Health minister predicts record number of procedures by year end
Staff vacations delay surgeries: Falcon Surrey and White Rock Chamber of Commerce meeting at Hazelmere Golf Course in which he upheld B.C.’s progress in increasing efficiency and maintaining the position of having the shortest wait times for surgery in Canada. Responding to questions about Fraser Health region closing more operating rooms than usual to elective and scheduled surgeries as a cost-cutting measure this summer, Falcon he said he believes it is a function of vacation planning among facilities in the region.

❝We can’t force people to work.❞ Kevin Falcon
B.C. Health Minister Kevin Falcon said he believes that Fraser Health – along with other health authorities – will better its surgery record in spite of closures of operating rooms this summer. “I predict they will either do the same number of surgical procedures this year or even more,” he said. The Surrey-Cloverdale Liberal MLA made the comments to the Peace Arch News Friday, after a speech at a South
“These decisions are made as a result of the surgeons and the anesthetists sitting down with their staff and saying, ‘OK, who’s going on vacation this time of year?’ Falcon said. “What I hold the Fraser Health Authority – and every health authority – accountable for is making sure we remain Number 1 in terms of the number of elective surgical procedures we do.” Falcon said he recognizes there are concerns among residents about Peace
Arch Hospital, which has one operating room open in July and will have none in August. “I understand that,” he said. “We can’t force people to work, right? They take vacations and every facility gets to make their decision on how they manage their vacation time. So if the majority of people are going to be taking time… from mid-July to August off, then it’s the right thing to do for them, for that facility. see page 2

Future of Semiahmoo Park mulled after land ‘disrespected’ during otherwise successful celebration
First Nation cultural event marred by dog owners Alex Browne & Tracy Holmes Staff Reporters
The Salish Sea Journey canoe event hosted by the Semiahmoo First Nation last week was a great success in every regard but one, organizers say. Despite fencing and signage erected indicating the Semiahmoo Park’s closure for three days to
accommodate and celebrate journey participants, they were still dogged by pet owners determined to make sure their canines had continued access to the grounds. And that may just mean the beginning of the end to public access to the park. Fencing the park to prevent public access is among options being
weighed as a means of addressing the problem, SFN councillor Joanne Charles said Monday. It’s a step the band has thought about before, but never gave serious consideration to until now. “After the weekend and after confronting some of these people, as much as it was not seriously considered before, the option is being

weighed now,” Charles said. “If it gets to the point where the disrespect from the land is such that we feel we have to fence it off, we will.” The canoe journey, part of the annual Pulling Together event, brought a flotilla of 18 First Nations canoes from Crescent Beach to White Rock, and then to SFN land.
Charles’ team, in their Spirit of the Sea canoe, has participated for the past eight years; this was the band’s first time hosting participants. Charles described the journey – including the appearance of whales in the bay as the canoes rounded the point towards White Rock – as “awesome” and “surreal.” see page 4

Falcon defends HST Lean $ as positive for B.C. Ground Beef Free Run Boneless Chicken $ 99 Rib Eye Thighs Steaks Alex Browne Staff Reporter
Provincial Minister of Health and Surrey-Cloverdale Liberal MLA Kevin Falcon hewed to a familiar line in discussing his government’s unpopular introduction of the harmonized sales tax at a South Surrey and White Rock Chamber of Commerce meeting Friday at Hazelmere Golf Course. “We could not have done a worse job in rolling it and explaining it,” he said. But he reiterated he believes introduction of the tax was “absolutely the right thing to do,” given the economic realities that face B.C. Falcon said the federal offer of $1 billion in transitional funding as an enticement to introduce the HST, plus greater flexibility in applying it, was hard to turn down at a time when the government was trying desperately to minimize a recession-related deficit last year. “We had $2 billion in revenues evaporate in 90 days from May to July,” he said. He acknowledged, however, that he understood the public belief that the government must have discussed introduction of the
HST prior to last year’s provincial election, but insisted that no such discussion had taken place. “I think the very fact that we did such a poor job explaining it indicates that we hadn’t discussed it,” he noted. Falcon told chamber members – and guests, who included fellow B.C. Liberal SurreyPanorama MLA Stephanie Cadieux – that a return to the PST would be a costly business that would involve turning back administration to businesses and hiring more staff with taxpayers’ money. Further, he argued, the PST was an “inefficient tax,”’ using the example of a bottle of wine that would be taxed separately on the bottle, the cork, the label and the final product. At the same time, he said, the HST was “tough politics” to sell to the electorate. “Sometimes in public life, you have to do the right thing, even when it’s tough,” he said. “We will be judged on it, and I’m willing to be judged on it. But we can go to British Columbians and say we did the right thing, not just for our generation, but the next generation.”
‘We’ll always have wait lists’ from page 1 “So every facility will be different depending on what the employees agree to.” What is important to him, Falcon said, is total numbers over time. Falcon said he expects the fall to bring a “drastic upswing in the number of surgeries,” but he hesitated to say this would mean surgeries will catch up to existing waiting lists. “There will always be waiting lists in the Canadian system,” he said. “The issue is how long do people wait?” Falcon referred to Canadian Institute of Health Information figures – previously cited in his speech – which he said show that B.C. has “the lowest wait times in Canada.”

