Just temporary fixes coming for cash-strapped crowded district

NEW PORT MANN: Will it take its toll – or not?

Q 2007 Cost: Free Vehicles per day: 125,000

Q 2011 Cost: Free Vehicles: 140,000

Q 2013 Cost: Tolled Vehicles: 150,000

Q 2017 Cost: Tolled Vehicles: 178,000 (breaking even)

Q 2021 Cost: Tolled Vehicles: 189,000 (in the black)

(losing money)

The B.C. government predicts subsidies for the new span will end by 2017 – but that’s assuming an increasing number of drivers shell out. SEE ‘PORT MANN’ PAGE 5 ALSO SEE ‘GOLDEN EARS’ PAGE 4

‘Made-inSurrey’ solution needed for school woes by Sheila Reynolds THE SURREY School District needs $250 million. Now. That would provide two new high schools, says District Supt. Mike McKay, and four or five new elementary schools. It would also help reduce the sea of portables sitting at schools such as Hazelgrove and Cambridge elementaries and relieve pressure at some local high schools where simply navigating crowded hallways between classes can be difficult. Instead how- Mike McKay ever, thousands of Surrey’s elementary school kids will continue to learn in portable classrooms and every high school is looking at extending days or expanding online options in order to accommodate more teens.

High schools: Changes coming From page 1 In an editorial board meeting with The Leader and Peace Arch News Wednesday, McKay, as well as Surrey Board of Education chair Laurae McNally and vice-chair Shawn Wilson, shared the ongoing financial strains and complexities faced by the ever-growing district. Surrey ushered in more than 800 new students last fall and is expecting another 1,167 or so to arrive this September. The city is different than any other in B.C., most areas of which have declining enrolment and are looking to close schools because there aren’t enough students to fill them. “The case the board has made relentlessly ... is we need a made-in-Surrey solution,” said McKay “We do not fit the mould,” added McNally. The opening of Adams Road Elementary in Cloverdale this year represented the last of the capital money the province approved for the Surrey School District. That was back in 2005. Apart from funding for seismic improvements and dollars targeting full-day kindergarten space, no building money has been sent Surrey’s way for six years. Even if the $250-million cheque the district fantasizes about was delivered today, it would be 2013 or 2014 before a new school would open here. In the interim, the district is trying to come up with temporary fixes that still serve students and parents well. “If you don’t have control of the purse strings and your enrolment continues to grow, what do you do?” asked McNally. Time and space, the district decided, are the only variables left to consider. Two secondary schools – Lord Tweedsmuir and Earl Marriott – have already decided to adopt a version of a flexible schedule this fall that would see the school day extended to five blocks from four, with students perhaps starting earlier or staying later than they do now. And every other high school in the district is also being asked to assess its needs and explore alternate scheduling options. Some may not need to vary things too much, while other schools may choose to make more significant changes by September. “It will look different in every secondary Laurae McNally school,” said McNally. During public consultation sessions held last fall, the district heard consistently that residents wanted to ensure their kids can get into their neighbourhood schools, that they can get the courses they want, that choice programs like French immersion have stability and won’t be moved from location to location, and that portables are temporary solutions only. The hope is that making scheduling more flexible and/or thinking outside the conventional school day might achieve those desired goal – at least temporarily. Apart from capital funding woes – money that pays for school buildings and other physical space – the district is also facing a $10-million operating budget shortfall. Operating money pays for things such as salaries, programs, supplies, utilities and services that generally keep schools functioning.

“If you don’t have control of the purse strings and your enrolment continues to grow, what do you do?”

Police release list of B.C.’s 10 most wanted Two men are from Surrey by Kevin Diakiw TWO OF B.C.’s 10 most wanted are from Surrey.

The RCMP released a list this week of the top 10 most wanted suspects in the province. Dean Jeffrey Anderson is wanted by the Surrey RCMP for assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm and breach of probation. He is well known to police and is considered a violent offender. He is alleged to have hit someone with a bottle outside a bar in North Surrey. He is Caucasian, 41, 5’11”, weighing 221 lbs and has brown hair and brown eyes. He is considered armed and dangerous, and the public is warned not to try to apprehend him. If you see him, call 911 immediately, or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. Also making the list is Apollo Alex Verde from Surrey, who is wanted for 32 counts of fraud or fraud-related offences. He is alleged to have committed extensive credit card fraud as well as obtaining unauthorized access to credit data from one of Canada’s largest credit reporting agencies.

Dean Jeffery Anderson

Apollo Alex Verde

The illegally obtained credit information allegedly allowed Verde to access bank accounts and also obtain high value credit cards. Many of these credit cards found their way to Las Vegas area casinos, where large cash advances were obtained. During this investigation police discovered that Verde had also allegedly been involved in the fraudulent transfer

of land titles. Police say he went so far as to steal the title to a property owned by his own mother and then obtained a mortgage on the property, using those funds to finance a Ferrari. Verde is also wanted for related offences in Ontario, Alberta, and the United States. He is described as an Indo-Canadian, 38 years old, 5’8”, weighing 185 lbs with black hair and brown eyes. He is formerly known as Jaspal Singh Virdi of Surrey. If you see him, call the nearest RCMP detachment, or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. “We asked detachments and specialized investigative units across the province for the names of their most wanted suspects,” said Insp. Tim Shields, senior spokesperson for the RCMP in British Columbia. “These 10 are the names we got back. They are wanted for violent and serious offences, and the sooner we can get them off our streets, the better. We also want to send these ten wanted people a message: The public are now watching for you as well, and you have nowhere to run and hide.” For the full list of B.C.’s Most Wanted visit the BC RCMP website at http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/bc/most_wanted-eng. htm kdiakiw@surreyleader.com

Golden Ears subsidy $33M this year Toll revenues short of costs as driver shun new bridge by Jeff Nagel TRANSLINK IS counting on a 26-per-cent jump in the number of motorists who will pay to use the Golden Ears Bridge this year, but the costs of the bridge will continue to far outstrip the tolls coming in.

Even with the rosier traffic forecast, the transportation authority will still pay out $33 million more than it receives in tolls for the Fraser River crossing connecting Surrey and Langley to Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge. “We knew for the first

few years we would be subsidizing it,” TransLink spokesman Ken Hardie said. “But we are subsidizing it more than expected because traffic volumes have not increased to the levels we thought they were going to be.” TransLink’s budget

calls for toll revenue to climb to $37.8 million from $30 million in 2010, the bridge’s first full year of operations. It gives no rationale for the projected increase when large numbers of motorists continue to refuse to take the tolled crossing.

