Get On Board For Aldergrove

Aldergrove welcomed the Nov. 3 surprise visit by a trolley bus from Langford, and it made several trial runs about this community that day. From left are Aldergrove transit boosters Bruce Heslop, Annette McArthur, Dave Miller and Jody Henderson.

Town takes shine to commuter bus By KURT LANGMANN Aldergrove Star

Inspired by the example of Langford, people in the Aldergrove community are rallying around a proposal to start up a community trolley bus service here by this spring. Locals got a sneak preview of the proposed service Nov. 3 as Langford Mayor Stew Young sent over one of the Vancouver Island community’s trolleys for a day of test runs around Aldergrove. The ride-by-donation trolley service has been such a success in Langford that it became a yearround service in 2008, when it hit the 40,000-rider mark. Langford residents have come to rely on it

and the costs to the municipality have been minimal, Mayor Young says. “People are using it now to go back and forth to work. They’re using it for shopping, so it’s getting quite busy compared to what it was last year,” Young said in 2008. The trolleys were donated by the development community, which in turn promotes the proximity of the trolley routes to the Langford homes which are on the real estate and rental markets. The trolleys have also benefitted commercial and industrial businesses by bringing customers and employees to their doorsteps. For more than seven years, businesses in and around Aldergrove,

including Gloucester Industrial Estates, have lobbied Translink to improve the community’s public transit service. Businesses here contribute millions of dollars to TransLink funding but most of them see little in the way of transit service. There is transit bus service running east to Abbotsford and west to Vancouver, but this only serves the downtown core of Aldergrove. Those travelling north to Gloucester Industrial Estates or south to the border area have no transit options whatsoever. TransLink has committed to a study on proposed service extension of its #502 bus to Gloucester, but until this service is provided

the 8,000 workers at Gloucester require private vehicles to get to their jobs. This makes it difficult for some companies to attract employees and for this reason several of the companies have lent their support to the Aldergrove Transportation Initiatives Committee and a proposed privately-operated shuttle bus service. EV Logistics, for example, employs 700 at their warehouses and expect to hire 300 people in the coming year. For this reason the Jim Pattison-owned company has contributed $3,000 to the Transportation Initiatives Committee. EV Logistics also hosted the SEE: Page 2

In the years before her death, Margaret Redford had struggled with addiction, but the 47-year-old mother of two was “living peacefully” in Aldergrove at the time of her murder, her father said Monday (Nov. 7). “She was getting over it,” Ed Redford told Black Press outside Surrey Provincial Court following a brief appearance by the man accused of her murder.

Butorac was scheduled to begin a seven-day preliminary hearing of the evidence against him, but instead made a short appearance via a video link from prison where the hearing was reduced from seven to two-and-half days without explanation. The hearing is now set to begin Monday, Nov. 14. Redford, who has volunteered to work night shift at his place of employment, plans to attend every day of the hearing, mostly so his son and wife won’t have to. “I just want to get it over with,” he said. His daughter is survived by a young son and daughter, Redford added. “My grandson still isn’t over it,” he said.

NEWS

Aldergrove to launch shuttle bus service by spring FROM FRONT: Langford trolley bus on Nov. 3 during its one-day visit to Aldergrove, and about two dozen of their employees “were thrilled to bits” to take a ride on it, said Dave Miller, chair of the Transportation Initiatives Committee. “All of them are currently driving but said they would prefer to leave their cars at home with their spouses if this bus service was available,” said Miller. The bus arrived in Aldergrove at noon and Miller spent the day riding on it and showing it to prospective users in the community before it left for the ferry back to Vancouver Island at 6:30 p.m. “We got an outstanding response,” said Miller. “People were waving at us from the streets, we had to stop for people to take photographs and we gave several families a tour of the area.” The bus travelled around Gloucester and Aldergrove’s residential area several times, as well as a trip south to the U.S. border on 272 Street and along Zero Avenue to 248 Street and up to Otter Co-op and Fraser Highway before returning to Aldergrove.

