Crowded ER still a concern

Parents plead for answers

Alex Browne Staff Reporter

Peninsula resident Dayna Bowman is still shaking her head over congestion at Peace Arch Hospital last week. The situation was so bad, her 73-year-old mother was lying on a gurney in the corridor outside the emergency department for four days after being admitted, she said. Fraser Health did not comment on the issue by Peace Arch News press deadline Thursday afternoon. Last Friday, some 42 patients were in the department, Bowman said, spilling out into hallways converted into temporary wards by the addition of portable screens. Among them was her mother, Gail, who suffers from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which affects her heart and lungs and necessitates cyclical stays in the hospital to address build ups of carbon dioxide in her system. “It’s atrocious,” Bowman told PAN last week, adding that her mother was fearful and almost “delirious” as a result of being unable to sleep. “She was brought in Tuesday and she’s still in the hallway. There’s no room to visit with patients. The nurses don’t even know what to do – it’s absolutely absurd.”  see page A4

Victim’s parents, Cynthia Allaire-Bell and Wayne Bell, seek help at news conference Thursday.

With the ashes of their son in a box at their side, the parents of a slain Surrey teen made an emotional plea for any witnesses to his murder to come forward. “Please, we know there are people out there who know who did this, evil, cruel act,” mother Cynthia Allaire-Bell said. “Mothers, look into your hearts and think of your own children, because, you don’t want to go here… the murder of our young must stop.” On April 24, 19-yearold Devon Allaire Bell Devon Allaire-Bell and his life-long pal Jack stabbed to death Neilsen were at Frank Hurt Secondary school, near 138 Street and 77 Avenue, having a couple of beers and playing soccer. They were confronted by six Indo-Canadian males, who fought with them, then stabbed them both. Allaire-Bell died shortly after, while Nielsen crawled a short distance to call for help. Police have released video from the night and are asking for public assistance (online at peacearchnews.com).  see page A4

Surrey woman faces impaired-driving charges

Driver seen running from deadly crash scene Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Kassandra Kaulius lived for softball and her family, her sister, Miranda, recalled this week. The 22-year-old was to take a team of young players to a series of games in the United States this weekend. Instead, friends, family and co-workers are mourning her “senseless” death, which police allege was caused by an impaired driver. Kaulius was driving home from a softball game at Kassandra Kaulius Cloverdale Athletic Park Tuesday night when her red crash victim BMW was T-boned by a white Ford Econoline van at

the intersection of 64 Avenue and 152 Street. Kaulius, a Clayton Heights Secondary alumnus, was killed instantly. The crash occurred just before 10:30 p.m., as Kaulius was navigating a turn onto 152 Street from 64 Avenue – “just around the corner” from her home. The Ford, northbound on 152 Street, smashed into the driver’s side of her sedan. Impact caused significant damage to the BMW, which was forced northbound and over the raised median. It came to rest in the southbound lanes of 152 Street just north of the intersection. Witnesses told police they saw the van driver run

Wearing a blue Canucks jersey, she was handcuffed and placed into the back of a police car. A 34-year-old Surrey woman is facing charges of impaired driving causing death in connection with the crash, and more charges are possible, Grainger said. Rob Upton, a director with the Surrey Storm, was with Kaulius just before she left Cloverdale Athletic Park Tuesday.  see page A4

The biggest surprise there was that Green candidate Alan Saldanha, who withdrew from the race after controversy over comments on his Facebook page, still received 1,559 votes.

Hiebert probably has a shot at a cabinet seat, given that three incumbent cabinet ministers from B.C. won’t be back in Ottawa. That decision will be up to the prime minister, who has 21 B.C.

news Ousted MP says victor got boost from India

Dhaliwal points to cross-border politics Kevin Diakiw Black Press

About a week before the May 2 federal election, phone calls, emails and text messages began to fly in Newton-North Delta. The messages urged recipients to stop supporting Liberal Sukh Dhaliwal and instead back NDP candidate Jinny Sims. The content of the text and phone calls wasn’t as unusual as the source: non-Canadian family and supporters of an MLA in India. Dhaliwal said Tuesday that Jassi Khangura, MLA of Qila Raipur, in Punjab, India, had been offended that the former MP had met with one of Khangura’s political opponents in India. Dhaliwal alleges Khangura called in some of his political allies, including Garry Grewal from Los

Angeles, to work against him during the campaign. A photograph is circulating of Jinny Sims posing with Grewal during the campaign. Khangura, reached in Punjab Wednesday, acknowledged there were people he knew working for parties opposed to Dhaliwal. “People known to me were help-

ing her (Sims) out,” Khangura told Black Press. He insists their work wasn’t at his behest. “People misread situations,” Khangura said. Khangura said Dhaliwal was in India last year taking political positions in opposition to his own, but said he wasn’t offended by them. “Dhaliwal was in India for three weeks in winter, and Dhaliwal did a lot of politicking in Punjab,” Khangura said. “I don’t know what the Parliamentary rules of democracy in Canada are, but I’m pretty sure we have to be careful what we do out of country.” In Surrey, there are different claims. Dhaliwal said he heard from several people who were contacted by Khangura and those close to him,

urging them not to vote for, or work for, Dhaliwal. One source, who asked not to be named, contacted the Surrey Leader newspaper and said he was text-messaged by Grewal, urging him to stop working for Dhaliwal. He was offended that a U.S. citizen would be working against a local candidate. And Jagdeep Grewal, a manager of a Newton business, said Wednesday he received a call from Bupinder Sidhu from Toronto during the campaign, urging him to vote against Dhaliwal. Sidhu – a relative of Khangura – is also seeking office in India, according to Jagdeep Grewal. Sidhu called Jagdeep Grewal again and asked him to support NDP candidate Jinny Sims, who ended up winning.

Jagdeep Grewal said he called Khangura and expressed his disappointment that India was becoming involved in the local campaign. “He (Khangura) got directly involved, and he also made calls to the people,” Grewal said, adding he spoke to him for about 10 minutes. “He did everything he can in his capacity (to oppose Dhaliwal).” For her part, Sims said she met with Garry Grewal, who was in Newton from Los Angeles, who told her he thought she’d make a great member of Parliament. “I can’t say that he was actually out there door-knocking or in our campaign office or anything,” Sims said. “He did say to me quite honestly he was supporting me and he wished me luck.” She notes Grewal had supported Dhaliwal in previous campaigns.

