‘Stupid and childish’: driver testifies By DAN FERGUSON Black Press

Sean Sayers, 5, tries his hand at “milking” at the Mount Lehman Country Fair on Saturday. Fred Phelps, a farming oldtimer in the community now in his 90s, held the province’s hand milking record for many years throughout the 1950s to the ‘80s. The fair offered a full day of rural fun for families. The 26th annual event, which took place at Mt. Lehman elementary school and community hall, featured games, crafts, an art show, pet parade and even a historic cemetery tour in this pioneer community.

Charges stayed against accused meth makers By VIKKI HOPES Black Press

Charges have been stayed against two men accused of making meth in West Abbotsford last year. Francisco Aguilar Ochoa, 39, a1nd Oscar Guerreo Perez, 38, had each been charged with production of a controlled substance, break and enter, and two counts of transporting ephedrine, a stimulant used in the production of metham-

phetamine. The charges were stayed Monday in B.C. Supreme Court in Chilliwack. Abbotsford Police were called to a large rural property in the 1800 to 1900 block of Ross Road in February 2010 after the caretaker reported seeing two men in an outbuilding, using lights and doing something with pills and a blender. Police arrived to find two men, who spoke little English, making a powder out

of the pills, later found to be ephedrine. Other ingredients were found on site, but the men had not yet developed a fullblown lab, police said at the time. Further investigation revealed the men were not Canadians and appeared to have illegally entered the country. They were placed in custody with immigration authorities. Ochoa and Perez had been scheduled to go to trial this week.

For the first five days of his trial, Brent Parent maintained an impassive, guarded demeanour as he heard the evidence against him. That changed Monday when he took the stand in his own defence and gave his account of the events of March 13, 2008 in Langley which led to the death of 21-year-old Abbotsford resident Silas O’Brien and his trial on multiple road rage-related criminal charges. Parent, a Langley resident, testified that he did collide with the truck O’Brien and two friends were using to drive to Vancouver International airport for a holiday trip, but he did not know he’d run over and killed O’Brien until the next day. When Parent’s lawyer, Vincent Michaels, asked his client how he felt at hearing the news, Parent, who had testified in a calm, clear voice up till then, was unable to speak for a moment. “Sorry,” the 42-year-old said, removing his eyeglasses and dabbing at his eyes with a tissue. “I felt sick,” he said. “I felt sick to my stomach.” According to Parent, he was driving his Ford F350 diesel pickup quad cab heading home with his brother after a night out on 16 Avenue near 264 Street, when he was overtaken by another, fastmoving truck, a Chevy Silverado that flashed its high beams at him.” “The high beams came on and stayed on,” he said. Parent said he tapped his brakes to get the other vehicle to back off, and when it tried to go around him and pass, he accelerated. He heard a “rubbing noise” and saw the other truck go into the ditch. Parent called his behaviour “stupid and childish.” Parent denied deliberately turning into the other truck to force it off the road. He said he took the long way back to the scene of the accident to give himself and the people in the other truck time to cool off. “I was kind of in shock,” he said. “I figured that somebody would be not happy.” Parent claimed as he approached the overturned truck and slowed down with his doors locked and windows closed, he could see three men by the side of the road, waving their arms and shouting. “I could hear some yelling and it wasn’t pretty,” he said. “I think they were swearing and stuff.” It appeared to him that two of the men were preparing to attack his truck, either kicking it or throwing something “that looked like a rock” at it.

Hot Dogging It For Terry Fox

NEWS

‘Blame and shame’ politics must stop, says Froese By KURT LANGMANN Aldergrove Star

Jack Froese says the past “three years of blame and shame politics” of Township mayor Rick Green have motivated him to enter the election race. Froese, a retired farmer and policeman, says he would bring “real business experience” and “effective communication skills” to the mayor’s office. Speaking to a large crowd of supporters at the family’s JD Turkey Farms customer appreciation day on Otter Road on Saturday afternoon, Froese stressed the importance of independent thinking among councillors. Several councillors HARRY HUNT PHOTO incumbent One-year-old Colton Froese enjoys a hot dog at JD Farms’ fourth annual Fall Festival on were there, including Kim Saturday.

