Breast cancer patient speaks out after delays

Haitian teen called home

‘I am really scared’

Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

Ginette “Gigi” Clarke was at work when she heard the news. A 7.0-magnitude earthquake Jan. 12 had struck Haiti – the place she spent the first four years of her life. The place she narrowly escaped death as a toddler suffering from malnutrition. The place her two younger sisters and three older brothers still live. The 19-year-old drove to her home in White Rock and cancelled plans for the evening. She spent the night on the couch, between her adoptive parents, Lyza and John, watching the news. While taking in the destruction on TV, she thought of her sisters, 11-year-old Johnda and sevenyear-old Dieula, who live in the same orphanage Gigi was once in. Two days passed before she learned Rainbow of Love Nursery was untouched by the earthquake

Lynda Simpson wonders if a six-month delay allowed cancer to spread.

The Olympic torch relay route through the Semiahmoo Peninsula has at long last been revealed – and the party starts early. Those wishing to catch a glimpse of the flame as it passes through town can start as early as 6:12 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 9, when a yet-to-beannounced torch runner sets off on the first 300-metre leg on 152 Street, just south of Highway 99. From there, the torch will head south on 152 Street, and is expected to pass Semiahmoo Shopping Centre at 6:36. Police say intersections will be blocked along the way to clear the relay’s passage. From the shopping centre, the relay will cross 16 Avenue into White Rock, travelling down Johnston Road before turning east on Roper Avenue. The route then  see page 4

Lynda Simpson wasn’t surprised when she was diagnosed with breast cancer last month. The White Rock woman’s mother died from the disease 13 years ago, after diagnosis at age 42; her aunt on her father’s side has survived three bouts. But as Simpson heads into surgery today (Friday) to have both of her breasts removed, the 43-year-old probation officer can’t help but wonder the impact of an apparent mistake that resulted in a six-month delay in her diagnosis. “I’m scared now,” she said. “I am really scared. I’ve got kids, and I want to be around for them. I can’t tell them for certain... I’m OK.” Last April, a routine mammogram picked up an anomaly in Simpson’s left breast. A follow-up, diagnostic mammogram lead radiologists to recommend an ultrasound – they wanted a clearer picture of the suspected mass. A diagnostic mammogram of her right breast was ordered at the same time. Simpson was booked to come in for the follow-up tests on Oct. 19, six months down the road. After jotting the details of the appointment in her daytimer, she all but put it out of her mind. It was when she went for her appointment that Simpson discovered someone had dropped the ball. The mammogram was conducted as ordered, but when she asked about the ultrasound, the technician told her it wasn’t in the books. “She said, ‘Sweetheart, you  see page 9

news $15 million shortfall projected by school district

‘There will be jobs and programs lost’ Sheila Reynolds Black Press

Imagine there is one dollar on the table. And there are two children with equally important needs. One is in a class in an inner city school that benefits from a meal program, while the other is learning in a portable classroom that desperately needs a bathroom. You can only give the money to one – it’s not an option to give each of them 50 cents. What do you do? It’s this type of ethical dilemma – and there are thousands of them – that the Surrey school district faces as it attempts to balance a budget where the dollars needed far out-

weigh the dollars available. During a meeting with Black Press this week, Supt. Mike McKay, secretary-treasurer Wayne Noye, board of education chair Laurae McNally and communications manager Doug Strachan detailed the financial strain Surrey is under as the district makes plans for the upcoming school year. It’s anticipated the district will fall about $15 million short this autumn if it hopes to maintain what’s currently offered. “There will be (cuts),” McKay said. “There has to be. “It’s not going to look the same. You can’t continue to offer all the

services and programs when you have a $15-million deficit.” McNally said this is the largest shortfall she’s seen in her two decades as an elected trustee. Exactly how schools may be affected has yet to be determined, but senior administration and trustees make it no secret layoffs and service cuts are a certainty. “I can tell you with this kind of a deficit, there will be jobs and programs lost,” McNally said. Vice-chair Shawn Wilson agrees, noting while there may have been some “fat” to trim when budgets were tight in the early 1990s, that simply isn’t the case now.

“When you’re already down to the skin and bones, that’s where it becomes more precarious. At the end of the day, it’s going to affect the classroom.” McKay said there isn’t an employee group that will not be impacted: “In some cases, it will be attrition or retirement... but when you go deeper than that – and it will – it hurts, because those people have made an investment in the school district.” Much of the district’s financial problems stem from provincial initiatives and imposed requirements that haven’t been fully funded. Carbon-reduction programs, full-

day kindergarten and CommunityLINK all add to the shortfall. The biggest hurdle for Surrey, however, is that the school district continues to grow at a rapid rate, while the majority of other areas in B.C. have declining enrolment. While it is illegal for districts to carry a deficit budget, parent and teacher groups have suggested the local district submit a deficit or “needs” budget to the provincial government to prove a point. McNally urged parents and the public to speak out. “The government listens far more to parents than they do to elected officials,” she said.

