Stabbing victim remembered

Slain teen ‘got along with everyone’ Kevin Diakiw Black Press

He was a soft-spoken teen who had recently embraced his Haida roots. With eight-per-cent body fat, martial arts enthusiast Devon Allaire-Bell may have looked like a warrior, but he wouldn’t raise a hand unless it was in self-defence, according to his dad. “He got along with everyone, he had Devon Allaire-Bell a smile for everyone,” Wayne Bell said

Wednesday. “He was the kind of kid that when I came home from work, every day, he had the same question for me: ‘How was work dad?’” On Sunday night, the 19-year-old Newton teenager and his life-long pal, Jack Neilsen, were at Frank Hurt Secondary, near 138 Street and 77 Avenue, drinking and playing soccer. Six young men confronted the pair. A knife was drawn and both were stabbed.

Allaire-Bell died shortly after. Nielsen remains in serious condition in hospital. Investigators believe the six assailants fled southwest on foot through a greenbelt that leads onto 76 Avenue. They are described as young South Asian males, dressed in dark clothing and thought to be approximately 20 years of age. Police are now reviewing video, taken at the school, of potential suspects. Bell believes if a weapon wasn’t

involved, the scrap would have had an entirely different outcome. His son was involved in mixed-martial arts, with interests in parkour, boxing, Brazilian jiu-jitsu and Muay Thai fighting. “I’m still trying to come to grips with the whole thing, the senselessness of it,” Bell said. “What kind of society have we become that we accept this kind of behaviour from anybody?”  see page 4

Bylaw enforcers to be given more power in White Rock

Commissionaires’ rule ends after 22 years Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

The City of White Rock says it is putting more bite into its bylaw enforcement. Starting next week, commissionaires – who have been contracted to provide bylaw and animal-control services since 1989 – will no longer be charged with ensuring the city’s bylaws are followed, said Paul Stanton, the city’s director of planning and development services. The duties will instead be tasked to individuals hired and trained by the city.

The move is a result of complaints, coupled with a desire to focus beyond parking infractions to ensuring rules such as those regulating smoking and dog control are abided by, Stanton said. “We keep getting complaints about dogs on the beach, not enforcing the smoking bylaw…” Stanton said Wednesday. “Starting next week, the city will be taking a new focus.” Commissionaires BC vice-president of operations Doug Stuckel, however, said the city assured him there were no concerns with the

service; that the decision was simply about restructuring. He noted five of six full-time commissionaires who were serving White Rock under the contract have been hired under the new structure. “I’m thinking we must have been providing a pretty good service if they’ve hired five of our commissionaires,” Stuckel said, describing the loss of any contract as “regrettable.” The city’s contract with the commissionaires ends Saturday.  see page 4

A Surrey man was shot and killed during an apparent road-rage confrontation Wednesday night. The victim’s wife, who was in the car at the time, was unharmed. The incident happened just before 11 p.m. near 128 Street and 68 Avenue. Homicide investigators are calling on anyone who may have witnessed a white SUV – possibly a Ford Explorer – driving erratically in the area and speeding away from the scene. Police say the 30-year-old victim got out of his Lexus to confront the driver of the SUV after it crossed the centre line and caused minor damage to his vehicle. The man was shot, perhaps several times. One witness told media he heard at least six shots. Cpl. Dale Carr, with the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, said the victim was pronounced dead later in hospital. “The driver is described as a South Asian male, driving a white SUV, thought to be a Ford Explorer, with a silver trim along the bottom,” Carr said. Traffic on 128 Street was disrupted Thursday morning between 68 and 70 avenues, while investigators and forensics experts combed the scene for evidence. Anyone in the area at the time of the shooting is asked to call 1-877-551-4448 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

excellent book, The Red Wall, by Jane Hall, it was tough for many of the early female officers when they joined what had been a male-only bastion. Surrey was also on the front line when Baltej Singh Dhillon became the first Sikh with a turban and beard to join the force. The level of debate (some of which was nasty and racist) over this issue would be incomprehensible to many young people today. However, as editor of the Surrey Leader at the time, I handled many letters to the editor on the topic, and can attest to how nasty some comments were. Dhillon was very well qualified to join the force, with a criminology education, a background as a Surrey Block Watch volunteer and the ability to speak five languages. When Commissioner Norman Inkster decided that the force should lift its prohibition against members wearing turbans, he was able to join. Today, he is a sergeant in the provincial intelligence centre, with more than 20 years experience. He has been a trailblazer in many ways within the RCMP. Today’s Surrey RCMP is a modern, progressive police force with some top-notch leaders, under the overall management of Chief Supt. Fraser McRae. It has had its share of controversies, but deals with them effectively. It has come a long way since 1951. Frank Bucholtz writes Fridays for the Peace Arch News.

Just in time for the May 2 federal election – and in an effort to distinguish among the 19 candidates running in the three federal ridings served by the Peace Arch News – we asked each one to respond to our all-too-brief questionnaire. Candidates were asked to name their top three issues (each in three words or less) and to tell us why they should be elected to Parliament (in 30 words or less).

‘Outpouring of sympathy’ for family  from page 1 A vigil was held at Frank Hurt on Monday night, where a large number of people came out. Bell was there and was taken aback by the turnout. “He impressed so many people. I’m amazed at the outpouring of sympathy that we have gotten from so many people,” Bell said. “It’s absolutely amazing the lives he had touched.” The emotion of the night was echoed online on Facebook. “R.I.P devon, if you could see the turn out yesterday, you’d see you gunna be greatly greatly missed,” Dylan Dawson posted. “The heavens have a new angel now, watch down on your family

big guy.” “My deepest, heartfelt condolences to Wayne and Cynthia and all the family members,” wrote Jeannie Klein. “You are a much loved and respected family, and this should not happen to your beautiful boy.” “Rest In Peace Devon you were amazing and touched so many peoples lives,” wrote Chantel Thompson. “Whenever I saw you, I got a warm feeling inside because of your positive and caring energy… Rest in paradise handsome.” Bell said parents are never ready for this outcome. “I sat back in preparation of them (my sons) burying me, not

this,” Bell said. “I’m so proud to have had him for 19 years.” Investigators would like to speak to anyone who knows of any suspicious activity around the school or the nearby greenbelt between 8 and 9 p.m. April 24. Anyone with information is asked to call the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team tip line at 1-877-551-4448 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. A trust fund has been set up for the family so they can return Devon’s remains to his hometown of Old Massett in Haida Gwaii. Donations can be made at any VanCity credit union under the account Devon Allaire-Bell in Trust, account number 269654.

