School board chair calls on BC Liberal MLAs to make families a priority

Province should be ashamed: McNally Sheila Reynolds Black Press

Vulnerable students and their families are being treated like “second-class citizens,” says Surrey’s Board of Education. The board is asking for a one-time $2-million grant to compensate for what it calls a flawed funding formula that has seen local kids shortchanged for more than a decade. In one of its most strongly worded state-

ments of late, the local school board says that despite repeated assurances from the last five Liberal education ministers, the government has “refused to change” the CommunityLINK funding formula. CommunityLINK helps pay for things such as meals for low-income students, initiatives at inner-city schools and counselling for atrisk children and youth. The Surrey School District is B.C.’s largest,

with more than 12 per cent of the province’s total public school enrolment, but on a per-student basis, only receives a fraction of the CommunityLINK funding provided to many other districts. For example, while Vancouver receives about $8.7 million annually, Surrey gets about $3.7 million. Victoria, with a third the number of students, receives about the same amount as Surrey. This year, it’s estimated about $400,000

will have to be taken from Surrey’s general operating budget to supplement the school meal program alone. Board chair Laurae McNally is calling on BC Liberals to make good on their promise to make families a priority. “The government should be ashamed that the most vulnerable children and families in our district have been treated like secondclass citizens for more than a decade.”

White Rock debates

Nine eye MP’s job Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Mud-slinging, comic relief, eyerolling groans and enthusiastic applause – attendees of the allcandidates’ forum at First United Church got the full spectrum Tuesday. And they – candidates and constituents alike – didn’t hesitate to speak their minds. As the nine contenders for the South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale seat shared opinions and promises on issues ranging from support for seniors to banning oil tankers to compassion for women facing an unexpected pregnancy, citizens were quick to voice their thoughts on the candidates’ views. Christian HeriNewton- tage Party candiMike Schouten North Delta date spoke about a need  page 3 to better support women with unanticipated pregnancies. Schouten’s call, “from the heart,” came in answering a question on whether he supports ensuring health care is available to all people, regardless of their ability to pay. A lack of support leads women to make difficult decisions, Schouten said. “The conclusion they come to is to abort the child,” Schouten said. “Our humanity demands better of us.”

South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale candidates listen as incumbent Russ Hiebert addresses his – and his Conservative party’s – record. The comment prompted attendee Pummy Kaur, a longtime social activist and former federal NDP candidate – to note a lack of support for women is not the problem. “Women don’t need counselling, men need to keep it in their pants,” Kaur blurted from the pews, much to the crowd’s amusement. The forum, hosted by the Surrey-

Langley-White Rock chapter of the Council of Canadians, drew about 250 people to First United Church, where individual candidates had two minutes to answer each of four questions posed by the council, as well as one minute on each of four questions drawn from those submitted by attendees. (After more than two hours, attendees voted to

Opposing candidates repeatedly attacked incumbent Russ Hiebert – who has held the riding for seven years – and his Conservative party’s record. Prime Minister Stephen Harper “wants us to forget that he squandered a $12-billion surplus…

by September 2008,” said Brian Marlatt, the Progressive Canadian candidate. “Who will give Steve the heave? Who will hold Russ accountable?” Liberal hopeful Hardy Staub – who recently spoke out as a Conservative against Hiebert, before announcing his own candidacy –  see page 4

candidate, many more will decide who they are voting for based on the party and national leader. Thus Dhaliwal’s fate is tied up to some degree on how Michael Ignatieff is perceived. Other than last week’s expulsion of candidate Alan Saldanha from the Green party ranks for an offensive comment on Facebook, the Fleetwood-Port Kells race has been quiet. The Liberals were late in naming Pam Dhanoa as their candidate, and incumbent Conservative MP Nina Grewal is again being challenged by the NDP’s Nao Fernando. It appears that there won’t be much change there, as Grewal won fairly comfortably in 2008. The NDP may well finish second instead of third. The South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale race has nine candidates, with most of them vying for a large contingent of centre-right votes. Incumbent Conservative Russ Hiebert is being challenged by former Conservatives Hardy Staub (for the Liberals) and independent Aart Looye. Christian Heritage Party Mike Schouten is also running an energetic campaign. The actual number of votes received by the major challengers will be interesting to see, but it will be tough to unseat Hiebert in such a staunchly conservative riding. No matter what your riding, take the time to vote. If voter turnout goes up dramatically, the results could be vastly different. Frank Bucholtz writes Fridays for the Peace Arch News.

news Elementary school drops English-speaking program

Laronde completely immersed in French Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

Laronde Elementary will not have an English-speaking program next year. The majority of parents have chosen to relocate their children to neighbouring schools after the future of the program was thrown in question due to low enrolment numbers. “Most have decided to take advantage of having the opportunity to attend another school of their choice,” district spokesperson Doug Strachan said. The school, at 1880 Laronde Dr., will teach only French immersion beginning this fall. The majority of the 72 students currently

enrolled in the English program are to relocate to Ocean Cliff next year, with the rest having chosen Ray Shepherd or Chantrell Creek, Strachan said. The news comes two months after parents were informed that an English kindergarten and Grade 1 class was not expected to be viable for September, with just two Laronde students enrolled in kindergarten this year and numbers not expected to rise. The letter was sent to parents from Surrey School District assistant Supt. Rick Ryan in February, and was followed a few weeks later by another form, which gave parents in all grades the opportunity to request their children be transferred to neighbouring schools.

“If they wanted to choose to go to a neighbouring elementary school (then) we would accommodate that – if they wanted that stability and not wait to find out later whether there was enough numbers in their class or whether it would have to be a multi-grade class or no class at all,” Strachan said. “The parents have responded in the majority, the strong majority, to say they’d rather have the stability and also… keep friends of their kids together, and have chosen to leave the school.” Strachan said 10 students’ parents have not chosen another school – three Grade 5s, six Grade 6s and one Grade 7. Because the number isn’t sufficient to continue the

English program, it is being cancelled, and parents are to choose alternate schools. “It’s a difficult situation to be faced with,” Strachan said. “We were hopeful that we could continue the program, but at the same time, we needed to prepare and give parents as much notice as possible so there was as little disruption as possible if there wasn’t the enrolment for it to be practical to have classes.” Whether the English program will return is unclear. “Nothing is permanent,” Strachan said. “This is a reaction to the realities that we see right now and for the predictable and foreseeable future.”

Canuck fever hits Nigeria A Surrey engineer is spreading love for Vancouver Canucks as they work their way through playoffs. Because of his volunteer work, Monty Raisinghani was chosen by the city last year to carry the Olympic torch. He’s working with a French company building an oilprocessing platform off the coast of Africa. And on weekends, he works with orphans at the Light of Hope Orphanage in Nigeria. He recently showed the orphans video clips of the Canucks at work. “I thought, ‘Hey, with the playoffs coming, why not spend the day and talk about hockey and watch YouTube clips,’” Raisinghani said. “It’s been awesome, these kids are really receptive to it. It’s something that’s totally new to them.” They 40 children had seen field hockey before, but were gobsmacked at seeing the event on ice. “You can’t bring ice down here, but we’re going to be playing street hockey down here.” – Kevin Diakiw

Coalition comments raise tempers

Newton candidates take part in federal debate Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Laddie and Rose Kodak are pretty sure they’re voting Conservative in the May 2 federal election, but they showed up to an all-candidates meeting in North Delta Tuesday evening to make sure they’re wellacquainted with the competition. The two seniors have 70 years combined teaching experience, so they’re familiar with NDP candidate Jinny Sims, former president of the BC Teachers’ Federation. The all-candidates meeting for Newton-North Delta was attended by five federal hopefuls, including Ravi Gill (independent), Sam Hammond (Communist), Mani Fallon (Conservative), incumbent Sukh Dhaliwal (Liberal) and Sims. Green party candidate Liz Walker did not attend. More than 80 people shoehorned into a small room at the Delta Lion Pub to hear the candidates speak. Questions were taken from the audience, vetted and asked by moderator Beau Simpson.

