Euthanasia a court decision

Killer pit bull awaits her fate Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

The fate of a pit bull that attacked and killed a yorkie-poo in White Rock Monday remains unclear. And while the city’s director of development services expects it will be “weeks” before he has any firm answer in his hands, the dog won’t be going home. “The one thing I can say is we won’t be releasing it to the owner,” Paul Stanton said. “That decision’s been made. Given that we’ve already told the owner to remove the dog from the city and she didn’t, the owner is incapable of properly looking after the dog.” The female Staffordshire pit bull was impounded by the city Monday following a vicious afternoon contributed photo The pit bull’s photo, attack on a leashed, nine-year-old yorkieon file at the city. poodle cross. The attack, which occurred at the corner of Marine Drive and Stevens Street, was not the pit bull’s first. It was, however, her first known kill. Stanton said he needs the police report from Monday’s attack and a comprehensive log of previous incidents involving the dog before any court application can be made. Stanton would not say if he will ask to have the dog put down, but did say a court would have to rule the dog dangerous before such permission would be granted. He has heard from residents both opposed to and in favour of euthanizing the pit bull, and described the decision as “not easy.” The final call is not the city’s, he said. “We don’t get the final decision, the court does,” Stanton said. “We’ll do what is best for the community.” News of the gruesome incident sparked � see page 6

No plans to return to a direct-payment system: minister

Autism funding delays hurt families Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

After more than a year struggling with the provincial autism-funding system, Elaine Raynault fears she will lose the therapists who have sparked significant progress in her 10-year-old autistic son. The South Surrey resident said son Rowan’s “team” – consisting of four consultants and interventionists – are reconsidering their jobs due to unreliable payments by B.C.’s Autism Funding Unit. “My interventionists were not being paid, not being paid on time; they would have some very minor (error) on the invoice submitted, and I wouldn’t be notified and they wouldn’t be notified. Messages weren’t returned, some invoices were lost,” Raynault said, noting the Ministry of Children and Family Development had committed to paying service providers within 30 days of invoicing the AFU. “In one case, my therapists waited over three months.” It wasn’t always this difficult, Raynault said. Before last year, families could opt to pay their team through a direct funding option,

in which the government provided money to parents, who administered payment to service providers themselves. “When we had direct funding, at least… you could reliably manage your own budget and be a good employer,” Raynault said. But Children and Family Development Minister Mary Polak told Peace Arch News Thursday the direct-funding system was a problem for the majority of families who used it. “They had difficulties in keeping track of what things they had paid for, Mary Polak we had some very difficult minister of family circumstances where families had paid the money out for services that, in the end, weren’t appropriate, and we ended up having to claw money back from them,” she said. “It was a very onerous process on the part of the families to have to keep track of all that paperwork.” In September 2009, the ministry eliminated direct funding, making the invoice

system – in which service providers submit invoices to, and receive payment from, the AFU – the only option. South Surrey resident Louise Witt said the move resulted in therapists being paid late “to the point that some of them are considering leaving the field altogether because of the financial uncertainty they face.” “Families are extremely anxious that they can start losing their therapists,” said Witt, spokesperson for Families for Early Autism Treatment of BC. “There’s already not nearly enough people in the province to help children with autism, not enough skilled people... and it’s very difficult to recruit new ones under these conditions.” Raynault said she is also concerned about the amount of money being spent on administration of the invoices – funds that could be going directly to autism treatment. But Polak said staff – under the directfunding system – were spending “an ordinate amount of time trying to help families.” Polak admitted there were challenges in the invoicing system’s transition year, as the AFU experienced a rush of families wanting � see page 6

Keep in mind that police dogs are larger animals and are very highly-trained In that case, the dog’s owner made no attempt to separate the dogs and allowed the pit bull to keep running after the attack. It was a case of complete irresponsibility. The City of White Rock needs to take a long, hard look at how it deals with animal enforcement. It is clear that, in this case, its attempts at enforcement were feeble at best, and negligent at worst. Cities can do more. If people wish to own pit bulls or other dogs that are known to attack at random, they should be prepared when obtaining dog licences to sign waivers, specifically giving the city the immediate right to seize the dog if there are any incidents which can be verified by independent witnesses. Any seizures would have to be based on more that the word of an aggrieved neighbour with an axe to grind. While a similar provision should be in place for the owners of any breeds that can become vicious, it appears obvious that the vast majority of these types of problems relate to pit pulls. People have a right to own dogs. At the same time, they have a responsibility to take care of them and ensure that they are not a public nuisance or danger. If they abuse that right, or show continued negligence, they should be barred from owning dogs for long periods of time. Frank Bucholtz writes Fridays for the Peace Arch News.

More than 100 animals to remain at South Surrey facility

Rescued critters relocating to Alberta Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

File photo

Cinemazoo owner Gary Oliver.

The owner of a South Surrey rescue shelter under investigation for animal cruelty has agreed to reduce the number of critters in his care. Urban Safari Rescue Society’s Gary Oliver said Wednesday he is going to donate nearly two dozen animals to a facility in Alberta and surrender “a bunch” of other animals to the BC SPCA, to comply with orders issued following visits to the 1395 176 St. shelter. “I had to make decisions on what was best for the animals, what was best for the growth of the company,” said Oliver, who also runs Cinemazoo Animal Agency. “I’m backed into a corner, without a doubt, for many reasons: for the circumstances of the facility not being adequate enough to house the animals, and not having enough volunteers or

money.” The site, which Oliver moved his operations to in August, came under scrutiny of the BC SPCA last month, following public complaints. The recent deaths of at least three caimans in Oliver’s care heightened the concern, and orders related to the number and welfare of all the animals were made. Eileen Drever, senior animal protection officer with the BC SPCA, told Peace Arch News that a Nov. 23 meeting with Oliver went “pretty good.” “He made a large number of improvements and he has agreed to surrender a number of animals to us,” Drever said. By order of the Ministry of Environment, 21 controlled alien species – including alligators and venomous snakes – are being donated to a facility in Drumheller, about 130 km east of Calgary. About 25 other animals – snakes, geckos, turtles

and red-eared sliders – are to be surrendered to the SPCA next week, Drever said. The surrendered animals will be placed in “approved rescues,” not adopted out, Drever noted. Some could be euthanized if a placement cannot be made. And investigation into the caimans’ deaths continues, Drever added, noting their demise was deemed consistent with hypothermia. More than 100 animals are to remain at the South Surrey facility. Oliver said that while he is optimistic about the opportunity the changes will give him to regroup and rebuild, he is frustrated and saddened at what he sees as an even bigger loss – children will no longer be able to see the animals. “More than anything, I feel so sorry for the children of B.C. I think they’re being neglected their rights to see these animals.”

