‘We’re determined to stop the violence’ Kevin Diakiw & Tracy Holmes

Wednesday, police confirmed that several witnesses called 911 around 1 a.m. April 15 to report an exchange of gunfire between a red pickup and a grey SUV westbound on 66 Avenue at 128 Street. Shell casings were recovered from the scene. Police have no evidence that anyone was injured, and have not conclusively linked the incident to more than a dozen others logged since March 9 – three in Delta, 17 in Surrey.

Black Press

A spree of shooting incidents in Surrey and Delta that has resulted in several uncooperative victims is being blamed on a drug turf war. And just 12 hours after authorities from both municipalities hosted a press conference on the issue Tuesday, the incident tally climbed another notch.

However, “it appears to be along the same line as the others,” Cpl. Bert Paquet told Peace Arch News. Tuesday afternoon, Surrey RCMP Chief Supt. Bill Fordy and Delta deputy Chief Lyle Beaudoin announced that two groups are responsible for the spate of violence. “The groups are of South Asian and Somalian descent,” Fordy told reporters. “We believe these two groups are competing over

drug turf and have chosen to resolve their differences in a way that jeopardizes public safety. “While both the victims and suspects in these cases are determined to settle their differences outside the law, we are determined to stop the violence.” Between 5 a.m. last Friday and 1 a.m. Wednesday alone, six incidents were logged. i see page 4

Investigators provide little information since Dec. 13 attack in park

Tragic death spurs mother to action Melissa Smalley Staff Reporter

Every so often, June Iida will see a group of teens walking down the street and, for a split second, expect to see her son among them. It’s been four months since her only child, Dario Bartoli, was killed after an early-morning attack in South Surrey, and Iida said at times, it still doesn’t feel real. “He was really funny, a very humorous boy,” Iida recalled of the popular 15-year-old with a “heart of gold.”

“He was very positive all the time. Everybody looked up to him… If you talk to any one of his friends, every single one will say ‘Dario was my best friend.’” Details of the Dec. 13 attack – and the subsequent investigation – have been scarce. Police suggest an “alcohol-fuelled” altercation took place in or near Bakerview Park at 18 Avenue and 154 Street, leaving Dario with critical injuries. Dario, an Earl Marriott student, was transported to Peace Arch Hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries later that morning.

A second teen, who was with Dario at the time, was not injured. After repeated requests for an update on the investigation ever since, an IHIT spokesperson told Peace Arch News Wednesday the investigative team would be meeting this week to discuss what new information they can share. Iida said she tries to not let the apparent lack of progress in the investigation frustrate her, instead focusing her energy on what she describes as “Dario’s work.” i see page 8

White Rock city council approved its deputy-mayor rotation list this week, with one councillor noticeably absent from the list and no public explanation on the matter from the mayor. Coun. David Chesney was the only member of council not included on the rotation list tabled at Monday’s city council meeting. And though he wasn’t addressed by name during open discussions of the list, a fellow councillor expressed disappointment and did not support its approval. “I think that all members of council deserve the right to have the deputy-mayor rotation,” Coun. Helen Fathers said. “I think it’s unfair to say the least, and I will not be supporting it.” Fathers was interrupted by Mayor Wayne Baldwin, who warned the discussions on the deputy-mayor list were made in-camera, and not to be further discussed in public. Chesney later told Peace Arch News he could not comment about why he wasn’t on the list because discussions were behind closed doors. i see page 4

White Rock missing out on $80,000 annually, proponent says

Metered dog tags urged for promenade Melissa Smalley Staff Reporter

White Rock dog owners are again appealing to the city to lift its ban on pooches on the promenade, after presenting city council with an idea for metered licences. Mike Armstrong of Dog Owners Group (DOG) returned Monday evening to present a new idea that he said would help “improve vitality and tourism” on Marine Drive. Armstrong proposed configuring existing parking meters on White Rock Beach to include a dog-licence option – something he confirmed with the manufacturer could eas-

However, only 682 residents have paid for dog tags this year – totalling $17,000 –  meaning the city is missing out on upwards of $80,000 in revenue. He said that if the promenade was opened

Sliding Canadian dollar ‘less incentive’ for Americans to come north

Returns higher here

Cross-border shopping takes a dive

Locals focus on plebiscite

Jeff Nagel Black Press

Fewer B.C. residents are driving into the U.S. now that the loonie no longer goes as far south of the border. New data for January, February and March from the Canada Border Services Agency shows there were nearly 14 per cent fewer trips by southbound Canadians at Lower Mainland border crossings compared to the same months of 2014, and a nearly 20 per cent drop from 2013. The loss of appetite for cross-border shopping was most apparent at the Aldergrove crossing, where trips were down 32 per cent from a year ago, and at Abbotsford-Huntington, which was down 18 per cent, while the decline was about eight per cent at the Peace Arch and Point Roberts crossings. “This is tough sledding for the Whatcom County guys,” SFU marketing professor Lindsay Meredith said. “They’ll be suffering big time.” Retailers in northern Washington depend heavily on Lower Mainland shoppers, he said, and their local governments, in turn, need the resulting flow of sales taxes to maintain services.

He noted the drop in southbound road trips Startup said he’s less sure Americans will come closely mirrors the dive of the Canadian dollar. north because of the dollar differential, noting The loonie is currently worth just over 80 they don’t follow currency changes as closely as cents U.S. and has dipped to as low as 78 in Canadians. “It’s interesting that when the Americans recent weeks.

