Surrey mom’s disappearance still a mystery – 50 years later
‘I’m proud of my life in Canada’ ‘Bulldog’ baseball player Yuta Kikuzaki returns to Japan after two seasons with the Whalley Chiefs
Lucy Ann Johnson ‘vanished’ in the early 1960s

HE DIDN’T come to Canada for
LINDA EVANS was only a child of seven or eight years old when her
mom disappeared, so she doesn’t remember much. Her mother, Lucy Ann Johnson (nee Carvell) went missing in the 1960s. But as a kid, Evans never knew any more details than that – except that her dad didn’t want to talk about it. “It’s like she vanished into thin air,” says Evans, who is now in her late 50s and is Johnson’s only surviving child. Johnson is one of the Surrey RCMP’s oldest missing person cases. Police say though she was originally reported missing by her husband in 1965, investigators later learned from a neighbour that she hadn’t been seen since September 1961. Her husband, Marvin, later admitted she actually had gone missing in 1961. Believing the young mom may have met with foul play, police did a thorough investigation which included excavating the family’s property near 103 Avenue and 145A Street in North Surrey. According to the RCMP, neighbours had previously seen Marvin digging a septic field in the yard. Lucy Ann Johnson No evidence was ever found to support the theory that Lucy was a victim of crime. Charges were considered against her husband, but again, there was insufficient evidence. Lucy was born in 1935 in Alaska, married Marvin in Blaine, Wa. in 1954, and settled in Surrey a year to two later. The couple had two children, daughter Linda, and a son named Daniel. Linda still lives in Surrey, while Daniel, she says, passed away in his late teens. According to police, Marvin was listed as first mate on a tugboat, but was unemployed in 1961. He remarried and continued to raise the children with his new wife. He passed away in the late 1990s. See RCMP / Page 5
baseball. But after two seasons playing for the Whalley Chiefs, Yuta Kikuzaki didn’t want to leave. “I’m so sad,” said the 18-year-old Japanese exchange student, who left for home Monday (July 1) to write entrance exams for university. But the righthanded pitcher didn’t rule out coming back. “If the team makes the playoffs, I will come back for one week,” he promised. It’s unlikely he will be back for the postseason. The Chiefs aren’t likely to qualify for the B.C. Premier Baseball League’s playoffs this Yuta season. But they Kikuzaki also aren’t likely to forget Kikuzaki, who impressed his teammates on the field, and became their friend off it. Kikuzaki wasn’t thinking about baseball when he came to Canada in the winter of 2011. He did play while he was in Japan, but put the game on hold after an arm injury.
“Sands was great... I couldn’t speak English when I started.”
BOAZ JOSEPH / THE LEADER
Japanese exchange student Yuta Kikuzaki, who pitched for the Whalley Chiefs for two seasons, headed home yesterday to write entrance exams for university. During his time in Surrey, Kikuzaki impressed his teammates on the field, and became their friend off it.

dential streets of White Rock and Surrey early Friday ended with three men arrested. The trio – all in their early to mid-20s – were captured around 1 a.m. June 28, after a grey Jeep Cherokee was tracked to the area of 62 Avenue and 126 Street by police helicopter.
According to police reports, the Cherokee caught a White Rock RCMP officer’s attention around 12:30 a.m., after it was spotted running red lights and stop signs. Given the high rate of speed, a pursuit was not initiated, however, Air 2 – one of the Mounties’ dedicated helicopters – was deployed. When an officer on the ground caught up to the vehicle near 160 Street and 8 Avenue, the driver ignored the police

BATHROOM SAFETY TIPS from Crossroads Mobility Solutions 1.
Always keep a safety grid or rubber backed bath mat outside your shower.
When balance and strength are an issue, a bathtub transfer bench is essential. This is a large bench where two legs sit inside the tub and two legs sit outside the tub allowing you to sit down outside the tub.
Use bath stools, chairs and benches (not a plastic patio chair) which have non-slip rubber feet or suction cups.
Built-in shower seats get slippery when wet – place a folded towel on them for traction.
Suction-cup grab bars are only safe when installed right. Be sure the wall is clean and free of any soap residue or dirt when installing.
Grab bars: for pulling up from a seated position, place the bar horizontally. For stepping in and out assistance, place the bar vertically. Never install diagonally.
love your love love your smile! love your smile! your smile! love smile! love love your your children, teens and your children, teens smile! adults children, teens smile! adults 7.
Do not trust your safety to the shower curtain rod, the towel rack, the soap dish or the washcloth rack in the shower. These were designed to hold a wet towel at the most... and anyone needing grab bar assistance weighs more than a wet towel.

