Tourism WR surprised

Art Bates honoured at 92

BIA plans baffle mayor

The man who saved the pier Alex Browne

t takes a lot to make Art Bates mad. But the affable senior remembers he saw red the day he heard White Rock’s pier was on the verge of being dismantled. That was in 1976, when the federal Department of Transportation (now the Ministry of Transportation) decided it was no longer going to be responsible for the repair and maintenance of ‘unused’ piers. “I became incensed,” he recalls today. The influential Bates quickly spearheaded a successful community campaign to save the city icon – and it was that civic-minded action that was remembered in a recent surprise, a special certificate of honour “for saving the pier” signed and personally delivered by both Mayor Wayne Baldwin and former mayor (and current SurreyWhite Rock MLA) Gordon Hogg. Bates, now a resident of South Surrey’s Westminster House – and, at 92, not as mobile as he once was – said that when he was wheeled down to the Fireside Room of the complex on Sept. 21, he was expecting to visit with family members and a new great-grandchild, Maggie. They were there, all right, but so were Hogg and Baldwin (who still remembers the multiple-careered Bates as the charismatic TV weatherman on 1960s broadcasts originating from CFTK in Terrace that played across the Interior and northern B.C.). “I got the shock of my life seeing them there,” Bates said. “I never heard a peep about what was going on – they completely fooled me.” In the citation, Baldwin and Hogg said the pier is now a designated heritage site and a focus of tourism and recreation that has hosted “millions of people.” “…Their joy is due in large part to your civic-minded approach, and their joy is part of your legacy to this community.” i see page A4

The White Rock Business Improvement Association voted this week to cut funding to Tourism White Rock, a move the city’s mayor said makes no sense. The resolution – which came as “a total surprise” to tourism officials – was made Monday at the BIA’s annual general meeting. The resolution is to save the BIA $20,000 per year. Further cuts include an $8,000 contract for a tourism website, $20,000 for a tourism billboard near the border and about $25,000 for graffiti cleanup. Mayor Wayne Baldwin said Wednesday he cannot understand the logic of the Tourism White Rock cuts, given that the agency exists solely for the benefit of businesses. While he was comforted by news that the BIA will continue to fund about $90,000 worth of specific Tourism White Rock projects, he remains concerned that withdrawal of the $20,000 base funding could have adverse effects. “We still have the issue of the basic amount,” Baldwin told Peace Arch News. “I thought that was kind of a given.” Baldwin – noting Tourism White Rock was formed specifically to help the BIA – described the two organizations as “inextricably linked.” “It doesn’t really benefit anyone else,” he said. BIA president Jack Sixsmith said the decision was simply about being fiscally responsible. It – along with the other cuts – will free up about $95,000 of the annual BIA budget for other initiatives and opportunities, he said. i see page A5

wide-open nomination race, the candidate who can get the most supporters to actually cast a vote will win. Signing up members is the first step, but the most important is actually getting them to cast their ballot. Whether this has to be done at a nomination meeting or can be done electronically or ahead of time remains to be seen. With all the interest in this nomination, it’s an excellent time for people who live in the riding to bring up issues they are concerned about with the candidates. They will be out and about in the community and are seeking input (and of course, members). A wide-open nomination race like this one is true grassroots democracy, and it the way that nominations for federal and provincial office should be secured. Unfortunately, political parties have distanced themselves from routinely holding wide-open nomination meetings. In many cases, incumbents automatically get re-nominated. The NDP continues to actually hold open meetings at which their candidates are nominated. Incumbents rarely face serious challenges, but they can be challenged. Both the Conservatives and Liberals have done away with this in many ridings, and the net result is that democracy is weakened – both locally, in Victoria and in Ottawa.

Surrey Six trial told that a building manager suggested the serviceman not send his nephew

Uncle advised of concern over suite Sheila Reynolds Black Press

Before Ed Schellenberg was murdered in a North Surrey apartment, a co-manager of the building suggested he service the fireplace in Suite 1505 – instead of his young co-worker nephew – because of the type of people she saw visiting the unit. Tracy Carothers took the stand Tuesday at B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver on the second day of the trial for three men accused of first-degree murder and conspiracy in connection to the deaths of six men in the Balmoral Tower apartment building on Oct. 19, 2007. The execution-style mass murder has since become known as the Surrey Six. Schellenberg, 55, who was servicing fireplaces in the building on the day of the murders, was considered to simply be in the wrong place at the wrong time, as was 22-year-old Chris Mohan, who lived next door. The four other victims – Edward Narong, Ryan Bartolomeo and brothers Corey and Michael Lal – had ties to the drug trade and were known to police. Cody Rae Haevisher, Matthew Johnston

The accused sit in court Tuesday. and Quang Vinh Thang (Michael) Le are currently on trial for the murders. Carothers told Justice Catherine Wedge that she often saw many “young Asian males” and “scruffy” people coming and going from Suite 1505. She said she told the owner of the unit – who didn’t live there – that she thought his renter was selling drugs. On the day of the murders, she accompanied Schellenberg to the 15th floor to provide access to suites. She let him into 1501 and went to canvass other residents to see if

Surrey set for debate

Mixed views on future of Grandview Alex Browne Staff Reporter

A Surrey councillor is questioning an apparent rush to proceed with development of a largely rural area in Grandview Heights. Coun. Barinder Rasode said community consultation regarding plans for Area 4 of the Grandview Heights Neighbourhood Concept Plan identified environmental sensitivity as a concern. As the current NCP calls for the preservation of a wildlife corridor and ‘hub’, she said it is “a little confusing” why it seems to be taking priority for extensive housing development. Phase 1 of Area 4 – between 16 Avenue and 32 Avenue, bounded by 176 Street on the west and 184 Street on the east – is to return to Surrey council’s agenda on Monday. “We’ll be asked to vote yes or no on this, and if it’s given the green light, it will pretty much be going ahead,” Rasode said. “At this point I’m seriously considering the questions raised by community members who were part of the advisory committee and neighbouring community associations. What’s the need to go forward with (Area) 4 when other areas of the city are not fully developed?” But Coun. Linda Hepner says the return of a report from the advisory committee is merely a preliminary stage of “a natural progression of long-term planning” that will likely take years to conclude. She reserved comment on specifics of the plan, but said Phase 1 simply “gives (it) more clarity,” with the next stage to look at what it means in terms of servicing costs. i see page A5

Tractor/forklift topples into small ditch

Site worker cited for impaired driving Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A Vancouver man was cited for impaired driving last week following a construction-site incident in South Surrey that ended with a piece of heavy equipment on its side in a ditch. RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said it was sheer luck that no one was hurt. “It’s very fortunate that nobody – including the operator – was injured in this, for sure,” Paquet told Peace Arch News. Police were alerted to the incident at 5:30 p.m. Friday, when Surrey firefighters requested

assistance at a scene in the 15300-block of 20 Avenue. According to the police report, a tractor/ forklift toppled into a small ditch as it was being used to deliver building materials to an upper floor of an under-construction townhouse. Paquet said an officer at the scene suspected alcohol may have been a factor after speaking to the 55-year-old equipment operator. The operator then failed a roadside breath test and was handed a 90-day driving suspension; the vehicle was impounded for 30 days.

Paquet said it is “not often” that police impound construction equipment. Owners of such equipment may apply to have those requirements lifted if the equipment is needed for business, he said. Police blocked the road to traffic between 152 and 154 streets for much of Friday evening, while tow crews dealt with righting the vehicle. Paquet described it as “quite a technical operation,” given the proximity of overhead power lines and the size of the vehicle. BC Hydro was onsite as a safety precaution, and power in the area was out for about an hour.

