Corroded lamp standards may fall, warns White Rock city staff

Pier visitors at risk of ‘severe injury’ Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Corroded lamp standards and arches along the White Rock Pier are putting pedestrians at risk of “severe personal injury,” warns a report from the city’s director of engineering and municipal operations. According to the report, an aggressive marine environment and vandalism are at the root of the deterioration. “Imminent replacement” is needed, Rob Thompson writes.

“The bases of many of the lamp standards are severely corroded to the point that they may fall in inclement weather or as a result of vandalism,” he writes. “There have been incidents of the lights on the arches shorting out, and there is a possibility of severe personal injury should a pedestrian be in contact with the arches during such an event.” The report – along with a request council authorize a contract budget increase for the work – was to be considered Monday night,

after Peace Arch News’ deadline. Coun. Helen Fathers said prior to the meeting that she was surprised by both the anticipated cost and how dire the situation sounds. “When you read that document, it sounds like the pier is falling to pieces,” Fathers said. She wondered why all councillors weren’t given the opportunity to participate in a recent walk-through of the area, and planned to question the process Monday night. Thompson’s report recommends council

authorize a contract for the work – worth an estimated $414,900 – be awarded following closure today of a Request for Proposals. The report notes a condition assessment – funded in part by a federal grant – identified a need for “relatively minor” repairs to the pier structure, however, a long-term maintenance program must first be developed. To apply remaining grant funds to the lamp standards and arches work, the project must be substantially completed by Oct. 31.

Truck hits overpass

Emergency crews investigate after a dump truck carrying a tandem load of gravel northbound on Highway 99 struck the 152 Street overpass.

A truck travelling on Highway 99 struck the 152 Street overpass Monday afternoon. The tandem gravel truck was northbound on the highway just before 2 p.m. when the vehicle hit, lifting the cab’s front tires off the highway. According to one witness, the truck’s front trailer tipped upwards about a kilometre south of the overpass, spilling gravel onto the highway. The driver reportedly slowed and attempted to right the load – as other vehicles backed off. Passersby questioned why he did not stop to address the problem before impact. There were no injuries – although the driver was seen leaving by ambulance. It was unknown at PAN press time if the overpass suffered structural damage. – Nick Greenizan & Tracy Holmes

Gradual ban unanimously supported by trustees

Bottled water to dry up in Surrey School District Sheila Reynolds Black Press

The flow of bottled water in the Surrey School District may soon be just a trickle. In a unanimous vote Thursday, Surrey’s seven school trustees agreed to discontinue providing bottled water at board meetings, conferences and, where feasible, at other district events. Trustee Laurie Larsen first floated the idea

in June, telling Black Press that regular tap water in Surrey is clean and safe and bottled water is often unnecessary. At Thursday’s public board meeting, she said providing bottled water at district events and in schools sends the message that Surrey does not consider its freely available drinking water “good enough.” She said beverage companies are profiting from bottling already-clean municipal water

and selling it at a 200-4,000 per cent markup. “Water is not a commodity. It is a right,” an impassioned Larsen said. She also refuted the argument that not providing bottled water limited choice, as it’s readily available in almost every corner store and gas station, and she slammed the notion that people will drink more sugary soft drinks if bottled water is not available. “For goodness sake, lack of access to bot-

tled water is not a cause of childhood obesity,” said Larsen. A report has been requested on existing contracts the district has with companies that supply bottled water for school vending machines. Like juice and pop sales, revenue from water sales often helps fund things, such as sports teams, at many schools. Contracts with vendors are to be respected. � see page 4 Honey Lager or Pale Ale

Walk raises money for Somali children Members of StepUp Vancouver, a youthled initiative, left Thursday morning from Crescent Beach, with a goal to make the long cross-country journey – on foot – to Seattle to raise funds for UNICEF Somalia. They expected to reach Seattle by Saturday, Sept. 17. The funds raised during the 49-hour, 198-kilometre walk are to be used by UNICEF to deliver supplementary feeding services to more than a million Somali children on the brink of death due to starvation. In mid-July, the United Nations declared a state of famine in Somalia, following a prolonged drought which left millions at risk of

starvation. “Children should be our highest priority,” said Muna Jimale, a Steveston resident, who is organizing StepUp Vancouver. “We are appealing to organizations, businesses and persons to join this emergency response and sponsor our walk.” The idea for the walk was inspired by the thousands of Somali children, who fight for their lives as they make a long, dangerous journey to refugee camps in Somalia’s capital city, and to neighbouring Kenya and Ethiopia.

Surrey uncertain whether casino sale negates $25 million in promised upgrades

Boardwalk supporter regrets backing bid Kevin Diakiw Black Press

She waited in Surrey council chambers until 1 a.m. to speak in favour of a casino in Newton. It wasn’t an easy undertaking for Pat Cecchetto, who had undergone recent surgery to her right knee, which was throbbing by the end of the night. But she stayed despite the pain because she thought the issue was important. As a former employee in the not-for-profit sector (which relies on gaming revenues) and a community advocate, Cecchetto thought the Boardwalk Gaming plan for $25 million in improvements to the run-down Newton Mall was a great idea. Council awarded the rezoning for the property, allowing 150 slot machines. Two years later, the property still remains in a state of disrepair.

Evan Seal photo

Slot machines were approved in 2009.

Peace Arch News first reported last week that Boardwalk has sold the mall to Gateway Casino and Entertainment Ltd. With that sale went Boardwalk’s promise of significant improvements to the 7093 King George Blvd. property, work that included a new community policing office. Surrey city manager Murray Dinwoodie said that while Gateway isn’t beholden to ful-

Calls to Gateway were not returned of this,” Cecchetto said. Surrey council only found out Sept. 12 by Peace Arch News press time Monday. Speculation at the mall is that development that the property has switched hands, and at least one councillor said she’s not very happy plans are underway, but the company is just about it. waiting for approvals from the city. As of last week, staff in Surrey’s planning “I am very annoyed and frustrated,” said Linda Hepner, who supported the project two and development department said there years ago when it passed on a 5-4 vote. “I put were no development permits in stream for a lot of faith in what Boardwalk was telling us. that property.

Window warning

13-month-old survives fall

Boaz Joseph photo

A child is is taken from his home to a waiting air ambulance in Newton, after he fell through a window screen to pavement three metres below.

