Gas tax fuels discontent

Driven south Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Support for increasing gas taxes to fund TransLink improvements has some White Rock councillors predicting even more people this side of the Fraser River will head south of the U.S. border to fill their tanks. “Any of us that can, we should make a statement here,” Coun. Al Campbell said Friday, in response to last week’s majority vote by the TransLink Mayors’ Council. “All (an increase in gas taxes) is doing to me – and it’s doing to you – is driving us to go south.” The Mayors’ Council voted July 6 in favour of a plan to raise gas taxes by two cents a litre and pursue a vehicle levy for improvements – including the Evergreen Line – with property tax hikes as a last resort. According to the 22-member group’s vice-chair, Pamela Goldsmith-Jones, support for the funding plan was “overwhelming.” Eight representatives, including White Rock Mayor Catherine Ferguson, voted against the move. Ferguson said Monday she believes funding for transportation improvements should come from  see page 4

Police files all-but-closed on two of three White Rock incidents

Devastation left by those who hit, then run Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A victim is airlifted last summer.

There’s a scenario playing out far too frequently on Lower Mainland roads; individuals are being injured or killed in vehicle and pedestrian collisions, and the drivers responsible are fleeing the scene. Police investigating such incidents say a driver’s motivation to duck responsibility for such tragedies can run the gamut – from straight-out panic at the reality of what just occurred, to fear it will be discovered they were driving illegally at the time, perhaps even drunk. But, regardless of the so-called logic, no reason is good enough to walk away from a tragedy

that has changed lives forever. “We’re seeing it occur far too frequently, where drivers are not taking responsibility for their actions and are fleeing scenes for one reason or another when people are struck or injured or killed,” Sgt. Peter Thiessen, spokesman for the Lower Mainland District Regional Police Service, said in a recent interview. “Many times, the drivers, they will panic and many times, they’re panicking for a reason. “But none of it’s justifiable. For someone to flee and leave someone dying in the road, I think, is unconscionable.” Thiessen didn’t have the latest statistics for the Lower Mainland, but citizens on the Semiahmoo

Peninsula will recall three such tragedies that have occurred in White Rock alone since 2008. Last Thursday marked the one-year anniversary of a hit-and-run collision that killed a 77-year-old White Rock woman as she walked along Marine Drive. (Police have never released the victim’s identity, at the request of family.) On July 18, it will have been two months since 56-year-old Marilyn Laursen was struck and killed on Johnston Road at Thrift Avenue, by a driver who had just avoided a police stop. Next month, on Aug. 29, it will be three years since two White Rock men were left for dead by a driver speeding along North Bluff Road.  see page 2

In the two older cases, tips dried up long ago. Without anything new to go on, police are simply monitoring the files on an annual basis, Sgt. Roland Pierschke said. The investigations aren’t closed, they’re simply stagnant. “It’s never closed,” Pierschke said. “Sometimes, it can take years.” Thiessen said more often than not, such drivers do not come forward on their own accord – despite repeated appeals from police, the public and devastated family members for them to do the right thing. “They will simply wait and see if the police will arrive on their doorstep,” he said. In the Laursen case, police know who owns the car recovered in connection with the tragedy. That person has spoken to police and has “provided the information they feel is relevant,” Thiessen said. He hesitated to say police were any closer to an arrest. “I wouldn’t want to phrase it quite that way.

news Pellet guns seized after firearm report in Crescent Beach

Spat leads to ERT raid, arrest warrant Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A minor altercation between two men in Crescent Beach Wednesday night ended with a major response from police – and a warrant for one man’s arrest – after it was reported a gun may be involved. Surrey RCMP and officers with the Emergency Response Team surrounded a McBride

Avenue home just before 7 p.m. July 6. Police say they were called after someone reported men were arguing and that a gun was being waved in a threatening manner. McBride Avenue was closed and the home’s occupants ordered out while police investigated. Two pellet guns were seized. Witness interviews led police to issue an arrest warrant for a 21-year-old South Surrey man

who reportedly fled the scene prior to police arrival, then turned himself in the next day. No one was injured, and the home’s occupants were co-operative, police say. Police would not disclose what the men had been arguing about. Lucas Grant has been charged in connection with the incident, and is due back in Surrey Provincial Court July 22 on charges of assault

with a weapon, uttering threats and possession of a weapon for dangerous purposes. It was the second time in recent months that a gun report has brought police to McBride Avenue. In March, shots were fired and 23-year-old Brendon Beddow was killed when police were dispatched to a disturbance. Vancouver Police Department is investigating that police-involved shooting.

Allegations turfed

Long wait ends trial Sheila Reynolds Black Press

A B.C. judge has kicked out a case against an alleged drunk driver in Surrey because it took too long to get the case to trial. A woman was charged in 2009 with one count of impaired driving and one count of operating a vehicle with a blood-alcohol level exceeding the legal limit. Though the alleged offence took place Oct. 12, 2009, her first trial date wasn’t until May 9 of this year. It was then that the accused requested a stay of proceedings, arguing her right to be tried within a reasonable time had been violated. In her reasons for judgment last month, Surrey Provincial Court Judge Rose Raven said that the 14½ month delay in the case caused the woman to suffer “significant worry, anxiety, and embarrassment as a result of the charges she is facing, which has been significantly exacerbated by the delay in the trial.” Raven said the woman would suffer more financial and emotional hardship now that her husband has had to move for work purposes. Not only would she have less help caring for their 13-year-old daughter, but the potential loss of the accused’s driver’s licence would also have a severe impact, said the judge. In her reasons, Raven referred to numerous other impaired-driving cases in Surrey that have been tossed out due to trial delays. One involved a gap between arrest and trial of 18 months. The judge in that matter – Ellen Gordon – called Surrey court the “problem child” due to delays it faces compared to other areas of the Lower Mainland and B.C. In two other cases referred to, both with 13-month delays, Judge Peder Gulbransen stated the lag time was caused by the reduction in the number of court days available to handle criminal cases in the past five years, the decrease in the number of “judge days” due to a lack of replacements and new judge appointments, and reductions in court staff and sheriffs. Gulbransen said provincial courts are not immune from budget cuts. “But, the Supreme Court of Canada has made it clear that the time will come when the courts can no longer accommodate an explanation for lengthy institutional delay that there is just no money for the court system,” he said. “In Surrey, that time has come.”

