Video producers Alison Soroka and John Banovich are shooting a documentary film that showcases the brutality of domestic violence. The Honest Truth, as the film is titled, is being done with help from the Surrey Women’s Centre and a grant from Surrey City Hall. See the full story on page 3. (Photo: TED COLLEY)

n February of 2010, I was proud to introduce the first issue of an original quarterly publication called Possabilities. And I have been equally proud of every single edition since. Today, I am proud once more to announce that this innovative and heartwarming cross-disability themed publication can be found inside your Now. As you will see in the seventh issue of Possabilities, this publication is groundbreaking. It is truly one of the first newspapers to provide such a broad range of disability related information. Within its pages, we highlight a variety of resources and programs, while showcasing the abilities and lifestyles of people from our own communities. As I related to readers when Possabilities was launched, the motivation for this publication is also a personal one for me, as my sister, Tiffany, has autism and severe developmental delay.

Growing up with Tiffany in my family instilled in me a very real sense of empathy and understanding. I saw first-hand the struggles faced by people with disabilities, not to mention their families. I also learned to appreciate the drive, motivation and resourcefulness that this group of people demonstrates on a daily basis. That’s why I, along with a handful of other dedicated team members at the Now, felt that it was too important to go another day without showcasing the beautiful and inspiring “possabilities” (please note the word is spelled incorrectly for a reason) that exist in our communities. The move to include Possabilities in the Now is an exciting one for me. Please feel free to contact me directly to share your thoughts and ideas.

Briefly

Chadwick faces time for bilking board SURREY – The former Surrey school board associate superintendent who was caught bilking the school district of tens of thousands of dollars pleaded guilty to breach of trust in B.C. provincial court in Surrey on Friday. Robert Edwin Chadwick, 63, faces up to five years in prison for abusing his senior position to defraud the Surrey school district of tens of thousands of dollars. Crown prosecutor Stephen Cooke said Chadwick should receive a sentence of up to two years, which could be served in the community. Chadwick and wife Barbara, who was an administrative assistant with the district, resigned from their positions in 2006 after learning they were under investigation for allegedly taking money from the district’s international education leadership program.

Woman assaulted in North Delta NORTH DELTA – Delta police are hoping to locate possible witnesses to a sexual assault last week. The incident happened on Thursday at about 10:30 p.m. A woman was walking her dogs in the 11400-block of Bond Boulevard when a man came up to her from behind, grabbed her and sexually assaulted her. The man fled, and police could not track him with either a K9 team or Air 1. The suspect is described as a man possibly in his 20s, who was wearing dark clothing. Police are now hoping to talk to two women who were walking in the area at the time of the attack. It is believed they may have passed the victim before the assault.

U.S. ambassador talks border issues in Surrey Ted Colley

Now staff twitter@tedcolley

U.S. Ambassador to Canada David Jacobson talks to reporters at a cross-border symposium on U.S./Canada trade in Surrey Friday. (Photo: TED COLLEY)

SURREY – The Canada/U.S. border stretches 5,525 miles across the continent, marking the line between the two friendly nations. We are the United States’ largest trading partner, and they are ours. We share the same language and, in large measure, the same culture and economy. We need to protect ourselves from exterior threats, as do they, but we also need to keep the border open, as do they, to allow the $1 trillion annual economic exchange between us to continue and grow. Finding that balance between security and free passage was the subject of a symposium held last Friday in Surrey. Stakeholders from both sides of the border, including Premier Christy Clark and U.S. Ambassador to Canada David Jacobson, sat down together to examine the problem and find solutions. The same process is going on across the continent. Earlier this year,

Prime Minister Stephen Harper and President Barak Obama met to begin the bilateral discussions at the highest level, to set out where both countries want to be in terms of border security and the passage of goods and people between our two nations. Jacobson told the Now in a oneon-one interview following his keynote address that the task facing functionaries on both sides of the 49th Parallel is the creation of a road map that will allow us to get there. Aren’t the two goals – increased border security and freedom of movement – mutually exclusive, the Now asked. “No, they aren’t. If you are smart... you can make the border more secure and, at the same time, more efficient,” Jacobson replied. There are, he said, three kinds of people who cross the border. The first are those known to security authorities as RBGs – Really Bad Guys, terrorists, smugglers and others engaged in criminal enterprise. Legitimate travellers come in two categories, Jacobson said, those who

are pre-cleared through programs like Nexus and everyone else. Much more time is needed to process those in the last group and that’s where both security and efficiency can be improved. “You move as many of them as you can to pre-cleared status. Then border officials only have to concentrate on a much smaller pool of people.” Jacobson said both countries have to find ways to share more information more quickly, as well. Jacobson said sharing information between the two countries will not represent a threat to Canadian sovereignty as predicted by some in this country. “That’s a total non-issue. Decisions on what happens in Canada will be decided by the government elected in Canada. The U.S. government cannot force Canada into doing anything not in the best interest of Canadians.” Jacobson said the task now at hand is to develop an action plan. He likened the process to a series of journeys. “Some of those journeys will be short journeys, some will be longer.”

Roots of Empathy is an internationally recognized program that builds empathy and socially responsible behaviour in children. It brings together a family with a young infant and volunteers in an elementary classroom for visits throughout the school year. Students are coached to observe the baby’s development, celebrate milestones, interact with the baby and learn about an infant’s needs and unique temperament. The Seeds of Empathy program, which is modelled on Roots of Empathy, focuses on teaching four- and five-year-olds, and will be expanded into 22 preschools or childcare settings in 2011-12.

SURREY – The Surrey school district is happy to hear Victoria is putting more money into Roots of Empathy. Premier Christy Clark announced Monday that two ministries – Children and Family Development and Education – will put up $800,000 to support the expansion of Roots of Empathy as well as the Seeds of Empathy program for the next five years. The move is part of Clark’s election promise to combat bullying in schools. Theresa Campbell, manager of the district’s Safe Schools program, lauded the funding announcement, adding that she is a fan of the empathy building initiative. “We’re hoping it will help us to resurrect, increase and expand the program into a greater number of schools,” said Campbell. “This is definitely a program I gladly endorse and support.” Roots of Empathy – which has run in more than 30 Surrey schools for about nine

Fast & Fun Easy Cooking - Thermomix Vibrant, wholesome food made easy!

