Rash of B&Es hits town Aldergrove Star

A spike in residential break and enters in the Aldergrove area on the Canada Day weekend has prompted a warning from Langley RCMP. Twelve family residences and one detached garage were hit by thieves during the daytime hours between June 27 and July 3. Many of these properties are larger lots, located in rural areas with few neighbours. In four of these incidents, entry was

gained into residences by kicking in the door. Entry was gained through open or unlocked windows and patio doors in the others. The suspects took numerous items and ransacked many of the residences. The thieves were mainly focused on taking electronics: TVs, both flat screen and older models, laptops, ipods, video cameras and gaming systems. Also stolen were several pieces of fine and costume jewelry, a mountain bike, snowboard,

coins and cigarettes. All of these break and enters took place during daytime hours while residents were out of the home, possibly at work or out enjoying the long weekend. Members of the RCMP’s Lower Mainland Integrated Forensic Identification Section (Ident) were called in to assist general duty members with gathering evidence from these crime scenes. SEE: Page 3

Police have charged a 29-year-old Abbotsford man with stealing some rare pigeons, and they believe he may be part of a ring responsible for numerous livestock and fowl thefts in the Fraser Valley. William James Balice was arrested on Canada Day after 365 birds, mostly pigeons, were reported stolen June 28 from a farm in the 2700-block of Lefeuvre Road. He has been charged with possession of stolen property and break and enter. Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald said the stolen purebred pigeons are highly sought-after by the bird-show community and sell for $60 to $100 per bird. The breeds taken included the American Roller, the Muffed Tumbler, the West of England Tumbler and Helmet. Balice was allegedly found in possession of some of the birds, and had listed them for sale on craigslist. MacDonald said the rarity of the pigeons made them easy to identify, but tracking down the other missing animals has been more difficult. Abbotsford Police created a position, called LEO (livestock enforcement officer), to deal specifically with the thefts of chickens, pigeons, ducks, goats and sheep. The incidents began last fall. Two Abbotsford sites were hit in November and February, resulting in SUBMITTED PHOTO the heist of 5,300 pigeons that are A helmet pigeon is among the sold as meat — known as squab – breeds recently stolen from a for $4 to $10 each. farm in West Abbotsford. Also this year, close to 20 Boer goats were taken from a property on Downes Road, and hundreds of chickens were stolen from two Abbotsford farms at the end of May. In Langley, the thefts included 22 lambs, six ducks and 65 chickens from three properties in March. One of those farms was also targeted in December, when 17 ducks were taken. A farm in Chilliwack was hit in November, when seven pregnant goats were stolen. Six of them were later located on a property in Langley. At the time, Chilliwack RCMP estimated that 60 goats had been swiped from the community. Balice next appears in Abbotsford provincial court on Friday on the charges related to the pigeon theft. He is also scheduled to plead guilty that day to a previous charge, dated March 18, of driving while prohibited. Balice is also among a group of five charged with break and enter, theft and trespassing in Maple Ridge on March 29, and is next due in Port Coquitlam provincial court on July 13. Anyone with information about the livestock and fowl thefts is asked to call the Abbotsford Police Department at 604-859-5225.

Pro hockey trio visit hometown fans By KURT LANGMANN Aldergrove Star

The Stanley Cup hockey fever may be over for another year as summer activities finally arrive, but local NHL hockey fans can still get their fix this weekend when three up-and-coming professional players visit fans at their Aldergrove hometown. NHL pros Cameron Abney, Dean Arsene and Brad Thiessen all grew up in the Aldergrove area and still have family living here. The three men will be at Aldergrove Arena this Saturday, July 16 from noon to 2 p.m., to meet their hometown fans and old friends. It’s a fund-raiser for the Aldergrove Food Bank and is cohosted by the Aldergrove Kodiaks Junior B Hockey team and TNT Hockey Performance. “Everyone who brings a nonperishable food donation of $10 or more will get autographs and photos from the players,” said Mike