‘All my sailor language came out’ i from page A1 The certificate is featured among his artwork and family photos in his bedroom. “I never thought much about it,� said Bates of saving the pier, in typically self-effacing manner, “It wasn’t just me – I had quite a bit of an army behind me. But I was the instigator.� He recalled his reaction at finding out the council of the mid-’70s was calmly prepared to bid farewell to the historic structure, rather than ante up thousands of dollars to repair it. “I hit the roof – I just went berserk,� he said with a chuckle, recalling he and a few seafaring friends had just established the White Rock Yacht Co-op, using the pier as the base of operations. “All my sailor language came out.� Bates had served as an able seaman during the Second World War – signing up early with an expectation of being shipped overseas – but he spent most of his time between Vancouver and Victoria before being invalided out near the end, suffering from a back injury and tuberculosis. Before that, the Navy had assigned him to duties using his drafting abilities – he originally trained as a commercial artist – and utilized his natural knack of communicating for training. Ironically, it was Bates’ former

Navy connections that were instrumental in saving the pier. “I’d got myself an appointment with the Department of Transportation, to see what could be worked out, outside of our stubborn council. The top guy’s name was Stan Wallace. As soon as I opened the door and walked in, he looked at me quizzically‌ ‘Art Bates?’ he said. It turned out I was his instructor when he first joined the Navy – we knew each other well.â€? In the course of a “chit-chat,â€? Bates told his Navy friend the story of the pier, first built in 1914 in anticipation of the city becoming a major port but subsequently its “pride and joyâ€? and social focus for generations. He also learned Wallace was weeks away from retirement. “I thought, gee, what a good time to hit him,â€? Bates recalled, a gleam of past mischief lingering in his eye. “He could spend with abandon – nobody would be able to harm him or demote him.â€? By the end of the meeting, Bates left with an assurance – “anything you want to do, we’ll do it.â€? “Armed with that, I came back here,â€? Bates said. With the pier signed over to White Rock in perpetuity, Bates lined up a federal government youth-employment program that ensured needed repair work

could be done with minimal financial exposure, removing one of the major objections to keeping the structure. “It made it pretty easy,â€? he said. It wasn’t just his yachting avocation that drove his anger at the prospect of losing the pier. He also treasured it as a place of exercise and reflection, from when he settled in White Rock. “I don’t think there was a day, when I was able, when I didn’t walk on the pier,â€? he said. Bates lives quietly these days, aside from visits from daughter Margo and other family members. His wife, Frankie, died in 2007, and he’s still recovering from a heart attack last year. But he still gets a chuckle recalling his multiple careers, including his work in the forest service, his spell as a weatherman and his stint as a White Rock Sun newspaper columnist. “I have been busy – busy every year of my life,â€? he said. “It’s always been things that have come to me, and I’ve always enjoyed them and been able to do them, even though I’ve had health problems. My (siblings) always used to say ‘poor Art’ – but they’re all gone, now.â€? Margo notes she recently joked that the only profession he’d never had was car salesman – only to hear her dad say ‘well, actually‌’â€?

Tourism WR still our partner: BIA i from page A1 “All of our decisions that we made at this AGM are all about fiscal responsibility,” he said. The BIA will continue to fund a variety of Tourism White Rock projects, Sixsmith noted. “In essence, they’re still our partner,” he said. “Tourism White Rock is a very important part of our strategy and they will continue to be a very important part of our strategy.” Tourism White Rock executive director Betina Albornoz said by email that the funding withdrawal “will definitely have a huge impact not only on our organization but also the projects we have jointly undertaken for our community over the past few years.” Albornoz told PAN she learned about the impending decision Monday morning, but said it is

community and we’re not about to let it go,” he said. “We’ve given it more authority than it had before, so we’ll be seeing that through.” Regarding billboard advertising that was erected near the Douglas border about 18 months ago, Sixsmith said the initiative has run its course, and that the consensus was the funds would be betterspent on improving road signage. “The initial idea of the billboard was to make up for the fact that there’s so little road signage to White Rock, and we feel as long as the billboard is there, then the road signage will not improve.” Baldwin agreed that billboard’s impact is difficult to measure. “The point is, I guess, is that the businesses feel it isn’t working. So, since it was done for their benefit… if they wish not to do that, we will likely cancel it.”

Surrey to renew Grandview debate i from page A3 But former Surrey councillor Bob Bose says it’s already clear that costs of extending water and sewer and other services – including transit – into the area will be considerable. He described moving forward with the plan as “ill-considered.” “There are a lot of areas that are fully planned that aren’t going ahead. I don’t agree with it at all – it extends Grandview far beyond

what is reasonable,” he said. Bose said he initially opposed any development in the Grandview corridor, but ultimately switched his position to containing it and limiting density. Area 4, he added, “represents one of the few real opportunities we have to protect an environmentally sensitive area.” Bose said he has also long been skeptical about Neighbourhood Concept Plans, which create “a

solid basis for future land use, and yet are not subject to public hearings.” Subsequent zonings and approvals, he said, tend to be in “lock-step” with what council has already approved in a NCP. “Council has compromised itself in terms of public accountability, and citizens advisory committees are largely stakeholder groups with a vested interest in the developments – there’s no balance in terms of community involvement.”

Beyond the surface

F

ew would dispute the notion that first encounters leave lasting impressions. An unexpected smile from a stranger can brighten another person’s day, as easily as a judgmental word can ruin it. But in a world where, more often than not, what you see is what you get, it is refreshing to know there are those encounters – those people – who don’t quite fit the mould. Time and again, it is proven that it can pay to look beyond a first impression; to open the tattered cover of a tossed-aside book, just to see what the author has to say. Such was the sentiment of those who came out last week to pay tribute to one of White Rock’s most-visible figures: Ryan Ashe. Ashe lived on the city’s streets – at its bus stops, behind its shrubbery and on its corners – for more than 20 years, before lung cancer took his life Aug. 13 at age 56. There’s no doubt Ashe made an impression on everyone he encountered. For some – faced with Ashe’s scruffy appearance, minimal hygiene and carefully tarped mound of personal effects – the experience felt intimidating, and they chose to keep walking. Others likely felt nothing (at least nothing they cared to acknowledge) and they also kept walking. Some, however, stopped. This latter group – perhaps sharing little more than a healthy curiosity and acceptance of their fellow man – spoke to Ashe, returned his gaptoothed smile and discovered, perhaps, that he wasn’t all that unlike them after all. He’d had a job, he’d had a home, he had a family. It was clear he had challenges – the most difficult chapter stemming from a severe head injury he suffered in a car crash 26 years ago. It would be conveniently poetic to remember Ashe as he was when encountered only on his good days. Like the rest of us, he had bad ones, too – when his thought-process seemed unconventional, to say the least. In news stories over the years that highlighted Ashe’s presence in the community, if the phrase ‘there but for the grace of God go I’ wasn’t mentioned, it most certainly came to mind during the writing, and – we’re hopeful – the reading. But, as many people pointed out Friday evening, Ashe’s life was not a blight. Far from it. His outlook, his sense of humour, even his determination to pay exact change for the can of room-temperature pop he so enjoyed, had an impact on those who chose to stop. Ashe may not have had the best of covers on his book, but his story was clearly a rewarding read.

did the weekend grocery shopping, she remarked that there was a really helpful, pleasant guy in the produce section, named Gary, who chatted with her regularly. Sure, we said. We’ve known him for a long time. It was quite some time before Gary put one and two together, and came up with the same family, which is apropos of nothing in particular, other than it illustrates his consistency with his customers. And that’s the point of this, I suppose. In this rushed world of big-box everything, endless aisles, throngs of shoppers,and emphasis on speedy service, it’s unusual to develop even a superficial relationship with someone serving customers, let alone a first-name friendship that delves into matters such as raising kids and travelling the world. He’s not the only one in our grocery store like that, actually. We know Pam at checkout as well – who has graduated from university and is going to become a chiropractor, taking her training in California. They make Saturday morning “country comfortable.” And they make their store more than a little bit special. It’s more than customer service. It’s customer connection. Not every shopping interaction can be like that, but when it occurs, you just have to stop a moment and appreciate it. Gary just retired a week ago. We’re sincerely going to miss him.