A newly arrived kitchen appliance from Germany, the Thermomix is the most advanced kichen appliance on the market today. It is the result of more than 40 years of German design and innovation and unites the functions of over ten appliances in one compact unit. The Thermomix saves valuable preparation time, money off grocery bills and brings fresh, wholesome food back to home kitchens. Simone’s passion for food and travel began while working in a French bistro during her university years. She met her future husband while travelling through Europe, which led to travelling the world, picking up regional cuisine at each stop, eventually settling in northern Italy. Trained by the many local experts and chefs in her new country, Simone’s 15 years in Italy were a journey of discovery of all the fabulous foods the country had to offer. Although she adored the rich cuisine of the northern Italian area she called home, Simone yearned for more diversity and whole grains in her family’s diet. The Thermomix made it possible to make quick, healthy dishes without sacrificing depth of flavour or hours of her time. From homemade breads to butternut squash soup to spaghetti marinara - even a complicated dish such as risotto - the Thermoix allows any home chef to chop, puree, saute or steam individual ingredients

and then combine and cook it all to create a spectacular and healthy meal quickly and easily. Simone and her family moved to Canada three years ago. Busy establishing the company and settling her three girls into their new surroundings, she found the family was gravitating to the fast food culture of North America. Noticing a difference in her children’s over-all health and behavior, she was compelled to seek out her favourite appliance that she had been forced to leave behind in Italy. Fortunately, a Thermomix distribution office, called Fantan had recently started importing the machines to Canada and was located in Richmond. ‘Too much of the daily diet consists of processed foods heavily saturated with sugar and salt and too many unnatural ingredients’ says Simone. The Thermomix offers a solution, with fast, easy recipes made from natural ingredients easy to source at your local grocery store. With a passion to educate and share her knowledge, Simone teaches new Thermomix owners, both one-on-one and in a group class setting, how to make delicious and healthy meals. The Rustic Gourmet is an extension of my life and values. I love empowering families to grow their own small vegetable garden, prepare meals together and enjoy healthy, high quality natural food. “Mealtime is precious and giving our children the value of a home cooked meal is priceless.

We are pleased to announce that Surrey is now collecting mattresses for recycling.

Mattress Collection Challenges

Surrey’s Response...Recycle It!

On January 1, 2011, Metro Vancouver placed a disposal ban on mattresses as they are operationally difficult to handle and recyclable when properly disassembled. Mattresses disposed of as garbage cannot be compacted – consuming a large amount of landfill space. In addition, the springs within mattresses often become tangled in equipment causing costly repairs. Customers that bring mattresses to regional transfer stations for disposal as garbage are charged $20/unit and are limited to only four (4) mattresses per load.

While Surrey had consequently stopped collecting mattresses via the Large Item Pickup Program as a result of the Metro Vancouver imposed disposal ban, the City has developed a process to recycle old unwanted mattresses. The City of Surrey will accept mattresses and box springs via the Large Item Pickup Program at no additional cost to residents. The collected mattresses will be delivered to a mattress recycling facility where they will be segregated into different materials and shipped to remanufacturing facilities to be processed into new reusable products.

How to Arrange Collection 1. Call Emterra Environmental at 604-635-5478 2. On the day of your appointment (or the evening before), place your mattress/boxspring at your curb. Ensure that your mattress is at the curb by 7:30am. * Please note that this program is available to households that are on the City’s door-to-door waste collection program. Mattresses or box springs will count towards your annual large item pickup limit of 4 items/calendar year.

Judge wants Surrey city council to answer for cabbie’s licence saga Tom Zytaruk

NEW WESTMINSTER – A judge wants Surrey city council to explain to a Surrey cabbie why it has refused to renew his licence before the matter can proceed further in court. The decision, rendered June 6 by Justice Sandra Ballance, is a departure from one Justice Peter Rogers made in a recent similar case in Vancouver. In both cases, the Surrey cabbies had been denied their chauffeur’s licence because of crime-related concerns. The cases, each presenting their own particular nuances, were both heard in B.C. Supreme Court. The latest involved Surrey cabbie Mohinder Singh Johal. The court heard Surrey RCMP had mistakenly cited an impaired driving conviction as the reason for denying Johal’s licence, but the cabbie’s lawyer clarified his client had rather been found guilty of driving without due care and attention under the Motor Vehicle Act and did not have a criminal record. The RCMP then searched Johal’s records, with his consent. Ballance noted in her reasons for decision an RCMP memorandum indicating that Johal had been placed on probation for a year related to a domestic assault case in 2006 where the cabbie allegedly kicked his wife, punched her in the head and threatened to kill her with a knife. The record also indicated Johal hit a parked car in 2007 while driving his cab and was arrested for impaired

driving and refusing to provide a sample, but this was “pled down” to driving without due care and attention. Surrey RCMP’s Fraser MacRae Assistant Commissioner Fraser MacRae concluded that Johal’s chauffeur’s permit “be declined as it is not in the public interest.” Johal appealed to city council. At that hearing, Balance noted, Johal’s lawyer attacked the RCMP memorandum for containing information that was “plainly wrong.” Nevertheless, city council upheld MacRae’s decision and informed the cabbie of its decision through what Ballance referred to as a “cryptic” letter. “In my view, that the factual inaccuracies founding the initial refusal decision and those contained in the subsequent RCMP memorandum had been clarified at the appeal makes it more troubling – not less – that the result of the appeal was articulated simply as the upholding of that original decision, without further explanation,” Ballance reasoned. The RCMP’s initial refusal, she added, “was plainly founded on information that was materially incorrect.” Ballance found the court was “effectively hamstrung” by Surrey’s failing to provide “even a bare bones

explanation” why it decided to uphold the police’s recommendation not to renew Johal’s licence. “In the circumstances” she said, “I conclude that Surrey was required to provide Mr. Johal with basic reasons explaining its decision.” The June 7 issue of the Now featured the case of Surrey cab driver Nasir Ahmed, who petitioned B.C. Supreme Court, unsuccessfully, to have Surrey city council’s decision not to renew his permit overturned. In that case, the cabbie had been accused of committing multiple sexual assaults both on and off the job. Justice Peter Rogers upheld council’s denial following a hearing in Vancouver. One ground on which Ahmed appealed was that the city council, he argued, had failed to provide a reason for denying his licence. Surrey’s lawyer argued that the record of evidence presented at the hearing at city hall is “sufficient” to understand the rejection. Rogers found that Ahmed had to have known what was troubling the RCMP and council. “It is clear that the City of Surrey wishes to not have taxi drivers on its streets who attract serial allegations of sexual assault,” Rogers said, upon rendering his decision May 31. It should be noted that Ahmed had not been found guilty of sexual assault as the charges in each case were stayed either because the alleged victims hadn’t co-operated with police, couldn’t be located or didn’t attend court.

B.C. politics

Tough math will follow cut to HST InTheHouse Keith Baldry

P

oliticians are rightly doubted when it comes to tax promises, so it’s understandable why there is considerable skepticism over the B.C. Liberal government’s promise to cut the HST to 10 per cent by 2014. After all, our political landscape is littered with all kinds of broken promises over taxation. And no political party has clean hands when it comes to sticking to its positions on taxes. So why should Premier Christy Clark’s government be any different than its predecessors? After all, financial and political considerations end up shaping our tax policies, no matter who is running government. And circumstances can change so quickly that they can have an immediate impact on taxes, since that is a government’s main source of revenue. This is how we ended up with the HST, remember.

