Surrey schools fill up fast

Hogg mum on leader

Number crunch

Campbell criticism ‘hurts B.C.’

As students and teachers bade farewell to summer holidays and headed back to class this week, Surrey defies the provincial trend of declining school enrolment. While most school districts are dealing with lower student numbers, Surrey, the largest district in B.C., continues to grow. Nearly 1,200 new students are expected this week, bringing total enrolment in local public schools to upwards of 67,700. But with the influx of students comes a need for more school space. There are currently 99 elementary and 19 high schools. And at many schools, there is the addition of numerous portables to handle the overflow of students. In some booming neighbourhoods, like the Clayton area of Cloverdale, brand new schools open with portables already on site. NDP Leader Carole James stopped in Surrey last week to highlight the number of portables currently in use in the school district. This fall there will be 232 portables on Surrey school grounds, up from 217. James blamed the Liberal government’s short-sightedness and lack of planning – a point Education Minister Margaret MacDiarmid refutes. MacDiarmid said the province has provided Surrey $219 million in capital funds since 2001 and that by next September, there will be 58 new classrooms in Surrey thanks to school additions to six elementary schools and new modular classrooms to accommodate full-day kindergarten. MacDiarmid also noted that Surrey’s portable count was at its peak under NDP leadership in the late 1990s. Still, by 2011, one in 10 Surrey students is expected to be attending class in a portable. Part of the problem is that provincial funding isn’t based on population projections, but rather, on existing numbers, meaning a city such as Surrey, with about 1,000 new residents each month, is continually playing catch up. MacDiarmid said there’s no plan to change the funding system because no one wants to run the risk of opening a brand new school that then sits half-empty because population estimates didn’t come to fruition. While some school-building projects are underway in Surrey (such as the new Adams Road Elementary, slated to open in  see page 4

As prominent B.C. Liberals discuss Premier Gordon Campbell’s future with the party – including one calling for his resignation – MLA Gordon Hogg said such public blasts are “detrimental” to both the party and province. Asked Tuesday whether he supports Campbell’s leadership heading into the next election, Hogg (Surrey-White Rock) said only that he “supports the process that is before us.” “I have spent most of my life playing in sports and I know that Gordon Hogg there are times Surrey-White Rock when people disagree with their coaches, but you don’t go out and publicly express those concerns, you try and work within the relationship and issues of your team and your process and I think that’s what we need to do now.” Over the weekend, former Williams Lake mayor Scott Nelson publicly called on Campbell to announce his retirement soon, so the party can start fresh with a new leader. In an online blog last Thursday, Langley constituency president Jordan Bateman predicted Campbell would step aside. Hogg said party members will have an opportunity to express their support – or lack thereof – of Campbell’s leadership by anonymously voting during constituency meetings, most of which are to be held over the next six weeks. The results of the ballot are to be announced at the party’s convention in Penticton in November. “I don’t think it’s helpful for people to be selecting and saying who might be an appropriate replacement or whether (Campbell) should be leaving immediately or  see page 2

Breathalyzer wait not reasonable


$ 99


Drink charge dropped Beef after six-minute delay Tenderlion Dan Ferguson Black Press

By waiting six minutes, a Surrey Mountie waited too long to decide to administer a breathalyzer test to a suspected impaired driver, a Surrey Provincial Court judge has ruled. In January 2009, a Surrey RCMP constable pulled over a vehicle. The officer could smell alcohol on the driver’s breath, and the driver admitted to having two drinks in the previous two hours. When the driver blew into a portable breath alcohol testing device, the fail warning light came on. The officer then arrested the driver for impaired driving. Then the Mountie searched the driver, put the driver in his police car, then searched the driver’s car. After reading the driver his rights, the officer made a formal demand as required by law that the driver provide a sample of his breath to a more precise breathalyzer at the police station.

It was six minutes from when the driver failed the roadside test to when the officer made his demand for a breath sample. The driver’s lawyer argued that violated the law that says the demand must be made “as soon as practical.” Judge James O. Wingham agreed, noting the B.C. Supreme Court has already ruled a seven-minute delay violated the same law. The issue is not the exact amount of time, Wingham added, but whether the actions of the police officer would have prevented them from making the demand sooner. In the Surrey case, the judge said, there was no reason why the officer couldn’t have made his demand sooner. While the delay was “relatively short,” the judge said, “the evidence does not establish that the delay in making the demand was necessary or reasonable” and dismissed the charges. The written reasons for the June 1, 2010 decision by the judge were posted online on Thursday.

‘Difficult time’ in Liberal party  from page 1 later or whatever point of time,” Hogg said. “I don’t think it’s a time for us to be taking shots at each other, I think it’s a time for us to be appropriate and to work our way through a process that is part of our bylaws. “We’re now seeing some people within the B.C. Liberal Party who are expressing concerns publicly and there are processes for dealing with that,” Hogg said. “I think it’s damaging for the province and damaging for the party and damaging in terms of the best interests of the people to be stepping out and saying too much at this point in time when we have a process in place for managing and dealing with issues such as this.”

Hogg said he understands why some party members have publicly expressed concerns, and said he has, too, in regards to the way the harmonized sales tax was introduced. But his overall support of the tax has landed him on the “HST Hit List,” which names 24 politicians targeted for recall efforts led by organizers of the anti-HST campaign. Hogg acknowledged “it’s a difficult time right now within the B.C. Liberal party,” and said the next step is dealing with the leadership review vote. “We need to show strength and the ability to rejuvenate and renew.” MLAs Stephanie Cadieux (Surrey-Panorama) and Kevin Falcon (Surrey Cloverdale) could not be reached for comment.

news Allegations will be dispelled, says pilot

Province sues over hot-air balloon tragedy Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

RV park is surveyed after crash.

The pilot of a hot-air balloon that burst into flames over Hazelmere RV Park & Campground three years ago, killing two people, is among several parties being sued by the province for health-care costs associated with the crash. SRP Adventure Tours Ltd., Aerostar International Inc., Raven Industries, Doug Scott and the attorney general of Canada (Transport Canada) are also named alongside pilot Stephen Pennock, in documents filed Sept. 2 in B.C. Supreme Court. Langley mother and daughter Shannon and Gemma Knackstedt were killed and 11 others, including Pennock, injured when the Aerostar S77A Pennock was piloting Aug. 24, 2007 caught fire during takeoff preparations at the 18843 8 Ave. RV park. Investigation determined a substantial fuel leak caused an uncontrolled blaze in the cockpit.

