Surrey city council has unanimously decided to borrow $150.6 million for three major community projects although some councillors expressed trepidation about the city taking on so much debt. Council passed third reading Monday on authorizing borrowing, through the Municipal Finance Authority of British Columbia, $40 million to construct a sports complex in the city centre, $20.6 million to build a sports and ice complex in Cloverdale and $90 million to construct a community centre in Newton. “We definitely need these facilities for our young families,” Councillor Linda Annis said.

South Asian Community Hub

More help for Surrey’s addicted New hub in Newton aims to break down barriers for addicted South Asian men

Several Surrey/White Rock sports organizations will get some provincial funding to ease the pain of the COVID-19 pandemic, as part of the $1.5-million Local Sport Relief Fund announced on Thursday, Jan. 21. Great Canadian Gaming CEO Rodney Baker has resigned from his position amid accusations he and his wife travelled to the Yukon from Vancouver to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

Tom Zytaruk tom.zytaruk@surreynowleader.com

A local collective of community health advocates have formed a group they call the South Asian Community Hub in an effort to break down barriers to services particularly for South Asian men who are wrestling with drug addiction. “There is an entire community that has required services that has just gone unnoticed for so long,” said Upkar Singh Tatlay, treasurer and director of SACH, which is temporarily located out of the Dasmesh Darbar Gurdwara at 12885 85th Ave. in Newton. “Once COVID protocols are lifted we will be moving closer to, still in Newton, but more the King George and 72nd area.” According to SACH, which is a word that means “true” in Punjabi, a recent report out of the Fraser Health Authority revealed that South Asian men represented 77 per cent of its overdose cases in 2017 and though many South Asians call Surrey home (33 per cent of the population) and 25 per cent in Abbotsford and 20 per cent in Delta, the statistic is “shockingly high.” Tatlay noted that the data revealed the group suffering from drug addiction “overwhelmingly

Vancouver police have issued $2,500 in fines to a man, found over the weekend donning a protective vest and acting as a doorman outside of a makeshift nightclub with roughly 100 guests inside.

The South Asian Community Hub team, from left: Upkar Singh Tatlay, Gary Thandi, Allysha Ram, Jassy Pandher, Harman Pander. (Submitted photo) was male. There are women, but overwhelmingly male.” Asked why he thinks that is, Tatlay replied that “on the sciences side of things I can’t speculate, but anecdotally there could be numerous factors. Obviously first you have to kind of look at flaws in the data. It could just be cultural factors too.” Moreover, deaths related to toxic drugs increased in South Asians by 255 per cent between 2015 and 2018 compared to 138 per cent among other residents in the Fraser Health region, with the number of fatalities increasing to 80 from 20 each year. Tatlay said there’s “numerous factors” to the disproportion. “One of the key ones is that it’s a community that just has not received resources and services whether harm reduction, or simple techniques on how to identi-

fy an overdose,” he explained. “It’s something that’s so removed from the community in terms of just resources. Not just the South Asian community but any ethnic community has never received information or resources tailored to that community. The communication has lacked.” It’s partly a language issue, he added, and stigma around substance use and overdose is also “a huge thing,” especially in the South Asian community, which presents another big challenge for the hub to contend with. Tatlay says because the SACH Community Hub is built on “pillars,” every person “brings sort of their own lens into it.” The goal is to reduce stigma while increasing access to resources. “The need is so great,” Tatlay said. “We have an abundance of

people who need this assistance, need this service. We are already delivering whether it’s substance use counselling, mental health therapy, income assistance. We’re delivering food security, hygiene packs.” Essentially what the hub does is it provides access to services through a centralized location. “We were doing this in sort of nebulous points throughout the city but now to be able to pull the resources together, bring the strength of the individuals together to deliver all the services through a hub just makes it that much more organized,” Tatlay says. SACH is raising funds for an outreach office. To learn more, visit sachbc.ca and those interested in donating to this cause, or in being a sponsor, can contact info@sachbc.ca.

COMMENCING: 7PM

Councillor Steven Pettigrew said he supports the projects but added he would have preferred to see it done differently. “I don’t believe in increasing our debt burden to our city, but at this point we don’t have a whole lot of other options. I would have preferred to see the (policing) transition cancelled and the monies redirected from there into these projects.” Councillor Brenda Locke also weighed in. “Likewise I’ll be supporting it, albeit cautiously as well,” she said. “I’m also concerned about the fiscal reality that we know we are in and the fiscal reality that we don’t know we are in, which is what the pandemic will do as we continue to move forward. “I have one other wish, and that would be the pool for the people of Whalley, that is certainly something that I think is unfortunately not here and perhaps we can look at that at another opportunity.” According to a corporate re-

