Hockey game raises $11,207 to continue publisher’s quest
Linda’s legacy soars at Eagles game Nick Greenizan Staff Reporter
Friday night’s Surrey Eagles game raised more than $11,000 for the Linda Klitch Legacy Fund. The endowment fund was created the day after the sudden death of Peace Arch News’ former publisher Linda Klitch Sept. 26, with contributions invested and handed out annually to groups dedicated to improving community well-being. To date, nearly $20,000 has been raised for the fund – an initiative of the White Rock Linda Klitch South Surrey Community Foundation – and an additional $6,500 from last month’s Vintage Affair is to be added this month. Businesses and individuals pledged a combined total of $2,200 per Eagles’ goal at South Surrey Arena Friday. The Eagles beat the Victoria Grizzlies 4-3. Another $1,260 was raised through prize draws. Prior to the hockey game, Scotiabank donated $1,147 – bringing the total to $11,207. “It’s an awesome number, and it was a very good night,” said WRSSCF’s Debbie Magson.

Mayoral candidate abandons White Rock race
White Rock voters pack civic-election debates Tracy Holmes & Alex Browne Staff Reporters
An all-candidates meeting at the White Rock Community Centre Thursday had many of the usual ingredients: a little mudslinging, a few loaded questions and an awkward moment or two. Approximately 300 people who turned out to hear from the candidates – an even bigger crowd than the 250 that packed the contenders’ first meeting the night before – didn’t have to wait long for the first tense moment. It came during introductions, when mayoral candidate Lynne Sinclair highlighted the compensation package given to challenger Wayne Baldwin from his 2006 retirement as
city manager. After salary, benefit payouts and severance, the total was $523,678, Sinclair said, noting she raised the issue “only because Mr. Baldwin publicly named two of our staff.” In a statement to Peace Arch News in September, Baldwin criticized “exceedingly generous” compensation packages given to current city manager Peggy Clark and operations director Rob Thompson. “I’m not someone who attacks salaries, but I didn’t make it the issue,” Sinclair said. “If the pot calls the kettle black, it’s fair game.” Baldwin – after briefly chiding Sinclair in his own introduction, in which he described himself as “the extremely rich Wayne Baldwin” – defended himself minutes later, dur-
ing a rebuttal on an unrelated question. His voice breaking, Baldwin said the package came about after council opted not to renew his contract and declined his request “for more time,” which he said he made because his wife had cancer. “It was not my choice. It was the choice of council,” he said. Most of the BIA-hosted meeting – as well as the previous night’s meeting, hosted by Democracy Direct (formerly Friends of White Rock) – was decidedly less tense, at least during the debate periods themselves. Following Wednesday’s meeting at the same venue, host Margaret Woods rebuffed a conciliatory gesture of a handshake from can-
didate and onetime council colleague Cliff Annable – the two having made national headlines for a June 2003 behind-closeddoors incident that ended with a charge of assault against Woods that was later stayed. The first half of Thursday’s meeting focused on three mayoral candidates. (A fourth, Angelo Megla, did not attend either meeting, telling PAN by email Friday that he would be dropping out of the race. His name will still be on the ballot.) Each answered questions on topics ranging from what they would do differently at city hall, to re-amalgamation with Surrey, to how they would promote the city to investors. see page 2

Politicians respond to questions from page 1 On the latter, Larry Anschell focused on rejuvenating Marine Drive and boosting tourism year-round. He rebutted an assertion by Sinclair that weather is a more challenging element than the seasons when drawing visitors to the waterfront – “the true deterrent is the fact that in 2010 we gave out 15,500 (parking) tickets.” Regarding how they would deal with mounting pressure to amalgamate, Sinclair said more faith in the city is needed, Baldwin criticized the current council’s decision to contract RCMP dispatch services to Surrey and Anschell said smart ideas are needed to turn the tide that, left as is, will eventually leave White Rock with no other choice. Sinclair defended the dispatch contract as an idea that came from the police themselves, and noted the move saved the city $400,000. One attendee took Anschell to task over the fact he doesn’t live in White Rock. “Aside from your own financial gain, what have you personally contributed to White Rock during your time as a non-resident business owner?” moderator David Webb read from submitted questions. Anschell responded that taxes he pays as a business owner help pay the salaries of the current council. As well, clients of his recording studio frequent local businesses. While he goes home to Ocean Park, much of his day is spent in White Rock, he added – “I do not see it as much of an issue.” Asked how they would draw businesses to White Rock, Sinclair and Anschell said boosting tourism and the arts would go a long way. Baldwin said increasing density will create customers, and “the businesses will follow.” Questions to councillor candidates were read aloud in the second hour. One attendee – citing a recent PAN article in which incumbent Helen Fathers at first denied, then admitted to, making anonymous online comments – asked Fathers “why should we, as voters, trust you after that?” Fathers responded that she initially didn’t understand the topic when first interviewed “I spoke to them at 7 a.m. I made a mistake in what I said,” Fathers said. “It’s a small part of my three years as councillor.” Council-hopeful Barry Belec said he supports returning city property, such as road

ends, to the use of all residents; Graham Wood said he is in favour of keeping services independent of Surrey. Incumbent Grant Meyer confirmed he continues efforts on a waterfront trail system that extends from White Rock to Crescent Beach; Brad Forster said the status quo is “a good place to start” when it comes to pay parking, but noted a four-month discount season is too short. Candidate Larry Robinson said he wants to prepare a 20-year development plan; Steven Hughes said town-centre development should “strictly” follow the OCP; Dave Chesney said a key addition he would bring to council is “that ability to draw people together”; former councillor Louise Hutchinson said she would encourage “good flow” between the community and city hall; Annable said people forget what it means to be good neighbours, and the city needs to “get back to what we as a community know and have had for many years.” Incumbent Mary-Wade Anderson injected humour, when asked how she would upgrade her skills to stay current with technology. “Slowly. Very slowly,” the senior said, lauding the patience afforded her by the city’s information technology staff. “If that’s avoiding the answer, I hope I did it well.” The previous evening, some residual heat from council’s Policy 611 – which allows for applications to remove or trim trees on city land to preserve views – was felt, particularly during questions from the floor by residents who were on opposing sides of the city’s contentious removal of trees on Royal Avenue. Incumbents characterized the Royal Avenue controversy as a long-standing dispute between neighbours that had led to a staff report, which recommended removal of the trees as contributing to slope instability. “After that, everything seemed to go sideways,” incumbent Al Campbell said, adding slow city process exacerbated the situation. Incumbents refused to be drawn by questions on consultants’ costs, which have topped $1 million for 2011. Candidate Bruce McWilliam weighed in on the topic Thursday, saying he favours making accounts payable and receivable public each month.