A 13-month-old boy is in serious, but stable condition after falling three metres from a window onto the pavement Sunday afternoon. The boy’s 16-year-old sister was holding the tot on a ledge by a window that was open, but had a screen covering it. The young one struggled free and fell backward through the second-floor window of the home and onto the pavement in the 7200-block of 131 Street. He suffered a fractured skull and broken leg. He was taken by air ambulance from Princess Margaret Secondary to hospital. Police say the boy is in serious condition, but is expected to make a full recovery. Surrey RCMP Cpl. Drew Grainger said the incident is a reminder for people not to rely on screen windows as any kind of safe barrier to keep children from falling through. Surrey has experienced three such falls this year, with eight in the Lower Mainland – including a fatality in New Westminster after a child fell eight storeys in June. “Be mindful, that screen, it’s a false illusion of security,” Grainger said. “There’s nothing to stop anyone from going through those things, especially young children.” – Kevin Diakiw

Presidential guest cancels Toronto appearance, still on for Surrey

Mayor undeterred by criticism of guest speaker Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Opponents of George W. Bush’s visit to Surrey next month are encouraged after the former U.S. president cancelled a Toronto engagement amid controversy. Bush had been scheduled to appear at a breakfast hosted by Tyndale University College and Seminary next Tuesday, but backed out as students from the George W. Bush school protested Bush’s track record. A Surrey-bound note on the university’s website said the

former president had cancelled due to a “scheduling change.” Saskatoon blogger Sandra Finley is applauding the Toronto students for speaking up, and she’s lobbying Surrey council to cancel Bush’s appearance Oct. 20 at the annual Surrey Regional Economic Summit. Bush is scheduled to speak at the event at the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel, along with fellow former U.S. president Bill Clinton and other guests.

Finley noted there’s a civic election this year and voters should let their opinions be known at the polls. “I started phoning Surrey city councillors… the conversation with Councillor Bob Bose was great,” Finley wrote on her website www.sandrafinley.ca Mayor Dianne Watts said Friday there’s no plans to withdraw Bush from the Surrey Regional Economic Summit. “This is not a political event. It’s up to him whether he chooses to come or not,”

Watts said, noting council also received critical emails regarding former British prime minister Tony Blair’s arrival at the economic summit two years ago. “If we only spoke to people that we liked and that we agreed with, we would never learn anything,” Watts said. The mayor noted Bush and Clinton will appear on stage together for a relatively short period. “They are a piece of the summit, they are not the entire summit,” she said.

Trustee hopes Surrey follows suit � from page 1 As well, the status of water fountains in Surrey schools will be checked to ensure things like sufficient water pressure and safe, non-lead pipes are in place. Educational material promoting the benefits of tap water over bottled will also be made available district-wide and municipal water will be promoted as the preferred alternate to single-use water bottles. Trustee Reni Masi supported bottled water use being discontinued, but said gradual implementation would be key rather than an outright ban. Trustee Shawn Wilson commended Larsen for presenting a well-thought-out motion. “In the past, our board has shown leadership in environmental concerns,” he said, pointing to Surrey’s ban of pesticides on school grounds. Trustee Terry Allen pointed to the many presentations the board has heard over the years from student groups engaged in various sustainability, recycling

and waste management programs and initiatives. “I think this motion goes a long way to supporting those students,” said Allen. At least one company was hoping the district would either reject or defer its decision. John B. Challinor II, director of corporate affairs at Nestle Waters, wrote the district on Thursday in an attempt to sway board members and rebut some of Larsen’s reasoning. He argued the carbon footprint of bottled water is the smallest of any bottled beverage and that water bottles make up a negligible percentage of the plastic headed to landfills. Challinor also said statistics show Canadians drink both tap water and bottled – one at home and the other away from home. “Bottled water competes with other bottled beverages. It is not an alternative to tap water,” he wrote. Challinor’s letter, however, apparently held no water with trustees as they chose to proceed

with the bottled-water ban. Larsen said moves such as discouraging use of disposable water bottles, while not without controversy, go a long way to bettering the environment and may take time for people to embrace. Recycling, she noted, still isn’t something everybody does, but is increasingly becoming commonplace. “For a long time, nobody cared. It’s a slow shift,” she said. Larsen, who is also the head of Canadian Union of Public Employees, local 402, which represents Surrey’s municipal workers, is hoping the City of Surrey will follow suit and implement a ban on bottled water. She presented a declaration to city council Monday asking that city use of bottled water be phased out and that where possible, drinking fountains be installed at new or refurbished buildings, as well as in parks and other public places. “If we can do it for this generation, just imagine how fantastic it will be for the next generation,” Larsen said.

Senior’s booze business busted

A Surrey senior has been arrested for allegedly selling moonshine out of his basement window. A 65-year-old man in the 12500-block of 70 Avenue was taken into custody after police found five barrels containing about 200 gallons of home-made booze in his home. He had allegedly been brewing it in a trailer in the back of the house. A search of the home found another 30 containers of distilled spirits, police say. Police believe the man was selling the liquor through the basement window of his home to walk-up customers. A member of the community reported it to police, prompting the surveillance and the search of the property. The man is facing charges including: production and packaging of spirits, possessing a still, sale of alcohol and possession of bulk alcohol. The City of Surrey bylaw department is also “actively engaged” in the investigation, addressing bylaw infractions. Other charges are also being considered. – Kevin Diakiw

Err on side of caution with concussions

W

ith the start of football and soccer seasons, and the hockey season imminent, there is renewed attention to concussions. Sidney Crosby, arguably the best player in the National Hockey League, has still not fully recovered from a concussion sustained in January. He’s likely to miss the beginning of this season after already missing the second half of last season plus the playoffs. He’s just the latest, and most prominent, hockey player to be sidelined by concussion. Marc Savard of the Boston Bruins will miss all of the coming season because of postconcussion syndrome. Players like Eric and Brett Lindros, Paul Kariya, Adam Deadmarsh and Pat Lafontaine have all had their careers cut short because of blows to the head. A recent study of professional football players showed their average life expectancy is 52, largely due to the effects of head injuries from their playing days. While pro athletes get the attention, it’s unknown how extensive the problem of concussions is in the amateur, community and weekend warrior ranks. It’s quite apparent the days of dismissing a blow to an athlete’s head as “getting their bell rung,” waving smelling salts under their nose and sending them out for their next shift are over. Trainers, team doctors and sports leagues are now inclined to err on the side of caution when it comes to head injuries. Last year, Football BC enacted a new concussion policy that requires volunteer coaches to stay current with resource material the organization distributes about concussions and they must remove from play any player suspected to have sustained a head injury until they have written clearance from a doctor. Other organizations, if they have not already, would be wise to follow suit. But while education and caution helps prevent aggravating existing head injuries, it does little to prevent them in the first place. For that coaches and players need to be trained not to use the head as a weapon or a target, and equipment manufacturers have to develop pads and helmets that protect athletes, not turn them into human missiles.

