Chaos erupts at Kwantlen Pepper spray and fire alarms fill halls during unanimous vote to impeach divisive KSA board

SURREY – A pepper spray bomb wasn’t enough to end a unanimous vote by students to oust the Kwantlen Student Association board of directors. At about 2:20 p.m. Wednesday, more than 200 students had already registered for the special meeting in the gymnasium at the Surrey campus. Nearly that many more were

still waiting in line for the meeting and vote when a pepper spray bomb was let off in the gym and the fire alarm was pulled. A student who identified herself only as Christine said she was enveloped in the cloud of pepper spray and was still having stomach spasms more than half an hour later. “My whole stomach is hurting,” she said. “I coughed for 20 minutes straight.” The scene immediately after the bomb

was let off was chaotic, with a lot of racist chants, swearing and yelling, according to witnesses. See PHOTOS › thenownewspaper.com

Police were searching for three students seen running away from the scene – all dressed in black and wearing hoodies. Adam Heffey, who was seated inside when the incident happened, said he first heard

the fire alarm and assumed it had been pulled to disrupt the meeting. But then the pepper spray forced everyone out into the parking lots and open spaces outside. Another student said dozens of people were coughing hard for about 20 minutes, and some tried to wash their eyes with water to reduce the burning.

Guildford

Burned baby returned to mom

Shots fired in North Delta

Elderly pedestrians hit by car

SURREY – A three-month-old Surrey girl who was scalded with hot water during her bath Monday afternoon has been returned to her mom. The infant was flown to B.C. Children’s Hospital by an air ambulance after she somehow turned on a hot water tap during her bath and burned herself. The incident happened in the 6100-block of 138th Street in Newton. “She’s fine,” Surrey RCMP Cpl. Drew Grainger said Wednesday, and “expected to make a full recovery. It was just a very unfortunate accident.” Tom Zytaruk

NORTH DELTA – Delta police are looking for a small red sports car with tinted windows and a rear spoiler after shots were fired at two young men in the 9200-block of 114th Avenue on Tuesday night. The intended 20-year-old victims – police say one of them has gang connections – were in a Mercedes Benz SUV at the time. The shooting happed at about 8 p.m. Neither of the men was hit. Delta police believe this was a targeted shooting.

SURREY – A car struck an elderly couple Tuesday night while they were crossing a street inside a crosswalk in Guildford. It’s the second time this week that pedestrians have been hit while crossing at a crosswalk in Guildford. On Saturday night an 82-year-old woman was killed during a hit-and-run in the 10500-block of 152nd Street. No charges had been laid by press time.

Chaos at Kwantlen

Students oust 13 KSA members

‹ from page 1

The battle consuming the student body has included lawsuits, allegations of corruption and conflict of interest that has its roots in a previous board from a few years back. The current board members had hired private security for its meetings, as well as the one set up for the impeachment vote, according to students waiting to be allowed back in for the meeting. And it was cited as yet another example of how badly disconnected the board was from its members. Many speculated the pepper spray bomb and fire alarm was tied to those about to be voted out. “I wouldn’t even say I’m surprised (by the antics),” said Leah Godin.

It was really overwhelming. It was amazing to see students get together and unanimously impeach those members that were elected. Tessa Wickel agreed. “This just further solidifies how I feel about the whole thing,” she said. “It made me proud to be Kwantlen today to see so many people stand up for what they believe in,” she added as she surveyed the hundreds of students patiently waiting for the firefighters to allow them back into the gym. Later, at 3:45 p.m., as the gym was refilling with students, the fire alarm was pulled again, setting off another round of pandemonium. Organizers then stationed a person at each fire alarm to ensure the meeting could go ahead. Arzo Ansary, a student organizer for the meeting, said there were three items on

Reena Bali, a Kwantlen student who helped organize a meeting hoping to impeach the Kwantlen Student Association board, waits the agenda. The meeting had three aims, she said: to remove the board of directors from their positions, along with other members (totalling 13 in all), to be put in bad standing so they couldn’t run in future elections, and to replace the current bylaws with revised ones supported by students. One of the meeting organizers and concerned student Reena Bali was in line when the pepper spray was released. “I got a whiff of it and covered my face,” she said. “It was a frenzy.” While Bali said she couldn’t comment on who was responsible for the pepper spray or pulling the fire alarms, she said when it happened, it looked like more than the

needed 250 students had come out to vote. “This is a symbol of hope,” Bali said, holding up her blue wristband, which students were given after registering for the meeting. “I have deadlines tomorrow and Friday, but I’ve given up my own time to be here. I want to mobilize students. We have to hold them accountable,” she said of the KSA. Every one of the 397 registered students at the meeting voted to get rid of the 13 singled out, although Karamveer Dhillon – the director and Surrey representative – resigned. A temporary board of directors was installed, with a vote set for the first week of

February to elect a whole new permanent executive. “It was really overwhelming. It was amazing to see students get together and unanimously impeach those members that were elected,” said Bali. Especially after all the drama that took place earlier that afternoon, she added. Ironically, Bali said she thinks the pranks gave students a stronger will to vote. “It was frustrating,” she said of the events, “but students figured it was to try to get them away, so most of them tried their best to stick around.” See thenownewspaper.com for the latest on this story.

‘Rewrite’ history using news headlines at Surrey Urban Screen Tom Zillich

Now staff twitter@tomzillich

SURREY – Headlines from the Now and other newspapers will be used in a new exhibit at Surrey Urban Screen, the digitalart wall at Chuck Bailey Recreation Centre in Whalley. Rewrite the Year will revisit 365 headlines of 2011 — protests, elections, conflicts, victories and other news.

From Friday until Jan. 15, the outdoor screen will serve as a forum for in person and online viewers to “rewrite” history. For Rewrite the Year, Montreal-based artists Melissa Mongiat and Mouna Andraos have designed a system that invites people to use text messaging to rework headlines one word at a time. People are invited to consider “what worked and what did not,” collectively rewriting history by creating different stories about the past year.

“We believe in participation — empowering people to have a place in the stories that are told around them,” the artists say in a statement announcing the launch of Rewrite the Year, part of the Electric Speed exhibit. Headlines used for the project are drawn from five sources, including the Now, Vancouver Sun, The Globe and Mail, New York Times and The Guardian newspapers. Transformed headlines will be collected and archived. “As the artwork moves

through the 2011 headlines and gets closer to the current date, yesterday’s news becomes today’s headlines,” exhibit curators say. “Citizens will have the opportunity to rewrite history, deciding how it should be told and how it can be transformed into a hopeful message for the future.” The artists are in Surrey for the opening reception of the exhibit, 6 p.m. Friday at Surrey Urban Screen, 13458 107A St. Details are online at surreyurbanscreen.ca.

City shares concerns over smart meters

SURREY – A handful of delegates spoke before Surrey city council Monday night expressing concerns regarding the BC Hydro Smart Meter Program. Liz Walker, director for Citizens for Safe Technology, was among the delegates. She said concerns included potential health effects and safety issues. Walker has asked Surrey council to write the Ministry of Health calling on it to direct B.C.’s energy minister to call a moratorium. Coun. Barinder Rasode said council shares residents’ concerns, adding that they

are waiting on a report from staff. “We will do whatever we can,” she said. At the Union of B.C. Municipalities’ annual meeting earlier this year, municipal politicians voted 55 per cent in favour of putting a halt to Hydro’s Smart Meter Program until major issues associated with the $930-billion project can be addressed. Surrey supported the moratorium. Hydro has said the devices – currently being installed in every B.C. home – are safe, accurate and will keep rates low.

Woman faces seven years for conspiring to kill boss Charge of trying to have mother-in-law killed will be stayed, Crown says Tom Zytaruk

Now staff twitter@tomzytaruk

SURREY – A Surrey woman who pleaded guilty to trying to have her former boss

killed is facing up to seven years in prison. Judge Reg Harris will sentence Amarjit Kaur Lally, 46, in January in Surrey provincial court. Lally has pleaded guilty to one count of counseling to commit an indictable offence for trying to take a contract out on Gurcharan Singh Brar’s life. The mother of two was also charged with trying to have her 70-year-old mother-inlaw killed, but has pleaded not guilty to that accusation. The court heard she had taken

out a $20,000 life insurance policy on the elderly woman. Crown prosecutor Satinder Sidhu said the charge involving the mother-in-law will be stayed but she’s seeking a prison term of five to seven years with respect to the Brar case. Lally appeared in Surrey provincial court on Tuesday and testified on her own behalf, but the hearing was adjourned after she appeared to become dizzy behind the witness stand.

