Unanimous call for full public hearings on planned coal-export terminal

City of Surrey joins anti-coal chorus Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Surrey city council is adding its voice to growing opposition to Fraser Surrey Docks’ proposal to build a new coal-export terminal. Late Monday night, the politicians voted unanimously to not support the proposal, and to ask Port Metro Vancouver to commission an independently conducted, comprehensive health-impact assessment. They also want full public hearings on the project. The stand puts Surrey in line with New

Westminster, White Rock, Langley and Vancouver, where similar motions have been passed either opposing expanded coal exports outright or calling for public hearings and independent reviews before a decision is made. The Metro Vancouver board voted 21-4 to oppose the project – which would export up to four million tonnes of coal per year – outright. Numerous MLAs and MPs have also written in opposition. Monday afternoon, about 100 people streamed into Surrey council chambers to express their objection to rail cars filled with

coal travelling through Surrey. The protest came as Fraser Surrey Docks is expected to soon release the results of an environmental-impact assessment ordered by the port authority to further address public concerns about the project. The terminal proposes to open a loading facility that would transfer coal coming by rail through White Rock and South Surrey to barges that would sail down the Fraser River and across the Strait of Georgia to Texada Island, where it would be transferred again to ocean-going ships. i see page A4

A former South Surrey photographer, currently based in Bali, has won a top award in the world’s largest and most prestigious naturephoto competition. Mike Veitch won honours in one of the categories of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year awards, presented Oct. 15 in London, England. Presented by the British Natural History

Staff Reporter

Museum and BBC Wildlife Magazine, the awards, now in their 49th year, drew more than 43,000 image entries in all categories from photographers around the globe. Veitch’s winning image is of a young whale shark sucking on a net full of fish, taken in Cenderwasih Bay, Indonesia, with a Nikon camera in an underwater housing. It was judged best in the ‘World In Our Hands’ category, aimed at exploring the complex relationship

between people and the environment, and documenting in thought-provoking fashion how human actions affect the natural world. “The whale sharks in the area have learned over the years to associate local fishing platforms with an easy source of food because the fishermen mount huge lights at night above the platforms to attract small baitfish, which they sell in the local markets,” Veitch told Peace Arch News. i see page A4

Housing and Land Reserve but was removed commercial development would

be built on the edges of the property, on both the eastern and western halves. There is some urban development on the east side in the Boundary Bay area, and it is understandable that residents there would object to a large number (950 have been proposed) of new homes nearby. From a planning perspective, the best area for the bulk of new homes would be on the west side, adjacent to the more developed part of Tsawwassen and shopping and commercial areas. Delta council will likely be handling this proposal with a 10-foot pole. A decision in 1989, after the longest public hearing in Canada, to allow rezoning of the property brought about an almost-total turfing of council at the next election, and the rezoning was promptly overturned. That election in 1990 drew a 55 per cent turnout at the polls, which is almost certainly a modern-day record for turnout in a larger Metro Vancouver municipality. Given that the province plans to replace the Massey tunnel with a new bridge, and that there will be intensive development on TFN lands, it seems reasonable to allow development on a portion of the Southlands property. However, the emotional appeals of opponents of the project may well convince council to again deny this application. If so, it will be interesting to see what steps developer Sean Hodgins will take next. Frank Bucholtz writes Thursdays for the Peace Arch News. He is the editor of the Langley Times.

Semiahmoo Secondary social-action club hosts African authors

Kenyan warriors share fight for education Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

With a simple gesture, two warriors became Totems Tuesday. The distinction – Semiahmoo Totems T-shirts – was bestowed on Wilson Meikuaya and Jackson Ntirkana following a presentation hosted by Semiahmoo Secondary’s social-action club, the Globalizers. Dressed in traditional Maasai warrior garb, Meikuaya and Ntirkana – authors of The Last Maasai Warriors – were invited to the school to share what they experienced in standing up for the right to education. The two men, who hail from Kenya, were among the last of their generation to participate in the age-old Maasai tradition that required them to kill a lion to become war-

riors. They are also among the first to be educated. Meikuaya told the students that he was around three years old when he first learned about school, but his parents told him that “school was a place that took children away from their parents.” He was told if he saw people from the government looking for children who were not in school that “we were supposed to run.” As a teenager, Meikuaya’s parents told him if he killed a lion, he could attend high school. “School gives me courage to set a goal for my future,” he said. Semi’s Sahir Shivji, who is president of the Globalizers Club, said the club’s connection with, and ongoing support of, Free The Children – an international charity that works to

empower children and youth as port students in post-secondary agents of change – facilitated the education. warriors’ visit.

Grave markers provided for families in need

‘He deserves his name,’ carver says Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Last year, Ves Vukovic found out that a good friend of his was dead. To make matters worse, although his Serbian buddy was buried in Surrey, Vukovic couldn’t find where he was laid to rest. After a lengthy hunt, Vukovic eventually found his friend’s grave, only to see that it had no marker. Vukovic said his grief was compounded by the discovery his friend was buried with such anonymity. So he went to work on a nice piece of granite to create a headstone. It was a year later when Anita Briscoe’s older brother, Jason, died of cancer at the age of 46. Because of another illness, Jason had been collecting disability income, and was buried by the provincial government under a new program for people in need. In September, Briscoe found out her brother was buried without a grave marker. “It made me feel my promise to him wasn’t complete,” said Briscoe, who arranged for a

An anti-coal rally in New Westminster Sunday attracted hundreds to the Quay.

Protesters pick up steam train to the U.S. On Sunday, more than 200 people demonstrated at a rally in New Westminster to register their opposition to expanded exports of coal through Port Metro Vancouver. Although the four million additional tonnes of coal is much less than that already exported through the region via terminals at Deltaport and North Vancouver, opponents argue it could be a first step toward greatly increased shipments out of Surrey. The final decision is the port’s, but opponents hope that by intensifying public pressure and concerns lodged by some local city councils, the Metro Vancouver board and the region’s medical health officers will kill the project. – with files from CTV

The Ladies Auxiliary Famous Meat Pie Sale is Back!

South Surrey lot to cost $2 beginning Monday

Park-and-ride fees to launch Starting next week, commuters who leave their vehicles at the South Surrey Park-andRide will need to make sure to pack $2 for the privilege. The fee to park for the day – announced last year – kicks in Monday. It remains unclear, however, exactly when a $4.5-million expansion to the lot will be ready for use. TransLink spokesman Derek Zabel said this week the new lot – located on the west side of King George Boulevard, across from the main lot – is “nearly complete.” “Once construction of the lot is complete and the licence agreement with the provincial government is completed, we will liaise with the provincial government to have the expanded lot open,” Zabel said by email. The new lot will have space for an estimated 300 vehicles. The main lot holds about 480.

On Sale for 3 DAYS ONLY Pick up dates: Tuesday, November 5 Wednesday, November 6 and Thursday, November 7 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Chicken or Beef 3 for $10

File photo

Beginning Monday, it will cost $2 to park a vehicle at the South Surrey’s Park-and-Ride. The fee was announced last year. The new fees – including increases at some existing pay lots – are anticipated to generate $2.2 million. They were approved by TransLink’s board last October, with fees at each lot to “reflect the level of service and what we can do,” thenchair Nancy Olewiler

said at the time. The fees are also expected to give users of busy park-andrides a better chance of finding a stall, by encouraging some drivers to leave their vehicles at home and catch a feeder bus instead. Last year,

overcrowding at the South Surrey lot led TransLink to begin towing incorrectly parked vehicles. Zabel said there are no plans at this time to have fees at any of TransLink’s park-andride lots payable using the Compass Card. – Tracy Holmes

