Program offers small loans for those unable to pay for shelter

Insufficient funds at Sources Rent Bank Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Bruce Foster isn’t sure what became of the woman who asked for financial help from Sources Rent Bank a couple of weeks ago. As team lead for the program, Foster answered the phone when the woman called to apply for a short-term micro-loan after receiving an eviction notice from her landlord. The order to vacate was delivered because she

had fallen behind on her rent while waiting for medical-leave employment insurance and rental-assistance payments to kick in. “She needed help to bridge the gap,” Foster said Friday from the rent bank’s Newtonbased office. “Unfortunately, we weren’t able to do that. We just don’t have the funding now to help, when normally we would have been helping her. It’s those types of situations that are very difficult.”

The Sources Rent Bank launched in January 2010 to bridge exactly those kinds of gaps, and has met the need many times since – providing 176 loans totalling $147,000 to eligible residents in Surrey, Delta, White Rock, New Westminster and Langley; the funds have helped keep a roof over the heads of more than 400 people. This year, the rent bank ran out of funds less than halfway through the year.

“There’s been such a need, we maxed out,” said Denise Darrell, Sources’ director of women, seniors and community services. “We’ve given out all that we can.” The situation has been dire since mid-May, when the number of loans (47, totalling approximately $37,000) provided in 2013 doubled that given to eligible low-income clients in all of 2012. i see page A4

About 1,000 fundraisers took part in this year’s Pumpkin Run. Counterclockwise from lower left: step-sisters Bailey Goddard and Samantha Berringer, both 10, stretch; Heather Sutherland leads the five-kilometre warm-up; runners ‘Gertrude’ and ‘Beatrice’ keep pace; and the one-km portion sets off.

Runners and walkers young and old – many of them wearing costumes – took to the streets of White Rock Sunday morning, raising more than $75,000 for Peace Arch Hospital’s emergency ward. The Great Pumpkin Run/Walk is an annual event of the Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation, featuring oneand five-kilometre routes, along with prizes for best costume, top finishers and top fundraisers. In its seventh year, the run/walk drew close to 1,000 participants. A final fundraising tally was not available by Peace Arch News deadline Monday, as donations were continuing to come in. The top finisher in the men’s 5K race may sound like a familiar name to some. Robert Durrant was first across the line for the second year in a row, with a time of 19 minutes, 13 seconds. The top woman finisher was Cathy Giles, with a time of 23:48. Two youths tied for first place in the one-kilometre run: Garrett Bioch and Sofia Yarmoshuk. For one competitor, crossing the finish line had particular meaning. Debbie Dillon trained for the event with the Live Well Exercise Clinic, and told run organizers that as recently as February she couldn’t even walk. Sunday, Dillon finished her five-kilometre route with a sprint across the finish line. – Tracy Holmes

Defence calls for anonymity

Killer sentenced as adult Kevin Diakiw

A Surrey courtroom erupted in cheers Thursday as the killer of 15-yearold Laura Szendrei was sentenced to life in prison, serving his time as an adult. The next day, provincial court Justice Robin Baird ruled the young Delta man – who was a week shy of his 18th birthday when he killed Szendrei in a brazen daytime attack in 2010 – will be jailed in a federal adult penitentiary, with no possibility of parole for seven years from the time he was charged in 2011. “He was on the very threshold of adulthood,” Baird said. Baird said he was taking into account the “devastation the accused has wreaked upon the Laura Szendrei family” and the effect the murder has had on the public. “The public has every right to the security and longterm protection from this offender,” Baird said. “In short, Crown has satisfied me that a youth sentence would not be sufficient.” The killer hung his head when the judge issued the sentence to be served in a federal penitentiary. Despite being sentenced as an adult, the now-21year-old still has his identity protected until the judge

Szendrei’s mother, Rachel, said it’s one of her greatest wishes that the accused be named. She called the life sentence to be served as an adult a “no-brainer,” adding it’s the only punishment that comes close to fitting his crime. Asked if the healing for the family can now begin, Rachel Szendrei said full healing will never come. Laura’s father, Mike, said he’s glad he no longer has to come to court and explain to

the press how he’s doing. Grandmother Betty Rotaro said the murder has been a harrowing experience for the family. “We can’t even say (Laura’s) name any more,” she said, adding the pain is too deep. As to the sentence, Rotaro said “he got what he deserved.” Szendrei, a student at North Delta’s Burnsview Secondary, died after being attacked on a pathway in Mackie Park near 110 Street and 82 Avenue on Sept. 25, 2010. Her killer pleaded guilty to seconddegree murder last October.

Surrey man registers .com domain name and links to anti-inoculation message

‘Fraser Health’ website jabs vaccination Jeff Nagel Black Press

Fraser Health officials say they’re taking no action after a website with a similar address to the health authority’s began redirecting traffic to an anti-vaccination site. Unlike Fraser Health website, the domain is owned by Surrey resident Jessie Bains, who set it to redirect to the site It warns parents that vaccines contain “toxic chemicals and dangerous biological agents” – claims broadly rejected by public health authorities. “I don’t like vaccinations myself and that’s

all I can say,” Bains said Thursday when asked about his motivation. “I think people should have the choice.” He declined further comment. is run by Colorado father Jeffry John Aufderheide, who claims his son is “vaccine-injured” with severe developmental delays. Aufderheide said he had no knowledge of the redirect. “What we do is encourage parents to look at the vaccine ingredients, what’s being injected into their children, to look at the adverse reactions that can come from vaccines,” he said.

Fraser Health medical health officer Dr. Michelle Murti said the health authority had not had any complaints about the .com web address and said she believes most people find the correct .ca site through web searches. Fraser officials have warned in the past that anti-vaccination sentiment can reduce the immunity of the population in some areas and increase the risk of disease spread. That’s believed to have been a factor in the recent measles outbreak of seven confirmed cases. “We had a cluster of measles in Fraser east that was largely in a community that does not believe in vaccination,” Murti said, referring to the Abbotsford-Chilliwack area.

“Fortunately, the illness that we’ve seen there has been mostly contained to that community.” Murti called the Fraser region’s vaccination rate “quite high,” with 80 per cent or more of children in school in most of the region having all required immunizations. “There are some areas that can improve,” she said. “Our concern is providing people with good, validated information.” Fraser Health officials say Bains has not attempted to sell the domain to the health authority. They noted the domain has redirected to various other websites in the past, sometimes linking to the NDP’s website.

Redwood concerns

Councillor critical of NCP vote Alex Browne Staff Reporter

Surrey Coun. Judy Villeneuve says she is among those concerned about the city’s recent approval of the Stage 1 land-use concept for the Grandview Heights Area 4 (now known as Redwood Heights) Neighbourhood Concept Plan. Villeneuve and Coun. Barinder Rasode both voted against the concept when the plan came back to council on Oct. 7. And she says she and Rasode share many of the same concerns about the NCP and the precedent they believe it establishes for development in the city. “I did feel it was premature, because of the environmental sensitivity of the area,” Villeneuve said, adding that an “absurd” longstanding formula for approving new schools would mean the area would be u n d e r- s e r v e d e du c at i on a l l y as well as being Judy Villeneuve expensive to councillor develop and buy homes in. Under the NCP, Redwood Heights – a predominantly rural area between 16 Avenue and 32 Avenue, bounded by 176 Street and 184 Street – would be opened up for high-density residential development. According to the NCP, high-density areas would transition to low density within the same plan, while a wildlife corridor and ‘hub’ would be preserved and parks, watercourse areas and other green space would be provided. “The planning is well done, and (staff and the owners’ group) are making an effort to address the environmental issues,” Villeneuve said. But she added she sees plans that have been in place much longer for other areas – including Newton and Cloverdale – that have not been brought forward as far or as fast. i see page A4

Church champions suddenly high-profile victim

Human-trafficking case ‘very typical’ Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

The nanny at the centre of a ground-breaking human-trafficking case in Vancouver shared some of what she experienced during a program last weekend at Sunnyside United Church in South Surrey. Rev. Stuart Lyster said Leticia Sarmiento’s attendance at the ‘The Other is My Neighbour’ event drew about 30 people to the 24 Avenue church Saturday afternoon. She had confirmed Wednesday – one day after her former employer was sentenced to 18 months in jail for fraud, unauthorized employment of a foreign national and misrepresentation – that she would be there. “We’re trying to become more relevant to the migrant community that is in South Surrey, who are working here and need support,” Lyster said of the reason for Saturday’s program, which centred on the topic of human migration. “The church is involved in trying to get the people like Leticia being seen as people, not as economic units.” According to court documents, Sarmiento was born in the Philippines, and came to Canada in September 2008 with Franco Yiu Kwan Orr and his family. He had employed her as a domestic worker in Hong Kong for a year prior and told Sarmiento that if she came to Canada with the family, she would work eight hours a day strictly as a nanny and be paid as required

by Canadian law. He also promised that once she had been in Canada for two years, he would help her become a permanent resident, the documents state. But in his reasons for sentence, Justice Richard Goepel found Sarmiento “was misled as to her working conditions, salary and her opportunity to stay permanently in Canada.” Her job at Orr’s Canadian home included cooking and cleaning; she was paid less than what she was entitled to under B.C. law; and, Orr provided false information in support of Sarmiento’s Temporary Resident Visa application. Lyster – who was among church members who offered Sarmiento support through the court process – described what happened to

Sarmiento prior to her calling police on her employer in June 2010 as “very typical.” “What was atypical was this is the first time anywhere in the world that an employer – like a garden-variety employer, just a homeowner – has been convicted and sentenced for human trafficking,” Lyster said. “Turns out, she has rights. This is the first time when the courts have recognized it should not be the person being criminalized, it should be the employer, because they hold all the cards.” Sarmiento also told attendees at the church about her previous experiences working overseas, which included jobs in Saudi Arabia and Lebanon. Her work for Orr in Hong Kong was “according to contract,” Lyster said, noting 4,800 people leave the Philippines daily on such contracts and “75 per cent of the time it’s a good thing.” Lyster described Sarmiento as “still shellshocked” from her experience in Canada and the media attention it has generated. Representatives from Migrante BC – a community-based organization committed to the protection and promotion of the rights of Filipino immigrants and migrant workers – attended the Sunnyside United gathering. And Lyster is taking his human-migration presentation to the First United Church in Summerland this weekend.

