Teachers’ vote puts high Possible fines for school sports up in the air

improper asbestos disposal

Bill 22 protest could mean cancellation of badminton, golf, mountain biking, rugby, girls soccer, tennis and track and field GARY AHUJA

TYLER ORTON

The fate of the spring seasons for various B.C. high school sports should be determined within the week. “The championships start at the end of May, so that gives us five weeks,” said Sue Keenan, the executive director of B.C. School Sports, the governing body responsible for the delivery of high school sports in the province. “We really want to do everything we can to ensure that the championships go ahead. “If at the end of the day, we don’t have the resources or we don’t have enough people to stage and event, then the commission will make a determination on a sport-by-sport basis on whether they will be able to provide a viable championship or not.” The organization held a meeting on Friday to discuss the results of the teachers’ vote earlier in the week in response to Bill 22, the Education Improvement Act. Seventy-three per cent of the province’s teachers voted in favour of withdrawing their participation in all extracurricular activities, including sports, graduation ceremonies and end-of-year celebrations. A total of 21,625 teachers voted ‘yes’ compared to 7,846 ‘no’ votes. “This vote sends a powerful message to government that they must re-think Bill 22, listen to the concern of teachers, respect our rights and invest in services to students,” said B.C. Teachers Federation president Susan Lambert in a press release. She said the vote was an emotional one for teachers because the decision to withdraw from extracurricular activities was a wrenching choice. “Teachers struggle with this because

BCSS relies on the efforts of 15,000 volunteer coaches to run 18 sports, which conclude with 45 provincial championships. Of the 15,000 coaches, 58 per cent are teachers, but that number includes 15 per cent who represent private/independent schools. Teams will need either parents, community volunteers or school administrators to fill the coaching void if the seasons are to continue.

The B.C. Ministry of Environment is investigating a local business for improper disposal of hazardous material, after bags of asbestos were found scattered across the company’s property last month. Suntanu Dalal, spokesman for the Ministry of Environment, confirmed conservation officers received a complaint March 28 regarding the storage of hazardous waste on property used by Red Demo Ltd.’s Langley branch. “As there is an investigation underway, we cannot comment any further,” Dalal said via email. Red Demo operations manager Bob Caya said he’s likely facing a fine from the government once the investigation is complete. “I’m not really supposed to have it (asbestos) on the property,” he said.“I got my wrist slapped, basically, from the ministry.” Caya said Red Demo’s offices have been operating from a residence located at 20106 27 Ave. for two and one-half years, but the asbestos only began piling up in the yard a few months ago. He said he’s already hired someone to remove it from the property, but in the meantime the hazardous material does not pose a health risk since it’s been properly wrapped in two disposal bags. “(The Ministry of Environment is) very confusing about the rules and regulations,” Caya said, adding the government originally told him he could transport 1,000 kilograms of asbestos for any given job. He said the ministry later informed him only homeowners — not contractors like himself — are permitted to transport that much asbestos to a dump for disposal. Dalal confirmed homeowners are permitted to transport hazardous waste from their own property to authorized waste management facilities, but contractors must obtain a hazardous waste transport licence. Caya said he’ll likely revise the contracts with his clients in order to comply with government regulations.

City lands luxury development 15-storey building features 46 residential units and $1.2 million penthouse

It promises to be a place where Jay Gatsby would have felt right at home. On Thursday afternoon, the City of Langley unveiled plans for a new 15-storey mixed commercial/ condominium development, designed on a 1920s theme. Construction is scheduled to begin on Charleston Place next spring, on what is currently the site of China Beach night club at 203 Street and Industrial Avenue.

