ast week I went on at length about the City of White Rock’s shiny new media policy, one that appoints (anoints?) a number of talking heads who are permitted to speak to the media about matters civic. The list includes the mayor and whichever councillor happens to be deputy mayor. All other council members are excluded. The new media policy is intended to make sure the media gets the “right” message, that being the one that works best for city hall. The new media policy is recognition that good journalism doesn’t always coincide with what is best for city hall, in the same way that what is good for city hall isn’t always good for those governed from said city hall. “Unless otherwise authorized, the City’s spokespersons are: Mayor, Deputy Mayor, The City Manager, City Clerk, Department Heads.” Not written, but easily understood, is, “The rest of you, shut up.” The explanation given is that the new media policy ensures “that only the most

accurate information is released to the media.” The mere fact that White Rock city hall wants to restrict access to information does not set it apart; this sort of interference has become commonplace to the extent that reportage dependent on press releases and the offerings of communications officers is commonly referred to in my biz as stenography. So why does White Rock city hall choose to do this now? White Rock citizens – and I’m not just talking about the usual clique of malcontents here – are becoming increasingly vocal in their criticism of city hall. More and more am I hearing the “A-word” – amalgamation with Surrey – bandied about. Something must be done, but what? Impose a new media policy, perhaps? Whatever the reason, White Rock city hall has joined the ranks of McDonalds, General Motors, the makers of Shredded Wheat and thousands of other corporations busily spinning the news for their own benefit. We all know McDonalds and GM want to sell us things. The question is: What does White Rock city hall want us to buy?

SURREY – Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts raised a little hell at the city’s Canada Day party. “I’ve found a new career as a backup singer for Trooper,” Watts quipped Monday, three days after her debut on-stage performance at Surrey’s Canada Day celebration. In sporting style, Watts accepted a dare issued by Trooper singer Ra McGuire in the pages of the Now newspaper last week and joined the group on stage at the Cloverdale Millennium Amphitheatre and sang along to one of their hit classics, “Raise a Little Hell.” SEE VIDEOS, PHOTOS ONLINE Watts said she’s never sung in public before and admitted she was a bit nervous about singing before a crowd of thousands. “It was a lot of fun,” she said. Watts said McGuire tried to cajole her into singing the whole song, but she could only manage the chorus. “He was trying to get me to do a duet but I just didn’t feel comfortable in my vocal abilities to pull that off,” she said.

An estimated crowd of 100,000 took part in the festivities in the park to celebrate Canada’s 144th birthday. Watts said this year’s event was one of the best ever hosted in the city. “It was absolutely phenomenal,” she said. Dual stages were needed at the park to accommodate one of the biggest Canada Day celebrations on the West Coast.

I’ve found a new career as a backup singer for Trooper... He was trying to get me to do a duet but I just didn’t feel comfortable in my vocal abilities to pull that off. Besides multi-platinum group Trooper, country music sweetheart Lisa Brokop and Juno nominee Elise Estrada were also on hand to thrill the crowds.

Police report there were a couple of minor squirmishes but nothing serious and there were no arrests. In White Rock, Canada Day festivities kicked off with a 10K run, walk or jog to celebrate the day. East Beach and West Beach celebrated in their own style. On East Beach, children flocked to the Kids Zone where they could get their faces painted and fly kites. Artisans displayed their wares along the promenade for most of the day. On the other side of the pier, West Beach hosted a renewal of citizenship ceremony, a rite that was topped off with cake cutting. The entertainment stage featured acts for the kids and adults. Entertainers Joni Anderson, Dogwood and Dahlia and Elvis and Marilyn Monroe had the audience dancing from the stage to the promenade. The celebration was capped off with fireworks over Semiahmoo Bay.

SURREY – The HST debate has been extended two weeks because of the recent Canada Post labour dispute. Mail delivery came to a crashing halt in midJune when Canada Post responded to rotating strikes by the 48,000-strong Canadian Union of Postal Workers with a lockout. That disruption means many British Columbia voters have still not received their HST referendum ballots, so Elections BC has extended two key deadlines. The deadline for requesting a ballot package (for those who don’t get one in the mail) has moved from midnight, July 8 to the same hour on July 22. The deadline for getting ballots in to Elections BC has changed from before 4:30 p.m., July 22 to the same time on Aug. 5.

