Saying she is being discouraged from thinking or acting independently, an outspoken Surrey councillor is cutting ties with the Surrey First team. Effective immediately, Coun. Barinder Rasode is leaving Surrey First, the “coalition of independents” led by Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts, that, until now, held every seat on Surrey council. And Rasode told Black Press that if Watts chooses not to run again in November’s civic election, she will run for mayor. “I do believe if the mayor’s chair is vacant, I

Linda Hepner confirmed she was testing the water for mayoral support if the mayor should decide not to run. In a poll of other councillors, Coun. Bruce Hayne said he would consider a mayoral run if Watts wasn’t in the race, and Coun. Tom Gill said he might. The rest of council either said they hadn’t thought about it or outright rejected the idea. i see page 4

Machinery that has been on the waterfront in Crescent Beach since late February continues to dot the landscape, as the City of Surrey works to replace 26 deteriorating wooden groynes with composite-plastic, marine-friendly structures that will better weather the conditions. The $1.4-million effort is anticipated to continue into May.

A stalemate in negotiations between the City of White Rock and its unionized employees has seemingly been lifted. CUPE spokeswoman Roseanne Moran said Wednesday that new talks have been scheduled between the two groups for late next week. The progress was announced less than 48 hours after the local (40201) union president described odds of a strike in the city as “very good.” Mike Guraliuk told Peace Arch News Tuesday that when the two sides left mediated discussion that wrapped up April 1, “we were not talking.” Coupled with a strong strike mandate, Guraliuk predicted 72-hour strike notice would be issued late this week. Talks between the city and union broke down two weeks ago. Essential-service levels were finalized by the Labour Relations Board on Monday. i see page 4

The original link When SkyTrain between the two communities opened in 1986, it was the initial was by ferry. In 1904, when the “end of the line” and this led current rail bridge between the to a great deal of residential two cities was built, it included development, which continues an upper deck for pedestrians, to this day. horses and the very occasional New Westminster residents motor vehicle.

he says, they probably aren’t an advantage to Surrey residents either, given that they will be stalled on roads that have changed little since the 1960s once they cross the bridge. Simmons points out where some traffic improvements would really make a difference. One is at the junction of 72 Avenue and Highway 91 in Delta; another involves traffic on Highway 91A through Queensborough. Both of these locations are badly congested, daily. In fact, Queensborough is so difficult to get in and out of that rents tend to be lower there. Simmons’ final suggested improvement, to have more light rail transit south of the Fraser, is one that Surrey politicians and planners would love to see – but TransLink has yet to indicate that one cent will be made available for any implementation. As Surrey grows, and there are more jobs south of the Fraser, a Surrey-oriented rapid transit system will make more and more sense. There will be even fewer reasons to go to New Westminster. Perhaps the best thing to do with the Pattullo is just leave it alone. The toll situation needs to be made fairer, and that would ease some of the congestion, but beyond that, it may not be worth spending anything on it. New Westminster wanted it right where it was built, and it may be in Surrey’s best interests to respect that long-ago decision. Frank Bucholtz writes Thursdays for the Peace Arch News.

Ticked-off trustees say they’re left out of negotiations with teachers

School board has no say on bargaining Sheila Reynolds & Tom Fletcher Black Press

Surrey school trustees are miffed they haven’t been properly consulted during teacher bargaining, even though they’ll be the ones left to deal with any fallout. The Surrey Board of Education’s frustration followed a letter last month from the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association (BCPSEA) to the B.C. Teachers’ Federation (BCTF), telling the union it would be responsible for funding health and welfare benefits if teachers go on strike. BCPSEA represents school districts in contract talks between the government and the BCTF. Trustee Terry Allen said while some school boards had an opportunity to take a stance on the issue, Surrey never had a chance to

meet or provide any input – which he says runs contrary to BCPSEA’s responsibility to consult school boards. As well, Allen says, it demonstrates that the board has little control over how Surrey’s teachers are treated and further erodes the role of trustees. “This puts us in the ultimate position of being a firewall,” said Allen. “We’re the ultimate employer, but they (BCPSEA) can dictate what takes place at the bargaining table.” The board voted unanimously last week to express its dismay to the BCPSEA, local MLAs and Minister of Education Peter Fassbender. If the benefits edict goes ahead, it would cost the BCTF about $5 million to cover the benefits for Surrey’s 5,000 teachers for just one month. It’s estimated the cost province-

wide would top $39 million. “There’s nothing we can do to turn this back,” said Allen. “But they can’t continue these draconian measures… and leave us to wear it.” Meanwhile, after rejecting an offer from the school district bargaining agency for a long-term contract, the B.C. Teachers’ Federation went to the Labour Relations Board this week to establish essential-service levels for strike action. BCTF members voted 89 per cent in March to endorse a three-stage strike plan that can begin with 72 hours’ notice. Phase 1 includes restricting communication with school managers, arriving no more than an hour before and leaving an hour after school hours, and refusing supervision of students

outside class time. It does not affect prearranged voluntary activities such as coaching, but the refusal of supervision requires essential-service levels that compel some teachers to assure the safety of students while they are out of classes. Peter Cameron, chief negotiator for B.C.’s 60 school districts, said there are some rural schools with no management staff to supervise playgrounds. Typically, it is the employers’ association that seeks an essential-services order, but this time the BCTF applied. That’s unusual for a union that has a history of opposing essential-service orders at the LRB and the International Labour Organization, Cameron said. It is also a sign that the BCTF is preparing for strike action after the Easter break.

Three memorials

Honours for Reid Kevin Diakiw Black Press

The late Bill Reid will be memorialized with an outdoor venue, a Cloverdale road and a statue, according to a plan adopted by the City of Surrey this week. Known as ‘Mr. Surrey,’ Reid was close to the hearts of many, particularly in Cloverdale, which he trumpeted as one of the best places to live. The city is planning to rename the Cloverdale Millennium Amphitheatre as Bill Reid Millennium Amphitheatre. Bill Reid Surrey is also ‘Mr. Surrey’ looking at naming 62 Avenue, between 176 and 180 Streets, Bill Reid Way. Plans are also in the works to have artist Paul Slipper carve a statue of Reid for placement in Cloverdale. Reid was arguably one of the biggest boosters of Surrey and of Cloverdale, where he was considered the unofficial mayor. Reid was an alderman with the municipality of Delta from 1973 to 1978, a Social Credit MLA from 1986 to 1991 and was minister of tourism from 1986 to 1989. Following his political career, he served as vice-president of the South Surrey and White Rock Chamber of Commerce, the president of the Cloverdale Business Improvement Association and executive director of the Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce. He died of cancer last May 28 at age 78. Monday evening, Surrey council endorsed a proposal to rename the Cloverdale Amphitheatre and a road after Reid, which could happen by next month, with an official launch at the May 23 rodeo. The sculpture is expected to take three months to create.

Keen outdoorsman and environmentalist Ron Meadley has been named this year’s Surrey Good Citizen of the Year. The honour was conferred on Meadley by Surrey council Tuesday night at the city’s annual volunteer services celebration, which recognizes committee volunteers for their hard work throughout the year. “Ron Meadley has passionately advocated for the conservation and enhancement of Surrey’s natural areas for many years,” said Mayor Dianne Watts. “His tireless work for the protection of the environment will have a lasting impact in our city.” Among Meadley’s volunteerism have been stints as vice president of both the Semiahmoo Fish and Game Club and the Little Campbell Watershed Society.

I’m a consensus builder: Rasode i from page 1 This week, Rasode – sounding more like a mayoral candidate than a disgruntled city councillor – said she has identified the issues she wants to address. Key among them are public safety, spending, public engagement and transparency at city hall. Rasode said the city needs 45 more police officers as soon as they can be hired. That will bring the city up to the officer-perpopulation ratio promised in a 2007 Crime Reduction Strategy. She wants to see a spending freeze at city hall until publicsafety matters can be resolved. She also wants an end to taxpayers’ money being spent on the Surrey Regional Economic Summit, something the mayor has long said was paid for through sponsors and ticket sales. “The city still makes a contribution,” Rasode revealed, noting she couldn’t give a dollar figure because the issue was dealt with

Invasive species also removed along Marine Drive

Trees cut to open views

Supporting a loved one with memory loss?

Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Efforts to clear invasive vegetation and hazardous trees from White Rock’s Marine Drive “hump” are to restore view corridors and enable a stability check of the hillside retaining walls, officials say. Director of engineering and municipal operations Greg St. Louis said this week the work got underway Monday, will be largely complete by the end of the week and has the necessary approval of land owner BNSF. While St. Louis said the majority of comments from the public regarding the work have been positive, two people who contacted Peace Arch News were critical. “They’re cutting down a lot of trees. It is a mess,” said Donna Andrews, who walks the area three to four times a week and is concerned about the slope’s stability. “What’s going to eventually happen is that hillside is going to go right down.” Sharon Keenan said she is concerned about the impact to birds that use the area, in particular, eagles that roost in one of the larger trees. “They are hacking trees down and going in at least 16 feet,”

