Public market property to be sold instead

Salvation Army loses out on land gift Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Evan Seal photo

Property is again listed for sale.

The owner of the Surrey Public Market is no longer donating the property to the Salvation Army, Black Press has learned. Three years ago, officials at the Salvation Army learned Walter Chan, owner of Smitty’s Restaurants, was giving them the 7.7-acre property at 64 Avenue and King George Boulevard. That’s recently changed – for-sale signs have

gone back up on the property and the Sally Ann is moving on to other things. “It’s for sale,” Chan confirmed in a telephone interview from Calgary. He wouldn’t comment on why the gift to the Salvation Army fell through. “Why are we accountable to you?” Chan said. “I have no comments.” Maj. Russ Holland, a pastor with the Salvation Army, said the three-year process was a

distressing exercise. “We got the letter of a gift in kind back in the late part of November last year,” Holland said Monday. “Then we were just waiting for the deed or the title to come to us.” They waited months, and then made contact with Chan’s brother, Donald, who is selling the property for the restaurant magnate. “He says ‘oh, it’s just not going to happen,’”  see page 4

Four-vehicle collision

Chain reaction ends with a breathalyzer Police are recommending impaired-driving charges in connection with a four-vehicle crash at 24 Avenue and 152 Street Monday. Traffic northbound on 152 Street was backed up for several blocks following the chain-reaction collision, which occurred around 4:30 p.m. and involved a transit bus. Police, fire and ambulance crews responded to the scene, where one driver blew a fail on a roadside screening device. According to the police report, the northbound bus was rear-ended by a newer Kia, which was rear-ended by a Toyota RAV, which was rear-ended by a GMC Jimmy. No injuries were reported. The Jimmy was impounded and one woman arrested in connection with the collision. Charges are anticipated against a 48-yearold White Rock resident. - Tracy Holmes

Complaints from disgruntled employee, says owner

SPCA investigates after exotic-animal deaths Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

The owner of a South Surrey animal rescue shelter and talent agency is under investigation, following complaints from the public regarding the animals in his care. But Gary Oliver says he believes the BC SPCA is simply trying to make an example of him in a quest to rid B.C. of exotic animals.

“They’ve got nothing on me, they really don’t,” Oliver said this week. Oliver, who runs the non-profit Urban Safari Rescue Society and Cinemazoo Animal Agency, took over space at 1395 176 St. – the former home of the Rainforest Reptile Refuge – in August. His creatures include everything from insects and birds to snakes and caimans. Concerns were raised by the

public last month, said BC SPCA investigator Eileen Drever. Visits to the facility resulted in “a number of orders,” Drever said. “We have concerns with respect to the number and welfare of the animals,” Drever said, noting necropsies ordered on caimans that died at the facility are hoped to help determine if the animals were neglected.

“Mr. Oliver states that he’s doing the best that he can, but if animals have suffered as a result, that’s not good enough.” Oliver has been given a deadline to address the issues raised, SPCA spokesperson Lorie Chortyk said. Chortyk declined to identify specifics, citing the ongoing investigation, but noted that if Oliver doesn’t comply, legal action could

be the next step. Oliver said he is confident the BC SPCA is responding to complaints from a disgruntled employee who “tried to stir up a can of worms.” Drever said the BC SPCA is “trying to be reasonable.” “We want to help him along. We’re just out to ensure the animals’ welfare is being taken care of.”

A fire at a Surrey lumber mill Monday forced police to block traffic for several hours. Smoke from the blaze at Dhaliwal Cedar at 14630 66 Ave. created a towering black plume visible for miles. RCMP temporarily shut down traffic on 144 Street between 64 Avenue and Hyland Road.

Ten per cent receiving convalescent fee break

Charge for recovering patients under renewed fire Jeff Nagel Black Press

Some convalescent-care patients deemed to be in financial hardship aren’t paying the province’s controversial new $29.40 per day fee for room and board while they recover from a hospital stay. Fraser Health spokesman Roy Thorpe said this week that hardship waivers have so far been granted to 30 patients, or close to 10 per cent of the 315 patients admitted to convalescent care units since April 19, when the new fees took effect. Only one patient who requested a waiver has been denied, Thorpe said, and, in most cases, the waivers eliminated the fee altogether. Patients who request a waiver must provide financial statements. There is no income cutoff to be eligible – the health authority instead judges the patients’ financial abil-

ity to pay based on a combination of their income, rent, medical and other costs. Critics of the fees say they cause stress to the patients – most of whom are over 75 – and might even contravene the Canada Health Act. “Seniors cannot afford it,” said Alice Edge, co-chair of the BC Health Coalition. “If people are receiving medically necessary treatment or care, user fees should not be introduced.” Convalescent care is for patients who have been discharged from hospital but need more time to recover under supervised care, provided in several residential care homes around the region. There are concerns some patients will try to go home sooner than they should because of the fees, or else may refuse to go into convalescent care and remain in hospital, occupying beds needed for acute patients and

Fonyo remains in custody Hannah Sutherland & Dan Ferguson Black Press

Steve Fonyo is to remain in custody and appear in Surrey Provincial Court next Friday. The 45-year-old – who has been charged with one count of uttering threats against wife Lisa Greenwood – appeared for a bail hearing Wednesday, when a new court date was set for Nov. 19. The crown initially suggested Fonyo, 45, not have contact with Greenwood – who was in attendance – at which point Fonyo called out “That’s my wife” from the prisoner’s box. “Stay focused Mr. Fonyo,” Judge J.W. Jardine said. “You have very

good counsel; you may wish to have him do the speaking for you.” After a break in proceedings – during which prosecution was instructed to speak with Greenwood – Crown agreed to the date and did not seek other orders. Fonyo was arrested for uttering threats against Greenwood in Surrey Nov. 7. Greenwood told reporters outside the courtroom at Fonyo’s first court appearance Monday that she and her husband got into an argument Sunday because he was stressed out over finances. He hadn’t been paid for work he’d done, Greenwood said, and

their argument escalated to the point where she called police. She didn’t want him charged. By law, police are required to lay charges in domestic assault cases even if the alleged victim withdraws their complaint. It’s another legal crisis for the one-legged runner, who made an historic run across Canada for cancer research in 1985. Earlier this year, the Surrey resident was arrested for credit card fraud, nearly scuttling his planned wedding at Fonyo Beach in Victoria on Aug. 28, but he was subsequently released from jail after an unidentified benefactor put up the $20,000 bail.

price is $7.5 million for the property and said the location could be used for retail and residential. Mayor Dianne Watts said Tuesday she’s extremely distressed with the continued delays in redeveloping the property, adding the city will begin enforcing its unsightly premises bylaw. “We have been trying to redevelop that site for quite some time,” Watts said, adding several proponents have come forward with “excellent” plans to purchase the property. “Then, when it comes to the eleventh hour, everything falls

apart. “This has happened time and time and time again, and for us, as a city, it’s very frustrating.” Watts said the city will be informing Chan to clean up the property, or it will be done for him and the bill will be added to his property taxes. “It’s been an eyesore, we’ve been trying to get the owner to work with us in terms of re-developing that site,” Watts said, adding it needs to get cleaned up quickly, “because we’ve been waiting too long for the owner to take action.”

