Shakespeare by the Sea envisioned for theatre-goers

Perchance to dream in Crescent Beach Alex Browne Arts Reporter

You’ve heard of Bard On The Beach – but how about Shakespeare By The Sea? Producing the classic works of William Shakespeare each summer in her own (figurative) backyard has been a dream of Candace Radcliffe, Earl Marriott Secondary drama teacher, for years.

But now, the Crescent Beach resident – with her Beach House Theatre creative partners, former Marriott drama guru Rick Harmon and Marriott grad/set designer extraordinaire Nicole Chartrand – has met all the initial challenges of achieving the goal. An outdoor – but sheltered – inaugural Shakespeare By The Sea production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream has been given

the green light by the City of Surrey for five performances Aug. 15-19, 2012 at Crescent Beach. The talented team, which created a memorably magical version of the bard’s most accessible classic at Marriott in 2005, plans to transform the parking lot area adjacent to Blackie Spit into a lit open-air theatre with some 200-250 seats under an arching tent. A tiered stage set will have the most dynamic

backdrop imaginable – in the team’s words: “the incredible natural stage of Blackie Spit in the background.” “We feel like Crescent Beach is the star,” said Radcliffe, adding that much thought and discussion with city officials has gone into choosing a performance area that works best for the company and the community.  see page 4

rained to be virtually silent and nearly invisible in the shadows of the deep Borneo jungle, Gurkha soldiers were slightly amused – or bemused – by a young, fair-skinned soldier from Sussex, England lurking with them in search of the enemy. Even with his face caked in camouflage makeup, Bob Dominick’s steel-blue eyes stood out against the myriad green hues of the tangled, rain-soaked vegetation. “Keep your eyes shut,” they whispered to him, only half in jest. Stealth, silence and the senses were keys to survival in this environment. Dominick was at war, a particularly dirty one that the British government – still smarting from the Suez Crisis in a new post-colonial world – was keen to keep from the public eye, even though in Borneo, the “good guys” eventually won. From 1964-’68, Dominick was a member of the Combined British Commonwealth Force of special forces operatives during a conflict between communist insurgents, backed by Indonesia, and the newly independent Malaysia (formerly Malaya), backed by the U.K. It was a war of three long phases that lasted from shortly after the Second World War into the early 1970s. His first tour of duty lasted for two years, far longer than soldiers

After a six-month furlough in the U.K., he returned for another 18 months. The young man loved the jungle lifestyle. “You’ve always got a smile on your face, bloke,” one Australian soldier told him. His bases were in the northern quarter of the island of Borneo, in Give the birds a holiday treat!

the old Malayan/new Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak. His job was to attack the bases and supply routes of communist insurgents trying to take over the north. Dominick would patrol along the western coast of Borneo and would quietly enter Indonesia-proper, south of the border between the two countries. As a soldier, “you don’t listen

to the politics of it when you’re on the ground fighting,” says the South Surrey resident, now 64 and a businessman in Whalley. Dominick was part of a unique military force. The coalition comprised special forces soldiers (including British SAS and Royal Marine SBS) from throughout Commonwealth countries; Malaysian police;

professional Gurkha Regiment soldiers from Nepal; and Dayak Indians, indigenous tribes of Borneo notorious as headhunters. Dominick describes the military force, which included the Royal Navy on picket duty along the coast, as “a lot of different entities fighting for the same goal – freedom.”  see page 11

A recent report by the Real Estate Investment Network says Surrey will have the hottest real estate market in the province over the next three to five years, and perhaps surprising to some, it predicts Surrey will surpass Vancouver in population within the next decade. This is a key issue for all Surrey candidates to focus on. Then there’s White Rock, which long ago was Surrey’s Ward 7 until it broke away in 1957. The election there is a heated one, with no incumbent mayor running, and a great deal of discussion revolves around whether Surrey and White Rock will eventually merge again. Ultimately, that decision will be up to White Rock voters, unless the province intervenes (as it did in 1957, when White Rock left Surrey due to a bill that was passed in the provincial legislature). However, White Rock residents are right to think carefully about the future, because their city, just like Surrey and Delta, is one of the most desirable places in Canada to live. How all three cities adapt to the intense interest by so many outside investors and prospective residents will be up to the new councils elected on Nov. 19. Frank Bucholtz writes Thursdays for the Peace Arch News. He is the editor of the Langley Times.

news Police plan blitz after mother warns of bus-stop danger for students

A plea for her daughter’s safe passage Sarah Massah Black Press

Drivers ignoring traffic-safety rules to speed past school buses have one South Surrey woman calling on police to put a higher priority on children’s safety. Dyanna Zimmer said she says a prayer every time she watches her 13-year-old daughter, Sam, cross the road to catch the bus on 192 Street near 32 Avenue. Every day, the bus stops, flashes its lights and puts down its stop sign, signalling to motorists not to pass because children are crossing, she said. And an “unbelievable” number of drivers ignore the signals, she said. “I know it may sound silly, but when she is on the road and I’m in my living room, I say a prayer to myself. I just ask, ‘please keep her safe’,” Zimmer said. Zimmer said efforts – as recent as last month – to get Surrey RCMP involved have

Three eye mayoralty Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

With Angelo Megla out of the running for the role of White Rock mayor – though still on the ballot, due to a late decision to drop out of the race – Peace Arch News spoke to the three people who still have their eye on the job: Larry Anschell, Wayne Baldwin and Lynne Sinclair.

‘Clean slate’

Chief election officer Tracey Arthur gives resident Brian Baxter an opportunity to test out the city’s new automated vote-counting machines Thursday.

Ballot-counting machines leased from Toronto for nine communities

Election-night trickle effect now past Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A sneak peek at White Rock’s new automated vote-counting machines may not have garnered a deluge of interest last week, but they are anticipated to make Nov. 19 much easier on those charged with tabulating the results. The 2008 election, with nearly two dozen candidates, was “a complicated manual vote,” Tracey Arthur, the city’s chief election officer, recalled Thursday, noting numbers were being crunched until about 2 a.m. in that election. That year, White Rock was one of the last to announce its results, she added. Arthur is hopeful the six leased machines will shave off at least a couple of hours, if not more. Rented from the City of Toronto at a cost of about $11,000 – following council approval in

July – the machines use an optical scan to track which candidates are receiving votes and how many. The results are stored on a memory card, so should a power outage hit mid-count, the tabulation to that point will not be lost. As well, the system reduces the incidence of spoiled ballots, as it immediately flags any that have been incorrectly marked. The forms require voters to simply draw a line that connects two parts of the arrows pointing to their candidates of choice. Unfortunately, there’s nothing in the new system that ensures more citizens will actually get out and vote. While voter turnout in White Rock is typically amongst the highest in B.C. – in 2008, 36.86 per cent of the city’s 14,980 eligible voters cast ballots – there is much room for improvement, Arthur said.

“Thirty-six per cent is not great,” she said. Arthur noted White Rock is among the last communities in the Lower Mainland to make the move to automated vote counting. A report suggesting 10 of the machines be leased for use in the 2008 election went to the city’s finance and audit committee in July 2007, but was defeated. There are communities that have been using the machines for at least 10 years, Arthur said. She noted this year’s expense was reduced by joining with eight other communities in leasing the machines. Other cities participating in the joint venture include North Vancouver, Port Moody, Squamish, Coquitlam and West Vancouver. Another new addition to election day will be the projection of results onto a screen at White Rock City Hall as they come in, Arthur said.

