Kinder Morgan Canada announced on April 11 that it will seek to twin its Trans-Mountain Pipeline between northern Alberta and Burnaby. The twinning would mean a huge increase in the amount of crude the pipeline carries, and in the number of oil tankers passing through local waters each year. This second instalment of a three-part Black Press series looks at the risks involved. Next week: A look at the politics of the pipeline, and alternatives.

What’s coming

WANDA CHOW Black Press

Down pipe the

Ask an environmentalist what they think of the potential for a massive crude oil spill in Burrard Inlet and invariably they bring up the Kalamazoo River near Marshall, Michigan. That’s where in July 2010 an Enbridge pipeline ruptured, releasing about 19,500 barrels (3.1 million litres) of oil into the nearby river, making it the largest inland oil spill in the history of the U.S. Midwest. More than 18 months later, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency continues to struggle to clean up the mess. So what does an inland oil spill 3,000 kilometres away have in common with what could happen here in Greater Vancouver? Well, the spectre of an oil spill is being raised in light of Kinder Morgan Canada’s proposal to twin its Trans Mountain pipeline that stretches from Edmonton to Burnaby. The project is aimed at exports of bitumen crude oil from the Alberta oil sands to China, on supertankers that could hold as much as one million barrels.

‘WORST CRUDE

OF

ALL’

MARIO BARTEL/Black Press file

The common denominator is bitumen crude, a less refined crude thick as molasses that contains additives to allow it to flow freely enough to travel through pipelines. “Of all the crude oil in the world, bitumen from the tar sands is the worst of all,” said Rex Weyler, co-founder of Tanker Free B.C., a group that wants to see oil tankers banned from B.C.’s coast. When bitumen hits water, it separates into gases, creating a toxic cloud that includes toluene and benzene, known carcinogens, Weyler said. Indeed, in Michigan, a large area near the spill was evacuated and hundreds of residents complained of headache, nausea and respiratory symptoms consistent with exposure to crude oil, according to a report by Michigan health officials. What doesn’t go into the air sinks to the bottom of the river or ocean and “suffocates all the fundamental biological organisms at the root of the food chain,” Weyler said. Those organisms, which consume dead matter in the water, provide food for the surviving fish, but they won’t survive for long with the food chain disrupted. As for the cleanup and economic cost of a spill in Burrard Inlet, he noted that estimates for the BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico are in the $50 billion range including the cost of compensating the fishing industry and tourism losses. Based on that, Weyler estimates the cost of a spill here, with potential impact on tourism, fishing and shellfish industries, and the damage to Stanley Park, to be upwards of $40 billion. And that’s if you can find those responsible to pay up, he noted. While BP and Enbridge were clearly the polluters who had to pay for the cleanups and other costs, in the case of an oil tanker, they’re operated at an “arm’s length distance” from the oil companies themselves, said Weyler.

Protestors from the Wilderness Committee were at the gates of Kinder Morgan’s Westridge oil terminal in Burnaby in August 2011, to protest the company’s plans to expand its Alberta-B.C. pipeline.

Taxpayers are covered, but wildlife is not from PAGE 1

The tankers are “owned independently and registered in ports of convenience,” often under numbered companies managed overseas by lawyers. “They can disappear and their only asset is the ship.” In that case, those billions of cleanup costs will have to shouldered by the taxpayers of British Columbia, he said.

TAXPAYERS NOT

ON THE

HOOK

Not so, says Bruce Turnbull of Western Canada Marine Response Corporation (WCMRC), formerly known as Burrard Clean. All such vessels which sail into Canadian waters must have an arrangement with a spill response organization which, on the West Coast, is WCMRC. The tankers, which must be double-hulled, are brought into Vancouver harbour by local pilots who know about any hazards that need to be avoided. If there is a spill, and the tanker’s owner walks away, the ship would be seized and WCMRC would tap in to the insurance that tanker companies are required to purchase in advance, Canada’s Ship-source Oil Pollution Fund, Turnbull said. If that insurance runs out, a similar international fund is used. “The taxpayer is not on the hook.” WCMRC, which is primarily funded by four major oil companies (Imperial Oil, Shell Canada, Chevron and Suncor) and pipeline operator Kinder Morgan, responds to an average 20 spills a year, he said. They range from small gasoline spills from power boats and incidents involving canola oil, to the 100,000-litre spill resulting from the 2007 rupture of Kinder Morgan’s pipeline in North Burnaby, the largest Canadian incident it has responded to on the West Coast. As for how much oil is typically recovered, Turnbull said it’s not 100 per cent, due to a number of variables including evaporation. “Recovery is only part of an overall strategy. Protection and mitigation of damage to resources is a priority.” Generally, the response involves containing spills with booms and collecting the oil using skimmers. If the responsible party requests a wildlife rescue response, as Kinder Morgan did in 2007, WCMRC may manage it or hire a professional organization to work within the response command structure.

WILDLIFE OUT

OF THE

EQUATION

The problem is, not all responsible parties choose to respond to oiled wildlife, and there are no laws forcing them to do so, said Coleen Doucette, vice-president of the

Oiled Wildlife Society of B.C. “The way policies are written in Canada, wildlife is not part of the environment, no one has to clean up wildlife.” But left out in the wild, not only will oiled birds, otters, seals and other wildlife die, they’ll likely be eaten by predators, continuing to contaminate the environment long after the spill is over, noted Doucette, who is also chair of the animal care committee at Wildlife Rescue Association of B.C. Doucette worked for Focus Wildlife, one of only three professional wildlife rescue companies in North America, during cleanup of the 2007 spill in Burnaby. In addition to animals such as seals and otters, waterfowl are perhaps most commonly affected by a spill because the oil

removes the natural waterproofing of their feathers, leading to hypothermia. She has helped provide wildlife rescue response in Alberta after spills of bitumen which she says is far worse than conventional crude. “It burns the skin dramatically, much more than a product that’s started to be refined.” Bitumen does more damage and requires more skill to address through a more expensive, specialized and lengthy process, Doucette said. “In a country where there are no regulations, proper funding is not alloted for wildlife response, it makes it very difficult to now look at needing a more complicated process for rehabilitation when we don’t even have the funding for basic oiled wild-

life rehabilitation.” As it is, she estimated wildlife rehabilitation typically costs one to five per cent of overall cleanup costs of an oil spill, if it’s done at all. In addition to a lack of local crews trained in oiled wildlife response, local animal welfare and rescue groups simply don’t have the space needed to accommodate large numbers of contaminated wildlife during rehabilitation, she added. What’s needed is a single large building with good ventilation, and adequate water, electricity and open space. “All those things are really hard to find in one place, oddly enough.”