Revised timetables seen as short-term solution

Parents turn to Clark for help with overcrowding Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

Two parents are continuing to fight for an alternative solution to overcrowding at Earl Marriott Secondary, more than a month after changes to the next school year’s class schedule were announced. The most recent effort by couple Stacey MacDonald and David Brown is a postcard campaign to Premier Christy Clark, requesting that she commits to the building of a new secondary school in Grandview Corners. Last month, MacDonald brought the postcards to EMS parent-teacher interviews, as well as to Peace Arch Elementary – which is in the EMS catchment area – and the White Rock-South Surrey Baseball Association’s opening-day parade in South Surrey Athletic Park. “The postcard campaign (is) a way of making people feel they have choices, help people feel like they can make a difference,” she said. “We just want to raise awareness in the community because it opens up doors in talking to people, and we just want to see

where people are at.” The EMS parents advisory council has also said that a new school is the only viable long-term solution to space shortfalls. The PAC sent a letter to the Surrey School District in March stating that the district and provincial government should allocate funding for a new facility. MacDonald said the commitment of a new school would make the short-term solution of an alternative bell schedule easier to accept. The issue of extending hours and splitting class schedules was first made public in February when the district announced potential changes at two high schools, EMS and Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary. EMS’s website announced its new timetable in March, noting the school day will extend to five blocks from four, with junior grades in the first four blocks from 8 a.m. to 2:10 p.m., and most seniors in the final four, from 9:24 a.m. to 3:34 p.m. For MacDonald and Brown – who in two years will have one child in the senior schedule, another in the junior timetable and a third attending elementary school – the change

will require them to accommodate three drop-off and pick-up times. “It just means chaos for my life,” MacDonald said. The couple took their concerns to the Surrey school board March 17. MacDonald said they were told that night’s meeting was too full for them to give a presentation, but board members granted them 15 minutes in a private meeting room afterwards. “It felt like a fairly hostile environment, actually,” MacDonald said. “We thought they would want to work with the parents and we were very surprised by the atmosphere. We still haven’t received a response.” School district spokesperson Doug Strachan said it’s “unfortunate” the parents feel that way, as the board took the time to hear their concerns. “They had a very full agenda for that meeting, but took the extra step, and the rare step, of making time outside the meeting to meet personally with the parents,” he said. “As far as a response – keep in mind there was a two-week spring break

Petition makes rounds last month. by the end of that week and a BC School Trustees Association meeting that a number of trustees were at – a response will be coming.” Strachan said the response has been drafted and is being finalized. MacDonald said information presented at that meeting was also sent to provincial government officials, eliciting one response “that clearly indicated the presentation was not actually read.” In the legislature last week, NDP MLAs Harry Bains (Surrey-Newton) and Robin Austin (Skeena) raised the issue of government funding for Surrey schools. Minister of Education George

Abbott responded by saying he had a “good and constructive” meeting with the Surrey Board of Education. The government has invested $230 million in Surrey schools since 2001 and will continue to make those investments, he said. MacDonald said she is now looking to speak with PACs in the 11 elementaries in the catchment for EMS – 15751 16 Ave. – to raise awareness of the impact the new schedule will have, particularly on safety, after-school activities and family and teacher resources. “In the community, people have no idea what’s coming down the line to them.” Despite the challenges, MacDonald said the campaigning process has been positive. “It’s been a super wonderful growth experience for all of us,” she said. “We have a super community here in White Rock and Surrey, and the parents are so… they’re just great.” MacDonald encouraged those affected to learn more about the postcard campaign by emailing emsovercrowded@gmail.com

NECK PAIN and STIFFNESS?

Parents vow to fight for justice During the first two days of the investigation, police found a substantial amount of evidence at or near the scene which is now being forensically tested, said Cpl.

The video released depicts five males leaving the park, some dressed in darker clothing and one in a white track suit and another in a grey track suit. Police urge anyone who can identify them to call the IHIT tip line at 1-877-551-4448 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Her mother was found a bed in a room in the fifth floor ACE (acute care for the elderly) unit, Bowman said, and she and her children were able to visit her there that night. “After four days and three nights we went up to her room and found her fast asleep.” By the next morning, her mother was “markedly improved,” she added. And this week it looked as though she would shortly be able to return home. But the relief Bowman felt at the temporary respite for her mother has not diminished her concerns about overcrowding at the hospital, she wrote in an email update this week. Even in the ACE unit, she said, some patients are in dining room and recreation areas, with no nearby washroom or privacy. “Because of the nature of her condition, this is just one of what will be frequent hospitalizations for her,” she wrote. “I dread the next round already knowing that she faces the same situation of days on end in a hallway waiting for a room.”

editorial

Less influence in NDP’s surge urrey’s two newly-minted NDP MPs, Jasbir Sandhu (Surrey North) and Jinny Simms (Newton-North Delta) and their colleagues, all 100 of them, are in a uniquely odd position. They’ve just experienced the biggest election in party history, propelling them to Official Opposition status. Yet while the party’s popularity has grown steadily under Jack Layton, translating into more seats each election (19 in 2004, 29 in 2006 and 37 in 2008), the culmination of that steady increase in numbers – Monday’s 102-seat performance (more than doubling the party’s record of 43 under Ed Broadbent in 1988, which is, ironically, also the last time the Conservatives won a majority) – corresponds with a sudden and remarkable drop in influence. With the Conservatives winning a 167-seat majority, due to the collapse of the Liberals (34 seats, down from 77) and Bloc Quebecois (four seats, down from 49), the impact of the NDP accomplishment is counter-intuitive. The NDP’s growing power, ironically, leaves it with less power in the short term. Layton can put whatever rosy spin on it he chooses, but his party held the balance of power for much of the last decade, since 2004’s Liberal minority, and will now find swaying the Tories to compromise on key policy issues markedly more difficult. As Layton moves into Stornoway, the residence of the leader of the Official Opposition, and the euphoria of Monday’s historic results subsides, he and his party must prepare themselves for four years of increasing frustration. Prime Minister Stephen Harper has pledged a commitment to work ‘with’ the opposition, but there’s only one reason political parties hunger for a majority – to push their own legislative agenda through Parliament without having to worry about compromising policies and principles to earn a minority party’s support. In this new political landscape, the NDP have only one way to turn – to the voters, who ultimately, after all, decide the MPs who are elected, by what margin and whether they constitute a majority or minority in Parliament. If the NDP works hard to win the hearts and minds of the electorate over the next four years – building on gains made during the most recent election and exploiting actions of a Conservative majority that are almost guaranteed not to please all voters – then their steady growth in popularity may yet have an even greater impact at the polls.

86 responding I don’t doubt that he’s right. And it made me feel guilty that, moments before, I’d been complaining to my girlfriend about having to take the garbage out to the curb in the rain. In previous conversations, Brian would tell me repeatedly that he was bored, stuck in his tiny apartment with lawn chairs for furniture and a small TV he bought for cheap, because all his stuff was still back home in California. And though he ached for something to do – he wanted to go where something, anything was happening – I took some solace knowing that unless he slipped in the shower, the chances of him suffering some kind of water-related tragedy were slim. But now bin Laden is dead, his Al-Qaida terrorist organization has vowed revenge on America – and Americans – and I don’t know where my cousin is. It’s been weeks since we last talked, although I’m constantly reminded of him by the American quarter in my wallet. I didn’t put it there on purpose – it’s just some leftover change from a recent trip to Las Vegas – but I haven’t taken it out either, upon first discovering it mixed up with my Canadian currency. Because every time I see it, or run my fingers over the embossed eagle on its one side while searching for coffee money or a stashed-away receipt, I think of my cousin, who is still thousands of leagues under the sea in places I don’t even want to know about. I just hope he gets home OK. Nick Greenizan is the sports reporter at the Peace Arch News.

