Suspect released without charges last fall after woman’s body found near river in 2012, police confirm

‘Someone did something terribly wrong’ Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Police investigating the July 2012 death of a young mother whose body was found near the banks of the Nicomekl River say they still believe someone has answers that could bring Ashley Lynn Chauvin’s family some peace. After learning in recent weeks that police had arrested a Surrey man last fall in connection with the discovery of the 20-year-

old’s body, Chauvin’s mother added her voice to the appeal. “It’s hard to move on forward when you still have some unanswered questions,” Carmen Perron told Peace Arch News from her home in Ontario. “Somebody’s got to know something.” Chauvin’s body was found in the 15500block of 40 Avenue on July 19, 2012. In the months following the discovery, police ruled

out foul play in her death, but shared little information regarding their investigation – including that they had identified a person of interest “within the first weeks.” Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said Wednesday there are other details that still cannot be disclosed, because the file remains open. He did confirm that an arrest in the case was made last October, and that police had

recommended an individual be criminally charged with “indignity to dead body” in connection with how Chauvin got to the South Surrey riverside. It’s believed she was moved there after she died. “Our major-crime section… knew that at some point, someone did something terribly wrong, and they wanted to hold that person accountable,” Paquet told PAN. i see page 4

Jordan Bateman and his ‘chauffeur’ deliver a golden-pig award to South Surrey’s new TransLink parking lot, which charges would-be users $2.

TransLink refutes federation’s ‘facts,’ saying the province funded lot

Tax critics snort at barren park-and-ride Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

The new South Surrey Park-and-Ride lot has earned TransLink a ‘sow-er’ award from the Canadian Taxpayers Federation. Wednesday, the organization’s B.C. director announced a Teddy Waste Award for the transit authority in ‘celebration’ of the little-used $4.5 million lot off King George Boulevard. “The problem wasn’t giving them the award,” Jordan Bateman said prior to hamming it up at a news conference. “The problem was narrowing it down to the worst offence.” The golden, pig-shaped trophy – presented

to mark “the best of the worst in government waste” – is TransLink’s first Teddy win in the award’s 16-year history. Bateman said the 367-stall expansion to the South Surrey park-and-ride helped TransLink break through “the Teddy stratosphere.” But TransLink officials say the CTF has its facts “absolutely incorrect” with regard to TransLink’s role in the lot’s development. The province funded the capital costs and contributed to the land purchase, a Feb. 26 email from TransLink’s Jiana Ling to the organization states. “In the future, please check your facts with us to ensure accuracy,” Ling writes.

Best Location, Best Value in White Rock!

The expansion was built to address chronic overcrowding at the park-and-ride, and opened shortly after a $2-per-day parking fee was implemented. It has remained virtually empty ever since – but not problem-free. On three occasions in December, thieves ripped out the lot’s pay station, prompting operators to beef up security. And last month, neighbours complained their streets were being clogged by motorists shunning the daily fee. Setting the stage for this week’s ceremony, Bateman said CTF “spared no expense” for the occasion. It featured $2 sparklers, confetti and a one-car parade.

Ed McKitka, one of Surrey’s most colourful mayors, has died. McKitka, 75, was driving his truck near the Vedder River Bridge in Chilliwack on the morning of Feb. 4 when he got into a singlevehicle accident. He did not survive his injuries. McKitka’s nephew, Will, confirmed he heard from his father that his uncle died in a car crash. “My father told me he Ed McKitka passed away in former mayor a car accident, very few details, and his understanding from his sister was that there was no service,” Will McKitka said Tuesday. “Even at this time, I don’t think there’s going to be anything for the family. It’s going to be very quiet, and that’s all I know.” McKitka was first elected alderman in Surrey in 1968, and then became mayor for one term from 1975-’77. He was subsequently voted out of office. After that, following a police investigation, he was convicted of breach of trust and went to jail for misuse of the office of mayor. i see page 2

ATTENTION

Colourful politician Ed McKitka remembered

A dynamic, divisive leader ...and P franklyy

erhaps the most colourful politician to come out of Surrey, with the exception of Bill Vander Zalm, died in a traffic accident earlier this month. Ed McKitka served as an alderman for about a decade before succeeding Vander Zalm as mayor in the 1975 election. He portrayed himself as being “for the little guy,” and that grassroots populism appeal served him very well over the years. However, his term as mayor was highly controversial and ended with him being convicted of breach of trust and going to jail for misuse of his office. It was a black mark on the city. The investigation was well underway during his term, which ran from 1975-’77, and it was fairly obvious that charges would be pending. That didn’t stop him from running for re-election in 1977, in what was a highly controversial and bitter fight. He ended up losing to alderman Bill Vogel, who only served one term as mayor himself before stepping aside. But McKitka didn’t lose by a landslide. He still had his followers. In fact, the situation at that time had a good deal of today’s (Toronto Mayor) Rob

Former mayor ‘never held a grudge’ i from page 1 After serving his time, McKitka returned and was voted back in as an alderman in 1980. On his return to Surrey council, McKitka leaned over to then-alderman – and future mayor – Bob Bose and said, “Bose, you’re a loser.” Bose remembers McKitka fondly. “He was one of the most charismatic persons I’ve

ever known – incorrigible, but you had to love him.” Bose said there were only two people whom he knew of who could really light up city staff when they walked into city hall. One was former premier Bill Vander Zalm, the other was McKitka. Like all good politicians, Bose said, McKitka would never hold a grudge.

Process derided as neighbours continue criticism of White Rock council

Split vote backs eight-storey care home Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A proposed eight-storey care facility that has been the subject of much controversy in White Rock will proceed. Council voted 4-2 (with Coun. Larry Robinson absent) to give third and final readings Monday to a zoning amendment bylaw that facilitates the project’s construction on the Evergreen Baptist Campus of Care, at 1550 Oxford St. It will add 92 new care beds to the Fraser Health region, and replace 107 existing Evergreen beds. In voting against the project, Coun. Al Campbell said he is not opposed to new care beds for White Rock, but that he has concerns with the process that was followed; that the beds will not be dedicated to White Rock residents; and that the facility won’t be built on the footprint of the two buildings that are being replaced. “Quite frankly, there’s nobody out there that would not want to see additional beds

in White Rock,” Campbell said. “Fifty per cent of the people don’t like the situation. I don’t like the situation and I don’t like how it came to us.” Fraser Health announced the project in October as among four contracts that will increase the health authority’s capacity in the Tri-Cities/Surrey/South Surrey area by 427 beds. (Evergreen’s executive director Stephen Bennett confirmed this month that it had been the subject of confidential discussions for about six months prior.) A public information meeting was held in November, and the project was detailed to council in early December. At that time, “considerable angst” regarding the proposal prompted council members to defer a public hearing until the new year. It was subsequently held over two evenings earlier this month. Many who expressed concerns are residents of the Belaire, a 12-storey condominium located immediately north of where the care facility is to be built. They, too, were

Coun. Al Campbell notes effect on residents. upset with the process, as well as the facility’s anticipated impacts to views, natural light, neighbourhood traffic and property values. Those in favour described the need for more, and updated, facilities for seniors. The bylaw that passed Monday includes amendments to the project that reduce its height by just under three metres, shift its footprint approximately three metres and increase its setback on the west by four metres.

