Accused in fatal crash disputes witness testimony outside court

‘My heart goes out to Brenda’ – driver Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

The driver of a dump truck involved in the deadly head-on collision that killed South Surrey’s Jim Neiss nearly three years ago did not give his side of the story during his trial at Surrey Provincial Court. Outside court Tuesday, Glen Edward Theriault told Peace Arch News that his silence was on the advice of his lawyer.

Noting repeatedly that he wasn’t supposed to comment, Theriault shared a few thoughts nonetheless, including one directed at Neiss’s wife, Brenda Michie. “My heart goes out to Brenda,” he said, as he stood amongst supporters during a break from the proceedings. Theriault is charged with dangerous driving causing death in connection with the Jan. 18, 2011 crash. It occurred just after 5:30 a.m. in the 19800-block

of 16 Avenue, when Theriault’s dump truck crossed a double-yellow line to pass another vehicle. The collision compressed the front section of Neiss’s Ford Explorer into less than half its width. During closing arguments Tuesday, Theriault’s lawyer, Rishi Gill, told Judge Paul Dohm that prosecutors had failed to prove Theriault’s driving was criminal in nature. “Mr. Theriault was the driver of the

truck, his driving alone caused the death of the victim,” Gill conceded. “There is a big dispute over whether (his) driving pattern (further east, between Abbotsford and Campbell Valley Park) was dangerous or negligent. We say the evidence alone cannot support that.” Neiss, 59, had been on his way to work as a Langley school-bus driver when the crash occurred. i see page 4

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team and other officers investigate after a body was found at Joe Brown Park Wednesday morning.

17th homicide of the year for City of Surrey

Body found in Panorama Ridge park Sheila Reynolds Black Press

A body was discovered in a park in Surrey Wednesday morning, marking the 17th homicide of the year in the city. The body was found in Joe Brown Park, on Station Road in the Panorama Ridge neighbourhood on Sept. 18. Sgt. Jennifer Pound, spokesperson with the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team

(IHIT), said the victim has not been identified and details were minimal as of Peace Arch News’ press deadline Wednesday afternoon. The death pushes Surrey well past the annual average over the past decade of 14 murders. The most recorded was in 2005, when there were 21. Wednesday’s crime scene is just a few blocks from Colebrook Road, where several bodies were found earlier this year, prompting Surrey

Mayor Dianne Watts to announce the installation of video cameras in the area. Anyone with information on the body found in Joe Brown Park is asked contact the IHIT tip line by calling 1-877-551-IHIT (4448), or by email at ihittipline@rcmp-grc.gc.ca  If you wish to remain anonymous call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or leave a tip on their website at Solvecrime.ca – with files from Kevin Diakiw

Transport Canada wants the City of White Rock and BNSF to review the safety of train-whistling rules that have restricted overnight use of the warning signal for more than two decades. The request was made early this month, in connection with the July 14 death of jogger Anita Lewis. The 42-year-old was struck and killed by a passenger train as she ran across the tracks at a pedestrian crossing in the 15600-block of Marine Drive at about 9:45 p.m. A Transport Canada spokesperson confirmed by email this week that the joint review “involves reviewing signage, signals and fencing to protect pedestrians and vehicles, and to determine if any changes are needed to mitigate public safety and rail safety risks.” Routine train whistling – used to alert pedestrians that a train is coming –  at White Rock crossings was restricted between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. in August 1992, at the request of the city. That request was prompted by a Transport Canada order to BNSF the month i see page 10

The latest controversy is over moving the council chambers to another building owned by the city. Council agreed to the move, and has now reversed itself. It appears this latest move came after talk of a potential lessee of the new building came to council’s attention – despite the fact that nothing appears to be very definite yet. It is also obvious when the city talks about its future. While it has so many advantages, the city hasn’t done much to sell those advantages to potential investors. The attitude seems to be that it’s up to investors to find out about White Rock for themselves. Maybe that’s part of the charm of the city. Despite its superlative ovation, it doesn’t really want to let too many people know about it. The good news is, that for those who know about it, the city remains an oasis of calm (most of the time) in an increasingly busy Metro Vancouver area.

State of the city addresses White Rock’s independence

‘Long way to go’ for commercial viability Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

White Rock needs another 7,000 people living within a five- to seven-minute walk of its town centre in order for the hub to be commercially viable. It’s a measuring stick gleaned from a former Vancouver city planner, Mayor Wayne Baldwin said last Thursday during his state of the city address, noting the planner stated an urban commercial core needs 10,000 people within that walking distance. While White Rock has “a long way to go” to achieve that goal, it is taking “major steps” to get there, Baldwin told business leaders and politicians gathered at the White Rock Community Centre for his annual address. But make no mistake, the city is not too small to exist on its own, Baldwin said. “We act as though we have a community of 80,000,” Baldwin said, describing the city being largely surrounded by Surrey as “one of our greatest advantages.” “Financially, we’re in excellent shape. We

have no debt and our reserves are solid. We’re not in a panic about anything. Are we viable? Yes, you bet we are. We are very viable.” The state of the city address is intended to share the city’s past successes and future goals with the community. Last week’s event drew about 100 people. In outlining ongoing corporate priorities, including the town centre, waterfront enhancements and infrastructure, Baldwin said it’s not uncommon for the unexpected to change the pace of their progress. He cited efforts to purchase the city’s privately owned water utility as one example, along with the proposed Fraser Surrey Docks expansion, last year’s byelection and the July 14 train fatality that killed White Rock jogger Anita Lewis. In discussing development, Baldwin gave special recognition to Bosa Properties for its 2005 contribution to the Coast Capital Playhouse project. The Miramar Village developer’s $275,000 boost “was never really realized or appreciated by the public at the

“Financially, we’re in great shape” – mayor. time,” he said, noting the new playhouse “would never have been built” without it. Bosa wasn’t invited to ceremonies celebrating the project’s completion, the mayor said, noting “I just want to correct that.” Other highlights touched on included amendments to the city’s Official Community Plan that enabled commercial activity, such as food carts south of Marine Drive; a renewed focus on the arts; and a commit-

ment to support the Spirit of the Sea Festival. Referencing “a little bit of consternation” that resulted from changes to this year’s festival, Baldwin said it is evident the event “needs some help for the future.” He pledged the city’s support and said “several sources,” including Rotary, have offered the same. “It’s a 60-year tradition and we do not want to lose it,” he said. “The help is there and I think we’ll be able to pull this off.” Regarding the water-utility purchase effort, Baldwin said council is acting on it for three reasons, all of them related to saving money. While the city will have to borrow the entire purchase amount, Baldwin said the money to be saved over the long-term – including through lower financing rates and access to government – justifies the move. “We believe that a case can be made that it would be in the financial interests of the taxpayers for the city to own the utility and we are working towards proving that case,” he said. “In the end, the final decision will be made by the taxpayers.”

Coal-dust reviews catch medical officers off guard

Health authorities reserve judgment Jeff Nagel Black Press

Fraser Health’s chief medical health officer won’t yet say if he thinks an environmentalimpact assessment – ordered last week by Port Metro Vancouver – will be sufficient to answer health concerns about a planned new coal export terminal in Surrey. Dr. Paul Van Buynder said he and counterpart Dr. Patricia Daly at the Vancouver Coastal health authority are pleased the port is now talking to them about risks from coal dust and trains. But he said they’re reserving judgment as to whether the newly announced review goes far enough until they can learn more about it. “If this doesn’t meet our needs, we will be saying so in due course,” Van Buynder said Tuesday. For months, the health officers had been calling for a comprehensive health-impact assessment of the coal-transfer facility proposed by

An anonymous bomb threat that shut down Semiahmoo Secondary Tuesday is being treated by police as a “public mischief investigation.” The school was back to running normally Wednesday, after extensive examination of the school by the emergency response team had turned up no evidence of a bomb. “There was no device found, and nothing jeopardizing student and staff safety,” Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said, noting the investigation is now in the hands of the Surrey RCMP Youth Section. While not divulging details, Paquet said the evidence “definitely has to do with the means by which the threat was conveyed.” Police were alerted in a call from school principal Bea Hadikin that a bomb threat had been received shortly before 10:30 a.m. Tuesday. Students and staff were evacuated immediately, then sent home. “It’s in the hands of the fire and police personnel to do their sweeps,” district spokesperson Doug Strachan told Peace Arch News. Officials were reportedly searching areas surrounding the school, located at 1785 148 St. Shortly after 11 a.m., emergency personnel could be seen walking toward a wooded area just east of the school building. Access to 148 Street between 17 Avenue and 20 Avenue was closed for a time. Fire crews assisted, and police were in contact with the RCMP explosive-disposal unit. Paquet noted bomb threats are always taken “extremely seriously.” “A risk-assessment was done,” he added. “It was serious enough that, for obvious safety reasons, the officers attending evacuated the school and sent all students, teachers and staff home for the remainder of the day.” By midday, the site was cleared and “deemed safe” by police.