Council stalls project after letter advises that Fraser Downs ‘affected’

Lawyers warn Surrey over Cheema casino plan One letter – from a lawyer – was all that stalled Surrey council’s decision on a South Surrey casino application Monday, officials now say. While there were other letters in the council package, the legal letter was the cause for pause, according to Coun. Bob Bose. “It was the only one that had any bearing on the decision of council,” Bose said Wednesday. Surrey city clerk Jane Sullivan, in answering questions about the deferral, had told Peace Arch News Tuesday that a number of letters had been received the day before, and that council decided it “needs more time to digest everything.” Surrey council had voted to hold off on

a decision regarding the major project at 8 Avenue and 168 Street after receiving a letter from a lawyer representing Great Canadian Casino at Fraser Downs. Bob Cheema’s planned $180-million development includes a major 200-suite hotel, 800-seat convention centre and a casino. Two weeks after voting 6-3 to send it to public hearing (Mayor Dianne Watts, and Couns. Barbara Steele and Mary Martin opposed), council heard from about half a dozen people regarding the application. Out of the 85 people registering their position, 81 were in favour. However, a letter from Vancouver law firm Lang Michener sent hours before Monday’s meeting says council is overstepping its

authority. “Based on our understanding of the steps taken by the city thus far in respect to the Cheema application, we are of the view that the city may have acted beyond its conferred authority and may have breached the duty of procedural fairness it owes our client,” the letter states. The six-page letter challenges the city regarding its adherence to its Gaming Policy. It also calls Cheema to task about his consultation process. “We understand that Mr. Cheema may have undertaken a public consultation program, but affected parties, such as Fraser Downs, have neither received notice of his consultation program nor been invited to

make submissions in respect thereof, even though Fraser Downs is the most affected party in this process,” the letter states. “Our client has every intention of challenging the approval of the casino portion of the Cheema application if it proceeds in a manner that is unfair to Fraser Downs.” Cheema had reviewed the lawyer’s letter Wednesday, but declined to comment publicly. The city solicitor told council it was well within its authority to give the project approval. But councillors say with an abundance of caution, they chose to delay the decision until Monday, Feb. 1. – Black Press

Debit attack Hudson arrives day before Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A restaurant debit machine compromised last fall recorded about $25,000 in fraudulent activity before the breach was noticed. Const. Janelle Shoihet said the tampering was reported to police Jan. 13, after a bank brought the breach to the White Rock business’ attention. Shoihet would not disclose which restaurant was targeted, stating customers at risk are typically contacted through banks and credit card companies. “The people that have been affected will have been notified,” she said. Efforts to identify those responsible have been unsuccessful. The crime happened in the midst of efforts by the detachment’s community policing section to educate business owners about fraud prevention. Volunteers have spent the past three months visiting each business – including the one that was compromised, Shoihet said. The latest incident is a wake-up call for those who think it can’t happen here, she said. “You think it doesn’t happen in White Rock, but it does.” Any business interested in learning more may contact the community policing unit at 604-5415122.

 from page 1 turns south down Fir Street, and then east again on Buena Vista Avenue. After a quick sidestep down Centre Street and Pacific Avenue, the torch moves past Five Corners back onto Buena Vista, before turning left at Oxford Street and heading for Marine Drive. The relay then travels east down Marine Drive, reaching Semiahmoo Park at approximately 7:22. The torch is to then be transported to Peace Arch Park for a celebration with Canadian and U.S. dignitaries at 7:30. Last October, when announcing the celebration, Premier Gordon Campbell and Washington Gov. Chris Gregoire highlighted the spirit of cooperation across the border. “We’re inviting the people of Washington State and all of the U.S. to share in these Games, and share in the incredible opportunities in tourism, trade and investment that the Olympic Games represent for the entire Pacific Northwest,” the pre-

mier said. From the Douglas Border Crossing, the torch is to be shuttled to North Delta where it is to begin the next leg of the journey at 8:43. Peninsula police say they are not anticipating any trouble along the relay route. Aside from a “hiccup” in Victoria, “everywhere along it’s been pretty good,” South Surrey RCMP Staff Sgt. Scott Campbell said. Campbell said local officers will be on hand at the Peace Arch Park site to provide additional security: “Make sure everybody’s having a good time, but not too good a time,.” White Rock Const. Janelle Shoihet said extra officers will also be out in the seaside city “just to make sure everything goes smoothly” with both the relay and the Royal Hudson steam train’s arrival and departure. The train is set to roll into White Rock at 4 p.m. Feb. 8 and depart at noon on Feb. 9. Feb. 12 opening ceremonies will be celebrated locally at White Rock Community Centre.

editorial

Generosity shines bright erhaps it’s because our governor general – a Haitian native – so eloquently expressed the grief felt by people around the world. Or maybe it’s a long-needed reawakening of this country’s peacekeeping roots. Either way, Canada’s timely and generous response to the devastating situation in Haiti should fill its citizens with pride. Prime Minister Stephen Harper pledged assistance and $5 million in immediate emergency aid the same day the 7.0-magnitude earthquake shook the Caribbean nation on Jan. 12. Since then, Canada has shipped tons of supplies to Haiti, including medical necessities. As of this week, the country’s financial commitment sits at $135 million. Canada’s Disaster Assistance Response Team is already at work, helicopters have been sent and naval frigates are en route. Canadian Forces troops are now on the ground, with more on the way. Here at home, restrictions on Haitian immigrants have been lifted, Haitians temporarily in Canada can now extend their stays, and the government has promised to fasttrack adoptions and immigration applications from Haitians with family in Canada. The financial support is also pouring in, after Ottawa announced it would match individual donations to registered charities, up to $50 million. The generosity is surely just beginning. Like the group of stranded teenagers from the Slocan Valley who reluctantly left Haiti on the weekend (after emptying their own pockets to buy rice for hungry villagers), a refusal to turn our backs on such profound suffering is the Canadian way. Or like the Ray Shepherd Elementary students who aim to raise $4,000 for relief efforts; or Crescent Beach Toys owner Phil Lipton, who has turned his storefront into a silent auction display, with funds raised going to help Heart to Heart Ministries, the same organization that another Crescent Beach resident, Rebecca Honorat, represents in Haiti, where she works in a children’s home. On Jan. 25, Canadian officials met with Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive to discuss the long-term rebuilding goals for Haiti, which experts say will take many years. Harper vows Canada is in for the long haul. With the 2010 Olympics just days away, many of us were getting ready to enjoy seeing Canada shine on the world stage. Who knew it would be so brightly?

