White Rock resident behind bars after ‘extraordinary’ VPD investigation

Fired officer charged with trafficking Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Peter Hodson

A Vancouver police constable is facing charges this week in connection with “disturbing and disgraceful” activities uncovered over the past two months. “I have something to share with you today that I know you will find as shocking and disturbing as I do,” Chief Const. Jim Chu said Wednesday in announc-

ing charges against White Rock resident Peter Hodson. “Just a few hours ago, we arrested one of our own.” Hodson, 31, was arrested and charged – and fired – that morning. Describing the alleged offences as those of “a single rogue officer,” Chu said investigators “observed behaviour that suggested Hodson was trafficking street-level amounts of marijuana both

on- and off-duty.” Hodson has been charged with trafficking marijuana and two counts of breach of trust; one for selling drugs and the other for illegal use of a police database. Hodson was also charged with break-and-enter with the intent to commit extortion, in connection with street-level drug-trafficking allegations. In Vancouver Provincial Court Thurs-

day, Hodson was remanded. He is due back in court Monday. Chu said an “extraordinary investigation” into Hodson’s activities began two months ago – 18 months after Hodson was charged with impaired driving, a matter that is still before the courts. “We knew we had a case that would alarm the department and the pub see page 4

In the footsteps of their forefathers Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Elgin Park Secondary student Lauren Friesen remembers the stories her grandfather shared with her of his role in the Second World War. She knows Wilfrid Hall was on one of the first ships of Canadians to land at Juno Beach. “I think he was a commander,” the Grade 11 student said. “He had to swim through with his rifle in his teeth. A lot of his friends were lost.” Friesen was always interested in hearing the stories. Next week, she and 23 EPS peers will

gain new perspective on the significance of the roles Canadians played in the First and Second World Wars, during a 12-day European tour commemorating the 65th anniversary of Victory in Europe Day and Canada’s liberation of the Netherlands. Their tour – one of several organized by EF Education Tours for students across Canada – includes visits to Juno Beach and Vimy Ridge, two sites where Canadian involvement was instrumental to victory.

pating in ceremonies will bring the history the students have been studying in class to life. “It’s like a second level to all the stories,” Friesen said. Thousands of Canadian students are expected to participate in the overseas ceremonies. Bob Brady, vice-president of the B.C. & Yukon Command of the Royal Canadian Legion, told Friesen and fellow students Romy Sank, Chloe White and Holly Pontifex Monday the trip will be “a life-changing experience” for them.  see page 4

This Month’s Special:

White Rock council is now mulling information on the proposal to contract out the city’s fire service to Surrey, Peace Arch News has learned. A special in-camera meeting of council was set for Thursday at 6 p.m. (after Peace Arch News’ deadline), in which reports on the existing fire service, and potential impacts of amalgamation of service to the city, including safety aspects, were due to be received. The meeting was closed to the public, under the Community Charter provision that allows the city to keep private “negotiations and related discussions respecting the proposed provision of a municipal service that are at their preliminary stages and that, in the view of the council, could reasonably be expected to harm the interests of the municipality if they were held in public.” The contentious proposal to have Surrey Fire assume responsibility for services to the city was raised last year, as a result of council’s ongoing core-services review. At a public meeting Jan. 10, IAFF Local 2407 president Scott Booth called on council to “act like a city and maintain its essential services,” arguing that contracting out would be “a huge lever for the City of Surrey to completely obtain the City of White Rock.” No decision was expected to be made at the meeting. – Alex Browne

organizer. Dosanjh was the first Indo-Canadian to ever become a premier of any province in Canada. This was a matter of great pride among virtually all Sikhs at the time. When he paid a visit to India as B.C. premier, it was hailed by all Canadians with connections to India backgrounds as a momentous step. Hayer has been a Surrey MLA for the past nine years, and is a man of great personal character. He was deeply involved in the broader community before his election, and despite the fact that his father was killed by assassins in 1998, in a crime that remains unsolved, he continues to do his job with considerable distinction. In my conversations with him over the years, I have never detected any bitterness towards those within the Sikh community who take different stances from his moderate views. I hope that the Dasmesh Darbar Society can work out its considerable differences with the City of Surrey and other political leaders whom these remarks have offended. I also hope it can realize the responsibility it bears to all Sikhs in the community, to put its best foot forward. The Vaisakhi parade is an important part of Surrey’s present-day fabric, and it needs to continue as a non-political, non-divisive event. Frank Bucholtz writes Fridays for the Peace Arch News.

news Small-businesses minister defends HST in White Rock visit

‘To be candid, we need the dough’ Alex Browne Boaz Joseph photo

A float used in the Surrey Vaisakhi parade has drawn political fire.

Photos not of terrorists

City, RCMP cleared float Kevin Diakiw Black Press

A popular parade in Newton Saturday did not feature images of people linked to terrorism, contrary to several reports. Various media have raised the alarm about images on a float during the Vaisakhi parade, hosted by the Gurdwara Sahib Dasmesh Darbar Sikh temple. Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts said she left the parade when she saw the float, telling Black Press it was not supposed to be there. However, it has been learned, the city’s festival committee and RCMP approved the float prior to the parade. Couns. Barinder Rasode and Tom Gill both confirmed the float had been sanctioned and given approval. Gill said he spoke with Surrey RCMP Chief Supt. Fraser MacRae Monday regarding the contentious float and was assured it was cleared by Mounties just before the event. The RCMP referred all calls to the city, and Watts did not return phone calls by press deadline. One of the parade organizers, Perry Dulai, said he examined the float before, then after, the parade, to ensure it hadn’t been tampered with during the event. In addition to the float uproar, Watts said this week she was also angered about comments made before the parade. A parade organizer said on radio last Friday that two politicians were expressly not invited and would be responsible for their own security if they showed up. The targets of the remarks, Surrey-Tynehead MLA Dave Hayer, whose father was assassinated at his Surrey home in 1998, and Vancouver-South MP Ujjal Dosanjh, who was beaten by a Sikh militant in 1985, filed complaints with the RCMP. Hayer and Dosanjh are known for their opposition to the so-called Khalistan campaign for a separate Sikh state, something that is passionately supported by many at the Dasmesh Darbar temple, which has the permit from the city to run the annual parade. Because of the comments, Premier Gordon Campbell and his cabinet boycotted the Surrey event. Federal Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff also called for an apology. Earlier in the week, Watts vowed a wholesale change of the annual Vaisakhi parade after this year’s celebration erupted in controversy. In an interview on RED FM Wednesday, Watts said she is upset. “It puts a black mark on the city, a black mark on the community and a black mark on the event, and that’s what I’m upset about,” Watts said.

