Broken nose, loose teeth among injuries suffered in ‘unprovoked’ attack

Bus driver injured in Newton assault Sheila Reynolds Black Press

A bus driver was punched and had his nose broken by a passenger during an unprovoked attack in Surrey on Wednesday evening. Transit Police say the incident happened around 8 p.m., after the driver picked up a man and woman at 72 Avenue and 132 Street in Newton. The man was agitated as he boarded the bus, complaining about not being able to

smoke and asking for a free ride. The driver, say police, asked the pair to sit down and carried on with his route toward Guildford. According to police, the man then started “verbally challenging” the transit worker, who did not respond, and as the bus pulled into the left-turn lane at 72 Avenue and 144 Street, the male passenger stood up and punched the driver in the face. He and the woman then fled the scene. The driver was taken to hospital and

treated for a broken nose. The assault also left him with blurred vision in one eye, a bruised jaw and loose teeth. The suspect is described as a clean-shaven, muscular white male in his mid-20s to early30s, standing between six-foot-two and sixfoot-four, with short bleached-blond hair and a large tattoo on the back of his neck. He was wearing a black leather jacket with a grey or white hoodie underneath, jeans and light-coloured runners.

His companion is described as a thin white woman in her mid-twenties, with blond hair. The incident brings to 42 the number of reported driver assaults this year. Monday, Transit Police launched a campaign called “Don’t Touch The Operator,” but union leaders say it doesn’t go far enough. Drivers and supporters staged a rally outside of the New Westminster headquarters, calling for more security and stiffer penalties for assaults.

Designated site at athletic park ‘a stepping stone’ to bigger projects

South Surrey paves way for new longboarders Nick Greenizan Staff Reporter

A designated site for longboarders will be built at South Surrey Athletic Park, the City of Surrey has announced. The site, part of a pilot project, will be located on the “service access road” that begins near the 20 Avenue parking lot and runs south between the baseball diamonds and running track, which is in the southwest corner of the 14600 20 Ave. park.

Surrey’s manager of parks, Owen Croy, estimated the grade of the pathway to be “about 6.5 per cent,” and especially good for boarders who are new to the sport. The location’s proximity to public transit is also noted. The city is to add barriers on either side of the pathway – which is already paved – to ensure it does not intersect with any other walking paths in the area, Croy said. Appropriate signage will also be posted.

He estimated the cost of the project to be “a few thousand dollars” and said he would “like to get it up and running in the next six weeks,” though he added that timeline is not definite. “It’s a work in progress, but it engages youth, and we think it’s an excellent way to get (young longboarders) off the streets, where there are safety concerns.” Croy believes the longboarding project would be the first of its kind in B.C.

Longboarding – similar to skateboarding, except the board’s dimensions and wheels are bigger – has become a popular sport on the Peninsula in recent years. And with its growth in popularity has come increased concerns about the safety of boarders, pedestrians and motorists. “It’s very unfortunate but there have been some tragic incidents in other places in recent years,” he said. i see page 4

Punching holes in province’s recycling plan

Penguin Meat Supply Specials Effective Wednesday, April 2 - Saturday, April 5

Taking issue with MMBC Kelvin McCulloch

A

Special to the Peace Arch News

few months back, I had to declare whether Buckerfields was a ‘producer’ of printed paper or packaging material. If so, we would have to implement an ‘approved stewardship plan.’ Otherwise, we would have to join another ‘stewardship plan’ and pay fees. I thought it was a scam. But I looked into it further and determined that there was indeed provisions in effect and according to the regulations, Buckerfields is now a ‘producer’ of printed paper and packaging material. I discussed the alternatives with a Ministry of Environment official and came to realize that we had no choice but to join the only approved stewardship plan in the province, Multi Material B.C. We signed the contract. But we also read it. It stated that MMBC had to file audited financial statements on its website. I recently went there and no such statements exist. Now I have discovered: Q MMBC is a corporation under the Societies Act comprised of three directors, two of which live in Ontario; Q MMBC is only accountable to the Registrar of Companies; Q MMBC is not governed by the province’s rules for the administration of all public monies; Q none of the monies collected by MMBC go to any government organization; Q MMBC is not subject to oversight by the auditor general of B.C.; Q under its ‘stewardship plan’, MMBC has the authority to charge companies unlimited fees based on whatever MMBC spends, regardless of what the actual costs; Q municipal governments do not know the background of MMBC and don’t yet realize the fees charged amount to double taxation;

