School fence impales boy’s arm
A most puzzling concept Tracy Holmes
orrayne Norris always wanted to be a mother. As a child, she dreamed of the day, of how she would do nice things with her children. She never imagined she wouldn’t be able to get pregnant. Her own mother had no trouble conceiving, and all four of her siblings are parents. “I was always going to be a mother,” Norris said. Now 38 and into her sixth year of trying to do just that, the South Surrey woman describes her unexplained infertility as one of the most infuriating diagnoses ever. “It means… they don’t understand why you’re not getting pregnant.” ACCORDING to online statistics, infertility affects about one in six North American couples. Causes can range from irregular ovulation and endomytriosis to low sperm count or clogged fallopian tubes. Regardless what is behind the see page 2

A 10-year-old boy was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries Saturday after he impaled his arm on a chainlink fence at H.T. Thrift Elementary. Surrey firefighters were called to the 1739 148 St. school at 12:15 p.m. June 5. The boy, a Grade 4 student at the school, was injured as he went to retrieve a ball from a fenced-off garden area on the grounds. He had reportedly been playing with a friend, bouncing a ball against an exterior wall of the school, when the ball went astray. “From what I understand, the ball went over the fence, he climbed over the fence to get it and then on the way back... he slipped and the bar that was at the top of the gate impaled from his elbow into his arm about three or four inches,” Battalion Chief Gerry Wilson said Monday. The boy was dangling by his arm from the fence. A man who was in the area and saw what happened held the injured student up until fire crews arrived and cut him down, Wilson said. see page 4
Defence counsel questions Delta officer who arrested Berner
‘No reasonable suspicion’ for breathalyzer Dan Ferguson Black Press
Carol Berner driver
On June 19, 2008, one month after the crash that killed four-year-old Alexa Middelaer, senior Delta Police Department officers met with Const. Sarah Swallow to discuss her actions the day of the crash. Swallow had been a police officer for nine months at the time she was called to the scene of the May 17, 2008 crash in South Delta, Surrey Provincial Court
Judge Peder Gulbranson heard Monday, during testimony at the trial of the woman who was driving the car that struck and killed Alexa. The impact also seriously injured the tot’s aunt, Daphne Johanson. The pair had been feeding a horse at the side of the road when they were hit. Swallow was the first officer on the scene, the one who arrested and charged Carol Berner. The notes from the June 19 meet-

ing show it was called to “discuss in detail concerns with Const. Swallow,” according to David Tarnow, the lawyer defending Berner on multiple charges of impaired driving and dangerous driving. Tarnow wants the judge to exclude evidence from the officer, arguing Swallow did not have “reasonable suspicion” to carry out a blood-alcohol breath test on his client and Berner should not have been detained in the back of Swal-
low’s police cruiser. Last week, as Alexa’s parents, Michael and Laurel – who is a Southridge School principal – listened, the court heard Berner failed when she blew into a hand-held unit at the scene. The roadside screening device is designed to fail anyone who blows above 100 milligrams of alcohol in 100 milliliters of blood. The legal limit is 80. She passed two more tests at DPD see page 4

news Volunteer committee to use research from abandoned ‘Island of White Rock’ project
Branding of White Rock back on table Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter
The City of White Rock is still in search of its identity, and has decided to take a grassroots approach in finding it. Council approved a recommendation at its Monday meeting to invite interested individuals to apply to be a member of a steering committee, which would make recommendations to council on developing an image for the city. City manager Peggy Clark said the committee, comprising approximately six members, would review
background work done in 2007 by a consultant hired by the city to help define what makes White Rock unique. The city used a $70,000 Union of BC Municipalities grant to hire California-based firm Whisper, which presented a report in July 2008 that proposed the waterfront be marketed as “Silver Beach.” Other suggestions – such as calling the city “the Island of White Rock” – proved unpopular with many, and council decided not to accept the recommendations. “However, the consultant did a
lot of background work prior to coming up with the logo, and that work may be of value in terms of starting this process again,” Clark said, noting the city has been looking at branding since 2004. “The steering committee would review this background research and come forward to council with a recommendation on how to proceed, if that’s what they felt was necessary, or if they felt more research should be done, or how the process should unfold from there.” Clark said a request will be made for individuals from various back-

Members of the Surrey RCMP Emergency Response Team are called to Cloverdale Monday.
Standoff in Cloverdale Jennifer Lang Black Press
A six-hour-long armed standoff in downtown Cloverdale ended peacefully Monday evening when a man believed to be armed and wanted on a Canada-wide warrant gave himself up. The takedown ended after drawing throngs of onlookers and involving dozens of police from across the Lower Mainland. The sight of snipers, dog squads and an armoured vehicle stationed on main street had observers wondering if a film crew was in the area, but those who gathered quickly realized an ongoing police incident was underway. The incident began Monday afternoon when police entered at the White Hotel to investigate a theft. Earlier in the day, at least two other people were taken from the hotel, an old apartanother pedestrian.

The man was believed to be armed and dangerous, Insp. Randall Marquardt of the RCMP told reporters Monday. “I do want to emphasize that there is no danger to the public,” he said.