The court heard she had met two men in the parking lot of the Great Canadian Superstore on Scott Road in the spring of 2010 and arranged to run drugs across the border for them if they killed Brar, not realizing that they were undercover cops. “Her actions were calculated and deliberated,” Sidhu said during her closing submissions. “The accused blames everyone else but herself for her predicaments.”

Municipal auditor huge waste of money, Jackson says

Delta mayor says spotlight should be on provincial and federal governments Sandor Gyarmati Delta Optimist

DELTA – Delta’s mayor says having a new auditor general for local government is a big waste of time and money.

The province tabled legislation last week to create an auditor position. Noting municipal governments are prohibited from running a deficit, Mayor Lois Jackson said local governments are the one level were taxpayers get the most “bang for their buck” when it comes to taxation. “If they’re looking at spending and deficits and debt, why don’t they have a little look at the province or the feds?

we cannot have a deficit budget, so we are totally regulated. We go to public meetings to talk to people about our budget and where it comes from,” Jackson said. “As far as I’m concerned, bring on the auditor general, it’s just going to cost us all money that should be paying the provincial deficit.” Delta wasn’t painted in a positive light recently in a report by the Canadian Federation of Independent Businesses,

which concluded B.C. municipal government spending has ballooned to nearly four times the combined rate of population growth and inflation over a 10year period. According to the report, Prince George and Delta were municipalities with wide spending-to-population-growth disparities, as both communities posted negative population growth rates.

for a cancer wig, like Surrey firefighter Tim Baillie does. I called Tim, and he turned me on to this outfit in Langley called The House of Miss Rose, where they harvest human hair to make wigs for people who have lost theirs on account of their cancer treatment, being burned, or losing it to a condition called alopecia, also known as spot baldness. I donated my hair this past Saturday, and it felt great. I’m already starting on the next crop – should be ready in a year or two. It takes 10 or 12 ponytails to make one wig so donations are always welcome. If you chose to donate your hair, you will be bringing some light into the life of someone who no doubt could use some cheer. I imagine there are probably other places that accept hair donations as well, but I went to The House of Miss Rose. They’ve been doing this for years and have a big heart for it. Check out their website, at thehouseofmissrose.com for info and guidelines. Your hair should be at least eight inches long. They also do Pony Drives. Call ’em at 604-533-8874.

Poverty

MLA’s stint as poor man won’t offer real insight ViewFrom TheCheap Seats Michael Booth

S

urrey-Fleetwood MLA Jagrup Brar is going to find out first-hand how hard it is to survive on welfare. Brar has accepted a challenge posed by Raise The Rates, an antipoverty group dedicated to increasing the monthly stipend given to welfare recipients. The group dared all members of the provincial legislature, but so far, only Brar has agreed to take part. For the month of January, Brar will attempt to get by on $610 – the current welfare rate. He says he won’t accept meals or handouts from friends and plans to live in flophouse hotels in Whalley and the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. Good for Brar for having the guts to take part in this odyssey. His experience has the potential to be enlightening. It’s too bad he is the only MLA with the

courage to give it a try. That said, Brar’s 31day vision quest will only provide a glimpse of the difficulties faced by those who occupy the lower rungs on our society’s ladder. Brar will discover how hard it is to stretch his resources by seeking out cut-rate food and accommodations. But as a successful 52-year-old man, he probably already knows a thing or two about budgeting and prioritizing personal spending. So what does he expect to discover that he doesn’t already know? Crappy hotels and lousy food are part of the deal so he can’t offer any insight there. Will he declare there is not enough money to get through the month? That’s the point of the exercise and, as a member of the opposition NDP, such a damning conclusion of the current Liberal government is expected. The rough draft of his findings has probably already been drawn up. Unfortunately, any real insight into the plight of this province’s welfare scene will remain out of Brar’s reach. Sure, he will live in that community and have

plenty of time on his hands to talk with people living in poverty. But the bottom line is he will emerge from his month of slumming without a clue about how difficult it really is. Brar heads into the experiment knowing exactly how long he will be subjected to living under the rigors of the welfare system. In 31 days, he knows it will be over and he can return to the comfortable life he has worked hard to build for himself. The people he leaves behind don’t have that luxury. All they know is that at the end of the month, they will receive another cheque for $610 and begin another four weeks of scrambling to survive with only the promise of more of the same in the future. Brar will learn about the

hardships of trying to get by without the comforts most of us take for granted, and I’m sure there will be difficult periods for him that month. But he will not experience the psychological toll that comes from a prolonged life of such conditions. Poverty is much more than just food and lodging. It’s something that wears away at a person’s selfesteem and mental well being to the point where many give up hope and seek relief at the bottom of a bottle or with dangerous drugs. One month on the skids is not going to push a person into such a desperate state. Brar knows from the start when his ordeal will end. The reality is, for many welfare recipients, the end may never come.

WHAT THE INTERNET TAUGHT ME THIS WEEK A gun club in Arizona is inviting people to get their photo taken with Santa Claus – while they are packing serious heat. The Scottsdale Gun Club is staging a “family event” that offers photos with Santa taken in front of a Garwood minigun, a high powered machine gun designed to be mounted on helicopters and armoured vehicles. Adding to the festive spirit will be an assortment

of weapons ranging from pistols to assault weapons for the festive family members to wield during their moment with good St. Nick. Wow. Nothing says Happy Birthday Jesus like fat guys in ill-fitting red suits and kids toddling around with AK 47s. Kind of makes the pet pics with Santa promotions seem like normal behaviour.

Positive home works wonders for children

Disgraceful parking fees don’t belong at hospitals

Harvinder Sandhu

aising children means more than just providing them with a loving home and basic needs of food, shelter and clothing. Parents are also responsible for providing a positive environment. I hope most parents realize a positive environment is paramount if we want our kids to grow up with confidence, which is much needed to go through the struggles life will throw at you. The past few decades have seen the appearance and the rise of self-help books – all extolling positive thinking. Reading these books made me realize positive thinking is synonymous to success. Positive thinking is easier to adopt when one has confidence in oneself. The books helped me become much more positive, to look at the glass half full instead of half empty. This was much harder than I thought it would be and I still have to constantly remind myself to think positive. This new thinking was implemented in our household, where we strive to give our boys a positive environment and accolades, no matter how small their achievements. We know the more positive reinforcement they get, the more they will strive to get that positive, winning feeling. I’m sure this is how many other parents also raise their children. We see this in teens and young adults out there who are articulate high achievers. We also see the other side, kids who are struggling in school who may have low

The Editor, I was very impressed with the views expressed in the Now by Jagpreet Lehal in his recent commentary on the all too common use of foul language by young people today. Not only did Jagpreet accurately describe this unfortunate “phenomena” that has enveloped our youth culture like a plague, his intelligent analysis of the issue and wise beyond his years reproach to his peers should be lauded. Unfortunately, my pessimistic belief is that most of his targeted audience won’t read his commentary, or wouldn’t get it if they did. Finally – and just as sad – I must add that there are far too many “adult” examples who could also benefit from his comments. Well done! Marvin Vath, White Rock

‘Radar ahead’ signs slow down speeders The Editor, Someone recently posted some “radar ahead” signs along Crescent Road. Was it done by someone who got caught speeding and wanted to warn other speeders, someone who lived nearby and wanted to slow down some of the speeders, or was it someone who was making a suggestion to the police? A week or so later, someone took down the signs. Whoever it was, and whatever their reasons, the signs worked. I noticed many cars slowing down when the driver saw the signs, and cars going by more slowly as I walk my dog along Crescent Road.

The Editor, As someone who has had to visit Vancouver General Hospital several times recently, I was appalled to discover their parking fees. It takes an editorial from the Canadian Medical Association Journal to bring this disgraceful situation to everyone’s attention. Now we see the B.C. Liberals trying to spin this story of one more tax on a section of the population. They claim these so-called fees are “needed to pay for capital equipment.” Nonsense. Revenues for medical care are aggregated together into one account and then allocated based on political thinking by the stooges appointed directly by the B.C. government. Reductions in both the number and massive salaries of health-care “administrators” would go a long way in making B.C. voters recognize that we have a fair and economic health system. Fees and surcharges have been some of the sneaky ways this government has used to take more cash out of B.C. taxpayers’ pockets without appearing to increase income taxes. The fact that a “lucky few” who have their taxes kept low so they can buy private rooms in our hospitals are getting free parking illustrates the two-tier society that our leaders wish to impose on B.C. It is also disgusting to see that health workers are also being gouged by this government as they often have to drive to the hospitals where they work. The pathetic excuses being used to avoid being swamped by free parkers was already addressed in the editorial – ticket validation has been used by merchants for years. When Delta municipality can ban these types of charges, it shows how truly political is this action. It is disappointing that the NDP have not already brought up this issue and promised to ban these charges by raising taxes on the top 10 per cent (not one per cent) to ensure that the other 90 per cent of the population get first-class medical service.

self-esteem. If we look far back into the lives of these kids, most often we will find the lack of a positive environment contributed negatively to their lives. It’s like trying to please a demanding parent and no matter how much one does it is never enough. That would be an extreme example. What’s more common is lack of acknowledgement for small achievements. In this country, the culture is to praise, even for small and somewhat minor achievements. I first learned about this when my older son attended his first school sports day. All the kids were given a ribbon – winning or losing was not emphasized. At first, this attitude didn’t sit well with me. Having grown up in an environment that was highly competitive, this attitude was not easy to understand. Slowly, I learned more about this philosophy of encouragement, of creating a positive environment to nurture a child’s self-image. Embracing it and trying to not fall back on past learned habits, I strive to create a positive environment at home so my kids will have a strong positive self-image. We, the parents, are the only ones really at the end of the day who are going to care the most about our children. Just providing kids with basic living needs is not enough; to really prepare them for a great life, we need to foster that positive feeling in them of themselves. This can – and does – make them understand that other people also would like the same for themselves.

