Controversial issue criticized in other Metro Vancouver areas

Garbage-burning plan gets easy ride Jeff Nagel Black Press

Semiahmoo Peninsula residents lodged nary a peep of protest Tuesday evening over Metro Vancouver’s controversial strategy to build a new garbage incinerator to replace the Cache Creek landfill. Just 25 people attended Metro’s public meeting in White Rock on its proposed solid waste

management plan, and none raised concerns over air quality or health impacts from burning waste – the dominant issue at earlier meetings further east in the Fraser Valley. Instead, officials fielded questions ranging from composting to strategies to reduce smoke from fireplaces and open burning. Ocean Park resident Bruce Ferguson took aim at continued landfilling, particularly the

growing mountain of waste at the Vancouver Landfill in Burns Bogs. “In another 20 years, we won’t have to go to Whistler,” he said. “We can use that as a downhill ski run.” Ferguson said an incinerator paired with a district heating system would pollute less than landfills. “We should be building modern waste-to-

energy plants like they have all over Europe,” he said. Metro’s plan calls for new steps to reduce, reuse and recycle to increase the diversion rate from 55 to 70 per cent. It proposes a new waste-to-energy plant in the region to handle up to 500,000 tonnes of remaining waste, as the region would stop  see page 4

Call for backup

Number of shooters still unclear

Police investigating the shooting death of a 32-year-old Morgan Creek man still don’t know how many assailants were involved. However, officers are optimistic that information will soon be athand, according to Cpl. Dale Carr, spokesperson for the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team. “We’re confident, in time, we’ll have a list of individuals we’ll want to focus on,” Carr said Wednesday. Chhminder Singh Gill was shot to death outside his Morgan Creek home early Sunday (May 16). Police and emergency crews responded to his 3779 156 St. house at approximately 12:30 a.m, after neighbours reported hearing shots fired. They found the father of two in his garage. He had multiple gunshot wounds. Despite 40 minutes of resuscitation efforts, he was pronounced dead at the scene. Carr said an autopsy conducted Tuesday did not yield any surprises as to the cause of death. He would not reveal exactly how many times the victim had been shot, describing the detail as “holdback information.” “There are a limited number of investigators that will know the true number of rounds,” Carr said. “It helps us separate the wheat from the chaff, if you will.” Police had planned to interview more than 100 area residents. - Tracy Holmes

Klayne Kozak knows how it feels to be victimized. An owner of Gasland, Kozak said his South Surrey business has been targeted twice in the past month, most recently on May 1 when thieves made off with $10,000 worth of equipment. Kozak knows he is not alone. Other businesses around Gasland – at 24 Avenue and King George Boulevard – have also been hit in recent months, he said. After attending a Crime Reduction Solutions meeting last week, he knows he’s not the only one feeling frustrated by a perceived lack of police action to address such crime in the neighbourhood. But while Kozak feels at a loss as to how to prevent further crime to his own business, he is more concerned about the steps some of his neighbours are taking to protect their property. “I’m hearing story after story of how people are taking the law into their own hands because they don’t feel the system is going to do it,” Kozak said. “People… are kind of booby-trapping their business and they’re not calling police to discipline and perform justice on these crooks. They’re performing their own justice and then they’re phoning police. “Innocent people are going to get

Scott Campbell and Surrey Crime Prevention Society’s Mary-Lou McCausland, at a meeting sponsored by the Surrey Board of Trade. hurt when that starts happening.” Kozak spoke after attending a meeting hosted by the Surrey Board of Trade at Earls Restaurant in South Surrey, touted as “an opportunity for local businesses... to talk about their issues with crime in their neighbourhood, with the key people in Surrey.” Some attendees spoke of feeling unsafe near the bus exchange at 17 Avenue and 152 Street, where concerned clients have gone so far as to ask for an escort back to their cars after doing business. Others simply wanted to arm themselves with ways to prevent crime at their business.

“It’s just making our place a safe place,” said Roop Ghuman, assistant general manager of the Cactus Club. “It’s just good knowledge and information to take back to our team.” Kozak said he went to the meeting hoping it would include roundtable discussions, along with answers as to how victims of crime navigate the process that follows. He told Surrey RCMP’s Chief Supt. Fraser MacRae, South Surrey Staff Sgt. Scott Campbell and other attendees that police responding to the most recent break-in at Gasland gave him “the sense we know who the perpetrators are,”

but that there was little hope of putting them behind bars for it. He said his frustration was compounded by the difficulty he had in the days that followed trying to reach the officer who had attended, to advise him of a neighbour’s video surveillance that appeared to have footage of the culprit. Multiple messages over the next 11 days went unreturned, Kozak said. MacRae told Kozak his experience with the unreturned calls was “no good,” and assured him it would be addressed. Regarding those committing such crimes, MacRae said the  see page 4

property in several of these locations. The current parking arrangements at SkyTrain leave much to be desired. At King George station, a large private lot keeps boosting its rates. For the bloated rate, people who park there must trudge a long distance to find a parking machine. Lighting is also insufficient at night. The Scott Road parking lot is more reasonably-priced, but it isn’t big enough. If a large cityowned parking lot could be put in place near Gateway and/or Surrey Central stations, it would be a great service to Surrey residents. The city must also be sensitive to the concerns of local businesses when it comes to expanding parking. As White Rock’s example has shown, pay parking does deter some customers from going to certain businesses. Businesses should not be punished for locating in hightraffic areas, particularly when most of their competitors offer free parking. So far, Surrey’s more-gradual approach to this issue seems to be working. However, the city needs to consult widely with businesses and neighbouring residents to ensure that pay parking does not put too onerous a burden on a few people.

news 10 appointed to stimulate business investment in White Rock

Mayor seeks economic expertise for city Alex Browne Staff Reporter

Changing the economic climate of White Rock is the top priority of a new committee struck by Mayor Catherine Ferguson. The Mayor’s Advisory Committee on Investment and Revitalization brings together 10 individuals from the community – including people with backgrounds in banking, investment, arts, tourism and education. And Ferguson promises the new committee will waste no time in bringing forward recommendations to council.

“I don’t think any of us are interested in generating more paperwork,” Ferguson said in her announcement of the committee. “We’re interested in generating results.” Named to the committee, which will be chaired by Ferguson, are chartered-accountant David Mitchell (co-chair), Kwantlen University president Dr. David Atkinson, bank branch manager Bob Bezubiak, business and tourism consultant Peter Dakha, artist and entrepreneur Robert Genn, realtor Len Doray, investment advisor Nancy Shewfelt, business development and interna-

tional relations expert Mike Sommer, social worker and community leader David Young (Sources BC) and Homebuilders Association CEO Peter Simpson. They will be joined by two council members – Doug McLean, chair of council’s finance and audit committee, and Al Campbell, chair of the economic committee One of the tasks for the committee is developing a vision for the town centre and waterfront business districts, guided by the city’s economic development strategy, the OCP and other strategic documents devel-

oped by the city. “The committee will be reporting back with specific recommendations on how to generate increased investment in the community and attract new businesses and employment,” Ferguson said. “The committee members bring a broad range of experience and expertise to the table. They’re not only knowledgeable in the local community, but have proven business and investment acumen. I’m looking forward to working with them to address the challenges that are clearly facing us.”

