Skateboard deterrent ‘sends wrong message,’ warns councillor

Rumble strips grind on some residents Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Inverted rumble strips scraped into White Rock’s Everall Street this week are getting mixed reaction from residents of the roadway and skateboarders who routinely ride the winding hill. Kyle Smith said he and other boarders were warned a month ago that the grooves – six sets of three, foot-wide tracks – would be

going in as part of an effort to curb the activity. But, as he advised council at their April 29 meeting, they won’t deter enthusiasts. “They’re very ineffective,” Smith said Tuesday, after learning the grooves had been cut that day. “It’s not going to stop us.” Hardie Avenue resident Ria Burgert contacted Peace Arch News about the work that morning after returning from a walk to the beach to find the route home thick with dust.

Burgert called the grooves “ridiculous” and said the city is wasting money on a problem that doesn’t exist. “They are neat people, good boys,” she said of skateboarders who frequent the hilly stretch. “The skateboarders are not a problem. “It’s always against youth in White Rock.” Mayor Wayne Baldwin confirmed at the April 29 meeting that the grooves are aimed at deterring longboarders and skateboarders

from using the road. Under the city’s current Street and Traffic Bylaw, the activity is illegal within an area bounded by Oxford Street to the west, North Bluff Road to the north, Best Street to the east and Buena Vista Avenue to the south. Coun. Larry Robinson is leading a push to see the bylaw changed, and Smith said he plans to bring a delegation in support of such changes to city council this month. › see page 4

t’s an overcast day over Boundary Bay, but for Trevor Skillen, any day without rain is good for flying. His Second World War-era Boeing Stearman biplane has an open canopy, exposing him to the elements. “You’re going so fast, the windshield blows it right over top of you,” he says. “The real problem with the rain is the visibility.” That won’t be a problem on this day. Mount Baker looms in the distance as Skillen pilots his

A few hundred feet above White Rock beach, he pitches the plane upwards before curling off and hurtling back towards the ground. “A wingover,” he says, his voice crackling over the radio headset. He points the plane skyward again, and then, like a roller-coaster reaching its apex, the plane evens out momentarily before plummeting towards the ocean below. Skillen pulls back on the stick once more, and the plane climbs and climbs, until finally it again submits to gravity.

The search for a White Rock man reported missing in October has come to a sad conclusion. The remains of David Anthony Klammer, 39, were found by two campers Sunday afternoon on the west side of Arrow Lake, police and BC Coroners Service announced Tuesday evening. David Klammer His death is not considered suspicious; an autopsy scheduled for today (Thursday) is hoped to clarify exactly how he died. Klammer’s family reported him missing on Oct. 21, 13 days after he left his parents’ home in Saskatchewan. He was headed to White Rock, but never arrived. The window salesman’s backpack was found on a logging road on Oct. 26; his 2003 Subaru Impreza was located on Nov. 5. Extensive searches were conducted, both on the ground and by helicopter, as recently as this spring. Klammer’s parents last month appealed for the public to be on the lookout for their son. Klammer’s remains were located 60 kilometres south of Revelstoke, about 40 kilometres downstream from where his car was found.

an independent MLA, and independents are in the ascendancy right now, as a result of two other incumbents running as independents. One was elected as a Liberal, and the other was elected as an NDP. High-profile independents are also running in several other ridings. Another factor is an increasing dissatisfaction with the tight control that parties exercise over sitting MLAs. Huntington is facing two challengers, BC Liberal Bruce McDonald and NDP Nic Slater. The race is likely to be between Huntington and McDonald, who served for many years on Delta council. McDonald will do well, but Huntington has the edge as an incumbent and as an independent. So if the NDP wins the two swing seats in Surrey, they will have seven of the 10 local seats. They need to win such seats to pick up a majority. If the Liberals win one or both seats, they may hold on to power, or will most likely form a strong opposition. And if Huntington and several other independents are elected, and the Liberal and NDP seat count is close, there is a slim chance that there will be a minority government. There hasn’t been one in B.C. since 1952, when Social Credit was first elected. Such a scenario would make B.C. politics more interesting than ever.

All-candidates meetings held in White Rock, Cloverdale and Panorama

White Rock hears views from three-fifths Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

One of five candidates taking a run at the Surrey-White Rock MLA’s seat says he wasn’t given the opportunity to share his stance on topics of concern to the riding’s constituents. But while Jim Laurence said he was not invited to an all-candidates meeting hosted by the South Surrey and White Rock Chamber of Commerce at Star of the Sea Hall Friday, organizers say it was not for lack of trying. “We phoned. Nobody answered,” chamber executive director Cliff Annable said Tuesday. “Every candidate that was a registered candidate… was invited. I personally contacted every candidate. He was not left out on purpose. There was attempts made to get ahold of him and invite him.” Laurence, a South Surrey resident, is run-

ning for the BC Party, vying for the MLA’s seat against Liberal incumbent Gordon Hogg, the BC NDP’s Susan Keeping, the Green party’s Don Pitcairn and Conservative Elizabeth Pagtakhan.

Only Hogg, Keeping and Pitcairn attended Friday’s meeting. Pagtakhan sent regrets; Laurence’s name was not mentioned. Meeting facilitator Gary Hollick, pastpresident of the chamber, said he didn’t see Laurence’s name on paperwork prior to the meeting. He described it as “strange” that a candidate would be left out, but noted “we’ve seen that in the past. A lot of times they just invite the three main parties.” About 200 people filled seats at the community hall Friday to hear from MLA hopefuls. Questions posed to the trio addressed issues ranging from gang violence and affordable housing to the recent decision in Washington State to legalize the possession of small amounts of marijuana. Keeping and Pitcairn had similar takes on the marijuana issue, with both supporting

decriminalization. Hogg noted the issue is a federal one, but said he supported continued access to low-cost medicinal cannabis. Keeping – noting Premier Christy Clark has “fully avoided the question altogether” – said the BC NDP are “fully in favour” of the move; Pitcairn said B.C. “should have been the leader in this,” and pointed to the benefits that could be reaped from taxation. When asked about practical measures to reduce gang violence in the community, Hogg pointed to drugs as a driving factor behind the problem – which hit home for residents of the Semiahmoo Peninsula last month, with the shooting death of 28-yearold Craig Widdifield in South Surrey – and said a national approach is needed to tackle the issue. › see page 4

Hopefuls in Cloverdale Jennifer Lang Black Press

B.C.’s provincial election touched down in Cloverdale Monday night, when candidates for two ridings took part in a forum organized by the Surrey Library Board. Pipelines, B.C.’s carbon tax, the environment, transit, post-secondary education and the economy were just a sampling of the issues on voters’ minds at the forum. In front of a standing-room-only crowd, five candidates representing Surrey-Cloverdale and SurreyWhite Rock answered questions. Candidates were asked what they would do to make post-secondary education more affordable. BC Conservative Howard Wu, a technology entrepreneur running in Surrey-Cloverdale, said he values skills learned inside and outside of a traditional post-secondary setting. Stephanie Cadieux (current MLA for Surrey-Panorama who’s running in Surrey-Cloverdale) pointed to her BC Liberal party’s record over 12 years, which has seen the addition of 32,000 post-secondary seats and seven universities. When asked what they would do to improve recreational opportunities in Surrey, several candidates pointed out that rec centres and community programming fall under municipal jurisdiction, although Cadieux said she’s already spoken with Surrey’s mayor and council to see what the province can do to target investment here. “I think we have a unique situation in Cloverdale right now,” Cadieux said, referring to rapid residential growth in Clayton. NDP candidate Harry Kooner, who works for the City of Surrey, added he thinks the province has to provide better funding to cities. Green Party candidate for SurreyWhite Rock Don Pitcairn earned a few laughs when the questions turned to environmental protection. “As you all know, the BC Green party is really getting into green issues these days. I hope that’s not a news flash,” he said. › see page 3

Students at Sullivan Heights Secondary press election hopefuls on what they would do to improve education in the British Columbia.

