City faces ‘tough decisions’ to fund more cops on street As Watts prepares to make appeal in Ottawa, Rasode says city needs to find creative solutions

in Guildford late Tuesday night. Police say the victim and shooter got out of the same Chevy pickup truck and headed into the store, at 100th Avenue and 152nd Street, at about 11:30 p.m. Once inside, the one shot the other. At press time the victim was in stable condition in Royal Columbian Hospital. Rasode said the city needs to create a long-term strategy to bring the police officer count back up. She proposes that the city’s secondary suite fee be used to fund more police officers. “There are some creative solutions that we are going to have to come up with.”

NEWTON — Bike patrols, increased community policing and the clustering of social services in the area were top of mind at a safety meeting held Monday night at the Newton Seniors Centre. The meeting, hosted by the recently formed Newton Doug Elford Community Association, came a week after 53-year-old hockey mom Julie Paskall died after being brutally beaten outside the local arena. The venue was filled to its 125-person capacity by 6:30 p.m., and roughly 300 more people arrived but were turned away. Politicians were not allowed. “It was very civil, very peaceful, we had good dialogue and that just goes to show you the character of the people in our neighbourhood,” said Newton Community Association member Doug Elford. “I was impressed with the residents of Newton because they came up with some good solutions – we did hear some good answers and I’m really proud of our community.”

SURREY — The City of Surrey has fallen behind targets laid out in its own Crime Reduction Strategy, which calls for one police officer to every 700 residents or better. Surrey currently has 673 police officers. The 2014 budget calls for 12 more, which would increase the number to 685. With a projected population of roughly 512,000 in 2014, that means one officer for every 747 people. The city would need to add 46 more officers this year to hit its own target. The community is calling for more police after the murder of Julie Paskall on Dec. 29. Coun. Barinder Rasode, chair of Surrey’s police and community safety committees, said the city undoubtedly needs more RCMP. The problem in hitting that target comes down to growth and dollars, she said. “We do have a challenge in the city. We

have a thousand people a month coming to our community... “We welcome growth. Growth creates vibrant communities. Good planning can absorb that growth, but I think that what happens is that sometimes we have to be able to manage all of the priorities we have within the budgets that we have. So certainly we get eight cents of the tax dollar, so within that, we need to make some tough decisions.” Rasode’s comments came hours after a man was shot in the back at a Mac’s store

Linda, a patient at LaserHealth® Solutions, had been severely injured in a car accident. She initially resisted going for treatment but eventually gave in to her husband’s prodding. It didn’t take long for her to realize that this was the place that could help her. Because it worked for her cervical pain, Linda went back to the clinic when she experienced other conditions.

saying... community policing at the level that they had in Delta.”

TOO MANY PEOPLE

SEE FULL VERSIOn OF StORY WIth Many say the neighbourhood has been neglected for years and the area is now plagued by drug dealing, prostitution, petty theft and other crimes. Elford said this tragedy has rocked the community, but also brought it together to fight for action. “It looks like it’s bonded us and we’re going to be moving ahead and galvanize and try and get a strong voice to council and get some changes,” Elford said. Changes will come, he said – the residents will make sure of that. “We’re not going to sit back. We’re not going to take it anymore. This is enough. You’ve got to do something. We’re not going to put our heads in the sand anymore.”

MORE POLICE ON STREETS

Surrey city staff, RCMP and Surrey Crime Prevention Society were also at the meeting to speak, listen to suggestions and answer questions. The meeting began with a moment of silence for Paskall, followed by words from Surrey’s top cop Bill Fordy and Karen Reid Sidhu with Surrey Crime Prevention, followed by a suggestion and question period. Many called for more police on the streets. One woman said Surrey has one police officer for every 731 people, where Vancouver has one for every 504. “Less cops, less eyes out there, less people who can enforce the law,” she said. “Less Christmas lights, more cops... if I had a choice between a cop in Newton or some more planters in downtown Newton, dump the planters, let’s go with the cops.” Many said they wanted to see police out of their cars. Bike patrols came up numerous times. One man received applause when he asked, “If we buy you

The newly formed Newton Community Association hosts a safety meeting Monday night at the Newton Seniors Centre. The venue was quickly filled to its 125-person capacity and roughly 300 more people were turned away. (Photo: AMY REID) bikes, would you use them?” There were also questions about why the Newton community policing station closes at night. One woman suggested community centres having walk-safe programs where people could be escorted to their vehicles or to transit. Many brought up the clustering of social services in Newton. One woman estimated the area is home to more than 50 such services. One man urged the RCMP to advertise their non-emergency line, which is 604-599-0502. Police have received a significant number of tips from the public in Paskall’s attack, Fordy said, but couldn’t say much more on the status of the investigation because the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has the case.