Death not suspicious A 40-year-old man was discovered dead in a 2005 Infiniti G35 sports car early Tuesday morning. The car was found in a ditch on Colebrook Road in South Surrey east of 152 Street. Surrey RCMP said foul play did not appear to be involved. An investigator from the coroner’s office attended the scene. The area was cordoned off to traffic for several hours until the

Intruder takes beer A report of a suspicious person in a South Surrey seniors’ residence sent police to King George Boulevard early Sunday.
A dog team was brought in around 3 a.m. to track a male who was seen in the building. Police also set up a perimeter around the 2500 block in an attempt to locate the suspect. It is unclear when or how he entered the facility, which offers independent and assisted-living accommodation. The dog tracked the male out of the building toward King George, but lost the trail after that, Const. Kenn Meglic said. Roadblocks also failed to locate the perpetrator. There were no reports of injury at the care home, however, a small quantity of beer was determined stolen, Meglic said.

Final reading for Epta plan The Epta proposal received final adoption from White Rock council Monday, after completing an amenity agreement with the city. The project – originally a seniors-oriented development – includes a mixed-use rental residential/commercial building (10.6 metres high) along Johnston Road and a residen-
tial building (48.7 metres) along George Street. According to a planning report, the city’s density bonus policy requires amenity contribution in the amount of $20 per squaremetre floor area for commercial and multi-unit residential projects in the Town Centre. “The applicants have now satisfied the development pre-req-
uisite requirements for completion and registration of amenity agreement in accordance with city density bonus requirements,” planning and development director Paul Stanton stated in his report to council. “The zoning amendment bylaw and development permit can therefore now proceed for final approvals.” – Hannah Sutherland
Exclude wine testimony: defence from page 1 headquarters later in the day. During his questioning of Swallow, Tarnow suggested the June meeting was called to “fix the problem” of procedural mistakes by a junior officer in a high-profile case that was under political pressure to get results. “I remember them going over with me why I did what I did,” was all Swallow would say. “C’mon, officer Swallow,” Tarnow said. Tarnow took issue with the officer’s claim that she put Berner in the back of her police cruiser because it was hot out and her car had air conditioning. “You just made that up, didn’t you?” Tarnow said. “You weren’t concerned about her comfort, ma’am.” Swallow stuck by her story.

Top cop remains upbeat Jeff Nagel Black Press
Gangland killings have eased and new strategies to reform repeat criminals are continuing to pay major dividends, according to B.C.’s top RCMP officer. Pacific Region Deputy Commissioner Gary Bass gave an optimistic outlook of policing in the province in a recent wide-ranging interview with Black Press. He acknowledged much public attention is focused on the pending release of findings of the Braidwood Inquiry into the death of Robert Dziekanski, who died after being tasered at Vancouver airport in 2007. Bass said an ongoing string of high-profile cases of officer misconduct is not reflective of the broader force, nor does it signal an upswing in such incidents. For the past year, he said, the RCMP has shifted to a policy of “proactively” announcing cases where officers have been arrested or charged with crimes. “We’re being more open about it,” he said, adding the force has been under “significant stress” but he sees better days ahead. Fewer gang-linked murders so far this

Pacific Region Deputy Commissioner Gary Bass has an optimistic outlook on policing in B.C. year compared to last year is one area of improvement. “We’re seeing fewer open air kind of shootings,” Bass said. “That’s not to say we’re not getting drive-by shootings, we are. But we’re not getting the numbers of confrontational shootouts that we were.” He said longerterm gains depend on education and preventing youth from getting involved in organized crime. More significant, Bass said, is the decline in overall crime rates. “It’s beyond all expectations,” Bass said. “The stats are down consistently.” The RCMP now employs more than 110 crime analysts to harvest patterns using databases. They help
track prolific offenders, predict crime and decide how to deploy officers. Police closely watch the most prolific criminals after they’re released from prison. The per capita rate of car thefts is down 55 per cent in RCMP’s B.C. detachments from their peak in 2004. Break-and-enters are also down by about 38 per cent since 2004 on a per capita basis. Bass said further gains are coming by partnering with other social agencies to help offenders kick drugs, find housing and get assistance they need. Those trials of integrated prolific offender management are underway in six cities – Kamloops, Prince George, the Capital Regional
District, Surrey, Nanaimo and Williams Lake. He confirmed negotiations are now underway with the B.C. government over the renewal of the RCMP contract in B.C., which expires after 2012. Attorney General Mike de Jong and NDP critic Mike Farnsworth have recently said it would be cheaper for B.C. to continue using the RCMP. Bass also addressed the calls for a regional police force that puts the Lower Mainland’s patchwork of RCMP detachments and municipal police forces under the same uniform and structure. He said several existing integrated policing teams targeting gangs are being merged to ensure an improved approach. He noted many cities prefer their own police to a regional force. Directing a single regional police force would be a challenge, he said, since it would answer to as many as two dozen different mayors and city councils. “Different communities want different things,” he said. “You can’t really talk police regionalization until you talk political regionalization. That’s the reality.”

opinion Peace Arch News Published at White Rock by Black Press Ltd.
here were more than 4,000 hospital visits due to ATV-related injuries in 2004/05, according to the Canadian Institute for Health Information. Children younger than 16 years of age account for almost one-third of ATV injury-related emergency department visits and 30 per cent or more of ATV injury hospitalizations, according to the Canadian Pediatric Society. Almost half of all ATV deaths occur in children under the age of 16. Those chilling statistics should be foremost in the minds of all parents who allow their young children to ride motorized off-road machines. The dangers of ATVs, dirt bikes and similar off-road vehicles hit close to home on the Peninsula. It was about this time six years ago, in May 2004, when Elgin Park student Alex Benson was killed when the dirt bike he was riding in a vacant South Surrey lot flipped after a jump. Benson, to his credit, was wearing a helmet – those who knew him described him as a thrill-seeker, but one who always put safety first – but the protective lid popped off during the accident, and Benson’s head hit the ground. It’s cases such as Benson’s that should act as a deterrent in case the statistics aren’t enough. Yet, it seems in many cases, those facts are unknown, or simply disregarded. Hence, some medical professionals and children’s health organizations feel there should be age restrictions on the use of offroad vehicles (ORV). The concept of more government regulation rankles many people, particularly those who participate in these activities with the right training, precautions and safety equipment. The provincial government appears to agree – it’s not considering age limits, but will introduce laws next year making helmet use mandatory, as well as adult supervision for young riders, who also must only ride machines sized and powered for their age and weight, and at reduced speeds. You would think that such regulation wouldn’t be necessary. You would think that parents would ensure their children are following such basic safety measures. And while it’s true wearing a helmet doesn’t guarantee tragedy won’t result from a crash, it certainly betters the odds. Knowing that, who would let their kids climb onto a steel machine capable of high speeds, in rough terrain, without one? Sadly, the statistics tell us, quite a few. So often, regulations are made necessary by the irresponsible.