According to the court documents, the provJohn Kageorge, a longtime friend of Pennock’s ince claims Pennock operated the balloon “when who has been speaking for the pilot since the he knew or ought to have known that he lacked tragedy, described the government’s claims as the proper skills and training to safely false. “Steve knows these allegations will be operate and maintain the balloon.” As well, the claim states Transport dispelled and the facts will be clear in the eventual legal hearings,” Kageorge Canada was negligent and/or breached its duty of care by issuing operating cersaid by email. tificates without ensuring Pennock and The province’s claim, allowed under Sec. 8 of the Health Care Costs RecovSRP Adventures Ltd. were adequately equipped “to conduct a safe balloon ery Act, is the latest in about two dozen suits and countersuits filed in operation.” Pennock, through a statement issued connection with the crash.

Planted van used as lure

Two rise to police bait Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

Two brothers are facing multiple charges this week, after police intercepted a bait vehicle taken from a South Surrey neighbourhood. “It was a good arrest… pretty quick,” said Sgt. Gord Elias of the Integrated Municipal Provincial Auto Crime Team. Police, including a dog team, were dispatched just after 2:30 a.m. Monday, after a van planted by IMPACT members was stolen from the area of 140 Street and 20A Avenue. The van was tracked and its engine disabled near 152 Street and 20 Avenue, Elias said. “As the vehicle coasted to a stop, the members moved in right away,” Elias said. Two men were arrested without incident. One, a 22-year-old of no fixed address, faces charges of theft under $5,000, possession of stolen property, breach of probation and driving while prohibited. A 30-year-old man who told police he lives in South Surrey faces charges of theft under $5,000 and possession of stolen property in connection with the incident. Elias noted that while auto theft is on the decrease in Surrey, the crime still keeps police busy. He declined to release statistics. “Suffice to say we have arrested more people in 2010 so far than we ever have.”

Water guns attract attention A report of two youths with guns sent police flocking to a South Surrey neighbourhood Friday. The Mounties’ dedicated helicopter, a dog team and members of the Emergency Response Team descended on the area of 148 Street and 16 Avenue – near Semiahmoo Secondary – around 11 p.m. Sept. 3. They located two individuals, and quickly determined the ‘weapons’ posed no threat. “Looks like they were playing with water pistols,” Const. Peter Neily said. The pair received “a stern lecture” and were sent on their way, Neily said, noting charges will not be pursued. The incident was the second report of its kind in one week. Last Wednesday, police arrested a man at gunpoint following multiple reports of an armed man walking on 16 Avenue. Police determined the authenticlooking weapons were paintball guns.

Ken Holmberg is looking for information about the missing bracelet he gave to his mother, Eileen Holmberg, 42 years ago.

Unique bracelet given at Christmas 42 years ago

Son hopes to recover mother’s gift Hannah Sutherland Staff Reporter

A White Rock man in search of his senior mother’s missing bracelet is asking anyone in the community with information on its disappearance to step forward. Ken Holmberg said the piece of jewelry – a one-of-a-kind silver wristband with an eagle engraving – hasn’t been seen since Aug. 2. Carved by the late artist Charles Snow, Holmberg estimated its value between $500 and $2,000. But it’s not the money so much as the sentimental meaning that makes the bracelet’s return so important.

Holmberg said he bought the band in Bella and that’s aging.

 from page 1 December or January), no new capital funding has been granted since 2005, apart from the all-day kindergarten additions and modulars announced in June. That leaves hundreds of Surrey’s high school students learning in portable classrooms this year. Fraser Heights Secondary, for example, has 16 portables, while Panorama Ridge Secondary has 11. “There was nothing for secondaries at all,” said Surrey Board of Education chair Laurae McNally. She did, however, laud the education minister for providing a $2-million grant in July to reimburse the district for money spent on portables. Until then, Surrey had been spending about $100,000 per portable out of its operating budget, diverting money away from school programs and services. The biggest change this school year is that about 70 per cent of Surrey schools are offering full-day kindergarten.

A new six-lane Pattullo Bridge could open as early as 2015, according to TransLink. Officials there say they will work to fast-track the new span over the Fraser River. Spokesperson Ken Hardie said there’s potential – depending on the outcome of the bidding process – for contractors, crews and equipment now working on the new Port Mann Bridge to shift over to the Pattullo once the Highway 1 project is finished in 2013. Open houses are slated for later this month in Surrey and New Westminster on the design of the bridge approaches. The biggest change is on the New West side, where TransLink’s preferred option is to switch access from Royal Avenue to Front Street. There would also be access via East Columbia and McBride Boulevard. On the Surrey side, Hardie said it’s anticipated the new Pattullo, which would be built just upstream of the existing one, will connect to the South Fraser Perimeter Road. There would also be connections to 128 Street and Scott Road. More details are expected at the two

opinion Peace Arch News Published at White Rock by Black Press Ltd.


Party’s over for Campbell t is up to ordinary members of the B.C. Liberal Party to tell the premier his time is up. That’s the message from Scott Nelson, a longtime Liberal and former mayor of Williams Lake. He has called on Premier Gordon Campbell to announce he will retire, sooner rather than later. Nelson’s public challenge of the premier is significant for several reasons. First, he has worked closely with the premier since he became B.C. Liberal leader. Second, he is appealing to B.C. Liberals to keep the coalition together – the group of people from various federal parties who must work together in B.C., if they want to stay in power provincially. Third, he is asking B.C. Liberal members to stay within the party and vote, in a secret ballot, on whether Campbell should remain leader. This latter point is significant. The B.C. Liberal Party constitution gives each member a chance to vote in the leadership review issue in meetings of local constituencies. Most of those meetings will be held in the next six weeks. The results of the secret ballot on the leadership will be announced at the party convention in November. If Campbell gets anything less that two-thirds support, he will have little choice but to resign. Joe Clark, who had sat briefly as prime minister in 1979, threw the leadership of the Progressive Conservatives open when he got two-thirds support from party members in a leadership review in 1982. Clark set a standard that future leaders are wise to adhere to. Unlike Clark, Campbell would not likely compete for the leadership again. He doesn’t need to. As Nelson says, he has accomplished a lot and done much that is positive for B.C. Unfortunately, the way his government has handled the HST has been his worst fumble politically and there is no way he can fix the mess. It is best left to others – and those within the party who have not been in cabinet and who can bring a fresh viewpoint to the challenge, are the ones the public are most likely to trust. Nelson’s main point is that if the B.C. Liberals don’t do something about the leadership this fall, it will be too late. He is correct. The B.C. Conservatives are organizing, and even if they do not mount much of a challenge in the next election, they are sure to split the centre-right vote. That will bring the NDP into power. While many have no problem with that, others do. Nelson’s message is aimed squarely at them.

