Canucks Surprise Kids at Robson Square

Canucks from the 1994 Stanley Cup game, as well as current centre Mike Santorelli, surprised Strawberry Hill Elementary School students who were skating at Robson Square during a field trip on Tuesday afternoon.

Antique stores closing their doors on the past

Some people live in the past but Frederick Sutherland has made a career of it. The owner of Cloverdale Antiques & Collectables fondly remembers a time when Cloverdale was home to 14 antique stores, but in recent years that number has dwindled and now just a handful remain in Surrey as online shopping takes hold in the minds of Canadians. He also blames foreign made, modern and disposable styles for the shutting of antique store doors, not just in Surrey but around the globe. “All over the world it’s happening, because China is buying antiques from all over the...