Daughter’s death moves parents to call for tougher impaired-driving penalties

Family turns heartache into action Dan Ferguson Black Press

As police stopped cars and trucks on both sides of the road, Surrey residents Victor and Markita Kaulius stood in the centre of the overpass that carries 204 street across the Langley bypass and told reporters about the pain of losing their daughter Kassandra to a suspected drunk driver. It is something beyond words, mother Markita Kaulius said. “We never, ever expected anything like this to happen to our family.” Father Victor Kaulius said they were speaking out in the hope of preventing further anguish for other families. “I don’t want to see another brother, sister, husband, wife, mother, father go through what we’re going through.” Their daughter, 22-year-old Kassandra Kaulius, was struck and killed at 64 Avenue and 152 Street May 3, by a vehicle believed to have been driven by an impaired driver.

Fighting cancer, having fun Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

Participants in the Underwear Affair are known for taking a light-hearted approach to the serious issue of cancers below the waist. Wendy Casey’s South Surrey fundraising team did just that last weekend, when they dressed up as superheroes and dubbed themselves the Ovarian Cysters featuring the IncrediBALLS for the BC Cancer Foundation’s sixth annual walk/run. The team of six – whose black tights and gloves, red shorts and masks resembled the garb worn by characters in the animated film The Incredibles – joined more than 1,000 flamboyantly costumed participants in the July 9 event in Vancouver. The fundraiser – which included a 10-kilometre run or five-km walk – brought in $630,000 for cancer research, prevention and treatment programs at BC Cancer Agency. Having raised around $16,500, the Ovarian Cysters featuring the IncrediBALLS was named the No. 3 fundraising team. “We just started out to do a bit of fundraising and have fun at the event, and it just snowballed,� team captain Casey said.

battling various cancers below the waist.� The IncrediBALLS was added to the team name on account of the three men who joined, she added. The friends received an overwhelming response from supporters, and surpassed their fundraising goal by $4,000. Dayle is “over the moon,� Casey said. “It’s just a real kind of positive thing in her life, and I think it helps her feel like she’s doing something. She even contributed a little bit. “She’s really excited about how well we did.�

Car destroyed in July 4 fire A burning car brought White Rock fire crews to the 14600-block of North Bluff Road last week. The fire occurred about 1 p.m. July 4, in a white four-door Chrysler 300 that was eastbound on North Bluff. Sgt. Roland Pierschke said the driver told officials he pulled over when smoke started billowing from his dashboard. Matthew Moore, 27, told Peace Arch News he was en route to Langley to have an electrical problem investigated when black smoke started to fill the car. The smoke was so thick, he sideswiped a couple of poles as he pulled off the road, he said. Moore said flames erupted before he was out of the car. He wasn’t burned. The fire caught the attention of area residents. Cole Davidson said he ran to the scene after spotting smoke from a half-block away. “I just noticed smoke from the window (of our house) and we ran

Flames billow from a car on Monday, July 4. over,” said Davidson. The car was destroyed. Moore said police also attended the blaze. Once the fire was out, officers tore apart the trunk and doors, he said – a search he described as unwarranted and “embarrassing.” All that was in the car were items belonging to his one-year-old daughter, he said. Moore suspects the attention is related to past activities that got him in trouble with the law, but said he did nothing that would justify the attention received Monday. “I won’t lie, my past wasn’t the best,” Moore said. “I’ve changed my life around, but I guess they don’t realize it yet.” - Tracy Holmes

Bus centre unveiled Jeff Nagel Black Press

TransLink has unveiled a modernized and expanded transit centre in Surrey that will handle many more buses as service South of the Fraser expands. The upgraded centre on 132 Street near 76 Avenue will be able to house up to 300 buses, including up to 50 big articulated buses that use hybrid electric engines, as well as compressed natural gas buses. That’s a big increase from the old capacity of 225 buses, allowing the current Surrey-based fleet of 187 vehicles to expand by as much as 60 per cent as needed. “We should be good for at least 50 years,” TransLink chief operating officer Doug Kelsey said, adding the expansion is important because of the projected growth in the Surrey area. “We’ll have the capacity to handle even more transit services here that we anticipate will be coming to the

South of Fraser area in the years ahead,” Kelsey said. The $12.7-million project was built with contributions of $2.5 million from the province and $2.1 million from the federal government and officially opened July 4. The new centre is considered much greener than its predecessor. The bus-washing system has a recycling system that cuts water consumption 80 per cent, while advanced wastewater treatment removes oil and grease. Bus washing is also faster, getting coaches back in service sooner. Fuel is now stored above ground, rather than in underground tanks, reducing the risk of contamination. The site houses a vast area for parking buses and a large complex of garage bays for maintenance. The 650 employees who work there also run the Transit Communication Centre, which manages the day-today operations of TransLink’s entire fleet across Metro Vancouver.