Surrey council has agreed to preserve Sullivan Hall.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING NOVEMBER 15, 2010 Evan Seal photo

Sullivan Hall to be preserved, protected Kevin Diakiw Black Press

A long-fought battle to preserve one of Sullivan’s most significant heritage buildings has been won. Last week, Surrey council agreed to enter into a Heritage Revitalization Agreement to preserve Sullivan Hall, at 6306 152 St. A bylaw will be drafted to provide the hall further protection. Kelly MacNamara is the grandson of Wes Gillis, a Sullivan homesteader, who was a lifetime member of the association that owns the hall. About five years ago, MacNamara made it his mission to rescue the last piece of history in the area. A staff report to council indicated the hall is an important fixture in the Sullivan and is worth saving. “Sullivan Hall is one of the last remaining significant historic build-

ings of the former Sullivan Village and has been listed on the Surrey Heritage Register for over 10 years,” the staff report states. “The Hall is an excellent candidate for longer-term conservation.” MacNamara is pleased to have the structure under protection. “I’m pretty happy,” MacNamara said. “Maybe 15 years ago, the hall was not old enough to be considered a heritage building.” He said now that it’s 75 years old and the fact that the community has lost several heritage buldings (including the Wes Gillis House), the hall has a higher degree of importance. “There’s actually nothing left except the hall,” MacNamara said. “Although it may seem early to put it into heritage, you just never know what’s going to happen.”

NOTICE is hereby given that the Council of the City of White Rock will hold a Public Meeting in City Hall COUNCIL CHAMBERS, 15322 Buena Vista Avenue, White Rock, BC, on Monday, November 15, 2010 at 7:00 p.m. in accordance with the White Rock Planning Procedures Bylaw, 2009, No. 1869.

Surrey man faces luring charges A police officer posed as a 13-year-old girl on the Internet who was willing to have sex with an older man. Now, a 26-year-old Surrey resident has been arrested by the Vancouver Police Department (VPD) vice unit. Robert John Harmsworth was apprehended in Surrey Sunday and charged with one count of communicating via a computer to lure a child under 14 years of age. In early September, according to the VPD, a vice investigator posing as a young girl on the Internet

was contacted by an online user, and they began exchanging emails of a sexual nature. Arrangements were made between the two to meet, and Harmsworth was arrested at a Surrey SkyTrain station.

editorial

No one stepping forward yet for premier’s job t’s the job no one wants – at least not right now. Last week, Premier Gordon Campbell stated that he is stepping down, as his personality had become so entangled with the issue of the HST that the business of government was getting bogged down. Right away, there were rumours of many potential candidates, from within the Liberal cabinet and caucus, and outside. As of this writing, no one has stepped forward. Several people have said no. They include John Furlong, the CEO of the Olympics organizing committee; Carole Taylor, former finance minister, and Aboriginal Relations Minister Barry Penner. Several others are said to be interested, but remain coy. They include Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts and Health Minister Kevin Falcon – both of whom are residents of South Surrey – as well as Fort Langley-Aldergrove MLA Rich Coleman, a 14-year MLA who has held many cabinet positions. He is currently solicitor general, and minister of public safety. Education Minister George Abbott said in an interview Wednesday that he is definitely interested, but he needs to find out final details about the leadership selection process from the BC Liberal party. He suggested the leadership issue should be decided as soon as possible, preferably before the legislative session begins in February. Abbott also made the intriguing comment that all potential candidates from within cabinet have agreed that the party, and particularly MLAs, must rally around the new leader. He said the government has dug itself into a deep hole with the public, and only a united party has a chance of digging its way out. Abbot’s point about the public’s opinion of the government is a very important one. It is also a very important factor in keeping the number of leadership candidates down. Anyone who has embraced the government’s handling of the HST issue, and that includes all members of cabinet and caucus, with the notable exception of Blair Lekstrom, is tainted in the minds of many members of the public. It’s no wonder so few are stepping forward to express interest in the premier’s job.

Use disability permits wisely Editor: I am amazed at how many people get their handicapped permits but never read the letter that comes with it.

Four-year-old Alexa Middelaer was killed May 17, 2008, when she was hit by a car driven by Carol Berner (below).

I hope I can earn their forgiveness The day after Carol Berner apologized to the family of four-year-old Alexa Middelaer at Monday’s sentencing hearing for impaired driving causing death, Berner’s niece, Kendra Voth, issued the following statement: Editor: I am the niece of Carol Berner and wanted to release Carol’s official remorse letter to the public. Carol has been silently mourning for so long and hopes to find a way to make a difference in the community by sharing her experience. Here are the heart-wrenching words spoken by Carol, as she tried to hold herself together while reading her statement in court yesterday. She spiraled into a very severe panic attack to the point of seizing, once she finished addressing Alexa’s family. It’s shameful to think that this woman is not living in anguish daily having to live with the horrific consequences of her actions. The Middelaers may not ever be ready to give forgiveness, and Carol is willing to spend the rest of her life trying to earn it, as said in her letter. Kendra Voth, Vancouver Monday, Nov. 8 – After all this time of silently grieving for your family and for what has happened, I stand before you finally able to speak. I have been living in torment all this time, not being able to reach out and express my deepest emotions to your family. As a mother, I can’t fathom the anguish that you all must feel every day, and knowing that I am responsible for the death of your precious little girl and the life-long injuries that Daphne will endure is something that I will live with for the rest of my life. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think of Alexa and how intensely she must be missed. If there was anything I could do or say to take away your pain, I would. I wish I could change what happened that day, but

all I can do is take responsibility for my actions and make changes within myself and try and make a difference. I will share my story endlessly and publicly, in hopes to prevent someone else from making the same mistakes I made. If I can prevent just one person from getting behind the wheel of a car, I know I am making a difference. I hope to have the opportunity to help rebuild value in our community and heal the devastation I have caused. I will never get behind the wheel of another car for the rest of my life and since have stopped drinking entirely. I recently have found God and try to find peace and keep faith that I can find the strength to get through every day. Emotionally, I don’t know how to cope with the agony I feel every day. I am haunted by nightmares and suffer from severe anxiety attacks that leave me feeling vulnerable and out of control of my state of mind. The effects of my actions are serious and have not gone without punishment. I have quietly and emotionally accepted my fate of being turned into a villain by my peers and have been outcast within our community. The consequences of my choices have affected my ability to ever live a normal life. But nothing is a harsher punishment than knowing I caused this senseless heartbreak and pain. In understanding the severity of this situation, I know I can’t just ask for forgiveness, that I have to earn it, and going to jail will not give me the opportunity to do so. I am so desperately sorry for what the Middelaer family is going through. I am just an ordinary, good, hard-working member of our community who made a terrible mistake. I hope one day I can earn the Middelaers’ forgiveness and that they can truly start to heal. Carol Berner

Mustang getting ready for permanent home

Pets get second chance Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

A dog deemed vicious and seized by White Rock bylaw officers – after he was left to fend for himself on a vacated Buena Vista property two months ago – is now in foster care and being groomed for a permanent home. Mustang, who has been described as a pit bull-cross, is currently staying with a family that has two other dogs and a cat, and is said to be doing well. “He’s a little fearful of other dogs because he hasn’t had much exposure to them; he’s not aggressive towards them,” said the owner of the animal rescue society currently dealing with Mustang.

