Anonymous opinions posted by civic candidates

Politicians coy over online comments Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Two of three politicians – including a sitting White Rock councillor – who confirmed they have commented on issues and people anonymously online at first denied participating in the practice. In initial conversations with Peace Arch News this week, both Coun. Helen Fathers and council hopeful Cliff Annable said they believed it’s better if it’s clear where any comments they post at www.peacearchnews.com

are coming from. “If I’m responding to a comment, I want people to know it’s me,” Fathers said Wednesday. “I suppose everybody has the right to be

anonymous, but it’s hard to actually solve issues and really talk about issues if you don’t really know who the person is.” “If you’re gonna make a comment, put your

name to it,” Annable said Tuesday, noting attribution is especially important on negative remarks. PAN raised the issue this week after noticing links between anonymous comments and some of the city’s candidates for council in the Nov. 19 civic election, with some of the comments quite petty. The issue of politicians making comments under pseudonyms became a hot one in White Rock after the 2008 civic election.  see page 4

Ex-presidents in town

Media banned from Bush visit Kevin Diakiw Black Press

The media will be locked out of the appearance of former presidents George Bush and Bill Clinton at today’s Surrey Regional Economic Summit, organizers say. It’s the first time in the summit’s four-year history that reporters and photographers are being shut out. A release sent Thursday by the Pace Group, which organizes the event, notes “the president’s session at 12:45 p.m. is only open to ticket holders of the summit. Media will not have access to this session.” There will be no video feed or other recording of the event. The presence of Bush has created controversy among critics who accuse him of war crimes, specifically allowing torture. Last week, Amnesty International called for the arrest of Bush when he touches down in Canada. And a group called Occupy Surrey is generating interest in creating a huge protest outside the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford this morning. A Twitter account called OccupySurrey challenged Mayor Dianne Watts to cancel Bush’s appearance. Police anticipate a huge group of protesters at the hotel and are expecting to shut down two blocks of 104 Avenue for the crowd. A meet-and-greet approach to the crowd – as was done on 72 Avenue during the Stanley Cup Playoffs – is planned by Surrey RCMP.

invasion. The busy thoroughfare was reopened about an hour later. While police did not locate any weapons in the home – which has driveway access from 26 Avenue – they did find a small marijuana grow operation. Two Surrey residents – a 42-year-old male and a 59-year-old female – were arrested at the

scene, and investigation is ongoing. The house is just two blocks from where police discovered an apparent drug lab on Oct. 6. During a search of that home, police found several dozen “covertly and indiscriminately” placed booby traps. A 58-year-old man was arrested in connection with that discovery. – Tracy Holmes

news Campbell Heights location ‘has definitely been discussed by council,’ Bose says

Incinerator plan pitched in South Surrey Kevin Diakiw and Jeff Nagel Black Press

A waste incinerator for South Surrey has been considered by city council, which was willing to sell land in north Campbell Heights to a developer interested in building a waste-to-energy facility there. Aquilini Renewable Energy secured an option – which has since lapsed – to purchase 25 acres of city land near 32 Avenue and 196 Street in north Campbell Heights, subject to the site being approved for a regional waste incinerator. Mayoral candidate Ross Buchanan said council approved the concept some time ago, and he’s using it as one of his lead issues in the coming election. Buchanan said he’s pleased to hear the option has lapsed, but he has no doubt it will be back on the table after the election. Some Surrey councillors said Tuesday that they knew nothing about it, even though they were presented with the particulars in the summer. “We sell property to many people for many things,” said Coun. Barinder Rasode, adding she seems to remember something about the

Aquilini sale. “I’m vaguely aware of that.” Coun. Linda Hepner said it’s news to her. “I have no idea what you’re talking about,” Hepner said. “I wouldn’t support a waste-toenergy incinerator (in that area).” However, Black Press has learned the option to purchase was presented to council behind closed doors in the spring. Aquilini president John Negrin said the firm is at a very preliminary stage of locating a waste-to-energy plant. “We’ve looked around the Lower Mainland at candidate sites,” Negrin said. “The one at Campbell Heights could be a potential. It’s an option for consideration that has not been executed.” Negrin pointed out the siting of a plant is entirely up to Metro Vancouver. “This is their project and this is their decision.” Aquilini is also considering a site on Tsawwassen First Nation land. Coun. Barbara Steele said she can’t remember the discussion to offer Aquilini the property but noted the majority of council is in favour of hosting an incinerator in the city. “We want waste-to-energy in Surrey, there’s no question about that,” Steele said. “It’s not

Unanimous support

Arts centre on track Surrey City Council unanimously voted Monday to use a two-phased expansion plan to boost arts and culture space on the Semiahmoo Peninsula. The Build Surrey Program and the new Culture Plan will help establish the city’s role as a leader in the arts community, Mayor Dianne Watts said in a news release. “We want to further establish Surrey as a cultural hub in the region, and our community partners are helping us shape and implement that vision,” Watts said. Community art groups in South Surrey unanimously supported the concept of a phased approach, according to the city. The first phase will kick off in 2012 with a 3,500- to 4,000-squarefoot expansion to the South Surrey Recreation Centre, which could accommodate an office for the Semiahmoo Arts Society, a pottery studio and a visual arts studio. To help finance the expansion, the South Surrey White Rock Arts Society has raised and will be donating $250,000 in exchange for free facility use for monthly meetings and annual art sales. The new arts centre – which will be located on 152 Street – will be the second phase of the arts and culture expansion. The creation of the centre is expected to take between three to five years. Once completed, the facility will be home to a performing arts and visual arts space, as well as instructional and studio areas. The Culture Plan also includes a recommendation to complete the second phase of the Surrey Museum, which includes 3,500 sq. ft in additional space for collections storage, an exhibition preparation workshop and a temporary exhibition gallery. – Sarah Massah