BC Hydro fires 5 workers over pot grow-ops Theft of power, equipment alleged against employees by Jeff Nagel BC hyDrO has fired five workers
after an internal investigation into whether staff aided marijuana growops that illegally tapped electricity. Three more employees remain under investigation, the Crown corporation said. Hydro executive vice-president Greg Reimer said the accusations against the workers include theft of BC Hydro equipment and facilitating the theft of electricity. The workers fired are in Surrey, Prince George, Coquitlam and Campbell River. Reimer said information gathered has been forwarded to the RCMP and they’ll determine whether any criminal investigation ensues. “We hope that the activities of a very small number of individuals do not overshadow the hard work and dedication of our employees who work every day to safely keep the lights on in British Columbia,” Reimer said. Union officials previously confirmed some members had been suspended with pay as part of the investigation into conduct related to marjuana grow-ops. However, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers local 258 business manager Doug McKay cautioned against a company “witch hunt” against workers who may not have done anything wrong.

commute to work at an average of 28.4 minutes, according to new data released by Statistics Canada. Maple Ridge workers have it worst, battling traffic for an average of 35.2 minutes, while the commute is as much as 33 minutes in the Tri-Cities and 31 minutes in Surrey. The numbers were contained in the voluntary longform National Household Survey conducted as part of the 2011 Census. The region’s shortest commute was 24.3 minutes in North Vancouver City, where residents spend even less time getting to work than Vancouverites, who average
25.4 minutes. Metro commuters overwhelmingly commuted by private vehicle – 70.7 per cent – but that’s down from 74.4 per cent in 2006. Car pooling remains infrequent, with less than five per cent of commuters saying they were passengers in private vehicles. Public transit use was 19.7 per cent in Metro Vancouver, behind Toronto, Montreal and OttawaGatineau, which had transit usage rates of 20 to 23 per cent. Transit ridership was up from 16.5 per cent reported in 2006. See TRANSIT / Page 4

Transit: Trips increased in 2012 From page 1
Broken down between travel mode, the findings show Metro commuters spent much longer getting to work if they took public transit – one possible reason why many still prefer to drive. The average transit rider here commuted for 40.9 minutes compared to 26.4 minutes for motorists in private vehicles. Walkers averaged a 14.4-minute stroll to work while cyclists biked on average 23.8 minutes. TransLink hopes to eventually whittle the share of car trips in the region down to 50 per cent, while increasing the number of people who take transit, cycle or walk. TransLink spokesman Derek Zabel said the Statistics Canada findings are consistent with TransLink data, particularly on the growth of public transit. “We are increasing our ridership,” he said. “We have seen an 84 per cent increase over the last decade, equal to 109 million more transit trips.”
Transit trips also increased in the last year, he said, through more efficient use of existing resources, with no extra injection of money. Despite a huge push to add bike lanes, particularly in Vancouver, there’s little sign of cycling getting out of first gear as a way of getting to work. Just 4.4 per cent pedalled to work in Vancouver, while cyclists made up just two per cent of commuters in North Vancouver, 1.3 per cent in flat Richmond and less than one per cent in most of the rest of the region. The car remains king in the Abbotsford-Mission area, where 92.2 per cent of workers commuted by private vehicles, just 2.5 per cent used public transit, 2.6 per cent walked and 0.8 per cent biked. The survey also found the City of Vancouver was the workplace of 36.1 per cent of commuters from Burnaby and 13.1 per cent of commuters living in Surrey. Eight per cent of B.C. residents worked at home rather than at an outside workplace.

PBL. “Last year he was very effective,” said Hargreaves. “No one knew him as a pitcher. He snuck up on a lot of teams. “They remembered him this year.” Kikuzaki is 3-6 with a 3.26 ERA, striking out 32 batters in 10 games played this season. But although the ERA and win percentage had dropped, he has thrown six complete games, one off the league lead. “He’s a bulldog. When he gets the ball, he wants to finish the game,” said Hargreaves. “Win or lose, he’s very competitive. He wants the ball at the end of the game. “It’s no surprise he has the most complete games for us this year and last.” His two-year stint in the PBL came to an end last week. Sad to leave, Kikuzaki will have many fond memories of his time with the Chiefs. “Baseball is more friendly over here, I can talk to the coaches more often,” he said. “And my teammates are more friendly. “Sands was great.