A 29-year-old Langley mother with her two-year-old child in the back seat was caught driving three times over the legal limit on Thursday afternoon. According to Langley RCMP, the local mom caused a three-car pile up and appeared impaired to investigating officers. Around 1:30 p.m., Langley RCMP were called to the three-vehicle crash in the 6200 block of Mufford Crescent. The investigation revealed that a 1999 Ford F150 had rear-ended a 2007 Toyota FJ which was knocked into the rear end of a 2010 Toyota Matrix. Fortunately no one was injured as a result of the collision, however officers investigating noted that the driver of the F150 displayed signs of impairment, said police spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks. The driver, the 29-year-old mom, was brought back to Langley detachment where she blew in excess of three times the legal limit. “Of particular concern, aside from the fairly high readings and the time of day, was the fact that the driver’s two-year-old child was a passenger in the vehicle,” said Marks. Charges will be recommended to Crown counsel for this driver. Later that evening, a 44-year-old Langley man was found sleeping at the intersection of 200 Street and 88 Avenue. He had apparently passed out while waiting at a stop light. Police found him to be intoxicated and brought him back to the detachment where he refused to blow into a breathalyzer. Police will recommend he be charged with impaired driving as well. Motorists choosing to operate a vehicle while impaired in Langley are taking monumental risks, stresses Marks. They risk getting caught — Langley RCMP continues to remain vigilant in their pursuit of impaired drivers. They risk financial hardship for the fines they may receive. They risk interruption in their employment by their inability to drive due to prohibitions and the impoundment of their vehicle. They risk going to jail. They also risk taking a life.

Council caught off guard by plans for Aldergrove mall demolition NATASHA JONES

9EARSOF3ERVINGTHE#OMMUNITY  9 9EARSOOF3 3ERVINGTTHE# #OMMUNITY

Times Reporter

A plan to demolish Aldergrove Mall, leaving the two anchor stores intact, will leave a gaping hole “that’s going to look like a hockey player in the playoffs without their front teeth,� Councillor Charlie Fox remarked last Monday, April 16. Council members were taken aback by a letter from the owners announcing the plan. In the letter, Sonny Janda of the Janda Group seeks the support of the mayor, council and staff for a demolition permit for certain areas of the mall, which is located north of Fraser Highway at 272 Street. Dollarama, the east-end anchor, and a drug store on the south side, will likely survive the wrecker’s ball, if a demolition for the balance of the shopping centre is approved. Many stores are empty. Janda said that over the past few years, the company has explored many opportunities “including participating in the Aldergrove Planning Committee to gain exposure from the community and experts.� An obstacle to achieving its

The area destined to be torn down is subject to structural, electrical, mechanical and civil elements, he said. “It’s a pretty exciting opportunity for Aldergrove,� commented Councillor Kim Richter.

The company said that it wants to retain the Extra Foods store, the west end anchor first occupied by Super Valu, “as a heritage unit.� “You’re not protecting a heritage building there,� remarked Councillor Bob Long. Council asked staff to follow up with the mall owners.

tenure opportunity agreements that provide First Nations with both short and longer-term certainty of supply for their business, with the goal of achieving 13 new tenure agreement in 2012-13. A colourful ceremony Friday included the blanketing of dignitaries, including Langley MLA Mary Polak, Minister of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation.

Polak said that by signing the agreement the Kwantlen people “will be putting forestry revenue back into their community to help realize economic and social goals, while supporting industry with clarity on operational decisions.” Chief Marilyn Gabriel hailed the agreement as a chance for the First Nations people “to continue to build capacity, diversify our economy and play a larger and more involved role in forestry activity within our traditional territory.” Polak said that the agreement shows that “when we work together we can do some amazing things.” A tremendous amount has already been done that will lead to other productive elements coming from the agreement, she predicted. Township Mayor Jack Froese spoke of the significance and importance of the First Nations in the community. Noting that this week marks the 139th anniversary of the Township’s founding as a corporation, Froese said:“We are not just your neighbours. We are your guests on your land. We have been your guests for 139 years.” Among the guests was Theresa Gibson, a 97-year-old elder who had travelled from California for the ceremony.

Missing teen prompts search Time of the essence: Keenan hospital for treatment. The boy, 15, was last seen at the corner of Fraser Highway and 222 Street shortly before 1 p.m. Lower Mainland Police Dog Services attended, however a track could not be established due to the high volume of foot traffic, said police spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks. Officers canvassed local businesses with a photo of the missing boy and found he had entered a downtown store in Murrayville very shortly after he had been reported missing. Extensive patrols were made in the area to no avail. At 7:30 p.m., Fraser Valley Search and Rescue was called to