The first question asked what candidates would do to protect quality access to health care. Hammond said the problem isn’t for lack of wealth in this country; it’s to do with ownership and distribution of wealth. Money now slated for tax cuts and billions committed for the purchase of fighter planes could be better spent on health care, he said. Fallon said the Conservatives have increased federal health transfers to the provinces by 33 per cent during their time in government. Gill said it will require the construction of more hospitals. He noted health care must be dealt with locally, where there’s a better awareness of needs. Dhaliwal said the Liberals have always been supportive of universal health care and vow to increase spending on the service by six per cent annually. Sims said Canada’s health-care system is “a gift from Tommy Douglas,” referring to leader of the Co-operative Commonwealth

She said money going to corporate tax cuts and war planes could instead be spent on more doctors, nurses and in-home support care. The next question asked how the candidates would protect seniors. Dhaliwal said it’s important for people to be able to “retire with dignity.” For that, the government needs to protect the Canada Pension Plan. Sims said seniors “built our province and our nation.” She agreed that it’s critical to protect pensions,

and said it’s also important to have employment-insurance extensions. Hammond said too many people in this country, seniors and young alike, live in poverty. Fallon said that in order to protect seniors, government must maintain protections everyone wants, including a viable health-care system, serious policies to reduce crime and a strong economy. That would include allowing income-splitting (the process of redirecting income within a family to take advantage of the lower tax brackets, deductions and credits), she said.

Tempers began to flare when the spectre was raised of a coalition among the NDP, Liberals and the Bloc. Dhaliwal said the only time there was a coalition was when Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper joined forces with other parties to try to take down the Liberals. Sims called the discussion of coalitions a “bogeyman” that has no place in the formation of good policy. Hammond said there’s nothing wrong with a coalition, as long as its aim is to best represent the people who elected them. At the end of the evening, the Kodaks were unswayed by what they heard. “Did you believe any of that?” Laddie asked. “It was entertaining.” Rose wondered why so many of the answers seemed dodgy. “Why didn’t any of them answer the questions?”  See feature on the Newton-North Delta riding, page 27.

TransLink’s ‘next priority’ BC’s

Finest

Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

Bus service from South Surrey to Langley is one of TransLink’s top priorities. That’s according to TransLink CEO Ian Jarvis, who spoke to a business crowd during a South Surrey and White Rock Chamber of Commerce luncheon this week. Jarvis, an Ocean Park resident, said a bus route was already laid out for White Rock Centre to Langley but was cancelled before its scheduled launch in December 2009 due to funding shortfalls. The 531 bus was scheduled to run every half hour along 24 Avenue, bringing transit service to Grandview Corners, Morgan Crossing and Campbell Heights Industrial Park – areas that are in need of additional service, Jarvis said. In terms of bus networks, the connection is TransLink’s “next priority.” At Tuesday’s business lunch – held at Morgan Creek Golf and Country Club – Jarvis also addressed the end of the 351 as a single-seat bus ride from White Rock to Vancouver after the opening of the Canada Line. The change “was not without controversy,” he noted, referring to protests and petitions to keep the direct route. However, Jarvis said, redirecting the route to Bridgeport in Richmond has allowed improved frequency and expanded hours of service to Surrey buses, including the 351. He said the change has provided a more viable bus trip, “one I think is truly competitive with the car trip from White Rock to Downtown (Vancouver).” Jarvis also pointed to the City of Surrey’s plans to revitalize Whalley, and said TransLink needs to support those efforts with transit service. When asked by an audience member to comment on the tolling of bridges, Jarvis said that he personally thought “system” tolling to be most effective, as a GPS in vehicles would track when, where and how much drivers use roads. However, “the technology is there, but not quite there,” Jarvis said, noting the mayor’s council on regional transportation is the best place for such conversations. “The discussion between the mayors of the province is the right way to go.” In response to

Time to settle old scores n a perfect world – a perfect world for your friendly neighbourhood editorial writer, that is – Surrey-Cloverdale MLA Kevin Falcon would be the BC Liberal premier facing off with the BC NDP’s Adrian Dix, now that both parties have chosen new leaders. Instead, we have a close second of a journo’s dream, with unelected Premier Christy Clark going head-to-head with recently selected Dix, as the former also heads into a byelection in Vancouver-Point Grey next month. While it could be argued that Clark and Dix will be formidable opponents – during recent leadership races Dix identified Clark as the BC Liberal he would most relish facing – the track records of both have shown Falcon would be his truer polar opposite. It’s just that instead of north and south, it’s more left versus right, especially if you listen to either man’s opponents describe his place in the farreaching political spectrum. In addition, we have a history in which neither man minced words when countering each other’s claims over Falcon’s former health ministry. Their debates would have provided reams of fodder for political analysts, potentially for years to come. While there will still likely be Dix-Falcon barbs traded – with Falcon now serving as the province’s high-ranking minister of finance – all eyes will be on Clark to see if she can rid herself of the albatross that former premier Gordon Campbell has left her: The HST, the sale of BC Rail… Dix, too, is not without his own crosses to bear. He will likely be spending much of the next general election trying to get voters to forget much of the late-1990s, when his party – then in power under the leadership of Glen Clark, to whom Dix was chief of staff – was no stranger to scandal, including the ‘fudge-it budget’ and the infamous Fast Cat fiasco. Or, perhaps, Dix will attempt to present history under a slightly different light, with the brighter spots reserved for our more recent struggles. No doubt Clark and Dix are both preparing for slings to come. Here’s hoping they fight the good fight admirably and respectably – with a few pointed barbs thrown in to keep the pundits in business.

87 responding that Darcie Clarke is now living in Coquitlam. Who knew? Not the review panel, apparently. The revelation prompted Attorney General Barry Penner to announce that officials will reconsider the decision. Among all of the recent offensive abuses of the criminal justice system, this one has to rank at the top. This case is so wrong, in so many ways. The mental disorder defence should have been discarded like the BS it was. Schoenborn should be sitting in a maximum security cell until he dies. In fact, evil creatures like him are fine justification for a fatal injection. Instead, he lounges in a hospital, which has a review board that actually will consider such a monster’s request to lark about the community – in which his ex-wife lives! The experts weren’t aware of the latter, they said. And that’s so wrong, too. Wouldn’t her whereabouts be a critical factor in any such decision? Penner needs to do more than order these officials to reconsider their appalling decision. They should all be sacked. The entire “review” process needs to be gutted of its touchy-feely PC tripe, and brought to focus on what really matters – like public safety, victims’ rights, and some justice for three dead little kids. For twisted freaks like Schoenborn, there should be no review at all. His sanity is a moot point. The justice system, on the other hand... Andrew Holota is the editor of The Abbotsford News.

Private clinics don’t ease wait Editor: The Americans are our biggest market for our goods and services. They pay 50 per cent more for their private health care than we do for our public health care. Canadian public health care makes our products significantly cheaper to market. This competitive advantage that we enjoy is being lost as more of our health care is privatized. Canada now has the longest hospital waiting lists of all the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) countries. Long public waiting lists for medical tests and diagnostics are forcing people into private clinics for timely care. The increasing number of private for-profit clinics is not easing pressure on the public system, but instead they are increasing the wait times for public hospitals as they bleed necessary resources away. Surrey Memorial Hospital emergency department currently has 90,000 visits per year, with 100,000 visits projected by 2020. We are not building nearly enough to meet even short-term capacity. Surrey has one-fifth of the provincial average of acute-care beds. We are grossly under-served. We pray for Tim Hortons care in Surrey. We are on the U.S. border but we are not yet absorbed. We are in a no-man’s land. Let’s renew our fight for Canadian public health care before it’s just a memory. Patrick O’Connor, Surrey

Few move here to look at trees Editor: Re: Stop tree cutting for views: mayor, April 15. Is there any common sense left? This council appears to only have black-and-white ‘views’ of the world and cannot seem to rely on any common sense when it comes to the trees and the views. We would suggest relatively few people buy homes on the bluff to look at trees. We have lived and looked after the green space on Dolphin Street for years. We have planted the grass, fertilized, mowed it and planted the garden at the top of the rise to prevent soil erosion. We diligently pick up the dog poop that dog walkers leave behind, and we trim the plum tree each year. We love the green space with the large wonderful cedar that grows on it. But… we have requested three times in the past six years for unsightly trees to be removed from across the lane – shrubs which have been left neglected and uncared for over the past 17 years. The City of White Rock takes our taxes. It employs an arbourist but leaves the trees uncared for. Then it has the nerve to tell us that not only do we have to do the

work of soliciting the neighbours for agreement to remove the trees but then pay $125 fee along with $10,000 – the cost could be as high as $15,000 – to remove and replace the trees and pay for a soil engineer. So, if we somehow manage to come up with the tree money, who will care for the new trees? The city has done nothing in the past 17 years; why should I expect them to now? We would suggest to the council that White Rock is not known for its tree views, but relies wholly on the beach and water views. The policies should reflect that this is a beach town and known for the fun summer activities that include water views. John & Patricia Samson, White Rock

Meter usage hardly smart Editor: Re: Province going Gaga over smart meters, March 16. Columnist Tom Fletcher uses hateful insults and scientific halftruths to argue that smart meters are not a health hazard. The thousands of people who have complained of neurological and immunological symptoms caused by smart meters are not “ignorant and superstitious,” but may suffer a physiological condition called electrohypersensitivity or EHS.