“This is the happiest news I’ve heard in years!” said Jody Henderson of the Greater Vancouver Zoo. The zoo’s parking lot was the official welcoming spot of the visiting trolley on Thursday. “We have tried for more years than I care to remember to have some form of transit bring guests to our gates and staff to our jobs. Finally, it’s happening.” Bruce Heslop of the Aldergrove Business Association has been instrumental in lobbying Translink on behalf of his association’s businesses. “We know the need is there. There are jobs at Gloucester Estates and no way to get to them unless you own a car. The trolley will help people get jobs and help businesses get and retain employees. Our downtown businesses will gain shoppers and our residents in the outlying areas will have an easier way to shop locally. We’re absolutely thrilled.” Langford Mayor Stew Young said their service was an immediate hit when it was started up as an adjunct to the BC Transit buses serving Victoria and area four years ago. The trolley was donated by Langford businesses and developers and rides

Young says the trolleys have been a catalyst for Langford business growth by enabling residents to shop locally. Miller, a retired former CEO of Albion Ferries, says they are aiming to replicate this model in Aldergrove. “We’’re hoping for a snowball effect,” said Miller. “Kelly Knight at K-line Trucking in Gloucester has committed to up to $1,000 a year in free servicing for the (bio-diesel) trolley and he’s also canvassing busi-

nesses there for their support of this project. Freybe European Sausages has also come on board with a donation and support.” The committee is looking for a used trolley in Wisconsin and Las Vegas and expects the price tag to be in the area of $20,000. Miller says daily service would likely begin at 7 a.m. with a number of trips between the main Aldergrove bus stop and Gloucester, before making possible trips to Zero Avenue and Glen Valley-Fort Langley. “I welcome enquiries and input on route suggestions from anyone interested in supporting this,” said Miller. He said the public can call him at 604-856-0215 or email: miller.d@shaw.ca TRANSIT PROJECT OFFSHOOT OF TV SERIES SHOOT While filming a recent episode of the 10-part “Million Dollar Neighbourhood” TV series, participating families were challenged to make changes in the way they travel and commute. They struck up a Transportation Initiatives Committee which vowed to implement a local service that would continue long after the production leaves town.

Consult public about transit, TransLink told Black Press

Only weeks after Langley City agreed to pay $50,000 towards TransLink’s study for a transit exchange, Township council has agreed to contribute the same amount. But Councillor Charlie Fox told TransLink planning manager Jeff Busby that the public must be consulted. TransLink is proposing to prepare a Transit Exchange Concept for both the Willowbrook area and Langley City. Included is a plan for a bus exchange for the Willowbrook area. When the issue came before council on Oct. 17, council would not agree to Councillor Kim Richter’s suggestion to add Willoughby to the study. According to a report to council, TransLink has developed four concepts for the Langley area, favouring the one which has frequent service from the west to serve Willowbrook and terminate in downtown Langley City, Other elements of this option support frequent service from the north terminating in the City, and services from the south, east and northeast serving downtown Langley

City and terminating in Willowbrook. This scenario would require two exchanges. Buses serving Brookswood, Murrayville, Aldergrove and Fort Langley would stop at the downtown Langley City exchange, before going on to Willowbrook. Frequent service buses on 208 Street would terminate in downtown Langley City. A report to council stated that the study would be used to develop a concept and area plan for the Willowbrook Transit Exchange that would: • ensure all transit services can be accommodated, and roads which would provide safe and efficient access to the exchange; * create high quality passenger environments; * integrate sites within 500 metres of the exchange for neighbourhood redevelopment; and * use cycling and walking networks to connect transit exchanges with surrounding neighbourhoods. Fox was adamant that the study involve “serious public consultation,” and not, as he put it to Busby, “Here, folks, this is what we are going to do.”

BLIZZARD OF THE MONTH

TransLink will hold discussions with Township staff, Busby responded. “It’s the people riding the bus you need to consult with,” Fox said. The Township and City’s combined contribution of $100,000 accounts for one-third of the total cost of the study. If the money is not forthcoming, Busby said, there will be no study. “Ah, so you’ve got us over the barrel, just like the two cents a litre gas tax,” said Councillor Kim Richter. Things grew testy when Mayor Rick Green said he was shocked that TransLink would be asking the Township for more money when, as the Township has often complained, it does not receive the level of service for which it pays. “I find it totally objectionable,” Green told Busby. This remark prompted Councillor Steve Ferguson to admonish the mayor, telling Green to treat Busby “with a little dignity.” Green and Councillor Kim Richter opposed paying the $50,000. Busby said that TransLink hopes to complete the study by the end of 2012.