WHITE ROCK – People in White Rock are either bad drivers or the RCMP is cracking down on violators big time. According to White Rock RCMP’s 2010 annual Policing Report and Crime Statistics by Staff Sgt. Lesli Roseberry, police officers issued 1,018 traffic violation tickets, a figure that the report characterizes as “a staggering number of police-driver contacts for a city of this population and for a police department of this size.” The city is policed by an RCMP compliment of 22 officers and has a population of 18,755. It’s not clear from the report whether there are more speeders and careless drivers in the City by the Sea or whether police are cracking down harder on traffic violators. Roseberry was unavailable for comment at Now press time. Policing Marine Drive, especially during the summer months, continues to be a key challenge for White Rock RCMP.

The seaside draws large crowds of youths and young adults bent on partying on the beach. Fueled by alcohol and drugs, many of these visitors spur calls from residents complaining about noise, mischief, liquor offences, thefts and assaults. There were 93 liquor charges and 77 liquor seizures, and 18 drug charges and 29 drug seizures. White Rock RCMP spent about $123,000 on policing the beach from May to September. In total, police responded to 6,961 calls for service and recorded 1,437 criminal code offences in 2010. Property offences, such as burglary, top the list with 995. Police responded to 227 offences classified as violent. There were 285 “theft from auto” offences and 47 stolen vehicles. Police recovered 11 stolen vehicles. In the drunk driving category, there were 55 impaired driving charges and 169 24hour roadside suspensions. As well, there were 83 cases of common assault, nine sex assaults, and 20 shoplifting charges.

Matheson noted that RCMP policy was recently enhanced to strengthen its screening program for people who work with children and others that fall into the “vulnerable” category, and as a result of these changes, the detachment has seen a spike in the volume of applicants that require fingerprints to be taken for identification or verification purposes. Currently, Surrey RCMP processes more than 25,000 criminal record checks per year and about onethird fall into the “vulnerable sector submissions” category – people such as coaches, daycare workers and youth social workers. The new system is

allowing police to plow through these applications much quicker. “This technology enables us to provide a much faster turnaround time to the community and will be a welcome service improvement, particularly for those seeking employment or volunteering opportunities,” he said. The new Live Scan electronic fingerprint machines also help to speed pardons, immigration applications and name changes. Surrey is among the first jurisdictions in B.C. to get a digital scanner.

SURREY – Getting fingerprinted for a criminal record check at the Surrey RCMP station has gotten a lot faster. The detachment has been using a digital fingerprint scanner since April, a device that has dramatically reduced the amount of time it takes to process criminal record checks. Tim Matheson, Surrey RCMP client services manager, says officials still take a person’s fingerprint the same way as they did with the old ink and card system – by rolling a finger from side to side, one by one, to get a clear impression of the whorls and ridges that are uniquely their own. Only there’s no smudgy ink to wash off afterward. But more importantly, the results of the criminal record check come back to Surrey from RCMP headquarters in Ottawa much quicker. “The big advantage of this is how rapidly we get the responses back,” Matheson said. “With the new system, fingerprints can now be analyzed in around eight to 10 days, whereas it had previously taken months.” From to start to finish, the entire

Election window shrinking InTheHouse Keith Baldrey

S

peculation abounds that Premier Christy Clark is itching to call an election this fall, but I can’t help but think the chances of that vote actually occurring are diminishing. The delay in getting the results of the HST referendum alone may be enough to push the election date to the spring or the fall of 2012. The results may not be known until early September, and it’s hard to imagine Clark calling an election until she knows the fate of the HST. That means a midSeptember call at the earliest. But how wise is it to go to the voters after a controversial tax is either voted down or narrowly accepted? I haven’t met anyone who thinks the HST will pass by a large margin. Even the most optimistic pro-HST folks seem to think a 55-45 per cent split is the best-case scenario. If that turns out to be the result, it translates to almost half the electorate

probably being upset that a tax they opposed will indeed be imposed on them – not exactly the kind of public mood a premier would want to test with an election call. And recent polls hardly suggest the B.C. Liberals enjoy a comfortable margin of support among voters over the NDP. No issue has emerged that gives Clark a decided edge over NDP leader Adrian Dix. In fact, Dix has played it fairly safe since taking the helm of the NDP. He has made no rash promises, and he has toned down his negative image (even going so far as to praise the appointment of former premier Gordon Campbell to the post of High Commissioner in London). If anything, Dix has been measured in his criticism and has offered at least one thoughtful proposal that could significantly reduce the amount of money spent on prescription drugs (which has been spiraling upward). In short, Dix has provided few openings for Clark to exploit. Her party is bent on portraying Dix as some sort of grim leftist, but so far he’s making it difficult for them to accomplish that. If any leader has stumbled