Doctors have told Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts she can return to work on a part-time basis for now. She was expected to take until June or later to recover from an April 23 South Surrey car crash that left her with broken ribs and some internal injuries. She made a brief appearance Wednesday at a Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce Dianne Watts luncheon to mayor kick off the Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair, which takes place this weekend. “I’ve gone to an event today, and I’ll go to a few meetings next week,” Watts said. “And as I feel better, I’ll continue to add more.” Watts said she’s still in a bit of pain and is taking her physical recovery day by day.

Inquest reveals illicit drugs found in man’s system

Officer’s radio calls for help were over-ridden Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

David James Stitt had cocaine and marijuana in his system the night he died, ER physician Dr. Kerry Yoshitomi said Wednesday. Subpoenaed to give evidence at an inquest into Stitt’s June 2008 death, Yoshitomi told jurors and coroner Jeff Dolan he didn’t know what quantity of the illicit drugs the 46-year-old might have consumed – or exactly when they were taken – only that they were identified during a urine screen conducted at Peace Arch Hospital early June 18, 2008. Stitt, who was transported to the hospital after collapsing following an altercation with police outside his Crescent Road home late June 17, arrived virtually lifeless, Yoshitomi said.

“He was not breathing and was neurologically unresponsive... which is never a good sign when a person has been resuscitated,” he said. Yoshitomo was one of 21 subpoenaed witnesses to testify at the three-day inquest. A jury decision was expected Thursday afternoon, after Peace Arch News deadline. The Burnaby court heard that police, firefighters and paramedics had conducted CPR on Stitt prior to his arrival at PAH. According to one witness Tuesday, the 46-year-old father had been behaving strangely prior to police being called. Stitt was shouting religious rhetoric, snapping a garden hose like a whip and jousting at Crescent Road motorists with a stick, Richard Dilworth said. A second witness, equine vet-

ernarian Eric Martin, was on his way home to Crescent Beach when he came across the altercation between Stitt and Const. Jayne Stewart. Stitt was “uttering incoherent things... ‘hell hath fire,’ ‘death to the sinners,’ things like that,” Martin said, noting the comments were directed “into air,” and not at anyone he could see. After determining Stewart needed help, he and Dilworth both offered the officer assistance in restraining Stitt. It was a feat the trio struggled with, even after a second officer joined the effort, Martin said. Despite the struggle described to the court – including that Stitt fought to gain control of Stewart’s baton and, at one point, pulled her to the ground – Yoshitomi said Stitt’s visible injuries upon examination were largely superficial;

minor cuts and lacerations, and welts on his thighs. Yoshitomi said he was surprised, however, at the difficulty he had starting a central line in the patient; a catheter to administer fluids and medication. It took about 30 minutes to complete and was the most difficult central line he has started in his 20 years as an ER doctor. The doctor said Stitt, who had gone into cardiac arrest at the scene, was also determined to have a fever, which is unusual in such cases. Stitt spent several hours in the emergency ward before he was transferred to the intensive care unit. He was taken off life support at 2:40 p.m. June 19. An emotional Stewart told the court Tuesday she didn’t believe any of her actions to control Stitt contributed to the man’s death.

She said she had repeatedly called for help on her police radio as Stitt’s behaviour progressed from unco-operative to violent, to the point she feared for her life. But, according to a transcript of the night’s transmissions, not all of those appeals were heard, she said. In instances where two people are transmitting, “one is normal volume, the other is like they’re whispering,” Stewart told the court. Cpl. Dwayne Croll, patrol supervisor in South Surrey the night of the altercation, confirmed Stewart’s calls had been over-ridden by discussion on another file. The inquest is a formal fact-finding proceeding that may result in recommendations for preventing future deaths. It is a mandatory step for cases in which the deceased was in the control of police.

news  from page 1 trucking waste to Cache Creek. If a publicly owned in-region incinerator can’t be built, one out of the region – possibly at Gold River on Vancouver Island – would be pursued. If both scenarios are blocked – they require the province’s approval – the region would return to landfilling. In other discussions Tuesday, South Surrey resident Grant Rice questioned the wisdom of curbside organic-waste pickup when most houses are capable of composting in their backyards. “We should be encouraging people to deal with their waste at home, rather than collecting it, taking it somewhere and processing it,” he said. Port Coquitlam Mayor Greg Moore, who chairs Metro’s waste management committee and whose city has a curbside kitchen-waste pickup program, said few compost on their own. Moore noted the program allows residents to dispose of not just food scraps, but also bones, soiled paper and greasy pizza boxes – all harder to compost in the backyard. Rice called for more action to rein in backyard burning and residential wood burning. Chief administrator Johnny Carline said open burning is a vastly larger source of air contaminants than the entire waste disposal system, including the existing Burnaby incinerator. Some speakers asked Metro’s posi-

tion on a proposed private composting operation at 12 Avenue and 176 Street, which they said could smell. Metro staff noted the proposal will be up to Surrey council and the Agricultural Land Commission, which would rule on the use of 25 acres of ALR land. Officials said they’re confident new technology would prevent odour problems at new compost or biofuel plants proposed by Metro, but could not vouch for private proponents. “Some are very well-operated, some have challenges,” said Metro residuals manager Ken Carrusca. White Rock resident Andrew Schulz was one of the few in attendance who raised air-quality issues, urging Metro officials to consider pollution beyond the Lower Mainland if waste is sent out of the region. After the meeting, Schulz said he has some concern a waste-to-energy plant could add more hard-to-detect toxins to local air. On balance, Schulz said, Metro’s plan to build an in-region incinerator coupled with a district heating system is a “terrific solution” that might even be a good fit for Surrey’s burgeoning Campbell Heights industrial park. “It turns waste into something useful,” he said. The White Rock meeting wrapped up an hour early because there were no more questioners. Remaining public meetings are June 16 in Chilliwack and June 17 in New Westminster.