news Cleanup project attracts dozens to site of tragedy
Father’s co-workers take back the park Kevin Diakiw Black Press
About 50 friends of a murdered Surrey teen cleaned up a park near Frank Hurt Secondary in his honour last weekend. The heavily wooded area near 138 Street and 77 Avenue is where attackers are believed to have made their getaway after stabbing 19-year-old Devon Allaire-Bell to death on the evening of April 24. Video surveillance photographed five Indo-Canadian males leaving the scene. No one has been charged. Devon’s father, Wayne Bell, has been sharing his grief with his friend and Coast Mountain Bus Company co-worker Gord Fletcher. Fletcher began discussing the idea of nam-
ing the wooded area after Allaire-Bell, something he says is now in the works. In the meantime, a group of people close to Allaire-Bell and his family descended on the wooded area Saturday morning to clean it up. Neighbours say prostitutes frequent the densely treed park at night, as do drug addicts and homeless people. Fletcher visited the area with representatives from the City of Surrey parks department earlier this year to examine whether there was a problem. “Just that day, when we went in there, we found no less than 38 beer cans, syringes... condoms, clothing was everywhere, trees were bent over into cots,” the White Rock man said.
Fletcher pointed out that students from Frank Hurt Secondary walk through the park every lunch hour. “It’s a big deal to us, we want to get this thing cleaned up,” he said. One of the suspects – a man in his 20s – is seen in video surveillance wearing lightcoloured clothing, with large distinctive writing on the back of his shirt. He is also wearing a white and black ball cap. Another of the suspects has a unique, marine-style haircut, with the sides and back shaved and only a small amount of hair on top. If you have any information, you can contact the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team tipline at 1-877-551-IHIT(4448), or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Skateboarder hit on 24 Ave.

Emergency crews tend to a young skateboarder, following a collision at 24 Avenue and Croydon Drive in South Surrey Thursday morning.
A 14-year-old skateboarder is recovering from soft-tissue injuries after he was struck in a South Surrey intersection Thursday morning. Police say the teen was knocked off his skateboard by a black Acura as he rode across Croydon Drive eastbound on 24 Avenue. Emergency crews, including paramedics, were called to the intersection after a passerby reported the incident around 10:20 a.m. Minutes later, paramedics and firefighters could be seen attending to the injured youth lying on the street, before he was put on a stretcher and lifted into an ambulance. Police say independent witness accounts indicate the teen may have been crossing against a red light. He was hit by the Acura as its driver – a 43-year-old Surrey resident – moved to turn left westbound onto 24 Avenue. The victim was released from hospital later the same day. Charges are not anticipated. - Tracy Holmes
Homelessness task force hosts all-candidates meeting
Surrey politicians square off over roundtables Kevin Diakiw Black Press
About 60 people gathered in Surrey’s brand new City Centre library Wednesday night to get the first look at the candidates in the upcoming civic election. Hosted by the Surrey Homelessness and Housing Task Force, the event was slated as a “Candidates’ Café.” Seven round tables each hosted slightly different topics regarding homelessness, including addiction, youth, seniors, etc. In groups of two and three, candidates were given 15 minutes at each table. During that time, the civic hopefuls were grilled by facilitators and then questioned by the group at the table. Table six was considered a “general” topic table, where various topics regarding homelessness were discussed. A few candidates quietly mentioned that this – the first all-
candidates’ meeting for mayor and council – felt like the beginning of the 2011 civic campaign for them. Candidates at table six were initially asked in one minute or less, “tell us what you know about the current issues regarding homelessness and affordable housing, specifically in Surrey.” Some candidates were extremely
forthright and admitted knowing little about the issue. “I don’t know enough, and that’s why I’m here,” said independent mayoral candidate Ross Buchanan. “My hope was to hear from the people who are actually out there on the frontlines.” He said it’s apparent the city isn’t focusing enough on the homeless.
“I have trouble sitting here today, just as I walked into this building, next to the billion-dollar boondoggle (a term he uses for the new city hall under construction), I became very aware we’ve got our priorities upside down,” Buchanan said. Coun. Judy Villeneuve, who has advanced the cause of homelessness in the city for 20 years, said
Semiahmoo residents group hosts hopefuls There will be a chance to hear mayoral and councillor candidates square off in South Surrey, after all. A Surrey all-candidates debate – the only one in the current municipal campaign scheduled south of Newton – takes place Monday, Nov. 14 , 6:30 to 8:30 p.m at the Rotary Field House (14600 Rotary Way). Most candidates have indicated they will be attending, according to Semiahmoo Residents Association, which is hosting the meeting. “We held a very successful one last election at Earl Marriott Secondary,” SRA’s David Cann said, noting
the meeting is one of few being presented by community organizations. The meeting fills a gap left when the South Surrey White Rock Chamber of Commerce announced it would not hold any all-candidates meetings for either city’s election campaign, citing financial constraints. The SRA was formed as a voice for residents’ concerns about highrise development near Martin Drive, which will likely be a re-emerging issue, Cann said. “The election gave us a good opportunity to become more visible again,” he said.
Surrey is finally doing something about the issue. “I think that we still have people that are unsheltered,” Villeneuve said. “The city has really decided that rather than building more and more shelters that we want to put people in stable housing. Over the last 18 months, we’ve housed 356 people in stable housing with supports, and I’m really proud of that.” Surrey Civic Coalition (SCC) candidate Stephanie Ryan said developers looking for rezoning could dedicate 10 to 20 per cent of their development to affordable housing. She also noted the issue can’t be tackled by local government alone. Senior levels need to chip in. One resident at the table pointed out senior levels of government don’t budge on providing resources because homelessness and housing rarely becomes an issue during provincial and federal elections. see page 4

A Surrey man has been found guilty of breaking into a 12-yearold girl’s bedroom and sexually assaulting her two years ago. Antonio Eduardo Daponte was convicted in New Westminster Supreme Court last Tuesday (Nov. 1). The 45-year-old was charged with aggravated sexual assault and breaking and entering in connection to the May 2009 attack in Coquitlam. There is a court-imposed publication ban on anything that would identify the victim. At the time of the incident, police believed Daponte snuck into the girl’s room, assaulted her and fled through a window when she screamed. The crime put the community on edge as the RCMP initially didn’t know whether the attack was random. After his arrest, it was determined the suspect was known to the victim’s family. Daponte is scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 12.