Border upgrade welcome

N

ews that the Aldergrove border crossing will get a new building and Nexus lane starting in 2016 – and that there will be an expanded commercial port of entry there – is excellent news for cross-border travellers across Metro Vancouver. In recent years, local border crossings have become increasingly congested, due in part to both population growth in border communities, such as Surrey and White Rock, and the Canadian loonie being – until recent months, at least – near par with the U.S. dollar, thus drawing shoppers stateside. So, with traffic increasing at both Douglas and Pacific Highway crossings here, it makes sense for the Aldergrove crossing to expand. The Nexus lane will be especially helpful to ease the burden at South Surrey’s two crossings, and will offer much improved service to a large population area. The news about the commercial port of entry is particularly important to local business. In Langley, growth of the Gloucester industrial area and proximity to Highway 1 make it a natural for businesses to ship goods via Highway 13 and the Guide Meridian in Washington. And while Surrey-based shippers will likely continue to move commercial goods through the Pacific Highway crossing, it at the very least provides more options during heavy-traffic times, saving importers and exporters both time and money. Though construction projects at the crossing may cause disruptions to travellers in the short term – one needn’t look further than Douglascrossing upgrades in 2008 and ‘09 for evidence of such issues – in the long run, the move will be good for travellers south of the Fraser. As well, if the project does, in fact, provide a boost to industry, it may well increase employment in Langley, Surrey and surrounding communities, most of which continue to grow rapidly. Business benefits aside, it simply makes sense at the most basic level to have border traffic be as seamless and quick as possible, no matter the port of entry, particularly in an age where border security is a much more important issue than it used to be. It is also time for Canada Border Services Agency to again consider 24-hour service. The opening hours of 8 a.m. to midnight at the Aldergrove crossing are a quaint anachronism, dating back to when the community was wholly rural. Having the border open 24 hours a day – like South Surrey and Sumas crossings – would offer even more service to travellers.

wants,” the “she hit me’s,” and the “I’m bored’s” that won’t take a break just because mommy is tired. I’m not saying I’ve become a hermit. My children and I have long conversations about the meaning of life – mostly involving the characters in the film Frozen – and there are plenty of play dates on our calendar. Heck, I even still like to mingle – from the comfort of my couch, behind the safety of a screen. Lately, coffee dates have been replaced with Facebook chats. And Twitter has become a great place to rub elbows and network without having to put on lipstick or pants. I’m great at making an effort online, even if it’s just a comment on a someone’s Facebook status. But I know that any digital connection runs a high risk of being disconnected quickly. Still, a good handful of pals have stood by me, accepting our brief interactions, as sporadic as they are, and not taking my indifference personally  – or so I hope. I take comfort in knowing that the old adage of ‘at every age, there is a stage,’ isn’t just meant for kids. It’s for us parents, too. It may not be tomorrow or even next year, but one day when I’m not cocooned in blankets on the couch, covered in Spaghettios and a cuddly preschooler or two, I’ll be a good friend again – maybe even a butterfly. Until then, just know you’re in my thoughts and my newsfeed. Kristyl Clark is a former Peace Arch News reporter and founder of the blog She’s a Valley Mom.

Dangers need repercussions

Political names hide agendas

Editor: I am writing to voice concern over a recent incident as I was riding my bicycle to work on Saturday, April 12 on King George Boulevard. Near the intersection on 20 Avenue, as I was driving northbound in the designated bike shoulder, a dump truck passed me then immediately came into the bike lane, forcing me off the road. I was screaming and laid on my air horn. He did not stop – he allowed a second dump truck to pass, then moved back into the motorized lane and continued to his job site blocks away. I caught up with the drivers there and went onto the job site. I complained to the staff on site, pointed to the truck, and explained what had happened. They said they would “can him,” but I saw no serious action taken by site staff. Upon arriving at work, I immediately sent an email to the construction company, which was closed. I telephoned the following Monday and asked that action be taken regarding the incident, and that I be informed when appropriate action had been taken. The safety officer informed me the site staff did not seem to recall the degree of upset I tried to convey to them, as they did not recall which truck was involved. Further contact indicated the driver was a sub-sub-sub-contractor, and therefore the company had no direct control over the safety concern introduced by this driver. I called WorkSafe BC to submit a complaint; they told me it was a police incident. I called Surrey RCMP, who told me it was too late for them to do anything about it. I have tried to be fair and allow the organization time to handle this in an appropriate manner. However, I have learned there seem to be few, if any, repercussions for avoiding serious attention to safety. I hope that by making the situation public, further incidents will come forward. Greater public safety is required when it comes to how we all use the road. Darryl MacKenzie, Surrey

Editor: Has anyone at Peace Arch News ever done an analysis of the BC Liberal party and how it was able to use that name, even though they have many of the Conservative values of the federal government? It seems like false advertising and confuses a lot of voters. Labels are important and sometimes designed to baffle. That is perhaps why the new unfair elections act by the federal government is called “Fair.” We live in the land of opposites when marketers and publicists tinker with perceptions and sometimes create false realities. So we count on journalists to pursue the truth and reveal the wolf in sheep’s clothing. Bill Pavlik, Surrey

Parenting pays off Editor: Re: French space scarce, April 10. Few parents would go to the extent of working the phone to make 800 dial attempts and never give up. Erin McCall is certainly no average parent when it comes to being involved in her kid’s education. But she would have been just an average parent among parents of kids attending Frenchimmersion schools. It follows that it is no surprise such kids tend to do well in their studies if we believe that parents’ involvement would help in kids’ studies, especially in elementary school. Fen Kong Liew, Surrey

Advice for letter writers Editor: Re: Environmental discourse; Plenty of concern over GMO food, April 10 letters. May I offer a few thoughts for consideration when commenting on the issues of the day. 1. Avoid “ad hominem” attacks on those who do not share your views. Frances Saxton Manary’s letter alludes to several defects in my

personality that I was unaware of. And she followed up with a duplicate mailed to my home! A writer only confirms the weakness of their arguments when deploying such tactics. 2. Use facts and figures, with identified sources, when presenting your argument or opinion. Herb Spencer’s letter commenting on GMO food claims “75,000 artificial chemicals” have been added to our food chain and environment since 1945. The reader has no idea if this is true or false, what is the source quoted or what are “artificial” chemicals. 3. Filling space with unfounded or imaginary theories does not advance a commentary. Clearly Spencer’s world is full of conspirators and conspiracies favouring GMO foods, but the only things I learned from his letter is that he’s anti-GMO, anticapitalism, anti-tobacco and detests Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Peace Arch News provides a neutral forum for reasoned debate. Columnists like Tom Fletcher and Roy Strang provide excellent fodder. Let’s elevate our written offerings. Francis Patrick Jordan, White Rock Q I must thank letter-writer David Poole for making my day. I laughed so hard while reading his letter that I sprayed coffee on my newspaper. If I can be characterized as an “environment extremist,” then God only knows how Poole would label Paul Watson, Greenpeace activists or the people who stood up for Clayquot Sound back in the day. “Eco-terrorists” perhaps? To set the record straight, the

most “extreme” action I have taken in recent years was to write an annual cheque to the David Suzuki Foundation. Yes, Mr. Poole, that would be the same David Suzuki who only last week penned an article supporting windmill farms, even if one was to be located front and centre in the view from his home. Other examples of my “extremism”: there was my active opposition 25 years ago to the inane plan to locate a toxic-waste incinerator in the middle of productive farm land near Cache Creek; there was that time I voted for the Green Party because I believed Elizabeth May was more deserving of my support than were the leaders of the major national parties; and, mea culpa, I confess I drove a dieselpowered SmartCar for years. Finally, I have served for the past seven years on the City of Surrey Environmental Sustainability Advisory Committee – not exactly a hotbed of environmental rhetoric. I am pleased to read that Poole acknowledges my right to be heard – unlike the muzzled scientists employed by our federal government – but that is not reason for this letter. Neither am I writing to correct his misrepresentation of my argument. No, the reason for this letter is to endorse Poole as a worthy successor to our soon-to-be-retired member of Parliament. Throwing disparaging names at people with whom you disagree typifies political discourse these days. Thus it would appear he would fit seamlessly into the current Tory caucus. He has my best wishes, if not my vote. Bill Stewart, Surrey

The steam whistle of the Royal Hudson – seen in a 2010 visit – is preferred to today’s horns, writes Edward Rubin.

Resounding success of the past Editor: Re: Train horns easy to quell, April 1 letters. Sigh, again with the train noise problems. Actually, I remember this problem discussed at a presentation of sound reproduction back in the mid’60s at Vancouver City College. The problem with train warnings was that with the end of steam-engine use came the end of steam whistles. The romantic “onward sound of the outward bound” whooo whooo whoo-whooo of trains on tracks became the honk honk honk-honk of road-driven trucks. This mistake caused an upsurge in correlations with trains. People didn’t realize it was a train on the tracks,

not a truck on the road. Obviously, it would be too much to expect railroads to include a least one steam engine on each and every train, even just a small one with the sole use of producing steam for a whistle. But what they can do is record with the excellent equipment available today the sound of a real steam whistle and play that. Everybody likes that sound and knows what it stands for. Problem solved. Oh, about trains passing through White Rock and Crescent Beach? Raise the tracks on trestles. Trestle blocking the view? Build it with clear Plexiglas. Edward Rubin, Surrey

First responders ‘unnecessarily’ speeding to many calls

Crews ‘haven’t kept pace’ Tracy Holmes & Jeff Nagel Black Press

A contentious decision by the province to stop dispatching ambulances at high speed for less urgent medical calls was questioned by White Rock councillors this week, following a presentation by B.C. Emergency Health Services officials. “It seems to me the level of service we’re getting… is going down,” said Coun. Al Campbell, referring to the Resource Allocation Plan implemented in November that slowed ambulances to posted speeds for dozens of routine calls with stable patients. “If you’re hurt, you want to see a red-and-white.” Campbell raised the issue with Dr. William Dick, who also spoke at a media briefing Tuesday. Dick and other BCEHS officials have been on the defensive since November, after which – according to BCEHS – ambulance response times have averaged six minutes slower provincially and 10 minutes slower in the Lower Mainland for the downgraded calls. At the same time, response times to urgent lights-and-sirens emergencies have picked up pace, by about a minute. In White Rock/South Surrey, average response times “are good,” Dick told council, citing a 17.6-minute response for less

Ambulance service has come under debate in B.C. urgent calls and 12 minutes for “hot” responses. “It would be nice to have even quicker times. We have to do the best we can for the sicker patients first.” Dick said Tuesday officials are “absolutely confident” that the changes are for the better, and paramedics are “getting to sicker patients faster.” He argued against sending municipal first responders – i.e. firefighters – at high speed to calls that aren’t medically urgent when they can only provide “comfort care” while waiting longer for paramedics to arrive under the revised protocol. Municipalities are being urged to adopt the same approach to close the gap in response times, noting it could save cities money and reduce the risk of crashes

MEET ME AT THE CROSS & MARCH FOR JESUS

between their responding fire trucks and the public. Although BCEHS could impose the priority changes on firstresponder dispatch as well, it has said it will abide by the wishes of municipalities. Monday, White Rock Mayor Wayne Baldwin noted the number of ambulances and manpower hasn’t kept pace with the “huge” population growth seen on the Semiahmoo Peninsula. He cited the recent experience of a councillor who waited 20 minutes for an ambulance after collapsing due to blood loss – while firefighters arrived at the scene in two minutes – as example of why there is concern. “We certainly appreciate the challenges you’ve got. What people are most interested in is how long is it going to take,” Baldwin said. “You have to keep the patient foremost as opposed to the rationalization (of the resource).” Lower Mainland fire chiefs and other city councils have also denounced the changes as a service reduction and cite extreme delays for ambulances arriving at downgraded calls. Tuesday, George Papadopoulos, quality and safety director at BCEHS, said first responders are now “unnecessarily” rushing with lights and sirens to 35 per cent of their calls.