Unreported crimes eyed  from page 1 majority are “very aggressive, persistent” prolific offenders, some with as many as 120 criminal convictions. It’s a problem driven by drugs that has developed over generations, he said. And while Surrey RCMP’s target teams have had a “very good success rate” with identifying many of these offenders – through a pilot project with the attorney-general’s office and other levels of government, 37 of 40 identified prolific offenders have been apprehended, he noted – MacRae said there is still a long way to go. “There is no quick fix,” he said, adding drug prevention, education and family support programs are part of the solution. Campbell added that police keep close tabs on known prolific offenders when they are released from jail and act on that knowledge when criminal activity in the area alerts them that

the individuals have reverted to their old habits. Earlier in the meeting, MacRae said a trend toward unreported crime is also challenging police efforts to address concerns. Strategies for tackling crime in each of the city’s five policing districts are predicated on crime statistics for the area, he said. If people aren’t reporting crime, the focus may not be getting to where community and business members believe it is needed. Kozak later said he realizes there is no one answer to addressing the problem. He suggested a network of support to assist South Surrey business owners to work with police could help. “I think perhaps the police department has a lot of information on what’s going on and could pull us together as a group,” Kozak said. “That’s what I was hoping for.”

editorial

Celebrations test grads’ judgment he first signs of graduation tend to come weeks before the official celebration. Young girls shopping for dresses, students studying for finals and fundraisers from car washes to plant sales are held around the community. But there are also the unwelcome indicators, many alcohol-related – broken beer bottles in parks, vandalized property and other remnants of pre-grad partying. With freedom looming and the prospects of university, travel or simply doing nothing within arm’s reach, senior students are likely to mix their excitement with alcohol. And while the combination can be lethal in itself, factoring the operation of a vehicle into the equation is all the more troublesome. According to Traffic Research Foundation of Canada, of the more than 1,000 people who died in Canada from alcohol-related crashes in 2007 – from which the most recent statistics are available – teenagers accounted for the second highest number of incidences. In response, schools continue to take a firm zero-tolerance stand, and there’s no doubt increased measures to cut alcohol out of celebrations have made liquor consumption more difficult. Dry grads are known for strict constraints, with participants prohibited from leaving early without consent of a parent; body and purse searches conducted upon entry and the presence of security personnel prominent. But wherever there is a rule, there is someone ready to break it. No matter how stringent the regulations, alcohol will play a role in this year’s grad parties. Students will get drunk, and many will find their way behind the wheel. A certain number will crash, and some will become injured. Others will die. The only hope the public has to lessen the impact of drinking and driving is by continuing to educate. Elgin Park showed it’s on the right track by scheduling an appearance today (Friday) with Kevin Brooks, who was to explain how he left a party after consuming large amounts of alcohol, and drove at excessive speeds before crashing. His story of becoming a wheelchair-bound paraplegic as a result is sure to strike a chord with the audience. Many of those listening to Brooks’ presentation will likely be faced with similar decisions in the coming weeks. When they are, hopefully those students think of Brooks and what his actions cost him. After all, there’s a whole life after graduation worth living.

The stained concrete floor has undoubtedly absorbed drips of the red wine he made every year and may still hold the residue of a failed attempt more than four decades ago to make champagne. And then there’s the foundation. Last week, before the keys had been handed over, I took one last walk through Joe’s house. I wandered from room to room, taking in every angle. And in the wine cellar — my God, that smell — I looked at the concrete foundation that forms the outside wall and something occurred to me. I strode out to the shed, where we’d left some old tools. I grabbed a level and walked back to the cellar, where I held it up against one wall, then the other. And damn if they weren’t straight and true. Richard Dal Monte is editor of The TriCity News.

Stealth attack on medicare Editor: Re: Short-term patients pay up, May 12. I read with considerable alarm about the new practice for pay-asyou-go convalescent care fees, and the accompanying editorial. Is this a quiet trial balloon for private-pay medicare? I think the public needs to be better informed and aware of quiet changes happening, before they need medical care. All patients need to know that if they are not medically stable to return home, they should not be forced into paying for what is included in Canada’s medicare. Even though the provinces are charged with operations, the prior healthy federal transfer funds need to be reinstated as well as accountability for applying the national standards. There is an attempt by some political leaders and bureaucrats to subtly introduce more profit models in various ways and in diverse departments – health care can not be one of them. It will be useful for people to learn more at www.bchealthcoalition.ca People can speak out and say no. This is part of medicare and if you are not OK to go home, you should not have to pay rent at home plus convalescent fees. It’s deconstructing medicare by stealth. Do they want to bankrupt seniors and make them homeless? Pat Petrala, White Rock Q Re: It’s seniors who pay the price, May 12 editorial. Thank you for your response to the charging of fees to the elderly who, after leaving hospital, stay shortterm in residential-care homes. Reading about it is heartbreaking. Your reply to it is uplifting. Arnold de Roode, White Rock

No love for chaperones? Editor: Re: Band spreads joy in Cuba, May 14. While a much-appreciated article about the Elgin Park band trip to Cuba – including a very touching photo of Spanish teacher Christianne Zurowski with a Cuban child – reporter Hannah Sutherland’s article should have showed more appreciation for those who spearheaded the trip. Chaperoning 73 teenagers on an island nation thousands of kilometres away must be more than a soft palm tree vacation. It has to be a lot of work. In this day and age, where teacher bashing is still only right around the corner, it would have been nice to show recognition to the teachers, and the organizer – band teacher Rob Leader – as well as the parents who went along, for all the work and effort they put into the trip to

Thank you for pesticide ban Editor: Thank you to Surrey council for voting in a cosmetic pesticide bylaw on private and public lands. This May bylaw was the best Mother’s Day gift for our family. Chemical pesticides do not disappear after application: they persist, contaminating our air, water and soil. They are linked to serious illnesses, such as leukemia, cancer, birth defects and neurological problems. In 2001, the Supreme Court of

Canada ruled unanimously in favour of city cosmetic pesticide bylaws which protect the health of their citizens. The decision stated, “Our common future, that of every Canadian community, depends on a healthy environment.” The City of Surrey’s bylaw will protect the health of our children, pets and planet. The benefits far outweigh the frivolous use of chemical toxins on our lawns, parks and gardens. Mel Tomiyama, Surrey

…and more ‘thank you’s Editor: My wife took me to my favourite restaurant for my birthday treat. Denise, the server at Poultry In Motion, brought me my favourite plate, “The Big One.”

I commented to her that it was my birthday. Later, after coffee, my wife went to pay the bill and was advised that it had already been taken care of, and a healthy tip given, as well. My birthday comment had been overheard by two ladies sitting near us. They picked up the tab with a promise from Denise that she say nothing until they were well out of sight. I say a fond “thank you” to those two ladies. You made this birthday truly memorable! Don Dutkowski, White Rock Q Thank you to the kind person who responded to my calls for help on April 27. I was entrapped by a moving steel gate in my condo’s parking garage. I didn’t get your name but I want you to know I am very grateful for your help. Carol Bjarnason, White Rock

The intersection on Marine Drive at Vidal Street, before traffic lights were made active there and at Oxford Street.

