Hockey team set for Western Canada Cup in Nanaimo

Eagles net B.C. title in double-overtime Nick Greenizan Staff Reporter

The Eagles have landed atop the BC Hockey League. The South Surrey-based junior hockey squad captured the league title Sunday night in dramatic fashion over the Penticton Vees, winning in double-overtime when Adam Tambellini – son of former Edmonton Oilers general manager Steve Tambellini and younger brother of former Canuck, Jeff – ended Game 6 with a one-timed shot from the slot 2:34 into the second OT frame. The goal gave Surrey a 3-2 victory and a 4-2 win in the best-of-seven series. The Fred Page Cup is

the fourth in Eagles’ team history, having also been won here in 1997, 1998 and 2005. “To be the champ – everybody wants to do it, it’s crazy,” said Eagles forward Brady Shaw after the game. “It still hasn’t sunk in that we’re the best in B.C. right now. Hopefully after this we can prove that we’re the best outside of B.C., too.” The Eagles now advance to the Western Canada Cup, which begins this weekend in Naniamo. Sunday’s OT victory was the first game of the series won by the road team. Surrey, who also claimed a regular-season title as the BCHL’s top team, opened the series last week with back-to-back wins at South Surrey Arena. Not to be outdone, the

defending BCHL and Royal Bank Cup champion Vees – who set a North American junior ‘A’ hockey record last year with 42 straight victories – returned fire in Games 3 and 4, to even the series at 2-2. The championship series – considered by many around the BCHL to be the best in recent memory – then returned to South Surrey Thursday for Game 5. Like the series-ending Game 6, the fifth game was also a back-and-forth affair that ended in overtime, when rookie forward Kevan Killistoff won the game for the Eagles. The top teams from the western tournament in Nanaimo move on to nationals in P.E.I. For more, see page 33.

Home attack reveals 8,000 drug cookies Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A home invasion that apparently targeted a cache of marijuanalaced cookies triggered a brief lockdown at Earl Marriott Secondary Thursday. Const. Janelle Shoihet said police seized approximately 8,000 homemade cookies “believed to contain marijuana” during a search of the home, located across the street from the high school, in the 15800block of North Bluff Road. Officers were alerted to an assault at the home just before noon April 18. According to Shoihet, it occurred when a 22-year-old man interrupted a break-in to his residence. The victim was hit in the head with a crowbar, but was able to fend off two invaders. Two males, described as approximately five-foot-seven and six feet tall, wearing black hoodies, fled the scene, running north across North Bluff Road into South Surrey, Shoihet said. Investigators executing a search warrant on the home later that evening discovered the cookies and an undetermined amount of marijuana. › see page 4 Seed

Upwards of 200,000 people crowd the streets of Newton Saturday for Surrey’s annual Vaisakhi parade. The event – which was without incident, according to police – celebrates the foundation of the Khalsa and includes a variety of floats, performers and a bounty of free food, a tribute to the harvest and a reflection of Sikh values: selfless service, unity and community sharing.

Merchant groups in U.S. and Canada oppose entry charges

Border-fee idea riles those on both sides Jeff Nagel Black Press

Travellers driving south to Washington State may be dinged with a border-crossing fee that U.S. officials are eyeing as a potential option to raise money. There’s no indication yet how much it might be, but Canadians who go to the U.S. by air or sea already pay a $5.50 customs fee, which is often built into airline ticket prices. The Department of Homeland Security is to study the idea and report back on its feasibility within nine months. The directive to investigate indicates it would apply to all passenger vehicles and pedestrians crossing the border. It doesn’t specify whether all occupants of a car would be charged, but that appears likely as it does

indicate bus and train operators would be expected to charge their passengers. Nor is it clear whether it would be levied both entering and leaving the U.S. Bellingham Chamber of Commerce president Ken Oplinger told Black Press he assumes the fee would apply on all motorists crossing the border –  Nexus pass holders would not be exempt. The potential toll on border crossers would generate new revenue for the department, which has been forced by arbitrary U.S. budget cuts to reduce customs staffing levels. “We’re opposed to it,” Oplinger said, warning it could do serious damage to the Whatcom County economy. The Surrey Board of Trade also opposes the idea, even though it wants to reduce

cross-border shopping. “This is not the solution,” said CEO Anita Huberman, adding the Surrey Board of Trade backs Canadian tariff policy reform so Canadian merchants can compete on a more level playing field with U.S. retailers. “Our position at the board of trade is not to be protectionist at the borders.” Oplinger said the fee would annoy Canadians and deter some of them from coming south to shop, particularly South of Fraser residents heading across for gas and groceries. But he said he’s most concerned the process of collecting the fee may dramatically lengthen border waits. “If everyone has to stop now to dig around for change in order to cross the border, that’s going to increase the time,” he said. “That’s

certainly going to make for longer lines.” Oplinger said it’s possible that separate feecollection points could be set up, rather than have it all done at the primary booth. Fees on Canadians have been suggested before and Oplinger hopes they’ll be defeated again. The idea quickly came under fire from Lower Mainland shoppers on social media. “This is a joke right,” tweeted Surrey resident Steven Sarai, while others said they’d never pay a fee to cross. Several U.S. politicians in border states also oppose the idea, warning it would hurt the American economy if fewer Canadians visit. A February poll found nearly three-quarters of Metro and Fraser Valley residents regularly cross the border to go shopping.

