An aerial view, taken from the CTV News chopper on Tuesday afternoon, shows how flames engulfed both the building at Ken Johnson Trucking in Port Kells and a number of trucks parked inside or near the structure. Damage is estimated to exceed $1 million.

‘A miracle no one was killed’ Massive blast at Port Kells trucking company leaves one worker with burns Natasha JoNes Times Reporter

An explosion and series of smaller blasts engulfed a Langley trucking business in an inferno that sent workers scurrying from neighbouring businesses on Tuesday afternoon. The fire sent a massive cloud of dense black smoke into the air where it could be seen miles away. It was a miracle that no one was killed,

said the Township’s assistant fire chief, Bruce Ferguson. One man, who was one of five in the Ken Johnson Trucking company’s shop at 9807 196A St., suffered burns to his back. He had been working on an empty tank trailer. He was airlifted to Vancouver General Hospital. His condition is not known, but sources say that he was able to walk to a ground ambulance where he was assessed by B.C. Ambulance Service paramedics. The man was one of five people in the shop of Ken Johnson Trucking which hauls fuel, oils and chemicals in tankers. The explosion was so intense that it blew parts of the tanker on which the injured man had been working over the

other side of the Golden Ears Bridge ramp, Ferguson said. “It’s lucky that there weren’t several fatalities,” he said. Ferguson estimated that the trucking company property lies approximately 200 metres from the bridge ramp. The alarm came to Langley Fire Department at 2 p.m. as a commercial structure fire with a possible B.L.E.V.E, a Boiling Liquid Evaporating Vapour Explosion. “It’s obvious that the explosion was the cause of the fire, but what caused the explosion is still to be determined,” Ferguson said. He added that it’s only speculation that a spark from a welding torch was the cause. The smaller explosions that followed the initial blast were likely caused

by bursting acetylene and oxygen tanks inside the shop where the men were working, he said. Much of the thick smoke came from burning tires. The explosion and fire caused “a lot of fear bordering on panic,” Ferguson said. “You could see it in the bystanders.” Kelly Lough posted a message on The Times’ Facebook page: “I was sitting at my desk a few doors from Ken Johnson Trucking. The blast practically knocked me out of my chair.” Video and aerial shots taken from CTV News Chopper 9 showed a number of vehicles on fire, and a large building engulfed in flames. continued, PAGE 6

news Thielen refuses to testify

The

Langley Times

Monique TaMMinga Times Reporter

Roy Thielen refused to testify at the double murder trial of Robert Bradshaw in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster on Wednesday morning. Thielen, 33, said from the prisoner’s box that he was there against his will. He said he had consulted a lawyer and is refusing to testify. Thielen is already serving a life sen-

tence after pleading guilty to second degree murder in the killings of Langley’s Marc Bontkes and Laura Lynn Lamoureux, which took place five days apart in March, 2009. Bradshaw is facing a jury trial, charged with first degree murder in both killings. Thielen could be found in contempt of court. That will be up to the judge. However, there is no real punishment for contempt in this case, as he is already in jail.

The trial was adjourned and was set to resume at 2 p.m., after The Times’ press deadline. At that time, Thielen was going to be asked again to testify. If he refuses, the jury was to be given a re-enactment of the night Bontkes was killed. Michelle Matola, 21, is also serving a sentence for Bontkes’ murder. She was sentenced to six years after pleading guilty to manslaughter. She was initially charged with first degree murder.

Sewage spills kills fish in West Cr.

Monique TaMMinga Times Reporter

Langley Township is working hard to clean up a “significant” sewage spill into a portion of West Creek, a fish-bearing stream, which occurred last Thursday. According to Township director of public works Ronald Zwaag, a large sewage main broke in Gloucester at 272 Street, south of 56 Avenue, which sits right beside West Creek. Ironically, a roadside sign marks this area of West Creek as protected, and there are storm water retention ponds to regulate storm water flow into West Creek. These retention ponds are where the effluent first entered West Creek. The Township found out about it quickly, and crews worked fast to shut down the flow of sewage so they could get at the broken main. “We worked through the night and had the pipe fixed by the weekend,” said Zwaag. “But the clean up of the creek is complicated and ongoing.” Both the Ministry of Environment and the Department of Fisheries are aware and in contact with the Township about the spill. When sewage effluent spews into a waterway, it chokes the oxygen inside the water, killing every living thing that relies on that oxygen. “The first thing we did was pump oxygen back into the creek,” said Terry Veer, manager of operations. This particular area of West Creek had local species like trout. However, other areas of West Creek are salmon bearing. The spill area appears to be contained because a beaver dam has landlocked that particular section of waterway. But the damage is done and now they are conducting tests to see what levels of chloroform are left in the water. “We have been pumping out sewage and replacing it with fresh water, so we are waiting for test results on that,” said Veer.

Kurt LANGMANN/Black Press

Hundreds of trout and stickleback died after a sewage spill at Gloucester Industrial Park, at 272 Street south of 56 Avenue. The sewage went into West Creek, a significant fish-bearing stream. The mystery is why a 12-year-old pipe would break. “The pipes should last 75 years,” said Veer. A piping expert is being brought in by the Township to investigate the pipe to see where the failure is and to determine if this could happen to other sewage lines in Gloucester. Lifelong County Line resident Cal Caplette is distraught and sick to his stomach about the sewage spill. The effluent almost immediately killed all the trout and stickleback fish in the beaver pond below the Caplette family’s home. Dead trout floated to the top of the creek Thursday evening and by Friday morning had settled to the bottom. Hundreds of dead trout and stickle-

back are visible on the creek bottom, and are slowly but surely being covered by solid particles. The pungent smell of sewage lingers in the water. Caplette, whose family has lived here since 1949, said he has never seen anything like this before. “The Township and Ministry of Environment say they are on top of it but I really don’t think there is anything they can do,” said Caplette, who has been in constant contact with the government agencies since Thursday. “I guess I’ll see,” he added. The Township has installed an aerator in Caplette’s pond to put oxygen into the water, but it’s too little, too late, for the fish that were there. The pond is dead. — with files from Kurt Langmann,Black Press

SCHOOL DISTRICT NEWS WORKING TOGETHER FOR STUDENT SUCCESS

604-534-7891 • www.sd35.bc.ca Audited Financials Confirm Deficit Repayment is on Track

At their September 25 Regular Meeting, the Langley Board of Education approved the District’s Audited Financial Statements for 2011/2012.

Members of Lynn Fripps' immediate family joined the school community for the first day of school at Lynn Fripps Elementary last month.

Naming Process for New Elementary School School District No. 35 is now accepting submissions from the public for the name of the new elementary school in the SouthEast Yorkson area. The school is scheduled to open in Fall 2013 at 20965 - 77A Avenue (at 209th). Names should reflect the geographical area or names of prominent persons, including deceased persons. Submissions should include the name and contact information of the person or group making the suggestion, and a rationale for the suggested name. Submission forms can be downloaded from our website. Submissions must be returned by October 29, 2012 to the office of the Secretary Treasurer at the School Board Office, 4875 – 222nd Street, Langley V3A 3Z7. Submissions may also be faxed to 604532-1401 or sent to Laurie Mason at the following e-mail address: lmason@ sd35.bc.ca For more information call 604-532-1476.