Gaudry guilty Kip Gaudry has pleaded guilty to one charge of possessing child pornography. Gaudry – the former Delta municipal director of engineering – made the plea Nov. 22 in Surrey Provincial Court. A pre-sentence hearing has been scheduled for Jan. 13. The 59-year-old Gaudry, now a White Rock resident, will remain free on bail in the meantime. He made no plea on a second charge of accessing child pornography, which will likely be stayed by the Crown prosecutor. In March 2009, Gaudry quit as Delta’s director of engineering after police searched an office at the municipal hall and a house in North Delta as part of a childpornography investigation. Gaudry was allowed to go free on $10,000 bail and conditions of release that ban him from being in the presence of children under-14 without another adult present. In 1995, Gaudry pleaded guilty to nine counts of sexual assault. He now faces trial on a charge of indecent assault in connection with a 1973 incident in Winnipeg. – Dan Ferguson

Water supply tunnel under Fraser River to replace existing main at ‘significant’ risk of failing

‘High-priority’ pipe to cost $230 million Jeff Nagel Black Press

At an estimated cost of $230 million, Metro Vancouver’s latest megaproject will be a big outlay for regional taxpayers, even though it’s basically a glorified water pipe. Construction begins next year on the Port Mann Water Supply Tunnel, replacing the existing water main across the Fraser River that delivers much of the drinking water for Surrey, Delta and Langley and is at a significant risk of failing. “It’s a lot of money, but it’s a high priority for us,” says Frank Huber, Metro’s division manager of engineering support and technical services. A tunnel boring machine will act like a mechanical mole to grind a one-kilometrelong tunnel 30 metres below the bottom of the river, just downstream of the Port Mann Bridge. The completed tunnel will link up to two 60-metre deep shafts on either side of the river and ensure water from the Coquitlam

Supply runs low in summer

Rapid growth in Surrey and Langley is starting to stretch Metro’s ability to keep up with water demand. It only becomes a problem on the hottest days of summer, when hoses run overtime to water parched lawns and gardens. But on some of those days this past summer, local reservoirs that store drinking water in the Surrey area fell to a low of about 20 per cent of their capacity. The reservoirs – some are raised tanks, others are submerged bunkers – are filled up at night but they can sometimes come close to running dry on the hottest days. “Our transmission system can be stretched virtually to its limit at that point,” said Dan Donnelly, Metro water treatment and systems control division manager. Donnelly said the region is planning to build more local reservoirs, including one in Clayton, but added the new water line under the Fraser River will also increase capacity.

Loss of parking ‘hit us full in the face’ says resident Tracy Holmes

Planned road narrowing to accommodate a bike path as part of the Pioneer Greenway network south of Highway 99 will eliminate street parking for residents along a stretch of 148 Street. And while a few homeowners have expressed concerns about the loss to city officials, the longterm benefits of the network for the community as a whole take precedence, said Surrey engineer Philip Bellefontaine. “Parking is always contentious,” Bellefontaine said Monday. “We do respect that and we try to maintain parking whenever we can. “But when there’s a choice between that sort of function of the road and moving things, the parking is the one that falls off.” A contract to build a Highway 99 overpass linking neighbourhoods in the King George Boulevard corridor with West Rosemary Heights was awarded in July, with the cost – approximately $2.7 million – to be shared between the city, the province and federal government. South of Highway 99, the overpass will land in a .62-acre site at 34 Avenue and 148 Street that was acquired by the city last year for parkland. A December 2009 public open house found the majority of attendees supportive of the plan. But while resident James Koleszar said he was among those who felt the project was “kind of neat” at the time, news last week that approximately eight on-street parking spots are going to disappear with work to narrow the road came as a surprise to him and his neighbours. The space is needed to accommodate a threemetre wide pedestrian/ cyclist path. “It kind of hit us full in the face, in the last five or six days,” Koleszar said. “You won’t be able to park in front of your house anymore.”

Some residents are upset that the addition of a bike path has eliminated some parking along a stretch of 148 Street. And while Koleszar, who has lived in the area since the homes were built about four years ago, recognizes on-street parking is not something the city guarantees – each home has a detached garage and parking pad in back – “it’s something we feel we have a right to.” Bellefontaine said Koleszar and “two or three” others have expressed concern with the plans, and he has promised to look at any opportunities to “tweak” the changes. He noted another option the city looked at was cutting three metres into an existing berm, which would then

necessitate erecting a 1½- to twofoot retaining wall. The combination of the significant additional expense that would entail, along with the negative visual impact and loss of the buffer prompted officials to go with narrowing the road, Bellefontaine said. Additional parking will be freed up on 147A Street, he added, meaning the overall neighbourhood impact is “relatively minor.” Bellefontaine expects to receive detailed designs for the project next week, and anticipated construction could get underway in early December.

� from page 1 a flurry of online comments to peacearchnews.com, as well as calls and emails. Most who responded said euthanizing the dog is the only reasonable option in this case, with some debating the safety of pit bulls as a breed. Peace Arch News’ attempts to identify and contact the pit bull’s owner were unsuccessful. Andrea McArthur is certain this is the same dog that attacked her Cairn terrier, Moxie, in November 2008. While she said she hates the idea of putting any dog down, if the pit bull hasn’t been brought under control by now, it likely never will be. “At this point, I don’t think there’s anything else they can do with it,” McArthur said Wednesday. “It’s been let go too long. I think it’s too late for this dog.” In a letter to PAN, Julie Thorsen writes that both of her dogs were

attacked by the same pit bull in June 2009. The attacking dog’s owner paid her vet bills and promised to keep the dog in her yard, Thorsen notes. “I forgave the owner… but enough is enough,” she writes. “Euthanization is far more humane to all concerned, the dog included.” Some online comments said blame for the behaviour rests with her owner more than the dog itself, and even called for criminal charges. White Rock RCMP Sgt. Roland Pierschke said as the city has taken the lead on the incident, charges are not in the works. The best remedy is the city’s bylaw, he said. Other comments praised the actions of letter-carrier Roger Jendral, who tried to stop the attack. At least one city councillor believes the dog should be destroyed.

“I don’t have any doubt,” Coun. Al Campbell said Thursday. “The thing is out of control. I don’t think we have a choice.” Campbell was also adamant the dog’s owners not get off lightly. He wants their identity made public, and to have them prevented from ever owning another dog. “It’s very sad. Very, very sad. A dog dies and another dog will probably die, as a result of a very bad owner,” he said. “Whose dog is this? Who allowed this to happen? You’ve got to take it to who was responsible.” The pit bull’s owner has been fined numerous times over the years in connection with the dog roaming at large and attacks on other dogs. She was ordered in spring of 2009 to remove the pit bull from White Rock. The Staffordshire is currently being held at a commercial kennel in South Surrey.

FEAT BC would be to have autism treatment covered under Medicare, Witt said the organization is looking for the directfunding option to be reinstated. “We’ve been trying to make our concerns heard to the minister of child and family development and the AFU, but it just continues to fall on deaf ears.” Polak said the ministry has no plan to bring back direct funding. “We can work to do more, I’m sure, to improve the system that we’ve got, but nevertheless, that

would not be an option that we would be considering.” Raynault said her therapy team has made a “night and day difference” in Rowan, but worrying about the team’s future causes unneeded anxiety. “(Therapy) works and I don’t complain about it. It’s my life and it’s my passion, but to have my hands tied with the money is such an unnecessary hindrance. It’s just one more thing. It’s like the last straw for families who are over-taxed and over-stressed.”

Hogg backs Abbott in Liberal leadership race Tom Fletcher Black Press

Shuswap MLA George Abbott was flanked by supporters from the B.C. Liberal caucus as well as community and first nations supporters as he announced his bid for the party leadership Thursday. Joining Abbott at his announcement at the Pan Pacific Hotel in Vancouver were Environment Minister Murray Coell and MLAs Gordon Hogg, John van Dongen, Richard Lee, John Rustad and Don McRae. Hogg (Surrey-White Rock) said other MLAs not present but supporting the Abbott campaign are Kash Heed, Norm Letnick and John Slater.

George Abbott

In his speech, Abbott pledged that if he is chosen by party members to take over for Premier Gordon Campbell, he will move up the date of the initiative vote on scrapping the harmonized sales tax so it is held by June 24, 2011. The government would have to amend

legislation to change the scheduled date of Sept. 24, 2011, and Elections B.C. officials estimate it would take several months after that to set up polling stations and conduct a vote. Abbott said if he wins the leadership, he will abide by Campbell’s promise to repeal the HST if a simple majority of those who vote want it gone. While avoiding criticism of Campbell, Abbott said he plans to run a more “collaborative” government that will reach out to people in all regions. The

popularity of the party is “in the ditch” and the new leader has a big job ahead to regain public trust. “I hope the next bump we feel is vehicle coming out of the ditch and onto the road,” Abbott said. A berry farmer and college political science teacher before entering provincial politics in 1996, Abbott emphasized his rural roots and emphasized the importance of developing B.C.’s resource economy. Also joining Abbott at the announcement were Klahoose First Nation Chief Ken Brown,

Gitsxan Chief Elmer Derrick, Sicamous Mayor Malcolm MacLeod, Armstrong Mayor Chris Pieper, Salmon Arm Mayor Marty Bootsma and Richmond councillor and former MLA Greg HalseyBrandt.