Semiahmoo Rotary

PAN staff honoured by LMA Members of the Peace Arch News editorial staff have been honoured with four awards from the Local Media Association. The U.S.-based association – formerly the Suburban Newspapers of America – hands out awards annually to reporters, photographers and editors across Canada at the United States. Two of the awards received by PAN staff are in the same category – best breaking-news story. Reporters Tracy Holmes, Dan Ferguson – who now works at PAN’s sister paper, the Langley Times – and team were second-

place finishers for an October 2012 article on the shooting of Canadian border guard Lori Bowcock. Holmes, Nick Greenizan and team nabbed an honourable mention in the same category, for the April 16, 2013 article on the Boston Marathon bombings, at which several Peninsula residents were present. PAN editor Lance Peverley won a second-place award for best headline – “He lived on the street, but died amid friends” – on an article on the death of well-known White Rock homeless man Ryan

Ashe. Greenizan also won a third-place award for best column writing, for his Reverse Angle column, which touched on topics ranging from sports to the demolition of South Surrey’s Old Curio Shop. For the sixth year in a row, Peace Arch News is also one of three finalists in the general excellence category of the BC & Yukon Community Newspaper Assocation’s Ma Murray Awards, which are set for April 26 in Richmond. Holmes is also a finalist at the Ma Murrays, for her editorial that followed Ashe’s death.

here is no festival more important on the Christian calendar – or more central to Christian beliefs – than Easter. The Crucifixion and the Resurrection are fundamental articles of faith that cross all parochial boundaries and unite all segments of the Christian community. That’s why it’s fitting that most of the Peninsula congregations join together each Good Friday for the annual Meet Me At The Cross and March For Jesus, which will be held tomorrow (8:30-10 a.m.) at Softball City, just beneath the water tower. “It’s the highest point of the Peninsula,” explained Rev.

she said, noting the attack rendered her unable to think, concentrate or read. Soon after, Frasca was clinically diagnosed in Vancouver with Lyme disease. While she was being treated for Lyme, Frasca was also going to a Multiple Sclerosis neurologist who, with an MRI scan, found lesions on her brain. “My MS doctor said we need to wait for more lesions and I said ‘well, we’re not waiting,’”

she recalled. “I was a totally professional career person, I wanted to get back to work the next week.” She has yet to return to her career. Despite treatment, the MRI scans came back showing more and more lesions on her brain.

Las Vegas win for pizzeria

PLANT SALE

Sarah Massah Staff Reporter

Aaron Gehrman is the owner of a popular White Rock pizza joint, but he owes a lot to Chinese food. That’s because until 1986, the family was Jewish-Orthodox and kosher. “There were all these food restrictions. Then in ‘86 my dad discovered Chinese food, so it was all down hillfrom there,” Gehrman laughed. The 31-year-old owner of Emilio Finatti Sicilian Pizzeria grew up surrounded by food and dreamt of owning his own restaurant as a kid – especially after watching the pizza-loving Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Nine years ago, that childhood dream came to fruition with the opening of his Five Corners pizza place, with his food-loving dad, Ray, there to help him every step of the way. And late last month, Gehrman was able to fulfill yet another dream by completing a successful turn at the World Pizza Competitions in Las Vegas, where he and his team took home third place in the international traditional pizza competition. “It was surreal,” Gehrman said about the March 25-27 event. “It was our first time competing and it was so rewarding after the team and I had worked so hard.” With only a limited selection of ingredients to choose from for the traditional category, Gehrman went with a tried and true favourite: pepperoni, using the product he gets from his topsecret independent Abbotsford butcher. “He has a secret recipe for our pepperoni,” Gehrman said. “It was kind of a gamble, but it paid off.” The restaurant itself was a bit of a gamble for Gehrman, a selftaught chef and self-professed foodie, who took over the former location of Gangster Pizza, pouring his life savings into his venture, which he named after

Emilio Finatti owner Aaron Gehrman preps one of his many pizzas. his father’s longtime friend. “It sounded more authentic than Aaron’s pizza,” he admitted. After a bumpy start, business has steadily grown for Gehrman, who still recalls his first few months of being in business. “When I first opened, the community was tremendously supportive. When I first opened, I was doing a pan pizza, and it wasn’t so great. A lot of people who came through said, ‘well, your heart’s in the right place and we really like your energy, so we’ll try you in a couple months,’” he said. “After being in business for

two or three months, we decided to go the traditional route, get rid of the pan and make the pizza on the baker’s stone.” That community support has been the real secret to his success, he said, noting that through word of mouth he has had patrons from as far as Delta and Langley – where he lives – all of whom encouraged him to participate in the Las Vegas competition. “Honestly, I just want to cook and make food that makes people happy,” he said. “To have everything slowly come together, it’s amazing.”

Fisherman honoured for rescue

Surrey man recognized Sheila Reynolds Black Press

Surrey fisherman Paul Murnaghan and a couple of friends were pulling his boat into dock last May after a day on the water when he noticed a police officer approaching. Murnaghan was concerned. Was he about to get a speeding ticket? But that wasn’t the case at all, it turned out. Instead, the RCMP constable asked for Murnaghan’s help and they were quickly back on the Fraser River, heading downstream in search of Mike Hampel’s boat. Hampel and his then-nine-year-old son Bradley were enjoying a day of fishing near Derby Reach in Fort Langley when a submerged log became caught on the anchor line of their 19-foot Bayliner. The line then became entangled in the prop and Hampel was forced to cut it, sending the boat drifting powerless down the fast-flowing Fraser. After been carried down river, Hampel’s boat bounced into a log boom, trapping them against the logs. The force of the current caused the boat to tilt sideways and it was on

the verge of capsizing and throwing Hampel and his son into the freezing, fast-moving river. Hampel had managed to call 911, but admits thoughts of he and his child drowning crossed his mind. “That was one of our fears for sure,� he recalled later. But Murnaghan’s jet boat pulled up just in time. With some skillful maneuvering, he managed to edge his boat bow-to-bow with Hampel’s, allowing them to bring the father and son safely aboard. They were also able to save Hampel’s boat, tying a tow rope to it and pulling it away from the log boom. Murnaghan was among 23 recipients of awards from the Lifesaving Society at the 102nd annual Honour & Rescue Award ceremony – meant to honour heroism and bravery of aquatic rescuers – held on March 29 in Vancouver. Murnaghan received a Silver Medal for Merit, an award which, according to the Lifesaving Society, “acknowledges meritorious service in saving a life during a water rescue.�

The Grade 5 students presented a cheque for $653.13 to the hospital at a school assembly on Feb. 11. The three Langley students – Sonia, Rachel and Jasmine (the parents requested their last names not be printed) – organized a community screening of Despicable Me 2 on Jan. 24, bringing in more than 300 people. “We are very touched and are thankful for what the girls did,” Surrey Memorial’s Yolanda Bouwman said in a

Event chance to boost brand

Vaisakhi ‘good for business’ Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Surrey’s Vaisakhi parade is a boon for local businesses in several ways, according to the Surrey Board of Trade (SBOT). This weekend’s event is one of the surest ways to get your name and your brand out to the public, said Anita Huberman, CEO of the SBOT. It’s only getting better, she said. “It’s a marketing-driven type of parade, where businesses – in the South Asian community especially – have a chance to showcase their specialty,” Huberman said. “In general terms, it’s continued to expand and been generally good for business.” The return on investment is positive, she said. “It’s huge for business to get involved,” Huberman said. “I think over the years, you’ve seen more and more businesses get involved. Even the Cloverdale Rodeo and Exhibition Association has a float.” She says entrepreneurs

in Surrey see the event as a fantastic marketing opportunity. “It’s considered to be ‘the’ parade,” Huberman said, adding that more than 100,000 spectators attended last year. “That is just huge for business to get involved,” she said. There are also spinoffs for retail stores located near the parade route. “We go to Costco, and I know so many other people buy stuff there for their floats, for their booth,” Huberman said. “Grocery stores, Fruiticana, they’re benefiting,” Huberman said. Other businesses that see an uptick in their bottom lines include tent rental stores and outlets that sell items to decorate floats. The Surrey Vaisakhi Parade will be held this Saturday, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., beginning at Gurdwara Dashmesh Darbar Temple, 12885 85 Ave., and winding its way throughout the streets of Newton, between 124 and 128 streets.

