White Rock

Market ready to ‘connect’ Amy Reid

White Rock Coun. Helen Fathers says the White Rock Farmers’ Market is about connecting with the community. This year’s market starts on May 27. (Photo: FILE)

WHITE ROCK – The White Rock Farmers’ Market is gearing up for another fun-filled season beginning May 27. The market, which is in its 13th season this year, features fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods, garden products, specialty food items such as organic cheese and local seafood, as well as crafts. Coun. Helen Fathers, market manager, said many special events have been planned this year, hoping to make the market a destination for residents of White Rock and beyond. “When you come to the market, it’s not just about selling fruits and vegetables, it’s about connecting with the community at large,” Fathers said. “This year we’re hoping to attract lots of people by offering a large span of activities.” The events include a Doggy Day on July 15, which includes a dog show and new this year are dog obedience classes. Also new this year is a free children’s cooking class on July 8. The market will teach children aged five to 12 about “farm to table eating,” Fathers said.

“We will walk through the market, pick out fruits and veggies, decide what to make and make it right there onsite,” she said. The market will be holding an event for Canada Day and, as always, the market will be offering free space to nonprofit groups. In honour of Mary Hartwell, a former market director who passed away from cancer last year, the market has set up a scholarship fund. There is $2,500 to give away, $1,100 of which was collected at Hartwell’s funeral and the rest is by donation from the market. “The plan is to donate the money to somebody going to school for food and nutrition, farming, something like that. We wanted to do this to remember Marty,” Fathers said. Fathers said the market is proud to be almost entirely self-sufficient. “Only about two per cent of our total budget comes from grants,” she said. The market is waiting to hear back on a grant it’s applied for from Vancity Credit Union, to fund a special events coordinator. But either way, Fathers said there will be lots to see and do at this year’s White Rock Farmers’ Market. The market will be held every Sunday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. between May 27 and Oct. 7 next to the Whaling Wall, between Johnston Road and 15154 Russell Ave., Miramar Village Plaza.

Nature centre has ‘new life’

Renovations ‘bring nature inside’ historic building in Surrey Amy Reid

Now staff twitter@amyreid87

SURREY – The birthplace of reforestation in B.C. got a facelift recently. A building on the site of the Surrey Nature Centre was the first place in B.C. to grow seedlings to replace trees that had been logged throughout the province. The tree seedling nursery operated from the 1930s to 1999. The building has been used for programming by the Surrey Nature Centre since 2008, but was largely unfinished until now, said Colleen Gillespie, environmental program co-ordinator for the City of Surrey. “The building is such an important part of the story here, producing seedlings, it had such an impact on B.C.” Gillespie said. She said it was important to repurpose the old building because of the historical significance behind it. “To reuse it creatively was important.”

The building has been expanded from 1,944 square feet to 4,500, which took the space from two program rooms to four. Many school programs are taught there. “The building is virtually unrecognizable,” Gillespie said of the upgrades. “It looks like a brand new building.” The renovations included large windows and a skylight, allowing light to freely flow into the rooms. Gillespie said the renovations bring “nature inside the building.” SEE MORE PHOTOS ONLINE She added that because the majority of programming at the Surrey Nature Centre focuses on the forest and wildlife, it’s nice to be able to sit in a room that allows you to look right out at nature. “The focus here is really on the outdoor history and we didn’t want the building to compete with that,” she said. “It’s been exciting to take this historic building and give it new life.” See the new building for yourself at 14255 96th Ave. Currently, the only way to access the Surrey Nature Centre is from 96th Avenue.

The Now

Briefly

City honours those killed on the job WHITE ROCK – The public is invited to city hall tomorrow morning to take part in the Worker’s Day of Mourning ceremony. The event is to honour those who have died or were injured at work and to renew the city’s commitment to improving health and safety in the workplace. “More than a thousand workers are killed on the job each year in Canada, many of which are young or new workers,” said Mayor Wayne Baldwin, who will speak at the ceremony. “I hope the community will join us at City Hall on April 27 as we reflect on the past and focus our attention on what we can do to increase health and safety in the workplace.” The event is organized by the City of White Rock and CUPE Local 402-01. “The number of people killed on the job is troubling,” said Mike Guraliuk, chairperson of the local. “This ceremony is to advocate health and safety in the workplace while remembering past injuries and fatalities.” The ceremony will start at 8 a.m.

Nobody hurt after train cars derail in Surrey After what may have been an operator error, a few cars from a Southern Railway train derailed in Surrey Monday near Scott Road at Larson Road. At 7:30 p.m. on Monday, police received word that some train cars had come off the track. “It tied up traffic overnight. The significant thing was that it blocked Scott Road down in the flats,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Drew Grainger. “Nobody was injured and there were no hazardous materials,” he added.

Woman facing dog-theft related charges urges city to crack down on dog chaining Surrey is drafting anti-chaining bylaw Amy Reid

Now staff twitter@amyreid87

SURREY – A woman facing 36 dog-theft related charges urged Surrey city council to get strict on dog cruelty Monday night. Janet Olson, 58, and two other women want city council to enact a bylaw banning the chaining, tethering and cruel confining of dogs. Olson is the founder and director of A Better Life Dog Rescue, and is facing charges in connection with a series of alleged dog thefts that have taken place across the Lower Mainland since 2006. Five other women have also been charged. At Monday’s council meeting, Olson showed a video of dogs that were chained, painting a picture of dogs unable to run free and stuck outside in extreme weather. “This is what life is like day after day, year after year, for many resident dogs,” she said.

Other cities that have enacted similar bylaws include New Westminster and Delta. Mayor Dianne Watts said she supports creating a bylaw “150 per cent.” She said once staff had drafted a bylaw, she wants to engage the three women to ensure the bylaw is written thoroughly. Coun. Mary Martin echoed that support. “This is heartbreaking,” Martin said. “I have never lived without dogs.” Coun. Barbara Steele requested an emergency resolution be sent to the Lower Mainland Local Government Associations (LMLGA), which is having its AGM in May. Steele said she hoped the resolution would then be forwarded to the Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM), to spread the word to other cities. Olson faces charges ranging from possessing a break-in instrument to fraud and theft. The crimes are alleged to have taken place in several cities, including Surrey, Langley, Vancouver, White Rock and Delta. Police allege that after receiving tips about dogs left outside, Olson and other members

of A Better Life Dog Rescue employed a number of methods to take the dogs, including cutting fences and leashes, luring dogs with food and breaking locks. Investigators believe Olson may be responsible for as many as 47 alleged thefts. According to ABLDR’s website, the organization doesn’t have a shelter but collects donations through a post office box in White Rock to help abused and neglected dogs. The outfit has been running for three years and in that time claims to have rescued and re-homed more than 1,000 dogs to date. But Surrey RCMP Cpl. Grainger said in December that A Better Life Dog Rescue is not an accredited rescue organization or affiliated with any such groups. Grainger said the Surrey RCMP property crime unit launched an investigation after learning about a number of pet thefts in the Lower Mainland. Olson and her organization were subjects of interest at the onset, he added. “This investigation quickly revealed Olson and [ABLDR codirector Louise] Reid were operating their charitable not-for-profit

Janet Olson is the founder and director of A Better Life Dog Rescue. organization beyond the scope of its mandate and allegedly unlawfully acting beyond their good will intentions,” Grainger said. Olson has said publicly on a number of occasions that she invests large sums of her own money to rescue animals that are abandoned, neglected or abused. She denies selling the organization’s rescue dogs for profit. Olson is scheduled to go to trial on her breach charges on May 2.

A 40-year-old Surrey man is in custody after allegedly ramming two cop cars with a stolen car in Richmond Tuesday morning, seriously injuring an officer and later injuring a woman before heading into New Westminster. At about 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, the Vancouver police department relayed a complaint of a stolen vehicle in the Richmond detachment’s area. Richmond plainclothes officers in unmarked police cars were guided to the suspected stolen vehicle by Onstar.

Richmond officers located the suspect outside of the stolen truck in the area of Smith and Douglas streets. “Our officers attempted to arrest the adult male suspect, however he ignored police commands,” said Staff Sgt. Dave Conrod. “The suspect got back into the stolen vehicle and allegedly rammed two police vehicles, injuring one Richmond plainclothes officer before speeding away.” The driver is then alleged to have struck a civilian car at River Drive and

No. 5 Road, causing minor injuries to an adult female driver. Her four-year-old son, who was also in the car, was not injured. SEE VIDEO ONLINE A RCMP helicopter followed the truck into New Westminster. The truck then entered a car dealership where the suspect appeared to attempt to steal a vehicle and was busted by police. The man is in custody pending a court appearance.