The website, canttrustcummins. ca, uses a bug-eyed photo of the former fisherman-MP that makes him look like a ray gun-wielding alien from the movie Mars Attacks. In fact, our whole political scene is starting to look like a rerun of a bad 1990s movie. It was Reform BC that rose from the ashes of Social Credit, and inspired a desperate Gordon Campbell to sing country music and take a hard line on aboriginal relations, to stitch the ruptured right back together. Cummins defined himself as a ReformAlliance-Conservative MP by railing against treaties, and that continues to be the core of his thin policy book. His other main ideas are also pure rural populism. He vows to scrap the carbon tax and suggests that municipalities should cut costs to fund transit. Voters will have a better idea by the end of this week if Clark’s plan for “defending and creating jobs” is really new policy, or merely more photo ops. B.C. has had its first taste of California-style tax revolt. Now we have two years ahead that will be dominated by relentlessly negative, continuous campaigning.

Leaders should get by on less Editor: Re: Ex-manager knocks job’s new wages, Sept. 13. I, too, am in shock concerning a salary of $200,000 per year. How can anyone spend $17,000 per month? (Editor’s note: White Rock city manager Peggy Clark’s remuneration for 2010 was $194,535, including car allowance, expenses, unused vacation, banked time, benefits and salary.) May I remind you that we senior citizens who fought for and helped build Canada are eking out an existence with $1,500 per month. May I also ask you to consider that a small town in Nova Scotia recently went broke. There is no money for anyone there working for local government, except for the firehall. If our leaders cannot lead us by taking less – and setting an example – then we are all doomed. Greece is bankrupt, now maybe Italy. The monetary system is in danger of collapsing, and if this happens, you better order your bars and steel shutters, because people will be looking for food to eat. Thomas Mackay, White Rock

A third option for Peninsula Editor: I was most interested to read, on returning from my vacation, the exchange regarding the possibility of White Rock absorbing South Surrey, or vice versa. Interested, because I and a number of others have been quietly discussing this possibility for the last year or so. There are, of course, many issues, not the least of which is, would the provincial government support such a realignment of municipal boundaries? Many of the issues raised, however, are red herrings – the effectiveness of existing council, etc. My own approach to this issue is to look at the fundamental demographics of the situation. The City of Surrey is considered by many to be much too large and diverse to well represent the needs and aspirations of South Surrey residents and businesses. At the same time, White Rock is seen by many as too small and poorly managed to be viable on its own. What most businesses and organizations have concluded is that it is the Semiahmoo Peninsula that forms a natural and viable community. Many businesses operate on a Peninsula-wide basis and take advantage of the cachet of the White Rock name to differentiate their Peninsula-based operations from the rest of Surrey. Similarly, arts and charitable organizations, who often need support from their local municipality, are required to juggle the requirements of two cities,

even though the serve one natural community – the Peninsula. I doubt very many people would seriously suggest that White Rock absorb South Surrey. However, the proper alternative is not that Surrey absorb White Rock. Rather, it is that we create a new municipality that encompasses White Rock and South Surrey i.e. the Semiahmoo Peninsula and its environs. This would indeed be a nicely sized and “natural” municipal entity. Clearly, the City of Surrey would have great problems with this, as might some elements in White Rock. If it were possible to conduct a referendum of the residents and businesses of the affected areas it is quite likely, in my opinion, that they would wish to see the creation of a city on the Peninsula, whatever it came to be named. Clearly, this will take huge effort on the part of our citizens and businesses and the involvement and support of the provincial government. I hope we will consider this in the months and years ahead. Geoff Giffin, White Rock

Tell them, and they will come Editor: I recently moved back to White Rock and was looking forward to seeing the finished Miramar complex at Thrift Avenue and Johnston Road. What I found was more for-rent signs in empty windows, while in

South Surrey a building spree on 24 Avenue is advertising a new “concept” of sidewalk shopping. Many of these new stores were formerly in White Rock, which already has sidewalk shopping. We need more people and finished buildings to house them. A truth of nature is that nothing stands still. It’s either moving up or moving down. Let’s get moving up. Transportation is not a problem with the new bus/SkyTrain system. We have a beautiful sea-wall and the sun shines more often. Why isn’t city hall advertising to lure more people to our city? Lots of people – young people and families – if they like to live in Downtown Vancouver skyscrapers and North and West Vancouver skyscrapers, they will love White Rock as much and maybe more. Sharon Rossnagel, White Rock

Come-hither no more Editor: I am a senior male living in a seniors residence. Walking down a hall the other day, following one of our female staff members, I thought I could attempt one of those flirtatious but innocent come-hither whistles. Got no response. Tried it again, with no response. Suddenly it came to me, I had lost my whistle. This is not at all like misplacing your keys. This is much more important. It is the loss of an

integral part of the male being, the opening to the best pickup line. The importance of this carries over to the boudoir. “Hank, how come you never whistle at me anymore?” “Mert, you need new batteries in your hearing aids.” Is there a girl anywhere who does not appreciate the flirt of a whistle directed at her? I think not. I have lost my whistle and it can not be replaced. I have checked the web, and no suitable replacement. Policemen and coaches all have theirs, but no, not us seniors. Again, we seniors are relegated to the back of the line when looking for government assistance in this important matter. Walter Frewen, Surrey

A Saturday evening visit to Peace Arch Hospital didn’t deliver what was expected by a South Surrey couple.

File photo

We’d anticipated a very long wait Editor: My husband has chronic asthma – more specifically Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). He had been labouring with shortness of breath for too long. On a recent Saturday night, I drove him to Peace Arch Hospital at 8:45 p.m. He was reluctant to go, as he thought that he would be sitting in the waiting room for a long period of time. I told him if that is the situation that I would take him to another hospital. We went to the registration area. No one else was there. They asked the questions, I gave the answers. I completed the information that was requested and when I turned around my husband wasn’t there. A nurse advised me to go to Room 3, and I did. There was my husband changing into the hospital nightie.