Electronics climb to 35 per cent of banned load violations

E-waste tops dumping list Jeff Nagel Black Press

Too many Metro Vancouver residents and businesses are still chucking unwanted electronics in the trash despite them being banned from landfills. Electronic waste made up 35 per cent of all recyclable materials that were found to have been improperly put in the garbage last year, up from 20 per cent in 2010, according to a Metro Vancouver report. Computers, TVs and related electronics were banned from disposal by the regional district a year after depots began collecting them in 2007 for verified recycling, and the e-waste recycling system expanded further to include virtually any item with a battery or a power cord by mid2012. Metro contracts seven independent inspectors to check incoming loads of waste at its transfer stations for banned materials. They issued more than 5,800 violation surcharges against waste haulers who arrived with too high a proportion of recyclables last year. Metro solid waste manager Paul Henderson said he’s not surprised that e-waste has now passed cardboard as the top category of material drawing the most violations. “Our inspectors are now looking for more types of electronics than they were previously,” Henderson said. “That category has gotten broader and broader over time.” The rate of illegaldumping violations climbed from 3.2 per cent of loads checked in 2012 to 3.7 per cent in 2013. A staff report to Metro’s zero-waste committee shows cardboard has declined from 30 per cent of material violations in 2010 to 18 per cent in 2013. Inspectors also report declining amounts of banned paper and yard waste – also subject to well-established bans. Officials say that indicates the overall success of the materialban program in encouraging waste diversion.

Notice of Field Staff Entering Private Property near Ravines and Watercourses The City of Surrey is completing a Ravine Stability Assessment of ravine slopes and channel banks along various watercourses throughout the City. This is part of an ongoing biennial Ravine Stability Assessment. From January 15 to April 30, 2014, representatives of the City’s Consultant may require access through private property to safely inspect these ravines. All field staff working on this project will carry identification and an information letter from the City of Surrey. Residents who see field staff in or near their property can ask for these documents. We appreciate your co-operation in enabling field engineers to enter your property in order to access these ravine slopes, channel banks, and watercourses.

Electronic waste makes up 35 per cent of all recyclables improperly found in the garbage, according to a recent Metro Vancouver report. Paint containers were also banned from the dump in 2011 and have climbed from six to 11 per cent of violations, in part because Metro ordered tougher enforcement. Incoming loads are allowed to contain a maximum of five per

cent banned materials. A total of $453,800 in disposal ban surcharges were levied in 2013. According to the report, commercial haulers were to blame for most of last year’s violations – they collectively had an 8.9 per cent rate of

B R I T I S H

violations. Waste haulers are supposed to watch for banned materials and The violation rate was 3.4 per cent of loads collected by municipal garbage trucks, and 0.6 per cent for residents who dropped off waste at stations themselves.

Happy Smile Dental Clinic At 103-104 14187 62 Ave,

Cheques coming for 240,000 affected by ICBC glitch

Some drivers overpaid

Metro Vancouver is appealing a court decision in favour of the Township of Langley that has thrown into question the regional district’s ability to control urban sprawl. B.C. Supreme Court Judge Neena Sharma last month ruled in favour of Langley, which Metro took to court for rezoning land in breach of the regional growth strategy. “For us, this isn’t a Langley issue,” Metro board chair Greg Moore said. “This ruling is too important to the regional growth

legislation. “It has implications not just for Metro but for every other regional district that has a regional growth strategy.” He said Metro believes the judge didn’t correctly interpret the regional district’s authority under the Local Government Act in deciding Metro’s powers don’t supercede a municipality’s decisions within its boundaries. The ruling’s logic that a rezoning affecting only one municipality can’t be considered regionally significant makes no sense, he added, because no rezoning would ever qualify. Moore said the issue is not the

zoning changes the township wanted – creating a university district with campus housing and shops around Trinity Western University – but that the municipality believed it didn’t have to subject that change to a vote of the regional board, as set out in the regional growth strategy all Metro cities signed. Langley Township Mayor Jack Froese called Metro’s appeal “unfortunate” and predicted the regional district will lose again. “We can’t just lie down and let Metro Vancouver walk all over us,” Froese said. – with files from Dan Ferguson

Region fears ruling thwarts control of sprawl

ICBC expects to pay out $36 million in refunds plus interest of $3 million. It estimates it lost $71 million in underpayments since 2008. The faulty vehicle descriptions affect only optional insurance, not basic rates. ICBC’s board is also appointing an outside auditor to review the error. The error isn’t expected to recur because ICBC’s modernized system will pull the correct description from the vehicle identification numbers, instead of being entered manually by Autoplan agents.

D

ICBC says it accidentally overor under-charged nearly 600,000 of its optional auto insurance customers and will issue refunds with interest averaging $162 to those who paid too much. Most motorists aren’t affected by the glitch, which happened because incorrect descriptions were assigned years ago to some vehicles. The error was uncovered last year with ICBC’s move to a new computer system. About 1.8 per cent of optional insurance customers paid an average of $21 too much per year

as a result and 240,000 drivers are owed cumulative refunds stretching back as far as 2008, according to ICBC. The public auto insurer is updating vehicle descriptions for past years so it can accurately recalculate historic premiums and repay improper charges for the last six years – as far back as its legacy computer system permits. Another 350,000 customers paid less than they should have by about $34 per year on average but ICBC won’t bill them retroactively. Affected drivers are to be notified and receive refund cheques by July.

Garden prep work pays off Preening before you plant is the difference between mediocre and marvelous The cherry trees are in full bloom, daffodils and tulips are seemingly everywhere. The outdoors is beckoning and there’s no place like home. It’s time to get your backyard ready for the sunnier days ahead – get the patio furniture out, use some spray paint to touch up a few dull spots on the deck, and, of course, recreate the garden. Here on the West Coast, we are fortunate that we don’t have to start the garden process over every spring, from scratch, but there are still some duties to perform. West Coast Gardens staff have some great tips to consider, in regard to prepping both the deck and the garden for the warm seasons. Starting with the deck, first things first: remove anything that is on it and give it a good sweep and a spray-down, either with a hose, or better yet, a pressure washer. Then start the furnishing. If you’re looking to upgrade, go with what you know.

The grunt work is half the battle. The better you do your grunt work, the more success you will have later. Jason VanderMey

“The key is to create an outdoor space that is like your indoor space,” says Brenda. “Don’t be afraid to even bring some of your indoor things – your favourite throw, your favourite pillow – out onto the deck. It’s just an extension of your home.” Among the deck fashion trends for this season are poufs; 24” all-weather cubes, that can be used as seats, footrests or even tables. When it comes to the garden, although it’s still a little cold for planting, now is the time to get the garden ready. “Once the nighttime temperature reaches nine or 10C, then you’re OK to plant. But there’s still work to do now,” says West Coast Gardens manager Jason VanderMey. “Right now it’s about getting your soils ready and cleaning up your pots and things. With your soils, get them aired out, add lime. Just get everything prepared so that when you want to plant all you have to do is the final planting. “The grunt work is half the battle. The better you do your grunt work, the more success you will have later. The people who don’t do all the prep, they will only have mediocre success. It’s like asking a child to grow up but just giving him half a sandwich every day.” i see page 32

And when it comes to finally planting the garden? “Low maintenance,” says Jason. “Low maintenance, big-impact colour plants.

Surrey, said the hot new item in his store this year will have berry lovers – particularly those who have limited growing space – champing at the bit. “For anyone doing a berry garden, we have a good source of supply on the Brazelberries,” he said. “They are (potted) plants that were sought after last year but in very limited supply. We have them on the shelf already this year and there’s a really good supply. There’s a blueberry and a raspberry that is compact, as well as an everbearing raspberry – ideal for growing right in their containers, or in the garden. And the one blueberry is said to be an evergreen, so you have yearround foliage on a compact plant that produces fruit.” For the best selection on all the new lines, as well as the staples, get to your local garden centre today.

This Brazelberries raspberry shortcake plant not only looks stunning sitting next to the patio set, but produces fantastic fruit. Brazelberries plants are ideal for green thumbs who do not have the space to create a full berry garden. They come in their own pots and are available at Potters.

SPRING HOME & GARDEN

More tips for garden prep Here are some other suggestions on how you can get your yard and garden ready for the summer: Q Clean your eaves. One of those jobs that is not extremely enjoyable and can easily be forgotten. Also one of those jobs that can be assigned to the older kids, if you have any. Make sure all safety precautions are taken; if being done on a ladder, move the ladder often. One of the most typical injuries when cleaning gutters is falling off ladders because of over-stretching. Reaching out is not a time-saver, but moving the ladder every two feet might be a bone saver. Q Clear your drainage ditches. While junior is cleaning the eaves, you can do the same with any drainage ditches on your property. Leaves and debris naturally gather and clog ditches throughout the winter. Spring rains need adequate runoff, and spring seedlings need soil that drains well. Q Repair your beds. Now is the time to replace any bowed planks or rotted stakes. Touch-ups are easy to do before the planting. Q Top dress beds. Before planting, give your flower beds a good serving of compost (or seasoned manure). No need to dig for this. Nutrients can be set on top of the beds and they will work their way down into the soil, naturally. Q Remove the dead stuff. After a few days without rain, the soil in your garden should be dry enough to start working it. First thing to be done is to remove last year’s remaining vegetation, including the leftover dead crops. Their root systems will be dead (or dormant)

Then rake out the soil and break up the big clots to “awaken” the nutrients. After that, top dressing will get everything in motion for another season of fruitful planting.

Design your deck like a pro The more beautiful and inviting your deck is, the more time you, your family and your friends will spend on it. You spent thousands of dollars to build it; shouldn’t you be getting your money’s worth? Here are a few more tips for customizing your deck: Q Use your levels. If you have a multitiered deck, why not theme the tiers? It’s probably being used that way to a degree already. Specify one level as a dining level. Put the barbecues and dining set together. A lounging level should have its own decor and accessories. Do you have music piped out to the deck from the house? It doesn’t take a lot of time or money to wire a couple of small wall-mount bracket speakers outside to give the yard some added ambience. Just make sure they are wired in a weather-protected area, such as directly under the overhang, away from the elements. Q Privatize your deck. By using raised planters and a few well-placed potted shrubs you can separate your deck from the yard, or give yourself an added measure of privacy from neighboring residences. Outdoor room dividers, if they are colour-co-ordinated to match your deck theme, can be used in a stylish manner to help in the process. Q Cover your floor. There’s nothing saying your deck must remain uncovered. There are plenty of stylish indoor/outdoor carpeting options available these days – far beyond the artificial grass-style that does nothing to enhance a deck. Q Frame your deck. If you have a smaller deck, a trellis frame is an option, giving it an enclosed look and feel.

