Attempted murder charge

Attack on gay man a hate crime Dan Ferguson

Man stabbed

When the judge said the attack was a hate crime, Charles McKay teared up, wiping his eyes. Then Vancouver B.C. Supreme Court Justice Joel Groves proceeded to sentence the man who brutally attacked McKay’s boyfriend to another year in jail, calling the attack “cowardly” and “abhorrent” to Canadian values of diversity and tolerance. “Wow,” McKay whispered. He’d been waiting nearly 20 months to hear those words. It was September of 2008 when McKay and his boyfriend, Michael Kandola South Surrey resident Jordan Smith, went for an evening walk through Vancouver’s West End. The two men were holding hands. They later said it wasn’t something they would do in Surrey or even on Vancouver’s Granville Street entertainment district, but on Davie Street, in the West End district that is home to many gay bars and gay-friendly businesses, they felt safe. Then they were spotted by Vancouver resident Michael Kandola and his four friends. The pack of men shouted insults and homophobic slurs at Smith and McKay. “Excuse me?” Smith said. A security camera outside a 7-Eleven store captured the attack as Smith turned back to face the five. They advanced toward him, surrounding Smith as he backed up. Then Kandola came around behind Smith and sucker-punched him in the head, breaking Smith’s jaw and knocking him  see page 4

One man has been charged with attempted murder in connection with a late-night stabbing Saturday at a Goggs Avenue home. Police, fire and ambulance crews raced to a two-storey house in the 15800-block of Goggs around 10:30 p.m. May 1, after the victim alerted a family member to his injuries. As neighbours watched from their decks, windows and the street, paramedics brought a 50-year-old man out on a stretcher. They wrapped him in a white blanket before loading him into a waiting ambulance. What looked like blood could be seen streaking down his right leg. By Sunday morning, two people – a man and a woman – were in police custody; the victim, who is a South Surrey resident, was in surgery; and police tape surrounded two homes: the site of the altercation and the house next door. Police say the woman, 48, lives at the home and is related to the victim. She was released without charges Sunday night. The accused, a 46-year-old White Rock resident, was arrested just before 9 a.m. Sunday. He is known to both the woman and the victim, said Const. Janelle Shoihet. Bradley Charters appeared in Surrey Provincial Court Monday in connection with the incident. He was remanded until a second appearance May 5. What led to the altercation remains unclear. “We don’t really know exactly what sparked it,” said Shoihet, who would not disclose Tuesday the weapon used in the attack, but said the victim suffered life-threatening wounds to his back and abdomen. “He went to hospital right then, and for a while it was touch-and-go,” Shoihet said. At the scene, emergency crews had consid see page 4

Efficiency drive aims to raise more fare revenue

ONLY THE BEST! WHOLE

Jeff Nagel Black Press

TransLink will “rationalize” transit service by boosting the frequency of bus runs in some areas at certain times and reducing it in others. The aim is to wring more revenue out of the transit system by trimming service hours in areas or time slots with low ridership and running buses more often where more riders can be served. The first such changes kick in this month, with the 351, 352 and 354 buses connecting to the Canada Line at Bridgeport Station out of South File photo Surrey running more often between TransLink’s 351, 352 and 354 buses out of South 7 and 8 a.m., but less frequently ear- Surrey will now run more often between 7-8 a.m. lier in the morning before 7 a.m. More shifts in bus service are expected in Officials say that reflects a trend of riders here leaving later for downtown now September but the bulk of changes will come that the Canada Line provides them a faster, in 2011. “Service rationalization does not necessarmore reliable trip.

TransLink has laid out principles it says Reduced frequency will be felt between 4 and 5 a.m. (the 351 changes from every 30 will guide service rationalization.

news Surrey bylaw puts restrictions on resellers

City tries to put dent in scrap-metal heists Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Surrey has a tough new bylaw that slams the door on metal thieves looking to sell their stolen scrap. The city has incurred millions of dollars in damages over the past few years from people ripping out cable to street lamps and other electrical systems. The crooks are after the valuable copper wiring. Surrey has long believed the answer to the problem is cutting off the ability to easily sell the metal. On Monday, Surrey council passed a bylaw governing how the city’s scrap dealers conduct business.

It will require all scrap-metal businesses to record the name, address and phone number of the seller, as well as all identifying information about the customer’s vehicle. Each transaction is linked to that personal information and will be available on request to police or city bylaw officers. Scrap dealers are also forbidden to conduct business with anyone under 18, or people under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Metal dealers won’t be allowed to buy anything with municipal logos or BC Hydro, BC Transmission Corporation, Telus, Shaw or Rogers markings. In addition, the material must be held by the dealer for seven days.

Failure to comply will result in a fine of between $1,000 and $10,000. The introduction of the bylaw, first called for three years ago, met with several delays, including a successful court challenge in New Westminster of that city’s pawn shop bylaw, which is very similar. Surrey’s bylaw received three readings in 2008, but hadn’t move to final reading. Legislation required consultation with affected businesses before introducing the bylaw. “Concerns were raised by two of the seven businesses regarding the length of time (seven days) they would be required to hold scrap metal,” the corporate report to council

states. “No other concerns were raised.” Acting Mayor Judy Villeneuve said Monday she’s happy to see the bylaw before council. “They were taking wire from telephones, Hydro lines, and things that were affecting traffic lights, the safety issues in this city,” Villeneuve said. “I think (the bylaw) sends a strong message out that it’s not going to be that easy to move metal in this city.” Surrey was initially working with neighbouring municipalities about developing a regional bylaw, but that didn’t occur. Coun. Marvin Hunt said it was time to act, regardless of regional approval. The bylaw takes effect immediately.

Police released this photograph after a liquor store was targeted.