B.C. Chamber backing pipe from PAGE 3

PIPELINE TRACK RECORD ‘EXCELLENT’ When it comes to economic impact of a major oil spill in Burrard Inlet, the local business community isn’t willing to speculate. Peter Xotta, vice president of planning and operations for Port Metro Vancouver, Canada’s largest and busiest port, said such a spill hasn’t happened here so it doesn’t have a point of reference to speculate on. The port is involved in moving $75 billion worth of goods annually and is responsible for 129,000 jobs across Canada, 80,000 of those in the Lower Mainland, and $10 billion in GDP, Xotta noted. “So, as relates to our overall mandate, obviously our objective is to make sure all of that activity continues and that there isn’t disruption to any one of those supply chains.” The port has been handling oil tanker traffic for more than 50 years and has some of the most stringent operating practices of vessels around such tankers, he said. When asked if an oil spill would prevent cruise ships and cargo ships from coming and going in Vancouver harbour, Xotta said, “An incident of any kind involves notification to

John Winter, president of the B.C. Chamber of Commerce, was bullish in support of the proposed pipeline expansion. “The track record is excellent,” he said.

“Most of the people opposed to it never knew there was tanker traffic in the first place.” He’s not concerned about potential risks of the proposal. “There’s risk in doing everything,” he said. “If measures are put in place to minimize those risks to the extent possible I would think the review bodies will have no choice but to approve it.” As for whether the chamber would have concerns about the economic implications of a decision to to allow the TransMountain pipeline expansion or not, Winter replied,“Only if it’s turned down.”

Environmental heroes sought

More oil pipeline details revealed

FRANK BUCHOLTZ Times Reporter

The Times has been able to gather more information about the route of the Trans-Mountain pipeline through Langley, thanks to a former TransMountain employee who provided the newspaper with some additional details. The Langley resident was first employed to keep the pipeline right-of-way clear of brush, and later worked for the company in maintaining the pipeline through the Fraser Valley, and to its terminal on Burnaby Mountain. From there, some crude oil is shipped by tanker, some goes to the Chevron refinery in Burnaby, and refined fuels go to other oil companies and to a jet fuel terminal at the Vancouver Airport.

In Langley, the pipeline comes from the east near 56 Avenue, adjacent to the Gloucester Industrial Park. It crosses north Langley, north of the freeway, diagonally in a northwest direction. It remains on the high ground for most of its route through Langley, and crosses 240 Street near 80 Avenue. It continues on the high ground, crossing the CN Rawlison rail line that connects the main CN line to the CP line to Deltaport near 232 Street. From the Rawlison rail line, the pipeline cuts to the northwest, and is adjacent to the well-known “castle” on Rawlison Crescent, once owned by the late Fritz Ziegler. Just west of there, the pipeline crosses the Salmon River and then cuts through Belmont Golf Course. From there it continues in a north-

westerly direction to Walnut Grove, where it goes through a number of residential neighbourhoods. Much of the right-of-way in Walnut Grove is occupied by walking and cycling trails. West of 202 Street, the pipeline goes through commercial and industrial areas and enters Surrey near 94 Avenue in the Port Kells industrial area. In Surrey, it remains north of Highway 1 until about 108 Avenue. It crosses the freeway in an area that is now subject of heavy construction,as a result of the Port Mann Bridge project and freeway widening. It crosses the Fraser River just to the west of the new Port Mann bridge. A twinned pipeline, proposed by Kinder Morgan, may follow a new route to avoid urban areas, the company has said.

Nominations are now open for the 2012 Langley Environmental Hero Awards. Nominations should be submitted by Tuesday, May 1. This is the sixth time that the Langley Environmental Hero awards will be presented. The last awards were presented in 2010, when Doug McFee of the Salmon River Enhancement Society and Bruce Van Garderen of Maples Discovery Gardens received the awards. The awards were started by MP Mark Warawa in 2006. He served for several years as parliamentary secretary to the minister of the environment. He continues to be involved in the program.

have in the district, the response is only 673 which is about 3.5 per cent of the population.That’s hardly a resounding vote,” said McVeigh. She said she’d like to see a whole fresh look at the school calendar, calling the current system out-dated. “I look to the balanced calendar at Douglas Park Community School and see its success as an example,” she said. Douglas Park carries school through to July. Meanwhile, Abbotsford trustees have had to put their decision on a two-week spring break on hold because they aren’t sure they are allowed to add extra minutes onto teachers’ day without getting their approval under the province’s new Bill 22. Districts that have approved a two-week vacation have relied on a portion of the School Act to go outside of the collective agreement and add extra minutes. However, Bill 22 has repealed that section. “The Langley Teachers’ Association is good with the calendar we have passed but we are still uncertain if there will be a different directive from the BCTF,” said Langley School District spokesperson Sandy Wakeling.

THEY SAY

Some mixed messages

A gift from Canucks

M

onday night’s Alberta election results can be interpreted in numerous ways, but a few overarching messages sent by voters in our neighbouring province are pretty obvious. One is that the election results are determined by voters, not pollsters and media pundits. Most pundits and pollsters were predicting a Wild Rose Party win. Instead, the ruling Progressive Conservatives won a comfortable majority of seats, although the vote totals were closer than the seat total. It is obvious that most voters were not stampeded by the polls, and in fact most polls had suggested that there were a large number of undecided voters, even in the last week of the campaign. Many of them clearly chose to go with the party they were familiar with, as opposed to a new and untried approach to governing. Another message is that Albertans are a mixed group of people, and are not quite the one-size-fits-all rednecks that they are often portrayed as. In fact, the Liberals and NDP continue to attract committed voters and win seats in each provincial election, and some of their usual supporters switched to the PCs to prevent Wild Rose from getting more of a foothold. This also highlights the fact that Albertans have some of the same concerns that their B.C. neighbours do. Yes, the oil industry is the dominant factor in Alberta’s economy and political life, but many Albertans have serious concerns about some aspects of the oil and gas industry. A third message is that candidates who make off-the-wall comments can do a lot of damage to a party brand. Two Wild Rose candidates made comments that at the very least angered a large number of people, and those comments were pondered by many potential voters. In the end, they cost the party votes. The BC Liberals may be hoping that B.C. voters will offer them the vindication the PCs in Alberta received. While that is not impossible, the Liberals here have a much steeper hill to climb. They are much further behind in the polls than the Alberta PCs were, and they are facing two opposition parties with significant voter support. In addition, they have lots of baggage, which many voters have grievances with. B.C. politics is also much more of a hardball match than in Alberta. After all, the prairie province has only changed governments three times in 107 years.