Even if the number of users rise as fast as hoped, TransLink will remain far short of covering its $71.1 million in costs for 2011 – which consist of a $46.4-million capital payment to the bridge’s private contractor, the $11.9-million operating payment to the contractor and $12.7 million in debt servicing. Hardie denied the current shortfall represents any risk to taxpayers. Other projects are under budget and TransLink can absorb the extra bridge subsidy until revenues improve, he said. “We’re not looking at raising fares or taxes or anything else as a result of the Golden Ears Bridge performance,” he said, adding project is only 18 months into a 30-year contract. “The cost of the bridge will over time be covered by tolls.” This year’s shortfall will bring TransLink’s cumulative deficit on funding the new bridge to $63.8 million for the first three years. The payments to the private partner continue escalating each year until they peak in 2014. But TransLink expects the revenue picture will change significantly for the Golden Ears Bridge in 2013, when tolls kick in on the new 10-lane Port Mann Bridge and it no longer offers an easy free alternative.

BLACK PRESS PHOTO

About 25,000 vehicles cross the Golden Ears Bridge each day – less than projected. “People will make their choice of which bridge to use based on the efficiency of the trip – the time it takes to get where they’re going,” Hardie said. TransLink also plans a new initiative this year to drum up more Golden Ears users, in part by marketing the time-saving benefits to drivers, especially commercial truckers, who now detour via the Port Mann to avoid the toll. About 25,000 vehicles a day cross the Golden Ears Bridge, while five times as many use the Port Mann. Asked whether changes could include adjustments in the toll charged or the adoption of variable time-of-day tolling to attract more users, Hardie said everything is on the table but added it’s too early to provide details. Base tolls for regular

cars with transponders now pay $2.80 ($3.35 or $3.95 for those who don’t have transponders or aren’t registered at all) and that is expected to rise for inflation again this summer. Unlike other major bridges – including the new Port Mann where the province has opted to borrow the money directly and taxpayers are already shouldering significant costs – a private partner financed and built the $808-million Golden Ears Bridge and will operate and maintain it for 30 years. There is no federal or provincial money in the bridge, Hardie said. He also noted the previous costs of operating the former Albion ferries has been used to keep the Golden Ears tolls lower than would otherwise be required. jnagel@surreyleader.com

Follow the rules in Bear Creek Park TransLink SURREY’S BEAR Creek Park is one of the best

parks in this city. All the citizens of Surrey, especially people who are living in the neighbourhood, are enjoying this park on a daily basis. Seniors come to spend their free time by sitting in the designated areas and enjoying their time with others. People of all age groups go there to relax, some of them go there to enjoy their walk on the beautiful trails and in the garden area, and many people spend their time on the oval track. For the kids there is a beautiful play area. Every day you can see lots of kids with their

parents; weekends are the most crowded days. All these people go there to enjoy their time and they want the park nice and clean and for their family to be safe. But as a regular jogger at the park, I noticed some illegal activities. In the evening you can see people smoking marijuana on the trails and in the garden area. Friday and weekend nights you can see people drinking inside their cars. Also, you can see lots of people not following the park rules while there are bylaw signs everywhere. Recently, I noticed lots of people bringing their dogs with them. Most of them are law-

abiding but there are lots of people who never follow the rules. They bring their dogs and let their dogs off the leash. Some dogs like pit bulls are seen roaming around off the leash and it can be very scary for kids and seniors. There are signs of bylaws but you will rarely see bylaw officers patrolling the park. In the past, many bad incidents did happen in this park but I think the city should pay more attention to this park when security issues come up. Dilbar Kang Surrey

Don’t scrap the Port Mann, move it WITH REGARD to the Pattullo Bridge replacement or rebuild, I would like to offer this idea as a possible solution. The existing Port Mann Bridge could simply be dismantled and relocated to the north side of the existing railway bridge that is next to the existing Pattullo Bridge. Large sections of the bridge including roadway could be barged down the river and repositioned on new foundations. This new location would offer better alignment with existing roads and as opposed to alternative ideas, would also significantly reduce disruption to traffic flow during construction. The Port Mann Bridge has five lanes and has already had some seismic upgrading. Any further upgrading could be done at the time of construction. This bridge is scheduled to be dismantled anyway at significant cost, as it will have to be broken down into pieces small enough that can be trucked away. I’m sure that if the appropriate people were to “do the numbers” on this idea we may find it to be a viable solution that would be far more economical than a new bridge involving tolls and certainly better than refurbishing the existing Pattullo Bridge as it does not have adequate foundations to

managers overpaid

IT’S NOT ONLY time to leave TransLink, but to get rid of TransLink and its overpaid management altogether. My question that has been submitted to both TransLink and the minister of transportation – which both have failed to answer – is as follows: Why is it that Canada’s largest city, Toronto, can provide public transit made of buses, street cars and subway to five million citizens for half the cost of ours in Metro Vancouver, and under one single administration? Why do we in Metro Vancouver require an administration for TransLink, another for Coast Mountain bus company, same for West Coast Express and the SeaBus and the last the SkyTrain to Richmond? Does that means the management and CEO’s in the west have less brains capacity to run a public business than those in Toronto ? Al Dinis,Delta

Free ride must end I AGREE WITH the comments made

A letter writer suggests using the old Port Mann Bridge structure to twin the existing Pattullo Bridge (above). support any additional weight to the structure. It seems unfortunate enough that we should scrap a perfectly

good bridge and build an expensive new one that we will have to pay tolls for, but even more unfortunate that we scrap it when

it could be the logical replacement for the Pattullo Bridge. John Call

Former SET ‘gang’ is back together WHO’S ON First?

I see the old SET gang has re-united. Now we know who’s on First. Marvin Hunt supports secret deals for George Bush, overcrowded schools, and $200 million in intentional debt – an all-out free-for-all for those with money to pull the strings. But enough about SET/First. This is why I belong to the Surrey Civic Coalition. SCC believes Surrey deserves a balanced democracy where everyone is included and all neighbourhoods are heard. We believe that Surrey’s precious green spaces, parks, and agricultural land should be protected for the future, not chopped up and developed by the highest (or lowest) bidder. We believe that our city council and Board

of Education should work together to build new schools as quickly as possible to erase the embarrassing number of portables which keep families and business from relocating to Surrey. We believe local government should provide community amenities like safe streets, parkland and that Surrey should plan now for a major new activity centre for concerts, hockey, trade shows and community events in the City Centre area, near transit, before all that precious land is gone. We believe that development should be sustainable and focused on smart growth within existing town centres that support better public transit. And we believe more can be done to generate high-quality jobs within Surrey and to support

small businesses here. Surrey can become an international centre for green industry and sustainable growth. All Surrey needs is the will of the voters. Strong debate depends on people with different points of view. We need choices for the Board of Education and Surrey council. Our city deserves the best; I believe we need long term planning that ensures the livability of Surrey now and in the future. The SET/First way: “Develop now, plan later” simply isn’t good enough. Shiny posters, catchy slogans, and former US. presidents do not mean good government. S.urrey deserves open honest and inclusive debate. Gary T. Robinson Former City of Surrey Councillor

by letter writer T. Woodhams, Its high time the City of Surrey comes to grip with the secondary suite disaster, the ESL disaster, and the city’s inability to enforce bylaws that have been in place for years. It is time for those who have been getting a free ride on the back of all taxpayers to buck up. It should be the responsibility of those who chose to come to this country to prepare to learn the common language by not having those that do pay for it. The infrastructure in place should be considered on all new developments proposed to ensure that development can be sustained without being a burden on the existing systems. Millions of taxpayer dollars are being wasted, and millions of dollars of tax that could be collected are not. And it has to stop. Robert Gary Parkes, Surrey

