Well runs deep: White Rock’s E. coli scare was not the first hiccup in the city’s water system. Historian Vin Coyne says the issue has been oft-turbulent for decades.  see page 11

Advisory lifted after tests clear

Full study ahead for WR water Alex Browne Staff Reporter

White Rock’s boil-water advisory was lifted Wednesday after several days of testing showed no trace of E. coli bacteria in the system. Now, Epcor, Fraser Health and city officials are promising a full study of how E. coli got into the water supply in the first place, as well as how the crisis was handled. But Epcor’s David Rector warned a full report would likely take “months, not weeks” to compile. Mayor Catherine Ferguson promised the study would be an “open and transparent” process. The boil-water advisory had been in place since Aug. 20, after routine quality testing of water throughout the city found a positive E. coli reading of one count in 100 ml at one sampling site. Subsequent investigation traced the problem to the city’s two reservoirs at Merklin Street, one of which registered a two-in-100 ml reading for E. coli. A minimum of three days of negative tests were required before Fraser Health would consider lifting the advisory. According to medical health officer Dr. Elizabeth Brodkin, clean water had been running through the system since Aug. 25. But she said it had been felt advisable to continue thorough testing to ensure the city’s well-based supply of drinking water was safe. Monitoring of the hospital and Peninsula physicians for any spike in symptoms of E. coli exposure also continued, Brodkin said. However, while cases of gastro-intestinal illness were seen during the advisory, none could be attributed directly to the water supply, she said. It’s believed bird droppings were behind the E. coli scare. Epcor’s best guess is that the contamination entered the system from the roof of the highest Merklin reservoir. Both Merklin reservoirs and the Roper Avenue reservoir have since been drained and cleaned with a chlorine disinfectant, and the roofs, flushing, vents and hatches of all reservoirs will be replaced and upgraded, Rector said. Rector said he was informed late Tuesday by Fraser Health that the boil-water advisory was about to be lifted.  see page 4

Armed man arrested at gunpoint Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Multiple reports of an armed man walking along the 19200-block of 16 Avenue resulted in a “Code 5” takedown by police Sunday. Surrey police, assisted by a police dog team, arrested a man at gunpoint around 4 p.m. Aug. 29, said Const. Kenn Meglic. And while officers quickly determined the “so authentic-looking” firearms – one

pistol and one rifle – were actually paintball guns, the situation was treated no less seriously than if the weapons had been real, Meglic said. “We had multiple complaints... (of) a Caucasian male in camouflage with what appeared to be a semi-automatic weapon, walking down the street,” Meglic said. It “obviously terrified people.” Meglic said the male told officers he got lost in the bushes while playing paintball

with friends and had ventured out onto the street to get his bearings. And while it doesn’t appear there was any intent on the man’s part to cause trouble, Meglic said police take no chances – and neither should the public. He commended those who called police for not trying to deal with the matter themselves. A 42-year-old Surrey man was arrested and released at the scene. Investigation is ongoing, and charges are possible.

We all like our privacy — but in this type of situation, we need to know the facts of the situation and how it affects us as soon as possible, because one sip of water could be severely damaging to our health. This is particularly true of people who have significant health challenges. This isn’t fear-mongering. E. coli was the cause of seven deaths and 2,500 people becoming sick in Walkerton, Ont. 10 years ago. That situation never should have happened – but it did. Epcor does a far better job in watching over the White Rock water system than the bumbling Walkerton employees did. However, it and FHA could have done a much better job of communicating the seriousness of the situation to every single person affected. Hopefully, they will learn from this situation and do much better in the next emergency. White Rock council is quite right to insist on a much better emergency communication plan being in place. This must apply to any type of emergency – whether it is another problem with the water system, a train derailment or a severe flood, as happened along Marine Drive several years ago. Our society may be much better connected, but doorto-door and face-to-face communication still works best in cases like this. Frank Bucholtz writes Fridays for the Peace Arch News.

Minister briefed on HST before election Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – A briefing document was written for Finance Minister Colin Hansen exactly two months before the 2009 B.C. election, to prepare him for questions on Ontario’s decision to sign on to the harmonized sales tax. That briefing note and other government documents obtained under freedom of information legislation detail what would emerge a few months later as B.C.’s own HST: an exemption for lower priced new homes and low-income earners, and a 12 per cent combined sales tax rate that could make it “revenue neutral” to the province. Hansen said in an interview Wednesday he doesn’t remember

Hansen said that study was based election, and we were at the end of

NDP leader Carole James said Campbell and Hansen repeatedly told the public the HST was “not on our radar” before the election, but the documents show ongoing interest at the staff level as Ontario moved ahead in early 2009. “It’s ridiculous, it’s worse than ‘the dog ate my homework’,” James said. “He didn’t read his documents, he wasn’t paying attention to them, he wasn’t thorough about looking at the documents on the HST?” James added that Hansen and Campbell were asked repeatedly in the legislature if there were staff discussions or briefing notes on

the HST before the election, and they replied that there were none. Hansen said he and Campbell met with deputy finance minister Graham Whitmarsh on May 14, two days after the election, and it was then they were told provincial revenues were down an additional $1.5 billion. Told to review options for meeting the pre-election budget targets, ministry staff came back with proposed tax hikes, spending cuts and the federal offer to pay $1.6 billion in transition funds for adopting the HST, Hansen said. “That was the first time that actually got our attention,” Hansen said, adding that it led to cabinet’s decision in July 2009 to go ahead with the tax.

water quality – which has become company policy as a result of the crisis – have been embraced, he said. He noted, however, it would, at best, inform only twothirds of consumers. “There’s no one silver bullet in getting the word out,” he said, noting Epcor would take advantage of all available means of communication – including Twitter – in any future waterquality advisory. Meanwhile, White Rock council has directed staff to develop a “temporary process” which will make city employees available to assist Epcor in door-to-door notification for any future water advisory. “Even though Fraser Health Authority has declared (the recent boil-water advisory) a low-level advisory, council believes the city should do as much as it can to assist the utility in the notification process,” Ferguson said in a statement.

Surrey RCMP are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a man after a female reported she was grabbed by a driver on 24 Avenue. According to a Sept. 2 news release, the female told police she was walking in the 17600-block of 24 Avenue around 4 p.m. Aug. 21 when a Caucasian man in a grey or blue sport utility

vehicle grabbed her by the wrist and tried to pull her into the vehicle. The man is described as in his late -50s to early 60s with medium-length grey hair and short grey facial hair. Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 604-599-0502. “We do believe this to be a serious incident,” Const. Peter Neily said.

