an atmosphere friendly to economic growth, and if major transportation improvements are in the works. While Watts is pumped by Surrey’s ranking, her political opponents worry the city is becoming too gentrified as many Surrey residents now cannot afford to buy their own place here. Gary Robinson, who’s running for a council seat under the Surrey Civic Coalition, says the city’s current administration has “obviously lost touch with the regular folks in Surrey, and regular people in general. They’re part of the elite now.” Robinson said council should “stop thinking all that matters is the future” and look after residents’ needs now. “They seem to be in a race not only to invest in all this development but to sell all Surrey’s assets,” he said. “It leaves the regular guy wondering where the hell he’s going to live next.” Robinson said the Surrey Development Corporation should use the city’s land to build affordable housing and rental units. “Instead, they’re using it to build ‘Mega-Watts’ projects,” he said. “She sits up on her hillside surveying her kingdom. This council doesn’t hold her accountable.” see SURREY’S GROWTH › page 3

SURREY – Surrey’s real estate market is on a tear. The city is set to outperform other B.C. cities over the next three to five years in terms of real estate investment. That’s the word from the Real Estate Investment Network (REIN), the country’s leading real estate research organization. Its latest report, Top British Columbia Investment Towns 2011, ranks Surrey number-one out of hundreds of cities and towns in B.C. “I’m certainly honoured to receive that distinction for the city,” Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts said. Vancouver sits at 11th spot. Watts noted that REIN’s findings were based on “significant” criteria. “We hit the mark on each one. We’re on the right track, doing the right things and making the right decisions.” REIN considered factors such as the pace of growth and whether infrastructure and the employment rate are keeping up. It also looked at whether Surrey will benefit from an economic or real estate “ripple effect,” if its politicians have fostered

Election – White Rock

Coun. Lynne Sinclair wants the mayor’s chair White Rock mayoral candidate says she would revitalize uptown centre

Surrey’s growth a factor in report’s ranking ‹ from page 1

WHITE ROCK – After serving the City of White Rock as a councillor, Lynne Sinclair is ready to slip into the mayor’s chair. “I believe White Rock needs a strong leader, and I believe I have the experience and knowledge of White Rock and the passion for White Rock and the confidence of the current council to be that person to lead,” Sinclair said in an interview with the Now at Laura’s café at Five Corners. Sinclair is one of three candidates running to be the next mayor of the seaside city. Also running are Larry Anschell and Wayne Baldwin. After Mayor Catherine Ferguson announced she wouldn’t be seeking re-election after one term in office, Sinclair said several of her council-mates urged her to make a bid for the city’s top job. Although they didn’t always see eye to eye on the key issues facing the city, the general consensus was that she’s “the natural one” to lead council over the next three years. “Not all of us were on the same side of issues in the last election. I think that’s a credit to my kind of leadership and style of working with people to bring people together,” she said. Though the current council is often accused of being dysfunctional, Sinclair dismisses the notion. “We’re totally working together,” she said, and points to a list of accomplishments over the past term as evidence of harmony. The list includes a multi-million dollar facelift of the museum, a new centre for active living, a partnership with Fraser Health aimed at preventative health, creating “miles and miles” of sidewalk, safe pedestrian crossings and cleaning up the city’s parks. If she’s elected mayor, Sinclair’s priorities would include revitalizing the uptown centre. She noted the city hosted a design charrette earlier this year and the team, which included developers, business leaders and citizens, came up with a concept that features pedestrianfriendly pathways and green space as well as inclusion of tall buildings with a sensitivity to view corridors. “It might not be perfect but it’s what we all worked on very hard,” she said. Her growth strategy includes the creation of more affordable housing in the city, especially for young families. Aided by a $5,000 grant she secured from the

Lynne Sinclair is after the mayor’s seat in White Rock. (Photo: KEVIN HILL) Federation of Canadian Municipalities, the city hosted a seminar attended by key stakeholders tasked with developing a strategy to address the issue. The session culminated in a report that confirms an emerging trend in the region, which is that more and more families are struggling as a result of rising taxes and skyrocketing property prices. “This isn’t just about poverty, this is about working families in White Rock that are really feeling the squeeze. There are people

increasingly at risk of having to move. It’s getting really, really unaffordable for them,” Sinclair said. As a result of the seminar, Sinclair said the city is now poised to bring forward a bylaw that calls for the inclusion of an affordable housing component as part of re-zoning applications. “It keeps our city vibrant and interesting and inclusive, and any social planner, any land planner will tell you that the best cities in the world are diverse,” she said.

Watts said city hall has been working hard to build investors’ confidence and that doesn’t only include well-heeled developers. “This means families,” she said. “There’s been significant growth in Cloverdale, South Surrey, Newton, Guildford, Fleetwood and the city centre as well.” REIN’s president, Don R. Campbell, said Surrey is the 12th largest city in Canada. “In the next decade, the city will continue to see explosive population growth, one of the most important factors to consider when deciding where to invest,” he said. Watts said Surrey has one of the lowest tax rates in the country and the secondlowest business tax in the region. “We offer high-quality, efficient services. We’re creating thousands of new jobs and businesses and building world-class facilities in each of our town centres.” Watts noted that REIN also ranked Surrey fourth of all Canadian cities in terms of investment in 2010. Stephanie Ryan, also running under the SCC banner, said that while rising real estate prices are good for the economy, this also prices many people out of the market. “I think I’m going to be priced out of the market pretty soon,” she said. “We need some balance,” Ryan said, calling for “inclusionary” zoning that will see more affordable housing incorporated into the city’s projects. “If you have five kids, a small room on the 18th floor isn’t super appropriate.”

SURREY – Bob Campbell, vice chairman of Surrey’s Environmental Advisory Committee, brought forth issues with the city’s current recycling contract in a Sept. 28 meeting. In the meeting minutes, Campbell said there are no targets set in the contract. He said the contract should use the strictest language, including industrystandard targets, to ensure commercially reasonable efforts to minimize garbage. “We think that when citizens of Surrey put recycling in their blue box, that they believe that those articles are going to the best and highest use,” Campbell told the Now. “The bottom line is that we were not able to find out exactly what performance was being achieved.” In the meeting minutes, Campbell said the contract does not require regular reporting from the contractor; however, he noted the contractor is obligated to provide reporting when it is requested by the city.

Campbell said the city has absolved itself of hiring the entity responsible for sorting the recyclables once they have been picked up. He said the city should select the vendor Bob Bose who is sorting the recyclables. “Why isn’t it more transparent?” Campbell asked. In October, the EAC drafted a letter to city staff asking them to consider the issues identified within the contract. “It’s time sensitive,” said Coun. Bob Bose, the council representative on the committee. “They’re in the process of evaluating the RFP (request for proposals) as far as I understand.” Bose wants to see more accountability. “We have to be good stewards of the waste we generate.” areid@thenownewspaper.com

translation services to better communicate with parents. A question from CUPE asked whether candidates believed maintaining a clean environment was important to student success, an obvious reminder how custodial services have been trimmed due to budget constraints in recent years. Carol Johnson said elementary principals are finding themselves having to clean up vomit or board up broken windows because no custodial staff are available during the school day. The host groups will be holding another all-candidates meeting for school board hopefuls on Monday, Nov. 14 at Seaquam Secondary in North Delta. It will run from 7:30 to 10 p.m. The municipal election is Nov. 19.

Nineteen of the 20 candidates running for Delta school board take part in the debate at Genesis Theatre in Ladner on Monday night.

class composition, not size, that poses the biggest challenge. Val Windsor also said support for teachers with special needs students is the biggest challenge. More than 16 per cent of Delta teachers have four or more students with special needs, she said, adding the full costs of having an educational assistant is not adequately covered.

DELTA – The lack of funding in the Delta school district was the prevailing theme at an all-candidates debate for school board hopefuls Monday evening. Nineteen of the 20 running in this month’s municipal election took part in the debate at Genesis Theatre in Ladner. Organized by the Delta District Parent Advisory Council, Delta Teachers’ Association and CUPE, almost all the questions posed by the groups as well as those in attendance dealt with the chronic underfunding of the education system. One of those queries faced by candidates was what they consider the biggest challenge for teachers today. Incumbent Janet Shauntz said she thinks it’s the lack of special education funding, adding the district is “underfunded and up against it.” Fellow incumbent Brenda BennettSchneider agreed, saying she believes it’s

DEAR

OVER-CHARGED,

UNDER-APPRECIATED, CONTRACT-LOATHING MOBILE PHONE CUSTOMERS. Yes. You read that headline correctly.