Thompson, a co-owner of TNT along with Tyler Jackson. “It’s a tough time of year for the food banks and we wanted to help them out with this event.” Abney, 19, is a bruising winger who was drafted by the Edmonton Oilers last year on a two-way contract. Arsene, 30, is a defenceman who has just signed a two-way contract with the Phoenix Coyotes. Thiessen, 25, is a goalie on a two-way contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Thiessen had an outstanding season last year with the Penguins’ AHL affiliate and was named to the AHL All Star team. TNT’s Jackson has been training Thiessen since his Junior B Hockey days eight years ago, and says that while Thiessen “has always been under the radar” his prowess as a goalie is a result of “all hard work. I’ve never seen anyone work as hard as Brad. He’s a real determined guy.”

Rick Harkins, owner and general manager of the Aldergrove Kodiaks, will also be at Aldergrove Arena this Saturday, along with some of the next season’s players, including captain Jordan Pughe. “We will be selling season tickets at a reduced rate, and all Aldergrove Minor Hockey kids can attend Kodiaks season games free if accompanied by an adult,” said Harkins. Thompson will also have tickets available for the annual TNT charity golf tournament, August 4 at Surrey’s Northview, as well as the charity hockey game at Langley’s Sportsplex on the next night. All proceeds go to the B.C. Cancer Parents Association, a registered charity based in Cloverdale, and Thompson is aiming to raise at least $10,000 that weekend for the cause. For information or registration for either of these special events, call Thompson at 604-723-8198 or Jackson at 604-836-2448.

FROM FRONT:

Langley RCMP media relations spokesperson Cst. Jillian Roberts issued the following advice to homeowners. Avoid becoming a target of these thieves by taking simple precautions when leaving your residence unoccupied: • Lock all doors and windows every time you leave, even if you are stepping out just for a few minutes. • Use a deadbolt with a striker plate using 3” screws into framing • Lock horizontal sliding windows and doors with a rod or dowelling • Leave the radio on • Secure glass or patio doors with anti-lift devices to prevent door from being lifted off its track • Improve visibility by trimming back tall hedges that block windows visible by neighbours or the street • Mark your belongings for identification and record serial numbers of electronics • Keep valuables in a safe or safety deposit box • Install an alarm system and have it monitored locally, not abroad • Secure window air conditioner or fans to prevent removal and easy access • Install motion lights If you do return home and find signs of forced entry, do not go inside. Call police from a neighbour’s phone or cell phone. Do not touch anything to prevent loss of possible evidence. If you are have security concerns for your property or are unsure if your residence is effectively prepared, a home security check can be booked or join Block Watch – a watchful neighbourhood is your best burglar alarm. To book a home security check or to find out how to become part of the Block Watch Team, contact the Langley RCMP Blockwatch coordinator at 604-5323213. Police are asking anyone with information that might assist to identify the suspect or suspects involved with these break and enters to please call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.

Coleman, aide injured in crash By NATASHA JONES Black Press

Rich Coleman and his constituency executive assistant Sheryl Strongitharm were injured in a car accident on July 4. Strongitharm was driving the MLA for Fort LangleyAldergrove to the airport on Mt. Lehman Road when she swerved to avoid an orange traffic post that was sitting in the road. The car caught the soft shoulder and as she tried to correct the steering, the car went out of control and hit a ditch. It slid on its side for approximately 100 feet. Both suffered extensive bruising but no broken bones. Coleman said that the deep sides of the ditch prevented the car from rollRich Coleman ing. The vehicle was totaled. Emergency responders pulled Strongitharm out through the back of the car, placed her on a back board and took her to hospital. She was released the same day. Coleman was suspended in such an awkward position that he could not open the passenger door. A man who was one of the first people on the scene wrenched open the passenger door, and another man helped pull the minister out. She suffered widespread bruising and injuries to her back and right leg, while Coleman suffered injuries to his neck, shoulder, lower back, chest and left knee. Both Coleman and Strongitharm were wearing their seat belts.