As of Monday, he said, Epcor and Fraser Health had received three days of sample results showing no contamination of the water. Epcor recommended extending the advisory an extra day, Rector said, noting there were a lot of “dead ends” in the system and he had wanted to make sure that no contamination had travelled there. But all tests “from wellhead to tap” showed the system was clean, and Rector said he was confident that even older apartment buildings and condos would not be harbouring any contamination. “E. coli doesn’t live very long, anyway,” he said. Rector advised residents, particularly those who were away during the crisis, to open all taps for “a good minute” before resuming water use, and to make sure that all ice made before the

advisory was issued was thrown out. Study of the White Rock crisis would provide a benefit of “education,” he said, adding that while Epcor had a “very good understanding of the working of an operating system,” no one has yet reviewed all aspects of a water-quality emergency. “A well-informed customer is my best ally,” Rector said, acknowledging that notification of residents had emerged as a “hot-button issue.” He said that while he felt Epcor had followed current best practices on notification, “the message we got back from White Rock was that they would like something different.” And while he feels communications were effective and timely, “the fact my customers don’t is a concern.” Suggestions, such as the use of automated telephone dialing of account holders with updates on

Canada Line worth the cost ne year ago, the Canada Line opened to much fanfare. People pushed their way through crowds in Richmond to become the first passengers on the rapid transit train that links to downtown Vancouver and the airport. Some skeptics doubted the passenger volumes, but one year later, no one can question the demand for rapid transit. The Canada Line has carried 36 million passengers since its opening, transporting more than 100,000 riders each day. With that number, TransLink has hit its ridership target two years ahead of schedule. As most passengers know, the train is regularly jammed – as it was Feb. 19, when a record number of people, 287,379, boarded the train during the middle of the 2010 Winter Olympics. But not all passengers stepped onto the new train with excitement when it opened last September – especially those from the Peninsula. Its implementation meant buses travelling directly from White Rock/South Surrey to Downtown Vancouver were re-routed to stop at Bridgeport Station, where riders now transfer onto the Canada Line. Many local residents were vocal in their opposition, claiming the train was inconvenient, infeasible for people with mobility issues and a safety concern, considering passengers would have to catch their connections, sometimes at night, outside River Rock Casino. It’s hard to argue now, however, that the new system isn’t an improvement, especially considering the number of new users utilizing it. TransLink surveys show half the train’s users are used to public transit, having boarded a bus before the new shiny trains began shuttling down the elevated guideway, while the rest have either abandoned their cars or simply never made the trip before. That in itself proves that rapid transit is worth its enormous price tag. The popularity of the Canada Line shows that people are willing to get out of their cars, if the transportation method is convenient. Providing more rapid transit lines is the task TransLink now has before it. Be it the oftdiscussed Evergreen Line, an extension of the Expo Line, a Broadway corridor line, a South Fraser link to the Valley or even an extension of the Canada Line, building new rapid transit lines is hardly rapid. Taxpayers must be willing to loosen their purse strings to grow a form of proven public transit.

An effort well worth praise Editor: Open letter of thanks to the citizens of White Rock. When times are tough, we learn a lot about people. During the 12-day boil-water advisory, we witnessed friends helping neighbours, businesses adjusting for customers and our entire city showing extreme patience. Over the past two weeks, other Canadians saw it, too. We can all be especially proud of fire Chief Phil Lemire. As emergency co-ordinator, he worked tirelessly day after day with Epcor and Fraser Health Authority. As a result, no one became ill. We’ve all known that White Rock is a beautiful city.

He was advised the next day by the employer, who was now aware of his fingerprinting requirement, that they hired someone more suitable.

prepared to offer him the job? It can take more than 30 days to complete the check. No employer is going to wait for more than a month to hire a new employee. Plus, there is a stigma attached to the fingerprinting. After all, if police have to fingerprint the individual, then there must be something wrong with the candidate. We are also suspicious of the timing of this new law – midsummer. No one we’ve spoken to seems to know anything about it. The government knows how egregious it is so they snuck it through when no one was looking.

Our son has a valid driver’s licence, a SIN number, credit cards and has filed tax returns since he was 17. Plus, his references vouched for him. Apparently, this is no longer good enough. So now our son continues to look for work simply because he was required to prove he is innocent of a crime committed by another. In total violation of our Charter of Rights, our politicians have passed an absurd and intrusive law that reverses the legal concept that a person is innocent until proven guilty. K.J.

More answers still needed Editor: Epcor needs to provide the residents with the information to ensure that the water system is being properly maintained and upgraded so that the water system will be safe and serviceable for the future. Serious questions remain unanswered. A full review of the system must be undertaken. Why was flushing of the system started when they had not tested the reservoirs? How did birds access the reservoirs if all screens were in place? How often are the reservoirs cleaned? What is the current state of the system, mains, pumps and reservoirs? Is Epcor spending the required funds to sustain the system? What will compel them to consider alternative treatment processes rather than chlorine? These questions must be answered to restore the community’s confidence in this utility. Roger Emanuels, White Rock

Forced to prove innocence Editor: Re: Volunteers face fingerprinting, Aug. 25. Our family has already experienced the sinister nature of this new law. Our son was laid off in April after three years of full employment. He has been diligently looking for work since and was finally shortlisted by a local employer. He made it through two interviews and was asked for three references and to submit to a criminal background check. He complied with both. He was contacted by Surrey RCMP the next day and advised that he had to come down for

White Rock Mayor Catherine Ferguson speaks to longboarders outside city hall Aug. 25.