ell, that was quick. Like removing a bandage with a mighty yank rather than a slow, painful pull, perhaps the Vancouver Canucks’ early exit from the NHL playoffs is for the best. Despite finishing the regular season with the most points, a second straight run at the Stanley Cup didn’t seem assured. Questions about the ability of goaltender Roberto Luongo to win big games lingered. The team’s scoring seemed to dry up late in the season. Its power play had been dormant since January. And coach Alain Vigneault’s penchant for juggling line combinations nearly every game meant you couldn’t tell who would be playing with whom without a program. The reunion of the Sedin twins in game four against the Los Angeles Kings after Daniel had missed more than a month with a head injury gave the Canucks a win and their fans a glimmer of hope. But in the end, it just delayed the inevitable. Now while mighty hockey markets like Nashville, St. Louis and possibly even Phoenix battle on for hockey’s biggest prize, the local airwaves, bar stools and sports pages are alive with second guessing and speculation about the future of various Canucks players, the coach, even the general manager. The Canucks may not have given us the drama and excitement of another Stanley Cup run, but pause for a moment to think about what they have given us. Instead of being cooped up inside through May and early June watching hockey games, we’ll be able to enjoy our spring evenings in the garden or on the patio. Police can keep their riot shields and batons in storage. Businesses in downtown Vancouver won’t have to stockpile plywood to protect their windows. We can be spared the sight of those ubiquitous car flags flapping in the breeze. Thank you Vancouver Canucks for breaking our hearts yet again. And giving us our spring back. —Burnaby News Leader The Langley Times is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry.

Politicians put taxpayers into debt Editor: Langley Township council is borrowing $43 million for water and roads. Now of course we need water and roads, which is the primary infrastructure function of council and should have priority status. This council knew the $43 million item was coming up before they got us in real deep long-term debt just a few weeks ago, with eight new full-time firefighters and fire hall renovations to accommodate them. The fire department expansion was not urgent and should not have been done at this time, but they don’t care. It has since been revealed that the firefighters’ union, International Association of Fire Fighters, became politically involved in the last campaign. It was lobbying, soliciting, campaigning and donating to Kim Richter’s and other councillors’ election campaigns. Do you think the firefighters expected such expeditious quidpro-quo co-operation? Now all of a sudden Richter and a few other councillors are concerned with debt levels? Yeah right, and we should believe they are serious? Peter Fastspender of the TransLink Mayors’ Council voted for us South of Fraser tax-suckers to subsidize the $1.4 billion Evergreen Line in Port Moody and Coquitlam, in exchange for a few bus routes to Langley. Now TransLink is reneging on the bus routes. This is like your broker negotiating a 50-year, 10 per cent mortgage on your behalf, then expecting ego-stroking praise. Would any real business hire such a person in an administrative capacity? Christy Clark, the BC Liberal Party premier, talks a big streak like “if it’s not good for families, we won’t do it.” Then she proceeds to do the exact opposite, by rapidly spending and giving away billions, getting us and future generations up to our eyeballs in debt. She is doing this to boost her image in the polls? Hello, what

Miranda GATHERCOLE/Langley Times

Work continues on the park and ride lot adjacent to Highway 1, even though TransLink has put bus service across the Port Mann Bridge on hold. planet is she from? When you get taxpayers in debt, it is the same thing as devaluing the dollar. You have to pay the debt part first, leaving the rest of the dollar short. Actions speak louder than words. We taxpay-

ers are getting really fed up of these politicos pretending they care about debt, when they keep voting to do more spending at every opportunity. They are using us as an ATM. Roland Seguin, Langley

Cut bus service in Vancouver and Burnaby Editor: This letter is to address the “May be time to leave Metro — Froese’s reaction to bus freeze” and “CEO (TransLink) won’t discuss fairness issue,” (The Times, April 19). It was with frustration I read about TransLink’s decision to punish the South Fraser side of the Lower Mainland by pulling the soon-tobe rapid bus service from Langley. How convenient that TransLink’s CEO has a tantrum when he doesn’t get the funding he demands, and decides to yank new projects instead of looking at new ways to find funding within the existing system. I have a solution for Ian Jarvis. Cut the bus service in Richmond, Vancouver, Downtown Vancouver and Burnaby in half. If you reduce that service, then you will free up funding to

allow for rapid bus service across the Port Mann Bridge, plus other projects in the queue. This makes sense to everyone living south of the Fraser River, since we contribute huge amounts of cash towards TransLink’s piggy bank. Not only would this be fair, it would be the right thing to do. Stop providing the north side of the Fraser River with Cadillac service, while the rest of the Lower Mainland gets nothing more than the burden of paying for it. To both mayors, Jack Froese and Peter Fassbender, seriously look at opting out of TransLink. Get together with Delta, Surrey, White Rock and Abbotsford mayors and start discussions on how to create our own transportation services.

We are tired of being held financial hostage to a TransLink board that takes care of the needs of themselves and the north side of the river, while the rest of us are ignored. And on a final note, the other day I took SkyTrain from King George Station to Waterfront. As I was paying for my ticket, I lost count of how many people walked right past the pay booths and just got on the train. Millions of dollars are lost as hundreds of people ride for free, and then TransLink looks to the commuters who drive cars to pay for that loss. I for one, am tired of paying into a system that doesn’t serve me or my fellow neighbours living south of the Fraser River. Sandra Steffan, Langley

Too many TransLink shortfalls Editor: Of course the mayors should fear downsizing in transit. TransLink has decided that if the suburbs don’t provide them with any more money, it is going to make all kinds of threats. That’s how TransLink gets its money. Make a promise, find out it doesn’t have the money, ask for more money, then take away the promise when it doesn’t get what it asks for. Shake your heads folks. TransLink needs to start looking at its downfalls and fixing them — like making people who use the system, pay for the system. We out here in ‘South of the Fraser’ have little or no services, so why are we subsidizing those who do have almost free access to transit services? Why is it that those of us out here ‘South of the Fraser’ are subsidizing salaries of over $100,000 a year for TransLink police officers who do not work south of the Fraser? Why are we paying for huge bonuses to senior executives of TransLink, and for what? Why do we not have transit services that have value to those of us out here who may want or need those services? I’m starting to think that it’s time that South of the Fraser developed its own transit system, and stop funding a system that cares more about giving money to the already salary-bloated executives than providing services to the people who are paying their salaries. And the mayors need to take heed of that as well. They are, after all, paid by the taxpayer. D. Atkinson, Langley