Staff Reporter

The HST is nothing to fear. That was the message from B.C.’s small-businesses minister Iain Black, who visited with White Rock businesses last week. In a Friday morning meeting at the Ocean Promenade Hotel – co-organized by the White Rock South Surrey Chamber of Commerce, Surrey-Panorama MLA Stephanie Cadieux and Mayor Catherine Ferguson – Black fielded informal questions from business owners. Many, predictably, had to do with the introduction of the harmonized sales tax, which the provincial Liberals are scheduled to implement July 1, with the inducement of a $1.6 billion offer from the federal government. One week after former premier Bill Vander Zalm attracted hundreds at a White Rock rally against the HST, Black told about 30 local business people there are three main reasons for introducing the HST now, including the ability to exercise more control than other jurisdictions over the flexibility with which it is applied and the fact that Ontario, B.C.’s biggest business trading partner, has already introduced it.

The third reason is the $1.6 billion, he around the world is that it takes about two years.

Trooper visits Crescent Park students who raised funds, before curling up (below) between owner Brad Hayward and student Catherine Taylor.

It’s a (better) dog’s life, thanks to children Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

The first time eight-year-old Catherine Taylor saw Trooper on the news, the dog was extremely emaciated, weighing just 24 pounds – a third the weight of an average golden retriever. Images of the skeletal puppy appeared in the media after he was turned into the SPCA Maple Ridge branch in February, resulting in public outrage over his neglect, as well as a wave of adoption offers. Taylor, a Crescent Park Elementary student, was also touched. She pledged half of her birthday money to Trooper’s care, and – along with seven-year-old classmate Mackenzie Mager – made a poster and appealed to fellow students for donations. The school contributed half of its book sale proceeds, raising a total of $243.30 for the Maple Ridge shelter. Taylor’s Grade 2 class was buzzing

with excitement Wednesday as they awaited to present the money to none other than Trooper himself. The 14-month-old retriever was accompanied by adoptive owner Brad Hayward of Maple Ridge. The energetic pup roamed and sniffed around the classroom as the students swarmed around him for a chance to pat his short, scruffy coat. Hayward explained how Trooper was kept in a cage from a young age, and, because he was never bathed, his fur had to be cut off once in care. “When he came to the SPCA, was he scared?” one boy asked. “I think he was, but he was treated real well there,” Hayward said. “He’s a very lucky dog and we’re lucky to have him.” Hayward was at the SPCA to adopt two cats when he saw Trooper, who was just two days from death when dropped off 72 hours earlier.

Hayward continued to visit every other day, and began fostering the dog once he regained enough health. For three weeks, he fed Trooper chicken and rice six times a day. The retreiver is now 55 pounds – having gained 31 pounds in six weeks – and was officially adopted by Hayward and his family two weeks ago. He told the children Trooper’s former owner is now facing charges. The call for charges was made loudly by Trooper’s supporters, who had an online petition and Facebook page. The dog’s popularity means his visit to Crescent Park Elementary was just one of numerous engagements on his busy schedule; he is also slated to shoot an SPCA commercial. But the visit was priceless for Taylor, who was finally able to meet Trooper in person. “It’s really good,” she said. “It’s like he’s the best dog ever.”

editorial

Balancing act between safety and savings hite Rock’s fire service has been called a political hot potato, and with council now receiving staff reports on it – including the contentious proposal to contract out firefighting to Surrey – there’s no sign it will cool down any time soon. It’s a highly emotional issue for White Rock firefighters and their supporters. City firefighters have been willing to put their lives on the line for the city for more than 50 years, since White Rock’s Fire Department negotiated its independence from Surrey in 1958 in the wake of the incorporation of the city a year earlier. The proud record of local firefighting goes back even further, to when the formation of White Rock’s first volunteer fire brigade in 1933 helped reduce the community’s reliance on the longstanding goodwill of Blaine’s fire department. In response to the contracting-out proposal, many supporters have already come forward with anecdotes that underline their personal gratitude to the city department. No one can take this record of service away from White Rock firefighters, and noone should suggest their current commitment is not valued. But by the same token, council members elected to serve the taxpayers of this city have a right to conduct core-service reviews. In an ever-evolving landscape of social and economic realities, if there can be better, more appropriate and more cost-effective ways of doing things, then council and staff have an obligation to investigate them. All emotionalism aside, it is prudent, on behalf of taxpayers, to review all services and the means and costs of their delivery – particularly as costs rise and needs change. The citizens of White Rock deserve no less. But council has an obligation – particularly when the issue involves public safety – not to take such investigations, and any ensuing decisions, lightly. Critics of the contracting-out proposal charge it will slow response times, and significantly reduce the allocation of firefighters and equipment resources to the city. No matter how attractive any new strategy appears fiscally, the safety and security of White Rock’s citizens must in no way be compromised. All of us have learned through experience that a plan that looks good on paper doesn’t necessarily hold up in the heat of a real-life emergency. And council must be very sure, while safeguarding the public purse, that it is giving sufficient value to safeguarding lives.

Price to pay for anonymity

Better way to move forward

Editor: I was talking to a colleague of mine this morning. He was complaining that our hospitals have four hours of wait time because he had to wait that long in emergency. I said this is what we deserve. I said if we, the public, don’t get involved in the political process, don’t get organized, funding for the hospitals, schools, senior care, social housing, essential services will keep cutting. B.C has lowest minimum wage, highest cost of living in Canada. No wonder we have highest child poverty in Canada. In the meantime, our MLAs – in my case, Gordon Hogg – will keep giving tax breaks to large corporations and banks. For example, in the March 2010 budget, this government abolished capital tax to large corporations. This was bringing $100 million every year to B.C., gone forever for a onetime payment of $48 million. It all makes sense. That is only one example. By cutting existing necessary social programs, they are finding money to give large corporations more tax breaks. So, when are we going to get organized and say enough is enough for a fair, just and compassionate society? The current fight against the HST is the only silver lining, and people are ready to join. The more people together, the better off we are in our future. This editor of this newspaper has raised the same question before. How long are we going to raise our voice being anonymous? This is the time to come out fearlessly for ourselves. Arun Chatterjee, White Rock

