Squatters, fire among concerns at South Surrey property

City demolishes house after complaints Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Demolition crew works last week.

A South Surrey property that neighbours say has attracted squatters, disturbances and mess for years is finally being cleared. Surrey’s manager of bylaws and licensing Jas Rehal told Peace Arch News unsightliness of the lot – in the 3800-block of 152 Street – “led to some nuisance activity,” which

prompted the city to take action. “We worked with the owners to have the house demolished,” he said. As of this week, the house and all outbuildings had been torn down, and crews were on site clearing the remaining debris. “I’m thrilled,” said one neighbour, who said she has been complaining to police and the city about the property for years.

The woman – who asked to not be identified – said the site has been “just an absolute disaster” for far too long. Things became increasingly bad after the electricity and running water were cut off about two years ago, she said. But while the neighbour said the property has been a source of constant grief for the area, police say their presence at the site has been

for “uneventful situations.” Cpl. Bert Paquet told PAN last month that police had not been called to the “familiar” property since an early morning fire Nov. 9 that destroyed a barn there. The blaze – which fire crews had to fight by shuttling water in by tanker – was not deemed suspicious. i see page 10

The South Fraser Perimeter Road is now fully open, providing a major new route that improves traffic flow for truckers and other motorists South of the Fraser. The new four-lane Highway 17 (the former Highway 17 to Tsawwassen is renamed Highway 17A) connects Deltaport to High-

way 1 at 176 Street, with links to all five major crossings of the Fraser River from the Massey Tunnel to the Golden Ears Bridge. “This new route is a game-changer for industry, commuters and tourists,” Transportation Minister Todd Stone said at the Dec. 21 official opening. “It will cut commute times for families and make B.C. more competitive by connecting

Elmbridge in the north of the county, has gained everincreasing renown as a millionaire’s playground – to the growing irritation of some of its residents. Factors responsible for this view include the arrival of celebrities in greater numbers than ever before and the publicity that goes with them trying to outdo each other with multi-million-pound mansions. The Premier League soccer team opened its training ground in Elmbridge in 2005, and as players moved into the area, some brought celebrity wives and tabloid stories of over-indulgence – all adding to people’s conceptions. The growing obsession of newspapers and society pages to publish lists with wealth indicators – such as house prices, quality of life and average earnings – all put Surrey boroughs and districts near the top. Previously it had been largely the London borough of Chelsea that was Guy Martin known as a home for the outrageously reporter wealthy to sip champagne, drive their oversized cars (nicknamed Chelsea tractors) or visit designer boutiques carrying a perfectly groomed lap dog. This was shown by a popular reality TV show, entitled Made in Chelsea, about young socialites doing just that. And Surrey’s emerging reputation as a leafy version of Chelsea has been all-but-guaranteed by the making of a new show this year – once again following the lives of the privileged and privately educated. The makers of the Surrey Hills show have had to defend themselves against allegations they are not giving a fair representation to the area beyond the gated communities and exclusive estates where such people live.

They include providing adequate services, such as schools, hospitals, and transportation, to match the burgeoning population.

Postal protest is past due

R

esidents across the country have been exercised recently by the fact that Canada Post intends to phase out door-to-door delivery of mail to urban addresses in favour of mailboxes – already a fact of life for many, particularly those who live in apartment and townhouse complexes. Unfortunately for all those of us who would prefer time to stand still on such issues, the writing has been on the wall – if not on our personalized stationery – for years. The fact is, the convenience and prevalence of email (including ebills, ebanking and ecommerce) effectively spelled the end of “snail mail” – as the major mode of communication – many years ago. No, it’s not gone entirely, and it likely never will be. There will still be those who prefer hard-copy mail, both for esthetic and, for some transactions, practical reasons. And it seems that new media never completely edge out old formats – which sometimes survive (like the vinyl record) to become trendy again. And handling of parcels, of course, is still going to be a stock-in-trade for Canada Post, until someone figures out a safe and reliable way of teleporting goods. But it can’t come as a surprise that the loss of significant mail volumes to digital communication would have an inevitable impact on Canada Post’s bottom line. Though we may argue about the corporation’s management decisions and strategies – and the stance of the federal government in negotiations – that bottom line is also our bottom line, as taxpayers. Present-day critics may wish to ponder that the time to protest the shift toward mail boxes – and raise quite legitimate concerns about their security, and inaccessibility for those facing physical challenges – was years ago, when they became the norm for rural and suburban routes. It’s sad that those unaffected at that time could not envision that someone else’s problem would eventually become their own – but how many times has that happened in human history? Like it or not, that battle has been lost, as have the working positions Canada Post means to eliminate through attrition. If there was a time to save or transition those jobs, the strategies also needed to be launched by union leaders long ago. If we feel there is something that still needs to be protested, try the new $1 individual stamp (85 cents if bought in a pack) that Canada Post will introduce come March 31. That’s a new wrinkle – and one we could legitimately contest, as a hardship to the country’s already besieged and inconvenienced taxpayers.

