Eight-storey care facility approved by White Rock council in February

Court asked to topple seniors project Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Residents of a White Rock condo complex unhappy with council’s recent go-ahead for an eight-storey care facility immediately south of their building are asking the courts to quash the bylaw amendment that cleared the way. In a petition filed in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster, Belaire strata president Dennis Andrew Lypka and neighbour George William Holmes also ask for costs, and for a declaration that the developer of the 199-bed project at 1550 Oxford St. – Evergreen Baptist Care Society – be required to apply for a major-development permit. Belaire residents questioned the lack of such a permit from the get-go. According to the petition, coun-

cil violated the city’s Official Community Plan and its procedures bylaw in not requiring the majordevelopment permit. “It is not within the jurisdiction

of council to enact a bylaw which is inconsistent with the relevant Official Community Plan,” it states. The Evergreen project – located immediately north of a site being

eyed for two residential highrises (see sidebar) – has been the subject of much angst since it was announced by Fraser Health last October. Evergreen’s executive

Towers plan becomes hot topic Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

An idea to build two highrises near the top of White Rock’s Oxford Street got mixed, sometimes-heated, reaction Wednesday during a public-information meeting hosted at First United Church. Those in favour of the project – suggested as 21- and 24-storey buildings with nearly an acre of

preserved green space – cited the need to build higher given the limited land in White Rock; a desire to see positive change in the city; and the benefit to the city’s tax base. Opponents – the majority of those who spoke – expressed concern with traffic impact; that it doesn’t fit with the city’s Official Community Plan; and that it is too high. i see page 2

director Stephen Bennet confirmed in February that the plan had been the subject of confidential discussions for about six months prior. Following a public hearing that stretched over two evenings, council voted 4-2 on Feb. 24 to give third and final readings to zoning amendment bylaw No. 2045. Couns. Helen Fathers and Al Campbell voted against the amendment, with Campbell stating he had concerns with the process that was followed. He agreed with opponents that the development will be detrimental to its neighbours. City manager Dan Bottrill said Monday he is unable to comment on the petition, given it is a legal matter. He did say it didn’t come as a surprise, and that the city would be filing its response this week.

Criticism for contrary views i from page 1 “The major concern is definitely over the height,” Mark Sager of Sager LLP, said Thursday of thoughts heard regarding The Oxford. “The second concern would be traffic.” The meeting was the third held regarding plans eyed for the 2.7-acre parcel, which was purchased by the developer from Epcor, the city’s water provider, subject to an OCP change and rezoning. The site is currently designated ‘multi-unit residential/low density’ and zoned for civic/institutional use. For the project to proceed, it needs a designation of ‘multi-unit residential/high density’ and zoning for comprehensive development. The proposal is the second Oxford Street plan to raise residents’ concerns in recent months. The first – for an eight-storey complex-care facility at 1550 Oxford St., immediately north of where proponents are hoping to build the two highrises – received council approval in February. Area residents Barb Attfield and Jeanette Banta were among approximately 150 who attended Wednesday’s meeting. Both said they oppose the project because it goes against the OCP and doesn’t suit the neighbourhood. “We’re hoping that it doesn’t go through,” Banta said, adding she would like to see the city buy the property. Margaret Fraser, who lives on the fourth floor of the 12-storey Belaire – just north of the planned development – said noise and traffic are her biggest concerns with the project. She also feels the height is too much. “It just seems like they take over,” Fraser said as she examined one of more than a dozen display boards outlining the plans. During a brief presentation, Sager and architect Richard Bernstein explained the designs on display were the result of feedback from the two previous meetings, held Jan. 23 and Feb. 20, where tree loss was the major concern heard. Sager noted that the alternative is to build 12-storey buildings, an option that would not preserve the green space.

Garry Wolgemuth said the proposed development goes “against all our bylaws.” Bernstein said the “gently curving” form of the two-building plan will maximize southern and western views from the 124 units – 67 in one building, and 57 in the other, ranging in size from 2,000 to 3,100 square feet. Access would be from Oxford Street, and all parking would be underground. “We’re trying to do something that doesn’t interfere with what’s there,” Bernstein said. During a question-and-answer period, a South Surrey woman who spoke favourably about plans was heckled, as were others. “Excuse me, are you paid by the developer?” one man called out, prompting meeting facilitator Catherine Rockandel to remind attendees to be respectful of others’ opinions – a reminder she repeated a number of times. Another man said he wanted to “compliment the architect on making White Rock look like Brentwood Mall.” One supporter suggested the naysayers “grow up.” Another suggested many opponents “have their own agendas why they don’t want this to go through.” Assurance from proponents that traffic would not be negatively impacted was greeted with laughter and disbelief. Sager said Thursday the next step will be determined after feedback from the public meeting is compiled and reviewed. If the project goes ahead as proposed, Bernstein said each highrise would take about two years to build.