Pam Erikson Daylilies in full bloom at Garden Pam Erikson showed off her collection of flowers at the 10th annual open house at Erikson’s Daylily Gardens on Saturday. This year, the open house raised over $1,200 for C.A.R.E.S. Animal Rescue Shelter. “We are extremely grateful to all who contributed to our raffle table - including Domaine de Chaberton Winery, Fort Winery, JD Turkey Farm, Otter Co-op, Select Roses, VanDusen Botanical Garden, Krause Berry Farms, Tuscan Farms, Buds N Petals and members of the Aldergrove Daylily Society,” said Erikson. “While the big event is over and everyone did have a good time, the gardens were not at full bloom due to the late spring this year,” said Erikson. “Even though we had made the open house a week later, Mother Nature still messed with us. We are estimating that peak bloom will now begin around July 20. To that end, our opening days each week will change quite a bit. Please check this site (http://www.eriksonsdaylilygardens.com) or our message on the phone, 604-856-5758, for updated days each week.” The gardens are located at 24642 51 Ave. The Erikson family moved to the property in 1987 and it was a bare acre at that time - not the ideal ground for two gardeners, but the family loved

the area so they set about amending the gravel-based ground and bare landscape. It took two to three years to amend the soil to the point that it was plantable, and then every Sunday became ‘plant shopping day.’ Over the next few years the family established a good garden backbone of specimen trees and selected shrubs and perennials. As each year went by, and they collected more and more plants, the lawns started to disappear. By 1992, the gardens had matured to the point where the Eriksons opened for garden tours and offered a small variety of plants for sale. “By that time, we also saw the first blooms on our hybridizing efforts - it was like Christmas in July for us as each new bloom excited us more than the previous one. As each year has gone by, our collections have grown to include Tom’s favorite plants, hostas, and an array of other unusual perennials and specimen trees and shrubs,” said Pam. “We now have over 3,000 varieties of daylilies in the garden along with hundreds of hostas, euphorbias, irises, foxgloves, lilies and ferns - with an ongoing desire to keep acquiring new items. Tom has added arbors, a gazebo, a pond and many other little vignettes to the gardens to enhance a relaxed park-like feeling as you walk through.”

Green urged to step down Rick Green was accused of being “abrasive and disrespectful” by a man who claims he “strongly supported” his bid for the mayor’s chair in the 2008 civic election. Sukhi Dhami, who ran unsuccessful for a seat as a councillor, stood before Green on Monday afternoon, accusing the mayor of “inviting” the police investigation into his conduct as a result of his “governance methods and actions as mayor.” Dhami said he worked hard on Green’s campaign “and encouraged my relatives and friends to do the same. I now deeply regret ever helping Rick Green be elected as mayor.” Dhami pressed Green to step aside while a special prosecutor appointed by the government reviews the RCMP investigation into Green’s conduct. “Mayor Green, this is not about you. You recently stated that you will not be intimidated into resign-

ing. Our delegation is not meant to intimidate, but to point out the simple facts,” Dhami said. These include the mayor’s “abrasive and disrespectful” leadership style, Dhami said. “Although the taxpayers elected a council to work with you, you worked against them and routinely ignored the will of council,” Dhami said. “Council members have been relegated to a second-class status,” Dhami said, “The office of the mayor has gone from an occasional tie-breaking voter and peace broker to a “me” against them assault vehicle.” Dhami was joined by Joe Zaccaria who echoed demands for Green to step aside. Zaccaria said that since the 2008 election “a dark cloud has hung over the Township of Langley. This cloud has pitted neighbour against neighbour, caused people to call each other terrible names, heckle and disrespect others with opposing viewpoints, and ridicule profes-

sionals employed by the Township of Langley.” He said that council meetings “have become a three-ring circus, without a leader to uphold the rule of law or the decorum that once existed during public meetings.” He, too, asked Green to step down as mayor until the special prosecutor’s report is released. Green did not respond to either of the men who spoke at council’s afternoon meeting. He said later that he will not step down, and plans to run for office in November. “I’m looking forward to the upcoming campaign and will put my faith in their (voters’) hands.” He called the attacks on him “another example of an attempt at intimidation and bullying.” Zaccaria and Dhami are taking their anti-Green campaign back to Township Hall for a rally on Friday, July 15, at 1:30 p.m. Details of a “Green Button Campaign” will be announced at that time, Zaccaria said.