a drink, do you really want a pint-sized patron guzzling juice from a sippy cup at the next table? That’s assuming the little beggars are even sitting down. There’s nothing more disruptive than a bored kid – and, let’s face it, few places are going to be as boring to a kid as a pub. But for those of us who have left our clubbing years well behind us, the local pub has become the centre of our social life. It’s really the only place we can gather in the exclusive company of adults, regardless of the time of day. And, really, why would parents want this change? Is it worth saving a few bucks on a babysitter to spend an hour or two drinking before strapping the kids into the back seat for the drive home? Yes, children need to learn how to behave properly in public. But there are plenty of family-friendly establishments where they can be schooled in the social niceties. When I’m craving a White Spot burger, it’s pretty well guaranteed that some little person will be tearing wildly into a Pirate Pack nearby. And I’m perfectly OK with that. I’m on their turf, after all. But when it comes to my weekend outings to the local pub, I’d prefer those to remain like the rest of my life – blissfully child-free.

City steps up for community

Police costs need look

Editor: DiverseCity is an organization that promotes the independence of new Canadians and, through our service programs, helps to foster diverse communities. Recently, we found ourselves in a situation where we needed some grace from the City of Surrey in order to save our agency time and money. We needed assistance, and I was amazed at the help and kind response I received from everyone in every department. Their response to my crisis during their busy pre-Christmas rush was exemplary. It is rare to get that level of customer service anywhere – never mind from government. I think government employees get a bad rap, and at the City of Surrey they truly deserve praise. Everyone stepped up to help us. They were knowledgeable, quick to respond, quick to help and everyone went above and beyond their scope of duty to assist us. I would like to thank Coun. Marvin Hunt for his support and guidance in telling us where to go for answers and following us through the process to make sure we were taken care of. I would like to thank Jean Lamontagne of the planning and development department for his quick response to our predicament. I would like to thank Chelsea Eagles and Tony Capuccinello in the city’s legal department for going above and beyond to assist us. City of Surrey, you truly do have the attitude “how can it be done?” instead of “no, we can’t do that.” As an organization that uses taxpayers’ dollars to fund our work, we are so grateful to the city for its support in saving us money and time. This is what taxpayers need to see – a proper use of their dollars and a bureaucracy that moves mountains to protect the public purse. Thank you, City of Surrey – your staff are amazing and I am so proud to be a part of this community. Shara Nixon, DiverseCity

Editor: Re: IHIT costs add up for White Rock, Dec. 5. Coun. Alan Campbell is correct in that the freight for selecting the RCMP to police the City of White Rock was a terrible mistake. It is not the quality of policing that we receive in our city but the associated costs, such as funding E-Comm. One only has to look south to Blaine, Wash. and see that their police service is stellar and costs much lower. Mind you, they do run a tighter ship in that pursuit rules are such that members are not charged with criminal matters related to high-speed pursuits and the fatalities of pedestrians. The enforcement of speeding in our community is also an issue, with enforcement being slim to none historically. One would think that with Surrey doing the answering of 911 calls

Not time, place for bad news Editor: The Peace Arch News Dec. 24 edition is appalling for its frontpage stories and the headline in particular (Ex-teacher admits to child porn again, Dec. 24) Why is the sweet Christmas story inside on page 3 (Sweet inspection for Surrey students)? It kind of makes the editorial wishes on page 7 rather hollow (Maybe we need a little Christmas), don’t you think? You sure shot Christmas for me, through and through. Compare yourselves to The Now Dec. 24 issue, and you’ll see what a Christmas edition can achieve. Shame on you… Judy Kern, Surrey

and issuing complaint file numbers, our costs would be much less. This is not the case, it would seem. The re-signing of the RCMP was a bad idea as to costs and not the quality of policing they provide. Ron Eves, White Rock