Issue hits close to home
ne of the more notable elements of this year’s municipal election campaign has been the sponsorship of all-candidates meetings in both White Rock and Surrey by groups dedicated to addressing the issue of homelessness. The Candidates Cafe held last week at the new City Centre library by the Surrey Homelessness and Housing Task Force and the meeting this Wednesday (Nov. 9, 7 p.m., First United Church) by the Peninsula’s Homeless To Housing Round Table are reminders to those seeking office of a problem all too often swept under the carpet. It takes a lot of money these days to stage an effective political campaign – even on a municipal level – and in an era of low voter turnout it seems it’s those candidates who have spent the most on advertising materials and placement that have the best chance of attracting votes. This can often mean politicians in local office who are insulated from some of the harder realities of a post-recession economy and more likely to have an empathy deficit common among our political leaders on every level. To some, the only answer for those in desperate straits is ‘get a job’ and move on – preferably anywhere where they can’t impinge on the image of progress and prosperity. But in a world of high debt and inflation, in which many of us are only one or two paycheques away from poverty, this is a dangerously short-sighted attitude. Homelessness may often be out of sight and out of mind in our apparently affluent society – frequently at the wish of those forced to couch surf or sleep in cars themselves. It is a social reality nonetheless, and one in which the impact is likely to be felt on our own streets first. What affects the citizens of our communities is the first and foremost priority of those we elect to represent us. All too often, the plight of the homeless is a missing plank in campaign platforms constructed of glib rhetoric. To address the needs of have-nots in a meaningful way – beyond the frequently served menu of empty platitudes, dilettante charity drives or passing the problem off to some other level of government – requires some personal investigation, more than a little sober reflection and a large degree of personal empathy. That’s why all-candidates meetings that acknowledge the existence of the issue are a valuable exercise – not only in terms of weighing the fitness of candidates for office, but also in terms of what they may end up learning for themselves.

So far this week you’ve said… yes 39% no 61% 82 responding at Occupy Vancouver. She was shouted down and accused of shaping the news to benefit “Coke and McDonalds.” At Occupy Victoria, which I visited a few times before it descended into another needle park, signs warned against “chem trails,” smart meters and corporations. Campers were urged to “nationalize finance, energy and food” industries. Five-year plan for tractor production, anyone? Nationalizing banks is also at the top of Occupy Vancouver’s long, pretentious list of demands. Why is this stale leftist ideology so pervasive? Here’s a hint. The union representing these kids’ teachers is demanding higher corporate taxes to pay for their typically self-serving, financially illiterate contract demands. Here in Victoria, as in Vancouver, the huge growth in shelter, food, clothing and transition housing service doesn’t impress the hardcore system users. Victoria’s mayor built his reputation with years of street outreach work, but he’s still targeted for the ugliest treatment, including vandalism at his family home. Victoria council even kowtowed by voting to “support” the squat next to city hall, where Johnston used to camp. Then they cut off the power and water, which had been commandeered rather than set up by city staff at taxpayers’ expense, as was the case in Vancouver. In B.C.’s most “progressive” cities, we’re getting used to encountering public areas fouled by vomit, feces and used needles.

Fight for those who fight for us Editor: If you ask MP Russ Hiebert what the compensation package is like for being under fire in Ottawa and coming out healthy and virtually unscathed, he will likely respond that it is not all that bad. All expenses paid by the public purse. Travel in the lap of luxury. A fully indexed pension for life in return for a relatively small sacrifice. Enough business contacts to launch a whole new career and create income streams. If you ask the same question of one of our young Canadian reservists, under live fire and coming home with wounds and lifelong disabilities from Afghanistan or some other country in turmoil – sent there by our government to serve – the reply will carry quite a different tone. Disabilities dealt with by paltry, one-time, under-market payments. Taxed on the proceeds of any annuities purchased with them. Denied their dreams and aspirations as a result of the restrictive nature of their injuries. Paying sacrifice for fighting in wars at our request and then left to languish for the rest of their lives with the injuries they sustained as a result, and ultimately left to their own devices for retraining, employment and income. The government – all parties – changed compensation legislation in 2006 with the result that our Canadian soldiers are effectively punished for their unquestioned service to our country. While on the one hand, I am confident this was not the intent of any individual or party, on the other hand, none of them are clamouring to correct the mistake. Equitas Society is a local nonpartisan, non-profit society which is taking the fight for these soldiers to Ottawa and to the courts to right the wrong that has victimized them. Get informed. Find out how you can help – equitassociety.ca or call 604-970-7884. Hold elected officials accountable for their actions, and encourage them to do right by those who fight for our freedoms.

Sister’s wish to protect all of us Editor: Last month, at Terry Road, my brother’s longboard was stolen. Two years ago, my iPod was stolen. Last year, my brother’s bike was stolen and his iPod touch was stolen right out of his backpack. One year ago, our scooters got stolen right from the top of our driveway under our carport. Why steal? What’s the point? I know there are gonna be people with less and people with more. If you take something that’s not yours, you didn’t work for it, it’s not yours. My brother was devastated when he went to the yard to find his board was not there. Someone went
through the gate and went to the side of the house. There were six longboards there. The person took three – my brother’s, my neighbour’s and my brother’s good friend. Longboarding is something my brother does every day. It’s amazing to watch them go down the hill and do tricks and slides. My brother and his friends are sponsored by WHR (West Hem Roll) and CR Boardworks. They make videos and stuff to advertise the company, but how are they supposed to go riding if they don’t have a board? My brother had saved up for a long time for that board, and now he has to buy a whole new one. Why take something that’s not rightfully yours? Stealing and cheating – it doesn’t help you, it just makes it worst. Even if if you are really poor, it’s still not right to steal. Someone should be able to leave their stuff inside a gate at the side of their house without it going missing. It’s more than just stealing; it’s trespassing. It’s their property. Most people – when it happens – don’t know what to do. You can call the police on the non-emergency line to report it. Also, my mom had a good idea to post it on Facebook. My brother and his friends are probably the only people with “WHR” stickers on their boards. All over the news, I hear of things getting stolen. I don’t know about you, but its mostly bad news. So why don’t they call it the bad news? There are always gonna be people who go down the wrong path and make bad choices, so make sure to
put your valuables in a safe spot. I wish that the whole world could get along, everyone had jobs and there was no stealing. But I’m 12 and I don’t know much about government and our world yet. But, at least, please stop stealing! Hanna Walde, Surrey
A change in health care Editor: Re: Shift in nursing care ill-advised, Nov. 1 letters. I am writing in response to a letter from BCNU president Debra McPherson regarding ongoing changes in staffing at Peace Arch Hospital’s residential care units. McPherson claims a reduction in the number of registered nurses (RNs) at that site, which is offset by a greater increase in the number of licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and care aids, is a move designed to save Fraser Health money. The change in staffing that McPherson refers to is part of a new care-delivery model introduced at all Fraser Health residential-care sites over the past 18 months. The purpose of the new model is not to achieve costs savings but to improve care. In fact, Fraser Health has invested an additional $24 million in residential care over the past two years in support of the new model. The new model ensures every individual residing in a complex-
care facility anywhere in Fraser Health will receive the appropriate level of service. At some residentialcare sites – including Weatherby and Dr. Hogg pavilions at Peace Arch Hospital – this has meant a reduction in the number of RN positions and an increase in LPN positions. Fraser Health is reducing the number of RNs at this site by eight positions and is adding 13 LPNs and additional care aides. RNs continue to play an important role in residential care, completing complex clinical assessment, working with families and focusing on activities such as medication reviews and care planning. We are confident that the end result will be better care for the residents who call Weatherby and Dr. Hogg pavilions home. Heather Cook, executive director, Residential Care Fraser Health Q Re: PAH nursing cutbacks not about money: Fraser Health, Nov. 1. I am concerned these cutbacks/ rearrangements will adversely affect my mother’s care. She is currently in a vulnerable mode; even now it’s hard to maintain care continuity between shifts. The permanent RNs provide the steadying continuity with the LPNs and RCAs, but with the RNs taking on additional workload – more patients – that continuity will suffer, in my view. Who will talk to the doctor and provide the liaison to the staff and the patients’ loved ones? Ron Powell, White Rock

