Leg traps

‘An accident waiting to happen’ Bylaw in the works after owl found in trap behind Surrey elementary school Amy Reid

Now staff twitter@amyreid87

Lesley Fox, executive director of the Fur-Bearer Defenders, says she’s “just waiting for a kid to get their hand stuck in one of these traps.” An owl was found with its leg stuck in a leghold trap like this in a park behind Kirkbride Elementary school. (Photo: KEVIN HILL) of the trap, and put up posters in the area. After hearing about the trap, Kirkbride Elementary staff told students to stay on the path and not to go into the woods. The owl seems to be doing well, Day said, but it’s not yet known if it will regain enough strength in its leg to hunt again. His wounds from the trap went down to the

bone, she said. After the raccoon was euthanized last fall, Lesley Fox, executive director of the FurBearer Defenders, urged Surrey city council to ban bodygripping traps: Conibear, leghold and snare. Fox would like to see such traps banned on city and private property. Fox said the bodygripping traps

are not only cruel to animals, but are also a public safety concern. “I’m just waiting for a kid to get their hand stuck in one of these traps,” Fox said. “They could be curious and stick their hand in it. It’s just an accident waiting to happen.” Fox said animals are being injured and killed in these traps all the time.

SURREY – For the second time in five months, an animal has been found stuck in a bodygripping trap in Surrey – this time, behind an elementary school. The first incident was last fall, when a raccoon was found in a shed on 155th Street with its front paw clamped in a leghold trap. It had to be euthanized. Then, on Feb. 19, an owl was found with its leg stuck in a leghold trap in a park behind Kirkbride Elementary school. Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society (O.W.L.) took in the owl. It couldn’t fly more than three feet in the air when it was found, due to the weight of the trap. Bev Day, founding director of O.W.L., said it was alarming to find a trap so close to a school. “My worry is the kids and the dogs. Any trap is a concern to us,” Day said. “There are dogs in this area and, of course the kids, too – if they touched it, they could’ve broken a finger.” Day said O.W.L. looked through the area for traps, but didn’t find any more. O.W.L. representatives also called the school to alert them

Anti-Bullying Day

Pink does more than you think ‘There’s something you can do about it, every little bit makes a difference,’ says bullied student Amy Reid

Now staff twitter@amyreid87

SURREY – Surrey’s main RCMP detachment was full of pink on Wednesday, as the City of Surrey, RCMP and CUPE 402 came together to celebrate Anti-Bullying Day and to announce the winners of the student film contest. “I’ve never seen so much pink in the foyer of the detachment before,” RCMP assistant commissioner Fraser MacRae said with a chuckle as he addressed the crowd. “Bullying is a significant issue all across the country, but in Surrey we take it particularly seriously because of the significant youth population,” MacRae said.

Grade 9 Johnston Heights students landed in first place in the junior category of Surrey’s anti-bullying film contest for their film titled “The Liberation Project.” Director Anthony Hope, in front, shows off the award the team received from Surrey Mayor about, they will,” Hope said, adding he considered suicide. “It escalated that far and, unfortunately, people don’t really realize that. You feel alone, you feel isolated, you feel that no one’s there for you.” Hope said bullying can stop when people take a stand against it. “Bullying is happening in schools and a lot of it unfortunately is masked. It is happening. But there’s something you can do about it, every little bit makes a difference.” In the senior category, a team

of students from Guildford Park Secondary won with their film, titled Downfall. Surrey wasn’t the only city recognizing Anti-Bullying Day. Delta’s men and women in blue decided to sport a new colour Wednesday in support of the B.C.wide initiative. Delta police officers also joined representatives from the DOVE (Delta Opposes Violence Everywhere) Committee and the Delta Police Youth Advisory Committee (DPYAC) at all seven

secondary schools to spread information about bullying and to give the Pledge against Bullying. During the lunch break, students at the schools had the opportunity to attend a station where they could dip their hand into pink paint and place their palm on a large white dove, as a pledge against bullying.

escape from a trap. Some municipalities have bylaws banning certain types of traps: A Coquitlam bylaw states that no person may use a leghold trap in the area, and last summer Gibsons banned all “bodyholding traps.” Since 2008, Surrey has had a policy of not using animal traps itself, but there are no bylaw provisions banning the use by the city or anyone else. City staff said Tuesday that a bylaw relating to traps is in the

process of being drafted and will go to council this spring. Fox says she is glad to hear a bylaw is in the works in Surrey, but hopes the city includes some specific recommendations her organization has. While Fox’s request to speak as a delegate to Surrey council again has been declined, she will be submitting written suggestions. She wants to reiterate the specific wording that Fur-Bearer defenders would like to see in the bylaw.

“Our wish is that this bylaw would include city and private property. We want to see something inclusive,” she said. Fox said it’s also important to her that the word “bodygripping” is in the new bylaw. Bodygripping traps include leghold, Conibear and snare traps. “There is an opportunity here for Surrey to be the largest municipality in Canada to ban cruel and dangerous traps,” Fox said. areid@thenownewspaper.com

SURREY – A 28-year-old Surrey man is recovering at Royal Columbian Hospital after being shot in the back Tuesday night, in front of a house in the 8800-block of 131st Street in Whalley. Sgt. Peter Thiessen of the RCMP said the victim was with two other men when he was shot. “Any one of them could have been the target,” Thiessen said. “We know that the victim and two associates have numerous criminal associations in the Surrey area and this incident could be related to any one of those associations. This was a targeted attack and does have all the earmarks of being gang related.” Thiessen said “multiple shooters” ran away from the scene. He wouldn’t say how many, but it was reportedly four. The victim was found on the lawn next to a car that had been running. He had apparently been out on a sundeck and was heading to the car to leave when he was shot. Thiessen said there’s no evidence to suggest this 10 p.m. shooting was related to another 10 p.m. shooting Sunday at a duplex in the 14000-block of Grosvenor Road in Whalley. “At this point we’d be looking at any number of previous incidents,” he said. A 31-year-old man was killed in Sunday’s shooting. He had been living there with an 18-year-old woman. Police hadn’t released his name by press time.