a bit recently, it is Clark. Her recent musings about Senate reform seemed poorly thought out and politically naïve (expecting Ontario and Quebec to give up senate seats so B.C. can increase its share seems like something out of left field). Her chance encounter with former Olympics boss John Furlong led him to being appointed cocommissioner of the review of the Stanley Cup riot. My colleague, Rod Mickleburgh of the Globe and Mail, has pointed out that Furlong’s appointment is at least curious because of the harsh criticism of Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson he delivered in his book, Patriot Hearts. Clark also toned down her initially aggressive attack on the rioters, saying now she wants to go after only the

“core” element of the mob. These events lend credence to the impression that Clark is making up policy on the back of a napkin. The “families first” agenda seems stalled and any momentum she had coming out of her party’s leadership race seems to have disappeared. Nevertheless, Clark has her party on election footing. Candidates are being recruited as is campaign staff, and MLAs are being asked if they intend to run again. Energy Minister Rich Coleman is in charge of election readiness, and rumours abound that he personally is not in favour of a fall election. Other Liberals I’ve talked to express fears the party is simply not ready to fight a campaign and the possibility

of an early election appears to be creating serious tension within party ranks. One of Clark’s chief challenges when she became party leader was to maintain party unity. Publicly, she seems to be doing well on that front but behind the scenes it may be a different story. But the arguments for an early election are still there: the B.C. Liberals don’t want to give the B.C. Conservatives much time to become organized, and

the NDP may face the same problems as the Liberals when it comes to election readiness. So Clark is indeed trying to keep her election window open. The problem is that the window is shrinking rapidly, and she may ultimately find it to shut too tight to enable her and her party to squeeze through it any time soon.

Surrey trustees show lack of leadership The Editor, Re: “Trustees get hike in pay, the Now, June 28. At a time when teachers and support staff are being asked by the provincial government to accept no increase in pay for at least two years the Surrey school trustees voted themselves a cost of living increase. It is interesting to note that they balanced the budget for the coming year by relying on a $7.1-million surplus from the current year. In other words, the actual operating budget for 2011-2012 is not balanced, the challenge of balancing the budget will still exist in 12 months and their pay will only contribute to the shortfall. While their increase in pay may be minimal in relationship to the overall district budget, it may have been more appropriate to show restraint and withhold such an increase. There is little doubt the teachers and support staff would be pleased with receiving a salary increase equal to the Consumer Price Index. The honorarium of $29,800 represents pay well above the minimum wage, this for a part-time elected position. Maybe they should defer collecting the increase until contract negotiations with their staff are finalized and lead by example. Denis Desauetls, White Rock

HST is a smarter tax The Editor, Re: “HST simplicity is needed,” the Now, June 30. Perhaps Harvinder Sandhu thinks we’re too simple-minded and that she can fool the readers into believing what she trotted out in her column. First of all, the ballot question on the HST was drafted and approved by Elections BC (not the Liberal party) and was worded the way it was because it needed to reflect the intent of the Vander Zalm/Delaney petition wording. So, if you want to blame someone for the contorted wording, blame Willy. As a small business owner, I support the HST as a smarter tax and as a consumer I see the wisdom of this kind of tax structure. I was not happy with the way the tax was introduced, but I am even less happy with the garbage that Delaney/Sinclair/Dix and Vander Zalm have been spreading and I now include Harvinder in that list. What opponents fail to grasp (and what was not well communicated) is that an HST or Value Added Tax assists the broader economy to succeed and flourish, while a return to the dual-tax regime may, on the surface, reduce the marginal tax impact on individuals. But if those individuals can’t get a job, how is a return to PST beneficial to them? So it comes down to looking at the benefits/

costs from a macro level (society as a whole) versus from a micro (or me) level. Finally, Harvinder finishes with, “keep in mind that the HST taxes the consumer more than it taxes businesses.” By definition, a “consumption tax” is ultimately applied to “the consumer,” even though it might flow through several businesses before it gets applied to the end user. If the “yes” side is victorious, as Harvinder hopes, we will return to the days of paying the PST, thus ending up with two separate (and separately administered) consumption taxes. The only difference is that the PST is a cumulative consumption tax, in that it is applied at each step of the manufacturing process, adding to the final cost of the product, whereas the HST is a flow-through tax (with input tax credits along the way) resulting in lower costs to the consumer and a more competitive product or service on the global market. Domenic Losito, Surrey

We’re like the Greeks The Editor, People should watch the Greek economic crisis carefully in order to learn from it. However, very few will likely learn anything from this situation.