WHITE ROCK – A radio station’s oneday fundraiser touched a nerve in many listeners, and the results will touch many lives in turn. RED 93.1 FM held a radiothon that raised more than $310,000 for Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation. Last’s year’s one-day radiothon raised $200,000. The event is held in honour of Guru Nanak Dev Ji (1469-1539), whose birthday is celebrated on the full moon in November. A spiritual leader in the Sikh community, the guru encouraged his followers to give selflessly for the common good. “It is very much a part of our culture to give back,” said station CEO Kulwinder Sanghera. “This is the time of year we give as a community. We chose to give to health care because that’s something everyone benefits from.” During the day, listeners heard from many special guests, including a call-in interview with Michael de Jong, B.C.’s health minister, who was in India at the time. “It was truly amazing to see the South Asian community pour out support like this on one special day,” said Jackie Smith, executive director of Peace Arch Hospital Foundation. “A steady stream of people arrived at the station with their gifts and many more phoned in. “To see all the helping hands was equally moving. Thank you to the station, the donors and the many volunteers who played a part in making this radiothon a success.”

Magical Mayan nights Last weekend’s Riviera Maya Jazz Festival was a highlight of trip to Corona-soaked beach in Mexico Tom Zillich

Now staff twitter@tomzillich

A

merican keyboardist Jeff Lorber laughed when someone at the morning press conference asked how he felt about performing beach-side in Playa del Carmen. “This is a place all musicians really want to go to, this festival,” he said, smiling.“Sometimes we have to play in the middle of cities that are rainy and dark, so this is just great.” We could all blame Lorber for introducing the world to sax-y Kenny G long ago, but instead, his current band’s concert at Riviera Maya Jazz Festival later that night was cause for celebration among the 10,000 attendees who could dig their toes in off-white Mexican sand for the occasion (for free, no less). It was first of the festival’s three evenings of three-band showcases on a big, well-lit stage positioned about 20 feet from the warm surf — nine bands booked, in all, for the festival’s ninth year. It all happened from Nov. 24-26, the American Thanksgiving weekend. I even gobbled up turkey dinner under palm trees, poolside. The local tourism office and Mexican government are financial backers of the festival (no corporate sponsors), and they were willing to fly in journalists from all corners of the world to let people know about all that jazz. I was among them, thank you very much. “Paradise is forever” is the tourism slogan employed in Riviera Maya, but my trip lasted just five days. That’s a bummer, really, because the place is beautiful, warm and incredibly welcoming. Just ask Mr. Lorber or any of the festival’s other keen musical guests, who this year included Yes man Jon Anderson (singing those high notes solo and acoustic), bass god Stanley Clarke (my new hero) and fusion-jazz buzz band The Yellowjackets (yawn). The hotel where our press group stayed was a five-minute walk along the amazing beach, north of the concert stage. It’s all a bit Gilligan’s Island at Mahékal — no phone, no TV, no internet connection in the hut-like rooms. My rustic second-floor unit had a thatched roof, which came to a domed point about 20 feet over my cozy queen-size bed, which made it easy to hear the breeze outside at night and birds chirp in the morning. The two-storey buildings scattered around the garden-like property are pastel-hued orange, green and, on the strangely dormant water-activities hut, a shade of cool baby blue. Mahékal (a Spanish riff on “magical”) is

Monster bass player Stanley Clarke thrilled several thousand people during this year’s version of Riviera Maya Jazz Festival, a freeadmission event staged in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, every November. (Photo: SUBMITTED) not the kind of place you’d want to book for a rowdy, tequila-soaked week away with your pals. A family vacation here is more likely, but the resort is so low-key and romantic, it’s best booked as a lovers’ retreat. No doubt, the place has helped make a lot of babies. It’d also be a fine place to get things started, wedding style.

COUPLES GALORE

I met and befriended many couples at Playa del Carmen. On the media end, fun-loving Turner PR man Ryan brought along his lovely wife, who could double for Jennifer Aniston. Donna and Sandy were together, too, and lived in beachy Monterey, California. Wiry and witty Claude from Montreal was there with his girlfriend, who shared a birthday with me — same day, same year, which is not that astonishing until it’s revealed that we’re born on Feb. 29, or Leap Year Day. “I have goose bumps on my arm,” she told me when we made the connection. The other crazy-trippy thing is that Jorge, the driver of the shuttle van in from the Cancun airport, also shared a birthday with us, although he is four years older.

Playa del Carmen is beautiful, warm and incredibly welcoming. Just ask Jeff Lorber or any of the Riviera Maya Jazz Festival’s other keen musical guests.

Non-media couples I met included Baltimoreans Frank and Kristin, a bubbly history buff thrilled to see Tulum and maybe score some weed for the trip. “Not a good idea, because this wouldn’t be a good place to get busted,” her more conservative boyfriend told her over a few Bohemia beers at the Casa Club, the bar that only got hopping during Happy Hour for daily drink specials such as the mysterious “Mahékal Explosion.” Alcoholic drinks aren’t part of the deal at Mahékal, but breakfast and dinner (or lunch, if you want) are included. The breakfast buffet is served at one of two pools, steps above the beach. I loved the

Toluqueño, a spicy plate of two eggs fried and topped with ham, chorizo, chipotle chili sauce, avocado and melted cheese. While sipping coffee and spying the juicy fruit on my side plate, I looked down the see Poncho, a friendly foot-long iguana that staff and guests have come to know for its foodhunting technique of “hiding” on the rocky edge of the retaining wall until just the right moment. Poncho looked pretty well fed.

‘RIO SECRETO’ TRIP

One day, we all piled into a van for the highway ride, followed by another for a pothole-filled 15 minutes, to Rio Secreto, a series of water-filled caves discovered only a few years ago by a Mayan hunter in the jungle south of Carmen. The place has been made a tourist attraction, of course, and with good reason: It’s pretty cool to put on a wet suit, life jacket and headlamp-equipped helmet and float through crystal-clear (but chilly) waters while marveling at stalactites, columns, “popcorn” and long-dead coral formed down there over millions of years. see › page 16

ATV-ing to Corona-ad beaches, other adventures ‹ from page 15

The best part of the experience at Rio Secreto was when Victor, our guide, turned out the lights for a couple minutes in one of the more remote caves, allowing us to float still and silent in extreme darkness. We were also welcomed to the jungle at Punta Venado, what looked to be a former ranch. We were a gang of 17 or 18 there, and we had the option of horseback riding or ATV-ing for a couple of hours. I chose the gas-guzzling machine, unlike the majority of horse-mounting adventure seekers, and we helmeted up. The first two-thirds of the ride was a pretty bumpy and slow one, although we did eventually get our thumbs pressed deep onto the accelerator. On this warm day, the cenote (spring well) was a welcoming sight, and a few of us plunged into one of the Yucatan’s natural wonders. Before I did, I dropped my ATVriding laundry right there on the jungle floor and slipped on my swim trunks, wary of any lurking scorpions. I dove into water again a few minutes later when we stopped at the beach, where a rainbow had formed because of what looked like a major rain storm over Cozumel.