all provinces, including Alberta, which has no provincial sales tax to merge with. B.C. officials watched developments in Ontario and updated the minister’s briefing papers, because that’s what they do every day, on a wide variety of issues. Hansen either didn’t see these communications or didn’t remember them. NDP leader Carole James termed this the “dog ate my homework” defence. The documents confirm that Ontario was negotiating, and getting special exemptions and a transition payment of more than $4 billion. They do not show negotiations with B.C. during the critical time. This is important because it determines whether B.C. finance ministry officials did their jobs in a professional fashion. I’ll remind you that Delaney and Vander Zalm were quick to claim that Elections B.C. officials were corrupt, after they delayed the anti-HST petition to see the results of a court challenge. If that were true, it would have been the biggest political scandal in B.C. history, since that office presides over party registrations and campaign finance rules. The Zalmoids dropped that one quickly, and now they’re on to the next baseless claim of Third World-style corruption. Judge our politicians as you will, but let’s not drag our whole democratic system down with false allegations. There is more news in these documents, such as the negative shortterm impact of the HST that the B.C. Liberals ignored. More on that later.

Waste worst in Dual track public sector unrealistic Editor: Re: Year-long MRI wait too long: patient, Sept. 1. An MRI machine costs between $1 and $3 million. And yet the hospital can afford to have it sit idle for 16 hours of the day, and weekends, of course. McDonald’s restaurant is open 24 hours a day and I’m sure their building and equipment didn’t cost that much. Only in the public sector can such waste occur. Can the hospital not hire two more people? Even if they cost $100 per hour, the hospital would be ahead $10,000 per day at $825 per scan. They are constantly harping about cutbacks, but I just showed them how to make over $3 million per year! John Bootsma, White Rock

Editor: Re: High stakes for Fraser Downs if tracks merge, Aug. 25 PAN online. Reporter Jeff Nagel wrote a good article that touches on some of the options for horse racing in general, but he does not know all the problems involved. A dual track would force both breeds onto training facilities offtrack. There are nowhere near the number of training facilities available to train both breeds. The cost of building such a facility is costprohibitive. The standardbreds need to train on a yearly basis to just get colts ready to race, let alone getting the older ones ready to race again. At present, we train at Fraser Downs in preparation for the coming meet. At present, the track, in order to

facilitate thoroughbreds, would have to be made larger, and there is not sufficient room as it is now and have a barn area, too. Nagel also speaks of upgrades Great Canadian Gaming Corp. has done to racing facilities. I would love to see these upgrades. I train at Fraser Downs! As to advertising, etc., we of the harness sector were told the BC Lottery Corp. had taken this over, but recently learned they have already spent their budget on the thoroughbred meet. To date, we have seen no advertising for the upcoming Fraser Downs meet even though we will be starting Oct. 1. The idea of a dual track at Fraser Downs is not realistic. These are two separate forms of racing horses with completely differing needs. I would also like to hear more on the recent resignation of two key B.C. racing committee members. Trust me, Mr. Nagel, you have a lot to learn. I believe your heart is in the right place. Dave Jungquist, Surrey

Ramblings uncalled for Editor: Re: Not high on MLA Hogg, Aug. 27 letters. This letter is in response to letterwriter Jean Moffat’s ramblings about Surrey-White Rock MLA Gordon Hogg, written in response to an Aug. 20 Peace Arch News editorial, Voice of reason could be at risk. I am embarrassed for the letter writer. My advice to her would be to make sure her rants are true before going public with them. And shame on you, PAN, for publishing such garbage.

However, Ms. Moffat’s letter was a persona rant about Gordon Hogg that should have been deleted – not printed. Tracey LaMarre, Surrey

The wake Editor: Re: Upgrades on way for Merklin reservoir, Sept.1. David Rector of Epcor declares that the Merklin high reservoir “is exactly as it was in 1963.” And they are still looking for the “smoking gun?” A roofing system that is 47 years old sounds to me like a weapon that is fully loaded and potentially deadly. The roof failure that Tim Le Riche of Epcor alludes to did not happen overnight and it appears the company has been negligent in its duty to maintain the integrity of the reservoir. I suggest that if an inquiry takes place, Epcor should be questioned about how long they have been aware of the poor state of the roof and why it waited until contamination actually occurred before initiating an upgrade. Grand declarations about not compromising the safety of the community ring hollow in the face of recent events. As with any safety issue, the only effective prevention is practising pro-activity. Sadly, this is seen by many businesses as a drag on the bottom line, and as the water crisis in White Rock illustrates, the customer becomes the victim while the perpetrator re-actively scrambles to fix the problem. Given Epcor’s performance, I am strongly in favour of White Rock hooking into GVRD’s water supply. Pauline Mott, White Rock ■ Re: Councillors criticize E. coli warning, Aug. 27. We’ve all heard the term “Monday Morning Quarterback.” It refers to people who have sat on the couch all day Sunday watching football games. Then on Monday morning, with the benefit of knowing the outcome and slowmotion replay, they talk to anybody who’ll listen about how they could have done it better. It’s a derogatory term because, of course, these guys could not

It’s a lot easier to just talk about the game from the safety of the water cooler, than to make quick decisions with a 250-pound linebacker breathing down your neck. Couns. Doug McLean, Grant Meyer and Lynne Sinclair have taken this sport to a new low – the Wednesday Morning Quarterback. They wait and watch events unfold over the Aug. 20 weekend, observing the people who are really taking action – making notes about how they would do it differently, but actually doing nothing. Then they wait for a couple more days, to make sure the outcome is clear. Finally, on Wednesday morning, they feel safe enough to start complaining about how they think the crisis should have been handled. Not a very impressive display of leadership from these councillors, to say the least. We deserve better. Dave Warren, White Rock