Feds help agri-processing sector Aldergrove Star

Langley MP Mark Warawa congratulated three Langley processing companies on improving their business with the combined support of more than $2 million from the federal government. These investments helped the three companies improve their processing lines, providing farmers with more opportunities to get their products to market. “The government of Canada is continuously working to provide farmers as well as the entire valuechain with new and innovative technologies that increase productivity and boost their bottom line,” said Warawa. “This funding enhances the sector’s competitiveness, helps companies increase production, creates

new jobs for local communities, and creates more demand for high quality Canadian agricultural products.” The AgriProcessing Initiative has provided support to Freybe Gourmet Foods, Made-Rite Meat Products, and Sugarplum Desserts. Freybe Gourmet Foods received a $1,900,000 repayable contribution to purchase and install new high pressure food processing equipment. Freybe Gourmet Foods specializes in the production of over 120 varieties of sausages, ham, and specialty deli meats. It employs more than 250 associates, serving customers across North America. Made-Rite Meat Products received a $376,770 repayable contribution to purchase and install a new machine to automate the pack-

aging of beef jerky. Made-Rite Meat Products is in the business of processing, packaging and selling beef jerky. Sugarplum Desserts received a $94,500 repayable contribution to purchase and install a specialized ingredient mixer for various flavoured cake icings/frostings and butter-creams. Sugarplum Desserts bakes cheesecake, layered cakes, and cookies for the retail and foodservice markets. These repayable contributions are delivered by the Agricultural Flexibility Fund through the AgriProcessing Initiative, a fiveyear, up to $50-million initiative designed to enhance the competitiveness of the food processing sector in Canada.

The provincial government won’t soften its 10-month-old roadside administrative penalties for impaired driving, citing a 50-per-cent drop in drunk driving deaths since the rules took effect. Nor will it embark on a public information campaign previously pledged to help revelers decide how much they can drink before they might exceed the lower bloodalcohol limit of 0.05 if caught behind the wheel. “Half the number of people have died on the roads as a result of drunk driving based on the statistics we see,��� Premier Christy Clark told reporters Monday. Preliminary numbers show 30 deaths in alcohol-related crashes in the first seven months of the new regulations, down from an average of 61 fatalities in the same October-to-April period of the previous five years. Police credit the new regulations – with the threat of stiff fines and car impoundments – for the improved driving safety record. Police can now impose an immediate penalty on any driver who blows in the “warn” range between 0.05 and 0.08. Instead of issuing a 24-hour suspension or a formal impaired charge, police can impose a 90-day driving ban, a $500 fine and impound the vehicle for 30 days, with the owner on the hook for the towing and storage charges. Former Public Safety Minister Rich Coleman had promised a review of the new rules late last year after the

bar and restaurant industry complained of lost business because patrons were drinking less. He had indicated that might lead to an appeal period where drivers caught by police could lodge challenges before the penalties are applied. But no such legislation was tabled this spring. B.C. Restaurant and Foodservice Association president Ian Tostenson said his members now accept that the rules are here to stay. “When the theme of Families First came through from the premier, it was pretty obvious that no one in their right mind was going to say families are important – and by the way, we’re going to loosen up on the impaired driving penalties,” he said. Business was down much more steeply in the immediate months after the change, he said. Now, he said, the worsthit businesses are down perhaps 10 to 12 per cent from before the change, possibly as patrons understand the rules and make alternate arrangements for transportation. He said it’s also difficult to say how much of the losses stem not from the drunk driv-

