Kevin Falcon health minister

Surgeons and anesthetists at Peace Arch Hospital are slamming Health Minister Kevin Falcon’s recent assertion that reduced elective surgeries this summer are a result of staff vacations as “irresponsible and factually untrue.” A letter faxed to Peace Arch News Monday and signed only ‘Members of the Department of Surgery’ and ‘Members of the Department of Anesthe-

Owner reflects on dream home hit (again) by fire Staff Reporter

Richard Dilworth remembers sneaking onto the property to get a closer look at the log cabin-style home he’d spotted on MLS. Situated on the corner of 136 Street and Crescent Road, the three-bedroom was tucked behind majestic cedars, and he instantly fell in love. “I couldn’t wait to go see it,” Dilworth recalled Friday, standing under the blackened cover of the walkway that links what’s left of the house he bought five years ago to

its two-car garage. “I snuck into the yard… and I remember going, what a cool place.” Believing the home was unoccupied, Dilworth quietly explored, calling his partner, Phil Holysh, to share his excitement. He had found their dream home. “I said, ‘You’re not going to believe it. It’s perfect. You’ll love it.’ “Then somebody starts walking down the stairs.” Dilworth, 40, shared the memory Friday, as he surveyed the extensive damage caused

It was fully engulfed when police and fire crews arrived. Dilworth wasn’t home at the time, and neither was the tenant of a suite over the garage.  see page 2

Victim’s son treated for minor injuries

McCron’s son, Connor, was treated for relatively minor injuries, police said, as were the two occupants of the pickup truck. The collision occurred around 3 a.m. Monday morning. It appears alcohol may have been a factor in the crash, according to Surrey RCMP Traffic Services Unit. Witnesses are asked to phone Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.

Dan Ferguson Black Press

A White Rock man has been identified as the victim in a fatal head-on collision between a small sedan and a full-sized pickup truck on Colebrook Road near 153 Street in a rural area of Surrey Monday morning. The sedan driver, Bryan McCron, sustained serious leg and chest injuries before succumbing to his injuries at hospital.

B.C. aims to redefine family child “custody” should be called “guardianship” and “access” should be called “parenting time.” De Jong said the law needs to be modernized to reflect current trends such as frequent divorce, common-law relationships and same-sex marriage. One of the proposed changes would extend property division rules to include people who have lived together for two years in a “marriage-like relationship” or have children together.

Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – The B.C. government is proposing to do away with terms such as “custody” and “access” to reduce the battles over children and property that often accompany marital breakup. Attorney-General Mike De Jong says traditional legal terms that suggest “winners and losers” are not appropriate for family law, and getting rid of them is a key part of the first overhaul of B.C.’s Family Relations Act since it was written in the 1970s. A discussion paper released Monday suggests that

That’s something Phil always said we would do here.” Police and fire officials are investigating the blaze, which is considered suspicious. It was not the first time the home was targeted, Dilworth said, noting police are also investigating an October 2009 fire that was set in the home’s crawlspace.

news Jessie Lee hit by repeat fires, mischief

Schoolyard vandals keep crews busy Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Vandals have targeted Jessie Lee Elementary three times in recent weeks, including taking aim at a mural painted as part of an effort to curb graffiti. Neighbour Lynda Honing said she alerted fire crews to a blaze on the 2064 154 St. school’s playground twice in less than three hours last week – first at 10:30 p.m. July 14 and then again at 12:10 a.m. July 15. Honing didn’t see those responsible, but said she knew something was amiss when she detected an acrid odour in the air. Next, she spotted smoke, then saw a man and a little boy appearing to be stomping something out. Honing learned a fire had been lit along the edge of the bark mulch that surrounds the playground structure. She brought a bucket of water over to help douse the flames. Her fears the fire might re-ignite – or be

relit – were realized just after midnight. “I looked out and I could see flames,” she said. “(Those responsible) had piled up all the bark mulch and used this sweatshirt as a fire starter.” Honing said firefighters who responded to her 911 call said if the fire had gone unchecked, it would have melted the playground, which parents fundraised for. “I was just really mad that somebody would actually do that,” Honing said. “It could’ve been disastrous.” Surrey firefighters also told Honing the incident was one of several mischief-related fires they’ve attended of late. Deputy Chief John Caviglia said that while there hasn’t been a noted increase in such nuisance calls, the incident is a reminder of what a seemingly harmless prank can lead to. “Things are getting dry out there and nuisance fires can lead to tragic consequences,” Caviglia said. “They may be unintended con-