would “welcome the city back but the city is not interested. We don’t want the city’s debt and they don’t want the township’s taxes.” Froese cited the example of his master of ceremonies, Gary Johnson, who spearheaded the construction of the Gateway of Hope shelter for the Salvation Army. “Gary doesn’t give up. For years he shared his dream. Then he met with leaders — MLA Mary Polak, mayors Peter Fassbender and Kurt Alberts, MLA Rich Coleman’s staff — and in one hour it was a done deal, the dream turned into reality.” As mayor, Froese said he would seek to “bring the same spirit into one room” at yearly strategic planning sessions. “Leaders take responsibility for actions and outcomes. If it didn’t work, own it, without blaming council and staff,” said Froese. “As mayor, I will carry out the will of council and be accountable to voters. It’s about respect, and the buck stops here.”

Accused hit-run driver said he was in ‘shock’ at news of death FROM FRONT: “Three guys in the middle of the night, that late, the way things are these days, you don’t stop,” Parent said. As he accelerated away, he heard a loud bang. He assumed something had been thrown at his truck. He did not report the incident to police, he said, because he assumed everyone in the truck was “fine.” Under cross-examination by Crown prosecutor Donna Ballyk, Parent insisted he was “miffed”

when he thought the other truck had “high-beamed” him, but he wasn’t in a rage. “I felt irritated,” he said. “Annoyed?”, Ballyk asked. “Yes.” “It bugged you.” “Yes.” “It was as if he [the other driver] was saying, ‘speed up.’” “Yes.” “And when you tapped your brake, you were saying no.” “Yes,” Parent said.

Under further questioning by the prosecutor, Parent said it was possible the other truck only appeared to have flashed its high beams because it rode higher than his truck on bigger tires. Earlier in the trial, his brother Lloyd Teneycke testified that he had fallen asleep in his brother’s truck only to be awakened by a “rubbing” noise and the Ford pickup truck veering. He told the court that after the collision with the Silverado,

his brother drove back to see if anyone was hurt, but sped away because the young men from the other truck appeared angry and aggressive. Teneycke said he and his brother had no idea they’d hit anyone until the next morning when they heard it on the news. “The ground kind of came out from beneath me,” Teneycke said. “I was in shock.” Brent “turned white,” he said.

Infrastructure improvements include a new 9,600-foot taxiway that parallels the main runway, expansion of the west apron and various surface and lighting projects. “Partnerships were the key to our success,” said Dave Holmberg, chair of the Abbotsford Airport Authority. “And it’s only just beginning.” The list of political speakers included Abbotsford Mayor George Peary, MLAs John van Dongen and Michael de Jong and MP Ed Fast. “These important upgrades ... will increase transportation safety, improve airport efficiency and create local jobs,” said Fast. Peary said the airport will become “an economic dynamo” for the city and credited the work of local businesses, developers and airport officials. “This is the real A team, this is the team that makes things happen. This is the team that gets things done.” According to Peary, the federal government spent $4 million building the airport back in the 1940s, the equivalent to $50 million in today’s dollars. Considering the additional $30-million in improvements, he believes the city “has a brand new airport.”

Arden Holmes Student raises funds and awareness for East Africa

Jim Sinclair with Phoung Le There was no training for employees and no procedures were in place. Workers “were essentially asked to be careful” and that was it. There had been warnings signs of a gas buildup in the days leading up to the Sept. 5 tragedy, he added. Under new worker safety laws the three accused face a possible maximum maximum fine of $600,000 and up to six months in jail. However, previous court decisions have not come anywhere near the maximum. Outside court the families of the victims said that anything short of a jail term for the three would be an injustice. Tracey Phan, whose father Michael Phan remains in a coma, said allowing the farm owners to escape with only a fine would not be right. “We’ve lost the most important people in our lives,” she said. Her mother Phoung Le said she personally witnessed the events of that day and she believes her husband and the other men did not volunteer, but were ordered into the shed. Speaking through an interpreter, she said she hopes the judge will consider how it would feel if he lost his loved ones under similar circumstances. BC Federation of Labour president Jim Sinclair attended the hearing. “What we want is justice and jail time for people who flagrantly disregard the law,” said Sinclair, who has called for a coroner’s inquest into the tragedy. The sentencing hearing will resume Sept. 22 in Surrey Provincial Court.