ing penalties but from consumers’ reluctance to spend due to the sluggish economy or the imposition of the harmonized sales tax. “I think we just have to adapt and find ways to make it work,” Tostenson said. “We wish it hadn’t happened. But it’s here and let’s make the best of it.” Attorney General Barry Penner is also counting on the policy change to help decongest B.C.’s crowded courts. The shift to police-imposed roadside penalties – dubbed by some defence lawyers as an effective decriminalization of impaired driving – means most of those incidents now no longer go into the court system. Penner previously called it a side benefit of the change that should help cut the backlog in the criminal courts. While those punished under the administrative system and not the courts pay a high price up front, they avoid possible court sanctions, including a criminal record, a possible one-year Canadawide driving as well as potential jail time. -Tom Fletcher is on holidays and returns next week.

Equestrians hope for a horse-friendly park By ANNE PATTERSON Black Press

Members of the equestrian community are being given a golden opportunity to participate in the formation of a master plan for Aldergrove Lake Park. This is the first time a management plan has been undertaken for Aldergrove Lake Park. “There is a lot of land banked, that is not currently in use, that will become part of a future vision for the entire 280-hectare parcel. We will be going to the horse community for more input on general and specific issues,” said Valoree Richmond, east area park planner for Metro Vancouver. Once a master park management plan is prepared, funds will be allocated to develop the plan. Valoree has owned a horse, and is quite familiar with some of the issues related to trail riding and multi-use trails. Two active B.C. equestrian groups are keen to take advantage of a chance to create a much-needed venue for their sport. One is the BC Carriage Club, and the other is the BC Miniature Horse Club, both of which have a lot of members from Langley. Shirley Bradley and Karen McGregor are members of both, and have been trying to get a foothold for carriage driving in Campbell Valley Park for years. They see a chance to participate in the management plan for Aldergrove Lake Park as a great step forward towards their goal. “We would love a place to practice for CDE’s (competitive driving events) and to drive on trails,” said Shirley. Both Shirley and Karen say the biggest potential challenge for drivers and trail riders face is the danger posed by off-leash dogs. Shirley referred to a series of accidents caused by the interaction of horses and dogs that were reported by riders in Island 22 in Chilliwack. She and Karen both want to make the point that some users groups do not mix safely on the same trail. “My horse isn’t OK with all dogs, and vice versa. I’ve tried telling dog owners who turn their dogs loose on the horse trails in Aldergrove Lake Park that my horse might kick a dog and cause serious injury. Sometimes the dog owners take offence. Riders and drivers need to feel safe on the trails,” said Karen. Karen has managed to get a permit from Metro Parks to drive her minis in the big field near the riding ring in Campbell Valley Park, but finds the rough, uneven ground hard to manage. “The trails in Aldergrove Lake Park are wonderful. We’d like an opportunity to drive on them. In Europe, they do it all the time,” said Karen. Park planner Valoree commented that it is generally accepted that off-leash dogs and horses are not compatible trail users. That’s where good planning comes in. Metro Parks is considering generating revenue from its park system by offering what Valoree terms “luxury” services like food concessions and dog washing stations. A campground in the park is also an idea under consideration. Horse riders and drivers can share their opinions on the Aldergrove Lake Park management plan online with Metro Parks at: http://www.metrovancouver.org/services/parks_lscr/AldergroveLakePlanning/Pages/default.aspx -Anne Patterson is a local freelance writer and horse enthusiast.