‘Fresh eyes’ called for by health minister, as interim leader named

Ousted Fraser Health chair praises staff Alex Browne & Jeff Nagel Staff Reporter / Black Press

The provincial government suddenly replaced Fraser Health board chair David Mitchell last week, as it continues a probe into budget overruns at B.C.’s biggest health authority. Wynne Powell, longtime chair of the Provincial Health Services Authority, will take over on an interim basis. The move comes more than five months into a strategic and operational review ordered into Fraser Health by the province as a result of its recurring failure to stay within its budget allocations. “We felt it was important to have new leadership on the board – fresh eyes to implement any of the recommendations that come out of this review,” Health Minister Terry Lake said Wednesday of the decision to install Powell. “We’re relying on his abilities to bring about changed management, which will be

necessary with Fraser Health going through this review process.” Mitchell – who served for 3½ years as chair of Fraser’s board – was not available to answer Peace Arch News’ questions on what he had accomplished as chair of Fraser Health, what he still hoped to accomplish and the reasons he had been replaced. A request for an interview was sent to Mitchell’s office at KNV Chartered Accountants in South Surrey, where he has been a partner since 1991. Fraser Health responded with an upbeat written statement from Mitchell that praises health authority staff for being passionate, determined and optimistic “despite operating in challenging circumstances.” In the statement, Mitchell credits their willingness to “confront challenge with innovation and openness to look at doing things differently.” Fraser Health spokesperson Tasleem Juma told PAN that Mitchell had always been a

BIA urges celebration

Banner year for the pier Banners celebrating the 100th anniversary of the White Rock pier will soon adorn each of the city’s business districts. Featuring a historical photo of the pier and the phrase ‘Celebrating 100 Years’, the banners are an initiative of the White Rock Business Improvement Association. Executive director Lyn Hellyar was to share details of the program with White Rock council Monday evening, after Peace Arch News’ press deadline. She told PAN last week that the pier’s milestone anniversary was one the BIA couldn’t simply let pass by. “The BIA thought, we should be celebrating this,” Hellyar said. “We really felt that we needed to celebrate the pier because it’s something really special.” The banners are funded by the BIA and hung by the City of White Rock. Hellyar said a comprehensive banner program is being developed for the city, and discussions around what will be hung a year from now are already underway. – Tracy Holmes

About 40 bus drivers attended Surrey Provincial Court Friday morning for the bail hearing – which was delayed until April 22 – of a Surrey man charged in a vicious, unprovoked attack on a Coast Mountain Bus driver last month. One-and-a-half-year-old Abbigail Hartman and her stepdad, bus driver Brandon McInroy, were among the group, with Abbigail wearing a T-shirt that read: “Please don’t hit my daddy…” The group showed up to court Friday to support their fellow injured transit worker, and McInroy said he and his girlfriend brought the toddler to show that many have families and just want to be safe on the job. Police say at approximately 8 p.m. on March 26, the 341 bus to Guildford picked up a man and woman on 72 Avenue at 132 Street. Within minutes, the man punched the operator in the

face before jumping off the bus. The bus was travelling at approximately 30 km/h and pulling into the left-turn lane at 144 Street at the time of the assault. Despite having received a severe blow to the face which caused broken nose and facial bones, profuse bleeding and impaired vision, the driver managed to bring the bus to a stop and open the doors, allowing the attacker to leave. Nathan Woods, president of Unifor local 111, the union representing transit workers, said Friday he was “absolutely pleased” the accused would remain in custody for the time being. “We’re happy that he’s not going to be standing at a bus stop near here,” said Woods. Driver Mike McMillan said it is important not to focus only on the accused, but others who put transit workers at risk. “We have a lot of people doing the same thing out there,” he said.

Bus driver and Unifor officer Ruth Armstrong said there’s a criminal assault – be it physical or a verbal threat – on drivers every three days. She noted that while the most recent Surrey incident injured the driver only, it could have easily been a passenger who was hurt. “The public should be concerned,” Armstrong said. Coast Mountain has for years considered installing clear plastic shields, but has held back because about half of drivers don’t want to use them due to heat, glare and space concerns. “We don’t need to be behind bars, they (attackers) do,” said driver Shannon Stewart. Sean Tyler Quaye, a tall, muscular man with shortly shorn hair, was arrested by Transit Police officers on April 2 in Newton. Quaye, 25, is charged with driving while prohibited and assault causing bodily harm.