Fifteen-year-old boy turns up 12 hours later MONIQUE TAMMINGA Times Reporter

A local teen with medical needs walked away from Langley Memorial Hospital on Sunday afternoon, prompting a massive search for the boy. Just past midnight Monday morning, the boy’s father called police to say his son had returned home to Fort Langley. Police went there and returned the youth to the

help. An hour later a search plan was devised for the volunteers to begin searching the large wooded area northeast of 222 Street and Fraser Highway. Another 40 minutes later, the missing boy contacted his mother saying he was alright but refusing to give his location. A trace of the phone call revealed the boy was calling from a pay phone in Walnut Grove. Again police dogs were used, but they were unable to locate him. Just past midnight, the boy returned home. Langley RCMP wanted to thank all of the people who volunteered their time to find this boy.

Keenan said it will be up to each sport’s commission to determine whether that sport will proceed, and time is of the essence, as the zone championships approach. “The next week will be critical for us,” she said. BCSS, a voluntary non-profit society which oversees 425 schools, also stands to lose a significant amount of money. “That is a nightmare unto itself,” she said. “I think that gets lost in the big scheme of things. “We have all of the championship banners

here ready to go, all the championship medals have already been pre-ordered. To stage these things, you are planning a year in advance. “All those costs are already incurred.” She also pointed out that most championship venues — such as Swangard Stadium — are outside of schools and have already been booked and paid for. “At the end of the day, if (the championships) don’t happen, there is not only a loss to the students in terms of the championships, but financial loss as well,” Keenan said.

THEY SAY

Behold new government

On brink of maturity

T

he NDP will win the next election. That was made crystal clear in Thursday’s two byelections. The NDP won Port Moody-Coquitlam by a sizeable margin, as was expected. They had a popular candidate (and former Liberal) in recently-retired Port Moody mayor Joe Trasolini, and results were much as expected. The real surprise and key result was in Chilliwack-Hope, where the NDP won a seat they have never held. Gwen O’Mahony took the seat in a three-way fight, with the BC Liberal vote melting away, and the resurgent BC Conservatives coming third with 25 per cent of the vote, despite a poorlyfunded and disorganized campaign. Liberal candidate Laurie Throness got 4,399 votes and 31 per cent of the vote. This compares with Barry Penner in the 2009 general election, who got 8,985 votes. So the Liberals, in the course of three years, lost more than half their support, with a large proportion of that going to the BC Conservatives, whose candidate John Martin got 3,548 votes. The Conservatives did run a candidate in the riding in 2009, and he got 1,148 votes. There is another factor that most media outlets have ignored. That’s the voter turnout. In the 2009 election, 16,865 votes were cast in ChilliwackHope. On Thursday, despite the intense scrutiny this race has been under, and numerous visits by the premier and other party leaders, 14,013 people voted. That means more than 2,800 stayed home — likely because they wouldn’t vote for the Liberals, and did not want to vote for anyone else. If the Liberals can convince most of those people to come back to them in the next election, the Liberals will win seats like Chilliwack-Hope next year. However, the vote splits in other ridings ensure that the NDP will win a majority government. The Liberals won a number of seats in 2009 by narrow margins (one by just 88 votes), with little or no Conservative opposition. The Conservatives only ran 24 candidates in 2009 and their leader, Wilf Hanni, was an unknown. In Langley, MLA Mary Polak may have a battle on her hands in 2013. The NDP’s Kathleen Stephany got 8,400 votes in 2009 to her 13,895. There was no Conservative candidate. If the Liberals can convince enough disaffected voters to come back to them, they will hold onto some seats. But in three-way fights, they will lose a lot of seats they now hold — and Langley may well be one of them.