Fatal-crash trial to resume New evidence in the case of dump-truck driver Glen Theriault resulted in a five-week trial delay. Theriault is charged with dangerous driving causing death, after a 2011 head-on collision on 16 Avenue killed South Surrey resident Jim Neiss. In Surrey Provincial Court earlier this month, on what was to be the eighth day of proceedings, Theriault’s lawyer, Rishi Gill, asked for time to review new photographs and video taken of the roadway.

“We’re not sure, quite literally, what to make of it,” Gill told Judge Paul Dohm. “(We’re) trying to piece together how we’re going to apply this, if at all.” Oct. 7 had been set for re-examination of an expert witness to clarify familiarity with the stretch of road and its possible role in the collision. Gill apologized to Neiss’s wife, Brenda Michie, for the delay. The trial is set to continue Nov. 12. – Tracy Holmes

Colourful murals capturing snippets of the past could soon be adorning White Rock’s cityowned and private walls. Mosaics – patterns of stone, tile or glass – are another form of public art being eyed to spruce up various exterior ‘canvases’ throughout the city, along with green and relief walls. Ideas for what would be the best fit were discussed Thursday during a forum on decorative wall art hosted by the city at the White Rock Community Centre. Attended by more than three dozen people – including several local artists – the evening was highlighted by a presentation by White Rock-born muralist Richard Tetrault. Tetrault, who has collaborated with artists in Mexico, Cuba, Argentina and Canada, showcased some of the wall-art projects he has been part of, including a number co-ordinated for the Eastside Mural Tour. Gasps of appreciation met a slideshow detailing painting that graces the exterior of Vancouver’s Russian Hall. The work, on Campbell Avenue, transformed three walls – about 6,000 square feet – to resemble a decorative


music box. A piece called Through the Eye of the Raven, painted in 2010, covers a six-storey wall of the Orwell Hotel on East Hastings Street. It’s visible from across town, Tetrault noted, explaining the different aspects of the aboriginal-themed work. Tetrault said a Commercial Drive wall that was transformed in 2002 with 12-foot-diameter mosaics is an example of how public art can change more than just the look of a wall. “It really changed people’s habits of walking on the street… really revitalized this area of Commercial Drive,” he said. Forum attendee Jane Kline said she thinks the idea of increasing such art in White Rock is a “great idea.” “Love it,” Kline said. Kline told others that visitors she introduced to White Rock this past summer as a volunteer tour guide were enthralled by existing murals they were shown, including The Whaling Wall on Russell Avenue and a mural by Elizabeth Hollick that graces the north wall of Blue Frog Studio on Johnston Road. With more works, “we could attract many, many people… to this little jewel,” Kline said. Costs of various new projects

depend on size and medium, with maintenance costs likely to be highest for “green” walls that feature living things, such as flowers, shrubs and small trees. Claire Halpern, the city’s manager of cultural development, said one of the biggest challenges with public art is “not everybody’s going to love it.” Leisure services manager Eric Stepura said the city will work with property owners to rejuvenate “tired” walls, but if they’re not interested “we’ll look at other alternatives.” Asked if the city is considering developing a policy that would require developers to contribute to a mural fund, Mayor Wayne Baldwin said no, but pointed to the density bonus/amenity contribution policy that was passed by council in April. It implements a flat rate for developers who want to build taller than three storeys in the town centre. Those funds aren’t earmarked for such projects, but could benefit them, Baldwin said. The mayor added that the city already has a public-art fund established that currently has about $150,000 and, when asked if sponsors will be sought for whatever wall projects are decided on, said “oh, yes.”

A nod to consumers


he federal government brought down its speech from the throne on Wednesday, and as advance reports suggested, it focused on the best interests of Canadian consumers. This is clearly designed with the 2015 federal election in mind, but it is a much-needed focus all the same. Canadians pay far too much for basic items, and given that most of us are not getting wage increases, it’s getting harder and harder to pay the bills. While the federal government can’t singlehandedly force businesses to lower prices, it can open up sectors to more competition in several key areas under its control. These include the telephone, cable television, Internet and credit card industries. Lack of competition means Canadians pay high prices for cellphone service, particularly for extras like roaming charges and data plans. The big-three companies control almost all of the market and have shown little willingness to lower prices. On the cable-television front, consumers are forced to pay a lot of extra money for channels they don’t watch, and also often pay expensive bundled charges for cable and Internet service. In these two areas alone, consumers are forced to pay out more every year, leading to an erosion of their ability to buy other goods and services. Banks charge businesses excessive fees for the ability to accept payment by credit card. This adds to retail prices. The federal government also needs to look into whether marketing boards benefit consumers. The main effect of such boards is to double prices for goods like milk and cheese, as compared to the United States. There is a slim indication that the feds may be willing to take on the powerful dairy farmers’ lobby, as a free-trade deal with the European Union is on the horizon, and it allows for more cheese to be imported into Canada. The federal government can also look in its own backyard when it comes to reducing costs to consumers. It can stop levying GST on other taxes, as it does with fuel. Tax should be paid on goods or services, not on other taxes. Ottawa can also look at reducing high airport surcharges on travellers. The main effect of those charges, including security charges, airport taxes and other costs, is to drive Canadian air travellers to adjacent U.S. airports. The taxes are self-defeating, but they are also punitive to those who continue to fly from Canadian airports.

So far this week you’ve said…

yes 31% no 69% 225 responding

When the federal government announced a study to determine what spilled bitumen would do in North Coast waters, that too was attacked by the Green Party as a secret scheme to prop up Enbridge’s pipeline proposal. So it’s a scandal when you don’t know the answers, and it’s a scandal when you try to find them. Another question that gets little attention is whether it’s better for spilled oil to sink rather than wash up on beaches. Crude oil is, if you’ll pardon the expression, organic. Spills produce a huge spike in oil-eating bacteria that leads to an increase in fish populations at a certain stage. This was documented in a 1994 book called Degrees of Disaster, written by an expert who stayed on in Valdez for four years, long after the TV cameras and grandstanding politicians went home. Victoria-based Dogwood seized on a 2012 Nuka study done for the Haisla Nation at Kitimat, which found that in ocean conditions that are present more than half of the time, there would be no immediate way to respond to a spill at sea. Dogwood’s “no tankers campaign director” hinted that this information was intentionally left out of the B.C. government study, and the media ate it up. No tankers? Better check again. Dogwood’s mission is clearly not to protect the B.C. coast from oil spills. If it were, they would be protesting the ongoing risk from Alaska tankers.

Tolerance reinterpreted Editor: Re: ‘Social injustice’ as student indoctrination, Oct. 15 column. Columnist Tom Fletcher has seen a lot in his long career as a journalist in B.C. He probably remembers how the BCTF and other unions fought for pay equity for women. He might even remember the protests that greeted B.C. teachers at their annual general meeting in the 1990s when we voted to support Gay Straight Alliances and safe schools for all kids. He also knows about the work we have done to promote aboriginal education enhancement agreements, employment equity for aboriginal teachers and various anti-racism programs. Every single one of those things falls under what we call “social justice.” But somehow, Fletcher found an odd, outdated, angry way to turn the work teachers do to promote tolerance, fairness and personal responsibility into a dirty word. No, Mr. Fletcher, teachers do not “indoctrinate” students. In our classrooms, we work hard to educate our students in a way that lets them explore the world around them, ask questions, and come to their own conclusions. Jim Iker, BC Teachers’ Federation

we will not be proud of enough to say, “you see what we can do?” Unfortunately, we seem to have gotten to the stage where everything these days is subject to some kind of toll – not that I agree with all of them – but it does spread the tax base more equitably by ‘user pay.’ Look at the Port Mann Bridge, are we not now happy with it in its function? I am. Ivan Scott, Surrey

Different blasts for the birds

Editor: Re: Politicians endorse bigger pay boost, Oct. 10. Great, now we have city staff recommending how much taxpayers should pay elected representatives. First, overseeing a city the size of White Rock is much like overseeing a hotdog stand. Therefore they should, in my estimation, be paid accordingly. The solution is this; have council strike a task force to investigate and come back with an informed recommendation. Oh wait, one council tried that and the task force came back with a recommendation that they deserved minimal pay increase – sorta blew up in their faces. Next thing you know, council passed a bylaw and gave themselves a raise anyway. I really am getting tired of politicians getting carried away with their own self importance. Barry Gaudin, White Rock

Editor: Yes, it’s that time of year, folks. The farmers’ cannons have basically stopped blasting their loud explosions across the bay from Delta to Crescent Beach, and now officially the hunters have taken over. We now have the distinct pleasure starting from the early-morning hours listening to the sound of defenseless birds getting slaughtered by shotguns. It’s really fun trying to explain to our grandkids what those sounds mean. These birds land in our area to rest and feed, on their way south, in what looks like a great refuge – only to die from a blast of pellets tearing their bodies apart. Thanks, Delta, for sharing, and isn’t it time to move those disturbing noises at least somewhere where it isn’t

Importance raised

Better ways to save paper Editor: Am I the only one? My cable company wants to charge for a paper bill. My telephone company wants to charge for a paper bill. My gas company wants to charge for a paper bill. My electrical company wants to charge for a paper bill. My bank wants to charge for a paper bill. My credit-card company wants to charge for a paper bill. I feel like Don Quixote must have when he was tilting at windmills. My ‘windmill’ is the assumption that everyone has a computer and is knowledgeable in online security. Now to the crux of the matter. Not everyone wants/needs/has a computer. Internet is not free in the area I live in. I do not have a free computer to read my statements whenever I need to. I don’t have a computer to print out a statement I require a hard copy of. All of the paper bills generally contain a couple of pages of glossy ads for other services/products. If the companies really wanted to save trees – as they tell us is the reason to go electronic – they could print their bills on recycled paper and not include any enclosures. In the meantime, quit bugging me to opt out and go paperless. Mike Baynes, Surrey

Warn readers this is dangerous Editor: Re: Tour of the track, Oct. 15. I was amazed to see a photo of a man taking a picture of a train while squatting in the middle of the track, and this paper puts it in the front page and not in the editorial section on rail safety. The front page reports on officials from the City of White Rock and BNSF Railway touring the line in efforts to discuss how to improve safety to the people of White Rock and its visitors, and this photo is right beside it. That photo you published sends a mixed message on the importance of rail safety, especially when it looks like you are endorsing the actions of the train photographer and his disregards to his own safety.