They are all heroes to me

The pub was here first

Editor: There was a time in journalism when the papers were filled with local stories of happiness and encouragement of a better future. In this age of technology, we are privy to every piece of bad news. I would like to turn the clock back for this letter. Last month at Seniors Come Share Society, I celebrated my 64th birthday. To my surprise, many people showed up to wish me a happy birthday. The room was decorated and I was given gifts and praise beyond anything I expected. After the celebrating was over, I had time to look at the gifts and the cards, and a thought came to mind. “Why?” What had I done to deserve such an honour, and how could I repay all of my friends for their kindness and generosity? I then realized that repayment wasn’t the reason for their kindness. The truth is that everyone at Come Share is trying to make this world a better place to live. Every day, they work with seniors who have nowhere else to go. Each and every one of them are heroes to me. When you think of Come Share you think of the programs they provide for your health, exercise and well-being, or maybe the notice for you to get an immunization shot, or maybe it’s the tax help. Maybe it’s the entertainment, such as musicians or dancers. It could be the barbecue they had for seniors or just any neighbour that wanted to come. It could be that they hooked you up with a service you could not normally afford, such as housekeeping or gardening for the elderly or disabled. Has their nurse, Tannis, worked on your feet? I live in the complex that surrounds their building, and I see their facility open long after normal working hours. Come Share is not just programs and services; these people really care. They have a resident angel, her name is Andrea. Over her desk is a beautiful picture of her daughter. Andrea has a heart of gold and gives me warm fuzzy feelings every time I talk with her. Ervin keeps everyone updated on the meal programs that are running, but always makes time for you if you need help. Noleen is amazing! I have a nine-year-old daughter who has obtained super powers from her cereal and can disassemble an entire household in 10 minutes. She arrived at Noleen’s door to shell out a little of her obtained power. When she exited, she was now the head of a new department with a task to perform! I think she was calculating pi to its final decimal place. Sean is their marketing and communications co-ordinator. I would ask him what that means, but he is always on the phone. I have missed so many people that work in Come Share that I am thankful for. I love you all and thank you for the years you have been involved in my life! William Auger, Surrey

Editor: Chaos at closing time, Sept. 24 letters. I feel compelled to write this in response to the letter to the editor moaning about neighbours of a pub having to put up with the fights, garbage, noise blah blah blah. May I suggest you look closer at the problem; the bar in question has been there a lot longer than you. It provides a place for people to listen to music, sing and have a good time. I’m not saying all patrons fully abide by the rules, but this is a problem all over. You can’t let a few ruin it for the majority. And then I see the suggestion that the pub should shut permanently. That’s nice, let’s look at the damage there – people without jobs. And who knows, you might be lucky enough for the closure then have a big condo built on its location with hundreds of noisy people. I ask you to respect that you live in a seaside community and you can’t expect a bar in this situation to always be quiet. However, I have a solution; look directly out at sea and move there.

You may have to ask the whales to be quiet though. And yes I live in close proximity! And no, I’m not one of the mentioned clientele Russell Marshall, White Rock

Time to work as a team Editor: Well, it is a fine situation that White Rock Mayor Wayne Baldwin finds himself in with certain members of council, as I see it. It would seem that he does not want to use available communication to keep all in the loop as to motions to be presented at any given council meeting (Councillors lash out at city hall rethink, Sept. 12). Further, his “love-in” with the anti-coal opposition was a fantastic photo-op (Cross-party opposition over coal trains, March 19), but I am sure did not help with the senior executives and decision makers of a Fortune 500 company as BNSF. Such issues are best left to higher levels of government to be lobbied by both mayor and council as a team. So the real kicker now might be that the waterfront will be caged by

a chain-link fence – complete with warning signs – enough to finally extinguish remaining businesses (Mayor ‘will resist’ rail fencing, Sept. 24. I am sure the BNSF will leave some controlled access, such as the immediate entrance to the pier and possibly West and East Beach. The parking revenue that the City of White Rock enjoys will, I am certain, take a horrific toll, as tourists and visitors alike will not like the areas available. I am certain Baldwin would as well control the number blows of horn on each train that passes through our city, if he actually had a legislated say in the matter. I have grown up in the Crescent Beach-White Rock area since the mid-’60s and was always aware that trains exist. Thus, I find it hard to understand that purchasers of homes impacted have such issues as train tracks after they purchase. As the saying goes, “any time is train time” towards keeping yourself safe in their environment. A word of simple advice would be for the mayor to form a committee headed by perhaps Couns. Helen Fathers and Larry Robinson to form better ties with the BNSF and avoid a catastrophic impact on our local business community. Ron Eves, White Rock

Letter writers are speaking out over health concerns, as Port Metro Vancouver plans to ship more coal by rail.

Co-ordinated efforts over coal Editor: Months ago, MP Russ Hiebert noted that he, too, had concerns about the proposed Fraser Surrey Docks coalhandling facility (Community being heard over coal: MP, July 2). Yet he stated he just didn’t have any authority or power to do anything. And this from our three-timeselected member of Parliament. No authority? Could not do anything about it? On May 30, Dr. Paul Van Buynder of Fraser Health called for Port Metro Vancouver to conduct a full health-impact assessment (Health officer wields power, June 13). For a full three months nothing was heard. Now, after considerable public concern in the form of 10,000-signature petition by Communities and Coal and from thousands of others who have contacted Port Metro, they have agreed to conduct a truncated environmental-impact assessment. Unfortunately, it falls far short of a full health-impact assessment. Well, now is the time for Hiebert (South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale) to stand up for his constituents and do what is right – be an advocate for his constituents. It is really quite simple. He doesn’t have to yell and scream or anything like that. All he has to do is send two letters to Port Metro Vancouver, calling on them to comply fully with the full health-impact assessment and urging them to support the democratic process fully by agreeing to hold full public hearings. Romi & Roger Mattu, Delta Q

As residents who live near the BNSF rail line, we are very concerned with the prospect of having more cheap U.S. coal moving through our community. This Warren Buffet/Jim Pattison partnership is affecting our health, our peace and our property values as well as promoting and assisting pollution in Asia. Charles Fast, White Rock Q An open letter to Dr. Paul Van Buynder. As a resident of the Lower Mainland who will be adversely affected by the negative impacts of coal dust, diesel particulate matter, noise and safety, should the Fraser Surrey Docks permit application be approved, I am looking to you as a strong voice to stand up for the thousands of people who are counting on you to be our voice when Fraser Surrey Docks releases its environmental-impact assessment. We know already this assessment is going to fall short of what you had recommended with the comprehensive health-impact assessment months ago. As we expect this EIA to be released this coming week, please know that we are looking to you to help us and our families. Please know that we support your efforts and commend you for being our voice in such a pivotal time. You do not only have my support by voice but also my respect for all you are doing during this crucial period for the Lower Mainland and the seaside communities of Ocean Park, Crescent Beach and White Rock.

A man accused of sexually assaulting two women in White Rock six years ago is to be tried on the charges in New Westminster next June. Following a preliminary hearing in Surrey Provincial Court, Jason Andrew Robinson was ordered in July to stand trial in B.C. Supreme Court. The trial dates were set Sept. 24. Prosecutor Winston Sayson confirmed Tuesday that the case will be heard by judge alone. A pre-trial conference has been scheduled for April 28. According to court records, the alleged assaults occurred on Aug. 3 and Aug. 31 of 2007. The victims – aged 25 and 33 at the time – told police they had been sexually assaulted at a White Rock residence by an acquaintance. An arrest warrant was first issued that same year, however, difficulties locating the accused stymied the proceedings. The trial is set for June 2-6, 2014. - Tracy Holmes

Bridge tolls, gas tax coming up short

TransLink ‘will hit a wall’ Jeff Nagel Black Press

TransLink will lose more money on the Golden Ears Bridge and to declining gas taxes, worsening its struggle to finance the current level of transit service in the face of growing demand. Tolls from motorists who cross the four-year-old bridge connecting Langley and Maple Ridge continue to fall short of the payments TransLink must make. TransLink officials told Metro Vancouver mayors Thursday that the annual subsidy for the $800-million bridge is expected to grow from $30 million now to around $40 million in each of the next two years. It was always expected to be subsidized in the initial years, but the red ink is stretching out longer because the use of the bridge – 32,000 vehicles per day – isn’t

growing as projected. The take from the 17-cent-a-litre regional gas tax is also forecast to drop for the first time in 2016. More fuel-efficient cars, drivers refueling outside the region and increased transit use are all factors. TransLink has sought to contain costs and shuffle bus service, but with its revenue of $1.44 billion a year not rising as fast as population growth, it’s being stretched thinner over time. Executive vice-president Bob Paddon said the level of transit service delivered per capita peaked in the region in 2009 and has now declined to 2007 levels. With more money now going out than comes in, TransLink has begun to draw down its accumulated reserve to plug an annual deficit of about $20 million. It also plan to start liquidating prime real estate – such as its for-

mer Oakridge transit centre – to pay for existing transit. Some mayors object to selling an estimated $200 million worth of property to fund operations, instead of earmarking it for future projects. “They’re cannibalizing,” White Rock Mayor Wayne Baldwin said, predicting TransLink will “hit a wall” in the years ahead. “The crisis is being understated by this strategy,” added Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie. TransLink CEO Ian Jarvis said he doesn’t like it either, but there’s no choice other than immediate deep cuts to service. Delta Mayor Lois Jackson said the refusal of many drivers to pay a high toll at the Golden Ears and the Port Mann bridges is evidence that it would be better to apply consistent, smaller tolls on all bridges in the region.

