Christian Heritage Party candidate chastises Conservative MP over ‘Canadian values’

‘Naive to think all cultures compatible’ Alex Browne Staff Reporter

Mike Schouten

The Christian Heritage Party of Canada has released an immigration policy calling for tighter eligibility controls for immigrants – particularly those coming from Muslim countries and cultures that have embraced radical Islamic beliefs. In an open letter to South SurreyWhite Rock-Cloverdale MP Russ Hiebert, released Wednesday, Mike

Schouten, CHP candidate in the riding, has called for a tougher government position on immigrants whose beliefs are inimical to the Canadian Constitution and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. But Hiebert responded Thursday that he believes that safeguards on human rights – including the rights and responsibilities of immigrants – are inherent in the Canadian system and do not require

further underlining. “We have religious freedom in Canada,” he told the Peace Arch News. “Everyone is free to practise the religion of their choice, but at the same time, regardless of their country of origin, every Canadian is expected to obey the laws of Canada – full stop.” In his earlier statement, Schouten said it is “naive to think that all cultures are compatible with Canadian values”

– quoting, as an example, a dictate from the most conservative school of the Sharia (Islamic religious code) that “those who renounce Islam be put to death by the faithful.” “It’s never just, never lawful in Canada for a group to abridge the rights and freedoms of any other Canadian, regardless of their current or former relationship to that group,” he said.  see page A4

White Rock gets earful

Barbs fly over trees Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

If White Rock councillors had any doubts as to whether their recent decision to support the removal and replacement of three trees on Royal Avenue had rubbed anyone the wrong way, those doubts were quickly erased during Monday night’s question period. Accusations that the Jan. 24 decision was made without proper consultation and was tainted by self-interest flew from the residents whose property abuts the trees in question.

TIDES at White Rock Beach

Victims ID’d Two men have been identified as the victims of Wednesday afternoon’s plane crash just east of Mission.

Langley resident Don Hubble, 60, the Cessna pilot, also died.

serve Delta, Surrey, White Rock and Langley adequately. While top officials at TransLink are well aware of the service inequities, the lack of sustained funding to expand the system makes it very hard to improve services south of the Fraser, except in tiny baby steps. While this is better than the alternative of doing nothing, it does little to encourage people to use transit, and as a result, the roads in Surrey and other South Fraser communities become more congested each year, as the population continues to grow. The whole issue of TransLink funding has been shoved onto the back burner due to the Liberal leadership race. However, just before he resigned last fall, Premier Gordon Campbell did agree to have the province take a good look at all possible sources of funding, including the carbon tax, with the goal of giving TransLink ongoing access to other sources of taxation. If his successor follows through on that pledge, and works with TransLink to come up with more ways of paying for meaningful transit expansion, Kwantlen students may find their U-Passes are a whole lot more useful, and far more South Fraser residents will be using the transit system in the future. That seems to be a worthwhile goal, both for the sake of the environment and livability, and as a practical alternative to simply building more roads and bridges. Frank Bucholtz writes Fridays for the Peace Arch News. He is the editor of the Langley Times.

news South of Fraser likely to benefit from shuffle

Better bus service by spring: TransLink Jeff Nagel Black Press

A shuffling of transit service that will make buses more frequent in some parts of Metro Vancouver and more scarce on other routes should start to become noticeable this spring. TransLink’s so-called service optimization initiative aims to wring more revenue out of the transit system with the same budget and number of service hours. “We’re not cutting back service, but we’re moving it around from where it’s not doing much good to where it will do more good,” spokesman Ken Hardie said. Boosting service on runs at times when

full buses drive by passengers waiting by the road and trimming back the schedule when buses run near empty should, TransLink projects, have the effect of improving performance overall, carrying more passengers and increasing fare revenue. It estimates an extra $10 to $15 million per year could be generated through the planned reshuffling of about 4.5 per cent of total service hours. It’s expected to be a fine-tuning of the schedule, with changes in bus frequency rather than elimination of entire routes. “The intent is to nip-and-tuck-out service hours that are really not being utilized and reallocate them to different parts of the system,” Hardie said.

It’s too early to say which runs and times stand to gain and which stand to be cut, he said. But areas like Surrey, Delta and Langley should be net beneficiaries. “There will be some pretty good lifts in service in the South of Fraser in April as a result of the service optimization,” Hardie predicted. TransLink acknowledges its service south of the river has not yet caught up to what’s required by the rapidly growing population, he said. He downplayed the impact on routes where service will be trimmed and passengers will wait longer for a bus. “We don’t want to raise general concern

that there will be widespread reductions in service,” he said. “Done appropriately, very few people will notice.” Hardie said a few of the changes actually started to happen in December with little fanfare. Changes that start in April will still be modest, Hardie said, with more reallocation of service to come in September and December. TransLink has set out principles to guide the changes. They call for the protection of service to transit-dependent riders who don’t own cars; maintaining runs that are strategic in connecting the network; and protecting growing markets that are experiencing substantial ridership increases.

Rot, asbestos found

New floors add ‘slight delay’ for museum Tracy Holmes & Hannah Sutherland Staff reporters

Rot and asbestos have delayed the completion of revitalization work at White Rock’s museum and archives. The end date of the project – initially anticipated in March – has been pushed back “a maximum of three weeks” after rotted floor joists and asbestos in floor tiles were discovered, according to the city’s manager. “It’s only been ❝You never delayed a couple know what of weeks – not any you’re going great length of to find.❞ time,” Peggy Clark said. Peggy Clark “You never city manager know what you’re going to find in terms of an older building when you start removing walls and things.” The cost of replacing floor joists and removing asbestos was approximately $65,000, money that is to come out of the project’s contingency budget. Because “there will be less contingency to do some other things that may have been possible if that hadn’t occurred,”

Renovations continue at White Rock Museum & Archives this week, after rotted floor joists and asbestos in the tiles were discovered. the museum and the project steering committee are looking at ways to save elsewhere, Clark said. The revitalization work, which will restore the historic 1913 train station’s original breezeway and create space to better

accommodate the museum’s collections, is “getting to an exciting stage,” Lynne Sinclair told council Monday, explaining the “slight” delay. A soft opening is anticipated for July 1, and one of the facility’s first

exhibits, Aliens Among Us, is due to open in August. Sinclair described the new Marine Drive building’s ability to accommodate such travelling exhibits as “a real boon.” “It will meet museum standards,”

she said. A contract for the project, expected to take six months to complete, was awarded to KDS Construction Ltd. in November. Total cost is estimated at $1.4 million.

Sworn to secrecy but not coming from city coffers, says mayor

Surrey mum on past U.S. presidents’ price tag Kevin Diakiw Black Press

The City of Surrey says the cost of bringing former U.S. presidents to speak here later this year will not be made public, as their rates vary depending on the events. Bill Clinton and George W. Bush – former Democrat and Republican presidents, respectively – are coming to Surrey this fall to speak at the city’s annual Surrey Regional Economic Summit. Coun. Linda Hepner said as part of the deal to get them here, their

rates can’t be disclosed publicly. However, Clinton typically charges in the neighbourhood of $300,000 for such engagements and Bush requires about $150,000 – a total of $450,000 for the day. Mayor Dianne Watts said that’s much more than what’s being charged for the Surrey event. Clinton has a friend in the Vancouver area who flies him up here periodically, which gave the city the opportunity to invite him here for much less. “Contractually, we cannot talk

about their fees, because I would expect, depending on the event, they would vary,” Watts said Tuesday. “But I will say that taxpayer dollars are not funding their speaking engagements at the summit. Those costs will be covered off by sponsors and ticket sales.” The city, Hepner said, is a minor sponsor of the event, contributing up to $20,000 to pay for printing and other sundry costs. As for police overtime costs to bolster security, Hepner said that would be

a federal matter. Hepner said as soon as the city announced the two former Ameri-

can presidents were coming, the phone started ringing. Companies were lining up to have their name attached to it by way of sponsorship. “They were calling us,” a surprised Hepner said. Watts said the main sponsors are mostly financial institutions and investment organizations. The summit will be held at the Sheraton Guildford Vancouver on Thursday, Oct. 20. Clinton and Bush are slated to make their presentations later in the day.

residents; and to direct staff to prepare a report for the committee’s Feb. 15 meeting on the bylaw and policy that includes statistics regarding permits, enforcement and infractions. They also supported a motion by Ferguson that staff also report on any recommendations and amendments they would suggest for improvements. “What I would really like to know is, how is the bylaw working,” Ferguson said. Karen Ellerbeck had no doubts it isn’t working. She predicted that if council continued to make decisions the same way they did in the Royal Avenue case, the definition of a nuclear family living on the city’s hillside would change – to include “two adults, 1.5 children and a lawyer.” “Your butts are going to be sued,” she said.

authority regarding tree management on city lands. “In reading the policy through many times, I just want to make sure we have done our due diligence, and to make sure we have authority,” Fathers said. Clark said the policy is based on bylaw, and the bylaw was “gone over in detail” by the city’s lawyer. “It is a legal document and we’ve done due diligence,” she said. Ferguson noted she has heard comments from staff about the policy, and asked if there have been lessons since it took effect that could improve the policy. Clark said “probably not” from the Royal Avenue situation. Council later gave unanimous support to recommendations from the city’s environment committee to make the tree bylaw city-wide; to be equitable to all

Pitcairn also told council he has offered, if the trees are removed, to plant California redwoods on the properties of those opposed to the removal. The redwoods grow to 370 feet tall, he noted. The issue was the first test of the city’s new tree policy and bylaw, which came into effect late last spring. In this case, council agreed to waive the stipulation that any tree-removal application cannot be approved if any resident within 25 metres opposes it on the basis of an impact to privacy, screening or shading of property.