Candidates schooled in Panorama Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Four candidates vying for a seat in the B.C. legislature faced about 500 students at Sullivan Heights Secondary last week. The Surrey-Panorama hopefuls are all running for MLA in the May 14 election. A show of hands indicated about 100 of the students were old enough to vote. Not surprisingly, the main topic of discussion was education. “We love our students,” said BC Green party candidate Sara Sharma. “They are our futures.” She said the province needs more schools and more teachers. BC New Democrat Amrik Mahil said he saw before him the province’s future managers, CEOs, and politicians. He noted that by 2020, 80 per cent of jobs in the province will require skills training or post-secondary education. “We must live within our means and expand our skills training and our post-secondary schools,” Mahil said, adding the NDP would subsidize post-secondary students by $1,500 a year. BC Conservative Kevin Rakhra said he, at 28 years old, can closely relate to the students.

“I look before me and see myself 10 years ago,” Rakhra said. “I want to make sure you have every chance I did and more.” Marvin Hunt, who is running for the BC Liberals, said he has enjoyed 24 years serving the citizens of Surrey as a city councillor. He said many people ask him why he’d leave a job as city councillor. “I lived through the 1990s,” Hunt said, referring to the last NDP reign in B.C. “We saw jobs leave the province.” He also said municipalities were left in the lurch when $11 million in annual grants were taken away from cities, while the province downloaded responsibility for transportation infrastructure, including Fraser Highway, Scott Road and the Pattullo Bridge. “The worst roads are what we were given,” Hunt said. One student wanted to know how new schools being promised were going to be paid for. Rakhra said the first issue is to find out how the current tax revenue is going to be used. For that, he said the Conservatives have promised to create an independent budget officer. Maureen, a Grade 11 student, asked what kind of priorities the candidates would be putting on

education and how that would be funded. Mahil said the NDP would be placing a threeper-cent surcharge on banks. “We are very concerned about Surrey,” said Mahil. Sharma said one-third of the province’s population is youth and the province needs to keep up with the growing demand on schools. The Green party, she said, plans to pay for that by using part of the carbon tax that currently goes to corporations. Grade 11 student Fin asked Mahil where the party was going to get the $1,500 he was promising for post-secondary education. Mahil said that was coming from a tax on banks. Rakhra later asked the group if anyone had a bank card, and if they ever paid fees. He argued those fees would go up under the NDP plan. Hunt said the best way to make education affordable is to have taxpayers keep their money. About a dozen students were asked at the end of the meeting who won the debate. Half of them said they didn’t know, the other half said it was BC Conservative Rakhra. Even Hunt said Rakhra appeared more popular with the students; “The applause-o-meter definitely went Conservative,” Hunt said.

Public forum held in White Rock › from page 3 Keeping called for education and teacher support; Pitcairn said those involved need to be targeted. “We need to… get control of this situation,” he said. Regarding affordable housing, Pitcairn said it is “a made-in-B.C. phenomenon.” The BC Greens would devote one per cent of the province’s annual budget to housing for low-income seniors, he said, and make changes to the Residential Tenancy Act. Keeping said the BC NDP has

a plan to create 1,500 affordable housing units every year. Hogg noted the BC Liberals have spent $3.2 billion over the past decade to create housing for low-income individuals. Hogg received a round of applause when he voiced support for the City of Surrey’s January decision to reject a proposal for a casino in South Surrey. Keeping was similarly praised for a promise to create tax credits that would encourage the film industry to return to B.C. “Our film industry was thriving

and, under the BC Liberals, it is no more,” she said. Her comments followed Hogg’s statement that in the current economic climate, the BC Liberals “can’t go a whole lot further” in terms of subsidizing the industry. Pitcairn didn’t know his party’s stance on the issue but was applauded when he suggested an end to such subsidies Canadawide. “At some point in time, we have to say government has to back away from this and let business sort it out.”

Cloverdale hosts two-riding debate › from page 3 Wu said he opposes B.C.’s carbon tax – introduced by the BC Liberals. “Those sort of policies are used to control citizens’ behaviour,” he said, adding the BC Conservatives have promised to scrap it. “It’s an unjust tax.” Susan Keeping, NDP candidate for Surrey-White Rock, said the carbon tax is revenue-neutral, and agreed with Kooner, who suggested reinvesting it to pay for rapid transit. Cadieux said that because the

tax was kept revenue-neutral, “you are paying less in taxes today because of the carbon tax.” BC Liberals plan to freeze the tax for five years to let the rest of the world catch up in implementing a similar tax, she added. Candidates were asked what they feel is the most important quality an MLA should have to best represent the riding. “I serve you,” Pitcairn said. “I do not serve the BC Green party.” Wu said his openness and honesty would serve constituents well.

tant quality of an MLA is “listening and asking penetrating questions to get to the bottom of what a constituent is asking.” The candidates were also asked whether they support the legalization of marijuana. The NDP and Liberal candidates stuck to their party’s stances, that it’s a federal issue. Wu said it’s a moral issue. “I do not support the legalization of marijuana,” he said. “It’s not because I’m against more sales of Doritos. We’ve got enough ‘fun stuff ’ in society.”

‘Too busy, too steep’ for boarders › from page 1 The Everall stretch is “one of the biggest ones we ride,” Smith said. Robinson said he knew nothing of the grooves until contacted by Peace Arch News.

If not, “we can always fill them in.” He anticipates they will also slow drivers. Everall Street resident Lynn Baksh described the work as a reasonable approach. The road is too busy and too steep for boarding, “and the cost of head injuries is too much,” she said. “I don’t mind this because it’s going to slow them down.” A letter advising of the change was to be delivered to area residents earlier this week.

Bustin’ bruin attracted to compost bin in South Surrey

Bear visit a ‘big surprise’ her green bin out front – something she doesn’t normally do. The bear knocked it over and was checking out what it had to offer when Harms turned on her dining-room light. Startled, the animal quickly left, “heading towards White Rock.” Harms said when she reported the sighting, a conservation officer advised her not to put out any bird feeders and that the bear would likely be back. “Everybody has their big green bins out, but a bird feeder’s going to be the problem?” she said.

Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A South Surrey woman is warning residents to tuck away their compost bins, after she woke to a bear rummaging through hers. Sylvia Harms said she was investigating noise coming from her front yard around 3:30 a.m. last Saturday when she spotted the uninvited guest through her dining room window. It was a “big surprise,” she said. Harms, who lives in the 16900block of 19 Avenue, said she was gardening the day before and left

Harms is confident the green bins, which now also contain food scraps, will be a bigger draw. “Everybody needs to put their compost away.” Conservation officer Dave Cox told Peace Arch News Wednesday that only one bear-sighting report has been logged from the South Surrey area. Cox described such sightings as “uncommon.” He encouraged anyone who spots one of the animals to call the wildlife reporting hotline, at 1-877-952-7277.

The annual recalculation of the so-called “living wage” found the hourly rate necessary to cover rent, child care, food and transportation (after government taxes and levies) jumped 48 cents from $19.14 last year – that’s the equivalent of 2.5 per cent, or nearly double the rate of inflation. We all know that housing costs are to blame for some of this burden but the CCPA study found that rising child-care costs, food prices and a four-per-cent jump in Medical Services Plan premiums were also to blame. The problem is, many working parents don’t even make that “living wage” and are getting by on the minimum wage of $10.25. How are families coping? This is difficult to ascertain but recent studies have found that there are increasing numbers of families in “core need,” meaning that their housing costs are so high and their incomes so low that they are at constant risk of homelessness. More people are also using the food bank, according to Share Family and Community Services, and school districts throughout the Lower Mainland – including Surrey’s District 36 – are seeing increasing numbers of vulnerable children; many, if not all, are working with partners to provide breakfast and after-school programs plus other supports. Other families, whose wages are more in keeping with the limit suggested by CCPA, are making some difficult choices to stretch their dollars. They have given up on the idea of a second car, for example, or the dream of being an at-home parent, and are turning to creative housing choices. For example, more families are living in condominiums and basement suites than in previous years, and those who can afford to own a single-family home are often renting out the basement in order to makes ends meet. Meanwhile, per capita debt, although stabilizing, is still high, suggesting that the Canadian dream, while not dead, is increasingly expensive to maintain.