And by “over-charged, under-appreciated, contract-loathing mobile phone customers” we mean a majority of all mobile customers in Canada. On average, Canadians pay more than twice as much per minute than US mobile customers.* Obviously this is something none of you are very happy about. But your collective grumblings haven’t gone unheard. Over the past two years we at WIND Mobile have built our business by listening to your issues and then (surprisingly enough) adapting our offerings to meet your needs. • That means getting a $0 phone without being shackled to a painful 3-year term contract. • That means knowing the distances between Canadians seem shorter if there are no long distance charges to pay on our network. • That means we understand that the way to keep customers with us is not through restrictive contracts, but by offering fair pricing and transparent billing. Hundreds of thousands of Canadians have already turned to WIND. And with each new customer we get the opportunity to listen to a new voice of change. So join us as together we create the plans, the services and the pricing that you deserve. Because that’s the power of WIND.

DELTA – Those elected to Delta council should be restricted to serving a maximum of two terms, says candidate Sylvia Bishop. Bishop is the latest to raise the issue of term limits. Part of Bishop’s platform includes instituting term limits and a freeze on salaries, aimed at ensuring that politics isn’t viewed as a career but as a way to serve the community. “Running for office shouldn’t be viewed as a career or a cushy job,” she said. “Representing the people in an elected position is a public service, and setting a limit of two consecutive terms and freezing politician salaries would go a long way towards restoring faith in our public officials.” The current Delta council is made up of three first-term councillors in Ian Paton, who got on after winning last year’s byelection, and Anne Peterson and Heather King, who were first elected in 2008. King, who’s now running for mayor,

had previously served on the Delta school board for six years. Lois Jackson has been mayor since 1999, but has served on council for almost four decades. Sylvia Bishop Councillors Robert Campbell and Scott Hamilton have served four and three terms, respectively, while Bruce McDonald was first elected in 1987. McDonald said he doesn’t like term limits, noting the policy had negative effects in California, as it depleted the reservoir of talent. Jackson said she wouldn’t favour such a restriction, noting many quality people are serving in elected office for extended periods. Krista Engelland, who spent 15 years on Delta council, indicated it’s something she’d like to see as it would bring new people and ideas to office.

Remembrance Day

On Friday, we remember through others OddThoughts Bob Groeneveld

I

guess what makes Remembrance Day hardest for me is that I’ve never “been there.” I can remember times when I’ve slogged through mud, kind of like the mud you read about in stories of soldiers in the First World War trenches. But not quite like that mud. At worst, I recall struggling with wastedeep mud as a youngster, trying to free cows or calves that had slipped into ditches. Or maybe that horrendous mud we encountered halfway through our trek on the West Coast Trail. But I’m sure that dragging a cow out of a mud-hole, even when the attempt to save its life has been unsuccessful, doesn’t really compare to trying to keep a wounded comrade’s head above the slime in a fresh shell crater. And the mud of the West Coast Trail is just made with water – not blood. And there were never any bullets. I’ve flown. I even flew in a replica of a Second World War fighter – but it was just a replica. Neither I nor the pilot were trying to shoot anyone out of the air – or worried about getting shot. It’s hard to imagine what the fighters of the “great wars” went through – especially considering that they were often little more than teenagers (and some were!). All we have are stories, the odd song, and an occasional poem that strikes an emotional chord and maybe – just maybe – gives us just an inkling of what it may have been like. As Donna was researching her own family’s history, she ran into information about a cousin (once removed, whatever that means) who had penned a poem at the very dawn of the Second World War. Wesley Roy Ellis was a member of the Manchester Fire Brigade in England. His

poem captures the moment at the fire hall when all stopped to hear the prime minister’s radio broadcast announcing that talks with Germany had broken down, and the country was now at war. The speech was cousin to the one presented the same day by King George VI, which has since been featured in the excellent film, The King’s Speech. This was before the fighting and the blood. But the dread and disappointment…

THE BROADCAST

In silent groups we waited there, That morning in September. Each face around, each vacant stare, I always will remember.

The premier’s voice was firm but low, It came to us o’er the air. To him it was a bitter blow that he had war to declare.

In groups we sat, but no one spoke Their thoughts, their hopes or fears; Some lit a cigarette, to smoke, perhaps to hide a tear.

“For years we strove for peace,” he said, “Not one path was neglected.” “We offered friendship, but instead, our efforts were rejected.”

And then a voice said, “Stations, please,” Our system to prepare. We hadn’t time to get on our knees, but on every lip was a prayer.

“It is our duty now to fight Against this evil thing, And pray that God will defend the right, and victory to us bring.”

We turned again, our work to start – I know that every member Silently vowed to do their part, that morning in September.

“Now! may God bless you, everyone.” These were the last words spoken, And then his awful task was done: but the silence wasn’t broken.

Wesley Roy Ellis, Manchester Fire Brigade

Logo shows disrespect for Canadian veterans The Editor, As a 36-year Canadian Army veteran I should thank all the politicians for the “support” for veterans as shown in the adverts I see in the local papers. However, as a retired soldier whose daughter is married to a United States Marine, I must take exception to MLA Kevin Falcon’s staff creating a logo by superimposing a U.S. Marine sergeant (upside-down chevrons) and a few Marines on top of a partial maple leaf. This shows disrespect for Canadian veterans – disrespect in that they couldn’t be bothered to get it right! Mac Savage, Surrey

Tired of complaints about our culture The Editor, Re: Harvinder Sandhu’s recent columns. I just finished reading the Nov. 8 issue and had to find the time to sit down and send in my reply to an earlier column of Sandhu’s titled “Learn how to pronounce names.” Her tirade about people shortening names because they can’t pronounce them

shows that she is so disconnected with the country she lives in and the customs that Canada has. Obviously, her Halloween comments proved it again. She certainly doesn’t make the effort to research these customs before she writes, otherwise she’d understand that it is common practice for an Anglo-Saxon name to be shortened. Sometimes it is even done out of endearment – imagine that. It has nothing to do with being lazy or not being politically correct. What a bunch of crap. Knowing this, my mother chose for me a given name with one syllable, so it couldn’t be shortened – it was a simple solution. Driving through the city, I have seen numerous real estate signs and business signs with South Asian names shortened to one syllable. So that’s OK, but if a nonSouth Asian person tries to use a shorter name, it’s not OK? Oh, please, enough already. Countries are getting fed up with their own customs having to change to suit other cultures. When a person moves to a city and doesn’t like the culture or doesn’t want to learn the language, then they should save themselves some grief and move on. I know I would. L. Smith, Surrey

For Denture/Partial Wearers: ❑ Are your dentures so uncomfortable you can’t wear them? ❑ Cannot eat your favourite foods? ❑ Do they make your mouth sore? ❑ Are they loose?

If yes, we can help you!

