The Surrey RCMP is reviewing a coroner’s inquest jury’s recommendations following the tragic death of a young Surrey woman who was struck down by a Mountie’s patrol car on King George Boulevard. “We respect the inquest verdict and its recommendations,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet. He added they will “require some time” to review. “We are looking at all the opportunities to improve on the policing service.” Ashley Christine Guiboche, 18, was killed shortly before midnight on Jan. 31, 2011 while jaywalking across the boulevard, near the King George SkyTrain Station. The northern strip of King George in Whalley is notorious for collisions involving pedestrians. Four pedestrians have been killed along the strip in the past few years. The three-day inquest, presided over last week by coroner Vincent Stancato, heard that Surrey RCMP Const. Albert Luk had been travelling about 90 kilometres an hour, in response to a call about a stolen vehicle, when his patrol car hit Guiboche.

‘Childish’ shirts take shot at city Website owner thinks parody is hilarious but Hayne says Surrey jokes getting old email now with Jacob Zinn

Now contributor Twitter @jacobzinn

Surrey is still trying to shake its reputation as one of Canada’s most crime-riddled cities following a series of controversial T-shirts that are making the rounds online. At the end of January, the City of Surrey sent a cease-and-desist order meant for Don Pitcairn, the resident behind T-shirt parody website surreyshirts. com, opposing several shirts on his website that purportedly put Surrey in a poor light. The designs included such slogans as “The Future Dies Here” – in reference to the city’s motto – and “Better Safe than Surrey,” which was brandished with

six bullet holes next to a semiautomatic pistol. “‘The Future Dies Here,’ that shirt has an anti-gun, anti-gang message to it,” said Pitcairn, who learned about the letter after it was addressed to Jason Arsenault of surreyclothing.com, another resident who designs edgy Surreythemed shirts. “We thought it was kind of ironic that the city would take offence to it, especially considering we had five gun murders supposedly all linked to organized crime in January alone.” The order cited trademarks on the city’s current logo, including “the future lives here” tagline, as well as the historic “Welcome to Surrey” beaver logo, which appeared in similar designs on two other shirts. The order called for ceased production and sale of the merchandise and that all existing products be removed from the

(Photo: JACOB ZINN) website and destroyed. “To say that they think they have copyright protection on the logo that we designed that has a handgun, they’d better have a Glock 9mm on the Surrey signs in order to say that,” said Pitcairn. “That shirt has a message and maybe they just didn’t get it.” When asked about the parody of the city’s logo, Coun. Bruce Hayne – whose former company thornleyHAYNE Creative Communications designed the city’s current logo and tagline – called the redesign “unfortunate” and “childish.” “It goes to a lack of taste and a lack of judgment,” said Hayne. “What we created six or seven years ago as the new brand of Surrey, I think, is holding up extremely well.”

While he acknowledged that parody is permitted under law, he finds the slogans themselves to be worn-out potshots at the city. “Surrey now is being seen as an up-and-coming and exciting place to be, so I don’t think those old Surrey jokes of 20 years ago are applicable at all today,” he said. “I think people will see it for what it is, and it’s, as I said, a rather sophomoric and sad attempt at humour.” Pitcairn said that while he believes more and more people are proud to be from Surrey, its reputation for crime is still relevant today. “Surrey, unfortunately, is synonymous with gangland shootings,” said Pitcairn, adding that Surrey’s reputation for gang violence is known across Canada.

“This is something that we need to take control of.” He added that he felt the logos produced for Surrey Shirts were distinguished enough from the originals that any legal action against his website would be outside the city’s copyright, or that his work would be protected under political satire. He claims to have used different fonts in the lettering of the designs, among other changes. “You copyright your logo, not similarities,” he said. In the wake of widespread media coverage, the City of Surrey has backed down on the ceaseand-desist order. The city’s legal department has not yet responded to the Now’s requests for an interview.

Sukh Dhaliwal announces he is dropping out as a B.C. Liberal MLA candidate on Friday afternoon in Surrey. (Photo: JACOB ZINN)

Former Surrey Liberal MP Sukh Dhaliwal dashed out of his own press conference Friday afternoon – with cameramen chasing him out to the parking lot. This was after reporters peppered him with questions about when he first found out charges had been laid against him and his wife under the Income

Tax Act, and when he told the B.C. Liberal party about it. Dhaliwal had called the press conference to announce he was dropping out as the B.C. Liberals’ MLA candidate for SurreyPanorama Ridge in the coming provincial election. He said the past few days had been “extremely difficult” for himself and his family, after news of the charges broke on Thursday. “I want to make sure I take care of the outstanding matters that are in front of the courts,” he said. Dhaliwal noted that people who seek public office have to be committed to the highest

standards of behaviour. As an MP, he said, “I lived those principles.” He said he didn’t want this matter to be a distraction for the governing Liberal party as it heads into the May 14 election. The press conference started to go sideways for Dhaliwal after one reporter bluntly asked him how a former MP, who has run a company, and been an MLA candidate for the B.C. Liberals, could end up in “this holy mess.” “We are all human beings,” a flustered Dhaliwal replied. see DHALIWAL › page 5

Definitely maybe. Surrey Liberal MLA Dave Hayer is still playing coy concerning rumours he’s planning to take a run at federal politics in the 2015 general election. “In response to rumours that I will be running for office in the next federal election, slated for 2015, I want to confirm that at this time I am devoting all of my attention to my current role as MLA for Surrey-Tynehead,” Hayer told the Now on Friday. “However, over the past couple of years I have been approached many times, by many people, to seek a seat as a Member of Parliament. I have considered those suggestions carefully.” Last July, Hayer, the veteran MLA for Surrey-Tynehead revealed he would not be running for office in the provincial general election this coming May 14. “Part of that decision was that if reelected as MLA in May 2013, then I decided to run federally in 2015, I would have triggered an expensive bylection, which I believe is the wrong thing to do for my constituents,” he explained Friday. Last summer, Hayer was non-committal about rumours he was considering running under the Conservative banner in Surrey in 2015, and remains so today. Still, rumours have persisted concerning his alleged intentions, and are all over the map. By some accounts he’s eyeballing Fleetwood-Port Kells, currently held by Tory

MP Nina Grewal, and by others, Surrey-White Rock Cloverdale, held by Tory Russ Hiebert. The Tories asked him to run as their candidate in Newton-North Delta in the May 2012 Dave Hayer federal election, but he declined. Hayer told the Now last July that if he did decide to run for MP, it would likely be in the new North Surrey-Guildford riding proposed by the Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission. That riding, he noted, would contain about 95 per cent of his Surrey-Tynehead constituency. “Even if I do decide to run federally, I cannot say in which seat I would consider running in since the federal riding boundaries won’t even be determined until later this year,” he said Friday. Hayer has served as a Liberal MLA for 11 years. Despite his reticence about this running for MP business, he did serve up a resumé of sorts: “I believe that given my three terms as serving as MLA for Surrey-Tynehead, listening and working on constituent issues that encompass all three levels of government and my personal experience in dealing with many issues involving the justice system, there is much that I can bring to the federal government in terms of issues that are on the minds of British Columbians. I look forward to the upcoming months.”

Coroners inquest

Dhaliwal told Boulevard must be made safer: jury Liberals about woes Wednesday ‹ from page 1

‹ from page 3

Dhaliwal said he wasn’t aware of the charges until after he was acclaimed as candidate. A party press released dated Oct. 31, 2012, said he’d been acclaimed. He said the charges arise from difficulty obtaining information from other sources, but didn’t elaborate on that. “There’s no tax evasion, just income tax filing,” he said. Friday’s press conference was at the Grand Taj Banquet Hall in Newton, where less than a week earlier Dhaliwal and Premier Christy Clark had glad-handed with a crowd of nearly 800 of Dhaliwal’s supporters during his $125-a-plate campaign fundraiser. The B.C. Liberal Party, at Clark’s direction, sent out a press release Friday morning that Dhaliwal’s candidacy was under review by a committee bearing the unwieldy title of Candidate Approval Subcommittee of the Provincial Election Readiness Committee. Sam Oliphant, a spokesman for the party, wouldn’t discuss who’s on the committee or when the review was expected to conclude. “We don’t release that information,” he said. The party’s press release stated that Dhaliwal disclosed his “legal situation” to party officials on Wednesday. Several hours before Friday’s press conference, Dhaliwal’s campaign manager Al Payne told the Now that the beleaguered politician was “in good spirits.” Dhaliwal told the Now last Thursday that he didn’t know he was facing six charges under the Income Tax Act when the B.C. Liberal Party chose him to be its candidate for Surrey-Panorama in the coming provincial election. The former Liberal MP for Newton-North Delta and his wife, Roni, have been charged with failing to comply with the Income Tax Act in connection with Genko Consultants Inc., of which Sukh is president and Roni is the secretary. Sukh faces six charges, and Roni, 14.

The jury heard Luk did not have his lights or sirens on and seconds before the crash had been distracted by a message on his car’s mobile data terminal. The jury found that Guiboche’s death was accidental. It made six recommendations; one being that the City of Surrey, ICBC and TransLink “find a solution to the serious jaywalking problem” on King George Boulevard between 98th and 100th avenues, and that an overhead walkway over the King George and a crosswalk at 98B Avenue be

considered “a priority.” The jury also recommended that Mounties receive more frequent training concerning the Motor Vehicle Act and emergency driving regulations, and that the RCMP programs its patrol car equipment to transmit audible text of all incoming messages that would enable the officers to respond verbally and hands-free while driving. Luk still serves with the Surrey RCMP. He had been with the RCMP for two years at the time of the collision.

RCMP recognizes Surrey’s ‘ultimate volunteers’ Please

Recycle a message from

The RCMP and city hall honoured Surrey’s 86 auxiliary constables as the “ultimate volunteers” Thursday, during a ceremony at Eaglequest Coyote golf course. The auxiliary constable program has been running in Surrey since the 1960s and is the biggest in Canada. The auxiliaries are uniformed volunteers and serve alongside Mounties. Last year, they volunteered more than 20,000 hours all told, with two of the auxiliary constables volunteering more than 800 hours each and nine volunteering more than 500 hours.

“Auxiliary constables are an integral part of our crime reduction strategy, strengthening bonds with the community and helping our citizens get involved with strategies that support crime prevention initiatives,” said Surrey RCMP Chief Supt. Bill Fordy. “Since the 1960s officers in Surrey have had the privilege of working alongside these dedicated men and women.” Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts said the city is “extremely fortunate to have such a strong and committed auxiliary constable team.”

Bus driver hurt after helping

RETHINK WASTE COLLECTION NOTICE

A Coast Mountain bus driver who stopped to help a motorist in need was injured Friday morning during a chain of traffic crashes at Scott Road and 96th Avenue. Surrey Mounties are investigating. Cpl. Bert Paquet said that shortly before 9 a.m. Friday a Honda Accord’s engine caught fire after the car rear-ended a Volvo that had stopped in traffic, waiting to make a left turn. The bus driver then came to the rescue. He parked his bus, grabbed his on-board fire extinguisher and began putting out the flames, creating a cloud of smoke and extinguisher spray. A Toyota 4-Runner rear-ended the by then unoccupied Accord, which in turn knocked the bus driver down onto the pavement, leaving him with cuts and bruises.