Editor: I believe the City of White Rock is slowly losing control of its destiny. There are structural problems with commercial/industrial taxation revenues, ongoing loss of commercial tenants while building appearances deteriorate and lessthan-progressive community planning into the future. These major trends, almost cancer-like, are slowly taking White Rock past the point of no return. Regarding property tax revenues – of which most municipalities rely on most heavily – there is simply not enough commercial/industrial property relative to residential, thereby placing undue burden on White Rock residential taxpayers. Recent studies by the City of Surrey confirm the necessity to attract industrial and commercial growth, preferred sources of revenue because they bring in three times the taxes as residential, while drawing on far fewer resources – such as libraries, community centres, garbage hauling and parks. Regarding commercial activity and appearance, and considering only the upper-bench areas south of 16 Avenue, White Rock has been losing progressive commercial tenants for years. The liquor store and, soon, Shoppers Drug Mart are more recent examples. Sadly, the appearance of the remaining commercial premises is generally that of worn-out, old-

fashioned buildings. I know this sounds harsh; please excuse me. It’s happening, and it’s going to keep happening. There is nothing on the horizon to stop this ongoing decay. Regarding community planning, White Rock is bucking North American trends, and is starting to look like the sad cousin of its neighbour to the north. City of Surrey is moving towards the creation of a major town centre in Whalley, next to the awardwinning Central City project, and is visioning on new mini-town-centres for Guildford, Fleetwood, Newton, Cloverdale, and Semiahmoo. It seems so strange that south of 16 Avenue, businesses continue to decay visually and economically, and community planning is cut back to more restrictive height and density, while areas north of 16th have a developing and progressive community plan and exciting future. From a satellite, it may eventually look like the difference between Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Please excuse me for sounding so negative. However, my prediction is White Rock will simply run itself into the ground and be finally amalgamated by the City of Surrey. By the time that happens, and that will be a few agonizing years, it may be too late to correct the imbalances that have already occurred. Is it possibly time to consider a new co-operative model to allow all on the Peninsula to grow together, with one South Surrey-White Rock community plan, with vision, co-operation, collaboration, greater business and municipality viability, and one heart and soul? Craig E. Harrold, Surrey

Q Five years ago, we decided to relocate to B.C. and started our search in Vancouver, however, much to our delight, someone decided to show us White Rock. We had always wanted to live near water and in a walkable, selfcontained community. We made the move and invested in real estate and started our own businesses. Instead of all the turmoil, it is time for us to commit together to helping our city move forward. Instead of lamenting over businesses that are moving to Surrey, let us support White Rock businesses that continue to make the investment to be part of our community. Let us support the businesses south of 16 Avenue, enabling them to stay, so that we can maintain a healthy, growing community. Business owners, let us support the Business Improvement Association and Chamber of Commerce. Let us help and appreciate volunteers that tirelessly help Tour De White Rock, the Spirit of the Sea Festival, Peace Arch Hospital, Red Cross, Semiahmoo House, etc. Council members, support our mayor with a clear vision to move forward and not backwards. We can no longer live in the past and must evolve. We must invest our time, energy and creative thinking to be able to continue living in a truly distinct community. Let us become cheerleaders for White Rock and put our energy into positively making a contribution and show that… “we believe.” Susan Leno, White Rock

The whole body is at risk Editor: Re: Open your eyes and watch for motorcycles, April 9. I am prompted to respond to columnist Jason Roessle’s article about motorcycles. Every spring there are driving campaigns to watch for motorcycles. It is my habit to give extra attention when I am driving my car and I hear a motorcycle. Too often, the motorcycle is vastly exceeding the speed limit. What I do is silently say a prayer for him; it is always a male. When our son was killed on his motorcycle, his head and face were intact. His rib cage was so smashed, nothing would be done for him. For those who won’t be cautious, like skilled drivers, perhaps there should be mandatory chest and limb protection devices. It is the whole body that is at risk – not just the head.

Attempts to protect trees by using punishments alone will have the opposite effect, says letter-writer Dale Heino.

Tree rules discourage ownership e-mail: Editor: The legendary road to Hades supposedly is paved with good intentions. One might bear this in mind while reviewing White Rock’s draft Tree Management Bylaw. It follows a familiar pattern: • Be prepared to whack property owners who were foolish enough to plant trees and/or purchase a property with trees, should any of them dare contemplate the removal of a single specimen, and; • Give a well-deserved pat on the back to those owners of properties upon which tree density approximates that of the Antarctic ice shelf. Also, note in the appendix the very tiny number of private properties upon which there are “significant stands of mature trees.” Given the age of the area, one might conclude the average property owner does not want large trees, or is at least ambivalent toward them. Then, ask yourself: Under this bylaw, would trees be considered an asset or a liability in the event the property owner has to sell?

Does this bylaw encourage the preservation or the removal of a tree before it reaches the size at which the bylaw comes into effect? Does this bylaw encourage or discourage the planting of trees for the enjoyment of future generations? Why not encourage the preservation of existing trees, as well as the planting of new trees, by offering a break in property taxes for trees of a certain size? This would reward those who are contributing to the city’s natural beauty, and would be subsidized by those who are not. This seems an inherently fair approach. Goal congruence of the property owners and city – and presumably its citizens – suggests it would also be effective. I am not under the illusion White Rock or any other municipality with a similar bylaw will put away the stick, but it would be nice if they offered a carrot as well. And for the record, I no longer own property in White Rock. Dale Heino, Surrey

Traffic chaos after crash A two-car crash on Highway 99 Wednesday afternoon sent two people to hospital and stifled traffic on several routes. Buses were re-routed and traffic remained backed up for more than three hours as a result of the crash, which occurred just south of the Highway 91 overpass shortly after 2 p.m. According to police, the crash occurred when a vehicle southbound on Highway 99 crossed the centre median and struck a northbound

Program aims to fill void Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

A team of outreach workers is now available to local seniors, half a year after a core-funding cut to White Rock/Surrey Come Share Society’s Senior Support Services resulted in the discontinuation of the original program. The $161,820-cutback made by Fraser Health last September left a significant gap in services for Peninsula seniors requiring information on subsidized housing, pensions, grocery delivery, filling out forms and other inquiries, according to WRSCSS executive director Sue McIntosh. To help fill that void, the society created a new information and referral program. Senior Service Connectors currently has 10 volunteers who have undergone five weeks of training and eight weeks of mentoring to learn about the health care system, federal and provincial programs, health care options,

housing and community services. The volunteers are stationed at various sites in the community – the majority will offer their services out of the agencies they work for – starting with Kent Street Activity Centre, Centennial Arena, White Rock Community Centre, Sunrise Pavilion, Newton Seniors Centre and Fleetwood Community Centre. Seniors or their caregivers can call 604-531-9400 and set up an

supports girls born and living in the dump by giving them a chance at a healthy future. It’s something they could never have in La Chureca, where girls as young as nine are prostituted in exchange for first pick of the garbage, Peters said. In Villa Esperanza, where the girls are free to return to their families at anytime, they are provided food, housing, education and more. At least 16 girls have benefited so far; another eight are expected to be rescued in the next two months, Shields said. He described his experience in Nicaragua as both heart-breaking and life-changing. “It made me so much more grateful for what I have and the life we have here,” he said. “As a society, we forget how good we have it.” The team paid their own expenses and also raised funds

that were used to purchase supplies and pay wages of the local workers who helped with the tasks. Some of the funds will also cover the funeral expenses of a mother who is dying of AIDS. Shields said while it was heartwrenching to see children living in such poverty, he was touched by the joy for life he saw in those same children. He recalled visiting the family of one young boy who lives in the dump. “I walked into his house, which is the size of the garden shed I used to own. It just blew me away that this family was living in this condition of squalor and yet, they were smiling,” he said, adding he still chokes up at the memory. “I don’t want to forget how I felt,” Shields said. “I want to carry some of those emotions with me for the rest of my life.”