The worldwide economic recession blew a huge hole in the B.C. government’s revenues almost overnight, and so when Ottawa came calling with a $1.6-billion “incentive” to implement the HST, the Campbell government lunged at the cash. Clark’s proposed twopoint cut in the HST will cost her government about $1.6 billion in lost revenue when it is implemented in 2014. That will be somewhat offset by more than $600 million in corporate tax hikes or deferred tax reductions for small businesses. But it still works out to about a $1-billion hit, effectively wiping out a projected budget surplus in 2014. On the other side of the ledger, her government is insisting it can keep spending increases to less than two per cent a year. Oh really? In the four years before the 2008 recession, the annual spending increase in the government budget was 5.7 per cent. In the two years since then, spending increased an average of 3.5 per cent annually, but this was after all kinds of cuts to programs

and services. So to get spending down even further will presumably require more cuts (and it will also mean no wage hikes for public sector workers, including teachers). When one factors in the insatiable health-care system – which gobbles money at a rate of almost five per cent more each year – the challenge to stick to budget projections becomes even tougher. Add it all up, and it seems that a cut of one point next July seems doable but a further cut of another point in 2014 seems wishful thinking at best. NDP leader Adrian Dix is perfectly correct to be dubious about the tax cuts actually occurring. But skepticism aside, it is certainly true governments of all political stripes have

monkeyed with the sales tax over the years, so one can’t simply rule out the Clark government doing the same. In fact, if she really does follow through with that 2014 rate cut, it will mark the 12th time since the tax was introduced in 1948 that a government has changed the rate (which started out at just three per cent). So perhaps Clark will surprise the skeptics (assuming the HST survives the referendum) and follow through on her promise. Goodness knows politicians can spring surprises when it comes to taxes. The HST is a perfect example. However, in B.C. political history there is another great example of a tax surprise, and it’s one that is not just incredibly rich in irony but also parallels the introduction of the HST. Back in 1987, the Social

Credit government brought in the property transfer tax, which adds almost $10,000 to a house that costs a little more than $525,000 (a tax hit, by the way, that dwarfs the financial impact most people will experience with the HST). The tax has become lucrative to governments – it provides more than $800 million a year – but is hurtful to homebuyers, and makes already expensive homes even costlier. Here’s the parallel to the HST: the tax was introduced

Science-based medicine

No magic, hidden cure for cancer PainfulTruth Matthew Claxton

O

ne of my readers called to yell at me the other day. The caller didn’t give his name, but he had apparently seen my recent column in the Langley Advance about the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. I wrote about how I’m hopeful we can actually cure cancer within my lifetime. My caller was convinced, absolutely certain, that cancer has already been cured. That these cures are, in fact, being concealed by doctors, politicians and the pharmaceutical industry. Sadly, this belief is not uncommon. There are tens of thousands of people in Canada who believe, in whole or in part, that science-based medicine is wrong. For people who have seen a relative suffer

from a serious or fatal cancer, or who have been through surgery, chemotherapy and radiation themselves, this is understandable. We are still at the dawn of effective cancer treatments. Radiation therapy dates to the turn of the last century. Chemotherapy dates to just after the Second World War. Better (but not perfect) are targeted therapies, which attack cancer cells on a molecular level. Those treatments only emerged from the labs in the late 1980s, and were not common until a few years ago. The fact that these treatments have harmful side effects is well known among doctors and nurses who work with cancer patients. They don’t like it, they want real cures, cures that come without damaged immune systems, without scars and vomiting and hair loss. To think otherwise is absurd. But there is a surprisingly large industry dedicated to the idea that doctors and nurses, researchers and bureaucrats, are evil enough to know about secret, magical cures, and to withhold

them from the public. Probably the most public example of such thinking is convicted fraud artist Kevin Trudeau, who peddled his book Natural Cures “They” Don’t Want You To Know About through infomercials. Trudeau got millions to buy his books which contained either directions to go to his website (where you paid more money) or the kind of mumbo jumbo (White clothing makes you healthier! Calcium pills make cancer go bye-bye!) that a nine-year-old could see through. There are dozens of lower-level examples, including a man in my home town who has spent years selling ozone machines, again claiming that ozone can cure cancer. Always, in their pitches, they talk about Big Pharma, or a mysterious cabal that is profiting from pain, suffering and death. Who are the “they” who are keeping us sick and dying, according to the conspiratorial view? There are, according to the Canadian Oncology Societies, about 330 medical oncologists in this country working with

cancer patients. Add to that hundreds of specialized surgeons, about 1,500 oncology nurses, more than 1,000 GPs who deal with cancer, another 1,000-plus oncology pharmacists and 500 haematologists. Just in Canada, there are thousands of people who might be expected to know that about these mythical treatments – but who keep them secret. It implies that there are tens of thousands of people who are either immoral monsters, or dupes. It’s not plausible, and it’s not true. If you get sick, and you want to clutch a crystal or chant or have your aura meddled with, go ahead. It’s your body and it’s your money and it’s your right to do whatever you please with both. But please, please go to a real doctor as well. Science-based medicine is far from perfect. But it’s the only way we’ll get to a real cure. Matthew Claxton is a reporter and columnist for the Langley Advance.

Kirmac Collision & Autoglass has given $120,000 to the B.C. Children’s Hospital Foundation. The contribution is part of the company’s charitable program, Kirmac Cares for Kids, which donates a percentage of income from each vehicle repair to the foundation. “As a proud family-owned business that’s operated for nearly 40 years, it gives us great pleasure to be able to give back to the kids,” said Kirmac’s CEO Ian McIntosh. “Our customers have been a key contributor to this program and we hope they will continue to support it and help us make a difference every year for those who need our help the most.” The Kirmac Cares for Kids program launched last year in all of the company’s 10 Lower Mainland locations, including the Surrey outlet. The donation also includes contributions from Kirmac employees through activities such as Jeans Day Friday and regular payroll deductions. B.C. Children’s Hospital provides care for the B.C.’s most seriously ill or injured children, including newborns and adolescents. The hospital also provides vital specialized health services that may not be available elsewhere in the province. The cheque was presented during the B.C. Children’s Hospital Foundation Miracle Weekend telethon June 4 and 5 when a total of $17.9 million was raised for the cause.

The 10th Annual Coast Capital Savings Charity Golf Tournament teed up big support for depression research and treatment. Doctors and scientists who work under the Institute for Mental Health umbrella will get a boost to the tune of $200,257, thanks to the duffers. Coast Capital is a known leader in addressing mental illness in the workplace and its annual golf tournament is one of the ways it raises awareness about the issue. “The whole person comes to work each day,” said Jay-Ann Fordy, chief human resources officer. “If an employee is suffering as a result of mental illness, it not only affects their personal lives, but also their working relationships and ability to fully contribute in their jobs. We have to throw down the stigmas and start playing a role in the identification and treatment of mental illness. It’s our responsibility as an employer to help so that we have healthy, happy employees.” According to the B.C. Business and Economic Roundtable on Mental Health, by 2020 depression will be one of the leading causes of work years lost in the global economy through human disability and premature death.

Valedictorian’s vision for a career is helping others with sight At Douglas College, South Surrey’s Lindsay Terry has graduated as valedictorian with a Diploma in Advanced Opticianry, Contact Lenses, and Refraction Technologies. “I knew I wanted a career where every Lindsay Terry day I would go home feeling like I made a positive impact on someone else’s life,” Terry says. “Helping people gain better vision is very rewarding.” A passion for eye care and a willingness to push herself beyond her comfort zone have

helped Terry get to where she is today. “I’m a person who likes to do the things I excel at, and avoid all the rest. But this just isn’t rational, and I needed to remind myself that I’m a smart, capable individual who is limited only by own doubts.” Douglas College is the only public college in B.C. that offers a Dispensing Optician program.