Surrey council will examine truck traffic at request of neighbours

32 Avenue residents win city support After months of lobbying by a group of South Surrey residents, Surrey City Council has agreed to take a step towards removing truck traffic from 32 Avenue. A motion to request that TransLink remove the truck-route designation on 32 Avenue was approved by all council members Monday, however, one councillor warned any changes to the thoroughfare are unlikely “to happen overnight.” “The motion is in response to concerns raised by community members, but there is no certainty at all that TransLink will remove the designation,” Coun. Bob Bose told Peace Arch News Wednesday. Earlier Monday, a group calling themselves the 32nd Avenue Alliance made a presentation to council highlighting their concerns with the

large amount of diesel trucks using the route to and from Campbell Heights industrial park. The main concerns of the group – formed earlier this year, comprised of residents in Morgan Creek, Rosemary Heights, Kensington Prairie and Grandview Heights – are public safety, public health and noise. Alliance co-chair and Surrey mayoral candidate Ross Buchanan said the group was very happy with the outcome. “We’ve been trying for a year to have the opportunity to speak directly to our mayor and council,” Buchanan said. “We’re really absolutely pleased that the mayor and council stepped up to the leadership role on this.” Buchanan said the group is “highly optimistic” that TransLink will remove the truck-route designation along 32 Avenue. He

also defended the city, noting it was “dealing with a mistake that was made years ago,” when the plans for development in Campbell Heights were initially made. Bose agreed that the underlying issue that needs to be addressed is the traffic generated by the many warehouses at Campbell Heights, pointing to a motion he put forth two weeks ago suggesting a traffic-impact analysis be done before any further development is approved in the area. “We need to take a look at the development in Campbell Heights and understand what traffic it will generate,” he said. “There was never a traffic analysis done there.” That motion, Bose said, was referred to staff for further review. -Melissa Smalley

White Rock mayor not running in next month’s election

‘Important work’ ahead for Ferguson at hospice Alex Browne Staff Reporter

The mystery of White Rock Mayor Catherine Ferguson’s next career step is over. The mayor – who has chosen not to run for re-election in next month’s municipal race – will instead become executive director of the White Rock South Surrey Hospice Society. And she says she is looking forward to her new role guiding the organization, which provides emotional, practical and spiritual support to individuals, families and friends who are facing advanced illness or bereavement. Ferguson’s appointment will be effective Feb. 1, on the retirement of current executive director Yvon Thibeault. “He’s leaving some very big shoes to fill,” Ferguson told Peace Arch News last week, in announcing the appointment with Thibeault and society president Rick Singh at the Hospice House headquarters. Ferguson paid tribute to the work Thibeault has done in three years as executive director, particularly in building awareness of the society, forging partnerships in the community and laying the groundwork for the 30 year-old organization’s next big step, building a planned hospice residence and supportive care centre adjacent to Peace Arch Hospital. “I’m really excited to be going forward with the work that needs to be done,” Ferguson said, adding she feels she can use her own experience, and the many working relationships she has established in her time as councillor and mayor to the benefit of the society. “We need to work with partners to be successful,” she said. “I’ve always been a big sup-

Catherine Ferguson is leaving politics for a new position at the White Rock South Surrey Hospice Society. porter of the hospice movement since I first became aware of it in my mid-20s, when my mother died. I know first hand how important it is not just to patients, but also to families.” The society now includes 300 volunteers, she noted, plus 10 paid staff, who annually achieve what it would take a private company millions to accomplish. “It takes a very special person to care for people the way the volunteers do,” she added. “I’m honoured to be chosen to be executive director – it’s important work,” she said. “To be making a contribution to the community is something that’s important to me, because that’s who I am.” Singh said Ferguson’s “profile,

connections and commitment to the community” will be a great advantage to the society. He said that although the board was aware Thibeault had been having discussions with a potential successor, they did not know who it was until this week. “We were thrilled,” Singh said. “There was overwhelming support from the board. He was putting the society’s best interests first in terms of where the society needs to go, and we are very grateful for that.” Thibeault said the appointment of Ferguson is particularly timely given the society is now moving into its 30th year with a major project – the residence and supportive care facility – on its agenda. More details of that project will be released to the public at the society’s AGM, Tuesday Oct. 25, 7 p.m. at Mount Olive Lutheran Church, 2350 148 St., he said. Although Thibeault told Peace Arch News “nothing is set in stone,” a verbal commitment from Fraser Health staff indicates that it plans to make land available for the project, which would allow the society to realize more capital from sale of its current properties on Russell Avenue. An earlier plan to build the facility on the current three parcels was judged to be premature, Thibeault said, “It’s a three- to five-year project that is going to require a lot of work,” he said, adding that he is passing on to Ferguson his vision of a hospice facility that provides a high profile focus to the organization, as well as maximizing usable space for more residential care and support. “We don’t have the space,” Thibeault said. “This place is bursting at the seams.”