He’s suffered emotional trauma at the hands of his owners,” she said. “We’re trying to get him to the point where he can be comfortable to be left alone in a house.” Once Mustang reaches that stage, he will be placed in a permanent home, she said. “He’s healthy, he’s very happy, he’s never going to be chained again. He’s going to be adopted into a home that’s going to treat him as a family member… as every dog should be. “He will never be treated that way again.” Wyman said he is happy with how everything turned out for Mustang. “As far as I was concerned, he was a good-looking dog and an intelligent dog,” he said. “He just didn’t have a very good start in life, that’s the problem. “This dog showed me he has something in him.” Bentley is doing “great,” according to his new owner, who said he lives in a fenced-in area on a South Surrey farm where the family’s two daughters brush and hold him. Bentley has also greatly benefited from the leftovers of this year’s garden, she said, and is enjoying a diet of carrots, zucchini and other veggies. “We’re really happy to have him and it’s really thanks to the story that we’ve had him come to live with us,” she said. “My girls are just thrilled.”

perspectives …on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Students forging global friendships Jayne Alexander, Robert Ingram, Blake Baumeister and Kelli Sturkenboom are preparing for a three-week trip to Taiwan. Above, they carve pumpkins and check out the local sights with their Taiwanese visitors last month.

Staff Reporter

or four Taiwanese students staying on the Peninsula last month, there were some lifestyle changes that took getting used to. The houses were much larger than the small apartments and condos in China – where numerous family members dwell – and the food wasn’t always hot. The experience was a lesson in culture, but also an opportunity for the visitors to practise their language skills in an English-speaking environment. They each stayed with an Elgin student, who, in turn, will visit the Shu Zen College of Medicine and Management in Taiwan for three weeks this December. “I think this program is very helpful for us. I think it can change my future,” Marcel Lee told Peace Arch News before the students returned to China a few weeks ago. He said travelling to Canada opened his eyes to the way things are back home. “I see a lot of things differently in Taiwan.” The exchange program is offered annually at Elgin by South Surrey couple May and Tsai-Ching Lin, whose family owns the Shu Zen school. “We just want them to have the opportunity to experience a different culture, to stay with a Canadian family, to experience a different life,” May Lin said, noting they first created the opportunity six years ago when their daughter, Elgin grad Victoria, was in Grade 11. This year’s four exchange students arrived last month and, for three weeks, attended classes at Elgin, such as English, woodwork and foods. “It’s a great experience to learn English and stay with a local family (and) experience life,” Kenny Chiou, 18, said. Sixteen-year-old Angelu Su, who is studying dentistry at Shu Zen College, said it was beneficial to get a taste of another culture. “I’ve never left Taiwan and I think it’s a very good experience for me.” Four Grade 12 Elgin students are now preparing for their Dec. 10 trip to Taiwan, where they will reunite with the Chinese students

they hosted. The Lins sponsor the travellers, who only cover food costs and spending money. They will stay in college dorms during the week, and the homes of Chinese residents on weekends. “I applied because I thought it would be interesting to see how

things are done on the other side of the world,” Blake Baumeister said. Kelli Sturkenboom said the local students will study Mandarin, go on field trips, learn Chinese calligraphy and teach host students English. “It’s a good way to challenge yourself.”

Jayne Alexander agreed, saying it’s also a good travel experience. “I like getting pushed out of my comfort zone; I like going in a small group, with no parents and no one to guide you around,” she said. “I know a lot of kids are kind of scared off by the idea of missing Christmas… (but) once you’ve

been away and travelled, you realize what an amazing chance this is and we’re so lucky to have it here.” For Robert Ingram, who is half Chinese and has attempted to learn the language twice before, the trip is a chance to explore his heritage. “I’m really interested in learning the culture.” And taking in a new culture is a large focus of the program, May Lin said, seeing as three weeks isn’t a realistic amount of time to learn a language. For those interested in a more comprehensive study of Mandarin, the Lins offer a one-year program at Shu Zen College for four to six people graduating high school or entering post secondary. There is currently an Elgin student in the placement, who left in September and will return home in June. Earl Marriott grad Björn Jivung, 19, took the extended program last year, and said he could speak Mandarin conversationally within four months. “It’s a great opportunity to learn Chinese, especially today, when it’s growing so much.” Jivung said he plans to use the skill with his father’s business, which works closely with China. May Lin said another goal of the program is to help Peninsula students gain an appreciation of their home country. “When you come back (to Canada), you appreciate, you are so lucky you live here. That’s what we want the Canadian students to see.” The opportunity is also meant to foster a relationship between youth from opposite sides of the world, Tsai-Ching Lin added. “We bring them together and they can bring more understanding to each other and they can respect each other,” he said. “If we start at a young age, they have an opportunity to (appreciate) different people.”

Domestic violence plan drafted Kevin Diakiw Black Press

More help for victims of domestic violence is on the way as local organizations work to identify and fill some of the service gaps. About 150 service providers met at Kwantlen Polytechnic University Tuesday to draft a plan to better tackle domestic violence in Surrey. Organizations – including the Justice Education Society, Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Surrey Crime Prevention and the Surrey RCMP

– met in June 2009, and again in January last year, to organize the best approach to stopping the violence. One of the gaps already identified is education. Surrey Coun. Barinder Rasode, who is helping facilitate the forum, expects a program to be launched in Surrey schools to better educate children

about domestic violence. “Education and prevention is a key theme, along with better networking and improved collaboration between service providers,� she said. The importance of educating children, she said, is that they are impacted now, and likely to carry the problematic behaviours

New van shortens wait list Semiahmoo House Society’s Rec and Leisure program was able to purchase an 18-seat, wheelchair-accessible van thanks to a $30,000 donation from Westminster Savings. “Our program has grown even larger because of the bus,” program manager Julie Kolstrup said in a release. “There are now three additional spaces for participants, which mean fewer people on the wait lists and more people benefitting. “This is yet another example of how our community values our service and efforts, and the people we support.” Semiahmoo House supports individuals and families challenged with developmental disabilities, and its Rec and Leisure program allows participants to have fun, make friends and learn new things. The van offers greater community involvement and opportunities, especially for people with more severe disabilities who may not have access to integrated programs unless supports are available, the release states.