City streets no place for boarding Editor: How do we explain to healthy, intelligent young people that riding their longboards in and around the roads and/or sidewalks of White Rock is not only dangerous to them and to the elderly, but let’s not forget our animals and property. I’m about 80 now, and have been through the skateboard craze, years ago in Toronto. It’s nice to see these kids having fun, but they always carry it further by building ramps, skating down concrete steps, years ago smearing wax on concrete corners so the board rides smoother and faster. The purple wax is not cleaned off after they’ve had their fun. Also, the wheels and boards chipped and ruined property. That’s now archaic. They’ve advanced to the longboard, if the family can afford one. They are still a danger to the public with the hills in White Rock. I’m impressed with the balance and agility these kids have. But safety for others is not what they are thinking as they rattle down the street, weaving in and out of obstacles (read: pedestrians). I believe there is a park built specifically for ‘boarding.’ Yep, I know, it’s sorta out of the way for the kids. White Rock’s steep, hilly streets are right at hand. (Editor’s note: South Surrey Skate Park is located at 148 Street and 20 Avenue) I sympathize with these longboarders – but sorry, kids, I seriously feel they are dangerous to the public if you slip up and the board comes flying through the air and hits some unsuspecting child or adult. Ruth Carrier, White Rock ■ Being one of many White Rock senior pedestrians, I was delighted to see on the news that our mayor, Catherine Ferguson, defended our bylaw regarding skate- and longboards. She refused to be intimidated by yet another protest and the bylaw will remain in force.

As a pedestrian, I am already dealing with speeding scooters, bicycles on the sidewalks and automobile traffic that disregards any posted speed limits or crosswalks. Longboards to our sidewalks would add to an already unsafe situation. Let us see now that better enforcement happens. Claus Ritter, White Rock

Still not enough for kids in White Rock Exactly what does White Rock sports consist of? What does the city spend their leisure money on other than a tennis court that’s always full and a seniors centre and activities if you are over a cetain age? Growing up here, leaving this city as an adult and coming back here to raise children, I have seen that there is really no free outdoor activities for children to do 30 years ago or now. All we are interested in, as a city, is to bring more middle/upper-class people, with no kids. The city has recently put bike path signs through my neighbourhood. Why can’t it do the same for longboarders, rollerbladers and skateboarders? I know I drive more cautiously down these roads and I’m sure other people do, too. Please give these kids something positive to look forward to doing in their own community. And people, when you get this, do your best at being protected on the roads and always travel in a safe matter! Mary Popoff, White Rock ■ I would like to congratulate the two boys (Evan House and Kyle Grant) for taking on White Rock City Hall. I totally support what you guys are doing. I hope you can change city hall. If not, I’m sure the City of Surrey (South Surrey) probably allows what you guys are doing. I hope you guys can make differences. Keep up the good work, boys.

White Rock has returned to business as usual with clear, delicious water! On September 1, 2010, EPCOR rescinded the boil water advisory for the City of White Rock. EPCOR customers affected by the August 20 notice can stop boiling water and can resume normal water handling practices. White Rock Mayor and Council would like to thank everyone for their patience during these 12 difficult days. Residents and business owners did an admirable job of adjusting to the difficult circumstances. Thank you for helping friends and neighbours while continuing to welcome visitors to the city. The safety and health of White Rock residents is the City’s highest priority and Council will continue to review the processes to ensure they are doing the best they can to serve and protect residents. They will evaluate this situation with EPCOR, the Fraser Health Authority and the Province. Council has also called for an addition to the City’s Emergency Response Plan to include a protocol for dealing with water-related emergency issues. Staff is to work with EPCOR and the Fraser Health Authority to develop the procedure, which is expected to be completed by the end of December. Once again, Council wishes to thank residents and businesses for their understanding, their compliance with the boil water requirements, and their assistance in sharing information with their fellow residents, customers and visitors.

Parking along the waterfront just became more affordable! Effective September 1, the pay parking rates will be lowered back to $2 an hour. The seasonal rate of $3, in effect from May 1 to August 31, helped cover the cost of increased taxes that the City must remit on pay parking revenues.

DEVELOPER INFORMATION MEETING 15177 Thrift Ave. The City of White Rock has received an application to amend the CD-16 zone for 15177 Thrift Ave. The request is to increase the number of residential units from 202 to 260 in Towers 3 and 4 and allow minor changes to the commercial and residential floor space. The building heights, densities, and overall floor area remain unchanged. A developer information meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, September 7 between 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Elks Hall at 1469 George St. for the public to review this application. The meeting will be an open house format with display outlining the details of the proposed development. For more information, please contact Maylene Ginetz at 604-412-0310 or

DANGEROUS TREES ON ‘THE HUMP’ Having a safe city and a green city are among the top concerns of the Mayor and Council. Unfortunately, several trees on “The Hump” along the south side of Marine Drive were recently the cause of safety concerns. After being inspected by an arborist, it was determined that three of the trees would need to be removed due to structural defects. One tree could be saved. It was pruned and will be monitored every six months to track the rate of decay up the southern stem. According to Rob Thompson, Director of Engineering and Municipal Operations, it is City policy to preserve and protect trees whenever possible, however, in this case, the concern was that if the trees fell, they would likely pull retaining walls and soils from the bank down with them, creating erosion and slope instability. In order to ensure future slope stability, remedial plantings will occur in the near future.


Are you looking for a new challenge? The City of White Rock is currently inviting applications for the following positions: Skate Attendants • Up to 11 positions • Casual • Must possess first aid certificate • Application deadline is September 10 For complete position details, visit

ICBC trims auto rates Jeff Nagel Black Press

Motorists will get a modest break on basic auto insurance premiums after years of fat profits for the Insurance Corporation of B.C. The public auto insurer has been ordered to reduce basic rates 2.4 per cent effective Nov. 1. It’s a deeper cut than the 1.9 per cent ICBC had proposed because regulators at the B.C. Utilities Commission (BCUC) decided expenses were lower than expected, leaving room to lop off another half point. “They crunched the numbers and came up with a slightly different calculation,” ICBC president and CEO Jon Schubert said. “It’s the first time we’ve been able to reduce basic rates in more than a decade.” Less frequent claims and better driving weather are the main reasons for the reduced expenses, even though average claim costs continue to climb, especially for injury crashes. “It’s our customers’ smart driving that really allows us to do this,” Schubert said. ICBC will have to cut much further, however, to get basic rates back down to 2005 levels – increases in 2006 and 2007 raised basic premiums nearly 10 per cent. ICBC recorded another $232 million in net earnings for the first half of this year, the latest in a long string of hefty profits. And the provincial government this



year moved to tap some of the cash ICBC generates to pay down B.C.’s deficit. It ordered ICBC to hand over $487 million from its reserves and set aside similar dividends for Victoria in future years. Canadian Taxpayers Federation spokesperson Maureen Bader said rates should be cut even further so there’s less surplus money left for the province to raid. “There’s no way the average driver should have to be subsidizing the govenment’s pet projects like the B.C. Place roof and green energy subsidies,” she said. But Schubert said payments to the province are unrelated to basic rates, because they are paid out of profits made on the optional side of ICBC’s business. Basic rates are regulated by the BCUC because they are compulsory for all motorists and no private insurers compete with ICBC to provide the service. Optional rates, where there is competition, is unregulated. ICBC cut optional rates 3.3 per cent last year and dropped them 17 per cent over the past five years. Some industry observers have also questioned the need for ICBC’s large $3.1-billion reserve account. Schubert said it’s appropriate and noted ICBC’s reserve ratio is less than the industry average. “All insurance companies carry a certain amount of capital to make sure we’re able to meet our obligations and protect our customers from rate shock,” he said.