Business leaders want cheaper childcare Surrey Board of Trade urges feds to create affordable childcare policy Jacob Zinn

Now contributor Twitter @jacobzinn

The Surrey and Burnaby boards of trade are calling on the provincial and federal governments to make childcare more affordable – not just in their respective cities, but across the country. The Surrey Board of Trade hosted the second annual Business and Families First Dialogue last Tuesday to discuss ways to lower the cost of quality childcare to $10 per day in an effort to help working parents achieve healthy work-life balances. The aim is to decrease stress and increase productivity for career-minded parents, and also to reduce the impact that looking after a child has on their work. “What we’re asking the federal government to do is to change Anita Huberman how they create their budget to improve efficiencies so that there is a childcare policy in place for Canada,” said Anita Huberman, CEO of the SBoT. “There’s nothing existing at this point in time.” According to SFU, the average monthly cost of childcare for infants and toddlers is $1,200, while children between the ages of three and five cost about $809 per month for childcare. The recommendations for more affordable childcare were drafted by the SBoT’s Social Policy Team and presented to the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in 2012. However, the chamber noted it didn’t want to increase taxes for businesses and sought other sources to fund the subsidies. Surrey-Panorama MLA Stephanie Cadieux, who is also the Minister of Children and Family Development, attended the dialogue to brainstorm ways to reduce the cost of childcare. “She did indicate that because of the current fiscal situation of the B.C. government that the first recommendation was to reform the childcare subsidy system so that parents pay no more than $10 a day, making it free for families earning less than $40,000 a year,” said Huberman. Huberman said the SBoT is in talks with other boards

of trade in an effort to get national support for the recommendations, which she plans to take before the Canadian Chamber in Ottawa this September. The effort is already gaining ground following a recent landmark federal court decision that indicated workplaces are obliged to accommodate childcare-related requests, within reason.

“I feel a little bit more confident that we will be taken seriously,” she said. “We have the economic research and statistics to back us up. There are small steps in terms of changing the philosophy, the mindset on creating childcare policies in the province. This is an opportunity for B.C. to really take a leadership role.”

Surrey principal among Canada’s top educators share with Christopher Poon

Now staff Twitter @questionchris

A Surrey principal has been named one of the top principals in Canada for 2013. Strawberry Hill Elementary’s Raminder Randhawa recently learned he was selected as one of the top 51 educators in the country for 2013 Canada’s Outstanding Principals, an annual program put on by The Learning Partnership, a national education advocacy group. Randhawa, who was nominated by his staff prior to Christmas, said the selection reflects more on his school than on him as an individual. “As you know, schools are places where teams of teachers and educators work very hard to help kids learn, help them make it in life and I am just sort of a cheerleader in the back who supports these teams of educators,” he said. “The selection is a tribute to the people I work with because a principal is just one part of a school of teachers that work very,

(Photo: KEVIN HILL) very hard and I am just proud to be part of that team. “I’m honoured, and at the same time, humbled by the selection.” For being selected, Randhawa will join the other winners from across Canada in Toronto later this month for a gala awards dinner.

The principals will also participate in a special training program during their trip, a leadership program from the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management. “There will be a whole bunch of workshops and further opportunities to see where one can cheerlead and support other educators,” said Randhawa.

The win comes in Randhawa’s second year at the helm of Strawberry Hill Elementary and prior to his current stint, he was principal at Cougar Creek Elementary for five years. According to Akela Peoples, president and CEO of The Learning Partnership, the yearly awards are a chance for leaders in education to get the recognition they deserve. “Behind every great school is a great principal who is not only an outstanding educator, but an excellent manager and leader,” said Peoples. “We are thrilled to be recognizing these individuals as examples of excellence in public education.” But while Randhawa is grateful for the recognition, he reiterates that it’s not his award alone. “I honestly feel it is a tribute to the team I work with and really important to honour their work,” he said. “As the systems are set up it’s only one person that gets recognized, but I cannot overemphasize the fact that the parents, teachers and the various professionals that work with the schools is part of this. It’s all a collaboration.”

Mayor Baldwin receives Diamond Jubilee award

Wayne Baldwin

Baldwin was thankful for the award. “I am honoured to receive a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal,” he said. “White Rock is a spectacular place to live, with a strong sense of community. It has been a pleasure to dedicate such a large part of my life to this wonderful place.” The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal was created to honour Canadians who have made significant contributions to their communities and countries as a whole. The award was created to coincide with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee beginning last year, and will see a total of 60,000 Canadians recognized during the yearlong celebration.

It has been a pleasure to dedicate such a large part of my life to this wonderful place.

White Rock Mayor Wayne Baldwin is the most recent recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. Baldwin was nominated for contributions made to White Rock and the region as a whole by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM). Prior to becoming mayor, Baldwin served as the city manager for a number of years and the award is meant to recognize his role in ensuring the prosperity and high quality of life for the citizens and visitors of White Rock. “Your peers in local government across the country admire your accomplishments as a community leader, and congratulate you on earning this prestigious award,” read a congratulatory letter from the FCM.

‘Protest’ votes may equal seats InTheHouse Keith Baldrey

follow Keith with

W

hile the two major political parties garner most of the attention in this province, I wonder whether other parties and independent candidates will have a larger impact on May’s election than anything we’ve seen recently. Polls indicate there is a mobile bloc of “protest” voters who are upset at the B.C. Liberal government for a number of reasons, and are willing to consider a variety of alternatives when it comes to marking their ballot. The NDP seems to have attracted the highest number of disaffected B.C. Liberal supporters, but public opinion can evolve fairly quickly during an election campaign and it can head in unforeseen directions. For example, during the 1991 election campaign the ruling Social Credit party

fell apart in a very public way and the B.C. Liberals came out of nowhere to the point of almost winning the election itself. Thousands of people deserted the Socreds but were unwilling to switch to the polar opposite NDP and settled on something else. If the B.C. Liberals don’t get their act together and win back a significant number of those people who have turned their backs on them, I suspect the B.C. Conservative Party and in particular the Green Party will be the prime beneficiaries. As well, there are four or five independent candidates who either stand a decent chance of winning or at the very least playing spoiler. The independents are: Vicki Huntington (Delta South), Bob Simpson (Cariboo North), John van Dongen (Abbotsford South), Arthur Hadland (Peace River North) and Moe Gill (Abbotsford West). It would appear that Huntington has the best chance of being elected, since she’s already proven she can be elected as an Independent. I would rank Hadland, who took almost a third of the vote in 2009, as standing

the next best chance of winning (he’s campaigning partly on his opposition to the Site C dam project, which will stand him well with voters in the Peace River region). I wouldn’t count van Dongen out either. He’ll be in a tight three- or fourway race where a relatively low vote count can prove victorious. The Green Party may prove to be the most interesting group to watch. It is perfectly positioned to attract voters who are fed up with the B.C. Liberals but are not willing to throw their support behind the NDP. The Greens are like a novelty act. There’s no harm in voting for them even if you don’t like their platform since they have no hope of forming government. A

vote for the Greens can be a protest vote of sorts. The Greens almost won a federal byelection recently in Victoria, which was supposed to be a cakewalk for the NDP. The party attracted support from the other three main federal parties. In fact, the capital region is fertile ground for the Greens and it is where the party will likely post its strongest showing. Two ridings in particular are ones to watch. In Saanich North, the Green candidate is Adam Olsen, a popular local councillor and small businessman. The word is he has ex-B.C. Liberal political staffers volunteering for him, while the B.C. Liberals can’t even find a candidate (it’s also worth noting this riding elected federal Green

Party leader Elizabeth May). In Oak Bay-Gordon Head, noted climate change scientist Andrew Weaver is the star Green Party candidate. In both ridings, a lot of votes would have to swing away from the B.C. Liberals and go to the Greens for either candidate to win, but it’s certainly possible. I’d be surprised if the B.C. Conservatives have the same potential attractiveness as the Greens. But in some pockets of the province the party will likely do better than it did in 2009, to the detriment of the B.C. Liberals. Add it up, and there’s a decent chance of anywhere from two to a half-dozen seats going to someone not running for the NDP or the B.C. Liberals.

NDP SMELLS BLOOD

It will be interesting to see if the B.C. Liberals can maintain internal caucus discipline in the upcoming legislative session. The party’s majority has narrowed to just four seats (plus the Speaker). Luckily for the government, there’s not expected to be a lot of votes since there won’t be a heavy legislative agenda. But there may be opportunities for the NDP, sensing there may be one too many B.C. Liberal MLAs away from the legislature, to spring the occasional trap and embarrass the government by winning votes on procedural motions.

Accepting autism brought peace to our family New interchange is a vast improvement

read autism treatment story with The Editor, Re: “Autism treatment: take a number,” the Now, Feb. 5. It is sad to see that 11 years after my son was officially diagnosed with autism, people are still struggling to have their children diagnosed and waiting for services. My son, who is almost 17, was diagnosed when he was six years old. He finally started to speak in sentences after his fourth year but the social skills were just not there. Now in high school, he has trouble socially – peers reject him because he is different. The kids that were his “friends” in elementary school pretended not to know him or bullied him as soon as they hit high school, which is sad. We had him in social groups and did everything that we were told to do to help him. We had to fight for every support with the Surrey school district in the early days and spent countless hours in meetings trying to get help at the school level with that $18,000 that the school system provides for autistic kids. What a fight. It turned us into bitter, anxiety ridden, crazed people. And the $6,000 to help him at home we had to navigate as best we could. In our experience, the behaviour interventionists were little more then special babysitters and we did not find them online – they were provided by agencies. Over the years, we have realized that no matter what we did, our son had autism and that was never going to change. Yes, he can talk and he is doing well in school and is on track to graduate, but everything else that comes with autism is still there and will never go away. No amount of stressing out and fighting will change that. The province needs to set up a better system for autism funding/help – like a centre where families go to in their communities. These centres should provide them with diagnosis, a behaviour plan

Christine Long spent two-and-a-half years waiting to get her non-verbal autistic son Finn intensive speech therapy. Their story appeared in the Feb. 5 issue of the ‘Now.’ If you missed it, you can read it by scanning this photo using Layar. (Photo: JACOB ZINN) as what should be done (speech therapy, behaviour therapy, etc.) and then go from there. Parents should not be left to figure out on their own and have to wait on ridiculously long waiting lists. We have accepted the fact that our son’s life will always be different from others his age. With this we have let go and let the cards fall where they may. All that is important to us now is that he is happy and safe. No amount of therapy made any difference in his life. Our days of stressing out are long over and because of this we are all at peace. C. Litonjua, Surrey