From page 1 Lucy apparently had regular contact with the Catholic Aid Society and worked at St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver for a period in 1954. At the time of her disappearance, she was 5’5” tall, 110 pounds, with a dark complexion and dark brown hair. She is of First Nations descent and would be 77 now. Investigators hope that by re-telling the story of Lucy’s disappearance, someone may recall information that will assist police and help her family move forward. For Evans, finding out what happened to her mom, after all these years, would provide at least some answers to a mystery that has haunted her since childhood. “I would like to know before I die,” she says. “She’s got grandkids and great-grandkids.” Anyone with information about this case, no matter how seemingly insignificant, is asked to call the Surrey RCMP Missing Person Unit at 604-599-0502 and ask for Const.

video recently posted to YouTube of a bear entering and exiting a pick-up truck by unlatching the doors might be funny for human viewers safely ensconced in their concrete and glass condos, but encounters with wildlife in the city rarely end well. For the animals. Posters on light standards of missing cats and small dogs often signify a coyote is on the prowl, turning docile pets into easy prey. And it seems every spring there are sightings of bears in urban neighbourhoods, ambling through backyards and down alleys, tipping over garbage cans, and pawing at bird feeders. Last month, a bevy of bruins was sighted in Surrey. In Clayton Heights, an adult black bear killed a goat and injured a llama, and was subsequently shot – likely fatally – by the livestock’s owner. The bear ran off, but the amount of blood left behind painted a grim picture. Later in the week, near the same neighbourhood, another large black bear scaled the back fence of a home and lazily hunkered down in a strawberry patch for a treat. He left on his own, unharmed, after eating his fill. And a third bear spotted wandering in Tynehead was tranquilized, captured and released further east by conservation officers. One of the great allures of living in British Columbia is the vast natural wilderness that begins right in our backyard. It’s easy to be at a grocery store in the morning and then having a picnic in the middle of a first- or second-growth forest in the afternoon, surrounded by mountains and trees for as far as the eye can see. Odds are there are creatures amongst those trees. And sometimes, they wander out of those woods and into our streets – surprising us all. As B.C. Conservation Officer Jack Trudgian said, “People just aren’t used to seeing them... this place does have bears.” For some, their presence may seem an infringement on our space, but we have to remember their ancestors were here long before us. We’re encroaching on territories and behaviours bred into them for thousands of years. We need to respect their coexistence with us. – Black Press
all it the Beach Blanket Budget. Despite having to campaign once again to win a seat in a byelection, Premier Christy Clark has ordered the legislature to sit without her through most of July to pass the budget that was tabled before the election. This rare summer session ensures a couple of things. First, there will be less time for real financial results to contradict the rosy predictions made by Finance Minister Mike de Jong in February. Second, it ensures that there will be minimum public attention paid to the deliberations, as people focus on their summer vacations and put the business of running the province aside again. B.C. Liberal house leader Mike de Jong insists there has been no decision made on whether the legislature will sit again in the fall. The standard schedule, put in place under former premier Gordon Campbell, calls for MLAs to assemble in October and November, to consider legislation, after a spring devoted to the budget and ministry spending.

This is why I mentioned last week that one of the more significant instructions given to Clark’s cabinet ministers was to examine turning the Liquor Distribution Branch into a separate corporation with its own board of directors. That in itself may slightly increases the size of government. But it could be a preliminary step to selling the whole thing off and reducing the government’s role to taxing and regulating booze sales. You can imagine how that would go over with the NDP, with former liquor store union boss George Heyman among the loudest opposition MLAs. This is the kind of change that should be debated in public, not by press release. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com