Nothing but the truth

P

rime Minister Stephen Harper said in August that he wasn’t planning to appoint any new senators in the near future. No doubt his resolve has been strengthened in recent weeks. His appointments of Pamela Wallin, Mike Duffy and Patrick Brazeau to the Senate, at least of late, have not gone well for him. Now, Harper must distance himself from the people he once recommended to an institution he’d like to do away with. He must also persuade Canadians that actions of the Office of the Prime Minister have only a tenuous connection to the prime minister himself. Harper is now claiming that former journalists Duffy and Wallin – previously valued fundraisers for the Conservative party – and their colleague, Brazeau, are guilty of abusing the public purse. That’s why he’s fully behind the Senate resolution to suspend the three without pay or benefits – even though many have argued such punitive suspensions violate due process. But Harper must recognize there is also a perceived gap in his own credibility. He denied, when the scandal surfaced, that he was involved in Duffy’s repayment of unjustified living expenses, but his tune has been changing as the embattled senators voice their side of the story. Their accounts allege backroom deals to cover up the scandal, followed by threats from the PMO and senate colleagues to repay the expenses and, subsequently, to resign to avoid further embarrassing the party. Now, Harper says he did tell Duffy – in front of his caucus – to repay the money claimed, although he categorically denies Duffy’s account of a private meeting between himself, Duffy and former PMO chief of staff Nigel Wright to discuss it. In response to questions about Wright’s $90,000 cheque to Duffy to cover the repayment, Harper – who previously said Wright “resigned” – now says Wright was “dismissed” for his lapse of judgment. Critics say Harper has seriously mishandled the Senate-expenses affair by hewing to a familiar line of stonewalling in hopes the scandal would simply die quietly. No chance of that now. While it’s clear the self-serving excuses of Duffy, Wallin and Brazeau have not rehabilitated them in the public eye, Harper should realize they have raised serious questions about his own credibility. It’s time for all the parties – including the prime minister – to testify under oath to get to the truth.

by without more news of the weird, of this school or that school banning this activity or that sport. It seems that if a kid is looked at the wrong way during an activity, that activity will become the latest dodo bird of kids’ sports. Administrators at Weber Middle School in Long Island , NY, have banned tag, baseballs, footballs, soccer balls and lacrosse balls. If that wasn’t ridiculous enough, cartwheels have also been banned as a recess activity — unless those cartwheels are supervised. Up in Nashua, N.H., the principal at Charlotte Avenue Elementary has banned tag because the venerable game can involve aggressive pushing. Not surprisingly, more than one parent has complained about these bans. It’s been said our kids live in a bubblewrap world, one in which they are sent outside wearing armour fit for a knight, one in which they mark “play-dates” in their calendar, rather than run down the street and knock on a buddy’s door. It’s all well and good to wish for your child to glide through those early years with nary a scratch — but it’s wishful thinking. Childhood equals all sorts of pain and to break a bone or bust a nose and take a puck to the teeth are rites of passages that can never be erased — even if the next school bans walking due to a chance of tripping. Let’s recycle that bubble wrap and let our kids breathe — yes, even if there is a chance they get the hiccups. Christopher Foulds is editor of Kamloops This Week.

Peace Arch News

No need to cut all of the trees Editor: Re: A lone voice on the wilderness, Oct. 24 letters. I agree with Sybil Rowe’s letter. I am constantly astounded to see the clear cutting of every new development. Replacing the trees doesn’t replace the beautiful “second growth” of native trees that we are used to enjoying. Sybil’s example of the Grandview Heights pool is a good one. The developers should be made to develop the land and vegetation without altering all of it. City hall should demand better planning. Lois Smith, Surrey Q I am absolutely appalled to see what the city has done at this building site. They have clear cut what looks to be five acres of land. Anything green is gone. Was it not possible to work around any of the bigger trees that used to stand in this area? How is it that Surrey bylaws require a homeowner to obtain an arbourist report and permit to cut down one tree in a backyard, but the City of Surrey itself cuts trees and strips acres at a time? What happened to the doctrine that has been taught to my kids, by the Surrey School Board, that trees are the planet’s lungs and should therefore be respected as our own? How, after pursuing private developers for indiscriminate tree cutting, can the city possibly justify what they have done? The pool site is just the beginning of a huge project that includes playing fields and a high school, on perhaps 50 or more acres of heavily treed land. I hope the city intends a far more sensitive approach when developing those next phases, because when I look at what they have done so far, I see no regard for the environment or any consideration for nearby residents. I am disgusted! Richard Gardiner, Surrey

Under the guise of anti-bullying Editor: Re: Bullying policy puts us at risk, Oct. 24 letters. Letter-writer Marlene Penner’s statement that Surrey School District regulation 9410.2 is a misuse of public schools to “propagandize a particular viewpoint without regard to the wishes of parents” is ridiculous. This regulation ‘propagandizes’ nothing but a safe and caring learning environment for all students – something every Christian parent should want. Does her idea of the UN Declaration of Human Rights giving parents “prior right to choose the kind of education given to their children” apply only to her? What about the parents of gay and

lesbian children? Is it not also their right? Is it not their right to know that their children are receiving a safe, unbiased education? As a Christian parent – as I am – I find it abhorrent that blatant ignorance be represented in the guise of a child’s safety to be shielded from the promotion of an “unhealthy lifestyle.” The only positive point is that it certainly highlights the shortsighted underpinnings of the writer’s logic. These children are not “choosing” to be gay or lesbian. What child would “choose” to be alienated and ostracized by ignorant people? To suffer, struggle or even die from a sexual identification that gives them no benefit in our society? Penner says “kids with traditional values will be subject to bullying.” Again, ridiculous. Gay and lesbian children do not promote discrimination against straight children; they do not harm, ostracize or exclude them, because of their sexual orientation. The enormous irony in the letter is that while it claims to be promoting an idea that would increase a child’s safety, instead it

is promoting a concept of elitism, violence and hatred that has been highly documented as having resulted in the physical and mental harm of children. If some insist on harbouring such views, perhaps they should consider creating their own school system. All children have the right to safety during the time of their public education – regardless of race, sexual orientation, etc. – and district regulation 9410.2 is absolutely a positive step in the right direction. Jason Johnson, Surrey Q It is worth noting that the policy, according to www.dailyxtra.com, “…mandates training for teachers, support for GSAs, specialized counsellor training and inclusion of supportive books in libraries and curriculum, among other measures.” This means there will be training for teachers and counsellors to be instruments of propaganda, support for “Gay-Straight Alliances” (GSAs) that spread propaganda among students, and the altering of curriculum to make sure that the pro-homosexuality message

permeates it. It is a pattern that is all too familiar to those of us who have studied the reports of such activism in school districts in Canada and in many other parts of the Western world. The program involves re-education for parents as well as teachers, and mandates the use of positive images regarding the homosexual lifestyle. Judging from what has happened in other school districts, students will be taught: to question their own sexual orientation; to admire homosexual heroes; to regard homosexual unions as equivalent to traditional marriage; and to despise religious teaching that prohibits homosexual behaviour. Ted Hewlett, Surrey Q What a terrible lapse in good judgment printing Marlene Penner’s letter was. Intolerance poorly guised in the strawman argument of reverse bullying and “traditional values” is intolerance all the same. That she suggests folks Google the “Centre for Disease Control” on this topic should have been your first hint not to publish such dreck. Nathan Roeters, New Westminster

200 - 2411 160 Street, Surrey, B.C. V3S 0C8

Pairing a theatre/arts centre with two highrise towers shouldn’t be dismissed as a ‘fob’, writes Myles Murchison.

We missed arts opportunity once Editor: Re: Divided views over arts-centre towers, Oct. 24. I wish to disagree with David Cann, president of the Semiahmoo Residents Association, who says the proposed 350-seat theatre included in the twin towers – and I quote from your story – “seems like a bit of a fob.” In your paper’s story, Cann noted “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.” As it happens, I wrote about the Bosa development for BC Business magazine, and the real story was that while Bosa valiantly tried to gain the support of the local visual-arts community for an art gallery at Miramar, virtually no local artist of prominence would step forward to endorse the concept. That’s when Bosa gave up the space for a community centre and, instead, donated $275,000 to the White Rock Players’ Club for the refurbishing of the now-Coast Capital Playhouse Theatre – which some people called a bribe and others understood to be, like the Reifel Cooke Group’s proposed theatre, the cost developers are obliged to pay in order to receive zoning concessions from city governments. The point is, instead of opposing these concessions and calling them “a fob,” local artists, performers and theatre audiences would do better pressing Reifel Cooke

to build and equip a first-class, fully professional theatre space in return for their support. And in answer to Cann’s questioning “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,” I suggest he try to produce a local theatre run in South Surrey – as I have – and he will find the Playhouse schedule filled with the theatre’s own productions and the Wheelhouse bound by the kind of rules and restrictions one would associate with a high-school administration naturally more focused on students than producers. Perhaps a new theatre would attract more professional theatre productions, as it has in Deep Cove, or be an inviting place for Vancouver’s Arts Club Theatre Company road shows, if the facility meets their standards. I have no argument with people who stand against a 20-storey tower in South Surrey, but for those who would like to see a new theatre and arts facility in our community, this is the time to pursue Reifel Cooke and offer support in exchange for a professional, state-of-theart theatre. The window of opportunity in the residential development business is brief. The time to ensure this concession is now. Myles Murchison, Surrey

Damage projected from shaking, tsunami, slides and fires

Quake could cost billions Jeff Nagel

NOW OPEN

Black Press

Damage to southwestern B.C. buildings, roads, pipelines and other critical infrastructure could hit $75 billion in a major earthquake, according to a new study. The 345-page report – commissioned by the Insurance Bureau of Canada – modelled a 9.0-magnitude subduction zone earthquake well off the coast of Vancouver Island and Washington State. The strongest ground shaking and damage levels would be on the western side of Vancouver Island closest to the epicentre. But the report projects more overall damage in Victoria, due to its many vulnerable buildings, as well as in the Lower Mainland from moderate shaking because of the sheer number of buildings and infrastructure at risk. The modelling forecasts a highshaking intensity in areas such as Delta, Richmond and Victoria, causing extensive damage to unreinforced masonry buildings. A large area of Surrey, Burnaby, Coquitlam and Vancouver Island would experience the secondhighest level of shaking intensity, significantly damaging poorly built buildings and causing slight to moderate damage to better structures.