Peace officers to have more power  from page 1 Mayor Catherine Ferguson said council began discussing the matter behind closed doors in January. It is to be formalized at the May 9 council meeting. Ferguson described the switch as an “organizational change” that will improve service to residents with little to no budgetary implications. It separates parking enforcement from other bylaw issues, and ensures those enforcing the city’s rules have the proper training and authority to do so. One significant change will be the appointment of peace offi-

cers, who have more power when it comes to seizing dogs deemed dangerous or issuing infraction tickets. Stanton said the new officers will also be better-equipped to deal with contentious situations, both as a result of their additional powers and because they will be trained in conflict management. “If (offenders) try to tell them where to go, then they run a higher risk of a higher offence of obstruction of justice, in which case we can bring in the RCMP,” he said. Stanton added that having the

officers as city employees will give the city better control over training, as well as the ability to discipline in the event of problems. Coun. Lynne Sinclair said the new approach is one all of council supported. “When you don’t have teeth to enforce the bylaw, that’s been a problem for us,” she said. “This will give us a measure of control over our standards, in terms of how we approach people, how we enforce, the degree to which we enforce. “It was very clear that this was the right way to go.”

Spirited democracy


ven the largest political machine armed with the most sophisticated scientific polling methods and strategists can’t tell you with absolute certainty who the winners will be in Monday’s federal election. But to accurately predict the losers, one needs only a mirror. Some call it the election nobody wanted, but surely a country doesn’t go to the polls without some foresight and planning in the back rooms of the major parties. Given the mood of the country right now, such visionaries were shortsighted. The Conservatives want a majority; for the Liberals and New Democrats, any kind of win should do; and for the Greens, any win, anywhere, would be an improvement. It’s quite possible all will fail to achieve such presumed goals. That will leave Canadians no better – and an estimated $300 million worse – than before the election was foisted on us. Some of the smaller parties and independents acknowledge they’re running primarily to raise issues at election time, when the media – and public – should be most hungry for political sustenance. In doing so, they risk splitting the bigger parties’ votes, usually giving incumbents the edge. If that is the case in the three ridings in Peace Arch News’ readership – that two Conservatives and a Liberal will be returned to power locally – it would be interesting to learn whether the 16 also-rans thought it was worth it. This isn’t meant to criticize the unsuccessful candidates. Their efforts, above and beyond what the rest of us are doing for democracy, are part of what makes this country strong. In many cases they have raised serious issues, voiced legitimate concerns and have even tried to suggest intelligent solutions for problems that affect most Canadian voters. A cynic might suggest some have been too serious and intelligent for what often ends up being a jockeying for position by major parties. If the object of the game is simply to dethrone the ‘King of the Castle’ in each riding, only those with heaviest ammunition need apply; the battle needn’t have much to do with common sense. But the costly business of going to the polls has to have more significance than a popularity contest, or a down-to-the-wire playoff game. Agree or disagree with their views, we must recognize that most of the candidates have given serious thought to the issues confronting us all. They aren’t just making a grab for power – they’re trying to come to grips with our future. For that reason alone, Canadians should applaud and seriously heed the input of all candidates in this election – not just those who wind up with the biggest numbers Monday night.

235 responding Ken Dryden liked easy shots, too, and always made sure he had a good save on the last shot of the Montreal Canadiens’ pre-game warm-up. Athletes do this kind of thing all the time, and if they weren’t beloved by their fans, many would be dismissed as freaks at worst, or at best, as having a severe case of OCD. According to Andrew Podnieks’ book, Hockey Superstitions: From Playoff Beards to Crossed Sticks and Lucky Socks, Boston Bruin Ray Bourque changed his skate laces before each game and at every intermission, tossing the old ones. That’s thousands of laces throughout his career. In the 1970s, the New York Islanders carried around a bag of elephant dung when it seemed to bring them luck. Even the Great One leaned on superstitious rituals. Between pre-game warm-up and the start of the game, Wayne Gretzky would reportedly drink four beverages in this order: Diet Coke, ice water, Gatorade and a second Diet Coke. It’s common for players to always put their gear on in a pre-determined order, and most teams come out on the ice in the same fashion. For all those people who avoided watching Game 7 because the last time they did we lost, who parted their hair on the “lucky side,” or wore the same pair of underwear throughout the entire Vancouver-Chicago series, thank you.

Graciousness in ownership Editor: A while back, I read the three new branding ideas for the City of White Rock: ‘City by the Sea,’ ‘Abundantly Beautiful’ and ‘West Coast Gem.’ I have to admit that none of them initially inspired me. Then, I reluctantly attended a meeting hosted by the City of White Rock where they launched the committee’s number-one branding selection idea, and suddenly it all clicked. Chris Thornley’s presentation was fabulous, and I realized he and his committee had nailed it! They understood White Rock consists of diversified, passionate citizens who care about White Rock in a way that is unique to each other. Sometimes we appear to have polar-opposite views, but if you truly listen, you will see our views are not so opposite. After everything is said and done, we all have one thing in common; we passionately care for White Rock. After hearing the committee’s choice – “My city by the sea” – I knew they had a winner. Chris was able to demonstrate that this brand could accommodate individualized tag lines unique to each group or citizen. “My city by the sea… is a West Coast gem.” “My city by the sea… is abundantly beautiful.” “My city by the sea… is open for business.” The list goes on and on. At first I was scared by the word “my,” as an image sprang to mind of children tugging at a playground toy – ‘It’s mine’, ‘No, it’s mine!’ Then I realized Chris Thornley doesn’t see us as playground kids fighting over a treasure but as citizens with immense pride, showing a gracious ownership we demonstrate in everyday life: ‘Welcome to my home.’ ‘Let me introduce my children’. ‘Welcome to my city by the sea!’ As Chris so eloquently stated, whether we like it or not, change is coming. We need to ask ourselves, do we want to be in front of it, guiding and nurturing it, or behind it wondering what went wrong? I want to be in front of it, because after all, it is ‘My city by the sea!’ Cyndie Richards, White Rock