Empty handed White Rock RCMP are looking for a soft-spoken man in connection with an attempted armed robbery at the White Rock Liquor Store Wednesday. Given the reaction of the clerk he encountered, it’s possible he may also be somewhat ineffectual. “He came in, produced a knife and said, ‘give me all the money that’s in your till,’” Const. Janelle Shoihet said Friday. “She picked up the phone and started calling police. He said, ‘give me the phone,’ and she wouldn’t. “She wasn’t doing what he wanted her to do, so he left.” Surveillance photos from the store’s security camera show a Caucasian male between 20 and 30 years old and about six-foot-two. He has short brown hair, and is wearing a black baseball hat and a brown hoodie. At least two other people were in the store at the time of the attempted robbery at around 8 p.m. That may have influenced the man’s decision to flee rather than become aggressive, Shoihet said. The man fled the scene on a cruiser-style bicycle, which had white stripes and fenders over both the front and back wheels. Police are investigating a possible connection between the incident and one at Hillcrest Video Store on April 2, in which a lone man produced a knife and demanded cash before fleeing in a metallic-blue, four-door sedan. Anyone with information is asked to contact Const. Lisa Shaw at 778593-3639 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. - Tracy Holmes

Preservation bylaw allowed to designate specific ‘heritage trees’

White Rock plans to revisit new tree rules Alex Browne Staff Reporter

White Rock council gave final reading and adoption Monday night to its new tree-management bylaw, in spite of a last ditch effort by Coun. Helen Fathers to persuade other members to change their vote. But a successful motion from Coun. Lynne Sinclair – that staff report on making the bylaw city-wide – was aimed at addressing one of Fathers’ concerns. Fathers had objected to the fact the bylaw – designed to regulate and prohibit the cutting, removal and damage of trees – pertains to specific preservation areas within the city rather than being city-wide. This, she said last week, creates an undemocratic inequity between some property owners who are free to remove and trim trees because they want to preserve their views, and others who must go through a full process including fees, permits and requirement for replacement trees to do the same work. But Fathers was the only vote in opposition to

Then he advanced on McKay, who was in shock, in what the judge described as a “bullying and threatening fashion.” A passing cab driver intervened by shouting that the police were coming and claiming he was videotaping the incident. At that, the five ran away. After his arrest and a preliminary hearing in Surrey Provincial Court, Kandola pleaded guilty to one count of assault causing bodily harm. On Friday, Kandola made a second attempt at an apology to Smith and McKay immediately before the judge’s decision, in the form of a letter read into the record by his lawyer while Kandola sat silent in the prisoners box. “I made a bad choice,” the letter said, blaming a “horrible mix” of “alcohol and adrenalin” for the incident. “I am not, nor have I ever been, a person who discriminates against gay people,” the written statement said. Neither the letter nor a very brief verbal apology during a previous court appearance made much of an impression on the judge, who said the expression of remorse was “limited and late in the day.” Groves rejected a defence argument that Smith contributed

Smoke alarms now a must Kevin Diakiw

A U T H E N T I C I TA L I A N R xE xS xT xA xU xR xA xN xT

Black Press

It is now provincial law that everyone must have a functional smoke alarm in their home. The new fire code legislation took effect May 1, and requires the devices be present in every private home, hotel and motel. Surrey fire Chief Len Garis is pleased to see the legislation come forward, noting that previously, homes built before 1979 didn’t legally require smoke alarms. An ambitious study released last year shows lack of smoke alarms is a huge problem in Surrey. The report, titled Residential Fires in Surrey B.C. 1988 to 2007, focuses on 3,594 fires that occurred over the last two decades, almost 90 per cent of which were in residential buildings. The study finds homeowners are failing to take recommended action by installing smoke alarms. About two-thirds of homes that caught fire had smoke alarms installed, but half of them were not functional. The new law requires that smoke alarms be maintained in proper working order. “It’s the property owners’ responsibility to do so,” Garis said last week. “If you could do one thing for me, test your smoke alarm. And if it doesn’t work, replace it. And if you don’t have the means, give us a call and we’ll replace it for free. It just doesn’t

If your smoke alarm is sounding nuisance alarms, try relocating it farther from kitchens or bathrooms. • Regularly vacuum or dust your smoke alarms. • Replace alarms every 10 years. • Plan regular fire drills to ensure that everyone knows exactly what

to do when the smoke alarm sounds. Hold a drill at night; studies have shown that some children may not awaken at the sound of the smoke alarm. • Invite the Surrey Fire Service to conduct a home-safety inspection of your residence. As part of the HomeSafe Program, Surrey Fire Service will do a non-code compliant fire-safety check of your home. If there is no smoke alarm present, the program installs a free, battery-operated smoke alarm. For information on the new smoke alarm regulation, contact the Surrey Fire Service Prevention Branch at 604-543-6780.

editorial

Enforcement key to eliminate hate n B.C. Supreme Court Friday, Justice Joel Groves ruled a 2008 attack on South Surrey’s Jordan Smith was a hate crime. The label fits. Smith, 28, is openly gay. He was heckled then attacked, his jaw broken, as he walked handin-hand with his boyfriend in Vancouver’s West End. It was an inexcusable assault – unprovoked, brutal and, based on the evidence presented in court, driven by hate. In times when doubt as to the effectiveness of our justice system is voiced publicly more often than not, it is refreshing to be able to say, this time, they got it right. Smith’s attacker Michael Kandola insisted in a statement read in court that he did not and never has discriminated against gay people. But actions speak louder than words, and in this respect, Kandola’s words fall resoundingly hollow. For the courts to have determined Kandola’s actions were anything but motivated by hate would do a disservice to society and all those who have had to fight for a right that should have always been theirs: the right to be accepted and treated – and protected – like everybody else. On its front, a hate crime may directly impact just one person. But its underlying intention extends much farther, to hurt or terrify all those who fall into the same group of people as the victim. Bill C-250, proposed by NDP MP Svend Robinson – Canada’s first openly gay member of Parliament – in 2004, added sexual orientation to the list of identifiable groups afforded protection from hate crimes under the Criminal Code, which also provides for harsher sentences should it be determined a crime is motivated by hate. Just as police officers who cross the line by committing a crime must be held to a higher standard and punished accordingly, those who feel another’s race, religion or sexual orientation are reason enough to inflict harm must be shown in no uncertain terms such actions won’t be tolerated. Groves, in sentencing Kandola, said, “Canada is a free, inclusive, tolerant society.” His ruling on Kandola’s actions, described by some as a landmark decision, has put those who believe individuals who belong to demographics other than their own are inferior – and choose to inflict harm based on those beliefs – on notice. There will be consequences.