Just in case anyone has a cavalier attitude about parenthood, and how one gets in that condition, this may be helpful in setting them on a path of enlightenment. (I’m proud to say my teen is highly enlightened, but reinforcement never hurts.) And if that means she has to get up every couple of hours, and tote around a crying plastic baby, well, good. It was actually a well-behaved little thing for most of the evening. So much so, I had forgotten about it, and was sleepily watching something on TV, when I was startled to hear the sound of a baby crying. My teen was standing beside the couch, holding something out to me. “Dad, do you mind taking the baby?” Good thing I was lying down, because I think I passed out.

Peace Arch News

Get on board, White Rock Editor: Re: Priorities skate over real issues, April 30 letters. After reading Stuart Mitchell’s letter regarding the recent crackdown on longboarding by the RCMP and City of White Rock bylaw officers, I have reached a new level of anger on this issue. We moved to White Rock two years ago but have lived in the general area for many years. I knew White Rock liked to have a “small beach town” image, but I had no idea it was so incredibly small-minded. The treatment of youth and children in this city, by this city, is appalling. We offer few recreational activities – the most recent leisure guide published by the city had 80 per cent of its content dedicated to adults and seniors. I guess we know where kids rank in the City of White Rock. Maybe the city is saying: “Hey, kid, just go to the beach – but don’t you dare bring your dog!” Skateboarding is a healthy outdoor activity for kids to participate in; kids have been doing so since the 1960s. Where is this the impetus for this recent crackdown coming from? Who has bent the ear of the city? Is this really what our RCMP should be spending their time on? If the current bylaw clearly shows on a map an area where skateboarding is specifically banned, then one would conclude that the area outside this zone is permissible. I would love to see someone fight this in court – the reasonable doubt is wide enough for a freighter. And by the way, City of White Rock, not all longboarders are young kids that you can intimidate – some are 44 and own homes here, pay taxes here and pay the wages of RCMP officers, bylaw officers, mayors, councillors and city staff. Start serving all the people of White Rock, not just the noisy, busybody ones that get your ear. Michael J. Klaver, White Rock n Re: Boarders appeal bylaw, May 2. I see that Larry Robinson, a White Rock councillor, is not receiving support regarding skateboarding bylaw from a certain segment from the population, i.e., anyone who is over a ‘certain age’ and obviously not skateboarders themselves. Well, I am writing to tell you that I am in that ‘older’ age bracket and I fully support these kids. I think they are wonderful and should be

encouraged to practise their sport, with all the appropriate caveats – due care, safety, etc. I see them line up on Buena Vista at the top of Dolphin, getting ready to start their descent down Cliff, and I admire their courage and elegance. I wish I could join them. Having seeing these talented young people for a while, I am surprised White Rock doesn’t do something to celebrate this activity, something similar to the cycling race, Tour de White Rock. Maybe a skateboarding race? That should really get the seniors all worked up! Funny how some older people dump on everything that young people do, having forgotten all the things they got up to in their youth. Well, even though I am retired

now, I haven’t forgotten what it was like to be young, and I know that these young people are good kids. Let’s support these kids to do what they love in a smart, safe way. Hannah Newman, White Rock

Animals rely on all of us Editor: We are a group of Grade 7 boys from Southridge School looking to make a difference in our community. We are trying to raise awareness about a new hotline that has been launched by the BC SPCA to report animal abuse and neglect.

Currently, SPCA shelters receive nearly 6,000 reports of animal cruelty annually. Now, thanks to donors, the SPCA has launched a province-wide hotline devoted to receiving calls regarding animal abuse. This new call centre will be able to dispatch emergency services and special constables across B.C. This designated toll-free hotline will allow the shelters’ staff to devote more time to the animals’ care and adoption services. The animals in our community rely on all of us to keep them safe. We urge everyone to make note of this new hotline – 1-855-622-7722 – so we can all do our part and keep our animals safe from cruelty and abuse. Jack Bowie, Joshua Block & Kale Fehr, Surrey

An overflow crowd at an April 29 public hearing comprised opponents and supporters of a Vidal Street proposal.

A poor way to plan our future Editor: Re: Project foes, supporters out in force, May 2. What is the actual benefit of the proposed Vidal Street project, if any, to current residents or taxpayers? There is no reason to believe a change of OCP and zoning bylaws to accommodate 12 townhouse units and 97 apartments in this area would contribute to the wellbeing of the community and its new members. Most likely, it would lower the quality of life – more traffic congestion, more noise and air pollution, less green and open space, loss of wildlife habitat and views. Lowering our quality of life is sad enough, but it also increases taxes. To base growth on the ability to milk new residents for tax revenue is a sophism, since additional taxes are needed to pay for services that the new residents would require. We are outraged to see some residents who gained political influence by strongly opposing building up in the town centre five years ago now use said influence to support urban growth beyond limits and destruction of mature trees for personal benefit. Thomas Gessell & Genevieve Loslier, White Rock n The public hearing for a proposed 12-storey building at upper Vidal Street demonstrated the process for approving projects, certainly in this instance, is flawed.

The cart is being put before the horse. A 12-storey building at the intended location outside the Town Centre is a significant departure from the principles outlined in the official community plan. This project requires a maximum shift in density; low to high. Spot zoning to accommodate such a structure would establish a threatening precedent for the OCP’s Development Permit Area 3, which includes upper Vidal Street, and indeed for all White Rock. Instead of council amending bylaws to accommodate a proposed building, the OCP should first be updated to reflect the changed social, physical and economic environment of White Rock. Subsequent development proposals consistent with the revised OCP would not be overly controversial. For the long term, the city’s time and energy would be better spent on an OCP update, which was last done five years ago, rather than introducing bylaws and attending public hearings to accommodate specific projects. The official community plan is not cast in stone and its content is not legally binding. However, surely there is a moral obligation for council to adhere to the OCP’s guidelines rather than consider bylaw changes to accommodate a project that may not be in the best interest of White Rock and its residents.

election 2013

Change not victory

BC CONSERVATIVES Peace Arch News published candidates’ answers to a questionnaire May 7, noting we did not receive a response from Surrey-White Rock BC Conservative candidate Elizabeth Pagtakhan. Pagtakhan’s email – received Wednesday – indicates she replied by our deadline but it was somehow misdirected. Here are her responses:

2. What are the most significant issues facing your riding? Like most British Columbians, SurreyWhite Rock constituents are concerned about unfair taxes, economy, and transparency. Unfair and high taxes are hurting British Columbians especially the seniors. We will eliminate carbon tax, double the age amount tax credit for low-income seniors, and ensure that every tax dollar spent is accounted for. 3. What are the most significant issues facing B.C.? It is evident that the most significant issues facing B.C. are rising debt, accountability, and the economy. BC Conservatives are committed in creating high-paying jobs by eliminating red tape and regulations which limit investment and opportunity. As a BC Conservative, I believe in balanced budgets and smarter spending. 4. Why should people vote for you? I am a hardworking person and will work very hard to represent the constituents of Surrey-White Rock.