Troy Derrick stands in front of the in-progress mural before vandals struck. sequences… but harm can become of it.” Regarding the school’s new mural, Honing said it fell victim to vandals about two weeks ago. Created through a partnership with South Surrey RCMP, the colourful piece was hoped to quell the incidence of graffiti that had been plaguing a concrete wall on the school’s grounds. It was the second Peninsula site to get such a mural. The bandshell at Semiah-

moo Park was painted in April, and it was hoped the idea would catch on as an artistic solution to “toy tagging” that has been sullying the community. At Jessie Lee, both sides of the wall were covered by a mural in June. The east-facing side – which can’t be seen from the road – was tagged with expletives weeks later. “It was beautiful,” Honing said of the artwork. “These guys just absolutely knocked themselves out.” Honing believes if gates installed around the school property earlier this year were locked overnight, it would make those tempted to cause trouble think twice. “It would certainly deter people from climbing the fence,” she said. “It would protect the school and protect the playground.” The school district does lock grounds when a school is repeatedly targeted, but only for limited periods of time, given the number of schools and cost of staffing.

Some express concern

Free Wi-Fi launches White Rock’s first weekend of free Wi-Fi and Bluetooth at the beach was a success, those behind the network say. “There was about 270 downloads, about 140 rejections and over 3,000 phones detected,” Blue Jamb Media’s Michelle Herlihy said Tuesday, noting statistics do not include downloads to smart phones such as Blackberrys. “We think it’s actually quite successful, considering the fact this is brand new for White Rock.” Tourism White Rock unveiled the pilot project last week. Dubbed BlueZone, it is being hailed as the first tourism-focused effort of its kind in Canada. Not everyone is thrilled with the idea. City administrator Peggy Clark said she has heard from two individuals concerned about the health impacts of adding another frequency to the neighbourhood. Another person who received the download commented the service was great, Clark noted. A group calling itself Citizens for Safe Technology has also raised concerns, with members – including some from South Surrey – saying the signals can lead to a number of health problems. The permission-based network features 14 access points that send video content on local happenings to Bluetooth-enabled cellphones. Each hotspot also has a Wi-Fi function that enables the content to reach those with devices such as iPhones, laptops and other Internet-accessible gear. Friday, the network offered users five videos that cycled out at a rate of one every three hours. That was “dialed down” Saturday to one video available 24/7 within a smaller range to ease the community into the new environment, Herlihy said. The plan is to slowly increase the network’s range and number of videos, she said. – Tracy Holmes

Merchants look for ways to combat after-hours thieves

Elgin Corners businesses tackle crime Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Repeated break-ins at Elgin Corners have merchants at a loss for what more can be done to curb the trend. Since the complex opened at 140 Street and 32 Avenue about three years ago, all but one of the businesses have been targeted by thieves, some more than once. “Everyone has been broken into,” said Arianne Morgan, owner of Warren Fashion Boutique, after her business was hit June 21. “We’re all kind of fed up. We feel like sitting ducks.” Video surveillance shows masked-and-gloved culprits – one male, one female – take the glass out of the store’s front door before making off with about $10,000 worth of clothing. “We watched it all on our camera,” Morgan said. While such security has become the norm for area businesses – along with metal gates, motion-detecting alarms and polycarbonate panels to strengthen glass doors – it has done little to deter thieves. Many merchants also