A MESSAGE TO MOTORISTS

SURREY – Teacher support to escalate job action was running strong in the second day of voting, according to a local union official. Surrey Teachers’ Association president Denise Moffatt said on Wednesday that reports filtering into the association’s office indicate that teachers are turning out at the polls en mass. Results of the vote are expected Thursday morning, Moffatt said. Teachers across the province could be in a position to walk off the job as early as Monday. Earlier this week, the Labour Relations Board ruled that teachers can walk off the job for three consecutive days, then one day a week. Moffatt said the situation continues to evolve rapidly and making any definitive statements at this stage would be premature. She said the union would have to give the school district two days notice before taking any further job action. The B.C. Teachers’ Federation launched “teach-only” job action on the first day of school last September. Teachers have been refusing to do supervision and paper work. On Tuesday, Education Minister George

FLAG

Abbott introduced Bill 22, the Education Improvement Act that suspends the teacher’s strike action, sets a “cooling off ” period and appoints a mediator to facilitate bargaining. Denise Moffatt “We hope the teachers’ union will take a constructive approach and respect the cooling off period. “However, if they choose a different path, the legislation includes stiff financial consequences for illegal strike action,” Abbott said in a press release. The act provides for huge fines for each day of strike action, $1.3 million for the union and up to $475 for teachers. If the BCTF and the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association fail to reach an agreement by the beginning of summer, the mediator would issue a report by June 30 with non-binding recommendations. Moffatt dismissed the government’s plans to appoint a mediator. “The mediation process built into that legislation is a sham,” she said. “It’s not a fair process.”

WHITE ROCK – White Rock council balked at a proposed 4.5 per cent tax hike for 2012 and sent the budget back to the drawing board. After poring over the city’s five-year financial plan Monday night, the finance and audit committee instructed staff to trim that figure by roughly half, based on the committee’s recommendations. Mayor Wayne Baldwin, finance committee chair, said Tuesday the proposed tax hike was too high. Baldwin said the committee wants to stick to a tax increase no greater than 2.5 per cent. The projected tax increase of 4.5 per cent would have cost the average single-family homeowner in White Rock an extra $119 on their 2012 tax bill and the average condo owner an additional $50. In making the spending cuts, Baldwin said the committee tried to concentrate on items that would have the least impact on

services to residents. Some of the savings will be made by deferring some city projects and in the area of senior staffing. Baldwin said the city will delay hiring a new manager of leisure services, a position left vacant by former manager Rita Clarkson. Some of the 2012 budget will be spent to cover increasing costs for services, including $157,000 for the RCMP detachment, plus $70,000 for an additional officer slated to start in July. Changes to the city’s garbage and recycling pickup to comply with the GVRD’s 70 per cent diversion target will cost the city an additional $196,400. Baldwin said the revamped budget is slated to come back to the finance and audit committee on March 6. The public will be able to offer their feedback on the budget on March 12 at a meeting at city hall. Council must adopt the city’s five-year financial plan by May 15.

Fire department welcomes its first female officer

Battalion chief says he’d follow Madeline Lamphier into a blaze any day Jessica Kerr

Delta Optimist

DELTA – With International Women’s Day coming up next week, the Delta Fire Department is celebrating a first. Firefighter Madeleine Lamphier recently became the department’s first female officer. “For us it’s an exciting time,” said Chief Dan Copeland. The department’s officers supervise a hall or an apparatus, make sure everyone is doing what they’re supposed to and can be tasked with being an incident commander. Lamphier, who lives in Tsawwassen with her husband, fellow firefighter Kelly Olson, and the couple’s two daughters, Anneli and Lucy, started her firefighting career in Delta in 2001. Firefighting, however, wasn’t initially on her radar when she was thinking of her future, she said. “I always knew that I wanted to do something physical,” Lamphier said,

Madeleine Lamphier recently became the Delta Fire Department’s first female officer. (Photo: CHUNG CHOW) adding she knew she wanted to be a part of something “bigger than myself.” Lamphier said she only started to consider

a career as a firefighter after meeting a female forestry firefighter “who was about half my size.”

Firefighting is a male dominated profession – Lamphier is one of only two females in Delta’s fire department, which includes a complement of 165 members – but she said being a woman has never been an issue. And having grown up as the only girl in the neighbourhood, she was used to it at an early age. Lamphier, who is one of the department’s peer fitness trainers, said she might approach a situation differently than one of her larger, male counterparts but she is just as able to tackle any challenge on the job. Battalion chief Ken Johnson, who has been with Delta Fire Department for more than 30 years, praised Lamphier’s work ethic. “She’s the first one in and the last one out,” he said, adding she passed the officer training program with flying colours. Johnson said when looking at firefighters he bases his assessment on whether he would feel comfortable charging through the front door of a burning building with them, and, without hesitation, he said he would follow Lamphier into any blaze.

SEE MORE PHOTOS ONLINE Now at 19 days old, both baby and mom are thriving, thanks to the yellow liquid, called Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN), which the baby received for just under a week. For now the hospital is using a borrowed machine to make TPN, a process that saves a lot of time. To

make up the very specific formulas needed for premature or very sick babies or other patients who cannot eat can take hours as sometimes tiny amounts of up to 15 different nutrients are mixed together. It takes a few minutes in comparison, said pharmacist Brandi Newby – plus the various nutrients and measurements are more easily doubled and checked for accuracy. With SMH now delivering 4,200 babies a year and more expected as the population of the region continues to boom, SMH needs its

own machine for the new pediatric pharmacy in the Critical Care Tower under construction. As it is, the TPN compounder now allows the SMH pharmacy to also provide formula for Royal Columbian Hospital too. “Of those 4,200 babies born each year (at SMH), about 500 end up in the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit), and about 40 per cent of these – or about 200 – will need TPN,” said Jason Howe of the SMH Foundation. Donations are being accepted for the purchase of the $170,000 machine.

