Vandalism spree

‘Balanced’ idea dropped

Seniors victimized

School’s out for summer

Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

Ruth Cannon is just one of more than a dozen seniors who woke up Wednesday morning to find their vehicles had been broken into. While some of the cars were inside the gated, underground lot of Kiwanis Park Place, 12850 26 Ave., Cannon’s ’93 Toyota Tercel and other affected vehicles had been parked on the street. Cannon’s car had been accessed through a smashed window. The 66-year-old’s GPS was stolen, and her backseat was pulled out for access to the trunk. “It’s like your privacy isn’t there anymore; it’s not a nice feeling,” she said. Resident tenancy board president Jim Williams told Peace Arch News RCMP were called after a resident heard the underground lot’s gate closing and saw people carrying out items at about 12:15 a.m. March 17. Around the same time, he said, another resident who was walking his dog saw a pile of loot on the sidewalk outside the seniors’ building. While RCMP were on site, Williams said, a pickup truck pulled into the adjacent fire hall parking lot. An officer stopped and inspected the vehicle, before apprehending three male occupants, who looked to be in their 40s. “Two or three more police cars came,” he recalled. “They handcuffed them and took them in their vehicles.” Surrey RCMP spokesperson Const. Peter Neily said, however, only one person, the driver of the vehicle, had been taken into cus see page 4

Public-school students will continue to have two months of summer vacation for the “foreseeable future” locally. The idea of changing the calendar to shorten summer break and, instead, spread those weeks throughout the year was floated late last year by the district – and received a chilly response. A letter was sent out in December describing the concept of a socalled balanced calendar, and invited public input. More than 400 responses were received from parents, staff and students. The Surrey Board of Education also discussed ❝The lineup the idea with employee was pretty and parent groups. long for The outcome?

Supporters also suggested other options, such as extending the school year into mid-July rather than having kids end their vacation and go back to class in mid-August. Still, most who responded weren’t thrilled with changing the long-running practice of children and teens having July and August off. The most common concerns were about summer classroom temperatures, family vacations and student employment for high school-aged kids. At one point, there was even a Facebook page called “Say NO to mandatory summer school” opposing the proposed schedule change. “The discussion is over,” Surrey Board of Education chairperson Laurae McNally said of the short-lived conversation about possibly altering the school year. “The lineup was pretty long for people who weren’t interested.”

news Health care included in Chamber of Commerce presentation

MLA Hogg critical of HST pitch Melissa Smalley Staff Reporter

Despite a budget deficit of $2.7 billion, B.C. is on its way to recovery, MLA Gordon Hogg told business leaders at a luncheon Wednesday. Speaking to a crowd of about 50 hosted by the White Rock/South Surrey Chamber of Commerce, Hogg (Surrey-White Rock) touched on some aspects of the provincial budget released earlier this month, infrastructure funding and the province’s post-Olympics momentum. He also brought up the much-debated Harmonized Sales Tax, set to be implemented July 1, admitting his Liberal party had not done a good job relaying information about the new tax to British Columbians. “I think we all agree in terms of what happened with this, it was not conveyed very well, still I don’t think we’ve done a very good job of being able to talk about what the information is and where it leads,” Hogg said. “The challenge we have, I think, is the impact it has on individuals – what does it mean for me and my household?” While the province has projected a $2-billion

MLA Gordon Hogg addresses business leaders. increase to health-care funding over the next three years to what Hogg described as “frontline services,” he said a closer look needs to be taken at how those services are managed. “One of the interesting things about health care, everywhere you look at it, is that spending money doesn’t make a system better, it doesn’t make the outcomes better,” Hogg said, citing a U.S. study that compared health-care services of two cities with similar demographics. In that study, Hogg said one city spent 2½ times as

much as the other, however, the city that spent less experienced better outcomes. “There’s no correlation between the amount of money one spends and the outcomes one gets,” he said, noting that about 90 per cent of the province’s new spending is going to health care. “We obviously have to provide those services, but unless we have some type of restraint, we’re going to have major issues.” Hogg predicted the Peninsula’s new Centre for Active Living, with a price tag of about $7 million and a target completion date of October 2010, would have a “profound and significant” impact on the province’s health-care system. He said he also expects the global attention B.C. received during last month’s Winter Olympic Games will have a lasting affect on the province’s economy, based on the glowing feedback he received from international visitors during the Games. “Decisions are not made always on the best evidence, they’re made on a feeling,” he said, noting that the province’s sense of jubilation and camaraderie would likely be an incentive for tourists to return.

Worker falls three storeys An injured worker was airlifted by helicopter to Vancouver General Hospital Wednesday (March 17), following a threestorey fall from scaffolding on a Marine Drive building. The unidentified man was working on ongoing envelope reconstruction for a building in the 14800 block when the accident happened, around noon, according to deputy fire Chief Rob Atkinson said. “Apparently he was at the top of the scaffold and stepped off that,” Atkinson said. White Rock Fire members gave first aid to the man and prepared him for B.C. Ambulance Service paramedics, who transported him to the helicopter pad at Earl Marriott Secondary for the flight to hospital. White Rock RCMP also attended the scene of the accident, and controlled traffic while the man was being transferred to an ambulance. WorkSafeBC media relations director Donna Freeman confirmed that the incident is under investigation, but that further details could not be released without consent of the accident victim or his family. – Alex Browne

Work continues on the Hump this week after concerns that earlier trimming to improve residents’ views left the area looking “rather unfinished.”

Activist warns of further cutting on the Hump

BNSF trimmers return for a little more Alex Browne & Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporters

Workers were back at the Hump Tuesday to clean up the recent trimming job that left vegetation looking “ragged.” Phase 2 of trimming started March 1 – a year and a half after protests temporarily halted the first phase – upon requests from Hump residents. But this month’s work left vegetation looking “a bit raw and rather unfinished,” according to Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway’s director of public affairs, who said additional grooming was required. “It needed to be smoother, some of the limbs needed to be cut down and tapered to more blend in with the landscape,” Gus Melonas said. “It appeared to be a bit ragged in BNSF’s view and we want to ensure it’s more aesthetically pleasing.”