Arden Holmes, a grade 12 student at the Langley Fine Arts School, organized an event that raised over $1,100 for MCC East Africa drought response. It was the images of devastation coming out of Kenya and Ethiopia that drove Arden Holmes to action. The 17-year-old Langley Fine Arts School student always thought of herself as someone of compassion and empathy but decided that this time, she wanted to make a difference. As she discussed ideas and options with her mother, Teresa Pippus, she soon realized that if she really wanted to do something of substance, she’d have to involve others. She and her mother soon became a team, organizing a barbecue and silent auction to raise funds for Mennonite Central Committee (MCC)’s East Africa Famine Relief. “A barbecue just seemed like the ideal setting to not only get people together for a good time but along with a silent auction, would raise awareness and money,” Arden says. Arden booked a picnic area at Derby Reach in Fort Langley and started inviting people through Facebook. Teresa also invited people from her work and contributed the food for the barbecue. Friends, family and local businesses contributed items for the silent auction – everything from scarves and jewelry to a bluetooth set. On the day of the barbecue, friends helped with set up and as people ar-

rived they were able to bid on auction items right away. When it was time to eat, guests were encouraged to make a donation for famine relief efforts in East Africa. “To my surprise and happiness, everyone donated,” Arden says, adding that the feedback that she got on the event was very positive. Arden chose MCC as the organization to which she’d contribute because she felt confident that the funds raised would get where they were intended to go. It was important to her that she could meet with MCC director of resource development, Phil Schafran, to talk about her fundraising efforts. Schafran was moved by Arden’s compassion and hard work. “It was great to meet Arden and Teresa and hear about Arden’s efforts to raise money for those suffering from the East Africa famine,” Schafran says. “Arden is an inspiration to all of us to make a difference in people’s lives and be surprised by joy.” In the end, Arden and her guests raised over $1,100 to help those in need in East Africa. She is very proud of her efforts – not only for the money it raised but for the awareness it raised for those who participated. “(Two people) personally told me that they were going to donate money because of the awareness my event brought to them and their families. That was really awesome to hear,” she says, adding that she is so glad that she became a person of action.

VICTORIA – The Americanization of Canadian and B.C. politics is gathering speed now that legislated fouryear terms are finally settling in at the federal and provincial level. Scheduled elections are an important reform, but the downside is that they seem to lead inexorably to constant campaigning. The latest example is the B.C. Liberal Party’s website and radio campaign directed at upstart B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins. “Strange days indeed,” NDP leader Adrian Dix mused on his Facebook page. “The Liberals, after a week of nasty attacks on the NDP, launched an anti-John Cummins website. Absent a policy agenda, the Liberals seem to want to blame others for their problems. This too will backfire as Ms. Clark is again misreading the public mood. People are demanding substance in politics these days, not photo ops and negative attacks.” I see nothing strange in Dix rushing to the defence of Cummins, who represents the NDP’s best hope for a move into the legislature’s west wing. It is a bit odd for Dix to accuse others of lacking policy, as he leads a party that has been distinguished by little other than negative political tactics since its near-death experience in 2001. This is almost as strange

as the B.C. Liberals damning Cummins as a politician who “says one thing and does another.” Yeah, that can really come back to bite you. There hasn’t been much of an anti-Dix effort yet, but you can be sure there is one sitting on the shelf, prepared for Clark’s recently-abandoned fall election plan. The “nasty attacks” Dix complained about were focused on his federal party’s sudden preference for Quebec seats in the House of Commons, and sniping about which Premier Clark hired more political staff – Christy or Glen? And it was the NDP who started the negative cycle with their own TV ad, featuring “Campbell Crunch” and “Christy Crunch” cereals, both “loaded with HST.” (I can put to rest the ghastly rumour that the B.C. Liberal war room will soon unleash a gang of angry, unemployed HST stick-men.) The U.S. tactic of going negative early, to define your rivals before they can define themselves, has worked spectacularly for Stephen Harper’s Conservatives. They scorched federal Liberal leaders Stéphane Dion and Michael Ignatieff, and public distaste for these methods does not seem to have hurt them. The anti-Cummins campaign has a similar style, and there are indications that it may have been produced in Toronto.