“We want to maintain that position,” Falcon said. In his address to the chamber, Falcon said his government has increased health spending “90 per cent” since coming to power. However, he added, “what is coming at us like a freight train is exploding health costs.” Falcon said it is important to ensure sustainability in health care through innovation, primary care reform – which is aimed at giving family doctors more ability to deal with communities’ immediate health care needs – and health promotion through such things as weight loss, exercise and an improved diet.

news Chantrell Creek students pitch in to help friend
Classmates hold ‘fire sale’ to help Katrina Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter
Katrina Barberie captured the hearts of her Chantrell Creek Elementary classmates at an early age. It didn’t matter that she was confined to a wheelchair, that she couldn’t play catch at recess or that she couldn’t tell them what she was thinking. Katrina, now 12, was one of them – quick to laugh, always smiling and always included. So when the students learned Friday that their friend’s house was damaged by fire, they didn’t hesitate to act. “My kids were the first to say, ‘What can we do to help?’” said Janet Lowe, whose son Nicholas has attended school with Katrina since kindergarten. They came up with a plan to hold a garage sale this Saturday and donate the proceeds to Katrina’s family. The girl, her mom Nancy and grandparents Jean and Ken Murphy, were alerted
by neighbours to a fire at their 13502 14A Ave. home around 8:30 a.m. July 7. All four emerged unscathed, but the house suffered significant damage. Nancy Barberie said she was told the fire was the result of the spontaneous combustion in transplant pots in a greenhouse adjacent to the house. The blaze jumped to the roof and spread through the attic. Katrina’s room – along with much of the electronic medical equipment she relies on – suffered extensive water damage. She is staying at Canuck Place in Vancouver until the family firms up rental accommodation, which they expect to do this week. And while the family has insurance, Barberie said there are things Katrina needs – renovations to accommodate her recent growth spurt – it won’t cover, as the changes were not part of the home’s original structure. Funds raised Saturday will help with those renovations, Barberie said. Barberie, who is a single parent, said she
Nancy and Katrina Barberie have support. has been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support since the fire. “All we can say is we’re just so incredibly
grateful,” she said. “You just go, wow – people, truly at heart, are amazing.” Saturday’s garage sale started out as something the Grade 7 families would do, but quickly grew, Lowe said. “It has just absolutely spread like wildfire through the school, and everybody has jumped in wanting to help.” Lowe described Katrina as “full of smiles, full of laughter and full of life.” She may not be able to communicate verbally – as a result of a rare, degenerative brain disease, leukodystrophy – but “there’s a bright, sunny little girl in there,” she said. “The kids really embrace that. Every one of the Grade 7 kids just has a very special place in their heart for Katrina. They all look out for her.” The garage sale is set for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot at Chantrell Creek Elementary, 2575 137 St. The hope is to raise at least $1,000 for Katrina’s family. Cash donations to the cause will also be accepted at the sale.
Crosses to bear markings The City of White Rock’s 2010 construction program has rolled into action. The package includes eight enhanced crosswalks, with paving stones replacing painted lines and a rigid surface where the sidewalk meets the crosswalk, to allow visually impaired people the ability to feel where the crosswalk begins. There are five enhanced crosswalks being installed on Marine Drive from Martin Street to the “hump” plus one on Elm Street and two at the intersection of Johnston Road and Pacific Avenue at Five Corners, according to acting director of engineering and municipal operations Rob Thompson. The package also includes an emergency entrance road at Hospital Street and paving at Marien Lane and Victoria Lane. Construction of the work, awarded to low-bidder Imperial Paving for $212,763, is scheduled for completion by the end of July. – Alex Browne

Feasibility study not supported as staff directed to outline cost, timeline of study
City debates extending promenade on its own Melissa Smalley Staff Reporter
The City of White Rock is exploring the idea of extending the waterfront promenade, despite opposition from some councillors who say an upgrade is unnecessary. A recommendation was brought forward from a June 1 infrastructure and transportation committee meeting for council to direct staff to do a feasibility study on extending the promenade from the boat launch west about a kilometre to Coldicutt Park. However at council’s meeting Monday evening, the recommendation raised a number of questions about the cost, timeframe and practicality of such a study as well as the condition of the existing promenade.
“I think it’s a great idea as far as doing a feasibility study on the existing promenade,” Mayor Catherine Ferguson said. “What I’m concerned about is if we go ahead and we add on additional length. However, we have things that we’re not keeping properly now that are in need of upgrade. I think it’s important that that’s part of the study as well… We also need council to be aware of these really high-priority issues along the waterfront that also need attention so that council can make a strategic decision as to what’s going to be a priority.” Coun. Lynne Sinclair said she was concerned with the fact that extending the promenade is already included in Metro Vancouver’s yet-to-be adopted Regional
Growth Strategy. “I don’t understand why we are taking up this issue when we already have it in Metro’s regional growth strategy, which will be adopted, I’m sure,” Sinclair said, “We have that partnership and that potential for funding and sponsorship. I don’t want us to absorb costs that, ultimately, are going to be borne by Metro Vancouver.” Ferguson noted Metro Vancouver’s Regional Growth Strategy has not been adopted yet, and that there are many aspects of the project to be studied in order for council to make an informed decision. “I don’t see the harm in finding out more information,” Ferguson said. “We’re not committing to the project, we’re just educat-
ing ourselves before making a decision one way or another.” Council defeated the motion to have staff conduct the study, instead passing a new motion for staff to return to council with a report outlining the cost and timeframe of the study as well as identifying potential partners for the project. However, the decision to have staff look into the study’s cost was not unanimous – Couns. Mary-Wade Anderson and Alan Campbell were both opposed. “I don’t think we should be doing this using staff. I think staff are up to here right now,” Anderson said. “I can’t see any good reason for this recommendation to even have feet. It’s too much work.”