et this be a clear message to all: Public displays of toy guns are not only socially awkward, they could put you in line for a Mountie smiting. For those who missed the police bulletins on the matter, there is a war on toys in this city. It started when a carload of teenage boys taking part in an antiquated grad tradition drove around a Kelowna neighbourhood wearing masks and brandishing fake firearms. Someone must have been put off by the realistic look, so they called the coppers. In short order, they swooped in and dealt with the issue. Children were frightened, feathers were ruffled, but there were no casualties. Police held a press conference about the dangers of fake guns the next day, and then hours later, an adult wielding a toy in the Same Sun hostel parking lot prompted police action. A notice to not play with toy guns was issued. On the surface it was all a bit ridiculous, but these are symptoms of an awkward developmental stage, best paralleled to puberty. Kelowna is on the brink of physical maturity but its frontal lobe is not entirely developed. That could be managed, but there’s also an unfortunate infection mucking up the works. The physical maturity is the creation of a truly diverse economy for the first time. The seeds for a Kelowna that won’t boom and bust as it has in the past have been planted. It means our population will grow and economic opportunities will spread. But we’re not quite savvy in the ways of that world, torn between small town and city values. For example, in no urban environment would grad kidnappings and bush parties be appropriate. Lest we forget, some witnesses to the infamous Bacon shooting in front of The Grand last summer said they thought they saw “toy guns.” So there’s cause for this war on firearms and the police are busy enough dealing with the whole city going through puberty. —Kelowna Capital News The Langley Times is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry.

Police acted quickly, professionally Editor: I would like to say thank you for the fantastic performance by several RCMP officers, whose names I didn’t even catch, for helping to find my six-year-old daughter on Tuesday, April 17. My mother-in-law picked up my daughter from her school around 2:30 p.m. On the way home, my daughter met one of her classmates and ran to her home without advising my mother-in-law. Grandmother couldn’t catch up with my daughter and guessed she was on the way home. She was shocked after she entered the house, and realized she had

lost the little girl. Grandmother can’t speak or understand English, so she had to call my wife and wait for her. After contacting some close friends and getting no information about my daughter, my wife decided to call police to get help. Several officers got to our home shortly after my wife’s call. They searched our neighbourhood — our house, my daughter’s friends’ home, and my daughter’s school — quickly and professionally. They also told my wife a police helicopter was helping in the air. At last, with the

help from a parent of my daughter’s friend, officers found my daughter in her friend’s home. The officers involved were professional, courteous and helped to put all our family members at ease. Again, I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to the RCMP. Although we didn’t catch your names after you brought my daughter home safely, we believe our neighborhood, our city, and our country will be a better and safer place, due to your hard and professional work. William Xie Langley

Better bike lanes are needed in Langley Editor: Spring has sprung The grass has riz I wonder where the bike lane is. Now that the good weather is upon us, one can see the streets and avenues dotted with cyclists preparing for races and marathons, and leisure riding. I use a hand cycle and can be found riding on many of the byways of our Township. I have observed that many streets and avenues south of 40 Avenue are totally devoid of a bike lane, and where one might be possible, it can be found littered with branches, broken glass, and various sizes of rock and gravel.

It has been reported that, last year, 2,157 Greater Vancouver cyclists were injured, so it is incumbent on those who build our roads and streets that there be a higher level of perception about bike lanes. How often do we hear the slogan “Go Green” from both government and media? There are those who will gladly park the gas guzzler for the cycle if their safety and accessibility is taken under consideration. Bicycles today are often high tech, not much resembling the one-speed our grandfathers rode and are pretty pricey. Mine cost $6,000. They are not always insurable. A little bit of closer scrutiny is of great

importance to those who choose to ride bicycles or other kinds of cycles. Without belabouring the issue even further, since this has been reported on at least once before already, it is this writer’ contention that Township council and staff make it a a higher consideration to making the streets and avenues more cycle-friendly. If any of the Township councillors are cyclists, they will appreciate where this writer is coming from. The Langley Walk (which includes cycles) is fast approaching. Let us hope that it is successful and safe. Ken Hinton, Langley

Hard to understand nub of the concern Editor: In response to a letter to the editor from Amanda Schaffner (The Times, April 19), I admit to some confusion on my part as to the purpose of her complaint. It appears that her main complaint is regarding the alleged rudeness of a Township of Langley employee. Fair enough. We expect our Township employees at all levels to be courteous and respectful. However, what purpose does Schaffner hope to accomplish with this letter to the editor of The Times? Is it simply to inform us that, in her

judgement, there is a rude employee working the streets? May I suggest a letter to the appropriate division at city hall would better serve that purpose? I am sorry to say that as it is, her complaint leaves me feeling no sympathy for her plight. She does not fully explain whether or not she received a parking infraction ticket for something she admittedly did — that is, park in a limited or no parking zone. I therefore believe that as she did not receive a ticket, and that the Township did indeed cut her some slack.