Canadians: A surprising – and extremely kind– bunch of people I wIll never understand Canadians. Even after having
lived in this beautiful country for over a decade, their honesty and kindness keeps surprising me. On Sunday, June 23, after have gone shopping with my children, I lost my wallet with about $200 inside. I went back into the Superstore – in Newton – and asked if someone had by any chance picked my wallet. At that point no one had. With my children, I spent some time walking around hoping that I would at least find the wallet thrown somewhere with my identity documents inside, but still to no avail. My daughter saw how depressed I had become; it was difficult to pretend otherwise. Finally, I drove back home knowing that things do happen for a reason and I must just accept the bad experience. While driving home, I blamed myself for keeping cash in my wallet and for having been less attentive in what I was doing. I was thinking, “I have seen and read stories of people whose wallets have been returned to their owners with all contents intact,” but I thought that could not happen to me. When I reached home, my daughter helped me carry some stuff into the house while I made a last attempt to search the car seat, hoping to find my wallet. At that point, my daughter came dashing and shouting that “Superstore called – they have your wallet with the money still inside.” I drove back to Superstore and found my wallet and all its contents intact. So was the contact name and number of the Surrey man who had found my wallet. Driving home, I was speechless. I was consumed with thoughts, asking myself of how people can be so honest and kind, because that kind of generosity is hardly found in my country of origin – no one would return someone’s wallet with cash in it. Upon arriving home, I called the man and through his daughter conveyed my gratitude and appreciation of their noble act and promised to write to the newspaper telling my story, which I just did. Canadians, thank you for such generosity that is ingrained in your hearts. Mulife Muchali

Coun. Hunt should go Leave of absence
is not good news
PremIer ChrIsty Clark pulled popularly elected municipal politicians
– Peter Fassbender from Langley, Marvin Hunt from Surrey, and Scott Hamilton from Delta – to win in the recent provincial election. She was counting on their popularity. Well, if novice Amrik Virk could win in Surrey-Tynehead, Clark underestimated her strength. Marvin Hunt’s move out of Surrey council to the B.C. legislature may hurt nobody. Most of Surrey’s councillors have their roots in one party – the Surrey Electors Team. There is no critic, no opposition, no meaningful debates. The painful process starts now. The public has been handed an unfair fait accompli. The honourable thing for Marvin Hunt to do is what his counterpart Scott Hamilton of Delta North has done: Go on, leave. If Surrey had a ward system, a byelection could easily be called in only one relevant ward instead of a financially monstrous vote in an at-large system as it may require now. Shan Rana, Surrey

PIng Pong is very popular for all ages, regardless of the level of income or skill. At Guildford Recreation Centre, it used to cost $2 ($1 per person per hour) with three tables available from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. for five weekdays and 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. for the weekend. This provided great fun for six-year-olds as well as 80-year-olds. Later, the centre converted one table space to a small kid’s playground (filled with giant plastics). The other two tables are now played for free. Yet, it was done without proper open consultation and without considering a petition signed by the public. To make things worse, the centre took away another table. Can you imagine three teams of players fighting for one table? Or, you pay a $12 drop-in fee (outrageous 600-per-cent jump from $2) to play the table placed inside the gym. Or, you’re “rich” enough to pay a more than $300-$400 annual fee to play. The centre also drastically limited the play time to three hours for three days only. When the City of Surrey is boasting its attraction to families, what Guildford Rec Centre is doing contradicts its efforts and hurts its reputation. The centre should, at least, have two tables available.

government policy have been rolled back at the Provincial Health Services Authority. Board chair Wynne Powell said the three-per-cent raises for 187 non-union staff are being rescinded and steps are being taken to prevent any future repeat of the approval. The move is expected to avert an increase in payroll costs of $660,115 per year. Lynda Cranston resigned without severance as PHSA president and CEO June 21, although she is staying on to assist with a transition until her end-of-
July retirement. “I fear the action of PHSA’s former president and CEO may have let our patients and the people of British Columbia down,” Powell said in a statement. “Understandably, the board is very concerned and, on behalf of the board, I sincerely apologize.” The PHSA runs B.C. Children’s Hospital, B.C. Women’s Hospital, the B.C. Cancer Agency and various other specialty or provincial services. Health Minister Terry Lake has been sharply critical of the pay hikes, which contravened last fall’s provincially ordered freeze on public sector management salaries.