More than 235,000 ballots have now been received by Elections BC in the Metro Vancouver transit plebiscite, or 15.1 per cent of all ballots sent out. That count, as of Wednesday, consists of ballots that have been through the initial screening process at Elections BC, but doesn’t include others that have been received but not yet opened. Vancouver and Surrey together account for more than half of the ballots received so far. The return rate in Vancouver is 23.4 per cent, followed by 15.9 per cent in White Rock. Surrey’s rate is 14.1 per cent and most of Metro’s other medium and large cities have return rates of 11 to 15 per cent. Vancouver and Surrey were expected to dominate the count initially, because that’s where ballots were first mailed. – Jeff Nagel

‘Bullets fell from the sky’ – victim i from page 1 As of PAN deadline Thursday morning, police had fielded “three or four” more reports of shots fired – in addition to one around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday that resulted in the temporary lockdown of an elementary school near 134 Street and 62 Avenue. Police found no evidence to confirm any of those reports, Paquet said. Complicating the investigation is a lack of co-operation from those who have been shot. Police said many are mocking investigators from their hospital beds. “Don’t worry about it, no need for you cops to be here,” one victim is reported as saying. Another told officers, “I will take care of it myself.” Police said one victim even claimed he was injured when

Chesney was kept off the list. “I’m afraid I can’t,” he said. “It’s an in-camera matter.” Asked how many in-camera meetings council has held so far this term; Baldwin said he did not know but, pressed, offered a ballpark figure of “three or four, something like that.” Asked what section of the Community Charter deputymayor discussions would fall under, Baldwin deferred to city clerk Tracey Arthur.

Arthur responded via email that the section that applied to the discussions on the topic was “(a) personal information about an identifiable individual who holds or is being considered for a position as an officer, employee or agent of the municipality or another position appointed by the municipality.” Arthur confirmed that since the start of the term there were two in-camera meetings in December 2014 and eight so far in 2015.

Tax break sought White Rock Players Club has asked the city for a tax exemption, citing reduced attendance and required maintenance to the Coast Capital Playhouse as reasons for the request. Club president Fred Partridge presented the request to White Rock city council Monday, noting the club currently pays just under $20,000 in taxes and is looking for ways to raise funds to pay for building repairs. “Our members are finding it more and more difficult to fund the building through our amateur productions,” Partridge said. “Our available funds are shrinking as we have seen reduced audiences over the past couple of years.” Council voted to refer the request to staff for a report, expected sometime in early fall. – Melissa Smalley

Polarized parties

A

line in the sand has been drawn in White Rock, and the resulting crevice appears to be growing deeper by the day. Such is the case whenever polarized parties face off, not realizing there can be more than two sides to every story. White Rock Mayor Wayne Baldwin chaired what should have been a conciliatory event last Friday, when his council held an extraordinary meeting to discuss concerns over the city’s decision to cease solid-waste pickup for businesses and multifamily residents. Extraordinary indeed. Instead of attempting to meet residents halfway, Baldwin took them to task unapologetically, launching immediately into a lecture about undemocratic behaviour: “Recently, one councillor has been subjected to a movement to boycott his businesses, which includes posting flyers throughout the community and threats made to his employees. Another councillor, with a young family, has been harassed over the telephone and threatened unless he changes his vote. A third councillor felt sufficiently intimidated by protesters that a request was made for police presence at council chambers.” But to remove emotion from the argument, one must examine the mayor’s points independently. The first, that a councillor’s business is the target of a boycott campaign, should be denounced unequivocally. Should a person’s livelihood be threatened because of a desire to serve in public office? And what about the small business’s staff and other investors? More troubling, however, is the accusation that employees were threatened. If accurate, it should be the subject of a police investigation. As should Baldwin’s second accusation – that a councillor was phoned and threatened. However, the mayor later confirmed to Peace Arch News that the threat he’d heard about was that the councillor in question would be voted out of office if he didn’t reverse the decision. Hardly the “threat” we were anticipating, and certainly not worth delaying city business over. The last accusation, that a third councillor “felt sufficiently intimidated” that police were called, raises more questions than answers. Was this feeling warranted? If so, why weren’t more council members – even Baldwin himself – concerned? Indeed, if there was a real indication violence would erupt, why wasn’t the public warned? Otherwise, it sounds more like an excuse for us-versus-them thinking, which the city now has in spades. Thanks to hot-headed behaviour from both sides, it appears the city is no closer to closing this chasm.

much more important part of the world. Its economy has grown dramatically. Many more Indians have graduated from post-secondary schools, and business activity has grown significantly. Many younger Indians are fluent in English and the Indian diaspora has spread all over the world. At one time, India was a protectionist country. It is now more open to trading with the world than it has ever been. While there is still a lot of poverty in India, the growth of the middle class has been significant and that growth appears likely to continue. India’s trade with Canada is about five per cent of Canada’s trade with China. That difference seems hard to believe, given Canada’s large and growing Indian population. The federal government is focused on extending trade agreements with various countries, and anything that can boost trade with India would be very good for the Canadian economy. Modi is known for being open to increased trade and investment, and his election and pro-business attitude is expected to make India more open than ever. The fact that he wanted to visit Surrey points out the critical importance of this city to his country, and the important role it will play in the future. It is not an exaggeration to suggest that Modi’s visit may prove to be one of the most important ones ever made to Surrey by a visiting world leader.