Athletes can entertain, inspire t’s a whirlwind week for sports fans on the Semiahmoo Peninsula, as both the Scotiabank Canadian Open International Fastpitch Championship and the Tour de White Rock are in town at the same time. And while the two concurrent events – the Canadian Open began Saturday and wraps up July 17, while the Tour de White Rock runs Friday-Sunday – may pose a timing problem for those wishing to take it all in, fans would be wise to adjust their schedules accordingly. After all, it’s not often this much talent arrives here all at once. The Canadian Open, for example, boasts five of the top six international women’s fastpitch teams in the world, while the younger divisions are chock full of girls who may one day end up wearing their country’s colours. For proof, one did not have to look any further than the pitcher’s circle Sunday evening at Softball City, where 16-year-old Jocelyn Cater – a Delta resident who grew up playing for the White Rock Renegades – was wearing Canada’s colours, pitching the last few innings in Canada’s 2-0 win over Australia, one of the world’s powerhouse teams. And Cater’s story is not unique – there’s worldclass talent nearly everywhere you look this week, whether you take in the games at Softball City, Sunnyside Park or in Cloverdale. The same can be said for the Tour de White Rock, which has long been a staple on the country’s cycling scene, routinely drawing the world’s top riders form across North America. This year, the challengers for the winner’s jersey include returnees such as Christian Meier, Ryan Anderson and Will Routley – all of whom ride professionally in Europe – as well as a host of newcomers. And while the performances of all these athletes – in both sports – should be enough to sate the appetite of the casual fan, they may turn out to be especially inspiring for young athletes themselves, as they get a rare opportunity to watch the world’s best at work. And unlike other professional sports that often hog the headlines, the majority of the athletes here this week aren’t in it for the money, or for fame, or in the case of Canadian Open athletes, even the glory of the Olympics – softball was axed from the docket after the 2008 Games. Instead, they’re in it simply for the chance to compete, to improve, even to represent their country. And that’s something worth paying attention to.

And yes, part of who I am is who I love, but does that mean I have to shave my head, pull on some boxers and start grabbing on girls while I chant out the colors of the rainbow? This is my life, labelled “Reilley.” Instead of this big rule book on which label I fit under, I would be much more satisfied with an instruction manual. Then I could just call people out by the colour of their shirt: “Hey, turquoise! You busy after class?” Or better yet, by the style of their hair: “Extensions! Streaks! Do we have rehearsal today?’” However, I could never imagine the words, “Hetero, what’s up?” coming out of my mouth. I guess that’s just one of the many things that separates us rainbow chasers from the rest of civilization. That, and the fact that we bleed glitter. Labels. It’s the timeless story with no ending. The constant battle until we figure out the secret to life as we know it – labels are for cans, not for people. So I walk today with my head held high, and you may look at me as whatever or whoever you want. Because at the end of the day, my favourite colour is red. It always has been. My hair has always been curly, and my eyes have always been hazel. I am not a science experiment, or some great new invention. I am a woman, and I love other women.

Peace Arch News

Calculations fail to add up Editor: Re: Higher taxes bring little, July 5 letters. I have read letter-writer Bryan Peterson’s comments with interest and must say I agree with him on a couple of points, mainly that he is neither an economist nor a financial guru. Frankly, he doesn’t stack up too well in the math department, either. Bryan blithely ignores the fact revenue neutral arose as the implementation of the HST was accompanied by a commensurate decrease in the rate of provincial income tax, plus a rebate for the most needy in our society. It seems quite simple math to add the return of $1.6 billion to the feds and a reduction of $1.4 under the old PST to come up with a cost of $3 billion to go back to the old system, let alone the administrative cost in terms of additional bureaucracy. What is there to understand? Of course the federal government will let any province set their share of the HST at any rate they desire, as they have no financial interest. I think it is important, however, for us to be assured that the rate can and will be reduced to 10 per cent over the next couple of years, and that is the purpose of getting the feds’ agreement in advance. To suggest there is some nefarious collusion between the two levels of government is ingenuous at best and closer to a straight misstatement of the truth. Both governments recognize the benefits of a harmonized sales tax, as do most of the democracies in the free world. It is both efficient and fair. Admittedly, the HST will not reduce until July 2012, as we are committed under our agreement with the feds for two years. However, we are not free to go back to the two-tier system until the same time frame, so this is a red herring. Bryan, did you expect to see more money for health care and education along with lower unemployment the day after the HST was implemented? The benefits of the HST will take some time to work its way through the economy before we reap its full benefits. Robert Cooper, Surrey Getting to ‘no,’ June 24 letters. As one who has spent many years successfully studying theoretical physics, I feel entitled to claim I am more than familiar with mathematics. As a result, I must flunk two of your “students,” who recently wrote letters promoting the HST. Letter-writer Elmer Sather failed to recognize the HST is a combined tax, which adds a new tax – let’s call it the “GST extension” – to the pre-existing GST, replacing, where applicable, the PST, to make a new, integrated tax – the HST. In all comparisons, the old GST is always present – now at five per cent – so the only percentages that matter are the old PST and the new, GST extension, both at seven per cent. The promised reduction from seven to five per cent for the GST extension will not come into play, perhaps, until July 1, 2014. This is where your other “student”, Randy Elliston, fails in his simple math. The referendum issue is not whether the HST tax after July 1, 2014 is a smaller percentage than that in force on July 1, 2010 when the current HST was introduced – this is obvious, a Grade 1 student knows five is smaller than seven. The question is whether the sum of the taxes on all one’s typical purchases over 12 months is smaller with the PST – that is, prior to July 1, 2010 – than the sum of all the taxes calculated on all the goods and services at the extended GST rate after that date. Since the full range of services taxed by the GST – and therefore HST – is vastly larger than the few goods taxed under the PST, then the