She raises a number of red herring issues, in my opinion. I am a believer in the Broken Window theory, written by James Q. Wilson and George L. Kelling, published in a 1982 issue of the The Atlantic Monthly. Accordingly, Schaffner has no one but herself to blame for this situation. Certainly I support her right to complain and try to relieve what, in her opinion, is an injustice. But I suggest she check the mirror first Rob Jones-Cook, Walnut Grove

TATTOO PARLOURS

Township should embrace these businesses Editor: I recently read the story about James Walther’s wanting to bring a tattoo parlour to the Township (The Times, April 19). I was shocked to find out about the restrictions on the types of businesses allowed and not allowed. I live in Langley City, and since we have many prospering tattoo parlours, I was never aware of this The

absurd bylaw. I am not too sure what the Township council thinks it is preventing by not allowing Walther to open shop up on 208 Street and 42 Avenue. Tattoos are not vulgar, but pieces of art displayed on one’s body. They have meaning and sentimental value and I believe they should be encouraged, not hidden away.

I will be signing the petition at Rider’s to get this bylaw changed and I support Walther’s cause 100 per cent. I hope that many more people will feel the same way and join me in signing. To James Walther, Good luck and I hope you achieve your goal. Dahn Powers, Langley

Obstruction called for

Editor: Re: “Oil on water,” (The Times, April 19). Like so many Langley folk, I cannot buy the notion that Big Oil is just a good sport who plays totally fair, in favour of its profit margins and all of our eco-concerns. Sure, we have Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson, who is “fiercely opposed” to the quintupling of tanker traffic due to pipeline development because “it means unacceptable risk of an oil spill and massive cost to our economy and our environment.” He then promises that Vancouver will voice its opposition to the federal government-appointed National Energy Board members, as though they are likely to decide against the Vancouver expansion or the Northern Gateway pipeline project, for that matter. Sorry, but oil sands projects proponent Stephen Harper and company know they’ll one way or another have the last say, thus making Robertson’s opposition futile, except perhaps for some political grandstanding points, regardless of Robertson’s sincerity in his environmental concerns. What we need is for all of the marchers and protesters — and especially the strong-willed determination of the aboriginal nations who have much to lose in the matter and refuse to be bought out regardless of their frequent poverty status — who are dead against such pipeline construction to translate their verbal steam into physical obstruction to any pipeline construction on B.C. territory. Frank G. Sterle, Jr., White Rock

Time to leave Metro, TransLink Editor: Re: TransLink’s Tax Tentacles, editorial, (The Times, March 27). It’s time for us to leave the GVRD (Metro Vancouver) and TransLink. We pay through the nose every time we gas up, and get next to nothing in return. Merge Langley Township and Langley City, and we will all be better off. It’s time we not-so-jolly taxpayers were listened to. George Sliziak, Langley

Things are shaping up nicely at Aldergrove Athletic Park. Over the years, thanks to the involvement of park user groups, the Township of Langley, the Aldergrove Rotary Club, local businesses and other organizations and levels of government, the park now boasts several natural turf fields, four baseball diamonds, tennis courts, a mountain bike park, a covered picnic area, a playground, a skateboard park, basketball courts and recently opened community gardens, among other attractions. Brian Thomasson, who founded the Aldergrove Rotary Club in 1990 and was the first president, is working with Reid McDonald on a grant application for $100,000 on behalf of Aldergrove Youth Soccer, where he coached for 13 years, on the next phase of the park: an artificial turf playing field. The Township has backed the project, and last week approved conversion of the practice area to turf as well. “There’s definitely a need,” said McDonald. “This is just starting to be a nice park. Soon, our kids won’t

Where have all the old halls gone? “It’s sad but people have moved on.” Thomasson, who noted the hall was named for Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry, remembered when he was head teacher at Patricia School in 1969 and 1970. “We used to hold the Christmas concerts there but there was no central heating, so I’d have to go two to three hours early to get the wood stove fire really going,” he said. He also recalled that there were no flush toilets. “I’d also put a fresh ‘tree’ (air freshener) in the biffy,” he said with a smile. “It’s too bad. Times have changed and there’s just no support to keep the old halls going. They’re all falling by the wayside.”