Attention Lower Mainland Home Owners: 56 of you are about to make an important financial decision...

“Frustrated Contractor ‘Giving Away’ $4946.00 Furnaces for $1181 with Off-Season Central Air ...” (“This is the Hottest AND Coolest Deal of the Century” ... especially if your furnace is over 8 years old) Dear Friend I’m about to make you a deal that’s hard to refuse if you’ve got an “older” (and probably less than optimally efficient) furnace. I’ll replace your old furnace AND heat pump as a “package deal” for at least $3136.00 less than you would pay any other time of the year. Sound too good to be true? It’s not and here’s why. I’m making you what sounds like an unbelievable offer because it actually makes good sense for my business. And you come out a winner, as well! You see, I know from experience that in my slowest months I actually end up losing money ... then I have to spend the rest of the year trying to make up for it. Right now, I have no reason to believe 2011 will be any different.

with the manufacturer, and then committing to buying 56 systems outright, I got BOTH the furnace AND the heat pump at a price that would have made Sam Walton proud. This means when you buy one of these 56 new, premium-quality heat pumps I will “give” you the furnace and ask you to pay only the $1181 in labor it costs to install your furnace. Pick up your phone right now Simply call me at 946-1000 at anytime so I can come out and measure your home (to see if I’ve got the proper size unit). Remember ... I’ve got only 56 matched systems in 3 sizes so you’ll want to let me know VERY SOON that you’re interested. When these 56 systems are gone, they’re gone, and this offer is null and void. Call me right now so we can get the ball rolling!

That’s why I’ve decided to give up trying to make a profit during these months and minimize my losses ... so I can come out ahead the rest of the year.

As part of the deal, I’ll show you how much the heat pump costs ... how much the furnace WOULD have cost ... and your savings when you buy your new heat pump and furnace as part of this special offer. The price I show you will include all installation materials and labor. There’s no fine print, nothing left out.

So here’s how I can make the incredible offer at the top of this letter.

Earlier I said that making you this amazing offer is also good business for me

Every year the biggie furnace manufacturers guesstimate how many furnaces to produce. Since there’s no way of knowing what the weather will be like and other factors that affect sales, these guys always have leftover inventory they have to hold onto until the next heating season.

The way I look at it, by letting YOU win big now, I’ll win at the end of the year. And I won’t have to “make up” for the lost sales during my slowest months.

I saw a great business opportunity in this and went to one of these biggie companies (they won’t allow me to use their name in this letter) and contracted for the purchase of 56 of these furnaces that were going to just be sitting around. Plus, I bought 56 heat pumps all in the 3 most popular sizes used in Lower Mainland homes. Because of the number I bought and the time of year I purchased them, I got an unbelievable deal ... rock-bottom prices. Don’t get me wrong - these are brand-new, top quality, 2011 models. Not “seconds.” Not “blems.” Not builder-grade. These are premium furnaces and heat pumps fresh from a name-brand factory with a full factory warranty. How to Get Your Name Brand Furnace for Virtually Nothing By putting together this furnace-plus-heat pump package (I call it the “Hottest AND Coolest Deal of the Century”), going through some heavy negotiations

I figure if I make you an absolutely irresistible offer .. if your furnace is pushing 8 years or more ... and if I barely mark up the price I paid, I’ll accomplish 2 major objectives that will allow me to reduce my losses the rest of the year. I’ll be able to ... • Pay my overhead (rent, utilities, insurance and taxes) during the slow period • Keep my service & installation technicians busy enough to pay them to work instead of sit at home. As you can see, when you take me up on my “Hottest AND Coolest Deal of the Century,” EVERYONE IS A WINNER! And by the way, there’s no obligation when you have me come out to measure your house and explain the installation If you decide you don’t want to take advantage of this incredible deal (although I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t want to save this kind of money), it’s no problem. You’re not obligated in any way. In fact, just for taking time to read this letter and having me out to survey your house ... I’ll give you a Very Special Free Gift Coupon ($50 value). Why? Even if we don’t do

business together now, I want you to remember us in the future. If you’re thinking a new furnace (& heat pump) isn’t in your budget - don’t worry! You don’t have to pay me right now Because I’ve tried to think of every reason possible why you WOULDN’T take me up on this spectacular offer, I’ve even made arrangements for a super bank rate financing plan. And I’m not “marking up” the interest rate like so many other companies do. While I can’t promise you this, it’s possible that with this financing plan your monthly investments in a new system could be more than paid for by the savings you see on your monthly utility bills. My Disappointment-Proof Guarantee Talking about lower utility bills, I’m so sure you’ll see at least a 25% cut in your heating and cooling bills (in reality, it may be more like 35%+), if you don’t I’ll pay you twice the difference for 2 years. Not only are you getting a new, first-quality furance virtually free, plus a first-quality heat pump at a great price, I guarantee you’ll lower your heating and cooling bills by at least 25% or I’ll pay you double your savings for 2 years. (This alone should convince you that these systems are some of the very best quality and most efficient available). But you’ve got to act fast ... call me at 946-1000 right now! This offer ends June 24th no matter what Don’t wait to call me. Here’s why. I have only 18 of each of the 3 sizes. When all of the air conditioners are sold and all the furnaces “given away” in a certain size, the “Hottest AND Coolest Deal of the Century” is over. And if I still have any of the 56 systems left on June 24th, this offer still ends. The reason is that my business only slows down for a short time. Since these furnaces cost me so little, if I’ve got any left, I’ll sell them next winter at last year’s prices and still come out ahead. So call me right now at 946-1000 Thanking you in advance, Scott Campbell Owner P.S.

Summer Supercharge at Dorsal Academy

Local realtor Chris Shields is among those who will drop their drawers to “uncover the cure” for below-the-waist cancers, including prostate, ovarian and colorectal. He’s participating in the annual Underwear Affair, a 10K run hosted by B.C. Cancer Foundation on July 9. Shields’ goal is to raise $10,000 for the cause through pledges and fundraising events, including his educational “homebuyers’ boot camp” June 16 at Langley Events Centre. Admission fees to the evening event are donated to the cancer foundation, and donations of $20 or more qualify attendees for a tax receipt. For event info, see www.homebuyersbootcamp.ca. Shields said he’s involved in Underwear Affair as a way to honour John Armeneau, a realtor in the Fraser Valley who died of colon cancer. “He was an outstanding and highly respected realtor who did everything he could to help develop the profession,” says Shields, who works with the Sutton real estate company.

At this boot camp event, Shields will demonstrate a new “app” for iPads and iPhones that generates a map showing all the homes in a given neighbourhood that match a buyer’s search criteria.