lifestyles Benefit show will raise money for ALS Society

A concert with a cause A concert celebrating a popular music teacher’s “outstanding contribution” to Laronde Elementary takes place at the South Surrey school Tuesday night. Proceeds from the April 27 event will benefit the ALS Society of B.C. Teacher Amanda Myring said her friend and colleague, Alison Bennett – who was diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) in February 2009 – hopes the funds raised will help in researching the incurable neuromuscular disease, as well as ease the ALS journey for other patients. “She just thinks if we can do anything to ease your daily life, because your life is so affected by this...” Myring said. Bennett, 47, taught at Laronde from 2004 until last November, when the effects of her ALS made it physically impossible to continue – a fact principal Peggy Lee describes as “a tremendous loss to the school community.” Tuesday’s concert, which Bennett helped script, will feature a number of her former students, including 2008 Canadian Folk Music Award nominee Kierah Raymond. The concert begins at 7 p.m. Tickets, $25, are available at the Contributed photo school, 604-536-1626. Laronde Elementary teachers Amanda Myring, left, and Alison -Tracy Holmes Bennett are holding a concert to raise money for the ALS Society.

Optometrists are raising the alarm following news the provincial government is proposing deregulating prescriptions for glasses and contact lenses. If the changes go ahead – they are proposed to come into force May 1 – B.C. will have the lowest standard of eye care in North America, said Michelle Elliott, a Peninsula optometrist. “It will be the same as Third World countries where anyone can sell glasses or contacts without training, without a prescription, without liability and with no protection for the people of B.C.,” Elliott writes in an email to the Peace Arch News. The Ministry of Health Services announced amendments to the Optician Regulation and Optometrist Regulation on March 19. The amendments – touted to modernize the way people get

from the hospital. As I wrote last year, the Glades Tour is a quiet walk in one of the most beautiful gardens of South Surrey. Since 1997, the Glades, comprising five acres at 561 172 St., has only opened its doors to the public on Mother’s Day. Peaceful calming gardens, a reflecting pond, amazing azaleas and 30-foot-tall rhododendrons, not to mention the vast variety of trees, and the occasional glimpse of an owl or a squirrel, all sights and sounds are yours for a $6 entrance fee. Glades’ residents Jim and Elfriede DeWolf are excited about the new additions to the Glades, including a Zen garden and the

new bamboo grove, where there are 85 plants, some of which are 35 feet tall. You will enjoy a sense of peace as you stroll along the multitude of paths, as you enjoy the ponds and artistic settings. You will relax on a quiet bench, and capture the look and sounds to store in your memory bank to escape from some future hectic day. Moms of all ages will enjoy this outing, especially if it is a family outing in lieu of a golf game. (Hint to the dads… Father’s Day is not until June, and you, too, will enjoy these gardens). From 1997 to 2009, the auxiliary has had more than 10,000 people visit the DeWolf ’s property,

raising more than $122,000. We thank Jim and Elfriede Dewolf for allowing us and our guests to explore their property on Mother’s Day. We hope to see you there May 9, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Pause to say thanks to Jim and Elfriede for their enormous contribution to Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary, to the residents of our area, and for their donation of their property to the City of Surrey, to the benefit of babies and future babies delivered at Peace Arch Hospital.

Work by the City of Surrey is underway to redevelop the Wickson property, at the end of McBride Avenue in Crescent Beach, as excavator Tim Hassell works on a pathway that will lead into the park, near Blackie Spit.

Hard work of potters goes on sale The work of local pottery enthusiasts will be up for grabs this weekend as the Semiahmoo Potters Society hosts its semiannual sale. A variety of items from small trinkets to large, elaborate pieces will be on sale at Ocean Park Community Hall, 1557 128 St.

The group, which registered as a non-profit society in 2006, holds workshops for its members throughout the year in an effort to develop and share potting skills and techniques. The society consists of 30 members who meet monthly and take part in various arts events

throughout the community. This weekend’s sale kicks off today (Friday) from 3 to 9 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information about the Semiahmoo Potters Society or their semi-annual sale, contact semiahmoopotters@gmail.com

Care, Compassion and Community is what White Rock

Hospice Society is all about. We are so fortunate to have over 180 Hospice Volunteers who generously give their time, talents, and heart in helping those in our community who are at a most vulnerable time in their lives.

Last year alone, our Volunteers gave 30,966 hours of their time to help support our programs. We are so lucky as a community to have so many truly caring people! April is Volunteer Appreciation Month and, from the Board of Directors and Staff of White Rock Hospice Society, we would like to thank all our Volunteers for a job well done. Without you, we would have no community.

Garbage hearings assailed Jeff Nagel Black Press

Nine public meetings now scheduled across the Lower Mainland will give residents a chance to air their views on Metro Vancouver’s controversial solid waste and resource management plan, which would allow construction of a new garbage incinerator. The public meetings start Monday, May 3 in Hope and wrap up June 16 in Chilliwack, with the final deadline for public comment on the plan set for July 14. But critics are already saying the format seems calculated to limit scientific debate and suppress both public questioning of Metro Vancouver’s experts and the airing of alternate views. The meetings start with onehour open house sessions where the public can talk to Metro staff and politicians, followed by three hours for input and then 30 minutes for questions and answers.

Metro waste management committee chair Greg Moore said Metro’s presenters will stick to a written script to ensure a consistent message and won’t respond during the main input portion to questions from the public. “We want to do [questions] in an open house style, which is a little bit more informal and you can have a lot of opportunity to have some good quality one-onone dialogue,” he said. “To us it seems manipulative,” responded Fraser Valley Regional District board chair Patricia Ross. “We feel that we have been very disrespected and misrepresented.” She said it doesn’t make sense to her to hold questions and answers until the end of the meetings and then to allow just 30 minutes. She wants the FVRD to be allowed to present its own information at the public meetings to counter what she expects will be

Metro’s “aggressive pro-incineration” bias. Metro staff gave the FVRD no advance notice of the announcement of the dates, she added. Moore said the formal input sessions are organized to be in line with the rules in the Community Charter that govern public hearings held by municipalities. He said Metro is still working with Ross to schedule another public meeting in the Valley featuring the boards of both regional districts where the FVRD will control part of the agenda to present its own information and experts. The Newlands Golf and Country Club in Langley will host a meeting May 5, from 6 to 10:30 p.m. Metro’s plan, background documents and details can be found at www.metrovancouver.org/services/solidwaste/planning/Pages/ default.aspx. – with files from Kevin Mills Prime Real Estate for Savvy Investors

lifestyles the resource started last winter; online participation has been available to the public since December. The existing Water Act was established in 1909 and is B.C.’s primary water management legislation. According to the ministry, the current consultation is aimed at modernizing the Act while making water laws easier to understand, administer and enforce. To make a submission visit livingwatersmart. ca/water-act/ or visit the blog at blog.gov. bc.ca/livingwatersmart/ The deadline to make submissions is April 30.