No apologies for hammer attack By DAN FERGUSON Black Press

Albert Jacob Jackman said he will serve his prison sentence for the 2009 sledgehammer attack that permanently disabled a Langley man with his “head held high.” The broad-shouldered 24-year-old spoke at his sentencing hearing before a B.C. Supreme Court judge in New Westminster on Wednesday. In June, Jackman pleaded guilty on one count of aggravated assault and one count of unlawful confinement in the attack that sent 29-year-old Tyler Willock to hospital with multiple fractures. Defence counsel Brian Coleman told the hearing that Jackman went after Willock because he was making jokes about the murder of Jackman’s friend, Kevin LeClair, a Surrey Red Scorpions associate gang member who was gunned down in a Langley strip mall. Jackman and LeClair were very close, almost like brothers, according to a written statement filed by LeClair’s father.

Jackman, who has a tattoo Crown prosecutor Catherine of LeClair, was enraged to hear Fedder called it a “brutal, prothat Willock had laughed about tracted, cold-blooded, vicious the murder, saying it meant assault on another young man.” he wouldn’t have to pay back She is seeking a 12-year jail $40,000 he’d borterm. rowed from the murColeman is sugdered man. gesting six. “He [Willock] Either way, disrespected his close Jackman will still be friend [LeClair] in jail once he comwhose death he pletes his assault [ Jackman] took very, sentence because he very hard,” Coleman is also serving a life said. sentence of 25 years “Whatever else without parole for Albert Jackman may the unrelated March Albert Jackman be, he has a strong 28, 2009 murder sense of loyalty.” of 24-year-old Kyle Jackman tied up Willock Barber of Aldergrove. in the bedroom of his Langley At the close of the Wednesday home, applied duct tape to his hearing, Justice Robert Crawford eyes and mouth and hit him 20 asked Jackman if he had anything times with a sledgehammer. to say.

Willock suffered multiple Jackman told the judge he fractures that required extensive came from a “wonderful family” surgery and months of rehab. where he was taught to protect He has not fully recovered his friends and not put them in from his injuries. harm’s way.

“Unfortunately, I did,” he said, an apparent reference to LeClair. He made no direct reference to Willock’s injuries, saying “I will continue to do my time with my head held high.” Jackman’s lawyer said his client always wanted to plead guilty to the hammer attack, but was convinced to wait until after his murder trial. Shortly after he was convicted of first-degree murder and received his automatic life sentence, Jackman pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated assault and one count of unlawful confinement in the Willock case. Jackman told police that the second man charged in the sledgehammer attack, Wesley Edward Kelemen, was simply a bystander who had nothing to do with it, his lawyer said. Kelemen, who earlier pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful confinement, was sentenced to time already served in jail since his arrest, one year and three months. The judge is scheduled to make his ruling on Jackman’s sentence July 20.

Water restrictions irk taxpayer Editor: I have to tell you that I am more than annoyed at the Stage 3 water restrictions in Aldergrove this year. At a time when we have had more than our share of rain and still have to deal with winter runoff from snow, I’m more than annoyed that it is necessary for the residents of Aldergrove, Gloucester and Salmon River Uplands to have to deal with water restrictions. If push comes to shove, I can live without watering my lawn, but when I spend hundreds of dollars on annuals and perennials and vegetables into my garden I find it even more unac-

ceptable that all I can do is water with a handheld container and not a soaker hose. When I see my neighbour washing his or her car or truck and I can’t water my garden you can bet it frosts my socks. When I see car washes operating you can bet it frosts my socks, and when I can’t fill a tub for my dogs to jump into after playing in the heat of the day you can bet that also frosts my socks. This is summer, when people are supposed to be able to enjoy the use of public swimming pools, backyard swimming pools and ponds. Keep in mind that the only real public access to a lake in Aldergrove has been recently demolished due to non-forward

thinking by the powers that be. Let us fill our backyard pools and let us use that water to water our plants and gardens; recycle the water in our backyards. It’s a one time fill with a few top ups, and we are using that water to look after our gardens, even after the restrictions end. Think about it. Does no one at the Township listen to the taxpayer or think of options for using the water that we do have available to us? Why do they insist on spoiling our ‘summer’ with these restrictions, again considering that we have had the wettest spring on record and are still waiting for the winter swell from snow melt. Debbie Atkinson, Aldergrove