For years, the Greeks have been spending more than they earn and they are on the verge of bankruptcy. Their only sensible option was to accept funds from the European Union with the condition they stop spending more than they earn. The unions and citizens however are protesting because, in effect, they want to keep on spending more than they earn. They are staging strikes and rioting, which will further destroy the country’s income. Are we any different? Not really. Everyone wants unlimited free health care, better transit and a host of other demands, but no one wants to pay. Some fools even say “the government should pay for them” as if the government has money that is not from our own tax dollars. Most of those who will use the new Port Mann Bridge object to the toll and say “the government should pay for it,” as if it is reasonable to ask the interior and northern taxpayers to pay for our convenience. The teachers’ union has advised its members to vote down the HST, even though paying all the enormous costs associated with “unscrambling this egg” will directly affect them in adverse ways. Like Greeks, however, many of our citizens and most unions keep on voting to shoot themselves (and all of us) in the foot, and this trend will probably continue. Geoff Moxon, Surrey

Celebrated chef gets cooking in Surrey Vikram Vij opens doors of Vij’s Inspired Indian Cuisine business on the eastern reaches of Surrey prior to this week’s first Indian Summer Festival

One of B.C.’s most celebrated chefs has cooked up big plans for new enterprises in Surrey. Vikram Vij is best known for the busy restaurant that bares his surname in the South Granville area of Vancouver. The awardwinning chef is also in the spotlight at myriad “foodie” events in Metro Vancouver and has written books about his culinary adventures, which began during Vij’s boyhood days in Amritsar, India. On the Surrey/Langley border, Vij and his wife/business partner, Meeru Dhalwala, have spent three years building a 28,000-squarefoot production facility to cook and package Vij’s Inspired Indian Cuisine, a flash-frozen product now sold at 92 grocery stores in B.C. and other regions. In coming months Vij also plans to open another restaurant, this one in the Morgan Crossing area of South Surrey. A name has been chosen, but the restaurateur is keeping it secret until all contracts are signed. “Our plan is to be in Surrey long-term,”Vij told the Now. The company CEO wanted to build the facility right, with enough space for future growth. The location was chosen to capitalize on Surrey’s immigrant workforce and agricultural lands, and also its proximity to the American border, he said.“Twenty years from now, this will still be our main production facility.” Four years ago, the 55th Avenue property was a 1.5-acre vacant lot. The curry-coloured factory, built from scratch with Vij leading the way, opened in February.“I had no idea how to build any of this, but I planned it all,” Vij said.“I made some mistakes along the way — $200,000 mistakes. It was like having a child — a lot of mistakes along the way, right?” One of the challenges at the large-scale production facility was preparing food usually cooked in a small kitchen.

“Going from small pots to huge vats of sauces, that’s been difficult — from a small kitchen to a place like this,”Vij said as he showed off huge new freezers, spice rooms and vegetable-prep stations. “Like, I didn’t even know how a kettle worked. We didn’t realize you couldn’t brown ingredients in a kettle, so we created a machine to do that right next to the kettle.” In a boxing room, a crew of six worked to hand-ladle a curry from a vat into 300-gram bags, which were then placed into a bin full of ice. The bags are later flash-frozen for delivery to grocery stores.

Our plan is to be in Surrey long-term. Twenty years from now, this will still be our main production facility. The factory currently produces 15 different kinds of bags — seven vegetable meals and eight with meat. Each sells for around $10 or $11 in stores. “We cook only one dish a day here, due to efficiencies and quality control,” said the boss, who commutes to the factory from his Vancouver home.“When you pay attention to one dish, it’s done with more passion and love.” Right now, the factory employs 12 people, a number that could increase to 40 as more product is sold in more markets across Canada and the U.S. Still in the planning stages at the plant is a fancy test kitchen, which will play host to special events and cooking classes. This week, Vij is a special guest at the inaugural Indian Summer Festival (July 7-17), an event in Vancouver that celebrates the “Year of India in Canada.” The festival of arts and ideas will feature top contemporary and classical Indian talent in music, dance, literature, film, yoga and cuisine.