They included the type of vehicle Weigel himself had been driving on the day of the crash, where along 16 Avenue the dump truck had passed him, the type of day it was and how many vehicles he saw ahead of him –  differences Weigel said could be the result of a clerical error, misinterpretation of information he provided or his own mistake. Gill also asked Weigel why he didn’t stay at the scene to speak to police right away. “When I stopped and viewed what I seen, I had to leave,” Weigel said. “I called later. I just couldn’t stay there.” Outside court, Theriault said Weigel had “exaggerated lots” in his version of events. “There’s lots of detail that doesn’t come out,” he told PAN, pledging to tell his story after a verdict has been rendered. In closing arguments for the Crown, prosecutor Winston Sayson said Theriault’s pattern of driving –  including speeding, crossing double-yellow lines and passing – was “a purposeful,

deliberate action.” Pointing to evidence that Theriault told an officer his decision to cross the double-yellow line was “a bad, three-second mistake,” Sayson said the words “reveal his intention.” “The mere act of the accused going into the opposite lane… alone is enough to establish dangerous driving.” Gill disagreed, pointing to expert testimony that anyone without “overly familiar” perspective of that road would think at that time of the day, in those conditions, it was straight and flat west of 200 Street. (Gill later asked to recall the witness in order to clarify the evidence and ensure the answer wouldn’t be disregarded by the court. In making the request, he acknowledged his own error in wording the question poorly, and Dohm conceded the move was necessary to ensure fairness of the proceedings.) Gill also argued that it wasn’t proven beyond a doubt that the dump truck seen speeding and passing between Abbotsford and Campbell Valley Park was indeed Theriault’s. As well, one witness “provided testimony consistent with an unremarkable driving pattern,” he said. “The Crown is in no way able to reasonably rely on the pattern of driving prior to the valley,” Gill said. And, based on evidence regarding the typical driving pattern of motorists along that stretch of road, “there was nothing unusual about Mr. Theriault’s driving.” “It was absolutely clear that that road was not driven by 90-yearold retirees in Model-T Fords going… below the speed limit,” Gill said. Michie, referring to Weigel’s description of the crash scene, told PAN Tuesday’s proceedings were the most difficult for her so far. “This guy today, that was the most upset I’ve been,” she said. The proceedings are to resume on Oct. 7.

i from page 1 The court heard that Theriault was Delta-bound in a Sterling dump truck, and running behind schedule. Witnesses testified to seeing the dump truck “barrelling” by cars as it headed west, passing at least one other vehicle before making the fatal manoeuvre. Leland Weigel –  a Qualicum Beach resident – told the court Tuesday that he was westbound on 16 Avenue when he noticed a dump truck approaching from behind him “at a good clip.” “Around 237 (Street), it just passed me, zip, flying in excess of 80 kilometres (an hour) I was doing. It went into the oncoming lane and across a double-yellow line.” Weigel estimated the truck was travelling faster than 90 km/h, and said he saw it pass other vehicles ahead of him, also across double-yellow lines. “He just kept on going, just flying. In a real big hurry,” Weigel said. At the intersection of 200 Street, the dump truck pulled into the left-turn bay as if to head south, but instead drove straight through, Weigel said. He became emotional when describing the scene he came across shortly after, as he drove down the hill just west of the intersection. Jim Neiss “I looked to victim my left and I saw the dump truck. His front bumper was pushed all the way to the back of the (Explorer’s) seat. He had his headlights on, I could see him in the truck. I saw steam and everything coming up. “I just did the sign of the cross. There was nothing left of that truck. Sorry.” In cross-examination, Gill suggested Weigel’s memory of the events had changed over time.

That is borderline houses. criminal,” Banman said. “You created this nightmare,” Other mayors, including Abbotsford Mayor Bruce Chilliwack’s Sharon Gaetz and Black Press

Kelowna’s Walter Gray, predicted medical growers won’t stop voluntarily. “Dave’s not here, man,” quipped Burnaby Coun. Nick Volkow in a rendition of Cheech and Chong. Asked by the mayor of Mission what will be done to ensure growers shut down, Health Canada’s Todd Cain said licensees will be notified they must cease production. “Beyond that, we’re really relying on them to follow the law,” he said, drawing laughter. “They’re going to take that letter and roll it in product and they’re going to smoke it – that’s what’s going to happen,” predicted Mission Coun. Dave Hensman. He demanded to know how Ottawa justified licensing 700 legal medical-pot grows in Mission – a community of 30,000 people – and said he opposes his

municipality spending a dime to clean up the problem. “I’m not going to shut them down and you’re not going to shut them down. So dude, it’s not going to work.” Cain said privacy restrictions still prevent Ottawa from disclosing permitted grows. He said Health Canada could begin certifying legal producers within weeks and some of the expected 50 to 75 producers to be chosen nation-wide are expected to be in operation well before the official April 1 launch date of the new system. More than 100 licence applications have been received and about 40 are from B.C., most of them the Lower Mainland. Hensman said the Lower Mainland doesn’t need that many commercial growers, suggesting more be located elsewhere.

He said producers expect to offer between four and 30 different strains at different prices, some of them as low as about $3.50 or $4 a gram. “Supply and demand, once the market is established, will drive the pricing,” Cain said. Pot distribution will be done only by mail or courier, not through any pharmacies or retail outlets. In response to questions about pot being lost in the mail, Cain noted the existing federally run medical marijuana plant in Saskatchewan already ships product through a combination of courier and mail with a “good success rate.” Shipments will be sent in airtight packets of 30 grams each, limited to a maximum of 150 grams per shipment. Users who are prescribed marijuana by a doctor will be permitted to possess 150 grams or a 30-day supply, whichever is lower.

Prices in effect Sept. 19 - 23/2013 or while quantities last.

editorial

Just say ‘no’?

f a recent Peace Arch News online poll is anything to go by – and our polls, it should be added, are anything but scientific – a majority of readers, if asked at the U.S. border if they have ever smoked marijuana, would answer no. Whether that represents their actual history with the controlled substance is anyone’s guess. And whether U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers believe them is also open to conjecture. In Washington State, voters have chosen to legalize marijuana possession. There, as in Canada, marijuana use is a fact of life for many. Most people from the baby-boom generation onward (and the baby boomers are now the grandparents of our population) have had some kind of exposure to marijuana at some point in their past – even if they were resolute in refusing it. Even B.C. Premier Christy Clark, when questioned in 2012 about marijuana use said “there was a lot of that going on when I was in high school and I didn’t avoid it altogether.” It’s an answer she may want to revise before heading southward, in light of the recent experience of a White Rock woman at the border, who admitted to a reportedly zealous CBP member that she had smoked marijuana the week before. That was enough to instigate a thorough search of her truck, extended grilling of her passengers and the ultimate determination that she was “inadmissible” to the U.S. In fact, even one admission of having broken Canadian drug laws at any time would be enough for a similar ruling. Minus evidence to the contrary (a record of conviction, a voluntary admission or a pro-cannabis posting online for example), the burden of proof that you have smoked marijuana is on the CBP. But that’s scant comfort if a CBP member decides he or she doesn’t like the cut of your jib. And that seems to be the real crux of this border issue. Many who have crossed the U.S. border can attest that while they have encountered CBP members who are friendly and welcoming, even while conducting their necessary duties, there are others who seem bound and determined to hassle visitors to the fullest extent of their authority. It’s this inconsistency the CBP may wish to address, as well as a lingering perception that marijuana questions are potentially being used to further a different agenda than merely upholding the security of the border.