White Rock homeowners may not see as big a jump in property taxes as expected. The bump will be 2.36 per cent – instead of the 3.25 per cent approved in January – provided council approves an amendment to its 2014’18 financial plan. The dip would mean an increase of $70 for the average homeowner (compared to $96), and $25 for the average strata (compared to $35). Council was to consider the change – due to more revenue from new development – after Peace Arch News’ press deadline Monday. – Tracy Holmes

inconsolable.” Nandan faced Sanders’ friends and family in court last month and apologized. Shakib submitted a letter to the judge. Hicks said he believed both were remorseful and showed good prospects for rehabilitation. Outside court, family and friends of Sanders expressed their dissatisfaction with the sentences. “We didn’t get what we wanted, by any stretch,” said Annie Storey, whose son was best buddies with Sanders. “But now it’s time to heal.” Shari Blanthorne, whose family lived for years in the same complex as Sanders, said the murder destroyed the community. “For them to be able to walk away from this at some point, like it never happened, just seems wrong,” she said. With credit for time served, Nandan, who was free on bail until now, has about 5½ years of his sentence remaining, while Shakib, who has been in custody, has about 5¼ remaining. A third man, who cannot be named because he was a young offender at the time of Sanders’ death, pleaded guilty to obstructing justice in the case. His sentencing is to take place today (Tuesday).

Critical thinking

I

f there is an emerging theme to the 2010s, it is that many basic assumptions – no matter how cherished or long-held – are no longer enough to support our decision-making. No matter where we stand on the political spectrum, no matter how pro-environment or pro-industry we are, no matter how trusting of government we feel or devoted to the rights of the individual we want to be, we are challenged to sift and examine facts, to consider carefully the sources of our information, and reject propaganda and spin, no matter whether from ‘pro-’ or ‘anti-’ forces. We are faced by issues of such magnitude, whether globally (the effect of carbon emissions on the atmosphere, the spread of radioactive contamination from Fukushima, for example) – or locally (the presumed and actual support of the Northern Gateway pipeline or the expansion of the Fraser-Surrey Docks coal port), that we can’t afford to trust the old simplistic, assumptionbased arguments anymore. Even the issue of whether to build upwards in White Rock and South Surrey is far more complex than impassioned ‘NIMBY’ or ‘business-will-benefit-the-community’ statements would like to make it. The downside of the information explosion of the past few decades has been information overload – and this has not been ignored by those, whatever their political stripe, who have motives to coax us in one direction or another. Pseudo-facts can be cobbled from elements of the truth and tailored to fit all our pre-existing assumptions, and the combined result can be promulgated endlessly across the Internet, not just in a matter of hours, but in seconds. Instead of some basic, underlying incontrovertible truth (possibly our most dangerous assumption), we are too often left only with an impression of truth, geared to our emotions and fueled by scads of lobbying dollars. Our responsibility, no matter how we wish to shirk it, is to stay informed and examine, critically, evidence from all sides of the issues. Faced with information overload, the human animal has two basic responses. One is to shut off critical thinking altogether and go with the opinions of whomever we’re told is to be trusted. The other is to dig in the heels and resist, kicking and screaming, any attempt to drag us into the future – no matter how much in our best interests it may be. Neither of these reactions will serve us well in the long run.

That worked well, he said, until Bullock came on the scene and began exercising his discretion not to appoint people recommended by cabinet. “The chair doesn’t like the regional panels,” Bennett told me. “It’s a pain in the ass for the chair to have to deal with 18 farmers from all over the province in making decisions. It would be six farmers, because only one person from the regional panel actually sits on the provincial commission. “He thinks that it’s unwieldy, and he’d rather have the decision-making centralized in Burnaby. But we changed that. We decided as a duly elected government in 2003 that we wanted the regions to have a say on this stuff, so the intention of the legislation, we felt, was actually being defeated, because we hadn’t made it mandatory.” It will be mandatory soon, and Bullock’s days as commission chair appear to be numbered. “There’s no more discretion for any future chair to monkey with it,” Bennett added. One of Bennett’s key issues is denial of secondary residence construction to keep families on the land in the Interior. The legislation also introduces social and economic factors in weighing decisions in the North, Cariboo and Kootenay regions, where in most cases development pressure is an urban myth. The main ALC board will still have authority to revisit a local panel decision if the chair deems it inconsistent with the mandate to protect farmland.

Cost savings weeded out Editor: Re: Living proof of sustainability, April 10. Semiahmoo Library’s ‘living wall’ is a thing of interest and beauty. But I’m sure the cost of water, fertilizer and maintenance cancel out any cost savings. Gray Amphlett, Surrey