Residents needed more casino notice The Editor, Re: “Gateway wants to clarify history of casino saga,” the Now, Feb. 7. Many residents of South Surrey were not aware of this proposal – whatever press releases, surveys or impact assessments

that were done by Gateway, BCLC, Surrey city hall or the provincial government were obviously not open enough. To satisfy all concerned parties, awareness of impacts on the community from such projects as a casino should not be just a small notice in some local newspapers. For subdivisions and small road changes this form of information is acceptable. Something like this casino altering a quiet rural neighbourhood obviously should have had a mail-out to all the local residents. A mail-out was sent to less than 20 adjacent residents. Maybe 5,000 to local residents would have been more appropriate. The other part of this complex stated South Surrey needs a hotel and conference centre. Well, there is one at the other side of Highway 99 on King George Boulevard – The Pacific Inn. Maybe James Chen recalls at our local residents meeting, there were close to 500 hundred people inside one of the Pacific Inn’s conference rooms. Adequate and comfortable in its size to inform you and BCLC “you are not welcome in our community.” Martin Cooper, Surrey

The Editor, Re: “Another bridge flaw,” the Now, Feb. 5. Jatinder Sandhu is correct – HOV drivers must use 156th Street in order to be in the HOV lane and receive the HOV discount when they pass under the toll gantry. What I’d like to point out is these new dedicated HOV ramps are designed to complement the larger improvements of the 152nd Street Interchange. In fact, I expect many HOV drivers will prefer using the new 156th Street ramps over the traditional entrance and exit at 152nd Street. The 156th Street interchange is a brand new set of on- and off-ramps built to provide fast, efficient and convenient access to the Highway 1 HOV lane for HOV vehicles. 152nd Street has traditionally been one of the busiest interchanges on the Port Mann/Highway 1 corridor, and giving HOV vehicles their own, dedicated ramps at 156th Street makes Highway 1 access from Surrey more efficient. These new HOV ramps are less than a minute away from 152nd Street, and entering and exiting via 156th shouldn’t add any additional travel time for most drivers. Having HOV traffic use these new ramps will also take some pressure off the 152nd Street interchange, which has been one of the primary causes of the traffic bottleneck at the east end of the Port Mann Bridge. The new wider bridge, a new 152nd Street interchange and HOV access via 156th Street are all working together to clear what was once the worst traffic bottleneck in B.C. The new HOV and transit ramps at 156th Street are just one of the many HOV and transit investments included in the Port Mann/Highway 1 Improvement Project.

Fundraiser ‘is our baby’ at Ricky’s

Nina Aurora (pictured with her sons Rahul, 4, and Joshua, 7) is thankful to Variety for the help the charity has given her following the premature birth of her youngest son. Variety provides supplies for Rahul, including equipment to run a feeding tube inserted into his stomach. (Photo: KEVIN HILL)

47th annual Show of Hearts Telethon

Thankful for Variety’s help Volunteer with Carolyn Cooke

Now staff Twitter @carolyncooke1

When Rahul was born at Surrey Memorial Hospital in 2008, new mom Nina Aurora only saw her baby for a few seconds before he was rushed out of the room. Rahul was born five weeks early, and among the congenital problems he faced right off the bat was esophageal trachea, meaning his esophagus was attached to his windpipe instead of being a fully connected canal between his mouth and stomach. Soon Rahul had an operation at B.C. Children’s Hospital to correct the condition and had a feeding tube inserted into his stomach, which he still has and will for some time yet. Aurora, a mortgage broker in Surrey, said it was “stressful for the first few years. He was also born without a spleen.” That fact was mentioned in passing when they were preparing to check Rahul out of the hospital. Without a spleen the baby had no immunity or ability to fight off common bacteria. “For the first two years I kind of hibernated at home,” said Aurora. “I didn’t go out much, didn’t let my older son go to preschool or anything because I was afraid of what he’d bring home. I

had to be very careful for the first two years.” At two years, Rahul was able to get a vaccination to help protect him from the most common forms of bacteria. But to make matters worse, Aurora and her husband split up shortly after Rahul came home from the hospital. “Financially, I took such a bit hit that I started to panic because his supplies are so expensive,” she said. For example, Rahul’s feeding machine costs more than $2,000, each daily feeding bag is $10 and then there is the formula, she noted. If the Gtube comes out, they need to rush to the hospital to have it replaced, which costs about $300. “Those kind of costs for a single mom are hard,” she said. “They’re hard for a working family, never mind a single mom.” Aurora said her doctor helped her to apply for various kinds of assistance and programs, but “I just kept missing them by a hair.” Eventually, Variety - The Children’s Charity approved Aurora’s application. “I don’t even have words to explain what they did for me. I needed them and they came through for me, and I get overwhelmed even today when I think about it.” Variety covers supplies for Rahul and that has lifted one of Aurora’s main stressors, she said. Once she knew her baby’s special needs were met, she could pay the rent, groceries and other basic needs for her and her two children without fearing the worst.

I needed them and they came through for me, and I get overwhelmed even today when I think about it. One thing Aurora emphasized is that the people at Variety are a joy to deal with, and they never judge her for needing a helping hand. Asking for help is tough, she said, especially for someone who came from a well-off home. Just recently Aurora took a huge step in deciding to share her story at a Variety event. Public speaking was a bit scary, never mind sharing her family’s story, but she did it because she wanted others to know how much the charity means to her family. “It would really help if other moms come out because it helps other people understand what (Variety) does do for people like me, and it shows that the work really does help.” She may have a chance to share her story again at the 47th annual Show of Hearts Telethon on Feb. 16 and 17. It is the signature fundraising event for Variety. Last year’s telethon brought in nearly $7 million. The Global BC broadcast will feature a mix of concerts and interviews with Chantal Kreviazuk, Adele, VH1 Divas, Rihanna, Paul McCartney, Justin Beiber, Elton John and Michael Bublé.

Ricky’s restaurant in Central City is holding its annual fundraiser for Variety’s upcoming Show of Hearts Telethon. The fundraiser, held during restaurant hours on Feb. 16 and 17, features raffles with great prizes like signed sports jerseys, a laptop and other items donated by the owner, and his friends and family. Avtar Bains, who owns the Central City eatery, said that for every order made during those two days, they donate $5, no matter how much or little the cost. “A lot of our staff will also donate their hours for the weekend as well,” he said, and that money goes into the donation to Variety. “Of all our achievements – and we’ve had record sales every year – this is our baby,” said Bains. Even some staff who no longer work at Ricky’s come by to lend a hand on the Variety weekend. Bains explained that his drive to help others started at a young age when his grandparents took him and his siblings to a downtown drop-in centre to hand out homemade Indian meals or hundreds of hotdogs to needy people. Over the past seven years of annual fundraisers for Variety, Bains and the staff at Ricky’s, which is managed by his son, have netted more than $55,000 for Variety. On the morning of Sunday, Feb. 17, they will make the official presentation of more than $11,000 from last year’s event that will be shown live on the Show of Hearts. And, of course, you will be able to watch the broadcast at Ricky’s in Central City. Bains is encouraging everyone to stop by at any time during the telethon weekend and “have even toast just to make us donate $5 on your behalf.” Their goal is to beat last year’s total and every little bit helps.

As a team, they wanted to do something to help raise awareness and fight lung disease. “I’ve heard it’s not easy to do,” MacDonald said of the 739-step Climb at Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre Hotel. “But we really don’t care if it takes us 10 minutes or two hours, we’ll do it – even if we have to crawl up those stairs.” MacDonald, a Newton resident, said she’s getting in shape for the challenge.

Jennifer MacDonald is preparing herself for 48 floors of sweat, tears and smiles when she does this year’s Climb the Wall event in Vancouver on March 3. She’s a first-time Climber attempting the charity fundraiser in honour of her late mother, who would have turned 63 today (Feb. 12). The annual event, in its 12th year, benefits BC Lung Association research, education and advocacy programs. MacDonald and her two “Stair Hogs” teammates – Judy and Dominique Parker – are closing in on their current goal to raise $1,500 for the cause. MacDonald’s mother Annie-Jean, or A.J., succumbed to lung cancer in 2010. Her pal Judy’s mom, Agnes Felder, was also diagnosed with lung cancer at around the same time.

“I’m walking more, and that includes doing the stairs in our townhouse. I’m going up and down the stairs for 15 or 30 minutes at a time, whenever I can find the time.” To participate, Climbers must each pay $25 to register and commit to raising at least $125. In return, they’re given a T-shirt, post-event brunch and a chance to win a trip for two to Bermuda. Last year’s event raised $190,000. The fastest Climb time was four minutes, 25 seconds; most got it done in 10 or 15 minutes. “Some participants climb for themselves, others to honour a friend or family member affected by lung disease,” stated Kate Jarvis, organizer of Climb the Wall. “And while each participant’s motivation is different, their reward is the same: making a difference in the lives of the one in five British Columbians affected by lung disease.” To get involved in the event, or to make a donation, visit www. stairclimb.ca or call 604731-LUNG (5864).

COMMUNITY Guildford Park Secondary

Student’s design helps anti-bullying movement Christopher Poon

Now staff Twitter @questionchris

Grade 12 student Bea Venzon created the official T-shirt design for Anti-Bully Day events on Feb. 27. the anti-bullying movement, Venzon said the issue was one that struck her as being something that could be changed, with a little effort. “It’s just that bullying is one small thing that could have lifelong repercussions for people so preventing it would have such an impact on someone’s life,” she said. “Nobody deserves to get bullied for their race, sexual orientation, financial status, disability, gender, religion, perceived subculture or for anything at all.” Following her final year in high school, Venzon hopes to pursue sciences at postsecondary, but said she’s still interested in continuing to be active in social advocacy. “I’m going into the sciences but things like art and film are a hobby to me and people in the group and that’s how we choose to present our ideas,” she said. “I’m still looking forward to doing more of that.”

“You can’t shake hands with a closed fist.” It was a quote uttered by former Indian Prime Minister Indira Ghandi during peace talks in the 1970s and was one of the first things that popped into the head of Guildford Park Secondary student Bea Venzon when it came time to create a design for anti-bullying. With that in mind, the Grade 12 student created an image of two hands forming a heart shape. This past week, that image was selected out of 400 to be the official T-shirt design for this year’s Anti-Bullying day in Surrey on Feb. 27, and that design will go on to be worn by more than 10,000 people. For the 17-year-old Venzon, the selection was unexpected, to say the least. “I was quite surprised because it was very last-minute (and) I only started working on it the night before the deadline,” she said, laughing. “I found it quite interesting because fists are a symbol for traditional schoolyard bullying, and the fact that you can use the same appendage for spreading peace, acceptance and friendship.” However, taking part in socially-driven activities isn’t anything new for the Surrey youth, as Venzon was part of a group of students that won first place in the City of Surrey’s anti-bullying film contest last spring. “My friends and I, we’re all part of the GayStraight Alliance in my school and we’ve been doing these kinds of activities since 2009,” she said.

Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet will be taking a day off work Thursday to sing for sweethearts across Metro Vancouver. It’s a Valentine’s Day ritual of his, as a member of The Gentlemen of Fortune choir. On Feb. 14 each year, members of the group split into barbershop quartets and sing love songs for a fee, with part proceeds going to Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society and local youth singing programs. For as little as $50, it’s a one-of-a-kind gift delivered in four-part harmony, with a rose and chocolates thrown in. “People are usually very surprised when we show up, and thrilled,” said Paquet, who

It’s something a little different.” Paquet, a baritone, has been singing barbershop since 2004 – three years with The Gentlemen of Fortune and six with Chilliwack Harmony Chorus. “It’s phenomenal,” he said of the music. “I’ve always found it intriguing that four voices can produce that sound without background music.” On Valentine’s Day, the roving quartets aim to keep the love songs more modern, he added.

New director brings energy to the Vaudevillians See photos with

Tom Zillich

Now staff Twitter @tomzillich

On a grey Monday afternoon, the lyrics of the bright number “Red, Red Robin” fill a hall in North Delta – over and over again, with some stumbling over a line or two. On stage, five women – Dorothy Perkins, Bernadette Ray, Alannah Jacques, Doris Carruthers and Penny DeSanto – are coached along by Marilyn Remus, the new artistic director of the Vaudevillians seniors’ entertainment troupe. “I throw quite a bit at them sometimes,” Remus said later, “and for some of them it’s hard to sing the words and do the motions at the same time. But they’re getting it. These are seniors, bless their hearts.” Remus has clearly given new energy to the troupe, which will celebrate its 10th anniversary with a big show in November. At the moment, Remus is honing some of the song, dance and comedy numbers the Vaudevillians will perform at a variety of

Marilyn Remus (foreground), new artistic director with The Vaudevillians, relaxes for a moment while the seniors’ entertainment troupe rehearses a number on a recent Monday afternoon at Kennedy Seniors’ Recreation Centre in North Delta. (Photo: TOM ZILLICH) places this spring and summer. “We’re drinking Geritol,” Remus said with a laugh. “They have a lot of energy, I gotta give it to them, but it’s about putting that energy into the number, to best reflect it.”

Remus recently moved back to B.C. from Florida. In the U.S., she toured the country for two decades as director and choreographer with the Rogers company. Last spring, she saw a newspaper story about the troupe and

decided to get involved behind the scenes. Pat Trimble, who dances and sings with the Vaudevillians, said Remus has definitely brought great energy to the group. “Marilyn can really connect with the people here, and she knows how to tell you that you’ve done something wrong without making you feel bad about it – you get the message in a good way,” Trimble said. “She’s very, very good at what she does.… It’s just so invigorating working with her.” Likewise, Remus is enjoying the experience of directing the two-dozen Vaudevillians. “It’s been a difficult time for them, having lost a director and some challenges that way, so they need that solid support, and I hope I give that to them,” said Remus, who lives in New Westminster. “You know, they’re so good to me; I don’t have a car and they’ll come pick me up (for rehearsals at Kennedy seniors’ rec centre) and bring me home again.” From January to June, seniors are welcome to audition for the busy troupe. “We invite them to come here and see what we do, on any Monday from 1 to 4 p.m.,” Trimble said. “Every year, we lose a few people and gain a few. That’s just the reality of it.” For details about the troupe, call 604-5419591 or visit www.thevaudevillians.com.

COMMUNITY Eating contest

‘Spice Off’ stalemate See video with A much-anticipated “Spice Off ” eating competition between two Now reporters resulted in a draw Thursday afternoon. Held at the infamous Chili Pepper House at 96th Avenue and 128th Street in Surrey, the competition pitted young reporters Christopher Poon and Jacob Zinn against one another in a competition to eat the most spicy food without conceding defeat. With both having finished all of their

meals, the competition continued back at the Now office, where shots of hot sauce were consumed to determine a winner. After two shots a piece, it was decided that, for the time being, the contest would be a draw. The battle is set to continue in the coming week. To suggest further spicy challenges for the reporters to partake in, tweet your idea to @thenownewspaper with the hashtag #spiceoff. (No ghost peppers.)

Memory is more complex than most people realize, and while some changes do happen with time, losing one’s memory is not a normal part of aging. That was the take-home message from a presentation called “Memory and Aging” at George Mackie Library last week. The talk, given by Annette O’Connor on behalf of the Council of Senior Citizens’ Organizations of British Columbia (COSCO), covered how memory works, different types of memory, how it changes (or not) as we age, causes of memory-related problems, tips for improving your memory and when to seek professional help. O’Connor, a retired math teacher from

Langley, began by noting that memory is basically “one’s ability to remember information and experiences.” “Memory loss is a great concern for seniors.” However, once people are in their 20s, they begin to lose some of their memory function. While age does affect people’s memory to a degree, memory loss is different than memory decline. Memory loss is forgetting the name of your spouse or child, not being able to find your way home or habitual problems like regularly forgetting to take your medications or leaving the stove on. Those are signs of serious diseases, like dementia and Alzheimer’s, O’Connor said, and they require medical attention. “The problem is we don’t recognize it in ourselves,” she said. “We need to rely on family or friends to help us.” see › page 25

FOREVER YOUNG Memory and aging

‘Brown bag’ it for your next doctor’s visit ‹ from page 24

There are different kinds of memory, such as episodic versus working memory (remembering where you were on 9/11 versus remembering your shopping list), and some are quite stable throughout one’s lifetime. There are plenty of things that can interfere with memory though, and most can be addressed in one way or another. For example, some medications cause memory problems as a side effect, as do poor diet, being dehydrated, prolonged stress or anxiety, sudden illness like the flu, and even a poor night of sleep. One thing O’Connor suggested seniors do is “brown bag” it at your next doctor’s appointment. This is when you bring along a bag with the bottles of everything you take, even the over-the-counter drugs and supplements, and have your doctor review them with you. People can also have a medicine review with their pharmacist, she said. To do this, make an appointment, at which you will go over every single thing you take, including

over-the-counter drugs, vitamins and supplements and prescriptions. The pharmacist will know if there are any that cause memory problems as a side effect, as well as if there are any that have problematic interactions. O’Connor also had suggestions to help people improve or maintain their memory, including getting some physical exercise, being social, eating a balanced healthy diet and keeping your mind active. That would involve learning new things, reading, doing crosswords or other puzzles and trivia games. One really big help, and not just for seniors, is to learn to manage stress. Strategies here also include exercise as well as setting boundaries and learning to say “no.” Just because you are retired doesn’t mean you had all day to do other people’s bidding, she said. “Memory and Aging” is one of 36 free workshops offered by COSCO, online at coscobc.ca.

High school wrestling

Slamfest 10 will be no slam dunk for Sabres Michael Booth

Now staff Twitter @boothnow

The calendar says it’s a day for romance, but there will be no love shown on the mats this Valentine’s Day as Surrey high school wrestlers compete for city bragging rights. Sponsored by the Surrey Firefighters, Surrey Slamfest 10 goes Thursday afternoon at Guildford Park Secondary and this time the outcome is in doubt before the first shoulder is pinned to the mats. The Guildford Park Sabres have won every one of the previous editions of the competition, thanks to coaches Mark McCrae and Bryan Stretch, two former Sabres who have revived the school’s dominance in the sport. “It’s a pride thing for us,” said McCrae, who competed in Guildford Park green in the 1980s. “When Bryan and I were at Guildford Park way back when we were wrestling we had won it (Surrey championship) 15 years in a row. Essentially it’s the same tournament only now it’s sponsored by the firefighters. It was a pride thing back then and the tournament was usually very competitive. It’s kind of gotten that way again and we do take pride in it because the Surrey wrestling community is pretty strong and the quality is really high. Some of the teams don’t have the depth that we have and that’s usually what wins out in events like this.” McRae said while the Sabres have some outstanding talent in the lower grades, he is

The Surrey Firefighters’ Slamfest 10 high school wrestling tourney will take place on Thursday afternoon. Former Guildford Park Sabres wrestlers Arminder Virk (left) and Josh Beattie are part of the legacy of the event as both men were recently hired as firefighters in Surrey. The duo will be on hand for the competition as coaches with their old school. (Photo: KEVIN HILL) casting a wary eye toward Cloverdale where Lord Tweedsmuir’s Panthers are poised to pounce. The Panthers are led by Grade 12 Jaskarn Ranu, the defending provincial champion at 76-kilograms and one of the top grapplers in the province in any weight class. Lord Tweedsmuir’s Arshvir Atwal (69-kgs) and Tyler Dilman (66-kgs) are also expected to do well at the B.C. tourney. “I think this year will be the first year in a long time where Slamfest is going to be really

close,” McRae said. “Lord Tweedsmuir is very good and I would say they’re probably the favourites going into it. They’re probably stronger than us and their high-end guys are very high end.” That’s not to say the cupboard is bare at Guildford Park. Will Thamavong (57-kgs) has made remarkable progress in just two years of training and is a threat to medal at the provincials. Grade 9 wrestler Gagan Hundal (51-kgs) and Grade 10 Diego Esparza (48-kgs) are also improving rapidly, as are

female wrestlers Adriana Miteva (54-kgs) and Zion Lee (57-kgs). The Surrey Firefighters have sponsored the revival of the local high school wrestling scene and the impact of their contributions is beginning to show not only on the mats, but in Surrey fire halls as well. Two former Guildford Park wrestlers — Arminder Virk and Josh Beattie — were recently hired as firefighters by the City of Surrey and both volunteer as coaches with their old school in their spare time.

The Surrey RCMP is reviewing a coroner’s inquest jury’s recommendations following the tragic death of a young Surrey woman who was struck down by a Mountie’s patrol car on King George Boulevard. “We respect the inquest verdict and its recommendations,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet. He added they will “require some time” to review. “We are looking at all the opportunities to improve on the policing service.” Ashley Christine Guiboche, 18, was killed shortly before midnight on Jan. 31, 2011 while jaywalking across the boulevard, near the King George SkyTrain Station. The northern strip of King George in Whalley is notorious for collisions involving pedestrians. Four pedestrians have been killed along the strip in the past few years. The three-day inquest, presided over last week by coroner Vincent Stancato, heard that Surrey RCMP Const. Albert Luk had been travelling about 90 kilometres an hour, in response to a call about a stolen vehicle, when his patrol car hit Guiboche.