A number of years ago, my elderly mother transferred her house into my brother’s name, my name, and her name to save the costs of probate. I have discovered that my brother has been very bad with his money management, and he owes nearly $100,000 in debts, has no job or significant assets except a house that is mortgaged to the hilt. The creditors are taking legal action against him. I went to a lawyer to get him to prepare documents transferring my brother’s share of the house to my mother and he refused. Why?

An awakening occupation

T

he protesters occupying financial districts around the world are expressing a growing frustration that governments and their financial policies are losing touch with the people they’re supposed to serve. Instead, they say, the rich are getting richer while the rest are being left behind. The voices of discontent and disaffection first gathered and rose up on New York’s Wall Street, where they denounced taxpayer-funded bailouts of huge financial institutions that were supposed to correct mistakes they’d made but instead lined executives’ pockets with huge bonuses. The protests have since spread to countries where years of corruption or short-sighted policy have put economies in peril, costing people their livelihoods, darkening the prospects for future generations. It might be easy to dismiss such concerns in Canada, where the economy and unemployment levels have been fairly stable since the last recession. The thousands of protesters who filled Robson Square in Vancouver and Bay Street in Toronto on Saturday petered down to a few hundred on Monday. But our politicians should pay attention. The gulf between the haves and have-nots is growing. Everywhere. For most working people, wages have stagnated over the past five years while the cost of living continues to soar. In Metro Vancouver, a litre of gas costs 25 cents more than it did in October 2010. That 22 per cent increase eventually trickles into everything we consume. A modest, aging bungalow on the Semiahmoo Peninsula now commands almost a million dollars, out of reach for most people earning even a decent income. The middle class is the foundation of economic and political stability around the world. It’s being crushed by corporate greed and the government policy that cultivates it. While most of that middle class may not be downtown sleeping in tents this week, their own fears and frustrations are being awakened by the occupiers.

110 responding have readily accepted. While we still hit the movies once in a while, there are limits to what I’ll buy at the concession. We turn off lights, eat leftovers and use the public library. We’ve even embraced second-hand stores. More often than not, we’ll check the local Salvation Army or Value Village before hitting stores with bigger price tags. Annual savings? Enormous. There are easier things, too. Plan your driving trips so that you’re not going in circles around town. Enjoy free recreation by going for a walk or a hike. Better yet, have the kids return bottles and give them the money to spend as they see fit. It doesn’t take long for children to learn the old rule: easy come, easy go. My son recently returned a highpriced item just hours after buying it. He had buyer’s remorse and I was thrilled because I know he is learning the value of money. At eight, 11 and 13, they deliver papers and do odd jobs to earn extra cash. And it seems we’re on the right track. The realtor told me she recently sold a house to a local man, 22 years old, who has been saving since he was a little boy. “He saved 10 per cent of all he earned, all his life,” she says. That added up to $20,000 for a down payment. “That’s the key,” she said. “Start teaching savings now to your kids, and be consistent.” Now, if mommy could just cut down on that chocolate.

letters Peace Arch News

Canadians not in Bush league Editor: It appears there are various views on whether or not Mayor Dianne Watts should allow George W. Bush to speak at Surrey’s Economic Forum along with the other former president, Bill Clinton. I personally have no problem with either one of these people speaking, although I can’t get my head around the question of why anyone would want to hear what they have to say. America’s finances are in the toilet thanks in part to these two and their policies. Either one could have been influential in keeping strong banking regulations in place. It seems, however, that they were much more interested in the Federal Reserve policies of deregulation. Should anyone be taking their advice, especially in Canada where strict regulations have saved us from the fate of the U.S.? For those who so readily pass flatulence out of their ears, here are a few facts. The pre-emptive strike war on Iraq was predicated on lies told by Bush about weapons of mass destruction that Iraq supposedly had and which could and would threaten America. To my knowledge, there have been five Canadians killed because of this war. This, then, means Bush should be charged for depraved indifference by any federal prosecutor or any prosecutor from a township where one of these individuals resided. Will this happen? Of course not. What will happen is that the repressive arm of the law, the RCMP, will be ordered by Watts to protect Bush and undoubtedly arrest anyone who happens to threaten Watts’ and her cronies’ perspective of reality. Winrich Al Riede, Surrey Q Will we throw shoes? That failed U.S. president George W. Bush – on whose watch neoconservative economics precipitated the 2008 recession and the second wave we are about to enter – should be invited to speak to the Surrey Regional Economic Summit is bizarre enough. Beyond belief is the idea that in Canada, this nation, which invented peace-keeping through United Nations international co-operation, a city should invite a unilateralist U.S. president whose aggressive wars arguably meet the international definition of war crimes and who authorized “special rendition” of Canadians to Third World torture-chambers for “enhanced interrogation.” For those interested in the Bush message on economics, they need simply look to his neoconservative client government in Ottawa, which is following the same path to ruin. What is graver still is the shame of perceived endorsement of a man who has shamed his country and who – in a world where might does not make right –would assuredly be tried before the International Criminal Courts for crimes against humanity and aggressive war.