Once just a place for books, Guildford Library is the new hub for job hunters MICHAEL THOMPSON asks seven

job seekers a sobering question: How long do you think an employer looks at each resumé to decide whether it should be kept or tossed? The average time is 10-15 seconds, he tells them. It’s good reason for them want to make a best impression by taking part in the Guildford Library’s monthly resumé writing workshop. In three hours, Thompson (who works for Pacific Community Resources Society, a partner of the library) will show them how (and when) to present cover letters and highlight their experiences, skills and attributes. They’ll learn the differences between chronological and hybrid resumés and what separates accomplishments from experiences. “Right now, you’re marketers,” he tells them. “You’re marketing one of the best products out there – yourself.”

The resume writing workshop is part of the Library’s new role in a tough job market. Once a place to sign out books, the Guildford Library – the largest of Surrey’s eight libraries – is now a computer-equipped hub for job seekers looking to upgrade their computer skills, learn how to apply for jobs, and scroll through online databases and find “hidden” job markets. The last couple of years have been particularly busy for the library, says information services librarian David Kerr. “We’re finding that as well as being a job search place, we’re also a referral to what’s available in the community.” On top of the resumé writing workshops, the Guildford Library offers: • Electronic classrooms for people looking to upgrade their computer skills; • Career and job search workshops; • Information about accessing the “hidden” (not posted) job market – finding employers in a

All library services for job seekers are free, though some require a library membership.

Facial analysis nabbing driver’s licence fraud ICBC technology flags more than 600 suspects by Jeff Nagel FACIAL RECOGNITION technology is helping

Limited

r.

ICBC bust identity thieves who try to gain driver’s licences – sometimes to dodge driving bans and in other cases to illegally stay in Canada. The public auto insurer compares a card holder’s image with their existing image on file and millions of others in the database. The system analyzes fixed facial features, such cheekbone size and location and distance between eyes. More than 600 cases have been sent to ICBC’s fraud investigators since the technology was adopted two years ago. “Facial recognition technology has taken us to a new level in protecting our customers,” ICBC driver licensing vice-president Fred Hess said. “We’re now at the forefront of identity protection.” The facial recognition technology last year helped detect Surrey resident Sandeep Dhillon, who applied for a new licence in Richmond under the identity of another man, Jatinder Kumar. Federal authorities determined Dhillon was an illegal immigrant who had previously been deported for organized crime activity. He was arrested and deported again in December. Another man in Nanaimo got a bogus licence

in the name of a dead man to dodge his criminal record, parole restrictions and unpaid debt to ICBC. He pleaded guilty in December and was fined $5,000. That case was flagged because the same face was found connected to two different licences. Another case in Kelowna saw a woman caught trying to get a licence in her sister’s name after losing her licence for impaired driving. Even cases where identities were assumed long ago are now being uncovered. A Penticton man had for 15 years used the identity of a boy who died at age five in 1969 before the new system detected his fraud, which allowed him to dodge his criminal record and collect welfare while working. He was ordered to pay $13,000 in restitution. “Facial recognition technology is now enabling security checks that were not previously possible and helping to uncover fraud that would not have come to light without it,” said Ben Shotton, ICBC’s manager of driver licensing integrity. “It’s unlikely that any of these charges and convictions would have happened without facial recognition technology.” ICBC spends $8 million a year on thousands of fraud investigations. jnagel@surreyleader.com


Landfill coughing up greenhouse gases: Delta

B Mea Build More Meals for a Deal!

Mayors to meet over methane and CO2 emissions by Kevin Diakiw DELTA IS raising a stink over gases being spewed into Ladner from the City of Vancouver-run landfill. Late last year, Delta staff received several complaints about bad smells from residents close to the landfill. Landfills generate methane, a highly odorous and flammable gas which is supposed to be captured by landfill operators. They also emit CO2, which is a harmful greenhouse gas. “The estimated landfill gas collection rate for 2009 is 41 per cent,” wrote Mike Brotherston, Delta’s Manager of Climate Action and Environment in a report to council Monday. “This is well below the City of Vancouver’s estimated recovery efficiency of 77 per cent and well below Ministry of Environment guidelines.” Those guidelines require a recovery of at least 75 per cent. Mayor Lois Jackson said Wednesday she was shocked to hear how much of the gas was escaping. “My concern is the recapture rate is half of what it should be,” Jackson said, adding she’s more concerned about the 360,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases being belched from the landfill each year. “That amount of CO2 is equivalent to all the emissions for everything in Delta – all the arenas, all the houses, all the cars, all trucks, everything,” Jackson said. In a Feb. 2 letter to Delta, Vancouver staff wrote that the amount of waste taken at the site was 32

“My concern is the recapture rate is half of what it should be.” Lois Jackson

per cent lower in 2009 than was forecast. That fact threw projections off. A “remediation plan” is under way at the landfill to increase the amount of gas captured, Vancouver staff wrote. Jackson is also troubled by the delay in getting the emission reports from Vancouver. Prior to Monday, the last report Delta received was for 2008. After much prodding, Delta received the 2009 figures from Vancouver, which indicated the 41-per-cent capture rate. Jackson said if the news was better in 2010, Vancouver would have already given Delta those numbers too. Jackson had a scheduled meeting with Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson in the coming weeks, and now she says this topic will be top of the

agenda. “We didn’t realize we’d be dealing with that, but that will be the top of the list,” Jackson said. At that meeting, she said, she’ll be wanting the numbers for 2010, and “where are we with correcting the issue.”

A MESSAGE TO ALL RESIDENTS & BUSINESS OWNERS

Do you have a storm drain on or in front of your property? It is important to keep it clear, especially during melting conditions. Blocked storm drains may result in excess accumulation of water along the road area, a situation that could become dangerous if it subsequently freezes. It also helps reduce the potential for flooding of adjacent properties depending on the extent of the blockage along with the amount of melting snow and rain fall.