A head-on shot of a train on the tracks is amazing, but the photographer put others in danger if the train had gotten too close. It’s hard to tell in the photo how far the newspaper’s photographer, the man and the train are apart from each other, but this paper should be stressing the importance of rail safety and the issue of trains through White Rock, not send mixed messages to the public. This topic has been in the paper for the last four months, and this reader wonders why Peace Arch News has not been placing ads on the importance of rail safety when all the paper had to do was contact Operation Lifesaver – a national organization on rail safety – and gotten all the media this paper needed to create the ads.

Surrey resident aids person in distress


SkyTrain ‘hero’ helps man Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Heading to the Vancouver Canucks game against the Montreal Canadiens, Brian Fleetwood was excited as he travelled with his brother-in-law to the Scott Road SkyTrain station. When the pair got there, it was about 5:30 p.m. Oct. 12. Fleetwood noticed there was a person in medical distress on the train tracks. The man was bleeding heavily after hitting his head Fleetwood, 38, jumped in after him, only considering mid-jump that it might not be the best idea to leap onto a SkyTrain track. His first thought was that he might get electrocuted. “I actually didn’t think about it until I was in mid-air between the platform and the track, and then I thought to myself, ‘I sure hope this doesn’t hurt’,” Fleetwood said from his home on Gabriola Island. “But I was already committed.” Upon landing, Fleetwood’s first concern was for the man, who began to have a seizure. Simultaneously, Fleetwood worried about

Crabber found Robert Mangelsdorf Black Press

Delta Police have found the body of 43-year-old Cory Fergus, who disappeared earlier this month while retrieving crab traps in Boundary Bay. Canadian authorities were notified after the US Coast Guard found the body of an adult male in U.S. waters. Delta Police investigators joined the Canadian Coast Guard in a hovercraft to recover the body. Police do not suspect foul play. Fergus was reported missing at 4:30 p.m. on Oct. 7, but was last seen the night before at about 5:30 p.m. He left a friend’s residence in Tsawwassen and was believed to be heading to the Centennial Beach area of Tsawwassen to take his boat out and retrieve his crab traps. Fergus had not been heard from since. Police located his unoccupied vehicle parked at the boat ramp at Centennial Beach and conducted searches in waters all the way to White Rock but came up empty. The search was called off Oct. 9 after his empty canoe was located.

He was down on the track for about 10 minutes, which he said felt much longer. Fleetwood then lifted the injured

man off the tracks and onto the platform. He was still confused, unable to tell Fleetwood his age or where he was going. He even said the blood on the tracks was not his. Paramedics took over and got the man the medical help he needed. “Adrenaline and instinct just took over,” said Fleetwood, who has Level 1 first-aid training. “I guess I just would really hope that if I was laying face down on the tracks in a pool of blood that somebody would be quick to respond to me.” Fleetwood was in town visiting family for the Thanksgiving Day holiday. At the end of his evening Saturday, the Canucks had lost 4-0 to Montreal, but Fleetwood acknowledges his height of excitement occurred well before the game. Fleetwood’s sister, Kathryn Chouinard, said he is nothing less than a hero. “I am thankful for my brother Brian,” she said. “He is a true hero and we are so proud of him.”

Three teens struck by motorcycle in September

Crash victim released Kevin Diakiw Black Press

A girl who was hit by a motorcycle a few weeks ago near Princess Margaret Secondary is now out of the hospital and nursing head and pelvis injuries. Three teens were crossing 128 Street near 69 Avenue Sept. 18 when they were struck by a motorcycle. Amarpeet Sivia, 16, was killed in the accident, while her two friends were taken to hospital. One was released right away, while another stayed until last week, when she was released. The motorcyclist received relatively minor injuries, was treated

Trial set in knife attack A man accused of slicing another man repeatedly with a knife during an altercation in White Rock last February is to stand trial on the charges next spring. According to court information, the case against Patrick Anthony Blake will be heard April 16 and 17 in Surrey Provincial Court. A trial confirmation hearing is set for March 6. Blake is charged with assault with a weapon, uttering threats and assault causing bodily harm. Const. Janelle Shoihet told Peace Arch News in April that an incident between two men took place in the 15400-block of Marine Drive on Feb. 22. It’s alleged one man lashed out when he was asked to leave. The unnamed victim, 40, needed stitches for deep cuts to his hands, several cuts to his fingers and a gash to the right side of his jaw, Shoihet said.

and released immediately. Police said this week it is still too early in the investigation to say whether speed was a factor in the accident. In wake of the crash, there was a new call for a crosswalk at that location and Surrey is now examining such plans. In July 2011, the City of Surrey embarked on a study of the engineering requirements of all school areas within the city. That included the strip along 128 Street that serves Kwantlen Polytechnic University and Princess Margaret Secondary, where the collision occurred. The study concluded that

a crosswalk would be needed just south of 72 Avenue on 128 Street, according to Surrey’s general manager of engineering Vincent LaLonde. The study found there was a high amount of pedestrian traffic at 72 Avenue – where there’s a lighted crossing – and also at 70 Avenue. Both have commercial areas that attract students. The determination was to build a crosswalk 150 meters south of 72 Avenue in 2014. Anyone who witnessed the September incident who has not yet spoken to police is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604599-0502.

Property owner asks to subdivide White Rock lots

Council wants assurances Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

The owner of two White Rock lots that were recently eyed for a controversial coach-house project is now asking to subdivide the property into three parcels. But concerns remain that coach houses could again be proposed for the site. “He could sign anything, swear on the Bible,� Coun. Grant Meyer told council of assurances the applicant has “no intention� of proposing coach houses again. “I just don’t want an out, just in case there is an uproar.� In presenting a new rezoning request to council Oct. 7, the city’s director of development services noted it was submitted by the owner “out of exasperation,� because council had previously indicated a three-lot project at the site – 14022 and 14034 North Bluff Rd. – would be preferred. No design work has been done and it remains unclear if anything will actually be built, Paul Stanton noted. The application is the third revision from the original, which first

That project was deferred in September of the same year following public feedback, and returned in its first revised form in April 2013. The second revision, with four homes and coach houses, was presented in July. Following a public hearing on Sept. 9, council voted unanimously to deny the

necessary bylaw third reading. Inappropriate density for the area was among concerns cited by council members; density, the impact on green space and “the wall of coach houses along the lane� were cited by opponents who spoke at the public hearing. At the Oct. 7 meeting, Coun. Al Campbell also questioned if coach houses could still be built if the requested zoning amendment to RS-4 Single Unit (12.1m lot width) is approved. Current zoning is RS-1 One Unit Residential. Stanton said while coach houses are permitted in both zones, the owner has indicated he has no plans to go that route. “He would have the right to build whatever is permitted in the RS-4 zone, which includes coach houses.� To eliminate that opportunity, the bylaw would have to be changed to remove the coachhouse option, Stanton said. Council voted unanimously to give first and second readings to the bylaw amendment. A public hearing on the application is expected to take place Nov. 4.

Ocean Cliff raising funds for playground upgrade Sarah Massah Staff Reporter

A South Surrey elementary school is looking for help raising $65,000 to renovate their outdated playground. According to Ocean Cliff Elementary PAC president Tami Hanson, the 22-year-old playground is no longer suitable for the school’s growing student population, and because of its age, it is nearly impossible to find replacement parts. “The final straw was when we had two pieces of our playground removed due to vandalism and wear and tear. Because it is so old, there is no manufacturer that will put a new piece onto an old playground. Our playground is a little bit like a patchwork

Ocean Cliff’s playground is to be replaced. quilt right now,” she said Thursday. After becoming PAC president three years ago, Hanson – who has a seven-year-old daughter and nine-year-old son at the school


– got the ball rolling with other parents to replace the playground. After researching options, the estimated cost was set at $125,000. So far, $60,000 has been raised through fundraising and a $10,000 grant from the Surrey School District – with the initial $20,000 going towards a new sports court – but the small school community cannot foot the bill alone, Hanson said. Adding to the urgency is the recent influx of more than 100 students due to the closing of École Laronde Elementary’s English program. Hanson believes there are many who use the playground and who may not know about the replacement project.

“We know there are grandparents, parents and even people who do not go to the school who use the playground who may not know we are looking to improve it,” she said. “When you’re undertaking something like this, it’s a huge responsibility and the more people who know, the more they understand.” Hanson noted the school will continue hosting fundraisers – including an upcoming skip-a-thon and a zumba-a-thon to be held in January – and she encourages the community to find out more.

