Ex-Delta bureaucrat banned from being near children, using Internet

White Rock man faces 1973 sex charge Dan Ferguson Black Press

Kip Gaudry, a White Rock resident and former Delta municipal director of engineering, was arrested earlier this month on a charge of indecent assault on a female in connection with a 1973 incident in Winnipeg. A statement issued on behalf of the Winnipeg Police Service (WPS) Sex

Crimes Unit Wednesday said the case concerns “a historical sexual assault involving a child.” Court records show the 59-year-old Gaudry, who recently moved to a home a block north of Semiahmoo Park, was taken into custody on a Canada-wide warrant by the Delta Police Department on Sept. 14 and ordered held in custody by a Surrey Provincial Court judge until

a WPS detective came to escort Gaudry back to Manitoba on Sept. 16. Gaudry was granted release on $3,000 bail and allowed to return to his B.C. home after he appeared before a Winnipeg judge on Sept. 21. He paid $2,500 in cash, the court record shows. Judge Wanda Garreck imposed several conditions, including an order that forbids Gaudry from contacting the

alleged victim. He is also banned from being in any area where children under the age of 14 might be, like swimming pools, school grounds, daycare centres or playgrounds. He is never to be in the company of someone under 14 without another adult present. Gaudry can’t own “any device capable of storing, receiving or transmitting � see page 8

Longboard injures 90-year-old

‘Be careful out there’ Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A White Rock senior is speaking out about the dangers of longboards on the city’s streets and sidewalks, after she was struck by a stray board Tuesday afternoon. Pat Lorange, 90, said she was hit around 3:30 p.m. Sept. 28 as she crossed Thrift Avenue at Foster Street. “It hit me on the heel and knocked me down. I’ve got a completely broken left wrist and I’ve got a cast right up to my elbow,” Lorange said. While Lorange is quick to praise the boarder for sticking around to make sure she was OK, she is worried about the impact a similar incident could have on the city’s less healthy seniors. � see page 4

‘Rare’ district lawsuit involves two students last year at Peace Arch Elementary

Student, parents, staff sued over schoolyard injury Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A 13-year-old White Rock girl is suing a fellow student in connection with injuries allegedly suffered last year on Peace Arch Elementary grounds. The lawsuit, filed last week in B.C. Supreme Court, also names the student’s parents/guardians, school administrators, a supervisory aide and the Surrey School District. Citing privacy and legal issues,

district spokesman Doug Strachan confirmed the district is aware of the civil claim, but would not comment on specifics. He did say such claims are not a regular occurrence for the district. It’s the only one he can recall from his seven years with the district. “It’s rare,” Strachan said. According to the court documents, the girl is claiming for general damages, special damages, in-trust damages and more, for

injuries including traumatic brain injury, headaches, fatigue, memory impairment, slurred speech, numbness to face and noise sensitivity. “On or about Oct. 14, 2009, the plaintiff was tackled, tripped or knocked down by the defendant… and fell to the ground, striking her head and suffering serious injuries,” the claim states, noting the girl continues to receive medical care and rehabilitation for her injuries. According to the documents, the

defendants caused or contributed to the incident through negligence. The student himself was negligent for engaging in rough play, “when he knew or should have known the activity could cause injury to the plaintiff,” the claim states. He was also negligent in “failing to warn the plaintiff that he was attempting to trip or tackle her or knock her down,” the documents state. Allegations against school staff include a failure to take reasonable

care to ensure the plaintiff would be safe and a failure to investigate previous complaints regarding rough play and supervision. Vancouver lawyer Laura Bakan has been appointed counsel for the district. Calls to Bakan, as well as Susan Denness – identified in the claim as the girl’s “litigation guardian”– were not returned by Peace Arch News deadline Thursday. Statements of defence have not yet been filed.

Rowing club fears water-skiing accident on river

Police crack down on Nicomekl skiers Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

The death of a Washington man who was struck by a ski boat while rowing on Lake Stevens has Peninsula rowing enthusiasts asking police to enforce regulations that prohibit waterskiing on the Nicomekl River. “A number of our members got pretty concerned,” Malcolm Fletcher, president of the Nicomekl Rowing Club, said of reaction to the Aug. 19 tragedy. It’s only a matter of time before something similar happens here, he said. Waterskiers are a regular sight on the popular South Surrey waterway in the summer, and have been for years, Fletcher said. And while the majority share the river well, it is the few who do not that are a concern. “Occasionally, you get a maverick who

decides they want to use the rowing shells as a slalom course,” Fletcher said. “It’s a recipe for potential risk.” Under the Canada Shipping Act, the river is a no-tow zone between the trestle bridge

and the control dam – the same stretch that’s used regularly by rowers, canoeists and kayakers, Fletcher said. It also has a 16 km/h speed limit. Fletcher believes if more people knew of the regulations, most would choose to obey them. Rowing club members decided to take their concerns to South Surrey RCMP shortly after the crash that killed 41-year-old Dave Balbirona. Balbirona was practising in a doubles shell on Lake Stevens when, according to reports, a ski boat captained by a 17-year-old struck the craft. Impact tossed Balbirona and his rowing partner, a 50-year-old woman, into the lake. While the woman resurfaced, Balbirona, a father of four, did not. Reaction to a police patrol on the Nicomekl

in mid-September confirmed education needs to be part of addressing the issue here, said Const. Teresa Foster. Foster, with the Mounties’ Neighbourhood Liaison Unit, said the majority of boaters approached that afternoon weren’t aware waterskiing – along with the towing of any other pleasure craft on the river – is illegal. To address that, efforts are underway to improve signage detailing the regulations. As well, Foster is working to co-ordinate regular on-water enforcement for next summer, when the activity is anticipated to pick up again. And while violation tickets will be part of the enforcement, safety for all who use the waterway is key, Foster said. “It would be tragic if there was actually an accident in our area.”

Home costs include 17% levies in Surrey

‘Through the roof’ Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Surrey has Canada’s second-highest government imposed charges (GICs) on new homes, as municipal, provincial and federal fees make up almost $87,000 of the price of a single-family detached house valued at $500,000. It amounts to 17.3 per cent of the cost of purchasing a home – the second highest percentage in the country. (Vaughn, Ont. is 17.9 per cent). Toronto – the only Canadian city with higher GICs than Surrey – has $101,526 added to the construction and purchase of a new home valued at $755,000. Yellowknife faced the lowest charges for new homes at $14,510. The figures come from a 2009 national review prepared by the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC).

No to four-year terms WHISTLER – Municipal election terms will remain at three years, delegates to the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention decided in a hotly contested vote Thursday. The executive of the UBCM had endorsed the idea after a provincialmunicipal task force recommended it this spring. Supporters noted most Canadian provinces have already

gone to four-year terms, and it may improve turnout at local elections. Other councillors argued that with the low pay, a four-year term would prevent many candidates from making the commitment.

Boarders ‘terribly upset’ � from page 1 “There’s so many old people here that are in a much more frail state than I am, and I’m 90. It could’ve been fatal for somebody.” Lorange was on her way home and in a marked crosswalk at the time of the collision. She remembers getting hit on the heel, her shoes flying off and falling to the ground. Lorange said the boy whose longboard hit her told her he lost his balance – and his board shot out – when the board hit a stone. The distraught boy and his friend stayed at the scene and visited Lorange at Peace Arch Hospital – points, Lorange said, speak to their character. “They were really terribly upset about it,” she said. “They were well brought-up boys and they were horrified by this.” However, White Rock, with its large senior population, is no place for the activity, Lorange said. “The sidewalks are filled with people that should never have a thing like

this hit them. “I’m sure the people in the cars (witnesses) must have been horrified to see a white-haired woman knocked off her feet like this.” The incident comes less than three months after White Rock RCMP announced they would be cracking down on longboarders by enforcing a city bylaw that prohibits such activity on open public areas in the town centre. The move – which sparked a protest by local longboard enthusiasts who rallied outside city hall – was in response to safety concerns and citizen complaints, Sgt. Paul Fletcher said at the time. He cited the death of North Vancouver longboarder Glenna Evans as evidence of the sport’s risk. Staff Sgt. Lesli Roseberry said Wednesday that while police haven’t issued tickets to longboarders, officers have made a point of speaking to those they’ve seen “with a view to sort of educate them… with regard to issues of public safety and their own safety.” Police were not called to Tuesday’s incident.

