Yet another Surrey RCMP traffic crash. A 72-year-old Surrey man who was injured in a South Surrey crash involving a police car on Dec. 27 has since died, the BC Coroners Service revealed Tuesday. Donald Allan Murray died in Peace Arch Hospital on New Year’s Eve of injuries sustained after his sedan and an unmarked RCMP car crashed at the intersection of 56th Avenue and 184th Street. The BC Coroners Service is investigating the circumstances of Murray’s death, as are RCMP Traffic Services and the Surrey-based Independent Investigations Office, which examines police incidents involving serious harm or death. According to the IIO, which took jurisdiction of the investigation on Dec. 31, its investigators have received “full co-operation” from Surrey RCMP. This was the latest in a string of automobile crashes involving Surrey Mounties. Chief Supt. Bill Fordy, who took over control of Surrey

RCMP last June, said the frequency of crashes involving police is “100 per cent” on his radar and he is taking steps to address the situation. “It concerns me. It concerns everybody in the detachment,” he said. “We’re looking at training opportunities and initiatives.” “The very nature of police work is such that our police officers are driving at all hours of the day and night, in every possible kind of weather condition,” Fordy said. “Dynamic response to events in progress are an expectation of the public and authorized under provincial legislation. “I am very concerned whenever our members or a member of the public is injured in a police car accident,” Fordy said. “The impact of a police car accident is that they don’t arrive at a call for service, our police officers or members of the public are sometimes hurt or injured, and it is a drain on our material resources. The senior managers here at the detachment have been engaged in a series of discussions with the police officers working the streets relative to the matter.”

Federal court ruling

Métis given ‘Indian’ status Tom Zytaruk

Now staff Twitter @tomzytaruk

Métis people hoping to receive the same rights and privileges that status Indians receive from the Canadian government may have a long wait indeed. The federal court ruled on Tuesday, following a 13-year legal dispute, that Canada’s 200,000 Métis and 400,000 non-status Indians are in fact “Indians” under the

Constitution Act. Status Indians in Canada have access to special rights and privileges related to fishing, hunting and trapping, financial assistance for postsecondary education, and certain tax exemptions, among other things. The federal government is expected to appeal Tuesday’s ruling. “This is really going to throw a cat amongst the pigeons,” said Gerry St. Germain, a Métis and former Conservative

This is really going to throw a cat amongst the pigeons.… Let’s see where this all flows. Senator for B.C. who retired last year, at age 75. “I’m going to be watching it with great interest.” “Let’s see where this all flows,” the South Surrey resident said. “I think it’s going to cause a lot of expectations that may not be fulfilled. “It’s premature to speculate.”

Ken Fisher, president of Nova Métis Heritage Association in Whalley, figures that “in all probability” the federal government will soon launch an appeal. “Still, a step forward is a step forward,” Fisher said. “I’m feeling very positive about it.”

Birth photos stolen from Cloverdale couple Tom Zytaruk

Now staff Twitter @tomzytaruk

They’re choked that burglars made off with their jewelry, cash and electronic equipment. They’re none too chuffed that thieves ransacked their home, either. But what’s really got Gary and Gurprit Sohi upset is that the heartless crew who broke into their Cloverdale house on Jan. 4 also made off with their baby boy Manav’s birth pictures. The photos are contained inside the

laptops and camera the thieves took. Ironically, one of Manav’s earliest photos for his scrapbook will now be a picture of himself and his parents in the Now newspaper accompanied by a story they hope will somehow reunite them with his precious photos. Gary Sohi said his family had returned from Walmart to find their garage door and sliding door opened, and his wife’s emptied purse. They called 911. After the Surrey RCMP cleared the house, they found it in a state of chaos. “The master bedroom looked like a

tornado hit it,” Sohi said. “We’re pretty devastated.” But what hurts the most, he said, is that the photo record of the first two months of their son’s life is gone. “They got the birth photos,” he sighed. If only someone – you know who you are – would send the Sohi’s their missing cards... “I just want my pictures sent back to me,” Sohi said. Police have no suspects in the break-in. Anyone who might know where the Sohi’s photos are is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502. tzytaruk@thenownewspaper.com

On New Years Day, a Surrey RCMP constable was badly injured when his patrol car crashed into a lamppost at 144th Street and 72nd Avenue in Newton while he was responding to a call about a large fight involving weapons. He apparently swerved to avoid hitting another car. In November, Surrey Mountie Adrian Oliver was killed when his patrol car smashed head-on into a semi in Newton. An investigation revealed he’d been speeding without his emergency lights on. In October, the BC Coroners Service announced it will hold an inquest into the death of a Surrey teenager hit by a Surrey RCMP patrol car while she was crossing King George Boulevard in January 2011. In September, a general-duty constable was responding to a call about a fight in Whalley when her patrol car Tboned another car at 108th Avenue and City Parkway. In April, a Surrey RCMP unmarked car sideswiped a Jeep in the 15600block of 64th Avenue as the plainclothes constable was responding to a car theft in progress. Police said at the time that the officer had his sirens and lights going as he headed down the centre lane of 64th Avenue. When he hit the Jeep, both vehicles spun off the road. Also in April, an officer with the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit was charged with impaired driving. Her Mazda crashed on Highway 1 near Surrey’s 160th Street overpass in January. Police said she was off duty at the time. In March, a Surrey RCMP patrol car crashed into the Robin Hood Pub on 72nd Avenue in Newton and in January 2012 a Surrey RCMP patrol car swerved to miss a van, spun out and smashed into a post as the constable was on his way to investigate a burglary alarm. “There is a very robust protocol in place in Surrey that examines all of the circumstances of every police car accident and mandates that, where appropriate, remedial action, including additional training for the involved member, is provided,” Fordy said. “My position or view is that in cases where the police officer is deemed to have been in violation of regulations, the appropriate charges are recommended.” tzytaruk@thenownewspaper.com

NEWS Surrey city hall

Casino backers, opponents prep for Monday hearing Christopher Poon

Now staff Twitter @questionchris

With just a few days left before Surrey council hears from the public regarding the proposed South Surrey casino, proponents and opponents are looking forward to finally making their case directly to the city’s decision-makers. At Gateway Casinos & Entertainment Limited, the group behind the proposal, community liaison Tanya Gabara said they were looking forward to the public hearing. “We’re really excited for Monday because we know they (council) are excited to hear people get up and speak about the project and we are also very interested to hear from the public,” said Gabara. “It’s been quite the process so far and we’ve really

enjoyed being out and in the community (and) we’re very optimistic council is going to make the best decision for the city based on the information provided.” As for supporters, Gabara indicated that staff and supporters from Gateway’s other casinos would be present at the event, though whether or not they will be bused in, as they were during a Dec. 10 council meeting, remains to be seen. “We do have a lot of staff that want to attend, and as far as commuting them we haven’t determined that yet,” said Gabara. “In the end it’s up to the employee to determine how they get there but we do have a lot of employees who will be coming out to show their support Monday.” On the opposition side, Terry McNiece, president of South Surrey Ratepayer’s

Site of the proposed casino in South Surrey. (Photo: KEVIN HILL) Association, said they were organizing their speakers for the hearing. “We’ve also got quite a few more petitions signed by residents in the community and are currently working with 31 church groups and organizations opposed to gambling and the casino coming to the community,” said McNiece. “There’s a lot

of people in the community who appear to want to speak against it.” As for Gateway possibly bringing in supporters, McNiece said that was up to them, but wondered if it would just be taking up time and resources from Surrey residents wanting to speak. “The only problem I have with that is that they’re

taking up seats of residents of Surrey,” he said. “They keep saying they’re a good corporate citizen, so what’s the value in busing in hundreds of people to occupy seats from the surrounding community? If you bus in people from Langley or Burnaby, you’re basically occupying the space instead of people who have lived and worked here their entire lives.” Those interested in speaking should note that in order to speak during the public hearing, they will need to register beforehand; registration will begin at 5:30 p.m. at city hall. Speaker tickets will be handed out to all who sign up. Additionally, those speaking in favour of the casino will be given one colour of ticket while those against will be given another, and tickets will be handed

out on a first-come/firstserved basis. There will be no limit on speaker tickets, but the tickets will be used to determine the speaking order for the hearing. Opponents and proponents will alternate during the proceeding. For those wanting to attend the meeting and let council know their position without speaking publicly, comment forms will also be available for people to fill out. As a large crowd is expected for the public hearing, the proceedings will also be broadcast on monitors in the foyer of city hall and streamed on the city’s website. The public hearing for the South Surrey casino takes place Monday, Jan. 14 at Surrey City Hall at 7 p.m. For more information on the public hearing procedures, go to www.surrey.ca/12680.aspx. cpoon@thenownewspaper.com

More of Burns Bog protected with move of Delta-owned parcels Tom Zytaruk

Now staff Twitter @tomzytaruk

Delta Mayor Lois Jackson says she’s “stoked” that her civic government has added more than 1,000 acres of land into the Burns Bog Ecological Conservancy Area, for a total now of nearly 6,200 acres. “It’s all done and dusted,” Jackson chimed. “It certainly is a major legacy that can be made into perpetuity.” Jackson called the move “really

heartwarming.” “This is something that will be here forever for everyone,” she said. “We’ve got well over 6,000 acres and that’s just fantastic.” On Monday, Delta municipal council approved the transfer of eight parcels of Delta-owned land (400 hectares) into the conservancy area and 50 per cent ownership of the Delta Nature Reserve, and other particular parcels, to Metro Vancouver for $1. “It’s all the way around the periphery” of the bog, Jackson said. The biggest chunk is near the Vancouver landfill. The nature

resources and corporate planning, said council had previously directed staff to add the Delta Nature Reserve, which is the only part of the bog that is accessible to the public, and other Delta-owned parcels that have bog ecological attributes to the conservancy area. “It’s very exciting,” he said Monday night. “It’s a positive step forward.” The move will increase the total protected area by 20 per cent, to a total of just less than 2,500 hectares (6,177 acres).

reserve – with its boardwalks and trails – will still be open to the public, unlike the other protected lands. The Burns Bog Conservation Society also praised the move. “Delta council deserves credit for keeping a promise made in 2004,” said society president Eliza Olson. “It has taken a long time to happen. It’s worth it when you realize that 400 hectares of bog stores 10 times more carbon than the same area of forest in nearby Whistler or Port Coquitlam.” Sean McGill, Delta’s head of human

Noemi Masi, a tenant who helps the landlord with onsite duties, said Tuesday that Gill was still out of the country. Masi said Gill is aware of the flooding issues and said she would call him to do something about the residents’ concerns. Baron added that the city has had problems dealing with Gill in the past, ever since he bought the park in 1995. In the summer of 2008, residents experienced health issues after raw sewage leaked from the park’s sewer system and collected under one trailer, forcing its tenants out temporarily. “We’ve approached the landlord before about getting us right-of-ways, having trailers in proper spots,� said Baron. “He’s not interested in it. He knows it’s his responsibility.� Schimpf is concerned for the wellbeing of his family and neighbours if the creeks aren’t properly maintained. He said floodwaters from previous backups have already damaged the bases of numerous trees that are now leaning. One resident said four trees have fallen on her property in two years, with two of them damaging sheds behind her home. “It’s a high risk for everyone that lives here,� said Schimpf. “Nobody should have to live in fear like this.� jacobzinn@gmail.com

Tenants of a Whalley trailer park say they are tired of waiting on their landlord to properly drain several creeks on the property that are prone to flooding. Cory Schimpf, who has lived at Park Mobile Court on King George Boulevard near 96th Avenue for 14 years, said he’s gotten minimal response from landlord Gurmukh Gill in regard to fixing the drainage of the creek behind his home over the last six months. The park’s three creeks run into Bear Creek, but if they’re clogged, they pose a risk of water damage to homeowners. “We’ve had trailers flooding in here, trailers falling into the creek side,� said Schimpf. “We’ve had major floods in this whole trailer park and whose responsibility is it when it comes down to it? Nobody wants to take any responsibility.� In late November, following weeks of rain, Schimpf personally unclogged the culvert of the creek behind his home before it overflowed. And with the recent downpour across the Lower Mainland, the creek at the front of the property filled up, causing the creeks that run into it to subsequently rise to risky levels. In late 2012, under the impression that one of the three creeks belonged to the City of Surrey, Schimpf contacted the city’s environmental department for their assistance. However, since all three creeks are on private property, it’s not the city’s duty to ensure the creeks are properly maintained. “The only time we go in is if there are floods or fires, trying to make sure people are safe,� said Carrie Baron, drainage and environment manager in the city’s engineering department. “We can’t go in and do modifications to his site.� “They’re putting the onus on the park owner,� said Schimpf. “The park owner is reluctant on putting the money out that he needs to put out to maintain the proper

