Kiwanis Park Place ceases food-services operations after E. coli strikes three last month

Senior dies after bacteria outbreak Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A senior who fell ill as a result of E. coli at South Surrey’s Kiwanis Park Place has died. Fraser Health spokesman Roy ThorpeDorward confirmed Friday that the resident – one of three who tested positive for the bacteria last month – died Nov. 30, six days after officials at the 12850 26 Ave. facility

notified the health authority of an outbreak. Noting the deceased had had other healthrelated complications, Thorpe-Dorward said tests have yet to confirm if the death was caused by the E. coli infection. He did not know the age or gender of any of the victims, but said they were among 257 residents at the senior-oriented complex. Thorpe-Dorward said the positive E. coli

test results were reported to Fraser Health Nov. 21. They were linked to Kiwanis Park Place Nov. 24, by way of victim address. The situation was not made public because exposure was limited to facility residents, further illness was not seen and food-services operations were suspended, he said. Investigation determined the three residents were likely exposed to the bacteria at

one of two group meals served to a total of 31 people between Nov. 8 and 14. The exact point of exposure remains a mystery. “We’ll never be able to know for sure because of the gap in time between when they became ill and when the cases were reported and when the link was made to Kiwanis Park Place,” Thorpe-Dorward said.  see page 4

Local musicians were wailing in force again for the White Rock Blues Society’s Yuletide Blues fundraiser for Sources’ White Rock-South Surrey Food Bank, Sunday at Pacific Inn’s Rhumba Room. Society president Rod Dranfield said organizers were hoping to raise at least $4,000 and 1,000 pounds of food collected at the fifth annual event (tickets were $15 plus two non-perishable food items). Over the past four years, the event has brought in more than $12,000 and 3,500 pounds of food. Among bands and performers participating in this year’s

marathon were society artistic directors Harpdog Brown and Jason Buie, whose suggestion launched the first Yuletide Blues event in 2007. As Dranfield has noted, “the blues has always been the song of downtrodden people and hunger.” Also in the lineup were Steve Kozak, David ‘Boxcar’ Gates (who will represent the society next month at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tenn.), Wes Mackey, Pete Sweetzer, The Harpoonest & The Axe Murderer, Velvet Bulldozer and The Headlines, the Compound Blues Band and Dalannah Gail Bowen.



He served time in the mid-’90s for sexual assault and, early last year, pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography. Now, Cleo Faus (Kip) Gaudry, a White Rock resident and former senior employee with the Corporation of Delta, is set to plead guilty to another sex crime. Gaudry was charged in the fall of 2010 with indecent assault on a female in connection with a 1973 incident in Winnipeg. The Winnipeg Police Service said the case concerned “a historical sexual Kip Gaudry assault involving a child.” According to the court registry, Gaudry is scheduled to enter the plea in Vancouver Provincial Court Wednesday. Gaudry, 60, is the former director of engineering in Delta. This week’s plea would mark his third criminal conviction. In January, Gaudry was handed an 18-month sentence after he pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography.  see page 4

news Flurry of fires A series of Surrey fires last weekend displaced 25 and left several others with injuries. Crews attended one fire Saturday at about 6 p.m., believed to have started in the kitchen of a basement suite in the 8800-block of 140 Street. No one was hurt. Then, at about 10:30 p.m., a shed and mobile home were damaged in the 8200-block of King George Boulevard. Again, no one was hurt. Hours later, at 3:15 a.m., two people suffered injuries in a suite in the 6600-block of 127A Street. The suite was destroyed. Then, at 4:30 a.m. Sunday, neighbouring homes in the 8400-block of 155A Street caught fire, and four families – with a total of 25 people – were displaced. Crews estimate there is close to $1 million damage. The cause of the fire is not known, but officials say it is suspicious. Sunday afternoon, a propane heater being used to keep wet paint from freezing on the inside of a semi truck on 101 Avenue ignited paint fumes, causing a huge explosion. One of two painters suffered first- and second-degree burns; the other man’s injuries were unknown. And on Monday, firefighters attended two calls; the first, a suspected marijuana grow operation in the 6900-block of 152 Street, the other in a vacant home in the 3200-block of 192 Street.

Truck foes stymied by lack of expected support from Surrey council

Lack of city letter ‘embarrasses’ Tricia Leslie Black Press

A group of concerned citizens who want 32 Avenue removed as a designated truck route appeared as a delegation before the TransLink board last week, bolstered by the fact the City of Surrey supported them with a motion at its Oct. 17 council meeting. But members of the 32nd Avenue Community Alliance only learned that support was not in writing when they made their presentation to TransLink on Dec. 7. “There was supposed to be a letter from the City of Surrey, and that wasn’t there,” said Pauline Cremin, a member of the alliance. “We were really quite embarrassed.” Vincent Lalonde, Surrey’s general manager of engineering, said Friday that the council motion was to refer the issue to the transportation committee, which was supposed to meet Nov. 9, but didn’t due to a lack of quorum. The next transportation committee meeting is tentatively set for Dec. 19, when the mayor is

to appoint a chair for the committee, Lalonde said, noting the city needs to “clarify what the TransLink board wants from the city,” and how they expect to assess the city’s request to remove 32 Avenue as a designated truck route). According to minutes from the Oct. 17 meeting, letters were supposed to be written by the city, but no timeframe was indicated. The minutes state Mayor Dianne Watts recommended the alliance present directly to the Trans- Ross Buchanan Link board. “In terms of TransLink, the City of Surrey will provide the delegation with both letters and supplemental information regarding historical requests made to the ministry,” minutes state. “Staff were asked to send a letter of endorsement to the TransLink board on behalf of council requesting a delegation for Ms. Cremin.” As well, the minutes state council requested

“that this item will be included as an ongoing item on the transportation committee agenda,” along with the issue of diesel trucks. Lalonde noted there has been progress since the Oct. 17 meeting, since Watts sent a letter to the Ministry of Transportation asking that ministry gravel trucks stop using the route, which has been busy because of the South Fraser Perimeter Road project. The ministry listened, he said. “In westbound traffic, there was a 34 per cent reduction,” he said. Another alliance member, Ross Buchanan – who challenged Watts in the Nov. 19 election, finishing second with 6,267 votes to her 55,826 – has noted in the past that the group realizes the city is “dealing with a mistake that was made years ago,” when development plans for Campbell Heights were initially made. The 32 Avenue corridor is too narrow for truck traffic, not to mention the safety, health and noise concerns it raises for those living in the area, west of 176 Street, Cremin said.