The message that began with Occupy Wall Street now seems lost in Occupy Vancouver, writes Brian Lauder.
Message lost amidst the clutter Editor: After listening to the speaker from Occupy Vancouver on the radio, I have a lot of questions. He referred to the privileged few in the world, and I am wondering who he is talking about. I am not rich but I feel privileged to be born in a country like Canada. Yes, I worked hard many years of my life, and I now am retired in a home that is mortgage free. The speaker said things about everyone being treated equal. I find it hard to understand that in a country where you get the opportunity to get a leg up in life if you are willing to work for it – and a person decides not to work and, consequently, not have the money except through welfare or other such means – that they should think they would have access to the opportunities I have. The speaker mentioned the low percentage of voters that have decided who we should follow. Everyone has
the free right in our country once they qualify to vote; if they don’t take advantage of it, we get what we ask for. I was taught that in a democracy, the majority rules. Yet all over this country, small minorities want things their way and sometimes break the laws the majority voted for. Finally, if the occupiers are talking about the small group of very rich people that make the decisions that can really make changes – good or bad – I agree. Too few people make decisions that can influence directions we take – many times the wrong way. Occupying the Vancouver Art Gallery will not change that, but the original gathering sent out a message I think most of us agree with. The message you are sending out now is a bunch of squatters making a mess of our downtown, disobeying our local laws and excluding the use of that area for tourists and other groups alike.

news Senior says ballot box has gone from a block to five miles away
Polling station cut angers voters Kevin Diakiw Black Press
For the past 53 years, during civic elections, 83-yearold Colin Sveen has walked a block to cast his vote at Royal Heights Elementary. It was close and convenient for him and his wife, and it was just the way he liked it. That’s come to an end. Surrey has cut the number of polling stations for the Nov. 19 election by 30 per cent. In an attempt to make voting more convenient, instead of requiring voters to cast their ballots at a designated location according to their address, the
city is now allowing people to vote at any polling station in the city. But it means Sveen and his wife will have to travel eight kilometres to the nearest polling station, and for the first time in a long time, he’s planning not to vote. “Who now is going to drive over there to those blasted schools when we could have walked up here?” Sveen asked Wednesday, questioning Surrey’s spending priorities. “All they do is waste money on expenses, I don’t know how in hell they managed to pull this off, but then that damn
bunch that’s running Surrey, they don’t care about us.” Surrey council voted last February for a “vote anywhere” program, which reduces the number of polling stations from 74 to 52. “Staff has examined each of the locations that were used in the 2008 election in relation to wheelchair accessibility, parking, whether they were located on a bus route and proximity to shopping and other services that many voters would frequent on a Saturday,” a staff report to council states. City staff say Sveen, or anyone else with a disability or
mobility problems, can call the city at 604-591-4011 for a ballot and mail one in. Information on mail-in voting opportunities can be found at: http:// www.surrey.ca/election/9754. aspx Sveen can drive, but he doesn’t see why he should have to. He said of all the places to cut, it shouldn’t be at the ballot box. “I’ve never seen such arrogance in all my life as this,” Sveen said. The polling station locations can be found at the city’s website at http://www.surrey.ca/ election/9634.aspx

Poor weather is anticipated to take a $55,200 chunk out of White Rockâ€™s 2011 pay-parking revenue. The point â€“ softened by news that the loss is expected to drop to $19,000 due to savings in related operation costs â€“ was one of several noted last month by the cityâ€™s financial services director. In presenting her third-quarter financial report to the city finance committee Oct. 24, Sandra Kurylo predicted a preliminary budget surplus of $190,000 for the year overall, largely as a result of development permits. As of Sept. 30, the city had issued 156 building permits, compared to 145 one year ear-
Surrey bills for hit, run death A projected surplus in White Rockâ€™s RCMP budget should be set aside to help pay a bill expected from Surrey for that detachmentâ€™s help on a hit-and-run investigation, officials heard last month. In a report to the cityâ€™s finance committee, financial services director Sandra Kurylo said the city will be invoiced about $203,000 for the investigation triggered by the death of Marilyn Laursen. Laursen, 56, was killed May 18 when she was struck as she crossed Johnston Road at Thrift Avenue. The ensuing investigation cost about $225,000; White Rock is responsible for 90 per cent of the tab, Kurylo told the committee. Kurylo said while the city typically ends its fiscal year with a surplus in its RCMP budget, paying for those extra resources from Surrey is â€œgoing to consumeâ€? the $166,000 surplus projected for 2011, and more. Asked if such a bill is unusual, Kurylo said she couldnâ€™t recall it happening before, â€œto that extent.â€? Asked who authorized the expenditure, city manager Peggy Clark said it was a decision by Staff Sgt. Lesli Roseberry in consultation with an RCMP regional director. The city is to receive the bill in 2012, after fiscal year-end. Kyle Brandon Danyliuk has been charged in connection with Laursenâ€™s death. He is due back in Surrey Provincial Court Nov. 9. - Tracy Holmes
lier. Projected revenue from that source by the end of 2011 is $450,000 â€“ $160,000 more than budgeted. Construction value of those permits was nearly $59 million â€“ about $25 million higher than for the same period last year. The third-quarter report projects the city to be over-budget in its green-waste program (by $108,200), operating expenditures of the municipal engineering and operations department ($27,000), legal costs ($80,000) and bylaw enforcement ($68,000). Kurylo notes the latter is a result of a miscalculation of one of the costs associated with a change to in-house parking and other
bylaw enforcement. The amount is expected to be offset by smaller cost-savings. Kurylo recommended a projected surplus of $166,000 in the RCMP contract budget be set aside to offset an invoice expected for approximately $203,000 (see sidebar). In response to questions regarding the green-waste program, she confirmed $179,000 was the original budget for it; it is now projected to cost about $287,000. City manager Peggy Clark noted the overrun is actually good news, as it reflects on the level of participation. â€œThe uptake has been far greater than we planned,â€? she said.

