Early polls way up

Voters make history Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Advance turnout for this year’s civic election is surpassing any in Surrey’s history, indicating there may be a large number of voters coming out to the polls on general voting day, Nov. 19. In the advance polls over the last week, 6,489 people cast ballots. That almost doubles the 3,700 voters who showed up during week-long advance polls three years ago, and even eclipses the 4,900 who took early voting opportunities during the 2005 mayoral slugfest between Dianne Watts and Doug McCallum. In fact, it’s a greater number than has ever been seen at the early polling stations, city staff say. Describing action at Surrey’s advanced polls as brisk and steady, city staff are excited by the high turnout, which represents 2.32 per cent of registered voters.  see page 4

Impaired-driving conviction for fatality should be overturned, says defence lawyer

Berner ‘not advised of rights prior to questioning’ Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

The B.C. Court of Appeal reserved judgment and extended bail Thursday afternoon in the hearing for Carol Berner – the woman found guilty of impaired driving in the 2008 death of toddler Alexa Middelaer. Berner, who is appealing two counts of dangerous driving and two counts of impaired driving, did not attend proceedings as spectators packed the courtroom – though she was in the building, having been ordered to surrender herself on the hearing date. The 58-year-old was sentenced in November 2010 to 2½ years in prison and a five-

year driving ban, but has been free on bail for the past year, pending her appeal. In Vancouver Thursday – as Alexa’s mother, Laurel Middelaer, and aunt, Daphne Johanson, listened – Berner’s lawyer, David Tarnow, told judges that his client was effectively detained at the collision scene when she was left in a locked police car for about 30 minutes; that Berner wasn’t advised of her charter rights before she was questioned in that car; and that the officer didn’t have reasonable suspicion before administering a road-side breath test, in which Berner blew a ‘fail.’ Tarnow asked the judges to find that a statement Berner made to the officer while in the

car about having consumed two glasses of wine more than three hours earlier “should have been ruled inadmissible.� “Even if you’re not with me on that, I submit the reasonable suspicion test has not been met,� he said. “It is my respectful submission that (the officer) was on a fishing expedition and could not have had a reasonable suspicion the appellant still had alcohol in her body.� Madam Justice Catherine Ryan told Tarnow she and Justices Kathryn Neilson and Elizabeth Bennett, on that issue, have to “see if somebody admits to drinking that afternoon and being involved in a horrific  see page 4

news SCC opposes province-wide BC Hydro wireless monitoring devices

Surrey candidate seeks smart-meter ban Alex Browne Staff Reporter

Surrey Civic Coalition councillor candidate Gary Robinson has come out swinging against B.C. Hydro’s smart-meter program. He vows that, if elected on Nov. 19, he will introduce a bylaw to “prohibit installation of the so-called smart meters in Surrey” – citing health and privacy concerns and a general public antipathy to the meters that he has heard while campaigning. But Mayor Dianne Watts said she and fellow Surrey First candidates are taking no position on smart meters until all sides of

the issue are heard in public forum. “It’s important on an issue this significant to do due diligence,” she said, adding that council has approved delegations over the next few weeks from both smart meter opponents and BC Hydro representatives. “It’s inappropriate to make such an important issue part of the election.” While advocates of BC Hydro’s installation of smart meters claim they provide more efficient monitoring and management of energy use – well within accepted safety standards for transmitted wireless signals – opponents claim smart meters contribute to migraine

headaches, nausea, sleep disorders, heart palpitation and a range of other ailments associated with microwave radiation. Robinson charges that rate increases in other jurisdictions have shown the smartmeter program is foremost a “cash grab” in which rates are increased for peak periods of use, whenever they occur. Health concerns have already figured in decisions in Australia and parts of California to abandon smart meters, he said. As a means of managing energy use, he said, smart meters have “been shown to fail everywhere they have been adopted.”

“I’ve talked to my colleagues on the SCC slate and they support me on this,” he said. “It’s one place Surrey can show some leadership. People on city council are too busy giving themselves awards to address an issue of concern to its citizens.” But Watts said she has a “significant” concern about reported Hydro policy that if people choose not to have smart meters installed, they will be without power. “That’s why we’ve invited BC Hydro to come forward and lay out their program,” she said. “We want all the facts presented, and an opportunity to hear the community.”

Guilty plea in fatal crash Sheila Reynolds Black Press

A teen driver charged in connection with a crash that killed another Surrey teenager, Sanjeeve Sharma, pleaded guilty in court Monday morning. The driver, who was 16 at the time of the offence and cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, was charged with dangerous driving causing death Clean-cut and wearing a dark suit, the now-18-year-old stared straight ahead as his lawyer, Russ Chamberlain, entered the plea in Surrey Provincial Court. Sharma, 15, died in June 2009 when the car he was in slammed into an SUV near 128 Street and 82 Avenue in Newton. Initial police reports indicated speed and alcohol were factors. Several of Sharma’s family members – wearing T-shirts reading “Glory is Forever” and “Only the Good Die Young” – heard the plea. Though pleased they don’t have to endure a trial, Sharma’s father isn’t convinced the guilty plea means the driver has taken responsibility. “It’s legal advice,” said Sanjay Sharma. “It’s not him.”