Nature’s helpers Volunteers are needed to help with continued efforts to restore Sunnyside Acres Urban Forest to its natural state. Planting of native trees and shrubs, along with the removal of invasive plants and litter, is to take place Saturday, April 24, rain or shine. Those interested in helping should meet at 18A Avenue and 146 Street at 10 a.m. The planting is one of several free Peninsula events highlighted in Surrey’s 13th Environmental Extravaganza, which kicked off on Earth Day (April 17) and ends on World Ocean Day (June 6). Other local events on April 24 include an invasive plant removal and cleanup near the mouth of the Little Campbell River (9 a.m. to noon; meet at the Semiahmoo Park baseball field) and an open house and plant sale at Darts Hill Garden (10 a.m. to 4 p.m., 16 Avenue and 170 Street).

Fraser bursaries Adults living with mental illness and considering a higher education are the focus of bursaries offered by the Canadian Mental Health Association. Awards of up to $700 are being offered through CMHA’s Lorne Fraser Educational Fund, to help cover the successful applicants’ costs of tuition and textbooks or materials. Fraser, who is bipolar, started the fund in 1982, in recognition of the fact many students with mental illness have their schooling interrupted by an episode of depression, anxiety or other mental health issues. Since 1982, the fund has helped more than 140 adults with mental illness pursue their education. In addition to the bursary program, a new scholarship – the Lorne Fraser Scholarship for Mental Health Promotion – will award $2,000 to a student with mental illness who is pursuing a career in the mental health field. Applicants for both programs must be at least 19 years old, living in B.C., receiving therapeutic support for a mental disorder and not receiving other financial support. The deadline to apply is May 1. For more information, call 1-800555-8222.

lifestyles Former White Rock resident returns to B.C. after California ranch burned down

Instructor rekindles passion lost in wildfire Steven Heywood

O

Black Press

ut of the ashes of her former ranch and riding school near San Diego, Karen Cipranic has returned to Canada to rebuild her dream. Raised in White Rock, Cipranic now lives in Oceanside on Vancouver Island, and has opened her Bluebird Riding School in Nanoose Bay. In doing so, she has not only brought her own dreams back to life, but breathed that same vitality into an old horse barn next to the Rocking Horse Pub. “I just sort of stumbled across the barn,” she said. “It was being used for storage and hadn’t been used as a barn for some 10 years.” With 31 horses in tow from her California ranch that was burned out in that state’s rash of wildfires, Cipranic asked the owner if they would rent out the barn for her riding school. They agreed, and she moved in and already the community has responded to the effort. The Bluebird Riding School is attracting its share of students — mostly younger riders who are either just getting started among horses or who have a little experience and want to learn more. Of course, Cipranic offers lessons to a wide variety of

In that time, she has also made a home for rescued horses, animals that were at one time either sick or abandoned. Of the 31 she has, Cipranic said two are not rescues. The rest come from all over the

U.S. Today, she said she’s not taking in any more rescued or older horses, but is focusing on her school. Right off the bat, students are tasked with cleaning stalls and helping out around the barn.

“I love to share my knowledge with young riders,” said Cipranic, adding she doesn’t train riders to enter shows and the like, and maintains a focus on the aspects of good riding. Her enthusiasm for the barn itself also rubs off on her students.

Young Annika Van Steen is the perfect example. She arrived for her class during a Black Press interview and cheerfully went for a pink rake, green wheelbarrow and headed to a stall. Not a word of complaint as she made sure to pick up horse leavings, under the watchful eye of the resident barn cat. The discipline and organization needed to run the barn is something Cipranic teaches as part of her lesson plans. “It helps make them responsible for the horse and how important it is to help keep the stalls clean. “I went through that myself (when she was younger). I loved it. Here, I make the riders totally responsible (for their horse and stall). We have tons and tons of fun.” As her students progress, Cipranic said they can become junior wranglers and help the school during those summer camps as well as on regular days at the barn. While still a fledgling operation, Bluebird Riding School is finding local support. Cipranic said she has enlisted the services of a veterinarian and ferrier. “The horse community here has been just awesome,” she said. “I feel blessed to have this place open up and be receptive to us.”

Surrey Council thanks our volunteers for their service and selfless dedication our our City!

South Surrey residents Maurice and Norma Peacey know first-hand the difficulty that comes with moving to a new city. After spending the past seven years in Kelowna, the Peaceys decided to make the move back to the Lower Mainland, in search of weather that would be a little more temperate than what they were getting in the Okanagan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To be honest, I found the summers too hot and the winters too cold,â&#x20AC;? said Norma, noting they lived in Maple Ridge prior to moving out of the Lower Mainland. The Peaceys moved to the Peninsula March 1, and while they immediately fell in love with the area â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially the waterfront â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Norma admits that finding their way around was a little tricky at first. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It does take a while to get to know a new area,â&#x20AC;? she said. Luckily, Norma knew of a service to help new residents settle in that had been around for a long time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 80 years to be exact â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so she contacted the local Welcome Wagon representatives and was visited just over a month ago by Dawn Corcoran. Armed with information about local services, clubs and facilities â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as well as with some goodies and gift certificates donated by local businesses â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Corcoran shared her knowledge of the community with two of its newest residents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was very informative â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we learned a lot about the area,â&#x20AC;? Norma said of her Welcome Wagon visit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We learned

where the library was and all the things that are going on there, and where all the shops are.â&#x20AC;? Since their visit, the Peaceys have started to explore their community a little more â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Maurice has joined the library and Norma has cashed in her gift certificate for a free loaf of fresh bread. Not only has Welcome Wagon helped the couple to discover services and businesses in their own back yard, Norma said it has assured them they made a great choice in deciding to make the Peninsula their home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We love it here.â&#x20AC;?

Welcome Wagon celebrates eight decades of helping Services include visits to new residents, baby showers and bridal shows

A

nyone who has ever moved will agree that relocating to a new home can be stressful. But moving to a brand new community where you know nothing about local businesses, services, groups and facilities can be downright intimidating. Luckily, the dedicated team at Welcome Wagon is here to extend a hospitable hand to those who are new to the community – and are proud to be celebrating their 80th anniversary this spring. The White ❝I love my Rock/South community, Surrey Welcome and I like telling people Wagon team consists about it.❞ of Dawn Corcoran, Dawn Corcoran JoAnn Smith Welcome Wagon and Sarah Gains, who visit families who are new to the area and provide them with free information about the libraries, garbage and recycling pickup, parks and recreation, trails, community groups and various other local services. Presents and gift certificates donated by participating local businesses are also included in the Welcome Wagon basket.

