Sports and culture belong together, says new minister

MLA Cadieux named to cabinet Alex Browne Staff Reporter

Stephanie Cadieux, B.C.’s new minister of community, sport and cultural development, said she’s enthusiastic about the potential of the portfolio. “I’m really excited,” the Surrey-Panorama MLA told Peace Arch News after being sworn in by

Lt.-Gov. Stephen Point in a ceremony Monday morning. “Although I’m a little overwhelmed in terms of getting up to date with files.” The appointment, part of a cabinet reshuffle announced by Premier Gordon Campbell, was not entirely unexpected, Cadieux said. “I had expressed an interest in it, but you don’t know what’s going to happen.”

Status of the two other local MLAs, Kevin Falcon (Surrey-Cloverdale) and Gordon Hogg (Surrey-White Rock) is unchanged – Falcon remains health minister, while Hogg remains without a portfolio since his last appointment as minister of state for mining.

While some opt to stroll through the streets of White Rock, others are a little more fleet-of-foot during the Peace Arch Hospital’s Pumpkin Run.

On an average day, it might be difficult to imagine what a miniature Superman, an oversized Elmo and a man in a tinsel-grass skirt have in common. But on Sunday, the answer was obvious – pumpkins. More specifically, a desire to support Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation, through participation in the Great Pumpkin Run/Walk. The fourth annual Halloweenthemed event brought an estimated 400 people – young, old and in-between, many in costume – out to pace one- and five-kilometre routes that wound through, down and up, up, up the streets of White Rock. � see page 2

Surrey considers allowing one secondary suite per home

Enforcing existing suite rules a first step: Bose Kevin Diakiw Black Press

Lack of adequate enforcement is at the heart of Surrey’s secondarysuite problem, according to one city councillor. “We do not, in my opinion, do an adequate job of bylaw enforcement,” Coun. Bob Bose said Monday. “The first step in all of this is to enforce your own zoning bylaws.” Surrey is currently developing a strategy to deal with secondary suites and is proposing to allow

one per home. Multiple said he purchased a home four months ago, near 188 suites, under the city’s proposed Housing Action Street and Highway 10. Plan, would be forbidden. He has one suite rented, As reported last week, but another area of the Black Press has learned home has electrical and plumbing in place for there are at least 4,000 homes with multiple suites another suite. in Surrey.

legal action will be taken. He says no other homes on his street have received similar letters. This is not surprising, according to Bose. “We’re enforcing our bylaws by complaint and complaint only,” he said. “And I think that’s inadequate.” Bose became concerned about the issue some time ago, and asked staff for an accounting of how many bylaw officers Surrey has and how the number compares to

other cities. A corporate report to council in March showed Surrey has 40 fulltime-equivalent bylaw officers, or one for every 11,600 residents in the city. Deputy city manager Dan Bottrill said at the time that the number is on par with other cities such as Burnaby, Richmond, Delta and Abbotsford. Bottrill gave some examples of what kept Surrey bylaw officers busy in 2009. � see page 2

This year’s Pumpkin Run attracted twice the number of participants as last year’s.

Pumpkin runners raise more � from page 1 The turnout was double that of the previous year, the foundation’s Febe GalvezVoth said. Parents, grandparents, children, seasoned athletes and those notching their first 5k all braved the elements for the cause, with most clearing the finish line and enjoying food samples, live music and camaraderie before the morning’s grey skies released the worst of the wet stuff. The event was also a success in terms of funds raised, Galvez-Voth said, noting an early estimate of $30,000 net is triple the donations collected last year. Organizers had hoped to raise at least $20,000 this year. The top team fundraiser was title sponsor HSBC Securities, which collected more than $6,000. Local real estate agent Geof Glazier topped the scales at the individual level, raising $1,170 for the cause. “While some people went home with prizes and incentives they earned through their fundraising, we are all winners because the event strengthens quality

health care in our community,” said the foundation’s Jackie Smith. Proceeds from the Great Pumpkin Run/ Walk will help fund hospital equipment, site redevelopment and priority health-care needs in the community.

Morgan run, too A five-kilometre run to benefit children with developmental disabilities takes place Sunday at Morgan Crossing. A first annual Halloween Fun Run – hosted by The Shops at Morgan Crossing and Peninsula Runners – will feature live entertainment and a shot at a $300 shopping spree, with the latter going to the participant with the best costume. “We’re hoping to get a good turnout for it,” said The Shops’ Karen Donald. “It’s for fun and it’s for charity.” Early registration is $12; race-day registration is $15. Group entries are $40. Registration may be done online at www. eventsonline.ca/events/halloween_5k/ For more information, call 604-808-7649.

Parking issues kept staff busy � from page 1 They include: parking infractions (files opened: 33,593; closed: 25,938); graffiti (files opened: 2,209; closed: 1,878); commercial vehicle inspections (files opened: 2,173; closed: 2,173); taxi inspections (files opened: 1,249; closed: 1,249); unsightly premises (files opened: 1,016; closed: 971); signage infractions (files opened: 425; closed: 420); drug houses identified (files opened: 228; closed: 194); soil removal/replacement (files opened: 168; closed: 163); and parking lot

inspections (files opened: 97; closed: 97). When Black Press requested the number of secondary suite files handled by bylaw inspectors, Bottrill said the figures were not immediately available. Surrey, the only city in the region without a secondary-suite-control bylaw, is attempting to draft workable legislation. City staff are working with focus groups to determine the best approach. They predict two more meetings will be necessary to bring forward a workable bylaw.

news City council asks federal government to review wireless regulations

Wi-Fi opponents laud White Rock’s plea Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Wi-Fi opponents celebrated progress in their fight Monday, following White Rock council’s decision to ask the federal government to review its use, safety guidelines and standards for wireless technologies. “It’s very noteworthy that this council has voted,” said Una St. Clair-Moniz, executive director of Citizens for Safe Technology, referring to support of a motion brought forward by Coun. Helen Fathers. “This is a council that has begun to educate themselves.” Citizens for Safe Technology first raised its concerns with the growing use of the largely unregulated technology in July, following

Johnson said she wears an aluminumfoil-lined hat to help reduce the impacts of her own electro-sensivity, and said the area around her home has become “so hot” that she has to find a new place to live. CST director Carl Katz will undergo surgery for a brain tumour on Nov. 8.

Breweries join vintner event

An affair to remember Alex Browne Staff Reporter

All the figures from this year’s Vintage Affair aren’t in yet. But Peace Arch News publisher and event organizer Linda Klitch said it’s clear Thursday’s gala – which, as in years past, benefits the White Rock South Surrey Community Foundation – was a success in a time when most fundraising efforts are still feeling the pinch of the recent economic downturn. “While overall attendance might have seemed to be down, it was actually up over last year, because we went to a larger venue,” she said. She noted Hazelmere Golf Club was chosen this year because the White Rock Community Centre – site of last year’s Vintage Affair – had proven too small to accomodate all the merchants and silentauction tables. “We had a lot of new contributors to the silent auction this year,” she added. In addition to the many wine distributors inviting tastings of their wares, this year’s Vintage Affair had a new feature – three local breweries, Big Ridge Brewery, Turning Point Brewing Company and Russell Beer,

Food items, the compèring of MC Mark Madryga, and musical entertainment were also well received, Klitch said. Music included a jazz combo from Semiahmoo Secondary featuring tenor saxist Alexandra Sandvoss, trumpeter Ania Zazycki, pianist Adrian Michael, guitarist Tanner Anslow, bassist Abby David and drummer Brian Shannon.