SURREY – When new mom Elly Lee saw nurses hook up her premature baby to an IV with a yellow liquid, she said she was scared. Until she learned her baby, Celine, was being given nutrition intravenously at Surrey Memorial Hospital because she was born too early for her digestive system to work.

NEWS In court

Man pleads guilty in hit-and-run that killed elderly Surrey couple SURREY – Ravinder Singh Binning has pleaded guilty to two counts of dangerous driving causing death, one count of dangerous driving causing bodily harm and fleeing from the scene of a crash in connection with a 2008 hit-and-run that killed an elderly Whalley couple and badly injured their daughter. Binning, 29, entered the guilty pleas on the first day of what was set to be a lengthy trial in Surrey provincial court Tuesday morning. It took members of the victims’ family – who had booked three weeks off work to attend the trial – off guard. Binning will be sentenced on March 13. Dilbag Badh, 61, and his wife Bakshish Badh, 60, were killed on July 12, 2008, in the 8500-block of 128th Street in Newton.

Join us for a free workshop that can help you live the retirement you really want

They were driving home from their daughter Rupi’s engagement party when their BMW was rear-ended at high speed by a white Acura TL that was apparently engaged in a street race with a third car. The victims’ other daughter, Varinder Badh, was badly injured but survived. Badh said her family now hopes the judiciary will give Binning a sentence proportionate to his crimes. Binning was in court last December to plead guilty to impaired driving, obstructing police and fleeing from police in relation to an incident that happened eight months after he crashed into the Badhs. He received a suspended sentence, 16 months probation, an 18-month driving prohibition and a $2,300 fine.

Robocalls scandal betrays all Canadians ViewFrom TheCheap Seats Michael Booth

R

emember the good old days when Canadians could cast a pitying look upon the U.S. as George W. Bush rode electoral shenanigans all the way to the White House? Silly Americans. They trumpet the greatness of their democratic system and all it takes is a few hundred semi-detached paper dots – “hanging chads” was the academic term applied – to turn an electoral loser into a president. Well Canada, it’s time to wipe that smug grin off your face. As the events of the past week revealed, it turns out our time was coming, with crank phone calls playing the role of defective stationary. Less than a year after the Conservative party secured its coveted majority in the 2011 federal election, a series of scandalous revelations have cast not only that win in doubt, but they have undermined the faith of the Canadian people in our democratic process. Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Tories trumpeted their win as a step forward for Canada after a succession of minority governments. It turns out, however, the Conservatives may owe their success to some unscrupulous friends in low places. The allegations of

robocallers directing voters to non-existent polling stations and late night harassing phone calls to known supporters of Tory opponents in key ridings reveals both the arrogance of the party and desperate lengths it will go to in an effort to maintain its grip on power. This is not something that can be brushed off as “dirty tricks” by a political party during the heat of an election campaign. Dirty tricks involve sleazy tactics like writing letters to the editor under an assumed name praising a candidate or slamming a rival; stacking the phone board on radio call-in shows with friendly callers lobbing softball questions at a politician; or

removing one candidate’s lawn signs to reduce his profile in a riding. No, what the Tories did – allegedly – is something far more insidious. If true, they made a concerted effort to cheat Canadians out of one of the greatest things about living in this country – the right to freely cast a ballot in an election without interference or coercion from the government. And that, my friends, is a big step backward from petty vandalism of election signs. Not surprisingly, the Tories have feigned amazement at the allegations and claim the party knew nothing of the mud they were dragging the democratic process through.

Wow, what a great defence – answer the charges with more arrogance. The scandal to date involves live and recorded calls to voters in multiple key ridings in what we now know is at least three provinces. But Harper and his acolytes want us to believe these actions are the work of “Pierre Poutine,” a misguided supporter who acted without direction from the Conservative party. Just how stupid do the politicians think Canadians are? On second thought, scratch that. Each day brings new information on how little the Tories respect the people who faithfully send them to Parliament Hill to act as their representatives. One of the principles of our democratic system is

each citizen has one vote and nobody’s vote is more important – or insignificant – than the next person. The fat cat banker, the pizza delivery guy, the massage parlor worker, the school teacher, the doctor and the down-and-out resident of skid row all have one thing in common: one vote that carries the same weight on election day. And if the mouthbreathing idiot with the NDP sign on his lawn cancels out your obviously far more reasoned electoral choice, so be it. That’s democracy. But not to the Tories. If a couple of phone calls can deter that NDP supporter from casting his ballot, then the value of

one Conservative vote is increased in the riding in question. Harper and Monsieur Poutine were delighted to secure a majority of seats in the House of Commons last spring despite securing the support of just over 40 per cent of all Canadians who cast ballots. That majority is just 11 seats in the House and now Canadians have good reason to examine the margins of victory in some of the key seats the Tories won at the expense of their rivals. This is a scandal that goes beyond mere smear election tactics or cooking the financial books in the campaign office. It is an egregious betrayal of Canadians and deserves far more attention than a mere promise of, “We’ll look into it and get back to you” from Harper and his cronies in the pinstriped suits. The situation demands the full weight of a parliamentary inquiry and if proven true, the Governor General must use his power and dissolve Parliament and call yet another federal election. Canadians want another election as much as a kid wants new socks and underwear from Santa Claus, but for the sake of democracy, it may be the only remedy for the stain that has appeared on that institution in the months following the last federal vote.

Do you have somebody you would like to thank? Or maybe something you want to get off your chest? Send your rose or rotten tomato to edit@thenownewspaper.com. Please keep submissions under 50 words. Watch for Roses and Rotten Tomatoes in the Thursday issue of the now

Tomatoes to whomever is behind those lights along 72nd Avenue and King George Boulevard that have been lit up each and every night since early early December. What on earth is being celebrated in February? This is such a waste of our tax dollars. Take them down! And when Christmas comes again later this year, please put up the pretty blue-purple lights that were orginally there.