Carpooling rewarded at South Surrey Park & Ride

Move to curb illegal parking frustrates at bus loop Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

An effort to reduce congestion and illegal parking at the South Surrey Park & Ride has led to the introduction of 13 stalls designated for those who carpool. But while TransLink officials say the move is hoped to encourage more people to share their ride – and avoid the need to tow vehicles being parked illegally – at least one woman says it will do little to ease the problem at the well-used facility. “Give me a break,” said Tina Hartnell, a South Surrey resident whose 20-year-old daughter takes transit to Langara College. “You’re assuming that these people are all on the same schedule.” Hartnell’s daughter was among commuters who returned to the lot last month to find a notice on their vehicle warning they could be towed in the future if found parked illegally. The curbs have since been painted yellow, and warning signs have been installed, Hartnell said this week. TransLink spokesman Drew Snider told Peace Arch News the initial warnings were

issued when it was recognized the problem was growing. He said TransLink’s customer service has been fielding five to 10 complaints per month regarding problem parking at the lot, including some calls from people who have returned to find their vehicle boxed in. Other illegally parked commuters have actually affected bus operations, he said. “We’re not about to start towing people, but we have to look at practical solutions to what has become a dangerous… inconvenient situation,” Snider said. The South Surrey Park & Ride, located near the King George Boulevard exits to and from Highway 99, has 481 parking stalls. In recent weeks, commuters arriving to find the lot full have taken to parking along the curbs and even the exit lane that leads towards the King George. Snider said a customer survey – determining 91 per cent of those who use the parkand-ride are driving to and from the lot alone – made further efforts to encourage carpooling a logical step. While Hartnell suggested the lot be

Cars line the curb at South Surrey bus stop. expanded, Snider said that option is not financially viable at this time. He confirmed, however, that negotiations “to develop a longer-term solution” are underway, and include the City of Surrey. A Nov. 3 email to Hartnell from Surrey’s rapid transit and strategic projects manager, Paul Lee, confirms that city staff have been advised of a future plan to double the lot’s current stalls. Lee also confirms the necessary funding – millions of dollars – has not been included in TransLink’s latest financial plan. Snider is optimistic the carpooling program will help.

“If you can get more people into each car, it would stand to reason it frees up more spaces,” Snider said. “It’s not going to be the be-all and end-all.” Those interested in taking advantage of the new system may apply online (www. translink.ca/driving/carpooling.aspx) for a carpool pass to reserve one of the stalls. The spots are available to those with a valid pass who arrive with at least two people in the registered vehicle. If there is more demand than the stalls can accommodate, priority will be given vehicles with the most riders. A similar program offering 27 stalls for carpoolers is in place at the Scott Road SkyTrain Park & Ride. Snider said TransLink’s ‘Carpool Hero’ program, which is offering opportunities to win fuel, parking passes and ferry passes, is further incentive for commuters to get onboard. He acknowledged there is no guarantee that the program will take off as hoped. “It’s always a gamble. How well did we predict how successful the park-and-ride’s going to be? Almost 500 spaces – we figured that was going to be enough.”

Advertising may explain busy polls  from page 1 It is the third best percentage in the city’s history. In 1980, four per cent of registered voters showed up to the early polls. All of this could be a harbinger of what is to come on election day, Nov. 19. In 2005, 35.4 per cent of registered voters came out to cast their ballots on election day. If this year’s turnout passes that, it will

be the greatest showing in more than 20 years (37.95 per cent of voters participated in 1990). Several factors could be at play to explain the high turnout at advance polls, including an effective advertising campaign by the city letting people know of the early voting, along with a dynamic competition for mayor, council and school board.

It also indicates there’s effective get-out-the-vote machines in two party camps, both in Surrey First and the Surrey Civic Coalition. In White Rock, with one day left of three advance-voting opportunities, 329 voters have taken part. The last chance to vote in advance is today (Wednesday), until 8 p.m. at White Rock Community Centre, 15154 Russell Ave.

editorial

Candidates have days left to prove worthy ore and more, elections – at all levels of government – are becoming contentious, as candidates throw dirt at each other in an attempt to curry favour with voters. But mud-slinging aside, elections are, at their core, a great opportunity to explore fresh ideas about the way we’re going to move forward over the next few years. And as civic campaigns move into the final week – voters go to the polls Saturday, Nov. 19 – and as voters listen to the candidates, they should keep a few questions in mind: Do candidates truly understand the issues of the community? Do challengers have ideas to follow criticism? Are these ideas affordable? What are the consequences of the change being promoted? The first one seems obvious. Except that in every election – federal, provincial and municipal – there are candidates who run on a single issue, although the jobs of elected officials involve myriad tasks and problems. So here’s a suggestion for candidates: Don’t just tell us what you’re against. Tell us what you are also for, and how you’re going to achieve it. Tell us what it’s going to cost and how it will be paid for. In other words, do your homework. And if you haven’t done so already, the clock is ticking. Do candidates also understand the limits of the office they’re seeking? Municipal governments and school boards are creatures of provincial legislation. Their powers are clearly defined. And although those powers continue to evolve, they remain limited. Vision and ideals are important, but they need to be grounded in reality. Which brings us to the third question: Are they practical? Candidates could promise to cut our tax burden in half, hire twice the number of police officers and firefighters, or cut the budgets of other departments. But they need to demonstrate the implications of these suggestions. A freeze on spending may mean reduced services (or the need for alternative sources of revenue) because of factors like inflation. Being a politician may appear easy – until you become one.