You’d never know it the way they slap the puck past the goaltender or bodyslam their torsos into their opponents. In fact, it’s a little surprising at the end of the game when they hop out of their sleds and into their wheelchairs. Maybe being able to transcend adversity is why they clearly love the sport. Maybe it’s why we do. Because almost as impressive as the performance and skill level at Tuesday’s match was the reaction from spectators. The 350-strong crowd – mostly Surrey elementary school kids who were seeing the sport for the first time – erupted into cheers just minutes into the game. A Black Press reporter and photographer – no strangers to covering sporting events – were bowled over by the intensity, speed and full-on contact. (In sledge hockey, there’s actually a penalty called “T-boning.” Use your imagination). It would be well worth trying to snag a seat at the 2010 Paralympics tournament at UBC. Canada won gold at the 2006 Paralympics in Torino, Italy, and the team is ranked third going into this year’s competition after winning a bronze medal at the world championships. Watching these determined guys give it their all on the ice has the pleasant effect of chasing any Olympics-related analyses, grumblings, nay-saying and nitpicking from one’s mind. Go Canada Go! It becomes just as simple as that. Paula Carlson is editor of the SurreyNorth Delta Leader.

Peace Arch News

Goodness prevails Editor: Re: Compassion appreciated, Jan. 22 letters. I was happy to see Diane Hutchison’s letter in the Peace Arch News on Friday, as I have been wondering how she is doing. I happened to be there that dark night after she had fallen on Crescent Road. As I debated whether to stop, the headlines of earlier stories flashed through my mind – “No one stopped to help.” So, I pulled over to see if I could be of assistance. By the time I happened by, there were several people on the scene. John assured me that he was OK with the dogs, another fellow was talking to the 911 dispatcher on his cellphone and a lady ran over identifying herself as a nurse. There really was nothing I could do, so I left. As I drove into my driveway, I could hear the ambulance sirens coming down the hill. My 79-year-old mother often peppers her conversations with, “It’s a crazy world.” And I frequently find myself lamenting that “it didn’t used to be this way.” But after seeing all the people who stepped up to help this struggling senior that night, I was reminded that there are still lots of compassionate people in this world. Hearing stories like this warms the heart and helps us believe that good will prevail. I’m glad you are doing well, Diane, and that you took the time to remind us that there are many angels in this world. Linda Mehus-Barber, Surrey

Don’t follow their example Editor: I need to vent! Sunday morning, I drove my daughter to work. Heading south on 128 Street at 22 Avenue, I heard a siren. I immediately pulled over as far as I could and left my turn signal on. My daughter asked why I pulled over when the fire truck was still blocks behind. She is just learning to drive, so I explained that by pulling over immediately, I have signalled to the driver of the emergency vehicle that I am aware he is coming and he can now concentrate on the road beyond me. Yes, we could pull over when he was right behind us, but that would mean he would have to concentrate on me rather than the road ahead. Once the fire truck passed me, he had to lay on his horn for a white van and the 51 bus, as both continued even though he was within a few car lengths of them. If I heard the siren and heeded immediately, so could they. Take a minute and pull over and stop. And before you pull back out make sure there is not another emergency vehicle following. The

emergency drivers have bigger things to worry about than you. The recent horrible accident on the Alex Fraser Bridge prompted another discussion with my daughter about driving habits. I told her that if her car ever stalls, she should put on her flashers and, as quickly as possible, get out of the car. She, like others, thought she should stay with the car. I advised her that if on a highway, get out the passenger side and distance yourself from the car, if necessary crossing the ditch and waiting on the other side; if on the bridge, climb over the abutment and walk some distance facing the traffic motioning to oncoming drivers to change lanes. Do not sit in your car to call for help, as you will need more than a tow truck if you sit there. Last winter, when we had so much ice, two days in a row we came across stopped cars just east of the Highway 99 overpass on 24 Avenue. In the first, a man sat in the driver’s seat, door open, legs hanging out, talking on the phone while drivers slid around him trying to avoid a collision. The next day, we came over the hump and there was a woman right in front of us in the middle of the lane. She leaned against her car, just standing there. You can’t protect your car – get far away from it. Don’t even get me started on roundabout courtesy and our school parking lot drivers, as this page isn’t long enough. Thanks. I feel better already.