162 responding bigger projects designed to benefit from the Clean Energy Act. Just as a case of beer tends to cost more in a private store, the NDP argues that private power is larded with profit. Energy Minister Blair Lekstrom counters that all new power sources will cost more, including the publicly-owned Site C. The NDP’s strongest argument on cost is that BC Hydro can borrow money more cheaply than any private company. The party’s two ablest critics, Bruce Ralston and John Horgan, produced a breakdown last week that shows the utility can issue long-term debt at 4.6 per cent, while private companies are borrowing at 10 to 12 per cent. You’ll pay the difference on your power bill, unless Campbell’s gamble pays off and Hydro makes a premium selling low-carbon power to Alberta, Saskatchewan and California. The NDP attack has mainly focused on the sharp reduction in the role of the B.C. Utilities Commission. The Clean Energy Act dictates that the independent commission won’t review any of BC Hydro’s in-house projects: Site C, a billion-dollar “smart meter” program, and the expansion of the Revelstoke and Mica dams to their design capacity. This is a sensible efficiency move in my view. But the legislation also blocks the commission from reviewing all these private power contracts to see if they are in the public interest.

MP’s answers elicit questions Editor: Re: Questions for Russ Hiebert, June 2. Irrespective of whether taxpayers should finance MP Russ Hiebert’s family trips – this practice is certainly not the norm in business – Hiebert needs to be honest. One of his stated reasons for travelling executive class is the cheaper Tango Plus fare is nonrefundable. He is correct that it is not refundable, but the fare allows for changes with a $50 penalty, and the unused ticket can be applied within a one-year period. Since Hiebert travels frequently, this credit transfer could be easily used. Also, his cost comparisons were misleading. The fares he quoted
were for a one-way ticket without taxes. The $1,894 fare he quoted in fact amounts to $4,088.96 return. Multiply that by four, for his family, and one trip costs $16,355.84. A Tango Plus direct fare would cost $707.96, or $2,831.84 for four. I question whether Canadian taxpayers feel this represents best practice and is money well spent. When asked about printing costs, Hiebert stated, “My constituents constantly tell me they want to be informed about issues… regular newsletters and surveys is a key part of my communications.” Apparently, Hiebert only listens to some of his constituents. I have on numerous occasions asked that the unsolicited mailings he distributes be discontinued to my home. I have never had a response. I suggest Hiebert post his musings on his website. Those interested could access the information, and the printing costs, wasted paper and
added expense of disposing of his communications be eliminated. I also suggest Hiebert take a good look at whose interests he’s serving – his own or the people who elected him to represent them. Shirley Kingdon, Surrey Q Russ Hiebert answered one Peace Arch News question: “I and most of my colleagues, and their spouses and children, choose executive class when we can. In addition, during the five-hour flight, I use this time to review documents and work on government business on a laptop. This material is confidential and the larger workspace gives me room to maintain that confidentiality.” Travelling with a spouse, one small child and a baby, just how much government work can this MP do? For any parent who has travelled with a child and an infant, this is just about impossible. With two young children in such
Family business Editor: Re: MP defends expense ranking as family matter, May 26. Judging from the firestorm that has taken over the print media and the open-line talk shows regarding MP Russ Hiebert’s expenses for the last fiscal year, we could surely expect this newspaper would print numerous letters on this topic. Perhaps not all will be critical, if they take the time to consider the choices that were made and the fact this was done in full compliance with Parliamentary guidelines. Let me be clear that I support Hiebert, and that I and many others worked very hard to re-elect him in the last two elections. I did so because I generally agree with the policies espoused by the Conservative Party of Canada, and I believe that Hiebert is the best candidate to represent this riding. It also seems the overwhelming majority of voters agreed with me as he won the last election handily. Hiebert states he is committed to keeping his family together, and I wholeheartedly support them for their commitment to family. My wife and I celebrate our 50th year together, and family is our core value. In our first three years of marriage, I was only able to spend a cumulative three months with my family due to work commitments. That was not acceptable. Changes were made so our family could be together. That was not easy, moving family the length and breadth of B.C. and most of Alberta. My employer supported and encouraged families to move together, and I and others took full advantage of all assistance. Can I fault Hiebert for doing the same? I think not. Transparency can be a good thing, and if auditor general Sheila Fraser wishes to examine the accounts, perhaps that may prove beneficial if it eliminates excesses. If guidelines are too lax then revise them, but do
MP Russ Hiebert with sign-manager Cam Fergusson during the last election. not sanction anyone for wanting to keep their families together. Hiebert and his staff assist hundreds of constituents every month. He is known as one of the hardest-working MPs on the Hill. If anyone seriously objects to his travel expenses, try working long hours with multiple appointments and meetings, without the support of family. Perhaps you might appreciate then why so many support him. Cam Fergusson, Surrey Q I can’t express the feelings of anger I have in reading about Russ Hiebert’s expenses. I also have a young family, and I work extremely hard in a health-care profession to support them. It would take years for me to make $200,000 – this for one year of flights! I read that this is an allowable expense, but it still leaves me with a sick feeling like I’ve been taken advantage of. It adds more pain to hear those flyers I’m always recycling cost us $81,000. I need to have a shower to wash off this feeling… Sam Fergus, Surrey Q It speaks volumes that Russ Hiebert and his defenders say he wasn’t doing anything illegal and was in the bounds of Parliament to spend the most money of any ablebodied MP in all of Canada. It is admirable that Russ so stoutly defends the value of family.