crippling. It scares me that the NDP have rolled out billions in new spending during this campaign, and their “every dollar is accounted for” rhetoric just isn’t credible because their anti-development attitude will reduce revenue at the same time as spending rises. There is truth to the adage, “Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it”. The NDP came to power in 1991. Investment dried up and economic growth trailed the rest of Canada. Glen Clark’s 1996-’99 tenure was arguably the most disastrous for B.C. With Clark’s former chief of staff leading the province, I’d be worried about history repeating itself. It took years for the Liberals to repair the damage. During their time, North America suffered through a major recession and yet we now have a triple-A credit rating, allowing B.C. taxpayers the lowest possible interest rates. Have the Liberals done everything right? Certainly not. The introduction of the HST was badly handled. There have been other gaffes and ill-thought-out policies. And while there is a natural inclination for people to vote to change long-governing parties, it’s important not to let the NDP sleepwalk to victory without thinking about which party is likely to create jobs and not burden today’s young people with a mountain of debt. I’m not asking that you agree with me, only that you think through the full consequences of your choice carefully. And then get out and vote on May 14. Gwyn Morgan, Victoria

Editor: I’m concerned that many British Columbians are more focused on “change” for the sake of change, rather than electing the party most likely to foster job creation and financial stability. Our resource endowment has always been a mainstay of both jobs and the generation of revenues needed to fund social programs. From what I have seen and heard, an NDP government would rev-up spending while stymieing resource development through endless environmental reviews and/ or by just saying “no”, driving investment to other provinces and other countries. We need new mines and gas fields, pipelines, refineries, ports and processing plants to replace jobs lost by tech change and by events like the pine-beetle catastrophe. Economic development and the protection of the environment are not mutually exclusive. Yes, we must be good stewards of our province, but we have the technology to move the economy forward in an environmentally responsible manner. Saying no to new projects will mean job losses for currently employed and no opportunity for young people to join the work force. We need to focus on balancing the budget, rather than taking money away from social programs to fund rising interest costs. Forty years in business has taught me too much debt is

Trevor Skillen brings aviation back to its roots

Trevor Skillen, with his SecondWorld War-era Boeing Stearman biplane at the Delta Heritage Air Park.

A flight into the past › from page 1 Trevor Skillen isn’t your typical recreational pilot. But then, the Delta Heritage Air Park isn’t your typical airport. For more than 50 years, it has been home to some of the most impressive vintage aircraft in the Lower Mainland. “We’re a well-kept secret out here,” he says. The idyllic grass strip is just five miles east of Boundary Bay Airport, but it might as well be in the middle of nowhere. “There’s nothing like this in any major city in Canada,” says Skillen, who is also the chair of the Delta Heritage Airpark Operating Committee (DAPCOM). The air strip is uncontrolled, and is actually part of the Metro Vancouver Regional Parks system. The slow pace suits Skillen just fine. “You can come and go as you please,” he says. “You don’t have to talk to the tower, you don’t have to ask permission.” The airpark is a living aviation museum, home to dozens of classic aircraft. There is a Cold War-era Chinese trainer, Harvard trainers, a Pitts Special biplane, a handful of the legendary Piper Cub bush planes, Aeronca Champions, as well as the usual assortment of Cessnas, Cherokees, and Beechcrafts. In the golden age of aviation, all you needed was a grass strip to get off the ground, and the pilots here still like to keep things just that simple. Some choose to fly without GPS, instead relying on maps sewn into the inside of their jackets to chart their course. “You don’t even need a radio to

fly out of here,” says Skillen. Many of the hangars are converted old barns. While they’ve been renovated on the inside, Skillen says the airpark wants to keep them looking as old and rustic as possible, like patina on

vintage furniture. But the airpark isn’t a playground for the wealthy – far from it. The airpark’s low user fees have attracted aviation enthusiasts of all tax brackets, many of whom have built or restored their own aircraft.

It’s just $35 per month to park a plane on Delta Heritage Air Park’s grass apron, and little more than $200 to rent a hangar. “Less than what a parking spot would cost you downtown,” says Raymond Colley, the air park’s

former chair. “Ideally, we want to run it like a public golf course, and be accessible to everyone.” And just as every golf course has its clubhouse, the Delta Heritage Air Park has its coffee shop as its social hub. The walls of the shop are festooned with maps, yellowed photos of airplanes, and all manner of aviation memorabilia. Here the pilots can help themselves to hot coffee behind the counter, provided they drop some change into the cup. There’s always great conversation to be had, and the pilots love to talk shop. “Everyone here is here because they’re passionate about flying,” says Colley. “It’s not like other airports, where people are there to work. Everyone here is so enthusiastic.” Colley has been flying nearly his entire life, and spent much of his career captaining 747-400s across to Hong Kong and back for Cathay Pacific. After retiring close to 10 years ago, he rediscovered the joys of light aircraft, and fell in love with flying all over again. “It’s one extreme to the other,” he says of his airliner days. “Here, you’re a leaf in the air, compared to a Mack truck.” Flying at Delta Heritage Airpark is back-to-basics, he says. And that’s what’s so appealing about it to many pilots. “This is grassroots flying,” says Colley. “This is how it all started.” The land the airpark occupies at the end of 104 Street was once a farm owned by Darmel Embree, who fell in love with flying later in life after taking flight with a friend.

Annual event draws more than 100 participants to Blackie Spit Park

Hike for Hospice raises $20k Sarah Massah Staff Reporter

More than 100 Peninsula residents laced up their runners and braved the heat last Sunday for the annual Hike for Hospice. Hosted by the White Rock South Surrey Hospice Society at Blackie Spit Park, the May 5 fundraiser brought in $20,000 benefitting the numerous free programs and services offered to the community. Funds from this year’s hike will go towards bolstering programs for children who have suffered the loss of someone close to them, said society executive director Catherine Ferguson. “Kids in our community are going to school feeling isolated,” she said. “I think it’s really important work. Not only is there an immediate benefit, but the long-term benefit to the community of teaching them that grief and death is a normal part of life (leads to) strong adults and leaders in our community, and I believe it helps develop empathy.” Also high on the list is the society’s care centre, which Ferguson noted did not receive any funding from the province. She added that the society is in the process of putting together a plan to move forward with building a supportive care centre in the community.

Surrey students raise funds for cancer patients in India

Two worlds come together Evan Seal

Plenty of FREE Parking

Black Press

Members of the Panorama Ridge Secondary School Charity Club are hoping to make a difference halfway around the world. For more than two years, a volunteer organization known as Two Worlds Cancer Collaboration has been helping the extremely poor in India access pain management for cancer treatment and palliative care. For Zahara Lalani, a BC Cancer Agency nurse and Two Worlds volunteer, being an advocate for cancer patients in India needing end-of-life care has become a passion. “I had heard about big problems in other countries surrounding cancer care,” said Lalani. “And I was looking for a way to give back beyond our privileged society.” Located in the city of Hydrerbad in the State of Andhra Pradesh (population 84 million), the Two Worlds clinic is the only palliative care cancer clinic for those living below the poverty line, which is nearly 80 per cent of the population. Patients often walk for days to get to the clinic seeking help. The child cancer survival rate is 20 per cent in India compared to more than 80 per cent in North America.

Two Worlds volunteer Zahra Lalani (left) with Panorama students. In India, morphine and other pain controls are often inaccessible, due mostly to government regulations and fear of addiction. Volunteers with Two Worlds try to educate the doctors and nurses about pain relief and prescribing morphine. After a presentation to members of the charity club at Panorama Ridge Secondary by Lalani, the students began to take action. For Grade 8 student Nahall Fathi-Farimani, the thought of raising funds for such a worthy cause seemed very natural. “I liked the idea because my

aunt died of cancer, so it’s really important to me,” said FathiFarimani. “I thought, if I can help someone else with cancer even though they don’t know me, it’s important. My family is very proud and that makes me feel good.” Along with nearly $400 raised so far through a pizza sale and a basket raffle, the students exchanged personal artwork they had made with some of the patients in India.