EHS is not recognized as a medical diagnosis, however it is accepted as a functional impairment in Sweden, and the Canadian Human Rights Commission recognizes it as an environmental sensitivity and classifies it as a disability. Local governments in the U.S. have called for a roll-back of the smartmeter program in light of growing evidence of health problems. The California Public Utilities Commission has recommended that people be given the choice to opt out, and the governor of Maine has spoken out of residents’ right to refuse the wireless meters. One more reason to take a second look at the smart-meter program. Ed Rubin, Surrey

An all-candidates meeting in White Rock Tuesday attracted all nine federal candidates to First United Church.

Party politics plays part at polls Editor: Once again it is election time in Canada, and once again I have received an Elections Canada card in the mail informing Lillian Nice that she is registered to cast a ballot in this important event. This would not be remarkable except for the fact that Lillian passed away approximately 20 years ago, according to old-timers living in my apartment building. She and Mike lived here in my suite for many years. Mike survived her for a decade and died about 10 years ago. His name was taken off the voters list. Lillian, by some twist of fate, was not and she is still expected to vote in every election. Perhaps Mike got taken off the list because he was a member of the NDP. Maybe all these years his sweetie had been voting for a more respectable party and, as a result, she was kept on the list as a reward. At any rate, if Lillian could read all the mail she keeps getting from our member of Parliament, she might by now be a Conservative. I have not been forwarding it, however, as I do not know which place she has ended up in. Every time there is an election and I receive Lillian’s card in the mail, I think about her. Am I meant to cast her vote on her behalf, perhaps as an absentee ballot? If so, should I go with the NDP, like Mike would have wanted her to? Then again, it disturbs me somewhat when I think that the people in charge of the voters list are the same folks who are running the hospitals, dealing with global warming, and sending our young people to Afghanistan where they risk life or permanent injury, and they may end up doing things they will try to forget for the rest of their lives. Lillian, if you’re somewhere reading this, send me a sign. Bill Piket, White Rock Q I found the recent four-party debates very telling. The three ego amigos, better known as the coalition, systematically cherry-picked issues from the recent Conservative budget – the same budget they found so wanting as to drive us into an unwanted and untimely election. Thankfully, it seems many Canadians see their behaviour for what it is. Namely, a desperate last

attempt to seize power – at our cost. Not to be deterred, Iggy, Gilles and Jack continue to bat out foul balls – trivial issues – daily in the hope Canadians will chase them like gullible puppies. But we who manage our household finances know there are many similarities to managing our country. It’s all about the economy, having jobs and income to fund public programs after we have provided for own food and shelter. The aging demographics are and will create heavy demands on our health-care system. It’s not about politics and no politician can wave a magic money wand to stop this grey-haired tsunami. So ask yourself, why are we the economic envy of the world having come through the recent recession? Do you really want to risk another minority government or worse yet change horses in the middle of a river of recovery? I, for one, think not. Dennis Smith, White Rock Q Stephen Harper’s arrogant claim he will end funding to political parties if he gets elected reflects the real power grab in this election. If he does this, it effectively cripples the democratic process Harper’s Conservatives get support from corporations in this country and are well-funded. Other parties require the support of the people through subsidies. If Harper cuts off funding to political parties, that means he seeks absolute power. This alone is reason enough not to elect a Harper government. Ken Hollas, Surrey Q I have been appalled by the treatment by the media of Green party members – firstly leader Elizabeth May, and then South Surrey-White Rock-Surrey candidate Larry Colero. Thank you for bringing attention to the exclusion of Colero from the local all-candidates profile broadcast by CBC (Green candidate seeing red over CBC exclusions, April 8). I feel that I, and all constituents, have a right to hear what each of the candidates has to say, and to have an opportunity to assess for myself their qualities – and what they may bring to the job of MLA.

Victim’s parents attend teen’s dangerous-driving trial Sheila Reynolds Black Press

Sanjeeve Sharma’s parents couldn’t contain their emotions as the teen driver charged in connection with a fatal 2009 car crash that killed their son made his first appearance in court Wednesday. The accused, now 18 years old, wore baggy jeans and a patterned brown hoodie as he stood before the judge. He cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act. Tall, with a goatee, short hair and an earring in his left ear, the young man stared straight ahead as he stood briefly before a Surrey Provincial Court judge. Sanjay Sharma, however, looked right at the accused and called him a “motherf-----,” while Sara Sharma wept openly, clutching a framed photo of her

Motion cheered A suggestion that White Rock put a moratorium on cutting trees for views pending the outcome of an ongoing review of the city’s policy on the practice evoked cheers from a select group of people at council Monday. Mayor Catherine Ferguson presented the notice of motion in light of evidence Policy 611 “has proven to be divisive,” does not outline the long-term effects of such a policy and is under review. The issue of cutting trees for views has been a contentious one since council voted in January to allow the removal of trees on city property on Royal Avenue, after residents complained trees blocked their view. At least three more applications have since been received. In her notice of motion, Ferguson asked that all applications be immediately stopped until staff present council with recommendations for amendments. Cheers erupted when Ferguson finished her notice. She called for order, then moved to adjourn the meeting. The motion is to be be considered by council at its May 9 meeting. – Tracy Holmes

Three years for youths who fatally beat teen Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Last week, Syd Skura finally cashed in the birthday present he received from his son, two years after the 18-year-old was beaten to death in a church parking lot in Cloverdale. He had been holding on to a Golf Town gift card ever since. The store honoured the certificate last week, when Skura purchased a GPS range finder. The one condition his son had when he gave him the gift, Skura said, was that he buy something they both could use. On Wednesday, Syd Skura attended the sentencing hearing of two youth convicted in December

sentenced the two teens to the maximum three years allowable for manslaughter under the Youth Criminal Justice Act. Under the act, the youth cannot be identified publicly. The youth who sucker-punched Skura, knocking him to the ground, was given credit for 13 months served, so he will remain in custody for another 23 months. The youth who stomped on Skura after the punch has already been in jail for two years, and was released Wednesday. The beating lasted from 15 to 18 seconds, Stromberg-Stein said. “No one expected another to lose his life,” she said. “But that’s the reality.”

ou’re a machine,” Lyda Salatian tells a newcomer, a volunteer hard at work pulling ivy branches on a trail at Campbell Valley Regional Park. The volunteer is one of more than 20 that will break a sweat on a cool Sunday morning, a good 10-minute walk from the parking lot. Among them are teenagers, seniors, even families with small children. Equipped with gloves and shears provided by Metro Vancouver Regional Parks workers, and powered by homemade muffins and granola bars, the volunteers will spend the next three hours removing the invasive ivy plants from the nutrient-starved trees. One woman from White Rock says she’s helping out because she’s a regular visitor to the park. Another says she brought her kids to teach them that it can be fun to volunteer outdoors. It’s this sense of community that’s in the mind of Salatian, bringing together likeminded people who feel the need to help the environment, but may not know where to start. Until now.

It’s called the Lower Mainland Green Team.

(Just weeks later, planting and restoration events have already taken place in Maple Ridge, Blackie Spit Park and Tynehead Regional Park.) Salatian, a self-described uber-organizer who hasn’t driven a car since 2003, says the purpose of the Green Team is to bring people together outdoors.

