Strung up for sick children The silent auction of nine donated and artfully decorated acoustic guitars, all on view at the Long & McQuade store on 104th Avenue in Surrey, will raise money for the music therapy program at B.C. Children’s Hospital. The auction started Saturday (Nov. 12) and continues until Dec. 17. “The idea is that an instrument like this would make a great Christmas gift,” said Bryan Faber (pictured), who manages the store’s guitar department. “They’re strung and playable.” For a closer look at the colourful guitars, see photos on the store’s Facebook page (Long and McQuade Musical Instruments Surrey - Official).

Inside today’s issue

City Program. Price is an expert in urban planning and a former Vancouver city councillor. He weighed in on why a municipal vote is equally important, if not more important, than a provincial or federal vote. Land use regulation is an important power that cities have, Price said. “Land use is the main one,” he said, which includes development and building permits. “That’s the main – really fundamental – shaping of the city. What goes where, what can you build, how do you get there?” Price also pointed to water and

He pointed to transportation as an example, where he said legislation is quite clear that provinces are responsible for major roads. “The federal government can’t even fund them (major roads) directly. They have to come to an agreement, as we did for the TransCanada Highway where the federal government puts up money but it goes to the provinces.” Meanwhile, municipalities have jurisdiction over local roads.

Surrey’s riot roundup

Early voters point to strong turnout

SURREY – Despite how important some experts say it is to vote municipally, voter turnout is historically low in civic elections. In Surrey’s 2008 municipal election, 24.1 per cent of eligible voters cast a ballot and in 2005, 35.1 per cent did. But Surrey’s advanced poll participation numbers are up this year, where 2.3 per cent, or 6,489 voters, came out to cast a ballot early. “We’ve had fabulous results,” said Surrey’s chief election officer Jane Sullivan. That number is up from the 2008 election, where only 1,472 people, or 0.6 per cent of eligible voters, turned out to vote early. In the 2008 general election, Surrey had 256,913 eligible voters and 61,965 ballots were cast. Voter turnout was 24.1 per cent. Sullivan said overall voter turnout in Surrey has bounced around, due to a number of factors. “It depends on the weather, it depends on the issues, it depends on who’s running,” Sullivan said of overall voter turnout. She said voter turnout was extremely high in 2005 when Mayor Doug McCallum was up against Dianne Watts. Sullivan added that the advanced polls are usually an indicator as to how overall voter turnout will play out. “Usually if the advanced is up, the regular voting is up as well,” she said.

“Who has the responsibility?” Price asked. “Well, presumably the municipality for local roads, which they do, but not the major highways. Nonetheless, the major highway is like the huge shaping course, like the Port Mann Bridge and Highway 1. “That’s opened up Surrey. It made Surrey in the 1950s and ’60s possible. So the municipality has to respond to all that. They have to build all the connecting roads, and where they zone business and industrial. “But obviously they are shaped incredibly by the decisions of the federal and provincial government.” He said for that reason you can’t separate out distinct powers because one has such an effect on the other. Price said Surrey is a good example, now that it has made a commitment to development to what will be “pretty inarguably” one of the most significant suburban downtowns in the region. “You can see again, the city’s ability to shape land use to make these capital decisions, such as the library, that then attract economic activity, great public spaces, university, transit,” he said. “As Surrey becomes more urban, it’s fundamentally shaped by the decisions that come out of Surrey city hall.” But, he said it started with investments from the province, such as to extend SkyTrain. And then there are the bridges and the roads that opened it up in the first place. “It starts with big capital infrastructure decisions made by senior governments, that the local governments then have to respond to.” Asked about the immediate effects of having

underqualified representatives in municipal seats, Price said there wouldn’t be much change because municipalities are well managed by senior staff. “Basically, in our system, we have fairly weak councils, and certainly weak mayors – they are just one vote on council,” he said. “They have a big impact on leadership and city policy, but almost all cities have city managers and then senior staff who basically run the day-to-day operations.” Price added major change “couldn’t happen overnight.”

WHY GOOD TRUSTEES MATTER

What about school trustees? What do they do and why should you vote for them? The Surrey school district states the main tasks of the school trustees are to determine educational goals and priorities, set district budgets according to those goals and priorities, establish policies, plan for the future of the district and communicate with the people of Surrey and White Rock about educational issues.

Surrey school superintendent Mike McKay said it’s important to vote for school trustees, because the board of education makes sure the dollars are effectively spent and the resources are well managed. “I think that it’s important to remind people that, for a very small piece of time on Saturday, they can exercise their franchise and make a difference. And boards of education do make a difference. They set the budgets, they approve the allocation of resources and they make a difference where it matters most,” McKay said. McKay said that school trustees are an excellent conduit for the voice of the community to reach staff. “These are people who have a passion for education. They work really hard at being advocates. They are also, as necessary, thoughtful critics. They ask challenging questions. They hold the system accountable, they hold the staff accountable, they hold me accountable.” McKay said good trustees are particularly important in Surrey, which has such a large young population. “The habits of a lifetime get developed in lots of ways, in the neighbourhoods and the homes first of all, but also very much in our schools.” McKay pointed to the recent announcement that Surrey grad rates are the highest ever and are above the provincial average. “It’s important that we get schooling right.” McKay said that voting for councillor and mayoral candidates is equally important. “At the local levels, municipalities and boards of education, that’s the closest impact that a person in the neighbourhood can have on the way things are run.”

Young entrepreneur ecstatic to be ‘kid at G20 party’ Kwantlen student was among 30 Canadians to attend summit in France Amy Reid

Now staff twitter@amyreid87

SURREY – A Surrey student entrepreneur represented Canada at the G20 Young Entrepreneur Summit, held in Nice, France from Oct. 31 to Nov. 2. Kassandra Linklater, a Kwantlen Polytechnic University political science major, was one of 30 young Canadian entrepreneurs – and one of six from B.C. – who formed the official Canadian delegation at the annual international summit. About 400 entrepreneurs from G20 countries took part. Linklater, who is a member of Kwantlen’s Presidential Ambassadorial Team as well as the board of governors, said she applied for the G20 YES summit “without a hope” but was ecstatic to be selected, “not only to put Surrey entrepreneurship on the map but to represent myself as a student entrepreneur, Kwantlen and my company as well.”

Kassandra Linklater is a young entrepreneur in Surrey. (Photo: AMY REID) Linklater is a co-founder of D.L. Strategic Online Media Corporation. At the summit, delegates worked together to identify the ways that governments and business communities can best harness the potential of young entrepreneurs, while also driving public policy, raising awareness and

providing a voice for young entrepreneurs around the globe. The resulting recommendations were handed over to the G20 leaders on Nov. 3. “The over-arching component of the program was to put together a communique,” Linklater said, adding

the goal is to get G20 leaders to issue an entrepreneurial declaration: “A recognition by the leaders on how important entrepreneurship is for fostering growth in the economy, creating jobs and creating innovation.” Linklater said most of the delegates had multi-million dollar companies with several hundred employees and, while she was overwhelmed to be the “kid at the party,” she felt affirmed about her mindset and what she is trying to accomplish. Linklater’s company started University Confidential, an online publication (myuniversityconfidential.com) designed to help students acquire the skills needed to make the most out of their university experience. The publication draws on the expertise from a panel of “trailblazers” from coast to coast who have successfully maximized their university experience. The company has four full-time employees and more than 40 writers. “Our little company is growing so quickly,” she said. “I think that people realize that young people do have solutions to things.”

Police – fake and real

SURREY – Folks might be wondering what a bunch of Boston Police cruisers, an ambulance and a busy crowd was doing behind crime scene tape at the corner of University Drive and 108th Avenue in Whalley on Wednesday afternoon. A film crew was shooting an episode of The Fringe – a sci-fi television show that follows the adventures of the FBI’s “Fringe Division” as they investigate parallel universe action and such in Boston, Mass. At the same time, in real police news, Princess Margaret secondary in Newton was under a “code red” lockdown for about half an hour while Mounties had their dogs out searching for four burglary suspects. Police said the suspects – one with a handgun – broke into a house in the 7100-block of 129A Street at about 11 a.m. After forcing their way in, they got into a scuffle with a resident who was later treated in hospital for minor injuries.

Delta struggles to process teacher’s alleged sex crime Jessica Kerr

Postmedia News

DELTA – Delta Secondary and the community have been left reeling after a teacher was arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a student. “Obviously this is really difficult on a school,” principal Terry Ainge said this week. He added staff and students are still processing the turn of events.

Ainge said school counsellors are available to help anyone and Delta police have had additional school liaison officers at the Ladner high school since the arrest. On Nov. 4, officers were called to the school after a female student reported that an unknown adult male had sexually assaulted her near the school’s gym. The department’s sexual offence unit launched an investigation that resulted in the arrest of a 43-year-old teacher on Nov. 6.

He was released from police custody on a promise to appear in court and with several conditions, including: no direct or indirect contact with the victim or any witnesses; stay away from the school; and have no contact with any female under the age of 16. Although the arrest was made Nov. 6, police didn’t release details to the public until Nov. 10. Police have recommended charges of sexual assault and sexual interference.

Police cannot release the name of the suspect until Crown counsel approves charges. The teacher was immediately suspended with pay upon his arrest, said Delta school district spokesperson Deneka Michaud. Investigators are asking anyone who may have information about this, or any other similar incidents, to call Delta police at 604946-4411.

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.

Envision’s Angel Tree program kicks off season

SURREY – Envision Financial encourages everyone to be an angel this year, or least help spread holiday cheer. The Angel Tree program is on now at 15 participating locations, including the Envision branch at 100-15355 Fraser Hwy. in Surrey, where a Christmas tree is decorated with angels bearing the name of a local child or senior. Members of the public are encouraged to take angel from the tree and return it with a new, unwrapped gift by Dec. 3. All gifts and cash donations will be delivered to a local non-profit agency or Christmas Bureau. “There are many families in need in our communities who may not have the resources to purchase Christmas gifts for their children,” said Susan Byrom, manager of corporate citizenship. “By participating in Angel Tree, local residents have the opportunity to make the holidays brighter for these families. Last year the campaign started with four Envision branches and benefited children in Delta and Surrey. This year it has expanded region-wide to support eight communities.

AGROPUR OPENS NEW FACILITY

National dairy co-operative Agropur opened the doors of its new distribution centre in Delta Tuesday to give suppliers, customers and city officials a tour of its state-of-the-art facility. The 26,000-square-foot distribution centre at 8198 92nd St. will employ 65 people as Agropur expects to have some 2 million litres of dairy – 180,000 litres of frozen and 1,820,000 litres of cooler products – pass through the facility each month. “Delta is the perfect location for us,” said Mike Dick, vice-president of Western Canada Agropur Division Natrel. “The proximity to the Island Farms’ production facility on Vancouver Island the city’s central location in the Lower Mainland made Delta an obvious choice to build our distribution centre.”