A tragic loss for everyone Editor: Re: Surrey teen dies after SkyTrain assault, Dec. 26. With the sad and sudden demise of Karim Meskine, society lost one of its innocent youth. The incident is deplorable. In the prime of life, a teen has met a tragic death, leaving everyone behind remorseful. We extend our profound grief and sincere sympathy to his bereaved families and friends. We need to save our teens from premature death. Priority should be given to provide utmost safety to our kids and encourage them for the best desirable career

development. We convey our deepest console to Karim’s family. May Almighty’s infinite grace be with you. Hanif A. Patel, Surrey

Shortsighted civic vision Editor: I am very concerned about the future of the Christian Science Church that sits beside the city hall. White Rock now owns that property. Bylaw 2044 is up for a vote on Jan. 13. This will decide the status of the property. It is public property now and can be used by the community for seniors, daycares for children, parks… It is for the citizens of White Rock. If Bylaw 2044 is passed, it would change the public part forever. It would pass to private enterprise. I think this idea is shortsighted, mistaken and dangerous. Mary MacDonald, White Rock

Letter writers call for government accountability over the one-year-old Port Mann Bridge in North Surrey.

Frustration builds for bridge users Editor: The justification for the toll and upcoming increased toll on the Port Mann Bridge just doesn’t cut it for those of us who live and work in Surrey. The only time I ever use the bridge is in the evening – usually to visit friends in the Tri-Cities area. I get onto Highway 1 at 152 Street and exit to Lougheed Highway at the other end of the bridge – $3 for three minutes of driving is ridiculous. There has been no time-savings for me, as there never was a congestion problem in the evening even on the old bridge. I can see the rationale for a toll on rush-hour commuters – particularly those from outside the Metro Vancouver gas-tax zone. I’ve paid on average $30/month over the last year – $360 for the year, soon to be $720 for next year – and am not receiving any benefit due to the new bridge. David Zindler, Surrey Q Local and provincial leaders should be ashamed that one year after the new Port Mann Bridge opened,

Surrey residents don’t have access to any type of public transportation to cross it. If they want to cross it they have to drive to Langley from where they can take a bus. This is pure discrimination against Surrey. This is an outrage and the people in charge at TransLink, City of Surrey and Ministry of Transportation who mismanaged this should be fired for gross incompetence. I am calling on all levels of government to cut the excuses, roll up their sleeves and get working on this. Waiting years for critical improvements is not the way to do business in B.C. Public transit helps the people most in need like students and the elderly who cannot afford a car or the exorbitant toll crossing. I challenge the powers that be to answer me and the people of Surrey what exactly is being done to get a bus from Surrey over the Port Mann. Enough is enough. The citizens of Surrey demand more accountability from their government. Daniel Badragan, Surrey

Neighbours allege tree was poisoned

City awaits test results City of White Rock officials say they still don’t know if a tree that neighbours allege was poisoned in November was indeed tampered with. Just before the winter holidays, city manager Dan Bottrill said by email that he is “still waiting for results.” They were initially expected by Dec. 13. The city was alerted to the possible poisoning Nov. 26, by neighbours of a controversial Bishop Road development who claimed to have witnessed a deliberate effort to contaminate a 50-foot-tall tree. Geoff Parkin told Peace Arch News at the time that video of the incident shows a man climbing the tree, drill-

ing holes into its trunk and pouring liquid from a jerry can into the holes. The city’s arbourist “confirmed to me that there were drill holes and they could smell chemicals,” Parkin said. There have been three tree-poisoning incidents in White Rock in the past three or four years. Bottrill told PAN earlier this month that while poisoning had not been confirmed, suspicion of the act was “sufficient enough that we haven’t been able to conclude our investigation.” The city’s next steps depend on the test results. - Tracy Holmes

BC Hydro’s imposition of manual meter reading fees has persuaded most holdouts to accept a wireless smart meter. BC Hydro imposed a $35 monthly fee starting last month for customers who refuse to part with their mechanical electricity meters, after offering the 68,000 customers who still had them the option of accepting the new meter with the radio transmission function on or off. BC Hydro reported the results last

month to the B.C. Utilities Commission (BCUC), which is reviewing the fees. More than 48,000 customers chose the smart meter to avoid the meter-reading fee. Another 450 chose the radio-off meter, which comes with a $100 setup fee and $20 a month starting April 1 to cover costs of collecting readings. Another 6,270 customers chose to keep their mechanical meters, and 13,110 more did not respond to BC Hydro’s letters, so they will have the $35 fee added to their bills until they choose another option.