Surrey MLAs Stephanie Cadieux (Panorama) and Gordon Hogg (White Rock) vote in the referendum. annual tax grab is much larger with the HST, as was always the intent of the government in introducing the HST. Questions of transparency and efficiency, raised by Elliston, are simply red herrings. i.e. part of the smokescreen to confuse the ‘naïve and stupid’ in this referendum. Mr. Sather and Mr. Elliston, I am afraid you have flunked your math class on the HST and I must recommend that you both repeat your Grade 8 course on elementary percentages. Everyone else is encouraged to complete their homework so that they will be able to vote ‘yes’ on the mail-in ballot. Dr. Herbert Spencer, Surrey Tax truth is in the numbers, June 30 letters. I am now very concerned about the knowledge level of the ‘yes’ side. The PST rate was and would return to seven per cent not six per cent. As far as letter-writer Joan Rivett’s generous offer of allowing for PST on $30,000 out of $50,000, it is not very generous thanks. The accepted percentage of items that were PST exempt and will not be HST exempt is 20 per cent. That means if we compare spending $50,000 before and after HST, approximately $10,000 would have been PST-exempt, not $20,000 as you stated. I also feel, after reviewing the list of exempt items, that even 20 per cent is high as many of the items are not common – smoke alarms, lifejackets, fire extinguishers; $10,000 on such items seems high. So let’s do your math again: $40,000 x 7% PST=$2,800; $50,000 x 5% GST=$2,500; $2,800 + $2,500=$5,300. Oops, you lose again. $50,000 x 10% HST= $5,000. To be fair, you pointed out the HST does not drop right away. That is why seniors, parents and low-income earners will receive rebate cheques. Your insinuation that the reduction may not happen – I imagine due to lying politicians – is moot because I could argue that the PST might be raised or added to exempt items. As for seeing savings already, get real. We are talking about a major undertaking involving billions of dollars, millions of consumers and thousands of businesses. Economics is an intimidating subject, but that doesn’t mean it’s wrong. The benefits will come. Now, please, for all our sakes, try to educate

yourselves, people, and stop listening to Fight HST organizer Bill Vander Zalm’s crazy talk – he was a politician, after all – and vote ‘no’ to going backwards to the ridiculous PST/GST. Randy Elliston, Surrey Getting to ‘no,’ June 24 letters. Letter-writer Randy Elliston, it seems like you should be giving your head a good shake or two. You seem to be missing a few facts or are misunderstanding what you have heard. The two percent decrease won’t happen for another two years in which case the 12 per cent will stick until then, and we will be still paying 12 per cent on everything till 2013. By then, two per cent will mean diddly-squat, when the cost of living will increase by probably twice that and you would be actually paying more for things than now and taxed accordingly. The GST you keep speaking about is not the real issue; it’s the PST that has been implemented on things we never paid on before that we would see a reprieve on in the long run. We paid GST on most everything before but not PST, so it would go back to five per cent on those things, instead of staying at 12 per cent for another two years then, supposedly, 10 per cent after that. We will still be paying more on all these things, no matter how you look at it. Consider a family’s spending – that is very significant coinage. I no longer have my family living with me, but I definitely can feel the gouging that’s been happening and know what that extra seven per cent that’s been added to things that were exempt before means. Why do you think Ottawa gave B.C. the billions of dollars to implement this HST? It’s because they know it will greatly benefit them, not us, in the long run, and that’s why B.C. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon is fighting to keep it; because he doesn’t want to give the money back, not because it’s so great for the economy. We were doing just fine before all this. It’s the government that can’t get its poop together and thinks it can keep sucking us dry till we have no more energy to fight back. It is imperative to understand the whole, true facts before you vote ‘no,’ because there will be no going back then. Vote ‘yes’ and let us decide what to do, not be dictated to. Patricia Seggie, Surrey

Co-worker convicted A 32-year-old Surrey man has been convicted of second-degree murder in the death of a co-worker at an East-Richmond cabinet-making firm five years ago. B.C. Supreme Court Justice Sunni Stromberg-Stein found Gurpal Singh Brar guilty late last month of the May 2006 death of Sukhjit Singh Johal, 30. Brar was automatically sentenced to life in prison, but is eligible to apply for parole after 10 years, according to the court registry. Brar and Johal had been friends for several years, and once carpooled to work together from Surrey to Richmond. A few months prior to the fatal stabbing, they got into an argument about their carpooling arrangement, and afterward stopped driving to work

Guilty plea in eHealth scandal An ex-provincial bureaucrat who led B.C.’s troubled eHealth program has pleaded guilty to one charge of breach of trust. Ron Danderfer, a former assistant deputy minister of health, faces a sentencing hearing today (Tuesday) for accepting benefits beyond what is permitted by government policy. Three other charges of breach of trust and fraud against him are being dropped. The eHealth initiative aimed to digitize and share health records across the province. But it toppled into scandal when criminal charges were laid based on allegations a healthtechnology contractor offered him various income and benefits. The contractor, Dr. Jonathan Alan Burns, was previously sentenced to three years probation and community service for two counts of offering to bribe a government official. A third man, Fraser Health network services manager James Roy Taylor, has pleaded not guilty to three charges of fraud and breach of trust. – Jeff Nagel

together. And though they both continued to work at Nickels Custom Cabinets, they stopped speaking to one another. This was Brar’s third trial, after the verdicts from two previous trials were overturned by the B.C. Court of Appeal. During trial, the court heard that the May 12, 2006 battle started after Johal looked at him in “an unpleasant way.” Johal was seriously injured during the fight and died later that day in hospital. An autopsy revealed Johal had been stabbed three times with a three-inch blade, once in his left arm, once in the chest and once in the heart. – Black Press

Popular sing-alongs give Hazelmere United a boost

Church thriving after community revival Hannah Sutherland


Staff Reporter

ith Hazelmere United Church packed full for its popular singalongs – and a core group of volunteers dedicating time and resources to the heritage building’s upkeep – it’s hard to imagine that at one point the church had trouble attracting any community interest. In fact, it was close to closing its doors when Joanne and Ken Ratray read a call for members in Peace Arch News nearly 10 years ago. There were only four or five people in the congregation at that time, she said, and the church’s hall had no running water or plumbing. “Ken and I read the article in the newspaper and I said, ‘Let’s go up there.’ We ❝The people had driven past it for so here, they care... many years.” and they're so It was the building’s welcoming atmosphere kind.❞ and small-town charm Doug Grieve that won them over. donor “I felt like I’d come home because this church is so similar to the church I went to as a child.” Joanne began playing piano alternately with member Doris Ferry, who suggested the church hold sing-alongs to attract more people. “That was her language: ‘If you hold a sing-along and invite the community, they will come.’ And they did,” Joanne said. The Ratrays assembled some of their musical friends for the first event in 2002, which drew around 40 people. The second sing-along, Carols in the Country, was held at Christmastime to another enthusiastic crowd.