Boost for playground Playground equipment for the Kensington Prairie Community Centre is the focus of a recent donation to the City of Surrey from the Kensington Prairie Ladies Club. Last week, club members – all of whom have had children that attended Kensington Prairie Elementary – presented a cheque for $2,500 to the city. The club formed during the Second World War to help families in the Kensington Prairie area. They have been active ever since, holding fundraisers to assist whenever the need arises. The grand opening of the Kensington Prairie Community Centre is to be held Sept. 24 at 11 am. For more information, visit www. surrey.ca/recreation

Hospital fundraising effort aims for $5 million Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation’s campaign to help bring new doctors to the region has received more than $3 million in donations so far, as efforts shift to the second half of a goal to raise $5 million by June 1. Pledges totalling $3,043,322 have been counted during the first 50 days of the 100 Days to Give campaign. The money raised will help the Foundation match a $5 million gift made by entrepreneur Jim Pattison by the time the new Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre opens in June. “We’re ahead of the game so far,” said foundation president and CEO Jane Adams. “But we need others during these remaining last days to support health care and help bring us to our goal.” The foundation’s 100 Days to Give campaign (www.100days. smhfoundation.com/) will help purchase innovative equipment to attract new doctors

to the region. The campaign has already recorded its first major success, with the recruitment of a new neurologist to Surrey. “This is one of the most difficult specialties to recruit,” said Adams. “We’re grateful to Jim Pattison and all the donors to this campaign for making this possible.” Donations so far include major gifts from Coast Capital Savings, Foxridge Homes, Surrey Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, Surrey Fire Fighters Charitable Society, North Surrey Lions, Silvano & Elga Patrignani and Family, Diamond Delivery, McQuarrie Hunter LLP, Laurmel/ Mainland Sand & Gravel Ltd., Heritage Office Furnishings Ltd., Jim and Sally Wassall, hospital physicians and a pledge from a private foundation. Fraser Health’s new Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre will be unique in offering day surgery,

diagnostic procedures (such as lab, X-ray, CT and MRI scans

and biopsies) and specialized health programs.

Established in 1992, Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation

has raised more than $55 million to purchase medical equipment,

lifestyles Surrey’s Vaisakhi celebrations hit the streets Saturday

Parade welcomes world Maria Spitale-Leisk Black Press

A massive two-storey-tall float has spent the past month being primped by 30 volunteers in a garage at the back of the Gurdwara Sahib Dasmesh Darbar in Newton. “Everyone wants to do a piece on it (the float),” says gurdwara spokesperson Moninder Singh. “There are a lot of flowers that go on it.” The big reveal will be this Saturday, April 23 when the float winds its way through the temple grounds and out onto 128 Street during the annual Vaisakhi parade. Everyone is encouraged to follow behind the float. However, only the Guru Granth Sahib – the Sikh holy scripture – actually rides on it. The purpose of the day is to commemorate the origins of Khalsa – all baptized Sikhs. Vaisakhi is a month-long celebration of the harvest. The actual parade itself celebrates the Khalsa, which was established in 1699 to fight discrimination, promote equality and uphold the values of truth. “It is one of the most significant events of our history,” explains Singh. “The minorities within India were being oppressed at that time. The purpose of the Khalsa was to fight that oppression.” Singh estimates that approximately 150,000 people are expected to attend this year’s Vaisakhi parade in Surrey. On Saturday, people will begin arriving at the gurdwara as early as 5 a.m. for scripture and hymn readings. At 8 a.m., a prayer is said to start the event and the main float is brought out.

Then from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the parade will weave through the streets of Newton to the chanting of traditional hymns. There are 20 floats that take part in the parade, mainly sponsored by other temples and other Sikh community groups, says Singh. Thousands of men and women have been cooking for the past few weeks to prepare for the throngs of people that are expected to descend on the streets around the temple. The Gurdwara Sahib Dasmesh Darbar is located at #115 12885 85 Ave. Visit www. dasmeshdarbar.ca for more information.

SEMIAHMOO POTTERS

Fair attractions to include women’s roller derby, hot air balloon rides

Rodeo festivities to target youth

File photo

Rodeo clown from a past year’s fair.

For the second year running, the Pacificaires colourguard team from Surrey has won a world championship title. Earlier this month, the team won gold in the open class division at the Winter Guard International Championships in Dayton, Ohio. It’s a repeat of the gold medal performance the team turned in last year, in the Independent A division, a win that promoted them to the “open” class division in 2011. The sport of colour guard is predominated by teams from the U.S., where it had its beginnings in marching bands. It combines dancing, gymnastics and the use of props. This is the first time a Canadian team has won consecutive gold medals at the event. More than 35 competitors in their class from across the United States and Canada took part. The team managed to capture first place in the preliminary and semi-finals, wins that took them to the finals on April 9. The competition was especially poignant for Pacificaires team member Alanna Barker, 24, who has competed in the sport all her life. She travelled along with her parents, Florence and Alan Dyck who founded the Pacificaires. This year, she brought her own baby along, continuing the family tradition.

balloon at least two hours a day during the fair. There will also be a women’s roller derby throughout the May long weekend – back after a 30-year absence. “It’s so far out, it’s in,” Melenchuk said. The Stetson Bowl, home to five invitational rodeo performances over four days – bareback, saddle bronc, bull riding and ladies barrel racing – will host an outdoor family movie on the Sunday evening. Other plans include a display commemorating the Surrey RCMP’s 60th anniversary, along with the usual familyfriendly fare, such as the art, agri and kid zones, live music performances and Rodeo Week events.

With just a few weeks to go until the 65th annual rodeo and 122nd country fair May 20-23, preparations are hitting full stride. “We’re going to reach out more to our youth this year,” general manager Dave Melenchuk told members of the Cloverdale Rodeo and Exhibition Association at the annual general meeting April 5, where he briefly outlined plans for the 2011 event. The popular West Coast Lumberjack Show is back. As are monster truck rides for the kids. RE/MAX will be offering rides in its hot air

I’M KEVIN DONOHOE - I’D LIKE YOUR SUPPORT ON MAY 2ND I’m Kevin Donohoe, CAPS This riding of South Surrey, Cloverdale and White Rock is part of the largest and fastest growing riding in Canada; we are the epicenter of adult migration. Our boomer and Senior population is exploding. We can expect to continue to feel the pains tthat come with this growth for at least the next decade or two, such as the strain on our community Heath Organizations, Law and Order and most importantly the Living at Home / Aging in Place programs. When I’m elected I will work hard to redirect federal attention away from the international stage and to focus back on the local community issues. 1. We need to give direction through Education and increased financial support to our Community Health Groups in the investment value of providing all Seniors with automatic financial grants for “Aging in Place support.” In the big picture this will become a self financing program. I have spent a few years working and studying these solutions with various organizations and it’s clear that this will be a win win success. 2. Affordable Senior Housing and Universal Design

implementation at Local Municipal levels. We need Federal support with Local O.C.P.’s and Planning Departments to become proactive to the huge Aging population shift. 3. I am shocked at the break down of Law and Order within this Riding. There is a massive overall Drug problem and an increase in the Violence that has come along with that from the criminal Gangs. We must empower our Police forces to bring back peace and tranquility into our Community. Many other cities throughout history have achieved success. We can too; let’s get tough on these hooligans and criminals, let’s build more prisons and hire and support more Policemen. It’s a matter of Leadership – I volunteer. 4. It’s almost humorous to see how nearly all Candidates find a way to associate with the word “Conservative,” some start to sound like Episcopal Roman Protestants, whatever they are?? However I am what I am, what I’ve always been, A Conservative. I will support Mr. Harpers Conservative Government (probably in another Minority Situation, which is not all bad) and I really like and will support the approach of our Finance Minister Mr. Jim Flaherty. Feel free to call me anytime if you would like further information.

business Tuyen Nguyen makes the move from sales to cosmetic tattooing

A permanent change for Surrey ink artist Evan Seal

T

Black Press

uyen Nguyen has found a new focus in her life. While working in the commercial camera sales field for almost six years, the travel and the time away from home was taking its toll. Wanting to settle down and raise a family, she realized she needed to change careers. “How can I have kids and a family when I’m away from home so much?” She says she always had an interest in two seemingly ❝I feel I’m different using my pursuits: degree. Now, Eyebrow care I’m marketing and tattooing. “I have been myself.❞ tweezing friends Tuyen Nguyen eyebrows since I was 13,” Nguyen says. “All of a sudden, a light bulb went off.” That was five years ago and after taking a course in cosmetic tattooing in Vancouver, the owner of The Face Studio in Newton hasn’t looked back. “At first my dad wasn’t very happy,” Nguyen says. He wanted her to use her university degree in sales and marketing.