Gun smuggler gets 55 days A U.S. man was sentenced to 55 days in jail last week, after pleading guilty to trying to smuggle two guns into Canada. Jason Woodward pleaded to the Customs Act charge in Surrey Provincial Court, Canada Border Services Agency announced Friday. Woodward was arrested July 8 after Canadian border guards at the Pacific Highway crossing found a 9mm handgun and a shotgun in the northbound

traveller’s vehicle. According to CBSA, the Alaska-bound Woodward initially told guards about the weapons. When told he couldn’t bring them into Canada, he agreed to return to the states and have them shipped to Alaska before trying to cross the border again. But when he returned to the crossing, Woodward couldn’t produce a shipping receipt and was referred for secondary examination. Before the search began, he

No winners in dog-attack case

T

he right decision is often the hardest one to make. And in the case of the fate of a pit bull impounded Monday in White Rock, there’s little doubt any decision will be unpopular. The off-leash and unsupervised dog was picked up after it killed a yorkie-poo at Stevens Street and Marine Drive. It wasn’t the dog’s first offence, but it was the worst in her known history. As is the norm when such incidents hit the news, calls for the pit bull’s destruction have been steady this week, with the bulk of reasoning centred on ‘it will only do it again.’ Given the track record noted by the city – numerous complaints have been logged regarding the dog roaming at-large and attacking other dogs – the statement is difficult to dispute. But should the dog be blamed? Many who have responded agree the dog likely can’t be rehabilitated. But there is also strong consensus that it is the dog’s owner who is at fault. Why was the dog alone and wandering the streets, without so much as a collar, when her owner – fully aware of what the dog has done in the past – had been warned many times to keep her in check? It can’t be ignored that the owner didn’t comply with an order made more than a year ago to remove the dog from White Rock. It’s unclear, in fact, if the dog ever left the city, which raises the point that rules with no chance of enforcement are meaningless – and clearly, in this case, served as no deterrent. Ask anyone who has been on the receiving end of a dog attack, or who knows someone who has, and the solution is simple: the dog must die. Put the same question to the offending dog’s owner, and odds are, they’ll adamantly protest, particularly if it is a first offence. The decision to euthanize a dog cannot be made lightly. It is unfair to brand an entire breed dangerous, though many do. The reality is owning a dog is a big responsibility, one that demands consideration not just for the dog itself, but for the people and animals it will interact with throughout its life. Unfortunately, if a dog owner can’t or won’t live up to that commitment, perhaps there is no choice – and that, too, is a tragedy. Sadly, sometimes even with the right decision, there are no real winners. Just more victims.

In the end, I managed to make it through to the final whistle unscathed – dignity loosely intact – but also armed with the knowledge that being a broadcaster was a lot harder than it looked, no matter what my 12-year-old self might try to tell you. As a writer, if I can’t come up with a word or phrase, I’ll sit and stare at my computer screen until inspiration strikes. On the radio, you’re afforded no such luxury, which is why I left the rink that night knowing I was better suited for the world of print media. As I walked out to my car after the game, my radio partner caught up to me and thanked me for filling in on such short notice. I did a good job, he said, and though I couldn’t tell if he was serious or just being polite, I have my suspicions. “We’ll have to get you on again sometime,” he said. “Sure,” I answered, instantly regretting it. “Just find me before a game the next time you need me.” He nodded and walked into the night. I didn’t show up early to the rink for the rest of the season. Just in case. Nick Greenizan is the sports reporter at the Peace Arch News.

Worth remembering

Road rules part of the problem

Editor: Re: Forgive my ignorance, Nov. 17 letters. I came to tears on more than one occasion as I read Brenda Howard’s letter to the editor. It meant a lot to me that, at age 50, Brenda has recognized what the First World War and Second World War veterans had done for our country. I am older than Brenda, and grew up listening to war stories, some funny and some very sad. My dad was in the Second World War and was wounded twice. My dad, in his later years, still had many bad dreams of what he experienced. He was 17 when he enlisted, lying about his age as many young soldiers did back then. When my dad retired in B.C., he got very involved in researching. He ensured the names of Canadian casualties were accurately recorded. It was a natural progression from contacting the living to making sure that the dead were properly remembered. Cliff Chadderton – head of The War Amputations of Canada – would refer people to my dad, as he knew that if anyone could find the information, my dad would. On Sept. 3, 1998, my dad was given a letter of commendation from Prince Charles. The letter commended him for all of his dedication with his research, and my dad was featured in the Langley Times on Sept. 20, 1998. My dad passed away in 2007, and each Remembrance Day the family attends his graveside and places a wreath full of poppies in his honour. I share just a small portion of this and hope that more people like Brenda will attend a Remembrance Day service somewhere next year, and wear a poppy. There are so many war vets that have so many stories, all worth hearing about. Thank you. Trudy Dollman, Surrey ■ It was hard for me to not notice how the editorship of the Peace Arch News conveniently excluded from the letters pages anything other than conventional platitudes regarding ‘the heroes’ of the First World War, the Second World War, the Korean War and the recent antiArab ‘wars.’ Conveniently absent was how Canada shamefully excludes from Remembrance Day ceremonies those who contributed to – and even died for – the vicious Vietnam War. Those soldiers – especially the black U.S. soldiers – were often dying horribly, and likely mostly for their fellow U.S. citizens, many of whom were liberals back in the late ’60s and early ’70s and hated the soldiers for fighting and killing in Vietnam, while the ultraconservatives, though supporting Americans fighting the war, really did not care much for the black men amongst those fighting and/or dying in Vietnam. Let’s have some objectivity, please. Frank G. Sterle, Jr., White Rock

Editor: Re: The business of pay parking, Nov. 19 letters. In response to Bryn Taylor’s letter to the editor, pay parking does hurt business. There are many options for dining out and having to pay for parking does deter people. Businesses on the beach know what it takes to be successful. Pay parking is a fact of life on the beach, and all the businesses want is a level playing field and some consistency. Taylor’s letter epitomizes White Rock politics – a vocal minority running the show. Something smells fishy and its not coming from the beach. Mike Hammersmark, Surrey ■ A few years ago my wife and I visited Marine Drive in White Rock. We had not been down there for a

while, so we were looking forward to it very much. We were shocked at the lack of parking and the cost of a spot when we found one. But what really put us off was the goose-stepping, rule-crazed security people we encountered. As we got out of the car and were feeding coins into the meter, a woman in a brown shirt, black pants uniform came up to us and in a very unfriendly way warned us about how our car would be towed the second the meter ran out. She demanded we watch out and not let the time expire, or we’d see for ourselves, etc. We then went for a stroll along the shops, and about half way up the east bound slope we saw a very old man shuffling along carrying a tiny dog. Another uniformed guard came up to him and began shouting in his face and blocking his path, as she told him all the things she could do to him and his dog if he dared to put it down! This was an obnoxious display of heartless authority in action.

It was clear the old fellow was quite upset and just wanted to move on. The woman would not let him do so until she was finished shrieking her rules in his face a few times over. Our short visit was even shorter than planned. We were so turned off that we could not wait to leave. My dear wife said, “This is what the whole world would be like if the Nazis had won the war.” We have not been back since. We advise all friends, family and acquaintances to avoid the area completely. Poor service and overpricing in the eateries may be partly to blame, and the parking situation is a definite turnoff and certainly a factor in the decline in profits, but the thing that put us off most in White Rock was the absolutely rude, hateful, heartless way people are treated by the authority-crazed, mindless security guards. A town that loves its “rules” and keeps making more all the time. That is a place sorely in need of re-thinking. B. McNamara, Surrey

Claudine Murray says she was sent to emergency because a medical clinic reached its quota early last Saturday.