The faint outline of buildings on that island, along with cruise ships, are visible from Carmen. Back on our sliver of beach, Henry told me that the rumour was true: This is where they filmed some of those Corona ads for TV — you know the ones, where lime-topped bottles of beer look so enticing. On the third day of the jazz festival, James, a videographer from New York, arrived at the press conference with someone new: Kia (“just like the car”), an Australian who did on-camera interviews with musicians and other artists. It’s little surprise she was a face on TV, because her looks and curves were as impressive as the number of places she’d visited in the world. James later told me that her “other” job was at the hugely popular Playboy Club in Cancun, where she lived. Speaking of hot items, the official festival T-shirts were blue and printed with the typical lineupof-artists concert info on the back. People couldn’t buy them anywhere; they were given out at random. At Mamitas Beach Club bar, with a view of the stage, I sat at the festival’s social-media table and talked with a staffer from Belgium. During my five minutes with her,

Liquid offerings at Mahékal hotel’s Casa Club. (Photo: TOM ZILLICH) nine people asked where they could get one of the T-shirts, to no avail. Once a sleepy fishing village, Carmen has become quite a vibrant place over the past 25 years. The street scene on Fifth Avenue was electric post-festival. Most bars, like the sports-minded Tequila Barrel, were filled with Cuervo-pounding patrons, though one place was strangely empty: Reina Roja (“Red Queen”). Red lights bathed the bar, and scantilyclad female mannequins were sprawled out on beds and in cages

(photo shoot, anyone?). A shallow pool in the middle of the bar was there for all to get wet (and people did). It was a similar scene an elevator ride up, on the rooftop bar. The rooms could be rented by the hour, for a maximum five guests at a time. Chains and whips are available for use. The pedestrian-only part of Fifth Avenue is where you’ll find shops selling crass T-shirts, Cohiba cigars, stacks of beach hats and those cool Nacho Libre-style wrestling masks (bought one for my son,

yo). The guys who sit outside these shops can be downright annoying, almost demanding that you enter their particular shop. “Amigo, come here and I show you the best jewelry,” said one. “What you want, cigars? Something nice for your wife?” asked another. “Meester, come in here and I’ll show you my seester,” insisted another — I’m not kidding, it was that cliché. Anyhow, after about three minutes of that, on the first day of my visit, I made the decision to avoid those stores and shop only at the ones where people didn’t beg me to buy something. I wasn’t alone. Back at the daily morning press conference, I cornered the jazz festival director and asked about next year’s event, a 10th-anniversary shindig. He mentioned Stevie Wonder as a potential headliner, and Chick Corea. As I shuttled 50 minutes back to the airport in Cancun, someone said they’re gunning to book Michael Bublé for 2012 (which wouldn’t be the end of the world, haters). Whatever the lineup, I’ll be bookmarking www. rivieramayajazzfestival.com and stocking up on sunscreen for a return trip next fall.

Semiahmoo Peninsula-based guitarist Doug Towle is getting into the Christmas spirit early with a weekend gig at Blue Frog studio in White Rock. The Christmas Guitar Concert on Sunday, Dec. 4 features Towle and fellow six-stringer Steve Laszcz doing “classic songs of Christmas for contemporary guitar.” Tickets are $20 for the 7 p.m. show; Visit Tapestry Music for info, or click on www.dougtowle.com. Towle recently emailed the Now from an airport in Chicago. “Just left L.A. this morning on my way to Ottawa for a Christmas show there,” he reported.“I released a new album a week ago of some re-workings of some older tunes of mine for just two guitars.” During his high school years in North Delta, Towle was a hard-rockin’ guitar nut who riffed on Rush and Iron Maiden tracks. Along the way, he grew to appreciate the Spanish-guitar stylings of Al Di Meola, Paco de Lucia and the like. Even then, he headed for Grunge-

Later in the week, the beautiful studio at Blue Frog is a stage for some more seasonal music. The Dec. 8-9 concert dates are with Juno winner Alfie Zappacosta, who is excited to have completed his recent CD/DVD Live From Blue Frog Studios. “Alfie will be performing all his hits, as well as a selection of his Christmas favourites,” said Kelly Breaks, the studio boss.“He will also preview the DVD that was produced earlier in the year.” To start the night off, Blue Frog’s own Juanita will be performing her Christmas set with some renditions of seasonal favourites. She will be backed by a group of local musicians, including Rob Gawthrop on piano, John Mcreath on drums, Bruce Webster on guitar and Breaks on bass. A portion of the evening’s proceeds will go to Surrey Christmas Bureau. Call 604-542-3055.

’m not sure ticket scalpers know it, but the hottest show in Surrey is performed by several dozen men in tuxedos. It’s the yearly “Sounds of Christmas” concert sung by Vancouver Welsh Men’s Choir, which suits up every December for the main stage of Surrey Arts Centre. This year’s gig is Tuesday, Dec. 6 at the Bear Creek Park venue, but don’t bother calling for tickets — it’s another sell-out. Those who operate the arts centre are intrigued and delighted by the choir’s appeal in Surrey. “There is just something about 100 gentlemen in tuxedos, singing beautiful songs, that grabs you,” Barb Wolfe, the performing arts programmer for Surrey Arts Centre, told me. “It’s very moving. And they do it for the love of singing and music, so you feel the joy in your heart when they perform.” The choir’s Christmas concert has been selling out in Surrey every year for close to two decades. Many of the ticket buyers return annually for the show. “They are the only presentation we have that we don’t have to advertise,” Wolfe added. “Although we have added them to our advertising plan, because we promote a selection of shows at once (we

And that means every seat, including our three wheelchair spots.” Staff at the arts centre have a special fondness for “The Welshies,” as Wolfe and the others affectionately call them. “We treat them very well when they are here,” Wolfe revealed. “Our front-of-house staff love to look after them, and they go through several hundred cookies backstage! While they could easily sell out bigger local venues, they choose to perform at the Surrey Arts Centre because of this wonderful relationship we have developed over time. We love our Welshies!”

Vancouver’s most notorious rock and roll bands (The Feltchers, Crystal Pistol, Black Halos) and I’m now very pleased to say the Bonitos are the biggest threat to the boredom of the endless mainstreams of crappy indy music.” He has more to say: “We don’t play shows, we hold parties, and we’re excited to be playing an all-ages show in Surrey at Olympia Pizza, as we love pizza and think kids need role models like us to stop them from wasting there time sitting around waiting for a beard to grow or knitting scarves and ironic sweaters.” The Bonitos have a debut four-song EP out on seven-inch vinyl, to be made available at the merch table at Olympia (10257 King George Blvd.). Doors open at 8 p.m. Bonito added: “My advice to the kids who are thinking about coming to the show: Don’t let yer parents know; tell ’em you’re off to go to a gangster-rap party at a crack house

and they’ll let you go, but if you tell ’em it’s Billy Hopeless’s new band, you’ll miss out.” A couple of years ago, Hopeless was given the job of narrating Bloodied But Unbowed, filmmaker Susanne Tabata’s unflinching and highly entertaining look at Vancouver’s first-wave punk scene (1977-82). Dec. 1 is the launch date of the DVD version of the movie, online at thepunkmovie.com and in select music stores. Tabata’s film is a 75-minute blast of three-chord rebellion told by those who found a second home at the Smilin’ Buddha Cabaret and other landmark gig venues. Some musicians who made the most noise during the era had hitched a ride to the Hastings Street precinct from turf south of the Fraser River. Tabata’s 40 interviewees for the movie included former White Rockers John Armstrong, known as Buck Cherry during his days with pop-punk band The Modernettes, and Art Bergmann.

Last year’s Parade of Lights drew thousands to Cloverdale. This year’s parade is set for Sunday, starting at 5 p.m. (Photos: NOW FILE) truckers to Whalley, along Highway 10 and north on King George Boulevard to Central City, for the Big Rigs for Kids event set to take place there. The parade in Cloverdale will continue with about 60 entries, including floats, marching bands, antique cars and horses.

Parade fans are urged to bring along nonperishable food items for the Surrey Food Bank and new toys for the Surrey Christmas Bureau. Volunteers will be gathering the donations along the route. The original Santa Parade of Lights was created in December 2001 as an evening

parade to support a Christmas lighting display that was held on the Cloverdale fairgrounds called the “Parade of Lights.” Later, the lighted trucks joined the festivities. The parade starts at 5 p.m.