Can’t be in a hurry in White Rock Editor: Re: Light speed stalls Marine Drivers, May 14. My wife and I moved to B.C. in October 2001. We were both in our early 50s, and we decided to live in White Rock because of the easygoing, laid-back, and seemingly “no-big-hurry” attitude of most of the residents here. If you go anywhere in White Rock, you cannot be in a hurry. You have to stop at crosswalks for pedestrians, you have to wait a little longer in line at the checkout, etc. My point is, things just seem to move a bit slower in White Rock, and that is the way most of us like it! If letter-writer John Howard doesn’t like slowing down a little bit when he visits our fair city, then maybe he should just stay in Surrey, where he can use his derogatory name-calling on his own city council members. In my personal opinion – and I’m sure I’m not alone in this – those traffic lights on Marine Drive were a long time coming. If Howard wants to complain about something, then let it be about something important, not about a nice leisurely drive along our beautiful beach. You cannot be in a hurry in White Rock. Richard Godfrey, White Rock

fax: 604.531.7977

Lights will encourage speeders I concur with letter-writer John Howard. I have been observing the traffic between Oxford and Vidal streets on Marine Drive since the new traffic lights were installed. The weather has been quite nice since the lights’ installation, and if what I have seen these past couple of weeks are any indication of what we will be facing throughout the summer, it will be total traffic jam with a great deal of exhaust. I’m not sure when city council came up with this idea and how much thought and planning went into this, but I believe anyone who lives along Marine Drive in this vicinity would have advised council that perhaps they install the lights at Oxford and Marine for the first while and observe the changes from this one traffic light. If they insist on spending the money on two sets of lights, then at least consider the lights at Vista and Marine be used for pedestrians only as a trial. This is only frustrating the drivers, and once they have finally got past both these lights, they are going to speed as much as they possibly can to get to their destination after that very long bottle-neck wait. What did the city expect to accomplish with the installation of both these traffic lights? Allie Chapman, White Rock

The economic climate in White Rock needs to change and that’s exactly what Mayor Ferguson is hoping to achieve with the formation of a new Mayor’s Advisory Committee on Investment and Revitalization. Announced yesterday, the new committee will provide advice to Council on possible initiatives to create a more sustainable business climate in White Rock. “The committee will be reporting back to Council with recommendations on how to generate increased investment in the community and attract new businesses and employment,” says Mayor Ferguson, who will serve as chair. Other members of the committee will be Councillor McLean, chair of the Finance and Audit Committee, Councillor Campbell, chair of the Economic Committee, and 10 individuals from the community representing a variety of sectors including banking, investment, arts, tourism, and education. “The committee members bring a broad range of experience and expertise to the table,” says Ferguson. “They’re not only knowledgeable in the local community, but have proven business and investment acumen. I’m looking forward to working with them to address the challenges facing our community.”

The City of White Rock is developing a Large Lot Infill Policy for the east side. A public meeting will be held on Wednesday May 26, 2010 to discuss amending the Official Community Plan to include this policy and related development permit guidelines.

RCMP officer faces new charge A Surrey RCMP officer facing trial for allegedly assaulting two men while on duty has now been charged with a new count of assault relating to a separate incident. On Monday, Const. Imran Saeed was charged with one count of assault concerning allegations of excessive force during a February 2009 traffic stop.

That comes after he was charged with two counts of criminal assault in connection with a May 2009 incident where two men complained the officer had struck them. Saeed, an RCMP officer for two years at the time, was one of several officers responding to a 911 call of a domestic disturbance. The 30-year-old Saeed was

taken off patrol and assigned to administrative duties in the fall of 2009, RCMP Insp. Tim Shields said Wednesday. Two separate trials are scheduled at Surrey Provincial Court on the various charges. Once the court process is completed, Saeed will face an internal RCMP disciplinary hearing, Shields said. - Dan Ferguson

news Lowest number of stolen vehicles in 14 years

Olympic car thefts down A promised police crackdown against car thieves during the Winter Olympics had the desired effect, according to justreleased crime statistics. During February, the number of car thefts reported to ICBC dropped 17 per cent in Surrey. The White Rock and Delta rates, already among the lowest in Metro Vancouver, were unchanged. Those figures are based on a comparison with the same period the previous year. Car break-ins also dropped by 20 per cent in Surrey, and 50 per cent in White Rock. The Delta theft-fromvehicles rate, already low, was unchanged. Province-wide, there were 22 per cent fewer thefts and 15 per cent fewer break-ins, with overall numbers falling to a 14-year low. Before the Olympics started, the provincial government announced there would be stepped-up enforcement with bait cars during the Olympics to make sure visitors to the Games didn’t have their experience ruined by vehicle theft. The Integrated Municipal Provincial Auto Crime Team (IMPACT) planted bait cars at transit park-and-ride lots, Olympic training centres and

Second break-in at Elgin cafe Police are once again investigating a break-in to the Elgin Corners’ location of the Wired Monk. The coffee shop, at 140 Street and 32 Avenue, was targeted just after 2 a.m. Friday, May 14. Const. Peter Neily would not confirm the affected business, but said police responding to an alarm at the Elgin Corners complex found a window of one business smashed. “Looks like a computer was stolen, but not much else,” Neily said. The Wired Monk was also targeted just after 2 a.m. March 25, along with two other Elgin Corners businesses. Police will be reviewing video surveillance from the latest incident in hopes of identifying those responsible, Neily said. Investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information may contact police at 604599-0502. - Tracy Holmes

The use of bait cars reduced the number of reported car thefts. Winter Games parking and departure hubs. IMPACT would not comment on speculation some of the bait cars bore out-of-province licence plates to make thieves believe they were stealing visiting vehicles. “We change our bait cars all the time,” was all IMPACT

spokesman Sgt. Gord Elias would say. Some of the bait cars left cameras and laptops out to lure thieves. They were marked with laseretched micro-dots the size of a grain of sand. IMPACT computers crunched numbers from crime reports to locate the bait cars and surveillance teams in areas where thieves were likely to be most active. Officers patrolled with undercover cars equipped with automatic licence plate recognition technology to scan plates and locate stolen vehicles in parking lots and on the road. “We warned car thieves that bait cars would be everywhere during the Games, and it appears they got the message,” B.C. Solicitor General Mike de Jong said. Since bait cars hit B.C. roads in 2004, ICBC’s stolen vehicle claims have been cut from $98 million in 2003 to $47 million in 2009, while break-in-related claim costs have fallen from $27 million to $17 million.

he sun shone brightly on Hall’s Prairie Elementary Saturday, as the school welcomed hundreds of guests to its 125th anniversary celebration. The garden centre sold out of flowers, the garage sale was emptied of treasures and two large birthday cakes were devoured as the 11th annual Country Market experienced one of its highest turnouts. “From what I can tell, it was probably more well attended than in past years,” PAC president Jacqueline Sephton said. “It was one of those days where it seemed like people didn’t want to leave, they were having such a good time.” The May 15 event, at 18035 8 Ave., featured a food concession, local crafters and vendors, a raffle and live and silent auctions, among other family-friendly activities, such

as dog agility and a kids corral area. “I think it was a fabulous success,” Sephton said. “We were very, very pleased with the number of people that came and all the crafters, and how the events went. “From all our reports, everyone had a blast.” The school’s interior – where classrooms were decorated with displays depicting different 25-year time periods – served as a space for alumni to reunite.