First Nations

Culture of need has to change ViewFrom TheCheap Seats Michael Booth

W

ay back in the mists of time when I was attending UBC – I believe it was the 1980s, but events from that decade remain kind of vague – one of my classmates was another fellow who grew up in Northern B.C. Brian was a talented hockey player and an allaround bright guy who regularly engaged the professors in after-class discussions. He was also a hereditary Chief of a First Nations band with a passion for helping his people, so many of those talks revolved around issues facing the indigenous population in this country. He opened my eyes to a lot of the problems facing First Nations in Canada, but the strongest memory I have is the story of how he ended up lugging a backpack full of books across Point Grey for four years. Like many Canadian boys, Brian spent his teens chasing the dream of a hockey career, but after

running into an endless line of junior coaches who believed native players were only good at fighting, he grew disillusioned. He spent a couple of years basically wasting his time with dead-end jobs, drifting from one party to another across British Columbia and Alberta. Being a bright guy, Brian recognized that he was driving in the fast lane on the freeway to nowhere and decided to do something about it. He told his party buddies, most of them native as well, that he wanted to go to university and get a degree in order to help his people. They openly laughed at the idea and pointed out the system was stacked against him. One night, at a house party in Calgary, he reached his breaking point and when his buddies woke up the next morning, he was gone. Brian recognized that the only way he could make a run at his dream of a university education was to make a clean break with the people who were holding him back through their negative lifestyles and messages. I’ve thought of him a lot in recent weeks as the Idle No More movement

emerged. My initial reaction was this is a good thing. It’s about time the grassroots of the native population stood up to the Ottawa mandarins who have dictated the terms of their existence for almost 150 years. It’s not nearly as onesided as when native groups were routinely screwed out of their land by the decisions of self-righteous bureaucrats 100 years ago – as they were in much of British Columbia by a lovely chap named Sir Joseph Trutch – but the current picture remains depressing. Native groups ostensibly have better representation now, but often the suits wrapped in tribal blankets don’t always speak for what’s best for the average First Nations member. The current system embodied by the federal Department of Aboriginal Affairs is beyond broken. It doesn’t need to be torn down and remodeled so

much as all vestiges of it need to be nuked off the face of the planet entirely. Canada is one of the wealthiest nations and its citizens are blessed with one of the highest standards of living on earth. Most of them, that is. If the mark of a society is the way it treats its neediest members, then we have badly failed the First Nations in this country. Poverty, addiction, rampant crime, a suicide rate that borders on epidemic, malnutrition – are these the characteristics immigrants look forward to when they come to Canada? Billions upon billions of government money have vanished into thin air as the feds have attempted to fix the human problems with money, but the situation, if anything, is getting worse. Idle No More should be embraced by Canadians of all political stripes for demanding change and for displaying a willingness to

work at the grassroots level for a better future for First Nations communities in this country. Then I recalled Brian and the struggles he had just to attend university. There are plenty of government education programs in place at the federal and provincial levels, but what good is a program promoting university access for First Nations when most of the kids the program targets have dropped out of high school in Grade 10? (Brian finished high school, but the majority of aboriginal kids do not.) Idle No More is a great first step, but its members have to be aware that the changes they seek will not happen with a pen stroke. Prime Mannequin Steven Harper is not going to simply hand over the keys to the Assembly of First Nations and wish them well because that would be just as disastrous as the current

system. The biggest problem the Idle No More folks are going to have to address is changing the culture of need, and the only people who can change that is the First Nations themselves. If they want to move forward, they have to break the cycle. And the task facing Idle No More leaders is daunting – the issues they have to correct run generations deep. When I was a teenager in a small northern town, I watched as a besotted native gentleman signed away his welfare cheque to a corner store in exchange for a pouch of tobacco, some rolling papers and a handful of 20s that didn’t come close to the amount he was entitled to. He signed the cheque with an X. Michael Booth can be reached at mbooth@ thenownewspaper.com

Highrise proof of pandering in North Delta The Editor, Re: “Council says Scott Road needs ‘flashy’ highrise,” the Now, Dec. 27. The Corporation of Delta’s mayor and council unanimously voted in favour of the profit motive and against the interests of its citizens who spoke out overwhelmingly against this monstrosity. It is very fitting that the word “corporation” is part of the municipality’s name as it walks hand-inhand with its business partners while it steps all over the little people. Our bylaws and so-called North Delta Area Plan are no match for the shredder at city hall. This result (approval of the application) isn’t what we expected from our elected representatives who were given the task of being responsible administrators. They lack the will to represent the ordinary folk of Delta, therefore they are not deserving of being our administrators. If a referendum on this application were held, the community would overwhelmingly refuse it’s approval. When the next election comes around, the mayor and council won’t get my vote – not any of them. Jason Lewko, Delta

Highrise horrible idea The Editor, Re: “Council says Scott Road needs ‘flashy’

We have three sons who are young homebuyers – they don’t want to live in condos, and most definitely not just off Scott Road. They want houses away from the traffic. This development will not attract them at all. When we retire, we will not be looking to live in a major traffic area either. After living here for 30 years, this will not make me want to stay in North Delta much longer. L. Baitz, Delta Delta council has enthusiastically given the go ahead to a proposal to build a 37-storey highrise in North Delta at 11941 80th Ave., near Scott Road. highrise,” the Now, Dec. 27. We do not need “diversity” of the sort the Delta Coun. Robert Campbell talked about in the Now. We like the way we are. Diversity is not a 37-storey building, it is a cultural concept. A 14-storey building like the ones in the same area are high enough. Furthermore, traffic on and near Scott Road is already ridiculous. Add in 359 more units for people to live in and it will be at a standstill a lot of times. As to commercial space in the building – did they not look at all the empty units in the strip malls along Scott Road? It doesn’t look like we need more.

Pronouncing fact The Editor, Re: “Hwhy is David James in Hwhite Rock? For the Cash, man,” the Now, Dec. 27. I enjoyed your article about David James and his tribute to Johnny Cash. James describes Cash’s pronunciation of the h in “wh” words (such as “what” sounding like “hwat”) as an “Arkansas speech habit.” It’s more than that – it’s the traditional pronunciation, still used by the upper classes and taught by elocution teachers throughout the former British empire. I learned it in central Africa. There were strong ties between England and the U.S. South before the U.S. Civil War. Plantation owners belonged to the upper classes, so they spoke that way and their descendants still do. In Old English the ‘h’

was even written first (“white” was “hwit”), but today almost the only “wh” word that everyone still pronounces the original way is “who”. Alan T. Chattaway, Surrey

Hearing hardly fair The Editor, If healthy dialogue from the community is a goal of Surrey city council, the public hearing on the casino proposed for South Surrey presents a problem. BCLC and Gateway Casinos have been allowed ample time to present their oral and written presentations. A coalition aligned against the proposal, “No Casino Surrey,” is being lumped in with individuals, pro and con. NCS’s researched, written proposal is being tossed in with all other written material and will be summarized in a predigested form for council. This in no way constitutes “healthy dialogue,” but is another attempt to suppress the opposition to a dangerous expansion of gambling in our community. We appeal for a more democratic process in which Goliath is not allowed to snatch David’s sling away. Susan Lindenberger, White Rock

Henry and Alice go wild in comedic sequel Erin McPhee

North Shore News emcphee@nsnews.com

Beverley Elliott, Andrew Wheeler and Susinn McFarlen (from left to right) in the Arts Club’s Henry and Alice: Into the Wild, staged at Surrey Arts Centre’s main stage from Jan. 15 to 26. The current touring version of the play stars Wheeler with Beatrice Zeilinger (as Alice) and Deborah Williams (as Alice’s free-spirited sister). Sexy Laundry premiered at the Vancouver International Fringe Festival in 2002. It’s since been performed across the country, as well as translated into a number of languages and performed internationally. Riml never planned on penning a sequel; however, a personal camping trip gone wrong at Osoyoos’ Haynes Point Provincial Park planted the seed. “It’s a beautiful place, but we had a real windstorm,� she said of the resulting disastrous vacation. Riml, who has been writing since she was 16, was active in theatre at her alma mater, Handsworth Secondary in North Van, and was a big fan of the Arts Club productions her mother took her to. She went on to study

at Simon Fraser University and received a degree in fine and performing arts. While she was at one point drawn to acting, her true passion quickly became clear. Her plays include Miss Teen, Under the Influence, RAGE and Poster Boys. The Arts Club has so far produced four of her works. “The Arts Club has been a very nurturing relationship,� she underlined. Riml’s one-woman play, On the Edge, was mounted at Victoria’s Belfry Theatre early in 2012. “All my plays usually feature women who are sort of middle-aged, either on the verge of breaking down or breaking through.� Riml, who was nominated for the

For playwright Michele Riml, the first show with an audience is nerve-wracking, to say the least. The North Vancouver resident describes the excitement experienced as akin to that split-second moment when you reach a rollercoaster’s apex and are struck by the realization that, like it or not, there’s no turning back. Lucky for Riml, her talent for bringing relatable characters to life Michele Riml continues to not only please audiences but leave them wanting more – so much, she’s willingly jumped on the ride once again to bring back two of her most beloved personalities. Riml’s Sexy Laundry first graced the Arts Club Theatre Company stage in 2004, introducing theatre-goers to middle-aged couple Henry and Alice. Interested in spicing up their marriage, they check into a spa hotel armed with a copy of Sex for Dummies. The play, a romantic comedy, explores why people stay together or drift apart. Its sequel, Henry and Alice: Into the Wild, first played the Arts Club’s Granville Island Stage last April. This time, the duo gives camping a whirl. Grappling with Henry’s recent job loss – and an uninvited guest – they discover how to survive a mid-life crisis, and confront truths about their lives and lifestyles. Now on tour in the Metro Vancouver region, the play hits Surrey Arts Centre’s main stage from Jan. 15 to 26. Like its predecessor, Into the Wild is very much a comedic romp, though at its heart is an important message. “Right now a lot of people are struggling,� Riml said. “With the economy, there are a lot of people who’ve been laid off or maybe their pension is less than what they thought it was going to be. While the play’s a comedy, I think there’s a real dramatic undertone and it’s about questioning what matters in life and what do you do when everything goes sideways.� Before making its Arts Club debut,

ARTS & LIFE Music

Strangelove-ing for 20 years TheBuzz Tom Zillich Arts & Life Editor

A

s cover bands go, Dr. Strangelove has been at it longer than most, with corporate events, the casinos, private parties, birthday bashes and more on their busy calendar. What began as a Doug & the Slugs side gig has become a 20-year adventure for the band, now led by the dynamic duo of singers Sarah Johns and Kelly Brock. Strangelove was born 20 years ago at Vancouver’s venerable Roxy cabaret, to which the band returns for an anniversary shindig next Thursday, Jan. 17. At her home in Cloverdale, Brock recently shared stories of the long Strangelove journey, with Johns on speakerphone from her residence in Vancouver. “Kelly and I met for the very first time when she auditioned for the band, about a year and a half after we started it,� Johns said. “She was our girl.� That jam-y audition was at the Roxy, where Strangelove went on to play four nights a week for close to 13 years. The band left the bar in 2005 to focus on corporate and casino shows. During their many nights at the Roxy, they rocked the stage with several high-profile musicians and athletes, including Tom Arnold, Jerry Springer, Ace Frehley of KISS, Pavel Bure and Mark Messier. For such photo ops,

Brock was smart enough to stash a disposable camera in her purse, in an age before camera-equipped cellphones. Many of those images have been posted on the band’s Facebook page as part of the band’s entertaining countdown to its anniversary event at the Roxy, where they haven’t played in seven years. Alumni band members are coming to the party; the first set will be played by the current version of Dr. Strangelove (longtime cohorts Pete Barone on drums and Andre Kunkel on bass, with keyboardist Richard Sera and guitarist Kevin Coles). “We’re like a family,� Brock said. “Strangelove is about talent, of course,� Johns added, “but it’s really about personality fit. We really need to get along with someone to play with them.� The majority of band lineup changes happened during those first couple of years, after singer/guitarist Chris Trigg founded Strangelove with Johns (nee Richardson) sharing vocals with Tania Hancheroff and Saffron Henderson, who tag-teamed the gig of second female singer. Over the years, the band has played covers of hundreds, perhaps thousands of songs. “‘Dancing Queen’ is probably the one we have played most often,� Johns said. “That and maybe ‘Love Shack’.� Looking ahead, Brock and Johns will be back singing

Cloverdale’s Kelly Brock (left) and Sarah Johns (middle) lead local show band Dr. Strangelove, which celebrates its 20th anniversary at a Roxy cabaret reunion party next Thursday, Jan. 17.

another song – “O Canada� – during Canucks’ home games, now that the NHL lockout is over. For Dr. Strangelove, other future gigs include Jan. 11 to 12 at River Rock Casino, Jan 18 to 19 at Starlight Casino and Feb. 1 to 2 at Vancouver FanClub, on Granville Street. tzillich@ thenownewspaper.com

“But also, it’s neat to know that you’ve written something that moves you and moves other people. And what’s really gratifying about Sexy Laundry, and hopefully about Into the Wild, is it’s a play for average people. It’s not high art, it’s not for just theatre aficionados, it’s for normal people. And they seem to relate to it, and I like that. When we saw Sexy Laundry, the audience would kind of nudge each other and talk to each other. It was clear that the issues were relevant to them.� With that in mind, Riml encourages audiences to take in a performance of Henry and Alice: Into the Wild. “If you’re going to come and pay your hard-earned money to go see a play these days, you should have fun,� she said. “I would hope that there’s something in the play to think about, but I promise that (you’ll) have a good time.� The current touring version of the play coming to Surrey next week stars Andrew

ARTS & LIFE Q&A with Randy “Elvis” Friskie

Elvis tribute artist Friskie ‘can’t work for cheese’ Tom Zillich

Now staff Twitter @tomzillich

On the phone, Randy “Elvis” Friskie sounded stoked about his upcoming tour of six “soft-seater” venues in the southwest region of B.C. – his first tour in several years. The 12-show tour, which includes a pair of performances at Surrey’s Bell Performing Arts Centre on Saturday, Jan. 12, involves Friskie’s large, Vegas-worthy show band recreating parts of Presley’s landmark “Aloha from Hawaii” concert to mark its 40th anniversary. Friskie, a veteran Elvis tribute artist who lives in Abbotsford, answered a few of the Now’s questions about the upcoming shows, his recent hiatus from touring and his unwavering passion for Mr. Presley’s music: Why are you doing a tour to mark the 40th anniversary of Elvis’ “Aloha from Hawaii” concert? Friskie: “Well, first of all, it’s funny, because someone said to me, ‘You’re doing your 40th anniversary tour? Wow, you’ve been at it a long time,’ and I just laughed, because sure, I’ve been doing this for a long

Veteran tribute artist Randy “Elvis” Friskie returns to Surrey’s Bell Performing Arts Centre for a pair of shows Saturday, Jan. 12, at 2:30 and 7:30 p.m. For tickets ($39.50) and more info, call 604-5076355 or visit BellPerformingArtsCentre.com. time, but not quite that long, you know? It’s the 40th anniversary of Elvis doing it, not mine (laughs). Like, how old do you think I am, man? So yeah, we’re taking what I feel are some of the best Elvis moments and bringing them to the stage – the first half of the show is all 1950s and 1960s and the second half is all the via-satellite show from Hawaii. That was a landmark performance for Elvis, so it’s pretty special. We’re doing something for charity, too – we’re getting jackets and blankets brought in for those who need those things, homeless people. It’s called Phil and Friends, a Christian group. He does those pickups and hands them all out to people.” How long has it been since you played here? It seems like quite awhile. “Locally, it’s been about five years since I’ve done a tour like this in the B.C. area,

I’m sorry to hear about your mother. That must have been a difficult time for you. “I do live for music, but I also live for my family. It was special to have those times with mom toward the end there, so it was a choice I had to make. But I’d always go out and do a few shows to pay the bills, because I don’t have a pension plan doing this, right? I can’t live on royalties.” Growing up, was music a huge part of your life? “My dad played, like, 14 different instruments and I was brought up playing music, along with my brother, who still plays and all that. I love doing it, but I hate see › page 17

because I took off some time when my mom got sick. She had a stroke and I took a hiatus for basically three years – I’d go and do a few big shows here and there but was always back within a couple of days, because I did home-care for her. She passed on a couple years ago now, so it’s been about five, six years since I’ve done something like this locally. And I’m stoked about it.”

the politics of it all, for sure. I’m just a musician, and I love doing Elvis – that’s what I do, and I promise people who come to see me that I will deliver the very best Elvis show they will see.”