Noting proponents had initially maintained that a number of those changes couldn’t be done, Campbell said he agreed with opponents that the development will be detrimental to its neighbours. “I’m supporting these people that are saying, ‘I’m not against this, I just don’t want this interrupting our lives.’ And it will,” he said. “I think there’s still another way.” Coun. Helen Fathers also voted against. Following the decision, a number of Belaire residents reiterated concerns during question period and were cut short by Mayor Wayne Baldwin, when questions veered towards criticisms of individual councillors or rehashed points aired during the public hearing. “This is kind of degenerating into a ‘(let’s) second-guess council,’” Baldwin said. “We’ve gone through a process, we’ve reached a conclusion of process and it’s over.” After the meeting, Belaire strata president Dennis Lypka described the outcome as “democracy not in action.”

Grounded sailboat subject to U.S. Coast Guard effort

Help was called for boaters A sailboat found grounded on White Rock’s west beach last week was the subject of a U.S. Coast Guard rescue effort. According to a spokesman at the Canadian Coast Guard Rescue Co-ordination Centre in Victoria, six people had to be evacuated from the 34-foot “Being there” in U.S. waters on Feb. 16, the night before it washed ashore. White Rock resident and longtime boater Chris Rideout said he heard the “riveting real-life drama” unfold over his handheld VHF radio. The captain had apparently anchored the boat in Sucia Island’s Ewing Cove while the passengers went for a hike. When he returned to check on the vessel, it had dragged anchor and was hard aground, Rideout said. Rideout described the cove as dangerous, “no place to be in a southeast gale.” He said he heard the boat’s captain tell the Coast Guard that he couldn’t get his GPS to work. A rescue helicopter apparently hovered over the area for two hours, but couldn’t land; and the

Rideout said it is “amazing” the boat made it all the way to White Rock without sinking. He described the forecast for the night as “ominous,” and said he was surprised anyone had ventured out at all. South Surrey resident Gerry Kirk said he and his son, Will, came across the wreck the following afternoon. They also met

two of the people who had been onboard the night before, he said. The couple told the Kirks they’d had trouble with the boat – which belonged to their uncle – and had weighed anchored for the night. They discovered it was gone in the morning. In salvaging belongings, the couple discovered some of their things had been stolen in the short spate of time that the boat was unattended, Kirk added. – Tracy Holmes & Sarah Massah

Out with a whisper

E

vidently South Surrey-White RockCloverdale MP Russ Hiebert intends to leave the arena of local politics much the way he arrived – with a smile and a wave, and precious few explanations for voters in his riding. His decision last week not to run for a fifth term in 2015 has been handled typically. A sudden news release, followed by a firm refusal to comment further. No matter that the language in which his decision is couched – spending time with his family, returning to legal practice, pursuing corporate opportunities – is sufficiently ambiguous to provoke speculation. But Hiebert has always seemed unmoved by such matters. Virtually a stranger on the scene when he first joined the 2004 federal race for the longtime right-wing stronghold, Hiebert’s tenure as local representative has not been characterized by a willingness to answer tough questions on the fly. Some clearly feel he has done a good job for the community, particularly in seeking federal dollars for local infrastructure. But others have been less than impressed by an MP who, for the average voter, has been hard to locate, let alone engage on thorny issues, outside of carefully stagemanaged events, such as Canada Day picnics, seniors forums and ‘good news’ photo-ops. Whenever protesters gather at the local MP’s office, he is usually nowhere to be found. When media have clamoured for comment – such as when he was found to have the second highest MP expenses in Canada, or when opponents have taken him to task for his private member’s bill targeting unions, or when they have questioned his Conservative government’s record in helping Canada’s disabled veterans – his response has been cautious, carefully prepared and, often, long after media deadlines. With due respect, Hiebert is not a politician noted for off-the-cuff eloquence or one who has seized the opportunity to defuse hostility with down-to-earth debate. If he were, he would be willing to answer a few of our many remaining questions: What grade would you give yourself as an MP? What do you say to voters who query the large pension you will receive? To what extent is your decision motivated by the rough ride your private member’s bill received from legal critics and senior politicians? And, finally, what do you intend to accomplish in the remaining 15 months of your term?

“Woman down!”? Methinks taking the time to utter that extra syllable could lead to further peril. We live in an age that seems to reach for gender-neutrality in every word used – often to the point where we scrub down language until the letters form bland and sanitized dreck. In these pages, a reader will often see references to people who head a committee. These people often chair meetings and can be said to hold the “chair” of whatever committee it is they lead. However, readers will rarely see said person referred to as “chair” because, well, it is a ridiculous way to denote someone. They are either a chairman or a chairwoman. A chair is what am sitting on as I type these words. Maybe I am getting old. Maybe I am becoming Archie Bunker. I still refer to “girls” when speaking of ladies in their 30s and 40s. I have found myself reflecting on the actions of female aldermen from days gone by And I will never be comfortable with that most unwieldy of terms – ombudsperson. Kim Carter may not have the Y chromosome, but she will always be B.C. ombudsman to me. And, if I am feeling charitable, she can even be ombudswoman. Granted, these are not issues that threaten the future of (hu)mankind, but we really should (wo)man up and defend the sanctity of language, lest the genderneutrality police (wo)manhandle our vocabulary into total submission.

Spinning views of a columnist Editor: Re: Who provoked a school strike? Feb. 18 column. I’m surprised that there has been no outrage expressed against your BC Views columnist, Tom Fletcher, for the position he took on the endless dispute between the government and the teachers. The government has broken the law at least twice, the B.C. Supreme Court has ruled against the government twice, yet Fletcher blames the teachers. How can this be? The government commits the crime, but teachers are the criminals? And why hasn’t Fletcher lain the responsibility for this on Premier Christy Clark, who was, after all, the minister of education in 2002 and introduced the law that is proven to be in violation of the Constitution of Canada? William Bell, White Rock Q Re: Old Man Take a Look at your Facts, Jan. 21 column. Columnist Tom Fletcher’s clever little title could have been the headline to any number of his colourful little tales of ideological spin and cherry-picked nuggets. We can say what we want about Neil Young, but few of us – even with his kind of money – would be willing to stick our necks out like that. He has always been the proverbial thorn in someone’s side. Name-calling and counter-attacks are just part of the territory. As for the so-called slanted oilsands documentary that Fletcher mentions, it was likely a recent episode of CBC’s Fifth Estate – Conservatives hate the CBC – called “The Silence of the Labs.” Now there’s a title that fits the subject matter. It’s no secret that Prime Minister Stephen Harper fears the kind of science that threatens his big plan of turning Canada into a fire-breathing superpower. So it’s no surprise that he’s fired hundreds of world-class scientists and researchers whom no longer fit the ideological mould of the Conservative government. Unfortunately, Canadians lose a vast wealth of information and innovation that’s best used for shaping sound government policy. The exportation of unwanted science and the very undemocratic process of gutting Canada’s environmentalprotection laws are basically forcing Canadians to stand up for the safety of their communities. Laws that were once capable of balancing safety with economic growth have fallen victim to the mad rush of getting to the market on time. Once again, the scores are tipped in favour of the big polluters. So are we impressed by the early results? Do we accept the exploding pipelines, oil spills and derailments as the cost of doing business? Perhaps it depends on where you live. Don’t get me wrong. I drive a car, too. But does that mean we can’t say no to the haste and persuasive nature of the new-age industrial machine? I know, it’s all about jobs. But couldn’t we slow it down a notch

or two and make sure that no one is being put in harm’s way. Because this thing has short-term gain for long-term pain written all over it. Long may you run, Mr. Fletcher, but like Mr. Young, we’re more than just a little concerned about what’s going to happen after the gold rush. John Freeman, White Rock (Ed. note: The “slanted” documentary Fletcher referred to was a 2011 episode of CBC’s Nature of Things, “The Tipping Point: The Age of the Oil Sands,” narrated by David Suzuki.)