FUTURE SHOP - Correction Notice

Coast Capital votes to rein in pay $1,000-per-meeting fees were added. The Surreyheadquartered credit union has also frozen a recommended increase in the base retainer of directors from $25,500 to $29,500. Some directors get more than $70,000 after meeting fees and committee chair fees are added. “We take to heart what our members have told us,” Coast Capital governance committee chair Glenn Wong said. “They have said they want to approve the amount of compensation directors receive.” A member panel will be struck to advise on potential changes to director compensation to take to a new vote. Wong said the changes already agreed

Metro’s ‘living wage’ rises to $19.62/hour

Coast Capital Savings members have wrested back control over how much money the credit union pays its board of directors. A nearly 80 per cent vote by members at an April 30 annual general meeting is expected to lead to a new membership vote in 2014 on changes to board pay levels. It follows a grassroots campaign led by Surrey resident Phil Embley, who argued the remuneration levels were far higher than at other credit unions in Canada. The board has agreed to cut chair Bill Wellburn’s retainer from $76,500 to $65,000. Last year he received $157,000 after

An annual recalculation of the so-called “living wage” for Metro Vancouver concludes two working parents must each now earn $19.62 an hour to adequately support a family of four. The calculation, published by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, estimates the wage including benefits required for a family of two full-time earners and two young

children to meet basic expenses, including rent, child care, food and transportation, once government taxes, credits, deductions and subsidies are taken into account. The living wage this year is up 48 cents from $19.14 in 2012 – a jump of 2.5 per cent or nearly double the rate of inflation. It has climbed from $16.74 in 2008, when the calculation was first made. – Jeff Nagel

Library fundraiser A South Surrey fundraiser brought in $500 to benefit an international program encouraging a love of reading in children. The Kiwanis Club of White Rock and South Surrey hosted the olive oil and balsamic tasting event at All of Oils in South Surrey on April 20, bringing in more than 20 people who sampled food catered by Sunshine Cafe. Funds raised from the event will sponsor seven children to enrol with the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, which provides one book a month for the child, up until the age of five. All of Oils donated 15 per cent of all sales to the library. The cost to sponsor a child is $65 a year. The program first came to Ocean Park in 2010, with Crescent Beach and White Rock later becoming involved. The next tasting benefiting the program will be held on May 18. For tickets, call Clifford Grant at 604-542-0170.

‘In memory’ awards never used White Rock council is to consider repealing a 3½-year-old policy that has never once been put to use. Council members meeting as the governance and legislation committee last week voted unanimously (with Coun. Louise Hutchinson absent) to recom-

mend Policy 206 – Naming of City of White Rock Awards ‘In Memory’ of Individual Citizens be put to rest. The suggestion was made by city clerk Tracey Arthur following a staff review of the policy, which was established in December 2009.

“From the time the policy has been adopted it has not been utilized,” Arthur notes in an April 29 report. City manager Dan Bottrill described the move as a “housekeeping” measure. Council is expected to consider the recommendation at the next regular meeting, set for May 13.

Annual event marked 25 years of fundraising for PAH

Gala raises more than $200,000 for hospital Sarah Massah

D

Staff Reporter

ozens of the Semiahmoo Peninsula’s movers and shakers helped raise more than $200,000 for Peace Arch Hospital’s emergency room at the annual Partners in Caring Gala last weekend. Organized by the Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation, 500 business, health-care and philanthropy leaders dined and danced at White Rock’s Centennial Arena May 4 for the annual black-tie event MCed by television personality Mark Madryga, netting $218,000, up from last year’s total of $165,000. The staggering amount was a testament to the support the hospital receives from the community, the foundation’s executive director said. “Every year, we have a difference need that we share with the members and guests. This year, we focused on the need to rebuild the ER,” Jackie Smith said. “We had members of the ER team in the room with us, and when they were introduced in their scrubs… guests gave them a standing ovation. “It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you have lots of community support behind you and a need the community realizes is important for all of us.” Presented by title sponsor National Bank Financial, the hospital’s primary fundraising event included a number of high-ticket auction items, including a cooking class and dinner for 12 with celebrity chef Vikram Vij at South Surrey cookware store Kitchen Therapy. The auction item proved to be popular, resulting in a bidding war between

Right, foundation executive director Jackie Smith speaks. three tables, with the winner shelling out $8,100 for the class. Another highlight, Smith noted, was the surprise last-minute donation of 16 tickets in a VIP box for the July 31 Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z concert, donated by BC Lions president Dennis Skulsky. “It was a great surprise. In fact, all the items at the silent auction, the live auction and in the mystery boxes were all donated from the community. It really speaks to what’s possible when a passionate group of people come together for something really important,”

Smith said. Funds raised will go towards a significant redevelopment project for the hospital, currently in its planning stages. The business case is set to be presented to government before the summer, and once approved, the project will be shared with the public, Smith noted. “It’s really, really exciting. The ER project is just one of the projects within that redevelopment plan,” she said. The night was also a major celebration for the Peace Arch Hospital and Community

Health Foundation, which marked 25 years of fundraising for the hospital at the gala. “We have to say thank you, to all who support our foundation throughout the year. We truly can’t make the investments we do and move health-care forward the way our foundation means to without the support,” Smith said. Since 1988, the foundation has raised more than $90 million for the hospital.

1. You’ve Googled “Mexico vacation,” and come up with 17.8 million responses. Need a little help editing those choices? 2. Remember when you used that obscure website to book your hotel, and when you got there you spent your beach vacation overlooking a parking lot? 3. How many hours were you on hold with the airline when your flight was canceled because of a snowstorm? 4. Did you really mean to spend your honeymoon at that resort whose one tiny pool was filled all day with 12 screaming children? 5. Who knew that when you booked that “villa” in Tuscany, it would be a small room with a kitchenette and no air conditioning? Funny, it looked much better on your computer screen. 6. No one explained to you that in July, it’s winter time in Rio, and so you showed up there with nothing but five Hawaiian shirts and three pairs of swimming trunks. 7. How about the time you really needed a restful vacation, and you ended up in New Orleans during Mardi Gras and someone threw up on your shoes? 8. Yes, I guess that hotel must have used a telephoto lens when they took a picture of those guest rooms that you saw on their website.

On this amazing scenic tour you discover the best of World Heritage sites, Waterton Lakes National Park and Glacier National Park. Take a boat cruise along the shores of Waterton Lake and view some of the most spectacular mountain scenery of the Rockies. Experience the Going-to-the-Sun Road, the world’s most scenic drive on the Red Jammer buses crossing Glacier National Park.

Door to door 9. I suppose contacting the Attorney General to resolve the fact that that Internet site has billed your credit card three times instead of once is the only route to take at this point. 10. It was definitely odd that there were no cab drivers at the airport at 3 o’clock in the morning when you finally landed in Costa Rica, but booking a transfer to your very remote hotel would have been a good thing to remember when you purchased your airline ticket and hotel online.

These facts are humorous, however, when it happens to you, it is not quite so funny.

MODERN DAY VETERANS

Legal fallout from 2011 Stanley Cup riot not over

Looters to face civil suits

For over 100 years, the Last Post Fund, a non-profit organization, has ensured that no eligible veteran is denied a dignified funeral and burial, as well as a military gravestone, due to insufficient funds at time of death.