We also spent a little time in the Gulf Islands this summer, swimming, exploring, reading and skipping stones. Life was spent barefoot. It’s at times like this that people often muse about a “big change” in life. “Could I live here?” they ask. Sipping a bowl of coffee at 11 a.m. on a sidewalk patio I wondered: Wouldn’t it be great to live in Montreal all the time? How about Gulf Island living? Maybe buy a boat, a kayak? Learn to sculpt or paint? Write crime novels? Browsing the local real-estate listings is a common symptom of this state of mind. For most, it’s pure fantasy. A chance to briefly inhabit another life, if only in their mind. The rational, left brain is put into neutral. That’s the boring side that is only too happy to remind us that our heads are in the clouds. That we’re seeing life through a summer lens, a time when life everywhere is different. Come back to Montreal in December, it sneers, when that sidewalk patio is buried under a freshly ploughed snow. And you think the Gulf Islands are peaceful now? Try January when it’s as quiet as the interior of an abandoned mine shaft. But hey, we all need to float a little sometimes. And when September returns, and we get back to our routines, many of us wish we could just float a little longer. Who knows? Maybe, like my dad’s trick, with a little practice, it just might be possible. Chris Bryan is the editor of the BurnabyNew Westminster NewsLeader.

Paddleboarder to the rescue

New charges mean-spirited

Editor: My sister and I witnessed a random act of kindness Sunday that we thought should not go unnoticed. We were out for a walk at Crescent Beach when an old man approached us and told us of a deer that was stranded in the ocean. He told us this deer had wandered out when the tide was low and had been surrounded by the incoming tide. We tried calling the wildlife line, only to hear that there was nothing they could do. Not soon after this, we saw a young man take his paddleboard out on the water and paddle towards the deer that was now a kilometre off shore. A crowd of people watched as the paddleboarder patiently and carefully guided the deer in the right direction. The deer started to swim with the paddleboarder close behind and finally made it to shore. To this paddleboarding man: You are a hero. There were several young children and adults watching you save this deer, all of whom know this deer might not have made it without your help. So, thank you. Heather Grozier, Langley

Editor: I am very disappointed with the City of Surrey’s decision to charge low-income adults a fee of $106.38 for the previously no-cost annual recreation facilities pass. As president of a non-profit society, I work with low-income men rebuilding their bodies, minds, and spirits. Their ability to use Surrey’s recreation facilities is an important part of the recovery process. They are not in a position to pay this fee. When people come to recovery, nine times out of 10 they come with nothing. As with most nonprofit societies – particularly in the recovery industry – we struggle to keep our society in shape. Losing access to recreation centres means our clients will lose the opportunity. The four pillars of a strong and effective recovery program are abstinence and recovery first; health and fitness next; followed by employment and education; finally family and a future. Any one of these removed from the equation almost always leads to failure. The cost of operating our Health Ministry-certified facilities does not provide us the ability to increase our fee for service, even if our residents could pay. We are not able to cover these costs; neither are they. Are our public facilities in Surrey now limited to only those who can absorb such an exorbitant increase? We have seen clear evidence that a

Flip-flop taints all of council Editor: Re: Councillors lash out at city hall rethink, Sept. 12. Did Coun. Bill Lawrence get his political training in Montreal, where back-room negotiations and decision-making games have happened routinely? The relocation of White Rock council chambers to city-owned property – that would have accommodated wheelchairs and be more modern with technical equipment and the like – could have served taxpayers for the next decade. What cost-benefit analysis and RFP (request for proposals) comparison have been done? City manager Dan Bottrill confirmed extensive work has been undertaken, and contracts have been awarded for carpets, painting and electrical work. I find it disconcerting that a friend/neighbour/business colleague was apparently approached by a councillor after the July 15 decision and several council discussions on relocation, and that Lawrence is proposing rental revenue on behalf of a specific firm – Prizebox Entertainment, an IT company with no apparent online presence. Is there a behaviour pattern evolving, with Lawrence facilitating rental of the facility as a last attempt to block the relocation, with tacit support from the council allies? Where did this motion to flip-flop on a decision really come from? Frankly, the ethics and process smells, and this is worthy of critics and review. The perception on the street is tainting all of council. Pat Petrala, White Rock

White Rock boarders take to street.

Safer places to learn skill Editor: Not all children wish to join a soccer team; some just want to ride on their own and prepare themselves to race using a skateboard. Our streets are not a safe field of practice for them. Traffic accidents happen within seconds, sometimes resulting in lifelong disabilities. What chance does a kid on a skateboard have to collide with a heavy truck or a speeding car without injury? We can encourage them to skateboard in a safe environment, for example at the South Surrey Skateboard Park. When the kids are ready, let’s allow them to compete in conditions similar to the Tour de White Rock, streets secured with barriers and volunteers. And let them be sponsored, for they are our future. Genevieve Loslier, White Rock

strong recovery program combined with fitness leads to positive results. The city prides itself on being progressive with respect to its policies for the homeless and its povertyreduction plan. This policy will push more people further into poverty. This policy is mean-spirited and hurtful to many low-income residents of Surrey. Perhaps those who make decisions are fortunate enough that cost doesn’t matter. Susan Sanderson, The Realistic Success Recovery Society

Room for dogs at Sunnyside Editor: For two-plus years, I have taken my dog to Sunnyside Park, enjoying the space for my dog to run. Not wanting to jeopardize the opportunity of taking my dog to Sunnyside, I have respected the on-leash restriction, plus ensured that I picked up after my dog and others as well. I would do the same if my dog was off-leash. There is an area in the northeast corner that would be perfect for an off-leash area. It is never used by the public, and there are lots of dogs in the area that would benefit from this. All the area would need is a fence, keeping the cost to a minimum. We were never consulted about the closure to dogs at Sunnyside; the creation of this off-leash area would make it easier to abide by the rule not to have dogs in the park. Sue Berman, Surrey

Letter-writer David Danylyshyn criticizes federal support of “institutionalized racial privilege” in salmon fishing.

email:

Racial segregation unacceptable

editorial@ peacearchnews.com

An open letter to MP Russ Hiebert (South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale), and Fisheries and Oceans Canada. I received a note this week from the BC Wildlife Federation stating that Aboriginals will be doing some industrial fishing on the Fraser, and any nonAboriginals fishing will be made to move. I write to you with some concerns: 1. Aboriginal claim to “traditional” resource extraction should be done with traditional means. At no point in pre-contact history did local Aboriginals use seine gear involving nylon nets, hydraulic winches, and powerboats. That they have often been allowed to do so in the past makes mock of their supposed reverence for their traditions and the environment. They should not be allowed to use them now. 2. To the degree that there is a pink-salmon surplus to

be utilized, it should be harvested by licensed sport and commercial fishermen, irrespective of race. Aboriginals of course should be free to exploit their traditional fishery, using traditional technology. 3. I am concerned that non-Aboriginal fishermen are racially relegated to less-productive, and possibly more dangerous areas – “moving into the steep banks, holes and tributaries” – to fish. Nice, I suppose, that Aboriginals “extend their gratitude for… consideration” during this time. Doubtless those who sat at the front of the bus “extended their gratitude” to those forced by law to sit at the back. This Fisheries and Oceans Canada event reeks of institutionalized racial privilege, and racial segregation, and it is repellent. David Danylyshyn, Surrey

time, she woke up in a hospital and claimed she was assaulted. When challenged by her parole officer, Pollard changed her story, admitting to meeting friends and drinking alcohol, contrary to her conditions. She said she blacked out from excessive drinking and woke up in another part of the city smoking crack cocaine, with people she didn’t know. Pollard said she got into a fight, landing her in hospital. In an Aug. 27 written decision, the parole board revoked Pollard’s release over concern with her relapse into alcohol use, despite taking programs in prison. The board was also troubled by her “deception and outright lying� about the situation. Pollard, now 21, is entitled to another statutory release next spring.