White Rock

Q the provincial government did not consult with municipal governments or the public. Until it is resolved, we are being taxed twice for the same service; Q taxpayers and voters are unaware that the fees being charged by MMBC are so onerous that they will cause newspaper closures and job losses of 300-500 in the newspaper industry in B.C. My position is, we ain’t paying a dime to MMBC and neither should anyone else, until: Q the provincial government reconciles what it is doing so that taxpayers don’t pay twice; Q the provincial government takes back the legislation which ‘blames us’ for choices made by manufacturers that are completely outside of our control. Q any monies charged under the auspices of the Recyling Regulation are included in the public accounts of the province and subject to the provisions of the Financial Administration Act and the Auditor General Act. Q whatever is going to be done is introduced into the Legislative Assembly so that the proper public debate can occur; Q there is an independent public inquiry into the financial operations, sources and uses of funds, contractual procedures and expenditures of MMBC. Ninety-six per cent of all printed paper and packaging material is already being picked up or deposited into municipally financed facilities. Despite what MMBC is saying, at least 53 per cent of that is already being recycled. In reality, there is no basis for setting up a recycling dictatorship and charging punitive fees to companies. We don’t have to change a thing to see recycling take off in B.C. We need to send the MMBC regime to the recycle bin.

Candidates will have to register, report donations

Disclosure rules on way for local elections Tom Fletcher Black Press

Candidates for municipal and school board elections will have to register with Elections BC and report donations of $50 or more when they run in province-wide elections this November. Legislation tabled by the B.C. government Wednesday will extend the term of office to four years as well as tightening rules for campaign financing and advertising. Third-party advertisers will also have to register before promoting candidates, and

financial disclosures will have to be filed with Elections BC within 90 days of the vote.   Community, Sport and Cultural Development Minister Coralee Oakes said the new rules have been developed in consultation with the Union of B.C. Municipalities, and that discussion determined that an outright ban on anonymous donations is too strict. The disclosure rule will also apply to thirdparty advertisers, who will have to report sources of donations more than $50 and identify themselves in advertising. Campaign spending limits won’t be imposed

until after the elections scheduled for Nov. 15, 2014. Oakes said that measure is complex because the variety of local governments in B.C. is the widest in Canada, including large and small communities, regional districts, school boards, park boards and the Islands Trust that governs the Gulf Islands. The legislation also moves the date of local elections from November to October, but that won’t take effect until 2018. UBCM president Rhona Martin, a director of the Columbia Shuswap Regional District,

said the move to four-year terms is not a “perfect solution,” but it was supported by a majority of delegates at last year’s convention. In previous votes, some small community representatives said even three-year terms may be too long for a time-consuming commitment with little pay. The change in reporting rules creates a large task of compliance for Elections BC. Oakes said the Elections BC will present its proposed costs to the legislature committee that determines budgets for all independent officers, including the auditor general.

$1-million lotto prize

Healthy win for 17 co-workers Pooling their money together for a Lotto Max ticket has paid off for a handful of Surrey healthcare workers. The 17 co-workers will share in a $1-million MaxMillion prize, won in the March 14 draw. Each will receive $58,823.17. The ticket was purchased in South Surrey, at the Mac’s convenience store at 160 Street and King George Boulevard – a different purchase location than usual. “I was busy running kids around to Scouts and Girl Guides so I stopped at my neighborhood Mac’s instead of where I usually go,” said Irene Wong, representing the winners as trustee. “This is a true case of ‘right place, right time.’” Wong did not check the ticket until a week after the draw, when she fed it through a self-checker “around 10 times” before believing it was a winner. When she got home, she began calling her co-workers, many of whom didn’t believe her. “I had to bring the slip into work the next day to prove to them I wasn’t lying,” she said. The winner of the March 14 $50-million Lotto Max jackpot has yet to come forward. – Black Press

Apartment plans for White Rock hilltop site to be unveiled

Public meeting planned for Oxford Street towers Alex Browne Staff Reporter

A public meeting next week will give area residents a first chance to see plans and drawings for two apartment towers proposed for the White Rock hilltop at Oxford Street. The meeting, April 9 at 5:30 p.m. at First United Church (15385 Semiahmoo Ave.) will provide a look at detailed plans for The Oxford – at 1454 Oxford St. – prepared by Chris Dikeakos Architects on behalf of Richmond-based Elegant Development Inc. Current plans call for a 24-storey tower and a 21-storey tower, providing a total of 124 luxury apartments. The site is a 2.7-acre parcel to this point

owned by water utility Epcor, adjacent to Epcor’s newly redeveloped pump station, chlorination and water-treatment facility. The development is subject to the city rezoning the land from its institutional use, said Mark Sager of Sager LLP, representing the project. “There’s no fixed timeline for this – it’s entirely at the discretion of council,” Sager said, adding that the rationale for the current tower configuration is the preservation of a one-acre stand of mature trees. Initial informal presentations on the project and potential change in land use were held on Jan. 23 and Feb. 20 he said, and the message from public feedback – particularly at the first meeting, attended by around 90