Joanne Ratray and Doug Grieve outside the revived Hazelmere United Church. Below, Ratray plays the piano as Grieve sings along. “Nobody anticipated, ever, that that many people would come,” Joanne said. Now, around 90 people turn out for the sold-out sing-alongs, which tend to play country folk and gospel, and are held four times a year (the next one is in September). The experience is made all the more enjoyable for guests thanks to the financial contributions of Doug Grieve. Grieve, 89, said his mother attended Hazelmere United in the early ’50s, and, before she died, told him to give the church a hand if one was ever needed. After drifting away from the congregation for 20 years and returning, Grieve now sits in the same pew his mother sat.

His financial support – combined with contributions from other members – has allowed renovations to the church’s hall, which is the former Halls Prairie schoolhouse and was brought to the 1614 184 St. site in the ’40s. Now that it has a bathroom, kitchen and running water, church volunteers are able to entertain sing-along guests with a fully cooked meal after the program. “The energy level in the hall afterwards is incredible,” Ken said. “It’s just such a great feeling they have, and it’s such a simple pleasure.” Members seem to agree that the singalongs – now Hazelmere United’s largest

fundraisers – helped revive the 108-year-old church, which has more than quadrupled its membership and is not only financially self-sustaining, but is now able to donate to others. “It was Doris’ dream, and many years ago it was Doug’s financial resources and a small group of people who helped cook,” Joanne said of the events. “There isn’t anything else like it.” Grieve agreed. “It’s like an old-fashioned in-the-Prairies get-together,” he said. “This is real. The people here, they care. They care about each other and they’re so kind.”

Community Based Lawyering After over 25 years working in the family justice system, 8 years as a family justice counsellor and the past 18 years practicing family law, I bring a broad range of experience and expertise to my clients. I have recently established what I would like to call a more community based family law practice here in the White Rock area. With its’ changing and growing demographics, the White Rock area has a corresponding need for quality goods and services, locally. People don’t want to have to drive ‘downtown’. People want good family counsel in whom they will have conÀ dence. They want to deal personally with their own lawyer. They want to be heard, to get ‘straight’ advice and timely, effective service at a reasonable cost. And, it helps if it is close by. From simple divorces to principled negotiations and agreements, from Supreme Court Chambers and Trial work, to the Court of Appeal, I provide a complete package of legal experience and expertise, as may be required by the needs of my clients. The importance of obtaining independent legal advice upon marital breakdown cannot be over-emphasized. A negotiated agreement is always the optimal objective. Sometimes, however, emotional or other dynamics may intervene and the timely protection or the advancement of one’s rights may be necessary. Delay can be prejudicial. So, it is important to À nd out where you stand and your options. If you live or work here, I am easily accessible.

Two athletes involved in Semiahmoo House Society have brought back medals from the Special Olympics World Summer Games. Stacey Kohler and Derek Tomm both won bronze with Team Canada earlier this month in Athens, Greece, where more than 7,000 athletes in 21 sports competed over nine days. Kohler, 28, won bronze in the 3,000-metre race (she placed sixth in her second event, the 1,500 metre) while soccer player Tomm, 35, and his 10-person Canadian team beat Austria 4-1 to capture bronze in their division. “That felt good,� Tomm said of the win, noting the U.S. won gold and Spain took silver. “I was pretty proud of the team, we did very well.� Tomm is a 15-year Special Olympics veteran, and helped his team snag gold at the 2007 World Summer Games in Shanghai. At this year’s event – held June 24 to July 4 – one of the highlights was walking into the stadium with the other Canadian athletes in the opening ceremonies. “I had to march in and they called us by countries, so they called out the Canadians and we all waved,� the Delta resident said. Kohler’s mother said she was brought to tears to see her daughter amongst the athletes, representing her country. “Very emotional,� Beryl Kohler said. “Here she is competing

Retirement that lives like a resort.™

Tomm – active in the society’s Employment Training and Support program – said the recent competition was his last with soccer, and he is looking forward to trying his hand at other sports. “I’m going to try something different,� he said. “I’ll probably be doing swimming or basketball. “I just want to try something new.�

Graduate aims to help struggling students Evan Seal


Black Press

s Rob McTavish walked toward the stage at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby to accept his PhD in educational psychology, he couldn’t help think about the people who had put him there. His voice began to waver as he remembered looking out into the crowd of 1,000 people – 10 of whom were PhD recipients. Rob could see his parents, his in-laws, his wife and, in his mind, a few teachers who believed in him when others either gave up or didn’t understand what it was that made him different. “My parents were there to see me finish, I wanted to show them I turned out OK, it was a real thank-you to them.” Academic trouble began early for McTavish, who is now married with two small children. Having been labelled as a problem student by Grade 2, he was expelled from five elementary schools and three high schools in his 12 years in the Surrey School District. “I was a very active kid, constantly challenging the teachers,” he said. “I would question things like, ‘why is the sky blue, what makes it blue?’ Or ‘yesterday you said this, but now you’re saying something different.’” Often his questioning was perceived as challenging or disrespecting authority. His grades would fluctuate from A-pluses one year to Fs the next, often in the same subject. McTavish was an avid reader, usually reading well beyond his grade level. And though he was able to connect with certain teachers who would offer more challenging work outside the school curriculum, having

In his youth, Rob McTavish was kicked out of five elementary schools and three high schools in Surrey. He now has a PhD in educational psychology. a “problem student” label made for difficult teacher-student relationships. “Not many teachers took the time to understand how I could learn, or wanted to take the time to challenge me,” he recalled. Some teachers, however, saw through his “class clown” exterior. “Ms. O’Mally at Bear Creek Elementary, she was one of the first who saw my uniqueness,” he said, adding a handful of high school teachers also recognized his potential.