The website, canttrustcummins.ca, uses a bug-eyed photo of the former fisherman-MP that makes him look like a ray gun-wielding alien from the movie Mars Attacks. In fact our whole political scene is starting to look like a rerun of a bad 1990s movie. It was Reform BC that rose from the ashes of Social Credit, and inspired a desperate Gordon Campbell to sing country music and take a hard line on aboriginal relations, to stitch the ruptured right back together. Cummins defined himself as a Reform-AllianceConservative MP by railing against treaties, and that continues to be the core of his thin policy book. His other two main ideas are also pure rural populism. He vows to scrap the carbon tax and suggests that municipalities should cut their costs to fund transit. Voters will have a better idea by the end of this week if Clark’s plan for “defending and creating jobs” is really new policy, or merely more photo ops. B.C. has had its first taste of California-style tax revolt. Now we have two years ahead that will be dominated by relentlessly negative, continuous campaigning.

Langley couple Janice and Peter Nikkel are riding 220 kilometres for the Wellspring Foundation for Education’s Lake2Lake Ride for Rwandan school children, on Oct. 1-2. The Lake2Lake Ride for Rwanda was launched in memory of Ben Farrant, best friend of Wellspring executive director, Richard Taylor. It was 2006 when Ben, then 25, was killed on 200 Street in Langley while training for the 300 km Seattle-to-Portland ride to raise funds for Wellspring. As Ben’s mother, Helga Farrant shares, “Ben had poured himself into helping fund Wellspring, determined to help heal a nation decimated by genocide.” She adds, “Ben would be so proud of each rider” that has chosen to ride for this cause. Janice had been recruiting people to join this fully supported ride and hadn’t really thought about doing the ride herself. However, once she made the decision to ride, she cajoled her husband to ride with her. He quickly agreed. “Wellspring is making a significant difference in the lives of thousands of children in public schools throughout Rwanda” she said, “and I want to find partners here to help expand the work.” Most recently, the Rwandan government has invited Wellspring’s teacher trainers to train all the school inspectors throughout the country. Janice, a mother of four, and part time development officer with Wellspring admits she’s never seriously cycled but she has started training for this cause. Peter is a high school music and English teacher. In March, Peter and Janice went to Rwanda and saw the work of Wellspring first hand. Janice observed, “Not only has Wellspring created one of the top schools in Rwanda with the Wellspring Academy, but the school development program that currently works in 41 public schools impacts over 50,000 children and Janice Nikkel is gearing up to is gaining attention throughout ride 220km to raise funds for Africa as a proven method of schools in Rwanda. transforming the next generation.” Wellspring has also helped create and supports a network of over 800 teachers called the Association of Committed Teachers (ACT Rwanda). “Rwanda is called the land of a thousand hills. While there we would see Rwandans riding bikes laden with bananas and other supplies up these hilly roads. Often it would take two people to push these bikes up a hill. I am trusting I’ll make it up the Okanagan hills on a bike that won’t be laden with anything,” says Janice. It has been 17 years since the 1994 genocide decimated Rwanda’s education system, political stability and health care. The genocide has been compared to three 9/11s every day for one hundred days. Today, there is a window of opportunity to help the next generation of Rwandans through quality education. Since 2004, the Langley-based Wellspring Foundation for Education has been working with Rwandans to empower a new generation of leaders through education that transforms lives. There is currently a window of opportunity to help Rwanda overcome its huge educational gap and accomplish its goal of overcoming extreme poverty and transitioning towards a service based economy by the year 2020. Today Rwandans are still working to overcome the legacy of the 1994 genocide. Quality education is a key to this process. Yet many children learn in overcrowded classrooms with 60 to 100 students. Teachers lack certification, ongoing training, resources, and adequate pay. Morale is low and absenteeism is rampant. It’s an overwhelming situation. But there is hope. Learn more about these initiatives and how you can get involved. Visit www.thewellspringfoundation.com to find out more. Janice would like to challenge everyone to get involved. If you see her riding around town on her bike, toot your horn to encourage her. If you would like to join the ride, registration is open at www. lake2lake.org or if you wish to help the Nikkel’s reach their goal of $5,000, you can make a secure donation at www.thewellspringfoundation.com/lake2lake/donate For more information on the work of Wellspring, visit: www.thewellspringfoundation.com

