact, more than ever before… with the intelligence community, locally as well as internationally.” Boston officials said there were no prior indications of any threat, a scenario Grainger describes as “your worst nightmare.” “After what happened in Boston, we immediately put that machine into motion,” Grainger said. “We were in touch with our intelligence community right away. We

made some operational adjustments to the plan we have for Vaisakhi to change some of the tactics we would be using.” Some of those tactics will mean a larger police presence at the parade, which begins Saturday at 9:30 a.m. at the Gurdwara Dashmesh Darbar Temple, 12885 85 Ave. “We’re good at these major events,” Grainger said, adding Surrey events get bigger every year and are known throughout the region as safe and peaceful festivities.

fter 75 days of incarceration, Brian Bylo stepped out of a provincial jail this week and into a sunbathed path leading to his father’s car. Bylo was released from the Fraser Valley Regional Correctional Facility after being locked up. Again. He’s been to jail 30 times in the

last four years, mostly for missing court dates and appointments with probation officers, as well as some petty-theft offences. The 30-year-old, who suffers from schizophrenia, made the unfortunate choice in 2008 to dabble with illicit drugs. Now, with coexisting conditions (addiction and schizophrenia), he is bounced between emergency wards that want him to deal with his addiction, and treatment facilities that find it difficult working with serious mental illness. On Monday, stabilized on medication, he was picked up by his

father, South Surrey businessman Gordon Bylo, who will take his son for a court-ordered stay at VisionQuest Recovery Society, a recovery centre in Chilliwack. Gordon hopes this time, Brian can get a handle on long-term healing. With his dual diagnosis, Brian is one of society’s hardest to help. Over the last six weeks, Black Press has examined the effects of mental illness on the system as a whole – from policing and the courts, to treatment centres and hospitals, to families and the sufferers themselves. › see page 8

White Rock council has given the thumbs-up to an omnibus bylaw that includes new regulations for operating vacation rentals in the city and building on West Beach. The vote to move Bylaw 2000 forward does not, however, mean discussion on those matters is over. In fact, Mayor Wayne Baldwin’s message to developers eyeing projects in the West Beach area was clear: “There will be no developments that will be allowed to go through until we deal with this.” Bylaw 2000 updates and replaces Bylaw 1591, which was adopted in 1999; it also reflects changes to the city’s Official Community Plan. In recommending support for final reading, director of development services Paul Stanton asked that staff be given time to research concerns raised by residents. At a March 25 public hearing, bed-and-breakfast representatives expressed concern that the regulations prevent vacation rentals from running simultaneously with a B&B. › see page 4

Those opposed to 12-storey project urged to help sway White Rock council

Vidal Street residents ‘have a lot to say’ Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

White Rock residents who are opposed to a proposed 12-storey development on Vidal Street are rallying to ensure their arguments come through loud and clear when a public hearing rolls around. “I think the residents around this whole area have a lot to say,” said Lillian Zubor, who lives across the street from the proposed development. “I’m hoping to see a lot of people at this meeting.” The proposal in question is a project consisting of 12 townhomes and 97 apartment units at 1467 to 1519 Vidal St.

Zubor hopes others with concerns about it will come to 1391 Johnston Rd. at 7 p.m. tonight (Thursday) to discuss how best to sway council against voting it forward. Council voted 4-2 on March 25 to send it to public hearing, a date for which has yet to be confirmed. Coun. Al Campbell and Mayor Wayne Baldwin opposed the move; Coun. Helen Fathers, who had voiced opposition to the project at the March 11 land-use committee meeting, was absent. City staff at the land-use meeting had 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. Zubor said last week she is “a little disgruntled” about the plan. She cited an increase in traffic and a lack of infrastructure as among key reasons she does not want it to go ahead. She noted she did not attend an earlier information meeting on the project because she didn’t realize exactly what was on the table. “Not in my wildest dreams did I think they were going to put up a 12-storey building,” she said. “When I heard from my neighbours what was happening, that’s when I started to pay attention.

“If I wanted to live in highrises, I would’ve bought in Metrotown.” Zubor said she has distributed flyers regarding Thursday’s meeting throughout her neighbourhood, and encouraged anyone who wants to add their voice to the issue to attend. “If you don’t react on it, they may just get away with it,” she said. “I don’t want that to happen. I want people to be aware – this is what we’re going to be stuck with.” Zubor assured that despite the location – the campaign office of Surrey-White Rock NDP candidate Susan Keeping – the meeting is not affiliated with anything political.

Judgment reserved

Benzce sentence ‘too harsh’ Sheila Reynolds Black Press

When Ron Bencze was sentenced last August to four years in prison for molesting a Surrey boy, the judge also imposed a 20-year ban on him visiting parks, schools or any other place children might be present. That, says his lawyer, is not only one of the longest such prohibitions in B.C. history, but also bars Bencze from seeing his own kids. Eric Gottardi made the arguments during an appeal of Bencze’s sentence in B.C. Appeal Court on Monday (April 15). Bencze pleaded guilty to one count of child sex assault last summer. The court heard that the former radio and TV reporter sexually assaulted the victim, who is now in his teens, between March 2003 and December 2010, when the boy Ron Bencze was between the appealing sentence ages of six and 14. It wasn’t until the boy’s mother discovered sexually explicit text messages on her son’s phone that Bencze’s actions were uncovered. Eight other charges allegedly involving two other children were stayed. The trial judge called Bencze’s crime “deviant” and questioned whether he even comprehended the magnitude of the abuse or whether it would still be going on had Bencze not been caught. In seeking a new sentence, Gottardi argued the trial judge misunderstood a sentencing report and that Bencze showed remorse. “The real issue was: is there a risk to other children? And there just isn’t. The expert evidence says there’s not,” said Gottardi. Three appeal court judges reserved judgment. Bencze, who last worked at Global BC television, remains in custody. - with files from CTV

Company officials… were hopeful it was going to get underway this spring.” Simpson said retail and residential markets need to improve before the towers can proceed. “As soon as the market conditions allow us to… we’re going to be back,” he said. “We would really like to see it as a development site, not a mall that we overpaid for.” While Campbell suggested Monday that the city back-charge Bosa for the cost of the loading-zone work, director of development services Paul Stanton said the developer did nothing wrong. Bylaws in place at the time did not require loading space be included. Bylaw 2000, which council passed later Monday night, does. Coun.

The work is hoped to be completed by June 1.