Members of Life Church White Rock are thankful for the “I Love Surrey” T-shirts donated by the Now for an Amazing Race type event. During the race, teams of two completed tasks at places like Art Knapps Plantland, Newton Wave Pool, Surrey Art Gallery, the Easy Does it Club and Sunrise Pavilion. The church has staged the race for the past four years, each year with a different theme; this year it was “I Love Surrey.” “(Teams) arrive at 10 a.m. and all phones, money and keys are turned in,” said Favian Kleine, an organizer of the event. “They are provided with a bag that has a water bottle each, bus passes, power bars and two quarters, in case of emergency.” Clues at each destination direct teams to the next site.

Race participants in “I Love Surrey” T-shirts worn for Life Church White Rock event. “Our hope was to visit venues and services in the community and stay close enough to bus routes to prevent too much running,” Kleine added.

Delta’s police and fire departments are once again teaming up to take on the world on the ice at the 2011 World Police and Fire Games. The two departments put together two hockey teams for the 2009 Games in Vancouver/Burnaby. This year, five firefighters and 14 police officers will be donning the Delta Bulls jerseys later this summer in New York. The World Police and Fire Games has been held every two years since the inaugural event in 1985. It brings together professional firefighters, law enforcement, customs and correctional officers from around the world for 10 days of sport, competition and camaraderie. An expected 15,000

to 18,000 athletes, more than both the Winter and Summer Olympics, representing 70 countries will descend on New York Aug. 26 to Sept. 5. Over those 11 days, 65 sporting events will take place at 35 venues in and around the city. In 2009, Delta had more than 100 firefighters and police officers compete, many of whom brought home medals. Police chief Jim Cessford, along with Grant Armstrong, will once again be behind the bench for the team. Both spent many years coaching minor hockey. Armstrong is also the head scout for the Portland Winterhawks and coaches the North Delta Devils junior “B” team. To help fund the trip, the team held a fundraiser at Emma Lea Farms on Westham Island over the

Powerchair soccer

Powering onto the world stage Michael Booth

Idle hands may be the devil’s playground, but Keith Knight’s hands are anything but aimless as they work the joystick controls of an electric-powered wheelchair. Although stricken with Arthrogryposis (a rare, congenital disease of the muscles and joints), Knight can work his chair’s controls like no other, melding body, mind and machine to become the Canadian Pélé of the powerchair soccer world. Dubbed “the Devil” by Japanese rivals (and “the Spider” by American foes), the 24-yearold Kwantlen Polytechnic University business student will be taking some time off from the books this fall to lead the Canadian National Team at the 2011 World Cup of Powerchair Football. The venue for the games will be Paris, and Knight can hardly contain his excitement about what awaits in the fabled City of Lights. “It’s going to be awesome and I can’t wait,” he said with an infectious gleam in his eyes. “I want to eat some escargots. I’m going to Paris so I’ve got to try it. I’ve never been outside of North America before so this is really exciting.” Powerchair soccer began roughly 30 years ago with people knocking around physio balls with their chairs. From these humble roots, the game has developed into a sport played at the local, national and, with the advent of the first World Cup tournament in 2007, the international levels. Today the game features specialized equipment complete with customized chairs designed for the rigours of the sport. In fact, as in the world of auto racing, the governing body of the game has been compelled to impose strict regulations on the speeds of the chairs and make foot guards mandatory to protect the players from injury. “Everything is so fine tuned today,” the Guildford resident said. “When I started it was just guys kicking a ball around but now it’s a real sport. It’s a real finesse game now with tactics and coaching. We can only go 6.2

miles per hour (10 kilometres per hour) but we need to have the most powerful spin kicks and reactions to compete. A lot of guys have to wear chest straps too because they don’t have the strength to stay in their chair with all the spinning that we do.” He added with an impish grin, “They limit how fast you can go backwards too but I’ve never seen that enforced.” Despite all of the technological advances, Knight admits there are still moments of frustration when his chair cannot react as fast as he wants it to. He can see where he needs to be to make a play, but his ability to get there is impeded by the chair’s limitations.