port by Kam Grewal, Surrey’s general manager of finance, the Cloverdale project will provide two more sheets of ice for that community and is estimated to cost $50.1 million, with $29.5 million of that funded through pay-as-you-go city financing and the rest through long-term borrowing through the MFA. Last October, council unanimously authorized city staff to purchase 16 adjacent parcels of land in Newton for future parkland, road alignment and civic projects. It involves 7.24 acres, part of which embraces the former site of the Rona store at 6965 King George Blvd., which closed permanently on Jan. 26, 2020. Grewal said design work for the community centre is expected to begin early this year with 18 to 20 months of construction starting in late 2021. Grewal noted design work for the city centre sports complex will begin early this year with construction targeted to begin in late 2021 and its expected com-

pletion in mid-2022. He added the design for the Cloverdale project is “essentially complete,” with construction expected to begin next year and be finished in early 2024. Mayor Doug McCallum chided council members outside his Safe Surrey Coalition for voting against, and “speaking loud and hard and determined” against, the city budget. “I’m glad that you have changed your mind, but boy, I say it, this very truly, that, you know, we have to get some consistency in here and we need to be thinking of the City of Surrey, not of ourselves, how we can improve it,” McCallum said. “And it is really critical to those four that constantly voted against these projects, constantly voted against our budget, to all of a sudden turn around and support it, I mean, that’s to me, in my ears, it’s astonishing. “I’m glad to hear that council is unanimous in moving forward with this.”

Continued from A1 “However, I am concerned about the fact that we are borrowing such a significant amount of money. I feel that we need to be re-prioritizing what we’re doing rather than borrowing this kind of money. I think we should be living within our budgets,” Annis said. “Once we come out of COVID, what happens if the interest rates go up? I don’t want to see us selling lands.” Councillor Allison Patton said the time is right to borrow money, with interest rates being as low as they are. “If not now, when? That’s what leaders do, is they figure out solutions when the time is right and when it makes sense,” Patton said. Councillor Jack Hundial said he would support it, “but very cautiously. “I’m not a fan of borrowing if we don’t need to and there’s money elsewhere that we can be bringing in,” he said.

In addition, Homayoon said because the operating period is “typically short,” the recovery period is “much faster.” “(It’s) increasingly important in the COVID era because you don’t want to keep patients in hospital if you don’t have to,” he explained. “It significantly reduces costs to the whole system because you’re doing these procedures in the medical imaging department. You’re not taking an operating room to be able to do this.”

Pandemic aside, things are back to normal for a Surrey neighbourhood that for a few months was besieged by a group of protesters that targeted a local man, claiming he is a spy for the Chinese government. The protest carried on for weeks on end, day to day and from dawn too dusk, in the 9700-block of 149th Street, but petered out last month after the Surrey RCMP laid down the law. Starting on Sept. 14, protesters wore blue tent-like suits and railed against Bingchen (Benson) Gao outside of his home. Gao is a journalist working for a Chinese language newspaper in Vancouver and posts commentary on YouTube. He does not speak English, but his wife Alice Zheng does and she denounced the protesters’ claims as “very ridiculous.”

“We don’t know if they will come back in the future, because their actions were so weird,” Zheng told the Now-Leader on Thursday. “We still worry about it.” Meanwhile, neighbour Bob Petersen is glad the protesters are gone. “They’ve moved on, it was shortly after your article came out. The police took some action – they’ve been taking action all the way along,” he said, “pushing them back and back. “They told them they couldn’t film anymore, which is I think the thing that bothered them the most because they were live-feeding to whomever their viewers were. “That ended it for these guys,” he said. “The only other thing that we are still worried about is they could come back in at any time, right, but they’re gone and I doubt that they would so long as there’s no filming.”

Protesters gather recently in Johnston Heights neighbourhood. (Submitted photo) Surrey RCMP Coporal Joanie Sidhu explained how it went down. “Where it ended was the protest got to a point where the actions of the protesters were becoming unreasonable,” she said. “Specifically the filming, there was ongoing filming for hours and hours at a time and it got to the point where it was a privacy concern for not only the subject that was the target for the protest but also for the neighbours in the area.” Sidhu noted that residents couldn’t leave their blinds open or let their kids out, “so that was challenging. “They weren’t able to live normally, a normal life with their

blinds open and allowing their kids to go out, knowing that they would be captured in the videotaping, so at that point the officers had no choice but to place restrictions on the protest because they were getting very close to territory where they were on the borderline of harassment, mischief.” Sidhu added that police designated “a little green space” for them to protest from. “They didn’t return after that.” Police are also investigating an alleged assault in the culde-sac in November and Sidhu said a charge recommendation “package” has been forwarded to Crown counsel for consideration.

Once determined that this is necessary for Probate, an application is made that includes affidavits and the statement of assets and liabilities and is filed wit the Court. Once approved by the Avalon Surrey Funeral Home by Arbor Memorial Court, the Grant of Probate then allows the executor to deal with, and distribute the assets in accordance with the wishes 604-581-4401 of the deceased.