Surrey family raises $75K for cancer in honour of mom Amy Reid

Now staff twitter@amyreid87

SURREY – Within days of losing their mother to cancer, Mandeep Gill and her siblings Jag and Manpreet knew they wanted to honour her in some way. “At her funeral we announced that we would be doing something in memory of her, we just hadn’t decided what that would be yet,” said daughter Mandeep, who lives in Surrey. Sarabjit Gill passed away on April 25, 2011 from an aggressive cancer that spread through her abdomen. “Unfortunately, the cancer was so aggressive and had spread so far that there were no treatment options,” said Mandeep. Her mother passed away just two and a half weeks after being diagnosed. Shortly after her death, the siblings decided to set up the Sarabjit Gill Memorial Fund, to benefit the B.C. Cancer Foundation. The funds will go toward cancer research. “It was obviously a devastating time for us,” Mandeep recalled, but added she and her siblings wanted to do something their mother would have been proud of. Mandeep said her mother was known for her giving nature, and this is the family’s way of carrying on her legacy. “The most important thing she taught us was to be good people and to be giving. In a way, we wanted to help other people because we couldn’t help her.” The siblings donated $15,000 to kick off the fund, and then put the word out

YOU’RE INVITED In 2011, the City adopted guiding principles for community consultation to shape future direction and relationships. As part of ongoing consultation between the City of Surrey and its community associations and residents, Six Town Hall Meetings have been scheduled to facilitate ongoing and meaningful two-way dialogue with residents and community groups.

Cancer claimed Sarabjit Gill one year ago. to family and friends that they were fundraising. Within a few months, they met their $50,000 goal. They extended their goal to $75,000, which, through donations from family and friends, Mandeep expected to meet by the end of the day Wednesday – the one-year anniversary of Sarabjit’s death. “It is our hope that a cure for this terrible disease will be found and that no family has to suffer the untimely loss of a loved one,” Mandeep said. Doug Nelson, president and CEO of B.C. Cancer Foundation, said the family’s fundraising efforts will have a significant impact on future research and cancer care in the province. “I’m truly humbled by the community’s caring support for the Gill family and their efforts to honour Sarabjit,” Nelson said. The public is invited to donate to the fund at bccancerfoundation.com/sarabjitgill. Depending on public response, the siblings may extend their goal to $100,000.

and full of garbage, condoms, needles and syringes, making it a playground for criminals. Many local Newton residents, including Devon’s parents, have taken it upon themselves to Devon Allaire-Bell clean up the space, in the hopes that local families can once again feel safe in the park they used to frequent. “These people took something that I valued more than my own life,” Devon’s dad Wayne told Surrey council. “We would like to make this a turning point for our family and for the community.” Cynthia said Tuesday the family has yet to hear from the City of Surrey about their request to honour Devon by renaming the park after him. City staff expect to have a report to council on the matter soon. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) is on the case and on July 26, 2011 and released a video of five South Asian males believed to be the suspects responsible for Devon’s death. Following the release of this video tips poured in, which have assisted investigators in providing a direction to move forward. Investigators are hopeful the new information will provide police with tangible evidence. Anyone with information can call 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Unsolved murder

SURREY – Wednesday marked the oneyear anniversary of the murder of 19-yearold Devon Allaire-Bell. Wayne and Cynthia Allaire-Bell, Devon’s mother and father, held a candlelight vigil for their son last night. It took place at Devon’s memorial site at Frank Hurt Secondary in Surrey. Devon’s parents are still devastated by their son’s death. “It’s horrible,” a tearful Cynthia said about the one-year anniversary of her son’s murder. Allaire-Bell and his best pal Jack Neilsen, 20, were playing soccer in a field behind Frank Hurt Secondary during the evening of April 24, 2011, when five South Asian men approached them and they got into an argument. Allaire-Bell and Neilsen were stabbed several times. Neilsen survived the attack and stumbled across the parking lot to call for help. Earlier this year, family and friends of the slain teen appeared before Surrey council, urging the city to name Frank Hurt Park after Devon. Many believe Devon’s killers used the park as an escape route. “Our son and friend to many had to die laying on the concrete parking lot of Frank Hurt Secondary while the evil that left two people for dead sauntered into the forest,” Cynthia said to Surrey council earlier this year. Cynthia told council that, before her son’s death, the park had become overgrown, describing it as dense with underbrush

SURREY – There is still a week left to get your foot in the door with Prospera Credit Union’s Soles4Souls charity event. Through the month of April, all of the credit union’s branches and its corporate office are serving as collection points for people to drop off gently worn shoes or financial donations to help those who have lost everything in natural disasters. The shoes are also used to support microbusiness efforts around the globe. Last year Prospera gathered more than 1,000 pairs of shoes. “This year, we’d like to see those numbers climb even higher,” said Bruce Howell, president and CEO. “Soles4Souls distributes shoes to people who really need them in more than 120 countries around the world. Please clean out your closets and convince your friends, neighbours and relatives to do the same.” To find a Prospera Credit Union branch near you, see prospera.ca.

WATKINSON IN MUMBAI

Nigel Watkinson, international trade team chair of the Surrey Board of Trade, is in Mumbai this week and the U.K. next week to network with industry leaders.

He will attend the Mumbai World Trade Centre Indiallia Business Forum, an international, multi-sector business forum of prescheduled one-to-one meetings. The intended purpose is to host a similar conference in Surrey in three years. Then Watkinson is off to visit the five area Chambers of Commerce in London to study that city’s international trade centre model. SBoT’s strategic goal is to launch its own International Trade Centre, the first of its kind in Canada linked to a Chamber of Commerce or Board of Trade where it creates a one-stop centre for business support, especially for the small- and medium-sized business market.

When you live with MS, stress is your enemy MS Society ‘a godsend’ for Surrey woman with a lot on her plate Matt Law

Now contributor

Thanks to the help of the MS Society, Surrey resident Karen Kaiser has had the help and support to deal with her diagnosis. (Photo: MATT LAW)

SURREY – When Karen Kaiser was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, a chronic disease of the brain and spinal cord, her life fell apart. For years, the 48-year-old Surrey resident had lived with undiagnosed symptoms, but doctors had been unable to give her any answers. The day after her mother’s funeral was the first time she knew something was very wrong. “The next day I woke up totally blind. They flew me down to Vancouver for medical treatment and the doctor said to me it is just stress and my sight will come back,” said Kaiser. Her sight did return but symptoms of the disease continued to plague her. “I got really, really fatigued and when I spoke it sounded like I had been drinking. I couldn’t stay awake for more

than an hour. It was unbelievable,” she said. The doctors, however, did not take a close look at her symptoms until she woke up completely paralyzed on one side of her body. In 2006 Kaiser was finally diagnosed with MS. Despite having an answer about her medical condition and eventually recovering from the paralysis, things in Kaiser’s life did not improve. She was unable to work and her fiancé became overwhelmed with the implications of her disease. “I guess he saw the things that could happen and he said to me ‘I didn’t sign up for this, I’m outta here’,” she said. Kaiser’s problems did not stop there. Shortly after being diagnosed she became embroiled in a legal battle with her brother over property. Unfamiliar with the legal system, unable to work and struggling with depression, Kaiser was left wondering how she would make it through. That’s when the MS Society of Canada stepped in. Through its Volunteer Legal Advocacy Program, the society offered free legal advice and a support network

to Kaiser. With the help of MS Society volunteers Kaiser was able to her reclaim her life and win the court battle. Gracelle Bonifacio, volunteer media co-ordinator with the MS Society, says this kind of support is crucial to helping those diagnosed with the disease. “Anything that is stress-induced actually triggers something called MS attacks. The severity of it really varies. It can be from pain to being immobile for a couple of days,” said Bonifacio. Through the MS Society, Kaiser has received support with everything from filling out paperwork to finding a place to live. “They are just a godsend,” said Kaiser of the MS Society. “They have taken a big burden off me.” Canada has the highest rates of diagnosed MS in the world. The disease affects between 50,000 and 75,000 Canadians. The Scotiabank MS Walk takes place Sunday, April 29 at Bear Creek Park in Surrey. Check-in time begins at 8 a.m. and the walk, which has both three- and five-kilometre distances, begins at 10 a.m. Visit www.mssociety.ca.

Politics

Let’s see what our MPs can do GuestColumn Matthew Claxton

O

ver the past century, Canada has imposed a lot of restrictions on its electors, trimming the number of people who are allowed to cast a ballot. Until not that long ago, women, First Nations, Chinese- and IndoCanadians, among others were denied the right to vote. Our rules about who is allowed to run have roughly paralleled those rules. If you can vote, you can run for office. A modern candidate must be a Canadian citizen and over the age of 18. But should voters and electors be the same groups? We always talk about holding politicians to a higher standard, but that doesn’t seem to start until they enter office, and begin failing. Why not test them before they get elected? In ancient China, for thousands of years, becoming a member of the powerful imperial bureaucracy required

submitting to a standardized test. It was meant to weed out the unfit and foolish, proving that officials were learned, cultured men. The British explorers and traders who saw the system in action thought it might be a nice replacement for their bureaucratic systems, which were based on patronage, nepotism, bribery and heredity. So the East India Company and the government bureaucracy slowly turned into a more or less meritocratic system. Unfortunately, they never applied the same theory to their parliament, or their monarchy. Let’s try a little thought experiment. Imagine we have a test that Canadians must pass before they run for high public office. What would this test look like? I’d suggest that the results should be independent of charisma. At no time should the testers meet the test-takers directly. First section: Math, including calculus and trigonometry. A number of questions, demanding that they show their work. (And let’s have none of that nonsense about some

people being naturally bad at math. It’s true, but do you want someone who can’t handle numbers in charge of national finances?) Second section: History, culture and religion. An emphasis on Canadian history is natural, but world history should not be neglected for people who will represent Canada abroad. And for a multi-cultural country, understanding at least the basics of all the major world religions seems like a no-brainer. Third section: Practical science and engineering. We can take our cues here from the challenges given to university students.