City manager Peggy Clark confirmed White Rock has received assurances from BNSF that cutting will not include the area’s celebrated Eagle tree or other trees surrounding it. Meanwhile, Don Pitcairn, a community activist and former provincial Green Party candidate, continued to protest the latest BNSF trimming, describing it as a “defacto clearcut of the hump hillside.” Pitcairn, who has long said such work would threaten slope stability, attached Canadian flags to trees on the Hump earlier this month, in protest of what he characterized as “the cutting of Canadian trees by a U.S. company.” “It looks like the second phase is complete, but I’m awfully concerned we’re going to see more tree cutting on the Hump at a later date,” he said Wednesday. “I’m interested

not only in protecting stands of big-leaf maple trees but also the famed Eagle-roosting tree.” Mayor Catherine Ferguson said she and council members were satisfied after a meeting that BNSF is doing due diligence with regard to slope stability. “It’s in their best interests to ensure the stability of the slope, because it’s a liability issue for them if anything were to fall on the tracks,” she said. Ferguson added that there is little council can do about such tree trimming on private property. “The bottom line is that it’s BNSF land, and they can do what they need to do on it. What we did say was that it would be better for us to be advised in advance of such work – that way we’re dealing with something we know about, rather than reacting after the fact.”

Melonas acknowledged BNSF had received phone calls from people who were unhappy with the initial work earlier this month. “There were a few complaints about the cutting and that it did appear to be unfinished and it does impact the natural look of the vegetation.” He said BNSF consulted with the architect retained for the project. “We all agreed additional blending should occur just for a more tapered, finalized appearance.” Slope stability and railroad safety would not be impacted, he added. “BNSF wanted to ensure that natural habitat, that the bald eagles, the evergreens, were not touched, and the cutting was done in a minimal matter.” Melonas noted the majority of calls BNSF has received about the project have been favourable.

A Surrey man charged with aggravated assault has been sentenced to one day in jail and six months probation after admitting in court last November of stabbing another man at least two times outside a Roper Avenue house on Jan. 19, 2008. Thomas Michael Bennett had changed his earlier guilty plea to not guilty, telling Judge Ellen Gordon the injuries were inflicted in self-defence after the other man came at him with a machete. The statement was made in Surrey Provincial Court during Bennett’s Nov. 12-13 trial, which was ordered last March after Bennett changed his plea. Bennett, 23, was arrested after an altercation between two men sent one to Peace Arch Hospital with serious injuries. At the time, police said the assault occurred as one man was trying to smooth things over with his girlfriend’s ex-boyfriend. A 22-year-old suffered stab wounds to the shoulder, abdomen and wrist. The shoulder wound was so severe there was initial concern the man could lose his arm. Damage was such that he was off work for about 10 months. The case ended March 16; Bennett’s sentence included two days of credited jail time. – Hannah Sutherland

MARCH SPECIALS

Court-ordered election to proceed March 31

Chair chosen for BIA vote Alex Browne Staff Reporter

A chair has been chosen to conduct the upcoming election meeting of the White Rock Business Improvement Association. Eli Mina, a Vancouver-based registered parliamentarian, consultant, meeting facilitator, mentor and coach, has been retained to chair the meeting, to be held under a B.C. Supreme Court order to resolve a long-running controversy by providing a legitimate board of directors, recognized by all members, for the organization. The election has been set for 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, March 31, at Star of the Sea Hall (upper room) at 15262 Pacific Ave. A total of 11 directors are to be elected.

BIA executive director Russ Davies, still acting for the organization until his resignation takes effect after March 31, said Mina was one of two available registered parliamentarians suggested to Larry Anschell, who had represented the rival board of the BIA elected at a requisitioned meeting last July 7. “This was the one he chose,” said Davies. A legal action instituted by BIA president Bill Lawrence, attempting to gain an injunction to stop Anschell and other defendants from “representing themselves as the White Rock BIA” resulted in Supreme Court Justice Robert Crawford ordering all sides to co-operate in holding a new election on March 31. Crawford ruled a new elec-

tion would ensure candidates on all sides of the issue had their “democratic” right to run for the board. Notification to all commercial property owners and business tenants listed with the city went out on or before March 17– with property owners’ notifications mailed and tenants notices handdelivered, Davies said. While the initial deadline to submit nominations for directors was 5 p.m., March 16, members can still submit their names in writing to Davies for nomination, up to 5 p.m. March 26, provided each nomination has the written support of two other BIA members. Those who have not received notification, or who need further information, are asked to contact Davies at 604-536-4958.

Financial hardship for car owners from page 1 tody, at around 12:45 a.m. “On the vehicle stop, it looked like the driver was prohibited (from operating a vehicle),” he said. “It’s a matter, now, of determining if that person was involved in the offence.” But he indicated the thief, or thieves, didn’t get everything they wanted in the break-ins. “Two ignitions were compromised, so it looks like there was an attempted theft of these vehicles,” Neily added. While Niely said police records show 13 cars had been vandalized, Williams the number is 15. Williams said the gate to the underground lot had been pried, and the passenger-side windows of all the burglarized vehicles were smashed. “And (the thieves) just went inside the cars and tore everything to pieces practically,” he said. “They knew what they were doing, because they crawled through the window to stop the alarm from going off.” The financial ramifications are significant, Williams said, especially for seniors with limited incomes. “It will cost them over $300 to get their windows fixed, plus the damage that they’ve done inside and the property they took,” Williams said, noting one car was so severely damaged, it is now a write-off. “I believe the whole works, 15 vehicles, will be over $10,000.” Cannon, who took her car in to be fixed Wednesday, said the repairs cost her $180. “It also is expensive. Most people who live in here don’t have a lot of money,” she said.

“There’s a lot of people in here who are older, and if you’re older, you’d find it even harder to deal with.” Williams said he is calling a meeting next week to discuss the incident with residents. “I’m hoping that we can resolve it and get the people comfortable because the seniors, their nerves are shot. There’s some people

here that their relatives are out of town and they’re alone.” Williams said there have been other break-ins in the past – such as when his car was vandalized two years ago – but Cannon said she is not aware of other incidents in the four years she has lived there. “I’ve never even given my car a thought,” she said.