The debt clock is travelling 8,900 kilometres across nine provinces to raise awareness of climbing debt levels. For more information visit debtclocktour.ca

Falcon on last leadership lap Speaks to Langley group in bid to shore up support by Frank Bucholtz RICH COLEMAN and Mary Polak are doing all they can to ensure that Surrey-Cloverdale MLA Kevin Falcon wins the B.C. Liberal leadership on Saturday. That’s why the two Langley MLAs hosted a breakfast with Falcon on Wednesday morning in Langley City. He spoke to about 30 party members about the leader-

ship race, his experience in government and his connections to Langley. Both Coleman and Polak are among the 19 B.C. Liberal MLAs backing Falcon’s campaign. Coleman emphasized the importance of every vote. While the BC Liberals have adopted a weighted voting system with each constituency having 100 votes, how those votes are dis-

tributed is dependent on members’ voting. They can vote from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, either by telephone or computer. “Nobody knows how it will all break down,” Coleman said. “Nobody has ever done it before.” Coleman’s wife Michelle is setting up and operating a phone bank to remind Fraser Valley Liberals to vote. It is similar to one she has operated during

each provincial election. Coleman said the vast majority of B.C. Liberals in his riding of Fort LangleyAldergrove will likely cast their ballots for Falcon. Polak recounted how Falcon made sure the 204 Street overpass in Langley City would go ahead. The project, a high priority of city council, was running into some snags that

threatened to shelve it. She asked Falcon, then minister of transportation, to have a quick conversation with her and then-mayor Marlene Grinnell, and within 24 hours, the problems had been resolved. “It went ahead, and it wouldn’t have otherwise,” she said. Polak said Falcon was her campaign manager when she was first elected to Surrey school board in 1996, and he brings that type of experience to the premier’s office. “We are voting for someone who will rebuild the party infrastructure and make sure we’re ready for 2013.” Falcon emphasized the importance of keeping the party together after the leadership votes have been cast. He said the party is a coalition of people with varying political affiliations federally, but exists to keep the NDP out of power. “You are the hiring committee,” he told members. “There are three things to keep in mind as you are hiring — who can keep the caucus united and together; who will build the coalition and who will show leadership to reconnect with the public and provide good clear sound leadership for the province.” Falcon said that he is planning to win, but even if he doesn’t, he will run in the next

Deadly highway crash One killed, two injured in multiple truck collision by Tracy Holmes ONE MAN is dead and

two others, including a Surrey man, are in hospital with serious injuries following a crash Monday night involving three semi-trailers. Police say the loaded commercial trucks – one driven by a Surrey man – collided on Highway 1 near Hope around 9:15 p.m., when a southbound 2001 Peterbuilt Super B carrying lumber failed to negotiate a curve, crossed the double-solid centre line and struck a northbound semi head-on. The Peterbuilt was being driven by a 30-year-old Abbotsford man; the second semi, a 2001 Volvo tractor, was being driven by a

55-year-old Surrey man. The trucks came to rest blocking the entire roadway. The Volvo was then struck broadside by the third semi, which was also headed south with a load of lumber. Drivers of the first two trucks were taken to Canyon Hospital in Hope with serious injuries. The third semi driver, a 43-year-old Abbotsford man, was not injured. The Surrey man’s co-driver, a 50-year-old Calgary man, died at the scene. His name has not been released. Police believe heavy snowfall and slippery road conditions may have been factors in the crash, however, all three trucks will undergo mechanical inspections.

Highway 1 remained closed in both directions until noon Tuesday. Anyone who witnessed the crash but did not speak with police at the scene is asked to contact Const. Steve Small at 604-702-4039.

Cable barrier saved woman’s life: Police POLICE ARE crediting

a new cable median installed along Highway 99 with saving the life of a Surrey woman Sunday night, after she lost control of her SUV and flipped it over the barrier. “It did make a difference,” said Deas Island RCMP acting Cpl.

Robert Sayer. “The cable barrier absorbed enough of the kinetic energy that she was able to stop before actually colliding with another vehicle.” The woman, a Surrey resident in her 50s, was southbound on the highway around 7 p.m. Feb. 20 when she was apparently cut off by a Nissan sedan just north of the Burlington Northern overpass. Her Ford crashed into and over the cable barrier, flipping “multiple” times, Sayer said.. Sayer said investigation is ongoing, however, speed was a factor in the crash. The woman was released from hospital about four hours after the crash with minor injuries.

B.C.: New premier this weekend From page 20 A supporter of his insisted on staging a fundraiser in Prince Rupert, which has been an NDP stronghold for most of the past 40 years. Falcon suggested that they do a coffee shop meeting with interested people, but his supporter insisted on a full-blown

fundraising event, and 250 people showed up.

Number-one fundraiser KEVIN FALCON took in

more than $708,000 in campaign contributions – the highest amount of the four remaining candidates.

TFN aiming for ‘best little seaside community’ THE TSAWWASSEN First

Nation is open for business. That’s the message TFN Economic Development Corporation (TEDC) Chief Executive Officer Chris Hartman gave guests at a Delta Chamber of Commerce luncheon earlier this month. Hartman gave listeners an overview of TFN’s land use plan, which sets out the designations for their land which the First Nation gained control of when the treaty came into effect in April 2009. “There’s an awful lot of things that TFN right now is working with in terms of moving this from land and a piece of paper to the best little seaside community in all of Canada,� he said. Hartman said economic, social, environmental, and cultural sustainability are at the forefront. For instance, important to the TEDC is the creation of sustainable jobs and training opportunities for TFN members. “So every development project that comes in, we talk money, we talk opportunities.� For example, the

TEDC is working on a program where TFN’s artisans can have the education and support to also become great businesspeople. It has also started a skills training centre for members so employers can look to TFN for trained workers. About 335 acres in the land use plan have been set out for industrial development, an area Hartman said is a prime location for on-land activities that support container traffic given the site’s proximity to Deltaport. He added TFN was the only First Nation to secure federal government stimulus funding

from the Canada Economic Action Plan, currently being used to initiate development of the industrial lands. By spring of this year, he expects the servicing of the first 100 acres of the industrial park to be complete. Another 175 acres of TFN land is proposed for mixed use of commercial, hotel, business park and residential units. About 175 acres of land is in the Agricultural Land Reserve. Other parcels on the map are designated commercial enterprise/residential, protected tidal marsh, and a managed forest area.