Unnatural predators

E

very species of animal at different times of its life is both predator and prey. The majority of the time, such is the normal cycle of life: survival of the fittest, and all. But there is something definitively wrong when an animal becomes prey to a predator that it instinctively never realized it should fear. Such is the situation in White Rock, where reports house cats are being mutilated – cut in half – have come to light. As a result, police have recommended twice in recent days that residents keep their family pets – cats, in particular – indoors. It is sound advice. At least one of the three reported kills, in which the cat was found sliced cleanly in half, was unquestionably intentional, Staff Sgt. Lesli Roseberry told Peace Arch News this week. The odds the two other reported accounts were accidents appear slim: one was found “broken in half”; only half of a second cat was located. According to the RCMP’s behavioural-sciences team, such actions are a red flag for lack of empathy and most definitely constitute antisocial behaviour. Operational psychologist Teal Maedel also named misplaced anger and revenge as common factors in such killings. It begs the question: if a person is willing and able to so callously kill a virtually defenseless animal, what else are they capable of? If the first report had been a one-off, reaction would still be strong; disgust at the minimum. However, that there have apparently been others certainly warrants increased concern. In short, it is horrifying. Sadly, White Rock’s reports are far from unique. In recent months, police in both Langley and Kelowna have had incidents of targeted attacks on cats. As of late August, Edmonton police were investigating eight cat deaths; at least two of the animals were found cut in half. And it seems unlikely a hungry coyote would leave half its lunch behind. It’s difficult to imagine what any cat could possibly do – poop in the garden? leave a dead mouse on the doorstep? – to drive someone to believe mutilating them is warranted. Such sickening behaviour can hardly be called normal. But it is up to everyone – those who own pets and those who don’t – to help put a stop to it. Report suspicious activity to police. Report mutilated animal finds so the problem can be properly tracked. And keep pets indoors or, at least, in sight. While many domesticated animals are intelligent, agile creatures by nature, when the predator out to get them is a human, they stand little chance of survival.

Back in White Rock, Ferguson made her point that safety’s non-negotiable, but that it would be unfair of the longboarders if they prejudged council’s reaction to such a delegation. And she’s right. But I fear the mayor missed a prime opportunity to give the boarders exactly what was requested – a straight answer. I suspect that straight answer would have been that she will not support the boarders in their quest. Sadly for all concerned, the straightest of answers from her or any elected official in this or any other city would/ should have been: it’s unlikely these bylaws will ever be changed, as they protect individuals from harm, and the city from litigation. Certainly, the longboarders wouldn’t have been happy. But their pain would have been swift and short-lived, like removing a Band-Aid, rather than allowing them to build hope. And just perhaps, the boarders themselves could have been convinced to stay a little longer at city hall and fight for a voice at the civic level, perhaps on one of their committees or helping with parks and rec. One never knows. Maybe one or two of the longboarders will learn a thing or two about politics throughout this exercise, and maybe we’ve all just witnessed a new breed of politician in the making. As long as they can keep their hope alive… Lance Peverley is editor of the Peace Arch News.

City has much bigger problem Editor: Re: $4/hour parking perused; More changes in store…, Sept. 15, 22. How ridiculous. Whenever I see this same old horse being flogged, I can’t help but voice my same old whine – why can’t the City of White Rock concentrate on getting more businesses in to carry the tax burden? Why are businesses leaving White Rock? Why are they not encouraged to stay? I said this before when I saw our only liquor store leave, as well as our local newspaper, and soon to follow are others like Shoppers Drug Mart. These are viable businesses that occupy choice locations and pay large rent to be there. Yes, these businesses are still close by, but we are not getting the revenue if they are in South Surrey. Please correct me if I am wrong. Is there some sort of treaty? Why don’t we have a Starbucks in White Rock, why not a Cobs Bread, why not a modern supermarket, how about a London Drugs? And the list goes on. Yes, they are close by. But they are not in White Rock and therefore not contributing to our taxes. If we are the City of White Rock, shouldn’t we have these cornerstone, revenue-producing businesses? It’s great to have a Sunday market, but in the end, does it render much profit to the city? It all comes down to the bottom line. We need more businesses here to survive as a city. You can’t put all the onus on the beach. Doriana Barros, White Rock

Cats have long been targeted Editor: Re: Pet warning issued after cat mutilated, Sept. 24. When I read about the White Rock feline – someone’s beloved pet – that was cut in half, perhaps after first being tortured, I was, sadly, not really surprised. Cats, usually friendly pets allowed outdoors, have been a favourite target for severe abuse and slaughter for many years. I’m sure that when people read about how some cats prey upon other cute mammals, like small birds, many people feel justified in their actually-unwarranted contempt for all felines. Also, the unrealistic Hollywood-cliché images of cats jumping off of tall shelves and onto a terrified person’s head, leaving behind viciously torn skin and soul-chilling cat screams and hisses, probably only exacerbates such contempt for cats. With the exception of a portion of Before-Christ-era Egypt – a time of Pharaohs who worshipped cats like gods – cats have been one of the most persecuted animal race

readily available to man’s cruel and prejudicial hand. I believe that many people’s contempt for cats has much to do with cats’ typically independent nature: they, generally speaking, do not readily obey man’s command, as do most domesticated canines, “man’s best friend.” In a nutshell, as long as people torture cats – and other fellow Earthly animals – I’ll be ashamed to be a member of the too-ofteninhumane human race. Frank G. Sterle, Jr., White Rock

Who benefits from the bags? Editor: Re: Artificial excuse costs business, Sept. 24 letters. Short and simple, it’s not an artificial excuse to charge for plastic bags to save the environment. Businesses are charging you for something you don’t really need,

but want. The thought behind the policy is that if they charge for the bags – something people already have at home – then maybe people will reuse their plastic bags or go cloth. Eco-conscious people reuse their plastic bags or use cloth because it’s the right thing to do, so maybe you should be doing the right thing and think about the earth instead of your wallet. The act of charging for bags is not to make an extra penny or two, it’s to discourage people from using plastic bags. Simple. Kristen Lee, White Rock ■ Some local stores are charging customers for plastic bags. Is that to save the environment? Reduce costs? Or just to increase their profits? While I don’t mind paying for a shopping bag to save the environment, I resent paying the company for doing their advertising. If they insist I pay, they need to remove their logo from the bags. On the other hand, perhaps they

would like to pay me for advertising for them? What would be a reasonable fee? I do not buy the argument that charging for bags is a cost-reducing strategy. Instead, I believe, it alienates customers. There is a belief that plastic bags are non-biodegradable and pose a problem to the environment. This is a myth easily tested by picking up a two-year-old bag and have it disintegrate in your hands leaving a pile of white ash. It is merely a ploy from garbage-bag makers to get consumers to buy their product. I will mark my objections to paying for grocery bags with logos by doing three things: 1. Check out the competition. 2. Use the competition’s bags with their logos when carrying products from stores that charge for bags. 3. Begin a letter-writing campaign of protest. I encourage other shoppers to do the same. Always request a written response. Karen Shaw, White Rock

Letter-writer Barb Smith with her family ‘heirloom,’ which she had initially planned to donate to a seniors home.

Sage advice revives old passion Editor: I dropped by Sunnyside Manor this week to see if they needed an organ donated for their music room. It was an old wooden organ that had been in my family for over 30 years. I’d taken lessons on it when I was young and was the only sibling in our family with any musical ability growing up. When my father bought a fancy new one, he gave me the old family organ. As time passed, I noticed fewer and fewer times when I would raise the cover and sit down to play. I spoke to my father and asked if it would be alright to donate the organ to a seniors home, so maybe someone there would get some enjoyment from it. I stopped by Sunnyside Manor, a local retirement residence here in South Surrey. I had a chat with the manager about contributing my “heirloom.” She said they already had and organ, and that most of the retirement homes do as well. While we were chatting, I noticed open garden doors to a pretty garden in the distance. I asked the manager if I could take a peek outside. That’s when I met a resident there, 90 years young, sitting alone on a two-person glider, rocking back and forth enjoying the beautiful afternoon. We exchanged courtesies, commented on the weather and such, and rocked back and forth on her glider. Then she asked if I’d come to visit someone at the home.