Perhaps the biggest stars of the evening were the people who went out of their way to demonstrate their support for the worthy projects funded by the foundation, she said. “We have the generosity of the community, and our volunteers are also exceptional,” Klitch said. “People are still contributing – the bottom line is that people are still doing their best to support the community and the foundation.”

Council endorses year-round valet service on beach Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Year-round valet parking on Marine Drive has received a thumbs-up from White Rock council. On Monday, councillors unanimously endorsed recommendations from the city’s economic development committee to expand the service, including approving the exclusive use of two Martin Street parking stalls, from 4:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. on weekdays and from 11:30 a.m. to 1 a.m. on weekends and holidays. In a report discussed at last week’s economic committee meeting, financial services director Sandra Kurylo notes the service “adds value and provides other options

Hugh Smith fosters valet service.

for waterfront visitors and employees.” It also fits with council’s sustainable city goal and the development of a long-term Parking Business Plan, she writes. Valet service on the waterfront was first piloted by restaurant

owner Matthew Hale in 2005. In 2007, council approved the program for Friday and Saturday nights, from May to September. Last May, the city endorsed a recommendation to green-light the service for seven-days-a-week until late October, and made available two parking spots on Martin Street near Victoria Avenue for the program. Statistics from the summer show 1,160 vehicles were valet-parked between June and September, with 78 per cent of users non-residents. In an appeal for the expansion, service co-operator Hugh Smith told council the program was “from all standpoints, a success.” “The valet seem to really service the overflow capacity,” Smith said.

“What the valet really is offering is taking those extra people that aren’t getting parked and getting them parked.” A move to the year-round program will enable the service to assist with Christmas parties, he said, while an earlier start on weekends is anticipated to benefit merchants. “We do want to spend more time to enhance the service,” Smith said. In future, Smith and Hale hope to add another location closer to the Boathouse restaurant, and to “green” the service by taking advantage of BC Hydro plans to install quick-charge stations for electric cars. They are also exploring a “value-added service,” looking at

a relationship with a local hotel that would enable the program to ensure patrons can access and arrive safely at overnight accommodation. Mayor Catherine Ferguson applauded Smith and Hale’s “creative and innovative thinking.” In supporting the expansion, council also endorsed a recommendation that offset funding of $7,500 come from the economic development budget. Kurylo’s report notes any negative impact on other pay-parking revenues, “is difficult to determine.” However, “As long as the price for this valet service reflects a premium compared to the city’s hourly rates, this is not anticipated to be a significant issue,” she writes.

Campbell shuffles the deck Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – Premier Gordon Campbell has made structural changes to the cabinet he says will help attract global investment to B.C.’s resource industries. Forests Minister Pat Bell has been given responsibility for mines, and former agriculture minister Steve Thomson is heading a new Ministry of Natural Resource Operations. Campbell said the cabinet reorganization is to help the economy, and is not an effort to restore his party’s sagging popularity. NDP leader Carole James said

the resource ministry moves are similar to 2002, when Campbell created a ministry of “sustainable resource management.” She said the appointment of Chilliwack MLA John Les as “parliamentary secretary for HST information” is an insult to taxpayers. Former ICBC president Paul Taylor was named to replace chief of staff Martyn Brown in the key strategic position in the premier’s office. Mines used to be under the energy ministry, but the expansion of power projects and natural gas boom mean that ministry has become larger.

Fort Langley-Aldergrove MLA Rich Coleman returns to the public safety-solicitor general position, taking responsibility for housing. Kamloops-South Thompson MLA Kevin Krueger takes over from Coleman as social development minister. Other changes include: Shuswap MLA George Abbott, education ministry; ChilliwackHope MLA Barry Penner, aboriginal relations; Saanich North MLA Murray Coell, environment; and Port Moody-Coquitlam MLA Iain Black, labour. Responsibility for small business is added to the finance ministry.

New name concerns arts groups � from page 1 cabinet Monday, noted her new ministry fuses elements of the former Healthy Living and Sport Ministry and Tourism, Culture and the Arts Ministry. “What I like about it is we’re now putting sports and culture together,” she said. “They’re two things that create community like nothing else – they can bridge different (national) cultures and different age groups.” Some arts advocacy groups, including Stop B.C. Arts Cuts, have already reacted to the announcement of the new ministry with skepticism, noting that while sport remains in the title, the word arts has been dropped. But Cadieux said sports and the arts don’t necessarily have to function in competition in terms of support and funding. “The Olympics is the best example I have of how well they fit together,” she said. “They’re both about people expressing themselves, about excellence, about

a creative approach to her new responsibilities. “There are all kinds of things running through my mind,” she said, although she acknowledged that the current demands of the blended portfolio will have to be dealt with first (she received her final briefing on the portfolio Tuesday). “To me, there’s a ton of opportunity to build on what’s already been done, and I’m looking forward to that.” In a statement welcoming Cadieux to the new portfolio, Union of B.C. Municipalities president and Surrey Coun. Barbara Steele said the new minister is “a hard worker who has made significant contributions as an advocate and community leader.” “I appreciate her grasp of the challenges facing communities,” Steele said. “I look forward to meeting with her in the coming days to discuss the priorities identified at UBCM’s recent convention.”

communities coming together in celebration. We’ll have to see what else we can come up with.” Cadieux, who has lived with a spinal-cord injury from a car crash since she was 18, has been noted as a community advocate for programs to assist people with physical disabilities achieve goals and regain independence. Prior to her election in 2009, she had been an ambassador for the Rick Hansen Man in Motion Foundation, and worked with the B.C. Paraplegic Association for eight years, including serving as director of marketing and development. She has participated in international development projects in El Salvador and Senegal, and was also president of the RealWheels Society, a theatre company promoting positive roles for people with disabilities. “I feel there is a good fit,” Cadieux said. “I’ve done a lot of work in the community in different roles.” She added she wants to take

Always the Best Value In Town!

UBC extension can’t be pushed back decades, students say

Metro urged to reconsider rapid transit priority for Surrey as new hubs for large populated areas. Ahmadian accused Metro directors of “playing politics” with the issue and plans to appear before the Metro regional planning committee Nov. 5. UBC’s 46,000 students already heavily use transit, he said, but added the gains are at risk because 4,000 riders a day are passed by full buses on Broadway. TransLink is studying both a Broadway corridor line serving UBC and potential rapid transit extensions in Surrey. The transportation authority hasn’t yet priorized the projects and is in the midst of studying routes and technologies, which could include SkyTrain, light rail or bus rapid transit connecting Surrey to Langley and possibly White Rock.

Jeff Nagel Black Press

UBC students are pressing Metro Vancouver to back down on its plan to give top priority to a Surrey rapid transit extension ahead of one heading west on the Broadway corridor to their university. The campaign is evidence of a growing tussle over what new transit line gets built next after the Evergreen Line to Coquitlam. UBC Alma Mater Society president Bijan Ahmadian said the line to UBC should be rated an “equally urgent priority” to the Surreyarea expansion. “UBC is the second-largest transit destination in the region,” he said, adding the 100,000 daily riders pack 99 B-Line buses that serve the Broadway corridor, more than the ridership of both the Canada Line and the Millennium Line. “Metro Vancouver staff have gone above and beyond their jurisdiction to undermine a project that is about the sustainability of the region by pushing it back 30 or 40 years.” Metro’s draft regional growth strategy says the next top priorities

editorial

What did she do to deserve this?