New and Walk-in Patients Welcome!

Your health and wellness is our priority Insurance Bureau of Canada image

Photo simulation of liquefaction damage in Richmond that could result from a major B.C. earthquake, according to a new study. The report says lowlands with risky soil types could see significant damage from ground liquefaction, causing buildings to settle, tilt or slide. Some dikes around the Fraser River delta area may also be affected, compromising their ability to prevent flooding if a tsunami wave also arrives at high tide. The report predicts some roads will be damaged and impassable, water supply and other buried services will be compromised and drivers should expect many bridges to be temporarily closed, if only for a few hours to check for damage that may be slight in most cases.

Vancouver International Airport would likely be cut off by road in the first few days due to the shutdown of access bridges. And road travel between Vancouver or Richmond and suburbs to the east and south is expected to be impaired, the report says. IBC president Don Forgeron said Canada is unprepared for such a disaster and said the bureau is launching a national conversation on how better to prepare. “If a mega-earthquake should strike in a densely populated area, insurance alone will not pay for all the damage,” he said. “Governments and consumers have a role to play.”

Ocean Park family gets into the Halloween spirit

Giving a scare Sarah Massah

Staff Reporter

t started out with a single coffin. But a few years – and a few tubes of fake blood – later, the Donnelly haunted house in Ocean Park, dubbed Terror in the Terrace, has transformed into a full-fledged cabin of horror. And it’s all thanks to 13-year-old mastermind Ethan Donnelly, with a little help from his dad, Dean. “In my old house, we lived in North Delta, it just kind of started small, and then I remember when I was five, that was when we started making these monsters, and I remember making heads for the wooden coffin, and there was a face popping through and it was super scary, but I loved it so much,” he explained. “I said, ‘Dad, let’s make more like this.’ Before it was all friendly and nice, so we wanted to make it bigger and scarier. So now the older I get, the scarier it has to be to keep up with the audience.” Now in its sixth year, and in time for All Hallow’s Eve revellers, the theme for tonight’s haunted house is Cabin in the Cornfield. Roughly 25 students from Elgin Park Secondary and Chantrell Creek Elementary have volunteered their Halloween evening to bring Ethan’s production to life from 6-9 p.m. in the hopes of scaring visitors to death. Dotted all over the Donnelly’s front yard are tombstones, a Dracula or two, and of course, the coffin that started it all. To the right of the house is the creepy cabin that will be full of ghoulish residents on Halloween – exactly how Ethan had envisioned months earlier. “Halloween is my favourite thing ever, ’cause I get to get really creative. And with my dad’s help, it all comes true. My dad really helps to make my dream come true,” he said. In order to create the illusion of a cabin, Ethan and his father transformed their basketball court with tarps and items picked up over the years from thrift stores and a few things “picked up on the side of the road,” he laughed. Set-up of the elaborate project began in early October, and included a trip to the cornfield to stock up on the 2,500 stalks that guide visitors through the twists and turns of the cabin, which features more

than 25 scary displays. “Originally it was going to be Cabin in the Forest, but then my dad explained that it would be a lot harder to get the forest look, and it wouldn’t be as realistic. So he suggested corn. So we went to a cornfield and I just saw how cool the corn was. It was

a lot better than a forest. And it’s creepier,” he said. “And of course, the scarecrows – that was something we could add.” These aren’t the average friendly-faced hay-stuffed figures that can be seen in a farmer’s field, he explained. Many feature the twisted faces of demons and monsters that pop out of the cornfield – perfect for scaring unsuspecting visitors. “We’ve done haunted houses before, but this is by far our best year,” he said. ‘When we first moved to the neighbourhood, everyone didn’t really expect it and it went

up really quick. But as people get to know us, it’s less of a shock and they’re more excited each Halloween to see what the theme is.” Striking a balance with the ghouls and monsters is the fundraising that the Donnelly’s will do in tandem with the haunted house on Halloween. Donations will be accepted throughout the night for the Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) Support Network. (At a prelaunch of the haunted house on Sunday, nearly $400 was raised.) The Donnelly’s Terror in the Terrace is located at 12919 22A Ave. $

Group takes ‘scientific approach’ to the paranormal

Hunting for ghosts Evan Seal Black Press

Got ghosts? If you have ever wondered if that strange noise or unexplained circumstance in your home or business means you may have a haunting on your hands – there’s a group of investigators who might be able to help. Over the past four years, the Pacific Coast Paranormal Research and Investigation Society has probed claims of ghosts or unexplained phenomenon at nearly 50 sites across B.C. “We try to stick to a more scientific way of finding out what is happening,” said society co-founder Paul Stevens. By using various pieces of equipment – including video cameras, still cameras, sound recorders, infra-red cameras and magnetic-field sensors – members of the society try to determine if sounds or images are caused by something tangible or unexplainable. One of the members is a high school physics teacher who has been experimenting with room temperatures. During a recent investigation, he noticed a significant drop in room temperature by seven to eight degrees,

then within seconds, it rose back to normal. No windows were opened, and no heaters turned off or on. The group has also been able to capture various “orbs” floating by the video cameras that so far can’t be explained by dust or flying insects. Another current investigation involves a trip to the Pitt Meadows Museum and Archives, where a camera picked up a shadowy figure in a window. Members tried to recreate that same image by walking past and changing the lighting, but to no avail. An electrical contractor, Stevens is a self-proclaimed skeptic, always looking for plausible reasons for seemingly paranormal activity. “I’ve been in lots of buildings, including prisons, I have never found something that was not explainable,” he said. And unlike what often appears on various reality TV shows, the work is not all adrenalin-inducing action. Pacific Coast members usually spend days reviewing tapes. “It’s very detailed work. It’s just not running around screaming.” For more, visit www.pacificcoastparanormal.ca

Baby Greyson comes home Monique Tamminga Black Press

Miracle baby Greyson is home. In July, Greyson came into this world 15 weeks early at Peace Arch Hospital, weighing in at one pound, 14 ounces. Parents Erin Heard and James O’Neill have stayed by his side at B.C. Children’s Hospital, where he remained in the neonatal intensive care unit. He had surgery to close a valve to his heart and was on a breathing machine up until late August. Doctors cleared baby Greyson to go home Oct. 17, earlier than expected. “We are so happy to have him home,” O’Neill said last week. “We have a lot of learning and

a lot of trial and error but he’s home. I even went for a walk outside with him yesterday.” O’Neill and Heard were renting a basement suite in Langley but

were forced to move, because they discovered mould in the bathroom and, even though they repaired it, Greyson’s lungs would be too fragile to handle mould spores. Their friends and co-workers rallied to help the family provide care for Greyson, as his parents didn’t qualify for employment insurance. Last month they found a place in Guildford. They chose Surrey to be closer to Greyson when he was transferred from Children’s to Surrey Memorial. Now Greyson is home, and has grown in weight and size. There are still lots of doctors’ appointments to come, but things are looking good. say his parents.

Classic West Coast architecture at Amaconâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s RedBrick By Kerry Vital

Outdoor enthusiasts will find a lot to love at Amaconâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s RedBrick, located in the growing community of Edmonds in South Burnaby. The Urban Trail is located right outside your door, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a park across the street and others within easy walking distance.