Board Approves New Strategic Plan The 2012-2013 Strategic Plan was approved at the Regular Board meeting of September 25th. The public is invited to view the Plan at www.sd35.bc.ca/strategicplan. Feedback sent via stratplan@sd35.bc.ca will assist in the development of next year’s Strategic Plan.

Over the past two years the District has achieved a total of $14,466,736 in net revenue ($6,222,253 in 2010-2011 and $8,244,483 in 2011-2012) in our operating fund. Of this amount $156,590 of revenue was transferred to the capital fund to cover the cost of capital assets purchased in the operating fund, leaving a net revenue amount of $14,310,146. Comparing this figure to the June 30, 2010 operating fund deficit of $13,470,940, the operating fund now has a surplus of $839,206. The Board established a restricted surplus of $2,688,260 at the end of June 2011 which has now been increased to $3,188,260 at June 2012. What this means is that the $839,206 operating fund surplus is comprised of this restricted surplus of $3,188,260 and an unrestricted deficit of $2,349,054, a figure we still have to repay under the Deficit Elimination Plan. We have budgeted for a surplus of $2,134,408 in 2012-2013 which, if achieved, will eliminate most of this remaining deficit. The detailed Audited Financial Statements may be viewed in the Board News area of our website at www.sd35.bc.ca.

WOLF surprised by land purchase deadline Natasha JoNes Times Reporter

The Watchers of Langley Forests (WOLF), a non-profit group, has been given until Nov. 17 to come up with $3 million to buy taxpayerowned land in Glen Valley. The amount is no surprise: In July Mayor Jack Froese challenged those who want to preserve the forested land to come up with the money. But the tight deadline appears to have caught WOLF off guard. WOLF member Stuart Bucholtz declined to comment. “We have to have time to disseminate it,” he said on Tuesday morning. Township administrator Mark Bakken also declined to comment beyond stating that talks between the municipality and WOLF are continuing. WOLF is comprised of Township residents who oppose the Township’s plan to sell what they consider are ecologically significant forests and wetlands. Before WOLF was formed, residents were successful in persuading council not to sell 21 acres of Township-owned forest in Glen Valley on 84 Avenue, between 252 and 254 Streets. If the group can come up with $3 million, it will own the 25-acre forest located near 84 Avenue and 260 Street.

Catchment for New Elementary School The Board approved two recommendations related to the catchment for the new elementary school. The first recommendation set the proposed boundary for the new school, while the second recommendation set the resulting new proposed boundary for Willoughby Elementary. The change would affect only the eastern boundary for Willoughby Elementary as outlined on the school’s current catchment map viewable in our schools directory at www.sd35.bc.ca/ schools The catchment map for the new South-East Yorkson area school may also be viewed online at www.sd35.bc.ca/newschools Feedback on the proposed catchment boundaries may be sent via SEYorksonfeedback@sd35.bc.ca

Special Meeting on Long Term Facilities Plan The public is invited to attend a Special Meeting of the Board regarding the District’s Long Term Facilities Plan to be held on the evening of Tuesday, October 9, 2012. The Plan will inform the Board’s 5-Year Capital Plan submission to the Ministry of Education, and guide School District No. 35 in preparing for our long term facility needs throughout Langley.

The Township had planned to use the proceeds of the sale to buy the Aldergrove Elementary School site on which it plans to build a new community centre, swimming pool and ice rink. The 21 acres fell into the Township’s hands in the 1930s as a result of a property tax sale. The parcel consists of one five-acre lot and two plots of eight acres each. The parcels are within the Agricultural Land Reserve while those which the Township intends to sell to WOLF are outside the ALR boundary. In a statement issued early last month, WOLF said it has continued a campaign on Facebook and Twitter to gather more public support for the retention of the easterly properties. The campaign included organized guided trail walks through the site, and gathering names on a petition. Information made public for the first time about the proposal to WOLF appeared in the agenda for council’s meeting on Oct. 1. It notes that council had anticipated community groups would raise funds for Grey Pit but that understanding “appears to be uncertain.” WOLF was also expected to come up with a $10,000 deposit by Oct. 3. If WOLF can secure the funds, it must show it is an incorporated society under the Society Act, and “protect and conserve” the land for a park, trail, education, and recreational purposes in perpetuity.

Lawsuit in fatal balloon crash dismissed

Dan Ferguson Black Press

A B.C. Supreme Court judge has dismissed a lawsuit against the manufacturer of a hot-air balloon that burst into flames over Hazelmere RV Park & Campground in 2007, killing two people from Langley. The pilot of the balloon, Stephen Pennock, sued manufacturer Aerostar International, arguing the fire was the result of the “improper assembly” or “unsafe design” of the propane fuel line by Aerostar. In response, Aerostar said there was no evidence of a defect in the hose, adding that in over 30 years of building balloons, it has never had what was described as a “pull-out failure.” In his written reasons for judgment released last Thursday, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Gregory Bowden said the

evidence establishes the fire was caused when a fuel hose separated from a tank, “allowing liquid propane to spray uncontrollably around the gondola and ignite.” But it was not possible to say exactly why the hose came loose, the judge declared. “… there is no direct evidence of the cause of the failure of the hose,” Bowden said, and dismissed Pennock’s claim. The judgement includes Pennock’s description of events the day he was preparing to lift off in a hot air balloon built by Aerostar. Pennock, a pilot with over 2,000 hours of flying time in a hot air balloon, had ignited the pilot light in the propane burner that would pump hot air into the balloon, then pulled a trigger to initiate a “full burn.” “(Pennock) described hearing a loud,

sharp release of pressure which he described like the sound of a truck releasing its air brakes,” the judge wrote. “He looked up at the flame and then heard an explosion on his right side. He heard gas escaping, felt vapor around him and smelled propane. He felt a spray of fuel coming up beside his face. “(Pennock)  described it like being hit in the face with a blowtorch. Stephen Pennock He said he was stunned and blinded. He yelled to the passengers to get out of the gondola. When the plaintiff fell, he was burning, so he rolled on the

ground. He then saw the balloon and gondola rising off the ground. The gondola was engulfed in flames. He noticed passengers jumping from the gondola to the ground.” Langley mother and daughter Shannon and Gemma Knackstedt were killed and 11 others, including Pennock, were injured when the Aerostar S77A Pennock was piloting Aug. 24, 2007 caught fire during takeoff preparations at the 18843 8 Ave. RV park. - with files from Tracy Holmes, Black Press

Talking, texting remains prevalent Monique TaMMinga Times Reporter

Langley drivers are still doing plenty of texting and talking on cellphones. Last Thursday morning (Sept.27), several volunteers set up at busy intersections like 200 Street and 64 Avenue, documenting license plates of drivers talking or texting. Within hours, 177 drivers were identified, said Lorraine Grennan, Langley RCMP’s Community Policing municipal supervisor. Each of those drivers will be sent an education warning letter to help them understand the dangers of driving while talking and texting. “We had one officer at 208 Street and 84 Avenue handing out tickets and she just getting one (driver) after another,” said Grennan. “Just leave your phone alone. Driving and texting is the third leading cause of fatal crashes.” According to ICBC, 94 crash deaths a year in B.C. are caused by distracted drivers using a phone while behind the wheel. “We saw moms with kids in the car and you have to ask, what are your priorities? Well, of course, it’s your kids.” The distracted drivers campaign is supported by ICBC, the province, police and community policing volunteers.