Share the peace at 6 a.m. Editor: There is a time for everything, and with our growing population it is in all our interest to respect each other’s space. So, please… 6 a.m. is not the place to have an organized boot camp on the pier. For many years, many of us – young and now old – have walked or run, it is one of the only places where you can see the sunrise, hear the waves, birds – all free of charge. For me, it’s a meditation, to others like church, or whatever. We are there, on rainy, stormy days, and sunny days, for decades. I have found peace and balance there. Why do we have tolerate 10-20 persons running, screaming orders, how and what to do? I’m all for keeping in shape, to be healthy and do whatever you have to do; that’s why we live in a country where we are free. But let’s respect each other’s space and try to be civilized. Many of us walking that early are older. I kept fit working hard and like to enjoy my age. It is like a sacred quiet time on the pier at 6 a.m., we should respect it. Only the birds have the right to screech and thump on our little old pier. Let’s keep it that way – to enjoy it and share the peace. Ute Lutz, White Rock

per cent of the population expecting equal fair representation and service, along with the 35 per cent Conservative voters that showed up. This number does not include new electors who registered on election day, nor all the additional people that will be moving to the area in the next few years, who may or may not support Hiebert/Conservative. I do hope that the MP’s past five years of spin with fear surveys called “householders” that smeared the opposition and shared selective information will no longer be sent to our homes. The numbers for the national picture of popular vote and eligible population voters clearly exposes the truth that the system which elected this majority is one of the tasks that need attention. Pat Petrala, White Rock Q The Conservative party now has a strong majority of seats in Parliament, yet it was supported by only 24.3 per cent of the electorate. In this riding, the successful Russ Hiebert received votes from only 35.5 per cent of his electorate. Don’t these numbers suggest there is something wrong with our voting system? R. M. Strang, Surrey

Teamwork not yet over Editor: Re: Graciousness in ownership, April 29 letters. I’m delighted that Cyndie Richards took the time to write. Clearly the work of the committee has resonated with her. However, it is very important to note the work we did, we did as a team. Our team made many suggestions; some were discarded, some were revised, some were actually transformed to a completely different point of view. Our committee was a diverse group, yet fairly representational as a cross section of White Rock citizens: a tourism/marketing professional, someone from the arts, a business owner, a real-estate professional and a person raising a young family, who also happens to be a gifted writer. To date we have presented our interim report to council, and presented the interim report again to the investment and revitalization committee. We also publicly presented our completed report to council; this report was posted on

the city’s website. Next, we had an open session where we re-presented the report to the public. At this session, various other city committees attended and were invited to give their feedback. And finally, one more public session, the one Richards attended at the Centre for Active Living. Regarding the choices, it is my understanding it will be up to the city manager to make recommendations to council, and council to approve any going forward on this project. This is as it should be. In my opinion, mayor and council deserve recognition for allowing our group to do its work. It would be imprudent to imply in advance what their decision may be. Part of the journey that our group went on was to search for common threads that could unite our community. At first blush it may appear that as residents, perhaps we are not always on the same page – except for one very important thing. We all care about our city and each and every one of us holds a personal and heartfelt view as to what our city is all about. It is that diversity and passion that is exactly what we do have in common. Chris Thornley, City of White Rock branding committee chairman

One country, one anthem Editor: Re: Conservatives, NDPers rejoice, May 4. Now that our incumbent MP, Russ Hiebert, has been re-elected with a comfortable majority, he should introduce a bill in Parliament that would promote Canadian unity by adopting one national anthem that would begin with the first two French phrases of the original French version. I suggested this minor text change to him in a letter a few weeks ago. If Quebeckers know the majority of English-Canadians sing this bilingual anthem with two French phrases in it, they will embrace it, too. We will then have one country, one flag, one anthem! Liat Tan, Surrey

Interpreting the numbers Editor: Doing the math from the election results, I observe that from 58,623 voter turnout, 65 per cent, in South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale, Russ Hiebert took 54 per cent of the votes. Yet he is required to represent all the other people that did not vote for him as well. From the 90,249 registered voters, that would be 65

Editor: We returned last week from spending five months in Mexico and one month on the road. One of the first things I did was to check the Peace Arch News to see the latest news. Well, there were some serious articles, such as the unfortunate man losing his leg, but then I had to go on to my favourite part, “the opinions,” to see what were the latest “quejas” – that is Spanish for beefs – and, of course, it was the same old, same old: the dog issues, the parking, the tree-cutting issues and, of course the future of “White Rock.” So, I thought I had better sharpen my pen so I could add my two cents worth, in case I had something to add. But then something happened to change my outlook. On Sunday morning we went for a walk in Centennial Park. We had no idea there was a “doggy

day event” – we just happened upon these little signs which read: “Getting a dog will probably be the best opportunity you will have to pick your relative.” The signs just went on and on. We followed the path and, each time we read another one, we just said “right on…” until finally we reached the tents were the Rotary Club was stationed. There were all sorts of dogs, of every breed and colour, and they were taking pictures of the dogs and the weather was perfect and everyone was happy and it was just a beautiful thing and it was the first time in a long time that I have felt “the warm fuzzies.” It would be even more perfect if someone said that there wasn’t “one piece of doggy doo anywhere in the park.” Anyways, thanks to everyone who put this event on and we hope there are more like this.

School pesticide use takes hit Show your Mother Resident Melodie Tomiyama pointed to a situation at Laronde Elementary a year ago, where the chemical insecticide Dragnet was used to eliminate ants. Not only were parents at the school given little notification, Tomiyama said, but much safer alternatives are available. “In a nutshell, they did us a huge favour,” said Wilson of the heads-up from the concerned residents. In the Laronde incident, Wilson said, a teacher had gone to a secretary, who called in a fumigator. The principal wasn’t involved and the method used to eradicate the ants appeared to be much more than was perhaps required.

Sheila Reynolds Black Press

After banning cosmetic, weedkilling herbicides on school grounds in South Surrey three years ago, the school district is now poised to “curtail and diminish” the use of the chemical pesticides and insecticides in and around local schools. According to Surrey trustee Shawn Wilson, it was a matter of revising district policy so there is a more formal process for addressing problems with pests, such as ants, mice, silverfish or cockroaches. The former “weak” policy, Wilson said, was highlighted by a group of concerned citizens who approached the Surrey Board of Education last June.

Wilson said Dragnet isn’t used in the district very often – about 12 times in the past 18 months. “We are hoping that the measures we’ve put in place... will really curtail and diminish the use of that chemical,” Wilson said, adding that if it absolutely has to be used, the health and safety of kids and staff will be better protected through the improved procedures. The pesticide policy now includes a process that requires the principal of a school be informed of a pest problem, and the “alert system” to inform parents has been improved. As well, other alternatives, such as waiting until summer months when children aren’t present, will always be considered.