Unfortunately, it seems to only be his family that he and the Conservatives care about. His sense of entitlement – and that of all MPs – should provoke outrage. The fact this largess is accepted as “within the bounds of Parliamentary rules” is detestable enough in the light of the average Canadian experience, but to hide behind the defence of “just trying to keep my family together” is pathetic. My wife, a government lawyer, has never flown executive or business class, even when she could have in the pre-Radwanski days. When she has to travel to Ottawa, she stays over the weekend to save on airfare, she stays with friends to save on a hotel, and she is frugal in meals at restaurants. She does this out of respect to taxpayers – you and me and all the people who don’t have their snouts in the public trough. Hiebert is doing a fine job following in the footsteps of the likes of Brian Mulroney and other politicians who feel a sense of entitlement that, to the rest of us, passes as arrogance beyond belief. If “keeping the family together” is good enough for our MPs, it should be good enough for us, the employers who pay them. Either allow me to deduct the cost of “keeping my family together” or suck it up and pay your family’s own way like the rest of us! Alan McInnes, Surrey
close quarters, just how secure are the confidential papers? Just how does Hiebert keep these papers from prying eyes of fellow passengers, behind, in front and seats on the sides? As for the cost to the Canadian taxpayer, Hiebert is still trying to hide the true cost. According to Air Canada’s web site, on June 2 the cost for Hiebert, his wife and young child would cost the taxpayers $6,110.04. When their baby is two, there would be another $2,036.88. And that’s just one way. Mr. Hiebert, please be upright and honest and don’t try to act like a politician trying to hide the facts from your constituency. William A. Cameron, White Rock Q Whether audited or not, Russ Hiebert’s unapologetic accounting of his spendthrift ways raises more questions than it answers. For instance, how many roundtrip tickets Vancouver/Ottawa were purchased for $220,000, keeping in mind children under two years old usually travel free? And, in fact, how many days was Parliament in session 2008/09? Then, how does one run up a telephone bill for the sum of $1,929 per month when one can Skype or phone anywhere in the world for next to nothing these days? And, regarding the $88,000-figure for what our MP calls his key source of communication with 120,000 constituent begs this question, what was the cost to recycle the rubbish? Hiebert feels entitled to spend $8,000 per week for airlines tickets for his family to accompany him to work while seniors and others in the constituency often must live on just $1,500 per month. Where’s the democracy here? Elizabeth Kearns, White Rock Q I commend Russ Hiebert for wanting to spend as much time as he can with his family. And yes, he is working well within the rules of Parliament and travelling with your family is allowed and is a wonderful perk that this family enjoys. However, there are several things that just annoy the hell out of me regarding this whole matter. First, is anyone surprised Hiebert was “too busy” to answer this newspaper’s questions in person or on the phone? How surprising when things start to get rough, a politician hides behind the old “gee, really busy working hard for the citizens, can’t actually talk to one right now.” One interesting piece of information contained in his emailed answers is that the Hieberts tend to fly executive class because the $360 difference is “minimal.” I have a decent paying job, and so does my wife, and we do not consider $360 per person to be “minimal.” My job also requires me to travel – obviously not as much as Hiebert but around 11 times a year. I also have to review confidential material and somehow manage to do it in the coach section. Yes, it sucks in coach but the majority of us somehow manage to survive. Just because travelling in executive class is allowed by Parliament, it doesn’t make it right. D. Kinnie, Surrey

VICTORIA – A task force on local elections has recommended tighter spending rules for candidates, and a four-year term of office for those elected to municipal councils and school boards. The task force of councillors and B.C. Liberal MLAs decided not to place limits on campaign contributions by individuals, businesses and unions. Requiring disclosure of all donations and placing limits on candidate spending is sufficient to allow voters to make up their minds, said Community and Rural Development Minister Bill Bennett, co-chair of the task force. The task force also recommended against giving businesses a vote in local elections. Some coastal communities have seen an industrial tax revolt led by Catalyst Paper, which unsuccessfully argued in court that local councils have loaded too much of the local tax burden on their mills. Bennett said another task force is looking at the imbalance between residential and business taxes in some communities, but the principle of one person, one vote was deemed more important than businesses being taxed without representation. “You look around the world and you see that there is no corporate or business vote anywhere in the world, except for downtown London, England, and nobody lives in downtown London, England,” Bennett said. NDP community development critic Scott Fraser said the B.C. Liberals