Ferguson said that one tractor, three trailers and a small pickup were destroyed. The company office escaped damage. It remained closed on Wednesday while investigators sifted through the debris. Power to the office and several other businesses was cut when transformers blew, but was expected to be restored by

Thursday. The emergency caused heavy congestion on roads in the Port Kells region and northwest Langley, prompting the closure of the Golden Ears Bridge in both directions, and a section of Telegraph Trail. The fire drew one of the largest responses from surrounding municipalities. Surrey and Langley City fire departments sent their aerial

ladders to augment fire crews from Walnut Grove, Fort Langley, Willoughby and Murrayville. Several agencies are investigating. These include Transport Canada, WorkSafe, and Human Resources Development Canada, the federal equivalent to WorkSafeBC. Damage from the blast and fire is expected to exceed $1 million.

Township backs shark fin ban Natasha JoNes Times Reporter

Graphic details about how the fins of sharks are harvested appear to have been enough to convince Township council to reverse its decision to ban the sale of the fish delicacy. Last month, council turned down a proposal from Councillor Charlie Fox calling for a report on harmonizing the Township’s stand with that of other jurisdictions that ban shark fins and related products. On Monday, after hearing from Anthony Marr, spokesman for the Vancouver Island Animal Defense League, council voted 8-1 to back Fox’s motion. Marr said that after their fins are cut, the sharks, still living,

are tossed back into the sea. Though tasteless, shark fins are highly prized for their texture. They fetch significantly more on the market than meat from the rest of the fish. Meat is about 70 cents a pound, and the fins about $700 per pound, Marr said. Not only is shark finning cruel, at the rate it is proceeding it is endangering the species, he said. Of 450 species, one-third are endangered. He noted too, that sharks are extremely slow to reproduce. While most fish spawn thousands of eggs a year, sharks give birth to only two to four pups every two to four years. “If we delay, even for one year, we will lose 100 million sharks,” Marr said. “It is totally unsustainable,”

Marr told council. Langley has two restaurants that serve shark fin soup, he said. The motion supporting a ban passed with only Councillor Grant Ward opposed. Two weeks ago, he remarked that “This is none of our business.” Ward added that a ban “could hurt the fishing industry that is under proper management” all over the world. Marr, however, indicated that continuing killing sharks for their fins will do more than that. In a later comment, he noted that if sharks are wiped out, medium size fish on which they now prey would proliferate, over-prey on small fish “and the entire oceanic ecosystem could collapse.”

Community consultations in spring

from PAGE 5

The plan will help formulate the board’s five-year capital plan submission to the Ministry of Education for funding for new schools. The board said it hasn’t decided the format of the special meeting yet, so it isn’t known if they will be taking comments from the audience on the plan.

The board had already seen the report at a Sept. 20 in-camera meeting, and sent it back to the consultant with several recommendations. Once those recommendations are implemented, the report will be ready for the public to see. It was in the spring that the district held numerous community consultations, asking the

public, mainly parents, what they would like to see at their schools and where improvements could be made. They asked if there should be more middle schools, and where they should be located. Those roundtable discussions were documented and that information, along with feedback through e-mails and letters, was included to form the report.

Food chain changed

Rebel jumps ship again

T

he massive and unprecedented recall of beef that emerged from a Brooks, Alberta processing plant should cause people to pause and think about the food chain, and how demands for low consumer prices may have a long-term effect that goes far beyond this recall. The way that meat goes from farm to the table has changed dramatically in the past 50 years. There used to be many more slaughterhouses or killing plants than there are today. They were smaller and, by today’s standards, pretty primitive. There were several in B.C., including what was once called Pacific Meats and later Intercontinental Packers, in South Vancouver. There were also many small slaughterhouses, including Borsato’s in Langley and others. B.C. farmers and ranchers produce a large supply of cattle for the meat market each year. But for the most part, they are now shipped off to huge feed lots on the Prairies for a final fattening up before being butchered. A few farmers and ranchers raise some cattle to full size and sell meat to customers or specialty butcher shops directly. In virtually all cases, this meat is more expensive — but it comes with the assurance that the final consumer knows just where the meat originated and how it has been handled. Almost every single large grocery retailer buys beef from a handful of huge plants, such as the Brooks facility. It has been estimated that up to 40 per cent of the beef sold in B.C. comes from that plant. That’s why the recall list is such a long one. Years ago, the much-loved Woodward’s chain used to have an annual grass-fed beef sale, from cattle on the Douglas Lake Ranch, owned by company president Chunky Woodward. It was a huge success. Grocery chains today have to offer low prices to get customers in the door, and meat prices are among the most closely-watched. Getting good value for your dollar has never been more important. But as details about the recall emerge, it seems clear that the volume of cattle moving through the Brooks plant and the sheer difficulty in keeping E.coli infections under control are major factors in this serious health issue. And this is serious. It’s not just ground beef that has been affected, but steaks and roasts. Hopefully out of all this will come a demand by meat eaters for better information about the food they eat.

ohn Van Dongen has quit yet another provincial political party because his leader is inept and not worthy of his support. “I am turning in my BC Conservative party membership. I cannot in good conscience, pretend that I could support John Cummins for a future premier. I don’t believe he has the capacity to do the job,” Van Dongen spouted Sept. 22, mere minutes after approximately 71 per cent of party members voted against a review of Cummins’ leadership. Hmm? Does this make Van Dongen honourable, arrogant, indecisive, or none of the above? Take your time because this is neither a trick question nor a time-limited option. The Abbotsford South MLA, first elected in 1995, originally appeared to be a popular and astute fellow. Part way through his recent term as a sitting MLA, he became frustrated with Premier Christy Clark and in a well-orchestrated huff, crossed the political floor. This past summer, during a small Conservative rally in Kelowna, Van Dongen made it abundantly clear he has zilch use for the leadership skills of Clark and holds her accountable for his Liberal mutiny. At that same rally, Van Dongen suggested to local Conservative supporters an alliance between Conservatives and Liberals would be a good idea — a coalition party to save the province. He was later queried about the logic of his alliance suggestion since many Conservatives felt it was simply time to oust the Liberals — not join them. Was an alliance not akin to kissing one’s sister? Van Dongen is now much like a man without a country, pole without a flag, champion without a queen. The question begs to be asked: Precisely who does Van Dongen think is worthy of being premier — aside from himself? Of course, there is still the very real option that Van Dongen may do a reverse flip yet again and head back to the floundering Liberals. —Kelowna Capital News The Langley Times is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry.