Canine views frustrate Editor: Re: Two views on dogs at the beach, April 10 letters. One of the pleasures of moving to White Rock has been not having to dodge “friendly” dogs or their leavings at the beach. Unlike letter-writer April Kelly, many of us do not consider dogs as “part of the family.” Family members are not usually allowed to run up to strangers and lick them, leave muddy paw prints on clothing or take a “friendly” bite. Family members are not allowed to use public spaces as toilets. Perhaps if ‘responsible’ dog owners cleaned up the mess left by ‘the few irresponsible’ owners, I might feel more kindly, but I have yet to see that happen. What I often encounter are plasticized feces, undoubtedly bagged while someone was watching and then discarded moments later. I favour raising the fines rather than the coliform count. I’m glad Kelly knows of places that welcome her pet. White Rock waterfront is not among them. Susan Lindenberger, White Rock Q Full disclosure… I really like dogs. Their owners… not so much. Like the parents who let toddlers run rampant in restaurants – because they are so cute and who could possibly object – dog owners need to realize they are not the only occupants of the planet. Dogs, much as we may love them, don’t understand that some people are afraid of them. It isn’t enough to say “it’s OK he/she is friendly.” They are unpredictable, and the owner must accept that responsibility. The answer to this ongoing conflict? I don’t know, but maybe you could go to the shelter and get a spayed or neutered cat. Contrary to popular opinion, cats are just as lovable and loving as dogs, and they have more civilized toilet habits. Katherine Booth, Surrey Q Re: Curb dog owners who don’t obey, April 2 letters. Letter-writer Lynne Spence’s observation is a little off. The dog owners are in the parks day in and day out, rain or shine, every day of the year, because the mental and physical health of their animals is important to them. For six months of the year, you see very few people other than dog owners in the parks. There are far more assaults by people than there are by dogs, and yet a few members of our society seem to feel that everyone should be

painted with the same brush and be forced to abide by a draconian bylaw. Are leash laws really about public safety, or an easy revenue source? If dogs are running across picnic tables, playing fields or being aggressive, by all means enforce the bylaw. If they are on a path being curious and ignoring passersby, why should they be on a leash? Can we stop living in a nanny state and try to get along? I’m sorry if Ms. Spence has had a negative encounter. Dogs are not perfect; then, neither are people, and our society lets some very scary people roam free. Chris Hale, Surrey

‘Activist’ label too extreme Editor: Re: Multiple hurdles hold back added coal trains, April 8. I appreciate your coverage of the project to increase rail shipments of U.S. thermal coal and expand the Fraser Surrey Docks coal port. However, I do take issue with your use of the term “climate-change activists” to describe opponents. Such labelling suggests they are extremists who should not serve as a measure

of public opinion. It would be more accurate to say that opponents of the project are people who take seriously what is being said by over 95 per cent of the world’s climate scientists, every national academy of science and every major scientific society – that pollution from fossil-fuel use is changing the earth’s climate and threatening the survival of life! Is science, then, “climate-change activism”? The Government of Canada seems to think so, though Canadian premiers are now meeting in Quebec City to discuss the role provinces can play in limiting carbon emissions. David Anson, White Rock

All that the public has been asking of you is that you engage us, consult with us and actually consider what we have to say.a Dennis Lypka

Melissa Smalley photo

Last Friday’s packed meeting to deal with the public’s concerns did not address their issues, writes Dennis Lypka.

Sham meeting fails to clean mess An open letter to White Rock city council and senior staff. Regrettably, it is necessary on behalf of many of us citizens to write to you and advise of the hollow disappointment and bitter taste that lingers following the ‘special meeting’ held by council on April 10 (White Rock elected officials ‘threatened, harassed’, April 15). Your meeting was called “to deal with ‘issues raised by the community on the solid-waste decision.’” Instead, the meeting was manipulated to be just another unchallenged sideshow by staff scrambling to throw out unsupported ‘facts’ and ‘opinions’ to justify a decision improperly made in secret on Dec. 15. The meeting was an orchestrated sham. There was no true debate or discussion by council. Instead, to cover their tracks, council voted to throw away $100,000 in taxpayer money to “provide technical assistance,” to “provide education and awareness” and to buy 12,000 “kitchen catchers,” enough to supply the entire city. None of this was sought by those who rallied at city hall to try to “End Garbagegate”; it was a staff recommendation, just like the awful Dec. 15 decision. A colonial master approach – giving coloured beads and shiny trinkets to the natives to try to keep them pacified. If you think that we think your efforts are condescending and patronizing, then you are correct. What about the issues raised by the community? Did you deal with: • the impropriety of the city making its final decision, to terminate waste-collection services, at a closed meeting? • the fact the Dillon Report was not received by council until after its decision, and the report never recommended the action the city decided to take? • the neglect and lack of public engagement, consultation and dialogue both before and after the Dec. 15 decision?

Quartet

by Ronald Harwood

• the blatant disrespect and discourtesy shown to citizens by the way the city chose to communicate its decision? • what appears to be ‘union busting’ by the city? • the premature and unnecessary establishment of a solidwaste utility fee and its inequity? • the issues of unpaid volunteer strata personnel who think city staff should just do their jobs? • the issues raised by smaller stratas that tax reductions will be insufficient to cover costs of waste collection? • the unsightliness of garbage bins on display continually with over 250 stratas making individual arrangements? • the impacts of having all these different contractors and waste vehicles travelling through our community? • the city’s coy circumvention of Metro Vancouver diversion targets by making multifamily homes find their own service providers who will undoubtedly haul to landfill sites outside Metro Vancouver to avoid higher tipping fees and the organics ban? • the city’s negligence to take any action whatsoever to implement an organics plan with multifamily homes, despite lengthy advance notice? Sorry, but posters, consultants and free kitchen catchers just don’t cut it. All that the public has been asking of you is that you engage us, consult with us and actually consider what we have to say; we expect you to provide good government, to provide services for the community benefit and to foster the economic, social and environmental well-being of our community. This, you have clearly failed with “Garbagegate.” Although we may be wiser and better experienced on dealing with city hall in future, we continue to be angry, disappointed and left with a bitter taste in our mouths.

White Rock business targeted

‘Hydro’ scam Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A scam in which a caller purporting to represent BC Hydro threatens to cut power unless immediate payment is made on account arrears nearly cost a White Rock businessman $2,000. Youseff Khattab, owner of King Koin Laundry, said the caller he spoke with on April 7 “told me for the last four months that we didn’t pay anything,” Khattab said. “I took it seriously. Fortunately… I realized at the last minute it was a scam.” Khattab said he was given 30 minutes to attend to the arrears, and to call back with the access numbers for pre-loaded “power pack” gift cards. “Once you load it, you can’t get it back,” he said.