Renovating Your Home And Wondering What To Do About Fido?

Terry Farrell photo

Gnomes, throw pillows and potted flowers all make excellent deck decor. Q Add art. Whether it be a large, freestanding statue, or smaller pieces of “iron art” attached to a wall, there are options out there that are appealing to the eye. Just make sure it’s the type of art that can withstand the elements. In other words, paintings should stay indoors. Q Brighten up. Lighting up your deck does not have to be an expensive venture. From the solar-powered foot lights, to suspended Chinese lanterns, there are economical options available. Of course, there is always the high-end lighting route as well, from track lighting to wrought-iron sitting lanterns and beyond, that will make your deck the envy of the neighbourhood.

Keep pets from being pests

When pet-proofing a garden, there are two things to consider: keeping the pet away from the plants, and keeping the toxins away from the pet. Everyone wants a healthy garden, but no one wants it to come at the cost of a healthy pet. Pet owners could be inadvertently poisoning Fido in their efforts to make their garden greener. Fertilizer, while great for the yard, wreaks havoc on animals. Ingestion of fertilizers can lead to sickness or worse, death, in our four-legged family members. While it’s not suggested that you don’t fertilize, it is recommended that you keep your pets away from the treated area for a day or two. “Most products nowadays are coated urea so basically you can ‘apply and play’, they claim. But I always feel that it’s best to stay off it, get the stuff watered in and let it dry off again,” said Cam Martin, general manager of Potters garden centre in Surrey. “So 24 hours is a really good rule of thumb.”

Stay out of the garden! Quite often, decorative wire trimming is enough to keep the pets out of the garden. But sometimes that’s not enough. To keep your pets from becoming pests, there are numerous safe and easy solutions. Cats can become a nuisance as the garden grows. They are drawn by the scents of nature, and love to dig and roll in the dirt, not to mention that evilsmelling spray of theirs. There are a few natural ways to prevent feline intrusion, which are harmless to both the plants and the felines. Cats generally do not like the smell of

pungent herbs, such as rosemary or sage. Coffee grounds are said to be an effective deterrent and another solution is to sprinkle cayenne pepper around the cat’s area of choice. Potters has a product called Critter Ridder, that is a pepper-based repellant. For those who don’t like the idea of using pepper to deter animals, Potters also sells Get Off My Garden, a gel-like product with citronella and methyl nonyl ketone as its main active ingredients. Ask your local gardening centre whether it carries the coleus canina, commonly known as the piss-off plant. This plant repels cats naturally, which only makes sense, considering “canina” is latin for “dog meat”. Keep in mind though, that when it comes to animal nature, there is no such thing as a sure bet. “I have had more positive feedback than negative feedback, but I have had mixed reviews,” Martin said, of the piss-off plant. “Some people swear by it and others tell me that their cat actually lies in it. So it’s not foolproof.” Dogs – especially diggers – can be challenging as well, but if you have the space, one idea is to give them their own sandbox to play in. Find an area of your yard that is already a “dead zone” for garden growth and dig a deep hole. Fill it with sand, bury a toy or two in there and before you know it, your digger has been trained to play in his own sandpit. And a little known fact about fleas: they hate the smell of cedar. Use cedar chips as a landscaping accessory to not only beautify your garden and yard, but also keep your pet – and your house – from infestation.

Artists from across Canada and India will showcase work on the Komagata Maru incident.

Surrey Art Gallery exhibit traces sad journey Evan Seal Black Press

Surrey Art Gallery (SAG) is marking the 100-year anniversary of the arrival of the Komagata Maru by showcasing the work of visual artists from across Canada and India. Ruptures in Arrival, Art in the Wake of the Komagata Maru, features painting, conceptual photography, and photo collage imagery – as well as archival images of the Komagata Maru, a chartered Japanese ship which arrived at Vancouver Harbour in 1914 carrying 376 passengers from the Punjab. Due to restrictive Canadian immigration laws at the time, and belief that the passenger list included dangerous political agitators who opposed British rule in India, only 20 of the passengers were allowed entry into Canada. After two months of detention in Vancouver Harbour, the ship was forced to sail back to India, where 19 of the passengers died resisting arrest by British authorities. Through their imagery, 10 artists have explored the incident and aim to create discussion about Canadian history, discrimination, identity and citizenship. Portland-based artist Avantika Bawa uses a large-scale drawing and sculpture to represent the route travelled by the ship and the barriers faced by the passengers. “I really wanted to look at the route since everything was about this journey and what happened because of the journey,” said Bawa. The single lines drawn on canvas represent both the arrival and return routes taken by

the Komagata Maru. The canvas then cascades onto a barricade, giving a sense of the symbolic barriers faced by the passengers. “I also wanted to address the barriers we face at the Canadian and American borders,” Bawa said.

Toronto-based artist Ali Kazimi used threedimensional video and stereoscopic images to show the lives of early South Asian migrants and the issues and conditions in which they lived. “I really wanted to turn

our gaze away from the ship and to remind us that there were people on shore as well,” Kazimi said. “I used the work of American painter Edward Hopper as a point of reference for my work, showing people who

are alone. This sense of alienation is very much a part of the immigration experience.” Surrey artist Jarnail Singh depicts the plight of the passengers through a largescale four-panel painting. The SAG exhibition is

part of the “Komagata Maru 100,” a combined exhibit located at various locations around the Lower Mainland to mark the centennial. Ruptures in Arrival runs until June 15 at Surrey Art Gallery, 13570 88 Ave.

Arts Reporter

or Robert Genn, every painting is part of a much larger picture. Not too long ago, his unflinching gaze took in the patterns and shapes and colours of his mountains and rivers and lush valleys plein air, interpreting them just as he saw them, in masterful incisive line and quickly-delineated areas of light, shade and pigment, on larger canvases or in smaller “sketches.” Now, the canvases are all small, more easy to balance in a crook of his arm on the recliner-chair he refers to as his “horizontal easel.” With his daughter, Sara, working on her own canvases nearby in Genn’s South Surrey studio – and faithful Airedale, Dorothy, lying contentedly at his feet – the internationally known artist concentrates on reproducing views from his mind’s eye, landscapes drawn from a personal memory bank of the magnificence of nature. He has spent years approaching such views, by car, plane, by boat or on foot – across Canada, and all around the globe. And it’s clear from every brushstroke that he has never lost his lifelong sense of wonder at them. Late last year, Genn, 77, was

diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. depressed, times when I’m bugged. Since then, the painter’s awareness I actually get tired of cheering up of his own mortality has been just people who come in here with a as unflinching, just as individual – long face.” and just as matter-of-fact – as his Genn admits his relatively upbeat artistic gaze. philosophical approach to his “With the type of cancer I’ve got, predicament “has to do with my it’s pretty much set that you have attitude about life.” six months to a year,” he says. “It’s “It’s a far easier, less impactful been about six months so far – and thing than a birth,” he observes, I’m not one of although he the one-in-20 ❝I would have preferred to considers the people that has stay on the planet a little winding down of an easy time his life akin to a longer, but I have been here birth in terms of with it. for 77 years.❞ “I’ve been “the things we want coping with that to move onward Robert Genn understanding with – educating and and I’ve been keeping on painting, helping young people, rather than which is actually something I have simply slipping away.” trouble getting stopped.” A big part of that continues Even so, he tires easily, and there to be the twice-weekly series of is ever-present pain and other subscription email “letters” of ideas problems that he can’t minimize; and inspiration for artists, in which regular doses of chemotherapy and his own entries have lately been what he calls “going into the shot augmented by pieces by Sara and barn – that knocks the hell out of reprints of columns. you for a couple of days.” In 14 years of writing the letters, “So I decided to stop doing that he says, he’s come to realize how and go for an oral pill, but that much the world has changed knocks you into a cocked hat.” from when he was first invited to He acknowledges he is “aided and give a talk to the Port Moody Art abetted” by a “particularly tender Association back in the late ’60s, and supportive family who bring doing a “demo” for a handful of me paint, and bring me this and people. that.” “I didn’t even know what a demo “There are times when I’m was,” he chuckles.

When he first started establishing an online presence, with the help and guidance of Sara, he was amazed that his musings – not just advice and encouragement, but also reflections on what it means to be an artist – picked up 7,000-10,000 subscribers in the first week, and within six weeks recorded between 100,000 and 200,000 views. “We’ve changed from a rather limited local phenomenon to a universal wide-ranging phenomenon. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you paint, you’re part of a great thing. It isn’t just about being part of the Italian Renaissance – it’s a universal need and phenomenon.” The basic message he has to offer to artists hasn’t changed – keep painting, keep creating, keep growing. “You’ve got to get up in the morning and fight your devils; try to do better today than you did yesterday. If you let that end, you’re going to be disappointed. “The biggest thing is the appreciation of the magnificent universe we have around us. Being a painter, particularly, is beyond belief as a way of honouring that. Painting – particularly painting on location – is almost like prayer. It’s defined who I am and what I am.”