Will we throw our shoes? Probably not, we’re polite, we’re Canadian. But let our American friends know Bush is not welcome in polite society. Brian D. Marlatt, White Rock

No way to pay for health care Editor: Re: WinFall lottery at ‘dire’ risk of losing money, Oct. 13. I am not surprised that the WinFall lottery and possibly other charities are in financial shortfall. Several other lotteries, people’s running, cycling, paddling to be sponsored, daily phone calls and requests by mail, famine in Somalia, all looking for the public for funding. There is no doubt of the needs or the validity of cause, but perhaps we have reached a point of overload? And we are just before Christmas, with yet another onslaught of pleas for giving, while all of us are concerned about the shaky economy. I would also consider the possibility that people realize how small a fraction of lottery revenues go to the charity after deducting

expenses, and may choose direct contribution with tax deductibility. Here is a novel suggestion: why not increase taxes to cover the finances of all such human and social necessities, instead of having them pursue a form of panhandling? George Zador, Surrey Q To anyone who lives in B.C. and remembers the first Surrey Memorial Lottery way back when, today’s huge raft of lotteries is just overwhelming. When you look at the amount of advertising that comes in glossy brochures through the mail, that appears on nightly television news broadcasts and takes out full-page advertisements in the daily paper, you wonder how on earth these lotteries can even afford to give away $2-3 million dollars worth of prizes. The odds of winning are so limited, anyone with a free $100 bill would do better to invest it in the 6/49. If our government funded our hospitals and bought them new machinery when needed, we wouldn’t have fundraising lotteries – our taxes will be working for us. As it is, expenses for the lottery advertising, overheads and salaries for the organizing staff must make a huge dent in what actually comes

in from purchasers of tickets. Obviously, this time, there is a much better chance of winning when the numbers of tickets purchased is so low, but if it means nothing at all for the hospital, then I urge fundraisers to come up with some new ideas. You are flogging a dead and budget-conscious horse in the general public. Sheila Gair, Surrey Q How can Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation executive director Jackie Smith – or anybody – be surprised that there will be a shortage of money in the WinFall lottery? At any given time there are at least three lotteries going. Who can afford to purchase them? The winning prices are also too high. Why not give smaller ones and more of them; why milliondollar ones instead of less, so more people can enjoy a win? Very few could afford these properties anyway, considering the taxes and upkeep. There are many people who dream, “Oh, when I win this house I will move in and enjoy.” But when you mention the taxes they will have to pay: “Oh, I never thought of that.” Hans Schmidt, Surrey

A South Surrey woman says she is losing hope the Ministry of Labour will recover her payment for three days of work from more than two years ago.

After filing a complaint to the Ministry of Labour in November 2009, she was directed to their employment standards branch.

City land returned to original owner A stretch of property claimed for dedication by the City of White Rock nearly two decades ago will be returned to its owner, council decided this month. The land, at 14847 Prospect Ave., was acquired by the city in 1993. At the time, the lot had been approved for subdivision, on the condition the applicant dedicate a 16-foot width of property on its north side to the city. The dedication enabled the applicant to comply with the city’s subdivision bylaw, which required a minimum lot frontage-to-depth ratio that could not otherwise be met. The dedication was chosen over the more logical step of getting approval for a variance, Paul Stanton, the city’s director of planning and development services told council in an Oct. 3 report. While the property owner sought – and the city apparently agreed – to re-acquire the land in 1998, “for reasons unknown, this never proceeded,” Stanton notes. In recommending council grant a renewed request now – subject to the property owner paying all legal and

Great things come in small packages.

survey costs for road closure and disposition, as was agreed in 1998 – Stanton said there is no need for the city to hold onto it any longer. The property owner plans to build his driveway access on the land in question, he added. “The city has no use for that land dedication,” Stanton said. “We have no intention of widening the lane. It can only be used for accessing this property anyway.” Coun. Helen Fathers questioned if returning the land could start an avalanche of similar requests. Stanton said he didn’t know how many such situations exist in the city, but estimated there may be “a few more.” Mayor Catherine Ferguson asked him to return with a list of any other lots in the city in which similar situations exist. Stanton noted the Prospect Avenue site’s steep topography makes it more of a liability to the city than an asset. The recommendation to return the land to the property owner passed unanimously. - Tracy Holmes

Surrey Fire Services puts women to the test

Feeling the burn When it comes to firefighting, the number of women on the job falls far behind that of men. In Surrey, only two per cent of the individuals responding to calls throughout the city are of the female variety. Officials say part of the challenge for women is in the physical testing – a standard they can’t raise the bar on. In an effort to encourage more women to consider the career, Surrey Fire Services last week invited women to try the same tests they’d have to face in applying for a career with the department.

ring a bottle of water – you might sweat a bit.” Such was the advice of Surrey Fire Services’ Tim Dykeman, days before opening the department’s 64 Avenue training centre to prospective firefighters – and one reporter – interested in going through the paces of the department’s physical test last week. “Some of these are sort of… intense on the upper body.” The truth of the statement – which referred, of course, to the Tracy Holmes various tasks included in reporter the testing – was realized in short order by those who took up the offer, at least one of whom (you guessed it, the reporter) has since realized said muscles are, in fact, sadly lacking as far as firefighter standards are concerned. Let’s just say in the days after partaking, lifting anything above her head was slightly more challenging than usual, particularly when using the right side… or moving, for that matter. Fortunately, other participants with their eye on the career bridged the gap to impressiveness, not only in strength and determination, but in sheer enthusiasm for the task.