While Khattab understood the cards were a BC Hydro product, spokesperson Moira Scott said BC Hydro does not offer prepaid cards. “It doesn’t have anything to do with BC Hydro,” Scott said. She said BC Hydro continues to hear from “a lot” of customers reporting the scam. In February, Peace Arch News reported on a South Surrey businessman who wanted to warn others after he was targeted. Scott said three to five per cent of the more than 1,200 who have been targeted have lost money to the scam. Anyone doubting the authenticity of a call regarding their account should hang up and call back to BC Hydro, at 1-800-224-9376 (1-800-BCHydro).

Inmate sentenced A Fraser Valley inmate with roots in Surrey has been sentenced to seven years for slashing a guard in 2012. Kevin Beaulieu was serving 7½ years in Kent Institution, a maximum-security prison in Aggasiz. On June 23, 2012, Beaulieu slashed the face and neck of a corrections officer with a razor blade. The officer underwent almost three hours of surgery. In total, she lost four litres of blood. Beaulieu was “observed to be smiling and apparently pleased with himself,” according to court documents.

He was later heard bragging: “Almost killed her. Best day of my life.” Beaulieu, 43, grew up in Surrey and started using cocaine and committing property crime as a teenager. According to Justice Murray Blok, Beaulieu’s criminal record is “extensive.” The most recent sentence, handed down in Chilliwack’s Supreme Court, took into account that the assault involved an element of premeditation, a random victim and an attack that met all three definitions of aggravated assault. – Lorene Keitch

Rotarian revisits Cambodia

Project making progress Melissa Smalley

A

Staff Reporter

year after visiting an orphanage in Cambodia, a local Rotarian returned last month to see for himself how improvements were coming along. Brian O’Ruairc, a longtime member of the Rotary Club of South Surrey, returned to the Peninsula March 17 after a 10-day trip to Southeast Asia, where he visited the orphanage in Battambang that his club has been raising money to improve. The trip took place almost exactly a year after O’Ruairc and fellow rotarian Stuart Wilson journeyed to Cambodia to initially inspect the run-down orphanage – essentially nothing more than three tin-roof shacks – and determine what upgrades would need to take place. Upon returning to Battambang last month, O’Ruairc was pleased to see a marked improvement in the conditions for the 38 children who live there, specifically a major Brian O’Ruairc overhaul of the girl’s rotarian dormitory. “We paid to have a wall put in, and it was divided into three rooms. Now they have windows and doors with screens on them, so they can have air at night,” O’Ruairc explained. “At the back of these rooms there are also two little toilets, so they don’t have to go outside in the middle of the night to use the toilet.” The Rotary Club of South Surrey has raised a total of approximately $15,000 for improvements to the orphanage, including $7,500 to construct a proper kitchen. Currently, the kitchen consists of a dirt floor within one of the shacks; however, a separate structure is being built that will include tiled floors, tiled walls up to four feet and a stainless steel sink and table. According to O’Ruairc, the upgrades to B E N ’S M AY TAG

ALL OUT CLEARANCE EVENT

the orphanage are helping to provide an environment for the children – many of whom were abandoned by their parents – to grow up safely. However, he noted the facility – founded in 2007 by Amsterdambased Float Foundation – has a strong educational mandate as well. “The main ambition is that no child leaves there without a trade or profession,” O’Ruairc said, noting this year, a young woman who grew up in the orphanage is due to complete her training as a midwife. While the construction of the new kitchen is expected to be completed by mid-May, O’Ruairc said there is plenty of work to be done at the orphanage. The boys’ dormitory will need to be upgraded, similar to the work that took place on the girls’ quarters, and the property needs a safer and more efficient electrical system, as well as a sewage system. O’Ruairc also plans to elevate the orphanage’s garden beds so they don’t flood during monsoon season. While no official timeline for further improvements has been set, O’Ruairc hopes to complete additional work upon his return some time next year. During his recent trip, O’Ruairc also had the opportunity to visit a hospice for AIDS victims north of Bankgok, run by an elderly Thai woman. “The government won’t recognize anybody with AIDS,” he explained. “Most people ostracize anybody in their family if

they have AIDS, too.” Conditions at the hospice, O’Ruairc said, were deplorable; it has no proper sewage system, its dirt floor is perpetually flooded and the minimal equipment and supplies available are in poor condition. Along with other rotary clubs overseas, O’Ruairc hopes to raise the funds to build a new roof and concrete floor, reinforce the structure and build additional accommodations, as well as a septic system. “We’re looking to raise around $12,000 Canadian,” he said. “I’m going to meet with two other Rotary clubs to see if they can get some money together.” Anyone who would like to contribute to the club’s fundraising efforts can contact O’Ruairc at shamrockhome@shaw.ca or 604-250-4806.

Surrey event is the largest in world outside of India

More than 250,000 expected for Vaisakhi parade This year’s annual Vaisakhi parade takes place Saturday, April 18 and organizers are hoping it will be another recordbreaking event. More than 250,000 people are expected to attend the Surrey event, the largest Vaisakhi celebration in the world outside of India. The parade begins at about 9:30 a.m. and features music, dancing and floats representing schools and community groups and organizations. The most important float carries the Guru Granth Sahib – the Sikh holy scripture. The parade starts and finishes at the Gurdwara Sahib Dasmesh Darbar (11512885 85 Ave.). There will be

temporary stages set up along the parade route where performances, special greetings and speeches will take place. And food will be plentiful as businesses and residents offer snacks, drinks and an array of hot and cold fare to visitors free-ofcharge. The Surrey RCMP will be involved with the parade – not just for traffic control and public safety – but to take part in the festivities as well. “The Surrey RCMP is proud to participate in this yearly event that showcases the true diversity of our city,” said Surrey RCMP Community Services Officer Insp. Ghalib Bhayani. In addition to an information booth,