Holidays should unite, not divide cultures The Editor, Re: “No pressure, lots of fun,” the Now, Nov. 3. I was amazed how columnist Harvinder Sandhu could call Halloween a fake, madeup celebration. What defines a fake celebration? If you enjoy Halloween, then you should enjoy decorating your house and carving pumpkins if that’s what you choose to do. This should not be a stressful event that makes you feel pressured because your neighbour’s yard is decorated and yours is not. Decorating your house for any celebration is not a competition; it is something you do because you enjoy doing it. If you have children who enjoy Halloween, then you can include them in the decorating and celebrating of this event. Also, celebrating Halloween should have nothing to do with what culture you are from. I am a Canadian of South Asian descent and I love Halloween and look forward to decorating my house. I also live in a neighbourhood with many other South Asians and other cultures, some

people choose to decorate, others don’t. Articles like Sandhu’s are what separates different cultures and races from one another. Instead, celebrations and holidays should bring people from different cultures together to celebrate, and this should make you feel liberated – instead of isolated to your own culture. Monisha J., Surrey

Kanakos should re-do Grade 12 English The Editor, Re: “‘Re-elect’ signs spark uproar,” the Now, Nov. 8. I agree completely with Scott Kerr’s position. Delta council candidate Jeannie Kanakos’s response is absurd. She served on council from 2005 to 2008. Regardless of how hard she thinks she worked, it was three years ago. Kanakos is not seeking re-election, she is seeking to be elected again – right after she completes Grade 12 English. Christopher Hindson, North Delta

Song, dance and romance Dorothy Perkins, 90, and other Vaudevillians return to the stage for a pair of “In Love” shows Saturday Now staff twitter@amyreid87

SURREY — With a peach flower in her hair to match her peach dress, sparkly earrings and shoes like a princess, 90-yearold Dorothy Perkins owns the stage when she opens her mouth to sing. Just like lyrics in her solo number, Perkins “enjoys being a girl.” Perkins is a member of The Vaudevillians, a seniors’ entertainment troupe that practises at Kennedy Seniors’ Recreation Centre in North Delta. The volunteer group consists of 28 seniors, 63 to 90 years young, and they put on about 25 shows a year at a variety of venues. The troupe will be performing a brand new show, called “Vaudevillians in Love,” this Saturday, Nov. 12, at Surrey Arts Centre at Bear Creek Park. There will be a matinee at 2 p.m. and a second show at 7:30 p.m. The eighth annual event will raise money for the group’s bursary fund, which awards deserving performing arts students at Douglas College. The fund currently stands in excess of $62,000. Perkins said her love for music began as a child. “I’ve always loved to sing,” she said. She sang in school and with her family, of which she is the eldest of eight children. “When we were kids we didn’t have radios and television, so we made our own (music).” Perkins sang for a band when she was about 16. She was the only girl. “When they started travelling, my father

wouldn’t approve of it,” she said with a chuckle. “So that kind of took the wind out of my sails.” After Perkins’ husband passed away, she got involved with music again through the choir at Kennedy Seniors’ Recreation Centre. And now, she is in The Vaudevillians. “It’s quite unusual, I think, for a 90-yearold,” she said of still being able to work it on stage. Perkins said Saturday’s performance is going to be full of singing, dancing and jokes. “It’s like Vaudeville was,” she said, adding that the group typically chooses songs from the 1930s. And as the show’s title touts, there’s a lot of love in the show. Jim Trimble, vice-president of the group, said the show is “full of humour and the best dancing we’ve ever had.” “Dancing is one of the most popular segments in the show. It gets people up and moving,” he said. Trimble said that the calibre of the singing has also steadily improved over the years. As has the costumes. From bright pinks and reds to feathers and flowers to lots of sparkles, the audience is in for a visual treat, as well as a musical one. Tickets are $20 for the matinee. Tickets to the evening shows are $22.50 for general admission and $20 for seniors and students. Call the box office at 604-501-5566 or visit tickets.surrey.ca.

Gallery tour Thursday with SAG’s Strom Want to be part of a conversation about the art of translation? A curator’s tour of new exhibitions at Surrey Art Gallery tonight (Thursday, Nov. 10) is your chance. The event runs from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at the Bear Creek Park facility. Leading the tour is Jordan Strom, the gallery’s curator of exhibitions and collections, who will provide background

on the distinct approaches and techniques of the many artists whose work is featured in the exhibitions Brendan Fernandes: Disscontinent and Dipna Horra: Dhunia – Part One, and the group exhibition Finding Correspondences. These exhibitions explore the role of language translation and cross-cultural translation, which have been so important for the formation of individual and group identities in contemporary life. There will be time for refreshments and conversation after the tour. Admission to the event is by donation.

The tour will examine how and why the particular artworks on display were chosen for the exhibitions, illustrate interesting stories about how the artworks relate to the artists’ previous work, and illuminate the many ideas explored in the exhibitions. For event details, call 604-501-5566 or visit www.surrey.ca/arts.

360-second time limit Semiahmoo Arts encourages participants to “let the words fly” during another Zero to 360 event tonight (Thursday, Nov. 10).

The literary open-mic gathering is held monthly at Pelican Rouge Coffee house in White Rock’s Central Plaza, at the southwest corner of 152nd Street and 16th Avenue. Doors open at 7 p.m. “Come early to sign up, as there are a limited number of spaces, and last month they filled up by 7:10 p.m.,” event organizers say. The significance of the event title is simple: “360” is the number of seconds writers get on stage to present their work — six minutes, maximum. For more info, see www.semiahmooarts.com.

SLT’s latest,‘At First Sight’

Extended until Nov. 18th

ArtsScene Melanie Minty Columnist

t’s beginning to look a lot like winter — or at least late fall. The leaves are changing (and falling), the temperatures are dropping and we are back to standard time. Ah yes, time. So we got another hour added to our routine. Betcha most of us just slept through it anyway. It’s not like we actually had “extra” time. Could have used more time, for sure. I am one of those people with a jam-packed schedule (mostly really love it that way), but it does mean that I just can’t get to everything I would like to do, and see and all that. Time. There just isn’t enough. Surrey Little Theatre created some more time for their season-opening play, At First Sight. A holdover has been announced through to Nov. 26 now, instead of ending on the 19th. Fabulous. I might be able to go see it with the extension. Many nights have been sold out, though, so this extension was necessary. It must be good and worth seeing if so many shows are already sold out. Holdover shows for At First Sight are Friday, Nov. 25 and Saturday, Nov. 26. As of Monday morning, shows on Nov. 10, Nov. 12 and Nov. 18 are sold out. Only a few tickets are left for the Nov. 19 show. Call 604-576-9545 for reservations. Show days are Thursday through Sunday. Time is running out, so book now. The Vaudevillians have their big show of the season at Surrey Arts Centre this Saturday, Nov. 12. Matinee and evening performances are available. This entertaining group of seniors performs extensively throughout the year, and love what they do. Proceeds from this show go to their bursary fund; they donate a scholarship each year to a student in the arts at Douglas College. Keep the arts alive. If you haven’t booked

tickets yet, now would be a good time to do so — phone 604-501-5566. You might get lucky and still get a ticket. Opening on the mainstage at Surrey Arts Centre on Nov. 23 is Fraser Valley Gilbert & Sullivan Society’s annual musical panto. This year’s production of Beauty and the Beast promises to continue the society’s tradition of delivering loads of familyfriendly fun. I’m not going to take the time (which I don’t have anyway) to explain the concept of a panto. The traditional British pantomime (look it up online) has been transfigured somewhat by FVGSS over the 26 years they have engaged in this frivolity — lots of singing, dancing and silly jokes. Please note, this production is not the Disney version of the story, but you will find all of your favourite characters, plus more. No dancing spoons, though, or magic furniture. The thrice-weekly rehearsals is why I don’t have much time to attend other events; I was lucky enough to be cast in the chorus this year. And wow, the chorus is hard work. Music director Tim Tucker puts passion into getting all the vocals perfect (we try, anyway), and choreographer Carol Seitz has, once again, made non-dancers look amazing. Once every muscle in my body stops hurting, I will enjoy the experience. Artistic director Mike Balser is a creative genius. He doesn’t miss a move. Trust me. The cast includes Kaitlyn Yott as Belle, Sean Donnelly as Beast/Prince, Paul Rowell as Antoine, Robert Newcombe as Smelle (that’s Belle’s sister; I told you this isn’t the Disney version), Barrie Mills as Claude, Clive Ramroop as Prince Dobbin, Tammy Theis as Pierre, Jeff Christensen as Sneaker, Rosemary Forst as Bossy (the bad fairy), Samantha Andrews as Goody (the good fairy), Adam Olgui as Pepe, Adrian Duncan as the Town Crier and Elisabeth Olsson as the Little Girl. Girls are going to swoon for Sean and adore Adam. And that’s just the beginning.

im Byrnes is still buzzing from the World Series win by the baseball Cardinals of his native St. Louis. The local bluesman is aiming for something of a musical home-run when he hits the stage next Friday, Nov. 18 at Surrey Arts Centre. The husky-voiced singer/guitarist is joined again by Babe Gurr, a frequent collaborator of his, dating back to 2009. In October of that year, they played to a capacity crowd at the Bear Creek Park venue, and they’re hoping for a similar turnout next week at the renovated mainstage.