SURREY – Huge trucks decorated with Christmas lights will lead the floats and marching bands at Surrey’s Santa Parade of Lights. The parade promises to dazzle those who line the parade route in Cloverdale on Sunday. “It’s the second biggest Santa Claus parade in British Columbia, next to the one from Rogers in downtown Vancouver,” said Bill Reid, executive director of the Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce. “We get probably in the neighbourhood of 18,000 to 20,000 people gathered to watch it. It’s pretty awesome.” After the parade sets off from the Cloverdale Fairgrounds parking lot, the parade starts down 176A Street and then makes its way to historic 176th Street in downtown Cloverdale, via 58A Avenue. Trucks from Vancouver Island will lead the parade to allow the truckers to make the last ferry back home. Another 50 local truckers will follow in their path. “They add so much colour,” Reid said of the spectacular display. An RCMP vehicle will then escort the

The Big Rigs Lighted Truck Parade is a sight to see and everyone is invited to check it out while supporting the Surrey Food Bank and Surrey Christmas Bureau. “It’s amazing,” said Bonnie Burnside, of the Downtown Surrey Business Improvement Association and a member of the organizing committee. “The truckers put hours and hours of effort into decorating their trucks and it definitely shows. Last year, hundreds of spectators were able to wander through the trucks once they parked and admire them up close.” That will be the case again this year. But first the big rigs – many of which are in the Victoria Parade the day before – lead the Santa Parade of Lights in Cloverdale. The festive convoy then travels along Highway 10 to King George Boulevard, where it turns north on its way to Holland Park, to the south of Central City Shopping Centre. There will be a viewing site at King George Boulevard and 73rd Avenue, where M&M Meats hosts a barbecue. At Holland Park, the parade’s final

destination, there will be two more barbecues – one at either end of the park. These are put on by the North Surrey Lions Club and the Kwantlen Park Leos. There will also be entertainment and face painting. At this point, people are welcome to enjoy music and a stroll among the intricately decorated trucks and chat with the drivers. People are encouraged to make donations of cash, food and/or new toys, which go to the food bank and Christmas bureau. Proceeds from the barbecues will also be split between the two charities. People from the food bank and Christmas bureau will be on hand at both viewing sites to accept donations. “The truckers are very supportive of these two charities,” said Burnside. “They are hoping that when people come out to view the trucks, they will make a donation to the support the good work that the food bank and the Christmas bureau do.” The parade begins in Cloverdale at 5 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 4, and the big rigs are expected to arrive at Holland Park between 6:45 to 7 p.m., after passing through Newton.

Sponsored By:

Needy families in the Cloverdale area will have a brighter Christmas, thanks to a caring community. Volunteers with the Cloverdale Christmas Hamper Program are mobilizing to provide hampers for struggling families and toys for their kids. Now in its 20th year, the program is a combined effort of local churches, schools, businesses and service groups and is made possible by generous donations from the public. “Last year, over $50,000 was raised in food donations and cash donations,” said program leader Kevin Lunder. The program provided upward of 225 hampers in 2010, a figure that represents more than 325 adults and 200 children. “This year we’re expecting 250 at least.” The program’s volunteers work out of a space at the Pacific Community Church, near Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary school.

Volunteers sort all the donations collected by businesses in town and then later “shop” for items to make the hampers among the neatly stacked supplies. Volunteers will start to assemble the hampers on the week of Dec. 12 and the program can always use more helpers. “If someone wants to donate an hour or two of their time, all they have to do is come to the back of the warehouse on the week of the 12th,” he said. Volunteers are invited to drop by and help from Monday to Friday from 2 to 8 p.m. Lunder said the program is slightly behind its fundraising target at this stage of the campaign, but he expects a surge in donations in the coming days as everybody gets into the Christmas spirit. Pacific Community Church is located at 5337 180th St. For more information about the Cloverdale Christmas Hamper Program, visit www.cloverdalechristmashampers. wordpress.com or call Kevin and Trish Lunder at 604-574-4001, ext.107.

Food bank fundraiser

Yuletide Blues aims for $4,000 and 1,000 lbs. food Get singing the blues – Christmas is just around the corner. And the fifth annual Yuletide Blues benefit concert is set for Sunday, Dec. 11. Yuletide Blues was created by the White Rock Blues Society because of the historic close connection between blues musicians and food banks. This event on the Semiahmoo Peninsula is modelled after other such benefits, including “Blues for Christmas,” which takes place every year in Vancouver. “Many of the great artists lead challenging lives and needed help every so often,” said Rod Dranfield, White Rock Blues Society president. “Blues music is all about those challenges as well as hope for the future.” Over the years, the event has brought in approximately $12,000 and 3,500 pounds of food. This year’s fifth anniversary event hopes to bring in an additional $4,000 and 1,000 pounds of non-perishable food. The line up of performers for the event, who all donate their time and talents, include White Rock Blues Society artistic

NATALIA JEWELLERS

Whether you’re looking for something romantic for the love of your life, or just a great piece of jewellery that might attract the love of your life, Natalia Jewellers is the place to go. This family-run shop has a commitment to quality and an ability to offer competitive prices few stores can match, but its secret weapon is having a master goldsmith working in the store. “It’s about bringing the goldsmith experience to the front lines, and passing the savings on to the pockets of the customers,” explained Corey Gulerian, master goldsmith who helps run the store with his father. Despite using cutting edge technology to design custom-made jewellery, the store is old-fashioned when it comes to customer service. “Everyone’s budget is different,” Gulerian explained. “But the relationship with the customer is more important than the business.”

RIP CURL

For the last 42 years, Rip Curl has been responsible for outfitting surfers, scuba divers, and anybody else brave enough to explore the icy ocean depths with top of the line wetsuits. “We’ve been making them since 1969,” said Brad Simon. “They’re basically how the store was founded.” Rip Curl is one-stop shopping for someone hoping to spend the morning swimming with dolphins and the evening scaling a peak in the store’s mountain wear. It also doesn’t hurt if those adventurers know the value of a deal. “Basically, storewide, we’re up to 70 per cent off,” Simon said. Whether your destination is Tofino, Oregon, or Nova Scotia, Rip Curl has you covered. “People heading on a trip are really stoked to see our suits and our prices,” Simon said.

ARTS UMBRELLA

For years, the unique artistic space has been exclusive to Vancouver, but now the Umbrella is preparing to open up at Morgan Crossing with three professional-grade studios, housing a diverse range of classes in painting, drawing, sculpture, theatre and media arts. “There are so many young families in the South Surrey community, and we are thrilled to now be able to offer inspiring arts programs closer to where they live,” says Colleen Maybin, manager for Arts Umbrella Surrey. “All our efforts right now are being put into getting ready to greet our first students.” Canvases are scheduled to turn into brightly-coloured masterpieces when the inspiring shop opens its door on January 11.

FASHION ADDITION 14+

For the past 25 years, Fashion Addition has been dedicated to helping plus-sized woman look great, and feel good. “My daughter always says, ‘We sell self-esteem first, and then we sell them the product,’” Marilyn Booth explained. The store is a mom and pop shop with a loyal clientele that appreciates its stylish outfits and Canadian brand as much as they appreciate the way they’re treated. “I have customers that have been with me since we first opened the doors,” Booth said. Part of the store’s magic comes from its knowledgeable staff, who seem to have a sixth sense when it comes to fashion. “Everybody knows the clothes don’t look as good on the hanger as they do on the person,” Booth explained. And as Christmas approaches, Booth promised the store would have something special happening every Saturday.

Firefly Hair Salon is great because of the experience of the hairdressers. “We don’t take anyone just out of hair school,” Brian Burke explained, discussing the thousands of hours of clipping, trimming, dyeing and setting that go into making a great hair stylist. The shop had been a popular salon in Vancouver, but when Burke noticed many of his customers making increasingly long commutes to get their hair cut by a master, he knew it was time to set up a salon in Surrey. “We wanted to bring a high-end, top quality salon to the area,” he said. Firefly’s staff, some of whom have as much as 25-years of experience will be cutting hair as late as 9 p.m. in December. The salon is also offering a 30 per cent discount after Christmas to help everyone look great for 2012.

Friends and Family Event

When customers walk into the custom furniture store, they get an idea of just what their home could feel like. With sofas, dining tables, side tables, coffee tables, and candle holders, the store offers everything you could imagine, whether you’re interesting in adding a small table to a snug condo, or you’re looking for a broad concept for decorating your new home. Part of what makes the store so special is its design consultants, who offer in-store advice on each piece of furniture. But for customers looking for a more in-depth discussion of décor, the store also offers the services of an interior decorator, who will survey your home before rendering his style verdict. And as Christmas approaches, the store is decorated with four distinct Christmas trees, and if customers see an ornament they’d like to purchase, they’re encouraged to pick it off the tree like fresh fruit.

LUCKY BRAND JEANS

Lucky Brand knows that jeans are much more than just denim and grommets; they’re a true blue American icon. Staying true to the rich heritage—and authentic, all-American spirit—of denim, Lucky Brand began crafting great-fitting, vintage-inspired jeans in Los Angeles in 1990, quickly earning the title of “America’s favorite.” Lucky jeans get their distinctive look by literally going through the wringer—ripping, fraying, sanding, patching and washing by hand—to give them true character and soul. While Lucky Brand is best known for denim, the company also creates and licenses unique apparel, shoes, bags, accessories and jewelry that are sold at retail stores within the U.S., high-end department and specialty stores, select stores in Canada, and online at luckybrand.com.