Officials said the fire did not appear suspicious but are continuing to probe the cause.

Motorcycle kills pedestrian A Surrey high school student was killed and two others seriously injured when a motorcycle hit them when they were crossing the street near their high school Wednesday. Police and paramedics were called just before 11:30 a.m. to 128 Street and 68 Avenue. All three students and the motorcyclist were unconscious when police arrived on scene. One of the students and the motorcycle driver were flown by air ambulance to Royal Columbian Hospital. The student subsequently passed away. The two other girls were driven by ambulance to an area hospital. As of Peace Arch News press deadline Wednesday afternoon, police said the cause of the crash remained under investigation.

Emergency crews respond to a crash in which three girls were struck.

Train whistles sparked complaints i from page 1 before to sound the whistles at every pedestrian crossing along the waterfront. The order was given in the wake of an incident on the tracks in Ocean Park involving a rail brush cutter. The result prompted numerous complaints from area residents. The whistling-restriction rule does not prevent a train engi-

neer from sounding the whistle any time it’s felt there is a threat to safety, nor does it override guidelines mandating that the train’s engine bell ring continuously through the White Rock area. Engineers must also emit a succession of short sounds as a warning upon entering and leaving the waterfront. Transport Canada’s Sara John-

ston said the agency’s review of the latest White Rock fatality determined that the operation of the train involved and signage at the crossing are “in compliance with the Railway Safety Act and associated rules.” City officials were not available to comment on the request by Peace Arch News deadline Wednesday afternoon.

Technology has changed the language in many ways

The devolution of English E nglish? Who needs that? I’m never going to England! Well, obviously, TV’s iconic spokesman of a generation, Homer Simpson, doesn’t think English is necessary and neither does most of the Western world for that matter. What has become of the English April Lewis language the way we were taught? Surely, if it is good enough for Her Majesty, it is good enough for us. I understand cursive writing has gone the way of the dodo bird, what with the onslaught of modern electronic communication devices which only require a thumb and some fingers furtively searching for a few keys. No pen or writing instrument required. The rich and beautiful English language has been reduced to the banal in the form of an abbreviated 140 characters. We are tweeting our spoken and written language into oblivion. What would William Shakespeare and Charles Dickens have made of this bastardization of our linguistic expression?

About 350 people took part in the annual Terry Fox Run at Fraser Heights Recreation Centre in Surrey on Sept. 15. The event raised more than $7,000.

Strong turnout for Terry Fox Run Not even the fog could dampen the spirit or success of the 33rd annual South Surrey White Rock Terry Fox Run Sunday. Hosted by the Rotary Club of White Rock, more than 200 participants laced up and walked or ran their way though South Surrey Athletic Park, raising more than $13,000 for the Terry Fox Foundation. Local participants included a

24-member team from Hugh and McKinnon Realty Ltd. and a 14-member team from the Gordon Kring family. Several cancer survivors donned special red shirts and participated in the event as ‘Terry’s Team.’ Along with South Surrey/White Rock, other communities that held a Terry Fox Run event included Fraser Heights and Cloverdale.

ness and grief. Boutillier donated Beecher Place for the function after she won the an evening at the venue in a silent auction she attended last year. “I decided right then and there to pay it forward and use the venue certificate to host a fundraiser within the year to benefit the White Rock South Surrey Hospice Society,” Boutillier said in a release.

1912 vehicle featured in Cloverdale

SWING • LATIN • BALLROOM

Vintage electric car on display Visitors to Cloverdale Station last weekend were treated to a tantalizing image of the past, thanks to a special guest attraction, a well-appointed 1912 Detroit Electric car. In the words of one admirer, it was a chance for Surreyites to imagine a time when it was possible to drive your electric car to a local train station and ride electric commuter rail all the way to Chilliwack. The car, owned by the Vancouver Electric Vehicle Association, is a feature exhibit at the Stave Falls BC Hydro Powerhouse Museum and was temporarily on view in Cloverdale recently. The electric car was built the same year as the Fraser Valley Heritage Railway Society’s restored heritage Interurban car 1225, which has now welcomed its 4,000th passenger since the project began operations in June. – Jennifer Lang

Scavenger hunt draws crowd More than 150 people turned out for this month’s scavenger race through downtown Cloverdale, hosted by the Clova Cinema. The Sept. 1 event raised more than $1,000 Sept. 1 to help the family-owned theatre switch to a digital projection system. Teams sped around picking up clues from participating businesses in the first-ever Amazing Race: Cloverdale. There was even a celebrity or two: B.C. actor Lochlyn Munro, plus greeter emeritus Doris Burghardt, who co-owns the Clova, both welcomed patrons.

Volunteers aid fish hatchery

Helping boost salmon stocks J.R. Rardon Black Press

BEAVER COVE— Christmas came early in a remote region of North Vancouver Island. But then, it always does when the volunteers of the Kokish River Fish Hatchery kick off their annual brood stock collection of salmon. The core group of volunteers, many of whom have been aiding salmon enhancement on the Kokish since the hatchery was established near Port McNeill in the mid1980s are retired or semi-retired. But they were as giddy as children finding gifts under the tree when they hauled a mix of pinks, coho, chum and sockeye from a pool in the river and transported them to tanks at the nearby hatchery last week. “That was good; we did a good haul,” Port McNeill’s Ed Bennett said to his mates as they tipped a pot of coffee in the hatchery office after sorting the fish by species into holding tanks. “Boy, those chums are big, eh?” The early-September collection kicks off the hatchery’s season, which will run until next spring when new smolts are i see page 30

Work at hatchery will go until December i from page 29 released back into the stream to begin their journey to the sea and resume the cycle. While some of coastal B.C.’s hatcheries are staffed with paid professionals, the Kokish Hatchery is one of the many smaller facilities dotting Vancouver Island entirely manned by volunteers. Most of these hatcheries were created in the early to mid-’80s, following the establishment of the Canadian Salmonid Enhancement Program by Fisheries and Oceans Canada. “Everybody’s a volunteer; nobody’s paid,” said Grant Anderson of the Marble River Hatchery, located between Port Alice and Port McNeill off Highway 30. “It makes a good comradeship. We have lots of people from different walks of life, and each of them brings their own talents.” Last week’s fish collection on the Kokish drew nearly a dozen volunteers, who donned chest waders and strode around the pool in the river while unspooling a 100-foot seine net from an inflatable raft. They included the grizzled regulars, like Bennett, Ken Coleman, Pete Rice, John Foster and Ken Stoner, as well as first-timer Dan Gachter, who was joined by a pair of friends visiting from the Lower Mainland. “I’m in awe of the people who do this,” said Mace Vandenakker of White Rock, who travelled with his wife Elspeth to visit the Gachter family and tagged along to don waders and lend a hand. “I have to take my hat off to these people.” A pair of recent secondary school grads with an interest in wildlife biology, Michael Whitworth and Ben Jorgenson rounded out the team and provided a youthful counterpoint to the team. In two sets of the net, this group collected more than 100 salmon – including a coho with a clipped adipose fin indicating it originated from the hatchery. Most of the fish were transferred to a tank mounted on the back of a heavy-duty pickup, though several were left in the river to fend for themselves. “We left a coho with seal bites, and we threw back a number of trout,” said Bennett. The salmon will be held in tanks at the

hatchery until they’re ready to spawn. The hatchery crew will then harvest the eggs and sperm and transfer them to an incubation tank for the winter. Next spring, local schoolchildren will be invited to take part as the new smolts are released into the very pool from which their parents were taken. “We’ll keep picking (fish) through the fall,” said Coleman, who entered the counts into a log book. “This and the egg collection will go from now until almost Christmas. We’ll be working from now through June.”

