Stylist blown away by success MIRANDA GATHERCOLE Times Reporter
hen hair stylist Michelle Lisa Pargee heard her name announced as master colourist of the year at the 2009 Contessa Awards in Toronto, she was in shock. “It blew my mind,” she said. “To be honest, when they called me and told me that I was a semi-finalist I cried. I was like ‘oh my god, this is the highlight of my career’ and I was so excited.And then they told me I was a finalist and I think I almost passed out.” It was a significant achievement for the mother of four and owner of Milica Salon and Spa in Walnut Grove, who was an unknown name in the industry at that time. “I didn’t expect to win, because everyone that was there was really famous and really well known in the industry,” Pargee said.“I just felt so lucky to be there. When they announced my name I just started clapping thinking it was for somebody else, and my daughter was with me and she started beating me on the leg saying, ‘Mom that’s you, get up.’ I couldn’t walk.” This was just the beginning for Pargee. She also went on to win makeover colourist of the year at the 2009 Contessas (Canadian Hair Stylist of the Year awards) and a finalist spot representing Canada at the Colour Zoom competition in 2009.Then in 2010 she won master colourist of the year again and another spot representing Canada at the Colour Zoom competition. She also had nine Contessa finalist placements that year, breaking the all time record. Most recently, she won BC Stylist of the Year at the 2012 Mirror Awards and will be heading to London this October for the World Hair

With that she started Milica Salon 13 years ago in a small 1,500 sq. ft. studio in Langley. Beginning with a staff of just three, she quickly expanded until she was “bursting at the seams.” Now in a new 4,000 sq. ft. location at 20330 88 Ave. in Walnut Grove, Pargee employs a staff of 37 and runs a distinguished apprenticeship program. But a few years ago she began to get “bored” with styling and wanted to “change it up.” She decided to get more into the photography end of styling, where her true passion is. “It was reigniting what I really love to do,” she said. “As much as we love our salon guests, we tend to do repetitive things.When we do other’s hair it’s not about us, it’s about them and what they want us to do, and we need to listen and fulfill their vision of hair. But when you do your own creative work it’s about what’s in your head. Normally, we don’t get to do that, so it gives us that outlet.” Pargee paired up with photographer Greg Swales, a graduate of Langley Fine Arts, in 2008 to get some original photos done for the walls of her salon.They were so pleased with the results, they decided to submit them to the Canadian Hairstylist of the Year awards, where she won her first internationally acclaimed award in 2009. “The first year I went to the Contessas I was kind of overwhelmed because I had submitted photo never experienced anything Michelle Pargee (right) with model Aidan Morris at the Tokyo After Dark show, like that before,” Pargee said. put on as main stage entertainment for the Contessa23 Show in 2011. “They have all of the finalists names with their pictures Colouring Competition. morning to catch her flight to was never quite satisfied. on a board, and I was just But what no one knew Toronto.

Where’s Langley?’They had no idea, because all of the finalists are from Montreal or New York or Toronto.They’re all people who are well known and published. So it was quite funny because the next year when I went, and I won the second time, one of them actually came up to me laughing and said ‘well I guess we know who you are now.’ Pargee is currently serving as a Goldwell North American Guest Artist, which requires her to travel to at least 12 different cities around the world each year to teach workshops. This is in addition to running her own salon, working 30 hours a week with clients and raising her five-year-old and nine-year-old kids as a single mom. She says she is lucky to have her two grown children (ages 23 and 28) to help out, as her ex-husband is no longer in the picture. ••••• Pargee spent many years under the control of her husband, but it wasn’t until her career began to take off that she realized she couldn’t carry on with him. When she won the spot for Canada at Colour Zoom in 2009, her husband travelled with her to Las Vegas for the competition and was appalled at what he saw. “When I won that spot it really bothered him, because I won attention,” Pargee said.“And then when he came with me to Vegas, the attention disturbed him so much that he actually told me that I wasn’t allowed to do it anymore. “I found out at the same time that I had won the spot for the Hairdresser of the Year (Contessa) awards.We had tickets to go together, and he actually told me the night before that I couldn’t go. He said ‘you’re not going continued, PAGE 3

‘Skid row CEO’ pushes for change Former homeless man, drug addict planning cross-country tour in 2013 MONIQUE TAMMINGA Times Reporter
Monique TAMMINGA/Langley Times
Joe Roberts arrived at Langley’s Gateway of Hope homeless shelter on Tuesday pushing a shopping cart all the way from Calgary to raise awareness about at-risk youth. This is his dry run for his Push For Change tour across Canada next May.
A former homeless man turned successful business person pushed a shopping cart from Calgary all the way to Langley, arriving at the Gateway of Hope on Tuesday afternoon. Since July 1, Joe Roberts, who dubbed himself the “Skid row CEO” has been pushing a shopping cart more than 1,000 kilometers to raise money and awareness about youth at-risk of becoming homeless. He walked 1,171 kilometres in total, and 24 km per day, in some of the hottest weather, in the steepest terrain in Canada in hopes his “Push For Change” campaign would “inspire the country to look at the situation of homeless kids.” Many stops along the way have been at Salvation Army homeless shelters, he said.“The Salvation Army was there for me 25 years ago and here I am again being welcomed home,” said Roberts when he arrived at the Gateway
of Hope. “When we make friends we don’t want to lose them,” responded SA Major James Hagglund. Roberts will end this tour at the very shelter that helped him turn his life around 25 years ago, at the Downtown Eastside Salvation Army Harbour Light on East Cordova on Saturday. Roberts began using drugs at the age of nine, dropped out of school by 16 and started living in the Downtown Eastside at 18. After getting clean and sober, Roberts earned several degrees and took the business world by storm and now is a motivational speaker among other ventures. While successful himself, he felt he needed to do something to shine a light on a situation he is all too familiar with himself. “We don’t have illusions that we will end youth homelessness but we need to try,” he said. “These kids are worth it.They have possibilities. I know that because I was one of them.” Vancouver has the highest
youth homeless population in the country and very few shelters for them. A youth shelter was discussed for Langley but the logistics of housing teens is more challenging than adults, said the Salvation Army at the time. Roberts said the Aldergrove Neighbourhood Services is doing a lot to help youth here. The level of interest in his cause has been much more than he ever expected, he said. Many corporations and businesses have sponsored his cause and donations have been plenty, including the RV that has come along with him. Even the modified shopping cart was created by high school students his wife works with as a teacher. “When we go national we hope this groundswell of excitement will grow and inspire a nation. “We hope our Push For Change cross-country tour will inspire the nation like Terry Fox did.” Roberts plans to make a crossCanada tour next May, pushing his cart 8,000 kilometres from Newfoundland to Vancouver.