Why are there so many tribute acts these days? “At one point, karaoke came in and everyone thought they were a singer who could sing these songs. They buy a cheap Elvis suit and bam! And that’s not a good thing, man, because I heard a story of one concert organizer who said he pays a guy in cheese – he runs a dairy, and the guy will do the show in return for some cheese. I mean, are you serious? I can’t work for cheese.”

‘Elvis’ Friskie at Surrey’s Bell Saturday

It seems like there are more and more people doing Elvis tributes these days. Have you noticed that? “I want to be politically correct here, so there’s a lot of competition – uh, well, there’s a lot of people out there doing stuff as Elvis. I’m not here to say yay or nay to anything else. There’s a lot of people performing as Elvis, but are they competition? Really? I don’t know. I’m not saying they’re bad or anything – there are some that are – but I just focus on what I do. I try to put on the very best show possible, and that’s what I bring to the stage.”

How do you rise above all that and do your thing? “A lot of people have called me the most normal, natural Elvis they’ve seen, which is a huge compliment. People tell me it’s exact, but it’s not exact, no. I do my best in tribute to the man, not an impersonation. There’s a big difference there. And yeah, I sound like him, even when I talk – I mumble a lot, and so did he. That’s just me, how I talk, and my brother is the same way, trust me.… There is, and was, only one Elvis Presley, who I think was the best live performer who ever lived. So I just give people a chance to see what they might have experienced seeing him in concert, live.” tzillich@thenownewspaper.com

ARTS & LIFE The arts

Surrey bashing is outdated If you think there is nothing on offer, and that delivery of the arts in Surrey is a problem (and, of course, it can always be better), then here is a thought for you: If you aren’t part of the solution, then you are a part of the problem.

ArtsScene Melanie Minty Columnist

I

overheard some derogatory comments recently regarding the lack of arts and culture in Surrey. Seriously. That notion is so outdated. Get over it. Just a few short years ago Surrey was one of the designated Cultural Capitals of Canada. With dedicated community groups, and the assistance of arts councils (Surrey and White Rock), the city officials, and programs in the schools, Surrey has a lot to offer in the arts department. So no more Surrey bashing, OK? If you think there is nothing on offer, and that delivery of the arts in Surrey is a problem (and, of course, it can always be better), then here is a thought for you: If you aren’t part of the solution, then you are a part of the problem. There were certainly several events, concerts, shows and exhibitions over the last month that lacked audience and/or participation. If this trend continues, then a vibrant arts and culture scene is just not possible. Check out Surrey Little Theatre, Surrey Arts Centre, Semiahmoo Arts, Arts Council of Surrey, the Bell Performing Arts Centre, the Wheelhouse Theatre at Earl Marriott Secondary, Fraser Valley Gilbert & Sullivan Society, Peninsula Productions and Royal Canadian Theatre Company. And this is just the start of the list. I’ll give you a little sample just to get started. Songs on the Spot is a program beginning at Surrey Arts Centre on Jan. 28. The concept is to sing, laugh and feel joyful. I like it. Very experienced program instructor Alan Marriott will coach you to create instant songs, three-part harmony and backup vocals. It may sound impossible, especially when singing experience is not required. The program runs for six weeks, costs $100, and you need to register by Jan. 14. A free, introductory session is offered on Monday, Jan. 21 from 7 to 9:15 p.m. Although the introductory session is free, participants must register by Jan. 14 to book their spot (www. surrey.ca/register or 604-501-5100). So maybe you are not ready to sing, laugh and be joyful – but maybe you know a young actor wannabe who would greatly benefit from some acting classes being offered at

Surrey Arts Centre. Preteen Acting Extreme will run for eight weeks beginning Jan. 22 (4:30 to 6 p.m., $135). This program, led by instructor Lisa Bunting, is designed for children age eight to 12. Bunting also has a program for teens (age 12 to 16) that includes theatre games and exercises, cold reads, monologues and scene study. Under her expert guidance, students will rehearse scenes and create compositions to be showcased in a final performance for family and friends. Much Ado About Acting will also run for eight weeks, beginning Jan. 22 (7 to 9 p.m., $175, info at www.surrey. ca/register or 604-501-5100). Advance registration is necessary as minimum class size must be reached one week prior to the start date. Take advantage of this excellent class. So you made it this far in the column. Good. Or did I lose you when I mentioned Surrey was a designated Cultural Capital of Canada? Elsewhere, the Irish Club Of White Rock, in association with Semiahmoo Arts, is hosting a series of Irish Poetry Nights, to be held the third Wednesday of each month at Slainte By the Pier Gastrobar, on Marine Drive. Proprietor Jack Sixsmith, who is also a devotee of Irish poetry, will kick off the series on Jan. 16 at 7:30 p.m. by leading an evening dedicated to his favourite Irish poet, Patrick Kavanagh. Volunteers from the Irish Club will assist with readings and also present their favourite poets in subsequent months. The readings are intended for anyone wishing to discover and enjoy Ireland’s poets, delivered in Irish accents and in the comfortable ambience of an Irish pub. To get involved, contact Ray Fynes at 604-542-3667.

Passion for only best balsamic vinegar White Rock-headquartered importers aim to educate people with traditional Italian products Carolyn Cooke

Now staff Twitter @carolyncooke1

B

alsamic vinegar – the real, traditionally made stuff – is a sweet treat, and quite palatable on its own, but you’d never know that by sampling what passes for balsamic vinegar in most food shops and restaurants. That’s why two local men decided to not only launch an import company to bring real balsamic vinegar to Western Canada, they also spend a great deal of their time educating people on how to recognize and use these traditionally made products. Vittorio Castellini and Robert Mesiano started Agrodolce Importers in March last year, headquartered in White Rock, with the goal of offering a traditionally made Italian balsamic vinegar at a reasonable price. “The traditional aging of balsamic vinegar is done in a series of open barrels, so it makes it denser because it evaporates and it also acquires flavours from the woods,” explained Castellini. The one and only ingredient used is grapes – and only certain varietals – that are slow-cooked over a very low heat for days and then put into barrels. That’s the biggest giveaway when looking at the label of a bottle, he said. If it has caramel colouring or sugar, it has been industrially produced and additives are used to mimic the taste and texture of the traditional versions. A quick taste comparison shows the mimicry isn’t usually very successful, but few people even know they’re being had with a cheaply made substitute. “There’s a lot of misunderstanding, misinformation and even outright fraud,” said Castellini. Balsamic vinegar is a protected product in the European Union, meaning there are legal guidelines as to what can and cannot be labelled and sold as traditional balsamic vinegar, what it must look like, its acidity level, colour, and

Famiglia Dodi balsamic vinegar, aged 10 years and brought to local stores by White Rock-based Agrodolce Importers, can be used on fresh fruit, gelato or drizzled on fine cheeses.

I ask people if they want to sample some traditional balsamic vinegar and they say, ‘No, I have some at home,’ and I know they don’t. even density, among other attributes. To carry the EU seal, balsamic vinegar also cannot say how many years it has been aged or in what way, even though these factors are crucial to the traditional production process. That’s because the rules and regulations were put into place only a few decades ago, at a time when there were already a number of large industrial producers on the scene, so the rules reflected that, according to Castellini. However, the traditionally made balsamic vinegar, aged for 25 years, is also certified by a panel to ensure the very best stuff really is as good as the best balsamic vinegars

produced throughout the past thousand years or so. Because it is so time-consuming and expensive to produce, the top-notch certified balsamic vinegar is also the most expensive. One tiny sip reveals why dedicated foodies are willing to shell out some $280 or more for a 100-ml. bottle. And traditional balsamic vinegar is only produced in two small provinces of Italy, in Modena and Reggio Emilia. Producers have tried to make it beyond this region, but it can’t be done. “I ask people if they want to sample some traditional balsamic vinegar and they say, ‘No, I have some at home,’ and I know they don’t,” said Castellini. He and Mesiano had a booth at the Eat Vancouver food expo last summer and offered visitors a taste of different kinds of traditionally made balsamic vinegar. The real thing has a complex flavour, both sweet and bitter, and is used sparingly as a condiment. “There are only 10,000 of these bottles made a year,” he noted. “If people want to spend that kind of money, it’s certified – you don’t have to take my word.” Sadly, due to the EU rules, you can’t know how long any bottle of balsamic vinegar has been aged by reading the label. The three most popular items in the line imported by Castellini and Mesiano, the balsamic vinegar is made in the traditional way, but not for the full 25 years. “We’re not allowed to put an age on these. These are four, eight and 10 years old, and you just have to take our word for it,” said Castellini, referring to the Acetaia Dodi line of Il Buon Condimento, Il Capriccio di Valeria and Famiglia Dodi, respectively. The maker, Ricardo Dodi, is the biggest producer of traditionally made balsamic vinegar and also sits on the panel that certifies the 25-year-old batches. One of the brochures available with these products gives suggestions for how to use the products, such as using the least aged version in salad dressing, although the mediumaged version is better used in Chicken Cacciatore or Petti di Pollo al Balsamico, where it added after the cooking in order to preserve its delicate flavours. Famiglia Dodi, aged 10 years, can be used on fresh fruit, gelato or drizzled on fine cheeses. ccooke@thenownewspaper.com

Cooking

Sauce up your pasta with creativity, not canned stuff OnCooking Chef Dez Columnist

N

o question, people should try their hand at making fresh pasta instead of always relying on purchasing it dry from a bag or box. As for pasta sauces, the most common is the classic tomato sauce. Most people still buy canned or jarred pre-made tomato sauces to don their pasta. Some will at least get creative by adding extra ingredients like onions or garlic, but nothing can take the place of good

rustic homemade batch of tomato sauce. This does not have to be the style that simmers for hours on end either. Many great homemade pasta sauces can start out with a little help from canned diced tomatoes and some tomato paste, and be done in record time. Reduce it down even further at the end (by simmering some of the water content out) and replenish with some whipping cream and you now have a rosé sauce for those special occasions when calorie counting is not on your priority list. Any ground meat (beef, pork, chicken, turkey, lamb, etc.) cooked up at the beginning of the process will magically transform this rustic tomato or rosé sauce into a hearty

meat sauce. Sausage meat can also be utilized in the same manner by removing it from the casings and cooking the same as ground meat. Italian sausage (mild or hot, depending on your tastes) is wonderful for this. A béchamel (white sauce) is a very simple sauce. Don’t let the fancy French culinary name scare you – it’s just milk thickened with flour and butter. Add seasoning (salt, pepper and a pinch of ground nutmeg) and you have an incredible sauce that can be a blank canvas for your favourite cheeses, to be melted in or tossed with bits of grilled chicken. Add garlic and parmesan and you will basically have alfredo sauce.

Oils infused with flavours and seasonings can be the base of a tasty, light pasta coating. Heating olive oil over medium or low heat, and letting ingredients like crushed garlic, chillies and herbs infuse their way in, transforms an ordinary oil into a savoury enhancement. These types of sauces are perfect for less filling side dishes. A batch of seasoned simmered vegetables can also be transformed into a smooth sauce bursting with flavours, with the help of a blender, food processor or hand immersion blender. We actually do one with ground lamb where it is simmered with a number of vegetables and herbs with some red wine. A few good pulses in a blender, at the end

of the cook time, alter it into an amazing pasta sauce. One of the quickest pasta sauces you will ever make is a brownedbutter sauce. Take a hot pan and place a handful of cubes of cold butter into it. Stir, or lift the pan and swirl the melting butter, until the butter foam has just started to brown, and then toss with your favorite pasta. Your favorite fresh delicate herb (basil, oregano, sage) can also be added at the time of the cold butter. Although we have all been taught never to add butter to a hot pan for fear that it will burn, the trick is to remove the “browning” butter before it hits the burning stage. dez@chefdez.com

Four ranked teams head tourney field Michael Booth

Now staff Twitter @boothnow

So who are Surrey’s kings of the court, the sultans of swish, the city’s hoops honchos? We’ll find out beginning Sunday when the 22nd annual Surrey RCMP Senior Boys Basketball Classic tips off in gyms across the city. The tournament is the largest of its kind in the province with 39 teams competing in the junior and senior age categories. That’s a long way from the eight squads that gathered at Queen Elizabeth Secondary for the first RCMP tourney 22 years ago. Tournament organizer Rick Inrig has been building the tournament since the beginning and he can only shake his head at the hoops monster he helped create. “It’s pretty crazy now; there’s going to be over 70 games played next week,” Inrig said. “There were fewer high schools then so that was a factor but it was start. Then we went to 12, then 16, then 20 and it kept growing. Now we have 23 senior teams and cap of 16 teams for the junior tournament. It’s amazing we’ve been doing this for 22 years now.” The tournament serves as the unofficial city championship for senior boys high school hoops, a status that is not lost on the participants. This year’s field features four distinct favourites - White Rock Christian Academy Warriors (ranked fourth in B.C.), Tamanawis Wildcats (fifth), Enver Creek Cougars (8th) and Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers (honourable mention) - setting the stage for hard-fought battles as the tournament progresses. The junior tournament is more akin to the wild, wild west with no clear favourite but numerous longshots with a shot should the ball bounce in their favour. The senior tournament gets underway Sunday in six locations while the junior hit the court for the first time Monday. The semifinals begin at 6 p.m. Friday at Enver Creek Secondary with final slated for 7:45 p.m. Saturday at the same venue. The junior boys title will be settled at noon Saturday at Enver Creek. In addition to the coveted championship banners, players are also eligible for scholarships to help with their postsecondary education. These are awarded at the final phase of the tournament, an all-star game for graduating players held at the end of the competitive basketball season. Last year the tournament awarded 13 scholarships worth $12,000. Follow the tournament on line at www. surreybasketballclassic.com.