This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property tax appeal process has cost the City of Langley twice the usual amount in income, leaving the municipality $100,000 shy of its budget for 2012. Council was told on Monday â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as it gave third reading to the bylaw which will allow the City to levy taxes based on the budget passed two months ago â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that the number of successful appeals has effectively doubled the amount of money lost to the City through the process this year over last. Normally,successful appeals reach about $50,000, said Darrin Leite, the Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director of finance. The Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s practice is to keep $100,000 in its tax stabilization reserve, so the shortfall wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t affect this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget. However the depleted account will have to be replenished through the 2013 budget, Leite told council. Councillor Dave Hall questioned where the money will come from to replenish the reserve. And what will happen if the number of successful appeals continues to grow, he wondered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we generate a surplus in a given year, why not build a a greater reserve rather than raising taxes in the ensuing year?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Surpluses now go into a reserve,â&#x20AC;? noted Councillor Gayle Martin.â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is there any reason they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t (be moved) into a tax stabilization? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We could do that at any time and we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily have to raise taxes to pump up the reserve,â&#x20AC;? she said. continued, PAGE 11

Appeal surge could be start of trend from PAGE 10

The money to re-establish the tax stabilization reserve does, in fact, come from a tax surplus fund, said Leite. He could not say why the appeal process had resulted in a doubling of the amount this year over last.

“It’s a big jump, but we don’t determine who appeals,” said Leite. “It depends on which properties are being appealed, the value of the properties and (appeal) board’s decisions.” This year, there were two properties which, together, accounted

for $25,000 in successful appeals, Leite noted. Whether the significant increase over last year marks the beginning of a trend and the stabilization fund will need to be increased is something the City will have to take under advisement, he added.

Board chair Wendy Johnson explained that the Ministry of Education approves capital funding for a school at a certain size and if Langley fights the numbers, the province will just give the money to the next community with their hand out. The ministry controls when and, to some extent, where schools are built in a district. According to Skinner, Langley is behind in schools. Parents of R.C. Garnett and Langley Meadows who attended the meeting agreed, saying they don’t understand why another elementary school isn’t built on the slope when the area

Other parents wanted to see equity of resources, like books and computers, provided to schools across the district, not based on how much an individual PAC can pay for. Others wanted to make sure special education is a priority and some wanted to see an expansion of Mountain’s honours (International Baccalaureate) program into other schools.

Boy burned at day camp Mom hopes her son’s story will open up talks about staff training MONIQUE TAMMINGA Times Reporter

When Jodie Bradshaw brought her son to a day camp last Christmas at the Walnut Grove Community Centre, it was a great relief that her seven-year-old would have fun while she went to work. But that’s not how the day would go and the nightmare that followed has led her to sue the Township. Her son ended up getting second degree burns to his leg from hot chocolate he was served. In “snack time” her son was served a snack and the hot drink. But the drink was hotter than it should have been, said Bradshaw. He spilled some of the drink on his thigh when he was taking a sip. The hot drink spilled through his jeans, causing his skin to burn and blister. “It was horrible,” said Bradshaw. “It covered six inches of his thigh. It was very painful for him.

“I know everyone makes mistakes, but what if it was his face?” Staff at the day camp called Bradshaw at work to tell her about the burn. “They said they had put ice on it but it was blistering,” she said. She rushed there and took her son to a clinic where he was treated. He was up all night in pain for three nights with raw, blistered skin. The burn has healed, although there is still a scar, she said. Bradshaw is recently widowed so this was a trauma on top of what her son is already going through. “He won’t go near hot drinks. He’s still pretty upset about it,” she said. She is hoping her story will open up some discussion about training of staff working at community centre day camps. “Are there regulations? Is there training?Do they have their Food Safe if they are serving snacks?” she asks. “My son is seven.

A seven-year-old Langley boy suffered second degree burns when hot chocolate served to him at a day camp spilled through his jeans and caused blistering. His mom wants to see better staff training at camps. He doesn’t know to say no to hot chocolate if it’s too hot.” She claims her questions to the Township about what training is required were not answered fully. David Leavers, director of the Township’s parks and recreation department, said he couldn’t speak to Bradshaw’s situation because it’s before the courts now. He did say there is a standard snack break at day camps. There are

leadership qualifications for staff to be hired to run the camps. He also said the lifeguard staff at Langley’s community centres have First Aid, should it be required. “They are good people that work at these camps but they may not be trained,” said Bradshaw. She is suing the Township for her son’s pain and suffering and for work missed to take care of him in the days following.

Earlier this year, Township council approved giving $2,500 to help the Aldergrove Trolley Association set up a business plan as it embarked on bringing a unique and much-needed transportation service to the town. Run by the ATA, a non-profit corporation, a trolley bus would provide commuters, shoppers and workers, with links to areas where service is scant or nonexistant. Stops would include Gloucester Estates, Greater Vancouver Zoo, Pioneer Park on 0 Avenue, home to 450 residents, and the town’s two main shopping areas. However, the trolley bus engine is still idle, stalled by a difference of opinion

regarding terms of reference, leaving the business plan still up in the air. Council voted on Monday to refer the issue to staff for an update from the ATA on the status of the business case analysis. Not for the first time, council expressed annoyance at TransLink which is dragging its feet on a market research plan that would gauge potential ridership. The Township has frequently voiced concern over the lack of service to Aldergrove, including the large employment centre of Gloucester Estates. “The report from TransLink is long overdue,” said Councillor Bob Long. Council agreed with his motion that calls on staff to contact the transportation authority about the ridership study.

A trolley system, similar to one in Langford on Vancouver Island, has been proposed for Aldergrove, but plans have ground to a halt.

AND IMPLEMENT COMMON RATES On April 11, 2012, the FortisBC Energy Utilities applied to the British Columbia Utilities Commission to amalgamate their natural gas utilities across the province and to implement common rates and services across their service areas starting January 1, 2014. Currently, FortisBC Energy Utilities is made up of three separate natural gas companies, operating in six service areas. The companies have their own services, service agreements (tariffs) and rates. If approved, the application would combine the three companies into one, under a single tariff, with common rates for the various regions. This Application has different implications for customers in each service area. If approved, customers in the Vancouver Island and Whistler service areas will see rate decreases, while customers in the Lower Mainland, Columbia, Inland, and Fort Nelson service areas will see an overall rate increase.