LEGION DONATES $4,000 TO SMH

The Crescent Beach Royal Canadian Legion #240 has presented Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation with $4,000. The donation is their second this year, after an earlier $1,000 made during the 100 Days to Give campaign. Since 1999, the branch has contributed nearly $60,000 to the hospital. The newest donation will go toward the purchase of pocket talkers, which help staff communicate with patients who need help hearing but don’t have a hearing aid.

Flushing of watermains is required to remove sediments and to maintain water quality. This may result in your water supply appearing cloudy due to the sediments. Since some staining of laundry may result and some industrial processes may be affected, we recommend the following.

“We want to bring attention to what we’ve done. We want to engage citizens, and work with them and their ideas on how to build things with this data that we’ve made available.” So, the city is inviting thinkers, designers, programmers and anyone else who wants to help build web-based apps, mobile apps and mashups to join them. But participants don’t have to know how to build apps to take part, Simpson said.

“I can’t build apps, but I thought of the app that tells me when a development application occurs in my neighbourhood,” he said. “We’re looking for people who have ideas.” If successful, the city would look at doing hackathon events annually.

Securities commission bans Surrey businessman from B.C. market for life

may have been perfect – snow is in the forecast for this weekend, not to mention lots of rain. (Photo: KAM BAINS)

SURREY – A B.C. Securities Commission hearing panel has banned Surrey businessman Michael Kyaw Myint Hua Hu from the B.C. securities market for life and fined him $1.5 million for illegal insider trading and lying to commission investigators. In July, the hearing panel found that between Sept. 24 and Oct. 12, 2007, Hu bought nearly $1 million worth of shares of Maple Leaf Reforestation Inc., at prices ranging from 82 cents to $1.30. Maple Leaf Reforestation is a Calgary-based company that trades on the TSX Venture Exchange. At the time, Hu served as the company’s chairman, and worked from Maple Leaf ’s office in Vancouver. The panel found that, when Hu bought his shares, he was aware that the company was negotiating a memorandum of understanding to build a bio diesel plant in China. The panel also found that Hu purchased the shares though a CIBC online brokerage account owned by a woman named Li Ping Tian, whom Hu had earlier met through a dating service.

NEWS Meet Surrey’s latest ‘Civic Treasures’ The latest Business and the Arts reception paid tribute to the five newest recipients of Surrey’s “Civic Treasures” award, which recognizes and celebrates achievements of people involved in arts and culture. This year’s winners of the award are Sheila Symington, Bonnie Burnside, Ed Milaney, George Zukerman and Lucille Lewis. They each wore a Joseph Chiang-designed Civic Treasures Award medallion at the Nov. 9 event, held at Surrey Arts Centre. The event also celebrated recent renovations at the arts centre’s main stage, a job that included the installation of new seats in the theatre. Symington is a founding member of The Painters Group, now known as South Surrey/ White Rock Arts Society. Zukerman, an acclaimed bassoonist, is known for launching the hugely popular White Rock Concerts series several decades ago. Milaney earned his award for being known as a “walking historian” of Surrey. Lewis launched Surrey Symphony Society in 1976 and helped it grow to become an important organization for young musicians in the city. Burnside is a strong and very active backer of the arts and special events, especially in Whalley and surrounding areas.

Election – Surrey

Prominence of mayor makes vote interesting ViewFrom TheCheap Seats Michael Booth

I

t’s mid-November, which means two of my favourite sporting events are running their course — the Canadian Football League’s Grey Cup and municipal elections. Unlike the American Super Bowl, the Grey Cup game is usually tremendous entertainment with plenty of big moments and exciting plays that keep viewers enthralled regardless of who they are rooting for. Like the football game, the upcoming Surrey civic election features two teams squaring off in pursuit of victory. However, while the football players are rewarded with a couple of months off to savour their accomplishments, the real work is just beginning for our soon to be elected (or re-elected as the case may be) politicians. A couple of months ago, the prospect of a civic election in Surrey this year promised all the nail-biting

drama inherent in a Harlem Globetrotters basketball game against their perennial patsies, the Washington Generals. Mayor Dianne Watts and her Surrey First machine would roll to another win at the polls and business would continue as usual. And who knows, that may indeed be the way things play out. Watts has proven to be a very capable mayor over two terms in the Big Chair and, along with Vancouver’s Moonchild Robertson, is arguably one of the most high-profile civic politicians in the province. Don’t believe it? Quick – name the mayor of Victoria. Kelowna? Richmond? All are major centres in B.C. but their civic leaders would have a hard time being recognized outside their city limits. But the prominence of Watts is one of the things that make this election interesting. If she fails to be re-elected Saturday, it will be a massive upset, so for the sake of argument, let us assume she’s back for another three years. That means the question voters should keep in

the back of their minds is, then what? Given her profile on the provincial scene, it’s highly unlikely she will be back seeking a fourth term in 2014. The Liberal government in Victoria is bumbling from one self-created mess to another while displaying the attention span of a seagull in a garbage dump. The NDP is hardly much better but of late the lefties have mastered the art of staying out of the way while the Grits take careful aim at the few remaining toes they have. From this corner, it looks like Watts is positioning herself quite smartly. Let the provincial politicians eat their young for the next year or so and after the next B.C. election, she can ride in like Joan of Arc to clean up the mess and save a battered party.

From a Surrey perspective, the vote on Saturday is as much about the next three years as it is the future leadership of the city in the years that follow. Who among the candidates is best suited to step into Watts’ high-heeled shoes?

INDEPENDENT’S DAY?

No matter what the level of government, every election attracts candidates from across the political – and mental stability – spectrum. There are the ultraserious contenders tied to political parties, there are the one-issue candidates fearlessly charging at windmills of injustice, and then there is the tin foil hat crowd who are in it just for giggles – I wanna repeal the law of gravity, change to driving on the left side

of the road instead of the right (not all at once of course, it will be a gradual implementation) and serve cat food at council meetings. Hey look Bobby, I’m on TV! One thing I am impressed with in this election is the quality of some of the independent candidates for Surrey council. While the slates from Surrey First and the Surrey Civic Coalition naturally dominate the scene, there are alternatives out there. Surrey’s grand civic warhorse, Judy Higginbotham has returned from self-imposed exile and offers a wealth of experience, ignoring of course her poor choice of positioning herself as an incumbent with the “reelect” tag on her campaign literature. Yes, Judy, I know technically it may be

correct, but it still stinks of misrepresentation. With umpteen elections under her belt, she should know better. Another independent who has proven to be articulate in her approach to issues is Susan Thomas. The long-time Surrey resident with an impressive resumé may not make the cut Saturday, but the established civic parties in Surrey would be wise to keep her in mind for the future. As someone with a profound aversion to political parties, it’s nice to know I will not only be able to choose from column A and column B on election day, I can also order off the menu and not worry about wasting my vote.

Voter apathy

Not voting is just plain thoughtless OddThoughts Bob Groeneveld

T

here’s a school of thought that says you have every right not to vote this weekend – that not voting is actually a form of voting, that abstention is a legitimate expression of democracy. I didn’t go to that school. My school’s philosophy brands you as a lazy lout, a democratic couch-potato too weak between the ears to understand what you are not doing. So let me offer you some understanding. You are not accepting your responsibility as a citizen of a relatively free country. Yes, I said “relatively free.” That’s why I also used the word “responsibility” – a word that has begun to sound foreign in our techno-world of rights and privileges and that recent addition to

the common lexicon, “entitlements.” If you don’t accept your responsibilities, there will come a time when you (or maybe your kids or your kids’ kids) won’t have all those delicious rights and privileges and entitlements. It can’t happen in Canada, of course. It can only happen in countries like Afghanistan, once upon a time a bastion of democracy in the Middle East. It can only happen in countries like Argentina – once considered the Canada of the southern hemisphere. Of course, stuff that happened as far back as the 20th century can’t possibly happen in the 21st century. Nothing that happens in one century can happen in another. Can it? History never repeats itself. Does it? We’ll only barely mention the elephant in that room, as we consider some of the war crimes trials going on today, and consider comparisons to the transformation of Germany by one ne’er-do-well politician, a handful of henchmen, and a population that abrogated its responsibility to the most

basic tenets of democracy: everyone counts, and everyone must participate to count. Participating is not sitting at home and watching television on election day. It’s not going to a hockey game (or playing hockey). It’s not going shopping, or visiting the grandkids, or walking the dogs, or… anything other than voting. While the concept of abstaining has some democratic validity, let’s face it: the last time you didn’t vote, it wasn’t because you had carefully weighed all the choices, considered all the possible consequences, and decided that, in the final analysis, all possible choices were so repugnant that abstaining from voting was the only rational choice left to you. It wasn’t because you had thoughtfully decided that abstention was a more valuable form of exercising your democratic non-vote that making the effort to go to the polling station, accept a ballot and deliberately spoil it. It was because you had “something better”

to do that day. Rather than conscientiously determining that no candidate was acceptable within your moral framework, you didn’t bother. You hadn’t bothered to read about the candidates in your local community newspaper. You hadn’t bothered to pay attention to the extensive work that community and regional or even national reporters had done on your behalf to present you with the necessary information to make an informed decision. You hadn’t bothered to accept a responsibility that millions – billions! – wish they had. You were lazy. And that goes double for those who vote without exercising their responsibility to know what they are doing. And the rest of us pay for your thoughtless decisions. Bob Groeneveld is editor of the Langley Advance and Maple Ridge Times, both sister papers to the Now.

Changing face of Surrey attests that art matters through public consultation. This robust and often unwieldy process serves as an important decision making resource. Mayor, council and city staff not only listened, but have made policy changes and sought funding for projects that have put Surrey on the map as a cultural capital to be taken seriously. As a South Surrey resident I am thrilled that approval has come for a $1.5-million addition

for arts programming at the recreation centre and planning development will begin for an art space in the town centre. This is big-picture thinking. This is finding a way to balance rapid growth with aesthetics and cultural values that influence vibrant city evolution. In my opinion, the dynamic, changing face of Surrey attests that art matters. Virginia Gillespie, Surrey

White Rock cops doing a great job The Editor, I was rather surprised at recent comments in the media regarding the aspersions of inadequate enforcement by the White Rock RCMP. My observation is that the we receive excellent value for our policing dollar

Celeb

and a reasonable response time for complaints. The White Rock RCMP perform a variety of traffic enforcement initiatives such as stop sign and seat belt enforcement, that are highly visible and have a deterrent value for all. There will always exist the difficult balance of not being able to be everywhere and provide proactive community policing, no matter where you reside it seems.