Medical quotas test our patience Editor: I will never forget the afternoon of last Saturday, four days after my 85th birthday. The weather here in South Surrey/White Rock was unseasonably cold, and it had been snowing and the roads and sidewalks were slippery. That morning I had developed a urinary-tract infection – a painful infection with a persistent urgency to locate a washroom. In my case, this urgency had increased alarmingly. This situation can be overwhelmingly uncomfortable and embarrassing. At 2 p.m., I phoned around for local walk-in medical clinics that were open on Saturdays. The first clinic I contacted told me they were closing, but I could go to another one which was open Saturdays until 5 p.m. Luckily, I had enough cash at home, so I hurried there via taxi. I arrived at the clinic door about 2:45 p.m. Two other people were waiting to see the physician. I was told by the receptionist that the doctor could not see me and that he was not allowed to have any more patients that day, implying the clinic had reached its quota. This was a shock since I had been informed that their clinic hours are until 5 p.m. and I had arranged to go there based on that information. The receptionist told me I would have to leave and suggested I go to the emergency department at Peace Arch Hospital. I explained my urinary-tract situation was very urgent and was becoming increasingly so, and

surely one more patient would not make any difference. She apologized but was firm and insisted three times I could not stay. She then showed me the door, not even offering to wait for me to work out transportation. I said, “I am not leaving and I want to see the doctor. I suppose you will just have to call the police to remove me!” I sat down in the waiting room with the two other people. The receptionist said, “You know, the doctor won’t be paid for seeing you.” She left to consult with the doctor. He asked the receptionist to tell me to provide a urine sample. She pointed to the washroom where I was to find containers. When I saw the doctor he was quite nice. I apologized for being so insistent but explained I had to be, given my situation. He confirmed I did have an infection and wrote me a prescription for antibiotics. He explained the government had set a limit on how many patients he could see. He said doctors have been overworked because of their very large patient load. On leaving I apologized again to both the doctor and the receptionist for being so insistent. The receptionist was upset and near tears and stated she had been instructed to be so firm. The doctor said that it was alright, and for her not to be upset. I, myself, shaken and in quite an emotional state, left the clinic to find a nearby pharmacy. Claudine H. M. Murray, Surrey

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

This train derailment in Ocean Park on Nov. 11, 1914 was similar to the one that killed rail worker Albert Morrow in 1912, and one along White Rock beach in 1959.

Rail worker survives 1912 mudslide, only to die four months later in similar incident

Derailments haunt track’s long history Fourth in a special series on the Peninsula’s relationship with its rail route. Alex Browne

I

Staff Reporter

f there were such a thing as a ghost haunting the tracks of Peninsula’s beachfront rail line it ought, by rights, to be the shade of Albert Morrow. The spectre of the locomotive fireman – an employee of Great Northern Railway when the route was first opened in the early 1900s – would symbolize what local rail and environmental safety advocate Don Pitcairn now terms “the real double-edged sword” of the presence of the tracks in our community. While the railway – now the BNSF – has an undeniable place in the history of the Peninsula, Pitcairn says, it also introduced a risk factor that continues to cast a shadow over the community to this day. As recounted in Barrie Sanford’s authoritative history of the line, Railway By The Bay, in the early hours of Jan. 28, 1912, the Ontario-born Morrow, just 23 years old, was at his place in the cab of train 356, the “owl train,” steaming northward on an overnight run from Seattle to Vancouver. Just before daybreak, the train was passing through Ocean Park when Morrow and the engineer saw the kind of nightmarish vision that would strike fear into every old-time railroad man’s heart – the hillside above the track in motion, a cascade of mud moving inexorably downward into the path of the train.

days, was always classed as a hazardous occupation. According to historian Lorraine Ellenwood’s Years of Promise: White Rock 1858 - 1958, even before the line was completed a worker lost his legs in an accident, and, as early as May 1909, a GN timekeeper – last seen running to catch the “owl” train – had been found dead next to the tracks near White Rock. Two other GN fatalities followed within the first decade of the beachfront line – White Rock’s own station agent, W.A. McCray, who perished in a 1919 collision between two ‘speeder’ cars used for track maintenance, and a ‘track walker’ who died the same year in yet another of the ubiquitous mud slides that imperilled the route. In the earliest years of the line, stability of the hillside above the tracks had been compromised by extensive clearing of trees, and fires in the summer of 1910 had destroyed most of the unlogged forest on the North Bluff, making the terrain prone to slides. But over the first 50 years of the line, mudslides continued to happen with depressing regularity – causing serious derailments in 1914, 1946, 1954 and 1959 – even with the introduction in the late 1940s of slide-detector fences at crucial points between White Rock and Crescent Beach. Even when derailments were avoided through that period, wave washouts of the track – like the one that occurred in � see page 15

Tracks buried beneath seven feet of mud after 1941 slide � from page 14 the winter of 1930 in White Rock – and mudslides and landslides succeeded in holding up rail traffic for hours. The scale of such incidents can be judged by the fact that in January 1941, a slide on East Beach measured 75 feet long and buried the tracks to a depth of seven feet; while another landslide on the foreshore between White Rock and Ocean Park dumped tons of sand on the tracks. Deaths of members of the public struck by trains have been a fact of life since 1933 – the most recent when a man was hit in 2007, determined to be a suicide. In many cases recklessness and inattention have been seen as the cause of such accidents, but critics of the line say they’re inevitable when a rail line Don Pitcairn and the public are in such close proximity. rail critic Great Northern’s repeated solution was to deny any public access to the line by fencing it off, while BNSF – less draconian and more touristfriendly in approach – continues to monitor the dangers and insist on such measures as safety railings along the promenade. But mudslides pose a potentially greater hazard – and they’re far from a thing of the past, according to Pitcairn’s Surrey United Naturists and Peninsula rail-safety watchdogs SmartRail, both of which made submissions to a Transport Canada Railway Safety Act Review panel in 2008. Among points made in the submissions, it was noted that as recently as the early months of 2007, there were 12 mudslides,

The derailment of a BNSF train at White Rock beach in 1959 is the only slide on local tracks in the last 50 years. including two that held up Amtrak’s passenger service for 72 hours. The submissions also pointed out that in the winter of 1984, during a severe weather period, the City of Surrey recorded no less than 64 mudslides into the BNSF corridor in the space of two weeks. In all, they noted, there have been nine derailments since the shoreline route opened – all of them from mudslides. In seven of these cases, it appeared that “train tremor” – the vibration from the heavy passing train – initiated landslides on what Pitcairn describes as the “saturated soils of the Ocean Park bluff.”

The derailment in 1959 was the last such incident on the line in 50 years. It’s a record BNSF spokesman Gus Melonas said the company invests “millions of dollars” each year upholding, through safety inspection and other work to ensure slope and track stability. Even critics like Pitcairn acknowledge BNSF has made significant safety improvements to the railway corridor through the Peninsula – including some $5.5 million spent over the last three years in replacing worn-out segmented track with a continuous-weld rail that is stronger and more resistant to derailment forces.

But in an era in which much more hazardous materials – such as tanker cars containing chlorine, ammonia, sulphur dioxide or liquid petroleum gas – are routinely carried by freight trains, groups such as SUN and SmartRail sound the alarm that the current safety implications of a derailment for the general public are far more serious and life-threatening than could have been imagined in 1912, or even 50 years ago. Next: Safety and environmental concerns around the railway continue to be debated – while BNSF upholds its position as a ‘greener’ transportation alternative.

A Certified Specialist in Orthodontics, Dr. Williams is an active leader in the orthodontic community. She is a Fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada and a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontists. She is currently the president of the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontist, which represents the orthodontists in the eight western United States and three western Canadian provinces.