Why so much red tape in our lives today? Editor: Why can’t governments just let us live our lives without all this interference? Red tape upon red tape. Marijuana has been growing free for many years. It is a good herb. It helps so many ailments and is very easy to cultivate. The government gets their hands on it and makes it illegal. Why? Because they can. To my knowledge there are no harmful affects, but helps the sick and injured endure their pain and suffering. My husband Ross can not be helped any more than he is with chemicals, so I want to help him more and ob-

tain medical marijuana. In steps the government and makes it hard on me. I would hate to be facing dementia. It affects every part of our daily life. I wish they could put themselves in his shoes for just one day and see how it feels. Anything longer would be more than they would want to face. The marijuana helps Ross deal with his journey. We are in our 13th year of facing and dealing with his dementia. With many more years ahead of him. It could well be another ten years for all anyone knows and I just want him to enjoy what he has left without governments putting up more road

blocks for him and us. The Alzheimers Society turned its back on us, the government doesn’t want Ross to have any relief from marijuana, and now another form of government wants to strip Ross of his driver’s licence. They won’t let him have a road test to demonstrate his driving skills. We are all just human beings trying to live our lives. We are not radicals. Some trials and tribulations in this life are good, but jeepers, does every form of government have to jump on us at the same time? Lorraine Hubbs, Langley

Salmon stopped Editor: Imagine my consternation, while walking my dogs in the Aldergrove off-leash park, to find the GVRD parks department has filled in a salmon stream with rocks, stopping salmon migrating to spawn. The band of “workers” who did

this are either ignorant or arrogant regarding B.C.’s and Langley Township’s commitment to preservation of natural habitat. I further question the Township’s lack of oversight concerning the GVRD’s action, I feel it is time the taxpayers re-

ceived value for payments to the GVRD. Enhancement, not destruction, is my choice. I would rather not comment on the inanity of the “poop scoop shovel” program the GVRD is instituting, I cannot restrain the laughter. Terry Brenan, Aldergrove

What money is made through these ‘services’ would go into general coffers, and we all know that whatever goes into ‘general’ coffers is seldom seen outside the Vancouver ‘proper’ area. Now having said that, if you go to the entrance off LeFeuvre there is a sign that ‘Aldergrove Lake Regional Park’ is intended to be a nature park... this to me does not include commercial business. We need more time to assess the plans and we need more input from those of us who will be impacted. D. Atkinson. Aldergrove

needed back when the deterioration problems were identified, the services they are suggesting such as vending machines may have been a nice addition to a ‘tourist’ attraction. Now they just want to put in vending machines and dog washing facilities. Not a lot of input has been received from the locals on this one, and once again this is Metro trying to find ways to take money out of our pocket without providing any substantial benefit to those of us in Aldergrove and the surrounding area.

Editor: “Soaring ridership is putting TransLink under pressure”, according to reports in The Aldergrove Star. We in the Township of Langley were lured into what was then called the GVRD (now Metro Vancouver) in the late 1980s by then-mayor John Beales. The thought of joining the GVRD was fine in theory. But the Township did not have a long-range balanced agenda in terms of joining the regional district. Enthusiasm, plus self-serving aspirations, often supercedes common sense. The Township is now part of a huge, uncontrollable octopus. When it comes to TransLink, it’s like sandpaper against the bare skin. There have been no communications with constituents in Langley who pay for TransLink. Most decisions are arbitrary ones, from the top down. TransLink is constantly draining away our personal resources, to serve whom? It is certainly not serving most residents of the Township. As the current situation in the U.S. shows, public agencies can’t endlessly keep going to the well for more money. There has been too much government on “autopilot” in the past. Now is the time for citizens and politicians to start speaking up. Harvey Schultz, Aldergrove

Editor: I find it ironic that Metro Parks feels that they can make some money by allowing services and businesses to start up in Metro Parks. They refer specifically to Aldergrove Lake Regional Park, which is as stupid is, as stupid does. There is no longer a lake in this park. Metro Parks deemed the lake unsafe and destroyed it, knowing full well, years ago, that it was deteriorating. The irony of this whole thing is that if they had given this lake the love and attention it

Plan for the Future

perfect gift!