Frustration over holiday surprise Editor: I am a retired person who gets frustrated when being taken advantaged of. My wife and I parked downtown Vancouver Jan. 1 to see a performance at the Orpheum. We had a parking sign that said $15 regular/$7.50 “Sat, Sun & Holidays.” New Year’s Day should be a holiday. I assumed the meter would charge us $7.50 – nope $15. On the first business day after the holidays, I attempted to speak to a representative of the parking lot. Of course, no one answers a call and I

am directed to correspond by email. I can do that. I have pictures of receipts to prove my position. I have pictures of the lot number and the rates. I asked for a correction. The parking authority claimed their meter was not updated to reflect what their sign said: “Sorry. Send a copy of your receipt.” Did that. I have been back and forth many times – the $7.50 is now not an issue. Now, they sent me a picture of a sign that says “Saturday and Sunday” that would disqualify my request. I sent them back a picture of the lot’s sign that shows “Sat, Sun & Holidays” – I do qualify. How many of our out-of-town guests or senior citizens just eat the “error” and make the parking authority enhance their revenue? Ross Forman, Surrey

It’s the rumble, not the noise Editor: I am writing to express my concerns about White Rock waterfront railroad. There was a time when rail transport served the needs of its people. It no longer does that and only serves the needs of industry.

We have often sat at the picnic tables and watched the trains come and go. We see enormous pollution coming from the engines, not the coal cars, we hear the trains’ whistles that are unnecessarily deafening – a whistle that you could feel would make a steamship more serene. But our greatest concern is not the track rails but the wheels on some of the rail cars. Some of the wheels pound the track so hard that we feel it through the picnic table. Every train that goes by has many of these pounding wheels. These are the wheels that can split and derail the train while hundreds of people walk alongside the families. It is not the noise or the pollution that kills people. It is simply that we allow people to walk on the rails and tracks. Anywhere there is an auto freeway there are overpasses for pedestrians to cross. People are simply not allowed to cross freeways. Cars at Crescent Beach, for example, are forewarned by flashing red lights. It only makes sense to have a single crossing at East Beach, with bells and flashing lights as a minimum requirement. Rail cars with pounding wheels should be reported by sensors of some kind, especially the ones that pound so hard the ground shakes. Merlet Shukrish, White Rock

Architect Patrick Cotter presents his earlier vision for South Surrey at an open house held Dec. 4.

Accepting more than mediocrity Editor: I wish to voice my strong support for this progressive project now in the planning stages at 19 Avenue and 152 Street in South Surrey (Arts towers opponents out in force, Jan. 23; Arts-towers proposal to be revamped, Feb. 13). Having said that, I emphasize with the many opposing concerns expressed by opposing forces. These are all valid concerns, however almost all are considered in the planning work already done by the City of Surrey and outlined in the Official Community Plan in draft 2013, and in the ‘Semiahmoo Town Centre Plan’ of 2012, which will soon be updated to include areas up to 24 Avenue. We need a lot of housing units on the Peninsula in the next 25 years, and this project provides needed housing. There appears unanimity across most forecasting agencies that there will be another million people living in the Lower Mainland in 25 years, and we have a moral obligation to do our part here on the Peninsula. If we were to spread these people out on an equal geographic pro-rata basis across urban areas, we would soon calculate that the Semiahmoo Peninsula will clearly need 30,000 new household units by the year 2040. This project has a strong community component. ‘Community’ to me means residential projects that

provide, or encourage residents to provide, amenities that make it easier for residents to interact, support each other and, in extreme cases, protect each other. I believe the extent of community components for this particular project – being arts oriented – are far in excess of anything seen in most single projects. As well, this project presents some long-awaited – but conservative – iconic architecture. Without being demeaning, please allow me to suggest we are somewhat lacking in outstanding architecture on the Semiahmoo Peninsula. What we have seems mediocre at best. Let us each decide ourselves, but please consider the following definition of iconic architecture: “Iconic architecture is usually a design that is ‘groundbreaking,’ one that sets new standards in its field, is often a benchmark for other similar projects and other designers; it stands up to the test of time, remaining a good design, despite the passing of years, decades and even centuries.” In closing, may I congratulate the City of Surrey for progressive planning work on our community plans, the co-developers for their vision and ongoing patience, and the architects for their vision and for detail considerations required to satisfy official community plans.

Victim’s brother charged The victim’s brother has been charged after a Surrey teacher was found dead in a Coquitlam home Sunday afternoon. The RCMP’s Integrated Homicide Investigation Team said Jarek Paderewski, 27, has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of Maja Paderewska, 33, a teacher at North Surrey Secondary. According to investigators, emergency crews found the deceased woman after they were called to the 2900-block of Panorama Drive at around 3 p.m. for a person in medical

distress. “We are working with the Coquitlam RCMP to determine what occurred at the residence and if the male in custody played any part in this homicide,” said Sgt. Adam MacIntosh of IHIT. North Surrey alumnus Tanu Gill said Paderewska would often stay late at the school to mentor students. “If you ever needed something, you could instantly go to Miss Paderewska. You know she’s always there after school, during lunch and you could talk to her about anything.” – with files from CBC

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Urban planning guru Jason Roberts offers up ways to revitalize Newton

Getting an outsider’s view of Surrey Kevin Diakiw Black Press

A

n immense “outdoor room” with children playing in the trees, seniors engaged in games of bocci and vendors selling their wares in front of colourful murals. A troubled area of Newton – currently home to drug dealers, addicts and residents afraid for their safety – could be revitalized with these ideas and very little effort, says urban-planning guru Jason Roberts. Roberts, an information technology expert from Oklahoma, has given several TED talks – speeches at the non-profit big-ideasfocused TED Conference – on his concept, “Build a Better Block.” The idea is that neighbourhoods can experience positive change through the work of grassroots involvement by citizens. On Saturday, Roberts was the keynote speaker at the Surrey Arts Centre during the launch of Surrey Steps Up – a community engagement project created by the Surrey RCMP in partnership with the city that mirrors Roberts’ Build a Better Block model. As part of his visit, Roberts toured different parts of the city with Surrey planners. Last week, Black Press took him to one of the city’s biggest trouble spots: the municipally owned space near 72 Avenue and 136 Street where 53-year-old hockey mom Julie Paskall was brutally beaten to death late last year outside Newton Arena. After Paskall’s murder, one of the initial proposals by the city to make the area safer was to cut down a grove of heritage trees in order to provide clear sight lines, thereby flushing out the drug dealers. But Roberts says the trees are a tremendous asset and should be left standing. His first impression of the Newton hub? The problem isn’t so much that a bad element has found its way there, he says, it’s more that the good element hasn’t been invited in a meaningful way. Roberts says the city should create a welcome place for lingering (by the right demographic) rather than have the area exist as a corridor where people pass through quickly to get somewhere else. To accomplish that, several elements could be brought into the green space, he says. Rope and wood platforms – connected from tree to tree – would provide a place for kids to play among the large cedars. Want to usher out the bad element? Roberts suggests piping in classical music. It’s a strategy that has worked in some of Robert’s

His advice for getting started? Don’t overthink projects, and don’t wait for the finished product before asking people to come out, connect and enjoy the public space. Send out the invitations, and “blackmail” yourself into getting the job done, Roberts says. The longer you wait, the more chance you’ll talk yourself out of making the change.