The Site C dam on the Peace, new power lines to supply the mining and gas industries in B.C.’s remote northwest and northeast and a series of BC Hydro power-purchase contracts with private suppliers will all be excluded from scrutiny by the B.C. Utilities Commission. NDP energy critic John Horgan says this will mean the government will require BC Hydro to pay enough to make massive projects such as the Bute Inlet run-of-river complex and an offshore wind farm off Haida Gwaii viable. Private projects will get a subsidy from regular folks, and Powerex, Hydro’s export division, will turn into a sales force for the barons of private power, Horgan predicts. Energy Minister Blair Lekstrom is emphatic in response. Export contracts will have to be worked out first, and then BC Hydro will purchase power only at rates that it can justify through export returns. The B.C. Utilities Commission retains authority over domestic electricity rates, and that will protect B.C. residents from subsidizing exports, Lekstrom says. That will be easier said than done, and it depends on places like California being prepared to pay handsomely for clean, reliable energy. One thing is certain. Offshore wind towers will be an easier sell than drill platforms in the years ahead. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press.

Problems over off-leash dogs Editor: Re: ‘It could have been a baby,’ April 21. Reading your article about the family pet that was killed was heartbreaking. I feel so badly for Helen Koch and her daughters, and I really do know just how she feels having experienced something similar about two years ago. You truly do not realize how quickly things like this can happen and you can’t believe it is happening. Though it doesn’t feel like it now,

in time – and with the support of family and friends – it will get easier and the good memories overtake the bad. Talking about it helps. And take as long as you need; everyone heals at different speeds. To the owner of the other dog: You chose to let your dog be offleash on a city street. How you thought a big dog grabbing and shaking a tiny dog would do no harm is beyond me. Take responsibility for your dog’s actions and at least pay for poor little Coco’s cremation. It doesn’t change things but it shows at least you care and are trying to be responsible for your actions. I disagree with anyone walking a dog off-leash on any city street anywhere, and I don’t care how

much control you feel you have over your dog. Take it to an off-leash park or leave it at home to run in its own yard. Judy Evans, Surrey Q Re: Not leashing can lead to tragedy, April 28 letters. First let me say, there are large dogs and there are small, lap-type dogs. Big difference! Small dogs are seldom the problem. That is not the reason for my letter. The editor’s note at the end of the April 28 letters states the addresses of two off-leash areas for dogs. If you notice, these two areas – 13400 block 20 Avenue and Blackie Spit at Crescent Beach – are a considerable distance from

the South Surrey/White Rock area where many seniors and their dogs live. They are also overrun with larger-breed dogs, which tend to intimidate small dogs. Can you imagine an older person with a walker trying to take their dog to one of these off-leash parks? Not everyone, particularly seniors, has the option to hop in the car and travel a fair distance to one of these parks, which just happen to be in the wealthier part of town where most people would likely own a car. Maybe it’s time the councils consider an area in South Surrey/ White Rock area to accommodate smaller-breed dogs. They all need exercise. James Haughton, Surrey

The success or otherwise of any business is entirely the responsibility of the owner of that business.a Kenneth J. Eadie

The price of pay parking Editor: Re: ‘Poor response’ stalls free parking, April 28. As a business owner and a homeowner in the City of White Rock, I was very disappointed by the decision by council to not allow free parking to be extended for the off season. If I am completely honest, I was totally offended by some of their remarks in the Peace Arch News article. I cannot speak for the other merchants who did not fill out the information, as I had just opened my business on the waterfront and I could not provide data to the city. If we lose free parking during the off season, we will see businesses close out. I cannot get my friends to relocate their shops here. My business coach wanted me to go to Fort Langley, but I live here and wanted to invest my money here. Was I wrong? It looks like I was. Customers who live in White Rock want to know why there are not more little shops like Angelic Teapot here. I do not have the answer. My question to this current council is the following: what are you each doing to attract more business to White Rock to keep the citizens, including myself, a voter, happy? Maureen Coroliuc, Angelic Teapot, White Rock Q I have a response regarding the article, which pointed out only 11 of 82 businesses responded to a particular city survey, and of those only a handful provided the full information requested. I dropped off the forms at city hall, but I was not prepared to detail financial information. I tried to explain why to the gentleman who came by the store to remind us. In a nutshell, it is irrelevant information to the issue at hand. The main issue, in my opinion, is that establishing pay parking during winter months solves no existing problem, and thus can only be seen as a money grab. When sources of income were considered in the past to fund improvements and maintenance, establishing waterfront pay parking in the summer made sense. Year after year, Marine Drive was becoming more congested with people driving to the waterfront to enjoy the natural beauty of the beach and the shops next to it. Summer congestion was a problem, and pay parking was a solution. But the problem of congestion in the winter months was simply a non-issue. Whether this was an oversight by the council that voted in year-round pay parking, or a deliberate decision to pad the city purse, I don’t know; nor do I care. What is important is that pay parking in the winter solves no problem, yet creates a big one. Business owners know the bulk of their revenue comes in during the four to five months of nice,

File photo

White Rock council rejected free winter waterfront parking last week after few answered its survey. warm weather. Those who remain open during the fall and winter do so knowing revenue will significantly decrease during this time, but choose to stay open to serve more local people. But without visitors coming down to the beach area, too, it just isn’t practical to put up the cost of opening during the winter. And having to pay for parking is virtually the only reason people will stay away – the only reason that can be eliminated, that is. The idea that this is a “data-driven decision” only serves to demonstrate the ignorance on council. What data did they use in their decision to bring in pay parking during winter months in the first place? It sure wasn’t a public survey! You want data? Check out the diminishing revenue of pay parking during winter months. The idea that discontinuing winter pay parking is like spending “an estimated $92,000” fails to acknowledge money collected in past years from pay parking was money people did not know they had to spend until they arrived at the beach. Think about it; if people, upon their arrival, see they must pay for parking, they may stay, but will think twice the next time they consider an outing to the beach in winter, and will go elsewhere. And there are plenty of “elsewheres” to consider: Crescent Beach, Sunnyside Park, Fort Langley, Steveston, to name some. If White Rock council wants to prevent the city’s most popular attraction from becoming a winter ghost-town, they know what to do. Jeffrey Street, Booster Juice, White Rock