Patients advised to be assertive  from page 1 were supposed to have that ultrasound immediately,’” Simpson said. Though things moved quickly from there – an ultrasound was done Nov. 9; cancer was confirmed Dec. 1; and a 2.4-centimetre tumour was removed from Simpson’s left breast on Dec. 15 – Simpson wants to know how she slipped through the cracks early on, especially given the well-documented connection between early detection and survival. She said her surgeon, Dr. John Todd, told her the six-month delay gave her tumour time to as much as triple in size. Simpson believes mounting pressure on health-care providers to do more with less is at least partly to blame for the mixup. She is sure it also played a role in other testing delays and near-missed appointments she has logged in recent weeks. In one case, a call to enquire about the status of a to-bescheduled pre-operative CT scan resulted in her learning that her appointment was that very day – and that a message with the date and time had been left with her husband. Simpson is a single mother. “The medical system has continued to drop the ball, right down from testing, to the hospital getting proper blood work reports... to phoning and leaving messages with a husband I don’t have. “It keeps going on. Constantly having to phone and make sure they’re doing their job... that’s the last thing I need to worry about right now.” Reached Wednesday, Todd would not comment on Simpson’s case specifically. He did agree that funding cuts are negatively impacting the system. “We’re getting our resources cut back very, very significantly because of cutbacks in funding. If things are getting delayed, it would be because of that,” Todd said. He noted he had to tell two cancer patients last Friday that their surgeries couldn’t be done until the third week of March because of operatingroom closures. He gave similar news to two more patients on Tuesday. “Our cancer patients that should be operated on in a very few weeks, some of mine are now waiting eight weeks... from the time they have a diagnosis. That’s unacceptable,” Todd said. Things that are missed, however, cannot be blamed on a budget, Todd said. “It’s just there are greater pressures on the system to perhaps say, that should be fine, maybe.” Regarding patients with whom preliminary testing raises suspicion, Todd said in general, further investigation “should be done within a few weeks,” regardless of family history. “If you find something that you’re going to want to

Lynda Simpson awaits results. investigate, you’re going to want to work it up within a month,” he said. Impact of a delay would depend on a tumour’s “doubling time,” he said. Fraser Health’s Joan Marshall also wouldn’t comment on Simpson’s case, citing privacy laws. She did say it is not typical procedure to conduct mammograms and ultrasounds on the same day. Any tests that are flagged as urgent by the requisitioning physician are treated as such,

she added. “If it was requested as urgent, I expect it would have gone through. If it wasn’t, there is sometimes a wait. I can assure you if things are marked urgent, they are performed urgently.” Simpson expects to learn after today’s surgery if her cancer has spread. She doesn’t know how big her tumour was when the anomaly was first spotted last April. She does feel that the system failed her. “The fact I went six months without that testing is pretty significant,” Simpson said. “I guess we’ll find out how significant.” Just in case, she signed over power of attorney to her brother last week. Emphasizing she is not on a “witch hunt,” Simpson refused to disclose the name of the doctor who ordered her tests last April. For now, she is simply encouraging those who can to be diligent with their own test results, and not wait for a call that may never come. She is worried about those who can’t take as assertive a role. “I can follow up on things, I can question doctors. What about all these poor people out here that can’t? “My main concern is that the community is aware. They need to question. If they don’t hear back... call in every single case. “You don’t know if they’ve forgotten about you. It happened to me.” Marshall echoed Simpson’s call for patients to be vigilant with tests and test results. “We would urge all patients to be vigilant about ensuring all tests recommended by health professionals are ordered and performed. I think, her message, it’s a good one to get out.”

perspectives …on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Finding family  from page 1 her brothers would contact her. She waited for the phone to ring. It didn’t for nine days. ••• Lyza Clarke was in a Haitian hospital when she saw the child. Lying in a cot, the two-year-old wore a wet dress over her swollen belly and protruding ribs. When a nurse sat her up, she stared at Lyza with wide eyes set in a sunken face. Gigi looked like an old woman. When Gigi asked someone to fix her hair, tears streamed down Lyza’s face – the toddler’s hair had turned yellow and fallen out, save for a small tuft on the top of her head. The nurse braided it. When Gigi held out a deflated balloon, the nurse rinsed it off, blew it up and handed it back. She smiled and said “merci.” It was a moment that changed Lyza’s life. “That little girl was on the verge of dying and she still did that,” Lyza told Peace Arch News this week. “It was like an epiphany. I had an experience I have never had before. All of a sudden I was aware that this one person, this one child, I can do something for.” Upon returning to Canada with her church group, Lyza helped fund medical care for Gigi. The girl was transferred to a private hospital and underwent surgery for an infected abscess in her abdomen. Lyza was sent updates, and saw from pictures that Gigi’s hair started to grow back. “I thought, I can’t believe it’s the same kid.” About a year after Lyza’s 1992 trip to Haiti, she learned that Gigi’s mother – who had tuberculosis and was struggling to support her other children – had put her daughter up for adoption. “I actually felt like I was pregnant – instantly,” Lyza said, noting she discussed adoption with John, who said he needed time to think about it. The couple already had three children, the youngest age 16. “He came home that night and his first words to me were, ‘Go get her,’” Lyza said. Five months later, Gigi was on a plane out of Haiti. She wouldn’t return for 14 years. ••• After graduating from Semiahmoo Secondary in 2008, Gigi yearned to find her family. She found a church group planning a summer trip to Haiti and joined them. “It was just something I knew I wanted to do,” she said. “I wanted to rediscover Haiti and I wanted to blend in. I wanted to be there, get a feel for the place.” The only lead she had was a photo album