Tory offensive over elections Editor: Once more the Conservative Party of Canada has wallowed in the depravity of the lowest form of democracy and politics. I am referring to Democratic Reform Minister Pierre Poilievre launching an attack on Canada’s chief electoral officer Marc Mayrand. Mayrand has voiced his concerns regarding Bill C-23, the Fair Elections Act, as he should in his position as chief electoral officer. Instead of defending and discussing the bill, Poilievre attacked Mayrand personally in his position as chief electoral officer, accusing him of wanting more power and less accountability. This attack technique has become the standard procedure for the present Canadian government. They would prefer to bully and insult officers of Parliament, than to discuss and debate issues with them. Their arrogance and attitude does not stop at officers of Parliament, they have in many cases during their time in office attempted to bully and denigrate Canadians when citizens have disagreed with this government. It would appear to me that this government is afraid to discuss issues and would prefer to be bombastic in their actions. In my mind, they are insecure bullies and are afraid of Canadians. Ian Routledge, White Rock Q A question I would like to ask my voting neighbours and the Conservative backbenchers: Is allegiance to the Conservative party really more important to you than our duty for democracy and democratic principles? If you say democracy, then you cannot possibly justify supporting a mislabeled “Fair Elections Act” bill that editorial boards across this country, who have previously endorsed Prime Minister Stephen Harper, have condemned; that Canadian and global political science scholars plus current and past Chief Electoral Officers have condemned; that political pundits across the country and even the U.S. and U.K. have universally condemned; and respected Sheila Fraser, former auditor general has also condemned. How can Conservative MPs justify forcing their majority in the House of Commons and Senate for an Act that makes fundamental changes to

our electoral system? The bill appears to be bitter grudge acting out against all the Canadians that did not vote for them, as well as the supposed nonpartisan employees doing their jobs with respected and formerly credible methods. Any revisions to elections laws should have multi-party support, be evidence-based and look to the future. Pat Petrala, White Rock

‘New direction’ may be north Editor: Re: City names new planning director, March 20. So, according to previous Surrey deputy city manager Dan Bottrill – now White Rock’s city manager – White Rock is now planning to head into a “new direction.” Is it just a coincidence that it happens just at the same time as Surrey council is going to occupy their new castle in North Surrey? Could it be that they want a more working relationship – or integration – with Surrey, or what?

Because wasn’t the former Thornly/ Hayne Creative Communication Company – Bruce Hayne is now a Surrey councillor – very involved with White Rock’s rebranding to the silly name of “My City by the Sea”? There seem to be a lot of that my, my stuff going on like: my mountain, my hydro, my bank, my money, my sign, my gym, my year, etc. It seems as if there are now many people who want to take ownership of everything... just as they want to do with “My City by the Sea.” And who are the my, my people – it all seems to be coming from the same direction, and it may or may not be related to the “new direction” White Rock is heading to. Catharina Leidel, Surrey

Ignorance of discrimination Editor: The older I become and the more history read, the greater shame felt for being white. Horrible are the deeds done in the name of faith, country and commerce. Who can deny the stain in our past?

William Wilberforce spent his parliamentarian life to achieve the abolition of slavery in Britain and the Commonwealth. Since then, time has raised this noble people who were once put down as sub-human. Any discrimination today is sheer ignorance. We need a Canadian Wilberforce who will weep, sweat and toil in the complete libration of our native brothers and sisters. They are arising and shining in their traditions and ways, despite the shameful manacles holding them back. Remember well, without Tecumseh, there would not be a Canada. Beware, time also reveals a stern pendulum of retribution, exceeding justice, balances the scale. The perpetrators have long gone to their reward, and their great, great descendants bear the burden of correction. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada is a good start, but unfortunately it was formed for political reasons and not good will. The failure to hand over documents, without a court order, is perplexing and mean-spirited. Canada is better than this. Terry Miller, Surrey

quote of note

`

The hyperbole and frequent reference to claims that fire risks are 24-times higher for patients growing cannabis is little more than shameful.a

David Hutchinson

write: File photo

The perceived dangers of personal-use grow-ops for medical marijuana is being overstated, say letter writers.

Marijuana stance doesn’t add up Editor: Re: Pot laws need adjusting, April 3 column. Canadian Medical Cannabis Partners are encouraged by columnist Frank Bucholtz’s acknowledgment that the right platform for medical-cannabis regulation is the provincial government and that municipalities need to engage the provinces to make this happen. After our five years of forward motion in this direction, it is so disheartening to hear our premier revert to the old rhetoric “federal jurisdiction.” If she won’t listen to patients, maybe she will listen to the municipalities who are also major stakeholders. With regards to the Surrey fire chief ’s report filled with innuendos, the only relationship between the criminal element and those with health issues that use cannabis as their medicine is the relationship the media and politicians create so they can support a misguided agenda of profiteering, now becoming legal profiteering on the backs of our sickest and weakest. Yes, there are there people who misuse the system for profit. According to RCMP 2010 reports, that number is 70. That does not justify throwing under the bus the 39,930-plus law-abiding patients using their cannabis for their personal medical conditions. It is time the province accepts responsibility and begins the process of developing a provincial strategy so that we can truly get the criminal element out of the marijuana business and allow patients their dignity to access. The federal Conservatives program will cause an increase to criminal activity, less “safe communities”