Hartman said they are letting people know they have a stable and predictable government and land ownership model that encourages development, and that as a result of their plans he believes TFN will become a destination. Land ownership on TFN land comes in two forms: Tsawwassen public lands, and Tsawwassen Fee Simple Interest (TFSIs), he explained, where private land owners can enter into longterm lease agreements with non-TFN members for up to 99 years. Hartman said TFN is looking for partnerships that work for both sides.

by Christine Lyon PORT METRO Vancouver

announced it is taking steps to expand Deltaport. The Terminal 2 project, part of the port authority’s Container Capacity Improvement Program, would add three more berths to Roberts Bank, with an expected capacity of two million TEUs (20-foot equivalent units) per year. The project has been in the works for several years, and the port is currently analyzing the site to determine ground conditions and suitability for development. On Monday (Feb. 14), Delta council adopted a resolution to schedule face time with federal officials during the Federation of Canadian Municipalities annual convention in June to discuss issues relating to the proposal. In the past, council had expressed environmental concerns about the $400-million Deltaport Third Berth project, which opened in January 2010. “We haven’t seen the complete buildout and the growth that’s going to come as a result of the third berth and the completion of the South Fraser Perimeter Road,” said Coun. Scott Hamilton. “We really don’t know what the impacts are and they’re announcing another terminal.” Hamilton wondered if Delta has already taken its fair share of port development. “Are they trying to divert a considerable amount of containers from Vancouver to Roberts Bank in order to free up what is extremely valuable waterfront real estate and use it for some other purpose?” he asked. Given Delta’s experience with the third berth project, city staff said certain concerns must be addressed to ensure the regulatory review process is done efficiently and effectively. “There must be assurances that a development on the scale of T2 can be undertaken without adverse environmental impacts, and that the cumulative effect of ongoing development in the region is not jeopardizing the marine ecosystem,” said Sean McGill, director of human resources and corporate planning, in a report to council. McGill said federal regulators should be asked to confirm the project will be assessed by an independent review panel. During construction of berth three, he said there were “issues relating to enforcement of the environmental certificate” and a “lack of clarity” regarding the responsibilities of the various stakeholders. Local citizens group Against Port Expansion (APE) said this week it is opposed to any further container port development on Roberts Bank, worried the industrialization will destroy wetlands, agricultural land and cause pollution. The group says Canada does not need the expanded container port now or in the future.

Deltaport’s new Third Berth opened in January of last year. Port Metro Vancouver is moving forward with its plans to expand at Roberts Bank. “With the container volume growth experienced by Port Metro Vancouver in 2010 they only handled about the same volume of containers as in 2007,” stated Roger Emsley, executive director of APE in a letter to council. “Even if Port Metro Vancouver manages a steady annual growth of say five per cent (which could be lower with possible losses for ships diverting via the Suez and Panama canals straight to East Coast ports), then by the year 2020 Port Metro Vancouver may still handle less than four million TEUs annually,” he added. But the port authority says container traffic through Canada’s Pacific Gateway is expected to double over the next 10 to 15 years, and without substantive improvements a “gap” in capacity could emerge as early as 2017. “Our mandate and overarching goal is to support growth in Canadian trade,” said Robin Silvester, president and CEO of Port Metro Vancouver. “Roberts Bank is very well positioned to accommodate future trade growth because it’s an established route that offers excellent access to important Lower Mainland markets as well as North American transportation corridors.” The port authority expects

about four million TEUs of additional capacity will be required to meet container demand forecasts in 2030. The Delta Chamber of Commerce agrees another expansion is necessary. “The weight of the world’s economy has shifted to the Pacific Rim and we’re a major part of that area,” said chamber chair John Appleby. “Our only concern is that the supporting facilities be built with a sufficient level of efficiency to allow us to accommodate the increased traffic.” He is concerned that South Fraser Perimeter Road is being built too small, and the traffic lights will cause major road disruptions. “We want to see overpasses.” Appleby hopes the port authority will look at additional ways of carrying materials, such as the Fraser River. “You just can’t build roads big enough, you can’t build railways big enough, you have to use other methods and other techniques.” An environmental assessment must occur before construction can begin. Port Metro Vancouver will also carry out seven rounds of public consultations over the next six years.

A Chilliwack dairy farm is behind a court challenge to legalize consumption of raw milk. FILE PHOTO BLACK PRESS

Find our

Raw milk farm inspections on hold Court challenge now underway by Jeff Nagel HEALTH INSPECTORS

won’t launch any new crackdown of a controversial Chilliwack dairy farm while its founder pursues a court challenge that aims to legalize consumption of raw milk. Alice Jongerden appeared in B.C. Supreme Court Feb. 18 to try to overturn a March 2010 court order that barred her from producing and packaging unpasteurized dairy products. The court found the previous court action between Jongerden and Fraser Health is concluded and her constitutional challenge should target the provincial government rather than the health authority. Jongerden’s lawyer, Jason Gratl, has now refiled the challenge against the Attorney General, alleging B.C.’s Public Health Act banning raw milk production as a public health hazard violates her constitutional right to liberty and security of the person and that penalties of up to three years jail and fines of $3 million are far too harsh. Fraser Health spokesman Roy Thorpe-Dorward said the authority will take no further enforcement action against the current farm operator until Jongerden’s challenge is ultimately decided in court. “The government’s commitment to back away from aggressive prosecutions is a relief for us,� Jongerden said

in a statement. “We now have some breathing room while the courts determine whether Canadians have a right to choose between whole and processed foods.� Jongerden last fall turned over the operation of her dairy farm to an Ontario raw milk advocate in order to avoid contempt-ofcourt penalties. She intends to resume operations as a cow-sharing co-op to supply her 450 Lower Mainland members with raw milk if she’s successful

in her challenge. Farm owners can legally drink the milk of their own cows, so it’s argued a cow share is likewise private consumption and not the illegal sale of raw milk to the public. The farm is currently operating as Our Cows and claims to sell milkbased cosmetics not for human consumption. Advocates claim raw milk is healthier than pasteurized but B.C. chief medical health officer Dr. Perry Kendall has maintained raw milk can be contaminated with bacteria and

poses a serious danger of illness. “We’re looking forward to cross examination of the chief medical health officer of the province, who has been vocal in his condemnation of fresh milk,� Gratl said. “We look forward to testing the strength of those convictions.� Gratl said he believes the current freeze on enforcement action goes beyond the Jongerden farm to other cow-shares and underthe-table raw milk sales elsewhere in B.C. jnagel@surreyleader.com

Devils drop playoff opener Sockeyes take game one of quarterfinal series by Rick Kupchuk THEY GOT the start they

wanted. But the finish was another story. The North Delta Devils jumped to a 3-0 lead 13 minutes into the first game of their best-of-seven quarterfinal series with the Richmond Sockeyes. But six minutes later, they trailed 4-3 and went on to lose the Pacific International Junior Hockey League contest 8-4 Monday night at the Sungod Arena. The Devils did manage to tie the game early in the third period when Christopher Manhas netted his second goal of the night, but the visitors

period to close out the scoring. Julius Ho and Coltyn

Hansen also scored for North Delta. Manhas collected one assist for a three-point game. Alex Ahnert started in the North Delta goal, but was pulled after making 21 of 27 saves as the Sockeyes went up 6-4. Alex Wind took over, stopping 11 of 12 shots. The eighth Richmond goal was into an empty net. The two teams played game two of their series last night in Richmond, and will be at the Richmond Arena again tonight for the third contest. Game four is tomorrow (Saturday) at the Sungod arena at 6:45 p.m. If necessary, game five is Monday back in Richmond.