The issue of who pays what amount of tax in the city I am sure does not impact on how the police determine response times or enforcement of traffic infractions. Ron Eves, White Rock

The Editor, Art matters. When travelling, I visit cities large and small that demonstrate this conviction. I return nourished, educated, stimulated and often challenged by the experiences. My desire is to integrate this expanded worldview with my home view. Early in my 13 years as a Surrey resident, like many, I acknowledged the talent found in the local arts scene, but reserved my “real” cultural experiences for trips to Vancouver. I no longer feel this way. In the past three to five years, cultural funding has hit the chopping block, and yet Surrey initiated the Fusion Festival, the Newton Cultural Centre, business support for annual Civic Treasure awards, the new library with internationallyacclaimed architecture and art installations as well as increasing a remarkable public art collection. Surrey has created a cultural strategic plan

King-sized laughs at fundraiser in Newton Troy Landreville Postmedia News

A local King of comedy is set to hit the stage in Newton. Surrey-raised Simon King brings his energetic, streamof-consciousness brand of comedy to Newton Cultural Centre this Saturday night, Nov. 19. The stand-up show benefits Royal Canadian Theatre Company’s mentorship program. “I go everywhere from political to absurd, everything from a Robin Williams to a George Carlin — I’m all over the map,” King said of his comedic chops. King jumps from topic to topic with a maniacal frenetic energy, and his 100mph delivery has paid off in the form of a CTV comedy special and appearances at the Las Vegas comedy festival, LA Improv, The Comedy Store, HBO, TBS, BITE TV and The Comedy Network. His comedy CD Unfamous gets steady airplay on Sirius. King was born in Sheffield, England and moved to Canada with his family when he was in Grade 5. His love for performing started at a very young age. “It started on stage when I was a kid,” he said. “I was an actor and moved through the ranks of show business, and did sketch and improv, then music for a while, before I found standup. Then a switch went off and I was like, ‘Oh, I’m a standup comic!” King describes himself as an “external comic” who draws content from the world around him. While he admits he’s “edgy,” King said he would never say anything he can’t defend or doesn’t believe himself. He hopes his comedy comes off as intelligent, adding “I also try to do it classy in a way. I’m not going to go up there and say things that make people uncomfortable. There’s a method to the madness for me.”

Not that there’s anything wrong with pushing the boundaries, as some comedians are apt to do, he said. “The way I look at comedy, is that it’s like the music world: For every Bob Dylan, there’s a Nickelback,” he said. “There’s going to be different styles and I’m glad of that. It gives everybody a chance to see what they want.” To those thinking about seeing King live, he has this advice: don’t be afraid to sit in the front two rows. He doesn’t target audience members and said folks sitting in his sight lines won’t get hurt, “unless I topple over.” “I have a list of things in my head I want to talk about,’ he said. “The only time I interact with the audience is if I’m hosting a show or I’m being heckled. “My job is to be quicker than people in the audience. I’m trying to be quick and witty, and hopefully I can outwit a drunk guy.” He elaborated on that point, saying he’s very passionate if provoked. “I’m like a bear at the circus: I won’t go at you unless you poke a stick at me,” he said. After living in L.A., King returned to Vancouver, where he has made his home for the past 18 months. He loves living in Vancouver because the audiences in the Lower Mainland are smart and keep comedians on a short leash. “If you do well in Vancouver, you have pretty good stuff,” he said. Tickets to King’s comedy show in Newton are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. For ticket information, visit www.rctheatreco.com or call 604-594-2700. Newton Cultural Centre is located at 13530 72nd Ave. Meanwhile, the next show staged by Royal Canadian Theatre Company is the panto Sword in the Stone, which hits the Surrey Arts Centre’s main stage from Dec. 16-31.

“I’m all over the map,” says Simon King of his brand of comedy, on stage Saturday, Nov. 19 at Newton Cultural Centre in a benefit show for Royal Canadian Theatre Company’s mentorship program.

“My job is to be quicker than people in the audience. I’m trying to be quick and witty, and hopefully I can outwit a drunk guy.… I’m like a bear at the circus: I won’t go at you unless you poke a stick at me.

Few people in Canada know about Ola Onabule, but that isn’t stopping the acclaimed British singer from flying to B.C. for three gigs next week. One concert on this tour is Friday, Nov. 25 at Surrey’s Bell Performing Arts Centre — a venue some four times the size of White Rock’s Coast Capital Playhouse, which Onabule filled to capacity for a performance in June 2010. That gig, along with the jazz/soul singer’s coming tour here, was planned by the production company of Phil Q. Davey, who is a big fan of Onabule’s vocals. His other concert dates in B.C. are in North Vancouver (Nov. 27) and Victoria (Nov. 30). For the tour, Onabule is bringing a sixpiece band (two brass, drums, bass, guitar and keys). “It’s daunting, but in a positive way,” Onabule said of his coming tour of B.C., in a phone interview from his home in Bedford, England, located about 30 miles north of London. “Playing in front of new people, especially in such a geographically diverse location compared to England, it puts a bit of the old juice back in the machine, revved up for the challenge. It’s a nervous excitement, instead of fearinducing.”

CITY OF SURREY OPEN HOUSE

I’m a shy person anywhere but in front of an audience.… I’m part musician and part geek.

‹ from page 20

Onabule has seven albums to his name, each self-produced and blessed with his unique and often powerful vocals — an intimate whisper one moment and an earthshaking eruption the next. He was a featured act at the 2009 edition of Montreal’s big jazz fest, and has shared the stage with Gladys Knight, Diane Reeves, Patti LaBelle, Al Jarreau, Natalie Cole and others. Some heartfelt ballads and flat-out funk numbers can be heard on Seven Shades Darker, Onabule’s latest album. With his three children now in their lateteens, the singer has more time to record his music at a garden-side studio at home. “Essentially, I’m a touring guy — I’m a shy person anywhere but in front of an audience,” Onabule said.“I like the studio, too — all those knobs and faders and sounds and dials. That’s intense, too. I’m part musician and part geek. I love finding the best place to have the

AT

mic and all that stuff, as well as songwriting and that aspect of music.” Early in adulthood, Onabule studied law until his third year, when he began to focus more on music. Vocally, he picked up on the many influences of his relatives — the jazz of his cousins and the Tom Jones sounds so loved by his mother, along with Frank Sinatra, the Beatles and more. “I kind of pilfered bits that I like, from whatever genre they came from,” Onabule explained.“I didn’t have any formal training, and my approach kind of comes from that angle, because I came to (performing) music so late in my life.” In Britain, the size of Onabule’s audiences runs from smallish clubs to large halls. Whatever the stage, he trusts his band to play what has become a diverse collection of songs in his name.“A couple of the guys in the band have played with the Irish soul singer — what’s his name?…. Yeah, Van Morrison. With him, the musicians are given something like 300 songs to play, and they’re expected to pretty much learn them all, because you never know which one Van will call out next,” Onabule said with a laugh, adding,“it’s not quite like that with me, however.” Opening for Onabule at the Bell on Nov. 25 is local soul/blues band Star Captains. Tickets for the 8 p.m. concert are $45 at the venue’s box office, 604-507-6355 or www. bellperformingartscentre.com. To hear Onabule’s music online, visit olasmusic.com.

Cole fired up after singing on TV’s ‘Ellen’ Young Langley crooner gave his career a boost after winning a Now-sponsored talent contest in Cloverdale Roxanne Hooper

Postmedia News rhooper@langleyadvance.com

Since appearing and performing on an episode of the Ellen DeGeneres Show — before an estimated 1.7 million viewers — less than a month ago, he admits the floodgates have opened.

He was recently featured on ET Canada and Fanny Kiefer shows last week, among other TV shows, and will perform at the B.C. Country Music Awards this coming Sunday, Nov. 20.

Another spinoff of being featured on Ellen’s show came last Sunday, when Cole performed the national anthem at the Canucks’ game against New York Islanders. And his next biggest gig — second to Ellen — comes Friday, Nov. 18 for the Kids Help Kids event, a gig that was in the works long before his guest appearance on Ellen. At the fundraiser, he’s been asked to perform five songs that he hopes David Foster himself will be there to hear. “I’m so looking forward to meeting him,” Cole said. “I’m so excited, and for it to be my show, it’s pretty cool. I haven’t had that yet.” see › page 23

A Message from the 111711

Advertising on the side of a tractortrailer definitely gets word out to a large segment of the motoring public on the local roadways each day — just ask Langley’s Cole Armour, whose mug has been affixed to a semi to help promote an upcoming Kids Help Kids benefit event supporting the David Foster Foundation. This 12-year-old Willoughby kid has been asked to headline the first annual Vegasstyle benefit gala aimed at raising money to support Canadian families with children in need of lifesaving organ transplants. And as part of the promotional efforts, the Grade 8 Langley Fine Arts School student has his picture plastered on a truck. “My head is so big —it’s really, really cool,” Cole said. But it’s fair to say this young singing sensation isn’t hurting for publicity or public recognition.

Cole Armour began his ascent to the big leagues in 2009, when he won the Surrey Now-sponsored B.C. Junior Talent Search at Cloverdale Rodeo & Country Fair.

Tickets for the dinner and show are $125, or just $55 for the show only from www. ticketmaster.ca. Cole is only 12, but his vocal ability shatters all age barriers. Cole was just nine years old when he discovered the power of music and with that he realized the enjoyment he gave other people when they heard him sing, Cole began his ascent to the big leagues in 2009, when he won the Surrey Nowsponsored B.C. Junior Talent Search at the Cloverdale Rodeo & Country Fair, and a few months later became the first child to win Canada’s prestigious Red Robinson Talent Showdown at the PNE. At the contest in Cloverdale, Cole sang a version of Eric Carmen’s mid-1970s power ballad “All By Myself,” the same song he sang for Ellen’s audience on TV. “He was amazing at the B.C. Junior Talent Search — he won hand’s down after hitting those high notes,” said Margot Gauley, who

He won hand’s down after hitting those high notes (of Eric Carmen’s ‘All By Myself’. produces the yearly talent contest. It’s fair to say Cole’s singing career is taking off a little faster than he and his family anticipated, in large part due to his appearance on Ellen’s TV show. “I thought it was going to take a few more years before I started doing things like this, but I was wrong,” Cole said. But there was little question, when he found his voice, that he was destined for some great things, boasts his father Ron. Admittedly, the surge in Cole’s popularity is a bit of a strain, but he said he’s learning to juggle his time between school, recording and performing upward of five events a week.“It’s hard at times,” he said.“But I’m loving it.” Six weeks ago, Cole was in Nashville recording six songs for his debut album, which he hopes to release early next year. In the meantime, he’s hoping to finish writing a few more songs with his mother Lori, aspires to take up piano lessons soon and hopes to learn how to build a ventriloquist dummy.