Surrey runs for the cure

Teaming up to fight cancer Alex Browne Staff Reporter

I

t’s hitting the ground running. Surrey’s first Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure Event this Sunday at Bear Creek Park is a success – even before a single foot is set on the five-kilometre course. According to Debi Rumley – a founder of the well-known and respected Nite of Hope fundraiser and a member of Team Torrie, supporting runner Torrie Thomsen – there were more than 900 participants registered a week before the event, which should mean more than 1,000 by the day. “That means some $100,000 in funds raised before we even start the run,” she said. The heartwarming response from area residents also means the event will be the third largest in B.C., after the runs in Vancouver and ❝There are Victoria. people registered “And they’ve been to run I’ve never doing it for 20-plus met, and that’s years,” she said. “I’m so grateful we wonderful.❞ have had such an Torrie Thomsen immediate response, but given my cancer patient experience with Nite of Hope, I’m not surprised. People in Surrey are great, and they will really get behind something like this.” Rumley, herself a breast-cancer survivor, said she is happy to be supporting Thomsen, 29, who was diagnosed with breast cancer a year ago. Some 26 people are running, and raising funds for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation’s activities in B.C., as part of her team, Thomsen said. “There are a lot of family, a lot of friends, but there are people registered to run I’ve never met, and that’s wonderful,” Thomsen said. “There’s a lot of community that’s coming together for this.” The healthy-looking – and always

I thought it was probably nothing but I went to the doctor and it was only a week after that the diagnosis came –

it all happened extremely fast.” Thomsen said the impact of hearing that one has breast cancer cannot be overstated. “It does have a huge impact on a woman’s life and on her whole family,” she acknowledged. But she credits a “wonderfully direct” doctor and the support of local hospital staff for launching her immediately on a “road map” for treatment and recovery. “I’d say they have the process down to an art form,” she said. “Fortunately, with my breast cancer there were a lot of treatment

options, particularly because we caught it so soon. He was very hopeful and that made me very hopeful too.” But the road can never be easy. Thomsen was only recently married to her husband Kellan, and one of the many things she’s had to contemplate is what impact chemotherapy would have on her ability to have children. Opting to have a full mastectomy and reconstructive surgery, she also chose the chemotherapy route after optimistic results of fertility tests. Speaking to the Peace Arch News this week at the conclusion of a 28-day course of chemotherapy treatments, Thomsen was clearly optimistic about the future and a full recovery – an optimism that is buoyed by the tremendous support she has received from friends and family and the community – including the boys of a teen minor hockey league team her husband coaches who were fundraising as soon as they heard of her diagnosis. “I can tell you for a fact, the first thing you think is ‘oh God, is this really happening’ but the second thing is thank God for organizations like the CBCF. Their support is working, all of the awareness campaigns are working and all of the fundraising is making a difference. “I feel very, very fortunate to be sitting here.” To register, volunteer or donate, visit www.runforthecure.com

Self Surrey Youth Awards on Nov. 1 at Surrey’s Bell Centre for Performing Arts. The SASSY Awards honour youth aged 16 to 21 who make a difference in our community. Six awards will be presented: youth leadership, community service, humanitarian, against-the-odds, athletic/sportsmanship and performing and visual arts. Recipients receive a $1,000 bursary, a trophy and $500 to donate to a charity. Tickets can be purchased by contacting Jim Purcell (jdpurcell56@gmail. com); prices are $15 for students, $25 for adults. For information, go to www.sassyawards.ca Q Many of the youth in our community are busy giving back. From a young age, one such youth – Karan Grover – was taught by his parents that it is

vital to give back to the community, although he was not sure how to go about doing it. Someone mentioned the Panorama YMCA Interact Club – a younger division of Rotary International – and he was amazed to see the passion of its members. Karan has been a member since 2009. Through this club, he and the others have achieved wonderful projects. They fundraised to send wheelchairs to Mexico, and Karan and others personally delivered them in needy areas. Now club president, Karan says he will continue to be involved with Rotary for the rest of his life. Members are now planning the Surrey Leadership Action Conference Oct. 25-27. Valerie Giles writes monthly on behalf of the Semiahmoo Peninsula’s five Rotary Clubs.

Jozef Demcak and his Burmese python, Bigfoot.

An Evening with the Paranormal Society

Python laid to rest

Bigfoot, a 4.5-metre Burmese python who lived out his last days in solitude at a rescue facility in South Surrey, has died. He was prevented from being put on public exhibit for the last three years of his life, but the public – and the media – were invited to his cremation last Friday at an animal crematorium in North Vancouver to say goodbye. The massive, more than three-decade-old Burmese python was put on ice after he died Sept. 23. “Bigfoot died sad and lonely,” according to his owners, Jozef and Bibiana Demcak, who said in a press release the snake had been part of a travelling exotic-animal exhibit for than 30 years as part of Jozef Demcak’s Exotic Animals Science Museum and the Jozef Magic Show.

Bigfoot spent the last three years at Urban Safari Exotic Animal Rescue Society’s refuge at 1395 176 St., but wasn’t on display and was kept apart from other snakes, including his relatives. The public facility does have snakes on public view, but none that are greater than three metres in length, according to owner and operator Gary Oliver, a friend of the Demcak’s and member of the Cloverdale District Chamber of Commerce. Demcak was prevented from exhibiting Bigfoot because he was unable to obtain a permit, under changes to B.C.’s Wildlife Act in 2009. Demcak’s attempt to challenge the Controlled Alien Species regulation – which covers dangerous animals from crocodiles to big cats – was unsuccessful, Oliver said.

White Rock firefighters are again inviting the community to have a ball in the name of charity. The crew will host Halloween Howl 2 at Star of the Sea Hall (15262 Pacific Ave.) on Oct. 26, with proceeds benefiting community events and an allabilities playground. It is the second time that the fundraiser has had a Halloween theme. This time, costumes “are definitely a must,” said firefighter Evan Bird Tuesday. “We had a full house last year and the costumes were unbelievable.” The dance, headlined last October by White Rock-born reggae-rocker Daniel Wesley, raised about $7,500 towards ongoing efforts to establish the playground eyed for White Rock’s waterfront. This year, Six Gun Romeo will return to kick off the evening, followed by DJ Ali Baba. Bird said he is confident they are the right mix to get people up and dancing once again. There will also be prizes for costumes. Tickets, $25, went on sale this week. They can be purchased online at www.wrff.eventbrite. ca or at the firehall, 15315 Pacific Ave. For information, call 604-5316045. - Tracy Holmes

VISIT THE FARM THIS WEEKEND

OCEANFRONT AND OCEANVIEW COTTAGE HOMES FROM THE HIGH $300’S* Located a mere 35 kilometres from downtown Vancouver, The Cottages at Seabright Farm in Point Roberts, Washington promises to become one of the most creative and valuedriven recreational neighbourhoods in the Lower Mainland. Seabright Farm is a planned cottage community that will integrate smoothly into the Point Roberts experience. In the words of the project’s renowned designer and visionary, Cal Srigley: “It won’t look really planned at all.�

THE COTTAGES AT SEABRIGHT: A DESIGN PHILOSPHY

Srigley explains the vision for Seabright Farm: “Historically, Point Roberts was a farming community with many of the simple, well-proportioned and practical structures common throughout the northwest. Farm buildings were constructed of wood and stone and nestled in groups into the landscape.�

“You’ll be able to take a short walk from your cottage to pick organically grown vegetables, berries, fruit, and herbs. And there will ORĹŻ^fRaUMaQR]bc^^ĹŞRaOaWUVcMQQWcW^]b to your cheerful cottage.â€? “I am going to bring gardening to my neighbours through example and proximity.