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

Among the features included in the one-, two- and threebedroom homes is engineered hardwood flooring in the entry, kitchen, living and dining rooms. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find polished stone countertops and a full-height stone backsplash in the kitchen, complemented by stainless-steel appliances and laminate flatpanel kitchen cabinetry with a modern square-edge profile. The bathrooms are soothing and luxurious, with polished stone slab countertops, oversized polished porcelain tiles and their own laminate cabinetry. The exterior is as beautiful as the interiors, with West Coast architecture that lives up to the

developmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name, expansive windows and balconies, and tons of green space. Residents will have access to an exercise facility, TV lounges and meeting rooms, a party kitchen with a dining area, a games room and a crafts room. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s play area and a barbecue terrace, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the mood for some outdoor entertaining. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find public art by artists Jacqueline Metz and Nancy Chew right on-site, adding to the beauty of the development. RedBrick is perfectly situated for those who want to leave their cars behind. Commuting to downtown Vancouver will be simple, as the Edmonds SkyTrain station is nearby. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find schools right across the street, as well as shopping and dining opportunities close by. Homes at RedBrick start at $239,900. For more information, check out www.liveatredbrick.com, call 604-527-7955 or visit the presentation centre at 7008 14th Avenue, Burnaby, open daily except Fridays between noon and 5 p.m.

An eclectic mix of people call Larco Investmentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Morgan Crossing home. Many of them have purchased because of the village lifestyle, with its array of shops, restaurants and amenities right outside your front door.

Finding your perfect home at Morgan Crossing By Kerry Vital

Imagine being able to meet friends for coffee, walk out your door and go grocery shopping or browse the latest fashions, or get in a good workout, all in one spot. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to imagine that with Larco Investmentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Morgan Crossing, located in the heart of South Surrey. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all right there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just about everything anybody needs here,â&#x20AC;? says Bryan Woolley of Fingerprint Strategies.

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not an exaggeration. The village at Morgan Crossing has shopping, restaurants, community events and amenities right outside your door, whether youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for groceries at Thrifty Foods, a workout at Steve Nash Sports Club or dinner at the brand-new, just-opened Sammy Jâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grill & Bar or one of the other restaurants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also have two new restaurants coming soon,â&#x20AC;? says Woolley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be great additions to the area.â&#x20AC;? One of those two restaurants is MyShanti from well-known Vancouver chef Vikram Vij. The other is Famoso Neopolitan Pizzeria. The homes at Morgan Crossing have been selling extremely well, and Woolley notes that this is the last chance to get into the village. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People love the village,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really connecting with people.â&#x20AC;? Indeed, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wide range of people living in Morgan Crossing, including young first-

time buyers and older couples downsizing from their single-family home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone has their own reasons for wanting to live here,â&#x20AC;? Woolley says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The homes are really well-designed.â&#x20AC;? With spacious floorplans and plenty of amazing features such as engineered flooring, gorgeous countertops and an open-plan layout, buyers will easily find things to love about their new home. Morgan Crossing regularly holds community events, including car shows, fashion shows and outdoor movie nights. Living a car-free lifestyle is a huge draw for buyers at Morgan Crossing. Being able to leave the car behind and accomplish all of your errands on foot not only saves you money on gas, but it also saves you time and keeps your stress levels down. You also may find yourself entertaining at home more because everything you need for the perfect

HOWEVER YOU DEFINE COMMUNITY, WE CALL IT AN EASY WAY TO MEET AND CONNECT WITH YOUR NEIGHBOURS. It’s just one of the many reasons residents love calling Morgan Crossing home. 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. Because loving where you live should be about more than just loving your stunning condo (though we only have a few left!).

Q. Could You Give Me A Few Tips For Selling My Home Fast and For Top Dollar? A. Ifdifference you’re thinking of selling your home, how you “position” it can mean the between getting a fast, top dollar sale, and having it sit on the market for a long time. • First impressions are lasting. Look at your home as if you were driving up to it for the first time. What does the home look like? The driveway? The lawn or landscaping? Pay particular attention to the entry walkway and the front door area. Make sure all curtains are open and lights are on. • Get rid of any odors. They’re a big turn-off. Smoking and pets are the most likely cause. Have carpets cleaned and home deodorized before showing it. • A coat of paint in critical areas (kitchen, master bedroom and baths) can do wonders to change the appearance and make the home look more valuable. • Get rid of that clutter! The way you live in a home, and the way you SELL a home are two different things. You have to move anyway, so pack up all your clutter and get it out of the way. An uncluttered home looks bigger and more appealing. Make your home look like a model home.

REMEMBRANCE DAY ... LEST WE FORGET Monday, November 11th, 2013

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, Canadians are asked to pause and remember the thousands of men and women who sacrificed their lives fighting for freedom and democracy during the First World War, the Second World War, the Korean War, the Afghanistan conflict and during peacekeeping missions.

Alex House longhouse renovated

Makeover complete Sarah Massah Staff Reporter

Volunteers rolled up their sleeves and armed themselves with tools and paintbrushes earlier this month for Alexandra Neighbourhood House’s 72-Hour Longhouse Extreme Makeover. The project spanned three days, kicking off bright and early Oct. 18, with volunteers from Investors Group Financial Services and various local business teaming up with Alex House volunteers to spruce up the unique structure, which was originally built in 1979, with a fresh coat of paint and other repairs. The renovation project came to fruition in the summer of 2012, after Alex House was approached by members of Investor Group who were looking for a community project that they could support. “They came out and interviewed us a

couple of times and they really liked the idea of this project,” explained Alex House executive director Penny Bradley. “We’ve got a lot of historic buildings and we’ve been trying to figure out how to support ourselves, so this is our social enterprise. If we can maximize (the longhouse) as a rental space, then we’ll be able to sustain ourselves, overall.” The longhouse is just the tip of the iceberg for the revitalization of Alex House, Bradley explained. Now, with the project completed, the community group hopes to turn its focus to the remaining historic buildings. “They need a little bit of TLC, but they’re such major endeavours, whereas with this, we thought, ‘yeah, we can knock this one off,’” she said. “We can do this and move on to the next thing.”

Tour fundraiser planned A fundraiser to help send 30 Earl Marriott Secondary students on a battlefield tour of Europe takes place Saturday night (Nov. 2) at Sawbucks Pub, 1626 152 St. The students will be travelling to England, France and Belgium in June, and plan to visit sites including the D-Day beaches, Vimy Ridge and Passchendaele.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

South Surrey’s David Slater recounts story of First World War fighter pilot

Wartime novel inspired by family legend Alex Browne

S

Arts Reporter

outh Surrey novelist David Slater’s The Biscuit Barrel (the cookie jar, in North American parlance) is, pardon the pun, well worth dipping into. Told in sure, fast-moving prose, it’s a bittersweet love story, an exotic, continentspanning adventure and a mystery rolled into one. In the uncertain world of self-published fiction, that makes the novel – currently available at Save-On Foods at Southpoint and PriceSmart Semiahmoo Centre – a rare bird indeed. There’s also a timeliness to the book, which recaptures the atmosphere of the First World War years at the 95th anniversary of the end of the “war to end all wars.” While Slater, a self-confessed military history buff, has made sure some of the grim facts and details are there, don’t expect a dry, historical tome, or an anguished revisit of the brutal course of history. The retired bank and mining executive, a late arrival to the world of writing fiction, is – on paper and in real life – a born storyspinner. And his novel drops the reader into another time and place with the immediacy of a big-screen movie. It’s not a new comparison to him. “Everybody who’s read it says ‘this ought to be a film!’” he exclaims, heartily, his voice still bearing the slight Afrikaans lilt that confirms he is a native of Rhodesia – now known as Zimbabwe. The Biscuit Barrel does seem to have all the cinematic elements – starting with a colourful evocation of the sights and feel of colonial southern Africa and the fascination of a police procedural involving Slater’s protagonist, Hastings Follett, a young English police trooper, and his Matebele constable, Samuel Kumalo, who emerges as a compelling character. The vividness only intensifies as the novel follows Follett into a steamy love triangle, complete with explicit sex scenes; into intrigue, tragedy and the violence of war, both in Africa and on the Western Front; and a love affair with a Parisian chanteuse who survived the sinking of the Titanic. The climax of the story comes amid the doom-laden drama of war in the air, as the protagonist becomes a pilot in a fighter-bomber squadron of the British Royal Flying Corps; and in the final touching revelations of letters sealed up for

decades in the Wedgewood china biscuit barrel of the title. It may sound like a fanciful catalogue, but, oddly, the main framework of the story is true – fleshed out by Slater with a blend of genuine history, careful research and imaginative recreation. Letters – kept in just such a biscuit barrel on his grandparents’ sideboard – did find their way into his possession after his mother died, as he became custodian of family photographs and memorabilia. The letters were written by a man named Hastings, who knew his grandparents, Eddie and Bella Evans in Penhalonga, Rhodesia before the First World War – and later become a pilot in the Royal Flying Corps. And Slater’s question of a relative, during a visit to Cape Town in South Africa, “who was Hastings?” did elicit much of the family legend that became the basis of the story. “I used some poetic license,” Slater acknowledges, about the picture of the times he has created in The Biscuit Barrel.