‘Childish’ shirts take shot at city Website owner thinks parody is hilarious but Hayne says Surrey jokes getting old email now with Jacob Zinn

Now contributor Twitter @jacobzinn

Surrey is still trying to shake its reputation as one of Canada’s most crime-riddled cities following a series of controversial T-shirts that are making the rounds online. At the end of January, the City of Surrey sent a cease-and-desist order meant for Don Pitcairn, the resident behind T-shirt parody website surreyshirts. com, opposing several shirts on his website that purportedly put Surrey in a poor light. The designs included such slogans as “The Future Dies Here” – in reference to the city’s motto – and “Better Safe than Surrey,” which was brandished with

six bullet holes next to a semiautomatic pistol. “‘The Future Dies Here,’ that shirt has an anti-gun, anti-gang message to it,” said Pitcairn, who learned about the letter after it was addressed to Jason Arsenault of surreyclothing.com, another resident who designs edgy Surreythemed shirts. “We thought it was kind of ironic that the city would take offence to it, especially considering we had five gun murders supposedly all linked to organized crime in January alone.” The order cited trademarks on the city’s current logo, including “the future lives here” tagline, as well as the historic “Welcome to Surrey” beaver logo, which appeared in similar designs on two other shirts. The order called for ceased production and sale of the merchandise and that all existing products be removed from the

(Photo: JACOB ZINN) website and destroyed. “To say that they think they have copyright protection on the logo that we designed that has a handgun, they’d better have a Glock 9mm on the Surrey signs in order to say that,” said Pitcairn. “That shirt has a message and maybe they just didn’t get it.” When asked about the parody of the city’s logo, Coun. Bruce Hayne – whose former company thornleyHAYNE Creative Communications designed the city’s current logo and tagline – called the redesign “unfortunate” and “childish.” “It goes to a lack of taste and a lack of judgment,” said Hayne. “What we created six or seven years ago as the new brand of Surrey, I think, is holding up extremely well.”

While he acknowledged that parody is permitted under law, he finds the slogans themselves to be worn-out potshots at the city. “Surrey now is being seen as an up-and-coming and exciting place to be, so I don’t think those old Surrey jokes of 20 years ago are applicable at all today,” he said. “I think people will see it for what it is, and it’s, as I said, a rather sophomoric and sad attempt at humour.” Pitcairn said that while he believes more and more people are proud to be from Surrey, its reputation for crime is still relevant today. “Surrey, unfortunately, is synonymous with gangland shootings,” said Pitcairn, adding that Surrey’s reputation for gang violence is known across Canada.

“This is something that we need to take control of.” He added that he felt the logos produced for Surrey Shirts were distinguished enough from the originals that any legal action against his website would be outside the city’s copyright, or that his work would be protected under political satire. He claims to have used different fonts in the lettering of the designs, among other changes. “You copyright your logo, not similarities,” he said. In the wake of widespread media coverage, the City of Surrey has backed down on the ceaseand-desist order. The city’s legal department has not yet responded to the Now’s requests for an interview.

Sukh Dhaliwal announces he is dropping out as a B.C. Liberal MLA candidate on Friday afternoon in Surrey. (Photo: JACOB ZINN)

Former Surrey Liberal MP Sukh Dhaliwal dashed out of his own press conference Friday afternoon – with cameramen chasing him out to the parking lot. This was after reporters peppered him with questions about when he first found out charges had been laid against him and his wife under the Income

Tax Act, and when he told the B.C. Liberal party about it. Dhaliwal had called the press conference to announce he was dropping out as the B.C. Liberals’ MLA candidate for SurreyPanorama Ridge in the coming provincial election. He said the past few days had been “extremely difficult” for himself and his family, after news of the charges broke on Thursday. “I want to make sure I take care of the outstanding matters that are in front of the courts,” he said. Dhaliwal noted that people who seek public office have to be committed to the highest

standards of behaviour. As an MP, he said, “I lived those principles.” He said he didn’t want this matter to be a distraction for the governing Liberal party as it heads into the May 14 election. The press conference started to go sideways for Dhaliwal after one reporter bluntly asked him how a former MP, who has run a company, and been an MLA candidate for the B.C. Liberals, could end up in “this holy mess.” “We are all human beings,” a flustered Dhaliwal replied. see DHALIWAL › page 5

*Life span of hearing aid conservatively estimated at 5 years.

Definitely maybe. Surrey Liberal MLA Dave Hayer is still playing coy concerning rumours he’s planning to take a run at federal politics in the 2015 general election. “In response to rumours that I will be running for office in the next federal election, slated for 2015, I want to confirm that at this time I am devoting all of my attention to my current role as MLA for Surrey-Tynehead,” Hayer told the Now on Friday. “However, over the past couple of years I have been approached many times, by many people, to seek a seat as a Member of Parliament. I have considered those suggestions carefully.” Last July, Hayer, the veteran MLA for Surrey-Tynehead revealed he would not be running for office in the provincial general election this coming May 14. “Part of that decision was that if reelected as MLA in May 2013, then I decided to run federally in 2015, I would have triggered an expensive bylection, which I believe is the wrong thing to do for my constituents,” he explained Friday. Last summer, Hayer was non-committal about rumours he was considering running under the Conservative banner in Surrey in 2015, and remains so today. Still, rumours have persisted concerning his alleged intentions, and are all over the map. By some accounts he’s eyeballing Fleetwood-Port Kells, currently held by Tory

MP Nina Grewal, and by others, Surrey-White Rock Cloverdale, held by Tory Russ Hiebert. The Tories asked him to run as their candidate in Newton-North Delta in the May 2012 Dave Hayer federal election, but he declined. Hayer told the Now last July that if he did decide to run for MP, it would likely be in the new North Surrey-Guildford riding proposed by the Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission. That riding, he noted, would contain about 95 per cent of his Surrey-Tynehead constituency. “Even if I do decide to run federally, I cannot say in which seat I would consider running in since the federal riding boundaries won’t even be determined until later this year,” he said Friday. Hayer has served as a Liberal MLA for 11 years. Despite his reticence about this running for MP business, he did serve up a resumé of sorts: “I believe that given my three terms as serving as MLA for Surrey-Tynehead, listening and working on constituent issues that encompass all three levels of government and my personal experience in dealing with many issues involving the justice system, there is much that I can bring to the federal government in terms of issues that are on the minds of British Columbians. I look forward to the upcoming months.”

Dhaliwal told Boulevard must be made safer: jury Liberals about woes Wednesday ‹ from page 1

‹ from page 3

Dhaliwal said he wasn’t aware of the charges until after he was acclaimed as candidate. A party press released dated Oct. 31, 2012, said he’d been acclaimed. He said the charges arise from difficulty obtaining information from other sources, but didn’t elaborate on that. “There’s no tax evasion, just income tax filing,” he said. Friday’s press conference was at the Grand Taj Banquet Hall in Newton, where less than a week earlier Dhaliwal and Premier Christy Clark had glad-handed with a crowd of nearly 800 of Dhaliwal’s supporters during his $125-a-plate campaign fundraiser. The B.C. Liberal Party, at Clark’s direction, sent out a press release Friday morning that Dhaliwal’s candidacy was under review by a committee bearing the unwieldy title of Candidate Approval Subcommittee of the Provincial Election Readiness Committee. Sam Oliphant, a spokesman for the party, wouldn’t discuss who’s on the committee or when the review was expected to conclude. “We don’t release that information,” he said. The party’s press release stated that Dhaliwal disclosed his “legal situation” to party officials on Wednesday. Several hours before Friday’s press conference, Dhaliwal’s campaign manager Al Payne told the Now that the beleaguered politician was “in good spirits.” Dhaliwal told the Now last Thursday that he didn’t know he was facing six charges under the Income Tax Act when the B.C. Liberal Party chose him to be its candidate for Surrey-Panorama in the coming provincial election. The former Liberal MP for Newton-North Delta and his wife, Roni, have been charged with failing to comply with the Income Tax Act in connection with Genko Consultants Inc., of which Sukh is president and Roni is the secretary. Sukh faces six charges, and Roni, 14.

The jury heard Luk did not have his lights or sirens on and seconds before the crash had been distracted by a message on his car’s mobile data terminal. The jury found that Guiboche’s death was accidental. It made six recommendations; one being that the City of Surrey, ICBC and TransLink “find a solution to the serious jaywalking problem” on King George Boulevard between 98th and 100th avenues, and that an overhead walkway over the King George and a crosswalk at 98B Avenue be

considered “a priority.” The jury also recommended that Mounties receive more frequent training concerning the Motor Vehicle Act and emergency driving regulations, and that the RCMP programs its patrol car equipment to transmit audible text of all incoming messages that would enable the officers to respond verbally and hands-free while driving. Luk still serves with the Surrey RCMP. He had been with the RCMP for two years at the time of the collision.

RCMP recognizes Surrey’s ‘ultimate volunteers’ Please

Recycle a message from

The RCMP and city hall honoured Surrey’s 86 auxiliary constables as the “ultimate volunteers” Thursday, during a ceremony at Eaglequest Coyote golf course. The auxiliary constable program has been running in Surrey since the 1960s and is the biggest in Canada. The auxiliaries are uniformed volunteers and serve alongside Mounties. Last year, they volunteered more than 20,000 hours all told, with two of the auxiliary constables volunteering more than 800 hours each and nine volunteering more than 500 hours.

“Auxiliary constables are an integral part of our crime reduction strategy, strengthening bonds with the community and helping our citizens get involved with strategies that support crime prevention initiatives,” said Surrey RCMP Chief Supt. Bill Fordy. “Since the 1960s officers in Surrey have had the privilege of working alongside these dedicated men and women.” Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts said the city is “extremely fortunate to have such a strong and committed auxiliary constable team.”

Bus driver hurt after helping

RETHINK WASTE COLLECTION NOTICE

A Coast Mountain bus driver who stopped to help a motorist in need was injured Friday morning during a chain of traffic crashes at Scott Road and 96th Avenue. Surrey Mounties are investigating. Cpl. Bert Paquet said that shortly before 9 a.m. Friday a Honda Accord’s engine caught fire after the car rear-ended a Volvo that had stopped in traffic, waiting to make a left turn. The bus driver then came to the rescue. He parked his bus, grabbed his on-board fire extinguisher and began putting out the flames, creating a cloud of smoke and extinguisher spray. A Toyota 4-Runner rear-ended the by then unoccupied Accord, which in turn knocked the bus driver down onto the pavement, leaving him with cuts and bruises.

Business leaders want cheaper childcare Surrey Board of Trade urges feds to create affordable childcare policy Jacob Zinn

Now contributor Twitter @jacobzinn

The Surrey and Burnaby boards of trade are calling on the provincial and federal governments to make childcare more affordable – not just in their respective cities, but across the country. The Surrey Board of Trade hosted the second annual Business and Families First Dialogue last Tuesday to discuss ways to lower the cost of quality childcare to $10 per day in an effort to help working parents achieve healthy work-life balances. The aim is to decrease stress and increase productivity for career-minded parents, and also to reduce the impact that looking after a child has on their work. “What we’re asking the federal government to do is to change Anita Huberman how they create their budget to improve efficiencies so that there is a childcare policy in place for Canada,” said Anita Huberman, CEO of the SBoT. “There’s nothing existing at this point in time.” According to SFU, the average monthly cost of childcare for infants and toddlers is $1,200, while children between the ages of three and five cost about $809 per month for childcare. The recommendations for more affordable childcare were drafted by the SBoT’s Social Policy Team and presented to the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in 2012. However, the chamber noted it didn’t want to increase taxes for businesses and sought other sources to fund the subsidies. Surrey-Panorama MLA Stephanie Cadieux, who is also the Minister of Children and Family Development, attended the dialogue to brainstorm ways to reduce the cost of childcare. “She did indicate that because of the current fiscal situation of the B.C. government that the first recommendation was to reform the childcare subsidy system so that parents pay no more than $10 a day, making it free for families earning less than $40,000 a year,” said Huberman. Huberman said the SBoT is in talks with other boards

of trade in an effort to get national support for the recommendations, which she plans to take before the Canadian Chamber in Ottawa this September. The effort is already gaining ground following a recent landmark federal court decision that indicated workplaces are obliged to accommodate childcare-related requests, within reason.