Benefits of Foundation Skills Assessment questioned by trustee

Stop misuse of school tests: Larsen Sheila Reynolds Black Press

A Surrey school trustee wants the province to either stop the “misuse” of Foundation Skills Assessment (FSA) results, or eliminate the controversial tests altogether and replace them with something else. Trustee Laurie Larsen made the suggestion to her fellow board of education members at a public board meeting Thursday evening. The FSAs are given to B.C. Grade 4 and 7 students annually and measure reading comprehension, writing and numeracy skills. The tests are administered in January and February, with individual results available to parents and teachers by late March. Overall district and school results are posted online. The problem, said Larsen, is that organizations such as the Fraser Institute, an independent public policy research group, take the test results and rank schools provincewide based on the scores. “They rank them and from there, parents

and other people draw conclusions She suggested other randomized that shouldn’t be drawn,” argued testing is much more effective and Larsen. “The rankings are so misleadprovides the same “snapshot” of ing.

Developers wanting to build higher in White Rock’s town centre will now have to pay more for the bonus space – more than 15 times as much as before. Last week, White Rock council gave unanimous approval (with Coun. Louise Hutchinson absent) to Policy No. 511 – density bonus/ amenity contribution policy. The policy implements a flat rate of $323 per square metre ($30/sq.ft.) for density above three storeys and/or a floor area ratio (FAR) of 1.75. The previous rate was $20 per metre (less than $2/sq.-ft.). A plan to change the policy to incorporate increases was first announced by Mayor Wayne Baldwin during his state-of-the-city address last fall. Initially, a scale that started at $108 per square metre and climbed to $538 was suggested. Council heard last week that the flat rate was recommended after research – including a look at Coquitlam’s town centre – determined a hierarchy could actually negatively impact the city’s goal to increase density in the town centre. “Essentially, if the rate at the higher densities is too high, no one will build to those densities, the plan (for town centre) will not be achieved, and there won’t be enough residential population to support the business area,” Paul Stanton, the city’s director of planning, explains in a report. “The city will lose amenities and they’ll also lose tax dollars.” Outside the town centre, the amenity contribution will be calculated on a project-by-project basis. Council did not discuss the policy April 15 before voting, however former alderman Ken Jones criticized the flat rate during question period, “Why is the amenity bylaw allowing multi-million dollar penthouses to get by with only $30 a square foot?” Jones asked. When Baldwin pointed out the previous rate was $1.92/sq.-ft., Jones said it is “not fair” that taxpayers have to foot the bill.

Purchased by the city in 2010, this former church site will be home at times to various city departments.

Fathers eyes new chambers Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

square feet have been used largely for storage. Fathers said its upper floor would be ideal for council chambers and multi-functional use; space underneath could be rented out. The existing council chambers would be ideal space for the city’s currently cramped development services department, she said. And, moving those offices would open up an opportunity to shift other lower-floor departments into better space as well. Council is expected to discuss Fathers’ motion during its next

meeting, set for April 29. She is optimistic it will be supported. “It’s such a great building and it’s not being used to the best that it can be,” she said. “We are definitely ready to move forward.” City manager Dan Bottrill said Wednesday that regardless of council’s decision April 29, the former church building will temporarily house all of the city’s departments at various times during upcoming renovations of city hall’s heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system. The majority of that work is expected to start in late summer.

White Rock politicians could soon be making decisions for the city from new quarters, if one councillor has her way. Coun. Helen Fathers announced last week she is seeking support from her fellow council members to have staff explore what it would cost to upgrade the cityowned building at 1174 Fir St. to accommodate council chambers and use by community groups. “I think we all know that the council chambers need updating,” Fathers told Peace Arch News.

Opposition to a proposed White Rock highrise is growing. Residents gearing up for next week’s public hearing on the matter took their concerns with the Vidal Street project to the sidewalks Saturday, carrying placards and collecting signatures in hopes of sending White Rock politicians a clear message. Fiona MacDermid, who lives across from the proposed site, was among area residents who displayed their objection to the 12-storey project. “I think we’re sort of very frustrated and fed up, and I think maybe it’s the only way to let people know how we feel down at city hall,” MacDermid said. The plan proposes 12 townhomes and 97 apartment units at 1467 to 1519 Vidal St., and will be the subject of a public hearing on April 29. Council voted 4-2 on March 25 to move it forward for public discussion, with Coun. Al Campbell and Mayor Wayne Baldwin opposed; Coun. Helen Fathers, who had voiced opposition at the March 11 land-use committee meeting, was absent. City staff had recommended rejection, based on concerns with proposed heights and densities for the area, the loss of mature trees, the potential for traffic increase