He incorporates some famous figures who keyboards in a local folk-pop group, The were on the scene in the Paris of 1918 – Walkers, with friends John Wright and people like American authors John Dos Chuck Ingraham. Passos and e.e. Cummings – and has woven “John and I write three quarters of the in some unrelated stories of the era, from songs we play,” he says. Europe, Africa and the U.S., which also In fact, it’s only been in the last three years have a factual basis. that he’s considered himself a writer of “That’s why I call it a work of fiction,” prose, he adds. he says, adding that while Eddie and Bella “I was always a poet and a songwriter. My Evans become characters in the tale, he has other published book, Dirges and Doggerel, changed the names of other major players is all the poetry I’ve written, between 1966 subtly to protect real-life identities. and 2012.

Seniors entertainment troupe The Vaudevillians will hit the stage for their 10th annual show at Surrey Arts Centre, Nov. 9 (2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.) – and as usual they’ll be sharing their singing, comedy and hoofing skills to benefit a younger generation of performers. Audiences enjoying the talented group’s old fashioned variety show can also be assured their ticket proceeds are going to a good cause – the group’s long-established bursary for Douglas College performing arts students.

been so grateful,” says singer/ dancer Pat Trimble, a core member of the troupe, and wife of Jim Trimble, who will make a welcome return as master of ceremonies for the show, after a recent spell of ill-health. It’s especially gratifying to the senior performers, the Trimbles said, to know that the bursary makes a difference for youth who have chosen the oftendifficult path of entering the performing arts. “Many of the students have written us that if it weren’t for the bursary, they wouldn’t be able to continue with their studies,” Pat said. › see page A40

Sharing the stage with young talent â&#x20AC;ş from page A39 Another part of the Vaudevilliansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; connection with young performers will be manifest at next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show â&#x20AC;&#x201C; their co-sponsorship of the B.C. Junior Talent Competition at the PNE. Sharing the stage with them will be this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winner, Tyson Venegas â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an accomplished crooner with star charisma at the tender age of eight. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a singer, but he also plays piano and dances,â&#x20AC;? said Pat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He reminds me a great deal of Joe Given â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who was also one of our scholarship recipients,â&#x20AC;? added Jim. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very quiet and shy,â&#x20AC;? said Pat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But when he gets on stage heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so confident and poised.â&#x20AC;? The same could be said of the Vaudevillians themselves. Offstage, they may look like the grandparents and greatgrandparents they are, but onstage they transform into dynamic performers, with a telltale light in their eyes and a lightness in their step that comes from staying active in a medium they love. Helping spark their performances are such accomplished talents as dance teacher and choreographer Dann Minor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He and I have been dancing together for the last three years â&#x20AC;&#x201C; heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s found a real niche with us,â&#x20AC;? Pat said.

Contributed photo

Tyson Venegas, 9, will share the stage at the Nov. 9 showcase. The Vaudevillians troupe has also been reinvigorated by the arrival of a new director, Marilyn Remus, this year, the Trimbles said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was originally from Victoria, but she moved to the U.S. in 1967,â&#x20AC;? Jim said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She settled in Florida and was very active in musical theatre there.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a mentor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a real dynamo and very talented,â&#x20AC;? said Pat, adding that Remus has ensured there are five ensemble dance numbers in this show, as well as choreographed movement in all of the acts.

There are now 24 performing members with the Vaudevillians, ranging in age from the early senior years to 92. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every year we lose a couple and gain a couple,â&#x20AC;? said Pat, who, with Jim, is one of the two remaining original members from when the troupe was formed 13 years ago. Members keep performing as long as they are able, but the challenges of the troupeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rigorous performance and rehearsal schedule do, inevitably, lead to retirements. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do close to 30 performances a year, and rehearse once a week for 10 months, with two months off,â&#x20AC;? Jim said. The Nov. 9 performance will emphasize all the professionalism â&#x20AC;&#x201C; complete with full costuming and scenery â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that the Vaudevillians have become known for. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a two-hour show with intermission, and all the usual vaudeville stuff â&#x20AC;&#x201C; singing, dancing, comedy, solos, duos and trios,â&#x20AC;? Pat said. Weaving it all together will be Jimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s light repartee as compere, she added, noting â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where he manages to get all those jokes from.â&#x20AC;? Tickets for both the matinee and the evening performance are $20, available from the Surrey Arts Centre box office at 604-501-5566.

Recovered from injuries, South Surrey rugby star back on the pitch

Kleeberger keen on national-team return Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

It’s been a long time since Adam Kleeberger has suited up for Canada on the rugby pitch. Too long, if you ask him. For much of the last 12 months, the 29-yearold South Surrey native has been sidelined

due to injury – first, while playing overseas for London Scottish FC, he suffered a shoulder injury that required surgery, and then he had back issues that kept him off the pitch. But this Sunday in Toronto, Kleeberger will put all that behind him when he suits up for Canada against the New Zealand Maori All

Blacks, who are not that country’s official national team, but a juggernaut program nonetheless. “It’s been a long time, but I’m ready – I’ve had no issues (with his injuries),” he said. “I’m looking forward to it. It’s an opportunity for us to play against good competition.

We’re building toward the next World Cup.” The game will serve as something of a warmup for Canada’s senior men’s team, which has a busy November ahead of it. After Sunday, the team plays four games, in four different countries, in a 21-day span. Sunday’s game hits the field at 10 a.m.

Everything’s all Wright

Bayside sits at .500

Sharks ‘getting better’

Gary Ahuja Black Press

Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Despite a loss last weekend to their high-scoring rivals from south of the border, the Bayside Sharks still sit with a .500 record in the Okanagan Springs Brewery Div. 1 Rugby League. On Saturday at South Surrey Athletic Park, the Sharks – in the midst of their first season in first division after being relegated from the premier circuit last springs – dropped a 47-38 decision to Seattle RFC, who are a perfect 6-0 and have scored more points than every other side in the 10-team league. “They’re a very powerful team,” said Bayside coach Angel Cividanes, who’s in his first season at the helm of the Sharks’ top men’s team. “But we played against the best team in the league and it was close. Defensively, we played well – but Seattle has a very good counterattack. But I was very happy with how we played. Down the road, we are only going to keep getting better and better.” Saturday’s game was a free-wheeling affair – there were just five scrums, Cividanes pointed out. “It was a good, entertaining game,” Cividanes said. Though satisfied to be sitting at 3-3 through the first two months of the season, the veteran

The team’s other two losses this season have been to the UBC Thunderbirds –  who, like Seattle, are 6-0 – and Richmond, who are third in the the league, at 4-2. “All of our losses have been to the best teams,” Cividanes said. “Against UBC, we just weren’t quite ready for that one, but Richmond,

I thought we should have won that game.” The Sharks will have an opportunity to move to 4-3 Saturday, when they travel up the road to Sullivan Park for a tilt against the Surrey Beavers, who are also 3-3. And though Bayside’s top men’s squad is pushing a youth movement – many of the team’s key players are in their early 20s – they have recently had an injection of

experience into the roster. Adam Timler returned to the Bayside lineup against Seattle after a few months away, and Cividanes said other vets who have returned to the pitch this month include Jon Thiel – a former professional player in Europe who briefly coached the Sharks’ premier team in 2005 – and former captain Adam Van Stavern. “It’s really good to have those guys back,” Cividanes said.