Later, as Point Roberts became a vacation destination for Vancouverites, summer cottages were added to the area’s cultural hallmarks. “The cottages were built for simple pleasures and PMbdMZ^dcQ^^aZWeW]UÍ™E^\RcW\RbP^Z^daSdZM]QfVW\bWPMZÍœcVRbRV^\RbORPM\RcVRbcdĹŞ^S fond memories and have been passed on as family legacies.â€? “Finally, there is the distinctive Tsawwassen peninsula landscape that shapes our design eWbW^]Í›^PRM]OZdĹŞbfWcVZ^]UeWbcMbÍœ_a^cRPcRQ\RMQ^fbM]QĹŹRZQbÍœM]Qbd]ÍšQM__ZRQ f^^QZM]QbÍ™FVR^eRaMZZU^MZ^SERMOaWUVcWbc^aRĹŻRPccVRORbc^SB^W]cD^ORacbÍšMb\MZZÍœadaMZ settlement in harmony with the majestic landscape - the stunning meadows, woodlands, and OZdĹŞb͙ͪ Only 62 cottages will be built on the property, with much of the neighbourhood preserved as undeveloped, creating open vistas where lot lines blend into community woodlands and ĹŹRZQbÍ™?dPV^ScVRbcMcRZh\M_ZRÍœPRQMaM]Q5^dUZMb7WacaRRPM]^_hfWZZOR_aRbRaeRQÍœVRWUVcening the natural splendours to be enjoyed while walking or horseback riding on the public trails.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Arthur Miller’s The Crucible opens at Coast Capital Playhouse Oct. 9

Timeless theme of fear, panic and tragedy Alex Browne

I

Arts Reporter

t’s not accidental that American playwright Arthur Miller’s 1952 play, The Crucible, made its debut at the time of the HUAC-McCarthy Communist ‘witch hunt.’ Miller – himself later investigated for former ‘Communist’ connections – saw in the infamous Salem witch trials of the 17th century an allegory of the political and social crisis that was unfolding. More than an exercise in hard-hitting theatre, White Rock Players’ Club’s production – opening Oct. 9 at Coast Capital Playhouse (1532 Johnston Rd.) – is an object lesson on how well-meaning people can become party to persecution and injustice, and how the agendas of some can twist the ideals and values espoused by many. In the play, a group of young girls are suspected of being bewitched – at a time when witchcraft is viewed as an immediate peril. But the church investigation runs out of control in an atmosphere of fear ❝We want, as Christians, to be and hysteria, and holy people – but accusations and what does that counter-accusations multiply with demand of us?❞ increasingly tragic Rebekah McEwen consequences for the community. actor Director Ryan Mooney, also artistic director for the Players’ Club, says his emphasis is on the timelessness of this theme, which is why he has chosen a subtly ‘updated’ look for the production. Instead of a purist recreation of the setting of Salem, Mass. in 1692, the play has been shifted to a dystopian future that may or may not be that far removed from our own present. “I don’t know Ryan that well, but he’s a risk-taker,” said Rebekah McEwen, cast in the key role of farmer’s wife Elizabeth Proctor, drawn into bleak tragedy because of the prior adultery of husband John (J.C. Roy) with one of the girls, the scheming Abigail Williams (Rebecca Strom). “I love the way he sees people and what he draws out of actors. He doesn’t give line readings – he wants people to do their thing, but he has got a plan in mind.” For McEwen, the show is a big departure. Known best for musicals (including numerous productions for Fraser Valley Gilbert and Sullivan Society), she was last seen on the White Rock stage as the ukulele-plunking, show-tune warbling

Rebekah McEwen, as Elizabeth Proctor, appears with J.C. Roy and Tom Gage in Arthur Miller’s powerful witch-hunt drama The Crucible. ingenue in Wendy Bollard’s uproarious murder-mystery spoof The Game’s Afoot, Peninsula Productions’ summer show. “That was so much fun – you could laugh it up and push all the boundaries,” she said. In contrast, dramatic intensity of The Crucible is “a wonderful challenge,” she said, adding she is happy to have received special dispensation from husband Jonathan and their two children, Robert, 7, and Anne, 5, to indulge her passion for theatre once again. “It is my outlet,” she admitted. “I step into the theatre and everything else falls away – I can step into the light and become a different person.” The show has resonance for McEwen on a number of levels, she said. Interesting to her is its depiction of a small faith-based community – she is, herself, the daughter of a minister and grew up in Fort Langley, where she is now worship director, band and choir leader for the Evangelical Church.

“It’s very close to my upbringing,” she noted, adding that she feels that the play opens a “healthy” debate on the ways in which religion can be subverted – important to an understanding of genuine faith and spirituality. “We want, as Christians, to be holy people – but what does that demand of us, where is the line?” In this context, she said, one of the most significant characters is Rev. Hale (Tom Gage). One of the core tragedies of The Crucible is that his earnest attempt to save his flock by investigating the alleged witchcraft is derailed by other agendas that have nothing to do with religion. “He tries to rectify things, but they have gone too far, and he ends up with blood on his hands.” Aside from the intense drama, McEwen said she can also identify with the play’s depiction of marriage. “It hits really close to home, the idea of a

husband and wife just dealing with life,” she said. “Fortunately, I have a great marriage, but we all have times when we’re not on the same page.” At the same time, playing Elizabeth is giving her an opportunity to inhabit a very different personality than her own, she said. “She’s not very confident. She struggles with self-image. And she’s placed in a lot of difficult situations, trying to keep her marriage together, and family together and deal with ridiculous accusations.” Other players in a large and talented cast include Dann Wilhelm, Mike Busswood, Tim Driscoll, Ken Fynn, Jane Mantle and Dave Carroll. The Crucible runs until Oct. 26, with performances at 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, and a 2:30 p.m. matinee on Sunday, Oct. 20.

White Rock’s first International Artist Day Festival, Oct. 21-27 at the White Rock Community Centre, 15154 Russell Ave., will highlight works by invited master artists. But also showcased will be works by many artists participating in the anonymous 12-by-12-inch exhibition on display at the centre. Artists from all over B.C. were invited to submit uniform-sized works for this section of the festival – which aims at offering affordable pieces that will be judged, and hopefully purchased, on artistic merits alone. But the identities are known to organizers – and among those who have submitted works are many well-known and valued names including local artists Shirley Thomas, Pauline Dutkowski, Georgina Johnstone, Sheila Symington, Eve Lees, Jess Rice, Irene Shklover, Trish Pollock, Peter Daniels,

Nicole Carrie, Ann Worth, Marilyn Hurst, Louis Bomben and Serge Dube. Meanwhile, there’s still a chance to buy tickets for the gala-launch event for Friday Oct. 25. Only 200 tickets will be available for the gala, hosted by Jane Baldwin. Entertainment will be provided by MC Mark Donnelly and award-winning local bassist Jodi Proznick and her trio – and the first 75 people to buy a ticket will also receive a special bonus – admission to an after party performance by the trio at White Rock’s Blue Frog Studios. Ticket price ($150) includes a $100 voucher which can be put toward the purchase of any piece of art featured in the festival. Tickets can be purchased online through White Rock Leisure Services, by calling 604-541-2199 (Ext. 0), or in person at White Rock Community Centre; due to demand tickets cannot be reserved for later purchase.

The moon has a special place in the folklore and traditions of many peoples – including the Semiahmoo who first inhabited the peninsula. Semiahmoo, we are told in local legend, even means “half moon” – after the shape of the bay. But autumn festivals of the moon are also very important in the culture of people of Chinese descent, including the Peninsula’s growing community. On these and many other levels, a new cross-cultural event, the White Rock Moon Festival, seems a natural for the community. The first edition will come to the West Beach waterfront this weekend as part of the city’s Fall Festival of the Arts; a celebration of Chinese and Canadian culture that will feature the magical sight of some 800 Chinese lanterns lighting the pier and promenade, plus a variety of entertainers, food vendors and art displays. The event is the brain child of Eric Stepura, White Rock’s Leisure Services director, who has developed it in association with Dr. Ricky Q. Li, president of the Association of Chinese i see page A27

Chinese culture and folklore will be celebrated at this weekend’s festival.