Thank you for all your community involvement over the past 80 years! “Select the best… Share our passion” 2546 King George Hwy/Blvd. 604-538-8286 www.coastalwinemakers.com

Congratulations to The Welcome Wagon on your 80th anniversary of service to our community...

on each of those occasions. It was upon returning to White Rock more than two decades ago that Corcoran saw an ad looking for a Welcome Wagon representative, and new it was the perfect job for her. Not only is it rewarding to meet new residents and help them get settled in their new

hometown, Corcoran said she enjoys boasting about the wonderful community she calls home. “I love my community and I like telling people about it,” she said. “It’s the best place to live in the world.” Aside from welcoming new residents to the community,

Welcome Wagon also provides helpful services for new parents and couples about to walk down the aisle. New mothers and their babies are visited in the hospital or at home, and showered with gifts from local businesses and valuable information about the exciting journey of parenthood. And for brides-to-be, the popular Welcome Wagon Wedding Showcase takes place with two dates in the Fraser Valley each year, and is the best source of wedding-planning information under one roof. The convenience of having local businesses on hand at the free showcase is two-fold – not only does it help support the local economy when brides and grooms use businesses from their own community, but it also makes the planning process easier, eliminating the need to travel back and forth to Downtown Vancouver when making arrangements. Corcoran said she is looking to add one more part-time representative to the local team – anyone interested should call her at 604-538-3213.

Single influenza vaccine this fall across the country last fall and winter. Chong said the H1N1 vaccine was developed more quickly than usual because of the urgency of the pandemic declared by the World Health Organization, when no one knew how severe it would become. There wasn’t time for the usual testing of potency and stability, and since the purchase, tests have reduced the shelf life to six months, she said. B.C.’s vaccine was purchased in batches, so some of it can still be used until the end of May. There are also 30,000 doses left of a version of the vaccine given to pregnant women and young children, which does retain an 18-month shelf life.

Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – Throwing away more than two million doses of leftover H1N1 influenza vaccine won’t affect B.C.’s immunization program, because a new version that combines seasonal and H1N1 vaccine will be ready this fall. Ida Chong, B.C.’s Minister of Healthy Living and Sport, said B.C. was informed early this month that the shelf life of most H1N1 vaccine bought last year would be only six months, not the 18 months originally expected. B.C. bought a dose for each of the province’s four million residents, and 40 per cent of the population received the shot as the pandemic swept

“I’d encourage people to consider still having their H1N1 shot,” Chong said. “They could be travelling this summer to places where H1N1 could resurface.” An April 12 bulletin from the Public Health Agency of Canada said influenza cases are still being found in the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean, as well as Malaysia, Thailand and West Africa. Influenza typically increases in the southern hemisphere as it enters its winter season. The federal and provincial governments are in negotiations with the vaccine manufacturer over the cost of the leftover vaccine, which was more than $13 million for B.C.

Thing of Beauty C

ount yourself lucky if you have tickets to the two remaining performances (tonight and Saturday) of Earl Marriott Secondary’s sold-out production of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. You’re in for a treat – for eyes, ears and spirit. Alex Browne Marriott, which has famously and historically set the bar high for high school productions, has outdone itself here. This is a show in which just about everything works – and works brilliantly. It’s one of those school productions, so good it virtually defies all criticism. It could be improved only if everyone concerned turned full-time professional (and the show already puts some professional musical theatre I’ve seen to shame). But then you’d run the risk of losing much of the charm – and most of the heart – of this version. Because heart it has, in abundance – from chorus members giving their splendid all in bravura production numbers to principals doing their utmost to embody the characters of the familiar Disney fairy tale. No cardboard cutout reproduction this – everyone does his or her bit to transform the cartoon fable into a viable work of theatre enjoyable on its own merits. While the young performers can be proud of their achievement, the contributions of adult staff, volunteers, alumni and parents can’t be praised too highly. Producer-director Candace Radcliffe’s passion for the project has communicated itself to every aspect of the production, and the show stands as a personal triumph for her. The choreography of Carol Seitz, the choral direction of Bev Schellenberg and the musical direction of Rodger Owens are all superlative. Also of inestimable value to this gorgeous-

Earl Marriott’s production of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, which has two remaining performances, is full of spirit, heart and talent. looking extravaganza are the costumes supervised by Linda Weston and Lil Stewart, the simple, yet effective, set design of Nicole Chartrand, the props supervision of Maxine Lloyd, the makeup management of Emma Waterman, and an army of volunteers and crew who make everything – from hair, makeup and costumes to set construction and scene changes – happen smoothly. Smooth, too, is the work of the orchestra in bringing out the tonal colours of the string-heavy score and hitting all the cues – so smooth, in fact, that one can often forget that it is students playing, and not a

soundtrack orchestra. Beauty and the Beast is fortunate, however, to have the perfect combination of talents on stage, and – unusually, for a high school musical – all of them have fine singing voices. This is particularly true of Ginny Dunnill in the key role of Belle, who also provides just the right blend of spirit and sentiment to bring her character to vibrant life. Tom Watkin, while encumbered by costume and makeup as the Beast, makes the most of body language and vocal quality to convey the creature’s tortured emotions. Both seem to come fully into their own in the second

act, and when romance develops between Beauty and Beast, the honesty and acting ability of these two performers brings a truly touching quality to the show. As the extravagant, hyper-emotional, animated candlestick Lumiere, talented singer-comedian Sean Goodall steals scenes left, right and centre. In the less showy role of clock Cogsworth, Erik Kavanaugh provides just the right touch of repressed correctness to make an effective foil. Marika Stanger plays the role of saucy feather duster Babette with all the cheeky assurance it needs, and Tess  see page 34

Proceeds from sale of Wynn Tetrault’s paintings to benefit White Rock Players Club

Work of late art enthusiast to be auctioned off Alex Browne Arts Reporter

Wynn Tetrault, who passed away last June, was a founding member of the White Rock Players Club.