So far this week you’ve said… yes 46% no 54% 75 responding sector rates. Not enough people care. The Canadian Union of Public Employees is campaigning against contracted private development of water utilities. They prefer their high-cost monopoly. And outside their special interest support, not enough people care. School board elections have become even more of an insider activity. To take one example, a school trustee candidate forum in Abbotsford last week started with a protest march by 18 teachers. They carried their message inside, demanding smaller classes, more specialneeds support – familiar demands in their relationship with the provincewide bargaining agent. Of course, school trustees have no actual authority over these huge and costly issues. The province took away school board taxing authority long ago, because the teacher and support staff unions have the money and voting numbers to control low-turnout local elections. Now the unions have to settle for vetting candidates according to their willingness to lobby the B.C. government on behalf of unions. There are still things you can do to compare candidates, and it doesn’t take long to sort through a dozen or two hopefuls. Please, check this paper’s website for recent surveys and stories on the local candidates, and take some time on Saturday to back the people who you think have the best experience and understanding of the community’s needs.

Not going to take it anymore Editor: Re: ‘Occupy’ movement is just another squat, Nov. 8. Yes, I do agree with columnist Tom Fletcher that we have numerous social problems in our society with the haves and havenots, but he appears to be out of touch with the overall goals of the ‘occupy’ movement. People are demonstrating throughout the world against those they feel helped to widen the gap between the most wealthy and the rest of us. They blame the banks, corporations, government and media as the most powerful players leading to this shift over the last 30 years. The message is loud and clear. We are not going to take it anymore. Pat Lyonsramsay, White Rock

The power to be prepared Editor: There are those who claim BC Hydro doesn’t need the electricity it is purchasing from independent power producers. Well, I beg to differ. BC Hydro clearly isn’t able produce enough electricity now from the aging dams it owns, let alone 10 years from now when demand will be even greater. The time to prepare ourselves for the electricity demands of tomorrow is today. By developing the province’s renewable-energy resources today, we would be preparing ourselves for the future and creating good jobs. By importing electricity from the U.S. and Alberta to meet growing demand in B.C. – as BC Hydro appears to be planning to do – we would essentially be exporting jobs we could be creating here in B.C. Let’s tap our renewable-energy resources, keep good jobs here in B.C. and be ready for the future. Charles Davis, White Rock

speed – is tolerated, why in the world is the speed limit 30 km/h? Many times, I have been tempted ask an officer just how fast a driver has to be going before they make a move. Evans is also dead-on about the early-morning commute, as well. I live on Marine Drive, and 60-80 km/h or more is the norm, not the exception. Never have I seen a police vehicle out there between 7 and 8 a.m. Rainy days, same deal, since everyone knows that there won’t be police presence in the pouring rain. The other big problem is drivers failing to stop for pedestrians at the crosswalks. I don’t know how many times I’ve tried to cross at Marine and Kent, and the amount of drivers oblivious to what is going on around them is astounding. Again, part of that problem is due to speeding. The other is still drivers with cellphones glued to their ears. I’ve asked time and again why we cannot have some stop signs along Marine to slow things down. The sign coming into White Rock from the east is not effective. Firstly, the sign does not flash the speed limit on a continuous basis. Vehicles have to get quite close to it before it reacts. Secondly, even when some drivers see it and actually do slow down, it doesn’t take long before they pick up speed again. Even though east-side and west-side residents pay the same property taxes, because the east end is dual jurisdiction, we seem to be in limbo, while White Rock and Surrey figure out what to do. The west end received remedies to the speeding problem there. Now it’s time to get the east end

remedied before someone gets hit by some idiot going 80 km/h in a 30 km/h, knowing that the chances of getting caught are slim to none. Sharon Hollas, White Rock

No incentive to stop thieves Editor: Re: They don’t care that it hurts us, Nov. 3 letters. This letter brought it all back for me. It happened to me a few months ago, and I was so tempted to write about it but somehow I just let it go, because I realized that it was my own fault – I let my guard down. But, darn it, why should people have to guard everything they have all the time for fear of being robbed? We were parked at Crescent Park while we took our grandson for a walk. I am a very conscientious person and make it a point not to leave my purse in my car. That day, however, I made a bad decision and I decided to hide it in the back underneath a jacket. As it turns out, I was told later that thieves are actually lurking in the bushes watching for this. We were on our way back to the car and not too far away, when we heard the smashing glass and the car alarm go off. We were about a minute late; the thieves had grabbed the bag and sped off in an older vehicle that was difficult to identify. A polite cop came and took the details. But, as he said, “it happens all the time, every day,” and there is not much they can do about it.

I only had about $20 in the purse. I was sorry to lose my cellphone though. I was particularly sad to have lost a special and expensive handbag that had recently been given to me as a gift. That can’t be replaced and, for all I know, it is lying in some bushes somewhere after it was thrown from the car. The worst of it, though, is the time it takes to phone up all the card companies, including credit, banking, driver’s licence, etc. It is so time consuming, costly and downright annoying. Personally, I think the law doesn’t really want to do anything about it. Think: it is a “make-work project” for the auto-glass companies and ICBC; it keeps the credit-card company busy printing up new cards and doing the paperwork, and as insurance companies won’t pay for the losses, people still have to go out and buy new cellphones, computers, etc. so it’s all good for the economy.

City staff to the rescue Editor: On Oct. 25, a cold, wet and windy morning, I had the misfortune to lose my wallet. Less than one hour later, my wallet was returned to me by two City of White Rock employees. I am truly grateful to these two gentlemen.