When it comes to revitalizing White Rock, Larry Anschell is confident a focus on arts and less restrictive city policies are key. If elected, he wants to see a major arts festival established that includes a charity fundraising component, and a return of the sandcastle competition. Such events – along with more options for dog owners, free waterfront parking in the winter and fewer in-camera meetings – will help turn around current perceptions that paint the city as dysfunctional, he said. “White Rock has gotten by on its good looks for too long, and it’s catching up,” Anschell said. “Once perception changes of being progressive instead of restrictive, things are going to open up.” In addition, the recording-studio owner has pledged to donate 10 per cent of his first year’s salary to helping establish an artists’ co-operative on Marine Drive. Anschell, 46, ran unsuccessfully for councillor in 2008. He said he chose to take aim at the mayoralty this time largely because it would afford him more opportunity to have his ideas heard. At all-candidates meetings, councillor candidates are typically allotted far less time to respond to citizens’ questions than those running for mayor, he noted.  see page 5

Thespians hope business on board  from page 1 “We didn’t want to be confrontational with anybody,” she said. “We’re just so excited about the potential for the project and what it could be.” The weather, of course, is always an imponderable when an outdoor event is planned in B.C. “We have chosen what is, historically, the warmest, driest period of the year,” said Harmon. “But no matter what the weather is, the show will go on.” It’s likely there will be no argument about that from the actors, for whom Radcliffe and Harmon plan to draw on some keen alumni from Marriott productions. The team also plans to open up casting to the community at large early next year. “We’re looking at a broad age range, generally anywhere from 19 to 60,” Radcliffe said. “We’re also going to need a large group of volunteers.” The organizers also see Shakespeare By The Sea as an opportunity to mentor youth, particularly in the many behind-the-scenes technical roles required to create an instant outdoor theatre. “This will be the first time we have done a production that isn’t in an existing theatre,” admitted Harmon, whose directing credits also include many community shows with the Fraser Valley Gilbert and Sullivan Society and Peace Arch Musical Theatre Society.

Candace Radcliffe goes over plans with fellow teacher Rick Harmon. To make the Beach House Theatre/Shakespeare By The Sea project a reality will require genuine community support – including significant financial contributions from individual donors and corporate sponsors to the tune of some $70,000-$80,000. Fundraising is currently underway, with a major limited-ticket event planned for Morgan Creek Golf Club for Feb. 25. Just getting to this point has been an intense experience, they said – including meeting all the requirements of establishing a non-profit society. But they’re happy they have a board of directors with a strong background in the arts – and

the business of arts – including former Marriott principal, and current Tamanawis Secondary principal, Margaux Molson. “It’s one of the most incredible groups of people I’ve ever worked with,” Radcliffe said. And it’s not lost on the team that the project has many potential tie-ins with local businesses and promoting the Semiahmoo Peninsula – and Crescent Beach in particular – as a destination. It’s their hope that many others will see the potential, and want to get on the band wagon. For more information on how to get involved with the project, visit www.beachhousetheatre.org or call Radcliffe at 604-710-4929.

Differing visions for future of city

‘Better image’ For Wayne Baldwin, the leap into public politics was largely driven by concern over the current council’s spending habits. The former longtime city manager cited $1 million spent on consultants in the first nine months of 2011 and a $414,900 pier contract that was awarded last month as two key examples. “It really disturbed me to have the pier-lighting contract let on extremely short notice‌ ostensibly because it was a safety item,â€? he said. “(City staff) were planning on working on the pier-light replacement back in 2010, so I fail to see how this is an emergency that came out of the blue.â€? Baldwin, 65, is also concerned that studies examining the city’s economic development keep being done, with little to no movement on the advice given. “They did these studies and then just forgot about them‌ There was one in 2009; another one, a complete strategic plan just died,â€? he said. “It’s

editorial

Dangers not just in our past t is now 93 years since the bloodbath known as the War to End All Wars concluded in a cluster of signatures on an armistice document. Some 66 years have passed since the Second World War ended with the death throes of the Third Reich and the atomic devastation of two Japanese cities, and actual survivors of that era are dwindling to a frail minority. Unless you’re actively involved in studying the history of those conflicts – as Earl Marriott Secondary Grade 12 student Stephanie Nowak did firsthand when she travelled to Europe last summer as Beaverbrook Vimy Prize winner – the reasons they were fought are growing dimmer, inevitably, in the general consciousness. At this distance, it seems extraordinary that all those nations should have taken arms against each other. We struggle each year to find significance in a few seconds of grainy footage, rerun endlessly on television, of soldiers crouching from shell explosions, heavy guns being fired, air formations and the rumbling advance of tanks. What relevance do clashes of imperialism in the early 20th century and the rise of dictatorships on the heels of the socio-economic turmoil of the 1920s and 1930s have to our lives? Those who attend Friday’s Remembrance services will say the sacrifices of the First and Second World War generations – and subsequent decades of Canadian peace-keeping service – ensured the freedoms we enjoy today. And so we don our poppies and pay our respects to the shrinking ranks of veterans, because we are basically decent people, even though the freedoms of which they speak are something we have long taken for granted. But the reality is that we live in a world where one war did not end all wars. Freedom cannot be taken for granted; dictatorships still rise and fall and the arbitrary brutality of military conflict is still a fact of life – not a three-dimensional simulation for the Xbox or PlayStation. Men and women in the armed forces are still being called on to put their lives on the line, too many still losing them in the line of duty. Imperialism survives in the realms of energy, water and food supply, and cultural antipathies and the recent international meltdown of economies provide tinder as volatile as any in the past. Honour our veterans we should, but perhaps this Remembrance Day we would also be wise to think of the often-quoted words of philosopher George Santayana: “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

It’s no history book, but a history book isn’t alive. Louis is. He’s one of the thousands of Second World War veterans who are, even if reluctant, still able to tell their stories to those interested. The veterans who choose to stand (or sit) at attention at 11 a.m. tomorrow are free to express their pride for serving their country. But even those who don’t, the ones who remain in the shadows, deserve our respect, too. All of the soldiers of the previous great war are gone now. Within decades, all of the men and women from the Second World War era that are here today will be gone, too. There’s a sense of guilt about asking Louis what Nov. 11 means to him – as if it’s a cliché. His answer is pretty direct. “Nothing.

Students learn talk is cheap Editor: Re: School funding good for students and politicians, too, Nov. 3. It was nice of columnist Frank Bucholtz to point out the great move the politicians made in finally directing more funding to the school districts. As a parent of two, I agree with him. It is a long overdue decision. But let’s not pat the politicians on the back too quickly. The last time they promised more money to education – as Bucholtz mentions – was back in 2005. Back then, Sunnyside Elementary was singled out as one of the schools to be rebuilt and expanded. It is now six years later and we are still waiting for someone – Finance Minister Kevin Falcon? – to sign the final paperwork so that construction can begin. In the meantime, the students are still attending a school that is at least 60 years old with a sewer system that has a tendency to back up into the library occasionally. The architectural drawings for the new school were created a few years ago, and I’ve been informed that with the increase in development in the Grandview Heights and surrounding area, if the new school opened next September, we would already need 10 portables to accommodate all of the students. I wonder how many it will be when the school does actually open some year? Talk is cheap, especially when it comes from a politician. Promises are only as great as the action that comes from them. Let’s see some. Colleen Bacon, Surrey

Credibility questioned Editor: Re: Battle for the mayor’s chair, Nov. 3. I am wondering if the term “battle” is appropriate for incumbent candidate Dianne Watts in Surrey’s upcoming election for mayor. By coincidence, together with my copy of the Peace Arch News, I also received the Elections 2011 Voter’s Guide Booklet, with short bios of candidates for mayor, councillors and school trustees. After reading the PAN article featuring the platforms of the candidates for mayor, I read their bios in the guide. I would firstly offer them my compliments for having the interest and desire to serve Surrey; activism is a critical component of a healthy community. However, they do need to bring some in-depth and relevant experience to the table. Altruism alone is not acceptable. Only two of the six candidates have even remotely applicable public or business service experience. Others – with backgrounds of being a realtor, “a rebel with cause,” a working artist, another with just a

stated “vision” – expect us to believe they have the qualifications to lead a city of almost half a million residents and manage $300 million in annual revenue. I am sorry, but it is almost an insult to the magnitude of the job that they would consider themselves adequate to even hold the coattails of Watts, and I shudder at the eventual prospect of her retirement if our choice to replace her would be from such a crop of candidates. Would any of them have the nerve to apply for the job of CEO with a similarly large corporation? How is it that the top job attracts completely unqualified people while the candidates for council and school trustee are brimming with relevant and credible background? Are they just more realistic? George Zador, Surrey Q Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts has fudged her resumé by saying she lives in Cloverdale when she doesn’t. Why is it a problem when other public officials fudge their resumés but not the mayor? And while the mayor has little formal education to put on her resume, it is still a subject of interest for the electorate. Watts is silent on what the city paid for her Economic Summit, on how much speaker George W. Bush was paid, on why she doesn’t back up building inspectors on buildingcode violations, on why she turns a blind eye to city bylaws generally, on what she does for her generous developer and firefighter friends after each election, on why onethird of her handsome salary is tax

free, and on what the real price of the new city hall will be. The Surrey election could be exciting. It is just missing the issues. Jim McMurtry, Surrey Q I find you are continuously praising Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts in every single issue of the Peace Arch News. It is quite apparent that you do not report facts – but try and influence voters’ opinions. This is not fair and correct. You do not give the other candidates a chance to portray themselves. What you are doing is poor business etiquette. It will reflect on your paper. I. Thielemann, Surrey

VAG seen only during protests Editor: It would be interesting to see the number of people who actually enter the Vancouver Art Gallery. Although regularly in the news, it is only as a magnet for anybody with a grievance against the world. What a great site if it was cleared out and refurbished as housing for the areas “underachievers.” A win-win situation. The mayor could boast of supplying more housing for Vancouver’s “lost souls”, and the new residents would be on centre stage of whatever protest was the “flavour of the day,” just by walking out their front door.