Patient gets MRI scan early Alex Browne Staff Reporter

Peter Tilbury got his MRI at Peace Arch Hospital after all – but he’s still concerned about the time others may have to wait for the same procedure. In an email this week to Health Minister Kevin Falcon, Tilbury says that while he got his magnetic resonance imaging scan this week, he believes the wait time for others joining the queue is now up to 16 months. “At what point does the wait time become unacceptable to you, your ministry and the government of B.C.?� he asked. The South Surrey man was to have waited a total of 12 months (until January 2011) for an MRI for a shoulder injury sustained in January this year. But Tilbury’s scan was fit into the schedule on Tuesday (Aug. 31), after Peace Arch News went to press with its story on Tilbury’s situation. “He was on an emergency waiting list, and there was a cancellation,� said

Fraser Health’s Joan Marshall. But Tilbury, who had emailed Falcon several times since June with his concerns about MRI wait times, fears others awaiting the scan won’t be so fortunate. In a new email to Falcon dated Aug. 31, and copied to PAN, Tilbury said the question of whether he needed an MRI in a private facility no longer needed an answer. “The bad news,� he writes, “is that the wait time for MRIs has now become 16 months (January, 2012).� Tilbury noted that wait times, which stood at 10 months in March, had already increased to 15 months in July. Falcon was still away on vacation this week and unavailable for comment. Ministry staffers deferred to Fraser Health for further comment. Marshall previously noted that MRI waits were a matter of a priority determined by each patient’s physician in consultation with a radiologist, and waits

could range from hours to months depending on the severity of the case. Marshall said Wednesday she stood

by Fraser Health’s earlier assessment that 14 months is the longest anyone would have to wait for an MRI at Peace Arch Hospital.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Water has often fed fires of controversy In the wake of the recent boil-water advisory in White Rock, prompted by the discovery of E. coli bacteria in the distribution system, former newspaper editor and historian Vin Coyne reviews the turbulent history of the city’s water utility. Vin Coyne


Special to the Peace Arch News

ater from a natural spring bubbled up in the little public right-of-way off Elm Street, filling the buckets and kettles of year-round residents as well as those who spent their summers in White Rock. Early townsfolk tapped the supply and installed a second pipe on Washington Avenue so beachgoers could heat their water over campfires. The steam ran under the government’s cattle quarantine barn adjacent to the railway and drained onto the beach. Train crews would wash and gather their drinking water from the stream. Helen McIntosh, whose parents came to Elm Street in 1910, recalled that the water supply would sometimes run low in the summer, but generally there was enough to meet demand. Then in June of 1913, when the McIntosh family and others arrived to spend their summer, they found that 10 permanent residents had taken over the water system. “They had gotten together during the winter and applied to Victoria for ‘dipping rights’ to the spring,” said McIntosh. This action by the newly incorporated White Rock Water Works Company Ltd. sparked some local controversy – the first of many the utility would face over the next 97 years. The new supplier reluctantly agreed existing homeowners could have free water for as long as they held their property. This agreement was in effect until the early 1930s. One of the founders of the water company was pioneer Fred Johnson, who tired of walking 500 feet from his home on Buena Vista to the spring. He convinced neighbours to help raise $1,000 to install a 50-galllon barrel and pipes to nearby homes. In 1915, the company began supplying other homes, and two

years later, Henry and Margaret Thrift donated land over natural springs at Buena Vista and Oxford to facilitate the first pumping plant. By 1921, the company received Victoria’s approval to use 50,000 gallons per day from the spring off Elm, and to construct a “dam” to store another 50,000 gallons. The company grew under the leadership of Johnson, who served as president from 1920-53 and who lived to see a new 103-foot, 368,000-gallon reservoir at North Bluff and Merklin named in his honour in 1963. In 1935, the company acquired 160 acres near Johnston and North Bluff from Surrey municipality for $300. At first, the water works planned to drill for more wells. But further engineering studies proved the plan infeasible; so two storage tanks were later built to serve the higher reaches of the town. The company drilled additional wells at the top of Oxford near Goggs and later on High Street. Then in the early 1950s, in a move even the canny Johnson had

White Rock historian Vin Coyne says controversy surrounding the city’s water supply is not a new development. Right, a reservoir under construction on Oxford Street in 1953 resulted in complaints of poor water quality. trouble explaining, the company built a huge, outdoor reservoir on its Oxford Street property. While young boys were challenged to get through the high wire fence so they could swim in the town’s drinking water and the frogs joined in a nightly chorus each spring, the reservoir heralded the beginning of controversial times for the water company. In 1957, the year White Rock incorporated as a city, controlling interest in the firm was purchased by a group of Vancouver businessmen, and appointed Major W.L.