COMPARED TO COLEBOOK ROAD

Bob Campbell, member of the West Panorama Ridge Ratepayers Association, spoke at the meeting, and said his neighbourhood saw a lot of the same crime that Newton is dealing with. “We have lots of low-level crime and we had trouble getting any attention to it. It

wasn’t until we started having bodies appear that we really got any attention,” he said before the meeting. His neighbourhood is home to Colebrook Road, nicknamed “Killbrook Road” due to several bodies being dumped along the rural route. A body was also found in the neighbourhood’s Joe Brown Park. Campbell said his area saw a huge problem with transition houses. “Our problems are almost identical (to Newton),” he said. “There’s so many parallels.” Campbell said there’s always a move for quick fixes. “We’ll put up lights, we’ll cut the trees, that kind of stuff,” he said. “We’ve always thought there’s more underlying problems to it.” Campbell said his community has found these three things can make a difference: increased community policing, cracking down on gangs as well as dealing with transition and recovery homes. “Delta has an expression, ‘No call too small.’ We joke that in Surrey it’s ‘No call at all,’ because it’s a totally different thing. I know it’s resources and priorities, but I’m

Lifelong Newton resident Judy Fleming attended Monday’s meeting, and brought along her 16-year-old granddaughter Alexus Wager-Parkes. Fleming said she’s never wanted to leave Surrey, but this attack has made her question living in the city. “We’re so overpopulated in Surrey now. The crime, every day you wake up and there’s more crime in Surrey. It’s frightening.” While many seemed pleased with the forum’s discussion, some wanted more. Bill Forbes left the meeting 30 minutes in because he was upset with the format. “I came here to support the family of the lady that was killed. It’s so sad. But I also came here to see if there was some kind of action going to happen and maybe build on that. Maybe it’s going to happen, I don’t know.” Paskall babysat 21-year-old Shilo Wishart when she was a child. Wishart attended the meeting, pleading for the attacker to come forward. Wishart described Paskall as a caring person, who always had a good sense of humour. “I want the person who killed this woman to show their face and to have a heart, have a little pride. She was a woman, a friend and a loving person. No one deserves this,” she said before the meeting. “I don’t care who you are, you need to stand up and be a man.”

WHAT’S NEXT

The Newton Community Association will now gather all the information collected at Monday’s meeting to put together suggestions for their next meeting, set for Feb. 15 at the Newton Community Centre. The group hopes to find a larger space to accommodate all of those wishing to attend. Politicians will be invited to that meeting. A collection for the Paskall family has been started. Donations to the “Paskall Family Trust” can be made at any Vancity credit union branch.

Watts heading to Ottawa to ask RMCP boss for help ‹ from page 1

Surrey has the lowest residential taxes in the Lower Mainland (see column on page 8), and Rasode doesn’t think council should raise taxes to solve the problem. “I just think that we need to come up with ways to tighten our belt a bit and other creative solutions.” But the city may need to re-evaluate the target of one officer for every 700 people, she said, based on new technologies and new ways of policing. Rasode said the community safety

committee is set to look at an app for smartphones to report non-violent crimes, similar to that of the Victoria Police Department. She also said city issues, such as illegal dumping or graffiti, shouldn’t be taking up police resources. But it comes down to ease of reporting, again, she said. The committee will also be discussing a centralized number at city hall for reporting bylaw infractions. Rasode also noted as city council is doing its work, they need to engage both the provincial and federal governments. “The federal government had made a

commitment some time ago to provide more RCMP officers to communities in Canada. I think that’s a conversation that does need to take place at that level. And it’s an important one,” Rasode said. “More and more we are being compelled to provide support to our communities that the federal and provincial government are no longer providing. “So in terms of taking a holistic approach with the challenge of crime, we’ve been investing money in other areas that really, funding traditionally, does come from other levels of government.”

Meanwhile, Mayor Dianne Watts is planning to meet with the RCMP commissioner in Ottawa this February to discuss the amount of police resources being taken off the street to deal with mental health and medical issues. Watts also said she spoke with the solicitor general about Surrey’s issues around policing, mental health, as well as prolific and repeat offenders. Surrey’s refugee population also needs support and resources, Watts added. areid@thenownewspaper.com With files from Tom Zytaruk

Surrey’s Sarbjit Bains arrested in three murders

Police won’t reveal motive but say cameras were ‘crucial’ in arrest Tom Zytaruk

Now staff Twitter @tomzytaruk

SURREY — Police are not revealing why they think a Surrey man murdered a Delta man last winter and then two women in New Westminster nearly six months later. Sarbjit Bains, 32, of Surrey is accused of murdering Delta’s Amritpal Saran, 29, in February and then New Westminster’s Karen Nabors and Jill Lyons in August. His alleged accomplice in the Saran case, Surrey woman Evelina Urbaniak, 36, is accused of being an accessory after the fact. Saran’s charred body was found in the 12100-block of Colebrook Road in rural Surrey on Feb. 24, 2013. Police have not released the cause of his death. Then, on Aug. 12, Lyons’ body was found in her apartment in New Westminster. Less than two weeks later, on Aug. 25, Nabors’ body was found inside her apartment, in the same complex where Lyons lived.

Simrit Saran talks to media in Surrey on Monday about her murdered brother Amritpal Saran while her mother Jatinder holds a picture of Amritpal. (Photo: JACOB ZINN) Supt. Kevin Hackett, in charge of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Unit, would not reveal a motive for the killings, noting the case is now before the courts. Hackett did say, however, that video surveillance and security cameras played a “crucial, key role in securing evidence” against the accused. Bains has been charged with two counts

of first-degree murder in the cases of Lyons and Nabors, and second-degree murder and committing an indignity to human remains in Saran’s case. Urbaniak is charged with committing an indignity to human remains and accessory after the fact, in the Saran case. Saran’s younger sister, Simrit Saran, said Amritpal was “an amazing son and a

wonderful older brother. “He was a wonderful kind man,” she said. “The type of person you could call at any time of the day, and he’d be there for you. “Amrit was full of life and energy. “God did not give us the power to take someone’s life away,” Simrit said, as her grieving mother Jatinder Saran embraced a large framed photo of her boy. “To the cowards that did this to our Amrit, you must have thought you got away, but this is just the beginning,” Simrit said. “Your suffering starts now.” Chief Supt. Bill Fordy, in charge of the Surrey RCMP, and New Westminster’s police chief, Dave Jones, shared their condolences. “As a parent, I can only guess at the pain they’ve endured,” Jones said. Lyons’ mom, Sheri Hickman, said her daughter was “adorable” and sweet. “We have a hole in our hearts,” she said. Nabor’s dad, Herb Auerbach, said he hopes to learn about the motive for his daughter’s murder in the months to come. “We always believe events like these happen to others,” he said. “She was a wonderful and vital human being.”