A Surrey-based community organization invites people from all spiritual backgrounds to a day-long dialogue event aimed at deepening relationships and building trust between various groups that make up the city. The Progressive Intercultural Community Services (PICS) Society will host the Surrey Spiritual Summit Saturday (March 1) at Alexandra Neighbourhood House, 2916 McBride Ave., from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event is open to people “from all religious, spiritual and philosophical traditions,” including those who identify as agnostic, humanist or not observant. Organizer David Dalley said the focus of the event is to build awareness and

acceptance, but he also hopes for deeper interaction that may last after the summit has wrapped up. “What I’d really, really like to see at events like this are those informal connections that people make,” he said. “They introduce each other, maybe they find out they have something in common, they exchange emails or phone numbers and that’s the sort of informal connections that I really think we need in our community to bridge those lines of difference that we set up arbitrarily.” Registration is required and space is limited. The event is free and lunch will be provided. Register online at www. surreyspiritualsummit. eventbrite.ca or contact David Dalley at interfaith@ movingtogether.ca or 778-988-3549.

When you sleep, do you really recover? A mattress scientifically designed for the world's elite athletes is now available for everyone in need of restorative sleep. THE WORLD'S FIRST RESPONSIVE TEXTILE

WITH CLINICALLY PROVEN BENEFITS TO THE HUMAN BODY Celliant® has been proven in clinical tests to reduce pain, increase oxygen levels, and help balance body temperature. Each of these results can have added benefits including faster healing, increased performance, better quality sleep, and improved overall wellness, all of which can help alleviate the symptoms of arthritis and peripheral vascular disease often associated with diabetes. The key to Celliant® lies in its ability to absorb and store the electromagnetic (energy) emission from the human body and release them where they are reabsorbed into the skin and deep muscle tissue. In the deep muscle tissue they act as catalysts for natural, biological processes resulting in enhanced oxygen levels and more balanced body temperature during sleep, rest or physical activity.

Southridge students take to the stage

Heading into the woods Alex Browne Arts Reporter

Alex Browne photo

Grade 9-12 students at Southridge School will hone their acting skills during their production of Into The Woods.

A long time before television’s Once Upon A Time, Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine posed a similar question in their Broadway musical Into The Woods – what would happen if all the well-known fairy tale characters were following their destinies and motivations simultaneously, and all the familiar tales began to collide and intermingle? As this week’s production of the Tony Award-winner by Southridge School attests, the answer is total – and comedic – chaos. Quests become confused, fairy-tale romances go sideways and outcomes are irrevocably altered. Judging by a brief runthrough of scenes last week,

a keen cast – featuring senior school students in Grades 9-12 plus Southridge teachers Max Sterelyukhin, Kierstan McCaw and Doug Barnim – is ready to act and sing up a storm under the direction of teacher Jennifer Kelly. Into The Woods runs tonight and tomorrow (Feb. 27 and 28) at 7 p.m., with two 2 p.m. matinees only on Saturday and Sunday (March 1-2), in the school’s Alan Brown Great Hall. While Kelly said it’s “light-hearted for the most part,” don’t expect a Disney princess vision – Into The Woods is more in keeping with the darker hues of the Grimm Brothers’ tales, which, she added, “were originally intended to enlighten us through moral i see page 24

And while comedy legends Zero Mostel, Jack Gilford and Nathan Lane have cast pretty long shadows over the material, the players, for the most part, do well inhabiting the property – even if, at times, they seem to be renters, rather than owning it outright. Weakest links in the current production of the Stephen Sondheim-Burt Shevelove-Larry

shrieking eunuchs to stalwart centurions in the blink of an eye. Kudos, too, to an appealing chorus of courtesans from the house of procurer Marcus Lycus (Kirsten Stewart, Kait Busswood, Krystle Hadlow, Sarah Smith and Tanisha Beattie) who sing nicely and prove equally – and gamely – willing to hurl themselves into the spirit of the piece. But it’s here that Funny Thing really shows its old-school origins – aside from individual physical attributes, there’s little in the writing to differentiate the largely interchangeable courtesans or give the actresses more to work with than burlesque-style i see page 25

funny thing did happen on the way to the forum. White Rock Players’ Club has taken another welcome step outside of its comfort zone and the result is a nice, respectable version of a nice, bawdy musical comedy of Ancient Rome. Judging by audience reaction at last Wednesday night’s performance, A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum is sure to provoke its share of guffaws and chuckles, particularly if your tastes run to door-slamming farce, crossed with extended burlesque skit.

‘A magical story’ i from page 23 lessons.” In the fairy-tale environment, a narrator (Nick Adams) introduces two ordinary mortals – a baker (Bryan Redies) and his wife (Abby Wells) who long to have a child but are denied parenthood by the curse of a witch (Megan Galbraith). To break the curse, they must journey “into the woods” to find four things – which turn out to be the red cape of Little Red Riding Hood (Adriana Dobbie), the slippers of Cinderella (Nicole Moretto), the hair of Rapunzel (Catherine Mah) and the cow owned by Jack in the Beanstalk (Harris Wong) and his mother (Sarah Kavanaugh).

There are also two princes involved – Cinderella’s (Drew Coles) and Rapunzel’s (Elijah Hewer) – but don’t expect fairy-tale perfection there either. “They’re comedy relief, playing on the stereotypical prince image,” Kelly said. While the first act emphasizes the comedy of colliding storylines, the second counts a more realistic cost of characters’ choices. “It’s such a magical story,” she added. “But it also talks about social and individual responsibility. For a school community it has a good message.” Tickets are $10. To buy tickets online, visit www.southridge.bc.ca or call 604-535-5056.

Strong comedic acting throughout Forum i from page 23 objectification. Subtleties of characterization, of course, are scarcely a feature of a show the authors originally intended as a vehicle for Phil Silvers. And the main female roles, it must be said, are also caricatures – albeit well-executed ones. Helen Volkow shows she understands the function of Roman matron Domina, mistress of Pseudolous’ household, and plays her with admirable lack of restraint, while Rebekah MacEwan cheerfully embodies the air-headed Philia, resigned to her fate as purchased bride of Roman general Miles Gloriosus. MacEwan’s singing expertise prevails over Sondheim’s often-challenging note intervals, and she is well matched by Dann Wilhelm as Hero, Domina’s lovestruck son.