The Surrey United Firefighters started off the New Year in much the same fashion as they ended the old one — with a win. The Firemen hit the road Saturday where they blanked Norvan Pacific 3-0 to run their Vancouver Metro Soccer League premier division win streak to five games. Playing with just 11 men and no hope of substitution help in the event of an injury, the defending provincial champions knew exactly what to expect from Norvan since the two teams had faced each other two weeks earlier on the eve of the Christmas break. “It was kind of strange because we had just played them,” said Surrey coach Rob Reed. “Playing a team back-to-back doesn’t happen very often in this league and it’s very hard to win those games because they can still remember what you like to do and what works well against you. So there were a lot of things stacked against us, but full credit to our guys for getting the job done.” Surrey opened the scoring in the 15th minute when midfielder Colin Streckman headed home a pass from Ravinder Jammu. The score stayed that way through halftime but Norvan came out of the break strong thanks to the insertion of former Vancouver Whitecap Martin Nash. The Firefighters weathered the storm and then doused Norvan’s fire when a Streckman shot from 25-yards out found the top corner of the home team’s net double Surrey’s lead.

United then iced the win with a late goal by Jeff Clarke. While Surrey United’s stock is rising, the fortunes of Newton’s Rovers CCBTU continue to tumble. The league’s early season Cinderellas have now dropped six games in a row after being thumped 4-1 by visiting Croatia Saturday. Rizal Ganief opened the scoring for the Rovers on a free kick in the 10th minute but it was all down hill after that as Croatia scored three times before halftime and cruised to the win. Elsewhere, Newton’s ICST Pegasus continued their climb up the standings by passing the Rovers and moving into fifth place thanks to a 1-1 draw with the Hibernians in Richmond. Javid Khan set up Jag Gill for the lone Pegasus goal in Richmond. The Delta Hurricanes closed out the weekend with a hard-fought 1-1 draw against powerhouse West Van at John Oliver Park Sunday afternoon. After a scoreless opening half, West Van finally broke the scoreboard goose egg early in the final frame. The Hurricanes stormed back and created several quality scoring chances that ultimately came up empty. With time winding down in the game, Delta salvaged a point in the standings when playing-coach Steve Millar set up Joey Brar for the equalizer.

They’ll be throwing rocks at houses in Cloverdale next week when the British Columbia’s best women curlers gather for the 2013 edition of the Scotties provincial championships. For the second time in three years, the Cloverdale Curling Club will play host to the event, which begins Sunday and continues throughout the week until the final on Sunday, Jan. 20th at 2 pm. Heading up the talented field is Kelowna’s Kelly Scott rink, which will be chasing its third consecutive B.C. Scotties title. Scott is a five-time provincial champion with a resume that includes Scott Tournament of Hearts Canadian titles in 2006 and 2007, a World Championship title in 2007 and a World Championship bronze medal in 2006. The Scott foursome can expect a strong challenge from Cloverdale’s Marla Mallet rink, a team that finished second to Scott last year on the North Shore. Mallet is herself a former B.C. champion with a wealth of experience in big games. Shaw TV will be televising live at both the semi-finals on Saturday (Jan. 19th) and Sunday’s finale. Tickets are available at the Cloverdale Curling Club (6150 176 Street) for $40 for a full event pass or $5.00 at the door for a single draw daily. Great viewing is guaranteed with ice level seating in special bleachers set up for the event.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Stay ambitious. Several prestige trends culminate now, might lift you on their slender wings. To succeed, be diplomatic, show eager willingness, and tackle your duties. Your career – and life status, even life goals – are changing, mightily, this decade: get on the right side of this (ambition) not the wrong side (anger, resentment, rebellion). You might become a parent soon. Sunday’s happy but useless, so just enjoy. Retreat, rest, contemplate, plan, deal with management types Monday/Tuesday: promotion possible. You shine Wednesday to Friday: start projects, seek favours. Taurus April 20-May 20: This is your last week of a mellow, intellectual, understanding, loving mood. Nothing will upset your equilibrium, except possible friction at home. (Very likely if you’ve been fooling around.) You can reduce domestic strife all month by channelling this intensity into home repairs or other useful avenues. Sunday’s ambitious (or they call you “Sir/Madam” at the restaurant). Forego action. Happiness, entertainment, light romance, popularity – these visit Monday/Tuesday: someone’s interested. Retreat, rest and plan Wednesday to Friday. Your energy and charisma soar Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: Wrap up deep, changeful things – investment programs, sexual affairs, lifestyle changes, health actions, research or detective ventures. These are reaching a peak this week, but they will also lose their “main steam” by Saturday. Sunday’s affectionate, alert, but stick to routine. Your career gets a mild boost Monday/Tuesday: cast your eye on higher-ups, discern what they want. An air of (again mild) celebration comes Wednesday to Friday: social delights, more friends, entertainment, light romance. Retreat Friday eve, Saturday: your energy fades, but a month of joy begins.

Cancer June 21-July 22: The accent remains on relationships, opportunities and opposition. Opposition will be minimal, as others are inclined to appreciate you, to respond graciously. All month, your lustful, financial, and “detective” sides are strong. You can get ahead by combining ambition and your boss’s resources, especially Wednesday to Friday. You can also stir up a storm of sexual consequences anytime this month. (You might feel like such an adventure Sunday, but little will come of it.) A gentle, mellow, intellectual mood flows over you Monday/Tuesday. The weekend’s happy, flirty, friend-filled. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: It’s your last week of drudgery. Just plod on – Saturday (Jan. 19) will bring a completely new trend of fresh horizons, new contacts and opportunities. Meanwhile, perform tasks so they won’t weigh down your future. Sunday brings relationship impulses, but not much result. Dig deep Monday/Tuesday: you can discover valuable information, secrets, money sources or investment ventures. A love relationship can reach deeply into intimacy. Wednesday to Friday brings a gentle, mellow mood, wisdom, love, acceptance of society’s ways. Be ambitious Saturday: meet people late day, eve. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Give romance one more try. If you’ve been batting zeros lately (last two years) it’s because you’ve just entered a huge, whole, new relationship trend, to last 15 years. Right now, you’re at the adjustment, or try-and-see-what-works stage. Instead of being discouraged, throw yourself into your work – February to June, you could take a giant step upward/forward! Then, mid 2013 to mid 2014, you enter the first real romantic year of this huge relationship phase. (If you just fell into a huge, gratifying romance, don’t listen to me.) Monday to Friday emphasize this message.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: This week brings the last “home adjustment” for a while (until April or next December). You’ve made the essential change, the crucial choice – for now. Sunday’s creative, romantic, but leads nowhere. Tackle chores Monday/Tuesday – a productive, mild luck aids you. Relationships jut up from the landscape Wednesday morning to Friday eve. Often, this brings choice or the adjustment mentioned above, but this time the change seems to lie deep; it slumbers (unless you live in Asia or Europe). Mysteries, sexual longings, financial coups and lifestyle changes “whisper” to you Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The accent remains on communications, travel, paperwork, casual acquaintances. You are finally receiving some “pro” or affectionate responses to your queries. Stay close to home or in nature Sunday – DON’T start renovations or home repairs, just relax. Romance, creativity, pleasure, self-expression and charming kids call you Monday/Tuesday. Most systems are “go” for these: in fact, it’s a two-day winning streak. Tackle chores Wednesday to Friday. Be careful what you start Friday afternoon. This eve and Saturday bring relationships, opportunities – and potential opposition. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: This is your last week of dancing around the money tree. Money isn’t your biggest trend this winter and spring (relationships and relocation are) – but July onward will see you either buying a big investment (e.g., a home) or landing a lucky money pot. You’re restless Sunday: travel for pleasure, not practical ends. Be home, relate to kids, garden, mother nature, Monday/ Tuesday. All’s well. Wednesday to Friday brings romantic excitement, though it’s really a sensual attraction. The same days favour creativity, pleasure, sports. Tackle chores Saturday. Travel, soon!

Jan. 13 - Jan. 19 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Your energy, charisma and timing remain high. (In fact, your charisma steps up a notch.) Start communications or travel projects Monday/Tuesday. Start domestic, real estate, retirement or foundational projects – or end situations – Wednesday morning to Friday afternoon. Romance, creative surges, arts, sports, pleasure and luck visit you Friday evening to Saturday. (If a romance does begin now, how long it will last is uncertain.) Money flows to you all month – bank it; don’t spend (except on Jan. 22 for equipment, tools, telephony). Work delays will dissolve soon. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Continue to maintain a low profile: rest, contemplate, plan, reconnect with spirit. Be charitable. Visit institutions, government offices. Attend management meetings. Your energy and pizzazz climb nicely Sunday, but it’s hard to take advantage, so relax. Chase money or make purchases Monday eve through Tuesday – all’s smooth, no lemons. Your chatty side emerges Wednesday to Friday: you feel a bit of wanderlust. Wednesday’s best for friendly or “daily business” meetings. Friday night and the weekend bring weariness, and the end of weariness – a month of personal power begins! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your hopes remain high. The last few weeks have invigorated you with optimism, friendship and romantic possibilities. This week is similar, but it’s the last in your run. Don’t delay fun. Sunday’s tiring and yields no net results, so relax, contemplate. Your energy and charm bounce back Monday/Tuesday.Chase money,buy/sell,and catalogue your possessions (even if this is a mere mental runthrough of what you own) Wednesday to Friday. Avoid big purchases Friday. Casual acquaintances appear Friday night, Saturday – paradoxically, right at the start of a quiet, solitude-prone month. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014

Emissions

One of the biggest winter myths is that the engine needs to be warmed up for several minutes before being driven first thing in the morning. Twenty-five years ago this may have been true. Today, idling is not only a complete waste of money, but it also pumps needless emissions into the atmosphere. Until the engine and catalytic converter are fully warmed up, the vehicle is producing peak emissions. The best way to get things warmed up is to drive the car. As such, idling a modern car for more than 30 seconds is too long, even in the dead of winter. Reducing the morning idle time from five minutes to 30 seconds saves, on average, 66-litres of gasoline a year. And that’s sitting in the driveway going nowhere. For those living in extremely cold areas, the use of a block heater connected to a timer is advisable. In a test program conducted by Environment Canada, a vehicle sitting at -25 C was warmed using a block heater and then driven over a simulated urban driving cycle. This resulted in a 25 per cent reduction in fuel consumption compared to cold-starting the vehicle and driving it over the same route. One of the false arguments made to justify idling is that it costs money to shut the engine down. In reality, 10 seconds of idling consumes the same amount of fuel as starting the engine after shutting it down. As for the wear and tear factor on the battery and starter, it adds up to about $10 per year, which pales in comparison to the cost of idling. Prolonged idling is also one of the worst things the owner can do to an engine. Excessive idling can contaminate the engine oil, which will lead to premature, and very costly, engine wear down the road. It also allows excess moisture into the exhaust system, which promotes corrosion and premature replacement. The practice of idling with a low fuel level not only stirs up any dirt in the tank, but it also promotes the build-up of condensation in the tank, especially in colder temperatures. Keeping the tank topped up minimizes both risks. When the temperature plummets, any moisture in the fuel system will freeze. If this happens in the fuel line, the car will not start and must be thawed in a warm garage before it will restart. A recent Canadian survey conducted by Leger Marketing found that 85 per cent of mechanics agreed that the top benefit of using high quality gasoline is optimized engine performance. “Carbon deposit build-up or ‘engine gunk’ on critical engine parts is the result of various chemical and physical processes that occur in the engine during its normal operation,” explains Jim Macias, a fuels technology manager at Shell. “With 20 per cent more cleaning agents than before, Shell Nitrogen Enriched Gasolines protect intake valves and fuel injectors from performancerobbing gunk while you drive.” This winter keep idling to a minimum to keep things ticking along smoothly by keeping your engine protected. www.newscanada.com

Safety

Tips for winter driving ❚ Keep a safe distance between you and the vehicle in front of you in case you have to brake suddenly on a slippery surface. ❚ Get your vehicle winter-ready with a maintenance check-up. ❚ Make sure you have sufficient windshield washer fluid in the reservoir and keep an extra jug in the vehicle. ❚ Clear snow and ice from all windows, lights, mirrors, and the roof. ❚ Install winter tires before winter begins. Winter tires are often not available later in the season. ❚ Remember to check tire air pressure as it decreases in cold weather. ❚ Prepare a winter survival kit for your vehicle. Having essential supplies can provide some comfort and safety for you and your passengers should you become stranded. www.newscanada.com

Hemicuda: Finally, the 426 Hemi V8 was... home Jeff Melnychuk www. wheelbasemedia.com

This is a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;70 Hemicuda, which you easily tell by the two headlights. For â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;71, the final season for the Hemicuda, the front was fitted with a four-headlight setup. (actual ratings were reportedly closer to 465) at 5,000 rpm and 490 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm, there was no question that Chrysler knew where the rubber met the road. Of course, by 1970, the Hemi, in one form or another, had been flogged at

drag strips all over America for more than a decade. But, there was one teeny, tiny problem. To put it mildly, Chryslers were, ahem, conservative, in the looks department, which was the exact opposite of what was

driving an image-conscious 1960s carbuying crowd. You had to look as fast as you could go. While the GTO, Mustang, Fairlane, Camaro and Chevelle had be terrorizing the streets for years, Chrysler was content to see HEMICUDA â&#x20AC;ş page 52

H-E-M-I. Four little letters that could make your eyes fall out of their sockets and onto the garage floor, your heart stop cold in mid-beat and your jaw dislodge from its hingepoints. If there was a Hemi-powered Chrysler on the drag strip in the mid-to-late 1960s, you had better pray to the heavens that you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to square off against it at the starting line. Of course, Chrysler knew what it had created. After all, building this beast (actually, it was referred to as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;elephantâ&#x20AC;?) was no accident. The Street â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hemiâ&#x20AC;? (an abbreviation for its hemispherical combustion chambers) was a direct descendant of the race Hemi built to hunt Fords and Chevys on the NASCAR stock-car circuit. At 426 cubic inches of displacement, the Hemi took maximum advantage of NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s magic 7.0-litre rule. With a string of victories as long as a Cadillacâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tail fins, the mere mention of the Hemi literally freaked out anyone who knew anything about cars . . . fast cars, that is.