DIAMOND SHINES SUNDAY IN SURREY

I have 13 recordings, and I can still find something to write about.” twitter.com@tomzillich

much larger sales. The first of these is this weekend at First United Church, at 15385 Semiahmoo Ave. On Friday, Nov. 18 and Saturday, Nov. 19 (from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days) you can pick up all kinds of Yuletide treasures. Here you’ll find Christmas trees, including fibre optic models, Christmas linens – some of which are vintage pieces – as well as stuffies, CDs, books, china with holiday themes and many other things to either give as gifts or use to decorate your own home. The “Christmas on the Peninsula” sale is Saturday, Nov. 26 at the Star of the Sea hall, 15262 Pacific Ave. It also runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Each event has free admission, and proceeds go to providing patient comforts at Peace Arch Hospital. In particular, Bleiler said, the Aquarius Group supports the seniors in the extended care wing. These patients require special chairs and have other special needs, which the group works to provide to make their lives more comfortable.

WHITE ROCK – It’s time to get into the Christmas spirit, but if you’re not quite in the mood just yet, a series of sales will help. Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary Society Aquarius Group is hosting its largest ever series of fundraising sales featuring all things Christmas. “This is the project our group works on all year,” said Lyn Bleiler. “It’s fun doing this with our group.” And, she noted, “We have a lot of nice pieces this year.” There are smaller events where tables set up in the hospital, offering smaller items, on Nov. 30, Dec. 5 and 8. These are items specifically put aside for these days, not leftovers from the larger sales. These small items include snow globes, Santa figurines, baubles, and Christmas mugs done up with packet of hot chocolate or other goodies inside, and wrapped up to make a mini basket type of gift, Bleiler said.

t was a dark and stormy night. The wind whipped, rain obscured the windows and the dark sky was punctuated by bursts of brilliance from lightning strikes. It was not the kind of night you want to be driving into Vancouver from Surrey for any reason, let alone for the opening night of a show for which you have left tickets at home. Rain-lashed and late, I did arrive at the Stanley Theatre in time for the opening of Irving Berlin’s White Christmas, the Musical. It was worth braving the weather and, believe me, the last thing I wanted at that time was to have a white Christmas. Snow does not belong in the city. Ever — except maybe on stage. Not really fond of driving in a storm either, but you have to admit that “a dark and stormy night” is a good line for the beginning of a story. The Arts Club is bringing back White Christmas for the third year in a row. The previous years have had sold-out runs,

Musical ‘Snowman’ concert involves movie for Surrey Symphony Society at Chandos ‹ from page 34

Surrey Symphony Society’s annual Christmas concert is really special this year. First of all, it will be the first year that Lucille Lewis will not be at the helm of the Youth Orchestra. Dr. Rick Dorfer will man the baton for Surrey Youth Orchestra, Carla Birston conducts the Intermediate Strings and Erin van Kooten guides the Junior Strings. The concert is “The Snowman in a Musical Wonderland” and features live orchestral accompaniment for the animated classic, The Snowman. This will be a big-screen presentation, and as far as I recall is a first for the Symphony Society – making music for a movie. “The Christmas season is a time that brings people together,” Dorfer said. “It is with joy that we present a program that includes a masterwork like the Mendelssohn’s ‘Italian Symphony’ while

also bringing together the Junior Strings and the Youth Orchestra to present three English carols in Vaughan Williams’ ‘Fantasia on Christmas Carols.’” The narrator at the beginning of the film refers to the day he built the snowman as being “magical,” and that is the best word to describe the experience of seeing an orchestra of fine young people bring the score, and the snowman, to life. “The kids are really excited about this concert,” said symphony GM Anna Russell, “so they’ve been working really hard. And I call them ‘kids’ because I’m way older, but the rehearsals are sounding amazing — these are serious musicians. I can’t wait to hear the performance.” This magical musical experience is at Chandos Pattison Auditorium (10238 168th St., Surrey), on Sunday, Dec. 4, a 7 p.m. start. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for students and seniors. It’s a big theatre, so tickets will be available at the door or by phone (604-856-8947) or email (gm. surreysymphony@gmail.com). And there you have it: magical musical experiences just waiting for your participation. Stormy nights and snow not necessarily included.

‘Toy Story 3’ ice stars at Central City Nov. 22 If your wee ones ever wanted a chance to get up close with Buzz Lightyear or Woody – two of the beloved characters from Disney’s Toy Story 3 – then they have a chance to do so on Tuesday, Nov. 22. That’s when Buzz and Woody will be at Central City Shopping Centre, 102nd Avenue and King George Boulevard. The two characters are appearing courtesy of the Disney On Ice Toy Story 3 show, which is set to hit the ice at Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver Nov. 23-27 and in Abbotsford from Nov. 18-20. Buzz and Woody are making a special stop in Surrey as part of a fundraiser for Surrey Christmas Bureau. Children who want to attend the meet-and-greet with Buzz and Woody are asked to bring a new unwrapped toy for the Christmas bureau. This is the perfect time of year for children in Surrey to help less fortunate youngsters in their own city. Each year, the bureau assists hundreds of low-income families with children under the age of 16. Through its hamper and Adopt-A-Family

programs, these families receive food certificates, toys, gifts, warm clothing and household items. “On behalf of Blackwood Partners Management Corp. and Central City, we are thrilled to be partnering with the Surrey Now to welcome Disney to downtown Surrey,” said marketing and communications manager Michelle Mackay. “This is a wonderful opportunity for our community to get close and personal with two famous Disney characters from Toy Story 3, Buzz Lightyear and Woody, for a good cause! “Central City is becoming known as ‘the place where things happen’ and we thank both the Now and Disney for this wonderful opportunity.” The meet-and-greet and toy drive will take place from noon to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 22 near Bed, Bath and Beyond. The meetand-greet is limited to the first 200 children. For more on how you can help the Surrey Christmas Bureau, visit www. christmasbureau.com. The

Buzz and Woody, stars of the Disney on Ice Toy Story 3 show in Vancouver and Abbotsford this month, will be at Central City Shopping Centre on Tuesday, Nov. 22. Children who want to attend the meet-and-greet with Buzz and Woody are asked to bring a new unwrapped toy for the Christmas bureau. See story for more details.

‘Anxiety’ at Surrey Christmas Bureau Marisa Babic

Now staff twitter@marisababic

SURREY — Worried that they won’t make it onto Santa’s list, some of the city’s

needy have been lining up at Surrey Christmas Bureau’s door as early as 5 a.m. “The anxiety is there,” said Surrey Christmas Bureau co-ordinator K.C. Gilroy, who often pauses

Those in need line up early at doors of hamper distribution site, at old Whalley library this year, and donations only trickling in

to chat with the early birds when she unlocks the bureau’s doors for the day. Registration for Christmas hampers and the Adopt-a-Family program started on Nov. 9 and continues until Dec. 2. Gilroy said volunteers are registering about 100 families a day. In total, the bureau expects to register about 2,000 families for Christmas hampers and toys for their kids. For this year’s operations, the agency has set up shop at the old Whalley Library near the Central City SkyTrain station, which moved to its new digs in September, after getting the nod from the City of Surrey. Although the arrangement is temporary, volunteers are happy to have the spot. The ample space has allowed volunteers to set up a comfortable waiting area lined with chairs. In some previous years, cramped quarters have forced clients to wait their turn outside. Once their number is called, clients are led upstairs to another waiting area that has a small TV and a few toys to keep the little ones occupied until a registration volunteer is free. “We’re really blessed to get this space,” said volunteer Angela Neufeld, who volunteers at the Christmas bureau all day,

then pulls a four-hour night shift at Surrey Memorial Hospital. One year, Neufeld scrambled to find the only gift one young lad asked for: an old game for his dated PlayStation. For her troubles, she was rewarded with a huge smile that melted her heart. “It’s more fun than any paid job I’ve ever had,” she said, beaming. Although the registration numbers are strong, Gilroy says donations of toys and cash are failing to keep up. Gilroy said Surrey Christmas Bureau needs to raise $250,000 and is only half way to meeting its target, and about $50,000 below where it should be in its fundraising goal at this stage of the campaign. “We’re below last year, definitely.” Since teens are always tough to buy for, donations of gifts for this age group is especially meager. Gilroy suggests makeup kits for the girls and games for the guys, and gift cards make it easy for the donor and usually please the recipient. Donations of unwrapped new toys can be dropped off at Surrey Christmas Bureau at 10347 City Parkway or any Surrey fire hall. Cash donations can be made online at www. christmasbureau.com.

Central City Shopping Centre has partnered with Surrey Christmas Bureau to operate a gift-wrapping booth at the mall’s customer service desk for the month of December. Shoppers can have their purchased presents festively wrapped by volunteers, making them all ready to go under the tree. This service is by donation and all proceeds go directly to Surrey Christmas Bureau. Volunteers are needed. The mall will provide all paper, scissors, tape and bows. It will just take a few volunteer shifts of people to come share their holiday spirit and make magic happen for others. Staff teams, service clubs, churches, schools and groups of friends and are invited to “Sponsor a Wrap Day” to share some holiday cheer while they wrap gifts for a good cause. To get involved, contact K.C. Gilroy by phone, 604-5819623, or email coordinator@christmasbureau.com.

ARTS & LIFE At the movies

Edward settles down in ‘Breaking Dawn,’ out Friday Bob Thompson Postmedia News

The always easygoing Robert Pattinson reckons he’ll have a life after the Twilight of his career, but he’s just not sure what it will be. “I’m still trying to figure out where I’m at,” the 25-year-old says recently at a Beverly Hills hotel. “Although it has been fun, it’s totally bizarre to me.” The “it” is the unrelenting fame that has washed over him since 2008, when he introduced himself as vampire Edward Cullen in the first Twilight movie. The notoriety was compounded by the release of Eclipse and New Moon. And now the final Stephenie Meyer book, Breaking Dawn, gets a much-anticipated twopart movie treatment with the Bill Condondirected The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, which opens Friday (Nov. 18). Part 2 hits theatres in November 2012. Rather than complain about the lifealtering spotlight, the laidback Pattinson mostly shrugs off the lack of privacy over the last three years. “I guess it’s presented a whole variety of obstacles, in terms of trying to grow and figure out who I want to be,” he says.

I guess it (the Twilight series) has presented a whole variety of obstacles, in terms of trying to grow and figure out who I want to be. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, which opens Friday (Nov. 18).

“It’s like having a very complicated maze to go through. And you’re also being propelled by some kind of jet, trying to figure out how to go through the maze at the same time.” Of course, the worldwide series of interviews for Breaking Dawn – Part 1 reignites the passionate flames of dedicated

“Twihards.” But at least, says the actor, he can discuss Edward’s new attitude in the latest movie. “Edward’s been stuck in adolescence,” Pattinson says. “He’s been living that for a hundred years. So, I was trying to push for that angle of change. “It’s funny, but Bill (Condon) was the

first person to say, ‘Look, I want to put this at the forefront, because Breaking Dawn is probably the happiest Edward’s been in the series.” The actor admits he has more or less played Edward as a human, not a 108-yearold vampire, from the first film onward. In Breaking Dawn, “Edward gets content by finding a woman, and having a child, which is how I guess a lot of troubled guys balance themselves out.”