Jewelry seizures highlight busy month at border Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter
In addition to processing more than 300,000 northbound travellers at the Douglas (Peace Arch) border last month, officers manning the crossing were kept busy with jewelry seizures, impaired drivers and an improperly declared car. In highlighting a few incidents, Canada Border Services Agency’s Erin Steeksma noted one from Oct. 7 even sparked a criminal investigation into a Canadian resident. Steeksma explained the step was taken after border officers examining a northbound vehicle discovered $22,000 worth of undeclared watches that had been purchased at the dutyfree store. The watches were seized. On Oct. 19, a man who failed to declare a $12,000 diamond
solitaire ring was assessed nearly $4,000 in penalties. The fine was levied after officers discovered a jewelry store business card and an empty jewelry bag in the vehicle of a Canadian resident. Another Canadian was made to pay close to $5,000 in fines after border guards determined a traveller had understated the value of a Porsche he was importing. Steeksma said the man, who arrived at the crossing Oct. 2, told officers he was bringing in a $35,000 car. Discrepancies in paperwork, however, determined a false receipt had been presented, and that the vehicle was actually worth nearly $50,000. One of the border’s first impaired drivers of the month came to guards’ attention Oct. 2, when an officer noted the smell of liquor

White Rock dental assistant spends summer volunteering in Sierra Leone
Hope floats to those in need in West Africa Sarah Massah
22-year-old Port Kells woman is making the transition back to her White Rock dental assistant job after spending a month in Sierra Leone, providing medical care to people in need. For Sonya Van Hove, returning home in August to the structured daily routine at her dental office was a shock after working in Africa, where patients would wait the whole day to see a dentist. “Adapting back home to an office here, I had to reacquaint myself with the different types of procedures,” Van Hove said. “Coming home, I see and understand the benefits of having the structure of a schedule and appointments.” Van Hove, who also went to Uganda in 2009 as part of her practicum at Douglas College, said she ventured to the West African country in July to put her skills to work in order to provide some much-needed relief. “When I went to Africa for the first time, I saw the need for dental work and the hope that these people have and I wanted to go back,” Van Hove said. “It’s something I love and it gets me excited to bring them the hope that they need.”
Sonya Van Hove (second from left) volunteered in Sierra Leone for a month onboard a hospital ship providing hundreds of people dental care. For this trip, Van Hove worked onboard the Africa Mercy, which is operated by Mercy Ships, an international Christian charity operating hospital ships in developing nations, along with 400 crew members and volunteers from more than 40 different countries.
While in Sierra Leone, Van Hove Depending on staff, Van Hove saw firsthand the desperate need said there could be between 45 for medical assistance – a stark to 65 patients a day, all who had contrast to the care available in to undergo dental procedures.

and she was so thankful for that and so appreciate of the work.” Even when Van Hove was not working she said was welcomed into communities with open arms, often invited to visit homes or go to church with the Sierra Leoneans. The experience she had working in the country inspired her new motto to live by: be bold. “Stepping out of my comfort zone was one thing I learned how to do. Going to a different country is scary, but I learned so much about the people,” Van Hove said. “And they were so open and gracious, just sharing their lives with us.” According to Mercy Ships, the Africa Mercy is the largest floating hospital in Sierra Leone. Since 1978, more than $808 million has been provided in services to developing nations, including more than 47,000 operations, according to the charity. For more information go to www.mercyships.ca

Shop owner aims to renovate skate park Jennifer Lang
alling Extreme Makeover, Skate Park Edition. It’s time to renovate – if not completely overhaul – Cloverdale’s skate park, says the owner of a local board shop. The decade-old facility has so many cracks and bumps it’s impossible for newbies to skate safely, says Shawn Jafarnejad, an Ontario native who came west to work at the 2010 Winter Olympics and stayed, opening Ollie North Skate Shop in Cloverdale last year. “Cloverdale’s one of the most busiest parks in the Lower Mainland,” he says, “because we’ve got the best vibe.” But the vibe here is a lot harsher on inexperienced skaters, whom he says are getting hurt due to sharp ramp angles and transitions at the park. There are other issues: the snake run was never built, and the bowl has a bump in the centre. It’s as if the builders had some dirt left over and put it there, he says. Jafarnejad is hoping to convince the City of Surrey to revamp the park, or demolish it entirely and rebuild it from scratch. Located at 17848 64 Avenue, the facility is lagging behind contemporary skate parks, which can be constructed to look more like a plaza, and are places where families would feel comfortable walking with their children and “not know it’s a skate park,” he says. Jafarnejad is trying to garner support for turning the park into more family and visitor-friendly spot, with better lighting, an
art wall, landscaping with benches, planters, fountains and paths and a community garden. “I’m trying to get the 95 per cent of the community involved, not just the skateboarders. The parents, the teachers, the everyday traffic that walks by there.” He’s hopeful after talking to skate park companies and after a conversation with Mayor Dianne Watts at the official opening of the state-of-the-art Chuck Bailey Youth Park. “We all know it all comes down to money and budgeting,” he added. His vision is to turn the Cloverdale Youth Park into a Skate-Spot Safe-Spot, a 24-hour skate spot with an emergency call system and a city map pointing out nearby amenities and bus routes. “It’s a spot where all the community can hang out,” he said. “So it’s always safe, because there’s always eyes, there’s always ears.” Now, Jafarnejad is seeking online votes for the proposal, which has made it to round two of the Aviva Community Fund competition. If successful, the project would gain $100,000 to $150,000 in grant money to get off the ground. As of Friday, the proposal had garnered 384 online votes and 234 ‘likes’ on Facebook. Round two voting ends Nov. 9 at 9 a.m. He’s also gathering signatures on a petition seeking support for the plan. To vote or view the idea, go to www.avivacommunityfund.org/ideas/view/12609, or visit www.ollienorth.ca and follow the link to the Aviva Community Fund website.