District considering two-week break – again Will students in Surrey get a two-week spring break next year? The Surrey School District is proposing the former one-week break once again be extended to two – as has been done in the past several years.

It’s proposed the extra week be added prior to the provincial spring break, so students would be off from March 12 to 23, 2012. Another day off, the Monday after Remembrance Day, is also being suggested on top of

the five other scheduled noninstructional (or Pro-D) days in 2011/2012. Cutting the additional six instructional days from the school year saves Surrey nearly a million dollars. – Sheila Reynolds

Mayor disputes White Rock’s low rating

Recycling efforts vary less trash will be put out to go to landfills or the region’s incinerator. Besides picking up kitchen scraps, Port Coquitlam is now more than a year into its shift to less frequent garbage pickup every two weeks and weekly compost pickup. Port Moody followed suit this year and Moore said that city is actually now approaching a 70 per cent single-family diversion rate as a result. Most waste can go into either blue boxes or for compostable green waste pickup if residents are diligent, Moore said. “So there really isn’t a need to pick up solid waste on a weekly basis. There’s more of a need to pick up kitchen scraps on a weekly basis.” Some of the numbers in the survey are older diversion rates from 2009, but in most cases the data is from the first three months of 2011. Multi-family buildings weren’t covered – traditionally the households with the worst recycling and composting rates because it is near impossible to determine who throws recyclables into common garbage bins. Cities are aiming to bring composting to multifamily homes as well, but by a more distant target date of 2015.

Jeff Nagel & Tracy Holmes Black Press

Households in Port Moody and Port Coquitlam are outrecycling the rest of the region by a wide margin, while New Westminster and White Rock are among the worst laggards. That’s according to a new Metro Vancouver survey of waste diversion rates that looked at the curbside disposal and recycling practices of singlefamily houses in each city.

Bencze pleads not guilty Reporter Ron Bencze entered notguilty pleas to multiple child sex charges in Surrey Provincial Court Wednesday morning. Bencze did not appear in court himself, but had his lawyer enter the pleas on his behalf. The Surrey resident is charged with nine offences involving three victims. The offences are alleged to have taken place between 2001 and 2011. Bencze, 44, was first arrested in January, charged with sexual assault, two counts of sexual interference with a person under 16 and two of invitation to sexual touching involving a person

under 16. A further four charges – two counts of sexual assault and two counts of sexual interference involving persons under the age of 16 – were laid last month. Bencze is married with three children. He had been a reporter with Global TV since 2004. He was fired last month. He is not in custody, but has been ordered not to have contact with alleged victims or children. An eight-day preliminary inquiry – where a judge decides whether there is enough evidence to proceed to trial – is scheduled for Jan. 24.

No pleas entered in Chadwick case Sheila Reynolds Black Press

A former Surrey School District administrator and administrative assistant did not enter pleas in court Wednesday. Instead, Robert and Barbara Chadwick’s lawyers and a Crown prosecutor asked the judge to delay the matter. “We are looking at a possible disposition, but it’s taking some time to resolve,” said Crown prosecutor Stephen Cooke. “We need more time.” The Chadwicks were charged last

summer in connection with allegations that thousands of dollars were diverted to them from the district. Both were charged with theft over $5,000 and fraud over $5,000. Robert was also charged with breach of trust by a public officer. Robert, an associate superintendent and Barbara, his administrative assistant, resigned abruptly in October 2006. An investigation of Robert by the B.C. College of Teachers is pending. A new court date is scheduled for June 10.

Women’s Place to benefit from May fundraiser

‘It’s the people – we come for the people’ Hannah Sutherland

W

Staff Reporter

hen Sheila became pregnant while working three jobs to make ends meet, Women’s Place was somewhere she could turn for support. She went to the South Surrey centre on the advice of a co-worker, and received free trauma counselling once a week. “I felt supported by the community,” she said. “I had a proper place to talk about my situation.” Since then, the drop-in centre has become a vital resource in Sheila’s life, which has been burdened by mental illness and a twoyear period of homelessness in White Rock. “I wouldn’t have survived, I don’t think, if I didn’t have Women’s Place.” The two-storey house, run by South Fraser Women’s Services Society, provides numerous offerings to women, including ❝I wouldn’t support groups, a have survived, laundry and shower I don’t think, facility and a library. if I didn’t have Sheila has made use of its legal advocacy Women’s services, clothing room Place.❞ and hot-lunch program, in which women and their children can receive a lunchtime meal four days a week. She also outfitted her Surrey home using the society’s furniture donations. Such assistance – combined with support she has received from the organization’s partnership with St. Mark’s Anglican Church – has allowed Sheila and her now-teenage son to lead higher-quality lives. “We have a better lifestyle due to the centre, and I’m sure there are other women who feel the exact same way.” The change is evident in Sheila, who said she was emotionally and physically insecure when she initially visited Women’s Place. “I felt apprehensive when I first came here. I didn’t know what I was walking into.” But the environment is welcoming and inclusive due to the friendly, accepting staff and volunteers, who often greet visitors by name, she said. “I don’t get that kind of interaction anywhere else.” The women themselves have also proved to be valuable sources of information, Sheila noted. It was through conversations with others that she learned about a transportation tax credit and other government funding she was eligible for.

South Fraser Women’s Services Society will be holding a fundraiser to help support people like Sheila (left). Women’s Place volunteer Ruth Farrants (right) fills Sheila’s bowl with chili during the drop-in centre’s hot-lunch program. The centre can also be a place for camaraderie, according to Janet and Sharei. “It’s the people – we come for the people,” Janet said. “I couldn’t do without it,” Sharei added. For 85-year-old Rose, the centre is like a second home. “All the people, the ladies are nice to me. I like it here very much – without these guys I would be lost. They treat me so good,” she said before sitting down to a hot bowl of chili. “I come home to eat.” Sheila still visits twice a week, and plans to apply for a position with South Fraser Concierge, the society’s own business that provides home, senior support and errand services.

She has also given public presentations on homelessness and poverty. SFWSS executive director Denise Darrell said the non-profit organization’s most recent slogan, Voices of Change, was inspired by such resilience. “When we came up with that tag line, I thought of Sheila.”

A lot of the money will go towards the hot-lunch program, as well as the South Fraser Legal Resource Centre, which has been affected by legal-aid funding cuts, she said.