V

oters certainly would be forgiven for asking aloud what Stephanie Cadieux has done to deserve her promotion into the premier’s inner circle. There should be no doubt whether SurreyPanorama’s first-term MLA – the only new face in Premier Gordon Campbell’s cabinet shuffle Monday – has had her share of photo-ops (collecting books to promote literacy last spring, rappelling in her wheelchair down a 20-storey building in Vancouver to raise money for Easter Seals last month, getting her flu shot last week). But what, of substance, has she done to be named Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development? What leadership has she shown? What meaningful advice has she given? This isn’t to question her ability compared to other established cabinet ministers, but to compare it to others left behind on the backbenches. Campbell obviously sees something of higher value in Cadieux’s performance since she was elected as a firsttime candidate in May 2009 and, as yet, has not stated eloquently what it is. Thankfully, Campbell has given himself that opportunity tonight (Wednesday), when he addresses the province in a televised address at 7 p.m. on Global TV. In public, Cadieux has presented herself competently, albeit much less gregariously and far more reservedly than her fellow Semiahmoo Peninsula MLAs, Kevin Falcon (SurreyCloverdale) and Gordon Hogg (Surrey-White Rock). Perhaps behind closed doors, Cadieux has proven herself worthy of the premier’s confidence to join Health Minister Falcon and others as a Campbell insider. (Former cabinet minister Hogg, it should be noted, seems to have been on the outside looking in since before the last election, when Campbell dumped him from his most recent post as minister of state for mining.) But will Gordon Campbell’s blessing be a bonus or a barrier for Cadieux? The BC Liberals are in disarray, with Campbell’s popularity plummeting in recent public-opinion polls. Unless Campbell’s televised address manages to convince voters he is on the right path – and that’s a big “if,” given Campbell’s past publicspeaking performances – Campbell and anyone closely connected with him are simply counting down their last terms in government. Cadieux herself certainly would be forgiven for asking what she has done to deserve her promotion into the premier’s inner circle.

Nanaimo came to that stage with the Harmac pulp mill and it has reined in its industrial taxation for new owners. Employees there also learned the hard way about pricing yourself out of the marketplace, buying shares, taking pay cuts and cranking up productivity to restore their jobs. The grind continues for towns such as Port Alberni. Catalyst workers there have voted 98 per cent to reject a company bid to reopen their contract, which runs to 2012 and includes a three per cent wage increase set for next year. The union says the company wants concessions that add up to 21 per cent. If the local taxpayers won’t pay more to keep the mill going, the workers will have to, under this owner or the one that picks up the pieces after bankruptcy. Is the B.C. government going to ride to the rescue of these communities, many of which are growing on the residential side as the baby boom retires? No. And it shouldn’t, either. Municipal leaders came away from their convention with a faint hope that cabinet will consider some kind of aid in the spring budget. But Hansen said that would send a poor message to communities with more reasonable tax rates. The province would be using their tax money to subsidize communities that have been gouging industry. It’s a low-profile version of the harmonized sales tax debate. Consumers, in this case consumers of roads and sewers, are being asked to pay their way.

Easy to find missing funds

A community that cares

Editor: Re: Amtrak service extended, Oct. 20. I didn’t know whether to laugh, cry or scream when I read this article. MP Russ Hiebert (South SurreyWhite Rock-Cloverdale) is quoted saying the $550,000 will now have to be made up elsewhere. This from our MP who one year outspent his equally profligate colleagues by $200,000. A little restraint by our parliamentarians could fund this program and many others. Emile Fuchs, Surrey

Editor: On Tuesday, Oct. 5, I was enjoying the beautiful sunshine on the White Rock promenade, only to trip on the railroad tracks as I made my way to the beach. When I fell, I dislocated my arm. A lady passing by assisted me to my feet and a young man drove me in my car to emergency at the Peace Arch Hospital. They were total strangers and were there to help me during these painful and stressful moments. Arriving at the hospital, my priority was to see a doctor and be treated immediately. During these hectic moments, the Good Samaritan disappeared. I was unable to get his name and thank him. I wish to publicly thank these two souls who stepped up and helped me in my time of need. Margot McDermott, White Rock ■ Let’s hear it for the caregivers at the Weatherby unit of Peace Arch Hospital. I attend there as a volunteer. We volunteers, too, are influenced by the warmth and gentleness displayed by the staff. As one staffer, Tammy, said: “they are like family.”

Speak out over Basi/Virk case Editor: I am in a dither here. My riding, Surrey-White Rock, has elected MLA Gordon Hogg repeatedly, and I don’t see him stepping up and voicing his opinion on the Basi/Virk case and the fact that these two, who admitted guilt after seven years and a cost of $6 million to taxpayers, will be punished only by a two-year house arrest and only having to give up the amount of money that they took in influence. I don’t see Hogg’s explanation to his constituency as to why these two were forced to sign a non-disclosure deal in order to be granted such an easy sentence. Premier Gordon Campbell didn’t run in our area, Gordon Hogg did. And I would like to see him be true to those who live/pay taxes in his riding and come absolutely clean. Don’t tow some party line. Don’t play stupid political games. Just be straight. So that if I am out with my 11-year-old son and we should see Hogg on the street, I can say: “There goes a true representative of the people and not someone who just rides coattails and has no regard for truth and honesty in government.” Gord Fletcher, White Rock

I just want to give those workers a pat on the back for a job well done. Don Davison, Surrey

Two routes to better transit Editor: Re: “SkyTrain not the only option,” Oct. 6 editorial. Before it spends public-transit funds on non-automated light rail (LRT), government should first acknowledge that not only is SkyTrain – a.k.a. automated light rail transit – the safest mode of public transit, but it’s also the cleanest and most efficient. I strongly believe most publictransit funding should go towards extending SkyTrain to wherever the potential utilization of its services warrant – e.g., the already-planned Evergreen Line and then, perhaps, Langley. Such transit is convenient. You can often count on the exact minute, if not second, that it will arrive and leave. Furthermore, because it runs above and below the ground, SkyTrain, unlike the proposed non-automated LRT, does not hinder regular, fossil-fuel-powered vehicular movement, reducing stop-and-go traffic and its negative polluting effects. There are plenty of naysayers who complain about the expense

of SkyTrain, even though LRT would have its own considerable infrastructure costs. SkyTrain’s diverse benefits, however, far outweigh its cost. Frank G. Sterle, Jr., White Rock ■ A SkyTrain to Langley? Canada – the second largest country on the globe; the “best place on earth.” Why do we want to spoil the landscape with concrete pillars? Why not streetcars and LRTs for a fraction of the cost on existing right of ways and less lead time? In many countries around the globe, streetcars have been in service for more than 100 years, and LRTs are replacing some to cover longer distances as the suburbs expand. Modified streetcars are used to deliver materials to plants and consumer goods to stores between 1-4:30 a.m., taking trucks off the road. To name just one, Volkswagen in Wolfsburg – operating the largest car-assembly plant in Europe – makes extensive use of streetcars/ LRTs for just-in-time deliveries seven days a week. What other countries do, we can do better. After all, we are Canadians! The SkyTrain was a nice toy for Expo period. Now let’s go on and built smart, environmentally friendly systems for passengers and cargos. Wolfgang Schmitz, White Rock

Parking rates no help in city Editor: Re: Mayor’s last-minute parking bid ignored, Sept. 29. It’s a sad day when we see White Rock city council working against its taxpaying small businesses down on the beach. The risk of them going out of business in the winter months is high, not to mention the challenge from the new big-box stores. How are you going to make money charging a $1 an hour? Oh yeah, off all the parking tickets the city will issue. It’s bad business and bad PR. Marilyn E. Pearson, Surrey

Bus drivers are forced to slow down to see whether passengers in shelters await them, writes Sandra Clapham.