Not the city’s responsibility I read with disbelief that whilst council was again offering to subsidize businesses on the waterfront with White Rock residents’ tax dollars, these same businesses could not then be bothered responding to the city survey. This is the same council whom has no qualms about balancing budgets and reducing costs by removing our fire department and other essential services. (Editor’s note: White Rock is undergoing a core-services review that includes

considering contracting fire services from Surrey.) It is finally time to draw a line in the sand with regard to the “benefits” which these businesses actually provide to our city. If the success or failure of White Rock is dependent upon the presence of some of these businesses on the waterfront, then pity help us. I read much about the squabbling within the Business Improvement Association over recent months and wondered what this organization actually does. One only has to walk along Marine Drive to see that whilst not all but many of these business owners cannot even be bothered to clean their windows, renew awnings and signage or remove weeds from in front of their property – this in addition to the type of product carried and in some, the aged stock on display. As a business owner with interests in a number of other municipalities – unfortunately, our type of service is not applicable here – I would never lay blame or demand subsidies for my failure to operate a successful business, more so when the blame is placed on the weather or season. All of these variables were already well documented and should have been taken into account before considering opening a business in a small, seasonal town. The success or otherwise of any business is entirely the responsibility of the owner of that business. It is the most important component of their business plan, prior to setting up that venture, to first identify whether a profitable market actually exists for their product. In future, the city’s responsibilities should not include seeking ways to improve the profitability of these few businesses, but should instead allocate any funds which they had intended to provide subsidies to address issues which will add value and attract additional visitors to our city, including providing a number of locations with steps from the promenade over the rocks to access the beach; promenade lighting on West Beach; highway signage and possibly a boat launch ramp, with revenue shared with BNSF.

news 500 pot plants Police investigating the theft of electricity found a marijuana grow-op in a White Rock home Thursday. Const. Janelle Canning said officers acting on a search warrant entered the two-storey house in the 14700-block of Upper Roper Avenue just after 8 p.m. April 29. They seized approximately 500 marijuna plants. No one was home at the time. Investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to contact Const. Amanda Galenzoski at 778-593-3640.

Gas leak A damaged service line caused a gas leak in the area of Buena Vista Avenue and Oxford Street just after 3 p.m. last Wednesday. A contractor on site was digging a trench and broke a small line, according to fire Chief Phil Lemire. Terasen Gas was notified by the fire department and had the leak under control by 3:40 p.m., said spokesperson Kirsten Walker, who called the incident “minor.” The public should take safety precautions before digging around their home, she added. “We always advise the public to call before you dig.”

Veteran tribute Boaz Joseph

T

Black Press

he Peace Arch Zone of the Royal Canadian Legion paid tribute to the sacrifices of Canadian veterans with a candlelight ceremony at Victory Memorial Park Cemetery on Saturday evening. About 2,500 candles were placed by the gravestones by veterans, families, legion members, RCMP and cadets at the South Surrey cemetery. The ceremony was held during the week of the 65th anniversary of VE Day, the day of Victory in Europe at the end of the Second World War in 1945. The practice of placing candles on the gravestones of Canadian soldiers was adopted from the similar honours to Canadians given by schoolchildren in

the Dutch town of Holten. The ceremony included a march by the colour guard, the singing of O Canada and a fly-past by three vintage airplanes. The Peace Arch Zone of the Royal Canadian Legion comprises legion branches in Cloverdale, Crescent Beach, Ladner, Richmond, Tsawwassen, Whalley and White Rock. The event included the participation of more than a dozen 151 Cormorant Navy League Cadets, which are based in Green Timbers Park, and the Crescent Beach Pipe Band. More than 45,000 Canadian soldiers and seamen died during the Second World War and nearly 65,000 died in the First World War. More than 500 died during the Korean War and more than 140 have died in Afghanistan.

Eat, Drink and Give: Dinner + Drink for $25 was held May 2 at the 12822 16 Ave. establishment, and featured a dinner and wine-basket raffle. Ten per cent of Darmanin’s – and the Britney Darmanin 32 other delegates’ – overall score in the Miss World Canada competition will be based on how much money she raises for Variety, which supports children with special needs and their families. Last month, Darmanin held a bachelorette/bachelor auction at Ryerson University – where she is studying – raising more than $3,000 for the cause.

When Michael Sabourin was 10 years old, his mom brought home lemon tarts and Sabourin decided to make the meringue. It’s one of his earlier memories that hinted of a career in cooking, a path he’s now committed to with a passion and work ethic not often come by. “Basically, when I was younger I wanted to own my dad’s music store when he retired,” says Sabourin. “Then I realized he’s probably never going to retire.” His dad still hasn’t, so it’s a good thing Sabourin – now 20 – sought out his own niche. While attending Elgin Park Secondary in South Surrey, Sabourin learned of a culinary co-op through Semiahmoo Secondary. ❝I wanted to own He signed on and was my dad’s music required to find work experience. Not wanting to intern store when he at just any restaurant, he retired. Then discovered La Belle Auberge I realized he’s chef Bruno Marti menprobably never tors young chefs and summoned the courage to go to going to retire.❞ the renowned Ladner chef ’s Michael Sabourin kitchen. Even after his work experience period was over, he would show up hoping to learn. “(Chef) Tobias (MacDonald) would yell out, ‘If you can lean you can clean’,” recalls Sabourin with a smile. “I would do that (clean) just to be there.” On Valentine’s Day in Grade 12, Sabourin was hired on to work after school. He helped MacDonald train for the 2008 Culinary Olympics in Germany, where the B.C. culinary team placed fifth out of 32, and began entering competitions himself. Last May he won gold for his cold show entry at Eat! Vancouver.