Dispute took far too long to settle

I

t would be a fool’s game to predict any winners at the White Rock Business Improvement Association’s upcoming courtmandated election at the end of the month for a new board of directors. Even after the last ballot has been counted, and a directorship mandated by the city’s business community begins to take shape, supporters of rival sides of the controversy should be forced to ask themselves – was it worth it? It would be difficult for any right-thinking person to answer yes. Indeed the biggest loser has already been declared: the very community the business organization is mandated to serve. Observers have watched since 2008 – as this runaway issue gathered steam – when businessman Larry Anschell vowed to withhold his BIA dues from the city over what he considered shoddy business practices. And the community took notice even more closely last year, as the issue seemed to go off the rails, with Anschell announcing a ‘new’ group as the BIA’s rightful directorship (whiterockbia.ca), and, months later, the ‘old’ directors (whiterockbia.com) filing suit. The wreckage finally came to a grinding halt in B.C. Supreme Court last week, with Justice Robert Crawford deciding it is time for the two factions to resolve the impasse once and for all by having a new election of officers – and get on with the business of promoting commerce in the city. It’s worth noting that neither side came out unscathed. While Crawford showed he had taken careful note of Anschell’s reasons for requisitioning a meeting last July, the justice stopped far short of recognizing his group as the official board. And neither Crawford nor another justice (in a related hearing the day before) acceded to Anschell’s demands to freeze assets or make their disposition subject to the outcome of the case. But neither did Crawford endorse the board that was voted in at an ‘old’ BIA-dominated AGM on Jan. 18. Showing the proverbial wisdom of Solomon, Crawford saw there was no way out of this mess without wiping the slate clean. It’s regrettable – and indicative of a failure within the city – that it took this long for some august body to step in and stop this farce. It is hoped the March 31 election will get a seriously derailed BIA back on the tracks and acting solely for the benefit of sorely-tried White Rock businesses and residents.

101 responding the words the same, as Stephen Harper so quickly acquiesced, or do we in this new-found patriotism rewrite the old songs or pen new ones? O Canada at least, is short and sweet. The Maple Leaf Forever sounds more like something a choir should sing, but could it be jazzed up to make it a cult hit similar to Lee Greenwood’s I’m Proud to be an American? One thing is certain, Canadians now do want to sing out their pride. And despite its minor flaws in “equality,” our anthem is a singable tune. In fact, our spontaneous renditions so impressed some of our visitors that I read about a woman in Virginia who is now subconsciously whistling O Canada. Sort of like those incessant jingles that get stuck in your head and you can’t stop playing them over and over no matter what you do. So if we want to keep our national pride humming along, and keep it alive in our children, then perhaps we need to return to the days when, each morning before classes start, kids in every grade began the day singing O Canada. If that rankles sensibilities among some teachers, so what. Let’s keep Canadian pride foremost, with the flag before our eyes and the anthem on all lips within this great nation. It beats whistlin’ Dixie. Mark Rushton writes for the Abbotsford News, sister paper to the Peace Arch News.

Locals need a proper venue Editor: There’s no room at the inn. The 2010 Olympics Torch Relay celebrations proved once again there is no venue in the White Rock/South Surrey area that can accommodate the number of people that like to participate. I was a volunteer serving at the pancake breakfast. What a schemozzle! Tables and chairs were crowded together, and the firemen couldn’t keep up with the demand. South Surrey/White Rock needs a large meeting room/area. White Rock turned down the proposition to build a hotel on 16 Avenue. Too bad. One is desperately needed. Another hotel is not needed near King George Highway and 8 Avenue; it should be built near 16 Avenue and 152 Street, convenient to transportation, restaurants and shopping. I belong to the Vancouver Jazz Society. A few years ago, they used to meet at the hotel on King George until this became untenable. Now they hold their festival at the hotel in Guildford. I also belong to the White Rock Jazz Society, who moved from the King George hotel to the Crescent Legion on 128 Street. This location has a bar, a dance floor, and they try to be accommodating, but the ceiling is low and the acoustics are not good. When both groups hold a minifestival, they use the Austrian Club in Richmond, as there is nothing suitable in this area. I can only assume there are other groups that can’t find suitable meeting space in this area. Let’s not let another opportunity to improve this area go by – let’s get this hotel in the centre of our business area. E. Burton, Surrey

steeply pitched roof at night, in the rain with wind blowing like that, was more than a little above and beyond the call of duty. Fortunately, the young man got down safely. When one thinks of what duties constitute a firefighter’s job, the foregoing example would not likely come to mind. Nonetheless, our council is getting prepared to contract those services out. They could do this without letting the public know in advance, and only announce it after the contract is signed, as they did with the police dispatch services. Morever, their decision to do so could come very soon, as they continue to have secret meetings on a weekly basis. We had better hope this group is good at contract preparation, or that Surrey is generous and understanding if some requirements are left out. How do you cover the foregoing example in a contract? What happens if the Surrey fire captain on duty doesn’t think that sort of activity is included in the contract? Who is going to negotiate on the part of the White Rock resident at midnight? The city manager? Council? Good luck. I understand council has started a process of sorts. They could spare us a lot of pain by just saying no to contracting out fire protection now. If they are inclined to say yes, then they had better not do so without a referendum. It sure as heck wasn’t in anybody’s campaign literature. Wayne Baldwin, White Rock