Ad hoc solution fails big picture Editor: The City of Surrey provides bus shelters that visually impair passengers from seeing the oncoming bus because of needed advertising. Does this make sense? The Surrey city engineers say so, when I phoned to bring this to their attention. They say the city needs the money from the advertising to pay for the bus shelter. Yet we cannot see the bus coming.

Check this out at 24 Avenue and 152 Street heading north. The north end of the wide shelter wall is covered with advertising. Their solution: The bus driver is to slow down and see if anyone is in the bus shelter. Their other possible solution: installing a light sensor from bench to bus-stop post to alert bus drivers of a passenger sitting on the bench. How ridiculous! Sandra Clapham, South Surrey

No backyard hens: council Kevin Diakiw Black Press

The issue of allowing chickens in an urban environment came home to roost briefly at Surrey council last week. But city leaders decided there are enough opportunities to raise chickens for those who want. After hearing from a couple regarding the issue in July, Surrey’s agricultural advisory committee recommended that planning staff should look into the issue. Emre Giffin and Karsen Gradidige had told the committee they wanted to keep six bantam hens, currently kept in Langley, in their backyard in Surrey.

A city bylaw prohibits residents from keeping backyard hens.

Surrey’s bylaws currently prohibit backyard hens. The pair asked the committee to support a bylaw change that would allow six hens per home, as it is in many other municipalities. The committee mentioned

several concerns, including possibility of Avian flu outbreaks, problems arising form high-density urban areas, and what happens when people become tired of raising them. Despite the concerns, the committee recommended council ask staff to look into the issue for potential opportunities for people wanting backyard hens. On Monday, council decided that because one third of Surrey is in the agricultural land reserve (which allows chickens) and one-acre properties in Surrey are allowed up to 12 hens, the idea of allowing them in a more urban environment will not be pursued.

White Rock set to host child forum The City of White Rock will host child care providers, community members, school district personnel and others Friday, at an invitation-only forum focused on identifying issues and gaps in early childhood development. The White Rock Early Childhood Development Forum was prompted by a noted decline in the social competence

and emotional maturity of kindergarten children on the Peninsula. The finding was an outcome of a 2008-09 report by the Human Early Learning Partnership (HELP) at UBC. The report found 17.9 per cent of 84 White Rock children included in the study vulnerable on the social-competence scale, compared to 14.4 per cent of 104 children assessed in 2004.

On the emotional maturity scale, 19.6 per cent of 92 South Surrey children assessed were deemed vulnerable, compared to 6.2 per cent of 82 considered in 2004. Stayte Road numbers were also up slightly on these scales. HELP’s Joanne Schroeder will present on the data Friday. The interactive education forum is to also feature group activities and roundtable discussions.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Fara Shah’s interest in global humanitarian issues won her the B.C. Youth Gandhi Award

Student has finger on the world’s pulse Hannah Sutherland

F

Staff Reporter

ara Shah still remembers the day she first felt the need to act on global issues. She was in Grade 3, helping fold and compress garments that would be sent to Afghanistan as part of a clothing and food drive her mother organized. Shah and her brother were donating their old winter coats, and wrote letters to put in the pockets for the new owner, who, unlike herself, relied on a donation to keep warm. The eye-opening experience prompted Shah to explore social issues further. “Once I really started researching what was ❝I wouldn’t happening, it really hit say I want to me,” she said. “To have inspire people. reality hit you in the face I don’t feel that at such a young age, it compelled me… to I’m inspiring.❞ really not just be a bystander, Fara Shah but be an advocate for award winner human rights.” Since that day, the 17-year-old has contributed to a number of humanitarian causes – work that earned her the B.C. Youth Gandhi Award Friday evening at the B.C. Peace and Global Educators annual conference at the Bell Centre for Performing Arts in Surrey. The award, presented by the B.C. Peace and Global Educators, was initiated in 2007 to recognize and reward high school youth who exemplify a life of non-violence, compassion, humility and service to community and life. According to BCPGE past-president Pummy Kaur – author of the book, What Would Gandhi Do? – recipients also show an understanding of “the big picture,” politically, socially, philosophically and spiritually. Shah said she didn’t know what to expect after applying for the award, so she was surprised to learn when checking her email earlier this month that she had been chosen the winner. “It was really shocking,” the Grade 12 Semiahmoo Secondary student said. “I didn’t believe what I was reading.” Shah – whose parents moved to Canada 20 years ago as Afghan refugees – was recognized for her various volunteer roles, such as working with the region’s Afghan community and grassroots projects that help Afghan women assimilate into communities in Canada. Learning about issues in her parents’ native country helped heighten her

Semiahmoo Secondary Grade 12 student Fara Shah was presented with the B.C. Youth Gandhi Award by the B.C. Peace and Global Educators annual conference last Friday. Shah was recognized for her commitment to various humanitarian causes. awareness of problems in other countries. “Being introduced to one certain scenario, it really opened my eyes to what’s happening globally,” the Fleetwood resident told Peace Arch News, noting she is currently focusing her attention on the “the brutal evacuation of Afghan refugees from Iran.” “That’s something I’m really passionate about right now. It really hits close to home. After doing a lot of research and looking at the problems that these Afghan refugees are facing in Iran, it’s really shocking.”

Shah said she is working with the local Afghan community to start a campaign in an effort to help. “That’s something I’m putting a lot of my energy into right now.” Shah – who interned with Amnesty International last summer – has also had a voice for world affairs through her writing and research as a junior journalist with the Toronto Star. She contributes one article per month, and is currently writing about the United Nations Millennium Development Goal to improve maternal health.

Building better smiles T

local flavours

anya Little was in the midst of pursuing a career in interior design when she stumbled upon a new career path – one that would allow her to express her creativity and satisfy her love of science and helping others. Kristyl Clark Now, instead of decorating spaces, the 34-year-old new mom is beautifying smiles as a denturist with her own practice in South Surrey. “I struggled with bad teeth growing up and know what it’s like to want to hide your smile – I did that for years,” said Little, who had seven teeth extracted and full-metal braces as a young adult. “I really, really enjoy the esthetic part of my job of hand-setting each tooth and creating smiles – smiles my clients can be proud of.” Born and raised in White Rock, Little takes pride in giving back to the community. “I was born at Peace Arch Hospital and I have my own business (Envision Denture and Implant Centre) out here, so my goal is to help as much as I can,” says Little, who donated proceeds from her practice’s grand opening earlier this year to Peace Arch Hospital Foundation. “I’m so blessed to have been so lucky in my life and to be given the opportunities I have, it’s good karma to give back.” Another way Little likes to make others smile is through their stomach. While she admits her husband, Trevor – a Vancouver firefighter – tends to bring the most heat to the kitchen, Little does make one mean bowl of soup.