Families parked their cars in favour of walking, riding bicycles and car-pooling and got very creative with finding ways to get around town – and save money doing it. They were on a mission. On Saturday, October 15, they held a massive car sale followed by a 10 kilometre walkathon the following day to help raise seed funding for their project. In less than seven days, they initiated the Aldergrove Trolley Service. With advice and a visit from Langford Mayor Stew Young, the MDN Transportation Initiatives Committee invited a few members of Aldergrove’s business community to join them in their goal of mirroring the highly successful Langford trolley. Last week, following a meeting at EV Logistics in Gloucester, Mayor Young suggested that “in order for businesses and residents to support the trolley service, they should perhaps see an actual trolley” and offered to send one over. The MDN Transportation Initiatives Committee consists of chair Dave Miller, co-chair Bruce Heslop and communications coordinator Annette McArthur. See video at: www.aldergrovestar.com

‘Better transportation in Langley will cost’ Black Press

Like a broken record, Langley politicians have complained for years that residents are paying more for TransLink than they receive in transportation services. No one, apparently not even the politicians, questioned this belief. When Nathan Pachal, a member of South Langley On Trax and an advocate for light rail, filed a Freedom of Information request, he found that the reverse is true: Langley taxpayers are getting more than they pay for, for all forms of transportation available to them. “In 2010, TransLink actually contributed more to Langley in transportation (about $45 million more) than it took in,” Pachal said. The point of his research was “is to wake people up to the fact that TransLink isn’t screwing over Langley,” he said. He added: “At the end of the day, we are getting more from being in TransLink than if we went it alone. The reality is that if we want better transportation in Langley, it comes at a cost.” Data sent by TransLink to Pachal showed that the 502 bus service, which connects Aldergrove and Langley to the King George and Central SkyTrain stations in Surrey, SEE: Page 4

Sgt. Mike Novakowski Anti-gang message pays off for police

A charge of failing to remain at the scene of an accident has been dropped against Brent Parent, the 40-year-old Langley man on trial for allegedly running down and killing 21-year-old Silas O’Brien of Abbotsford on March 13, 2008. Crown prosecutor Donna Ballyk made the announcement as closing arguments in the road rage trial got underway Friday morning, Nov. 4, in a B.C. Supreme Court chamber in New Westminster. The prosecution, Ballyk said, “admits at the start that it has failed to prove [the charge] beyond a reasonable doubt.” The exact wording of the withdrawn criminal count refers to a person who “with intent to escape civil or criminal liability fails to stop the vehicle” at an accident scene. Defence lawyer Vincent Michaels suggested that the removal of what he described as a “hitand-run” charge amounts to an admission by the prosecution that his client did not deliberately run down O’Brien. Michaels argued that the fatal collision occurred when Parent returned to the scene of the collision in the 25800-block of 16 Avenue in Langley when it was an “unusually dark night with no ambi-

ent lighting” and that when the enraged young men from the truck that had landed in the ditch charged at Parent, he drove away without realizing he’d hit one of them. Four other charges against Parent remain, including criminal negligence causing death, dangerous driving causing death, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and failure to stop at an accident with a vehicle. The prosecution says that Parent became enraged while driving home with his brother late at night because he thought the truck O’Brien was riding in had deliberately flashed its high beams at him. Parent, according to the Crown, first deliberately drove his vehicle into the other truck and forced it off the road and into a ditch, then returned to the scene of the accident where he ran down O’Brien. Defence lawyer Michaels said the “fundamental” question is whether the prosecution has proved beyond a reasonable doubt that his client is guilty of the named offences. Michaels said the two O’Brien friends who were in the truck with him, Sam Dooley and Luke Stephen, were not reliable witnesses. He noted that while Dooley and Stephen claimed they did not swear

or make threats after their truck ended up in the ditch, two eyewitnesses who spoke to the three young men shortly before Parent returned to the crash scene said the opposite, that the young men were obviously upset and angry and using the “F-word” and were making threats against the driver of the other truck. Michaels said Dooley and Stephen have altered their testimony to throw as much blame as they can on his client “to minimize their fault and maximize Parent’s responsibility.” Michaels said that while his client acted in a “hotheaded and immature way” by deliberately tapping his brakes to obstruct them, the three young men contributed to the confrontation by charging at Parent’s pickup truck when he returned to see if anyone had been hurt. Michaels said the two young men exaggerated the first, accidental collision into a deliberate one and inflated Parent turning his truck toward them to illuminate the scene with his headlights into a deliberate swerve at them to make events “larger than life .... as inculpatory and inflammatory as possible.” The judge was expected to reserve his decision until a later date.