Location and beautiful homes combine at Verve By Kerry Vital

For people starting out the housing market, location and value are tops on the list of things you’re looking for. Porte Development is fulfilling both of these wishes with Verve, its condominium development in Surrey’s vibrant City Centre. “The location is amazing, just a six-minute walk from King George SkyTrain� says Jeanette Chaput, director of marketing and sales for Porte. “Now is a great time to buy.�

The second building, Social, is launching on Sept. 21. The first building has already had a great response. “We’re almost sold out of the first building,� Chaput says,� and construction is moving along really quickly.� There will eventually be a third building at Verve as well. Each building will be four storeys, with 66 suites each ranging from 540 to over 1,000 square feet in a range of one- and two-bedroom plans. There are some three-bedroom plans depending on the building.

“There are a lot of things that people love at Verve,� says Chaput. “There are balconies on every home, and tons of closet and storage space.� With nine-foot ceilings (11 feet on the top floor!) and open layouts, the homes at Verve feel spacious and inviting. The kitchens are particularly impressive, with polished quartz countertops, stainless-steel appliances and CONTINUED POQ

Surrey’s City Centre is a vibrant, thriving area with plenty of amenities, from transit via SkyTrain to shopping and dining at Central City shopping centre. You’ll also ďŹ nd a library, middle right, and the Surrey campus of Simon Fraser University, bottom right.

Living the good life in Surrey’s City Centre By Kerry Vital

In recent years, Surrey’s City Centre area has been growing and becoming one of the most popular areas in the Lower Mainland. With transit, shopping, dining, education and amazing homes all in the neighbourhood, it’s easy to see why City Centre is tops on many homebuyers’ lists. Among the developers that have been building in the area are Concord Pacific and Porte Development, who are both building condominum projects that have already proven popular with buyers.

City Centre’s easy access to the rest of Metro Vancouver is a large part of why it’s a perfect place to live. With SkyTrain right on your doorstep, you can take part in the downtown Vancouver nightlife or commute to work without having to deal with the hassles of driving. Perhaps you’re just looking for a nice place for a run or a picnic. Surrey is known as the “City of Parks�, so you will never need to go far to find a quiet spot. Tom Binnie Park is the home of the B.C. Lions practice facility, and also includes a playground, turf field and outdoor basketball courts, as well as the Chuck Bailey Recreation Centre. It holds a full-court gym and has a focus on youth and family. Surrey’s Holland Park is right beside Central City shopping centre, and includes art, water fountains and trails perfect for your every need, from running to cycling. It hosts a variety of events all year, including the annual Fusion Festival and Movies under the Stars. Another park in the area is the Whalley

Athletic Park, which hosts the Whalley Little League, and also includes batting cages, soccer fields, a playground and walking paths. A city is nothing without its culture and architecture, and City Centre is no different. City Centre is just blocks away from the Surrey Art Gallery, which includes a large contemporary art collection. The gallery prides itself on featuring artwork from local, national and international artists, and also hosts lectures, workshops and courses on art. But art in Surrey City Centre is not just inside the Art Gallery. Several public art installations are located throughout the area, including several in Holland Park and the City Centre Library. That library is located near Surrey’s new City Hall. It includes a cafe, several meeting spaces, a computer learning centre, a teen lounge and gaming room, and more reading materials than you could ever hope to finish, in a variety of languages. You’ll also find the Surrey campus of Simon Fraser University in City Centre, along with

elementary and secondary schools. Shoppers won’t have to wander far to get some retail therapy, since Central City shopping centre is right on King George Boulevard. With over 130 shops, restaurants and services, Central City has something for everyone. There are also a variety of speciality shops and restaurants in the area.

A lot of things to love at Porte Development’s Verve CONTINUED FROM p31

contemporary cabinetry with high-gloss upper cabinets and warm wood lowers. Your space is lit with under-cabinet valence lighting, and every floorplan includes a convenient touch such as a wine rack or a built-in work station, depending on the home. Quartz countertops are also featured in the ensuite, with a deep soaker tub, porcelain tile floors and designer lighting. Oversized shower stalls with frameless glass doors are included in most two-bedroom homes. Verve is perfectly located to take advantage of all of the amenities City Centre has to offer, including transit, shopping, dining and recreation. You’re just minutes from the SkyTrain and Central City shopping centre, as well as the Surrey campus of Simon Fraser University, the new Surrey City Hall, library and performing arts centre, among other highlights. “Porte is a reputable developer ... who believes in Surrey,” Chaput says. “We believe in the area and have been building here for a long time.” However, you might not want to leave Verve at all. You’ll find a full-sized fitness centre and yoga studio and a guest suite for your overnight visitors, as well as Club Red. This exclusive space for Verve residents includes a lounge, kitchen/bar area that opens onto a patio with a barbecue, a pool table, flatscreen TV and darts area, as well as a meeting room. Currently Porte is showcasing its Flexible Deposit Program. If you aren’t able to come up with a large deposit today, you are able to build up your downpayment while your home itself is being built. “This way you can secure the home you want and build the downpayment as you go,” Chaput says. “The second building will be ready next October, so you have a year to save.” Porte is also offering a limited-time promotion over the grand opening weekend of Social. Buyers who purchase on Sept. 21 and 22 will receive three years of strata fees on Porte, which is a great incentive to buy. Homes at Verve start at $169,900. For more information, visit www. porte.ca/verve, call 604-588-3783 or visit the sales centre at 10119 Whalley Boulevard, open daily (except Fridays) between noon and 5 p.m.

MLA warns against opening up alcohol sales

Liquor reform questioned

Celebrate Fall Fair

Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA –  The B.C. government’s consultation on liquor reform has begun with a debate about allowing alcoholic beverage sales in grocery stores. “ Wa s h i n g ton state is the model I favour,” a Lower Mainland resident wrote Monday on the B.C. government’s John Yap new consultaMLA tion website. “No government involvement in retailing – period. Just enforce the legal drinking age.” The B.C. government’s point man on liquor reform, Richmond-Steveston MLA John Yap, posted his own comments on the subject Monday. Yap warned that while opening up alcohol sales is a popular suggestion, “it certainly isn’t as straightforward as it may seem.” Yap noted that beer, wine and spirits are already sold in rural grocery stores that are licensed because their service area isn’t big enough to warrant a government retail store. In urban areas, he questioned whether alcoholic

Private liquor store in Vancouver: B.C. has broadened the retail base, but grocery stores are licensed only in rural locations. beverages should be sold from convenience stores and gas stations, larger grocery stores, or big-box retailers. “When this topic comes up in my meetings with health, safety and law-and-order advocates, the question will surely become that already we see 30 per cent of late-night attendees at a typical B.C. emergency department report alcohol consumption in the six hours prior to their injury or illness,” Yap said. “If we make it more available for the sake of convenience, will we see rates like this rise?” The government is inviting public comments until Oct. 31 at the website, www.gov.bc.ca/ liquorpolicyreview

The site also lists submissions from health care, police and alcoholic beverage industry representatives. The current review continues a remake of B.C. liquor policy that began in 2002, when cold beer and wine stores were allowed to sell spirits, and a 10-year moratorium on new private store licences was lifted. When the consultation was launched in August, Yap said licenses for serving craft beer or local wine at farmers’ markets would be considered. Pubs also want to allow underaged children in with their parents for lunch, putting them on a level playing field with licensed restaurants.