For 44 years, Booth has bragged that he is still on his honeymoon, she said. After 30 years of travelling the world together, the Booths launched the Booth International Festival. Held for the first five years at their own home, the soiree has raised more than $45,000 for the MDA, including $12,000 this past August. Booth told the Peace Arch News last year his ultimate dream was to establish three mood-disorder support groups for every 50,000 people, with every trio including a specific group for youth, a time of life when mental illness often presents itself, he said. Booth was also passionate about eliminating the stigma associated with mental illness. He got his first introduction to mental illness when he was 12, when his older sister didn’t come home after class one day. Cherry was found the next day, “mentally lost,” and was institutionalized for the next 10 years.

She went on to earn a science degree. Booth was also proud of the work he did with Shad Valley, a summer program for senior

he Peace Arch proclaims Canadians and Americans as “children of a common mother.” That link is more practically seen in the tracks that run between the Semiahmoo Peninsula and its neighbour to the south, Blaine, Wash. – a crucial connecting stitch in the economic fabric of the Pacific Northwest. As far as Gus Melonas is concerned, the cross-border ties between the railway and the cities of White Rock and Surrey, and beyond, are as strong as they ever were. “We have a consistent, close relationship,” said the spokesperson for Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway. “We view ourselves as a partner in the community, and recognize the important role we play in moving traffic through Canada, as well as in movement in the U.S.” But there’s another, historic reason for the almost familial feeling, Melonas said, noting the orange colour scheme of BNSF rolling stock is a conscious nod to its heritage and history as heir to the Great James J. Hill Northern Railway empire. “Some people view the first BNSF president railroad as an American company, but our first president, James J. Hill, was a Canadian, and the company retains strong Canadian ties. That

Van Horne – according to Walter Vaughn’s Life and Work of Sir William Van Horne – allegedly pledging “I’ll get even with him if I have to go to hell for it and shovel coal!” In the subsequent development of ‘Hill’s Road’ – or the Great Northern, as it was rechristened in 1889 – one can trace Hill’s fervour to pre-empt competition by developing alternate routes westward to the coast. And while his plan of creating an international port in Semiahmoo Bay was never realized, the acquisition of land along the shoreline in South Surrey and White Rock was an undeniable feather in the cap at the time for GN – and a legacy that continues today. While the relationship between White Rock and the railway was thorny in its earlier decades – particularly over issues such as beach access – the 1950s seemed to usher in a greater sense of co-operation. Crossings at Bay Street and both ends of the beach were negotiated, and all leases and agreements were transferred to White Rock when it became a city in 1957. City treasurer Sandra Kurylo said the question of beach access seems moot today, as the current lease between the city and BNSF includes numerous easements across railway land. “We look on White Rock as a railroad town,” said Melonas. City manager Peggy Clark points out that the presence of the railway in White Rock is not anomalous in Canada. Dealing with railway right-of-ways and property is a historic fact of life in most Canadian communities said Clark, former director of community services and city planner in Regina, Sask. “In Regina, the railway (CN) wanted out of the railway station, which is now a casino,” she said. “We had to do all the negotiations with the railway to get the station – and that happened across Canada as CN abandoned its lines.” Next: The railway’s opponents have their say.

WATERFRONT PARKING It’s here! From November 1 – February 28 it now only costs $1.00 per hour for waterfront parking between the hours of 10:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. In September, White Rock City Council amended the waterfront parking rate in order to simplify the pay parking policy for waterfront businesses and visitors while maintaining fiscal viability and minimizing the financial impact on taxpayers.

City of White Rock residents will form the majority of membership on these committees. The City is also seeking individuals to serve on the following specific committees: 2. Board of Variance The Board of Variance reviews applications from residents who need a variance if they feel that compliance with the Zoning Bylaw may cause them a hardship. The Board makes decisions on whether the application meets the criteria of hardship. The Board consists of three volunteer members appointed by Council for a three year term, and meet approximately five times per year, at 3:30 p.m. at City Hall. 3. Public Art Advisory Committee (PAAC) The Public Art Advisory Committee will advise Council on the implementation of the Public Art policies for the City of White Rock. At minimum the committee will meet quarterly. 4. Advisory Design Panel (ADP) The Advisory Design Panel advises Council on the quality of design of the built environment of the City, particularly with regard to proposals for development and redevelopment. Volunteer members are needed for a two year term, in the following categories: Resident, Landscape Specialist, Architect and Physically Challenged representatives.

RAILWAY SAFETY The City of White Rock is increasing public safety around the railway tracks on East Beach by removing the current landscaping from beside the totem poles to the east end of the promenade. BNSF identified the trees and shrubbery as a safety concern, restricting the visibility of the trains and maintenance workers, as well as causing safety issues for non-railroad employees. The City’s main concern is keeping the waterfront area as a safe environment for everyone and will continue looking for ways to increase overall safety around the railway.

New impaired penalties misunderstood: Coleman Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – People are overreacting to new penalties imposed on drivers who blow in the “warn” range of a roadside blood alcohol test, Public Safety Minister Rich Coleman said this week. New penalties were imposed Sept. 20, giving police options beyond the 24-hour roadside suspension. A blood-alcohol reading in the “warn” range between 0.05 and 0.08 per cent can result in a threeday driving ban, a $200 “administrative penalty” and another $250 fee to have a driver’s licence reinstated. Drivers may also have their car impounded for three days and be billed for towing and storage, without ever exceeding the legal limit.

For those who exceed 0.08, more education on the roadside steeper on-the-spot fines and penalties for those under 0.08, 30-day vehicle seizures are now and when it comes to seizing within the discretion of vehicles, police may as well. police, in addition to charges if they proceed “If the vehicle can be parked legally somewith prosecution.

HST canvassers investigated by RCMP Seven canvassers from the petition campaign against the harmonized sales tax have been referred to the RCMP to decide if charges should be laid. Acting Chief Electoral Officer Craig James said this week that the analysis of the petition showed there were 2,247 multiple signers, and 38 of those signed three or more times. Elections BC identified 10 canvassers who “breached their duties” under the province’s Recall and Initiative Act, and seven were referred to the RCMP, James said. Warning letters were sent to the rest, reminding them that fines and jail sentences are possible for those convicted of violating the act.

Assistant Chief Electoral Officer Anton Boegman said in cases submitted to the RCMP, the same people had signed the same registered canvasser’s petition multiple times. The multiple signatures were weeded out in the initial count, so the petition to extinguish the HST remains valid. Petitioners organized by former premier Bill Vander Zalm’s Fight HST organization collected more than 700,000 names, but Elections BC checked them against the 2009 voters’ list and declared that 557,000 were valid. The B.C. government has since opted to hold a referendum in September 2011.