RCMP target longboarders longboard riders have here. Pape is a veteran of the sport, and has been documenting longboarders on film for a decade. He moved to the Peninsula a year ago, and was surprised to see so many young boarders not wearing helmets. As a result, he’s recently launched The Colabo School of Riding, a program which he hopes will help educate young longboarders about traffic safety and safe-riding techniques. “There’s a perception out there that we’re outlaws who don’t care about traffic and just bomb down the middle of the street, ignoring stop signs and whatever else,” said Pape, who was friends with Evans. “We really need to get the message out there... you need to wear the proper (safety) equipment, and you need to stick to side streets, and places where it’s safe.” Pape rides his longboard to his job at the Washington Avenue Grill, and says he’s never had any issues, with safety or with anyone in the community. “I stick to low traffic areas, and I don’t fly through stop signs,” he said. “We need to gain the respect of the community… we’re not out to cause trouble.” - with files from Nick Greenizan

Won’t you be my neighbour? hen was the last time you borrowed a cup of sugar from your neighbour? Or poked your head over the fence to say hello or offer a friendly wave? Do you even know their names? If you’re a little more neighbourly than some, or have found yourself living in the same quiet neighbourhood for many years, the answer should be easy. However, for many of us in today’s world – chock full of high-density development, secondary suites and rental houses with a revolving cast of tenants – the answer will test the limits of our memory. It’s the world we live in now, but it was not always thus on the Semiahmoo Peninsula. It wasn’t too long ago – a decade or two or three, maybe – where it seemed everyone knew everyone, and a friendly face was just one door away, should you need anything from a kitchen condiment to a borrowed tool to a last-minute babysitter for your kids. And remember Block Watch and Block Parents? These neighbour-helping-neighbour movements that were popular in the ‘70s and ‘80s are still active now, but there seems to be fewer telltale signs posted in windows. And while such developments might be perceived as signs of the times moreso than any conscious effort to ignore those around us, it is something of a shame, considering how beneficial such neighbourly relationships can be. At the very least, it helps to know neighbours’ names, and maybe have their phone numbers scribbled somewhere. Take for example, two incidents on the Peninsula last week. In one, a family escaped from its burning house after on-the-ball neighbours alerted them to the blaze. In the other, neighbours administered resuscitation attempts to a two-year-old who had fallen into a residential pool. Thankfully, the toddler – found face down – is expected to make a full recovery, but if not for that fast-acting neighbour? Who knows. Of course, not all neighbourly benefits are of the life-and-death variety. It might simply be nice to see a familiar face when you’re out washing the car, or know that if you go away for a week, there’s someone to water your plants and pick up your mail. Some say progress has made our world a lot smaller. Perhaps it’s time to revive that smallworld feel.

65 responding said Maureen Bader of the Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation. “We know the convention centre, the Canada Line and the Sea-to-Sky highway upgrade together cost almost $4 billion – it’s time the government admitted these were Olympic costs and give taxpayers a full account of the Games.” Finance Minister Colin Hansen insisted last week that the highway and convention centre were committed to before Vancouver was awarded the Games. As usual, he sidestepped the extra cost of accelerating these projects, which in the case of the convention centre ended up doubling the bill to almost $900 million. Hansen makes a point that is often overlooked, in provincial budgets as well as the Olympic project. There’s a difference between money spent on a shiny new transit line that fills with passengers each morning and money spent on a VIP reception. Most of the Olympic cost went to build tangible things, including a waterfront athlete’s village that will eventually pay off handsomely for the Vancouver taxpayers who bailed it out. The crucial measure can’t be made yet, but there are hints. Not long after Beijing handed the torch off to Vancouver, Canada finally got approved travel destination status with China. And soon after that, Air Canada and Air China began adding flights between the countries. This is just the beginning.

No room for tree cutting
Must be fiscal responsibility
Editor: Re: Growing concern in White Rock, July 2 letters. The letters to the editor by B. Belec and Phil Le Good are excellent and should open council’s eyes. White Rock is a very special city – unique. Why? Because it has the charm and flavour of a small town. It is magnificently positioned with the ocean on one hand and covered with tall luscious trees on the other. In summer especially, when the temperatures rise, it is still cool and comfortable. Why would you destroy something so beautiful and perfect? Preservation of “all trees” is the key. For those folks who do not agree I have the perfect solution… Move to the hot, dry desert! I. Thielemann, Langley
Editor: Re: Liberals take MP to task over seniors, July 9. The federal Liberal party is holding a town hall meeting to look at seniors’ health issues, suggesting MP Russ Hiebert has not spent much time on this issue. Hiebert responds, citing a meeting he hosted in September 2007. 2007! I am sure these meetings are expensive to hold, and I am again sure Hiebert was only trying to be fiscally responsible in not holding these meeting more frequently. Bill Stockdale, White Rock
Self-initiated patrol a danger Editor: I was travelling south along Johnston Road when a woman, obviously coming from her yoga session, stepped out and stopped in the middle of the road motioning for her companion to follow. I was dismayed – since crosswalks are plentiful along this street. She proceeded slowly and suggested to me that I was speeding. I know the route and the speed. She was reckless in her behaviour and I think she must have an issue with traffic in the area. Madam, I do know the limit is 30 km/h and I also know that crossing when safe is recommended to all. Please, do not assume the role of radar cop on Johnston Road; it is precarious enough with drivers backing out without looking and jaywalkers like yourself. T. Davison, White Rock
Perspectives on Kim Jong-il Editor: Re: Korean War not all that’s forgotten, June 30 BC Views column. Tom Fletcher’s column reminds us peace may yet emerge in that part of the world. But his analysis falls short. Seemingly contradictory, the majority of South Koreans do not perceive North Korean leader Kim Jong-il as an “erratic, nuclear-armed madman.” Instead, Kim is admired as a strong person who stands up for his country.
No small measure of that attitude can be traced back to the 1905 Russo-Japanese War, where U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt pressured the combatants to sign a deal that gave Korea to Japan and solidified American control of the Philippines. This sacrifice of Korean freedom – later punctuated by the failure of the 1919 Versailles conference to extend independence to all nations – is a point well-learnt by the Korean people: it is dangerous to allow others to decide your fate. This is not to say the contributions made by the UN during the Korean War and the later massive infusions of U.S. economic aid to South Korea are disavowed. Koreans, then as now, appreciated the help. The present generation of South Koreans are more likely to emphasize blood ties and culture rather than ideologically-driven armed retaliation whenever faced with North Korean provocation. Of course, after 65 years the notion that the North and South retain the same society is fanciful. More sobering, sudden reunification could cost Seoul up to $3.5 trillion, which is enough to convince most southerners that gradual and functional co-operation is the most prudent strategy. Still, Koreans strive to be onceagain a proud, unified country informed by peace and prosperity, yet cautiously aware of the super powers that surround it, namely China, Russia, and Japan.
Communism or capitalism does not change that geopolitical fact. Bob Burgel, Surrey
No one has clean hands Editor: The horror and feeling of powerlessness I’ve felt while watching the Gulf of Mexico oil spill disaster is something I’m sure many others share. But none of our hands are clean, since we all rely so heavily on petroleum products like gasoline. One answer suggested by many is to turn to electric cars in urban areas. This could possibly work well in B.C. where more than 90 per cent of our electricity is produced from clean hydroelectric sources. However, until the U.S. can find an alternative to burning coal to produce its electricity, any move to electric cars in that country will just be replacing one fossil fuel with another, because half of the electricity in the U.S. is produced from burning coal. A solution must nevertheless be found, and if that means places where clean electricity can be produced easily – such as B.C. – are to supply places that cannot, then this must surely be preferable to the nightmare that has unfolded in the Gulf of Mexico.