Your Chiropractic Professional If I exercise when I’m older will it help minimize the aging process?

Q: The short answer is yes. There is a significant amount of good research A: that indicates that aging doesn’t necessarily need to be debilitating. Many seniors still compete in masters level athletics/hockey/rugby etc. Exercise for

seniors has shown to lower the risk of fatal and non-fatal heart attack, high blood pressure and atherosclerotic heart disease. In addition, weight training slows the decline in muscle mass and strength more effectively than aerobic training alone. Therefore, it is critical to continue exercising and don’t forget that chiropractic care is highly beneficial for helping maintain strength and function for all ages.

Our view

Hearings for being heard

S

urrey city council’s bi-weekly public hearings, held digitally on account of the pandemic, gives Surrey residents an important arena in which to express their concerns to council on project applications both great and small, be they about a single-detached residence or a multimillion-dollar tower project. Ideally, council members will carefully weigh what callers have to say about how a proposal will affect themselves, their neighbours and the general public, in ways good or bad. This exchange is important not

only to the democratic process but also in making important decisions, which should never be done in a vacuum. Even Solomon gave audience before deciding which peasant got to keep a cow. Unfortunately, Surrey public hearings of late have been devolving into something less than intended. On Monday night, nine callers were cut off by Mayor Doug McCallum. The aggrieved callers undoubtedly feel roughly handled. The mayor will likely tell you they had it coming because they weren’t stay-

ing on topic, which is the purpose of a public hearing in the first place, and something he as the chair explicitly warns callers to do at the outset of each of these hearings. While both sides might well claim righteous ground, as with most things, the truth often resides somewhere in the grey middle. The purpose of a public hearing is not to provide callers with an opportunity to goad the mayor. Nor is it to provide the mayor with his own personal trap door. –Now-Leader

Too much comfort food eventually leads to physical discomfort OffTopic Brenda Anderson

Whether you’ve dubbed that extra few inches you’ve started carrying around your waist the ‘COVID ’19’ or proclaimed yourself a victim of the ‘poundemic,’ take heart in knowing that you are not alone. Far from it, in fact. There are thousands of us in the same boat and our numbers are growing every day – in more ways than one. We are becoming a well-rounded bunch. Like those who learned to bake bread or took up decoupage when everything shut down for a while last spring, I also found a hobby in

the early days of the pandemic. I began comfort-eating like I was training to go pro. And, as the old saying goes, practice does indeed make perfect. It’s no coincidence that, when dine-in was not an option, I (like countless others, judging from the lineups) rediscovered the convenience of the fast food drive-thru. When you’re feeling a bit blue because you can’t meet your friends for drinks or a movie, it’s not hard to convince yourself, while balancing a burger and fries on your lap, that you really do deserve that creamy chocolate shake, too. And then there’s the grocery store. Making trips as infrequent as possible, for safety’s sake, means stocking up while you’re there. This includes preparing for any potential snacking emergencies well in advance. After all, you have no way of knowing what you’ll be craving

over the next couple weeks. Could be sweet, could be salty, or, more likely, some combination of the two. There’s just no way to predict it, so it’s best to get one (or two) of everything. And when you think about it, buying the extra-large, economy-sized bag of ripple chips is just a prudent financial move. Bulk is always better – until that bulk prevents you from zipping up your pants. A report earlier this month claimed that among the few businesses that are actually thriving during this global crisis are restaurants devoted to that ultimate comfort food – fried chicken. Several independent ventures have reportedly bucked the trend and opened in the past 10 months or so, while some popular chain restaurants, like many of us, con-

tinue to expand. Whether it’s a deep-fried chicken burger or a bowl of rocky road that’s getting you through this never-ending ordeal, throwing off the shackles of a healthy diet is all fun and games, until you realize that it’s actually not all that much fun. There’s a reason our parents didn’t let us subsist on a diet of sugary desserts – eventually, without proper nutrition, you begin to feel like garbage. Making the situation worse right now, is the winter blues – which tend to peak in January – coming this year amid months of COVID-related restrictions. Experts will tell us, much like our own experience does, that a healthy diet, combined with a bit of exercise, can make a world of difference. I’m not for a moment, suggesting that we can all simply walk away

from our troubles. People who suffer from depression require and deserve professional help. But those of us who are just feeling generally blah, know that when we eat well and get even a moderate amount of exercise, we tend to feel better, both physically and mentally. The challenge for me is remembering that I actually do enjoy exercise before dragging my butt for the first 20 minutes of an hourlong power walk. The other thing worth remembering is that this, too, shall pass. With the province’s vaccine rollout plan in place, by the time next winter rolls around, life should be pretty much back to normal. And we can all take comfort in that. Brenda Anderson is editor of the Peace Arch News, a sister paper to the Now-Leader.