The look on her face said it all. Nikki Wright had just scored her first goal of the season for the Trinity Western University Spartans’ women’s soccer team, momentarily tying the game at 1-1. A photo taken after the goal shows pure, raw emotion. But what it doesn’t show is all the behindthe-scenes-work that Wright put forth in the 14 months leading up to that point. “It was an Nikki Wright incredible TWU feeling, we were at home in front of our fans, my last home opener,” Wright, a 23-year-old Cloverdale native, said. The goal came in the 85th minute of the Spartans’ match against the visiting Victoria Vikes last month, in the second game of the season. “It felt the same as it was in my first year,” she said. “I remember having so much energy and loving the sport and having so much fun. I think as time went on, that kind of got taken away a little bit.” All it took was a knee injury for Wright to rediscover her passion. ••• Wright remembers everything about the play. It was July 27, 2012 and on an artificial turf field in Chilliwack. She was playing for the Fraser i see page A43

Girls volleyball tournament will feature province’s best

Valley West loses twice to defending champs

PAN Classic on the court Hawks fall to fourth Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Action is expected to be fierce on volleyball courts around South Surrey this weekend, as some of the best high-school players in the country get set for the Peace Arch News Classic. The 28-team senior girls tournament – “That’s as big as we’ve ever had it,” said organizer Gord Houchen – begins Friday afternoon, with games set for Earl Marriott, Semiahmoo and Elgin Park secondaries. The championship game will be played Saurday, 6 p.m. at Semiahmoo. As for which two teams will be playing in that final – that’s anyone’s guess. The PAN Classic usually draws some of B.C.’s top-ranked sides, and this year is no exception. Among those set to take part

Vanier Towhees – as well as triple-A contenders from Seaquam and Clayton Heights. The White Rock Christian

Academy Warriors and Richmond Christian Eagles, ranked sixth and eighth, respectively, in single-A, are also in the mix for the PAN title. Last year’s tournament was won by Elphinstone Secondary, but the Gibsons school won’t be back to defend their title this year.

Earl Marriott girls claim Volleyfest title The Earl Marriott Mariners’ senior girls volleyball team is on quite a roll lately. The team has advanced to the championship game of three straight tournaments – two weekends ago, claiming the silver medal at Handsworth Secondary – and last weekend captured the gold medal at Volleyball BC’s

VolleyFest in Vancouver. In the final, the Mariners edged the Elgin Park Orcas – with whom the Mariners have had plenty of close battles with already this season – by scores of 25-20, 15-25, 15-7. In quarter-finals, EMS defeated Rick Hansen Secondary, and in semifinals, beat Moscrop.

Natalie Phillips and Brielle Campbell were Marriott’s players of the tournament, according to head coach Mark Cassell. On Monday, Nov. 4, the Mariners will play a league tilt against South Delta, the No. 1-ranked quad-A team in the province. The game begins at 6:30 p.m. at EMS.

The Hawks will face-off twice against the 2-7-1 Fraser Valley Thunderbirds next weekend, with games Saturday in Abbotsford and Sunday at 3 p.m. at the Langley Events Centre. – Rick Kupchuk

When I had a bad game, I would hate the sport. But I realized, when it was taken away from me, that the sport doesn’t define who I am.” ••• The surgery was done in two parts, first the meniscus repair and a few months later, the ACL reconstruction. While Wright says her knee feels strong, there is some soreness from time to time. Wright is being eased back into the lineup. “I kind of played a similar role with the Whitecaps when I was younger, and I valued every minute that I got,” she explained.

Welcome to the driver’s seat

…they can be rugged on a work site and luxurious for all occupants.

Visit the RAM trucks photo gallery at drivewayBC.ca

A big part of the RAM brand success has been built on the sturdy and macho exterior styling.

ZACK SPENCER

Question

Rounding up and riding the RAM range 2014 RAM Roundup The full-size truck market is big business for automakers and a big deal for the businesses and people who depend on them. For almost five decades the Ford F-150 has been the best selling truck, with little chance they will lose that crown in the near future. What has been happening, over the last few years, is a strong shift from General Motors to RAM in terms of establishing the second best selling truck brand. The rise in RAM popularity can be traced back to a few key changes over the last several years, from muscular styling to class-leading interiors, a refined ride, plus engine and transmission advancements. I drove the 2014 RAM model range recently, on a beautiful fall day, just outside of Toronto. The “RAM Roundup” was a great opportunity to get my hands on these new trucks well before they arrive at BC dealerships. Looks A big part of the RAM brand success has been built on the sturdy and macho exterior styling. Front and centre is a grille that was enlarged, but better integrated, for the 2013 model year. Depending on the trim the grille finish can be chrome, painted or with a different insert. This feature is one RAM owners love so, in this case, larger

is better. Behind the grille are “active shutters” that close at higher speeds to help send the wind around the vehicle to improve aerodynamic efficiency. The same idea was also behind the longer side step, which helps reduce buffeting down the side of the trucks. One option that I find fascinating, and would seriously consider, is the $1500 air suspension that can be lowered for easier entry into the RAM or loading into the bed. Plus this system automatically lowers over 100km/h to also reduce aerodynamic drag. At lower speeds and for off-road duties, the air suspension can be raised for better ground clearance. Having had a chance to drive several RAM trucks with this feature I notice the already smooth ride is even better and the cabin is further insulated from vibration. Inside In the past trucks were typically used for work. Today, trucks have grown in popularity because they can be rugged on a work site and luxurious for all occupants. Having driven the Ford and new GM trucks recently, I can easily say that RAM still has the lead in interior design and finish with the Chevrolet and GMC right behind. (Ford is looking dated but look for an all-new F-150 in 2015). The centre console can be equipped with an 8.3-inch Uconnect communications and entertainment screen. In addition, there is a large

7-inch screen behind the steering wheel for fully customizable instant information readouts. The dash and seats can be trimmed in leather typically found in luxury cars not long ago.

While I don‘t know which vehicle will win each category, the following vehicles were the top performers in acceleration and braking exercises performed at TestFest or claimed best fuel economy: • Acceleration 0 to 100 km/hour: Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S 4Matic (4.1 seconds) • Acceleration 80 to 120 km/hour: Corvette Stingray (3.2 seconds) • Braking 100 to 0 km/hour: Corvette Stingray (34.4 metres) • Fuel economy city: Ford CMAX (1.9 L/100 km) • Fuel economy highway: Honda Accord Hybrid (4.0 L/100 km) • Back-to-back testing, on the same roads, on the same day, under the same conditions, is a fundamental principal of TestFest, to ensure fair and comparable evaluations. The best vehicle in each of the 12 categories will be announced on December 3 and from that group the overall 2014 Canadian Car of the Year and 2014 Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year will then be picked. Styling, occupant environment, performance, vehicle dynamics, price/ value, market significance, emotional appeal and off-road capability (where applicable) are all incorporated in an exhaustive and detailed voting procedure. Ballots are tabulated by the international accounting firm KPMG and the results are kept confidential until the following awards press conferences.

Green Car Journal has identified its five finalists for the magazine’s highprofile 2014 Green Car of the Year program. The five 2014 models include the Audi A6 TDI, BMW 328d, Honda Accord, Mazda3 and Toyota Corolla. These five finalists are also honoured as Green Car Journal’s “Top 5 Green Cars for 2014” and earn the magazine’s “Green Car Product of Excellence” honours. An increasing number of vehicle models are considered for the program each year, a reflection of the auto industry’s expanding efforts in offering new vehicles with higher efficiency and improved environmental impact. Green Car Journal has been honouring the most important “green” vehicles every year at the LA Auto Show, since its inaugural award announced at the show in 2005. “The diversity of this field of finalists illustrates not only that ‘green’ has gone mainstream, but also that there is no single approach to achieving ever-higher levels of fuel efficiency and environmental performance,” says Ron Cogan, editor and publisher

What women want when car shopping Women are a huge driving force (pardon the pun) in the car-buying world. Studies show that around 60 per cent of new-vehicle purchases are made by women. Further to that, matriarchs heavily influence decisions on car buying within the family, too – perhaps as much as 85 percent of all purchases. While many hubbies would love a hot, little sports car, perhaps it’s not always ideal for, you know, life. Buying a vehicle is considered to be the second-biggest purchase someone can make. The first is your home. So when someone says it’s not that big of a deal,

it kind of is. Not only is it a long-term decision, but a financially significant one as well. It can also bring up many emotions: excitement, stress, anxiety and more. Leading up to the 2013 Vancouver International Auto Show, I had the privilege of assisting six women with their new car purchases. They gave me a budget and a list of “needs and wants” and then we went to the drawing board. The experience opened my eyes to a few things. Though each of the women were looking for something different from one another, there were common threads

Miller, Pearl Thelma Passed away peacefully on October 22, 2013. Pearl was born in Victoria in 1925 to Mary and James Robertson. She grew up amongst love and laughter with her brothers George and Jim Robertson, her sisters Mary Anderson, Grace Cliff, Hilda Roach, Lil Rekis and Thelma Robertson. She worked at the Horseshoe News on Government Street and in 1963 wed Roy Miller of Victoria. They moved to New Westminster and eventually retired to White Rock. The couple had many happy years traveling “across the line” on shopping and gambling trips. Pearl was devastated by the passing of Roy in 2009, but now they are together again. Many thanks to her dear friends Mary, Shirley and Don, and her apartment family whose friendships she cherished. No service by request.