United just a win away Surrey soccer team closes in on league championship by Rick Kupchuk WHILE MOST of the other Premier Division teams were participating in Imperial Cup play, the Surrey United Firefighters moved a game away from clinching a second consecutive league championship Saturday afternoon at Cloverdale Athletic Park. United blanked the Punjab Hurricanes 2-0, moving seven points clear of the Coquitlam Metro-Ford Wolves. Surrey has just two games to play, needing to win just once to wrap up first place in the Vancouver Metro Soccer League. The Wolves still have three games remaining, needed to win them all to stay in the race for the top spot. United got the winning goal just 10 minutes into the contest when Angus Burke tallied his league-leading 17th goals of the

season. Niall Thompson added a second goal, while Paul Shepherd made several key saves early in the game on his way to a sixth shutout. United will play 11th-place Croatia FC in the round of 16 of the imperial Cup tomorrow (Saturday) at 2 p.m. at Cloverdale Athletic Park. Two other Surrey teams in the Premier Division needed to win a preliminary round game to reach the round of 16 in cup play, including Akal FC, winners of just four of 22 league games and assured of relegation for next season. Akal upset Columbus FC, currently in fifth place in the 14-team Premier Division, by a 1-0 score Sunday night at Newton Athletic Park. Donald Kambere scored against the run of the play in the 60th minute for Akal, while netminder Nuno

Jesus blanked a Columbus team which played with just 10 men for the last 50 minutes of the contest. Akal faces a tough task tomorrow, playing the Wolves in Coquitlam. ICST Pegasus easily advanced in cup play, defeating Binger’s Army of Division One by a 5-0 score Saturday at Empire Field in Vancouver. Azad Palani netted a pair of first half goals for Pegasus, with Sahil Sandhu, Niko Marcina and Barinder Johal scoring in the second half. Palani now has nine goals on the season, tied for seventh in the Premier Divisions scoring race. Fyi-Amar Dhinsa was credited with the shutout for Pegasus, who will face Delta United Sunday at 2 p.m. at John Oliver Field in North Delta in the round of 16.

Hawks seek playoff bye Major Midget team winless against Kootenay by Rick Kupchuk EARNING JUST one point from two games against the struggling Kootenay Ice, the Valley West Hawks fell out of contention for first place, but still in the hunt for a playoff bye. The Hawks travelled to Castlegar for two games with the Kootenay Ice, the 10th place team in the 11-team B.C. Hockey Major Midget League (MML), losing 4-3 Saturday night and playing to a

3-3 tie Sunday morning. Valley West fell behind 2-0 after one period of the first game, but came back to take a 3-2 lead by the oneminute mark of the third period on goals by Langley defenceman Jordan Klimek, and Surrey forwards James Neil and Austin Vetterl. For Neil, his tally was a team-high 20th on the season. Kootenay replied with a tying goal three minutes into the final frame, and the winner with eight minutes to

play. The Hawks blew another two goal lead Sunday morning. Trevor Cox and Scott Cooke, both of Surrey, opened the scoring, with the Ice getting one back before the first intermission. Kootenay drew even after 40 minutes, then after Kevan Kilistoff of Langley gave the Hawks a 3-2 advantage, the Ice got a tying goal with five minutes left to play. With one weekend remaining in league

play, Valley West has a one-point lead over the Cariboo Cougars in the race for second place and a first-round bye in the playoffs. Both teams will be in Abbotsford for games tomorrow and Sunday, as the MML concludes league play with all teams playing in the Fraser Valley city. The Hawks will face the seventh-place North Island Silvertips for two games, while the Cougars play twice against the sixth-place Vancouver Chiefs.

Inside Track ...with Dan Jukich The countdown continues for what promises to be one of the most entertaining Saturday afternoons of the 2011 standardbred season at Fraser Downs Racetrack & Casino. You know what I’m talking about: the Standardbred Canada Western Regional Driving Championship with Jim Marino, Dave Hudon and Michael Hennessy representing Team BC against drivers from Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The top two drivers from Saturday’s eight-race competition advance to the Canadian National Driving Championship in Charlottetown, PEI on May 7. As Hudon was saying the other day: “Every driver will have a different post position in every race on Saturday and that’s good because having the number eight post is a handicap. I think it will be a fun day. We certainly have a great group of guys competing.” The Edmonton trio includes Keith Clark, Gerry Hudon (Dave’s younger brother) and Brandon Campbell, none of whom are strangers to Fraser Downs. Glen LeDrew (Saskatchewan) and Dallas McGee (Manitoba) round out the marquee roster of drivers. All of the drivers have pledged to donate a percentage of their Saturday winnings and Fraser Downs management will match that total number. The Western Regional drivers are expected to be in the house at The Downs Friday night when the $25,000 Keith Linton Final for 3-year-old BC-bred, sired or owned pacers takes place. The early choice is Boom Shazam, who’s coming off back-to-back wins for trainer Justin Currie. With all of the activity going on with the Western Regionals on Saturday, don’t forget that there will also be a $15,000 Guaranteed Win 4 sponosred by BCLC on races 6 through 9. And I want to remind you, too, that the annual Harness The Hope extravaganza takes place at Fraser Downs on Friday, March 4. A special $50 Clubhouse buffet includes dining and dancing, a blackjack tournament, silent auction, guest speakers … all this, while watching some exciting live harness racing in support of Breast Cancer Research.

Winter excitement! …It’s all here in BC!

RAY CARTER has attended plenty of Sport BC awards ceremonies, but the Ladner resident has yet to be in the spotlight. Until now. The longtime baseball devotee has been selected to receive the Daryl Thompson Award at Sport BC’s 45th Annual Athlete of the Year Awards, Feb. 24 at the River Rock Casino Resort. The prestigious award – which has previously gone to the likes of Terry Fox, Rick Hansen and John Furlong – recognizes a British Columbian who has contributed to sport in an extraordinary way over an extended period of time. Carter is being honoured for his 35 years of dedication to developing baseball in Canada at the local, provincial and national level. “It takes an amazing amount of passion to dedicate the time Ray Carter has to the development of sport in not only his community, but also his province and country,” said Tim Gayda, president and CEO of Sport BC. “It is people like Ray upon which amateur sport is built, and we thank him for his continued commitment over the years.” Carter was “shocked and excited” when he received the news a couple weeks ago. “I can’t believe that I’m singled out when I know so many other people, not only in

2009. For Carter, the difficulty of batting, throwing and catching sets baseball apart from all other sports. “It’s a tough game to learn and be accomplished at,” he said. “Hit the baseball three times out of 10, you’re considered a good hitter.” During his time with Baseball Canada, Carter has worked with young stars like Justin Morneau, Jason Bay and Adam Loewen who went on to play for Major League Baseball teams. But witnessing their success is just a bonus for Carter. “Seeing kids play the game and enjoy the game, that’s really the big thing that I get out of it.” His daughter never picked up the sport, but Carter’s four-yearold grandson is excited to join his first team in Surrey this season. “He’s looking forward to it and his grandpa is looking forward to it.” It may even inspire Carter to put his coaching hat back on after years of working on the administrative side. “Who knows? Maybe I’ll get back to it.” editor@southdeltaleader.com

GARRETT JAMES / CONTRIBUTOR

After coming up short in the BCHL scoring race, Brad McGowan of the Surrey Eagles can take solace in his nomination as the Coastal Conference’s nominee as the Most Sportsmanlike Player.