Genn wryly reflects that his early career as a commercial artist, “designing labels for soup cans,” lasted barely a week. “I don’t remember now whether I handed in my notice or whether I was fired.” When he decided he would live as an artist or not at all, opportunities materialized that allowed him to make a living doing what he loved – and he hasn’t looked back. Whatever else people have to do with their lives, they must take time to pursue their artistic selves, he says. “Travel, take workshops, see the world – honour the world. The joy is that life goes on and a new generation comes in to take over.” Genn reflects that having some finite limit on life should come as no surprise; we all face an ending at some point, and even the healthiest of us could be knocked down by a truck tomorrow. “I feel I’ve still got something to contribute – having that taken away from you is saddening,” he admits. “But I’m not really afraid of it. I’m not afraid of the ‘gods’ – either Eastern or Western. “I would have preferred to stay on the planet a little longer, but I have been here for 77 years. “And I could be fooled, and be around for a little while longer yet.”

No hesitation to run prestigious event after last year’s bombing

Runners return to Boston Marathon Nick Greenizan

And such resilience will be on display Monday in Massachusetts, when the famed Boston Marathon returns to the streets a year after the 2013 bombings killed three people and injured hundreds more. Eighteen Surrey runners are registered for this year’s race, including South Surrey’s Ray Baker, Alan Benson, Marc Fontaine, Linda Garrett, Ian Herron, Dee Makepeace, Jim Millington, Gayle Robinson, Lynne

istance runners are made of tough stock. They slog through mile after mile – often through inclement weather – with little regard for aching muscles, blisters or shortness of breath. They are not easily kept down, in other words.

Spence and Bert Van Donkersgoed. Many on the list were at last year’s event, including Baker – a Surrey doctor – who was about 200 metres from the first explosion in 2013. “I was about as close to the finish line as they’d let me get,” he said. However, despite that experience, he says he had no hesitation signing up to run again.

“No, not at all. If anything, there’s even a stronger feeling to go back,” he said. “You want to go back and express support for Boston and to stand up to terrorists and say, ‘It didn’t work.’” No Peninsula runners or spectators were hurt in last year’s attack but it was nevertheless a terrifying experience for all present. i see page 44

Pan Pacific Swim Championships also on schedule this summer

Caldwell qualifies for Commonwealth Games Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Hilary Caldwell is preparing for another busy summer. After an impressive performance at Canadian Swimming Trials earlier this month in Victoria, the 23-year-old Pacific Sea Wolves swimmer – who now lives and trains in Victoria with the national team – qualified to represent Canada at both the Commonwealth Games, set for Glasgow, Scotland in July, and Pan Pacific Swim Championships, planned for August on Australia’s Gold Coast. Making the cut for the national team wasn’t as easy as simply ending up on the podium in a specific discipline in Victoria, either. This year, Swimming Canada has implemented new selection policies that focus more on choosing swimmers that coaches feel have the best chance to fare well internationally – both now and in the future. Caldwell’s inclusion on the team had much to do with her bronzemedal performance in the women’s 200-m backstroke at last summer’s FINA World Championships in Barcelona. She was the first Canadian to medal in that event since 1978. “Our selection policies this year for both teams were based on world standards,” said Swimming Canada high performance director John Atkinson in a release. “The established figures on the team like Katerine Savard, Ryan Cochrane and Hilary Caldwell will ensure there is experience. “As they continue to progress… the team is poised to continue its progression to Glasgow and Gold Coast. It’s all part of the journey we have to the Olympic Games in Rio in 2016.” In addition to continuing to improve in her best event, the 200-m backstroke, Caldwell said she’s out to prove last season’s performance in the pool was no fluke, while also improving her time in the 100-m backstroke. “One of the improvements I want see this year is my 100-m backstroke be faster,” said Caldwell, who represented Canada at the 2012 London Olympics. “I would love to break the minute barrier. In the 200 (metres) I have to

Weinberger was on the podium again last week. The 2012 Olympic bronze medallist took silver in the men’s 10-km race at the Fran Crippen Cup in Fort Myers, Fla. The competition was also a qualifying event for the Pan Pacific Championships, but Weinberger had already made the cut for that event after a 10th-place finish at a FINA World Cup event last week in Mexico. In Florida, American swimmer Alexander Meyer

won gold, in a time of one hour, 52 minutes and 47.39 seconds, while Weinberger clocked a time of 1:53:22.60. Weinberger led for much of the race, but Meyer overtook him in the latter stages. And while frustrated to settle for silver, he applauded Meyer’s strategy. “It’s not just the speed and strengths, but the smarts, too,” Weinberger said. “He knows there’s one side I like to breathe on so he gets on the other side so I can’t see him.”

Marathon ‘will probably be one of the safest places on earth’ i from page 41 At the time, Benson – a South Surrey lawyer – recalled “a massive explosion…this huge ball of smoke.” What followed, he said, was “pandemonium everywhere.” The bombing touched off a dramatic days-long manhunt for a suspect, who was eventually found in a boat being stored in the backyard of a Watertown, Mass. home. Dzhokar Tsarnaev is currently in custody, awaiting a federal trial on charges he helped plan and execute the bombing. This year, with the marathon’s security improvements – of which there are many – Baker doesn’t expect any similar issues.

A memorial for the three victims who died at last year’s marathon. “With all they’ve done, it’ll probably be one of the safest places on earth,” he said. Baker’s feelings toward the race

are similar to many marathon runners. In fact, interest in running this year’s marathon was so great that organizers increased the field

by 9,000 – to a total of 36,000 runners. Also, runners who were unable to finish last year’s race were invited back without having to re-qualify. “Everybody gets excited for it, especially this year considering all that has happened. We figure the spectators will be out in record numbers, too, to show their support,” said Baker, who will be running his sixth consecutive Boston Marathon. “It’s going to be very memorable, a once-in-lifetime experience.” Benson, who last year had already crossed the finish line in advance of the bombings, said he has “mixed feelings” on returning, but never wavered in registering again. “You’re happy and sad,” he said,

adding that his wife and daughter will attend the event with him. “You think about it when you’re out running sometimes, and it can be emotional, but I didn’t think (about not going). “You can’t destroy an event like this.” Though this year’s event will be an emotionally charged one, most in the South Surrey group were excited to simply focus on running again. “I’m not expecting to break any records or anything, but it’ll be good to be out there, just chugging away,” Herron said. Still, memories of 2013 remain. “It’s all still very vivid – it’s something that will be permanently etched in my mind,” Baker said.

There’s no better time than now to embrace your inner motorcyclist and have the time of your life. Alexandra Straub

You don’t have to start on the road Many of the top road racers in the world didn’t start on the pavement. They started in the dirt. Why? Because it teaches you how to control a bike in less than ideal traction environments. Also, if you fall, it doesn’t hurt as much! You can certainly get your feet wet when it comes to learning clutch and brake control on a “softer” surface, too. Furthermore, you don’t need a learner’s permit if you are riding off road. When and if you want to transition to the street riding, you’ll need it for that. Check out Popkum Motor Park’s Lessons/Training (www.popkummotorpark.com) program for all ages, as well as the BC Off Road Motorcycle Association’s website (www.bcorma.ca) for upcoming MSF Dirt Bike Schools. Another perk to starting to build your bike confidence on the dirt, training programs aren’t as expensive. So, this is me, the little white angel on your shoulder whispering, “Go on, get on two wheels!” But remember, safety is paramount. Take the test, go to school and thank me later. alexandra.straub@drivewaybc.ca

It was raining one day during my test drive and as I stopped at a light I felt the car sway back and forth with the wipers, I quickly dismissed it for a big truck driving by but it was at every stop. I turned them on fully and the car rocked back and forth with every swipe. I have heard about soft suspension but really? If it is a small crossover vehicle you are looking for, and like the

Fines are fine; stats deceive

People that talk and text on their hand-held smartphones while driving are not nearly as smart as their technology of choice. There you go; I have made my position clear on the current red-hot driving topic of the day in the letters pages of every newspaper and on radio talk shows coast to coast. However, that does not mean I am offering my unqualified support for the countrywide torrent of get-even-tougher legislation, designed to pick the pockets of delinquent drivers. Currently in BC, the fine is $167 and last year police here issued 51,000 tickets for distracted driving. Victoria knows a vote winner when it sees one and it is pondering big fine hikes and additional demerit points. The local action comes on the heels of Ontario introducing legislation last month that increases fines from the already high $300 to $1,000. Fanning the public outrage, B.C. Attorney General Suzanne Anton announced that distracted driving is killing more British Columbians than impaired driving. Forgive my cynicism, but I really question the sudden rush of statistics showing how heinous and deadly a crime this is. I have always advocated for hands-free calling while driving and figured “driving without due care and attention” was a sufficiently good catch-all charge for those causing a collision during hands-on operation of a cellphone. The fine is $368. When I began writing on this topic about five years or so ago, there were no such statistics available.