Within seconds, a nurse was taking blood, another was injecting something to slow his heart rate down, and a third was placing an oxygen mask over his nose. I could not believe how wonderful the medical attention was and so quickly expedited. I could see the tension on my husband’s face diminish. A doctor came in and asked him some questions. A portable X-ray machine was brought in and an X-ray of his chest was taken. A prescription was given and we were on our way home two hours later. I was so thankful that my husband received the care he did, as well as the professionalism of the medical staff. They were so pleasant and caring. We cannot thank them enough. Trudy Dollman, Surrey

Prohibited throwing stars among items confiscated last month

Border seizures net guns, drugs A man travelling with a loaded handgun in the bathroom of his trailer and two Alberta residents trying to smuggle prohibited throwing stars into Canada were among several people fined or arrested at local borders last month. Canada Border Services Agency spokesperson Erin Steeksma said the incidents were part of what made for “a very busy month” in the Pacific Highway District, which includes the Boundary Bay, Douglas (Peace Arch), Pacific Highway, Aldergrove and AbbotsfordHuntingdon ports. The bathroom gun was found Aug. 28, during examination of a northbound trailer at the Douglas border. The gun was seized, and a U.S. resident was arrested, fined $1,000 and refused admission to Canada in connection with the discovery. Three “bat-style” throwing stars – also called Shurikens – were found Aug. 10 in the glove compartment of a northbound vehicle at the Douglas crossing. The weapons, which are prohibited in Canada, were seized, and an Alberta resident was fined $500 for failing to declare the goods. Aug. 2, a man travelling with his young son was arrested and fined $1,000 after a handgun loaded to capacity was found

‘Bat-style’ throwing stars were among weapons seized at the Douglas border.

within arms’ reach of both males. Steeksma said 55 drug seizures in the district last month resulted in more than 800 grams of marijuana and four grams of hashish being confiscated from 43 travellers. At the Pacific Highway border, 514 steroid pills were seized from a Missouri resident; another 129 pills that require permits under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act were seized in five separate incidents at the Douglas crossing. In addition to drugs and weapons, border officers seized thousands of dollars worth of undeclared, high-value commodities in August.

Aug. 9, suspicions were raised after a northbound U.S. resident claimed that paintings and sculptures headed across the border to decorate a vacation home in Canada were only worth about $1,300. Discrepancies between the traveller’s statements and documentation led the guards to discover the artwork was actually worth more than $220,000, and that it was being imported for resale, Steeksma said. The art was seized and the traveller, who was denied entry to Canada, must pay penalties of more than $90,000 to get the pieces back. Other penalties issued included: • $1,800, for improperly declaring nearly $8,000 in video equipment used to analyze athletic performance, Pacific Highway, Aug. 9; • $8,500, for failing to declare new vehicle tires and modifications, Pacific Highway, Aug. 19; and, • $2,600, for failing to declare two watches worth a combined value of $8,600, Douglas, Aug. 30. Two other travellers, including one Surrey resident, had thousands of dollars in cash seized and were fined, after failing to report $25,000 and $16,000, respectively, in cash to officers at the Douglas border. - Tracy Holmes

Provincial chamber leader speaks at local luncheon

Business must challenge government policy: CEO Alex Browne Staff Reporter

The business community has got to do a better job of selling itself as a vital contributor to B.C.’s economic health and stability – and has a responsibility to advocate to government for sound fiscal policies in the wake of B.C.’s rejection of the HST. That was the message delivered to members of the South Surrey and White Rock Chamber of Commerce by B.C. Chamber of Commerce CEO John Winter at a lunch meeting Wednesday. Winter, who repeatedly emphasized the potential political clout of chamber organizations locally and on the provincial level – the B.C. Chamber represents some 32,000 businesses province-wide, he noted – said it is all the more important to speak with a strong, unified voice in the current political climate. Business has the power to affect policy decisions which could ultimately steer the province back toward a more competitive tax structure, and a more diverse and sustainable economy, he said. The referendum decision to dump the HST and go back to the GST/PST tax structure, he added, made it “clear to us all that B.C. has returned to its historic level of craziness politically – with (former Socred premier) Bill Vander Zalm reinventing himself as an opponent of taxes, when he is the one who introduced the property transfer tax.� Winter, whose past business background includes many years as a senior executive with Molson Breweries, added that while many had thought the “politics of division� was a thing of the past, the recent HST debate had seen the return of “language that creates terror and conflict.� “The HST lost because business was seen by many as the bad guy,� he said. “And for too long the business community has been its own worst

B.C. Chamber CEO John Winter addresses crowd. enemy in this process.� It’s a myth, Winter said, that the introduction of the HST represented big business versus small business. “Big business will not only employ people, but it will give out contracts, and those,

in turn, will support the little businesses,� he said, adding that people “lost sight of the connectivity during the HST debate.� “We need to remove the politics and get to providing facts to the public so that they

can make informed decisions,� he said. “We should challenge the government and the opposition parties to discuss their economic plans and policies.� Following the meeting, Winter told Peace Arch News he has no doubt the province will face a tough transitional period for the at least a year, before the old GST/PST structure is reinstated. “There are going to be a lot of ‘told you sos,’� he said, citing forecasts that predict the B.C. will slow down from a 2.2 per cent growth rate to 1.2 per cent, or “practically a standstill.� But he said he believes the will exists in the business community to push government for tax reform once the HST has been dismantled. “I think this will happen the moment we get back to the old taxes,� he said.

Missing woman sought Surrey Mounties are requesting public assistance in finding a 22-year-old woman who went missing this month. On Sept. 8, the family of Samantha Rachel Lange reported her missing. They hadn’t seen her in five days. Her family and Surrey RCMP are concerned for her welfare, given that Lange has mental health issues and is not taking her medication. It’s believed she may have been planning to go downtown or to Victoria. She may be in the company of Darrel James Gordon, who has ties to the Surrey and Victoria areas. Lange is described as a Caucasian female, 5’8”, 110 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

A woman arrested last spring following a fourmonth crime spree has been sentenced to four years in jail. Twenty-year-old Stephanie Rene Deschene – identified by police earlier this year as one of their top 10 most wanted car thieves – learned her penalty last week in Surrey Provincial Court.