I explained my situation with the organ, and she thought awhile and then said: “Don’t give your wonderful family heirloom to a place like this. Instead, find some young person who loves music, lives for it and can’t afford one for himself.” “Better yet,” she added, “keep it for yourself.” I replied I thought it was a shame as I only play it at Christmas, and it seems like such a waste when someone else could be enjoying it every day. She smiled and said, “But how do you feel when you’re playing it?” It makes me happy, I replied. She leaned forward and offered some wonderful wisdom. She said that if we can find one thing that makes us happy, we should hold onto it forever. As I sat there, tears filled my eyes, I remembered back to my younger days when I would come home from school. My mother, now long passed away, used to say, “Play me something pretty, Barbie”, and I would play some of her “old” music – you know, church music, ballads, Frank Sinatra, that sort of thing. She would sing along in the kitchen while she prepared our dinner, and shout out comments like, “That was beautiful honey.” I miss my mother. So… I’m keeping my heirloom. Thanks to my new friend at Sunnyside (who asked to remain nameless). May God bless you and keep you safe. Barb Smith, Surrey

Delta leaders learned of Gaudry’s record after he was hired � from page 1 photographic material or movies,� and he is not allowed to use the Internet. The alleged offence occurred between June 1 and Aug. 31, 1973. Gaudry’s next court appearance in Winnipeg is set for Dec. 14. 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. He was charged with one count of possession of child pornography and one count of accessing child pornography. His trial on those charges has yet to begin. Gaudry was allowed to go free on the Delta case on $10,000 bail

and conditions of release that ban him from being in the presence of under-14 children without another adult present. Gaudry, a convicted sex offender, was hired by the municipality in 2001. At the time, applicants for employment with the municipality were required to disclose whether they had a criminal record, but they didn’t have to be more specific than checking yes or no on a form that asked “have you ever been convicted of a criminal offence for which a pardon has not been granted?� The municipality later learned Gaudry had been jailed on multiple counts of sexual assault six years earlier, but he was allowed to keep his job. Under his full legal name of Cleo

Faus Gaudry, he pleaded guilty in August 1995 to nine counts of sexual assault and was sentenced to 3½ years by a Prince George Provincial Court judge. The crimes were committed while Gaudry was working as an administrator of the District of Houston, a small community of 4,000 in northwest B.C. At the time, a Houston newspaper quoted a senior RCMP officer as saying some of the charges involved young people. Some details of the case cannot be reported under a court-ordered ban, still in effect, on publication of any information that could identify a victim. “I paid my debt to society,â€? Gaudry told the newspaper. When Black Press spoke to Delta

Mayor Lois Jackson in 2003, she expressed surprise at the details of Gaudry’s criminal record but declined to comment further. The next year, the rules governing disclosure of past criminal records by prospective Delta civic employees were tightened to require would-be civic workers to reveal whether they have a criminal record that “may be relevant to the person’s employment.� After he was hired, Gaudry rose quickly through the ranks at Delta city hall to head the planning and development department. After Gaudry resigned, Delta’s chief administrative officer told Black Press he did not learn the nature of Gaudry’s criminal past until he received an anonymous

tip via email, and that Delta Police investigated and confirmed Gaudry had a record of sex offences. The matter was discussed during two closed-door Delta council meetings in April 2004. Notes from the sessions show the first meeting involved a letter from a law firm telling council it would be illegal to fire an employee for a past criminal record. At the second meeting, Gaudry was appointed director of community planning and development with a condition that he could not substitute for the CAO under any circumstances. Gaudry had applied to get a pardon for his 1995 sexual assault conviction before he became director of Delta’s municipal engineering department.

An ATM machine was damaged during a break-in at South Surrey Arena.

Police are investigating a weekend break-in at South Surrey Arena. Const. Peter Neily said officers were called to the 2199 148 St. facility Sunday evening. They noted damage to a window and “extensive damage” to an on-site cash machine. “Somebody compromised the ATM once they were inside,” Neily said, adding it is unclear if any money was actually taken. The break-in occurred between midnight and 6 a.m. Sept. 26. Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or with information that could help police identify those responsible is asked to call the Surrey detachment at 604-599-0502. - Tracy Holmes

Many new residents at risk of homelessness, starvation

Rough start for refugees Kevin Diakiw Black Press

For almost half his life, he had been living in a refugee camp in Somalia. This year, humanitarian workers found 35-year-old Abdelkadir Ali Amin and alerted the United Nations of his plight. The United Nations Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees, of which Canada is a signed member, defines who is a refugee and decides whether individuals must leave their circumstances for their own safety. Like all government-assisted refugees, Amin was referred to a Canadian Visa agent abroad, where he was screened. Before he could leave, he had to sign a $5,000 loan agreement to pay for his trip to this country, as well as cover the cost of a medical exam when he arrived. Now Amin lives in a Newton basement suite, existing on a refugee support income of $720 a month. Of that, $500 goes to rent, and another $81 goes to a bus pass to get him to school and back so he can learn English. Amin one day hopes to resume his trade as carpenter. The remaining $100 or so goes toward food and other essentials. He says he’s been here “a few months” which means he’ll receive request for payment on his federal loan in about three months. Amin’s payments will be close to $100. Defaults on payments go to a collection agency, however, many refugees mistakenly believe their Canadian citizenship hangs in the balance. Canada is the only country in the world to charge interest on those loans. The U.S. provides interestfree loans, and many European countries favour the grant process. Surrey Coun. Judy Villeneuve described charging interest on the loans as a national embarrassment, and she believes the country should simply grant the refugees the funds, rather than force them into dire financial straits. The nation agrees, as Villeneuve received support for that

Somali refugee Abdelkadir Ali Amin lives in a Newton basement suite on just $720 a month. initiative from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) last month. Amin is here alone, but a recent study of refugees in Surrey showed many or most are underfeeding their families in order to pay back the loans, which are anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000. Some want to get the money paid back quickly, believing that if they don’t, they’ll be sent back to a refugee camp. So, young families often go hungry to cover the loans. Villeneuve said Amin’s story is not uncommon, as many refugees are at risk of homelessness, send their kids to work

instead of school, and remain at the brink of starvation. In Surrey, the problem is particularly prevalent, as the city draws the most global refugees of any city in the province. Out of the 885 government-assisted refugees that came to B.C. last year, 360, or 41 per cent, made Surrey their home. Affordable housing is cited as the reason. “It puts significant pressure on the local neighbourhoods, the schools, health care, libraries, other community agencies,” according Chris Friesen, director of settlement services for the Immigrant Services Society of B.C.

Almost half (41 per cent) of the refugees coming here are age 18 and under, meaning the impact on schools is significant. Most don’t speak English. Compounding that problem is many kids are malnourished, as their food money goes toward the federal loan. “Over 90 per cent of the refugees that get these loans repay them. The issue is, at what cost?” Friesen said. He notes most refugees don’t know what they’re signing when they come here, so they believe their stay is contingent on a speedy repayment. “If you’ve been in a camp for 10 to 20 years, you’re going to sign anything to get out of it,” Friesen said. Friesen said the City of Surrey’s motion to change federal loans into grants ensures we are not penalizing people who were invited here and went through extreme hardship prior to arriving. Villeneuve said she’s pleased the motion at the FCM passed, and she will now begin lobbying local Members of Parliament to act on it.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Earl Marriott Secondary grad grateful for hometown support

Dancer hopes TV performance inspires Melissa Smalley

A

Staff Reporter

fter being named to the bottom three couples in last week’s elimination episode of So You Think You Can Dance Canada, South Surrey’s Nathalie Heath managed to find a silver lining. Heath and new dance partner Jonathan Arsenault were on the verge of being cut in last Thursday’s show, but were spared elimination after “dancing for their lives.” “It was the first time I got to show Canada what I do personally, so that was nice,” Heath, 23, told Peace Arch News in a telephone interview after the performance. “It could have been the last time I danced on that stage, so I wanted it to be memorable and to feel good.” Heath moved ahead to the top 12 and took to the stage this week with another new partner, Sebastian Mersch, to perform a disco routine described as “fresh and funky” by one of the show’s judges. (Results from Thursday night’s show weren’t available by Peace Arch News deadline.) Although she’s repeatedly been named a top-10 contender by the show’s judges, the Earl Marriott Secondary grad was thrown a bit of a curveball early last week, when the dance partners were unexpectedly swapped, something Heath said likely contributed to her and Arsenault placing in the bottom three. “The partner switch that we had last week was a challenge, because I

was getting so comfortable dancing with Mackenzie (Green),” she said. “On a partnership level, it’s so hard to build a connection in just four days. But we did our best, and getting in the bottom three wasn’t totally harsh.” What is harsh, however, is the busy schedule remaining dancers are subjected to. “It’s definitely grueling, it’s nonstop dancing. And I have a sprained ankle, which is making it a bit tougher,” Heath said. Heath said most mornings are spent working with choreographers, followed by hours of intense practising “at home” – a Toronto apartment complex currently housing the competitors. When the dancers hit the nearby studio where the show is filmed, they spend all day practising both on and off stage. And on performance days, amongst the hair, makeup, wardrobe and even more dancing, Heath said the group

is kept busy doing media interviews. The intense regime leaves little time for sightseeing or relaxation. “It’s really jam packed – my parents just came to visit and I barely got to see them at all.” Though she’s thousands of kilometres away from friends and family, Heath said the huge showing of support from the Peninsula – including special viewing nights held the past several weeks at Ocean Park Pub – has given her a large boost. “I absolutely love it. I wish I was there to see it,” she said of the hometown support. “It’s really heartwarming to see friends and acquaintances coming out to watch something they normally wouldn’t watch.” Regardless of how far she ends up making it in the competition, Heath said the experience has been “awesome” and that she hopes to influence other young dance talent to tryout for future seasons of the show. “I’d love to inspire young dancers in Canada. I think a lot of people get down on themselves because it’s tough to be a dancer in Canada, but I want all the young dancers to keep dancing,” she said. “To be able to work with such talented dancers and choreographers is unbelievable.” So You Think You Can Dance Canada performance episodes air Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on CTV, followed by the results shows on Thursdays at 8:30 p.m.