to win anyways and it’s a waste of money so you can’t go.’ “I actually snuck out of the house at 4:30 in the morning, brought my grown daughter with me, changed his ticket to her name and flew there.And I won. It was a month later that I told him to leave, because I realized that I could actually have a life.” Using the services of Ishtar Transition Housing Society for victims of relationship violence, Pargee was able to separate from her husband and begin the process of healing and rebuilding her social life. “For 10 years of my marriage I was hiding it, pretending he was perfect and I was happy and everything was great,” Pargee said.“I did that because I was embarrassed to admit that it wasn’t. Everyone looked at me and thought
of me as a business woman, you don’t want them to know that ‘gee my personal life sucks, my husband controls me.’ “What made me make the decision to leave was winning the award. My son was getting older and I didn’t want to raise him as an abuser, and I knew that’s what he would turn into if he stayed around his dad. I needed to change it.” Three years after separating, Pargee’s ex-husband sees the kids on supervised visits and is working on rebuilding relationships with them. “Everything happens for a reason and I wouldn’t have my kids without him,” Pargee said.“I don’t regret it, but now all I want is for him to be good to the kids.As long as he is a good dad, that’s all I care about. I support the kids, I don’t get child support, so I’m on my own there. But I don’t want it and I don’t

need it. I’m better to do it on my own.” ••••• Now in her 30th year of doing hair, Pargee is focusing on mentoring others in the industry. She plans to stop entering competitions. in order to help others reach that high level of achievement. She believes what has really set her apart from other stylists is her eye for what looks good in a fashion magazine, as opposed to a regular shot for hair. “Hair can get really weird. I think the creative stuff is awesome, but I always feel like my picture should look like it has come out of a page of Vogue magazine, and not just a hair shot,” Pargee said. “I think it should just be beautiful hair. Even if the colour is unusual, the photos should still look beautiful.You can make hair look crazy, but does it look pretty on the face of the
model you’re putting it on? Does it suit her?” These are the types of lessons she is now teaching to others through her salon and her Goldwell classes. “I will never do anything else,” she said.“I don’t think many people can say they love coming to work everyday after 30 years. I’m really lucky that I get to say that.” She also spends time giving back to her community, hosting two annual fundraisers for Ishtar House to help other families dealing with abusive relationships. But more than anything, Pargee is enjoying her newfound freedom. “I’m so independent and happy on my own,” she said.“I spent my entire life with a significant other, and I realize now that being on your own isn’t actually so bad. I can be in charge of my life. “My life is mine, and I love it.”

The nearly $30,000 raised by Langley residents to help a hospital in Zimbabwe have been put on hold after the main doctor was abruptly fired and told to leave the country by the leadership of the Salvation Army there. “We have not sent a penny to the hospital so now we will meet and talk with our donors to see where the funds should go,” said Langley Rotarian Brendan Martin who founded International Health Langley — a fundraising arm of the Rotary Clubs that help hospitals in poor nations. “I think the only way our project would go ahead is if Dr. Thistle was reinstated at Howard Hospital,” said Martin. Martin, who visited the African hospital in 2010 and had planned to go back this year, said he was shocked to see on the TV news what had happened to Thistle. On June 27, Paul
Dr. Paul Thistle (left) was abruptly fired and told to leave Zimbabwe by the leaders of the Salvation Army in the African country. Thistle spoke to Langleyites at the Salvation Army Gateway of Hope to raise funds for his mission work. It has been terribly tense at times for Thistle who has worked as the chief medical officer at the Howard Hospital for 16 years. A Salvation Army officer himself, Thistle recently clashed with the leaders of the SA church in Zimbabwe over fundraising dollars and where the money was going. “The Salvation Army leadership wants all the money raised to pass through their bank accounts in Harare, (Zimbabwe).
There was a pattern of the money not arriving at the hospital or arriving late,” said Martin. “Dr. Thistle is being punished for being a good steward of those funds. “He met with the Commissioner of Salvation Army about it last Friday and they told him he had 24 hours to get out of his place and 48 hours to get out of Harare.” Around 5,000 villagers demonstrated in support of Thistle. At least a dozen of those were arrested. Martin got word on Monday that Thistle had not taken his ordered flight back to Canada.

He didn’t want to abandon hospital staff who have been imprisoned for supporting him. “From what we understand the hospital is not functioning without him,” said Martin. “There are no doctors, many of the staff have left or been arrested and the volunteers are scared to go in. Patients are being sacrificed for the ends of this Salvation Army leadership.” In July, Martin said the four Rotary Clubs of Aldergrove/Langley were 55 per cent of the way towards reaching their goal of $105,000 for medical equipment for the