The anti-gang message delivered by Sgt. Mike Novakowski has been recognized by the province. Sgt. Novakowski is one of five police officers from B.C. who have been recognized with Solicitor General Community Safety and Crime Prevention Awards – and is one of three from the Abbotsford Police Department. After a series of gang-related homicides in 2008 and 2009, he developed and implemented programs to promote positive life choices to youth, their parents and the community. These campaigns included a series of high profile posters, videos, radio commercials and school presentations to thousands of Abbotsford students from elementary school right through to secondary school. Operation Tarnish, which included a series of posters about a criminal lifestyle, was part of Mike Novakowski’s award-winning effort. Novakowski also generated provincial anti-gang awareness through campaigns that involved speaking to more than 3,000 parents. He used a seized Hummer as a rolling

crime-prevention billboard. Novakowksi was honoured with the Kenneth M. Lemckert Community Policing Award for “exemplary leadership in the area of community policing.” Abbotsford Police Const. Davin Turner and Const. Mark Zawadsky worked together with the APD Youth Squad, and were honoured for their work in defusing a serious rivalry between two groups of youth. They implemented a conflict intervention strategy in 2009 that involved youth, family, friends, police, the Abbotsford Restorative Justice Action Association, the Assistant Superintendent of Schools, Crown counsel and Abbotsford Community Services to address the conflict. Over a period of many months, the intervention was successful in engaging the youth to focus on their educational goals, and put the conflict behind them. Const. Turner and Const. Zawadsky were honoured with the Wael T. Audi Youth Policing Award for their outstanding commitment to working with youth in their communities.

With the five community bus routes, which cost between $295,760 and $790,000 each, the total equals $16,213,343.These numbers, which do not include insurance or capital costs, are from 2010. During that year, City and Township residents paid TransLink $15,321,538 in property taxes and an estimated $16,000,000 in gas taxes. Those figures suggest that taxpayers are paying $15 million for service beyond the Langley border. Not so, Pachal said. In 2010, TransLink spent almost $2.3 million on the major road network in Langley “and cut a cheque for $90 million for the Golden Ears Bridge,” he said.

VICTORIA – A full three weeks after the Occupy Wall Street protest camp sprang up in New York City, a few stragglers announced they were almost ready to “Occupy Maple Ridge” and “Occupy Revelstoke.” Perhaps other pathetic protests are still being dreamed up around B.C. But most have already packed up, and in places such as Prince George, these anti-capitalist rallies never led to an illegal squat. Let’s be clear about our squats, the ones in Canada and particularly B.C. They are explicitly anti-capitalist and statist in their message, which is presumably why they were funded by government unions. Despite the free food, power and porta-potties, these squats quickly became filthy and dangerous as the chronic street drug population replaced the spoiled young drummers and hula-hoopers who camped out to curse corporations on their iPhones. And yes, squats are still illegal here, following a unanimous October decision of the B.C. Court of Appeal against David Arthur Johnston. This pretend-homeless guy’s antics are at the root of the latest squatter outbreak. Victoria and its courts caved in to Johnston and allowed camping on public property at night. But he demanded 24-hour squatting rights, because some supposedly

‘Occupy’ is just another squat

homeless people are supposedly insomniacs too. Turns out there were plenty of shelter beds on which to snooze away the day or night, and his vague claim of a constitutional right to camp on public property was summarily dismissed. I had a brief exchange with an Occupy Vancouver “organizer,” one Min Reyes, as she tried to rouse the reluctant radicals of Maple Ridge. Reyes defines herself in her Twitter profile as “Flirting with Anarchism while making love to Socialism,” which sums up B.C.’s occupy movement as well as anything. “My personal approach to the analysis of society relies on Marx’s historical materialism,” Reyes writes on her blog. After majoring in Marxism at SFU, she moved on to BCIT’s journalism program, but dropped out after a couple of weeks because her studies “compromised my personal values.” Turns out BCIT is all about “skills” to get a “job.” Bummer. A glimpse of these “values” was on display when a reporter from CKNW radio tried to cover a heroin overdose at Occupy Vancouver. She was shouted down and accused of shaping the news to benefit “Coke and McDonalds.” At Occupy Victoria, which I visited a few times before it descended into another needle park, signs warned against “chem trails,” smart meters and corporations. Campers were