Nov. 29, 1918 - Oct. 23, 2013 It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our mother Helen Ashworth at her home in South Surrey. Awaiting her with open arms are her mother Alice, father Robert, brothers Jim, Jack, Bob, Bill, sister Dolly, husband Harry, daughter Gail, sons-inlaw Brad and Dixon. Survived by her daughters Jane and, Barb, grandchildren Karalee, Kristy, Jordan, Dallas and Shannon and great grandchildren Kolby, Keara, Laytyn, Hayden, Keaton, Scotty, Nolan and Msafiri. Helen was born in Selkirk, Manitoba in “Stuart House”, the family residence. She spent her young adult life in Winnipeg where she was an accomplished speed skater, danced to the big bands, sang great harmony, and met and married beloved husband Harry. After the war years they lived in many locations across Canada finally settling in Victoria. Here Helen volunteered at the Wee Bit Worn Shop and held a secretarial position at the women’s auxillary. Her passions included family, boating, flying, travelling, and family games and gatherings. A devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, her gentle spirit, quiet strength, and grace brought comfort to all who knew her. We will hold her tenderly in our hearts forever. In lieu of flowers a donation to The Down’s Syndrome Foundation would be greatly appreciated. A Graveside Service will be held at Hatley Gardens on Sunday, June 22 at 12:00 p.m.

BOYD, Wade (“Kipp”) It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Kipp on October 27th, peacefully, in his own home. Predeceased by his son, Kevin. Also predeceased by his brother, Don, sister in law, Dorothy and nephew, Shane Gentry. Survived by his loving wife of 44 years, Carol; daughter Kimberley (Mark) Johnstone; son Colin (Amber); grandchildren, Brodie, Mackenzie, Mason, Sophie and Lincoln. Kipp will be lovingly remembered by all who crossed his path. He was a caring and loving husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend. A Visitation and Celebration of Life Gathering will be held on Monday, November 4th between 4:00pm - 8:00pm at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre; 14831 28 Avenue, Surrey, BC. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Kipp’s memory to the Peace Arch Hospital Foundation.

Joe succumbed after a very short battle with cancer and just 6 weeks before his 100th birthday. He was predeceased by his childhood sweetheart, Kathleen, in 2004 and he leaves behind his son, Peter and his daughter-in-law Elaine; two grandsons Cam and his wife Vanessa with their two children Josie and Daylen and his younger grandson Matt. Born in Essex, England his studies to become a chartered accountant were interrupted by WW ll. He enlisted in the Royal Navy and spent all of the war years divided between armed trawlers on the North Atlantic convoys including Iceland and Russia and on mine sweepers who were required on a daily basis to keep the shipping lanes around England free of mines. Shortly after the war and once he had obtained his accountancy designation he signed up for overseas service and moved with his family initially to Dar-es-salaam, Tanganyika and finally Nairobi, Kenya where he was a special advisor to Kenyatta and Mboya prior to the move to independence for Kenya. From there he emigrated to Canada in 1964, joining the Ontario government, retiring as the director of the Gasoline and Tobacco branch of the treasury. In 1987 he and Kathleen moved out west to the Crescent Beach area to enjoy retirement and be close to their family. Joe was a great golfer wherever his travels took him, continuing to play well in to his 90’s and having had the pleasure of shooting his age on quite a few occasions. The family would like to thank Roger Turner and Harmony Health for all the wonderful at home support they provided, and in particular, Thea Wall, that allowed him to stay at home up until the last few hours. Joe was a wonderful friend to many and a caring father, grandfather and great-grandfather. The family has requested a private funeral service for only family members; his ashes will be later buried alongside Kathleen and other close family members in Essex. In lieu of flowers contribute to a charity of your choice. Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre 604-536-6522

Memorial Service will be held Sunday, November 3rd, at 2 pm, in the Activity Center at Breakaway Bays. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to any local animal rescue organization, if desired.

FRANKLIN, Alma Ella, 78, passed away surrounded by her family on Oct. 27, 2013. Alma was born June 13, 1935 to Dorothy and Leonard (Sharp) McGillivray. She spent her early years on a homestead in Dawson Creek, the youngest of three sisters and one brother. She travelled to her one-room schoolhouse by horse and cart in the summer and by horse and sleigh in the winter. Her family moved to White Rock in 1945 and her high school years were filled with circle skirts, saddle shoes, song books and jive dancing. She married John Anthony Franklin (19232013) in 1954 and they raised five children in the White Rock area. Alma loved hiking, gardening, knitting, reading, cross country skiing and spending time with her family and friends. After retiring from her work as a tourism counsellor, she dedicated her life to a variety of volunteer efforts. Most recently she volunteered regularly for the White Rock Hospice Society Thrift Store and Kent Street Centre. Alma is lovingly remembered by her brother, Terry (Babs) McGillivray; daughters, Linda (Bob) Peters and Audrey Lee (Ryan) Braun; sons, David (Kim) Franklin, Peter (Anne) Franklin, Perry (Jennifer) Franklin; and her beautiful grandchildren, Wade, Clayton, Ben, Amy, Braden, Garrett, Katy, Kiera, Nicole, Joshua, Caleb and Dylan. A memorial gathering will be held on Monday, Nov. 4, at the Semiahmoo Fish and Game Club, 1284 184 Street, Surrey, BC, at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Hospice Society of BC.

Province has final say but mayors urged to help TransLink find solution

Referendum question ‘a combined effort’ Jeff Nagel Black Press

While Metro Vancouver mayors say it’s up to the province to decide the wording of its promised referendum question on new TransLink funding, Transportation Minister Todd Stone sees it as more of a combined effort. He spoke last week after mayors’ council vice-chair Wayne Wright said the ball is in the province’s court and mayors are frustrated they still have no idea what Victoria intends. “The ball is in each of our courts,” Stone said in an interview. “At the end of the day, the province will determine the final wording and the timing of the referendum. But I hope to be in a position to do that with the support of the mayors’ council.” Stone said he believes there is still goodwill among most of the mayors to reach an agreement on changes to TransLink governance, proposed new funding sources and a referendum to approve Todd Stone them. transportation He wants that deal hamminister mered out by Christmas. Mayors, who voted in the spring to oppose a referendum many view as unwinnable, have since insisted it’s the province’s problem to figure out since it was an election promise of the premier and neither the mayors’ council nor TransLink has any jurisdiction of its own to lead a referendum. “I certainly intend on stepping forward and leading on this file,” Stone said, but added he didn’t want to get too far ahead of the mayors. “The best scenarios are those where there’s consensus and collaboration.” Stone has met with the mayors’ council as a group just once – he was not present at an Oct. 18 meeting of the council – but he said he is meeting many mayors individually. He also acknowledged that as a new minister from Kamloops who’s been on the job just four months he has “a lot of ground to make up” in understanding TransLink’s challenges and history. Critical to any deal is the demand of mayors that they get more say on the spending priorities of TransLink – currently under the sole control of the unelected board – rather than merely being asked to approve tax hikes. The mayors say they commissioned a review of TransLink governance but the province has done little so far to spell out its proposals. Stone said it’s a key piece of the puzzle. “There can only be enhanced authority

TransLink and Metro Vancouver mayors are currently debating the wording of a referendum question that will be put to residents, with regard to new sources of funding for the transit authority. for the mayors if there’s also accountability attached to that. And the mayors are saying the same thing.” Stone said improvements sought by Metro residents, such as rapid-transit extensions in Surrey or along the Broadway corridor in Vancouver or an improved bus network, will only get done if an agreement is reached on new funding for TransLink. “We owe it to the people of Metro to provide some certainty on the timing of the referendum and the details related to the referendum as well as what the overall vision is for the future of transit and transportation

in the Lower Mainland.” The referendum is supposed to be no later than the November 2014 municipal elections, but Stone and some mayors say a spring date is better to keep TransLink issues from hijacking the civic races. It’s been more than three years and two transportation ministers ago that then-premier Gordon Campbell and then-transportation minister Shirley Bond reached a 2010 accord with Metro mayors to pursue new TransLink funding sources for expansion. Mayors since proposed options like a vehicle levy, a share of carbon tax or a small

regional sales tax – ahead of a longer-term move to road pricing. But Premier Christy Clark first subjected TransLink to an efficiency audit and then promised the referendum on new sources, without indicating which ones the province might support. “It’s frustrating for all of us,” Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan said. “The problem has consistently been that the provincial government is ragging the puck. They ragged the puck prior to the election and now it appears they’re ragging the puck going into the referendum.”