Time to treat water White Rock has prided itself on “having the best water around.” But now that it has been proven wrong, it may be time to acknowledge this misconception and get your water treated – the sooner the better. We are supposedly an advanced society living in the 21st century. I’ve never been able to understand White Rock trying to hang onto its distinct-society status and toughing it out alone, when there is another viable economic option available. Surrey is actually quite progressive and a great place to live and property taxes are considerably lower. And we have clean, safe water that actually tastes pretty good. Jim Francis, Surrey

Please, no chlorine What I would like to know is, if our water supply is being effectively managed, why is it even vulnerable to animals, droppings, etc.? I certainly hope White Rock does not now go overboard and start chlorinating our water. In areas of the world with chlorination,

many install chlorine filters in their homes at significant expense for skin and health reasons. The answer is not chlorine but improved safeguards. We are so fortunate to have one of the most pristine water supplies in the world. Pure water is an increasingly valuable commodity. Let’s not start pouring chemicals into ours. Beverley Cunningham, White Rock

Spread news Here is a simple solution to spreading the word in the case of contaminated-water warnings. If anyone is aware of a waterwarning advisory for their neighbourhood, they could put a red ribbon on their door. Anyone who hasn’t been notified wouldn’t have a red ribbon, so either people would know to knock on their door and tell them, or they might notice their neighbours’ red ribbons and know they should ask for information. We all have an active role to perform in emergency situations. Gillian Roberts, Surrey

Fraser Health to pay for credit monitoring as a result of privacy breach

Data lost with stolen laptop Fraser Health has informed 600 patients their personal information was compromised when an unencrypted laptop computer was stolen from Burnaby Hospital Aug. 21. The computer contained names, birth dates and healthcare numbers of patients who had their breathing rates tested at the hospital.

The laptop was not password protected – contrary to Fraser Health policy, according to health authority spokesperson Marie Nightingale. “There is an investigation underway to determine why it wasn’t,” she said. Nightingale said Fraser Health – which provides health-care services from Burnaby to Hope – is

offering to pay for a one-year subscription to a credit monitoring service of each patient’s choice. Equifax offers such a service for $15 per month, suggesting the slip-up could cost Fraser Health at least $100,000. The laptop has not yet been recovered and a police investigation is continuing. – Jeff Nagel

Runner wins transit test Jeff Nagel Black Press

Kwantlen Polytechnic University students say their beat-thebus race has tested TransLink’s service – and found it wanting. Three students raced Sept. 1 to see who would make the best time from the main Surrey campus in Newton to the Langley campus – one running, one cycling and a third riding the bus. Cyclist John O’Brian, a rep at the Cloverdale campus, won with a time of 59 minutes. Marathon runner Dave Palermo was a surprisingly close second, at 1:06. Dead last was Ashley Fehr, who took an hour and 19 minutes riding the bus.

Caitlin Purvis to seek career in international development

Elgin grad facilitates change in Mexico Hannah Sutherland


Staff Reporter

n Mexican communities covered in graffiti and lacking basic infrastructure such as sidewalks and public spaces, Caitlin Purvis facilitated cleanups and a reforestation that hundreds of locals joined. “They took action and they proved that they can work together to begin making sustainable changes in their communities,” the Elgin Park Secondary grad said. Purvis organized the events as a needs-assesment officer in Colima, where she has been working for the last six months. Peace Arch News reported in June how the 26-year-old was completing an internship – which ended last month – at the Planning Institute for the City of Colima, in her pursuit of a career

Hundreds of locals joined in on the cleanup and reforestation of sidewalks and public spaces, such as this basketball court. Afterwards they celebrated their efforts with a potluck dinner (below). in international development. The opportunity was offered by Vancouver-based organization Sustainable Cities, which received a Canadian International Development Agency grant to support internship programs in five countries for three years. In Colima, Purvis’ goal was to see residents improve their marginalized

communities. She gathered information on how public spaces were used, evaluating their designs and conditions; facilitated workshops for residents to create a vision for their communities’ future; and hosted public-space cleanups. At the latter, Purvis said, 10 local youths who are in a gang took part with “great enthusiasm.” “It was a beautiful thing to see so many people of different ages and backgrounds coming together to create positive changes in their community,” she said via email

from Mexico. In her communications with locals, Purvis said she learned that their most pressing concerns were security, the condition of roads and sidewalks and the need to have more infrastructure, such as secondary schools, nearby. “All communities lack activities for youth to partake in and residents are concerned by local gangs, do not feel close to their neighbours and often lack faith in their ability to induce positive change,” she said. “Residents are eager to have public schools and libraries, more frequent public transportation, places for children to play, security in the evenings, fixed streets and garbage cans... in their neighbourhoods.” In a period of two months, Purvis saw residents go from having few – if any – visions for the future of their communities to having elaborate plans. “In hard copy we have various maps of public spaces drawn by residents of all ages, as well as written copies of what they would like,” she said, noting locals’ interest in making changes snowballed. “The more often we witness positive changes, no matter if they are big or small, the more likely we are to follow suit. Sometimes all that is necessary

is just a little push or someone coming in from the outside to fill us with some inspiration.” Now that her internship is complete, two new interns will take over the project for another six months. Purvis said she was offered to continue her work for an additional three months in other marginalized neighbourhoods, but hasn’t secured funding to make it possible. Her plans now are to fly to Ottawa for a sustainable cities conference beginning Sept. 12, where she will sit on a panel for youth and share her experience with various delegates. Afterwards, she wants to look for employment in the field. Purvis said she learned a great deal from her time in Mexico, including about people’s ability to change just as ideas do, and that strength grows in numbers. “It is never too late to begin correcting our past errors such as our poor treatment of the environment. We need simply to begin taking the first step in generating a vision and then proceed by taking action. “No matter how small and insignificant we may think we are or may feel at times, every individual has an impact on this world.”

