Public meeting attracts two schools of thought over meaning of South Surrey proposal

Divided views over arts-centre towers Alex Browne Staff Reporter

About 200 people packed the Rotary Field House Tuesday night to learn more about a proposed residential-tower development that advocates believe could help create a cultural hub in South Surrey. Among the crowd, attitudes seemed split between those excited about the potential of the proposed amenities – among them a

350-seat performing-arts centre – and those wary of the impact of two towers, one 26 storeys and the other 19, at the corner of 152 Street and 19 Avenue. The as-yet unnamed project, still in the design proposal stage, would be a co-operative development of the Reifel Cook Group and the Surrey City Development Corporation, each owners of lots that would be combined for the project.

In response to questions from the crowd, architect Patrick Cotter said the project would provide about 300 units. In his presentation, he pointed out the site is in an area of the Semiahmoo Town Centre plan identified as eligible for bonus density in return for cultural amenities, and is one of three locations where a ‘landmark’ tower could be able to exceed a 20-storey limit. He said the current plan is for towers of

different heights “offset to provide daylight and view areas.” Four-storey ‘podiums’ for the towers would include retail and office space, he said, while a pedestrian mews along 152 Street would be an adjunct to shopping and a cafe/gallery space. Nearly 600 underground parking spaces on 3½ levels are also proposed. i see page A4

A White Rock merchant who closed shop twice this month for scheduled power outages says he wants to know why business operators at Royal Plaza weren’t told when one of those outages were cancelled. BC Hydro has apologized for the “miscommunication” that led Wolf Paech of Wolf ’s Deli to twice move all of the perishables from nine refrigerated units in preparation for the Oct. 8 and Oct. 21 outages, but the store owner said this week that words are not enough. He wants compensation to cover his losses – about $500 in all. “That’s a big mistake,” he reasoned. “I cleaned everything out that day (Oct. 8) and nothing happened. It cost a lot of time and it cost a lot of wages.” Paech was among 16 BC Hydro customers who were notified in late September of the first outage, planned to accommodate a powerpole replacement. After receiving a second notice advising of the Oct. 21 outage, he called the utility company to confirm which day – and was told work would proceed both days. i see page A4

It was a welcoming ceremony for two future symbols of welcome. Monday, students, staff and dignitaries gathered outside Earl Marriott Secondary as two red cedar poles – split from a single tree felled in Squamish – were delivered to the school. And they were called upon for the key ceremonial role of witness by Semiahmoo First Nation councillor Joanne Charles, who drummed and sang the poles into the school with other Semiahmoo singers, for what was described as the “historic” CEN’ALIEN Project. In the hands of SFN carver Leonard Wells – himself a former Marriott student – the poles, which bear some preliminary marks, will be transformed into two totems, one male and one female, which will be on permanent display in the school’s entrance lobby. In keeping with Marriott’s ‘Mariner’ theme, Charles said the male figure will be carrying the paddle of a traditional First Nations fisherman in Semiahmoo Bay. The carving, to take place in the school’s inner courtyard, should be complete in time for EMS’s annual powwow in March, Wells told Peace Arch News. i see page A5

meetings based on the median rate of pay for mayors in the region. So it is one big vicious circle: Mayors’ salaries are based on other mayors’ salaries; Metro salaries are based on mayors’ salaries; and cities base their ongoing and constant pay raises on decisions made in other communities. Local politicians should lose all power to give themselves raises. It’s easy to say that voters can get rid of them if they are offended by the raises, but until more people start paying attention and actually voting, that is not likely to happen. Perhaps the provincial government needs to regulate the salaries paid to local politicians and set a maximum amount based on the size of the community. That maximum should include all extra meeting fees, such as Metro Vancouver and TransLink fees. At one time, the province did just that with school trustees. In the early 1980s, trustees were permitted to make a maximum of $2,000 per year, with the school board chair allowed to collect up to $4,000. That low level of pay didn’t stop people from running for school trustee positions, and by implicitly agreeing to that low salary as candidates, they set a good example of public service. It’s too bad that attitude of serving the public and not being in it for oneself has fallen out of favour so badly with municipal politicians. Frank Bucholtz writes Thursdays for the Peace Arch News.

Satellite reservations considered by federal government

Civic concern over First Nations proposal Jeff Nagel Black Press

The City of White Rock is adding its voice to concerns a federal-government proposal to let First Nations set up satellite reserves within cities may circumvent local planning and taxes. In response to a letter from the Corporation of Delta outlining unease with the ‘Policy on Additions to Reserve and Reserve Creation’, Mayor Wayne Baldwin Monday suggested council authorize him to write a letter indicating support for ensuring the policy changes are not adopted as outlined. “I think some excellent points are made there,” Baldwin said of concerns detailed in an Oct. 8 letter signed by Delta Mayor Lois

Jackson, who notes the proposed amendments “have some very significant implications for local governments.” “In particular, the changes will allow First Nations to add lands to their reserve that are outside of their traditional territory,” Jackson writes. “This means, for example, that a First Nation in the Cariboo could acquire land in Delta and include it in their reserve thereby removing it from municipal jurisdiction.” Jackson’s letter was sent to all B.C. mayors and councils, MLAs, MPs, senators, Premier Christy Clark and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. White Rock council voted unanimously – with Coun. Grant Meyer absent – to have Baldwin prepare the city’s response.

The province is asking the federal government to tread cautiously with its proposal. Critics fear the outcome could be unregulated pockets of land that are no longer subject to zoning or other civic rules and don’t contribute to municipal or regional taxes. B.C. Aboriginal Relations Minister John Rustad said Monday the proposed changes to the federal additions-to-reserve policy are important to fostering economic development by aboriginal bands, but added the province has heard concerns. “We want to see First Nations pursuing their own economic, community and social objectives,” Rustad said. “We don’t want to see anything that is going to hurt the opportunities that we have for First Nations to be

able to pursue that. But at the same time we also want to make sure that local governments are not adversely affected.” The additions-to-reserve policy has existed since 1972, letting aboriginal bands acquire property and add it to their reserve, usually to accommodate population growth. But it was a slow and cumbersome process and newly created reserve land had to be roughly contiguous to an existing reserve. That requirement is gone from the draft policy, which opens the potential for any band in B.C. to buy distant land for economic development – possibly in urban areas of the Lower Mainland. A report outlining Metro concerns with the policy goes before the board on Friday.

Focus on false alarms Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Emergency crews respond to a second crash Monday evening that closed major thoroughfares in South Surrey for several hours.

Second crash cuts power to thousands in South Surrey

Collision dumps chicken, duck debris Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

City crews tasked to clean up the remnants of an afternoon mishap in South Surrey Monday were likely thankful the assignment came on a relatively cool day. Police say a close call between a car backing out of a driveway in the 3100-block of 192 Street and a truck swerving to avoid it resulted in several large containers of “chicken and duck parts and blood” being dumped on the roadway. City of Surrey operations manager Gerry McKinnon said the incident occurred as “a farmer (was) moving some chicken waste in four 100-gallon barrels from one side of the road to the other.” “When he dodged (the reversing car), they fell off and made it one heck of a mess.” The thoroughfare was closed between 28 and 32 avenues for four hours after Surrey fire crews deemed the high-fat-content debris a safety hazard. Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said the inci-

dent occurred just after 4 p.m. Oct. 21. Street, hit a truck that was towing a trailer The 61-year-old truck driver, a Chilliwack westbound on 16 Avenue.

Fines for unnecessarily tying up White Rock’s emergency-response crews are to kick in Jan. 1, following final reading Monday of a new bylaw targeting false alarms. The White Rock Security and Fire Alarm System Regulation Bylaw was drafted at the request of the RCMP, in the hopes of significantly reducing the number of such calls. In a report to council, the city’s director of development services noted the number of false alarms is “excessive” for police – 429 in 2012 and, as of Aug. 28, 251 in 2013. White Rock firefighters respond to an estimated 100 false alarms every year, he added. Without the threat of a penalty for the inconvenience, residents and business owners have no motivation to ensure their systems are in good working order, Paul Stanton told council earlier this month. “As long as they don’t have a fine, there’s no incentive to fix the faulty alarm.” The bylaw incorporates fees for false alarms that begin at $100 for the second false alarm in any 12-month period; the third would cost $300; the fourth and any subsequent false alarm would cost the owner or occupier $500 each time. Mayor Wayne Baldwin said the fact a warning will be the first step reflects the city’s “kinder and gentler” approach to the problem. Updates to bylaws dealing with noise and unsightly premises, ticketing and animal control also received final reading Monday. Stanton said the changes bring the bylaws up to speed with current legislation and – regarding the noise and unsightly premises bylaws – “allows us to also charge the property owner where we have a tenant situation.”