ARTS & LIFE New on DVD/blu-ray

Coming-of-age story told with action, effects J.J. Abrams’ Super 8 stars Elle Fanning and Joel Courtney.

Julie Crawford

Now contributor jcrawfordfilm@gmail.com

Super 8 Written and directed by J.J. Abrams. Starring Joel Courtney, Elle Fanning and Kyle Chandler. My rating: 8 (out of 10) Remember when you dropped a spool or reel of film off, and it took more than a week to come back? J.J. Abrams does. Not being of the sporty persuasion, Abrams spent his childhood creating Super 8 films and idolizing Steven Spielberg. While still a beardless teen, Abrams was discovered by his idol, who recruited Abrams and friends to restore his own 8mm movie collection. Now that we know about the relationship, the homage to Spielberg’s ET makes sense: outcast kids are the heroes here, big military

are the bad guys, and the kids chase alien life forms on those cool BMX bikes. Joe Lamb (Joel Courtney) and his friends are making a zombie film. It’s all Joe has been interested in since his mom died, especially since his dad (Kyle Chandler) is too busy with his own grief to deal with his son. The project gets much more interesting for Joe once underage dream girl Alice

Do You Have Hearing Loss? 0/.#/ '/!*1,-$.)/(), &"$!$, 1/!/%'. &!#(!."/##*')*!#(%+-!#*,-$&

(Elle Fanning) comes on board. But after a catastrophic train crash and all sorts of weird goings-on in their small Ohio town, the friends vow to get to the bottom of the otherworldly mystery. Along with the rollicking action and spectacular special effects comes a meaningful coming-of-age story about love, grief, friendship and redemption, from

writer/director Abrams, who does both action (Cloverfield) and heart (TV’s Felicity) equally well. His actors keep us invested until the visitor shows up in the last halfhour. Find out what Abrams was like as a kid (and see some of his childhood Super 8 creations) and how the team all got together in “The Dream Behind Super 8.” “Steven Spielberg was at the epicentre of what we were doing.” Elsewhere on the disc, “The Visitor Lives” reveals the process of creating the monster, with “creature designer” Neville Page. Commentary by Abrams, producer Bryan Burk and director of photography Larry Fong completes the special features on the standard disc.

ARTS & LIFE New exhibit

‘Dead’ aim for art students at Surrey Museum The works of Surrey school students makes for one colourful Days of the Dead exhibit, new to Surrey Museum. Students looked to their own heritage as they created artistic pieces inspired by the Latin American celebration Day of the Dead, or Dia de los Muertos. More than 200 students submitted pieces to the exhibit, focused on the theme of remembering departed loved ones. The largest work is more than eight feet tall and 15 feet wide, and the smallest are part of a series of 136 miniature shadow boxes representing scenes inspired by love, loss and respect. Media for the exhibit ranges from human hair to watercolour and fiberglass — the makings of an interesting and

colourful display. The Day of The Dead festival is 3,000 years old, dating to the Aztecs, Mayans and other indigenous ancient cultures of Mexico. Visitors to the museum can learn more about the Day of the Dead and the Latin American community at a Mexican Cultural Fiesta on Saturday, Nov. 26, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the facility in Cloverdale. The event will include traditional dances by Mexico Vivo, live mariachi music and Latin crafts. For more information call 604-592-6956. Days of the Dead is on display from Nov. 15 to Dec. 23 and is presented in partnership with School District 36. The museum is located at 17710 56A Ave.

Surrey artist Michele Miguel puts the finishing touches on “Theatre of the Soul”, a mixed-media piece part of Surrey Museum’s new feature exhibit, Days of the Dead. More than 200 local students contributed to the exhibit, which focuses on the theme of departed loved ones. (Photo: SUBMITTED)

ARTS & LIFE Book review

Memorable hockey season ends ugly (as everyone knows) Carolyn Cooke

Author Grant Kerr has chosen to use a (mostly) present-tense style to convey on paper the excitement and growing tension as the Canucks moved through each series. Unfortunately, there are some passages that revert to past tense, sometimes mid paragraph, and it breaks the spell.

Now staff twitter@carolyncooke1

The Vancouver Canucks’ 40th anniversary took the entire city and an ever-growing number of fans on professional sport’s biggest roller coaster ride and then stopped a hair short of the ultimate prize. It’s all captured in A Season to Remember: The Vancouver Canucks’ Incredible 40th Year, by Grant Kerr (Harbour Publishing). The book is a retrospective, in print and colour photos, of the highs and lows of the team’s Stanley Cup run. Kerr, a professional sports journalist who began covering the Canucks a few years before they moved up to the NHL, has also been inducted into the BC Hockey Hall of Fame, which is to say he knows his stuff. We start in the preseason with GM Mike Gillis tweaking his team to break through the glass wall that had stopped them in previous years. It covers the makeup of the team, coaching changes and other modifications, including

giving the captaincy to Henrik Sedin. The stage is set. The actual season is summed up in a very few pages, which doesn’t quite convey the effort and discipline it took for the Canucks to finish the regular season on top. The real meat of this book is the playoff run, which is detailed game by game, or more accurately, goal by goal. Kerr has chosen to use a (mostly) present-tense style to convey on paper the excitement and growing tension as the Canucks moved through each series. Unfortunately, there are some passages that revert to past tense, sometimes mid paragraph, and it

C LO V E R DA L E

breaks the spell. However, there are plenty of quotes from players, coaching staff and hockey insiders to round it out, if not much in the way of analysis. A Season to Remember works in that the reader will get caught up in Kerr’s game summaries, but any respectable fan already knows the ending. There just isn’t a satisfying way to end to the tale, as everyone — even nonfans — have the ensuing riot and destruction inextricably linked to the final game’s unwanted result. Even though the Canucks brought home a load of hardware from the awards ceremony in Las Vegas, we are left still looking for the big one.

20 things to know to cook just about anything Monica Eng

Postmedia news

On a warm spring evening at a 2009 food conference, author Michael Ruhlman was at the bar discussing kitchen skills with a powerful cookbook editor. “In between sips of his mint julep,” Ruhlman recalls, “he said to me, ‘You know, Michael, I love to cook but I don’t seem to be getting any better.’” The author replied that there are “really only about 20 things you need to know in order to cook just about

anything,’ and then I watched his eyes light up.” Two years later that conversation has produced Ruhlman’s Twenty: 20 Techniques, 100 Recipes, a Cook’s Manifesto, a thick but accessible tome aimed at taking your cooking game to the next level — no matter where you start. “People have gaps,” says Ruhlman. “I have gaps. Everyone has gaps. But that’s the great thing about food and cooking. The topic is just inexhaustible. You never know everything. It’s why cooking is never boring.” Ruhlman, who co-wrote The French Laundry Cookbook (with chef Thomas Keller) and Charcuterie (with Brian

Polcyn) and famously documented his year at the Culinary Institute of America in The Making of a Chef, notes that most of us pick up cooking skills on a need-to-know basis without a teacher at our side. But he also believes “there are too many cookbooks published each year.” So before committing to Ruhlman’s Twenty, he explored the subject of teaching cookbooks on his blog and concluded there was “no simple but systematic guide for becoming a better cook.” Not even the Culinary Institute’s The Professional Chef? “I tried to cook from it, but I didn’t understand half the terms at the time, and it’s a big text,” Ruhlman says. “I wanted something simple, something that could make my mom feel more comfortable in the kitchen. And I thought, gosh, if we just understood these basic ideas that apply to everything and explore them a bit, I think we could become better cooks.” The 20 techniques are broken up in chapters that range from Think, Salt, Water and Egg to Grill, Fry and Chill, with plenty of Butter, Batter, Sauce, Soup and Braise in between. Each chapter offers recipes and concepts that build on each other. Recipes are aimed at demonstrating techniques and building confidence while putting something delicious on the Michael Ruhlman dinner table. Each section is filled with dozens of explanatory That’s the photos (by photojournalist great thing about Donna Turner Ruhlman, the food and author’s wife) that skip the glamour shots and simply cooking. The illustrate exactly how the topic is just different stages of the dish should look in your kitchen. inexhaustible. Many of the early chapters You never know demonstrate what Ruhlman everything. It’s calls “tools,” which include salt, water, acid, onion, egg why cooking is and butter. On a recent visit never boring.” to a test kitchen, Ruhlman took on the subject of water by whipping up a weeknight coq au vin. Instead of using a dry pan, he rendered his bacon chunks and onions in three fingers of water, explaining, “The moist heat helps tenderize the bacon but also pulls out sugars from the onions that help them brown and caramelize in the pan, creating flavours we wouldn’t otherwise have. It’s a very powerful tool here to extract flavour and develop the texture you are looking for.” Later, he skipped canned chicken broth for, again, water in the sauce, saying, “Why add a mediocre canned chicken stock (he is very pro-homemade stock) when you’ve got fresh chicken, bacon, onions, garlic, bay (which) already have everything that makes a great stock.” A big fan of family meals, Ruhlman says his ultimate goal for his latest book is just to make it easier to share homecooked meals with loved ones and fill your homes with enticing, comforting aromas. “Our lives are just better when we cook for ourselves,” says a man who has worked with some of the world’s greatest chefs. “This is even truer than most people realize. Studies show that good cooking smells, for example, affect our nervous system to trigger relaxation. So it’s this natural stress reliever that we all need in our busy lives. “If we would just take some time out to cook, it’s pretty clear we would be less stressed, our families would be healthier and our chequebooks would be happier, too.”

Treat yourself with oven-dried Roma tomatoes Whatever the process, dried tomatoes are more concentrated in flavour because most of the water content has been removed during the drying process.

OnCooking Chef Dez Columnist

I

f you like tomatoes, chances are you also love the taste of robust sun-dried tomatoes. They can be purchased either packed in oil, vacuum packed or dehydrated; when buying them from the store, I like the ones packed in oil the best. The ones made from scratch, however, are even tastier. Whatever the process, dried tomatoes are more concentrated in flavour because most of the water content has been removed during the drying process. Although this recipe is called Oven “Dried” Tomatoes, they are not really dried — they are still moist but have just shrunk to approximately onethird to one-quarter of their original size and have really intense flavour. We love using these in a number of recipes such as pasta, pizza, sandwiches or even just eating them on their own, in an Italian antipasto platter with a number of other bite-sized tidbits.