Time for rethink on Zero Avenue Editor: Back in 2002, 16 Avenue had more accidents than Zero Avenue (The Times, March 29, 2002). That being recognized, through the installation of ‘traffic calming devices,’ the council of the day chose to divert more than 3,000 cars a day onto 16 Avenue, ignoring the loud voices of hundreds of South Langley residents and taxpayers as they did so. It has been said that “One should never attribute malice to events that are much more easily explained by incompetence.” However, there are certain irrefutable facts that have given long-time observers of the debate cause to wonder. Consider these points: Zero Avenue runs the full length of Langley Township, on its southern boundary with the U.S. — 16 Avenue does not. Zero Avenue makes contact with the border crossing to the U.S., but it has no cross streets for the full length of the road. Meanwhile, 16 Avenue has a significant number of full-blown, four-corner intersections. Zero Avenue residents live on one side of the road only and, comparatively speaking, are few in number, while 16 Avenue residents live on both sides of the road and, comparatively speaking, significantly outnumber their counterparts to the south. Zero Avenue has always been a commuter road and has long been recognized as such, even by those who live there. (The Times, Feb. 26,2002). This same article quotes a Zero Avenue resident as saying “the issue is about safety . . . but it’s also about maintaining Langley’s countryside. This is the Township’s greatest asset”. The individual who made that comment should get out and appreciate the Township to its fullest, as it is blessed with an abundance of beautiful and much admired quiet country roads and landscapes. Actually, Zero Avenue, in much of its length, is bordered on

the south by a mosquito-breeding swamp. Two well-attended open houses in 2002 were organized by the Township to discuss the Zero Avenue proposals, and to receive input from those residents and taxpayers on and between 16 and Zero Avenues. At the March 26, 2002 meeting, 37 people were on the agenda to speak and four of those spoke in favour of the proposals. The remaining speakers were opposed. From that indication of opposition, one can extrapolate the results of the questionnaires given to local residents. The information drawn from these questionnaires, along with a 670-name petition in opposition to the proposals, seem to have drawn little attention and in fact seem to have disappeared from view. Several councillors indicated in 2004 “that they did not know that such a petition existed, nor had they seen the traffic studies in advance of voting on the present proposal to restrict Zero Avenue traffic,” (The Times, Nov. 12, 2004). Township engineers in 2002 had planned to have Zero Avenue become a collector road. Council members, with not an engineer among them, determined that treating an east-west connector as a country road was a preferable choice. Both Surrey and Abbotsford did their best to discourage these pseudo-engineers, but to no avail. Even the fire chief, Wayne Markel, voiced his concerns with respect to the speed humps damaging equipment and slowing response times. This was in June, 2002. Well, here we go again, with the talk of four-laning 16 Avenue. Taxpayers living in the southern portion of the municipality, who are 8 km from their closest fire hall, already pay a significant amount of money for their home insurance. Imagine any emergency vehicles attempting to cross over four lanes of 16 Avenue. A four–lane 16 Avenue would sever, cut off, and amputate the entire portion of the Township that is situated to the south.

In this portion of the municipality, property values would plummet. Council would struggle with the choice of roundabouts, stop lights or overpasses at each of the mile road intersections. To recognize the need for Zero Avenue to be upgraded to an arterial status is a necessity. This upgrade would see funding assistance from a wide variety of sources and would cut the costs to the municipality significantly. A sigh of relief would then come from all of those who love, appreciate and use the Campbell Valley Park and the McLean Scout Park and all of the horse trails in the area. A four-lane road through this magnificent rural area is beyond imagination. Now this is the “preservation of our countryside” and it is a true asset. Those who will die on 16 Avenue, if this four-lane proposal comes to fruition, will not die because of the road. Roads do not kill. People will die because of human error. In the past, much of that human error has been on display at the council table and has resulted in ill-informed, poorly researched, misguided, ill-conceived, ill-advised and wrongly motivated decisions being made, without a solid base in reason, reality or right. It must not happen again. To err is human. To make the same mistake, in the face of so much valid information, would be a crime. Former mayor Kurt Alberts said in 2004 that the long-term future of the corridor may well be as a connecting east-west highway paid for by the region. “The ultimate solution is to widen the road (Zero Avenue). It will cost millions of dollars. It’s basically a one-sided road in terms of driveways. It is ideal for a major east-west corridor. In the future, it makes sense.” That was in 2004 — and the future is now. I. McKaig, Langley

Editor: I am in favour of having the Highway of Heroes sign restored on Highway 1. The freeway will always be known as the Number One, or Trans-Canada Highway, but the sign reminds everyone that men and women died for our freedom. My mother was born in Holland in 1940, and my father was born in England in 1937. I know all too well the ugliness of war. The things the Germans did to my mother were sickening. Both my grandfathers fought to keep Europe free from the Germans. The soldiers who defended those nations, and the Canadian and American soldiers who stormed beaches when it

looked like there was no way to succeed, should be remembered. People get too comfortable and it is easy to forget that people gave up their lives for me, for us, to have our freedom. This sign represents more than soldiers in Afghanistan. I am thankful for their dedication to this country. If not for these courageous men and women, we would certainly live in a different world. This sign should be a constant reminder that we are lucky to have what we have. I will gladly, with my own money, contribute to having the sign re-erected to display the courageous actions of people from the

1940s into the present. Defending our freedom against those who would take it away because they do not understand it, or have a belief other than ours, is worth the fight. Too many people are in a slumbering state and have no idea what is happening around them. Wake up — or when you do it will be too late. We need to do more for our soldiers. With Remembrance Day fast approaching, everyone should get out of their comfy, warm homes and participate in a ceremony at a local Legion or cenotaph, rain or shine. Rob Gaw, Langley

Thank You Editor: Thank you to The Times, Sawbuck’s Pub and to Simon King for helping to make our comedy fund raiser on Sunday, Sept. 30 such a huge success. The money we raised will greatly help the youth mentorship program for our pantomime Robinson Crusoe & the Pirates this December. What a gem Sawbuck’s Pub is. The help they gave us was over and above anything we expected. Simon King — who donated his time and talent — won a rousing ovation for his set and gained a bunch of new fans. Many came to our event because they saw the information you published and also featured online. So again, we thank you for helping support the arts as we go through one of the most beleaguered episodes in our history. Ellie King, Royal Canadian Theatre Company

Move Traffic Editor: Charlie Fox, get off the bandwagon Yes, 16 Avenue backs up, but it is OK. It backs up because of traffic volumes, but at least it moves. Do you know why that volume is there? Because Langley Township council approved speed bumps on Zero Avenue and allowed so many stop lights on Fraser Road (aka Fraser Highway, what a misnomer). The accidents are caused by morons who don’t or won’t adhere to the road laws, and get frustrated by the stupidity of the lights and bumps. Shake your head. Stop trying to think of ways to slow it down, and start looking for ways to streamline the traffic and keep it flowing. D. Atkinson, Langley

Blacktop politics are alive and well

from PAGE 12

The estimate for the current fiscal year is $9.7 million, an increase to try to catch up with the pine beetle disaster. Crown forest inventory has indeed fallen behind due to rapid shifts caused by unprecedented insect and fire damage. But has spending been slashed as Dix claims? No. It has increased. Next up was Premier Christy Clark, in full campaign mode. In the Gordon Campbell tradition, she brought the goodies out in her speech to close the convention. More than $200 million has been scraped together to “accelerate” capital projects at schools, hospitals and other facilities across the province. These projects were already on the books, but they’ve been moved up for obvious political purposes. Or at least the announcements will be moved up. Four-laning of the last narrow stretches of the Trans-Canada Highway east of Kamloops will continue over 10 years. This is a federal-provincial project that will

eventually be finished, regardless of who is governing in Victoria or Ottawa. It includes some of the most staggeringly expensive road building in Canada, in the Kicking Horse Pass, a short section that could require two tunnels and up to 12 more bridges. Clark also announced a longrange plan to replace the George Massey tunnel under the Fraser River. It will likely be a bridge, because the tunnel is a bottleneck not only for Highway 99, but also for large ships going up-river. This is another project that will proceed eventually, and there is no specific financial commitment yet. I haven’t found any outright false claims in Clark’s presentation, just the kind of creative accounting and blacktop politics familiar to B.C. voters. As always, I’m pleased to hear from people with specific corrections. For now, call it a tie. Neither speech represents a proud moment for our provincial leadership.