Evan Seal photo

Tuyen Nguyen applies permanent makeup to the eyelids of South Surrey patient, Susan, at her Newton store. “I feel I am using my degree. Now I’m marketing myself,” she says with a smile. Cosmetic tattooing – also known as micro pigmentation or permanent cosmetics – is a

relatively new field where pigment is injected beneath the skin using a rotary tattoo gun to add colour to a specific area. Most of the clients Nguyen sees are women over age 40 looking to

speed up the make-up application process or older women who find their hands aren’t as steady as they once were. However, she also uses paramedical tattooing to

camouflage scars, to cover up skin imperfections, or to add a three-dimensional look of hair for people dealing with hair loss due to cancer treatment. Staring up at the ceiling of the small, neatly kept studio in Nguyen’s home, Susan, a graphic artist from South Surrey, has come to the studio to have permanent eyeliner applied to her upper and lower lids. Using a tiny Q-tip-style micro fiber applicator, Nguyen applies a small amount of numbing jell to Susan’s eyelid. She is looking for a little more dramatic look to her eyes and feels she often doesn’t have time to spend applying make-up in the morning. “So often you are running out of the house in the morning with no make-up because you are in a hurry,” she says. The procedures can take anywhere from one to two hours depending on the size of the area and can cost anywhere from $300$600. But despite the “permanent” designation, these types of cosmetic applications are not like tattoos. Over time, the iron oxide based mineral pigment fades and is absorbed into the skin, meaning a touch-up could be needed every three to five years, depending on time spent in the sun.

Council postpones decision on Five Corners parking appeal Merchants at White Rock’s Five Corners will have to wait until next month to learn if their appeal for the return of across-the-board two-hour parking has swayed city council. Council voted Monday to table a decision on the matter, after it was discovered that information presented during an April 4 delegation had not been reviewed by all members of council. The point was raised by business-owner Glynis de Crewe-Le Blanc, who asked during question period if council had received a petition she submitted supporting return of the two-hour time limit. Coun. Helen

Fathers said she hadn’t. While city administrators had recommended council endorse maintaining three one-hour stalls

that were changed to the reduced limit about four months ago, de Crewe-Le Blanc questioned the fairness of an uninformed

decision. “How can it be looked at without reviewing all the evidence?” she asked.

The decision to table the matter passed, with Coun. Lynne Sinclair opposed. - Tracy Holmes

Everall project moving forward A five-unit townhouse development proposed for Everall Street in White Rock will go to a public hearing next month, following unanimous council support for the project. Council Monday gave first and second reading to a bylaw that would rezone 1434 Everall St. to allow the development, after endorsing the plan at the April 11 land use and planning meeting. According to a report from Paul Stanton, the city’s director of planning and development services, the proposal is “similar and complementary” to a recently approved and under-construction nine-unit project at 1456 Everall St. If approved, the 1434 Everall St. site would require excavation and the removal of existing mature trees. Six of 12 trees targeted for removal are sick, he noted. They will be replaced with 21 trees. The applicants have proposed to retain about 25 per cent of the trees, Stanton said. At the land use and planning meeting, Couns. Lynne Sinclair and Grant Meyer praised the proposal. Meyer described it as a development that “is going to fit in with the neighbourhood extremely well.” A public hearing is to take place May 9. - Tracy Holmes

Witnesses sought Police are still looking for witnesses to the beating of a Surrey musician this month. On April 2, at about 1:45 a.m., Michael Taylor was busing home from the Shangri-La Hotel in downtown Vancouver when he got into a verbal exchange with some teens. Several racial epithets were used by the youth toward Taylor, who is black. Taylor got off the #319 bus at 74 Avenue and Scott Road, where he was punched and kicked unconscious. Shortly after police arrived on scene, five subjects were arrested a short distance away. Taylor received serious but non-lifethreatening head injuries. Anyone with more information is asked to call 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-TIPS. -Kevin Diakiw

news Pair arrested after short chase

Charges in bait-car theft Two Surrey men are facing multiple charges – and one needs some time to heal – after police caught up with suspects in the Sunday morning theft of a bait car. The blue German import was taken from the 2400-block of 156 Street around 1:30 a.m. April 17. According to police, a man entered the car, started it and then picked up a male passenger. When the suspects spotted police setting up a perimeter, they fled toward King George Bou-

levard and north on 152 Street, police say. The car was deactivated in the 4600-block of 152 Street, at which point the suspects fled on foot through a field. A short chase with the assistance of a police dog team resulted in the arrest of two men, one of whom has teeth marks in his leg to remind him of the experience. Steven Michael Webber, 28, is charged with taking/occupy a vehicle without consent, theft over $5,000, resisting/obstructing a peace officer, flight from peace

officer and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle in connection with the incident. He remains in custody and is due back in Surrey Provincial Court May 3. Daniel Reijo Tyrvainen, 36, is charged with “taking/occupy a vehicle without consent,” theft over $5,000 and resisting/obstructing a peace officer. Released on conditions, Tyrvainen was due back in court April 21, after Peace Arch News deadline. - Tracy Holmes

When I married my husband ten Q years ago he already owned the house we live in and it is still in his name. We had three children and he was a good provider but while he came home every night he only spent a couple of hours with me and my children, then he worked on his business papers. I became bored and angry and without my husband knowing it, I had had an an affair. I became pregnant but didn’t know whether my lover or my husband was the father. When the child was born, it was obvious the child was not my husband’s, and he got very upset and moved into a motel. Now he is demanding that I leave his house and give him custody of the children and says I am entitled to nothing because I broke our marriage vows. Is he right?

A

No. You are entitled to half the house and any other assets which have been used for a family purpose or which produced income which was used for a family purpose. If you have generally been a good mother, you are likely to retain custody of your children and he will be required to support you and his three children.

Cost of living, health care and education top-of-mind among voters RIDING PROFILE: Newton-North Delta Tracy Holmes

W

Staff Reporter

hen it comes to the May 2 federal election, Communist party candidate Sam Hammond holds no illusions of coming away with the Newton-North Delta seat in Ottawa. “I always try to be credible with the media,” Hammond laughed, when asked if he thought he might win. “It won’t be a tough race for me. I’m there to inject program into the debate and use the election to as a vehicle to put our program out.” When it comes time to vote, Hammond said the real race will be between Liberal incumbent Sukh Dhaliwal and NDP candidate Jinny Sims. Sims is “a strong candidate and an able one,” Hammond said. “I think she poses a real threat to the Liberals.” Dhaliwal has held the riding since 2006, taking it for the second time in 2008 with 36.4 per cent of the votes – 2,493 more than runner-up Conservative Sandeep Pandher. This year, Dhaliwal is one of six candidates vying to represent Newton-North Delta constituents. In addition to Sims and Hammond, his contenders are Mani Fallon (Conservative), Liz Walker (Green) and Ravi Gill (Independent). For Sims, this election is her first crack at seeking a federal – or any other level of government – seat. But the former B.C.

Teachers’ Federation president is no stranger to fighting for a cause. And, she has no doubt as to the issues that are top-of-mind for voters in the riding: “What I’m hearing more and more, it’s about families being (able to) afford to live a decent life… and be able to look after their

children and their seniors.” Factors affecting that include the harmonized sales tax and fees for postsecondary education, Sims said. “Investment in youth seems to be really huge in this community,” she said, noting health care is also a key issue for constituents

– including concerns with waitlists and a lack of services. Sims described her campaign as “issuebased,” and said she will win the riding “only if the residents in this riding believe that I can represent them in Ottawa.” “Delta-Newton citizens are looking for a voice that will actually take their concerns to Ottawa,” she said. Walker agreed. “The consistent tone seems to be, are they not hearing us?” she said. For Walker, who won 5.6 per cent of votes in 2008, the top two issues are the concentration of correctional services in the Newton area and the South Fraser Perimeter Road in North Delta. The latter needs another environmental assessment, Walker said, citing word of changes she says will lead to increased congestion and air pollution. As for concentration of services, she pointed to a lack of community consultation on a decision to locate federal parole offices in Newton. It will only add to “numerous” issues that exist as a result of the concentration of social and correctional services, she said. “To get a federal parole office in the same area, in an area where we’ve already got services for troubled youth… troubles me,” Walker said. “I’m disappointed that nobody came to contact us in this part of Newton.  see page 28