Residents leary of arts promises i from page A1 Cotter said such development would leverage provision of more rapid transit for the area – as it allows the city to take more road allowances for necessary widening of the streets. The proposed performing-arts centre would be a full proscenium theatre (a framed, curtained stage), and would include a secondary rehearsal hall that could function as a studio theatre for smaller-scale productions. Cotter said before the meeting that he was sure there would be “some concern about tower height. We want to make sure we’re addressing all of the issues

about the form of the development. We want to be up front in providing as much of this information as possible.� Cotter said the proposal was “exceptional� in that the owners are opting to provide actual cultural amenities rather than just contributing cash in lieu of them. David Cann, president of the Semiahmoo Residents Association – historic foes of highrise development in the Semiahmoo Town Centre – said he was heartened by the number of people attending the meeting. Cann had said earlier that while his group is “without a doubt� in favour of the development of

arts facilities, he questioned the need for more theatre space, in the context of the nearby Coast Capital Playhouse in White Rock and the Wheelhouse Theatre at Earl Marriott Secondary. “Whether what they’re offering is of any significance, I doubt,� he said. “It seems like a bit of a fob – here, guys, let us build these highrise towers and we’ll give you some arts facilities.� Cann noted that Bosa’s Miramar Village development in White Rock was also described as the site of an art centre in its early stages, but evolved into a more broadly-defined community centre.

Compensation unlikely: BC Hydro i from page A1 “I did my due diligence,â€? he said Wednesday. Paech only discovered the plans had changed for Oct. 8 when he saw staff at the Royal Bank opening for business that morning. “The bank told me‌ they knew a week (before). As a small merchant, I’m not informed,â€? he said. Until at least 10:15 a.m., the utility’s website continued to advise that power was scheduled to remain off until 4 p.m., he noted.

BC Hydro spokesperson Mora Scott said Wednesday the problem was caused by a mistake in the notification process. Affected customers were to receive notice of the schedule change on Oct. 3. “Unfortunately, he wasn’t notified properly,� Scott said. “Obviously we regret any inconvenience that this may have caused him.� While an Oct. 10 letter from BC Hydro advises Paech he will not be compensated, he said he was told late Wednesday morn-

ing that the request is now being considered. (Scott was unable to confirm that by PAN’s deadline Wednesday afternoon.) Scott said earlier that such claims are typically denied. “In our electricity tariff it sort of outlines that we’re unable to guarantee an uninterrupted supply of electricity, so most of those claims that are sort of beyond our control are refused.� The project is part of plans to replace 700 aging poles in the area.

Totem a turning point for relations i from page A1 “I was thinking it would take about four months, but it might be only three,” he said, noting that his initial work on the project only began at the beginning of September. “Once I get going, I just don’t stop.” “We’re very excited,” Charles said. “We’ve been talking about this for 20 years – we have some short-term goals and some longterm goals, and this is one we really wanted to work on with the school.” Marriott principal Peter Johnston said the pole carving will be a learning experience for students and “a lasting legacy for the school.” Aboriginal advocate teacher Michael McKay-Dunn said the project – a collaboration between the school, the school district and Semiahmoo First Nation, helped by private fundraising – is the first of its kind in a Surrey high

Raphael told the crowd that the project’s affirmation of aboriginal identity fits in well with the district’s newly-avowed focus for these students, 71 of whom currently attend EMS. “We want First Nations students to graduate with dignity, purpose and options,” she said. Surrey-White Rock MLA Gordon Hogg recalled that Semiahmoo First Nation’s commitment to education could be seen back

as far as 1959, when the late Bernard Charles, later chief, became the first aboriginal president of a student council in Canada. “It’s only through celebrating different cultures that we can learn to get along with each other,” he said. White Rock Mayor Wayne Baldwin noted the project’s appropriateness in the “year of reconciliation” between Canada’s First Nations and other populations. “This school has made a huge success of overcoming the mess we made of it before,” he said. Const. Troy Derrick, Surrey RCMP First Nations Policing officer, told students that bearing witness to the ceremony is an important part of a culture based on oral traditions. “Some time, you’re going to be asked what it’s like to be a Canadian...this is what it’s all about. It’s going to stick with you guys, the younger generation – you witnessed it, you saw it.”

Consider the surroundings

W

ith the much-needed replacement to the George Massey Tunnel scheduled to start construction in 2017, a period of great change looms – not just for Delta and Richmond, but also Surrey and the Semiahmoo Peninsula. This project, which could cost in the neighbourhood of $3 billion, will help expedite traffic and trade throughout the region and spin-off benefits through investment will extend much further than the immediate location of the replacement. The plan, still very much in its infancy, calls for the removal of the existing tunnel, with a bridge to be built over the same route. While this new piece of infrastructure has the potential to create massive economic benefits for the region, the removal of the tunnel would also allow for deeper dredging of the Fraser River, opening the route for shipping traffic. With the latter potential comes understandable concern about the project’s effects on the environment – and these concerns must be top of mind for the province as it moves forward with the design of a new bridge. The construction of the new span will, in all likelihood, result in the loss of some farmland in Delta – but such impact will also be felt further afield. It’s imperative the province not merely replace lands in the Agricultural Land Reserve lost to construction – while increasing the production capability of existing ALR land – but also take the opportunity to add, significantly, to ALR land throughout the region. There is also concern about the type of shipping traffic the bridge will bring to the Fraser River. Given the sensitive nature of the Fraser River estuary, and its importance to the commercial fishing industry, it doesn’t make sense to allow oil tankers up the river, and communities along its shores – including Surrey – won’t stand for it. Container ships are another matter, however, as they do not pose nearly the same kinds of environmental risks. Currently, Panamax-size vessels already sail up to Fraser Surrey Docks, but they can’t be fully loaded because of the channel depth at the tunnel. Deeper dredging would allow fully loaded container ships to offload upriver, resulting in fewer trips to deliver the same amount of goods. And upriver unloading would also reduce truck travel throughout the Lower Mainland by allowing goods to be offloaded closer to market. A George Massey Tunnel replacement offers opportunity, but it must make good sense environmentally, as well as economically.

It was just over two years ago that it came into my life. My husband and I were headed downtown for a concert. Having stepped off the SkyTrain near Rogers Arena, we started heading for a local pub to grab a bite to eat, when suddenly, it started raining. Two middle-aged, well-dressed men – perhaps on their way home after a few after-work beverages – stopped us on the sidewalk, handing the husband the umbrella. “Here,” one of the men said. “You’ll want to keep your lady dry.” And off they went. We stood there in the rain, shocked by what had just happened. It was an unexpected act of kindness that my husband and I had never really experienced in this city, and one that we still recall fondly. The memory of that evening brightens my spirit every time I reach for that umbrella on an otherwise miserable, rainy day, and I’m reminded that not everyone out there is mean and inconsiderate. It’s always nice to try and focus on the positive instead of the negative. Working in the news industry, that can be a difficult task, as more often than not, stories we encounter tend to lean towards the darker side of humanity. But if you look hard enough, you just might be able to find reasons to have faith in humanity after all, and motivation to turn the other cheek the next time someone cuts in line or flips you the bird. After all, we’ve got enough jerks on this planet already. Melissa Smalley is a reporter at the Peace Arch News.

Saying sorry isn’t enough Editor: Re: Mayor apologizes for city hall errors, Oct. 17. I am pretty sure there was a collective response of shock and disbelief amongst White Rock residents, upon reading about Mayor Wayne Baldwin’s apology to a homeowner. Mayor Baldwin, sorry does not cut it all the time. Your planning department needs to be proactive and sufficiently staffed and supervised. They need to be held accountable for their mistakes. I have often heard the planning department state that they were not aware of the loophole that the developer used! Is it not their responsibility to be aware of the possible loopholes and close them so that the homeowners are not surprised? I remember attending one of the council meetings and pointing out that I was quite concerned about the ‘oops, we did not know that’ response from the planning department. I was also surprised the homeowner in the article, Chris Small, was told any legal action the city undertakes may not change anything. Mayor Baldwin, it is not the city taking the legal action I would be worried about. I would worry about possible legal action against the city, councillors and planning department. I’m sure the taxpayers would end up paying for that in the end. Please let us prevent that by holding your planning staff accountable and demand proactive planning from them. Aroon Shah, White Rock Q I, too, have called White Rock City Hall with bylaw concerns and have received no response in any timely manner – or with any resolve in the last eight months. It would seem City of White Rock has a very big ‘backlog’ problem. This breach of proper building and development bylaws poses a security risk for my children or anyone living in these residences that are affected. Cindy Small, White Rock