Property tax hike only choice before mayors Jeff Nagel Black Press

Metro Vancouver mayors are being urged to jack TransLink property taxes to finance the Evergreen Line and other transit upgrades on the hope the tax hike can be switched to a more palatable revenue mechanism next year. They will not vote on imposing a vehicle levy to fund transit expansion – at least not yet. TransLink board chair Dale Parker said public opposition to a vehicle levy was “particularly strong” and it’s not a practical option now because it would require provincial government support to collect it efficiently. Metro mayors were briefed Tuesday on the proposed financial supplement for TransLink, which goes to a vote Dec. 9. The basic option before the mayors would commit TransLink to raise $465 million for TransLink’s share of the $1.4-billion Evergreen SkyTrain line to Coquitlam and the first phase of the North Fraser Perimeter Road. That would cost the average $692,000 home an extra $36.36 Peter Fassbender in increased tax starting in 2012 Mayors council ($5.25 per $100,000). Had the vehicle levy, dubbed the Transportation Improvement Fee, been used, it would have instead charged every registered vehicle $15 to $55, depending on the carbon footprint. The board recommends the mayors approve a broader option – dubbed “Moving Forward” – that adds on another $338 million in bus service and SkyTrain station upgrades. That would lift the taxes on an average home by $61.65 a year. “Daily we hear demands for additional transit in under-served areas or where daily demand is overloading the system,” Parker said. TransLink cannot propose a funding supplement to the mayors that isn’t financed from sources it has available, although new ones could be on the horizon through ongoing talks with Victoria in line with an accord struck in September. The proposal would see the mayors pencil in the property tax hike for now to ensure work begins on schedule next year on the Evergreen Line and perimeter road. Because TransLink has saved $40 million from its budget this year, it doesn’t need to start collecting the higher property tax right away, buying time for the mayors and province to negotiate. That means a tax hike approved now could be erased by 2012, before it even kicks in, and be swapped with different funding sources – such as road pricing, a share of carbon tax or even the vehicle levy. “Can this get us far enough down the road that it gives us time to find other solutions?” regional mayors’ council chair Peter Fassbender asked. The scenario requires trust – some mayors fear no deal will materialize with the province after they sign

off, leaving them stuck with unwanted tax hikes. Delta Mayor Lois Jackson said she will likely vote against both options rather than “gamble with my taxpayers’ dollars.” Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie said further property tax hikes are unacceptable so he’ll also likely reject both options. But Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart said the region can’t renege on its past pledges and mayors must vote for one of the two options. “It’s put up our shut up time,” he said. “The Evergreen Line is two-thirds funded. We need to come up with our third.” Stewart said he’s troubled some mayors either “don’t remember the commitment or don’t understand the implications.” The province intends to issue a request for proposals on the Evergreen Line in early 2011.

Man fined $4,000 A White Rock man who pleaded guilty to four counts of failing to file tax returns was fined $4,000 for the offences in Surrey Provincial Court Monday. Robert Paul Parisien pleaded guilty to all charges, according to Canada Revenue Agency communications manager Maria Bender. Parisien was ordered to file his 2007 corporate tax return and the goods and services tax return for his company, Video Split Productions Inc., within a year, Bender said, noting two years of personal tax returns have now been filed. Parisien was fined $1,000 per count. He is also liable for any taxes owing on the tardy returns, plus interest and any civil penalties assessed by the CRA. Bender noted individuals who have not filed returns for previous years, or who have not reported all of their income, can voluntarily correct their tax affairs without penalty or prosecution if they make a valid disclosure before CRA initiates any compliance action.

arts & entertainment …on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Pantos aplenty set to delight audiences Alex Browne

I

Arts Reporter

t may not be Christmas yet – but panto season is already in full swing. Unless you’ve been living in a cave for a century or more, you’ll know that the holidays are, among other things, an excuse for gaudy slapstick musicals based on classic tales, replete with groaner gags, pop songs old and new and traditional stock characters such as the Dame (a man dressed, ludicrously, as a woman) and the Principal Boy (a woman dressed as the male hero of the tale). This year seems to have brought a bumper crop for local audiences. In addition to the traditional White Rock Players’ version – this year an adaptation of club classic Robinson Crusoe (Nov. 26 to Dec. 26 at Coast Capital Playhouse) – the daffy delirium is spreading rapidly east into Langley and northward into Surrey. The result will be two productions preparing to take to the stage back-toback at Surrey Arts Centre – Fraser Valley Gilbert and Sullivan Society’s Snow White and the Vertically-Challenged Excavators (Nov. 24 to Dec. 5), directed by club stalwart Robert Newcombe, which will be followed by Royal Canadian Theatre Company’s Alice In Wonderland (Dec. 16 to Jan. 2) directed and written by company founder Ellie King. And both feature players well known to audiences in White Rock and South Surrey. Snow White is FVGSS’s 25th annual panto, and the milestone is marked by Newcombe and producer Reginald Pillay (both no slouches as comedy performers), plus choreographer Carol Seitz and musical director Dann Wilhelm, with a show that pulls out all the stops in terms of familiar faces and humourous potential. In addition to Sophie Leroux as Snow White and Amanda Assalone as Prince Charming, the cast includes Norma Rushton as the Wicked Queen, Mike Balser as Dame Miss Heard, Tammy Theis as Yin, Lauren Kyle as Yang, James Walker as the Colonel, Melanie Minty as The Magic Mirror, Paul Rowell as the Gremlin, Justine Ankiewicz as Brown Owl and Rafiki, Joel Hendershott as the King and Nutbush, Megan Kroaker as Hansel and Keira Jang as Gretel, Clive Ramroop as excavator Snoozer and Prince Suavo, and Jeff Christensen as Prince Olgit and excavator Socoy. Playing the rest of the “vertically challenged excavators” are Rosemary Forst as Snappy, Sam Andrews as Derwat, Maddy Osborne-Wood as Tishoo, Casey Simpson

Joynt as Geepee and Sabrielle McCurdyForeman as Gleeful. Earl Marriott alum McCurdy-Foreman, 18 – noted for her acting and singing in school productions, including last spring’s memorable hit version of Beauty and the Beast – said the mock politically correct term “vertically challenged excavators” should – like everything else in the pantomime – be taken with more than a pinch of salt. “I find it especially funny, as Snow White is shorter than all of us – and one of the tallest people in the cast is also an excavator,” she said. She noted the character names, while artfully changed to avoid infringing Disney copyrights, manage to convey the particular qualities of each excavator. “My character is extremely happy all the time – which my friends think is very funny, and highly suited to me,” she added. “I had a little trouble figuring it out at first. The first time the excavators appear, they’re singing about how unhappy they are. I had to decide on being disappointed for a second and then all of a sudden being gleeful again!” McCurdy-Foreman said she is enjoying working with director Newcombe, musical director Wilhelm and Seitz, for her the one familiar face in the group – thanks to Contributed photo her numerous assignments The cast of Fraser Valley Gilbert & Sullivan’s Snow White. choreographing Marriott

Adele Bloch-Bauer portrait (1907), one of the artist’s most famous canvases of the 20th century.