Political decisions Editor: As a 70-year-old third-generation Canadian, I am surprised my peer group votes solidly Conservative. The Liberals gave us medicare, old-age security and pensions, all three of which we geezers need more and more. They left behind, a few years ago, a reliable and secure economy, which Stephen Harper now takes credit for. The American Republican party attack ads seem most identified with the Conservatives. Well, I’m voting Liberal. Because I’m old. Because I’m loyal. Because I’m Canadian. Jim Ison, Surrey Q I am a veteran of the Second World

War, a seventh-generation Canadian from 1784, and have seen a lot of electioneering in my 90 years. I attended both recent candidate meetings where Hardy Staub, Liberal candidate, came across as the playground bully. He took every opportunity to attack Russ Hiebert, the Conservative candidate, and in doing so, he usually failed to address the questions directed at him. It resulted in knowing what he was going to say every time he had the floor. Rarely did he discuss what his party platform was. Liberal Staub is not the person I want to represent me in Ottawa. In defence of Hiebert’s past high costs, he has listened to his constituents’ criticisms and is now

in the lowest third of B.C. MPs. He has worked hard for us and we have benefitted by way of $100 million for community projects. J. Wright, Surrey Q Let’s remember on May 2 every one of those awful Russ Hiebert brochures that landed so often in our mailboxes and was paid for by us, the taxpayer. And that while we squeeze into an economy seat on an airline, that same guy was in executive class with all his family beside him, and we paid for that, too. I speak of him in the past tense hoping it will be that way for good. He didn’t do much except hand out Harper money from time to time, as

if he was doing us a personal favour. The man simply wasn’t cut out to represent a constituency. Hopefully he’ll now be free to go back to lawyering. Maybe he’s better at that. Mary Garner, White Rock Q I am appalled that you published the recent letter of Ken Hollas (Party politics plays part at polls, April 22), saying “Conservatives get support from corporations.” The federal Elections Act was amended nearly a decade ago to prohibit corporate and union donations. No party accepts such donations. The Peace Arch News should know better. Marilyn Cheng, manager of the Russ Hiebert campaign

I suggest those who so defiantly defend these trees aren’t looking at them through their beach and water views.a Susan C. Mueller

White Rock council’s decision in January to replace a small stand of trees on Royal Avenue has spurred debate.

Different views on trees in city Editor: Re: I love trees but I want my view, April 20 letters. Bravo to letter-writer Linda Carvajal’s comments. Since our marriage 30 years ago, we dreamed of owning a home in White Rock with an ocean view. Ten years ago, after the kids moved on, we sold our home in Surrey. In September 2003, our dream came true when we purchased a condo with a beautiful ocean view, and I must say we paid a premium price for this. Now, due to the growth of trees in our neighbourhood, we are losing our once-lifetime dream. Don’t get me wrong. I love trees, too. But there is a place for them. What would be wrong with a bylaw that restricts trees to no more then building height. We implore council to do something to save our views, so we may once again be able to live our dream. Randy & Janet Henley, White Rock Q To Linda Carvajal who wants her view: when we moved to White Rock in 1952, we could look up from the beach without seeing all those ugly homes on the hill. We never had any problems with landslides due to erosion on the hillsides. We could go pick wild blackberries and salmonberries and pick fruit in the summertime. We could see deer and other wild animals in White Rock, because there were trees. The view I would like to see is that they bulldoze everything down within a mile of the beachfront and return it back to nature. I have a very strong feeling that if your house slides down the hill due to heavy rains and erosion, you won’t be worrying about your view. Dan Ashby, White Rock Q White Rock is branded as a seaside community with breathtaking ocean views. The official city website informs us of steadily increasing property values due to White Rock’s attractive setting and amenities. No property value is increased by tree-obstructed views. Many of the evergreens, planted long ago, have been left to grow unmanaged to quite substantial heights. Those trees belong in a forest. To my knowledge, the city employs an arbourist who would know which types of species are suitable to plant within city limits and how to shape them attractively. Barbara Notheis, White Rock

Re: Few move here to look at trees, April 22 letters. I would like to add my support to the statements expressed by letter-writers John and Patricia Samson. This area is indeed known for, and sought after, because of its stunning views. It is for this reason land values are high, and thus exorbitant taxes can be levied. The City of White Rock owns an amazing amount of property, in the form of easements, laneways, etc. Although they make some effort to contain the grasses, they rarely address the issue of overgrown trees, hedges and bushes. It is their responsibility to ensure excessive growth does not become a detriment to taxpayers’ views, and it is in no way justifiable to expect payment of $10,000-$15,000 to make up for their lack of diligence. I suggest those who so defiantly defend these trees aren’t looking at them through their beach and water views. Susan C. Mueller, White Rock Q Have the tree-cutting proponents lost their minds? Why don’t we just cut down all those trees so everyone can then have views that consist only of other houses? Trees do much more than “block views.” They clean the air pollution coming from Vancouver and provide nesting for birds. Have you noticed how aromatic the air is in White Rock compared to Vancouver? Homeowners who want trees removed to provide views bought their properties knowing there were trees or the possibility of tree growth. Perhaps this is all about improving the resale values of their properties? If those near the beach want a view, why not burn calories and walk to the beach where the view is breathtaking? Oh, I forgot. That view is free for everyone. B. Cunningham, White Rock Q Yes, this is an ocean-view city, not a tree-view city. The city should be required to prune trees, as property owners request, in an attempt to continue a view that has been disrupted by the growth of a tree or a hedge. I would like to see the bylaw include pruning of trees on private property. Owners allow trees to grow out of proportion where it doesn’t affect their views. They don’t consider the inconvenience of others higher up the slope. Such owners should be required, upon request, to trim trees sufficiently to replace the original view. Gerry Houlden, Surrey

Victim ‘didn’t hear train’

Alcohol not a factor: police Alcohol is not believed a factor in an April 22 railway incident that ended with a Surrey man losing his foot. The 41-year-old’s limb was severed between the knee and ankle around 1:30 p.m. when he was struck from behind by a freight train as he walked on tracks along White Rock beach, south of the 13800-block of Marine Drive. Repeated attempts to warn the man of the approaching train were unsuccessful, likely because he was listening to music on headphones, Cpl. Nina Phillipson said. “The train was blaring, blaring, blaring its horn.”