Build a spaghetti bridge that can support at least five kilograms. Assemble a two-stroke motor from parts, with no instructions. De-bug a piece of computer code. There should be at least two or three such challenges, with the tasks changing every year. Fourth section: Language. Write an essay in a language other than your mother tongue. Fifth section: Art. Yes, I want our politicians to create something beautiful or striking. Paint a picture, throw and glaze a pot, design a building, pen a sonnet, improvise a saxophone solo. Show us you have a soul, damn it!

If handed this test today, I would fail at least three, probably four sections. But I think if I applied myself, I could pass eventually. Most importantly, I think I’d be a better person for having studied and tried. The goal of such a system should not be to weed out potential candidates. It should be to ensure that

those who do run are wellrounded and informed in key areas, from science and math to culture and the arts. I’m not sure what a Canada ruled by those who passed such a test would look like, but I’d love to find out. Visit Matthew Claxton’s blog at langleyadvance.com

A bunch of beautiful roses and heartfelt thanks to Dave at Flag Mitsubishi. He not only came out of his way to jump-start my minivan but also followed my van until it reached the dealership without any problem. Our world is a beautiful place because of people like him. Thanks again.

A bundle of red roses to the man who cleans up Fleetwood Park. It was raining out, but you were out there picking up the fast food litter from the night before. Thank you for your care and dedication in maintaining the beauty of the park and the street that runs beside it. Your kind acts have not gone unnoticed.

Rotten tomatoes and a runny nose to the elderly woman who accused the young barista at Notti Biscotti of having germs. There is no need to belittle others that way. It is not too late for you to learn manners.

Red roses to the driver of the truck whose quick action (a horn blast) and driving skills saved my life. Thank you!

Roses to Langley Memorial Hospital for its efficiency. The data from my Holter monitor (turned in on Friday) was reviewed on Monday and sent to my family doctor in Surrey and I was in Surrey emergency on Monday. A pacemaker was inserted on Thursday.

Many roses for all who assisted me when I fell outside McGavins Bakery at Fraser Highway and 156th Street – especially the two young lads who helped me up from the ground, the Safeway lady who cleaned and patched my face and Anita who checked that I got home safely and was OK. Thanks, everyone.

The Editor, April 28 is recognized in Canada as a National Day of Mourning for women and men who have lost their lives on the job. Each year, hundreds of workers are killed, thousands more are permanently disabled or die from work-related diseases. Their loss and our sadness continue to be felt every day at work by coworkers, at home by loved ones and within our community by neighbours and friends. On Saturday, we must remember the women and men who lost their lives at work, never to see their families again and we must not forget the thousands of workers who will never return to work because of injuries and illness suffered in the workplace. As we prepare for the day of mourning for workers killed or injured on the job, we grieve more deaths in a Prince George sawmill explosion and possibly more to come. April 28 has become a day to both commemorate the lives lost in workplace accidents or from occupational disease, and also an opportunity to rededicate our commitment as a society to improve health and safety standards and practices on the job.

The Editor, This is an open letter to B.C. Education Minister George Abbott. I have finally decided to write to you. Having taught for more than 20 years and proud to be a teacher and giving all my energy to my students, I consider myself lucky to be a teacher and to be successful in my career. I thrive on teaching and seeing my students learn in a nurturing environment. I have, however, never seen such an attack on our profession and on our rights and worth as teachers. Being new to B.C. and having taught in other provinces and in other countries, I have been dumbfounded to see what is happening here. I believe Bill 22 is a blow to our education system, but I can accept that we agree to disagree if there is still room for discussion. I have ignored a lot of your comments because it would have affected my teaching and my positive approach to life as a whole. But your comments to the press are often inconsiderate and provocative. I chose to be a teacher because I love it, and I know many teachers who feel the same way. However, you have placed us in a position where we all feel demoralized and you are making our jobs more difficult each day. Is this what you want for our young generations of students? At the very least, you owe us a public apology and you need to stop your derogatory comments to the press. That may in turn at some point open a channel of communication and a more positive discussion. Aren’t we trying to be model citizens for our students? I always teach my young students that communication is the key. Please show us the way.

Party-starting DWW headlines fest Pop-rap band Down With Webster performs Friday night at two-day Party for the Planet, at Central City Plaza Mike Devlin

Victoria Times-Colonist timescolonist.com

D

own With Webster cofounder Patrick Gillett had his pick of options during a recent day off from his band’s cross-Canada tour. He vetoed hanging with some of his bandmates for a Steven Seagal movie marathon; ditto for a proposed gym workout, something Gillet said he avoids at all costs. He was leaning toward seeing the Winnipeg Jets play the New York Islanders in an NHL tilt, though he was unsure if even that would tickle his fancy. Finding a few moments of peace can be difficult in Down With Webster’s fast-paced world, Gillett acknowledged. The fact that he’s like any other manic twentysomething — driven to distraction — is made more complicated by being in a pop-rap band with five close friends. Gillett’s on-stage life presents him with much less of a quandary. When he stands alongside his mates in Down With Webster, his Toronto band of nearly a decade, Gillett has a solid idea of what he wants to achieve. “When we started out, the energy just came from being really excited to be on stage. There was always something to prove,” he said. “There is still a lot of that, but with this new album, I think we focused more on the songwriting. “There’s some more depth to the songs, so we can get away with not having to jump around like idiots for an hour and a half. “At the same time, I don’t like bands that stare at their feet all night, so we definitely try and put on a show.” The band’s latest recording, Time To Win Vol. II, recently earned Gillett and his bandmates a Juno Award nomination for pop album of the year. Gillett and bandmates Tyler Armes (bass), Dave Ferris (turntables), Cameron Hunter (rap vocals), Andrew Martino (drums) and Martin Seja (rap vocals) performed a medley of hits during last year’s Juno broadcast, a performance that ignited its teen-centric fan base gathered for the Toronto telecast. That’s a typical reaction at a Down With Webster concert; when the six-piece is preaching to the converted (i.e. teen girls), the results are indeed impressive. Down With Webster, or DWW, has always done well in major markets, but Gillett has been loving its current tour, a run through secondary markets such as Wood Buffalo,

The crowd-pleasing pop-rap sounds of Down With Webster, a Toronto-based sextet, will cap this year’s Party for the Planet on Friday, April 27 at Central City Plaza, Surrey. The two-day festival, staged by City of Surrey, continues Saturday, April 28 with daytime events.

There’s some more depth to the songs (on the new Down With Webster album), so we can get away with not having to jump around like idiots for an hour and a half. At the same time, I don’t like bands that stare at their feet all night, so we definitely try and put on a show. Alta., and Winkler, Man. Shows in smaller cities are always memorable, he said. “Sometimes going to places where they don’t get every act coming through, fans are really excited to go. Sometimes those are some of the best shows we ever play.” In Surrey on Friday, April 27, Down With Webster performs at 9 p.m. to close that day’s Party for the Planet, a two-day festival at Central City Plaza. Gillett and his DWW bandmates dedicate themselves to maintaining a strong internet presence, with dozens of daily posts aimed directly at their sizable audience. More than 420,000 fans follow the group on Facebook, with another 49,000-plus watching their every move on Twitter. These are numbers that tell Gillett the fans like what and how the group is communicating. “I love that we can get information out to our fans,” Gillett said. “But for me, as

a musician, sometimes I feel like it does become a bit of a popularity contest. I hope that kids are still going online and looking for good music, and not necessarily gimmicks.” Gillett is the first to acknowledge that Down With Webster is prone to delivering the occasional gimmick. However, he maintains the band’s uproarious on-stage personality isn’t an act, so it’s only natural that the online presence of its members suggests a similar tone. And why mess with a successful formula? A recent Facebook post regarding Valentine’s Day saw the band receive 4,600 likes mere hours after being posted. “Don’t get me wrong, our band has always tried to keep our online stuff funny. Some people would call it gimmicky, but at the end of the day, we really just want to bring people to the shows.”

The issue of the band’s music has been a contentious one thus far, especially to older, more mature music listeners. Down With Webster’s shtick is concerned almost exclusively with girls, parties, partying with girls and leaving girls to do more partying. It’s all harmless fun, albeit lowest-commondenominator pop — not unlike that which comes from the goofball bboys in LMFAO. A lack of credibility doesn’t mean Down With Webster isn’t successful. From a commercial standpoint, the group sells a heck of a lot more downloads than plenty of Canadian acts with far more visibility. Gillett is extremely proud of that accomplishment, and sees only brighter things in the future for Down With Webster. “We still have so much more to explore in terms of what we can get out of each other. We’re still learning new things every day.”

Surrey city council approved a large chunk of funding for the HSBC City of Bhangra Festival during a council meeting Monday night. The festival, which has been held in Vancouver for the last seven years, attracts approximately 10,000

participants. The festival will be expanding into Surrey with four events planned for this year, starting May 31. On Monday night, council approved $15,000 a year for the festival for the next three years, which is less than $25,000 per year that festival organizers had asked for. Mo Dhaliwal, director of VIBC Society (Vancouver International Bhangra Celebration Society) spoke to

Surrey city council on April 2, sharing the society’s plans to expand to Surrey. To do so, the society asked the city for a grant of $25,000 a year for three years to help with artist fees, production expenses, as well as marketing and venue costs, which is half of the $50,000 project annual budget for the festival’s Surrey component. see › page 21

ARTS & LIFE After hearing council’s decision to contribute $15,000 per year, Dhaliwal said he was pleased. “Basically, this means we have the necessary support to get the festival started in Surrey,” he said Tuesday. “That money goes a long way.” While the funding and city support is crucial, community support is equally important, Dhaliwal said. “The money is one thing, but we really rely on our audience, the community, to come out, see the shows and tell their friends.”