city. Boundary Health Unit, which monitored quality, claimed algae and insect larvae in the reservoir was the cause. Health officials called for a roof over the reservoir at a cost of some $60,000 – a proposal the water works agreed to, provided a circulator system failed to solve the problems. “The circulator will force the water to rotate at such a speed that small flies could not hatch their eggs in the reservoir,” announced Hough. He reported the tanks at North Bluff and Johnston would be cleaned – for the first time, to his

knowledge. Health officials agreed that “although the water had been rather bad for three months during the summer, it has, however, been good over the long period.” Adequate water supply became the civic election issue in December 1958, with candidate Al Reusch calling for the utility company to supply adequate water. In 1961, the water company offered to sell the system to the city for $550,000, while retaining its 160 acres of land at North Bluff and Johnston. The offer was termed “highway robbery” by Cecil Ortner, who had served as water works treasurer. He went public on much of the firm’s business operations, leading the local newspaper to comment it was “too bad Mr. Ortner had not been so community-minded during his employment with the company.” The row over the purchase and an application to increase rates from $2.50 to $3.75 per household raged on into the mayoralty election campaign. Incumbent Harry Douglass and other council members opposed the purchase, claiming the city would be saddled with debt and exorbitant operating expenses. The opposing view was taken by former MLA Tom Irwin, who claimed the city could profit from the purchase. John T. Duffe, who headed a local ratepayers association, also strongly supported the city purchase. However, McDuffe changed his mind at the last minute and voted against the $700,000 referendum, claiming the city could get the system cheaper through expropriation. When the issue finally got to plebiscite in 1962, White Rock voters rejected the purchase by a four-to-one majority, going along with a newspaper editorial which stated anyone voting to buy the company must be a “blithering idiot.” The battles between the waterworks, city and users continued to erupt throughout the 1960s and on into the ’70s. The Oxford Street reservoir was deemed redundant by the early 1970s and later emptied, infilled and landscaped.  see page 12

Archer ushered in a period of calm and co-operation during 1970s  from page 11 Two adversaries were Bob Howse, the city’s works superintendent, and Hector MacDonald, the water company’s foreman, who had served in the armed forces with Hough. Though no fan of MacDonald, Howse had to change his tune when he found himself being inducted into the newly formed White Rock Kiwanis Club. There to share in the fellowship was another new member – MacDonald. The company changed its name to White Rock Utilities Ltd. in 1969 and sold off the 160acre holding where Semiahmoo Shopping Centre is now located. An era of co-operation came in 1970 when Tom Archer took over as manager. But even Archer’s cool approach couldn’t calm the storm that erupted after White Rock users were ordered to pay retroactively for a water rate increase granted in 1976. Alderman Ken Jones and five other residents had their water cut off for non-payment, but finally paid their bills and the fee to be reconnected “under protest.” Council at first refused to pay its $8,000 retroactive charge, but later gave in after the

company threatened to cut off the entire city. The city got another chance to purchase the utility when the company went on the market in 1977. Council decided it had other priorities, but there were a few red faces at city hall when a Delta couple, James and Kathleen Bromley, made the purchase for $750,000 – just $50,000 more than the plebiscite figure of 1962. The Bromley family sold the utility to the current owners, Epcor, in 2005. After two more rate increases, the 1988 White Rock Utilities Ltd. marked its 75th year of supplying water to 4,470 users in the city, a small section of Surrey and the Semiahmoo First Nation; proud of the constant improvements made to one of the last privately owned water utilities in the province. That year, the system pumped more than 500 million gallons, hitting peaks of nearly 2.6 million gallons a day during the summer months. What is the source of this hard, richly mineralized water?

Raw food on festival menu Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

Families are invited to head down to east beach in White Rock this weekend for a food, music and art festival at Organic Connections Café. The business – which is making use of the ocean-view property at 15622 Marine Dr. until it is leased – will host art sessions for children, live music and a stage for poetry reading, singing or dance performances. Set for Sept. 4 and 5 from noon to 8 p.m., the event will also give people the opportunity to taste – and sign up for classes to learn to prepare – raw food. The café specializes in the organic, vegetarian, sustainable fare, and began serving it through a take-out window during last month’s Spirit of the Sea Festival. Ocean Park resident Beverly Ashworth – who opened the volunteer-run service – said it was met with a positive response, and is now regularly open Thursday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Wind Walrath, an employee at Organic Connections Café, gets ready for the upcoming festival. For this weekend’s festival, she said chairs and tables have been brought in so customers can eat-in at the café. “It’s just a really comfortable place to come and meet and eat... it’s a place of conversation, a place to really build community. “People come together to be fed on many levels.” Although all current proceeds from sales go to purchasing food, Ashworth said she hopes to eventually see a profit and have the business grow. Her ultimate goal is a centre where people can eat raw food,

If she is unable to stay, Ashworth said she will find another location for the service. For now, she said she is working on making the café a permanent fixture on the beach, and has approached the cities of White Rock and Surrey about forming a partnership. “We’re hoping we’ll get the funding and support to carry through with these plans and stay there,” she said.

Boil Water Notice Ended for White Rock On September 1, 2010, the Boil Water Notice was lifted for the City of White Rock and the 80 South Surrey EPCOR customers after Fraser Health Medical Health Officer Dr. Elizabeth Brodkin confirmed that the water in household and commercial systems was safe to drink and use. EPCOR appreciates your understanding and compliance with the notice as we worked to resolve this situation. We moved as quickly as we could, while carefully and methodically cleaning the system. We thank customers for their patience through this process. EPCOR’s investigation identified reservoirs as the source of contamination and these have been drained, inspected and disinfected. Although the cause has not been conclusively identified, there was some microscopic evidence of contamination by birds. What should I do now that the notice has been lifted? Residents can stop boiling water prior to drinking or cooking, and resume normal water handling practices. In doing this, residents are advised to adhere to the following precautions: Residential customers should: x Flush all water-using fixtures for 1 minute. (Flush means run taps) x Run all cold water faucets for 1 minute before using the water x Drain and flush ice-making systems on their refrigerator x Drain and refill hot water heaters set below 45 degrees C (normal setting is 60 degrees C)

Commercial customers should: x Flush all water-using fixtures for 1 minute x Run all cold water faucets and drinking fountains for 1 minute before using the water x Drain all cisterns, and flush with clean water x Drain and flush all ice-making systems x Backwash pool filters and change media (filters) or water x Run water softeners through a regeneration cycle x Drain and refill hot water heaters set below 45 degrees C (normal setting is 60 degrees C) x Clean and disinfect all shared toys and diapering areas x Run food spraying sprinklers for 1 minute before using the water x Clean and disinfect all counters

Next steps The rooftops on both Merklin reservoirs will be upgraded to help prevent a situation like this from happening again. During the construction period, which may take several weeks, EPCOR will continue chlorinating the water so it remains safe. Customers may notice a slight chlorine odour in White Rock water during this time. Where can I get more information? Members of the public who have general questions can call EPCOR at 604-536-6112. Further information, including FAQs, is available at There are no indications to date from physician visits, hospital visits or provincial lab tests of illnesses associated with water quality. Individuals who are concerned about their personal health can speak with a HealthLinkBC nurse by calling 8-1-1, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Further health information is available at How can I provide feedback?