Cheers as molester jailed As James Cardno was handcuffed and led out of a Surrey courtroom Tuesday afternoon, one of his victims stood and wept, knowing the man who sexually assaulted him and nine other boys will be behind bars for many years. Cardno, who molested 10 boys and took pornographic photos of them, was sentenced to nine

years in prison by a Surrey Provincial Court judge. Families of other victims clapped and cheered as Cardno was taken into custody by sheriffs. Cardno, 48, pleaded guilty to 15 child-sex and pornography charges last year. He initially faced 31 charges. On Monday, the court heard

The new zone, he added, also tightens limits on density in the area. “There are no immediate concerns with the adoption of the CR-3,” he said. “Give us a chance to study the options.” Any suggested revisions will have to go to public hearing, he noted. Regarding the bed-and-breakfast/vacation-rental issue, Stanton said the updated bylaw “is a step forward,” as it actually permits vacation rentals, which the former bylaw did not. Further research is needed to determine, for example, if the city should consider site-specific zoning for property owners wanting to operate both, or if placing limits on the number of rooms and guests is the way to

go, Stanton said. “We will study the issue and come back with a recommendation,” he said. While Coun. Helen Fathers suggested deferring the bylaw “until all of this is sorted out,” Coun. Larry Robinson said a decision to that effect “is just basically saying we can’t make a decision.” Many other areas of city business will be stymied by further delay, he said. Prior to voting in support of the bylaw, Coun. Al Campbell said it was “very, very important” to be clear that if the bylaw was passed, that “CR-3 is out… and there will be another public hearing.” Council gave unanimous support to the bylaw. Stanton said staff will report back on any refinements or revisions by June 19.

In regards to the new CR-3 zone for West Beach, residents wanted changes to how building heights are determined; they asked the city to scrap the concept of measuring from natural grade in favour of existing grade. Stanton told council Monday that addressing the latter issue is not as easy as simply swapping the two terms, a move he said could “create more problems than it solves.” Stanton said the solution may involve creating a bylaw that says fill cannot be imported to elevate a lot; or, changing the building bylaw to require that existinggrade information by submitted

Recommendation on GMOs to be taken to Surrey council

actually asking council for – a resolution opposing any further planting of genetically engineered crops in Surrey. Surrey, the committee noted, can’t become a GMO-free zone, when farmers have right under existing laws to plant GMO crops. “Since there is a concern, maybe recommending GMO labelling is something the committee can support,” it stated in its briefing document. “I think the committee’s attitude is that a resolution would be symbolic and not-enforceable – a waste of time,” Harrison said last week, acknowledging that GMO corn is already grown in Surrey (by some estimates, he said, 90 per cent of all corn, canola and soy produced in North America is GMO). But he has not abandoned getting the resolution passed, which he believes would raise awareness and send a grass-roots message to Ottawa and Victoria.

Attack ads show a lack of class

T

he likelihood of it happening may be slim, but one would hope our local Conservative MP, Russ Hiebert (South Surrey-White RockCloverdale) will be quick to issue a statement denouncing his party’s response to the weekend election of Justin Trudeau as leader of the Liberal Party of Canada. No sooner had Trudeau won the leadership than the Conservatives released video ad belittling Trudeau’s experience, decrying his attendance in the House of Commons and using a photo of him at a charity event to attack him. The ads feature a mocking voice making fun of Trudeau’s array of jobs, including that of a drama teacher. In this mindset, then, educators are not qualified to be prime minister, a job apparently reserved for policy wonks with economic degrees. The ads use a photo of a shirtless Trudeau in an attempt to further the Conservatives’ argument that the Quebec MP is all style and no substance. The fact the photo was taken at a charity event to raise money for, and awareness of, prostate cancer — the very disease that contributed to the death of Trudeau’s father, former prime minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau — only adds to the utter tastelessness of such an attack. Perhaps this is par for the course for a party that attacked Stéphane Dion as lacking the capacity to be a leader and who attacked Thomas Mulcair when he succeeded Jack Layton as NDP leader. The next federal election is two years from now. Could the Conservatives not have impressed and surprised us all by taking out ads congratulating Trudeau on his triumph and promising a fair, but tough battle? There are many valid issues the Conservatives could have raised about the record of the Liberals and failures of Liberal policies in the past. A respectful campaign could have scored political points on civility alone, while still underlining the shortcomings of a party. That kind of discourse falls within the realm of legitimate political discussion. Such an ad could have created a buzz that would have done wonders for the Conservatives. But apparently it’s not as ‘sexy’ an approach as taking cheap shots and lowering the level of debate to personal attacks. In choosing this line of attack, the Conservatives have run the risk of revealing far more about themselves than their opponents. Perhaps Hiebert will speak his mind and not recite the party line if asked about this latest dearth of class?

at the C.D. Howe Institute (and New Westminster resident) wrote in The Walrus magazine, and addressed those who say if Canada contributes only two per cent to global emissions, why should we bother making an effort until everybody joins in. “Yet every year on Remembrance Day,” Jaccard wrote. “Stephen Harper extols our critical role in confronting Nazi Germany’s global threat. He fails to mention we actually contributed less than two per cent of the Allied effort to World War II… Even though we were only two per cent of the solution, we have something to be proud of. We punched above our weight by joining France and England in declaring war on Germany in 1939, without knowing if and when the USSR and U.S. would join the cause. We did not wait for everyone to act simultaneously against a global threat, which is virtually impossible, but instead showed leadership. If we were to show leadership on climate change, we would join forces with California, Europe, Australia and Japan. As the effort snowballed, we would use trade measures, if necessary, to bring other countries along.” Jaccard’s right. It’s time for us to lead. Every time we allow a new oil pipeline, or make it easier for a coal train to move its goods, we enable the carbon-intensive economy that’s heating the planet. We’re no longer leading. We’re being led down a garden path. Chris Bryan is the editor of the Burnaby-New West News-Leader, sister paper to the Peace Arch News.

Conservation will cost us

People look out for each other

Editor: Public consumers are constantly bombarded by multi-media blasts from water and hydro suppliers insisting we conserve their essential resource. Nonsense! If we conserve as advised, you can be assured that it is virtually impossible for any supplier to exist under current expenditures, when conservation creates a substantial decline in their income. The first thing corporations would do is increase rates while blaming shortfalls in revenue. What’s a consumer to do? Continue to pay higher rates for energy and water, or pay higher rates resulting from conservation? We can’t win. James Golightly, White Rock

Visible faces of politics Editor: I am surprised by Mayor Wayne Baldwin’s performance as mayor of White Rock for the last few months. I feel he is an amazing politician, and it seems he knows how to play the game. The mayor must be a superman, having so much energy posing for pictures in the paper week after week. I just don’t know how the mayor finds time to do his job. I am told the mayor even has his picture on the back of a bus. Will we have the pleasure of seeing the mayor’s picture anywhere else? Mary Mikelson, Surrey n Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts has been in the newsprint frequently over the past week as she made her state-of-the-city address – something is up. A cynic will speculate that our mayor is preparing herself to take a run at the BC Liberal leadership or, dare I say, the BC Conservative leadership. The mugshots and headlines are ever present as she addresses issues like local transit and education as priorities for Surrey. These are foremost major provincial jurisdictional issues.  The mayor’s “linking communities” theme in her address offered another opportunity to showcase her profile not only to her Surrey constituents but to the entire province.