The man remains in stable condition in hospital. Police hope to speak with him directly this weekend to glean more information, but do not believe intoxication played a role. “We suspect he was just walking down the tracks,” Phillipson said. Phillipson said the incident is a reminder to people visiting the beach to be “super vigilant” near the tracks, which are BNSF property. “Not only is it against the law, it is so dangerous.” The incident is being investigated by BNSF and local authorities. - Tracy Holmes

Injury suffered during 2009 Canucks celebration

Officer sues RCMP over broken leg Kevin Diakiw Black Press

An RCMP officer is suing his bosses for not adequately protecting him during a raucous Canucks celebration in Newton two years ago. RCMP member Rasheed Mohammed Koya attended a large gathering of people at 72 Avenue and Scott Road in Surrey in April 2009, when a mob showed up to sound off about a Canucks win. The crowd became large, and a group got physical with police. “One individual from this crowd pushed a junior RCMP member, and an altercation ensued,” according to a statement of claim filed in B.C. Supreme Court April 19. Koya attempted to arrest the individual, who resisted, causing

Koya to fall. Three people then fell on top of him, breaking his leg. The B.C. Ambulance Service had trouble accessing the area because of the large crowd, which peaked at around 1,500 people. Koya underwent surgery two on April 23, when steel was inserted to his tibia and fibula to reinforce them. “The RCMP failed to protect the Plaintiff while he was on duty, and the RCMP failed to adequately respond to the incident that gave rise to his injury,” the statement of claim says.

On May 5, 2009, Koya was scheduled for a tryout for the Emergency Response Team (ERT), but was forced to cancel it because of the injury to his leg. “As a result of the steel that was inserted into the Plaintiff ’s leg to reinforce his bones, he remains unable to complete the rigorous six week training program required to successfully become part of the ERT,” the claim states. Koya is seeking general, aggravated and punitive damages as well as costs. A statement of defence has not been filed yet.

MS fundraiser to hit White Rock beach Sunday

Walking for mom Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter


ori Thompson was just two when her mother was diagnosed with progressive multiple sclerosis, an incurable disease of the central nervous system that can result in the weakening – or loss – of physical functions. In the case of Thompson’s mom, Rita, she initially experienced demyelination of the spine, as well as impaired balance and mobility that forced her to use a cane, then a walker, and, eventually, a wheelchair. “I don’t remember her any other way,” Thompson, now 38, said. Growing up, Thompson and her older sister grew used to the presence of a government-provided assistant who would help make their lunches ❝MS just and get them to school. “She was almost like doesn’t another mother to us get a lot of because she was there exposure. I’d every day.” Due to funding like to see more people cutbacks, that aid was no longer available by the talk about it.❞ time Thompson and her Lori Thompson sibling reached about 11 and 13 years old. Throughout her life, the South Surrey resident has watched her mother live with a disease that is both debilitating and unpredictable. Rita’s health went downhill quickly for a 10-year period, before stabilizing for another decade. The MS has been more progressive again in the last 15 years or so. Now 64, it has affected her speech and small motor skills, such as the ability to put a key in the door, button a shirt or use a knife. While living with a parent with a disability has come with its challenges, Thompson said it has had a positive impact on her life, teaching her to not take anything for granted. “It’s made me a much more empathetic person and made me more aware and conscious of other people’s needs,” she said, noting it had an influence on her current career in massage therapy, Pilates

Multiple sclerosis facts: • MS affects vision, speech, hearing, memory, balance and mobility. Symptoms include extreme fatigue, double vision and paralysis. • Its effects are physical, emotional and last a lifetime. There is no cure. • While it is most often diagnosed in young adults, it also affects children, some as young as two years old. • MS Society of Canada volunteers and staff provide information, support, and other resources for people with MS. • Canadians have one of the highest rates of MS in the world. • MS is the most common neurological disease affecting young adults in Canada. • Women are more than three times as likely to develop MS as men.

Lori Thompson has formed Team Rita for this weekend’s MS Walk, in honour of her mom. instruction and energy healing. “It’s lead me to the path that I’m on, which is doing work in health, fitness and healing.” Thompson said she has also learned from her parents’ relationship. Rita and

Gary – who live in Ocean Park – have been married for more than 45 years and “are still going strong.” “I really was able to see and experience what true and unconditional love is through

my parents’ commitment to one another.” Despite being the most common neurological disease affecting young adults in the country (according to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada), there is not enough awareness about it, Thompson said. The problem is not that people are misinformed, she added, but that they are not informed at all. “In my experience, MS just doesn’t get a lot of exposure,” she said. “I’d like to see more people talk about it.” To help raise the disease’s profile, Thompson and her family have been participating in the Scotiabank MS Walk for nine years as Team Rita. On average, the team brings in a few thousand dollars for the MS Society, but this year, they have a much higher goal. Aiming to hit $10,000, the team has already raised $7,000 after hosting a community pub night. Thompson is now hoping to see a large crowd at this year’s walk, which, in its 20th year in Canada, has a national fundraising target of $1.6 million. The event will be held  see page 13

Sunnyside Acres volunteers turn focus to Chantrell Park Volunteers who have worked since May 2006 to clear Sunnyside Acres Urban Forest of invasive plants are branching out. As the forest has been largely cleared of nuisance species and replanted with native trees and shrubs, focus is turning to Chant-

rell Park. “It’s a success story for the forest, for sure, and also for the community,” said Ron Meadley, president of Sunnyside Acres Heritage Society, of progress made in the forest. Chantrell Park is an ideal location to turn to as it is in close proximity

to the urban forest, connected by a natural-areas corridor, Meadley noted. In conjunction with the City of Surrey’s urban forestry and environmental programs, work on Chantrell Park will get underway with a May 7 event.

There will be approximately 200 trees and shrubs to plant, Meadley said. All ages are welcome at the rainor-shine habitat enhancement effort, where invasive plants will be removed, native species planted and litter cleared.