Dhaliwal said buzz is already building for the festival’s first event, which will be held on May 31 at the Surrey Arts Centre. Called rePercussion, the event will explore percussion and folk drumming from a variety of cultures. “We’re anticipating a good response, especially considering there’s already a buzz and it’s the inaugural year in Surrey,” Dhaliwal said. Other City of Bhanrga Festival events scheduled for Surrey this year include “Mehfil Night” on June 1 at Mahek Restaurant, “Celebrate the Harvest” on June 2 at Central City

Plaza and “Bhangra House” on June 3 at Newton Cultural Centre. Coun. Barinder Rasode said she thinks it’s fabulous that the festival is making the move into Surrey. “One of the things that’s very important to me is inclusivity. If you take a look at the City of Bhangra Festival, it’s not just Bhangra, they’ve incorporated other songs, dances from other cultures,” she said, adding that it’s important for council to support events that bring cultures together. “It’s a real mosaic,” Rasode said.

The Intermediate Strings, always a crowd-pleasing ensemble, will swashbuckle their way through music from Pirates, and then prove they aren’t actually rabblerousing pirates after all, by performing Lizt’s “Hungarian Rhapsody” when they’re done.

Peter Lee and Julie Lin, both of Surrey, will perform Saturday, May 5 during Surrey Symphony Society’s “A Spring Celebration” concert at Chandos Pattison Auditorium, in the Fraser Heights area of Surrey. (Photo: SUBMITTED) ‹ from page 22

Orchestra. I always learn so much at rehearsals, and have lots of fun. I hope both my orchestra and I will play well at our concert, so the audience can enjoy our music, and make Mozart proud.” I am sure Mozart will, indeed, be proud. And since tickets are affordable ($15/$10 at the door), I think we can make the orchestra proud by filling the large auditorium. You won’t regret it. If you prefer street dance to orchestras, check out IZM, a dance performance at Surrey Arts Centre on Wednesday, May

FLAG

2, starting at 7:30 p.m. Dance to express! Not to impress. Bboyizm Dance Company takes this motto to heart with IZM, featuring some of Canada’s most talented dancers. Choreographer and dancer Crazy Smooth pushes the envelope of street dance tradition with hip-hop, rocking and b-boying, showing audiences that hip-hop is a dynamic force in dance today. If you are into street dance, you really have to see this performance. You may think you know how to dance until you see the real thing. Crazy Smooth and his dancers hold nothing back. Dance to live. Tickets are only $20 via 604-501-5566. Oh, and just in case you feel you have something you need to express and haven’t found a venue for your self-expression, the Arts Council of Surrey is hosting an open mic event at Newton Cultural Centre (13530 72nd Ave.) on Thursday, April 26. OK, it’s short notice here, but don’t let that stop you. Sign in at 7 p.m. Wanted are singers, musicians, comedians, poets and audience members. This could be fun. It’s a $5 dropin entry fee, and is part of arts and culture week. Have your say — and bring along a few friends to fill the audience. It’s not a big event, but it’s there just waiting for you to participate. So many options to fill your entertainment schedule. Yes, there is definitely life after hockey. Welcome, spring.

Deb Jack earns ‘Good Citizen’ award from city Amy Reid

Now staff twitter@amyreid87

Deb Jack has received Surrey’s Good Citizen of the Year award. The recipient is chosen by Surrey council and is presented to a resident who has given outstanding services for the betterment of the community. Mayor Dianne Watts and the rest of council were to present Jack (pictured) with her award during the city’s annual volunteer services celebration Wednesday night, April 25. “The City of Surrey’s dedicated volunteers have helped shape our communities. We are very fortunate to have so many talented people contribute their time and energy to help make Surrey an even better

place to live,” said Watts. “Deb Jack has demonstrated an exceptional commitment to the people and places of Surrey and her passion for our community is one of the reasons she is such an important leader in Surrey.” Jack has been working tirelessly for the City of Surrey for many years. She is the president and co-founder of Surrey Environmental Partners, but wears many other green hats: She has worked with White Rock-Surrey Naturalists and participates in many forums, such as one on regional biodiversity conservation in Metro Vancouver. She often attends Surrey’s Environmental Advisory Committee meetings. Some of her other legacies include volunteering in Surrey’s Friends of the Forest program and serving on the Atira Women’s Resource Centre board of directors. Jack was also the recipient of the 2011 City of Surrey Green City Award in the individual category.

Only a guy with a nickname like Crazy Smooth could work so passionately to “promote and preserve the foundation of all street dances.” It’s the artistic philosophy of the Bboyizm Dance Company founded and choreographed by Crazy Smooth, known on his passport as Yvon Soglo, a resident of Gatineau, Quebec. He and eight other dancers with Bboyizm will be on stage at Surrey Arts Centre next Wednesday, May 2 with a show called IZM, an hour-long exploration of street dance on a short tour of B.C. The performance, part of Youth Week activities in Surrey, starts at 7:30 p.m., with tickets $20 at the box office, 604-501-5566. Bboyizm was brought to life by Soglo in the mid-2000s as a way to teach dance skills to people in his community. By 2010, the company was planning shows in the Ottawa/Gatineau region and tours

of Canada. For this tour of IZM, the dancers include Crazy Smooth, Melly Mel, Lost Child, Zepol Rock, Strife, Soul Step, Dirty D and others — a total of three women and six men on stage for what’s billed as an envelope-pushing performance. Originally from the West African nation of Benin, Soglo moved to Canada with his family in 1984. Soon enough, he was taken by the dance moves of Michael Jackson (“especially ‘Thriller,’ I remember seeing that and being blown away,” he says) and the 1980s movie Breaking. “Something clicked for me,” he told the Now this week. “I needed to dance.” In recent years, Soglo has been an instructor for circus acrobats, performed at the Nancy Jazz Festival in France and was named “Most Valuable B-Boy” at the annual Kings of NY Competition in 2006. Today, he is considered one of Canada’s top street dancers. Check out the company’s dance moves online at www.bboyizm.ca.

‘Because We Dream’ song drives BC Summer Games in Surrey TheBuzz Tom Zillich Arts & Life Editor

L

overboy keyboardist Doug Johnson and fellow South Surrey musician Don Wells have partnered again, this time to write “Because We Dream,” the theme song for the 2012 BC Summer Games being held in Surrey. To record the uplifting pop number, they scored the services of local vocalist Payton Rector, 14, of Surrey — a former winner of BC Junior Talent Search in Cloverdale and current student at Elgin Park Secondary. HEAR THE SONG ONLINE, WWW.THENOWNEWSPAPER.COM “She could be the next kd lang,” raved Wells, who doubles as media liaison for BC Summer Games and jams on the drums when he has some spare time. “She practised the tune on her own and was in and out of the recording studio in an hour, having laid down both lead vocal and BGs. We now call her ‘the Amazin’ Payton.’” Lyrically, the song draws attention to the bold aspirations of youth in sport, and relates to other endeavours. “In that sense,” Johnson added, “Payton is the perfect choice to sing (the song) because she is a truly inspired young artists with big dreams for her future.” More than two years ago, during the lead-up to the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver/Whistler, Johnson and Wells co-wrote an uplifting, pianodriven song called “From My Home,” the performance of which served to warm hearts during the Surrey stop of the Olympic torch relay.

South Surrey teen singer Payton Rector in studio with “Because We Dream” co-songwriter Doug Johnson, longtime keyboardist with Loverboy. (Photo: SUBMITTED) rounds were staged at Roadhouse Grille, with eight finalists on stage April 14 at Blue Frog. “The experience was absolutely unbelievable, lots of fun,” Tommy, 17, said of the Diamond contest. “I’m still super stoked that I won. The response and support from my fans has been huge, so I’m very thankful for that as well.”

ALTO TOPS TALENT CONTEST

Tommy Alto was the big winner during the recent Diamond in the Rock contest finals held at Blue Frog studio/ concert hall in White Rock. Second place went to Olivia Torrie, with Julie Lin in third. The Diamond in the Rock contest was created for performers age 19 and under who live in the South Surrey/ White Rock area. Weekly preliminary

AND IMPLEMENT COMMON RATES On April 11, 2012, the FortisBC Energy Utilities applied to the British Columbia Utilities Commission to amalgamate their natural gas utilities across the province and to implement common rates and services across their service areas starting January 1, 2014. Currently, FortisBC Energy Utilities is made up of three separate natural gas companies, operating in six service areas. The companies have their own services, service agreements (tariffs) and rates. If approved, the application would combine the three companies into one, under a single tariff, with common rates for the various regions. This Application has different implications for customers in each service area. If approved, customers in the Vancouver Island and Whistler service areas will see rate decreases, while customers in the Lower Mainland, Columbia, Inland, and Fort Nelson service areas will see an overall rate increase. PUBLIC REVIEW PROCESS The Commission is initiating a review of FortisBC Energy Utilities’ Application. To view the timetable for this hearing and the Application go to www.bcuc.com select “Current Applications” under “Quick Links” and scroll to “FEU Common Rates, Amalgamation and Rate Design.” HOW TO GET INVOLVED If you wish to participate actively in the review process, you may register as an Intervener or an Interested Party with the Commission Secretary in writing, using the contact information at the end of this notice.