MacDermid said protesters are not anti-development – “but we’re against crazy development.” However, one resident of the 14-unit Mariners’ Reach – the subject property – said he knows of many who support the plan. John Duke said he believes those who oppose it perhaps aren’t aware of its benefits, including a plan to devote one-third of the lot to public space – something that would not be possible with a townhouse project on the site. “When I see townhouse projects being built here, they’re nice but they cover virtually every bit of land that they can,” said Duke, a 13-year resident of the area. The planned highrise is “a very nice-looking concrete building,” he added. “I can understand (opponents’) concerns. They’re valid. But this open space allows

for the trees that are there to be retained. (The plan is) something that I think people should take a look at.” Duke described the proponents as “one of the best developers around.” “There’s certainly lots of support for a project like this. From what I’m reading, I don’t think they’ve heard all the benefits to this.” Word of Saturday’s protest plan was shared at a meeting held Thursday evening at the White Rock Community Centre. Organizer Lillian Zubor – also a Vidal Street resident – said strategies discussed by 30 attendees included a “call to action.” “We don’t want to appear that we’re against development because you can’t stop progress,” she said. “At the same time, we can’t put the whole world in White Rock. “Something’s got to give.”

ALR needs to be refocused

T

hursday marked a significant anniversary for Surrey and the entire province. It was 40 years ago, on April 18, 1973, that Dave Barrett’s NDP government passed into law the Agricultural Land Reserve, then considered to be among the most progressive pieces of legislation of its kind in Canada, if not North America. With so little arable farmland in the province, and rapid population growth threatening what remained, the provincial government of the day decided to set aside areas for agricultural production and to prevent such land being subdivided for industrial and residential purpose. There’s little doubt the ALR has been good for Surrey and the province as a whole. While the implementation of the ALR was fought bitterly by farmers, developers and speculators, without it Surrey likely would have succumbed to suburban sprawl decades ago. In the years prior to the implementation of the ALR, between 4,000 and 6,000 hectares of farmland was lost annually to non-farming uses across B.C. Today, productive farmland is growing, from 2.3 million hectares in 1991 to 2.6 million in 2011, according to the Ministry of Agriculture’s own figures. But 40 years on, the nature of agriculture has changed drastically. Produce can be cheaply grown almost anywhere on earth and shipped to B.C. the next day, putting major pressures on local producers. Greenhouse growing requires no soil whatsoever, and can increase the annual yield from any given hectare of farm land. However, the large facilities required strike some as an industrial use, not an agricultural one. Meanwhile, pressure to develop ALR land has never been greater. Since so much has changed in the past 40 years, it is imperative the ALR changes as well. But the ALR has a different purpose depending on who you ask. Is its purpose to protect traditional farming practices, thus preserving pastoral viewscapes and wintering bird habitat? Or is it a means to contain suburban sprawl and encourage denser development? Or is the purpose of the ALR to improve the province’s food security, ensuring B.C. has safe and regulated year-round food sources, reducing our carbon footprint and our reliance on products shipped from all corners of the world? So regardless of what party is elected May 14, legislators in Victoria will need to ask themselves this important question: What is the purpose of the ALR, and how can it be improved to that end? The agricultural industry has evolved greatly in the past 40 years, so too have public priorities, and the ALR needs to as well.

So far this week you’ve said…

yes 13% no 87% 77 responding

The NDP are not calling for a moratorium on natural-gas production. They’re calling for yet another “review,” one of many vague, wobbly positions that have been adopted by both dominant parties. An earlier premier named Glen Clark became famous for “freezing” things like ferry fares and car-insurance rates. Now Christy Clark is “freezing” personal income tax rates for five years, and carbon tax rates too. That implies she’s planning to win this election and the next one, at a time when it is unclear whether she can even hold her own seat in Vancouver-Point Grey. The BC Liberals will cut small business taxes by a point, some time in the next five years. They will also increase income tax on large businesses and personal income of more than $150,000, but that’s not mentioned in their platform, since it goes against 12 years of their policy as a government. • A clarification of last week’s column on the BC Conservative platform. Leader John Cummins informs me his plan to phase out the carbon tax does not include reversing the personal and business income tax rate reductions that were legislated as the fuel tax reached its current level. The platform asserts that total provincial revenues will continue to rise in the next four years, despite the uncompensated loss of $1 billion from the carbon tax.

No substitute for HandyDart Editor: Something has been puzzling me since the TransLink announcement that taxis will sometimes be used more than buses to save money (Cuts to HandyDart routes, April 18). This would make sense if TransLink owned the taxis, but under the present circumstances I don’t see how that works. My mother-in-law takes the HandyDart every week from Aldergrove to Surrey to spend the day with us. She pays only $2.50 for this service. More often, recently, she has returned home by a taxi sent out by HandyDart. She has often noted how expensive the taxi service is. Run by a private company, the normal charge would be about $70; she still only pays the $2.50, and the rest of the charge is subsidized. I don’t get how this can be cheaper than sending a HandyDart van – even empty – to pick her up. Surely gas and wages do not amount to more than $70 for a 30-km journey? The most sensible solution is for HandyDart to buy a few fueleconomic cars to serve this purpose, and they can be driven by drivers currently employed by HandyDart. This would preserve jobs as well as saving money, and the drivers used would be trained to help old people. The taxi drivers frequently just drive the car but do nothing to assist the old person into the car. This can be a serious problem for people who are unsteady on their feet and who is responsible if there is a fall and bones are broken? Eileen Spencer, Surrey