‘Perfect fit’ for waterfront i from page A26 Cultural Promotions Canada (ACCP) and Leslie Zhao of the White Rock Chinese Arts Centre, with a strong assist from the White Rock Rotary Club. Stepura is no stranger to such events – as former manager of sports and community events for the City of Richmond he was closely involved with the Richmond Lantern Festival, as well as co-ordinating many other events such as the Tall Ship Festival and serving on the design team for the Richmond Olympic oval. “In my discussions with White Rock’s city manager, Dan Bottrill, when I was first hired, we talked about the desire of council to have events on the waterfront to take place during the ‘shoulder’ seasons,” he recalled. “I said a festival like this would be a perfect fit for our waterfront.” “What the Moon Festival is in Chinese culture is a celebration of the harvest, as well as the spirituality of the autumn moon. A lot of traditions go with it, such as the eating of moon cakes, and there are many legends about the moon in Chinese culture.” Stepura said the entertainment lineup, at a main stage just east of the White Rock Museum and Archives, will include traditional Chinese dancers, martial-arts displays and “a variety of both Chinese and Western entertainers in both music and dance,” including White Rock’s Spiral Dance Company. The White Rock Chinese Art Centre will

feature products of the local artistic and cultural community as well as co-ordinating childrens’ activities. The festival will also be the venue for the Day of Drawing artists’ collective, who will mount their first ‘pop-up’ exhibition, housed in a 26-foot truck in the parking lot west of the museum (the exhibition will also travel to Morgan Crossing, Surrey Arts Centre and Kwantlen Polytechnic University on subsequent weekends). Imaginative drawing activities will be available in an adjacent tent for all ages and skill levels – and the theme for the weekend’s drawings, naturally enough, will be the moon. Stepura said that a lot of the razzledazzle of the inaugural festival will come by way of the co-promotion with the ACCP, which is also organizing the current Vancouver Chinese Cultural Festival. “We will be utilizing performers who are also part of the Vancouver festival as well,” he said. “A big part of what we want to accomplish is to showcase the waterfront to a variety of people from the Peninsula and beyond, and encourage them to visit our local restaurant and pubs, and also to celebrate Chinese culture – we want it to be a real learning experience for people.” The festival runs Friday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more informatrion, visit www.whiterockcity.ca

Peninsula swimmer Hilary Caldwell looks up at the scoreboard after setting a Canadian record at FINA World Championships last summer.

‘I was exactly where you are now’ Nick Greenizan

Sports Reporter

ilary Caldwell figured it had been about two years – at least – since she’d last dipped her toes into the water at the South Surrey Indoor Pool. But considering her schedule of late, her absence can be excused. The 22-year-old swimmer now lives and trains in Victoria, and she’s been awful busy in the water the last, oh, 18 months or so. For starters, she represented Canada at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, competing in the women’s backstroke, and since then, she’s been on a whirlwind tour of Europe, competing on the World Cup circuit. Back in August, she won a bronze medal in the 200-m backstroke at the FINA World Championships, and setting a new Canadian record in the bargain. So, yeah, she’s been a little bit pre-occupied. “It’s been a busy few months – few years,

I guess,” she laughed, while standing in the lobby of White Rock’s Centennial Arena late last month, where she was set to speak to young swimmer from her Pacific Sea Wolves Swim Club. After speaking to the group, they headed to South Surrey Pool for a practice session in which Caldwell helped coach. “I’m pretty spoiled, being in Victoria, and getting to swim at the Commonwealth Pool, because it’s so nice. But coming back here to the little pool where I started, it’s pretty fun. I mean, I swam here for 12 years and PSW did so much for me,” said Caldwell, who is still affiliated with PSW and represents the club at Canadian meets. “I love coming back. I get to see my parents – they live right down the road – and some friends and other people. It’s so nice to be home, even if it’s just for a day.” Her homecoming was indeed brief. She had arrived from Victoria just hours before speaking to PSW swimmers that Friday

BC Y H DRO NIGHT

afternoon, and the following day headed to Whistler for the Swim BC awards. It was a worthwhile trip up the Sea-to-Sky, too – Caldwell was named Swim BC’s female swimmer of the year, while Brad Dingey, the longtime head coach of the Sea Wolves, was named coach of the year for 15- to 18-yearold swimmers. Whether in her hometown or abroad, Caldwell, who is studying French and history at the University of Victoria, said she always enjoys speaking to young, up-and-coming swimmers. “It’s fun to talk to the kids,” she said. “I remember as a young swimmer, how cool it was when Canadian Olympians would come and talk to us, so it’s nice to be able to do that myself now.” And the message she delivers, which emphasizes hard work and persistence, is far more than just platitudes and cliche – it’s the story of her path from

South Surrey to the Olympic stage. “The message I give to them is that, not that long ago, I was exactly where you are now. I was never a standout 12-year-old superstar, or even a star at 14 or 16,” she explained. “I just worked hard every day and kept going, finding little bits of motivation where you can. But I was exactly where they were.” As proof, Caldwell points to her first few swim practices in Victoria, where she was in the water alongside seasoned veterans and swimmers with all manner of international experience. “I was training with Olympians and Canadian record-holders, so that was eyeopening to me. It was a little intimidating at first, but then I realized, ‘Hey, I’m doing every day what you’re doing every day, so we’re not that different, really,’” said Caldwell, who had the Olympic rings tattooed on her i see page A31

Semiahmoo fields boys soccer team for first time in years

Totems back on the pitch Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

No one seems to be quite sure how long it’s been since Semiahmoo Secondary had a boy’s soccer team. One student originally said the number at 30 years, while a letter from the school to parents pegged the absence at 10. Meanwhile, the school’s athletic director, Myles Winch, insists “it hasn’t been 10, but probably five.” Whatever the case, teacher sponsor/coach Paul Langton is right when he says, simply, that “it’s been quite a while.” Regardless of time frame, the school has indeed returned to the pitch with a junior boy’s team this season. And despite all the growing pains associated with starting a new team from scratch – everything from finding coaches and holding tryouts to ordering uniforms – the Semiahmoo Totems have been pretty successful through the first few weeks of the season. In its first-ever game last month, the team earned a 2-2 tie against Panorama Ridge, and this week defeated Langley Fundamental 3-1. Semi played a third game, against Tamanawis Secondary, Wednesday afternoon after Peace Arch News’ press deadline. “It’s been really great   – everyone is really excited about it,”

Tracy Holmes photo

Semi’s Matt Katsumata battles for a ball against Panorama. said Langton, who said 38 students came out for the team’s first tryout session, and the team has been whittled down now to 17. All 17 players play soccer on community teams, including many at the rep level, Langton added. Ironically, it was community soccer that played a part in kiboshing the school’s boys teams 10 or five or however many years ago it was. Back then, Semiahmoo players couldn’t commit to the school’s

games because of scheduling conflicts with their community teams, Winch said. By the end of the last season, the team had to forfeit a handful of games due to a lack of players. “That was kind of the final straw,” said Winch, who added that, through the years, various parents have tried to revive the school’s soccer program, but to no avail. “Soccer is covered so well in the community, we were spending a bunch of money for something that already exists.” In addition to Langton’s help, this year’s team is coached by Peter Ntokolas, a parent and community coach. Commitment to the new squad has not been a problem thus far, Langton is quick to emphasize. For starters, he points to the number of players on the roster, and secondly, the fact that players paid for their new uniforms themselves. Additionally, the school team’s schedule better meshes with the commitments of community soccer this time around. “Most of the club teams practice in the evening now, so if we practice right after school, it lets the kids go home in time for dinner and still get to their evening practice,” Langton said. “It’s been a really good start.”

Major-midget hockey squad splits two weekend games

SAVE

Hawks in tie for first place Rick Kupchuk Black Press

They split two games in Richmond, but it was enough to lift the Valley West Hawks into a three-way tie for first place two weeks into the BC Hockey Major Midget League season. The Hawks fell 5-4 to the Okanagan Rockets Saturday night, then came back for a 4-2 victory Sunday afternoon at the Richmond Oval. With three wins in four starts, Valley West shares top spot with the Rockets and the Vancouver Giants. The Hawks had the lead for just 15 minutes over the weekend,

but it was enough to hand the Rockets their first loss of the season Sunday. Matt Bradley of Surrey led the way over Okanagan, scoring three times and assisting on a powerplay goal by Mitch Newsome. After a scoreless first period, the Rockets tallied twice in the first four minutes of the second. Bradley got one back for the Hawks before the second intermission, then tied the game a minute into the third. Newsome, from Surrey, got the winner with 15 minutes to play. Netminder Cole Forbes of Clo-

IN ANY

verdale was a standout in goal, making 40 saves for the victory. Saturday, the Rockets took the lead after just 20 seconds of play and never looked back. They were up 2-0 before Eric Callegari put the Hawks on the scoresheet. Okanagan went up 3-1 before Bradley netted his first of four on the weekend to close out the first period scoring. The Rockets netted two more in the second to take a 5-2 lead into the final frame. Davis Koch and Ty Westgard, two forwards from White Rock, scored in the third period for the Hawks.