urged to “nationalize finance, energy and food” industries. Five-year plan for tractor production, anyone? Nationalizing banks is also at the top of Occupy Vancouver’s long, pretentious list of demands. Why is this stale leftist ideology so pervasive? Here’s a hint. The union representing these kids’ teachers is demanding higher corporate taxes to pay for their typically self-serving, financially illiterate contract demands. Here in Victoria, as in Vancouver, the huge growth in shelter, food, clothing and transition housing service doesn’t impress the hardcore system users. Victoria’s mayor built his reputation with years of street outreach work, but he’s still targeted for the ugliest treatment, including vandalism at his family home. Victoria council even kowtowed by voting to “support” the squat next to city hall, where Johnston used to camp. Then they cut off the power and water, which had been commandeered rather than set up by city staff at taxpayers’ expense, as was the case in Vancouver. In B.C.’s most “progressive” cities, we’re getting used to encountering public areas fouled by vomit, feces and used needles.

It’s been my experience that if we want change in our communities it has to come from both the grassroots, the people who live in the community, and from the top, the policy makers – the politicians. The will and the energy to generate effective change, have to come from both ends – the bottom and the top. Aldergrove is in a position right now to make that happen. I had a call the other day from a lady called Joanne. Joanne is participating in the Million Dollar Neighbourhood project. She told me that although she’s always been interested in what’s going on in her community, she’s never taken an active role in making things happen. She’s now ready to take that next step. Joanne is not unique. I’ve been noticing a fresh wind blowing through Aldergrove, a new enthusiasm for community activities and a new community pride. The Aldergrove Festival Days attracted more exhibitors and visitors than I’ve seen for a long time. The Aldergrove Business Association is vibrant and active. Community clean-ups and community events of all kinds are happening on a regular basis. TALKIN’ ‘BOUT Just going through the Aldergrove Star for the last month, it’s chock-full of things that OUR TOWN can make us proud. Aldergrove Neighbour- Hattie Hogeterp hood Services, born in our little community 16 years ago to look after the needs of young families, has merged with Langley Family and Youth Services (FAYSS) and now serves families, children and youth across Langley. Beat the Streets, the new Langley youth homelessness initiative, is based in Aldergrove. Parkside Elementary School students thanked the community for a brand new playground. A Wall of Lanterns, almost 600 pumpkins carved by Aldergrove families, celebrated Halloween in Aldergrove. Aldergrove Lake Park hosted the Langley Fraser Valley Cross-country championship. Aldergrove and its people are the stars of the Millionaire Neighbourhood TV show. It seems to me we have a healthy grassroots movement going on here in our town. People are stepping in and stepping up to make changes, working hard to make this the vibrant community it can be. The upcoming election provides us with an opportunity to also address the other side of the equation – the top, the policy makers. We have a chance to vote for the people who will make the policy decisions that will positively impact our community. Aldergrove is one of the oldest communities in Langley, but it has “faded” in modern times. It often feels “forgotten” and neglected in favour of newer, growing communities. There is a sense that Aldergrove is consistently relegated to the end of the line when the “goodies” are handed out. The fact is that Aldergrove is small, and although improvements to infrastructure have been made, growth has been slow. At the same time the new growing communities have legitimate needs, more voices and sometimes more resources. They also have more voters. It might be easy to throw up our hands and say “Why bother?” I’ve heard that often enough. However, let me remind you that the grassroots in Aldergrove, the community, has a time-honoured tradition of doing for itself, of finding ways to make things happen. The community has always adhered to the old adage that “if there’s a will, there’s a way.” Part of finding that “way” today may be to take an active role in electing the people who will be the policy makers for the next three years. There may be fewer voters in our community, but the notoriously low voter turnout in municipal elections can work in our favour. If all eligible Aldergrove voters took the time to vote we would have a significant voice and a significant impact. I would never suggest that Township councillors or school trustees favour one community over another. They have a responsibility to all. However, we here in Aldergrove have every right to know how well the candidates know this particular community, how well they understand our needs and desires, and what they are willing to do to support the community. There are a lot of people running for Township Council and School Board and it will be hard to figure out who is the best choice, but it is worth our while to do exactly that. If the positive energy being generated at the grassroots of our community finds support at the top, we will go a long way to “becoming the best we can be.” Make it your business to find out where the candidates stand in regard to our community. Ask them questions. Find out how well they know Aldergrove, its people, its needs, and its desires. If they are an incumbent, ask what they have done for our community. Ask all candidates what they are prepared to do to help Aldergrove become the healthy, vibrant community we all know it can be. If you can’t come to an all candidates meeting, most candidates have a website with an email address and phone number.