“There was a sense of people being inside the school and chatting and getting together,” Sephton said, noting several local dignitaries also attended. “That sort of really made the

celebration real, for us to have these people come and honour the school.” Despite the high attendance, Sephton said the event fell short of its fundraising goal of $10,000-$11,000 for the third and final stage of a new wheelchair-accessible playground. This year’s market brought in $9,000 for the approximately $65,000-project. “It’s been an ongoing thing now for several years, and we’re a small school, so that’s a lot of money for that small of a population base to come up with.” Sephton said the 80-family school will now look at ways of collecting the remaining $1,000-$2,000. “We’re going to empty our piggy banks,” she said. “We’re going to see what we can do. “We’re determined to get (the playground) done so it can be done over the summer and be there for September.” or

Sharing a classic bond Philip Raphael Black Press

Father’s Day is still weeks away, but a father-son duo is planning to have a special time together this weekend. And how could car buffs Sid and Ted Laturnus not enjoy themselves? The pair are entering the 25th annual All British Field Meet at VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver Saturday, each with a classic car. Ted, a well-known automotive journalist, is entering his red Triumph TR4. And 81-year-old South Surrey dad Sid, a former automotive shop teacher for 21 years in Vancouver and on the Semiahmoo Peninsula, is taking along his dark green 1953 Austin Countryman van – thought to be one of only 10 left on the planet. Just as rare as Sid’s diminutive, British-built van is the father-son entry to the long-weekend car meet, which draws about 600 British cars of virtually all manner, make, model and vintage to the emerald-green lawns of VanDusen. “I don’t know how many other father-and-son combos there are at the show, we may be the only ones,” says Ted, a Ladner resident. “That’s part of the problem of the classic car hobby. It’s made up mostly of older guys.” Younger car enthusiasts tend to gravitate to custom and muscle cars, as well as hot rods.

“SENIORS’ SAFETY” DAY Philip Raphael photo

Sid Laturnus (left) and son Ted are both entering a classic car in the All British Field Meet this weekend at VanDusen Botanical Garden. “Truth be told, my heart is with old cars. I don’t know what it is, but I like to work on them. I find that relaxing, to a point. “I can handle most things, and when I can’t I can ask him,” Ted says, pointing to his father who starts laughing. “We’re not in the same league, he’s in another league by himself.” Sid smiles as he recounts how he rescued his Austin from the previous owner who had it languishing in a South Surrey greenhouse 20 years ago. While that wasn’t an ideal storage place, it did help preserve the van’s interior. Thanks to the restoration work

that Sid put into it, the van has captured top honours in its vehicle class in 13 of the past 14 trips to the Vancouver show. In addition to the accolades, both Sid and Ted enjoy the social aspect of the car meet, and the memories they can stir up. “People come up to me and say, ‘My dad or granddad had one of those.’ And since mine is about 90 per cent original and I let them stick their head inside the window and smell the leather,” says Sid. “And they say that smells so familiar.” For more info about the meet, visit westerndriver.com/abfm

Q

I am very unhappy in my twelve year marriage and am considering divorce. About Àve years ago I got a large inheritance. While we have spent the income from the bequest for the purchase of family vehicles, furniture and holidays, none of the capital has ever been touched. My husband is under the impression that in a divorce, I must share the whole amount of the capital with him. Surely he can’t be right? He is right. Your inheritance has been used for family purposes and will be taken into consideration by a Court in the division of family assets. While he may not be given credit for a full half, the Court is likely to award a substantial portion to him.

Church served as community hall  from page 18 Canada in 1925, the congregation purchased new pews and built a bridge across the ditch leading to the church. Although the building still served as a quasi community hall, tolerance was not unlimited. It did not extend to the White Rock branch of the Ku Klux Klan, who asked permission to hold meetings in the church basement in 1926. And in 1928, church spokesmen asked Surrey council to support their motion opposing Sunday baseball games. Although the church was expanded and rededicated in 1952, it was destined to suffer the fate of its predecessor. The Women’s Auxiliary had been active since 1950 raising funds. Dr. Allan Hogg headed a building committee, and the cornerstone of First United Church at the corner of Buena Vista Avenue and Centre Street was put in place in the fall of 1957. On Feb. 16, 1958, the first service was held with Rev. Peter Kelly, B.C.’s legendary aboriginal United Church leader, preaching the sermon. White Rock’s first resident minister was B. Hedley Balderston. Another early incumbent, Rev. W.C. Frank, had represented the White Rock area on Surrey council during the Second World War. The longest-serving was Howard Filsinger, who retired in 1995 after shepherding the flock for 32 years. He had baptized 1,228 babies and performed 1,477 marriages. For the church’s

anniversary service in April 1950, B.C.’s only woman minister at the time, Rev. Norah Hughes, was invited to occupy the pulpit. And, to further acknowledge women’s leadership, the congregation honoured local resident Lydia Gruchy in 1986, on the 50th anniversary of her ordination as the first woman to be admitted to the United Church

of Canada ministry. Deservedly, for a hundred years, the church has enjoyed a high community profile. Through those years, many local organizations have had occasion to appreciate White Rock’s first congregation for adopting and maintaining an inclusivity concept. Congratulations, First

United. The Peninsula’s bestknown mother-and-son historians, Lorraine and Hugh Ellenwood, are dedicated to preserving local history through the White Rock Museum & Archives.

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.

For 13 years, Feng Li has been helping Peninsula residents feel their best with her practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine, providing integrated therapy for a range of health problems for all ages.

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.

Through acupuncture and herbal treatments, thousands of patients have benefitted from her extensive experience, building on her professional training at the highest level, and combining Western and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Although the practice originated in China thousands of years ago, its popularity in North America has grown significantly over the past three decades.