ROSES AND ROTTEN TOMATOES: Do you have someone you would like to thank? Or maybe something to get off your chest? Email your rose or rotten tomato to edit@surreynowleader.com. z Roses and a big thank you to my doctor for telling me (a senior) to get busy and exercise. Daily walking and YouTube exercises for seniors are getting me through COVID-19 days. z I take exception to those who give rotten tomatoes when they know only half of the story, as conveyed by the media. Boundary Park Place was a beautiful place to live until conflict within the Strata council resulted in division and media coverage solicited by one owner. In this case, Strataco was of no help whatsoever while Strata council tried to uphold bylaws that are still in place. Council members tried to protect owners’ privacy by providing ‘no comment’ to the media and look what happened – only one half of the story was conveyed and many people have been hurt because of it. Get all the facts before you sling the mud. z Rotten tomatoes to the builders of a new house who decided to chop down an oak that neighbours say was over 100 years old. It is doubtful they had a permit.

I wonder what the City of Surrey plans to do about it? z Rotten tomatoes to the mayor and some councillors who listen to no one. To the councillor whose favourite place is White Rock – the next election, we will be delighted to have you leave Surrey. Take the mayor and your three fellow councillors with you. z Rotten tomatoes to people who keep putting down the Surrey Police Service. Whether these new officers live in Surrey or not shouldn’t matter. What matters is that they are a good fit for the job. Let’s give the Surrey Police Service a chance and see how it goes. z Roses to whomever cleaned up the garbage and plastic waste at Robson Park. z Roses to the four Surrey councillors who are trying to run the city with accountability.

The Editor, Re: “McCallum insists First Nations are treated ‘better in Surrey literally than anywhere,” the Now-Leader, Jan. 21. The Safe Surrey Coalition members show they do not work for the residents of Surrey but only for their own political clique by voting down any motion brought forward by other members of council, regardless of its merit. The 5-4 rejection of First Nations acknowledgment before Surrey council meetings is a prime example of this school-yard behavior. First Nations were acknowledged after the last civic election when the mayor and council were sworn in, so why not now? As a Surrey resident, it is embarrassing to realize that the City of White Rock acknowledges the Semiahmoo people before each council meeting as a show of respect and reconciliation. The little seaside town of White Rock can do this neighbourly gesture but the big city of Surrey cannot? CUPE 402, which represents all of Surrey’s unionized employees, has been acknowledging historical Indigenous communities at their union meetings for years. So union leaders do this but our elected leaders fail to follow their example? The same kind of games were played by the last White Rock mayor and council, who would not admit that their historic pier was the longest in Canada, simply because it was endorsed by Dave Chesney, a common sense councillor. Well, their little gang was booted out, Chesney is still on council, and “Canada’s Longest Pier” is now carved into the end of this iconic structure. Mayor Doug McCallum and his SSC cohorts should look at White Rock and realize that this kind of control-freak agenda led to the

previous mayor and White Rock Coalition getting decimated at the polls. If SSC members keep up this kind of senseless behaviour, expect history to repeat itself, only this time the house cleaning will happen at Surrey city hall.

the next election? Does that mean the entire costly process must be unwound?

Request that your child be excused from the FSAs Dear parents, We work hard to give your children the best education possible. Because we care, it’s our professional responsibility to raise our concerns about the Foundation Skills Assessment (FSA). Standardized tests like FSAs for Grades 4 and 7 students take time away from classroom activities, do not count for marks, and have not been meaningfully used to support student learning.

FSA results provide no new resources or other funding for classrooms. The misuse of FSA results to rank schools and the inadequate protection of student privacy are other major concerns. We are urging the provincial government to work with teachers and others to protect school and student information, rather than proceed with this year’s FSA. These are some reasons why BC teachers recommend that parents of Grade 4 and 7 students write to their school principal to request that their children be excused from the FSAs. More information, including a sample withdrawal letter, is available at bctf.ca/fsa.aspx.

Surrey chief constable says ‘comprehensive’ public engagement coming Surrey Police Service has ‘good momentum,’ Norm Lipinski says Tom Zytaruk tom.zytaruk@surreynowleader.com

Chief Constable Norm Lipinski, in charge of the Surrey Police Service that’s set to replace the Surrey RCMP, told the police board last week that four more executive positions have been posted, the fledgling department has “good momentum,” and that “comprehensive” community engagement will be done this year. “We’re walking through the steps of obtaining those applications and through the interview process that will eventually lead to an offer of employment,” he said.