While mortgage rates are still hovering at historic lows, it’s always important to plan for the future because essentially, interest rates have nowhere to go but up – it’s just a matter of when and how much. So although now is a fabulous time to purchase because of today’s low rates and attractive market, you may want to consider using your pre-payment options to set your mortgage payment as high as you can comfortably afford. That way, you’ll be better prepared when rates do increase AND you’ll be paying off your mortgage principal faster. Another way you can pay off your mortgage faster is to make your mortgage payment each week or even every other week. Either of these payment options decreases the amount of interest you pay over the term of your mortgage, results in the equivalent of an extra month’s mortgage payment each year and will have you mortgage free approximately 4 years sooner. So enjoy the low rates today but plan for the future... the more you pay your mortgage down while rates are low, the sooner you’ll be mortgage-free! If you would like to save on your mortgage, please call...

rested without incident. No weapons or drugs were found, only clothing and cash. The men were held overnight before being turned over to immigration officials. MacDonald said one of the men was linked to a New York address. In other news, Abbotsford police have launched a new radio system, which is already receiving rave reviews from officers. The digital E-Comm system began last week, replacing the former analog system and providing better transmission among officers and dispatch. MacDonald said police previously lost communication in areas such as in Bradner and Sumas Prairie but that is no longer the case. The system is currently in a test period before its full launch in early October.

Four border jumpers were picked up by the Abbotsford police on Tuesday night, Sept. 13, after the local department received a call from the U.S. Border Patrol. According to Const. Ian MacDonald, on Sept. 13 at approximately 12:15 a.m., a Lynden farmer saw four individuals jump across the ditch which separates the two countries. The men crossed from the U.S. side into Canada by Ross Road and the area was searched by officers and canine units. “It took about 45 minutes to locate the men,” said MacDonald. Four men, ranging in age from 21-41, were found close to a shed in a field at the 600-block of Ross Road. They were ar-

nearly $1,000 in exchange for his trunk box. The victim sent the money via Western Union to an “accountant” in Ghana. Police were able to establish the transaction was fraudulent with a simple Google search. The army officer is a real person, however, in this instance and many others the fraudsters have been impersonating him.

A proposed new, 10,000 square foot army cadet building took a small step forward after Abbotsford council gave its approval in principle to a plan to construct the new facility in Abbotsford’s Grant Park, 31800 Madiera Place. The 1922 Royal Westminster Army Cadet Corps would finance, construct and maintain the facility, which would be uses for its youth programs. “We are looking for a new home in Abbotsford,” said Eleanor Klawer, vice-chair of the sponsoring committee for the cadets. The 1922 has been running its program in Aldergrove for the past 68 years. However, with the closure of the Canadian Forces Base in Aldergrove, the cadets are seeking a new location. Klawer said that the 1922 is a local corps. They have about 50 cadets registered and more than 40 are from Abbotsford. The proposed building would feature a small gyms and rooms of various sizes which would be made available for community use as well. Other details on the project are vague. No plans have been created on how the building will look as Klawer wants to “have a location” first. There is also no business plan for the proposal yet.

All in the family for Ben Walter By DAN KINVIG Black Press

When Ben Walter inked a twoway contract with the Flames/Heat in early July, he had no idea he’d be potentially working for his dad. But just over a month after Ben signed on the dotted line, his father Ryan was named president and CEO of the Heat. The younger Walter said his dad’s arrival in the organization was a pleasant surprise. “After I signed, maybe that first week or so, he was talking to me and mentioned that they were thinking about offering him that job,” Ben related with a grin. “Just before they announced it, he came to me and said, ‘Is this okay? Do you have a problem with this?’ “And obviously I don’t. He’s the right guy for the job there, and I

The Langley Events Centre has submitted a bid to host the B.C. senior AAA provincial girls basketball championships. The bid is a joint effort with Basketball B.C. If successful, the LEC would host the tournament March 6-9, 2013. The Events Centre has the AAA senior boys’ provincial basketball tournament through the 2015 year. And beginning this March, the junior girls’ championships will be held at the LEC. Should the bid for the senior girls tournament be successful, the 2013 junior girls tournament would be moved forward one week with all three tournaments running consecutively.