The Babine mill in Burns Lake is being rebuilt after fire destroyed it and killed two workers Jan. 20, 2012.

Hundreds of workers in Quesnel, Houston to feel impact of shutdown

Two B.C. sawmills closing Tom Fletcher Black Press

Babine Forest Products in Burns Lake, said he expected the decision to reduce mill capacity in the Quesnel region. “The surprise is the closure of the Houston mill, from my perspective,” Rustad said. “I think West Fraser has always been looking at how they want to move the wood between the three mills, but when we looked at the opportunities in the Houston area on the timber supply component, there was a significant amount of wood in that area, and our hope was it

would continue to support two mills.” Rustad said the decision last December to provide timber for Oregon-based Hampton Affiliates to rebuild its Burns Lake sawmill “had only very minimal impact” on supply for the other mills in the region. Forests Minister Steve Thomson was scheduled to return Friday from a lumber trade mission in Japan and China, along with industry executives from across the province.

Sawmills in Quesnel and Houston are to be closed next year as their owners trade timber-cutting rights to maintain competing operations in the two B.C. Interior communities affected by mountain pine beetle infestation. Canfor Corp. announced it will close its Quesnel mill in March 2014, transferring its forest licence for the region to West Fraser to supply logs to its recently rebuilt Quesnel mill. West Fraser announced it will close its Houston mill next year, trading part of its cutting rights to Canfor to supply its Houston operation.

Failed cadmium tests driving up region’s garbage costs

Metro to pay $3m more for incinerator-ash disposal Jeff Nagel Black Press

Metro Vancouver is searching for a cheaper place to dump fly ash from its Burnaby garbage incinerator instead of the current method of trucking it almost 900 kilometres to a landfill near Hinton, Alberta. The fly ash – taken from scrubbers in the plant’s stack – used to go to the Cache Creek Regional Landfill, but the regional district has been unable to dump it there since tests in September 2012 revealed higher-thanacceptable levels of leachable cadmium in some loads. The regional district estimates it will pay $3 million more in 2014 for ash-management costs as a result of the higher cost of trucking and landfilling the fly

ash, as well as increased costs of landfilling bottom ash, which also began failing tests recently. “It’s definitely substantial,” Metro solid waste general manager Paul Henderson said last week. “The costs of fly ash management are more than double what they previously were.” Metro is seeking bids from other landfills to take the fly ash for at least three years and expects to award a longterm contract by the end of the year. Henderson said that should reduce the costs somewhat compared to the more expensive month-to-month disposal arrangement at Hinton. Asked why Metro doesn’t dump the fly ash at the Vancouver Landfill in Delta, Henderson said there’s

no regulatory reason not to do so but Metro’s practice has been to use an industrial landfill specifically authorized to take incinerator ash. He said Metro has concluded after continuous testing over the past year since the earlier test failures that fly ash from the incinerator is within regulatory levels. An independent consultant is reviewing all the findings and has yet to make recommendations on what to do with the fly ash that failed tests and is still at the Cache Creek landfill. Metro Vancouver has also been forced to significantly increase testing of the incinerator’s bottom ash after tests in April showed it also had high levels of cadmium. In the past that

bottom ash – 50,000 tonnes per year – had been used mainly as a road construction additive. It’s now mostly being landfilled at the Vancouver Landfill, although a few loads found to have more than twice the regulatory limit for

cadmium have been separately stockpiled for closer analysis. Metro officials believe batteries, particularly rechargeables that power electronic devices, are the main source of rising levels of cadmium in the region’s waste stream.

three years before the next scheduled B.C. election, to avoid municipal elections set for next fall and a federal election expected in 2015. Dix announced in September he would stay on as leader until a successor is chosen, and at the time he said that

Faith

Adrian Dix NDP Leader

would take place before the middle of next year. The May vote was picked after discussions with the party’s current MLAs and local constituency presidents, but it still must be approved by the NDP provincial council. No candidate has formally announced,

but several are considering a run. They include Port Coquitlam MLA Mike Farnworth, who finished second to Dix in 2011, and caucus newcomers Judy Darcy, George Heyman and David Eby, all of whom represent Vancouver constituencies.

Tung Sheng Wu faces jail time if caught

Dentist sentenced in absentia Jeff Nagel Black Press

A rogue Metro Vancouver dentist still wanted on a Canada-wide warrant was sentenced in absentia earlier this month to three months in jail for contempt of court. Tung Sheng (David) Wu has been on the lam since his makeshift illegal dental office in a Burnaby house was raided in April after a tip from the public sparked an investigation. Wu had been working without adequate infection-conTung Sheng Wu trol systems â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in contradentist vention of an earlier ban on practising dentistry dating back to 2003 â&#x20AC;&#x201C;  prompting a public health alert and warnings to more than 450 patients to get tested for blood-borne diseases. According to the College of Dental Surgeons of B.C., Wu responded to the prosecution by

CEO Jerome Marburg says Tung Sheng Wu is in hiding. filling a vehicle with dental equipment in August in an attempt to relocate and set up shop in a new jurisdiction. College CEO Jerome Marburg said in a statement that Wu has gone into hiding and taken active steps to avoid justice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is a person without honour or regard for Canadian civil society,â&#x20AC;? the statement said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He has preyed on the vulnerable and put many personsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; health at significant risk.â&#x20AC;?

On Oct. 15, a B.C. Supreme Court judge also awarded the college special costs that could exceed $140,000. Marburg said the three-month sentence reflects the seriousness of the case and underscores that the illegal practice of unsanctioned dentistry will not be tolerated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are starting to hear about clients of Mr. Wuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s who have orthodontics and need treatment. We strongly encourage them to see a qualified, registered dentist to have those orthodontics assessed, adjusted or taken out.â&#x20AC;?

An online registry to check any dentistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s status is on the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website at cdsbc.org. Wu was never registered with the college or qualified to practise in B.C. and is not to be confused with two other Metro Vancouver dentists with similar names.

Forests minister, executives make trade mission to China

B.C. to diversify wood exports

SAFER,

The MICHELIN® X-ICE® Xi3™ tire stops up to 10% shorter on ice and lasts up to two times longer than leading competitors.1, 2

WINTER AFTER WINTER

Tom Fletcher Black Press

B.C.’s annual forest products trade mission to Asia is finding slower growth in the Chinese market, but increasing use of higher-value products such as oriented strandboard. Forests Minister Steve Thomson and 25 B.C. forest products executives visited Shanghai and Beijing last week, after a stop in Japan to meet with government and industry officials. Thomson signed a letter of intent with China’s Zhejiang province to develop wood frame building, in a rapidly urbanizing country that has traditionally used concrete. In a phone interview from Shanghai, Thomson said that while economic growth in China has slowed, it is still far ahead of North American rates, and Zhejiang province expects a 12.5 per cent increase in wood construction in the coming year. China still imports mostly lower-grade B.C. lumber to use for concrete forms and interior walls of its sprawling urban apartment blocks, but new construction techniques are catching on. The group toured a resort project using foam-insulated panels made from oriented strandboard and lumber supplied by B.C. producers Ainsworth Lumber, Tolko Industries and Weyerhaueser. “That’s a building system that

was pioneered in Canada,” said Rick Jeffery, CEO of the Coast Forest Products Association. “Not only were they using our technology, they were using our OSB and our dimension lumber.” Jeffery said Chinese builders and furniture manufacturers are also using more coastal products, including red cedar and highergrade hemlock. In Japan, Thomson spoke to an industry conference to assure delegates that B.C.’s pine beetle epidemic has not led to a shortage of high-grade lumber that has been long favoured by Japanese buyers. Japan has adopted a “wood first” construction policy similar to B.C.’s, which has led to increased wood construction in a country

still recovering from the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in the Fukushima region. Thomson said Japan has 420,000 seniors waiting for spaces in elder care facilities, and wood construction is being offered as a faster and greener way to meet that demand. He expects B.C. export sales to Japan this year to match or exceed the $700 million total for 2012, and also an increase in the $1.1 billion total sales to China recorded last year. In Japan, the B.C. delegation visited a public market and library built near the Fukushima earthquake zone, and signed an agreement for a third facility for people left disabled by the disaster.