It’s not often that your competition is what inspires you to start and grow your business, but for Dave and George Guthrie, hard-working young electricians working in Surrey, that’s exactly what happened. It was the late 1970s, and Dave’s many friends in the industry encouraged him to start up a lighting business. They promised that they’d be loyal customers, and over 40 years later, Pine Lighting has grown from a small basement operation to three large stores in B.C. It’s still a family-run business, with three generations involved over the years. Dave’s daughter Kiersten Hincks runs the Kelowna store; Andrea is at the Victoria store, and Erin McNab and Robert Guthrie are working in the Surrey store where Dave still works daily. His brother George works in the warehouse. Their first store was in Newton because they considered the area the “centre of Surrey” and the affordable rents were available. They named the store ‘Pine Lighting’ after the stand of pine trees across the street. The early ‘80s were a tough place to be in

the business world, with double-digit mortgages and real estate failures a daily occurrence. They weathered that storm and a few others over the years by exercising a simple mission that begins with communication — getting to know his customers and responding to them. Pine Lighting has an outstanding reputation for understanding customer needs and incorporating them into what’s available in the store. “We don’t really have ‘sales’ because we keep our product at an affordable price point. We’ve also adapted our inventory by listening and responding to our customer’s lighting preferences.” When Guthrie started the business in the 1970s, Surrey’s average home was a small footprint, rancher, or basement home. That’s changed a lot over the years, with new neighbours from all over the world making Newton their home and creating a niche market for different styles of interiors and exterior lighting designs. “That’s where we’ve changed over the years. Our customers have become good friends, and we’ve listened to what they are

GO! Online concert

Black History Month-timed showcase brings Dos Santos to Surrey Tom Zillich tom.zillich@surreynowleader.com

Krystle Dos Santos walked to the main stage of Surrey Arts Centre, set up some gear and later performed songs from her recent album, along with some choice covers. It was pretty much like any other gig for the New Westminster-based musician, expect there were no audience members seated in the theatre. Her “unplugged” performance, with Gavin Youngash on guitar, was recorded last week for the latest “Digital Stage” online concert hosted by Surrey Civic Theatres, for broadcast debut on Friday, Jan. 29, starting at 7 p.m. and ending with a live Q&A with Dos Santos. “We had a rug island on the stage and played mostly original songs and some to highlight a couple of Black female singers, to go along with Black History Month,” Dos Santos said of the free,

hour-long concert. It’s a very different experience with no audience, she admitted. “The applause is something you miss, that connection with people there. “I introduce each song and tell a tiny anecdote about each of them, for the most part. It’s a bit of banter, which I like. I’m not a performer who just plows through the song, because they all have some sort of story to tell.” The concert’s focus is Bloom/Burn, an award-winning album of R&B/soul songs released by Dos Santos last February, two weeks before COVID-19 was declared a global pandemic. The timing wasn’t great for the Edmonton-raised musician/actor. “I wanted to tour and do some more with it, for sure,” she sighed during a phone call. On the bright side, the album helped Dos Santos

win the 2020 Western Canadian Music Award for R&B Artist of the Year. In recent years Dos Santos has kept busy with a number of diverse projects, including acting in the Arts Club’s “Dreamgirls” musical, a “History of Motown” tour of schools she does with a band, and also “Hey Viola!,” a new cabaret-style musical she co-created about Canadian civil rights trailblazer Viola Desmond. Last summer, she was featured in New Westminster’s Uptown Live virtual concerts at Massey Theatre. In Surrey, she has performed at the Tree Lighting Festival at city hall and also the big Canada Day celebration in Cloverdale, among other gigs. Surrey’s “Digital Stage” series of shows is designed to help people staying home connect with the performing arts. Dos Santos’ performance will be available to watch until March 12 on

song was fully produced with horns, strings and all these other lovely bells and whistles, while for the Bloom/Burn showcase I’m stripping my performance down to the songs and the writing,” she said. “I’m accompanied by just a guitar, which is exciting, because a song really has to have strength to stand like that on its own, and it gives me and (Youngash) a real chance to showcase the songs in a much more intimate way.” Dos Santos has been involved in the performing arts since she was a teenager, and recorded her first New Westminster-based musician album in 2008, the start of Krystle Dos Santos in a promo her solo music career. photo.

So, I recorded my album first and I got into music that way. More interest happened career-wise initially, but I’m still very much involved in theatre, so I’d say my creativity is a big mix of everything.” For songs and more details about Dos Santos, including some local live gigs, visit krystledossantos.com. Also this month, until Jan. 31, Surrey’s “Digital Stage” is showing Why Not Theatre’s family comedy-drama “A Brimful of Asha” online for a “pay what you can” price, with $15 suggested. Writer/actor Ravi Jain co-stars with his mother, Asha Jain, in the play, about arranged marriage. Also planned for “Digital Stage,” from Feb. 12-28, is a performance of “Fifty Shades of Vinyl: A Canadian Parody,” HappySad Theatre’s tribute to Stuart McLean, “with a saucy twist.”