Cross-border shopping resolution fails The cash drain on local businesses from cross-border shopping inspired one UBCM resolution that generated debate. Castlegar council proposed a resolution to lobby the federal government to rescind its recent loosening of overnight duty free limits,

A Starting Point for Langley’s homeless Oldest homeless person is 89, youngest is 11

Monique TaMMinga Times Reporter

The name says it all -- Starting Point. Langley’s homeless outreach services in partnership with Aldergrove Neighbourhood Services has opened up an office in the heart of Langley City, on Eastleigh Crescent, that is a drop-in spot for those in need, said outreach worker Fraser Holland.

A one stop-shop, if you will, for young and old looking for help with filling out welfare forms, tax returns (which are now required to receive welfare) and to find housing or emergency help of all kinds, said Holland. “Before I was out in the community at different locations, from the soup kitchens to the bush and I was hard to track down,” said Holland. “Now, people can come here five days a week and there will always be an outreach worker here.” The success of the outreach program has allowed Stepping Stone to hire a fourth outreach worker. His function is mainly to work with the homeless at the

s ' e i l r Cha

Gateway of Hope. Langley’s homeless population is growing. Holland said his oldest client is 89 years old. Here’s another telling number: Out of the hundreds Holland works with, 255 are 55 and older. “That means I’m dealing with cognitive issues and other age related health problems,” he said. As they got older and stuck in their addictions, along with age related issues, they become harder and harder to house, he said. Just through word of mouth, they have already had 280 different people through the doors of Starting Point. In the meantime, the Gateway of Hope homeless shelter is run-

ning at 108 per cent. “We have to look at prevention, making sure youth get the help the need before being homeless becomes entrenched in them,” he said. That’s where ANS comes in, with their youngest client being 11 years old. Alison Cartier, ANS youth housing and placement support worker, said her role is to prevent youth from living on the streets. “When home isn’t an option, youth can come to us here and we can do housing searches together, find a safe place to live and set up a life plan,” she said. Because there is no shelter for youth, a lot of teens will couch surf so they can stay in

Langley lacks affordable housing from PAGE 14

Funding for the Starting Point office was secured through Metro’s Homeless Partnering Strategy. Last year’s homeless count showed an increase of homeless in Langley. It’s through Stepping Stone that the outreach program came to Langley in 2006, bringing Holland on board. He’s helped hundreds of homeless find housing, act as a mediator between landlord and tenant and continually follows up with his clients providing support so they stay housed and safe. Many people would arrive at Stepping Stone’s clubhouse or at the soup kitchens looking for Holland. “This office is a great location. It’s very close to the Ministry office and in the heart of where a lot of homeless are,” said Janet Burden, executive director of Stepping Stone. Holland has been joined by Emily Aldcroft who has been working with Langley’s female homeless and with the local prostitutes. They are more willing to trust a female, Holland said. Her work could explain why nearly half the people using the shelter are women now — only 15 per cent of the beds were used by females in years past.

NOT ENOUGH HOUSING

For years, a Langley man lived in, what outreach worker Fraser Holland called, a ‘glorified shed’ paying $500 per month for a shack with no running water. Holland has since set the man up in a better housing situation. This situation is all over Langley with people paying rent to live in squabbles. In a dilapidated home, since knocked down at 198 Street

and 56 Avenue, rent was $800 and walls were down to studs, there were holes in the roof, he said. Many of the smaller bungalows in Langley City, that once could house a group of roommates, have all been torn down to make way for condos. “We have lost a portion of our housing,” said Burden. “The lack of affordable housing is the biggest issue we have in Langley.” It’s something outreach workers are striving to change. The average rent is $725 and basic welfare is around $610.

Miranda GATHERCOLE/Langley Times

Paralympic athlete Braedon Dolfo signs autographs for local fans at the Sports Day In Canada celebration at Willoughby Community Park on Saturday.

Milner Gardens will be hosting a blanket drive for Gateway of Hope from Oct. 1 to 8. They will be collecting new and nearly new cleaned blankets at their Saturday, Oct. 6 market. Their hope is to have a huge bed full of blankets at their nursery. They will also be accepting household items, toiletries, new undergarments, clothing, coats and jackets, boots, gloves, and hats. New blankets will also be available for purchase in store for donation. Blankets and donations will be accepted until Oct. 8. With the weather getting colder at night, those living on the streets are in need of warm boots, blankets and clothing. Milner Gardens is located at 6690 216 St.

Convenience and elegance in Pitt Meadows

A taste of boutique style at Liv42 Kerkhoff Construction is bringing a sense of community to Pitt Meadows with its newest development, Liv42. With 42 condominium homes in the project, Liv42 feels like a close-knit community. Spacious floorplans and modern features such as stainlesssteel appliances and elegant laminate flooring make your new home beautiful as well as functional. “Efficient floorplans create an affordable price point without losing quality and finishing,” says Darryl Price, vice-president of The Agency Real Estate Marketing. Nine-foot ceilings (10 feet in the living areas on the top floor) add to

the spacious feel. The composite stone slab countertops in the kitchen are beautifully complemented by a polished porcelain-tile backsplash and flat panel wood veneer or Shaker-style cabinetry. The eating bar is perfect for people who don’t have time to sit down to a meal. Liv42 is just a few blocks from the West Coast Express and minutes from Lougheed Highway. There is also shopping, dining, recreation and schools, all conveniently located right in the neighbourhood. Homes start at $136,900, with twobedroom units at $199,900. For more information, visit www.liv42.ca or call 604-460-6601.

Woolley says. “On weekends, cars stay in the parkade,” he says. “It’s very easy for people to walk around to get whatever they need.” If that’s some groceries, Thrifty Foods is on-site. If you’re looking for a workout, the Steve Nash Sports Club is available, or you can head out for a walk or run around the neighbourhood. Retail therapy is also nearby, whether you’re looking for some bargains at Winners or are in the mood to splurge on some delicious

treats at Mink A Chocolate Cafe or Menchies Frozen Yogurt. “There’s just about everything you need here,” Woolley says. There are even medical and dental offices in Morgan Crossing, along with a Flight Centre and hair salons. “It gives them time back,” Woolley says of the buyers at Morgan Crossing. “It’s a really nice place to live.” Lofts at the Summit House start at $279,900. For more information, visit www.morgancrossing.ca or call 604582-1336.