Stanley Theatre, for starters, and also Motown Meltdown at the Commodore Ballroom. Gurr, the lesser known of the two musicians, released her latest album, SideDish, in Jim Byrnes September, and it’s receiving some rave reviews. The music finds Gurr exploring world music fused with her own roots style — an “ethno-roots” mix of Italian, Spanish, Middle-Eastern, Brazilian and New Babe Gurr Orleans sounds. Eight of the songs are written by Gurr, with two covers sung in Italian. “Her music see › page 27

SUMNER BROTHERS RETURN

The Sumner Brothers return to familiar stomping grounds Saturday night (Nov. 12) with a gig at Crescent Beach Legion. “Kind of a neat show for us,” reports Bob Sumner, on behalf of sibling Brian and the other “Brothers” of the acclaimed roots/blues band. “It has been over a year since we have played our home base here, touring a lot — Western Canada, West Coast U.S.A. down to L.A. (We) have also made a couple trips to play out in New York.” Saturday’s show has the Sumners playing with Goodbye Bones, a local cover band. “There is a lot of significance here,” Bob says. “Three of the band members were originally in Brian’s first band. They never had a name, and never performed a show, but they rehearsed five nights a week, diligently working out original material. Life got in the way and they parted ways but have always remained the best of friends. Now those fellas have formed a

really great cover band called Goodbye Bones. “This show will be one part music, one part party,” Bob continues.“A lot of old friends are pretty excited to see so many old pals up on the stage.” Tickets are $12 at the door, $10 in advance (at the hall).

CROWBAR SONG ‘SAVES’

Radio station The Shore 104.3 FM has announced the launch of the Music Saves III video, the third installment in the Music Saves series, in support of Vancouver Adapted Music Society (www.vams.org) and Canadian Music Therapy Trust Fund (www. musictherapytrust.ca). Music Saves is a music video series based on the Playing For Change concept. The performances were filmed and recorded live throughout various picturesque locations around Vancouver this summer, then edited together into one song and video. In 2009, Music Saves I performed the Bob Dylan song “I Shall Be Released,” followed in 2010 by a version of Dave Mason’s classic “Feelin’ Alright.” For 2011, the musicians performd “Oh What A Feeling” by Crowbar, a Canadian band. Those involved include Jim Byrnes, Chin Injeti, Kyprios, Dan Moxon, Billy the Kid and many more. Check out the video online at www.shore104.com.

Le st We Forget

In Flanders fields, the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below... We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved, and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields... Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands, we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields... Lt.-Col. John McCrae 1872 – 1918

Surrey remembers

was talking to some newcomers to Canada and reminded them that all banks and government offices were going to be closed on Friday. They didn’t know why, as they have only been here for a few months. I took it upon myself to inform them about Remembrance Day and what it means to us Canadians. As my history lessons have faded away, I did a quick search on the internet to get the details behind this important day. I know it is to remember our fallen soldiers, but since I was informing those who didn’t know, I wanted to make sure I got the right information – and there is a lot of information. To keep it brief for this space, here is some of what I learned: Remembrance Day marks the anniversary of the official end of the First World War on Nov. 11, 1918. I learned that this was a particularly brutal war for both military

personnel and civilians. Being a fairly new country at the time, Canada made its mark on the world stage in this war through its brave soldiers. They showed tenacity and valour in the appalling battles they fought. Canadian soldiers also fought in the Second World War and, since 2002 our troops have been in Afghanistan, where we have lost 158 members, the latest casualty of war was on Oct. 29, 2011 by a suicide bomber in Kabul, Afghanistan. I explained to the newcomers the significance of the poppy and why we all should wear one. The poem may have been lost on them, but the significance of what the poppy means was not. They understood immediately the sentiment behind this day – likely because their home countries had fought wars as well. I told them where the ceremony would be held and encouraged them to attend. Meanwhile, I gave them poppies to wear. My children understand Nov. 11 is just not another long weekend to sleep in because they don’t have to go to school. It’s a day where they are required to participate, to understand and to pay their respects. See page 32 in today’s Now to find out where you can honour Canada’s soldiers.

REMEMBRANCE DAY

‘Let us remember’ Four emotional ceremonies planned in Surrey, Delta and White Rock

SURREY REMEMBERS

ven though most people will observe Remembrance Day tomorrow, ceremonies have been held for the past few days, dubbed Veterans’ Week. On Tuesday morning members of the Whalley Legion and ladies auxiliary joined together in a Colour Party for the Remembrance ceremony at Kinsmen Place Lodge in North Surrey. The Color Party, in uniform and bearing flags, had a similar event planned for later that day and on Wednesday they were due to visit schools in the area to talk about the sacrifices of those who served the country in wars past and present as well as peacekeeping missions.

Surrey’s annual ceremony takes place at the Cloverdale Cenotaph in the Surrey Museum Plaza, 17710 56A Ave. It runs from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. with activities also offered at the museum afterward. There are crafts to commemorate the day, Second World War documentary videos in the theatre, and postcards on which people can write thankyou notes to veterans and their families, which will be delivered later.

DELTA REMEMBERS

In Delta, there are two ceremonies planned. The South Delta ceremony begins at 10:20 a.m. with a parade from the Legion at 4896 Delta St. that will end at the cenotaph at Ladner Memorial Park, 5010 47th Ave., for a 10:45 a.m. ceremony. The other observance is at North Delta Social Heart Plaza, 11415 84th Ave., at 10:40 a.m., with a reception afterward at the North Delta rec centre.

SEE PHOTO GALLERY ONLINE At Kinsmen Place, about 50 took part in the annual ceremony, led by chaplain Gord Fergus and organized by the branch’s sergeant-at-arms, Glen Wilson. “We gather here today to think reverently of our comrades who (during the First and Second World Wars, as well as the Korean War) made a sacrifice,” said Fergus. “Let us also remember the men (and women) of the Canadian Armed Forces who are returning home from Afghanistan, and the peacekeepers,” he said. Fergus talked about how Remembrance Day came to be, how it changed over the years, and why they would observe two minutes of silence. This is done to honour Private George Price, considered the last soldier of the British Empire to be killed during the First World War – two minutes before the guns fell silent at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918. And also in keeping with tradition, the veterans were the first to place their poppies

(Photo: KEVIN HILL) on a white cross set up at the front of the hall, followed by other elders in attendance, many of whom accepted assistance from both staff members and the Colour Party. Although there was a good turnout at the retirement home, not all of the 144 who

live there choose to participate. Some find Remembrance Day to be quite emotional and prefer to spend the day alone in their room in contemplation of family and friends they’ve lost.

ccooke@thenownewspaper.com

On the Semiahmoo Peninsula, the ceremony begins with a parade at 9:30 a.m. followed by a ceremony at the White Rock Cenotaph, beside city hall at 15322 Buena Vista Ave. A parade map and more information is available online at www.whiterockcity.ca.

The British are coming! The British are coming! For the 11th edition of the Just for Laughs Comedy tour, that is. The annual event returns this year with its first British edition, with Canadian comedian Steve Patterson accompanied by a gaggle of U.K comics, as they play 19 cities across the country, including a stop at Surrey’s Bell Performing Arts Centre on Friday, Nov. 18. “I think they felt too guilty about giving it all to the British, so they had to fit an Irish-Canadian in there,” says Patterson, who is best known for hosting CBC’s The Debaters. “I’m a little bit nervous about touring a group of British comedians all across the country. (I hope) they aren’t always angry, as they are in the soccer photos.” Facetiousness aside, Patterson acknowledges the sophisticated brand of comedy that will arrive from across the pond. “They’re definitely wordsmiths,” the Toronto native says. “The British comics, just by the culture over there, are usually very politically aware and up on their current events... There are so many different panel shows, where they bring comedians on with politicians and experts to give their perspective.” The tour stop in Surrey features Terry Alderton, Matt Kirshen, Stephen K. Amos, Sean Meo and opening act Abandoman, an improvisational hip-hop group described as “Flight of the Conchords meets 8 Mile.” Patterson is aware some British cultural references may come across the wrong way. “They would think of ‘tramp’ as a homeless person, and I’ll have to explain (to the audience) that it means something different over there.”