people – was loud and clear. “We asked people what their concerns were about the change in land use, and they said ‘please save as much of the treed area as possible’,” Sager said. The area in question, he said “looks like a park, but it’s not – it’s zoned for a public utility.” As a result of the feedback, the company has moved away from a lower, more squat – and more easily developable – building concept, Sager said. “(They’ve) decided to go to higher buildings with a much lower density,” he said. “It would be around 60 units per building and larger units – this allows for all of the trees to be retained and the (treed) area to be dedi-

cated to the city as a park.” Sager said the first informal meeting on the proposal indicated that it was “better received than one might expect.” “There were about 17 to 20 people who were opposed to everything, but the balance presented input and a lot of different views,” he said. “An issue I’ve heard a lot is that (the proposal) offers a chance to improve the municipal tax base, which is not what one commonly hears about a proposal of this kind.” He said the April 9 meeting will provide “lots of opportunity for the public to ask questions and look at floor plans, drawings and elevations.”

We have this opportunity to show the city that this is something they should allocate some of their budget for in the future.” The pilot project will be monitored over the summer, and if deemed a success, the city would be open to creating more sites where the activity would be permitted. In White Rock, longboarding is prohibited in the city, while skateboarding is banned within an area bounded by Oxford Street to the west, North Bluff Road to the north, Best Street to the east and Buena Vista Avenue to the south. Last spring, local longboarders asked White Rock to review its bylaw. Consideration was deferred to this year.

Bait-car program credited for drop in crime

Auto thefts declining: RCMP Jeff Nagel Black Press

Car thefts in the Lower Mainland have fallen 78 per cent in the past decade and police are crediting the bait-car program for much of that drop. The latest statistics show an eight per cent drop from 5,200 vehicles stolen in the region in 2012 to 4,700 last year. In contrast, more than 21,000 cars were stolen in 2003 – a year before the first use in B.C. of vehicles implanted with cameras and technology to safely disable them as officers converge to catch thieves red-handed. ICBC road safety director John Dickinson said the payoff in reduced auto insurance claims has been dramatic. ICBC handled $98 million in stolen auto claims in 2003, when an average of 70 cars were stolen every day in B.C. By 2013 that had dropped to $27 million claims, or 17 stolen vehicles per day. Justice Minister Suzanne Anton said the number of vehicles not stolen last year – compared to 2003 –  was equivalent to filling B.C.’s largest ferry with vehicles 40 times over. The single biggest 10-year decreases in car theft have been recorded in Coquitlam (down 88 per cent from 2003), White Rock (down 87 per cent) and Burnaby and New Westminster (both down 86 per cent). The bait-car program, run by the Integrated Municipal Provincial Auto Crime Team (IMPACT) has since expanded to include

The bait-car program is being credited with a drop in car thefts. boats, ATVs, snowmobiles, trailers and other “bait property.” Theft from autos have also declined about 68 per cent in B.C. over the last decade. Insp. Peter Jadis, the head of IMPACT, said the team’s officers are now targeting larger-scale auto rings that are running chop shops and in some cases simply stealing cars for the value of the metal. That’s a shift from past years where thieves were often out to joy ride or commit break-andenters using stolen vehicles. “A car can be reduced to $200 to $300 worth of recycled metal,” Jadis said. “That’s something fairly new we’re seeing.” Police say the items most often stolen from vehicles are: smartphones; other personal electronics like tablets, laptops and GPS units; work tools; credit cards and identification; stereo equipment;

cash and change; car parts and accessories; garage-door openers; sunglasses; and keys. Thieves who snatch garage-door openers from a vehicle and get the home address from vehicle registration continue to be a concern. Keys stolen from clothing in gyms and rec centres are also a way thieves can get into cars and bypass immobilizers. The most frequently stolen vehicles in Metro Vancouver last year were older model Honda Civics or Accords and Dodge/Plymouth/ Chrysler Caravan/Voyageurs. Ford F-series pickup trucks (20052006) were among the most targeted vehicles in the Fraser Valley, behind 1998-2000 Honda Civics. Police also issued a new annual list of top 10 most wanted car thieves in B.C. Friday – view a slideshow of them at peacearchnews.com