When I started it was just guys kicking a ball around but now it’s a real sport. It’s a real finesse game now with tactics and coaching. “There are times when that happens,” he said. “A lot of the problem is related to how the chair is programmed. One of the biggest issues is if you are driving forward with your chair and suddenly you want to go backwards, if it’s not programmed right there will be a noticeable two- or three-second delay. That’s enough to be a goal because your chair couldn’t react in time. If your chair programmed right though, it’ll basically move with your own reactions.” Knight started playing the game at age six in Chilliwack and he got his first taste of international competition two years later when he played some exhibition games against a touring Japanese team. Knight was impressed to learn there were as many as 30 teams playing the game in Japan. Conversely, the Japanese were impressed with Knight’s skills even at that young age, bestowing the “devil” nickname upon him after he led his team to several wins. “It was pretty cool to see a team from a see KNIGHT › page 21

Kim fourth at B.C. Amateur Surrey’s Taylor Kim used a fast start to propel her way to a fourth-place finish at the B.C. Amateur Women’s Golf Championship tourney at Alberni Golf Club in Port Alberni last week. Hometown favourite Christina Proteau took over the lead in the third round and held on to win her third B.C. women’s crown with a final score of (73-74-68-75) 290. Kim shared the tournament lead after the second round of play before Proteau

staged her comeback. Kim finished the event with a card of (70-73-74-77) 294, good for a share of fourth place, four strokes back of Proteau. — Port Alberni wasn’t the only place Kim was making a favourable impression last week. While she was competing in the B.C. women’s tourney, B.C. Golf announced Kim had been named to the B.C. team that will compete at the upcoming 2011 Western Canada Summer Games in

Kamloops next month. Kim was one of four players named to B.C.’s women’s team. The four-member B.C. men’s team includes Donald Qiu of Surrey. Golf will take place in the second week of the Games at The Dunes golf course from Aug. 11-14. The format will be a 54-hole stroke play format for the individual competition, and the first 36 holes will also count toward the team championship.

Knight proud to represent Canada 18 years ago, this is all I’ve wanted to do. Even when I was six years old, I wanted to be the best in the world and to play for my country is such a great honour. It’s a big deal to me and it’s so exciting.” — Knight and his

teammates are looking for sponsors to help cover the costs associated with attending the World Cup. The Canadian team members need all the help they can get because participation involves not only their presence, but also

covering the costs of their attendants plus shipping their chairs to France. Donations can be made through www. sportabilitybc.ca or by contacting Kim De Wildt of Powerchair Football Canada at 604-760-2175.

Golf report Those of a certain age will remember that in 1970 the Vancouver Canucks selected Dale Tallon as their number one overall pick in the NHL draft. What you probably won’t remember is that Dale Tallon won the Canadian Junior Boys Golf Championship in 1969. In fact, that was the year they changed from match play to stroke play. Why do I bring up Dale Tallon? Well, lost in the shuffle of the excitement of the Canadian Open coming to Shaughnessy later this month is the fact that the Canadian Junior Boys Championship is coming to Morgan Creek in South Surrey Aug. 2 to 5. You’re going to see the very best 18-and-under players in Canada, as each province will bring their provincial teams. They will play, as a team, for the first two days, then the top 70 and ties at that point will play the final two days with scores from the first two days counting towards the final score. British Columbians who have won this tournament include, among others: Jim Rutledge, Brent Franklin, James Lepp, Doug Roxburgh and Nick Taylor. The tournament is in good hands with Dave Durand, who co-chaired the final years of the PGA Air Canada Championship, holding the title of tournament committee chairperson for the junior boys championship. Durand and Morgan Creek are looking for volunteers. Being a volunteer will cost you $30, but there is a lot that goes with it. All your meals, shirt, golfing shell, hat etc., will be provided. Mainly they are looking for those who can handle scoring and marshalling. It’s a fun way to get involved in a tournament and you will see the very best young players in Canada taking part. If you’re interested, just phone the Morgan Creek Pro Shop and tell them you would like to volunteer. Although the official yardage has not been set, Morgan Creek is expected to play to about 6,800 yards for the tournament. Perhaps you will have a chance to see a budding pro star. George Knudson won this tournament and went on to be one of Canada’s finest on the PGA Tour. ************************************************************* Although Canadians Mike Weir, Stephen Ames and David Hearn did not finish high up at the PGA’s AT&T tournament on the weekend, it was nice to see those three Canadians make the cut. Nick Watney was the winner and has now collected over $4 million and the year is only half over. Canada’s Rod Spittle put on a great show on the final day of the Champions Tour event in Montreal. He went out and shot the best score of the day, a 62, in the final round to go from 49th place to seventh in one jump. He wanted badly to win with the tour in Canada; however, that 62 gave the fans plenty to cheer about. The tournament was won by John Cook. Canada will now have two LPGA events starting next year. Manulife Financial calls Waterloo home and is now sponsoring a new LPGA tour event. The other tournament is the Canadian Women’s Open sponsored by CN. Sadly for the rest of Canada, Waterloo will be the tournament’s permanent home so we won’t see it in our province. Congratulations to Port Alberni’s Christina Proteau, who won her third BC Women’s Amateur Championship last week. Not only was the win great, but she did it on her home course, in front of her hometown fans. B.C.’s Rick Gibson, who has been playing on the Asian Tour for years and now calls the Philippines home, is turning 50 this year and will attempt to make the Champions Tour through qualifying school this fall. That’s all for now. You can reach me at preimer@canwest.com