Your feedback is important. A formal debriefing on the White Rock Boil Water Notice will occur in the future with EPCOR, Fraser Health and the City of White Rock. Your comments will be taken into careful consideration and we invite you to please send them to us at Thank you in advance for taking the time to do so.

Training day for littlest Mounties Dozens of youngsters got a firsthand look at police work recently, during the RCMP’s annual Junior Police Academy. The day-long camp – held in five Surrey communities, including South Surrey – is an opportunity for police to build relationships with kids, said Sgt. Shelly Jacobsen. “It’s a chance for them to get to know the police in an unofficial setting,” Jacobsen, with the Mounties’ youth section, said. “Kids should feel comfortable interacting with the police when they leave the camp and consider us someone they can turn to.” The free camp, in its seventh year, is operated by the RCMP and the City of Surrey parks department, and is for children aged six to 10. It runs over five days in August at schools

in North Surrey, Guildford, Newton and Cloverdale. It was held locally on Aug. 27 at the South Surrey Rec Centre. More than 70 children participated that day, Jacobsen said. While one group did drills, others learned about crime scene forensics and police-style physical training. The “Junior Police Constables” were also treated to a police dog demonstration; a close-up look at police cars and even Air 1, one of the RCMP’s dedicated helicopters. They also had a chance to explore a tactical assault vehicle recently acquired by the Emergency Response Team. Questions put to officers at the South Surrey camp ranged from “do you have guns?” – posed to ERT Const. Taylor Daigle – to “why were you late?” The latter was directed at Const. Tammy Sandquist, a tactical flight officer with the RCMP’s Air Services Section, after Sandquist’s arrival at the camp via Air 1 was delayed when the team was called to assist in a search for “bad guys with guns” in Langley. “Yes, we got them,” Sandquist

assured the youngsters. The program includes badges, free T-shirts and a hot lunch for all. The officers who work with the children all volunteer their time, and the food and T-shirts are provided by sponsors. This year’s event saw the largest turnout for classes yet. Since the summer program was launched, more than 2,000 children have taken part. Many of them are repeat visitors. Surrey Parks’ Ali Mansoun said he has been part of the camp for the past four years,

Children taking part in the Junior Police Academy in South Surrey last week got a first-hand look at policing from officers such as Const. Tammy Sandquist (right). and has as much fun as the kids. “I get just as giggly,” he said. Most participants say they like the helicopter and police dogs best, Mansoun noted. “The ones that really get to you are the ones that say I get to hang out with a police officer all day.” - Tracy Holmes

Local concert to benefit orphaned children in Africa

Celtic Fantasy Alex Browne


Arts Reporter

here’s an undeniable resonance – and a strong thread of history – binding past, present and future in the Celtic tradition of music, literature and dance. Which should make A Celtic Fantasy (Saturday, Sept. 11, 7 p.m., First United Church, 15385 Semiahmoo Ave.) the perfect multi-generational attraction to support fundraising by a group of grandmothers who want to change the future for orphaned children. The concert – which combines the silver tones of well-known soprano Leanne Page with a hand-picked group of local instrumentalists, readers and dancers – is a special presentation of the Oneness Gogos. The Peninsula-based group is part of the Grandmothers to Grandmothers campaign run by the Stephen Lewis Foundation to assist the African grandmothers raising some 13 million children orphaned as a result of HIV/AIDS, and proceeds from the concert will go to this cause. Pianist Trudy Bishop – one of the performers – is also a member of the Oneness Gogos, and it was her idea to bring together Page, violinist Celia Collin and choreographer/dance teacher Maureen Lyon (and her traditional Celtic dance group The Tam O’Shanter Dancers) for what promises to be a magical evening of haunting melodies, lilting poetry and toetapping dance. Rounding out the list of performers are two of Page’s family – son Connor, 12, adding ornament and haunting quality on recorder, and husband Todd, providing rhythmic underpinning on guitar – plus, family friend Ann Schwartz (a noted pianist, she is also “a beautiful reader,” Page said) and Jim Nicol, whose authentic Scots’ brogue will bring just the right touch to many of the traditional verses. There’s also a strong feeling of celebrating family behind the concert, Bishop said. “The reason we chose the Sept. 11 date – while it’s infamous for another reason – is that Sept. 12 is Grandparents Day,” she said. “It would be nice if local seniors homes and facilities could assist residents in

Trudy Bishop, Connor Page, Maureen Lyon, Leanne Page and Celia Collin are performers participating in the fundraising concert A Celtic Fantasy, Saturday, Sept. 11 at 7 p.m. at First United Church, to benefit the Grandmothers to Grandmothers campaign. getting to the concert,” Page said. “It should be very nostalgic, I would think,” said Collin, formerly of the Aldoria Trio, who, in addition to lending her expert violin technique to the concert, has provided special arrangements of the featured folk tune medleys for the flexible instrumentation of the group. While it’s clearly not an exercise in latterday Celtic fusion, the concert is bound to strike a chord with many people of many generations, the participants agree. And along with such well-known favourites as My Love Is Like A Red, Red Rose, Kathleen Mavourneen, Comin’ Thru The Rye and Mairi’s Wedding, there will be a few lesser-known historic gems, such as the original melody for Auld Lang Syne (although the group will play the popular New Year’s Eve version as well). “A lot of people will know the music, even if they’re not from Scotland or Ireland – but

so many are,” said Page. As much as there is crossover between Irish, Scottish and English traditions – with each area claiming and making variations on popular time-honoured melodies and lyrics – the vicissitudes of history have given a different tone to each, Page noted. “We’re starting off with this fantastic poem, The Hills In The Highlands,” she said. “Scottish poetry is very atmospheric in its physical descriptions of the landscape – the heather, the moonlight and a rippling stream.” Irish poetry and lyrics, on the other hand, reflect a history of wars, famine and forced migration, Page said. “It tends to be very sad – much more about how people feel about Ireland – about having to leave Ireland and looking back.” History is also part of every gesture of Celtic dance, Lyon said, noting that a lot of the dances began life as an evocation of the

daily work of the people, from hunting and herding cattle to spinning and weaving. But other dances, such as the slow Strathspey, are evocative of the elegant ballroom of special celebrations, she said. “And the Jubilee Quadrille we will be dancing goes back to the old, old style of dance that came from France and was brought over by Mary, Queen of Scots,” Lyon added. Page said singing such historic material seems very natural to her. “I’ve always liked Celtic music, always loved old, original music from the Renaissance and Baroque periods. “The older it is, the more connected I feel with it,” she said. Tickets for the upcoming concert ($12, $7 for children aged 12 and under) are available from Tapestry Music, 1335 Johnston Rd., or by calling 604-538-3843, 604-538-5564.