Consider value over height Editor: Re: Residents target towers, Oct. 17. Perhaps the Semiahmoo Residents Association needs to accept the fact that South Surrey is no longer a single-family quiet residential area. Whether we like it or not, development is proceeding rapidly all around us. To quote columnist Frank Bucholtz in last Thursday’s Peace Arch News, “an innovative project…” is being proposed for the corner of 19 Avenue and 152 Street. We are going to have development, and this appears to be quality and community oriented. We need to look at this project from its potential

contribution as an asset to the community, and not say no just because it includes two highrises. The anti-highrise fight is already lost along the south 152 Street/ Johnston Road corridor. Let’s encourage our mayors’ and councils’ continued support for appropriate development in the South Surrey/White Rock core. Eric H. O’Dell, Surrey

One way to keep the tunnel Editor: Re: Bridge vote sought, Sept. 26. Instead of replacing the George Massey tunnel, why don’t we keep the tunnel and use it and the new bridge as a one-way system? I am all in favour of a new bridge. Use the bridge for all southbound traffic and use the tunnel for all northbound traffic or vice versa. I am an immigrant from London, England. The Dartford-Thurrock Crossing was created as part of the M25 motorway to alleviate a major bottleneck. The solution they came up with was to build a bridge

next to the tunnel. The tunnel was northbound, the bridge southbound. Also, in addition to having transponders for payment, they had a cash bin so that you could toss your payment in as you drove by, alleviating people avoiding tolls so they don’t get a large bill in the mail. There is a nominal charge during the day and free in the evening. I am also in favour of putting tolls on all bridges, so the problem we incur at the Pattullo doesn’t happen elsewhere. If there is the same toll on all bridges, everyone pays. However, the brainless bureaucrats that came up with the $4.25 toll on the Golden Ears Bridge – obviously the same morons who came up with the Highway 99 HOV minimum six passengers several years ago – might want to rethink the toll to maybe a loonie with an option to pay cash. Minimum-wage workers who travel those bridges are not in a position to pay $200 a month in tolls and cannot afford $150 monthly passes. I would like to point out that I am not a communist. I am a business owner. I voted Liberal in the provincials, but let’s give our head a shake and make it easier for lowerpaid workers to get to work. Jim Delaney, Surrey

Bullying policy puts us at risk Editor: We, as parents and taxpayers, have been made aware of the hastily passed Surrey School District regulation 9410.2: “Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity.” Under the guise of bullying, this is a misuse of public schools to propagandize a particular viewpoint without regard for wishes of parents. Parental rights are being violated. The UN Declaration of Human Rights states: “Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children.” “Safe and Caring Schools” will hardly be safe, as children from homes with traditional values may then be subjected to bullying as a result of this one-sided policy. Google “Center for Disease Control” to see the high risks of an unhealthy lifestyle being promoted by this curriculum. Why are the medical side-effects not being taught as well? This is “safe and caring”? Marlene Penner, Surrey

Letter-writer Sybil Rowe has her eye on the City of Surrey’s planned Grandview Heights Recreation Centre.

A lone voice on the wilderness Editor: I had prepared myself for the development. I did not want this incursion into the serene ambience that drew me here in my retirement, but prepared myself to make best of it. To watch the beautiful treed properties, lovingly tended over the years, being excavated was painful. However, I cannot describe the shock I felt, standing at the corner of 24 Avenue and 168 Street, looking out over two clearcut acres completely stripped of trees. It was a horrible, inexcusable act. I was appalled. This was a city project – not something “dreadful developers” had done. Realizing a large pool was slated for this spot, I thought of the South Surrey Indoor Pool and visualized the mature western cedars just outside the front door. I could not understand the lack of sensitivity shown in the building of our Grandview Heights Aquatics Centre. My fear is this desecration will continue throughout the remaining acres slated for development on my street. I understand parking lots are needed, but parking lots and trees get along fine together. A row here, an island there, makes the lot beautiful – and people will rush to park under a tree when the heat of summer is upon us. We hear that trees will be planted later. I appreciate the attractive landscaping seen about town, but I must insist ornamentals do not replace our magnificent Douglas firs and western cedars that give South Surrey its character. On my refrigerator is a magnet from the city parks department. It has a shade tree bearing the inscription: “Trees make Surrey cool.” How I wish they would distribute some to our mayor and council. Am I the lone voice of an eccentric? I don’t think so. I

believe that people do love trees but don’t realize it until it is too late. One day, they look around and say, “It used to be so beautiful here, whatever happened?” I am fighting for the preservation of some vestige of the neighbourhood that drew us here in the beginning. It is a lonely fight. I am met with the weary resignation that follows years of futile meetings, struggling through an empty process in which public input ends up in the trash. One neighbour is exhausted after battling for two years over Area 4, that exquisite, environmentally sensitive area we associate with Redwood Park. The citizens advisory there is a cynical process indeed. Only two members are true residents, all others being developers who, having purchased properties in the area, are mysteriously elected to represent the wishes of the neighbourhood. The city is aware of this situation and permits it. Shame! This makes a mockery of our democracy. I have a vision, one encompassing the Canadian tradition of compromise. For starters, the boulevard trees on either side of 168 Street between 24 and 32 avenues must be preserved and declared heritage trees. Continue to develop between 24 and 26 avenues and 168 and 172 street, but change the way you do it. Hold the heritage trees that make Grandview Heights the paradise it is in the highest regard. Save them wherever possible. Remember, this is our neighbourhood. The city is not entitled to sweep through with chainsaws and excavators, destroying the land before our very eyes. We will not stand for it. They need to consult us, in a truly honest and meaningful way, before continuing with this project. Sybil Rowe, Surrey

Refunds demanded after seven-hour delay

SkyTrain snarl angers riders Black Press

TransLink is apologizing after a seven-hour shutdown of a section of the Expo Line caused huge delays and severe crowding for SkyTrain passengers Tuesday morning. Trouble with a section of power rail that was improperly installed during overnight maintenance work near Main Street station caused system-wide delays. Transit riders took to social media to vent, with some reporting their trip to downtown Vancouver took two to three hours after waiting for bus bridges or shuttle trains to carry them between Joyce and Main Street stations. “I am one of your biggest supporters, but today’s nightmare was an epic fail on all parts,” Tracey Flattes wrote on TransLink’s Facebook page. She was among many passengers who complained of poor communication by TransLink and insufficient help from staff for the throngs that were packed into SkyTrain stations.

Passengers face crammed conditions on SkyTrain platforms Tuesday morning as they wait at Expo-Line stations. “I understand that things happen that are out of control, but things that are should be managed properly, and weren’t,” added Kris Liu. Many passengers are calling on TransLink to compensate them for the morning disruption. “Today has been the absolute worst,” said Chris Keehn. “Where are our refunds?” The shutdown began just before 6:30 a.m. and service was restored on SkyTrain just after 1:30 p.m. TransLink spokesman Derek Zabel said the power-rail instal-

lation error caused damage to the collector shoe assembly of a train, which in turn ripped up a section of communications cable. “We certainly apologize to our customers who experienced delays today and hopefully we can earn the right to continue to serve them in the future,” he said. “This was a major service disruption for customers right in the middle of the morning commute.” Zabel said TransLink has no capability to issue refunds, although that may be an option after Compass cards are rolled out.

Regional district boosts meeting fees to $354

Metro politicians get raises Jeff Nagel

on mayors’ pay is performed once every three years. For the next two years, the meeting fees and Metro salaries will instead climb by the rate of inflation. Metro Vancouver paid out a total of $870,000 in remuneration to its directors last year, plus $60,690 in expenses. Metro directors fees have climbed 40 per cent over the past five years, from $253 per meeting in 2008.

Black Press

Metro Vancouver directors have received a 2.3 per cent increase in the meeting fees they collect – retroactive to the start of the year. Metro directors are now paid $354 for every regional district board or committee meeting they attend, up from $346 in 2012. The fees double if a meeting runs longer than four hours. The salary paid by Metro to the board chair – Port Coquitlam Mayor Greg Moore – also rose 2.3 per cent to $70,865, while vice-chair Raymond Louie is paid half that amount. All the stipends and fees are in addition to what local cities pay their mayors and councillors. The regional politicians didn’t vote on the pay hike –  the increases are calculated by Metro staff according to a formula set out in a bylaw. The chair and vice-chair salaries and the meeting fees are all pegged to the median of Metro Vancouver mayors’ salaries, so if several cities increase their mayors’ pay, the Metro fees also climb. Most cities recalibrate their mayors’ pay each year, some based on a similar regional median or average, and some are pegged to the negotiated increase of unionized staff.