Woman convicted of Bontkes murder named Michelle Motola was sentenced to six years for 2009 killing MONIQUE TAMMINGA Times Reporter
A publication ban on a young woman’s name has been lifted after no appeal was filed with the courts following her being sentenced to six years in jail in Supreme Court in New Westminster in April. Langley resident Michelle Motola, 21, was sentenced to six years in a federal prison for her part in the killing of Langley’s Marc Bontkes. Originally tried as a youth, the Supreme Court judge decided to impose an adult sentence on Motola, who was just shy of her 18th birthday at the time of the killing. Despite being sentenced as an adult, a publication ban on the woman’s identity remained in place for 30 days, to allow her time to consider appealing her sentence. A query with the Court of Appeals did not turn up any appeals on behalf of Motola. Bontkes’ parents, siblings and other loved ones filled nearly two rows of a B.C. Supreme
courtroom in New Westminster to hear the judge’s sentence in April.The accused also had some family present. The room was very quiet as the judge read out his sentence. Motola had spent 20 months behind bars since her arrest in July 2010. The judge sentenced her to 72 months but credited her 30 months for time served (1.5 months for every month she has spent in jail) so she will spent 42 months behind bars. On top of not being able to release her name for 30 days, there is also a publication ban on the judge’s reasons for sentencing. This is because there is still a jury trial to come in Bontkes murder. Three people were arrested and charged in his murder. Roy Michael Thielen, 33, has already pleaded guilty to seconddegree murder in the case, as well as in the related killing of Laura Lynn Lamoureux. He is serving a life sentence with no chance of parole for 20 years. A third accused, Robert David Bradshaw, is expected to go on
trial in September. He is charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder. Motola was initially charged with one count each of firstdegree murder and conspiracy to commit murder. After working with both lawyers, she pleaded guilty to manslaughter in early February. Bontkes, 33, was found shot to death outside a parked mini-van in a parking lot of Hi-Knoll Park, on the Surrey-Langley border, on March 19, 2009. His murder, as well as that of Lamoureux’s, which took place just five days earlier, were related to the street-level drug trade, said police at the time. Motola was not charged in connection with Lamoureux’s murder. Bontkes founded Designmarc Homes, in Langley. He is the son of prominent Langley developer Robert Bontkes of Benchmark Group of Properties. Bontkes wasn’t known to police, but his family later said he was doing hard drugs at the time of his murder. He left behind a wife and a young son.

Langley’s Todd Hauptman and Tanya Tait were honoured at the recent Fraser Valley Kidney Walk at Bear Creek Park in Surrey. Hauptman received a kidney from Tait in March 2010. At the time, his kidneys had all but shut down, he was in hospital in a drug-induced coma with toxins filling his body. Since getting his new kidney from Tait, Hauptman is a new man with a new lease on a healthy life. Working on his political science degree and working for Langley MLA Mary Polak, while working on several human service projects, Hauptman is a busy young man. The pair spoke at the walk, which raised more than its goal of $12,000. “Events like yesterday bring back the enormity of her gift to me,” said Hauptman. He is now working with the Kidney Foundation to spread awareness about the importance of becoming an organ donor. He waited for three years to get a donation. It was Tait who offered her kidney. She had watched Hauptman grow up, as he started volunteer-

here is plenty of talk about the possibility of an NHL lockout this fall. It is likely that at least part of the season may be cancelled. While many people simply can’t get enough hockey, a lockout could have some benefits — particularly if it merely shortens the season, as opposed to cancelling it altogether. For starters, the NHL and its players have to get their finances into synch. Players deserve good salaries — they often are only in the league for a few years, and playing hockey in the NHL offers them the best opportunity to be rewarded for their tremendous skills. At the same time, their salaries must be reasonable enough that the entire league isn’t jeopardized. The league also has to become more realistic. It’s time to stop operating teams in desert cities where there is little fan interest. The NHL is never going to get a top-tier broadcast deal in the U.S., and it’s time the league realized that. With no broadcast deal, it makes far more sense to have fewer teams and place them in cities where there is significant fan interest. That’s why it made so much sense for the Atlanta Thrashers to relocate to Winnipeg last fall. If there is a lockout, it will give hockey fans more opportunities to see some of the other good hockey available at a fraction of the price — Abbotsford Heat in the AHL, Vancouver Giants in the WHL and Langley Rivermen in the BCHL. They can also check out some of the other sports in the area. Professionally, there are the CFL Lions and MLS Whitecaps, and there are many other good sports teams operating in Langley and throughout the Greater Vancouver area. Hockey has a symbolic hold on many Canadians, and that isn’t surprising, considering that much of Canada has a cold winter where sports such as hockey can thrive. Even here in B.C., where the weather is milder, minor hockey has grown tremendously and there is lot of interest in the game. However, the NHL Canucks have become a hard-to-get ticket. Businesses have scooped up many of the season tickets, and it’s hard for the average fan to get to see a game. While TV coverage of NHL hockey is excellent, there are plenty of other sports to see on television or in person. A lockout may help bring the NHL and players onto the same financial page, and could be good for other teams and sports.

s he announced that he would not be seeking re-election, Bill Barisoff said it’s time to pass the torch to the next generation of leaders. After 34 years in the public spotlight, in one form or another, there can be little doubt that’s true for Barisoff. And, in the weeks to come, there will be a lot of looking back over Barisoff’s career as a politician, with many analyzing every mistake with 20-20 hindsight. “It’s not the easiest vocation,” said former MLA Rick Thorpe, and Barisoff’s roommate in Victoria for years. “There is always going to be people that take shots at you.” Most of the scrutiny will likely fall on his 16 years as Liberal MLA for South Okanagan ridings. Though those years have been marked by the occasional scandal, including the recent auditor-general’s scathing report on the finances and accounting practices for the B.C. legislature, which are controlled through Barisoff’s office as Speaker of the House. But, especially for the people of the South Okanagan, it is more important to look back on the work he has done over the last 16 years to benefit the area. It’s a long list, stretching back many years but also including Barisoff’s support and work on behalf of the Penticton Community Centre reconstruction and the Centre of Excellence at Okanagan College. That, in fact, is what Barisoff considers one of the biggest accomplishments of his years in office, a world-class facility benefitting the entire South Okanagan. This then, is the time to say thank you and to appreciate what Barisoff, the man, has accomplished. The time to decide whether or not the Liberals are the best choice for running the province is next spring, when we all head to the polls in May. —Penticton Western News The Langley Times is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry.