South Surrey school plans celebratory open house

Elgin Park marks 20 years


Sarah Massah


Staff Reporter

When Elgin Park Secondary’s first grad class crossed the stage 20 years ago, there were only 96 students tossing their caps in the air. “And we knew all the kids, you know?” recalled longtime teacher Carolyn Pederson. “And we can still – there are only four of us left from the original group – we can still remember those kids quite vividly. It’s amazing.” Now, with the South Surrey school gearing up to celebrate its two decades at 13484 24 Ave., Pederson said a lot has changed, including the number of students – about 265 are in their upcoming grad class. To mark the milestone, students and teachers will host an open house Thursday at 1 p.m., after the students are treated to a pancake breakfast and a talent show. “We’ve got a really great day lined up,” Pederson said. The open house will include a slideshow of EPS over the years, games and a number of demonstrations, with students both past and present expected to attend. The school spirit at Elgin Park is one of the only things that has not changed as the community has evolved, Pederson said. “When we first came to Elgin it was all farmland and there were horses next door,” she said. “I was

PET STORE Since opening its doors in White Rock 16 years ago, Linda Pharmacy is proud to have become an integral part of the community. The pharmacy is often described as having a ‘small town’ feel, with personalized and friendly service that it has become well-known for among its loyal customers. Having been a pharmacist for around 33 years, opening her own store seemed like a natural progression for Linda Bryan, who continues to work behind the counter filling prescriptions and answering questions.

Linda Bryan

ABOUT MY BUSINESS… • Personalized customer service • Complimentary prescription delivery service • Knowledgeable staff • We know many of our customers by name

“It just seemed like the logical next step to take,” said Bryan, who takes great pride in helping her customers. “I’ve met so many wonderful people here in the White Rock & South Surrey area through my business. It’s truly a great community in which to work and play!” In addition to offering knowledgable and courteous service, Linda Pharmacy offers an additional service – free delivery to customers who are unable to pick up their prescriptions. “A lot of patients are unable to make it to the pharmacy to pick up their prescriptions. We are always more than happy to offer this service to them to help make their life a little easier.” Bryan would like to extend her gratitude to all of her loyal customers and welcomes new friendly faces to pop in and say hello. “We appreciate all the business of our current customers and are always very happy to meet new people as well.”

Whether you’re looking for that one-of-a-kind gift or a special something for yourself, Ambiente Gifts, Decor & Design in South Surrey offers a variety of unique products and decorating inspiration from around the world. The South Surrey store is celebrating 10 years in business this year with two new ‘changes’ to the boutique. Andrea Becir and Laura Shovlain took ownership of Ambiente, located at 20-16041 24 Ave., and are so proud to call the store their own. After working at Ambiente for six years, the decorating duo became the proud new owners of Ambiente back in mid-September and are so grateful for the opportunity to showcase their creativity and style. The new responsibility proved to be a natural progression as both also own a thriving interior design business called La Di Da Redesign and Home Staging. “We think our past experience fits perfectly with Ambiente,” said Andrea energetically, whose business partner shares the same enthusiasm. “We have always loved the feel of the store and the amazing pieces and gift ideas you can buy from it,” commented Laura Shovlain. While there is no shortage of decor and gift stores in the area, one would be hard-pressed to find many of the eclectic pieces that put Ambiente on the map. “We search for quality pieces that are unique and original – we also work hard to develop customer relationships,” said Andrea. A passion for retail and an eye for “pretty things” is what puts the service at Ambiente in a league of its own. “With our design background we are able to help people with any interior design needs they may have,” said Laura. “We like meeting new people and the women out here are very stylish – it’s always great when they comment on the store or can find something they really like here. It means we are doing our job.” While Ambiente is known for carrying the popular Pandora line, the boutique has recently also added Thymes bath products to their inventory. Later this month, they will be brining in another new jewelry line called Dyberg Kern. “We are so excited!” said Andrea, also noting that a big event is just around the corner. “Our much-anticipated Christmas opening is the night of Nov. 6. We shut the doors for three days prior and transform the store into a winter wonderland. It’s beautiful!” For more information about Ambiente Gifts, Decor & Design you can email Andrea and Laura at or phone them at 604.541.9314.

The renowned choreographer, who is celebrating more than 20 years in business, is still as passionate as ever about sharing her love of dance with others. “After two decades of teaching and housing a safe, family-friendly haven for dancers young and older, I still love my job,” Loretta says. “I continue to learn from my students and faculty members, who continue to feed my soul and inspire my creativity.” Along with her team of professional dance instructors, Loretta offers high-quality instruction for dancers of all ages in a variety of styles. More than simply a place to learn dance techniques, however, Spiral Dance helps dancers gain strength, creativity, self-confidence and lifelong friendships. “Inside these studio walls is where incredible moments of creativity, vulnerability and connection have happened,” Loretta says. “Where dedication, hard work, team effort and group bonding have made for lifelong memories.” Loretta was honoured to be recognized by the City of White Rock earlier this year with a special acknowledgement from the mayor and council for her artistic contributions to the community. She feels blessed to have shared her love of the arts with so many dancers over the years, and looks forward to welcoming new and returning dancers to her studio for years to come. “I am so grateful for all those who have left their footprints and sweat on the studio floors, walls, mirrors and ballet barres.”

The trendy eyewear store has much to offer, including a vibrant and fresh collection of frames from Europe, fit and measured by professionals for ultimate comfort and style. Debbie Mozelle Designer Optical’s frame-stylists are waiting to assist clients in choosing the right coloured frame for the season. “We choose frames based on your colouring and lifestyle,” owner Debbie Mozelle says. “Honesty is our best policy, and that’s why customers keep coming back.” And for those who think shopping online can save money, Mozelle says the prices for eyewear and contact lenses are about the same as what you find on the Internet, but the big difference is you can see what you buy before you pay, and the staff add the personal touch by adjusting the frame to fit exactly how you like it. “We are licensed opticians, licensed contact lens fitters and licensed sight testing opticians. We have good quality products at reasonable prices and most frame repairs are done on premises.” The combination of hard-working staff, a friendly and fun atmosphere and fair pricing make Debbie Mozelle an obvious choice for glasses. If you’re looking for something different, come in and ask Debbie and the team about new wave front digital technology lenses. “They are the latest product, with virtually no distortion,” Debbie said. “Whatever you are looking for, we will help you find it.” And if the big brand names don’t feature the style you are looking for, why not take a look at Debbie Mozelle’s house-brand frames for men and women. The unique and stylish frames are not available anywhere else. As a way to thank her loyal customers for years of dedication, customers who order eyewear before Nov. 2 will be entered to win one of three trips to Mazatlan, Mexico – the fifth contest of its kind that Debbie Mozelle has awarded over the past several years.

Festivities will include giveaways, draws and door prizes, demonstrations and refreshments. A portion of proceeds from the day will be donated to Equitas Society, a local, non-profit organization formed in 2011 to support disabled soldiers returning from the Afghanistan war, who had their disability benefits dramatically reduced in 2006 under the New Veterans Charter. Equitas Society, which is based in White Rock, is providing the legal disbursement funds for these disabled soldiers to challenge the reduction of their benefits in the court system. Caree’s younger brother, Kevin, was injured in Afghanistan in a non-combat incident in February 2012, while serving for the Canadian armed forces; the important work done by the Equitas Society and the soldiers they are helping is an issue that is near and dear to Caree’s heart. Caree and her team look forward to seeing clients past, present and new at the open house celebrations – those interested in attending can register online at to reserve space.


Among the demonstrations of effective, revolutionary treatments will be the HydraFacial, the perfect facial to refresh and rejuvenate your skin as we head into the holiday season. This advanced skin-care treatment combines dermabrasion and hydration with exfoliation resulting in clearer, more beautiful skin. In one 30 minute HydraFacial procedure, your skin will be cleansed and exfoliated, with blackheads or whiteheads extracted, then hydrated with a combination of antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid (an important building block for firm, plump skin), delivering instant results with no discomfort or downtime. Technicians use a series of different ‘HydroPeel’ tips, which provide exfoliation multiple times with each pass, achieving smooth, even results, painlessly dislodging impurities and providing hydrating skin-care solutions with potent antioxidants. Another of Caree’s highly sought-after treatments is the Ulthera – not a facelift, but an uplift. This non-invasive lifting and toning procedure gradually strengthens and tones your facial skin from deep within, resulting in tighter, firmer, better fitting skin. Results are so incredible that clients elect to get their lower face done only to come back and have their neck or brow done. You can do a little or a lot – your choice. These and other remarkable treatments will be demonstrated on site at New Beauty Institute’s open house Oct. 23 – to find out more, visit ca or call 604-541-8750 today.

Solaj Wellness Centre, which opened its doors on the Semiahmoo Peninsula in August, offers patients a revolutionary treatment option in the fight against aches and pains.

Having heard about Cold Laser Therapy, Niels suggested his mom give it a try in an effort to relieve some of her pain and discomfort. “After she went through her first half-dozen treatments, her range of motion increased and her swelling went down,” Niels said. “In her words, she said, ‘I’ve got my hands back.”

Cold Laser Therapy, described as a ‘breakthrough solution’ for musculoskeletal pain, delivers light energy into interior body cells directly on targeted areas.


Though light therapy is not a new concept in the world of health and wellness – known to be beneficial in treating skin conditions, keeping bones healthy and minimizing depression – Cold Laser Therapy shines a concentrated amount of calibrated wavelengths of light directly onto the affected cells where light would normally not reach.

• Offering revolutionary Cold Laser Therapy

This healthy light energy helps to accelerate the body’s natural healing process at a cellular level.

• Natural, effective method of healing

According to Solaj Wellness Centre co-owner Niels Voll, the treatment has already seen tremendous success in patients suffering from chronic pain conditions – including arthritis – as well as sports-related or other such injuries. Niels was first introduced to the innovative therapy during a dinner conversation he and his wife Maria were having with long time friend and business partner Louba Rapoport and her daughter chiropractor Dr. Melanie Rapoport. Doctor Mel (as they like to call her) explained Cold Laser Therapy as a treatment that might help his mother, who he describes as a “serious arthritis sufferer.”