StudentS at East Kensington Elementary have been assured a safer passage to learning, following a commitment by the Surrey School Board to hire a crossing guard for the South Surrey school. “Staff couldn’t have done anything without the board’s direction,” Trustee Laurae McNally explained last Thursday of a motion she made June 6 to authorize the hire. “I didn’t want parents worrying about it all summer. We needed to do something, so I did it.” Parents were
concerned with the safety of getting their children across 184 Street to the heritage school. They said they had been asking for help for at least five years, due to drivers ignoring school-zone speed limits and even the flashing amber lights of a pedestrianactivated crosswalk. “They don’t care,” parent Dannie Caron said, describing drivers who have become irate with her for holding up traffic so children can cross. District officials at that time assured a full review of the situation, including a look at traffic volume and speed. In the
interim, the district’s Safe Schools staff were assigned to monitor the crosswalk. McNally said she knew even before the traffic study came back that the vehicle numbers wouldn’t justify a crossing guard. Knowing speeding was the issue, she proposed her motion, and it received unanimous support. And that means students returning to East Kensington classrooms in September for the 2013-14 school year will be greeted by a crossing guard “forever more,” she said. “The moms and dads do their part,” McNally said. “But we

School support workers take job action CUPE talking about what to do come September by Sheila Reynolds about 75 unionized
school support workers took job action last Tuesday afternoon holding a half-hour “study session.” Members of the more than 3,800-strong CUPE (Canadian Union of Public Employees) local 728 – representing workers such as education assistants, custodians and clerical and maintenance workers – voted 87 per cent in favour of striking in May. The union says talks with the employer have broken down because of government’s net-zero wage stance. CUPE workers haven’t had a pay increase since 2009. All union locals across the Lower Mainland were taking some form of job action on Tuesday. Not wanting to impact students or teachers at this point, Surrey’s sit-in was intended as a short planning session to discuss further job action that will likely be taken once school resumes in September. K-12 locals across B.C. are expecting to have strike votes taken by the end of June.
Run for the Cure comes to Surrey
Surrey iS now host to
its own high-profile run to combat breast cancer. On Thursday, Coun. Mary Martin announced that Bear Creek Park is the newest site for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation’s CIBC Run for the Cure. The run is the largest single-day, volunteer-led, event dedicated to raising funds for breast cancer research, education and awareness programs. The event is a 1km or 5km run or walk and will take place on Sunday, Oct. 6. “It has been 10 years since we launched a new run site in B.C. and
we are very excited to be here in Surrey, one of the fastest-growing cities in Canada,” said Wendy Slavin, CEO of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation – BC/Yukon Region. “Now that we have a run site between Abbotsford and Vancouver, it will easy and convenient for those not only in Surrey, but in Langley, White Rock and other communities to take part.” For Sally Haysom, the event is always inspirational.

Business tax gap narrows
A smAll business lobby group says the gap between business and residential property tax rates charged by B.C. municipalities is narrowing, but remains too wide. The Canadian Federation of Independent
Business released a report card showing small businesses paid on average 2.7 times as much in tax as residential taxpayers for property of the same value in 2012, down slightly from 2.78 in 2011. It’s the fourth straight year that gap
has narrowed. “We still have a long way to go,” said CFIB provincial affairs director Mike Klassen, who praised cities for reining in business tax rates. “There is a clear trend emerging.” The CFIB report lists North Saanich, Coquitlam, Revel-
stoke, Vancouver and Metchosin as having the highest businessresidential tax rate ratio, ranging from 5.6 to 4.35 times residential rates. The gap actually increased significantly in Terrace, Burnaby, West Vancouver and Kitimat.

Housing starts to climb A smAll increase in
new home construction is being forecast for 2014 in Metro Vancouver. The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. projects 18,200 homes will be started in the region this year and 18,700 in 2014, an increase next year of 2.7 per cent. Senior CMHC analyst Lance Jakubec said new construction will essentially hold steady this year, but rental apartment construction will take a larger share of multi-family housing starts. Existing home sales in Metro Vancouver are projected to be roughly the same this year as in 2012, and then grow about 10 per cent in 2014. The CMHC projects about a seven per cent increase in Fraser Valley home starts next year.
Viaducts teardown eyed The CiTy of Vancouver
is taking another step towards eventually demolishing the Georgia and Dunsmuir viaducts. Vancouver council is expected to approve a recommendation to begin up to two years of detailed study on the removal of the elevated roadways as well as planning for the city’s eastern core. “In every city’s evolution there are rare opportunities to take bold city-building steps to advance the city’s goals and livability or correct a past planning wrong,” a staff report says. The idea could complicate the drive in and out of downtown Vancouver for the 35,000 motorists who use the viaducts each day. The staff report says it must be demonstrated how a new postviaduct street system will adequately connect downtown and provide enough vehicle capacity for goods movement. Tearing down the viaducts would cost up to $132 million but could give Vancouver more waterfront parkland and additional land to build affordable and subsidized housing, the report said. “The viaducts’ removal also eliminates a physical and psychological barrier and erases an urban scar from a rapidly urbanizing part of the city.” Several Chinatown groups have endorsed the teardown plan.