Freda Dahms raises a three-section ladder during Surrey Fire Service’s physical testing last week.

‘To help people is pretty amazing’  from page 11 those standards because the job requires us to do pretty much everything we’re simulating here today.” Kelly, a 20-year-old Surrey resident, came out with an aim to benchmarking where she is at physically. She hasn’t applied for a career firefighting position yet, but she’s determined to make the grade when the time comes. “My mind’s set. I just gotta work out to the max,” she said. “I’m really excited to see what I’m capable of.” Unlike this reporter, Kelly was capable of hauling that 190-

pound sled. As was Trish Douglas. The 29-year-old is hoping to start courses at the Justice Institute in January. She initially had her eye on a career with the RCMP, but said she was inspired to change directions by her dad’s 30-year love of firefighting. Douglas said the trial run gave her a good sense of what she needed to work on – the upward hose haul was a challenge for the petite blond – particularly leading up to the Candidate Physical Aptitude Test she’s scheduled to take Oct. 20. But just like all of the women

who turned out that Oct. 11 afternoon, she’s determined. “Just to help people is pretty amazing,” Douglas added. “I think it would be quite a career choice for a lifetime.” Dykeman – noting the afternoon brought a few “happy surprises” as far as abilities seen – said he hopes to offer similar dry runs four times a year. Next time, this reporter will likely just watch. For more on a career with the Surrey Fire Service, visit www. surrey.ca/fireservice or email Dykeman at TDDykeman@ surrey.ca

tailed godwit and the manx shearwater, travel more than 20,000 kilometres annually, and repeat this feat year after year in their lifetimes. Other animals, too, make seasonal journeys. Caitlin Birdsall, of the Vancouver Aquarium, described the longest migration of all mammals, that of the grey whale. This huge baleen whale travels for 11,000 km between the warm waters of the Baja peninsula and its summer feeding grounds in the Arctic’s Bering Sea.

These whales pass regularly through Boundary Bay and can be seen on spring migration off Crescent Beach and in the Georgia Strait. Humpback whales have also returned to the Strait, rebounding in numbers since being hunted out a century ago. Caitlin encouraged everyone to report whale and marine mammals to the BC Cetacean Sightings Network (sightings@vanaqua.org). Fish can also be longdistance travellers. Marvin  see page 16

Salmon rely on healthy river delta  from page 15 Rosenau of BC Institute of Technology explained how the migrant salmon running in the Fraser River are reliant on a healthy delta, including the right levels of sedimentation, dredging, water quality and temperature. All these factors are affected by developments at the mouth of the river and along the banks. After a full weekend of talks

and field trips to wildlife reserves and parks, participants in the conference had recorded more than 100 bird species and taken many beautiful photos. On the final social evening, they were regaled with tales of Russell Cannings’ 2010 big year of birding, during which he had many funny adventures as he successfully challenged the record for the number of birds

lifestyles Youth award highlights selfless teens

Students honoured for community efforts Sarah Massah Black Press

The third annual B.C. Youth Gandhi Awards are honouring two South Surrey students for their tireless community work. Gursimran Rekhi of Sullivan Heights Secondary and Laura Johnston of Earl Marriot Secondary are two of the three students picked this year for their work to better the community. Johnston was nominated by her teacher, Sylvie Horan, in September for her “openness, generosity and empathy” which she displays with her hours of volunteer work in the community. When she heard she had been chosen for the award, Johnston said she was shocked. “I was speechless – it’s so amazing to be recognized. I don’t do all this for awards, I just do it because I love it,” Johnston said. The award was initiated in 2007 by Pummy Kaur, the past president of Peace and Global Educators, and recognizes high school students who exemplify a life of compassion and service to the community, said Kaur. “We really believe it is far better to highlight what children

Laura Johnston, with Earl Marriott teacher Sylvie Horan. do that is positive than to nag at what they do negatively,” said Kaur. “We want these children to be role models, not the ones pushing drugs or the vandals, we want these kinds of kids to be the ones that are looked up to at school, the ones that make people say, ‘I want to be like that.’” Nominees were submitted and then a panel of teachers who are on the PAGE executive sifted through and picked the recipients.

Johnston, Rekhi and Nicole Johnston, of Dr. Knox Secondary in Kelowna, will be presented their awards Oct. 21. The community reaction has been positive, said Kaur. By seeing youth doing positive things it helps dispel misconceptions about them. “People from outside the teachers community are absolutely astounded to find that not all students are rowdies and ruffians and that these students are doing all these amazing things. They are so surprised at the wonderful work and it really shatters the stereotype of teens,” said Kaur. In the past, recipients have included refugees from Columbia, Afghanistan and students from China and India. Despite the varied backgrounds, Kaur said they shared one important point of view. “They all have the common goal to make the world a better place, and not for a reward but because that’s who they really are.” The awards will be presented Friday at 8:30 a.m. at Fraser Heights Secondary, 16060 108 Ave., Surrey.

SOUTH SURREY PRESCHOOL Spaces Still Available for Year Long Preschool! Program Curriculum The City of Surrey’s programs are play-based, built around the belief that children learn naturally through play. We strive to develop a Responsive Curriculum for the children, one that reflects their interests, their concerns and their stages of development. While the child’s focus is the main source of curriculum, other themes exists. The diverse and exciting curriculums are enhanced with a variety of learning centres and open ended activities for free play and exploration. Our curriculum focuses on four areas of development; social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and we value the areas of creativity, exploration and wonder.