Although he finished his Grade 12 year, he was two courses short for his official graduation certificate. In 1986, following in his brother’s footsteps, McTavish joined the military. Working weekends during the school year and summers in Alberta with the reserves, he enrolled in leadership courses and began to excel. “In the military, it’s all about respect. I felt like I was finally treated like an adult.” By 1991, after working random labour

jobs, he made the decision to go back to school and enrolled as a mature student at Kwantlen College in Surrey (now Kwantlen Polytechnic University), and after transferring to SFU, graduated with an undergraduate degree in communications in 1997. Still feeling the need to learn more, he continued studying and obtained a master’s degree in educational psychology from SFU in 2002. While working for CODE (Centre for Online and Distance Education) at SFU, he began to see the ability he had in helping others reach their educational goals. Focusing his graduate studies on improving outcomes for students, McTavish based his doctoral thesis on how learning objectives can help students improve their studying performance. Last December, after making an oral defense of his doctoral work to a large professional board at SFU, McTavish was granted his doctorate degree. But there was something missing from his educational resume. After earlier receiving credit for one of his missing secondary school courses, McTavish approached the Surrey School District about completing Social Studies 11 – the last course he needed to be granted his high school diploma. In early February, McTavish, 42, opened his mailbox to find a envelope containing his B.C. high school diploma; two days later came the announcement of his PhD. Now graduated and working as program director at CODE, his goal is to develop a workshop for struggling students, to keep them enrolled. “I know what it’s like. I’ve been there.”

wizard and vocalist Bruce ‘Sunpie’ Barnes – who impressed local fans in a previous appearance with Mojo Zydeco several years ago – is back, joined by longtime friend Leroy Etienne on drums. Etienne, a veteran drummer, has played with many of the greats of Zydeco, and is credited with defining the rudiments of the style. Joining them onstage will be Mojo members Randy Schultz (guitar and vocals), Jane Carnahan (rub-board), Dave Clairmont (bass) and Tom ‘Solid’ Gould (sax). The result, according to Mojo leader Schultz, will be “the authentic sounds of Zydeco and rocking blues, served up southern-style.” Tickets ($15 advance) are available at the legion; for more information, call 604-721-0872.

Max Tell In a departure from his trademark storytelling for kids, White Rock’s award-winning Max Tell brings a new work for teens and adults to Small Ritual Coffee Society, 1237 Johnston Rd. The Enforcer – to be presented in three parts on consecutive Wednesdays, July 13, 20 27 – is a gripping rite-of-passage story about Rock Rogers, a bully and hockey ‘enforcer’ who comes faceto-face with the realities of life and death during a white-water rafting trip. The new story comes with a warning: there is some coarse language in the telling of the vividly imagined piece. Each segment consists of a 30-minute readers’ theatre presentation, followed by an optional workshop in which Tell – whose Monkey Mumbo Jumbo was just chosen best book for kids and teens by the Canadian Children’s Book Centre – will share some of the secrets of his trade with would-be storytellers. The July 13 workshop will discuss creative writing, while the July 20 workshop will focus on creative performance. On July 27, Tell will conduct a question and answer on both creative writing and storytelling. Admission is free for teens, by donation for adults.

Currently students of Semiahmoo Secondary’s jazz program, Michael and regular bassist Abby David, who usually works with drummer Matt Skepasts (unavailable for the gigs), will be playing with subs – most likely Natalie Yergatian or Michael’s brother Julian. The Thursday night gigs mark an interesting return to Iguana’s for Michael, who first sat in there with keyboardist Willie McCalder – from whom he learned more than a few blues licks – when he was only nine years old.

spirit of the sea

White Rock July 30 - August 1, 2011


The Community of Lights Events Society is pleased to bring you the 61st Annual Spirit of the Sea Festival. The continued success of the festival requires community sponsorship and over 250 volunteers! Please consider the following sponsorship opportunities:



A safe and comfortable Festival atmosphere is built throughout careful planning. Many essential things are at first unnoticed by Festival participants... until needed. The Presenting Sponsor allows for these details to be addressed. The Presenting Sponsor is recognized within the Festival logo and throughout the Festival site.

PLATINUM OPPORTUNITIES Main stage The focal point of the Festival, the Main Stage, presents a mosaic of live entertainment all weekend long; with everything from jazz to blues, country to salsa, rock to big band and orchestras.

Fireworks A brilliant fireworks show lights up Semiahmoo Bay, to close the Festival schedule with a bang! Held on Sunday night, this stunning pyrotechnics display is a memorable highlight and regional attraction.

Children’s Pirate Parade Korki the Clown and friends will be will be leading our 8th Annual Children’s Walking Parade, on Saturday morning. Children are encouraged to decorate their bikes, strollers, etc., and to wear their favourite costume or come dressed for a FUN day at the beach. this year’s theme is: Pirates!

Waiter’s Race Servers from the Peninsula’s finest restaurants test their skills, while racing in unusual ways, at the same time balancing trays of tall tippy drinks! This high-paced, hilarious event is a traditional Festival favourite.

Flag Display Flags installed temporarily along the promenade and pier just for the Festival are a real crowd pleaser. They add even more colour and movement to the festive atmosphere. Being so vivid and attractive makes this a fantastic sponsorship opportunity. Two flags printed with your logo will be included in the display.



Torchlight Parade

Catered food is provided to the entertainers participating in the Festival.

The Parade attracts thousands of people of all ages. Against the breathtaking backdrop of the White Rock Beach, this vibrant procession illuminates Marine Drive and is the highlight of the Festival.

Volunteer Services

East Beach Stage Talented songwriters are featured here on a smaller, more intimate stage, in a waterfront grassy park surrounded by a colourful market. This stage provides a constant, highly visible presence throughout the Festival weekend.

Festival Signage Many signs are needed for the Festival; to direct visitors and participants to the Festival, to move people throughout the Festival, to help people know where essential services are within the Festival, etc.

The Festival depends on hundreds of volunteers to make it a success. Volunteers are provided water and meal breaks, while they serve thousands upon thousands of Festival visitors. A BBQ is hosted for them in thanks for their hard work and community spirit.