election

Economy is a key election issue  from page 27 I’m disappointed a federal representative – who apparently the parole office did contact – didn’t see fit to connect with the community here to engage us before it got to the 11th hour.” Walker pledged to be better-connected with constituents on issues should she win the riding. But, like Hammond, she is not holding her breath that she’ll actually succeed at the polls. However – unlike constituents in FleetwoodPort Kells, whose Green candidate resigned last week over a controversial Facebook comment – at least those who want to vote Green will have that opportunity, she said. “It’s pretty hard to fight the machinery that other parties have,” Walker said. “At least we have representation for the people that want to make a Green vote.” At the same time, Green candidates on the ballots build the party’s credibility, she said. In contrast, Gill – running for office for the first time – is confident he has a good shot at winning the Newton-North Delta seat. “The people… need to see the power of an independent MP,” he said. “If I say something today, I will stand by it today and I will stand by it tomorrow. I will not change my grounds or my principles.” Gill said the riding’s top issues are health care and schools. Regarding health care, Gill said more doctors and expanded facilities are needed to address waits for services. Federal assistance is also needed to address the issue of aging and overcrowded schools, Gill said. The use of portables “tends to dwindle the mind of a child,” he said. Gill said the solution is to build more schools, a move he said would also create jobs and stimulate the economy. But for that, federal assistance is needed. “I’ll do everything I can to get everything for the people, fairly,” he said. “The people are my boss. What they need, I will strive to the nail to get for them.” For Fallon, the riding’s top issues are lower taxes and a strong economy. Constituents “want to make sure they’ve got jobs and their children have jobs,” she said. “That families are able to spend their own money versus the government spending it for them.” She noted many people she has spoken with while campaigning are not pleased an election was called – it’s a feeling she can relate to. “It seems silly to go into an election when the economy should be a number-one concern,” Fallon said. “The $350 million could’ve been better-spent.” Fallon said she decided to throw her hat in the ring because she was tired of “sitting around watching what wasn’t being done enough.” She is confident her odds of winning the riding are high. “I think people want to see a fresh face,” she said. “They want their riding represented in Parliament.” While Dhaliwal said he isn’t taking his fourth run at office for granted, he believes his history in the community will serve him well. “The people see me as their neighbour first,” he said. “I’m working hard, trying to earn their trust.” Dhaliwal agreed with Gill and Sims that health care is a top issue in the riding; namely, universal access. It’s something citizens are concerned they will lose under a Conservative government, he said, noting he has seen no commitment from the Conservatives to renew a health accord that was signed by the Liberal government with the provinces in 2004. “I personally see that our first priority is to a new health accord.” Second to health is the economy, Dhaliwal said.

There is a need to invest in jobs, reduce “wasteful” spending and bring down the deficit, he said. Whatever the result may be next month, Hammond – who is current leader of the B.C. Communist Party – said the key issues are ones both media and politicians alike are ignoring; to do with foreign and domestic policy. He cited money being spent by the Conservative government on other countries’ wars, as well as the millions of dollars that have been committed to new fighter jets. With those funds “we could have post-secondary education and cure everything that’s lacking in our health care,” Hammond said. Taking back ownership and control of Canadian resources and ecology – much of which is now exclusively in foreign hands – is an important piece of the picture, he said. Solutions from his party’s perspective lie in economic and social transformation, Hammond said.

Fisherman Dave Secord cleans a handful of sockeye salmon.

Far fewer Fraser sockeye predicted Jeff Nagel Black Press

Last year’s massive run of roughly 30 million sockeye salmon that filled freezers and kept barbecues sizzling won’t likely be repeated this summer. Instead, officials at the Pacific Salmon Commission are forecasting a much lower return of between three and five million sockeye to the Fraser River for 2011. That means relatively little, if any, sockeye fishing for commercial fishermen and sports anglers, and possibly even First Nations, who get first priority subject only to conservation needs. “Expectations are much lower,” said

Mike Lapointe, the commission’s chief biologist. He predicts fishing will be heavily restricted to protect threatened stocks, particularly early running sockeye bound for Stuart Lake and late-running fish that end up in Cultus Lake. “It will be nothing in the way of what we had last year,” Lapointe said. “I think people are pretty realistic.” Last year included the huge run of sockeye that return to the Fraser’s Adams River tributary northeast of Kamloops once every four years. Some scientists think the already big run was further intensified  see page 30

Pink salmon numbers may be high count of sockeye last year remains 34.5 million, Lapointe confirms that is still expected to be revised down to around 30 million. It will still stand as the biggest in almost a century, since an estimated 39 million returned in 1913, before the Hellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gate rock slide disrupted salmon for decades.

One silver lining for 2011 is that fishery managers expect a very large number of pink salmon, which come back every two years. More than a billion pink fry came out of the Fraser and about 17.5 million of them are expected to return late this summer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s by far the largest out-migration

weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen,â&#x20AC;? Lapointe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s potential for a much larger pink salmon migration.â&#x20AC;? Pinks arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as lucrative or desired as sockeye, but Lapointe expects they will be heavily fished anyway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the pinks that are going to provide the bulk of the harvest for folks this year.â&#x20AC;?

 from page 29 because ash from an Alaskan volcano may have fallen at just the right time to fertilize ocean water and increase the food supply for juvenile sockeye from the Fraser. Lapointe doubts the volcano theory, instead believing the wide variations possible in salmon returns can account for the difference. Over the long term, about five adult Fraser sockeye tend to return for every one that spawned four years earlier. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s return was spawned by roughly 900,000 adults four years ago. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a far cry from the 4.5 million spawners in 2006 that produced 2010â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s huge run. Even so, the forecast models indicate this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s run could vary anywhere from one million to 15 million fish, with the median of around four million most probable. The next three seasons are all expected to be similar until the Adamsbolstered run spawned in 2010 returns in 2014. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The next three years in particular are coming off low runs,â&#x20AC;? Lapointe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;2007, 2008 and 2009 were very low returns with fairly low numbers of spawners.â&#x20AC;? Those dismal runs prompted the federal government to appoint the Cohen Commission, now probing the decline of Fraser River sockeye. While the official

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

After years of training – and plenty of injuries – Shawn Pallan finally has a championship belt within reach

Veteran fighter gets shot at the title Nick Greenizan

I

Sports Reporter

n the world of mixed-martial arts, Shawn Pallan finds himself in a unique position – one of both a veteran and a relative rookie. On the one hand, the South Surrey personal trainer is approaching 40 years old and has 15 years worth of fighting experience in a variety of disciplines – from boxing to jiu-jitsu to karate. But on the other, he has just one official MMA fight to his credit – a second-round TKO of Josh Mazzarole at the Boulevard Casino last February. But no matter how he’s viewed – as newbie or a grizzled pro – Pallan would like nothing more than to add one more title to his name: champion. By virtue of his win over Mazzorole, the 37-year-old is the current No. 1 contender for the B.C. welterweight championship; on June 17 in Vancouver, he’ll fight Comox Valley’s Chris Anderson for the belt. And while Pallan appreciates the uniqueness of his position, having just one official MMA win to his credit, he’s also confident that his years of training have earned him the right to be in such a position. “It’s a blessing to get this chance. I’m very lucky,” he said. “Just to step into a ring and actually fight is a feat in and of itself – so many people train and say they want to fight… but only about ❝If I get that five percent actually end championship up doing it. belt, that’s “For me, having an MMA fight was something a bucket-list thing – nobody can something I wanted to ever take do before it was too late. I’ve worked hard for 12, from me.❞ 15 years, and now I’ve Shawn Pallan got this opportunity to MMA fighter get a belt… it’s just a real treat for me.” Pallan is no stranger to martial arts and combat sports. His background is as a “stand-up fighter” – boxing and kickboxing – and through the years, he’s had something of a nomadic training pattern, having jumped from gym to gym, and style to style before finally stopping at South Surrey’s Dragon’s Den, where he trains under Stephen Lapré. “I’ve taken boxing classes, kickboxing classes, jiu-jitsu, wrestling, Kung-Fu, karate – a lot of different things. I never stayed in any of them long enough to get any good, but I dabbled in each of them long enough that I got the basics, and could take something from it,” Pallan explained, adding that the impetuousness of youth was sometimes the reason he quit some of the disciplines early. “I was a young kid who wanted to be a fighter and I was impatient – I didn’t realize that it takes patience. You have to study it, work at it – that’s what really weeds out the goons. “The guy who becomes a studier of the art is the one who is going to really be successful.” Though he’d trained hard in the past – and has been training with Lapré for nearly two years – it wasn’t until last September that Pallan started working out with an eye towards stepping into the MMA ring.

