Decision to sell land in Surrey astounds MLAs Gentner, Ralston say move is short sighted but Falcon calls their criticisms ‘ridiculous’ Tom Zytaruk

SURREY – The provincial Liberal government’s plan to sell off 15 acres of prime land in Sullivan that could have been home to a new hospital is like selling the family’s gold jewelry to buy groceries, NDP Finance Critic Bruce Ralston charged. The land, at the corner of Highway 10 and 152nd Street, had been earmarked for health care development under the Surrey Official Community Plan’s South Newton Neighbourhood Concept Plan.

the taxpayer? I guess all the forestry on Crown land is costing the taxpayer and will be sold next.” Falcon said the land is costing taxpayers in the form of property tax and other “liabilities.” “It doesn’t generate any revenue,” he said. Ralston, NDP MLA for SurreyWhalley, noted that the Sullivan land sits at the geographic heart of Surrey. “Surely having valuable land centrally located would be good to have for public purposes in the future. This is just for their own short-term purposes. It’s a bit like selling the family gold jewelry to buy groceries.” Falcon disagrees. “That’s a ridiculous analogy,” he said. Falcon noted that since the Sullivan land was earmarked for health care purposes Surrey Memorial Hospital has undergone expansion; with an improved emergency ward to open next year, as well as an eight-storey critical care tower in 2014 – not to mention the hospital’s satellite Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre on 140th Street in Whalley. That, Falcon said, represents the “best value.” “It made more sense to keep all of it in one location,” said Falcon, Liberal MLA for Surrey-Cloverdale. tzytaruk@thenownewspaper.com

It was a project dear to Delta North NDP MLA Guy Gentner, who served as director of the North Delta Public Hospital Society before being elected. In 1990 the society had collected 4,000 signatures from people who wanted a new hospital built in North Delta. The Newton property was later recognized as an ideal site. Gentner, now serving as the public health critic for the NDP, laments the Liberal’s decision to sell off the land. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon says it’s surplus land that is costing taxpayers money. Gentner is aghast at Falcon’s reasoning. “How does an asset, already paid for, owned by government, cost

SFU crime forum

Crime Act ‘pure theatre’ Head of criminology school says Tories used Act to ‘herd electorate’ in last election Tom Zytaruk

Now staff twitter@tomzytaruk

SURREY – The director of Simon Fraser University’s School of Criminology says the Harper government’s Safe Streets and Communities Act is “pure political theatre.” “It has nothing to do with sound social policy,” Dr. Robert Gordon proclaimed at a public forum on crime, held Tuesday night at the Surrey campus. “Sorry if I’ve offended anybody here. Too bad. Because that’s what it is – it’s pure political theatre. It’s costing us a fortune and we haven’t seen the bill yet.” “Let me just say I’m neither NDP nor federal Liberal,” Gordon added. “Don’t start attaching political labels to me; I try to speak with a clear voice.” The Tories introduced the Act last September, heralding it as comprehensive legislation that targets crime and terrorism while providing “support and protection” to crime victims. It re-introduced nine other Tory crime bills that died in previous parliamentary sessions. “First of all, it’s a statute that contains nothing that’s new,” Gordon said. “It’s a composition that was a product of failed attempts to throw out various statutes through parliament, that failed.” “What it became was simply a mechanism for re-electing the Conservative federal government,

Semi driver charged in Tuesday crash SURREY – Firefighters used the Jaws of Life to pull a badly injured Surrey motorist out of his wrecked Toyota 4Runner after it crashed with a Kenworth flatdeck truck in South Surrey on Tuesday. The 27-year-old driver of the SUV was heading north on King George Boulevard near 48th Avenue at about 7:50 a.m. when the truck crossed both northbound lanes to make a left turn, contrary to a right-turnonly sign. The Toyota’s driver swerved to miss the cab, hitting the third axle at the rear of the truck. He was rushed to hospital, suffering from multiple fractures. “He’s expected to make a recovery,” Surrey RCMP Cpl. Barb Creighton said. Had he not been wearing his seatbelt, she said, “It would have been a very different story.” The driver of the semi has been charged with driving without due care for attempting the left turn. He was not injured.

‘Brave’ Surrey cop recovering after house fire SURREY – A Surrey Mountie was treated for smoke inhalation Tuesday after he spotted a house on fire in Clayton while he was on routine patrol and went inside to see if anyone needed rescuing. This happened in the 18800-block of 72nd Avenue, at about 2 p.m. Cpl. Drew Grainger said the constable went through the house, looking for people. Finding none, he got out as firefighters arrived and was taken to Langley Memorial Hospital. “He’s very brave,” Grainger said. Firefighters and police are investigating what caused the fire, which badly damaged the unoccupied house.

Nothing in ‘failure’ of a budget for Surrey, critics say Tom Zytaruk

Now staff twitter@tomzytaruk

SURREY – A $10,000 maximum grant for new home buyers and fitness and arts tax credits for children to the tune of $25 per child are a few of the highlights from the provincial budget revealed Tuesday. “We will continue seeking ways to make life a little easier for families as the climate of global economic uncertainty continues. It’s a budget that speaks to the times that we’re in, ” said Finance Minster Kevin Falcon, Liberal MLA for Surrey-Cloverdale. But while the ink was still drying on the document, critics slammed the new provincial budget on numerous fronts. See also VIEWPOINT › page 12

Surrey-Whalley MLA Bruce Ralston, NDP finance critic, dug into the budget. “There’s really nothing in it for most of the citizens of Surrey,” Ralston said. Ralston maintains that rather than set up the children’s fitness and arts tax credit, which he called a “boutique” cut, it would have been better to put that money into the public school system “so everyone can

benefit.” Ralston charged that the budget contains “no evidence of change” from the Gordon Campbell days. “It’s a complete failure in that regard,” he said, adding Premier Christy Clark is “living out Gordon Campbell’s mandate.” Falcon announced Tuesday that the Ministry of Health’s budget will increase by $1.5 billion over the next three years. Still, the BC Nurses’ Union calls the “historically small increases” in healthcare spending, outlined in the budget, ignore the need for more staffing to support seniors and other patients. “This budget provides health authorities no resources to ensure patients are safe as they languish in hospital hallways or wait at

home for limited community-based support or for placement in long term care homes,” union president Debra McPherson said. The B.C. Health Coalition also criticized the budget for being “silent” on seniors’ care. Falcon said funding for school districts will increase, despite declining enrollment. But Susan Lambert, president of the B.C. Teachers Federation, says Tuesday’s budget signals deep cuts to public schools. “Sadly, this government is putting B.C. in a race to the bottom,” she said. Meanwhile, the Canadian Office and Professional Employees Union, which represents BC Hydro and ICBC workers, accused the government of “raiding” Crown corporation coffers while rates are rising. “They’re mismanaging two of B.C.’s most vitally important Crown corporations to cover for their own financial ineptitude,” said David Black, president of COPE 378.

Barry O’Neill, president of the Canadian Union of Public Workers, said the new budget has average British Columbians paying more for less. “Hydro rates are going up by seven per cent, ICBC rates are going up by four per cent and the Liberals are jacking up tuition fees by five per cent in the first year of the fiscal plan alone,” O’Neill noted. John Cummins, leader of the BC Conservative Party, slammed the Liberals for delivering what he characterized as “an NDP budget.” “The core features of this budget are ballooning debt levels, higher taxes and growing spending masked by accounting tricks,” Cummins charged. “After budget 2012, most working British Columbians will also pay about $75 more on their provincial income tax payments.”

WHITE ROCK – White Rock council rejected a bid by a local business club to eliminate winter pay parking on the waterfront. The White Rock Business Improvement Association was also pushing council to introduce seasonal rates for the rest of the year in a bid to boost business at shops and restaurants along the waterfront. Currently, it costs visitors $1 per hour to plug a meter during the winter months from Nov. 1 to Feb. 28 and $3 per hour the rest of the year. Coun. Larry Robinson said White Rock’s parking rates are in line with other cities in Metro Vancouver. “I really don’t see a problem with people paying three dollars to enjoy a night out or to go down and walk on the promenade,” Robinson said.