Editor: In response to the letter: “Visit to the zoo depressing experience,” (The Times, Aug. 14), it’s unfortunate that the gate greeter was texting and chewing gum. Complain to the management there. Zoos are educational. And we can learn empathy and compassion for other species besides ourselves. The general admission price of $22.50 and food prices are not that much, considering that a great part of that money probably goes towards building and maintaining those “cool enclosures,” specific diets and medical supplies. It’s all about the money. It has to come from somewhere. Alberta is a very wealthy province, considering the oil sands. Perhaps some of the oil sands money helps out many organizations such as the Calgary Zoo. Unfortunately, we don’t have
oil sands here. I’ve been to the Greater Vancouver Zoo many times with friends, and we enjoy ourselves. Zoos have their place in today’s society. Some species of animals don’t have much time on this planet, because of man’s encroaching into their space. As long as the care and treatment is under the watchful eye of the SPCA, it’s all good. Maybe animals don’t have the capability to show “happiness” like we do. Animals pass away in captivity and in the wild and are left alone. Wild spaces are growing smaller all over this planet. I like to suggest to people who complain about animals shut in cages and look sad, that they try volunteering for awhile. It’s rewarding and you learn a lot.
Zoos and wildlife societies need our help. You can make a difference in an animal’s life. Humans are taking over and soon the only place you’ll see animals is in zoos. Take some time to roll up your sleeves and help out, and learn something about the wildlife which is under-appreciated. Because at the rate global warming is happening, most wildlife will be wiped out. I went online to check, and the Calgary Zoo general admission is $21 —not much less than our admission here. If the ducks that were enclosed are common to this area, they can fly and they can land anywhere. It could mean they like the zoo and want to be there. G.C. Hawrychuk, Langley
Internet voting topic for discussion Editor: For some time now, we’ve been hearing from many British Columbians around the province, as well as from interested municipalities, that they want to know more about Internet voting. As a society, we’ve grown increasingly comfortable with the Internet as a tool. In fact, 93 per cent of B.C. residents now have access to high-speed Internet, making us one of the most connected jurisdictions in the world. Many of us have grown accustomed to the convenience the Internet offers and we often rely on it for functions like online banking, shopping and booking travel plans. This shows the potential Internet voting has to increase accessibility and convenience and reinvigorate democracy in British Columbia. However, when it comes to something as integral to our democracy as our electoral process,
it is imperative that the appropriate precautions are taken. That’s why I, as Attorney General, have requested that Elections BC convene an independent panel to examine the potential for Internet voting here in B.C. This is the Shirley first step in exploring whether or Bond not Internet voting is a feasible option for our province. Specifically, Elections BC has been asked to look at best practices when it comes to internet voting in other jurisdictions — both in Canada and around the globe. The panel will look at Internet voting in both local and provincial contexts, as certain factors may be unique to each level of government. Most importantly, the panel will be examining all potential security and privacy
Editor: Re: “Put pipeline to voters,” (The Times, Aug. 21). Although B.C. Premier Christy Clark tries to appear neutral and open-minded in regards to the Northern Gateway oil sands project’s potentially detrimental environmental consequences, it’s fairly clear that she’s hoping for any piece of scrap thrown B.C.’s way by Alberta Premier Alison Redford. This could lead to justification for Clark to allow the potential mega-eco-disaster, twin-pipeline project to make its way through countless pristine and eco-sensitive regions of B.C., not to mention through to our northern coast and its waters that are at risk from giant oil tankers. Thus The Times’ “They Say” editorial is likely the best idea so far that I’ve heard. But as for Clark’s B.C. “fair share” ultimatum, hopefully Redford’s foolish, tight-fistedness will give only more reason for B.C.ers and perhaps even our government — not to mention fuel for the ecowarriors’ fight against the project — to just say, to hell with the whole thing. Frank G. Sterle, Jr., White Rock
Who has the first priority?
Happy service is noticed Editor: I would like to personally thank Roland Seguin (The Times, Aug. 16) for commenting on the great service he received at the stores he went to, and to The Times for publishing it. My store was not one of those listed, but being in retail I appreciate the happiness and gratification of a consumer. It makes me ecstatic to know that people notice great service. As a retail manager, I witness many people coming in being incredibly rude to my employees. Sales associates in turn give them great service and maintain calm while serving them.
concerns and how those may be addressed before we would even consider implementation. B.C.’s chief electoral officer Keith Archer will chair the panel, which will have members with expertise in technology, cryptography, Internet security policy and electoral administration. This panel will — and already has — sparked an engaging conversation about modernizing our electoral process. While we remain optimistic Internet voting could increase voter turnout in our province, we are exercising tremendous caution with something as significant as our province’s democracy. I’ll look forward to receiving the independent panel’s report and observing the interesting debate about Internet voting as it unfolds. Shirley Bond, Minister of Justice and Attorney General
‘Best idea I’ve heard thus far’
It seems to me that consumers now expect to be treated like royalty no matter what, and to be quite honest, I agree. But as an employee, I would also like to be treated with the same respect. No matter what your age, your looks or anything else superficial, everyone deserves a great smile and a pleasant greeting when they walk into a store, Do not take offence to us greeting you, just smile and say “I’m good thanks, just browsing.” I am just happy to know that someone has noticed good service and appreciates it. Lauren, Langley
Editor: I am not sure who to address this to at the Langley Township council office, so I thought I would ask if you could assist in my concern. I am a new resident of Langley, recently relocated from England. I am an avid football (soccer) supporter, as are my two sons. On Sunday morning, Aug. 19, at 10 a.m., my two sons and I went to the Langley Events Centre football fields to kick a ball around. When we arrived there, all three turf fields were in use. There was an old-timers game on one of them, a training session on the other and then what really caught my eye was a game between a boys’ team and a girls’
team on the third field. I said to my sons “what a great community we have moved to, to see such utilization of council fields.” However, after watching the boys vs. girls game and speaking to one of the parents, I realized they were two teams from another community — Abbotsford. Their shirts had Magnuson Ford printed on them. My question is simple. As a taxpayer in the community of Langley, do teams from outside the area have priority over a Langley taxpayers? S. Watson, Langley