GARDEN CONTEST IN DELTA

Kids in Delta are encouraged to grow gardens for great prizes. Mayor Lois Jackson sponsors the third annual Children’s Garden Contest, for kids age five to 16 who live in the municipality. “Whether you grow a balcony garden, container, garden, patio garden, butterfly garden or vegetable garden on a small urban lot, all gardens are eligible,” says the contest advisory. “Just grow a garden this summer and send a date-stamped photo along to show how it looks between Aug. 1 and Sept. 12. The mayor will look at all of the pictures sent in and pick the top three gardens from each category.” For more contest details, visit www.corp. delta.bc.ca/gardencontest or call 604-9464141.

FATHER’S DAY

061411

A18

Your dad doesn’t own a cellphone, use email or purchase items online. He often sighs wistfully aloud, remembering “the way things were” and scoffing when you momentarily stop talking with him to check a text message. Your dad is a technophobe and no matter how hard you try, he doesn’t share your views on the conveniences of new gadgets and technology. This Father’s Day, instead of shelling out more cash on a new device he’ll never use, consider these ideas that will bring him comfort instead of stress. ❚ Books and magazines. Make note of novels, magazines and series that dad enjoys and buy him the latest copy or a magazine subscription. If dad likes one author in particular, visit the author’s website to see if he or she will be on tour for a reading or autograph signing. ❚ Concert or sports tickets. Dad will enjoy quality time with you as he enjoys his favourite musician or sports team. ❚ Class enrolment. Has dad expressed

interest in learning how to fly a plane? Get him a flight simulation package or flying lessons. Does dad want to learn how to impress mom out on the dance floor? Ballroom dance lessons for both should do the trick. Give the gift of learning to your dad so he can pick up a new skill. ❚ Charitable gift donation. If dad has everything he really needs, honour him by donating to a cause he’s passionate about. Christian Children’s Fund of Canada offers items like business loans for other dads in developing countries so they can support their families, or a well to provide clean water to an entire community. Then personalize a card to show him how he has helped others – just avoid sending an ecard. You and your father may have different thoughts on whether technology has made things better or worse for our world. Still, one thing that hasn’t changed is the need to cherish your father on June 19 and spend time thanking him for his role in your life.

Baseball

Woeful weekend for premier teams Michael Booth

Now staff twitter@surreynowsports

The sun was shining but local ball players were in a foul mood as Surrey and North Delta teams combined to post a miserable two wins and eight losses in weekend B.C. Premier Baseball League action. The lone bright spot on the local basepaths was in Whalley where the Fraser Valley Chiefs split a pair of doubleheaders. The Chiefs beat the visiting Parksville Royals 8-0 and 7-6 on Saturday only to come up empty in a pair of games Sunday in Victoria where they lost 7-0 and 11-3 to the host Mariners. “It’s two steps forward, one step back I guess,” said Chiefs coach Ernie Hawkins. “We’re still having problems with inconsistency and that comes from not having a steady lineup. It seems like we have guys who are hurt or have other

commitments every week. We’re playing guys where they don’t normally play and that affects the results. Looking back to the start of the year, I haven’t used the same infield two games in a row.” Saturday was a good day for the Chiefs, thanks to a sweep of the visiting Royals. Caleb Lefebvre pitched a complete game shutout in the opener, fanning a dozen Royals while walking just one. At the plate, Jordan McComb and Dylan Rehmke each belted a triple while Declan Murphy and Jovan Ewusie chipped in with doubles. The Chiefs worked overtime in the second game, as they needed extra innings to subdue the Royals. In bottom of the 11th, McComb walked and then advanced to second on a bunt by Ewusie. A passed ball sent McComb to third and he scored the winning run on a single from Brody Hawkins. In Victoria Sunday, the Chiefs mustered

just three hits in the shutout loss in the opener. Game 2 wasn’t much better as the Mariners punched in four runs in the first two innings and then put the game out of reach with a five-run outburst in the sixth. The North Delta Blue Jays had a day to forget Saturday when the Langley Blaze burned them for a pair of lopsided wins. North Delta’s problems started before the team even met at the park as scheduled starter Jeff Bouchard was out of action after injuring his thumb horsing around with a volleyball in the gym at school. The Jays backup plan evaporated when emergency starter Jordan Callow became physically ill in the middle of the first inning and had to leave. The results were predictable against the powerhouse Blaze as Langley hammered North Delta 13-2 in the first game and 8-1 in the second.

While the Jays are trying to put Saturday behind them, the White Rock Tritons are trying to forget the entire weekend after losing a pair of doubleheaders. On Saturday the Tritons hosted the North Shore Twins at South Surrey Athletic Park where they came away empty-handed from a two-game set. In Game 1, the Twins bolted out to a 6-0 third inning lead and cruised to a 9-5 win. Game 2 was much closer until North Shore broke open a 2-1 game with five runs in the sixth inning and won 7-2. Sunday saw the Tritons play a twin bill with the Cardinals in Abbotsford. The first game was a defensive marathon until the Cards scored in the bottom of the eighth to secure a 2-1 win. Game 2 was just as dramatic as the teams once again battled into the eighth inning before Abby pushed across the winning run for a narrow 4-3 victory.

Gymnastics

Gymnasts secure Games berths Two Surrey Gymnastics Society gymnasts used the final meet of the season to secure positions on the B.C. team that will compete in the upcoming Western Canada Summer Games in August in Kamloops. Competing in the Team B.C. Trials June 5 in Kelowna, Sullivan Heights Secondary student Malcolm Herbert punched his ticket to Kamloops with an outstanding performance in the boys’ national youth category. Herbert, 15, captured the all-around title after winning gold for the rings and vault, silver for the parallel bars and bronze for the floor exercises and high bar. Teammate Khalil Dhanji, a 14-yearold Johnson Heights Secondary student, finished eighth in the all-around

rankings. He will be a second alternate for the Western Canada competition. On the girls’ side, 14-year-old Sofia Savkovic placed third in the all-around standings for provincial 5 novice gymnasts. Savkovic won gold for the bars and was fifth on the floor to join Herbert on the B.C. team in Kamloops. In non-qualifying competition, 13year-old Emily Carroll took first in the all-around standings for the provincial 3 novice category. Teammate Marina Szabo, 12, won gold for the bars and silver for the floor to wind up fourth overall, three spots ahead of another SGS entry, 12-year-old Clarissa Rempel. Nicaela Little, 12, was sixth overall in the provincial 2 novice category while

Lily Rio, 11, fifth in the all-around rankings for provincial 2 tyro. Canadian Championships A week earlier, SGS sent four members to the Canadian Championships in Charlottetown, P.E.I. Surrey’s best result came in the high performance tyro category where Gordie Kordas, 16, finished fifth in the all-around standings. In the national youth category, Herbert claimed bronze on the vault and finished seventh in the all-around ratings. In the same category, Dhanji placed 36th overall. In high performance argo, Nicolas Apostol, 12, placed 13th on parallel bars and 15th on the floor.