and more harm to legitimate folks with health issues. In 2010, there were 106,000 deaths by pharmaceuticals and zero deaths by cannabis. It is time for the media to report truth and support life. Joy Davies, White Rock Q Some simple research of Health Canada figures for B.C. compared and aligned against statistics from the BC Coroners Service makes interesting reading and puts the truth out there. We are being systematically misled by journalists and fire chiefs, whom I suspect have either failed to properly research this matter, are failing to do their professional duty or, potentially, have other agendas. The figures reveal that while personal-use production licenses (PUPLs) in B.C. increased sixfold in the five-year period 2007-2011, during that same period the number of fatalities in fires fell by more than 30 per cent. However, the hyperbole and frequent reference to claims that fire risks are 24-times higher for patients growing cannabis is little more than shameful. Furthermore, if the ratio of fatalities to PUPLs in 2007 had continued, the number of fatalities would have risen from 33 to 212 – when it actually fell to just 20. As well, if ‘experts’ could cite references for the marijuana mould catastrophe that is presumably causing mass hospitalizations and sickness, their opinions might carry some weight with the people of B.C. I suspect no such catastrophic situation exists. David Hutchinson, Surrey

Conviction lands Surrey father 18-month sentence

House arrest for grow-op Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A single father of three who was convicted of producing marijuana and possession for the purpose of trafficking has been handed concurrent 18-month conditional sentences for the crimes. Nhuc Minh Ta, 48, learned his fate earlier this year in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster. According to the reasons for sentence, officers with Surrey RCMP’s Marijuana Enforcement Team found a “relatively sophisticated” grow-op while executing a search warrant at a home in the 17200-block of 64A Street on Sept. 1, 2010. The home’s basement was divided into five separate grow rooms containing a total 584 plants at different stages of development; upstairs, five terrariums with 287 marijuana clones were located. At trial, held last year on Jan. 7-10 and Aug. 19, value of the crop was estimated at between $196,000 and $305,000. The court also heard the residence had had extensive renovations, including the installation of an exhaust system that ran from the basement, through two floors and into the attic. As well, it had a hydro bypass. During the search, police located a pair of pants containing Ta’s wallet and driver’s licence. In determining sentence Jan. 23, Justice Richard Goepel considered that Ta has no prior criminal record, has been on bail without incident since the grow-op was discovered and that he is the main support for his three children, aged 15 to 19 years old, and

his 86-year-old mother. “Outside of this matter, he appears to have been a law-abiding and contributing member to society since coming to this country in 1987,” Goepel found. Aggravating factors were the size and sophistication of the grow-op, and location. “This operation was undertaken in a residential neighbourhood and posed potential dangers to others in the neighbourhood both from the violence that can be associated with

grow operations and the serious risk that can be caused by an electrical by-pass,” Goepel found. “Mr. Ta stood to profit greatly from his enterprise. Absent any evidence to the contrary, I infer his sole motive was greed.” Crown had argued that a jail term of 15 months was appropriate, along with a weapons prohibition, a DNA order and forfeiture of goods seized during the 2010 search. Defense counsel asked Goepel to impose a conditional sentence.

Conditions of Ta’s term include one year of house arrest during which he may only leave his home for work, court or medical appointments, or religious-services, with the exception of four hours per week on a Saturday or Sunday. For the final six months of the term, Ta was ordered to abide by a curfew. Goepel also imposed a weapons prohibition, ordered Ta to submit a DNA sample and ordered forfeiture of the items seized by police.

Dr. Marita Schauch, BSc, ND

I have terrible PMS every month and my periods are really heavy – is there anything natural I can take to get some relief? Premenstrual syndrome, also known as PMS, can include symptoms such as mood swings, depression, cravings, bloating, water retention and headaches. PMS can occur for up to 2 weeks before the onset of a woman’s menstrual flow and affects somewhere between 70 to 90% of women. An imbalance in hormones, especially the ratio of estrogen to progesterone, is commonly the culprit for many women. This is often referred to as “Estrogen Dominance” and can develop as a result of poor diet, a sluggish liver and exposure to excess environmental estrogens found in plastics, cosmetics, pesticides, the birth control pill, or hormone replacement therapy. Estrogen dominance has been linked to a wide range of conditions, including heavy, painful periods, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, infertility and even estrogen dependent cancers such as breast and uterine cancers. The herb milk thistle has a long history of being a very safe liver detoxifier. A healthy liver helps to eliminate and detoxify these harmful and excess estrogens in order to boost the body’s metabolic rate and ensure that estrogen and progesterone are in healthy balance. Other beneficial herbs to help balance high estrogen levels include: curcumin, calciumd-glucarate, indole-3-carbinol and sulforaphane. EstroSense® is a safe and effective detoxifier that helps to eliminate those harmful, excess estrogens so that you can have effortless and PMS free periods!

But Stone said the board must ensure its budgets comply with the 10-year investment plan, which the mayors will control. He said the province made significant concessions in handing over more control and promising one-third funding for new rapid transit lines and replacement of the Pattullo Bridge.