Not worth hiding faith Editor: Re: Nine interior fixes to sell a home fast, July 9. Your article in the Home Showcase section has some very worthwhile suggestions on selling one’s home. Having successfully bought and sold several homes in this area over the last 20 years or so, I feel qualified to provide comment on one aspect of the article I disagree with: the suggestion “to store religious items as well” in order to avoid provocation. We never have done this and would not expect others to do so. Canadians are God-fearing people, rather than atheists. Our national anthem incorporates God into our lives for good reason. Why should “experts” advise us to hide our primary beliefs for the sake of a fast sale? Lawrence G. Fagan, White Rock

Tragic outcome a matter of time Editor: Re: Driver leaves senior ‘fighting for her life,’ July 9. It was with great sadness that I read about the 77-year-old woman who was tragically run over on Marine Drive and Lee Street last week. I can’t say that I am surprised, however, as it was just a matter of time that something like this happened. Really, I am surprised it doesn’t happen more often, with the amount of speeding that goes on daily along Marine Drive, especially in East Beach.
Without a constant police presence ticketing speeders, it seems 99 per cent of the drivers along Marine Drive have no regard whatsoever for the posted legal speed limit of 30 km/h. Something has to be done – sooner rather than later. We should all keep calling and emailing the RCMP, the City of White Rock, the mayor of White Rock, as well as letters to the editor.

Shots fired at border crossing Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter
Shots rang out at the Peace Arch border Friday, after a southbound motorist sped through the port, driving over several barrier barrels and narrowly missing another vehicle and a border guard. “One officer fired… at the vehicle due to the imminent danger to the general public and himself,” Chief Tom Schreiber, of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said Monday. “No one was injured, and the individual was apprehended a short time after.” According to documents filed in the U.S. District Court in Seattle, the incident occurred at 11:50 a.m., when a man in a B.C.plated, blue Plymouth minivan pulled up to a primary inspection booth.
When asked to produce identification, the driver responded that he did not have a licence. When told to turn off the van’s engine, he sped into the U.S., the documents state. After hitting the barrels and just missing a southbound van, the Plymouth headed toward a CBP officer. As the officer fell backwards, two gun shots were heard and the minivan fled towards Blaine, the documents state. A ground and air manhunt found the minivan abandoned on a Blaine street. A man found hiding in bushes nearby was arrested in connection with the incident. The minivan was later determined stolen. According to the court documents, the accused told officers he understood why
the CBP officer fired his gun, and said he would have done the same thing if he was in the officer’s shoes. “(The accused) said that he and the CBP officer were now ‘even’ because, ‘he could have killed me, and I could have killed him,’” the documents state. He also told officers he didn’t turn off the vehicle because of problems with the ignition, and that he just got out of jail two weeks prior for a stolen-vehicle offence. Washington State Patrol and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement are investigating. Trevor Doyle, a 21-year-old New Westminster resident, appeared in court Monday afternoon in connection with the incident. He is charged with impeding and interfering with a federal officer.
Surrey input wanted for plane noise Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts will be requesting that the Vancouver Airport Authority (YVR) include a Surrey citizen representative on its noise management committee. Council approved the recommendation during its Monday meeting, authorizing the mayor to forward a letter of request to the committee, which discusses, analyzes and provides advice on noise management issues and already has citizen representation from Vancouver, Richmond and Delta. According to a recent report, city staff recently requested
that YVR extend membership to a Surrey citizen, considering residents – particularly those in the more northerly and southerly areas of the city – have been “adversely impacted” by aircraft noise due to changes to Lower Mainland flight paths since May 2007. “The response from the chair of the committee was noncommittal,” city solicitor Craig MacFarlane says in his report. Council also approved recommendations that staff engage with federal authorities having jurisdiction over flight paths in regards to amending
legislation and implementing Surrey’s Flight Path Resolution, which was adopted by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities at its 2010 conference. The resolution determines that the FCM should call upon the federal government to revisit the legislative framework of federal navigation agency NavCanada, to ensure proper consultation with affected communities and residents – as well as environmental impact studies – take place prior to airspace changes. - Hannah Sutherland