Veterans’ work continues now Editor: As we pause on Nov. 11 to remember those who sacrificed their lives in military service, we can also give thanks to the Second World War veterans who played a role in building Surrey Memorial Hospital. Surrey vets, fresh from the battlefield, arrived back home in the 1940s and took up an important cause closer to home. They fought for a new hospital. Due to their relentless fundraising and advocacy, Surrey Memorial Hospital opened in 1959. Now, 52 years later, it is the second largest hospital in B.C. It is now undergoing an expansion that will see the addition of 151 new beds, bringing it to 650 beds. The construction of the Critical Care Tower at Surrey Memorial is the largest capital expansion in the province’s history. Additionally, it plays an important role in the training of doctors with an entire floor in the new tower devoted to the Medical School at UBC. The veterans, their families and friends would be proud that their actions have brought relief and

Four of 170 voters cast ballots in White Rock’s advanced-voting session at White Rock Community Centre Tuesday.

Dismal democracy demonstration Editor: It’s time to break a disturbing trend in B.C. – the dismal demonstration of democracy by Canadians in municipal elections. In recent years, the voter turnout has been around 25-30 per cent. This participation level, coupled with large numbers of candidates, means that it is possible for someone to be elected with as little as 10-12 per cent of the eligible electorate. Two recent all-candidate meetings in White Rock had surprisingly large turnouts. But when it comes to actually getting out to vote, the vast majority of us can’t be bothered or won’t find the time or the energy to do it. This is one of the basic fundamentals of a democracy. Thousands of Canadians have given their lives

protecting this right for us. We’ll remember them on Nov. 11. Let’s truly honour them by fulfilling our responsibility to “hold the torch high” – as noted in the poem, In Flanders Fields – and vote this year. With three advance polls, plus the election date of Nov. 19, we have four chances to choose the leaders who will guide the future for our city. This will be a significant election, and a few extra votes can make a key difference in who will be our mayor and council for the next three years. It’s such a small thing to do – and yet it means so much. Civic responsibility begins with each one of us, not just with our elected politicians. Jim McKinlay, White Rock

The appeal of a woman convicted in connection with the May 2008 death of toddler Alexa Middelaer is to be heard today in B.C Court of Appeal. Carol-Ann Berner is appealing convictions of dangerous driving causing death, dangerous driving causing bodily harm, impaired driving causing death and impaired driving causing bodily harm. Alexa – daughter of Southridge Junior School principal Laurel Middelaer – was at the side of a Ladner road when she was killed. Berner was found guilty in July 2010 in Surrey Provincial Court. Her sentence included 2½ years in prison. Berner has been out on bail since last November, pending this week’s hearing. In arguing for the appeal, Berner’s lawyer said the provincial court judge had erred on several points of law; as well, the sentence was excessive, he said. - Tracy Holmes

perspectives …on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

 For a full list of Remembrance Day ceremonies, see page 15

Inspired by family  from page 1 Their weapons: “Everything from Sterling submachine guns to blowpipes.” There were no set-piece battles, no frontlines and little distinction between civilians and combatants. “It was very difficult to identify the enemy from civilians, which is something that one could say is the start of the current wave of warfare,” says Dominick. “In World War Two, for example, everyone wore jolly old uniforms, and you could spot who they were a mile away.” The new conflict was a war of terrorist bombings, ambushes, massacres and unplanned engagements deep in the undergrowth. In comparison, Dominick says, today’s soldiers are fighting with different rules of engagement under the eye of cameras, limiting their effectiveness. In Malaysia, with fewer restrictions, the soldiers did their jobs to the fullest, and won – in contrast to the far bloodier and more public mess in the jungles of Vietnam. “We had to do things that CNN would be all over today.” In Borneo, the insurgents had little support from the local population, the interdiction of their supplies was relatively effective (North Vietnam had several borders with their weapons suppliers), and leaders in communist countries lost interest in continuing to help what they realized was a lost cause. Most importantly, Dominick says, is that the Commonwealth army had better-trained soldiers who were more disciplined, better armed and fed, and more dedicated to their cause.

The Commonwealth forces also did their best to not antagonize local populations while hunting for insurgents among civilians. On rare occasions, they fed and sent back prisoners with the message that the British weren’t going to do what the enemy was told they would – meaning torture or kill prisoners. (Dominick doesn’t know what happened to those prisoners who returned to their own comrades). But tens of thousands of the enemy were killed in the war – no one knows exactly how many, Dominick admits. The death toll on the “allied” side was 519 British or Commonwealth personnel, 1,300 Malaysian police and about 3,000 civilians. ••• Bob Dominick remembers the austerity of the immediate postSecond World War period in the UK, where rationing didn’t taper off until the early 1950s. “I can remember not seeing an orange or a banana until I was about five years old.” Since his grandfather had served in the Royal Navy during the First World War, and his father and six uncles were officers and soldiers in the Second World War, Dominick joined the Military Academy at the age of 16. “To grow up with men that had been through those conflicts was quite inspiring for me.” He recalls family stories of liberation, in particular in Europe, and found a growing passion about people’s freedom. “I see two parallels now. One where I grew up as a little boy where I was free, and another with my mother-in-law growing up in a (Belgian) town that was occupied by the Germans.

Boaz Joseph photos

Bob Dominick at the Whalley Cenotaph. Above, medals awarded to Dominick’s grandfather (top left), father (centre) and himself (right). “I grew up to treasure the freedom that I’d been given. In a way, it seemed a natural progression for me to move into the job I did.” Dominick would return for his second 18-month tour in the

jungle as a volunteer. “You couldn’t (volunteer to be in combat) without feeling that you’re helping people feel free from oppression. I don’t know many people who would fight without that passion.”

While he admits it seems odd to call his experience an adventure today, he doesn’t shy away from it. “This is something I struggle to understand when I read about ‘our poor guys’ overseas. If they’re anything like the guys I used to be with, they want to be there because that’s what they’re trained to do. They don’t want to be sitting around in a camp waiting for something to happen. They want to be on the ground.” After his two tours in Asia, Dominick returned to the UK and was involved with the military’s Special Investigations Branch, which works on drug trafficking, major crimes and terrorist threats to the UK. Finally looking for peace and quiet, Dominick moved to Canada in 1987. He is the president and CEO of Lightyear Digital Theatre, a Surrey and Beverly Hills company that last year donated a $500,000 digital and 3D theatre system to SFU Surrey. He works at WestStone Properties near Central City, is the immediate past-president of the Downtown Surrey Business Improvement Association and is the chairman of the Surrey City Centre Economic Development Committee. In 2010, British veterans of the Malayan War, including Dominick, were each given a Pingat Jasa Malaysia medal by the Malaysian government for their service in the campaign. The British Ministry of Defence had to give special permission for the medals, since the British veterans had already received medals from their own country. The veterans now have two medals honouring their participation in the same war.

Cheryl Johnson with husband, Allan.