Top-paid directors (‘12) File photo

Greg Moore at the UBCM. Top-paid mayors in the region, according to Metro’s figures, are Vancouver’s Gregor Robertson at $152,756, Burnaby’s Derek Corrigan at $139,206, Coquitlam’s Richard Stewart at $133,741, Surrey’s Dianne Watts at $130,533 and Delta’s Lois Jackson at $128,701. Those figures all include the base salary plus car allowance and any other taxable benefits. Moore said pay for politicians’ service at the regional level can’t fall behind and Metro’s approach ensures that directors don’t vote on their own pay hikes. “Those are the rules that we live in,” he said. “We’ve tried to do it as fairly and transparently as we can and this is what we’ve come up with.” Moore said the calculation based

Staff Reporter

embers of Surrey’s business community gathered Tuesday morning to discuss crime issues and prevention strategies with representatives from the city and local police. But the topic of medical marijuana dominated most of the hour-long session, as officials from the Surrey RCMP and the City of Surrey shared their concerns on upcoming changes to pot legislation. Organized by the Surrey Board of Trade and the Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce, the Campbell Heights Crime Prevention breakfast quickly focused on changes to federal medical-marijuana legislation,

Barinder Rasode echoed Fordy’s concern on the lack of information provided to officials on properties that used to house residential grow-ops. “People will be going into these homes and not knowing and finding out there are very serious safety risks about who might be coming around the house, and very serious health implications with the chemicals and the type of fungus nurtured in those very warm climates,” she said.

addresses of previous residential grow-ops, but noted that they were not prepared to do so yet. She added that in anticipation of the legislation changes, a bylaw was created that states marijuana can only be grown in very specific industrial sites. “We made a separate zoning for that,” she said, noting that residents living close to where a industrial marijuana grow-op is proposed would have a chance to speak at a public hearing. Other topics at the forum included finding ways to manage the growing mental-health issues that strain police resources, as well as casinos and creating an emailnotification system that all small businesses in the community could use to notify colleagues of suspicious activity in the area.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Achievements recognized by council

Artists honoured Tracy Holmes

Staff Reporter

hite Rock became even more arts-conscious Monday evening, as 10 members of the local arts community were celebrated at a special city council meeting at the Community Centre, kicking off the city’s first official International Artist Day festival. The gala launch of the festival itself, which continues until Oct. 27, will come Friday night at the centre, 15154 Russell Ave., hosted by Jane Baldwin, wife of White Rock Mayor Wayne Baldwin. Prior to Monday’s regularly scheduled business, Baldwin and councillors recognized White Rock Players Club founding members Phyllis Clifford and Guy Weston; Peninsula Productions’ co-founder Wendy Bollard; sculptor John Butt; 3-D visual artist Roxanne Charles; author Leona Gom; Xba Dance Studio owner Nela Hallwas; visual artist Judy Jordison; musician Oliver Gannon; and painter/muralist Richard Tetrault (also a participant in the gala and weekend art demonstrations).

Dubbed a celebration of arts and culture, Monday’s special meeting was to “acknowledge and express (council’s) appreciation on behalf of the community for their many contributions.” Baldwin said board members of the Semiahmoo Arts Society were asked to provide a list of area contributors to the arts scene they felt deserved acknowledgment. Monday’s event also featured a trio of songs performed by the White Rock Children’s Choir, musical entertainment by Semiahmoo Secondary jazz band students, Andrew Skepasts and Brandon Lin, and a preview of celebritypainted aprons that are to be auctioned off at the International Artist Day gala. Baldwin noted that Clifford and Weston are the last surviving founding members of the players’ club – which this year marked its 350th production. Weston’s wife, Barbara, who was also a founding member, passed away last month. Noting that funds to purchase and renovate the city’s first playhouse came largely from members who mortgaged their own homes to contribute, Baldwin

White Rock council invited members of the local arts community to city hall Monday to honour their achievements. Those recognized included the founding members of the White Rock Players’ Club (inset), while the celebration featured a performance by the White Rock Children’s Choir (above, left). said the impact of that continued dedication will not be forgotten. “We know that your spirit will continue to live on in many performances to come,” he said. Weston’s daughter, Kay Anuik, said after the event that the recognition for her father and other artists is appreciated. She and her brother essentially grew up on stage as a result of their parents’ involvement in the local theatre scene, she said. “We used to hang around in the theatre when rehearsals were going on,” she said, recalling having a few roles in the club’s pantomimes over the years. Anuik said her father has been a White Rock resident for about 80 years – ever since he was 10. Meanwhile, Jane Baldwin said Monday that organizers were busy putting the finishing touches on the gala, which will feature ‘Mr. O Canada’ Mark Donnelly as celebrity MC, and musical entertainment by award-winning local bassist Jodi

Proznick and her trio. “We’re really looking forward to having a great celebration,” she said of the wine and hors d’oeuvres event, for which International Artist Day founder Chris MacClure has assembled an unparalleled list of master artists, many of who will be sharing their art and techniques with the public during the course of the weekend. Ticket price ($150) includes a $100 voucher which can be put toward the purchase of any piece of art featured in the festival. In addition to MacClure and Tetrault, master artists present and showing work at the gala will be Alan Wylie, Raymond Chow, Arnie Fisk, Brent Heighton, Jon Einerssen, Dave Benning, Dan Gray, Gaye Adams, Keith Hiscock, Terry Isaac, Rick McDiarmid, Jef Morlan, Dave Patterson, Vance Theoret and Jose Ventura.

Last year’s Halloween festivities in Cloverdale.

Costumed kids hit the streets Jennifer Lang Black Press

A well-travelled giant pumpkin, Surrey’s exhilarating Celebration Dance Team and local exhibitors are among the star attractions at this weekend’s Halloween Costume Parade in Cloverdale. The popular daytime trick-or-treat parade – now in its 13th year – attracts hundreds of local families and promises to take over the historic town centre this Saturday afternoon. It’s a safe, familyfriendly event involving local businesses, too. Festivities and registration begin at noon at Surrey Museum Plaza and the parade starts at 2 p.m., when children in costumes are taken on a supervised walk through downtown Cloverdale. Trick or treaters visit local stores in three zones: downtown, Brickyard Station and Clover Square Village mall. (Prizes for costumes are awarded by random draw.) Six hundred children showed up in the rain last year, with just under 1,200 turning out the year before. “It’s like our version of a giant open house on Halloween weekend,” says Paul Orazietti, executive director of the Cloverdale BIA, which co-organizes the event. “The merchants are the ones that bring it alive. They get dressed up – they get quite into it. Some have smoke machines. It’s their way of saying, ‘here we are’ and giving back to the community.” The Surrey Museum at 17710 56A Avenue is hosting Pumpkin Power. Come decorate jack-o’-lanterns and eat pumpkin pie. There will be spooky games and a Halloween scavenger hunt in the museum’s exhibit gallery. (Must preregister at 604-5926956).

In the plaza, check out Cinemazoo’s exhibit of scary critters: tarantulas, skunks and reptiles. The parade is presented by the Cloverdale Business Improvement Association, and Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce, along with various sponsors, including Surrey RCMP’s District 4 office, along with Surrey Crime Prevention.

Local artists open their studio doors to public for cat-themed event

Art tour a purrfect success

FRASER HEALTH PUBLIC BOARD MEETING

Please come and join us for upcoming Board of Directors Meeting in the Surrey, B.C.

Alex Browne Arts Reporter

The White Rock Studio Tour celebrated its 20th annual event last weekend (Oct. 19-20), as nine professional artists on the Peninsula opened their studios to the general public. Participating artists Simon Cantin, Carolynn Doan, Connie Glover, Judy Jordison, Karen Kroeker, Arlene McGowan, Jess Rice, Ann Worth and Theresa Marie Shanks repeated the theme concept that proved successful with crows in 2012 – this year, wherever possible, highlighting works that included cats. “Nearly everybody in the tour has got something to do with cats,” said Jordison, long-time co-organizer of the ❝You find something that tour with fellow artist Kathy works and you MacDonald, who concentrated on organizational work this stick with it.❞ year while convalescing from health challenges. Judy Jordison Practically the only exception artist was Glover’s well-known pottery – she was already in the process of firing her kiln when the theme was settled – although she admits she has a cat that wanders through her studio greeting all visitors. The theme also provided plenty of scope for anecdote in the other artists’ works – an integral part of an event that’s continuing success has been the insight it provides into the artists’ working places, techniques and fundamental process of creativity. This year, that included everything from McGowan and Shanks’ whimsical ceramics of stretching felines to Jordison’s portrait of her black and white cat intruding – in typical fashion – on one of her floral still-lifes. He also likes exploring her palette, she added. “The other day he had cadmium red and yellow on one paw and ultramarine blue on the other.

Studio tour continues to grow 20 years on › from page A29 cat cuddling against the body. “The cat was there in a central light - the feature that enhanced it,” she said. Karen Kroeker’s mixed-media work intriguingly mixes photography with sewing machine stitching – drawing, in effect, with lines of sewn thread. In one of her works, for instance, a photograph of a cat she took in her backyard, photoshopped and transferred to fabric, is enhanced by almost three-dimensional stitched foliage and flowers. “I’m kind of a newbie with the group this year,” she said, adding that her work is a logical extension of her university studies in textiles and painting. About the only downside of the tour, the participants said, is that they don’t get to visit each others’ studios while they’re busy hosting at their own.

fall. And the accessibility of the tour to art enthusiasts has a commensurate pay-off in terms of sales. “The website for the event (www.whiterockstudiotour.com) is also a great help,” said Glover, adding that displays in local libraries (including Cloverdale, Ocean Park and Semihamoo) also help build anticipation. Doan said the audience is also growing, both in visitors from Vancouver and further afield, but also among high school students who have been assigned to visit the studios. Persistence has also paid, Jordison said. “It comes from stubbornness. Every year I say to Kathy, I’m not going to do it again. But every year it’s a success – I can’t ever say I’m not going to do it. And it gets easier to organize, and we’ve figured out the best ways of advertising it.