Elgin Park grad Michael Sabourin is a culinary arts apprentice at Vancouver Community College. The Vancouver Community College culinary arts apprentice is currently helping the VCC team train for a competition which will determine the youth Canada culinary team for the 2012 Culinary Olympics. If the VCC team wins, Sabourin could be placed on the youth Canada team. In his spare time, he has offered to work for free at a Japanese restaurant in South Surrey to learn the art of making sushi. One of his dreams is to open a Western restaurant in Japan.

lifestyles Earl Marriott fundraiser aims to bring in $6,000

Plant sale supports grad Earl Marriott Secondary is gearing up for its third and final Dry Grad fundraiser this year – the annual Plant Sale – in hopes the event will bring in around $6,000 for graduation festivities. An assortment of bedding plants, herbs, vegetables, hanging baskets, manure and soil will be available in the school parking lot from 9 a.m.to 3 p.m. May 8, accompanied by a concession, 50/50 draw and car wash. The money will go towards food and activities for Dry Grad – scheduled for May 29 at the Tong Louie Family YMCA – such as a photo booth, obstacle courses, pizza and refreshments. Having already held a pasta night in November and fashion show in March, the school aims to raise a total of $20,000 for the event. To donate plants to the sale, or for more information, call the school at 604-531-8354.

Plans continue to grow for Ocean Park Day – every year I tell you that it’s getting bigger and better and every year it’s true. Be sure to set aside Saturday, June 19, 2010, to join the Ocean Park Business Association in celebrating this unique neighborhood with local businesses and community groups. Look for terrific store specials and sales along with free food samplings, displays, entertainers and events for kids, both the young and the young at heart. An exciting new event this year in addition to the Trade Fair at the Ocean Park Community Hall will be the Rock Climbing Wall courtesy of the Ocean Park Community Association set in the parking lot south of the Hall. The South Surrey Kiwanis Club will be running their BBQ there to feed hungry climbers and shoppers alike. You’ll see familiar favourites like Korky the Clown and Mr. Bubbles, the dunk-tank at Starbucks, the Antique and Specialty Auto Show, the spectacular Raffle Basket tent, JJ+Whiskey’s Billabong tent, music at Melange and play time at Cotton’N’Crayon as they celebrate their 25th Anniversary with Calico Critters and Crocs. The stage set up in the Safeway parking lot is courtesy of Safeway, BMO, Coast Capital, Royal Bank and Avenir Group. Janice Savage of Beyond Scarlett Arts & Entertainment tells me applications for performers on Ocean Park Day can apply to her at info@beyondscarlett.com. Speaking of entertainers, Ocean Park Pizza and Village Pub will host the popular 2nd Annual Ocean Park Idol on Sunday, June 6, 2010 starting at 7pm. All ages and musical genres are welcome to apply to info@beyondscarlett.com for that special evening. One of the major prizes will be the opportunity to take centre stage on Ocean Park Day as featured entertainer.

• VISION TESTING • ON-SITE OPTICAL LAB • DESIGNER BRANDS

Another exciting program being introduced on Ocean Park Day by the South Surrey Kiwanis is the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. Children between the ages of 0 and 5 years of age can be registered to receive one storybook per month by mail absolutely free. Watch for more information and plan to visit the Kiwanis registration booth. In addition to sponsoring the Climbing Wall for Ocean Park Day, the Community Association has also been busy working with the City of Surrey to introduce bird nesting boxes at the newly established Kwomais Park. There will be more news soon regarding nature walks and the Grand Opening of this natural jewel right here in Ocean Park.

There’s a new sun setting along Marine Drive. Its rays aren’t glowing a brilliant orange hue, and sunglasses aren’t required to enjoy it. But it is spreading a glow, and those behind it hope it will add new warmth to the community. “Just sort of bring the culture to the area, a little more recognition that it is Semiahmoo land,” Const. Troy Derrick explained of the mural gracing the bandshell at Semiahmoo Park. And, “it’s hoped to keep the graffiti off there altogether.” Designed by First Nations artist Leonard Wells and painted on the bandshell by Semiahmoo First Nation’s Jamie Charles and Wells’ daughter, Samantha, the redand-black sunset faces east, greeting motorists westbound in the 15800-block of Marine Drive. Supported by the RCMP, the project was about 18 months in the making. In explaining the sunset design, Wells, 22, said only that she asked her father for “something simple” that would hopefully deter those who have been tagging the bandshell with vulgar words and other graffiti. Derrick, who was involved in the hiphop culture before becoming a police officer, hopes the idea will catch on as an artistic solution to the “toy tagging” that is sullying the face of the community and costing business owners thousands in clean-up costs. Real artists respect the work of their peers, he said. The initiative is also an opportunity to encourage taggers who have talent to put it to good use rather than towards a criminal record. “Taking the ones who have some talent

GOLF

New pro thrilled to be on board at Peace Portal Longtime golfer Mark Forrest plans to expand teaching, juniors membership at South Surrey course

S

pring is well underway, and so is the golf season at South Surrey’s Peace Portal Golf Club. The staff has been hard at work prepping the 18-hole par 72 course for a busy season, and the club’s new head pro, Mark Forrest, is looking forward to his first summer at the popular course. The 30-year CPGA member, recently recognized for 25 years as a Class A member, joined the team at Peace Portal in January, after spending 17 years as director of golf at Williams Lake Golf Club, followed by a stint at Chilliwack Golf and Country Club. Forrest – who describes himself as a “traditional golf pro” – said he had been hoping for a chance to get back into the Lower Mainland, and when the opportunity presented itself, he jumped on it. “It’s a great golf course – one of the best in the province,” Forrest said. “It’s such a historic golf course, being here since 1928 and it’s such a beautiful piece of property.” While the tall trees, lush fairway and pristine greens make for a

scenic, picturesque game of golf, Forrest said the course is also nice and challenging, with the first nine holes a staunch test of endurance and the back nine prominently featuring water. “As a player, it’s a great course to improve your game, with elevation changes, tight fairways and good greens,” he said. With Forrest on board, Peace Portal plans to expand its teaching program, and will be offering everything from group lessons to individual, one-on-one training. Expect to see a more diverse range of merchandise in the pro shop, too, as the club expects to carry three price points on almost all products, so there is something affordable for everyone. Forrest and Associate Pro Paul Boucher are also ramping up Peace Portal’s Junior Membership this summer, for young golfers aged 12 to 18 looking to improve their game. “It’s basically an introductory junior program to get kids going once they’ve decided they’re a little too big for the Par 3,” Boucher explained. “They’ll gain some experience as far as playing

