Hang On They're Coming Back This Summer!

You can stop asking when THE SNOWBIRDS will be coming back to White Rock.

The Canadian Forces aerial team will perform their aerial ballet over Semiahmoo Bay Wednesday August 16.

 

Residents of Ocean Park are rising up to prevent a private liquor store from opening at the intersection of Crescent Road and 128th street in South Surrey.

The City of Surrey is currently reviewing a proposal for rezoning to permit a private liquor store on the corner of Crescent Road and 128th Street, near Fieldstones (project number 15-0446). The proposed outlet would be in very close proximity to elementary and high schools, Crescent Park, Crescent Beach, the marina and to busy community-based organizations such as the Crescent Beach Swim Club and Camp Alexandra. Residents are concerned that more readily available, accessible alcohol could result in increased impaired driving, public disturbances, vandalism, crime, violence, etc., particularly during certain times of the year such as holidays, high school graduation and the area’s very busy summer season.

A petition that opposes the proposal for a new liquor store at 128th Street and Crescent Road is growing. One of the concerns is that "the majority of customers at a higher priced, late night “convenience” outlet would probably be “opportunistic” drinkers or visitors headed to the park or beach."

Delta South Independent MLA Vicki Huntington Retires

A resident of Ladner Vicki was first elected in 1993 to Delta Municipal Council and returned to Council at or near the top of the polls in the four subsequent municipal elections. She declined to run again in 2008.

Ms. Huntington was elected as an Independent MLA for Delta South in May 2009. She was the first Independent elected to the BC Legislature in over 60 years, and made BC history in 2013 as the first BC Independent ever re-elected.

Not Good News For Us

Washington State's Department of Natural Resources Commissioner Peter Goldmark has delivered a blow to a Longview coal-export terminal by rejecting a tidal-lands a sublease from Northwest Alloy for a loading dock along the Columbia River. Millenium Bulk Terminal is expected to challenge this decision.

In a separate action Goldmark announced that 45 acres near the Cherry Point site north of Bellingham that had been proposed for a second coal terminal would be added to a protected aquatic reserve.

The two denials for coal exports from Washington very well will mean increased coal exports through British Columbia.

Parishioners Not Going Quietly

(Holy Cross Catholic Church Crescent Beach)

Members of the Holy Cross catholic church in Crescent Beach have vowed they will not give up their fight to save their church, Holy Cross as well as The Star of the Sea in White Rock have been slated for demolition. The money from the sale of the two churches is to be designated for a Parish Centre located adjacent to the other catholic church on the Peninsula, The Good Shepherd Church.

The parishioners of the Star of the Sea joined forces with the Knights of Columbus to oppose the sale of the Star of the Sea in White Rock. The church members of Holy Cross in Crescent Beach are now taking their fight all the way to the Vatican in Rome.

Joke Of The Day

To the irritation of the judge, a man was trying to be excused from jury duty. "Tell me," began the judge, "is there any good reason why you cannot serve as a juror in the trial?"

The man replied, "I don't want to be away from my job that long."

"Can't they do without you at work?" demanded the judge.

"Yes," admitted the juror. "But I don't want them to realize it."