“My husband is more of the meat man and I like to help with the prepping and making the sides, such as this recipe for Creamy Butternut Squash Soup,” she said. “It’s a great recipe for these cold, rainy fall days.”

local Butternut squash soup flavours Ingredients: 4 whole butternut squash (depending on size) 3 onions cut into large chunks 3 cloves garlic Vegetable stock 1 cup heavy cream Salt and pepper

Instructions:

Take two of the squash and peel them. Cut into large cubes. Discard seeds. Take the other two squash and cut in half, lengthwise. Discard seeds. Oil the cut side and put the garlic in the cavity. Add salt and pepper and put, cut side down, on a baking sheet with parchment paper in an oven at 375 for 45 minutes to an hour. In a large pot, sweat the onions for 5-6 minutes in olive oil, salt and pepper. Add the cubed butternut squash and sauté for another couple of minutes. Cover with vegetable stock and simmer until soft, 45 minutes to an hour. Take the squash from the oven and scoop the flesh into the soup pot. Blend all of the ingredients in a food processor and pass through a single mesh strainer for extra smoothness. Add heavy cream and season to taste. When serving, drizzle with creme fraiche and garnish with fried sage. – recipe courtesy of Mizuna Culinary

Programs to commemorate Canadian soldiers

Surrey Museum honours veterans As part of Veterans Week, the Surrey Museum and the Surrey Archives are hosting three programs to commemorate the sacrifices made by Canadians in both world wars. From 11 a.m. to noon Saturday, Nov. 6, Richmond author Anthony Cowling talks about My Life with the Samurai, the story of his 44-month ordeal in a Japanese prisoner-ofwar camp. Cowling had just

joined the RAF at 17 after lying about his age, when the Japanese captured him. Out of about 2,000 men, the now-retired police officer was one of only 300 survivors. He wrote his book to recount his experiences as he beat the odds against starvation and brutality. Also Nov. 6, from 1:30-2:30 p.m., Langley author Warren Sommer will present In Flanders Fields: The Canadian Corps in France and

Good grades and hours of volunteer work paid off for White Rock’s Tessa Burnside, with a $2,000 scholarship from Envision Financial. Burnside, an Earl Marriott Secondary graduate was among 16 students chosen out of nearly 100 applicants to receive the education award. Winners are selected based on community involvement and strong academic performance. The scholarship program is a valuable way of encouraging students to maintain their academic and community responsibilities, Envision’s Bev Brown said in a statement. “This year’s scholarship winners are exceptional leaders who deserve to have their achievements recognized. As an organization, we’re very to proud to help these students with their tuition costs, and we hope they continue making a difference in the lives of others.” Burnside is currently attending Queen’s University, and hopes to become a teacher.

Tougher rules nail thousands of drivers Jeff Nagel Black Press

More than 1,400 drivers have been nailed with tougher penalties for impaired driving and another 435 have had their vehicles impounded for excessive speeding in the first 20 days of B.C.’s historic crackdown on dangerous driving. Of the drivers sanctioned for driving with a blood-alcohol content of 0.05 or above, 1,239 had their vehicles impounded but in most cases those drivers had blown readings higher than 0.08. In the Lower Mainland, 254 drivers got immediate three-day roadside prohibitions and 363 got 90-day prohibitions between Sept. 20 and Oct. 10. Besides losing their licence and car, motorists face costs of $600 to $4,000 to get back on the road. Speeders caught at 40 kilometres or more above the limit can be impounded for seven days – 30 days on a second offence or 60 days for subsequent violations within two years. Nearly 200 of the excessive speeders were caught in the Lower Mainland. Nearly 20,000 tickets – more than 3,000 a month – have also been handed out province-wide to drivers using cellphones or other handheld devices since a new distracted driving law came into effect Feb. 1. The new statistics came as Vancouver Police Union president Tom Stamatakis warned the stepped-up impaired enforcement is eating up police officers’ time waiting for tow trucks and taxis to arrive. Solicitor General Mike de Jong said the number of drivers penalized is “alarming” but he defended the tougher administrative sanctions. “The overwhelming response I have received from peace officers across the province is receptiveness and enthusiasm for the ability and the option of using a new tool,” he said. De Jong said he doubts the administrative penalties will prove to be onerous for police, noting they might delay an officer 15 to 30 minutes up front, but avoid the need for a full impaired driving investigation that consumes hours that night and potentially days of court time later on. Officers previously issued up to 40,000 24-hour roadside suspensions a year to drivers in the “warn range”

Since tougher impaired driving rules were put in place, RCMP have penalized more than 1,400 drivers.

of 0.05 to 0.08. According to the public safety ministry, drivers in the warn range are seven times more likely on average to be in a fatal crash than if they have no alcohol in their body. Three impoundments within five years now also force a driver to take a responsible driving course and use an ignition interlock device for a year after their ban is lifted. The rules have been a new blow to restaurants because many patrons now are unsure whether the drink or two they previously enjoyed dining out now puts them at risk. “The public doesn’t understand what 0.05 means now,” said Ian Tostenson, president and CEO of the B.C. Restaurants and Foodservices Association. He estimated restaurants have seen sales drop 10 to 20 per cent in recent months, but attributed that to the combined impact of the economy, the HST and the impaired driving crackdown. It’s been easier for downtown Vancouver restaurants, which have more clientele who don’t need to drive, but Tostenson said it’s significantly worse in more suburban areas of the Lower Mainland and rural parts of B.C. Many restaurants are working, in some cases together, to find new ways to get patrons home safely without driving, he said, and some establishments are starting to offer more lowalcohol drinks. “We’re slowly making the adjustment,” Tostenson said. “I think we’ll get to a place of normalcy over time.”

The two former Albion ferries that were replaced last year by the new Golden Ears Bridge will be sold for scrap. TransLink tried to sell the vessels for $1.1 million each but got no offers and only minimal interest from prospective buyers after posting them on Craigslist and marine industry websites. Officials expect the scrap value will only offset the labour and transportation costs of breaking up and removing the boats, which have been docked since mid-2009. “If we can’t sell them we may as well realize some value for them and not just continue to incur fixed costs,” TransLink spokesman Ken Hardie said. The 150-foot 25-car ferries were built in 1972 and described as being in immaculate condition with new engines installed in the last few years. Keeping them anchored near their old slips was costing TransLink money in security and maintenance to periodically start the engines and ensure they were in as-advertised condition. The last trip of the MV Kulleet and MV Klatawa was July 31, 2009 – a month after the tolled Golden Ears Bridge opened,

providing a direct link between Langley and Maple Ridge. The change ended free crossings, as well as lengthy multi-sailing waits. Employees and supporters had campaigned to keep the ferries and possibly continue some form of privately run service. “We did not see another use for them,” Hardie said. The global financial collapse scuttled one prospective deal that nearly sent them north for use as freight carrriers, he added. TransLink is also scrapping more than 100 old diesel buses that have been retired and found no buyers either. “They were the older highfloor buses that had the lifts instead of ramps,” Hardie said, adding there’s currently a glut of old buses on the market. While some people feel it’s wrong to scrap old buses, he said, selling them to new users can expose TransLink to liability if there are problems. The main expense of operating buses is the labour, fuel and maintenance, he said, adding the cost of even a brand new bus represents only about 15 per cent of the lifetime cost of running it. Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie

Daykin hadn’t heard about the ships’ destruction, but pointed out there would have been high costs to retrofit them to keep them in service somewhere else. “Maybe I’ll have to go buy a bell or a steering wheel or something.” He said losing the ships is similar to an old house being knocked down to make way for a new condo development. “It’s a part of our history. It’s sad to see it go. “That battle [to save the Albion ferries] is over and it’s sad they can’t be used for something other than being used for scrap.” Meanwhile, TransLink has found no tenants for the Albion ferry terminal. That land remains vacant, although the District of Maple Ridge has asked Metro Vancouver to include that as parkland for possible use with the Experience the Fraser project, which aims to get a bike and walking trail on both sides of the Fraser River from Vancouver to Hope. Daykin pointed out the old Albion ferry terminal could be fitted with a boat launch, though parking would be limited, noting there’s nowhere to launch a boat between Mission and Port Coquitlam. – files from Phil Melnychuk

the scene …on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

White Rock Gallery

White Rock Gallery’s first major group show in two years, Fusion, runs until Oct. 31 at the gallery, 1247 Johnston Road. The show highlights the work of five noted artists: Peninsula painters Susan Flaig and Min Ma, Vancouver Island’s Laura Harris and Ray Ward and Vancouver’s Donna Zhang. While featuring a great diversity of subject matter and approach the exhibition also shows subtle similarities between the artists in colour and tonal range, a taste for the enigmatic that invites viewers to engage personally with the work, and above all a level of commitment and technical expertise. Zhang’s arresting portraits of Tibetan children and Ma’s compellingly meticulous landscapes reveal their unerring eye and drawing skill, while Harris’ exuberant abstracts are powerful explosions of colour and layering. There is also an abstract subtext and multiple layering that provide emotional impact to Flaig’s ostensibly floral studies while Ward blends sharp-edged realism with blurred distortion to provide multi-dimensional paintings of the windswept west coast. All paintings are also posted on the gallery website show page. For more information, call 604-538-4452 or visit www. whiterockgallery.com

Social justice films

The White Rock Social Justice Film Festival presents the return of its Friday Night Film Series starting this month at First United Church, 15385 Semiahmoo Ave. The Coca Cola Case (Oct. 29) presents a searing indictment of the soft drink empire and its alleged links to kidnapping, torture and murder of union leaders trying to improve working conditions in plants in Colombia, Guatemala and Turkey. Taking Root (Nov. 26) is a compelling documentary narrative about the first environmentalist – and first African woman – to win the Nobel Peace Prize. The Yes Men Fix The World (Jan. 21) is the screwball true story of two gonzo political activists who pose as top executives of giant corporations, lie their way into business conferences and pull off outrageous pranks that highlight the absence of leadership and accountability in the corporate world. All films are at 7 p.m. and admission is by donation. The film festival itself is scheduled to return Friday, Feb. 18 and Saturday, Feb. 19, 2011.

PacifiCare: personal health & home support

W

hile retirement communities have become an increasingly popular choice for the elderly in the past decade – it isn’t the only option available for those requiring assistance with activities of daily living. Whether a senior wants to continue living in his/her own home, with family members or in an assisted-living facility, they can thrive and enjoy an enhanced quality of life with the help of PacifiCare. Established in 1992, the B.C.-owned and operated company – with an office in South Surrey – is an invaluable resource that helps families to stop worrying about their aging loved ones.

Whether your mother suffers from Alzheimer’s and needs 24-hour live-in care, your father hasn’t been eating properly and could use help with his meals and bathing, or perhaps your lonely aunt could use a little companionship, PacifiCare can help put your mind at ease. “We take great pride in matching clients with the right caregiver to create a supportive and effective partnership,” says Robin Rankine, manager of PacifiCare in South Surrey. “All of our care aids and nursing professionals (LPNs and RNs) are registered, bonded, insured, trained and experienced.”

For many seniors who have lived in the same house for most of their lives – surrounded by memories and cherished possessions – relocating into a facility can be a devastating blow. Although there are a few medical conditions beyond the scope of home care, most people can be safely maintained in their homes with the right care and equipment, says Robin. “At PacifiCare we recognize how beneficial it can be for our clients to remain in their own homes and we are here to let them know that, yes, they can stay where they feel most comfortable if that is what they wish.” While PacifiCare has many long-term

senior clients, the extensive senior-based care service is available to anyone who requires temporary assistance from a certified care aid. “We have a lot of clients of all ages who need temporary assistance after surgery – just until they get back on their feet,” says Robin. “A lot of times there is nobody to look after them because their families are busy or live out of town, so, they end up back in emergency because they fail to thrive. “Some just need a little extra help with their meals or washing – little things that make such a big difference!” � see page A31

Veterinary clinic offers discount for senior pet owners Pets may help elderly owners live longer, healthier and more enjoyable lives. From helping seniors cope with loneliness and stress, to providing protection and security, the benefits are endless. A study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society revealed that independently living seniors who

own pets tend to be more physically fit and have better mental well-being over those who don’t. These pet-loving seniors are more active, cope well with stress, and have lower blood pressure In recognition of the numerous health benefits animals can provide to their senior caregivers, South Point

Pet Hospital is offering an exclusive discount for seniors of 10 per cent off all services for their pets on Sundays. Time is also set aside throughout the day to speak with seniors about any questions or concerns they might have regarding the health of their furry friends. For seniors who are unable to bring their pet into the clinic or whose senior

pet are not in the best of health to travel, South Point Vet offers home visits in the White Rock and South Surrey area. South Point Pet Hospital has been proudly serving the South Surrey and White Rock areas since 2004. For more information about South Point Pet Hospital or Senior Sundays, visit www.southpointvet.com

Making a difference for seniors and their families � from page 29 PacifiCare has been helping Iris York live independently in her White Rock condo. At 94 years of age, the widow’s household chores have become increasingly difficult to keep up with. Despite being in good health and strong spirit, Iris no longer has the energy she used to for grocery shopping or cleaning her condo. Having enjoyed entertaining guests and living independently, relocating into a retirement community wasn’t an option. When her daughter-inlaw suggested she contact PacifiCare, Iris decided to give the personal healthcare and home support service a try. Three days a week, Iris receives a visit from Dena, a certified care aid who cleans her condo and assists with meal preparations. The two also enjoy a game of crib when time permits. Like all of the caregivers hired by PacifiCare, Dena has received the same training and certification as care aids employed at retirement communities. Aside from being a huge help, Iris says Dena is a pleasure to have around. “I’ve been very pleased with who PacifiCare has matched me with and am happy I can continue living here in my own home with their assistance,” she says. “I couldn’t imagine not having her help.” In addition to providing assistance for individuals in the comfort of their own home, PacifiCare also provides one-