The BC Cancer Agency is urging women to get screened for cervical cancer by getting a Pap test during Pap Awareness Week, Oct. 23-29. A Pap test is used to collect a sample of cells from the cervix which is then checked for any abnormal changes; Pap Awareness Week highlights the importance of regular screening. Since the introduction of the program, cervical cancer rates have dropped by 70 per cent. Women who have been putting off getting tested are encouraged to visit LACECampaign.com for a list of clinics that are offering easy access to screening. During last year’s campaign, 16 per cent of women tested had never had a Pap before, and about 50 per cent were overdue.

Scenes like this one could be common place this winter, if the weather is as forecasted.

La Nina weather pattern forecast

Snowier, colder winter expected Jeff Nagel Black Press

Metro Vancouver drivers who save money by forgoing snow tires may want to rethink their strategy this winter. A moderate La Nina weather pattern is expected to bring colder-than-normal temperatures to most of B.C. Environment Canada meteorologist David Jones said that may translate into more snow in the Lower Mainland. “I’d say it’s a good year to get snow tires,” Jones said. “But remember other outcomes are possible.” One U.S. forecaster predicted the typically colder weather pattern from the Pacific Ocean could make this one of the chilliest winters in 20 years for Vancouver. But Jones called it “irresponsible” to go that far in making any predictions. He noted last winter was actually a strong La Nina yet there were few storms, relatively warm

temperatures and less snow than Jones had expected. “Whether it’s saving up to whack us this year, I don’t know,” he said. “It might happen. Is it predictable? I would say no.” The projection is for the 90-day temperature average over the winter to run one to two degrees colder than normal here. That would increase the odds of big dumps of snow in Metro Vancouver, Jones said. While motorists interested in a smooth commute may be frustrated, skiers and local ski hill operators will likely be happy. “La Nina years are typically good for skiers because the snow stays, it doesn’t melt,” Jones said. “The freezing level is persistently lower.” The projection of another La Nina winter came from the U.S. National Weather Service, which noted it brings a strong chance of above-average precipitation across the Pacific Northwest.

KSA chooses to dismiss suit Sheila Reynolds Black Press

A lawsuit against former Kwantlen Student Association directors involving alleged mismanagement of more than $1 million in student fees has been settled. In an online statement dated Sept. 30, KSA president Sean Birdman confirmed the current student group decided to dismiss the case, and that there would be no additional cost to any of the parties involved. “This lawsuit had been a fiveyear process with absolutely no finish line in sight,� wrote Birdman. “Kwantlen students have already funded the battle to the tune of $800,000 in legal fees and

staff time, and there was a very low probability that our council would be victorious in the case to recoup the monies that went into it.� The settlement comes just two months after conflict-of-interest allegations erupted at Kwantlen over decisions being made by KSA members who were elected earlier this year. The new members of the association were accused of postponing the civil suit because two directors were related to one of the defendants. The 2008 lawsuit stemmed from findings of a financial review in 2007. It was alleged the defendants orchestrated $820,000 in unsecured loans, attempted to

use $1 million in the KSA’s health and dental plan to profit personally and paid $20,050 for a party that didn’t happen. Two of the defendants were directors in April when the lawyer handling the lawsuit was let go, spurring the conflict allegations. However, they argued the dismissal was because the lawyer was a friend of a longtime KSA general manager, who was terminated earlier this year after an independent review found “substantive abuses of his position.� The current KSA has hired Deloitte & Touche to conduct a forensic review of the society from 2001 to 2011 in hopes of setting the record straight.

TREE TREASURES SURREY’S

MEET THE TREES OF REDWOOD PARK

Tom Fletcher photo

B.C. Health Minister Mike de Jong gets his flu shot from pharmacist David Pavan Monday.

Redwood Park, with its magnificent arboretum, is tucked away in the south east corner of Surrey and stands as a monument to the Brown family.

Annual flu shot season begins Doctors’ offices, clinics and pharmacies have begun the annual influenza vaccination program, which is free for seniors and children between six and 23 months old. Others eligible for the vaccine at no charge include health-care and emergency workers, caregivers for seniors and children under two years old, pregnant women in their third trimester during winter flu season, aboriginal people and those who are very obese. Other B.C. residents not in high-risk groups can get a flu shot by paying a dispensing fee. The influenza vaccine is formulated each year to target the dominant strains of

the respiratory virus that infects between 10 and 20 per cent of the population each year. The vaccine program was expanded in 2009 with the emergence of the H1N1 strain around the world. With pharmacists trained to provide the injections, about 40 per cent of B.C. residents received the vaccine in the largest mass immunization in Canadian history. There were 55 deaths in B.C. related to H1N1, mostly of people with underlying medical conditions. B.C. residents can find the nearest flu shot clinic by calling HealthLink BC at 811 or using the online B.C. flu clinic locator at www.health.gov.bc.ca/ flu/

Twin brothers, David and Peter Brown, began this stunning collection of trees in 1893 with the Redwood Grove, grown from mere seedlings they collected in California. While they were still young men (just 21 years old), they began growing this sanctuary. It became a park in 1959 and since then it has become an outstanding community legacy. Now with 50 different species of trees, both native and exotic, and five towering groves, Redwood Park is a beautiful place of discovery for people of all ages.