Victim home recovering

A 31-year-old Langley man had to be airlifted to hospital for what appeared to be life threatening injuries after being hit by pickup truck while crossing the road in Aldergrove last Saturday. Langley RCMP was called to a pedestrian struck in the 1800 block of 264 Street at around 4:30 p.m. Thus far, the investigation suggests that a southbound Ford pickup struck the man as he ran across the road. The explanation for suddenly running across the road remains unknown, said police spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks. Police believe the

pedestrian may have been under the influence of alcohol. The pickup truck was towed from the scene and will ºundergo a mechanical inspection. The pedestrian was released from hospital on Tuesday and returned home to convalesce. ICARS (Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service), which investigates all vehicle collisions that result in serious injury or death in the RCMP detachment areas within the Lower Mainland District, was called to attend and assist with the investigation.

Firefighters, council share table Twice in the past month, members of Township council and some senior staff have broken bread with its unionized employees. Earlier, it was CUPE members who joined

council at the dinner break between the regular Monday afternoon and evening meetings. On Monday, it was the turn of firefighters who belong to the IAAF. The purpose,

explained administrator Mark Bakken, is to foster a greater understanding of the function and direction of the unions. The informal event is co-ordinated by the executives of the union.

A total of 30 vendors will be set up in the gymnasium at R.E.

Times Reporter

Caring for a child with special needs comes with many challenges which are hard to face alone. Hayley Nimmo knows this from personal experience. Five years ago when she went searching for a support group to provide help and comfort for her family and her two-year-old son with special needs, she left feeling depressed and unsupported. This inspired her to start the Fraser Valley FiT Network Society (Keeping Families in Touch), a volunteerrun non-profit support group that provides education and events for families with children that have special needs. Now after four years of delivering care to their members, they are opening their doors to the public for a large educational fair. The Alternative Therapy Fair, being held on May 2, will provide

motivation and find encouragement. For a lot of families who have kids that are not necessarily diagnosed with special needs but could really benefit from these therapies, this is a great place to come.” The FiT Network hosts a variety of social and educational events for its members, including monthly networking meetings with guest speakers, casual coffee nights for parents to socialize and family fun events such as picnics and dances. Since its beginning, the FiT Network has helped hundreds of people in situations like Nimmo’s. When her son Beckem was born in 2005, he was given only three weeks to live. He has many disabilities, including an undiagnosed neuromuscular disorder, severe scoliosis, global developmental delay and autism. Despite his challenges, Nimmo says his incredible spirit never ceases to amaze

and inspire her. “He inspired the entire FiT Network. Prior to me having a child with special needs, I was very ignorant of this community because they frightened me, honestly. Without Beckem the FiT Network would

have never existed and it has helped so many.” The Alternative Therapy Fair is on Wednesday, May 2 from 7 to 9 p.m. at R.E. Mountain Secondary, 7755 202A St. Admission is free. For more information visit www.fitnetworksociety.com.

What to do with Dog Poop? Compost it! by

Sarah Harvey

Harvey Pet Food & Supplies

Doggy Dooley is the original dog waste disposal system that uses an in-ground method for easy cleanup of dog waste. Your Doggy Dooley is simple to install and ends your dog waste problems. Having the new Doggie Dooley systems, you can forget doing the messy and irritating waste disposal activity that most pet owners don’t want to do. Simply use the no bending or stooping scooper to place the elimination in the in-ground Doggie Dooley. With the use of environment-friendly additives, the waste breaks down easily without releasing any foul odour. Doggie Dooley utilizes non-toxic enzymes and bacteria to liquefy the dog waste for ground consumption. It works like a home septic system by using pet waste digester to turn the waste into a ground absorbing liquid that is beneficial to most soils except heavy clay. How to select a site for the doggie Dooley? The Doggie Dooley can almost go anywhere in your backyard. It is important to keep away from tree roots, vegetable gardens and fruit trees. It is a good idea to use some sort of markers like a flower garden or place some mulch around the Dooley to help avoid confrontations with the lawn mower. If you are on well water make sure to check with the township as how far digesters should be placed from the well. It is a good idea to place the Dooley within reach of a hose because it is necessary to add water frequently. Try to locate an area of your yard normal drainage to maximum results. Once the tank is installed to start the Dooley system first fill the tank with about 4 gallons of water mixed with 2 tbsp of the digester powder (six month supply of the digester powder is included with the unit). Clean the yard of waste and drop into the tank. It is important to clean the yard daily or as regular as possible. Do not overload the tank with several days of waste at a time. It is important to add 1 gallon of water every time waste is added, and to add the digester powder on a weekly basis. The tank can also be used for biodegradable cat litter (swheatscoop, world best litter, clump’n’flush, feline fresh to list a few) or biodegradable poop bags since it is prohibited to throw pet waste in the trash. Do not put any clay litter in the digester. The Doggie Dooley is made from durable material. It will not break or crack in the cold weather or with normal use. The digester will slow down in the winter so it is recommended to add warm water.

Cell Towers: Regulation and Processes The federal government, through Industry Canada, is responsible for regulating radiocommunication. This includes approving each site on which radio apparatus, including antenna systems such as cell phone towers, may be located, based on Industry Canada’s general and specific technical requirements. In exercising its mandate, Industry Canada believes that it is important that antenna systems be deployed in a manner that considers local surroundings. In this regard, Industry Canada requires proponents of cell towers to follow local government policies with respect to public notification. In the Township of Langley, local requirements are contained in the Telecommunications Tower Master Plan Policy, which requires proponents to hold a community consultation meeting as part of the public consultation process. Residents with questions or comments about the proposed tower can make their views known through this public consultation process. Public input obtained by the proponents at the meeting is passed on to Township staff, for presentation to Township Council. Council does not have the authority to approve or reject cell tower applications. Council’s ability is limited to either objecting or not objecting to such installations in its referrals to Industry Canada. Council does not have legislated authority to do anything else. Should Council have no objection to the proposed installation, the proponent will be permitted by Industry Canada to proceed, subject to compliance with their requirements. In the event that Council expresses objections that are considered by Industry Canada to be relevant and the proponent still wishes to proceed with an installation, Industry Canada will make a final decision as to whether to: • approve the application; or • reject the application; or

Onni brings final high-rise project to Victoria Hill

Find the great outdoors at Parkside If you’re looking for amazing views, a family-friendly community and beautiful homes, look no further than Onni’s Parkside at Victoria Hill, now open for previewing. “You’d be hard-pressed to find something in New West like it,” says Onni’s Nick Belmar. Encompassing 226 one- and twobedroom condominiums and 22 townhomes, Parkside is the final high-rise tower in the Victoria Hill development. The 22-storey tower will offer beautiful views from every home, and the atmosphere is second-to-none. The Victoria Hill project has been in development for over a decade, and

will eventually include more than 1,200 homes set on 65 acres. More than 40 of those acres are green space. “Not a lot of projects can offer these natural amenities,” Belmar says. The building is surrounded by trails, and Queens Park and Glenbrook Ravine are next door. When completed Parkside will include amenities such as a chef ’s kitchen, outdoor pool, community garden and a fitness studio. “(For) brand-new construction in a community like this, the price is unbeatable,” Belmar says. Homes start at $249,900. For more information visit onni.com/parkside or call 604-523-0733.