THE SHOPS AT MORGAN CROSSING

As the calendar turns to its final page, Morgan Crossing comes alive with the kind of holiday cheer most people have only ever seen in Norman Rockwell paintings. Starting on December 1, the season kicks off with an event at the clock tower. Featuring handmade Christmas crafts, carols performed by a choir and jazz band from Rockridge secondary and Elgin, as well as an appearance by Santa Claus himself, there will be something for everyone whose heart isn’t three sizes too small. Events continue throughout the month, with pictures with Santa, storytelling sponsored by the library, as well as host of interesting knick knacks and tasty treats. It’s all arranged to give the area a community warmth in the midst of what is usually a very cold month.

Annual SAGA sale good for my gift-hunting ways ArtsScene Melanie Minty Columnist

S

orry, sorry, sorry. I have been so busy these last few weeks, dividing my time between my day job and at Surrey Arts Centre mainstage (to perform, of course), that there is little time left to play on Facebook or even look at emails. How do you all do it? Even with a handy smart phone (my newest love), I can’t keep up. Well, next week will be more normal — except I need to finish my Christmas shopping and other little things like that. And just by a stroke of good fortune, SAGA (Surrey Art Gallery Association) is holding its annual gift shop sale on Dec. 3 and 4. Whoopee! I will be at the theatre on those dates for the last few performances of Beauty and the Beast, the latest panto from Fraser Valley Gilbert & Sullivan Society. And how convenient is it that the SAGA gift shop is also located in Surrey Arts Centre? I love the SAGA gift shop. It has not just paintings, but all sorts of original work by artists and artisans from around Metro Vancouver. There’s pottery, jewelry, hand-blown glass — and, well, just lots of artsy stuff that makes a fab gift. The gift shop’s annual Show & Sale takes place Dec. 3 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Dec. 4 from noon to 4 p.m., and all items are reduced by 10 per cent, plus no HST.

Jeffrey Victor and Todd Talbot in Irving Berlin’s White Christmas: The Musical, an Arts Club production. Bonus. The gift shop is located next to the entrance of the studio theatre — you’ll find it. SAGA, by the way is a non-profit society that offers its members the opportunity to participate in, and respond to, contemporary art, and be part of a community that actively supports Surrey Art Gallery. Maybe a SAGA membership might be a considered gift for someone on your list. Now that it is December, the big event of the month is Christmas. I know, we live in a multicultural society and not everyone celebrates this iconic winter tradition.

But ’tis the season anyway. Christmas is steeped in centuries of tradition, and it is just part of our existence, for now anyway. Symbols of the season assail us in every shopping venue, and along city streets. I like all the lights and decorations. It’s pretty. And traditional. Handel Society of Music traditionally presents an annual performance of Messiah by G. F. Handel. This year’s event features the society’s choir in collaboration with Chilliwack Youth Orchestra, conducted by Johan Louwersheimer. Soloists are Debra DaVaughn (soprano), Lauren Solomon (mezzosoprano), Christopher Simmons (tenor) and Joel Klein (bass). The performance is Saturday, Dec. 3 at 7:30 p.m. at Good Shepherd Church, 2250 150th St. in Surrey. Tickets are available at the door, or can be reserved by phoning 604-585-9102. ($20, or $15 for seniors and students). Refreshments will be served in the intermission. Just another almost-traditional part of our seasonal celebrations is White Christmas, the musical at Stanley Theatre in Vancouver. This is the third year Arts Club Theatre Company has brought to the stage this classic (officially known as Irving Berlin’s White Christmas: The Musical). Dec. 7 marks the 100th performance of this show — and I got invited! So what if I’ve seen it these past two years. It’s an almost tradition now. White Christmas runs until Dec. 31, so there are plenty of opportunities to see the show, although eight performances are already sold out. Go to www.artsclub.com for more information and ticket purchases. ’Tis the season.

ARTS & LIFE At the movies

‘Arthur Christmas’ tops this year’s seasonal list Julie Crawford Columnist

O

K, now that December is here it’s official: I can pull out all the holiday stuff with impunity, and without being branded a festive-sweater-wearing Christmas Crazy. Along with the garland, my kids’ lopsided crafts and that tacky Rockin’ Santa that refuses to die, will be the bin of Christmas movies we look forward to watching each year. What makes a Christmas classic? Start the conversation around the coffee machine and you’ll get highly personal and vehement opinions on the matter. In our house, we watch It’s A Wonderful Life (though some prefer Nic Cage in The Family Man), White Christmas (to see Crosby and Clooney crooning “Counting Your Blessings” as

AT

much as to hear them sing “White Christmas”), The Snowman (shortest, saddest movie ever) and A Charlie Brown Christmas, of course. We put on our 3D glasses for Santa Vs. The Snowman, make sure the kids see The Nativity Story to remind them how the whole thing started, and then watch Love, Actually (too many F-bombs) when they’re in bed. But all those come second to my true favourites. While trolling for Cyber Monday deals a Christmas miracle occurred: I found a Rankin-Bass movie that I never knew existed, and ordered two copies of A Miser Brothers’ Christmas. It can sit proudly beside Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Year Without A Santa Claus, Nestor the Long-Eared Donkey and all my other jerky, stop-motion faves. Remember when you were little and you only had one shot to see the Christmas specials on TV? If you missed it you were a whole year older before you could watch Frosty and Crystal

Bryony and Arthur in Arthur Christmas. get married again. There used to be a few good holiday movies from which to choose each season, starting in the 1930s, with perennial favourite A Christmas Carol. The 1940s gave us some great films, including Holiday Inn and Miracle of 34th Street. Santa Claus Conquers the Martians was a bit of weirdness in the 1960s. We won’t even discuss the 1970s and ’80s, when Santa got sinister in such films as Black Christmas, Christmas Evil and

ADESA Richmond

Silent Night, Deadly Night. Or 1989’s Elves, in which neo-Nazis plan to impregnate women with elves to create a super-race. Things improved greatly when Ralphie asked for a Red Ryder BB Gun in 1983’s A Christmas Story. Then came Home Alone, Prancer, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, The Preacher’s Wife, The Santa Clause, The Polar Express and Will Ferrell’s Elf. But there’s a paucity of holiday movies contending for top spot

this year: Arthur Christmas stands as the lone contender this season, unless you lined up to see the truly terrible A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas, or you count the endless Barbie and Santa Paws offerings that went straight to DVD. Don’t get me wrong: I enjoy those too, every holiday-party-cheeseball minute, but classics they ain’t. Arthur Christmas fits the bill. From Aardman Animation, the studio that brought you Wallace and Gromit and Flushed Away, the film follows the hectic path of Santa’s youngest son, Arthur, as he endeavours to deliver one forgotten gift to a child on Christmas Eve. It’s funny, with a straight-line, kid-friendly plot and vivid (not manic) animation. And nary a Nazi-elf-impregnator in sight. After all, it’s cheer (not fear) we need this season.

ARTS & LIFE Human Library

These books were made for talking Library program ‘lends’ variety of experts to patrons this Saturday in Surrey’s city centre Amy Reid

Now staff twitter@amyreid87

SURREY – The City Centre Library will be offering up a unique learning tool this Saturday – human books. The Human Library program will offer “human books” for free 20 to 30 minute one-on-one conversations. “The beautiful thing is they are ordinary people that we can relate to. They’re not famous superstars but they’re noble and heroic, nevertheless. They’re ordinary but also extraordinary,” said Ravi Basi, a Surrey librarian who is co-ordinating the event.

The goal of the program is to promote respect for diversity, to highlight some of the vibrant, interesting and proactive people in the community, and to connect with others. The concept of “human books” began about a decade ago in Denmark in response to an act of violence. A young group of social activists used this idea to raise awareness. It evolved from there, and the concept has caught on around the world, in countries such as Australia, Germany, Spain and Canada. At City Centre Library this Saturday, there will be 19 “books” available, who are experts on a wide array of topics, such as laughter yoga, living with a disability, lesbian parenting, glassblowing, tarantulas and scorpions and choosing a child-free life. “A library’s job is to be creative and innovative and provide the public with new ideas and new ways of learning,” Basi said. “In the past, when we talk about libraries, we talk about books in print,

and computers and the internet, digital formats, and now, we have human resources as well. This is a format that has always been there. It’s a new way of learning and sharing information.” The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a break from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. at the City Centre Library, located at 10350 University Dr. No registration required.