No comparison to Nazi regime Editor: Re: Misinformation a disservice, April 11 letters. In his letter to the editor, Hardy Staub made an unfortunate and offensive reference to Nazi Germany. Staub’s comparison of his local member of Parliament’s newsletter to the “government propaganda” produced in Nazi Germany is an affront not only to B.C.’s Jewish community but to all Canadians. Analogies between a MP’s flyer, no matter the disagreement, and the propaganda of the Nazi regime, which systematically murdered more than six million people, should be strongly avoided. Paul Goldman, Pacific Region, Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs

PST anomalies still tax us Editor: When the HST was eliminated and the PST and GST re-instated, I thought that it was going to go back to the same as it was pre-HST. Consumers used to get a tax break when it came to shopping for their

children, and I can’t remember if it was both taxes or just one that was charged if your child was under 13.   I just bought some baby clothes and was charged both PST and GST. What is the new law? Theresa Delaney, Surrey Editor’s note: Child-sized clothing is supposed to be PST-exempt.

‘Vision’ takes a back seat here Editor: With regards to the ongoing debate over development in White Rock, please allow me to comment. Good revitalization plans often succeed by making the complex seem simple. In established urban settings, one reason may be that only the clearest visions can lure entrenched stakeholders to put

aside their fears of change and pull together for a common future. The difficult legwork behind such visions, however, often belies their veneer of inevitability. Much hardheaded investigation must take place to sort through the complexities of real-estate economics, regulatory structures and patterns of ownership, and to account for such physical problems as infrastructure upgrading and environmental mitigation. Then there is the political process. Success here hinges on identifying objections before they can create difficulties in the approvals process. Herein lies a major problem in White Rock. Successive councils have treated the OCP as a guideline, rather than a document that strictly guides development. The OCP is the public’s instruction on how they want the city to be developed. Unfortunately, the OCP is frequently overruled in the interest of making developers happy and to fatten the

purse of an already-bloated city hall. Any waterfront plan must envision a two-stage approach. A “development plan” addresses things that can happen, then once the impact of new buildings and public areas has been established, the plan imagines its longer-term ‘vision.’ Sadly, vision routinely takes a back seat when it comes to responsible development in White Rock. One of the most important aspects of land-use planning is that the process provides a focal point for the cacophony of voices raised in hopes of influencing the course of urban change; many people have had a hand in the development of policy pertaining to the waterfront, but it is time for a comprehensive future focused plan. We must stop treating development in White Rock as piecemeal. There needs to be a collective vision for the future. Steven Hughes, White Rock

White Rock no longer has a working train station, and letter-writers suggest coal trains should be history here, too.

We remain a country in motion Editor: Re: National importance, April 4 letters. Regarding Jan Christoffersen’s letter, yes, the trains did open up the country and, at the time, it was good. Problem is, they were given way too much power and land. Times change and things should not be written in stone. Many railways have been discontinued in this country over the years, including a number going through Downtown Vancouver. Now there are homes, apartments, commercial and industry in their place. If you look way back in time of man’s history, nothing remains the same except such things as not learning from our past mistakes. We are way too busy killing our world with pollution and coal trains. As has been mentioned by Peace Arch News in the past, the main reason trains pass through our communities started way back in the early 1900s. As the trains got longer, the steam engines had trouble hauling those long trains up the hillside further east along the border. A deal was set up with White Rock and Surrey to run the train along the seaside on a level surface, and the railway would provide stations in White Rock and Crescent Beach. It was a way people could come to our beaches on an outing for the day. There were few trains back then and the loads were much less and lighter. There has been no service to those stations since the ’70s. With powerful diesel engines now, there is no reason to have trains going through busy beach communities. This so-called economic calamity Christoffersen mentions is ridiculous. The problem was that Surrey and the provincial and federal governments did not have the guts to really work on a more-feasible corridor for the railway. In 2003, Surrey had a corridor in mind, but nothing happened and they have probably let a lot

of this corridor fill in. Thus having a route where the impact would be the least is probably dust in the wind. Brian Lauder, Surrey n A lot has happened since the last spike was put in place on the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1885. Canadian history is not just about the benefits of the flow of settlers and goods westward on the CPR. It is about the development of representative government. Canada has moved beyond a political system in which large companies make all the decisions and people and their elected governments are reluctant to interfere. This is why the North American Free Trade Agreement, mentioned in glowing terms by letter-writer Jan Christoffersen, was opposed by a majority of Canadians. True, it has resulted in certain economic benefits, but the drawbacks are clearly illustrated by the lawsuit against the government by Lone Pine Resources because of a moratorium on fracking for natural gas in Quebec. Should not a government have the right to act on the mounting evidence that links fracking to contaminated drinking water and earthquakes? Nor is the concern about the transport of coal through White Rock a “special-interest commodity grudge.” Coal dust is known to have adverse affects on human health – a justification elsewhere for covering coal cars and routing them away from neighbourhoods. Governments need to govern. Restrictions on coaltrain traffic appear to be a threat to the economy because of faulty accounting methods, which only measure short-term profits. Christoffersen’s “calamity of nation-destructive proportions” is more likely to come from the burning of all these fossil fuels. David Anson, White Rock