Hemicuda’s magic formula discovered in 1970

‹ from page 50 drop big engines in mid-sized family cars such as the Belvedere. All go and very little show, to be sure. In 1966, you could order the Street Hemi, but only if you could live with the looks of the stub-nosed

Belvedere/Satellite or hunchbacked Charger. Sorry, but that’s just the kind of Chrysler you had to buy if you wanted a Hemi. But what good was owning your very own elephant if you couldn’t really trumpet that fact to the rest of the world?

And then there was the price. A $900 premium, referred to as “staggering” by Car and Driver Magazine in April of 1966, wasn’t making a Hemi an easy thing to afford. That ideology lumbered along for a couple more years

until the B-Body Dodges and Plymouths (Charger and Road Runner) were reinvented in 1968. While met with healthy sales success, they still lacked the all-out sex appeal of the smaller, glossier Mustangs, Chevelles and Camaros

of the day. It took until 1970 to come up with the magic formula. The redesigned Plymouth Barracuda and newDodge Challenger were built on a more rigid “E-body” unitized platform. With a short rear deck, long hood,

regulations and gas shortages cut the knees out from the Hemi before more than a handful of examples could be built and sold. In fact, the politics of the day made it almost impossible to realistically own a muscle car during the beginning of the 1970s and, as such, demand for high-horsepower boulevard bruisers fell off a cliff. It was like a switch had been flicked off. Almost overnight - as early as 1971 - horsepower ratings plummeted for the Big Three’s muscle machinery. While the Hemi cars returned fully-charged for 1971, by 1972 it was all over. And in 1973, all you could get was the small block 340, then rated at 245 horsepower. At the end of 1974, the E-Body’s run was officially over. But that’s hardly the end of the story. By all accounts, the Challenger and Barracuda were the cars that showed Chrysler had what it took to lead the pack, both in terms of power and style. Back in 1970, the Hemicuda was the car to own, barr none. Forty three seasons later, it still is. ❚ Jeff Melnychuk is Wheelbase Media’s managing editor.

trick-looking Shaker scoops, screaming colors, strobe stripes, decals, whistles, bells, gizmos and geegaws, there was no question where you would put your money if you wanted the hottest ride around. Finally, the Hemi engine was . . . home. And a great home it was. In 1970, buying either a Challenger R/T with a Hemi under the hood or a Hemicuda (the ‘Cuda was actually a separate model from the Barracuda) was akin to achieving talk-show-host status, because if you went anywhere, you spent most of your time talking about the car. The ‘Cuda was not only hot looking, but robust enough for Trans Am road racing - without the Hemi, though - against Boss Mustangs and Z/28 Camaros of the day. That type of popularity continues even to this day. The Hemi Dodge Challenger and Plymouth Hemicuda are so highly regarded today that prime examples have sold for millions of dollars. That might have to do as much with rarity as desirability. The 1971 Hemicuda convertible, for example, is the rarest of the rare with only seven ever built. That’s right . . . seven. You see, fate would play a bigger part in the Hemi’s future than even Chrysler could. Mounting insurance premiums, emissions

Yet another Surrey RCMP traffic crash. A 72-year-old Surrey man who was injured in a South Surrey crash involving a police car on Dec. 27 has since died, the BC Coroners Service revealed Tuesday. Donald Allan Murray died in Peace Arch Hospital on New Year’s Eve of injuries sustained after his sedan and an unmarked RCMP car crashed at the intersection of 56th Avenue and 184th Street. The BC Coroners Service is investigating the circumstances of Murray’s death, as are RCMP Traffic Services and the Surrey-based Independent Investigations Office, which examines police incidents involving serious harm or death. According to the IIO, which took jurisdiction of the investigation on Dec. 31, its investigators have received “full co-operation” from Surrey RCMP. This was the latest in a string of automobile crashes involving Surrey Mounties. Chief Supt. Bill Fordy, who took over control of Surrey

RCMP last June, said the frequency of crashes involving police is “100 per cent” on his radar and he is taking steps to address the situation. “It concerns me. It concerns everybody in the detachment,” he said. “We’re looking at training opportunities and initiatives.” “The very nature of police work is such that our police officers are driving at all hours of the day and night, in every possible kind of weather condition,” Fordy said. “Dynamic response to events in progress are an expectation of the public and authorized under provincial legislation. “I am very concerned whenever our members or a member of the public is injured in a police car accident,” Fordy said. “The impact of a police car accident is that they don’t arrive at a call for service, our police officers or members of the public are sometimes hurt or injured, and it is a drain on our material resources. The senior managers here at the detachment have been engaged in a series of discussions with the police officers working the streets relative to the matter.”

Federal court ruling

Métis given ‘Indian’ status Tom Zytaruk

Now staff Twitter @tomzytaruk

Métis people hoping to receive the same rights and privileges that status Indians receive from the Canadian government may have a long wait indeed. The federal court ruled on Tuesday, following a 13-year legal dispute, that Canada’s 200,000 Métis and 400,000 non-status Indians are in fact “Indians” under the

Constitution Act. Status Indians in Canada have access to special rights and privileges related to fishing, hunting and trapping, financial assistance for postsecondary education, and certain tax exemptions, among other things. The federal government is expected to appeal Tuesday’s ruling. “This is really going to throw a cat amongst the pigeons,” said Gerry St. Germain, a Métis and former Conservative

Birth photos stolen from Cloverdale couple Tom Zytaruk

Now staff Twitter @tomzytaruk

They’re choked that burglars made off with their jewelry, cash and electronic equipment. They’re none too chuffed that thieves ransacked their home, either. But what’s really got Gary and Gurprit Sohi upset is that the heartless crew who broke into their Cloverdale house on Jan. 4 also made off with their baby boy Manav’s birth pictures. The photos are contained inside the

laptops and camera the thieves took. Ironically, one of Manav’s earliest photos for his scrapbook will now be a picture of himself and his parents in the Now newspaper accompanied by a story they hope will somehow reunite them with his precious photos. Gary Sohi said his family had returned from Walmart to find their garage door and sliding door opened, and his wife’s emptied purse. They called 911. After the Surrey RCMP cleared the house, they found it in a state of chaos. “The master bedroom looked like a

tornado hit it,” Sohi said. “We’re pretty devastated.” But what hurts the most, he said, is that the photo record of the first two months of their son’s life is gone. “They got the birth photos,” he sighed. If only someone – you know who you are – would send the Sohi’s their missing cards... “I just want my pictures sent back to me,” Sohi said. Police have no suspects in the break-in. Anyone who might know where the Sohi’s photos are is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502. tzytaruk@thenownewspaper.com

On New Years Day, a Surrey RCMP constable was badly injured when his patrol car crashed into a lamppost at 144th Street and 72nd Avenue in Newton while he was responding to a call about a large fight involving weapons. He apparently swerved to avoid hitting another car. In November, Surrey Mountie Adrian Oliver was killed when his patrol car smashed head-on into a semi in Newton. An investigation revealed he’d been speeding without his emergency lights on. In October, the BC Coroners Service announced it will hold an inquest into the death of a Surrey teenager hit by a Surrey RCMP patrol car while she was crossing King George Boulevard in January 2011. In September, a general-duty constable was responding to a call about a fight in Whalley when her patrol car Tboned another car at 108th Avenue and City Parkway. In April, a Surrey RCMP unmarked car sideswiped a Jeep in the 15600block of 64th Avenue as the plainclothes constable was responding to a car theft in progress. Police said at the time that the officer had his sirens and lights going as he headed down the centre lane of 64th Avenue. When he hit the Jeep, both vehicles spun off the road. Also in April, an officer with the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit was charged with impaired driving. Her Mazda crashed on Highway 1 near Surrey’s 160th Street overpass in January. Police said she was off duty at the time. In March, a Surrey RCMP patrol car crashed into the Robin Hood Pub on 72nd Avenue in Newton and in January 2012 a Surrey RCMP patrol car swerved to miss a van, spun out and smashed into a post as the constable was on his way to investigate a burglary alarm. “There is a very robust protocol in place in Surrey that examines all of the circumstances of every police car accident and mandates that, where appropriate, remedial action, including additional training for the involved member, is provided,” Fordy said. “My position or view is that in cases where the police officer is deemed to have been in violation of regulations, the appropriate charges are recommended.” tzytaruk@thenownewspaper.com

NEWS Surrey city hall

Casino backers, opponents prep for Monday hearing Christopher Poon

Now staff Twitter @questionchris

With just a few days left before Surrey council hears from the public regarding the proposed South Surrey casino, proponents and opponents are looking forward to finally making their case directly to the city’s decision-makers. At Gateway Casinos & Entertainment Limited, the group behind the proposal, community liaison Tanya Gabara said they were looking forward to the public hearing. “We’re really excited for Monday because we know they (council) are excited to hear people get up and speak about the project and we are also very interested to hear from the public,” said Gabara. “It’s been quite the process so far and we’ve really

enjoyed being out and in the community (and) we’re very optimistic council is going to make the best decision for the city based on the information provided.” As for supporters, Gabara indicated that staff and supporters from Gateway’s other casinos would be present at the event, though whether or not they will be bused in, as they were during a Dec. 10 council meeting, remains to be seen. “We do have a lot of staff that want to attend, and as far as commuting them we haven’t determined that yet,” said Gabara. “In the end it’s up to the employee to determine how they get there but we do have a lot of employees who will be coming out to show their support Monday.” On the opposition side, Terry McNiece, president of South Surrey Ratepayer’s

Site of the proposed casino in South Surrey. (Photo: KEVIN HILL) Association, said they were organizing their speakers for the hearing. “We’ve also got quite a few more petitions signed by residents in the community and are currently working with 31 church groups and organizations opposed to gambling and the casino coming to the community,” said McNiece. “There’s a lot

of people in the community who appear to want to speak against it.” As for Gateway possibly bringing in supporters, McNiece said that was up to them, but wondered if it would just be taking up time and resources from Surrey residents wanting to speak. “The only problem I have with that is that they’re

taking up seats of residents of Surrey,” he said. “They keep saying they’re a good corporate citizen, so what’s the value in busing in hundreds of people to occupy seats from the surrounding community? If you bus in people from Langley or Burnaby, you’re basically occupying the space instead of people who have lived and worked here their entire lives.” Those interested in speaking should note that in order to speak during the public hearing, they will need to register beforehand; registration will begin at 5:30 p.m. at city hall. Speaker tickets will be handed out to all who sign up. Additionally, those speaking in favour of the casino will be given one colour of ticket while those against will be given another, and tickets will be handed

out on a first-come/firstserved basis. There will be no limit on speaker tickets, but the tickets will be used to determine the speaking order for the hearing. Opponents and proponents will alternate during the proceeding. For those wanting to attend the meeting and let council know their position without speaking publicly, comment forms will also be available for people to fill out. As a large crowd is expected for the public hearing, the proceedings will also be broadcast on monitors in the foyer of city hall and streamed on the city’s website. The public hearing for the South Surrey casino takes place Monday, Jan. 14 at Surrey City Hall at 7 p.m. For more information on the public hearing procedures, go to www.surrey.ca/12680.aspx. cpoon@thenownewspaper.com

the red and infrared light. This stim ulates cells, increasing their m etabolism and regenerating healthy tissue.

NEWS South Surrey

Zellers store to stay open at Semiahmoo Shopping Centre Christopher Poon

Now staff Twitter @questionchris

The Zellers at Semiahmoo Shopping Centre will stay open until further notice. That was the news this week following a decision by the Hudson’s Bay Company to keep the store open beyond the previously-announced closure date of March 2013. The decision to close the store had been made following U.S. retailer Target’s

purchase of many Zellers stores across Canada. Those not purchased by Target were slated to be shut down. “After a review of the site locations not acquired by Target, Zellers has decided to continue to operate three stores beyond March 2013 under the Zellers name,” said Tiffany Bourré, senior manager of external communications with HBC. In addition to the South Surrey location remaining open, two other Zellers stores – one in Montreal and another in Toronto – will also remain open.

would be no disruptions to operations once the change is underway. Current staff positions may be redefined, meaning those hoping to remain at Zellers may have to re-apply for those positions. “The majority of associates will be given the opportunity to apply for a new position, based on the store business model,” said Bourré. “Those who remain will continue their service without disruption to seniority or other benefits.”