Thousands more Langley residents will see huge savings on their house insurance premiums, thanks to the expansion of Langley Township’s superior tanker shuttle service accreditation. To be accredited by the Fire Underwriters Survey (FUS), a fire department must prove it can provide an alternative water supply and delivery system that can establish and maintain a flow of 900 litres per minute within five minutes of a fire engine arriving on the scene of a fire. The water supply must be sustained for two hours. In May, the department took on the third and final phase of testing for the FUS accreditation in southeast Langley. Through a demanding documentation and training process, crews proved that they can quickly move and maintain an effective water supply to fires in remote areas where hydrants do not exist. Last year, FUS accreditation was received for the southwest area of the municipality. The leading co-ordinator for the process is assistant fire chief

just another tax grab? This year, traffic fines netted $1.6 million in
revenue for the City and Township, the provincial government
announced last week. That money goes right back into police enforcement costs, like speed traps. The City will receive $447,847 and the Township gets $1,178,670. Since 2001, that’s $975 million in traffic fine revenue for B.C. municipalities. The grants come from ticket fines and court-imposed fines on violation tickets, and the amount of money a municipality receives is based on its contribution to total municipal policing costs. This money will provide additional funding for local policing services and crime prevention programs. Langley MLAs Rich Coleman and Mary Polak said this amount of ticket fine revenue proves that Langley’s police officers are keeping families and the community safe.

Turn surplus “stuff”
Spiralling pay for ICBC brass rapped Cost-cutting reforms pledged, president to resign JEFF NAGEL Black Press
ICBC president Jon Schubert will step down and the public auto insurer is pledging reforms after a provincial audit found executive pay had soared far too high. The finance ministry review found ICBC was “not aligned” with the province’s cost-containment priorities and recommended ICBC reduce the number of managers and their pay to levels more consistent with what existed in 2008. “A culture of cost-containment and financial discipline has been lacking in recent years,” it said, adding expense policies were “generous.” ICBC had 13 top managers paid more than $200,000 a year in 2007, but that had more than quadrupled to 54 by 2011. The report also noted there are more than 1,291 other managers and employees earning $75,000 to $200,000 — up 52 per cent from 848 in that bracket in 2007. Despite a 2011 policy change denying bonuses if ICBC profits fail to top $35 million, more than 85 per cent of management still got at least three-quarters of their eligible bonus that year.

You & The Law
PRESENTS Mental infirmity and adult guardianship An aging population means that more people are confronted by loved ones slipping into mental infirmity – perhaps due to dementia or simply a gradual decline in mental functions. What can you do if you believe such a person, perhaps a parent, can no longer look after themselves or handle their own financial affairs? Conversely, what are an adult’s rights to continue to fend for themselves, despite their children’s concerns, however well-meant? The BC Court of Appeal recently shed some light on these and related questions. Mr. M, 87, was a wealthy man. He married twice, the second time in 1965 to Mrs. M (who had four children from an earlier marriage). In 2011, Mr. M’s daughter from his first marriage brought legal proceedings to have legal guardians (called a “committee”) appointed for her elderly father. Such an application requires the opinion of two doctors stating that the adult in question is incapable of managing their affairs. However, Mr. M refused to submit to an examination. His daughter therefore asked for a court order forcing him to be examined. Mr. M showed some loss of memory and mental function and early signs of dementia. But there was also evidence that he remained capable of making prudent financial decisions. For example, in 2011, he changed his estate plan using professional help, which treated fairly both his first and second families. The law in B.C. presumes an adult is capable of making their own personal and financial decisions. The court in this case emphasized that this presumption underscores the values of personal autonomy, liberty and equality – all fundamental rights enshrined in our Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Courts will thus be careful before depriving anyone of those rights by appointing a guardian. And forcing an unwilling adult to undergo medical examinations (so that a court can hear a guardianship application) requires
a high threshold of evidence showing that the adult appears to be mentally incapable. This evidence can come from a doctor, close family, friends or others. But without it, a court will not order such an intrusive course of action. The court here concluded that the case wasn’t really about protecting a vulnerable adult, but rather was a dispute between two families, the first represented by Mr. M’s daughter from his first marriage, and the second by Mrs. M (his wife of some 47 years). The thrust of the daughter’s application (and her related guardianship applications) was geared to attacking Mr. M’s testamentary capacity to make a will. She wanted the will her father made in 2011 (as part of his revised estate plan) declared invalid because she preferred his previous will. The court ultimately decided it wouldn’t force Mr. M to be medically examined. The evidence fell short of the threshold, and he wasn’t in need of protection (e.g. there was no neglect or abuse). Seniors should include an enduring power of attorney as part of their general estate planning. This avoids the need for an expensive court application to appoint a guardian and allows you to choose who will handle your affairs. Children of elderly parents should also discreetly inquire whether an enduring power of attorney has been made by their parents. A child who has been named as attorney should try to spend a few hours familiarizing themselves with their parents’ affairs while they remain competent. This will be easier than trying to sort everything out after the parent has had a stroke or otherwise lost capacity. Written by Janice Mucalov, LL.B. with contribution by Milne Selkirk.

Would-be wine smuggler dogged by border guards Thirty litres of concealed wine uncovered by officers at Aldergrove crossing Border officers couldn’t just let sleeping dogs lie, seizing and destroying 30 litres of wine at the Aldergrove crossing on July 30. It all started when a Canadian resident was referred for a secondary examination to verify his $15 declaration.
During the vehicle examination, officers found six five-litre bags of wine hidden inside a compartment under the bench seats of his pickup. In an effort to conceal the undeclared alcohol, the back bench seat was covered with blankets, a dog bed, containers and
a dog. The empty wine boxes were found in a storage bin in the bed of the pickup. The amount of duty and taxes the traveller attempted to evade was approximately $135. The wine was seized and forfeited to the Crown for destruction.