Pacific Avenue residents upset at White Rock council’s decision last fall to reject a request to remove nine honey locust trees have renewed their call for action. In a delegation last month, Anne Torno and Asher Bell argued the trees – located west of the 15210 Pacific Ave. Ocean Ridge development they call home – do indeed need to go. View obstruction is worsening; and roots are invading gardens and posing a tripping hazard, Torno said. “They could conceivably create a crisis,” she told council. Last July, council instructed staff to look into the possibility of replacing all of the trees, after an application to have one of the nine removed was received and subsequently denied. Under the city’s former policy 611, the applicant could appeal to council if they disagreed with the staff ’s decision. In October, however, council voted unanimously to uphold the original decision. Torno said a subsequent application to remove the trees was filed in November, but that timing of a letter sent out to determine resident support was such that many in favour of the

File photo

Honey locust trees along Pacific Avenue are obstructing views and posing a tripping hazard, according to residents in the area. removal missed out on voting. That resulted in a finding of 61 per cent support, and denial of the application. Bell said the city’s current policy – adopted by council in January 2012 – “effectively values a no vote with twice the value of a yes vote.” It requires 65 per cent of those living within 30 metres of the trees to support their removal in order for the work to be approved. He noted that larger, national issues are decided by a 50-per-

cent-plus-one majority. “It’s a matter of discretion,” Bell said. “We got 61 per cent. (Prime Minister) Stephen Harper would love 61 per cent.” While Torno and Bell noted yet another resident is in the process of applying to have the trees removed, they asked council to consider a variance that would circumvent the need to spend the time and money on the matter again. Council voted unanimously to receive the delegation and materials provided by the residents.

outh Surrey student Gunjan Khatker brought home more than she expected from her first experience at a Canadian High Schools Model United Nations conference. She brought home a win. “I was expecting that it would be a good learning experience, which it was,” the Grade 9 Semiahmoo Secondary student said. But it was “really exciting” when she learned she’d earned top marks for a position paper she researched and wrote as a delegate representing the Central African country of Cameroon. “This is my first conference and I wasn’t expecting (to win),” Gunjan said. “I was just aiming to go there and do my best. “It was very nice because all my new friends were cheering for me.”

In addition to giving her insights to different people and cultures, the transient lifestyle gave her a sense of the world’s interconnectedness, she said. Issues happening thousands of miles away are often the subject of family dinner conversations. “Politics is always on the table,” her mom, Jaslien, said. Gunjan said her winning position paper took a month of research. She had to write on the African Union’s mission in Sudan and the exploitation of African countries by multinational companies, and offer solutions. For the Sudan mission – dealing with conflicts between rebel groups and the Sudanese

government – she proposed more non-governmental groups be deployed to the region to keep a closer watch on the government. Regarding the exploitation, she submitted that all multinational companies investing in Africa be taxed, “so all the wealth can’t be drained… so Africa’s own citizens have at least enough to survive.” Jaslien said news of her daughter’s award filled her with pride. “I told her it’s your first time, just go for the experience,” she said. “I couldn’t believe (she won). I literally was in tears.” For Gunjan, it has “absolutely” motivated her to do more. Exactly what that will translate to careerwise remains to be seen. She plans to pursue a university degree in science or math, “and then I just want to have a good life,” she said.

Fun Fun Park fundraiser set for April 28

Residents aim to give playground a boost Sarah Massah

O

Staff Reporter

cean Park community members are hoping to draw a large crowd to Fun Fun Park April 28 for a fundraiser benefitting the construction of a new playground. Kicked off by the Ocean Park Community Association, the campaign for an upgrade to playground equipment at the park on 128 Street aims to raise $35,000 to match the more than $35,000 grant from the City of Surrey. “They’re not only matching what we raise, but providing more. So there’s an opportunity to significantly recreate the whole image of Fun Fun Park,” said project spokesperson Philip DuMoulin. So far, organizers have received a $5,000 head start with a donation from the Ocean Park Community Association, said DuMoulin. “That got us on our way there,” he said, noting a thermometer outside of Ocean Park Hall tracks the progress of donations. Fun Fun Park has a history of community support behind it. In 1985, community volunteers took on the creation of the park as part of the first federal Volunteers in Parks program in B.C. Now, the community aims to recreate that effort with the

With children between the ages of six and 13, DuMoulin said he hopes that long after his family is done using the park, the renovated playground would be

a testament to the work done by volunteers and businesses. “The park has kind of been left, and it’s a well-used park. And in terms of a legacy, when my kids outgrow it, I feel like we

contributed to the community as well,” he said. In order to rally support, organizers have issued a family challenge for the event. If 290 families contribute $100, the

financial goal could be reached in a single day. For every donation of $20 or more, a tax receipt will be issued. And while the renovation will benefit many of the families in Ocean Park, DuMoulin added that the goal is to have a public space that appeals to everyone in the community. ❝When the “The make up of Ocean Park renovation is retirees, it’s is done, we young families think it would and it’s working be something professionals,” used by all he said. “We ages.❞ can’t just have a Fun Fun Park, Philip DuMoulin we need more, spokesperson a good crosssection. “When the renovation is done, we think it would be something used by all ages.” The event will take place rain or shine at Fun Fun Park, 1472 128 St., April 28 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and will feature a bouncy castle, obstacle course, crafts, games and live entertainment. All who attend are encouraged to bring a picnic. For more information on the fundraiser for the park, visit facebook.com/ oceanparkcommunity or email funfunpark2013@gmail.com

Do you suffer with skin disease? Chinese medicine, as practiced in hospital settings around the world, can be a very effective and safe treatment for many skin ailments, Acne Psoriasis Eczema Rosacea & other skin issues

Exclusively focused on your skin.