No need for secrecy

T

he high degree of secrecy surrounding what is transported through the Lower Mainland by rail is completely unnecessary. It also could, in theory, prevent emergency officials from responding properly in the unlikely scenario of a derailment or spill. Rail transportation – long a contentious issue on the Semiahmoo Peninsula – is one of the safest means around, given the fact that railway companies control their own lines and use a high degree of sophisticated approaches to managing rail traffic. There are virtually no head-on collisions, tracks are maintained to very high standards and those who operate and oversee trains must follow myriad rules and procedures. However, rail companies’ insistence that local fire chiefs and emergency providers sign nondisclosure agreements to even get access to what they have hauled in the previous year is overly secretive, and this is not even up-to-date information. Transport Canada issued a directive after the July 2013 Lac-Megantic disaster, stating that rail companies must provide information to municipalities about dangerous goods on a “yearly aggregate basis”and also supply information about “any significant  change… as soon as (possible).” It didn’t say the information had to be kept secret. Rail companies say that disclosing what is hauled to the public would compromise security. While this hasn’t been spelled out in detail, presumably they feel this information would aid terrorists or others with ulterior motives. While this is unlikely, it isn’t impossible. A terror attack on a passenger train in Ontario was planned in recent years. The types of goods being transported through any particular city by rail are easily known, simply by consulting the list of placards which must be displayed on hazardous cargoes, hauled by rail or road. There is no need for secrecy. The most important point is that fire departments and other emergency officials must be fully prepared to quickly deal with whatever could happen along the rail lines. That means there needs to be good communication, current information and transparency by rail companies. The public should not be kept in the dark about what goods are hauled by rail, because it is their lives and property that are equally at risk in the event of any derailment or spill. Rather than being secretive, railways need to be open and transparent with the public – ultimately, their customers.

against farmland has no effect on Site C. Steves is also concerned about second homes being built beyond Hope, and later sold rather than being destroyed, as is the current disastrous rule. He warns that farmers might end up with “nonfarm neighbours,” or as we like to call them up north, “neighbours.” Again, this is an urban problem projected onto rural B.C., where costly restrictions mainly serve to accelerate the depopulation of rural and remote areas. Delta South independent MLA Vicki Huntington is livid about the legislation, which has no effect on loss of farmland in her constituency. The growing federally regulated port supersedes provincial laws, and the Tsawwassen First Nation is growing a big shopping centre on its treaty land. Aboriginal entrepreneurs are also starting to force big-box development on southern Vancouver Island, home of the purest of the pure left. This is where farmers can’t even protect themselves against deer.  The most damning charge is that the six regional ALR panels now in place are open to corruption under new rules. Panel members have always been cabinet appointments, but currently they have to be from outside the region so they are less likely to hand out exemptions to their friends. That is certainly something to keep an eye on. So is the status of B.C. farms, where the average farmer age is 56 and rising, and half of farms have income of less than $10,000 a year.

Councillor’s views clearer Editor: Re: Green machine gathers here, not there, March 18 column. It is revealing to contrast the views of late White Rock councillor Larry Robinson and your man in Victoria, Tom Fletcher. I did not know Robinson, but his reputation is that he was always respectful of others’ opinions, and he always sought the middle ground. Unlike Fletcher. The title of his rant led me to think that Fletcher was mellowing. Nothing, of course, could be further from the truth. A very telling comment, “I’ve written before about the distortions and evasions required to present such a fossil-fuel fairy tale,” could, in fact, describe his column. Achieving the height of silliness, he protests that you don’t see protesters in places like Libya and Saudi Arabia. Tom, people in those countries would be killed by the authorities for protesting against government policy. Is that what you are recommending? If my grandson, Kian, ever asks me how to communicate clearly and accurately with anyone, I will point him towards Robinson rather than Fletcher. William Bell, White Rock

operating actions and five-round magazines as other hunting rifles. But to people uninformed about how firearms actually work, they look scary; b) these firearms have, in the decade or so since they have been in Canada, been used as hunting and range rifles and have been involved in zero crimes or accidents, to my knowledge. Minister Blaney, the officials doing, recommending or covering up these things shouldn’t even have jobs. If you listen to their advice, you shouldn’t. David Danylyshyn, Surrey

Editor: I am a little surprised at the lack of earthquake-survival kits available in Surrey. I recently saw a TV news program stating how unprepared we are in the event of a quake. BCAA showed a kit that you were given an opportunity to win. Inspired by this, I went to a BCAA centre to try to purchase a kit but was told they don’t sell them and had no idea where to get one.

In view of the seriousness of earthquake threats in this region, wouldn’t you think that they would be readily available at a variety of locations, such as supermarkets, Home Depot, Rona, etc? Monika Edmunds, Surrey

Train horns easy to quell Editor: I know a simple and inexpensive way to stop the trains blasting their horns at night through Crescent Beach and White Rock, and the trains from Blaine back. Instead of the City of White Rock spending $10 million to make changes that will not stop the trainhorn blasts, BNSF can be made to use one of their trucks with rail wheels and their police officer to pilot and clear the way for all their trains from 11 p.m. to 8 a.m., 500 feet in front of the trains and the engineers would not be allowed to blast their horns through the night. They have the equipment and the staff already employed to do this. This is a simple and instant procedure. Robert Melynchuk, Surrey