RCMP officers will be on-site wearing their traditional red serge. The public is invited to come by and take

photos at 128 Street and 84 Avenue. To accommodate the crowds, roads between 72 and 88 Avenues, to

132 Street in the east and 123 Street in the west, will be closed from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Look for the tent belonging to Peace Arch News’ sister-paper The Leader along the parade route at 124

Street and 82 Avenue and pick up a special Vaisakhi publication (also available online at surreyleader.com)

Ellie Harvie to host Partners in Caring Gala May 2

ER fundraiser adds a healthy dose of laughter Melissa Smalley Staff Reporter

Ellie Harvie knows that Peace Arch Hospital’s emergency department is no laughing matter. The Peninsula-based actor/ comedian has visited the ER plenty of times over the past several years with her elderly father, as well as her mother, who passed away in 2005. So when Harvie was approached by the Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation about MCing this year’s Partners in Caring Gala, she jumped at the opportunity to lend a hand. “I’m very familiar with the ER and very familiar with the great work they do, as well as the limitations they face,” Harvie told Peace Arch News. “I’m happy to be a part of any fundraising event that helps to improve it.” Harvie will be well within her element at the May 2 fundraising gala. She has MCed a number of fundraisers, hosted several awards shows and spoken at various corporate events over her career in the public eye. Known for her work in numerous movies and television shows – including her role as Morticia on The New Addams Family and, more recently, as Candace/Mrs. Bubkes on YTV’s Some Assembly Required – Harvie is next appearing in a Hallmark network movie-of-the-week series called Aurora Teagarden Mysteries, starring Candace Cameron Bure and Marilu Henner. With a background in theatre sports – in 1995, she won the Just For Laughs Improv Tournament in Montreal, beating out competitors from around the world – one thing gala attendees can expect next month is plenty

Alison MacLean organizing event

Charter march Alex Browne Staff Reporter

Crescent Beach-based videographer Alison MacLean is one of the organizers – and principal documenter – of the first-ever Charter of Rights and Freedoms March in Canada, scheduled for 9:30 this morning (Friday) in Vancouver. The march, which celebrates the 33rd anniversary of Canada’s Charter, will begin at the Olympic Village SkyTrain Station, ending at David Lam Park. Among those expected to participate are representatives of First Nations groups and Chinese-Canadian veterans. Survivors of the Tuskegee Airmen, a group of black U.S. combat pilots who battled racial discrimination at the same time they were fighting for their country in the Second World War, will also be part of the march, with group representative Col. Dick Toliver serving as keynote

speaker. Speaking on the theme of Canadian youth and future advocacy will be MacLean’s daughter, Teyana MacLeanMio, 17, who recently received an award from the U.S. Consul General. “The march is about celebrating our charter, but also acknowledging that there is a great deal of work still to be done,” said MacLean, who noted her particular interest in updating accessibility to the court system. “The whole concept of rights and freedoms means so many things to all of us. We can all be walking for a different reason, but for the same thing.” Adopted on April 17, 1982, the charter states that “every individual is equal before and under the law… without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability.” For information, visit www.rightsandfreedomsmarch.com

Quick response helps Special Olympic floor-hockey players

Gear donations pour in Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

The response to an appeal for help to acquire equipment that would enable young Special Olympics athletes on the Semiahmoo Peninsula to try their hand at floor hockey could not have been much quicker. Within 24 hours of being featured in Peace Arch News last month, the organizers’ phone was ringing with offers from people wanting to pitch in. Last week, the athletes were donning helmets and testing sticks. “I’d love for people to know the generosity we’ve seen,” Susan Richards de Wit said. De Wit, her husband Bob and their daughter Amadea have been running the Special Olympics Sport Start program in South Surrey since 2013. Alternating between basketball and soccer, it’s been a place for young athletes to experience entry-level sport in a fun, safe environment. Last month, de Wit shared the challenge her family was having, of wanting to expand the

Southridge School was the first to respond. “They asked us what we needed and they offered to get two large hockey foldable nets,” de Wit said. “They’re outfitting us with all the pucks, sticks and nets. “It was very, very generous.” Next came helmets and shin pads, donated by Rob Sinclair

of Marathon Surfaces. Canadian Tire added five helmets. Then, the family of Sport Start athlete Jacob Brauckmann – featured in PAN’s story – completed the package with a donation of more than a dozen pairs of hockey gloves. De Wit noted all of the donated equipment will stay with the Special Olympics program. Last week’s floor hockey introduction went off without a hitch, she said.

Lessons offered next week for beginners

Bridge clubs look to grow

13th Annual National

Hike 4 Hospice

Nick Greenizan Staff Reporter

There’s 15 minutes left to go in Tuesday’s duplicate bridge session at Elgin Hall, and one can – quite literally – hear a pin drop. All 80 players, grouped in 20 tables of four, stare intently at their cards, scorecards or playing partners. Some speak in hushed tones, discussing strategy or rehashing past hands. But – save for the odd squeak of a plastic chair – it’s mostly quiet. “In a few minutes, it’ll be bedlam,” whispers Jane Youngberg, one of the organizers behind the Peace Arch Duplicate and Duplicate Lite bridge clubs, both of which meet weekly at the Crescent Road hall. True to her word, the game ends and the cleanup process begins. Not 10 minutes later, the room is cleared of tables and chairs. Three times a week, serious bridge players come from across the Lower Mainland – as far away as Bellingham, even – to take part in typically 3½-hour sessions. “Our duplicate-lite sessions are the largest in the Lower Mainland,” she says. “And it’s just growing. Bridge is very, very popular.” It’s so popular, in fact, that Youngberg is spearheading a third club, the Surrey Duplicate Bridge Club, to meet Wednesdays. For beginning players, two two-

Duplicate bridge is a form of the game in which the same hands are played successively by different partnerships. Although it can be complicated, Youngberg says that after two lessons participants “will be able to play a basic game.” While Tuesday’s session featured some of the area’s most dedicated players and was largely intensely quiet, Youngberg said bridge

really is a social game and the weekly sessions can be a great way to meet people. “Duplicate lite is a very welcoming, friendly environment, and I think that’s why it’s so popular,” she says, noting it’s an excellent way to stay sharp. “It keeps those brain cells active, because there’s so much to learn. You never stop learning, really.” For information, visit http://site. pianola.net/duplicate-lite/-home, email surreybridgelessons@gmail. com or call 604-541-4028.