One year later, torch still burns

I

t’s hard to fathom, somehow, that it was a year ago this weekend that the world arrived on our doorstep for the 2010 Winter Olympics. Time flies, indeed. And while the Games were a resounding success – immediately after the torch was extinguished, and admittedly without the benefit of a big-picture view, the 17-day celebration was already being billed as the most successful Olympiad in history. And for Canadians, specifically, the Games didn’t go too badly either, as our athletes won gold medals in numbers – record numbers – beginning with mogul skier Alex Bilodeau and ending with Sidney Crosby’s golden goal in men’s hockey. Such results sent Canadians – nearly 80 per cent of residents were estimated to have watched the game on TV – into a euphoric tizzy that lasted for days. The Olympic experience brought people together like nothing that had come before, nor will likely occur in the future. One German reporter, in fact, was reported to have asked a Canadian colleague during the Games: “Are Canadians always this happy?” So where are we, now 12 months removed? Well, the costs have come in, for one thing – estimated at $6.5-billion – and the Vancouver athletes’ village, which was turned into condominiums post-Olympics, failed to sell as quickly as some thought, with Vancouver taxpayers footing the interest payments – millions of dollars – in the interim. And without dismissing those factors out of hand – never a good idea, when that much money is being discussed – the fact remains that the Games have left a legacy that transcends dollars and cents. We still remember Jon Montgomery’s march through the streets of Whistler, still recognize the names and faces of Vancouver’s Olympic champions when they appear on television or in public – and really, when was the last time we could do that? (Quick: in which sport did Duff Gibson win gold at the Winter Games in Italy, just five years ago? Stumped? He was first in skeleton.) In short, we still care. And judging by the plethora of events planned to mark the one-year anniversary of the Games – including an official re-lighting of the Olympic cauldron on Saturday afternoon – it’s a feeling we aren’t too keen to give up. Are we always this happy? No, but perhaps we should be. Maybe that, in and of itself, is the true legacy – the lesson – of these costly Games.

yes 71% no 29% 106 responding critically in recent days has been the mass signups targeting certain ethnic groups – specifically Surrey’s South Asian community. But for me, this is a non-starter as a scandal, at least as far as the new party members and recruiters are concerned. If any individuals are smart enough to join a political party simply to have a say in who will govern, I say all power to them. Literally. Any condemnation should be directed to those of us who have an opinion on who will best protect our interests, yet do nothing to influence the outcome. Regardless of this opinion, the issue has resulted in a lot of infighting and accusations within party circles. This latter inner-party conflict is not exclusive to the BC Liberals, noticeable now especially as the New Democrats also select a new leader. But if you’re wondering why the media focus on the Liberals, I refer again to the fact that only one party’s victor is destined to lead the province, thanks to our somewhat-antiquated voting system. Sure, we had an opportunity to vote for the ruling party, but the power is in the premier’s office – as evidenced in outgoing BC Liberal leader Gordon Campbell’s autocratic run since 2001. Reality is, the premier holds the cards; it’s the rest of us jokers who will be shuffled. Silver lining: come 2013, it will be our turn to play. Only then will the tribe truly have spoken.

Allow smoking or ban outright Editor: I dislike noise pollution. It is detrimental to my peace of mind and general well-being. I wonder how people would react if they were allowed by buy noisemakers – like motorbikes, chainsaws, leaf blowers, etc. – only to find that after they took them out of the store they were not allowed to use them. Sounds like a scam to me. However, that is exactly what happens to people who use tobacco products. They buy these approved products, pay the taxes and then are forbidden to use them. It seems ethical that if this product is legal to buy, then it is legal to use. If one-quarter or one-eighth of the population buy these sanctioned products, there should be an equal amount of designated outdoor space at parks and beaches for their use. Governments should be more moral and either ban them outright or allow limited use. Joan A. Skelly, White Rock

Parking lot to be used Editor: Re: Lots of ways to spend our money, Feb. 4 letters. Thank you for bringing this “perception” to my attention. What may look like a waste to the writer is in fact an early step to facilitate future expansion of Peace Arch Hospital, specifically the expansion of the emergency department. I believe this is exciting news for the entire community. It’s important to understand that the parking lot in question does not belong to Fraser Health, as stated in the letter. It belongs to the Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation, an independent, board-governed organization that works in partnership with Fraser Health. Over the years, the foundation has purchased property close to the hospital, thinking that as the community grows the hospital will need to grow too. Purchasing land in close proximity to the hospital is now proving to be a most valuable investment for the foundation. The details of the hospital expansion are currently being mapped out in a master site plan for the Peace Arch Hospital campus. The plan, which engages a full spectrum of stakeholders, will be completed this spring/summer. The master site plan will provide a clear planning and operational vision for expanding and improving health services at Peace Arch Hospital, including the expansion of emergency services, within the health authority’s region-wide network of services. Having cleared space across the street from the hospital will expedite the delivery of priority initiatives such as improved emergency services. These are exciting and defining

days. I look forward to sharing more, as information becomes available. Jackie Smith, Peace Arch Hospital & Community Health Foundation Q The new hospital parking lot sits empty. The hospital workers use 16A Avenue – off 154 Street – as their personal parking lot. They start lining up on both sides of 16A early in the morning and the afternoon shift repeats the process. There is little regard for the residents or any visitors who seldom can find available parking. It would be a welcome sight to see the hospital parking lot full and give our street back to the residents. B. McMillan, Surrey

Gang mentality on our roads Editor: Who has the right of way – the runners or the cars? Imagine if three to four times a week you were driving in your car, and suddenly you had a long line of five to six gang members walking towards you, unyielding to your right of way as a moving vehicle. They stare you down, daring you to be the first to move, as they are

going to lay claim to the entire roadway; it is theirs and you must drive on to the other side of the road in order to make way for them. They travel in packs and take over the streets of South Surrey/White Rock most Monday and Wednesday nights, plus Saturday mornings. This would be unacceptable. People would be up in arms, the police would be called in and we would quickly have our streets back. Well, we do have this problem, and I encounter it regularly. However, these “gang” members are dressed as marathon trainers, and they are not on the RCMP wanted posters but are instead respected members of our community – our doctors, teachers, business owners and parents. Yet, for some reason, they feel that because they are “getting fit,” they have the right to take over the road ways – 18 Avenue being of particular concern for me – and to hold priority over the cars. There have been too many times when I have had to come to a complete stop because these runners, heading towards me, have refused to separate form and instead play a game of chicken. They know I will not hit them, so instead they keep running, and I must move to the opposite side of the road so that they can continue to keep pace with each other.

I support staying fit, but I do not support ignorance and the blatant display of arrogance that these runners seem to have when it comes to who has the right of way. The roads are dangerous as it is. Please don’t make them any more deadly in your desire to show the world who is superior. Eventually the cars will win – by accident and with tragic consequences. Carolyn Barone, Surrey

A royal welcome An open letter to White Rock council. I was wondering if it were possible for our city council to consider inviting the royal couple, Prince William and Kate, to visit White Rock during their royal tour in July. I had thought the Royal Hudson could bring them out. This would most certainly enhance the possibility of getting an Amtrak stop in White Rock. A visit to the Peace Arch could be in order to celebrate 200 years of peace between Canada and the U.S. This is just a suggestion from a resident in White Rock who is a very loyal subject of our queen.

Reports of dog attacks far outnumber raccoon attacks, writes Dee Walmsley, noting people are the biggest problem.

Real intruders don’t wear masks Editor: Re: Raccoon city looming, Jan. 26 letters. I have lived in South Surrey for 25 years and in that time there have been less than a dozen media reported bites from raccoons. However, dogsincanada.com – under dog bites – reports most victims of dogs are children, almost always bitten in the face by the family pet, and 28 fatalities were identified from dog-bite injuries, 1990-2007. The Center for Disease Control in Atlanta states there are about 4.5 million people bitten by dogs each year in the U.S. One-fifth of those require medical attention, and more than 30,000 require reconstructive surgery. Should we ban all dogs from society? We have a rat problem which would be much worse without the raccoon and coyotes intervention. It’s called self-preservation – nature taking care of itself. Don’t get me wrong. Raccoons are wild animals. They have been known to attack pets and the odd person, just not nearly as often as dogs biting people, dogs and cats. When they do encounter scared and paranoid humans, they suffer greatly. They are caught in leghold traps, often chewing off the entangled leg to be free; they are stoned to death, shot, run over, burned

alive and endure far too many atrocities by humans to mention. Each year, wildlife shelters take in hundreds of orphaned kits, mostly due to human interference. We are the intruders. Each year human encroachment increases and the animals are expected to adapt. Some – like the bear, cougar and red fox – no longer exist in urban areas; we destroyed their habitat. We can co-exist with our remaining wildlife. It just takes a little education on our part. Keep bird feeding stations clean, only put out what the birds will eat in one day. Don’t leave pet food or garbage outside. Screen off areas around and under sheds, and your house to prevent entry during denning season. Cut back tree branches that may provide roof entry.