More trees in White Rock Dozens of new trees will be taking root in White Rock this fall – starting with 30 Saturday along Roper Avenue. The trees, including Pin oaks and globe maples, will be planted Oct. 2 between Best and Finlay streets by members of a local Scouts group and the First United Church, as part of the provincial Trees for Tomorrow initiative. Trees for Tomorrow is part of a strategy aimed at helping reduce greenhouse gases by at least 33 per cent below current levels by 2020, by supporting the planting of trees in public spaces through-

out the province. Last year, White Rock received a $28,350 grant through the initiative. Some of the funds helped plant 30 trees along Roper; the remainder will cover plantings this fall. “The City of White Rock is taking a proactive approach towards climate change by planting trees throughout the community,” Coun. Helen Fathers, the city’s environment committee liaison, said in a statement. “Trees store and sequester carbon, reduce energy consumption and the consumption of

fossil fuels, helping our community adapt to climate change impacts.” A second planting event is set for Oct. 23, for the northwest corner of Centennial Park. That day, First United members and students from a Grade 1 Peace Arch Elementary class will pitch in to add Maidenhair, dogwood and columnar purple beech to the landscape. In all, 78 trees are to be planted this fall. Both of this month’s events get underway at 10 a.m. To volunteer, call 604-541-2192.

Tough new penalties enforced by Surrey and Delta police

Quick justice for impaired drivers Dan Ferguson Black Press

The driver, a young man in his 20s, claimed his last drink was consumed the night before he arrived at the Surrey RCMP roadblock at the on-ramp to the Golden Ears Bridge. But the officer who spoke to him last Friday night had his doubts. He put the driver to the test using a portable breath alcohol device. “Blow,” the Mountie said. “Keep going,” he told the driver, over and over. But the man wasn’t trying very hard. “Okay, that was not a useable sample,” the Mountie said. “That was a pretend sample.” Under Canadian law, failing to provide a useable breath sample is the same as a refusal. The RCMP officer gave the driver another chance. This time, he did it properly. A high-pitched tone announced a “fail” reading. “Eleven milligrams of alcohol,” the officer said. “You’ve had a drink more recently than yesterday.” Under the province’s new drinkingand-driving penalties that took effect Sept. 20, the driver could instantly lose his licence for 90 days and his car could be impounded for 30 days. That’s under the Immediate Roadside Prohibition program or IRP. Before the IRP, officers could impose 24-hour roadside suspensions on drivers, but the length of the

suspension did not increase on second and third suspensions. Officers could also impose 90-day driving bans, but the suspension would not take effect for 21 days to give drivers time to mount a legal challenge. Now, under the IRP, a first-time driving suspension is for three days with the vehicle impounded for the same period. A second suspension and impoundment is for seven days. A third is for 30. And when a 90-day driving ban is imposed under the IRP it takes effect on the spot, with no 21-day grace period. The breath alcohol limits are unchanged. A “fail” on a portable test device is still more than the .08 limit allowed under the Criminal Code while a “warn” is a reading of more than .05 which is less than the legal maximum. However, the penalties for a “warn” reading are substantially higher. Drivers don’t receive a criminal

record under the IRP, but they lose their vehicle and their licence instantly. There is an appeal process, but only for drivers who lose their vehicles for 30 days. The program also levies larger fines and fees – from a $500 administrative fee for a suspension to a $700 towing fee and more. At least one driver stopped at the Surrey check stop got the full IRP treatment, a 90-day loss of licence and their vehicle seized for 30 days. Some critics complain the rules give police too much power. Delta-South MLA Vicki Huntington is hoping law enforcement agencies will exercise good judgement when applying the revamped rules she believes are a “little heavy-handed.” While Huntington acknowledged the need for safer driving practices, she said she is wary for drivers who may be seriously penalized without actually being legally over the blood alcohol limit of 0.08. “I’m having a little trouble with the ability of the police to take your car away or challenge you on the .05 limit because that isn’t illegal,” she said. The officers who deal directly with drunk drivers support the measures. “The new legislation gives us more power to enforce the laws,” said Surrey RCMP Const. Peter Neily. Boaz Joseph photos “Anything that is going to enhance Surrey RCMP were out in full force at a roadblock last safety on our roads, the Delta Police Friday on Golden Ears Bridge. Cpl.

Now Enrolling:

Celebrating old, new friends Melissa Smalley Staff Reporter

It was 20 years ago this week that Jenkins Showler Gallery first opened its doors on Johnston Road, with a roster of 16 artists. To celebrate the milestone, the gallery – now across the street from the original location – is launching a special anniversary show tomorrow (Oct. 2), entitled Old Friends/New Friends. “We’d always planned to do something to celebrate the 20th anniversary,” said George Demmer, gallery co-owner. “We’re hoping to reconnect with some of the gallery’s old friends, and see some new ones, too.”

Ron Hedrick painting

The exhibit will feature six B.C.-based artists, including Ron Hedrick, who has been with Jenkins Showler since the mid- ’90s. The show will feature the work of six B.C.based artists, three who have been with the gallery for several years, and three who are newer members.

CITY NEWS FIRE PREVENTION WEEK AND OPEN HOUSE Have you tested your smoke alarm recently? October 3 – 9 is Fire Prevention Week in Canada. This year’s theme, “Smoke Alarms, A Sound you can Live with!” focuses on how proper use of these devices can save your life. To learn more, be sure to visit the White Rock Fire Hall’s Open House on Sunday, October 3 from 1 – 4 p.m. Our local fire fighters will share how to properly install, clean and test smoke alarms.

WATERFRONT PARKING CHANGES This week, 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. A new $1.00 per hour rate will be in effect from November 1 – February 28. From March 1 – October 31 a rate of $3.00 per hour will be in effect. This new parking structure will eliminate the $2 per hour schedule, which is currently in place during the off-season, and should benefit local businesses.

TREES FOR TOMORROW DEVELOPER INFORMATION MEETING 1285 and 1295 Kent The City of White Rock has received an application for a Development Variance Permit to reduce the rear yard setbacks in order to allow the subdivision of these two lots into three. A developer information meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, October 12, 2010 from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. at the City Library at 15342 Buena Vista Avenue for the public to review this application. The meeting will be an open house format with a display outlining the details of the proposed development. For more information, please contact Peter Cross at 604.329.2673 or petercross@live.ca.

RIDE-SHARE WEEK Ride-Share Week is taking place from October 4 – 8 and is part of a National Ride-Share campaign to raise awareness about ridesharing. Instead of driving alone to work this week, connect with others online at www. ride-share.com. By simply registering online, you will be eligible to win some great prizes, such as Chevron gas coupons, BC Ferry vouchers and a chance to win a VIA Rail trip for two through the Rockies! How are you getting to work this week?

GLOBAL TV NEEDS PHOTOS Act quickly and your photo of White Rock could be on TV! The October 2 broadcast of Global BC’s Saturday Morning News is highlighting White Rock in their Small Town Feature from 7-10 a.m. and they need photos! Send your photo of White Rock today to Meteorologist Kristi Gordon at weekendnews@globaltv.com and then watch for it on Saturday morning.