SURREY – Surrey Public Market, which has been sitting empty for over a decade, is getting a new lease on life. The new owner plans to lease the 40,000square-foot building and might seek zoning approval from the City of Surrey for mixed development on the northern part of the property at King George Highway and 64 Avenue. Todd Bohn of Frontline Real Estate Services, said he’s looking for a single tenant for the space.

Bohn noted the building sits atop a 135stall underground parking lot, which adds to its lease appeal. The building, with its open floor layout, would be suitable for retail or assembly use. Bohn said interest in leasing the property is running strong – he figures he received about a dozen calls Wednesday alone. Bohn said the owner has two options for the northern side of the land – either sell it or develop it.

Sea level rise poses flood risk for Delta Researchers use 3D technology to illustrate need for flood strategy Sandor Gyarmati Delta Optimist

DELTA – Planning needs to be done now to address the future sea level rise in South Delta, say researchers who provided ominous visuals of what could unfold. Current estimates have the sea level rise for South Delta at about 1.2 metres by 2100. However, at a science symposium in Vancouver on the weekend, a pair of researchers made a more dire prediction, contending the original estimates might be too conservative. David Flanders of the University of B.C and Simon Fraser University professor of geology John Clague told a symposium for the annual convention of the American Association for the Advancement of Science that planning is needed for the possibility of a more rapid rise. Using computer visualizations of rising sea levels in a low-lying coastal municipality

Delta participated in a UBC project using visual modeling and computer techniques to come up with 3D images of what Boundary Bay might look by 2100 due to sea level rise. like Delta, they illustrated ways to adapt to climate change impacts such as flooding and storms surges. “To me, the visualizations are the only way that you can tell the complete story of climate change and its impacts in a lowlying coastal community,” said Flanders,

with the Collaborative for Advanced Landscape Planning (CALP), prior to the symposium. Delta participated in the federally funded project, which shows what the community would look like if nothing is done. According to CALP, there’s an urgent need

for governments at all levels in Canada to make decisions concerning adaptation and planning strategies. Noting planning is already well underway on how Delta can deal with a 1.2-metre rise in sea level by the end of the century, deputy engineering director Hugh Fraser said current estimates are based on information from government and scientists. Delta’s dike system is constructed to what’s described as a 200-year flood level, which means the risk of flooding is estimated to be 0.5 per cent in a given year. That means there’s is a 99.5 per cent chance that flooding from high water will not occur. What’s not clear is how the current dike system would hold up with rising sea levels due to climate change by 2100, but the computer images suggests there needs to be upgrades. Fraser, noting a number of works to dikes and pump stations have already been done, said upgrades would be gradually carried out as funding becomes available. He said the province is also undertaking a study to look at the costs of improving the coastal flood protection system.

CITY OF SURREY OPEN HOUSE

AN INVITATION TO A PUBLIC OPEN HOUSE You are invited to a public Open House to provide input on the second phase of a feasibility study for the development of a Sports, Arts, Culture and Harmony Centre in Newton. The centre would provide facility space available to the entire community including multi-purpose rooms, culture and heritage interpretation display areas, gymnasiums, fitness rooms, a restaurant and day care. Staff and consultants will be on hand to receive community feedback. The first phase of the feasibility study researched a proposal to develop a community centre on lands at Princess Margaret Park. A public Open House was held in November 2011 to present this proposal to the community. Since that Open House, Council has directed staff to investigate other possible sites for the centre. Staff and consultants have researched two other possible sites at Unwin Park and on City owned lands in Newton Town Centre. Plans and information for the feasibility of the three locations will be on display at the Open House.

The Open House will be held on: Date: Tuesday February 28th, 2012 Time: 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Place: Cedar Building -- Conference Room Kwantlen Polytechnic University 12666 72nd Avenue, Newton, Surrey

B.C. budget

Falcon takes one for team as he delivers gutsy budget ViewFrom TheCheap Seats Michael Booth

T

here was no lonelier place to be Tuesday than in the shoes of B.C. finance minister Kevin Falcon. The Cloverdale MLA found himself in a Catch 22 situation when he stood in the legislature to deliver the province’s new budget. Falcon finished second to Premier Perky in the race to become leader of the provincial Liberals and instead of a silver medal, his reward was the thankless task of managing the government’s books. If an NHL referee’s job is tough with 17,000 people in the building thinking they can do his job better than him, imagine what it’s like for Falcon with more than three million people second guessing you. Citing a desire to get back to a balanced budget by 2013 – there’s a novel idea – the finance minister outlined a plan that was big on spending freezes and short on taxpayer perks.

Falcon had hardly settled back into his chair at the conclusion of his speech when the snipers began firing away at him. Apparently he didn’t give enough money to arts, sports, teachers, health care and infrastructure; nor did he lower taxes, give more money to the justice system, cure cancer, lower the boiling point of water or turn a bunch of loaves and fishes into a five course gourmet feast. Of course, had Falcon spent the day shoveling money off the back of a truck to appease all the special interest groups, the snipers would be howling about how much debt he was amassing with no regard for the future. No matter what he presented Tuesday, the man needed to wear a flak jacket under his spiffy suit. If anything, Falcon’s budget was pretty gutsy. There’s a provincial election looming in 2013 and, instead of trying to buy some votes with juicy perks for targeted groups that would benefit the Liberals, Falcon opted to pull hard on the reins with no significant spending increases.

Do I believe the Liberals are going to carry this tough times approach to budgeting into the next election campaign? Not a chance. The recent Canadian census shows steady growth in British Columbia’s population and with more bodies, there comes more expenses for things like health care, education, infrastructure, etc. Whether they like it or not, the Liberals are going to have to spend more money just to maintain the status quo. Couple that with the innate political urge to spend taxpayer cash to preserve one’s own skin and you can be assured some cash will miraculously appear (Visa? Mastercard?) to purchase electoral goodies in the months leading up to the next election. When that happens,

premier Christy Clark will be beaming her megawatt smile as she delivers the good news and the entire Liberal caucus will be scrambling to get in on the assorted photo ops. On Tuesday, however, Falcon was the poor sap left exposed to deliver a stocking full of coal on Christmas morning and take a political bullet on behalf of his loving colleagues.

DYI DOG-SLAYING MANUAL RIDICULOUS Doggone it, now what? The budget deservedly received most of the media attention this week, but the money news thankfully did not completely overshadow the release of one new government policy. In the wake of last year’s horrific slaughter of sled dogs in Whistler, the provincial Ministry of Agriculture has come

up with a new Sled Dog Code of Practise. The new document outlines the standards for the care of such animals but it also includes a section that details what the government believes is the best way to humanely shoot your dog. That’s right, the government has spent tax dollars to create a DYI kit for whacking your unwanted mutt. The new canine euthanasia regulations includes such details as diagrams, restraining techniques and how to calm the poor beastie before sending it to the great beyond – “Tell him about the ball George; tell him about the ball.” Wow. I never knew. I thought a hired assassin with a veterinarian’s license and a needle filled with an overdose of sleeping serum was the most humane way

to send man’s best friend to the great dog park in the sky. Instead, the government has provided a step-by-step manual for people who prefer a hands-on approach to disposing of their unwanted companions. Tell me again how this will prevent another Whistler massacre? Ah, I see. The dogs will now be happy and relaxed when their date with the bullet comes, not yelping in terror at the end of a rope as they watch their buddies getting blown away. If you do it right, maybe Fido will roll over for a tummy rub and give you a clearer shot. Much better. Thanks B.C. Government. And to think I thought this whole sled dog investigation was a waste of time and money. Michael Booth can be reached at mbooth@ thenownewspaper.com

Watts’ reckless agenda created school crisis Drunk driver Piper has suffered enough

The Editor, It was very nice of Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts’ friends to help her out at election time and promise a couple of new schools for our city. Now, almost four months later, it’s either another empty promise or another Liberal lie. No money has come – not even the seed money to start the planning. Surrey Board of Education Chair Laurae McNally continues to emphasize the blame is not with the Ministry of Education but with the provincial treasury board. I’m sure she’s aware Kevin Falcon – from Surrey – is the finance minister. Where is he? While it’s easy for McNally to point fingers at the provincial government, let’s also admit it was Watts and Surrey First who created the school crisis in the first place. The recent census figures show Surrey grew by almost 75,000 people from 2006 to 2011. Watts and her colleagues knew full well there was no capital funding forthcoming, so why did they continue their reckless develop-at-all-costs agenda? Alas, in her time of need just weeks before the civic election, there were Dianne’s friends in the provincial government lining up to help bail her out. Now that the election is over, will the Liberals keep their promise? Their past record doesn’t instill confidence. But I believe the ballot box is always half full; there’s a provincial election coming in about 15 months, so we are likely to hear this feel-good announcement several more times. On the other hand, if no cheque is signed, will Watts have the backbone to even murmur? Or did the school crisis she created magically disappear for another three years?