Mayors say unfair MMBC offer means higher costs or worse service

Cities upset with recycling agency Jeff Nagel Black Press

Cities across B.C. are crying foul over the rollout of a new recycling agency that the provincial government has put in charge of blue-box pickup. And Metro Vancouver mayors want B.C. Environment Minister Mary Polak to intervene to keep their curbside recycling programs from being thrown into chaos from the changes coming next year. Multi-Material BC (MMBC), an industry stewardship group made up of major retailers and producers, is set to take responsibility for collecting and recycling packaging of all sorts by next May as a result of new provincial regulations. It has promised to let Derek Corrigan interested municipalities Burnaby mayor continue to run their own recycling operations by acting as contractor, if that’s what they prefer. But the cities say the prices offered by MMBC are far too low to cover their costs and that other terms are unreasonable, starting with the take-it-or-leave-it signing deadline of Sept. 16. “I’ve never seen a contract come through as one-sided as what they’ve done with this,” Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan said. “The idea you’re going to come in and replace our programs and take over recycling is out of line – most municipalities are really concerned about that.” Cities fear they’ll lose money if they continue providing the service their residents expect under the pricing structure MMBC has offered

Many city councils are upset with a new company in charge of curbside blue-box pickup. for recyclables. They can opt to decline a contract and MMBC will contract recycling pick up out as it sees fit, but mayors fear that may be at reduced service levels, with public anger directed to city hall. With those choices unappealing, many cities are expected to instead pick a third option for now that lets them keep running the blue-box recycling system without compensation from MMBC. Keeping the status quo is less than ideal, Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie said, because the industries responsible, not cities, are supposed

to pay the costs to collect and recycle packaging under the government’s plan. Effectively, their residents will pay twice – once on their property taxes and again at stores because retailers will build their costs of supporting MMBC into prices. Both mayors predict many cities will reject the deal as offered now and demand action from provincial government ministers at next week’s Union of B.C. Municipalities convention, which opens on the day of MMBC’s deadline. i see page 44

Newspapers eye own system It’s not just cities resisting the new recycling system for packaging coming to B.C. The newspaper industry – which is supposed to be part of the expanded blue-box system – is also at odds with MMBC after a falling out last year over how they would pay their share of the costs of collecting old newspapers and flyers. Newspapers Canada president John Hinds said the newspaper firms originally intended to make their contribution through in-kind advertising. But he said MMBC has since demanded they pay 75 per cent in cash – potentially draining $6 million a year from the print newspaper industry, which has already reduced staff to cut costs in the current economic environment. Newspapers Canada represents the three main publishing groups – community newspaper publishers Black Press (owner of Peace Arch News) and Glacier Media, as well as Postmedia, owner of the Vancouver Sun and The Province. Hinds said the entire industry pulled out of MMBC last year and is re-evaluating its options, which could include having newspaper carriers take back newsprint for recycling, or hiring other contractors to create a new collection or depot system. “Our real option is to do our own system,” Hinds said. “We have a very sophisticated one-way delivery i see page 44

MMBC managing director Allen Langdon rejects claims the proposed contracts short-change cities on collection costs, adding programs in 23 cities were reviewed to determine fair pricing. “We think those costs, based on our research, provide for compensation for an efficient and effective system,” Langdon said. He said cities that don’t like how the system unfolds can terminate their contracts without penalty on six months notice, or opt for dispute resolution. Langdon also defended the short notice for cities to sign up, saying timelines are tight to identify collectors and line up processors in time for a May 19 launch. The Vancouver-based Centre For Civic Governance has warned recycling could backslide under the new model.

Newspaper groups could run parallel systems MMBC and both cities and publishers. “We have to recognize that some of this is a negotiation,” Polak said. “We’re not blind to the concerns that are being

expressed. We’ve heard them and we’re certainly urging MMBC to work with those parties to try to address the concerns they have.” Unlike existing stewardship programs, the packaging and

printed paper industries are much more diverse, she said, making the new system more complex. MMBC aims to raise overall recycling rates in B.C. from 53 per cent to 75 per cent.

i from page 43 system that nearly goes to every house in B.C.” He said MMBC has sought to shift costs to newspaper firms because it’s “very much biased” in favour of huge retailers like Walmart and Loblaw and other multinational producers of packaged goods that are solely interested in minimizing their outlay, not best environmental practices for B.C. Hinds said newspaper publishing representatives continue talks with MMBC while lobbying the province. A splintering of the system with newspaper firms trying to retrieve newsprint could have wider implications, because newspaper is among the more profitable materials to recycle, unlike some other packaging materials. The estimated cost of MMBC’s system is $110 million but Hinds warns that could run higher, especially if it leads to inefficient parallel systems being run by MMBC, some cities and perhaps newspaper groups. “The sad part about this is you’re going to recreate a whole new system,” Hinds said. “You’re going to dismantle a system that works. You’re not going to save the taxpayer any money. And you’re going to spend $100 million in industry money that’s going to be taken out of the pockets of consumers. And at the end of the day, you’re not going to move the marker one bit on environmental goals.” Environment Minister Mary Polak said she’s watching to see how talks unfold between

But media and public observers haven’t witnessed actual decision making since 2008, when the province swept away the old board of elected mayors and councillors and a board of unelected professional appointees took over. Three of the nine directors are replaced each year and a screening panel is deliberating on which of more than 100 candidates will be short-listed. The mayors’ council appoints three new directors from the short list each fall. The province last year offered to create two more seats on the TransLink board for the chair and vice-chair of the mayors’ council. But that was rejected by most mayors, who noted the board meetings would still be in camera and the two elected reps would be muzzled from reporting back publicly on board deliberations.

Distracted drivers campaign focus David Hunter Garden Centers Jeff Nagel Black Press

Police and ICBC have launched a month-long campaign to deter distracted driving, the third leading cause of fatal car crashes in the province after speed and impaired

driving. In the Lower Mainland, driver distraction is blamed as a factor in 31 deaths a year and, provincewide, in 91 fatalities. Transportation ministry officials estimate drivers are four

times likelier to crash when talking on a hand-held phone while driving and 23 times more likely to be in a crash if texting. Enforcement by officers will be stepped up throughout September, according to police.

Semiahmoo Arts event set to hit White Rock Sept. 28-29

Local artists primed to paint the town Alex Browne Arts Reporter

Erin Cebula, Global BC

here’s no surer way of raising the profile of the arts in a community than placing practitioners squarely in the public eye. That’s the principle behind Paint The Town, Semiahmoo Arts’ new event celebrating Canada Culture Days, which will hit the streets of White Rock, Sept. 28-29. On the Saturday, passersby will be able to observe local visual artists painting ‘plein air’ in various locations in the uptown area of the city, enjoying and reflecting the sights and sounds around them. On the Sunday, the works produced will be exhibited for sale at the Semiahmoo Arts Building next to Centennial Arena (14600 North Bluff Rd.) Alex Browne photos And the timing couldn’t Judy Jordison, above, will be one be better, according to the of the local artists participating in organization’s new executive Semiahmoo Arts’ Paint The Town director, Mary Brunet. competitive plein-air painting “It fits right in the middle of the event Sept. 28 in uptown White White Rock Festival of the Arts,” Rock.

but families can register for $25, regardless of the size of the family or age of the children. This rate applies to immediate members of the family – parents and their children. Families will paint in the same location, with each person creating an individual painting. School groups who register will pay $5 per person, for both students and teachers. As with families, group members will be assigned the same location, and

each person will individually create a work. Special locations will be chosen that can accommodate families and school groups. Among local artists giving a preview of plein-air painting near White Rock Elementary recently to promote the event were Carolynn Doan, Judy Jordison and Toni Williams. They said they were looking forward to demonstrating what

they do in a more-public-thanusual setting. “It’ll be so much fun, like when you go to paint in France,” said Doan. “It’s marvelous to paint outside – you feel like you’re part of the Impressionist movement. You begin to understand the challenges they had; and they didn’t have the fluid paints we have now, just heavy oils they had to move around and try to catch the light.” Jordison said she is a frequent participant in similar events, including the Qualicum Beach Grand Prix of Art. “They have artists everywhere in the city, and all the people in town will go place to place to see what they’re doing,” she said, adding that she hopes it’s an idea that gathers momentum in White Rock. “It takes a while to get something like this going.” Interaction with passersby will be all part of the fun for the artists, Williams said. “I imagine it’ll be half painting and half talking to the people,” she said. Jordison said it’s also a good, non-intimidating way to promote sales. “People are interested in a painting they see happening in front of their eyes,” she said. “Most people don’t go to galleries and talk to artists there. This is a chance for them to get something little they don’t have to go to an opening for.” Plein-air painting – even without the competitive angle – ought become a more familiar sight in White Rock, the artists agreed. “I think it would be really nice if we did this on a more regular basis, and made it a destination to rendezvous every month,” said Doan. “It’s so much fun getting together – and it does get people thinking about art.” Those interested in participating should contact info@ semiahmooarts.com or call 604536-8333 for registration forms.