Transportation Minister Todd Stone insists a planned referendum on TransLink expansion is winnable despite a barrage of dire predictions from Opposition New Democrats. Two bills to reform TransLink governance and enable the promised referendum got second reading in the B.C. Legislature last week. NDP transportation critic Claire Trevena called it a “dangerous” and “troubling” descent into California-style referendum politics that risks defeat by voters and continued impasse on securing much-needed transit upgrades.

project to fruition. Parents of the South Surrey school – led by co-ordinator Kym Parsons – fundraised for months for the $125,000 playground, which replaced the ageing and overused apparatus that was there previously.

The elementary students are excited about the new playground, which Parson noted has space to grow. With the foundation already in place, there is a corner of the playground that could be filled with another apparatus when funds allow.

Design for a nursery or child’s room has come a long way since blue for boys and pink for girls.

Decor for the younger set By Kerry Vital If you’re interior designinclined, one of the fun parts of raising a child can be decorating their room, whether it’s designing their nursery or re-decorating a room to suit an older kid who has outgrown their babyish tastes. However, if trendy home decor isn’t high on your priority list, it can be hard to know where to start. “You want timeless pieces that can grow with the child,”

Reviving the 70s with the help of Best Builders Best Builders worked with Sarah Gallop Design Inc. to create a modernized home while still keeping the 70s style the owner wanted. By Kerry Vital Old is new again with Best Builders’ 70s-style project that has more than a touch of retro flair. In partnership with Sarah Gallop Design Inc., Best Builders was able to give the homeowners exactly what they were looking for while sticking to budget and bringing everything in on time. “The homeowner had a specific style in mind,” says Best

Builders owner Todd Best. “It really turned out amazing.” Best notes that the original home was very closed off, with individual rooms instead of open space. He and his team opened up the entire main floor to make it more useable for the entire family. “Now, there’s nowhere in the house that you can’t hear ‘time for dinner!’” Best says. “It’s a complete transformation.” The outdoor space is one of the most spectacular things about the new home, and Best is very proud of it. “The outdoor turf soccer field is built to the same specifications as the (Vancouver) Whitecaps field,” he says. That field can also be turned into a volleyball court by folding away the nets. There is also an outdoor fire pit and new tiered sun deck, among other features. “You never have to leave the house,” says Best, adding that

the homeowner’s children come home with their friends every day and spend hours playing outside. Of course, that’s only when their parents aren’t using it themselves. There is now 2,100 square feet of outdoor living space for the family to enjoy. “We were constantly working with the homeowners,” says Best. “Our guys would be talking to them and giving them new ideas all the time.” Other outdoor additions included new fencing, a new gate and a trellis. The homeowners wanted to keep the 1970s look of the exterior, so Best and his team removed the old cladding, planed it and re-installed it. The aim was to respect the existing

New millwork was

added, including shoe storage in an entry pony wall for extra convenience and flat crown cabinetry that utilizes contrasting white and dark finishes. The master bedroom was moved downstairs and a spa-like ensuite was added, and the kitchen was moved from the centre of the home to the rear wall to create a great room-kitchen combination. A live edge wood bar top is included on the kitchen island for an extra touch of vintage style. The redesigned family room is now the favoured place for the whole family to spend time together, whether it’s doing homework or watching a movie by the fire. “Family comes first to the homeowner,” says Best. “It’s been a very well-received project.” The home has been named a finalist in three categories at the Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association Ovation Awards, for Best Kitchen and Greatroom Renovation, Best Renovation: $300,000 to $499,999 and Best Outdoor Living Space: New or Renovated. The winners will be named on April 26. “We have a very strong team,” says Best. “We guarantee quality and take great pride in our finishing.”

The soccer pitch was built to the same specifications as the Vancouver Whitecaps field, above, while the exterior, far left, was rebuilt to fit in with the surrounding neighbourhood. Cedar panelling, left, was retained as another 70s-style feature. Ema Peter photos

Animals never go out of style when it comes to nursery decor such as triangles, circles and plus signs are all popular right now. “People are introducing metallics,” says De’Ath. “The easiest way is through a wall decal, lamps or other light fixtures.” Like many other rooms, grey is a big colour for nurseries and kid’s bedrooms for 2014. “It’s popular in all tones,” says De’Ath. Easy additions to spice up a nursery or children’s room include personalized decor such as wooden letters spelling out their name. “Kids love to see their names,” says De’Ath. Keeping things organized, especially when there’s a baby around, is extremely important. Having everything to hand with wall hooks