Community and Rural Development Minister Bill Bennett and Surrey Coun. Barbara Steele take questions at the legislature. didn’t want to impose limits on campaign contributions at the municipal level, because they have refused to do so provincially. Corporate donations have put the B.C. Liberal Party far ahead of the NDP in campaign money collected in recent years, and NDP leader Carole James has repeatedly called for a ban on corporate and union donations to provincial parties. Fraser, a former mayor of Tofino, said he supports the idea of extending municipal terms from three to four years. It takes a new mayor a year to “get up to speed” and that leaves little time to enact policy before preparations begin for another election, he said. Bennett said the recommendations will go to cabinet, and he hopes legislation can be passed to implement them before local elections come around again in November 2011.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula
Hazelmere Organic Farm signs on with Semiahmoo House’s employment program
Embracing diversity in the workplace Hannah Sutherland
aty King didn’t think twice about hiring Janek Bajerski at her South Surrey business, Hazelmere Organic Farm. Having grown up in the Philippines with a younger sister who has Down syndrome, King is well aware of how capable people with disabilities can be. “It was a no-brainer to not treat her any differently,” she said of her sibling, Cookie, now 52. So when she learned of Semiahmoo House Society’s Customized Employment Program, which assists people with disabilities in finding employment, King jumped on the opportunity. “I thought ‘why not?’” she said. “There’s so many at Semiahmoo House who are more than able. “There’s no reason why they shouldn’t be employed.” She was introduced to the program by customer and Fieldstone Artisan Breads owner Paul Hanley, who hired Eric Sherer two years ago to work in his bakery three days a week. Peace Arch News reported last spring how Sherer, who has Down syndrome, was a dependable employee, washing dishes, making Brian Giebelhaus photo boxes and vacuuming – not to Janek Bajerski works three days a week at Hazelmere Organic Farm, a position he was placed in through a Semiahmoo House Society program. mention putting smiles on the with disabilities, and proved to be do something and he says ‘Yes, I offered since 2008 by Community around working with people with faces of both customers and staff. can.’ That’s his standard response: Living BC and the Ministry of disabilities, she noted.

Loan system to help low-income families Kevin Diakiw Black Press
Facing certain eviction, more than two dozen people – including a South Surrey mother and her children – have been rescued by a new loan system for people in need. The Surrey Rent Bank (SRB) provides one-time funds for working people who, through some calamity, face the imminent possibility of winding up on the street, but who wouldn’t qualify for financing from a bank. “It’s just one tool, one pillar, in supports for people on low income,” said SRB’s Judy Peterson. “It’s people that just fall through the cracks. They’ve got into a crisis... and they can’t get help from anywhere else.” The pilot project, modeled after programs in Ontario and Alberta, has been in operation under the umbrella of the Newton Advocacy Group Society since February. It has so far provided about 10 loans, and has funding for about 20 more. The money can be used for rent or utility debts and must be repaid, Peterson said. Families that meet the criteria are eligible for up to $1,600, while individual loans can be as much as $1,200, Peterson said. The money is paid directly to the landlord or utility company that is owed arrears. When the program launched, the funds were only available to Surrey residents. That changed about a
month ago, after applications from areas including White Rock and Delta identified a need, Peterson said. Those who need such a helping hand constitute a “fairly narrow group,” Peterson noted. They’re not on income assistance or supported by any other service agency, and have always managed to get by. One applicant that didn’t qualify was a married man with four children, who works night shifts for $14 an hour. He was ineligible because the family’s expenses surpassed his income. “The ones that really bother us are the ones that we’re turning down,” Peterson said. “The ones that we can’t give the money to, it’s just tragic.” Still, for those who do qualify, it is a relatively inexpensive way of keeping people from becoming homeless, she said. The funds are provided at an interest rate 1.5 per cent above prime rate, with a two-year repayment schedule. If the loan is repaid, and financial management courses are taken, the interest is returned to the borrower. Funding has been provided by the Surrey Homelessness and Housing Society, Vancity Credit Union, Envision Financial and Coast Capital Savings.

More than 5,200 books were collected to support and promote local literacy, following SurreyPanorama MLA Stephanie Cadieux’s Book Drive for Kids.

Youth sought for tanning awareness campaign Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter
Natasha Raey organizer
The Canadian Cancer Society is putting a call out for local youth who have made a conscious decision not to tan. About a dozen girls and women – ranging from high school-age to late 20s – are sought for the campaign, which would see the successful applicants attend community events; be featured on posters and in the media; and speak about their personal reasons for not tanning, as well as the potential
health impacts of UV exposure. According to Health Canada, exposure to ultraviolet A and B radiation can cause sunburn, eye damage and other health effects, including an increased risk of skin cancer. Natasha Raey, who is organizing the initiative for the Canadian Cancer Society, said she chose to recruit participants on the Peninsula because of its close proximity to the beach, and the past involvement local youth have had in social issues.
Trusted Investment Advice for over 25 years!
“Most of the youth in this community, I find, are very socially conscious.” The pilot project will run over the summer, before being taken to other communities. Raey said she hopes having youth at the forefront of the campaign will help reach others of the same age demographic. “The traditional ways of getting information out isn’t effective, I find, for youth,” Raey said. “I think you need something that’s savvy and forward.” She said the purpose of the cam-
paign is to dispel myths about tanning, raise awareness and change the “cultural viewpoint” that people should have tanned skin. “We’re just trying to show people it’s OK, you don’t have to be tanned,” she said. “Our goal really is just to inform and educate. (Then) people can make their own decisions.” Raey will be accepting submissions for youth ambassadors until the end of June. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 778-552-4538.