South Surrey mixed-martial arts fighter Shawn Pallan will fight for a B.C. welterweight championship in June. Above right, Pallan battles Stephen Lapré during a training session. Back then, he was 40 pounds heavier than the 170 pounds he currently fights at, and his skills were rusty after a handful of serious injuries sent him to the sidelines – most of which were suffered during previous training sessions. He severely sprained his ankle when he rolled over it on the mat – “It’s still swollen on one side,” Pallen said – and he’s also broken both his pinky and ring fingers. Add to that a broken rib and most recently a leg

injury, which set him back 12 weeks, and he’s had a lot to battle through. The leg injury was the toughest, he said. “I’m a personal trainer, and it hurt to walk when I’d go see my clients. I couldn’t run, it hurt to ride the bike for awhile. I just couldn’t do anything, and it’s a fine line between staying (mentally) strong and falling into a depression,” Pallan said. “The joke was that I quit training for so long that even the dog got fat – I couldn’t

take him for walks. “Once you get back at it, (the weight) does come off pretty quickly, but the hardest part is that you’ve gotta take your licks to get back to where you were, so it got to me, for sure.” In order to get back into shape quickly, he trained at Dragon’s Den three or four days a week, two hours per day. “The first little bit was just about conditioning, but he did still have a lot of the skills, from his previous experience,” Lapré said. “I just took what he had and tried to improve upon it, much like any coach would. You’ve got to see what he’s got and give him new skills to give him a better chance at success.” At 37, Pallan knows he won’t be able to fight forever – eventually he’d like to get into coaching – and despite the ribbing he takes for being the resident “old guy,” he’s also dead-set on making the most of his opportunity. Both him and Lapré have done their homework on Anderson, Pallan’s June opponent, and both men are confident the work will pay off in the ring. “He’s more of a ground guy, so we’ll probably be spending a bit more time on the ground, but he’s smaller, so there’s the assumption – and this isn’t me calling him out – that maybe he won’t be as strong as I am,” Pallan said. “It’s a pretty big fight for me. I get pumped up more as the day draws near. It’s the kind of thing where, the timing was just right for me. I could’ve fought (years ago), but I just needed the confidence to step up and say, ‘I want this.’ “And if I do it, if I get that championship belt, that’s something nobody can ever take from me.”

Wright to fight On the same June 17 fight card as Pallan’s bout with Chris Anderson, another Dragon’s Den member, boxer-turned-MMA fighter Josh Wright, will also vie for a provincial title belt. Wright, a South Surrey resident who has a Golden Gloves boxing title to his credit, will put his Muay Thai skills to the test in a B.C. middleweight (160 pounds) fight.

Fraser Valley champions dropped by Delta

life

PAU out of Provincial Cup A slow start kept Peace Arch United from winning its third title of the soccer season, as the men’s premier squad was knocked out of the Provincial Cup after an opening-round 2-1 loss to Delta United Saturday at South Surrey Athletic Park. Delta United plays in the Vancouver Metro Soccer League. Peace Arch, champions of the Fraser Valley Soccer League and also winners of the Pakenham Cup – for the second year in a row – fell behind 2-0 to Delta early in the contest – Phil Lensky scored both goals for the visitors – before PAU midfielder Scott Barling cut to the lead in half midway through the second half when he deposited a rebound – off a Ryan Horvath penalty kick – past the Delta keeper. The Provincial Cup finals are slated for Aldergrove on May 14. – Nick Greenizan

In the event that the available bone is inadequate, very predictable procedures are now available to rebuild the missing bone. Most denture wearers, when they first arrive for a consultation, request fixed teeth because they don’t want any movement with their teeth during function. In practice, however, a removable prosthesis may be able to provide the same degree of security with the advantage of being easier to care for. Generally, removable prosthesis will be the least cost. Teeth-in-a-day, Bar-Over-dentures, Marius Bridges, All–on-4 and the less commonly used Custom Endosteal implants are some of the terms widely advertised.

Boats ready to set sail in Semiahmoo Bay Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

While this year’s Semiahmoo Bay International Regatta will have a little less action on the shoreline at next week’s event, organizers are still expecting a flurry of action on the water. The regatta, now in its 13th year on the Peninsula, is set to sail April 30 and May 1. On-shore activities such as the kite festival – which was axed after 2009 – and beach barbecue won’t be held this time around due to sponsorship cutbacks, but that hasn’t dulled excitement, said race director Terry Willey, a member of the host International Yacht Club of B.C. “A lot of those (on-shore) events weren’t well attended in recent years anyhow, so we’ve decided to just focus on the races themselves,” he said.

File photo

Boats cruise through Semiahmoo Bay during a previous regatta. “We’re really hoping for a great race and a good turnout. If we get the weather – it hasn’t been too good for sailing yet this year – it should be great.” Last year’s regatta drew 43 boats, Willey

said, and similar numbers are expected this year. A number of sailors have already registered in one of a number of racing divisions – from the fastest multi-hull boats to the cruising division – but as in past years, sign-ups usually spike at the last minute if the forecast is favourable. The first day of the regatta features a 20-mile long race, in which boats will begin near Blaine, Wash., come back into Semiahmoo Bay and then turn out toward Boundary Bay and beyond towards the San Juan Islands. The race starts mid-morning, and boats have until 5 p.m. to finish; if the winds don’t co-operate, however, the race will be shortened to make sure everybody gets home in time. “In a race that long, you really need to average about two-and-a-half or three knots to be done by five, so it’s a challenging race,”

Four gymnasts from Surrey clubs were crowned provincial champions at last weekend’s B.C. championships at the Langley Events Centre. Hyugo Ishida and Malcolm Herbert of the Surrey Gymnastics Society (SGS) won in boys competition, Jordanne Dunbar of the Splitz Gymnastics Club is the provincial champion in the women’s P3 Novice, and Surrey resident Taylor Oakley of the Flicka club in North Vancouver topped the standings in the women’s National Open group. Four other Surrey gymnasts reached the podium for their allaround scores, and several more captured event medals. SGS was dominant in the Boys Level 4 (13-and-older) category, as Ishida won the allaround gold with first place scores on five of six events. The 13-yearold North Delta resident also added a silver medal on parallel bars. SGS teammate Aidan Wilson, 13, of Surrey took the silver medal all around. Herbert, 13, earned his provincial title in the National Youth category, becoming event champion on rings and parallel bars, adding silver medals on floor and pommel horse and a bronze on vault. Khalil Dhanji, also of SGS, won gold on floor, bronze on parallel bars and fourth on pommel horse to place third all around.

Dunbar had the top scores on floor and bars to take the all around gold in women’s P3 Novice. She was also fifth on beam. Teammate Amber Skemp shared a silver medal on beam, placing seventh all around. Oakley, 14, collected a gold medal on floor, a silver on bars and a bronze on vault. SGS members won a pair of medals in the Level 2 division. Spencer Principe, 11, medaled on all six events to place second in the 10-and-under group. He won gold on floor, added silver on pommel horse, vault and high bar, and earned the bronze on rings and parallel bars. Teammate Treyson Ceratto, 10, is the high bar provincial champion in the same age group. He also won silver medals on floor, pommel horse and parallel bars, a bronze on rings and placed fifth on vault. Gordie Kordas, 16, placed second all around in the High Performance Tyro category. The South Surrey resident won gold on pommel horse, earned silver on floor and high bar, and took home bronze medals on rings and parallel bars. In girls competition, Hiroka Takeuchi won an all around bronze in the Level 4 Open category. The 13-yearold Surrey resident won a bronze on beam and was fourth on vault. Silver medals were won by Emily Carroll, 13, on vault and Nicaela Little, 12, on beam.

Four gymnasts win B.C. titles

Willey said. On the second day, two shorter races – called windward leward races, Willey said – will be staged in the bay. Also this year, the West Marine Challenge – which set teams of U.S. and Canadian boats against each other in competition – has been altered. Rather than have teams from each country form at the Saturday morning skippers meeting – which Willey said often led to “stacked” teams – this year’s trophy will be shared between the fastest Canadian and fastest American boat. Results will be tabulated from all three races. “We just thought this was a fairer way to do it,” Willey said. Last year, the fastest boat on the water was Kim Alfred’s 18-foot catamaran USA 249, which won the overall title in Division A. For more on the regatta, visit www.iycbc.ca

Valley homes sales hit five-year high for March. Fraser Valley Real Estate Board records its best March since 2006. Home sales had a huge month in March, with sales hitting five-year highs. The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board (FVREB) recorded 1,818 property sales last month, marking its best March since 2006. Sales jumped by 16 per cent over March 2010, which saw 1,565 sales in total. March also saw a jump of 42 per cent in sales over February, when the FVREB processed 1,279 sales. Back in March of 2006, 2,072 sales were recorded. Board President Sukh Sidhu says the overall demand was strong, but it wasn’t spread across the Valley as a whole. “For example, sales of single family detached homes in White Rock/South Surrey

increased by over 150 per cent in March compared to last year, however in Abbotsford they were down by almost seven per cent,” he said. Sidhu added that the number of new properties being listed for sale jumped by 11 per cent, rising from 3,038 new listings in February to 3,376 in March this year. Real estate prices also rose in March, but that jump was not quite as dramatic. The benchmark price for detached homes in the Fraser Valley hit $519,628 last month, an increase of 0.9 per cent over the March 2010 price of $514,787. Townhome prices remained relatively flat, rising from $326,307 in 2010 to $327,328 in March of 2011.