The Editor, After reading about reasons for a Family Day in B.C., I started thinking back a few decades. Back then, we had a Family Day – a day most families could be together, eat together, have fun together. Most stores were closed and most sports didn’t start until after noon. That day was called Sunday. All the reasons for a Family Day now are pretty much those we lost when we gave up Sunday as our day of rest. People didn’t spend more with stores open seven days a week, it was just spread over more days, more jobs were not created because all stores were 1/7th less busy, in fact so called customer service deteriorated and never recovered. That Family Day was every week, not once a year.

The Editor, Re: “Court award travesty reflects badly on system,” the Now letters, Feb. 16. I would like Tim P. Banks to explain to us what Steve Piper’s conviction for impaired driving has to do with his injury lawsuit. As a parent, I do not pretend to feel the pain the Wright family must still be feeling for the loss of their son, but I fail to see what that has to do with Piper’s situation 10 years later. As stated, Piper was convicted and sentenced for his crime – end of story.

The Editor, Re: “Unsustainable growth nothing to brag about,” the Now letters, Feb. 14. Stephanie Ryan is absolutely right with her comments about Surrey’s growth. Nobody – certainly not Dianne Watts and her council – seems to be able or willing to stop this kind of ill-managed and festering growth. We need to have more hospitals, schools, public transportation, but instead we get an endless influx of people, cheap housing developments and industrial-looking box stores and strip malls. Surrey has become the ugliest city I have ever lived in. Watts should be ashamed to be an important force behind the ‘uglinization’ of Surrey. M.M. Keij, South Surrey

PINNACLE

Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts helped create the city’s school crisis, one reader says.

The Editor, Re: “Killer driver gets $70,000,” the Now, Feb. 14. It is disgusting how you could put this in the paper. Both families have been through enough, to bring this into everyone’s home again is disgusting on your part. Do you not think that Steve Piper suffers every day with what he did? And what about his family? I don’t see your newspaper writing about what other people get from ICBC claims – why bring this up for this family? It has nothing to do with the fatal accident. Steve Piper has tried to give back by going to high schools and talking about what he did and about dealing with depression. You should be ashamed of your paper for writing about this again. I don’t think that little boy who died would want to make the families suffer more.

You go on to state that he should live with that on his conscience to his dying day – please tell us, how do you know that he will not? Do you personally know Piper and his family? Have you seen him act in any way that would show that he is without a conscience? Probably not. In regard to your summons for jury duty – instead of complaining about the system like a great number of people do, you could maybe try getting involved to help change the system. If you did do your jury duty maybe, just maybe, you would find out exactly how our system works and realize that it is not like some moronic TV show. And yes, I have served on a number of juries, and no, I do not know Piper or his family.

White Rock Social Justice Film Festival

Six docs put spin on today’s hot topics By-donation annual event is this weekend at First United Church Tom Zillich

Now staff twitter@tomzillich

Watch, listen and think. Essentially, this is what organizers hope for those who attend a series of movies this weekend at a church venue. White Rock Social Justice Film Festival, now in its eighth year, happens Friday and Saturday (Feb. 24-25) at First United Church, 15385 Semiahmoo Ave. Six documentary movies will be screened at the two-day festival, a by-donation gathering that aims to showcase some thought-provoking movies. “Our intent is to create awareness of all these problems we have in the world today,” said Phil DeRosa, a director of the small but dedicated society that stages the festival. “There are so many problems that need to be addressed, and there is so much silence on some of the issues, and also misinformation out there. We’re trying to counteract that with this festival.” The festival was initiated as an outreach program at First United Church, which still serves as venue for the festival and also the semi-regular Friday Film Night events hosted by White Rock Social Justice Film Festival Society. The fest has gained momentum over the years, with as many as 225 people in attendance for a single screening, DeRosa said. This year’s festival is launched Friday (Feb. 24) at 7 p.m. with director Oliver Stone’s South of the Border, a “road trip” kind of movie that explores the social and political movements of South America, with interviews of seven of its elected presidents. Discussions and Q&A sessions follow each of the six documentaries shown during the festival. For South of the Border, the post-film guest is Merli Vanegas, Venezuelan Consul General.

Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez (above) rides a bicycle in his grandmother’s backyard in the Oliver Stone-directed documentary movie South of the Border, to be screened as part of this weekend’s White Rock Social Justice Film Festival (Feb. 24-25). Also featured is How Sweet the Sound, a look at folk icon Joan Baez (left).

Our intent is to create awareness of all these problems we have in the world today. “Those post-film discussions really make it all worthwhile,” DeRosa, a five-year member of the festival organizing group, told the Now. Five movies will be shown Saturday (Feb. 25), including a 10 a.m. screening of Rainforest, the Limit of Spendour, with filmmaker/photographer Richard Boyce in attendance. Other films screened Saturday include Amy Miller’s Myths for Profit (11:30 a.m.) and Blood and Oil (2 p.m.),

both of which will be followed by discussions led by Peter Prontzos, a political science professor at Langara College. Later, Taggart Siegel’s Queen of the Sun: What Are the Bees Telling Us? (3:40 p.m.) will offer a post-film chat with local bee master John Gibeau. The final movie, a 7 p.m. showing of the music doc Joan Baez: How Sweet the Sound, features a festival-closing concert with teen musicians Andrew Skepast and Raaz Chatterjee. “We always try to end the festival on a lighter note,” DeRosa said. A more detailed look at each of the films in the festival is online at whiterocksocialjusticefilmfestival.ca. If you go, consider bringing a loonie for a cup of organic coffee provided by Holy Smoke Coffee Company — all proceeds to White Rock Social Justice Film Society.

White Rock council has given the green light to a summer music festival on the beach. Janice Savage, owner of Beyond Scarlett Arts & Entertainment, sought approval from council to stage the White Rock International Music Festival 2012, with the goal of making it an annual event. On Monday night, council approved the event, although there was some concern over crowd control on the beach. “I was overjoyed,” Savage said the following day. Savage said the music festival, which will be free to attend, could give the city’s tourism industry a big boost. The festival is set for the weekend of July 21-22, nestled in between two other high-profile summer crowd magnets, the Tour de White Rock bike race and the Spirit of the Sea Festival. The stage will be next to the big white rock on the beach, and Savage promises the family-friendly festival will feature music to suit every taste, from rock to symphony and jazz. Coun. Larry Robinson was skeptical about Savage’s estimated attendance figure of 2,000 over the two days. “If this is even a halfdecent event, by Sunday it’s going to go viral,” said Robinson, who supported the bid. Robinson also wanted the festival to start and finish earlier than proposed, to avoid any potential problems after night falls. Savage said the crowd estimate was partly based on main-stage attendance at past Spirit of the Sea festivals. She noted the attendance figure is an rough estimate and concedes that sunny weather could inflate those numbers. “If it’s not a sunny day, the crowds won’t be as big,”

she said. Savage said she met with White Rock RCMP brass about a month ago to devise a policing strategy. She said her company is going to hire a private security company and pay

for any policing done by White Rock RCMP. Savage noted there will be no road closures during the festival and, in keeping with the family-friendly theme, no beer gardens. Coun. Louise Hutchinson

mused the music festival might be better staged as part of the Spirit of the Sea festival, a suggestion that was rejected by Savage. “At his point we’re not interested in that,” she said. Savage said the festival

won’t cost the city a dime. Her company and corporate sponsorships will pick up the tab. Companies interested in supporting the festival can contact Savage at info@ whiterockmusicfest.com.