But the culture gap works both ways. Patterson recalls one incident when he was on tour in Manchester when an inebriated heckler could dish it out, but couldn’t take it. “He came at me like a little bulldog,” he says. Security ended up throwing the patron out, “but the guy waited outside for me all night, and eventually, the guys from the club had to send him off or call the cops. “They’re great, savvy audiences over there, but if they don’t like something, they really don’t like it,” he adds. “The kind of stuff you can put a heckler down with, maybe in North America, won’t suffice over here.” The crowds in Canada, however, are a “little bit more willing to laugh at themselves... We can be selfdeprecating,” Patterson says. As a Canadian comic performing in the U.K., Patterson found that, if he “made fun of something British,” some audience members would respond with, “Who are you to make fun of that?” Whereas in Canada, audiences are more likely to say, “It’s a joke. I get it.” As for anyone worried about blue language, Patterson says, “I’ve never really worked dirty, so it’s not going to be the same shock as people who see Bob Saget live.” Still, he promises the Just for Laughs show will certainly “have more edge than The Debaters.”

We Will Store Your Summer Tires for

Despite our friendly reputation, a recent Leger Marketing poll commissioned by the makers of Yellow Tail wine found that a whopping 60 per cent of Canadians have not socialized with their neighbours recently. While British Columbians were the friendliest of all, 50 per cent still stated that it has been at least three months since they invited a neighbour over to socialize, if ever. Style and entertaining maven Janette Ewen and Yellow Tail are joining forces to spread the word that entertaining your neighbours can be easy and fun. The campaign celebrates Yellow Tail Reserve range — a more premium, “special occasion” offering by the beloved Australian label. When faced with the challenge by Yellow Tail to come up with a way to get Canadians to reconnect with their neighbours, Ewen hatched a plan to revolutionize neighbourhood socializing one porch at a time. She is urging Canadians to take to their porches and embrace the entertaining trend of the moment: porch parties. Ewen’s porch party crusade is designed

to inspire Canadians to reach out to their neighbours and host casual gatherings this fall. “Many people resist entertaining because they feel it requires too much planning and preparation. Throwing a porch party for your neighbours is a fun twist on entertaining and is very simple to pull off,” says Ewen. “British Columbia has such a beautiful fall season and your porch is the best seat in the house to take it all in. By following a few simple tips, Janette Ewen anyone can host a no-fuss porch party. The recipe is simple: a welcoming porch, willing neighbours and great wine. And maybe a blanket or two!” When asked, 44 per cent of Canadians stated that they have never even attempted to use their porch for entertaining. The survey also revealed that when entertaining guests, 76 per cent of Canadians say they are likely to serve wine.

NOTICE: ENTRANCES TO SURREY MEMORIAL HOSPITAL

ARTS & LIFE

Geysers, mud pots and other winter adventures

THERE WILL SOON BE A NEW LOOK ON THE LANGLEY BY-PASS

pools and steam vents), and wildlife is concentrated in the warmer, snow-free geyser basins for easier viewing.” Austin noted that while snowshoeing the Upper Geyser Basin Trail, guests will experience (in an approximately twosquare-mile area) the largest concentration and nearly one-quarter of all the geysers in the world. This is the home of Old Faithful. “Yellowstone in Winter” is one of six brand-new ALA adventures that won’t be found in their new 2012 print catalog but are only featured on the ALA website, www. austinlehman.com. “Year after year it’s our Yellowstone Park vacation packages that outsell all others,” Austin added. “However, we have seen interest in all of our National Park vacations grow at an astounding rate.” Austin-Lehman Adventures provides adventure vacations on five continents. The company specializes in adult and family multi-sport, hiking, biking vacations that emphasize history, culture and nature’s charms.

As a result, the traffic pattern in the adjacent parking lot has changed slightly. To use the drop-off or to park in the stalls closest to it, you must enter the parking lot at the east end (closer to 138 Street) and exit at the existing street entrance near the entrance to the underground parking. The route will be clearly marked with signs. If you plan to park underground or in the stalls near the Charles Barham Pavilion, you can still enter the lot through the existing entrance closest to the underground parking entrance. Entry to west side of South Building For those who previously entered the hospital via the west-side door in the South Building, please access it through the elevators on the first level of the underground parking. Main entrance moved to 138 Street The hospital’s main entrance has been moved from 96 Avenue to 138 Street, where it will remain for up to two years as the north lobby is expanded and rebuilt. There is still a wheelchair-accessible pedestrian entrance on the north side for patients and visitors accessing units in that area of the hospital. We appreciate your patience during our renovations and construction. We remain committed to providing the best care possible to you, our patients, while we continue creating possibilities together at our regional campus of care.

ou can’t spit a popcorn husk in the multiplex these days and not hit a film about the financial crisis. Foreclosure signs still litter the North American landscape as fallout from the 2008 financial crisis, ripples of which are still being felt. Everyone from busboy to CEO being affected, that makes the topic of what went wrong popular fodder for films, from 2010’s excellent documentary Inside Job, to last week’s crime caper Tower Heist. Margin Call is a deliberately claustrophobic look at the hours preceding the economic meltdown, at one Wall Street firm. In a business where the two things guaranteed to adorn an executive’s desk are a photo of the family he never sees, and a bottle of Pepto Bismol, we watch as the investment firm culls 80 per cent of its work force in one day. After enduring the indignity of being fired in a fishbowl office, Eric (Stanley Tucci) is further shamed by being escorted out of the building after 19 years of service. It’s a long, painfully quiet march out to the elevator. Eric does a last-minute You don’t hand-off out the elevator door, passing a flash drive to need to an entry-level analyst with the understand the warning “be careful.” Peter (Zachary Quinto) was a rocket numbers to scientist at MIT before heading understand the to the firm, and it only takes urgency. him a few hours of overtime to fill the gaps in Eric’s dismal market projection. Peter calls his superior, the ice-cold Will Emerson (Paul Bettany), who, in turn, calls his boss, Sam (Kevin Spacey). Sam calls Jared Cohen (Simon Baker, The Mentalist), the 40-year-old who runs the show. But, like those matryoshka dolls, there’s always another head popping up: the allpowerful John Tuld (Jeremy Irons) helicopters in for an emergency meeting with the board, including riskmanagement analyst Sara Robertson (Demi Moore). “It’s going to get worse before it gets better,” says Sam. “Much.” This is an intimate look at men and women standing on the precipice of a financial meltdown, a cataclysm they helped create. Their solution? To keep mum and unload as much of the product as possible before anyone notices, to unwitting investors who will be bankrupted by a single phone call. “If you do this, you’re killing the market for years and you’re selling stuff you know to be worthless,” says Sam, the only one who seems to have a conscience under all that slick. “No one will ever trust you again, you knowingly putting people out of business,” he says during his rationale to John. “It’s just money, it’s made up,” John replies coolly, while tearing into a steak dinner. You don’t need to understand the numbers to understand the urgency. Margin Call does a great job of condensing the crisis into the microcosm of one office, during one 24-hour period. A smart script by first-time director J.C. Chandor avoids outright villainy, with characters caught up in an unprecedented moral quagmire. Excellent performances all around. “Look at these people, wandering around with no idea what’s about to happen to them,” says 23-year-old trader Seth (Penn Badgley). It’s funny until you realize that those people are us.

Melissa McCarthy won the Emmy for her portrayal of a heavy gal living in a skinny world in the first season of Mike & Molly. Her enabler mom (Swoozie Kurtz) keeps insisting that Molly is big-boned: “Bones don’t jiggle, mom!” and her sister stays trim thanks to pot and perpetual relationship hysteria. Thankfully, Molly meets Mike (Billy Gardell) at an Overeaters’ Anonymous meeting. The first season looks at the bumps in their fledgling relationship, in a sitcom infused with some edgy writing. Prohibition, the three-part PBS documentary series by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, tells the 100-year history leading up to Prohibition, the “noble experiment” designed to eradicate drunkenness, licentiousness and violence in families

Billy Gardell and Melissa McCarthy star in the TV show “Mike & Molly.” and communities. The film features historians who weigh in on the influence of churches, immigration and big government, and the violence and corruption Prohibition spawned. With narration by Peter Coyote, Jeremy Irons, Patricia Clarkson, Blythe Danner, Paul Giamatti, Tom Hanks, John Lithgow and Oliver

Platt. It’s a fascinating six hours, plus bonus scenes, interview outtakes and more. Whether or not you’re a fan of Maria Bello in the new NBC version, there’s no denying the supremacy of the original Prime Suspect series, featuring Helen Mirren as chain-smoking detective Jane Tennison. Season one sees DCI Tennison campaigning to head a murder investigation with close ties to her own unit, much to the anger of the sexist male officers who ridicule and stymie investigation efforts behind her back. Meanwhile, Jane tries to keep her relationship (with Tom Wilkinson) from falling apart. The Emmywinning series played to rave reviews in 1991, spawning six sequel seasons. If you haven’t seen it, do.