Struggling with your Businesses targeted Ocean Park fights back

Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Persistent crime targeting Ocean Park businesses has created problems for owners. “We have, over the years, been quite concerned,” said Sandy Smith, owner of Cotton ‘n’ Crayon and president of the community’s business association. “It’s been a bit of a conundrum on who’s going to handle it, basically. It’s very hard to address.” Problems in the last 18 months have ranged from vandalism and graffiti to break-ins. Poor lighting and a lack of security have been cited as factors. And while a crime lull in recent months had merchants breathing somewhat easier, a spree last month has renewed concerns, Smith said. “It almost seems like everybody who hasn’t got bars or further deterrents, they’re picking us off one by one,” she said. At least three businesses were hit Jan. 22, including one clothing store where

stock not stolen had to be destroyed because of the possibility smashed glass had become embedded in it. South Surrey RCMP Staff Sgt. Scott Campbell described the break-ins as “unsophisticated,” and likely the work of culprits looking to feed an addiction. For the most part, cost of damage exceeded the value of what was taken, Campbell said. “Sometimes these guys steal a bag of chips or a pop… absolutely senseless.” Campbell noted targeted enforcement led to the arrest of about four chronic offenders in South Surrey last week. However, it has not been determined those arrested were responsible for the Jan. 22 break-ins. Smith said police have been active with residents and businesses owners in developing strategies to improve security. “Some people listen, some people don’t,” Smith said. “The community policing are doing as much as they possibly can, considering.”

White Rock city staff opposed changes

Last call later for second bar Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Patrons of the Sandpiper Pub will have an extra half-hour on weekends and holidays to enjoy the atmosphere, following council support of an application to extend the Marine Drive bar’s liquor licence. Council Monday voted 4-2 in favour of the half-hour extension, with Mayor Catherine Ferguson and Coun. Doug McLean opposed. Coun. Al Campbell was not present for the vote. The request by Sandpiper owners came in the wake of council’s 4-3 vote in December that resulted in a similar extension for the Ocean Beach Hotel. Both requests

were granted despite staff recommendations against the changes. According to a staff report on the Sandpiper request, extending the liquor licence would also extend noise issues, as well as put additional demand on already limited policing, bylaws and parking resources. A number of area residents also voiced opposition to the extension, said Paul Stanton, the city’s director of development services. But Coun. Grant Meyer said it wouldn’t be fair to deny the Sandpiper application given that the Ocean Beach application was supported. “To be consistent and to be fair, they should both have the

20% OFF

extra half-hour,” he said. Couns. Helen Fathers, MaryWade Anderson and Lynne Sinclair agreed. In voicing opposition, McLean said the request points to the larger issue of economic revitalization in the city and the question of how to draw more support to waterfront businesses. “I think this is probably an indicator of a greater problem… an issue of non-sufficient demand,” McLean said. Meyer noted the Sandpiper and Ocean Beach are White Rock’s only liquor-primary businesses. “This will be the second and last liquor-primary extension in the city,” he said.

Curling club’s liquor request approved White Rock council has given unanimous approval to increasing the new Peace Arch Curling Club’s liquor licence. With the amendment, the club will have licensed capacity for 133 people, an increase of approximately a third. The old club was licensed for 105 people. In recommending council approve the increase, director of development services Paul Stanton noted it is less than could have been requested for the larger, two-storey structure nearing completion at 14600 North Bluff Rd., adjacent to Centennial Pavilion. Club officials have the option to request a further increase in the future, he added. The club’s ground level – with amenities including change rooms, washrooms, kitchen and viewing areas – will remain unlicensed. Stanton described the change as a “minor increase,” and said it

is not anticipated to impact the community, as there is a “significant buffer” between the club and area residences. The closest

home is 160 metres away, he said, and, the facility is built to confine noise within the building. “Noise isn’t going to

be an issue,” Stanton said. The increase must be approved by the Liquor Licensing Branch. - Tracy Holmes

TRAVEL & CRUISES

SIMPLE SECURITY B y George Bell, Advantage B ell Trave l I’m sure most of you have been reading stories recently concerning security at the airports in Canada and the USA. There are stories about lengthy time delays, being embarrassed by having to show prostheses, or even having to deal with medical equipment either embedded in your body or placed in your handbags. This whole process can be very annoying but is, in our society today, part of travel. If you are going to fly, just accept it. It is not going to end any time soon. You can, however, make these hassles less frustrating by following some simple rules; rules that can be found on the American TSA website at www.tsa.gov/travelers. Yes, I know this is an American website but they are the ones who devise the hassles and we follow along. Here are the simple steps you should follow to reduce your frustration. First, arrive at the airport in plenty of time so you don’t need to worry about catching your flight. I always take material to read so if I get through security quickly, I sit down at my gate and read. I catch up on magazines that way. Second, if the security line is long and/or slow, amuse yourself by watching the people you are surrounded by. There is always someone or something to enjoy. Don’t forget to watch the security staff, as well. Generally they are very patient with us, the un-trustworthy. I do get a kick out of watching the very cultures we are trying to protect ourselves from, as they decide if they will allow us to proceed. Third, once you arrive at the conveyor belt type table, you will be asked yet again to show your boarding pass. Do so with a smile and answer the questions about aerosols and liquids you are carrying with you. I’m sure you will only have

those little bottles of the correct size in little plastic zip-top bags of the correct size. You can find those sizes on the website indicated above. Be sure to remove your laptop from its bag and place it in a plastic tray by itself. Remove your jacket and put it in a separate tray. Camera equipment does not normally need to be removed from its case. Do remove anything that is metal from your pockets and place

them with your jacket. I usually have to be reminded to unclip my cell phone and add it to my jacket tray. Fourth, now stand behind the line before the metal detector and await your turn. Usually you will be delayed as the person “x-raying� the trays is concerned about something and is waiting for the missing supervisor to return from somewhere to look at it as well. As a rule I do not have any problem passing through the metal detector and go directly to the table to await my trays. Many people however have to undergo the wand treatment. Don’t worry about it. You’ll look just as untrustworthy as everyone else having to stand there with arms outstretched. Some may be selected to go through the new body scanning equipment or suffer the pat-down. It is your choice as to which to suffer. I’d probably prefer to not step into the scanner and just may enjoy the pat-down. Fifth is the easy step. Empty your trays, fill your pockets and head for the gate. Don’t forget anything. That’s it. See? It’s not that bad. I do have to admit that I much preferred the “old days�, though. Back then I was trusted and justifiably so. Today I’m not and that bothers me. Have a great flight folks and do give us a call to book your next vacation or business trip – 604-535-2587.

midst the blare of traffic and passing of pedestrians, Neptune is focused. The black Lab/golden retriever cross navigates a safe path down the sidewalk, taking care to walk in a straight line before sitting at the curb and awaiting instructions from the blindfolded volunteer clutching the harness on Neptune’s back. Upon hearing the command “forward,” he is off again at a steady pace, his tail wagging in the morning air. After successfully leading the volunteer around the back parking lot of Semiahmoo Shopping Centre this week, guide dog mobility instructor Jaime Arnup makes sure to give Neptune the praise he has earned. And while he excitedly laps up the scratches and pats as any pooch would, he isn’t just any dog. The two-year-old is on his last day of training with B.C. Guide Dog Services, and is to be placed with his visually impaired owner the following morning. He has been qualified as a guide following five months of advanced training held across the Lower Mainland. Arnup said South Surrey’s uptown area is ideal for training beginner dogs because of its quiet residential areas and easy-tonavigate grid layout. Dogs in training start off in such calm environments before working their way up to more chaotic settings, the ultimate being Downtown Vancouver. B.C. Guide Dog Services breeds its own dogs, which stay with volunteers during their first seven to eight weeks of life. They then spend the next eight weeks with puppy-raising families – volunteers who socialize the dogs and teach them basic obedience.

Doug Shanks photos

“We take that obedience and use it to teach them to guide,” Arnup said. Dogs are placed in boarding homes during advanced training, when dogs learn to walk in a straight line until the environment or direction changes. The dogs are taught to identify obstructions by practising on artificial obstacle courses at the service’s Ladner training centre. They also learn to read foot positions, hand signals and verbal instructions, such as the “find” command, which tells them to locate objects and places such as doors, benches, elevator buttons, escalators or stairs. “They learn through repetition,” Arnup said. “Dogs are creatures of habit.”

The club donated $1,950 it collected through fundraisers such as its annual book sale (coming up Feb. 27 to March 7) and Lobsterfest (scheduled for May) to the literacy program, which is free to participating families and provides children with a new book every month until they turn five years old. It was founded in 1996 by Dolly Parton, and has since been embraced by the Rotary Club of White Rock, Sources and the local Kiwanis club.

Mall tear-down begins Jennifer Lang Black Press

A large excavator began tearing down the Cloverdale Mall Tuesday, its mighty jaws crunching into wooden beams and boards, sending clouds of sawdust and bits of debris into the air. It started with the entrance way of the landmark mall’s former anchor store, Safeway. The crisp, dusty scent of freshly milled lumber hung in the air. “It’s a little sad to see it go, isn’t it?” remarked one woman who stopped to take a closer look. “It’s a piece of Cloverdale history.” The Safeway – the woman noted she still misses the grocery store and its staff – closed in the mid-2000s, precipitating the mall’s inevitable decline. “When they took the liquor store out, that’s what killed it,” said another onlooker, who was surprised to learn the downtown Cloverdale building was finally coming down. The leaking, aging mall’s halfdozen remaining tenants – ranging from an insurance company to a theatre troupe – were out at the end of October. The final two tenants – a small Sikh temple

Healthy beautiful smiles for life begin with early preventive care.