She says that the American Association of Orthodontists recommends children be evaluated by a certified orthodontist by the age of seven. “We find that an early evaluation helps us identify potential orthodontic problems early,” she said.

“We can then perform interceptive treatment, which typically helps reduce the complexity of problems later, and gives us time to get to know our patient families and to educate them as we see “We are loving South Surrey” them over time.” – DR.

A White Rock woman who is exploring alternative cancer treatments after undergoing a double mastectomy in January is looking to bring like-minded women together to share positive healing experiences. Lynda Simpson said her goal is to create a place “where it’s all positive, it’s all positive thoughts, it’s positive energy.” Simpson was diagnosed with breast cancer last December. She told Peace Arch News before heading into double-mastectomy surgery the following month that her experience could inspire others to be diligent when it comes to their health. She began recommended chemotherapy treatments shortly after her operation, but stopped after three rounds, after research lead her to conclude it didn’t make sense to “bomb your whole

Treatments choices are an individual decision, she said. “Just that there are other things they can supplement with. “Western medicine is very Band-Aid,” she said. “Your health and wellness is very body, mind and soul. I just think there’s so many people out there that, for whatever reason, they don’t know this.” Simpson noted she has found little support for her decision to pursue an alternative route, and wants to create that opportunity for both herself and others. “I would like to start a group of women… who would be interested in getting together and working the positive,” she said. “There’s so much more we can do out there.” Anyone interested in forming a group or more information may contact Simpson at lynsimp@telus.net

TRAVEL & CRUISES

CRUISE HOLIDAYS OF WHITE ROCK WINS AGAIN! By Nicky Armstrong, Cruise Holidays The 2010 Cruise Holidays Annual Convention was held at the El Dorado Royale Resort & Spa in Mexico’s Mayan Riviera near Cancun. Yes, an All Inclusive Resort and not aboard a cruise ship this year. Cruise Holidays of White Rock is a full service agency selling both land and sea vacations so a change of pace was in order as we experienced our first land based convention. Over 200 owners, agents, suppliers and guest speakers from Canada and the U.S. were in attendance. It was a great experience with a very full agenda of training sessions, meetings and networking with our peers from around North America. Everything was well organized from general sessions to break out training rooms where we learned what’s new and exciting in the world of travel and travel technology. New systems that will let us compare sailings on 5 cruise lines at one time, and then with a click of the button move all the booked information over ready to be invoiced.

Executives from many major cruise lines joined us, as well as Mark Schiffner, Vice President of Cruise Holidays and Tom Bauman, President of Travel Leaders Leisure Group, part of Travel Leaders Group, our parent company, which includes over 1,300 company-owned and franchised travel agencies in Canada and the United States. Awards night was a highlight for all of us at Cruise Holidays of White Rock. Leanne Gasiorowski, one of the Travel Consultants in our office, joined me at the convention where we were presented with the top honor of being recognized as a 3rd time winner of the prestigious President’s Circle Award. This is Cruise Holidays Highest Award presented to the top 20 offices in the US and Canada. “Technically speaking, our President’s Circle is a strict interpretation of our franchise owners’ revenue and growth, but more importantly, it’s essentially a barometer of who is reaching out to their clients in the most effective way and growing right along with their clients as they exceed their travel expectations,”

said Mark Schiffner. I’m so proud of all the 14 agents here at Cruise Holidays of White Rock. They are here because they just love ‘Travel’ and want to share their expertise with you - our clients. They continually attend training

courses or sit in on ‘webinars’, the new online in depth training available nowadays. Call us at Cruise Holidays of White Rock at 604-531-3307 or check us out online at www. cruiseholidayswhiterock.com BC reg. #2599

Elementary students collect baby items for food bank

Children helping children The Surrey Food Bank is soon to be better stocked with baby food thanks to Crescent Park Elementary students who collected hundreds of items for less-fortunate families. The school-wide effort – which began at the beginning of the month and ended last week – resulted in 677 jars of baby food, 117 medium-sized items such as formula and 67 larger products, including boxes of diapers. The collection was orchestrated by seven Grade 7s in the

community service strand of the grade’s leadership program. Principal Catherine Berron said the students phoned the food bank to find out what donations were needed most before asking each class in the school to contribute as many baby items as possible. “They did presentations to the other classes,” Berron noted. “This exercise allowed them to be more aware of baby-food costs. They didn’t realize that it was that expensive. Even in an area

like ourselves, they were amazed that so many parents needed baby food for their children.” The class that collected the most were to receive free pizza today (Friday), when delivery of the donations to the food bank is planned. “I think it’s an amazing success because it was completely managed by those students,” Berron said. “The grand total of items is 861 – I think that’s just fantastic.” - Hannah Sutherland

Going to Bat for breast cancer research Earlier this year Ball Park Sports opened its doors selling cricket, softball, hardball and fastball equipment. This Best New Business of 2010 nominee, now has a corporate promotional gift and apparel division featuring products from: • Stormtech • Firstar • Ash City • Trimark-Elevate • Kanata Blankets • Starline.com • Leedsworld.com

Baseball teams went to bat for cancer research with some very distinctivelooking equipment on Mother’s Day weekend 2010 – thanks in part to Cloverdale’s Ball Park Sports. Owner Merv Sandrel donated 48 pink baseball bats that were used for all Lower Mainland Baseball Association (LMBA) league games May 8 and 9. The games were part of a special fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society called Going to Bat for Cancer Research. All 32 teams were encouraged to collect donations from friends and family. The weekend was a roaring success raising a total of $6,354, a great job for the event in its first year.

Help your City Get a New All-Access Playground-Vote Online Your City is in the 3rd round of competition with other cities across Canada for a $250,000 grant to go towards important community-based projects. We have proposed a playground project but we NEED YOUR HELP as the grants only go to the community with the most votes … as a supporter you can vote up to 10 times in the final round. All it takes is a few minutes each day (Nov 2nd to Nov 26th) to lend your support and make a neighbourhood dream come true. This special playground in Holly Park will be accessible to all children and include a sensory wall designed for adapted usage for special needs. Vote at www. avivacommunityfund.org. Register first, then search “Surrey’s All-Access Play Area”.

Parks, Trees and Safety During windstorms the risk of tree failure in parks increases. The City recommends that during windstorm advisory events the public avoid treed park areas due to the potential for trees, or parts of trees, to fall and cause injury to park visitors. To report a potential tree hazard or tree failure on parkland call the Parks Service Request line at 604-501-5050.

ADVERTISING OPPORTUNITY! The City of Surrey’s Leisure Guide reaches well over 400,000 people with information on local recreation and leisure activities. Please visit us at www.surrey.ca/advertising for full details on our ad rates, specifications and deadlines.

related to the audit. When the BCCLA asked for a fee waiver, it said the government refused to release any documents other than the audit, arguing those documents would cause harm to law enforcement and to “intergovernmental relations or negotiations”. The government and the RCMP have confirmed that the audit exists, the BCCLA said. The association says the RCMP advised it that any decisions about release will have to be made by the provincial government, as it is the government’s document. The BCCLA said it does not have any information about the scope of the audit, whether a copy of the audit results were ever provided to the RCMP, or what, if any, the RCMP’s role was in the audit.