Year-round learning worth another look


here are 9,500 Surrey students attending school during July and August, during what is traditionally considered summer vacation for those in kindergarten to Grade 12. That means nearly one-sixth of local students are in the classroom for a portion of summer. Some are there by choice, to get a jump on next year’s studies or to bump up borderline grades. Others have been referred by teachers. Regardless of the reasons, a parent or guardian has approved of the schooling outside of the regular September-to-June year. So it seems strange that recent talk of yearround schooling elicited a backlash, after the district floated the idea. Hundreds of responses were received from students, parents and staff, the majority not remotely interested in changing the school calendar. A Facebook group was even set up opposing what was labelled “mandatory summer school” in Surrey. Arguments included decreased family time that summer provides, difficulty finding childcare, hot classrooms and high school students having trouble finding jobs with a condensed vacation. Except for the latter, the reasoning doesn’t make the grade. Surrey’s proposal was to still have all of July and half of August off, exchanging the last two weeks in August for a couple of weeks in October. And there would be two weeks of spring break, just as there was this year. Daycares would adjust to parents’ revised schedules, as would community groups and camp organizers – if they want to stay in business. And would it really be that bad if family time was disbursed throughout the year? The benefits of year-round schooling outweigh the disadvantages. Districts that have switched to a more balanced calendar find students don’t forget as much over the breaks, and teachers needed less time for review at the beginning of the school year. Struggling students and those with special needs fare better, too. There is less vandalism reported and the varied breaks actually provide more opportunity for families to vacation at different times of the year without skipping class. And, as a lot of the kids currently attending local summer classes can attest, school can be fun no matter what month it is. Change isn’t always easy. But sometimes we can learn from it.

gap narrower than the Inside Passage, or anything encountered by tankers that already carry light petroleum products into Kitimat. Once the Gulf of Mexico blowout was the talk of Lotus Land coffee shops, it wasn’t long before Vancouver city council determined that there is in fact oil tanker traffic right into the city. First a refinery is discovered in Burnaby, and then it turns out Kinder Morgan’s pipeline is loading ships, too! Council immediately launched a task force to assess the appalling risks of oil transport that has proceeded safely for decades while council studied things like a dead stump in Stanley Park. It turns out even “tar sands” oil is shipped out of Vancouver. No doubt the city’s latte-sippers would be happier if this unsightly business moved up to Kitimat. Enter Michael Ignatieff, the latest leader of the party that declared Canada a peacekeeping nation. (Again, this assumes history began in the 1960s.) Ignatieff ’s nuanced position on oil exports is that no pipeline should be built to convey Alberta crude to Kitimat. Condensate can continue to go into Kitimat by ship and to Alberta by rail, where it is used to dilute heavy oil. The resulting crude can go by pipeline to Vancouver, where tankers weave through the island-dotted arteries of B.C.’s urban heart. Call it the “screw Kitimat” policy. Or just plain screwy.

Explanation disparaging Editor: Re: Staff vacations delay surgeries: Falcon, July 14. Health Minister Kevin Falcon’s remarks regarding Fraser Health operating-room closures as a function of vacation planning among facilities in the region is misleading at best. Is he really suggesting physicians and nurses across the region all spontaneously and simultaneously decided to have longer than usual vacations this particular year? If you speak to any hospital administrator, surgeon or OR nurse, they will tell you the cuts were imposed by Fraser Health due to

from the province. inadequate funding from the provincial government. If the government is truly short on finances, why does Falcon was correct in saying, “We can’t force a new $500-million BC Place people to work.” What stadium roof hold priority he did not say is people over people’s health?

Vacations must be managed

as saying “every facility gets to make their decision on how they manage their vacation time.” This is fine in principle, but I wonder who makes the decisions in this very necessary public facility that result in no operating rooms being open in August. Do the staff decide? Or does management decide that everyone can go on holiday in August? We had the same problem when we ran our business. Summer holidays were always difficult to fit everybody in the way they wanted. Regardless, we insisted on our employees staggering their holidays so that our customers’ needs were looked after. It seems to me the management team of Peace Arch or any other hospital in the region has this responsibility as well. J. Oliver, White Rock

quote of note


We hope the education that needs to be done happens before dogs and owners lose everything we have gained.a Sandy VanDeKinder