Kierah Raymond exudes maturity and talent with latest releases

New album, book from young fiddler Alex Browne

T

Arts Reporter

he girl with the trademark blue violin is back. You may have seen Kierah Raymond’s CDs for sale in Peninsula coffee shops or, if you are fortunate, have caught her solo fiddle performances at local events, or down at Granville Island, at fiddle camps or stops across the country. You may have observed the youngster’s self-assurance as a featured soloist or co-concertmaster with the Semiahmoo Strings youth orchestra, directed by her classical teacher, Carla Birston. If you’ve been impressed by Raymond’s incredible musical maturity in the past, stand by to be doubly impressed. At the tender age of 14, she has followed her debut CD Irish Madness – which won her a Canadian Folk Music Award nomination when she was only 12 – with a one-two punch: a new CD, A Fiddle Affair and a book of her ❝I love performing own compositions, for big crowds. Kierah – Original West Coast Fiddle I get more into Music. playing when Even one would be a major there’s a larger accomplishment for audience .❞ the home-schooled Kierah Raymond South Surrey student, who confesses to a certain need for relaxation in the aftermath. “I think I spent most of last summer writing out music,” she said, while the CD took more than a year gathering material, as well as the actual recording and mixing. Raymond acknowledges her mother Jenni’s incredibly accurate ear was working overtime during both recording sessions and the final mix of the CD. But whatever toils and travails went into the recording – and there are usually a few – are not evident in the final product, which emerges as a joyful, high-energy blend of 16 of Raymond’s originals with traditional Canadian East Coast, Irish and Scottish jigs and reels. And never, for a minute, would a firsttime listener suspect that this was anything other than the work of a gifted adult musician, well matched by the professional, idiomatic accompaniment of Toronto guitarist Andy Hillhouse (Mad Pudding) and pianist Troy McGillivray (also a noted fiddler and teacher in his native Nova Scotia). In her warm tone on ballads, and accurate intonation and spirited attack in faster pieces – influenced by her affinity for the lively Cape Breton style – Raymond is a thoroughly convincing artist who makes the

Surprisingly, according to Jenni, all of the tracks were laid down in just 16 hours of recording. “And Kierah didn’t use one piece of music,” she said. Shyly, Raymond admits all of the tunes, whether originals or traditional pieces, had already been committed to memory by the time she came to record them. “I couldn’t tell you how I memorized all that,” she said. “But I do like learning things by ear on piano and guitar.”

Jenni attributes this to early Suzuki eartraining, although noting her daughter has also, through her classical training, developed strong sight-reading skills. “But when you memorize things, you focus on the musicality of what you’re playing.” One of the charming aspects of both Raymond’s CD and music book is that many of her originals are named for and inspired by people and places she knows and her own family history – ranging from We Gavin, celebrating the birth of Prime Real Estate for Savvy Investors

her nephew, to The Empress of Ireland, named for the ship that brought her great grandparents to Canada in 1906. A lot of the little stories that go with her compositions can be found in the book. For all her prodigious talents, Raymond is in no hurry to be turned into a musical star. At this stage, she and Jenni agree, she’s more interested in sharing her music with others than winning concert and album deals. But she is thinking more about a career in music – she will shortly begin her two-year Royal Conservatory of Music course to gain her teachers’ certificate. “Teaching would be more stable as a career,” Raymond said. “But I love performing for big crowds. I get more into playing when there’s a larger audience – I really do feed off the crowd.” Surprisingly, she said she finds taking the spotlight harder in classical music. “When I have a solo with the orchestra, I get very nervous – Carla was really surprised about that. Once I start playing, I’m fine, though. But fiddling – there’s no fear of that. It’s natural to wonder what the actual musical maturity of Raymond will be like – but one can report happily that, in person, she is completely and appropriately her age; a typical young girl who loves to hang out with friends and listen to favourite country singer Taylor Swift and alt-rock performers like David Gray and Coldplay. “On piano, David Gray and Coldplay particularly inspire me to write,” said Raymond, who admits the compositional flair evident in creating her fiddle melodies – which to the outsider seem to spring almost unbidden from her fingertips – is also finding expression in more mainstream songwriting. “I’ve written about 10 different piano melodies with lyrics, but making them completely different from other songs is the hard part,” she said. “It’s so different, writing for piano. It’s hard coming up with a melody and then enlarging it and making it fuller.” Just as she has gathered music from many different sources, including books which collect tunes by other fiddlers, Raymond hopes her book of 40 original tunes will provide inspiration and some material for fiddlers at all levels. “To this point nobody’s played any of them except me,” she said. “Hearing one played by someone else – that would be very cool.” A Fiddle Affair is available from Coffee With Attitude at Five Corners, or, like the music book, through Raymond’s website www.irishmadness.com

Evelyn Weimer (left) and Andrea Carr team up for a comedy sketch entitled Cowslip Corners, which takes place in Saskatchewan. venturing out to a bingo hall one evening and losing their way, only to find themselves in another kind of hall – a venue featuring muscular males wearing very little clothing. “We only have five minutes, so we have to be really funny,” said Sheffield-born Carr, who noted the double act started when they were both booked into the same spot for a showcase at Yuk Yuk’s. “They thought we were performing together, so I thought why not write a piece that works for the both of us? “We ended up doing a benefit

in Vancouver before 500 people.” An admirer of Weimer’s solo act, Carr says she has seen her comedy partner’s natural sense of timing “bring down the house with one line.” “It’s phenomenal she can get out and do this – she’s 70 and I’m in my 50s, and we’re both having a lot of fun,” she said. Both give great credit to comedy-coach Chris Molineux, who made tweaks and changes to their sketch and improved the timing. It was through a stand-up com see page 26

MAR MARTY RTY MUELANER

M Marty has been a resident and business oowner in the Langley/Surrey area for 28 yyears and brings with him over 27 years oof automotive experience. He wishes to extend an invitation to all his clients, friends and Hwy 1 family members to stop #10 Highway by Preston. X 200 St.

It’s not the usual plan for two mature ladies. White Rock’s Evelyn Weimer and Surrey’s Andrea Carr have teamed up with a slightly different purpose – at a time of life when many active women are more concerned with volunteering for organizations, participating in sports, following creative hobbies or enjoying spending time with grandchildren, they’re out winning belly laughs. These days, more often than not, you’ll find Weimer and Carr at the microphone, honing their act in rehearsals or doing standup gigs in comedy clubs like Vancouver’s Yuk Yuks or at the regular comedy night at Port Coquitlam’s Second Storey Theatre. While they started out doing solo spots, a sketch they developed recently won them a place earlier this month in one of Canada’s biggest comedy festivals, the 10th annual Funnyfest in Calgary. Cowslip Corners, as it’s called, was written by Carr, a former newspaper columnist and Governor General’s award winner, to fit their comedy personas, Prairieraised ‘Evelyn’ and “hoity-toity” English-accented ‘Frances.’ It’s a routine about two rather naive ladies in Saskatchewan

Comedy act ‘new lesson in life’  from page 25 edy course with well-known Vancouver comic Billy Mitchell that Carr and Weimer first met, seeking a complete change from earlier career paths. “I used to work for a call centre, but it was so much stress I had to make a job change,” said Carr, adding that performing comedy has made a huge difference in her life. “It really is cathartic,” she said, noting it requires different skills than the amateur acting she used to do earlier in life. “You can use some stage acting skills in it, but you have to learn a

bunch of different things.” Weimer was born in Melville, Saskatchewan – a town not unlike the one in Cowslip Corners, she acknowledges. She said that after retiring from Air Canada after 28 years (“I wasn’t a flight attendant or a pilot”) she was looking around for something to do when she hit on the idea of taking the comedy course. “I’m fit for my age, and I need to keep healthy and I need to exercise my mind,” she said. Weimer’s previous stage experience included writing, acting in and directing a mystery play.