Solution in a can Editor: One of the worst disasters that can happen to the owner of a scooter is to get a flat tire. It happened to me twice and it took quite a bit of research to find a solution. Each of the local scooter sellers presented the same solution. Leave it parked in a store where it could be picked up while the owner took a cab home. The total charges are about $70. The best solution is being sold at Lordco; it is called GUNK Puncture Seal and it only costs $16. It contains a solution and compressed air which repairs the flat and inflates the tire at the same time. You have to be careful though because it contains sufficient compressed air to inflate a motor car tire. L. O’Reilly, Aldergrove

It’s summertime at last and everything is so green and beautiful. We live in a great place: O Canada, we are proud of you. Things have quietened down at the OAP Hall. Carpet bowling is over until September, no more pot luck dinners until fall, but on Mondays at 1 p.m. cribbage is the game and on Saturday afternoons there is oldtime dancing and on Friday evenings the bridge club meets. There are fewer attending bridge so the club is considering changing the format to partnership bridge on July 15. Bridge is a great game and has been played at the OAP Hall for many years so to see it die out would be disheartening. Winners at the last session were Doug Johnston with the first prize score of 8350, Evelyn Swenssen was second with 7330 and Bill Smith had 6760.

Rugby women win all 3 Aldergrove Star

Aldergrove Secondary graduates Megan Hamm, Elyssa Phillipson, Randi Hunter and Sonya Foulds were part of a Womens National Rugby Championships, July 1-3 at UBC, winning all three of their games convincingly. The British Columbia Under-23 provincial team captured the Tier Two National Women’s League championship after a convincing 87-0 victory over New Brunswick on Sunday morning. B.C. went 3-0 during the competition, having previously defeated Ontario’s U23 team 49-12 and Saskatchewan by a score of 34-10. B.C.’s kicking prop Randi Hunter was again at the forefront of their attack, producing a game-high 22 points against New Brunswick through two tries and six conversions. Kayla Moleschi recorded her second hat trick of tries, having notched three in B.C.’s opener against

Ontario. Tries were also recorded by B.C. captain Jesse Olynyk, Abby Goodwin, Christie Auzins, Erin Grant, Sara Byers, Melissa Leblanc and Megan Banford. “We’re strong in the forward pack and in our backs. We hit the gaps and did a lot of off-loading and it worked to our advantage,” said Hunter after the game. “We worked really hard throughout the last few months to get here and we’ve just proved that we are the better team and we played our hearts out,” she added. “We knew going into [the tournament] that this was the year that we could get some of the best players at this age group together. It was quite a dream team for B.C.,” said B.C. captain Olynyk. Hamm and Hunter have been invited to play for the CIS University All-star Team, to play two games against the All American Collegiate All-Stars in Saranac Lake, New York, at the end of the month, July 28 and 31.

Heat’s top scorer Keith signs in Sweden By DAN KINVIG Black Press

As a member of the Abbotsford Heat last season, Aldergrove native Matt Keith was afforded the luxury of playing as close to home as possible. As of this fall, Keith could hardly be any further away. He signed a one-year contract last week with Orebro, a club in Sweden’s second division. The 28-year-old forward chuckles when the geographical irony is mentioned to him. “It’s funny – my buddies are wondering why I have to leave so early, since I have to go over there the first week of August,” he said. “But I’ve been around here for 18 months now, so it’s not so bad. “It’s just part of the business.

His strong season did not go unrecognized, as Thiessen won the Aldege ‘Baz’ Bastien Award as the AHL’s top goalie and he shared the Harry ‘Hap’ Holmes Memorial Award with fellow Penguins netminder John Curry, as the duo

The top seed in the playoffs, the Penguins were upset in the second round, despite Thiessen improving on his numbers — a 1.67 GAA and a .940 save percentage. Thiessen played his junior hockey in the BCHL with Penticton, Merritt and Prince George, and then spend three seasons at Northeastern University, where in his final year, he was a Hobey Baker finalist as the country’s top collegiate player. Thiessen signed a free agent deal with the Penguins in 2009.