The downside of this recipe is the length of time they need to be in the oven. Cooking them at a low temperature for a long period of time is the best way to extract moisture, intensify flavours, without burning them in the process. Close attention is needed in the latter part of the cooking process to ensure

that they do not get overcooked, dried out, and/or burnt. The cooking time is an approximation and will depend on a number of factors, including the size of the tomatoes, ripeness, correct calibration of your oven, etc. Do not let this scare you, however, just pay

attention, that’s all. This is a great recipe to make on a day when you are going to be home anyway and want the warm Mediterranean aromas filling your house. Since they are not completely dried, they do not last indefinitely. Once cooled, store them in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to seven days. Dry extra tomatoes and add them to pasta, sandwiches, salads, etc. Enjoy! see RECIPE ON › page 61

Its mouth is wideopen and its sharp teeth are exposed. I feel unnerved as I slide further back in my seat. “Don’t worry,” our tour guide Cloied Taylor tells me with a laugh, “caimans aren’t aggressive.” I feel myself relax a bit as the boat continues by and I spot a white-faced monkey in the trees overhead. I close my eyes as the warmth of the sun shines on my face, and feel gratitude to be in one of the most natural and beautiful places in the world: the rainforests of Costa Rica.

The national park in Tortuguero is a mustsee for anyone seeking adventure and to experience the incredible beauty of the inhabitants of its shelter. There are myriad colourful birds – such as the toucan and blue heron – the poisonous red tree frog, Howler monkeys and the Basilisk lizard, which runs across water. Tortuguero’s turtle conservancy centre, Caribbean Conservation Corporation, is a small museum that features various bones and specimens from the many marine creatures that inhabit the area, particularly the turtles that nest there throughout the year. Green sea turtles, which flock in amazing numbers between July and October, make Tortuguero a very important breeding ground for the endangered reptiles. The enormous leatherback turtles nest during March to October.

People eager to help — even the ‘Spanish challenged’ The food on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica is rich in texture and flavour. A typical dish consists of rice and beans (Caribbean style, of course) served with fried plantain, fresh fruit and a meat or fish dish. My favourite was Rondon, which is a thick stew made of fish, coconut milk, prawns and vegetables. I had it served with breadfruit, a fruit that has a potato-like flavour similar to fresh-baked bread. After visiting the Caribbean side of Costa Rica, I returned to San Jose to learn more about the emerging capital city. It’s home to two million of the four million people who live in Costa Rica. I visited Poas Volcano National Park, a 90-minute drive from San Jose. Poas is one of Costa Rica’s five active volcanoes and has erupted several times over the past century. The park contains many giant ferns and poor man’s umbrella plants; their huge leaves are nearly

three feet in diameter. From the crater lookout, I was able to see smoke wafting from it. One of the dormant craters, which is approximately 10 minutes away from the main crater, has transformed into a cold-water lagoon, known as Botos Lagoon, which flows down the mountain and feeds the Sarapiqui River. It is truly awe-inspiring. After visiting Poas Volcano National Park, I toured a nearby coffee plantation, Doka Estate. From seed to cup, I was able to learn about how coffee is grown and made. And a matter of interest, most of their beans are exported. However, five per cent of their high-grade beans are kept within Costa Rica. In San Jose, there are many “sodas,” otherwise known as a small diners/snack stops where locals dine on traditional Costa Rican dishes. There are also many takeout eateries that serve up Tacos Ticos (Costa Rican tacos), which are delectable.

No matter where I was, people were always friendly and willing to help me, especially on those days when I was a bit “Spanish challenged.” The locals are laidback and made me feel both relaxed and welcomed. There is a love of life known as “pura vida,” or “pure life”, a common saying in Costa Rica. However, it isn’t just “pure life” in theory. As a country, Costa Rica was recently rated as the happiest place in the world by the Happy Planet Index. Some may say it’s due in part to the country’s history: its army was abolished in 1949, its money and focus invested more in its people. Others say it’s because of the lush and green environment, as Costa Rica is nurturing its surroundings, and has plans to be the first carbonneutral country by 2021. However, I believe it is something much simpler: It is the happiest place on earth because the people embody “pura vida” in their culture, their food and,

Read this if you have no time to reflect Healthwise Dr. Davidicus Wong Columnist

B

usy people tend to reflect during down time, and if you’re way too busy, that down time rarely comes. It was during our annual family vacations that I would reflect on all the important areas of my life — and all the details I had neglected throughout the year. Work had a way of creeping in and expanding into every free space in my schedule and in my mind. On holidays, I would finally have time to relax, reflect and meditate, and from that perspective, I would envision how I would

change my life — how, upon my return home, I would devote the time and energy appropriate to the most valued areas of my life. After a few years, it became obvious that this was not working. Once back home, I would return to the routine of work and allow it to take over the rest of my life. To reflect on your life is like looking at the map. You have to take the time to determine where you are and how far you may be from your goal. If you instead keep speeding ahead on the same road and along the inevitable detours, you may find yourself far from where you’d like to be and sometimes moving away from your desired destination. To meditate is to look at your compass, find your bearings and determine if you are in the right place. Waiting for a convenient time to meditate is like waiting for a rest

stop or a flat tire before you take out your compass. You may find yourself far from where you ought to be, doing things you didn’t mean to do, saying things you didn’t intend and acting out of sync with your true self. When our agendas are full and our days are packed with back-to-back activity, we can feel as if we don’t have time to think let alone breathe. During those times in our lives when we are getting by on little sleep because we have so much to do and no time to lose, we need to pause more than ever. These are the times we desperately need to take our time outs, coffee breaks, meditative moments and reflection retreats. We need to schedule them into our days just as we should our regular meals, daily exercise and adequate sleep.

To do any less makes us mentally inefficient, emotionally stressed and physically exhausted. Without daily rest and reflection, sooner or later we may find ourselves desperately going nowhere or in a place far from where we would want to be. Without reflection from the perspective of our whole lives, we may simply be reacting to the demands of each day. The alternative is to be mindfully active. To be fully engaged and present, we need time each day to relax, recharge and reflect. Dr. Davidicus Wong is a physician and writer.

Game, set and batch of gluten-free muffins Do special diets really give athletes a sporting edge? Athletes and active individuals of all levels may be a little curious about pushing the dietary envelope for the sake of performance.

Jennifer Sygo

Postmedia News

If a gluten-free diet can help propel an athlete to the top of his or her sport, then does that mean it’s for you? What about dairy-free or vegan eating? With an increasing number of high profile athletes adopting less than mainstream eating habits, athletes and active individuals of all levels may be a little curious about pushing the dietary envelope for the sake of performance. Let’s take a closer look at the impact these changes can make on your performance and your lifestyle — for better or for worse.

GLUTEN-FREE DIETS

A rapidly growing trend, gluten-free eating has also become popular for elite athletes, counting the likes of world No. 1 tennis player Novak Djokovic among its followers. Djokovic made headlines this year not only for having one of the most successful years in the history of the sport, but also for attributing at least part of his success to his new dietary regime. So does that mean a gluten-free diet is a recipe for athletic success? Frankly, that depends. New research has demonstrated gluten can be an issue not only for those with fullblown celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder that causes damage to the small intestine, but also for another subset of the population who have a less severe, but still clinically significant sensitivity to gluten. These individuals can experience bloating, fatigue, headaches and other digestive ailments when they consume gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. The problem, however, is that while celiac disease can be diagnosed through blood tests and small bowel biopsy, there is no agreedupon diagnostic tool for gluten sensitivity, aside from trial and error.

Dairy-free and vegan diets also on the rise â&#x20AC;š from page 69

gluten-free eating, both financially, and in terms of the lifestyle change, however, can be significant, and need to be weighed carefully against any real or perceived benefits.

DAIRY-FREE DIETS

Dairy-free diets are on the rise, often partnered with a gluten-free diet. But will putting the kibosh on the cow give you a performance edge? Once again, that depends. While dairy is, without a doubt, a source of nutritional controversy, when it comes to sport, there is convincing evidence it can provide an edge. Whey protein, a

component of the total protein in milk products, is particularly important for muscle recovery, especially when taken in the first 30 minutes after a workout. The crucial nutrient appears to be leucine, an amino acid found plentifully in milk that triggers an anabolic (muscle-building) state. More efficient than casein (another milk protein), or vegetable protein sources like soy or peanut butter, consuming milk protein in recovery seems to be particularly helpful for athletes training on back-to-back days, or twice in the same day. Since dairy products can also play an important role in helping athletes to meet their higher-than-average protein needs, and also provide calcium and potassium for bone and muscle health, the bottom line is that dairy can give you a potential edge in both training and competition.

VEGAN DIETS

Along with the rise of gluten-free and dairy-free eating, a growing number of athletes, including hockey enforcer Georges Laraque, are choosing to go vegan, which means they avoid all animal products and by-products in their diet. While vegan eating can make meeting protein needs particularly

to your physician before you adopt a glutenfree diet.) That leaves the condition up to significant interpretation; some individuals, for example, are sensitive to wheat, but not all gluten, which means they could still enjoy other gluten-containing foods, such as spelt. So, for all the trouble it can be to follow a gluten- or wheat-free diet, what is the benefit for an athlete? Those who are genuinely sensitive to gluten may find improvements in the health of their skin and digestive health, and many report less tangible changes to energy and mental clarity that could be placebo effects. In terms of athletic performance, there is no evidence to suggest a gluten-free diet will make you faster or more efficient in your training or competition; in fact, at least one study showed that taking wheat gluten after a race actually improved recovery in a group of runners. For those who are genuinely intolerant, the benefits of following a gluten-free diet would likely be derived through improvements to overall health, rather than athletic performance, per se. The costs of

difficult, it is certainly not impossible, but careful planning is necessary. For female vegan athletes, however, iron deficiency can be an issue: iron is better absorbed in the heme form from animals than the non-heme form from plants, and females of child-bearing age have particularly high iron needs. Since iron also plays a crucial role in endurance (it makes up part of the oxygen-transporting Georges Laraque hemoglobin molecule in the bloodstream), vegan athletes, and women in particular, should be mindful of their iron status (as well as their vitamin B12 status, which is also important for red blood cell formation), and supplementation may be necessary.