European-style living

Leave the car behind at Morgan Crossing by Kerry Vital

When you live at South Surrey’s Morgan Crossing, loneliness is a thing of the past. With more than 60 shops and services right outside your front door, including Winners, Steve Nash Sports Club and Thrifty Foods, there is literally something for everyone, and you’ll rapidly run out of excuses for being a couch potato. Creating a community feel is the core of the entire concept, says Bryan Woolley of Fingerprint Strategies. Developed by Larco Investments, the company behind the Village at Park Royal, Morgan Crossing has the feel of a European-style village. One of the advantages in living in Morgan Crossing is its easy walkability and proximity to nearly everything you would need on a day-to-day basis. With shops, restaurants and fitness right outside your front door, it won’t take long to run your daily errands. “You can go in your pajamas and your slippers if you want!” laughs Woolley. Larco has been very successful in creating a village feel when you walk into Morgan Crossing, and Woolley says that there is a wide range of demographics buying homes, from 19-year-olds just starting out to seniors downsizing. “If you don’t like people, this isn’t the place to be,” Woolley says, adding that when you walk out your door, you’re almost guaranteed to meet someone that you know. The homes at Morgan Crossing are chic and modern, with generous patios and balconies, electric fireplaces and hardwood laminate floors throughout the main living areas. The kitchens feature European laminate cabinets, soft-close drawers (no more door slamming), granite and silestone countertops and an elegant glass or mosaic stainless-steel backsplash. The bathrooms are perfect for relaxing after a long day, with chic porcelain and ceramic tile flooring, granite and marble countertops and roomy tubs with hand-set ceramic tile surrounds. There are many different floorplans available, ranging from one to three bedrooms, some with dens. With the number of plans available, you will have no trouble finding the perfect home for you. Looking to be right in the middle of the action? Finding a home on the main street would work for you.

Perhaps a mountain view is your style? Morgan Crossing has several homes with that gorgeous scenery. “The biggest draw is the village,” Woolley says. “You’re not spending time going to the disparate pieces of your life ... it’s a more sustainable lifestyle. We don’t get too many people driving between stores.” One of the great things about living in Morgan Crossing is the variety of community events that are held frequently, including car shows, outdoor movie nights and festivals. The community is “so vibrant and interesting,” Woolley says. With the warmer weather on its way, he expects that the outdoor walkways will soon be bustling. Homes start at $234,900. For more information, visit morgancrossing.ca or call 604-582-1336.

If you don’t like people, this isn’t the place to be,” says Bryan Woolley of Fingerprint Strategies.

Submitted photos

There are plenty of things to do in Morgan Crossing, from checking out the latest styles to grabbing groceries for a casual dinner party. The homes at Morgan Crossing, including The Summit House, top, are elegant and modern, with plenty of outdoor space for entertaining.

Buy a Power Smart home, save three ways Save now, and save later: not many homes can promise you that. But when you buy a home from a Power Smart New Home Builder youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll save money, including reduced mortgage insurance and lower monthly bills. An EnerGuide label is your assurance that the home is independently rated to be energy-efďŹ cient. And donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget, an energyefďŹ cient home is more comfortable too. Layout, amenities, and those much-promoted granite countertops. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot to think about when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re buying a new home. But thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one feature that can make a positive difference to your wallet when you purchase, and every month that you own your home. Choosing a Power Smart New Home gives home buyers an easy way to find a home that is designed and built to save energy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buying an energy-efficient home is one of the best ways to maximize your home budget,â&#x20AC;? says Doug Overholt, representative for BC Hydroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Power Smart New Home program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you save on expenses, you can afford more mortgage. But many new homes are not built with energy efficiency in mind - so looking for the EnerGuide label is wise.â&#x20AC;? An EnerGuide rating is a standard measure of a homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s energy performance, rated on a scale of 0 to 100. A rating of 0 represents a home with major air leakage, no insulation and extremely high energy consumption. A rating of 100 represents a house that is airtight, well insulated, sufficiently ventilated and requires no purchased energy. The first benefit youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find is on your mortgage insurance: Power Smart New Homes qualify for a 10 per cent refund on Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation Mortgage

â&#x20AC;&#x153;

Buying an energy-efďŹ cient home is one of the best ways to maximize your home budget,â&#x20AC;? says Doug Overholt, representative for BC Hydroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Power Smart New Home program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you save on expenses, you can afford more mortgage.â&#x20AC;?

Insurance. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also save on your monthly bills. Homes that are rated EnerGuide 80 use at least 30 per cent less energy than an average new home. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s money in your pocket every month â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially great when energy costs are only expected to rise. Buy a home with a rating higher than EnerGuide 80, and save even more. The third benefit is resale value; as energy costs rise and green building continues to gain popularity, a home that demonstrates its efficiency will likely hold its value as compared to one that is inefficient with high monthly operating costs. There are other benefits as well, Overholt says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Builders who are smart about energy efficiency are adopting improved building practices and making use of new technologies. Their homes are more comfortable â&#x20AC;&#x201C; cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter â&#x20AC;&#x201C; while using less energy overall. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to add energy efficiency later; you need to get it built in from the start.â&#x20AC;? The Power Smart New Home program gives you an easy way to find houses, townhomes, and condos that are designed to save energy. For more information and to find your energy efficient dream home, check out the full listing of Power Smart New Home Builders and featured developments at bchydro.com/pshomes.

        

 NOT ALL NEW HOMES ARE BUILT WITH ENERGY EFFICIENCY IN MIND. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why it pays to look for a Power Smart New Home Builder when shopping for your next home. Power Smart New Homes are independently rated EnerGuide 80 or higher, which means they use at least 30% less energy than an average new home. And since theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re built the smart way, they stay cooler in the summer and cozier in the winterâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;all while saving you money for years to come.