The walls of the former Safeway are torn down as crews begin demolishing the exterior of the old Cloverdale Mall Tuesday. and a soup kitchen run by local churches – left at the end of January. Demolition crews have been removing drywall, asbestos and other materials from the interior for several weeks, trucking materials to recycling facilities. Utilities will also be removing infrastructure as part of the demolition process. The mall is being torn down to make way for a new development called Cloverdale West Village, a mix of commercial and residen-

tial units. Construction on the project’s first phase is expected to get underway later this year. Phase 1 will consist of a single wood-frame, five-storey building with 22,000 square feet of commercial space, an underground parking lot and 100 residential units on the southwest portion of the site. The first phase will include a new home for the Cloverdale Legion that’s about the same size as the current branch at 10,000 square feet.

Stripes: The Mystery Circus

Under the Mango Tree

This delightful spectacle combines physical theatre, cabaret and traditional theatre in a play about a woman who wants to run away and join the circus. Through song, memories and sheer determination, our heroine reveals eight out-of-this-world circus acts in an audition that humorously and touchingly goes awry. Writer/performer Sarah Hayward creates a memorable character who charms the audience with her spunk and spirit.

For many young men, going to a new country is a journey full of hope, promise, and opportunity. But what about the children left behind? Performer/playwright Veenesh Dubois weaves a semi-autobiographical tale about a young girl whose father emigrates to Canada. Letters are their only connection as she waits to joins him. The show has played to packed houses and standing ovations, as the heartfelt themes of love, loss and immigration are explored in a story that touches us all.

They cannot comprehend it being right in the downtown,” Hunt said. “At this point in time, my proposal would be we put it in industrial areas that surround the downtown, possibly just off the South Fraser Perimeter Road.” Energy can be piped in effectively from that distance, he said. Creating a facility there also keeps garbage trucks from clogging roads in City Centre, which has been a concern of many of Hunt’s colleagues. Hunt believes provincial approval of incinerators won’t occur until a new premier is chosen. Mayor Dianne Watts said it’s much too early to have conversations about where such a facility might – or might not – go. She points out there are a host of existing and future technologies which could turn out to be a better fit for the North Surrey District Energy area.

news Initiative will bring in revenue

TransLink may add billboards Jeff Nagel Black Press

TransLink may install digital billboards on some of its properties to pull in more cash. The idea is under consideration by the TransLink board, which was recently briefed on the potential. Spokesman Ken Hardie said the transportation authority will look at what locations might be suitable for billboards, particularly electronic ones. “We owe it to everybody to have a good look at it,” he said. “Every dollar we raise that way is a dollar we don’t have to raise from taxes and fares.” TransLink already raises at least $9 million a year through advertising but aims to pull in even more. LED billboards have brought big-screen video-style outdoor advertising to select spots in Vancouver

and the North Shore. The City of Surrey has also approved digital billboards for the approaches to some of its bridges. Hardie stressed the concept is in its early stages and had no details on how much revenue could be earned or where TransLink might install billboards. “We have many, many locations where there’s high traffic, with many people going by.” But TransLink could conceivably look at park-and-ride lots, exteriors of SkyTrain stations and even places where overhead rapid transit guideways cross major roads. Canada Line operators previously sought to install digital billboards outside rapid transit stations in Richmond, but the idea was rejected in 2009 by council, with the mayor calling the displays hazardous to vehicle traffic.

Weatherby renovations begin Renovations to accommodate a 24-bed acute mental-health unit in Peace Arch Hospital’s Weatherby Pavilion are underway. The $3.6-million facility, dubbed Oceanside, is targeted at seniors living with serious, complex and persistent mental illness and chronic conditions who require more intensive and specialized assessment and treatment. At the launch of renovations last month, Surrey-White Rock MLA Gordon Hogg described the initiative as an important investment that will benefit seniors and their families close to home. Catherine Ferguson Monday, White Rock Mayor White Rock mayor Catherine Ferguson told council the facility, located on the pavilion’s third floor, will be a “positive addition” to the community. She lauded its respectful design. “Everyone has their own room and own bathroom, so they get to keep their dignity,” Ferguson said. The provincial government is investing $1 million in Oceanside. It is a component of Fraser Health’s Riverview Redevelopment Project, which is transferring responsibility for the assessment, treatment and support of individuals with serious and persistent

I was a great disappointment to my father. I fell into a bad group in my teens, and became addicted to nearly every kind of illicit drug.

What remedy do I have? None. If the “alter ego trust” has been properly prepared and all your father’s assets correctly transfered to the trust, you have no legal recourse against your father’s assets or against your siblings.

mental illness to B.C.’s regional health authorities. “Research shows that individuals living with serious and persistent mental illness respond better to care in smaller, community settings rather than in large institutions,” said Lois Dixon, executive director of mental health and addiction services for Fraser Health. “Developing these highly specialized programs will allow Fraser Health to offer its communities a broader range of mental health services.” The program will provide short-term assessment and treatment for older mental-health clients who may have psychosis, mood disorders, complex dementia and other health issues. It will initially accommodate patients transferring from Riverview in Coquitlam, however, as beds become available, it will support eligible patients from across the Fraser Health region. Oceanside, projected to open in September, will have about 37 staff to work with patients, whose stays will range from two weeks to three months. – Tracy Holmes

lifestyles Cognitive psychologist looks for tweaks, nuances to improve player’s experience

Government research aids video-game design Where video game players focus when they look at gaming screens and other physical and emotional cues are among nuances helping Simon Fraser University’s Veronica Zammitto – a cognitive psychologist - to improve game design. The Argentinian-born Zammitto, a graduate student in SFU Surrey’s School for Interactive Arts and Technology (SIAT), works part time for video game giant Electronic Arts. She’s an example of a growing demand by the industry to reap the benefits of talent beyond artists and technology experts. Zammitto uses eye-tracking technology to measure where people look when they play to gather information that helps game designers decide where to place game elements – details that keep the play flowing. She also studies emotions and measures levels of stress or excitement, factors that can influence game appeal or turn-off. “My role is to study game players using a variety of techniques, including eye-tracking and analyzing signals from facial muscle activity, and measuring the electrical conductivity of the skin (measurements that correlate with emotional arousal) as well as heart rate,” she explains. An avid gamer, Zammitto’s

“Having the opportunity to work with someone like Veronica and the skill set that she can bring opens up so many design opportunities to make our games even better, from front end menu

connections between academia and industry. She moved to Canada after meeting SFU professor Jim Bizzochi’s SIAT team at the Digital Games Research Association annual conference in Vancouver. She entered SFU’s master’s program in 2006 and has since completed it, and is currently a doctoral student. Her interest in video games grew during her studies at the University of Belgrano in Buenos Aries. “One of my favorites was StarCraft, which I continue playing today in its newer version StarCraft 2,” she says. As video games become more sophisticated there are nuances only visible to psychologists, she says. “These games are usually so well built but from a psychological perspective there may be small tweaks that can make them that much more enjoyable and easier to play,” says Zammitto. “Understanding how and why people respond the way they do gives cognitive psychologists a certain advantage.” A consummate diver in her spare time, Zammitto hopes to land a job in industry and is currently working with SFU colleagues to develop new software that will streamline her research. – Black Press

Freer speech for city committees Wording in terms of reference for select city committees is outdated when it comes to restrictions placed on members speaking to media, White Rock Mayor Catherine Ferguson has said. Ferguson raised the issue Monday, during a meeting of the city’s governance and legislation committee in which policies for the various committees’ terms were endorsed. Ferguson pointed specifically to a general term that states “members of the committee are not permitted to speak directly with the media on behalf of the committee, without prior approval from the city manager.” A motion to remove the clause was carried, following word from city manager Peggy Clark it was not new. “Then it’s long overdue to be removed,” Ferguson said. In supporting Ferguson’s motion, Coun. Helen Fathers suggested the phrase be removed from all the committees’ terms of reference, a point Clark said would be addressed by removing it from the general terms. Committee members supported the motion unanimously. - Tracy Holmes

arts & entertainment â&#x20AC;Śon the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Film Festival avoids dry documentaries Alex Browne Arts Reporter

Doug Shanks photo

Board members Charles Marxer, Phil de Rosa, Jack McLachlan, Herb Spencer, Eileen Spencer and Leslie Payne.

Documentaries today arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite the same as those dry-as-dust preachy 16-mm films that some of us remember from Social Studies classes. And a good thing, too, say board members of the White Rock Social Justice Film Festival, newly incorporated as an independent society under the presidency of Glenn Miles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Michael Moore effect,â&#x20AC;? said vice-president Charles Marxer, referring to the impact the confrontational filmmaker has had on the idiom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no accident weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re starting off (this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festival) with one of his,â&#x20AC;? added secretary Eileen Spencer.