FOCUS ON SENIORS FORUM

Internationational Artist Day events kick off Oct. 25

Gala volunteers to wear art Alex Browne Arts Reporter

The art won’t just be on the walls at the upcoming International Artist Day Festival in White Rock, according to IAD founder Chris MacClure. Festival volunteers and artists attending the Oct. 25 gala at the White Rock Community Centre and other festival events that weekend will be wearing aprons transformed into “works” of art at a painting party held Sept. 22 at the South Surrey studio of artist David Patterson. Festival hostess Jane Baldwin, White Rock Mayor Wayne Bald-

win, gala MC Mark Donnelly and participating IAD artists MacClure, Brent Heighton, Jef Morlan, Dave Patterson and Marilyn Hurst will be among those exercising their creativity – and “splashing some paint around” – to add colour to the black aprons at the IAD Festival committee event. Tickets are still available for the gala, launch of the first full IAD Festival in White Rock. A select group of some 17 noted artists – including MacClure, Patterson, Alan Wylie, Raymond Chow, Brent Heighton, Vance Theoret, Dan F. Gray and Richard Tetrault – will be present to show

their art and discuss their work at the event, which will also include a performance by the Juno Awardwinning Jodi Proznick Trio. Tickets ($150 each) include a $100 voucher to be put toward purchase of any art featured in the festival, including a show of 12-x-12-inch canvases submitted by artists from across B.C. The first 75 tickets sold will also include admission to an intimate after-hours concert by the trio the same evening at White Rock’s Blue Frog Studio. To order tickets, contact White Rock Leisure Services at 604-5412199 (Ext. 0).

Sarindar Dhaliwal to showcase work and present talk on Sept. 21

Artist to launch new show at Surrey Art Gallery Alex Browne Arts Reporter

Sarindar Dhaliwal, one of Canada’s most accomplished South Asian artists, will launch a new show of her work at Surrey Art Gallery with an illustrated talk Saturday (Sept. 21) at 6:30 p.m. The Toronto-based artist’s mixedmedia pieces are a meditation on culture and identity, and how the remembered past can be reshaped and altered by experiences in a new, adopted, homeland. The pieces, on view until Dec. 15, interpret elements of Dhaliwal’s history from memories of her

Indian birthplace to Britain, where she was raised and educated, and Canada, where she has lived and worked for almost 30 years. The complexities of the partition between India and Pakistan are symbolized by a map of the two countries formed out of images of marigold flowers that combine in intense, fiery colour. The mingled happiness and fears of childhood can be found in Dhaliwal’s colour pencil collections and huge, hand-made fairy tale books, while the significance of sport is referenced again and again in pieces such as a delicately

embroidered cricket leg pad framed inside an ornate marble window. In her talk, Dhaliwal will discuss her experiences living in all three countries, the legacies of partition – that are still being expressed in her art – and her artistic practice. The autobiographical elements of her work will be related to the “dissonance” she experienced in childhood, as the resonance of a distant past collided with the realities of an immigrant present. Dhaliwal will also discuss her interest in notions of life after death as represented by the ‘akashic library,’ an ethereal collection of

life knowledge – and the ways in which it relates to her most recent body of work, which examines the cartographer who was given the responsibility of dividing historic India to create the nation of Pakistan in 1947. Opening reception for the free exhibition – which opens simultaneously with Figuring Ground, Sylvia Grace Borda and Jeremy Herndl’s examination of the evolving landscape of Surrey and the region – will be held at 7:30 p.m. following Dhaliwal’s talk. The gallery is located at 13750 88 Ave. For more, call 604-501-5566.

Peninsula filmmakers take on festival circuit

Short film, big plans Sarah Massah Staff Reporter

Peninsula filmmakers Brandon and Jordan Willetts are taking their short film, Mayfly, to new heights. The Peninsula born-and-raised duo were accepted into the Short Film Corner at France’s prestigious Cannes Film Festival in May and are now moving on to the Raindance Film Festival in London, where they will play their film as part of the Fleeting Fictions Program on Oct. 4. Locally, the film will screen at the Vancouver International Film Festival on Oct. 3 and 10 as part of the Objects of Desire short film program, which falls under the Canadian Images competition category. Later in November, the film will be screened for the Miami Short Film Festival. “We just kind of blanket sent it to everyone. So we got a few rejection letters,” Brandon, 26, said. “Then, we saw the (first acceptance) letter and we said, ‘Wow this looks like a pretty fancy rejection letter.’” For the brothers, having their film playing in three different countries on

two continents is an accomplishment they are proud of, but both agreed the cherry on top was Raindance, where their favourite director and producer, Christopher Nolan, debuted his first box-office hit, Memento, in 2001. “We’re kind of trying to follow in his footsteps,” Jordan, 24, said. “The great thing about this whole snowball effect is that we get to add the festivals to our press kit. “The next festival, we’ll have all these credentials and recognition backing us.” And unlike Cannes, the brothers’ film will be showcased on the big screen as part of a block of four or five independent films, meaning more exposure, as well as the chance to win in their category. “In Cannes, we weren’t in competition. So this will really be our first festival experience where lots of people will be watching the film,” Brandon said. “You hear from your family and friends that the movie is good, but it’s nice to hear from someone from the outside.” For more information and updates, visit www.facebook.com/mayfly2013

BOOK LAUNCH By local Surrey author RB Herath RB Herath is an author, poet, dramatist, and a peace activist. In Canada, he served as a member of the BC Citizens’ Assembly on Electoral Reform and as a board member of several peace and democracy organizations. Before immigrating to Canada, he founded and led a democratic, centrist party in his country of origin, Sri Lanka. His other works include Real Power to the People: A Novel Approach to Electoral Reform in British Columbia (University Press of America, 2007) and Sri Lankan Ethnic Crisis: Towards a Resolution (Trafford, 2002). “A New Beginning for Humankind: A Recipe for Lasting Peace on Earth” is Herath’s new book. It demonstrates that the world is gearing up for the next world war - to be fought with nuclear weapons - and even the United Nations seem ill-equipped to meet the challenge. It then proposes a novel, revolutionary approach to permanent global peace, empowering ordinary people everywhere to take center stage. The book delivers a strong warning that if we do not act soon, it may be too late. This book is a must read for anyone interested in building a world of lasting peace!