If it’s not a sunny day, the crowds won’t be as big.

‘Riding the Rails’ event Saturday at Surrey Museum Make tracks to Surrey Museum for an afternoon of railroad fun this Saturday, Feb. 25. Train fans, a railway artist and experts, plus model train hobbyists will converge for a by-donation event that coincides with B.C. Electric Railway: More Than Just a Tram, the latest exhibit at the Cloverdale-based museum. A garden railroad display in museum’s hall offers a look at the fascinating hobby, which combines model trains with the outdoors. Local members of Greater Vancouver Railway Club will be bringing both electric and steam trains to the museum on multiple tracks, complete with bells and whistles.

Rare ‘Cook Off’ time for siblings Tom Zillich

Now staff twitter@tomzillich

Award-winning barbecue chef Brian Misko and his siblings are a team on a new Food Network show called Family Cook Off. It’s a bit like game show Family Feud done in the kitchen, said Misko, who lives in the Clayton area of Surrey and runs House of Q Foods Ltd.

When taping for the show was done in Vancouver last September, it was only the third visit for Misko and all three siblings. His sisters (Valerie Bielenda and Kelly Medeiros) live in Alberta, and his brother, Ken Kavanagh, put up for adoption at birth, is from Ontario. “It was emotional for us to be together again,” Misko said, “but how do you practise when everyone is spread out across the country like that?”

Video-chat sessions via Skype helped, and “it was all a fantastic time,” according to Misko. Family Cook Off , produced by Vancouver-based Force Four Entertainment, debuts at 9 p.m. on Thursday, March 1. Two teams of families are featured in each of the show’s 12 episodes, hosted by ET Canada’s Kim D’Eon and judged by Trish Magwood and Anthony Sedlak.

Theatre community says goodbye to Ken Morton ArtsScene Melanie Minty Columnist

to further its fortunes. He was appointed by Jim Warner, then-president of Theatre BC, as a member of the board with a special responsibility for the Vancouver zone. He was given recognition awards for his work in the Skeena zone and, later, in Vancouver. He remained a dedicated believer in strong and active community theatre, as was shown by his keen interest in Theatre BC. Well done, Ken. I hope you can hear us giving you Ken Morton your last round of applause. Fortunately, for community theatre, there are more Ken-like people still involved. Jacqollyne Keath is one of those people. She has directed and acted with so many theatre clubs, I honestly don’t know where she ever found the time to get her PhD. Now we can call her Dr. Keath, I suppose (although she really doesn’t use that title). Keath’s current project is as director of Vagabond Players. The group’s next production, The Kitchen Witches, is a lovely

comedy with cable-access cooking show divas vying for centre stage. Move over Martha Stewart! The Kitchen Witches runs from March 15 to April 14 at Bernie Legg Theatre, at Queen’s Park in New West. Call 604-521-0412 for reservations, or book online, reservations@vagabondplayers.ca. Auditions are being held for Bard in the Valley’s third summer production. This year it is Twelfth Night.No appointment required, just arrive March 4 at Douglas Park Recreation Centre at 1 p.m. to hear an outline of the production, performance expectations and rehearsal commitments, and to complete the audition form. Everyone auditioning will be asked to do a cold read from the script, and some will be asked to read for specific roles. Do not send digital headshots or resumes, but bring a hard copy of both. This is a non-equity production. Rehearsals will begin May 2 and there are 10 performances over three weekends in August. Everyone is welcome! For more information, contact producer Diane Gendron at 604-534-4242 or diane@ valis.ca, or director June Ainsworth at 604882-8812 or junea@shaw.ca.

ive life with passion. Immerse yourself with what you love to do. Sure, you can gripe about not having enough free time, or funds, to keep you in the lifestyle you would prefer, etc. Go ahead, I’ll give you a minute or so to vent. In the end, you do realize that there is no free time. Time costs — maybe not in dollars and cents, but it is important to use our allotted life time doing something we love doing. OK, not 24/7 — that would be a big burnout, for sure. I devote my “free” time to dance and theatre. Love it. And I am not alone. Ken Morton was one of those individuals who squeezed out a lot of theatre time. Ken recently passed away, and the entire community-theatre world will certainly miss him, one way or another. Ken was a longtime member of White Rock Players’ Club, having been an actor, director, producer, president and Theatre BC zone

rep. He had a lifelong passion for theatre. Ah yes, there is that passion thing again. Ken arrived in Canada in 1969 and immediately immersed himself in Terrace Little Theatre. Before Terrace and Canada, Ken was directly active with various community-theatre groups in Austria, Germany and England, as an actor/director and club member — a doer, rather than a watcher. While with the British Forces overseas, he was responsible for promoting theatre on several army bases outside of England. He organized workshops and fostered participation in festivals. Ken encouraged local community theatre groups to get involved with what is now Theatre BC. His participation in theatre is almost legend; he taught in addition to his many other roles. He became very active with White Rock Players after he retired, and was president of the club during the difficult time when its playhouse was closed by the city, as it did not meet code. He worked hard for the theatre to raise money needed to do necessary renovations to the theatre. At that time, the Vancouver zone was not very active and needed a shot in the arm. Ken again became zone chair and helped

Shadows (pictured), an alt-indie rock band based in Surrey, this week reached the top-three round in the B.C.’s Best Teen Band contest staged by Youthink magazine. “We’re the underdogs in this competition,” said Shadows guitarist Dianne Ocampo, bandmates with Ashley Weis on vocals, Kyle Turner on bass and drummer Chris Pallot. Cash and music-related goodies will go to the contest winner, named April 28 after a live-performance playoff involving Shadows and fellow finalists Kate Kurdyak and Langley-based band Derrival, at Electric Owl bar in Vancouver.

Meanwhile, tickets are $20 for the Semiahmoo band’s March 2 performance, to feature celebrated sax man Campbell Ryga as guest on a pair of songs (the ballad “A Flower is a Lovesome Thing” and an arrangement of “Stella By Starlight”).

Other numbers that night will include Radiohead’s haunting “Everything in Its Right Place” and George Gershwin’s “Hunting Wabbits.” Traditionally, the school’s top-level Grade 12 jazz band has done a yearly solo tour, with Cuba and New Orleans among prior destinations. This year, Las Vegas International Jazz Festival is it, and band director Dave Fullerton is jazzed about

‘Circle Mirror’ doesn’t shine Now staff twitter@tomzillich

The world of amateur theatre is explored in Circle Mirror Transformation, the latest Arts Club on Tour production to hit the main stage at Surrey Arts Centre. There are excruciating silences in playwright Annie Baker’s dramedy, which falls a little flat thanks to a script that doesn’t offer much in the way of action or character development. I haven’t seen the play on stage in Surrey (it opened Tuesday, Feb. 21), but I witnessed the same Nicola Cavendish-directed production last fall on the Arts Club’s Granville Island stage. Circle Mirror Transformation is set in a small-town community centre that serves as an acting studio for an instructor (played by Donna White) at odds with her husband (Alex Diakun). A big-city actress (Anita Wittenberg), on the run from something, or someone, is part of a small group that also includes a recently divorced carpenter (Brian Linds) and an introverted, Goth-ish teenaged girl (Emilee-Juliette Glyn-Jones). Every one of them has issues of some kind, and Marty

(the instructor) has them doing all manner of exercises in the class, providing some of the funniest moments of Baker’s play. Eventually, secrets are revealed about each of the characters. “I knew I wanted a doomed class romance that left one character embarrassed and the other heartbroken,” playwright Baker told an interviewer with Vermont Playhouse. “I knew I wanted the characters to deliver monologues as each other. I knew I wanted us to know them intimately by the end of the play, but without having heard any lines of dialogue like, ‘Hey, Mary. Remember when we fell in love 20 years ago in Eureka, California?’ I also wanted to show how beautiful (and noble!) it is when people throw themselves earnestly and unselfishly and unselfconsciously into something, even if it’s a therapeutic reenactment.” Baker’s script is at times fun and playful, but all those entertaining acting games and some decent acting can’t save Baker’s halfbaked story. Circle Mirror Transformation continues at Surrey Arts Centre until March 3. Tickets range from $25 to $45 at the box office, 604501-5566 or online at www.surrey.ca/arts.