• Reduced inflammation, restored mobility • Safe, drug free, no side effects

His mother’s experience with the treatment was a huge factor encouraging the four to partner up in opening Solaj Wellness Centre to offer this treatment to people of all ages suffering in the White Rock and South Surrey community. “For some conditions, it’s the only treatment we’ve found that actually heals as opposed to just relieving pain,” he said. And it’s not just for chronic sufferers, he notes. People who have sports injuries, strains and sprains, afflictions such as tendonitis and carpal tunnel have all benefited from Cold Laser Therapy, often healing twice as fast as they would without the treatment. The treatment program is led by chiropractor Dr. Melanie Rapoport (Doctor Mel), who also offers traditional chiropractic services and Active Release Technique® treatments. The treatment is a safe, non-toxic, non-invasive alternative for those who are tired of suffering in pain, with no known negative side effects reported. The team at Solaj Wellness Centre encourage interested patients to visit their informative website at to find out more about this breakthrough therapy, or call the clinic at 604-385-3358 to book a consultation and assessment.

Denturists Gordon Brown and Tanya Little

ABOUT OUR BUSINESS… • We fit, design and manufacture dentures in our in-house laboratory • New patients always welcome • Contact us to schedule your complimentary consultation with one of our registered denturists.


A common problem amongst denture wearers is ill-fitting dentures. Aside from inflammation of the gums and soreness, the wrong fit can lead to poor diet, a lower nutritional intake and a whole host of health and digestive problems. In recent years, there have been countless advancements in denture technology – denture implants have become the way of the future, according to registered denturist Tanya Little. The owner of Envision Denture and Implant Centre in South Surrey at 104 - 2055 152 St. says there’s no reason for one to suffer with ill-fitting dentures anymore. “As little as two small implants in the lower jaw can create a stable denture and preserve the bone,” noted Little, a long-time White Rock resident who has been helping people smile and feel more confident for more than 10 years. “Gone is the worry about the lower denture slipping up and out. Dental implants have a success rate of more than 98 per cent and are well-tolerated.” In addition to implants, there are several types of denture teeth available, according to Little, who emphasizes that there is no ‘onesize-fits-all option.’ “It is no longer necessary for dentures to look false – other options include gender-specific teeth with varying shapes, sizes and cosmetic shades available.” And while many put off the purchase of new dentures in fear of breaking the bank, most insurance plans cover a portion of the cost. “Insurance will allow new dentures every five years with relines allowed every two to three years,” said Little. Personalized customer service for every single patient who walks through the door is the cornerstone of Envision Denture and Implant Centre’s success. “A mouth is unique as a finger print –great care and attention to detail is necessary to achieve proper comfort, function and aesthetics,” said Little, who runs one of the most friendly and up-to-date denture clinics in the Lower Mainland and over a dozen denture options available. Joining Little at Envision Denture and Implant Centre is fellow denturist Gordon Brown, a dental technician and two friendly reception staff, who will book necessary appointments, take care of any insurance information and make a nice cup of coffee for patients. “We all love being a part of the smile-making process –it truly is a unique profession to be involved in,” said Little. Anyone considering dentures or dental implants is encouraged to make a complimentary consultation. “We will work closely with other dental professionals to address any concerns a patient may have – we also offer free cleaning kits with complimentary consultations.” For more information about Envision Denture and Implant Centre, call 604-538-3384, email or visit

Since taking over the dealership nearly three years ago, the team at Murray Hyundai has been providing unbeatable service and selection for their customers. Now is a great time to come by and check out the brand-new, totally redesigned Sante Fe, says general manager Cedric Gagne. “It’s a beautiful car. We have sold a lot of Sante Fes at the dealership, and they have always been great cars. But this time, the team at Hyundai really outdid themselves. They never cease to amaze us with their new designs,” Gagne said.

The line-up at Hyundai has been worked on from the ground up and integrates new technology with the Hyundai standard of being fuel-efficient and the best value for the money. But it’s not just the cars that are behind Murray Hyundai’s success, says Gagne, it’s the people, too. Right now, the team at Murray Hyundai are hoping to raise $7,000 in October to donate to KidsSport, which will take that money and help local kids get on the ice and play hockey.

“It’s all a part of the Hyundai Hockey Helper which is being organized by Hyundai Canada. Nationally, the company hopes to raise $1 million to help young kids who can’t afford to play hockey,” Gagne said. “We want to give back to our community, especially our young people.” For Cedric and his sales team, it’s all about the people. The product does bring people in, but it’s the knowledgeable sales staff who helps make the purchase process a smooth one. “We want people to feel at ease and at home, without all that pressure,” Gagne said.

ABOUT MY BUSINESS… • Provides care for seniors so they can stay in their home • Offer services 24 hours a day, seven days a week • Professionally trained, caring staff • Unique services, such as wedding assistance

As the population of mature adults in White Rock/South Surrey continues to grow, so does the need for special assistance allowing seniors to remain independent for as long as possible. Since opening on the Semiahmoo Peninsula in 2005, Comfort Keepers has provided care to seniors. This care encompasses all avenues – from assistance with household tasks, such as light housekeeping and meal preparation, personal care such as bathing and grooming, companionship services that include conversation, walks, errands, transportation and assistance with hobbies. By providing the right mix of care services, Comfort Keepers helps their clients maintain their independence while continuing to stay safely in their homes. Through their special brand of home care called Interactive Caregiving, caregivers engage with their clients in a wide range of physical, mental and social activities that promote their overall health.  Comfort Keepers also think “outside the box,” offering services like assistance at weddings and other formal events. Special family events can be chaotic or stressful for those involved, especially if they have to look after a senior family member at the event. By using Comfort Keepers services, they can leave all the transportation and care of their loved one to the caregiver, so everyone can enjoy a stressfree event. Another important service they offer is accompanying clients to medical appointments. This service is especially appreciated by family members, who are unable to accompany their loved ones. Comfort Keepers will even take notes to report back to the family afterwards. Each Comfort Keeper is professionally trained and matched with clients based on personalities and interests – as well as skills and needs – in an effort to develop strong, healthful relationships. What truly sets them apart from other in-home caregivers, however, is their natural gift for caring for others. They have a heart for in-home caregiving. Knowing that life doesn’t only happen between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Comfort Keepers offer services 24/7 and someone can be reached via phone at all times. “Though the workload is at times exhausting and overwhelming, at the end of the day, the team at Comfort Keepers always feels satisfied that they have been able to make life easier for one senior or family member that day”, says Heather Martin.

ADVANCED HEALTH & FITNESS SPECIALIST Just because the temperature is getting colder doesn’t mean you should stop living an active and healthy lifestyle.

While numerous hair salons have popped up on the Peninsula in recent years, there is a difference at David Michael of London that’s noticeable the moment you walk through the door. From the warm welcome to the professionalism, owner David Gadeke and his team strive to be the best in the industry.

After founding Leaps and Bounds in 1994 Shirley Garrett has been helping people get in shape and live the active life they’ve always wanted.

When it comes to hairdressing, one might say David was destined to work with scissors.

In 2005, the longtime Peninsula resident and certified trainer – specializing in Advanced Health and Fitness – opened her own fitness training studio in order to offer the best in personalized service to area residents. Shirley and her carefully-selected team of trainers offer a range of services for their clients, including strength training, cardio, small-group training, one-on-one personal training, outdoor training, Pilates and most recently - Interactive Cooking classes as part of our “Fitness & Food Forum”.

“Our family has been in the hairdressing industry for more than 90 years... 1919 is the year it all started,” he explained. David has spent the majority of his life in a hair salon – even as a young boy. “I remember helping my mom in the salon by rolling the client’s hair at just nine-years-old,” said David, who officially became a hairstylist in 1986. Being privileged to have two parents who worked as young stylists in London during the ‘Swinging Sixties,’ David gained skills often overlooked in today’s more ‘’fast-track training methods.”

Christina, Roger, Valerie, David, Tracey, Debbie, Terry, Kirsten and Kat

It was with these skills and the knowledge picked up working alongside some of the greatest names in the industry that took him to the stage in London’s Wembley Arena for the 1994 Hair Olympics.

The opening of David Michael of London in White Rock at 15239 Russell Ave. last November has been a dream come true for David, who sold David Michael Hair Care in London, England before immigrating to Canada in 2007.


“My wife and I came here looking for a better life for our young son Harry,” explained Gedeke. “White Rock was one of our first visited towns and quickly became our chosen home. I very much like the community feel... it really reminds me of a coastal town in England.”

• Over 90 years of hair experience under one roof • Professional product lines, carried in store, such as: Goldwell, KMS, Nioxin and Paul Mitchell’s luxury Wild Ginger. • Complimentary consultations

The salon is made up of two sections: The first is a traditional European style salon where David works with his chosen team. The staff on David’s side of the salon are all employed by David Michael of London and work to the same high standard that has carried David’s family through three generations since 1927. The other half of the business consists of the more traditional North American chair rental salon. In addition to carrying some of the industry’s most sought-after products, including Goldwell, rKMS, Nioxin and Paul Mitchell’s luxury Wild Ginger, the salon has a selection of hot tools available, including: wands, dryers, GHD styling irons and the very latest Miracurl by Babyliss – a curl queen’s dream Miracul is the world’s first fully automatic professional curl machine.

• Selection of hot tools available, including: wands, dryers, GHD styling irons and the very latest Miracurl by Babyliss – a curl queen’s dream!

“It lets you control the temperature, time and curl direction, providing the flexibility to form loose, beautiful waves or defined curls,” said David, who will soon be selling these miraculous tools at a steep discount.

Shirley Garrett

ABOUT MY BUSINESS… • Experienced personal trainer specializing in Advanced health and Fitness • Range of services offered including one-on-one training, group training and outdoor training • Member of the Medical Fitness Association

Make sure you keep watch for the big event!