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Local athletes saddened to see diamond sports left out of Olympics again

Ball players vow to ‘keep fighting’ Nick Greenizan

G

Sports Reporter

regg Timm was disappointed but not surprised earlier this month, when it was announced that softball and baseball had been left off the Olympic roster for the 2020 and 2024 Summer Games. The two sports, which are packaged together for Olympic purposes, were, after all, up against stiff competition for inclusion into the Games. Wrestling, which was knocked from the list of sports seven months ago despite a centuriesold tradition in the Olympics, was the heavy favourite to reclaim its spot, and easily defeated baseball/softball and squash by securing 49 of 97 first-round Greg Timm votes during an International Olympic Committee vote last week. Baseball and softball received 26 votes, and squash 22. Only one spot for the Toykohosted 2020 Games was available. The 2024 Olympics have not yet been awarded to a host city. After this month’s vote to reinstate wrestling, IOC officials admitted eliminating the sport in the first place was a mistake. “It was pretty clear to us going into the vote that the result was going to in favour of wrestling,” said Timm, president of the White Rock Renegades, one of the country’s top youth fastpitch programs, which has sent a handful of players to the Canadian national team over the years. Despite the odds being against reinstatement from the beginning, White Rock Renegades alum Sara Groenewegen – about to begin her freshman season at the University of Minnesota – was still saddened by the result. “I definitely thought we had

The vote last month to keep softball out of the 2020 Summer Games dashed the Olympic hopes of Surrey and White Rock’s Sara Hopwood, Jocelyn Cater, Sara Groenewegen, Larissa Franklin and Kelsey Haberl, all of whom were members of the Canadian national women’s fastpitch team this summer. a chance,” said the Elgin Park Secondary grad, who spent much of the summer with Canada’s national team.

“And as much as it hurts that my chance of becoming an Olympian was shot… we need to keep fighting as hard as we can, and

keep supporting the (two) sports for the next generation.” Softball and baseball were first introduced as Olympic sports

in 1996, and was voted out in 2005; they were last played at the Beijing-hosted Olympics in 2008. “Clearly, they made a mistake with softball and baseball in 2005, and it’s been a long road – and it will continue to be a long road – to get that unravelled,” Timm continued. Simon Fraser University softball coach Mike Renney – who coached Canadian teams at the 1996, 2000 and 2004 Olympics – was, like Timm, unsurprised at the vote, adding that wrestling deserved the spot as much as any other sport. “Obviously, we’re disappointed… We just got caught in a political tug of war,” he said. “If anything, wrestling’s an iconic Olympic sport. If it came down to it, I would have probably voted for wrestling, too.” On the men’s baseball side, White Rock native Leon Boyd was similarly disappointed to hear of the diamond sports’ failed bid for reinstatement. Boyd, a duel CanadianDutch citizen, pitched for the Netherlands in 2008 in Beijing. “I figured it would be close between them and wrestling because of wrestling’s rich Olympic history,” said Boyd, 30, from Holland, where he was wrapping up his season in the Dutch pro baseball league. Boyd, a former White Rock Triton, said the feeling amongst his teammates was one of sadness, especially among the younger players, who may have had a chance to compete at the 2020 Olympics. “We had just played our last game of the year and a bunch of us were watching the live feed of the IOC decision process,” he said. “It was pretty disappointing to hear the results, not for me to have another chance, but for both sports in general. This will affect the youth players with (Olympic) aspirations.” i see page 61

Who chooses the successful grant applications? City Council has established a City Grants Evaluation Committee, consisting of representatives from the community, along with two city staff members, to review all applications and make recommendations on grant payment priorities. The final decision on all grant applications is made by City Council.

Kwantlen soccer teams lose for second week in row

Eagles seeking first wins on pitch Rick Kupchuk Black Press

After playing their first two home games of the PACWEST (Pacific Western Athletic Association) soccer season, the Kwantlen Eagles are still looking for their first victory. For the second consecutive week, both the men’s and women’s ❝If we teams from continue Kwantlen improving Polytechnic and working University as hard as we earned a have, our time loss and a from last is coming.❞ tie weekend’s action at Srdjan Djekanovic Newton AthKwantlen soccer letic Park. The women played to a scoreless tie Saturday against the UBC-Okanagan Heat, then fell 2-1 to the Thompson Rivers University (TRU) Wolfpack on Sunday. The men also tied the Heat 0-0 Saturday, and were shutout 2-0 by Thompson Rivers Sunday. Kevin Taheri was a standout in goal for Kwantlen Saturday, making several outstanding saves late in the game to keep the game scoreless. The Eagles also had their chance to score, but came up empty.

Kwantlen Eagle Kathleen Gratz collides with Thompson Rivers University goalie Emily Edmundson during a women’s soccer game at Newton Athletic Park Sept. 15. “Today we saw two different halves and performances by our Kwantlen team,” said head coach Srdjan Djekanovic. “We played some excellent soccer in the later part of the match and we were very unlucky not to walk away with

a win.” It was a similar story Sunday, with the Eagles generating offensive chances only to fail to score. The Wolfpack got one early in the game and another in the last 10 minutes for the win.

“Our young Kwantlen team took on a very physical TRU team today and except for a couple of errors which unfortunately cost us goals on the day, we were a team that carried the play,” said Djekanovic. “If we continue improving and working as hard as we have, our time is coming and we will be in a (strong) position come the end of the season.” Surrey’s Sukhleen Gill was credited with the shutout in the scoreless tie in Saturday’s women’s game. The Eagles had to play from behind in Sunday’s contest, falling behind 2-0 in the first half hour. Shanay Sangha and Kathleen Gratz had excellent chances to score Kwantlen’s first goal of the weekend, but the Eagles had to wait until Norma Sheane tallied to pull to within one. The loss dropped Kwantlen’s record to 0-2-2 (won-tiedloss), the same record as the men. Both teams are on the road next weekend, playing in Nanaimo against the Vancouver Island University Mariners on Saturday, then taking on the Capilano University Blue Sunday in North Vancouver.

Players wanted Teams in the South Surrey-White Rock Thunder fastpitch organization are still seeking a few more players for the 2014 season. The Thunderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s squirtdivision team (U12) is still short a few players, while the Thunder â&#x20AC;&#x2122;98 squad is still on the lookout for a pitcher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the U12 (squirt) age group previous softball or baseball experience is preferred

but it is not necessarily a priority,â&#x20AC;? said Squirtdivision coach Tracy Bell. The softball season doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t begin until April, but teams will begin practising later this fall at indoor training facilities. For more, email Bell at tracy@labellefleur.com or call 778-999-6803. For info on the Thunder, visit www. thunderfastpitch.ca

uestion: To avoid the costs of probate, my mother and father put everything in joint tenancy with a right of survivorship and made wills giving everything to each other, and also that if the one predeceased the other their estate was to bbe di divided id d equally between me and my three sisters. My father died and a year or two later my mother fell for a guy and married him. Although my mother has not changed her will, my sisters are worried because they think my momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new husband will automatically get all her estate. Is his true?

After March 31, 2014 if she dies, her new husband will have to prove that your mother should have provided for him in order to get money from her estate.

OBITUARIES

Elsie Elizabeth (Jones) Bonar July 12, 1924 – August 27, 2013

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Elsie, beloved mother, to Colleen (Burke), Robert (Michyo), Gayle (Archie) and Thomas (Diana), grandmother to Nicole Gauthier, Thane Bonar, Courtenay Verbrugge, Lane McGarrity and Ellie Bonar and great-grandmother to Allison and Curtis Gauthier. Elsie was predeceased by Frank her husband of 59 years and a daughter Glenis Anne and grandsons Davor Bonar and Cole Spenser. Elsie was born a prairie girl in Regina, Sask. The family relocated to Vancouver, BC where she attended school and spent her formative years. She met and later married the love of her life Frank during the war years, after which they moved to Parksville on Vancouver Island. Thus began a long association and career with MacMillan and Bloedel, moving later to Camp 5 (Campbell River area), Menzies Bay, Campbell River and Squamish, finally retiring and moving to South Surrey and the summer retreat at Birch Bay, Washington. Elsie was a full time mom. In her spare time she excelled in many sports including golf, bowling and curling. She loved having family and friends over and many happy hours were spent entertaining at home and at Birch Bay. A stroke victim in 2002 she was told she would never leave the hospital. In spite of this she recovered and continued an active and independent life. She made many friends and acquaintances in the post stroke community, and was an inspiration to all. She always counted good times ahead of personal and family tragedies and never complained. She was a wonderful wife, mom, grandmother and great grandmother and will be sadly missed. There will be no service, by request. A private family gathering was held to celebrate her life.