I only needed a couple of tablespoons, so I broke off a small knob and proceeded to the cashier. She rang up my purchase and it came to a mere 17 cents. Usually I purchase ginger in much larger quantities, so I have never really thought about how little it actually costs. Immediately I wondered why anyone would not use fresh ginger. The fibrous root of the ginger plant is what we know as ginger in the produce section of our local grocery store. This large, knobby, light-skinned root is available is various sizes and shapes. When choosing ginger, make sure it is firm, smooth

and free of blemishes and/or mold. Most people always have powdered ginger in their selection of spices and herbs, but fresh will provide a much more pure flavour. The only application I find powdered ginger preferable in is creating a dry spice mix to use as a meat or seafood rub. Due to the pungency or “hotness” of fresh ginger, many people are selective about eating it and opt to use powdered forms for less intensity, or use no ginger at all. It is to these people however, that I suggest using fresh ginger in small quantities. With fresh ginger, one will notice that recipes will offer a fresher, more aromatic ambience about them. A classic example of this is gingerbread. Many people still make gingerbread with powdered ginger. Using freshly grated ginger, however, will bring your recipe to new heights by offering an abundance see › page 25

Fresh is best, but ginger can be stored in whole form in the refrigerator for two to three weeks, or kept frozen for months. ‹ from page 24

of character to the flavour of the cookies or cake form of this classic holiday treat. Just practice “moderation” if the thought of the pungent taste in your recipe scares you. The easiest way to peel ginger is to simply scrape off the skin with the edge of a teaspoon, and then cut off the exposed root for further cutting as an ingredient. It is fibrous, so it is almost always recommended to be chopped or grated, but it can be added in larger pieces to stir-fries or other dishes if desired, as the cooking process will help to diminish its toughness. It can be stored in the whole form in the refrigerator for two to three weeks, or kept frozen

for many months. Ginger is used in many applications. Not only can it be purchased fresh and in powdered form, but also preserved, candied, pickled and crystallized. It is also believed to have many medicinal properties — to reduce fever, suppress appetite and stimulate digestion, among others. To make fresh ginger tea, boil one cup of water for a few minutes with one teaspoon of freshly chopped ginger, and sweeten if desired. If you dislike the ginger particles floating in your tea, then place the chopped ginger in a metal tea ball or an empty disposable tea bag.

ARTS & LIFE 10 questions for Luisa Marshall

How ‘Tina’ turned a 1987 gig into a career starter Now staff twitter@tomzillich

Before she hits the stage Sunday, Feb. 26 at White Rock’s Coast Capital Playhouse with Simply the Best, the Now hit Luisa Marshall with “10 Questions” related to her acclaimed Tina Turner tribute show. The Now: When was the first time you sang a Tina Turner song? Marshall: “Hmm, I remember after I watched Tina’s concert in Japan in 1987, I was so blown away that I decided to do a medley of Tina hit songs with my old band, Hall Of Fame. My first attempt to sing Tina’s hits was at the Westin Philippine Plaza Hotel in Manila, Philippines, way back 1987. The crowd loved it.” Was there a particular event in your life that made you think,‘Yes, I want to be a Tina Turner tribute artist’? “It wasn’t easy for me to decide whether I wanted to be a Tina Turner tribute artist or not. I had my doubts and fears. I hesitated after I did it for the first time in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, in 1995. That was when I finally wore a Tina Turner wig just for fun during my band’s ‘Proud Mary’ gimmick. When the crowd went nuts with my silly impersonation, the overwhelming applause inspired me. When I came back to Canada, I eventually experimented further, seriously studied her to perfect my tribute act.” How many times have you seen Turner in concert? “Well, I’ve seen her for the first time in Japan. It was actually my sister who convinced me to watch. We were lucky to get a day off from the manager of the bar

we were scheduled to perform that night. I remember getting lost on the subway train. We were running like crazy Filipinos to catch the grand entrance of the queen of rock and roll. Wow! We were in awe. I was mesmerized for months. Many years later, I saw her twice here in Vancouver.” What’s more difficult, trying to sing in Tina’s voice or fit into those tight leather skirts? “Ha ha, you’ll never guess. It’s actually the high-heeled stiletto shoes — my most hated shoes that have actually taken me to a lot of places all over the world. Although painful, several pairs I have are my second biggest investments.” Was it easy to find that great Tina-like wig? “I have lots of wigs from different eras but my favorite one is her ’90s look — big, fluffy and shorter. It was perfect for me. And no, it wasn’t easy to find one, so I had it custom made and it’s real hair, not synthetic. Very expensive. The company made it look so close to Tina’s hair that fans from all over really loved it. It works.” Have you ever met her in person — and what would you say if you ever did? “Oprah’s producer called and invited me twice in the past. Both times I ended up warming up the audience. My most memorable one was at Caesar’s Palace Colosseum. I was on stage for 20 minutes getting interviewed, and then sang ‘Proud Mary’ while Oprah, Tina and Cher watched. I met her (Turner) on the way back to my seat. I was speechless and numb the whole time (laughts). If I ever got the chance to talk to Tina, I will say it’s an honour for me to pay tribute to my idol.” What’s the biggest stage (most number of people) for your tribute to Tina?

It wasn’t easy for me to decide whether I wanted to be a Tina Turner tribute artist or not. I had doubts and fears.

“Peach Festival in Penticton. My Tina Turner tribute in 2010 broke all records of this festival since it started in 1947. I rocked the stage with my band and dancers in front of an estimated 12,000 people. I actually broke my own record of over 10,000 people at the PNE main stage several years ago.” What’s your favourite Tina song to sing?

“There are a few great ones but my favorite is ‘Simply The Best.’ It’s one of the most inspiring, positive songs ever. I will never get tired of it — very uplifting.” Are there any of her songs you dread singing (be honest)? “Oh yes! ‘Steamy Windows’ (laughs). I never had a chance to sing ‘Golden Eye’ but hope I won’t ever get to sing it.” Finish this sentence: If I weren’t singing the songs of Tina Turner, I’d be.... “Still singing but as myself with the influence of some of my most favourites. I’m a fan of different types of music; you can see it in my other show called Luisa as Her Divas. I love the velvety Natalie Cole, electrifying vocal renditions of Patti Labelle and a few heartwarming Whitney Houston ballad songs that will challenge me to a different level. Or, my other answer to this question is, I’d be doing my other passion: hosting, writing , editing and filming my TV talk show, Simply The Best: The Luisa Marshall Show, which airs on Shaw multicultural channel 116 every Monday at 9 p.m. This TV show is the extension of myself. I’m proud to say the show is in its third season now. I just love my viewers.” Tickets are $39.50 (plus fees) for Marshall’s Simply The Best show at Coast Capital Playhouse, 1532 Johnston Rd., White Rock.

Neutral palette = timeless rooms Decorating a child’s room can be very inspiring. This room plays a special role in a child’s life and is often an extension of the parents’ desire to provide a nurturing cocoon. Decorating a child’s room should be fun, so tap into the child in you and start the process from that perspective. There are no “right” or “best” colours to recommend, as this is a personal choice. There are, however, considerations that make the process a pleasant experience for all involved. Many times, clients start their renovation projects with wall colours. Although this is definitely an important part of the ambience, it is recommended to leave the actual colour to the end. You want to start with your limited design options — those items that must stay, such as flooring and furniture. These will need to be kept in mind when paint colours, window coverings and accessories are added. Next, consider the function intended for this space. If your children spend active or creative time in this space, consider providing easy access to

Of all the decorating options available, paint is one of the most cost-effective products available. toys and books. This can greatly assist your child in keeping the room tidy. Redesigning closet space and providing shelving at a height they can reach will go a long way to helping them in this as well. Now you can consider colours and patterns. One concern commonly voiced by parents is over-spending time and money on a child’s room, only to see the child quickly outgrow it. But rest assured, changing the

colour down the road will not be an exorbitant expenditure; of all the decorating options available, paint is one of the most cost-effective products available. Include your children in the design. To simplify this task, first select three options you will be pleased with and then have them choose one. In every colour palette, there are calm and soothing colours, but it is up to you to together select the colour they want to live with. A neutral shade is definitely safe, as you can change the accessories as they grow. But remember that this is a child’s space, so today’s accessories should be engaging and of interest to your child. Creams and off-whites can be a lovely backdrop for a room, and the blue, taupe, grey and green colour palettes also have neutral options. Wallpaper is also an interesting option, especially in plaid patterns. Plaid is timeless and it can suit both boys and girls of all age groups. Consider adding wallpaper to the lower portion of the room and build your colour palette around that.