$1,200 raised

Cut for a Cause A fundraising event organized by two friends in White Rock last weekend brought in more than $1,200 for families dealing with childhood cancers and blood disorders. Sarah Post – whose son, Carson, was diagnosed with soft-tissue cancer in December 2009 – teamed up with friend Robyn Cooper to offer hair cuts by donation at Seaside Memories bed and breakfast May 1. Four hair stylists donated their time, and around 40 people turned out to Cut for a Cause, including Carson’s friend, Chloe Hubbs, who received her first haircut. Supporters Lisa Dreves and Moira Siebert also took part, having eight and six inches, respectively, of their hair cut and donated. A number of prizes were also raffled off, thanks to donations by Lower Mainland businesses, including White Rock’s Notti Biscotti. Funds collected – far exceeding the $500 goal – will benefit Balding for Dollars, which is a fundraising event to be held at BC Children’s Hospital this Saturday, May 7. Family members, friends and staff are set to gather at the Vancouver hospital and shave their locks in support of kids with cancer, while also enjoying games, live entertainment, arts and crafts and more. To donate to this weekend’s event – and to learn other ways to support the cause – visit www. baldingfordollars.com

Earl Marriott grad plant sale takes root Saturday Earl Marriott Secondary seniors are digging in, in preparation for this Saturday’s Dry Grad Plant and Manure Sale.

The 12th annual event, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., will feature bedding plants, perennials, baskets and manure for sale,

as well gardening advice, a bydonation car wash, a raffle and concession. The sale will be held in the

parking lot of the high school, at 15751 16 Ave. Proceeds support the school’s dry grad, to be held June 4.

New look for school district Sheila Reynolds Black Press

The lone child sitting at a desk is out, replaced by a new, colourful logo that officials hope reflects the diversity and bright future of the Surrey School District. The district unveiled its updated logo and motto at a public meeting last week. The new logo features an ascending ladder-like pathway with various colours – yellow, purple, blue and green, with turquoise lettering – to represent the diverse population of the district. The name in the logo has also been shortened to Surrey Schools, instead of Surrey School District, “to emphasize a friendlier identity.” The former motto, Keeping Learners at the Centre, which was

adopted in 1999 along with the old logo, has also been replaced. The motto will now simply read Leadership in Learning. Eight focus groups consisting of students, teachers, staff and parents, helped provide input into what the district’s new identity should embody. “What struck us was the overwhelming enthusiasm about what’s going on in this district,” said Bruce Hayne, of Thornley Hayne Creative Communications, who oversaw the rebranding. District communications manager Doug Strachan said the revised logo and motto will be phased in on letterhead and envelopes and other printed materials as old supplies run out.

lifestyles Jessica Leigh Wozniak among top 20 finalists in modelling contest

Earl Marriott grad making waves on catwalk Alex Browne

W

Staff Reporter

hite Rock born and raised Jessica Leigh Wozniak, 18, is making some waves in the world of modelling and high fashion. The Kwantlen Polytechnic University student and Earl Marriott grad has placed in the 20 finalists of the River Rock Resort ITM-NSR Model Look North America 2011 contest. The top 20, chosen from a field of more than 85 semi-finalists, were announced at Ferrari Maserati’s Vancouver showroom April 27. That puts Wozniak firmly in the running for more than $10,000 in prizes, including an all-expenses paid trip to China to represent ITM and North America in the country’s largest model search, the New Silk Road Model look Contest. “I feel really excited and really happy,” said Wozniak, who began her modelling career with a John Casablancas modelling and acting program when she was 10 – which led to photo shoots and apperances on such television productions as The Dead Zone, The Ranch and Sisters. “Hopefully I place either first, second or third and get to go to China.”

Devin T. Gong/devinfoto photos

Jessica Leigh Wozniak is in the top 20 in the ITM-NSR Model Look North America 2011 contest. She won’t learn that until the finale show of the Model Look contest, scheduled for Thursday, June 2, 2011 at River Rock Show Theatre. In the meantime, Wozniak, who works as a barista at Cerealicious

Eats at Morgan Crossing when not majoring in criminology at Kwantlen Polytechnic, will be participating in six weeks of intensive training, including photo shoots, interviews, workshops, fittings and fashion shows.

“It’s a great opportunity, working with the industry’s top designers, directors, photographers and makeup artists,” said Wozniak, an admirer of top model Agyness Deyn, who said she also fully plans to pursue a modelling career

as well as her education. But she would also like to be involved in creating fashion as well, she said, citing the influence of favourite designer Betsey Johnson. “I love fashion and clothes – it’s a real passion of mine,” she said. Other interests for the busy young woman include fastpitch (she’s been in the South Surrey/ White Rock program for 12 years), soccer, snowboarding, wakeboarding and musical theatre. And while it won’t affect the outcome of the Model Look contest, the local public can show their support of Wozniak by voting online in an ITM Glamour Model web vote at ITMModel. com – and viewers of the site and her video can vote every 24 hours up to June 2.

Hike 4 Hospice attendance more than double last year’s

A step in the right direction More than 200 people came down to Crescent Beach Sunday for the ninth annual national Hike 4 Hospice. It was the first time the fundraiser was held at Blackie Spit Park, and attendance at the May 1 event more than doubled that of last year. Participants chose between a one-, three- and five-kilometre

walk to raise funds and awareness for White Rock South Surrey Hospice Society, which supports people facing advanced illness, grief and end of life. “We had so many people show up without pre-registering,” society fundraising and community relations director Anita Colley said. “It was ideal. I think we’ll

probably use (the site) again.” The event was also attended by Surrey-White Rock MLA Gordon Hogg, White Rock Mayor Catherine Ferguson, Surrey Coun. Tom Gill and Miss White Rock Chloe Woodin. The walk brought in more than $21,000 for the hospice society, Colley said. -Hannah Sutherland

CN Rail safety talk at Ocean Cliff Elementary.

Safety on track Canadian National Railway (CN) is raising awareness about Rail Safety Week in an effort to reduce fatalities and serious injuries around train tracks. The national campaign (May 2-8) is also being promoted by non-profit organization Operation Lifesaver, which is asking Canadians to learn about safety measures they should take when encountering trains and rail crossings. To spread the word in Surrey and White Rock, CN Police Const. Norm Witzell visited Crescent Park and Ocean Cliff elementaries earlier this week for a safety presentation. He is also scheduled to make stops at White Rock, South Meridian and Peace Arch elementaries later this month. For the last day of Rail Safety Week, CN will have a presence at the White Rock RMCP and White Rock Fire Department’s annual open house May 8. Visitors are invited to stop by a display CN will have set up during the event, to be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 15299 Pacific Ave. According to Operation Lifesaver, the number of crossing collisions between a train and motor vehicle in Canada has fallen from more than 800 annually to approximately 200 in 2010. There still remains unnecessary loss of life and injury, however, with 79 fatalities and 47 serious injuries occurring last year as a result of crossing collisions and trespassing on rail property. A variety of safety brochures are available online at www. operationlifesaver.ca, and an interactive site for kids can be found at www.olkids.ca