Firearms advice misfires Editor: An open letter to Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney and MP Russ Hiebert. I write regarding some recent examples of – to phrase it gently – poor decision-making skills on the part of some elements of your government’s police and firearms administration. They are, in no order: 1. News reports now indicate that when the RCMP broke into hundreds of houses in High River, Alta., and seized firearms, a) there was no longer any sort of “potential danger-to-civilian” emergency going on, and b) they had evidently used copies of the useless and expensive long-gun registry, which your government had told us was destroyed; and, 2. Your otherwise laudable tough-on-crime agenda brought with it some odd, unintended consequences. You should know that if a citizen misplaces documents for restricted firearms, that is listed for a mandatory minimum prison sentence. What happens when the government misplaces the documents for those same firearms? 3. Some of your senior officers recently decided – based on no event whatsoever – to reclassify an imported Swiss rifle from “unrestricted” to “prohibited.” Do bear in mind, a) that these now-reclassified, very expensive rifles use identical ammunition,

Focus on financial savings is the wrong way to value Surrey schools’ extended spring break, says letter-writer.

More to school break than money Editor: Re: Two-week break to stay, March 27. $1.43 per pupil per day? Is that really how much we saved? Your article reported, “The extra spring break days add up to a savings of at least $500,000 for the school district.” That might be impressive until we see that the Surrey

Schools website states that “more than 70,000 students returned to school on Sept. 3, 2013”. That works out to a savings of $1.43 per student for each of the five days of the extended break. The extended spring break is a wonderful break for our students and our teachers, but let’s not allow its value to be based on its purported savings. K. Johnson, Surrey

FUTURE SHOP – Correction Notice

Hospital upgrades coming

More power for PAH Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Plans are in the works to increase Peace Arch Hospital’s emergency-generator capacity. According to a City of White Rock staff report, the work is to meet Canadian Standards Association requirements for power supply and electrical safety in health-care facilities, as the existing space does not have room to accommodate additional generators and new seismic-upgrade standards. Fraser Health initially sought a variance that would allow the 15521 Russell Ave. facility – eyed for a 54-stall parking lot on the hospital’s south side – to be built closer to area homes than city bylaws allowed, prompting residents who attended a public

information meeting earlier this year to cite noise and proximity as among concerns regarding the planned generator building and exhaust stack. Council, meeting as the land-use and planning committee, voted unanimously (with Coun. Al Campbell absent) in February to reject those plans and refer the application back to staff.. City manager Dan Bottrill said that the health authority has since withdrawn the variance applicationt. He added that noise concerns – staff had described planned weekly testing of the generator as “the equivalent of a gas lawn mower at a 100-foot distance” – “should be alleviated” as a result. Bottrill did not know a timeline for the project.

So far, the petition has more than 340 supporters. “The federal government is

Serious burns for Surrey man

Truck fire ‘unusual’ Aaron Orlando Black Press

A Surrey man suffered serious burns to the lower half of his body after a fire broke out in the cab of the tractor-trailer he was travelling in. Revelstoke RCMP Cpl. Thomas Blakney said emergency crews were alerted to the incident – which occurred about 10 kilometres east of Revelstoke on the Trans-Canada Highway – just after midnight Friday. When they arrived, the tractor was fully engulfed and the 29-year-old driver and 32-year-old passenger, both from Surrey, were already out of

the truck. The driver suffered minor burns and cuts. The more seriously injured passenger was treated at Queen Victoria Hospital in Revelstoke before being transported to the burn unit at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops. He is listed in stable condition, police said. The truck was travelling down the highway when the fire broke out. After bringing it to a stop, the driver had to help the passenger out of the cab. Blakney said police don’t know what caused the sudden fire. He described the incident as “very unusual.� Investigation is ongoing.

Temporary closure for Jimmy Flynn’s Celtic Snug

Four-day penalty for pub A four-day closure that kept patrons out of Jimmy Flynn’s Celtic Snug on White Rock’s West Beach last week was a delayed hangover – from the St. Patrick’s Day before last. General manager Jeff Eley said the restaurant was closed from March 22 to 26 due to a penalty from the B.C. Liquor Control and Licensing Branch for overcrowding on March 17, 2013. “We were overcrowded by about 11 people, and after it all got straightened out, we had the four days,� he said, noting that the restaurant has no record of other infractions. “That’s why we did the tents for St.