Spreading the word on fire safety line for installing the alarms, it is in everybody’s best interest to comply sooner rather than later, Schlase said. Firefighters have been delivering notices advising residents of the change. As for children in the community, Schlase said White Rock elementary students have a chance to win one of two bikes, simply by completing and returning a brochure on fire safety. One bike will be awarded per school (White Rock and Peace

Schlase is hopeful residents will get in on a chance to practise their fire readiness, during a Community Fire Drill Oct. 6. Fire crews will be out in the community at 6:30 p.m., sounding off sirens to remind people of the drill, he said.

White Rock firefighters are marking Fire Prevention Week – Oct. 3-9 – with an open house, community fire drill and contests. Deputy fire Chief Bob Schlase said Fire Prevention Week is also a good time to remind residents of new regulations that mandate smoke alarms be installed in all residences built prior to 1979. “It’s a great change,” he said of the changes to the B.C. Fire Code that took effect in May. While there is no stated dead-

COULD YOU USE A LIFT? If any of the following sound familiar to you, talk to one of our customer service representatives today to find out how a lift chair could help you or your loved one.

You avoid sitting in some chairs because they are “too low” or “too hard to get out of.” You need help getting out of your chair, or you “drop” into it when sitting down. You have a condition such as arthritis in your hips or knees which causes pain when you get into or out of a chair.

win! Enter for your chance to

Southridge Junior School student and musical prodigy Spencer Zezulka will perform a solo piano recital in Vancouver this weekend. The nine-year-old musician will be the feature performer at the recital Oct. 3 at the Tom Lee Music Hall, 929 Granville St. Although he’s only played piano for four years, Zezulka’s talent has already taken him to prestigious music festivals around the world. In 2008, he took part in the International Music Festival Masters School in Italy, where he

was the youngest participant in the event’s history. Earlier this year, he performed at both Steinway Hall and Carnegie Hall in New York. Zezulka will perform eight pieces at Sunday’s 5 p.m. recital, including Bach, Beethoven and Chopin. Admission is by donation, and all proceeds from the event will go to the Alexa Middelaer Fund, which aims to reduce impaired driving-related deaths, in honour of the four-year-old who was killed by an impaired driver in 2008.

Smoke Alarms: Up, Down and All Around White Rock Fire Rescue Department Reinforces New Mandatory Smoke Alarm Rules during Fire Prevention Week, October 3-9, 2010 In an effort to better educate communities throughout North America about smoke alarm recommendations, the nonprofit National Fire Protection Association (NFPA ) is promoting “Smoke Alarms: A Sound You Can Live With!” as the theme for this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, October 3-9, which White Rock is supporting locally. NFPA has been the official sponsor of Fire Prevention Week for 88 years. “Many homes in White Rock may not have any smoke alarms, not enough smoke alarms, alarms that are too old, or alarms that are not working,” says Bob Schlase, Deputy Chief of the White Rock Fire Rescue Department. “We want residents to understand that a working smoke alarm is mandatory in every home due to changes in the BC Fire Code as of May 1, 2010. I am also advising that smoke alarms are on every level (including the basement), outside each sleeping area and inside each bedroom. And, if a smoke alarm is 10 years old or older, it needs to be replaced.” According to Bob Schlase, smoke alarms can mean the difference between life and death in a fire. NFPA statistics show that working smoke alarms cut the chance of dying in a fire nearly in half. But they must be working properly to do so. The association’s data shows that many homes have smoke alarms that aren’t working or maintained properly, usually because of missing, disconnected or dead batteries. Roughly two-thirds of all home fire deaths result from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms. The White Rock Fire Rescue Department will be hosting an Open House Sunday, October 3, from 1 – 4 pm and a Community Fire Drill Wednesday, October 6 at 6:30 pm during Fire Prevention Week to promote “Smoke Alarms: A Sound You Can Live With!” locally, and to help White Rock residents understand the BC Fire Code changes and NFPA’s smoke alarm recommendations. Through these educational, family-oriented activities, residents can learn more about the power of smoke alarms, newer options for installing and maintaining them properly, and ultimately, how to better protect their loved ones from fire. NFPA and White Rock Fire Rescue Department agree that interconnected smoke alarms offer the best protection; when one sounds, they all do. This is particularly important in larger or multi-story homes, where the sound from distant smoke alarms may be reduced to the point that it may not be loud enough to provide proper warning, especially for sleeping individuals. “Most people have a sense of complacency about smoke alarms because they already have one in their homes. Fire Prevention Week provides an excellent opportunity to re-educate people about smoke alarms, new technologies and expanded options for installation and maintenance,” says Judy Comoletti, division manager for NFPA public education. “Ultimately, we want this year’s campaign to serve as a call to action for households nationwide to inspect their homes to ensure that their families have the full smoke alarm protection that’s recommended.” White Rock Fire Rescue Department offers the following tips for making sure smoke alarms are maintained and working properly: Test smoke alarms at least once a month using the test button, and make sure everyone in your home knows their sound. If an alarm “chirps,” warning the battery is low, replace the battery right away. Replace all smoke alarms, including alarms that use 10-year batteries and hard-wired alarms, when they’re 10 years old (or sooner) if they do not respond properly when tested. Never remove or disable a smoke alarm. To find out more about Fire Prevention Week programs and activities in White Rock, please contact the White Rock Fire Rescue Department at 604 541-2121. To learn more about “Smoke Alarms: A Sound You Can Live With!,” visit NFPA’s Web site at www. firepreventionweek.org.

He also previously defended the government’s approach to creating integrated police teams in answer to calls for force regionalization. “Since that time a lot of integration has taken place, a lot of sharing of resources has taken place,” Oppal said Tuesday. Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs president Stewart Philip criticized the government for not consulting aboriginal or women’s groups in planning the inquiry. Oppal pledged families of missing women will have a voice. “I want to talk to all those people who lost loved ones,” he said. “We’re prepared to listen to anybody who has relevant evidence to give.” Pickton is serving a life sentence with no chance of parole for 25 years for six counts of second-degree murder but himself claimed to have killed 49 women. Hearing commissions investigate and make findings of fact and potentially of misconduct. Oppal, who led one previous inquiry into policing in B.C., has until Dec. 31, 2011 to table his findings.

Fires, drought in B.C. point to climate shift Tom Fletcher Black Press

The second straight hot, dry summer in central and northern B.C. produced the biggest burned area since the province started fighting forest fires, and the lowest northern river levels ever recorded. Fall rains have mostly doused the 2010 forest fires, but not before they burned 350,000 hectares of land. That’s an area larger than Metro Vancouver, and it’s nearly a third bigger than last year’s total burned area. The summer of 2009 holds the distinction of being the most

expensive B.C. forest fire season ever, with $382 million spent. The total for 2010 is expected to come in at a relatively modest $230 million, still more than twice the average for the past 10 years. Forests Minister Pat Bell said last week that the bill was reduced this year, mainly because the largest fires raged in areas with no human habitation. And the affected area was so large, partly because of conscious decisions to let some of them burn. The 2010 forest fire season also produced a new term, the forest fire “complex.” These linked fires over huge areas

presented another level of difficulty. The recent pattern of drought and fires is the latest indication that climate change is being

more acutely felt in B.C.’s north, Bell said. “Some of the most recent work that has been done by the climate change people

indicates that there could be a warming of as much as four to five degrees Celsius in the north, two to three degrees in the south by

2050,” Bell said. “If that were to occur, clearly that would change things in terms of the environment we’re facing.”

Bell has lived in Prince George for 22 years, and he said the last two summers have been the hottest and driest he has seen.

• REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONALS

T

he Deveau Team has some positive answers to the toughest questions in real estate.

Sharon has been selling real estate in South Surrey/White Rock for over 25 years.

“How much do you want to pay to sell your home?” asks Sharon Deveau. When selling their home, folks are often concerned not only with results, she says, but with the actual costs involved.

Jason Deveau joined the business 8 years ago, and Jeff 6 years ago. It was a joint decision to open an Assist-2-Sell office 5 years ago. However, the Deveaus have now decided to offer the public (they feel) a much better real estate commission model .

“New Options Realty offers real estate services that combine both “Options and Results.”

“We could see times are changing, and so is the real estate industry.”

“Regardless of which company you choose, if priced correctly your home will sell,” the Deveau’s point out. The question is, how much are you willing to pay?

The Deveau’s take into account that both Buyers and Sellers are more educated now, and have unlimited access to properties through the Internet, as well as other sources.

“With New Options Realty we give you choices,” says Sharon. “Working with us provides options as to how you wish to market your home.” Regardless of your preferences, rest assured that the Deveau Team provides full service as well as a very competitive commission structure. After all, the real question is “What is our mutual goal?” “The sale of your home for top dollar, in the shortest amount of time, with the least amount of hassle.”

t’s been over five years since Sharon, Jason and Jeff Deveau started exploring different commission models and they have now developed a model that they are confident will be a great success.

is 100% devoted to homebuyers. They offer their undivided care & attention to help homebuyers find & purchase their next home. Q: Are there any up-front or hidden charges?