Woman fights against arthritis A Peninsula woman is fighting back against a debilitating disease and urging others to do the same through public discussion and community support. Cheryl Johnson, who has been living with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) for three years, is encouraging people who suffer from the disease to connect with others in the arthritis community and diminish the feelings of isolation that can stem from the diagnosis. “People should know they are not alone,” she said in a release. In the year following her diagnosis, Johnson lost her job and had difficulties with everyday tasks, such as opening jars or going for a walk. Deciding to take control of her life back, she began learning as much as she could about the disease. Her research led her to contact the Arthritis

Society in B.C., where she began taking their arthritis selfmanagment class. “I wanted to learn as much as I could about the disease so I could take control of this thing and slowly regain my life,” Johnson said. Johnson now advocates for people who live with the disease, speaking to the community and leading workshops. On Nov. 15, The Arthritis Society will be hosting a free public forum for people who live with RA at the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel, 15269 104 Ave at 7 p.m. The forum will be led by rheumatologist, Dr. Diane Lacaille, and will focus on treatment options, the value of physical activity and ways to protect joints.

COM·MU·NI·TY: [defined by]: the desire to live in a place animated by people rather than things However you define community, we call it an easy way to meet and connect with your neighbours. It’s just one of the many reasons residents love calling Morgan Crossing home. It could be at the car show on Main Street (see below!), or one of the many other events, like movie nights in the summer or resident parties. How about chatting with fellow dog owners at the Morgan Crossing Dog Park, or meeting during a class or workout at Steve Nash Sports Club. Or just hanging out at the coffee shops and restaurants, at a wine tasting at Everything Wine, or on a bench on Main Street. You’ll see and meet lots of the people who live and work at Morgan Crossing… and maybe even ask out your cute neighbour, Amy. Because loving where you live should be about more than just loving your stunning condo (though we have lots of those too!).

Donations help during slow season

Youth group helps food bank Sarah Massah Black Press

Nearly 20 students from Panorama Ridge Secondary raised and donated more than 400 food items to the Surrey Food Bank Monday. The teenagers – members of the Interact Club and sponsored by the Rotary Club of White Rock – went door-to-door, in costume, as part of a “trick-or-eat campaign” on Halloween, asking for food donations instead of candy.

“People were really willing to give,” said Grade 11 student Amelia Misak. “It felt good to get the donations.” Rotary member Steven Tate said he was impressed with the initiative the students displayed. “This was all them. They had a little bit of help from us, but they were the ones who organized it and went door-to-door to raise the donations,” Tate said, noting Rotarians added more than $250 to the funds.

Tanya Ponnan, manager of development at the food bank, said the students’ help will be a boost during a time when donations slow down. “There is no season for hunger, it’s year-round. It’s great that we have the community come together and have people like you and me help people like you and me,” Ponnan said. The food bank serves 14,000 clients a month with more than 40 per cent under the age of 18.

Lots of reasons to work with a Travel Agent By Cruise Holidays Even with a universe of online cruise, tour and other travel information at your fingertips, using the services of a travel agent makes good sense – and can save time and money, too. Travel agents are up to date and in tune with the many travel options available for specific destinations. Rather than spend precious hours researching those options online, let your travel agent walk you through the possibilities and the advantages of each. For example, if you have a desire to explore Europe on your own, your travel agent can help you create a personalized itinerary and can arrange for hotels and transportation where and when needed. If you would like to take an organized tour, your travel agent can help you sift through hundreds of possibilities to find the one that’s best for you. With their in-depth knowledge of the travel industry and advanced reservations technology, travel agents can find deals that are just as good – and often better – than what you can find online. Agents can use their relationships with cruise lines, tour companies, car rental companies and hotels – plus their personal experience with a variety of destinations to o get you the greatest value for your travel budget. Agents also know when an online deal is literally ‘too good to be true’. Travel agents can also handle some of the important details of your trip, such as booking a limousine to take you to the theatre; making dinner reservations; and obtaining event tickets. They can schedule tee times, spa appointments, museum tours and much more. If your itinerary is complicated – for example, if it includes a combination of air, cruise and coach travel – it’s really essential to work with a travel agent. Your agent can make sure that all of the details of an intricate itinerary are set, and will be available to provide help if things change along the way. A travel agent will be your advocate for the value and quality you want from your leisure travel. Talk with your Cruise Holidays of White Rock travel expert about everything he or she can do to make your next travel experience smooth and memorable. And, remember, Cruise Holidays of White Rock isn’t just cruising! We can help with air, hotels, all-inclusive vacations, and so much more.

Hyack hires new director

on Siemens hearing aids

SUN, NOV 13, 12-4PM

Grant Granger Black Press

New Westminster’s Hyack Festival Association has hired a former television producer and event organizer as its new executive director. White Rock resident Douglas Smith had been serving as managing partner of Alliance West Sports Entertainment, which ran the Khatsahlano Music and Art Festival on Fourth Avenue in Vancouver’s Kitsilano neighbourhood, drawing more than 60,000 people. Smith has also helped organize the City of Surrey’s major annual events, growing its Canada Day celebrations and establishing the Fusion Multicultural Festival. “We’re thrilled with the hiring,” said Hyack president Rick Molstad. “He’s very confident. His background shows he’s had experience in organizing successful festivals. “We hope that he’s going to bring some fresh, new ideas to us and enhance the events that we put on for the community.” Smith replaces Melanie Vogel, a native of Germany, who held the position for 2½ years before resigning to continue her world travels. From Smith’s perspective, he sees a lot of potential in all of Hyack’s events throughout the year. “I saw the opportunity for growth. I saw some of the event properties that Hyack is involved with. I also love the community. It’s an established community, it has so much heritage, tradition and that’s a tremendous asset to build on too,” said Smith. “I think New Westminster has a lot of assets to build on.” Smith said his success at developing sponsorships and forging partnerships has paid off for the organizations he has worked for. And by doing that Smith believes he can raise the bar on the festivals. For instance, by increasing sponsorship Smith said he was able to pay  see page 18

NOVEMBER19

SURREY: Race for mayor Vikram Bajwa Occupation: Realtor/mortgage consultant, senior administrator Key issues: 1. Appoint municipal auditor general in Surrey 2. Vancouver model like local Surrey police 3.Involve local taxpayers in all projects over $10 million: Transparency. Surrey is ready for a change. Forty-six per cent are looking for a new mayor to involve them to solve the major issues of development, jobs, economy, crime and balancing multiculuralism, towards the positive energy to make Surrey the global city it yearns for. Surrey’s image has been tarnished with the last economic summit, in regards to accountability, compassion and direction. If elected I will adhere by the bylaws and provide transparency for all departments.

To help Surrey voters make an informed choice at the polls during the civic election on Saturday, Nov. 19, Black Press asked all council candidates to provide their name, occupation, top three issues in order of importance and 100 words briefly describing their platform and plans if elected.

Ross Buchanan Occupation: Business and leadership consultant Key issues: 1. Out-of-control spending 2. City hall has disrespected the citizens of Surrey 3. The control and ownership of this mayor and council by big money corporate dollars. If the citizens of Surrey choose to honour me with the opportunity to serve them, I would immediately stop construction of the new city hall and review whether or not now is the best time to be making an investment that is dragging the city into serious debt. The second thing I would do is roll up my sleeves and start fighting to ensure that we receive “our fair share.” Our fair share of education dollars, our fair share of transportation dollars and our fair share of health dollars.

Sudarshan (Shan) Rana Occupation: Activist Key issues: 1. Surrey is not a village anymore. Let there be a ward system 2. Surrey is big enough to have 10 councillors now 3. Surrey’s bad governance means illegal suites Bring in a ward system and watch illegal suites. MPs and MLAs are elected out of wards, why not city councillors? Present at-large electoral system serves a few. British Columbia is the only Canadian province holding on to it, unlike rest of Canada. B.C. government in 1995 gave a mixed electoral system to District of Lake Country but rest of B.C. municipalities still vote at-large. I would like to see 10 ward councillors sharing the current salary budget.

Touraj Ghanbar-zadeh Occupation: Business owner Key issues: 1. Raising gas and property taxes in addition to tolls on bridges will have a significant negative effect on Surrey’s economy 2. There is a lack of leadership, public consultation and accountability on council 3. Over-crowding of public schools If elected I will: Cancel the new gas tax. Consult school officials, public and all level of governments to deal with over-crowding of schools immediately. Negotiate with various levels of governments to bring SkyTrain to Surrey. Extra buses and light trains are not the solution. The current Translink funding is not sustainable. A new formula needs to be considered. I advocate for the use of a single fare for using public transit. The current three-zone fare system is unfair and discriminatory. The three-zone plan penalizes Surrey residents.