If you feel you have to be watching every minute of the upcoming US Open at Congressional in Bethesda, Maryland we should see a run of all things breakfast at our local stores before the start on Thursday. Coverage begins at 7 am Pacific Daylight Time and you should catch a few of the Canadians, which sad to say, are not playing in the same group. It would have been a natural to put them all together. Here’s the story on our Canadians — approximate times are Pacific. Adam Hadwin for Abbotsford is going off at 6:01 a.m. Jon Mills at 11:30 a.m. Wes Heffernan is among the final groups going off at hole 10 at 11:54 a.m. Some of the other groups: No 1, 2 and 3 in the world are all playing together; Luke Donald, Lee Westwood and Martin Kaymer will tee it up at 5:06 a.m. our time. Others include the best of Italy; the two Molinari brothers and the 18-year-old sensation Matteo Manassero at 10:35 a.m. I like this threesome: Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson and Phil Mickelson at 10:35 staring on hole 10. What about the course? It is the Congressional Country Club’s Blue Course in Bethesda and if you remember the course from the open in 1997 they have added 300 yards and in a word it’s long: 7,574 yards long and that’s the second-longest for the Open. Torrey Pines was the longest at 7,643 yards And finally, Steve Williams (Tiger Woods’ longtime caddy) has taken on Australian Adam Scott for the US Open with Tiger’s pull out due to injuries. There has been a lot said about Steve’s complicity in Tiger’s affairs, which he has denied from the start. Tiger is not the sharing type and I wonder is this is opening the door for a change in caddies. Both say not. *********************************************** Harrison Frazar is about to turn 40. In 355 PGA tournaments he failed to win. With his nerves jangling and with victory in sight all he had to do at the St. Jude Classic in Memphis on Sunday was par home on 18. He pulled the shot into the water and found himself in playoff with Robert Karlsson of Sweden. As fate would have it, Frazar won, which took a very big monkey off his back and put a million bucks in his pocket. He is another journeyman who has been out struggling for a long time and had been thinking of packing it in of late — he will certainly delay that decision. He also has qualified for the US Open, so Frazar is enjoying the best two weeks of his golfing life. Canadians were right in it. Stephen Ames had his second top-10 showing of the year, finishing in eighth spot, with David Hearn dropping down to 47th. Graham de Laet, who is returning from back surgery, did not make the cut. *********************************************** At the second Canadian stop on the Canadian Tour, a Canadian stood on top of the podium. Roger Sloan of Merritt, just down the road from the Rivershore Golf Course in Kamloops where the Western Championships were played, collected first money. In fact three Canadians were there for a one, two, three finish. Stuart Anderson of Sooke and Scott Hawley from Ottawa rounded out the podium. Nick Taylor of Abbotsford, who is fast improving since he turned pro, finished tied for fourth. Enjoy the golf. Phil You can reach me at preimer@canwest.com

Here's How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a Sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

att Forster has 115 reasons to be proud. The 27-year-old Langley City resident has dropped 115 pounds in the last couple of years by getting into a daily exercise regime and changing his eating habits. He continues to impress his family, considering that his parents Judy and Brad were told years ago that their autistic son would accomplish nothing in this life. “Matthew’s achieved a level of independence that 10 years ago, we wouldn’t have thought possible,” said his father Brad.

Forster has defied expectations throughout his life. Now he’s turned his sights to the B.C. Cancer Foundation. “I’m going to Seattle on the big bikes,” he explained. Forster is cycling in the Ride to Conquer Cancer June 18 and 19, going some 200 kilometres from Vancouver to Seattle. He’s riding for a very personal reason. “My auntie Linda died. She lives in heaven now,” he said. His beloved aunt Linda Rowell, a teacher at Uplands Elementary for 24 years, died Dec. 24, 2010, of esophageal cancer 18 months after being diagnosed.

Forster set his mind to doing something about cancer and set upon the bike ride. His desire to help others isn’t new, but his weight loss and related love of exercise have made more things possible. He’s taken on various challenges in recent years, whether it’s being a marshall at the White Rock Terry Fox Run, where his parents help out, or raising almost $300 and running in the event. “His autism worked to his advantage in his training,” explained Joey Emanuels, a program assistant with the Langley Association for Community Living (LACL). see AUTISM, page 10

ne local family learned a harsh parking lot lesson in downtown Chilliwack recently: Even a medical emergency isn’t an excuse to not pay. Nineteen-year-old Melissa McLean dropped her 20-year-old sister Laura off at Liquidation World one day in April and went to the Scotiabank down the street. Laura has had epilepsy since she was six and, like many epileptics, has auras, which are brief, electrical brain discharges that often precede more serious seizures. According to the women’s mother, Christine, Laura called her sister warning she was going to have a seizure in the store. Melissa raced over, couldn’t find a place to park on the street and so parked in the Diamond Parking lot on the old Safeway property. By the time they came out of the store – just five minutes later, according to Christine – Melissa had a $61.60 parking ticket and there was no attendant in sight.

But when Christine called Diamond Parking to explain the situation, she was met with not only skepticism – something even she understands must be common for a parking company – but downright hostility. “The girl said ‘You should have paid for the ticket. It’s your responsibility as a driver to make sure you pay for your parking,’” Christine said. The Diamond Parking employee was ag-

gressive and so Christine asked to speak to her manager. She was given a Surrey phone number where she spoke with a “Kim” who Christine said was even more aggressive. “She wasn’t a very nice person,” Christine said. “When she talked to me, it was like I was being scolded... I felt she was calling me a liar. She said ‘people with epilepsy don’t know they are having seizures.’ And so I got nowhere with her.” Eventually the ticket was reduced to $26.25, but at this point it was no longer about the money and Christine wouldn’t back down. “Having a child with epilepsy I have had to fight the school system her whole life,” she said. “Basically at age six they said don’t bring her back to school until you can get her under control. I have had to learn to be a fighter for her. I still kind of have that in me.” So Christine started sending emails: to the Chilliwack Times, to city hall, to ICBC, to Safeway and to executives at Diamond.

Only then did she finally get a response. Mike Poirier, regional vice-president of operations, called Christine and agreed to kill the ticket. Poirier told the Times that he didn’t know how long Melissa was parked in the lot and he didn’t know if Laura was having an epileptic seizure. “I’m not suggesting that she was lying, I’m not suggesting she was telling the truth. I really don’t know,” he said. Poirier said he cancelled the ticket not because she contacted the Times but because of the time spent by his employees on the matter. “Part of my motivation is she has already burned up a fair amount of our time and it all but became a nuisance matter,” he said. McLean said she was happy the ticket was resolved but not with the hassle she had to go through to get it resolved. “If it had been handled differently the outcome would have been a lot better,” she said. “It wasn’t about the money.”

avid and Sharon Moxon are graduates of a ground-breaking learning program new to the North Shore. Designed for people with memory challenges and their partners, North Shore Memories and More takes the focus off the condition and places it on the individual. “When we heard about the program, we thought, ‘This could be really interesting. Here is something we can do together,’” Sharon said. In 2000, the Moxons realized their longterm plan to retire to the West Coast, choosing North Vancouver to be close to friends and family. They were living an active, outdoor life, taking on new experiences and making new friends. Then, in 2008, David was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. Often, a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia disrupts people’s lives. As they focus increasingly on the condition, social habits tend to fall away. Not so for the Moxons. They made it their priority to maintain their lifestyle, staying connected with family and friends, continuing with hiking and biking, tennis and travel. In Mexico last year they found Luna, “a Mexican rescue dog,” said Sharon. “No, no,”

David and Sharon Moxon reflect on their experiences with North Shore Memories and More, a social recreation program for those with memory challenges and their Lisa King Photo family and friends, with facilitator Julie Dorsemaine (right). David clarified, “Luna is a rescue dog from Mexico.” Luna is part of the family, her care shared between the two, with Sharon taking on training and David in charge of walks. After David was diagnosed, the couple educated themselves about resources and community programs, linking up with the

Over the last 20 years, Kwantlen’s Job Placement Services for People with Disabilities has successfully helped more than 2,000 employers meet their recruiting needs. Our goal is to match your job requirements with an individual’s demonstrated skills for a successful placement.