White Rock photographer releases online video series

Eagles captured in the raw Christian Sasse has seen his share of the world. He has lived in such far-flung destinations as Sri Lanka, South Korea, Sweden and South Africa – and those are just the countries under ‘S.’ But since arriving in B.C. in 2011, Sasse has found his passion: eagle photography. The White Rock resident already had a fascination with light, getting his PhD in optics, but in the eagle he found the perfect subject for his focus. “The eagle fascinates me because of the many facets it has; and they’re all very powerful,” says Sasse. “I try to get closeups, in flight, from above, below. As many looks as I can get.” As it turns out, Sasse has quite the talent for getting the right look. His blend of dedication and technique has garnered over 20,000 likes for the photographer’s Facebook page, spawned a book: “White Rock Eagles: A Bald Eagle Family,” and seen his work featured both on the cover of Outdoor Photography Canada magazine and in an article within its pages. This passion brought the photographer to Vancouver Island this September as the shutterbug spent three days in Port Hardy getting up-close and personal with the raptor. While there, Sasse began shooting video between stills, and last week he and partner Mark Horner released the inaugural episode of a planned series of short films under the banner of Eagle Nova Films. “Port Hardy turned out to be a paradise for a photographer,” said Sasse. “It seemed perfect for the launch of Eagle Nova as I believe that it deserves more attention. My approach is simple and down-to-earth and hopefully I have given Port Hardy the respect it deserves.” The 9½-minute video is a blend of nature documentary, photography workshop and Port Hardy travelogue. Besides his beloved eagles, Sasse’s film includes views of a fisherman in the Quatse River estuary, Blue Heron, geese, a black bear and views of town.

Photographer Christian Sasse merged his eye for light with his fascination for eagles; one of the results is this image of an eagle and a spiderweb. “What I enjoy about Port Hardy is the real raw beauty, the nature and the way people are,” said Sasse in the first of the Outdoor Treasures offerings. “They’re very unpretentious and very natural.” The September visit was his second to the

North Island, and he was struck by the memory of people who had met him on his first trip and who approached him to chat and get caught up. “I was known by that time as ‘The Eagle Man’ with the big lens,” Sasse said with a laugh.

Two wins on road trip

Hawks fly into top spot Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

As far as road trips go, last weekend’s trip to Prince George couldn’t have gone much better for the Valley West Hawks. The BC Major Midget League hockey club – made up of players from Surrey, White Rock, Langley and Cloverdale – won both games against the host Cariboo Cougars, 3-2 and 6-4, to boost their BCMML record to 8-2, good enough for top spot in the 12-team league. In the first game, played Saturday evening at Prince George’s CN Centre, the Cougars got on the board first thanks to a goal from Thomas Webster, and the score stayed stuck at 1-0 until the second, when the home side doubled it to 2-0 on a goal from Bryan Allbee. The two-goal cushion didn’t last long, however – Valley West forward Justin Wilde got the visitors on the board just over one minute later. The goal gave the Hawks momentum, and three minutes later Jesse Lansdell, from Langley, tied the game, finishing off a play that was started by White Rock’s Paul Smith and Langley’s Luke Gingras. With the game knotted at 2-2, Matt Bradley scored the winning goal, with three minutes left in the third period. Cloverdale’s Jordan Funk and Surrey’s Mitch Newsome picked up assists on the play. Game 2 Sunday was a wild, backand-forth affair, with both teams trading goals. As they did Saturday, Cariboo again took an early lead in the rematch on a goal from Allbee just two minutes into the contest. White Rock’s Davis Koch answered right back for Valley West, however, but the Cougars retook the lead later in the first period after a power-play goal, i see page A34

Lions quarterback visits Titans Nick Greenizan

Cloverdale Bobcats knocked off the Titans 30-6.

Sports Reporter

A visit from BC Lions quarterback Travis Lulay highlighted a busy week on the football field for all teams in the White Rock-South Surrey Titans organization. On Thursday evening, Lulay – who is currently out the Lions’ lineup with an injury – stopped by a foggy South Surrey Athletic Park to speak with players in all age-divisions and lend a hand at practice. Three days after Lulay’s visit, Titans teams took the field for Week 8 of their schedule.

Flag In flag-division action, the White Rock Titans travelled down the road to Langley’s McLeod Park, where they edged the Langley Stallions 9-3. The Titans got two touchdowns from Ryder Kusch – touchdowns are worth three points in flag division, instead of the usual six – while Alexander McCrank scored the other for the victors.

White Rock led Cloverdale 20-15 at halftime, but a second-half surge from the Leopards gave them the victory. All three of White Rock’s touchdowns were scored by Spencer O’Brien, while two point-after conversions were kicked by Colin Drew.

Hawks set for pair of games against Giants i from page A33 again off the stick of Allbee. Before the first intermission, the two clubs again traded goals – Isiaha Berra scored a shorthanded marker for the Cougars and Gingras scored for the Hawks, who tied the game early in the second after a Jamieson Ree goal.

Following the pattern set earlier in the game, the Cougars replied quickly with a go-ahead goal from Jesse Roach, but less than 60 seconds later, the game was tied again, after Eric Callegari scored an unassisted goal for the Fraser Valley squad. Later in the final period, White Rock’s Devante Stephens

scored on the power play – with assists from Landell and Newsome – to give the Hawks their first lead of the game. Then, with just over a minute left in the game, Wilde scored his second of the weekend to secure the win for the Hawks. The first-place Hawks will face a tough test this week-

end, when they play a twogame doubleheader against the BCMML defending champion Vancouver Northwest Giants, who sit third in the league with a 6-1-1 record. Game 1 goes Saturday (10:15 a.m.) at the Langley Events Centre, with the second game Sunday in Burnaby.

Rams’ Tanner Hamade (right) moves in for the tackle against Raiders’ Ashton Galloway during the BCFC Cullen Cup championship on Saturday in Nanaimo.

Junior football club can’t defend Cullen Cup

Rams fall in final Gary Ahuja Black Press

They ran the ball, they threw the ball, but they just did not protect the ball. That was the story from the 2013 Cullen Cup – B.C. junior football’s top prize – as the Langley Rams fell 48-37 to the Vancouver Island Raiders at Nanaimo’s Caledonia Park on Saturday. The title was the seventh in the past eight years for the Raiders, who had their consecutive string of BCFC titles snapped last season by the Rams. “It stings,” said Langley coach Ted Kirby. “If you put our roster next to their roster and compared the two, we should have won the game. “Some of this comes down on us (coaches). We just got out-coached.” Though they’ve played out of Langley since 2011, the Rams have strong ties to Surrey. The team has been around, in some incarnation or another, since the late 1940s, playing at various home fields throughout the city, most recently at South Surrey Athletic Park, which they called home from 2006 until 2011. Prior to their 2012 Cullen Cup title, the Rams last won a BC championship in 2005, when they played out of Bear Creek Park in Surrey. Last weekend against the Raiders (8-2 during the regular season), the Rams (7-3), trailed from the open-

ing drive and could never right the ship, trailing 24-8 at halftime before a second-half comeback fell short; the closest they got to the Raiders was within nine points. In the end, four interceptions and a turnover on downs was too much to overcome for the squad. The first interception was early in the game, with the Raiders up 3-0, when the Rams were picked off at their own five-yard line. That led to a quick seven points and a 10-0 deficit within the first few minutes. The turnover on downs came in the second half after defensive back Ryan Reid had given Langley great field position on the Vancouver Island 10-yard line with an interception. But the Rams – trailing 24-6 – could not punch the ball into the end zone. Another costly pick came in the Raiders’ red zone early in the fourth quarter and with the Rams down 38-29. And the last of the interceptions was returned for a touchdown as the pick-6 made it 48-29. “We came back and fought hard, just a couple of untimely penalties and bad turnovers,” Kirby said. Kirby said the players were devastated by the defeat, especially those who are done at the junior level. “It is hard to look at the graduating players in the eyes,” he said. “We can’t tell them we will be back next year for another shot.”