The Deveau’s took some time to answer questions that they are frequently asked.

A: No! Home sellers pay us after we sell their home. If we don’t sell their home, they don’t owe us anything.

Q: How much local real estate experience do you have?

Q: Some people say that independent real estate companies aren’t here to stay. Is that true?

A: We have over 40 years combined experience as successful local REALTORS®. As well, both Jason & Jeff were born & raised in the area so they have strong roots in the community & vast local knowledge.

A: No. Ask Bay Realty, they have been serving this area for over 30 years with great success!

Q: How many REALTORS® are at your office? A: We have 7 REALTORS® at our office, 4 White Rock Realtors (The Deveau Team and their Buyer’s Specialist Maureen Mendez), 2 Langley/Surrey Specialists and a Delta Specialist. Q: Do other REALTORS® show New Options Realty listings? A: They sure do. We would not have experienced the success that we have over the past several years that we have without the co-operation of our peers. Q: How can a small office properly service so many listings? A: It’s easy! We simply work more efficiently. Our REALTORS® are either Listing Specialists or Buyer’s Specialists. As well, time isn’t spent canvassing for listings, which allows our agents to devote more energy either selling your home or helping you find your next one. Q: What is a Buyer’s Specialist? A: A Buyer’s Specialist is a skilled negotiator who

Q: Have you (the Deveaus) won any awards? A: Yes! We are very proud of the awards we received in 2009: • #2 office in the Fraser Valley consisting of 6 - 12 REALTORS®. • Sharon and Jason were recognized by the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board as being in the Top 10 percent of all individual REALTORS®. They are both consistent members of the MLS Medallion Club. * Savings based on a commission of 7% on the 1st $100,000 and 2.5% on the balance and is used for comparison purposes only. Commissions are negotiable and not set by law.

e want to thank you for the sale of our home and for making the experience so pleasant. From the time we met we had great confidence in your professional ability, from the pricing to the details ending in the final negotiation and sale. Initially, we were attracted to the Deveaus for their commission structure, but we quickly realized that there was much more that was desirable in your friendly, courteous team approach. It was a real pleasure to work with you and we would certainly recommend you to our friends and anyone else who wishes to experience the personal touch in their real estate dealings.” - C. Ziebarth & J. Minchinton “We have had experience using Sharon Deveau and the Deveau Team and have had nothing but the most positive experiences with them. They are each the most hardworking, honest and professional REALTORS® we have had the opportunity to meet. We found they kept in constant contact with us as we sold our house and got us top dollar. With 3 young children they balanced our family’s needs by making the showings as easy on us as they could. They went the extra mile to help us find our new house by networking with other REALTORS® and door knocking on homes in our target neighbourhood. They were referred to us a number of years back and we don’t hesitate to refer them to anyone needing a professional REALTOR® . They are truly outstanding.” - R. & S. Malli “Sharon has helped us twice to buy and sell a home. She started off as our realtor, but has become a peronal friend. She loves what she is doing and it really shows. She loves placing people in the right home and having them feel happy with their choice.” - S. Anderson “Jason helped us buy our first home here in South Surrey. He was very easy to work with, very courteous and professional. If we were to make a move, Jason would be the realtor we would use.” - N. & S. Paul “Jeff Deveau possessed all of the qualities I look for when hiring someone to work for me. He was professional, knowledgeable and punctual. Although I am a particular buyer, Jeff stopped at nothing to find the exact property I was looking for. I will be hiring Jeff and The Deveau Team again in the future.” - J. Waversveld

I need a dental implant. Where should I go to have it done? to dental implants; some will perform the surgical placement of the titanium root (the implant). Fewer yet will provide both phases of the treatment. To determine where you should go for this service, it is best to do a little bit of research. At present Oral Implantology is not a recognized specialty in dentistry. The American Board of Oral Implantology, established in 1965, is the only recognized implantology board acknowledged in a recent United States Supreme Court ruling. (www.aboi.org) Often your family dentist will point you in the right direction; however, many offices may not be aware of many of the current implant solutions. A bit of research on the Internet will yield additional information on the possibilities and the procedures, and most dental implant web sites will have a “F.A.Q.” section, for example, what is the material of a dental implant? How is it inserted?

“Regular Joe” Plumber & Wife Speak Out and Reveal the Raw Truth About That Canadian “Multi-Millionaire,” Darren Weeks, and his How to Get Rich in Canada Seminars.

Brian Lauer a “Regular Joe” This guy, Darren Weeks, promises all sorts of things to us average Canadians about how we can get out of the “Canadian Rat Race” and on to the “Fast Track” He claims that people can start from scratch and become “Rich” in 5 years or less. He talks about wrestling back control of your finances from the Big Banks and Financial Planners. He says he teaches people how to buy Canadian Real Estate with “No Money Down”, and many other “creative” money making ideas and so on. Every time I used to read one of his ads, I thought, “Who could be dumb enough to fall for this guy’s smoke & mirrors?” Now, I’m going to tell you the raw truth about Darren Weeks and his “How to Get Rich in Canada” stuff. My name is Brian Lauer. I live in Kelowna, B.C. with my wife Donna and our 2 kids. I grew up in Saskatchewan, moved to B.C. in the early 70’s. After doing different jobs in the Alberta oil patch, and then in construction, I married Donna in 1991. A few years after getting married I was out of work for a few months and I decided to get into plumbing. It was pretty rough trying to make it on apprentice wages of only $9 bucks an hour back then – especially with a family to support. Once I got my Plumber’s ticket things were OK, but I always thought I could do better in life instead of just grinding it out 9 - 5. I was doing OK with my plumbing work. But at the end of the day I was always trading hours for dollars – and there always seemed to be more expenses than money in the bank. If I ever stopped working, the money stopped coming in. I had a $15,000 line of credit that I honestly thought I’d never pay off. Then in 2001 I saw an ad for one of these “Free Rich Dad” events. I had read “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” and I thought what the heck, maybe I should be a little more open minded – what can I lose at a ‘free’ seminar anyway? But in the back of my mind I was sure that they were going to try to get me all jazzed up and excited, and then try to sell me some $5,000.00 real estate course. I had told myself that I would only stay at the event until the “pitch” started, then I’d go home. What Donna and I discovered at Darren’s “How to Get Rich in Canada” seminar really shocked us. First of all, I was waiting the whole time for the “other shoe to fall” and wondering when I was going to get “pitched” the expensive Real Estate course. It never happened. The most expensive thing I could buy there was a book – and they weren’t hardly

mentioned. What was mentioned were rock solid ideas, tips and strategies that Darren himself has put to use in his own life to create millions of dollars in income and equity in his businesses, investments and Real Estate. The man doesn’t like the Big Banks or Financial Planning companies very much, and he showed us why not. He opened our eyes to a whole different way of thinking about money and wealth – and most importantly, he inspired us to take action and go for it! Within a week of attending that event we decided to make Real Estate investing our vehicle to wealth (but Real Estate is not the only subject covered at Darren’s events – he also goes in depth about Business and investing). Over the next couple of months we got cracking and started buying our first investment properties. Now, just a few short years later, we have over 29 ‘doors’ (rental units) in B.C. an Alberta and we are looking for another apartment building to buy with our investors. The positive cashflow from our properties is more than enough to replace my plumber’s wages. Now I work at plumbing because I want to, not because I have to. While others in my field are worried about the economy and impending work shortages – all I can see is opportunity! And I know that if anything ever happened to me, we would be just fine with our Real Estate. Not only that, but we learned how to buy them right and at the right price, and our Net Worth now officially makes us millionaires twice over! (Which is sweet revenge for all the snickers we got from friends and family when we first told them what we were up to). Now you might be asking yourself how such a thing could happen to a blue-collar guy like me. The answer is simple. It’s all about learning how real proven and effective wealth creation systems work. I’m not talking about the “late nite t.v.” crap that comes in from South of the border either. I’m talking about proven methods and strategies that work right here in Canada – our home and native land. In spite of everything you’ve heard about investing in Real Estate being ‘risky’ – or the failure rate of starting your own business – or how crappy investing can be (and it can be – if you do it the way the ‘establishment’ tells you to) you too can learn how to get rich sooner rather that later. So here is the raw truth about Darren Weeks: Unlike most of those ‘pretend’ experts out there, he actually teaches stuff that works. He not only teaches it – he does it! He walks his talk and has businesses, investments and lots of Real Estate. Just like me, you’ve seen his ads in this paper before. You’ve gotten postcards from him. Or maybe you’ve seen him on TV, or heard his ads on the radio. If you haven’t been to one of his “How to Get Rich in Canada” events yet, I don’t know why not!. Maybe you think you’re too smart and know it all, or that it is going to be a rip off, like I did. But if you’re so smart, why aren’t you rich and happy? Maybe you are doing well already – but you could do better (many of Darren’s students are ‘retired’ in their 30’s or 40’s). Maybe you just don’t want to be sold something that’ll be a waste of your hard-earned money. About that you can relax. At this event there’s nothing for sale that’s more expensive than a book – so leave your cheque book at home!