Fanatics line up for hours for shoe sale MIRANDA GATHERCOLE Times Reporter

The early bird really does get the worm, according to hundreds of shopaholics who lined up outside the Langley Army & Navy Wednesday morning for opening day of the 63rd annual Legendary Shoe Sale. Mary Feist, the lucky lady at the very front of the lineup of 365 people, had been standing outside the front doors since 5:45 a.m. for the sale that didn’t start until 8 a.m. She drove down from Osoyoos specifically to shop for shoes. Sarah Johnston,Alyse Charlton and Melanie Charlton came in a close second, thanks to the kindness of their grandmother who arrived at 6 a.m. to hold a spot for them. Behind them, three girls from southern France who heard about the sale from the family they are staying with in Chilliwack. With all this hype, it’s no wonder this is the busiest day of the year at Army & Navy, said Sarah Cole, manager of the Langley location. “This is our Christmas,” she said, motioning to the crowd of women hurrying past her to browse through the collection of shoes.“We pump the

store up with stock and try to be as accommodating as we can.” Staff stayed behind long after closing hours Tuesday night to set up the displays of hundreds of shoes for the massive sale. Pallets were brought into the showroom during store hours the day before and were covered in caution tape to make sure no one got a sneak peak of the goodies inside. As soon as the doors opened Wednesday morning, a bee hive of women swarmed the shelves and filled their shopping bags and baskets to the rim with shoes. One Langley woman, Julianna McLean, figured she had at least 20 shoes in her basket. By the time 8:30 a.m. rolled around, many of the shelves already looked barren and the floor was littered with shoe rejects. This is Canada’s largest shoe sale and features 103,246 pairs of designer brands throughout Army & Navy’s six locations, all priced under $40. More than 3.15 million shoes have been sold during the sale since the event started 63 years ago. The madness continues until May 6 with new stock arriving daily. For more information, visit www.armyandnavy. ca.

Miranda GATHERCOLE/Langley Times

Hundreds of shoe shopaholics packed into the Langley Army & Navy store yesterday (Wednesday) morning for the 63rd annual Legendary Shoe Sale. The sale runs until May 6 with more than 100,000 pairs of shoes expected to be sold at the Army & Navy locations across the Lower Mainland.

‘The most dedicated guy I know’ GARY AHUJA Times Sports

G

eorge Bergen caught the coaching bug fairly early on. Still a high school student at Abbotsford’s MEI Secondary — and a standout basketball player — Eagles coach Jake Braun suggested that Bergen and his teammates, if they had any interest, work with some of the local elementary schools. “I really enjoyed teaching these young players and also just watching them get so excited about learning to play,” Bergen said. This was in 1969 and 43 years later, he is still going strong. On Saturday night (April 21), Bergen was presented with a Coaching Award of Excellence from Basketball BC at their Best of BC banquet, which was held at the Langley Events Centre. “These awards are a means of recognizing the outstanding level of dedication to excellence that has been demonstrated by these individuals,” said Lawrie Johns, the executive director of Basketball BC. Bergen was one of four recipients, along with Brittannia Secondary coach Mike Evans, UBC women’s coach Deb Huband, and Barnaby Craddock, the men’s coach at the University of the Fraser Valley. For his part, Bergen shrugs off the honour, saying that longevity is bound to be rewarded. “I always think if you have been doing it for as long as you have, someone along the way is going to recognize you with something,” he said. This past season, the Gators finished second at the B.C. AAA senior boys’ provincial championships, losing by a single point in the finals to the Terry Fox Ravens, the best-ever finish for a Langley school at the tournament. It is a far cry from when he arrived at the brand-new high school in 1991, and had to coax players to come out to join the fledgling basketball program. That first season, there were eight players and they managed a meagre four victories.

Gary AHUJA/Langley Times

Walnut Grove Gators coach George Bergen delivers some instructions to Charles Luu during the B.C. AAA senior boys provincial basketball championship final last month at the Langley Events Centre. Prior to that, Bergen had spent a decade building a powerhouse basketball program at Aldergrove Community Secondary. The key is commitment, both from players and coaches. “It is always a good situation when the level of commitment that a coach has is equalled by the players or is right up there,” Bergen said. “If the coach is not committed, then you can’t expect the players to be committed.” Bergen’s former players speak of his dedication, commitment and his passion. “He is the most dedicated guy I know and he loves the sport and seeing us improve,” said Ethan McKean, who played for Bergen these past two seasons and will suit up for Douglas College in the fall. “He is always in the gym in his free time when he can be spending it with his wife, or whatever.” “What stood out about him

McKean said that without Bergen’s push, he would not have become the player he is. “Basically, all my improvements from Grade 8 until now are on his shoulders,” he said. “I had to put in the work, but without him I don’t think I would be nearly as good as I am right now.” Dan Cooper played for Bergen from 2003 to 2007. By the end of high school, he had scholarship offers to play basketball, but chose to focus on his education, attending UBC. “He cares fiercely about his players,” Cooper said. “He expects hard work and execution but would never putdown or belittle a player. “He would force you to be humble in victory and proud in defeat.” Cooper also credited the coach for his improvements. “What made coach Bergen such a positive influence was all the countless hours he would

“He would force you to be humble in victory and proud in defeat.” Dan Cooper former gator player was how much he cared about the game, his players and all the fans that came out to watch,” said Kevin Jackel, a Gator under Bergen from 2005 to 2008. “The amount of time he put in was amazing to see.” Jackel went on to play two years at Douglas College after graduation.

spend with any player (who) was willing to improve their game,” Cooper said. “In the early years of high school, when I was a turnover machine, he would patiently teach and coach me ... always stressing that hard work would eventually pay off.” ••••• Bergen, who turns 60 later this year, sees plenty of similarities between his playing and coaching styles. “I was a passionate player,” he said. “That was a definite rub off of how I played.” He remembers his Grade 12 year, after the MEI Eagles won the Fraser Valley championship. “After we were done celebrating, I told the guys, ‘This is it, we are going to go all the way,’” he recalled. “I think the tone in my voice must have said to them, ‘Yeah, we are going to do it.’” Sure enough, the Eagles won the B.C. high school title. Following graduation, Bergen went to the University of Manitoba to continue playing the game. During his five years in Winnipeg, he also stuck with coaching, working with a local school’s Grade 8 team. Coaching is much like parenting. “You see your kids develop and grow up,” he marveled. “To see a kid pick something up and start practising it, there is something special about that. There is something about the development of a young child that is pretty special.” With more than 40 years coaching under his belt, Bergen said there are countless stories that have made him proud. “The most memorable stories are stories of successes where players developed in spite of adversities,” he said. “Kids who accepted the challenges and resolved themselves to believing they could do it.” Bergen has also coached two of his four kids at the high school level, and the youngest, Jared, is now a Gators assistant coach. Bergen also credits his wife, Gaye-Lynn, for all her support.