Giving you some time back at Morgan Crossing

Living the artistic life at the lofts at The Summit House by Kerry Vital

The Summit House is bringing a touch of loft style to South Surrey’s Morgan Crossing. With all the beautiful features of the other Summit House homes as well as some new details of their own, these limited-edition lofts are a cut above the rest. “These aren’t typical condos,” says Bryan Woolley, president of Fingerprint Strategies Inc. “They’re not cookiecutter at all.” Built by Larco Investments, the two-bedroom homes feature the master bedroom and living areas on the first floor with a loft on the second floor that can be used for a bedroom, media room, library, art studio or a romantic retreat. The spacious layouts are open and inviting, and feature plenty of room for entertaining or relaxing. The homes range from 1,026 to 1,261 square feet, and include huge windows to allow in plenty of natural light. “These are the only lofts available in South Surrey,” says Woolley. “There’s been a lot of interest in these great floorplans.” In fact, nearly half of the 13 lofts have already been sold. Some of the beautiful features in the lofts include gas cooktops, soft-close cabinetry in the kitchen and incredibly high ceilings at almost 22 feet. Gorgeous hardwood laminate floors are included throughout the main living areas, while the bedrooms feature carpeting that is perfect for sinking your toes into. Electric fireplaces are cozy and inviting, while the large outdoor patios and balconies give you your own outdoor space. The cabinetry and gas cooktop aren’t the only great things about the kitchens. The 1 3/4-inch quartz countertops and glass or ceramic tile backsplash are chic and modern, while the stainless-steel appliances are a gourmet’s dream. Homeowners at The Summit House are able to take advantage of some pretty lovely amenities, including a private rooftop plaza that features a community garden, barbecue and fire pit. However, one of the best features at The Summit House is the amazing mountain views from many of the suites. They have proven inspirational in many ways. “The lofts have been attracting artists and other creative types,” says Woolley. The Morgan Crossing village has

been the biggest draw to the homes, Woolley says. With tons of shopping, eateries and leisure activities in the area, there is never a shortage of things to do. “It’s so convenient,” he says, adding “it feels like a real community.” Even dogs will find their perfect place in Morgan Crossing, with its Paws Crossing dog park. The village is perfect for those looking to meet people. Larco regularly holds community events, including hockey tournaments and fashion shows. “There is a very eclectic mix of owners,” says Woolley. The range of demographics include a 19-year-old who bought the place on his own to a 92-year-old who enjoys the vibrant atmosphere of Morgan Crossing. The convenience factor is really an integral part of the community,

These are the only lofts available in South Surrey,” says Bryan Woolley, president of Fingerprint Strategies.

LOFT LIVING FROM $279,900*

MOVE IN NOW! | JUST A FEW LOFTS AVAILABLE DISCOVER THE EXCLUSIVE LOFTS AT THE VILLAGE The Lofts at The Summit House are pretty special. Ceilings as high as 22’ mean there is more than enough room to ‘swing a cat’, practice trampoline for the next summer Olympics, or master the art of aerial silks. The flexible loft space is a great bedroom, office, library, games room, man cave or whatever else you can think of. You can even shout lines of Shakespeare to your Romeo below. And naturally, a great kitchen and beautiful finishes are a given at Morgan Crossing. The best part? You’re still just a short walk away from over 60 shops & services in the dynamic Morgan Crossing Village! Village Life means something a little different to everyone. To some it’s that the coffee barista not only knows your order but your name (and your dog’s name too). To other’s it’s that you can entertain on a whim without having to rely on the contents of your fridge. Or even the fact that your car stays parked more often than not with everything you need right at your doorstep. Whatever Village Life means to you, one thing is for sure – you will live!

Charging stations coming to Langley 570 charging stations to be completed by March, 2013 Natasha JoNes Times Reporter

Electric vehicle ownership in Langley is becoming more common, and finding a place to charge the batteries is about to become easier. Both the City and Township of Langley will benefit from a grant which Metro Vancouver has received to develop a network of charging stations for electric vehicles. Earlier this year, the regional authority applied for a grant under the provincial government’s Community Charging Infrastructure Fund, with the goal of identifying 75 to 150 highlyvisible sites where electric vehicle chargers could be

“Our goal is to facilitate the creation of a network of charging stations.”

Natasha JoNes Times Reporter

On the day that TransLink confirmed a regular bus service between the new park and ride at 86 Avenue and 202 Street and the Braid Street Skytrain Station,

Township council voted unanimously to ask the transportation authority to install at least 10 bicycle lockers. The park and ride, also known as the Langley Transit Exchange, is due to open in December. On Sept. 17, only

will all be located near the main entrances to the facilities; parking stalls will be dedicated to plug-in electric vehicles. Only one vehicle can be charged at a time, taking between six and eight hours for a full charge if the battery is drained. Langley City does not know how many charging stations the funding will allow and, said CAO Francis Cheung, no decision has been made on where they will be located. Among the potential sites, he said, are the Douglas Recreation Centre, City Hall, fire hall and the new Timms Centre. Cheung said that the City is considering the business case for buying electric vehicles to replace existing staff cars. According to the Community Energy Association, by 2020 there will be 10,000 to 20,000 plug-in electric vehicles across Metro Vancouver, and 130,000 a decade later. Vancouver and Surrey already have stations that are fully operational.

hours after TransLink also announced that commuters will have to pay for parking there, council unanimously backed Councillor Charlie Fox’s motion called for TransLink to install a minimum of 10 lockers where cyclists can store

their bikes before they ride the Rapid Bus to Braid and beyond. Fox noted that the lockers, which he would like to see located in a well-lit and secure area of the park and ride, compliments TransLink’s desire to see

people access the transit exchange in a “green” way. Councillor David Davis suggested that 10 lockers probably wouldn’t be enough. “We should have them all over the place,” he said.

Darcy Rezac will speak on the topic of the power of faceto-face networking in a digital world. Rezac, a business leader and past maaging director of the Vancouver Board of Trade, is the first speaker for Trinity Western University’s School of Business Speaker Series. The first event is Oct. 11. Darcy “Research shows that face-to-face networking is in decline in our connected world,” said Rezac. “People often say we are too busy to connect in-person, and many would rather connect electronically. “Yet, it is almost impossible to develop the long-term trust required for success in business (and life) without face-to-face contact.” A McGill science graduate and John Molson School of Business

MBA, Rezac is an author, lecturer, adjunct professor and management consultant. A former business executive with Alcan and General Motors, he also served as a federal assistant deputy minister and, for 24 years, as managing director of The Vancouver Board of Trade. He and his co-authors, Judy Thomson and Gayle Hallgren, have worked with more than 200 Fortune 500 and other companies, government agencies, universities and associations on three continents. Their book, Work the Pond! was hailed ‘The Connector’s Rezac Handbook’ by guest speaker Town & Country. It has been published in Canada, the US, China, Korea and Russia. Rezac will speak from 4:30 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. at the Northwest Auditorium on the Trinity campus. Tickets are $50 and are available at twu.ca/speakerseries. TWU School of Business is the second-highest rated business program in Canada, after Queen’s University, and the top in B.C.

Only a working smoke alarm can save your life! Fire Prevention Week Oct. 7-14

Smoke alarms save lives

“Fall back” to smart home safety     

Analysis was undertaken on almost 50,000 fires that occurred in Alberta, British Columbia, and Ontario over a 5-year period involving 663 fatalities. The findings demonstrated that the death rate per 1,000 fires in the absence of a present, functioning smoke alarm was 74% greater than when a functioning smoke alarm was present.

Thanksgiving turkey fires cause for concern at 9-1-1 centre E -Comm’s fire dispatch team is warning families to be mindful of their turkey cooking  during Thanksgiving weekend. “A turkey isn’t something you typically see on a list of household fire hazards, but we get 9-1-1 calls about ovens going up in flames all the time,” says Corey Kelso, E-Comm fire dispatcher. “The result can be devastating if you’re not careful every time you have something cooking for an extended period of time.”