Band rises, Phoenix-like, after 2013 car crash

Hawking takes wing Alex Browne

I

Arts Reporter

t would be unfair to imply that a horrifying single-vehicle crash during a tour in late 2013 was a defining moment in the musical career of White Rock-based singer-songwriter Tom Vanderkam and his band – formerly Tommy Alto, now known as Hawking. But it might be fair to say the accident redefined it. It’s hard not to see some influence of months of post-crash recovery and posttraumatic introspection on the music the band now produces. In a new self-titled EP – to be launched at a pre-release concert Friday, May 1 at Vancouver’s The Media Club, heralding a two-month tour across Canada and the U.S. – Hawking showcases the tightest, most focused music of Vanderkam’s career. Songs like Safe and Sound, Cold Hands and Books On Tape are still true to hashtags like ‘progressive’, ‘emo’ and ‘math-rock’ (the new band name referencing famed scientist Stephen Hawking, a play on the genre itself), but the effects are pared-down and, consequently, more effective. The emotional lyricism is well-served by Vanderkam’s versatile, highly-charged voice as lead vocalist, while the complex interplay of tempo-shifts, guitar licks and drum beats is – more than an empty exercise in virtuosity – driven by the structure of each song. The result, as in most good pop music, is a series of evocative mini-movies for the mind and ear, with a degree of ambiguity that stimulates the listener’s imagination. “Every song tells a story,” Vanderkam agreed, during an interview with Peace Arch News, noting that the song-writing process has become much more collaborative. “We’ve very much reinvented ourselves as a band. And I’ve re-invented myself as a songwriter. I feel the new music is much more cohesive, much tighter.” Flash back to Aug. 26, 2013 at around 7:30

gering feeling that, physically, he’s not in the same place he was before the accident. “Even a year after, I wasn’t fully aware of the severity (of my injuries),” he said, noting the psychological impact may be even more telling. “You look back at the experience and think about what you are able to learn from it. It allowed me weeks and months of reflection. You look at the wreck of that van and think (none of us) should still be alive.” New member of the band is bassist Chris Young, who came in after it became clear that Engels would not return. “Chris is an excellent bass player who did a great job filling the big shoes that Paul left,” Vanderkam said. “He does a lot of countermelodic work that makes the music very, very colourful and complex.” The band’s current music hasn’t evolved as the result of any overt direction, Vanderkam noted. “It has been very organic,” he said. “When you play with the same group of guys for a while it really starts to click.” By the same token, he said, the band was always in a very experimental, independent mindset in the past. “We’ve never put out ‘pop’ music before. We were always aware of this awesome, very, very cool, weird, intricate music coming out of our instruments, but somehow the ‘hook’ i see page 22

he acknowledged, given that he first won notice locally in youth contests such as Diamond In The Rock as a performer ready to “give 150 per cent.” “I’ve always been a maximalist – I’ve never been a fan of minimalism.

Staff Reporter

Fans of music from yesteryear will have the chance to step back in time next month, when the next show in St. Mark’s concert series takes the stage. On Sunday, May 3 at 2 p.m., Alexander Browne and his Aristrocrats will perform at The Parish of St. Mark Ocean Park (12953 20 Ave.), bringing to life music from the Roaring ’20s and the early 1930s. For Browne – familiar to those on the Semiahmoo Peninsula in his role as a reporter at the Peace Arch News – authenticity is the key when playing music from the art deco era. “A lot of musical acts, movies and theatre productions today reference the 1920’s and 1930s in one way or another – just look at

restored historic arrangements for years, often writing new parts to replace missing or tattered old ones. Some of the arrangements were actually given to

me by musicians who played them way back when, who were glad to see us bring the music back to life again, the way it was originally heard.”

Tickets to the May 3 show are $15, and are available online at http://alexbrowne. brownpapertickets.com For more information, call 604-535-8841.

Optimism abounds as Tritons open Premier Baseball League season

‘From top to bottom, we’re strong’ Nick Greenizan

A

Sports Reporter

couple of losses on the opening weekend of the BC Premier Baseball League season have done little to dampen the outlook of White Rock Tritons’ head coach Russ Smithson. Last weekend, White Rock dropped two home games to the Langley Blaze – 7-0 in the opener, and 9-8 in Game 2 – but Smithson still expects a strong season from his under-18 baseball club. The team exorcised a few playoff demons last year by qualifying for the post-season for the first time since 2009 – White Rock lost a first-round series to the Victoria Mariners – and Smithson thinks this year’s team is primed not only to compete for a playoff spot, but to advance further than the opening round.

“We’ve got some really good top-end guys, and I think, from top to bottom, we’’re strong,” the coach said. “It’s going to take all 20 guys to win, and I think we’re in good shape.” As is the case most years, the Tritons saw a handful of key veterans graduate from the league – including sluggers James Pavelick and Dylan Yeager, the latter of whom led the PBL with six home runs last year – but Smithson is confident the newcomers will fill the void. “You’re never going to be able to replace the Liam Rihelas or the Yeagers of the world, but we’ve got some good returning guys, plus a lot of good players from our junior team last year. Experience won’t be an issue for us,” Smithson said.