A matter of respect Editor: Re: First Nation cultural event marred by dog owners, July 14. It is extremely unfortunate to hear about the experiences the participants of the Salish Sea Journey had with certain dog owners during the closing of Semiahmoo Park July 7-9. I am a dog owner who lives across the street from the park, and we use it a minimum of twice a day. There is a group of about 10 of us who gather there with our dogs on a regular basis. We are responsible owners who always clean up after our pooches, and encourage others to do the same when we catch them trying to pretend they don’t see their dog relieving itself. I, too, have been verbally abused by owners who think the park is their dog’s backyard. It is troubling to read we might lose the use of this great area because of irresponsible dog owners. We are appreciative of the courtesy extended to us by the Semiahmoo band in letting us use this area as a gathering place. I can guarantee that we have every respect for that privilege, even if others do not. It is just as offending to the regulars who enjoy the park to watch people passing through on their way to the beach, letting their dogs defecate without picking up after them. During the first day of the event, one of our group did help with the cleanup of dog feces. She has also offered our services for future events that might be held on the park. I invite Semiahmoo First Nation councillor Joanne Charles to contact me directly, and I will supply her with a list of those of us who would be happy to help with cleanups when necessary. We all live in the area, enjoy the park with our dogs, and attend events held there. We would hate to lose our privileges because of the negligence of some knuckleheaded dog owners. The speculation that they don’t know it is not public land is neither here nor there. These people don’t clean up after their dogs regardless of where they take them, because, the fact is, they don’t want to clean their own yards of dog piles. Sharon Hollas, White Rock

History lesson I don’t have a dog, but I see lots of people who use the park and some do pick up after their pets. There are also bags tied to corner of bushes for those who don’t bring one. As for the couple with potty mouths, you folks have to realize this park is not public. You should apologize for your ignorant comment. Semiahmoo First Nation allows us to use it and

Even when the thenMunicipality of Surrey had it as a park, it was and still is owned by First Nations. So to you, sir, this is not a public park but a Semiahmoo Nation park – only they allow us to use their beautiful land by the sea for all to enjoy. I have been here since 1942. My childhood friends and I enjoyed many years of good times in this park, as many others still do. If Semiahmoo First Nation decides to fence it off, then your days and ours of enjoying this green space will be over. Since I am Metis, I should probably be helping put up the fence. Regards to the Semiahmoo First Nation and all the volunteers for all their hard work and a job well done. Jaqueline (McLeod) Hoflin, Surrey

Pet project After reading the front page of the July 14 Peace Arch News, my heart sank. I felt very sad the First Nations event was treated so disrespectfully and they were left with an unnecessary cleanup. For many years, my husband and I have taught dog obedience for South Surrey parks and recreation. We were disheartened to hear dogs, yet again, are seen in such a negative way. There are many people working hard to improve dog/human relations and improve the quality of life for pets in general. Much of this comes down to education, and there is a wide range of areas being addressed. Education about banning breed-specific dogs, pet store animals, backyard breeders, puppy mills and rescue organizations are just a few issues that need attention. Students come to our obedience classes for a variety of reasons, but two seem to be predominant: the dog does not come when

called, and on-leash walks are stressful and unpleasant because the dog is dragging the owner behind. Both problems demonstrate a lack of control and leadership with the dog. We have seen dramatic transformations after enrolling a dog in obedience training. This not only puts you in the leadership role, but also greatly improves relationships with your dogs Once control is established, walking the dog on-leash is a much more pleasant experience. If exercising the dog or a round of ball throwing were required, an off-leash park would be appropriate. Socializing should be done long before a dog is introduced to any public park. So until obedience classes can be undertaken, please stay focused on your dog – and clean up when enjoying our beautiful area. We hope the education that needs to be done happens before dogs and owners lose everything we have gained. Sandy VanDeKinder, Surrey

Responsible behaviour Our neighbour regularly let his, thankfully, now-deceased Alsatian use our yard as a toilet, refusing to clean it up, ever. Simultaneously, he has done everything in his power to ‘punish’ me personally for every bird turd that lands on his property, due to my friendly relationship with a pair of crows. Considering how hard it is to quell the seething anger I feel – he actually told me he has more rights than me since he owns and I only rent – I can imagine how the natives must feel when faced with similar disrespect. People over five years old who still think they deserve all the freedom with none of the responsibility need rehabilitation. R. Bikadoroff, White Rock

news Handful of Peninsula residents report similar calls in 2010

Senior warns others of ‘relative’ phone scam He then told Conroy how he was stuck in jail after getting into a car accident following a wedding in Montreal, and that he couldn’t get out until he’d paid the tab for damages to the rental car he’d been driving. Fortunately, Conroy paid attention to the feeling of uneasiness she got during the conversation. “It was a long story he told me and I still wasn’t sure,” she said. “He told me he needed help, needed money.

Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A savvy South Surrey senior is warning others to be wary of ‘relatives’ calling to ask for financial help, after she was targeted by a man pretending to be her grandson. Beverly Conroy was playing cards with friends when the call came in around 1 p.m. July 14. The young man on the other end of the line was friendly, telling Conroy, “It’s your favourite grandson,” she said.

“‘You’re the only one that can help me,’ he said.” Conroy’s suspicions were confirmed when she decided to ask her ‘grandson’ his wife’s name. He gave one, she told him he was wrong and he hung up. Now, she wants to make sure others don’t fall for the scam. “I just thought maybe there should be a warning,” she said. “Make sure you know who it is.” Police have offered similar advice in recent months, as Conroy’s

experience is not the first time such a scam has reared its head on the Semiahmoo Peninsula. In March, an 82-year-old White Rock grandmother was duped out of $1,900 by a man who identified himself as her grandson and convinced her to wire money to him in London, England. At least four similar reports were fielded by South Surrey officers in the first few weeks of the new year. All of those targets were also senior women.

Tips police offer for those unsure a caller is who they claim include: make the caller identify themselves by name; and, if still uncertain, ask questions only they and a few others would know the answer to. As well, never give out personal information, including banking details, over the phone, and confirm any contact number provided for the caller through a phone book or operator. For more information, contact Phonebusters at 1-888-495-8501.

A report of five men beating on one brought police and paramedics to a commercial parking lot in the 1900block of 152 Street early Sunday. Police attended the scene around 1:30 a.m., to find one man with minor injuries to his face. The victim, a 22-yearold Surrey resident, did not want to pursue charges, would not provide a statement and indicated he was OK and “just wanted to go home,” police say. The person who reported the assault was unable to identify those responsible. Anyone with information may contact police at 604599-0502. – Tracy Holmes

Trial set A South Surrey man is to be tried on charges including aggravated assault in connection with a violent domestic incident earlier this year. According to documents filed in Surrey Provincial Court, police were dispatched to Peace Arch Hospital Feb. 19, after a woman went to hospital with bruising and cuts to her neck, face and leg. The woman told police she was assaulted at a home in the 2600block of 152 Street, when she attempted to return two sweaters and a toy duck to the residence, which she had moved out of in May 2009. She said she was injured when a man grabbed her hair and smashed her head into a car, the documents state. Bruce Saul is facing charges, including aggravated assault, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, uttering threats and breach of undertaking in connection with the incident.

Teen killed for slashing tires: RCMP Aliu had come to Canada from Albania about four years ago to live with an uncle in Surrey. He attended Surrey’s Guildford Learning Centre. On Friday, two memorials had been set up at the scene of the shooting near a First Nations housing complex at 141 Street and 103 Avenue, a small cross on one side of the street, and a collection of messages and pictures taped to a tree on the other side. “The community has to say enough is enough,” Malo told reporters. “Enough is enough of the people who are involved in the gang lifestyle. Enough is enough of people who take it upon themselves to carry firearms… to be bullies.” The investigation continues. Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the IHIT TIP Line at 1-877-551-IHIT or if you wish to remain anonymous call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222TIPS.

Dan Ferguson Black Press

Police believe 17-yearold Adem Aliu was shot and killed because he and some friends were vandalizing vehicles last Wednesday night in North Surrey. Supt. Dan Malo, Officer in Charge of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT), made the statement during a Friday news conference to announce the arrest of 20-year-old Steven Brandon MulliganBrum, who has been charged with seconddegree murder in the Aliu slaying. Malo said Aliu and some friends were slashing tires and kicking cars early in the morning when they incurred the wrath of a man who confronted the youths with a gun. “They were acting like stupid children,” Malo said of the teenagers. “It’s an absolute, awful tragedy.” Mulligan-Brum, a Surrey resident, was arrested 15 hours after the fatal shooting. He made a brief court appearance in Surrey