Enforcement iffy at best Editor: Re: Perspective from a visitor, Nov. 1 letters. Thank you to letter-writer Charles Evans, for taking the time – as a visitor – to complain about the speeding along Marine Drive. Maybe powers that be might finally listen to something a visitor says, as opposed to a whiny resident. I, along with many others, have been complaining about this issue for a long time. The speeding continues, and the enforcement is still iffy at best. Part of the problem, as I see it, is that it seems even when there is police presence, the tolerated speed seems to be more than 50 km/h before anything is done. If 50 km/h – which is almost double the posted

Pedestrians need more tools than just audible signals to cross the street safely, writes Suzanne Gerard.

We could use a few extra tweets Editor: Someone at city hall decided a crosswalk that tweets makes an excellent ‘Walk’ signal, but they added a challenge to go with it. See if you can make it across the street before the light changes. If not successful, said tweeting turns into an ambulance siren. Me running is not going to happen. Ten years ago, maybe… I have managed to make it three-quarters of the way – once; usually it’s half way. Today, a driver, wanting to turn, slowly crept up to and over the white line, apparently thinking the turn signal blinking on the car was not sufficient incentive for me to move faster, so an implied threat was called for. We now have a stand-off – me staring down the driver

while aiming for the curb and the driver intent on my progress, inching forward. The prize was in sight. I raised my foot to plant it on the curb but cringed in mid-step when the sound of squealing tires announced the car was fish-tailing through the crosswalk behind me narrowly missing my tail feathers. I’m thinkin’ we could use a few extra tweets. I suppose I could carry a placard reminding drivers that pedestrians have the right of way. Another option – and one I personally favour – is perhaps invest in one of those tire shredders the police throw across the road to stop the bad guys and just drag it behind me while attempting to cross our streets.

Surrey prisoner says he’s ‘anxious to live a better life’ Staff Reporter

driver was actually prohibited from being behind the wheel. The officer ran the Durango’s license plate and found it had been tampered with to change a ‘C’ to an ‘O’, Pike said. After the driver’s arrest, she whispered to the officer that she was being held against her will – a point later proven untrue – and that there was a gun in the vehicle, Pike said. The shotgun and some shells were found in a storage area located over a rear wheel well, and Cook and one other man were arrested, Pike said.

Cook told police the shotgun was his, Pike noted. Gordon took the fact it was not being used for anything nefarious at the time of arrest into account in sentencing. “The gun seemed to be safely out of sight… only brought to police attention not for something you did,” she told Cook. In addition to the further 22 months incarceration, Gordon ordered Cook to submit a DNA sample and prohibited him from owning or possessing any weapons “for the rest of your life.” It is an order he’s been given before, Pike noted in his submissions.

A Surrey man who got clean, finished high school and earned a bachelor’s degree in business management while behind bars will spend another 22 months in jail before he gets the chance to prove to the public that he’s changed for the better. And Jason Vincent Cook knows his odds of continuing on a positive path are better if he serves his time in a provincial facility. Federal prison is where he became addicted to drugs, Cook told Judge Ellen Gordon during his recent sentencing hearing in Surrey Provincial Court. The Nov. 1 hearing followed guilty pleas on charges of possession of a loaded, prohibited fireSAVE arm and possession of a firearm while prohibited.

Snowdon noted her client has struggled with addiction since he was 15 years old – a condition Gordon acknowledged has factored into much of Cook’s criminal history.

Man stabbed over ice cream LOUISE HUTCHINSON An altercation at a South Surrey motel in September that ended with one man stabbed was apparently fueled by a dispute over ice cream. Peace Arch News reported at the time that police attended the 926 160 St. Cedar Lane Motel around 6 p.m. Sept. 19, after a 48-yearold man called to report he had been stabbed by his friend. The pair had known each other for about 40 years and had been living at the hotel when the incident occurred, police said. According to a search warrant filed in Surrey Provincial Court, the altercation began after one man asked another if he could have some ice cream and was told no. A third man, in the living room of the motel unit, told police he heard a bang around 6 p.m., followed by arguing between the two other men, the documents state. When the victim

reported his injuries, he said he was “bleeding heavily,� and when police arrived, they arrested at gunpoint “an overweight male wearing a grey, dirty shirt with black pants,� the search warrant notes. Airlifted to Royal Columbian Hospital from the sports field at Earl Marriott Secondary, the victim later told police his friend had taken the ice cream in question into a bedroom; the victim followed, kicked open the door and an altercation ensued, the documents state. The victim suffered a two-inch deep stab wound to his right shoulder blade. The search warrant was requested in an effort to recover a blackhandled folding knife with a six-inch blade from the scene. Police were also looking for a blue-handled, 28-ounce ‘Eastwing’ hammer. According to an online court database, Darren Grant Duttenhoffer,

50, is facing charges of assault with a weapon and assault causing bodily harm. He is

Seniors’ issues on the table Sarah Massah Black Press

The federal minister of state for seniors will be in White Rock at the end of the month to speak on issues affecting seniors in Canada. Alice Wong – MP for Richmond – will address a six-point action plan on elder abuse, presented to her by Jack Mar, the White Rock chapter chair of the Canadian Association of Retired Persons (CARP), at the Elk’s Hall, 1469 George St., on Nov. 25. The six points – which were also presented to federal minister of justice Rob Nicholson earlier this year – include specialized investigating support for existing criminal offences and increased sentencing for elder abuse, mod-

ment, there is room for much more. “Minister Wong announced tougher laws on people found guilty of elder abuse, but there has been no definitive action on the other points,� Lewis told Peace Arch News. She noted elder abuse is not restricted to physical harm, and that the most common abuse facing seniors today focuses on their wallets. “Financial abuse is huge for seniors. If it happens, what are you going to do and who are you going to tell? It’s difficult, especially when you’re elderly and feeling disempowered,� Lewis said. CARP provides a forum for seniors across the country.