The festival â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which has wisely used its winter Friday night film series as a way of building interest â&#x20AC;&#x201C; returns for a seventh edition Feb. 18-19 at First United Church, 15385 Semiahmoo Ave. And the audience seems to be growing steadily, indicating there are people on the Peninsula who welcome a little spinach with the pablum served by the mass media. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our average audience is around 100 people,â&#x20AC;? said board member Phil DesRosiers. As in past years, the festival will present films designed to challenge existing beliefs, promote debate and encourage positive involvement in social justice issues in the community, with speakers facilitating discussion after each film. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think our vision is to present anything

as an alternative right way â&#x20AC;&#x201C; our objective is to raise and put a spotlight on issues and allow an interchange of ideas,â&#x20AC;? said Leslie Payne, another board member. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to get depressed by issues â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they want to know how they can get involved and make a difference,â&#x20AC;? said Spencer. Live music is also an adjunct to the festival. Festival founder Jack McLachlan said this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guest will be 19-year-old ragtime piano prodigy Max Keenlyside, from Charlottetown N.B., who will play before the films at the Friday night opening and Saturday night closing. The festival kicks off Friday (Feb. 18) at 7 p.m. with Mooreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Capitalism: A Love Story. For a full film lineup and showtimes, visit www.whiterocksocialjusticefilmfestival.ca

Delivering on a dream Alex Browne

he title of her debut CD â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Kid Dream â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the dream-like ambience of the artwork says it all. Jessica Stuart has always held on to her childhood dream of pursuing music â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and since she moved to Toronto from B.C. in 2007 it has become her full-time occupation and obsession, rewarded by growing national recognition for her music, rooted in the improvisational feel of jazz and progressive folk. But while she embraces being part of Torontoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vibrant music, arts and culture scene â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and says she looks to promote it by becoming involved in more and more collaborative projects â&#x20AC;&#x201C; she still thinks fondly of B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more laid back ethos. So fondly, in fact, that she makes frequent returns here with her group, The Jessica Stuart Few â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including this monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s B.C. leg of her current Canadian concert tour, which starts Thursday, Feb. 17 at Crescent Beachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Beecher Street Cafe (7-10:30 p.m.) and continues Friday, Feb. 18 at Langleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jazzy Jones Roadhouse (7:30-10:30 p.m.). Talking on the phone from her home in Toronto, the singer-songwriter and guitarist said she looks forward to the two local gigs as a continuation of the positive experience she had playing Beecher Street Cafe last year. And thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sense of uninhibited possibility about her music, reinforced by the video for Kid Dream, created by Stuart and Toronto animator-director Evan deRushie,

Making connections through art Arts Reporter

What better theme can there be, around Valentine’s Day, than love creating love? That’s the name of spiritual painter Kaayla Tomlyn’s website (lovecreatinglove. com) and the theme of this month’s show of her work – and two special workshops – at White Rock’s Organic Connections Café (15622 Marine Dr.). The busy month at the East Beach raw food café – which has also been fulfilling its mandate as a focal point for community building through the arts – is tantamount to a mini-festival. Getting involved with the workshops, Tomlyn says in her invitation, is a chance to “awaken your creative gifts more fully in this time of love.” On Valentine’s Day, Monday, Feb. 14, Tomlyn will conduct a day-long (10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) workshop for individual painters of all ages and skills, from novice to accomplished. Guided by Tomlyn, they will be invited to play, have fun and use their own intuitive processes to create a painting they can take home with them. Workshop cost ($125) includes a lunch of soup and salad and all materials used (participants should bring clothes they don’t mind getting splattered with paint). The second workshop, on Feb. 19 (8:30 to 10:30 a.m.) is all about creating a crossgenerational “love legacy’ with a child, grandchild, young

We want to help each other, recognize all the challenges, but provide love and support.” “What’s evolved is an amazing loving energy here,” said Tomlyn. “You can feel the joy of the people in the kitchen.” Picking up on energy is central to her work which – more than painting – involves using her intuitive gifts and sense of spiritual connection to teach, heal and help others. $ But she is also fascinated by the Model RE4H3BEY healing power of art.

And instead of looking at a painting, they’re finding the passion in a painting.”

Her principal occupation for some years was working on

What is Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy? Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (also known as natural hormone replacement therapy) is the treatment of depleted and imbalanced hormone levels in both women and men through the use of bio-identical hormones (as opposed to synthetic hormones). For women this includes the treatment of symptoms relating to menopause, perimenopause (the stage of gradually falling and fluctuating hormone levels, which often begins in the early 40s) or post-menopause. Bio-identical hormones have a molecular structure that is exactly the same as that of hormones produced by our bodies, which makes them biologically identical. Because bio-identical hormones are identical to those produced by the human body they offer important therapeutic advantages as well as relief from the symptoms of hormonal imbalance. For women these symptoms can include: hot flashes, night sweats, depression, moodiness, weight gain, acne, fatigue, insomnia, loss

Zokol inducted into Canadian Golf Hall Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Richard Zokol

‘Disco Dick’ is headed for the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame. Longtime PGA Tour golfer Richard Zokol, a South Surrey resident, was named Tuesday as one of two new inductees in the hall, joining longtime Royal Canadian Golf Association

executive director Stephen Ross in the 2011 class. “It’s all still a little overwhelming, and hasn’t sunk in yet. You don’t really plan for these things, they just kind of happen,” Zokol said Wednesday. “I remember last year there was a bit of an outcry in the golf community when I wasn’t inducted, so the thought

(of being inducted) had crossed my mind from time to time, but still, you never expect it. It’s quite an honour.” Zokol, 52, spent 22 years in the PGA, winning twice – the 1992 Greater Milwaukee Open and the ’92 Deposit Guarantee Classic. “I’d have to say, those two wins on the PGA in 1992 were really the pinnacle

of my career,” he said. He also won the 1984 Utah Open, and the 2001 Samsung Canadian PGA Championship, which was a Nationwide Tour event at the time. He also earned notoriety – and the ‘Disco Dick’ nickname – when on tour in the early ‘80s, he wore  see page A30

Brad McGowan in hunt for scoring title

Race for the top Nick Greenizan

Sports Reporter

ith just two weekends left in the B.C. Hockey League regular season, Surrey Eagles forward Brad McGowan finds himself in the thick of the league scoring race, just one point shy of Salmon Arm’s Mike Hammond. It’s a position McGowan, 20, has found himself in before. Two years ago, as a member of the Richmond Sockeyes, the Langley native lost the scoring lead on the last day of the season, but his disappointment was quickly soothed, as his team went on to win a national junior ‘B’ title. Needless to say, he wouldn’t mind the same thing happening again. “I’d like to get it, sure, but I won’t be devastated if I don’t. It’d just be a nice feather in my cap,” he said. “Later on in life, it’d be nice to look back and be able to say that you were the leading scorer, but we’ve had such a good year as a team, and I’d trade it for a (long) playoff run, definitely.” With six games left on the schedule – beginning tonight (Friday) when the Eagles take on the Powell River Kings at Hap Parker Arena – McGowan has 32 goals and 82 points; Hammond sits first with 83 points, and Cowichan Valley’s Jordan Grant trails just two points back, at 80.

Surrey Eagles forward Brad McGowan sits just one point back in the B.C. Hockey League’s scoring race. He had 82 points this season. And if it’s possible to put up more than a point-per-game quietly, McGowan has somehow managed to do it. He’s been named BCHL player-of-the-week just once - for the week of Oct. 18-25 – after tallying nine points in three games, but has otherwise just gone about his business quietly. “He’s done it consistently. He

hasn’t had that 18-point weekend where he gets named player-ofthe-week. He just quietly puts up one or two points a game and goes about his business,” said Eagles head coach Matt Erhart. “That seems to be his MO – he just comes to work every night. He’s been consistent all year, and it’s pretty rare where he doesn’t get

a point.” McGowan, who had 46 points last year, in his rookie season, is quick to credit the team – and the coaches – for his success. “I was more of a third- (or) fourth-line guy last year and didn’t get the power-play time I’ve got this year,” he said. “I didn’t really quite expect to

be putting up this many points, but it’s been a little bit of luck, and the coach has thrown my out there on the ice a lot, and I’ve just been taking advantage of the opportunity.” He’s also found renewed chemistry with 19-year-old Richard Vanderhoek, a fellow  see page A32

‘There’s just so many highlights’  from page A29 headphones and a walkman on the course, as a way to calm his nerves while he played. Zokol, who grew up playing out of Vancouver’s Marine Drive Golf Club – which he first joined in 1971 and where he is now an honourary member – had success at the amateur and college levels, too. As an amateur, he was a member of Canada’s 1980 World Amateur team, and in 1981 won the Canadian Men’s Amateur Championships. That same year, Zokol captained Brigham Young University to an NCAA team championship. Though he lists the PGA wins as highlights, he says many more

memorable moments come into sharper focus as the years go by. “There’s just so many highlights, but when you start to look back, you think of the long practice hours, and the desire, but also the sacrifices people made along the way – my parents, and for the last 25 years, my wife,” he said. Zokol will be inducted during the week of the RBC Canadian Open, which will be held in June at Vancouver’s Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club. Fellow Canadian golfer Mike Weir, who will play at the Open, is scheduled to speak at Zokol’s ceremony. These days, Zokol runs Sagebrush Golf Club, near Merritt, which he co-designed.

 from page A29 Langley Minor Hockey alum. With the one-year age difference, the pair played together every second year as they came up through minor hockey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was peewee where we kind of realized we played well together,â&#x20AC;? said Vanderhoek, who has played on the same line as McGowan all season, save for a brief spell when he left the Eagles for the Vancouver Giants, only to return soon after. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always know where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be out there, and he knows where I am. We trust each other out there.â&#x20AC;? The third spot on the Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; top line has featured a revolving cast of characters, as Jeff Vanderlugt, Dale Hunt, and Daniel Gentzler have all been slotted alongside the pair. This weekend, Semiahmoo Minor Hockey product Michael Stenerson is expected to get a shot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a couple guys shuffle through there on the other side, but it seems like whoever we put there scores goals, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been

nice,â&#x20AC;? Erhart said. That productivity, the coach said, is largely a result of McGowan, who came into the season expecting to take on a much larger role in the offence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over the summer, we challenged him to show up in great shape. He was coming into the year as a 20-year-old, uncommitted schoolwise, so he knew itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be a big year for him,â&#x20AC;? Erhart said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You could tell that he put a lot of work in. He came into training camp with a lot of confidence, and I think he put up four points in our first intrasquad game.â&#x20AC;? And for what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth, Erhart said he believes McGowan when the forward insists the scoring title isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forefront in his mind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Somebody would be lying if they said it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be nice if they won the scoring title, but I know he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put himself ahead of the team in order to do it,â&#x20AC;? Erhart said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Scoring titles are a oneyear recognition, but winning lasts a lifetime. Brad wants to win.â&#x20AC;?