Deschene was arrested in a stolen vehicle May 24 by members of the Integrated Municipal Provincial Auto Crime Team (IMPACT). She later pleaded guilty to 13 charges in connection with multiple offences in Surrey, Langley, Kelowna, Merritt, Kamloops and Sicamous between January and May of this year.

efore he became a police officer walking the beat on Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, Const. Steve Addison thought he knew just how tough a place the neighbourhood was. But it wasn’t until he actually began working there in 2007 – a year after leaving a successful journalism career with Peace Arch News – that the then-rookie constable with the Vancouver Police Department truly got a sense for the place, fraught as it is with drug addiction, crime and violence. Now, Addison is hoping to bring some of his experiences to the public in the form of a new blog, Eastside Stories, which he started ❝You think this month on the VPD you know, but website. you don’t ... “The blog is an idea that unless you’re had been floating around down here.❞ in my head for a while, since I started really,” said Steve Addison Addison, who works on VPD constable the Downtown Eastside’s Beat Enforcement Team. “I’m probably never going to work in a place like this ever again – it’s one of the most unique policing environments in North America. “There’s a million other things to do in the police department, and if I’m never going to work in a place like this again, I figured I should document it, at least for myself, if nothing else.” Last spring, Addison finally broached the idea of writing a blog with his bosses, who were intrigued, and approved it. “When I left the Peace Arch News, everyone kept saying, ‘you should write about what it’s like being a cop.’ But I didn’t feel it was appropriate to do it right away. “There’s a pretty steep learning curve when you become a cop, and even more so when you’re a rookie on the Downtown Eastside, and I don’t think anyone wants to read what a guy two weeks out of the police academy thinks.”

But now that he’s been walking the beat for a few years, Addison has a pretty good grasp on the area and its people. And the reality is, it’s far worse than what you might see on TV. “Speaking from my own experience, you think you know, but you don’t. You don’t get a good enough idea of the people and what it’s like unless you’re down here… you walk around, you smell it, you experience it firsthand,’ he said. In his blog, Addison writes about alleys smelling of urine and human feces, addicts ravaged by drug addiction and mental illness, and small rooming houses infested with rats and bugs. “I see the worst moments of humanity and have a front row seat to people at their lowest,” he writes in one entry. Even in the first few posts on Eastside Stories, it’s evident that Addison and his VDP colleagues go to great lengths to form relationships with many of the area’s residents – helping them when they can, being compassionate when the situation calls for it, all while protecting the public and upholding the law. “There are so many drug dealers and so many addicts, and there’s not enough (police officers) to arrest them all, so we do use some discretion,” he said. “That’s not to say we’re easy on people – there are people here who need to be arrested, and we arrest them. “You just try not to make it personal. There are people getting in trouble who we deal with all the time – we know who the frequent fliers are – but they understand we have a job to do, and sometimes I’m going to have to put the handcuffs on them. “But if you treat people with respect, you’ll get respect back.” The challenge for Addison, he said, will be to keep the blog updated enough to keep

Images of homelessness and addiction on the Downtown Eastside are a familiar sight for Const. Steve Addison (left), who has started blogging about policing the neighbourhood. readers coming back. “I’m not much of a diary keeper, but if you have an audience, you want to do as good a job as you can. The blogs that I always return to are the ones that are updated regularly,” he said. “When you create something like this, you’ve got to feed the beast.” What Addison says the blog won’t become is his own soapbox, where he’ll voice personal opinions on subjects surrounding the Downtown Eastside – like safe-injection site, Insite, for example – simply to stir up

debate. “Debate is great, because it effects change, but I don’t think I have to be controversial. This place is controversial enough, so just mentioning the word ‘Insite’ will get people talking without me having to say anything else,” he said. “I don’t have to be the guy who stokes the fire. Instead, I’ll chop the kindling, I’ll crumple up the newspapers and I’ll leave the matches on the table for someone else.” Addison’s blog, Eastside Stories, can be found at www.beatcopdiary.vpd.ca

Fraser Health partners up with Steve Nash clubs

Gym helps patients get fit for OR Jeff Nagel Black Press

Fraser Health patients waiting for surgery are being offered free workouts through a partnership with a chain of fitness gyms. Patients referred by their surgeon now get five weeks free access to Steve Nash Fitness World and two one-hour sessions with a private trainer. The idea is patients who get fit before they go under the knife tend to get out of hospital faster with fewer complications and ultimately cost the health-care system less money. “They tend to mobilize faster, recover faster after surgery and have lower incidence of complications like pneumonia,

clots in their leg or other wound complications,” Dr. Peter Blair, the health authority’s program medical director for surgery, said last month. Blair said pre-op fitness is particularly important for abdominal surgery, joint replacements and major chest surgery. But doctors’ advice is often ignored. “For 30 years I’ve been asking people to lose weight before surgery without very much success,” he said. Blair hopes the gym access inspires patients to do better. There’s no cost to Fraser Health – yet. Blair said he approached the Steve Nash clubs, which volunteered to donate access for a six-month pilot project.

After that, the health authority will reassess whether to negotiate a permanent, possibly paid arrangement with the chain. “If it turned out we were able to show a big net savings in terms of money saved by virtue of improved outcomes, it could be a good business case to go ahead and pay for the program,” Blair said. Meanwhile, the company gets publicity and a chance to impress potential future customers. Eight of the Steve Nash chain’s 17 Lower Mainland locations are in the Fraser Health region, including a South Surrey location at Morgan Crossing. Blair said Fraser Health could potentially partner with different gyms if the pilot project is a success.

Top honour The Rotary Club of White Rock – with a little help from Jimmy Flynn’s – has the top chili in town.

The chili title was captured by the club, dubbed the Celtic Warriors for the event, at a chili cookoff held as part of the White Rock Business Improvement Association’s Uptown Block Party. The event was held Sept. 10 in uptown White Rock, from the Whaling Wall to Central Plaza. The rotary club was aided in their chili championship quest by Jimmy Flynn’s chef Richard

Eley, who prepared an Irish chili for the competition.