“I feel a little bit more confident that we will be taken seriously,” she said. “We have the economic research and statistics to back us up. There are small steps in terms of changing the philosophy, the mindset on creating childcare policies in the province. This is an opportunity for B.C. to really take a leadership role.”

Surrey principal among Canada’s top educators share with Christopher Poon

Now staff Twitter @questionchris

A Surrey principal has been named one of the top principals in Canada for 2013. Strawberry Hill Elementary’s Raminder Randhawa recently learned he was selected as one of the top 51 educators in the country for 2013 Canada’s Outstanding Principals, an annual program put on by The Learning Partnership, a national education advocacy group. Randhawa, who was nominated by his staff prior to Christmas, said the selection reflects more on his school than on him as an individual. “As you know, schools are places where teams of teachers and educators work very hard to help kids learn, help them make it in life and I am just sort of a cheerleader in the back who supports these teams of educators,” he said. “The selection is a tribute to the people I work with because a principal is just one part of a school of teachers that work very,

(Photo: KEVIN HILL) very hard and I am just proud to be part of that team. “I’m honoured, and at the same time, humbled by the selection.” For being selected, Randhawa will join the other winners from across Canada in Toronto later this month for a gala awards dinner.

The principals will also participate in a special training program during their trip, a leadership program from the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management. “There will be a whole bunch of workshops and further opportunities to see where one can cheerlead and support other educators,” said Randhawa.

The win comes in Randhawa’s second year at the helm of Strawberry Hill Elementary and prior to his current stint, he was principal at Cougar Creek Elementary for five years. According to Akela Peoples, president and CEO of The Learning Partnership, the yearly awards are a chance for leaders in education to get the recognition they deserve. “Behind every great school is a great principal who is not only an outstanding educator, but an excellent manager and leader,” said Peoples. “We are thrilled to be recognizing these individuals as examples of excellence in public education.” But while Randhawa is grateful for the recognition, he reiterates that it’s not his award alone. “I honestly feel it is a tribute to the team I work with and really important to honour their work,” he said. “As the systems are set up it’s only one person that gets recognized, but I cannot overemphasize the fact that the parents, teachers and the various professionals that work with the schools is part of this. It’s all a collaboration.”

‘Protest’ votes may equal seats InTheHouse Keith Baldrey

W

hile the two major political parties garner most of the attention in this province, I wonder whether other parties and independent candidates will have a larger impact on May’s election than anything we’ve seen recently. Polls indicate there is a mobile bloc of “protest” voters who are upset at the B.C. Liberal government for a number of reasons, and are willing to consider a variety of alternatives when it comes to marking their ballot. The NDP seems to have attracted the highest number of disaffected B.C. Liberal supporters, but public opinion can evolve fairly quickly during an election campaign and it can head in unforeseen directions. For example, during the 1991 election campaign the ruling Social Credit party

fell apart in a very public way and the B.C. Liberals came out of nowhere to the point of almost winning the election itself. Thousands of people deserted the Socreds but were unwilling to switch to the polar opposite NDP and settled on something else. If the B.C. Liberals don’t get their act together and win back a significant number of those people who have turned their backs on them, I suspect the B.C. Conservative Party and in particular the Green Party will be the prime beneficiaries. As well, there are four or five independent candidates who either stand a decent chance of winning or at the very least playing spoiler. The independents are: Vicki Huntington (Delta South), Bob Simpson (Cariboo North), John van Dongen (Abbotsford South), Arthur Hadland (Peace River North) and Moe Gill (Abbotsford West). It would appear that Huntington has the best chance of being elected, since she’s already proven she can be elected as an Independent. I would rank Hadland, who took almost a third of the vote in 2009, as standing

the next best chance of winning (he’s campaigning partly on his opposition to the Site C dam project, which will stand him well with voters in the Peace River region). I wouldn’t count van Dongen out either. He’ll be in a tight three- or fourway race where a relatively low vote count can prove victorious. The Green Party may prove to be the most interesting group to watch. It is perfectly positioned to attract voters who are fed up with the B.C. Liberals but are not willing to throw their support behind the NDP. The Greens are like a novelty act. There’s no harm in voting for them even if you don’t like their platform since they have no hope of forming government. A

vote for the Greens can be a protest vote of sorts. The Greens almost won a federal byelection recently in Victoria, which was supposed to be a cakewalk for the NDP. The party attracted support from the other three main federal parties. In fact, the capital region is fertile ground for the Greens and it is where the party will likely post its strongest showing. Two ridings in particular are ones to watch. In Saanich North, the Green candidate is Adam Olsen, a popular local councillor and small businessman. The word is he has ex-B.C. Liberal political staffers volunteering for him, while the B.C. Liberals can’t even find a candidate (it’s also worth noting this riding elected federal Green

Party leader Elizabeth May). In Oak Bay-Gordon Head, noted climate change scientist Andrew Weaver is the star Green Party candidate. In both ridings, a lot of votes would have to swing away from the B.C. Liberals and go to the Greens for either candidate to win, but it’s certainly possible. I’d be surprised if the B.C. Conservatives have the same potential attractiveness as the Greens. But in some pockets of the province the party will likely do better than it did in 2009, to the detriment of the B.C. Liberals. Add it up, and there’s a decent chance of anywhere from two to a half-dozen seats going to someone not running for the NDP or the B.C. Liberals.

NDP SMELLS BLOOD

It will be interesting to see if the B.C. Liberals can maintain internal caucus discipline in the upcoming legislative session. The party’s majority has narrowed to just four seats (plus the Speaker). Luckily for the government, there’s not expected to be a lot of votes since there won’t be a heavy legislative agenda. But there may be opportunities for the NDP, sensing there may be one too many B.C. Liberal MLAs away from the legislature, to spring the occasional trap and embarrass the government by winning votes on procedural motions.

Accepting autism brought peace to our family New interchange is a vast improvement

read autism treatment story with The Editor, Re: “Autism treatment: take a number,” the Now, Feb. 5. It is sad to see that 11 years after my son was officially diagnosed with autism, people are still struggling to have their children diagnosed and waiting for services. My son, who is almost 17, was diagnosed when he was six years old. He finally started to speak in sentences after his fourth year but the social skills were just not there. Now in high school, he has trouble socially – peers reject him because he is different. The kids that were his “friends” in elementary school pretended not to know him or bullied him as soon as they hit high school, which is sad. We had him in social groups and did everything that we were told to do to help him. We had to fight for every support with the Surrey school district in the early days and spent countless hours in meetings trying to get help at the school level with that $18,000 that the school system provides for autistic kids. What a fight. It turned us into bitter, anxiety ridden, crazed people. And the $6,000 to help him at home we had to navigate as best we could. In our experience, the behaviour interventionists were little more then special babysitters and we did not find them online – they were provided by agencies. Over the years, we have realized that no matter what we did, our son had autism and that was never going to change. Yes, he can talk and he is doing well in school and is on track to graduate, but everything else that comes with autism is still there and will never go away. No amount of stressing out and fighting will change that. The province needs to set up a better system for autism funding/help – like a centre where families go to in their communities. These centres should provide them with diagnosis, a behaviour plan

Christine Long spent two-and-a-half years waiting to get her non-verbal autistic son Finn intensive speech therapy. Their story appeared in the Feb. 5 issue of the ‘Now.’ If you missed it, you can read it by scanning this photo using Layar. (Photo: JACOB ZINN) as what should be done (speech therapy, behaviour therapy, etc.) and then go from there. Parents should not be left to figure out on their own and have to wait on ridiculously long waiting lists. We have accepted the fact that our son’s life will always be different from others his age. With this we have let go and let the cards fall where they may. All that is important to us now is that he is happy and safe. No amount of therapy made any difference in his life. Our days of stressing out are long over and because of this we are all at peace. C. Litonjua, Surrey

Residents needed more casino notice The Editor, Re: “Gateway wants to clarify history of casino saga,” the Now, Feb. 7. Many residents of South Surrey were not aware of this proposal – whatever press releases, surveys or impact assessments

that were done by Gateway, BCLC, Surrey city hall or the provincial government were obviously not open enough. To satisfy all concerned parties, awareness of impacts on the community from such projects as a casino should not be just a small notice in some local newspapers. For subdivisions and small road changes this form of information is acceptable. Something like this casino altering a quiet rural neighbourhood obviously should have had a mail-out to all the local residents. A mail-out was sent to less than 20 adjacent residents. Maybe 5,000 to local residents would have been more appropriate. The other part of this complex stated South Surrey needs a hotel and conference centre. Well, there is one at the other side of Highway 99 on King George Boulevard – The Pacific Inn. Maybe James Chen recalls at our local residents meeting, there were close to 500 hundred people inside one of the Pacific Inn’s conference rooms. Adequate and comfortable in its size to inform you and BCLC “you are not welcome in our community.” Martin Cooper, Surrey

The Editor, Re: “Another bridge flaw,” the Now, Feb. 5. Jatinder Sandhu is correct – HOV drivers must use 156th Street in order to be in the HOV lane and receive the HOV discount when they pass under the toll gantry. What I’d like to point out is these new dedicated HOV ramps are designed to complement the larger improvements of the 152nd Street Interchange. In fact, I expect many HOV drivers will prefer using the new 156th Street ramps over the traditional entrance and exit at 152nd Street. The 156th Street interchange is a brand new set of on- and off-ramps built to provide fast, efficient and convenient access to the Highway 1 HOV lane for HOV vehicles. 152nd Street has traditionally been one of the busiest interchanges on the Port Mann/Highway 1 corridor, and giving HOV vehicles their own, dedicated ramps at 156th Street makes Highway 1 access from Surrey more efficient. These new HOV ramps are less than a minute away from 152nd Street, and entering and exiting via 156th shouldn’t add any additional travel time for most drivers. Having HOV traffic use these new ramps will also take some pressure off the 152nd Street interchange, which has been one of the primary causes of the traffic bottleneck at the east end of the Port Mann Bridge. The new wider bridge, a new 152nd Street interchange and HOV access via 156th Street are all working together to clear what was once the worst traffic bottleneck in B.C. The new HOV and transit ramps at 156th Street are just one of the many HOV and transit investments included in the Port Mann/Highway 1 Improvement Project.