Special screening of Adele’s Wish Nov. 16 at Elgin Park Secondary

Documentary provides ORDER NOW perspective on holocaust Christmas Delivery! FOR

Alex Browne Arts Reporter

The images are well-known – even iconic – but the controversial background story and subsequent fate of some well-known pieces of art is much more obscure. A special screening of the hour-long documentary Adele’s Wish, Nov. 16, 7:15 p.m., at the theatre room of Elgin Park Secondary (13484 24 Ave.) will shed light on several of the most famous canvases of legendary early 20th century Austrian painter Gustav Klimt – and highlight a political, cultural and ethical confrontation over their ownership that was played out in courtrooms during the last decade. Sponsored by the White Rock/South Surrey Jewish Community Centre, the film provides another perspective on the holocaust and the impact of

the Nazi era in Germany and Austria on life and culture. The Adele of the title was Adele Bloch-Bauer, the wife of a wealthy industrialist, whose portrait was painted twice by Klimt, once in 1907 and again in 1912. For decades the paintings, along with three other Klimt works, were proudly displayed in Vienna’s Belvedere Museum as national treasures. But as Bloch-Bauer’s niece, 92-year-old Maria Altmann, established – when she took the Republic of Austria to court in 2006 – the pieces had actually been looted from her family after the Nazis came to power in Austria in 1938. Adele’s Wish, made by Vancouver filmmaker Terrence Turner – who is husband of Altmann’s great niece – recounts the struggle of Altmann, a Los Angeles resident, to find justice

and restitution to address the wrongs of the past. It was a fight that forced Austria to re-examine its role in Nazi art thefts and also its own history of anti-Semitism, and the restoration of the paintings to Altmann and the other BlochBauer heirs. But the controversy of the case also extends to Altmann and the heirs themselves, who some have criticized for “cashing in” for since selling the restituted paintings – for an amount totalling more than $300 million. Turner and his producer brother Tim will be present at the screening to answer questions. Due to demand, purchase of advance tickets is strongly recommended.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Hundreds of runners take off from the start line during the 4.4-km girls cross-country championship race Saturday at Victoria’s Beaver Lake.

Semiahmoo Totem siblings run to podium finishes Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The Semiahmoo Totems’ brother-sister team of Jack and Alison Williams were the cream of the Peninsula cross-country crop last weekend in Victoria, both finishing with bronze medals at B.C. High School championships Saturday. Jack ran the 6.5-km boys’ race, held at Victoria’s Beaver Lake, in 21 minutes, 25.64 seconds – three seconds behind second-place finisher Christian Gavel, and 12 seconds back of William Cliff, both of whom ran for St. George’s. Alison, meanwhile, completed the 4.4-km girls’ circuit in 16:27.59, five seconds back of

Walnut Grove Secondary’s Ashley Windsor, who was second. Killarney’s Tanya Humenuik took top spot, in a time of 16:06.76 Alison’s third-place finish was an improvement over her provincial performance in 2009, when she placed seventh. Alison Williams The Williams duo – who compete at the club level for Ocean Athletics – come by their running talent honestly – their parents, Lynn Kanuka and Paul Williams, are both former Olympians; Kanuka captured a bronze medal at the

1984 Games – and both Jack and Alison are also noted sprinters, in addition to their long-distance talents. “They have both displayed a range that is nearly unheard of,” said Ocean Athletics coach Jim Jack Williams Clifford. “An absolutely jaw-dropping performance.” A handful of other South Surrey runners also fared well in Victoria. In the boys’ race, Earl Marriott’s Deon Clifford and Elgin Park’s Jake Bruchet – who fin-

ished 22nd at provincials last year – finished fourth and fifth, respectively, with Clifford edging his local rival by just 0.75 seconds. Elgin runner Alex Slade was 22nd. In the girls run, Elgin Park’s Alex Stasiuk was 12th, clocking a time of 16:46.4, while Earl Marriott’s Ally Ginther was 22nd. St. George’s took the overall team title in the boys race, followed by Victoria’s Oak Bay and Nanaimo’s Dover Bay. On the girls side, West Point Grey Academy won the title, with Oak Bay and Dover Bay in second and third, respectively. More than 600 runners – nearly all of them splattered in mud by the finish line – took part in the race.

Type 1 diabetes can’t slow Melissa Boettcher

It’s in her blood Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

When Melissa Boettcher is on the basketball court, she looks like any other player. She shoots, she rebounds, she plays good defence. And her coach at Elgin Park Secondary, Stu Graham, is quick to laud her strength and toughness on the court, too. In fact, the longtime Orcas coach calls his Grade 11 guard/forward “probably one of the strongest girls in high school basketball in this province.” Her toughness extends well beyond the basketball court. In fact, that trait is the chief reason she’s able to keep playing at all. At 10 years old, Boettcher – who is also a competitive swimmer – was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, an auto-immune disorder in which her pancreas no longer produces insulin, causing her blood sugar to skyrocket. As opposed to Type 2 diabetes, which is acquired later in life and often as a result of lifestyle issues, Type 1 diabetes can strike anyone, even otherwise healthy people such as Boettcher. “I started getting a little bit sick,

Depending on how she’s doing, she’ll reach for one or the other; the water helps lower high levels, the sugar-filled sports drink helps increase a low count. And on the court, her coach is quick to call for a substitution if Boettcher feels her body getting sluggish. “I’ve had to talk to officials and say, ‘I need a sub.’ They say, ‘No, you can’t have one now,’ and I’ll say, ‘No, she needs to come off right now, I’ll explain later,’” said Graham. “I’m sure there are times where she takes it to the limit, because she’s so competitive,” Graham continued. “Obviously, she’s very special, the kind of kid who is very driven, very tough.” November is Diabetes Awareness Month, and Nov. 14 is World Diabetes Day, which aims to bring awareness to the disease. In Canada, more than three million people suffer from diabetes, but only 240,000 have Type 1.