Letter writers question the environmental benefits of carbon credits, suggesting political benefits are more obvious.

Pay-to-pollute a political scam Editor: Re: Carbon offsets all smoke and mirrors, April 11 editorial. The editorial on the serious questions raised by the auditor general over the carbon-credit scam is a good start, but there is one very serious issue not addressed. If the BC Liberals were a free-enterprise party, they would go to the market for carbon credits, not to cozy deals with select private corporations. That would show that the market price for carbon offsets is far below the price they are charging the schools, hospitals and voters. Of course, finding a viable carbon exchange is a bit of a problem. After the Chicago Climate Exchange’s carboncredit price high of $7.50 per metric ton of CO2 in May 2008, by November 2010 the value was five to 10 cents and a decision was made to close the exchange after nine months of zero trading volume. Compare five to 10 cents to the $25 the BC Liberals are soaking us for. The last major exchange is the one run for the European Union, which has its own problems. As the Feb. 19 issue of The Economist notes, the price on that exchange has collapsed to five Euros per ton (about $7). It would have gone even lower but for government intervention holding back 900 million tons of credits, Just one more way the BC Liberals are abusing the voters of this province to enrich their friends. Ed Beauregard, Surrey n The simple words “carbon tax” were motherhood and apple pie to honest environmentalists. Imposed by edict with no truthful disclosure or discussion, most naively believed government had their interests at heart, and

was competent and honest. The auditor general proved otherwise and has been scorned by government and Pacific Carbon Trust clients, who all have much to gain. PCT is like a Ponzi scheme, spending millions of tax dollars on non-existent projects and then claiming credibility because they spent the money. Our government gives schools, hospitals and other government monopolies operating funds, and then claws them back by imposing carbon taxes. Emissions are never decreased because the object is to achieve “neutral” emissions. Any Grade 10 student looking at this scheme would declare it to be environmentally stupid but profitable for government. As an extreme example, if I started a lucrative business burning old tires, all I need do is buy “carbon offsets” and I am now “carbon neutral.” Nothing has been done to help the environment, and pollution was increased. Both BC Liberals and NDP vow to continue with this scam. Like the First World War temporary income tax, they intend the carbon tax to become a permanent source of income for government, with regular increases. Additionally, TransLink, Mayor Watts and the UBCM want a piece of the action, with increases to cover their own dubious spending. My MLA agrees with the Grade 10s but cannot speak out because of party discipline. The politicians are bilking us not only environmentally but also financially. The carbon tax should be immediately scrapped, thus removing a tax burden on the working poor who still have to heat their homes and cook their food. Replacing it with fines for excessive polluters would be simpler. J. Edwards, Surrey

Judge drops O.J. charges Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

An Abbotsford woman facing multiple charges in connection with an altercation on White Rock pier more than 30 months ago walked out of Surrey Provincial Court with a smile last Thursday after the woman she allegedly assaulted with orange juice failed to show up for the trial. Prosecutor Spencer Hamade directed a stay of proceedings on the charges against Dianna Michelle Hodgson after telling Judge Donald Gardner he had “no case” without the victim. Hamade had initially asked Gardner to delay the trial by 20 minutes to give the complainant more time to show up. However, Gardner – noting he had just completed a lengthy preliminary hearing regarding a seconddegree murder charge

– made it clear that wasn’t an option. “Why would I wait another 20 minutes?” he said. “It’s 10 o’clock. Court starts at 9:30.” A full day had been scheduled for the trial, which lawyers told Peace Arch News was the third time a trial date had been booked. The charges – assault, uttering threats and causing a disturbance – stemmed from an incident on Oct. 3, 2010. Const. Janelle Shoihet said police were called after a woman allegedly threw orange juice and yelled obscenities at another woman, threatened to throw her off the pier and then chased her and her friends. According to the police report, a verbal altercation ensued after the complainant’s hand was pinched by a crab the accused’s husband had caught.

No record for shoe assault A woman who admitted hitting another woman in the head with her high-heeled shoe during an altercation at Surrey Christian Secondary last year was handed a conditional discharge for the offence last week in Surrey Provincial Court. Judge Ellen Gordon, noting Lien Ai Dang’s obvious embarrassment over the incident, told the 34-year-old mother of three Wednesday that she would not be stuck with a criminal record for the assault provided she keeps the peace for a year, stays away from the victim and pays $320.70 restitution for medical expenses incurred as a result. Gordon heard the incident occurred on July 1 in the 15300block of 92 Avenue. “It turns out the accused was seeing the same boyfriend as the complainant and this was over him,” prosecutor James Lees said. The victim suffered injuries to her face and neck, Gordon heard. The incident was reported to police just after 6 p.m. When

officers arrived, a 36-year-old woman was being treated by paramedics for a head wound; she and another woman both blamed each other for the altercation. Cpl. Bert Paquet said Dang turned herself in to police on Sept. 2. Defense counsel Daniel Redekopp described the incident as a “matter of a love triangle, so to speak,” and said his client is “taking full responsibility for her actions.” She has already completed 16 hours of counselling, he said. Dang told Gordon the boyfriend in question had brought the victim to the scene, and that things escalated to the point she actually chased her. Asked why she took her shoe off in the first place, Dang said it was because she couldn’t run in her heels. Gordon said Dang taking the initiative to undergo counselling “speaks volumes about how troubled you were” over what happened. She gave Dang,until Jan. 31, 2014 to pay the restitution. - Tracy Holmes

Only India hosts a bigger celebration than Surrey

Second-largest Vaisakhi event in world Kevin Diakiw

O

Black Press

rganizers of this weekend’s Vaisakhi Parade in Surrey are expecting another record crowd – even larger than last year’s 200,000 people. Parade spokesperson Moninder Singh Buar said there’s a “buzz in the community” leading up to the celebration, indicating the number of attendees could even be larger. “Over the last ❝There’s a year or so, there’s lot more buzz been a lot more around the community celebration...❞ engagement from the youth Moninder Singh in Surrey,” Buar Buar said. “There’s a lot more buzz around the celebration around the religious side.” For the past few years, Surrey has been home to the largest Vaisakhi parade outside of India. Vaisakhi occurs in mid-April each year and coincides with the time of first crop harvesting in Punjab, and also marks the anniversary of one of Sikhism’s most important religious events, the establishment of Khalsa in 1699. Attendance at Surrey’s annual Vaisakhi event, which is now in its 12th year and is co-ordinated by the Gurdwara Sahib Dasmesh Darbar temple in Newton, has usually hovered between 80,000 and 100,000. But a couple of factors led to the increase last year, one of which Bual expects will be