UBC eyes dental school Low-income residents of Surrey and surrounding communities now have to go to Vancouver to save money on dental care by having student dentists do the work. The UBC School of Dentistry wants to change that by setting up a satellite school in South Surrey. The proposed clinic would operate in a multitenant building planned for the south side of 24 Avenue immediately east of Highway 99. Like the UBC clinic, the Surrey site would offer a range of dental procedures carried out by students and supervised by instructors – from fixing cavities to making dentures and installing braces. Patients would have to pass a screening process before they are accepted. They would be charged a fraction of the going rate – or nothing at all – depending on the procedure. On Monday, Surrey council unanimously endorsed the proposed UBC School of Dentistry satellite dental clinic, which is expected to help a planned fundraising drive for the estimated $5-$7 million UBC will need to equip the 13,000-sq.-ft. facility. – Dan Ferguson
Pass on track A $2-million contract has been awarded for construction of a pedestrian and cycling bridge over Highway 99. The overpass will link the King George Boulevard corridor with West Rosemary Heights, where it will land in a .62-acre site at 34 Avenue and 148 Street, which the city plans to turn into a park. The bridge will also link the Pioneer Greenway off-street bicycle network, which connects with the U.S. at the Peace Arch. The contract – including construction of the 73-metre bridge and pathway work – was awarded Monday to Graham Infrastructure in the amount of $2,158,334. including HST.

Pastor reflects on ‘wonderful journey’ Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter
hile Rev. James Fagan has dedicated most of his life to Catholicism, there was a fouryear period between attending Catholic school and working towards becoming a pastor that he did something much different. In 1936, a 17-year-old Fagan dropped out of his Vancouver high school to work in the mine his father managed in Shoal Bay, up the B.C. coast. “I was the oldest of 12 and I thought maybe I should put my shoulder to the wheel and help,” he said last week, reflecting back more than 70 years. At the mine, Fagan met a Victoria missionary who would visit the site. “I indicated I was interested in priesthood,” he said. “The upshot of the conversation was I went back to school for one year. Nine years later, I was ordained.” Fagan said the people he looked up to had an influence in the decision. “As a Catholic, I knew all the priests and I admired them.” After serving as pastor at a number of churches around the province, Fagan was

the goings-on there, helping with funerals and visiting parish members in the hospital. “I always looked up to Father Fagan for his enthusiasm,” Galvon said. “The steadiness of 60 years (of ordination), that’s a wonderful statement of saying his prayers and doing the Lord’s work.” At age 91, Fagan now lives in a South Surrey seniors home, where he is learning to play piano. “Whenever you get old, you’re supposed to have a project, you know,” Fagan said, adding he has wanted to play for a long time, and finally started after moving to his current location two years ago. “I’m just a complete amateur, of course.” Practising piano and getting back on the golf course will be Fagan’s focus after a July 18 mass celebrating the 60th anniversary of his ordination. The public is invited to attend the mass at 11 a.m. at Good Shepherd Church, followed by a noon reception at Star of the Sea School, 15024 24 Ave. Looking back on the last six decades – which have included more than 1,000 weddings and even more funerals – Fagan said “it’s been a joy.” “It’s been a wonderful journey.”

lifestyles Power of prayer Unity of White Rock is putting a call out to all faiths to join forces and pray for a solution to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Rev. Julie Montague said in a release that the church is requesting people of all religions to pray together each day at noon for three minutes, “in whatever way is comfortable, until the oil leak is stopped and clean-up is accomplished.” “It’s a simple idea, but a powerful one,” Montague said. “Scientists have shown when a mass number of people are all focused on the same thing, the earth’s energy field changes measurably. If we pray at the same time with a feeling of love, we can help our beautiful planet heal. “In our community, we believe in the power of prayer and we know most faith-based spiritual communities do, too.” Those willing to join can contact Unity of White Rock at 604-5389519 or firstname.lastname@example.org

New name, same vision Envision Credit Union Charitable Foundation – which provides funding to community groups in the Fraser Valley, among other regions – is changing its name to First West Foundation. The change comes as a result of Envision’s merger with Valley First Credit Union last January, which formed First West Credit Union, the foundation’s parent organization. Despite a new name and website, the foundation’s core mission remains the same, according to the executive director. “We were originally established by Envision Financial to provide our local communities with a sustainable source of funding, and that’s what we’re going to continue doing with the support of First West,” Seline Kutan said in a release.

B.C.’s Olympic tab hits $925 million Tom Fletcher Black Press
VICTORIA – The B.C. government spent $160 million to “leverage” the 2010 Olympic Games, from pavilions in Beijing and Torino to community torch celebrations, bringing the total cost to provincial taxpayers to $925 million. Finance Minister Colin Hansen released the province’s final report on Olympic costs Friday, including the $765 million cost to the province for sports venues, marketing and security. The additional $160 million for hosting visitors and running international ads has never been counted as a direct Olympic cost. “The $765 million, we’ve always been very clear, was the cost of staging the games and living up to our obligations to the (International Olympic Committee),” Hansen said. “The cost of leveraging the games was over and above that.” The province’s only cost overrun directly related to the games was after Ottawa’s security budget ballooned to $1 billion, Hansen said. The province increased its share of the security bill by $165 million in a complex deal that allowed the B.C.
Robson Square was a hub of activity during the 2010 Olympic Games. government to avoid adding to its already rising operating deficit for last year. The report also details contributions by Crown corporations. The Insurance Corp. of B.C. gave $10.1 million to the Vancouver Olympic corporation from its sales of commemorative licence plates, provided $6.2 million worth of insurance for the vehicle fleet, and paid out $2.8 million in claims for Olympic-related incidents. BC Hydro lent technical equipment and
staff to the Olympics, and also spent $1.8 million on a “customer appreciation program” that included Olympic tickets for business customers and B.C. residents who took part in its power conservation campaign. Hansen rejected suggestions that the B.C. government had long promised the provincial share would not exceed $600 million. He admitted that “we did go over” with security costs, but the government never intended to tack on its marketing and promotion costs to the games. The argument over the total costs has raged in the legislature for years. Critics have listed the $600 million upgrade to the Sea-to-Sky Highway and the Vancouver convention centre expansion, which doubled to more than $800 million when its completion was accelerated so it could be used as the Olympic broadcast centre. The report lists no cost for 250 provincial employees who were assigned to Olympic duty, or the additional 400 who took vacation to volunteer. Hansen said ministries were told they would have to contribute staff within their existing budgets.