‘Weekly Wanted’ White Rock RCMP are asking the public to help them locate a man wanted on a B.C.-wide warrant for failing to comply. Tad Walter Mcleod, 45, is described as a 6’1”, 210-pound Caucasian male. He has short, grey hair and brown eyes, and is known to reside in the White Rock/ South Surrey Tad Mcleod area. The appeal was issued last week as part of a new “Weekly Wanted” effort aimed at finding individuals wanted on outstanding warrants. Anyone with information on Mcleod’s whereabouts is asked to contact police at 778-593-3600. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-222-8477.

Amber Alert cancelled An Amber Alert issued Thursday night for an infant believed abducted by her father was called off almost as quickly as it was issued. The alert was initiated by Surrey RCMP just before 7:30 p.m. Dec. 8, after a woman called to report that her daughter had been taken by the child’s father just before 6:30 p.m., during a domestic dispute. The Amber Alert asked citizens to be on the lookout for a specific vehicle that had last been seen near 176A Street and 67 Avenue. The alert was called off after the accused returned with the baby of his own accord, police say. The child was not injured. No arrests were made.

Arun Fryer, a manager at Marine Drive restaurant, Charlie Don’t Surf, says White Rock’s sign bylaw is impacting business at a critical time of year.

Officers directed to uphold new sign regulations after ignoring previous ones

‘Banner year’ for bylaw enforcement Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A rule in White Rock’s sign bylaw that restricts businesses to hanging just one banner per year is akin to kicking business owners when they’re down, say managers of one Marine Drive restaurant. Tracy Gass and Arun Fryer said they were shocked when bylaw officers told them that a banner hung on the railing at Charlie Don’t Surf violates city rules. They first needed to pay $75 for a permit, and then the sign – which is advertising a fish-and-chips deal – could hang for up to 28 days, they were told. While the stipulation is one of many that took effect last January with approval of the city’s new sign bylaw, Gass and Fryer said to enforce the rule during the waterfront’s slowest months of business is “ridiculous.” “The parking lot is empty,” Gass said. “There’s no one in here and we can’t get this special going. How is he (owner John Carroll) supposed to do business down here if we can’t even put a special on?” Paul Stanton, the city’s director of planning and development services, said last week that

news Elgin Creek water levels leaving spawning fish in lurch

Low flow hurting salmon


Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Low water flow in Elgin Creek is leaving salmon heading to spawn in the waterway’s upper reaches stuck downstream. Larry Ramsell, who has watched the coho make the annual trek through his Crescent Road property for decades, said last week he’s seeing dozens of the fish gathering near the culvert that leads to the higher spawning grounds. But that’s as far as many of them are getting. “There’s not enough water coming down the creek and they’re stuck here at my place,” he said Monday. “Forty or 50, just laying there. They’re dying with the eggs in them.” Water flow in Elgin Creek has been an issue for at least a decade. Prior to 2007, lower reaches of the creek would run dry, threatening the coho populations. To ensure the fish had a fighting chance, Ramsell pumped water from his own property. In July 2007, the City of Surrey – with the help of funds from Fisheries and Oceans Canada and the Pacific Salmon Foundation – began pumping water into the creek from an emergency standby well in Sunnyside Acres Urban Forest. Flowing at a rate of 30 litres per second, the pump was intended to augment the creek

Officers in crash An off-duty White Rock police officer heading stateside for Christmas shopping got delayed when she was involved in a collision just north of the border. Const. Janelle Shoihet said she suffered a bruised arm in the crash, which occurred around 11:30 a.m. Dec. 3 at 2 Avenue and 176 Street. Her mother suffered minor injuries. Shoihet’s 18-month-old son was uninjured. She said the crash occurred when an Acura “appeared out of nowhere” to turn onto 2 Avenue as she headed south in the Nexus lane towards the Pacific Highway crossing. Shoihet said she slammed on the brakes but couldn’t prevent her Jeep from hitting the Acura’s passenger-side. “There were pieces of my car all over the road,” she said. The Acura driver – an officer with Canada Border Services Agency – was treated for leg injuries. A 30-year-old Abbotsford man was ticketed for failing to stop at a red light. - Tracy Holmes

Larry Ramsell is worried about the spawning salmon in Elgin Creek. when the water flow was low. Due to problems with the well’s groundwater-level monitor, the pump hasn’t been on for about a month. While Ramsell has tried to fill the gap, “there’s still not enough flow,” he said. “They can’t get up any more than about a half a mile beyond Crescent Road.” Carrie Baron, Surrey’s drainage and environment manager, said Wednesday that the well will be fixed in time for the 2012 dry season. The necessary part has been special-ordered, she said. Noting the pump was never meant for year-round use, Baron said some streamkeepers have grown accustomed to the higher

flows it has created and worry when the levels drop. But the current low flow is not an emergency, she said. “Typically, your streams don’t need it now,” she said. “It’s not like the creek’s gone dry. The salmon aren’t going to die if they don’t have this water right now.” Ramsell, commending the city’s ongoing support, agreed the situation is not dire. But it could be better, he said. “I think we’ll survive,” he said, noting each salmon that successfully spawns lays about 2,500 eggs. “We’ll probably have quite a few fish for next year. “But there could be so much more if these guys could get up.”

news Ravinder Binning still faces hit-and-run charges in 2008 fatality

Plea in separate case comforts victims’ daughter Kevin Diakiw Black Press

A man charged in the hit-and-run death of two Surrey seniors in July 2008 pleaded guilty last week to another driving offence that happened eight months later. Ravinder Singh Binning appeared in Surrey Provincial Court Tuesday, facing charges of flight from a police officer, impaired driving and obstruction of a police officer. He pleaded guilty to all three counts. The March 15, 2009 incident occurred just

months after a fatal crash, for which Binning stands accused, that caused the deaths of Dilbag Singh Badh, 61, and his 60-year-old wife, Bakhshish Kaur Badh. On July 12, 2008, in the 8500-block of 128 Street, a car rear-ended a vehicle carrying the Badh family, including Dillbag, Bakhshish and their daughters, Rupi and Varinder. Dilbag and Bakhshish died at the scene. Two years after the crash, Binning was charged with two counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death, one

count of dangerous operation of a vehicle causing bodily harm and one count of failure to stop at the scene of an accident. Since then, the Badh family has fought for the creation of a vehicular-homicide law, similar to those that exist in the U.S. Varinder Badh attended Tuesday’s trial and said that although it was a separate incident from the one that killed her parents, there was satisfaction in hearing his plea. “He finally has admitted guilt,” Badh said. She pursued him as he left the courtroom.