Local Roadshow Expert Examines Some Gold Jewellery

After many very successful shows around the Lower Mainland, The Roadshow is is now herehere in White Rock, Roadshow now in Langley, BC. So you had better search through your attics and garages, go through your lock boxes and jewellery, because you may be sitting on a small fortune and not even know it! Roadshow experts are here to examine all your antiques, collectibles, gold and silver.

jewellery she was never going to wear anyways. Expert Elijah Gold explains, “We have noticed a substantial increase in the amount of precious metals such as gold and silver coming to the Roadshow, which makes sense considering how high it’s currently trading at. He added, “The Roadshow is great because it puts money in people’s pockets, especially during such hard times. Lots of items that are just sitting around collecting dust in basements and jewellery boxes can be exchanged for money, on the spot!”

During a show near Toronto, a woman came in with a jewellery box that she had just inherited from her late aunt. “I don’t wear jewellery,” explained Barbara Engles, “so it was an easy decision to come down to the Roadshow to sell it”. She was very excited when she was able to walk away with a cheque for over $2,100 for

At another Roadshow event, a woman, named Mira Kovalchek, walked in with a tin full of hundreds of old coins that were given to her as a young child by her grandfather. She finally decided to come in to the Roadshow and see what he had given her. She was ecstatic to learn she had coins dating back to the late 1800’s, some of which were extremely rare.

Roadshow consultant Perry Bruce explains “We had uncovered an 1871 Queen Victoria 50 Cent piece, valued at over $2,000!! She had a nice assortment of coins that were not rare dates, but she was able to sell them for their silver content”. She explains, “I never would have thought that my old tin of coins was worth so much! I can finally afford

to renovate my kitchen”. Perry Bruce continued, “Canadian coins prior to 1967, and American coins prior to 1964 are all made with silver, and we have noticed a large increase of customers coming to the Roadshow with coins and cashing them in for their silver value”.

Experts at the Roadshow will evaluate and examine your items, FREE OF CHARGE, as well as educate you on them. The Roadshow sees hundreds of people during a one week event, and they have been travelling across Canada to different cities and towns, searching for your forgotten treasures. Trains, dolls, toys, old advertising signs, pocket watches, porcelain and bisque dolls, pretty much everything can be sold at the Roadshow. Any early edition Barbie’s are sought after by the Roadshow collectors, as well as a variety of Dinky Toys and Matchbox cars. Lionel Trains and a

variety of tin toys can also fetch a price, especially if they are in their original box or in mint condition. If a collector is looking for one of your collectibles, they often make offers to buy them.

A man brought in a 1950’s Marx Tin Toy Robot, in fairly good condition, still in its original box. We were able to locate a collector for that specific toy within minutes, and that gentleman went home with over $700 for his Toy Robot and a few other small toys. So whether you have an old toy car, a broken gold chain, or a Barbie sitting in the closet, bring it down to the Roadshow, we will take a look at it for FREE and it could put money in your pocket!

See you at the Roadshow!

High flying Falcons eye second B.C. title Michael Booth

Now staff twitter@surreynowsports

The Surrey Christian Falcons got a taste of what it’s like to win a provincial championship last year and they liked it so much, they’re coming back for more. The Falcons are soaring once again as they head into this week’s B.C. Senior Girls AA Volleyball Championships in Vancouver. Surrey Christian knocked off archrival Pacific Academy in five sets to win the Fraser Valley championship last month and the Falcons will arrive at the provincials as the top ranked team in B.C. “Winning the Valley was a big thing because Pacific Academy is a really strong team and we always have tight competition with them every year,” said Falcons assistant coach Lisa Verveda. “They are our cross-town rivals and that’s a huge factor any time we play them. Any time we can get a win over them, whether it’s an exhibition game, a league game or the Fraser Valley finals, it’s always a big thing for us.” As the defending champions, the Falcons were labeled as the team to beat right from the start of the season. The ranking, coupled with the team’s history of success, ensures that every team the Falcons face sees the match-up as a chance to pull off an upset. Such circumstances create pressure on top-level teams like the Falcons, but Verveda insists Surrey Christian hasn’t let enlarged expectations distract them. “Yeah, there’s pressure but for us, it may almost be less pressure than last year because we hadn’t won it before,” she said. “This time the pressure comes in the form of what we know is possible for us to accomplish. Yes, we won last year and we are the defending champions, but that was a different team with a different set of people. This group has their own goals and wants to do just as well. “We don’t let pressure bother us because it’s not something to back away from; it’s something to be excited about. We put pressure on ourselves to keep getting better and to play our best so if there is pressure, it’s

Led by (from left) Rachel Windhorst, Kim De Jager and Maria Cupido, the top-ranked Surrey Christian Falcons are chasing their second consecutive provincial senior girls’ AA volleyball title this week in Vancouver. (Photo: KEVIN HILL) a good kind of pressure.” The Falcons roster is a nice blend of experience and youth with five Grade 12 players and five more in Grade 11. The veteran contingent is led by setter Kim De Jager and left side hitter Maria Cupido while another leftie, Rachel Windhorst has taken on a prominent role despite still being in Grade 11. At the Fraser Valley championship, Windhorst was honoured as the event’s MVP. “We have an even mix of Grade 11s and 12s, so while our team is strong this year, the future looks good as well,” Verveda said. “It’s super exciting to see the younger players

develop as the year goes on because the jump from junior to senior is always a big one. It’s a big learning curve but it’s great to see the girls improve.” The Falcons have been able to develop their young players thanks to a tough slate of tournaments plus regular clashes with rival Pacific Academy, who enters the provincials ranked second. The two teams have met four times already with the Falcons winning the last three matches. All of those results go out the window at the B.C.s where consistently strong play is essential for either team if they want to set up

a winner-take-all fifth meeting. “We go to big tournaments to play other teams from other leagues,” Verveda said. “Playing top caliber teams is a good way to stay fresh and there are a lot of good teams out there to push you. We’re also lucky to have Pacific Academy so close to us because every time we play them, it’s a very competitive game. We know the games against them are going to be tough and if we’re not ready to play at our best, we’re going to lose. I’m sure it’s frustrating for them to lose in the Fraser Valley final but the big prize is still coming and I know they have

SPORTS High school football

Three-peat within the grasp of baby Panthers semifinal round. One of those regular season wins came at the expense of the STM Knights, a 21-6 decision in the third week of the season. Gemmell said playing the Knights once before helps the Panthers prepare for the final although he admits much has changed since the two teams last met. “That game was almost two months ago.” he said. “If anything, it might not be good playing them again in the championship game after they lost to us the first time because they now have more motivation to beat us.” ❚ While the Grade 8s gear up for their biggest game of the season, the senior varsity Panthers are celebrating some success of their own. Lord Tweedsmuir just concluded the school’s most successful campaign since joining the ranks of class AAA teams three years ago and last week the team learned quarterback Michael Messenger has been named the province’s most outstanding offensive player. “It’s an award that he really deserves,” said head coach Kurt Thornton. “He was responsible for 31 touchdowns for us and previously, the most we had was 30 in AA in 2007 by Andrew Berger. We thought that those numbers would never be passed but Michael came up with 31 this year playing at the AAA level in the Eastern Conference.” Messenger passed for 1,204 yards and 13 touchdowns as well as running for 1,202 yards and 17 more majors. He also returned one kick for a touchdown. Thornton added that while Messenger was the Panthers’ best player, he couldn’t have done it without outstanding work by the team’s offensive line and receivers.