Sometimes there’s a rightness to an event that seems to ensure its success – even if simply on an emotional level. That’s bound to be the case with an afternoon auction of paintings by the late Wynn Tetrault to benefit the White Rock Players Club (Sunday, May 2, 2 p.m., Coast Capital Playhouse, 1532 Johnston Rd. ) If anyone typified a co-operative approach to the arts in White Rock, it was Tetrault. With one foot proudly in the theatre community and another proudly in the visual arts community, the fondly remembered painter and actress – a founder member of the Players Club – would, even in later years, lend her

Young cast full of talent  from page 33 Adebar brings both strong vocal ability and good natured characterization to opera singer-turnedwardrobe Madame De La Grand Bouche. But top vocal honours must go to Sabrielle McCurdyForman, who delivers a beautiful, well-nigh flawless performance of the Beauty and the Beast theme (“A tale as old as time…) as well as a wonderfully sympathetic interpretation of teapot Mrs. Potts. And Katie Yott is both charming and touching as Chip, Potts’ little boy-turnedteacup. As Gaston, Belle’s arrogant and ignorant suitor, Jeremy Lord often seems to have stepped straight out of the animation cels in both gesture and vocal quality. It’s an excellent realization that in no way diminishes his own stature as an actor. Brett McCready, too, might seem to totally subsume himself to the energetic requirements of LeFou, Gaston’s frenzied sidekick – but it’s also a strong, very well-judged performance. Parker Tully plays Belle’s eccentric inventor dad Maurice with a great deal of charm, while Hunter Golden contributes strong stage presence and powerful baritone to the villainous Monsieur D’Arque, proprietor of the local asylum. As the ‘Silly Girls’ who pursue Gaston, Tessa Burnside, Kelsey Hartman and Kate Kysow are appropriately twittery, jealous and over-dramatic – as well as adding to their talents to a chorus that consistently excels, whether impersonating villagers or dancing cutlery, plates and napkins.

Art spruces up theatre lobby  from page 33 anything to do with the arts (Richard recalls that, when he was a child, the family home was often cluttered with silk-screening equipment for making Players Club posters). Mayor Catherine Ferguson will host the auction in tribute to Tetrault, he added. Richard, who grew up in White Rock, was often a backstage observer and later a volunteer for Players Club productions, but can recall only one nervous occasion of being onstage, in a now-forgotten pantomime. It was his mother’s passion for painting that really fired his imagination, he recalled. “She enrolled me in a children’s class with Claude Burnett, painting from nature in Semiahmoo Park, when I was five years old. “I just loved it. I was about 10 or 11 when I first went on location painting with mom. (Painter) Egbert Oudendaag became a big influence, and the three of us would often go out painting together.” While Tetrault made no specific bequest to the Players Club, it was a cause that always close to her heart, Richard said, recalling how the idea for the auction took shape with himself and his brothers, Daniel and Ronald. A historic Tetrault painting of the old White Rock Playhouse is on permanent display in the lobby. “She did want one particular painting to go to the City of White Rock, a beautiful painting of the waterfront before the reworking of the promenade – which is also a lovely painting in other ways. We’re in the process of donating that to the city.” Having decided that donating paintings to benefit the Players Club would be in keeping with Tetrault’s wishes, the family and the club still needed to organize an event. “(Board member) Geoff Giffin heroically took it on,” Richard said. Hanging Tetrault’s art in the Coast Capital Playhouse lobby is in keeping with recent developments at the theatre, which

of art,” he said. It has also been an opportunity for Players Club member Tom Saunders to revisit the archives and arrange a display highlighting Tetrault’s role in the history of the club, Giffin said. “The show has a natural sense of place and time that is really nice – I think it makes the theatre look wonderful.” The gala event May 2

Opera season back at theatre Alex Browne Arts Reporter

Opera returns to the big screen in White Rock this month with a performance of Gioachino Rossini’s famed The Barber of Seville at 2 p.m., Sunday, April 25 at Coast Capital Playhouse, 1532 Johnston Rd. Superstar tenor Juan Diego Florez headlines the digital record of Teatro Real of Madrid’s standout production of the durable 1816 masterpiece. The White Rock Peninsula Rotary Club, high-definition digital distributors Digiscreen and White Rock Players Club once again join forces for the special presentation, part of a series that continues with the Last Night of the Proms (recorded at London’s Royal Albert Hall) on May 7, and La Traviata (recorded at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden) on May 9. Based on part of French playwright Pierre Beaumarchais’ Figaro trilogy (which also provided the material for Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro some 30 years earlier) the comic opera brims with memorable melodies wrapped around a plot recounting the efforts of Figaro the barber, to

help his former master, Count Almaviva – disguised as a poor student, Lindoro – to woo and win the fair Rosina, ward of the suspicious Dr. Bartolo. The Teatro Real production has won praise internationally, described by Classical Net Review as “overflowing with a mischievous joy for life that is infectious.” And Florez was singled out by the London Sunday Times as “dazzlingly virtuosic.” But another star of the production is the venue in which it was recorded. Madrid’s historic Opera House in the city’s Plaza de Oriente, is now classed as a national monument. Originally opened in 1850 and long a prominent venue in the European opera circuit, it was reopened in 1997 after extensive renovations. While its huge stage now includes 18 articulated platforms providing the space for complex scene changes, architects ensured that the auditorium retained all its exquisite historical details, such as the traditional drop curtain and exact reproductions of the original decorated ceilings and boxes installed in 1850.

2008. Before being chosen for the World Series position, Train’s application went through the local district administrator and the provincial, national and international Little League organizations. According to a Little League International release, the appointment is the highest honour Little League baseball can bestow on an umpire. “Selection as an umpire at any of Little League’s eight World Series means that person has reached the highest level of proficiency and by virtue of their selection is considered among the best in the world,” it states.

Train started his run as an umpire as his sons stopped theirs as players. “My boys played baseball, so I used to go watch them, and after they stopped playing, I missed the game and I decided that I would like to umpire,” he said, noting his first experience in the role came even earlier. “I was out watching a game with my boys playing, and they didn’t have an umpire, so I volunteered to umpire the game and I liked it. “It’s being part of the game.” That involvement is worth the difficulties that come with the job, he said, such as angry parents and coaches who disagree with calls.

“You put up with an awful lot of abuse but, overall, it’s all about the kids and the game, and that’s what I enjoy.” This summer will be Train’s first experience umpiring in a World Series. Although he’s nervous, it’s not because of the high skill-level players he will be facing. “I do college, so college ball is a good level of ball, and so is the premier league, but it’s nervousness to the point where it’s on such a big stage.” One Canadian team will play in the series July 28 to Aug. 4, and a number of B.C. squads will vie for the spot, including the Whalley Chiefs.

ince he first got behind the wheel of a car as a teenager, Grant Eldridge has been worried about speed – about finding ways to go just a little bit faster on the race track, shaving off precious split seconds. “In racing, a 10th of a second is pretty big, and you go to great lengths to get every last second out of the car,” said the long-time South Surrey resident, who bought his first car at 15 and began racing three years later. Now though, it’s not time he needs, but space. As in space to put his car – a pearl blue 1967 Chevrolet Camaro – back together in time for the next race season. For years, Eldridge, 64, raced a 1969 Chevrolet Nova – driving it on tracks from Mission to Idaho to California – and even set a national record with it in 2006, clocking a quarter-mile time of 11.06 seconds, hitting

about 125 miles-per-hour on the speedometer. But a year ago, he sold the car and bought a 1967 Chevrolet Camaro in order to drag race in a higher division – the stock eliminator class. Eldridge’s first task with his new car, even before doing any engine work, was to get it painted, which required the car to be taken apart. Now, the paint job complete, the car is being stored in a trailer. But Eldridge, who lives in a stratarun complex without adequate space, is having trouble finding enough room to put it back together. “I used to rent Contributed photo a garage from a friend of mine, but she recently moved to Maine Island,” Eldridge explained, adding that his storage trailer, eight feet in width, is not wide enough for him to have both car doors open, thus making re-assembly difficult. In the meantime, while he waits in limbo, the South Surrey racer Brian Giebelhaus photo tinkers with parts of the car he’s South Surrey’s Grant Eldridge – seen at left in his early days of racing in the ’60s – is looking for a garage  see page 40 where he can complete the work on his 1967 Chevrolet Camaro, which he bought a year ago.