There is little need to purchase additional land as this overpass will be built up almost totally on the existing road area. The foundations supporting the concrete block side walls of the overpass can be developed along the area outside the shoulders of the Bypass while the Bypass is open with no daytime traffic interruption. There is land on three corners to accumulate materials and construction equipment. With proper planning and good engineering this project will cost no more than the new Mufford plan. If crossing the tracks only, much less. The Bypass would be shut down

totally for less than three months. A public discussion to address this plan is needed before any work is done on the new Mufford plan. I welcome hearing from the engineers involved with this project. After spending millions to four lane Hwy. 10 east of Cloverdale and west of Langley, leaving this Bypass/rail crossing bottleneck to exist is ridiculous. If the Mufford plan goes ahead can you imagine the traffic mess when the signs light up informing a train is coming and every driver at once tries to get from the Bypass to the Mufford overpass. That idea was not thought out. John Winter, Langley

It’s not just one day a year for our veterans Editor: November 11th is only one day of the year. A small percentage of Canadians choose to serve our country by wearing a military uniform. The rest of us can thank them by insisting that the federal government supplies the necessary resources to support our veterans. That means accepting the costly responsibility of making medical and psychological

Editor: Please get out and vote. Get started by doing some homework to find out who the candidates are and why they are running for election in our community. It is important to vote because the futures of our communities are at stake and the people who are in office control how our tax dollars are spent. They also control the policies that are implemented and the ones that are not. They are our representatives to the provincial and federal government. The last municipal election saw just over 20 per cent of the people in Langley who were eligible to vote turn out and do so. Because they did vote, they were the 20 per cent who were represented. On election day this Nov. 19, vote, so that your wishes are not ignored. This time make your voice heard. If you don’t vote this time, it will be another three long years before you get another chance. Remember, it’s your right and your responsibility to vote! Lorraine Hubbs, Langley

Cops offer thanks Editor: On behalf of the Canadian Cancer Society, I would like to thank you for your coverage of this year’s Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley. With your support, the four B.C. Tours raised over $2,600,000. Your coverage has truly had a direct impact on the overall success of the Tours. Cops for Cancer donations allow the society to invest in pediatric cancer research, deliver information and operate support programs that

improve the lives of children with cancer, survivors and their families – like Camp Goodtimes, the acclaimed summer camp at Loon Lake in Maple Ridge. Donations are also used to provide financial aid for travel, accommodation and cancer drugs. The Canadian Cancer Society is the largest national charitable funder of pediatric cancer research. Cops for Cancer is the largest contributor to pediatric cancer research.

The society fights all cancers by working to eradicate cancer and improve the quality of life for people living with the disease. With your support, we know we can continue working to achieve our mission. For further information, visit our website at www.cancer.ca where you’ll find up-to-date information about cancer and recent cancer statistics.

Editor: The price of $51 million to build an overpass on the Bypass is trotted out to dissuade us from pursuing this avenue to a sensible traffic/train solution. An overpass over the railway tracks and Glover Road is the only solution that makes any kind of sense. The base is already there, the bypass, and is totally compacted. That eliminates one quarter of the cost. But if you want to go really cheap just cross over the tracks. This project is so right for the new Styrene foam and concrete block construction method as used on the 200 street and Highway 1 project.

Tim Chapman took the challenge from Aldergrove Safeway co-workers and customers and dyed his blond ‘afro’ pink for the Breast Cancer cause. Chapman was originally going to have his afro shaved but everyone egged him on to dye it pink first and then urged him to keep it long for a week. It all paid off as Safeway exceeded their fundraising goal by several thousand dollars, for the $11,215 total. Chapman, who graduated from Rick Hansen Secondary and is in his first year of humanities studies at UFV, has been getting a lot of ribbing for his hairdo but says it was all worth it.

The silence will sweep across Canada like a wave as the clock strikes 11am in each time zone. There are also three local cenotaphs that will have organized services.