Those planning to attend should dress for the weather and bring gloves. Refreshments will be provided. The work gets underway at 10 a.m., near 139A Street and 22 Avenue. - Tracy Holmes

Slave stories told at exhibit Tales of life in slavery are central to a national exhibit showing in Surrey Museum through May 28. Passages to Freedom: Secrets of the Underground Railroad takes visitors back to the 1800s to learn about slavery, the secret escape route and the challenges those who made it to “the promised land” faced. Stories of former slaves and their descendants who found freedom and prosperity – as well as discrimination, racism and even violence – in Canada, are told through narratives, models, interactive components and recordings of spiritual songs. Museum visitors will discover clues to the secrets about fleeing to freedom, including signs, codes and symbols that were used along the underground railroad; learn about the messages in

spiritual songs and the importance of the stars in navigating to freedom; and explore inventive escape methods, such as the box used by Henry “Box” Brown to mail himself to freedom. Passages to Freedom was developed by the Welland Historical Museum in southern Ontario with the assistance of Heritage Canada, the Peterborough Centennial Museum, Guelph Museums and West Parry Sound Museum. The exhibit has already appeared in Nova Scotia, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. Surrey Museum is located at 17710 56A Ave. Admission for 2011 has been sponsored by the Friends of the Surrey Museum Society. For more information, call 604-592-6956 or visit heritage

Celebrating 60 years The Surrey RCMP is inviting the public to attend a special ceremony marking the detachment’s 60 years of service on Sunday, May 1 at the Surrey Museum Square.

The Surrey Museum is located at 17710 56A Ave. On May 1, 1951, the RCMP took over municipal policing services for the City of Surrey. Surrey RCMP detachment has grown from 18 members in 1951 to more than 600 today. • Also, don’t miss the upcoming RCMP exhibit at the Surrey Museum, on display May 20-23.

hen guests walk into Centennial Arena Saturday night, they’re not likely to recognize it for the ice rink that it is. Those attending Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation’s gala are expected to see an elegant ballroom lavishly embellished with lush flowers, decorated tables and a dance floor. Even the bathrooms are to be given a high-class makeover. And while the transformation may be easy on the eyes, it’s not quite so effortless for the people making it happen. The production of a ❝They’ve got 450-person event that it down to a requires 50 tons of food, supplies and equipment fine art.❞ brought onsite by five semiSiobhan Philips trailers may seem daunting volunteer to anyone. Throw in the fact that the fancy affair is hosted in an ice rink, and some could say you have a recipe for disaster. But organizers manage to pull it off, much to the surprise of Siobhan Philips during her first taste of the local gala. Philips remembers attending the event shortly after moving to the community from Ontario 2½ years ago. She had worked on a hospital gala in Kingston, and was used to such occasions being held in hotels and halls. Her initial skepticism was short-lived,

committee members, some of whom are foundation staff. Philips said the committee meets in November to discuss themes, but work doesn’t begin in earnest until about January, when they start soliciting businesses for auction items. While March and April are the busiest months for organizing, the actual set-up at Centennial Arena begins just days before the event. With more than 20 years history – this will be the 22nd year – the gala’s assembly follows a tried, tested and true routine. “They’ve got it down to a fine art,” Philips said. “It’s very well laid-out, very well orchestrated.” Philips said the April 30 event will have an aubergine-elegance theme, with black and purple decor creating an atmosphere of royalty and swank. The night is to be MCed by CBC’s Rick Cluff, and will include live music, a catered dinner, presentations and live and silent auctions with more than $100,000 in items, including one of the most popular, a dinner with former Canuck Trevor Linden.  see page 23

The technical aspects of the gala – from lights to sound to video – are monitored from this control room.

Gala guests can bid on VIP table  from page 22 “I’m shocked and heart-warmed and surprised at how supportive the community is to this event,” Philips said of the donations. A new feature added this year is an auction for the best table in the house, which is to be bigger and better decorated than the others, and located front-andcentre on the floor. The highest bidder will enjoy VIP treatment that includes a

personal attendant, special wine pairings and food, selection of the first song and gift bags. “That will be the first order of business before sitting down for dinner,” Philips said. Tickets for this year’s event sold out faster than ever before, she noted, with the last ones being picked up weeks ago. Despite a high demand for tickets, Philips said the number available has remained the same to

ensure an intimate experience. “I don’t know if we’d ever want to make it bigger than that.” Philips said the goal of the evening is to meet or exceed last year’s fundraising total of $140,000, with proceeds being directed to the funding of priority medical equipment for the hospital. “It’s our hospital, it’s local,” she said. “If we don’t support it, we’ll lose it.”

In the 1990s BC suffered the highest unemployment rate of all the Western provinces and ranked last in the country in private sector job creation forcing Surrey residents to leave the province to find jobs. Things sure have changed… Go to to find out more about this Surrey story.

REVERSAL OF STOPPING DIRECTION 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

Notification Signage Erected

April 18, 2011

Phase 2

Temporary All-Way Stop

May 2 - June 1, 2011

Phase 3

Removal of 17 Avenue Stop Signs

June 1, 2011

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

He said he doubts a new casino would be proposed outside of Vancouver at anywhere near the scale as the one now rejected just west of BC Place Stadium. The $500-million proposal was to include 150 gambling tables and two hotels. Tuesday’s defeat in Vancouver comes as a relief to Richmond’s

council, which feared a downtown casino on the Canada Line would suck gamblers away from River Rock and reduce the nearly $12-million annual share of revenue the municipality receives. Vancouver councillors cited various concerns, including problem gambling and money laundering, as well as expanded gambling being out-of-step with their vision for a green, livable city. Graydon previously said BCLC could also look at expanding existing casinos or community gaming centres to fully exploit that market if the Vancouver site was rejected.

Evergreen delays feared Jeff Nagel Black Press

Lekstrom said in an interview

Thursday he’s hopeful a deal can be reached with Metro mayors soon. “I’m an optimist here,” he said. “The public really wants the service.” He wouldn’t discuss what funding sources he favours – many the mayors have talked about would effectively tax motorists – but he said there are only a few that could reasonably work. TransLink spokesman Ken Hardie said the TransLink board can’t prepare a supplement without a source of extra money the mayors and the province can support. “Right now, one does not exist,” he said.