Paddy’s this year – we were able to serve two or three times the people and stay within licensing regulations.� The restaurant has a ‘food primary’ license for 55 patrons inside and 12 on the outdoor patio, according to licensing branch information. Eley said the restaurant took the closure as an opportunity to spiff up the premises. “We repainted and touched up the place,� he said. “And all the staff needed a break, anyway – we’re normally going 364 days a year. It all got good.� – Alex Browne

Rev. Joan McMurty steps down after 12 years at First United Church

‘Time to retire’ after 38 years of service Sarah Massah

I

Staff Reporter

t’s hard to imagine the average 23-yearold woman deciding to devote her life to her faith and her God. But anyone who knows Rev. Joan McMurtry would likely admit that she is far from average. And, after 38 years of service as a minister – including more than a decade at First United Church in White Rock – McMurtry retired her post on March 30, with Rev. Bruce McAndless-Davis to take her place. “I sort of feel finished with this part of my life,” she said last week as she prepared for her successor to take over April 1. “I’ve been happy here, I feel I’ve been productive. I’ve felt very alive in my ministry. And it’s time to retire.” McMurtry’s intuition was what first brought her into the church. After growing up with a minister ❝I’ve been happy as a father, the then-college student here, I feel I’ve been productive. in Saskatchewan in 1976 I’ve felt very alive decided to follow in his in my ministry. And footsteps. it’s time to retire.❞ “I always had planned on being a high-school teacher, but I got a bit disillusioned with that when I was in high school,” the 62-year-old laughed. “I didn’t really know any women ministers (growing up) so it wasn’t really big on my horizon. But I think it was when I was in university, a number of things came together – both my faith, my sense of calling by God, my interest in people and community and some of my leadership skills – and it just began to make sense. “When I entered theology school I was the only female in my class.” Being one of few women ministers at the time, McMurtry was a pioneer of a more progressive and welcoming take on Christianity. She noted that her experience fighting discrimination as a female minister helped shape the way she connected with her congregations, whether it was in rural Saskatchewan or here in White Rock, when she took over in 2002. “I was looking for a congregation that was looking to connect more with the community and was looking for someone with a more open and progressive approach to Christianity,” she said. “Even today, 90 per cent of the Christian community wouldn’t

So That progressive approach, she noted, 38 years later, I’m still representing a new way includes an open policy to the gay and understanding of being Christian. One community. that takes the Bible seriously, but not literally.” “We’ve done weddings, baptisms and

that – combined with our commitment to people on lower-income – makes us a very vital and rich congregation,” she said. Since taking over the post, McMurtry’s dedication to those who are “living on the edge” of the poverty line – and those who are below it – has been an integral part of her work. “We’ve really become a place here where that compassion and justice is lived out. It’s been costly to the congregation to do some of the programming that we’ve done, we’ve put significant energy into that,” she said. Two of the many programs and services the church has offered have been the weekly community dinners, which are open to all, and the cold-weather shelter program, McMurtry said. And like many of the programs she started, now the minister is able to take a back seat, thanks to the dedication of members of her congregation. “A lot of the programs going on now are not run by me, they are run by individuals and groups of people who caught the passion,” she said. “They are pretty selfsufficient. They don’t rely on me but I was able to support and nurture their ideas and programs.” McMurtry added that her latest project – a divisive proposal to redevelop the church property and potentially include four storeys of affordable housing – is still in the early stages. She noted that after she is retired, she will be on the sidelines. “I’ll still live in the community and will stay in the community and stay involved, but I’m not sure in what capacity,” she said. “It’s been my life pattern to be connected with the community and community organizations. That passion is really strong in me.”

Votes needed for family to win wheelchair-accessible vehicle

Call out to the community Jennifer Lang Black Press

A Cloverdale family is hoping community support will help them win a wheelchair-accessible vehicle. Bobbi and Gary Taylor entered the 2014 National Mobility Month Local Hero contest to assist them with the transportation needs of their four-year-old son, Kenny. Kenny is the youngest of the Taylors’ four children, and one of three who have special needs. Son Joe, 9, is on the autism spectrum. Daughter Kristen, 8, has been deaf since birth, and also has an autism diagnosis, Bobbi says. She describes six-year-old Courtney as “our little spitfire.” Kenny was born premature and has a range of physical and developmental delays – an “alphabet soup of diagnoses,” Photo courtesy Picture Perfect Moments Photography says Bobbi.

Set in the corporate offices of the World Wide Wicket Company, the tuneful (“I Believe In You”, “A Secretary Is Not A Toy”), stilltimely satire of the business world follows the fortunes of window-washer J.

Biggley (Peter Soda), with help from secretary Rosemary Pilkington (Cassidy Johnson). Also featured in the production are Rachel Fournier as fellow office worker Smitty and Emma Schellenberg as blond bombshell Hedy LaRue. How To Succeed... is directed by EMS performing arts department head Candace Radcliffe, with the clever Frank Loesser score in the capable hands of orchestra director Rodger Owens and vocal director Bev Schellenberg, and choreography by Carol Seitz.