Myth-busting: Toning, spot reducing don’t exist Helen Vanderburg

Postmedia News

This one is for the ladies. One of the most common comments I get from women when it comes to changing their physique is “I don’t want to add bulk; I just want to ‘tone.’” What does that really mean? Most people think that toning means getting more definition and firmer muscles without adding any size. But this is simply not possible. If you look up toning in an exercise physiology textbook, tone simply describes the state of the muscle. When a muscle is at rest, for example, it is in a state of partial contraction to be ready for action. The “tone” of the muscle is involuntary, so you can’t change it by lifting weights in a particular way. Unfortunately, people have taken “tone” to mean how defined a muscle appears. Women go to the gym to “tone up,” often fearing the idea of bulking up, while men go to the gym to “build.” But muscles gain size and strength when they’re required to do more than what they are used to doing on a daily basis. (Similarly,

they’ll shrink and weaken if underused.) Muscle doesn’t turn to fat or vice versa. When you train a muscle, you can’t help but “build” it. The shape and appearance of your muscles are predetermined by genetics, along with factors such as gender, stature, body composition and fat storage, which give some individuals a more “defined” appearance. I was recently on an infomercial shoot where the most sought-after male fitness model was filming. When I asked what his training techniques were, he simply said “I was born this way.” That doesn’t mean we can’t change our body’s appearance — but the body doesn’t know how to “tone.” When a muscle is asked to work at a higher intensity, it will build. In essence, toning and building are the same thing. Becoming lean and building muscle requires making changes in our body composition through exercise (including lifting weights) and healthy eating, to see the muscle definition. So why be concerned about using the word “toning”? Because it leads to an underlying belief that we can “spot reduce.” When you say you want to “tone your triceps,” you’re really saying you’d like to

Ladies, don’t be afraid of heavy weights. They will increase your muscle mass and make you a better calorie burner. change the shape of that part of your body. And this is simply not possible. The only way to see muscle definition is to exercise, including resistance training to develop strong muscles, and to reduce body fat so that you can see the muscle. (This is why body builders go on extreme diets before a competition — so the muscle is more visible.) Here’s the tricky part of believing you can spot reduce. The body doesn’t discriminate between exercises for the arms or legs when

it comes to decreasing body fat. It simply knows you are exercising. If you are eating a healthy diet and you are burning more calories than you are taking in, your body will reduce its stored fat — from wherever the body decides to take it and not necessarily the area you are targeting. So, let go of the idea that women tone and men build. Instead, change your perspective to focus on the whole body and on gaining muscle strength through resistance training, cardiovascular activity and a healthy, balanced diet. Ladies, don’t be afraid of heavy weights. They will increase your muscle mass and make you a better calorie burner. Both of these benefits are important: experts estimate the average person loses five to seven pounds of muscle tissue each decade of our adult lives. In addition, we tend to gain fat as we grow older due to the slowing of our metabolisms and usual decline in activity, making for a double whammy.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: A month of far travel, higher learning, legal affairs, cultural involvements, of wide vision and the “big questions” begins Tuesday. (It starts in earnest, more deeply, Friday onward.) However, a general slow-down and “backtracking” influence begins now, so the travel should be to former places, the higher learning will succeed best if it is review or research, etc. Don’t be determined to break new ground; test the ground you’re on first. Lots of work confronts you now to next July. Until Dec. 13, limit these chores to routine or neglected ones. Start nothing new before then. Taurus April 20-May 20: Don’t start anything new before Dec. 13, especially in finances, investments, debt, lifestyle changes or intimate commitments. Don’t begin new funding partnerships. Instead, deal with past or ongoing projects – protect the latter from mistakes and unforeseen contingencies, supply shortages, etc. Have a “Plan B.” Your romantic nature heats up through next June. If you’re single, the three weeks ahead bring a sweet, gentle, inquisitive, supportive person. At the same time, now to late December, your sexual, intimate urge heightens. Result: quick closeness! Be honest, moral. Gemini May 21-June 20: Start nothing before Dec. 13 – instead, focus on past or ongoing ventures, particularly in relationships, relocation, litigation, agreements, negotiations, contracts and dealings with the public. Tuesday begins a month in which all these matters will be emphasized. Your thoughts/ desires might turn to an old flame or “ex.” But this link holds dangers: domestic friction, urges to end it, his/her “domination attitude,” etc. On the other hand, a great opportunity, perhaps to find a retreat, or land a government or institutional link/permission, could arise from a past contact.

NEWSPAPER.COM

Cancer June 21-July 22: A month of work and health concerns begins Tuesday. Stick to routine and ongoing chores. DON’T start a big new work, employment or machinery project – or anything important – before Dec. 13. Buy no machinery, TV or computers. You’re restless, but you’ll be fine, happy, if you channel this energy into work, errands and “phone lines.” You might revisit a former home, or reconnect with a family member. Your home needs care (electrical?) Sunday/Monday – kids too. Romance beguiles midweek. That month of work begins seriously Friday/Saturday. Bosses are tense, but you succeed! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: A month of romance, pleasure, adventure, creativity and speculation begins Tuesday – you’ll ride a winning streak! But stick to former or ongoing attractions – brand new loves, though they can flame and pulse hot, will – long-term – be busts. As if to nudge you the right way, an old flame will return, in actuality or in your thoughts. Start nothing new, in business or love, before Dec. 13. (And DO NOT start a new creative work – its ending would elude you.) Settle into home midweek: all’s fine, kids are sweet, friends happy, thoughts good. Romance grows Friday, teeters Saturday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Tuesday triggers a month of domestic, security, real estate, foundational, gardening, nature, nutrition, stomach and soul concerns. All these matters face delays, indecision and “backwardation” now to Dec. 13. During these few weeks “manna from the past” can occur. You might face a splendid opportunity to “redo” your home situation, to re-align children’s direction or education, or to purchase a residence (perhaps in a foreign country) that you have already seen/wanted. But DON’T begin brand new projects; don’t purchase a newly glimpsed home, start new renovations, etc.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: An active, busy, communicative, restless, travel-prone month begins Tuesday (and more solidly, earnestly Thursday night). Unfortunately, a period of delay, indecision and confusion also begins this week, lasting to Dec. 13. DON’T begin important projects before then, especially in travel and communications – e.g., avoid a new mail-order venture, installing new telephones or office equipment, etc. Travel only to revisit, not to new places (except for rest, e.g., a week on the Cuban beach). A former friend might return – it’s not a big thing. Chase money Wednesday/Thursday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The month ahead emphasizes money: earnings, buying/selling, possessions, and memorization or rote learning. Until Dec. 13, start nothing new in these (or any) areas. Guard against mistakes, slowdowns, supply shortages and missed meetings. Have a “Plan B” ready in money areas. Contact former clients. A sensual relationship might begin. While pleasant, even deeply gratifying, this bond is unlikely to last unless she/he reappears from your past (now to mid-December). Lie low, rest Sunday eve to Tuesday eve. Your charisma and energy surge midweek. Work safely Saturday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Sunday to Tuesday bring you optimism, hope – and for good reason. Tuesday begins a month of higher energy, charisma and popularity. This would usually be a great time to start important projects and make your mark on the world. But until Dec. 13 the only long-term success will involve projects or relationships resurrected from the past. Ongoing ventures are also fine, but be patient with them, and protect them from delays, supply shortages and “new ideas.” A former mate might appear soon. Rest, recuperate and contemplate midweek. Your energy surges Thursday night onward.

Nov. 20 - 26, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: A month of quietude, rest, contemplation, of sweet solitude, begins Tuesday. (Take hopeful, ambitious action Sunday night to Tuesday.) Your timing is great – just as you slow down, so too does the world – until Dec. 13. (In other words, you’re not missing anything important.) Before that time, start nothing major in any arena. This is a splendid time to get a physical, to revisit a hospital, institution, large corporation or government, to re-apply for aid or permission. Hopes and friendly meetings arise midweek. Retreat Friday/Saturday: your home (and heart?) need care. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The month ahead brings friends, parties, entertainment, happiness, optimism and wish fulfillment! However, until Dec. 13 only ongoing people, things and projects – or those reprised from the past – will succeed. Don’t start anything new before that date. A former lover, flirter or affectionate friend might return. You’re attracted to former groups – give them a call. You could start a short, hot fling with someone from your past. Is it fair to him/her? Monday/Tuesday are mellow, gently loving, wise. Be ambitious midweek – bosses like you! Happiness, friends, Friday/Saturday! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Tuesday starts a month of ambition, prestige and status concerns, and relations with VIPs, bosses and parents. Start nothing new, especially in these zones, before Dec. 13. Protect ongoing ventures and projects from delays, confusion, mistakes, indecision, supply shortages and missed appointments. Have a “Plan B” ready. Don’t believe promises, especially from Virgo or Gemini. A position, client, VIP or employer from the past could hold the ticket to success. Monday/Tuesday are mysterious, sexy: dig deep for answers. Wisdom, gentle love arise midweek. Be ambitious late week. timstephens@shaw.ca

Driving

Short days call for safety considerations ViewPoint Harvinder Sandhu

I

t’s autumn and with the season change comes a reminder to all of us. We just turned the clock back on Nov. 6 and immediately felt the impact of going back an hour. A day before it was still fairly light at five in the evening, on the sixth it was dark before 5 p.m.! The next day my colleagues and I commented on how much darker it was as we prepared to leave work. This brought to mind how rainy weather and shorter days can be hazardous to motorists and pedestrians, especially during rush hour. Even though cars have headlights on, that doesn’t mean everything on the roadside is illuminated. Add wet, slick roads to rush hour conditions and it’s surprising there are not more accidents. Pedestrians who wear dark clothing need to understand they blend into the darkness and are not visible to drivers until the vehicle is almost upon them. This limited visibility becomes worse if it’s raining. I’m not the only driver who has had to slam on the brakes when someone steps out of the shadows onto the road. Lucky for them I’m a defensive driver,

so I am on the lookout for just such a thing to happen. I’m not being gloomy, but only want to bring to attention that drivers and pedestrians equally share responsibility to keep themselves safe. Here is where some common sense can and should be practised by all on the road, especially pedestrians. Drivers are careful, but in the next few months of long, dark, rainy nights, pedestrians need to keep themselves safe by being proactive. This means wearing light, reflective or lightcoloured jackets, and only crossing at crosswalks when the signal says to cross. No more dashing across the street illegally because it is faster. It might be faster, but it’s also very dangerous. Drivers need to drive according to visibility, this means when it’s dark and rainy, slow down. Pay one hundred per cent of your attention to the road, don’t get distracted putting on something to listen to or anything else that takes your focus away. Go through a checklist before you start driving. Put on the music, make that phone call, check the rear view and side mirrors, do this all first. Then you will not be fiddling around distracted and be able to focus on your driving. Yeah, we’re all in a hurry to get to work, or home or wherever we need to get to – but just remember we want to arrive at our destination; we don’t want to be left permanently behind.

AUTOMOTIVE Emissions

Five lean, clean driving habits

11116216

TO YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD AUTO DEALER FOR

INCREDIBLE PRICES!

Put your vehicle into park for a second and listen up. The average car produces about three times its own weight in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions every year. Those emissions are increasing the greenhouse effect, which in turn, are contributing to climate change. You know, snow in July, rain in February? Here are five fuel-efficient driving habits from Natural Resources Canada to help you save up to 25 per cent and make a difference: 1. Be a gentle giant The harder you accelerate the more fuel you consume. In the city, where about half the fuel you consume is used to accelerate, you can save fuel by easing up on the pedal. Imagine an egg under your foot and an open cup of java on your dashboard. 2. Be steady Drive at a steady, consistent speed. You’ll use less fuel, keep traffic flowing smoothly, minimize exhaust emissions and enjoy safer driving. 3. Anticipate traffic Hard braking and rapid acceleration burns more fuel and is unsafe. Be defensive and watch for upcoming changes in traffic. Avoid coming to a complete stop unless you hit a stop sign or red light. Leave plenty of space between you and the vehicle in front of you. 4. Coast to decelerate Coasting to a stop with your foot off the gas pedal is like driving for free. By predicting slowdowns, you can decrease your speed, conserve fuel and save money. Most vehicles today have fuel-injection systems that automatically shut off the flow of fuel to your engine when the gas pedal is released, so take advantage. 5. Slow down The faster a vehicle travels above 80 km/h, the more fuel it consumes. For example, a vehicle needs 20 per cent more fuel to go 120 km/h than to go 100 km/h. NRCan has posted some other fuel-efficient tips and tricks at www.vehicles.nrcan.gc.ca.