One key newcomer, Smithson said, is shortstop Danny Hollins, who finished last season at the midget level after beginning the year playing for the Langley Blaze. “To have a guy like that, who can play in the field as well as hit – that’s huge for us,” Smithson said of his new infielder, who earlier this year inked a scholarship with Montana State University–Billings. Among the returning players are first baseman Tom Melenchuk, outfielders Juan Paez and Aaron Wiegart, and pitchers Barry Caine, Anthony Aiello and Keaton Edwards. “We’ve got four really good starting pitchers who can match up with anybody,” Smithson said. “And that’s important when you get to the i see page 26

Cloverdale’s Tyler Tardi is off to the Youth Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway next year. The Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary student is one of two junior curlers from B.C. who have been picked for Team Canada at the games. Tardi, who plays out of the Langley Curling Club, and Sterling Tyler Tardi Middleton of curler Fort St. John won bronze at the Canada Winter Games in Prince George as part of Team B.C. “I’m at a loss for words,” Tardi said, reacting to the news. “It’s amazing. I’ve always wanted to wear the Maple Leaf and that dream has now come true.” Middleton is looking forward to being on a team with Tardi, who skipped Team BC to that thirdplace finish. “I think we meshed well together this year, so it will be great to curl with him again.” The two 16-year-olds will be joined by Mary Fay and Karlee Burgess from Nova Scotia. Team Canada applicants were judged on their curling skills, along with their community leadership and academic experience, according to Curl BC. “The quality of applications we received through this process was simply amazing, and it bodes well for the future of our sport in Canada,” Curling Canada’s Greg Stremlaw said. “I know Tyler, Sterling, Mary and Karlee will wear the Maple Leaf proudly in Lillehammer, and we’re confident that they’ll be wonderful representatives.” Tardi is a two-time B.C. mixeddoubles champion who competed at the 2013 and 2015 Canadian mixed-doubles trials. The 2016 Youth Olympics are in Lillehammer Feb. 12- 21, 2016. – Jennifer Lang

Surrey soccer teams to hitch pitch for Provincial ‘A’ Cup Rick Kupchuk Sports Reporter

Two local soccer squads are among the four seeded teams in BC Soccer’s Men’s Provincial A Cup draw. ICST Pegasus of the Vancouver Metro Soccer League (VMSL)

and North Delta SC Lions of the Fraser Valley Soccer League (FVSL) were among the seeded teams in the 16-team single knockout provincial championship competition, which begins this weekend.

Pegasus, the secondplace team in the VMSL Premier Division with a 12-3-7 record, will host Saanich Fusion FC of the Vancouver Island Soccer League (VISL). North Delta will also play a VISL opponent

in the round-of-16, playing at home against Nanaimo United FC. The SC Lions topped the FVSL Premier Division at 14-3-4. Surrey United of the Metro Women’s Soccer League will be seeking an 11th consecutive

New GM, assistant coaches on board i from page 25 last game of a busy weekend, that fourth game.� Aside from adding a handful of new players, more change was afoot for the Tritons during the offseason. Longtime Peninsula resident and pro baseball scout Marty Lehn – who currently works for the Philadelphia Phillies – was brought aboard as general manager, which left Smithson, who’d previously held a dual coach/GM title, more time to focus on the on-field product. As well, a handful of new coaches

were also brought into the fold. Former Tritons player Jordan Broatch – who coached the Junior Tritons last season – is with the U18 outfit this year, as pitching coach, while Mike Hughes will also serve as an assistant coach. “We’ve got a real good crew here,� Smithson said. The Tritons will look to get their first win of the season tomorrow (Saturday), when they host the Okanagan Athletics for a pair of games at South Surrey Athletic Park, at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. The two teams will square off twice more

Sunday, also at SSAP, at 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.

Scholarships In addition to Hollins’ deals, five other Tritons already have scholarships in their back pocket. Paez (Land Lake Jr. College), catcher Thomas Vincent (Big Bend Jr. College), Edwards (George Fox University), Caine and Wiegert (both with Cloud County Jr. College), all signed with their respective schools before the season began.

Women’s Provincial A Cup championship, and has a bye to the

quarter-final round. They will begin play the weekend of April

25-26 against either Castaways FC of the VISL or Coastal FC.

Mountain-bike event set for Saturday at South Surrey Bike Park

Junkyard Dog race returns Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The Junkyard Dog rides again. The popular mountain bike race – which was held annually at South Surrey Bike Park from the early 2000s until 2012 – will return to the trails Saturday, April 18 as part of Cycling BC’s new premier series racing circuit. The popular race – hosted by SORCE (Surrey Off Road Cycling Enthusiasts) – had been a staple on the now-defunct BC Cup schedule, but hasn’t been held in the last few years. “It’s been on hiatus for awhile, but we’re happy to be running the race again, and to be part of this new premier series that Cycling BC has launched,” said SORCE’s Dale Tiessen. “Everybody is happy to see it come back – there’s been a huge amount of enthusiasm.” The Junkyard Dog race will be the first in the new four-event series. After Saturday’s event in South Surrey, the series shifts to Roberts Creek for the Sunshine Coaster XC (May 2), then to North Vancouver as part of the North Shore Bike Fest (June 6-7), before wrapping up in Whistler (June 28). In the absence of the Junkyard Dog race, SORCE has held in recent years a series of “toonie” races at South Surrey Bike Park, Tiessen explained. Essentially, riders would show up, pay $2 to register, and off they’d go. “It was pretty informal,” said Tiessen, who rides with Daryl-

Evans Racing, which is co-sponsoring the Junkyard Dog race. Saturday’s event will consist of two separate races – a 9 a.m. “allcomers” event, in which anyone can sign

up and participate, followed by an 11 a.m. race which will feature some of B.C.’s top pro-elite and masters division riders. Tiessen expects more than 100 cyclists to

take part, and said the plan is to have the race return to being a yearly event. “We’d like to add it back into the annual repertoire, for sure,” he said.