Skimpy plot to go along with some of her outfits Now contributor

Bad Teacher Directed by Jake Kasdan. Starring Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake. My rating: 4 (out of 10) After being dumped by her wealthy boyfriend, world’s worst teacher Elizabeth (Cameron Diaz) makes it her mission to land another wealthy dupe. Enter Scott (Justin Timberlake), a substitute teacher. Taking him for a big-boob man, Elizabeth decides that the only solution to her plight is to skim money off her students, get a boob job, and win Scott’s heart. Standing in her way is super keen teacher Amy Squirrel (a fabulous Lucy Punch) and gym teacher Russell (Jason

Cameron Diaz in the Rrated “Bad Teacher.” Segel), the only one who calls Elizabeth on her crap. Bad Teacher could’ve been an interesting alternative to the “tough teacher makes a difference” propaganda we’ve been fed over the years, but

director Jake Kasdan forsakes the opportunity in favour of a skimpy plot filled with potty humour (obligatory men’s bathroom scene), T&A jokes (a too-long look at breasts Elizabeth test-drives) and shots of Diaz in buttonpopping outfits (the car wash scene). The film’s R rating means that screenwriters have gone to town with Diaz’s dialogue, filling pages with expletives instead of actual jokes. The whole novelty of a teacher dropping F-bombs on her students wears thin quickly. Too long for what it is, the film is a shameful waste of Jason Segel’s comic talents, and there isn’t an interesting character in the lot. Punch is the best of the bunch, an easy pick, since she plays a recovering nutcase.

mini-goals. It will be like eating mini donuts; before you know it, you’ve consumed more calories than those of a full-sized donut even if that wasn’t your goal. So take that first little step — or bite — toward the place you’d like to be. Visualize the person you want to be. Try out a small change this week, see how you feel and then decide where you’ll step next. A little bite won’t hurt — if we’re not talking about junk food, poison apples, rabies, malaria or other infectious diseases. If your goal is to eat a healthier diet, think about a small change that you could carry out every day for the next week. If you haven’t been eating enough fruit, pack three fresh fruits — maybe an apple, a banana or a half-cup of grapes — in your bag for school or work. If you’ve been buying fast-food for lunch each day, plan your meals for the week and make the next day’s lunch each evening. Make your whole wheat sandwiches with lean white meat or fish, tomatoes, lettuce, low-fat cheese or whatever will make it tasty and interesting for you. You could also mix a fresh salad each morning. If you’ve been drinking too much juice or pop, try a week of fresh water, skim milk or green tea. If snacking is the Achilles heel of your diet, for one week, stock up on celery and carrot sticks with a low-fat dip or a variety of fresh fruit. The increasing feelings of wellbeing, self-control and empowerment will motivate you to take further steps towards a healthier you. Positive change always begins with the first small steps.

Holy Cross grad helps UBC team fly Michael Booth

Now staff twitter@surreynowsports

In 1997, Holy Cross High School grad Shawn Olson led the UBC Thunderbirds to the Vanier Cup championship as the best university football team in Canada. Fourteen years later, another Holy Cross Crusaders grad is helping the Thunderbirds return to national prominence. Quarterback Billy Greene, who led the Crusaders to their only B.C. class AAA high school football title in 2007, is enjoying a breakout campaign in his fourth season on the Point Grey campus. On Oct. 29, the T-Birds knocked off the top-ranked Calgary Dinosaurs 36-23. Leading the way was Greene, who passed for 421 yards and four touchdowns in the upset win. He also led the T-Birds with 60 rushing yards and was named CIS Canada West player of the week for the second time this season. Last Saturday, UBC sweated out a 27-22 playoff win over Saskatchewan Huskies at Thunderbird Stadium. The victory means the T-birds will meet Calgary in the Canada West final Friday at McMahon Stadium. After the Oct. 29 win, UBC climbed to No. 6 in the national ranking — their highest perch in a dozen years. “Obviously the rankings don’t mean too much in the grand scheme of things but we’re happy to be recognized,” Greene said. “Being rated as one of the top 10 teams in the country gives us some confidence and that’s awesome. It’s a confidence booster but

UBC Thunderbirds QB Billy Greene leads his team into the Canada West division football final this Friday, Nov. 11 in Calgary against the Dinosaurs. (Photo: UBC ATHLETICS) it goes along with some of the success we’ve had this year like beating the top-ranked team in the country. “Last year there were a couple of games where if we had won, we would have had a better year but we let them slip away. This year we’re winning those close games and that gives us even more confidence. We may not play a perfect game but we find a way to win.” Greene’s success this season is rooted in three seasons of learning the demands of being a CIS quarterback. In his first year at UBC Greene had to adapt to the rules of the Canadian game after playing with American

rules at the high school level. It was not always easy as university defences are much more complex and, at times, more confusing, than what he faced at Holy Cross. “It’s not an easy process,” Greene said. “It was tough at the beginning because our offence struggled a lot. Our defence was strong but we just couldn’t put anything together offensively. For me personally, I wouldn’t say the jump from high school to CIS was overwhelming, but it was a lot different from what I was used to. In high school I didn’t really have to worry about what the defence was doing because they

would either try and stop me running and let me throw or the opposite way around. “When I got to the CIS I was basically learning a new game and the transition was definitely difficult. Even though I did my best to prepare, the speed of the game is so much different.” The football environment at UBC received a major shakeup after Greene’s second campaign when Olson, the fellow Holy Cross grad, returned as the head coach of the program. The former Thunderbirds star has a talent for the offensive side of the game and Greene was happy to learn Olson’s tricks from the man himself. “When he got hired to be head coach I was so happy,” Greene said.“I got to know him when he was recruiting me for SFU when he was coaching there. Last year was all about learning what he wanted and the offence he was installing for us. We weren’t very successful but I could see the foundation of the program he was trying to build. I spent all summer working out with him and it really helped me. He helps me a lot with what I’m doing and I’m a lot more accurate with my passes since he started working with me.” This season Greene has emerged as one of the top quarterbacks in the Canada West conference. In six league games, he completed 59.8 per cent of his passes for 2,558 yards and 20 touchdowns and just four interceptions. His yardage total is more than 600 yards better than the next best QB, while the next closest on the touchdown list has 14. see › page 58

QB Billy Greene: Vanier Cup ring ‘would be so sweet’ ‹ from page 57

Greene is also second on the T-Birds in rushing with 482 yards and four touchdowns. Most importantly, Greene has led the TBirds to a 6-2 conference record, good enough for second place and a home playoff date for the first time since 1999. “For me things really didn’t slow down until halfway through last year,” he said.“That goes for everyone though; there are very few guys who can step in and be amazing as freshmen.

The biggest thing is just trying to figure out what the defence is trying to do to you. As a quarterback I have to see what the defence is trying to do and then know where to go with the ball. This year I’m way more comfortable with what’s happening. I’ll look and see the defence has man coverage and know where I’ll have receivers open. Three years of reps and game speed reps are huge and I’m much more comfortable with everything now.” With Olson guiding the program and Greene leading on the field, the Holy Cross

connection has re-energized the UBC football program. Greene has tried to soak up as much as he can from Olson and his progress has made the T-Birds relevant again in the Canada West playoff picture. Greene’s run of success has not gone unnoticed by his teammates who have been looking up Olson’s career stats and comparing them to their current quarterback. “Somebody asked me if I knew how close I was to breaking some of coach Olson’s records at UBC because I still have another

year to play,” Greene said with a laugh.“I told him,‘Yeah, but look at his Vanier Cup ring. When we win one of those, then I’ll start thinking about things like records.’ That would be so sweet if we could do that.” With a win Friday in Calgary, the T-birds would host the Mitchell Bowl national semifinal on Nov. 18, with the winner of that game advancing to the Vanier Cup at BC Place Stadium on the Friday night, Nov. 25, of Grey Cup week.