The last of the funds from the sale of Patricia Hall are going toward Aldergrove Athletic Park and the old hall, closed for years, is up for sale again. Formerly owned and operated by a community group whose sole wish was that funds from the sale be used to benefit the community, Patricia Hall was once part of a neighbourhood south of Aldergrove — Patricia — that no longer exists. Now, it is just called South Aldergrove. While McDonald and Thomasson are pleased the sale proceeds will benefit youth who use Aldergrove Athletic Park, both agree that no one seems to care about old community halls anymore. “Nobody’s really interested,” said McDonald.

servative Fraser Valley farm country, in a protest byelection with a high-profile candidate, the B.C. Conservatives managed to attract just enough to deliver a landmark NDP seat. The NDP was helped by the absence of the B.C. Green Party on the byelection ballots, with most of its five per cent support from 2009 presumably going to the winners. Cummins said his party’s goal going into the Port MoodyCoquitlam vote, with an unknown candidate and a handful of volunteers, was to break 10 per cent. They got 15 per cent and he declared a moral victory. Cummins rejected a possible merger with the “discredited” B.C. Liberals. Premier Christy Clark was equally emphatic that she will be the leader of the “free enterprise coalition” in the 2013 election. So the stage is set for an NDP majority government.

party, the B.C. Teachers’ Federation, which has already confirmed it will continue its long campaign to replace the B.C. Liberals with the NDP next year. Such a team brings impressive experience, but unfortunately for taxpayers, much of that experience has been in extracting money from the public treasury. And if recent B.C. history is any guide, this fundamental conflict of interest will receive little or no media attention in the months to come. Instead, the conventional wisdom will be that voters want “change.” • Correction: Last week’s column referred to the 1971 Greenpeace campaign against atmospheric nuclear testing. That protest boat was directed at a U.S. nuclear test off Alaska, not a Soviet test as stated. Subsequent Greenpeace protests targeted the Soviet slaughter of grey whales, and the last atmospheric nuclear tests, conducted by France in the South Pacific.

No new lake for Aldergrove NATASHA JONES Times Reporter

The lake in Aldergrove Lake Park, one of the community’s most popular summer attractions, dried up a year ago, and a water feature to replace it is unlikely, Councillor Bob Long advised council April 16. Long, who represents the Township on the Metro Vancouver environment and parks committee, said that the committee will receive a report on plans to replace the lake at its May 2 meeting. “There is no question that the water feature is not going to be coming back,” Long commented, after being quizzed by Councillor Charlie Fox on options for the lake. In March, 2011, Metro Vancouver parks board decided to drain the lake.The man-made facility, nestled in a forest clearing, had drawn families from all over Langley and Abbotsford for more than 50 years. “I don’t think there is any turning back from the decision,” Long said. “The pool cannot be upgraded and would need to be completely redesigned and rebuilt to meet current standards,” Metro Vancouver Parks committee chairman Gayle Martin said at the time. Under B.C. Public Health Act regulations which came into effect in

October, 2010, the lake at Aldergrove Lake Park met the definition of a public swimming pool and would have required an operating permit to re-open. Metro Van was unable to obtain a permit. The beach, picnic areas, trails and washrooms remain, and a report for the committee is expected to spell out plans for the area the lake occupied. Metro Van held public meetings to give the public the opportunity to comment on the future of the 280 hectare Aldergrove Lake Regional Park. Major stumbling blocks to building a similar facility are cost and the lack of water in the area. There is no municipal water in the vicinity; the water in the lake came from a well. There was consternation in the community when it became clear that the facility was in jeopardy. “Lots of families are concerned because they do view this as a summer daytime activity location,” Fox said at the time. “It’s a place that families can go for free, have a picnic, enjoy the waterbased activities . . . and really have a good day out relatively close to the community.” The swimming facility at Aldergrove Lake closed permanently in early 2011.