According to Bourré, the stores were chosen “based on opportunities in the market.” As for how the store will change, Bourré said they would be redesigning the current Zellers model from as it stands currently. “Zellers will redefine the store format to focus on fashion apparel and a refined home product offering, with a shared merchandise mix with other HBC banners,” she said. The store will remain open during the transition period, and Bourré said there

Tenants of a Whalley trailer park say they are tired of waiting on their landlord to properly drain several creeks on the property that are prone to flooding. Cory Schimpf, who has lived at Park Mobile Court on King George Boulevard near 96th Avenue for 14 years, said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gotten minimal response from landlord Gurmukh Gill in regard to fixing the drainage of the creek behind his home over the last six months. The parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three creeks run into Bear Creek, but if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re clogged, they pose a risk of water damage to homeowners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had trailers flooding in here, trailers falling into the creek side,â&#x20AC;? said Schimpf. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had major floods in this whole trailer park and whose responsibility is it when it comes down to it? Nobody wants to take any responsibility.â&#x20AC;? In late November, following weeks of rain, Schimpf personally unclogged the culvert of the creek behind his home before it overflowed. And with the recent downpour across the Lower Mainland, the creek at the front of the property filled up, causing the creeks that run into it to subsequently rise to risky levels. In late 2012, under the impression that one of the three creeks belonged to the City of Surrey, Schimpf contacted the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environmental department for their assistance. However, since all three creeks are on private property, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s duty to ensure the creeks are properly maintained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only time we go in is if there are floods or fires, trying to make sure people

are safe,â&#x20AC;? said Carrie Baron, drainage and environment manager in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s engineering department. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go in and do modifications to his site.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re putting the onus on the park owner,â&#x20AC;? said Schimpf. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The park owner is reluctant on putting the money out that he needs to put out to maintain the proper standards.â&#x20AC;? In November, Schimpf said the landlord was was in India and was hard to reach. Noemi Masi, a tenant who helps the landlord with onsite duties, said Tuesday that Gill was still out of the country. Masi said Gill is aware of the flooding issues and said she would call him to do something about the residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; concerns. Baron added that the city has had problems dealing with Gill in the past, ever since he bought the park in 1995. In the summer of 2008, residents experienced health issues after raw sewage leaked from the parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sewer system and collected under one trailer, forcing its tenants out temporarily. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve approached the landlord before about getting us right-of-ways, having trailers in proper spots,â&#x20AC;? said Baron. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not interested in it. He knows itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s his responsibility.â&#x20AC;? Schimpf is concerned for the well-being of his family and neighbours if the creeks arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t properly maintained. He said floodwaters from previous backups have already damaged the bases of numerous trees that are now leaning. One resident said four trees have fallen on her property in two years, with two of them damaging sheds behind her home.

First Nations

Culture of need has to change ViewFrom TheCheap Seats Michael Booth

W

ay back in the mists of time when I was attending UBC – I believe it was the 1980s, but events from that decade remain kind of vague – one of my classmates was another fellow who grew up in Northern B.C. Brian was a talented hockey player and an allaround bright guy who regularly engaged the professors in after-class discussions. He was also a hereditary Chief of a First Nations band with a passion for helping his people, so many of those talks revolved around issues facing the indigenous population in this country. He opened my eyes to a lot of the problems facing First Nations in Canada, but the strongest memory I have is the story of how he ended up lugging a backpack full of books across Point Grey for four years. Like many Canadian boys, Brian spent his teens chasing the dream of a hockey career, but after

running into an endless line of junior coaches who believed native players were only good at fighting, he grew disillusioned. He spent a couple of years basically wasting his time with dead-end jobs, drifting from one party to another across British Columbia and Alberta. Being a bright guy, Brian recognized that he was driving in the fast lane on the freeway to nowhere and decided to do something about it. He told his party buddies, most of them native as well, that he wanted to go to university and get a degree in order to help his people. They openly laughed at the idea and pointed out the system was stacked against him. One night, at a house party in Calgary, he reached his breaking point and when his buddies woke up the next morning, he was gone. Brian recognized that the only way he could make a run at his dream of a university education was to make a clean break with the people who were holding him back through their negative lifestyles and messages. I’ve thought of him a lot in recent weeks as the Idle No More movement

emerged. My initial reaction was this is a good thing. It’s about time the grassroots of the native population stood up to the Ottawa mandarins who have dictated the terms of their existence for almost 150 years. It’s not nearly as onesided as when native groups were routinely screwed out of their land by the decisions of self-righteous bureaucrats 100 years ago – as they were in much of British Columbia by a lovely chap named Sir Joseph Trutch – but the current picture remains depressing. Native groups ostensibly have better representation now, but often the suits wrapped in tribal blankets don’t always speak for what’s best for the average First Nations member. The current system embodied by the federal Department of Aboriginal Affairs is beyond broken. It doesn’t need to be torn down and remodeled so

much as all vestiges of it need to be nuked off the face of the planet entirely. Canada is one of the wealthiest nations and its citizens are blessed with one of the highest standards of living on earth. Most of them, that is. If the mark of a society is the way it treats its neediest members, then we have badly failed the First Nations in this country. Poverty, addiction, rampant crime, a suicide rate that borders on epidemic, malnutrition – are these the characteristics immigrants look forward to when they come to Canada? Billions upon billions of government money have vanished into thin air as the feds have attempted to fix the human problems with money, but the situation, if anything, is getting worse. Idle No More should be embraced by Canadians of all political stripes for demanding change and for displaying a willingness to

work at the grassroots level for a better future for First Nations communities in this country. Then I recalled Brian and the struggles he had just to attend university. There are plenty of government education programs in place at the federal and provincial levels, but what good is a program promoting university access for First Nations when most of the kids the program targets have dropped out of high school in Grade 10? (Brian finished high school, but the majority of aboriginal kids do not.) Idle No More is a great first step, but its members have to be aware that the changes they seek will not happen with a pen stroke. Prime Mannequin Steven Harper is not going to simply hand over the keys to the Assembly of First Nations and wish them well because that would be just as disastrous as the current

system. The biggest problem the Idle No More folks are going to have to address is changing the culture of need, and the only people who can change that is the First Nations themselves. If they want to move forward, they have to break the cycle. And the task facing Idle No More leaders is daunting – the issues they have to correct run generations deep. When I was a teenager in a small northern town, I watched as a besotted native gentleman signed away his welfare cheque to a corner store in exchange for a pouch of tobacco, some rolling papers and a handful of 20s that didn’t come close to the amount he was entitled to. He signed the cheque with an X. Michael Booth can be reached at mbooth@ thenownewspaper.com

Casino hearing is hardly a ‘healthy dialogue’ The Editor, If healthy dialogue from the community is a goal of Surrey city council, the public hearing on the casino proposed for South Surrey presents a problem. BCLC and Gateway Casinos have been allowed ample time to present their oral and written presentations. A coalition aligned against the proposal, “No Casino Surrey,” is being lumped in with individuals, pro and con. NCS’s researched, written proposal is being tossed in with all other written material and will be summarized in a predigested form for council. This in no way constitutes “healthy dialogue,” but is another attempt to suppress the opposition to a dangerous expansion of gambling in our community. We appeal for a more democratic process in which Goliath is not allowed to snatch David’s sling away. Susan Lindenberger, White Rock

Pronouncing fact The Editor, Re: “Hwhy is David James in Hwhite Rock? For the Cash, man,” the Now, Dec. 27. I enjoyed your article about David James and his tribute to Johnny Cash. James describes Cash’s pronunciation of the h in “wh” words (such as “what” sounding

like “hwat”) as an “Arkansas speech habit.” It’s more than that – it’s the traditional pronunciation, still used by the upper classes and taught by elocution teachers throughout the former British empire. I learned it in central Africa. There were strong ties between England and the U.S. South before the U.S. Civil War. Plantation owners belonged to the upper classes, so they spoke that way and their descendants still do. In Old English the ‘h’ was even written first (“white” was “hwit”), but today almost the only “wh” word that everyone still pronounces the original way is “who”. Alan T. Chattaway, Surrey

Highrise horrible idea The Editor, Re: “Council says Scott Road needs ‘flashy’ highrise,” the Now, Dec. 27. We do not need “diversity” of the sort the Delta Coun. Robert Campbell talked about in the Now. We like the way we are. Diversity is not a 37-storey building, it is a cultural concept. A 14-storey building like the ones in the same area are high enough. Furthermore, traffic on and near Scott Road is already ridiculous. Add in 359 more units for people to live in and it will be at a standstill a lot of times.

Delta council should go

Delta council has enthusiastically given the go ahead to a proposal to build a 37-storey highrise in North Delta at 11941 80th Ave., near Scott Road. As to commercial space in the building – did they not look at all the empty units in the strip malls along Scott Road? It doesn’t look like we need more. We have three sons who are young homebuyers – they don’t want to live in condos, and most definitely not just off Scott Road. They want houses away from the traffic. This development will not attract them at all. When we retire, we will not be looking to live in a major traffic area either. After living here for 30 years, this will not make me want to stay in North Delta much longer. L. Baitz, Delta

The Editor, Re: “Council says Scott Road needs ‘flashy’ highrise,” the Now, Dec. 27. The Corporation of Delta’s mayor and council unanimously voted in favour of the profit motive and against the interests of its citizens who spoke out overwhelmingly against this monstrosity of a highrise that is going to built in North Delta. It is very fitting that the word “corporation” is part of the municipality’s name as it walks hand-in-hand with its business partners while it steps all over the little people. Our bylaws and so-called North Delta Area Plan are no match for the shredder at city hall. This result (approval of the application) isn’t what we expected from our elected representatives who were given the task of being responsible administrators. They lack the will to represent the ordinary folk of Delta, therefore they are not deserving of being our administrators. If a referendum on this application were held, the community would overwhelmingly refuse it’s approval. When the next election comes around, the mayor and council won’t get my vote – not any of them. Jason Lewko, Delta

On stage at Surrey Arts Centre

Henry and Alice go wild in comedic sequel Erin McPhee

North Shore News emcphee@nsnews.com

Beverley Elliott, Andrew Wheeler and Susinn McFarlen (from left to right) in the Arts Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Henry and Alice: Into the Wild, staged at Surrey Arts Centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main stage from Jan. 15 to 26. The current touring version of the play stars Wheeler with Beatrice Zeilinger (as Alice) and Deborah Williams (as Aliceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free-spirited sister). Sexy Laundry premiered at the Vancouver International Fringe Festival in 2002. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s since been performed across the country, as well as translated into a number of languages and performed internationally. Riml never planned on penning a sequel; however, a personal camping trip gone wrong at Osoyoosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Haynes Point Provincial Park planted the seed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a beautiful place, but we had a real windstorm,â&#x20AC;? she said of the resulting disastrous vacation. Riml, who has been writing since she was 16, was active in theatre at her alma mater, Handsworth Secondary in North Van, and was a big fan of the Arts Club productions her mother took her to. She went on to study

at Simon Fraser University and received a degree in fine and performing arts. While she was at one point drawn to acting, her true passion quickly became clear. Her plays include Miss Teen, Under the Influence, RAGE and Poster Boys. The Arts Club has so far produced four of her works. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Arts Club has been a very nurturing relationship,â&#x20AC;? she underlined. Rimlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one-woman play, On the Edge, was mounted at Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Belfry Theatre early in 2012. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All my plays usually feature women who are sort of middle-aged, either on the verge of breaking down or breaking through.â&#x20AC;? Riml, who was nominated for the

Siminovitch Prize in 2008, also writes for young audiences through Green Thumb Theatre for Young People, and mentors youth through the IGNITE! Mentorship Program at Vancouver East Cultural Centre. Last spring, she got working on In the Garden with Emerson, which depicts an older woman in conversation with poet Ralph Waldo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel incredibly grateful that I get to make my living as a playwright,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It lets me work at home, it lets me have more time with my son (Christopher), whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 12.â&#x20AC;Ś So I feel grateful for that in terms of making a living. see â&#x20AC;ş page 17

For playwright Michele Riml, the first show with an audience is nerve-wracking, to say the least. The North Vancouver resident describes the excitement experienced as akin to that split-second moment when you reach a rollercoasterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apex and are struck by the realization that, like it or not, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no turning back. Lucky for Riml, her talent for bringing relatable characters to life Michele Riml continues to not only please audiences but leave them wanting more â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so much, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s willingly jumped on the ride once again to bring back two of her most beloved personalities. Rimlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sexy Laundry first graced the Arts Club Theatre Company stage in 2004, introducing theatre-goers to middle-aged couple Henry and Alice. Interested in spicing up their marriage, they check into a spa hotel armed with a copy of Sex for Dummies. The play, a romantic comedy, explores why people stay together or drift apart. Its sequel, Henry and Alice: Into the Wild, first played the Arts Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Granville Island Stage last April. This time, the duo gives camping a whirl. Grappling with Henryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent job loss â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and an uninvited guest â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they discover how to survive a mid-life crisis, and confront truths about their lives and lifestyles. Now on tour in the Metro Vancouver region, the play hits Surrey Arts Centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main stage from Jan. 15 to 26. Like its predecessor, Into the Wild is very much a comedic romp, though at its heart is an important message. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now a lot of people are struggling,â&#x20AC;? Riml said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the economy, there are a lot of people whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been laid off or maybe their pension is less than what they thought it was going to be. While the playâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a comedy, I think thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real dramatic undertone and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about questioning what matters in life and what do you do when everything goes sideways.â&#x20AC;? Before making its Arts Club debut,

Strangelove-ing for 20 years TheBuzz Tom Zillich Arts & Life Editor

A

s cover bands go, Dr. Strangelove has been at it longer than most, with corporate events, the casinos, private parties, birthday bashes and more on their busy calendar. What began as a Doug & the Slugs side gig has become a 20-year adventure for the band, now led by the dynamic duo of singers Sarah Johns and Kelly Brock. Strangelove was born 20 years ago at Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s venerable Roxy cabaret, to which the band returns for an anniversary shindig next Thursday, Jan. 17. At her home in Cloverdale, Brock recently shared stories of the long Strangelove journey, with Johns on speakerphone from her residence in Vancouver. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kelly and I met for the very first time when she auditioned for the band, about a year and a half after we started it,â&#x20AC;? Johns said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was our girl.â&#x20AC;? That jam-y audition was at the Roxy, where Strangelove went on to play four nights a week for close to 13 years. The band left the bar in 2005 to focus on corporate and casino shows. During their many nights at the Roxy, they rocked the stage with several high-profile musicians and athletes, including Tom Arnold, Jerry Springer, Ace Frehley of KISS, Pavel Bure and Mark Messier. For such photo ops,

Brock was smart enough to stash a disposable camera in her purse, in an age before camera-equipped cellphones. Many of those images have been posted on the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Facebook page as part of the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entertaining countdown to its anniversary event at the Roxy, where they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t played in seven years. Alumni band members are coming to the party; the first set will be played by the current version of Dr. Strangelove (longtime cohorts Pete Barone on drums and Andre Kunkel on bass, with keyboardist Richard Sera and guitarist Kevin Coles). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re like a family,â&#x20AC;? Brock said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Strangelove is about talent, of course,â&#x20AC;? Johns added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really about personality fit. We really need to get along with someone to play with them.â&#x20AC;? The majority of band lineup changes happened during those first couple of years, after singer/guitarist Chris Trigg founded Strangelove with Johns (nee Richardson) sharing vocals with Tania Hancheroff and Saffron Henderson, who tag-teamed the gig of second female singer. Over the years, the band has played covers of hundreds, perhaps thousands of songs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Dancing Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is probably the one we have played most often,â&#x20AC;? Johns said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That and maybe â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Love Shackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.â&#x20AC;? Looking ahead, Brock and Johns will be back singing