If your estate plans are challenged after your death, your heirs could find themselves in a lawsuit. Estate litigation is costly, both financially and emotionally. Although you generally have the freedom to dispose of your estate as you see fit, the Wills Variation Act (the “Act”) is an exception to that rule. The Act protects your spouse and children (excluding stepchildren) if you haven’t made adequate provision for them in the Will. In those circumstances, the court may intervene and redistribute the estate.
If you decide that you want to exclude a child or spouse from your Will, it would be prudent to document your reasons in an explanatory memorandum. As long as the reasons stated in the memorandum are true, and there is a rational connection between the reasons and the exclusion, the Court will usually uphold the testator’s decision.
If a claim goes to court, the judge must decide whether the Will makes “adequate provision for the proper maintenance and support” for the spouse or child, from both a legal and moral perspective. The judge will consider factors such as
You cannot contract out of the Wills Variation Act, but a marriage or separation agreement can be helpful. Some people have entered into an agreement with their child or spouse to the effect that he or she will not challenge the Will in exchange ICBC & INJURY CLAIMS for receiving an advance on his or her inheritance. While the Court will not enforce such an agreement, it will consider the provisions of an agreement in some circumstances.

Making all the right moves Surrey’s Tanraj Sohal, at age 16, has won his eighth Canadian chess title
by Boaz Joseph
anraj Sohal had just turned five when his parents taught him the rules of chess. Something clicked, because he was soon not only beating them at their own game, in just a few months, he snagged the Canadian title for his age group. “I didn’t know much about chess at all in Grade 1,” he recalls. This year, at the age of 16, he won the Canadian Chess Championship medal in Ottawa May 19-20. It was his eighth win in his age group – he came in third three times in 11 years of competition (and that’s as checkered as his past gets). The Fleetwood Park Secondary student, who just finished Grade 11, is currently the top player in B.C. in any age group. With is rising notoriety, is there pressure? Only in that some of his teachers would be happy if he paid more attention to his school work, but a Grade Point Average a whisker under 4.0 will do. Sohal considers himself a universal player on the chessboard, not too aggressive, not too defensive. Most wins against strong players are decided late in the game, he says. There’s no way to predict a checkmate early on. He says playing adults is a bit easier than kids because adults are less imaginative in their game play. Computers also have their advantages: Record-keeping, as well as no complaints in staying up to play at 1 a.m. every night. What does Sohal’s future look like? A career path in medicine like his father is an option – but he’s getting no pressure to do that, he says. Or he could also carry on with chess, aiming for a Grandmaster title (there’s tough competition overseas). And of course, no matter which direction he takes in life, there’s always opportunity to build a board the size of a Persian rug in his living room, using his bevy of trophies as chess pieces. Your move, Tanraj. email@example.com
BOAZ JOSEPH / THE LEADER
A shadow of his latest trophy lurks behind Tanraj Sohal, who has won his eighth Canadian chess title for his age. He is currently the top player in the province.

Taking a stand against violence
Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts ties a Rakhi bracelet on Surrey RCMP Chief Supt. Bill Fordy during the annual campaign kick-off at Surrey City Hall last Tuesday. Rakhi is a traditional Indian ceremony honouring the relationship between brothers and sisters and involves the tying of a purple bracelet by a sister on her brother’s wrist as a symbol of love and respect. Bracelets are $5 and are available until Aug. 21 at Surrey City Hall, select Save-on-Foods locations, Fruiticana, DIVERSEcity, Surrey RCMP, Kwantlen Polytechnic University bookstores, KEYS: Housing & Health Solutions, and Surrey Women’s Centre. Proceeds are going to the City of Surrey’s Coalition Against Domestic Abuse.

In her retirement she enjoyed walking her dogs to the park, sitting reading by the window with her cats by her side & riding her horses.