Thirty is not enough for the Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers Grade 8 boys’ football team. Unbeaten in league or playoff action in almost three years, the baby Panthers will be gunning for their 31st consecutive win — and third provincial championship banner — when they take on the St. Thomas More Knights in the B.C. title game Saturday morning (8:30 a.m. kickoff) at B.C. Place Stadium. “People say it’s amazing that we haven’t lost in three years and have won two B.C. titles in a row,” said Panthers coach Brien Gemmell. “For a public school, that is a pretty good accomplishment but it’s not amazing. St. Thomas More won 12 provincial titles in a row and that is amazing. We really haven’t done anything yet. “Our guys understand the tradition we’re building here and what is at stake. They’re working very hard in practise because they see the success we’ve had here and they want to maintain that tradition.” The Panthers are led on offence by quarterback Ben Colwell handing off to twin terror running backs Demarcus Singleton and Terrell Jana. Defensively, Lord Tweedsmuir’s stop squad is sparked by big plays from defensive lineman Colton Zayshley and linebacker Jonny Chwaklinski. The Panthers outscored their opponents 211-40 in winning all seven regular season games. In the playoffs, the Panthers rocked Earl Marriott 42-12 in the quarter-finals before dispatching Notre Dame 40-0 in the

Sharks fall short of premier goal Michael Booth

Now staff twitter@surreynowsports

The Bayside Sharks’ dream of securing a berth in the Canadian Direct Insurance premier rugby league was dealt a crushing blow in the form of a 20-11 loss in a showdown with Burnaby Lake in elite division rugby action at South Surrey Athletic Park Saturday. The result means Burnaby Lake will claim the last spot in the CDI premier loop when it begins play in January. Bayside is left evaluating its options from the first division. “We really had a hard time getting our flow together,” said Sharks coach Pat Kearney. “It was a close game against a very good team and it seemed just when he started to get something going, we would make a mistake that would kill our momentum. They played really well and definitely outplayed us.” Bayside led 8-6 at the break but the two teams exchanged a flurry

of penalties early in the second half that put Burnaby ahead 12-11. The score stayed that way until the 72nd minute when the visitors hit another penalty before closing the scoring with a try at the whistle. “They scored a late try at the end but the score was 12-11 for almost the entire second half,” Kearney said. “We got close but unfortunately we weren’t able to finish very well at the end. Things kind of fell apart in the final eight to 10 minutes and that’s the way it goes sometimes.” Centre Chris Pack scored lone Bayside try in the first half Peter Clifford added a pair of penalty kicks to round out the Sharks’ scoring. Kearney said the loss was an understandably discouraging result for the Sharks. He added the team will definitely field a team in the first division in the new year but could not predict the direction the club would take with the members of its elite team. “That loss really stung,” he said.

“We really wanted to qualify for the premier division and play at the highest level and I think we have the players in place to do that. But it was one of those games where one team was going through and the other wasn’t and unfortunately we were unsuccessful. It wasn’t the result we were looking for, but by no means is it a death penalty for us. “We’re going to examine where we are at in the coming weeks and come up with a plan for January. We don’t know what we are going to do yet; there’s a first division independent league that we will be placed into so we’ll definitely have a squad there. Whether our premier level players play there or if we’ll play a series of exhibition games or go on tour still hasn’t been determined.” On a brighter note, the Bayside first division squad downed Capilano 21-14 in fall season semifinal action Saturday. The baby Sharks will now look to earn a measure of revenge when they take on Burnaby Lake in Saturday’s final in North Vancouver.

Other games that day include the North Delta Longhorns taking on Abbotsford in the peewee final and the North Surrey Tigers playing Victoria in the bantam finale. (Photo: GORD GOBLE)

Cancer June 21-July 22: The accent lies on work, health, duties, a bit of boredom. Start nothing major before Dec.13. A former duty, chore or employment position might return – do it, grab it if unemployed. VIPs, parents and bosses are watching Sunday/ Monday – do your best, avoid temperamental words Sunday. Your hopes and happiness rise nicely Tuesday to Thursday – life’s worth living! The Sunday to Wednesday period opens doors to friendship, travel, even the kind of romance which, though light, could lead to partnership. Retreat to contemplate, rest and heal Thursday night through Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Start nothing major, relationship nor venture nor project, before Dec.13. Your creative and romantic juices stir this month, you ride a winning streak (yes, you’ll tend to win at cards, etc.) and pleasures abound. An old flame is near or “present.” You might feel you have been tricked and betrayed or mistreated by others, especially the opposite sex, this last decade or two. But turn around: how have you treated those you suspected? When angered or ignored, you can be cruel. “Admitting” this can clear you for future love – which is going to be stronger, longer than past love. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Start nothing, buy nothing, before Dec.13. You might meet former neighbours, or visit family members you haven’t seen in awhile. “Home,” whatever it means to you, is a powerful draw – especially Sunday/Monday. Though you shouldn’t buy or rent a new place (or furniture) a former abode or prospect might be a good thing. But don’t act before 3:30 p.m. Sunday. A gentle, mellow mood arrives Tuesday to Thursday. Despite your lower energy, Sunday to Wednesday offer meaningful romance, or a potent creative urge, especially if you’re in nature. Be ambitious, not forceful, late week.

For Sale Miscellaneous

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Start nothing before Dec. 13. New (not old) money matters are stalled; the logjam will break Christmas Day onward. If purchasing holiday presents, keep it simple and refundable, as lemons abound. VIPs, bosses and parents look on you kindly to Dec. 20 – take advantage, approach, visit, do them favours, etc. (But DON’T launch new projects for them. If the boss wants you to begin a new project, diplomatically suggest a mid-December or January launch.) You impress everyone Sunday/Monday, but barriers to action remain: act Sunday eve/night. Chase money Tuesday/Wednesday. Taurus April 20-May 20: The general accent lies on mysteries, sex, subconscious urges, finances, investments and debt, and potential lifestyle changes. You’re lucky in these, though forward motion has been lacking since August. By late December delays will end – a legal, travel, educational, intellectual or international “element” will be the go-forward key. You might soon agree to wed a sexual partner. Think deeply before plunging. Make NO commitments, nor any new starts, before Dec.13. Lie low, rest Sunday/ Monday. Your energy rises Tuesday through Thursday. Romance lies below, wants to emerge! Gemini May 21-June 20: Relationships are foremost. Your popularity and joie de vivre rise Sunday/Monday. But avoid arguments or hasty driving to mid-afternoon Sunday. Turn from a hardto-convince person Monday. Retreat, rest Tuesday to Thursday. Sunday to Wednesday give a lucky boost to governmental, administrative and charity projects, and might also attract you to someone because he/ she represents a rest, comfort, safety. But at what cost (to him/her!)? Your energy soars Thursday night to Saturday: contain temper. Until mid-2012, you’re quick to laugh, rage. Start nothing important before Dec.13.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Start nothing new before Dec.13, especially in communications, travel and record-keeping. A former friend appears, or you travel to revisit a familiar place. Your home life is blessed; you could, if seeking, find a domicile where affection and beauty will prevail, especially Sunday to Wednesday. Let this be a place connected to the past. (These days also bring tantalizing, but secret or private, attractions. Be honest, moral.) Relationships irk you to mid-afternoon Sunday, then they turn successful. But if you offer little (Monday) you get little. Wisdom, Friday/Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Remember, start nothing big and new before Dec.13. In particular, buy nothing – you are drawn straight to lemons now. Tackle chores and health concerns Sunday (much better after 3:30 p.m. PST) and Monday. Relationships offer both opposition and concord Tuesday to Thursday. Concord is more likely – and far more beneficial – as this entire week offers friendship and good conversation – with a romantic tinge. A big, lucky “concord” looms on the horizon, late month into next June. Finances, sexual urges and deep health matters arise Friday (some difficulties) and Saturday (climaxes?). Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Though your energy, charisma and clout are high, use them to tackle ongoing projects or to revive past ones – start nothing new before Dec.13. You easily impress others, gain their favour and get your way. If you’re single and have been hankering for some special company, contact that ex or old flame – AFTER 3:30 p.m. PST Sunday (or, less successfully, Monday, or, for more “grown up” results, after 9 p.m. Friday, into Saturday). Higher-ups are temperamental and impatient all week (until next July!) but you win them over, might even land a raise Sunday to Wednesday.

STAIN/PET URINE Specialst. Restore. 778-822-0346 www.fintastic.ca

Dec. 4 - 10, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Avoid new starts before Dec.13. Get plenty of rest, eat and drink sensibly. Retreat from the hustle-bustle, avoid competition. Tackle past-due obligations, especially those involving charity, institutions, the government, or head office(s). This is an excellent “clean-up and clear-out” phase to prepare you for powerful action later this month. Pay attention to home-related concerns Sunday/ Monday. (Careful with tools, confrontations Sunday.) Romance, notional or real, visits Tuesday to Thursday – in fact the thrill of attraction fills the entire Sunday to Thursday period. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Start no new projects nor relationships before Dec.13. This is a happy, optimistic and forward-looking month, but you’d do better to look to the past this week. A former flirtatious friend might arrive, or the door could fling open to a goal that was once just “wishful thinking.” Dreams do come true! Careful with speech, driving Sunday – after 3:30 p.m. PST, all’s well. Tuesday to Thursday accents your home, security, family and real estate. A verboten romance could attract you. Actually, romance simmers all week, then emerges Friday (careful!) and Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Be ambitious, show your skills to higher-ups, study business and career topics, but don’t start new projects or relationships before Dec.13. Money hits an irksome snag Sunday, but smoothes out late afternoon into Monday. Talk, travel, and casual meetings fill Tuesday to Thursday – and could turn enmity into an amorous bond. You have a choice now to next July – you can love, or hate. The former is more likely this week, from Sunday to Thursday. Collapse into the comforts of home or still beauties of nature Friday/Saturday. Don’t let stress cause a fight Friday. timstephens@shaw.ca