Coordinate and Event This is a perfect opportunity for small businesses to show off their community spirit. Form a group of volunteers from our employees, family and friends to help plan your own activity at the Festival.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Young players bringing ‘new energy’ to national team Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The last five years, the roster of Canada’s national women’s fastpitch team has been largely unchanged. Sure, there’s a few new faces on the field each July when the team comes to South Surrey for the Canadian Open – or in previous years, the Canada Cup – but by and large, the team has been led by a familiar troupe of lead hands. But when this year’s summer roster was announced last week, there were plenty of relative newcomers on the squad, including Paige Collins, Heather Ebert, Danielle Lopez and Joey Lye, to take the place of missing veterans, including Sheena Lawrick and Erin Cumpstone, both of whom have retired.

Megan Timpf fields a ground ball during a practice Thursday. Meanwhile, ace pitcher Danielle Lawrie and shortstop Jennifer Salling, are also both absent from this week’s Open, as both had obligations to their respective

teams in the National Pro Fastpitch League. “There were a few retirements this year, so there’s definitely a few new faces,” said 27-year-

old infielder Megan Timpf, a Canadian Olympian in 2008 who has been with the national team since 2005. “But it’s brought some new energy… and everyone is working together to get better. It’s a great group of girls, and I’m really looking forward to playing with them. They bring a lot of energy, a lot of fun.” The Team Canada veterans are also doing all they can to help their new younger teammates, Timpf added. “They’ve been asking questions,” she said. “I remember what it’s like to be a newcomer, and the questions that you have, so the veterans try to help them out as much as we can, and help them feel comfortable.” The move towards a younger

national squad mirrors the vision of Canadian Open director Greg Timm, who said the tournament, now in its second year, is putting the focus on player development, rather than the national teams themselves, as was the case with the former Canada Cup, which ran from the early ’90s until 2009. “We’re pretty excited. We’ve tried to change the focus of the tournament a bit. In the past, our focus was Olympics and (preparing for) Olympics. We’re bringing the best players in the world here to compete with a focus of giving back and mentoring young players, to try and re-engergize the sport,” he said, adding that part of that commitment includes having the international squads hosting kid’s softball clinics this week.

Canadian Open

Games of note USA 0 Japan 1 Fans who flocked to Softball City for opening day of the Canadian Open were treated to a gem of a ball game Saturday night, as Japan edged the U.S. 1-0 in a game that took nine innings to decide. The two teams battled to a scoreless draw through seven innings, which sent the game to extra innings, and international tie-breaker rules, in which the last out from the prior inning starts on second base. Finally, in the bottom of the ninth, with runners on second and third and one out, Japan’s Yu Yamamoto singled in the winning run.

In the tournament’s first women’s division game, the Renegades were edged by California after the A’s, who were down 3-0 heading into the last inning, scored four in the bottom of the seventh frame. Nicole Sidor pitched six-andone-thirds innings for the host club, giving up seven hits while striking out two.

Host country beats Australia, loses to Japan on opening weekend of Canadian Open

Canada bumps record to 2-1 Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

A dropped ball in the outfield and an inability to cash runners in cost Team Canada a win Sunday morning at Softball City, as the host country lost 2-0 to Japan at the Scotiabank Canadian Open Fastpitch Championship. But Canada got back to even on the day, with a evening win over Australia by the same

score. As opposed to Canada’s first game of the round-robin – an 8-1 spanking over Venezuela Saturday – offence was in short supply Sunday morning, with neither Canada nor Japan able to plate a run in the first five innings. Canadian pitcher Karissa Hovinga allowed just two hits and zero runs in four innings of work, and she was aided in the early going by her fielders, who made a number of big plays.

With two out in the top of the first inning, left fielder Melanie Matthews threw out Japan’s Maki Furuta at third base, and second baseman Megan Timpf made a spectacular over-the-shoulder diving catch in shallow centre-field one inning later. Canada’s veteran catcher Kaleigh Rafter also picked off two runners - one from first base early in the game, and another off third in the  see page 23

WR ‘Gades 0 China-Nanjing 7 The Renegades’ offence ran dry Saturday afternoon, as the Peninsula crew ran into a tough squad from China Nanjing University. China pitcher Wang Lan allowed just one hit over five innings, and relief pitcher Zhang Jiechan allowed just one as well. Offensively, China chipped away slowly at the ’Gades, scoring once in the first and fourth innings, before exploding for five in the fifth and sixth to break the game open. Olivia Zwick was in the pitcher’s circle for White Rock, striking out five while giving up six hits in fiveand-two-thirds innings.

sports New deal, new coach gives South Surrey winger good shot at cracking Minnesota roster

Gillies inks new contract with NHL’s Wild Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Colton Gillies may finally be in the National Hockey League for good. The six-foot-four, 210-pound South Surrey native signed a new contract this week with the Minnesota Wild – the same team that drafted him in the first round of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft – and the new deal is one-way, meaning he’ll make an NHL wage even if he is sent down to the American Hockey League’s Houston Aeros, where he’s spent most of the last two seasons. Gillies’ new deal is a two-year, $1.25-million pact, averaging $625,000 a season. “It’s nice to get it done, now I just want a chance to make the team,� the left-winger said. Because most teams are loathe to

Colton Gillies hopes to make the jump to the NHL next season. spend NHL dollars on their minorleague players, it stands to reason Gillies has an inside track on a job


with the Wild this fall. In addition, Gillies’ old coach with the Aeros, Mike Yeo, was hired last month as the new bench boss in Minnesota. However, the 21-year-old Semiahmoo Minor Hockey product insists he isn’t taking anything for granted. “Obviously, having a one-way (contract) helps, but at the same time, I’m not going there to be a fourth-line guy – I want to be able to be a shutdown forward, and contribute more than that,� Gillies said. “It’s nice to have (Yeo) in there as the coach, because he knows the kind of player I am, and knows what I can do, so I’m pumped.� Gillies spent the entire 2008/09 season in Minnesota, but was often a healthy scratch. He finished the year with two goals and five assists in 45 games. The following year,