We’re being very cautious and conscientious what’s happening for our residents and businesses.” “Other municipalities, of course, are looking at the same question.” Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts noted said her city is also reviewing the matter. “We’ve put some bylaws in place in terms of regulation and criteria,” she said, adding that processes will be put into place to “make sure it’s not a public safety issue.” Surrey is not looking at prohibiting all aspects of the medical marijuana business like Delta is, though. “We can’t ban Health Canada from issuing a licence,” Watts said.

DELTA — Delta is moving to prohibit growing, storage and sale of medical marijuana within its boundaries. Council has directed municipal staff to draft amendments to the Delta Zoning Bylaw to prohibit “all aspects” of that industry in Delta, including manufacturing and testing. Any business wishing to establish such operations in Delta will have to apply for site-specific zoning subject to council’s approval. Delta already prohibits the production of medical marijuana in residential areas, Mayor Lois Jackson noted. This move, she added, is concerned with farmland. “It’s inappropriate to have medical marijuana grown on agricultural lands,” Jackson said. She said the land should be reserved for growing

Adversity is exhausting our city FromThe Editor’sDesk Beau Simpson

FOLLOW BEAU On tWIttER

I

t’s one thing when you hear readers, politicians and pundits express frustration with the state of our city. But when it comes from the mouth of a seven-year-old, it’s really something else. My son Noah spent two weeks over the Christmas holidays with his mom on Vancouver Island. I picked him up at the ferry terminal and it wasn’t long after we got into the Jeep that he was asking about what he had seen on the news coming from his hometown of Surrey. “Dad, did you hear something about a hockey mom being killed in Surrey?” he asked. “Yes, I did. We’ve been covering it at work. It’s very sad, isnt’ it?”I replied. “Yeah,” Noah said before pausing for a moment.

“I’m sure glad we live in Cloverdale.” Perplexed, I looked back at Noah in the rearview mirror. “What do you mean? Cloverdale is a part of Surrey, so we actually do live in Surrey,” I said. “I know, dad,” he said. “But Surrey is dangerous so I like saying I live in Cloverdale, not Surrey.” I heard this exact sentiment countless times before – in fact, hearing something like this spurred one of my first columns at the Now about five years ago – but I had never heard it from a child, until now. I did my best to use it as a teachable moment and talked to Noah about Surrey and crime in general and how bad things can happen anywhere, not just Surrey, but it really got me thinking about how deep our city’s problems truly go. And since that conversation took place, things continue to go from bad to worse in Surrey. More bodies found. More shootings. More sex assaults. More carjackings. The time for kneejerk reactions, task forces, committees, political infighting and passing the buck is over.

Let’s admit to our real problems. We have grown – and are growing – way too quickly. We can’t manage this growth because we don’t pay enough taxes to pay for things like a police force large enough to serve a city as big as Surrey. Other cities need higher tax rates just to make ends meet yet Surrey insists on clinging onto the tag of having the lowest residential taxes in the region. Along with our police force, the city’s schools and services can’t keep up with the growth. (For that matter, neither can our roads – it shouldn’t take 45 minutes to get from Newton to Cloverdale but it often does.) At some point, we need to stop patting ourselves on the back for attracting 1,000 new people here a month and start realizing that

therein lies our problem. We can’t even manage the population we have now, so why are we actively encouraging more people to come here? Let’s get our affairs in order before seeking any more growth. We need to move up our tax rate so Surrey can deal with this ridiculous population growth that is constantly adding strain to an infrastructure already stretched to the limits. And in our city core, Surrey’s strategy of developat-all-costs seems to be failing. In this very space four years ago, we made this argument and I’ll make it again here today – fixing a community takes more than just building a bunch of new fancy buildings. As the Now’s Michael Booth wrote in this space in April, Surrey officials are way too sensitive about cleaning up their perceived

notion of how the rest of the Lower Mainland views us. He wrote, “Bigger, better, first, best, highest this, lowest that – those stats are all well and good, but are they always entirely pragmatic when dealing with the issues that face a city that has been the fastest-growing community in the province for the better part of three decades?” And as Amy Reid reported in the Now’s Neighbourhoods series in December, Surrey’s strategy of revitalizing our city core is squeezing out services like the food bank and pushing the community’s challenges into neighbouring areas – like Newton. And speaking of Newton, residents there may be showing us the key to leading Surrey out of the mire and into the future. For me, the most telling part of the community

meeting on Monday night was the fact that politicians weren’t invited. After years of talk and empty promises, Newton’s hearty residents are poised to take back their community themselves. As Newton residents are showing us now, this is a great city and its residents show a lot of mettle when faced with adversity. But we’re tired of adversity. It has become clear we need a new direction, one that focuses on sustainability, not growth. The good news? This is an election year – a new direction may be just on the horizon. And Noah may soon be proud to tell his friends on Vancouver Island that he lives in Surrey.