On the long weekend, Junior Men’s Baseball teams from the lower mainland met at Aldergrove Athletic Park for the third annual Devon Sutton-Havard Memorial Baseball Tournament. The weather was beautiful and the fans supported their Aldergrove Junior Men’s team as they faced tough competition. They were treated to excellent ball. In the end, the Newton Beavers succeeded in winning for their second in three years. The hometown men are already thinking about next year, hoping to secure their second win at the fourth annual event. The tournament is held to not only enjoy baseball, but to honour one of our young men, Devon, who loved ball and all that went with it and who passed away from cancer three years ago. It is also an opportunity to raise money for the B.C. Cancer Foundation so they may continue to search for a cure for cancer. The organizers are grateful to the teams, the sponsors, including local supporters: Clearview Greenhouses, Esquires, Brian Hunter, Kodiaks, Milseans, Poppy Golf Estates, and Save-On Foods, as well as other generous organizations and individuals, including Abbotsford Heat, Danielle Mohr and her campaign “Baked For the Cure,” B.C. Lions, Finning, Powerzone, Powerzone, Prostock and Willow Acres. It was also the introduction of a children’s book by Vera Sutton called “Good Night Devon” and its proceeds are also donated to the B.C. Cancer Foundation. In total, approximately $3,000 was raised for this worthy cause. Aldergrove has once more shown its generosity and compassion.

Canada. “We are excited to work with the CJHL and the Township of Langley on this year’s World Junior A Challenge and continue the growth of the event.” “We are extremely excited to be bringing a world-class hockey tournament to the Township of Langley and the Langley Events Centre,” said Jared Harman, co-chair of the 2011 World Junior A Challenge host committee. “This is a tremendous opportunity for hockey fans in our community to watch Team Canada compete for gold in their own backyard.” In addition to hosting the 2011 World Junior A Challenge, Langley and the surrounding area will host the Canada West and Canada East selection and training camps, as well as pre-tournament games in the days prior to the tournament. For the first time, the CJHL Prospects Event will be held in conjunction with the World Junior A Challenge. The newly-combined event will be a unique opportunity for CJHL stars to showcase their talent on an international stage and simultaneously provide CJHL prospects an unprecedented audience of scouts from across North America. The CJHL Prospects Event is a twogame total goal series between Team East and Team West that showcases the top 40 NHL draft-eligible players from Canada’s 10 Junior A leagues. Player selection is a joint initiative of the CJHL and NHL Central Scouting. For more information visit: www.HockeyCanada.ca/wjac

Hockey Canada, in partnership with the Canadian Junior Hockey League (CJHL), British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) and BC Hockey, announced that Langley will host the 2011 World Junior A Challenge from November 7-13, 2011. This is the second year in a row and third time in the six-year history of the tournament that it will be held in B.C. The 2011 World Junior A Challenge will follow the same format as previous years – two Canadian entries will be joined by four international teams, with two groups of three teams. The group winners will receive an automatic bye to the semifinals, while the second- and third-place teams will crossover for the quarter-finals. All 13 games of the 2011 World Junior A Challenge will take place at the Langley Events Centre, home of the BCHL’s Langley Rivermen. To celebrate the 50th anniversary season of the British Columbia Hockey League in 2011-12, 50 full-tournament ticket packages are now on sale to BCHL season ticket holders for just $89, an average of just $7 per game. Once those 50 packages have been sold, packages will be available to BCHL season ticket holders for $119. Ticket information for the general public will be released in late July. “Canada’s Junior A leagues continue to develop world-class players, and the 2011 World Junior A Challenge will be a terrific showcase for that talent,” said Bob Nicholson, president and CEO of Hockey