Thy Will Be Done? A Will is a document that sets out a person’s wishes regarding the distribution of his or her estate after death. One should, therefore, be free to inherit or disinherit anyone one chooses, right? Not exactly... In B.C. we have legislation called the Wills Variation Act (WVA) that requires everyone to make adequate provision in their Will for their spouse and children. After your death, your Will can be challenged by your spouse (including your common law spouse) and children if they believe they have not been treated fairly under your Will. The WVA gives the court the power to vary the Will and to re-distribute your assets in the way that the court thinks fair. In other Provinces, this type of legislation is called “dependents relief" legislation because family members who were Ànancially dependent on the deceased person are those entitled to bring claims. In B.C., however, Ànancially independent adult children, even if they are self-supporting and have not had contact with the deceased for many years, may successfully bring a claim. WVA issues arise in many circumstances, including when a person wishes to: make limited provision for their spouse or child in their Will, treat their children unequally, or make substantial gifts to charities or persons not in their immediate family. “Blended family” scenarios involving individuals in a second or third marriage and/or with children from previous marriages, are also fraught with the risk of potential WVA litigation. As the Ànancial and emotional cost of subjecting your estate to a WVA action can be substantial, many people wish to take steps to ensure that their Wills are not contested. If you wish to disinherit or partially disinherit a spouse or child, there are a number of things you can do to minimize the chances of a lawsuit down the road. An experienced estate lawyer can help you structure your affairs so as to best ensure that your wishes are effectively carried out.

news Crude exports tripled in four years, may double again
Metro to probe oil-spill threat, other cargo Jeff Nagel Black Press
Metro Vancouver will examine the growth in oil tanker traffic through Burrard Inlet and fears the increased shipments heighten the risk of a catastrophic oil spill fouling local waters. The issue will be brought before Metro’s port cities committee in the weeks ahead. Politicians there will examine not just oil but also other hazardous cargo shipped through local terminals. “We think this is a bit broader issue than just oil tankers,” said Gaetan Royer, city manager of Port Moody, who spoke on behalf of the committee. “There’s sulphur, acetylene and volatile compounds that may present health risks to humans.” Royer said the committee would seek information on volumes and types of hazardous cargo, risk assessments and levels of emergency preparedness from various
Metro Vancouver will examine growth in traffic from oil tankers, like this one in Burnaby, to decrease risk. responsible agencies. The port cities committee, comprised of representatives from area municipalities with port infra-
structure, is slated to meet July 16 and 28, although it’s not yet determined when the oil risk issue will be brought forward.
Royer said it appears the actual risk of an oil spill here hasn’t changed, only the perception of that risk because of media coverage
of the BP oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. “People are very, very concerned about these issues and rightfully so,” said Metro Vancouver board chair and Delta Mayor Lois Jackson. She said the committee has a certain amount of lobbying influence, but whether it wields any real power on the issue is debatable. Jackson also noted commodities including oil and gas are needed to sustain the region’s population. Vancouver city councillors grilled Port Metro Vancouver officials about the potential risks July 5 before asking the Metro committee to take up the issue. Port Metro Vancouver terminals last year handled 8.3 million tonnes of petroleum products. Close to half of that consisted of crude oil being exported, while most of the rest were imports of gasoline, diesel or aviation fuel. Crude oil exports through the see page 26

Plan to loosen tanker restrictions a concern for activists from page 25 port have tripled since 2006, with 70 tankers a year now loading crude here, most of it bound for California. Oil for export is carried to the Westridge Terminal in Burnaby from Alberta via Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline. Kinder Morgan wants to expand the pipeline’s capacity from 300,000 barrels to 700,000 barrels of oil per day. Port Metro Vancouver chief operating officer Chris Badger said such an expansion might require expanded terminal berths, tank farms and possibly dredging to ease ships passage. The Kinder Morgan proposal

The assurances were cold comfort to Christianne Wilhelmson, executive director of the Georgia Strait Alliance. “You have to be ready for the worst,” she said. “We saw BP was not ready for the worst. Is that good enough for us? I would say no.” More than 60 species that live in Georgia Strait are endangered or at risk, she said, and a spill could devastate ecotourism ventures and many other businesses and First Nations reliant on the coastline. Each tanker must have local
firm Burrard Clean on standby to mop up any spill of up to 10,000 tonnes. But Wilhelmson notes that’s only a small fraction of what each tanker carries. She said the recent increases in oil exports and the plans to more than double them again are being done without any community consultations. “When you increase the amount of crude oil going out, you increase the number of tankers, you increase their load, you increase risk,” Wilhelmson said. “I think if there’s going to be an increase in risk that the community will pay for in the end, when something goes wrong, we should be part of the conversation.”