In Flanders Fields In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields. by Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae

Remembrance Day: We must remember. If we do not, the sacrifices of those hundreds of thousands of Canadian lives will be meaningless. They died for us, for our homes, for our families, and our friends. They gave of themselves for a collection of traditions Canadians cherish, and a future we all believed in. They died for Canada. The meaning of their sacrifice and their valor rests with our collective national consciousness.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2011 | THE ALDERGROVE STAR | 11

Remembrance Day in Canada is a day to commemorate members of the armed forces. Remembrance Day is observed each year on November 11 because that marks the official end of World War I in 1918. On that day, the Germans officially signed the armistice, an agreement that officially put an end to the fighting in WWI. That’s one reason why Remembrance Day is often referred to as Armistice Day. Though the day has a significant connection to World War I, it also honors the men and women who fought for Canada

in World War II, the Korean War and those who continue to serve in the military. Over the years, more than 1.5 million Canadians have fought for their country and to defend the rights and freedoms of non-Canadians as well. Among the Remembrance Day traditions is the wearing of poppies, which are worn as the symbol of remembrance and a reminder of the blood-red flower that grows on the former battlefields of France and Belgium.

Why do we wear a poppy in remembrance of our veterans? The poppy became a beloved and honoured symbol at the beginning of the 20th century and, even now, is worn proudly on the left lapel in memory of our war veterans. This is why, on November 11 — Remembrance Day — we honour the courage of those who gave their lives in wartime, sacrificing themselves for their country and for peace, by wearing this bright red flower close to the heart. The poppy that flowered on soldiers’ graves During the Napoleonic wars at the beginning of the 19th century, these mysterious, blood-red flowers were seen growing on soldiers’ graves once the battlefield was deserted. Then they disappeared as mysteriously as they came. More than 100 years passed and, after the Great War,

they flowered anew around the graves in Flanders, France. After various tests, it was discovered that the soil in this area was rich in limestone from buildings destroyed during the First World War, creating favourable conditions for the poppies to flower. Once the war was over the limestone dust was absorbed and the poppies disappeared. Symbol of life and of hope The poppy campaign begins on the last Friday in October and continues until November 11. With the funds raised, the Royal Canadian Legion is able to give financial help to veterans of the Canadian Armed Forces who are in need and can subsidize healthcare establishments, research, the purchase of medical equipment and homecare services.

From generation to generation may we always remember those who served and those who continue to serve.

On November 11, especially, but also throughout the year, we have the opportunity to remember the efforts of these special Canadians. In remembering, we pay homage to those who respond to their country’s needs. On November 11, we pause for two minutes of silent tribute, and we attend commemorative ceremonies in memory of our war dead. Following the First World War a French woman, Madame E. Guérin, suggested to British Field-Marshall Earl Haig that women and children in devastated areas of France could produce poppies for sale to support wounded Veterans. The first of these poppies were distributed in Canada in November of 1921, and the tradition has continued ever since, both here and in many parts of the world. Poppies are worn as the symbol of remembrance, a reminder of the blood-red flower that still grows on the

former battlefields of France and Belgium. During the terrible bloodshed of the second Battle of Ypres in the spring of 1915, Lieutenant-Colonel

At the 11th hour, on the 11th day, of the 11th month, we will remember. John McCrae, a doctor serving with the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps, wrote of these flowers which lived on among the graves of dead soldiers (see next page) The two minutes of silence provide another significant way of remembering wartime while thinking of peace. Two minutes are scarcely enough time for thought and reflection. As we pause and bow

our heads, we remember those brave men and women who courageously volunteered for the cause of freedom and peace. For those who lived through these wars, remembering means thinking of comrades. It evokes memories of men and women who never returned home. Those born after the wars might picture the youthful soldiers who eagerly joined up from high schools, businesses and farms across the country, only to meet death while fighting against the enemy. They may imagine the anguish of a man leaving a new wife, a young family, an elderly mother. The important thing for all of us to remember is that they fought to preserve a way of life, Canadian values, and the freedom we enjoy today and often take for granted. Remember that the silence is to honour their sacrifice and memory. ~ Veterans Affairs Canada

7 straight for Kodiaks Aldergrove Star

HARRY HUNT PHOTO

Kodiaks’ captain Jordan Pughe buries another puck in Mission Icebreakers’ net in 7-2 win at Aldergrove Arena, Nov. 2.