Colours evoke memories of Africa Alex Browne Black Press Media

Painter Ilona Scott-Barzen says there’s an old adage that comes from her native South Africa. “They say you can take the African out of Africa, but you can’t take Africa out of the African,” said the artist, who signs her work I. Scott. That’s very true of her current series of vibrantly-hued acrylic works that render African figures in a more symbolic than representational fashion – gestural icons that eschew individual detail. Using very simplified forms, Scott-Barzen successfully evokes the cooking pot-carrying families of rural areas; the grace of strong, composed, self-assured women in traditional garb; the jaunty attitudes of gossiping young urban girls; even the powerful dignity of spear-carrying Serengeti warriors dedicated to defending homes and families from predators. “(The art) is a testament to who they are and what they represent,” she said. “They’re not depicted as individuals but rather as a collective, which is very much an African idea.” Scott-Barzen, who in daily life is a lawyer, came to Canada in 2010 to work with a company providing legal-expense insurance. But her painting sideline has been connecting well

South Surrey-based artist Ilona Scott-Barzen with one of her warm-hued, distinctive African paintings. (Contributed photo) with Canadian viewers, she said, leading to steady sales of originals and smaller reproductions, and some commissions. But she does miss the opportunity of being able to present her art in physical gallery settings during the current pandemic. “I have thought about doing an online show, but it’s not the same thing – you don’t get the full experience of the colours,” said the South Surrey resident. “With COVID, life is like a desert, so this is a little warmth coming into the house.” Her subjects are inspired by the places and people she grew up with, she said, augmented by some refresher photo research. “I was born in Johannesburg – I’m a fourth generation African – and I lived there all my life until I came to Canada. I remember

running around barefoot as a kid – everyone does that – and the ground is red, a red clay. I think reds are a very big part of my paintings because of that.” Scott-Barzen said she first took up art while she was still in South Africa, joining a group involved in painting on fabric with acrylics. “I thought that would be a good medium to try, and I learned all of my techniques from that,” she said, noting that her early work is far different from her current style, which emerged in 2012, after she came to Canada. ScottBarzen acknowledges that a certain nostalgia may have played a role in forming it. “Being apart from Africa does highlight your memories of it – they become bigger and brighter in you, painting your African world,” she said.

I decided to give Tracey Bosch an opportunity… and boy, did he ever deliver! Tracey took the time to understand my needs... marketed in a major way and ended up delivering results faster than I ever thought possible. In fact, I was able to sell my property for more money and in a timeframe that would have taken any other realtor almost double the time... all while sitting back and letting Tracey handle the details… I’ll definitely be using him for ALL of my future Real Estate Needs and I highly recommend Tracey to anyone who is looking for an outstanding experience.” Trevor M.

What Tracey’s Clients Have to Say Tracey did a great job of managing multiple stakeholders and selling the property fast. Not much more you could ask for Scott H We highly recommend Tracey Bosch as your choice of realtor. Having over 30 years as a realtor in the lower mainland, and obviously loving his job, Tracey provided effective advice and tips to help sell our home, which in turn provided a visual improvement to our home and resulted in a better experience for our viewers. We were so impressed with Tracey’s professionalism and likeable manner that we chose to use his services for our home sale and our home purchase. Responses to our texts, emails and phone calls were extremely prompt. Also, his use of upto-date technology both saved us time and helped us maximize on property showings through both the sale and purchase of our properties. By having Tracey accompany us through a handful of property viewings right at the start of our property search allowed him to not only hear our likes and dislikes but also pick up on our reactions and body language in order to help him help us in our search for a suitable property. We liked that we could rely on Tracey’s extensive successful experience but at the same time we felt our needs were being considered. The feedback between us flowed effortlessly. Thank you, Tracey, for your service! Shawnee L.

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Wayne Gary Joseph Blomme January 2021 at the age of 75. The world really has gone to hell in a hand basket now. Wayne was born on March 13, 1945, the oldest son of Frank and Alice Blomme and brother to Dale (Shirley), Bryan, Barry (Carole), Karen and Ken (Edna) Blomme. He graduated from North Surrey High School in 1963 and worked in the family mushroom farm business until he and brother Dale took over from their Father and formed D&W Mushrooms Ltd.  He was on the Board of Directors of the Fraser Valley Mushroom Growers Marketing Association and was hired as General Manager under the trade name of Money’s Mushrooms in the late 70’s. He became President of the Canadian Mushroom Growers Association and was widely recognized and respected in the industry throughout North America, England and Australia.  Wayne was a wonderful, generous person who loved family gatherings, always had a laugh and a quip and was a friend to all who knew him.  He was a proud, affectionate and supportive father to all his children and adored his six grandchildren, two great-grandchildren and all his nieces and nephews, who were an endless source of pride and amusement to him. Predeceased by his parents, Frank and Alice Blomme, his brother Bryan and his oldest daughter, Lori, he is survived by his children Lana, Leah (Kelly) Maclean (Felicia) and Alison (Martin), and his loving wife of 35 years, Patricia. Many thanks to the medical team at Surrey Memorial Hospital who provided him with such wonderful and compassionate care.   A Celebration of his life will be held when COVID restrictions are lifted and we can celebrate in the warmth and summer sunshine that he so enjoyed.  In lieu of flowers, please support the BC Cancer Agency. We know he’s relaxing on a hot and sunny beach somewhere, he will be missed and loved always. We love you, Wayne

Look for me in Rainbows In the morning sunrise when all the world is new, Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you. Time for me to leave you, I won’t say goodbye;

Look for me in rainbows, high up in the sky. In the evening sunset, when all the world is through, Just look for me and love me, and I’ll be close to you. It won’t be forever, the day will come and then My loving arms will hold you, when we meet again.