Beauty is much more than skin deep smile or sunken face is often associated with looking old. It is also commonly the result of missing one or more teeth. Besides their obvious functions in speech and chewing, teeth are essential in holding up the structure of the mouth and lower half of the face. In many cases, loss of teeth will not only diminish that support, but also relate to the loss of surrounding bone. We know that the loss of teeth may lead to a corresponding loss of up to 70% of bone volume in that region within a short time. The resulting net decrease in facial volume may be beyond compensation by any amount of botox or dermal fillers. There is a saying that “the soft tissue may be the issue but the bone sets the tone”. As Oral Implantologists, we reconstruct the jaw by not only replacing the numbers of missing teeth, but also by reconstructing the underlying bone whenever possible. Doing so ensures that the new tooth replacement is in the right position for proper function and

Peninsula athlete Jackie Davidson qualifies for Ironman Hawaii

Team Rogue leads local contingent at Ironman Canada Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

A group of athletes from Peninsula Runners calling themselves Team Rogue led an impressive White Rock and Surrey group at the 2010 Ironman Canada competiton last weekend in Penticton. Nearly 30 athletes who took part in the grueling race were listed as being from Surrey, with a handful more coming from White Rock. Team Rogue was made up of “at least eight” athletes, plus a handful of unofficial members, according to the team’s Gary Loosemore. The top local finisher was Surrey’s Timothy Ferguson, who placed 291st – out of 2,732 who started the race – in a time of 10 hours, 40 minutes, according to preliminary results

that were published earlier this week. The event begins with a 2.4-mile swim, and is followed by a 112-mile bike ride, and then a 26.2-mile marathon. Others to complete the demanding event included Norm Flemington (11:13:11), Steve Addison (11:17:51), Stew Weepers (11:48:09), Team Rogue’s Helena Munro (14:50:30) and Jackie Davidson, the highest-finishing local woman who finished in 11:24:57 – good for eighth place out of 149 in the women’s 45-49 division. Her time was also good enough to qualify for Ironman Hawaii; she was the only competitor from the Peninsula to qualify. “That’s really impressive, to qualify for Kona (Hawaii),” Loosemore said. “She had a great, great race.” Loosemore, who also completed Ironman

Canada in 2004, finished in 11:27:55, which was a shade under his target time. “I’m very happy with how I did,” the longtime South Surrey runner said. “My fitness (level) suggested I should’ve been able to finish the race in about 11-anda-half hours, and I finished right on target, I hit my goal.” Carmen Cameron was the second Surrey woman to cross the finish line, in 11:50:28 – good for 23rd out of 144 in the women’s 40-44-year-old age division. The race was won by Ukraine’s Viktor Zyemtsev, who clocked a time of 8:32:28. The top woman was San Francisco’s Meredith Kessler, who finished in 9:13:46. Of the 2,732 to begin the race, only 2,605 finished. Tracy Holmes photo For full results, visit Team Rogue’s Laurel Van Zanten (right) on  more photos, page 24 the climb towards Yellow Lake.

Ocean Park Massage Therapy Clinic Alison Williams competed in two events, the 300-m and 800m, and scored silver in the latter competition. Despite wet conditions, Meghan Palesch pulled off a big upset in the 200-m hurdles, taking gold against some of the country’s most accomplished young competitors. The national title added to an already impressive summer for Palesch – she won gold in pentathlon at B.C. Summer Games in Langley earlier this summer. In the juvenile division, Jake Bruchet finished just off the podium in the 2,000-m steeplechase, finishing fourth. The race featured two athletes who are ranked in the top-5 worldwide. Vanessa Sjoberg won bronze in the 400-m and also ran the 200-m. Williams, Palesch and Sjoberg also added to their medal totals in the relays, with other members of Team BC. The Canadian championships are notoriously difficult to qualify for, accordiing to Ocean Athletics coach Jim Clifford, as the qualifying standard is set to be equal to the third-place mark of the previous year’s event. “So most of the athletes who qualify are expected to compete for a medal,” he said.

Grandparents Day Brunch

September 12th s 10 am to 1 pm Out to dry

Doug Shanks photo

The pathway outside South Surrey Arena was no doubt a pungent one last month, as hockey gear was set out to dry in the sun, during the Silver Streaks’ annual summer rec league hockey tournament. Right, Ed Gilbert arrives for his game.

Sports groups scoop grant money Last month, the provincial government announced that hundreds of groups across B.C. – including a number on the Semiahmoo Peninsula – were to receive community gaming grants. In total, more than $260,000 was doled out to local groups in order to “encourage active lifestyles and help our youth foster their talents through sports,” a release stated.

Peace Arch Soccer received $50,400, the Crescent Beach Swim Club received $42,000, while the White Rock Divers received $33,500, which will be put toward springboard diving instruction. The White Rock-South Surrey Titans Minor Football Club received $25,300 for its football and cheerleading programs; the Surrey Orcas Water Polo Club – which has numerous Peninsula

members – was given $7,100. Surrey-White Rock Ringette Association was given $18,400; $28,600 was earmarked for the White Rock Amateur Swimming Association; and the Semiahmoo Minor Lacrosse Association received $15,100. The White Rock-South Surrey Skating Club was given $35,000 and the White Rock-Richmond Rockets Speedskating Club was given $1,900.

Foxridge Homes offers new, single-family detached homes in a quiet Cloverdale neighbourhood ›› p.3

September 3, 2010

This year’s PNE Prize Home is designed with entertainment in mind, in a palette of cool blues, rich browns and accent whites. The Fair at the PNE runs till Sept. 6.

Vista’s West offers spacious detached homes.

Vista’s West: new homes in Cloverdale

PNE Prize Home: dream big It’s beautiful inside and out. And someone has to win... TRICIA LESLIE The Fair at the PNE celebrates its 100th anniversary this year. And the 2010 PNE Prize Home has been specially designed with celebration in mind, to honour the historical fair’s big birthday.