A truck load of rotten tomatoes delivered to the doorsteps of those that are responsible for turning off the Christmas lights but have yet to do so. It is now almost two months past due. Every night they are glowing brightly in Fleetwood, Whalley, Guildford and Newton. With the food bank, the homeless, and schools all crying for money, let us get these lights turned off and pass the savings along.

Anonymous roses to a special man for achieving and maintaining sobriety. Your hard work and determination means the world to me and your children and we appreciate everything you have done for our family. Keep it up honey, we love you! Forever yours, your LLP. xoxo

A big heap of rotten tomatoes to dog owners who do not pick up their doggie’s poop. You find it everywhere – on sidewalks, boulevards and on gravel pathways. Please people, have some manners! Also, a dump truck of the most rotten tomatoes to

dog owners who walk their dogs without having them on leashes! The dogs run over to us and you don’t call them, leash them or control them! Even if they are “friendly” (how often have I heard that one), we don’t know that in advance and don’t appreciate the licking and sniffing. Control your dogs! Thanks! An apartment building full of rotting tomatoes to the three teen girls who pushed me down and called me names. How would you feel if someone did that to your grandmother? Grow up – you are not above the law! Roses to the kind man who stopped and helped a distraught woman push her broken car off of 64th Avenue.

Don’t bully teachers The Editor, Re: “Teachers taking strike vote,” the Now, Feb. 28. This is an open letter to B.C. Education Minister George Abbott: You are in violation of some of the basic rules we reinforce in our classrooms: 1. Compromise. A compromise is when both sides give a little and gain a little. We teach our students to make concessions. We wish we could use your government’s negotiations with the teachers as an example. 2. Play fair. An agreement was reached by two sides in good faith and you cannot change the rules of the game mid-way. 3. Respect others. We can have different opinions but still treat each other with respect and agree to disagree. Stop saying teachers need to go back to work! We never stopped working! 4. Apologize. Say sorry when you make a mistake or when you have made an error in judgment. For your information, there are three parts to an apology. First, apologize when you make a mistake. Next,

admit to what you did wrong. Finally, explain what you are going to do to rectify the situation. 5. Prioritize. Education is important. What good is a government that doesn’t invest in the next generation? We are dismayed by your lack of respect toward the teachers of this province. In our classrooms, we compose class rules in consultation with our students. Your government would do well to follow our example. During anti-bullying day on Wednesday, the hardworking, caring teachers of this province were busy teaching their classes about the characteristics of bullying. We find it alarming that our own government is exhibiting the intimidation tactics used by bullies to impose legislation on British Columbia’s teachers. We will end off with another lesson we teach daily in our classrooms – it is honourable to admit to your mistakes and to work toward rectifying them. Gurjit Pattar, Surrey

Shred’s not dead (in Whalley, at least) TheBuzz

Guitarist Michael James (right), with Mortal Soil bandmate Tek Leang on bass, prepares for the inaugural Shred Saturdays event March 3 at Binghi’s Café in Whalley. (Photo: GORD GOBLE)

Tom Zillich Arts & Life Editor

D

epending on your viewpoint, the act of shredding is “technically and rhythmically hammering out amazing and lightning-fast solos on a guitar.” Another definition, also courtesy of urbandictionary.com: “To play distorted electric lead guitar in a manner which is, at once, so extremely cogent and rapid that listener experiences the sensation that the production of the sound should be impossible or nearly impossible.” One more: “A guitar playing style or technique that was abandoned in the late 1980s.” Truth is, shredding hasn’t been totally abandoned at all, and is the focus of a new series of afternoon concerts at a small stage in North Surrey. “Shred Saturdays” starts this weekend (March 3) at Binghi’s Café, the former Fireside space near Gateway Skytrain (13593 King George Blvd.), and will continue there on the first Saturday of every month — April 7, May 5 and June 2, from 2 to 5 p.m. Jackie Novik, mother of a young guitarist named Michael James, came up with the idea for the series after futile attempts to find gigs for the teen’s band, Mortal Soil. There aren’t many opportunities for young bands to play live in Surrey, Novik said. At open-mic gatherings held at coffee houses, sometimes there’s just not enough room on stage for a full band and, in many cases, metal and hard rock is shunned, she added. “I want to bring those kids out of basements and bedrooms to give them a chance to play in front of an audience,” said Novik, who lives in North Surrey. At the all-ages Shred Saturdays shows, performers must be 18 or under. The events

scattered throughout the Lower Mainland, (and) making them aware of Shred Saturdays at Binghi’s Café is going to be difficult,” said Novik. A special guest Saturday will be Sebastian Chamney, winner of a “shred-off ” contest at the Vancouver Guitar Show last fall. Series sponsors are needed, and Novik welcomes participants to contact her via email, jnovik@shaw.ca.

GUITAR FEST AT KWANTLEN

Meanwhile, the date of Saturday, Feb. 25 has been picked (get it?) for this year’s Fraser Valley Acoustic Guitar Festival, at the Langley campus of Kwantlen Poly-U. Four acclaimed guitarists will be on stage for the 7:30 p.m. gig, including Don Alder, Daniel Bolshoy, Celso Machado and David Sinclair — more reason to cheer for the 15-year festival, a featured event of the school’s guitar program. For fest info, visit kwantlen.ca/guitar.