Gigi Clarke this week looks through a photo album filled with her baby pictures. At right, Peace Arch News photographed her being welcomed by adoptive mother, Lyza, in 1994. with a picture the orphanage director had sent her 10 years before of her mother, aunt, cousins, brothers and grandparents. While staying in a guest house, she met an aid worker who offered to take her into Cité Soleil – a dangerous area to travel in alone. They rode by motorbike. A man in his 60s was just one of the residents to greet them when they arrived. When shown the picture of Gigi’s family, he looked down, then up at Gigi. “I know exactly who you are,” he told her. He had been friends with Gigi’s grandfather, and had held her as a baby. “I can take you to your family’s house.” The small structure was made of cement. Gigi remembers it being dirty and smelly. There was no electricity or plumbing. “I was outside the door,” she recalled. “I was just like, ‘Wow, I’m here.’ I wasn’t nervous or scared.” When she entered the house, she saw a

! d e m a r F n We’ve Bee

woman sitting on the floor and a man standing off to the side. Gigi’s aunt and cousin knew right away who she was, and greeted her with kisses on the cheek. Her brothers were in the street and came in when they heard the commotion. Through a translator, Gigi asked about their life. They said her mother had died years before of tuberculosis, and introduced her to two sisters she didn’t know she had. When her mother’s friends heard of her arrival, they came over and kissed her, some celebrating with song and dance. Her oldest brother, John – who had been nine when she left – was the only one not smiling. When Gigi asked what was wrong, he hid his face. He went into the house and she followed, putting her arms around him. “I never thought this day would come,” he said in English. “I never thought I’d see you again. I remember you. My little sister.” During her month-long stay, Gigi visited

her family a couple times a week and learned of their lifestyle. They didn’t eat every day, and slept on two shared beds or the floor. Despite being poor, they dressed in their finest clothes and cooked meals when she visited. “One of the best things is to see people who look like you. It was a crazy feeling to be like ‘you are a part of me.’ They loved me right away and I fell in love with them right away.” She was told how their mother always talked about Gigi, and had kept one of her toys. “(She) would start to cry when she played with it because it reminded her of me. She gave it away to another little girl a couple days before she died.” Before leaving, Gigi took her younger sisters to Rainbow of Love Nursery, where many workers recognized and greeted her. They agreed to take in Johnda and Dieula, who arrived with just one change of clothes and a pair of shoes. Gigi visited them, as well as her brothers, during a second trip in January 2009 and has kept in touch via cellphone, talking to John every couple of weeks. When the earthquake hit, however, that communication was cut off. ••• The news coming out of Haiti was getting worse and worse. The death toll was climbing and Gigi learned the guest house she had stayed in during her visits was demolished, killing two Canadians. She still hadn’t heard from her brothers. Then, nine days after the earthquake, Gigi’s phone rang. It was John. The call lasted a minute before it cut out – just enough time for him to say everyone was OK, that the house was “broken.” This week, he was able to call again, telling Gigi they were living on the street, and that one brother’s girlfriend had died. Gigi is anxious to get to them, and will be flying out tomorrow (Saturday). Even before she heard from John, Gigi knew she had to go to Haiti. “It’s kind of like an instant reaction,” she said. “I know every other Haitian who’s not in Haiti is in the same boat as me.” Gigi is travelling with the same church group from her first trip, and will hand out supplies she is bringing in a backpack. She told her brothers she will be staying in a tent in the area of the orphanage. This time, she is counting on them finding her.

A flash mob – of 170 church youth group members and friends – broke into a dance last weekend at Metrotown.

Flash mob footage to encourage donations

Dance breaks out for Haiti Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

The sound system was hidden in a shopping cart, and 170 people who made a special trip to Metrotown last weekend pretended to be regular shoppers. That was until the clock struck 1:53 p.m. – the same time a 7.0-magnitude earthquake hit Haiti two weeks ago – and the group broke out in dance. The flash mob – started by a Peace Portal Alliance Church youth group – performed a routine to a mix of eight songs, including numbers by Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga and The Beatles. A professional dancer volunteered to teach the choreographed

sequence to group members, who have been preparing for a couple weeks. “A lot of people don’t know how to dance,” youth pastor Geoff Stewart said. “We posted the video of our practices on YouTube under a code name so people (could) practise at home.” Participants ranged in age from seven to over 50, and were made up of youth group members – Grade 7s to 12s – and their friends and families. Stewart said once the group started dancing in the mall’s main court, a crowd of more than 500 people gathered to watch. “They were cheering like crazy.” Footage of the event will be

posted on YouTube, and Stewart plans to invite companies to make a pledge for every hit the video receives. Donations will benefit efforts in Haiti. “Our sights are set pretty high as to what this can do.” Stewart said flash mobs are an effective way to get people’s attention, especially when fundraising. “They’re very culturally relevant and popular. They bring joy to people who watch them. They’re kind of a ray of hope at times. They’re fun.” To watch the video, Flash Mob for Haiti, visit www.youtube.com For more information or to donate, contact flashmobforhaiti@gmail.com