KITCHEN RENOVATIONS

NDP calls for overhaul of B.C. disability services

Including electrical, plumbing & carpentry Call Peter at:

Support agency under fire Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A BC Liberal MLA has joined opposition calls for an overhaul of services to developmentally disabled people, as the provincial agency responsible struggles with a growing and aging caseload. NDP MLAs in the legislature Monday called for an outside review of Community Living B.C., the agency responsible for developmentally disabled people once they are adults. BC Liberal MLA Randy Hawes rejected the NDP motion as â&#x20AC;&#x153;too simplistic,â&#x20AC;? but said his constituents need more help than they are getting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are people who have looked after their kids forever, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re aging out,â&#x20AC;? Hawes told reporters after an emotional debate in the legislature. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re 80 years old with 50- and 60-yearold children who need to have some service, and we never knew they existed.â&#x20AC;? The board of directors of Community Living B.C. fired CEO Rick Mowles Friday, after a series of controversies including the announced closure of a work program for developmentally disabled people at a recycling facility in Maple Ridge. CLBC has been phasing out some group homes as facilities and residents have aged, moving to home-share arrangements with contracted

Cadieux said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing that.â&#x20AC;? In question period, NDP MLAs continued to hammer the government over the closure of 65 group homes and the growing wait list for CLBC services. Developmentally disabled children receive support from the Ministry of Children and Families until they turn 19, and then must apply to CLBC.

A LITTLE PAINT NEVER HURT ANYONE!

Premier Christy Clark and Social Development Minister Stephanie Cadieux respond to criticism of Community Living B.C. caregivers. During legislature debate, Hawes described one family whose developmentally disabled son grew to more than six feet tall and became violent as he reached his 20s. He was put in a home-share but that lasted only two weeks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a fight, a real hard fight, to find a space for him,â&#x20AC;? Hawes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Definitely, he has to be in a group home.â&#x20AC;? Surrey-Panorama MLA Stephanie Cadieux was appointed social development minister in September, replacing Burnaby-Lougheed MLA Harry Bloy in the ministry responsible for CLBC. Cadieux

South Surrey writer pens tribute to beloved Rottweiler

Author’s best friend provides book inspiration Alex Browne Arts Reporter

Gemma Tamas and her late Rottweiler, Heidi.

It’s the story of a dog – told in her own words. What Heidi Knows, self-published by South Surrey writer Gemma Tamas, is a tribute to her beloved Rottweiler. And when Heidi passed away just over a month ago, it became a fitting memorial to a special pet. But it’s also an unflinchingly honest narrative, seen through canine eyes, of the chaotic patchwork of triumphs and trials that is known as life. There’s no shortage of drama. Abuse,

anger, addiction, the problems of human relationships, injury, illness – even death – all play a role in the fact-inspired story But, most of all, What Heidi Knows is a touching paean to the incredible bond that frequently develops between humans and animals; a mutual love and understanding expressed in looks and gestures that seem to speak as clearly as words. Anyone who has ever loved a canine friend will know what Tamas means when she says she didn’t write the book. “I’m only a humble scribe who put the story on paper word by word,” she said.

“It’s a tribute to Heidi and her friend, Checkmate, a Basenji, who passed away two years ago. “It was written from my head, and their heart. I wanted to show people the good qualities a dog can have, the unselfish love and the knowledge to go ahead and accept life as it comes.” Tamas said it always amazed her that the 85-pound Heidi had no hesitation in accepting the 20-pound Checkmate, who was adopted after Checkmate’s owner – a friend – died suddenly. “They were both Alpha dogs and not  see page 38

Wherefore art thou, Romeo? Romance, rebellion, and class rivalry sizzle in Trinity Western University’s contemporary production of Romeo and Juliet, playing until Oct. 29. Rediscover the humour, humanity, and hope in this classic tale of star-crossed lovers who dare to imagine that things could be different. Shakespeare’s profoundly human tragedy hits close to home in a refreshing, West Coast-inspired setting. “If you’re looking for Shakespeare you can sleep through, better skip this one,” joked Cloverdale’s Mark Fleming, who is playing the part of Romeo in the Langley production. The Clayton Heights Secondary grad, who was recently accepted into SAMC Theatre’s BFA Acting program at TWU, had no idea the Bard could be so much fun. “I thought I knew this story, but I never imagined it could feel so much like real life,” said Fleming. “Kids in leather jackets, bantering over a game of pool… The guy in the argyle sweater who your parents think is a ‘good catch’… “The stereotypes you accept simply because everyone else in your group does.” Langley’s Angela Konrad directs the timeless tragedy on the heels of her last project, a prison drama titled Jesus Hopped The A-Train, with Glass City Theatre. Konrad is thrilled to explore a love story this time around and illuminate all of its beauty,

It’s been fascinating to dive into a classic work and find so many contemporary parallels.