Pamphlets out of print at last Editor: Well, it’s finally happened. Someone in federal politics has finally taken the initiative to put an end to the propaganda pamphlets that had been filling up our mailboxes – and recycling bins. A motion passed this week to eliminate the so-called “10 percenters.” Unfortunately, MP Russ Hiebert (South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale) along with the rest of the Conservative cabinet, voted against this motion. These pamphlets were costing an estimated $10 million per year, and had steadily risen since 2006 from $5 million per year. Wanton waste. I ask Hiebert to defend his vote, publicly. I ask why he feels these pamphlets are a necessity when this government has asked all Canadians to tighten their own belts. I suppose Hiebert would also support the more than $50 million being spent on advertising the “Economic Action Plan.” Advertising. Unless the Conservatives are trying to increase employment and the GDP through a strategy of becoming the world’s leading power in the advertising industry, I don’t see any benefit whatsoever of this further waste of my tax dollars. Mr. Hiebert, please stop wasting

my money telling me how good you think you’re doing. Graham Wood, White Rock

West should be its own nation An open letter to Prime Minister Stephen Harper. During the Olympics, you said Canadians are very patriotic and that they were just looking for the opportunity to show patriotism. They showed that as best as they could during the gold medal curling match between Canada and Norway. During the match, thousands of spectators rose and sang O Canada, and this caused the Canadian team to stop the match until the crowd finished singing. You will note they sang our national song in English only, not in the English-French version. Western Canadians, as an example, cannot truly show patriotism until you declare western Canada – the four western provinces plus three territories – a nation, just as you declared the Québécois a nation. You need to create a total of four more nations – the west, the nations of Ontario, Quebec proper and the Maritimes – so that Canada becomes a nation of six nations and does not continue to remain a nation of two nations.

Fire contract better be good Editor: We can only hope White Rock’s CPR council is good at writing very comprehensive, airtight contracts. The following anecdote will illustrate what I mean. About midnight last week, I was roused out of bed by the rumble of a large diesel engine. Looking out, I could see a fire truck idling in front of my neighbour’s house. There were firefighters shining flashlights at the roof next to them where a contractor had started that day. Building materials had blown off and hit my neighbour’s house. As I watched, two firefighters carried a sheet of plywood around to the side of the house. The wind was blowing hard. In the morning, we found that a second sheet had been blown clear over most of my neighbour’s roof, and landed next to our property line – a distance of over 60 feet. As I watched, a firefighter climbed onto the two-storey roof to secure building materials. To climb onto a

The often-traumatic experience of a hospital stay is eased thanks to caring Peace Arch staff, say letter writers.

Tender loving care appreciated Editor: I recently spent two weeks in Peace Arch Hospital on the second floor. Had it not been for the excellent nursing care, the experience would have been unbearable. On the second floor the wards are filled and nurses constantly busy, but always pleasant. Most crises seem to occur in the dead of night, when one would simply rather give up. I was not allowed to give up. My marvelous night nurse calmly and efficiently did what had to be done, explaining the process quietly so that I could not give up. Other nights, feeling cold, shaky and miserable, my other heroine took time to give me wonderful back massages after which being wrapped with a heated sheet was simply bliss. I shall never forget the care I received from those nurses.

There are many changes being made in the medical world. It is hoped nurses will continue to look after patients efficiently and effectively, but with TLC, which is so important to one’s recovery. Phyllis Hodges, White Rock Q My wife of 64 years got sick earlier this month and ended up in the ICU ward at Peace Arch Hospital. If I am lucky enough to have this letter published, I would like to say how grateful I am to have friends who have been very helpful and kind. As for those people in the ICU, they are the finest people I have met. Thank you, doctor, and all you girls. More people like you would make this a wonderful world. P.S. My wife is getting better.

Easter Event

Since the cellphone ban has been in place, drivers in Surrey and Delta have been assessed tickets totalling more than $21,000 in fines.

Ends March 21

File photo

Dozens of drivers caught using cell phones on road Despite repeated warnings, tons of news coverage and a onemonth grace period, at least 130 drivers in Surrey and Delta either didn’t get or chose to ignore the message about the ban on using handheld cellphones while driving. Police in Surrey and Delta handed out more than $21,000 in tickets during February, the first month of the new drivingwhile-distracted regulations in B.C. that fine people $167 for

driving while using a handheld cellphone. Drivers caught texting or emailing are also subject to three penalty points on their driving licence. In Surrey, where officers issued more than 70 tickets during the month, it wasn’t hard to find offenders. One RCMP officer on patrol caught two people texting at red lights in one day. In Delta, where 59 people were

fined, police were writing as many as five tickets a day. The new law came into effect Jan. 1, prohibiting the use of handheld cellphones and other communication or entertainment devices while driving in B.C. The province, ICBC and police teamed up to educate drivers about the new law through radio, television and newspaper campaigns. Police also set up road checks to tell motorists about the change.

news Surrey district left with $12-million budget shortfall

Schools facing cutbacks Sheila Reynolds Black Press

There will still be painful cuts.

The Surrey School District is The district had been anticipat- facing a deficit of roughly $12 ing a shortfall of between $15 million for the 2010-11 year. and $17 million for the 201011 school year, just to maintain costs $600,000 annually.

She noted the province set aside negotiated by Victoria. That helped, said McNally, but $13 million for school districts the provincial government still facing a continued and significant drop in stuhas not covered the dent numbers, but teachers’ pension ❝We’re faced with nothing extra for plan (which will cost Surrey $3.6 making cuts to staff and the few districts million) or Medi- programs none of us where enrolment is increasing. cal Services Plan want to make.❞ “They continue increases (worth a Laurae McNally to provide a bufhalf-million dolBoard chairperson fer grant for those lars for Surrey). districts where There’s also the carbon action initiative ($1 mil- enrolment is declining and not lion) and a government-imposed to those of us who are growing,” student tracking system which McNally said.

It’s anticipated the number of kids attending Surrey schools will rise by another 1,250 this fall. The province, McNally added, is also “continuing not to recognize” the cost of portables, which comes directly out of the district’s operating budget. Surrey hasn’t had any new building money since 2005 and recently had to approve a $2-million contract to bring 20 new portables for students at overcrowded schools. District staff and trustees will now proceed with budget discussions, the result of which will be made public in May. It is illegal to submit a deficit budget to Victoria. “We’re faced with making cuts to staff and programs none of us want to make,” said McNally.

Revisiting spring break Surrey students are just coming to the end of their two-week spring break. An extra week was added to the usual one-week break this year in an effort to save $1 million and help balance this year’s budget. It was made possible by slightly increasing the daily minutes of instruction. McNally said Tuesday it was a “one-time only” decision and the board will revisit the length of spring break during budget discussions for the coming school year.