London Drugs has filed the first civil lawsuits against 14 Stanley Cup rioters who trashed the firm’s downtown Vancouver store two years ago. Some are still before the courts on criminal charges but others – like 22-year-old Surrey looter Victor Varela – have been convicted. Varela admitted stealing two laptop computers, binoculars and a camera before being sentenced to 30 days in jail for participating in a riot. London Drugs is seeking a combined total of $50,000 in damages from the initial four small-claims lawsuits it has filed. But CEO Wynne Powell said money recovered through the courts must be repaid to insurance companies. “We’re not doing this for the money,” Powell said. “We’re doing this on behalf of the staff who felt they were going to lose their lives on that night and felt terrorized by these people.” More than 340 looters poured into the store on the night of the riot, after the Vancouver Canucks lost the Stanley Cup to the Boston Bruins, and more than $450,000 in merchandise was taken. Store staff hid in a secure steel room but Powell said they didn’t

Powell noted Varela later bragged about selling what he took for cash and although he apologized in court, he did not return the money. Six of the rioters targeted in the lawsuits aren’t yet identified

but the remaining eight have been charged and all but one has pleaded guilty. The maximum payout from any individual small-claims case is $25,000. Powell said London Drugs intends to file more small-claims suits against between eight and 21 more rioters before June 15, when a two-year deadline to file runs out.

With a few weeks of beautiful spring weather behind us, chances are, if you’re a golfer on the Semiahmoo Peninsula, you’re itching to hit the links if you haven’t already. If you plan to be golfing a lot this year – and you want to be on your A-game – you’ll need to make sure your clubs are in top condition. If you’re in the market for some new golf clubs, there is a wide range of lines available for every skill level, according to GolfTEC personal coach Matthew Bartholomew, who said finding the proper model of clubs, and having them professionally fitted, is essential to one’s game. Bartholomew shared his top picks for drivers, irons and putters. Two of the top-rated drivers currently on the market are the Callaway Razr Xtreme and Callaway Xhot. In recent years, Callaway has teamed up with Lamborghini in developing state-of-theart materials to create their drivers. Using carbon fibre as opposed to titanium results in a club head with 1/3 the density of other drivers, and allows for varying thickness for ball speed. These lighter, more forgiving drivers maximize the speed of the club face. For a great all-around driver, Bartholomew recommends the Ping G25 series. “Ping’s edge is definitely in their design and function,” he noted. “They are very leading edge and can cater to all different types of players.”

Add a high-tech edge Technology in the golf industry is evolving at a quick pace. Here are some top picks for gadgets and gizmos to add to your golf bag this season:

Garmin G6 Approach GPS The sleek handheld G6 includes more than 27,000 preloaded worldwide courses and an internal rechargeable battery. Colourful distance arcs indicate how far you need to hit when laying up, while touch targeting lets you touch any point on the sunlight-readable display to find the precise distance to that spot.

SkyPro Swing Analyzer Endorsed by the Golf Channel’s Michael Breed, the ultra-lightweight SkyPro attaches just below the grip and captures as many as 10,000 data points, from club head speed to impact position, and then sends the information via Bluetooth to your smartphone app. And you don’t even have to push a button.

Titleist Pro V1 The hugely popular, Tour-proven Pro V1 has been amped up even more in 2013, combining exceptional distance with soft feel and “drop-and-stop” greenside control.

Adidas Adizero Solid Polo

Players can make a statement in bright yellow, while the tailored fit of this moisture-wicking, mesh-ventilated, 100% polyester polo allows for an unrestricted swing.

Ecco Biom Hybrid Shoe

Walk straight off the golf course to a night on the town with the Ecco Biom Hybrid, a spikeless shoe with more than 150 molded traction bars for gripping power, but a casual style with a highperformance upper made of strong, lightweight, breathable and abrasionresistant yak leather that provides maximum comfort.

Club fitting essential to performance › from page 34 twisting at impact – as well as Cobra AMP Cell, with a customizable chassis for adjusting loft and lie. When it comes to putters, Bartholomew said the Scotty Cameron Titleist is still a highly sought-after premium putter for higher-skilled golfers, available in

a number of different models for different strokes. For a more all-around putter – recommended for those with less experience with the game – he suggests checking out the line of putters by Ping. Whatever brand you choose, Bartholomew stresses the importance of getting properly fitted,

paying particular attention to lie angle, length, club head design, shaft flex and grip size. “Buying off the shelf can be problematic to game improvement,” he said. “A good swing can be punished because your arm is a little longer than normal, so the clubs you just bought do not sit properly.”

Advance-voting polls now open Realtors seek to ease transfer tax Politicians urged to raise threshold for two per cent charge

Advance polls opened Wednesday across B.C., and Elections BC is working on getting more people to vote early. Elections BC surveyed voters after the 2009 election, which saw overall turnout fall to a record low 51 per cent of eligible voters. The most common reason given was being too busy on election day, set for May 14. All 85 constituencies have advance polling locations open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day until May 11. Locally, advancedvoting locations include Hyland Elementary

(6677 140 St.) and Peace Portal Alliance Church (15128 27B Ave.) for Surrey-Panorama; Mt. Olive Lutheran Church (2350 148 St.) and St. John’s Presbyterian Church (1480 George St.) for Surrey-White Rock; and Clayton Hall (18513 70 Ave.), Shannon Hall (6050A 176 St.) and Morgan Elementary (3366 156A St.) for SurreyCloverdale. Registered voters should bring their voting cards and either one piece of government ID or two documents that show the voter’s name and residential address.

Jeff Nagel Black Press

B.C. realtors are prodding provincial election candidates to agree to ease the bite of the property transfer tax for home buyers. The property transfer tax (PTT) consists of one per cent charged on the first $200,000 in property value and two per cent after that. The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) wants the next provincial government to raise the threshold where the two per cent tax level starts to apply to $525,000. That would mean a $600,000 home currently charged $10,000 in PTT each time it changes hands would instead be charged $6,750, saving buyers $3,250.

“While the PTT is not top of mind in most people’s daily lives, when the time comes to purchase a home this tax becomes a significant burden for home buyers in B.C. to shoulder,” REBGV president Sandra Wyant said. She said the PTT was introduced as a wealth tax 26 years ago – when just five per cent of Metro Vancouver homes sold for more than $200,000 – but its threshold has remained unchanged and rising home values have made many more homes subject to the two per cent portion. It’s an admirable idea, says Canadian Taxpayers Federation B.C. director Jordan Bateman. But he’s not holding his breath for any political party to change the PTT, which

raises $700 million to $1 billion a year for the province, depending on the volume of real estate sales. “Political parties will talk about the PTT, complain about it, until of course it’s election time and then they go absolutely stealthily silent on it,” Bateman said. Victoria has rejected previous suggestions from TransLink that part of the PTT raised from Metro Vancouver support transit upgrades here. Bateman said the tax drives up the already high cost of housing in the region. “It’s a perfect example of a tax that’s grown out of control,” he said. “The property transfer tax is such easy money the government never tinkered with it and became reliant on it.”

Opponents of increased coal exports through White Rock and Crescent Beach are optimistic an NDP government would be an ally. NDP Leader Adrian Dix told a rally Saturday in Vancouver there should be full public hearings on a proposal by Fraser Surrey Docks to build a new terminal on the Fraser River. Dix called the exports of U.S. thermal coal through the planned terminal a distinct issue from the B.C.-mined steelmaking coal that makes up the bulk of coal shipped through the region so far. “This is a positive step forward,” said Kevin Washbrook, of the group Voters Taking Action on Climate Change. He has spearheaded opposition to new or expanded coal terminals, assembling a coalition of climate change activists along with local residents worried about coal dust and other impacts. Port Metro Vancouver, the federally appointed port authority, has the final say on the new terminal and has indicated it could make a decision by early summer. Washbrook said he wants the NDP to go further and agree,

While it’s unclear how the province could block federal approval of a new coal terminal, Washbrook thinks the NDP’s stance adds to the weight of opposition. “Pretty much everyone now is calling on the port to consult more broadly,” Washbrook said. “If they don’t listen to these appeals, they’re not going to have a social licence to build this (coal) port.” Coal is currently shipped out of Deltaport and a terminal in