““from 15 frompage. page.1 says Jacqueline De’Ath, owner and designer at Homeworks Etc. Designs, noting the example of a changing table that converts to a dresser once the child is no longer in diapers. Many cribs will convert into a toddler bed, and a well-chosen room theme can continue to be appropriate for many years. “I see a lot of repurposing furniture,” says De’Ath. “You can take an end table and make it into a nightstand. Paint it a bright colour to add a pop to the room.” Textiles such as sheets and pillows are another way to add interest to a room. Prints

Animals are still a popular theme for nurseries and children’s bedrooms, no matter the gender. Making sure the room is functional on top of being cute and comfortable is important. Photos submitted by Homeworks Etc. Designs

and other storage solutions can save you valuable seconds. As for themes, popular ones might be familiar to many of us. “Animals are always a classic for nurseries,” says De’Ath. “They never go out of style.” Other popular themes for a baby or older child’s room right now include pirates, dinosaurs, flowers and the ever-classic princesses. Making a room themed can be as easy as finding the perfect decal to add to a wall. “Wall decals are almost replacing wallpaper right now,” says De’Ath. “They’re not as permanent, so they can be removed easily.” She also notes that blackboards are popular additions to bedrooms right now. “You can write little notes and messages to your kid,” De’Ath says. “Kids love notes, and it encourages play in a room.” Her number one tip for parents? “Keep it simple,” she says. “You should also know your style. Is it modern, classic, vintage? You need to know what you’re looking for.” She also recommends making sure the room is functional by ensuring that it has space for sleeping, playing and whatever else the child will use it for. Decorating a nursery or children’s room has come a long way in the past few decades; you’re no longer relegated to blue for boys and pink for girls. Now, you can decorate that room just as you would decorate your own; suiting the occupant’s taste and style.

Busy week for Premier Baseball League squad continues with midweek games

Tritons nab just one win on road trip Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The BC Premier Baseball League season didn’t get off to a roaring start for the White Rock Tritons on the weekend. The South Surrey-based U18 team – which is aiming for a winning season and playoff berth for the first time since 2009 – dropped three of four games to the Okanagan Athletics last weekend in Kelowna. In the season-opener – and first game of a doubleheader – Saturday afternoon at Kelowna’s Elks Stadium, the Tritons led 5-4 heading into the bottom of the seventh inning. But, with one out, A’s Jarrid Young walked and, after advancing to second base after the next batter was hit by a pitch, later scored on a single to tie the game. The game then moved to extra innings, but the tie was short-lived as Okanagan right-fielder Matt Brodt walked in the Tom Melenchuk bottom of the eighth and, Tritons four batters later – after a walk, wild pitch and a hit batter – scored the winning run. Barry Caine was tagged with the loss for the visitors; the South Surrey pitcher was the fourth pitcher of the game for the Tritons. Scott Doucet started, lasting four-and-one-third innings, allowing five hits and four runs while striking out one. Anthony Aiello and Keaton Edwards also saw time on the mound in the loss. At the plate, White Rock was led by first baseman Tom Melenchuk, who had a triple and two runs-batted-in. After giving up the late lead in the opening, the Tritons fared far better in the second game Saturday. White Rock scored one run in the first inning – Jake Gill came around to score after being hit by a pitch to lead off the bottom of the inning – but then peppered Okanagan pitchers for three runs in each of the next three frames. The Athletics responded with a big third inning, scoring six runs to chase White Rock starting pitcher Allen Hogg from the game, but despite tacking on single runs in the fourth and seventh innings, it was not enough to win. Melenchuk – who hit .500 on the weekend

Aiello, pitching in relief of Hogg, picked up the win, striking out a pair of A’s and allowing three hits in three-and-a-third innings. While Saturday’s games were both relatively close contests, Sunday’s final two tilts were a little more wide open, with the home team winning the opener by a 12-5 margin, before capping the weekend with a 5-1 win. In the first game, Okanagan scored at least one run in every inning, while the Tritons managed just five hits off Athletic pitchers Easton Forrest and Hendrik Terwood. White Rock pitcher Patrick van den Brink

got the ball to start the game, lasting four innings before he was replaced by Jason Hill. In the nightcap, the game was close in the early stages – Okanagan broke a scoreless tie in the third inning, when Trevor Lofstrom’s double scored a run. The home team added three more in the fifth and one in the sixth to seal the win. Offensively, White Rock struggled against Brodt, who went the distance for the Athletics, striking out eight while giving up just the one run. Barry Caine was the team’s lone runner to cross the plate, scoring in the fifth inning after an error by the Athletics’ catcher. Though they won just once, the Tritons did find success on the base paths, swiping

a PBL-leading 15 bags in four games. Melenchuk and Caine each had four steals apiece. This week is another busy one for the Tritons, who play tonight (Tuesday) against the Langley Blaze, and Thursday at home for a doubleheader against the Vancouver Cannons. On Sunday, they host the Nanaimo Pirates for a pair of afternoon tilts at South Surrey Athletic Park.

Maria Maskall edges competition

Skater wins B.C. title

Contributed photo

Maria Maskall stands atop the podium.