Moonlight, Magnolias Gone With The Wind (1939), starring Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh, is now considered one of the most celebrated productions of the golden era of Hollywood. But few knew that David O. Selznick’s risky venture of filming the Margaret Mitchell bestseller came close to being a total disaster. White Rock Players Club’s latest production, Moonlight and Magnolias by Ron Hutchinson (Coast Capital Playhouse, 1532 Johnston Rd., April 2-19), directed by Ryan Mooney relates an exclusive – and hilarious – behind-the-scenes view of a movie in trouble. With filming already underway, Selznick (Fred Partridge) fires original director George Cukor

and abandons the existing adaptation. Pulling strings to get director Victor Fleming (Ryan Johnson) reassigned from megaphoning Munchkins for The Wizard of Oz, he then locks Fleming, himself and ace screenwriter/script doctor Ben Hecht (Paul Ferancik) in a hotel room for five days in a desperate attempt to create a new shooting script, with the aid only of bananas, peanuts and loyal secretary Miss Poppenghul (Laine Henderson). Costume design is by Laura McKenzie, with set by Tim Driscoll and props by Naomi Mitchell and Rosemary Schuster. Performances are at 8 p.m. with a 2:30 p.m. matinee Sunday, April 13. For tickets ($18, $16 students, seniors and Coast Capital Savings members), call 604-536-7535, or visit www.whiterockplayers.ca

Elgin Park Players bring J.M. Barrie book to life

Peter Pan on stage

Tuesday April 1, 2014 Peace Peace Arch Arch News News

CROSSWORD

Put Some Swing in your Step

PUZZLE NO. 699

Alex Browne Arts Reporter

One of the most ambitious productions by the Elgin Park Players this year is also a student-directed show. Peter Pan and Wendy, by Doug Rand, based on the novel by J.M. Barrie, will be on stage all this week (April 1-5), with performances at 7 p.m. and a matinee Saturday, April 5 at noon at Elgin Park Secondary, 13484 24 Ave. The elaborately costumed show – with Grade 9 student Ethan Donnelly ably embodying Peter – follows in the Elgin Park tradition of giving students a learning opportunity by producing and staging a major production themselves. Directed by Grade 12s Cassidy Poulton, Demi Montes and Morgan Phillips, with guidance from interim drama department head Sheena Johnson, the show is a colourful version of Barrie’s 1904 tale about the boy who never grows up, and his adventures with Wendy (Sophie Stanger) and her siblings John and Michael (Asher Chapman, Zach Gamble) in Neverland. The strong cast also includes Max Kelly as infamous pirate Captain

Hook, Ian Lin and Jamie Reynolds as Mr. and Mrs. Darling, and Bianca Hayashi as Tiger Lily. “It’s one of the best casts we’ve ever had in a school show,” said Phillips. Poulton noted that the aim was to create an atmosphere of professionalism from casting through production. “Being in a play is one of the greatest experiences you can have in school,” she said. Fortunately, they said, they had the help of Donnelly’s father Dean as scenic designer and flying rig technician, while student Emerson Mohr helped oversee most of the technical direction.

Laurent Brossoit makes NHL debut

Getting the call Rick Kupchuk Black Press

Cloverdale’s Laurent Brossoit has been well-travelled this year, and made his NHL debut last week.

After four stops in minor league cities, Cloverdale’s Laurent Brossoit finally made the one he wanted. The goaltender was called up to the National Hockey League (NHL) by the Edmonton Oilers last week on an emergency basis after Viktor Fasth was injured in practice. Brossoit was on the bench for last Tuesday night’s game in Edmonton against the visiting San Jose Sharks, backing up starting netminder Ben Scrivens in a 5-2 loss. With Fasth sidelined, Brossoit – who wore jersey No. 1 – stayed with the Oilers through the weekend, though he never saw any game action, though he came close during Edmonton’s game against the highpowered Anaheim Ducks Friday night. Midway through the game, Scrivens went down in the crease, and appeared to be injured, though he stayed in the game. Brossoit was re-assigned to the American Hockey League’s Oklahoma City Barons on Sunday. Brossoit’s stint with the big club was the first time he had dressed for an NHL game, and did so after two stops in the American Hockey League and two more in the ECHL. “A hectic year. I’d never been traded before…if you’d ask me to

define how this year would go, I definitely wouldn’t have thought I’d be on five different teams,” Brossoit told the Edmonton Journal. “Five different jerseys, three different leagues.” Brossoit had been playing for the Oilers’ ECHL affiliate, Bakersfield Condors, where he was putting together a very impressive rookie season. As the starter, he compiled a 19-9-2 (won-loss-overtime loss) record with a 2.20 goals-against average, a .920 save percentage and a league-best seven shutouts. He has been named the ECHL Goalie of the Week three times this season. Brossoit, 21, was drafted in the sixth round by the Calgary Flames in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft while he was with the Edmonton Oil Kings of the Western Hockey League. He turned pro over the summer, playing for the Flames prospects at the Young Stars competition in Penticton in September. He was sent to Calgary’s AHL affiliate, the Abbotsford Heat, to start the season but after two starts was sent to the Alaska Aces of the ECHL. The Oilers acquired Brossoit in November and the netminder was on the move again. He played eight games for Oklahoma City, before starting a four-month stint in Bakersfield.