Time for us to part now, we won’t say goodbye; Look for me in rainbows, shining in the sky. Every waking moment, and all your whole life through Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you. Just wish me to be near you, And I’ll be there with you.

“Anything that helps people, that is his nature,” said Solomon, who walks in the Friday group. Solomon praised Attrell for adjusting the pace and routes to accommodate walkers of different ability. “He’s so intuitive about what people are able to do,” Solomon commented. As well, she said the club is helping the participants be less isolated, something that is a particular problem for seniors during the pandemic. Attrell agreed. “I live alone, and I hate to stay here by myself all day, and I like to walk,” Attrell summarized. Before he started the cub, he asked his doctor about possible coronavirus hazards in a group walk.

“If you maintain distance and wear masks, it’s better being out in the fresh air than indoors,” he was told. “We have to maintain that distance, and we’ve been really good about that, Attrell related. A popular route for the club is the Derek Doubleday Arboretum – when it’s dry out. Attrell is well-known as one of the top fund-raisers taking part in the annual 10 kilometre portion of the Langley Hospice Society’s Historic Half Marathon. Attrell was in his 80’s when he joined the hospice’s Supportive Steps walking group after his wife Eileen passed away in hospice, and has said it “pretty well saved my life.”

Prance said for his 111th birthday, Amenida is hoping to be able to celebrate once again. She added usually around 100 people, from dignitaries to family members “from all over the world,” attend. “I know we’re looking forward to inviting them back to spending that time with us.” A reporter with the Now-Leader attended Lee’s 109th birthday in 2019. He was born on Aug. 27, 1910. Meantime, Prance said Amenida is prepped for whenever Fraser Health gives them the go-ahead for the second dose of the vaccine. “I wanted to be prepared in case Fraser Health says to us, ‘Hey, we have enough doses for your seniors, can you be ready in 24 hours?’ When we first started the initial discussion with Fraser Health on the vaccine, and the date, we started being prepared, we organized our team and it was

Senior Living Pandemic

Students connect with seniors through letters Creekside students planning to send more cards for Valentine’s Day Lauren Collins lauren.collins@surreynowleader.com

Surrey’s Creekside Elementary is hoping to continue writing letters to seniors for more upcoming holidays. The elementary school, along with many others in the district, wrote letters to seniors over the holiday season, and now the school wants to “carry the holiday cheer into the new year, by writing even more letters for seniors leading up to Valentine’s Day and Family Day,” according to the Surrey school district. Creekside principal Margaret Geddes said the idea to write Christmas cards came from a London Drugs campaign that distributed tags to anyone who wanted to write to a senior. Geddes told her teachers, who were enthusiastic, but the store ran out of tags before they could write any cards. “People in my school were disappointed, but I said, ‘Wait a second, who knows a senior who’s spending Christmas alone?’” she said. “They knew their grandmother in a care facility or their neighbour, and we wrote about 14 people on a list, including two volunteers in our school

Students at Creekside Elementary in Surrey wrote letters to seniors over the holidays, and are planning to write more for Valentine’s Day and Family Day. (Photo: surreyschools.ca) who haven’t been able to be here this year.” Geddes said the response from seniors led to a “unique connection” that her classes want to maintain, prompting the idea for the upcoming holidays. “Most of the seniors emailed or phoned because it was a surprise to get these gifts and cards,” she said. “It’s like having a pen pal. The kids were really excited, they thought it was really important to reach out to our seniors. People want to be able to show that they care, and here was a little way to do it.” The district said the Creekside Elementary normally invites grandparents to the school for Family Day (Feb. 15), and while that can’t happen this year, Geddes added the school is excited to still connect with seniors. Geddes said she has shared

the idea with other principals and even looked into finding retired teachers and principals to receive cards from schools. While she has 325 Creekside students participating, she said other schools have the potential to connect with even more seniors. “It’s such a simple idea, and yet it’s so powerful,” she said. “I’d encourage other schools to do it. It didn’t really take a lot of effort and it had a really positive impact on both sides.” At the start of the pandemic, two students at Fleetwood Park Secondary (who have since graduated) decided to create an initiative to connect teens and seniors to ease feelings of isolation. The students, Tina Yong and Jasmine Chahal, created Quaranteens and connected about 50 students across the Lower Mainland with at least six care homes.