Rotten tomatoes to the person who wrote in complaining that the woman who lost her purse did not give her daughter $300 when she returned it. This person goes on to say that her family believes in honour and respect. It seems to me that she should look up the meaning of these words as they seem to expect someone to give them $300 to return something that is legally theirs. Respect and honour to me means that I would return the person’s purse and not expect anything in return. Armloads of roses to the two young men who pushed my stalled vehicle out of heavy traffic on Nordel Way on Jan. 4. Dozens of cars had driven past me without offers to help before these chivalrous young men came along. They reluctantly accepted a $20 gratuity from me and returned five minutes later with a steaming jumbo cup of coffee to keep me warm while I waited for the tow truck. Their kindness and thoughtfulness turned an unpleasant situation into a heartwarming experience. Thank you! A huge bouquet of roses to everyone who helped my 96-year-old friend after her fall at Semiahmoo Shopping Centre. She and her family are forever grateful to the young woman who supported her on the cold pavement while sitting in a kneeling position for over 30 minutes. While my friend is down, she is definitely not out. May the roses bloom forever. Thanks for the kindness displayed by everyone at the Semiahmoo mall that day. Many, many roses to the woman at my doctor’s office for helping an obviously struggling couple to get some much needed medications for their very young son who had the flu so bad he was hoarse on New Year’s Day. You’re a saint!

Rotten tomatoes to Surrey’s mayor and council. Never mind visiting Israel and Colombia – try spending some time in Newton, Guildford and other areas of Surrey that require attention due to drug addiction and homelessness. Start by using foot patrols in major crime areas. Surrey seems to be going back to the good ol’ days. A hospital full of red roses and thanks to a family who, 25 years ago, consented to donating their loved ones organs for transplantation. I was lucky enough to receive one. Rotten tomatoes to “Bob” (not giving a certain name), just remember you’re not always right! This is very difficult. I would like to say a “world full of rotten tomatoes” but it would accomplish nothing. There are no words to express things adequately. Life is about choices and decisions and many of them are hard. It takes more courage to admit we are wrong and to accept the consequences for our decisions.To the child/children involved, you must remember and follow through with what your mother has taught you no matter how challenging this may be. Negativity is exhausting and harms only ourselves. To the perpetrator(s) of this horrible crime, sometimes our caregivers are not who or what we need them to be. Ultimately, as individuals, we are responsible for who we choose to be. My heart goes out to all concerned. We can’t change the world but we can make a difference. May peace and possibly forgiveness be with you at this time. A truck full of roses to my neighbour, Gerry, who spent an hour in my crawl space on Christmas morning, unplugging my drain pipe. We were able to have Christmas dinner as scheduled. A huge bouquet of roses to the gentleman who joined in singing aloud with the piped in Christmas music at the Bank of Montreal in Guildford. After coming from the mall and the Christmas shopping chaos it was wonderful to hear the spirit of Christmas being sung so beautifully. All the best to you in 2014!

Rasode’s flame-fanning after murder disgusting The Editor, Re: “Mayor Watts apologizes for liking Facebook post calling Rasode coward,” the Now, Jan. 7. You’d think that if the Now were in aid of serious journalism, you would ask for a comment from me, since you took the time to selectively choose from my Facebook posts – which I fully stand behind. You elected to escape with just a few statements, when my clear aim was to support a city which you purport to represent. Surrey, specifically Newton, is leaps and bounds better than it was a decade ago – and infinitely safer. The drug business is correcting itself on Surrey streets as it did in Abbotsford and Vancouver prior to that. Barinder Rasode should be deeply ashamed for trying to score political points when Julie Paskall’s body wasn’t even cold yet. She claims I don’t have all the “facts.” Try these. Rasode hasn’t met a soapbox she hasn’t happily straddled, and through her comments that Surrey “hasn’t done enough” essentially threw everyone under the bus who’s worked hard to support Newton – including Surrey Crime Prevention, the RCMP and Surrey city council. If she was seriously interested in supporting the community, why didn’t she co-ordinate her comments with, at least, the rest of council? Instead she took the alarmist, expedient route. If you’d bothered to do your research, the Now would discover how Rasode is the chair of the police committee and has chaired many meetings in Whalley and Newton. Where was her take away? What did she discover? What were her findings? Recommendations? The RCMP haven’t heard from her and neither have her council colleagues. Not a word.

We all weep for Ms. Paskall’s death. But using her death to advance in the media? That’s well past the limits of disgusting. Being a productive member of council is one thing, fanning the flames of hysteria and playing off a dead hockey mom are quite another. A. G. (Alex) Tsakumis,Vancouver

Off-leash dog park might help in Newton The Editor, Re: “Newton residents pack Surrey hall to find safety solutions,” the Now online. Thank you to the Newton Community Association in your efforts for putting together the meeting on Jan. 6. Unfortunately, I was unable to get in, but I do have an idea regarding the grove of trees area next to the arena/pool area that is presently a haven for drug deals and street people. I propose it be made into an off-leash dog park, for small dogs and perhaps larger dogs too, if the area is large enough. Right now, the closest park for small dogs is in Clayton Heights. Small dogs are intimidated by the larger dogs in the dog parks, which there seems to be a lot of in Surrey. Since there are a lot of seniors in the condos and families in the townhouses with small dogs in this area, it would be nice to have a dog park in walking distance, especially for those unable to drive. A dog park would increase foot traffic to the area, and we would be able to keep most of, if not all of the trees. Sort of a win-win situation, as I see it. I’m not sure who to direct this idea to, but hopefully someone from city hall will see it and it will go forward. Pauline Grant, Surrey