“Are you a coward?” she asked as Binning walked away. “Be a man. You have no idea of the grief you have caused.” She said later that confronting him felt like an important step. “We wanted to make sure that he knew we weren’t going anywhere and that we were going to continue advocating for this,” Badh said. “His failure of acknowledgement is the frustration.” Binning is due back before the court Dec. 16 for sentencing for the 2009 incident.

Achieving the highest quality using the utmost modern technology.

Trustees Reni Masi, Charlene Dobie and Pam Glass at the Surrey Board of Education’s Dec. 8 meeting.

Surrey trustees sworn in Sheila Reynolds Black Press

It was standing room only at the inaugural meeting of the Surrey Board of Education Dec. 8. And while many in the crowd were there to support the six incumbents and one newly elected trustee, dozens of other attendees were teachers, hoping to draw attention to job action that began in September. Teachers remain without a contract and negotiations with the province are ongoing. Carrying signs reading “You can’t bargain with a sub-zero mandate” and “All I want for Christmas is the learning support I need,” a large crowd of men and women stood outside the glass wall of the meeting room, their placards facing the table of trustees.

The evening marked the first meeting of the board of trustees since the Nov. 19 civic election that saw six of the seven trustees re-elected: Shawn Wilson, Terry Allen, Laurie Larsen, Pam Glass, Reni Masi (all with Surrey First Education) and Laurae McNally, who was acclaimed in White Rock. The only new face is Charlene Dobie, who was elected under the Surrey Civic Coalition banner. After the official swearingin ceremony, McNally was acclaimed as the board’s chairperson for another year, and Wilson remains as vice-chair. Both have held the roles since 2008. McNally thanked her colleagues for returning the gavel to her and welcomed returning trustees back to the board table.

“The public in Surrey clearly thought that you were doing a fine job,” she said. Addressing Dobie, she said she’d find trusteeship “rewarding,” “heartwarming” and at times, “trying,” but promised her no two days would be the same. Prior to the meeting, Dobie said she hoped to continue to fight to get Surrey the capital funding it needs, and would strive to bring more openness to the board of education. “I really believe in communication, so I really want to be out there talking to people,” Dobie said. Dobie was a special-education assistant in the Surrey School District for 14 years, but was forced to resign from her fulltime position to take her role as trustee.

Change needed for report cards aper report cards could become a thing of the past and the current teachers’ job action is showing us how. While many people still cling to the idea of children bringing home a piece of paper with grades and comments at the end of term, it may be time to take another look at this standardized approach. For generations, the industrial-style education system has been fixated on producing graduates like widgets, and report cards have mirrored this model with an overly simplistic analysis of students’ strengths and weaknesses. Admittedly, report cards have been upgraded over the years, with more comments and a reduced emphasis on grades at the primary level, but overall, they haven’t changed much. What educators now know – and B.C.’s new personalized learning agenda aims to address, at least in principle – is that students have different learning styles and require assessments that are measurable, flexible, adaptable and motivating. Grade school students need a plan that more closely reflects their learning styles, interests and goals instead of a standardized set of outcomes and report cards to match. So far, the province has done a poor job in defining personalized learning and conveying exactly what and how it will change B.C.’s education system – and under the current model of labour relations in education, it’s hard to know how this will be achieved. Still, the teachers’ contract dispute has shown there are many ways to assess and report on student learning. Liberated from many administrative duties, teachers are communicating with parents and students by email and telephone, posting information online, sending home records of individual assignments and outlining specific problems that need to be addressed. What’s more, parents are being encouraged to seek out information about their child’s learning. There may be some gaps if parents don’t know how or are unable to communicate with their child’s teacher. In this event, it would have to be up to teachers to reach out. There will always be a need for some standardized assessment and recording, especially for those headed for university, but a piece of paper at the end of term is not now and never has been a fully meaningful record of success for all students.

So far this week you’ve said… yes 32% no 68% 73 responding impaired driving. But that success rate only applies to offenders who actually complete the program. Doyle found several cases where convicted abusers breached their orders to stay away from a spouse, and were not returned to court. There are undoubtedly more, but B.C.’s 450 probation officers can’t keep all the files up to date, much less punish every breach of conditions. Training hasn’t kept up either – fewer than half of current probation officers have completed the ministry’s antispousal abuse course. The NDP deplores all of this and has decades of practice doing so. The part about offenders not completing their rehabilitation reminded me of Dave Barrett in the late 1960s. In his autobiography, Barrett tells how he got into politics because prisoners in B.C. jails weren’t able to complete vocational programs. Barrett was a social worker at the old Haney Correctional Institution. By 1970 he was Opposition leader, demanding that the W.A.C. Bennett government shut down Haney, by then notorious for trades training that prisoners weren’t locked up long enough to finish. Each inmate was costing B.C. more than $4,000 a year, a huge sum wasted, Barrett thundered in the legislature. Today, Doyle calculates B.C. jails cost $71,000 per inmate per year, or $194 a day. Community supervision spending works out to $7 a day.