Dianne Watts (SF)* Occupation: Mayor Key Issues: 1. Reducing crime 2. Jobs and new investment 3. Expanded public transit First elected mayor in 2005, I have worked to create jobs, re-define our downtown and enhance our town centres through our new Build Surrey Program. We have also adopted a Sustainability Charter and have not removed land from the ALR for residential, commercial or industrial development. Our innovative Crime Reduction Strategy is working and I am proud that Surrey was the first city in B.C. to establish a Housing and Homelessness Foundation. I also believe we need light rail in Surrey to meet our public transit needs. My husband Brian and I are raising our two daughters in South Surrey.

Clifford Inimgba Occupation: Business college professor, community leader, entrepreneur and management consultant Key issues: 1. Safety 2. Unemployment 3. The neglect of visible minorities As your mayor, I will bring integrity, honesty, and accountability to council. Make Surrey the safest city in Canada. Create jobs. Freeze tax increases. Shelter the homeless. Improve care services for the disabled, seniors, children, youths and women. Basement suites will remain grandfathered. Involve religious/community leaders in council. End racial profiling and racism. Improve transit system. Preserve farmland and parks. Develop environmental preservation strategies.

* Denotes incumbent SF – Surrey First

(Candidates for school trustee and questions for White Rock council are to appear Tuesday, Nov. 15)

Deanna Welters Occupation: Non-medical senior home care provider/small business owner Key issues: 1. Improve public transit, initiate green infrastructure 2. Develop sustainable growth initiatives in our six official communities, curbing urban sprawl 3. Protect nature spaces and create pedestrian/cycle pathway along the Fraser River shoreline I feel it is imperative, as Surrey grows, that we commit to building green infrastructure into our communities. The results of well-functioning, live, work and recreate practices in our city will provide healthy communities. Caring for our nature spaces and recognizing the wealth in maintaining the bio-diversity of such areas as the Fraser River shoreline and Surrey Bend is about providing this security for future generations.

ote. Surrey’s your city.

Researcher creates form to help citizens evaluate candidates

Who should you vote for? Kevin Mills Black Press

W

hen the public casts their ballots on Nov. 19, the choices made will shape the future of municipalities for the next three years. But how do voters know if they’re supporting the right candidates? It’s a dilemma researcher Sherril Guthrie is attempting to solve. Guthrie has created an evaluation guide for voters in her city – Abbotsford – which she hopes will allow people to make more informed choices. (Her guide can be applied to any municipality). Kevin Mills photo “It’s a poorly Sherril Guthrie with her candidate kept secret that many voters base evaluation form. their decisions on criteria as flimsy as name recognition, likability, even appearance. Some voters routinely consider a candidate’s membership in a social group, church or organization as important,” she said. In order to create effective criteria for the role of mayor and councillor, Guthrie enlisted the help of 20 of Abbotsford’s community leaders. Participants were selected based on experience and knowledge of business, agriculture, education, social services, the environment, culture, the arts and politics. Each were given draft materials consisting of a list of 16 issues to rate, a list of qualifications and a sample guide. From their input, a one-page guide was created, allowing voters to rate candidates on each of the 10 job qualifications. The rating system goes from one to five (one meaning not qualified and five meaning qualified) for a total possible score of 50 points. The higher the score, the better the politician’s potential. The 10 categories are broken into three different groups – knowledge, skills, and personal strengths. In the knowledge portion, voters can rate candidates on how well they know the issues, the city (including history, diversity, trends, population growth, etc.) and legislation (community charter, municipal act, agricultural land reserve, etc.). “You can’t do the job unless you have that solid foundation of knowledge of the issues the community faces,” said Guthrie. The second section of the evaluation form features five topics focusing on skills, including communication, comprehension of finances, problem solving, diplomacy and organization. The final two evaluation points fall under the personal strengths category, including candidate qualities (honest, fair, trustworthy) and track record (related experience). Guthrie is hopeful that the public will find her project useful. It does require work on the part of each voter, but Guthrie feels it is worth it to avoid the potential consequences of having an unqualified individual in office.

NOVEMBER19

SURREY: Candidates for city council Kuldip Ardawa (SCC) Occupation: (Not provided) Key issues: 1. Affordable transportation 2. Poverty and homelessness 3. Public safety As an elected councillor with the Surrey Civic Coalition team, I will positively advocate for better and affordable transportation. I will investigate and implement real solutions to our transit problems. Poverty and homelessness are important issues. The living wage strategy and prevention programs need to be supported. Nobody should be without stable accommodation. Public safety is paramount. Crime and vandalism are increasing. Neighbourhoods need to be involved. A safe environment is the strong foundation for any developing and sustainable community.

Rina Gill (SCC) Occupation: Small business owner Key issues: 1. Public consultation when city is making key decisions 2. Educating the community on benefits of a (mixed) wards system 3. Addressing basement suites, mega houses and illegal construction I am a small business owner who is active in the community through volunteer work. I launched the Indo Canada Chamber of Commerce (ICCC) – Vancouver Business Council and became the national director of B.C. Operations. My volunteer efforts with ICCC have allowed me to work closely with the business community. I have also been involved with the YWCA Single Mothers Housing Committee, Vancouver Multicultural Society, Surrey Urban Farmers Market and the Newton Advocacy Group Society.

Bruce Hayne (SF) Occupation: Principal, thornleyHAYNE Creative Communications Key Issues: 1. Reducing crime 2. Jobs and new investment 3. Homelessness A Surrey resident since 1993, I attended Ryerson Politechnic University College. Creating new jobs, ensuring our streets are safe and building community facilities for families are key to a livable community. Community involvement includes: director, B.C. Summer Games Organizing Committee, the Mayor’s Red Tape Reduction Committee, director, Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation, past president of the Surrey Board of Trade, and past chair of the Surrey Methamphetamine Regional Task Force. I live in Cloverdale with my wife Joyce and two kids.

Bob Bose (SCC)* Occupation: City councillor/scientist Key issues: 1. Electoral reform 2. Protecting the environment 3. Transportation I want to: Greatly expand our park system including natural and ecologically sensitive lands; restore our roads to good condition and expand our program of traffic calming neighbourhoods; expand our bus system and introduce rapid bus and light rail; reinstate rail passenger service from Langley to Cloverdale and Newton along the existing corridor; work to relocate the BNSF heavy rail from our beaches and inland to accommodate high-speed rail between Surrey and Seattle; manage growth in a way that our schools, hospital and other essential services are not overwhelmed; and reform local city government. The existing first past the post at-large system no longer meets our needs.

Tom Gill (SF)* Occupation: Controller Key Issues: 1. Reducing crime 2. Jobs and new investment 3. Homelessness Born in Kamloops, I moved to Surrey in 1986. In 1988, I graduated from BCIT with a Financial Management Diploma, and later became a Certified Management Accountant. I am the controller of Coast Foundation Society, the largest non-profit mental health agency in B.C. First elected in 2005, I chair Surrey’s Finance and Audit committees. I have worked hard to keep Surrey’s property and business taxes the lowest in the region and ensure tax dollars are used wisely. My wife Pav and I are raising three children in Fraser Heights.

Linda Hepner (SF)* Occupation: Councillor Key Issues: 1. Reducing crime 2. Jobs and new investment 3. Expanded public transit I moved to Surrey in 1983 and worked for the City of Surrey, retiring as Manager of Economic Development prior to election to council in 2005. As chair of the Mayor’s Committee on Investment and Job Creation and the Red Tape Reduction Committee, I believe cities are important job generators, and strong communities provide good economic opportunities for their residents. I am a supporter of our Build Surrey Program, which includes an iconic new library and new city hall and important infrastructure projects in every town centre. Married to Alan, we have three sons, and three grandchildren.

Gill 22 Occupation: Truck driver, janitor Key issues: 1. Ward system 2. Income not enemies 3. Love and respect Born in Fort St. John, raised in Surrey. Thanks to family, friends, co-workers, teachers, judges and all officers for all your help. Surrey sucks, we got nothing but shootings, stabbings, drugs, dirty hookers, one-eyed politicians, street racing, piracy, cheap labour, single moms and one hospital. We need a ward system, cheaper gas, more medical services, schools not jail cells, education, communication, love, respect, time for each other and our loved ones. Vote for your rights.We need help, thanks for your time.