TILLER’S FOLLY AT BLUE FROG

will be a place for an open mic/jam, a shred contest and performances by Mortal Soil (finalists at last year’s PNE Star Showdown contest) and guests. For the $5 entry fee, names go into a draw for concert tickets (Mastadon and Opeth, May 1), with

proceeds going to Re-Tool Jamaica (to assist trade school grads there). If 30 young shredders are in the house Saturday, Novik would be thrilled — and not just guitarists are welcome to shred. “There are amazing guitar players

Long-established folk/roots band Tiller’s Folly is back with Go the Road, an allacoustic album that adds to the eight they’ve already recorded. A pair of concerts March 29-30 at White Rock’s Blue Frog studio/hall will see the band film and record a new DVD of songs with the help of videographer Gene Greenwood and studio engineer Ron Cote.

Julia Albert, 12, plays A Little Princess (as the character Sara Crewe), in a production staged by Surrey Youth Theatre Company (SYTCO) at Surrey Arts Centre’s studio theatre this weekend (Friday to Sunday, March 2-4). The Susan Pendletondirected story, written in 1887 and later reworked for the stage, involves a battle between a smart, creative girl (the daughter of a wealthy soldier from India) and the cruel headmistress of a boarding school in Victorian-era London. For show info and tickets ($16.75), call 604-501-5566 or visit tickets.surrey.ca.

POWER LINE TREE PRUNING AND HAZARD TREE REMOVALS SOUTH SURREY When: March 1, 2012 to July 20, 2012 Time: 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Trees are a significant cause of power interruptions. Contact between trees and power lines can also create a severe danger.

For the record

Over the next few months we will be pruning and removing trees in the South Surrey area.

A review of the play Circle Mirror Transformation published in the Now last week (“‘Circle Mirror’ doesn’t shine,’ page 23, Feb. 23, 2012) included incorrect information. The Arts Club Theatre Company production currently at Surrey Arts Centre (until March 3) is not identical to the one staged at the company’s Granville Island stage last fall. According

to producers of the play, the show was revamped following those autumn dates: “The cast went into more rehearsals, the intermission was taken out and the whole show was tightened up considerably.

ARTS & LIFE Event on May 4-6

People from around B.C. will fill Surrey with song for three days in May. For the first time in its 35-year history, the Chorfest event hosted by BC Choral Federation is coming here for rehearsals, workshops and, on Sunday, May 6, an afternoon concert. Organizers say they’re thrilled to bring the festival to Surrey. “We have been hoping to host a Fraser Valley Chorfest for some time, and this year provided the perfect combination Liana Savard of host choirs and the right venue to make this happen,” said Willi Zwozdesky, executive director of BC Choral Federation. Chorfest is geared toward singers who are in community choirs, or wish to join one. “Anyone can register to participate, whether they’re in a choir or not,” said Michelle Frilund, an organizer of the event, which typically attracts around 200 singers. Frilund is a longtime member of Coquitlam-based Coastal Sound Adult Choir, which is sharing work to organize Chorfest 2012 with members of Vancouver Orpheus Male Voice Choir.

Most festival events will be held at Pacific Academy and Chandos Pattison Auditorium, with a banquet planned for the Sheraton hotel in Guildford. “It’s great that the festival can happen all at one campus,” Frilund said. “At the auditorium (at Pacific Academy), Coastal Sound has done what we call ‘family of choirs’ concerts, so we know it’s a good venue for this.” The “Sweet ‘n’ Hot” theme of Chorfest this year means registrants will learn and sing romantic and hot jazz standards from the 1920s to 1950s — “My Funny Valentine,” “Mood Indigo,” “Come Rain, Come Shine” and “Someone to Watch Over Me” among them. Participants must learn songs in advance from a CD sent out as part of the registration package. The “regular rate” registration fee for Chorfest is $174; an early-bird rate of $151 is offered until March 15. General-admission tickets to the May 6 concert are $20 (free for kids under age 12). For festival details, visit www.chorfest2012.org or call BC Choral Federation, 604-733-9687. Singers at Chorfest will work with Dennis Coleman, an acclaimed conductor from Seattle, and Réjean Marois, with the jazz program at Capilano University. “We are very fortunate to have two reputed conductors coming to work with our singers,” said Liana Savard, music director of Vancouver Orpheus Male Voice Choir. “We would be hard-pressed to find better talent than this to offer to our Chorfest singers.”

t’s a dark Friday night, and it’s pouring rain, but I can’t wait to be out in it. The reason is clear, as I pull my car in front of the ticket office on Cypress Mountain. I watch as a few dozen brave souls anxiously wait for their snowshoeing experience to begin. It’s a goal I’ve had in the back of my mind for many years, mainly because it’s a sport that is low-risk in injuries and has a high return for burning calories (approximately 600 per hour). Snowshoeing appeals to me because it seems like a great way to see the sights on the mountain — and walk on some awesome powder. Our guide, Mark Waldbillig, helps ease us into our trek with some fun games like “Simon Says” in the snow (where the winner getting to put their wet clothing next to the fire after our trek). It was evident from the start, as Waldbillig led the group up the mountain, that snowshoeing and his appreciation for the mountain is in his blood. As we walked, he pointed out several different plants and trees to us, as well as a quick education on preparedness when hiking on the mountain.

We followed Waldbillig up the mountain using the top part of our snowshoe to dig into the incline. Gone are the days where long, wooden snowshoes are used. Instead, it has been replaced with lightweight aluminum snowshoes that are nimble and easy to trek along the trail. Many snowshoe enthusiasts can hike the trails on their own during the day. However, at night, it is imperative that a trained professional accompanies you (to ensure you don’t get lost). One of the highlights of the snowshoeing trek was when we had to slide down a part of the mountain to reach another trail. It brought out the kid in us all. Many people in our group (myself included) were having so much fun, we were oblivious to the slushy rain pelting us during our hike. What I discovered about snowshoeing is that it’s a sport easy to learn, and fun to do in a group. The average age in our group of 12 ranged from early 20s all the way up to a couple in their 60s, proving it’s a great activity for any age. After approximately 45 minutes, we reached our destination: Hollyburn Lodge, which was built in 1926. Waiting for our group inside was hot apple cider, hot chocolate and a chocolate fondue. It was a great way to cap off our snowshoeing experience and relax for a bit, before making our descent down the mountain. Our bellies still warm from beverages and fondue, I was a dismayed it was over. Looking at the stars above and the