Eagles scorer nets award Brad McGowan named Most Sportsmanlike Player

AFTER A spectacular

season scoring-wise, Surrey Eagles forward Brad McGowan was rewarded for another aspect of his game. The 20-year-old from Langley was named the Coastal Conference winner of the Most Sportsmanlike Player award. The Westside Warriors’ Grayson Downing won the award for the Interior Conference. McGowan, who is in his last season of junior hockey, finished third in the B.C. Hockey League (BCHL) scoring race with 36 goals and 53 assists for 89 points. “He’s done it consistently; he hasn’t had that 18-point weekend where he gets named player-of-the week,� said Surrey coach Matt Erhart. “He just quietly puts up one or two points a game and goes

about his business.� McGowan, who put up 46 points as a rookie last season, is quick to credit the team and coaches for his success. “I didn’t really expect

“He just quietly puts up one or two points a game...�

Minor Hockey alum, Richard Vanderhoek. With Vanderhoek a year younger, the pair played together every second year through the Langley Minor Hockey ranks. “It was peewee where we kind of realized we played well together,� Vanderhoek said. “I always know where he is going to be out there, and he knows where I am. “We trust each other.�

Vanderhoek was second on the team with 26 goals and 45 points. Thanks in large part to McGowan’s scoring prowess, the Eagles finished second in the Coastal Conference. They will face the Coquitlam Express in a best-of-seven playoff series beginning tonight (Friday). McGowan is off to the Rochester Institute of Technology next season

Matt Erhart to be putting up this many points, but it’s been a bit of luck, and the coach has thrown me out there on the ice a lot, and I’ve just taken advantage of the opportunity.� He has spent the majority of the season on Surrey’s top line with another Langley

The tale of a turtle A dozen years after she wrote it, a Surrey author publishes a children’s story with an anti-bullying message by Jennifer Lang

I

JENNIFER LANG / BLACK PRESS

Paula Kolins’ new storybook for kids, called Turtle Has 3 Legs, features a reptile struggling to gain acceptance despite his physical differences.

f you’ve ever set an idea aside only to wonder, ‘What if?’ then you might take new inspiration from Paula Kolins. The Cloverdale author says her new children’s book, Turtle Has 3 Legs, was originally a story she wrote for her son to share with his kindergarten class at Martha Currie Elementary during show and tell. He’s 18 now, she says with a laugh, holding a copy of her new book – her first. “It’s always been in the back of my mind,” she says, explaining friends at the time encouraged her to have it published but she set the notion aside. Kolins says the rise in bullying awareness and anti-bullying initiatives like Pink Shirt Day convinced her it was time to pick up her manuscript again. So she took a local course on how to get published. Her instructor owned a publishing company, so after the course wrapped up, she submitted a manuscript for a children’s book for young readers. “I just thought, you know what? People always say they’re going to do things and they never do, and I just really thought to myself if I don’t do this, I probably never will,” she says. “So, I just went for it.” To her delight, the story was accepted. Just last week, Turtle Has 3 Legs became available for pre-sale on Amazon.ca. “I cried when I saw it,” says Kolins, a familiar face to patients of the Apple Medical Centre, where she works as the office manager. “It’s one of those things, if you don’t try it,” she says, “it will never be.” She says working with an illustrator on the book’s pictures took longer than she thought. She wanted the images to be realistic but kid-friendly – not cartoonish. “So we kind of went back and forth with that.” She may have written the story many years ago, but the creative memory remains fresh. When her sons were younger, she was “That mom!” – the parent who was always volunteering and getting involved at her kids’ school. (She blames it on separation anxiety – hers). Turtle Has 3 Legs is a story about a “sweet little turtle” who’s different because he only has three legs and finds acceptance from a bossy beaver, a preening swan and other creatures with classroom alter egos. Kolins was inspired by one of his classmates, a child with Downs Syndrome. He wasn’t bullied or teased, but she couldn’t bear to think that might change as he got older. “He was just a sweetheart,” she says. “That just got me thinking.” She hopes the book will remind parents to encourage their children to make friends with other children with disabilities or differences. “That is really the first step, accepting people, and teaching your kids to accept people.” She aimed the story at young readers, she says, because “I think you have to start early. When your kids are in Grade 6 or 7 and being targeted, it’s not too late, but it’s almost as if you’ve missed a golden opportunity when they were little.” Now, it’s her job to market the book. She’s going to try to get it into book stores and school libraries, and will sell it herself at swap meets and other venues. But first she plans to give a copy of the book – which is dedicated to teachers – to her son’s former kindergarten teacher. newsroom@surreyleader.com

going to get a much-anticipated facelift this summer, thanks to community contributions, a just-announced federal grant and matching funds from the City of Surrey. Surrey-North MP Dona Cadman was on hand at the arts centre Tuesday evening to announce funding of $118,075 will be contributed through the Canada Cultural Spaces Fund toward the replacement of the aging theatre seats at the facility in Bear Creek Park. “Our government is supporting the Surrey Arts Theatre because we know how essential a vibrant artistic community is to strengthening our identity and our economy,” said Cadman, who attended the event in place of Fleetwood-Port Kells MP Nina Grewal. The seats in the main theatre are more than 27 years old and have long exceeded the manufacturer’s estimated lifespan of 20 to 25 years. A

PITT RIVER

THE SURREY ARTS CENTRE’S main theatre is

year-and-a-half ago the arts centre launched an ambitious campaign to raise funds for the seat replacement and other required theatre improvements. About $45,000 has been raised to date through that effort. The City of Surrey will match the federal funds, meaning it will only be a matter of months until the renovations can start. The replacement project will begin this summer and is expected to be complete by December. The main stage will be closed for about two months while work is done. The carpeting will also be replaced and the theatre will be re-painted. Seats can still be purchased for between $350 and $500 – depending on their location – and sponsors will get a dedication plaque on the arm of a seat that will remain for the lifetime of the seat.

Lord Strathcona’s horse rides again by Ursula Maxwell-Lewis

No GPS, digital strategy, or satellite tracking, but simply the shock and awe of men, horses and brutal, unforgiving steel facing enemies and natural elements in the name of freedom, king and country. Mackay, a former rancher, teacher, submariner and lawyer, has plenty of material for his writing career. As president of the Vancouver branch of the Canadian Authors’ Association and a long time member of the Rain Writer’s group in Surrey, his advice to new writers is: “Just write. Every day. I must have written

not only dedicated years to researching the era, the cavalry and the art of writing, but made a pilgrimage with his wife, Pat, to France in 2008 for the 90th anniversary of the Battle of Moreuil Wood, where the Straths and their horses launched one of history’s last great cavalry charges on March 30, 1918. Weaving emotions generated by wind, rain and memories of scars (physical and emotional) left with his father and those who survived, Mackay ably translates his impressions into a period tale which returns the reader to a by-gone era.