Originally estimated at $800 million, the project cost soared to $1.26 billion as a result of land acquisition and environmental mitigation. It was to be complete in 2012, but only partially opened that year, mainly to provide a free route to the Pattullo Bridge for drivers seeking to avoid the Port Mann Bridge toll.

n almost complete silence, a dozen folks standing in three neat rows on the polished wooden floor of Kennedy Hall flow together through a series of movements. Slowly, they raise and lower their arms, bend their knees, twist their feet and change direction in unison. The set of movements takes about 10 minutes to complete. There are 108 steps in the series… Carry Tiger to Mountain… Ward Off Monkey… Fair Lady Works Shuttles, Step Up to Grab Bird’s Tail… The final step is called Closing of Tai Chi.

The motions are “very internal,” explained the veterinary assistant. “The slow motion makes for a soft glide through the moves.” Shirley Hutchinson transitioned to tai chi from yoga about three years ago when she developed arthritis in her wrists. “It’s very gentle and is something I can do into old age.” Hutchinson says that although some of the moves might give her trouble sometimes, it works best if she just relaxes her mind and goes with the flow.

“It’s all good if I don’t think about it. It works out.” Kathy Hack, a four-year veteran who has benefitted physically and socially from the weekly sessions, says tai chi also helps with memory. Learning the set, she says, “is another form of exercise… learning something new.” The local chapter of Fung Loy Kok Taoist Tai Chi holds regular classes at Kennedy Hall, Ocean Park Hall, Elgin Hall, Murrayville Community Hall and Douglas Recreation Centre, and makes periodic visits to other locations.

University hosts speed-dating-style event for local organizations

Non-profits mingle at Kwantlen Kwantlen Polytechnic University is playing matchmaker for non-profit organizations. The Surrey campus held a speed-dating-style event which matched up non-profits from the city with faculty members for an initial meet and greet, followed by more private, one-on-one three-minute conversations. During the three-minute meetings faculty and non-profits shared key points about what each has done and shared goals of finding common ground in which they may be able to meet each other’s needs, a news release from the university said. The concept is the brain child Larissa Petrillo, anthropology professor and interim director of KPUs Centre for Interdisciplinary Research: Community Learning Engagement. She states in the release that the speed-date method is the most efficient use of time for busy

South Surrey student donates her long locks

Hair today, gone tomorrow Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

It’s safe to say that efforts of a 12-year-old South Surrey girl to help fight cancer are a cut above. The gift Jenna Samson gave – of her own hair – was on her mind for two years, but much longer in the making. “I’ve been growing my hair since I was a little girl and I never really cut it, like, short,” Jenna told Peace Arch News. The idea to make the cut worthwhile – the hair will be used in a wig for a cancer patient – arose while talking to her mom about a fellow Bayridge Elementary student who was fighting cancer. “(The girl, in Grade 6) just came to school and you kind of can tell that she has cancer,” Jenna said. “So I was talking to my mom and she said, ‘Oh, why don’t you

Jenna had the cut done at Chatters in Grandview Corners last month, and the resulting ponytails were sent to the Canadian Cancer Society. Her mom, Helen, attributes Jenna’s giving spirit to her years in the Girl Guides program. “Guiding teaches the girls to think of others, to be giving, and ‘to take action for a better world,’” said Helen, who is involved in public relations for the Peninsula District Guides. Jenna agreed her involvement in Girl Guides played a role in the decision. She has been in the program for six years, and is currently a Pathfinder. “Girl Guides (is) really trying to convince you to do nice things and think of other people before you,” she said. “So it’s a nice thing to do and that’s putting people before me.”

Local authors Helping women ‘find their mojo’ to be featured Local workshop encourages others to embrace passions

Alex Browne

Arts Reporter

iolette Clark has a sure way of evaluating a course or workshop. “She says ‘where are my ‘gifties?’ – that’s what she calls them, ‘gifties’,” said longtime friend and collaborator Susan Keeping. Something you get to take away and keep – some novelty or road-map or workbook that provides a recall cue to the insights received – is always vital, Clark believes. “Where’s my template, where’s my workbook for what’s next?” she said. Rest assured there will be plenty of ‘gifties’ for participants in Clark and Keeping’s upcoming one-day Embrace Your Passion 2014 workshop for women, Saturday, Jan. 25, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., at Ocean Park Community Hall, 1577 128 St. It’s aimed as a recipe to “get your mojo going in 2014” for all women, but particularly for women who may be ‘Boomers’ or reaching mid-life and are in the process of recreating themselves. “Both Susan and I are transitioning in our lives,” Clark said, noting that they have known each other more than 20 years, since the days when they co-founded the anti-poverty Newton Advocacy Group Society. Both have since become well known both locally and further afield – Clark through her distinctive art and lettering style and her journaling workshops, and Keeping as a community advocate who has stood as both a federal and provincial NDP candidate. It was 11 years ago that they presented their first successful