Hearing ordered in Taser incident Dan Ferguson Black Press

Saying the investigation of the tasering of a Skytrain passenger in Surrey three years ago was “flawed”, B.C. Police Complaint Commissioner Stan Lowe has ordered a public hearing into the incident that caused head injuries to a fare evader at the Scott Road station. The decision comes after a drawn-out disciplinary process that went all the way to the B.C. Supreme Court without settling the matter. The notice of public hearing issued by Lowe describes how Christopher Andrew Lypchuk was tasered by Transit Police Const. Dan Dickhout in a stairwell at the North Surrey transit station Sept. 13, 2007. Dickhout and another officer were conducting a sweep for fare evaders when they

came across Lypchuk, who was carrying two cans of beer and appeared intoxicated. When Dickhout and the other officer tried to write Lypchuk a ticket, he fled into a nearby stairwell. That was where Dickhout used his Taser, causing Lypchuk to fall and strike his head. The incident was one of eight Taser incidents that came to light after the BC Civil Liberties Association (BCCLA) filed a freedom of information request. The association filed a complaint in April of 2008 with the B.C. police Complaints Commissions that said the use of stun guns on people trying to avoid paying fares was “repugnant.” One week after the complaint was filed, Bob Kind, the then-chief of the transit police ordered an investigation. The Vancouver Police Department carried out the

review and cleared Const. Dickhout. Port Moody police chief Brad Parker, who reviewed the case, found the transit police officer was guilty of abusing his authority and ordered a two-day suspension, written reprimand and re-training for Dickhout. Dickhout obtained his own use of force report that said the Tasering of Lypchuk was “appropriate in the circumstances.” The battle ended up in B.C. Supreme Court, where Dickhout won a ruling late last month that ordered the Commissioner to appoint a new officer to review the case. Instead, Lowe ordered a public inquiry. Dickhout has been formally charged with one count of abuse of authority by “intentionally or recklessly (using) unnecessary force.” The hearing will be conducted by retired B.C. Supreme Court judge Ian Pitfield.

Man charged with series of sex crimes A man drugged, robbed and sexually assaulted several women in Surrey and Langley, police say. Last summer, police became aware that a male was sexually assaulting victims after they were allegedly drugged and robbed. Numerous victims were identified in Surrey, as well as one in Langley. The victims were determined to be a specifically targeted group who were engaged in a high-risk activity. On Nov. 18, Surrey resident Steven Beszedes was charged with six counts of administering a noxious substance, four counts of sexual assault, one count of robbery and one count of assault. The investigation into this matter is ongoing, as police are looking for additional victims who have not reported their assaults. The Surrey RCMP encourage anyone with further information in this matter to call the Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Unit at 604599-0502.

South Surrey artist Gary McDonald refers to it, cheekily, as “the Tour des Refuses” – and there is some truth to the jest. The fact is that, with the exception of oil painter Ann Worth, the upcoming Peninsula Art Tour (Dec. 4-5, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) features some 19 artists who have, for one reason or another, not been included in the wellestablished annual White Rock Studio Tour. But not the least of the reasons is the sheer logistics of organizing such an undertaking – which has led the White Rock tour to establish a limit of some 13 or 14 studios. But this has meant an evergrowing waiting list – and the need for a separate event, which co-organizer Nicole Carrie said, received full sanction and blessing from the White Rock original. “After planning this event we completely understand the logistics of their tour,” Carrie said. “We’ve also been careful not to call ours a studio tour or schedule it in competition,” she added. That has given it a sales advantage in a way – since the tour is not limited to working studios, it allows for groupings of several artists’ work in each venue. “It also gives people a chance to see a painting on a wall, or over a couch or a fireplace – and they can compare it to the size of their own furniture,” Carrie said. That two such events can co-exist in the community should be chalked up to the burgeoning number of artists on the Peninsula – and a marked increase in co-operation among individuals and groups fighting for notice in a fickle recession-inhibited art market.

Christmas on Peninsula offers family fun for all ages � from page 39 Russ Hiebert will help supervise Christmas craft activities. Members of White Rock council will also be in evidence, Butow said, vying for the most donations for their hand-made holly decorations; while a new feature at the community centre will allow the public to get into the act by dressing up in period costume for souvenir photos, and a supervised children’s zone will include face painting. Even this reporter has been persuaded to once again read Christmas stories and poems for children (of all ages) down at Coffee With Attitude at Five Corners (1-3 p.m.).

Among other activities during the day are several markets and fairs starting in the morning. These include the Breakfast at Bethlehem event at First United Church (9.am.-noon) which will include living tableaux, a petting zoo and crafts, running concurrently with the South Fraser Women’s Services children’s toys sale at the same location. A Christmas cafe and charity fair at Star of the Sea Hall (10 a.m. to 3 p.m.) will feature sales by many local charities, plus refreshments. At Miramar Village, food vendors will serve pancakes from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., then hotdogs and hamburgers until 5 p.m., while the Christmas market at

the community centre will feature a Victorian-style old-fashioned theme, plus a food concession, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Salvation Army Church will feature three film showings: A Christmas Carol (10 a.m.), The Nativity (11:45 a.m.) and The Chronicle of Narnia (1:30 p.m.), plus offering its parking lot for free parking throughout the day (connecting with the shuttle bus running every half hour). From 10 a.m. the White Rock BIA’s Christmas on the Rock event will encourage visits to five participating businesses with an opportunity to win in a prize draw, while an open house at Coast Capital Playhouse (11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.)

will include tours, tea and snacks. Laura’s Fashion Fabrics will give participants a chance to machine embroider a Christmas card, while Color Groove Ceramic Art Studio will offer the public opportunity to hand paint Christmas ornaments. There’s also no shortage of entertainment, with the community centre main stage presenting such choral groups as the South Fraser Community Gospel Choir, the White Rock Christian Academy School Choir, the Friendship Singers, The Crescent United Church choir, the White Rock Singers and the Sound Revival Quartet. At the Elk’s Club, ‘Tis The Season (noon to 3:45 p.m.) is a special

entertainment extravaganza including the White Rock Symphony, the South Fraser Community Band, the Tam O’Shanter Scottish Dancers, Soul of the World Multicultural Choir, the Elks’ House Band and the Crescent Legion Pipe Band. Following the parade will be a Christmas-lighting ceremony at Miramar Village Plaza including Star of the Sea Parish’s Stella Maris Concert Choir and Schola Cantorum, led by Trudy Stammer, and the day’s events will conclude with a Carols By Candlelight singalong at St. John’s Presbyterian Church, including the White Rock Children’s Choir led by Sarona Mynhardt.

Madeline’s Christmas returns to Surrey Arts Centre Dec. 18

Holiday treat back again Alex Browne Arts Reporter

Tickets are on sale again for Madeline’s Christmas, a repeat of last year’s seasonal treat from the Surrey Youth Theatre Company (SYTCO). The heart-warming production, based on the much-loved children’s stories of Ludwig Bemelmans, will run at Surrey Arts Centre on Friday, Dec. 17 and Saturday, Dec. 18 (at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.) and on Sunday, Dec. 19 (2:30 p.m.). But artistic director Susan Pendleton, celebrating the company’s 14th season of productions, warns that tickets should be purchased early, as last year’s presentation sold out. The cast, headed by eight year-old Elizabeth Olsson as plucky Madeline, includes Kallista VanBeest, Jordan Aisenstat, Fiona Firby, Paisley Hoogenraad, Madison Smith, Andrea Moorhouse, Marina Cyr, Cassandra Strain, Madison Quirk, Hayley Miller and Kylie Edwards as her classmates at an exclusive girls’ school in Paris. Kaitie Yott and Stephan Singh, two Grade 12 students from Earl Marriott, play the roles of Miss Clavel, head of the school, and Harsha, a mysterious rug merchant. For the first time in SYTCO’s