On stage in Surrey

‘Driving Miss Daisy’ rolls in Nicola Lipman, who stars as the title character in show coming to Surrey Arts Centre, says play ‘still so potent today’ Tom Zillich

Now staff Twitter @tomzillich

SURREY — Actor Nicola (“Niki”) Lipman is glad that she’d neither seen the movie Driving Miss Daisy nor read the script before Bill Millerd, artistic managing director of Arts Club Theatre Company, asked her to star in the company’s production of it. “This is one of those plays where you want to do it your way,” Lipman said. “You don’t want to do it the way it was done in the movie or the way it was done on Broadway years ago, you want to discover it for yourself, for now.” In the production coming to Surrey Arts centre starting next Thursday, Jan. 16, Lipman plays Daisy Werthan, an elderly white Southern Jewish woman who employs as her chauffeur Hoke Colburn (John Campbell), a black African-American. The story follows their relationship over a period of 25 years, from 1948 to 1973. The Pulitzer Prize-winning Alfred Uhry script, first staged in 1987 and later made into a movie starring Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman, is billed by the Arts Club as “a comedy of unlikely friendship” but, in Lipman’s opinion, it’s much more than that. “When I read the play, I was really taken aback and surprised – I don’t know why – by how wonderful (it is), what a great little gem it is, you know, and it’s still so potent today,” Lipman enthused in a phone interview with the Now. “It doesn’t seem old-fashioned, it seems very current and it’s not stale at all, and it still has a lot to say, because it’s about people, and it’s about relationships and it’s about aging,” she added. “In fact, I think the play has even more relevance today because of our aging population.” Lipman, who was born in Vancouver, moved back here from Nova Scotia a few years ago to care for her father, who will celebrate his 100th birthday in March. “It’s been great,” the actor said, “because I’ve worked here the last few years, have done some wonderful shows and got to know the community of Vancouver again, because there are so many wonderful actors and directors here. It’s nice to be part of that.” Lipman recently won a Jessie Richardson theatre award for her role as the Parisian housekeeper in the Arts Club’s production of Boeing-Boeing, which was staged at Surrey Arts Centre last fall.

Nicola Lipman, Brian Linds (middle) and John Campbell (right) in the Arts Club Theatre Company’s new touring production of Driving Miss Daisy, performed at Surrey Arts Centre from Jan. 16 to 25.

(The story) doesn’t seem old-fashioned, it seems very current and it’s not stale at all, and it still has a lot to say, because it’s about people, and it’s about relationships and it’s about aging. In fact, I think the play has even more relevance today because of our aging population. As part of its 50th-anniversary season, the company is bringing Driving Miss Daisy on tour to venues around Metro Vancouver before the show motors to its Granville Island stage for a month, starting Feb. 13. “This show is brimming with heart,” stated director Mario Crudo, who was an associate director with the Arts Club until he left Vancouver in the early 1990s to work with Magnus Theatre in Thunder Bay, Ont.

Driving Miss Daisy is staged at Surrey Arts Centre’s main stage from Jan. 16 to 25, from Tuesday to Saturday at 8 p.m., plus Saturday and Sunday matinees at 4 p.m. Tickets range from $29 to $43, including all fees. Student rush tickets ($15) are subject to availability 30 minutes before curtain. For tickets and more show info, call 604-501-5566 or visit tickets.surrey.ca.

ARTS & LIFE Monthly event

Irish Poetry Nights move two doors up Live and Local Jacob Zinn

Now contributor Twitter @jacobzinn

WHITE ROCK — When Slainte by the Pier closed, Ray Fynes had to find a new place to host Irish Poetry Nights. He didn’t have to look too far. Jimmy Flynn’s Celtic Snug – just two doors up on Marine Drive – will now host the monthly performances of Irish poetry, including readings by such authors as W.B. Yeats, Louis MacNiece, Seamus Heaney and Oscar Wilde. “Slainte had always been a receptive place because Jack Sixsmith, the owner, is

into poetry,” said Fynes. “He actually had done many of the readings and researched the topic for two or three of the nights.” The Irish Poetry Nights have proven to be a popular event since they started a year ago. Fynes said that between White Rock and South Surrey, about 15,000 people are of Irish heritage, so many locals come out every third Wednesday of the month to hear the readings. “There are some nights that people have been turned away,” he said. The idea for the performances came to Fynes after seeing an open-mic poetry show by Semiahmoo Arts, of which he is a member. “They do a thing called Zero to 360 – anyone has got six minutes to read something they’ve written,” he said. “I went one night and was impressed by some of the local talent, and it

reminded me of when I worked abroad.” While working overseas, Fynes frequented an Irish pub that was also attended by professors. He realized in 2012 that written works like poetry went hand-in-hand with “an environment where you can have a drink.” Every month has a

different theme, and Fynes said they try to get about 10 people to read for a variety of voices throughout the night. To mark the first anniversary of Irish Poetry Nights, the Jan. 15 showing will highlight contemporary female poets from Northern Ireland, including

Moyra Donaldson, Janet Shepperson, Maria McManus, Cherry Smyth and Joan Bleakney. Because Irish Poetry Nights do not run on an open mic format, anyone interested in reading or leading the performances should call Fynes at 604542-3667.