Inventory of wars in contemporary history Remembrance Day is an opportunity to reﬂect on the sacriﬁces that today’s soldiers make and on the sacriﬁces of all those who preceded them.
The most remembered war: This is the Second World War because of the atom bombs dropped on Japan and because it left its mark on three generations. Fortunately, those who remember it also remember the slogan “No more war!”
PHOTO: PHOTO.COM / THINKSTOCK
The deadliest war: The Great War of 1914-1918 is the greatest drama known to Europe in terms of the number of deaths. The totalitarian regimes of the twentieth century and the Second World War are the direct consequences of this war. But it was the Second World War that was the deadliest, with more than 55 million deaths, of which 30 million were civilian. Remembrance Day is meant to help us remember the meaning of the most signiﬁcant wars of our era.
The bloodiest battle in Canadian history: The Battle of the Somme took place from July 1 to the end of November, 1916. On the ﬁrst day of this battle, the 1st Newfoundland Regiment was virtually annihilated in the village of Beaumont. Machine guns, barbed wire, trenches, and massive artillery shelling resulted in ferocious ﬁghting marked by heavy losses. Some 24,713 Canadians and Newfoundlanders died in the battle. The largest naval battle: The greatest naval concentration of contemporary history was deployed in the Persian Gulf and Indian Ocean area on September 21, 2007. This unprecedented demonstration of power by the United States against Iran included three aircraft carriers supported by about 40 escort vessels and nearly 100 aircraft.

MEET AND GREET with
Surrey Heritage Society looking for projects
Truck museum may be on way Jennifer Lang Black Press
The baby’s been delivered, but it hasn’t started crawling yet. That’s how Paul Orazietti introduced the new Surrey Heritage Society to members of the Cloverdale Business Improvement Association and Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce last month. Orazietti, who’s one of the directors of the new society, says it was formed to fundraise and advocate for projects dedicated to the preservation and conservation of heritage assets in the City of Surrey. It’s led by president Bruno Zappone, a prominent Cloverdale resident, and the society hopes to launch a membership drive soon. “We’re trying to bring in people
who are passionate about advocating for the protection and conservation of history in this city,” Orazietti said. One of its first projects may be to take on the Teamsters Freight Transportation Museum, moving its collection of 18 vintage trucks from Port Coquitlam to Cloverdale. The Teamsters society is looking to donate their museum to a new society that can carry on with the conservation, restoration, and preservation of its trucks. The collection was part of the former B.C. Transportation Museum that used to be located in Cloverdale until it was closed in 1993 and its contents disbursed. One of the more noteworthy items

was ex-Beatle John Lennon’s psychedelic Rolls-Royce. Expo ’86 chairman Jim Pattison arranged to have the Rolls loaned from Ripley’s Believe It Or Not to the world’s fair. Title was later transferred to Jim Pattison Industries, and the B.C. billionaire donated the car to the Royal B.C. Museum in Victoria. Orazietti said there have already been initial discussions with the Cloverdale Rodeo
and Exhibition Society to consider using the Alice MacKay building as a truck and tractor museum site on the Rodeo Fairgrounds. Several cities are vying for the Teamsters’ collection, but Surrey is the currently the frontrunner, Orazietti said.

Tom Fletcher Black Press
BC Transit operates bus services in communities outside Metro Vancouver, with financing from a province-wide gasoline tax. It receives funding from 58 local governments, and had a budget of $249 million last year. Current legislation has the province paying 47 per cent of costs for regional transit systems, with the rest raised by local governments. The local share is about half from fare and advertising revenue, and the rest from property tax. The province funds two thirds of handyDART transit services for the disabled.
Greater Victoria municipalities have proposed a regional transit agency similar to TransLink, which collects its own fuel taxes and manages the system through a mayors’ council. Translink is currently considering an additional two cents a litre gasoline tax to fund extension of the SkyTrain system from Burnaby to Coquitlam. Lekstrom said the review won’t deal directly with issues such as different fuel tax rates in different regions. It will consider proposals for greater regional authority over the expansion and operation of transit services.

The show, which features Nigel Watkinson as the title character, and Michelle Gatez as principal boy Jack (of Jack and Jill fame), chronicles the kidnapping of Mother Goose and the journey to rescue her from a publishing conglomerate holding her captive in Las Vegas.

Get Reel Semiahmoo Arts’ Get Reel film series is back with a program of new films from Canada, England, France and Germany. Wednesday, Nov. 23 at 7 p.m. at White Rock Community Centre (Miramar Village), the screening is Of Gods And Men, a French-Algerian co-production.
Sounds of soul
Singer/songwriter Ola Onabule will bring his multi-faceted sounds to the Bell Centre Nov. 25. Below, stand-up comedian Simon King is set to perform at the Newton Cultural Centre for a fundraiser Nov. 19.
Directed by Xavier Beauvois, it’s a reallife-inspired story of eight French Christian monks living in harmony with their Muslim brothers in the mountains of North Africa in the early 1990s. When a crew of foreign workers is massacred by an Islamic fundamentalist group and fear sweeps through the region, the monks are faced with a momentous decision – should they leave, or should they stay true to their mission and their calling, no matter what happens? The Academy Award-nominated film has been described by Time Magazine’s Richard Corliss as “a luminous tale of faith and heroism.” As with all presentations in the Get Reel series, the screening will be followed by a discussion led by a guest speaker. Tickets are $10 for members and $11 for the general public. For more info, visit www. semiahmooarts.com

Ola Onabule Dynamic soul and jazz artist Ola Onabule is back in B.C. for a series of a concerts presented by White Rock impresario Philip Q. Davey, including a Nov. 25, 8 p.m. date at the Bell Centre for Performing Arts (6250 144 St.) The British-raised, Nigerian-born singer and composer combines a butter-smooth style, incredible vocal range and sensitive, intense projection of poetic lyrics with a magnetic stage presence and charmingly dry sense of humour. He’s performed with such soul and jazz greats as Gladys Knight, Diane Reeves, Patti LaBelle, Al Jarreau, Roberta Flack, Natalie Cole and Roy Hargrove, but after years of dues paying, his explosive live performances are winning fans and attracting great press at the world’s most prestigious jazz festivals and concert halls. His debut at the Montreal Jazz Festival in 2009 opened the door for more North American touring, and a documentary about his career, aired on CNN’s African Voices, has inspired a new project, a PBS special to be filmed in the U.S. next spring. The Nov. 25 concert will feature material from his new album, Seven Shades Darker,