Players club snags top prize at regional festival Sarah Massah Staff Reporter

For a third year in a row, White Rock Players Club has won best production at the Greater Vancouver Zone Festival. This year, the club’s latest offering, Fools, written by Neil Simon, took home top prize at the annual province-wide festival, hosted April 28 to May 4 by the White Rock Players Club at Coast Capital Theatre. Directed by Ryan Mooney, the comedy –

based on Simon’s story of young schoolmaster Leon Tolchinsky – will now face off against nine other provincial zones at Theatre BC’s annual festival, July 5-13, in Kamloops. Mooney told Peace Arch News that even more valuable than the win was the critique he received from zone adjudicator Fran Gebhard. “It was really a fantastic feeling to be honoured amongst, not only our group, but several other fantastic productions, and by

someone like Fran, who is a fantastic performer,” he said. “Having her recognize us and give her feedback, that was really special for me. Now I’ve got to take a look at the notes Fran gave me and re-evaluate some of the choices I have made.” Fools producer Marlet Magnusson said she had a feeling the play would be a top contender since it opened in April. “Right when we cast the show, I knew it was going to be a really special production,”

she said. Now, the entire cast and crew will focus on the provincial competition. The nine-day festival will feature evening performances by each of the zone winners, with Fools playing July 7 at 8 p.m., followed by a critique the following morning. The club will begin fundraising to send the production to Kamloops in the coming weeks. Anyone interested in donating can contact Nicole at 604-536-7536 or email wrpctix@uniserve.com

Musical on Vancouver stage until Saturday

Space opera with a twist Alex Browne Arts Reporter

It’s not Futurama, Flash Gordon or the infamous Plan Nine From Outer Space. But Gee Willikers, Space! – complete with snazzy crew uniforms and space hardware that looks suspiciously like a collision between a glue gun and the contents of a household recycling bin – seems a sure bet to please fans of the deliberately cheesy, retro-futuristic spaceopera genre. A collaboration of White Rock Players Club board member Kate Stadel (nee Bethell) and Toni Maggio (of Toronto’s Third Kid Productions) the original musical hits the stage this week until Saturday at Vancouver’s Renegade Studios, 125 E. 2 Ave., with shows at 8 p.m., as well as a 2 p.m. matinee Saturday. Local theatre fans will recognize Colin Lane as Squelch, smart sidekick to inept space explorer Capt. Kybosh (Matt Loop) and Mike Balser as the all-important Roadie, a hireling who ends up doing most of the work on the spaceship. Also involved in the race between teams from Earth and the alien Planet Zifroidia in search of scarce Magnorious (“the most utilized element since high-fructose corn syrup”) are Deanna Overland, as the “very tough” Captain Salvo; Leslie Dos Remedios, as Kybosh’s largely decorative companion, Lola Lewis, and Maggio in the role of evil Lord Nefarious.

Gee Willickers, Space! is on stage in Vancouver until Saturday. “Evil roles are the most fun,” Stadel, who also directs, commented. “She plays it very androgynously. “Toni and I started writing it about four years ago,” she said, adding that she met Maggio during the six years she spent in the Toronto professional theatre scene after cutting her teeth on White Rock and Lower Mainland shows. “We met through Second City – she graduated from their training program and I’ve always had a strong comedy background. “We wanted to create a strong female musical character and we also wanted to do something with a goofy retro outer-space theme. We found it a really fun idea, and, at that time, we hadn’t seen anything like like it. Since I came back to Vancouver, we’ve

been busy writing it over Skype.” In addition to the sharp humour of the script, there are also some funny songs, Stadel said, which have been shaped by the expertise of musical director Jane Milliken. “Toni and I basically wrote the songs and we were able to hum the tunes for her – she took that and helped us compose and orchestrate the music,” Stadel said. But those who want to catch this premiere production of Stadel’s Rock Theatre Co. should act fast to reserve tickets. “The Renegade Studios are the old Vancouver Playhouse scene shop, so there are only about 60 seats in the theatre space,” she said. Tickets are $20 at the door, or reserve online at www. rocktheatreco.com

Dream for young pianists Alex Browne Arts Reporter

students choosing registered music teachers. The inspiration was a similar concert organized two years ago by the North Shore branch. “My ears really perked up,” she said. “I thought to myself, I’d really like my branch kids to have the opportunity.” The soloists were chosen from two exhaustive rounds of auditioning starting last November, she said. White Rock cellist and arranger

Harold Birston (of Semiahmoo Strings fame), who will be a member of the Sinfonia for the concert, said he’s looking forward to playing. “Clyde is the perfect person to direct a concert like this – he’s such a benevolent, kind person; sort of like a slimmer Santa Claus,” he said. “I can’t wait to see what he’s come up with for these pieces.” Contributed photo Tickets are available at the Bell Centre box office, 604-507-6355. Final Young pianists are set to perform in Surrey May 12 for Concerto Stars.

It’s a young pianist’s dream.

Matt Erhart seeks second national title

Coach aims for rare feat Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

When the puck drops on the Royal Bank Cup this weekend in Summerside, P.E.I., there will be more than just a national title on the line for Surrey Eagles head coach Matt Erhart. The 34-year-old Delta native will be aiming to become the first BC Hockey Leaguer in league history to win a RBC Cup as both a player and as a coach. Erhart was a rookie defenceman with the Eagles during the team’s first championship run in 1998, when the Eagles cruised to an RBC title, defeating Saskatchewan’s Weyburn Red Wings in the final. “We had a really special team that year,” Erhart recalled Monday, a day after the Eagles returned home from Nanaimo, where they captured the Western Canada Cup to earn a berth in the Royal Bank tournament, which begins Saturday. “I was only a rookie, so I didn’t have the hugest role, per se. But I remember we got off to a great start and just kind of cruised from there. And in a short-term tournament, that’s huge. “We felt comfortable and confident – I think we were 5-0 in the tournament and then won in the final 4-1.” Good memories aside, Erhart said he hasn’t given much thought to what it would mean to win a national title both on the ice and behind the bench. Regardless of whether he makes history with an Eagles’ championship in P.E.I., Erhart has already become just the second person in BCHL history to win a B.C. title as both player and coach, with the other being Ernie Gare Jr. “We don’t have 100 per cent for a lot of the league’s early years, › see page 46

Tritons fall to Blaze The White Rock Tritons’ early-season struggles continued last weekend, as the team lost twice – by convincing margins – to the red-hot Langley Blaze. On Sunday at South Surrey Athletic Park, the Tritons lost both ends of a doubleheader against Langley, first falling 10-4, followed by a 23-0 loss in the nightcap. The second game lasted just five innings before the mercy rule was invoked. The Blaze, first in the BC Premier Baseball League with an 11-3 record, scored 11 runs in the first inning and cruised from there. In the first game, White Rock – which made nine errors over the two-game series – got a two-RBI performance from Matt Stephens, while Kieran O’Connor and James Pavlicek also knocked in runs. The Tritons again lost to the Blaze last Friday night, 11-1, but on Thursday got into the win column with a 7-4 victory over the North Delta Blue Jays.

Game schedule While the RBC Cup begins Saturday, the Eagles open the tournament Sunday against the Truro Bearcats. They also play Monday against the host Summerside Western Capitals.