Last year’s Vaisakhi Parade brought more than 200,000 people to Surrey. This year, organizers expect to top that number. duplicated. “A big reason is the parades in Vancouver and Surrey are now on different days, so people who had to choose one or the other now do both,” Bual said, noting the Vancouver event also attracts large

crowds. Vancouver’s Vaisakhi celebration takes place April 13, while Surrey’s is on April 20. “There wasn’t a lot of communication between the two groups for a while, but there is a lot

more now,” Bual said. “It benefits both of us.” The weather also co-operated last year, Bual added, after rain fell on the 2010 parade. “If the weather holds, definitely we expect to have as many people this year,” said Singh. “We

usually expect around 100,000, but last year was a surge, it was unexpected. But we did do more promotion and marketing.” More than 2,500 participants from over 20 community groups are expected to participate this year. The parade is set to begin at approximately 9:30 a.m. and conclude at 4 p.m., beginning and ending at the Gurdwara Sahib Dasmesh Darbar (12885 85 Ave.). With a variety of floats and community groups in the procession, the parade heads south on 128 Street, proceeds west along 82 Avenue, heads south again on 124 Street, continues along 75 Avenue and then 76 Avenue, before going north again on 128 Street back to the temple grounds. Musicians and dancers will be performing on temporary stages alongside the parade route. Road closures will be in effect from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and drivers can expect delays if travelling between 72 and 88 Avenues, and Scott Road and King George Boulevard. Those attending the parade are encouraged to use transit. “The only problem last year, with so many people, was that there were bottlenecks along the route,” said Bual. “So we’re asking people to be patient, allow for some extra time. Enjoy the stages along the way.” The day is capped off with a big fireworks display around 10 p.m. off the roof of the gurdwara.

Community to kick off a new year with a new Sikh calendar Call it one of the biggest gatherings to celebrate a New Year’s resolution ever. The Vaisakhi celebration in mid-April (on Saturday, April 20 this year) begins a new calendar in the Sikh religion. This year, there’s a groundswell to do more community work within Surrey, says celebration spokesperson Moninder Singh Buar, meaning there will be an increase in the amount of food, time and money donated to various causes.

“Living in Surrey, this is what do we do for Surrey.” In Sikh religion, it’s called seva, or selfless service. “What benefit can we be to the overall community?” says Buar of the concept. “There’s an increase amongst youth who want to do things.” As an example, he cites an abundance of food in the various Sikh temples that can be donated into the community.

Education will also be a big component of seva for many in 2013, Buar predicts, with the Sikh community helping out with the multicultural aspect to education. Hopefully that will take the form of a multifaith group that would visit Surrey schools, and “one or two concerts or larger public events, that maybe aren’t religious-based, they are more culture-based,” Buar says. “We’re trying to teach the similarities in life.” Buar also expects more Sikhs will get

involved in politics, going to town hall meetings and such. “There’s a youth engagement more from the social welfare side,” Buar said. “It’s sort of a new year within the Punjabi calendar. “It’s sort of the way you would come up with a New Year’s resolution. We kind of come up with a few of ours.” The Vaisakhi parade begins at 9:30 a.m. this Saturday. – Kevin Diakiw

Breeding season for herons

A

stalking heron is the epitome of stealth. It stands perfectly still, eyes focused intently, enormous bill poised, ready. Then comes the strike and with deadly precision, the prey is grabbed and swallowed down that long, sinuous neck. A few minutes to cope with the wriggling, then it is back to stalking. This is a great time of year to watch great blue herons. Large groups gather in the shallow intertidal, ready to feed on starry flounder, shiner perch Anne Murray and other fish which move closer into shore as the water warms up. It is the start of the heron’s breeding season. Their bills turn bright orange, delicate plumes adorn their necks, and they build stick nests crazily high up in maples and conifers along the shore. The majority of great blue herons prefer company. Heron colonies are noisy, smelly places, with multiple nests in each tree and young herons soon splashing the leaves below with grey guano. Fallen dead chicks and fish

Terry Carr photo

Great blue herons can be seen frequently throughout the Peninsula. remains add to the smelly debris. Herons are sometimes mistakenly called ‘cranes,’ but these are a different family entirely. Great blue herons on the B.C. coast are a separate sub-species from elsewhere in North America and of “special concern” to the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada. These magnificent birds are sensitive to disturbance at nesting colonies. Their population is relatively small, and suitable nesting and feeding locations are becoming ever scarcer along our developed shorelines. The increase in bald eagle populations since the pesticide DDT was banned has led to some bald eagles causing havoc in heronries. The largest heronry in the Pacific Northwest was the one

at Point Roberts, which was suddenly abandoned a few years ago. Most of those herons relocated to the Tsawwassen bluff overlooking Roberts Bank, and hundreds of herons can be seen flying over the ferry causeway to feed in the intertidal area. Once the chicks are reared, the colony disperses and herons become more frequent in field margins and along ditches, where they catch frogs and snakes. Great blue herons are also commonly seen in wetland areas of Surrey and White Rock. Look for them along the tide line in Mud Bay, Boundary Bay, and Semiahmoo Bay, and roosting in neighbouring fields. Anne Murray, the author of two nature books available in local book stores, writes monthly in the Peace Arch News – www. natureguidesbc.com

Tom Godwin was “passionate” about environment

Surrey activist remembered Kevin Diakiw Black Press

A leader in Surrey’s environmental movement has died. Tom Godwin, a longterm member of the city’s Environmental Advisory Committee and founding member of Surrey Environmental Partners, died peacefully on the morning of March 9 at Surrey Memorial Hospital. Godwin had been suffering from an undetermined neurological condition. He was 75. Godwin had been a powerhouse on the City of Surrey’s Environmental Advisory Committee until Oct. 20, 2004, when he tendered his resignation. “We have all watched the vast areas of clearcutting of large old trees going on in our community, the rows on rows of box housing, inadequate storm water management and the total lack of any