Local election reforms move ahead Tom Fletcher Black Press
Tom Fletcher photo
Union of B.C. Municipalities president Harry Nyce.
VICTORIA â€“ The B.C. Liberal cabinet has approved an overhaul of local election laws that will see terms of office extended to four years and new spending limits imposed on candidates in time for civic elections in 2011. Community and Rural Development Minister Ben Stewart said last week he expects new legislation to be drafted in time for debate in the spring 2011 session of the legislature. The spending limits are to be worked out after discussions at the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention, which is scheduled for this fall.
The biggest difficulty is setting spending limits that work for big communities, where developers and municipal unions finance campaigns, and small towns where there are few donations and sometimes few candidates for local councils and school boards. UBCM president Harry Nyce said there will be a special policy session at the municipal convention in Whistler at the end of September to work out spending limits. Municipal leaders and B.C. Liberal MLAs sat on a task force that made the recommendations. They rejected the suggestion of extending the vote to local businesses, and also
the call for limits to be placed on the amount of contributions. NDP critic Scott Fraser, a former mayor of Tofino, said the task force heard calls for a cap on contributions from the public as, academics, the Canadian Union of Public Employees and the B.C. Teachersâ€™ Federation. The NDP has been calling on the B.C. Liberals for years to ban union and corporate donations to provincial parties, but the governing party is in no hurry to end a system where corporate money puts them millions ahead of the NDP each year. The B.C. Liberals wonâ€™t impose limits on municipalities that they are unwilling to face themselves, Fraser said.

The concert, a benefit for the Peninsula Arts Foundation, is a rare opportunity to see the internationally acclaimed White Rock-raised opera star in his hometown – otherwise fans of the tenor would have to travel to Europe where his management have him booked in back to back productions for such prestigious venues as the Bayreuth Festival, where he will headline both Wagner’s Siegfried and Gotterdammerung in July and August (other dates this year include performances in Russia and Shanghai, China). The local concert will present Ryan and his wife, Italian soprana Viviana Passalacqua, with accompanist David Boothroyd, the Semiahmoo Strings youth orchestra and pianist Kay Hung. Leila Getz, founder and director of the Vancouver Recital Society, will be master of ceremonies for the concert. Tickets ($25) are available at Tapestry Music, Five Corners Bistro, or through Gloria Clinker, 604-531-6013.

Part Two, Summer, features new work from Jordison’s palette in a series based on plein air sessions with her long-time friend, equally well-known artist Dan Gray, at scenic spots of Vancouver Island. Also a noted muralist, Jordison delights in painting from nature and live models. A local leader in painting, Jordison helped set up the Larger Than Life Drawing Group in 1979, and her work, celebrating the colour and abundance of nature, shows influences of Bonnard, Van Gogh, Emily Carr and Georgia O’Keefe.

No Sex, Please... Summer theatre, English style, will come to Coast Capital Playhouse in July with the opening of the saucy farce No Sex, Please, We’re British, presented by The Royal Canadian Theatre Company. The show will run July 13 to Aug. 1 at the theatre, 1532 Johnston Rd. Written by A. Marriott and A. Foot, and directed by RCTC founder Ellie King, the play is a hilarious roller coaster ride following the increasingly desperate efforts of a young married couple and their nerdy bank clerk friend to dispose of an unwanted shipment of Scandinavian pornography. Keeping the offending materials away from a nosy mother, a pompous bank manager and a visiting police inspector are bad enough – and then some ‘good time’ girls arrive on the doorstep. For tickets call 604-501-5566 or visit www. arts.surrey.ca or www.rctheatreco.com.
Mojo CD release Tickets are available now for the release party for the eagerly awaited new album, Doin’ It, by local favourites Mojo Zydeco, July 17, 8 p.m. at the Royal Canadian Legion, Crescent Branch 240, 2643 128 St. The Peninsula-based band (featuring Randy Schultz on guitar and vocals and Jane Schultz – now recovering from cancer treatments – on rub-board) has long dedicated itself to the explosive zydeco music of rural Louisiana, receiving accolades from originators and legendary practitioners of the music in the New Orleans area. Two of these, dynamic vocalist, accordionist and harmonica player Bruce ‘Sunpie’ Barnes and accordionist Morris Ledet, founder of the touring band Rosie Ledet and the Zydeco Playboys, will honour the band by appearing as special guests at the CD launch party. The band will also be joined by two musicians who appear on the album: Vancouver session player Tom Gould on tenor and baritone sax, and popular local singer Heidi McCurdy. Tickets ($15) can be purchased directly from the Legion (604-535-1043) or for more information, call Randy Schultz at 604-721-0872.
Coffee House returns The Crescent Moon Coffee House, is back at its home at Kwomais Point Park (formerly Camp Kwomais) at 1367 128 St.
Jarrod Terrell and Becky Hachey star in the English-style farce No Sex, Please, We’re British, playing at Coast Capital Playhouse until Aug. 1.
every Thursday at 8 p.m. The coffee house, a Peninsula tradition dating back to 1979, began as a music therapy program, evolved into a community meeting place for musicians and music lovers, and has been the debut venue for many well-known local performers. All are welcome and admission is $5. The sounds of swinging Dixieland – courtesy of Rice Honeywell’s Red Beans and Rice Jazz Band – continue through the spring and summer every Sunday (3-6 p.m.) up to Aug. 22, barring statutory holidays, at the Royal Canadian Legion Crescent Branch 240, 2643 128 St. Admission with White Rock Traditional Jazz Society membership is $8, without membership, $10. The society’s regular schedule of Sunday sessions, rotating Red Beans and Rice with other Lower Mainland traditional jazz groups, resumes in September (for details, visit www.whiterocktradjazz.com).
award-winner Dean Paul Gibson, returns to Vancouver’s Bard on the Beach festival this year in a dual role – director of the main stage production of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, which runs to Sept. 25, and as the title character in Falstaff (running until Sept. 22). The gorgeously-costumed Much Ado About Nothing has been set by Gibson in an appropriate period, the Edwardian era just before the Great War. In contrast, Falstaff, directed by Glynis Leyshon, is set in late medieval period. An adaptation of sections of Henry IV parts one and two, it traces the story of young prince Hal (later Henry V) and his misspent youth under the influence of outrageous drunk and brawler Sir John Falstaff. One of theatre’s most beloved characters, Falstaff was certainly a favourite of Queen Elizabeth I, who commissioned The Merry Wives of Windsor specifically because she wanted to see “Sir John in love.” For tickets, call 604-739-0559 or 1-877739-0559.