White Rock-South Surrey Skating Club’s Maria Maskall is a provincial champion. The onetime figure skater – who joined the WRSSSC in 2006 – stood alone atop the junior silver ladies rankings after the final BC StarSkate Super Series competition last month in Kelowna. The provincial title is based on skaters’ results over five competitions from

the past year; the top three results from the five then determine the overall champion. Maskall, a Grade 11 student at Southridge School, achieved the highest totals of 40 total skaters. With a B.C. title in tow, Maskall advanced to the senior silver category, and began her competitive season at that level last weekend at an event in Nanaimo. – Nick Greenizan

Chiefs, Blue Jays to play Thursday i from page 21 play – but the Whalley Chiefs did earn one win Saturday. Hosting Vancouver at Whalley Athletic Park, the Chiefs edged the Cannons 4-3 thanks to a late surge. Trailing 3-1, the home team scored twice in the sixth and added the go-ahead run in the seventh to steal the win. Andrew Callegari – pitching in relief of Max Williams – got the win for the Chiefs. Whalley was not quite as lucky in the second game, losing 4-2.

sports

The .500 start was an encouraging one for a young Whalley squad that, in the off-season, lost six would-be returnees to other organizations. “Six players with one more year of eligibility left us for greener pastures,” said Chiefs general manager Paul Hargreaves. “Losing six guys hurt us. But we’re rebuilding and we have some good, young talent.” The Chiefs will travel to North Delta Thursday to take on the Blue Jays, before returning to Whalley for a pair of games Sunday against the visiting Victoria Mariners. – with files from Rick Kupchuk

First Time Home Buyers Tax Break

When purchasing a home you are required to pay Property Transfer Tax (PTT) based on the fair market value of the property at the time of registration. PTT is calculated at a rate of 1% on the first $200,000 and 2% on the remaining value of the purchase price. For example, when purchasing a home for $250,000, the tax is 1% of $200,000 ($2,000) plus 2% of the remaining $50,000 ($1,000) for a total tax of $3,000. PTT must be paid unless you qualify for an exemption. One such exemption is for those purchasing a home for the first time. First-time home buyers may qualify for the PTT First-Time Home Buyers Exemption and be entitled to either a full or partial exemption from paying this PTT. On February 19, 2014 the BC government announced that the PTT First-Time Home Buyers Exemption will be increased - meaning that qualifying first-time buyers will be exempt from paying the PTT on the purchase of a home with a purchase price up to $475,000 (increased from the previous threshold of $425,000). Partial exemptions will apply to the purchase of homes valued between $475,000 and $500,000 if certain conditions are met. This increased threshold can result in savings of up to $7,500 and helps make home ownership more affordable for first-time buyers.

Basketball game brings end to season

All-stars hit court Rick Kupchuk Black Press

More than 30 of the best graduating high school basketball players in the city suited up for the annual Surrey All-Star Classic earlier this month at Enver Creek Secondary. Both boys’ and girls’ games were held during the April 5 event, with players in dark jerseys on a Color team playing against Team White. Following the game, five players received scholarship awards. “The All Star Classic went very well,” said Rick Inrig of the organizing committee. “Insp. (Garry) Begg of the RCMP and Rick Ryan, Deputy Superintendent of the school district were there to present all participants with trophies and a commemorative shirt.” In the boys’ game, the White team defeated the Color team 98-74, with a pair of Tamanawis Wildcats leading the way for the winners. Parmvir Bains netted 22 points, including six treys, while Sukhjot Bains scored 17 points. In a balanced attack, the White team also got 13 points from Henry Madabueke of the Holy Cross Crusaders, 12 from Matt Grewal of the North Surrey Spartans, and 10

from Bright Dodoza of the Crusaders. Leading scorers on the Color team were Ziggy Brown of Sullivan Heights Stars with 14 points, Iyanu Akindele of the Pacific Academy Breakers with 13, Nimrit Plaha of the Panorama Ridge Thunder with 12 and Sukhraj Biring of Tamanawis with 10. Scholarship recipients were Sukhjot Bains (RCMP Fitness Town Scholarship), Plaha and Skylar Sheehan of the Semiahmoo Totems (Surrey School District Scholarships), Parmeet Matharu of the Enver Creek Cougars (Christopher Mohan Memorial Scholarship), and Nick Smith of the Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers (Roger Pierlet Memorial Scholarship, presented by the Bank of Montreal). In the girls’ game, the Color team came out on top 61-47. Rachel Beauchamp of Holy Cross was the game’s high scorer, leading the winners with 20 points. Harleen Atwal of Enver Creek added 13 points, including a trio of three-point buckets in the fourth quarter. For the White team, Amy Sprangers, also of Holy Cross, led the way with 15 points. Crusaders teammate Michelle Bos added nine points.