Perfect pasta made fresh OnCooking Chef Dez Columnist

M

any children, and even a percentage of adults, have never had fresh pasta. All they know is that pasta comes dry in a box or bag. Not only is the texture of cooked fresh pasta superior to dry, the process of making it can be quite liberating. Making a well in the measured flour and mixing the dough directly on the countertop is an experience that everyone should try. And if you have children or grandchildren, get them involved — they will be amazed that you will be making dinner from raw ingredients on the counter. Yes, this does require more effort than opening a box, but the results are amazing.

Take a Sunday afternoon, put on some music by Pavarotti and make a month’s supply. It can be frozen quite nicely, if care is taken to not compress the fragile pasta dough back into a solid mass. For freezing, I use a large plastic container and put “nests” of freshly cut/floured pasta side by side, not stacked, in the container. Seal tightly and try to use it up within three to six months. Each nest can then be removed easily and directly put into salted boiling water direct from frozen, without having to thaw or cook more than you need. One last note: Pasta dough can be rolled and cut by hand, but perfection will come from buying a good quality hand-crank pasta machine. Beware, you get what you pay for; be willing to spend anywhere from $80 to $120 or more. I followed this advice in 1989 and still have the same pasta machine today. Enjoy!

dez@chefdez.com

Fresh Pasta from Scratch Ingredients: 2 3/4 (two and three quarters) cups all-purpose flour 3 large eggs 1/4 (one quarter) cup + 1 tbsp + 1 tsp water 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil Salt Method: 1. Mound the flour on a countertop and make a well in the centre large enough for the rest of the ingredients. 2. Add the eggs, water, oil and a pinch of salt to the well. Scramble the eggs with a fork and slowly start incorporating the flour. Keep mixing with a fork while continuing to incorporate more flour until you cannot mix with a fork any longer. Continue to mix by hand for a couple of minutes until it comes

together in one mass. You may need to add a bit more water if it is too dry or a bit more flour if it is too wet. It should be firm and holding together but not sticky. 3. Knead by hand for approximately 8 to 10 minutes until smooth. Shape into a ball, cover with plastic wrap and let sit at room temperature for 30 to 45 minutes, or up to three hours in the refrigerator. 4. Cut dough into four equal pieces and work with one piece at a time while keeping the others covered. Set your pasta machine to the widest setting. Hand shape the piece of dough into an approximate rectangle and feed it through the machine. Fold it over and pass it through again, and do this a couple of times to help make

it as rectangular as possible. 5. Continue to run it through the machine while narrowing the rollers on the pasta machine each time. Stop when the pasta has reached the desired thickness, dust liberally with flour and cut into the desired shape(s). Dust one more time with flour and set aside covered with plastic wrap until all the pasta dough is rolled and cut. 6. Bring salted water to a boil and then add the fresh pasta, stirring immediately and cook until done (anywhere from two to six minutes depending on thickness chosen). Toss with your favourite sauce and enjoy!

ARTS & LIFE Heartfelt comedy at Surrey Little Theatre

Only rain down the storm drain TIPS TO PROTECT YOUR LOCAL CREEKS & STREAMS Norm Foster’s comedy-drama Mending Fences is the latest play staged for a month-long run at cozy Surrey Little Theatre, until May 19. The story, starring Paul Cowhig and Robyn Bradley (pictured), involves a father-son reunion on a rundown Saskatchewan ranch. For tickets and more show info, visit www.surreylittletheatre.com or call 604-576-8451. The theatre is located at 7027 184th St., in the Clayton area of Surrey. (Photo: SUBMITTED)

It’s no secret, in winter and spring Surrey gets alot of rain. After it falls rain goes, untreated, down the storm drain straight to streams and creeks taking harmful chemicals and pollutants with it. Everyone needs to do their part to help protect the local streams and creeks because salmon and trout need a clean and healthy habitat. By taking preventative measures and making environmentally wise choices you can prevent pollution from reaching local streams and creeks.

1

The rain washes dirt and oil from driveways down the storm drain, so make sure when you clean your driveway that you direct all dirt and water onto your grass as it acts as a natural filter.

2

If you see a storm drain covered with debris, take a second and clear it off. This will prevent flooding and keep the debris from going down the storm drain which can affect fish habitat.

Kids, adults will love misfits of clever ‘Pirates’ ReelView Julie Crawford Columnist

The Pirates! Band of Misfits Directed by Tim Story. Featuring Hugh Grant, David Tennant, Salma Hayek, Brendan Gleeson and Jeremy Piven. My rating: 8 (out of 10)

Pirate Captain’s ragtag crew makes for an entertaining ride in The Pirates! Band of Misfits, which features the voices of Hugh Grant, Salma Hayek, Brendan Gleeson, Jeremy Piven and others.

The Pirates! Band of Misfits is simply too clever to be confined to the kiddie demographic. Even the music is tailored to moms and dads, with songs by The Pogues, The Clash, The Beat and ‘The Girl From Ipanema’ thrown in for good measure. Henry) and flashy American rival Black Bellamy (Jeremy Piven). Pirate Captain’s ragtag crew includes such diverse talents as Brendon Gleeson (as The Pirate With Gout) to Al Roker (The Pirate Who Likes Sunsets and Kittens). These pirates are pretty tame: while there is reference to running people through and using babies as squid bait, the only time the Pirate Captain pulls his sword out of its scabbard is to carve up the beast on the ever-popular

“ham nite.” Neither the crew nor Pirate Captain’s loyal bird Polly seem to mind his swashbuckling shortcomings. But then Pirate Captain boards The Beagle, Charles Darwin’s boat, and Darwin (voiced by David Tennant) excitedly informs him that Polly is not big-boned, as previously thought, but is a dodo. The promise of riches in London convinces Pirate Captain to leave the relative safety of Blood Island and sail to a Scientific Conference

in London, where almost certain beheading at the hands of Queen Victoria (Imelda Staunton), who has a vitriolic dislike of pirates, awaits. The magic is in the brisk wit of the script, and the film’s extensive details, which makes a second viewing desirable. Everything from the names of the pubs to the Chinese laundry are plays on words, some quintessential British. When Pirate Captain fills in his Pirate of the Year application, the

“Mom, are pirates real?” came the question from my six-yearold. My lengthy answer included allusions to Somalis, online piracy and the world economy. It ended with her frustrated, “Yes, but where can you buy the hats?” Disney and Johnny Depp helped resurrect the pirate theme, now a staple of birthday parties and the occasional wedding. (True: I witnessed a tubby wench/bride and a miserable-looking fellow in pirate garb tying the knot in Las Vegas.) Adding further fuel to piratemania are the smartypants at Aardman Productions, the folks who introduced the very funny canine-cheese loving duo of Wallace and Gromit to the world. The story centres on a hapless pirate known as the Pirate Captain (voiced by Hugh Grant) whose full, luxurious beard is the only treasure in his possession. Pirate Captain isn’t very good at plundering, and his failure to bring in enough booty has ensured his failure, year after year, to win the coveted Pirate of the Year Award. (The ceremony is a bit like the Oscars, but with more “arrrs” in the acceptance speeches.) His chief rivals are beautiful Cutlass Liz (Salma Hayek), Peg Leg Hastings (Brit comedian Lenny

category for “roaring” has boxes for “low,” “medium” and “Brian Blessed” (referring to the biglunged Brit actor, who is also in the movie). One scalliwag reads Ahoy! magazine, instead of Hello. Actors have fun with the voice work, but most impressive is Aardman’s trademark stop-motion animation, painstakingly executed, with fantastic results. You can feel the froth on the Pirate Captain’s grog, and his pointy sword (heightened when viewed in 3D). Gideon Defoe, author of the original book The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists (the film’s name was changed for North American distribution, a la the first Harry Potter), also wrote the screenplay. He has followed up this first adventure with books that include the pirates’ tussles with a whale, Napoleon, and communists. Clearly, Defoe is a pretty witty guy. In one of his book’s dedications Defoe thanks “Evangeline Lilly, Jennifer Garner, Julie Christie… Miss France 1998 and that elfin one from the first series of America’s Next Top Model.” The Pirates! Band of Misfits is simply too clever to be confined to the kiddie demographic. Even the music is tailored to moms and dads, with songs by The Pogues, The Clash, The Beat and “The Girl From Ipanema” thrown in for good measure, not to mention Flight of the Conchords’ nonsense song “I’m Not Crying” (“I’m making lasagna… for one”). So grownups leave the theatre wondering what it would be like to work with the very cool cats at Aardman, and pondering some of the film’s more sophisticated swashbuckling in-jokes. But kids? They just want the hat.