Mazda2: Add a little â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;zoom zoomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to your life Mazdaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first foray into the Canadian sub-compact market segment was the 2011 Mazda2, an inexpensive little car that exceeded the quality expectations of most buyers. It was launched in Europe, Japan and Australia in 2007 and won 48 automotive awards, including â&#x20AC;&#x153;2008 World Car of the Yearâ&#x20AC;?, prior to its arrival in Canada. Mazda2 comes in just one body style, a four-door hatchback. Considering its diminutive proportions, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of doors and â&#x20AC;&#x153;easy accessâ&#x20AC;? is a big part of this small carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charm. The original trim lines offered were GX, GS and a top-priced Yozora edition, which was not sold in the U.S. and limited to 500 units in Canada. The GS trim upgrade includes air conditioning, automatic headlamps, cruise control, rain-sensing wipers,

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Cleverly crafted automobile with a unique body design infused with Mazdaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;fun to driveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; engineering philosophy.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Bob McHugh

keyless entry, trip computer, leatherwrapped steering wheel with audio controls, cloth door trim, sport-style cloth seats with red piping, body-colour door handles and mirrors, chrome tailpipe finisher, side sill extensions, body-colour rear spoiler, exterior temperature gauge, fog lights, silver finish interior accents and six speakers. The Yozora, which means â&#x20AC;&#x153;night skyâ&#x20AC;? in Japanese, is actually a GX trim with air conditioning and a convenience package. Unique theme additions include its black exterior finish with decals, a spoiler, a chrome tailpipe, floor mats and 16-inch alloy wheels with

performance tires. The Yozora package also comes with a spare set of winter tires mounted on 15-inch steel wheels. Power is provided by a 1.5-litre fourcylinder engine linked to either a fivespeed manual or a four-speed automatic transmission. The small gas engineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 100-horsepower output may sound meek, however, it makes the lightweight Mazda2 surprisingly quick. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a silky, smooth free-revving little engine that also emits a nice, sporty rasp from its exhaust at high engine speeds. While thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing wrong with the four-speed automatic transmission, there is a noticeable decrease in overall

performance, plus an increase in fuel consumption. The manual can get 6.8 L/100 km in the city and 5.6 L/100 km on the highway. The automatic is rated at 7.5 L/100 km in the city and 6.0 L/100 km on the highway. Driver sight lines in the Mazda2 are particularly impressive. Its big side mirrors are more visible due to a lowered window belt line at the A-pillar and the low-cut design of the rear window also aids rear vision when backing up. In addition, Mazda uses overlapping shingle-style rear-seat head restraints to allow the driver an unobstructed view out the extra large rear window. The Mazda2 was unchanged for 2012, except for a minor improvement in fuel efficiency with the four-speed automatic transmission and the deletion of the Yozora edition. The 2013 edition came

with a new USB audio input as standard equipment, but otherwise there were no significant changes. It is not a big seller in the U.S., so Consumer Reports owner feedback is incomplete. However, the reliability ratings for Mazda2 have generally been better than average. Crash safety ratings are a mixed bag. Although the overall rating is good, both side- and rear- impact results were less than perfect. As you might expect, being small and light is not an advantage when the other vehicle in an impact is big and heavy. Not just another fuel-efficient little commuter car, Mazda2 is a cleverly crafted automobile with a unique body design infused with Mazdaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;fun to driveâ&#x20AC;? engineering philosophy. bob.mchugh@drivewaybc.ca

Higher penalties not likely to deter majority of reprobate drivers â&#x20AC;ş from page 48 It was all anecdotal because, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face it, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an offence very visible to other drivers. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always seemed to me that drivers who talk and text are reckless risktakers, who run red lights, follow too closely and make dangerous lane changes even without a phone in their hand. My point being that when they crash while performing one of the preceding illicit manoeuvres with phone in hand itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little too convenient to blame it all on operation of the device. Much of the current public debate was spurred by the revelation that a serial offender in Vancouver racked up 26 tickets and fines of $4,300 for distracted driving since 2010. He may be the pinup boy for those seeking tougher penalties, but interestingly, it appears he never once caused an accident during the time he was caught in cellular action.

The law is in force and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve no problem in accepting it, but letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not kid ourselves into thinking this will stop idiots such as this overly chatty man from continuing to take risks on the road that threaten us all. The fines are already high enough to deter regular drivers who are tempted

Confessions of a Curber I guess you could say I was addicted. Only my drug of choice wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t coke or meth. No - it was the thrill of getting away with it all. And the easy cash, of course. Throwing the camper into that last deal was a great marketing idea. And, like last time, I decided to branch out again. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much more than just cars! This time I decided to go with a motorcycle. I purchased it off the internet â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I guess you could call it a curber-to-curber transaction. Oh, of course I knew every trick in the book by now. The seller gave me my old story and said that he was the real owner. Did I care? Not a chance. It was a nice Harley. And, it was a steal. I knew I could flip it for more. Why? Because I was a better marketer. But I needed to do it fast. And, I had to make sure I had a buyer that was naive enough not to do a lien check through carproof.com, or the province (bcregistryservices. gov.bc.ca). As usual, I put up a generic, one-line Craigslist ad. With a price like mine, I had a buyer within an hour. I made sure the Harley looked its best. I polished it until it sparkled and filled it with gas. Hey, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a few bucks? Then I ran into a small problem. I found out that my seller was the real owner. Wow. But he sold me a vehicle that was about to be repossessed.

Fortunately, he was in such a hurry that he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make me do the transfer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so it was still in his name. No big deal. Bridging* was my friend. I just used his name and hoped my buyer would never ask me for ID. And I was right. The buyer smelled a bargain and took the bait like fish. He thought I was the fool! No lien check, no ID check. Just cash. I was home free, again. And the best part? When the bailiff came for the motorcycle, he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know my name.

*Bridging â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A trick that curbers use to keep their identity secret. Curbers will pay more for a vehicle from an unscrupulous wholesaler or broker if they are not required to immediately put the vehicle in their name. This keeps their name out of the vehicle registry and makes them impossible to locate when deals go bad. Breaking the law is never a concern for them.

Jeep Cherokee Grand enough without diesel The introduction of the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee showcased the direction of the new Fiat-Chrysler partnership. It went on to win more awards than any other SUV; in fact, I chose it as one of my favourite vehicles that year. Sales have been strong for not only Jeep but the entire Chrysler group. Freshness has been put into each new vehicle and this latest 2014 EcoDiesel version is another example. For this model year, the Grand Cherokee gets a refreshed front and rear, plus The already interior tweaks and a thrifty capable and luxurious diesel under the hood.

‘‘

gasoline versions are less expensive and come with all the regular Grand Cherokee goodness.

Looks

Mercedes ML, BMW X5, Audi Q5 or a very nicely equipped VW Touareg. It is a very nice truck, with as much diesel power and efficiency as the competition, but the German brands have been at the whole diesel thing a lot longer and are a known entity in the market. The Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel would be a very easy choice if it were about $50,000, not $58,000. If you drive a lot or tow, the diesel might be worth it, but as it stands now the already capable and luxurious gasoline versions are less expensive and come with all the regular Grand Cherokee goodness. zack.spencer@drivewaybc.ca

The Lowdown Power: 3.0L turbocharged diesel V6 with 420 lb-ft. of torque Fill-up: 9.8L/7.0L/100km (city/highway) Sticker price: $58,000-$62,000

The most noticeable updates for 2014 include a thinner front grille and narrower front headlights with LED accents. This really makes the latest model pop; especially Zack Spencer when you compare it to the last model. The EcoDiesel option is only available in two trim levels, and this is an expensive vehicle. The Overland is the cheapest diesel and it starts at roughly $58,000 – $3000 more than a V6 model but the same price as the V8. The top of range Summit diesel starts at $62,000. In comparison, the base VW Touareg diesel starts at $55,000 but most of the other German mid-sized SUVs with a diesel – like the ML from Mercedes or the X5 from BMW – also start in the low $60,000 range.

2014

One of the biggest changes at Chrysler has been the attention to detail now placed on interior design and refinement. The latest U-connect computer interface is one of the best in the business; many high-end makers could learn a thing or two from Chrysler. The large 8.4-inch screen is one of the biggest on the market and it is very quick to the touch. Going from one function to the next is logical and responsive. Pairing a smartphone takes less than 30 seconds and the best feature is the map screen, which enables the embedding of a picture in the same way as picture-in-picture TV does. The dash is covered in stitched leather and the cabin overall is simple and elegant. All EcoDiesel models come with leather seats and the back seats can even be heated.

Inside

The biggest change for 2014 is the introduction of an allnew 3.0-litre direct inject turbocharged V6 diesel engine along with an eight-speed automatic. With 420 pound-feet of torque, this engine rockets away from a light and cruises effortlessly on the highway. There is a big premium to get this engine over a V6, or lower trim level V8 gasoline versions, but there are some compelling reasons to choose it. Fuel economy is number one. This heavy truck is rated at 9.8 L/100km in the city and only 7.0L on the highway. With aggressive driving and mostly city, I averaged 12L. I did notice on highway runs that the fuel economy improved radically and quickly. The towing capacity of the EcoDiesel is the same as the 5.7-litre Hemi V8 – 7,200 lb. – but this truck gets substantially better fuel economy. For those that drive a lot without a trailer, the improvement in fuel economy is something to factor in. If you don’t drive a lot each year, the diesel option might not be worth the added cost.

Conducting an experiment at PortLiving’s Midtown By Kerry Vital

Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant neighbourhood is rapidly becoming the hottest place to live, and developer PortLiving is capitalizing on that popularity with Midtown, a mixed-used low-rise development that will also offer commercial space on the street level. For the next three months, PortLiving is hosting the Midtown Experiment, where businesses can open a pop-up

shop for a week to gauge how popular they will be to local residents. “The Midtown Experiment is an incredibly positive way to bring life and vibrancy to this emerging area, and to experiment to better know the types of businesses that the community will welcome and frequent,” says Midtown Director of Living Robert Vrooman. “We know there will be a lot of demand from retail partners to occupy the space, but we feel it is just as important to listen to the needs of the community.”

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

Midtown will be situated on Broadway between St. George Street and Carolina Street. The four-storey building will hold one- and two-bedroom condominium homes as well as two three-bedroom concrete townhomes. Among the beautiful features at Midtown will be private covered patios, oversized windows, engineered hardwood floors and elegant quartz countertops complemented by a glass tile backsplash in the kitchen. The bathrooms feature in-floor radiant electric heating and glass accent tiles in the bathtub and shower surrounds. Curb appeal is never in short supply at Midtown, with its brick-clad exterior and communal elevated courtyard, perfect for visiting with your neighbours. For more information about the residences at Midtown, visit www.livingmidtown.com. Information about the Midtown Experiment can be found at www.chinatownexperiment.com/midtownexp.

Among the gorgeous features at Lakewood’s The Heights are gourmet kitchens and oversized windows that let the natural light pour in. The Heights is just minutes from Morgan Crossing and several other amenities, making it the perfect place for families and couples alike.