Drivers looking for proof that low-rollingresistance tires save money on fuel can now turn to a study by the Transportation Research Board in the United States. The study confirms low-rolling-resistance tires on passenger vehicles can reduce fuel consumption, pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Rolling resistance is caused by continuous changes in a tire’s shape as it rolls under the weight of your vehicle. As a result, mechanical energy that would otherwise be available to turn the wheels is converted into heat in the tire. Low-rolling-resistance tires use special tread compounds and tire construction to reduce these losses. When purchasing replacement tires, be sure to inquire about energy efficient or low-rollingresistant options for your vehicle. Making an energy-efficient tire choice can save you fuel.

IN THE NORTH SURREY AUTO MALL North Surrey Auto Mall 15389 Guildford Drive

Aries March 21 - April 19: Embrace change. Embrace dreams, mystery, subconscious urges, large finances, intimacy, commitment and consequences. Look far ahead before you tie up your future. You might change your mind (or heart) in a few weeks or months. However, if you’re sure, wrap things up now. A slowdown begins next week. Health diagnosis or surgery might be needed. Sunday’s busy, easy. Focus on your home, family, security Monday/Tuesday. Romance lures you midweek – and succeeds – but don’t miss a splendid work-earnings opportunity Wednesday. (Pursue it further Friday.) Taurus April 20-May 20: Start wrapping things up – a slowdown begins next week. Grab opportunities, shake hands, make agreements, conclude negotiations.Your romantic and creative sides intensify now to next July – take note Friday eve, Saturday. Earlier, Sunday’s for shopping, earning. (Good for movies, computer games.) Communications, short trips, paperwork fill Monday/Tuesday – duties restrict you, but you still succeed. Head for home Wednesday to Friday morning – some happy, good things happen here – and they seem connected to love, affection. You could meet “the one” Friday eve/night! Gemini May 21-June 20: A slowdown starts next week. Use the present interval to complete chores so they won’t interfere with a “homecoming” late month into December. You might be literally going home, or revisiting a place you once relocated to, or homecoming might be in the heart: meeting an “ex,” even a former opportunity in business or public dealings – but that’s next week onward. For now, finish those chores. Your energy and effectiveness are high Sunday. Chase money or shop Monday/ Tuesday – don’t buy used items. Midweek’s busy, affectionate. Investments succeed, Wednesday to Saturday.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Romance, creativity, adventure, beauty and pleasure continue to flow. Take a rest Sunday – withdraw and dream, contemplate, plan.Your intuition is high this eve, especially regarding finances. Your energy, charisma and effectiveness soar Monday/Tuesday: you might meet someone very attractive. Marriage/partnership plays a significant role. Something begins, something breaks. Chase money and/or shop Wednesday/Thursday – success promised, both socially and in buying clothes for work. Charm and a bargain combine. Prestige errands, travel and a flirtation come, Friday/Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Wrap up projects now. Next week brings a slowdown. Only start things you can complete in a few days. DON’T begin extensive home repairs or renovations before Dec. 13/14. Generally, you remain in a sluggish rest period this week. Take care of domestic, security and property concerns. Sunday’s happy, hopeful. (Intuition’s high about future finances.) Retreat, rest, contemplate and plan Monday/Tuesday. Your energy, charisma and romantic outlook rise nicely Wednesday/Thursday. Charm can lead to a career-earnings plum! Chase money Friday/ Saturday, but don’t spend it. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: A slowdown arrives next week, so complete projects and reach final understandings now, especially in domestic, property and similar affairs. Read Gemini for a clue to upcoming weeks: you might grab a property deal that eluded you, or experience a unique nostalgia about family or home. For now, though, stay busy, communicate, tackle paperwork, errands and meetings. Sunday’s for prestige, ambitions. Your popularity and joy rise Monday/Tuesday. Retreat Wednesday/Thursday: tiredness and romance mingle, which could cause a learning experience. Your energy and charisma surge Friday/Saturday.

Nov. 13 Astral - 19, 2011 Tim Stephens' Reflections

1-888-903-1382 2 – 2010 MATRIX'S

THE

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Complete rather than start projects. A slowdown looms on the near horizon. Spend, earn, sell. You might have been frustrated over the last few months, as an investment, house purchase or sexual relationship hasn’t seemed to gel. Perhaps you needed to figure out distance (commuting) factors, or couldn’t quite find the words to speak to someone. That looming slowdown will bring a re-examination of these matters. By late December (into mid-2012) you’ll be ready to move decisively on life-changing financial, sexual or lifestyle actions. Wishes might be granted Wednesday/Thursday! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness remain high. Get out. March forth, impress people, call in favours, seek permission. Tackle intimidating tasks. Usually I’d say start big projects – but not now. A period of delay, mistakes and second thoughts begins next week, so finish rather than start. Sunday brings mysteries and the joys of investigation. Lovers feel a sweet intimacy. Wisdom, gentle love come Monday/Tuesday: buy nothing. Be ambitious midweek: good money and a good agreement are possible. Friday/Saturday bring success at work, and some co-worker hi-jinks. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your tiredness will only last another nine days. Until then, rest, dress and eat sensibly, and contemplate – your soul, your life and future actions. Don’t plan too precisely or too near in the future, as conditions will change. (An element of delay, even of “backwardation,” will exist from Nov. 23 to Dec. 13.) Others hold the aces Sunday, so join, don’t compete. DON’T invest or make any commitments Monday/Tuesday. Wisdom, gentle love and intellectual and travel themes arrive Wednesday to Friday. Be ambitious – and gracious, forgiving – Friday/Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: A late wish might come true, as your round of socializing, flirtation, optimism and entertainment continues – for nine days. After this, it’s “quiet time.” Tackle chores Sunday – you’ll put your hand on just the right job. Relationships dominate Monday/Tuesday. Successes mingle with some frustration – but overall these two days bless you, especially if you’re diplomatic and eager.Wednesday to noon Friday unearths depths, subconscious longings, sensual desires. You could have a secret interlude. Be a detective. Friday p.m. starts a weekend of wisdom, mellow joys, and indecision. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Remain ambitious, but don’t start new projects, nor plan any new ventures before Dec. 13. Complete projects and tasks instead. E.g., don’t ask your boss for more responsibility now, because he/she might give you something to handle before mid-December, and it could go unflatteringly awry. Sunday’s romantic and creative – you’re alluring. Plunge into chores Monday/Tuesday (but practise safety Monday morn, Tuesday night). Relationships grow intense midweek – major luck can come midweek through Saturday in a financial situation, and/or in sexual intimacy. A new friend, or old? Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your mellow, thoughtful mood continues. Soon, you’re going to be temporarily shunted back to a busy old career or prestige/ status role (perhaps in your neighbourhood) so take advantage of the present restful, sweet time. Sunday’s for relaxation, home, daydreams. Romance, passion, creativity and a winning streak visit you Monday/ Tuesday. Don’t violate anyone’s dignity. Tackle chores midweek: a friendly yet challenging person or proposal might greet you – say yes. Bosses like you Thursday. Friday afternoon into Saturday brings exciting meetings, a sensual clinch or a “money deal.” timstephens@shaw.ca

Jobs well done

Inclusive hiring practices show those with developmental disabilities have much to offer Dave Willis

Possibilities contributor

rad Smith says it’s hard work but he has fun at his job at White Spot in Tsawwassen. He’s making new friends, enjoys earning a paycheque and the 20-year-old from Ladner says he’s even building some muscles carrying trays. Smith got his job at the local restaurant about six months ago through the Delta Community Living Society, a nonprofit organization that aims to improve the quality of life for people with developmental disabilities. “It’s about getting to know people and where they’re at their best, where their strengths are and creating a relationship with an employer that’s mutually beneficial,” said Barb Goertzen, an employment services liaison with Solutions Employment Services, a division of the society. “We’ve matched Brad’s talents and skills to an employer who could use those talents.” Tsawwassen White Spot general manager Randy Kaiser said Smith is a dedicated, hard-working and funny guy. “We have 70 employees here. He’s right in there with the 70 of us,” said Kaiser. Some of Smith’s duties include washing dishes, bussing tables, making sure the washrooms are clean and greeting customers at the front door. “You have to be organized to do his job,” noted Kaiser, adding Smith is a quick learner. Service manager Carmen Becir said employees at the restaurant love working with Smith. “He always shows up to work with a smile on his face.” Goertzen said she’s seeing businesses become more open to inclusive hiring. “In the three years we’ve been promoting inclusion and diversity in the workplace, more and more employers realize that hiring a person with a disability is a good business decision,” she said. “It’s moving away from what used to be a charity kind of model to real work for real pay and ensuring that everyone can make a contribution.” For more on the society, visit www.dcls.ca.