Best Buy – Correction Notice

Complaints over hunters Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Reports of shots fired led police to some fowl play earlier this month. Officers raced to the 16500-block of 40 Avenue on two occasions – first around 4 p.m. on Jan. 15 and again at 2:30 p.m. on Jan. 17. Both times, they heard shots. But they also heard duck calls, said Const. Kenn Meglic. “Apparently, there’s an ongoing problem with persons shooting guns in the field south of that particular intersection,” Meglic said. The second call-out lead police to

an area resident who advised officers he had given permission for the hunters to be on the property. The hunters left before police could speak with them. Surrey conservation officer Jack Trudgian said the activity is allowed – provided the hunters have their ducks in a row. They must be licenced, have the property owner’s permission and not be within 100 metres of the house. As well, it can only be done during open season. For ducks, the season closed Jan. 22; the next opportunity to hunt geese begins Feb. 10.

Emerging artist hopes to provide ‘breath of fresh air’ Alex Browne Arts Reporter

Charles Schrodt photo

Phil Dickson at White Rock Pier.

It’s all about telling the truth in song. There’s an underlying note of sincerity to Phil Dickson’s music that communicates itself to audiences, whether as frontman-vocalist for South Surrey-based rock band Oddchild or in his increasingly popular role as self-accompanied singer-songwriter featured in frequent acoustic gigs at Johnston Road’s Small Ritual Coffee Society. It’s even winning the Earl Marriott grad fans as far afield as Toronto and New Zealand, thanks to upbeat original songs like ‘Dreamer’ and savvy use of the live streaming capabilities of the Internet.

An open letter to audiences that Dickson penned for a recent showcase pinpoints his appeal succinctly – he’s ready, he says, “to help provide the value of a smile and a breath of fresh air through my guitar and voice... either as a solo act or with my band I hope to enlighten, encourage, influence and shed some light on someone’s dark situation of their day.” Little surprise, then, to learn he’s lending his talents to a fundraiser at Sawbuck’s Neighborhood Pub this Saturday (Jan. 30, 7 p.m. 1626 152 St.) to benefit a medical mission to Africa. The event will help fund travel and supplies for the South and West Africa Mission (SWAM) project of Peace Arch Hospital’s Dr. Lourens Perold, which will take Perold and

fellow volunteers Dr. Jennifer Montgomery, and registered nurses Christine Patrie, Anne Elmore, Kathie Edwards and Janet McNally to Paynesville, near Monrovia, Liberia, for seven days to work among children and families in great need of medical assistance. And although tickets for the dinner portion of the evening are already sold out, those who want to catch Dickson’s act are welcome – and they’re also free to participate in the silent auction, 50-50 draw, or simply make a donation. Paula Marfleet has been very heavily involved in fundraising for the SWAM event from the beginning, and was the one who suggested the artist as an ideal entertainer for the evening.  see page 28

Solo act gaining popularity  from page 27 “His sister is married to my nephew,” she explained. “I said, ‘what about Phil?’ I thought we should get him before he’s discovered and costs us a gazillion dollars per night.” For his part, Dickson said he was happy to volunteer his services. “I always love doing things for causes like this,” he said. “I think it makes a difference in the world.” His solo act has been a recent and unexpected development in his musical career, he admits. “It happened a lot quicker than Oddchild did – but, then, it’s a lot harder to make a success with a band,” he said. Oddchild is still very much alive and kicking, he noted. “Brad Trivett, who is a key member of Oddchild, has been having some health issues,” he explained. “As soon as Brad is on his feet again, we’ll be going full speed.” In the downtime from working with Oddchild, Dickson had started to experiment with working as a single, and was soon being approached to perform as a solo at friends’ weddings; finding in classics like Ben E. King’s Stand By Me the beginnings of his own Dave Matthews-Jason MrazJohn Mayer-inspired acoustic sound. What began as a tryout at Small Ritual Coffee soon worked into a once-a-month gig, he said. “It’s taken off from there and been quickly growing – I’ve done a couple of gigs at the Washington Avenue Grill and at the Elks Hall as well.” His covers include artists from Matthews to The Beatles, Dickson said. And he is developing a growing repertoire of originals, sometimes dusting off lyric ideas he wrote years ago. “I often find the lyrics will work well with some tune I’m working on now,” adding that he finds songwriting challenging. “I’m a perfectionist. I’ll write a song and sit on it for three months, letting it hum in my head.”

Travelling this Year?

Arts centre most popular suggestion

Results of arts forum released Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

The creation of an arts centre in White Rock was the most popular concept that arose at A Conversation on the Arts, held last November to pinpoint ways to grow and sustain the local arts community. The finding was presented to city council this week by Steven Hughes of White Rock’s cultural committee, which hosted the day-long forum. “In order to create a cohesive arts community in White Rock, more space needs to become available,” he said. Hughes noted there are no

dedicated arts facilities in the city, and while forum participants wanted to see one multipurpose art space, the idea of multiple arts spaces was not dismissed. With 80 people involved in the visual and performing arts taking part in the event, Hughes said participants were “enthusiastic” and wanted the forum to continue. “People did not want this dialogue to stop.” The main theme was centralizing or unifying the arts community through collaborating across age groups, artistic disciplines and social sectors.