‹ from page 19 different country and a different culture entirely already so into the sport,” Knight said. “It was around then that I realized that powerchair soccer could be pretty big. Soccer is already huge internationally so why can’t this be huge, too?” He’ll get a chance to see how huge the game is becoming when he lands in France in September. Powerchair soccer is not yet included in the Paralympic Games so the quadrennial World Cup tournament stands as the pinnacle of the sport. Like Knight, all of the members of the Canadian team live in B.C. and they will spend the summer training three days per week to prepare for the World Cup. Knight and national teammate Luke Galvani, 18, describe the event as a once in a lifetime chance to represent their country. While athletes in other sports toss off this clichéd line before many big events, the life expectancy and health issues faced by the participants in the World Cup of Powerchair Football lend much more immediacy to the notion. Still, after almost two decades of chasing leather balls around gymnasiums, Knight is thrilled to be on the verge of living his dream — donning a red uniform to represent Canada in an international competition. “That means everything to me,” Knight said proudly. “Since I started playing

Local Roadshow Expert Examines Some Gold Jewellery

After many very successful shows around the Lower Mainland, The Rock, Roadshow is now here here in in White Langley, BC. So you had better search through your attics and garages, go through your lock boxes and jewellery, because you may be sitting on a small fortune and not even know it! Roadshow experts are here to examine all your antiques, collectibles, gold and silver.

jewellery she was never going to wear anyways. Expert Elijah Gold explains, “We have noticed a substantial increase in the amount of precious metals such as gold and silver coming to the Roadshow, which makes sense considering how high it’s currently trading at. He added, “The Roadshow is great because it puts money in people’s pockets, especially during such hard times. Lots of items that are just sitting around collecting dust in basements and jewellery boxes can be exchanged for money, on the spot!”

During a show near Toronto, a woman came in with a jewellery box that she had just inherited from her late aunt. “I don’t wear jewellery,” explained Barbara Engles, “so it was an easy decision to come down to the Roadshow to sell it”. She was very excited when she was able to walk away with a cheque for over $2,100 for

At another Roadshow event, a woman, named Mira Kovalchek, walked in with a tin full of hundreds of old coins that were given to her as a young child by her grandfather. She finally decided to come in to the Roadshow and see what he had given her. She was ecstatic to learn she had coins dating back to the late 1800’s, some of which were extremely rare.

Roadshow consultant Perry Bruce explains “We had uncovered an 1871 Queen Victoria 50 Cent piece, valued at over $2,000!! She had a nice assortment of coins that were not rare dates, but she was able to sell them for their silver content”. She explains, “I never would have thought that my old tin of coins was worth so much! I can finally afford

to renovate my kitchen”. Perry Bruce continued, “Canadian coins prior to 1967, and American coins prior to 1964 are all made with silver, and we have noticed a large increase of customers coming to the Roadshow with coins and cashing them in for their silver value”.

Experts at the Roadshow will evaluate and examine your items, FREE OF CHARGE, as well as educate you on them. The Roadshow sees hundreds of people during a one week event, and they have been travelling across Canada to different cities and towns, searching for your forgotten treasures. Trains, dolls, toys, old advertising signs, pocket watches, porcelain and bisque dolls, pretty much everything can be sold at the Roadshow. Any early edition Barbie’s are sought after by the Roadshow collectors, as well as a variety of Dinky Toys and Matchbox cars. Lionel Trains and a

variety of tin toys can also fetch a price, especially if they are in their original box or in mint condition. If a collector is looking for one of your collectibles, they often make offers to buy them.