The long-promised Evergreen Line may remain on ice for much of this year because TransLink has so far not even begun to prepare a financial supplement to fund its share. So says Port Moody Mayor Joe Trasolini, who takes it as a bad sign that more delays are likely on a $1.4-billion SkyTrain extension that was supposed to be under construction by now. The only missing piece of the puzzle is TransLink’s $400-million contribution. Metro Vancouver mayors are in talks with the provincial government on possible new mechanisms to raise money, potentially including an annual vehicle levy or road pricing. Trasolini said Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom told mayors in a meeting this week the project will not proceed until TransLink’s share is delivered. But he said he’s hopeful because Lekstrom recommitted to an accord signed last year by predecessor Shirley Bond and former premier Gordon Campbell pledging to negotiate new sustainable funding sources for regional transportation. The problem, he said, is that talks are now focused on finding an over-arching solution on

emergency guide preparedness

Emergency Preparedness Week 2011 marks the 16th annual event. Here are some interesting facts to mark 16 years of getting better prepared for emergencies. 1. Roughly 5,000 earthquakes are recorded in Canada every year. 2. Canada gets more tornadoes than any other country except the U.S., averaging about 50 tornadoes per year. 3. The worldwide cost of natural disasters has skyrocketed from $2 billion in the 1980s, to $27 billion over the past decade. 4. Canada’s first billion dollar disaster, the Saguenay flood of 1996, triggered a surge of water, rocks, trees and mud that forced 12,000 residents to evacuate their homes. 5. Some hailstones are the size of peas while others can be as big as baseballs. 6. Approximately 85% of Canadians agree that having an emergency kit is important in ensuring their and their family’s safety, yet only four in ten have prepared or bought an emergency kit. 7. In 2009, Manitoba’s Red River recorded

its second highest spring flooding in nearly 100 years. Nearly 3,000 people were evacuated from their homes. 8. Ice, branches or power lines can continue to break and fall for several hours after the end of an ice storm. 9. The deadliest heat wave in Canadian history produced temperatures exceeding 44ºC in Manitoba and Ontario in 1936. Rail lines and bridge girders twisted, side- walks buckled, crops wilted and fruit baked on trees. 10. In 2007, the Prairies experienced 410 severe weather events including tornadoes, heavy rain, wind and hail, nearly double the yearly average of 221 events. 11. The coldest temperature reached in North America was –63ºC, recorded in 1947 in Snag, Yukon. 12. The largest landslide in Canada involved 1853 of material and created a 40m deep scar that covered the size

of 80 city blocks in 1894 at SaintAlban, Quebec. 13. Hurricanes are bigger and cause more widespread damage than tornadoes (a very large system can be up to 1,000 kilometres wide). 14. 85% of Canadians agree that having an emergency plan is important in ensuring their and their family’s safety, yet on only 40% have prepared one. Complete yours online at www. 15. One of the most destructive and disruptive storms in Canadian history was the 1998 ice storm in Eastern Canada causing hardship for 4 million people and costing $3 billion. Power outages lasted for up to 4 weeks. 16. The June 23, 2010 earthquake in Val-des-Bois, Quebec produced the strongest shaking ever experienced in Ottawa and was felt as far away as Kentucky in the United States.

Effluent habitat gains don’t mesh with salmon decline

Big Smoke not killing off Fraser sockeye: report


WE SERVIC E ALL MAK ES AND MOD New Clients ELS Welcome! • Air

Jeff Nagel Black Press

Despite a burgeoning Lower Mainland population and an ongoing development boom, researchers have found no evidence that localized pollution or habitat damage is a major factor in the decline of Fraser River sockeye salmon. In fact, they argue habitat along the lower Fraser and in the Strait of Georgia has improved over the past two decades, thanks to tightened industrial, development and discharge regulations. That’s the core finding of a technical study commissioned by the Cohen Inquiry into the sockeye decline and led by Dr. Mark Johannes of Golder and Associates. Researchers looked at population – which rose 150 per cent over the 1990 to 2010 study period – as well as impacts from farming, forestry, industry, sewage discharges, shipping traffic and river dredging and diking. The heavier human footprint on southwestern B.C. through urbanization and other actions has not translated into more pollution in the receiving waters, they found. “Contaminants in the Strait of Georgia show a general improvement over time, with decreases associated with effluent regulation and improved treatment in recent years,” the study report said, pointing to better treatment of sewage by Metro Vancouver before it’s released. Construction that disturbs fish habitat is also better regulated, it said, resulting in net habitat gains in the Fraser estuary due to the duty of developers to enhance or replace damaged areas. Juvenile sockeye swim through the lower river, its estuary and out into the Salish Sea before heading deeper into the Pacific Ocean. During that transition period, they’re sensitive to changes in water properties and levels of food, competitors and predators. Migrating sockeye historically faced “moderate to severe” harm from human activities, the study noted. “But these impacts have not been generally observed during the last two decades and importantly, these impacts have not been observed to coincide with the decline of Fraser River sockeye.” The authors noted that sockeye use the lower river only for a period of days while migrating. They caution their conclusions regarding sockeye don’t necessarily apply to other species in the river or offshore – particularly ones that spend more time in the area than sockeye. There’s still plenty of room for improvement on habitat protection and control of discharges, the report said. Victoria still dumps raw sewage in the ocean although it is planning an upgrade and Metro

Heavy industrialization on the banks of the lower Fraser is not being fingered as a probable cause of the river’s sockeye salmon decline. Vancouver is planning costly upgrades to bring two of its plants with primary treatment up to the secondary level. But the report warned climate change and diminishing space near the river and its tributaries is making it more challenging to achieve habitat gains that can compensate for losses. The study is one of a series of 12 technical reports being prepared by the commission. Much evidence to date suggests enough sockeye are hatching in the upriver spawning beds, growing into smolts and then migrating successfully down to the ocean. If sockeye aren’t vanishing in the lower river and the immediate marine waters, the search for a culprit will likely shift further offshore.

arts & entertainment …on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Longtime fixture Geoff Purcell to be remembered at this weekend’s sale

Potters pay tribute to ‘gifted’ club member Alex Browne


Arts Reporter

Contributed photo

Semiahmoo Potters Geoff Purcell and Joan Ashenhurst.

he Greek philosopher Heraclitus was quoted as saying “nothing endures but change.” His words seem highly appropriate for the Semiahmoo Potters Club, which holds its annual spring show and sale of work this weekend (Saturday, April 30, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sunday, May 1, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.) at Ocean Park Community Hall, 1577 128 St. The club, originally started by 11 keen potters, has endured some 17 years – but certainly not without change. For a number of years – after losing its Community Arts Council sponsored

space at the old White Rock Elementary – the club was without a regular home, and had to do with a shed-like space for turning, firing and glazing works. Latterly the club has been renting a small house on the property of professional potter Don Hutchinson – an arrangement in which members have reaped the additional benefit of his advice and mentorship. But with the steady growth of the club since then – it now stands at more than 30 members – it is inevitable the club will have to look for a larger space in the future for its daily operations and monthly workshops. Other change can be sad – and unexpected.