Pickton appeal in court Jeff Nagel Black Press

Prosecutors will argue this month that Robert Pickton’s convictions for killing six Vancouver missing women should stand even if he did not act alone, but as one part of a “murderous joint venture.” The Supreme Court of Canada will hear the Port Coquitlam pig farmer’s appeal March 26, where defence lawyers hope to overturn his convictions and force a new trial. The Crown’s final written arguments in the appeal shine a brighter spotlight on the multiplekillers scenario, citing Pickton’s own recorded words that he was the “head honcho” but that “there were a lot of other people involved too.” The prosecution filing also repeats Pickton’s assertions that another woman who frequently visited the farm was responsible for some of the killings, and noted defence efforts to tie her and another man to the crimes. The Crown maintains Pickton was the “one constant” and that none of the evidence of other killers severs his “dominant and unmistakeable connection” to each victim. A jury found Pickton guilty in 2007 on six counts of seconddegree murder in the deaths of Sereena Abotsway, Mona Wilson, Andrea Joesbury, Brenda Wolfe, Georgina Papin and Marnie Frey. He was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years. Pickton was arrested in 2002 after 60 women, most sex-trade workers, went missing over several years from the drug-ravaged Downtown Eastside. Bone fragments, blood and DNA were found in an extensive search of the farm. Nobody else has ever been charged. The B.C. Court of Appeal last year upheld the verdict in a 2-1 split ruling that gave Pickton an automatic right to appeal to the country’s high court. The crux of the Supreme Court appeal rests on defence claims the re-instruction of

could see Pickton tried again on all 26 murder charges against him. He had only been tried on the first six, because the case was split to make it more manageable. Some families of the other 20 dead women hope a re-trial on all counts would deliver justice for their loved ones. RCMP last year recommended Pickton be charged with six more murders, but prosecutors have so far declined to lay new charges. The six additional women who police tie to Pickton include Yvonne Marie Boen and Jacqueline Murdock, both of Surrey, and Dawn Crey, who has family in Chilliwack. Any decisions on a new trial will wait until the Supreme Court decision, Crown spokesman Neil McKenzie said.

One-of-a-kind pianos have Peninsula touch

ust months ago, two very unique pianos passed through the doors of Rod Verhnjak’s shop. Amidst the technician’s shelves of glues, tools and boxes of various odds and ends stood the same Steinways now in Steinway and Sons’ prestigious Art Case Collection, the most notable piece from which was decorated by English artist Alma Tadema in the late 1800s and sold in a 1997 auction for $1.2 million.

Verhnjak Pianos was commissioned to work on both of the instruments last year before they were unveiled to the public. While at the South Surrey shop, they were dismantled, sanded, detailed and coated in a protective lacquer. Kuniisii stayed at Verhnjak’s Pianos for five weeks near the beginning of last summer, while The Way of Our Ancestors took nine days worth of work at the end of November. Verhnjak – who took over the family business after his father passed away six years ago – said he has had a passion for working on pianos since he was a kid, having grown up and spent many

business New restaurant De Dutch Pannekoek House Restaurants Inc. launched its newest location in Grandview Corners last month, marking the first of several scheduled to open this year. “We are so pleased to start the string of this year’s new restaurant openings with our new location in the South Surrey area, which is a young, vibrant community experiencing such positive and steady growth,” De Dutch president Bill Waring said in a release. The restaurant officially opened its doors Feb. 12 at 10-2433 161A St. Franchisee and Surrey resident Michelle Kendall said she has received a warm welcome from the community. “The process of opening a new restaurant has most certainly been challenging with a lot of hard work and long hours, but the whole De Dutch team and system provided a foundation of support, guidance and encouragement all along the way that has given me confidence as a new businesswoman to go all the way with this new venture.” De Dutch, founded 35 years ago, has 19 locations in B.C.’s Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island, Fraser Valley, Okanagan and Cariboo.

Fundraising fest Businesses in South Point Annex Mall have come together to host a day of festivities in support of Semiahmoo House Society. From noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 27, stores in the 2990 152 St. complex will have special offerings such as games, giveaways, face painting and free samplings to raise money for the society, which provides support for people with disabilities and their families. “We just wanted to have some fun and just raise money for a good cause,” Cobs Bread owner Kiran Behl said. Each store will have its own promotions, such as Cobs donating $1 from the sale of every bag of hot cross buns; Subway donating proceeds from cookie sales; and Seven Seas holding a wine and fondue tasting. Behl said she hopes to more than double the $500 raised last year, as well as host the event every month, each time supporting a different charity.

Seeking stars Following auditions for Star of the Sea Idol earlier this month – which saw more than 30 Star of the Sea parishioners try out – the chosen six finalists will now vie for the competition’s top spot in an April 17 performance. Finalists were chosen for each age category (10-11; 12-14; 15-19; 20-49; 50-59; and 60 and over) and sing a variety of styles, including barbershop music and rap. The winner – who will receive a studio recording session – will be chosen at an April 17 dance, featuring live music from the Austin Kawa Band. Proceeds from the event will help purchase musical instruments and complete the sound system for the new fine arts room at Star of the Sea Catholic School. “It’s a chance for all ages to have some fun together, dance a little and of course vote for their favourite act,” said school music teacher Evon Olsen, who organized the competition in its inaugural year. “We wanted to host an event that would highlight the Godgiven gifts of SOS parishioners, and we were not disappointed.” Tickets go on sale March 27. For more information, email Angela at avclarke@shaw.ca

Earth Hour has grown from being a single event in Sydney, Australia in 2007, to become the largest environmental action in human history. This year, more than one billion people in more than 100 countries around the world are expected to participate. Last year, White Rock’s energy use dropped 1.4% during Earth Hour. To learn more about how you can participate in Earth Hour and reduce your greenhouse gas emissions, visit www.earthhourcanada.org.