Saki Serizawa’s hair to be used for wigs

Close shave for cancer Hannah Sutherland


Staff Reporter

When Saki Serizawa shaved her head last week, it wasn’t just to support cancer patients who have lost their hair due to treatments. The 19-year-old White Rock resident was also making a point about the focus society puts on physical appearance – the affects of which she witnessed while living in Quebec a couple months ago. “I would see these girls trying so hard to look pretty so I sort of wanted to go against that,” she said. “It seems like these days you hear about little girls wearing makeup and it’s become such a matter of looking pretty rather than having goals or doing nice things. “Personality has become such a backburner issue; everyone’s so concerned about looking nice.” In defiance of the mainstream definition of beauty, Serizawa had her locks – which fell well past her shoulders – shaved at Mareth’s Hair Studio in South Surrey Sept. 2. Afterwards, she took her chopped hair to the Canadian Cancer Society’s White Rock office, which plans to send the donation to a Vancouver organization that makes wigs for those battling cancer. Serizawa said shaving her head and donating her hair were two things on her bucket list, and inspiration for the latter came after reading about an eight-year-old girl who cut her hair for cancer patients a couple years ago. Serizawa was reminded of the young girl’s act when her sister’s friend recently did the same thing. While Serizawa hasn’t been significantly impacted by the disease – her grandfather was diagnosed “a long time ago,” but is now cancerfree – she felt the need to give back. “It’s a gigantic issue that always seems to be around,” she said, noting her family and friends backed her decision. “Everyone was really supportive of it and really encouraging about it so that really helped.” Serizawa – who

2 011 C O M M U N I T Y G R A N T S The City of Surrey is now accepting applications for 2011 ďŹ nancial grants from non-proďŹ t groups or organizations. What kinds of organizations are eligible? Organizations will normally be expected to: • have an active governing body composed of volunteers, with paid staff excluded from voting membership; • have stable, ongoing ďŹ nancial support; and • extend their service to the general public in Surrey, not excluding anyone by reason of race, religion or ethnic background. Who chooses the successful grant applications? City Council has established a Grants Evaluation Committee, consisting of four city staff members, to review all applications and make recommendations on grant payment priorities. The ďŹ nal decision on all grant applications is made by City Council. The Grants Evaluation Committee will review and recommend grant payments based on the following criteria: • The need for the project, the number of residents beneďŹ ting from the grant and the value to the community; • The absence of identiďŹ able or competing services, programs or facilities in the community; • The cost per resident, funding sources and ďŹ nancial stability of the organization; • The effectiveness and quality of the proposed program, project or event; • The history of the organization, including past services and programs; and • The suitability for one-time only funding for speciďŹ c programs, capital projects or special events. Grants will not normally be recommended for travel, operating deďŹ cits, or services that are the responsibility of other levels of government. Any organization which receives a grant should not view the grant as an automatic source of funding in the following years. An evaluation of the use of the Surrey grant must be submitted at the end of the program, project or event. When is the deadline for grant applications: All grants requests must be submitted on an ofďŹ cial application form and received at the ofďŹ ce of the City Clerk not later than 4:30 p.m., September 30, 2010. Application forms and additional information may be obtained by contacting: City of Surrey, OfďŹ ce of the City Clerk 14245 – 56 Avenue, Surrey, B.C.

Don’t ! just mask d e v o M e the PAIN v ’ e W September 7, 2010 temporarily!

Cyclists unite Forty-four cyclists united in one cause – to raise money and awareness in the battle against childhood cancer – will set off Thursday (Sept. 9) from White Rock on the Sears National Kids Cancer Ride, a more than 7,000-kilometre journey across Canada. The riders, who will traverse the country relay-style, will be joined along the way by thousands of other community cyclists who will ride shorter distances, all united in the goal to improve the quality of life for children living with cancer and their families. To start, the team will dip their wheels in the Pacific and depart White Rock, aiming to arrive in Halifax Sept. 23, where a second ceremonial dip of their wheels in the Atlantic will signal the end of the ride.

Raising the caution flag Grant Granger


Black Press

Jen Beauregard struggles to find the right word. It’s a challenge the 24-year-old Abbotsford woman grapples with every time she speaks – one of many adversities resulting from being hit by an SUV while directing traffic at a construction site along Highway 10 in Delta last September. “I don’t think people really understand the dangers that can happen to them,” said Beauregard, who will appear in a WorkSafeBC video set to hit the Internet this weekend. “It seems like everybody feels they’re invincible and that nothing ever happens to them. “I want them to be aware of the dangers that could potentially cause death.” Beauregard was hit by a driver who was texting at the time of the collision. She flew 100 feet out of her boots and landed on her head, or so she’s been told, since she can’t remember the incident. “I trusted people would obey my signs,” said Beauregard. “I just trusted somebody would stop. I wasn’t aware that some people would not be paying attention to us.” She was in a coma for six days and a hospital for two months. On top of the amnesia – Beauregard can’t even remember how long she worked as a flagger – both her legs were broken, her right arm was snapped in five places, metal plates had to be inserted to hold her pelvis together, all her ribs were cracked, her spleen was ruptured and she needed facial reconstruction. She had trouble standing, sitting or even lying down for any amount of time because any position was excruciating. “I lost all independence. I couldn’t go to the washroom by myself, I couldn’t change myself, couldn’t feed myself. “Every aspect of life was challenging,” said Beauregard, who now uses a cane to get around. “Just the fact I walk I appreciate, because I was told I wouldn’t be able to walk.” According to WorkSafeBC, 73 claims were filed for flag persons struck by vehicles from 2005 to 2009. The death toll increased on July 15 when Donald Cain, a 49-year-

old Langley man, was killed while working on a Lougheed Highway road-widening project just west of Mission. Katherine Keras, owner of Pro Safe Traffic Services, was Cain’s boss and she feels the carnage has to stop. She says the government needs to establish stronger regulations and there needs to be increased police enforcement. “The errors and the driver skills are unbelievable,” said Keras during a break setting up a job on South Fraser Way Wednesday. “It’s like we made them an Indy track and they’re just whipping through because we’ve got some cones out. “Our laws are definitely too soft, too lax.” Keras maintained that contractors looking to cut costs often do so by reducing the number of flag people. “We really have nobody on our side,” said Keras. “All these people putting their life in danger for 12 bucks an hour, 15 or 18, it’s not enough.” “Drivers don’t care,” B.C. flaggers spokeswoman Diane Herback told CTV News this week. “They speed, talk on their cellphones, and drink and drive.” Herback is looking for police to step up enforcement, and if they don’t, flaggers will take action. “The public needs to realize that we have a lot of power. We could shut a bridge down in about 10 minutes.” In the past year, WorkSafeBC