With their pre-season behind them, the Langley Rivermen are set for the first-ever season in the British Columbia Hockey League. To make it official, the ice is in at the Langley Events Centre and the team started practicing on their home ice Wednesday. “Not being in our home rink provided us an opportunity to make the LEC something for our players to strive for and earn the opportunity to play there,” said director of operations Taylor Henderson adding that the new team bus was also a golden nugget dangling for the players. Henderson was touching on the new team bus, run by Team Charters, which was unveiled over the final preseason weekend and is sure to open some eyes on the road. The Rivermen wanted to ensure they recognized their commu-

CAMPAIGN ORGANIZERS AND ELECTOR ORGANIZATIONS Campaign Organizers are groups or individual(s) that create and implement local government election campaigns that augment the election campaign of one or more candidates or elector organizations. Elector Organizations are organizations that endorse the election of a particular candidate. If an elector organization intends to endorse one or more candidates in this election, and wishes to have its name on the ballot along with the candidate’s name, the organization must have been in existence for at least 60 days and have had a membership of at least 50 electors of the Township of Langley for that period. The last day for establishment of an elector organization that wants to endorse a candidate in this election was August 14, 2011. Election Campaigns include, among other things, the promotion or opposition to the election of a candidate. Typically an election campaign involves communicating with the electorate through public appearances, advertising, brochures, signage, websites, mailing inserts, newsletters, displays, and exhibitions. Campaign finance requirements apply to both Elector Organizations and Campaign Organizers, and a financial agent must be appointed who is responsible for ensuring compliance with these requirements.

ELECTION SIGNS/BANNERS Candidates are not permitted under the Township of Langley Bylaws to erect election signs outside buildings or on properties before Sunday, October 30, 2011 and all election signs are required to be removed by 4:30pm, Wednesday, November 23, 2011.

Due to the municipal election on November 19, Douglas Day 2011 will be held on Sunday, November 20. If you are a Langley pioneer or know someone who might be, contact us by Wednesday, November 2: Lisa Egan Special Events Coordinator Corporate Communications and Events 604.533.6148 legan@tol.ca

Candidates should be careful when planning campaign activities, as the individuals or organizations hosting or organizing these events and campaigning for candidates may fall within the category of Campaign Organizer, and may be required to register with the Chief Election Officer, as well as possibly having to file a Campaign Financing Disclosure Statement.

Football facilities enhanced at McLeod Aldergrove Star

Improvements made to McLeod Athletic Park (MAP) will benefit young football players from throughout the community, thanks to contributions from the three levels of government, the Langley School District, and a dedicated sports association. Members of the Langley Minor Football Association were joined by MP Mark Warawa and Township of Langley Mayor Rick Green at MAP on September 13th to officially unveil the new additions and upgrades, which Langley Minor Football President Wayne McMurchy hopes will lead to an increased interest in the sport. “The Government of Canada is excited to have been a part of this project, which will give young football players a place to call their own,” said Langley MP Mark

Warawa. “Athletes in Langley will now enjoy more practice time and space, and I’m certain that enthusiastic fans will be pleased to come out to this facility to cheer them on.” Lighting was added to an underutilized grass field on the north side of Langley Secondary School, west of McLeod Athletic Park’s grandstand, to allow football to be played later into the night, and an extension was added to the grandstand building to create two rooms that will store bulky football equipment. “We want to get kids playing football and we want to fill that grandstand,” McMurchy said. A new, fully-functioning concession, complete with a grill and commercial dishwasher, has been added to the grandstand building, facing the field. Langley Minor Football will manage the conces-

sion, and make it available to other user groups and for special events. Stairs will also be constructed in the future to give better access to upstairs storage space. The improvements at McLeod Athletic Park were made thanks to a $102,000 contribution from the Government of Canada’s Recreational Infrastructure Canada program and $100,000 in provincial gaming funds, through a Major Capital Project Grant. The Township of Langley contributed Neighbourhood Initiative Program funds, and the remainder was supplied by Langley Minor Football. With $370,000 worth of funding, several projects were undertaken in partnership with the Township of Langley and School District #35. Not only will the improvements make it easier for Langley Minor Football teams to practice and play, they will also benefit high school football teams, Rams junior football, and North Langley Minor Football. From June to December, McLeod Athletic Park will be a designated football facility, giving the sport full access to the fields, buildings, and grandstand. There are currently 350 young people involved in Langley Minor Football, and McMurchy hopes the enhanced facilities will bring more players – and fans – out to enjoy the sport. “Any opportunity to get young people involved in sports is worthwhile, and the improvements to McLeod Athletic Park will help raise football’s profile in our community,” said Township of Langley Mayor Rick Green.