oney money money. Sing that tune (theme song for celebrity apprentice). Or even,“Money Makes the World Go Around” (from Cabaret). We need a song to carry us through these critical financial crunch times, for sure. The arts are really feeling the pinch (as usual), and even the newly announced provincial budget doesn’t hold out much of a life raft. The Alliance for Arts and Culture has a few comments about the budget: “The B.C. government is making a long-term commitment to keep our province dead last in per-capita arts funding” said Rob Gloor, executive director. A year or two ago, Ballet BC was in a big financial crunch. Through some restructuring and fundraising efforts, they are getting back on track and offering contemporary ballet to the masses. That’s us. Ballet, even contemporary style, may not be your thing. I get it. So why support a ballet company? Because. Here you can make your own list of reasons. You either believe in a healthy cultural sector or you don’t. Ballet BC’s new touring production is coming to Surrey Arts Centre on March 13. Walking Mad and Other Works premiered in Vancouver and will make a one-night stand in Surrey. Based on the premise that our greatest blessings come to us by way of madness, Ballet BC brings Johan Inger’s

breathtaking choreography to life with dynamic movement, creativity, intelligence, artistry and passion. Also on the program are two new dances, one choreographed by Ballet BC’s artistic director Emily Molnar and the other by Aszure Barton, one of Canada’s leading choreographers. Collectively, the three works celebrate the resurgence of Ballet BC as a hotbed for the research, creation and performance of new dances. OK, so that last bit was directly from a press release — but I believe. Here is your opportunity to show your support for the arts in Surrey. Tickets range from $36 to $25, and fall in that “affordable” class. Contact the box office at 604-501-5566. It’s a Tuesday night, but sometimes we just have to make sacrifices for the arts. Yay for live theatre. You can “like” it on Facebook at Surrey Arts Centre. Is the cost of tickets holding you back from attending live theatre? White Rock Players’ Club has announced a new discount policy for non-profit youth service organizations. Groups of 10 or more, including supervisors or caregivers, will be given a 50-per-cent discount. Wow. Just think of the federal government giving us a 50-per-cent reduction in our taxes. Remember, ticket sales keep the theatre alive. WRPC is keen to keep the art alive, and growing audiences are essential. Take advantage of the offer, now in effect for all WRPC productions; some restrictions apply. Organizers should contact Coast Capital Playhouse box office (1 to 5 p.m., Tuesday to Saturday) to confirm eligibility and availability. Call 604-536-7535 or, for details, visit www.whiterockplayers.ca.

Payback brought a special bonus for the Tamanawis Wildcats in the quarter-final round of the Fraser Valley senior boys AAA basketball championships Monday night. Ten days after home court advantage failed them in a loss to the White Rock Christian Academy Warriors in the Southwest Zone final, the Wildcats returned the favour. Tamanawis knocked off the Warriors 60-51 on the WRCA court and became the first Surrey team to secure a provincial championship berth. “The biggest difference for us was a higher level of focus plus having some of our bumps and bruises healed up,” said Tamanawis coach Surinder Grewal. “In the second half of the zone final it was almost like we ran out of steam. We had a short bench and by the end we just didn’t have the legs. This time around we had healthy bodies and a full bench and that helped us stay focused right to the end. “Of course we really wanted it a lot more, too. They had beaten us in our gym and we wanted to get even for that by beating them on their home court. That was obviously a factor in this game as well.” The two games unfolded in similar fashion for the first half as Tamanawis started fast and built up an impressive 14-point lead early in the third quarter. In the zone final White Rock stormed back from 17 points down to pull out the win but that was not to be in the rematch. The Warriors attempted to start a rally in the third quarter with a pair of successful threes to cut the Wildcats lead to eight points. Tamanawis responded to the challenge in kind as Manny Dulay nailed a pair of treys to restore the Wildcat advantage to 14 points. The shots were a dagger to the Warriors’ hopes of making a comeback and Tamanawis was content to match them bucket for bucket the rest of the way.

Dulay led the Wildcats with 20 points, nine assists and five rebounds while Sukjot Bains chipped in with 16 points and five boards. Tamanawis now advances to the semifinal round of the Valley tournament where they will take on Pitt Meadows Friday night at the Langley Events Centre (6 p.m. start). The Fraser Valley tournament started with a bang on Feb. 22 as Doomsday Wednesday pared the 32team bracket down to 16 teams. The elimination games that day brought a quick end to the hoops season for Clayton Heights, Sullivan Heights, Elgin Park, L.A. Matheson, Lord Tweedsmuir, Kwantlen Park, Queen Elizabeth, North Surrey and Seaquam. White Rock Christian, Fleetwood Park, Tamanawis, Princess Margaret, North Delta and Enver Creek all survived to play in Friday’s round of 16. When play resumed, Tamanawis beat Fleetwood Park 62-49 while WRCA dispatched Maple Ridge 69-58 to set up another showdown between the Wildcats and Warriors in Monday’s quarter-finals. In other games, North Delta topped Enver Creek 65-52 in Langley while Princess Margaret fell 73-64 to W.J. Mouat in Coquitlam. While Tamanawis was knocking off White Rock Christian in quarter-final play, the North Delta Huskies were tripped up 78-64 by Walnut Grove. The Warriors and the Huskies remain alive in the hunt for a provincial berth. White Rock plays Princess Margaret Thursday night at the Langley Events Centre while North Delta takes on South Delta. Elsewhere Monday, Fleetwood Park was eliminated with a 60-57 loss to Maple Ridge in elimination play while Enver Creek (66-54 over Heritage Woods) and Princess Margaret (70-55 over Abbotsford Collegiate) both kept their seasons alive with crucial wins. Enver Creek will try to extend their season with a win against Yale in Thursday’s elimination round in Langley.