But Leaps and Bounds also stands out for its membership in the Medical Fitness Association. Through this association, we regularly access continuing education through the Harvard Medical School affiliated groups Institute of Lifestyle Medicine and Exercise Is Medicine. This gives Leaps & Bounds access to the most up-to-date information on research and data regarding health and fitness. Our clients range from those new to exercise, to people with loads of experience, but who are now looking for something new and creative to challenge and advance their fitness. In addition, we have the experience and expertise to design programs specific to the needs of people requiring injury management as well as individuals seeking a fitness-based approach to help cope with a variety of health concerns including chronic illness, depression and anxiety. “We have direct access to a Registered Psychologist/ Executive Coach, Registered Dietitian, Registered Massage Therapists, Naturopathic Doctors, Physiotherapists and we will work with Physicians to keep them apprised of their patient’s progress,” Shirley said, noting they also offer Corporate packages that can be customized. By offering such personalized service, the team at Leaps and Bounds can help you create a fitness program that suits your lifestyle and budget. “We are fortunate to have long-term, loyal clients who have been benefiting from their training at Leaps & Bounds for years. The best part is helping them to have fun while getting fit and getting more out of their life.”

CHIROPRACTIC & LASER CARE Many take their spine for granted – especially when it is healthy and causing no problems. It isn’t until one experiences even the slightest discomfort that they truly begin to understand just how much back pain affects their lives.

Anna’s Homemade Food boasts “the best cabbage rolls and perogies in the city.” So says owner Anna Hillhouse – whose blend of home style cooking and cozy home-away-from-home ambience was an instant hit with White Rock residents after she first opened the doors of her restaurant in September of 2012.

With October being National Chiropractic Health Month – and the theme, ‘get vertical’ – Dr.Thomas Burge of In-Joy Life Chiropractic and Laser Care is encouraging men and women of all ages to stand up for back health – quite literally.

“After a year in business I can say it for sure,” she adds. “I dreamed of owning a restaurant for 20-25 years. Cooking is my hobby. I created a nice business because I put my heart in it, and it worked right away.” Her proud claim is backed by a proud history: a native of Poland, she cooks with traditional recipes handed down over centuries, adding a few of her own special secrets in the way she combines her spices and healthy, natural ingredients. “I’m very patriotic about Polish food, because it has lots of variety – this is absolutely traditional Polish food,” she says, adding that in the course of 10 years living in Quebec City and 15 years in B.C. she has also gathered international cooking influences to add to her cuisine.



Even though the dine-in or take-out restaurant has only been open for a year, locals have developed a craving for Anna’s hearty soups, including barley, red borscht, cabbage, pea and tomato with dumpling.

• Authentic Europeanstyle foods, including cabbage rolls, perogies, tortilla rolls, potato pancakes, traditional salads and fine meats

“I have lots of regular clients, some five times a week, some three times a week,” she says. “There are lots of European people who live here, and they often tell me “you cook just like my grandmother did.” Popular combo meals are two cabbage rolls teamed with ratatouille, or a single cabbage roll with your choice of perogies, potato pancakes or sausage; sausage with perogies, Polish schnitzel with potatoes and salad, Thai chicken with potatoes and salad or potato pancakes with beef stew and ratatouille.

• Call-in ordering, takeout or eat-in

Patrons can also take advantage of Anna’s special discount plan – buy five soups and get the sixth for free, or buy five meals and get the sixth for free.

• Party foods, platters and catering available

And Anna would also like customers to know that parties – large and small – are also a specialty. Her restaurant which offers everything from full catering, including European-style music, to party platters and smaller orders of party-friendly delectables.

• Celebrate all your special occasions at Anna’s (Christmas Parties, Weddings, Birthdays etc.)

The restaurant can also be booked for private parties of up to 25 people, or for parties of up to 100, she also has access to Martino’s Cappucino and Coffee Bar in Crescent Beach.

Anna’s Homemade Food

Annie, Dr. Thomas Burge, Dawn


• We use a combination of technology and seasoned experience to assess your concerns

“We determine if we can help and then develop a strategy that can set you on the road to recovery,” said Dr. Burge of the detailed process that takes around 45 minutes.

• We will teach you how to be well and stay well with home exercises, nutritional advice and Strategies for Healthy Living Workshops

“We look at everything from your feet, all the way up to your neck. As a chiropractor, it’s vital we take the whole body into consideration. You would be surprised how much feet can affect your back and how ergonomics can affect your nervous system.”

Head-to-toe examination just $77 for the month of October (reg. $150)

Anna’s Homemade Food is conveniently located next to Buy Low Foods at Hilltop Plaza (Thrift Avenue and Johnston Road). The restaurant is open Tuesday to Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Olivia, Sandra & Nic Christian

ABOUT MY BUSINESS… • In business on the Peninsula since 1996 • Tailored programs have been thoughtfully designed for your child’s precious early years • Fun, educational and unhurried atmosphere • Every day we look forward to helping every child meet their maximum potential • Now eight locations to choose from!

Planting the Seed for Further Education™

Creative Kids Learning Centers opened its first preschool back in 1996 in a small portable on the back property of Colebrook United Church. Today, president and founder Sandra Christian has eight different locations and the programs fill up fast. “Back then, I didn’t have two nickels to rub together – I had to beg CIBC for a small loan,” recalled Christian, who was just 22 when she started her first preschool in a run-down portable. It didn’t take long for her vision of creating facilities that promote learning in beautiful, well-equipped surroundings with qualified, nurturing and dedicated educators to take flight. “The community embraced us and as a result, our programs and locations have grown organically over time to meet the needs and demands of our growing city.” Creative Kids Learning Centers provide fun, stimulating, academic and socialbased programs that have been designed to foster the individual needs of each child who comes through the door. Since the inception of the first program 20 years ago, it has evolved to now offer six separate and uniquely tailored educational programs that support the families within the community: Preschool, Junior Kindergarten, Ready to Read, Before and After School Care, Summer Camps and Full-Day Child Care. “And we are still growing! “ said Christian. Being a mother of two children who have gone through each one of the programs, Christian has a vested personal interest in the curriculum and facilities. And as an early childhood educator, the Peninsula resident insists on providing only the highest quality professional programs and childcare. “Our goal is to ‘Plant The Seed For Further Education’ in all the children who come through our doors,” she said. Creative Kids Learning Centers’ Rosemary Heights and Morgan Crossing locations recently began offering a ‘Family Drop-In’ every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mrs. Ale Geveart is on-hand to assist the families in a variety of fun and engaging activities. “Parents are welcome to sit back, relax, sip on coffee and even bring in their computers if they wish to surf the net as we have a wireless connection,” noted Christian. While Creative Kids has undergone several large expansions in recent years – including a brand new state-of the art facility in Morgan Crossing that spans more than 5000 square feet– the primary focus now is settling in, said Christian. “There are no plans to expand at the moment – making sure we have qualified staff and the highest quality programs is our number one commitment.” Any parents interested in enrolling their children into one of the six programs for preschool and kindergarten, are invited to attend an open house information session in February. Register online or come into the facility. “We want to meet parents, take them on tour and answer any questions they might have about our facilities,” said Christian. For more information, visit

INK & TONER CARTRIDGES When your printer ink is running low, do you high-tail it to the nearest big box office supply store and then cringe every time you pay the bill? If so, you should check out your local Cartridge World, at #12-3189 King George Boulevard.  For about half of what it costs to buy new, Cartridge World – the world’s fastest growing ink refilling retailer – can refill or remanufacture 95 per cent of inkjet and laser toner cartridges, using top-quality, brand-specific ink and toners.   Operating more than 1,700 locations in 60 countries, Cartridge World keeps money IN your pocket and hundreds of millions of empty printer cartridges OUT of landfills every year. This proactive solution to waste reduction is a win-win for customers, entrepreneurs and the environment.   Frequently Asked Questions:   Q: Is there a risk to using a refilled cartridge? 

Mike and Ethan Kitchen

ABOUT MY BUSINESS… • Voted #1 in the category of toner replacement services by Entrepreneur Magazine Products and Services: • High-quality ink and toner refills for the most popular brands • Genuine and compatible ink and toner • Cartridges for all printers, copiers, postage meters and fax machines • Printer, copier and fax repair • Trained expert technicians • 100% satisfaction guaranteed!