She also admits to being a bit of an activist, and she’s hoping that some of her causes – including saving salmon stocks and preserving farmland from development – can find their way into future comedy routines. “I’m also taking writing classes,” she said. “This has given me a new lesson in life – it’s given me a lot to look forward to.” Carr and Weimer will next perform Cowslip Corners June 24 at the Second Storey Theatre in Port Coquitlam.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Honing their skills Some of the Peninsula’s youngest – and most enthusiastic – football players laced up at South Surrey Athletic Park last weekend for the White Rock-South Surrey Titans annual Skills and Drills Camp. The free one-day camp, which was open to boys and girls aged five to 18 and also featured cheerleading instruction, hit the field Sunday, with players coached on all manner of football skills – from kicking, catching and throwing. The young athletes also worked on their agility

and tackling, by maneuvering around blocking dummies which were set up on the field. Sunday’s session was preceded by a free Titans-hosted movie night at the park; on Saturday evening, classic football movie Remember the Titans was played on a 30-foot movie screen which was set up for the day. Registration for next football season is ongoing, and the season begins in early September. For more information, visit www.letsgotitans. com

Mariners advance to finals end zone Monday were James MacKenzie, who had three tries, while singles went to Greg Makasoff, Liam Bealieau, Ian MacMaster, Sean Einnerson, Hayden Averill and Jake Nasadyk.

Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

With a 38-0 victory over W.J. Mouat Wednesday afternoon, the Earl Marriott Mariners junior boys rugby team announced with authority that they’ll be a formidable foe in next week’s Fraser Valley title game. The Mariners, who had yet to play an Abbotsford team before dismantling Mouat, will now face either Robert Bateman Secondary – which finished first in Abby league play – or Yale Wednesday in the finals. Regardless of opponent, EMS coach Bryn Johnson knows his squad, which beat Lord Tweedsmuir 64-7 in quarter-finals Monday, will be ready. “After (Wednesday’s) win, I saw a little bit of emotion from the guys, which was good because it wasn’t just another win,” he said. “They knew what this one meant.” Wednesday, EMS jumped out to a good start and took a lead before the skies opened up and a storm rolled

The Mariners senior boys rugby side was also successful this week, advancing to Fraser Valley finals after a 24-10 win over Robert Bateman. “It was a really good win – Bateman is a big physical team and the guys showed a lot of character to battle it out and win it,” senior boys coach Adam Roberts said. “I think maybe earlier in the season we would’ve lost that game. The boys are starting to deal with adversity better now.” EMS played Yale in the finals Thursday night, after Peace Arch News deadlines. Roberts singled out Dan Lee and T.J.

The team was also buoyed by the return of Davis Makasoff, who missed most of the season after breaking his collarbone against Shawnigan Lake March 6. He had one try in Monday’s win.

Good start to Valley meet Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Through the first few days of Fraser Valley High School Track and Field Championships, held this week in Abbotsford, Peninsula athletes were front and centre, with a handful of podium finishes to their credit. On Monday, Earl Marriott Secondary’s Kathryn Van Ryswyk was the first local to lay claim to a medal, capturing bronze in junior girls long jump, with a leap of 4.79 m. Semiahmoo Totem Marina O’Keefe also scooped a bronze medal Monday, finishing third in Grade 8 girls discus. In senior girls discus, South Surrey athletes took two of three podium spots; Elgin Park’s Christina Juert won gold, while White Rock Christian Academy’s Stephanie Beck won bronze, just ahead of EMS thrower Florence Clifford, who was fourth. EMS runner Ally Ginther won silver in the junior girls 3,000 m, while Semi’s Rachel Cho was third, and in the junior boys 3,000, Earl Marriott’s Deon Clifford won – by 40 seconds, no less – and Semi’s Jalen Sekhon finished with bronze. Clifford also won gold in the junior boys 800 Tuesday. In the senior boys 3,000 m, WRCA’s Blair Johnston was second – Kwantlen Park runner and provincial medal favourite Justin Kent was first – while Semi’s Declan White rounded out the podium finishers in third spot.

sports Local talent bolsters University of B.C.’s women’s fastpitch squad

Three ‘Gades join T-Birds Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

A trio of White Rock Renegades are set to join the University of B.C. Thunderbirds next softball season. Peninsula players Leigh Della Siega, Cassy Dypchey, along with South Delta’s Sydnee Gendron, have all agreed to play next year for UBC’s team, which is in its first year playing in the NAIA after spending a year at the club level. The team’s inaugural season came to an end last week in Texas, with a loss to Simon Fraser University at conference championships. All three girls played for Wayne King’s second-year midget White Rock Renegades team, although Gendron spent much of her fastpitch career playing with the Delta Heat. “I’m really excited. They’re trying to build the program up and I want to help with that,� said Dypchey, who has played with the Renegades ever since

squirt division. “The girls on the team are really nice, and during our visit we took batting practice and I really liked the coaches, too. “I think I can learn a lot there.� Dypchey, who played third base last year with White Rock, but has “played all over the place, wherever they need me,� in recent years, Della Siega and Gendron will join a UBC team with plenty of Peninsula presence already. Former Renegades already on the team include Courtney O’Connor, Tayla Westgard, Jesslyn Hodge, Lisa Fadden and Kelsey Andison. The UBC softball program, created in 2008, was the brainchild of Rick O’Connor and John Barkley – whose daughters grew up in the White Rock Renegades organization. Canada Cup co-chairman Greg Timm was also involved in getting the team started.