A touch of luxury at Langley’s Castle Hill by Kerry Vital

Castle Hill is just five minutes from Fort Langley, but owners will never know it once they step onto their property. Homes at Castle Hill include large terraced backyards, with a view of either a lush green belt backing onto the Salmon River or the Lower Mainland’s beautiful mountains. The homes range from 5,500 to 7,000 square feet, with plenty of open spaces including large kitchens and great rooms. “It’s a great development,” says HomeLife Benchmark Walnut Grove real estate agent Sherman Foster. All 12 one-acre lots have been sold,

with some being purchased by builders. There are currently three homes on the market, all built by Lanstone Homes. One home is completed, with the second due to be ready in August and the third in October.

Other builders involved with the project include Wallmark Homes, Wescraft Residential Builders and Clay Construction Inc. “Every lot is a unique setting,” Foster says. “I was showing the home (recently) and there were deer walking through the yard.” Potential homebuyers have told him they love the location of the subdivision and the lots, Foster says. The open-plan layout of the homes has also been popular.

Homes at Castle Hill are close to historic Fort Langley, three local golf courses and the Fraser River, as well as numerous shops, restaurants and other services. The current home, at 5,912 square feet, includes a double garage at the front of the house, plus a second double garage at the back, perfect for a boat, project car or bike. A large unfinished basement area is continued on page 38

Martin Knowles photos

Estate homes at Castle Hill range from $1.5 million to $1.7 million. The acreage estates feature large backyards with green belt or river views, and homes ranging from 5,500 to 7,000 square feet.

included, and the yard is fully landscaped with a sprinkler system. The four-bedroom, four-bathroom home includes a studio or bonus room with a private entrance on the second floor, perfect for a home office. A private rear deck holds a natural gas fireplace and backs onto the green belt and Salmon River. The luxurious master bedroom includes a large walk-in closet and looks out over the back yard, and the formal living and dining rooms just add to the feeling of opulence. The first floor also includes a study and a nook area in the kitchen. The house includes Luxor clean face fireplaces, granite countertops throughout and a full stainless steel gourmet appliance package. Hardwood floors are included throughout, and the floor of the en-suite bathroom is heated, perfect for bare feet on a cold morning. The house is wired for sound and a central distribution audio control system, and includes a complete security and vacuum system. Outside, the brick and stucco frontage welcomes you home, past the ruins of Castle Ziegler. The castle was originally built in 1910, and was the site of many parties thrown by owner Fritz Ziegler, a former consul general of Mexico. The entire Castle Hill development will be built in a European country style design. Homes at Castle Hill range from $1.5 to $1.7 million. For more information, visit www. castlehillestates.com.

The City of Surrey is planning some changes at the intersection of 17 Avenue and 146 Street. Presently, traffic on 17 Avenue must stop for traffic on 146 Street. Traffic analysis has shown that the volume of traffic on 17 Avenue significantly exceeds the traffic volume on 146 Street. It is safer for those streets with lower volumes to be required to stop. For that reason, the stopping direction will be reversed so that traffic on 146 Street will be required to stop. To maintain safety and minimize driver confusion, the changeover will be undertaken in 3 phases: Phase 1

Luxurious Open Greatroom Floorplan 2 Master Bedrooms, Beautiful Finishing & Detail throughout, Gourmet Kitchen, Spacious Decks, and Outdoor Entertaining

Finishing Carpenters own home. Beautiful Birch Hardwood and Crown Mouldings throughout, Spectacular Country Kitchen. 4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Large South Facing Backyard. Designer Colours Throughout.

Additional signage and pavement markings will be installed before and during the changeover. This analysis was done as part of a pilot project for cycling Neighbourhood Routes, which are routes through local roads connecting neighbourhoods through Surrey. The pilot project connects the Semiahmoo area to Ocean Park. 17 Avenue at 146 Street is part of this east-west route, which will be facilitated by the inversion of the stopping direction as well. Please use extra care at this intersection as people get used to the changes and new operation. For more information, please contact the City at 604-591-4853 or cycling@surrey.ca.

OBITUARIES

BROWN, Annie Elizabeth “Beth” (nee Owens), October 3, 1918 – April 7, 2011 Beth Brown, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend, passed away on April 7, 2011 at the Cranbrook General Hospital in her 93th year. Beth or “Oma” will be greatly missed by all who have known her. She was a vibrant light of enthusiasm, optimism and wisdom. Always informed and interested, there wasn’t very much she let get by her and she also spent a good deal of time getting to know you and what was on your mind. A conversation with Beth was lively and usually included a laugh together. Beth had a passion for travel; one of her last trips at age 89 was to Canada’s North so she could put her toe into the only ocean she had not experienced. Born in Kamloops BC as the only daughter to Annie and Arthur Owens, she grew up on the West Coast with her brothers. She would later meet her husband, Lee and together spend their time moving up and down the Pacific Coast until they settled in White Rock as their community of choice. Beth spent her last years in Cranbrook, making new friends and enjoying her family. Beth is survived by her two daughters Gail (Wayne) and Denise (Brian) and four grandchildren Neil (Linda), Alex, Samantha (Mark) and Amanda. She is predeceased by her husband Lee, and brothers, Denis, Randy, John and Don. The family would like to extend heartfelt thanks to Dr.Peiterse and the staff at both the Cranbrook General Hospital and Joseph Creek Village for their wonderful care and kind hearts. At Beth’s request, there will not be a funeral service. We ask you to keep her fondly in your memory. Those wishing to honour Beth’s memory may do so by making a gift to either the White Rock Seniors Centre or the Cranbrook Seniors Centre. Condolences to the family can be offered by writing to groo.brown@gmail.com. Beth, you will always be with us. If love could heal, you would live forever. We will remember you in our hearts and with the actions we take every day.

In his final hours Vern was surrounded by the loving arms of his wife of 57 years, Lorraine, his two daughters Brenda & Cathy and a close family friend Doreen Marks of Kelowna. Vern went to his home in Heaven after a courageous, lengthy battle with Alzheimer’s on Friday April 15 at 1:45PM. Vern leaves to mourn his loving wife Lorraine, one son Brian, two daughters Brenda Higgs (John) and Cathy Thompson (Stewart) and five precious grandchildren Jessica, Crystal, Nicholas, Ryan and Rachel, whom he adored. Also survived by 3 brothers, Ira, Jack, Lyle and their families. Special thanks to Dr. Joshi and the Angels who worked on Weatherby One. Their love and compassion for “Papa” was greatly appreciated. Visitation will take place on Saturday April 23, 2011 at 1pm, at Valley View Funeral Home, 14660 72 Ave Surrey, BC. Service to follow at 2pm. If friends and family desire, donations may be made to Weatherby One, 15521 Russell Ave. White Rock, BC, V4B 2R4. LAMB, Dorothy Eileen October 2, 1918? April 1, 2011 Dorothy was born in New Westminster, BC. She graduated from the nursing program at Royal Columbian Hospital in 1945. Dorothy worked in hospitals in Pender Harbour, Kelowna, Atikokan Ontario, and at Seniors King George Private Hospital and Tsawassen Kinsman Seniors Residence. She was predeceased by her mother Jessie F. MacNess and her father Harvey O. Lamb. She is survived by her sister, Irma Hicks, 4 nephews, one niece, 3 great nieces and 2 great nephews. In lieu of flowers a donation to a charity of your choice would be appreciated A celebration of her life will be held at the Church of the Holy Trinity, 15115 Roper Ave., White Rock on April 29th at 2:00 pm.