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula
Surrey takes five of possible six points in busy week
Penalty shot sinks Eagles’ hopes of sweep Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter
The Surrey Eagles came within a penalty shot of a perfect record during three games last week. The B.C. Hockey League club, which now sits atop the Coastal Conference with a 10-40-3 record, won Wednesday 3-2 in Chilliwack against the Chiefs, and Friday at home edged the Victoria Grizzlies by a goal, 4-3. The only blemish came Saturday at South Surrey Arena, when the Coquitlam Express walked away with a 4-3 victory, with the winning goal coming on a penalty shot with 22 seconds left in double-overtime. To that point in the three-on-three overtime, the Eagles had outshot the Express 8-2, but defenceman Steve Koshey was whistled for a hooking ❝We still took penalty, which set up the five of six penalty shot goal by Malpoints last colm McKinney. “Getting a penalty shot week, and we’re happy with 20 seconds to go, it’s with that.❞ unfortunate but that’s just how it goes sometimes,” Matt Erhart said Eagles coach Matt Eagles coach Erhart. “But we still took five of six points last week, and we’re happy with that. If you do that most weeks in this league, you’re going to have a pretty good year.” Sean McGovern, Tyler Morley and rookie defenceman Devon Toews each scored in Saturday night’s loss, and goaltender Andrew Hunt stopped 36 shots. A day earlier, the Eagles held on to beat Victoria by one goal, but the home team carried the play for much of the game and if not for a surge from the Grizzlies late in the second period could have been up by more than a goal after 40 minutes. “We were definitely a little unlucky not to be up 4-1 or 5-1 after two,” Erhart said. Koshey, on the power play, opened the scoring 3:43 in the game, and the Eagles went up 3-0 early in the second period on goals from Robert Lindores and Charles Orzetti. Victoria’s Braxton Bilous and Coltyn Hansen scored for the visitors before the second intermission, however. In the third period, Eagles’ rookie Demico Hannoun scored his second goal in as many games to make it 4-2 before Victoria’s Sean Robertson added a goal of his own one min-

The Eagles played all week without key forwards Michael Stenerson and Brandon Morley, both of whom were playing for Canada West at the World Junior ‘A’ Challenge in Langley, an international tournament that wraps up Sunday. “Without those two guys it’s nice to see some of the other guys step up and take advantage of the extra minutes, or extra power-play time,” Erhart said, singling out rookies Toews and Hannoun specifically for praise. “Demico scored his first career goal Wednesday, had another Friday, and unfortunately he got hurt early in Saturday’s game, but he’s a
guy who took the extra ice time and ran with it,” Erhart said. Erhart was also impressed with the play of Hunt, who was in net for all three games last week. The 19-year-old Surrey native is sixth in the BCHL in goals-against average at 2.52 and also fifth in save-percentage. He is also second among goalies in minutesplayed, behind only Coquitlam starter Khaleed Devji. Erhart said Hunt’s win-loss record of 9-5 is misleading, too – it would be better in not for three overtime losses. “Really, he’s 9-2-3 if you break it down, and in overtime games, you can’t really pin those
losses on the goalie,” Erhart said. “He’s been really good for us all year.” Friday’s game against Victoria served as a fundraiser for the Linda Klitch Legacy Fund, in honour of the former Peace Arch News publisher who passed away in September. In total, $11,207 was raised through 50/50 sales, prize draws, and per-goal pledges from local businesses and individuals – which totalled $2,200 per goal. The Eagles play a home game Remembrance Day (Friday), again against Victoria, and because of the holiday, the game is a 3 p.m. start. On Sunday, Surrey faces Cowichan at South Surrey Arena at 4 p.m.

sports Stenerson, Morley to play this week at World Junior â€˜Aâ€™ Challenge
Eaglesâ€™ pair make West team The Surrey Eagles will be wellrepresented this week at the World Junior â€˜Aâ€™ Hockey Challenge in Langley. Two of the teamâ€™s forwards, Michael Stenerson and Brandon Morley, were chosen last week to suit up for the Canada West team. The final roster was selected by Canada West head coach Kent Lewis, who is also the bench boss of the B.C. Hockey Leagueâ€™s Powell River Kings, and his assistant coaches after a three-day selection game at Langley Events Centre. â€œGetting down to 22 players
For the record A Nov. 3 Peace Arch News sports story on Earl Marriott Secondaryâ€™s senior boys soccer team stated that the team did not play last season due to not having a coach or enough players. However, the South Surrey school did field a team at the start of the season, but was forced to fold midway through the regularseason schedule to due a lack of players.
was by no means an easy decision,â€? said Lewis. â€œWe had some tremendously talented players in camp, and they did not make our jobs easy as a coaching staff. Weâ€™re excited about the players
weâ€™ve selected and look forward to getting started.â€? Players on the Canada West team, which has appeared in four of the tournamentâ€™s past five gold-medal games, were selected from the countryâ€™s five Western junior â€˜Aâ€™ leagues â€“ the BCHL, as well as Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Superior International leagues. Two other Surrey natives, Jujhar Khaira (Prince George Spruce Kings) and Reece Wilcox (Merritt Centennials) also made the team. The World Junior â€˜Aâ€™ Challenge began Monday, and wraps up Nov. 13.

Runners shine at B.C. meet Peninsula runners of all ages – from school-aged to masters division – were front and centre on the trails of Aldergrove Lake late last month, at 2011 B.C. Cross Country Championships. Among the podium finishers at the Oct. 29 event were Trinity Western University runner, and former White Rock Christian Academy student, Blair Johnston, who took top spot in the seven-km junior men’s race, following by Ocean Athletics’ Deon Clifford, who placed second, 29 seconds back of Johnston. In the five-km junior women’s race, Ocean Athletics’ Peggy Noel was third, while teammate Melanie Oster won silver in the four-km youth women’s event. In the 13-year-old boys division, Ocean Athletics’ Michael Milic captured the gold medal, as did Chelsea Ribeiro in the 14-year-old girls race. Dawson Ribeiro also snagged a podium spot, placing third in the 12-year-old boys four-km run. Danielle Steer picked up a silver medal in the 12-year-old girls run, while Cayla Smith was first, and Hannah Milic third, in the 10-year-old division, which was a two-km race. Two brothers from White Rock Christian Academy also fared well at Aldergrove Park, with Jaxon Mackie, in Grade 6, and Jeremiah Mackie, in Grade 4, each winning their respective

Secondary students that wanted to make a difference and commit to saving water volunteered to join the inaugural year of the Student Ambassador Program. Ambassadors acted as leaders for water conservation by educating their families and peers, monitoring water usage, and reporting their efforts through ﬁve online surveys from July 3rd to July 31st, 2011. We would like to acknowledge the efforts of all 2011 Student Ambassadors and thank them for showing leadership and initiative in our community.