For Dr. Strangelove, other future gigs include Jan. 11 to 12 at River Rock Casino, Jan 18 to 19 at Starlight Casino and Feb. 1 to 2 at Vancouver FanClub, on Granville Street. tzillich@ thenownewspaper.com

ARTS & LIFE â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Henry and Alice: Into the Wildâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Camping trip at heart of Rimlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sexy Laundryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sequel

% LD! 0 8 O R YS E OV EAD R AL

While the playâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a comedy, I think thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real dramatic undertone and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about questioning what matters in life and what do you do when everything goes sideways. Wheeler (as Henry), Beatrice Zeilinger (Alice) and Deborah Williams (as Aliceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free-spirited younger sister, Diana). Tickets range from $25 to $43 for the run of Henry and Alice: Into the Wild at Surrey Arts Centre, via 604-501-5566 or tickets.surrey.ca. For those with impaired sight, an audio-described performance of the production will be staged on Saturday, Jan. 26 at 4 p.m.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;But also, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neat to know that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve written something that moves you and moves other people. And whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really gratifying about Sexy Laundry, and hopefully about Into the Wild, is itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a play for average people. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not high art, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not for just theatre aficionados, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for normal people. And they seem to relate to it, and I like that. When we saw Sexy Laundry, the audience would kind of nudge each other and talk to each other. It was clear that the issues were relevant to them.â&#x20AC;? With that in mind, Riml encourages audiences to take in a performance of Henry and Alice: Into the Wild. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to come and pay your hard-earned money to go see a play these days, you should have fun,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would hope that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something in the play to think about, but I promise that (youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll) have a good time.â&#x20AC;?

ARTS & LIFE Q&A with Randy “Elvis” Friskie

Elvis tribute artist Friskie ‘can’t work for cheese’ Tom Zillich

Now staff Twitter @tomzillich

On the phone, Randy “Elvis” Friskie sounded stoked about his upcoming tour of six “soft-seater” venues in the southwest region of B.C. – his first tour in several years. The 12-show tour, which includes a pair of performances at Surrey’s Bell Performing Arts Centre on Saturday, Jan. 12, involves Friskie’s large, Vegas-worthy show band recreating parts of Presley’s landmark “Aloha from Hawaii” concert to mark its 40th anniversary. Friskie, a veteran Elvis tribute artist who lives in Abbotsford, answered a few of the Now’s questions about the upcoming shows, his recent hiatus from touring and his unwavering passion for Mr. Presley’s music: Why are you doing a tour to mark the 40th anniversary of Elvis’ “Aloha from Hawaii” concert? Friskie: “Well, first of all, it’s funny, because someone said to me, ‘You’re doing your 40th anniversary tour? Wow, you’ve been at it a long time,’ and I just laughed, because sure, I’ve been doing this for a long

Veteran tribute artist Randy “Elvis” Friskie returns to Surrey’s Bell Performing Arts Centre for a pair of shows Saturday, Jan. 12, at 2:30 and 7:30 p.m. For tickets ($39.50) and more info, call 604-5076355 or visit BellPerformingArtsCentre.com. time, but not quite that long, you know? It’s the 40th anniversary of Elvis doing it, not mine (laughs). Like, how old do you think I am, man? So yeah, we’re taking what I feel are some of the best Elvis moments and bringing them to the stage – the first half of the show is all 1950s and 1960s and the second half is all the via-satellite show from Hawaii. That was a landmark performance for Elvis, so it’s pretty special. We’re doing something for charity, too – we’re getting jackets and blankets brought in for those who need those things, homeless people. It’s called Phil and Friends, a Christian group. He does those pickups and hands them all out to people.” How long has it been since you played here? It seems like quite awhile. “Locally, it’s been about five years since I’ve done a tour like this in the B.C. area,

I’m sorry to hear about your mother. That must have been a difficult time for you. “I do live for music, but I also live for my family. It was special to have those times with mom toward the end there, so it was a choice I had to make. But I’d always go out and do a few shows to pay the bills, because I don’t have a pension plan doing this, right? I can’t live on royalties.” Growing up, was music a huge part of your life? “My dad played, like, 14 different instruments and I was brought up playing music, along with my brother, who still plays and all that. I love doing it, but I hate see › page 17

because I took off some time when my mom got sick. She had a stroke and I took a hiatus for basically three years – I’d go and do a few big shows here and there but was always back within a couple of days, because I did home-care for her. She passed on a couple years ago now, so it’s been about five, six years since I’ve done something like this locally. And I’m stoked about it.”

the politics of it all, for sure. I’m just a musician, and I love doing Elvis – that’s what I do, and I promise people who come to see me that I will deliver the very best Elvis show they will see.”

Why are there so many tribute acts these days? “At one point, karaoke came in and everyone thought they were a singer who could sing these songs. They buy a cheap Elvis suit and bam! And that’s not a good thing, man, because I heard a story of one concert organizer who said he pays a guy in cheese – he runs a dairy, and the guy will do the show in return for some cheese. I mean, are you serious? I can’t work for cheese.”

‘Elvis’ Friskie at Surrey’s Bell Saturday

It seems like there are more and more people doing Elvis tributes these days. Have you noticed that? “I want to be politically correct here, so there’s a lot of competition – uh, well, there’s a lot of people out there doing stuff as Elvis. I’m not here to say yay or nay to anything else. There’s a lot of people performing as Elvis, but are they competition? Really? I don’t know. I’m not saying they’re bad or anything – there are some that are – but I just focus on what I do. I try to put on the very best show possible, and that’s what I bring to the stage.”

How do you rise above all that and do your thing? “A lot of people have called me the most normal, natural Elvis they’ve seen, which is a huge compliment. People tell me it’s exact, but it’s not exact, no. I do my best in tribute to the man, not an impersonation. There’s a big difference there. And yeah, I sound like him, even when I talk – I mumble a lot, and so did he. That’s just me, how I talk, and my brother is the same way, trust me.… There is, and was, only one Elvis Presley, who I think was the best live performer who ever lived. So I just give people a chance to see what they might have experienced seeing him in concert, live.” tzillich@thenownewspaper.com

ARTS & LIFE The arts

Surrey bashing is outdated If you think there is nothing on offer, and that delivery of the arts in Surrey is a problem (and, of course, it can always be better), then here is a thought for you: If you aren’t part of the solution, then you are a part of the problem.

ArtsScene Melanie Minty Columnist

I

overheard some derogatory comments recently regarding the lack of arts and culture in Surrey. Seriously. That notion is so outdated. Get over it. Just a few short years ago Surrey was one of the designated Cultural Capitals of Canada. With dedicated community groups, and the assistance of arts councils (Surrey and White Rock), the city officials, and programs in the schools, Surrey has a lot to offer in the arts department. So no more Surrey bashing, OK? If you think there is nothing on offer, and that delivery of the arts in Surrey is a problem (and, of course, it can always be better), then here is a thought for you: If you aren’t part of the solution, then you are a part of the problem. There were certainly several events, concerts, shows and exhibitions over the last month that lacked audience and/or participation. If this trend continues, then a vibrant arts and culture scene is just not possible. Check out Surrey Little Theatre, Surrey Arts Centre, Semiahmoo Arts, Arts Council of Surrey, the Bell Performing Arts Centre, the Wheelhouse Theatre at Earl Marriott Secondary, Fraser Valley Gilbert & Sullivan Society, Peninsula Productions and Royal Canadian Theatre Company. And this is just the start of the list. I’ll give you a little sample just to get started. Songs on the Spot is a program beginning at Surrey Arts Centre on Jan. 28. The concept is to sing, laugh and feel joyful. I like it. Very experienced program instructor Alan Marriott will coach you to create instant songs, three-part harmony and backup vocals. It may sound impossible, especially when singing experience is not required. The program runs for six weeks, costs $100, and you need to register by Jan. 14. A free, introductory session is offered on Monday, Jan. 21 from 7 to 9:15 p.m. Although the introductory session is free, participants must register by Jan. 14 to book their spot (www. surrey.ca/register or 604-501-5100). So maybe you are not ready to sing, laugh and be joyful – but maybe you know a young actor wannabe who would greatly benefit from some acting classes being offered at

Surrey Arts Centre. Preteen Acting Extreme will run for eight weeks beginning Jan. 22 (4:30 to 6 p.m., $135). This program, led by instructor Lisa Bunting, is designed for children age eight to 12. Bunting also has a program for teens (age 12 to 16) that includes theatre games and exercises, cold reads, monologues and scene study. Under her expert guidance, students will rehearse scenes and create compositions to be showcased in a final performance for family and friends. Much Ado About Acting will also run for eight weeks, beginning Jan. 22 (7 to 9 p.m., $175, info at www.surrey. ca/register or 604-501-5100). Advance registration is necessary as minimum class size must be reached one week prior to the start date. Take advantage of this excellent class. So you made it this far in the column. Good. Or did I lose you when I mentioned Surrey was a designated Cultural Capital of Canada? Elsewhere, the Irish Club Of White Rock, in association with Semiahmoo Arts, is hosting a series of Irish Poetry Nights, to be held the third Wednesday of each month at Slainte By the Pier Gastrobar, on Marine Drive. Proprietor Jack Sixsmith, who is also a devotee of Irish poetry, will kick off the series on Jan. 16 at 7:30 p.m. by leading an evening dedicated to his favourite Irish poet, Patrick Kavanagh. Volunteers from the Irish Club will assist with readings and also present their favourite poets in subsequent months. The readings are intended for anyone wishing to discover and enjoy Ireland’s poets, delivered in Irish accents and in the comfortable ambience of an Irish pub. To get involved, contact Ray Fynes at 604-542-3667.

ARTS & LIFE Food

Passion for only best balsamic vinegar White Rock-headquartered importers aim to educate people with traditional Italian products Carolyn Cooke

Now staff Twitter @carolyncooke1

B

alsamic vinegar – the real, traditionally made stuff – is a sweet treat, and quite palatable on its own, but you’d never know that by sampling what passes for balsamic vinegar in most food shops and restaurants. That’s why two local men decided to not only launch an import company to bring real balsamic vinegar to Western Canada, they also spend a great deal of their time educating people on how to recognize and use these traditionally made products. Vittorio Castellini and Robert Mesiano started Agrodolce Importers in March last year, headquartered in White Rock, with the goal of offering a traditionally made Italian balsamic vinegar at a reasonable price. “The traditional aging of balsamic vinegar is done in a series of open barrels, so it makes it denser because it evaporates and it also acquires flavours from the woods,” explained Castellini. The one and only ingredient used is grapes – and only certain varietals – that are slow-cooked over a very low heat for days and then put into barrels. That’s the biggest giveaway when looking at the label of a bottle, he said. If it has caramel colouring or sugar, it has been industrially produced and additives are used to mimic the taste and texture of the traditional versions. A quick taste comparison shows the mimicry isn’t usually very successful, but few people even know they’re being had with a cheaply made substitute. “There’s a lot of misunderstanding, misinformation and even outright fraud,” said Castellini. Balsamic vinegar is a protected product in the European Union, meaning there are legal guidelines as to what can and cannot be labelled and sold as traditional balsamic vinegar, what it must look like, its acidity level, colour, and

Famiglia Dodi balsamic vinegar, aged 10 years and brought to local stores by White Rock-based Agrodolce Importers, can be used on fresh fruit, gelato or drizzled on fine cheeses.

I ask people if they want to sample some traditional balsamic vinegar and they say, ‘No, I have some at home,’ and I know they don’t. even density, among other attributes. To carry the EU seal, balsamic vinegar also cannot say how many years it has been aged or in what way, even though these factors are crucial to the traditional production process. That’s because the rules and regulations were put into place only a few decades ago, at a time when there were already a number of large industrial producers on the scene, so the rules reflected that, according to Castellini. However, the traditionally made balsamic vinegar, aged for 25 years, is also certified by a panel to ensure the very best stuff really is as good as the best balsamic vinegars

produced throughout the past thousand years or so. Because it is so time-consuming and expensive to produce, the top-notch certified balsamic vinegar is also the most expensive. One tiny sip reveals why dedicated foodies are willing to shell out some $280 or more for a 100-ml. bottle. And traditional balsamic vinegar is only produced in two small provinces of Italy, in Modena and Reggio Emilia. Producers have tried to make it beyond this region, but it can’t be done. “I ask people if they want to sample some traditional balsamic vinegar and they say, ‘No, I have some at home,’ and I know they don’t,” said Castellini. He and Mesiano had a booth at the Eat Vancouver food expo last summer and offered visitors a taste of different kinds of traditionally made balsamic vinegar. The real thing has a complex flavour, both sweet and bitter, and is used sparingly as a condiment. “There are only 10,000 of these bottles made a year,” he noted. “If people want to spend that kind of money, it’s certified – you don’t have to take my word.” Sadly, due to the EU rules, you can’t know how long any bottle of balsamic vinegar has been aged by reading the label. The three most popular items in the line imported by Castellini and Mesiano, the balsamic vinegar is made in the traditional way, but not for the full 25 years. “We’re not allowed to put an age on these. These are four, eight and 10 years old, and you just have to take our word for it,” said Castellini, referring to the Acetaia Dodi line of Il Buon Condimento, Il Capriccio di Valeria and Famiglia Dodi, respectively. The maker, Ricardo Dodi, is the biggest producer of traditionally made balsamic vinegar and also sits on the panel that certifies the 25-year-old batches. One of the brochures available with these products gives suggestions for how to use the products, such as using the least aged version in salad dressing, although the mediumaged version is better used in Chicken Cacciatore or Petti di Pollo al Balsamico, where it added after the cooking in order to preserve its delicate flavours. Famiglia Dodi, aged 10 years, can be used on fresh fruit, gelato or drizzled on fine cheeses. ccooke@thenownewspaper.com

Cooking

Sauce up your pasta with creativity, not canned stuff OnCooking Chef Dez Columnist

N

o question, people should try their hand at making fresh pasta instead of always relying on purchasing it dry from a bag or box. As for pasta sauces, the most common is the classic tomato sauce. Most people still buy canned or jarred pre-made tomato sauces to don their pasta. Some will at least get creative by adding extra ingredients like onions or garlic, but nothing can take the place of good

rustic homemade batch of tomato sauce. This does not have to be the style that simmers for hours on end either. Many great homemade pasta sauces can start out with a little help from canned diced tomatoes and some tomato paste, and be done in record time. Reduce it down even further at the end (by simmering some of the water content out) and replenish with some whipping cream and you now have a rosé sauce for those special occasions when calorie counting is not on your priority list. Any ground meat (beef, pork, chicken, turkey, lamb, etc.) cooked up at the beginning of the process will magically transform this rustic tomato or rosé sauce into a hearty

meat sauce. Sausage meat can also be utilized in the same manner by removing it from the casings and cooking the same as ground meat. Italian sausage (mild or hot, depending on your tastes) is wonderful for this. A béchamel (white sauce) is a very simple sauce. Don’t let the fancy French culinary name scare you – it’s just milk thickened with flour and butter. Add seasoning (salt, pepper and a pinch of ground nutmeg) and you have an incredible sauce that can be a blank canvas for your favourite cheeses, to be melted in or tossed with bits of grilled chicken. Add garlic and parmesan and you will basically have alfredo sauce.