Surrey activist Tom Godwin with his dog, Nubi. environmental input,” Godwin wrote in his Oct. 16 resignation letter to committee chair Dr. Roy Strang. “…what I have seen go on in Surrey just makes me want to cry. Having an advisory committee, even

though impotent, somehow gives this mad rush of development legitimacy and I can’t be part of that.” Godwin touched a nerve with the public, creating a huge outcry. The result was a

complete revamping of the city’s tree protection bylaw that now stands as one of the strongest of its kind in the region. Godwin, also a cardiologist and author, practised what he preached. On his 85-acre parcel of property in Tynehead, he planted more than 10,000 trees, created a lake and helped preserve a salmon stream. Asked why he went to all the trouble, Godwin responded: “Isn’t it the right thing to do?” Longtime friend Dr. Roy Strang described Godwin as extremely authentic. “He was sincere about his passion for the environment,” Strang said. “He wasn’t just paying it lip service.” To secure its future, he applied to have his property rezoned from residential to agriculture. He is survived by his wife Elaine, a brother, four sons and 10 grandchildren.

youth voice

lowering the voting age to 16 also deserves mention. As Canadians, we also need to have an open conversation on mandatory voting. Though this issue has been raised in the past, it is time that we reignite this conversation and have a healthy debate on its pros and cons. It has certainly proven quite a success in Australia. In that country, there has been a 95 per cent voter turnout rate. However, because such steps are unlikely to be fully debated in the near future, it is important for youth to prove that we really do care about the state of our government. We must not only vote in the May 14 provincial election, but must also educate ourselves about the candidates, political parties and their agendas. As we prepare for future elections, I urge my fellow youth to shed their layer of apathy and get out there to vote. To convert that piece of paper into a representation of your voice is certainly something that I look forward to. Do not underestimate the power of your vote. As Ralph Emerson wrote: “Those who stay away from the election think that one vote will do no good: ‘Tis but one step more to think one vote will do no harm.” Japreet Lehal writes monthly for Peace Arch News on youth issues.

Surrey’s Canada Day is a winner. The city, alongside special-event producer John Donnelly and Associates, has been awarded the 2013 National Star Award for Best Public Entertainment Event in Canada for the July 1 celebration last year. The National Star Awards were announced at the Canadian Event Industry Awards gala held in Toronto on March 22, 2013. The Canadian Event Industry Star Awards are the country’s most prominent national event industry awards. “On behalf of city council, I’d like to congratulate and thank our many partners, sponsors and staff for staging the best Canada Day nationwide,” said City of Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts. The event, held at the Millennium Amphitheatre in Cloverdale, included motocross demos, Peak Performance Project double stage, amusement rides, soccer zone, and numerous family activities.

Q

uestion: Until about six years ago, my mother-in-law was pretty sharp about business matters especially about saving money. In order to save the costs of probating her will she put all of her assets in joint tenancy with herself, my husband and her daughter with the intention that they get her whole estate. She now has Alzheimer’s and can’t legally sign anything. About a month ago my husband died and now all of my mother-in-law’s assets are held in joint tenancy between herself and her daughter. I think I should get my husband’s half of my mother-in-law’s estate, but a friend says I won’t get anything. Is my friend right, and can I do anything about it?

A

nswer: Your friend is right. Your sister-in-law will get everything and there is nothing you can do about it. NEW CLIENTS WELCOME

Life-Changing Debt SoLutionS

TransLink plans to send more taxis for elderly and disabled clients, rather than HandyDarts.

“I was tired of debt. It was time for a permanent change.”

being used to cover more taxi service, said TransLink spokesman Derek Zabel. The targeted routes tend to have a lot of deadhead time when a HandyDart must return empty after carrying only one or two people, he said. “It’s not the best use of your resources,” Zabel said. “So if we use a taxi for that it cuts out all the deadhead time.” He said there will be no change in the total spent by TransLink on custom transit, but an estimated 7,000 more trips will be made via taxi due to the greater efficiency. HandyDart buses will still be dispatched to users who aren’t

Debt restructuring

Jeff Nagel Black Press

HandyDart users may find they’re increasingly riding taxis instead, especially if they live south of the Fraser. TransLink has largely stopped dispatching HandyDart minibuses on four lesser-used runs in favour of sending taxis to carry elderly and disabled clients. The first phase of the changes began April 1 and targeted four routes – Surrey to New Westminster, Surrey to Vancouver, White Rock to Vancouver and Delta to Vancouver. Money saved by not running HandyDarts on those routes is

able to take taxis, he stressed. The strategy of making more use of taxis – which are cheaper to run than HandyDart when few passengers are carried – was a recommendation of both the independent TransLink Commissioner last year and a provincial audit. The next phase of changes will convert more HandyDart runs to taxi at times when the service isn’t heavily used, mainly evenings and weekends. Taxis already accounted for about 21,000 custom transit trips a year dispatched through HandyDart, or about two per cent of the total.

Kirpans now allowed in B.C. courts Sheila Reynolds Black Press

Initiated Sikhs wishing to wear a kirpan into B.C. courthouses may now do so. The B.C. Ministry of Justice changed policy last week to allow visitors to carry the ceremonial daggers into public courthouse areas. Those wishing to do so will be required to identify themselves to sheriffs and comply with size restrictions. The length of kirpan, including the sheath, may not exceed 19 centimeters, while the blade can’t be longer than 10 cms. They must also be worn under clothing and not be easily accessible. Until now, anyone with a kirpan was asked by sheriffs to put their daggers or swords in their vehicles or stay outside the courthouse. Sheriffs will still assess risk factors, by asking what type of proceeding is being attended and the person’s connection to the case. Sheriffs will have the discretion to refuse kirpans into the courthouse on a caseby-case basis. The guidelines bring

B.C. in line with Alberta and Toronto courts, as well as all Parliament of Canada buildings, where kirpans are already allowed. The new B.C. rule took effect last Friday. The kirpan symbolizes spiritual wisdom and the duty to stand against injustice. The Sikh code of conduct requires the kirpan to be worn at all times, along with four other articles of faith. The World Sikh Organization (WSO) of Canada worked with the Ministry of Justice and B.C. Sheriff Service to come up with the kirpan guidelines. WSO general legal counsel Palbinder Kaur Shergil said it’s essential for the kirpan to be accommodated if members of the Sikh community are to access courts to perform their civic duty and be part of the legal system. “We are confident that the B.C. courthouse guidelines for the kirpan balance both security and the freedom of religion rights of the Sikh community,” said Shergil.

Grow your own fresh fruit!