Surrey’s Cadman, Dhaliwal only two in B.C. who don’t qualify

Windsor Square Merchants

Rich pensions soothe pain of election defeat for MPs Jeff Nagel Black Press

Dona Cadman

Sukh Dhaliwal

Stockwell Day

Nine defeated or retiring MPs from B.C. are in line to collect a combined $18.6 million in pension benefits now that they’re out of office. Surrey’s two MPs defeated in Monday’s federal election – Conservative Dona Cadman (Surrey North) and Liberal Sukh Dhaliwal (Newton-North Delta) – did not serve the minimum six years to qualify for what the Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) calls the lucrative “fatcat MP pensions.” Instead those two will receive only $79,000 in severance. But taxpayers federation national research director Derek Fildebrandt said the province’s other federal MPs turfed by voters Monday night or who chose to retire “should find a nice soft landing with their ‘golden parachute.’” Conservative MP Gary Lunn, defeated by Green party Leader Elizabeth May in Saanich-Gulf Islands, leaves with $2.2 million in future pension entitlements. Liberal MP Ujjal Dosanjh, defeated in Vancouver South, leaves with a pension worth $830,000. The biggest payout will go to Liberal MP Keith Martin, who retired from his Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca seat with a pension of $3.9 million. Conservatives Jay Hill (Prince GeorgePeace River) and Chuck Strahl (Chilli-

wack-Fraser Canyon), both retired from federal politics with $3.3-million pensions. Tory MP John Cummins (Delta-Richmond East), who retired from federal politics to head the B.C. Conservative party, now gets a pension worth $1.33 million. Conservative retiree Stockwell Day (Okanagan-Coquihalla) gets a package worth $1.67 million, Kootenay-Columbia Tory MP Jim Abbott retires with $1.36 million and the NDP’s Bill Siksay (Burnaby-Douglas) takes away $732,000. All the qualifying B.C. MPs can opt to start collecting their pensions immediately. The taxpayers federation argues the current pension system for federal politicians is too rich, contributing $4 for every dollar contributed to the pension fund by an MP. It favours a dollar-for-dollar matching formula now used in Saskatchewan and Ontario. “The vast majority of Canadians working in the private sector have no private pension plan of their own and those few who do, normally have defined-contribution, RRSP-style plans,” Fildebrandt said. “Most Canadians have to save for their retirements the old-fashion way. MPs by contrast are guaranteed a steady payout regardless of how investments and the market perform.”

Premier Christy Clark and Environment Minister Terry Lake made the announcement Tuesday at Mt. Seymour Provincial Park in North Vancouver, to mark the 100th anniversary of the B.C. parks system. The parking fees have been unpopular since they were introduced in the first term of the B.C. Liberal government. The environment ministry says they brought in about $1 million a year, of which $350,000 went to general revenue with the rest going to fund park upkeep. Lake also announced a $500,000 community legacy fund that will accept applications from communities to make improvements to their local parks. Up to $20,000 will be provided to selected projects for trail upgrades and other improvements. NDP environment critic Rob Fleming said the removal of parking fees is long overdue, since total visits to B.C. parks have declined nearly 15 per cent over the past decade. Fleming called the legacy fund “a drop in the bucket” compared to a $10 million

reduction in the budget for operating and maintaining parks. There are only 10 fulltime park rangers left in the province, and volunteer organizations are getting burned out from doing trail work that is no longer funded by the province, he said. Only the highertraffic southern locations in B.C.’s system of 1,000 parks had the ticket machines, which charged up to $5 to park a vehicle for the day. In the Lower Mainland, parking fees were in force at Alice Lake, Brandywine Falls, Coquihalla Canyon, Cultus Lake, Cypress Bowl, Garibaldi, Golden Ears, Murrin, Porpoise Bay, Porteau Cove, Rolley Lake, Sasquatch and Shannon Falls Provincial Parks. Okanagan parks where fees applied until Tuesday are Bear Creek, Manning, Ellison, Kalamalka, Kekuli Bay, Mabel Lake, Mara Lake, Okanagan Lake and Sunoka. In the Thompson region, fees were charged at Herald, Lac Le Jeune, Paul Lake and Shuswap Lake. On Vancouver Island and Gulf Islands, parking machines were in place at Bamberton, Englishman River Falls, French Beach, Goldstream, Gordon Bay, Juan de Fuca, Little Qualicum Falls, Miracle Beach, Montague Harbour, Rathtrevor, Ruckle, Sooke Potholes and Sproat Lake.

Believe it or not, your body was not designed to be fat. Until you realize that the great majority of the excess body fat you are presently living with is caused by the less than optimal choices you make (and have made) each day (and I’m not solely referring to your diet here) you will never be 100 percent successful at creating a healthy metabolism conducive to continual fat loss. The truth is that your metabolism is tightly controlled by your choices of food, lifestyle (are you active or sedentary?), and environment (both internal and external). If you decide to place high-calorie, highcarb, and nutrient-void foods in your mouth each day or at least the great majority of the time, all the while living a sedentary existence with a constant mindset that basically says, “I’ll never be lean, healthy, and energetic no matter what I do,” guess what you can expect: A fat laden body with very little energy to

DELTA CHORAL SOCIETY AND DELTA CONCERT BAND

Balsam Street facility latest to be vandalized

Public washrooms tagged in White Rock It would appear there’s a graffiti tagger with a washroom fetish at work in White Rock. Public restrooms in Centennial Park, under construction on East Beach and at the head of White Rock pier have all been tagged of late, director of engineering Rob Thompson said this week. The most recent mess was left over the Easter long weekend, when at least one tagger took black spray paint to under-construction washrooms at the foot of Balsam Street and existing facilities behind the ball diamond in Centennial Park. “He (or she)’s obviously got something about the inside of washrooms,” Thompson said Wednesday.

Judging by the tags, it is believed the same individual is responsible for the Balsam and Centennial Park damage, he said. Graffiti in the pierhead washrooms has been a longer-term problem. While colourful murals inside the building have inhibited large-scale tagging, city workers discover pornographic illustrations added to the mouths of fish in the mural on an almost weekly basis, he said. Thompson estimated it took one worker about five hours to paint over the tags at Centennial Park. While the cost of repairs is not huge, there are better things that the time and funds could be used for, he said.

“It’s just an irritant, where we then have to expend resources to clean it up.” Images of the latest tags will be given to White Rock RCMP, he added. Anyone with information on those responsible is asked to contact police at 778593-3600. - Tracy Holmes

Q

I successfully sued someone on a promissory note and after a trial I was awarded judgment plus court costs. I have now received a bill from my lawyer and I have told him that he should get his bill paid by the defendant as the court ordered. Why should I pay his bill when the defendant was ordered to pay costs?

A

There is never a free ride even for the most successful litigant. In nearly all cases the costs awarded by the courts are only a percentage of the actual legal bill. These costs are adjusted from time to time, but currently the amount of the costs are between 20 percent and 30 percent of the actual legal bill. In addition, there is a further legal process before a registrar of the Supreme Court to determine the amount to be charged to the unsuccessul party. You pay the majority of the legal bill for this too. The only justiÀcation for this policy is that it encourages settlement.