The Semiahmoo Selects Scorpions improved their U11 cup record to 2-0 last weekend, after a convincing 7-0 shutout victory over the Ladner Kaos. The Scorpions built up a 4-0 lead in the first half and cruised to the seven-goal victory. Haley Ribiero had a pair of goals, as did Bonnie Whitford, with Nicola Smith, Cassidy Sader and Alexa Porpaczy rounded out the scoring. Lily Van Nen and Smith shared goaltending duties for Semi. The backline was anchored by Raichel Feenan, Katherine Toy and Leah Evans, while Tyra Anderson was excellent at midfield. Before the Ladner victory, Semi defeated Sur-Del Xtreme 2-1, with goals from Smith and Ribiero.

He returned to Kwantlen in 2007, and will coach the final six games of the current season before stepping down, admitting to falling short of his goal of winning a provincial championship. “Kwantlen always has and always will hold a special place in my heart,” he said. “Although I wasn’t able to accomplish what I wanted on the court, the friendships I have made on and off the

…Who says you can’t have it all? With new homes in a fabulous Vancouver location, Kits 360 offers more than affordable views…it offers a lifestyle many aspire to have.f

Kits 360 – new homes in a coveted Vancouver neighbourhood

Kits fits: a lifestyle you’ll love

‘‘

We’ve always said when it comes to real estate, it’s about the location and this one is a winner across the board.”

TRICIA LESLIE

Branch of BC housing

GVHBA’S 17TH ANNUAL

Brunch at Café Zen or Sophie’s Cosmic Café. Shopping at an eclectic yet hip mix of boutiques, shops and businesses. Walking or running along Kits Beach, nearby parks, or the world-famous Seawall, all complemented with panoramic ocean and mountain views. Purchasing flowers, fresh fish and a steaming coffee at Granville Island, and checking out who’s performing next at the Arts Club Theatre. Heading to the always-popular Naam restaurant or Nevermind or Hell’s Kitchen for supper before meeting friends at The Cellar Jazz Club or perhaps, the Frog and Firkin or Jeremiah’s Neighbourhood Pub. “No more excuses for a lazy afternoon,” says Rennie Marketing director of marketing Linda Chu, referring to the lifestyle in the coveted Vancouver community of Kitsilano. “There’s just too many options when you live here.” Chu is excited about a new-home project Rennie is involved with in Kits, one of the most sought-after Vancouver neighbourhoods for homebuyers. Entitled Kits 360, the Intergulf Developments project is a boutique collection of high-end residences situated at the top of a hill at Burrard and Seventh, offering sweeping views of downtown, False Creek and beyond. It is also steps away from West Fourth restaurants and shops, Kits Beach, Granville Island, Fifth Avenue Cinemas and South Granville shopping, Chu notes, which “makes living at Kits 360 simply the best.” “Immediate access to transit and Burrard bike lanes means Kits 360 is all about living green and living time-efficient,” says Chu. When complete, Kits 360 will feature more than 250

new homes that are ideal for first-time buyers, couples, downsizers and small families. Fresh, contemporary architecture will feature multi-stepped rooflines to afford more views from more units; the U-shaped concrete design is lighter and airier than others in the area. Large green roofs and an extra large community rooftop deck – with amazing city and ocean views, year-round – are offered to homeowners, among other outdoor spaces, and a relaxing reflection pond runs the entire length of the lush central courtyard. “We’ve always said when it comes to real estate, it’s about the location and this one is a winner across the board,” Chu says. Homes start from $349,900, “an incredible value for this location.” Previews will start in early March and sales start March 26. Visit www.kits360.com for details.

Spectrum Optometry

Serving the community since 1999

Spectrum Optometry provides a full range of services to ensure optimum eye health for the whole family. Customer service is their number one goal. From full eye health examinations, including testing for standard ocular diseases like glaucoma, cataracts and diabetes to contact lens fitting and Dr. Stephanie Gautier eyeglass dispensing, Spectrum Optometry takes care of it all. Dr. Michelle Elliott Meet Dr. Michelle Elliott. She is an awardwinning researcher and University of Waterloo graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry, plus a Doctor of Optometry degree. A believer in “giving back,” she partners with the Rotary Club of White Rock and embarks on regular eye care missions to Honduras. Dr. Stephanie Gautier joined Spectrum Optometry in 2009 and, together with Dr. Elliott, provides the utmost in eye care on the Peninsula. Dr. Gautier obtained her Bachelor of Science in Microbiology and Immunology at the University of British Columbia. She completed her Doctor of Optometry at the University of Waterloo, and like Dr. Elliott, has earned many awards. She also volunteers her time and makes regular trips to provide eye care for the local First Nations community. Both doctors agree there is much more to maintaining eye health than a regular exam every few years. Without proper sight, they say day-to-day living can be needlessly difficult. For those who deal with “low vision,” which occurs when vision is reduced and cannot be improved either surgically or with your best pair of glasses, Spectrum Optometry is pleased to introduce their new Low Vision clinic. Aimed at helping patients “make the most of the vision they have so they can lead more independent lives,” this specialty service helps patients who are experiencing loss of sharpness or acuity, which also may include distortion, loss of contrast, light sensitivity or loss of field of sight. If you or your loved one would benefit from any of Spectrum Optometry’s services, please call 604-536-2050 to arrange an appointment. New patients are always welcome. Spectrum Optometry — Bringing vision to life. For more information, visit www.spectrumoptometry.com.

“Bringing Vision to Life” is more than just providing you with a full eye health examination. Our doctors listen and understand your visual needs, then develop a personal solution to ensure you have the best vision possible. Spectrum Optometry offers a full service eye care clinic for the whole family. Having a regular eye health examination is the best way of ensuring you have the best possible vision. Our qualified opticians are available to assist you with all your eyeglass and contactlens questions. Call today and arrange your eye health examination. At Spectrum Optometry children’s eye health examinations are covered by the Medical Service Plan for patients 18 years and younger.

The Brewing Experience A professional atmosphere, good products and good service is what you’ll find at The Brewing Experience.

Just Released!

It’s more than just a place to make your favourite wine. “You can make your own cider, coolers, port, sherry, sparkling or ice wine — pretty much the whole gambit,” says John, owner of The Brewing Experience.

Chile - TREK Barb and John

(Malbec Syrah Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot)

If beer is more your style, The Brewing Experience has over 70 varieties. From lagers to specialty ales and stout, you’re sure to find something that will make your friends ask, “You made this yourself?” The knowledgeable staff will help you narrow down the right taste for you. Whether you like your wine dry or sweet, fruity or with a more robust flavour, the staff at The Brewing Experience can suggest the perfect variety that’s sure to please your palate.

EM

ade By You

CHILI TREK (Malbec Syrah Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot) Thoughts of Chile take you to the awe inspiring Andes and the culture that surrounds them. Trek embodies the Chilean lifestyle of living within the mountains with a down to earth philosophy in a multitude of different microclimates and geographies. Opening with dark roasted notes of coffee and chocolate with a hint of blackberries, this wine balances the best of four classic varietals. Fermentation on Cabernet Merlot Genuwine Winery Dried Grape Skins and French oak completes this monumental taste experience.

Like any creative process, it’s important to be patient to get the best results. “We can ferment it in as little as four weeks, but the real taste is developed by how long you leave it,” says John. “The more full-bodied the wines, particularly the reds, the longer we suggest people leave them in the bottle before they enjoy them.” First time customers are provided with wine bottles at no cost. Call The Brewing Experience at 604-535-7200 and they’ll be more than happy to answer any questions you may have. Even better, stop by the Brewing Experience and tour the facilities.

Call us for the NEW non-invasive way to reduce fat.