Langley home to three Women of Distinction

LANGLEY MEMORIAL HOSPITAL FOUNDATION’s

saturday saturday May 12, May 12, 2012 2012

Trio of finalists in youth, business and entrepreneur categories A trio of Langley women are finalists for this year’s YWCA’s Women of Distinction awards. Among them are an insurance broker, an entrepreneur and an abolitionist. Glenda Ouellette, vice president of broker distribution at ICBC, is nominated in the category of Business and Professions. An accomplished industry leader for 20 years, Ouellette aspires to establish women as part of the decision-making process within the insurance industry by encouraging networking opportunities and mentoring her colleagues. She has volunteered on council and as president for the Insurance Institute of B.C. Ouellette extends her energy and skills to many organizations to make the community a better place, including James Cameron School and 2277 Royal Canadian Army Cadets. “I’m a passionate supporter of education and it starts with early learning and childcare. I believe quality childcare, like that offered by the YWCA, is foundational to success in life,” said Ouellette. Nominated in the category of Entrepreneurship, Sandee Krause

is an outstanding business and community leader, who has transformed Krause Berry Farms & Estate Winery into a thriving and sustainable agri-tourism destination and world-class food supplier in Langley Township. This year marks the opening of an onsite winery, tasting room and restaurant, further evidence of Krause’s continuing efforts to grow and diversify the business. “It’s a natural choice for me to support the YWCA’s healthy choices for youth programs,” said Krause. “Each year I employ seasonal youth, offering similar support in a safe working environment, where they can learn new skills from role models who help face the challenges of transitioning into the work force. Investing in them begins with believing in them, providing training for today and encouragement for tomorrow.” Nominated as Young Woman of Distinction, Langley’s Tara Teng is a human rights activist who reigned as Miss Canada 2011, using the platform to bring awareness across Canada and Asia on the plight of humans sold into slavery. She has mobilized and lobbied the govern-

ments of Canada and Korea to speak out against this injustice, launched Freedom Week 2011 to speak against human slavery and exploitation.Teng also takes time to mentor student leaders and lobby local communities to take action against human trafficking and slavery. Her extensive advocacy work earned her a nomination by the Globe and Mail as one of the Top 25 Transformational Canadians and as a next generation leader by the Canadian Women of the Year awards. “Human Trafficking is one of the most extreme forms of violence against women,” said Teng. “As an abolitionist, I support the YWCA Vancouver initiative preventing violence against women because gender-based violence is a root cause of exploitation and trafficking. This horrific crime is happening in every Canadian city and cannot be tolerated; all women and their children deserve to live in freedom and safety.” The YWCA’s 2012 Women of Distinction Awards will be handed out on Thursday, May 24 at the Westin Bayshore.

of the audience, who are picked at random before the competition starts. Slam poetry has found popularity as a form of self-expression among many teenagers across North America. It has been recognized in the movie documentary “Louder than a Bomb” and in the HBO television series “Brave New Voices.” In British Columbia, the annual youth poetry slam championship “Hullabaloo” attracts many high school teams from around the province. One of the organizers of that event, R.C. Weslowski, will act as host and emcee of Scriptum Vox in Langley. Weslowski was named the male Poet of Honour at the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word in 2008 and has performed on stages across Canada and the USA. Weslowski’s bio describes him as a clown mouth full of X-ray visions trying to get at the heart of things. His work has been anthologized and published in magazines such as One Cool Word and he has travelled parts of Europe, setting his words adrift in England, France, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands. He will surely entertain, while guiding the slam. The top prize at Scriptum Vox is $100 cash. There are also several subsidiary prizes that will be awarded to some of the ranked and participating poets. These prizes, gifts, and gift cards have been donated by local merchants. The fee for entry is $2 and students must pre-register online at recexpress.ca or by calling 604-532-3536. The event is open to the public and admission is $3 at the door.

Thunder add prolific scorer GARY AHUJA Times Sports

Black Press file photo

Lewis Ratcliff (left) fends off a member of the Langley Thunder during Western Lacrosse Association action last season. Ratcliff, a prolific goal scorer, was acquired by the Thunder over the weekend in exchange for a pair of 2014 draft picks.