What better way to inaugurate Alexandra Neighbourhood House’s new reading room than by celebrating local literary talent? Lit Café, a series of readings of poetry and prose by Semiahmoo Peninsula writers, will take place Wednesday, Jan. 15, 7-9 p.m. in the reading room at 2916 McBride Ave. in Crescent Beach. Featured authors will be novelists Margo Bates, Ben Nutall-Smith, Lois Peterson, Sylvia Taylor and Cristy Watson, but there will also be an open-mic portion of the program for any who might want to share their own works. “Suggested donation for admission is $5, but none will be turned away for lack of funds,” said Neil Fernyhough, Alex House’s co-ordinator of community programs. “In addition to the readings, the evening includes opportunities for questions and answers,” he said, adding that there will also be an opportunity to buy books Lois Peterson by the featured authors. Bates, author of the memoir P.S. Don’t Tell Your Mother and A Queen of the Gated Community, is currently at work on The Funeral Follower. A public speaker, publicist and photographer, she likes to use humour to bring life Ben Nuttall-Smith to historical fiction and teaches workshops for authors on writing fiction, non-fiction and humour. She is currently president of Canadian Authors Vancouver and serves as its program and publicity committee chair and national marketing and communications committee chair of the Canadian Authors Association. Nuttall-Smith, a retired music, art, theatre and language teacher, is author of the › see page 21

Susan Keeping and Violette Clark have reunited to create a new Embrace Your Passion workshop. Embrace Your Passion workshop, but they see the need for it as even greater now, both personally and for the women they want to help. “We have aged and matured and are coming from a different place now,” Clark said. “We hear our contemporaries lamenting that they want something in their life – but they don’t know what. They want to embrace their passion, but they don’t know where to start.” More than part of a New Year’s resolution, the new Embrace Your Passion workshop is intended as a gift for women who may spend so much time caring for others or working full-time that the idea

of spending a day finding and following their “bliss” is a rare luxury indeed. The agenda for the day, which includes a light lunch and coffee or tea, is simple – and it’s all about the participant for a change. Each woman will create a journal (workbook included) to provide a road map for her personal passions; indulge the opportunity to explore herself by creating with felt pens and pencil crayons (and nobody has to be an ‘artist’ to participate); learn how to add colour to life, literally and figuratively, through ‘mind-mapping’ and ‘dream-boarding;’ and, above all, focus on having fun.

Clark and Keeping said, adding that no experience is necessary – just a willingness to play. “All you have to do is bring a desire to find your own passion,” Clark said. “How wonderful is that?” Clark said she recently had to go through the process herself, discovering that she needed to transition out of simply teaching art techniques and into inspiring others to discover their potential. “I was starting to lose my passion, but I realized that I love teaching and inspiring people – I’ve done it all through my life and it comes naturally to me,” she said. “People need to ask › see page 20

Workshop offers ‘nurturing for your soul’ › from page 19 themselves ‘what’s the core element in my life – what do I love to do?” Life is all about evolving and adapting to change, particularly as we grow older, Keeping said, noting she has just become a grandmother, but at the same time has

moved her own mother into the family home to facilitate caregiving. A workshop of this kind can help build resilience, take perceived negatives and make positives out of them through the kind of creative play Clark is skilled at facilitating, Keeping added.

Canadians open with win at World Juniors

Petan stars for Canada Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Nic Petan and his Canadian teammates are off to a so-so start at the IIHF World Junior Hockey Championships in Sweden. The U20 tournament – which has become a holiday tradition for Canadian hockey fans – began Boxing Day in Malmo, Sweden, with Canada thumping Germany 7-2 in the roundrobin opener. The team Nic Petan faltered in their Team Canada second matchup Saturday morning, however, losing 5-4 in a shootout to the Czech Republic. The win over Germany was highlighted by a hat-trick from Quebec’s Anthony Mantha, but Petan, too, got into the action in the third period. He scored his team’s seventh and final goal, tapping the puck into the Germany net after a wrap-around attempt by teammate Connor McDavid. Petan also had three shots on goal in the win. Petan, who has been playing on a forward line with Kerby Rychel and fellow Western Hockey League Curtiz Lazar, was held off the scoresheet against the Czechs, though he was one of Canada’s better forwards. He was also one of three Canadian players to take part in the shootout, though he did not score on Czech goalie Marek Langhamer. In their third game Monday morning, Canada faced Slovakia, but results were not available by Peace Arch News’ press deadlines. Petan, a 19-year-old North Delta i see page 28

Laurent Brossoit registers three straight goal-less games

Cloverdale netminder ties ECHL shutout record Rick Kupchuk Black Press

Laurent Brossoit goaltender

It took Laurent Brossoit just three starts to tie an East Coast Hockey League (ECHL) record. The netminder from Cloverdale earned his third consecutive shutout Dec. 18, making 28 saves to backstop the Bakersfield Condors to a 4-0 win over the Idaho Steelheads in front of 3,090 fans in Boise, Idaho.