Life coach writing book on raising children in joint-custody arrangements

Positive parenting after divorce Hannah Sutherland


Staff Reporter

hile Karen Kristjanson was raising her children in a joint-custody arrangement with her ex-husband, she didn’t know of anyone else doing the same. “That was a pretty rare thing to do,” she said. “Especially at that time, the norm was the (mother) would be the sole caregiver.” But Kristjanson took the road less travelled after divorcing 18 years ago and splitting the care of her sons – then five and eight years old – equally with their father. She said the choice, as noted in research, can have positive impacts on a child, in terms of self ❝The thing I confidence, education and maintaining found so far is good relationships with both parents. “Fathers and mothers bring different you have to be things to parenting – it’s very hard for one prepared to be a person to do both those things,” she said. big person ...❞ Wanting to help others who are practising or considering shared parenting, Kristjanson – who became a certified life and leadership coach two years ago – is researching for a book she plans to write on the topic. The South Surrey resident aims to interview at least 60 parents whose children spend equal time between two households, drawing on themes and anecdotes from their experiences. She would also like to speak to youth 15 and older who have lived in shared parenting situations, to learn about their thoughts and feelings on the arrangement. Kristjanson, who has already completed a handful of interviews, said she anticipates gaining various viewpoints on what makes shared parenting work and what some of the difficulties are. “The thing I found so far is you have to be prepared to be a big person – put aside some of your own feelings and quarrels.” The book won’t be a how-to on shared parenting so much as a resource that explains how it feels for those going through it, Kristjanson said. She hopes it offers parents a support she didn’t have nearly 20 years ago. “When I was doing this, I didn’t know anyone else doing shared parenting. There still aren’t that many people doing this.” Aside from her book, Kristjanson said she has also developed a half-day workshop to help people understand shared parenting. While it hasn’t been finalized, she hopes to have it running in the fall. Despite some of the apparent benefits of shared parenting, Kristjanson is quick to note that it’s not for everyone, especially in cases that involve abuse, addictions or other threats to safety. “Parenting is a very personal thing,” she said. “It’s so individual.” Parents interested in being interviewed for Kristjanson’s book can contact her at The interviews tend to be one to two hours, and held at a location convenient for the participants, who will remain anonymous in the publication.

Keeping the offending materials away from a nosy mother, a pompous bank manager, an officious police inspector and a fussy bank examiner seems bad enough – and then some ‘good time’ girls arrive on the doorstep.

Dean Paul Gibson One of Earl Marriott Secondary theatre program’s most successful alumni, Jessie 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 1-877-739-0559.

Lance Ryan The term “shop early for Christmas” definitely applies for tickets to this year’s Christmas with Lance Ryan, which are on sale now, even though the concert is scheduled for Dec. 15 (7:30 p.m.) at First United Church. 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.

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.

Clockwise, from top: riders in the men’s road race grit their teeth on a hill climb; Joelle Numainville narrowly outsprints Leah Kirchmann for the women’s title; riders compete in Saturday’s criterium; and Tour de White Rock volunteer Donna Tarver chases after a rider on Magdalen Avenue.


Peace Arch News Wednesday, July 21, 2010


Numainville wins in sprint race was a much slower race until the final quarter-mile down Marine Drive. No riders broke away from the pack, instead electing to ride in a lead group of 25-plus until the final lap, at which pointed 23-yearold Joelle Numainville, a noted sprinter who also won the women’s criterium Saturday, turned on the jets to edge Winnipeg’s Leah Kirchmann by less than a bike-length at the finish line. Alberta’s Heather Kay was third. The race was so close, the top 15 riders were all clocked at the same time – two hours, 35 minutes and 7.3 seconds. As the reigning Canadian road race champion – and criterium winner from the previous day – Numainville said she felt like she was racing Sunday with a bull’s-eye on her back. “It was hard, today everybody was racing against me, and I could tell. I was attacking, trying to get away and it just never worked out,” said the Montreal native. “Whether it was with the sprint at the end, or if it was a breakaway, whatevever... I’m happy.” Saturday’s criterium was much like the road race – or the results were, anyway. Like Sunday, Numainville won in a sprint to the finish line, edging Saskatoon’s Andrea Bunnin, who finished second in the 30-lap race, while Tuft overpowered the field, and crossed the finish line alone. He was 22 seconds faster than second-place Jamie Sparling, of the Okanagan-based Total Restoration Cycling team. Friday night’s hill climb was won by Routley, who edged Andrew Pinfold for the title. The top woman

was Jessica Hannah, who rides for Total Restoration. After the race, she summed up the torturous race – in which riders burn their legs powering up hilly Buena Vista Avenue – in one word: “Evil.” Pinfold, meanwhile, said Sunday he was “the victim of his own cooking” and skipped the criterium because he was suffering from food poisoning. He attempted to make a go of it for Sunday’s road race, but pulled out midway through it.