Renegades ’94 claim Showcase title Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter
Hawaii Lokahi may have been the most boisterous team in the Canadian Open Fastpitch International Championship’s Showcase Division, but it was the White Rock Renegades ’94 who made the most noise in the finals Sunday at Softball City, edging their Hawaiian opponents, 4-3. Behind the pitching of 15-year-old Jocelyn Cater – who earlier in the week was playing with Canada’s women’s team – White Rock led 3-2 after six innings, until the spirited Hawaiians knotted the game at 3-3 in the top of the seventh frame.
In the bottom half of the seventh, Renegades’ Jessica Hume led off the inning with a double, and Maryse Garcia and Rachel Proctor each followed with walks to load the bases. With the bases loaded and none out, Cater then stepped to the plate and worked a full count before lining a hit into left field, scoring the winning run. “It was a great hit, and a really good tournament for us,” said Renegades ’94 coach Mark Palmer. The title game was the third meeting of the week between the two clubs. The Renegades beat Hawaii 6-5 – in extra innings – in the final game of the round robin portion of the
tournament, and Hawaii got the best of White Rock Saturday afternoon, beating them 8-3. The loss sent the ‘Gades to the loser’s bracket of the double-knockout tourney, and they were forced to beat the Fraser Valley Fusion Saturday night to earn a trip to the championship game. The win over Fraser Valley was White Rock’s third game of the day, making Sunday’s resilient win all the more impressive. “It was tough for the girls, especially because on Saturday we didn’t get off the field until 11 o’clock at night,” Palmer said. The Hawaiian squad, the lone American see page 32

Border battle ends in draw Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter
The marquee attraction of the Canadian Open Fastpitch International Championship – a four-game series between Canada and the U.S. – ended in a draw Sunday evening, after the States edged the Canadian women’s squad, 3-1. The U.S. opened the scoring in the bottom of the first inning, as Brittany Lastrapes reached first on a dropped third strike, advanced to second on a groundout and then scored on a double by American teammate Kaitlin Cochran. Cochran scored when the next batter, Megan Lagenfield, doubled. The U.S. added its third run in the fourth inning, when third baseman Molly Johnson scored after a series of singles. Canada’s lone run didn’t come until the sixth, when Kaleigh Rafter doubled home Jennifer Salling, who had reached base with a single. Jenna Caira pitched four innings for Canada, striking out three while allowing just six

hits and one earned-run, before giving way to reliever Ashley Lanz, who pitched the final two frames. The two national sides traded victories over the four-day exhibition series, which began Thursday night at Softball City. Canada opened with a 4-3 victory, and took a 2-0 series lead Friday with a 5-0 shutout. On Saturday, the U.S. squad – which featured just five players
off its world championshipwinning team – rebounded with a decisive 12-5 win, before tying the series Sunday. Saturday’s game was a far more lopsided affair than Sunday’s matchup, with the States scoring six runs on seven hits in the first inning, before tacking on four more in the fourth and two in the fifth. Canada kept pace in the early going, scoring four runs of their own in the first inning and one in the second, but couldn’t muster any more runs the rest of the way off American pitcher Angela Tincher, who came into the game in the second inning, in relief of Jordan Taylor. Lanz started the game for Canada, but lasted less than an inning before being relieved by Tina Andreana, who lasted two innings. Marina Demore and Shanna Wilson also saw time in the pitcher’s circle Saturday. On Monday, both teams flew to Whitehorse, home of the 2012 World Championships, for two more head-to-head exhibition tilts.

They were playing with heavy hearts, however; their performance was dedicated to a coach who died unexpectedly just two weeks prior to the tournament. “I mentioned that during my closing speech at the (awards) ceremony, and the whole team just started bawling. It was very emotional,” said tournament chairman Greg Timm. “They were a great group of girls, and a great team. They were really a
pleasure to have here.” The Hawaiian team’s only complaint – made in jest – was that the weather was too hot, Timm laughed. For the Renegades ’94, the Showcase title will go a long way to propelling them to success at provincials, the head coach added. The 16-team provincial tournament is slated for July 16-18 at Cloverdale Athletic Park “This was a good (boost) for them, and I know the kids are really excited, and ready for it,” Palmer said. In the Futures (U19) division, the California Worth Firecrackers defeated the California Corona Angels 6-1 in Sunday’s title tilt.

A recent cbc report pointed out that: “Canadians looking to wrap up new home purchases might ﬁnd that life insurance is a more ﬂexible and less pricey alternative to mortgage insurance obtained through a bank. While most agree it makes sense to cover large debts with insurance, some argue when it comes to
mortgages, most consumers treat it as an afterthought and don't realize that buying through a bank can be a costly mistake. With mortgage insurance obtained from a bank, coverage decreases with every mortgage payment but the premiums show no corresponding decline. That means the costs [per $1,000 of coverage] actually goes up as they bring down their mortgage debt. Personal life insurance coverage remains ﬁxed throughout the term. While mortgage insurance pays off the loan's outstanding balance, only the bank gets paid. In contrast, life insurance will relieve that debt, while often leaving
something over for loved ones. Life insurance is also "portable," you don't need to requalify for coverage during the term if you buy a new home and switch mortgage providers. By contrast, those who purchase mortgage insurance through a bank would likely need to requalify with the new ﬁnancial institution. Going apples for apples, life insurance owned personally is less expensive, and has more ﬂexibility for the consumer. That's why people really need to go to a professional to see how the insurance ﬁts into their overall plan.”