Veteran White Rock panto comic Ray Van Ieperen seems to be tailor-made for his role as twitchy senior slave Hysterium, outwitted at every turn by the devious Pseudolous (he reveals some good singing chops, too) and wrings the requisite laughs from a turn in drag. And Raymond Hatton capitalizes fully on his comedic opportunities as aging Roman senator Senex – henpecked husband of Domina – whose libido is re-awakened by the presence of Philia and the proximity of Lycus’ establishment. Pat McDermott plays the latter with an air of almost perpetual depravity well-suited to the role, and Matt Loop wins his fair share of laughs lampooning heroic posturing as the vainglorious Gloriosus, while Dan Tribe,

DEVELOPMENT OF A PEST MANAGEMENT PLAN # 701-002-14/19 Metro Vancouver has prepared a draft Pest Management Plan (PMP) for the purpose of controlling the larval stage of nuisance mosquito species that signiďŹ cantly impact quality of life in limited parts of the region. Proposed treatment areas are: Metro Vancouver owned and/or managed lands and facilities; non-private lands within the City of Coquitlam, the District of Maple Ridge, the City of Pitt Meadows, the City of Surrey, and non-private and some private lands in the Township of Langley. Application of larvicide will occur annually between April and September in artiďŹ cial waterbodies, standing water and areas prone to ooding. The PMP would be in effect for a ďŹ ve year period. Products that may be used include: Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis (Bti) – VectoBac – PCP# 18158 Bacillus sphaericus (Bsph) – VectoLex – PCP# 28008 These products are registered for use in Canada, are target speciďŹ c, non-residual and non-toxic. Chemical control of adult mosquitoes is expressly excluded. Manner of application will be by hand, backpack blower, truck-mounted sprayer or all terrain vehicle- mounted blower and helicopter. Applicant contact information: Rhea Leroux, Park Operations Technician, Planning, Policy and Environment Department, Metro Vancouver 4330 Kingsway, Burnaby, BC V5H 4G8 Tel: 604-432-6294 Email: rhea.leroux@metrovancouver.org A copy of the draft PMP can be obtained from the Metro Vancouver website: www.metrovancouver.org - search: Mosquito Control Program

Band retires It’s the end of an era and the beginning of a new musical venture. Mojo Zydeco leader Randy Schultz says the Mardi Gras dance this Saturday night at the Royal Canadian Legion Crescent Branch 240 (2643 128 St., doors 7 p.m.) will be the last for the popular local band, which never fully recovered from the deaths of keyboardist Jack Velker in 2009 and Schultz’s wife Jane, co-founder and rub-board player, in 2012. But Schultz is reconnecting with musical colleagues Tony Rees and Dave Clairmont of Blues Caboose (also featured at the dance) for a yetunnamed band that will offer a fresh take on vintage blues, with a definite Louisiana Zydeco influence. Tickets are $15 at the door, or at 604-5351080.

A person wishing to contribute information about a proposed treatment site, relevant to the development of the Pest Management Plan, may send copies of the information to the applicant at the address above within 30 days of the publication of this notice.

Weeklong break for Birds before BCHL playoffs

Eagles pick up three points on Island trip Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The Surrey Eagles wrapped up their regularseason schedule with three points on an Island-Division road trip, with the third point coming Sunday in a gutsy effort against the first-place Victoria Grizzlies. Against the Grizzlies – who are tied with the Langley Rivermen for the most points in the BC Hockey League – Surrey trailed 2-0 after the opening 20 minutes, and 2-1 after 40, thanks to a second-period power-play goal

from Matthew Dawson. In the third period, the visiting Birds – playing their third game in three days – tied the game, again on the power play, on a goal from blue-liner Kale Bennett. The deadlock lasted all of seven seconds, however, as Victoria’s Garrett Forster restored his team’s lead with an unassisted marker. For most of the final 10 minutes, the Eagles stormed the Grizzlies’ net trying for the equalizer, and the pressure finally paid off when Eagles’ leading scorer and captain Dan-

ton Heinen tied the game 3-3 with 28 seconds left, sending the game into overtime. Victoria was successful in the extra frame, outshooting Surrey 3-0 before Jacob Kearney scored the winner at the 3:35 mark. Goaltender Bo Didur was tagged with the loss for the Eagles, despite making 30 saves. The Eagles’ weekend began Friday in Powell River, with the Kings defeating the visitors 4-1. Whereas Sunday’s game featured two power-play goals for the Eagles, Friday’s was

quite the opposite, as it was the Kings who lit the lamp twice with the man advantage, while the Eagles struggled, going 0-for-4. Powell River took a 2-0 lead on a pair of late first-period goals, the first a power-play goal from Aidan Wright with 1:46 left in the period, and the second, from Curtis McCarrick, with 44 ticks left on the clock. The home team extended the lead to 3-0 in the second – Jared Lukosevicius scored the team’s second power-play goal – and Eagles’ i see page 32

Eagles to face Rivermen i from page 31 Darius Davidson cut the lead to 3-1 with an even-strength goal eight minutes later. In the third, Lukosevicius struck again, with 1:30 left in the game to put the game on ice. As was the case Sunday, Didur was again between the pipes for the Eagles, stopping 37 of 41 shots. The Eagles’ only win of the weekend trip came Saturday in Nanaimo, with the visitors escaping Frank Crane Arena with a 3-1 victory. Anthony Conti – who has now scored seven goals in 18 games since being acquired by the Eagles in January – led the charge with a pair of goals, including one into the empty net. Joseph Drapluk, on the power play, rounded out the scoring.

Didur earned the win, stopping 31 shots. With the regular-season now complete, the Eagles – who finished the season with a 25-30-1-2 record – get set to face the Langley Rivermen in the first round of playoffs. The team will have the upcoming weekend off while the rest of the teams wrap up remaining games, with the playoffs set to begin the following week.

Ocean City boxer already owns one title

Wright to vie for welterweight belt Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Josh Wright boxer

-DAY SAME D! U REF N

South Surrey boxer Josh Wright is set to fight for a second belt this weekend at Langley’s Cascades Casino. On Friday, the 29-year-old Ocean City Boxing fighter, who fights in the 154-pound super-welterweight division – and currently holds the provincial title belt in that weight

class – will drop down to the 147pound welterweight division and fight Maple Ridge’s Oliver Vadja for that B.C. title. The title was vacated after the former champion, who was scheduled to fight Wright in January, backed out of the fight. Now, the top two contenders will duke it out. The decision to fight at a lower weight class is both practical – at

five-foot-nine, Wright often fights opponents larger than him in the 154-pound division – and strategic. Should he be successful Friday, Wright would have the choice to compete at Western Canadian championships in either division, giving him more options en route to nationals and, beyond that, world amateur championships. i see page 34

Welcome to the driver’s seat

Can Toyota’s Tundra ride alongside heavyweight brands like Ford, GM or Ram?