MARRIAGE PROPOSAL ON STAGE

Getting noticed, being connected and staying informed seems to be technically easy these days. And if you do something a bit different, the world might see it on YouTube. White Rock Players’ Club ended its production of Rumpelstiltskin with a new twist. As in most happily-ever-after fairy tales, most of the characters in the play find true love. Jennifer Tiles, in her Rocky Raccoon character, was one of the lonely characters that did not get a partner. That is, at least not until closing night. On closing night, Tiles was surprised with a proposal of marriage right before the end of the show. Her boyfriend (and now fiancé), Joe Thompson, set up this proposal – live and onstage – with the assistance of director Susanne de Pencier. Of course, most of the cast and all of the audience had no idea of what was going on. Who was this person who charged up on stage and started singing to Rocky? Tiles said yes, the audience cheered and were delighted in being part of a real-life drama. This is definitely a different ending to a traditional pantomime. May they all live happily ever after.

know I sort of made a New Year’s resolution to pay more attention to visual artists this year, but dang, I didn’t expect to get off to an early start. Thanks to local artist Daniel Tibbits, my sort of resolution is going to be easy to fulfill. At least this is a good place to start. The January 2014 issue of Arabella, a Canadian consumer art, architecture and design magazine, will profile local fine art painter, Daniel Tibbits, as an “artist to collect.” Let me pat myself on the back a bit Daniel Tibbits here. I told you he was collectable 10 years ago. Tibbits has a different way of looking at “normal” things. His style is something I couldn’t begin to define, but I like it. I’ve seen the progression of his artwork over a couple of decades and it is a great pleasure to see him get a further boost for his career with the profile in Arabella. This magazine showcases many talented artists and Tibbits declares that he is “honoured to be amongst them.” Daniel describes his work as something that reflects the natural world in a somewhat supernatural way. “Stones that fly, clouds that carry and sticks that glide. These are some of the images that excite me and have driven my painting passion for the past 20 years.” Has it really been that long? Wow. It seems such a short time ago that Tibbits was delighted to being a selected winner in the annual Surrey Art Gallery Association’s juried art show. I know that because his mother is a friend of mine, and at the time of this art show we were in the same adult tap class. And that is really how I “discovered”

Daniel, and I was lucky enough to see some of his early paintings from his high school days that were displayed in his parents’ home. It’s just one of those connections that happen in life from time to time. Born in New Westminster and now residing in Langley, Tibbits grew up in Surrey and studied fine arts for two years at Kwantlen College. Now his work has collectors from around the world and is currently represented at Gallery 8 on Salt Spring Island. Wish I had bought a few pieces of his work when he was still almost affordable. Oh well. At one time I had promised to make him a carry bag for his art, but that was a project that never did happen. Arabella, by the way, is a major quarterly magazine publication that has been distributed across Canada and the U.S. for six years. Each issue reaches close to half a million readers. So yes, it is a big deal.

ARTS & LIFE May 31 event

‘Color Me Rad’ run coming to Cloverdale Tom Zillich

YOUR TUQUE DOWN AND

YOUR CHIN UP

Now staff Twitter @tomzillich

Cloverdale Fairgrounds will be dusted with a rainbow of hues May 31 during Color Me Rad, a for-profit event that raises a small percentage of funds for charity. Similar 5K run/walk events have been held across North America since 2012. The events, created by a company in Utah, are billed as a marriage of fun and fitness, in which participants are blasted with bombs of coloured corn starch. Those who take part are encouraged to wear white, to fully reveal the “tsunami of color that’ll make colored tears of joy run down your cheeks and will renew your will to live,” according to a post at colormerad.com. The fee to register for the Surrey event is $35, plus service and processing fees. Between 3,000 and 7,000 people are expected at the event, said Mike MacSorley, GM of Cloverdale Rodeo and Exhibition Association. “We’re the landlord renting the space to them, a Salt Lake City (Utah) company,” MacSorley said.

Photo of a Color Me Rad event participant posted at www.colormerad.com. “It’ll be fun, and we’ll have different colour stations, one of them being inside the Agriplex, which, during the rodeo, is the Longhorn Saloon. It’s quite a neat event in terms of participation, and it’s a fun run, not a timed run.” Each city on the Color Me Rad calendar – close to 120 places across the continent in 2014 – has a “local charity partner which will receive a portion of the proceeds. The amount is based on the size of the event and the involvement of the charity.” As of this week, no charity partner has been named for the event in Cloverdale.

Concert opera ‘to get the music off the page’ Tom Zillich

Now staff Twitter @tomzillich

WHITE ROCK — When four singers and a pianist take the stage here Friday, Jan. 10, it’ll be all about the music. Arias, duets and ensembles written by Georges Bizet, Gaetano Donizetti and Giuseppe Verdi will be performed at First United Church by members of Vancouver Concert Opera Society. The group returns to the spacious venue on Semiahmoo Avenue with its “Three Cities, Three Composers” concert, which will also be staged in Vancouver and Sechelt this weekend. The organization, known affectionately as VanCOCO, was established in 2010 to create performance opportunities for operatic singers, both “emerging” and professional. “We are a concert opera society, so we do concert opera, generally with no staging or costumes, so it’s all tuxes and gowns,” Natalie Burdeny, the group’s founder and artistic director, told the Now. “The idea we have is to get the music off the page and for people to enjoy true opera without all this other stuff going on,” Burdeny added with a laugh. “Our events are really just about the voice and focusing on what the composer wrote and what the lyrics are, and getting the drama across vocally as opposed to with all the other aspects of theatre.” Last year at this time, the group staged the concert opera Die Fledermaus at First United Church. “The acoustics there are lovely, there’s a decent piano, the rates are affordable – all of that good stuff,” Burdeny said. “There isn’t a huge amount going on in the arts during the first couple weeks of January, which is partly why we chose this time of year to do our concerts.”