An elaborate set-up designed to conceal several bags of wine underneath the rear bench seat of a pickup truck, was uncovered by border officers at the Aldergrove crossing on July 30. According to Canadian customs officials, the driver of the vehicle had attempted to avoid more than $100 in duty and taxes on the alcohol.

B.C. on track to balance budget, says Falcon JEFF NAGEL Black Press
B.C. ended the fiscal year with a smaller-than-forecast deficit of $1.84 billion, according to the provincial government. The deficit would have been $241 million had it not been for the one province’s one-time repayment of $1.6 billion in HST transition funding to Ottawa. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon predicted the province is on track to return to a balanced budget in 2013-14. But he cautioned while the 2011-12 results are better than
expected, B.C. still faces great economic uncertainty from fluctuating commodity prices and potential economic impacts from the European debt crisis. “British Columbia stands out globally as a safe harbour for investment because our government continues to keep spending and debt under control,” Falcon said, adding Europe’s plight reflects “the perils of the tax-borrow-and-spend mentality.” But B.C. Auditor General John Doyle pegged the deficit at $2.36 billion, finding the province understated it by $530 million due to its continued practice of

million to education and $51 million to social services. There were cuts in most other areas to offset the HST repayment. Nearly $3.6 billion went to capital spending on schools, universities, hospitals, roads, bridges and other infrastructure. B.C. took in an extra $1 billion in tax revenue last year, half of it from more personal income tax. The provincial debt climbed $2.8 billion to $50.2 billion. B.C.’s taxpayer-supported debtto-GDP ratio — a measure of ability to pay — fell to 16.4 per cent, one of the lowest ratios in North America.
THINKING ABOUT A NEW PATIO COVER? COME JOIN US SATURDAY, AUGUST 25 FROM 10:00 AM TO 2:00 PM
B.C. doctors have voted to ratify a new four-year master agreement with the province. The B.C. Medical Association said the deal provides $100 million to continue and expand medical programs until 2014 as well as a “modest” lift in doctors’ fees to cover their overhead costs. The fee increase is 0.5 per cent in each of the next two years and would be renegotiated for the final two years of the agreement. It also expands various incentives for family practice doctors to develop care plans for complex care, chronic disease and mental health patients and to increase access to family doctors. But the 92 per cent vote in favour is being contested by a faction of physicians who don’t like how the pot of medical funding is being divided. Those opposed say the outcome is illegitimate because most members didn’t vote and a further 3,000 to 4,000 non-BCMA members couldn’t vote. Dr. Zafar Essak said the agreement will expand the health care bureaucracy and muzzle doctors, who will be barred from speaking up for patients without approval of government officials. “Most doctors are fed up and want to hold the government and the BCMA accountable for the current crisis in our health care system,” Essak said. Also unhapppy is the B.C. Anesthesiologists’ Society, which campaigned for higher pay for its members and went to the brink of a service withdrawal this spring to try to win the right to bargain separately from the BCMA. BCAS executive director Dr. Roland Orfaly said wait lists have grown longer despite greatly increased funding funnelled through the BCMA —now more than $3.6 billion a year. “It’s been a colossal failure at the taxpayers’ expense and simply pouring more money into a dysfunctional BCMA process is not going to make the problem go away,” he said. BCMA officials contend specialist groups like the anesthesiologists, who got much more rapid fee increases than most doctors in past years, are simply irked because their pay is no longer rising as fast under the latest apportionment between physician groups. “They’ve had quite a few increases,” BCMA president Dr. Shelley Ross said. “In tough economic times you’re not going to get as much as you want.”

Bosa Properties brings parking innovation to Jameson House
Parking without the hassle Bosa Properties is bringing innovation to one of life’s little annoyances with its automated parking system at its Jameson House development in Coal Harbour. “The parking garage would have been 12 levels” if Bosa had gone with a conventional parking system, says Senior Vice-President Daryl Simpson. There are 250 parking spots in the development, and two transfer stations to move the cars. Simpson says the wait time to park and retrieve the car is about two minutes, but it depends on how many others are waiting. “It’s quicker than driving around and around,” he says, adding that this
system is the first of its kind in Canada, and the second-largest in North America. Homeowners pull into the garage and drive their car onto one of the stations. Then, you lock their car and type in your PIN. You can then go up to your home while the machines move the car into one of the spaces below. When you want to retrieve your car, you go back to the garage and type in your PIN. Your car will appear, and you’re on your way. The homes at Jameson House are now sold out, but with the popularity of the automated parking system, it’s only a matter of time until the technology is used elsewhere.
adjust the thermostat and view the inside of your home from a video camera in the centre of the home. The Lakefront homes include some upgrades as standard items, including hardwood floors on the main level and granite countertops in the kitchen, among several other things. The screened porches at the Cottages are referred to as summer rooms, and overlook the landscape. They are perfect for a mid-summer snooze, catching up with a good book or a quiet cup of coffee watching the sunrise. There is no shortage of ways to wile away your time in Osoyoos. The surrounding area itself is rich in things to do, from touring the amazing nearby wineries to floating around on Osoyoos Lake. Hiking and biking trails are
abundant, or you can book a round of golf at one of the golf courses. If you’re around in the winter, winter sports on Mount Baldy are only about 40 minutes away, or you can venture a bit farther afield to Penticton’s Apex Mountain. The price has been one of the biggest draws for people who have already purchased a cottage. “Where else could you get a 930-square-foot detached home, a three-minute barefoot walk from the lake for under $305,000, including all applicable taxes?” asks Van Maren. “Our prices are lower than many new apartment condos that aren’t even on the water.” Cottages start at $305,000. For more information, visit osoyooscottages.com or call 1-855-742-5555.
Spending the summer at the cottage
Waterfront living at The Cottages on Osoyoos Lake by Kerry Vital
Whether you’re looking for a vacation spot for the whole family or a place to retire after years of hard work, you need look no further than The Cottages on Osoyoos Lake, located right on the shores of the beautiful lake. “We found a spectacular waterfront property at a very affordable price, on Canada’s warmest lake,” says Eric Van Maren, Partner of Van Maren Construction Group. “Most people from B.C., and many from Alberta, are familiar with Osoyoos and have vacationed there in the past. A property like The Cottages just can’t be purchased in the Okanagan.” With over 1,500 feet of waterfront, 500 feet of beach, two swimming pools, a 7,000-square-foot clubhouse, 20 acres of lawn, boat slips and walking trails, the Cottages are the perfect spot for families of all sizes. There are three different styles of home available, Van Maren says, and thus truly something for everyone. “The Meadow homes are most appealing for second-home buyers,” he says. “They have lots of open space between the homes where younger children can play with newly made friends. You’re never more than a few minutes walk to the lake and clubhouse.” The Lakeside homes are made for people who want to live right on the water, while the Hillside homes appeal to those looking for somewhere to live year-round, and are larger. There are 14 different two- to four-bedroom floorplans to choose from, ranging from 1,281 square feet
We found a spectacular waterfront property at a very affordable price, on Canada’s warmest lake,” says Eric Van Maren.
including the screened porch and open deck to over 3,000 square feet. Expansive windows on every home and cottage let the natural light pour in and allow you a beautiful view of your surroundings, while the nine-foot ceilings contribute to a great sense of space, no matter the floorplan or how many visitors you have. You will never feel cramped in the homes at The Cottages on Osoyoos Lake. All of the homes offer wood-clad vaulted ceilings. Vinyl-plank flooring throughout the main living space (with hardwood as an optional upgrade) is ready to stand up to plenty of foot traffic, while the plush carpeting on the upper floors is soft and luxurious. Each home includes a Wireless Smart Home Automation/Security system, which allows you to remotely access your cottage from your smartphone, computer or tablet. It gives you the ability to lock or unlock your doors,
The Cottages on Osoyoos Lake feature wood-clad vaulted ceilings, above, and vinyl-plank flooring thoughout the main living areas, left. Outside, the expansive windows let the light pour in. Many homes are just a barefoot walk from the lake, top, making them the perfect vacation spot.