Intentions not relevant in law Editor: Re: ‘We had a moral right to take that dog,’ Dec. 6. Accused dog-napper Janet Olson said she hopes the legal case against her creates huge public outcry and causes change. No doubt it will, but not in the way nor in the direction she hopes it will. “…with its throat slit ear-to-ear…” What utter BS! None of the dogs taken had anything near so severe as slit throats. These pets were simply left unattended in their yards. This is not a practice I condone, but I can’t connect illegal actions with “humanitarian reasons.” Where is their humane, kind compassion for people, for those whose pets were stolen then sold? Did goodwill intentions go awry? When it comes to breaking the law, good intentions should be irrelevant. One cannot simply perceive an injustice in this country and then appoint oneself as judge and jury. Can you imagine if we all claimed the “moral right” to take something? The accused are grandma’s age – old enough to know better – female, gainfully employed and Caucasians. If they were young, male, jobless and dark-skinned, this case would be regarded very differently. The SPCA has the mandate to investigate animal abuse and should continue to have our support. Warm blankets and food donations will go a long way this winter season. Please give generously to organizations that follow lawful procedures and deserve our respect. Patricia Tyler, Surrey

Don’t pander to tech opponents Editor: Letter writers continually assert that electromagnetic fields (EMF) pose health risks. In its 2004 document entitled What are Electromagnetic Fields: Health Effects, the World Health Organization said: “In the area of biological effects and medical applications of non-ionizing radiation, approximately 25,000 articles have been published over the past 30 years. Despite the feeling of some people that more research needs to be done, scientific knowledge in this area is now more extensive than for most chemicals… WHO concluded that current evidence does not confirm the existence of any health consequences from exposure to low level electromagnetic fields.” We’ve been immersed in EMF for most of our lives. Can doubters claim EMF causes health risks? I suggest those who fear smart meters on the basis of EMF should dispose of all electrical devices because they all produce EMF. News agencies should stop pandering to the vocal minority or, at least, provide a balanced view. Emile Fuchs, Surrey

The level of support for teachers in negotiations with the provincial government splits writers of letters to the editor.

Class action divides community Editor: Re: Surrey teachers protest, Nov.29 Although I’d much prefer critiquing the seven- to 10-digit salaried private and public sector CEOs and billionaires, I nonetheless find the BC Teachers Federation’s utilization of their students as very potent bargaining chips quite disturbing. Or is it naught but just a coincidence that the BCTF’s job action happens to coincide with the beginning of the school year? But what also burns me is the BCTF members’ gall to outright expect to continue receiving regular employee welfare and health benefits – as well as regular generous pay – regardless of the fact that they’re not performing many tasks that are a part of their salary agreement. Meanwhile, B.C. politicians – both those governing and in opposition, as well as many opinion pieces – promote the coddling, so as not to make teachers more angry. It would be interesting to know just how many of the “I-support-the-teachers” parents out there on televised and in print-news media are offering their support mostly out of some degree of fear of retaliation against their children by current and future BCTF teachers. Frank G. Sterle, Jr., White Rock

not changed since March. The BCPSEA maintains a net-zero policy at this time. Given the article on page 3 (B.C. deficit forecast tops $3 billion), this is a reasonable position. Where would the BCTF like the money to come from? More taxes? Cuts in hospital services? Fact is, teachers are in a particularly weak bargaining position. There is an oversupply; the employer doesn’t have money; and the economy is far from buoyant. Given these conditions, you might expect that teachers’ compensation would go down over the contract period. It is time for teachers to take a look around and compare their working conditions to others. Most jobs where a person makes $60,000-70,000 might have four weeks vacation and a work year of 2,160 hours or more. Maybe in three years, conditions will have changed – perhaps the oversupply is reduced, the government is flush and the economy is more buoyant – at which time the BCTF will be in a better bargaining position. Until then, teachers are going to have to ask their representatives to be more reasonable in their demands. In this case, it is the BCTF that is not bargaining in good faith. Teachers are reasonably compensated already. Kurt Friesen, Surrey

Re: No reason ‘net zero’ can’t be met, Nov. 29 letters. Given the BC Liberals’ inability to manage their financial books, I am saddened that no one in the media has questioned the $2.1-billion figure constantly quoted by BC Public School Employers’ Association. Unfortunately, what is not mentioned is that this figure is based on an assumption that every single teacher in the province will take the maximum number of sick days allotted per year. It also maximizes every single teacher to the maximum allowable for their category. Neither assumption is remotely close to the truth. Also not mentioned is that it is the BCPSEA that continually refuses to negotiate at the table. Rather, they prefer to “negotiate” through the media with misleading figures. Just how does one 15-minute supervision shift per week and one four-hour half-day of entering report card grades per term add up to 15 per cent of our salary? Of course, their real intent is to provoke the teachers into a full-out strike – for a minimum of two weeks – so that the government can save $200-300 million in teacher and CUPE salaries, which they can then turn around and supply back into the system. D.A. Harrison, Langley

Re: Report cards leave marks, Dec. 8 letters. As a student, I find it heartbreaking that some are so eager to throw insults and slander at our teachers. For years, our school system has been suffering; this is no fault of the teachers. There is not enough money to uphold the level of education wanted in our province. It is the provincial government that is in charge of where our money goes. I would much rather see enough classrooms, lockers and supplies for all students than a shiny new roof on BC Place. If there is enough money for that multi-million-dollar project, surely there is enough to fund much-needed changes in our schools. There are those who claim teachers “care nothing for the children.” To these people I say, how dare you? Every year, elementary school teachers spend their own money on toys, books, glue, scissors and coloured paper. Many of my high school teachers donate time and energy into running various clubs and sports teams. They receive no additional payment for this, nor for the time they spend outside of school hours marking and preparing lessons. Are these the actions of people who care nothing for the children? I speak to letter-writer Ivan Scott when I say that perhaps the reason we children no longer have respect for society is because society has no respect for us. We are seen only as the thieves, the vandals, the miscreants. If those in control of our education had respect for us, they would build enough schools, buy enough books and provide the personal assistance needed by so many of the challenged children who are falling between the cracks. The reason many students have no respect for society is because those who have stood up for us, our teachers, are being torn down by those in charge of our future. I am 16. I have utmost respect for teachers, parents and fellow students. I have little respect for my government, as they clearly have little respect for my future. Shelby Hughes, Surrey