Input was compiled into a report, which recommends council create a dedicated arts centre and central registry for artists; work with counterparts in Surrey; establish a centralized location to advertise arts events; create outdoor performance spaces and multidisciplinary events; and find opportunities for arts and business, such as a centralized ticket sales outlet. It also encouraged council to follow arts-supported initiatives such as busking, developing the city’s public art collection, dedicating a specified dollar amount to the arts each

year and hosting quarterly forums on the arts. Creation of a “cultural action” team – made up of community arts reps and members of the city’s cultural committee – was suggested. Hughes said engaging youth in the arts community was another issue raised. “Youth in the community are not being represented proportionately in the community.” Council referred the report’s comments to city staff, who will report back at a future date. The report is posted online at www.city.whiterock.bc.ca

Issues still relevant  from page 27 “It’s excellent writing but it’s also true – boy, did he do his research.” The play raises issues that are still current, Pendleton said – noting that this was her inspiration for organizing the Haiti relief benefit. “The tragedy in Haiti raises the same questions,” she said. “What do we do with the orphans? Put them on a boat and sail them halfway around the world?” It also – as a piece based on monologues – gives more of an acting workout for each of her young players than the usual, less meaty script would. And while it isn’t mired in sensationalism or inappropriateness, it

doesn’t shy away from social issues that are just as real in 2010 as they were in 1914. And the performers are learning just as much through the rehearsal process as their potential audiences, Pendleton said. “The children have been writing journals on their characters since September – either what it was like to be on the train, or to be the characters in their 80s or 90s and tell us what happened after. “They also had to start with what had happened before they got on the train – Harris writes a few lines on that for each one – but they had to come up with a whole background.”

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Southridge boys first for fourth straight year With four more wins in a little more than a week – and 11 straight in league play – the Southridge Storm senior boys basketball team clinched its Fraser Valley AA league title for the fourth straight season. Since Jan. 19, the Storm have reeled off a string of victories, over the Sands Scorpions, Holy Cross Crusaders and Pacific Academy Breakers – twice. The wins gave Southridge an 11-0 league record. On Jan. 19, Storm defeated Sands 87-36, led by Matt Sinitsin, who

was the high-scorer for the Peninsula squad, finishing with 18 points, while also picking up eight rebounds. In total, seven Storm players finished with double-digit points, including Jacob Andreou (13 points), Jordan Yee (11) and Jonathan Yu, Rider Laskin, Aavis Bhindi and Royce Holmes, all of whom had 10. The following day, the Storm won their first of two games against Pacific Academy, 76-54. Yee led the charge this time for the Peninsula school, with 25

points and seven assists. Sinitsin had another big game with 15 points and eight rebounds, and Jacob Andreou also finished with a double-double, with 12 points and 17 boards. There was little time to rest before hitting the court again, as the Storm suited up the following day – the team’s third game in a row, and seventh in 10 days – but showed no sign of fatigue, beating Holy Cross 59-42. Southridge was forced to play without injured Jag Dhatt – his third straight game on the sidelines

– and also played much of the contest without Andreou, who spent much of the game in foul trouble. Nevertheless, Storm received strong showings from Yee, Sinitsin and Michael Carter, who had nine points and eight rebounds. The title-clinching victory game Tuesday night, again over the Breakers, 76-42. Both teams started the game slowly, which kept the score close until halftime, but the defending champions broke the contest open in the second half and coasted to the win.

Yee came up big, registering solid numbers in all statistical categories after a 22-point, six-rebound, sixsteal, six-assist night. Holmes added 12 points while Bhindi had eight points and nine rebounds. After such a hectic mid-month schedule, the Storm now have a few days off, before hosting Burnsview Secondary on Feb. 2. The game – the last regular-season tilt at home – is also the Storm’s seniors night, where graduating players are to be honoured. - Nick Greenizan

hit a little bit of ice and crashed,” he said – and landed hard on his knee, twisting it. The end result was a torn anteriorcruciate ligament (ACL), which kept him from taekwondo for two years – a tough adjustment, considering he’d been practicing the sport since he was six years old. “I didn’t really know how bad it was, after it happened,” he

explained, while sitting in the lounge of Chang’s Taekwondo Martial Arts, his home dojo. “After I hurt it, I actually came back (to Chang’s) and tried to work out, but it was pretty bad, and I just couldn’t do it.” A quick trip to the doctor confirmed the injury, which resulted in surgery and a lengthy rehab process, which meant a long time

away from his sport. “It took a long time to get better, a real long time,” Arnold said. The young martial artist persevered – “I’m here pretty much every day during the week, and sometimes on the weekend, too,” he said – and his hard work paid off handsomely earlier this month, at the Junior National Taekwondo  see page 35

Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

In the first of three straight games against the Burnaby Express, the Surrey Eagles got off on a good note, winning 5-2 Wednesday night at Burnaby’s Bill Copeland Arena. Forward Adam Basford led the visiting squad with a fourpoint night, scoring an unassisted marker in the first period – after intercepting an Express pass – and assisting on three other goals. Brad McGowan, Andrew Wallace – who also had two assists – Grant Toulmin and Richard Vanderhoek also scored for Surrey, while Alex Petan and Zac Ashdown replied for Burnaby. The power-play was the key issue for both clubs, as five of the game’s seven goals were scored with the man advantage. The Eagles were 3-for-5. The win ended a four-game losing streak for the Eagles, who have struggled since the calendar turned to 2010. They’re just 3-7 in January, and currently occupy fifth place in the BC Hockey League’s Coastal Conference, with 57 points – four points back of Langley. The two teams will renew hostilities tonight (Friday) at South Surrey Arena – puck drop is 7 p.m – and then again Saturday, back in Burnaby.