PUBLIC INFORMATION MEETING Tree Management The City of White Rock is considering the adoption of a new Tree Management Bylaw No. 1831 to regulate the conservation, removal and replacement of trees throughout the entire city. In addition, Council is developing a Council Policy for Tree Management on City Lands. Both the bylaw and the policy are designed to protect mature healthy trees where possible, and provide for replacement when not possible. The objective is to achieve a greater number of healthy trees for the betterment of the community. Council initially presented the draft Tree Management Bylaw at two public meetings held in August and September 2009. A questionnaire was made available to the public at these meetings as well as posted on the City’s website. Feedback obtained through the public meetings and the questionnaire resulted in amendments to the original draft bylaw as well as the development of a Council Policy. A public meeting will be held on Wednesday April 7, 2010 to gather input from the community on the changes made to the proposed bylaw since the initial two public meetings. It will also gather public input on the proposed Council Policy for Tree Management on City Lands. At this meeting, there will be a presentation of the key points as well as a question and answer period. Tree Management Bylaw Public Information Meeting Wednesday April 7, 2010 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. City Hall (Council Chambers) 15322 Buena Vista Avenue White Rock, BC V4B 1Y6 For more information or to view the proposed bylaw, please visit the City’s website at www.city.whiterock.bc.ca.

arts & entertainment …on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Creativity abound with local authors’ latest releases Alex Browne Arts Reporter

Once upon a time, not so very long ago, books by local authors were few and far between, mostly self-published and – though often worthy – frequently undermined by amateurish printing and binding. How much has changed. Even a handful of the many books that have crossed our Peace Arch News desks recently demonstrate that Semiahmoo Peninsula-based authors are an increasingly creative group. And thanks to rapid developments in printing and publishing – and in no small measure to the authors’ own promotional efforts – their books are becoming easier to find, and most importantly, purchase.

Contributed photos

Recently released works by local authors. With the rise of internet marketing and distribution and strategies such as on-demand printing, the lines between self-published works and those under an imprint have become blurred. As publishing overheads fall, authors are once again active partners in

their own destinies. Even the following small roundup of recently produced books should indicate there is a wide variety of writing available from authors in our neighborhood – for more information, visit the websites or, better still, ask at your local bookstore. ••• Cover of Darkness by Kaylea Cross, Wild Rose Press (www.kayleacross.com) “Bryn thrashed against her captor’s hold, tried to bite his hand as he wrapped her wrists with duct tape behind her. He swore and cuffed her. Her head snapped sideways, the sting making her eyes water. He’d sat on her to bind her ankles, and now he jammed a knee in the small of her back and hog-tied her

limbs together. She screamed in outrage, but he slapped a piece of tape across her mouth, leaving her to suck air through her flaring nostrils...” Kaylea Cross (pen name of local writer and massage therapist Kari Walker) has a fine touch with feverish thrillers – her first novel, Out Of Her League, with its Peninsula women’s softball league background, and a stalker plot adding impetus to developing romance and steamy sex scenes, won her a Romance Writers of America Laurel Wreath award for best romantic suspense of 2009. She’s clearly in good form with Cover Of Darkness, her second foray into the updated bodice-ripper genre, which plunges hero see page 22 Ginny Dunnill stars as Belle in Earl Marriott Secondary’s production of the Disney classic Beauty and the Beast.

Classic brought to life Alex Browne

Arts Reporter

eauty and the Beast is coming – and I don’t mean the re-release of the Disney family favourite on DVD due later this year. Starting April 14, Earl Marriott Secondary’s Wheelhouse Theatre will be the venue for a flesh-andblood, live-action version of the much loved classic, in which Alan Menkin, Howard Ashman and Tim Rice’s score, and Linda Wolverton’s script, will be brought to vivid life through the energy and talent of Marriott’s theatre students, plus the technical ingenuity of teachers, parents and alumni under the direction of theatre teacher Candace Radcliffe. The show will have 7:30 p.m. performances April 14-17 and 21-24, plus a 1 p.m. matinee on Saturday, April 24. “We’ve put in a matinee, which we’ve never done before, but we thought it would be good for such a family-oriented, kid-friendly show,” said Radcliffe. “We would have done more but it’s a very demanding show for our cast and orchestra. They’re doing nine shows, including the matinee, plus two elementary school outreach shows, which sold out within a couple of hours of being offered.” With a cast of 37, and a full range of movie-style magic that

Alex Browne photo

must be undertaken in stage terms, the familiar fairy tale of the romance between the spirited French girl, Belle, and the tortured, misunderstood ‘Beast’ – plus his retinue of servants who have been turned into supposedly inanimate objects – would seem to be a most ambitious choice for the school. “Everybody I’ve talked to has

said ‘that’s so ambitious’ but I didn’t see it that way,” Radcliffe said. “Maybe it’s just my naivete, or my child-like faith in the magic of fairy tales. I love this show. When the movie came out in ’91, I was an adult, but I just loved it. “I didn’t really think about doing the stage version until I saw the Arts Club’s production – and then I realized I’d love to do it at

some point. But it’s definitely the kind of show where you have to have all the right pieces in place at the right time.” And Radcliffe said she wouldn’t have ventured into this kind of production without the backing of her technical and artistic team, including expert wardrobe supervisors, Lil Stewart and Linda Weston, who are receiving

invaluable assistance from former Marriott teacher Gale Smith and a small army of sewing parents. Alumna and well-respected stage designer Nicole Chartrand (Midsummer Night’s Dream) is back to design and construct the sets, with assistance from her brother, former Marriott actor Russell, and their dad – or Team Chartrand, as Radcliffe admiringly refers to them. Another alumnus, Sebastian Galina, is back to guide the all important technical aspects of the production. The key musical element is in the capable hands of vocal coach Bev Schellenberg, who is guiding the cast through some intricate harmonies, and band teacher Rodger Owens, who is excited that the string-heavy score will give a great opportunity to some of the school’s talented violinists. And ace choreographer Carol Seitz – who seems to be omnipresent in local school musicals and Gilbert and Sullivan Society productions – is delighted to have an opportunity to work on a stage musical she has never worked with before. One of the most crucial elements, of course, is having a cast equal to the piece, and Radcliffe said she is most pleased with the overall company and the combination of leads – including Ginny Dunnill as Belle, Tom Watkin as the Beast, Jeremy Lord as the boastful, brutish Gaston, and Sean Goodall as servantturned-candle Lumiere, and see page 22