Donation aims to help polio research The Semiahmoo Rotary has donated nearly $3,000 for polio research as part of a world-wide effort to end the disease. The Rotary’s contribution is a collaborated effort with Rotary groups around the world working to raise $200 million US to match $355 million in challenge grants received from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The resulting $555 million will support immunization campaigns in developing countries where polio continues to infect and paralyze children, according to the Rotary website.

ARE YOU NEW IN TOWN

Polio is a viral disease that can affect nerves and can lead to partial or full paralysis. According to the World Health Organization, the disease mainly affects children under the age of five.

In 2011, only four countries (Afghanistan, India, Nigeria and Pakistan) remain polio-endemic. For more information about the Rotary’s work go to www. rotary.org/endpolio - Black Press

New mural makes centre ‘more of a home’ Tracy Holmes

A

Staff Reporter

symbol of transformation has taken over a brick wall at the South Surrey/ White Rock Learning Centre. Featuring the school’s mascot – a raven – seemingly bursting through the wall, the mural is back-dropped by hues of gold and blue highlighting the White Rock pier, and surrounded by words of inspiration: inspire, respect, create, dream, imagine. The mural adds warmth to the warehousestyle facility at 2320 King George Blvd. – but it represents so much more, said principal Jim McConnell. “There’s been thousands and thousands of kids through this school, but there’s no evidence of it,” McConnell said. “In a lot of ways, the learning centre sort of transforms some of these kids’ lives.” In the works for about a year, the mural is the culmination of extensive efforts by students to research, design and create a piece of art that represents their journey through positive transformation and personal growth. Working with artist Jason Craft, the finished product is “even better” than they envisioned, student Hayleigh Rubens-Augustson said. “There’s not this big white wall now. It has some beautiful artwork on it,” said RubensAugustson, who has her eye focused on a career in art. “Everyone is so excited. It just looks really great.” The design process included a mural tour of Vancouver, to collect ideas from how other communities have represented themselves through art. Using Photoshop, students combined photographs and ideas to create a proof of the final product. Craft came in at the design stage to help guide the process, teacher

South Surrey/White Rock Learning Centre student Roget Hall works with artist Jason Craft on the school’s mural on Halloween. Lisa Patrong Patrong said. Rubens-Augustson, who turns 18 this month and expects to graduate this year, said many people wrongly believe that learning centres are “for kids who are going nowhere in life.” “It’s not. There’s so many things you can work for,” she said.

She said Craft offered her the opportunity to help him with another mural, located at a library. Patrong said the project was an effort to engage the whole school, which currently boasts about 180 students – many of whom arrived at the centre after struggling in the ‘regular’ public school system.

A core group of about 40 students took the project to heart, she said. “The whole idea for the mural was to make this more of a home, so they all had a sense of belonging… something they were proud of,” Patrong said. “And you can always make it better, even if you’ve got it.”

Town Center Vision.

Limited commercial investment and tax income based on homeowners, small business and tourism means we must remain prudent and fiscally responsible on how these monies are spent. I intend to continue this fiscal responsibility.

Strengthen the city’s economic base. Minimize taxation. Preserve the currently designated single family areas of the city. Maintain the autonomy of White Rock, but work cooperatively with Surrey and Semiahmoo First Nations on cross-jurisdictional issues.

My platform centers around: Honesty and accountability; Citizen advocacy; Communication and dialogue; Transparency; Environmental advocacy; Infrastructural upgrading; Development and density; Business revitalization, all as they apply to issues of city Governance and the successful application…

If re-elected I will continue to work hard to hold on to the values and lifestyle that makes White Rock our home.

When elected I will utilize 30 years working in the media to better promote White Rock and events we host. I also want employees and elected officials to never lose sight we are civil servants.

I will continue to work hard for our residents, answering their needs and being open minded, listening is the key. Together, we can build a better White Rock for now and future generations.

White Rock has a unique and highly desired quality of life. I want to keep it that way, and make it even better. Thank-you for your consideration. Please call 535-0728 if you have any questions.

White Rock is a family beach town. I want a 20 year plan for Town Centre anchored by a centre for research or innovation. We need wealth creation, jobs and vitality ... attracted to our location.

Terry Allen (SFE)* Occupation: President of CUPE 379 representing support staff for the Burnaby School District Key issues: 1. Securing new capital funding to build schools for students 2. Changing the Community Link funding formula 3. Supporting excellence in public educa-

Candidates for school trustee

Paul Hillsdon Occupation: Student Key issues: 1. School overcrowding and funding 2. Student engagement 3. Teacher autonomy My campaign is about building education for the future. There is a global education reform movement underway that we need to be a part of. We need to shift from an industrial, one-size-fits-all approach to a personalized learning system that meets the unique needs and interests of every student. Doing so is critical for the economic competitiveness and social well-being of our city and nation. I am committed to resolving our funding issues, and being a vocal and collaborative advocate for the next generation of public education.

tion I was first elected to the Surrey Board of Education in 2002. I hope to be re-elected to be able to continue the progress we have made, putting the interests of parents and students ahead of all others. I currently serve as the chair of the school district`s budget committee and as the board representative on the Parks and Recreation Commission. I am active in the sports community, including soccer, baseball and basketball. I have coached girls’ softball for many years.