has expanded its Slow Down campaign. Signs along road construction sites now feature kids quoting slogans such as, “My mommy (or) daddy works here.” “We’ve added the personal dimension,” said Al Johnson, WorkSafeBC regional director of construction. He also is calling on traffic control companies and the contractors that hire them to better supervise the controllers to make sure they’re doing what they’re trained to do. “You think it’s an easy job just standing out there telling people to slow down. But you have to have eye contact with the drivers, you have to have your wits about you moving trucks around, there’s a lot to keep track of,” said Johnson. Meanwhile, Beauregard has always wanted to be an elementary teacher. Before the accident, she spent six years getting her education degree, but hadn’t gone into the classroom to get certification. Now the plan is to attend the University of the Fraser Valley to regain what she learned in the hope of being certified next year. She’s also created a UFV Safety Awareness Club and is planning a workplace safety awareness event on the campus for Oct. 4 and 5, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. “I thought if I had died I would have wanted someone to raise awareness to prevent this from happening to somebody else.”

Land-farmed salmon making splash in Valley

Notice of AGM The Community of Lights Events Society Monday, September 13, 2010, 7:00pm Centennial Arena Lounge 14600 North Bluff Road, White Rock

Jeff Nagel Black Press

Bruce Swift dips a net into a watery vat and pulls up a crayfish, its claws pinching like a miniature lobster. The freshwater crustaceans grow well here and are destined to be the key ingredient in a bowl of crayfish bisque at a high-end Vancouver eatery. But they aren’t the focus of the Agassiz fish farmer’s operation. Nor is the neighbouring hydroponic vat brimming with watercress or nearby plots growing wasabi and garlic. They’re all happy byproducts of Swift’s main enterprise – farming coho salmon on land. He and his wife, MaryLou, both biologists, hand-feed the more than 2,000 juvenile coho swimming in large freshwater tanks in their barns. It all happens far from salt water on their fiveacre property, which looks like any other modest Fraser Valley hobby farm. Rather than discharge the ammonia-laden wastewater from the salmon tanks as effluent, it becomes nutrients for the other crops and for algae that in turn feeds the crayfish. “You’ve got to use those nutrients,” Swift says, adding he’d otherwise be like a cattle farmer who makes no use of his manure. The ability to pair salmon with companion crops is one of the attractions of this nouveau aquaculture. “You don’t need a lot of room and you can be as innovative as you want,” he said. If that’s not green enough, the Swifts are working towards a closed-loop system that recycles all water, eliminating the need to draw from a local aquifer. The coho eat feed made mainly from locally sourced herring meal. No antibiotics or vaccines are used. And unlike oceanbased net pen farms, there’s no risk of pollution, disease spread, the proliferation

‘There’s so much interest’  from page 24 Today, that’s changing. The couple’s coho are an exclusive delicacy on the menu at posh urban eateries like C Restaurant and the Raincity Grill, where they’re praised as local, sustainable, healthy and green. “There’s so much interest in this land-based salmon farming,” Swift said. “A lot of people want to use our coho.” The growing demand has the couple contemplating a significant expansion, possibly beyond their current specialty niche market. Recently, members of the Cohen Commission were at the site on a field trip, learning about the viability of raising salmon that don’t depend on the ecology of the ocean or river. The commission will hear intense criticism of net pens and growing calls for a shift to land-based systems. A new report from the Save Our Salmon Marine Conservation Foundation concluded there’s a good business case for closed-containment fish farming on land, judging it both eco-friendly and profitable. Still, Swift won’t criticize the saltwater net pens used by conventional salmon farms. “We don’t do this because we have some agenda against salmon farming,” Swift said. Growing salmon in fresh water tanks has its differences and tradeoffs, he notes. The absence of wild ocean food means the land-farmed coho flesh is white in colour. As a result, Swift adds a naturally derived pigment to their food to give them the characteristic red coho colour. No customer will buy a whitefleshed salmon, he explains. They can also be grown on entirely vegetarian grain-based feed, but that

Bruce Swift grows crayfish in addition to coho salmon. subtly alters the taste. Swift uses coho, not sockeye, because they grow faster – from egg to market weight in two years – and are less prone to stress and disease. The Swifts aren’t just pioneers but also apostles of fish farming, helping others get into the business. And there’s plenty of interest. Alberta livestock farmers want their help converting pig barns to farm salmon or even a tropical Asian fish called barramundi. Several B.C. First Nations see potential to employ band members to farm salmon. The Swifts are even working with a Hutterite community in Montana. Much of the coho they grow are for brood stock to produce eggs to set up new operators. “We’re almost creating an industry,” Swift said. “Over the next 10 years, I think you’ll see a lot of land-based salmon farms. As we yearn for a fish diet, a healthier omega-3 diet, there’s a lot more than just rainbow trout that we can use.”

INSTITUTE 112 - 1656 Martin Dr, White Rock


Clinical Somatic Therapy founder of the field of Somatics, has developed a therapy that can reduce or eliminate pain, stiffness and fatigue, and improve flexibility and ease of movement. He explains, "During the course of our lives, our sensory-motor systems continually respond to daily stresses and traumas with specific muscular reflexes. These reflexes, repeatedly triggered, create habitual muscular contractions, which we cannot voluntarily relax. These muscular contractions have become so deeply involuntary and unconscious that eventually we no longer remember how to move freely. The result is stiffness, soreness and restricted range of motion." Clinical Somatic Therapy is a system of teaching the body to regain conscious control of the musculature.

The therapist uses hands-on treatment techniques to actively control the shortening and lengthening of the muscles which, with a series of treatments can reduce pain, correct postural misalignment and restore muscle tone. Then the therapist teaches the client a series of gentle exercises that can continue to reduce and maintain the improvements in the musculature. These exercises, with a little practice, take only a few minutes each day. For more information on Somatics or any other treatment modality, or go book an appointment with any of our therapists, please call.