Titans rusty in first-round playoff loss Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The football season came to an abrupt end Sunday for the White Rock-South Surrey Titans, after a 35-16 playoff loss to the Mission Niners at snow-covered South Surrey Athletic Park. For the Titans, they had to battle not just the wintery conditions, but rust, too; due to a scheduling quirk, the team hadn’t played a meaningful football game in more than a month. The team had three weeks off, then played its last game of the regular season, against Westside, with mostly backups in the lineup rather than run up the score with its top players on the field. “You don’t want to make excuses, but with four weeks off, the rust showed. We haven’t had a legitimate game in a month, and there’s nothing you can do to replicate a real game,” said Titans head coach John Martins, whose

team also played one intrasquad game to try and stay sharp. “The sharpness just wasn’t there. If we were on our game, I think we would’ve been right there with them.” After a regular season in which they went 8-2, the midget division Titans entered the first round of Vancouver Mainland Football League playoffs as the second seed, while Mission was ranked seventh. The Niners, however, were underdogs in name only; they finished with a strong 6-3-1 record in regular season and were responsible for one of the Titans’ two losses. In Week 1, the Niners edged White Rock 17-14. Mission never trailed in the contest, taking a 7-0 lead in the first quarter with a gadget play – after receiving the handoff from the quarterback, Mission’s running back showed off his arm strength, tossing a bomb to a wide open Branden Edmonson, who scam-

pered into the end zone for a 75-yard score. In the second quarter, Mission went up 14-0 on a 34-yard TD run by Kyle Albertini, but the Titans responded with a nineplay drive that culminated in a one-yard

plunge into the end zone by quarterback Matt Calderwood. Mission extended the lead to 28-7 before halftime with two more surprise plays; the Niners’ had an onside player recover the team’s own punt, which lead to a TD one play later, and Edmonson scored his second of the game on the very same running back toss that netted him his first touchdown. Trailing in the fourth quarter, White Rock’s other scores came when Mission conceded a safety, for two points, and when Willie Watson scored on an eight-yard toss. The weather conditions made it tough for the Titans to get the offence into high gear, but Martins wasn’t using that as an excuse. “The weather certainly didn’t help – it was a real slippery surface out there, but the other guys had to play on it, too,” he said. “Mission just made more plays than we did.”

St. James tagged to lead Rams Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The same day that the Big Kahuna Rams announced they were moving the team to Langley – thus ending a 60-year association with the Surrey community – they also hired a new head coach, Tyson St. James, who happens to be a native of the team’s new city. While St. James, who now resides in Cloverdale, does not come to the team with any previous head coaching experience at the junior football level, his resume is an impressive one. St. James, 35, spent three years in the B.C. Football Conference with the now-defunct Abbotsford Air Force, before moving on to play with the CIS Thunderbirds. The two-time league all-star was also the 1999 outstanding lineman trophy winner. In the 2000 CFL Canadian Draft, the Saskatchewan Roughriders chose St. James first overall. He spent five years in the league with the Riders and Winnipeg Blue Bombers before retiring. He has coached at various levels, most recently as an assistant with Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary. “We had some very qualified coaches apply for the posiAs feature

Treatments such as the oxygen facial are no longer only available for the rich and famous, but are within the range of most of us - although perhaps sometimes reserved for special occasions. If you are not a frequent spa goer, then you have perhaps heard of oxygen facials from the biggest celebrity in the world, Gewnth Paltrow, Justin

Timberlake or Madonna. During Madonna‘s last world tour, she touted the benefits of having frequent oxygen treatments in nearly every interview she gave, even going so far as to travel with her own esthetician so she could partake of an oxygen facial daily. But aside from the celebrity endorsement, what are the esthetic benefits of oxygen? Caree Ludwar, the owner of New Beauty has been doing and getting oxygen facials for over 5 years (maybe this is her secret to looking good?)

What to Expect : There is no downtime or recovery time following this facial rejuvenation treatment. Our patients should expect their facial to last 60 minutes. Your skin will feel moisturized and glow with improved firmness and radiance. If you are looking for more extensive skin rejuvenation, you may wish to book the Laser Genesis with the Oxygen Facial Now that is what we call the RED CARPET treatment. The deep cleansing effect of the facial, followed by the application of pure oxygen will give your skin a major boost and make you look and feel

sports Ian McMaster, Lyndon Duncan set to suit up for Canada next month

Two named to national side Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

A pair of Earl Marriott rugby players will be suiting up for Canada next month – and beyond – after being selected to the country’s national U17 boys side. Both Ian McMaster and Lyndon Duncan were selected for the squad after impressing Team Canada brass at a four-day tryout camp earlier this month in Shawnigan Lake. The duo were two of seven EMS players originally selected to try out at Shawnigan Lake. “I was pretty surprised,” McMaster told Peace Arch News

just two days after being told he’d made the team. “I went into the camp with the expectation that I’d make one of the two teams.” The U17 ‘A’ squad, to which McMaster and Duncan were both selected, leaves Dec. 26 for a California rugby tour, while the ‘B’ team will stay within the province and play a variety of exhibition tilts. “It was a pretty tough camp, and it was actually a lot more physical than I expected,” McMaster said. “I just tried to play the game the way I knew I could. I did all I could out there, but you never know how things are going to go

at these types of camps.” After the California trip wraps up Jan. 2, a third team – combining members from both the ‘A’ and ‘B’ groups – will be put together for a trip to Wellington, England, where they’ll represent Canada in an international rugby festival early in the new year. The cost for both trips is prohibitive, however. Playing on the national team will cost each player about $12,000, Kate McMaster – Ian’s mother – estimates. As such, many players are seeking sponsorship. Anyone interested in helping out can email McMaster at k8mcmaster@telus.net

Figure skaters set for annual holiday gala More than 300 skaters on 20 teams from across British Columbia and Washington will perform at the Pacific Ice Synchronized Skating Club’s annual Christmas Gala Dec. 11 at the South Surrey Arena. The club expects more than 1,000 spectators to attend, watching teams perform their 2011 competitive programs. Admission to the event, which begins at 1:30 p.m., is by donation to the Surrey Food Bank.

“We are very proud to be able to host this annual event which is a wonderful way for the teams to give back to the community by donating to the food bank and generating awareness of synchro,” said Barbara Main, president of the Pacific Ice Synchronized Skating Club. “Last year, we collected an enormous amount of food and supplies and more than $1,700 in cash for the food bank. This year we hope to see those numbers go even higher.”

Curling club seeks volunteers The numbers are good, but the Cloverdale Curling Club is still looking for volunteers with special skills to work at the B.C. Women’s Provincial Championship Jan. 17-23, 2010. “We have 47 volunteers, not counting 23-25 on the host committee,” said volunteer co-ordinator Betsy Terpsma. “So we are looking good for general recruitment.” But the club still needs volunteers in first aid and bartending, with a minimum commitment of working two shifts, each shift lasting four to six hours. Drivers are also needed, and to commit to transporting a team during the week of competition. Assistance from Level 1 and Level 2 curling officials would also be welcomed, to assist as on-ice observers, timers and hog-line officials.

“All volunteers will have access to the volunteer lounge during their shift, as well as a wind-up party and prizes,” said Terpsma. “We hope to provide T-shirts at no cost to all our volunteers.” Anyone interested can visit the website at www.bcscotties.ca and fill out an online form. Forms can also be printed and dropped off at the Cloverdale Curling Club (6150 176 St.). Tournament organizers are expecting 200-300 spectators a day at the Cloverdale club, watching 10 teams compete for the B.C. berth at the Scott Tournament of Hearts in Prince Edward Island. Draws are tentatively scheduled for noon and 7 p.m. each day during the round robin. Four teams will advance to a playoff round Jan. 21-23.