After two shutouts in a pair of previous starts with the Alaska Aces in October, the 20-year-old has tied the ECHL record with three straight shutouts, a standard shared with six other netminders. His league-record tying streak came to an end Friday, when he gave up two goals in a 3-1 loss to the Idaho Steelheads Saturday night. His shutout streak ended at 211:17,

just over 25 minutes shy of the ECHL record of 236:03. Brossoit was assigned to the Condors earlier in the day by the NHL’s Edmonton Oilers, after playing seven games with the Oklahoma City Oil Barons, where he posted a 3.53 goals against average in seven games played. Brossoit was drafted by the Calgary Flames in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, and after two games with the

Abbotsford Heat of the American Hockey League, he was sent to the Alaska Aces of the ECHL. He played the final six minutes in his ECHL debut, and did not give up a goal. In his two starts with the Aces, he posted a pair of shutout wins before his NHL rights were traded to the Oilers in early November. Coincidentally, both shutouts with Alaska were against Bakersfield.

Peninsula players dot Great Northwest Showcase rosters

Former Eagles to face each other

Interested in contact lenses for your tropical vacation?

Nick Greenizan Sports Reporer

The next few days is shaping up to be a reunion of sorts for a handful of Surrey Eagles alumni. Beginning tomorrow (Jan. 3), a number of former Eagles – as well as other players with Surrey and White Rock ties – will be hitting the ice for the Great Northwest Showcase, which consists of a handful of exhibition hockey games involving the UBC Thunderbirds, Simon Fraser University Clan, and a pair of NCAA teams, the Princeton Tigers and University of North Dakota. All four clubs feature players familiar to Surrey hockey fans. North Dakota is led by Adam Tambellini, who helped the Eagles to a BCHL and Western Canada title last season en route to an appearance in the RBC Cup, while Princeton’s roster features Marlon Sabo, a Semiahmoo Minor Hockey product who spent most of his BCHL career with the Alberni Valley Bulldogs, but was also briefly an affiliate player with the Eagles. The UBC roster features four players with Surrey connections, including three defencemen who once wore

Lacrosse season begins Jan. 11

Stealth set to launch Gary Ahuja Black Press

Fraser Valley lacrosse fans will have more than enough to cheer about this month, as the Vancouver Stealth get set to launch their first season in Langley. The Stealth – who’ve appeared in three of the past four National Lacrosse League finals – are playing their first season out of the Langley Events Centre after relocating from Everett, Wash. They’ll play their home opener Jan. 11 against Minnesota. Despite the move, head coach Chris Hall expects his team to be among the con-

tenders again this season. With just four new faces in the lineup – draft picks Cody Bremner and Tyler Digby, as well as free-agent signee Sean Lundstrom – the team returns about 75 per cent of the roster that came within goal of forcing overtime in the Champions Cup final last year against the Rochester Knighthawks. “Each season is different and it is obviously a tough league,” said Hall. “Nine teams start the season with a vision of winning the Champion’s Cup and we are obviously no different than that.” The four new forwards

will add to an already potent offence which returns a number of big offensive weapons, including last year’s leading scorer Rhys Duch, who had 45 goals last season. “I think we do have what it takes (to win),” Hall said. “I think the biggest challenge at the beginning of the season is preparing your team so it is a cohesive unit and game-ready. “We have to build chemistry and we need to get off to a good start, stay injury-free and hope luck comes your way a little bit.” For more on the Stealth, visit www.stealthlax.com

In August, he was among 33 players invited to Hockey Canada’s summer camp for prospective worldjunior players, and in early

December was one of 25 players to try out for the team; 22 made the cut. The Canadian squad has been in Europe since before Christmas, and played a few pre-tournament exhibition contests prior to their Dec. 26 opener. In the final tune-up game – a 4-1 win over Switzerland on Dec. 23 – Petan was named player of the game.