For the past three months, Sumiko Young, a 79-year-old Pacifica Retirement resident in White Rock, has received help from PacifiCare to assist with routine daily tasks, such

as washing her hair and ironing her clothes – simple activities which have become a challenge as a result of the crippling effects of rheumatoid arthritis. “It’s really hard to find nice people you can trust, but the ladies that visit have been really good for me,” says Sumiko of

her two care aids who come by three days a week. Sumiko also notes the service has been a relief to her family members who have worried about her in the past. “My daughters don’t have to worry about me anymore because I am in good hands,” she says. “That is a big relief for them.” While a caregiver can make a world of difference for seniors who may need a little or lot of help, having the right assisted living products in their homes can make life even more comfortable and enjoyable without sacrificing their need for independence and privacy. That’s why PacifiCare is proud work closely with Way to Go, a supplier of affordable, high-quality medical supplies, bathroom safety and incontinence products. Wheelchairs, safety rails and lift chairs are just a few of the products this leading Canadian retail company provides – all of which are delivered free of charge, with the exception of small orders of incontinence supplies. A staff of trained and certified home medical specialists work closely with occupational therapists to recommend equipment to best meet the needs and budget of each client. “We’re about providing everyday confidence – whatever that entails,” says Bill Anderson, sales and service manager of Way to Go! “I have been in the senior care industry for the past seven years and have seen firsthand just how the right mobility products

and daily living aids can make a huge difference in a senior’s quality of life, including my own grandfather.” Bill’s grandfather, a 90-yearold veteran has been living with his daughter and son in law for the past four years. To accommodate their father, the couple purchased a home with a master bedroom on the main floor in South Surrey, fully equipped with products from Way to Go, including hand rails, a power lift chair and an elevated toilet seat. Having suffered from a variety of health complications, including a heart attack, cancer, colostomy, aneurysm, osteoarthritis and macular degeneration, PacifiCare has been a welcome relief for his family. “Pacificare has helped us an awful lot,” says William. “The people they employ have been in the field for quite some time and a have a good understanding of the different ailments my father-in-law suffers from. You really have to have the expertise and aptitude to handle it. I really commend them for what they do!” PacifiCare accepts ICBC, WorkSafe and Department of Veterans Affairs Claims.

A smarter way to give A single donation today can support your favourite charities now and in the future. During our lifetime, we often measure our success by tangible accomplishments. We own homes, vacation properties, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and other valuable assets. Sometimes, we measure our success by our achievements in the workplace. While these are important, they are only a small part of the impact we can have on our communities. The Investors Group Charitable Giving Program™ allows you to shape and define your impact. Whatever your interest, whatever your passion, the program offers individuals many of the advantages of private charitable foundations by establishing an investment designed to provide your chosen charities with ongoing grants. The difference between this program and establishing your own private foundation, however, is that the work of administering your own foundation is eliminated. A gift of cash or securities under the Investors Group Charitable Giving Program is used to make a donation to the Strategic Charitable Giving Foundation (a registered charity) that provides an immediate charitable donation tax receipt. Then, through investments into certain Investors Group mutual funds you select, monies are distributed annually to the charities of your choice. Over time, based on the performance of these investments, the Foundation could provide much needed grants to your favourite charities for many years to come.

Ask us how the Investors Group Charitable Giving Program can be incorporated into your estate plan and save you tax. Let’s talk soon about how this program can help your generosity live on.

Take back control of your joint health today

metrocreative photo

Evaluate your joint health to take the first step to improve it.

With the population of baby boomers – people born between 1946 and 1964 – at more than 77 million, obesity at an all-time high, and initial signs of osteoarthritis often symptom free, the vast majority of the population is still relatively unaware of their current state and the importance of joint health. According to a recent study, approximately one-third of North Americans 35 and older said their joints prevented them from doing their favourite sport or activity and more than 50 per cent of them just accepted that as part of the aging process. This leaves a lot

of people asking questions like, “What can I do?” The Joint Juice joint health assessment (www.jointjuice. com/joint-health.jsp) is one of the first interactive web-based tools that allows individuals to easily evaluate their joint health and take proactive steps to improve it. Individuals are now able to log onto jointjuice.com for an illustrative assessment that determines the condition of their joints based on a series of 15 questions regarding Body Mass Index (BMI), diet, exercise, lifestyle, and joint health history. Renowned orthopaedic

surgeon and founder of Joint Juice, Inc., a leading joint health nutrition company, Kevin R. Stone, M.D., created the joint health assessment as a means to educate individuals about key factors that impact joint health and to provide expert insight that can empower individuals to improve their joints – such as weight loss, regular exercise or taking crucial vitamins and minerals, including glucosamine and chrondroitin. The Joint Juice joint health assessment not only features joint health tips from Dr. Stone, but also includes fitness tips from celebrity ultramarathoner

and long-time user of Joint Juice products Dean Karnazes. With these simple tips, people can take control of joint health and continue doing the activities they love to do throughout their life. When suffering from joint health-related issues, it’s imperative to see a physician for a routine check-up at least once a year. Request an examination of your joints – from head to toe – and ask for tips on protecting your joints from daily stress. To learn more about joint health or to take the Joint Juice joint health assessment, visit jointjuice.com.

Seniors invited to attend free seminar on denture care Maintaining oral hygiene through proper denture care remains important in your senior years as it not only benefits your oral health, but can also influence your quality of life. Residents of the Peninsula and Pacifica Retirement Resorts will have the opportunity to ask registered denturist,

Tanya Little, questions about the proper fit, care, cleaning and maintenance of their dentures during two information sessions on Tuesday, Nov. 9. Little will also provide information about dentures over implants, relines and repairs, as well as a review of the latest treatment options available.

“People don’t need to live with the discomfort or embarrassment of illfitting dentures,” said Little, owner of Envision Denture and Implant Centre. “I recommend visiting your denturist once a year for a regular check-up to ensure the best fit for your appliance.” Little is pleased to be taking the time

from her South Surrey clinic to provide an opportunity for local seniors to learn more about caring for their smiles. “I hope to help seniors by providing them up to date information,” said Little. For more information or to arrange a complimentary consultation email info@envisiondenture.com

Safety tips for sunbirds Making friends after retirement With winter’s brisk winds nipping at our heels, many seniors are gearing up to head south for sun and sand. Those about to take to the road, water or sky, however, should consider the following tips before heading off to parts unknown. * Pack medications in your carry-on. Prescription medications should be packed in your carry-on whenever travelling to prevent losing vital medications should your checked bags be lost during your travels. * Consult with your physician and create a list of past and current conditions and any medications. In the unfortunate event you lose any of your medication or fall ill during your travels, a list of all current and past conditions and medications can help the physician who will be treating you better understand you and your medical history. Be sure to inform any travelling companions about this list, and keep it on you at all times when travelling. * Figure out time zones and a medication schedule ahead of time. When travelling to different time zones, it can be difficult to adhere to a medication schedule. Before leaving, work out a new schedule that takes into account the different time zones you will be visiting during your travels. * Be sure your vaccinations are up to date. Certain countries mandate your vaccinations are up to date before you can enter the

metrocreative photo

Seniors readying themselves to flock south for winter vacation should take steps to ensure their prescriptions and additional medical services are available wherever it is they are going. country, and some require vaccinations be administered as early as six weeks before your visit. Be sure all vaccinations are updated in adherence to the guidelines of where you will be visiting.

* Remain hydrated. Planes often have dry air, which can cause dehydration and muscle aches. So be sure to drink plenty of water to guard against dehydration.

When you’re younger, it seems you can’t wait until retirement. After all, who wants to deal with going to work every day and coping with coworkers and a boss? However, many people overlook the opportunities for socialization that working provides. You get out of the house and see people – apart from your family – with whom you can converse. Many retirees find that life can be a bit boring after the job ends, primarily because they don’t have access to the same level of socialization as they once did. Making friends can keep you active and healthy. If you’re a bit rusty in the friend-making department, it’s pretty much how it was when you were younger. You simply must find individuals who have similar interests and goals. * Volunteer in your community and you’re bound to find potential friends who are likeminded. * Take classes at a college or university. Many offer free or discounted rates for seniors. This is a great way to meet people of all ages and walks of life. * Think about your interests. If you like fishing, sewing or boating, join a club that caters to those interests. Others who share your hobbies will be there. * If you’re new to an area, host an open-house party and invite neighbours in for introductions and some socialization. * Join a social networking site

Luxurious lottery home fit for high-end living Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

Thousands are expected to visit White Rock’s $3.2-million lottery home for its grand opening this weekend. The waterfront estate, which has been available for public viewing since last Friday, is one of three grand-prize offerings in the Millionaire Designer Home Lottery, which benefits VGH and UBC Hospital Foundation. Located at 14495 Marine Dr., the 5,200-square-foot house includes a large, open kitchen with a 15-foot, eight-inch marble island, built-in coffee station and dual dishwashers – among other top-of-the-line accessories – as well as separate dining and living rooms. The main floor’s half-covered deck is accessible through more than 30 feet of folding doors, and all three of the home’s levels can be reached by a lighted stairwell or elevator.