After winning six awards in Greater Vancouver, Ladies of the Camellias to compete at provincial level

White Rock play wins big at festival Alex Browne Arts Reporter

T

he White Rock Players Club has taken top honours in Theatre B.C.’s Greater Vancouver Zone Festival with its production of The Ladies of The Camellias by Lillian GarrettGroag. The play was named best production at the zone festival, hosted April 26-30 by New Westminster’s Vagabond Players. Adjudicator Ted Roberts, resident designer for Vancouver’s Arts Club Theatre, also recognized the show with awards to Paul Kloegman (best director), Lori Tych (best actress), Ryan Johnston (best supporting actor), Pat McClean (best costumes) and Eric Driscoll (best lighting); while festival technical director Des Renard presented Camellias’ stage manager Shelagh Shermann with the award honouring the production for best backstage etiquette. Nancy Ebert (who played Sarah Bernhardt to Tych’s Eleanora Duse in the fanciful comedy about File photo duelling stage divas in 1890s White Rock Players Club production of The Ladies of The Camellias won six awards at a recent festival, Paris) was also recognized with including best actress, best supporting actor, best director, best costumes, best lighting and best production. an honourable mention for her Was One. play during the run said they that.” performance. “They were both of a very high were happy and pleased that it But just as gratifying was the The win means the play will standard,” said the Vancouverwas as good as it was.

“Both he and Lori had to work with an Italian accent,” he noted. “Ryan’s a pretty seasoned actor, but he really excelled himself. He worked very, very hard from day one and not only nailed the accent, but all the comedic stuff I wanted to put in.” The awards for best costumes and lighting illustrate the degree to which crew work can make or break a production, particularly in evoking period atmosphere, Kloegman said. “It’s kind of a foregone conclusion that whenever Pat does costumes they’re going to be fantastic,” he said. “Even over Amadeus, which had wonderful costumes, he felt that all Pat’s costumes conveyed the 1890s period admirably, and particularly thought a theatrical Cyrano de Bergerac costume was perfect,” Kloegman added. “Eric’s lighting was very, very good, particularly the mood lighting at the beginning of the show using footlights. It gave the real feeling of an 1800s theatre, and Eric’s idea of doing that was spot-on.” And Shermann’s award for backstage etiquette really recognizes the professional way she ran the show, he said. “Her director couldn’t be there at all for the day when the set was moved into the Vagabonds’ playhouse – she had to supervise the placing of the set for sightlines, arranging a rope for the Cyrano character to swing in on, and a sandbag that has to drop near one of the actresses,” he said. “She’s quite probably the best stage manager I’ve ever worked with – she had a big job to do and stayed focused on that.” For those who missed the show on its initial run, there may also be some good news. Kloegman said there are plans to restage The Ladies of the Camellias at the Coast Capital Playhouse for several fundraising performances prior to taking the show to Kamloops, although dates are still to be confirmed.

t’s funny sometimes, how the smallest of things can sometimes affect the rest of one’s life. Take Paul Chiarenza, for example. Had he been a more conscientious student in his senior year at Vancouver’s University Hill Secondary, he may never have found himself at the Langley Events Centre last weekend – 20 years later – accepting a Basketball BC Coaching Award of Excellence. After all, a teenage Paul Chiarenza had no designs on coaching basketball. But it was either that or detention. “I played for the senior team, and I got roped into coaching the school’s Grade 8 girls as a way to get out of being punished – I had missed a bunch of classes. They needed a coach, and that was the alternative,” he explained. “It’s ironic, the way it all turned out, but that was my first coaching gig. After that, I was hooked.” Chiarenza, who teaches English and coaches the senior girls team at Southridge School, was honoured Saturday by Basketball BC for his work coaching the Capilano University Blues women’s team. The 37-year-old Vancouver native has been on the Capilano bench for more than a decade – “11 or 12 years – I lose track easily,” he laughed – and just last season led his team to a B.C. Colleges Athletic Association (BCCAA) title, and a top-four finish at nationals.

“Winning something like this, it was super exciting – it’s always nice to be recognized, and normally these kind of awards go handin-hand with team success, and our team this year was awesome,” Chiarenza said. “Juggling the team here (Southridge) and the team there (Capilano) was a new experience for me, but I had a phenomenal set of assistants in both places, and JP (Southridge athletic director James Porpaczy) was very understanding, as I tried to do both jobs. “It took a lot of help from a lot of people, and that’s why it’s nice to get this kind of award – because it took a whole team.” Chiarenza is in his first year teaching at Southridge and, speaking again of fate, may have never been a teacher had the NBA’s Vancouver Grizzlies not bolted for Memphis in 2001. After going to school to study journalism, Chiarenza ended up, upon graduation, with what he still calls his dream job – working in the media-relations department for the expansion Grizzlies. He was at every game, and as post-game reporter for the team, got the opportunity to interview countless NBA stars, from Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson to Larry Bird and a slew of famous broadcasters. “It was all my idols. It was a very sad day when it was done – that was the best gig ever,” he said. But when the team moved south, Chiarenza instead went back to school to finish up an English degree, and from there

BUILDING FOR BETTER HEALTH “This Centre represents a significant shift in how we will deliver care.” -Peter Goldthorpe, Vice President of Capital Projects, Real Estate and Facilities, Fraser Health

LEARN MORE Go to www.fraserhealth.ca for more information about the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre and to watch our video. Details about our public open house coming soon.

Only 26 days and counting until the opening Patient centred care begins at the doorstep of the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre, a new Fraser Health building opening June 1 in the heart of Surrey. Every aspect of the five-storey building at 140 Street and Fraser Highway was thoughtfully designed to meet the needs of outpatients – those who don’t require emergency care or an overnight hospital stay.

Architects worked closely with Fraser Health clinical groups to make each patient’s experience as stress-free as possible. A “one-stop shopping” approach brings together related services in the same location. Exam rooms are soundproofed and spacious enough to accommodate not only the patient and care team but family members as well.

“We kept the future in mind in building

“The flow, the convenience – everything we’ve done is to improve health outcomes and make a visit more pleasant,” said Barry Pearce, Chief Project Officer.

Mesquitta of BCHS Healthcare, which

Fraser Health services and programs are already booking patients for diagnostic scans and tests, specialist consults, follow-up care, chronic illness management and a variety of treatments and day surgeries at this new Centre.

Colour-coded lights can indicate room status to help maximize room use and reduce waits. Computers are in every room for quick access to records and information. Elder friendly modifications, including handrails, are throughout.

But not only will the Pattison Outpatient Centre increase health care capacity in Surrey and throughout the Fraser Health region, it was built with a focus on patient care, comfort and convenience.

Healing atmosphere Design inspiration came from the environment – the nearby Green Timbers forest and the sustainable approach required for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) gold status.

“This building will enable us to provide care for outpatients in a setting that was specifically designed for them,” said Peter Goldthorpe, Vice President of Capital Projects, Real Estate and Facilities for Fraser Health. “It represents a significant shift in how we will deliver care.”

As a result, the Centre is bright and welcoming with extensive use of wood in the décor and expansive windows that invite in natural light and views of trees and gardens. Other touches include stress-reducing sky ceilings in CT and MRI rooms and a non-denominational sacred space for quiet reflection.