Joey’s Open back on court Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

In the three years since Josef Brabanec started his annual tennis tournament at Hazelmere Tennis Club, it’s grown in all aspects – from number of competitors, spectators and budget, too. “The budget has quadrupled since the first one,” he said. Now, with a new title sponsor, the Orbitz Joey’s Open – which will hit the court later this month – continues to grow in 2010. The three-tiered tournament begins Tuesday, Nov. 23 with a qualifying round for Hazelmere members, with the winner from that mini-tournament advancing to what Brabanec called the “pro qualifying round” on Nov. 25 – which will feature a handful of top players from around the Lower Mainland, including Surrey’s Rattan Gill, a veteran of the past two tournaments, and Matt Martin, an Earl Marriott Secondary grad who went on to play collegiately at Presbyterian College in South Carolina. One day later, on Friday, Nov. 26, the winner of the previous

The tournament features a round-robin format Friday and early Saturday, followed by Sunday’s final. As a result of the larger budget, the prize money is also increased this year. The sixth-place finisher earns $250, while $350 is earmarked for fifth place. Semifinalists get $500 apiece, $1,000 goes to the second-place finisher, with the winner pocketing $2,000. Action Friday begins at 6:30 p.m. at Hazelmere Tennis Club, with play on Saturday and Sunday set for 4 p.m. Brabanec is expecting a packed house at the tennis club, especially for Sunday’s final. “Last year was terrific – you couldn’t get anybody else in here.

Cassia offers brandnew townhomes and garden flats in an ideal North Burnaby neighbourhood that is quiet, yet central ›› p.2

November 11, 2010

Give the gift of warmth GVHBA gears up for 15th Coats for Kids initiative TRICIA LESLIE He noticed them on his way to work one cold winter morning, 15 years ago. Just regular kids, trudging their way to school, as usual ... but they weren’t dressed for the chilly weather. At first, Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association president and CEO Peter Simpson thought the youngsters were, perhaps, going for the ‘I’m too cool to wear a winter jacket’ attitude that youth often strive to exude. “It was a particularly cold day, and I thought either they’re not wearing (winter coats) or they don’t have any to wear,” Simpson says. “I figured it was best to err on the side of caution.” He got to work, talked to others involved in the GVHBA, and Coats for Kids was born. This year, the 15th annual Coats for Kids campaign kicks off on Nov. 15 and runs until Nov. 30. In addition to the GVHBA office, the public can drop off donations at 33 GVHBA member companies at 46 locations in 13 municipalities – including several Black Press community newspaper offices – throughout Metro Vancouver. “Last year the response to Coats for Kids was heartwarming as Lower Mainland residents donated more than 3,000 coats, scarves, gloves, blankets and new, unwrapped toys and gifts for distribution to children, teenagers and adults,” says GVHBA chairman Todd Senft. “I am delighted so many prominent members of our association are participating.” Both Senft and Simpson emphasize that any donation is good. New or gently used winter coats, scarves, gloves, toques, fleece or down vests, blankets, sweaters – any warm clothing is welcome, as well as unwrapped gifts and even monetary donations. All Coats for Kids donations go to the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau, an organization with many initiatives that help provide a brighter Christmas to local families in need. Every year, thousands of coats are collected along with other donations, and Simpson says

he is constantly amazed by the generosity from those who donate. He notes that in past years, some GVHBA members have even gone out and purchased brand-new coats to donate – one member brought in a box of new coats last year. And the public is just as generous, Simpson says. “The public has opened their hearts and

their closets and have supported this in a huge way ... they’re the ones who make it happen,” he says. “There are a lot of people out there who struggle, and they do it very quietly and don’t ask for help. We want to make sure those people – and those people’s kids – are taken care of, and this way, it’s anonymous.” Visit www.gvhba.org for a full list of dropoff sites.

Home sales steady in Metro Van Local home sales have remained steady over the past four months, indicating stability in the local residential housing market, reports the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver. “With the MLS (the industry’s listing service) sales-to-active-listing inventory ratio indicating a buyer’s market, properties appropriately priced are selling,” states a REBGV release. According to the MLS Housing Price Index, the benchmark price for all residential properties in Greater Vancouver over the past 12 months has increased by 4.6 per cent to $579,349 in October 2010 from $553,702 in October 2009. Since June, residential home prices in Metro Vancouver have remained relatively unchanged, declining by 0.2 per cent. “We’ve seen a lot more consistency and less volatility in recent months when it comes to both number of sales and pricing, although it’s important to remember that conditions often vary between communities and neighbourhoods,” says REBGV president Jake Moldowan. Residential property sales totalled 2,337 in October, a 5.3 per cent increase compared to September. While sales in October 2010 were down compared to sales in October of 2009, last month’s sales represent a 71.3 per cent increase over the 1,364 residential sales in October of 2008. “As we enter the final two months of the year, buyer demand is in closer alignment with supply than we’ve seen for most of 2010,” Moldowan says. “Those buying today recognize that they still have a chance to enter the market with near-record low interest rates, while gradual reductions in inventory have eased downward pressure on prices.” The benchmark price for detached homes increased by 6.3 per cent from October 2009 to $796,883, says the REBGV.

‘These are not cookie-cutter homes’

Cassia offers new homes in a great location Finding a new home in a vibrant community – in a quiet neighbourhood that is convenient to all amenities as well as central in Metro Vancouver – may seem like a dream to local homebuyers. But dreams can come true. Guildford Brook Estates Inc.’s Cassia, a distinctive collection of 60 garden flats and townhomes located at the foot of Burnaby Mountain, offers brand-new homes at affordable prices; one-bedroom homes start at $204,900. In this ideal location, Cassia is part of the energetic North Burnaby community, which offers a wide range of shops, schools – including the popular Burnaby Mountain university, SFU – restaurants, parks and recreation facilities. Burnaby Mountain offers kilometres of hiking and biking trails and a mountain bike park, while Kensington Park and Community Centre are just blocks away. Barnet Beach – Burnaby’s only salt water beach – is close by, and a myriad of shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities await, from the stores at Kensington Square to the many shops at Metropolis at Metrotown. “Our location sets us apart ... we’re right on the 135 bus route in North Burnaby, at the foot of Burnaby Mountain.

floorplans for the 60 homes. “These are not cookie-cutter homes ... (each floorplan) expresses a lot of personality. They’re all quite different,” she says. Blending traditional charm and contemporary style, the townhomes and flats at Cassia reflect a demand for quality and every modern convenience. Kitchens come with sleek, clean cabinetry in walnut or suede, polished quartz countertops, European tile backsplashes and stainless steel appliance packages. Bathrooms are calming, with sleek porcelain tiles, soaker tubs and modern polished chrome accents. An artfully designed garden and courtyard makes it easy for homeowners to enjoy their balconies and patios, which are positioned for privacy. Interested buyers are coming from all over the Lower Mainland, Lakos says, from Vancouver and Burnaby to Richmond and Surrey. “A lot of people coming in have grown up here,” she says, and notes that while those homebuyers may not be able to afford a single-detached home, they can likely find a new home they’ll love at Cassia. “This is a unique and affordable opportunity to live in North Burnaby in a new, contemporary home.” One-bedroom Cassia homes start from $204,900; two-bedroom, one-level homes start from $339,900; townhomes start from $409,900 and three-bedroom townhomes start from $449,900. There are also special promotions on to help eliminate the impact of the HST on homebuyers, Lakos says. Visit www.cassialiving.com for more information.