I’ve got over two million reasons why you ought to check out what Darren has to say. What reasons do you have NOT to look at this? There is an event coming to White Rock on Thursday, October 7. This is a FREE event if you pre-register (otherwise it is $39.95 at the door) and registration is super easy. Either go on-line to wwwWhiteRockFastTrack.ca or call the 24 hr. live operator to register by phone at 1-877-RICH CDN (1-877-7424236). By the way, I wasn’t paid even a penny or given anything to write this about Darren Weeks. I am a regular Joe just like you. I did this as my way of saying thanks to Darren for everything he’s done for me and my family. And I’m not the only person who feels this way. Darren has spoken to over 200,000 Canadians at his events since he started in 2001. Many, just like me, are now making more money than they ever did before and are reaching their own financial dreams. My wife Donna just says “Wow!” about how much we have accomplished and how much more we are going to do and have. We continue to go to Darren’s events as often as we can, because we always learn something new, and meet great new people. All I can say is, “Don’t envy us. Join us” BRIAN LAUER, Kelowna, B.C.

Darren Weeks, Donna & Brian Lauer (after Brian’s make over!) P.S. Please don’t get my number and call me. The last thing I need is a zillion phone calls asking me about Darren Weeks. I’ve said what I have to say right here. What else could you possibly need to know? Go to his upcoming FREE Event and learn for yourself “How to Get Rich in Canada”. The event is in White Rock on Thursday, October 7 and you can go either at 12 noon or 7 p.m. The event is FREE with pre-registration, so go online to wwwWhiteRockFastTrack.ca or call 1-877-742-4236 to register with a live operator 24/7.

Working glass hero Glassblower Robert Gary Parkes lets his molten material talk to him Boaz Joseph

A

Black Press

platter’s life begins as a ball of honey-coloured goo that is rolled and grown like a snowball. In the expert hands of glassblower Robert Gary Parkes, the process for an onlooker is like watching a dancer perform unique choreography – unpredictable, mesmerizing... and sweaty. Inside his Loafing Shed Glass Studio, located on an organic beef and poultry farm in Port Kells, Parkes pokes a steel rod into “Molly” the electric furnace, grabbing his initial glob of molten glass. The first sampling is 2,000 degrees F and must be rolled on the rod constantly to stay round. Parkes spends the next 25 minutes rolling, adding more glass, prodding the glass into a re-heating chamber and blowing air through a pipe into the rod, thereby spreading out the still-nebulous dish. Even though at times it doesn’t glow orange anymore, the ball still radiates a searing heat. Over the years, Parkes’ arms have been singed bare of hair. An assistant periodically helps by using a wooden paddle to shield the glassblower from some of the heat. Parkes adds assorted colour to his creation by occasionally rolling the ball in small bits of coloured glass, or making use of steam from a wet newspaper that comes in contact with the glass. The coloured bits soon gel into the rest of the glass,

The work of Robert Gary Parkes, which includes vases, ornamental glass balls and paperweights, can be seen at the Sand, Fire and Water: Glass exhibit, running until Nov. 7. at Stewart Farmhouse (13723 Crescent Rd.) becoming attractive smears that can’t be predicted, but are welcome nonetheless. His face bathed in sweat, Parkes is always on the move – stay still and the glass will sag. Eventually, fine manipulation produces a shape recognizable as a platter. (The process is similar when Parkes makes other glass objects: Vases, ornamental glass balls, paperweights or even vegetables).

Then a critical period approaches. The cool-down process is literally the make-it-or-break-it period. Twenty-five years of experience in glass-blowing has taught Parkes that the glass will shatter quickly unless the surface and interior temperatures of the piece are the same. It must therefore be “cooled” in an oven to synchronize those temperatures before a longer � see page 36

I’ve got all this technology.” A thousand years ago, he explains, glassblowers didn’t have bricks for modern ovens and had to venture out in the search for sand, soda and ash. They also had to deal with people who were superstitious of glassblowers. Rich people resented glassblowers who, using smoke and flame, were able to produce items that looked like gems, Parkes says. Even with the high technology of the modern studio, Parkes still works hard for his creations. He is battered by searing heat from the molten glass on the steel rod – heat that

It’s agony, and you have to learn how to deal with that.” But the results on the studio shelves speak for themselves: crystal balls with “ocean” scenes inside them, ornate vases and glass cucumbers (with stems). Although the final results can never be predicted, Parkes is still able to channel the amorphous, glowing blobs in a direction that suits him.

Hill to get personal at show Melissa Smalley Staff Reporter

His songs have been heard by millions around the world, but when Dan Hill performs at two sold-out shows in White Rock this month, it will be only for a few dozen audience members. “I really like the small show, ’cuz I like to make it an extension of the living room,” the Grammy and Juno awardwinning singer/songwriter tells Peace Arch News in a telephone interview. “I’m trying to say, ‘look, we’re all the same,’ and take life stuff that we’ve all been through and touch on chords that are universal. It’s hard to do that if you’re in a stadium.” With a career spanning more than four decades, Hill is likely best known for his 1977 hit Sometimes When We Touch, which has been covered by the likes of Tina Turner, Barry Manilow and Rod Stewart. While none of Hill’s recorded work since this early smash hit has reached such popularity, he has built a career writing charttopping songs for other artists, including Celine Dion, Michael Bolton, 98 Degrees and The Backstreet Boys. He’s currently touring Canada in support of his latest album, Intimate – his first release since the mid-’90s. Six of the album’s tracks were penned for other pop artists over the past decade, and eight others are brand new. “I’m 56, so I know that my day job really is writing songs for other artists,” Hill says of what prompted him to return to the recording studio. “That sort of liberated me to make the album just to make it. I purposely put half the songs out there that are new songs. Ironically, a lot of those songs will be recorded by other artists and will likely do better commercially.” Along with his album, Hill is

Awarding winning singer/songwriter Dan Hill performs at two soldout shows in White Rock this month. promoting a book he published last year, I Am My Father’s Son – A Memoir of Love and Forgiveness, which tells the story of both his and his father’s lives. For Hill, the shift from songwriting to memoir-writing was a natural one. He comes from a family of writers – his brother is award-winning author Lawrence Hill, best known for his novel, The Book of Negroes – and the importance of writing is something that was instilled in him as a child. “When we wanted something when we were kids, we had to write a letter,” he explains. “We had to learn at a very early age how important self expression was.” Hill has no doubt this early exposure led him to a successful songwriting career. Hill wrote the original version to Sometimes When We Touch when he was just 19 years old, in an effort to impress an older woman. More than three decades later, Hill says, the song still elicits a “great reaction” at shows, even if he is sometimes torn about whether to perform it.

“It’s kind of like a catch-22. Part of me wants to apologize for doing a song that people have heard over and over for 20 years, but if you don’t do it, people get really upset.” While Hill admits he’s grateful to have written a song that opened so many doors, he says his approach to songwriting has evolved. “When you’re young, you feel things so emotionally. Your heart is always being broken… that becomes a real catalyst for writing songs. Now, you write songs for a million different reasons.” When Hill takes the stage at Blue Frog Studios Oct. 18 and 19, the audience can expect to hear a range of songs spanning his entire songwriting career. He also plans to read from his published works, and to tell tales of his life and where his songs came from – ideal for the studio’s intimate venue. “What I am is a storyteller. And the impact of the story, talking about how I wrote certain songs, or my family background… it has more of an impact in a small setting.”