Home & Garden – PART I

Time to refresh your home decor

A

s the shades of summer start to change into the rich colours of autumn, many homeowners turn their attention from the outdoors to what’s inside their homes. The start of a new school year, the change of weather and an upcoming season of holiday entertaining mark the perfect time to revamp your home’s decor. While some may opt for a complete overhaul on their home’s interior, for others, a large-scale renovation isn’t viable financially or logistically. Luckily, there are plenty of simple ways to change up your decor this fall and give your home a fresh, stylish new look. First and foremost, take a look at your walls. Though painting is a chore few people enjoy, a fresh coat in a new, creative colour can make any room seem brand new. The major decorating trend in 2011 is to opt for bright colours and lots of creativity. Tired old colour combinations, such as forest green and burgundy, are being traded in for blends never before seen, such as lime green and turquoise. The idea is to show no hesitation in mixing styles and textures, although neutral colours are still the recommended standbys as a background for trendy colour accents. If you’re hesitant to go all out with a bold new shade, painting just one wall in a room in a fashionable colour is enough to add life to a neutral decor and is a stylish way to dress up a space. Once wall colours are sorted, another great way to revamp a room’s decor is by changing up the artwork, something HouseWarmings owner Briar Codesmith said “provides a fresh new change of perspective from room to room.” New at Codesmith’s Elgin Corners boutique is the work of local abstract expressionist artist Dolores Johnstone. In addition to the bright, eye-catching pieces found in store, Dolores can also paint custom pieces using particular colour schemes. � see page 19

Not quite time to hang up gardening gloves T

he official start of fall is just mere days away, and soon the lawns will be scattered with leaves and there will be frost on the pumpkin. But that doesn’t mean it’s time to stow away the garden tools until spring – there is still plenty of work to be done to ensure your yard and garden will thrive next year. A good place to start is the allimportant lawn. An important step in assuring a lush lawn that will survive the fall and winter is to fertilize before the first heavy freeze, but be sure to use a winterspecific fertilizer. Applying a pre-emergent herbicide can also prevent winter weeds from germinating – corn gluten meal works as a good organic pre-emergent and can be found at most local garden centres and nurseries. If you have a lot of leaves on your lawn, instead of raking or blowing them, mulch them with your lawn mower – not only will it save you work, but it can help improve your soil and add nutrients. Once your lawn is set for the fall and winter, you’ll want to turn your attention to your shrubs and trees. Autumn pruning is a great way to keep your shrubs and trees strong and healthy during the harsh winter months. The main goal of pruning is to add strength and vitality to shrubs, which will add fullness and allow shrubs to retain their shape and dimensions for many years to come.

Fall is a great time to prune back bushes and trees to prevent winter damage. Making sure you have high-quality, sharp tools is an essential first step for pruning, as cheap pruners can cause more damage than good. Always remember to disinfect your tools between tasks – local garden centres will have what you need – as unsanitized tools can cause infection. Fall is also a great time to remove dead, diseased or damaged limbs or � see page 20

What’s hot in countertops Experts on the subject will tell you that trends in the kitchen counter industry have evolved significantly in recent years. Formica and other laminate surfacing products are making way for elegant quarried rock, which brings durability and up-to-date style. Quartz is the material preferred by a majority of homeowners because of its similarity to granite. But where granite can be permanently stained by oils and cooking fat, quartz is quite resistant. Counters made with tiles composed of glass, ceramic, porcelain, or natural stone, such as

Marble countertops in the kitchen add a touch of style. slate, are also popular. Tiles allow you to really personalize your kitchen, thanks to the huge range of textures, colours, and patterns available on the market. For those with ample budgets, a section of marble in a kitchen counter layout represents

sheer luxury. Even though this material is ideal for rolling pastry, marble is relatively vulnerable to stains, shocks, and scratches. Stainless steel counters are long-lasting, hygienic, and are resistant to heat and rust. They can also be an environmentally friendly choice, as some counters are manufactured from recycled steel. Always available, of course, are the less expensive high-pressure laminate counters. They are resistant to stains, shocks, and heat but are vulnerable to scratching and humidity.

New artwork makes big impact � from page 17 When it comes to picking out art, Codesmith said it’s most important to find something that appeals to you and your personality. “Buy what you love – something that speaks to you,” she said. “Don’t worry about it matching what you already have. You can easily create that flow by bringing in toss pillows or fresh flowers.” Equally as important as the artwork itself is how it’s hung in a room. Codesmith advises that pieces be hung at face height, perhaps lower in a dining room where people will be seated.

Plant now for spring blooms � from page 18 branches, which can help prevent winter damage to the rest of the tree. When pruning, always be sure to use proper pruning cuts, above a branch collar, bud or branch ‘V,’ leaving no stubs. Never cut flush with the trunk, as wound wood will not form properly, thus allowing an access point for rot. Because some plants need to be pruned at specific times in order to bloom properly next season, check with a reference manual for pruning times. Finally, though there’s not much blooming going on this time of year, it’s the perfect time to plan ahead for those delightful spring flowers such as crocuses, daffodils and tulips. When planting fall bulbs, you’ll want to take into account the spring sun, which at that time won’t be obscured by the leaves of your trees. Also consider the proximity of the bulbs you’re planting to the house or other buildings – you’ll want to plant the bulbs at least five feet from foundations, as heat

If you want to get a head start on having a lush, healthy lawn next spring, take some important steps this fall. from the buildings can damage the bulbs. Also, make sure the soil is welldrained. The best time to plant is after the first frost, so the bulbs will stay nice and cool throughout the fall and winter. Local nurseries have a plethora of fall bulbs to choose from, and knowledgeable staff can help provide tips on how to plant them properly to ensure they’ll bloom to their full potential come springtime.

Autumn is a great time of year to be out in the garden getting work done. Cooler weather means you won’t overheat while working, and you can spend time planning ahead for the following year’s spring and summer. By taking the time to prep your lawn, prune your shrubs and bushes and plant an array of fall bulbs, by the time spring rolls around you’ll already be well on your way to another enjoyable gardening season.