The right services in the right space As you enter the window-lined lobby visitors can quickly orient themselves with the help of computer p express check-in kiosks, reception staff, and clear, simple signage. signage.  

Equipped for the future With population growth and ongoing improvements in technology the Outpatient Centre can keep pace with advances thanks to built-in infrastructure, such as special shielding in rooms, and wiring and space for future equipment.

this Centre so that expansion will be significantly less expensive and disruptive to patient care,” noted Bill built, financed and will maintain the facility. The facility itself can expand by 30 per cent.

Fras Health believes you deserve the best health care. And Jim Pattison agrees. Give to the Surrey Memorial Fraser Hos Hospital Foundation today and he will generously match your gift. Donate now at www.smhfoundation.com

After struggling last week at the 2011 Abby Invitational tournament, the White Rock Tritons will look to bounce back in league play this weekend, with a pair of doubleheaders on the schedule. On Saturday, the Premier Baseball League squad heads to North Vancouver’s Parkgate Park, where they’ll play two against the North Shore Twins, who currently sit in sixth place with a 6-4 record; the Tritons, meanwhile, sit in eighth with a 7-6 mark. On Sunday, the Tritons return to their home park, where they’ll host the first-place Parksville

Royals at South Surrey Athletic Park. The Royals are 7-1 on the season, and have won six in a row. Games on both days have 11 a.m and 1:30 p.m. start times. The Tritons struggled at the Abbotsford Cardinal-hosted Invitational last weekend, losing their first two games – 11-0 to the Twins, followed by a 6-2 defeat at the hands of the Victoria Eagles. The tournament was won by the Langley Blaze, who beat the Vancouver Cannons 12-2 in Sunday’s final at Abbotsford’s Delair Park. - Nick Greenizan

On the right track Some of Surrey’s top high school track and field athletes were at South Surrey Athletic Park this week, competing in the first two days of the Surrey High School Track and Field Championships. On Tuesday and Wednesday, sprint and relay heats, as well as steeplechase and the 3,000-metres were held, with finals in most events slated to continue today at Bear Creek Park in North Surrey. Surrey boasts an impressive array of track talent this year, many of whom will contend for medals next month at provincials. Among the contenders this week are Elgin Park’s Jake Bruchet, the defending B.C. boys steeplechase champion; White Rock Christian’s Sean Keane, among the country’s best in the 1,500-m; Semiahmoo’s Jack Williams and Fleetwood Park’s Keffri Neal, who are both among B.C.’s best middle-distance runners.

How it works: As temperatures plunge, fat cells freeze long before muscle, skin or any other tissue does! Zeltiq Coolsculpting takes advantage of this by chilling fat deposits to around 45 degrees. “Damaged, frozen fat cells can’t be repaired by the body, so they’re smoothing out even stubborn fat pads within two to four monthsâ€? says dermatologist Mark S.

New run laces up You could be the next senior idol!

Surrey runners have one more event to add to their calendars this year, now that the inaugural Surrey International World Music Marathon is set for late summer. The new run, hosted by the Surrey International Marathon Society, will be held Sept. 30, with full marathon (42.2 km), half marathon and eight-km distances available, and also a Kids Fun Run. The marathon starts at Central City, and runners will then set out through North Surrey, down to Bear Creek and Green Timbers parks, before returning along Fraser Highway. The marathon will also feature “cultural music miles” – musical performances will be staged along the route, allowing local performers and cultural organizations a chance to showcase art, music, costumes and more.

MAY 5/2011

Home values continue to rise in Canada. Royal LePage House Price Survey reports first quarter gains. The average price of a home in Canada increased between 3.5 and 4.3 per cent in the first quarter of 2011, according to a Royal LePage House Price Survey released last month. “The rate at which Canadian homes are appreciating may well have peaked for the next year or so,” says Phil Soper, president and chief executive of Royal LePage Real Estate Services. “We expect house prices will continue to creep up, but most of the excess demand created by the initial drop in house rates has been satisified.” Soper expects the n umber of house listings to rise, and says that low single-digit percentages are likely to continue for the rest of the year.

In the first quarter of 2011, Vancouver, Montreal and Halifax experienced significant price gains compared to the same period in 2010, which Royal LePage contributes to favourable regional demographic shifts and a healthy local economy. “Canada’s real estate market has maintained momentum coming out of 2010, indicating that the post-recession recovery is continuing,” says Soper. He states that while the slow pace of improving employment levels has tempered the housing market somewhat, Vancouver is an exception. “Foreign buyers, particularly from China, are driving demand in select mid-to-high priced markets, and driving up the regional average reported home prices at a surprising pace,” he says.

Royale Properties:

Outlook reaches out to young families by Colin Oswin

Potential homebuyers have a chance to get in on the ground floor of a burgeoning community at Royale Properties’ Outlook development. Located in Langley’s Willoughby neighbourhood, Outlook is nestled in the middle of parks, pubs and big-box shopping – and Outlook sales manager Tucker McClean says even more amenities are on the way. “Everything is within walking distance,” he says. “It’s a really nice little nook here.” In addition to Willoughby’s alreadyexisting attractions, McClean says young families will appreciate the community park and elementary

school going up right next door to Outlook. “You can basically watch your children walk to school from your balcony,” he says.

The school is scheduled to be open for business by fall 2012. Inside, homeowners will find tall, nine-foot ceilings on the main floor. Moving upstairs, the master and secondary bedrooms feature vaulted ceilings in select homes (Outlook has six different home layouts, ranging from 1,227 to 1,785 sq. feet), as well as loop-pile carpeting. Living, dining and family rooms feature wide-plank teak or wenge laminate floors, and electric fireplaces are available in certain home styles.

Home buyers can choose from two different designer colour schemes – magnolia or chestnut. In the kitchen, buyers will find designer-selected granite countertops, double-basin sinks and flat panel cabinets in Tatami Kuiimu or Studio Teak. A full suite of designer stainless steel appliances comes standard, with a 18.7 cubic foot fridge, 30-inch self-clean range, a built-in microwave above the continued on page 7

range and a five-level dishwasher. Bathrooms feature walk-in showers, porcelain tile backsplashes, 12 by 24-inch tile floors, deep soaker tubs and even an oversized rain shower head. “It’s little touches like that that go above and beyond,” McClean says. All Outlook homes also have a powder room to add that extra bit of flexibility for families where mirror time is at a premium. “Just to have a small powder room makes it easier and more convenient,” McClean says. And out back, home buyers will find big, spacious decks – perfect for entertaining guests in the summertime. “For me, these are some of the largest decks I’ve seen in a townhome,” McClean says. Outlook will have 102 homes when the development is complete. It’s already halfway done, with Phase 3 nearly sold out and Phase 4 coming soon. Nearly 20 units are occupied. Outlook homes start at $304,900. For more information, visit www.outlookliving. com or call 604-888-8778.