For the past 45 years, it has been our mission to provide loving and holistic care to the Elders we serve. Despite the many restrictions we all have faced, the global pandemic has allowed us to find new ways to adapt, connect, celebrate life, and have FUN! The Pandemic Party CD project involved the heart and determination of 3 music therapists as they carefully recorded over 30 Elders (joined by some brave staff) over the course of many months of hard work. Tender tears, big belly laughs, as well as a renewed sense of purpose and pride for our Elders – this is their treasured and tangible legacy. Gentleness, humour, strength, and a deep capacity for love are only a few of the attributes that shine through the melodies. Now, we would like to share the music we have created with you! Proceeds from all CD sales will help to further enhance our Elders’ comfort and enjoyment of life here at Kinsmen Lodge.

SURREY SHARES: Videos reveal ‘raw, honest’ emotions Continued from B11 new friend – she and Nielsen hit it off and remain connected – and a new understanding of herself. The South Surrey resident has also discovered a passion for writing. “When I’ve been on holiday, I keep a diary, but I was never really a writer,” Young explained. “But I’m enjoying it so much. When you get to be my age, it’s difficult to find interesting, new things to do,” she continued. “This is something I can do on my own, at home and will bring me satisfaction.” The program is funded by the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program, open to Surrey residents aged 55 and older, and – due to COVID19 – was adapted to be held online and over the phone. Recruitment for a second round got underway last August, and those participants are to record their stories in January. Facilitator and life coach Jessika Houston described the newly shared stories as “beautiful (and) heartfelt.” “These videos

In addition to Nielsen and Young, the first cohort included Manjit Johal, Wilson Hu, Bob Milliken, Sandra Sherwood and Andrew Kay. Johal shares her experience as a nurse, helping a dying woman tend to unfinished business; while Hu speaks about his journey from China to Surrey, and the stops and challenges along

the way. Milliken discusses the crisis of plastic in the oceans, adding the voices of two other characters to help answer the question of what can one person do about it; and Sherwood talks about “the essential relationship with the natural world.” “One of the great things about my childhood was actually playing outside,” Sherwood begins. “Nature was really a great place to make friendships a lot better.” Kay tells of his and his wife’s “challenges, joys and surprising moments” when they adopted their son in B.C.

Input sought from seniors about city’s walking routes Nick Greenizan Black Press Media

The City of Surrey has launched a new survey aimed at improving walking routes for seniors. Through the survey, which can be filled out online at surrey.ca/agefriendly until Feb. 15, the city hopes to “learn what is most important for seniors when they walk or wheel, using mobility devices, to various destinations in their neighbourhood,” a news release issued Jan. 20 notes. The information-gathering stage is the first phase of the project. Data from the survey will be used to develop tools and resources that map the best routes to local amenities, including community centres,

parks, medical clinics and stores. Additionally, the city hopes the information will help it identify and prioritize key areas in need of infrastructure improvements. “City of Surrey is leading the way in supporting healthy active aging through its Age Friendly Strategy for Seniors, a framework that ensures seniors, families and caregivers are supported through advocacy, policy, partnering and service delivery,” said Mayor Doug McCallum in the release. “The pedestrian routes project aims to develop a platform that will increase pedestrian travel amongst seniors while supporting improved health and mobility.” Surrey’s Age Friendly Strategy was created in 2014

and according to the city, “is a city-wide framework for working together to ensure seniors are supported and can remain actively engaged and safe in our community.” The survey – and plan to improve walking routes – is a joint effort between the city and the Surrey Intercultural Senior Social Inclusion Partnership Network, which is a collective initiative funded by Employment and Social Development Canada under the New Horizons for Seniors Program. It includes six organizations: Progressive Intercultural Community Services; the City of Surrey; Seniors Come Share Society; Sources BC; Semiahmoo House Society and the Fraser Region Aboriginal Friendship Centre Association.

B.C. care-home visitor access to expand by March, Dix says Staff, residents, essential visitors top priorities for COVID-19 vaccine Tom Fletcher Black Press Media

Most of B.C.’s longterm care home staff and residents have received their first vaccination for COVID-19, with essential visitors and assisted living facilities also included in the first phase of B.C.’s vaccine program. Vaccine protection is expected to allow visitor restrictions to be eased by March, Health Minister Adrian Dix said as the ministry updated its vaccination program to reach the general population by April. “What you’re going to see in the month of March is

changes in both social activity within care homes to allow more activity within the care home on a normal day,” Dix said Jan. 22. “And, in addition to that, changes with respect to visitation, because once people and residents are made safe, the immunization process is going to allow a lot of things to happen, including more visits from family memories and loved ones and friends.” B.C.’s Seniors Advocate Isobel Mackenzie reported in November on close family members being refused access to elderly relatives in care facilities, with restrictions going beyond public health orders that define who is an “essential visitor.” People used to providing meal and grooming support for elderly parents were turned away as care homes struggled to avoid deadly virus outbreaks among frail