No longer warn just by ladies or emo kids, skinny jeans are being sported by everyone from Kanye to Zac Efron. But like the name implies, one should have a slender build to pull off this emerging trend. If the jean doesn’t flatter your body, stick to a bootcut or relaxed fit.

Making the choice for childcare I f this economy is helping to solidify anything, it could very well be reinforcing the need for two working adults in a household to help make ends meet. For parents of children and tweens who are going back to work this fall, the time has come to consider after school childcare options. A new option for Peninsula parents is GoKidz Children’s Centre – a progressive and unique approach to before-and -after school care – geared towards children in Grades 1through 6. Ivan and Carolina Rojas have been busy putting the finishing touches on the bright and child-friendly facility, located at 2255 King George Blvd. “We are really excited to get up and running,” said Ivan on opening the 1600-square-foot facility

Ivan Rojas plays a game of foosball with sisters Karitizza and Katalina inside the GoKidz Children’s Centre. this upcoming school year. While the modern centre is committed to providing a safe and comfortable supervised program, it isn’t your average, run-of-the mill daycare facility. “We are proud to provide opportunities for recreation, relaxation and creative

learning experiences,” adds the father of three. Ivan, a football coach for the South Surrey Titans, and Carolina, who volunteers at Sunnyside Elementary School, came up with the concept for the unique approach to childcare after asking their own

children as well as those around them about what their ideal childminding centre would be like. The result – a modern, state-ofthe-art centre that features a climbing wall, foosball and ping pong tables, air hockey, the latest in Lego, arts and crafts, music, indoor and outdoor physical activities as well as video games that encourage excercise. “It’s pretty unique,“ says Ivan of the centre, which is partnering with Kate Wright from Champion Cheerleading and Master Davidson from Seung-ri WTTU Black Belt Academy. Other offerings include self defence lessons by a takewondo instructor, enducational field trips and Amber Alert GPS systems, which are personal tracking devices for parents to locate their children.

Considering back safety Tips on choosing the best new backpack for your child Whether it sports a cartoon superhero like Batman, pop star Miley Cyrus or is covered in band logo patches, a backpack can be the ultimate way for students to express their unique personality. While style is surely detrimental to little tykes, tweens and teens, safety should also play a deciding factor in the purchase of a brand new backpack. When it comes to backpack safety, most people tend to think about injuries caused by a heavy backpack or one worn improperly. However, there are other dangers associated with backpacks and caution should be used. Backpacks come in all shapes and sizes and can be a handy tool for students or adults. When worn correctly, with weight evenly distributed across the back and shoulders, backpacks can be safer and more effective than using a purse or briefcase. But many people wear overly loaded backpacks slung over one shoulder, which can pose problems with posture and lead to back issues. In addition to the physical strain backpacks can cause, they can be a danger in other ways. Many people fail to recognize how much space a backpack can take up. Backpacks change the way individuals walk. Because the person is carrying around extra weight, he or she may lose balance or trip and fall, especially when going down steps. To avoid these secondary hazards from backpacks, choose a lightweight backpack. Canvas backpacks are generally lighter in weight than leather backpacks. Do not add extra weight unnecessarily. A great place to find a new backpack for your younger kids is Cotton ‘N’ Crayon in


Ocean Park. Their popular line of Crocodile Creek backpacks fits kids from pre-schooler age to around Grade 3 or 4. These brightlycoloured backpacks with padded shoulder straps have dinosaurs, spaceships and cars and trucks for boys, and flowers, horses and ballet dancers for girls. They also come with a matching lunch kit and stainless steel water bottle.

Five ways to pack a ‘greener’ lunch Many parents of school-aged children are interested in packing a healthy and environmentally friendly lunch for their children each day. However, they may have questions regarding how to do just that. This is the season for school lunches, as thousands of students will be heading back to the classroom ... and lunchroom. For those who will be bringing a lunch from home, there are ways to make it healthy for the body and the planet.

1. Choose foods the child will

eat. Nothing is more wasteful than a lunch that ends up in the trash rather than the stomach. Instead of experimenting with foods that one would hope a child will eat, select healthy items that have a past track record for success.


Skip the brown bags. Certain children may relish the idea of bringing in a character-themed lunch box. Older children may scoff at the idea. But the fact is that disposable paper lunch bags are wasteful and reusable lunch carriers are much more eco-friendly. Today there are

lunch bags that are subdued in color and style and are often insulated to keep food at the right temperature. 3. Select organic foods. Whether the child is bringing in a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or a pizza on a pita, choose foods that are organically grown or local. Supermarkets now stock the shelves with plenty of organic options that are free from pesticides and harmful growing practices. These foods are healthier and more sustainable.


Use reusable containers. Rather than packing a sandwich in a plastic baggie or a piece of plastic wrap, select a series of sandwich holders, containers and the like that can transport the lunch contents to and from school. Sure they’ll have to be washed each night, but children won’t be contributing to extra waste.

BBQ Q Dinner er





Buy favorite foods in bulk. If the child loves cereal treats or whole-grain granola bars, buy the big box and store it in the pantry. This saves on packaging and extra trips to the store, both of which are wasteful.

Shamanic exhibit Agents of Transformation: Reclaiming the Power of Grandmothers is an exhibition at the Amelia Douglas Gallery (Douglas College, New Westminster) combining the inspired visual creations of Crescent Beach artist, dancer and teacher Elizabeth Carefoot and the literary creativity of Ocean Park’s Virginia Gillespie. Running from Sept. 16 to Nov. 1, the exhibition features Shamanic robes and objects created by Carefoot to honour the traditions of her Siberian grandmother, plus poetry, stories and soundscape inspired by the pieces and created by Gillespie – who also draws inspiration from the high plains residents of her Wyoming forebears, including great-grandmother Maude McCoy, a Western pioneer and aquaintance of Buffalo Bill. Opening reception Sept. 16 is from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. and will feature a dance and chanting performance by Victoria Oginski and a performance by drumming group The Drum Well, led by Billy Knutson.