Handful of squads to play in quarter-finals this weekend

Coastal FC squads advance in hunt for cup titles Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

A number of Coastal FC teams are through to the quarter-finals of the BC Coastal Cup. Ten Peninsula sides – four boys, six girls – were on the pitch last weekend during the ‘B’ tournament’s Round of 16, with six teams winning to advance to the next round. On the girls’ side of the tournament, the Coastal FC U13s defeated the Burnaby Blaze 2-1 Sunday evening at South Surrey Athletic Park, and will now square off this weekend against the North Shore Pegasus in

the next round. At the U15 girls level, Coastal also emerged victorious, shutting out the North Shore Riptide 2-0 to move into the final eight; they’ll face the Chilliwack Attack this weekend. Coastal’s U16 girls also won their game, 2-1 over the Royal City Rampage, and will now face either Chilliwack or Richmond in the next round. Coastal FC’s U17 girls, playing at home Sunday afternoon, advanced with a 3-2 win over the North Shore Vipers.

The South Surrey-White Rock association’s oldest team in cup contention, the U18 Coastal FC Royals, fell by the narrowest of margins in their first-round game, losing 1-0 to Chilliwack Sunday afternoon at Chilliwack’s Exhibition Park. On the boys’ side of the draw, Coastal’s U13 team rolled to an impressive 5-0 shutout win over South Burnaby United, while the club’s U17 boys team also advanced after a 2-1 victory over the North Vancouver Fury Sunday evening. The U17s now move on to face the Van-

Odd

PET COUPLE

couver United Rovers Saturday at Jericho Park in Vancouver. The U16 boys played their first game Monday night, after Peace Arch News’ press deadlines. After quarter-finals this weekend, teams will advance to semifinals April 11-13, with the cup finals set for April 26 and 27. Winners of the Coastal Cup championship – one of the province’s oldest youth soccer trophies – in each age division then move on to battle for the provincial cup later this spring.

Bowling in Far East One of the Semiahmoo Peninsula’s top lawn bowlers was in the Far East last month, testing her skills on one of the sports’ biggest stages. In mid-March, Mary Wright – who also serves as head coach of the White Rock Lawnbowling Club – headed to Kowloon, Hong Kong, joining a Bowls Canada team that competed in the 2014 Tiger Bowls World Invitational tournament. After the Tiger Mary Wright Bowls event, lawn bowler Wright and her teammates headed to Shenzhen, China for the China Open, which ran March 18-21. Wright – a past B.C. and Canadian champion – was chosen for the team during the 2014 Commonwealth Games selection camp in Sarasota, Fla., which took part in late February. “It makes us proud that we have produced, at the White Rock Lawn Bowling Club, a member that is competing at this level,” said club president Rollie Cook.

Frozen Four The Surrey Eagles were well-represented when the NCAA’s men’s Div. 1 hockey championship hit the ice in

the United States last weekend. The two-week tournament – dubbed the Frozen Four – held its regional round last weekend, and a handful of collegiate players with South Surrey ties were front and centre. On the rosters of the 16 schools taking part were former netminder Michael Santaguida and forwards Brady Shaw and Michael Stenerson (Vermont), defenceman Devon Toews (Quinnipiac), forward Brandon Tanev and blue-liner Josh Monk (Providence), and forward Daniel Gentzler, a forward with Colgate. The four teams to advance out of their regional tournaments will compete a the Frozen Four finals in Philadelphia April 10 and 12.

Spring camps Their BC Hockey League season may be over, but the Surrey Eagles’ are already looking forward to the 2014/15 campaign. The team is accepting registrations for its spring prospect camps – set for mid-April – and a few spots still remain for the team’s goaltender camp, April 12. The prospect camps for skaters is set for April 17-20. For information, visit www. surreyeagles.ca or email registration@surreyeagles.ca Later this month, the Eagles will also co-host the Junior ‘B’ Columbia Valley Rockies’ spring camp, April 25-27.

Swimmers nab medals while also winning a silver medal in the 200-m freestyle and a bronze in the 50-m butterfly. Craig Slater, 54, also came home with some gold medals, taking top spot in the 200-m backstroke, 50-m butterfly, 200-m individual medley and 100-m backstroke. Mike Mittermaier, 55, won gold in the 50-m breaststroke, silver in the 100-m breaststroke and bronze in the 50-m and 100-m freestyle. Rounding out the Wave competitors was Tony Peasse, 75, who won silver in four freestyle distances – the 50-, 100-, 200- and 400-m. Next up for members of the Wave are B.C. Masters Swim Championships in Kelowna later this month. – Nick Greenizan