Brad Smith works at White Spot in Tsawwassen and is rarely seen without a smile on his face.

The third edition of the Music Saves video series finds several local musicians singing and playing a funk-rock version of Crowbar’s classic-rock hit, “Oh What a Feeling,” with a fresh rap, horns and guitar solo. The high-energy song debuted Nov. 10 on The Shore 104.3 radio station in support of the Vancouver Adapted Music Society (or VAMS, which supports and promotes musicians w ith physical disabilities) and Canadian Music Therapy Trust Fund. In video form, the Music Saves series is based on the “Playing For Change” concept. The performances were filmed and recorded live throughout various picturesque locations around Vancouver last summer, then edited together into one song and video. Music Saves aims to bring attention to music therapy and inspire musicians with disabilities by highlighting B.C.-based artists, both able-bodied and not, performing a new version of a hit song. Jim Byrnes is a longtime backer of the project. At age 23, the St. Louis-raised musician and actor lost both of his legs in an automobile accident. “This was a time of life when I really did not know who, what, why, where or when,” he says in a short video describing the Music Saves project. “What I did have was the ability at night to sit down at the end of the hall with my guitar and get rid of some of the pain and sort of make sense of things, through my music.” The interview clip with Byrnes appears on the website of The Shore radio station (www. shore104.com), a backer of Music Saves. In 2009, Music Saves “I” performed the Bob Dylan song “I Shall Be Released” and was given a number of awards. In 2010, Music Saves “II” performed a modern reworking of the Dave Mason classic “Feelin’ Alright.” For 2011, the version of “Oh What A Feeling” features Byrnes, Chin Injeti, Kyprios, Dan Moxon of the band Bend Sinister, Odds, Kristina Shelden, Billy the Kid and others.

Musician Jim Brynes, who lost both of his legs in an automobile crash at age 23, is a backer of the Music Saves project. file of VAMS’ positive impact on the lives of those involved, as well as the community as a whole. VAMS was founded in 1988 by former Vancouver mayor Sam Sullivan and Dave Symington. In the wake of sporting injuries, as quadriplegics, they experienced first-hand the challenges facing people with disabilities interested in making music. Through its many programs, VAMS works to remove those barriers faced by musicians, ensuring equal access for all. “It doesn’t matter what hand you’ve been dealt, you make the same kind of music,” Craig Northey, Odds’ bandleader, told the North Shore News after the launch of Music Saves “II” in 2010. “When you combine those who everybody kind of knows, people who are ubiquitous with Vancouver music, and people who should be, you just see all in one glance at the screen and in one hearing of the song how the playing field is leveled.” For info on VAMS, visit www.vams.org.

THE

Briefly

Diversity helps the bottom line Kim Rose Viewpoint

W

e work for many reasons, but for most of us, it is mainly because we have to. We need to provide for ourselves and families but we also want to work where we feel we can make a difference, contribute and work at a job that we love. Well, OK, a job that we like, at least! This is no different for people with disabilities. They have the same work desires and dreams yet the barriers that can be there for them continue – not because of their disabilities, but the ones imposed on them from society due to ignorance and not seeing the ‘Possabilities’! As a member of the Surrey Measuring Up committee, I had the honour of assisting my fellow committee members in planning, and co-emceeing the “Creating an Inclusive Workplace – Being True to the Dream of Diversity” conference this past month. This two-day conference inspired. The Possabilities tagline is “Opening Doors – Opening Eyes” and this conference motivated me to

want to do more in the employment sector. It opened my eyes to many different ways of supporting people with disabilities in the work world outside of finding employment. I realized it was time to start looking beyond the traditional opportunities and begin to create employment opportunities with our community partners. For example, by creating employment proposals to employers that fill needs many businesses may have and not realize how it can save them both time and money. After all, who doesn’t want to have their business be more successful and productive? The conference attracted participants from all over B.C., including Vancouver Island. Stephanie Cadieux, Minister of Social Development, gave an opening address that was fitting and set the tone of the conference. She talked about her early stages working in government when people asked her more about accessibility in the legislature (she uses a wheelchair) than what her political platforms were going to be. We are pleased she continues to work hard and is a shining example of what people have to offer the world. Surrey Coun. Barinder Rasode commented on the drive the city has to ensure it is one of the most inclusive and progressive communities in B.C. It was fitting to have the internationally

renowned writer, trainer and keynote speaker Denise Bissonnette be the trainer for this conference. If you have not heard her speak before, please make every effort to be inspired and motivated by her professional and personal experiences. Agencies like Milieu and university programs such as Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Access Programs for People with Disabilities (APPD) have excellent programs and innovative ways of working with the business community in order to assist and support people with disabilities who looking for employment. Real jobs for real pay! Hiring people with disabilities doesn’t just mean an inclusive workplace, it means having dedicated employees who help the bottom line grow. After all, isn’t that what business is about? My challenge to our supportive business community is that when an employment proposal and opportunity comes your way, be open, be progressive, be inclusive, be a community leader. Not because it is the right thing to so, but because you see the opportunity to grow your business. People with disabilities in Canada have more than $25 billion in spending power. Why not have them working for you and shopping in your business rather than your competitors’?

$1.5 million for new Canuck Place Children’s Hospice in Abbotsford Health Minister Michael de Jong announced an additional $1.5 million to support the construction of the new Canuck Place Children’s Hospice. Canuck Place Children’s Hospice provides specialized pediatric palliative care services for B.C. children and support for their families. This new funding will complement the $1.5 million in provincial funding announced in November 2010 to Canuck Place for the construction of a new children’s hospice in Abbotsford. This expansion of Canuck Place will help meet the growing need for pediatric palliative services for B.C. families living outside of Metro Vancouver. The new 2,800-square-metre (30,000square-foot) hospice includes 10 beds with suites for five families. Almost half of the families currently served by Canuck Place reside in the Fraser Valley region. By locating the new hospice in Abbotsford, the program will be available closer to home for many families in the Fraser Valley and Interior. The new Canuck Place Children’s Hospice will be known as Dave Lede House, in honour of Dave Lede, the lead donor of the capital campaign.

You can lose yourself when you become an adult. I lost myself after I graduated from high school. My experience at Tamanawis Secondary school had been so wonderful that I think I expected my post-grad experience to be the same. My teachers saw my intelligence, not my disability. It was such a supportive community. I was never teased and was always included. My disability seemed invisible. I knew I was in a wheelchair, but I didn’t really feel like I was because everyone there treated me like a normal person. After I graduated, I felt people treated me differently and I lost my confidence. I felt like people labelled me without getting to know me. They seemed to see my wheelchair first and maybe it was my own insecurities, but it

was a hard time. I expected something totally different than what I got. That was a good learning experience. I learned that how I think about a situation can create good or bad feelings about it. I learned that if you have too many expectations you can set yourself up for failure. Life is full of learning experiences. What you go through makes you stronger. Thankfully, I’ve found adapted Bocce Ball, which I play in the Newton area. When I play adapted Bocce, I feel proud of my disability. I feel included. After I won my first game I thought about it and I realized that it had been a long time since I felt that way. Of course, I still have my moments, but I think of my team and my sport and I feel happy again. If you’re out of high school and going through what I was, find something that you love. I did! It took almost two years, but now I feel proud of my identity again. Remember, always stay true to yourself. Abneet Dhaliwal is a contributing columnist for Possabilities.