Adam Kleeberger shaves famous facial hair for charity, TV spot

Rugby star shears his beard Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

T

he beard is no more. Canadian rugby star Adam Kleeberger is cleanshaven now, after having his beard – which gained notoriety during the Rugby World Cup – sheared off for charity Monday in Victoria. And the man wielding the clippers was CBC’s Rick Mercer, who filmed the scene for an upcoming episode of his show, The Rick Mercer Report. “It definitely feels weird now, having it gone,” Kleeberger said of his beard, which he began growing in January. “But it’s nice to have my face back. And I was going to shave it off anyway, so it was nice to be able to do it for charity. I mean, why not doing something good with it?” Kleeberger’s Shear the Beard campaign raised an estimated $5,700, with proceeds going to both Movember, which raises money for prostate cancer, and the Christchurch (New Zealand) Earthquake Relief Fund. Kleeberger, a 27-year-old Semiahmoo Secondary grad who now lives in Victoria, got a first-hand look at the devastation caused by the Feb. 22 earthquake that struck Christchurch. After Canada was eliminated from the World Cup, Kleeberger stayed behind with family to travel through the country, and spent time Christchurch. “The city still has no central business district – it’s still just completely shut down,” he said. “It’s been a while now since the earthquake hit, so we expected we’d be able to go down there, but it’s still (shut down).” Kleeberger said he chose to help the earthquake relief fund after he and his national teammates received such a warm reception from the New Zealand rugby fans. “They kind of adopted us as their second team,” he said. Now back home, Kleeberger said he’s happy to leave the spotlight behind; he was among the more

sort of thing, but everyone said I looked and sounded OK, so I’ll take their word for it.” On the pitch, Kleeberger said he was happy with the strides his team made at the World Cup, though they know they let some opportunities slip away, such as the team’s second game against France,

in which they were close to pulling off an upset before letting France pull away in the game’s waning moments. Canada finished fourth in its five-team pool. “It was positive for the most part,” Kleeberger said. “But there were definitely some things we wanted to do that we didn’t do.”

With a win last weekend over the UBC Thunderbirds, the Bayside Sharks set up a battle for first-place – or at least a share of it – against Burnaby this weekend. Last Saturday in Vancouver, the Sharks elite men’s rugby side beat UBC 30-23 to improve to 4-1 on the season, which puts them in a four-way tie for first place, alongside Capilano, Burnaby and Abbotsford. The Sharks also picked up the bonus point for scoring four tries. The top two teams will qualify for the premier league in the spring, with the rest relegated to Div. 1. “It’s definitely going to come down to the last couple weeks of the season here,” said Sharks coach Pat Kearney. Against the Thunderbirds, Bayside got on the scoreboard early when Trevor Giesbrecht scored a try at the three-minute mark, and Eric Sugawara – playing just his first full game after recovering from a pair of serious knee injuries – scored two more in the second half. Pete Johnson added a late try for the Sharks, and Peter Clifford added two penalty kicks, both late in the first half, to seal the win. Clifford’s two kicks were important, Kearney said, because they came after two penalties put the Bayside down two men. “We still have some work to do on discipline,” he said. Two of UBC’s tries came late in the game, which made the game appear closer than it really was. “At the end, we kind of let them off the ropes a little bit, and they squeezed a few over the line, but overall, it was a good game, and it’s nice to get the win,” Kearney said. In Div. 1 action, Bayside beat UBC 50-10 to improve to 4-0-1 on the season.

Premier league has been success so far: director Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The inaugural season of B.C.’s new premier soccer league has so far been a success, according to one of South Fraser Soccer Club’s technical directors. “There’s been fantastic interest, and a great turnout at the games,” said Mark McQueen. “And our teams are doing very well so far, as well.” The new premier league – which features both boys and girls teams from U13 to U18 age groups – was spawned earlier this year, with eight team from the Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island and the Okanagan. The new loop was created to combine the province’s top young players in one league, eventually replaced the premier and metro divisions of the past. The B.C. Premier Soccer League will play a spring schedule starting in 2012; the current season is something of a test run. On the Peninsula, it’s also another step towards combining the Peace Arch (boys) and Semiahmoo (girls) soccer clubs. “The clubs are still working on officially merging, so this has been really good for us,” said McQueen, also the head coach at Semiahmoo Soccer. The new league has been on

The term menopause means one year with no menstrual cycle. Peri-menopause is the 10-15 years leading up to menopause. Both can result in unwelcome symptoms. MenoSense® contains natural ingredients to help relieve symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, poor sleep, irritability, nervousness, headaches and moodiness. MenoSense® is approved by Health Canada for treatment of symptoms of menopause including hot flashes and night sweats.

South Fraser Soccer Club’s Leah Jones moves upfield with the ball during a U13 girls game against Mountain United FC on Sept 17. the field for about a month, with many teams sitting at, or near, the top of the league table. “We have three girls teams at the top of the league, and two or three boys teams who are close to the top, so that’s pretty good,” McQueen said. “Given that it’s just the first season, I think we’ve exceeded expectations.” Fan and community interest has also been higher than club

members expected, McQueen said, and the game presentation – including pre-game intros and other things – has given games a first-class feel. “This is a quality of community football that hasn’t been seen here before, so it’s been very popular,” he said. “It’s really taken on an professional, big-time atmosphere, and it’s only going to grow as we move forward.”

Up to 80% of all women are expected to experience symptoms of PMS during their reproductive years.

Resulting from exposure to factors such as birth control pills, pesticides and other environmental toxins, the symptoms can include PMS, endometriosis, fibrocystic breast disease, heavy and painful periods and hormonal acne. EstroSense® is recommended by health professionals and contains natural ingredients to help reduce the symptoms of estrogen dominance.