Wide range of genres explored from page 22 ine Bryn McAllister, daughter of a U.S. embassy staffer in Beirut, into romantic jeopardy and a series of nightmarish ordeals involving terrorists, CIA operatives and handsome Navy SEAL Declan McCabe. It’s a good read for any fan of the idiom – and may actually win converts to it – provided readers can handle the explicitness of sex scenes which seems to have become de rigeur for this kind of fiction. ••• Journal Bliss by Violette, North Light Books (www.violette.ca) “I have a fascination with borders. Even though I don’t like to be ‘boxed-in’ or ‘piegeon-holed’ (or any of those other cliches) I still enjoy adding borders of some form to many of my journal pages. Perhaps I’m trying to contain my illustrations so they won’t run off the page and escape.â€? Violette is well known locally as a mixedmedia artist, designer and creative consultant, and Journal Bliss is an extension of her art-journaling workshops and the kind of articles she writes for magazines such as Creative Home, Cloth Paper Scissors, Somerset Studio, and Stamp It. For those interested in the concept of art journaling, this bright, large format inspirational book gives the greatest gift of all: permission to explore one’s own creativity, and strategies to jump-start it. Full of Violette’s colourful pen, ink and wash drawings and her trademark doodling lettering style, the book offers suggestions and step-by-step techniques for enlivening a journal and making it a unique expression of an individual. Journal Bliss is ideal as a gift for the artis-

Talent on and off stage from page 21 Sabrielle McCurdyForeman as Mrs. Potts, head-cook-turnedteapot. “We all grew up with it – it’s always been my favourite Disney musical,� said Dunnill. “When I was a little girl I always wished I could be Belle, and when I realized there was a stage musical, I thought I’d like to play that part if the opportunity came about.� Costuming the show has definitely turned out to be a challenge, and Stewart and Weston said they said they were looking forward to a hectic couple of weeks after spring break to pull all of the costumes together and make sure they work for the staging and the actors. “It’s certainly the most challenging show I’ve been involved in,� said Stewart. Tickets ($15, seniors $12, students $10) are available from the Wheelhouse box office at 604-542-2181.

tically-inclined, and while geared to adults needing to rediscover their inner child, has many great ideas for children too. ••• Something Like Ideal by Brent Stephen Smith, available through Lulu.com ( www. somethinglikeideal.wordpress.com) “Curled in the doorway, a forgotten soul, far, far from home, I sat. Nestled in my cloak, Teague Grady, the travelling trobadour. I rubbed my hands together for warmth on that cold, summer’s night. My tussled hair, as you see me now, it flowed from the top of my head seamlessly into my beard. The streetlights lit up my face when I turned their direction and I could sometimes see my breath, even though it was July. It was on that night, that it all began to click in my head. I began mumbling to myself a tale, from some past life, of a man who lost everything because of his pride.â€? Brent Stephen Smith doesn’t quite qualify as a local author – he’s actually an Ottawa resident. But up to a year ago he had lived in White Rock for a decade and his family still lives here, so he may be forgiven the desertion. His self-published novel, Something Like Ideal, is a free-form, dialogue-heavy patchwork – a small town in southern Ireland observed through the eyes of inebriated travelling busker Teague Grady. Something Like Ideal is driven by a poetic aesthetic, and as such may not be accessible to the average reader looking for escapism. But with its rich, Gaelic-flavoured dialogue interspersed with Teague’s own lyrics, Something Like Ideal offers riches for readers with an ear and an eye for the unusual.

••• Rendition by Manolis, Libros Libertad (www.libroslibertad.ca) You sit on the marble steps staring as the pigeons fly at you like in sacred formation as if someone orders them to pattern like a crescent moon or a fresh oval bread loaf and you toss a few crumbs hoping that they stop and come like new hopes or as omen for fortune your father said birds landing on your shoulder taking food from your hand foretells long life and happiness Rendition, latest collection of poetry by Manolis Aligazakis, joins other tomes by this prolific Greek-Canadian poet and novelist (in 2009 alone, he published two collections: Impulses and Nuances). It’s obviously an advantage to be the owner of your own publishing house – Libros Libertad, which turns out a stunningly regular series of releases by authors both local and more far afield, is the South Surrey-based brainchild of Aligazakis. But he has no reason to apologize for the quality of his work. His strongly imagistic, and sometimes deceptively simple, style is based on deep and profound musings on the human condition, amid a symbolic context of nature. Rendition is a provocative collection for lovers of poetry that joins Manolis’ other work in providing both quiet pleasures and unexpected epiphanies.

Consistency, confidence key to success for rider Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Last year, when BMX rider Nick Benetti made the leap to the ultra-competitive junior elite level of racing, he expected the competition to be stiff and the travel to be extensive. He was right on both accounts, as he faced some of North America’s top riders on tracks across the United States, and even Australia, where he competed at World Championships. And in the months since, while the travel hasn’t ceased, the competition is no longer quite as daunting for the 17-year-old Earl Marriott Secondary senior. “I’m almost at the point now where I’m in the top three in most races,” he said Tuesday. “But then I’ll crash or get bumped out. There are some consistency (issues) sometimes still;

it’s one of the things I’m still working on.” But though consistency is sometimes lacking on the track, Benetti is sporting a newfound confidence – the kind obtained with experience. Since World Championships last summer – Benetti’s first as a junior elite racer – he’s rode at the Olympic training centre in San Diego, and raced throughout the western United States, from Phoenix to Reno. Earlier this month, he was competing in Florida, and on Monday he heads overseas to Madrid, Spain for his first supercross race. “I feel like I’ve improved quite a bit since (the summer),” he said. “It’s a confidence thing, mostly. I have more of a winner’s attitude now when I get out there.” Benetti’s first foray

into supercross – which features dirt tracks with jumps and obstacles – is an important one, as the Peninsula teen eyes a potential spot at the 2012 or 2016 Summer Olympics. This summer, Benetti also hopes to compete at a much bigger supercross race, the UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale)sanctioned World Championships, which

are to be held in South Africa. In order to get earn an invitation to the prestigious World Championships, he will need to finish in the top half of the 64-racer field in Madrid, or if not there, at another supercross race in Copenhagen in May. “I still have work to do, but I think my chances are pretty good,” Benetti said.