Tugging at the tails of top selling trucks If there is one segment of the auto business that takes dynamite to get people to change brands, it’s the full-size pickup truck category, I’m sure most of us know of someone who is a “Ford guy” or The Tundra is “Chevy diehard” owner, even as capable as and getting him or her to move to a new many of the domestic truck would be almost brands but in some impossible. ways it still has a way It wasn’t until the last to go to truly be an Toyota Tundra was introduced in 2007 that alternative to Ford, Toyota was a real conGM and Ram. tender. That 2007 Tundra and this refreshed 2014 Zack Spencer model are designed, engineered and even built in America, helping to pull loyal domestic buyers away. The Tundra is even as capable as many of the domestic brands but in some ways it still has a way to go to truly be an alternative to Ford, GM and Ram.

‘‘

is a step up from the lower trims but not nearly as supple and luxurious as the new batch of interiors from Ram and GM. Those trucks, in particular, have almost luxury-sedan interiors that make the driver forget they are in a truck. The Tundra, in comparison, is a bit stark, featuring a hard, simple plastic dash and door pieces that don’t compare. The centre screen is smaller than many competitors are, and the screen embedded in the instrument cluster is small. What has been improved is the overall layout of the centre console. The back seat is massive and flips up with just one hand to make room for interior storage. I found the last Tundra to have a very high seating position that limited headroom. This new 2014 seems to have a better seating position, no longer crimping headroom for taller drivers.

number of domestic buyers willing to give Tundra a try. On the road, I was surprised at just how rough the ride is in comparison to the all-new GM trucks, which really are like driving a big sedan. I would also place the Ford F-150 and Ram 1500 a very close second in ride comfort. The Tundra is choppy on rough roads and the noise level is on the high side. Toyota claims to have improved ride quality on this refreshed 2014 model but I am not a fan of the ride. Verdict The Tundra is a capable truck. When equipped it can tow up to 4760 kg, which is on the high side in this class. What surprised me the most was the real “trucky” ride. I have had extensive seat time in all three domestic brands over the past year and I have to say that they are best sellers for a reason – the refinement is rather dramatic.

Drive Powering the Tundra are two V8 gasoline engines. The base model has a 4.6L V8 with 310hp and 327 lb.-ft. of torque. The larger 5.7L has 381hp and 401 lb.-ft. of torque. This is one area that the Toyota cannot compete; there is no V6 offered and no diesel (Ram only), which the domestic makers do offer. By limiting the available engine options and not having a heavy-duty model that will certainly diminish the

The Lowdown Power: 4.6L V8 with 310hp or 5.7L V8 with 381hp Fill-up: 15.8L/11.0L/100km (city/highway 5.6L) Sticker price: $26,750-$54,000 zack.spencer@drivewaybc.ca

Looks As part of the 2014 redesign, Toyota went about setting up a slightly different look for each of its trim levels. Sold as an SR5, Limited and Platinum, each has a variation of the oversized front grille. The wheel openings are now larger and squarer, framing wheel sizes ranging from 18-inches on the SR5 and Limited and 20-inches on the Platinum. The Tailgate has a soft open feature, stopping it from slamming down, that is fantastic but there is no side step or ladder into the bed the way Ford and the new GM trucks have. Sold as a regular car, double cab or Crew Cab, there is a model for most buyers. Inside Just as the outside was redesigned to have a unique character for each trim, the inside mimics this idea. The Platinum model I tested is covered with a diamond pattern, or quilted look used on the leather seatbacks, side door inserts and dash front panel. It

Volvo circles the wagon for success Las Vegas, Nevada – Volvo is hitching some of its revival hopes to a wagon – the 2015 Volvo V60 Sportswagon. Its grille is clearly all-Volvo but those typically boxy looks that characterized the make from your dad’s day are gone. In looks it’s a design variation of the S60 sedan and it will be a welcome sight for loyalists of the Swedish brand, having witnessed the demise here of the V50 and midsize V70 wagons. The wagon featured recently along with the S60 and XC60 crossover at a launch event in the Nevada desert. The Volvo execs The T5-equipped present proudly talked about wagon is a smooth their new Drive-E operator in powertrains, performance and ride... developed thanks to the megabucks while you won’t burn available now rubber at the green that the company lights; it will take off is owned by the Chinese Geely when necessary. Automotive. Ford Keith Morgan ownership may now be retreating in Volvo’s rearview mirror but it is still beholden to the US manufacturer for the platforms upon which these three 2015 models ride. That will change later this year when the full-size XC90 crossover is set to sit atop Volvo’s so-called Scalable Product Architecture platform. Model year 2014 saw a refresh of all three midsize Volvo models showing in the desert so this was truly about the new engines. The Drive-E family of

‘‘

’’

Volvo XC 60 gas, diesel and hybrid (the latter not yet, but soon) engines are built around a single, 2.0-litre fourcylinder powerplant. It’s a brave gamble, worthy of Vegas, when you ponder the XC90 relying on such a small engine. Asked if this were a safe bet, the Swedes just smiled and promised the performance of the four-cylinder configuration will equal their big brothers by using such technologies as direct fuel injection, turbocharging, supercharging and . . . electrification. Here in the Great White North, just the two gas engines will be offered initially – the new turbocharged T5 pumps out 240 horsepower, while the turbo’ed and supercharged T6 adds another 62 horses. The base front-wheel-drive V60 T5, with a new eight-speed automatic transmission, will set you back $39,800. Volvos have never been cheap. The other three Sportswagons will continue to use existing powerplants, six-speed automatic I got plenty of seat time in the V60 and S60 (S60 with T5 $37,750. T6 $42,850), taking in the aweinspiring beauty of the Valley of Fire state park and Red Rock Canyon. The T5-equipped wagon is a smooth operator in

performance and ride. And while you won’t burn rubber at the green light, it will take off when necessary . . . not that we got any chance to pass in the low speed limit state park! Volvo says it will hit 100 km/h in 6.3 seconds if given the lead foot treatment. (The T6 in sedan tells a slightly racier story. Ok, maybe I’m exaggerating but only a little and I look forward pressing the pedal to the metal where I can legally do so.) The T5 fuel economy ratings fare well in comparison with the market competition – 9.4/6.3/8.1 L/100km (city/hwy/combined). These numbers are squeezed out of the power plant with the help of the standard engine stop/start system and the efficient new eight-speed transmission, which slips into a neutral coasting mode when you lift your foot off the gas. Inside, the instrument panel stretches the span of the car and features an attractive floating centre console, which mixes good looks with functionality. Swedes are safety conscious, of course, and that means lane change, cross traffic, blind spot warnings and alerts. The front seating is comfortable if a little soft on a long drive. Rear seating ditto and headroom is good despite the coupe-style slope of the rear. And a good view of the road fore, fore aft and side is enjoyed by all. Great stowage room in the rear. The 40/20/40 split second row folds flat to provide enough space to move a small apartment’s furniture. Just kidding but you get the picture.