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Ironman competitor ready for worlds Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Contributed photo

Jackie Davidson

When Jackie Davidson left for Kona, Hawaii Thursday – just a little over a week before Ironman World Championships – she was still having difficulty believing she belonged. Sure, she’d qualified for the prestigious event fair and square by virtue of her performance at Ironman Canada in August – she was the only Peninsula

athlete to make the cut for Kona – but still, the field for the Oct. 9 race is an impressive one, filled with worldrenowned athletes. “I feel like there’s so many really good, talented people out there, and then there’s me, a little housewife from South Surrey. I guess it hasn’t really sunk in,” said Davidson. Though she may have her doubts, the humble Davidson need only look at the

results from Ironman Canada for reassurance. In that grueling competition, held Aug. 29 in Penticton, she finished in 11 hours, 24 minutes and 57 seconds. Her time was less than one minute behind American runner Pamela Reed, who in 2002 became the only woman to ever win the overall title at the Badwater Ultramarathon, and whose exploits have been featured in magazines and television appearances.

“There were some very talented ladies there,” Davidson said. Ironman is comprised of a 3.8-km swim, followed by a 180-km bike ride and 42.2-km run. This year’s Ironman Canada was Davidson’s third – she also competed in 2007 and 2009 – but never before had she qualified for the world championships. She will compete � see page 40

After off-year, Semi Totems seeking return to the podium

Sports Reporter

ith few exceptions, rare is the high school sports team that is able to contend for a provincial title year in, year out. Teams might have a good run for a year, even two, but eventually, top players graduate and are replaced by young up-and-comers, and success ebbs and flows as a result. Unless of course, the team in question is the Semiahmoo Totems senior boys volleyball squad, which has been among the province’s best for the better part of the last decade, and where anything short of the podium is considered a failure. The Totems have qualified for triple-A provincials each year since 2004, and between ’04 and ’08 finished with the following results, respectively: silver, gold, silver, bronze, gold. And then there was last year, which saw the higher-seeded Totems bounced in quarterfinals by the G.P. Vanier Towhees. They finished sixth. “Losing that last game, it was heartbreaking. Devastating is the only word I can think of to describe it,” said Totems captain Matt Bonshor, one of three holdovers from the team’s 2008 championship team. “When you think about it, and put it into perspective, sixth-place in the whole province sounds pretty good, but we were shooting to be in that final.” Bonshor’s assessment aside, his coach, Kyra Iannone – now in her fifth year coaching the team – summed up last season’s disappointment into a much more blunt fashion. “Last year sucked,” she said. “Before last year, we’d gone something like

Semiahmoo Totems captains Liam Murphy-Burke, Jacob Klassen and Matt Bonshor are looking to return their team to the podium. eight years at B.C.s with a medal. We have high expectations, so last year was disappointing.” Looking to rebound from last season’s stumble, Iannone will be counting on three veteran starters, Bonshor plus assistant captains Liam Murphy-Burke and Jacob Klassen – who’ve all been starters since Grade 10 – to mesh

with a handful of young, athletic newcomers. The team entered the season as the No. 1-ranked senior boys team, but a loss last week to Fraser Heights – the Totems were missing a handful of players due to sickness and other commitments – knocked them down to third in this week’s rankings. The pressure will mount for the team’s

Grade 12 players, said Bonshor, as they look for redemption after last year’s early exit. “There’s some of that, sure. We want to show everybody that we’re better than that,” he said. “We underachieved last year, we know that, but we just have to go out and prove that this year is our year. For some of us, this is our last year, and we want to go out strong.”

Michael Dowhaniuk continued to tear up opposing defences last weekend, scoring a pair of touchdowns to lead his White RockSouth Surrey Blue Titans’ peewee squad to a 44-17 win over the Cloverdale Lynx. His two highlight-reel worthy touchdowns – on runs of 65 and 75 yards – give him five in two weeks. In his team’s win over North Surrey a week before, he tallied three more rushing TDs, on 50-, 65- and 80-yard bursts. In addition to Dowhaniuk’s two scores, White Rock got a touchdown from Jacob Hart – on a 45-yard rush in the first quarter – Jaxon Russell, and Valen Garcia, who had two long touchdown runs. Titans’ kicker Allen Edwards booted four converts.

Lifters to compete in India Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Despite the recent controversy surrounding security and safety at the Commonwealth Games – which has caused some athletes to pull out of the New Delhi, India-hosted event – two Peninsula weightlifters will be there when the event begins this weekend. Katelynn Williams and Christine Girard are both in India, confirmed Semi Weightlifting Club coach Dieter Stamm Tuesday.

news Survey finds little appetite to drop Mounties, attorney general says

Policing costs source of alarm for cities Jeff Nagel Black Press

WHISTLER – Cities alarmed about rising RCMP costs are pressing Ottawa to take on more of the burden and rein in spending by the Mounties. Policing devours close to half the total budget of many municipalities. Cities larger than 15,000 residents pay 90 per cent of RCMP costs and their mayors want that cut to 70 per cent – a proposal the federal government rejected this summer. Ottawa also refused to move to a 50-50 split in costs for most smaller communities, which now pay 70 per cent. Civic leaders now plan to press federal cabinet ministers and B.C. Conservative MPs to rework the formula and provide more RCMP accountability. “Every mayor and council that has RCMP are concerned about the costs,” City of North Vancouver Mayor Darrell Mussatto said at the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention in Whistler. The push for cost control comes amid negotiations to renew B.C.’s contract with the RCMP – which expires in March of 2012 – and growing debate over whether to instead shift

Attorney General Mike de Jong said he has found little interest from cities for a change in policing. to a provincial police force. Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender, a civic observer in the talks, said some progress has been made. The federal government has agreed to cover 30 per cent of the cost of integrated regional policing teams and cadet training, up from 10 per cent. The province has rejected federal attempts to download even more costs on cities, he said, but added mayors remain worried. “The costs are going up whether it’s salaries or new equipment needed,” said RCMP Pacific Region Deputy Commissioner Gary Bass, who met with a number of mayors at UBCM Tuesday. Bass said the issue isn’t limited to the

RCMP, adding cities with municipal forces are also struggling with rising costs. “It’s reaching a tipping point,” Salmon Arm Coun. Kevin Flynn said, adding cities like his may be forced to cut the number of officers. “I understand that you are concerned,” Attorney General Mike de Jong responded. “So are we.” De Jong said he’s canvassed RCMPpoliced cities and found almost no appetite to actually abandon the Mounties.

ROTH, Charlotte Caroline (nee Britton) ROTH, Charlotte Caroline (nee Britton) passed away suddenly but peacefully on September 24, 2010 in Peace Arch Hospital in White Rock B.C., at the age of 82. She was born in Chilliwack, B.C. on March 21, 1928 to Elsie and Ernest Britton. She was predeceased by her parents, five of her six brothers, her son’s wife Bonnie and her granddaughter’s husband Darryl. She is survived by Richard or “Dick”, her husband of 62 years, four children, Jane (Bert), Kirk, Tim (Debbie) and Hilary, as well as ten grandchildren, Zach, Alicia (Chris), Ross, Jason, Adam (Irene), Shaun, Gibson, Candace, Callum and Hamish plus two great grandchildren Dylan and Jager and her remaining brother Tony (Renee). She is fondly remembered by many cousins, nieces and nephews and the close friends on the street they have resided on for 35 years. Affectionately known as “Chick” or “Chickie” she spent her early years in Chilliwack working as an operator for BC Tel., where she acquired many lifelong friends. As Dick was posted to various Armed Forces Bases around Canada, Chick and their three little children at the time, moved around the country with him. When Dick finally retired from the Forces in 1975, Dick and Chick settled down in Ocean Park, Surrey B.C. As all the older children had grown and left home it was a new life for Dick, Chick, and their youngest, Hilary. Chick enjoyed their home on 129th street. She liked gardening outside and was known for her “green thumb” and all her indoor potted plants. She loved the various pets they had as a family, Fred, Amy and Jack. Chick enjoyed knitting, especially baby sweaters, and was an expert at word puzzles, games, and crosswords. After Dick’s retirement, they travelled across North America by van and shared the sights of the countryside together. As the years went by vascular dementia stole Chick’s mind but not her spirit. There was always a spark of feistiness, and humour that gave us as a family hope. Special thanks to Dr. Joshi, and the staff on 6N at Peace Arch Hospital especially Melanie, Diane, Christine, Lee, and Elisse and Heidi in Emerg. A Celebration of Life will be held later this week in Ocean Park, Surrey and a private graveside ceremony for family only in Chilliwack at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Neonatal Intensive Care Nursery at BC Children’s Hospital. No more pain, no more confusion, no more reasons why. It is just peace now sweet mother of mine. We have all been changed because of your love for us Mum. We love you and will forever miss you. Rest well.
