Massive crowds descended on to the White Rock waterfront last evening to visit BRIGHT WALK IN WHITE ROCK.

The city of White Rock has once again decorated the waterfront park with a beautiful light display that will be on display into the New Year.


This is what the weather was like this time last year

Who remembers this commute that day. Some residents took over 4 hours to get to Vancouver in the morning rush hour.


Mulligan Stew Honours Langley's Township 7 Winery

Longtime Vancouver disc jockey, host of Good Rockin' Tonite and Muchmusic VJ TERRY DAVID MULLIGAN hosts a wonderful podcast called MULLIGAN'S STEW (actual title of a novel about Terry's life). The podcast focuses on Canadian music as well as the wine industry with a focus on British Columbia wines.

This week the spotlight shines bright on 16th avenue's TOWNSHIP 7 winery. Take it away Mully.

Township 7 wins big in London

Mary McDermott in London

Mary was in London to receive the Best Sparkling Wine in Canada award from the Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championship!

For their Riesling driven  7 Stars Rigel. It was the runner up to the World Champion Aromatic Sparkling Wine from Italy.

Mary and T7 also won this award in 2021 with their Polaris.

Declared the best Canadian  sparkling wine in the World.

Before Mary and I talked about her new releases,  we discussed about what everyone else in the BC wine world is talking about – crop loss due to a deep freeze in December of last year.  A 54% reduction in crop and long term damage to vineyards.

Strangely, while the crop was reduced, the colder weather led to fewer clusters on the vines which in turn led to rapid ripening when Summer and Fall returned. Great flavours in the whites and complex concentrated reds followed.

New publisher for Peace Arch News

Steve Scott

Congratulations are in order. The Peace Arch News recently announced they have a new publisher, STEVE SCOTT.

My professional interaction with Steve has been limited to purchasing an election ad every four years in THE PAN. Conversely I have always had pleasant interactions with Steve socially at community events. A class act and I am sure under his direction we will see exciting new changes in the Peace Arch News.

The news media is constantly hammering away how they are dieing. Go ahead Steve, prove the wrong. You have your work cut out for you but I am pulling for you. If anyone can do it I think it is you that fully understands local news should be local news.

See you in the community my friend.

Break In Surrey Murder of Sikh Leader HARDEEP SINGH NIIJAR

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says it has charged an Indian national in connection with the foiled assassination attempt of a Khalistani separatist leader in that country, who has ties to Canada.

The office says the would-be victim, Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, a dual Canadian-U.S. citizen “was an associate” of Sikh leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar, who was fatally shot outside of the Guru Nanak Sikh Gurdwara in Surrey in June.

The Attorney General says it’s alleged Nikhil Gupta was directed by an Indian government official — identified only as CC-1 — between May and June to hire someone to carry out the murder of Pannun in the U.S. It notes that didn’t happen because the contracted killer was actually an undercover U.S. agent.


Someone To Talk To

Now available in Canada. 24/7 help is there when you just need someone to talk to.

In a massive step towards prioritizing the mental health and well-being of Canadians, the government has officially launched a nationwide, three-digit suicide crisis helpline.

Years in the making, Canadians from coast-to-coast can now call or text 988 when in crisis, or when someone knows a person is in crisis and needs assistance.

They will be connected with a trained responder, with most calls or texts being answered by someone in the same region, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, all free of charge.

Beach Cam Conundrum

Being a lifelong beach bum I follow several weather forecasting websites (Environment Canada and the Weather Network) for our area plus the Tide Forecast that is regularly carried in the White Rock Sun during the summer months.  That gives you the weather, current conditions plus tide height but sometimes what you really want is a bird's eye view of the beach.  For this, online cameras or cams for short are indispensable.  By far, the best one here is the City of White Rock's pier cam available online at .  It shows Memorial Park, Canada's longest pier, the wind on a Canadian flag plus water and wave height.

Video of the Day


If you’ve ever wondered what your cat or dog thinks about the holidays this funny video will give you a few ideas. If you listen closely there are some words of wisdom being said. I really like “All the ornaments of your life can be small but if you can step back and look at them all together they can be quite dazzling.”