Campbell, James to tour province
Politicians to focus on HST this summer Tom Fletcher
VICTORIA – Both Premier Gordon Campbell and NDP leader Carole James say they are looking forward to touring the province this summer, and each has a tough sell ahead for voters. For Campbell, it’s the harmonized sales tax that comes into effect on July 1. For James, it’s convincing the business community that her party shares its concerns. The B.C. Liberal government pushed through its last piece of legislation Thursday, forcing an end to a heated debate over private electricity development and adjourning the legislature’s spring session. With the government still to decide whether it will go ahead with a scheduled fall session, James said she wondered if Thursday would be Campbell’s last day in the legislature. His popularity and that of his party have tumbled because of a loss of public trust over the implementation of the HST, and she predicted any sales pitch he makes now will only backfire. “If the premier and the B.C. Liberals think that going out and using taxpayer dollars on ads, or traveling the province trying to convince them that the tax is good for them is going to change anything, then they’ve lost touch even further than I

think anyone would have imagined,” James said. Campbell laughed when told that James had predicted he might retire before the legislature sits again. “I think she can count on seeing me again,” he said. Campbell said he will travel the province as he usually does, and he expects the topic of the HST will come up. “I know that the HST is in place, I know that British Columbians are going to benefit from it starting on July 1 of this year. It’s going to generate tens of thousands of jobs, billions of dollars in investment, and save small businesses across the province $150 million in compliance costs,” Campbell said. James said she will continue to reach out to the business community on developing the economy while protecting the environment and social programs. “We need to make sure that we’re showing people that we have a vision for the economy in British Columbia, that we understand the challenge of them not having jobs in their communities,” James said. “That’s why I’ve spent a large portion of this session working with business folks, working with people from all areas of the economy to build that vision, and we’re going to continue to do that.”

Mayors wonâ€™t be asked for cash Jeff Nagel Black Press
Metro Vancouver mayors wonâ€™t be asked to vote again this summer on whether to stump up more money for TransLink on behalf of local residents. TransLink officials are assembling a base plan for 2011 that will see the transportation authority work within a $1.27-billion annual budget. No funding supplement will be requested, like the one approved by mayors last year that delivered a $130-million increase by raising fares, the fuel tax and pay parking tax. That was a stop-gap solution delivering just enough money for TransLink to tread water â€“ but not nearly enough to embark on the major transit expansion program the authority had pitched then. A new deal on more revenue â€“ which would likely require mayors to vote again on fur-
ther increases â€“ now depends on negotiations with the province. Up in the air is exactly how the promised $1.4-billion Evergreen Line to Coquitlam will be funded and whether that solution will also finance other priorities, like new rapid transit lines to Surrey and UBC, a third SeaBus and a major bus fleet expansion. TransLink spokesman Ken Hardie said the authority will focus on maintaining the existing system and reducing administration costs. Transportation Minister Shirley Bond said the Evergreen Line will advance to the procurement stage this summer, with construction starting in early 2011. She said her ministry is working with TransLink and the mayors to secure a regional contribution to the line. â€œThe Evergreen Line will proceed on schedule without delay while we continue these discussions,â€? Bond said.
Ottawa and Victoria have jointly committed to provide $810 million for the line. A report is being prepared tabulating all sources of funding for TransLink. Itâ€™s hoped mayors and the province will be able to use it to agree on how much is paid by people in the region and how much more they can afford. Metroâ€™s regional planning committee, meanwhile, is criticizing TransLinkâ€™s consultations on the 2011 base plan. There are only a few public meetings and thereâ€™s not enough time for Metro to adequately consider it, said Langley Township Mayor Rick Green. â€œThis is insanity â€“ this is not consultation of any kind,â€? he said. The plan calls for replacement of 133 buses, 82 community shuttles and 137 HandyDart vehicles. TransLink would also advance with plans to add smart cards and turnstiles to SkyTrain.

Robert Davidson Eagle Transforming: The Prints of Robert Davidson will be on show at Surrey Art Gallery, 13750 88 Ave., until June 21.

A member of the Order of B.C. and Order of Canada, Davidson was honoured with the 2010 Governor General’s award for artistic
achievement in the visual and media arts. In his graphic work, Davidson uses established Haida iconography, and his art speaks to presentday personal, social and political realities. Eagle Transforming is the first exhibition to review the artist’s work as a printmaker in almost 30 years, and features some 40 works selected from the holdings of the Vancouver Art Gallery and supplemented with generous loans from the artist. The exhibition has been curated by Ian Thom, senior curator-historical at Vancouver Art Gallery. Admission is by donation. Robert Davidson in Conversation with Ian Thom will be held free Sunday, May 2 at 2 p.m. For more information or gallery hours, visit www. arts.surrey.ca

A piece by ceramic artist Elaine Brewer-White, who will speak at the Surrey Art Gallery, 13750 88 Ave., June 10.