There may not be any Peninsula athletes competing for Canada at the 2010 Winter Olympics, but fans of the Surrey Eagles will have a pair of hockey players to cheer for when the men’s hockey tournament begins in Vancouver. Two former Eagles, T.J. Mulock and Jakub Ficenec, will suit up for Germany at the 2010 Games. Ironically, neither player is a native German. Mulock, a former Eagles captain who left the team during the 2005/06 season, is a Langley resident, and Ficenec, 32, hails from the Czech Republic. Both players play in the German Elite League, and have obtained German citizenship. Mulock will be a name familiar to recent

Peace Arch United’s U21 continued its successful season last weekend with a 3-1 win over Pitt Meadows. The win, PAU’s third consecutive victory, saw the continuation of the Peninsula squad’s offensive exploits – the team has scored 15 goals since returning from the holiday break. Aiden Boulet, Adam Walker and Andrew Mazzone all scored for Peace Arch, with Mazzone’s tally giving him a team-leading nine markers on the season. At midfield, Naeem Ahmed was a force for PAU, while Connor McCann and Dan Campagne also played well on the back line. Tom Johnston was between the pipes for United. Peace Arch plays a second-round Cup game Sunday.

That’s where, on the grandest stage of his young career, Arnold – in Grade 8 at Earl Marriott Secondary – fought his way through the welterweight division (54-57 kg), and finished with a bronze medal. His only loss came in semifinals. “It was the biggest event I’d ever been at, and there were a lot of people watching, and a lot of world champions there, so it felt really good,” he said. “I knew there would be some really tough (competition), which there was, but overall, in my weight category, I think I did pretty good, considering it was my first time there.” Arnold also admitted that his long journey back from injury was forefront on his mind as he received his bronze medal. “I thought about it, for sure, just because I’d trained so much to get there, to get to that point. It meant a lot.” In addition to his heavy training schedule, Arnold also teaches younger taekwondo students at Chang’s. He’s a junior assistant instructor, and teaches as many as three classes a day. His commitment to the sport has been contagious, too. In the years since taking up taekwondo, Arnold’s 10-year-old sister,

Street Name Changes The City of Surrey, in consultation with business and community associations, has approved the renaming of a number of important roads within the City Centre area of Surrey along with the full length of King George Highway. These changes are being made both in response to input from the public and also as a sign of our own commitment to developing Surrey City Centre as the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second downtown. With construction of a new regional library starting later this year, the planning for a new City Hall underway, expansion of Simon Fraser University, the construction of the Chuck Bailey sports and recreational facility and many more exciting development projects in the pipeline, the renaming of key streets further demonstrates the vision for our City Centre. These changes will take effect on January 31, 2010, with Canada Post Corporation providing 12 months of uninterrupted mail delivery to affected properties. The speciďŹ c road name changes are: Current Road Names â&#x20AC;˘ King George Highway â&#x20AC;˘ East Whalley Ring Road â&#x20AC;˘ West Whalley Ring Road â&#x20AC;˘ 135 Street within City Centre

New Road Names â&#x20AC;˘ King George Boulevard â&#x20AC;˘ Whalley Boulevard â&#x20AC;˘ University Drive â&#x20AC;˘ City Parkway

These include portions of 134 Street, 134A Street 136A Street, 137 Street and Hilton Road in the City Centre as shown in the illustrations. All affected properties addressed on these streets will receive a letter and marked maps showing the changes. The letter will explain the process set up by the City to ensure a smooth transition and steps that need to be taken by the property owners.

In the 10 years I have been advertising with the Peace Arch News, I have had excellent service. The sales representatives have always been very organized, helpful and cheerful in an otherwise busy environment of current news and deadlines to meet. It’s quite amazing how they visualize my needs, proof the product and deliver the goods on time. I always get the sense that the Peace Arch News is the community newspaper. This is the newspaper the customers read and that is important to me and my advertising dollars.

I have been lucky enough to own a business in White Rock since 1984 and along the way the Peace Arch News has been an integral part of my success. Very simply, I have relied on the Peace Arch News to generate consistent, effective response to my ads. In the course of my 26 years in business our clients, most of which came to us through our newspaper ads are now our great friends. I am so grateful that we live and work in such a close knit community and that our local newspaper is there to meet the needs of all of its residents.

Since the time I started my dance business five years ago, the Peace Arch News was the first advertising media I used and has been my principal advertising tool ever since then.

At Mareth’s Hair Studio our message has always been to promote a commitment of professionalism in our work and value to our clients. With the Peace Arch News and their extensive circulation as our marketing partner, Mareth’s has flourished.

Advertising in the Peace Arch News is good value – it reaches the people we hope to reach in our area. Many of our customers have told us they saw our ad in the Peace Arch News and like to shop locally. The paper has a large readership and focuses on local events and businesses. Advertising dollars can only go so far so it’s nice to support a local paper that seems to address the kind of editorials and ads that are of interest to the residents of the area.