Alternative medicine offers an interesting option for taking care of our health, and it can be complimentary to conventional medicine. Considered mainly as a preventative health-care strategy, alternative medicine includes many different approaches based on historical and cultural traditions around the world. You’ve surely heard of massage therapy, reiki, acupuncture, homeopathy or Chinese medicine. These treatments, along with many others, fall into the realm of alternative medicine. Many people believe these methods of caring for our bodies allow us to avoid health problems, largely because of the client-practitioner relationship. Practitioners often spend much longer in consultation with a patient, and counsel on lifestyle changes that help reduce stress and anxiety, which are known to contribute to chronic illness. The approach taken by alternative-medicine practitioners work to get us more in touch with our own bodies. We learn how to eat better, sleep better, eliminate toxins and take care of ourselves. There are a multitude of alternative medicines, each with their own way of responding to an essential need within the body. A quick phone call to a practitioner will help you discover the benefits of that approach.

Eating healthy starts at the supermarket. Filling your grocery cart with nutritional foods is easy, when you know what to choose. Before you go grocery shopping, make a list of all the food items you need. Don’t go shopping on an empty stomach – you’re bound to be tempted by items of dubious nutritional value. Once at the supermarket, try to focus on the fresh produce department. Fresh fruits and vegetables provide many of the necessary elements for good health. Choose whole-grain products. Whole grains that are found in breads, cereals, brown rice, quinoa, breakfast rusks and natural popcorn are good sources of fibre. Choose food items whose ingredient lists starts with whole wheat flour, whole grain barley, whole grain rye, etc. For dairy products and alternatives, choose skim milk or low-fat milk with a 1 or 2 per

cent fat content. Whole milk (3.25 per cent) is recommended for young children. Choose yogurts and cheeses with a minimum fat content as well. Milk can also be replaced by enriched soy beverages, ideally unsweetened ones. When shopping for meat and alternatives, choose the leanest cuts. Even better is to limit your consumption of red meat, replacing it with two portions of fish per week and with white meats such as chicken and turkey. Try tofu, a vegetable protein with no cholesterol and an ability to take on the flavour of whatever sauce it’s cooked in. A healthy grocery basket will also contain proteins such as beans and lentils. If you’re hesitating between two products, check the information in the nutrition facts table. Choose the item that contains the least amount of sodium, sugar and trans fat.

WHAT IS THE VALUE OF VISION

Our precious eyesight is often overworked in this age of computers and televisions, whose screens we often squint at for hours in poor light without any breaks. Eye examinations with eyecare professionals at regular intervals are essential in order to correct computer-related eye strain and other vision problems. Optometrists examine and evaluate the overall health of the eyes, taking into account any of the patient’s medical history that might influence his or her eye health. They then measure all of the physical aspects of the patient’s eye using instruments and standardized tests, taking steps to correct the failing sight with optical aids, such as glasses or contact lenses. They also detect diseases and other deformations that can lead to more serious consequences. In the case of a pathology, such as glaucoma or a functional problem, the optometrist will refer the patient to the appropriate health-care professional. It is recommended that people of all ages have vision checkups on a regular basis. Young children might not even notice a deterioration of their sight if it takes place over a long period of time.

Why is so much emphasis placed on tooth-brushing and flossing? Because oral health is directly linked to our general health and well-being. Dental disease can take a heavy toll, both financially and socially. Dental health involves all aspects of health and functioning of the mouth. In addition to allowing us to talk and eat, our mouths must also fight against infections that cause tooth decay, inflammation of the gums, tooth loss and bad breath. So how can you ensure good oral health for you and your familiy? The first step is to make sure that very young children do not get in the habit of having a bottle of milk, fruit juice or a sweet drink before going to bed. These sugary drinks can stay coated on the teeth for long periods of time and can lead to tooth decay. Brush your teeth at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and, if possible, floss them once a day. You should also visit your dentist once every six months for a cleaning and check-up. Oral health professionals have an important part to play in maintaining dental health as well as treating and preventing associated problems. Schools also have a role in raising children’s awareness of the importance of a healthy diet and good oral hygene. Take care of your teeth and dazzle the world with your beautiful smile.

How do you re-energize yourself while burning off some calories? The answer is simple: get moving! Playing a sport is a sure way of staying in shape, as it will burn fat reserves, increase the body’s metabolic rate and help to keep your body trim. Regular exercise also helps to regulate appetite and contributes to general good health. But if you’re not a fan of sports, there are many other activities that, at first glance, seem insignificant, but can make a big difference to your physical well-being. These include playing actively with your children, gardening, dancing and even shopping. Not to mention the unavoidable task of housework. Boring? Not if you turn it into an intense workout. By using your entire body, housecleaning activities can burn as many calories as going for a walk – as long as you put your heart into it. If you find yourself having a hard time staying motivated to do something physical each day, try pairing up with a buddy who can help encourage you to keep working. Lastly, to use your time efficiently, try to be active on a regular basis. By combining several different activities, you can help to develop different muscles in your body. Perhaps most important is to find activities that you enjoy. Whether it’s hiking with your family, swimming lengths at your local pool or dancing up a storm in your living room, having fun is an important aspect of getting fit. You’re far less likely to embrace a fitness regime if you find it boring or repetitive.