Second Sight Artist/photographer George Omorean’s solo show Second Sight – Photographs Taken With Rescued Film Cameras, runs until Oct. 1 at Semiahmoo Arts Gallery (White Rock and District Community Arts Council) 90-1959 152 St. The long-time Peninsula resident, who teaches fine-art photography and digital media arts at Aldergrove Community Secondary School, has always been fascinated by old film cameras. “One of my passions is finding and reusing film cameras, allowing them to ‘see’ again, if only for a single exposure,” he said. “I love to consider the mystery of what a forgotten camera has seen through its eye – family celebrations, romantic occasions, tragic events, or even just a simple moment caught in a particular place in time.” Images in the exhibition have been taken with cameras ranging from vintage to more modern, and Omorean has processed the film personally, producing prints on fibrebased paper to archival standards. For more information, call 604-536-8333.

…on the Semiahmoo Peninsula

Team hits ice Friday against rival Langley Chiefs

Eagles optimistic as season set to begin Nick Greenizan


Sports Reporter

he great thing about a new season, it’s often said, is that everybody goes into it optimistic, regardless of how the previous season ended. And with just a few days to go before the start of the B.C. Hockey League season, every team in the league – from the champs to the basement dwellers – is likely feeling pretty good about their chances. The Surrey Eagles are no different. In fact, with an entire new regime running the show – from new owners Chuck Westgard, Gary Nylund and Scott Bradley to new head coach Matt Erhart – there may even be more optimism than usual coming from the team’s dressing room in the corner of South Surrey Arena. “It’s really positive right now, and there’s a good vibe in the dressing room,” said Erhart, who still has a few cuts to make before his club opens the season at home Friday against the Langley Chiefs. “We worked hard this summer to change the culture of the team, and now we’re just trying to find the right mix of guys.” Last year, Surrey finished 30-24-0-6 – good for fifth place in the BCHL’s Coastal Conference – and made the playoffs, but was bounced in the first-round by the Langley Chiefs. Westgard’s group has made it clear ever since taking control of the team in June that a middle-of-the-pack record and a hasty playoff exit isn’t good enough. “Our expectations are high. Very, very high,” said Nylund earlier this summer. And since his appointment in June, Erhart – a former assistant under former head coach Shane Kuss – has brought a handful of new players into the fold to help further that goal. One of Erhart’s more important pick- province, but he scored a goal in each of ups was Jeff Vanderlugt, a six-foot-three, our last two (exhibition) games,” Erhart 220-pound power forward who will not said.

We’re preparing our team as though they aren’t here, and if something happens, then we’ll figure it out then,” Erhart said. Defencemen Paul Levarsky and Josh Pineiro, both 20-year-olds last year, have graduated also from the junior ranks. The team has lost a handful of forwards off last year’s roster, too. Leading scorer Andrew Wallace has left for Bowling Green University, while fellow vet see page 46

Core group of vets return  from page 45 erans Grant Toulmin, Chris Santiago and Adam Basford have all graduated from the league. Second-year junior player Manraj Hayer – who had an injury-plagued rookie year in Surrey – has also left the team, electing instead to join Everett of the WHL. Up front, returnees include Tyler Morley, Erik Cooper, Jamus Lane, Bradley McGowan and Richard Vanderhoek. “It’s nice to have a familiarity with a lot of the guys... we’re really happy with our core group,” Erhart said. Twenty-year-old goalie Vinny Lessard also returns for his third year – and second as the starter – and will be backed up by 18-year-old Andrew Hunt, a Surrey native who spent last year with the Jr. B Delta Icehawks. “We’re expecting big things out of Vinny this year, with it being his

20-year-old season,” Erhart said. Though the Eagles won just one of four pre-season games heading into the season, Erhart was still impressed with what he saw from his troops. And, he – like his players – can’t wait to start playing games that mean something in the standings. “We’re all really excited – we wish it was Sept. 10 right now so we could get going.”

Home opener The puck drops Friday at 7 p.m., but festivities outside South Surrey Arena begin at 5:30 p.m. Outside the rink, there will be music, a barbecue from M&M Meats and face-painting for the Eagles’ youngest fans. The new ownership group will also be on hand to greet fans and seasonticket holders. Friday’s game will also be broadcast live on TEAM 1040.

n July 1, 2010, the new Civil Supreme Court Rules and the new Family Supreme Court Rules came into effect in British Columbia and replaced the prior Supreme Court Rules. The Supreme Court Rules are the rules established to standardize the conduct of any court action being commenced or held in the Supreme Court of British Columbia. They have now been separated into the Rules for family matters and the Rules for all other civil matters. The Rules specifies the procedures and timelines to be followed in an action and the format of the forms that will be accepted by the Court. Whether you are starting, continuing or responding to an action which was started before or after July 1, 2010, the court action now falls under the preview of appropriate new Supreme Court Rules and will be regulated by them. You should obtain and review a copy of the new Court Rules pertaining to your action. A copy of the new Rules can be obtained at the British Columbia Attorney General’s website under the Court Services Branch tab under “Other Matters” and referencing the Supreme Court tab. Also on this site, the Ministry of the Attorney General has provided most of the forms in a fillable PDF format for public access. If you have any questions concerning the new Supreme Court Rules and how they apply to you, you should consult the Supreme Court of British Columbia website, the Legal Services Society of British Columbia website or your lawyer.

ASHLEY, Gordon Stewart November 14, 1918 - August 29, 2010 Gordon, a resident of White Rock since 1972, passed away peacefully in his sleep August 29, 2010 at the age of 91 years. He was predeceased by his parents, Stewart and Agnes and special friend Ivy Lloyd. Gordon was born in Vancouver. He earned a Bachelor of Commerce Degree from the University of Alberta in 1940.

He was Treasurer for the Fraternal Order of Eagles Aerie No. 3029 Blaine, WA. and a member of the Royal Canadian Legion #8 in White Rock. Gordon’s passions were photography and the History of Transportation involving Steamships, Trains, Aircraft and especially Automobiles. A very caring person, Gordon never missed an opportunity to do a favour for anyone he knew. All Finance Ministers would receive a letter detailing how their latest budgets affected the lives of low income earners. For their compassionate care a special thanks to Dr. J. O’Brien and the caregivers and nurses at Westminster House. Gordon requested that no service be held. He will be missed by all who knew him.