New Beauty Institute

New Beauty Institute now proudly offers CoolSculpting by ZELTIQTM – the cool way to lose fat. CoolSculpting is a new, non-invasive procedure that uses a revolutionary cooling technology to reduce areas of unwanted fat gently and effectively. The result? Noticeable, natural-looking fat reduction in treated areas within two months. Continued improvement for up to four months. As seen on Dr. Oz, Rachelle Ray, Oprah, The Doctors & Good Morning America

FREE CONSULTATION

$150.00 Value

With its combination of cutting-edge technology and a dedicated, knowledgeable staff, Institute New Beauty is a popular destination on the Peninsula for men and women wanting to look and feel their abosolute best. Focusing on all aspects of body and skin care, including weight loss and nutrition as well as revolutionary anti-aging treatments you won’t find anywhere else, the centre has built a strong reputation for producing amazing results in a comfortable and caring atmosphere. Caree Ludwar Dr. Bernice Brits, the centre’s Medical Director provides Botox and fillers regularly, adding to the centre’s amazing range of anti-aging services and procedures. With bathing suit season just around the corner, slimming techniques that help men and women win the battle of the bulge are more popular than ever. Adding to the centre’s amazing range of services and procedures, including the Pearl procedure, Condessa and the Proellixe, owner Caree Ludwar and the New Beauty team are thrilled to introduce CoolSculpting – an innovative, non invasive procedure that has quickly become one of the most sought-after inch-loss treatments in North America. “This is phenomenal, absolutely amazing,” says Caree who experienced signficiant results after just one treatment with CoolSculpting back in September. “I just couldn’t seem to get rid of the fold underneath by bra – it was excercise resistant.” After learning of CoolSculpting while watching an episode of Dr. Oz, she decided to give it a try. “I couldn’t believe it… it really worked! I had to replace all of my bras because I went down a couple sizes. I was also finally happy with the way I looked when I wore a bikini and I wouldn’t normally wear one.” As of January, New Beauty became the third destination in the province to offer CoolSculpting, a procedure ideal for men and women carrying an extra 10 to 15 lbs. Developed and marketed by Zeltiq Aesthetics, CoolSculpting selectively targets localized fat deposits — abdominal fat, love handles, back fat, muffin-tops and “C-section bulge” above the scar — and reduces them by chilling them to just above freezing. It’s done gradually and without causing any harm to the surrounding tissues. “Unlike liposuction, which can attain simmilar results, CoolSculpting is completley non-invasive so the patient can return to normal activities immediately,” says Caree also noting patients may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after their treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. “The body is still flushing fat cells, and will continue doing so for up to four months.” For the month of Febuary, New Beauty is waiving the consultation and assessment fee for Cool Sculpting (usual charge is $150). Caree and the New Beauty team will be working late evenings to accomodate the high demand of appointments. On March 9 from 2 to 4 p.m., the public is invited to attend an Open House at New Beauty, which will feature an information session on CoolSculpting with the manufacturer and a live demonstration. For more information, call 604-541-8750 or visit www.new-beauty.ca

Rona Installation Service • It’s Simple • It’s Reliable • It’s Worry-Free Doing it right. Satisfaction Guaranteed. Doi

Getting ready for Spring, need a new look for your home or thinking of doing a major renovation? If so, be sure to stop in at South Surrey’s Rona Home Centre on King George Boulevard. One of the leading suppliers of ECO-friendly products, Rona offers over 40,000 square feet King Lum of home improvement merchandise, including building supplies, garden equipment, patio furniture, as well as an exceptional selection of fresh, contemporary indoor furnishings and decor accessories. In addition to an unbeatable product selection, providing customers with a “feel-good” shopping experience is one of this “pet-friendly” store’s highest priorities, says manager King Lum. “Our continued goal is to differentiate ourselves through our commitment to customer service,” said Lum. “One aspect that sets this store apart from the other stores is that we believe in sourcing special products to address our customer’s needs. We’re also proud to welcome leashed pets — something our customers really seem to enjoy. These are just of few of the examples of the unique services that complement our commitment to customer service and our ‘yes, we can’ attitude.” Awarded 2009 “Store of the Year” by the Building Supply Association of British Columbia, Rona’s newly renovated, bright, clean atmosphere offers excellent way-finding signage and conveniently located merchandise. It recently launched a “Kitchen Boutique,” aimed at helping customers design their dream kitchens on time and on budget. “Some people may not be aware that we provide professional installation services on anything purchased at our store,” said Lum. “All of our tradespeople and certified installers are highly qualified so our customers can feel confident that they will be pleased with the results.” Whether your next project is a new shed, a new garage — or even an entire new house, make your local Rona your ‘one-stop shop’ for all your home improvement needs.

Moving Up? Moving Down? Relocating? Renovating?

World Serve Thrift For more than 35 years, World Serve Ministries, formerly Living Bibles International Canada, has been working hard to help others across the globe. Today, the non profit organization has refined its focus to serve the most vulnerable and needy, both physically and spiritually, with an emphasis on China and Cuba.

Why not donate your gently used home furnishings?

Last January, WorldServe opened a thrift store in Melody Jobse White Rock on Johnston Road (inside the Hillcrest Mall), offering a large selection of gently-used apparel, shoes, household items and furniture – Proceeds from the sale of merchandise support WorldServe’s mission. Melody, manager of the new thrift store, says there is a constant flow of exciting new items that are donated daily. “Each day hundreds of new items pass through our door, so be sure to come back often.” At the heart of WorldServe Thrift is its team of hard-working volunteers who keep the store up and running. “We wouldn’t be able to do much of anything without them – we have quite the team, but are always looking for more.” Volunteers include people from all walks of life, including high school students, young adults, retirees and seniors. “If you have a heart for missions or just love to be around fun people while providing a service to your community, why not consider volunteering at WorldServe Thrift? There are many opportunities and we could use a multitude of talents and interests,” says Melody. In addition to supporting issues on a global level, WorldServe Thrift supports the local community. “If we receive too much of something or receive an item of quality that we wouldn’t normally sell, we’ll pass it on to groups in need such as the Surrey Urban Mission or Women on the Downtown Eastside as well as various other organizations in need. We also try to be good stewards by recycling as much as possible.”

THRIFT Serving Locally - Impacting Globally

Anyone who is downsizing their home and wanting to donate gently-used home furnishings can drop off items at World Serve Thrift between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Store shopping hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday – Saturdays. No appliances please. If you are unsure that your items are unacceptable, please call the store in advance. For more information on volunteer opportunities, please contact Melody at 778-294-6800.

Open Mon. to Sat. 9 am - 5 pm • Donations Accepted 9 am - 4 pm at rear loading dock

FREE OIL CHANGE Factory trained technicians. We only use genuine Volkswagen parts.

“Even though we are a growing dealership, we haven’t changed the way we do business since day one,” Peter added. “We treat our customers with individual care and respect. They don’t have to take a number in order to be served at Gold Key.”

Sticking to a regular maintenance schedule is key to avoiding breakdowns, which is where repair costs build up says Peter. When you think about it, it makes perfect sense to have key services done at minimal cost than to be hit with a big bill later.

“Our customers have told us shopping at Deals is kind of like going on a little treasure hunt,” said manager Michelle Young. “People are excited to learn we can do special orders and are often able to source a specific item they haven’t been able to find anywhere else.” In the spring, Deals becomes a popular hot spot for those with a green thumb. Mid-March, Young and her staff dedicate an entire section to garden tools, decorative embellishments, ornaments, wind chimes and accessories sure to delight flower and plant gardeners alike. Art lovers of all ages will be pleasantly surprised to see Deals has expanded its craft section. In addition to its popular stretched canvasses, scrap-booking accessories and kids craft items, Deals now carries a variety of patterned and plain card stock and stamping supplies. Young is also pleased to offer a “huge” textile event this month, which includes unbeatable deals on luxury bath and hand towels, dish towels and licensed Canucks towel sets. “We also carry a great selection of seasonal and holiday items so, right now, we have a ton of Valentine’s Day decor and accessories and, next week, we will be showcasing our fun St. Patrick’s Day accessories.” With new stock arriving daily, Young says Deals staff are always on-hand to help customers find a unique present or special contents for a one-of-a-kind gift basket. Young says she is grateful for having a long-time following of Peninsula shoppers. “Our customers are very loyal. They have stayed with us throughout our many locations and, after all this time, feel like good friends.”

Beauty & the Best

Friday, February 11, 2011 Peace Arch News

Beauty and the Best Picture a place where your stress magically disappears the moment you walk through the door — an oasis in the middle of a busy day where you can just relax. Beauty and the Best is that kind of place. Let the “dream team” restore your balance: mind, body and soul. “Our passion for what we do shows Christine, Gwen & Tedi in our work,” says Gwen Graves, owner of Beauty and the Best. “We’re European-trained estheticians with many years of experience between us. We are professional, yet relate to our customers in a personal way. We care about our clients.” Pat, one of Gwen’s regular customers, stops in for a pedicure every six weeks. “Gwen does a wonderful job but what makes her special is the extra care and attention that she gives every customer who walks through the door.” Pat says she likes Beauty and the Best because it’s close to where she lives and she appreciates the effort Gwen has made to create a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere. Once you’ve experienced the ambience of Beauty and the Best for yourself, you’re sure to return. Services include microdermabrasion with live cell replacement facials and advanced skin care using Swiss made Cellcosmet or Yonka products imported from France. Beauty and the Best is pleased to offer Botox and Cosmetic Fillers performed by Dr. Rose, a local White Rock physician. Christine specializes in permanent make-up application with over 20 years experience and you can talk to Tedi about the newest and most natural eyelash extension technology available. If a luxurious massage is your wish or you just want to brighten your day with a manicure or pedicure, Beauty and the Best would be happy to do that, too. “Beauty and the Best is my sanctuary that I share with my customers,” says Gwen. “I love what I do and I put my mind, heart and many years of experience into my work.” Relaxing music, soothing tea, expert estheticians and that personal touch is what you’ll find at Beauty and the Best.