White Rock Junior Tritons catcher Preston Kokotailo is knocked off balance by Okanagan Junior Athletics runner Kody Smith – resulting in the runner being called out – during double header action at South Surrey Athletic Park Sunday. The Tritons ended the day with one win (3-2) and one loss (4-6).

Tritons win one Car should be ready to race by winter of three games The White Rock Tritons won one of three games earlier this week, starting with a split against the Victoria Eagles Saturday at South Surrey Athletic Park, before losing 5-0 to the Abbotsford Cardinals at home Tuesday. White Rock fell behind 5-1 early against Victoria in the first game Saturday, then scored three times in the final

two innings to cut the difference to one run in a 5-4 loss. In game two, Josh Larsen allowed just one run on four hits and a walk, leading the Tritons to a 3-1 victory, their first of the season. White Rock travels to Kelowna this weekend for a fourgame series with the Okanagan Athletics. – Rick Kupchuk

 from page 39 able to in such a confined space, but admits that not being able to race this season – the Mission Raceway season begins in May – is tough to stomach. After all, racing has always been a huge part of Eldridge’s life ever since, as a 15-year-old in White Rock, he bought a 1941 Ford convertible from his neighbour for $100. “My interest in cars was really spurred on by my neighbour, a guy named Vic Lacey,” Eldridge explained. “Whenever there were any problems with the car, he’d teach me how to fix

them... ever since, I guess you could say it’s been a bit of an obsession. “And I’m not racing right now, and you see the track reports of other guys going faster and faster, and you just want to be out there.” Putting the car back together will take about six months of evening and weekend work, Eldridge predicted. He hopes to have the car ready for the winter racing season in Pomona, Calif. If he can’t find a suitable solution, Eldridge says he’ll just continue to plug away when the weather and his schedule allows, but it would

certainly delay the process. “If I have to pull the car out of the trailer on nice days and work on it outside, I will, but it means I have to spend time picking up the trailer, taking everything out, then putting it back,” he explained. “It’s just a lot of wasted time and a lot of work. I’ll do it if I have to, but I’m hoping that somebody out there will have some extra space they wouldn’t mind letting me use for awhile.” Anyone interested in contacting Eldridge can email him at granteldridge@shaw.ca

OBITUARIES

CHILDREN

TORNO, Michael J.

June 4, 1937 – April 8, 2010 With unbearable sorrow, we announce the unexpected passing of our cherished husband and father, after a short but tenacious battle with pneumonia at Langley Memorial Hospital. Deeply mourning Mike’s loss are his soul-mate, best friend, and wife of 29 years, Anne, and their beloved daughter, Kristen. Mike was born and raised in Toronto, and in 1979, moved with Anne to Vancouver, marrying and settling in Langley two years later. An accountant and businessman, he worked in various industries before joining Rollins Machinery, where he served as Controller of the company for over 14 years. In 2000, he founded and assumed the management of a “spin-off” company within Rollins, Broker Plus Insurance Services, where he worked until his passing. Broker Plus was Mike’s “baby”, and his staff, like a second family. His colleagues there and at Rollins join Anne and Kris in missing him dearly, as do a wide circle of friends. Mike was a kind, patient, and generous man, with a quick wit and an easy smile, who always saw the bright side of even the blackest situation. His talents were wide-ranging: he was extremely tech-savvy; knew his way around the kitchen; and could build, wire, or fix anything. However, his greatest strength was as a partner and a parent. He was his daughter’s fondest teacher, advisor, and friend -- a superb role model who delighted in Kris’s every success and adventure. With Anne, he shared an exceptionally special bond. They loved their life together, from the simple pleasures – working around their home and garden, strolling along Coal Harbor or Harrison Lake, visiting with their daughter -- to the luxuries: the fine dining and good wine; the VSO concerts and live theatre performances; the occasional weekend getaways to the Vancouver Hyatt, Seattle, and Kelowna; the longer escapes to San Diego and Palm Springs; and the supertrips to France and the Caribbean. The highlight of their post-child-rearing years was their annual winter vacation in Mexico or the Hawaiian Islands. Maui came to be their “home away from home” -- and watching humpback whales from their lanai, and snorkeling with sea turtles and tropical fish, their favorite pastimes. They were torn from each other far too soon. There will be no service, by request. In Mike’s memory, please consider a donation to the BC Cancer Foundation or Canuck Place. Honey, we really were “two peas in a pod”. I’ll love you forever. … A.

JACK, Patricia Pauline In loving memory of our mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Patricia Pauline Jack. Born August 11th, 1925 in Surrey England, Patricia passed on April 13th, 2010 after a courageous struggle with cancer. Pat is survived by her brother, Trevor and her children – son Ian (Lesley) and daughter Pauline. Also, grandchildren Colin (Michelle), Gillian and Catherine (Rob), great-grandson Gabriel (age 3). Pat was predeceased by her beloved husband Gordon who passed in January 2009 - they enjoyed almost 60 years of marriage and many fabulous cruises and travels abroad. Pat’s life was blessed with very special friendships, wonderful neighbours and in her final months, a group of extraordinary health-care staff in White Rock and South Surrey. Special recognition to “guardian angels” Roseanne, Sandra, Jo-Ann, Ann and Stephanie who went above and beyond in helping to make Pat’s final months as peaceful and comfortable as possible. We also acknowledge and thank Pat’s extended family… particularly her nieces and nephews Moyra (Reg), Dorothy, Christine (Bob), Graham (Marilyn) and Mary (Dennis) who rallied around and gave so generously of their love and time to help celebrate Pat’s life while she was still able to enjoy their presence. What a family - a family for whom Pat was unstinting in her gratitude and praise. At Pat’s request, there will not be a service. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation in Pat’s name to Peace Arch Hospital in White Rock. God bless and keep you Mum.