There are however many factors to take into account to arrive at that average of ﬁve years. Some people just decide that being an RMT isn't really what they wanted to do. After all, many of our colleagues are female and in their twenties or thirties, and start a family, and leave the profession at least temporarily. The greatest number however, quit because of physical or emotional burnout. Vicki is in year twenty four of her RMT career. Tina and I are in year twenty three. Why have we lasted so long? It all comes down to two basic things. First you have to have a reasonably strong and resilient body. Secondly a suitable personality is required. A therapist must obviously feel for the patient, but

not so much as to let the patients injury or illness affect them emotionally. It's a ﬁne line. Talking to loved ones of colleagues can help with some of the emotional stuff. A bit of professional counseling is also helpful. Regarding the physical aspect of self care, therapists need to practice what they preach. Get regular massages, do the appropriate exercises and stretches, eat healthfully, and get enough rest. When you think about it these are things that all people should do. Like everyone else we get busy with other aspects of our lives and we slack off on the things that help us stay healthy and strong. Luckily for us an RMT is close at hand, and the knowledge of nutrition and exercise is also readily available. Sometimes a few visits to an RMT, and some regular exercise and stretches can put us back on track. Why not try it? - Arthur Deluis, RMT

Their two-year run as provincial champions is over. The Kwantlen Eagles women’s soccer team lost in the semifinal round of the PacWest provincial championship tournament earlier this month in Kelowna. Kwantlen Polytechnic University had won gold medals in each of the two previous tournaments. After a convincing 3-0 win over Vancouver Island University in their first game of the six-team tournament, the Eagles were eliminated from championship contention with a 1-0 loss to the UBC-Okanagan Heat. They then fell 3-0 to the Langara Falcons in the bronze-medal game Sunday. Kathleen Ehman of Kwantlen was the team’s Player of the
eliminated in Friday’s quarterfinal round. After two hours of scoreless soccer, the Eagles fell 3-1 in a shootout to the UBC-Okanagan Heat. Kwantlen won four of its five regular season games after going winless in the first seven to qualify for the provincials. Hussein Abu of Kwantlen, a defender from Vancouver, was named to the PacWest league’s first all-star team. • Shanay Sangha of the Kwantlen Eagles was named the PacWest Player of the Year in the women’s league. Sangha, a Richmond native, Sangha was the lone Eagle on the PacWest first-all star team, which also includes Briggs of the UBC-Okanagan Heat. Brittany McNeill and Yvamara Rodriguez of Kwantlen were named to the second team.
Game (POG) in the win Friday. Also winning POG honours were Meghan Nilsson on Saturday and Chelsey Lal of Delta on Sunday. Ehman, Kathleen Gratz and Lal were the goalscorers in Friday’s win. • Lindsay Briggs of North Delta was named the Player of the Game for the UBC-Okanagan Heat, 2-1 losers to Thompson Rivers University in the championship game. Briggs scored the Heat goal in the 88th minute. Taylor Sarchett of Surrey was the Heat’s POG in Saturday’s win over Kwantlen, and went on to win the tournament’s Top Midfielder award. • Kwantlen’s men’s team, which staged a fantastic rally late in the season just to qualify for the provincial tournament, was

604-584-8227 ARE DRIVERS TREATED FAIRLY? Recently the Courts have been critical of drivers who have been subjected to a prohibition of their driver's license for failing, refusing or to blowing a warn on a roadside screening test. While the only grounds to review the prohibition is limited to whether the person was driving, had the care or control of the vehicle and whether he failed, refused or blew a warn. Inevitably, the only material the adjudicator has to consider is the reports Àled by the investigating police offer and any material Àled by the driver, none of which is subject to cross-examination. In many cases, the adjudicator uses what seems to be a template accepting the report of the investigating police ofÀcer and rejects the material of the driver, because the police ofÀcer inevitably makes notes at the time, while the unsophisticated driver may not. The Courts have criticized the adjudicator on the basis that it is unfair to the driver to be required to defend himself/herself before he/ she knows the allegations that are being made against him/her. For example, what is the ofÀcer alleging the driver said at the time? The Courts have expressed concern about the reasoning process of the adjudicator, putting the cart before the horse, to rationalize a desired outcome, rather than fairly considering the evidence. So far the Courts have usually ordered a new hearing and it remains to be seen whether the adjudicator will heed the Court's warning. In the meantime, the entire legislation is before the Courts on the issue of whether it is constitutional; keeping in mind the penal consequences; no right to counsel provided; no cross examination allowed; and police are judge and jury.

It is with heavy hearts, we announce the passing of our beloved Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother, Myrtle Gibbings at White Rock, British Columbia. Myrtle passed away peacefully with her family at her side on Sunday October 16. She was the eldest of 6 girls and 3 boys of John and Florence Ardell of Valley Center, Saskatchewan. She was predeceased by her husband Gordon in 1979, her father John in 1957, her mother, Florence in 1947 and her sisters Reta, Elsie, Bessie and Verna, and her brother Bruce. She will be dearly missed by her son Grant (Beryl) of White Rock, British Columbia, her daughter, Verna (Don) of Lethbridge, Alberta, and her son Neil (Edith) of Swift Current, Saskatchewan; 13 Grandchildren and 14 Great Grandchildren. Those left to mourn include her sister, Mina McComb (Carmen) of Calgary, Alberta, her brothers Hugh Ardell (Evelyn) of Abbotsford, British Columbia, and Roy Ardell (Marge) of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Myrtle took her schooling to Grade X at Hazeldene and Arlsa Craig School completing her high school in Zealandia, Saskatchewan. She attended Normal School in Saskatoon. For the next 9 years, Myrtle taught near Hershel and Rosetown, Saskatchewan. In 1939, she married Gordon and they actively farmed together near Rosetown, Saskatchewan. After Gordon's death in 1979 and until her death, she resided in White Rock, British Columbia. She returned to Rosetown to help manage the farm during the summers until the age of 79. Myrtle will be remembered forever for her zest for life, spirited story-telling, being thankful for each day God gave her, and as one who believed in the exercise of the mind and body. An avid reader, bridge player, and letter writer, Myrtle was known for her strong personality, wisdom, and valued counseling. The family would like to give a special thank you to the wonderful staff of the third ﬂoor of the Hogg Pavilion who cared for our mother over the last several years. Their kindness will not be forgotten. We would like to thank Dr. Elizabeth Cant for her care. In lieu of ﬂowers, if you wish, you can make a contribution to a charity of your choice in Myrtle's name. A Memorial Service will be held at Valley View Funeral Home in the Arbor Chapel, 14660 72 Avenue, Surrey, British Columbia at 10:30 A.M. on November 12, 2011.