Players Club Tickets are on sale now for The White Rock Players Club’s next production, The Stepmother (running until June 26 at Coast Capital Playhouse, 1532 Johnston Rd.) The 1920s-era show helps correct a historical wrong by presenting a protofeminist play that has only recently been restored to public view after being lost for more than 80 years. The drama, written by playwright Githa Sowerby (Rutherford and Son) received only one production by a private theatre club in London in 1924. But it was considered a lost work until a copy was found in the archives of theatre publisher Samuel French. A powerful drama about a woman working hard to raise two stepdaughters, in spite of the unreliability and scheming ways of her husband, the piece finally received a belated professional debut at last year’s Shaw Festival, winning recognition as both a period piece and a feminist statement far ahead of its time. The play features Chloe Traynor as Lois, the title character and Players Club past president Fred Partridge as her ne’er-dowell spouse. Evening performances are 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, with a 2:30 p.m. matinee Sunday, June 20. Tickets ($16, $14 seniors) are available from wrpctix@ uniserve.com or the theatre boxoffice, at 604-536-7535.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula
Young runners make their mark at B.C’s Nick Greenizan
f any predictions were to be made after witnessing last weekend’s B.C. Secondary Schools Track and Field Championships, it would be this: the future for Peninsula schools is looking awfully bright. And the present isn’t too shabby, either. Led by a strong contingent of Grade 11s – Earl Marriott’s Katie Reid, White Rock Christian’s Sean Keane and Elgin Park’s Jake Bruchet – as well as Earl Marriott’s Grade 10 phenom Deon Clifford, Peninsula athletes found themselves on the podium plenty at the two-day event Friday and Saturday at Burnaby’s Swangard Stadium. And all can return next year for another shot at gold, too. “There’s a lot of good, young Grade 10 boys coming up, and lots of Grade 9 girls, too, so it’s looking good. There’s a lot of depth here,” said EMS track and field coach Jim Clifford, also a member of Ocean Athletics Track and Field Club, which includes athletes from all local schools. Though no South Surrey schools cracked the top five in the overall team standings, Earl Marriott’s girls team was fourth, while WRCA’s boys placed fifth as a group. Reid, one of Canada’s top 400-m runners, won her signature event in 54.41 seconds – just 1.31 seconds ahead of Semiahmoo’s Vanessa Sjoberg, who took silver. Reid also snagged a silver medal in the 200, finishing less than three-tenths of a second back of McRoberts Secondary’s ShaiAnne Davis. Reid set personal bests in both races. “In the (400 m) heats on Friday I ran a 54.47 which was a PB, and on

Earl Marriott’s Katie Reid leads the pack in the girls 400-m last weekend in Burnaby. Reid won gold, with a personal best time. Left, Semiahmoo’s Meghan Palesch competes in 80m hurdles in the Grade 8/9 portion of the provincial meet. Saturday I even beat that,” Reid explained. “In the final, there were just a lot of girls right there pushing me... it was great.” Deon Clifford – who also helped the Mariners to a junior rugby title in May – followed up his provincial performance last year with another impressive display this time around. Last year as a Grade 9 runner, Clifford won the Grade 8/9 invitational meet’s 800, 1,500 and 3,000 m races. This year, running at the much-tougher senior level, the speedy Clifford was second in the boys 3,000 m, and third in the 1,500.
WRCA’s Keane led the way in the boys 1,500 – a race which turned out to be an all-Peninsula podium finish, with WRCA teammate Blair Johnston finishing second and Clifford third. “The race went really well – exactly according to plan. Just perfect,” Keane said. “And it’s nice for (WRCA) to get that onetwo finish, too.” Johnston, in Grade 12, added a bronze medal to his collection in the 3,000. Keane narrowly missed another medal, finishing fourth in the 800 – just .44
seconds back of third-place Thomas Riva of Kwalikum. Elgin Park’s Bruchet was front-and-centre at one of the meet’s most dramatic races – Saturday’s 2,000-m steeplechase. Oak Bay’s Scott Secco took an early lead in the race – getting ahead of pre-race favourite Justin Kent of Kwantlen Park – before tumbling over a hurdle on the home stretch. With just 100 m to go to the finish line, both Kent and Bruchet moved ahead, with the Elgin Park runner taking first see page 30
Three-day, three-course event begins Thursday
Pros return to Hazelmere for pro-am Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter
A year after Hazelmere Golf Course’s Canadian Tour golf tournament was rebranded as the City of Surrey Invitational, the popular event has changed again. This time, the tournament – which began in 2006 at the Greater Vancouver Charity Classic – is not a sanctioned CanTour tournament, and instead will be a three-day proam event which takes places not just as Hazelmere, but also its West Coast Golf Group sister courses, Langley’s Belmont Golf Course and Swan-e-Set Bay Resort in Pitt Meadows. The tournament, now called the West Coast Golf Group Invitational Pro-Am, will still

First prize is $10,000. And though stretching the tournament over three courses this year presents a challenge for the WCGG’s maintenance crews, Peverley was excited to be able to showcase all three properties. “That’s the whole idea,” he said. “And the courses are all in great shape. The rough isn’t quite as long as it has been (at previous CanTour events), but the greens are fast… we’re ready to go.”

We’ve Moved!! “After 29 Years”
Cho’s move ‘one of meet’s best moments’

Top finishers aside, one of the weekends’ most impressive moments, at least according to Semiahmoo Totems coach Maureen de St. Croix, had nothing to do with results. In the girls 1,500-m steeplechase, Semi’s Rachel Cho was in fifth place when a fellow competitor tripped over the final hurdle and fell hard to the ground. Rather than continue past her, Cho stopped to help her up. She settled for seventh place as a result. “She could’ve easily kept going, nobody would have said a thing if she had, but she didn’t – it was an amazing thing to do, and we were all very proud of her,” said de St. Croix. “It was one of the best moments of the entire meet.” For full provincial results, including results from the Grade 8/9 meet, visit www.bcsscctfa.bc.ca

CURBSIDE ORGANICS COLLECTION SERVICE. We want to hear from you! Surrey’s residents are currently diverting over 50% of their waste from landfill. Great job, Surrey! However, there’s more to be done. The City will be expanding its curbside collection program to include kitchen waste materials such as food scraps (meats, vegetables, fats, bones, etc), paper towels and tissues and other fibrous materials. By separating these materials from the garbage stream, we can reach our target of 70% waste diversion by 2015.