“This year, careful attention was paid to ensure the home exudes a luxuriously welcoming atmosphere perfect for celebrating any occasion,” says PNE Prize Home interior co-ordinator Barbara Aylesworth, who is also sponsorship co-ordinator and founder of A Stroke of Genius in North Vancouver. “The ease of entertainment is the overriding theme – from the handsome, wroughtiron gate that separates the wine cellar from the great room to the sense of open spacious-

ness designed to encourage free-flowing conversation.” The craftsman-style home, more than 3,000 square feet, was professionally designed and custom-built by Britco Structures. It will be relocated to the prestigious Kirschner Mountain development in Kelowna, overlooking stunning views of the Okanagan Valley and Okanagan Lake. CONTINUED ON P.30

61 FRESH APARTMENT HOMES STARTING FROM $119,900! Mon-Thurs 1pm-4pm; Sat & Sun Noon to 5pm

Foxridge Homes have a deserved reputation, built over 60 years of building homes with which buyers fall in love. They understand a home is not just bricks and mortar, but a special place that should enhance the homeowners’ lifestyle and realize their dreams. This great attention to detail is most evident in the Vista’s West project in Cloverdale. This collection of beautifully designed single-family homes has stunning valley and mountain views, plus 13 acres of dedicated parks and green space within the subdivision. All Vista’s West homes offer important benefits the homebuyer can’t necessarily see, but are very important for the comfort of each family: R-14 insulation in walls and R-40 in the attic, and a Travelers Guarantee Company of Canada 10-year warranty, which includes two-year builder and fiveyear water penetration coverage. There is also the knowledge a Vista’s West home has been built by a Registered Certified Residential Builder and a company that has been in business for more than 50 years. Every window is Low E, double-glazed vinyl warm-frame, with muntin bars on the front windows for the safety of each homeowner’s family. CONTINUED ON P.31

Prize Home comes with a Kelowna view CONTINUED FROM P.29

Boasting three bedrooms and three bathrooms, the home’s open-living layout also features the fundamentals of high-style, ecoluxe family living with an Old-world library, a media room with a 52-inch flatscreen TV and a gourmet kitchen with a freestanding island. High-quality finishings are standard throughout, and the home comes with a builtin sound system and home electronics feature a surveillance camera and 12-inch monitor. Inside, cool blues, rich browns and white accents create a colour palette that is welcoming and relaxing, in a style that is both modern and chic, yet also traditional and timeless. “My goal was to create a nice, calm, relaxing feeling,” Aylesworth says. The idea, she says, is for the home to be welcoming for living everyday life as well as entertaining. “I really like the open concept ... the main floor has 20-foot-high ceilings in the main room, but remains open to all the other areas of the home, aside from the library. I also love the colours, and how they flow through the entire home.” Ayelsworth also notes the covered outdoor patio – complete with an outdoor heater, hot tub, barbecue and patio furniture (all provided by sponsors) – is perfect for year-round entertaining. Downstairs, the great room is enhanced with an oversized fireplace surround and an incredible crystal chandelier hanging high

This year’s PNE Prize Home boasts three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a great room with 20foot ceilings, a library, a wine cellar, a media room and a master ensuite with a fireplace.

above it all. A charming staircase, reminiscent of those built 100 years ago in Vancouver’s Shaughnessy and Dunbar neighbourhoods, leads guests from the main floor to the Juliet balcony that overlooks the great room. Upstairs, the master bedroom features a sitting area and an ensuite bathroom with a carrera marble tub deck and matching floor tiles, a fireplace and a TV. There is also an espresso coffee-maker and a small bar fridge, making it easy to use the


master suite as a mini-getaway. “You never really have to leave the master suite,” Aylesworth says. “Everything you need is right there.” She also likes the fact the laundry room is on the upstairs level. There are also several eco-friendly, sustainable features that are not only better for the environment, but also mean better energy efficiency and savings for the homeowner. Terasen has provided an award-winning generator system for the house that is able to extract water from the air and transform it into fresh, healthy drinking water. There is also a high-efficiency, quickrecovery gas-fired water heater with unique geoexchange technology, a wide range of Energy Star appliances, siding made from B.C.

pine beetle wood, the lowest VOC Benjamin Moore paint, UV ray protection windows, and low-flow, energy-conserving plumbing fixtures. “Today’s homebuyers expect the best in eco-friendly technologies, so they can rest assured of their low environmental impact and keep energy bills low,” says Aylesworth. The Grand Prize package is worth more than $1.2 million and includes a one-year housecleaning service (MiniMaid), a $2,500 grocery package (Marketplace IGA),and a one-year subscription to a daily newspaper. The Fair at the PNE runs until Sept. 6 and Metro Vancouverites can view the PNE Prize Home on-site. Tickets to the PNE Prize Home lottery are five for $25 or 15 for $50. Visit for details.

‘A wonderfully personalized home’ CONTINUED FROM P.29

A 50-gallon hot water tank comfortably services the whole family’s needs and, for those chilly winter evenings, the efficient natural-gas fireplace in the great room or family room will be welcome. A combination heating system also contributes to home’s comfort and savings with a highly efficient natural gas furnace and zone-controlled baseboard heaters on the upper floor. The kitchen is a dream for the inner chef in the family. Maple cabinets with brushed chrome pulls are complemented by flat-edge laminate countertops with full-height ceramic tile backsplashes. The maple cabinets are repeated in the bathrooms. The master bathroom ensuite comes complete with a one-piece soaker tub and shower, and ceramic tile surrounds. All bathrooms have pressure-balanced valves in the shower heads for the homeowner’s comfort. Each home comes with an extensive options package that allows homebuyers to customize their home further. “We are unique at Foxridge, because we don’t just give our clients a choice of two or three exterior and interior finishes – we have a huge room filled with choices so each home is individual,” says Foxridge Homes sales and marketing manager Diane Zarola. “Clients pick out their exterior colours, interior paint colours and finishes and stain colours in the kitchen and bathrooms. There are experts to advise, but the end result is a wonderfully personalized home.” This subdivision is almost complete, so new buyers will be moving into a family oriented, established community to begin a new chapter in their lives. Homes are priced from $634,500. Visit for details.