Rapid-Bus use, tolls, account for decrease

Port Mann traffic down 5%

Start your strawberries for summer

Free Seminar Saturday

Jeff Nagel Black Press

Use of the new Port Mann Bridge is down around five per cent since tolls took effect in December. Transportation ministry officials say 200,000 fewer vehicles crossed the toll bridge in February – 2.7 million compared to 2.9 million in February of 2012 before the crossing was tolled. About 100,000 fewer vehicles crossed in January, compared to three million a year before. Transportation Investment Corp. spokesman Greg Johnson said bridge traffic is continuing to fluctuate and it will take time before it stabilizes. “We are seeing similar volumes to this time last year,” he said. Asked if the drop in Port Mann traffic equates to a similar increase in traffic at non-tolled bridges, Johnson said he could not speculate on that. Some of the drop in vehicle traffic may be due to drivers parking their cars and taking the new #555 express bus from north Langley over the Port Mann to New Westminster. More than 38,000 passengers rode the rapid bus in March, TransLink spokesman Derek Zabel said. The service runs every 15 minutes at peak times and the 47-seater highway coaches typi-

The province also released GPS measurements of the time taken to travel Highway 1 before and after the new bridge opened. Drivers going from Surrey to Coquitlam have cut their travel time by nearly 60 per cent, the transportation ministry said. It takes 11 minutes now to travel from 176 Street in Surrey to Brunette Avenue at Lougheed via the new bridge, compared to

35 minutes before it was built. The gains aren’t yet as dramatic for motorists travelling further into Burnaby and Vancouver on Highway 1, where freeway construction continues throughout this year. Morning commuters now take 40 minutes to get to Boundary Road at Grandview from 200 Street in Langley, compared to 68 minutes prior to the new bridge. That time is projected to drop again to 23 minutes when the rest of the work on the highway is finished.

LOVE IN THE TIME OF…2013 B.C.’s new Family Law Act On March 18, 2013, British Columbia’s new Family Law Act came into force, bringing significant changes to the rights and obligations of married and common law spouses. Individuals in common law relationships woke up on March 18th to discover that they are now treated essentially the same as legally married spouses. The new Act repeals B.C.’s former (and arguably outdated) Family Relations Act, and is intended to modernize our provincial family law regime to reflect the changing model of the Canadian family. With a steady rise in divorce rates, blended families, and longterm common law relationships, the family unit is changing, and the law is evolving to respond. Under the new Act, couples who have lived together in a marriagelike relationship for two years or more are considered spouses and are subject to the same rules as married couples, including the rules governing division of property. This is a significant change in the law, and will have a far reaching effect on British Columbians who are currently in common law relationships. The type of property that is subject to division has also changed, with certain categories of property being presumptively “excluded”from division, such as inheritances, gifts, and property that a spouse comes into the relationship with. What is shared upon separation, however, is the increase in value of any such excluded property. Another change is the introduction of the concept of “family debt”. Under the Act, debt incurred by either spouse over the course of the relationship is considered “family debt”and is shared equally by the spouses on relationship breakdown, regardless of whose name the debt is in. Couples who do not want the property and debt division rules to apply must opt-out by making a written agreement. As a result, written agreements will become increasingly common and very important, particularly for those in common law relationships who never intended to be governed by the rules for married couples. The fundamental question for all couples to consider is whether they wish their property and debts to be divided as provided by the Family Law Act. If not, a written agreement should be made. Failure to turn one’s mind to these issues in advance may result in unintended consequences if your relationship breaks down. For more information on the new law or to inquire about making an agreement, contact Kirsten Wharton at BRAWN KARRAS & SANDERSON 604-542-5344 or by email at kwharton@bkslaw.com.

White Rock Players Club’s new season features many screen-to-stage adaptations

Play lineup draws heavily on Hollywood Alex Browne Arts Reporter

White Rock Players Club is going to the movies. The newly announced 2013-’14 season offers a dash of movie-related razzle-dazzle as part of a more sophisticated marketing approach to wooing audiences and boosting the subscription base. The club took the unusual, if not unprecedented, step of presenting the season – and actors reading previews of the plays – at a well-attended reception for subscribers and members of the theatre community at Coast Capital Playhouse last weekend.

“When we sat down to pick the plays, we wanted to find a theme that would overarch the whole season,” the club’s new artistic director, Ryan Mooney, told the audience Sunday. The selected plays, he said, “all tie into the movies.” “They’re shows that have been movies, or are about making movies or about celebrating movies.” First show of the season is the chilling Misery, a stage adaptation by Simon Moore of the Stephen King novel about an injured writer being nursed by his schizophrenic “number one fan,” notably filmed with James Caan and Kathy Bates in 1990.

presents

Be the change

The new Christmas pantomime (Nov. 29 - Dec. 28) is Rumpelstiltskin, by Dave Baron (who brought new life to the tradition last year with Pinocchio) and it also has a distinctly movie-related twist that is currently being kept under wraps. For the first show of the new year, the club will present its first non-panto musical in many seasons, the Stephen Sondheim classic, A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum (Feb. 12 - March 1), still fondly remembered for the 1965 film adaptation with Zero Mostel and Jack Gilford. Ron Hutchinson’s wry comedy, Moonlight and Magnolias (April 2-19), will take

audiences back to the late 1930s for what purports to be an inside look at the making of Gone With The Wind – and how producer David O. Selznick, director Victor Fleming and writer Ben Hecht wrestled a screenplay out of a supposedly unadaptable novel. Concluding the season will be a Neil Simon perennial from the 1960s, Barefoot In The Park (June 4 - 21), the comic misadventures of a newlywed couple in New York, which was filmed with Jane Fonda and Robert Redford in 1967.

It may be a chance for local dog lovers to show off their favourite canines – but, musically at least, it’s also a ‘Salute To Youth.’ That’s the theme of the live stage offering ongoing entertainment at the White Rock Peninsula Rotary Club’s second annual Pooch Parade this Sunday coming to the boat launch area of West Beach from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Among the performers typifying young talent on the Semiahmoo Peninsula will be local country-folk favourites Alanna and Brianne and emerging singer Ava Carich, who was recently chosen as a finalist in the ongoing Diamond In The Ava Carich Rock contest at the Roadhouse Grille. Also showcased will be folk-rock singer-guitarist Tyson MacNamara and singersongwriter Lucas Cole. Wrapping up the concert will be a set by Joey Mullins and his band, Itchy Neighbourhood. Langley and Surrey-based band Mullins and Itchy Neighbourhood are moving forward with their Alanna music in spite of the tragedy that struck last month when lead singer Adam Dick succumbed to a heart attack. “Even though we only have three of us left in the group now, we’re still together as one,” Mullins said. “We’re still out here, practising and performing.” Twins Alanna and Brianne, just turned 15, have won accolades throughout the Lower Mainland Brianne over the past two years for performances featuring an eclectic mix of guitar-based folk, country and new country. They’ve also been well-received in Nashville and are planning a second trip there this year. While Carich, 14, has been singing in public a year, she’s managed to rack up 45 performances at local venues such as the Farmers’ market and the Good Day Sunshine Cafe, as well receiving the People’s Choice award in her school talent show. A guitarist for the last seven years, she’s also working on adding piano to her list of musical skills. McNamara, 19, has been playing guitar for five years and singing for only one. He enjoys playing to crowds and considers folk-rock his genre, while acknowledging influences such as Dave Matthews, Eddie Vedder and Mumford & Sons. North Delta singer-songwriter Cole, 18, describes his style as a melding of blues, folk and rock, influenced by the work of his idols Neil Young, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Bob Dylan and Bryan Adams. Also performing will be Crescent Beach Pipe and Drum Corps, and soprano Miriah Reitmeier, well known from local theatre productions, who will sing O Canada at opening ceremonies. Registration is by donation. Proceeds to support the Peninsula Rotary Club’s community projects.