Judy Higginbotham Occupation: Business consultant 1. Building complete, sustainable and well-planned communities 2. A fairer deal in all transportation systems for Surrey 3. Keeping taxes and utilities low and affordable As an independent councillor, I will listen to your concerns and ensure that you have a strong voice on council. We have many solutions to the challenges of rapid growth, such as diverse housing forms, and safer streets. We can always build smarter. We can lower your taxes. We can ensure that town centres are better planned with accessible and affordable transportation options. We have to be more aggressive in ensuring schools are built when children are there and we need more cultural opportunities for families and seniors in our town centres to balance our quality recreation centres and playing fields.

Paul Griffin Occupation: Business owner Key issues: 1. Rapid transit – Surrey deserves SkyTrain 2. Tax windfall profits of re-zoning speculators 3. A truly independent voice on council Surrey’s truly independent candidate is not beholden to big unions or big developers. I believe Surrey can do better. We must manage growth more carefully, while protecting our natural environment. I am former president of the Sunnyside Acres Heritage Society and developed the motto “Surrey – City of Parks.” As B.C’.s second-largest city, Surrey must take the lead in developing creative solutions. Let’s get rid of the fancy brochures and political platitudes, roll up our sleeves and make Surrey better.

Gary Hoffman Occupation: Special provincial constable Key issues: 1. Transportation, roads and transit 2. Responsible growth and infrastructure expansion 3. Crime prevention, public safety and policing I strongly believe Surrey can continue to economically grow and become a better place. In order to achieve this we need responsible growth that will also incorporate the expansion of our infrastructure, recreational and outdoor facilities and meet the needs of citizens and business alike. I recognize vital issues such as roads and transit need to be addressed, but I believe it is essential to maintain effective, efficient government without program cuts, unnecessary tax increases, or hidden fees. I believe in spending our tax dollars responsibly.

Lawrence Chen

Candidate did not provide requested photo or information

Doug Elford (SCC) Occupation: Environmental protection officer Key issues: 1. Protecting our parkland and environment 2. Improved transit links 3. Better neighbourhood participation in council decisions I entered politics because of the degradation of my neighbourhood. Current council is not listening. We need a system where residents are involved in decisions. Surrey needs to do a better job of planning neighbourhoods, preserving parkland and protecting our environment. If elected, I will work towards building a vibrant, involved, sustainable and safe city where all citizens have input into council decisions. My public sector background has prepared me for this role. I know the system.

#8 - 2970 King George Blvd. South Surrey

Marvin Hunt (SF)* Occupation: Councillor Key issues: 1. Reducing crime 2. Holding the line on taxes 3. Jobs and new investment A Surrey resident for 30 years, I have been a member of council since 1988. A vibrant downtown core emerging as part of the Build Surrey Program – this remarkable re-development will redefine Surrey, attract new investment and create an environment where businesses will thrive in our city. Given that no land has been removed from the ALR for development over the past six years shows that we have struck the right balance between growth and the preservation of farmland and green space. My wife Ruth and I raised six children in Newton and now live in Fleetwood.

Imtiaz Popat Occupation: Counsellor Key issues: 1. Revitalize the south Fraser River banks for more community access and no trucking highway 2. More accessible and affordable transit 3. More recycling programs for both residents and businesses I am a co-op radio host and a social advocate. I haves studied media communications at the Art Institute and have a certificate in counselling skills from Vancouver Community College. I am advocating against the industrialization of Surrey by the development of the South Fraser Perimeter Road, which will damage communities and ecology along its path. I would like to see more accountability of businesses and industry around waste management to make Surrey more ecologically sustainable.

Bernadette Keenan Occupation: Plan reviewer Key issues: 1. Shifting infrastructure investments from pavement projects to green job initiatives and transit 2. Social justice issues, particularly a living wage and affordable housing 3. Waterfront enhancement in North Surrey A mother, Surrey resident, union member, and environmental activist, I am passionate about healthy communities both environmentally and economically. Let’s protect unique ecosystems such as salmon habitat from damage by construction of the South Fraser Perimeter Road and safeguard the health of our children, seniors and residents from increased pollution. Transfer funding from this pavement project to transit initiatives like Interurban rail for more jobs.

Barinder Rasode (SF)* Occupation: Councillor Key Issues: 1. Expanded public transit 2. Reducing crime 3. Parks and recreation I grew up in Kamloops and have been a resident of Surrey for 23 years. Prior to being elected to council in 2008, I studied at SFU and worked for the Professional Employees Association. Since 80 per cent of the commuting trips that start south of the Fraser end south of the Fraser, I strongly support our transportation plan that calls for light rail as part of the public transit choices Surrey residents have as they move in and around our community. I live in Clayton where I am raising three children.

Mary Martin (SF)* Occupation: Councillor Key Issues: 1. Reducing crime 2. Parks and recreation 3.Jobs and new investment I have lived in Surrey for 20 years with husband Tony and our three children. Since being elected in 2005, I worked for the new 94-bed sobering centre in Surrey to provide new beds for people with addictions. I am a strong supporter of our innovative Crime Reduction Strategy and, as chair of the Parks Recreation and Culture Committee, the new recreation facilities we are building in every part of Surrey.

Grant Rice (SCC) Occupation: Student and consultant Key issues: 1. Accountability – We are taking on too much debt during volatile economic times 2. Transparency – Too many decisions are taking place behind closed doors 3. Accessibility – Citizens need better access to their elected officials Surrey needs a comprehensive municipal audit. When Surrey sold phase one of Campbell Heights in 2003 for 15 cents on a dollar, they passed a resolution at 10 a.m. on a Thursday before taking their summer break. The 2010 $97-million debt for city hall? Same time of year and same vote results. Tens of millions in land transfers at book value to the Surrey City Development Corporation? Passed by resolution. I plan to investigate.

Continued from page 22 Gary Robinson (SCC) Occupation: (Not provided) Key issues: 1. Open and accountable city council to the public 2. No tolls, no giant garbage incinerator 3. Have council work with school board to solve crushed and overcrowded schools. If elected I will be a strong voice for Surrey. I will fight for the little guy as I have always done. I have lived in Surrey for 46 years. I believe council should represent us, not rule us. I oppose tolled bridges, I support better planning and accountability at city hall. I will not support a garbage truck freeway to a giant regional garbage burner in Surrey. I will work hard for you, the residents and I will always let you know where I stand. I am honoured to ask for your support for myself and SCC.

Stephanie Ryan (SCC) Occupation: Organizing representative Key issues: 1. Unacceptable transit service levels in Surrey 2. Getting more schools built for Surrey 3. Protecting our environment and green spaces as we grow I’ve lived in Surrey for 25 years. I have an honours degree from UBC. I work as an organizing representative for the BCGEU. I’ve served on the Public Art Advisory Committee since 2008. I volunteer with Big Sisters and Sunnyside Acres Heritage Society. I write a regular column on Surrey issues for The Georgia Straight. Surrey’s growth should respect our environment and make public transit more viable. We need to work together to build more schools and to get our share of transit dollars.

Barbara Steele (SF)* Occupation: Councillor Key issues: 1. Safer streets 2. Preserving green space and farmland 3. Expanded public transit First elected in 1998, I chair the Public Safety Committee and I have been working hard for safer neighbourhoods across Surrey through the implementation of our innovative Crime Reduction Strategy. Since 2005, 1,254 growops have been shut down and violent crime is down 20 per cent over the past three years. I am the president of the Union of B.C. Municipalities and I also chair the Focus on Seniors Committee, and serve on the Finance Committee, the Downtown Surrey BIA. A mother of three grown children with a granddaughter, I have lived in Guildford for 34 years.

Mike Robinson Occupation: (Not provided) Key Issues: 1. Voter apathy 2. Kids’ activity infrastructure 3. Planning and development My platform can best be described as electoral reform. I feel that modern technology allows for a more modern, more participatory form of democracy. I propose to build a website where voters may vote on issues before council. They may vote on every issue, select issues that affect them, or none at all. Eventually, I would like if one seat at council was strictly the “people’s vote.” I propose to be that seat in the meantime. I will vote with the people regardless of my personal views. I will be a true “Proxy for the People.”