Just as nature springs back to life after the long winter months, rejuvenate your skin after all the cold weather and start the summer with radiant beauty. Start your pre-summer treatment with a good exfoliant. By helping to eliminate the layer of dead skin that accumulates on your epidermis, giving it a dull, pallid appearance, exfoliants will uncover a new layer of fresh, rejuvenated skin. The new skin revealed by your exfoliant should, however, be well protected from dryness or irritation with the application of a good moisturizing cream. Protection from harmful UV rays is recommended throughout the year, but it is especially important to protect yourself in the spring and summer months. The application of a good-quality sunscreen is therefore essential when the warmer weather returns. As sandal season approaches, it’s time to give your feed some tenderloving care in preparation for slipping them into your favourite pair of open-toed shoes. With the help of a pumice stone, you can eliminate corns and dead skin from your feet. Then moisturize them, spoil them and – as a finishing touch – apply a coat of varnish to your toenails in celebration of their return to the summer sun.

Healthy. Comfortable. Beautiful.

Many women are on an eternal quest to enhance their appearance, spending thousands of dollars each year on cosmetics and other beauty products. While the use of highquality products can help to a certain extent, there are plenty of other simple ways to give yourself a natural beauty boost. • Confidence: A woman who exudes confidence and security about how she looks may come off as more attractive. Walking with your head held high into a room can certainly have all eyes pointing in your direction for the right reasons. • Good posture: Standing up straight can improve your health and your appearance. Simply standing tall can elongate the body, make it appear slender and help portray a younger appearance. • Healthy hair: Hair sends a message to others about how much you care about your appearance, as it is one of the most visible aspects of your appearance. Dry, unmanageable hair may be the result of inadequate scalp stimulation. In such instance, the oils of the scalp need to be spread to the hair shaft to improve hair’s appearance and health. • Lifestyle: Smoking not only affects your internal organs and increases your cancer risk, but it’s also affects your appearance. Smoking can discolor the skin and the hands. The blood vessels in the eyes can be compromised by a lack of oxygen due to smoking, and the chemicals in the smoke can lead to inflammation and irritation of the eyes. Smoking also seems to age the skin more quickly, further enhancing the appearance of wrinkles.

Scorpio, things beyond your control may be contributing to sour feelings this week. Look at the bright side of any situation and you can probably find a solution that works.

You may find that one of your coworkers is more critical of your work than usual, Gemini. Don't take it the wrong way, as constructive criticism can be a good thing.

Sagittarius, you are seldom soft spoken, but this week you may have to be even more assertive to get your point across. Otherwise your opinions might fall on deaf ears.

CANCER

CAPRICORN

Cancer, things have calmed down considerably in your life. This week presents a good opportunity to take a trip that is geared entirely around your interests.

Try to get outside as much as possible this week, Capricorn. The fresh air and sunshine can do wonders for your mood. Plus, you can get in some exercise.

AQUARIUS

LEO

Do not follow the examples of others when they act irrationally to a certain situation, Aquarius. Although it can be difficult, you need to take the high road.

Leo, remain modest about your personal and professional accomplishments this week. Now is not the time to show off. Be humble in your conversations.

PISCES

VIRGO

Take a chance and express all of your goals and hopes this week, Pisces. Others may be surprised at what you have to say.

Virgo, as inviting as a situation may look, appearances can be deceiving. You may want to dip your toe into the water before you dive right into something.

Earth Month…Act for the planet! FortisBC supports the environment in both operations and services offered Saving energy starts here By Tom Loski Earth Day is celebrated annually April 22 with events held across the g lobe to demonstrate support for protecting the environment. FortisBC recognizes that sound environmental practices make good business sense and that’s why the company is committed to delivering safe, reliable energy in an environmentally responsible way to all of the communities we serve. We look for ways to support the environment in our operations and with services that we provide to our customers. One simple way customers can help the environment is to consider our paperless billing option, a fast and simple way to save paper and ultimately our forests. When customers go paperless, their bill is delivered directly to their email address as a PDF file attached to the email. The eBill service is a fast, easy and environmentally friendly way for

customers to access both their electricity and natural gas bill. Another simple way customers can look at reducing their carbon footprint is through rebates and financial incentives offered as part of our PowerSense and Energy Efficiency and Conservation programs. . Through FortisBC’s PowerSense programs, electricity customers sa ved an estimated 32 million kilowatt hours of electricity in 2012. The PowerSense programs helps customers conserve energy and get the most out of their energy dollar by providing both financial incentives and advice on energy efficient technologies and practices. In 2012, FortisBC’s natural gas Energy Efficiency and Conservation programs helped residential, commercial and industrial customers save more than 360,000 gigajoules of natural gas, enough energy to heat some 4,100 homes in one year.