Rick Hansen’s Wheels in Motion Wheelchair Challenge returns to the Peninsula this month. The event is set for Saturday, June 12 at South Surrey Athletic Park, and will feature teams of able-bodied people in wheelchairs navigating through an obstacle course.

The entrance fee of $200 per person can be raised through sponsorship; charitable receipts are available. Part proceeds go to the Wheels in Motion foundation to help fund spinalcord research, while the rest of the money raised goes to help local people with disabilities. Volunteers are also needed for the one-day event. On the day of the event, registration begins at 11 a.m., with the relay at noon.

J. Lorne Ginther Barrister & Solicitor
Why do lawyers in British Columbia call themselves Barristers and Solicitors? Answer: In 1843 when the city of Victoria was founded before the settling of the international boundary between the United States and the two British Colonies of Vancouver Island and British Columbia, the colonists of the two separate colonies required a more formal system of justice than was provided by the de facto government of the day, the Hudson's Bay Company. For centuries in Britain, there was a separation between the lawyers who presented cases to Court, and those who didn't. The lawyers that conducted trials were called barristers, after the "bar" that separated the judges and lawyers from the public. All other legal functions were performed by solicitors. That name evolved from the old french term solicitor meaning "to urge". Solicitors drew all commercial documents such as contracts, conveyances, leases, and all court documents for all lawsuits. Barristers themselves were separated into two classes, Queen's (or King's) Counsel, and Junior barristers. Becoming a Queen's Counsel was called "taking the silk" because only they could wear a silk gown. (Yes, they are called gowns, even though some macho counsel wrongly call them robes). Juniors wore "stuff" gowns made of wool. When a client wanted to sue someone, or defend himself from a lawsuit, he went to a solicitor who prepared all court documents, conducted the examinations for discoveries, and attempted all settlements. If a trial became necessary, the solicitor prepared a "brief" which included all documents necessary for the case to be presented. The solicitor then chose a barrister to present the case to Court. The solicitor traditionally tied a pink ribbon around the "brief" and gave it to the barrister. After reading the "brief" the barrister re-interviewed the witnesses, and conducted the trial. In our two thinly populated colonies of the 1840's, there were neither enough cases nor enough lawyers to provide both a barrister and solicitor in every community, so there was a fusion of the two, and voila - "Barrister and Solicitor". It meant that a small community's legal needs could be met by one person. A bit of trivia: In England barristers only address their fellow barristers by their single last name, for example, "Ginther" not "Mr. Ginther", never "Lorne" - just "Ginther". The last person to continue this practice in B.C. was Allan McEachern, the late Chief Justice of B.C. More trivia: The horsehair wigs still worn by barristers in England, were abolished in B.C. in 1905. Even more trivia: Lawyers and Judges wear black in court because when Queen Anne died of smallpox at the age of 32 in 1694, the whole of England was grief striken, similar to when Princess Diana died, and nearly everyone in the nation wore black. Judges and barristers still do. In the USA, judges still wear black because Queen Anne died eighty years before the Declaration of Independence, and was queen of the thirteen colonies.

Hogg, Kathleen Blair July 14, 1918 – May 29, 2010 It is with great sadness we announce the loss of our loving mother and grandmother, Kathleen Blair Hogg (nee King). Born on July 14, 1918 in Fairfax Manitoba she was raised on the extensive family farm which was awarded the distinction of being named the most beautiful farm in Manitoba. She trained as a registered nurse in Portage La Prairie and then moved to Vancouver in the early 1940’s to nurse at Vancouver General Hospital. In 1942 she joined the Royal Canadian Air Force and was stationed at Pat Bay on Vancouver Island where she met the love of her life Dr RJ Allan Hogg. They were married on June 20, 1945 at Christ Church Cathedral in Vancouver and moved to White Rock the following year to join the community and raise their family. She was an active member of many community groups including being a founding member of the Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary, the Rotary Anns, and the Daughters of the Nile. After raising her family she enrolled at the British Columbia Institute of Technology where she upgraded her registered nursing degree and returned to nursing in her early 60’s. Our mother was a gracious, funny, compassionate woman who was always present for her husband, children, and grandchildren. The memories are forever. Predeceased by her loving husband in 2005 she will be sorely missed by her children Gordon (LaVerne), Joan (Bill), Linda, John (Tracy) and her seven grandchildren James, Blair, Robert (Tania), Katy, Ali, Allan, and Jackson. A service will be held in her honour on Tuesday June 22, 2010 @ 3:00pm at First United Church 15385 Semiahmoo Avenue, White Rock BC. In lieu of ﬂowers the family asks that donations be made to the Dr Al Hogg Family Doctor Legacy Fund at the Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation 15521 Russell Avenue, White Rock BC V4B 2R4 which raises funds to develop and train family doctors to serve the community of White Rock. The family extends their sincere thanks to the wonderful residents and staff of the Dr Al Hogg Pavilion of Peace Arch Hospital who lovingly cared for our mother in her last years.

Leo was born in Finland and immigrated to Hearst, Ontario in 1930 and spent much of his life working in the Forrest industry in Hinton, Alberta. He and Rowena moved to South Surrey in 1985. Leo was a man of faith who loved God. A funeral service of Thanksgiving was held on Tuesday, 8th June, 2010. Donations instead of ﬂowers may be sent to the Peace Arch Hospital Foundation or All Saints Community Church (P.O. Box 75068 White Rock, B.C., V4B 5L3). Rowena would like to thank neighbours and friends for their support; the nursing staff at Peace Arch Hospital for their wonderful care; Dr. Paton for his care and compassion; and Pastor Peter Klenner for his visits and support for Leo.