Eleganté Shoes Ladies, it’s time to book your spring pedicure! According to Scott Robb at Elegante Shoes, located inside the Semiahmoo Shopping Centre, spring and summer are going to be all about the peek-a-boo toe. Get a jump on the 2011 fashion season and stop in at Elegante Shoes to view all the new styles. “Muted pastels, rivets, metal and flower Scott Robb detailing is where it’s at,” says Robb. “I buy with my clientele in mind. I know what they like and I keep my eye on what’s current in the fashion world.” In addition to women’s styles, Elegante offers a tasteful selection of men’s footwear that is sure to put a spring in any guy’s step. And while Robb — who offers one of the largest selections of designer shoes on the Peninsula — keeps his finger on the pulse of fashion footwear, he says he makes sure that the styles he features are more classic than kitschy. “We’re all about the latest footwear fashion, but we don’t often use the word “trendy” to describe our offerings,” he said. “We tend to lean more toward the classical styles.” Whether you are going to the office or have a special occasion, Elegante staff know how to help you find just the right thing. Perhaps you recognize the brands Stuart Weitzman and Amalfi from the pages of Vogue? Elegante carries both, along with favourites from VanEli, Franco Sarto, Clarks and Ecco. While sky-high heels are still “de rigueur” with the younger set, Elegante has every heel height from casual walking to platforms. The choice is up to you! When you shop at Elegante, you know you’re getting the finest selection of quality, imported fashion footwear for the whole family. Now in its 26th year, family-owned Elegante shoes has been voted the Peninsula’s number one choice in fine footwear many times over. New styles are arriving daily. Come in and see the fine staff at Elegante and let them help you find the perfect footwear to go with your spring wardrobe. Elegante — a ‘shoe-in’ for all your family’s footwear needs!

South Point Dental Centre Thanks to today’s technology — and dentists, like Dr. Ed Wong at South Point Dental Centre, who believe in keeping up with the latest advancements — visiting the dentist can be a worry-free experience that is both quick and comfortable! “I have to say the patients we see from the South Surrey-White Rock area have a very high Dr. Edmund Wong dental I.Q.,” says Dr. Wong. “They’ve done their research and they know what they want. The team here at South Point Dental can definitely help them achieve the smile they’re looking for.” Along with standard dental procedures like teeth cleaning, fillings and crowns, Dr. Wong provides the following progressive treatments:

i s CLEAR LY y ou r b est ch o ice for a b etter Smile! C al l f o r a c o m p l i m e n t a r y c o n s u l t a ti o n .

• Mini Implants for denture wearers – Implants are secured to the jawbone to keep loose dentures from slipping. • Invisalign teeth straightening – Correct minor imperfections without brackets and wires. Invisalign is an easy-to-use, removable teethstraightening method. Nobody will even know you’re wearing it! • Lasers for cold sores – Zap sores at the tingling stage before they turn into painful blisters. A few minutes in the office will save you days of discomfort. • Cosmetic Dentistry – Dr. Wong uses Lumineers to permanently whiten or reshape teeth. As thin as a contact lens, Lumineers can take your smile from zero to confident in a few short visits. • Teeth Whitening – It’s important to have your teeth cleaned before you whiten. Stop in at South Point Dental for a 90-minute whitening session or have Dr. Wong make a custom tray for you to wear at home. • Sedation Options – South Point Dental Centre offers anxiety-free choices that can be as simple as taking a pill. Your dental procedure will be over before you know it.

SOUTH POINT DENTAL CENTRE • Cosmetic Dentistry • Sedation Dentistry • Zoom Whitening • Botox Cosmetic • Evening & Weekend Appointments

“We strive to make a positive impact on people’s lives,” says Dr. Wong. “From the first phone call to the completed procedure, we do everything we can to satisfy your dental needs.” South Point Dental is located next to Save On Foods at South Point Exchange. Evening and weekend appointments available. Call today at 604-535-8880. Don’t forget to ask about their senior’s discount.

Sullivan Optometry Have your eyes been feeling tired and heavy or do you tend to get headaches when reading or working on your computer? If the answer is “yes,” it might be time for a new pair of glasses. Whether it’s your first pair or simply time for a stronger prescription, a new set of contacts, or a fresh new look, the knowledgeable folks at Sullivan Optometry are committed to helping you find the perfect solution to all of your eye health Dr. Marc Moison and sight needs. With a heavy focus on continuing education and the most technologically advanced equipment available, Sullivan Optometry is proud to be at the forefront of the eye care industry offering full-scope medical eye care and optical services, including a unique one-day-a-week dry eye clinic. “I noticed there were a lot of people in the community suffering with this condition. It is extremely uncomfortable and can cause a lot of frustration,” said owner Dr. Marc Moison. Providing 50- to 60-minute comprehensive eye exams, Moison and his wife and business partner, Dr. Anisa Nurani, say the majority of people are unaware of how important routine eye exams are to overall health and wellbeing. “Regular check-ups are vital to early detection of diseases or deteriorating sight,” said Moison. “For adults 64 and under, we recommend an eye exam once every one to two years. For school age children and those 65 and older, we recommend coming in annually. Infants should have their eyes tested at six months of age. However, no matter what your age, if you begin to experience any unusual symptoms, you should see an optometrist right away.” While patients are “wowed” by the clinic’s great service and state-of-theart technology, they are equally impressed with its boutique-style retail area offering all the well-known designer brands. However, those who like to stand out from the crowd won’t want to miss “Sullivan’s Vault,” a special retail section dedicated to “one-of-a-kind,” frames made from precious materials, including gold, diamonds and ivory. “I import them direct from suppliers from around the world and once someone buys a certain model, I discontinue it, so they will never have to run into anyone with the same pair.” Sullivan Optometry — superior vision care, superior service.

Surrey SureSlim Wellness Clinic Surrey SureSlim Wellness Clinic opened in October 2004. Since then, it has helped scores of Peninsula residents correct their metabolism and lose weight safely, rapidly and permanently — without the use of invasive treatments, excessive exercise, packaged foods, pills, shakes or injections. George & Helen The program — which is individually tailored based on a person’s blood test results, as well as their food preferences, lifestyle and any prescription medications — includes a customized SureSlim eating plan and knowledgeable one-on-one counselling with a trained SureSlim Wellness Consultant. “At SureSlim, our clients have experienced dramatic weight loss by taking the simple steps necessary to balance their metabolism,” said owner Helen Janos. “Unfortunately, we can’t choose our metabolism, but we can choose how we get it to work,” she adds. “Our goal is to teach our clients how to feed their body using normal food to balance certain hormones and correct their metabolism.” “With the SureSlim program, we don’t believe in supplements or unrealistic products or procedures that our bodies could eventually become resistant to. The program is easy to follow because there is no counting of calories or points.” Despite having a thyroid condition, Debbie, a Surrey SureSlim client who started the program weighing 430 pounds, recently lost over 250 pounds without feeling hungry or experiencing cravings. As she continues to lose weight, Debbie says she is “thrilled” with her results and how SureSlim has changed her life. “She is the perfect example of how, using the SureSlim program designed around your body’s specific needs, a person is able to lose weight safely and quickly in a healthy manner,” said Helen. “With the SureSlim program, we will help you correct your metabolism by teaching you how to eat food effectively in order to convert it into fuel and give your body energy.” Helen, who initially discovered the SureSlim program as a client, was so impressed with how easily she lost 40 pounds (with a diagnosed under-active thyroid and no medication), she persuaded her husband, George, to open Surrey SureSlim so she could help others achieve the same incredible success. “Whatever your weight, the SureSlim program can help you lose a little or a lot,” said Helen. “I love seeing how clients lives are changed. It is both gratifying and inspiring.” Surrey SureSlim Wellness Clinic works with adults and youth ages 12 years and up.

Lose a little or a lot June une ea and De D Debbie did it …and you can too! SureSlim® is a proven, personalized, medically based weight loss program. Using normal grocery store food and your individual blood test results, dramatic weight loss can be achieved through the balance of hormones that control your metabolism. Change the way you look and feel! Lose fat rapidly, safely and permanently!

Check Point Plumbing & Heating Inc. With a commitment to customer satisfaction and nearly 100 years of combined industry experience, Check Point Plumbing is proud to offer top-notch, knowledgeable service you can count on. Beth, Dave, Rich & Kent Whether it’s a clogged sink, a leaky hot water tank or a gas fireplace on the fritz, the team at Check Point Plumbing will get the job done quickly and accurately, according to co-owner Beth Henderson. “We do the job right the first time and ensure that the customer is satisfied,” Henderson said. “We’re very proud of the work we do.” With winter in full swing, this is the time of year many homeowners think about replacing their old, inefficient furnace with a newer and more efficient model. In some respects, today’s high-efficiency furnaces, which generally start around $4,000, are better engineered than the $30,000 car you drive off the lot. With up to 95 per cent efficiency, more heat goes into your home than up the chimney with older models. Redesigned heat exchangers – complete with recovery coils – better insulation with state-of-the-art controls and energy-efficient blower motors, some with four speeds and quiet as a whisper, all provide long-lasting comfort. High and low-fire gas valves combined with variable speed blowers provide the perfect amount of heat required – for warmer days, the gas valve fires on low mode and the blower cuts in on low speed; for cold days, both the gas valve and the blower operate on high to bring your home up to a set temperature, where it will stay comfortably. Also important is a good digital thermostat to replace the old mechanical style you may still have. The friendly folks at Check Point Plumbing would be more than happy to visit your home to check out your existing unit and make some recommendations. Don’t forget, federal EcoEnergy grants are still available as an incentive to make your home more energy efficient – call Check Point today to find out more about this program and all other services they provide. With an emphasis no providing great customer service and competitive pricing, Check Point Plumbing is your best choice for all your plumbing, heating and gas fitting needs.