In what has become an annual rite of spring, the Holy Cross Crusaders are heading to Kamloops in the first week of March. For the sixth consecutive year, the Crusaders have advanced to the B.C. AA Senior Girls Basketball Championships, which tip off March 7 in the Interior city. The Crusaders holds down the third seed in the provincial draw after downing Catholic school rival Archbishop Carney Stars 52-33 in the Fraser Valley championship final last Saturday at Holy Cross. The 21-point Crusaders win was an improvement on the Crusaders’ 13-point margin of victory over the Stars in the B.C. Catholics final last month. “When we won in the semifinals we knew for sure we were going to the B.C.s but we still wanted to win the final,” said Holy Cross coach Steve Beauchamp. “We wanted to be the Fraser Valley champions, plus it helps us for the provincials because it gives us a better draw. Beating Carney again was also important because even though we beat them in the final of the Catholics, they were missing a key player for that game. This time

they had everybody and were ready to go but our girls managed to get the job done.” Holy Cross opened the Fraser Valleys with a lopsided quarter-final win over Heritage Park followed by an 82-37 romp past G.W. Graham in the semifinal round. The Valley finale featured a rematch between the two Catholic tournament finalists and while both teams showed the strains of playing under pressure early, Holy Cross guard Michelle Bos was in full flight right from the opening tip off. Bos jumpedstarted the Crusader attack with 28 points in the game en route to earning MVP honours. “Michelle had a fantastic final game,” Beauchamp said. “Early on in the first half when we were kind of struggling, at one point she had scored 18 of our first 25 points. She certainly rose to the occasion. We tend to look for mismatches against the teams we play and the girl they had on Michelle was smaller than her so we took advantage of that. She also hit a couple of threes in the first quarter that allowed our girls to settle down and focus on the game.” Rachael Beauchamp collected 14 points in the game and was selected to the tourney’s first all-star team along with teammate Amy Sprangers. Michelle Zacharuk was named to the second all-star team.

Pegasus solidifies top spot Michael Booth

Now staff twitter@surreynowsports

A timely win coupled with a rival’s loss has allowed ICST Pegasus to secure some breathing room atop the Vancouver Metro Soccer League’s premier standings. The Horsemen helped themselves with a solid 3-1 win over Westside in Vancouver Saturday while fellow contender West Van was upended 1-0 by NorVan. Pegasus now enjoys a four-point cushion over West Van although the North Shore side has played one less game. With a maximum of three points available for each win, Pegasus coach Rob Reed said his club knows what they have to do. “There’s no margin for error if we want the league title,” he said. “The math is pretty simple for us right now: we have to keep on winning. At halftime one of the West Van guys came by the park and we found out they had lost their game with NorVan so that was a real shot in the arm for us. That was a big

boost for us because now as long as we win our last two games, West Van can’t catch us. Our fate is in our own hands as they say.” Reynold Stewart enjoyed a magical day in Vancouver, scoring all three Pegasus goals in the romp over Westside. Stewart opened the scoring in the 30th minute and then provided the Horsemen with some insurance by tallying twice in the final 45 minutes to complete the hat trick. In other VMSL premier action, the Delta Hurricanes added some extra misery to an already miserable night for the Surrey United Firefighters by thumping the defending league champs 3-0 at John Oliver Park Tuesday night. Harpreet Khakh, Josh Northey and Daniel Badesha each scored once to power the Hurricanes to the win. Meanwhile in VMSL Imperial Cup action last week, Surrey United posted a 2-0 win over the Metro Ford Wolves on Feb. 22. The two-time defending cup champs will now take on archrival ICST Pegasus in semifinal play March 23 in a rematch of the 2011 Imperial Cup final.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Continue to rest, lie low. Contemplate: how have you come here, and where are you going? It’s a little too early to make plans, as many factors, and your own certainty, will “show up missing” over the next few weeks – significant revisions will arise in April. Complete projects and duties now, rather than starting anything new. What seems a dull Sunday might transform, this night or Tuesday, into romance or a pleasure foray. Your money luck improves over the next four weeks. Tackle growing chores midweek. Relationships have a strong message for you Thursday night onward. Taurus April 20-May 20: You’ve felt a bit put-upon, that luck wasn’t on your side, these last few weeks. That changes, Monday onward. Your gracefulness and subtle magnetism return; your popularity surges upward, puzzlement will dissolve. Still, don’t start new projects or new romances before April. You often judge yourself by your possessions. That will cause you much wondering and bemusement in May/June – but these months of indecision will be only part of a longer phase of good money/possessions luck, from April to July, which in turn kicks off a hugely lucky year of money, lasting to mid-2013.) Gemini May 21-June 20: The accent continues on ambition, reputation, mingling with “big shots” – considering your poor luck of the last few years, take a defensive rather than daring stance here. Strictly avoid starting ambitious new projects before April 4. (A slowdown starts soon, technically March 12. This will bring back a former hope, or “light lover” – but that’s next week onward.) You’ve been more gregarious the last few weeks: now, through March, socializing mingles with “quiet joys.” BTW, those years of bad luck end in June; bad karma ends in late August. Then a year of splendid fortune begins.