tournaments, they’ll also get good information as far as lessons and clinics as well.” The program – which starts Tuesday, May 11 and runs weekly through August – features a number of clinics, lessons and monthly tournaments designed to take young players to the next level with their golf game. Clinics will focus on various specific aspects of the game – putting, chipping, full swing – and all the tournaments in the juniors programs are based on net play. Junior Memberships are available now – call 604-538-4818 for more information. Forrest said he’s looking forward to focusing on Peace Portal’s teaching program, with years of teaching under his belt from beginners to Canadian amateur champions. “We’ve got the ideal facilities for these programs, with the Par 3 tacked on,” he said. Forrest welcomes golfers of all levels to visit Peace Portal this spring and summer and see what makes it one of the most popular golf destinations in the Lower Mainland. He said you’re likely to find him where he loves to be most – on the course working on his game. “I’m going to be out playing with the membership and the paying public.”

Get a quick round in at Par 3 From golfers who are new to the game to advanced players wanting to sharpen their short games, the Peace Portal Par 3 is the perfect 9-hole course in South Surrey. Carved into a setting of beautiful mature cedars, the course, first opened in 1993, takes the golfer up and down a gentle and scenic ridge. According to course manager Maxine Hamm, the Par 3 is a great venue for both less experienced golfers and those looking to improve their short games. Though the course is relatively short – at approximately 100 yards per hole – two small lakes provide an extra challenge. “It is a special pleasure to see kids as young as five years old teeing off on the first hole and watching the excitement

they experience as they hit it down the fairway,” Hamm said, adding that the course also serves the perfect venue for company golf events. For brand new golfers, Hamm suggests a trip to the driving range beforehand so players are able to get the ball airborne. “If you have never hit a ball before, it can be frustrating and discouraging,” she said. Though the Par 3 does not reserve tee times, Hamm recommends calling ahead to 604-538-1892 to see how busy the course is. Green fees for 2010 are weekday, nine holes for $13, 18 holes for $20; weekend nine holes $15, 18 holes for $24. On weekend mornings, early birds get $5 off their regular green fee, but must tee off before 10 a.m.

Subtracting, not adding? Metro’s plan envisions a 500,000-tonne-per-year incinerator, nearly twice the size of the existing one, using newer European-style wet scrubbing technology that reduces measurable emissions. For fine particulate, Metro consultants – using emission rates from a more modern burner in Sweden that Metro’s new incinerator would be modelled after – forecast such a plant would emit 4.6 tonnes per year. Metro estimates the avoided emissions through district heating would reduce the net fine particulate emissions to -2.4 tonnes per year – the air would be cleaner by that measure

than if the incinerator is not built. The Burnaby incinerator releases about seven tonnes of fine particulate a year, which Metro counts as a net release of four tonnes after the paper mill’s avoided emissions are considered. Metro calculates the avoided emissions from district heating would also make the new incinerator’s net release of nitrogen oxides (NOX) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) a net subtraction rather than an addition – although 7.5 tonnes of ammonia would be added to the air because it’s injected into the wet-scrubbing system. Dr. Ian McKendry, a UBC atmospheric scientist who penned a report for the Fraser Valley Regional District, conceded Metro may be partly right about avoided emissions. But he recommended against building an incinerator – or any other new sources – that might add contaminants to the unique airshed, which funnels and concentrates pollutants not just from Metro Vancouver but also northwestern Washington state. McKendry said Metro also treats the emissions as if they can be spread uniformly across the Lower Mainland, when the reality is they will be concentrated wherever smoke blows. “You can have very, very high impacts locally,” he said, particularly within 10 kilometres.

Health concerns, toxins at top of trash-incinerator debate  from page 343 whether they’ll be stricken by cancer and other illness triggered by the assortment of toxins emitted from burning garbage. “The fundamental issue here is the discomfort people have with the toxic substances that are emitted from these things,” McKendry said. Dioxins and furans are highly toxic and persistent, so they can bio-accumulate in the food chain and, ultimately, human bodies. They’re created

mainly from burning PVC vinyl. They, along with metals like mercury and cadmium, can cause various cancers and birth defects. Soil and plant tests carried out for two years before and after the Burnaby incinerator was built detected higher readings of some metals like cadmium at test sites in Richmond, North Delta and Burnaby, and fluoride in some blueberry and cranberry crops. Researchers concluded there was no

evidence directly linking the incinerator to the soil contaminants, which were within regulatory levels. The stack tests show the existing Metro incinerator emits about 1.5 milligrams of dioxins and furans per year and 2.6 kilograms of mercury. Metro says a detailed assessment of possible contamination and health risks would come, if the plan is approved, when a specific project is identified and undergoes an assessment.

gist Dr. Vyvyan Howard is concerned about contaminants from incinerators that can’t presently be measured. Howard is a leading researcher in the emerging field of nanoparticles – extremely fine particulate less than a thousandth the width of a human hair. Too little is known yet about their health impacts, said Howard, who urges authorities to err on the side

of caution and reject incineration. Food crops are at particular risk, he said. The Fraser Valley, one of Canada’s most productive tracts of arable farmland, would be directly downwind. “These compounds, once they get into any ecosystem, are going to come back to us via our food.” Next in the series: Dumping at Cache Creek

– music was his life. That was my uncle’s story,” Ostroff said. The play, which started with Ostroff wondering what happened to Eli after the loss of Anton, has taken three years, plus workshopping and a lot of constructive criticism, to bring to the stage, he said. It was actor Dennis Cattrall, who played Anton, who suggested that Eli encounter a young person, Ostroff said.