Blacklock, Imoo among Canada West hopefuls

Juniors earn invites A handful of junior hockey players with Surrey ties will be in Calgary this weekend, after earning invitations to the Canada West selection camp in preparation for the 2013 World Junior ‘A’ Challenge. Among the 66 players invited to the tryout are South Surrey goaltender Jonah Imoo – who plays for the BC Hockey League’s Powell River Kings – as well as White Rock native Mason Blacklock, a former Surrey Eagle now playing for the Vernon Vipers. One of Blacklock’s Vernon teammates – and another former Eagle – North Delta’s Demico Hannoun, was

also invited. Blacklock currently leads the Vipers with 15 goals and 24 points in 17 games, while Hannoun is third in team scoring with six goals and 11 assists. One current member of the Eagles, defenceman Matthew Dawson, was also invited to the camp, which runs Oct. 26-30. In total, 22 players will be chosen to suit up for Canada West at the World Junior ‘A’ Challenge, which this year will be held in Yarmouth, N.S. from Nov. 4-10. – Nick Greenizan

Volleyball sides on the podium

Courting medals

A trio of South Surrey volleyball teams found themselves on the podium last weekend. In Kelowna, at the 44-team Best of the West tournament, the Elgin Park Orcas senior girls – No. 7 in B.C. quad-A rankings – won silver in the Tier 1 Gold division, while the Earl Marriott senior boys won bronze on the 40-team boys side of the same tourney. Also last weekend, the Marriott senior girls found themselves with silver medals at a tournament at North Vancouver’s Handsworth Secondary. In Kelowna, Elgin Park began the roundrobin portion of the tournament strong, highlighted by a twoset victory over South Kamloops – ranked No. 2 in B.C. – and in the playoff rounds later in the weekend, defeated Kelowna Christian in quarter-finals and Pacific Academy in semifinals. In the finals, Elgin Park lost a rematch with South Kamloops. “I was very proud of the the girls this past weekend,” said Elgin Park coach Kathy MacDonald. Elgin’s Mikayla Wagner and Emma Blacklock were named tournament all-stars. On the boys side of the draw, Byron Keturakis was named to the all-star team for the third-place Marriott side. At the Handsworth tourney, Earl Marriott lost what head coach Mark Cassell called “a heartbreaker” to the host Handsworth Royals (25-23, 22-25, 13-15) in the title game. The Mariners had advanced to the goldmedal showdown after a win over Riverside Secondary (25-18, 25-23) in semifinals. In quarter-final action, EMS defeated Seaquam. “It was a great weekend for the team, as we were able to play some very strong competition and only (lost) by a couple of points,” said Cassell. Team MVP, according to Cassell, was Amy Vicic, while Emma Davey and Stephanie Dufour were named tournament all-stars. “Our aim is to provide a caring & comfortable dental experience for our patients.”

Welcome to the driver’s seat

In a two-hour drive, the only time I dropped the anchors was when one of Amsterdam’s kazillion cyclists cut in front of me. Keith Morgan

The BMWi electric car powered its way with ease around city streets and along picturesque Dutch canals.

KEITH MORGAN

The future is electric AMSTERDAM – BMW has joined the race for the electric car dollar. On the evidence of two days driving the funky-looking all-electric i3 through the narrow streets of old Amsterdam and alongside the picturesque canals of rural Holland, the German manufacturer may have a winner. For starters, it is simply great fun to drive. The lithium-ion battery, encased in an aluminum cage below the five-seater cabin, provides enough instant zap to the electric motor to propel the car smoothly to 100 klicks in less than eight seconds. Left the stopwatch

at home, but counting “one-and-two etc.” to count seconds, my lips barely mouthed “six” before the speedo leapt from 80 to 120 km/h while passing. It handles beautifully at any speed and hugs the road; thanks to the technology-laden aluminum platform, that gives it a very low centre of gravity. Turns on a Euro too, as we found during the many U-turns made on blocked streets. Of course, F1 take-offs will suck the battery dry somewhat more quickly but you need not be a snail in the so-called Comfort mode to achieve the advertised 160 kilometres range on a full

Mazda hits high note with latest compact release 2014 Mazda3

This is why they shared and USB connectivity for $15,995. If you engineering with the Ford Motor Company equip the base model with air conditioning for many years but that relationship and automatic transmission, the price jumps dissolved in 2010. Instead of modifying to $18,795.

Higher-end models feel like a much more This new 2014 Mazda3 is the third vehicle to be built using expensive car, with qualities not found previously in this Mazda’s Skyactiv Technology, behind the Mazda CX-5 SUV and Mazda6 sedan.

The platform used to build this allnew Mazda3 is a shared chassis with the other two Skyactiv products. They elongate, widen or shorten the platform to suit each vehicle. In this case, it is slightly shorter than the CX-5. In fact, the new Mazda3 is lower, wider and slightly shorter than the last model but the wheelbase has been stretched by 60mm. This pushes the wheels out to the corner of the car, providing a solid stance and improving interior space. Then Mazda went about hand forming the body to produce a style that conveys motion, even standing still. Sold as a sedan or hatchback, the long hood, sweeping lines and powerful stance make a statement in a class that can be rather subdued.

Inside The goal for this latest model was to have a dynamiclooking interior, fitted with materials and features not typically found in a compact car. The dashboard is covered with not only a soft material, rather a plush-feeling dash. Then there is the dash-mounted communication screen placed in the centre of the dash. This is standard on the middle GS and upper GT trim; the base GX is not so lucky. The driver can touch the screen to access music, navigation and phone settings but once the car is in motion the screen is only adjustable through a rotary dial controller between the front seats. On the top GT model there is even a heads-up display that sits right on top of the driver’s instrument cluster, helping to keep the info high enough that it focuses the driver’s attention on the road. The seats are comfortable and can be fitted with leather on the top model.

Drive By developing the direct injection engines, chassis and transmission at the same time, the Mazda engineers were able to shed weight. The lighter platform and powerful 2.0L 4-cylinder with 155hp is a nice match on the base and GS trim levels, driving either a 6-speed manual or all-new 6-speed automatic. The top GT is equipped with a 2.5L engine with 184hp but is only available with the automatic. I’m surprised that the manual is not offered with this engine, as driving enthusiasts will be attracted to this engine right away. On the road, the steering is quick and the feedback well above average. The previous Mazda3 was at the top of its class in terms of driving dynamics and this new model takes it to a whole new level. I’m confident in saying that this new model feels like a much more expensive car.

Striking balance between function, space and price Amy Lawson, 35, leads an active life. She likes to be outdoors, to play sports, surf, bake and has a thriving social life. Professionally, she was recently promoted to be the Territory Manager for Drydock Footwear Group. Her territory covers British Columbia and Alberta. Being on the road is a sizeable component of her work. When it came time to trade in her Nissan Xtrail – which she loved to pieces – she was torn when deciding what vehicle to purchase. “The Xtrail has been a fabulous car, but I’ve outgrown it and need something that can better accommodate all my equipment,” she says. In the process, she considered SUVs, hatchbacks and crossovers. The Ford Flex, Ford Escape, Honda Pilot, Mitsubishi Outlander were on her list to look at. Amy states, “When I started to research vehicles, the No. 1 thing on my priority list was interior space. I needed lots of it.” She continues, “I didn’t mind if the vehicle wasn’t sexy! I need functional. Good looks were secondary to me.” Signing on the Because of her current dotted line did make role, it requires travelling her heart beat quite a around the Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island, BC and bit faster. Alberta with promotional Alexandra Straub gear, display units, sample products and more. Not to mention, if she can pack in her sports equipment like her bicycle, snowboard or surfboard, too, that would be even better. Price was also a factor for her. “I had a budget to work with, and I needed my payments to be around $500 a month,” Amy mentions. “Since I’d be spending a fair amount of time behind the wheel, I’d need something that was comfortable.” When chatting about potential matches, the idea of a minivan came up. I saw the excitement in her eyes. In her personal life, she is not the typical minivan candidate. With no children to drive to hockey or soccer practice, some people might question her enthusiasm. But to her, it seemed like the perfect fit. “I was just so excited about it. Minivans make life so much easier and you can just do so much with them,” she explains. “It made a lot more sense than a pickup and much more sense than an SUV.” A few minivans/minivan-esque vehicles she looked into were the Honda Odyssey, Toyota Sienna and Mazda5. Though the Honda and Toyota appealed to her, it was the Dodge Grand Caravan that had exactly what she was looking for. It was in her price range and had some handy features that would allow easy loading and unloading of her gear. She even really liked its look. Amy tells me, “I can fit two mountain bikes inside with people and still have room for more.” The Dodge Grand Caravan that she selected is the Crewe trim, which also came with some extras. She has a towing package, a rear DVD entertainment system (perfect for passing time on ferry rides!), Stow ‘n Go seats, remote keyless entry to the doors and liftgate and more. While she can’t be happier with her purchase, the signing on the dotted line did make her heart beat quite a bit faster. “There’s a lot of anxiety to buying a car. It’s a big purchase

An early morning drive from Kelowna to Vancouver is normally a pleasurable experience. But a recent jaunt was made much less so by an erratic driver, whose actions required all fellow travellers to watch his antics with great care and attention. The young guy at the wheel of a late model Honda CR-V constantly changed speed, below and beyond the posted speed limit.