Be Water Wise this Summer During the summer, lawn watering and other recreational uses can account for 50 per cent of home water use. As a general rule, watering your lawn “1 inch 1 hour” is an adequate amount of time to keep lawn healthy. Also, a taller lawn shades roots and holds soil moisture better than if coarsely clipped, so adjust your lawn mower to a higher setting.

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:
Using a running hose to wash your car can waste up to 400 litres of water. Using a bucket and a sponge with a trigger nozzle on the hose you can save 300 litres of that water. These nozzles are included in the Township’s outdoor water saving kit, which are available for $15 at any recreation centre.
• approve the application; or
Rain barrels are an ideal tool for watering the garden and reducing pressure on our water system during the summer months. These barrels hold 190 litres of water and include one overﬂow hose and one on/off tap. They can be picked up for $35 each at the Operations Centre. Limit one rain barrel per Township household. Residential use only.
• refer the matter to an alternate dispute resolution process in order to come to a final decision.
Engineering Division 604.532.7300 firstname.lastname@example.org
• reject the application; or • require amendments to the application, including re-submission; or
Industry Canada requires that local government decisions be limited in scope to the impact that will be had on particular amenities or important characteristics of the area surrounding the proposed site.

Blooms fading on Gibbs Nurseryland NATASHA JONES Times Reporter
For 60 years, the flowers tumbling from hanging baskets and three acres of plants and shrubs at Gibbs Nurseryland have offered motorists a visual treat as they drive the grey-black tarmac of 200 Street. By the end of September, the colour will have faded from Gibbs as the business is closing. The property, three acres on the southeast corner of 200 Street and 80 Avenue, was bought last November by Langley Township for $5,750,000.The municipality gave Gibbs Nurseryland owners Dave and Sharon Preston a year to wind down their business. For customers, it all ends on Sept. 30. “It’s bitter sweet,” Sharon Preston said,“because we weren’t quite ready to be moving.” The couple have retained the company name, and although retirement has crept into their conversation, they are keeping open the option to owning another nursery in another place, with the same name. “We’re not closing the door to re-opening, but no property seems desirable,” she said, adding that
customers are quite sad that the garden centre is closing,“but are happy for us.” “Some have shopped here since 200 Street was a dirt road. Some are very broken hearted.” For many customers, going to Gibbs for their Christmas tree, floral Thanksgiving arrangement or spring bulbs became a tradition on which memories are built. The news came as a jolt for the staff, some of whom have worked with the Prestons since they bought the business almost 20 years ago. “They are finding it quite hard. We are a close knit family,” Sharon said.“It will be an adjustment for everyone. “We never realized how much community support there is and how many people are upset that we are leaving. Customers have been awesome. It’s been great for us and we wouldn’t do it any other way. “It’s been a wonderful experience.” Other nurseries have already approached the Prestons with a view to hiring some of their staff, while other workers are finding work in other areas of the industry, including learning landscape design. Manager Randall Wittet has been with Gibbs for 16 years. He is hoping to find work with the

His colleague Jennifer Fruno is returning to school to study greenhouse and nursery production. “It’s been a fabulous 16 years,” Wittet said. He thanked the thousands of
customers “who have been loyal to us over the many, many years, from all over the Lower Mainland.” Scott Thompson, the Township’s property manager, said that there are no immediate plans to demolish the buildings.
The property abuts the northwest corner of the Township’s Events Centre property which covers about 25 acres. Acting mayor Grant Ward said that council will be asked to consider a number of possibilities for the Gibbs Nurseryland property. These include a hotel, restaurant, a theatre that would attract live acts, and some commercial elements. Ward said that he personally feels the property “is an ideal location for a community gaming facility.” He added that he would “like to see the highest and best use for that land.” Ward favours a joint venture with private enterprise.

The Langley Food Bank is receiving a shipment of some much needed produce, thanks to Langley students. It’s all part of Nature’s Classroom, a unique program funded by a $14,000 donation from Envision Financial in partnership with the Langley Environmental Partners Society (LEPS) and Maples Discovery Gardens. Over the course of 12 weeks from April to June, Langley students in five classes selected from Langley Meadows, R.C. Garnett, Langley Fine Arts School and Alex Hope Elementary schools attended six workshops at Maples Discovery Gardens Co-op.