OBITUARIES

LEE, Ethel Violet, (Vi), Vi Lee was born November 12, 1924 in Briston, Norfolk, England to Eleanor and Robert Cushion, and died April 10, 2010 in Penticton, where she spent the last few years of her life. She was predeceased by her husband Glyn, and survived by her sons Brian (Wendy), Glyn (Dale) and daughter Barbara (Dan), along with seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. In England she is survived by her sisters, Edie and Kathleen, and her brother Bob. Vi was born in a poor rural part of England, into a family of ten, and with her father suffering from physical ailments incurred in the First World War trenches, she had a very hard upbringing. Despite being a good scholar, she left school at the age of twelve to work in the grand house belonging to Lord and Lady Hastings. In 1942, at the age of eighteen she joined the RAF as a cook. There were already two others in her crew named Ethel, so she went by her second name, Vi, and used it the rest of her life. It was here that she met her husband Glyn, a sergeant in the RAF ground crew, and they married in 1946. In 1948 they decided, along with five of Glyn’s brothers and their wives and one sister and family, to emigrate to Australia. Since there was no boat available at the time for that destination they decided to go to Canada instead. They all settled in Vancouver, but eventually, with the exception of Vi and Glyn, and one of Glyn’s brothers, who married Vi’s sister, all returned to England. Three children were raised in a very happy environment, provided always with what they needed, and often enough with what they wanted. Vi worked very hard, and at one point was the cook each summer for six years at Keats Island Baptist Camp during the 1960’s. Legions of campers lauded Vi’s simple but excellent camp food. She made more than a dozen trips back to England over the years and maintained close ties with family, as well as travelling to many other sites in Europe and North America. She spent many years living at White Rock Baptist Village, where she lived by her motto, “I can choose to be happy, or choose to be unhappy. I choose to be happy”.

ADVERTISING FEATURE

Highlander Hybrid delivers SUV benefits with few of the downsides By Neil Moore Metroland Newspapers Carguide Magazine It seems quite the contradiction – the Hybrid SUV. Hybrids – in general – are the darlings of the urban ‘greenie’, along with cloth grocery bags, fair trade lattes and David Suzuki documentaries. SUVs on the other hand are the flagships of suburban excess. When they’re not taking the lone executive on his or her daily two-hour commute, these gas guzzlers are loaded up with kids’ soccer teams or schlepping mass quantities of boxes and cans from the local Costco. Can these two interests co-exist? I’d say ‘yes’ as many of the former eventually have kids and move out to the ‘burbs. And besides, not all of us who have shunned downtown living hate the environment. Still, there aren’t many hybrid SUVs on the market. Among them are the behemoth Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon hybrids, the compact Ford Escape hybrid, the premium Lexus RX 450h (starting at just under $60K) and the even pricier (and less green) BMW ActiveHybrid X6, priced at just under $100K. The Highlander Hybrid, starting at $43,025, is comparatively well priced, and for a mid-sized SUV, is surprisingly roomy and can realistically accommodate up to seven passengers. Some have criticized its styling, calling it slab-sided and plain. I like its uncluttered sheet metal. And when decked out in Limited trim – as was my tester for the week – with its big 19-inch alloys and roof-mounted spoiler, the Highlander looks quite upscale. The fully-loaded Limited at $55,075, with its leather seating surfaces, birch woodgrain-style trim, leatherwrapped steering wheel and shifter knob, illuminated entry with fadeout, and loads of tech amenities, blurs the line between Lexus and Toyota. But you need not go all the way to get a well-equipped vehicle. All Highlander Hybrids come with such standard items as air conditioning with filtration, six-speaker AM/ FM/CD/MP3/WMA audio system, cruise control, power doors and windows, smart key with pushbutton start, backup camera and more. There are two upgrades to the base hybrid: the Comfort Package at $47,510 and the Leather Package at $49,790. Comfort adds a third-row seat, rear A/C with climate control, upgraded audio system, 8-way power driver’s seat, power rear door, roof-mounted rear spoiler, 19inch alloys and more. The Leather package adds leather seating surfaces, heated in front. Limited goes even further, adding a 4-way power seat

for the front passenger (10-way for the driver); premium nine-speaker JBL Audio system with AM/FM/six-disc CD/MP3/WMA (satellite-ready and with Bluetooth); steering wheel audio controls; three-zone automatic climate control; automatic headlamps; power moonroof and more. Like all Highlanders, it is powered by 3.3 Litre DOHC, 24-Valve V6, working with high-torque electric motors front and rear. Combined, Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive delivers 270 hp across a broad power band and up to 212 lb/ft of torque. This is mated to a continuously variable transmission. Despite its size, the Highlander launches quickly and enjoys a strong, linear flow of power. This hybrid is no wimp, but quickly loses the fuel-saving benefits of its green powerplant when you mash the pedal. To keep you on track, this Highlander provides an Economy Drive Indicator, located in the power meter, that displays the optimum power 'zone' for maintaining a constant speed or for acceleration. Another fuel-saving feature is the ‘Econ’ Mode, which reduces throttle response. It also improves traction on ice and snow, as the decreased engine output helps to minimize wheelspin. All of this contributes to Toyota’s optimistic combined city/highway fuel consumption rating of 7.7 L/100 km. In real-world driving, I typically don’t get this kind of fuel economy from a subcompact, so I didn’t expect it from the bulky Highlander. After a few days, with most of my driving in the city, I averaged 10.2 L/100 km, which is still remarkable for a vehicle of this size. Not satisfied with those numbers, I put the Highlander in Econ mode, and driving with far more discretion than usual, pulled off 8.2 litres/100 km (combined city/hwy). It’s not a driving style I’m used to, but proves that hybrids can achieve outstanding fuel economy with a little restraint. In addition to its on-demand electronic four-wheeldrive, the Highlander Hybrid includes all the standard safety items you’d expect from Toyota: seven airbags, ventilated front and rear discs with ABS, brake assist and electronic brake force distribution. Traction control and stability control are also standard, along with Toyota’s Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management system, which uses a series of sensors to anticipate problems and automatically take corrective action. A big reason for buying an SUV – Hybrid or otherwise – is for its ability to haul people and their stuff. For its dimensions, the mid-sized Highlander is surprisingly spacious. As expected, there’s not much room behind the third row bench (.29 cubic metres),

but fold it flat and you’ll have 1.2 cubic metres of cargo space. Drop the second row for a cavernous 2.66 cubic metres. You may expect less cargo room in a hybrid, but the conventional, gas-powered Highlander only offers .04 cubic metres more. Passengers in the front and middle rows have plenty of head, shoulder and leg room. There’s a middle position (with shoulder belt) in the 40/20/40 second row, but it’s narrow and minimally padded, with a backrest doubles as a drop-down armrest. I wouldn’t recommend it for anything more than a trip to the corner store. This middle seat, however, can be folded, removed and cleverly stowed under the large front console. There’s plenty of travel in the second-row, and if you move these seats forward (no need to overdo the second-row leg room), there’s a reasonable amount in the third row for two mid-sized adults. It’s not spacious, but far from claustrophobic. If you’re wondering about the recent recall affecting 2008 to 2010 Highlanders, this is for an optional Toyota “tray-type” floor mat. When it is unsecured or improperly installed in the driver’s position, there’s a risk of trapping the accelerator pedal. The company is asking customers to remove it.