The Aldergrove Kodiaks made it seven straight victories thanks to a 3-2 overtime win over the North Vancouver Wolf Pack. Brandon Potomak notched the winner on an overtime power play on Saturday at the Harry Jerome Recreation Centre. The Wolf Pack forced overtime after scoring twice in a three-minute span in the third period. Aldergrove had led 2-0 with first period goals from Potomak and Ryan Procyshyn. Mark Menicucci stopped 26 shots for the victory. The Kodiaks also won 7-2 last Wednesday over the Mission Icebreakers with Thomas Hardy (two goals, one assist), Jordan Pughe (one goal, two assists) and Potomak (three assists) leading the way with a combined nine points. Menicucci was also in goal for that victory, stopping 30 shots. The Kodiaks (10-4-0-0) will go for their eighth straight win Nov. 8 when

they visit the Delta Ice Hawks (11-3-10) at the Ladner Leisure Centre. They host the Richmond Sockeyes (14-0-0-0) on Nov. 9, at the Aldergrove Arena (see www.aldergrovestar.com for update). WIN AT HOME OVER MISSION The Aldergrove Kodiaks stretched their winning streak to six games after thumping the Mission Icebreakers 7-2. The junior B hockey club now has a share of top spot in the PIJHL’s Harold Brittain Conference with 18 points. The Kodiaks peppered the Mission goal with 57 shots on Wednesday night at the Aldergrove Arena and had six different goal scorers. Mark Menicucci stopped 30 shots for the victory. The offence was led by three-point nights from Thomas Hardy (two goals, one assist), Jordan Pughe (one goal, two assists) and Brandon Potomak (three assists). Alex Feighan, Matthew Luongo, Colton Precourt and Coleman Foisy had a goal apiece. A pair of Langley players, Adam Callegari and Kenny Prato, scored for Mission.

Basketball championships coming to Langley By GARY AHUJA Black Press

Another major provincial championship is on its way to Langley. The B.C. AAA senior girls basketball championships are on their way to the Langley Events Centre beginning in March 2013. “This tournament has become the highest profile high school girls sporting event in Western Canada and the move to the Langley Events Centre will only help this continue to grow into an even bigger event for the benefit of our student athletes, coaches, officials and fans,� said Brett Westcott, president of the B.C. Secondary School Girls Basketball Association. “We think this move will reinvigorate our event for years to come.� The tournament has been held at North Vancouver’s Capilano University for the past 18 years.

Boaz Joseph photo/Black Press

Brookswood Bobcats’ Sydney Schepikoff fends off Breanne Feere of the Mt. Baker Wild during the 2011 B.C.high school AAA senior girls basketball championships at Capilano University. A five-year agreement has been reached to hold the event at the

LEC, with an option to extend the agreement. This is just the latest tournament to set up shop in Langley. Last March saw the AAA senior boys’ championships begin play at the LEC as part of a five-year agreement. This March, the junior girls’ championships will also be contested in Langley. “We are honoured to be selected to host this event and i think this decision speaks to the success of basketball in our community and how well this facility has been received during other provincial events held at the LEC since it opened,� said LEC director of business development, Jared Harman. “We want to host the best in sport at the LEC, and hosting the best in B.C. high school girls basketball is another example of this commitment here in Langley.�

Clash 12 the best yet

Smell gas?

Aldergrove Star

The tag line “best of the best� turned out to have a double meaning at the Clash @ The Cascades’ 12th edition, Friday. It was in reference to the double main event and the BC Light Heavyweight title fight between Ty MacDougall from Kamloops and Langley’s City Boxing prospect Dan Csaszar. But the sellout crowd of 400-plus and the nine fights made this edition of “Clash� the best to date.

Get out, then call: FortisBC’s 24-hour Emergency Line at 1-800-663-9911, or 911. Natural gas is used safely in homes across B.C. everyday.

The public is invited to participate in the creation of the Aldergrove Lake Regional Park Management Plan. The management plan will set up a policy framework that helps to express a common understanding of the park’s future, identify opportunities and contraints for various park uses, make management intentions transparent, and the decisions of staff and management accountable, said park planner Jeff Fitzpatrick. Aldergrove Lake Regional Park is located in the southeast corner of Langley, straddling the Abbotsford border to Lefeuvre Road, and hugging the U.S. border to the south along 0 Avenue. This 280 hectare park welcomes around 350,000 visitors a year,

who come to walk, jog, cycle, ride horseback, view wildlife, enjoy nature, or let their dog romp in the off-leash area. A working group session will be held Monday, Nov. 21, 6 to 8 p.m. in Aldergrove. If you would like to participate, please phone or e-mail your interest by November 11 (call 604-530-4983, or e-mail Jeffrey. fitzpatrick@metrovancouver.org ).