Not content to rest on the laurels of last season, the Langley Thunder have added one of lacrosse’s most dynamic players. The senior A lacrosse team — who last summer captured the Western Lacrosse Association championship for the first time in franchise history — acquired Lewis Ratcliff from the Nanaimo Timbermen over the weekend.The Thunder sent a pair of draft picks, a first and second rounder in 2014, to Nanaimo. “It should add a little bit of punch up front,” understated Langley general manager Gerry Van Beek. Ratcliff, who turns 31 today (Tuesday) is a prolific scorer both in the WLA and in the National Lacrosse League. “Lewis adds some more veteran leadership to our team as well as some tremendous skill.” In the NLL — where he has played for Calgary,Toronto and currently the Washington Stealth — Ratcliff has 344 goals and 746 points in 143 games. And in the WLA, with Victoria and Nanaimo, Ratcliff has 349 goals and 745 points in 137 games. He also won two Mann Cups, the Canadian national championship, with Victoria. The left-hander joins a potent Langley line-up which already features another top-notch goal scorer in righthander Athan Iannucci.This gives the Thunder goal-scoring options from both sides of the floor. Iannucci led the Thunder in 2011 with 29 goals in 18 games, which placed him tied for sixth. Ratcliff had 26 goals, but in just 10 games. He was on the trading block late last

season after he was unable to get to enough of Nanaimo’s games. “When we heard he might be available, we explored what it might take to make it work,”Van Beek said. With Ratcliff spending the majority of his time in the Pacific Northwest — including playing in the NLL with the Everett-based Washington Stealth. “We are pleased and excited,”Van Beek said. “It shows where we are trying to get to. “We are not sitting on successes from last year.” The club has had a busy month so far, adding Shayne Jackson and Brett Hickey, as well as the return of Joel McCready. Jackson played a major role in helping the Whitby Warriors win the Minto Cup, the national junior A championship, in 2012. In 77 games with the Warriors, he compiled 303 points. He is currently playing for the Limestone College on a field lacrosse scholarship. Hickey is another offensive-minded player with 418 points in 148 games at the junior A level with the Windsor Clippers. He is a teammate of Ratcliff’s on the Stealth. McCready, also from Ontario, played 2010 with Langley but took last year off after joining the Burnaby Fire Department.As a rookie two years ago, he had 48 points in 16 games. He is a solid two-way player. The Thunder began training camp last week as they gear towards the season, which opens on May 20.The team’s home opener at the Langley Events Centre is May 23. They will have an exhibition game at the George Preston Recreation Centre on May 13.

Blaze silence Cannons, split with Tritons The Langley Blaze offence was in fine form for much of the weekend as the U18 baseball team won three of four games. The Blaze quieted the Vancouver Cannons 10-0 and 8-1 on Saturday at Queen’s Park, before splitting a Sunday doubleheader with the White Rock Tritons. The Blaze took the opener 8-1 before losing 3-2 in game two. Langley (7-4) faces the North Delta Blue Jays tonight (Tuesday) at McLeod Park. Bill Germaine had a great weekend at the plate, driving in a total of seven runs over the first three games, including four in the first victory alone. Josh Wray also had four RBIs in that game. And on the mound, Jon Bauer improved to 4-0 on the season after scattering three hits and one walk over seven innings. Bauer also struck out seven and has yet to allow an earned run this season.

community service hours, retirees or the family who likes to get involved.” Volunteers of any age or background can take part in this event in areas such as: scorekeeping, security and parking, transportation, tickets and gates, field crew, and more.Any youth born between 1998 and 2001 who is a member of Softball BC will have the opportunity to volunteer as an official Scotiabank Canadian Open Fastpitch Batgirl and work closely with an elite fastpitch team throughout the tournament. More details will be available at the next volunteer information meeting on Tuesday, May 1 at 7 p.m. at the Sandman Signature Hotel in Langley at 8828 201 St. Interested volunteers can also complete a volunteer application form located

online at http://canadianopenfastpitch. com/volunteers/new. Each volunteer must commit to working a minimum of 20 hours during the event. In exchange for their time, each volunteer will receive free admission to all playing venues, one complimentary item of event apparel, and one complimentary meal per volunteer shift worked. The event is devoted to providing young, high-caliber female athletes the opportunity to expand their potential and ability by fielding elite level fastpitch teams, offer exposure to potential university and college scholarships, provide a source of inspiration and mentorship to the youth of the sport and provide an entertaining, fun-filled sporting experience for the Scotiabank Canadian Open Fastpitch spectator.