Taste and style at Lakewood’s The Heights By Kerry Vital

Life is extraordinary at The Heights, Lakewood’s townhome development in Surrey’s Grandview Heights that offers not only amazing homes but also a location that’s second-to-none. “The location is phenomenal,” says sales manager Ann Sonnenberg. “You’re a 10-minute walk from the Shops at Morgan Crossing, and there’s a brand-new elementary school two blocks from here.” The Grandview Heights neighbourhood also has leisure opportunities, plenty of restaurants and easy access to transit and major highways, making commuting easy. The Heights is located in a quiet section of the neighbourhood, making it perfect for families and couples alike. The 39 townhomes, ranging from 1,364 to 2,095 square feet, are available in a range of two- and three-bedroom floorplans. The exterior has plenty of curb appeal, with meticulously landscaped grounds and front doors with heritage-style raised panels and

glass. Some plans include a ground floor concrete patio and a double garage. Inside, nine-foot ceilings and oversized windows combine for a spacious feeling, while sleek laminate flooring on the main level is complemented by decorative crown moulding and designer lighting fixtures. Homeowners are able to choose between two colour schemes (Vanilla Bean and Chocolate Expresso), making it easier to put your own stamp on your space. The kitchen is fit for a gourmet with stainless-steel appliances, elegant quartz countertops and a ceramic tile backsplash. Pot lights in the kitchen and nook are a convenient touch that demonstrates Lakewood’s focus on the homeowner, and the custom-designed cabinetry with solid wood shaker-style doors lends more than a touch of style to the room. Most plans also feature a pantry in the kitchen for even more convenience. The bathrooms can easily be described as blissful, with shaker cabinets with solid maple doors, designer faucets and accessories, fullwidth mirrors, ceramic floor tiles and quartz countertops. The main bathroom holds a soaker tub surrounded by designer ceramic tile, while the ensuite features a shower with a semi-frameless glass enclosure and hisand-hers sinks (in most plans.) Many plans also include a main floor powder room with elegant laminate flooring.

Each home has a gas outlet for a barbecue, perfect for outdoor entertaining, and every yard is enclosed. For larger gatherings, homeowners will have access to an outdoor amenity space with a community garden. “Lakewood always builds quality homes,” says Sonnenberg. “Some are available to move in to tomorrow; we also have some Phase 2 homes that will be available between now and the end of June.” Homes at The Heights start at $359,900 for a two-bedroom-and-den home. For more information, visit www.theheightsliving.ca, call 778-545-8737 or visit the showhomes at 2845 and 2855 156th Street, Surrey, open daily except Friday between 12 and 5 p.m.

OBITUARIES

Gwendolyn Juanita Oswald (nee Ellis) November 13, 1922 - April 5, 2014

Gwen passed away peacefully on April 5th in White Rock, BC at the age of 91. Gwen found great comfort and strength in her faith and now all those who loved her take comfort knowing there is one more angel above. Born in Calgary, Alberta to Victor and Myrtle Ellis, Gwen was an excellent student and immediately began working for the Hudson’s Bay Company after graduating high school. She rose to become Manager of various departments as well as a Buyer. She also worked in Human Resources hiring and training new employees. She was later moved to Edmonton and held similar positions. Her fondness for Calgary and her love for her family and friends ultimately drew her back to Calgary where she sold advertising for the North Hill News until her retirement. Gwen was a long time member of Central United Church, and the Calgary Winter Club, and she enjoyed playing golf and bridge. Whether it was food and games at home, or visits to the CWC, or the Stampede, Gwen (or Gwennie) was always full of energy to entertain visiting family. She was a sports fan, particularly her favourite Calgary Stampeders, and she had a deep fondness for ballet. Gwen also enjoyed her opportunities to travel -- buying trips to New York, road trips across the Rockies, vacationing with friends and family in England and Hawaii were some highlights. Gwen was very devoted to her parents, visiting them daily until their death, after which she moved to White Rock where she became a member of Crescent United Church, played in a bridge club, and helped to babysit her grand niece and nephews. Even in declining health Gwen delighted in keeping track of all the family’s activities and always wanted to do special things for the people she loved. She could also be relied upon to regularly spoil the family pets. Gwen was pre deceased by her brother Grant Ellis and sister-in-law Verna, her exhusband Ed Oswald, and brother-in-law Gordon White. She is survived by sister Pat White (Paddy) and several nieces and nephews with whom she was very close and much loved and will be greatly missed by all. No services by request.

JOHNSTON, Ina Caroline (Bredin) July 16, 1921 – April 8, 2014 Ina Caroline Johnston, 92, of White Rock, BC, passed into the loving arms of her Saviour on April 8, 2014. Her husband, Robert, predeceased her in 1988. Ina was born in Firdale, MB on July 16, 1921. She was the 5th of 6 children born to Jock and Carrie Bredin. Her childhood was filled with wonderful, rich memories centering around siblings, extended family, “the farm”, and many, many visitors frequenting the Bredin farm. Even in the hardest of times there was always room for one more around the huge dining room table. After high school, Ina moved to Winnipeg MB where she met and married Robert, “Bob”, Johnston. As Bob spent his entire career with the RCAF, they moved from base to base across Canada where Ina spent her entire career working for the Federal Government. She rose in position with the Gov’t until she retired in 1980 with the equivalent civilian rank of Warrant Officer. Ina enjoyed respect and regard in every position she held. While Ina was a true career woman, her passion was for her church and family. She extended that Bredin sense of caring beyond her own family to include nieces and nephews, some of whom lived with her and Bob for differing periods of time. Upon retirement, she and Bob immersed themselves into the lives of their daughter and granddaughters spending countless hours joining the Laskowskis in everyday life and many trips. Son-in-law, Dr. William Laskowski, welcomed them always. In later years, Ina enjoyed a close relationship with great grandchildren as well. Ina is survived by daughter Carol Laskowski (Dr. William) of Marco Island FL; granddaughters and families: Kristin Perez (Manuel), Christian and William of Pasadena CA; and Carmen Donato (Vincent), Alessandro, Ava and Marco of Tampa FL. “Mom, Grandma, Aunty Grandma, Aunt Ina” will be sadly missed by all of us. She was a wonderful, special Godly woman. Warmest thanks to Ina’s incredibly competent, loving, compassionate caregiver of nearly 4 years, Maribel Estillore; and Drs. Grant Gibbings and Alan Pretty for many years care. Thank you, Dr. Gibbings, for being with us every step of the way at the end…you kindness will never be forgotten. Funeral service to be held at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre, 14831-28 Ave., Surrey, BC V4P 1P3 on Tues. April 22, 2014 at 1:00PM. Burial to follow with a reception immediately after. Viewing one half hour before the service.

PRICE, Joyce (nee Culley) Jan 23, 1925 - April 7, 2014 Joyce lived a very full life right up to her peaceful passing at Peace Arch Hospital with family at her side. As a young girl she grew up in Dunbar and attended Lord Kitchener and Lord Bing schools. Social times with her classmates were more important than her studies. At 19 Joyce married her best friend Trevor. They spent 70 loving and adventurous years working, traveling and relaxing together. She was an artist in fabrics, music, and painting; specializing in ‘life drawings’. Her family was brought up in Dunbar along with an ever-growing group of lifetime friends called the ‘Mayfair Gang’. Joyce was active at Knox United Church and was the leader of the Hi-C Teen Group. In 1972 Joyce and Trev moved to South Surrey and much of her family followed soon after. She continued to excel humbly at painting, playing the organ, ukulele, spoons and singing in the Friday Friendship Choir. She loved to relax and socialize at ‘Camp’ on Freeman Beach, Pt. Roberts; eating crab, hunting for agates, enjoying sunsets on her deck and having her family enjoy the beach with her. Predeceased by her parents Florence and Charles Culley, siblings Lesley, Gordon and Erma. Joyce is survived by her husband Trevor, her dog Bonnie, sons John (Bev), David (Anne), grandchildren Jenni, Chris (Jacqueline), Will (Aynsley), Cassie and Lisa (Michael), great grandsons Jacob, Owen and Jack, cousin Bill Walsh and nephew Ted Culley. Joyce, Mom, Nanny, Great-nanny, we miss you and the joy you gave us. You are a model of a life well lived to all who met you. Celebration of life will be held at the White Rock Baptist Church Fri. May 9 at 1:00. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Union Gospel Mission will be gratefully received. Dedications and memories can be posted at victoryfuneralcentre.ca

STECH, Muriel (Audrey) passed away April 6, 2014 in Nanaimo at the golden age of 95. Born in Vancouver on May 30, 1918 to Bert and Jennie McDonald, the family moved to Telkwa where they resided until Audrey was four years old and then moved to Abbotsford where she lived her childhood and teenage years. She was very close to her siblings, Beverley Stowe ( Robert) and Jack McDonald (Myrt) who both passed away in recent years. Audrey married John Frederick Stech in 1944 and had three boys Brian, Daryl and Murray while living in Woodfibre, near Squamish. John passed away in 1969 and Audrey moved with her boys to Ladner where she went back to university and night school and worked so hard to get her teaching degree to support the family she loved so very much. She taught and nurtured special needs children until she retired in1983 and relocated to White Rock where she enjoyed family gatherings, cooking, walking, paper tole and became a founding member of the White Rock Quilters Guild, where She crafted and donated hundreds of quilts to premature babies. Audrey was a loving wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother and great grandmother. Her warm smile, compassion, sense of humour, loving nature and enduring strength will be sorely missed by sons Brian (Dorothy), Daryl (Colleen) and Murray (Rosalie), grandchildren, David (Bev), Diana (Jeff), John (Meagan) and Kathryn (Mike) and great grandchildren Isabelle and Karissa. Mom’s life was her family as she always put family needs ahead of her own. Anyone who knew our mom was a better person for it. Audrey will now be reunited in heaven with the love of her life John Frederick Stech and will continue her watch over those she loved. A private family burial is occurring at Capilano View Cemetery at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation in memory of Audrey Stech.