 from page 23 “On that last (big) lap, Svein came up and then it was just a totally different ball game. You’ve got two teammates, two Pro Tour riders, against you, and that makes things more difficult,” Routley said. “They didn’t waste any time. As soon as he got there, boom, they started going back and forth. Svein attacked, then Christian attacked, then Svein attacked again.” Tuft said he was lucky to have Meier there to help fend off Routley, who covered every charge the GarminTransitions duo made. “We hit him with probably 20 different attacks and he covered every single one,” said Tuft, who added that Routley, a 27-year-old Whister native, was good enough to race on the Pro Tour in Europe. “He was just so strong. I was worried… I hope the best for him and I’ll do whatever I can to (help him) down that path. He needs to go (to Europe) and give it a go, because he’s definitely that calibre of a rider.” In wearing his F-Cancer jersey, Meier paid tribute to his younger brother, Michael, who died of brain cancer last September. After Saturday’s criterium and awards presentations, the 23-year-old New Brunswick native – who moved to Langley five years ago – took to the mic and spoke to the crowd about his brother, and his fight to promote cancer awareness through his blunt F-Cancer movement.

Svensson wins Jr. Worlds Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

After a decade playing the Callaway Junior World Championships, South Surrey golfer Adam Svensson can finally call himself a world champion. And all it took was a birdie on the 18th hole of San Diego’s Torrey Pines South Course to make it happen. Svensson, a 16-yearold Earl Marriott Secondary student, shot an even-par 72 in the final round Friday, finishing the four-round event at sixunder – one shot better than Argentina’s Jorge Fernandez Valdes, who led Svensson by three strokes heading into the final round. “It was pretty shocking (to win it),” Svensson said from Castlegar Monday, where he was preparing for his first B.C. Amateur Championship, which began the next day. “I was just like, ‘Wow.’ I couldn’t believe it.” The South Surrey native, who just last week won a B.C. Junior championship in Courtenay, narrowed the gap between him and Valdes, and even briefly took the lead, on the front nine with two birdies and one eagle, but trailed Valdes by two heading to the final hole. “I was leading through 10, but then I sort of fell apart there for a bit. I went for some pins that I shouldn’t have gone for,” Svensson said. Trailing by two shots and heading to the 525yard, par-5 18th, the South Surrey teen said he had no expectations to win it, but wanted to make it close. “I just thought I’d try and get on (the green) in two and then see what happens,” he said. What happened was, on his second shot from the fairway, Svensson hit was he called “the best threewood of my life” to put his ball within 15 feet of the pin. Valdes replied by going for the green himself, but put his ball in the water hazard just in front of the green. His next shot sailed over the green, which left the door open for Svensson to sink his winning birdie putt. The Argentinian eventually finished with a double-bogey. “I guess my shot really put the pressure

42 BJORGE Bradley Kenneth May 1, 1956 ~ July 15, 2010

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Brad on July 15, 2010. Our hearts are broken. Surrounded by family, Brad fought a courageous but short battle with cancer. Kind, loving, thoughtful and selfless, Brad was deeply loved by family and friends. He was extremely important to so many people, always understanding and supportive. The most important thing in life to Brad was family. He will always be remembered as one who gave generously from the heart, never wanting in return. The world has lost a gentle soul filled with love and joy. We know he is once again surrounded by love and is waiting for us all with his dearest Mom. We love you forever Brad. In loving memory of Brad, a memorial service to be held Saturday, July 24, 2010 at 2:00 pm at Valley View Funeral Home 14660 72 Ave., Surrey, B.C. Flowers gratefully declined, in lieu donations to the Alzheimer’s Society or Cancer Society would be greatly appreciated.