During this time, the students were given a chance to plant their own vegetable gardens while learning about soil and composting and becoming stewards of the environment. With students away from school on summer vacation, the produce was harvested last week (Aug. 14) by Envision Financial, LEPS, Maples Garden’s staff as well as children from the Langley Summer Day Camp program.

Online store spices things up Shopping online is a whole lot spicier now with the launch of ‘Canada Q’, a new online store that specializes in Canada’s largest selection of hard-tofind barbecue ingredients and tools. The new website, www.CanadaQ.ca, features barbecue sauces, seasonings, rubs and accessories made popular by award winning competitive barbecue teams throughout North America. Developed by Canada’s 2011 national barbecue champions, Angie Quaale and David Gassaway, Canada Q offers a one stop shop for hard-to-find ingredients that will help turn the average Joe into a barbecue pro. “It was our professional barbecue friends who originally inspired the idea for Canada Q. They were having trouble finding their favourite barbecue ingredients locally to use in competitions,” said Angie Quaale, an award winning barbecue pitmaster, founder of Canada Q and owner of Well Seasoned. “So we built this website partly for them but also for regular folk who want to spice up their barbecue recipes with great ingredients they can buy easily from home and have shipped anywhere in Canada.” Shopping categories on the new Canada Q website include rubs, accessories, sauces, pellets, charcoal and cookbooks. Canada Q ships anywhere in Canada. The Canada Q headquarters is located at Well Seasoned, a gourmet food retailer and barbecue specialty store located in Langley. For more information, visit www.CanadaQ.ca or contact 604-530-1518.

hile representing your country means something special to every athlete, it holds a little added significance for Braedon Dolfo. Born in Kingstown, St. Vincent, an island country in the Caribbean Sea, life could have turned out very differently for Dolfo. Dolfo was adopted at 18 months old by Brent and Diana Dolfo, with the family first in Coquitlam before settling in Langley. As a toddler, Dolfo developed cataracts and chronic uveitis. He was later diagnosed with glaucoma, an eye disease which over time damages the optic nerve and impairs vision. It can deteriorate to the point of complete blindness. Dolfo underwent several surgeries to try and correct the problem, but at age 11, he lost the majority of his field of vision. His vision now is best described as peering through a straw, unable to see what is on either side of him. “Representing Canada means a lot,” the 18-year-old said following a recent training

six days a week at the track, and then retreating home for ice baths and proper nutrition. Not that he is complaining. “The sacrifice is definitely worth the reward,” he said. “What 18-year-old gets to go to the Olympics?” Dolfo has been feeling the Olympic buzz ever since early July when Pacific Sport Fraser Valley held a send-off party at Willoughby Community Park for local athletes heading to London. “It was a proud moment to be able to wear the Canadian flag,” he described. “Being an athlete that gets to represent your country and go to the Olympics is an amazing thing. “You get to see little kids smiling and coming up to you and asking for pictures and autographs. “It means the world to them and it really means the world to you.You are inspiring people.” Dolfo will be joined in London by his parents, his younger siblings — 15-year-old Keynan and 13-year-old Tanika — as well as grandparents. Following the Games, Dolfo will begin his first year at Trinity Western, where he will also compete on the Spartans’ track and field team.

he first time Dylan Williamson watched Dustin Walsh and his guide runner in action, he was amazed at the synchronicity between the two men. Guide runners are used for visually impaired or blind athletes, with the two either running in unison by holding either end of a short tether, or with the guide running behind the athlete, giving verbal instructions as they make their way around the track. The athletes must be within 50 cm of one another and the guide runner cannot pull their runner or cross the finish line ahead of their partner. Williamson, a 22-year-old from Langley, was being brought in as a potential replacement for Steve Walters, Walsh’s guide runner of the past seven years. The 29-year-old Walsh was left blind at birth by glaucoma. “You obviously need a good physical match so you can

run in stride,” explained Walsh, following a brief break in a recent workout at North Surrey Secondary. “Every step we take is a mirror image so when my left leg is coming through, his right leg is, and vice versa, so we are covering the same amount of ground with each stride.” Personality is also important. “It really is like a marriage,” laughed Walsh. “You spend so much time together, training, at meets, hotels, etc. “You have to be able to put up with each other and know each other’s personalities on and off the track.” “It was amazing to me how quickly I meshed with him,” added Williamson. “We can both laugh quite easily, whether at ourselves or at a joke.” Williamson, 22, was a relative late bloomer when it comes to track.

Grade 11 as a way to stay in shape. He soon found he enjoyed the sport. As for becoming a guide runner, that happened by chance. With Walsh looking for someone to fill in for Walters — who had been hired by the Delta Police Department — Trinity Western track and field coach Laurier Primeau, also the head coach of Canada’s Para-athletics team, thought Williamson might be a good match. They brought Williamson out for what he calls “a trial by fire.” After about four or five practices, it became obvious that this partnership would work. “We are a team, that is the most awesome thing,” Williamson described. “We are competing as one athlete. “I think it is really a unique experience that not a lot of athletes would really get.” The original plan was for Williamson to fill in for Walters, who would serve as guide runner if Walsh qualified for the 2012 Paralympics in London.

Walsh is running two events in London: the 4x100 relay — alongside Braedon Dolfo (page 38) — and the 400m, and he feels good about his chances. “I have been to two medal ceremonies and had to watch, which is a very frustrating thing,” he said. Walsh said he is one of the lucky athletes who has enough funding where he does not have to work and can concentrate solely on his training. “That is a really fortunate position, because not everyone gets the chance,” he said. He also likes his new role as a mentor of sorts to Williamson and other younger athletes. When Walsh began running with Walters, there was a seven year age gap between the two with Walsh being the

Since Williamson only found out a few months ago he was going to London, only his mom was able to get time off to travel to London.