E-Comm has received some odd calls to 9-1-1 before – including someone wanting to know how long to cook a turkey – but a turkey fire is no joke. In fact, it is a leading cause of spikes in 9-1-1 calls over the holidays.  “A flame in your oven can start easily and escalate quickly,” says Kelso. “Oil drippings through a thin tinfoil turkey pan or bits of leftover food residue inside your oven are extremely flammable in a high temperature setting.”

As most Canadians turn back the clocks on November 4, here are some timely smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) safety tips: • When you change your clocks, test your smoke arlam. • You have less than three minutes to escape a fire.  So when smoke alarms sound, everyone must know what to do and where to go.  Having and practising an escape plan is essential. • Install one smoke alarm on every storey and outside bedrooms.  Install inside bedrooms if you sleep with doors closed.  • Ensure all smoke alarms are fully powered.  Never take out batteries or remove an alarm from ceiling due to a false alarm. • If your home has any fuel-burning devices such as a gas furnace, gas water heater, gas appliances, or an attached garage or carport, install at least one CSA-approved carbon monoxide outside all sleeping areas.  One per storey is recommended. • Replace smoke alarms every 10 years, and CO alarms every 7-10 years (depending on manufacturer) whether battery operated or hardwired into your home’s electrical system. Carbon monoxide is colourless, odourless and tasteless.  So without a CO alarm, humans cannot detect

Many fatal fires start at night Investigations into home fire deaths very often find that a smoke alarm did not sound. It may have been disconnected or not in working order. The batteries may have been dead, or someone may have taken them out. Smoke alone won’t necessarily wake you up. In fact, the fumes could put you into an even deeper sleep. Often, victims never wake

up. Seniors will often need assistance from family members to put safety measures into place. As well, family members are in the best position to reinforce the precautions necessary to help their loved ones prevent or respond to a fire. Focus on these six priorities to help aging family members protect themselves against fire in the home.

its presence.  Despite the average home having several potential sources of the deadly gas, studies show that nearly 60 per cent of Canadians have not installed a CO alarm. In addition to being impossible to detect, CO also has another nefarious trait. Symptoms of carbon monoxide exposure mimic the flu, without the fever.  It is routinely responsible for thousands of clinic and hospital visits each year, and is commonly misdiagnosed.  Prolonged or extreme exposure causes nausea, dizziness, confusion, the loss of physical mobility, brain damage and ultimately, death.  More home safety resources can be found on the www.safeathome.ca web site.

Andrew Toews (left) watches his shot and Callum Cairns (above) lines up his putt during the Vancouver Golf Tour’s weekend stop at Pagoda Ridge in Langley.

Rookie wins VGT’s Pagoda event Canadian Tour rookie Nathan Leonhardt held off Matt Daniel and Langley’s James Allenby to take top spot at the Woodland Golf Vancouver Golf Tour championship. The two-day event was held at Langley’s Pagoda Ridge. Allenby shot a blistering back nine of six-under par 31 to shoot 66 on the final day and finish in a tie for second at eight-under par 136.

Leonhardt shot an opening round 69 and followed that up with a 65 in round two to finish 10-under par 134. Leonhardt, who was in the third final pairing, had a shaky start on Sunday, bogeying the fifth hole. But he was money in the bank over the final 13 holes, closing with seven birdies and an eagle. The eagle came on the 16th hole and was followed by back-to-back birdies to put the

pressure on the final four golfers. On the amateur side of the draw, Adam Svensson won his seventh Vancouver Golf Tour event in seven starts over the two years. Svensson shot 72-71—143 to win by two strokes. ••••• Talks are underway to host the VGT’s Tour Championship again at Pagoda Ridge in 2013 and expand it to 54 holes.

Spartans stretch unbeaten streak to 20 It was a record-setting day for the Trinity Western Spartans women’s soccer team. The Spartans extended their Canada West unbeaten streak to 20 games, passing the previous mark of 19. Trinity Western’s last regular season loss was the first match of last season (Sept. 10, 2011). Since then, the team has gone 19-0-1. Their most recent victories were on Friday against the Regina Cougars and Saturday over the Saskatchewan Huskies. Both were played on the TWU campus at Rogers Field by 3-0 scores and improved the Spartans — ranked second in the country — to 7-0-0. Goalkeeper Kristen Funk also

set a new standard, breaking her own school record for consecutive minutes without allowing a goal. Thanks to the back-to-back clean sheets, Funk has not allowed a goal in 475 minutes and counting. She made four saves on Saturday and three the game before and has recorded six shutouts. Against the Huskies, Natalie Boyd opened the scoring in the 16th minute for the only goal of the first half. Trinity Western broke open the tight game with two late goals, in the 82nd minute from Jennifer Castillo off a corner kick from Jenna Di Nunzio and then five minutes later when Kristen Santema slid low to convert a perfect

pass from Krista Gommeringer. In Friday’s contest, Nikki Bryne opened the scoring in the 18th minute, picking up a loose ball between centre line and the top of the Regina box and sending a perfectly placed ball under the crossbar. The Spartans would put the game out of reach in the second half against the eighth-ranked Cougars. Gommeringer scored in the sixth straight game, heading home a perfectly placed cross from Jilian Dietrich in the 53rd minute. Including Gommeringer’s assist on Saturday, the rookie has eight goals and seven assists on the season.

Castillo got the game’s final goal with a dozen minutes remaining, getting on the end of an Alicia Tesan free kick. ••••• One game after surrendering a two-goal lead and having to settle for a 2-2 draw, the Trinity Western Spartans got back into the win column. The Spartans men’s soccer team improved to 6-0-2 after drawing the host Winnipeg Wesmen 2-2 on Saturday and winning 2-0 over the Mount Royal Cougars in Calgary. Trinity Western moved up two spots from seventh to fifth in the national rankings. “Pleased with the three points, but disappointed we didn’t get

six,” said Spartans coach Pat Rohla, referring to the fact his team squandered two points by settling for the draw in Winnipeg. “We had a workmanlike effort after a big travel day and I am very pleased with our performance, although we should have done better on restarts. “We have to find ways to take the heart out of a team earlier but overall a good performance by Brayden Gant, Spencer Schmidt and our back four looked tight again.” Schmidt came off the bench to score on a free kick in the 59th minute.

Rivermen rally for OT win Gary ahuja Times Sports

Jakob Reichert scored late and Mario Puskarich buried the double overtime winner as the Langley Rivermen salvaged a split on their weekend road trip. The junior A hockey club won 3-2 on Saturday in Salmon Arm, one night after a 2-1 loss in Merritt to the Centennials. “For the most part, the guys competed really hard,” said coach Bobby Henderson. “They showed pretty good resilience. “The guys didn’t get discouraged and just kept playing hard.” In both games, the Rivermen had the advantage when it came to shots on goal, but unfortunately, their efforts were not rewarded on the first night as they ran into a hot goaltender in Tyler Steel, who turned aside 41 of the 42 shots he faced. That included some grade A scoring chances such as back-to-back breakaways. “We had our chances, we just couldn’t get the job done,” Henderson said.