On a quest for colour A

s the weather cools off and we begin to spend more time indoors, you may notice that the paint on your walls could use a little freshening up. While sticking with a familiar colour scheme is a safe bet, perhaps it’s time to shake things up a little, by introducing something new to your home.But with the decision to switch up the colours on your walls comes the problem of deciding upon a style and scheme to go with. Because some colour trends may only last a season or two, being careful when selecting colours will help ensure that your home doesn’t look outdated after only a year or so. Over the last few years, neutral colours have been popular for interiors, especially browns, beiges, and lighter tones of grey. These days, however, more colourful shades are moving in, such as dark reds, various shades of blues and greens, as well as rich earth tones, including gold and clay. Sunny yellows are also making a noticeable splash.

www.peacearchnews.com 23

Changing up your home’s colour scheme can have a big impact, but deciding upon what will work can be tricky. If you’re unsure about what might work in your home, don’t fret – help is close at hand! Colour experts Kim and Julie, of Peninsula Paint and Design and Hillcrest Decorating, can lend an expert eye and offer advice as to what colours will give your home the stylish makeover you’re looking for. Taking into consideration a room’s furniture, lighting and additional renovations as well as a homeowner’s personality and colour likes and dislikes, Kim and Julie provide helpful suggestions that will suit the homeowner’s taste,

bringing a cohesive flow into their home. “Sometimes people get sort of hung up on having the same colour scheme throughout their home,� Kim explains. “So it really helps having a different eye to take a look at their house, while still envisioning living there.� Above all, before you throw on the painter’s pants and start rolling brushes, be sure to do your research – decor magazines are a great place to find looks you like, and local paint and design stores will be happy to help you get the results you’ll be happy with for years to come.

Details of increase to be determined: officials

Saturday, Sept. 24, 1-4 pm

TransLink eyes big fare hike Jeff Nagel Black Press

Regular transit riders better brace for a big jump in fares in the spring of 2013. TransLink intends to seek approval next year for an average fare increase of 12.5 per cent. TransLink’s Moving Forward financial plan shows base fares are to remain frozen while monthly pass prices would jump 24 per cent in 2013. But TransLink spokesman Ken Hardie said the exact increases in each category are yet to be determined. Cash fares may go up that year, he said, and numbers in the plan showing a three-zone pass, for example, rising from $151 to $187.20, may end up less than shown. “It won’t likely all go on the passholders,” he said. “How that fare revenue is actually going to be generated will be the subject of consultations next year.” He said the numbers were included for accounting purposes only to demonstrate the revenue TransLink needs to raise in future years. Another big factor in the future of transit fares is that TransLink’s Compass smart

Boarding the bus may become more expensive again in 2013. cards arrive in 2013. “We’re going through a fare review right now to see how the fare structure will eventually roll out,” Hardie said. The Compass card will initially be designed to mirror the existing fare structure – including the current three zones – to ensure all systems are working correctly. Later, Hardie said, TransLink will redesign its fares “in a way that distributes the costs differently than they are right now.” Potential options include the elimination of fare zones in favour of charging more accu-

rately by distance or time travelled. TransLink Commissioner Martin Crilly, whose office vets fare increases, said it’s too early to say whether he will approve a major fare hike for 2013. “It’s a substantial increase,” he told Metro Vancouver mayors Thursday, noting 12.5 per cent is far above inflation. “We will want to satisfy ourselves the increase is justified and can’t be deferred and not reduced in amount.” More modest fare increases for inflation are also scheduled for 2016 and 2019. Some mayors questioned

NEW

whether the 2013 hike is too much given the region has high fares already relative to some other transit systems. TransLink estimates the 12.5 per cent fare hike in 2013 will only result in a loss of two per cent of revenue from riders refusing to pay that much more, leaving a net fare revenue gain of at least 10 per cent. TransLink projections show its fare revenue would climb from $421 million now to $517 million in 2013, in part through further gains in ridership. Crilly was giving the region’s Mayors Council on Transportation his analysis of TransLink’s proposed plans to raise revenue for future expansion. One big cost-driver Crilly flagged was TransLink’s plan to replace buses with more expensive diesel-electric hybrid models. But he found overall the plans are “not unreasonable” and would leave TransLink financially sustainable. He noted the transportation authority has a history of failing to actually spend all the capital money it promises to after new revenue increases are granted.

Police test aerial drone Jeff Nagel Black Press

RCMP are testing an aerial drone that can hover over crash sites and crime scenes to take photos or beam video back to officers on the ground. The remote-controlled unmanned aerial vehicle should help crash analysts get better, faster images to reconstruct what happened. RCMP Insp. Norm Gaumont, head of traffic services in the Lower Mainland, said it will allow police to reopen roads to traffic faster after crashes than when a helicopter has to be called in. “Sometimes we absolutely need an aerial shot of the scene and we keep the road shut down longer than we need to,” Gaumont said. “This fits in a suitcase and we can have it flying in minutes.” The Draganflyer X6 – built by a Saskatoon firm – costs $30,000, weighs just one kilogram and can carry either a digital still camera or a high-definition video camera. Officers are permitted to fly it at altitudes of up to 175 feet and at speeds of up to 30 kilometres per hour. The lower altitude means it can also get much more detailed images than helicopters. An officer on the ground can

Considering

Weight Loss Surgery? “Linda is one of my patients that has struggled with weight for years. She dieted but always regained her weight with additional added pounds. We wanted to provide the best procedure for her and decided on the new Gastric Sleeve. We perform more Sleeve procedures than any clinic in the region and have perfected our technique to the point where people are going home the same day. The Sleeve Gastrectomy produces the same weight loss results as the Bypass surgery without the risk, malnutrition, and complications with certain foods. As you can see Linda is free from weight issues, disease and is living a quality life now.” Patient care is our passion.

1 out of 3 Canadians suffer from Thyroid Disease! The most common form of Thyroid Disease is low thyroid. Consider low thyroid function if you experience fatigue or sluggishness, hair or eyebrow loss, weight gain or coldness in your extremities. Clinically low thyroid, as confirmed by your doctor, requires prescription medication. However, supplementing a healthy diet with ThyroSense® will help promote balance to your thyroid. ThyroSense® is recommended by health professionals to help with the symptoms of low thyroid, and is safe to use for those already on medication for low thyroid.

Cranky? PMS? Bloated? Acne? Up to 80% of all women are estimated to experience symptoms of PMS during their reproductive years. The most prominent cause of hormone imbalance related symptoms is excessive estrogen, including exposure to the birth control pill, pesticides and other environmental toxins. Symptoms can include PMS, endometriosis, fibrocystic breast disease, heavy and painful periods, hormonal acne and more… EstroSense® is recommended by health professionals and contains natural ingredients to help reduce the symptoms of estrogen dominance.