Your savings may vary depending on your printer. As a rule of thumb, you can expect to save up to 50 per cent on refills at Cartridge World, compared to the cost of a brand new cartridge. In fact, Peninsula businesses and residents are saving hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars every year by making the switch. In addition to savings, Cartridge World also offers their customers the ability to make a choice regarding waste reduction and the environment.    Q: Will using refilled cartridges void the printer manufacturer’s warranty?   No. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act prohibits the printer manufacturer from voiding the warranty. Printer manufacturers will almost always advise you against refilling because they want you to keep buying their expensive replacement cartridges and accessories. You can feel confident that cartridges sold, refilled or remanufactured by Cartridge World will meet or exceed your expectations. Our own warranty also extends to your printer on any valid claim!   Q: Is cartridge refilling and remanufacturing the only service Cartridge World provides?   No. Cartridge World is a one-stop shop! In addition to a printer/fax/copier repair service, we stock a full selection of new and compatible ink and laser cartridges, copier toners, fax and postage meter supplies, specialty paper and labels.   For more information, please visit

ABOUT MY BUSINESS… • Tea with grandma connects relatives with a click of a mouse • Simple errand services including groceries, pharmacy, etc. • Driving services offered for doctors appointments, treatments, etc. • Light housekeeping and in-home services • Therapeutic foot soak and nail care

Aging parents or relatives deserve the best of care in their golden years, but caring for them while maintaining your own busy life can be a difficult balancing act. It’s a challenge that South Surrey’s Nancy Bussey knows all too well – after watching her own parents age, struggling with day-to-day responsibilities, Nancy decided it was time to pay it forward and offer assistance to seniors and people just like her – the unpaid caregivers of aging parents. “I based my business on my personal experience and desire to help, but also I’m just the kind of person who thrives when I’m around others,” she said. “I love speaking with seniors and hearing their stories. It’s truly inspirational to be around these amazing seniors with so much spirit and courage.” In February of 2011, Nancy officially launched Independent Care Service, a unique business offering much-needed assistance with services required by seniors and their caregivers. From simple tasks like running errands, such as groceries, going to the pharmacy, and dry cleaning or if it’s driving to a doctor’s appointment and keeping them company, Nancy covers all the bases. Nancy also offers a chance for family members to connect with their elderly loved ones in a unique and innovative way. With a hectic schedule it can be difficult to visit elderly parents regularly. But with Tea with Grandma, it can be as easy as watching a screen. With the service, Bussey comes to your grandparents’ or parent’s home with a 17” HD screen computer and mobile wireless. Using Skype, families can connect and see each other, no matter the distance. And of course Tea is served. Nancy has a number of custom assistance pac packages as well to round out her sservices. “Connecting with family does so much. If someone is sick, it helps lift their spirits and aids in their recovery,” Nancy said. “It’s a service people love, and I’m so happy to be able to offer it.” h

Taking care of your health should be a number one priority. But sometimes, people forget about one of the most used parts of their body: their feet. Everyday, people put their feet through various stresses and positions, making them vulnerable to injury or pain. For nearly 20 years, podiatrist Dr. Howard Green has been helping people get back on their feet – literally – with his expertise and personalized care. The longtime Peninsula resident has a slew of credentials – including holding the position as the Head of the Department of Podiatry at Vancouver General Hospital and UBC, as well as President of the British Columbia Podiatric Medical Association, to name a few. But it’s not just the many prestigious titles he holds. Dr. Green is a full-scope podiatrist, meaning he can look after, diagnose and treat all foot-health related issues. From geriatric routine foot care to more complex procedures, such as surgical correction of foot deformities or abnormalities – Dr. Green’s vast experience allows him to help people with all footrelated ailments. In 2008, Dr. Green was one of the first Canadian podiatrists to be certified as a Master Surgeon in the HyProCure procedure – a quick, simple in-office procedure that dramatically and permanently corrects flat-foot deformities in children and adults, with a high success rate. He is also one of the few Canadian podiatrists who has a state-of-the-art surgical suite in his office, meaning surgical procedures can be done under a local anesthetic, easily and with minimal health risks to patients. Most importantly, Dr. Green shares his knowledge with patients, educating the on the effect feet have on the whole body with one-one-care. With a strong focus on long-term results and education, you can feel safe putting your feet into his hands.

“We’re pleased to announce the return of authentic Southern hospitality – and killer barbeque - to our delicious corner of Surrey,� exclaims Park Heffelfinger and George Siu, cofounders of the award-winning Memphis Blues Barbeque House group of restaurants. Memphis Blues, which launched in 2001, now has eight stores within the group, including brand new locations in Abbotsford and Edmonton, which both opened this summer. Innovators from the start, theirs was the first casual selfserve restaurant in the city with a sophisticated twist to what is now David O’Leary, Nicholas McWilliam, Jess Garner Dawine and craft beer list. They also offer one of the most extensive Bourbon selections in the city. Memphis Blues has also extensively grown their catering division, and are a sought-after partner for weddings, corporate events and more. Recognizing a growing excitement for traditional southern “baah-bee-cue� in the Fraser Valley, Park and George decided to renovate their five year-old store at the vibrant Grandview Corners Mall location (2443-161A Street in South Surrey) and moved their most experienced Pit Masters there to share their passion with local BBQ lovers. Park and George are holding a Grand Re-Opening celebration at the Grandview store on Saturday, October 26, from 1:00 to 4:00pm. There will be music, giveaways, food and drink specials and fun for the whole family. Since re-opening the doors just this past week, Park, George and the new Pit Masters have been welcomed into the community with open arms. “It’s been overwhelming,� they conclude. “People in the area have been great supporters of Memphis Blues from the beginning and we want to repay their enthusiasm by bringing our A-team to the store.� It’s a new day for Memphis Blues Barbeque House in Surrey and the future is bright.

Cheryl Gregory, Amanda,

ABOUT MY BUSINESS… • Authentic, unique native art • Family-run business • Showcasing the work of local artists • Totem Poles • Wood and stone carvings • Paintings • Blankets • Hand made clothing • Cowichan sweaters • Exquisite jewelry and much more... A33


Owners Cheryl and Jim Gregory opened the Peninsula store two years ago with a simple vision in mind -- “To provide for their family while creating employment for Native artists.” “I have always wanted to have a Native art store... It’s been a lifetime dream,” reflected the mother of two -- her daughters, Amber and Cheyenne, also work alongside her, Cheyenne, Amber, Jim Gregory as well as her nieces and her husband. “I have appreciated and enjoyed Native Art all of my life” reflects co-owner Jim Gregory. “It’s a real family business -- definitely a positive, uplifting place to be.” Since opening in October of 2011, sales at Cheryl’s Trading Post have been slowly and steadily gaining strength; A Facebook fan page, ‘I Love Cheryl’s Trading Post,’ has garnered a huge following of 5,773 people and counting. “Everyone just loves the art!” said Morgan Gregory matter-offactly. “I’ve heard people saying ‘it’s a healing or magical place. I’ve also had someone tell us ‘you’ve got the best store in the world’.” In addition to selling authentic Native art from across the Americas, Cheryl’s Trading Post is a hub for local talent, which is plentiful on the Peninsula. “We are proud to carry pieces from the Semiahmoo people,” said Morgan Gregory. “Right now we have work from Leslie and Leonard Wells, and from Nahanee, and we’d like to have more. “ Cheryl Morgan Gregory noted she’s fortunate to have a wonderful staff. “I’m really proud of them and what they’ve accomplished already. They are pretty amazing and strong young women -- all very important in helping the store run smoothly.” The staff are family members and friends of the family. Also her mother is proud that Cheryl carries on the family tradition of hard work and entrepreneurship. The key to the store’s success has been the support of the loyal customers, and their love of Native Arts. “We really appreciate them and do our best to keep them happy by giving them the best prices and the best products. I hope they keep coming back, and

bring their friends and families -- they are the reason we are able to be here.”

For owner and three-time Olympian Paul Williams, coming to the close-knit community after moving from Vancouver, he saw only one thing missing. “This community was definitely in need of a speciality running store,” he recalled. Since the day the doors opened at the store on 152 Street, Williams and longtime manager Lisa Farrow have put endless hours hosting clinics. Lisa Farrow & Paul Williams “We want our community to not only be healthy, but be supportive of community projects, charities and awareness campaigns,” Farrow said. The well-recognized running clinics range from the 5-km walker for beginners to marathon and half-marathon distances. And many of the clinics are offered at all different levels. • Running shoe When the two are not in the store or hosting a clinic, they can often be found in their community, finding ways to give back. headquarters on One of Williams’ greatest achievement was successfully the Peninsula. pushing for a running track to be built at South Surrey arena. • Trained and Williams was not only a vocal advocate for the space, knowledgeable staff but through a number of fundraisers hosted by Peninsula Runners, he and his staff were able to raise nearly $150,000 to • Unbeatable selection contribute to the track. of running shoes “All the money we raise goes right back into our community,” he said. “With the track, that’s how the track club was created. If you build it, they will come. So now we have a track club with several hundred kids in it and we have other clubs in the area that are using it. “It’s fantastic.” And with more and more customers looking to get a great deal on their running gear, Williams is planning to organize “Stay at Home Saturdays” which will feature unbeatable prices and encourage consumers to spend their dollars at home, in their community, rather than across the border. “We’re part of this community, we live here, we grew up here, our kids grew up here, we care that the track is here and we care that the schools have cross-country and track programs. So anything we can do to foster an active community and make it more vibrant, we’ll do,” Farrow said.

2013 Marks the


of Hugh & McKinnon Realty


n 1909, Surrey Pioneer Edwin Carncross, realizing the future potential of the area, established a Real Estate and Insurance Company in Cloverdale at 176 Street and Highway 10. The population of Surrey was only 1,291 & Vancouver’s 78,900. By 1909 the population of the Semiahmoo First Nations had dropped to just 38 since the Spanish arrived in Boundary Bay in 1790. Edwin Carncross and his family came to Surrey in 1888, homesteading 160 acres at Brown and State Street which is now 32 Avenue and 160 Street. Edwin’s brother Charles and his wife Mary moved to Surrey in 1897. As well as farming, Charles was a member of Surrey Council from 1898-1899, was elected Reeve in 1901 and became a Notary Public in 1917. 1909 also saw the opening of Surrey’s first bank when the Bank of Montreal opened just a few doors down from Carncross & Co. Back in Montreal, the Montreal Canadiens played their first game January 5, 1909 beating the Colbalt Silver Kings 7-6 in overtime before a crowd of 3,000 in the Jubilee Rink. Just a few years later in 1911, The Vancouver Millionaires would win the Stanley Cup. In 1916 while war raged in Europe, Charles sold his farm and joined Edwin at Carncross and Co., later that year Edwin moved to California due to ill health. In 1917 after serving in the Royal Canadian Flying Corps in WW1, Fabian Hugh joined the Company in the real estate business and the company was renamed to Carncross & Hugh. Originally a Notary Public from Ontario, Fabian received his Notary Public Seal for the province of B.C. in 1919 and was appointed SecretaryCollector for Surrey in 1921. When Charles Carncross retired from the firm in 1929, Fabian was left to run the business with Frank McKinnon who had joined the firm in 1926. For the next 10 years the two were the entire staff carrying the real estate, insurance, conveyance and dyking work, each earning $55 per month. In 1936, during the Great Depression, high school student Alan Davidson was hired as an office clerk, working in the mornings before school and on Saturdays, taking care of such chores as dusting, sweeping and learning to type. After serving in the Canadian Air Force during World War II, Davidson returned to the firm in 1945