Get Out Your Bucket List, the Prospera Valley GranFondo is Coming to the Fraser Valley Olympic cycling team, there is a shorter 80 kilometre MedioFondo which offers the same great scenery and route as the longer ride with a few less hills. There is also a fun three kilometre FamilyFondo available and the Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition will be offering a cycling safety workshop for FamilyFondo participants following the ride. With more than a few cycling enthusiasts among the ranks at Prospera Credit Union, it wasn’t difficult to get the Abbotsford-based financial institution onboard as the title sponsor and once they had a sponsor committed, it didn’t take long for the Canadian Velo Event Management Society to build up support within Fraser Valley communities and the surrounding areas. “It’s amazing to bring this phenomenal event to riders in Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest,” says Jeffrey HansenCarlson, President, Canadian Velo Event Management Society. “This would not be possible without support from our community partners and sponsors.” Half of the net proceeds from The 2012 Prospera Valley GranFondo will go towards supporting the event’s charity partner, Special Olympics BC. “This partnership is unique in so many ways and we are excited to present a GranFondo to the Fraser Valley,” says

The search for your mortgage ends now.

Bruce Howell, President and CEO of Prospera Credit Union. “The opportunity for all of us at Prospera to work with such a dedicated group of individuals who have the goal of developing a top-notch community cycling experience in the Fraser Valley and a strong commitment for raising funds in support of Special Olympics BC is incredible.” “We are honoured to be selected as the charity partner of the Prospera Valley GranFondo,” said Special Olympics BC President and CEO Dan Howe. “This community event aligns perfectly with the core values of Special Olympics BC, celebrating inclusion, sport and healthy lifestyles. There are more than 3,900 Special Olympics BC athletes throughout the province, and this event will support the year-round sport programs through which they experience joy and friendship and improve their health and skills. We are also excited that our longtime law enforcement partners are supporting this event.” A group of enthusiast riders who will take part in the Prospera Valley GranFondo recently held an awe-inspiring fundraiser to build awareness for the summer event and encourage people of all skill levels to participate. For 24 hours straight, eight cyclists, including Prospera Credit Union’s Dave Bickell , kept their

wheels spinning on the patio of Wendel’s Bookstore and Café in Fort Langley in support of Special Olympics BC. “Riding in a fondo is one of those bucket list experiences,” said Dave Bickell , who is also leading road-training rides to help other Prospera Credit Union employees train for the GranFondo. “As much as I love the personal accomplishment, it’s even more amazing to see other people achieve it for the first time, especially those who never imagined that they could do something this big.” With only 1,500 spaces available for the event and considering the amazing success of GranFondos across North America, an early sell-out is expected. The Prospera Valley GranFondo will also require hundreds of volunteers to make the ride a success—from manning water stations, to setting up the start and finish lines or driving a pace car, there are numerous opportunities for volunteers to enjoy the excitement of the event and be on-the-ground where the action is for a unique perspective. To register or volunteer, visit www.ValleyGranFondo. com. Post ride festivities for the Prospera Valley GranFondo will include an authentic First Nation’s feast on the grounds of the Fort Langley National Historic Site.

This summer, the Fraser Valley, long known as the road cycling mecca of British Columbia is set to host what is sure to become one of Canada’s premier cycling events. The inaugural Prospera Valley GranFondo takes place on July 22, 2012 centered in the historic village of Fort Langley. For the uninitiated, a GranFondo is a mass participation individual and team cycling event with riders of all ages taking part. For some, it is an opportunity to challenge their physical endurance in a highly competitive race, while for others it is simply a chance to get out on their bike and enjoy a day of riding with friends and family. The Prospera Valley GranFondo offers something for everyone with three different ride options. For the hardcore cyclists, there is an amazing—some would even say epic—160 kilometre ride featuring quiet country roadways, scenic farmland, historic river valleys and a challenging mountain summit. The traffic-controlled route has been chosen specifically to provide participants with a traditional European GranFondo experience and is a fully supported, timed event that includes hundreds of volunteers, enthusiastic spectators and aid stations.

SURREY — More than two years after the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games, officials with Britco stepped onto the Modular Building Institute’s (MBI) podium in Orlando, Florida, to accept awards for its Olympic Legacy Affordable Housing projects. The Langley-based building manufacturer won four awards at an event this month for its social housing facilities located in Surrey and Chilliwack. Britco was an official supplier of the 2010 Winter Games. As part of the Olympic Legacy Affordable Housing project, Britco partnered with the Vancouver Organizing Committee for Games (VANOC) and BC Housing to design and manufacture 300 temporary rooms used by 600 officials in the Whistler athletes’ village during the Games. To fulfill a mandate to ensure meaningful social housing legacies after the Games, the 300 temporary rooms were disassembled and relocated to five communities across B.C. (including Surrey, Chilliwack, Enderby, Saanich and Sechelt), where they have been reconfigured into 156 permanent social housing rooms in facilities with community support services.

Colour of a front door says a lot about who lives inside Julie Beun

“I see a red door and I want to paint it black,” Mick Jagger once sang. Was he feeling a bit blue? Not at all. According to a new colour survey, the Rolling Stones singer just wanted to tell the world that he’d gone from being happy chappy to a money-making mogul, with a simple change of paint colour. Turns out, if eyes are the window to the soul, your front door is the portal to your personality. At least that’s the word from a 2,000person survey conducted for U.K. paint manufacturer Farrow & Ball. According to their results, red door fanciers are the relaxed life of the party, while those behind black doors are successful. If you’re lucky, you live next to a purple door, whose

owners are sociable, bubbly and chatty with a huge circle of friends. And if pink is your poison? You’re popular and daring, but as mischievous as a bag of monkeys. “If you have a smart, well-painted front door, the colour says a lot about your personality,” says Sarah Cole, U.K. marketing director at Farrow & Ball, which is running a competition for the most beautiful front door. “It’s the welcoming part of your house and it gives people an indication of what’s inside. It expresses your personality and what’s important to you.” But that should involve more than just a lick of colour, says Janise Saikaley, owner of Wellington West village’s Uproar Paint and Paper. “There’s a lot of junkiness that happens in front doors,” she says. “It’s not a drop-off see › page 56

zone and it’s not your exterior mud room. One of my pet peeves — and I know I’ll be shot for this — is, if you can afford to buy a $1,000 baby buggy, put it somewhere else than beside the front door. Be respectful of your neighbours and the street appeal of the neighbourhood.”

She recommends starting with the basics: Choose a colour that not only appeals to you, but fits with the style and era of your home. For brick houses — particularly older ones — Saikaley suggests using the exterior colour as a basis to either create contrast or blend with the front door. If you have a secondary front door, it should be painted a

In those cases, the bigger the door, the less noticeable it should be. It should it be a lighter, more washed-out colour than the front door, with the porch painted the same as the grout.

your home more welcoming and easier to find,” she says. “Weak lighting is a sign of a bad front entrance. Highlight it using beautiful lanterns or beautiful sconces. Update the light fixture on your garage, too. I like smaller lights on the garage and the big one on the front door, if the garage is in front of the house.”

Architectural elements add interest and focus, too. For front doors offset from the centre of the house, a wrought iron planter — never plastic — “gets your attention and automatically guides you on a path to the front door,” she says. “On the door itself, I love handmade numbers and door knockers. If you’re stuck for hardware, go for an oiled bronze or black

matte finish and always have full-sized screen or glass on a screen door so the colour can be seen.” Shrubs and planters can also add interest, along with a beautiful cedar or teak storage box for recycle bins. “Keep your front door clean, tight and respectful of the neighbourhood,” she says. “Your front door should always be welcoming, tidy and a little

bit glamorous.” Here are some tips to achieve an appealing and modern front entrance to your home: • If you have a house number near the door, choose a noticeable colour or handmade number plate rather than a simple black or white. • Paint the underside of a porch canopy to add interest to the entire area.

• If you chose a high-gloss finish, the colour will seem a shade darker. Gloss is excellent for a classic look in strong colours, while exterior satin creates a more relaxed feel for softer colours. • Consider painting the frame and door the same colour to make it feel grander. • Layer colour in your outdoor space by painting garden furniture.

RCMP Staff Sgt. Major John Buis has plenty to smile about. He turned 58 last week and on Saturday, he was inducted into the B.C. Basketball Hall of Fame after a lifetime of involvement in the game. Here he sits on his living room floor, which is made up of wood salvaged from the old North Delta Secondary gym.

Throughout the evening, Buis proudly wore his RCMP red serge uniform as a nod to the proverbial “sixth man” on his home team. “The RCMP gave me the opportunity throughout my 35-year career to help with sports,” Buis says. “I had supervisors who were knowledgeable and who wanted to make sure that we, as an organization, helped with the youth of our community. It just so happened that basketball fit well with that goal. “That’s still the goal with the RCMP but

it can be a challenge, particularly when officers are only in a community for a short period of time. I’ve been lucky because I’ve stayed in my home community for 52 years, and that’s very rare.” Buis’s résumé is impressive — 35 years in the RCMP; 38 years as a member of the high school AAA boys’ provincial tournament committee including 12 as tournament director; 16 years on Basketball BC’s board of directors including nine as president; five years as Canada’s representative on the FIBA (International Basketball Federation) Americas board of directors; induction

He fell in love with basketball in 1966 and played high school hoops at North Delta where he was a member of the Huskies’ 1972 provincial championship team.