WHEN BOB Mackay retired, he traded drafting legal briefs for crafting books. Soldier of the Horse, Mackay’s first fiction novel, arrived on his desk last week. The tale of passion, war, camaraderie, bravery and history takes readers from love and legal wranglings in Manitoba to a young soldier’s Great War survival in France with the famous WWI Canadian cavalry regiment, Lord Strathcona’s Horse. Based on the life of his dad, Tom Mackay, Bob

more than 350,000 words which have been condensed into 86,000 words for the novel.� Beginning with a very rough draft, regular writing kept the flow going. “The fun job was revising,� recalls Mackay, who admits seeing the first draft was exciting as was finally holding the finished work published by Touch Wood Editions, a publishing house focusing on stories about Canada’s West. Confessing that he may dust off a long buried manuscript involving a lawyer tangling with terrorists, Mackay

Work for upcoming exhibitions wanted by Alex Browne SEMIAHMOO Arts

(formerly the Community Arts Council of White Rock and District) has issued a call for artists for exhibitions to fill out its 2011 schedule at its gallery at Windsor Square (1959 152 St.). The organization has announced a preference for group shows – ranging from self-assembled groups of three or more artists whose work shares a common theme to established groups and guilds. However, Semiahmoo Arts president Barbara Cooper and manager Patrick Reynolds confirm that applicants must all be members of Semiahmoo Arts – which means they must each have paid the $20 annual membership fee before applying. “It’s not a very large amount considering what Semiahmoo Arts provides,” Cooper said. Artists should also note that, according to the exhibition application, the gallery takes a commission of 33.3 per cent on all sales. Five spaces are currently unfilled for 2011; June, July, August, October and November. Applications are also encouraged to include artists who work in both two and three dimensions (such as sculptures and installations). Deadline for submissions is Thursday, March 3, before gallery closing. Late applications will not be considered. Artists will be notified of the selection committee’s decision by Friday, March 11.

Similar conditions apply to another show planned by Semiahmoo Arts, Outside The Box Fibre Festival, an exhibition of textile art scheduled for the gallery for September. The call is open to any artists working with fibre, and, as the title suggests, is not necessarily limited to traditional definitions of textile art. Artists are encouraged to consider unusual materials, like metal, wood, paper and glass, as well as conventional natural and synthetic fibres such as wool, silk, cotton and polyester. Two-dimensional hanging artwork, as well as three-dimensional pieces, will be considered. Deadline for submissions for Outside The Box is Wednesday, June 15, before gallery closing. For more information and application requirements, visit www.semiahmooarts. com or call 604-5368333. Another opportunity for local artists to display their work is White Rock Community Centre’s Art On Display program at Miramar Village in uptown White Rock. The upcoming exhibit, Marine, seeks works relating to the seashore, ranging from “beaches, the sea, paddlers, sailors to fish and chip stands.” Entry deadline is Monday, March 7, 4 p.m. The Art On Display application can be found online at www. semiahmooarts.com. or can be picked up from the community centre at 15154 Russell Ave.

White Rock Players’ current mystery thriller (Coast Capital Playhouse, until Feb. 26), Lori Tych plays an emotionally charged central role. A poet and part-time librarian, Sara McKeon finds herself in a nightmarish situation when her lover, restaurant owner David (Jason Dedrick) is found shot to death.

Just as shocking are allegations that the man she thought she knew had an unsavoury past that may have included kidnapping, rape and murder. Her interaction with the officers investigating the case, intense ‘alpha male’ Det. H.E. Weber and the more easy-going Sgt. Al Kersnowski, convince her that her only option is to investigate the murder herself. Along the way she

in character roles, she confesses that playing a plum role that has her on stage for most of the show’s 28 scenes – and a romantic lead in the bargain – has whetted her appetite for more. She says she can identify with her character’s belief that materialism and possessions don’t add up to a good or happy existence. “Sara’s a minimalist in many ways – and I’m a little that way, too. I live a very simple life.”

enlists the help of friends to navigate an urban maze populated with characters whose motives are in question, including Carl Eisenstadt, Marie Defaria and Julius Gatz. The mystery is also relatively unexplored territory for Tych, who acknowledges “this is the most straight character I’ve played – I can’t go to my comedic default setting.” While she’s always been featured more

was this outrageously lovely diva – part Carol Burnett and part Gloria Swanson – that was just exhilarating.” Tych, who grew up on an acreage outside of Edmonton, said acting is something she originally “fell into.” “I didn’t pursue it in high school or university,” she said. “I was working as a bartender at a hotel in Edmonton where they had a dinner theatre. I’d been doing some singing, so when I was offered some roles, it seemed like an opportunity to learn my craft.” It soon became a passion for her, which she fueled by working with a small independent theatre company, Celebration, based in Winnipeg, and also Theatre Prospero, which toured Shakespeare plays to high schools.

hurled herself back into stage acting several years ago as a counterbalance to her busy career in the restaurant business – patrons of the local scene may recognize her from such venues as Beecher Street Cafe and Cielo’s. Mostly known for comedy, she’s acquired a reputation as something of a chameleon for taking on a wide range of characters in such plays as The Passion Of Dracula, Dearly Departed and Twentieth Century. “In Passion of Dracula I was Wilhelmina Murray, a take off – with many liberties – of Dracula’s eternal love,” she said. “In Dearly Departed, I played trailer park trash – a mother of three who aspires to be a singer – a busy-body drama queen in cowboy boots.

A painless collaboration SURREY PAIN and Wellness Clinic has been providing a free

consultation for all new patients for a donation to the Surrey Food Bank. “New patients are invited to make a donation to the Surrey Food Bank in exchange for their first consultation as part of the clinic’s Healthier Together campaign,” said Dr. Manjit Sadhra. As well, “We don’t charge a user fee for those low income people who are on the supplementary health benefits program. Those folks who are accessing services at the food bank likely cannot afford to pay a premium, so we want to do what we can there as well.” People can also choose to support KidSport or their high school dry grad fund. “The outpouring of support by people during the holiday season is terrific, but we are especially grateful for those folks that continue to raise funds and contribute food year round,” says Tiffany Parton, director of development for the Surrey Food Bank.

Hefeeda’s researchers will team up with Nokia to study, design and develop a framework for processing, streaming and rendering multiuser games, 3D video and 3D virtual environments on mobile devices. “There’s no doubt that mobile computing will soon replace PC-based computing for the average consumer,” he says. “Already, more than half of the world population uses cell phones or other mobile devices, and more mobile phones are used to browse the Internet than PCs. “At the same time, we are witnessing a trend towards the mass consumption of new media,” he adds. “Despite their promising nature, significant challenges remain