What health professionals are saying about EstroSense… In my practice I highly recommend EstroSense for women suffering estrogen dominance with conditions such as PMS, heavy periods, endometriosis, fibrocystic breasts, perimenopause and those women using any hormone supplements. Dr. Alvin Pettle, MD, F.R.C.S. (C) As a Naturopathic Doctor, I strongly recommend EstroSense for healthy hormone metabolism in women with PMS, irregular periods, heavy bleeding, fibroids or those taking hormone replacement therapy. Dr. Marita Schauch BSc. ND I love EstroSense’s unique blend of hormone balancing and detoxifying nutrients. I recommend it to my patients with a variety of hormonally related conditions, such as PMS, fibroids, endometriosis, and peri-menopause, including those on natural hormone therapy. EstroSense is also great for maintaining breast health at any age. Dr. Hyla Cass MD, author of 8 Weeks to Vibrant Health

Surrey Eagles forward Tyler Morley is sandwiched between a pair of Langley Rivermen during an exhibition game Friday night at South Surrey Arena.

Bayside premier men beat Meralomas 80-11

Sharks’ confidence high after big win Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

As far as warmup games go, the Bayside Sharks’ premier men’s division tilt against Meralomas Saturday was about as good as it gets. The Sharks, playing with a veteranladen squad, whipped the ’Lomas by an 80-11 score in the afternoon tilt, led by a 25-point effort from Peter Clifford, who had one try and 10 conversions. “That’s not a typo,” insisted Bayside coach Pat Kearney, when the subject of the game’s lopsided score

was brought up. “But Meralomas has already qualified for the premier season, so they didn’t have a lot of their guys out… that wasn’t a premier team we were playing.” Quality of opponent notwithstanding, Kearney was not about to apologize for the margin of victory. “We will take a 70-point win every day. So many players got points for us, it was really hard to keep track, but it was a great Saturday. We’re clicking, and our confidence is high.”

In addition to Clifford’s point spree – “That should help him out in the scoring (race),” Kearney understated – Bayside also had a three-try performance from firstyear Shark Karesi Ledue, a newcomer to the Peninsula by way of Fiji, where he was a late cut of that country’s national team. “We’re extremely excited to have him with us,” Kearney said. Because games against pre-qualified premier league teams – like Meralomas – don’t count in the standings for teams attempting to

qualifiy, as Bayside is, the match essentially meant little in the grand scheme of things. But it still served as a boost for the Sharks, whose first “real” game is this Saturday, in North Vancouver against Capilano, who are also battling for one of the final two spots in the spring’s premier circuit. Last year, Bayside edged Capilano for the final spot, and Kearney knows the North Van crew will have revenge on their minds. “I’m sure they haven’t forgotten about that,” he said. “And they want

in the premier league just as bad as we do, so it’s going to be a tough game. “The first two wins were nice, but we’ve got the biggest game of the season coming up. The guys have had this one marked on the calendar for awhile.” Though Bayside is one of the B.C. Rugby Union squads still looking for a berth in the premier league – five qualified by virtue of their performance last spring – Kearney thinks they’re a team to � see page 32

Exhibition game slated for Sept. 25

Heat, Thunderbirds to face off in South Surrey Peninsula hockey fans will have the opportunity later this month to watch two teams they would not normally get the chance to see – not this close to home, anyway. On Sunday, Sept. 25, the Abbotsford Heat – American Hockey League affiliate of the NHL’s Calgary Flames – will face off against the UBC Thunderbirds in an exhibition game at South Surrey Arena.

I am often asked if I think it is a good idea for elderly parents, especially those who are now single, to put the bulk of their assets into joint names with one or more of their children in order to avoid probate and the approximately 1.4% fee on the value of the parent’s estate at the time of death. The answer is not simply “yes� or “no� because while it is almost always better to pay less fees or tax, placing assets into joint names with one or more of a person’s

Tickets are available in two forms; a single-game ticket is $7, but for $20, ticket-buyers will get a ticket to not only the exhibition affair, but also the Eagles’ home opener two days earlier, Friday, Sept. 23 against the Langley Rivermen.

Joint ownership to avoid probate not for everyone children can have unexpected costs and can create more problems for the parent than the relatively small savings realized in avoiding probate fees. For example, placing an adult child(ren) on a parent’s bank or investment account could result in the child accessing the funds for his/her own purposes, or could expose the account to attachment by a creditor of the child. Similarly, a parent’s home held jointly with a child can expose the child’s interest to a charge by a creditor of that child, possibly even by a separating or divorcing spouse of the child. Another potential problem with jointly held real estate is that the fractional interest registered in the child’s name may lose the capital gains exempt status for income tax purposes because that part is not the child’s principal

residence. Over a long period or in a rapidly rising real estate market the loss of the exempt status could result in income tax far in excess of the 1.4% probate fees. Some of the other issues which might arise from joint ownership include: - loss of control over your property - reduced value of estate so as to defeat specific bequests - reduction of Executor’s fees based on a percentage of the deceased’s estate (wouldn’t include assets held jointly). Accordingly, joint ownership to avoid probate isn’t for everyone. I strongly recommend that you discuss with your lawyer the pros and cons of placing any of your assets into joint tenancy with someone other than your spouse.

Marriott plays Rutland Friday

Mariners lose scrimmage Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The Earl Marriott Mariners were set to battle South Delta Friday in the second senior football game held on their newly renovated field, but when referees did not show up, the exhibition tilt turned into a scrimmage instead. “There was a lack of communication somewhere,” said EMS coach Michael MackayDunn of the mixup, which resulted in coaches and volunteer parents officiating the contest. “It wasn’t the best situation, but it wasn’t all bad – we still got some reps in, and we were able to get some guys on the field who haven’t played a lot.” South Delta edged Marriott 22-15, but had to leave before the fourth quarter was up, with the Mariners in the red zone and threatening to score. “It was certainly a strange afternoon,”

Mackay-Dunn said. Bobby Devaney led EMS with two touchdown catches, both of which came from quarterback Cole Meyer. Mackay-Dunn said that acting as a referee rather than a coach gave him a different perspective on his team. “I didn’t have anything to do with the coaching at all, which was good for our assistant coaches, I think,” he said. “And it was interesting for me to see things from that point of view.” This Friday, Earl Marriott’s senior and junior squads will travel north to Kelowna, where they’ll each play Rutland Secondary. Rutland’s senior squad is coming off a big victory over Richmond’s Hugh Boyd Trojans. “They have a good running back... it should be a good game,” Mackay-Dunn said.