Junior A hockey

Eagles remain consistently inconsistent Michael Booth

Now staff Twitter @boothnow

New Year; same Surrey Eagles. The Eagles kicked off January by returning to their maddening habit of treading water in the standings by splitting a pair of weekend B.C. Hockey League games. The Eagles started fast and then hung on to beat the Cowichan Valley Capitals 6-4 Friday night before absorbing a 5-1 pounding at the hands of the first-place Rivermen in Langley the following evening. Friday’s contest at South Surrey Arena was marred by a scary incident when Eagles forward Jonah Renouf was knocked unconscious in a collision with a Cowichan player. Renouf was taken to hospital by ambulance, but Eagles coach Peter Schaefer said subsequent testing was favourable. The frightening drama weighed heavily on Renouf ’s teammates and Schaefer said it was still on their minds when they took to the ice in Langley Saturday. “We’re too inconsistent from game to game, but I can understand it this weekend,” he said. “We had an issue with Renouf against Cowichan and it was a very scary situation. The game was delayed and he was taken out on a stretcher. After seeing that, a lot of the guys were rattled by it and so were we as coaches. It was a difficult situation to go through and then be ready to play again in Langley the next night. Obviously

Eagles captain Brett Mulcahy (10) and Capitals’ goalie Francis Marotte watch the puck sail wide of Cowichan net during Surrey’s 6-4 win Friday at South Surrey Arena. (Photo: GARRETT JAMES) our heads just weren’t in that game.” Surrey got off to a fast start against the Capitals, scoring the first three goals of the contest and led 3-1 at the first intermission. Cowichan battled back to cut the gap to a single goal on three occasions, but each time Surrey answered to maintain a two-goal

advantage. Nicolas Pierog scored twice in what would be his last game in a Surrey uniform. Luke Sandler also scored a pair while captain Brett Mulcahy tallied once in what turned out to be his final spin on the ice of South Surrey Arena. Pierog was traded to the Penticton Vees Saturday morning

(see related story below) and his absence coupled with the aftereffects of Renouf ’s injury had a negative effect on the Birds when they arrived in Langley Saturday night. The Rivermen had no such problems getting up for the match and, after a seesaw first period, took charge of the proceedings

with two unanswered goals in the middle frame and one more in the third period. Newcomer Anthony Conti scored the lone Surrey goal. The Eagles hit the road this week for a pair of games in Prince George against the division rival Spruce Kings.

Schaefer ships out veterans in advance of deadline One year ago, the Surrey Eagles mortgaged their future at the B.C. Hockey League’s annual Jan. 10 trade deadline with a future’s-laden deal that landed blue chip forward Adam Tambellini in the Eagles’ nest. The move paid off as Surrey went on to win the BCHL championship and the Western Canada Cup before their quest for a national title ended in the semifinal round of the Royal Bank Cup. As another transaction deadline approaches, the Eagles are once again dipping their toes into the trade pool although the circumstances are much different for first-year head coach and general manager Peter Schaefer. Instead of working with a team that is one good player away from championship contention, the current edition of the Birds has spent most

of the 2013-14 season flirting with .500. The team is third in the Mainland Division and in a position to make playoffs, but nobody is clearing space in the Eagles’ trophy case to make room for new silverware. With that in mind, Schaefer pulled the trigger on a pair of trades to send 20-yearold veteran players to contending teams in exchange for younger, talented forwards. On Saturday, the Eagles dealt power forward Nicolas Pierog to the Penticton Vees for Anthony Conti and future considerations. Schaefer made another move Monday, shipping captain Brett Mulcahy to the Vernon Vipers in exchange for Chase McMurphy and futures. Penticton is currently in first place in the BCHL’s Interior Division and are ranked 10th in the country, while Vernon will be the host team for the Royal Bank Cup in May.

“It’s tough to trade guys I’ve coached for almost two years now, but at the end of the day, it upgrades our players now and for the future,” Schaefer said. “The guys we traded gave us all they had and now our captain (Mulcahy) will be playing in the Royal Bank Cup guaranteed and Pierog just got offered two scholarships. That’s kind of what it’s all about at the end of the day.” Schaefer insisted he is not in selling mode, looking to write off this season in favour of future success. Both of the players joining the Eagles immediately have secured U.S. college scholarships for 2015 — Conti to Alaska-Anchorage and McMurphy to Alaska-Fairbanks — and will be in the Eagles’ nest for one more season while the two departing players are in their final junior A campaigns.