Spartans unbeaten through seven games

“We ran into a hot goalie.” The lone goal to beat Steel came on the power play, and with the goaltender on the bench for another extra attacker, as Evan Campbell ruined the shutout with 47 seconds remaining. Merritt led thanks to goals from Brandon Bruce and Derek Huisman, both of which came in the second period. James Barr was no slouch in the Langley goal either as he turned aside 36 of the 38 shots he faced. Saturday in Salmon Arm was much of the same as the Rivermen were playing from behind. Jason Trott opened the scoring for the Silverbacks in the first with a short-handed goal. In the second, Trevor Cope tied things up at one before Salmon Arm’s Evan Schwalbe — on the power play — restored the hosts advantage. Cope’s goal came on a fluke play as Aaron Dolby’s shot hit Cope’s stomach and deflected past Colin Dzijacky. The goal extended Cope’s point streak to six games. And it looked like the River-

second on a long looping shot in the 87th minute. Andrew Hicks made one save to earn the clean sheet. The previous day in Winnipeg, Trinity Western was ahead 2-0 with goals in the 17th and 19th minutes, respectively, from Jarvis Ambaka and Schmidt. But the Spartans conceded goals in the 31st minute — Adam Bromley on a free kick —  and then in second half extra time to Krzysztof Szulc to let two points slip away. “We forgot that hard work is where to get results, being willing to take the extra step to make a difference,” Rohla said. “We did not show the moxie that has been our edge. We have become too reliant on someone else to carry the load and too passive in missing opportunities.”

men were on their way to defeat before Langley cashed in on their third power play chance, and with the goalie on the bench, of the period to force overtime. Reichert took a pass from Bo Pellah on the wing, made a strong power move to the backhand and lifted a shot to the top corner past Colin Dzijacky. And after neither team could score four-on-four, the game went to double overtime and three-on-three. Both sides had glorious chances to score with the goalies standing on their heads to extend the game. One shift after Barr stretched across to rob a sure goal, the Rivermen rewarded their goalie as Campbell found Puskarich behind the defence. And the sniper made no mistake, blistering a wrist shot blocker-side for the winner. ••••• Langley (3-2-0-1) is at home at the Langley Events Centre for a pair of games this weekend, both against the Prince George Spruce Kings (4-1-1-0). The teams play Saturday at 7:15 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.

ADvERTISEMENT

You & The Law

PRESENTS Law doesn’t tolerate bullying bosses Bosses who harass, bully or verbally abuse their employees can be on the hook for big bucks. Take the ground-breaking decision of the BC Court of Appeal in late 2006 in the “million-dollar Mountie” case. The court upheld a damage award of just under $1million for Nancy S., an RCMP officer who was the target of angry outbursts and cutting comments by her supervisor. Being mistreated over an extended period of time led to a deep depression which effectively ended her career. She had become part of a close-knit RCMP community of some 20 members and received excellent evaluations from her first two commanding officers. Her troubles began a few months after staff Sergeant S. became the officer in charge of her detachment. Over the next two years, she was subjected to harassing conduct by the staff Sergeant, which included “angry outbursts” and “intemperate, and at times, unreasonable behaviour.” He made negative comments about her pregnancy leave and her abilities, put her down in front of co-workers, and used harsh language with her. After two years of this, Nancy had become quite ill. She lost 20 pounds, was unable to sleep or eat, and had become clinically depressed. Her doctor advised her to go on sick leave, and she eventually accepted a medical discharge. The court decided the staff Sergeant’s harassing conduct created “the troubled work environment that [she] experienced.” The harassment she suffered was “the proximate cause of her depression, which in turn, ended her career in the RCMP.” She was left unemployable in the sense that she could only work part-time doing uncomplicated tasks in a stress-free environment. The court concluded that the tort or civil wrong of negligent infliction of mental suffering or harm had been established. The provincial government (responsible for her boss’ employment in BC) was liable for his

conduct and payment of the damages. Since that case, there’s been a flurry of media reports on sexual and harassment claims by other female members of the RCMP, some of which are on their way to court. But what gets lost in the discussion is that it’s not about the RCMP – it’s about the fact that harassment (sexual or otherwise) and bullying isn’t tolerated in the workplace, regardless who the employer is. The law imposes a duty on employers to provide a workplace environment free of harassment and bullying. Depending on the specific situation, failure to do so may allow affected employees to seek redress before human rights tribunals (a Dairy Queen employee recently got $36,000 after eight months of harassment from co-workers), claim workers’ compensation under new rules just introduced in BC, or seek compensation in court. Bottom line? Bosses who are overly aggressive or pursue hostile management styles risk liability if an employee is hurt and their ability to earn a living suffers as a result. Bullying behaviour by bosses can also trigger claims of “constructive dismissal.” This refers to situations where intolerable working conditions or a demotion amount to legal justification for the employee to quit and get compensation for wrongful dismissal. In several cases, employees have received damages after quitting because of severe workplace bullying. Employers must take care to control verbal and psychological abuse in the workplace – or face the consequences. If you face serious bullying or harassment at work and are unsure of your rights, consider consulting your lawyer. Written by Janice Mucalov, LL.B. with contribution by Milne Selkirk.

Public Notice of Information Session

Bears defence leads the way to victory A dominant defensive performance helped the North Langley Bears improve to 4-1 with a 29-0 victory over the Mission Niners in atom football action on Saturday. The Bears defence, led by Chris Morrison and Jaxon Stebbings, did not allow a single first down, while Keaghan Hurley came up with a fumble recovery. Manny Foitou, Jayden Bailey, Jacob Evans and Jedakai Hurley all came up with great tackles. Mathieu Gale (five yards) and Jun McLean (60 yards) scored first half touchdowns while Callum Middleton (47 yards) and Marcus Stang (35 yards) ran for second-half

scores. Kode Kondo and Dakota Brown provided great tackles on the last run. Tyson Hoy kicked a pair of two-point converts while Josh Harris ran another convert in. ••••• The North Langley junior bantam Bears improved to 2-2 with a convincing 38-14 win over Mission. Zander Bailey scored twice — a fumble recovery for one and a 100-yard touchdown run for the other — while quarterback Brett Christensen connected with Andy Hanlen on a long touchdown pass. Pablo Wigwigan also ran for a pair of touchdowns while James Limoges also scored on a fumble return.

Yun-Jae Boo picked off a pair of Mission passes while Ryan Barthelson had another interception and made several key tackles. ••••• Quarterback Ken McLean hooked up through the air with Cadeyrn Barthelson for a touchdown but that was not enough as the North Langley peewee Bears lost 28-6 to the Mission Niners.

Death is a fact of life. When we die, someone will be responsible for our final wishes. It is not an easy task and most people struggle with the difficult decision making. Fortunately, we have the solution for you and your loved ones. Prearranging your own funeral is a wise and responsible decision. Planning ahead gives you and your family peace of mind, and most importantly, will make things easier for loved ones in their time of grief. By prearranging your funeral you can choose the type of service you want at a cost you can afford. On your death, your family does not have to worry about secondguessing your wishes or paying for a funeral at an emotional time - everything is taken care of.

We would like to introduce two new products that can help alleviate the financial burden of a funeral. For example, prearranging for someone age 50 years can cost as little as $16 per month. For someone age 60 years it can cost as little as $19 per month. These plans are affordable and they will relieve the financial burden on the family while freezing escalating funeral costs.

Watch for our INSERT in Tuesday’s Langley Times.

To help you begin, we are offering a complimentary Dignity Memorial Personal Planning Guide. In addition, we will extend a 12% savings on the HST for entrusting us with your funeral prearrangements. This will be in effect until November 30, 2012. To receive a copy of the guide please contact Victory Memorial Park and Funeral Centre.