where he was offered a 30 per cent partnership, and was put in charge of the insurance branch. In the early 1950s, the name was officially changed to Hugh & McKinnon Ltd, a few years before Fabian Hugh retired in 1954. The 1960s and 1970s saw a great deal of expansion with branch offices opening in White Rock in 1960, Vancouver in 1961, North Surrey in 1962 and Langley in 1969. The White Rock branch first opened in 1960, and as the company continued to grow, was relocated to just south of North Bluff and Johnston Roads, across from the Central Plaza Shopping Centre in 1968. In 1978 the company was sold to Richards and Melling Inc, the White Rock office was purchased by Bill Sutherland and relocated to the corner of 140 Street and 16 Avenue in South Surrey, where it remains to this day. Hugh & McKinnon became a real estate sales and property management company, no longer involved in insurance brokerage. In 1990, Bruce Robinson and Greg Long took over the company after Larry Colby’s retirement. Larry had acquired Bill Sutherlands interests in 1988 . Greg Long’s untimely passing in 2013 has left the company in the hands his business partner Bruce Robinson and a very capable group of professional Real Estate Salespeople, Property Managers and Finance and Accounting professionals that are guiding the firms continued growth. Today the company provides management services to the owners of over 4,000 Condominium units, 300 rental properties and numerous commercial properties. The company has ownership interests in shopping centres in Walnut Grove, Brentwood Bay, Courtenay and residential projects in West Kelowna. In 1999 Hugh & McKinnon purchased and redeveloped the highly successful Kelowna Lakeshore Inn and managed it for eight years before its sale to the Manteo Resort. Hugh & McKinnon’s Real Estate sales group markets property to local, national and international buyers. Our professional real estate sales people are capable of informed consultation on any type of property from first time investments to the largest estates. Through diversifying its business ventures, Hugh & McKinnon has managed to stay stable and successful through the great depression; world wars and financial crisis that have made many companies disappear. Regardless of your real estate or investment needs, with 104 years serving the Fraser Valley community Hugh & McKinnon has the experience and expertise you deserve.

A classic opera with a twist is set to take place in White Rock Oct. 27 as The Barber of Barkerville takes to the stage – a localized, children-friendly version of The Barber of Seville, set in the historic northern B.C. town during the gold rush.

of the Baskervilles, directed by Ellie King for the newly formed professional company Bad Dog Productions. It’s a spoof retelling of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most chilling, Halloween-appropriate adventure, picking up on the genre established by the stage hit version of The Thirty-Nine Steps. The Clive Francis adaptation employs a small cast (three men in this instance) to play all of the characters, male and female, with often hilarious results – but in spite of the lightning fast changes of character, scenery and costume, it’s also a surprisingly faithful version of Conan Doyle’s plot. Sherlock Holmes and his faithful companion Dr. Watson are called on to help solve the mystery of the Baskerville curse – a huge spectral hound that terrorizes any Baskerville family member that comes to live at the ancestral

home on the edge of gloomy and forbidding Grimpen Mire. Behind it all is a secret agenda, but the ‘supernatural’ mystery is no match for the ultra-rational Holmes, described by Watson as the “most perfect reasoning and observing machine the world has ever seen.” The Bad Dog version stars Michael Charrois, Mark Carter and James Rowley, all of whom worked with King – recently named in the Surrey Civic Treasures awards – at the now defunct Raymond Burr Performing Arts Centre in New Westminster on such productions as Charlie’s Aunt, The Haunting, Harvey and Dracula, and The Silver Scream. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. with a 3 p.m. matinee Oct. 26. Tickets ($25, $20 seniors and students) are available by calling 604-594-2700, or through info@ or www.

Barber of Barkerville It will be Rossini with a twist when Peninsula Productions presents the Vancouver Opera children’s production of The Barber of Barkerville Sunday, Oct. 27 at 3 p.m. at White Rock Elementary (1273 Fir Street). In this version of one of the world’s most famous operas, Rossini’s comic masterpiece The Barber of Seville has been relocated to B.C.’s historic Barkerville during the exciting Gold Rush era. Figaro, a crafty and mischevious barber, uses trickery and disguise to help Al, a love-struck young man, liberate the beautiful Rosie from the clutches of the dastardly innkeeper, Bart. This must-see production is filled with laughter, charm and some of opera’s most memorable music.

Surrey defeats Coquitlam, Prince George to get back into win column

Undefeated week ends Eagles’ slide Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter


o much for that losing streak. After struggling for much of the last two weeks, the Surrey Eagles – losers of five straight games since the calendar turned to October – won twice and tied another last week, to keep pace with the top teams in the BC Hockey League’s Mainland Division. Last Wednesday, the Eagles brought their losing skid to a halt with a 5-4 victory over the Coquitlam Express, and at South Surrey Arena on the weekend, earned three of a possible four points against the visiting Prince George Spruce Kings, after a 6-1 win Friday and a 4-4 tie Saturday night. The Eagle still sit fourth in the five-team Mainland Division, but are just five points back of the first-place Langley Rivermen; a week ago, they trailed by nine. In Wednesday’s road win over Coquitlam, the Eagles got off to a hot start. They scored twice in the first five minutes – on goals by Brett Mulcahy and Joseph Drapluk – and led 3-1 by the first intermission after Nic Pierog tacked on a power-play goal with one second left before the buzzer. In the second period, the Eagles’ power-play struggled, giving up two short-handed markers – to Ryan Rosenthal and Canon Pieper – in the first 4:15 of the frame, but Drapiuk and Mulcahy each scored again later in the period to restore the Eagles’ two-goal lead. In the third period, Coquitlam’s Jace Hennig – on the power play – scored the only goal, to make it 5-4, and Surrey held on for the victory over the final 15 minutes of play. Jonaf Renoug and Danton Heinen each added two assists for the Birds, while goaltender Devon Fordyce – whom the Eagles acquired earlier this month after he was cut by the Western Hockey League’s Seattle Thunderbirds – made 31 saves to earn his first win

Surrey Eagles’ forward Nic Pierog had a hat-trick Friday to lead his team to a 6-1 victory over the Prince George Spruce Kings. in Eagles’ colours. On Friday, Pierog stole the show for the home team, scoring three goals to pace the Eagles’ offence in the 6-1 win. Mulcahy tacked on two goals and added an assist, while Heinen – with a goal and two helpers – Drapiuk and Renouf, who both had two assist, all had multi-point games. Fordyce again backstopped the home squad, making 28 saves in the win. The 19-year-old netminder – who also has WHL experience with the Prince George Cougars – was even more impressive in Saturday’s 4-4 tie with the Spruce

Kings. He made 41 saves, including three in overtime, to help Surrey earn a point in a game in which they were outshot 44-27. Heinen, Mulcahy, Pierog and Matthew Dawson scored for the Eagles, with Dawson’s game-tying marker coming with just 5:08 left in the third period. Brett Lashuk had two goals for the Kings, and Chad Staley had a goal and an assist. Neither team could grab the extra point in overtime, with just five shots fired on net between the two squads. The Eagles will get the opportunity to extend their undefeated

streak this weekend, when they travel down the highway Saturday to face the Chilliwack Chiefs at Prospera Centre, before returning home Sunday afternoon for a home date with the West Kelowna Warriors, who will be finished off a three-games-in-three-nights road trip.

have made a few other tweaks to the roster. On Oct. 16, Eagles’ coach/general manager Peter Schaefer dealt White Rock native Joel Gaudet to the Flin Flon Bombers of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League in exchange for forward Garrett Forster. As well, Surrey added 1994-born defenceman Brian Drapluk – brother of current Eagles forward Joseph – to the roster. The twins – natives of Penbrooke Pines, Fla. – both played last season with the Minnesota Wilderness of the Superior International Junior Hockey League.

Awards, all-star nods for Rams The Langley Rams were well recognized by the B.C. Football Conference last week, earning five awards and placing eight players on the all-star team. Leading the way for the Rams – who played in Surrey for decades before moving to Langley in 2011 – was Evan Foster, who was named outstanding defensive

player and outstanding defensive linemen. Foster set a new BCFC and Canadian Junior Football League mark for quarterback sacks, registering 16 in 10 games. Anthony Daley was also named the BCFC’s top offensive lineman for the second straight year, while running back Kyle Alber-

tini was named top offensive back. Offensive lineman Brad Goodchild, a Cloverdale native, won the Ron White Community Service Award. The Rams’ five all-star nods went to Daley, Shawn Mellesmoen, Albertini, Malcolm Williams, Joe Patko, Tanner Hamade, Foster and Steve Thomas.

Surrey runners to lace up at Fraser Valleys

More than 30 stand-up paddleboarders and other supporters took part in a World Paddle for the Planet event Oct. 12 in White Rock. The event – which saw a handful of paddlers head out into Semiahmoo Bay for a paddle  – was organized by Surrey resident Scott Burton and held to draw attention to environmental issues. This year, the anticoal train movement was the major cause. “It was a great event,” said Burton.

Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

South Surrey runners are set to make an impression on the trails of Clearbrook Park this week, when the Fraser Valley Cross-Country Championships kick off. The event, scheduled for Wednesday, features different races – starting with Grade 8s and continuing until senior boys and girls events later in the day. And at all levels, Peninsula schools are expected to fare well – especially Semiahmoo and Earl Marrriott, both of whom had runners on the podium at Surrey championships earlier this season. “A lot of the movers and shakers are

Compassion is your speciality, Pisces. Others appreciate your warm nature, so accept their gratitude and affection.