AUTOMOTIVE Driving tips

Keep your road trip safe Winter in Canada is a beautiful time of year and a great opportunity to get outdoors. However, we all know winter weather can turn nasty with snowstorms or freezing rain. Days Inns - Canada offers helpful tips to be prepared for the unexpected this winter. Weather: Before departing, be sure to check the weather report for the entire length of your drive. If the weather looks like it might cause problems re-evaluate your travel plan. Keep it safe. Car: Inspect your car prior to departure to avoid unnecessary problems. For example, check the oil level, top up the anti-freeze, and examine the spare tire. Depending on the length of the journey it might also be advisable to have a winter safety kit. This can include a blanket, flashlight, cellphone charger, emergency candle, matches and a shovel. Route: Winter weather can be unpredictable, so it is important to know your travel route. It might be advisable to check for accommodation en route ahead of time. If you can’t book ahead, take some toll free numbers with you, such as 1800-DAYS-INN, which gives you access to more than 90 locations across the country. Time: Allow plenty of time when driving in winter weather as roads can be slower than usual. It is also recommended to drive only during daylight hours. If necessary, sleep overnight in a hotel. Safety comes first.

Winter weather

Local drivers advised to check tires: police With icy roads coming soon the RCMP have a two-fold message for drivers – use the right tires on your vehicle, and make sure you have enough tread on your tires to stay safe. In the Lower Mainland, the right tires will depend on where you’re driving and what your expectations are for your tires. “All season mud and snow tires, while currently legal, are not good winter tires,” advises Supt. Norm Gaumont, head of traffic services for the RCMP in the Lower Mainland. “Tires need to have the mountain snowflake emblem on them to be true winter tires. And either winter tires or chains are required by law, if you’re travelling in many areas in Whistler or in the Interior.” Once temperatures fall below seven degrees Celsius, winter tires will provide better traction than all-season tires, which translates to shorter stopping distances and better vehicle cornering and control.

Gaumont notes that there are all season tires with a snowflake emblem, but they’re not yet that common, and can cost more. Drivers should also use the penny test to determine if their tires have enough tread depth, generally at least 3.5 mm. Hold a penny upside down and insert it into the tread of front and rear tires. If the Queen’s head is fully visible, the tire doesn’t have enough tread. “Drivers shouldn’t rely solely on the advanced safety features of modern cars – such as ABS braking or airbags,” notes Gaumont. “It takes two minutes to check the tread on your tires, and that could make the difference for you and your family. Having good tire tread allows you to stop in time, prevents crashes and helps keep you from hydroplaning. If you constantly feel your ABS system activating, you are driving too fast for the conditions. In effect, you are removing the advantage that ABS provides.”

AUTOMOTIVE Maintenance

Vehicle safety can be compromised by corrosion Most of us believe our vehicles are safe. But have you taken a peek underneath your car lately? Chances are, if you

have kept your car for more than four years, the first signs of deterioration have already begun to appear in the form of

corrosion – unless of course you’ve taken preventive measures by rust protecting your car annually. Without proper

protection against rust, a vehicle’s metal body can begin to corrode after just a few years, making new cars susceptible as well.

After years of exposure to harsh weather conditions and road salt, rust usually starts to appear in weaker areas of our

cars such as spot welds, door dings, scratches and rock chips. If left unchecked, rust can spread and also harm the mechanical parts that are essential to the safe running of the vehicle, such as the gas tank, electrical connections and brake lines. “Corrosion should not be taken lightly as it directly affects the overall safety of your vehicle,” said Freeman Young, president of Krown Rust Control. “As soon as your car starts getting rusty, the overall integrity of the vehicle is compromised. Treating your vehicle with a rust control product every year actually helps your vehicle’s frame maintain its strength and protects the moving parts. The fact is rust protection equals safety.” The CAA agrees the best way to protect your vehicle is with yearly applications of an oilbased rust inhibitor. “We recommend that an application of an oil-based rust protector, such as Krown, should be applied every year for maximum protection,” said Paul Datzkiw of CAA. Rust inhibitors also act as lubricants and will protect the internal

parts of your car, such as wiring, which is often prone to oxidation and electric shorts. While protecting yourself and your loved ones should be your main concern, there are also products available that have a lower environmental impact. For example, Krown’s rust protection does not contain any solvents, VOCs or toxins. Another advantage of rust control, Young added, is that you’ll save money in the long run. You’ll have lower maintenance and repair costs because moving parts such as door locks and window winders, along with dozens of other components, will be protected and last longer. And a rust protected vehicle has a higher resale or trade-in value. “You wouldn’t think of not changing your vehicle’s oil to maintain the motor,” Young said, “and an annual rust control treatment protects a car’s body and moving parts in the same way. Think of it as preventive maintenance for your aging car.” More information on the benefits of rust control is available at www.krown.com.

AUTOMOTIVE Kicker

What type of winter driver are you?

Canada is the second largest country in the world, so it’s no surprise 86 per cent of Canadians aged 16 years or older have a driver’s licence. However, not all of us drive the same way. Some of us love to drive fast; others are nervous or cautious behind the wheel. Canadian winter brings particular challenges that often magnify these differences. On the ice and snow, cautious drivers can become almost paralyzed with indecision and confident drivers can become reckless. Michelin recently conducted a survey to find out more about the different drivers on Canadian roads. Canuck drivers can be broken down into five different types, each needing specific help when it comes to tackling winter roads. Here are some customized pointers for all types of drivers from the Michelin Winter Driving Academy (http://michelinman. ca/winter-tire). Worrywarts lack confidence at the wheel and worry they are surrounded by drivers who are less cautious than

they are. Worrywarts can sometimes get paralyzed and stop in the middle of an ice-covered hill or incline. Stopping in such a situation is never advisable as you may not have traction to begin moving again. Smooth, steady pressure on the gas to maintain forward motion is the key to conquering slippery inclines. Daredevils love a thrill, and they don’t believe speeding causes accidents. They love their cars and generally look after them with care. Similarly, the Fast and Confident aren’t afraid to drive fast, but they also like feeling in control when at the wheel. They are not intimidated by winter driving because they rarely get stressed. Both of these types of drivers should remember in the winter to significantly increase their following distance and anticipate longer distance for braking to avoid losing control and causing an accident. Cautious Pragmatists consider cars first and foremost as a method of transportation, a way to get from point A to point B. They are cautious at the wheel and follow the

recommendations of their car manufacturer or mechanic for maintenance. These drivers will always ensure they have a fully prepared car with

essential equipment for the winter: • four winter tires • a shovel • a tire gauge, jack and fully inflated spare • gravel, salt or a

NEWSPAPER.COM

The new MKZ Hybrid is not just the first hybrid produced by Lincoln, it’s the most fuel-efficient luxury sedan you can buy in Canada. The MKZ Hybrid advances technology to a higher level in many ways, but I still have some suggested improvements. My fuel economy calculations also didn’t quite match the official figures put out by Natural Resources Canada, yet overall the MKZ Hybrid turned out to be a very frugal fuel-user. Certainly not your old-fashioned big, heavy, chrome-decked Lincoln, the MKZ is a new and more dynamic direction for Lincoln, while still appealing to traditional buyers. The gas engine version of the Lincoln MKZ received a complete update last year, with the hybrid added this year. Based on the same platform as Ford’s mid-sided family sedan, the Fusion, the MKZ is available in both front-drive and all-wheel-drive gas versions, as well as the hybrid. In its pure electric mode, without the gas engine, the MKZ Hybrid can reach speeds of up to 75 km/h. Yet, it’s the fluid and flawless way that this hybrid system operates as it dances between power sources and power recovery that’s most impressive. The gasoline engine is an Atkinson cycle version of the 2.5-litre fourcylinder and it’s paired with a permanent-magnet AC electric motor and an electronicallycontrolled continuously variable transmission (e-CVT). While more fuel efficient than a conventional four-stroke engine, at low engine speeds an Atkinson cycle engine produces less torque. That, however, is not a problem in a hybrid system as the torque-rich electric motor fills in as a perfect power partner. Taking full advantage of the best qualities of each power source is key to optimal hybrid performance, as is the smooth transfer between them. Lincoln has done a masterful job in both areas in the MKZ Hybrid. The MKZ Hybrid recovers almost 94 per cent of energy when full regenerative braking is used. It’s actually a brake-by-wire system with simulated brake actuation at the brake pedal and the pedal feel is just like a conventional braking system. The hybrid is priced the same as the all-wheel-drive version of the MKZ at $42,200, and the front-drive version is $38,400. This also presents a very clear, and interesting, cash, green or performance choice for buyers.

The Looks Looking like a scaled-down version of Lincoln’s flagship full-sized luxury sedan, the MKS, the MKZ offers many of the features and capabilities of the top-line Lincoln sedan, albeit in a more compact, fuel-efficient and affordable package. As you’d expect, it has iconic Lincoln design cues, including the split-wing grill and the Lincoln star prominent front and back and on the front quarter panels. And yes, there’s chrome – on the door handles, fog lamp bezels, mouldings, mirrors and exhaust tips – but it’s certainly not garish. My test MKZ came with a 17-inch chrome wheel option package ($1,100) that looked very sharp, enhancing the overall appearance. The Inside The dark grey (Bridge of Weir) leather upholstery was trimmed with brown piping. A little different, but my wife (whom I rely on in such matters) thought it was both “bold and stylish.” The front seats also came with a built-in heating and cooling feature for both the seatback and cushion. And something I’ve absolutely no hesitation endorsing is the optional ($1,000) THX audio system, a 14-speaker surround sound system that was, in a word, awesome! On the other hand, the hybrid’s trunk is on the small side. The tilt/telescopic steering wheel’s manual adjustments also seemed out of place in a luxury class vehicle. Power adjustments would be more in line with buyer expectations. On a positive note, the 110-volt outlet in the rear of the centre console is a great feature and those wood trim pieces that decorate the cabin ... they are real wood. Safety In addition to the standard six airbags in the gas engine MKZ, the hybrid edition comes with an extra airbag for the driver’s knees. Another unique safety feature is a crash alert system that activates the hazard warning lights and sounds the horn if an airbag is deployed or a seatbelt pretensioner is activated. Split-view side mirrors that provide additional “blind spot” viewing coverage are a new standard feature. My test car came with the optional electronic blind spot warning system. The Score A state-of-the-art drive system gives the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid outstanding fuel economy, but it’s also fun to drive and an excellent touring sedan.