What can we do for you? • Our services are offered to you (the employer) at NO COST • We provide access to pre-screened and job-ready employees • We can match your hiring needs for either full-time, part-time, casual or on-call employees • Government funded supports and resources can be negotiated if necessary

Employer Testimonial “After many years in the restaurant business, I have tried many different job placement programs with little success... until now. I feel it is the special attention given by the Job Placement Specialists with Kwantlen Polytechnic University that has made the difference. Many thanks for helping us find a great team member.” –Mark Bos at Eastside Mario’s Restaurant in Langley, B.C.

ron have created for themselves. Information, resources and referrals are provided throughout the program, but memory is not the main focus. Every aspect of the program is designed to stimulate and encourage participation. A sense of humour, for example, is not lost along with memory, though it may change. “That’s why the group is so good,” said Sharon. “So much of the person is still there inside and there is so much they can do. We’re all at different stages in the journey but everyone is equally engaged and involved in sharing ideas and opinions. We enjoyed every moment of the program but the camaraderie with the other participants was so valuable. It’s hard to explain what it means to sit around a table with a group of people and laugh. “This is a happy story for us,” said Sharon. “Memories and More brought laughter and lightness to our lives. It brought us new friends and new experiences to share with them. Our hope is that by sharing our story, it will spark an interest in others to try this.” The North Shore Memories and More program, part of the Supporting Caregivers Project, funded by the federal government’s Social Development Partnership Program, runs at Silver Harbour Seniors Centre.

They danced for kids who can’t dance

S

hoppers and staff in Maple Ridge’s Haney Place Mall had no idea what they were about to witness. As if from nowhere, a group of about 150 kids gathered around the centre court, talking amongst themselves and hanging around, and then the sounds of Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” filled the air. The kids threw off their jackets to reveal matching white T-shirts, and all started dancing in unison. A crowd quickly gathered around to watch and take pictures. Then as the song ended, the kids disappeared as quickly as they had arrived. This April 13 flash mob was the brainchild of the School District 42 Student Advisory Council (DSAC), who held its Celebration of Respect (COR) day on April 13. Miranda Tymoschuk, a Grade 9 student at Thomas Haney Secondary, was one of the main organizers of the event. “Just having everyone all together all for the same thing,” she said about the day, “learning and having fun. But the flash mob was pretty awesome,” she said with a laugh. Miranda had already been raising money for CURE International through its Dance For Kids Who Can’t program, and thought

A group of 150 students dance in Maple Ridge’s Haney Place Mall as a flash mob. Amy Judd Photo The students wanted to “dance for kids who can’t dance.” this would be a perfect topic for DSAC’s COR day. Organizers agreed, and kids from all over the district spent the day learning about what it is like for kids in developing countries who are born with disabilities that are

easily fixed by surgery, but there is no money available. CURE provides the money for those surgeries and works with kids through programs such as the COR day. “There’s all sorts of people around you,” said Miranda, “and everybody is different, so

it gives you the chance to learn about something they wouldn’t normally get to.” Kyle Warmington, the Dance For Kids Who Can’t director for CURE International, flew out from Michigan for the day to take part and make a promotional video to show other schools across North America. He not only showed the kids what it would be like if they weren’t as fortunate as they are, but was also inspired by what he saw on Wednesday. “My job as a director is to find more Mirandas,” he said. “I want to understand what Miranda is, and inspire other students to show them they can do this. They can make a difference.” “It was really successful,” said Grade 12 organizer Alexandra McKeown. “Especially the flash mob. I think the day went really really well and I’m really proud.” For Miranda, overhearing the students talking about the day was the most rewarding for her. “These kids had really learned something and are really going to make a difference,” she said. “Just them being there at the COR project shows that they want to make a difference but hearing what they were saying about it all was so cool.” For more information and how to help, go to cure.org/dsac42.

Cycling more than a pastime The Roadie Scholar

W

hy do bad things happen to good people? Why is it the people with challenges that dwarf our own offer the most profound lessons on living a full life? I wish I knew. When we met for the day’s ride his sporadic tremors and lack of control over his extremities made the task of even getting his sunglasses on a challenging proposition – he unintentionally threw them across the sidewalk. This was a brief glimpse into the day-to-day life of my good friend James. To see him walking down the street you would take a second glance, feel sorry for him and think to yourself, ‘Gosh, it would suck to have Parkinson’s disease.” To see him cycling you would not look twice because he is just another roadie – a strong one, too. Inching toward 40, James has a long and formidable journey ahead, but he does not want your pity, he just wants to ride. On an open stretch of road James wanted to hammer it; I was game. Our average speed was creeping up to 40 kilometres per hour and we were holding steady. My heart was starting to beat faster and my mind was focused on the push; I forgot that at my half-wheel was a man

who has difficulty walking. With his cycling shoes clipped to his pedals and his hands comfortably resting on the hoods, he was as composed and fluid. He probably will never forget he has Parkinson’s disease, but there is no disputing he can escape it while riding his bike. I witnessed it. James made me realize my love of cycling is shallow. There is no end; to pedal my bike is a means to not much more than enjoyment, fitness and time spent with good people. To James cycling is all of those things, but it is also so much more. It is therapy, relief and a critical component of his treatment regiment. These combine to underwrite a very profound respect for the sport. I have a passion for cycling, but what cycling does for me has insignificant meaning alongside what it does for James. We cannot go through life feeling sorry for people who do not feel sorry for themselves. I do not get the impression James feels shortchanged with his one shot here on earth; in part, that is why he is an inspiration. He is not interested in being the victim of anyone’s good deed. He is aware of his boundaries, but within those boundaries he plays hard. I am a roadie because I wear tights, have a fast road bike and ride a lot. James is a roadie because he wears tights, has a fast road bike and rides a lot. However, the difference between James and I is he will always have more heart in the game, that makes him more of a roadie than I will ever be.

Main Entrance to Surrey Memorial Hospital moving to east side Effective June 17 the north entrance and lobby to Surrey Memorial Hospital, accessed from 96 Avenue, will be under construction and access will be limited. For patients attending units in the north area that require wheelchair access, a wheelchair-accessible entrance is available through the ramp from the adjacent parkade. The main hospital entry is now at the east side of the hospital near the BC Cancer Agency Fraser Valley Centre, accessed from 138 Street. The temporary east main entrance will be in effect for approximately 18 months as we build a new two-storey lobby off of 96 Avenue, as part of Surrey Memorial Hospital redevelopment and expansion. Paid surface parking is available by the temporary east main entrance. Entrance to the Emergency Department remains the same. Work is under way for a new public entrance to the Emergency Department on the south side of the hospital, off 94A Avenue, to open in July. Due to several construction projects in the area, we recommend that patients and visitors to the hospital allow themselves extra time to find parking before their appointments. Thank you for your patience as we embark on the largest renovation and expansion of Surrey Memorial Hospital since it was founded in 1959.