NLL title game to be held Saturday

National Lacrosse League returns to Langley Black Press

After twice hosting National Lacrosse League pre-season games, the Langley Events Centre will be the site of the 2013 NLL championship final. The game, which will be played Saturday, May 11 at 4 p.m. – and broadcast live on the CBS Sports Network – will pit the East Division champion Rochester Knighthawks against the West Division champion Washington Stealth. The Stealth, who are based out of Everett, Wash., were scheduled to host the game, but their home

Danica Stockstad sets record

Masters meet nets medals It was a good weekend in the water for the Semiahmoo Masters Swim Club recently, as the group placed first in the “small team” division at provincial masters swim championships in Vancouver. The meet, held in late April, was highlighted by Semiahmoo’s Danica Stockstad, who set a new provincial record in the 400-m individual medley, clocking a gold-medal winning time of five minutes, 50.46 seconds. Stockstad also placed first in the 50-m backstroke, 50-, 100-, 200- and 400-m freestyle swims and the 100-m IM. Others to find the podium included Robyn Sawyer, who won silver in 50- and 100-m back and 50-m butterfly, and bronze in the 100-m back; Bonnie Hartney, who was second in 50-m breaststroke and third in two other events;

Heike Beer, first in 50and 100-m back; Craig Slater, first in three backstroke distances, second in 50-m fly and 200-m IM and third in the 100-m IM; and Anne-Lynn Stockstad, second in 50-m fly and third in 200-m free. Rounding out the medal-winners was Dale Freeman, who took top spot in two events – the 200- and 400-m IM –won silver in the 100-m back and 100-m fly and won bronze in the 400-m free and 100-m IM. Another Semiamhoo swimmer, Aart Looye, had to withdrew from the meet after suffering a torn bicep muscle in his first event, the 50-m backstroke, in which he still finished third. Three Semi relay teams also made the podium – the women’s 4x50 free team won gold, while the women’s 4x50 medley and the mixed medley teams won bronze. – Nick Greenizan

arena, Comcast Arena, was already booked, thus resulting in the move north to the Lower Mainland. And after team officials were unable to find open weekend dates at other arenas in the Puget Sound area – and not wanting to defer the game to Rochester – the decision was made to come across the border and into Canada. “Keeping the (championship) game in our region is the best outcome for our fans and will maintain our home-floor advantage,” said David Takata, the Stealth president, in a press release.

Gary Ahuja

“The Langley Events Centre is one of the Pacific Northwest’s premier facilities and has hosted NLL exhibition games during the past two seasons,” he added. “Getting the fans this close to the action for a championship game will be special. “The mid-afternoon game will help our fans make the trip to Langley and back in one exciting day.” “They had talked to us a while back,” said Jared Harman, the LEC’s director of business development. “And early to middle of last week, they called us and said

Washington wasn’t going to be a possibility.” The LEC has previously hosted pre-season National Lacrosse League action in both 2011 and 2012, including the Stealth playing the Toronto Rock in the first game. “We took a lot of pride in hosting those games,” Harman said. “It is exciting that they chose us and it is also exciting that the league approved us as a suitable replacement venue for them.” “We have a lot of work to do; it is a big event, and once again the facility will be on display,” he

added. “We want to make the community proud and make them want to come back again.” The respective rosters of both the Stealth and the Knighthawks feature a few names that may be familiar to Lower Mainland lacrosse fans – three players are former members of the Western Lacrosse Association’s Langley Thunder. Playing for the Stealth are Lewis Ratcliff and Athan Iannucci, while Brett Hickey is on the team’s practice roster. The Knighthawks have Thunder player Joel McCready.

Ask a Pro Renovation Seminar + Expo to take place on May 16

GVHBA to hold renovation seminar The Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association will hold its popular Ask a Pro Renovation Seminar + Expo on May 16 at the Croatian Cultural Centre in Vancouver. “Home renovation continues to be popular and there is no shortage of fly-by-night operators taking advantage of trusting homeowners,” says GVHBA CEO Bob de Wit. “Dealing in the cash-only underground economy to avoid tax, rather than working with a professional renovator, exposes homeowners to liability issues and close scrutiny from municipal bylaw officials, provincial safety authorities and others.” Participants will learn about the

stages of the renovation process, including finding a renovator, permits and design. Presenters include renovators, a lawyer, a finance expert and a municipal building official. The exhibition area will be open between 5:30 and 7:30 to allow homeowners to speak with the more than 30 experts in attendance beforehand, and then the seminar will follow from 7:30 to 9. Admission is free, but homeowners are asked to pre-register and bring a food item for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. To register, visit www.gvhba.org, email signmeup@ gvhba.org or call 778-565-4288.

Chilliwack retirement living

Retire in style at Englewood Courtyard By Kerry Vital

Resort-style retirement living has come to Chilliwack at Englewood Courtyard. With amenities right on-site and elegant homes that are perfect for downsizers, it’s not hard to see why the project is already so popular. “We wanted to build a community atmosphere,” says realtor Kathy Virtanen. “This is the place you’re looking for if you want a sense of community. You don’t always see that anymore.” Englewood Courtyard is part of a master-planned community just for adults over the age of 45 called Englewood Village. Residents will find leisure activities, shopping, entertainment and restaurants close by; outdoor activities are particularly easy to find at Englewood Courtyard, with its close proximity to Cultus Lake and Chilliwack Lake. Among the amenities on-site is a parking lot for RVs and Club Englewood, a 2,500 square-foot clubhouse with an exercise area, social lounge, kitchen, reflecting pond and a spa. You can also enjoy a patio barbecue area, bocce courts, community garden and a dog park, Virtanen says.

We wanted to build a community atmosphere,” says realtor Kathy Virtanen.

Chilliwack has long been a popular place for Lower Mainland retirees due to its lower real estate prices, beautiful scenery and relaxing atmosphere, so it comes as no surprise that buyers have been very interested in purchasing at Englewood Courtyard. Virtanen notes that she often hears buyers saying the good value, size of the homes and great design are the reasons they are interested in the project, along with the simply amazing views of the local mountains and rural surroundings. The first phase is currently on sale, with 40 one- and two-bedroom condominium residences ranging from 879 to 1,400 square feet in a variety of floorplans. This phase of Englewood Courtyard will be the first five-storey wood frame building in Chilliwack, and will be followed by two four-storey

buildings in the later phases. Those concerned about sound travelling between the condos will find peace of mind in knowing that there will be plenty of sound reduction between each home. The residences themselves are spacious and open, and are built with West Coast-style architecture that includes glass railings and plenty of windows to let the light pour in. Each home features nine to 12-foot vaulted ceilings, laminate flooring, maple shaker-style cabinetry, granite countertops and a gas fireplace, among other beautiful features. Airconditioning for those hot summer months is also included, along with underground parking for your convenience. The condos will be built using SAFERhome standards that allow you to age-in-place, so you won’t have to worry about moving again in your golden years. If you’re in the mood for a little bit of the outdoors, you can relax on your own covered balcony or private terrace. Homes at Englewood Courtyard start at $184,900. For more information, visit www.englewoodcourtyard.ca, call 604-824-8232, or visit the presentation centre at 45750 Keith Wilson Road, Chilliwack. The presentation centre is open between 12 and 4 every day.

Submitted photos

The homes at Englewood Courtyard feature beautiful views over Chilliwack, along with gourmet kitchens, covered balconies or patios, spacious floorplans and plenty of natural light.

Scott is survived by his loving parents, Chris and Lorna Ellis, sister Lisa Boutilier, nephews Dayton and Dylan, Aunt Sharon Parisotto, cousins Brian and Barry Parisotto and their families. He will also be fondly remembered and in the hearts of so many others of his extended family and friends both here and in Fort McMurray. The family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude and special thanks to Scott’s best friend Dan Clark for trying to revive Scott by performing CPR until the ambulance arrived and also a special thank you to the North Shore paramedics. There will be no service but a celebration of Scott’s short life will be planned for a later date. Though your smile has gone forever And your hand we cannot touch We shall never lose sweet memories Of the one we loved so much

Did you know that the City of Surrey has a Tree Protection Bylaw? Tree Protection Bylaw No. 16100 protects trees against damage or removal, including many trees on private property. If any protected tree is removed without a permit, fines can range from $1,000 to $10,000 per tree. Damage includes cutting off the top, removing too many branches, burying the trunk or anything that will cause a tree to die or decline; fines and charges can apply to these practices. If you want to remove a tree on your property, please check our website, call 604-591-4675 or email treebylaw@surrey.ca to check if it is protected first. For tree concerns on City of Surrey property, call 604-501-5050. All tree work should be done by a qualified certified arborist. www.surrey.ca/treeprotection