After reading the Nov. 29 paper, a number of things struck me concerning our teachers’ positions regarding the ongoing action against their employer, the BCPSE. Mostly, it struck me the BCTF is failing them badly. In your letters section, BCPSEA board chair Melanie Joy indicates that in the last year the BCTF and the BCPSEA have been to the bargaining table 55 times (No reason ‘net zero’ can’t be met). Meanwhile, in the article about the T.E. Scott Elementary teachers (Surrey teachers protest), a teacher is quoted as saying the employer will not bargain in good faith. Joy indicates the BCTF’s position started out asking for $2.1 billion in contract improvements, and this has

news Contractor exposed workers to hazardous materials

Jail sought for asbestos violator Tricia Leslie Black Press

A WorkSafe BC lawyer is seeking a jail sentence of six months to a year for a notorious demolition contractor who repeatedly exposed his unprotected workers to asbestos contamination. Last year, Arthur Moore defied repeated orders from WorkSafe BC and then continued his Surrey-based asbestos and drywall removal business in violation of a B.C. Supreme Court injunction granted last August that indefinitely barred him from operating. He was found in contempt of court. “Asbestos kills. It was the leading killer of workers in British Columbia in 2009,

Moore operated at least 15 job sites in Surrey, Richmond and Delta last fall, using names including Tri City Hazmat, Surrey Hazmat and Effective Contracting to skirt the injunction, according to court evidence. He did not show up in court to defend himself at either the 2010 injunction hearing or the contempt proceedings. Repeated attempts by Black Press to contact Moore have been unsuccessful. Moore is to be sentenced Jan. 24 for contempt of court. – with files from Jeff Nagel

Yes. The Wills, Estates and Succession Act is likely to become law in 2012. A marriage will no longer make a previous will void. Increasingly healthy life spans resulted in many more second marriages. Often the newly married second spouses believed "what's yours goes to your children, and what's mine goes to my children." The children of the first spouse to die were often disappointed to discover that the "new" spouse was entitled to the lion's share of their parent's estate. To repeat, when the new law is passed in 2012, a marriage will not make a pre-marriage will void. The definition of "spouse" in other legislation has included persons who are not married to each other but live in a marriage-like relationship for two years. Persons who lived together in a spousal relationship, including a same sex relationship, have had rights to bring a claim to vary a will provided they lived together for the two years up to the date of death of their spouse. Rights of a common law spouse have now been expanded. In a formal marriage the beginning and end of the relationship are documented. It may prove difficult to determine when a common-law ends. Common law spouses rarely have a documented beginning nor is it usual to have a documented ending. The new law leaves the matter of the beginning open and states that a common law relationship can be terminated by one of the spouses without the consent of the other. The courts will have to figure out how that it is to be applied. For example, what will the Courts decide if one spouse is in a weakened condition and his or her aggressive children persuades him or her to terminate the spousal relationship to preserve their own interest in their parent's estate? How will a court handle this if there has been, say, an 18 year relationship of mutual support and love and what will be decided by the court if the relationship is non-existent but the spouses still physically live under the same roof for economic reasons? These will provide conundrums for Judges. The new legislation gives very little leeway for a Judge to exercise discretion to achieve a fair result.

Surrey bureau sees a rise in low-income residents

Making this Christmas bright Tricia Leslie Black Press


ohnny wants a pair of skates, Susie wants a sled. Children around the world and throughout Surrey make wish lists during this festive, cheerful season, filled with wants and needs and fantasies. Toys and games of every size, shape and colour. Dolls and puzzles. Cars and trains. Video games, bikes, sports equipment, iPods, cellphones, tablets, electronic readers and more make the list, causing parents to scramble and stress about how much they should spend on their children – or how much they should go into debt – to make Christmas morning an occasion to remember. When families are in need during a season filled with giving, however, there are no letters filled with wishes to Santa. There are only wishes for shelter, food and warmth; wishes for simply surviving. That’s where the Surrey Christmas Bureau comes in. Decorated with snowflakes hanging from the ceiling, twinkling Christmas lights, red and green signs, garlands of silver and other festive trappings, the Christmas bureau is busier this year than last. People wait in a line outside as well as in a waiting area inside, some wanting to register for a Christmas hamper, while others are there for their alloted pick-up – or shopping – date. “The numbers are really up this year,” said K.C. Gilroy, Surrey Christmas Bureau co-ordinator. “We’re up to 1,500 (hampers) already and expect 2,000 this year total. Last year, we only did 1,600 the entire time.” People have until Dec. 15 to register for the program (if they qualify as low-income), but the past three weeks have already been hectic, Gilroy said. Once someone is registered, a

Gilroy sorts through toys that will be given to children in Surrey. date and time is arranged for them to come in and shop the bureau to fill their Christmas hamper. The amount of gifts allowed varies, depending on the size of the family. Christmas carols play cheerily in the background as clients browse the children’s, teen’s and stockingstuffer sections, which are filled with new toys and games, as well

as used toys. “Teen gifts are always needed,” Gilroy noted. She said the community is always generous, but a quarter of a million dollars needs to be raised annually to keep the year-round program running, and ongoing fundraising is necessary. Receiving corporate sponsorship always helps, Gilroy said, such

as the help they’re getting from Surrey’s Comfort Inn & Suites, which held its first-ever ‘Stuff the Bus’ event on the weekend to raise new toys and funds for the Christmas bureau. Contact Surrey Christmas Bureau at www.christmasbureau. com – or call 604-581-9623. The office is located at 10347 City Parkway (the old Whalley library).

Support needed for kettle campaign The Salvation Army’s Surrey kettle campaign is getting off to a slow start this year. The charitable organization is down by more than $18,000 compared to last year, and far from the financial goal of $250,000. Funds donated during the Christmas Kettle Campaign provide the total budget for the services provided to Surrey residents through the Salvation Army’s Surrey Community Family Services. Ongoing support is provided by the service group, from clothing and food to children’s programs and treatment referrals for drug or alcohol abuse. “In not meeting our budget goals, we are unable to help everyone who comes to us seeking assistance,” states a release. Kettles are located throughout Surrey and North Delta at various sites, including grocery stores, shopping malls and BC Liquor stores. The Salvation Army urges local residents to “please be generous and help us continue to help others” when they pass a red kettle. Those unable to locate a kettle can also donate online at www. The Salvation Army began its work in Canada in 1882 and has grown to become the largest non-governmental direct provider of social services in the country, providing services to thousands.