Partap Bir Singh Occupation: Self-employed Key issues: 1. Accountability and clarity for citizens 2. Strong voice for common i.e. having fair share of services including health, education and transportation 3. Planning and fair representation for all residents of Surrey I am a common citizen of Surrey who has started from hard labour to working along international scientist. I felt that a common man’s voice was not heard in civic affairs and the democratic process was hijacked. I ran in 2008 and over 10,000 of you supported me. I promise you as I have done in last three years, I will keep your voice heard, loud and strong. Whatever it takes. I have been open to all possible means to make sure your voice is heard. Recent education funding proved that every citizen matters. Together We can do it!

Susan Thomas Occupation: Business owner Key issues: 1. A $94-million city hall construction – why were citizens of Surrey not consulted? 2. Transportation – freedom to move, traffic congestion, road maintenance and mass transit dysfunctionality 3. Re-evaluate a ward system I am a 30-year resident, award winner and business owner in Surrey. I am a Surrey Board of Trade Board director and a community volunteer for homeless and crime prevention issues. My platform is simple: accountability, representation and livability. I support responsible government – minimizing waste and red tape while maximizing resources. My common sense and budget-minded approach make me the best candidate for city council. I believe we need a fresh face and someone that thinks outside the box.

SURREY: Candidates for city council Continued from page 23 Judy Villeneuve (SF)* Occupation: Councillor Key Issues: 1. Homelessness 2. Preserving farmland and green space 3. Reducing crime I have been a Surrey resident for 41 years and husband Michael and I have two sons and two grandsons. A member of council for 23 years, I strongly supported the development of Surrey’s groundbreaking Sustainability Charter and Ecosystem Management Strategy as well as the innovative Crime Reduction Strategy. I am proud that Surrey was the first city in B.C. to establish a Homelessness and Housing Foundation with a $9-million endowment. I am vice-chair of Metro Vancouver’s Housing Committee and Surrey’s Public Art Committee. I was the Pacific Co-ordinator for the Writers’ Union of Canada for two decades. I live in Crescent Beach.

John Milton Wolanski Occupation: (Not provided) Key issues: 1. Affordable housing. This must be first on the list. Designate mobile home parks as part of the initiative 2.

Steve Wood (SCC) Occupation: Independent consultant/ contract work Key issues: 1. Public transportation – advocate for light rail and more buses 2. Advocating for youth – more parks and recreation and sports programs 3. Improved local democracy and neighbourhood consultation I’m experienced, elected twice in Campbell River. My family and I moved here in 2000. I’ve volunteered and mentored children through Whalley Baseball, North Surrey Football and soccer. Youth represent 30 per cent of our population, they’re our future and deserve advocates. It’s not happening. We’re the fastest-growing city but without funding for school construction and too many portables. We need genuine leadership. I’m listening and offer commitment, determination and backbone to deliver results. Increased taxes, tolling bridges and failing transit are not acceptable. We can do better.

Real estate hottest in Surrey Surrey has been rated the hottest market for housing investment in the province by the Real Estate Investment Network (REIN). The real-estate research organization this week released its latest report on the top cities and towns in B.C. for real estate investment. The report titled Top British Columbia Investment Towns 2011, analyzes the current and future prospects for real estate investment opportunities across the province, and identifies the top regions that will outperform in the coming decade. The findings are based on research, statistical analysis, trends and on-the-ground reports from REIN’s research staff and members, along with reports from organizations such as Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation, Statistics Canada, Multiple Listing Service, Canadian Home Builders Association, city and regional real estate boards and local economic development offices. Anita Huberman, CEO of the Surrey Board of Trade, said she is unsurprised by the findings. “We’re doing everything we can to make sure Surrey is a great place to invest,” Huberman said Tuesday. “So, it does not come as a surprise.” That said, she believes now is no time for complacency. “I don’t think Surrey in its current economic climate has the ability or the time to rest on its laurels,” she said. “I think more needs to be done.” The REIN report looks at such factors as: population growth; infrastructure; job creation; economic benefit; political leadership and transportation improvements. The top towns ranked in the report (in order) are: Surrey, Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows, Kamloops, Abbotsford, Fort St. John, Dawson Creek, Kelowna, Comox Valley, Penticton, Prince George and Vancouver.

Premier Christy Clark and senior B.C. cabinet ministers are seeing plenty of competition as they visit China this week in search of trade deals. Clark is taking part in B.C.’s largest-ever trade mission to Asia, trying to expand on B.C.’s recent success developing the lumber market in China. And whether the product is liquefied natural gas, lumber or tourism, there are many other countries doing the same. “Competition is stiff,” Clark said in a conference call Monday from Shanghai. “The world is in turmoil, and everybody’s coming to China.” Deals announced after four days of the trade mission include an agreement for a touring show of photos from B.C.’s gold

George before it opens at the Hong Kong Museum of History in early 2013. Jobs, Tourism and Innovation Minister Pat Bell said the biggest business deal announced on the trip so far is Sichuan Airlines starting three flights a week to Vancouver next year. It translates to 37,000 passenger seats a year, and is the airline’s first destination in North America. Clark defended the political component of the tour, saying business executives can’t crack the Chinese market without government representation alongside. The current delegation includes delegates from 130 companies, schools and other organizations. Clark is continuing on to India after the China portion of the trip. Bell goes to Hong Kong and Forests Minister Steve Thomson goes from China to Japan.

Optimal HEALTH & FITNESS No Allow us to mayors help you sign tax achieve both pledges Jeff Nagel

A Truly One of A Kind “Unique Bracelet” with glass bead for the introductory price of $99

Trollbeads Tr llbeads TrollbeadsCanada Trollbeads Canada.com .com

Black Press

No sitting mayors in the Lower Mainland have signed a pledge to keep a lid on property taxes being pushed by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation. The organization on Monday released a list of 86 council candidates across B.C. who have signed its “contract with taxpayers” with less than two weeks left in the campaign. Most are challengers, often rightof-centre independents or slate members. Langley Township, where three incumbent councillors seeking re-election have signed, is one of the few places pledge advocates have made inroads with local politicians who are already governing. In Vancouver, four Non-Partisan Association candidates for council are among the six candidates who signed, but none yet hold a council seat. Three signed in Surrey – two mayoral candidates hoping to topple sitting Mayor Dianne Watts and one independent council candidate. Five members of the right-of-centre Team Burnaby slate have also signed, including the mayoral candidate who hopes to defeat longserving Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan. The CTF “contract” requires those signing to pass a bylaw imposing a 15 per cent council pay cut if property taxes are raised beyond the rate of inflation without a referendum. Several Metro Vancouver-area incumbents said they wouldn’t sign because it could tie councils’ hands in responding to future financial challenges. The Canadian Federation of Independent Business has also urged civic leaders to pledge to hold spending growth to the combined rise in population and inflation and narrow the gap between business and residential tax rates. About 30 candidates have taken that pledge and only a handful are incumbents.

He was just 16 in March 2005, when he struck Grant De Patie in a stolen car while fleeing an Esso station in Maple Ridge without paying for gas. Pratt dragged the 24-year-old under the car for 7.5 kilometres.

TIPS TO PROTECT YOUR LOCAL CREEKS AND STREAMS

During the next few months there is going to be a lot of rain. After it falls rain goes, untreated, down the storm drain straight to streams and creeks taking harmful chemicals and pollutants with it. Everyone needs to do their part to help protect the local streams and creeks because salmon and trout need a clean and healthy habitat. By taking preventative measures and making environmentally wise choices you can prevent pollution from reaching local streams and creeks.

FISH TIPS

1

The rain washes dirt and oil from driveways down the storm drain, so make sure when you clean your driveway that you direct all dirt and water onto your grass as it acts as a natural filter.

2

If you see a storm drain covered with debris, take a second and clear it off. This will prevent flooding and keep the debris from going down the storm drain which can affect fish habitat.

ONLY RAIN DOWN THE STORM DRAIN IF YOU SEE A SPILL CALL 604-590-7226

The Mayor and Council must work together to run the municipality like a business, thinking smart, using forward thinking and demanding nothing less than the best to ensure everyone in the community will benefit.