ARTS & LIFE At the movies

Listen up, Oscar: Make it interesting Sunday, huh? ReelView Julie Crawford Columnist

Dear shiny, heathen Hollywood god: Lots of people will be praying to you this weekend, I’m sure. But I have a few requests for Sunday night’s big Oscar telecast (4 p.m. Feb. 26 on ABC). Deliver us from boring acceptance speeches that read like a grocery list of agents, producers, managers and best boys. The name Harvey Weinstein should pass no nominee’s lips, and to be certain, o gilded one, perhaps you could wire a remote shock system to the statue itself, or a trap door directly under the microphone? In your goldness, please let me stay awake for the duration. No Randy Newmannominated songs are a good start, but when the Republican debates are more lively than the awards show, there’s a problem. Let at least one person momentarily lose control of their bodily functions, or protest the absence of B.C. wine in California liquor stores. Succinctly, of course.

Please let there be a jaw-dropping underdog winner to liven things up. Perhaps Damien Bichir in the Best Actor category, if only so that I can collect from Ladbrokes bookmakers, who are paying out 100/1. And thank you, o golden Ken-doll, for nominee Melissa McCarthy, and may there be more chubby chic on the runway in years to come. I’m tired of Best Actress nominees who look like coat racks with bolts of silk thrown over them. Some additional thoughts, dear Oscar: BEST PICTURE Why was there no love for the capper to the Harry Potter franchise, considered by many to be its best? In its stead is the mediocre Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, a sentimental fave because it deals with the after-effects of 9/11 and stars Academy darling Tom Hanks. Drive, best movie of the year in my book, was shut out entirely. While Hugo leads the pack with 11 nominations, the Academy will say “oui” to The Artist, bien sur. BEST ACTOR It’s easy to see why Michael Fassbender was overlooked for his gritty performance in Shame: phallocentric Hollywood likely didn’t think he needed an Oscar to pick up women

when he’s clearly so anatomically gifted. Ryan Gosling, who says more with a look than pages of dialogue can communicate, was likewise overlooked for both Drive and The Ides of March, as was Leonardo DiCaprio for J. Edgar. I’m ABC when it comes to this category, as in Anyone But Clooney. Jean Dujardin should take this one. BEST ACTRESS It’s a horse race between the horseylooking Margaret Thatcher (Meryl Streep) and Viola Davis for The Help, with Michelle Williams (My Week With Marilyn), Rooney Mara (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) and Glenn Close (Albert Nobbs) trailing miles behind. How can you nominate Melissa McCarthy for Bridesmaids but not onewoman funny machine Kristen Wiig? (OK, so she is up for Best Original Screenplay.) Tilda Swinton likewise was snubbed for We Need To Talk About Kevin. Davis should win it, though I would’ve swapped her for Elizabeth Olsen’s performance in Martha Marcy May Marlene in a second. BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR The only thing to say in this category, other than congratulations Mr. Plummer, is: come on, no Albert Brooks? His Mafioso turn in Drive was a career highlight. At this point,

Kenneth Branagh (My Week With Marilyn), Max von Sydow (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close), Nick Nolte (Warrior) and Jonah Hill (Moneyball) are just seat-fillers, since Christopher Plummer is a shoo-in. BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS Sandra Bullock was the best thing about Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, but was overlooked in favour of Octavia Spencer (The Help), Berenice Bejo (The Artist), Janet McTeer (Albert Nobbs), Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids) and Jessica Chastain. Chastain could’ve gotten the nod for a number of performances in 2011, but stands no chance being nominated in the same film as crowdfavourite Spencer. Also missing: Carey Mulligan, fabulous in both Shame and Drive. And finally, poor Steven Spielberg. That he was shut out in the Best Director category was a surprise (since his War Horse is up for Best Picture) but The Adventures of Tintin should certainly have been up in the Best Animated film category, which features two sequels/ spinoffs (Kung Fu Panda 2, Puss In Boots), two films that few people on this continent saw (Chico and Rita, A Cat In Paris) and Gore Verbinski’s indulgent Rango, which is likely to come home with the prize.

Nylund marvels about his place in history Michael Booth

Former NHL defenceman Gary Nylund now divides his time between work as a Delta firefighter and assistant coaching duties with the BCHL’s Surrey Eagles. (Photo: SURREY NOW) easier to move as a free agent now. Back then the teams didn’t want you to move and they made it very difficult for you to move. The only reason I did move is that I fell into a strange classification and somebody tweaked on it and that was it.” When Nylund joined the Maple Leafs as an underage player in 1982 following a stellar junior career with the Portland Winterhawks, free agency was unheard of in the NHL. League rules bound players to teams for as long as the team wanted them and the only

way to change clubs was through trades. The lone exception was the so called “double eagle” rule that granted restricted free agency to players who had four years in the NHL but played less than 220 games before the age of 23. These parameters were so restrictive that the only way a player could qualify was if he joined the league at a young age and anyone who did that would surly amass more than enough games to spoil their eligibility. That was the way the game was played until a 19-year-old Gary Nylund cracked

He played 16 games that season before reinjuring the knee, leading to major surgery. Nylund spent almost a year rehabbing the injury and played just 47 games in 1983-84 before settling in as a blue line regular in Toronto for the next two seasons.

Gary Nylund can only shake his head at the circumstances that turned him into a pop culture trivia question. The Surrey Eagles assistant coach played 608 games for three teams over an 11-year National Hockey League career, but his name comes up the most when people gather to play a popular board game. “I’m the answer to a Trivial Pursuit question — the sports edition I think it was,” he says with a laugh. “That’s my claim to fame now — I’m in Trivial Pursuit.” For the record, the question that makes Nylund smile concerns the first NHL player to ever change teams as a free agent. The answer, of course, is Nylund, who signed with the Chicago Blackhawks in 1986 following four seasons with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Nylund’s bemused laugh is understandable. It’s not as if signing a contract is the most significant thing the former bruising blue liner ever accomplished. He was a member of the first Canadian team to win a gold medal at the 1982 World Junior Hockey Championships and was a first round draft choice, third overall, of the Toronto Maple Leafs back when that team still kept their high picks. After retiring from the NHL, Nylund returned home to British Columbia and joined the Delta Fire Department where he still works today. In 2001, Nylund pulled two other firefighters to safety while fighting a chemical blaze on Annacis Island. In 2004 he was awarded a bravery medal for his actions that day. Despite all of those accomplishments, however, his most lasting impression came from the simple stroke of a pen on paper in the summer of 1986. “If that’s my place in hockey history... I don’t know,” Nylund says as he ponders the ramifications of his move. “I really haven’t thought much about it. Maybe my situation changed things because it certainly is a lot

Pegasus fends off Chileans to advance to semifinals Michael Booth

Fleetwood Park Dragons ball carrier Cyrille Butac (3) kept Bobcats defenders on their heels as she drove to the basket during senior girls basketball action Tuesday at Brookswood Secondary in Langley. The Bobcats built up a 50-19 halftime lead and went on to win the Fraser Valley Triple A regional playoff game by 77-41 score. (Photo: TROY LANDREVILLE - LANGLEY ADVANCE)