When looking back on the experience and looking at her Grand Caravan, she happily says, “What I didn’t think would be a very sexy vehicle ended up being the sexiest to me. And there’s so much space!”

Tire Pressure Monitoring System It can be very difficult, if not impossible, to tell if tires are under-inflated just by looking at them. Having TPMS on vehicles helps to keep Canada’s roads safe by giving drivers the critical warning they need when one or more of their tires has low air pressure.

Safety Under-inflation is the leading cause of tire failure. When your tires don’t have the right amount of air, the sides flex, bend and build heat. Under-inflated tires compromise your vehicle’s steering, braking and cornering abilities.

Fuel efficiency Annually, 643 million litres of extra fuel are consumed by Canadian vehicles because of improper tire maintenance practices. As a result, over one million tonnes of carbon dioxide are unnecessarily released into the environment.

Economics Fuel consumption increases by one per cent for every five per cent of under-inflation. Operating a vehicle with just one tire underinflated by eight PSI can reduce the life of the tire by 15,000 km and can increase the vehicle’s fuel consumption by four per cent.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System TPMS will trigger the dashboard symbol to illuminate when one or more tires are under-inflated by 25 per cent. TPMS improves your vehicle’s handling and stability, decreasing your chances of catastrophic tire failure and having an accident. While not currently mandated, an estimated 70 per cent of new vehicles (model year 2007+) sold in Canada are TPMSequipped. Starting in 2007, TPMS became a legislated feature on all passenger vehicles sold in the U.S.

Deadline for depreciation reports coming in December By Michael LaPorte, CRP, AACI, P. App.

On Dec. 13, 2011, the B.C. Government created the regulation related to depreciation reports, affecting all strata corporations in B.C. with five units or greater. This regulation requires all regulated strata corporations formed on or before Dec. 14, 2011 to either have a Depreciation Report completed

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

by Dec. 13, 2013, or self-exempt through a 75 per cent vote of owners at either an annual general meeting or special general meeting. Newer strata corporations will have longer to comply, with their depreciation report deadline being six months after their newly formed strata corporationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second AGM. A depreciation report is a study which determines the funding needs of a strata corporation, related to the common components of the property which are the responsibility of the strata corporation to maintain or repair, and which require repairs and maintenance work less often than annually.

The majority of B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strata corporations have still not had their report completed. Many strata corporations have chosen to self-exempt, whether on the principle that they would like to defer indefinitely, or perhaps in the hope that with greater experience and qualified individuals the price of these reports may come down, or because they are running out of time. With the deadline approaching, many strata corporations will opt for having a self-exemption vote, even if they wish to have the report completed in the near future. A vote to selfexempt could be presented, along with a resolution to fund and complete the depreciation report in the new year. If your strata corporation has already completed their report or deferred through self-exemption, you have met the current legislated requirements. However, if your strata corporation has still not addressed this issue, the time is now. For the full story, visit www.bclocalnews.com/business/ realestate/228659901.html

White Rock luxury and gorgeous views at Saltaire By Kerry Vital

White Rock is one of the Lower Mainlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most popular cities, with its own character and unique style. Now developer Ledingham McAllister is putting its own stamp on the area with Saltaire, its 36-unit condominium development just moments from the beach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;White Rock is where people come to play,â&#x20AC;? says Ledingham McAllister Senior VicePresident of Marketing and Design Manuela Mirecki. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buyers at Saltaire live where others

play.â&#x20AC;? Built in a contemporary West Coast style, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plenty of curb appeal at Saltaire. Cultured stone and heavy timber elements combine with elegant brick and wood detailing to present a beautiful picture. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to maximize the amount of windows and view vistas,â&#x20AC;? Mirecki says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s built in an L-shape, which maximizes the number of corner homes.â&#x20AC;? The one- and three-bedroom homes range from approximately 720 to 1,634 square feet, with nine-foot ceilings and engineered hardwood flooring in the main living areas. Huge windows let the light pour in, making your home feel expansive and open. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can sit in your living room and see Semiahmoo Bay,â&#x20AC;? Mirecki says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really brings the outdoors in.â&#x20AC;? The largest two-bedroom-and-den homes, which Mirecki calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;the rotunda homesâ&#x20AC;? are

particularly amazing, with seriously gorgeous interior architecture and views. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You get unbelievable sweeping vistas and decks in these homes,â&#x20AC;? says Mirecki. There are also exposed wood beams in a sunburst pattern on the ceiling and an incredible amount of space to relax or entertain. Among the gorgeous features youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find at Saltaire are gourmet kitchens with stainlesssteel appliances, generous breakfast bars and islands and your choice of two designer colour schemes, Classic and Contemporary. The Classic scheme includes Shaker cabinetry in a classic white finish, complemented by white quartz stone countertops and a Bianco Venatino marble backsplash. The Contemporary scheme features flat-panel walnut finish cabinetry and natural grey quartz stone countertops with a gloss-white ripple effect backsplash. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone comments on the kitchen,â&#x20AC;? says

Mirecki. In the bathrooms, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find porcelain tile flooring and a modern rectangular undermount sink. Some homes include frameless glass showers with a porcelain tile surround, while the luxurious master ensuite holds a soaker tub. Every home includes a large outdoor space with stunning views of Boundary Bay or the North Shore mountains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our sales manager says sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never received more compliments on a project before,â&#x20AC;? says Mirecki. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had literally thousands of people through our display suites.â&#x20AC;? Saltaire is located just off the White Rock boardwalk, so residents can easily take advantage of everything the area has to offer. Whether youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the mood for shopping, dining or recreation activities, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re within walking distance. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also have easy access to Highway 99. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re right in the middle of a pedestrianfriendly walking district,â&#x20AC;? Mirecki says.

It could be at the chalk art festival on Main Street (see below!), or one of the many other events, like movie nights in the summer or resident parties. How about chatting with fellow dog owners at the Morgan Crossing Dog Park, or meeting during a class or workout at Steve Nash Sports Club. Or just see and meet lots of the people who live and work at Morgan Crossing… and maybe even ask out your cute neighbour, Amy.

OBITUARIES

WARD, Stewart Hadley June 7, 1923 - Oct. 12, 2013 Hadley passed away peacefully in his sleep at Peace Portal Lodge. He was born and raised in Edmonton, and served in the RCAF during World War II. He taught for many years in Manitoba. In 2004 he moved to White Rock / South Surrey to be closer to his family. Though he only lived here for nine years he grew to love the natural beauty of the area, and made many friends here. The family would like to thank Dr. Bredenkamp who looked after Hadley so well, and for the staff of Peace Portal Lodge who provided him with such good care during his stay with them. Hadley is survived by his wife Wilda, his son David (Elaine), his grandsons Matthew, Jonathan, Daniel, and several nephews and their families. At Hadley’s request there will be no funeral. Instead a Celebration of Life will be held by the members of his family. If people wish to make a donation in Hadley’s memory, the family asks that it be made to the Parkinson’s Society.

Limit access to booze, cash, high-risk slot machines: report

New steps urged to curb problem gambling Jeff Nagel Black Press

B.C. does too little to fight problem gambling and should consider new steps, from making it harder to get alcohol and cash in casinos to removing the most addictive high-risk slot machines. Those recommendations come from Provincial Health Officer Dr. Perry Kendall, who tackled the health impacts of gambling last week with the release of his annual report titled “Lower the Stakes.” Chief among the findings is that B.C. underspends other provinces in prevention and treatment for problem gambling – it invests about half the national average on a per-capita basis. Liquor access is one area of risk the province could tighten, Kendall said, perhaps through reduced hours of alcohol service at Perry Kendall casinos or by raising drink health officer prices. He said gambling delivers endorphins that stimulate pleasure centres of the brain. “If you also have alcohol and add that to the mix and you’ve got an ATM there with an unlimited cash amount, you’ve definitely got a scenario where people are going to behave less and less responsibly.” Banning ATMs or requiring players to set an advance limit on what they might spend is another idea advanced in the report. It also zeroes in on high-risk electronic gaming machines – the slots designed by manufacturers to generate the most compulsive behaviour. Kendall suggested they be replaced with lower risk models and urged the province to post the risk rating on each machine so gamblers could choose a lower-risk option. Gerald Thomas of the Centre for Addictions Research, a co-author of the report, said the province has high, medium and low risk ratings for all of the slot machines in B.C. casinos and should disclose how many it has of each. Kendall noted government is in a conflict of interest because it relies heavily on gambling profits but is also responsible for protecting vulnerable citizens. “This is a public health issue,” he said, adding the time may be right for a “fulsome

The province’s top doctor, Perry Kendall, has made a number of recommendations to help reduce problem gambling in B.C. discussion on the benefits and the risks” of gambling in light of rejections of new casinos over the past two years by Surrey and Vancouver. Any new decisions to expand gambling should come with an assessment of the risk to problem gamblers and be contingent on reducing the overall share of revenue extracted from them, the report recommends. There’s been no detailed study of problem gambling in B.C. in several years but new research is slated for next year. According to 2007 statistics, 3.7 per cent of B.C. residents are at “moderate risk” and 0.9 per cent are classified as problem gamblers. Kendall noted the two groups account for 26 per cent of total gambling revenue despite making up less than five per cent of

the population. There are 160,000 gamblers in the two risky groups but only 4,000 calls per year to a problem gambling helpline, suggesting the number of people who could be helped is “much higher.” Kendall argues the B.C. Lottery Corp. could do more to identify problem gamblers – possibly using data on their gambling gathered through a loyalty card program – and then dispatching staff to attempt treatment interventions. The report calls on the province to devote at least 1.5 per cent of gambling revenue to problem gambling initiatives, tripling the current outlay. It also urges school classes to warn children of the dangers of gambling, focusing on students in grades 10 to 12.