Arts Reporter

The Peace Arch Weavers and Spinners Guild may be based in Cloverdale these days, but it’s been part of the fabric of the Semiahmoo Peninsula culture for 45 years. That’s why it’s appropriate that the guild celebrates the anniversary by continuing to present its popular annual showcase and sale, Fibre Flare, at Ocean Park Hall. The 2011 edition comes to the hall (1577 128 St.) Saturday and Sunday – 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. – offering a juried selection of knitted, woven and spun items perfect for Christmas gifts, including handmade wearable art, bags and baskets, knitted and felted items, handspun wool and fibre-based jewelry, as well as demonstrations by artisan members of the guild and a silent auction. Guild historian Elizabeth Davies said it has evolved from a

Team’s only loss came against West Point Grey Academy

Titans perfect

Storm fifth at soccer provincials Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

A single loss in the third game of the tournament was all that bumped the Southridge Storm’s senior boys soccer team from contention at single-A provincials last week in Kamloops. “It was a brief but crucial blip,� said Southridge head coach Gordon Smith, of his squad’s 3-1 loss to Vancouver’s West Point Grey Academy Grey Wolves. Prior to the loss to the Wolves, the Storm – who were seeded first in their four-team pool – had beaten Enderby’s A.L. Fortune 2-0 Thursday to begin the tournament, and followed with a 5-1 win over Osoyoos. The loss to the Grey Wolves knocked them from contention; the 16-team tournament was formatted in such a way that only pool-winners had a shot at finishing in the top four spots overall. Those who finished second in the four pools then battled for spots fifth through eighth. “We need a tie or a win against West Point Grey in order to finish first, and we had a chance to take the lead in that game when it was tied 1-1, but it didn’t

happen, and then they came back and scored and that was it,� Smith said. “It was a bit of an upset, but that’s what happens sometimes.� Alex Huxtable had the lone Storm goal in the loss, and he had four in the tourney – he scored a hat trick against Osoyoos. Against A.L. Fortune in the opener, Alex Dobbie led the way with both goals, while Josh Mays-Quinn earned the shutout in net. In the fifth-place game, Southridge edged Langley’s Credo Christian 1-0. Though they had hoped to finish in the top three spots, Smith was still happy with a top-five finish. “After the first day, we were hearing from other people who thought we had a chance to win it, and we’d seen the other teams, too, and were feeling good about our chances,� he said. Southridge also won Fraser Valley championships in October, which Smith called “a significant achievement.� “Last year, the team didn’t qualify for provincials at all, and the year before we were 16th, so this gets the program back on the right track.�

The White Rock-South Surrey Titans midget football team capped a perfect season Sunday with a 20-10 win over the North Surrey Bears. The win locked up firstplace in the Vancouver Mainland Football League for the Titans, who finished the year with a sparkling 10-0 record; the undefeated mark is the best-ever in Titans’ association history. The first-place finish gives the Titans a bye through the first round of playoffs, which start this weekend. The midget team is one of three Titans’ squads to qualify for VMFL playoffs; the atom and peewee teams also finished in the topeight during the regular season, thus earning a playoff berth. Quarterfinals begin this weekend for the latter two teams. The atom Titans play 10 a.m. Sunday at Bear Creek Park against the North Surrey Lions, while the peewees play the Westside Warriors Sunday at noon, at South Surrey Athletic Park. - Nick Greenizan

Mariners qualify for soccer provincials Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The Earl Marriott Mariners are heading to senior boys soccer provincials – and they may even head there as Fraser Valley champions when all is said and done. Despite being undermanned in the beginning, the EMS senior squad rolled through the first three Fraser Valley championship games, and is set for the championship tilt tonight (Thursday) against Enver Creek. The Mariners, ranked 11th out of 16 teams, opened the valley tournament with a 4-1 win over Abbotsford on Nov. 1 – and they won despite playing

without a top scorer and top defender – both injured – as well as two other key players who had to miss the game due to prior academic commitments. In their second game, they defeated North Surrey 5-1 – led by a three-goal outburst from Karim Afilal – which was enough to qualify them for the provincial tournament. “The boys are in heaven right now,” said coach Nathalie LaRoche after the game. In semifinals Monday, Marriott beat Coquitlam’s Terry Fox Secondary 6-1 to advance to finals. Senior boys soccer provincials are scheduled for Nov. 24-26 in Burnaby Lake.

Let’s do it, White Rock! Let’s make White Rock a happy, healthy and safe place to live, work and play. Let’s spruce-up the waterfront and make the beach a sign-free, fun-filled place to be. Let’s reduce pay parking. Let’s enhance the decal program with ‘walkers decals’ and ‘diners decals.’ Let’s reduce our taxpayers’ burden by searching for creative revenue generators. Let’s include our citizens in the decisionmaking process at city hall.

Among the honorees were Graeme Huguet of My House Design/Build Team for RenoMark Renovator Member of the Year, and Adera Development Corporation for BuiltGreen Multi-Family Builder of the Year. “The awards honour association members for their exceptional level of volunteer commitment and dedication to enhancing the professionalism of the homebuilding and renovation industries in the Greater Vancouver area,” says GVHBA President and CEO Peter Simpson.

‘There are no bad views’

Celadon an impressive sight in Coquitlam by Kerry Vital

The community of Windsor Gate in Coquitlam will soon welcome its newest addition, Celadon by Polygon Homes. The 27-storey tower is just minutes from Coquitlam Centre, and will feature exterior details such as custom metal grillwork and brick cladding. The architecture is inspired by the distinctive style of Frank Lloyd Wright, with sleek expanses of glass and an over-height lobby that will feature a beautiful stained glass panel that is currently on display in the presentation centre. Surrounded by the early phases of the community, you won’t have to go far to find everything you could possibly need. Past developments at Windsor Gate include Larkin House, Roycroft and Kensal Walk. “You get all the benefits of a masterplanned community,” says Polygon Vice-President of Marketing Goldie Alam. “It’s really feeling special here right now.” One of the most exciting things about Celadon is the huge amount of natural light that every suite will feature. It’s apparent from the show suite that the large windows and airy floorplans are tailor-made to harness every drop of sunlight, even in the sometimes-rainy Lower Mainland. Homeowners will never get tired of what is outside their window. “There are no bad views,” Alam says. You’ll be able to savour that view on your own private deck, standard in every home. The space is perfect for a morning cup of coffee or a relaxing afternoon with a good book. The high-quality finishings that

It’s a quiet little enclave. I don’t think you can get the value anywhere else,” says Polygon Vice-President of Marketing Goldie Alam.

Polyon is known for are sprinkled everywhere. From the natural imported marble countertops and backsplashes in the bathrooms to the sleek undercabinet lighting in the kitchens, no detail has been overlooked. Impressive gourmet kitchens include smooth stone countertops, flat-panel custom cabinetry and large-format porcelain tile flooring. Stainless-steel appliances are standard in every home, and a full-height glass tile backsplash contributes to the feeling of modern elegance. Plush nylon carpeting is featured throughout the living areas, which perfectly fits with whichever one of

the three available colour schemes you choose. The ceilings are over eight feet tall (eight feet in the kitchen), meaning you’ll never feel cramped or squashed in any room. Your ensuite bathroom is made for luxury, with a soaker tub standard in every home and oversized vanity mirrors lit by recessed lighting. The cabinets are built to appear to float above the floor, and are complemented by polished chrome hardware. Even the doors are spectacular, with sliding or swinging patio doors onto the balcony and a contemporary solid wood entrance door that is outfitted with polished chrome hardware. More than 40 of the 187 twobedroom homes were sold over the opening weekend, and since then the number has reached over 70. Suites range from approximately 758 to 1,002 square feet. Residents at Celadon will have access to a meeting room, lounge and a fitness studio, as well as Windsor Gate’s amenities building, the Nakoma Club. This 18,000-square-foot building holds a gym, screening room and an outdoor pool, as well as a meeting room and a basketball court. At Windsor Gate, you are just minutes from all types of amenities, including shopping, schools, transit and restaurants, so you won’t need to

venture far outside of the community. Owners will receive a year’s worth of one-zone transit passes when they purchase their home. Homes at Celadon start at $324,900. For more information visit www.polyhomes. com/community/celadon–apartments– coquitlam or call 604-552-7744.