Cast gets laughs › from page 31 she develops with Leon as he attempts to teach her the rudiments of mathematics (Sophie is clearly not quite as stupid as the rest of the villagers) provides a lot of the continued interest in the slim storyline. Scott Milne, as evil Count Gregor Yousekevitch, is another young performer of promise, and has some effective moments, particularly when Gregor gives proof of his devious nature. But he’s never quite able to come up with anything in his characterization to match the visual impact of Gregor’s arrival on stage, a bizarre sight gag I won’t spoil by relating here. Sheila Greentree and Ryan Johnson – both of whom have a natural comic touch – win their share of laughs as Sophie’s parents, scatterbrained Lenya and incompetent Dr. Zubritsky. Even though Simon’s script doesn’t give them anywhere much to go beyond denseness and forgetfulness, the actors’ strong sense of the ridiculous makes them always entertaining to watch. Helen Volkow as villager Yenchna, who milks cows upside down to get more cream and confuses

flowers with fish, makes the most of her comedic opportunities in one of the stand-out performances in the cast. And Ray Van Ieperen as sheep-losing shepherd Snetsky, Paul Ferancik as dopey butcher Slovitch, Clive Ramroop as far-fromefficient postman Mishkin and Martin Perrin as the officious Magistrate, are not far behind in using mobile countenances and instincts for physical humour to good advantage. Andrea Olund and Matthew Davenport’s unitized, odd-angled set is an effective solution to the problem of changing scenes quickly, as well as suggesting the off-kilter nature of the village. All in all, Fools is an entertaining evening, and the kind of wellproduced, conscientious community show that is well worthy of support. If none of it quite seemed to gel last Friday night, maybe it had more to with the temperature in the theatre – and the frozen faculties of the audience – than the intrinsic quality of the show. Fools runs to April 27. Tickets are available at 604-536-7535 or online at www. whitrerockplayers.ca

Semiahmoo orchestra to perform Friday

Strings keeping busy Alex Browne Arts Reporter

There’s a double reason to celebrate for the Semiahmoo Strings Orchestra. The first is the upcoming reunion with a notable guest performer of past seasons, baritone Alexander Dobson. He will perform a Robert Schumann master work, the song cycle Dichterliebe, conducted by ensemble founder Carla Birston Friday at 7:30 p.m. at Mount Olive Lutheran Church, 2350 148 St. The second is the publication of a Semiahmoo Stringsinspired book of beginner pieces for young violinists, by Carla’s husband, Harold, composer and cello instructor (and sometimes keyboardist) for the group. Excursions for the

Carla and Harold Birston, with Harold’s book. Violin is a collection of 21 pieces that Harold has been developing over the past decade. It also typifies the imagination and dedication that have helped make the Strings the outstanding training ground for youth musicians it has been for almost 25 years. What could be a very dry series of simple, limited pitch

b r i t i s h

melodies to help students familiarize themselves with each string, becomes, in Harold’s hands, a series of cleverly harmonized pieces for solo violin and piano that are both fun to play and enjoyable to listen to.

Dobson highlights show › from page 33 numbing folk melodies that used to be a staple of young players, they have a chance to gain confidence by playing everything from marches to a Viennese waltz or jazzy blues piece. The publishers only asked for a few changes, he said – mainly a simplification of the piano accompaniments so that most teachers could manage them. “I spent the last summer toning them down,” he said. “But I did try to keep the harmonies interesting.” The other component of what makes the Semiahmoo Strings great – the opportunity and inspiration to approach professional playing standards while working with professional performers – will be manifest in Friday’s concert. Not only will the Strings provide the musical setting for Dobson’s sensitive and expressive voice on the Schumann pieces – all settings of poetry by Heinrich Heine – but it will also tackle the melodies and subtle effects of Russian composer Alexander Borodin’s Second String Quartet. Also on the program will be a set of songs from Schubert’s Schwanengesang – also settings of Heine’s poetry – sung by Dobson and accompanied by the Strings. The Strings role in support of

Dobson is just as challenging as a concerto, Carla noted. “They all have to meld together – they have to learn not to be soloists,” she said. “It’s a great exercise in listening and accompanying.” The other challenge, she acknowledged, has been rehearsing separately from Dobson, who lives in Montreal, without being able to confer in detail on tempos and dynamics of phrasing and attack. But Dobson has helped by flying out to the West Coast early with his young son – the same age as the Strings’ youngest players – just for the concert. The pair also joined the Strings for some important bonding time at their annual Camp Charis retreat last weekend. “He’s so fabulous with the kids – he’s much more patient than I am, “ Carla laughed. “He’s a great role model for them – he’s a cool guy and such a serious musician at the same time.” The Strings’ even younger feeder group, the Demi-Semiahmoo Strings, will be featured in Handel’s Minuet from the Overture to Berenice and Saint-Saens ever-popular Danse Macabre. Tickets for the concert ($18, $10 seniors and students) are available at Tapestry Music or by calling 604-5381460.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Penticton Vees win twice on home ice; BCHL finals return to Surrey for Game 5

Series tied after Eagles drop two on road Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

What a difference a few days make. After winning the first two games of the BC Hockey League’s Fred Page Cup finals on home ice, the Surrey Eagles headed to Penticton in the driver’s seat in their best-of-seven series against the defending champion Vees. But now? Now it’s back to Square 1 for the Peninsula squad after the Vees evened the series earlier this week with home-ice wins in Games 3 and 4, both by identical 3-2 scores. In both games, held Monday and Tuesday at the South Okanagan Events Centre, the

two teams were tied after 40 minutes, but the the part of the Eagles, whose lone goal of the Vees outscored the Eagles 4-1 in the two third final frame came from Nic Pierog. periods combined, including a three-goal Surrey forward Anthony Brito – a 20-yearoutburst in Game 4 Tuesday that old affiliate player – scored the first ❝They found a quickly erased Surrey’s 1-0 lead. goal of Game 4.