Two Newton teams met with decidedly different fates in quarter-final action of the Vancouver Metro Soccer League’s Imperial Cup playdowns last weekend. Defending provincial champion ICST Pegasus (VMSL premier) held off a determined Estrella de Chile (VMSL div. 1) 3-2 on Friday night. Meanwhile the same evening on the North Shore, Akal FC (d1) was blanked 3-0 by premier powerhouse West Van. The Surrey United Firefighters were slated to host the Metro Ford Wolves Saturday, but the game was rescheduled to tonight (Feb. 23) due to adverse playing conditions at Cloverdale Athletic Park. In Newton Friday, Pegasus had their hands full with a scrappy Chilean side. The Horsemen took the lead twice only to have the visitors battle back to tie the contest. Niko Marcina scored on a penalty kick in the eighth minute to open the scoring for Pegasus and Chetan Jhooty’s marker in the 35th minute put the home side up 2-1 at the break. Chile leveled the count early in the second half but Jhooty salvaged the evening by slotting a pass to a wide-open Reynold Stewart for the game winner in the 70th minute. Chile created a couple of superb scoring chances in the dying minutes of regulation but goalkeeper Amar Dhinsa and

the Horsemen defence held on to preserve the win. “Chile is in first place in the first division so they will be moving up to premier next year,” said Pegasus coach Rob Reed. “They have a skillful and gutsy team and when you look at their results, they’ve already beaten one very good premier team (Delta) in the cup draw so we definitely did not take them lightly. They’re a scrappy team with some skillful players and they kept responding with a push back every time we got a goal.” Pegasus will now watch tonight’s SurreyMetro Ford clash with interest, as the winner of that game will play the Horsemen in the Imperial Cup semifinals next month. “We’re moving on to the next round now and depending on what happens Wednesday, we could be facing Surrey again in the semifinals,” he said. “We have a score to settle after losing to them in the cup final last year so we should have no problem getting up for that game if we play them. It’ll be great if we can have a Surrey derby in the next round but we’ll have to wait and see what happens.” In other Imperial Cup play last weekend, Akal’s run came to an end on the shores of Burrard Inlet as they were eliminated from contention with a 3-0 loss to West Van. Akal goalkeeper Nuno Jesus was outstanding as he made several timely saves to keep the scoreline respectable. Akal defenders Raj Chohan, Surinder Janda, and Harb Chohan also played well for Akal.

Sharks remain Nylund remains a Leaf at heart undefeated ‹ from page 43

The Bayside Sharks continue to be the biggest fish in the Okanagan Springs tier 2, division 1 rugby pond after an impressive 36-5 win over Cowichan at South Surrey Athletic Park Saturday. The win keeps Bayside undefeated through three games this season and, thanks to bonus points for tries scores, the Sharks hold a narrow one-point edge over the Vancouver Rowing Club in the standings. The two sides will square off in a showdown for first place this Saturday (Feb. 25) when the Rowers pay a visit to South Surrey. Game times are 11:30 a.m. for the third division teams, 1 p.m. for the seconds

and 2:30 p.m. for the first division sides. “We’ve earned one more bonus point than them and that’s the difference between first place and second right now,” said Bayside coach Pat Kearney. “Both of us were unsuccessful in qualifying for the premier league in the fall but we both want to be back there next year.” Against Cowichan Saturday the Sharks started slowly before breaking loose for 24 unanswered points in the second half. Spencer Thorpe sparked the Sharks with a pair of tries from his wing position while other majors came from flanker Gurvinder Kalar, scrumhalf Cody Rockson and fullback Corey Wood. Peter Clifford rounded out the Bayside scoring with one try and three conversions.

Blackhawks, the Maple Leafs demanded compensation. The matter was taken to an arbitrator who ruled Chicago had to surrender Jerome Dupont, Ken Yaremchuk and a 1987 fourth-round pick (Joe Sacco) to Toronto. Other teams watched the Nylund saga with interest and when it became clear that neither team was ruined by the transaction, NHL officials became more accepting to free agency. Nylund’s move opened the door for countless other NHL players and today, free agency is a common way of doing business. In fact, free agency has become a force in the sport that television channels dedicate large blocks of airtime to cover the first day of signings every July. Nylund, however, downplays his role in creating the annual summer free agent frenzy. The circumstances were right for him at the time but he no regrets about his days as a Maple Leaf. “I was always happy to be a Leaf and I was proud of that,” he said. “They were my favourite team when I was growing up and I was thrilled to be drafted by them. My heart still bleeds blue even though Toronto hasn’t done so well in recent years. I’m still a Leaf at heart.”

Nylund was 22 years old in the summer of 1986 with just 218 games played. The “double eagle” clause kicked in and he was suddenly free to make his choice of where to play in the NHL — if any other teams knew he was available. “It’s so much different now than it was then,” Nylund recalls. “There was no speculation about potential free agent signings because most of the public didn’t know who was a free agent. Now the names are out in the media long before free agency begins and it’s almost like a shopping list is set up for the general managers. Players, teams and fans all know who is available so there are no surprises.” One of the teams that was aware of Nylund’s abilities and his availability was the Chicago Blackhawks. The Leafs had swept the Blackhawks out of the playoffs in the spring of 1986 and Nylund had played a prominent role in that success. Edmonton and Philadelphia also kicked the tires but Nylund thought Chicago was the team that best suited his talents. The Blackhawks were a physically intimidating team loaded

with tough players such as Steve Larmer, Dave Manson, Al Secord, Troy Murray, Curt Fraser and Doug Wilson. Given the physical nature of his play, Nylund saw Chicago as the best fit for his talents. “I really liked the way Chicago played,” he says. “They were a tough, physical team and they played as a pack. I thought I could slide into that pack and fit in with that style of game. I wasn’t known as a fighter but I didn’t take any crap out there and I think that was the kind of style of player they were looking for.” Of course, being paid in American dollars didn’t hurt either. “The biggest advantage with Chicago’s offer was the difference between the Canadian dollar and the U.S. dollar,” Nylund recalls. “It was something like 42 per cent back then so it was quite significant and I don’t think Toronto was willing to pay it. Contracts were not all in U.S. dollars then so if you were traded from a Canadian team to a U.S. team it was a real bonus while the other way it cost you. That’s why nobody wanted to play in Canada back then.” When Nylund signed with the

Hyundai

2012 Genesis R-Spec is surprisingly fast and agile

W

e already know that Hyundai is not the same company that we knew decades ago. Today’s Hyundai is blessed with amazing qualities and top-notch styling that make even the best Asian brands blush. In fact, Hyundai is one of the fastest growing

automakers in the world; going head-to-head not only with the likes of established American and Japanese players in the volume segment, but encroaching on the luxury elite as well. That means Hyundai has Lexus, Infiniti and even Audi and Mercedes-Benz in its “target list.”

Cars like the Genesis sedan have re-defined the concept of what a large Korean built four-door is all about and with the 2012 R-Spec; packing an enlarged 5.0-litre V8, an eightspeed transmission and sport tuned suspension, Hyundai is aiming high.

One issue that’s continued to afflict Korean cars over the years is rather generic styling. Most Hyundais have traditionally blended into the background, inoffensive but hardly memorable in the looks department and although that’s changing with vehicles like the Veloster, the same “genericar” look is still true of the Genesis. It looks part old Mercedes E/ S-Class, part Infiniti M, especially with that grille and greenhouse. Try to find it an executive parking lot and you’d likely have to resort to pressing the panic button on the key fob, the car doesn’t stand out. It’s not a bad looking car by any means – but it is also not meant to be “different.” The R-Spec aims to give it a bit more personality, via a dark painted headlight surrounds and 19-inch alloy wheels that are also dark, albeit between the spokes, yet for a machine that boasts a larger and more powerful engine, designed to deliver more athletic ability, these changes are rather muted. Inside, ergonomics are pretty sound, an electrically adjustable steering wheel (tilt and telescoping), memory seat functions; good gauge legibility and straightforward primary controls being definite pluses. Although as you’d expect of a car in this segment, the R-Spec is loaded to the gunwales with equipment, it’s not overbearing. Compared to some modern luxury vehicle info/ entertainment systems, which can be very fussy and difficult to use, the R-Spec’s touch screen menu is fairly simple and intuitive.