A man brought in a 1950’s Marx Tin Toy Robot, in fairly good condition, still in its original box. We were able to locate a collector for that specific toy within minutes, and that gentleman went home with over $700 for his Toy Robot and a few other small toys. So whether you have an old toy car, a broken gold chain, or a Barbie sitting in the closet, bring it down to the Roadshow, we will take a look at it for FREE and it could put money in your pocket!

See you at the Roadshow!

Camaro powers up for 2011 Now Contributors

The Looks My ‘Inferno Orange’ test Camaro was quickly dubbed “Lightning McQueen” like the Cars movie character. Its shark nose, blacked-out grille and extra-long hood are important Camaro design traits. The hood is aluminum and has a power dome that looks cool, but is not functional. The Camaro also has a shapely rear-end with muscular hips. The entire rear and side body section is a unique one-piece metal stamping. The RS appearance package on my test Camaro includes High-Intensity Discharge headlights with LED-illuminated “halo” rings that add even more distinction.

Safety No crash tests results are currently available, but a good result is expected. Unlike the Mustang, a side curtain air (head protection) bag is standard on the Camaro. The Drive The shortened glass area, which gives the Camaro its sporty chopped roofline appearance, does cause some vision restrictions for the driver. You sit quite low; my shoulder was level with the top of the door, and the top of its long hood is about chin level. Headroom, however, is an issue for taller drivers, particularly if it has the sunroof option. A design drawback that’s common to most sport coupes is rear visibility and the narrow side mirrors on Camaro don’t help matters. The rear C-pillars are particularly wide and the low roofline stretches a little further ahead of the driver, which can make it more difficult to see overhead traffic lights if you’re first in line. All is forgiven when you step on the gas pedal and hit the road. While Mustang uses a traditional rigid rear axle, the Camaro has a more sophisticated independent link suspension setup with coil springs and an isolated sub-frame. It’s a difference that gives a twisty road advantage to the Camaro. A surprisingly good handling sports car, the Camaro is a hoot to drive, as its V6 has more than enough power for most drivers. Its engine makes all the right noises for a discerning

sports car lover, and eagerly revs to its 7,000 rpm limit, yet still gets decent fuel economy. The Score A drop-dead gorgeous design and a thrill to drive, the new Chevrolet Camaro is everything you expect a Camaro to be — and more.

The Inside The steering wheel has a manually adjustable tilt and telescopic feature and the front seats are generous in size and offer good support. The dash and instrument panel, however, are not on par with its terrific external styling. The retro-theme just doesn’t seem to work as well on the inside. There’s a lack of warmth and visual interest, with excessive use of same-colour trim and plastic. The lack of handy storage spots around the cabin, other than its good-sized glove box, was another disappointment. The rear seat legroom is tight and headroom is limited, which is not unusual in this class of coupe. Still, it’s handy to have if only for storage,

but avoid having to sit back there. There’s also a pass-through to the trunk behind its drop-down seatback if you need to transport a longer item.

192ND

The big news from the Camaro camp is a power upgrade to its base V6 engine for model year 2011. Chevrolet engineers have managed to squeeze 312horsepower out of the 3.6-litre engine so that it now out powers the base engines in the Ford Mustang and the Dodge Challenger. If you were around for the first go-around of “muscle-car war” back in the late-’60s and early ’70s, you probably experienced something nostalgic to that announcement. These days, however, auto manufacturers also have to keep an eye on fuel economy, and the base engine is the big seller. The re-emergence of Camaro has also revived an old head-to-head rivalry with the Ford Mustang. In addition to its lead in V6 engine, the new Camaro also offers the advantages of a fully-independent rear suspension, a longer wheelbase and a wider track. The top-line Camaro SS has a mighty 6.2litre V8 engine (from the Corvette), which can churn out 425 horsepower with a 6-speed manual and 400 horsepower with the optional 6-speed automatic. It can get to 100 km/h in less than five seconds, which is super-car territory. Compared to the original ’67, the new’ Camaro is longer, wider and taller. It has bigger wheels, which come in 18-inch to 21-inch rim sizes, and these also account for a small increase in overall height. Regardless of the rim size ordered for the new Camaro, its tire-tobody gap is always the same so that it doesn’t detract from the overall look of the vehicle. My test Camaro was

an LT equipped with an RS (Rally Sport/$1,995) package. This adds 20-inch wheels, Xenon headlights, a rear spoiler, unique tail lights and the RS badge. The headlights come with a unique “halo” ring feature that gives a very cool visual effect.