In 1994, the Government of Canada sent RCMP Cpl. John Buis on a six-month assignment with the United Nations policing in the war-torn state of Croatia. As he prepared for the trip, Buis wondered how he would connect with the people in the troubled Balkan country. Drawing on his long experience with the game of basketball, Buis approached Spalding Canada representative Bill Field about bringing some balls along on the trip. Buis offered to pay for the balls but Field insisted on donating them and soon the RCMP officer was puzzling about how to fit 24 basketballs into his limited quota of luggage. “When I got to Croatia, there was a basketball court right in front of the building where I was stationed,” Buis recalls. “The people in Croatia didn’t have a lot because they had been subjected to a number of trade embargos and one of the things that was in short supply was new rubber products. So when I pulled out those basketballs, guess who was everybody’s new best friend? “I ended up playing and talking to the kids there and I was able to do that because of basketball. There was an avenue where I was able to use basketball just to get to know the community, which I needed to do with my policing role. Soon those 24 basketballs disappeared and that was great because the kids used them.” Buis’s Croatian adventure is just one example of how his career in the RCMP and his love of hoops have come together to make an impact on the lives of others. Last Saturday night at the Langley Events Centre, Buis’s years of contributions to the hardwood game were recognized when he was inducted into the B.C. Basketball Hall of Fame. In his acceptance speech Buis, now 58, took time to thank the “starting five” people who helped make the evening possible — his parents Jim and Betty Buis, high school coach Stan Stewardson, long-

hoops tournament and has been a member ever since. His work there led to other opportunities at the executive levels of the game in this province and, eventually, in the international arena with FIBA — the sport’s governing body. Through it all, Buis marvels at how often his work in the RCMP has meshed fortuitously with his love of the game of basketball. One of the strangest started with a violent encounter with a car thief and ended 30 years later with a backstage chat with one of the greatest international basketball centres.

In 1979, Buis was involved in a nasty incident when he and his partner stopped what turned out to be a stolen car from the U.S. The routine traffic stop went haywire when the driver pulled out a shotgun and opened fire on the two RCMP officers. Buis and his partner were both wounded in the incident and Buis ended up undergoing a series of operations. One of the specialists who treated him was a talented physiotherapist named Alex McKechnie. The Burnaby specialist later became a favourite of NBA basketball players, especially

members of the Los Angeles Lakers. Years later in his role with FIBA, Buis had the opportunity to meet with the new president of the Serbian Basketball Federation — former L.A. Laker centre Vlade Divac. “I spent 15 minutes talking with him and we were talking about mutual friends,” he recalls. Buis adds with a laugh: “It’s funny because my work with the RCMP and with my time spent with basketball has taken me around the world but where am I now? I’m probably 1,000 feet away from where I grew up.”

favour of a career as a pilot. “I was very fortunate when I played,” Buis says. “I was an OK player but I had great teammates in Stu Graham, Mike McNeil and Dave Coutu and an outstanding coach with Stan (Stewardson). I was in the right situation at the right school at the right time. All of those things had to come together and if you take one component out, the rest of it would not have worked.” As he trained to be a pilot, Buis regularly drove out to the airport Langley along a route that

took him past the Surrey RCMP detachment. On a whim one day, Buis popped in and asked if the RCMP was hiring pilots and suddenly his career plans took a turn. He joined the national police force and while the pilot gig did not materialize, Buis was fortunate to be assigned a posting right back in the Lower Mainland where he had strong ties to the basketball community. When he quit playing, Buis did not abandon the game and immediately joined the committee that organized the annual senior boys provincial

Sharks earn promotion Michael Booth

Now staff twitter@surreynowsports

The Bayside Sharks will be moving up the rugby pecking order next season. The Sharks clinched top spot in the Okanagan Springs Tier 2 Division 1 standings with a hard-fought 34-25 win over Velox at South Surrey Athletic Park Saturday. Winning the league title not only gives the Sharks a bye into the championship game in two weeks, it also boosts Bayside back into the premier ranks for next season. “It was a close game but we got the win and the bonus point and locked up first place and a bye into the playoff final,” said Bayside coach Pat Kearney. “Most importantly, we’ve been promoted to premier league for next year. We have finished first in the league standings and now we are determined to win the championship game in two weeks. “Our goal was to finish first and we achieved that and now we are going to hit the pedal hard and go after some trophies involved with the league.”

Bayside did not have a free pass to the premier ranks as Velox proved to be a stubborn opponent Saturday. The Sharks were stymied by the Island team’s defence for much of the first half and only led 14-13 at the break. Outside centre Spencer Thorpe, twin brother and winger Zach Thorpe, prop Connor Dickie and prop Josh Areai each scored tries for the Sharks. Kicker Pete Clifford rounded out the scoring with four converts, one penalty kick and a drop goal. “It was kind of tense for a while there when we led by just one point for something like 20 minutes,” Kearney said. “In the second half we got things going again and scored some more tries. Full credit to Velox for coming over and despite having nothing to play for, played a good 80 minutes of rugby. It was good competition and they could have been the spoiler for our whole season. It was good for our guys to be involved in a close game at this point.” The Sharks will now play the winner of a playoff game between Vancouver Rowing Club and Seattle.

Surrey United sent a statement to the rest of the field when they opened up women’s soccer Provincial Cup play with an emphatic 12-1 win over Victoria’s Castaways Sunday. The defending national and eight-time provincial champions had a bye through the opening round but showed no rust in Sunday’s quarter-finals against the Vancouver Island visitors. Surrey has now won 30 consecutive Provincial Cup games over the past nine years. “Castaways beat Richmond pretty handily the week before so we didn’t know what to expect from them,” said Surrey coach Jeff Clarke. “That game was on the Island so we didn’t get to see it. All we could do was prepare for the worst and our ladies took nothing for granted. They went out and played their best and it was a very professional effort again. “I know the score line doesn’t indicate it but they were a fairly decent team. They

were decent but we were pretty good on the day too.” Surrey wasted no time imposing their will on the proceedings with seven goals in the first half. United then added two more in the first 10 minutes of the final frame to push their advantage to 9-0. Castaways got one back in the 60th minute on a defensive lapse by Surrey to make the count 9-1 but it turned out to be a mere hiccup for United, who closed out the scoring with five more goals to complete the rout. Nicole Stewart led the charge with six goals for the double hat trick. Rachel Pelat, Aly Benes and Katie Thorlakson added two goals apiece to round out the scoring. Surrey will now take on North Shore in Sunday’s semifinal at Cloverdale Athletic Park beginning at 10 a.m. The last time the two teams met, Surrey needed to score two goals in the final 10 minutes to escape with a 2-1 win. “That’s not going to be an easy game,” Clarke warned. “North Shore played us tough this year and both times we had to come from behind to beat them. We won’t be looking past them, that’s for sure. We have a ton of respect for them and we’ll prepare like it’s the final game.”

Twelve-hour lacrosse game raises $15,000 for Cancer Society Fundraising match launches new season for lacrosse community Members of the Delta Lacrosse Association (DLA) and surrounding areas came to together to put on a memorable event that was highlighted by a 12-hour game – from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. – Saturday at the Ladner Leisure Centre. In the inaugural event, DLA members raised just short of a total of $15,000 and ultimately that was their goal again this year. Volunteers began organizing their effort in January and with the generous support of local businesses and private donors, they were thrilled with the response. Last year’s total has already been surpassed and when the final numbers are in, organizers believe it will be closer to $17,000 raised. The game began with Tessa Vincent and Savannah Phillips singing the national anthem. Tim Winter and Patty Burr (in honour of their mother) then dropped the first ball. Participating in the opening faceoff were Max Stalling and his mother Nancy.

Lacrosse players of all ages took to the floor at the Ladner Leisure Centre last weekend for the second annual Lax 4 Life.The 12-hour fundraiser game was once again a huge success with all pledges being donated to the Canadian Cancer Society. What followed was 12 hours of fast-paced box lacrosse action with Tyke members as young as seven being on the same floor with members of the Ladner Pioneers Senior “B”

team. Max Stalling raised the most money in 2011 and came through with a big total again this year with $1,630 – the fourth

highest total. His efforts were outdone by Hayden Dance, ($1705), sisters Tessa and Natalee Vincent and Caitlin Schlaak ($2,000) and Ashley and Mitch Robinson who topped the list at $2,040. Lax 4 Life volunteers were once again happy to welcome Delta South MLA Vicki Huntington to the event. Not only did she witness some great action but also met some of the young players of the Delta Lacrosse family that are willing to give back to their community. Organizers shared with her one great story of a young lacrosse player who, although he wasn’t able participate in the game, did come by to make a donation. He had “charged” members of his family 25 cents when they walked by his bedroom door and then he brought those funds down to the arena. Event organizers Angela Smith, Kelly Robinson and Angie Schwan, along with the support of their families, have already started to brainstorm about next year’s Lax 4 Life event and have also laid out a friendly challenge to the Campbell River Ravens Club to hold their own fundraiser game for the Canadian Cancer Society.