War. Art. Theft. Greed. Denial. Justice DORE - Barbara Jane (nee Hanna) June 19, 1930November 6, 2010 It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our beloved wife and mother, Barbara. She is survived by her loving husband of 60 years, Walter as well as her children, Philip, Michael (Valarie), Kathryn (Don Hall) and Heather (Geoff Grognet) and son-inlaw Ed Hall. Our dear sister, Leslie Hall, predeceased her only 5 short weeks ago. Barbara will also be missed by her grandchildren, Andrea, Alana, Kelly, Chris, Jenna, Skye and Kivrin as well as great-granddaughter, Hannah, many loving nieces, nephews and cousins. Barbara was the daughter of the late F.J. and Muriel Hanna of Ottawa, Ontario and sister to Major General James Hanna and the late Elizabeth Lawler of Ottawa. Mom will always be remembered for her kindness, sense of humour and adventure, and her ladylike manners. She had many good friends, especially in our adopted province of Nova Scotia. She loved good company, travel and had a passion for watching ďŹ gure skating. We celebrated her 60th wedding anniversary and 80th birthday last June as a whole family for the last time. We wish to thank the wonderful staff of Peace Arch Hospital, especially 6 North who took such good care of Mom during her 65 day stay. A memorial to celebrate Barbaraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life will be held on Saturday November 13th, 2010 at 2pm at St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Presbyterian Church, George St, White Rock, B.C.

ADVERTISING FEATURE

Dodge still offers great value for the money in the Avenger R/T By Jim Robinson Metroland Newspapers Carguide Magazine.

Readers are no doubt familiar with the trials and tribulations Chrysler is just starting to emerge from. With new partner Fiat and all the cars it brings like Alfa Romeo, there is a certain optimism within the organization. In the meantime, there are several vehicles in Chrysler showrooms that offer great value for the money and one of them is the Dodge Avenger. The current Avenger went on the market five years ago and marked the return of Dodge into the mid-size segment after the absence of a decade. For 2010, Dodge has simplified the lineup that still has three trim levels but does away with the 2.7–litre Flex Fuel V6. With virtually no ethanol filling stations in the county, it didn’t make sense to keep it. The entry level SE and mid-level SXT both use the 2.4-litre four-cylinder "world engine" that was designed to be powerful an d fuel thrifty at the same time. With 173 hp and 166 lb/ft of torque, consumption is listed at 9.7L/100 km (29 mpg) city and 6.6L/100 km (43 mpg) highway. The SE comes with air conditioning, cruise control, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, power locks/ windows and keyless entry and front seat and side curtain airbags. The SXT is seen by Dodge as its volume seller and, like the SE, is equipped with a four-speed automatic transmission. It is extensively fitted out with fourwheel disc brakes and ABS, power eight-way driver's seat, 17-inch wheels and what I think is a breakthrough, the YES Essential seating fabric which is stain, moisture, fade and microbial resistant. Tested here is the topline R/T that starts life as a SXT ($24,795). The big-ticket option ($2,225) is the 3.5-litre V6 producing 235 hp and 232 lb/ft of torque through a six-speed Auto/Stick transmission (that adds $275) with sequential manual shift mode. Fuel consumption is rated at 12.9L/100 km (22 mpg) city and 7.4L/100 km (38 mpg) highway. The R/T, like the SE and SXT is front-drive only. Allwheel-drive was an option in the past but it has been dropped.

That price for the R/T engine option also includes 19 amenities some of which are heated, leather front bucket seats, trunk lid spoiler, sport suspension with fore and aft stabilizer bards and “Firm Feel” power steering. Other options fitted to this car included $525 for electronic stability control and $750 for the Media Centre/infotainment system with 30 Gig hard drive (enough to hold 6,700 songs) with 6.5-inch touch screen monitor. Including other options like the $500 18–inch aluminum-clad wheels and the $1,400 destination fee, the bottom line was $31,435. One nifty feature is a four-can pop cooler they call the Chill Zone in a slot above the glove box. Vents coming from the air conditioner cool it. While the 2010 Avenger is only about half-an-inch longer than the last generation Sebring (on which the Avenger is based), it is a full four inches taller and that means a noticeably larger interior. The driver, for instance, sits 2.5 inches higher than in the last Sebring. There's also 2.5 inches more headroom and 1.2 inches more shoulder room. With the foldforward front passenger seat, the driver can create a very useable worktable. If your laptop is Bluetooth enabled as well as your phone, it means you may never have to go to the office again. The Avenger is one of the very few cars my supersized son finds comfortable in terms of legroom and back support. In fact, of all the cars I’ve brought home over the years, the Avenger is his hands-down favourite. Driving one of his lanky friends home from school, the friend remarked that the back seat has lots of room even with my son sitting with the front passenger seat all the way back. But to give a better idea of how big it is on the inside, with the front passenger seat folded flat and the rear seat folded, an eight-foot ladder stows with ease. The 3.5–litre V6 is a punchy unit that makes the most of the six-speed transmission to the point shifts are imperceptible. Of course that changes when you drop down to the manual mode where you can hold the car in any gear longer for more rapid acceleration. And in winter, being able to start off and hold in second or

Dodge continues to have a strong presence in the mid-size sedan segment with the 2010 Avenger (R/T shown) that features signature design cues like the crosshair grille and a more sporting stance than the similar Chrysler Sebring. The interior of the R/T features leather seating and more than enough room for five adults. Front seats are heated and the LED interior lights swivel to point in any desired direction.

third is a blessing on a snowy day. The MacPherson front and multi-link rear suspensions are sport tuned on the R/T meaning stiffer springs and modified shock rebound rates. Also fitted on the R/T are 18-inch alloy wheels with performance tires. I don’t drive hard so I can’t comment on the prowess of the sport suspension over the standard, but it sure soaked up the bumps of passing over a set of triple train tracks. Summing up, the 2010 Avenger in the form of the SE and SXT offer almost full-size car interior passenger volume at a compact car price. The R/T with the extra power of the V6 makes for a great long-distance or long-commute vehicle. Either way, this car does not deserve to be overlooked by the value conscious, family sedan buyer.

DODGE AVENGER R/T 2010 AT A GLANCE BODY STYLE: Mid-size sedan. DRIVE METHOD: front-engine, front-wheeldrive. ENGINE: 3.5-litre, V6 (235 hp, 232 lb/ft) FUEL ECONOMY: S12.9L/100 km (22 mpg) city, 7.4L/100 km (38 mpg) highway. PRICE: $31,435 as tested including $1,400 shipping fee. WEBSITE: www.dodge.ca