Fundraiser ‘is our baby’ at Ricky’s

Nina Aurora (pictured with her sons Rahul, 4, and Joshua, 7) is thankful to Variety for the help the charity has given her following the premature birth of her youngest son. Variety provides supplies for Rahul, including equipment to run a feeding tube inserted into his stomach. (Photo: KEVIN HILL)

47th annual Show of Hearts Telethon

Thankful for Variety’s help Volunteer with Carolyn Cooke

Now staff Twitter @carolyncooke1

When Rahul was born at Surrey Memorial Hospital in 2008, new mom Nina Aurora only saw her baby for a few seconds before he was rushed out of the room. Rahul was born five weeks early, and among the congenital problems he faced right off the bat was esophageal trachea, meaning his esophagus was attached to his windpipe instead of being a fully connected canal between his mouth and stomach. Soon Rahul had an operation at B.C. Children’s Hospital to correct the condition and had a feeding tube inserted into his stomach, which he still has and will for some time yet. Aurora, a mortgage broker in Surrey, said it was “stressful for the first few years. He was also born without a spleen.” That fact was mentioned in passing when they were preparing to check Rahul out of the hospital. Without a spleen the baby had no immunity or ability to fight off common bacteria. “For the first two years I kind of hibernated at home,” said Aurora. “I didn’t go out much, didn’t let my older son go to preschool or anything because I was afraid of what he’d bring home. I

had to be very careful for the first two years.” At two years, Rahul was able to get a vaccination to help protect him from the most common forms of bacteria. But to make matters worse, Aurora and her husband split up shortly after Rahul came home from the hospital. “Financially, I took such a bit hit that I started to panic because his supplies are so expensive,” she said. For example, Rahul’s feeding machine costs more than $2,000, each daily feeding bag is $10 and then there is the formula, she noted. If the Gtube comes out, they need to rush to the hospital to have it replaced, which costs about $300. “Those kind of costs for a single mom are hard,” she said. “They’re hard for a working family, never mind a single mom.” Aurora said her doctor helped her to apply for various kinds of assistance and programs, but “I just kept missing them by a hair.” Eventually, Variety - The Children’s Charity approved Aurora’s application. “I don’t even have words to explain what they did for me. I needed them and they came through for me, and I get overwhelmed even today when I think about it.” Variety covers supplies for Rahul and that has lifted one of Aurora’s main stressors, she said. Once she knew her baby’s special needs were met, she could pay the rent, groceries and other basic needs for her and her two children without fearing the worst.

I needed them and they came through for me, and I get overwhelmed even today when I think about it. One thing Aurora emphasized is that the people at Variety are a joy to deal with, and they never judge her for needing a helping hand. Asking for help is tough, she said, especially for someone who came from a well-off home. Just recently Aurora took a huge step in deciding to share her story at a Variety event. Public speaking was a bit scary, never mind sharing her family’s story, but she did it because she wanted others to know how much the charity means to her family. “It would really help if other moms come out because it helps other people understand what (Variety) does do for people like me, and it shows that the work really does help.” She may have a chance to share her story again at the 47th annual Show of Hearts Telethon on Feb. 16 and 17. It is the signature fundraising event for Variety. Last year’s telethon brought in nearly $7 million. The Global BC broadcast will feature a mix of concerts and interviews with Chantal Kreviazuk, Adele, VH1 Divas, Rihanna, Paul McCartney, Justin Beiber, Elton John and Michael Bublé.

Ricky’s restaurant in Central City is holding its annual fundraiser for Variety’s upcoming Show of Hearts Telethon. The fundraiser, held during restaurant hours on Feb. 16 and 17, features raffles with great prizes like signed sports jerseys, a laptop and other items donated by the owner, and his friends and family. Avtar Bains, who owns the Central City eatery, said that for every order made during those two days, they donate $5, no matter how much or little the cost. “A lot of our staff will also donate their hours for the weekend as well,” he said, and that money goes into the donation to Variety. “Of all our achievements – and we’ve had record sales every year – this is our baby,” said Bains. Even some staff who no longer work at Ricky’s come by to lend a hand on the Variety weekend. Bains explained that his drive to help others started at a young age when his grandparents took him and his siblings to a downtown drop-in centre to hand out homemade Indian meals or hundreds of hotdogs to needy people. Over the past seven years of annual fundraisers for Variety, Bains and the staff at Ricky’s, which is managed by his son, have netted more than $55,000 for Variety. On the morning of Sunday, Feb. 17, they will make the official presentation of more than $11,000 from last year’s event that will be shown live on the Show of Hearts. And, of course, you will be able to watch the broadcast at Ricky’s in Central City. Bains is encouraging everyone to stop by at any time during the telethon weekend and “have even toast just to make us donate $5 on your behalf.” Their goal is to beat last year’s total and every little bit helps.

As a team, they wanted to do something to help raise awareness and fight lung disease. “I’ve heard it’s not easy to do,” MacDonald said of the 739-step Climb at Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre Hotel. “But we really don’t care if it takes us 10 minutes or two hours, we’ll do it – even if we have to crawl up those stairs.” MacDonald, a Newton resident, said she’s getting in shape for the challenge.

Jennifer MacDonald is preparing herself for 48 floors of sweat, tears and smiles when she does this year’s Climb the Wall event in Vancouver on March 3. She’s a first-time Climber attempting the charity fundraiser in honour of her late mother, who would have turned 63 today (Feb. 12). The annual event, in its 12th year, benefits BC Lung Association research, education and advocacy programs. MacDonald and her two “Stair Hogs” teammates – Judy and Dominique Parker – are closing in on their current goal to raise $1,500 for the cause. MacDonald’s mother Annie-Jean, or A.J., succumbed to lung cancer in 2010. Her pal Judy’s mom, Agnes Felder, was also diagnosed with lung cancer at around the same time.

“I’m walking more, and that includes doing the stairs in our townhouse. I’m going up and down the stairs for 15 or 30 minutes at a time, whenever I can find the time.” To participate, Climbers must each pay $25 to register and commit to raising at least $125. In return, they’re given a T-shirt, post-event brunch and a chance to win a trip for two to Bermuda. Last year’s event raised $190,000. The fastest Climb time was four minutes, 25 seconds; most got it done in 10 or 15 minutes. “Some participants climb for themselves, others to honour a friend or family member affected by lung disease,” stated Kate Jarvis, organizer of Climb the Wall. “And while each participant’s motivation is different, their reward is the same: making a difference in the lives of the one in five British Columbians affected by lung disease.” To get involved in the event, or to make a donation, visit www. stairclimb.ca or call 604731-LUNG (5864).

COMMUNITY Guildford Park Secondary

Student’s design helps anti-bullying movement Christopher Poon

Now staff Twitter @questionchris

Grade 12 student Bea Venzon created the official T-shirt design for Anti-Bully Day events on Feb. 27. the anti-bullying movement, Venzon said the issue was one that struck her as being something that could be changed, with a little effort. “It’s just that bullying is one small thing that could have lifelong repercussions for people so preventing it would have such an impact on someone’s life,” she said. “Nobody deserves to get bullied for their race, sexual orientation, financial status, disability, gender, religion, perceived subculture or for anything at all.” Following her final year in high school, Venzon hopes to pursue sciences at postsecondary, but said she’s still interested in continuing to be active in social advocacy. “I’m going into the sciences but things like art and film are a hobby to me and people in the group and that’s how we choose to present our ideas,” she said. “I’m still looking forward to doing more of that.”

“You can’t shake hands with a closed fist.” It was a quote uttered by former Indian Prime Minister Indira Ghandi during peace talks in the 1970s and was one of the first things that popped into the head of Guildford Park Secondary student Bea Venzon when it came time to create a design for anti-bullying. With that in mind, the Grade 12 student created an image of two hands forming a heart shape. This past week, that image was selected out of 400 to be the official T-shirt design for this year’s Anti-Bullying day in Surrey on Feb. 27, and that design will go on to be worn by more than 10,000 people. For the 17-year-old Venzon, the selection was unexpected, to say the least. “I was quite surprised because it was very last-minute (and) I only started working on it the night before the deadline,” she said, laughing. “I found it quite interesting because fists are a symbol for traditional schoolyard bullying, and the fact that you can use the same appendage for spreading peace, acceptance and friendship.” However, taking part in socially-driven activities isn’t anything new for the Surrey youth, as Venzon was part of a group of students that won first place in the City of Surrey’s anti-bullying film contest last spring. “My friends and I, we’re all part of the GayStraight Alliance in my school and we’ve been doing these kinds of activities since 2009,” she said.

Artistry in Flowers “Your Special Touch Florist” Making Every Occasion Beautiful!

The British Allergy Foundation suggests that 45-60% of the North American population could be susceptible to a hypersensitivity or intolerance to certain foods (type III food allergies). Most people suffering from food sensitivities (intolerances) may be unaware of their condition and tend to ignore and even aggravate the situation since the intolerances are often associated with foods they like and consume often. Food impacts every cell in our body; as the saying goes, “you are what you eat”. Food allergies and food intolerances are sometimes confused with each other, but they are quite different in terms of their origin, symptoms and treatment.

FOR DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT CALL DR. Z. STRAUTS M.D. 604.541.1053

Regularly, as a Naturopathic Doctor, I see and treat many patients with food sensitivities. How do you know if you have food sensitivities? There are many ways to test for this. The two most accurate methods that I use to test my patients are the “elimination diet”, and “serum IgG testing”. Once food sensitivities have been identified, I have my patients eliminate or avoid these foods for a period of time that is determined according to one’s severity of reactions. I then work with the patient to reduce the reactivity to foods so they can reintroduce most foods back to their diet and remain symptom free. The serum IgG test involves testing your blood. Our blood can be tested for hundreds of different foods, inhalants such as dust and pollen, and chemicals. Delayed-onset food sensitivities are commonly reversible and I have seen much success with my patients.

Food allergy vs. food sensitivity

PART OF A TRUSTED TRADITION FOR YOUR PEACE OF MIND

Food allergies (Type I) occur in approximately only 2-5% of the population. Type I (immediate onset) is a rather fast response (in minutes) by the body’s immune system to a perceived invader. Signs and symptoms are typically immediate, dramatic and visible: coughing, sneezing, vomiting, watering eyes, rashes, swelling tissue, hives or in severe cases anaphylactic shock leading to respiratory failure and death. Food sensitivities (Type III, delayed-onset) are more common and results in a slow onset reaction, taking hours, or even days and also involves the immune system. It is much less likely to be life-threatening and symptoms are generally less severe than food allergy. Since delayed-onset food sensitivities are so often undetected and untreated, they lie behind many chronic medical conditions of unknown cause.

TEL

Symptoms of food intolerance

EMAIL

Often people with food intolerances become deficient in iron, calcium, folic acid, and vitamin D. Long term exposure to food sensitivities result in chronic stress on the immune system and low grade inflammation in the digestive tract. People with food intolerance are more susceptible to catch viruses, may have dry skin, hair and nail problem and tire more easily. Common symptoms include: fatigue, gastro-intestinal problem (bloating, IBS, IBD, constipation, flatulence, diarrhea) and subsequent mal-absorption problem such as anemia and osteoporosis, unexplained weight gain, inability to lose weight, chronic skin irritations including acne and eczema, headaches and migraines, respiratory system distress (chronic sinusitis, asthma, chronic congestion).

Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet will be taking a day off work Thursday to sing for sweethearts across Metro Vancouver. It’s a Valentine’s Day ritual of his, as a member of The Gentlemen of Fortune choir. On Feb. 14 each year, members of the group split into barbershop quartets and sing love songs for a fee, with part proceeds going to Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society and local youth singing programs. For as little as $50, it’s a one-of-a-kind gift delivered in four-part harmony, with a rose and chocolates thrown in. “People are usually very surprised when we show up, and thrilled,” said Paquet, who

It’s something a little different.” Paquet, a baritone, has been singing barbershop since 2004 – three years with The Gentlemen of Fortune and six with Chilliwack Harmony Chorus. “It’s phenomenal,” he said of the music. “I’ve always found it intriguing that four voices can produce that sound without background music.” On Valentine’s Day, the roving quartets aim to keep the love songs more modern, he added.

New director brings energy to the Vaudevillians See photos with

Now staff Twitter @tomzillich

On a grey Monday afternoon, the lyrics of the bright number “Red, Red Robin” fill a hall in North Delta – over and over again, with some stumbling over a line or two. On stage, five women – Dorothy Perkins, Bernadette Ray, Alannah Jacques, Doris Carruthers and Penny DeSanto – are coached along by Marilyn Remus, the new artistic director of the Vaudevillians seniors’ entertainment troupe. “I throw quite a bit at them sometimes,” Remus said later, “and for some of them it’s hard to sing the words and do the motions at the same time. But they’re getting it. These are seniors, bless their hearts.” Remus has clearly given new energy to the troupe, which will celebrate its 10th anniversary with a big show in November. At the moment, Remus is honing some of the song, dance and comedy numbers the Vaudevillians will perform at a variety of

Marilyn Remus (foreground), new artistic director with The Vaudevillians, relaxes for a moment while the seniors’ entertainment troupe rehearses a number on a recent Monday afternoon at Kennedy Seniors’ Recreation Centre in North Delta. (Photo: TOM ZILLICH) places this spring and summer. “We’re drinking Geritol,” Remus said with a laugh. “They have a lot of energy, I gotta give it to them, but it’s about putting that energy into the number, to best reflect it.”

Remus recently moved back to B.C. from Florida. In the U.S., she toured the country for two decades as director and choreographer with the Rogers company. Last spring, she saw a newspaper story about the troupe and

decided to get involved behind the scenes. Pat Trimble, who dances and sings with the Vaudevillians, said Remus has definitely brought great energy to the group. “Marilyn can really connect with the people here, and she knows how to tell you that you’ve done something wrong without making you feel bad about it – you get the message in a good way,” Trimble said. “She’s very, very good at what she does.… It’s just so invigorating working with her.” Likewise, Remus is enjoying the experience of directing the two-dozen Vaudevillians. “It’s been a difficult time for them, having lost a director and some challenges that way, so they need that solid support, and I hope I give that to them,” said Remus, who lives in New Westminster. “You know, they’re so good to me; I don’t have a car and they’ll come pick me up (for rehearsals at Kennedy seniors’ rec centre) and bring me home again.” From January to June, seniors are welcome to audition for the busy troupe. “We invite them to come here and see what we do, on any Monday from 1 to 4 p.m.,” Trimble said. “Every year, we lose a few people and gain a few. That’s just the reality of it.” For details about the troupe, call 604-5419591 or visit www.thevaudevillians.com.

COMMUNITY Eating contest

‘Spice Off’ stalemate See video with A much-anticipated “Spice Off ” eating competition between two Now reporters resulted in a draw Thursday afternoon. Held at the infamous Chili Pepper House at 96th Avenue and 128th Street in Surrey, the competition pitted young reporters Christopher Poon and Jacob Zinn against one another in a competition to eat the most spicy food without conceding defeat. With both having finished all of their

meals, the competition continued back at the Now office, where shots of hot sauce were consumed to determine a winner. After two shots a piece, it was decided that, for the time being, the contest would be a draw. The battle is set to continue in the coming week. To suggest further spicy challenges for the reporters to partake in, tweet your idea to @thenownewspaper with the hashtag #spiceoff. (No ghost peppers.)

Memory is more complex than most people realize, and while some changes do happen with time, losing one’s memory is not a normal part of aging. That was the take-home message from a presentation called “Memory and Aging” at George Mackie Library last week. The talk, given by Annette O’Connor on behalf of the Council of Senior Citizens’ Organizations of British Columbia (COSCO), covered how memory works, different types of memory, how it changes (or not) as we age, causes of memory-related problems, tips for improving your memory and when to seek professional help. O’Connor, a retired math teacher from

Langley, began by noting that memory is basically “one’s ability to remember information and experiences.” “Memory loss is a great concern for seniors.” However, once people are in their 20s, they begin to lose some of their memory function. While age does affect people’s memory to a degree, memory loss is different than memory decline. Memory loss is forgetting the name of your spouse or child, not being able to find your way home or habitual problems like regularly forgetting to take your medications or leaving the stove on. Those are signs of serious diseases, like dementia and Alzheimer’s, O’Connor said, and they require medical attention. “The problem is we don’t recognize it in ourselves,” she said. “We need to rely on family or friends to help us.” see › page 25

FOREVER YOUNG Memory and aging

‘Brown bag’ it for your next doctor’s visit ‹ from page 24

There are different kinds of memory, such as episodic versus working memory (remembering where you were on 9/11 versus remembering your shopping list), and some are quite stable throughout one’s lifetime. There are plenty of things that can interfere with memory though, and most can be addressed in one way or another. For example, some medications cause memory problems as a side effect, as do poor diet, being dehydrated, prolonged stress or anxiety, sudden illness like the flu, and even a poor night of sleep. One thing O’Connor suggested seniors do is “brown bag” it at your next doctor’s appointment. This is when you bring along a bag with the bottles of everything you take, even the over-the-counter drugs and supplements, and have your doctor review them with you. People can also have a medicine review with their pharmacist, she said. To do this, make an appointment, at which you will go over every single thing you take, including

over-the-counter drugs, vitamins and supplements and prescriptions. The pharmacist will know if there are any that cause memory problems as a side effect, as well as if there are any that have problematic interactions. O’Connor also had suggestions to help people improve or maintain their memory, including getting some physical exercise, being social, eating a balanced healthy diet and keeping your mind active. That would involve learning new things, reading, doing crosswords or other puzzles and trivia games. One really big help, and not just for seniors, is to learn to manage stress. Strategies here also include exercise as well as setting boundaries and learning to say “no.” Just because you are retired doesn’t mean you had all day to do other people’s bidding, she said. “Memory and Aging” is one of 36 free workshops offered by COSCO, online at coscobc.ca.

Allen t Darren, thank you for doing such a wonderful job, beyond my wildest hopes for natural looking and wellfitting dentures. Lena t Tricia, I love my dentures. You are a perfectionist. You make one feel at ease. The atmosphere in your office (whole office) is very warm and welcoming. Lots of smiling faces, makes you really feel at ease.

It is the first time I have had such truly free comfort in eating and talking. They are perfect and thanks to you for your kindness and your caring ways. Thanks again. Regards, Mary H.

t Dear Brookswood, how could I ever forget. Every time I see my lovely smile, I am reminded of your great work! In fact, we were on a cruise this part spring, and one dear gentleman told me I had “the nicest smile on the boat.” I couldn’t help but agree. You do great smiles! With thanks, Francis B. t I would like to take this moment to say thank you so much for the new look you have given me. I feel so much better about myself and to think I do look ten years younger! I am so glad I found your ad and came to you for help. I am still in awe with what all took place. Never have I had that kind of attention to detail in dentures. Thank you again, take care, Bonnie t I just wanted to send you a note of thanks for all your thoughtfulness and caring in the past ten months. It was just awful to lose all of my teeth, but because of all of you, you have made it a lot easier to deal with everything. I love my new teeth. Darren, you did a great job. Thanks again to a great group of caring people. Wendy M. t Thank you so very, very much for going above and beyond… and for listening. I truly appreciate it. Fondly, Leslie

High school wrestling

Slamfest 10 will be no slam dunk for Sabres Michael Booth

Now staff Twitter @boothnow

The calendar says it’s a day for romance, but there will be no love shown on the mats this Valentine’s Day as Surrey high school wrestlers compete for city bragging rights. Sponsored by the Surrey Firefighters, Surrey Slamfest 10 goes Thursday afternoon at Guildford Park Secondary and this time the outcome is in doubt before the first shoulder is pinned to the mats. The Guildford Park Sabres have won every one of the previous editions of the competition, thanks to coaches Mark McCrae and Bryan Stretch, two former Sabres who have revived the school’s dominance in the sport. “It’s a pride thing for us,” said McCrae, who competed in Guildford Park green in the 1980s. “When Bryan and I were at Guildford Park way back when we were wrestling we had won it (Surrey championship) 15 years in a row. Essentially it’s the same tournament only now it’s sponsored by the firefighters. It was a pride thing back then and the tournament was usually very competitive. It’s kind of gotten that way again and we do take pride in it because the Surrey wrestling community is pretty strong and the quality is really high. Some of the teams don’t have the depth that we have and that’s usually what wins out in events like this.” McRae said while the Sabres have some outstanding talent in the lower grades, he is

The Surrey Firefighters’ Slamfest 10 high school wrestling tourney will take place on Thursday afternoon. Former Guildford Park Sabres wrestlers Arminder Virk (left) and Josh Beattie are part of the legacy of the event as both men were recently hired as firefighters in Surrey. The duo will be on hand for the competition as coaches with their old school. (Photo: KEVIN HILL) casting a wary eye toward Cloverdale where Lord Tweedsmuir’s Panthers are poised to pounce. The Panthers are led by Grade 12 Jaskarn Ranu, the defending provincial champion at 76-kilograms and one of the top grapplers in the province in any weight class. Lord Tweedsmuir’s Arshvir Atwal (69-kgs) and Tyler Dilman (66-kgs) are also expected to do well at the B.C. tourney. “I think this year will be the first year in a long time where Slamfest is going to be really

close,” McRae said. “Lord Tweedsmuir is very good and I would say they’re probably the favourites going into it. They’re probably stronger than us and their high-end guys are very high end.” That’s not to say the cupboard is bare at Guildford Park. Will Thamavong (57-kgs) has made remarkable progress in just two years of training and is a threat to medal at the provincials. Grade 9 wrestler Gagan Hundal (51-kgs) and Grade 10 Diego Esparza (48-kgs) are also improving rapidly, as are

female wrestlers Adriana Miteva (54-kgs) and Zion Lee (57-kgs). The Surrey Firefighters have sponsored the revival of the local high school wrestling scene and the impact of their contributions is beginning to show not only on the mats, but in Surrey fire halls as well. Two former Guildford Park wrestlers — Arminder Virk and Josh Beattie — were recently hired as firefighters by the City of Surrey and both volunteer as coaches with their old school in their spare time.

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!