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

West Coast modern in vibrant South Surrey

B

reeze, an award winning townhome community by Adera Development, blurs the lines between the outdoors and indoors by reflecting West Coast living at its best. According to vice president of marketing and sales, Eric Andreasen, that means incorporating the convenience of a suburban lifestyle in the heart of what makes B.C. so beautiful: nature. The three-storey townhomes in the heart of South Surrey are suitable for professional couples, young families and downsizers alike. “It’s in a superb location, just a couple of minutes from Morgan Crossing Lifestyle Center, shopping galore, access to beaches, the border is a stone’s throw away, you can easily get downtown to watch a hockey game, and yet, the outdoors are all around you with plenty of nearby trails,” he says. For Breeze, it’s also about bringing that beauty and space indoors by having the kind of layout that suits a variety of lifestyles without feeling cramped or closed-in. “It’s all efficient, open spaces, that gives people a real sense of home,” says Andreasen. Two-, three-, and four-bedroom homes are built with lasting style in mind, using modern architecture that reflects elements of the great outdoors. That’s why Breeze is rooted in a philosophy that celebrates the use of natural materials, including cedar detailing and floor-to-ceiling glass walls that let the outside, in. When walking into a Breeze home, guests will notice clean designs with sustainability in

mind, like the motion activated light switches, while large, open kitchen spaces and dining islands made of granite/quartz are perfect for gathering friends and family. “The cool thing is that you can modify anything,” says Andreasen, speaking of the unique function that allows buyers to customize their space. “Our personalization program, i.D. By Me offers a long list of customizable options. You don’t just get color choice A or B, you get to pick from a general color variations, alterations and upgrades – it makes the cookie cutter disappear from personal space.” i.D. By Me gives homebuyers the chance to be their own interior designer and ensure that Breeze is more than just a home – it’s a creation. From upgraded appliances in the kitchen, heated floors in the bathroom, or built in organizers throughout the home, Adera’s personalization

Breeze is a showcase for West Coast modern inspired architecture: clean, extended lines and planes, elegant & simple forms, and contemporary style.

Large, open kitchen spaces and dining islands to gather with family and friends for at-home socializing.

program offers a variety of choices and changes that can be made to fit any lifestyle, personality or budget. The West Coast Club is a stand-alone amenity

that serves as a 3,700 sq. ft social space and wellness center. There is a wide range of exercise equipment, a yoga room, infrared sauna and change room with shower, as well as a large chef ’s kitchen and expansive outdoor covered patios for entertainment. “You can meet your friends at the West Coast Club to sit and chat, turn on the TV in lounge, enjoy the gigantic outdoor deck with

a fireplace, relax, cook and have a couple of drinks at sunset,” says Andreasen. Homes at Breeze start in the low $300’s with less than 8 homes remaining. “We just released the gems of the crowd: our display homes,” he says. “They are the crème de la crème because they are designed to look as good as they possibly can.” The Sales Centre is open daily from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. at #11 – 16223 23A Avenue in South Surrey.

OBITUARIES

COULTHARD, Margaret Lorraine March 20, 1930 - April 7, 2015

DALISAY, Jose Trinidad Died peacefully at Peace Portal Seniors Village on April 10th, 2015. Survived by his 3 children Jose Jr, Jo Ann and Joni, and his 5 grandchildren Jarryd, Donovan, Alyssa, Malia and Olivia. Predeceased by his wife, Antonina. Jose was born on March 5, 1928 in San Pablo, Philippines. He and Antonina moved to Corner Brook, NL in 1966. They moved to White Rock, B.C in 1996. A memorial service will be held in Victory Memorial Park 14831 28th Ave in Surrey, B.C., on Friday April 17th @ 1:00 pm.

Margaret Coulthard (nee Flynn) passed away peacefully in White Rock. Born in Brandon, MB, Marg lived most of her life in White Rock, and later in Agassiz and Sardis. She was predeceased by her loving husband Murray in 1999. Along with her sister Muriel Eileen McDonald of Chilliwack, Marg is survived by her 4 children: Lynn of Vancouver, Brent (Tracey) of White Rock, Glen (Kim) of Vernon, and Lisa (Stephen) of Richmond. “Nanny” was also grandmother to Kyra, Tessa, Scott, Andie, and Jack. As per her wishes, Marg will be cremated and reunited with Murray during a family memorial service at the Chilliwack Cemeteries. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the BCSPCA (http://www.spca.bc.ca).

Kathleen has ended her time among us. Although we all would have wished her additional years, Kathleen passed away peacefully after a happy and meaningful life. Kathleen was born in Leicester in England. Her family moved to Kent where they lived at the outbreak of war. It was there that she met and married John Chilton, and where her first son was born. Kathleen and her growing family immigrated to Canada in 1954, living first in Toronto, then Winnipeg, Calgary, White Rock and Nanaimo. Having served in many capacities, Kathleen ended her working life with the Federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans at the Pacific Biological Station. In her retirement, Kathleen returned to White Rock, a community that she loved, and where she made endless dear friends. She also enjoyed every coffee shop between White Rock and Crescent Beach. Kathleen gave of herself with many hours of volunteering with chums at the Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary Superfluity Shop. Kathleen also took great joy in being engaged in the lives of her sons and their families. She will long be remembered as a dear friend, a staunch supporter, a giving partner and an objective advisor. Kathleen was predeceased by her husband John, and by her brother Desmond Chaperon (Joan). Kathleen is survived by her brother Gerald Chaperon (Doreen), by her sons Reagan (Linda), Glen (Lisa) and Ross (Annette), and by grandchildren Tiffany, Kimberly, Ryan and Emily, and by greatgrandsons Tyson and Carter. “I want you to remind everyone that I knew how to laugh, and tell them that I had no regrets.”