Renewable natural gas is a B.C.-made, carbon neutral energy source. The methane gas used to produce renewable natural gas comes from organic waste found at local landfills and farms. Instead of escaping into the atmosphere as a harmful greenhouse gas, it’s captured, cleaned and added to our pipeline, giving our customers a renewable energy source. For about $5 more per month on their natural gas bill, customers can designate 10 per cent of their natural gas use as renewable. We’ll then inject an equivalent amount into our system. To date, more than 60 businesses and close to 3,800 residential customers have signed up to be part of the renewable natural gas program. Helping customers conserve energy is one of the most cost effective ways for us to meet future needs. And by making thoughtful energy choices — whether it’s switching to paperless billing, installing energy efficient lighting or upgrading to a high-efficiency natural gas furnace — you’re supporting the environment. Tom Loski is the vice president of customer service at FortisBC.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Surrey wins Fred Page Cup after double-overtime heroics

Tambellini goal wins it for Eagles Nick Greenizan

F

Sports Reporter

or the fourth time in franchise history – and first time since 2005 – the Surrey Eagles are kings of the BC Hockey League. The Eagles won the Fred Page Cup Sunday night at Penticton’s South Okanagan Events Centre, when Adam Tambellini’s one-timer in double-overtime beat Vees’ goalie Chad Katunar, who up until that point of extra time had been nearly unbeatable. The goal gave Surrey a 3-2 victory, and a 4-2 series win, dethroning the Vees, who were the defending league champions. “It feels great,” said Surrey head coach Matt Erhart, who won a Fred Page Cup as a player with the Eagles in 1998. “To get it as a coach is almost more satisfying. It’s a little more work when you’re a coach – when you’re a player, you just show up and play, but we have a great bunch of guys who want to work hard… it makes it easy as a coach.” But Surrey’s ascension to the top of the mountain was not without a few missteps Sunday – namely, two blown leads in the last 10 minutes of the third period. But the Birds are nothing if not resilient – a quality Erhart has trumpeted throughout the postseason. In the third period, with the Eagles protecting a 1-0 lead, Penticton finally got on the board at the 12-minute mark when John Seimer, streaking down the left wing, took the puck below the Surrey goal line and threw it into the high slot, where Louie Nanne found it and wired a wrist shot past Eagles’ goaltender Michael Santaguida. The deadlock didn’t last long, however. Just over three minutes after Nanne’s tying goal, Eagles forward Brady Shaw – a former Vee – restored the visiting team’s lead on the power play when he chipped the puck past Katunar. Surrey had a chance to add an insurance goal late in the period

the game, Surrey blew its second lead when Penticton’s Michael Rebry tipped a point shot past Santaguida to send the game to overtime. “When we took that penalty, I kind of had a bad feeling, knowing the way the Vees are… knowing the amount of firepower they have,” said Erhart.

“But the first 10 minutes of overtime I thought we dominated, and the last 10 we somehow found a way to hold on, and get the goal in double overtime.” Tambellini put the series to bed 2:34 into the second overtime period when he one-timed a pass from Demico Hannoun past Katunar.

“I don’t really know what happened,” said Shaw. “Me, Tambellini and Hannoun were down low, cycling the puck, and then I think Hannoun threw it out in front. One of the Vees’ players missed it and it went right to Tambellini. “He’s got a pretty nice shot and didn’t make a mistake. Everything else is kind of a blur.” The championship held extra meaning for Shaw, who was released by the Vees two games into the 2011/12 season, before hooking up with the Coquitlam Express. “Getting ❝He’s got a released by them, I thought pretty nice it was the worst shot and thing in the didn’t make world when a mistake. it happened,” Everything Shaw explained. else is kind of “But I moved on and found a a blur.❞ new home here Brady Shaw in Surrey. I’m Surrey Eagles happy to be here and happy to be a champion.” Surrey’s other goal in the game came early, off the stick of captain Brett Mulcahy. Mulcahy notched his second of the playoffs 1:55 into the game when he knocked in a rebound from a Michael Stenerson shot. The Eagles had a chance to make it a two-goal lead when Nic Pierog – whose nine playoff goals matched his regular-season output – rang a shot off the post, and Kevan Killistoff, the overtime hero Thursday in Game 5, knocked the rebound off the iron, as well. In Game 5 at South Surrey Arena, Killistoff, a Langley native, scored the winning goal 5:44 into the extra period when, standing at the side of the goal, a point shot from Craig Wyszomirski missed the net and bounced off the end boards to the rookie forward, who banged the rebound home. “Killy was in the right spot at the right time, and he put it home,” said linemate Trevor Cameron, › see page 34

The horse – “Dono” as he’s called by Pavicic – is only in his second year competing in dressage events. “Our success is due in part to a strong relationship with our personal coach, Dirk Glitz, whom I’ve worked with for several years,” said Pavicic, who has represented Canada at equestrian competitions for two decades, including the 2007 Pan-American Games, where she won silver.

Cameron was instrumental in getting the game into overtime, scoring the team’s first goal 5:32 into the third period when he pounced on a loose puck before Katunar could get to it and slid it into the empty net on a wraparound. “I just… beat my check to the net. I picked it up and knocked it away from Katunar a bit. I realized I had no one on me, had the open net, and put it home,” he said.