Flick offers insight into autism Kim Rose Viewpoint

“D

ifferent but not less.” I felt this was the most important line in the Oscar-w inning movie Temple Grandin. With more than 20 years of experience working in the field of disabilities, I tend to get nervous when books, TV shows and movies depict a person with any kind of disabilit y. Often, they have misguided, misinformed or, at best, only gave viewers some partial truths about people with disabilities. I think these projects are beginning to get it right – Temple Grandin being one of them. Grandin, who created the more humane system of directing cattle into slaughter houses, did so because of her unique skills afforded to her by having autism. The movie offers the unique perspective of seeing the world through the gifted visual mindset of someone with Asperger’s or autism. At times, the true talents of people on the autism spectrum are not taken seriously because they can lack social skills, are unaware

of social cues and physical touch can create anxiety, leading at times to behaviours. According to the Autism Society of B.C., “Autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life. It is currently believed to have a genetic basis that affects the neurological development of the brain, though some theories connect autism with specific environmental factors or other triggers. “The prevalence rate now places it as the third most common developmental disability – more common than Down Syndrome. Autism interferes with brain development in the areas of social interaction and communication skills. Children and adults with autism typically have difficulties in verbal and non-verbal communication, social interactions, sensory integration, and leisure or play activities. “Autism makes it hard for individuals to communicate with others and relate to the outside world. They may exhibit repeated body movements (hand flapping, rocking), unusual responses to people or attachments to objects, and they may resist changes in routines.” I have discovered through many years of learning from people with autism that speaking “their language” and using their examples or their interests is an effective means of communication, teaching and

learning. For example, going into their world and not expecting or forcing them to meet the social expectations they are not as aware of or can mean very little to them. People with autism can be sensitive to colours and sounds, which can be over-stimulating and cause anxiety. Yet they can see the world the way we are not fortunate enough to see. Some individuals with autism have the ability to see details that we are, in a sense, blind to. Autism gives them the ability to see the world in a brilliant way, a way that can and does improve our society. When we are not so hung up on social expectations we can begin to listen, understand and utilize their skills. There are many books that show a wide range of different ways that autism can affect a person. Although no one book or movie can educate us on the entire spectrum, it can, however, begin a dialogue and understanding of the disorder. One such book I had the pleasure of reading was called Look me in the Eye – My life with Asperger’s by John Elder Robison. There’s a place for all of us in the world. Why is it that people without disabilities believe we know better or can dismiss someone with autism, Asperger’s or other disabilities? In keeping with Temple Grandin’s theory of “Different but not less,” people without disabilities are “different too – but not better!”

Special needs youth benefit from $2M grant A $2 million grant is helping children and youth with special needs gain greater access to their community and have more mobility and independence. The Ministry of Children and Family Development is matching a gift of $1 million from a Vancouver Foundation donor. The grant of $2 million will go to the foundation’s Giving in Action Society for its Children and Youth with Special Needs Fund. Established in 2006, the fund helps families achieve such goals as making home renovations, purchasing a wheelchair-accessible vehicle or modifying a family vehicle. The fund ensures families have the things they need for their child to gain more independence – allowing them to live in their family home instead of a hospital or care home. Families with a child or youth with special needs (up to 19 years old), from any part of the province, can apply for one-time capital grants from Giving in Action. Those who wish to make a grant application can visit givinginaction.ca – PossAbilities

Matt Forster’s daily routine includes an hour of exercise on an elliptical trainer.

Autism can’t keep Matt from daily fitness routine One aspect of autism is the person’s single-minded focus. Forster is diligent in doing daily physical activity. The change to a healthier lifestyle hasn’t just shown up on Forster’s waistline. “He’s a lot more relaxed, more confident,” said Judy, his mom. The people who work with him at the Langley Association for Community Living have also noticed that he is able to handle everyday life better. His thinking is less rigid and he’s feeling less stressed. “He’s able to accept change and embrace it, and find it novel at times,” noted Aaron Hill, the LACL residential services supervisor. LACL has thrown its support behind Forster doing the ride. Forster has a daily routine that includes an hour of exercise on an elliptical trainer and sit-up machine. He plays soccer and hockey with Special Olympics, and delivers the Langley Advance on two routes that take him to more than 200 homes twice a week. Forster also has his own business, Odd Job Matt. With his

THE

trailer, he picks up garbage, moves furniture, or does any other odd jobs. “I like doing a good job for my work,” he said. And he likes earning his own money. Forster saved up and paid his own way on a vacation to Las Vegas, seeing a variety of the big shows. How much has Forster gotten into exercise? He’s worn out his trampoline as well as one elliptical trainer and has had to have repairs to his current professional-grade model. “You don’t ever want to buy used exercise equipment from Matt,” Emanuels said, chuckling. hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

Abneet Dhaliwal My View

M

y twin sister and I were born threemonths premature. My mother expected us to be born in July but we were born in April. Together, we weighed all of six pounds. Shortly after birth, I was already strugg l i n g t o l i v e . My p a r e n t s h a d t h e heart-wrenching decision of allowing me to fight for my life or to let me go. As you can see, they made the right choice! At seven months, my grandma was the first to notice something was not quite right. My sister had been able to lift her head up and hold her bottle but I was not yet there. My loving mother was not quite ready to believe that something was wrong and it took a bit of convincing from her family to take me in for physio and testing. The nurse had me try to hold different objects but I could not. After a few visits it was soon apparent that I had cerebral palsy (CP). I never cared or even noticed the difference between my sister and I. We had a great childhood, doing all the same things most

sisters do, like playing house and office secretary. As we grew up and started to do different things, it was apparent that we would have very different lives. My sister got her driver’s licence and began to go off to college but I was still facing my challenges. It was difficult to watch the life that could have been mine if the circumstances had not been the way they are. But please do not misunderstand me – I wouldn’t change a thing. I am so happy and proud of my sister as well as myself. It is like my mom says, there is a reason we came together – she is someone who is always there for me no matter what. My family is one of a kind and I feel so privileged to have them because they accept me for who I am and I accept them just the same. I understand there are still challenges to come, but just as I fought to survive, I will still fight to live a good life. I think you lose yourself sometimes when things aren’t as you expect, but I am trying to rediscover who I was before I became an adult. I am working to realize a future that is meant for me. I will always be a fighter, I am never a quitter. I am so proud of my sister, and as much as I believe in myself, she believes in me more.

What do you say when you see someone like Mannie?

Hi Mannie. For some people with developmental disabilities, “Hi” is a big deal. For Mannie, Hi means “you see me.” Hi means “I belong in our community.”

So, start with “Hi” and see what happens.