Stylish living at Woodbridge’s Salix in Surrey By Kerry Vital

The Clayton Heights neighbourhood is one of Surrey’s most popular areas for families and first-time buyers alike, with its easy access to amenities, shopping, dining and recreation. Now Woodbridge Homes is offering beautiful homes at a great value with its condominium development Salix. “Sales have been going very well here,” says sales manager Rob Carlsen. “We’re in the final stage of sales now, with a good

variety of homes left.” The remaining plans are mostly two-bedroom and den plans, ranging from 850 to 1,000 square feet. The five-storey Georgian-inspired building features a red brick exterior, lush landscaping and classic iron work, and every home includes a patio or balcony. Oversized windows let natural light pour in while the nine-foot ceilings (10 feet on the top and bottom floors) add an incredible sense of space to your new home. Most units feature beautiful views, so you may have

some trouble tearing yourself away from spending all your free time outside taking in the scenery, including Mount Baker. “The location has been working really well for us,” Carlsen says. “You’re in a small, quiet building that really stands above the crowd.” Homes start at $219,900. For more information, visit www. salixliving.com, call 604-530-0054 or visit the presentation centre at 6477 196th Street, Surrey, open daily except Friday between noon and 5 p.m.

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

Polygon’s Canyon Springs is built in a West Coast style, and features spacious floorplans with gorgeous features such as rich laminate flooring, stainless-steel appliances and engineered stone countertops.

Natural beauty abounds at Canyon Springs By Kerry Vital

The Lower Mainland is famous for its outdoor lifestyle and variety of recreational activities. Most residents think of the North Shore when they want to get outside. Now, Polygon is bringing outdoor living and gorgeous homes together with Canyon Springs, its new collection of apartment residences in North Vancouver. “There are no other comparable new communities in Lynn Valley,” says sales manager Laura Cavanagh. “It’s been popular with local buyers especially since we are currently offering buyers a special financing

package.” Available until Oct. 14 only, Polygon is offering five-year, 2.95 per cent financing as part of their pre-construction sales program. “This is a great opportunity to secure a home before we close our doors on Oct. 14,” says Cavanagh. The curb appeal is readily apparent at Canyon Springs, with its contemporary West Coast architecture that fits perfectly with the surrounding natural beauty of the neighbourhood. The one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment residences are spacious and inviting, ranging from about 630 to 1,100 square feet. “These are really efficient floorplans,” Cavanagh says. “There’s no wasted space at all.” Elegant laminate flooring throughout (with plush carpeting in the bedrooms) sets a modern tone for your new space, complemented by the nine-foot ceilings in the living and dining rooms. Buyers can choose between two colour schemes, Dark and

White. The kitchens are particularly beautiful, with stainless-steel appliances and premium rift-cut, flat-panel cabinetry in oak or glossy white. The cabinets are complemented by engineered stone countertops, a handset tile backsplash and contemporary halogen track and under-cabinet lighting. The bathrooms are relaxing and luxurious, with imported porcelain tile flooring, flatpanel laminate cabinetry and a modern tub with a ceramic tile tub and shower surround. Your morning routine will be easy with the modern vanity mirror and lighting. The ensuite also includes engineered stone countertops and Grohe polished chrome tub and shower faucets that lend a touch of elegance to the space. The outdoors is all around you at Canyon Springs, and residents will easily be able to take advantage of this on their large deck or patio. Most ground-level homes will even have a private yard. Homeowners at Canyon Springs will have

access to a fully equipped fitness studio overlooking an outdoor terrace, an on-site resident manager, a dog wash station and bike cleaning area and a spacious lounge with a fireplace. The landmark corner will also showcase a dramatic water feature and cast bronze art piece designed by local artist Marie Khouri. Venturing off the property, you’ll find shopping, dining and schools all nearby, as well as the North Shore mountains and easy transit or car access to downtown Vancouver and the rest of the Lower Mainland. The close-knit community of Lynn Valley is like very few others in Metro Vancouver, where everyone from shoppers to yogis and freeriders to dog walkers enjoys an ideal balance between wild spaces and urban convenience. Homes start at $359,900. For more information on the homes or the special financing package, visit www.polyhomes.com, call 604-973-0298 or drop by the presentation centre at 2517 Mountain Highway, open daily except Fridays between noon and 6 p.m.

Property Transfer Tax and other taxes charged on a property purchase Property Transfer Tax (PTT) is a registration tax that applies to all property transfers and is paid to the Government of BC. The tax is 1% on the first $200,000 and 2% on the remainder. First-time home buyers may qualify for an exemption, depending on the purchase price of their home. On April 1, 2013, the 12% Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) in BC was replaced by the 5% federal Goods and Services Tax (GST). The GST applies on the purchase of a new home after March 31, 2013. In addition, a 2% BC Transition Tax may apply to

the purchase of a new home where construction or substantial renovation is at least 10% complete as of April 1, 2013, and ownership or possession of the new housing transfers before April 1, 2015. The 2% BC Transition Tax does NOT apply to sales of vacant land, new commercial units or REALTORÂŽ commissions. The 5% GST is also paid on services relating to the purchase or sale of a home, such as commissions, moving costs, appraisals and legal fees. ~ The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board

September housing market shows marked improvement over last year’s historical lows SURREY, BC – The Fraser Valley real estate market continues to edge closer to typical activity levels as September saw the largest year-over-year increase in property sales this year to date. The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board processed 1,131 sales on its Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in September, an increase of 32 per cent compared to the 857 sales processed during the same month last year and 10 per cent fewer than processed in August. Ron Todson, President of the Board, explains, “It is good news however, it’s important to put the increase into context. Our home sales in September went from the worst in 10

years to just below our 10-year average. “It can take a year or more for the market to recover from regulatory changes such as last year’s tightening of mortgage rules introduced by the federal government. Although we are seeing evidence of first-time home buyers returning to the market, we have to keep in mind that it is more challenging now for them to get financing, so although we’re witnessing a recovery to a balanced market it is gradual.” Todson adds, “An improvement in our sales in the Fraser Valley has not translated to an increase in home prices because inventory levels have

either kept pace or depending on the property type and community are elevated. “Your REALTOR® can provide specifics for your area, for example there is 12 months of condo inventory right now in White Rock/South Surrey, 5 months of inventory for single family homes in North Delta and only 3 and a half months of townhouse inventory in Langley. Real estate is local so to understand your market, talk to an expert.” In September, the benchmark price of single family detached homes in the Fraser Valley was $552,900, a 0.6 per cent increase compared to $549,500 during the same month last year.

Dix complaint to RCMP leads to investigation

Ethnic vote scandal probed

White Rock Farmers’ Market SUMMER MARKETS

Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – A special prosecutor has been appointed to assess possible charges related to the BC Liberal party’s ethnic voter outreach efforts last year. The RCMP and the criminal justice branch revealed Thursday that they are investigating a complaint of possible violations of the Election Act made in August. NDP Leader Adrian Dix then announced that he made the complaint in a letter to police. Vancouver lawyer David Butcher has been appointed to assess the potential for charges arising out of former B.C. government staffers’ plans to use government resources to build support for the BC Liberal party before the May election. Dix said in a statement the complaint related to allegations the NDP made in the legislature in July. Documents released after the election included an email from former government staffer Brian Bonney suggesting that a contractor be offered a job to keep her from releasing information damaging to Premier Christy Clark and the party. Bonney left his government communications job days before a draft version of the ethnic outreach plan was leaked to the NDP in February. Clark’s former deputy chief of staff, who distributed the plan, resigned along with another staffer, and RichmondSteveston MLA John Yap quit his cabinet post as minister of state for multiculturalism. Clark’s spokesman Ben Chin said Thursday the government will “co-operate fully” with the investigation. A review of the

Small businesses are worried about unknown costs and the onerous workload they may face under MMBC’s model, Klassen said. “Imagine what it would be like for a small restaurant with their name on the pizza box – they have to track all the weight and the amount of paper that they distribute with those pizzas they deliver and remit fees on a regular basis.� Small businesses have been asked to sign contracts without knowing what the final fee schedule will be, he added. “No small business in their right mind would sign that contract,� Klassen said. “This is the biggest issue we’ve seen come in from calls from our members in several years.� MMBC has said it will take more time to determine the costs of the program and how to apportion them –  and it will exempt businesses with revenues of less than $750,000 – but many businesses fear the request that they trust the new agency amounts to signing a blank cheque.

