We Have A Winner

GORDON HOGG has earned the honour of representing White Rock/South Surrey in Ottawa when the House of commons returns in the New Year.

Liberal Hogg 14,369 votes

Conservative Findlay’s 12,752

NDP Jonathan Silveira 1, 478 votes

Green Party’s Larry Colero 1,247 votes

Christian Heritage Party’s Rod Taylor 238 votes

Libertarian Donald Wilson 89 votes

Progressive Canadian Party candidate Michael Huenefeld 86 votes

As predicted the race between the Liberals and the Conservative party was very close. HOGG led from the very beginning all be it with at times a very small margin of votes. KEYY LYNNE FINDLAY conceded defeat shortly before 9:30 p.m.

HOGG arrived with his wife LAVERNE to Boston Pizza to join his supporters and members of Team GORDIE. As HOGG arrived the packed audience began a chant of GORDIE GORDIE GORDIE!

HOGG made his way through the throng and delivered a humbling heartfelt speech to all in attendance.

It is interesting to note the Liberals won three of the four by elections that were being held last night across Canada.

Dozens of Delta Farm Workers Rushed To Hospital

More than 40 people have been transported to hospital last evening after carbon monoxide exposure at a greenhouse farm in Delta.

The incident took place at Windset Farms on 41 B St., where a number of people became ill while pressure washing inside a nursery, according to reports. Police believe poor ventilation may have caused a carbon monoxide build-up. When inhaled, carbon monoxide can interfere with the blood’s ability to absorb and transport oxygen.

All but one of the 42 rushed to the hospital have now been released. WORKSAFE BC will be investigating the matter today.

Good Idea

It’s one of the most magical free things to do in Metro Vancouver this winter: a breathtaking stroll around a beautiful lake that is illuminated with hundreds of thousands of twinkling lights.

Indeed, Coquitlam’s outdoor winter display, called Lights at Lafarge, is a festive wonderland in Town Centre Park.

Now, a lakeside table near the popular display is taking Instagram by storm. The gorgeous table looks like it was pulled straight out of a frosted fairytale, as it sparkles alongside the moonlit lake. What’s more, there’s even an enchanted looking chandelier hanging overhead.

Could White Rock be inspired by our neighbours in Coquitlam?

If you have been down to West Beach in White Rock you will notice there are extra Christmas lights this year. It wouldn't take too much for White Rock to create a Christmas display similar to Coquitlam's.

Our waterfront could use it. The cold dark days of winter have severely impacted the restaurants which for the most part on barely hanging on.


The city of Coquitlam has created a showcase of Christmas lights.

Enjoy the magic of the Lower Mainland's largest free outdoor lights display at Lafarge Lake in Town Centre Park.

The lights will remain on until Jan. 21, 2018 giving plenty of time to ​walk around the lake and enjoy the multiple themed zones.​

Enhance your Winter Lights Display experience by taking in the free activities. Join the Park Spark team for pop-up activities including light making workshops, scavenger hunts and special themed nights.

Visit coquitlam.ca/parkspark for more information.

Free parking is available in Town Centre Park off Trevor Wingrove Way. The lights display is also just steps from Lafarge Lake-Douglas SkyTrain Station.

Joke Of The Day

A family of skunks went for their morning walk. They came to a fork in the road.

The daddy skunk said, "My instinct tells me to take the left fork."

The momma skunk said, "My instinct tells me to take the right fork."

The baby skunk pondered a moment and said, "My end stinks too but I still don't know which road to take!"

Fat burning fats?

Fat. We tend to hate that word when it relates to our bodies. However, a certain type of fat (brown fat) is getting lots of admirable attention lately.