Black Press asked all trustee candidates in the Surrey School District to provide their names, occupations, top three issues in order of importance and 100 words briefly describing their platforms and plans if elected. Here are their responses:

Ijaz Chatha (SCC)* Occupation: Realtor Key issues: 1.Working with Victoria to secure capital funding for building new schools 2. Better liaison with council so schools are planned in new neighbourhoods 3. Getting Surrey’s fair share of special needs and Community Link funding If re-elected, I will continue challenging the provincial government for sufficient funding to meet the specific and diversified learning needs of students. The school district is in desperate need of more new schools. We need adequate ongoing funding for special needs students and increased Community Link funding. One of my daughters is special needs, giving me a greater understanding of the impact of cutbacks. Also, public consultation should be increased prior to decision making. I have lived in Surrey for 15 years with my wife and four children.

Sukhy Dhillon (SCC) Occupation: School teacher and education consultant Key issues: 1. Real schools – not portables 2. Improved two-way communication between parents and trustees 3. More assertive action to deal with bullying I am a parent of three children, a public school teacher and a parent presenter on issues such as bullying and how to support children’s learning at home. Our children deserve classrooms, not portables. We need clean washrooms and proper gymnasiums. Schools are a community asset; our playgrounds should not be locked up. I will be aggressive in securing capital funding for new schools. Children with special needs deserve equal access to all services. Communication between home and school is my priority.

Malkiat Singh Kang Occupation: Retired school administrator Key issues 1. Increase learning goals 2. Being an advocate for all parents 3. Enriching environment and love for education for all children I am a graduate of University of Calgary, bachelor of education. My past experience includes teaching all grades in the Canadian public school system for over 30 years. Part of my experience includes being a school administrator (principal and vice-principal) for 10 years. Canada has been my home for over 50 years and I have been a Surrey resident for the last 20. I am married with five adult children who are teachers, lawyers, and a doctor. My vision is to use my experience as an educator, father, grandfather and proud resident of Surrey to contribute to our school system.

Moh Chilali (SCC) Occupation: (Not provided) Key issues: 1. Work with community, parents and partners to ensure a long-term viable and sufficient funding for Surrey schools 2. Address the learning and teaching needs of the rich multi-ethnic diversity of Surrey. 3. Initiate a daycare program publicly funded for Surrey parents I have been a Surrey resident for 13 years, a parent of a son and a daughter who graduated from Semihamoo Secondary. I hold an engineering degree in oil economics, a masters of international business, a bachelor of education, a masters of education, and am finishing my doctorate in education. I worked for more than 20 years as an educator in B.C. and overseas. I held also the position of B.C. Ministry of Education Coordinator and organized training for B.C. teachers.

Pam Glass (SFE)* Occupation: Retired school teacher, citizenship judge Key issues: 1. Securing capital funding to build new schools 2. Changing the Community Link funding formula to the benefit of disadvantaged Surrey students 3. Encouraging greater parent involvement in student learning I am proud to have served on the Surrey Board of Education for the past 12 years. As a mother of four and a grandmother of nine, I have always had a passion for education. Being a parent prepared me for being a teacher. That experience and my time serving as an assistant to the premier and Members of Parliament prepared me for local government and the Surrey Board of Education.

Laurie Larsen (SFE)* Occupation: President of CUPE Local 402, representing the City of Surrey workers Key issues: 1. Securing new capital funding to build schools for students 2. Changing the Community Link funding formula 3. Better resources for special education Over the past three years, the current board has been successful in putting the interest of students before any other consideration. Because of this, five members of the current board have decided to form the Surrey First Education electoral organization. We hope to be re-elected this fall so that we can continue to meet the challenges of the largest and fastest growing school district in B.C. I have lived in Surrey since 1957 and graduated at Queen Elizabeth Secondary. I raised four children.

Charlene Dobie (SCC) Occupation: Special education assistant 1. Capital funding/overcrowded schools 2. Communication with all community partners 3. Continued and fair funding for Surrey’s most vulnerable students An SCC team on Surrey Board of Education and council means Surrey will have a voice to lobby Victoria for much-needed capital funding. I will bring that issue to the forefront at every opportunity. I will listen to and work with students, parents, teachers, support staff, administrators and other elected officials. Advisory committees for all partner groups and real question periods at board meetings are just two ways to improve dialogue. Adequate funding for Surrey’s most vulnerable students is crucial to our community. Occupation: School teacher and education consultant Key issues: 1. Real schools – not portables, now not later

Laurence Greeff (SCC) Occupation: Teacher, Langley Secondary School Key issues: 1. $273 million to address school overcrowding and the elimination of 290 portables 2. Chronic under-funding of Surrey schools 3. Addressing the unfair sharing of Community Link funding I currently teach at Langley Secondary School. My daughter graduated from Earl Marriott Secondary School. I grew up in Cape Town, South Africa but am proud to call Surrey my home. I will challenge the privatization of schools and new experimental reforms that are designed to devalue educational services for the children in our schools. I will lobby intensively for $273 million to address overcrowding in Surrey schools. Our schools need to be fully funded to address the needs of our students.

Reni Masi (SFE)* Occupation: Retired Surrey high school principal, MLA Key issues: 1. Securing new capital funding to build schools for students 2. Changing the Community Link funding formula 3. Supporting a new International Baccalaureate program for North Surrey The Surrey School District is the largest and fastest-growing in B.C. Rapid growth brings problems of space and overcrowding. The board has continuously pressured Victoria to meet the capital (building) requirements of the district. My years of teaching and administration have offered me insights into the school system and my involvement in provincial politics has provided an understanding of the provincial perspective. I offer you a lifetime of public service and I’m here to help you and your children.