“The guys we acquired are different styles of players than the guys who left,” Schaefer said. “It clearly wasn’t working for us this year and sometimes it’s just a matter of tinkering with the chemistry of your second and third line players. “It’s tough to explain these moves even to the team because we are in a playoff spot. We are trading good players, but we are getting good players back and those players coming here will be here next year as well. I don’t know if we are really in a selling mode, but we are definitely upgrading for the future. Chilliwack sent (star forward Austin) Plevy to Brooks, Alberta and I would say that’s more of a selling move than anything we’ve done.” Late Tuesday Schaefer completed his wheeling and dealing by sending forward Luke Sandler to Nanaimo for futures.

fresh and fast food - anything is possible. if the idea of a pricey week-long detox retreat subsisting on spiritual chants and Kombucha has you shaking in your yoga pants, fear not: the new D-tox spa has arrived. at the petite new spot near the olympic Village, we tried the 30-minute microZone mini facial which was as effective as it was relaxing, and easy on the post-holiday wallet at just $30. follow that with a shellac manicure (ours lasted two weeks and counting, $45) combined with a 50-minute foot reflexology session to boost circulation and immunity. Grab a green juice from sister company aqua sushi + Juice Bar just down the road and you are in-and-out in less time than it takes to do a Lagree class. ’Cause that’s next week.

recently opened in the olympic Village, aqua sushi + Juice Bar offers both brown rice sushi and fresh-pressed juices for those on-the-go. all sushi here is brown rice or low-carb, and the salmon used is only of the wild sockeye variety. the real crab California mango ($10) and veggie ($6) rolls and kale goma-ae ($4) are made from the freshest ingredients, as are the five juice options ($6 for 16oz). Cleanse your system with the pineapple-apple-ginger-mint, or rejuvenate with the carrot-orange-grapefruitsginger-cayenne combinations — either way, each one is delicious.

Fine Vine

fashion favourite oak + fort recently reopened in a new shop a few blocks up the street from its original location.

Whistler getaways are good for the soul, thanks to fresh mountain air — and to all the culinary spots that keep us well-fed after a day on the hill.

Everything we’ve all come to know and love about the brand is here, and this airy woodand-white space truly feels like a reflection of the clothing: simple and clean, well-thought out and beautiful. the eponymous collection has even more pieces for us to covet now. We’ll be making room in our closet for quilted front black leather skirts ($68), cozy mottled mustard scarves ($38), staple simona leggings ($38), neutra tunics ($78) and Lottie knit hats ($24.75). sister line Loft 82 makes an appearance, too, in the form of warm shearling jackets ($188) and alex sweaters ($88). although the hanwha sweatshirt ($104) with square logo and side pockets is for men, we easily see ourselves, ahem, borrowing it from our fella’s drawer. oak + fort, still as mighty as ever. 355 Water st., Vancouver, 604-566-9199, www.oakandfort.com

Grill & Vine is the latest addition to the Westin resort & spa Whistler, a contemporary but casual space with upscale food offerings. open for both breakfast and dinner, every menu item is made from fresh ingredients, coming by way of local suppliers such as Pemberton’s north arm farm. for starters, the crispy quail ($15) is a savoury twist on traditional chicken and waffles. mains come straight from the grill and stone hearth oven; you can’t go wrong with the light Louis Lake steelhead ($30) or the hearty wild board lasagna ($26). sides here are the definition of comfort food — think chorizo tater tots ($6) and truffle mac & cheese ($8). the wine list of local and international labels is just as phenomenal, and available by the glass, carafe or bottle. après-ski just got a whole lot swankier. 4090 Whistler Way, Whistler, 604-905-5000, www.westinwhistler.com

Girls’ basketball

Crusaders golden in Cactus Jam tourney The Holy Cross Crusaders senior girls basketball team had a little extra something to declare when they cleared customs while returning from Phoenix on Jan. 2. The Crusaders were in Arizona for the annual Cactus Jam tournament where they became the first Canadian team to win the event’s elite division. Canadian teams have done well in the past at the Cactus Jam with Elgin Park and Riverside (Coquitlam) each finishing as high as second. “It was pretty fun,” said Holy Cross coach Steve Beauchamp. “We had been to that tournament a couple of years ago so I knew the calibre of the teams was pretty impressive. The kids were obviously excited to win there, but I don’t think they had an appreciation of what they accomplished. Later on I pointed out that this tournament has been around for quite a few years and a lot of good B.C. teams have played here and not won it. When they heard that I think it resonated a bit more for them.” Currently ranked third in the province for class AAA teams, the Crusaders warmed up with an exhibition win before opening competition with a 36-35 win over Seattle’s Kings High. Holy Cross topped Sonoma Valley (California) 51-45 in the semifinal round and then clinched the title with a 30-26 win over Cooksville (Tennessee) in the championship finale. The tournament is played without a shot

clock, a key factor in the abnormally low scores in the games. Beauchamp said the seemingly endless possession time hurt his team’s offence more than it’s defence. “There was no shot clock and that made things, um, interesting,” he said. “It definitely changes the product on the floor because we had to play defence a lot longer. We’re a pretty good defensive team though, so that didn’t bother us much. “On offence you could see how it kind of played games with our girls’ minds after a while. Instead of making two or three passes and then taking a shot like we would with the 24-second clock, our girls started doubting whether it was a good shot to take and instead would dish it off trying to set up a better chance. There was more apprehension and hesitation to take shots than they normally do.” Alli Buck was named the tournament MVP while Samantha Beauchamp was a first team all-star selection. The Crusaders coach also singled out Michelle Bos, Rachel Beauchamp, Nicole Vander Helm and Amy Sprangers for their efforts in Arizona. “The tournament was just what we needed in terms of competition,” he said. “It was nice to win it, but for our girls, their focus is on what’s happening this month here at home with a big game against (top-ranked) Brookswood, the Firefighters tournament, the Catholic championships and Tessa’s tournament.”