French hopes to help Canada A key member of the Trinity Western Spartans women’s volleyball team is off to Mexico where she hopes to help Canada qualify for the 2012 Summer Games in London. Kelci French was named to the Canadian women’s 12-player roster on Monday. The dozen players will compete in the

NORCECA Olympic qualification tournament next week (April 29-May 5) in Tijuana, Mexico. “Representing Canada in attempt to qualify for the Olympics is something that I’ve been dreaming about since I was a little girl,” she said. French will play setter for Canada. Last season with the Spartans, she largely played outside

hitter and was fourth on the team in points, averaging 2.25 per set. Canada is in a round robin pool with the Dominican Republic (ranked ninth), Puerto Rico (#19) and Honduras (#69). Canada is ranked No. 22. The top team in the eight-team event qualifies for the Olympics.

The Spirits’ Jacob Thorpe keeps his eye on the ball as he gets ready to swing for the fences at City Park over the weekend during his team’s T-ball game. The Spirits are one of seven U6 teams in the Langley Baseball Association.

It was a family affair in the women’s division at the Frontier City championships. And when the smoke had cleared Nicole Franks edged out her mom Peggy Franks for top spot at the shooting competition in Oklahoma. The Franks, along with other members of the Thunderbird Fast Draw Club were in Oklahoma for the competition April 14-15. Other results for the Langley-based club were Karen Robinson (fifth place, women’s division) and Dennis Robinson (sixth place, men’s division). The World Fast Draw Association also handed out hardware for the overall 2011 season. Nicole Franks was tops for the 10th time in the last 11 years. Peggy Franks was third and Karen Robinson fifth. On the men’s side, Dennis Robinson was seventh and Bob Franks was 11th and Ioan Nia was 13th.

Whalley Jr. Chiefs Max Robichaud slides back into first base as Langley Jr. Blaze’s Bayley Germain awaits the ball. The Blaze won both ends of the U16 B.C. Junior Premier Baseball League doubleheader, 6-5 and 5-4 at McLeod Park.

Jr. Blaze eke out pair of narrow victories The Langley Jr. Blaze came out on the right side of a pair of onerun games to push their early-season win streak to three games. The U16 baseball team edged the Whalley Jr. Chiefs 6-5 and 5-4 on Sunday at McLeod Park in B.C. Junior Premier Baseball League action. Langley improved to 3-1 with the results. In the opener, the Blaze scored the winning run in the bottom of the seventh inning when Matthew Reston hit a basesloaded single with one out. It was Reston’s second RBI of the game. Bayley Germain, who also had an RBI, pitched two innings for the win, allowing just one base runner on an error. In game two, Langley took advantage of four Whalley errors — while overcoming three mistakes of their own — to post their second straight onerun win. Eric Broatch earned the win, allowing three runs on three hits. Andre Pelletier picked up the save, pitching the final two and one thirds innnings. Danny Hollins, Shayne Clarke and Steven Young had the RBIs while Mason Verge scored twice, including the winning run.

CAR CARE & REPAIR Cleanliness not a priority for Canadian drivers

also contribute to a messy vehicle. Twenty-three per cent of Canadian drivers typically travel with pets, but only 14 per cent of those that do make an effort to limit dirty paw

prints, hair and unwanted slobber smears by putting them in a travel carrier. Despite a climate that lends itself to salt stains, tree sap, mud, bug splatters and bird droppings, Canadian drivers

don’t wash the exterior of their cars nearly as often as one might expect. Survey results show that only 51 per cent of Canadian drivers wash the exterior of their cars regularly (more than once a month). What many drivers don’t realize is that long-term exposure to dirt and grime damages the clear coat on a vehicle. This not only impacts its appearance but can trigger the occurrence of rust not to mention decreasing the value of a car.

Although Canadians have a reputation for being neat and tidy, focusing on cleanliness doesn’t appear to be a priority when it comes to their cars. Despite spending an average of five hours per week in a vehicle, Canadian drivers do not clean them regularly, with 73 per cent of respondents cleaning their car interiors less than once every few months according to a survey conducted by Canadian Tire. When compared with the amount of time spent cleaning the kitchen, vehicles are a neglected source of dirt and grime. Almost half of Canadian drivers surveyed (48.7 per cent) spend five to 10 hours a week preparing or eating a meal in the kitchen and 83 per cent of respondents clean them regularly (more than once a week). But when it comes to vehicles, 84 per cent of Canadian drivers eat and drink in their vehicles, yet one in five (18.7 per cent) don’t immediately clean food and drink spills, leaving them to attract bacteria. Beyond crumbs and spills, four-legged passengers can

Nov 19, 1926 – April 21, 2012 Iris Preston passed away peacefully April 21, 2012. Iris was born on November 19, 1926 in Edmonton to Frank and Margaret Wolfe. She attended Oliver and Victoria High Schools in Edmonton, then took a Home Economics degree at U.B.C., and was a member of Alpha Gamma Delta Sorority there. Following graduation, she worked as a dietitian at the University Hospital in Edmonton, the Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto, and was “Miss B. Wright” for the Woodward’s Stores. She met and married the love of her life, George Preston , in 1957. They then lived in Michigan and Boston for a time, where George worked for Manufacturers Life. Iris sometimes operated cooking schools for kids out of their home. While in Boston they welcomed children Richard, Diane and Robin into their home. They then moved back to B.C. and decided on Langley as their home, establishing the Preston Chev-Olds dealership in Langley. Iris was the mayor’s wife for several years and opened their home often to friends and family. They travelled extensively, helping out with seniors’ tours. Iris loved music. She loved to sing and play the piano. She often toured with the Vancouver Bach Choir. She was also a member of the Maysfield Singers, as well as the leader of a childrens choir called “The Gloworms”. She was a life member of the Langley Music School. She led a youth handbell group for many years, and then was the leader of the Barclay Bells, out of the Langley Seniors’ Centre. Iris was a great supporter of the Langley Community. She volunteered with the YMYWCA in Langley. She was active in the Daughters of The Nile as well as the K-Ettes and was also Senior Citizen of the Year. Iris was a Founding member of Langley Home Support. Iris is survived by children Diane Preston and Robin Ladouceur, daughter-in-law Jackie Preston (Kevin Mallar), grandchildren Marshal Geyer, Brooke-Anne Preston, Stephanie and Tyler Ladouceur and Austin Mallar, and sister Lois Field as well as numerous nieces and nephews and friends. She was predeceased by her husband George, son Richard, brothers Merrill and Evan Wolfe, and parents Margaret and Frank Wolfe. She is greatly indebted to her wonderful caregivers Shannon, Val, and Elaine, who gave her loving care in her home for 3 years. Memorial Service will be held at Christian Life Assembly at 21277 56th Avenue, Langley B.C. on Thursday May 3, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. Reverend Karen Verveda officiating.