Where rubber hits road matters in tire selection Tires are one of the most important features of the truck when it comes to improving its ride. It is vital to make the right choice and then maintain them so they last for a long time. Before you choose the best tire for your truck, it is essential to understand the terms of the truck tire world. Tires for example are specified in this form 265/75R/16. The first number is the width of the truck tire, the second number is the aspect ratio or height of the sidewall and the third number is the wheel diameter or rim size. The height of your sidewall is important and should be chosen based on the conditions where you drive your truck most often. If you only drive on the street then a low profile truck tire will be fine, but if you go off-roading then you are going to want more tire in between your rim and the ground. That way you will not bottom out on the rims when the tires encounter rough terrain off-road. Wider tires have more contact area with the ground, thus giving your truck a better grip, both on and off road. Your truck’s handling becomes easier because of the bigger tire width. On the other hand, the same wider truck tire will make more noise and may decrease the fuel efficiency of the truck. Wider tires can also slip more when it rains, not that it rains much in Vancouver. The size of the rim is a personal preference. The larger sized rims are popular today. Just make sure that the rim and truck tire you choose will fit inside the wheel well of the truck, and don’t forget to upgrade your brakes to help stop this increase in weight. The wheel rim width varies from truck to truck. It can be custom made to suit both on and off road driving conditions. The wheel rim width is rounded off to the nearest half inch of the tire. Usually, the best choice is to have the rim width at about 90 percent of the tread width of the tire. The most important safety aspect of maintenance on your truck is to keep its tires intact and in good shape. A blown tire can cause an accident in an instant. The number one cause of the tire wear and tear is incorrect tire pressure. Adequate air pressure is important for a good tire life, handling, and traction. Look through your owner’s

manual, on the sticker inside the driver’s door, or look on the tire itself to find the correct air pressure that you need to maintain them.

Cold temperatures are responsible for dropping the air pressure of the tires, and warm temperatures are responsible for increasing the

tear of the truck’s tires by rotating them often. Rotating the tires, keeps the tread wear balanced and can really help when slippery and wet

air pressure. A 10 per cent swing in the temperatures causes a 1lb. change in the air pressure. You can reduce the wear and

conditions occur. A simple rule about rotating your tires is to do it on every other oil change. Doing this consistent basis, will make the tires

Lifesaving cold weather fun on four wheels ‘‘

Learning car control in less than perfect circumstances is available to all who have $795... It’s money extremely well spent.

’’

Alexandra Straub

The man from BMW once called me a hooker. Surprisingly, I wasn’t that offended. I actually laughed at such a descriptor, as did everyone else around me. I didn’t feel so bad because I wasn’t the only one in the group labelled thusly at the brand’s Driver Training; a full day of driving 3 Series sedans (back then) to improve our own car control. I didn’t have too many years of driving experience back then but I unfortunately I had picked up a few bad habits on the road. What’s a ‘hooker,’ according to the instructors at the German automaker’s training? Someone who hooks his or her hand into the steering wheel when making a turn. It’s a big boo-boo and not an effective way to drive. It’s also totally unsafe should an accident occur in the process. Needless to say, pointing out the ‘hooker’ in me caused me to change my habits for the better. And in the most recent installment of learning car control with BMW, no such noun was used when relating to my technique.

BMW’s Winter Driver Training Thank goodness. It’s minus 15 degrees at the ICAR track in Mirabel, Quebec. The sun is out and there’s a lineup of all-new 435i coupes just begging to be driven. Some are equipped with the brand’s all-wheel drive system.

Some are rear-wheel drive. Regardless, I’ll have my way with both configurations by the end of the day, so to speak. The adventure is better known as the Winter Driver Training program, offered exclusively at the ICAR location. That said, you don’t need to own a BMW to participate. Learning car control in less than perfect circumstances is available to all who have $795. In my opinion, it’s money extremely well spent. The day starts out with an in-class session that goes over theory and what will be executed throughout the various exercises. It’s kept relatively short so we have more drive time. It’s mentioned that we’ll be practicing manouevres with and without electronic help, to put both power and performance to the test. Oh yeah. Proper seating position is outlined when we initially get behind the wheel. Then we’re off. You might ask what is the point behind putting one of BMW’s > See page 40

BLOWOUT SALE

The recent snow has brought out the best and worst in B.C. drivers. If your car is not shod for the winter weather, then stay home or take a cab. Otherwise, take off slowly in a higher gear than in dry weather. You will stand a lot more chance of gaining traction and be less reliant on those who dig you out!

latest products sideways on an ice track in subzero temperatures. My initial answer is only three letters long and to the point: fun. But that’s only a byproduct of what the impetus behind the program is; a program that started back in 1977 and is now offered in 35 countries. The main goal is safety. It’s designed to introduce drivers to techniques that might help correct the car if it is not doing what you want it to for whatever reason. For example, if your wheels are pointed in one direction, but your car is going straight ahead, what should you do? That’s called understeer. The instinctual thing to do is keep adding more steering, but that won’t help. Ease off the throttle and try to straighten your wheel so your tires can regain grip. Or, if you feel the back end of the car breaking loose, how do you wrangle it in? You countersteer and don’t lift off the throttle. It sounds easier said than done, but the techniques do work! Putting yourself and the 435i through the paces in a safe and controlled environment is the best place to learn. If you spin out, you’re not going to go into oncoming traffic. You just stop, turn the car around, and keep going. You’ll probably giggle a little in the process and tell yourself you’ll “get it next time.” Heck, if you knock over a few cones, no one will judge you either. It’s all part of the process. There are also dynamic braking exercises that teach you how the car reacts when you have ABS, and what you can do in these conditions. You’ll even learn reverse 180s. Philippe Létourneau is the head instructor of the program and says, “People learn a lot more when they’re having fun.” I agree. He also mentions that if people walk away from the course with a couple of newly established driving habits that make them overall a safe driver, that’s ideal. However, if your face doesn’t feel stiff from smiling, or your abs don’t hurt from laughing, perhaps you weren’t trying hard enough. What’s not to like about that?

Coming home to Fairborne’s Ashbury Hill in Surrey By Kerry Vital

Craftsman style and nature are combining at Ashbury Hill, Fairborne’s townhome project that offers two- and threebedroom homes at a great price. Located in Surrey’s Panorama neighbourhood, Ashbury Hill continues to demonstrate Fairborne’s commitment to highquality, beautiful homes. “With meticulous planning and attention to detail, Ashbury

Hill has been designed for your comfort with thoughtful layouts and contemporary finishings,” says sales manager Tara Lok. “Ashbury Hill offers tremendous value.” Among the features you’ll find inside are gourmet kitchens with stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops and tons of storage space, luxurious bathrooms with glass accents and large soaker tubs, and laminate wood flooring throughout the main level. The homes share access to a lush protected greenbelt, giving

homeowners a sense of natural, quiet serenity. “Taking inspiration from its surroundings, the design of this community has been driven by the lay of the land, view lines, and the natural landscaping of the surrounding greenbelt,” says Lok. Move-in ready homes start at $289,900. For more information, visit www.ashburyhill.com or call 604-953-1211.

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

VillageWalk sales manager Angela Jorgenson notes that the community is already garnering buzz in West Maple Ridge. There will be 23 single-family homes in the project, above right, in a range of three- and four-bedroom floorplans.

West Maple Ridge welcomes VillageWalk to the neighbourhood By Kerry Vital

Quality and location are combining at VillageWalk, an exclusive community of 23 homes that has been garnering plenty of attention from local residents. “People have been waiting for a long time and it’s finally here,” says sales manager Angela Jorgenson. “In just a matter of a few weeks, we’ve had close to 100 registrants expressing interest in the plans and wanting to buy sooner rather than later.”