Calendar celebrates life in ‘city by the sea’ Alex Browne


Arts Reporter

t’s more than a calendar – it’s a defining statement. Tourism White Rock’s new 2012 art calendar – White Rock, City By The Sea! – is a summing up of the many things residents know the city to be. But it’s also one that offers hints of what the town could become. Incorporating the blue borders and design notes of the city’s new official branding, the latest edition is a classy classic – a feel-good celebration for residents to hang up and refer to, and everything they’d like to project about the city as a gift to relatives and friends. “The idea is to invite people Alex Browne photo in, and this is the invitation Tourism White Rock’s Betina Albornoz chats with artist Michael card,” said Tourism White Stockdale at the launch of the 2012 art calendar (right) last month. Rock executive director Betina Albornoz. involved gathered for the formal Accompanying text links each As in the past two years, it’s launch last month at TD Canada of the paintings to a theme, such a tapestry she’s envisioned and Trust at Central Plaza. as heritage, cultural diversity, encouraged into The calendar brings entertainment and festivals, family existence – with life and wellness. ❝There is no other together works by the advice of an Michael Stockdale, Mike In keeping with the ‘city by brochure that informal panel of art Svob, Carolynn Doan, the sea’ branding, the waters of people will hang Catherine Robertson, appreciators, including Semiahmoo Bay feature in almost a special assist from on their walls for Robert Genn, Claudette every painting.

But Albornoz is hopeful subsequent editions will incorporate other elements of the White Rock scene, including uptown landmarks. It’s clear the project has potential far beyond the current edition, including the possibility of similar arts-inspired gifts and souvenirs to promote the community, Albornoz said. “I think it’s a very special project to work with, because it involves so many stakeholders,” Albornoz said, noting the project is a selffunded product that relies on previous years’ sales. “It has a limited shelf-life,” she admitted. “But there is no other

brochure that people will hang on their walls for 365 days. “My favourite part is working with the artists and weaving the story together, but trying to calibrate the paintings for colour and contrast is a very labourintensive job.” “It’s a nice cross-section of artists and a good representation of the artists we have in the community,” Doan said at the launch, adding she was surprised her impressionistic view of a freight train passing in front of White Rock’s old station building is her third painting to be selected since the calendar’s first edition in 2009. Stockdale – whose colourful waterfront views were chosen for both the cover and the June painting – said he appreciated the chance the project gave him to interact with residents. “I’m always glad to meet people, otherwise the existence of an artist becomes a bit like that of a recluse,” he said. “It’s a very nice calendar, with lots of good artists featured, and very educative about the nature of White Rock.” McDonald, whose muted beach scene creates an appropriately wintry mood for November, said he feels that projects like the calendar are crucial in enshrining the arts as a key component of the White Rock identity. “Anything that keeps the arts in view and in front of the public is a good thing,” he said.

Fraser Health launches new website to help patients

Surgeon search moves online Fraser Health launched a new online tool last week to showcase surgeons in the region. With the new website, patients and physicians can find the names of surgeons who may be able to perform surgical procedures sooner than others. Users choose from a drop-down list of surgeries. A list will then be shown of five surgeons in Fraser Health who are predicted

to be able to perform the surgery sooner than expected. With more than 250 surgeons operating in 10 hospitals, it has been a challenge in the past to know all of the region’s surgical health specialists and their predicted wait times for surgery. Entitled the Soonest Surgery Tool, the website is It uses data that Fraser Health

,61¡7,77,0(" *52830(1725


provides daily for the Ministry of Health’s Surgical Patient Registry, with calculations based on the number of procedures that the surgeon has performed in the last four months and the number of patients on their wait list. The website also provides information on how to prepare for surgery, including checklists, postsurgery care and how family and friends can help.

Southridge, WRCA drop Telus Classic openers

Lessons learned for senior squads Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Though neither the Southridge Storm nor White Rock Christian Academy Warriors won last week’s Telus Basketball Classic, the prestigious tournament was still something of a learning experience for both South Surrey teams. For the Storm senior boys, who play at the AA level, the tournament was a chance to sharpen their skills against some of the best AAA teams in the province, and for the Warriors – among the province’s topranked AAA teams heading into the season – it was a wake-up call. “I’m obviously upset by it, but for the team to learn from this, I think that was very important,” said WRCA coach John Dykstra, who saw his team drop its opening game 67-58 to Pitt Meadows Wednesday, before bouncing back to beat Richmond’s R.C. Palmer 80-56 Friday. “We were in all the games, even though we were playing poorly.” The trouble for WRCA, Dykstra said, came from his players trying

to do too much themselves, which lead to a cacophony of turnovers and ball-handling errors – especially late in games. “We just weren’t taking care of the ball, and we had guys trying to do too much on their own,” he said. “When we take care of the ball, we can be a special team, but the guys just have to pass it instead of trying to do it all themselves.” In Wednesday’s loss, which knocked them from title contention right away, the Warriors got 12 points from six-foot-seven forward Jake Newman, and 11 apiece from Vartan Tanielian and Tyus Allen, but the WRCA defence was unable to contain Pitt Meadows’ Matt Blackaby, who had 31. Against Palmer, Newman again led the charge with 18 points, and was one of five Warriors to finish in double figures. For Southridge, who also lost their opening game to eventual finalists Vancouver College – who lost in the title game to the Kelowna  see page 20

‘For us, it was a really good battle’  from page 19 Owls – the tournament was a chance to see how they’d match up against top competition. And in that regard, the week was a success, said head coach Steve Anderson. “Overall, I’d say it turned out pretty well,” he said. “We were up against schools that are a lot big-

ger than us, and better than most of the teams we’re going to play in our league.” After losing 94-58 to Vancouver College, Southridge dropped an 89-77 decision to Churchill, who are a top-10 AAA school in B.C. “There were stretches where we played really, really well –

we got to within six points of Churchill in the fourth quarter at one point, but just couldn’t get over the hump. “For us, it was a really good battle. It was good for us.” Anderson was especially pleased with the play of Ben Severide and Shahbaj Dhillon, who he said “were outstanding for us.”