Oils infused with flavours and seasonings can be the base of a tasty, light pasta coating. Heating olive oil over medium or low heat, and letting ingredients like crushed garlic, chillies and herbs infuse their way in, transforms an ordinary oil into a savoury enhancement. These types of sauces are perfect for less filling side dishes. A batch of seasoned simmered vegetables can also be transformed into a smooth sauce bursting with flavours, with the help of a blender, food processor or hand immersion blender. We actually do one with ground lamb where it is simmered with a number of vegetables and herbs with some red wine. A few good pulses in a blender, at the end

of the cook time, alter it into an amazing pasta sauce. One of the quickest pasta sauces you will ever make is a brownedbutter sauce. Take a hot pan and place a handful of cubes of cold butter into it. Stir, or lift the pan and swirl the melting butter, until the butter foam has just started to brown, and then toss with your favorite pasta. Your favorite fresh delicate herb (basil, oregano, sage) can also be added at the time of the cold butter. Although we have all been taught never to add butter to a hot pan for fear that it will burn, the trick is to remove the “browning” butter before it hits the burning stage. dez@chefdez.com

Four ranked teams head tourney field Michael Booth

Now staff Twitter @boothnow

So who are Surrey’s kings of the court, the sultans of swish, the city’s hoops honchos? We’ll find out beginning Sunday when the 22nd annual Surrey RCMP Senior Boys Basketball Classic tips off in gyms across the city. The tournament is the largest of its kind in the province with 39 teams competing in the junior and senior age categories. That’s a long way from the eight squads that gathered at Queen Elizabeth Secondary for the first RCMP tourney 22 years ago. Tournament organizer Rick Inrig has been building the tournament since the beginning and he can only shake his head at the hoops monster he helped create. “It’s pretty crazy now; there’s going to be over 70 games played next week,” Inrig said. “There were fewer high schools then so that was a factor but it was start. Then we went to 12, then 16, then 20 and it kept growing. Now we have 23 senior teams and cap of 16 teams for the junior tournament. It’s amazing we’ve been doing this for 22 years now.” The tournament serves as the unofficial city championship for senior boys high school hoops, a status that is not lost on the participants. This year’s field features four distinct favourites - White Rock Christian Academy Warriors (ranked fourth in B.C.), Tamanawis Wildcats (fifth), Enver Creek Cougars (8th) and Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers (honourable mention) - setting the stage for hard-fought battles as the tournament progresses. The junior tournament is more akin to the wild, wild west with no clear favourite but numerous longshots with a shot should the ball bounce in their favour. The senior tournament gets underway Sunday in six locations while the junior hit the court for the first time Monday. The semifinals begin at 6 p.m. Friday at Enver Creek Secondary with final slated for 7:45 p.m. Saturday at the same venue. The junior boys title will be settled at noon Saturday at Enver Creek. In addition to the coveted championship banners, players are also eligible for scholarships to help with their postsecondary education. These are awarded at the final phase of the tournament, an all-star game for graduating players held at the end of the competitive basketball season. Last year the tournament awarded 13 scholarships worth $12,000. Follow the tournament on line at www. surreybasketballclassic.com.

The Surrey United Firefighters started off the New Year in much the same fashion as they ended the old one — with a win. The Firemen hit the road Saturday where they blanked Norvan Pacific 3-0 to run their Vancouver Metro Soccer League premier division win streak to five games. Playing with just 11 men and no hope of substitution help in the event of an injury, the defending provincial champions knew exactly what to expect from Norvan since the two teams had faced each other two weeks earlier on the eve of the Christmas break. “It was kind of strange because we had just played them,” said Surrey coach Rob Reed. “Playing a team back-to-back doesn’t happen very often in this league and it’s very hard to win those games because they can still remember what you like to do and what works well against you. So there were a lot of things stacked against us, but full credit to our guys for getting the job done.” Surrey opened the scoring in the 15th minute when midfielder Colin Streckman headed home a pass from Ravinder Jammu. The score stayed that way through halftime but Norvan came out of the break strong thanks to the insertion of former Vancouver Whitecap Martin Nash. The Firefighters weathered the storm and then doused Norvan’s fire when a Streckman shot from 25-yards out found the top corner of the home team’s net double Surrey’s lead.

United then iced the win with a late goal by Jeff Clarke. While Surrey United’s stock is rising, the fortunes of Newton’s Rovers CCBTU continue to tumble. The league’s early season Cinderellas have now dropped six games in a row after being thumped 4-1 by visiting Croatia Saturday. Rizal Ganief opened the scoring for the Rovers on a free kick in the 10th minute but it was all down hill after that as Croatia scored three times before halftime and cruised to the win. Elsewhere, Newton’s ICST Pegasus continued their climb up the standings by passing the Rovers and moving into fifth place thanks to a 1-1 draw with the Hibernians in Richmond. Javid Khan set up Jag Gill for the lone Pegasus goal in Richmond. The Delta Hurricanes closed out the weekend with a hard-fought 1-1 draw against powerhouse West Van at John Oliver Park Sunday afternoon. After a scoreless opening half, West Van finally broke the scoreboard goose egg early in the final frame. The Hurricanes stormed back and created several quality scoring chances that ultimately came up empty. With time winding down in the game, Delta salvaged a point in the standings when playing-coach Steve Millar set up Joey Brar for the equalizer.

They’ll be throwing rocks at houses in Cloverdale next week when the British Columbia’s best women curlers gather for the 2013 edition of the Scotties provincial championships. For the second time in three years, the Cloverdale Curling Club will play host to the event, which begins Sunday and continues throughout the week until the final on Sunday, Jan. 20th at 2 pm. Heading up the talented field is Kelowna’s Kelly Scott rink, which will be chasing its third consecutive B.C. Scotties title. Scott is a five-time provincial champion with a resume that includes Scott Tournament of Hearts Canadian titles in 2006 and 2007, a World Championship title in 2007 and a World Championship bronze medal in 2006. The Scott foursome can expect a strong challenge from Cloverdale’s Marla Mallet rink, a team that finished second to Scott last year on the North Shore. Mallet is herself a former B.C. champion with a wealth of experience in big games. Shaw TV will be televising live at both the semi-finals on Saturday (Jan. 19th) and Sunday’s finale. Tickets are available at the Cloverdale Curling Club (6150 176 Street) for $40 for a full event pass or $5.00 at the door for a single draw daily. Great viewing is guaranteed with ice level seating in special bleachers set up for the event.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Stay ambitious. Several prestige trends culminate now, might lift you on their slender wings. To succeed, be diplomatic, show eager willingness, and tackle your duties. Your career – and life status, even life goals – are changing, mightily, this decade: get on the right side of this (ambition) not the wrong side (anger, resentment, rebellion). You might become a parent soon. Sunday’s happy but useless, so just enjoy. Retreat, rest, contemplate, plan, deal with management types Monday/Tuesday: promotion possible. You shine Wednesday to Friday: start projects, seek favours. Taurus April 20-May 20: This is your last week of a mellow, intellectual, understanding, loving mood. Nothing will upset your equilibrium, except possible friction at home. (Very likely if you’ve been fooling around.) You can reduce domestic strife all month by channelling this intensity into home repairs or other useful avenues. Sunday’s ambitious (or they call you “Sir/Madam” at the restaurant). Forego action. Happiness, entertainment, light romance, popularity – these visit Monday/Tuesday: someone’s interested. Retreat, rest and plan Wednesday to Friday. Your energy and charisma soar Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: Wrap up deep, changeful things – investment programs, sexual affairs, lifestyle changes, health actions, research or detective ventures. These are reaching a peak this week, but they will also lose their “main steam” by Saturday. Sunday’s affectionate, alert, but stick to routine. Your career gets a mild boost Monday/Tuesday: cast your eye on higher-ups, discern what they want. An air of (again mild) celebration comes Wednesday to Friday: social delights, more friends, entertainment, light romance. Retreat Friday eve, Saturday: your energy fades, but a month of joy begins.

Cancer June 21-July 22: The accent remains on relationships, opportunities and opposition. Opposition will be minimal, as others are inclined to appreciate you, to respond graciously. All month, your lustful, financial, and “detective” sides are strong. You can get ahead by combining ambition and your boss’s resources, especially Wednesday to Friday. You can also stir up a storm of sexual consequences anytime this month. (You might feel like such an adventure Sunday, but little will come of it.) A gentle, mellow, intellectual mood flows over you Monday/Tuesday. The weekend’s happy, flirty, friend-filled. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: It’s your last week of drudgery. Just plod on – Saturday (Jan. 19) will bring a completely new trend of fresh horizons, new contacts and opportunities. Meanwhile, perform tasks so they won’t weigh down your future. Sunday brings relationship impulses, but not much result. Dig deep Monday/Tuesday: you can discover valuable information, secrets, money sources or investment ventures. A love relationship can reach deeply into intimacy. Wednesday to Friday brings a gentle, mellow mood, wisdom, love, acceptance of society’s ways. Be ambitious Saturday: meet people late day, eve. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Give romance one more try. If you’ve been batting zeros lately (last two years) it’s because you’ve just entered a huge, whole, new relationship trend, to last 15 years. Right now, you’re at the adjustment, or try-and-see-what-works stage. Instead of being discouraged, throw yourself into your work – February to June, you could take a giant step upward/forward! Then, mid 2013 to mid 2014, you enter the first real romantic year of this huge relationship phase. (If you just fell into a huge, gratifying romance, don’t listen to me.) Monday to Friday emphasize this message.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: This week brings the last “home adjustment” for a while (until April or next December). You’ve made the essential change, the crucial choice – for now. Sunday’s creative, romantic, but leads nowhere. Tackle chores Monday/Tuesday – a productive, mild luck aids you. Relationships jut up from the landscape Wednesday morning to Friday eve. Often, this brings choice or the adjustment mentioned above, but this time the change seems to lie deep; it slumbers (unless you live in Asia or Europe). Mysteries, sexual longings, financial coups and lifestyle changes “whisper” to you Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The accent remains on communications, travel, paperwork, casual acquaintances. You are finally receiving some “pro” or affectionate responses to your queries. Stay close to home or in nature Sunday – DON’T start renovations or home repairs, just relax. Romance, creativity, pleasure, self-expression and charming kids call you Monday/Tuesday. Most systems are “go” for these: in fact, it’s a two-day winning streak. Tackle chores Wednesday to Friday. Be careful what you start Friday afternoon. This eve and Saturday bring relationships, opportunities – and potential opposition. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: This is your last week of dancing around the money tree. Money isn’t your biggest trend this winter and spring (relationships and relocation are) – but July onward will see you either buying a big investment (e.g., a home) or landing a lucky money pot. You’re restless Sunday: travel for pleasure, not practical ends. Be home, relate to kids, garden, mother nature, Monday/ Tuesday. All’s well. Wednesday to Friday brings romantic excitement, though it’s really a sensual attraction. The same days favour creativity, pleasure, sports. Tackle chores Saturday. Travel, soon!

Jan. 13 - Jan. 19 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Your energy, charisma and timing remain high. (In fact, your charisma steps up a notch.) Start communications or travel projects Monday/Tuesday. Start domestic, real estate, retirement or foundational projects – or end situations – Wednesday morning to Friday afternoon. Romance, creative surges, arts, sports, pleasure and luck visit you Friday evening to Saturday. (If a romance does begin now, how long it will last is uncertain.) Money flows to you all month – bank it; don’t spend (except on Jan. 22 for equipment, tools, telephony). Work delays will dissolve soon. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Continue to maintain a low profile: rest, contemplate, plan, reconnect with spirit. Be charitable. Visit institutions, government offices. Attend management meetings. Your energy and pizzazz climb nicely Sunday, but it’s hard to take advantage, so relax. Chase money or make purchases Monday eve through Tuesday – all’s smooth, no lemons. Your chatty side emerges Wednesday to Friday: you feel a bit of wanderlust. Wednesday’s best for friendly or “daily business” meetings. Friday night and the weekend bring weariness, and the end of weariness – a month of personal power begins! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your hopes remain high. The last few weeks have invigorated you with optimism, friendship and romantic possibilities. This week is similar, but it’s the last in your run. Don’t delay fun. Sunday’s tiring and yields no net results, so relax, contemplate. Your energy and charm bounce back Monday/Tuesday.Chase money,buy/sell,and catalogue your possessions (even if this is a mere mental runthrough of what you own) Wednesday to Friday. Avoid big purchases Friday. Casual acquaintances appear Friday night, Saturday – paradoxically, right at the start of a quiet, solitude-prone month. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