Provincial gambling revenue per capita climbed 56 per cent over the last decade from $353 per person in 2002 to $552 by 2011. The $2.1-billion a year industry delivers nearly $900 million in net profits to government. B.C. Finance Minister Mike de Jong said in a statement the province this year increased its Responsible Gambling program budget by 30 per cent. “We take the social costs of gambling seriously,” he said, adding the province and BCLC will provide $11 million for responsible gambling this year. De Jong said the province is committed to continually improving but will review the performance of its current programs before considering any more spending.

Marijuana petitioners off target at 30-day mark Jeff Nagel Black Press

Pot reformers fell short of their sign-up target for the first third of their campaign to force a provincial referendum on marijuana enforcement. Sensible BC spokesman Dana Larsen said

the campaign had 65,000 signatures as of Oct. 9 – 15,000 less than their aim of 80,000 by the 30-day mark of the 90-day petition drive. “We’re a little bit behind the target we set,” Larsen said. But he’s confident the campaign can get signatures of 10 per cent of eligible voters in

Faith

every B.C. district. That would take 300,000 signatures in total, but Larsen said the aim is for 450,000 to provide a buffer against signatures declared invalid. The campaign aims to pass legislation that would bar police from spending any time or resources enforcing the federal law against

possessing small amounts of marijuana. Defeat in any single district means the campaign fails. Even if it succeeds, a referendum is not automatic – the legislature could introduce the proposed Sensible Policing Act but not put it to a vote. Petition locations are on the Sensible BC website at sensiblebc.ca.

Metro’s contentious new rules need provincial approval

Garbage export ban advances Jeff Nagel Black Press

It now falls to the province to decide whether Metro Vancouver can ban the export of garbage beyond its boundaries, putting what some say is an unfair limit on business. A proposed waste flow bylaw that’s been fought by garbage haulers was approved by the Metro board Oct. 11, sending it to the provincial environment ministry for approval. The bylaw would ban shipments to unapproved out-of-region destinations, such as an Abbotsford transfer station that in turn sends it to a U.S. landfill. Some haulers pay an estimated $70 per tonne to dump there, rather than $107 per tonne charged by Metro Vancouver at in-region transfer stations, and they don’t face Metro-imposed bans on dumping various recyclables. Their ability to undercut other haulers that pay full Metro tipping fees and abide by the bans are resulting in a growing flow of garbage east that Metro directors say must be stopped so the regional district isn’t bled of critical revenue. “Waste is leaving the system and that means we’re not achieving our environmental goals, our diversion goals and we’re losing revenue to support Metro Van-

The decision to export the region’s garbage now lies with the provincial government. couver programs,” said Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie, who chairs Metro’s zero waste committee. Some business groups have denounced the bylaw as one that will force customers to pay more than necessary. Their objections have been amplified by paid lobbyists – including former BC Liberal MLA John Les (Chilliwack), who represents the Cache Creek landfill operators – as well as some Metro directors. “I don’t think Metro Vancouver should be creating a monopoly on something like garbage,” West Vancouver Mayor Michael Smith said, arguing the region shouldn’t frustrate business creativity in finding new waste solutions. “Metro Vancouver continues on a crash course to raise costs for

residents and businesses alike,” Grant Hankins, district manager for hauling firm BFI Canada, told the committee Oct. 3. “You’re picking winners and losers.” An earlier version of the bylaw was defeated in September but it was quickly retooled and revived. One change would allow cities to exempt specific apartment buildings from the requirement coming in 2015 to separate all organic food waste. Garbage from those buildings would have to go to an approved material-recovery facility (MRF) where organics and other recyclables would be extracted from waste. The bylaw creates some room for mixed-waste MRFs, which proponents say could pull out much more recyclable material, helping lift the poor 15 per cent recycling rate in multifamily buildings. Exempting select older apartment buildings from the organics ban will also solve a major problem for cities. Metro has been accused of trying to pen up garbage in the region to feed a future new garbage incinerator. But the bylaw is also backed by recycling businesses that say they have flourished under Metro’s source separation policies, which would be undermined without imposition of flow control rules.

Compass cards will reduce cheating, say TransLink officials

Fare-evasion ‘will be rare’ Jeff Nagel Black Press

TransLink’s new Compass cards will be vulnerable to a new form of cheating but officials think it will be rare and say the transit system will still be policed to root out those who board without paying the right fare. The new payment system, rolling out over the next several months, charges a default three zones when a passenger taps in to board and reduces the fare charged to one or two zones if they tap out after travelling the lesser distance. Fare evaders who board a bus could tap out using the reader at the exit door without disembarking and pay just one zone while continuing to ride further for free. But TransLink vicepresident Mike Madill said the loophole to underpay on buses isn’t one cheaters can exploit anywhere. Eighty per cent of the 250 bus routes run within the same zone anyway, so it will only be an issue on the other 50 routes that cross zone boundaries. And he said only buses between Coquitlam and Vancouver pass through three zones – the rest just span two zones. It could be a bigger problem in the future, he said, if TransLink eliminates the current zones and shifts to a system that charges fares based on the actual kilometres travelled. Madill said SkyTrain passengers who try the same thing – tapping in to get past faregates and then immediately tapping out without exiting to pay for just one zone before riding for two or three – won’t be able to get out through the gates later without tapping out again. And the system will detect the second tap out and charge the user two or three zones accordingly. TransLink officials have long cautioned the gated system, like others in the world, will not be invincible to determined cheaters and Madill doubts most of them will use Compass cards. “If somebody’s going to evade the issue on the SkyTrain then they’ll find a way to evade the

New compass cards should make fare evasion rare, predicts TransLink officials. gates going in and going out,” he predicted. Some may leap over or slide under the gates at SkyTrain stations, or pull an unpaid friend or two through on the tap of just one card. Fare evaders who now walk onto buses past the driver without paying won’t face any new obstacles. Hightech cheaters might try to hack or counterfeit smart cards. All of that underpins the need for continued fare checking and enforcement in the fare-paid zones on both buses and SkyTrain, which TransLink says has always been its plan. Transit Police and transit security officers will be equipped with handheld readers that let them check passengers’ cards to ensure they aren’t cheating. Anyone caught faces a $173 fine, which escalates if left unpaid. It may be easier to spot cheaters – particularly ones who vault the gates. “We’ll have teams around to watch for things like that,” Madill said. But although there are live cameras that monitor the faregates, there is no plan for officers to use the video feed to catch violators. Madill said the cameras are more for customer service so attendants can assist people having difficulty. “Theoretically, they can alert staff if somebody jumps the gate but I don’t think that’s going to be the main activity,” he said. “We don’t have the resources to have people monitoring video all the time,” added Transit Police spokesperson Anne Drennan. The Compass card and faregate system is now estimated to cost $194 million, up $23 million from earlier

estimates. TransLink originally opposed turnstiles,

returns up to

arguing revenue recouped from fare evaders would never cover the costs. But the system was mandated by the provincial government and TransLink planners decided smart cards would bring many advantages, including convenience. Better data on passenger movements is expected to help TransLink craft more efficient routes and schedules.

Monthly pass, other breaks urged to shift big rigs off Pattullo

Port Mann changes eyed for trucks Jeff Nagel Black Press

The provincial government is considering changes to how much it charges trucks to cross the tolled Port Mann Bridge. Most regular drivers face a doubling in the tolls they pay from $1.50 to $3 a crossing come December, when yearlong half-price discounts expire that were offered to File photo encourage early sign-ups. Lower tolls for trucks is being considered for the Port Mann. That increase is “locked in” and won’t be reconsidered, Unlike other drivers, truckers added to the Port Mann.