sports Surrey loses, ties Coquitlam Express in weekend series

Eagles’ struggles continue Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

A week after winning just one of three games, the Surrey Eagles continued to struggle last weekend, losing to the Coquitlam Express 4-1 Friday night, and tying them on home ice Saturday, 3-3. The Eagles are still third in the BC Hockey League’s Coastal Conference, but are just 4-5-1-0 in the last 10 games, and below .500 on the road. On Friday at Coquitlam’s Poirer Sports and Leisure Centre, the Eagles struck first when newcomer Alex Hagen – acquired in a trade with the Vernon Vipers last week – scored a power-play goal 14:16 into the first period, but the Express tied the game with just over a minute left in the period. In the second period, the home team broke the game open on goals from Malcolm McKinney and Dante Godhino – with McKinney’s marker coming just 42 seconds into the period – and Godhino tallied his second of the game on a third-period power play. Eagles’ netminder Andrew Hunt was tagged with the loss, despite stopping 34 shots on net. The following night, in front of 630 fans at South Surrey Arena, the Eagles again got on the board first when NCAA-bound blueliner Devon Toews – who signed with Quinnipiac University earlier this month – scored at 10:02 of the first period. But just like the day before, Coquitlam stormed back before

Coquitlam went up 3-1 after a second-period power-play goal from Cody Michelle. Surrey forward Tyler Morley made it 3-2 later in the second period, and a shorthanded goal from Brett Mulcahy tied the game with 5:09 left in the game. Neither overtime frame – the first played four-on-four, the second played three-on-three – solved anything. Another Eagles’ newcomer, 19-year-old forward Brayden Jaw, tallied assisted on all three goals Saturday. Jaw had been with the Nanaimo Clippers – he had four points in six games – but as he was injured and no longer carded and on the Clips’ official roster, he was free

to sign with any team he liked. The six-foot-two Vancouver native is no stranger to the Peninsula; he played three games for the Eagles during the 2008/09 season. Jaw is committed to play at Harvard next season. To make room for Jaw on the roster, the Eagles released D.J. Jones.

Teddy Bear Toss The Eagles will hold their annual Teddy Bear Toss during Sunday’s home game against the Prince George Spruce Kings. Fans are encouraged to bring small or medium stuffed toys to the game, and then toss them on the ice after the Eagles’ first goal. Donations will benefit the Centre for Child Development. Sunday’s game is set for 4 p.m.

Curlers ready for Cup showdown in Langley The biggest curling competition in the Lower Mainland â&#x20AC;&#x201D; save for the 2010 Olympic Games â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is six weeks away and will be contested at the Langley Events Centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Prior to the Olympics, the last big event like this was 1997,â&#x20AC;? explained Neil Houston, the event manager for the 2012 World Financial Group Continental Cup, referring to the 1997 Scott Tournament of Hearts, which was played in Vancouver. The Continental Cup will take place Jan. 12-15 at the LEC. It features the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top curlers in a Ryder Cup-style format. Six teams from North America â&#x20AC;&#x201D; four Canadian and two American â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will play against six from the rest of the world. The two sides play a variety of disciplines â&#x20AC;&#x201D; regular team matches, mixed doubles, singles, mixed skins and skins games â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for points, with the first side to reach 200 points declared the winner. Houston, who worked for VANOC for the 2010 Games and then returned to his previous job with the Canadian Curling Association, has been working on the competition since November 2010, when Langley was announced as the host. He recently secured the bands who will play at the Patch, which is housed adjacent to the arena in the Langley Events Centre. The Patch has capacity of 1,100 and promises to feature the most colourful and passionate curling fans. March Hare will play Jan. 11, the Time Benders take the stage on Jan. 12 and The Chevelles will rock the Patch on Jan. 13 and 14.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;People may have forgotten there is an entertainment element in addition to the curling,â&#x20AC;? he said. Two hundred and seventy-five volunteers will help the tournament in its dayto-day operations. ickets are still available for the competition. Competing for Team North America are Team Holland, Team Stoughton, Team Fenson, Team Howard,Team Lawton and Team Lank. That group includes the 2011 Scotties champions as the top womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team in Canada (Reginaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Team Holland led by skip Amber Holland) and the 2011 world menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s champions, Winnipegâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Team Stoughton, skipped by Jeff Stoughton. Team Fenson, skipped by Pete Fenson, are the U.S. menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s champions and won bronze at the 2006 Olympics. And the Lank rink is skipped by Patti Lank, one of the most successful competitors in U.S. curling history. She will be making her third appeareance at the Continental Cup. Team World is made up of two Scottish and two Swedish teams and one each from Norway and China. Swedenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Team Norberg is skipped by Anette Norberg, the two-time defending Olympic womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s champion, having captured gold at both the 2006 Games in Turin and 2010 in Vancouver. The other Swedish entry, Team Edin, skipped by Niklas Edin, is making their second straight appearance at the Continental Cup. They also won bronze at the 2011 world menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s championship after having beaten their soon-to-be teammates, Norwayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Team Ulsrud,

skipped by Thomas Ulsrud. Scotlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Team Muirhead is led by Eve Muirhead, who has the

distinction of being the first skip to represent her country in both the senior and junior world championships

9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1

in the same year. She also won silver at the 2010 womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s curling championships and is a four-time world junior

champion. The other rinks are Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Team Wang and Norwayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Team Brewster.