Continued from page 23 Ram Sidhu (SCC) Occupation: Program manager Key issues: 1. Overcrowding in schools 2. City council and school board need to work together to better plan communities 3. Not enough support staff, librarians and counsellors As a mother of two young children I am concerned about the over-crowding in our schools. As a school trustee candidate I am committed to working with parents, teachers, city council and Victoria to improve our schools, so that our children have the best environment for success. We need to start construction and fix the school crisis now. We need to adequately fund support staff, librarians, and counsellors. Also we will work together with city council to better plan neighbourhoods to prevent further overcrowding.

Ann van Rhyn Occupation: Special education assistant, Surrey Key issues: 1. Increasing graduation rates 2. Expanding opportunities for diversified learning/choice 3. Aligning community services with schools, providing timely assessments B.C’.s education community is talking of technology in schools, increasing online and individualized learning. My goal is to ensure there is a voice for those who would “fall through the cracks” that the new system is indeed personalized and learner centred. I’ll advocate for community school partnerships, and accessible learning centres, to boost student success and graduation rates. I would support teacher innovation, arts and choice programs, as well as school “greening” initiatives. With energy and passion I am committed to being accessible.

Voters will have a second chance to meet and question Surrey school trustee candidates this Wednesday (Nov. 16) at 7 p.m. in the theatre at Clayton Secondary, 7003 188 St. The meeting, sponsored by the Parent Advisory Council of Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary, is only the second all-candidates meeting for trustee hopefuls for District 36 during the current campaign, following a District Parents Advisory Council event on Oct. 26. Linda Stromberg, vice-president of the Lord Tweedsmuir PAC and member of a districtwide ad-hoc committee on overcrowding, said the previous meeting impressed on her the importance of seeing candidates in person rather than judging them simply by campaign literature. “I think people need to make an informed decision when they vote, and an all-candidates meetings gives them an ❝An allopportunity to see how people candidates perform under a bit of pressure; meetings their ability to answer hard gives (voters) questions and their skills when an opportunity it comes to speaking and, even more importantly, listening,” she to see how said. people While the meeting will perform inevitably draw more people under a bit of from the Cloverdale and pressure.❞ Clayton area, it’s open to voters Linda Stromberg from throughout the district, Stromberg said. Overcrowding of schools is an issue that impacts many schools throughout the district, she added, particularly Lord Tweedsmuir and Earl Marriott Secondary, both of which have introduced a two-tier staggered schedule this year to accommodate heavy enrolment. “It’s certainly an important issue for me,” she said. “We’ve been hearing concerns from parents about the impacts the scheduling has had on family life – and it’s also a health and safety issue since there are often lineups for washrooms during breaks, as students are reluctant to visit them during class time.” Voting for trustee candidates will take place Saturday (Nov. 19) as part of the city ballot including both mayoral and councillor candidates.

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 information, visit www.semiahmooarts.com

Beastly fun It’s not Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, but it is the Fraser Valley Gilbert & Sullivan Society’s latest in a well-received line of 26 Christmas pantomimes. FVGSS’s take on Beauty and the

Post-election laughs For those in need of a good laugh on Nov. 19 – after the dry business of casting votes in the

municipal election – Surrey’s Royal Canadian Theatre Company is offering a fundraising evening of comedy with stand-up star Simon King, starting at 8:30 p.m. at Newton Cultural Centre (13530 72 Ave.) Praised by Robin Williams as “truly a gifted comedian,” Surreyraised King (who has had specials on CTV, HBO and the Comedy Network and played many major North American comedy venues) is known for maniacally frenetic performances and sharp, sociallyconscious material drawn from his singular – and hilarious – point of view. Tickets for the 19-and-up mature content show are $15 in advance and $20 at the door, with proceeds to aid the RCTC membership program). For reservations, call 604-594-2700.

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 singer and composer, born in Britain and raised there by his Nigerian parents, 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, which will be released in early 2012. For tickets ($45), call 604507-6355, or visit www. bellperformingartscentre.com

Diane Lines Dynamic pianist and vocalist Diane Lines will headline her new show ‘Jump!’ in concert, Nov. 25 and 26 at Blue Frog Studios and Performance Centre, 1328 Johnston Rd. Lines, who won new fans when she opened for Alfie Zappacosta at Blue Frog in January, has crafted a celebration of swing, jump-blues and boogie woogie that has already wowed reviewers in Las Vegas, and is scheduled for shows in Florida and Europe in the new year. Described as “a uniquely feminine approach to the era of jump blues” Jump! traces how the fusion of swing, blues and boogiewoogie of the 1940s set the stage for the mainstream rock n’ roll of the 1950s, defining popular music for an entire generation. Lines, who was pianist for Michael Buble for two years, has also performed with Dal Richards, Kenny ‘Blues Boss’ Wayne, Gabriel Mark Hasselbach, Jim Byrnes and others.