Under that heading comes the passing in February, after surgery and a brief hospitalization, of stalwart member and club ambassador Geoff Purcell. It’s inevitable the current exhibition will be partly a memorial for the popular retiree, who used his past experience in sales and marketing to make the club’s shows a continuing success. “Geoff was one of our long-term members,” said 10-year veteran Joan Yates. “He was the one who always organized our sales and he was incredibly gifted. Although it was a huge task he always enjoyed it and was enthusiastic about the sales.”  see page 34

Developing stage skills Young people with a passion to sing, dance and act are invited to learn from industry professionals at the two-week Musical Theatre Intensive summer program at Surrey Arts Centre. Led by well-known Vancouver performer, choreographer and director Peter Jorgensen (who established the program in partnership with the Arts Club Theatre Company in 2002) the intensive is designed not only to provide experience for young performers aged 12 to 16, but also to help them gain the skills, confidence and contacts necessary to continue their musical theatre education. The Surrey program, which this year runs July 4-15 (10 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday to Friday), has provided a springboard for graduates who are now working professionally or continuing studies at some of the best theatre schools across North America. Jorgensen said the classes are designed to develop effective triple-threat performers – strong dancers who sing a little and great actors with two left feet can be turned into actors, dancers and singers. “We don’t just teach the notes of the song and the steps of the dance,” Jorgensen said. “We give our students the skills to understand, interpret and communicate the story.” Applicants for the program must have any two of the following five qualifications: two years dance training; one year private voice

will learn audition techniques. They will also perform solo and as part of the ensemble in a concluding showcase for family and friends on the last day of the program. Spin-off benefits, organizers say, are gaining an insight into Vancouver’s musical

Other pieces, like that of Thomas Nelles of Surrey’s Sullivan Heights Secondary, requires a bit more explanation. Called Cultural Entropy, he says his all-digital work depicts a post-apocalyptic world, circa 2083. “Adam and Eve are the only people left on earth,” Nelles, a Grade 11 student, says of his complicated, thematic, multi-layered print. “They hope to gain more knowledge… so they can mend the world.” Emily Lee, also in Grade 11 at Sullivan, was the only student to have two paintings chosen for the show – both very different from one another. One, called The Wonder Years, is brightly coloured, with

Her other painting, Pieta, is a much darker, Michaelangelo-inspired work – a futuristic image of people gazing up at a monument of a woman cradling a whale – a creature that’s clearly extinct. The show is eclectic, not only in subject matter, but in media as well, with painting and drawing complemented with collage and digital work. There’s even an intricate piece carved into wood and then painted. “We’re proud of this one because I think we’ve pushed the envelope,” said Surrey art teacher Marc Pelech, one of the show’s organizers.

Senior boys rugby team undefeated in league play, but struggling against province’s elite

Mariners looking to get past B.C.’s top sides Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Through the first month of the senior boys rugby season, the Earl Marriott Mariners have had no trouble dispatching their Fraser Valley league foes. Where they’ve struggled, though, is when they hit the field for non-conference tilts against the créme de la créme of the B.C. high school rugby scene.

Spring fling Some of the region’s top teenage hockey players did their best to get noticed by Surrey Eagles coaches last weekend, at the junior hockey team’s annual Spring Prospects Camp. The two-day camp, held at South Surrey Arena, culminated Sunday afternoon with a raucous all-star game – which featured a number of big hits, and even a fight or two. Clockwise, from top left: Dayne Ellison and Ryan Skinner duke it out; Jed Martin is dumped near the boards by defenceman Marlon Sabo; Dean Allison and Kevin Quinn collide midice; and forward Brady Lawlor tries to keep his balance – and control of the puck – while moving around blue-liner Evan Diamantopolous.

The Mariners, ranked seventh in provincial AAA rankings, are 2-0 in league play, having beaten Abbotsford’s Robert Bateman Timberwolves as well as their crosstown rival Semiahmoo Totems, whom they shut out 28-0 in early April to snag their third straight Sandcastle Cup. But those results are tempered by losses to No. 2 Carson Graham and third-ranked Oak Bay, who beat EMS 46-0 last Thursday

at South Surrey Athletic Park. “I don’t know what it is, but we’re just having a problem against some of the province’s top teams. We’re a good team, but we just can’t quite get up to that real top level,” said Mariners head coach Adam Roberts. Roberts, who has coached at Earl Marriott for five years, said talent is not an issue with his club – which was ranked as high as sixth in province before the Oak Bay loss – but

rather, work ethic and confidence. “This is probably the most talented team we’ve ever had here – since I’ve been here, at least,” Roberts said. “But the guys have to realize that you need to put the work in to win. Talent gives you the chance to win, but hard work is actually what gets it done. “Most of our guys have won before –  see page 41

Good times in Boston A handful of Surrey and White Rock runners clocked impressive times at last week’s Boston Marathon – one of the world’s most prestigious races. Surrey’s Rob Barber, 51, was the first local to cross the finish line, clocking a time of three hours, four seconds – good for 52nd in his age division. Next across the line was Mark Jongedijk, in 3:12:52, followed by fellow Surrey runner Neil Yarmoshuk, 40. White Rock’s John Murphy, 70, finished 67th in the men’s 70-74 year old class, with a time of 4:49:48. Others to complete the 42.2-km race were: Marcus Slade (3:26:52), William McKinnon (3:30:11), Rick Fraser (3:38:09), Tanya Warkentin (3:40:42), Dave MacDonald (3:46:03), Derren Lench (3:46:28), David Greig (3:49:11), Angela Elemans (3:52:31), Janet Weber (3:53:58), Darlene Barber (4:00:12), Rick Horita (4:13:49) and Marilyn Payne (4:16:06). In total, 26,907 runners competed in the April 18 marathon.