HOU, Lee Gan December 20, 1929 December 5, 2011 Lee Gan Hou passed away peacefully at St. Paul’s Hospital on December 5, 2011 at the age of 81. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother who gave of herself unselfishly to serve her family and others around her. She will always be remembered for her smile, her kindness, her hard working nature, her gentle spirit and love and devotion for her family. Born and raised in Hoi Ping, China, Lee Gan moved to Labasa, Fiji to be with her husband, Yok Fung, and together raised six children and started their own business. Over a decade later, they immigrated to Canada and settled in White Rock running two successful grocery businesses (founders of Howe’s Market), before retiring and then travelling the world together. Lee Gan was predeceased by husband (Jim) Yok Fung Hou. She is survived by her loving children Susan (Alan), Wally (Pauline), Olwyn (Victor), Linda, Lydia and Alfred, and grandchildren Alyssa, Kyle, Carl, Lauren, Chloe, Adrian, Michael, Paige, Isabella, Sierra and Jade. The beautiful memories of Lee Gan Hou will be treasured forever by her family. A Celebration of her life will be held at 9:00 AM on Sunday, December 18th at the Glenhaven Memorial Chapel, 1835 E Hastings Street, Vancouver, BC. Interment at 11:00 am at the Ocean View Burial Park. In lieu of flowers, in-memory donations may be made to the Kidney Foundation of Canada.

of White Rock, British Columbia, passed away peacefully on November 21, 2011, in Peace Arch Hospital, following complications from a stroke. Her wishes to have no extraordinary measures taken to sustain life were adhered to and a comfortable, honourable and graceful departure ensued. Rose Mary was born on February 11th, 1922, in Calgary, Alberta, becoming the first daughter of Mr. Asa and Mrs.Elizabeth Rosby. From a very early age, Isabel as she would like to be called, enjoyed helping around the house and soon excelled at the talents and skills that would prove invaluable to an exceptional homemaker throughout her life. As a child she with her parents and siblings came west to Vancouver, British Columbia and eventually a move outside the city that would see the family settle in the White Rock area, on Pacific Highway. A chance encounter between a youthful Rose Mary and a young man from the area at a dance at the Hazelmere Hall was where she would fall in love with John Dilworth and so began the next stage of her life. Following their marriage on April 6th, 1942 the couple would settle in South Surrey, on Sunny Side Road, where she would spend over six decades, tending the land, raising a family and carving out a simple honest existence within the community. Over the years the family would work hard cultivating the landscape and developed a loyal following amidst the locals who were always eager for the delectable flavours provided by the season’s crops. When not hard at work toiling over the endless chores the lifestyle of farming is entrenched in, one of her greatest joys was to be amidst nature, most notably adventures involving the spectacularly scenic rivers and lakes of BC and the surrounding region. Normally rather reserved, the exhilaration she exuded could be felt when she spoke fondly of a day logging endless miles along the banks of the Skagit, with she on one shore and John on the other, all efforts concentrated in pursuit of the ever-elusive gifts from the river. Her own words captured well the images of the experience that she so looked forward to, “There is nothing better than being rewarded with the ultimate prize that concludes yet another hard day’s work, accompanied by the feeling of utter fulfillment and the simple pleasure that comes from a job well done, then topping it all off by bearing witness to the fruits of one’s labours, as it cooks perfectly over the campfire”. Together she and John navigated many miles of open road and likely nearly as many miles of shoreline, in the quest of capturing a connection with the outdoors and the amazing feeling one experiences being part of nature. A sought after connection with the wonders of the natural beauty that surrounds us, is equally shared by both of her sons and serves as a testament to the positive foundation she helped lay for them. Following the passing of her lifetime’s love, John in 2002, she with ever greater assistance from her sons continued residing at and maintaining the farm for several more years. Alas in the face of never ending to-do lists and a deteriorating ability to keep up with responsibilities, she somewhat reluctantly moved to the Crescent Gardens community, a short distance from where she had lived for most of her life. During her later years many ailments along with ever debilitating arthritis would begin to make it difficult to recognize the once robust woman who would spend from dawn til dusk taking care of anything and everything that needed to be done. Although her newfound environment, in a manageable home within a setting that seemed conducive to her needs, was indeed a practical option for a single woman of her years, it was evident to all, no home could ever replace her dear homestead on Sunny Side Road. Despite her best intentions to maintain a few small flower and vegetable beds, along with efforts to find comfort in the companionship of her dog “Koi”, the essence of what defined a practical and hardworking Isabel would be lost forever with the leaving behind of her magnificent gardens, bountiful orchards and her beloved farm. When her fierce independence was further challenged following the first of a series of devastating falls, resulting in broken bones and extensive rehabilitation, she found herself among the residents of Christina Place, in White Rock. During the couple of years in independent living she managed to carry on a quiet reserved existence, connecting with a handful of those she came in contact with, otherwise content to pass the days awaiting the latest news from her sons and on the special occasion a welcomed visit from extended family. In a turn about of fate, the separation that death once brought with it, this time brings the unanticipated delight of a renewed unity. Together again and at peace, Isabel and John are now free to spend their days exploring the countless undiscovered wonders of nature and the best fishing holes any angler could ever dream of. With the hard work all done, nothing left to do but pull on the hip waiters, grab her fly rod and join in the fun down stream… Listen close next time you are near a running river and over the sound of rushing water you’ll hear John calling out “Isabel, where are you, what’s keeping you?”. Following a brief pause you’ll fondly recognize the voice shouting back “You go on ahead, I’ll catch up, I’ve got my hands full with a real dandy and he’s putting up a pretty good fight!” Rose Mary, affectionately known as “Balloon Granny” is survived by and will be very dearly missed by her sons Dave, his wife Jan and Terry, his wife Linda; also by her sister Betty (and family), her sister-in-law Margaret (and family) and by siblings in Ontario, as well as by grandchildren Kelly (Randy), Rick, Kristen (AJ), Leanne (Steve), and by great-grandchildren Mackenzie, Emily, Lucas, Mitchell and Gabby. The family would like to thank the staff of Christina Place for their dedication to the great work they do focusing on maintaining the quality of life and the lengths they go to creating a “home” for those in their care. A heartfelt thank you is also extended to the nursing staff and care providers of ICU and the Palliative Care Unit at Peace Arch Hospital, whose caring efforts benefit all in the community. At this time it seems appropriate for all to be reminded of the need for support of our local hospital and community health services. It is hoped that those whose lives have been touched by local healthcare will remember to give generously in support of the Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation.