Jays happy after earning weekend split in Victoria

The North Delta Blue Jays survived a roller coaster weekend in Victoria where they secured a split in a pair of B.C. Premier Baseball League doubleheaders. The Blue Jays began the weekend against the Victoria Mariners Saturday where they dropped the first game 11-0 but bounced back to squeak out a 6-5 win in the second game. Sunday brought more of the same as North Delta fell 7-6 in the opener but held

on for a 5-4 win in Game 2. After a disastrous performance in the first game Saturday, the Jays regained their footing in Game 2 where they capitalized on four Mariner errors to pull out a win. On Sunday, the Jays scored four runs in the sixth inning only come up one run shy in the first game of the day. Game 2 ended in thrilling fashion when Wlodarczak’s long throw to home plate on the final play of the

seventh inning found catcher Bryan O’Hara in time to prevent the tying run from scoring. The Jays play Langley Thursday before heading to Kelowna for four weekend games against the Athletics. Elsewhere, the Whalley Chiefs’ hard luck continued with a pair of road losses to the North Shore Twins Saturday. The home side rocked Whalley 10-0 in the opener but the

Chiefs played much better in a 6-5 loss to close the set. Whalley took a 5-3 lead into the seventh inning only to have the Twins push two runs across in their final scheduled at-bat to force extra innings. North Shore then scored the lone run in the eighth to complete the comeback. Whalley is in Coquitlam for a Saturday twin bill before returning home to play Vancouver Sunday.

DONNA HOLM, Executrix

Cancer June 21-July 22: Your popularity, optimism and luck rise nicely through May. There remains a silent, solitary or private attraction or situation to mull over – it could be an old friend, a lover whom you don’t want revealed to everyone, or simply a nice streak of “home sweet home.” This private zone needs careful handling through August – don’t yield to temptation, nor commit yourself irrevocably. Career or prestige discussions continue well. Shop Sunday a.m., not Monday. Travel, talk Tuesday/Wednesday. Be home, or hold a garden party, Thursday/Friday. This night triggers sweet attraction. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Your energy and charisma soar briefly Sunday/Monday. Send a letter, missive, email Sunday a.m. to someone you love (even a favorite nephew, niece). Chase money, buy/sell Tuesday (best) and Wednesday. Errands, trips, talk and paperwork fill Thursday/Friday (careful Thursday morn). Retreat to a comfy chair, kitchen or garden, Friday night, Saturday. A good, easy week, with perhaps one ethical or cultural dilemma at its end. But all week, be ambitious, propose to higher-ups, display your talents, especially Tuesday. Through mid-2013, your popularity will rise – better after August. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Mysteries, detective work, health diagnosis, sex, intimacy, investments, debt, lifestyle decisions – these weigh on you, as the need to act, to step boldly, is undeniable. This pressure lasts to early July. This week and the next two, you’re wise enough, and see the big picture enough, to make a good decision: where to live, to whom to be loyal, what major change to make in your life, etc. Read, listen to information: it contains valuable clues. Rest, remain in the background Sunday/Monday. Your energy, charisma shoot upward midweek – start something! Money, Thursday/Friday.

Business Opps/ Franchises

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Chase money. Buy, sell, seek a pay raise or overtime and cultivate new clients. You might feel possessive about your loved one. Communications and travel, paperwork, errands and casual friendships flow well now to August – but if you experience a noticeable delay in any of these, walk away. Travel, Internet, coffee talks, etc. can spark an attraction that might grow into a partnership. But remain skeptical about people you meet in these ways until September. Sunday/Monday are romantic. Tackle chores midweek. Relationships – and intimacy – face you Thursday-Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Your energy, charisma, courage, clout and effectiveness soar for the next three weeks, Taurus – start important ventures, see and be seen, ask favours, demonstrate your talents. Your earnings (your whole money picture) look great to August – so do your sensual involvements. But a trap might also exist in both areas until September: DON’T try to get something for nothing, don’t yield to temptations, and if you meet inexplicable delays (even small ones) get out, fast. Spend Sunday at home. Romance, creativity and “happy risk” draw you Monday eve to Wednesday eve. Say yes! Gemini May 21-June 20: Continue to rest; avoid the crowd. Your energy is low, though your charisma is unusually potent. You could attract someone who is too energetic, or demanding/needy for you – this applies right into Aug, 30, so be patient, love without bias, and know the cosmos will pick the right time. (If a love affair is dumped in your lap before September, at least give it a good try. But if you have to chase it, let that tiny spark of resentment guide you to walk away.) Avoid arguments at home. Sunday’s busy, happy. Settle into home or rest midweek. Thursday/ Friday spark romantic notions.

April 29 - May 5, 2012

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Like Virgo, you face mysteries, detective work, health diagnoses, intimacy, financial and lifestyle decisions. These zones are lucky, especially up to May 13, so dive in rather than play for safety. (But remain honest, ethical.) Sunday/ Monday feature wish fulfillment, social joys. Lie low, rest midweek. You can make a great investment Tuesday. Your energy and charisma rise Thursday/ Friday: act to establish your position in power play, intimate or financial situations. Chase money, buy/sell Friday night, Saturday. Legal or international waters hold joys and traps – be long-sighted! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Relationships face you, carrying huge bags of potential: lucky money opportunities, beneficial relocation, negotiations, public dealings – especially as we approach May 13. You’ll need diplomacy, eagerness and desire to join. Where relationships veer into commitment, funding, intimacy – there you have good luck mingled with difficult karma, so step carefully. (Yes, it sounds contradictory.) Be ambitious Sunday (best) and Monday. Midweek, wishes come true, your popularity rises. But retreat, rest and contemplate Thursday/ Friday. Your energy, charisma surge Friday night, Saturday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Work piles up – plunge into it. Protect your health, eat and dress sensibly. Relationships continue to sparkle – now to August, people treat you with grace and affection. If you want to approach someone but are afraid, approach now; even if you’re rejected, you’ll walk away smiling. A wise, gentle mood flows over you Sunday/Monday. Career, prestige and relations with authority arise midweek. Bosses are temperamental now to July, so be diplomatic, grin and bear it. You’ll be more creative in your career. Friends and sunshine bless you Thursday/Friday. Retreat Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Romance, creative surges, joys from children, beauty, pleasure, vacation, self-expression, speculation and rewarding risks – these fill your days. They might build to a lucky situation or love around mid-May, but it will have a big responsibility attached. Until July, stray idealistic or “principled” thoughts might urge you to end a romance – I wouldn’t. Much talk at home might prefigure a summer struggle: talk about the pressures and “accidents” you fear might loom. Mysteries arise Sunday. Sweet wisdom midweek. Ambition Thursday/ Friday. Friday night begins an exciting weekend. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The weeks ahead emphasize home, children, security, retirement, foundations, nature and nutrition. These build to a superb opportunity (peaking about May 13) – for example, you could buy real estate (and be forever glad you did) or start a family healing, create a child, etc.You’ll feel sluggish, so take frequent naps. Your investigative talents rise to the surface, now to July – so might your sexual desires, so be good, moral, especially Tuesday/ Wednesday. Sunday/Monday highlight relationships (maybe love, Sunday morn, noon). Seek wisdom, learning, travel afar, Thursday/Friday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The main accent lies on travel, communications, errands, details, paperwork, and casual friends. These swell large, might provide you with a pathway to career or business success. (E.g., an idea or email you send the boss might wake him/her to your talents. Or you meet a VIP while running your errands.) Partners and others abandon their winter/spring indecision, and leap up to respond to you (especially midweek) – whether favourably or not, depends. Your home life is sweet, affectionate, until August.Tackle chores Sunday/Monday. Mysteries, finances, sexy urges arise late week. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-727-3673

Market ready to ‘connect’ Amy Reid

Now staff twitter@amyreid87

White Rock Coun. Helen Fathers says the White Rock Farmers’ Market is about connecting with the community. This year’s market starts on May 27. (Photo: FILE)

WHITE ROCK – The White Rock Farmers’ Market is gearing up for another fun-filled season beginning May 27. The market, which is in its 13th season this year, features fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods, garden products, specialty food items such as organic cheese and local seafood, as well as crafts. Coun. Helen Fathers, market manager, said many special events have been planned this year, hoping to make the market a destination for residents of White Rock and beyond. “When you come to the market, it’s not just about selling fruits and vegetables, it’s about connecting with the community at large,” Fathers said. “This year we’re hoping to attract lots of people by offering a large span of activities.” The events include a Doggy Day on July 15, which includes a dog show and new this year are dog obedience classes. Also new this year is a free children’s cooking class on July 8. The market will teach children aged five to 12 about “farm to table eating,” Fathers said.

“We will walk through the market, pick out fruits and veggies, decide what to make and make it right there onsite,” she said. The market will be holding an event for Canada Day and, as always, the market will be offering free space to nonprofit groups. In honour of Mary Hartwell, a former market director who passed away from cancer last year, the market has set up a scholarship fund. There is $2,500 to give away, $1,100 of which was collected at Hartwell’s funeral and the rest is by donation from the market. “The plan is to donate the money to somebody going to school for food and nutrition, farming, something like that. We wanted to do this to remember Marty,” Fathers said. Fathers said the market is proud to be almost entirely self-sufficient. “Only about two per cent of our total budget comes from grants,” she said. The market is waiting to hear back on a grant it’s applied for from Vancity Credit Union, to fund a special events coordinator. But either way, Fathers said there will be lots to see and do at this year’s White Rock Farmers’ Market. The market will be held every Sunday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. between May 27 and Oct. 7 next to the Whaling Wall, between Johnston Road and 15154 Russell Ave., Miramar Village Plaza.