“Penticton is a great team and I thought our group battled hard – that’s the reason it was tied in the third period both nights, but they found a way to win, and we found a way to lose. We didn’t get it done, and we need to be better for Game 5.” In Game 4 Monday, the Vees notched their first win of the best-of-seven series in part because of their ability to finally solve Santaguida, who was coming off a 50-save shutout at home in Game 2.

Rain washes out first two weekends

Tritons open with victory Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

After rain washed out their first two weekends of the BC Premier Baseball League schedule, the White Rock Tritons finally got a game in Tuesday, winning 3-1 against the North Delta Blue Jays at South Surrey Athletic Park. The game was supposed to be the Tritons’ fifth of the year, but double-headers against the Vancouver Cannons and North Shore Twins were rained out on backto-back weekends earlier this month. “We are so tired of practicing,” said Tritons head coach Russ

Smithson before Tuesday’s tilt with their Surrey rivals. “You see the other teams playing, getting into (regular-season form), and all you can do is practice, or sit and watch. It’s tough.” North Delta had also been beset by rain, and they too, had yet to play a regular-season game until Tuesday evening. Both teams showed signs of rust Tuesday – or their bats did, at least – as neither team scored until the Blue Jays plated two in the fourth inning. The Tritons responded with two in the sixth, and won the game in the bottom of the seventh inning when a

Daniel Cassino sacrifice fly scored Kieran O’Connor from third base. Scott Doucet, pitching three and one-third innings in relief, picked up the win for White Rock. He allowed zero hits while striking out eight. At the plate, Tritons’ designated hitter Matt Stephens had a double and two RBI, and second baseman Liam Rihela had two hits. White Rock plays again tonight (Thursday) in Langley against the Blaze. On Sunday, they host the Nanaimo Pirates for two games at South Surrey Athletic Park, at 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.

‘We’re in the finals for a reason’ › from page 35 Cody DePourcq – one of the few holdovers from last year’s championship team – scored the winner 10:53 into the third period, when he converted a pass from Travis Blanleil on a two-on-one. “I didn’t get on top of the puck well enough,” Santaquida said after the game. “He made a good shot over top of my pad. Right in the little corner. I thought I had it, to be honest. Kind of kicking myself for that.” For DePourcq, the goal was just his second in 13 playoff games. “I have been getting a lot of chances lately, (but) they just haven’t gone in for me,” he said. “It’s nice to get that goal, but it’s even better to get the win.” Pierog – with his ninth goal of the playoffs – and Brady Shaw, on the power play, scored for the Eagles, who managed 28 shots on Vees’ netmidner Chad Katunar. Game 5 is scheduled for tonight (Thursday), 7 p.m. at South Surrey Arena. The series will return to Penticton for Game 6 Sunday and, if necessary, Game 7 will be played in South Surrey Monday.

A group of athletes from the Surrey Gymnastics Society travelled to Prince George earlier this month, and returned from the B.C. Championships with impressive results. The group of 15 won a total of four allaround medals, and includes two provincial champions. All four male athletes cracked the top five in their respective categories, and three own all-around medals. Treyson Cerrato, 11, was the all-around champion in the Level 4 group, adding gold medals on rings and high bar, a silver on floor and parallel bars and a bronze on pommel horse. In the Level 4 13-andover group, Spencer Principe just missed winning a provincial championship. The 12-year-old was onetenth of a point out of first, placing second overall after winning gold on pommel horse, silver on rings and parallel bar and placing fifth on high bar. Kevin Hignell, 14, was one back of Principe and took the all-around bronze medal. He won silver on vault and bronze on pommel horse. Bronze on rings and parallel bars lifted Alon Zvikler to fifth place all-around in Level 3 (under-13) group. Zvikler, 12, was also fourth on floor and pommel horse and fifth on high bar. Alexa Cannon, 10, won all-around gold in the Level 2 Tyro group. A silver medal on beam lifted Samantha Lal, 12, to seven allaround in Level 2 Novice. Twin sisters Jillian and Jennifer Principe contested the Level 3 tyro group, with Jillian taking gold on beam, and Jennifer earning a fifth-place score on beam.

Langley’s Waterstone to release next phase

Appealing to the downsizing market As the baby boomers get older, many of them are looking to find a singlestorey home that they can lock up and leave when they decide to go away for awhile. The newest phase at Langley’s Waterstone, called Esplanade, has been catering to downsizers with spacious floorplans and a vibrant community feel. “These are the largest ever floorplans offered at Waterstone,” says Scott Brown of Colliers International. “It’s also the first lofted product in the area. That loft gives you 100 square feet of extra living space.” Along with that extra space, the homes with lofts will have 14-foot

ceilings. Brown notes that it can be hard for downsizers to move from a larger single-family home to a small condominium, especially when they’ve been there for many years and possibly raised a family. “There’s an emotional connection to your home,” he says. One of the things that he has found downsizing buyers asking for is storage. People accumulate plenty of possessions over the years, and sometimes aren’t ready to part with all of it quite yet. For more information about Esplanade, visit waterstoneliving.ca or call 604-530-5399.

matching backsplash. Most include a his-and-hers vanity, which is another one of those convenient details. Located in the charming Semiahmoo neighbourhood, residents will find everything they can possibly imagine on their doorstep. From dining at one of the delicious local restaurants to shopping at nearby Semiahmoo Shopping Centre, Morgan Crossing or Grandview Corners, nothing is out of reach. Leisure and recreation is also close by, with parks, pools, arenas and clubs in the neighbourhood, as well as White Rock beach. If it’s a bit of

culture you’re looking for, you’ll find an art gallery, theatre and museum just minutes away. On-site, homeowners at Adagio will find a residents lounge with chef ’s demonstration kitchen, double-sided fireplace, televisions, pool table and a large garden and patio area. There is also a fitness centre with a steam room. “The response so far has been extremely overwhelming,” West says. “There’s nothing like this in the area.” Homes at Adagio start at $288,800. For more information, visit www. AdagioByBoffo.ca or call 604-531-6659.

Attention to detail

Boffo brings unique condo project to South Surrey By Kerry Vital

Boffo Developments Ltd. is bringing hotel-style sophistication to South Surrey with its newest development, Adagio. With a variety of floorplans and amazing features, there are plenty of things that set the project apart. “The smallest details can make a difference,” says Boffo Marketing and Sales Director Karen West. “Boffo is known for its obsession with the details.” Among those details include an amazing community courtyard with trees, paths and seating areas. “That courtyard will be sensational,” West says. “It’s a great communal living space.” The first phase of 50 condominum homes is currently selling, with buyers able to take possession before Christmas. The one-bedroom and den, twobedroom and den and three-bedroom homes are spacious and inviting, with nine-foot ceilings (up to 15 feet on the top floor), expansive windows, and large terraces and patios that are perfect for entertaining.