Joseph at WRC Don’t look for many students in the audience of White Rock Christian Academy’s version of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, the Andrew Lloyd Webber-Tim Rice perennial, which runs Thursday, May 6 at noon and 7 p.m. and Friday, May 7 at 7 p.m. only in the school’s gymnasium, 2265 152 St. That’s because most of the school population – more than 400 students from kindergarten to Grade 12 – is on stage for the mega-production, directed by school choral director Sarona Mynhardt, with assistance from her choreographer (and daughter) Maderi, accompanist Janet Rendell, costumer Jo-Anne Beers and elementary music teacher Gord McLeod. Prominent in the cast is the school’s highly ranked basketball squad – including captain Eli Mara (as Ruben) – most of whom are building on their own team spirit for bravura performances as the rambunctious and resentful brothers who torment and betray Joseph (Sun Kwon Song) and sell him into slavery in an Egypt ruled by a flamboyant Pharaoh (Travis Rea). Music – either band or choral – is mandatory at the academy after Grade 8, and, away from the hoop scene, the boys basketball team has turned into an excellent choir whose members always show up punctually for their early Thursday morning practices. “I’ve always wanted to direct a boys choir, all my life, and this is a great group of guys,” Mynhardt, who also coaches sports, said. “And music is also good for rhythm and developing athletic skills.” Tickets are available from the school office at 604-531-9186.

Call for artists Fine art will soon be on display at the White Rock Community Centre, 15154 Russell Ave. (Miramar Village), with the May 8 deadline fast approaching for submissions for a first themed exhibit which will run in the centre’s gallery room from May 22 through June 19. Spring Flowers, guest-curated by Lisa Strimbicki, and selected by a jury committee, marks the first collaboration in an ongoing partnership between Leisure Services and the Community Arts Council of White Rock and District. “We’ve always wanted to have art on display in the community centre,” said community-recreation co-ordinator Janna Nicholson. “Leisure Services felt a great partner for this would be the Community Arts Council, because they have the expertise and are in touch with the arts community.” CAC director Patrick Reynolds said the collaboration provides “a wonderful opportunity to do something we haven’t been able to do – something that feels more community-based. “My goal right now for the arts council is to get out into the community and form partnerships.” Submissions should be two-dimensional art with a “spring flowers” theme – which can include paintings, drawings,

Runaways Crescent Beach playwright Harvey E. Ostroff’s new play, Runaways, starring noted actor Richard Newman and his daughter Sofia, continues May 5-8, 8 p.m., and May 9, 3 p.m. at Vancouver’s Havana Theatre, 1212 Commercial Dr. It’s a follow up to Ostroff ’s witty Two Old Guys Sitting On A Bench Talking About This and That (also known as The Viagra Diatribes) featured in the Vancouver Fringe Festival and in a successful run at Playwright’s Theatre Centre.

Ongoing Weekly Events

The long-time drama educator and director continues to follow the story of Eli Golden (Newman), an 85-year-old man incapable of living by himself but unwilling to accept the loss of freedom that comes with eldercare. On the bench where he used to meet his late friend Anton, Golden encounters a 14-year-old girl, Pan Wonder (Sofia Newman), who is living on the streets and, while afraid of life among the homeless, is unable to go home. The play focuses on their unlikely relationship, which starts as a struggle for the bench – a symbolic home and haven for each of them – but becomes something much more profound. For Ostroff, the play continues themes that have always been present in his work, starting with his first play, Yossel’s Music, in 1983. “That was about a 94-year-old man who was moved into a seniors home and everything changed. He’d played the violin

Locally-based jazz/funk/groove specialists the Star Captains will play an all-ages show at the Vogue Theatre, 918 Granville St., May 7 at 8 p.m. as opening act for the Fox Seedswinning rock band Goodbye Beatdown. Guitarists Jim Black and Gavin Youngash, bassist Nimish Parekh, drummer Dan Klenner, keyboardist Max Zipursky and new member David Mergins (synth and sax) will be joined by percussionists from Five Alarm Funk, for the prestigious show. The connection between the two bands is White Rock’s Tapestry Music, where both Black and Goodbye Beatdown guitarist Royce Whittaker work. “Royce is an amazing guitar player, almost a prodigy,” said Black. “He’s a fan of our group and we talk shop at work. They’re in a pop world but they want people to know they’re a players’ band. I think that they wanted us on the bill to show that they’re about the music.” The Star Captains have become increasingly focused on putting on a show, both literally and figuratively, Black added. “We’ve been putting them on ourselves at places like the ANZA Club and the Media Club, and the last half dozen shows we’ve played have sold out. I think we can bring some fans out now.” For samples of the Star Captains sound, visit www.starcaptains.com Tickets are $15 in advance, available from 778-549-3747 or by emailing jimblackmusic@gmail.com

In a pre-Mother’s Day concert showcasing her musical side, Bollard will be joined by fellow jazz diva Laura Crema, and Brandon Isaak, one of Canada’s foremost blues musicians, with stellar back-up band Jodi Proznick (bass), Tilden Webb (keys) and Jesse Cahill (drums). “I am really looking forward to making music with some of Vancouver’s finest musicians,” Bollard said. “Laura Crema is one of my favourite jazz singers and Brandon is such a fantastic showman, I know this is going to be a great night of entertainment.” Tickets ($22) are available from 604536-7535, www.whiterockplayers.ca or by emailing wrpctix@uniserve.com

Sports Reporter

or the first time in 15 years, the Earl Marriott Mariners’ senior boys rugby team finds itself in an unfamiliar position – that of defending Sandcastle Cup champions. And now comes the hard part – keeping the title, which they’ll put on the line 3 p.m. Thursday at Semiahmoo Secondary. EMS finds itself in a position to defend after last year’s 54-0 drubbing of their crosstown rival Semiahmoo Totems, which broke Semi’s run of 15 straight wins in the annual grudge match. “This is the first time our guys have ever had to defend anything, so it’ll be interesting to see how they (react),” said Mariners coach Adam Roberts, a Semiahmoo grad who won the Sandcastle Cup with Semi in the late ’90s. “I think we’ll play well.