A pair of South Surrey schools brought an end to some pretty significant slumps on the volleyball court last weekend, as both the White Rock Christian Academy Warriors and Southridge Storm qualified for senior girls single-A B.C. championships. In order to advance, WRCA won the Fraser Valley tournament, which gave the team its first Fraser Valley banner in six years, while the Storm won the wildcard qualifier round to earn the first provincial berth in school history. “It was a proud moment,” said WRCA coach Kelli Niemi, of her team’s Fraser Valley win. “Seven of our 12 team members are Grade 12s, so this was a particularly great accomplishment for them, in their final year.” WRCA and Southridge actually met in semifinals, which were staged at White Rock Christian, with the Warriors edging their crosstown rivals. From there, White Rock advanced to finals, where they defeated Credo Christian in four sets, bouncing back from a first-set loss that Neimi called “a near disaster.” “Thankfully, we picked up our game and

gained momentum,” she added. After the loss to WRCA, Southridge was sent to the bronzemedal game, which they also lost to Chilliwack’s Highroad Academy. The loss relegated the Storm to the wildcard round, where they managed to snag the last spot at provincials by beating Duncan Christian and Richmond Christian; both teams were ranked second in their respective leagues during the regular season. WRCA’s Carly Barker was named MVP while captain, Jolayne Whitmarsh was named to the tournament allstar team. Single-A provincials run Dec. 2-4 at Abbotsford Christian. Southridge and White Rock aren’t the only South Surrey senior girls teams that will be seeking a title next week. At the AAAA level, the Earl Marriott Mariners are heading to B.C. championships in Nanaimo, after a second-place finish last weekend at the Fraser Valley tournament, which was held at Langley’s Walnut Grove Secondary. The Mariners lost to the defending Fraser Valley champion Riverside Rapids in the finals, despite leading by at least six points in all three sets.

Wind farm powers up Tom Fletcher Black Press

B.C.’s second wind farm is up and running. With 48 towers, Dokie Wind Farm near Chetwynd is larger than the 34-tower Bear Mountain Wind near Dawson Creek, which started feeding the BC Hydro grid in October 2009. Dokie is fully constructed and nine of its towers have begun producing power, Plutonic Power CEO Donald McInnes said in an interview Tuesday. Testing and electrical commissioning is underway on the rest. “Our online due date to be selling electricity under our power agreement with BC Hydro is the end of March, and I think we’re on track to better that deadline,” McInnes said. Dokie was developed by a startup company called EarthFirst Canada Inc., which signed a power purchase contract with BC Hydro in 2006. After spending $110 million on the project, EarthFirst went bankrupt in late 2008, and Plutonic and General Electric purchased it in June 2009. Plutonic and GE also have a provincial environmental permit for a much larger project on nearby Wartenbe Mountain. The permit allows for up to 200 towers on nine ridges, to further develop the area identified in a 2004 survey as B.C.’s best land-based wind energy site. McInnes said a feasibility study is underway on the Wartenbe Mountain terrain, and once a practical size is determined, the next step is seeking a powerpurchase contract with BC Hydro. Dokie has cost the new owners $228 million. It will generate 340 gigawatt hours per year, enough to supply the equivalent of 34,000 homes. Plutonic is best known as a major player in run-of-river power development, with the 196-megawatt East Toba River Montrose Creek project north of Powell River. Plutonic and GE are partners on that project, a proposed 166-megawatt second

extends to 17 rivers, and could generate more power on an annual basis than the proposed Site C dam on the Peace River. “We still think it’s a fantastic resource and we’re very keen on advancing it, and we’re still advancing our discussions with the Homalco First Nation in good faith, because we think at some point there will be an opportunity to develop the project,” McInnes said.

First GVHBA U40 mentorship event a success The Greater Vancouver Homebuilders’ Association U40 Committee held its first in an ongoing series of mentorship breakfasts recently, with Portrait Homes co-principal and GVHBA director Rob Grimm as the mentor. Earlier this year, the GVHBA conducted a survey of its younger members and found it can be difficult to

actually meet and speak with industry leaders at large events, and the idea of mentorship breakfasts started to grow. There was such strong interest in the event, says GVHBA U40 chairman Yosh Kasahara, that a lottery system was used to select the lucky 12 U40 attendees. “The U40s who attended agreed that it was an incredibly valuable experience to be able to hear from Rob in this unique format,” Kasahara says. “The GVHBA U40 Committee would like to sincerely thank Rob Grimm for sharing his knowledge and experience with this group of up-andcoming GVHBA members.”

Home sales trend higher Forecasts bode well for B.C. residential sales in 2011 TRICIA LESLIE Favourable mortgage rates, strong migration flows and job growth will keep home sales stable in the Metro Vancouver area until mid-2011, says a recent Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation report. Later in 2011, when improvements in the economy and job market gain more traction, sales are forecast to trend higher, the national agency reports. “Balanced market conditions that have been established in recent months will continue over the next nine to 12 months,” says CMHC senior market analyst Robyn Adamache. Fewer new listings coming Robyn Adamache onto the market due to modest price growth and a steady pace of sales will continue to gradually draw down the inventory of resale homes for sale, the CMHC forecast says. The same holds true across the province, says CMHC regional economist Carol Frketich. “Builders are expected to begin construction on more new homes next year in response to steady housing demand,” she says. CMHC is forecasting just under 26,000 total starts in B.C. for 2011, slightly below the province’s 10-year average. A recent B.C. Real Estate Cameron Muir Association forecast also points to increasing home sales in the region in 2011. The BCREA’s fall housing forecast calls for home sales to decline by 12 per cent from 85,028 units in 2009 to 74,950 units this year, before increasing by six per cent to 79,700 units in 2011. “Consumers are responding to a double-dip in mortgage interest rates,” says BCREA chief

Home sales have been steady at Surrey’s Quattro condo development and continual at Langley’s High Point Equestrian Estates, with more sales expected and more homebuilding scheduled in the immediate future.

economist Cameron Muir. “While housing demand waned in the province through the spring and summer, the additional purchasing power from low borrowing costs combined with gradual improvements in the B.C. economy has trended home sales higher in recent months.” A “moderate increase” in B.C.’s home sales is expected next year, but Muir notes the expected 79,700 residential sales forecast for 2011 are “well below” the 10-year average of 85,000 units. A record 106,300 residential sales were recorded in 2005. While home sales in the province were down in October compared to the same month last year, they increased by two per cent compared to September 2010, says the BCREA. The average MLS residential price climbed six per cent to $521,859 in October compared

THE PERFECT PLACE FOR NEW BEGINNINGS!

to October 2009. “B.C. home sales have posted moderate gains since the summer months,” Muir says, again pointing to mortgage rates and the associated increase in purchasing power. Indeed, at Quattro, a new Tien Sher Group of Companies development in Surrey, director Charan Sethi says it’s amazing how much interest there has been in the new condo homes. “We’ve had steady sales. It’s coming along nicely,” he says. Ditto at Cressey’s High Point Equestrian Estates in Langley, where sales and building have been “continual” and the massive equestrian amenities centre is under construction. Many new estate homes are built or underway, with 10 more homes expected to start construction, says Cressey development manager Jason Turcotte.

Local home prices not high on global scale It is no secret that Canada's home prices – especially in Metro Vancouver – are overvalued. But local homeowners may be surprised to learn that it could be worse. A lot worse, according to a new international survey. The Economist recently published its annual survey of global house prices, which shows that Canadian homes cost an average of 23.9 per cent more than they are worth. Compared to Australia, however, where homes are 63.2 per cent overvalued, Canada is somewhere near the middle of the worldwide pack. In Hong Kong, homes are 58.1 per cent overvalued, while Spain, France and Sweden posted overvalue percentages in the 40s. At the other end of the scale, the Economist reports that homes in Japan are 34.6 per cent undervalued; in Germany, homes are 12.9 per cent undervalued. The Economist notes that last year at this time, the survey was “a sea of negative numbers.” A year ago, 15 out of the 20 countries on the list were in negative territory. “That was then. Of the 20 markets tracked in our latest survey, only four still posted year-on-year declines and only Ireland’s property catastrophe has worsened,” states an Economist release. According to the survey, Canada’s home prices were up 4.5 per cent from one year ago. Between 1997 and 2010, prices rose by an astonishing 70 per cent, the report said. The Economist’s analysis of fair value in housing is based on comparing the current ratio of house prices to rents with its longrun average. That analysis suggests that Canada “has less to worry about than the likes of Australia, which is again the most overvalued of the markets we track,” the release says. “That makes it all the more surprising that Australia’s central bank opted not to increase its benchmark interest rate this month.”