PERFORMANCE

Shared with the Equus flagship, the 5.0-litre V8 under the hood of the Genesis R-Spec is essentially a larger bore version of the 4.6L Tau engine found in last year’s Genesis V8. It has received a few enhancements

over the 4.6, namely a revised valvetrain, direct injection and of course new pistons, which increase both the compression ratio (to 11.5:1 from 10.4:1) along with power and torque. Rated at 429 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque, there’s no denying the 5.0L Tau motor is a smooth engine; though it really requires revving to make it work; max power doesn’t come in until 6,400 rpm and torque until 5,000. That essentially means you have to drive this car like you stole it, in order to get the best results. The transmission is Hyundai’s own in-house design, yet it’s clear that the mandate with this unit was to deliver decent fuel economy. Punch the gas a little and it feels reluctant to kick down or change up. Even in manual shift mode it’s still a little slow on the uptake, clearly feeling more at home in a luxury cruiser than sport sedan. The car goes where you ask it, cornering rather flat and neutral through the turns, though the feedback from the steering is bit lacking in comparison to say a BMW 5-Series or even a Mercedes E63 AMG. With big 13.6-inch disc brakes at all four corners, stopping simply isn’t an issue with this car, despite its considerable 1,884 kg (4,145 lbs) curb mass. Despite the firmed up suspension and big rims and rubber, when it comes to highway cruising, the RSpec doesn’t disappoint. You could drive this thing from coast to coast and feel almost as relaxed at your destination as you did your departure point. It also feels stable and secure at highway speeds, in a very German kind of way.

THUMBS UP

Build quality, lots of standard features, good all around performance.

THUMBS DOWN

Bland styling, not as invigorating to drive as some European rivals.

THE BOTTOM LINE

Hyundai’s best attempt yet at a true luxury/performance sedan.

With the high gas prices, many Canadians are looking for clever ways to cut the costs of owning and maintaining their cars. Here are some tips on how you can keep your car or truck from draining your wallet:

WRITE A BUDGET

Gather all your auto bills and receipts from the past 12 months, and write them out separating and categorizing your fixed and discretionary expenses. Calculate your total by category, including insurance, gas, maintenance and accessories. If you’re alarmed by how much you’re spending in some categories, make a plan to cut down.

CONSIDER REFINANCING

If you’re worried about how much you’re paying on your car loan, shop around to see if you can find a more competitive interest rate. There are a wide range of options that you can choose from to fit within your overall budget, including different interest rates, payment schedules and amortization periods. If you refinance, consider keeping the amortization as short as you can afford because vehicles are a depreciating asset.

Remember, sometimes less is more. A smaller diesel or hybrid will reduce your carbon footprint, save on gas and retain comparable mileage.

Nissan

2012 Titan provides best of both worlds N issan and Toyota have struggled for years to build a truck to compete with the domestics, but that doesn’t mean they don’t make excellent products. In fact, if you are loyal Japanese product owners, you may prefer the more refined, more car-like feel of the Japanese trucks vs the domestic ones. With the Nissan Titan, you get the best of both as the Titan delivers Japanese-level refinement while offering North American-style “macho” feel. The Titan is actually built in Canton, Mississippi, United States – go figure. Nonetheless, DNA for the Nissan Titan reaches back to the Land of the Rising Sun.

Not only is the Titan built on US soil, it was specifically designed for the North American market and intended as a direct competitor to the F150, RAM and Silverado/Sierra 4X4 pickups. I admire the exterior design of the Titan and believe it holds its own against anything else in the field, including the Toyota Tundra and Honda Ridgeline. My tester was the top-line SL Crew Cab model, which was nicely stocked with comfort and convenience items sans navigation. While I would argue that the Titan’s exterior design is more appealing than anything else in the full-size pickup category, the same can’t be said for its spacious

cabin. The interior real estate is vast and well constructed, but it doesn’t match the opulence found in the F150 King Ranch or the RAM Laramie. Like the domestic rigs, the Titan Crew Cab is powered by a thirsty V8 engine – and let me emphasize the thirst. While not the most powerful crew cab pickup on the market or bestowed with the best tow-rating, the Titan drinks fuel as if it were. Displacing 5.6-litres, the DOHC V8 produces 317 horsepower @ 5,200 rpm, but more impressively, it churns out 385 pound-feet of torque @ 3,400 rpm. Power is harnessed by a fivespeed automatic transmission featuring a tow/haul mode. Many potential customers fear the thought of navigating such large vehicles on congested city streets. The Titan doesn’t feel as large from the driver’s seat as other full-size crew cab pickups I’ve tested. It may be the short nose of the vehicle that contributes to this or the abundance of glass surrounding the driver. Nissan’s Titan SL Crew Cab 4X4 is big, bold and refined; it’s also a highly capable machine that’s a pleasure to drive. While I don’t think it can match Ford and Dodge for upscale environs, it can play equals in the sand box in many other ways while providing its owners with more distinction and exclusivity than those of the Holy Trinity. If driving a “good ole boy” truck isn’t what you’re looking for in the way of a 4X4 luxury-liner pickup, give the Titan a run. It may surprise you.

How you can detect scams An increasingly common scam involves the sale of “cheap auto insurance” to unsuspecting purchasers, tricking them into overage that doesn’t exist. Protect yourself this way:

service. Paying this way is not a practice in the insurance industry. ❚ If you suspect fraudulent activity, contact the police. ❚ If an agent or broker completes the insurance application form on your behalf, check it for accuracy. By signing the application, you are agreeing to the statements made to the insurance company.

❚ Be suspicious if you are asked to pay a referral fee. Licensed agents and brokers do not charge such fees. ❚ Do not consent to paying the premium through a money wiring

Decision to sell land in Surrey astounds MLAs Gentner, Ralston say move is short sighted but Falcon calls their criticisms ‘ridiculous’ Tom Zytaruk

Now staff twitter@tomzytaruk

Guy Gentner

SURREY – The provincial Liberal government’s plan to sell off 15 acres of prime land in Sullivan that could have been home to a new hospital is like selling the family’s gold jewelry to buy groceries, NDP Finance Critic Bruce Ralston charged. The land, at the corner of Highway 10 and 152nd Street, had been earmarked for health care development under the Surrey Official Community Plan’s South Newton Neighbourhood Concept Plan.

the taxpayer? I guess all the forestry on Crown land is costing the taxpayer and will be sold next.” Falcon said the land is costing taxpayers in the form of property tax and other “liabilities.” “It doesn’t generate any revenue,” he said. Ralston, NDP MLA for SurreyWhalley, noted that the Sullivan land sits at the geographic heart of Surrey. “Surely having valuable land centrally located would be good to have for public purposes in the future. This is just for their own short-term purposes. It’s a bit like selling the family gold jewelry to buy groceries.” Falcon disagrees. “That’s a ridiculous analogy,” he said. Falcon noted that since the Sullivan land was earmarked for health care purposes Surrey Memorial Hospital has undergone expansion; with an improved emergency ward to open next year, as well as an eight-storey critical care tower in 2014 – not to mention the hospital’s satellite Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre on 140th Street in Whalley. That, Falcon said, represents the “best value.” “It made more sense to keep all of it in one location,” said Falcon, Liberal MLA for Surrey-Cloverdale. tzytaruk@thenownewspaper.com

A Bangla group performs Wednesday during Surrey’s International Mother Language Day celebrations at Newton Cultural Centre. The day has been marked as the day when all mother languages throughout the world are celebrated. Bangla is an eastern Indo-Aryan language. It is native to the region of eastern South Asia known as Bengal, and in India, Bangla is the second most commonly spoken language, right behind Hindi. (Photo: KEVIN HILL)

It was a project dear to Delta North NDP MLA Guy Gentner, who served as director of the North Delta Public Hospital Society before being elected. In 1990 the society had collected 4,000 signatures from people who wanted a new hospital built in North Delta. The Newton property was later recognized as an ideal site. Gentner, now serving as the public health critic for the NDP, laments the Liberal’s decision to sell off the land. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon says it’s surplus land that is costing taxpayers money. Gentner is aghast at Falcon’s reasoning. “How does an asset, already paid for, owned by government, cost