Integrated therapy for a range of health problems of patients have benefitted from her extensive experience, building on the professional training at the highest level, and combining Western and Traditional Chinese Medicine. A graduate of Nanjing Medical University in China, Feng practiced as a physician in China for seven years before opening her first clinic in Surrey in 1995. As a registered member of the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of B.C., Feng offers permanent solutions to common health problems, using a unique combination of treatments to set patients on a road towards a comfortable, healthy and long life. The process involves the insertion of extremely thin needles into the skin at strategic points on the body. Traditional Chinese theory explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force, believed to flow through pathways in the body.

Although the practice originated in China thousands of years ago, its popularity in North America has grown significantly over the past three decades. Along with pain and stress relief, acupuncture can also help with acne and other skin problems, allergies, arthritis, depression, obesity, high blood pressure, menopause symptoms, infertility, sleep disorders and much more. Feng also treats patients suffering from pain relating to car accidents and sports injuries. If you’re looking to reduce lines and wrinkles, but don’t want to take the route of Botox injections, consider facial acupuncture for skin rejuvenation and tightening.

NINA IZA DINNEY The precious life of Nina Dinney began in Oshawa, Ontario on September 9, 1927 and ended, but only in a physical sense, on March 13, 2010 in White Rock, British Columbia. She is ever alive in the thoughts of family and friends. Nina never knew anyone she did not like and respect and, in turn, everyone was charmed by her unfailing grace, charity and warmth. She was one of those rare people who never had unkind feelings for others. She reserved her deepest affection for her family, including George her husband of fifty-five years, her adored daughters Laurel of South Surrey, British Columbia, Bliss of Denver, Colorado and her son, Colin of Houston,Texas and many nieces and nephews. Her endearing smile and her unflagging courage persisted through the long years of grave illness which she accepted without a word of complaint. We are formed by our backgrounds so we should think about Nina’s heritage. Her strongest influence was her mother, Anna, a woman of remarkable beauty and refinement, her son-in-law, George remembers Anna as the most cultured person he ever knew, always open to discuss new ideas. Anna acquired a university degree long before women’s rights were even talked about. Nina’s paternal grandfather was an established architect. And her uncle, Anna’s brother, was a martyr and national hero in his homeland, now part of the Ukraine. Late in her life, when she was seriously ill, Anna was invited by public authorities to return to her birthplace for ceremonies in her name. She was honoured by parades and public gatherings throughout her native land,where public parks had been named for her brother and larger-than-life sized statues of him had been erected. Anna treasured this visit and kept a file of photographs and newspaper columns in which she was featured. However, Anna chose a modest life for herself in one part based on the pursuit of art and another part based on working for poor and unfortunate people. She was a consumer advocate long before that term was invented. Both of Nina’s parents Jacob and Anna Semenoff were music teachers and theatrical performers and producers and from them she inherited a lifelong interest in the arts, opera and classical music and live theatre. As a child she was an accomplished violinist and folk dancer and she played in a balalaika orchestra conducted by her father. Following these interests she travelled extensively. Among her favourite places were New York, London, Paris, New Orleans, Palm Springs and Santa Fe. And she cultivated these interests in travel and the arts in her children. She was particularly knowledgeable about Innuit art and over the years she gathered sculptures and graphics which were described by The Department of Indian and Northern Affairs as the best small collection in Canada. She had a wide circle of close friends who shared her interests. These activities and pursuits meant far less to her than her feeling, shared by all mothers , that her greatest achievement was the creation and nurture and education of her three children who were the great love and the reward of her life. Whatever else she accomplished was secondary to motherhood. In keeping with her wishes a simple Anglican service is planned by her immediate family. She is beloved and cherished and we ask that those who knew her and who loved her keep a place for her in their thoughts without the formality of flowers or acknowledgements. She hoped she would be missed and never forgotten. She was the flower of her family’s life and like all flowers she will bloom again and again. Set a seal upon your hearts remembering that love is stronger than death.

TAYLOR, Mavis Ellen 1918 - 2010 With sorrow, we announce the peaceful passing of our much loved mother on March 12, 2010, in White Rock, at the age of 92 years. Throughout her life, Mavis was respected and loved for her kindness, generosity and honourable nature. All who were fortunate to know her were inspired by her gentle elegance and loving spirit. Mavis was predeceased by her husband Sidney John Taylor in 1976. She will be sadly missed by her five children: Sherrill (Blaine) Nelson, Jay (Florence) Taylor, Glenn (Janice) Taylor, Micheline (Will) McKay and Sidney (Catherine) Taylor. Mavis leaves twelve grandchildren: Graeme, Kevin, Allison, Denise, Monet, Gillian, James, Anthony, Ross, Trevor, Clare and Carmen; and five great grandchildren: Marissa, Spencer, Sarah, Janet and Jack-Harris. Mavis also leaves to mourn her only sibling, brother Wilfred (Elaine) Watkins, nieces and nephews, and extended family members in England. Mavis was born on January 5th, 1918 in Taber, Alberta, to Edith Sarah Cook and James Morgan Watkins. Her childhood was spent in the Dunbar area of Vancouver, and her married life in South Burnaby. She was widowed at the age of 58, and lived her retirement years in New Westminster and more recently, White Rock. Mavis was an active and social person, with many friends and interests. She was above all else, a devoted mother, as well as a good cook, a gracious hostess, an avid gardener, an accomplished seamstress, and a woman of great personal style. Mavis maintained a lifelong membership in the United Church of Canada. Mavis’s last years were spent at Westminster House in White Rock, where she took pleasure in her new friends, and great comfort in the kind and generous support of the staff. The family is grateful for all the loving care she received at Westminster House. Private interment will take place at Ocean View Memorial Park in Burnaby. A memorial service and reception will be held at Westminster House, 1653 - 140th Street, Surrey, V4A 4H1 (Phone 604538-5291) at 1:30 PM on Saturday, April 3rd, 2010. In lieu of flowers, donations to Westminster House, or a charity of your choice, would be greatly appreciated.