Despite being just a fraction of the size of some of the province’s top teams, the Semiahmoo Masters Swim Club managed to finish third overall at masters provincial championships earlier this month in Kelowna. Semiahmoo, which has just 18 members, had 14 of them at the Okanagan meet, and finished only below second-place English Bay – which has 126 total members – and the provincial champion Okanagan Masters, who had 51 of a possibly 137 members competing. The Peninsula’s other masters swim club, the White Rock Wave, had just one member at provincials, Kristi Martin. Martin, 22, won four golds, two silvers and one bronze and also clocked a number of personal-best times. - Nick Greenizan

Flanker has ‘come out of nowhere’  from page 39 either as juniors here, or at provincials with Bayside (at the club level), so they just need to keep working hard and building that confidence again.” Though the Mariners are a veteran-laden side again this year with a dozen Grade 12s by Roberts’ count, it’s been a newcomer to the sport, senior flanker Matt Armstrong, who has most impressed his head coach so far this year. “He’s a kid that has really come out of nowhere. He’s in his first year playing, and maybe he doesn’t quite know what’s going on out there at all times, he doesn’t care,” Roberts said. “He just goes out there and runs, and just keeps moving forward.” Armstrong’s teammate on the back row, No. 8 Dan Lee, has also had a strong year, Roberts added. Elsewhere on the Peninsula, Southridge is listed in the honourable mention category of the province’s lastest AA rankings, while Semiahmoo and Elgin Park are still in a rebuilding mode, and remain unranked thus far this season. Neither Semi coach Mike McMartin nor Elgin coach Tom Myring could not be reached for comment.

Here in B.C. we often take our tap water for granted, but it is a finite resource that we should value

at a glance

and protect.

Q 25% of Canadians have no idea where the water that flows out of their taps comes from. Q Canadians use an average of 329 litres of water per day - twice the amount used by Europeans. However, the average Canadian thinks they use only 79 litres per day. Q Canadians admit to knowingly engaging in water wasting activities such as leaving the tap running while washing dishes (44%) and hosing down their driveways (19%). Q Canadians are more concerned with saving electricity than water: 29% of Canadians don’t know what they pay for their water, but only 10% don’t know what they pay for their electricity bill.

We need to value our drinking water



industry and agriculture, and the effects of climate change all place enormous pressure on our water supply.” Drinking Water Week, May 1st - 7th, is dedicated to creating awareness of the value of our water, our water systems, and the people who make it accessible and safe for us to drink. Many communities throughout B.C. are holding events to celebrate Drinking Water Week, including hosting tours of their local reservoirs and treatment plants, and we encourage you to take the time to visit them. Check your local newspaper to find out about events in your community, or visit www.drinkingwaterweek. org for activities and educational resources provided by the BC Water & Waste Association.

BC Water & Waste Association and others who keep your water safe and clean, ask you to value our water and celebrate Drinking Water Week 2011. Visit:

2381 King George Hwy., Surrey SHOWTIMES - April 29/11 - May 5/11

Tips for conserving water:

ANSWERS: 1; F. British Columbia residents use an average of 490 litres of water per day compared to the national average of 329 litres. 2; T. We use 65% of our water in the bathroom, 20% for laundry, 10% for drinking and kitchen needs, and 5% for cleaning. 3; F. While it is true that most wastewater in B.C. is treated before it is returned to its source, we should be careful not to put harmful substances down our drains or in our gardens. These substances can harm fish and other aquatic creatures (check with your municipality to find out how to properly dispose of harsh chemicals).

When you turn on your tap and clean, safe water comes out,do you ever stop to think: how does it get there? Who brings it you? Where does it end up when you’re finished with it? BC Water & Waste Association and the Province of British Columbia have officially proclaimed Drinking Water Week May 1st to 7th, 2011. We invite you to celebrate this exciting week by “getting to know your H2O” – including where it comes from, where it goes, and how you can protect and conserve it. Here in B.C., where we have an abundance of natural resources, we often take our tap water for granted. However, there is no such thing as ‘new water’ – the water that we use continually cycles through the environment, and is reused again and again. British Columbians personally use an average of 490 litres of water per day compared to the Canadian average of 329 litres per day. That is about double what Europeans use! Although it may not be apparent to all of us, the costs and energy required to deliver water to our taps, treat it to be safe and clean, and safeguard the environment by managing wastewater, add up to billions of dollars every year in Canada. Daisy Foster, CEO of the 4,400-member BC Water & Waste Association notes, “Increases in our population, the growth of

Athletes shine in Oregon Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

It was two days full of personal bests for six Ocean Athletics athletes – “a small but mighty little group,” said coach Lynn Kanuka – at the prestigious Oregon Relays last weekend. Competing at historic Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore. against some of the best high school and college track and field stars in the Pacific Northwest, the team was led by Jack Williams, whose impressive win in the 1,500-m was one of the meet’s highlights. In the high school boys race, Williams edged top Oregon high-schooler Matthew Melancom and fellow Peninsula runner, White Rock Christian Academy’s Sean Keane, finishing in three minutes, 59.83 seconds. Williams used a late kick over the last 250 metres to distance himself from the other two runners. Keane – who has a full-ride scholarship next year to the University of Kentucky – finished third, in a time of 4:02.2. Kanuka, Williams’ mother, described her son’s late push as “a fantastic kick… (he) literally buried the field in the last 250.” Williams’ sub-four-minute time was second on Ocean Athletics’ all-time list, behind only Luc Bruchet, who now runs at UBC. Jake Bruchet also had a strong weekend in Eugene, with a fifth-place finish in the 3,000-m and a seventh-place finish in the 1,500. His times in both races were personal

Jim Noel photo

Alison Williams (in red) was fourth in 800-m. bests. In a strong field, Peggy Noel surged over the last 300 metres of the high school girls’ 1,500-m race to finish fourth in a time of 4:44.25. Teammate Reta Dobie, a Grade 10 runner, finished the same race in 5:11.46 – her best time of the 2011 season. Alison Williams also scored a top-five finish in the high school portion of the meet, finishing fourth in the girls’ 800-m with a seasonbest time of 2:17.08. In field events, Ocean Athletics’ Ryan Sommer, an Elgin Park student, finished sixth in both hammer throw and shotput, but his most impressive performance, according to Kanuka, came in the discus, where Sommer threw a personal best distance of 48.56 m.