Deadline extended for disclosing expenditures

MLAs discuss expenses Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – MLAs’ constituency assistants from across B.C. crowded into the idle B.C. legislative chamber last week to get up to speed on new financial reporting requirements for their office expenses. Provincial politicians have been working to open up their expense reporting since a 2012 report by former Auditor General John Doyle exposed “pervasive deficiencies” in that and other areas of the legislature’s $70 million operating budget. The first steps after that report were to begin disclosing MLA expense totals on a quarterly basis, and to begin holding meetings of the longsecret Legislative Assembly Management Committee in public. That committee met Sept. 24 and agreed to extend the deadline to begin detailed expense disclosure from constituency offices from Jan. 1 to April 1. In addition to base pay of more than $101,000 a year and an expense account for travel and accommodation, MLAs receive a constituency allowance of $119,000 a year, mainly for staff and office space. Juan de Fuca MLA John Horgan told the committee he is “absolutely in favour” of disclosing detailed information, but more time is needed, especially with 32 new MLAs elected in May. That means new constituency staff learning accounting procedures on the job, while also learning to handle day-today concerns of constituents, many of whom are “in distress,” he said. The committee supported Horgan’s motion to make the first detailed report public April 1, covering the period from Jan. 1 to the end of the provincial fiscal year. MLAs are also preparing to begin detailed disclosure of their personal travel and other expenses. Expense payments to MLAs include a “capital city allowance,”

for which most MLAs who live outside Greater Victoria claim $1,000 a month without receipts. With receipts, out-of-town MLAs can claim up to $19,000 a year for rent, mortgage or hotel accommodation while in Victoria on legislature business. MLAs are also eligible for $61 a day for meals while in Victoria on legislature business. During discussion of the legislature’s total budget, clerk Craig James told the committee there would be substantial savings this year because the scheduled fall session was cancelled. The cost for extra staff and services for one sitting day is about $30,000.

Organic-recycling exemption eyed for apartments Jeff Nagel Black Press

Residents of some older apartment buildings may not have to obey Metro Vancouver’s directive to separate all organic food waste starting in 2015. The regional district’s zero-waste committee voted last week to let member cities exempt specific apartment buildings when the organics disposal ban in place for regular houses extends to multifamily residential. Diverting organic waste is a key plank in Metro’s plan to reach at least 70 per cent recycling but local cities increasingly admit it’s too difficult for older apartment buildings without space for specialized bins. The recommendation, which still needs Metro board approval, is part of a proposed bylaw to block garbage exports that regional planners have revived after a previous version was rejected Sept. 5. Residents in exempted multifamily buildings would continue to toss their food waste in the garbage, which would be taken to a material recovery facility (MRF) that would use various technologies to extract the organics and other recyclables. Since apartments have dismal recycling rates of around 15 per cent – dragging down the regional average – it’s thought that mixed-waste MRFs may retrieve more usable material that will otherwise be dumped or incinerated, so Metro has agreed to let private firms build and run the automated plants. “Eighty-five per cent of the plastic, metal and paper that could be recovered isn’t being recovered,” Vancouver Coun. Andrea Reimer said. She sees MRFs as critical to quickly diverting more material to recycling so that Metro doesn’t build a bigger garbage incinerator than necessary. The region is in the midst of procuring a controversial new waste-to-energy plant and Reimer has been exploring ways to minimize its size or avoid building it altogether. “Once the incinerator is built there will be no way to go to more

If apartment waste is diverted for now to a MRF, she said, it won’t be calculated as part of the garbage needing disposal in determining the final size of a future WTE plant, currently estimated at 370,000 tonnes per year. “We don’t see the MRF concept as damaging our ability to source separate in the long

term.” The proposed waste control bylaw would require all garbage to go to regional facilities, blocking shipments to out-of-region landfills where tipping fees are far lower and Metro bans on dumping recyclables don’t apply. Metro planners say a trickle of waste now being trucked out of region threatens to turn into a flood, bleeding

the regional district of tipping-fee revenue that underpins the entire garbage and recycling system. The retooled bylaw, expected to come back before Metro in the weeks ahead, will plug one loophole that would have let residue from MRFs be dumped outside the region. Metro will also ask the province for the power to ticket MRFs for rule violations. Pitt Meadows Mayor Deb Walters previously voted against the flowcontrol bylaw but now says her concerns have been addressed. Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan said the multifamily organics exemption, which would be reviewed after five years, is an acceptable compromise. “That’s the price I’m willing to pay to avoid the bypassing of waste out of our region to facilities that are simply

landfilling it.” But Port Moody Coun. Rick Glumac

opposed the changes. He said enforcement provisions are too

Lions Gate to get secondary treatment to meet standard

Cost of new Metro sewage plant pegged at $560m Jeff Nagel Black Press

Metro Vancouver’s planned new Lions Gate sewage treatment plant won’t include many bells and whistles like a once-mooted wedding chapel. And the plant replacement project will stop at secondary treatment – not the more advanced tertiary treatment demanded by environmental groups – in the name of saving money. “There’s no water slides, no wedding chapels,” Metro utilities committee chair Darrell Mussatto said, but added there may be a very large farmable green roof and some public art. He said the design, picked from three short-listed options, is “basically finalized” – subject to further public input. And all of the region is expected to share to some degree in the $560-million estimated cost, which is up from an initial $400 million.

Metro Vancouver’s new Lions Gate treatment plant is planned for North Vancouver. It’s the first of two big sewage plants Metro must upgrade from primary treatment – basic screening and skimming – to reduce ocean pollution and meet new federal standards. The Metro board must still decide how costs will be apportioned, but staff are proposing that some be spread onto taxpayers outside the North Shore and City of Vancouver benefiting area, where sewage fees would otherwise soar by hundreds of dollars. Mussatto said the proposed design ensures the odour from

ARE YOU NEW IN TOWN or recently had a baby?

the new plant will be “totally contained” to protect neighbours in North Vancouver District’s Norgate area. Georgia Strait Alliance executive director Christianne Wilhelmson, who sits on an advisory committee on behalf of environmental groups, is still pushing for a design that allows future upgrades to more advanced treatment methods and recovery of resources. “Technology is changing,” she said. “What’s most important to us is eliminating emerging endocrinedisrupting chemicals as

well as a broad range of pharmaceuticals.” Wilhelmson said secondary treatment recovers at best half of those chemicals, which can change the hormonal development of fish and add to the contamination of marine mammals. But Mussatto said high-end tertiary treatment that would discharge very safe effluent to Burrard Inlet could have driven the Lions Gate price tag over $1 billion. “It’s too costprohibitive at this point to do that,” he said. Even at the lower cost using secondary treatment – which Ottawa now requires – Metro is still counting on large senior government grants. “If we don’t get the federal and provincial cost-sharing we will not be able to build this.” Metro also expects to pay $1 billion to upgrade its Iona wastewater treatment plant, which discharges to the ocean between

zone two kilometres east of the old one. Mussatto said Metro is negotiating with the

Squamish Nation for a right-of-way through reserve land to connect to the outfall.

Premier speaks to delegates about natural gas at UBCM

B.C. pulling ahead on LNG, Clark says Black Press

VANCOUVER – Premier Christy Clark used her recent speech to the local government convention to persuade delegates that her government’s liquefied natural gas export plan is becoming reality, and communities will share in the proceeds. Clark said the consortium of Chevron and Apache Corp. has already spent $800 million on site preparations for its proposal to pipe gas from northeast B.C. shale formations to the North Coast. “They have literally moved a mountain,” Clark said. “They have 500 people working on this project here in British Columbia, and they’re just one company.” Another indication came from her meeting with the council from tiny Port Edward, which had no municipal land sales for 12 years. So far this year $2 million has been paid to purchase land, with another $2 million expected by the end of 2013, she said. None of the half-dozen international bidders for LNG projects has reached a final decision on financing, but the first ones are expected by next year. That puts B.C. ahead of any U.S. plan to export its abundant shale gas, Clark said after her Sept. 20 speech. Communities such as Kitimat, the main port, and Fort Nelson, centre of gas production and processing, are already feeling the pressures of intense industrial development. Convention workshops discussed the problem of “shadow populations,” mainly hundreds of remote work camps that set up outside municipal borders but still use airports, garbage dumps and other services. Northern communities get no taxes and little commercial benefit from the camps, and workers fly in and out without ever visiting the communities. Some mayors said their trip to Vancouver and back for the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention was made more difficult because flights are booked up by construction and gas workers. Clark announced

a new “LNG-Buy B.C.” program intended to connect multinational companies such

as Shell and Korea Gas with local suppliers. She also gave Forests,

Lands and Natural Resources Minister Steve Thomson a new job, responsible for rural

development and reversing decades of falling population in rural communities.