Nine-foot ceilings and hardwood floors can be found throughout, in addition to four bedrooms; six bathrooms fit with heated floors; a large laundry room; media, utility, wine and TV rooms; a hot tub and gym. The master bedroom features dual closets, a fireplace, a MountBaker view, 16-foot folding doors that lead to a covered balcony and an en suite with a steam shower, granite countertops and chandelier. The prize home (open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.) also comes with a 2011 Mercedes Benz GLK 350 and $25,000 cash. The other grand-prize options are a Kitsilano house (open Wednesday to Sunday at 2204 Balaclava St. from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.) worth more than $2.5 million, or $2.3 million in tax-free cash. Chances are one-in-116,000 (the number of tickets for sale) to win a grand prize. Millionaire lottery, celebrating its 15th anniversary, is also giving away hundreds of smaller prizes, such as electronics and travel packages. Tickets ($100; two for $175; three for $250; eight for $500) can be purchased at the prize homes; Vancouver General Hospital; London Drugs; by phone at

he Surrey Eagles looked awfully pretty in pink last weekend, winning three games against divisional rivals, including a pair while wearing pink-and-white sweaters in support of breast cancer awareness month. On Friday, the Eagles opened the weekend with a 5-1 win over the Coquitlam Express – who had beaten the Birds in four of five previous meetings – and on Saturday, travelled to Langley, where they outscored the Chiefs in the third period en route to a 5-3 victory. The following afternoon, back in South Surrey, the Eagles completed the sweep, edging the Chiefs 6-4. “We had a nice eight, nine day break, and we were able to get healthy and mentally refreshed. We also were able to get a full week of practice in, which we hadn’t had all season because we’ve played so many games,” said Eagles head coach Matt Erhart. “And it’s always nice to get wins against teams like Langley and Coquitlam, because we play them more than anybody, and every game is a like a four-point (swing).” Originally, the Eagles planned to wear the pink-trimmed jerseys on Friday only, but after the win, donned them Sunday, too. Now, to keep the streak alive, they are scheduled to wear them a third time before October is over, likely at the team’s final home game of the month, this Saturday against the Westside Warriors. “We’re 2-0 with them on, so we’re gonna keep going with it,” said Erhart, who laughed when it was suggested pink and white should perhaps become the team’s new permanent colour scheme. On the weekend, the Eagles offence was led – again – by its top line of Brad McGowan, Jeff Vanderlugt and Richard Vanderhoek. McGowan finished with nine points in three games – and

Hockey League scoring leaders – and Vanderlugt potted a hat trick Saturday in Langley. Not to be outdone, Vanderhoek tallied three assists in Sunday’s win. “Brad’s been on fire the whole year, and he really stepped it up again,” said Erhart. “He had a great start to the season, and he hasn’t let his foot off the gas.” Top three scorers aside, Surrey also had strong secondary scoring from the likes of Daniel Gentzler, who potted two goals Sunday, and captain Tyler Morley, who returned to the lineup after missing the last five games due to injury. “It’s really nice to get our captain back. He’s our captain for a reason, so him coming back

really gave the team a boost,” Erhart said. Though the Eagles’ offence was again solid, Erhart said a renewed commitment to defence was the key to the weekend sweep. “We just made some adjustments, especially against Coquitlam, and we paid a lot more attention to the defensive side of things,” he said. With the Eagles having just five healthy blue-liners heading into the weekend – a sixth, new arrival Kyle Madsen, was dealt to the Alberta Junior A League’s Spruce Grove Saints last week – affiliate player Tim Coish was called up from the Junior B Port Moody Black Panthers. Coish, an 18-year-old Peninsula native, was paired on the

blue line with Doug Wedel. “Tim did a real nice job for us back there. He was solid,” Erhart said. After a tough October schedule that sees the Eagles play 12 games, including seven on the road – with three left, beginning today (Wednesday) in Coquitlam – Erhart is looking forward to a quieter November. The team plays just eight times next month, and all but two are home games. And the two road contests aren’t far away either – both are in Langley. “We’ve played a lot of road games so far, so it’ll be nice to see it settle down a bit,” Erhart said. “We don’t leave the Lower Mainland for an entire month, so that’s going to be good for us.”

Another Surrey Eagle is headed east to Rochester. Last week, Eagles’ forward Brad McGowan – the leading scorer in the B.C. Hockey League after a nine-point weekend – committed to attend the NCAA’s Rochester Institute for the 2011/12 season. McGowan will be the third member of the Eagles to join the RIT Tigers in recent years, joining Surrey alumni Adam Hartley and Scott Knowles, who are in their second and third years at the east-coast school, respectively. McGowan, a Langley native, is in his second year with the Eagles, having joined the team after leading the Brad McGowan Richmond Sockeyes to Eagles forward a Western Canadian Junior B Championship in 2008/09. McGowan has averaged more than two points per game this season for Surrey, leading the league with 40 points in 18 contests. His 18 goals are also second best in the league, three behind Trail Smoke Eaters’ Sam Mellor. McGowan was convinced RIT was the right choice after making a recent visit to the upstate New York campus. “It is exciting to go to a school which supports their sports teams so passionately. I went for a fly down (earlier this month) and they had 10,000 fans for an RIT game,” he said. “The energy in the building was amazing and I’m looking forward to being a part of that.” Eagles coach Matt Erhart, who described McGowan, 20, as “a bit of a late-bloomer” was thrilled to see his scoring star lock up a scholarship. “He played junior B at 18 and was a 19-year-old rookie year last year, so to see him advance (to the NCAA), we’re really happy for him,” Erhart said. McGowan is the third member of the current Eagles’ team to commit to the NCAA, joining Tyler and Brandon Morley, who will both attend Merrimack College. “And hopefully there’s even more to come,” Erhart said of his team’s college recruits.

presence at the tournament, with three different South Surrey schools winning in recent years. Last year, EMS defeated Clayton Heights in the finals, while Semiahmoo won backto-back championships in 2007 and ’08. In 2005, the PAN Classic was won by Elgin Park. In fact, according to Houchen, Earl Marriott – with wins in 1991, 1998 and last year – holds the distinction of most PAN Classic titles, an honour the team shares with D.W. Poppy, which won three times between 2002-06. This year’s tournament – which will be held at Elgin Park, EMS and Semiahmoo courts – begins Friday at 1:30 p.m. when Elgin takes on Sands Secondary at EPS. At the same time, Semi will host Delta. At 2 p.m., Earl Marriott begins its title defence on its home court, against Poppy. The semifinals are slated for 2 p.m. Saturday at Semiahmoo, with the bronzemedal game at 3:15 and the finals at 4:30 p.m.