Cancer June21-July22:Yourmellow,understanding mood continues. Relationships are changing (20082023). This month is an excellent time to figure out why – why they’ve changed, what you can do, the meaning of it all. Your vision and thoughts are broader and more acute than usual. You’ll be surprised/ gratified by the nuggets of affection and optimism you uncover. (That’s partly because, now to April 3, your popularity rises.) Chase money – carefully – Sunday eve to Tuesday. Travel, talk, messages fill midweek: say heartfelt, loving things. Settle into home Friday/ Saturday. Finish, don’t start, projects. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The mysteries continue. But you’ll solve a lot of them Sunday eve to Tuesday, when your energy and alertness return. (Passivity promotes mystery; action solves it.) And Tuesday night to Thursday, when money luck (combined with action) can reveal the forces and currents underlying many aspects of your life, and reveal a profitable, satisfying road ahead. Take action! But stop Thursday; sit back, relax, have a coffee and communicate Friday/ Saturday. All week, start nothing that will demand further (supportive) efforts after this week. E.g., buy stocks, don’t start a business. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Relationships dominate all month, but this week the aces fall in your lap. Take advantage of your position, luck and strength, especially Wednesday – but keep in mind the need to please another, to co-operate and work as a team. Strictly avoid starting any new projects before April 4; finish instead. (A period of slowdowns, mistakes and indecision technically begin March 12.) You’re hopeful Sunday morning, but to little avail. Retreat this p.m. through Tuesday eve: meditate, finish chores, rest. Your energy and charisma surge midweek. Examine money (buy nothing) Friday/Saturday.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Tackle chores. Protect health; eat and dress sensibly. Though March is always a month of drudgery for you, it will be lightened this time by a relationship. A friend could be all talk, or physically intimate – the former is a lot safer. (You aren’t really in a good mating phase before June, not in an excellent one until September – before this, sex is great, but not a basis for life-mating.) Your popularity and optimism rise Sunday eve to Tuesday – be happy! But retreat to rest, contemplate and exercise charity midweek. Your energy and charisma rise Friday on. Start nothing new, big. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: You’re on a wee winning streak – take risks, be adventurous. But don’t start any large projects (ones that will demand your participation later in March). Sunday morning’s mellow but not successful – leave love for the moment. Be ambitious Sunday eve to Tuesday pre-dawn – the path is smooth. An ally will either fight you or promote you. Wishes come true Tuesday night to Thursday: optimism, social delights and entertainment arrive. A love interest could climax, become an affair. But retreat, rest and contemplate Friday/Saturday. Plan nothing big, start nothing big this week. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The accent lies on home, family, property, security, retirement, gardening, nutrition, stomach and soul. Diving into any of these will give you a feeling of satisfaction – but finish rather than begin projects, in these or any zones. A romantic glance, a friendly but rushed conversation, could spark an affectionate interlude, but any relationship begun now will inherit indecision. (And an old flame might return later in March, complicating everything.) These are just a “stirring” – soon, April onward (into 2013) a serious sweet bond will arise. Good career luck midweek.

March 4 - 10, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Travel, communicate, perform errands, do paperwork – do these quickly, now, as a major slow-down hits this area next week, which will leave you “out of the loop,” planning-wise and data-wise, to April 4. (Speaking of planning, make none now; wait until April, after the situation has changed.) Life’s depths, sexual urges and financial actions fill Sunday eve to Tuesday. A mellow, wise mood flows Tuesday night to Thursday: dive into culture, international affairs, intellectual pursuits, and love. Luck accompanies you Sunday eve to Thursday, so act. A romantic mood creeps in. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Chase money – but don’t start any large projects (especially in monetary, friendship or communication zones) before April 4. Your home becomes a more affectionate place in March. You’ll be talking, mailing, travelling all month, too, but make your major contacts now, not later. Schedule meetings for April, not March. Relationships bless you Sunday eve to Tuesday: a property question might arise. Delve into intimacy, big finance, research or health problems Tuesday night to Thursday – you might make a major, lucky investment. Wisdom, but not much luck, Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your energy, charisma and clout ride a peak wave – but the results of your actions might not be what you want, if you begin projects now (or anytime before April 4). Finish things, instead. You might meet a splendid friend soon (around March 13, but it could occur anytime March 5 onward). Tackle chores, protect your health, Sunday eve to Tuesday.Tuesday night to Thursday brings great relationships, exciting meetings and new opportunities (but remember my advice about new projects). (You’ll see these people again mid-next week.) Take care with money, intimacy Friday/Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca

Leg traps

‘An accident waiting to happen’ Bylaw in the works after owl found in trap behind Surrey elementary school Amy Reid

Now staff twitter@amyreid87

Lesley Fox, executive director of the Fur-Bearer Defenders, says she’s “just waiting for a kid to get their hand stuck in one of these traps.” An owl was found with its leg stuck in a leghold trap like this in a park behind Kirkbride Elementary school. (Photo: KEVIN HILL) of the trap, and put up posters in the area. After hearing about the trap, Kirkbride Elementary staff told students to stay on the path and not to go into the woods. The owl seems to be doing well, Day said, but it’s not yet known if it will regain enough strength in its leg to hunt again. His wounds from the trap went down to the

bone, she said. After the raccoon was euthanized last fall, Lesley Fox, executive director of the FurBearer Defenders, urged Surrey city council to ban bodygripping traps: Conibear, leghold and snare. Fox would like to see such traps banned on city and private property. Fox said the bodygripping traps

are not only cruel to animals, but are also a public safety concern. “I’m just waiting for a kid to get their hand stuck in one of these traps,” Fox said. “They could be curious and stick their hand in it. It’s just an accident waiting to happen.” Fox said animals are being injured and killed in these traps all the time.

SURREY – For the second time in five months, an animal has been found stuck in a bodygripping trap in Surrey – this time, behind an elementary school. The first incident was last fall, when a raccoon was found in a shed on 155th Street with its front paw clamped in a leghold trap. It had to be euthanized. Then, on Feb. 19, an owl was found with its leg stuck in a leghold trap in a park behind Kirkbride Elementary school. Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society (O.W.L.) took in the owl. It couldn’t fly more than three feet in the air when it was found, due to the weight of the trap. Bev Day, founding director of O.W.L., said it was alarming to find a trap so close to a school. “My worry is the kids and the dogs. Any trap is a concern to us,” Day said. “There are dogs in this area and, of course the kids, too – if they touched it, they could’ve broken a finger.” Day said O.W.L. looked through the area for traps, but didn’t find any more. O.W.L. representatives also called the school to alert them