Dennis Augustynowicz excels on strongman circuit

Playing to his strengths Nick Greenizan

Sports Reporter

alk to Dennis Augustynowicz, and he comes across as polite and softspoken, speaking in calm, measured

tones. But see him in person – as many will do this week at the B.C. Strongman Competition in Abbotsford – and you’re bound to get a markedly different perspective. After all, at 300 pounds with a shaved head and beard, he can certainly look intimidating, and he’s among the province’s strongest men – routinely lifting 300 pound logs, or pulling 70,000-pound semi trucks with a rope. What’s more, he does this kind of thing for fun. Augustynowicz, a 28-year-old contractor and handyman, took up strongman competitions two years ago on the suggestion of co-workers, who had watched for years as he routinely lifted more than the rest of his colleagues, and with seemingly less strain. “When I was a kid, I noticed that I was usually quite a bit stronger than the other kids,” said Augustynowicz, a Mission resident who grew up in South Surrey and still works on the Peninsula. “And I’d seen (strongman competitions) on TV before, but I didn’t think to give it a try until two years ago.” Strongman competitions, run locally by the B.C. Extreme Athletics Association – and of which Augustynowicz is a member – generally consist of a number of feats of strength. Among the event: the 500-pound yoke walk; lifting a 300-pound atlas ball

sports Five-point effort from Tyler Morley highlights .500 weekend

Eagles pot eight against Grizzlies Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Even playing without two key offensive weapons, the Surrey Eagles had no trouble scoring Friday, beating the visiting Victoria Grizzlies 8-5 at South Surrey Arena. The offence dried up the following night, however, as the Birds were only able to muster a single goal in a 4-1 loss to the Cowichan Valley Capitals. Captain Tyler Morley led the charge Friday, registering a season-high five assists for the Eagles, who were playing without forwards Michael Stenerson and Brandon Morley, both of whom were playing for Canada West at the World Junior ‘A’ Hockey Challenge in Langley. There was very little downtime through

the first 40 minutes of Friday’s game, with the teams combining for six goals in each of the first two periods. The score was tied 3-3 after the opening frame – Eagles’ affiliate player Kevan Kilistoff, defenceman Linden Saip and Charles Orzetti scored for the home team – and Surrey tacked on four more in the second from Ben Greiner, Steve Koshey, Brandon Scholten and Saip. Robert Lindores scored the only goal in a much calmer third period. The middle frame also included a barrage of penalties; the teams combined for 30 minutes in minor penalties – including three unsportsmanlike conduct calls – and four 10-minute misconducts, three of which came after the horn to end the period.

In addition to Morley’s five assists and Saip’s two-goal effort, other Eagles to record multiple points on the night were Orzetti, who had one goal and one assist, and Koshey, who had two helpers to go with his second-period goal. Sunday afternoon, the Eagles fell behind 2-1 after 20 minutes to Cowichan, with only Colton Mackie, shorthanded, able to beat Capitals’ goalkeeper Brady Rouleau. Cowichan added one goal in the second, from Jacob Charles, and a power-play marker off the stick of Matt Brown in the third period to ice the game for the visitors. The Eagles are at home twice this week, playing Friday against the Vernon Vipers and Saturday against Alberni Valley.

sports Sean Whyte excels in first season with Alouettes

White Rock kicker up for Canadian Football award Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

Sean Whyte kicker

In his first year as a bona fide Canadian Football League starter, kicker Sean Whyte made the most of his opportunity, and he may soon have some new hardware to prove it. The 26-year-old White Rock-South Surrey Titans and South Surrey Rams alum, who plays for the Montreal Alouettes, was named last week as the

CFL’s Eastern Conference nominee for the Most Outstanding Canadian award. Whyte is in his first year with Montreal, after spending the previous few seasons with his hometown B.C. Lions, where he split time with veteran kicker Paul McCallum, whom the team elected to keep instead of Whyte. Whyte was dealt to Montreal in May for a future first-round draft pick.

The move paid off for the Alouettes, as Whyte finished the regular season hitting 45-of-52 field goal attempts, and was tied for second in the league with 197 points. At one point in the season, he also connected on a club-record 24 straight field goals. Whyte goes up against Western nominee, Edmonton Eskimos running back Jerome Messam, for the top

Morton’s Neuroma is one of many foot conditions the staff and pedorthists at Strides Pedorthics frequently see. Owner and pedorthist, Michael Gorman explains. “Morton’s Neuroma is the most common neuroma in the foot”, says Michael. “ It is characterized by pain in the ball of the foot frequently radiating into the toes, commonly between the 2nd and 3rd toes, or the 3rd and 4th toes. A neuroma is an enlargement or thickening of the nerve that is caused by compression or irritation. This causes the nerve to swell

Canadian award. Like Whyte, Messam is also a former Lion. Meanwhile, Whyte’s former mentor in B.C., McCallum – himself a former Surrey Ram – is nominated for the CFL’s Special Teams Player of the Year award. The 41-year-old McCallum, a Surrey resident, set a CFL record this year, connecting on 29 consecutive field goals.

Questions about Morton's Neuroma and can eventually lead to permanent nerve damage. Symptoms of Morton’s Neuroma are a tingling, a burning or numbness, or a feeling like something is inside the ball of your foot. Most often, a Morton’s Neuroma develops gradually and, at first, can occur occasionally when wearing narrow shoes or during certain activities. Over time, the symptoms can worsen and become more intense as the Neuroma becomes larger. Over time, changes in the nerve can become permanent. The most common cause of Morton’s Neuroma is wearing shoes that have an excessively tapered toe box, or high heeled shoes that overload pressure onto the forefoot. Most at risk are people with bunions, hammer toes, flat feet and flexible feet, as well as women after pregnancy. “People diagnosed with Morton’s Neuroma are typically treated with accommodative footwear to reduce compression and pressure