Developed from a partnership between Woodbrige Properties and local Maple Ridge builder Pivotal Developments, VillageWalk is currently open for pre-sale by appointment only. The show home is expected to be opening in late spring/early summer. However, people have the opportunity to make their selection right now. “The location is one of the biggest selling points so far,” says Jorgenson. “It’s central to everything that’s important, including schools, shopping and leisure activities.”

It’s also just moments from the Golden Ears Bridge, West Coast Express and Lougheed Highway, making commuting very easy from this West Maple Ridge location. The spacious three- and four-bedroom single-family homes are available in a range of floorplans, as well as rancher designs that Jorgenson says are in the process of being designed and have already been the subject of a great deal of interest. “The developers have spent a good deal of time on the plans, ensuring that they are very livable for each of our homeowners,” she says. The homes range from approximately 2,200 to over 2,300 square feet plus basement, built with contemporary Craftsman-style architecture and large patios and decks tailormade for entertaining or relaxing.

Nine-foot ceilings on the main floor contribute to the sense of space, along with oversized picture windows and vaulted ceilings in the master bedroom. The kitchens are fit for a gourmet, with generous over-height cabinetry with shaker-style doors, quartz countertops, a coordinating ceramic tile backsplash and stainless-steel appliances. Recessed pot and under-cabinet lighting perfectly illuminate your tasks. Wide-plank laminate wood flooring is featured throughout the main living areas, along with plush carpeting in the bedrooms and ceramic tile flooring in the bathrooms. Ensuite bathrooms feature their own quartz countertops, along with custom vanities with shaker-style cabinetry. The ensuite also holds a glass shower enclosure with a designer ceramic tile surround, while the main bathroom has a soaker tub as well as a modern ceramic tile tub surround. Full-width mirrors and polished chrome lighting prepare you to greet the day or wind down after a busy week. “We have a great upgrade package, so buyers can customize their home,” says Jorgenson. “People who register with us now can pre-select their home, choose their colour scheme and their lot. And with a location like this in West Maple Ridge, there’s really never been a better time to make that decision.” Homes start at $599,900. For more information and to pre-register, visit www. liveatvillagewalk.com or call 604-465-6524.

with Derrick Sims

Q. How do I make my home stand out in the market without spending much money? A. If you want to get offers from buyers, make a great first impression by improving these potential turn-offs: • Messy Landscaping: Buyers are looking for curb appeal. Take the time to clean up an overgrown yard. • Nasty Odors: You may not smell some odors in your home because you’ve become desensitized to them. Ask your REALTOR® if there are odors (smoke, pet odors) and how you can get rid of them. • Too Much Clutter: Pack away any items like excess furniture, personal pictures and nick-knacks. They make your rooms look smaller and distract the buyer from really seeing the house itself. • Old Paint: A fresh coat of neutral-coloured paint is a low-cost way to make your rooms look new and fresh.

PETER, DOROTHEA APRIL 13, 1923 - JANUARY 23, 2014 Dorothea Jean (Tuck) Peter was born April 13, 1923 on her family’s dairy farm in Grey Township, Huron County, Ontario. Her early childhood experiences on the farm gave her a life-long love for animals and nature. When she was ten years old – over a terrible 8-month period – the barn burned, and both her grandmother Catherine (Schwendiman) Tuck and her mother Alice (Griffin) Tuck died. Dorothea’s father Fred Tuck remarried in 1934. Sadly, the farm was lost soon after, and Fred had to travel to find work for several years. Dorothea’s teenage years were spent in the care of her aunts and uncles during this period. Her father eventually relocated to Haileybury, and it was there that Dorothea met her future husband Robert Peter. After high school, Dorothea worked in Toronto and later in Brantford, until she joined the Canadian Women’s Army Corps in 1943. She was posted to Camp Borden. When WWII ended in 1945, Bob Peter returned from four years with the army in Europe. Dorothea obtained a discharge and the two were married. Dorothea and Bob lived in Timmins in their early years together, where Bob worked in mining. They had two daughters in Timmins, Susan and Elizabeth, and then moved to South Porcupine where son Ian was born. Dorothea and Bob moved for work many times – to Elliot Lake, ON; Toquepala, Peru; Guelph, ON; Matagami, QC; and Bowmanville, ON. They lost their oldest daughter Susan in a tragic plane crash in Matagami in 1967. When Bob retired in 1986, they moved to White Rock, BC, and after Bob’s death in 1994, Dorothea moved to Thunder Bay, ON to be with her grandchildren. By 2009, Thunder Bay winters were becoming too much for her, so she returned to the milder climate of White Rock, and lived there until she passed away on January 23, 2014 with her family by her side, after a brief struggle with cancer. Despite time, distance, and in later years a hand tremor that prevented her from writing, Dorothea maintained a wide network of family and friends that she cared for deeply. She was a loving mother and grandmother. As the family historian, she kept alive a rich written and oral history of our family tree. She loved horses, good food, reading, walking outdoors, and music. A talented and creative individual, she was a good painter and wonderful cook. Dorothea was a devout Anglican, active in the church wherever she lived. She never outgrew her farming roots. She is survived by her sister Nancy McColl (Campbellford, ON), cousin Lloyd Saunders (Mississauga, ON), daughter Elizabeth Peter and sonin-law David Dyer (White Rock, BC), son Ian Peter and daughter-in-law Kathy Thomas (Chilliwack, BC), grandson Graham Peter (Chilliwack, BC), grandson Russell Peter and wife Meghan McAughey (Winnipeg, MB), nieces Jackie Cullion (Windsor, ON) and Arlene Dowdall (Frankford, ON), and nephew Daryl McColl (Campbellford, ON). Cremation has taken place, and a celebration of her life is scheduled on her birthday at Elizabeth’s in White Rock. She will be buried with her beloved Tuck family in Clifford, ON. Donations in Dorothea’s memory may be made to the Anglican Church Council of the North, the BC Cancer Foundation or the Thunder Bay and District Humane Society.

Following graduation, Joan successfully completed nurses training at the General Hospital in Calgary in 1954. That same year she met and married Tom Donnelly. After 42 years of marriage, Tom died suddenly in White Rock, BC and Joan returned to Southern Alberta, where she has lived ever since. Joan is survived by her children; Rick (Karen), Patti, Donna (Rick), and Cathy; 11 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her much loved sister-in-law Kathleen (Rick) Neild, and brother-inlaw Jim (Barb) Donnelly. A special thank you to all who assisted Joan throughout her final battles with cancer.

Finding a Comfort-able Balance Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, pie and ice cream. We all crave comfort foods like these at this time of year. They’re not always the most healthful foods, though. How do we enjoy them without worrying? The key is balance. Follow our go-to 80/20 rule: 80 percent of the time eat a healthy, predominantly plant-based diet (filling half of your plate with fruits and vegetables) then 20 percent of the time don’t stress about going for less-healthy favourites. Test this out during a Friday “Fright” night, where you take the focus off of health and relax with friends and family (or in your jammies with your cat) by indulging in end-of-the-week comfort-food treats. Although we’re here to help you achieve your healthy-eating goals, we understand the need for balance, too. Be okay with letting loose once a week to relax and decompress with good food. You can always get back on track the next day. 2013 - 2014 Awards. Your loyalty has helped Choices achieve these awards. Thank you!