2008/09 season), it sucked – I was devastated, but looking back now, I realize it was probably the right move,� he said. “I think I’m a better player – I’m faster, I’m stronger, I think I’ve paid my dues, and now I’m ready to just go out there and prove that I can play at that level.� In addition to inking Gillies’ name on a new contract, the Minnesota Wild have been busy reshaping their roster the last few weeks, acquiring snipers Devon Setoguchi and Dany Heatley from the San Jose Sharks, while bidding adieu to top defenceman Brent Burns. “Chuck Fletcher is one of the smartest general managers in the league, and I really think he’s made us a better team. It’s awesome – as long as he doesn’t get too many left wingers and bump me down a few spots,� Gillies laughed.

he was sent to Houston, where he spent the entire season. Last year, Gillies scored 11 goals and 26 points in 64 AHL games, and also scored once in a sevengame cameo with the Wild. He also excelled during the Aeros’ long playoff run, scoring seven goals and adding five assists in 24 games. Houston lost to the Binghampton Senators 4-2 in the Calder Cup final. “It was a crazy, intense playoffs, but it sucks to lose,� said Gillies, who grew up playing with Semiahmoo Minor Hockey before jumping to the Saskatoon Blades of the Western Hockey League.

 from page 19 seventh. But as good as the defence was for Canada, it was an error by Matthews that led to the winning run. In the top of the sixth, Matthews - ranging far to her left, and near the outfield wall - dropped a fly ball hit by Faruta, who ended up at second base on the play, and Haruka Kageyama, who pinchran for Faruta, scored two batters later. “The onus is pretty much on me for that one,” Matthews said after the game. “I just lost my focus... that shouldn’t happen at this level, but it was the game-changer.” Japan tacked another run on the board in the seventh, after a double, intentional walk and run-scoring single. Sarah Phillips was tagged with the loss for Canada. She pitched the final three innings of the game after relieving Hovinga. “We played solid defence, stayed in it, and our pitchers held us in there… we just couldn’t cash in our runs,” Matthews said. Against Australia, Canada scored the winning run in the seventh inning – the game was scoreless through six frames – when Megan Baird singled home Joey Lye. One batter later, Victoria Hayward singled to score teammate Heather Ebert. Canada pitcher Jenna Caira pitched five innings for the win, while Delta teenager Jocelyn Cater – a White Rock Renegades alum – pitched two innings in relief, striking out three. Against Venezuela Saturday evening, Canada scored all eight of their runs in a busy second inning. Rafter had two RBI for the Canadians, while Lye, playing right field, had a double. “Our bats were really going in that one,” said Matthews, who went 1-for-2 with two RBI and one run scored in the victory. Canada (2-1) played Team USA (2-1) Monday night after Peace Arch News’ press deadline.

ROBERT G.“BOB” MARTIN Robert G. “Bob” Martin passed away peacefully on June 25th, 2011 with Shirley, his loving wife of 59 years, close by. Bob was born May 2nd, 1923 in Govan Saskatchewan where he, along with his three brothers Bruce, Alvin and Joe, were raised on the farm. Bob was predeceased by his parents, Nora and Oscar Martin, infant sister Eileen, and brother Bruce. Bob is survived by his wife Shirley, six sons, Larry (Heidi), Doug (Kari), Rob (Dori), Bill (Lorna), John (Elly) and Gord (Caroline) and fifteen grandchildren Robert (Joyanna), Carla (Ryan), Brian, John, Kristine, Andrew, Kelsey, Haley, Stacey (Mark), Lesley, Giulia, Madeleine, Emilie, Peter and Laura, and two greatgrandchildren Liam, and Heidi and many extended family members. Following service in the Canadian Armed Forces WWII, and rising to the rank of Lieutenant in the reserves, Bob graduated in 1947 from the University of Saskatchewan with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture. While at the U of S, he met a special lady whom he soon followed to Winnipeg and courted during the 1950 flood by boating down highway #75 to her summer residence at “Cloverlodge Farm ” south of Morris, Manitoba. They were married in 1952 and subsequently began raising their family of boys (with two sets of twins). Bob started his career with the Country Guide publication and later with Manitoba Hydro’s rural electrification program. He was an entrepreneur who endured challenging economic times and prevailed through hard work and prudent business acumen. His first business venture was “Bob’s Esso” in Winnipeg. He soon moved to Brandon where, with different partners, he owned and operated the International Harvester Dealership which grew and serviced the community for over 30 years. Aside from the IHC dealership and other business ventures, he was also a successful farmer, rancher and land developer. Bob and Shirley raised their sons at Brookwood Farms on the outskirts of Brandon, which is now known as Brookwood Park. Brandon was good to Bob and Shirley and their growing family, and they were fortunate to know many tremendous people in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. With the support of Shirley, Bob was very involved in the community as President of the Brandon Chamber of Commerce, Chair of the Brandon General Hospital Board, and was also the Brandon Industrial Commissioner. Bob joined the Rotary Club of Brandon and eventually becoming President. He later joined the Rotary Club of White Rock and remained active in Rotary for over 50 years. In 1981, Bob and Shirley retired and moved to White Rock B.C. where they continued to actively enjoy many of life’s blessings with their growing family and the many wonderful friends that they met through Rotary and their community. One of Bob and Shirley’s greatest joys was hosting family and friends from far and near and enriching the lives of many. They enjoyed their west coast garden and their holidays to Maui. Bob will forever be remembered for his dedication to his wife and family, his inspiration to his nieces and nephews, his honorable service to the community and wonderful hospitality that he so generously shared with all who knew him. The family wish to thank the staff at Deltaview Life Enrichment Centre for Bob’s exceptional care. A Celebration of Life in Bob Martin’s honour will be held in the fall of this year. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to your local Alzheimer’s Association.