Yale is also one of the few teams to knock off the Totems, who were in something of a rebuilding mode last year. Regardless of the two teams’ records, it won’t take much for the adrenaline to flow Thursday. “You always get pumped up for it, no matter what year it is and what each team’s record is,” Roberts said. Motivation certainly won’t be a factor for the Totems, who’ll be looking to return the trophy to the school after a year away. “This year, this is the game that really means everything to us because we lost it last year,” said Semiahmoo coach Tom Wilson. “It belongs in our trophy case, and we definitely want it back.” While last year’s shutout loss still stings, Wilson expects a much closer contest this time around, now that his charges have an

extra year of experience under their belts. “Last year, the outcome was never really in question, but this year we know it’ll be closer,” said Wilson, who has five Grade 12 players on this year’s roster, led by captain Neil McLagan. “We’re very athletic; maybe not the biggest team out there, but we make up for it with a lot of heart. We’re ready to play this time – we’ll make a game of it.” In order to wrest the cup back from their rivals’ hands, the Totems will have to contend with a veteran EMS group which, though they’ve lost a slew of graduating players from last year’s winning team, still boasts an impressive array of talent, led by Grade 11 Connor Golden and Dan Lee, and captain Steve Bouchard, whom Roberts called “maybe the best high schpp; rugby player in the province.” “That’s my own bias, of course, but he’s just having a standout year,” Roberts said of his captain.

sports James Neil drafted by Seattle in third round of WHL draft

Sharks’ season ends Raven plucked by T-Birds with loss to Capilano Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

James Neil swapped one bird for another last Thursday, when the Semiahmoo Ravens’ bantam A forward was selected by the Seattle Thunderbirds in the third round of the Western Hockey League’s annual bantam draft. The six-foot, 165-pound forward was “a shoo-in” to get drafted, according to his coach. “With his size and skill, we definitely knew (he’d get picked),” said Bill MacGillivray. “Actually, I really think Seattle got a bit of a sleeper, because I’m surprised he didn’t go higher; if James had been picked high in the first round, I wouldn’t have batted an eye.” Neil was in school when his named was called, and got the news from classmates who had been following the draft on their iPhones. “I got a couple text messages, and that’s when I found out,” he said. Neil was thrilled to go to Seattle, and had an inkling beforehand that it was a place he may

Nick Greenizan Sports Reporter

The season is over for the Bayside Sharks, after a disheartening 47-25 loss to Capilano in CDI Premier Rugby League quarter-finals Saturday in North Vancouver. Capilano jumped out to early lead, and was up 26-10 by the 25th minute, with Bayside’s scoring coming from a Chris Pack penalty kick and Brodie Henderson try. “It was a tough game. Capilano basically, in the first 20 minutes, had a strong game plan and executed it, and really jumped on us,” said Bayside coach David Benoit. The Sharks didn’t have an answer for the Caps’ kicking game, Benoit added. The Sharks gave the Capilano standoff too much time to kick the ball, the coach said, which meant every kick was placed perfectly and often recovered by the kicking team. “Their tactical kicking was great and their kick-chasing was incredible,” he said. “They put their kicks exactly where they wanted to, and it really set us back early in the game, and we never really recovered. “The rest of the game was actually

fairly boring – most of the (damage) was in those first minutes.” Bayside, which trailed 33-13 at halftime, got two tries from Mark Irvine, with both coming in the second half. An influx of injuries to the Sharks’ top players also made it tough for the Peninsula side to keep pace with the highly skilled Caps. Matt Miles played the game with a broken toe and a herniated disc in his back; Eric Sugawara played with a hip flexor injury; and Neil Kinskofer suited up despite a separated shoulder he suffered a week earlier. “Neil played the first half until he couldn’t go any longer,” Benoit said. “Injuries are never an excuse – I’m sure Capilano had some, too – because this time of year, everybody’s banged up, but we really limped into this one. We were banged up, and it showed.” The first divison Sharks did not fare any better than their premier teammates Saturday, losing their division quarter-final matchup 31-25 to the Vancouver Rowing Club. In third-division action, the Sharks also lost their first-round playoff tilt, 17-15 to Capilano.

The list is already long and impressive. And roughly 40 young players and almost 20 Major League Baseball (MLB) scouts are hoping to add to it. The B.C. Premier Baseball League has produced many professional players – including 2006 American League MVP Justin Morneau – and last Wednesday afternoon at Whalley Ball Park, the current crop of prospects was on display. “They’re trying to showcase themselves to the many big league guys that are here,� said Paul Hargreaves, general manager of the Fraser Valley Chiefs, the host of the 2010 MLB Scout Day. “These players could be on the radar with one team, but there are 18 teams represented here.� Attendance at the afternoon workout was by invitation only, with players participating in sprints, batting practice, infield drills and an exhibition game. Walt Burrows, MLB’s Canadian director of scouting, organized the day’s activities, and had a quick answer when asked who decides which players shall be invited. “Me,� he said with a laugh, adding he does consult with

At

least someone knows I’ve been working hard,� said Jeff Bouchard, one of several North Delta Blue Jays invited. “I’m just going out there and getting my hacks in, and hope they like what they see.� A trio of White Rock Tritons took part in the showcase – Keenan Chanin, Jeff Degano and Brandon Sonnenberg. “It puts them on the (scouts’) radar, which is always good,� said Tritons coach Brent Swan-

son. “And it’s good for the guys to get the chance. Confidence is half the battle in this game, so when you get the chance to go out and perform in front of scouts, it’s great. “Keenan, for one, has just been on fire ever since.� The PBL has produced several MLB players in the past decade, including Morneau (a former North Delta Blue Jay and New Westminster resident), pitcher and Surrey native Adam Loewen of the Whalley Chiefs (drafted fourth overall in the 2002 MLB draft), North Delta’s Jeff Francis (starting pitcher for the Colorado Rockies in the 2007 World Series), and pitcher Rich Harden of the Victoria Mariners (now with the Texas Rangers). And that list of talent helps bring the scouts back to B.C. “It’s known,� said Burrows of the province’s reputation of developing professional players. “You come up with Jeff Francis being the number one starter in the World Series, and Justin Morneau being an American League MVP, and Rich Harden and Jason Bay (of Trail). They’re all all-star players, and this is where they came from. “Major League Baseball, who I work for, and the teams that are here, are looking for other players like that.�
