Threatening text locked down LFAS
Monique TaMMinga Times Reporter

Hundreds of students listen to a speech by Daniel Germain, president and founder of Breakfast Clubs of Canada, during World Food Day events at the Langley Events Centre on Tuesday, Oct. 16.
It was a threatening text message sent to a Langley Fine Arts school student which prompted a lockdown on Wednesday morning, Oct. 17. Langley RCMP said that a female student received the text from a 32-year-old Langley man who is believed to be known to the student. The lockdown was lifted at 11:45 a.m. with several police attending the school. After receiving the text, the student reported it to the school principal who felt there was enough of a concern for student safety for police to be alerted, said Const. Craig van Herk, media relations officer for Langley RCMP. “It was out of an abundance of caution” that the principal decided to lock down the school while police began their investigation, van Herk said. Officers located the person they believe sent the text, and now have a 32-year-old Langley man in custody. The man has been charged with uttering threats. Police continue to investigate the connection between the youth and the accused.
Accused killer maintains his innocence Robert Bradshaw claims he confessed to murder to give another man street cred Monique TaMMinga Times Reporter
In the 20 or so days of Robert Bradshaw’s Supreme Court trial for the first degree murders of Marc Bontkes and Laura Lamoureux, the jury has heard about what the drug culture in Langley has done to many lives, said the Crown in their closing arguments. “It’s a world full of lies, violence, criminality,” said Crown counsel Chris McPherson on Monday morning. “It’s filled with everything we

can’t imagine or fathom. But it’s in this world that two lives were lost and the evidence has shown that Roy Thielen killed Laura Lamoureux and Bradshaw killed Marc Bontkes. Crown hasn’t proved beyond a reasonable doubt that Bradshaw had anything to do with the murders, said Bradshaw’s lawyer Paul McMurray in his closing arguments. McMurray told a Supreme Court jury on that Crown is relying heavily on the “unreliable” evidence of convicted murderer Roy Thielen, who has already
pleaded guilty to both murders. “Thielen’s objective is to minimize his consequences and to extricate [close friend] Michelle Motola as much as he can by escalating Bradshaw’s role,” McMurray told the jury in his closing arguments on Monday. Motola, 21, has already pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the killing of Bontkes and is serving six years. “Mr. Thielen was and is a liar. His statements have been contradicted by others . . .” Thielen told an undercover police officer posing as a crime boss that he killed both himself, including torturing Bontkes. But after his arrest he implicated Bradshaw as the driver in Lamoureux’s murder and the shooter in Bontkes’ death.

“The only evidence that looks bad for Bradshaw is the taped conversations because it sounds like he admits to the killings,” said McMurray. Police videotaped a conversation Thielen and Bradshaw had in a hotel room after homicide investigators approached Bradshaw about the murders in July 2010. His lawyer suggested to the jury that Bradshaw feared for his safety if he didn’t go along and that he agreed to implicate himself to help out Motola, whom he still had feelings for. Bradshaw took the stand in New Westminster on Thursday and told a Supreme Court jury that he had nothing to do with the murders. Bontkes and Lamoureux were
both shot dead within five days of each other in March, 2009. In the trial, it was learned that both murder victims had robbed the drug lines Bradshaw and Thielen worked for. There is also evidence that Motola accused Bontkes and Lamoureux of kidnapping and torturing her before the murders. That accusation has not been proven. Bradshaw, an admitted drug dealer who worked for a diala-dope line at the time, was taped by police in an undercover operation talking about the murders and offering details about his role in the two killings during a conversation with continued, PAGE 4

‘Asia truly is our future’: Polak Miranda Gathercole Times Reporter
When talks began for the Roberts Bank Rail Corridor, Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender pulled a loonie out of his pocket as the symbolic first contribution from the City of Langley. On Friday morning he made the final payment: A toonie. “Please spend it wisely,” he said with a laugh as he presented the coin to Ed Fast, minister of international trade and minister for the Asia-Pacific Gateway, in recognition of the construction that’s underway along Production Boulevard and 54 Avenue on the Langley/ Surrey border. It is part of the combo project, a major portion of the $307 million Roberts Bank Rail Corridor program. It calls for the construction of three overpasses at 192 Street, 54 Avenue and 196 Street to replace level rail crossings. This will reduce the impact of longer and more frequent trains from Port Metro Vancouver terminals in Delta as trade with the Asia-Pacific increases in the future. At a cost of $121.5 million for the combo project, $8.3 million is being contributed

by the City of Langley and $5.5 from the Township. Other funding is coming from the City of Surrey, the province, the federal government and Port Metro Vancouver. Ultimately, the project will connect Roberts Bank, Canada’s largest container facility and coal terminal, with the North American rail network, creating the Asia-Pacific Gateway for exports. The Asia-Pacific countries represent huge markets, with economic growth rates two to three times the global average. The goal is to make Canada’s Asia-Pacific the best transportation network, Fast said. “That’s where our future lies, accessing these booming economies of the Asia-Pacific that we have neglected for far too long,” he said. “This infrastructure investment will allow us to get our products, our goods out to market in the Asia Pacific in a more efficient manner, and of course get goods into Canada in the same way.” “Asia truly is our future,” said Langley MLA Mary Polak, the minister of transportation and infrastructure “Talk is cheap.

A 73-year-old Aldergrove man has been charged with several property crimes, as well as assaulting a police officer. After a lengthy investigation, charges have been laid against two Langley men, aged 73 and 30, believed to be responsible for a number of property crimes, including stealing a brand new truck during a test drive, and stealing a bulldozer and a trailer.

Thielen in a hotel room and again at a park bench in July 2010. Thielen has already pleaded guilty to the murders and is serving a life sentence. He refused to testify at Bradshaw’s trial and a show cause hearing for contempt of court was expected to take place. At the time of the killings, Motola was dating and living with Bradshaw. They were together around six weeks. Police had set up Thielen in an undercover sting, during which they made him believe he was joining an organized gang. Police taped a conversation between Thielen and Bradshaw going over what roles the two had played in the murders and whether they had covered their tracks well enough to make sure police couldn’t implicate them. Bradshaw speaks of various details, reassuring Thielen that during Bontkes’ mur-
der (which took place in Hi Knoll Park) they both wore gloves. However, Lamoureux’ murder happened in a residential neighbourhood, so someone may have witnessed it, Bradshaw tells Thielen. “There were houses around us,” Bradshaw can be heard in the video surveillance. In a complicated defence, Bradshaw claims that Thielen asked him to go along with “a story” that implicated him in the murders. The story Thielen gave him about how both murders happened was to be relayed to the gang crime boss to give Thielen credits with the gang and to show Thielen had tied up all loose ends. The story was relayed to Bradshaw in an eight minute conversation in a hotel bathroom, Bradshaw claims. “If you didn’t have any involvement why agree to implicate yourself?” asked McMurray. “I was more concerned of the reper-
cussions if I didn’t. It was less harmful to just agree,” said Bradshaw. While on the stand, Bradshaw said he didn’t do drugs himself, just marijuana. As a drug dealer for two years in Langley, he sold a lot but never took part, saying he did around 200 to 300 deals a day. He said he never stashed the gun used to murder both victims. He also said he knew nothing about Bontkes, nor had he ever met him. He said he barely had a relationship with Thielen. “Do you admit to killing Marc Bontkes?” McMurray asked Bradshaw. “No. I was giving him (Thielen) an out to exclude Michelle and include myself. It was part of the story,” he said. In cross examining Bradshaw, the Crown questioned why Bradshaw would allow himself to take the fall for two murders he didn’t commit. “Thielen is some-

one you said you saw about once a month selling dope to or giving a ride to and at some point he said, ‘oh by the way I implicated you in two murders?” asked Crown Chris McPherson. “He wanted me as backup,” Bradshaw responded. Crown asked the jury to reject Bradshaw’s evidence because he is making it up to make it fit with the evidence the jury has already been presented. McPherson told the jury that Bradshaw’s evidence that he was just going along with a story of murders that Thielen told him makes no sense at all. “As for the defence arguing that Thielen was just trying to minimize his role, that also doesn’t make sense. “By implicating Bradshaw it makes him a rat in jail and he knows he is already serving a life sentence. Why would he do that to himself?” “This man (Bradshaw) admitted to being involved in the killing of Lamoureux and Bontkes in a hotel room and again at a park bench,” he said of the police taped conversations the two had that was brought into evidence in the trial. Bradshaw’s claims that he was just going along with a story he was told by Thielen to implicate himself in the murders “makes no sense.” McPherson tells the jury to reject Bradshaw’s evidence because “he’s making it up to make it fit with the evidence you have before you.” “Bradshaw confesses to details of the murder. Thielen gets details from a man who was there, from someone who wasn’t a heavy drug user and remembered “as clear as f****** day.” He went on to say Bradshaw had intimate details of the murders, and refreshed Thielen’s memory of those details when Thielen couldn’t remember.” Judge Bryan Greyell will instruct the jury Tuesday morning (today) and then they will deliberate and come back with a verdict.

Police called after tempers flare following B.C. Football Conference game Gary ahuja Times Sports
Ugliness marred the end of the Langley Rams semifinal playoff victory. A near-brawl broke out at the conclusion of the Rams junior football game on Saturday night at McLeod Park. After the Rams 33-0 victory over Victoria’s Westshore Rebels (see page 39 for more) in B.C. Football Conference playoff action, Langley coach Jeff Alamolhoda elected to have his players stay on the sideline and forego the traditional postgame handshake. This resulted in players, coaches and team officials from both sides clashing directly in front of the McLeod Park bleachers. There was pushing and shoving as well as yelling and profanity. “There was no way we were going to shake hands,” Alamolhoda said. “As soon as they saw we sent our guys off the field, they charged us.” Alamolhoda said he chose that because of threats the Rebels players and coaches had made during the latter stages of the game. There were also several chippy plays, especially in the second half when Langley put the game
out of reach. One player from each side was ejected in the fourth quarter. “As a coach, you have a sense and I just had that sense that they were going to try and do something,” Alamolhoda said. “It is what it is. If we had gone out for a handshake, a brawl would have broke out. It was clear one way or another, they were going to try and fight us.” When contacted on Monday morning, Rebels coach John Cardilicchia did not want to get too far into what had happened less than 48 hours earlier. “I was just livid that they left the field without shaking hands,” he said. “It was never my intention for our teams to come together and clash like that. I am embarrassed by it.” “We were prepared to shake hands like gentlemen; when we looked across, they were leaving the field and I just couldn’t believe it,” Cardilicchia added. “In my 22 years of coaching, I have never ever seen that; I have always shaken hands, we have never had a problem. “My record speaks for itself.” Last week, Cardillicchia was named the BCFC coach of the year.

been stolen. It was returned to the owner. The Dodge pickup truck was recovered at a residence of a relative to the older man. The vehicle was returned to the dealership. Additionally, when police arrived on the property and announced they would be executing the search warrant, the elderly man allegedly punched one of the officers in the face. Roeloff Dendyver, 73, is charged with public mischief, assaulting a peace officer and possession of stolen property. Derek Hall, 30, is charged with theft of a motor vehicle, two counts of possession of stolen property and public mischief. The two are also jointly charged with theft of a motor vehicle, and two counts of possession of stolen property. They will next appear in Surrey Provincial Court on Oct. 29.
Cardillicchia also denied making any threats. “There was no way I would threaten a kid, I was shocked to hear that,” the coach said. He did admit to yelling at Rams quarterback Greg Bowcott to “buckle up your chin strap real tight because we are coming.”
Langley RCMP did respond to the scene on Saturday after fielding several calls about the incident. Const. Craig Van Herk said by the time police arrived, the situation was mostly under control by the league’s officials. The officers remained on the scene while the Rebels packed up
their equipment and boarded the bus back to Victoria. Van Herk said there were no charges or arrests. With the victory, the Rams advance to their second straight Cullen Cup as they will play the Vancouver Island Raiders for the league championship on Saturday (Oct. 27) in Nanaimo.

Does Mayor Jack Froese have the legal right to prohibit a councillor from quizzing a speaker at a public hearing? Councillor Kim Richter asked for a legal opinion after she was ruled out of order by Froese during a public hearing on Oct. 15 Froese made the same ruling on questions from Councillors Charlie Fox and Steve Ferguson, but only Richter challenged him after he stopped her from asking a question that apparently did not pertain directly to the discussion at a hearing. Later in the meeting, Richter presented a motion seeking a legal opinion, charging that the “muzzling” of council members “does not demonstrate good governance or good service to the public.” Before the motion could be debated, Councillor Bob Long suggested that the matter be referred to council’s Oct. 29 workshop. Before every public hearing, the mayor or senior planner reads a preamble that spells out council’s responsibilities,
and those of the public. “Decorum must be maintained at all times (and) this includes refraining from applause, booing or Jack heckling.” Froese On Monday, Froese read: “Council members should not express their views nor debate the bylaws, but may question speakers to clarify particular points in the submissions.” During a hearing to remove age restrictions from a new development in the 7700 block of 200 Street, Richter had wanted to ask speaker Jacob de Raadt a question. Richter said later that she was interested in hearing what de Raadt, a professional engineer, had to say on Universal Design, a concept to produce buildings, products and environments that are accessible both to the able-bodied ad those with a disability. De Raadt was one of a
handful of speakers who support Universal Design and Safer Homes Standards. “I was interested in hearing his opinion on Kim the matter,” Richter Richter said later. She chided the mayor for restricting members of the public from expressing themselves in council chambers. “But he’s crossed the line when he restricts duly elected councillors from asking questions of the public. “I am very disappointed in how this mayor runs a public meeting. “We are servants of the people we represent and should always respect that. I believe the mayor owes me and the public an apology.” It was de Raadt whom Froese asked several times to respect the five-minute limit on speakers at public hearings.

The petition to approve burying utility poles and wires in Fort Langley’s commercial core has narrowly passed. On Oct. 15, Township council gave first three readings to a bylaw approving the removal of the utility poles and cable, electricity and phone wires. The Local Area Service (LAS) petition acquired the backing of 51.5 per cent of the owners of commercial property on Glover Road from just south of 96 Avenue to the northern most commercial properties on Glover Road (including the Township-owned Bedford House restaurant building). The area also covers half a block of Mavis Street to River Road. The other Township properties are the northeast corner of the Bedford Landing property, and 23353 Mavis Street. The petition is the initiative of the Fort Langley Business Improvement Association whose president is Eric Woodward. Of the 33 properties in the LAS, three are owned by the Township. “They were excluded from both the voting and total numbers calculated to ensure that it’s the property owners who make the determination,” administrator Mark Bakken said. Of the properties remaining, Woodward owns 12. He and the owners of five other commercial properties supported the petition.

Judge had little choice in flagger’s death case
plethora of politicians were on hand Friday morning, to mark the surprisingly swift progress on the “combo” overpass project. This project may turn out to be the most comprehensive, expensive and perhaps even most successful of all the improvements being made along the rail line to Roberts Bank. The heavy presence of politicians emphasized the partnership that is making these projects possible. The federal government, first under Prime Minister Paul Martin, and since 2006 under Prime Minister Stephen Harper, has made improvements along the rail line a high priority. The government is putting about $75 million into projects which will total $307 million. They stretch from the port rail yard all the way to 232 Street. The province has also committed a great deal of money, and Langley MLAs Mary Polak (who was present as minister of transportation) and Rich Coleman played a key role. When Langley residents rose in alarm at plans to expand the port without doing anything to mitigate additional rail traffic through Langley, they went to bat for this community, way back in 2005. All local governments from Delta to Langley Township have put in money and are managing various projects along the line. Port Metro Vancouver and the railways, who will benefit greatly from this investment, have also added funds to the overall project. The combo project involves three overpasses — 192 Street, 54 Avenue and along the 196 Street alignment. This latter one involves building new roads and putting an overpass over both the rail line and Langley Bypass. It even includes improvements to roads and traffic signals as far north as 196 Street and 64 Avenue. A system of warning signs to advise drivers when a train is approaching should give local residents adequate chances to avoid getting snarled in traffic jams as trains pass by. The three major roads of Fraser Highway, 200 Street and Highway 10 will not have overpasses in place. In concert with the Mufford overpass, which will connect 64 Avenue traffic to Glover Road, there will be many more alternatives available to Langley drivers. Despite all the money being spent, this project should not be seen as the final solution. If port traffic continues to grow, there will have to be more overpasses built in the future. An overpass along Highway 10 must be next on the list.

$1,500 fine in exchange for a human life seems to be an appallingly unbalanced equation — particularly when it emanates from the court. Yet that was the sentence handed to driver Thor Shay of Mission, who fatally struck flagger Don Cain of Aldergrove in a construction zone in July 2010. Judge Jill Rounthwaite also issued Shay a one-year driving ban. Following emotional testimony that even drew tears from the judge, Rounthwaite acknowledged to family members in court that the sentence was “laughable in comparison to the death of your son and brother. “There is nothing that the court can do that can possibly make it better or can in any way compensate, or be sufficient for, the death of a loved one,” Rounthwaite said. The public reaction to this case was predictable. People were outraged, and offended. How can a driver take a life with his vehicle, and the court only takes his licence away for 12 months, and gives him a fine worth about as much as a worn-out used car? Little wonder people lose faith in the so-called justice system. Yet the judge was essentially correct when she indicated she was bound by the law. Shay was charged with driving without due care and attention. That falls under the provincial Motor Vehicle Act. It is not a Criminal Code offence, which generally are subject to more harsh penalties than provincial driving legislation. Crown counsel could have laid a charge of dangerous driving, but then they’d have to prove it beyond a reasonable doubt. The offence of criminal negligence requires even greater proof. continued, PAGE 10 The Langley Times is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry.

Design guidelines don’t help livability Editor: One of the best things about Fort Langley is that it is a walkable community. This means that, for a good number of residents, the commercial and recreational areas of the village are within walking distance of their homes. Visitors find that the commercial streets (of which there are very few) can be perused in a reasonable amount of time without becoming exhausted and without having to park their cars more than once. People usually don’t have to be too concerned about vehicle traffic (except for dump trucks and motorcycles) or being jostled by harried pedestrians rushing around during their lunch hours. The village does not have wide expanses of land devoted to vehicle parking, and commercial retail establishments are generally narrow and closely aligned. The pace of life is slower in Fort Langley simply because it is a smaller community. Another valuable asset Fort Langley has is the mature treed green space, especially along Glover Road, nearby residential lots and the parkland along Bedford Channel. Walkability has made Fort Langley a good place to live and work; it has helped make Fort Langley liveable. A wealthier surrounding community and the river have made Fort Langley more attractive than the commercial areas along Fraser Highway in Langley City and Aldergrove. But livability and heritage are not interchangeable terms. Some group of people decided within the last 20 years that Fort Langley should adopt a “boom town” look and design guidelines have tried to accommodate this style. The boom town look
is often defined as being represented by commercial buildings of one, two or three storeys, with grand facades hiding simple wooden buildings. Boom towns are characterized by hastilybuilt structures that seem temporary, as opposed to brick or stone buildings that give the impression of permanence and wealth. Boom towns are built quickly to cash in on rapid population expansion, whether caused by a gold rush or transportation expansion. The commercial area of Fort Langley is in danger of falling victim to indiscriminate preservation of a contrived heritage. Most of the buildings currently in the commercial area of Fort Langley were not built during the gold rush era or at any time that can be identified as a boom time, even though the recent buildings have tried to emulate this era, probably because of the guildelines. Most of the commercial space along Glover Road between Mavis and 96 Avenue is in buildings that are younger than 60 years of age — check the B.C. Assessment Authority for this information. The Fort (on the edge of the commercial area), the railway station, the community hall and perhaps two or three retail buildings are the only authentic historical buildings over 80 years old left in the commercial area. The lumber mill built in the 1920s is long gone and the village has shifted from being a working class community to a more gentrified one. The boom time look adopted in design guidelines of 20 years ago may not be best suited to existing or future generations. Commercial developments are facing
a whole host of new considerations that were never remotely on the minds of pioneers to the area. These new factors include, among other things: The need to preserve farmland while accommodating urban growth; minimizing the environmental footprint of buildings, handling an abundance of motor vehicles, dealing with antiquated infrastructure, purchasing scarce land at high prices, construction, building code and material changes, potential earthquakes and the mandate to be accessible for all citizens. The heritage guidelines may prevent more eclectic experiments in architecture. Age alone should not make something worth keeping — there was ugly and poorly-constructed architecture in the past, as there is now. Design guidelines might act as a starting point for new buildings, but the commercial area of Fort Langley is not a museum. Romanticizing the past ignores the problems and failures of that past, and ignoring problems of bad architecture means that we are bound to preserve rather than learn from our mistakes. Hopefully Fort Langley community members will engage in reasonable discussion of the evolution of the liveable village and be less adamant about maintaining a particular look. Slavish devotion to rigid design guidelines may end up preventing development that could be wonderfully beneficial to the community. There are probably ways to honour the history of Fort Langley, while at the same time adapting to a changing reality and the demands of population growth. Christine Burdeniuk, Langley
Hockey lockout a protracted fight over our money Editor: The NHL and the Players’ Association are fighting over the monies we give them because of our love for hockey. The TV and radio stations continue to talk about this issue, because they benefit financially from NHL hockey. In the end, should they come back, and they will, it will be you and I who will continue to pay them the big salaries they
make, including the monies made by TV and radio. To us it is a hockey game. To the NHL and the Players’ Association, it is a game to take more of our money. That is the real issue. It is not about how much money any one player is making. It is about where the money they are making comes from.
Both sides are fighting over our money. I say tell them both to stick it. I have nothing more to say about this, and I hope you won’t either. They will miss us when we leave more than we will miss them. Trust me.

Man jumps in to fracas Editor: On Saturday, Oct. 13, my husband approached a group of belligerent male youths on 208 Street, near Riders liquor store. They were shouting profanities at passersby. He told them to stop; in turn he was jumped by eight males. The reason I am writing is I would like to thank the man in the company pickup truck that came to his aid. In the midst of this horrible act, I was elated to know that there are still caring people who go above and beyond, compromising their own safety to help someone in need. I wish I had his name to thank him personally. Without him this situation would have been far worse than it was. I hope he reads this. Name withheld by request
Keep animals arm’s length Editor: Two things are happening in Mike Harvey’s letter (The Times, Oct. 11). The first one is caring and tenderness for the calf, which is admirable. The second is the anthromorphization of the animal, giving it human feelings and qualities. Meat animals are, in the farming of them, kept at arm’s length — otherwise the prairies and the vast lands in Brazil and elsewhere would be nothing but a very big pet shop. In the raising of these animals, the utmost care is taken to keep them in good health and to be sold at a profitable price. As for the people who had tethered this calf, they should be prohibited from owning any animals, as it seems that they have no care or tenderness or concept of the raising livestock.

Sentences like this one point to need to overhaul justice system from PAGE 8
In order to pursue either, there would have to be strong evidence of “dangerous” driving. There was none. Shay said he had been blinded by the sun, and didn’t see Cain. Investigators challenged that, and also pointed out his windshield was dirty and cracked. Regardless of the contributing Don Cain factors, it would seem this was a case of a momentary lapse of driving attention. There was no suggestion he was driving erratically, or speeding, or exhibiting any other behaviour that would support the dangerous driving charge. Crown accepted his guilty plea to the driving without due care charge, and that left the judge with sentencing provisions under the law.

Reaching out to Guinea A local teacher is raising funds to buy academic supplies and athletic gear for students in his homeland Monique TaMMinga Times Reporter
H.D. Stafford phys ed and French teacher Djiba Camara will travel to his home country of Guinea in November, where he will be met by local police to help ensure his safety as he tries to get school supplies to students who desperately need them. The popular Langley teacher and international soccer coach is hoping Langley residents will help him get these materials to students so they can have some of the chances that so many have here in Langley. “They have nothing,” said Camara who returned to his home country of Guinea-Conakry in West Africa — one of the poorest, most corrupt countries in the world — for the first time in 30 years last year. He went home for the first time in three decades to say goodbye to his 98-year-old mother.
She has severe Alzheimer’s — a disease his country doesn’t have a name for, or really even understand. His mother is still alive but his visit opened his eyes to the overwhelming need there and gave him a desire to gelp. “Chalk is 5,000 francs so they use the chalk right down to the dust,” he explained. “Paper is very difficult to find and so expensive. They have nothing, so I said I have to do something.” Schoolboys use plastic bags and rags they find at the local garbage dump to make soccer balls. A video that Camara made of his visit to the local schools can be found on YouTube. It shows the boys playing in a dust bowl they call a playground. Camara, who once coached the women’s Whitecaps team and is a certified FIFA coach, has soccer to thank for helping him escape poverty.

Spending up to $1,600 on signs alerting motorists to wildlife is too much, Councillor Grant Ward commented on Sept. 17. Mayor Jack Froese agreed, but a majority of council approved the signs for Willoughby where development is pushing wildlife out of its habitat. Many animals end up being killed or maimed when they are hit by moving vehicles. Disturbed by their fate, Willoughby resident Dr. Patricia Tallman began a campaign to persuade the Township to erect the signs. These will tar-
get Willoughby first because that is where most of Langley’s development is taking place. Council also authorized staff to review an excavation protocol, authored by Tallman, with the Urban Development Institute. The protocol supports a ban on excavation during nesting or dening season if terrestrial wildlife is observed. This measure alone, Tallman said, would eliminate the current discriminatory practice of ignoring terrestrial wildlife and contribute towards reducing juvenile road kill. The protocol encourages ‘wildlife awareness’ alerts to excavation crews, and building containment fences to prevent
wildlife from escaping onto roadways. As well, when a pond is to be drained, pond species should be salvaged and relocated. Without naming Tallman, Ward said that the Township “is looking after one particular person who has come to this council. We have gone down this road way too long.” Concerned about the proliferation of signs, Ward commented that “wildlife get caught under the wheels of cars . . . we should not be spending this type of money.” Councillor David Davis said that the wildlife signs “warn us to slow down and pay attention.”

Murrayville neighbours call for leveling of water costs Natasha JoNes Times Reporter
An inexpensive reducer placed in a water pipe will ensure that all eight homes in a Murrayville cul de sac will pay equally for water consumption. In July, Mark Fettback, who lives in one of the eight high-end homes in the 5200 block of 219 A Street, asked council to remedy an inequity that left his and six other houses with significantly higher consumption
costs that the one neighbour’s house. Fettback explained that when someone in his house, or any of the other six in the cul de sac, runs a bath with 80 gallons of water, it will fill faster than the eighth home. What sets Fettback’s house and the six others part is the size of the water pipe running from the street to their houses. The standard is a one inch pipe. Theirs is a 1.25 inch pipe, while a one inch pipe was in place when the eighth
house was built. Apart from the cost, the only difference the pipe diameter makes, Fettback explained to Township council, is that the wider pipe fills up the tub faster. Fettback’s house, and the six other houses with the larger diameter water pipe, pay about $1,800 a year for water. These seven houses are all on water metres. The eighth house, which Fettback said is the largest, pays $400 a year. It does not have a water meter.
“We just want to be equal with Murrayville,” he said, adding that the seven houses in the cul de sac are among only 43 in the Township that have water meters. He offered a solution: a $2.50 reducer for each of the seven houses. In September, council agreed that the seven houses will be offered water at the same rate as the eight house “if and only if the dwellings install a flow restrictor that limits the intake flow to that of a normal one inch pipe.”
Crime and violence a way of life from PAGE 11
“I played professional soccer in Europe and became a Hungarian citizen,” he said. That country is also helping him ensure equipment like soccer balls get back to his home country. Sports equipment and school supplies could give these children the help they need to change there situation. Because so many are desperate they have turned to crime and violence, making it a very dangerous country to go to. “Even though I am from there I had to walk around with military and I could never sleep in the same place twice or I would be robbed and killed,” he said. “I bought a bag of rice and the village
ate their first hot meal in days.” When he was there, Camara met with the director of police to organize the arrival of the container he will fill and have shipped there. “NGOs can’t work in Guinea because it is so dangerous,” he said. To ensure his safety and the safety of the container, he is having a film crew and local media come document the container’s arrival. It won’t be without its risks of being robbed and Camara’s risk to personal safety. “But we have to try,” he said. The container will be full of pens, binders, books, shoes, Tshirts, shorts, paper, chalk and more. While he was there he made a movie which he has posted on YouTube, showing the plight of these young people.

Guinea-Conakry has a plethora of natural resources like gold and petroleum but the people of Guinea don’t benefit because of rampant corruption. No one will invest in this country. Guinea’s reputation for corruption has chocked economic growth, leaving people to live in the depths of poverty, turning to drug trafficking and crime as their only existence, he said. Guinea ranks 173 out of 180 countries, tied near the bottom with Chad and Sudan. Camara has asked and met with the Langley Board of Education to take on the challenge of assisting these children to be successful academically and athletically. Camara is looking to raise $4,500 which is the cost to ship a container of materials to the port of Conakry.

Road pricing, tax cuts may be the transportation answer
Jeff Nagel Black Press
Expect insurmountable public opposition to a strategy of simply slapping tolls on existing bridges to fund TransLink. But charging every driver a lower and more broadly based charge on each kilometre travelled might work in Metro Vancouver — especially if it’s offset by a cut in some existing taxes. That was some of the advice Metro Vancouver leaders heard Thursday from a panel of international experts at a forum on regional tolling organized by Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts. A road pricing system could include free home zones for motorists, who wouldn’t pay per kilometre charges until they cross a zone boundary into a different city. Someone in Surrey could drive within Surrey “all day long” but only pay if they cross a zone boundary into New Westminster, suggested Jack Opiola, a Virginia-based road tolling and transport policy consultant. “When I leave my home zone and travel into somebody else’s I know I pay a fee,” he said. “That way everybody pays their fair share.” Ideally, panelists said, road pricing could substitute for much of the existing gas tax. Revenues are in decline anyway. It may also be possible to even reduce property tax a bit. “It’s going to be a tough sell to say we’re going to keep taxing you on your gas
and ask you to pay a permile charge,” said Edward Regan, a transportation and tolling policy authority from Connecticut. “But if it’s one instead of the other that’s certainly much more viable.” The push by mayors towards road-use charges here springs from both TransLink’s troubled quest for sustainable funding and a growing sense among civic leaders that tolling just a couple of bridges is unfair and may inefficiently distort traffic patterns. Most other jurisdictions are grappling with some of the same challenges as TransLInk, particularly a gas tax that raises less money for transit each year as vehicles get more efficient and more electric cars hit the road. Panelists said several U.S. jurisdictions — from Washington’s Puget Sound to Los Angeles — are contemplating a shift to forms of road pricing, typically by charging a a few cents per mile travelled. Regan said it’s also wise to find ways to provide benefits to drivers, rather than merely a high-tech method to take their money. He said GPS-based systems to charge road usage fees can also be used to advise drivers on less-congested alternate routes, or perhaps guide them to a free parking spot and automatically pay for it. In Dallas-Fort Worth, he said, tolls on planned new express lanes will vary by route and change according to congestion levels, in an effort to ensure those lanes
are free flowing. Drivers will get a toll rebate if traffic fails to flow at a guaranteed minimum speed. Even with the best ideas in play, panelists warned the policy road to toll systems is littered with failed efforts, including New York City’s aborted attempt to introduce a London-style congestion charge. Opialo said a potential move to a road usage charge being studied in Washington State would also charge B.C. drivers who nip across the border to buy gas — if the measure is enacted. Puget Sound estimates it could rake in $34 billion over 20 years through road usage fees it aims to put on every route in the region, said Mark Hallenback, director of the Washington State Transportation Centre. “The numbers are enormous,” he said. “The problem is that comes from someone. It’s not magic money. It comes from a public which is not at all convinced that they should be giving that to you.” Hallenback also suggested significantly cutting back TransLink’s 17-cent-alitre gas tax, which raises about $330 million a year, if road pricing was imposed here, adding fewer drivers would cross the border to fill up. “All those people no longer going over to Blaine, they’re buying it with the Canadian taxes on it. You might not even lose that much money.” Other methods of easing the pain to motorists could include a $5 maximum cap

on tolls paid in a day, or a certain number of free kilometres a day before tolls apply, the forum heard. The real question, Hallenback said, is whether the scheme can generate net new money for transit expansion, how much more local residents can afford to pay and whether they support the vision for an improved system. Other challenges include assuring drivers a GPS-based system won’t precisely track their cars’ movements. Road pricing has benefits other tax methods — like property tax — can’t deliver, the forum heard. It puts a direct price on putting a key in an ignition and driving away, which too many motorists view as essentially free, aside from gas. “You level the playing field, making transit more competitive with driving,” Regan said. By deterring some car trips, normally gridlocked bridges and other routes can also become free flowing, especially if rates vary by time of day to encourage more people to travel at offpeak hours. “You’re never going to get people to shift away from using their car to the train using property tax,” Regan added. Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts said Metro leaders need to continue to explore road pricing options. “It reinforces that the road map in front of us currently is not sustainable,” she said. “We need to be looking at something else.”

Transportation top of mind at town hall
Miranda Gathercole Times Reporter
Transportation issues are of high priority among City of Langley residents. This was made clear on Saturday morning at the Langley City town hall meeting, when several questions on this topic were asked of representatives Mayor Peter Fassbender, MLA Mary Polak, MP Mark Warawa and Langley Board of Education chair Wendy Johnson. The town hall is part of a series of public meetings that allow residents to raise concerns from their community to their government representatives. Questions submitted via Twitter are accepted as well. Should the Interurban line resurface in Langley? Fassbender doesn’t think so. The tracks do not run where people live, he said. “It doesn’t make sense.” Instead, people need to change their perceptions about busses and understand that bringing the SkyTrain or Interurban to Langley alone will not be enough. An entire network of transportation systems is needed, he said. Part of the transportation problem is solving inefficiencies within TransLink. “It’s a long term issue,” Polak said. “Everyone I think is aware that there are huge challenges with the government’s current model of TransLink. To make a change like that is a pretty significant undertaking,” she said. The first short term steps are giving the Mayor’s Council greater responsibility in making the transit plans for Metro Vancouver and allowing them to choose the type of funding tools used to fund services, she said. “The politics around the Mayor’s
Council table drives me crazy sometimes,” Fassbender added. “We’ve been giving (funding) for a long time South of the Fraser. It’s our turn to start to see transportation needs that we have for now and in the future. And I’m going to hold my colleagues to account.” Some suggest that creating a road pricing strategy could help make up for financial shortfalls. Fassbender believes this is the right way to go. User pay will be a better solution for the long term than property taxes, he said, however “there’s no perfect system.” Other topics raised by residents included the drug culture in Langley City and affordable housing. Although the City of Langley per capita has the highest amount of low income housing in all of Metro Vancouver, many are “becoming ghettos in our community,” Fassbender admitted. Drug culture is embedded in social issues and legalizing certain narcotics such as marijuana Miranda GATHERCOLE/Langley Times will not take away gangs, he Langley MP Mark Warawa anwers a question from an audience member at the Langley said, adding that not one coun- City town hall meeting on Saturday. cil member would vote for its A key step for prevention is through of the drug culture for the long haul.” decriminalization.

Many new tourism jobs expected
For some, a dream job would be a vacation planner — for themselves. Vacationing in B.C. can take so many forms that it would indeed be a full-time job. The tourism and hospitality industry is an extremely diverse industry with over 400 different occupations. These include occupations that lead to longer-term careers, as well as those that fit well for those seeking part-time work, like students or older workers who are not yet ready to retire. British Columbia’s tourism industry will be a leader in provincial job growth, as businesses look to fill 101,000 new job openings by 2020, according to a study of labour demand and supply by go2, the B.C. tourism industry’s human resource association. The Tourism Labour Market Strategy, released in the spring of 2012 by go2, sets out the plan to recruit, retain and train the workers needed to keep pace with the growth projected for the industry. Nearly half of the 101,000 openings will be new jobs created by the tourism industry across the province, adding 44,220 more jobs to the provincial workforce by 2020. The other approximately 57,000 openings are due to replacements (i.e. retirements). “The labour strategy co-ordinated by go2 is a key pillar of industry growth in the province. Without it, we simply wouldn’t have the skilled workers in place to deliver the visitor experience throughout BC,” says Lana Denoni, chair of TIABC, the Tourism Industry Association of British Columbia. British Columbia’s location, bordered by the Rocky Mountains on the east and the Pacific Ocean on the west, makes it unique within Canada. Its mountain
Lana Denoni is chair of the Tourism Industry Association of B.C. and coastal scenery, opportunities for summer sailing, winter skiing, and other activities such as fishing or sightseeing in coastal or inland waters or experiencing vibrant cities all help make B.C. a world-class destination. Tourism helps to diversify the economy and also brings new community services to permanent residents. B.C.’s tourism and hospitality industry is now the single largest “primary resource industry” in the province, generating an annual real GDP of more than $13.4 billion in 2010, ahead of forestry, mining, oil and gas extraction, and agriculture. Overall, between 2004 and 2010, industry revenues grew by a total of 25.5 per cent, representing an average annual
growth rate of 4.2 per cent. The provincial government’s Gaining the Edge: A Five-year Strategy for Tourism in British Columbia targets revenue growth of five per cent a year that will top $18 billion in tourism spending by 2016. The fastest growing sectors for tourism job growth over the next decade are expected to be recreation and entertainment and travel services. There are an estimated 17,943 tourism-related businesses across the province, employing about 260,000 workers, or 10.8 per cent of B.C.’s total labour force of 2.4 million people. More than 80 per cent of tourism’s new job openings are projected to come in food and beverage services (43,410 openings), recreation and entertainment (20,530 openings) and the accommodation sector (18,920 openings). “After several years of slow labour growth, the tourism industry is poised to expand,” said Arlene Keis, chief executive officer of go2. “Labour shortages are already being felt in places like Northern B.C., the Thompson Okanagan and in the Rockies regions. By 2016, the crunch will be more acute throughout the province. “The tourism industry often provides people with their important first job and sets them on their career path,” said Keis. “Tourism is also the largest employer of youth, with one in four British Columbians under the age of 24 working in the industry. “This anticipated growth in tourism reinforces the need to plan carefully and ensure that there are enough workers with the right skills in the right communities to meet the tourism industry’s future labour needs,” said Keis.
Tourism gains importance Tourism is an increasing contributor to the Langley economy. Langley is home to a number of hotels, which get constant use by visitors to the area. The most recent large hotel to open is the Sandman Signature Hotel and Suites, on the south side of Highway 1 at 200 Street. It complements the existing Sandman Inn on the north side of the freeway, just east of 200 Street. Several of the hotels in that area are popular destinations for visitors to the nearby Langley Events Centre, which is rapidly becoming a key tourist attraction in Langley. It hosts many provincial and national sports events, including the Continental Cup of Curling last January, which was televised nationally by TSN. Another major draw to Langley is the equestrian industry. One of the largest attractions is the Thunderbird Equestrian Centre on 72 Avenue at 248 Street, which hosts several major horse shows each year. There are numerolus smaller equestrian centres in Langley as well. Agri-tourism has become a larger industry in recent years as well, with one of the most popular attractions being Langley’s many estate wineries. Tourism Langley (www.tourismlangley.ca), located at the Events Centre, has a number of packages for tourists who are visiting Langley. Tourism-related jobs have been on the upswing in this community, and that trend is expected to continue.

New house, new issues
A good home inspector will be able to root out any deficiencies hiding in your new home.

Design from the ground up Building a custom home takes a lot more than just choosing the perfect location. By Kerry Vital
Natural gas can also heat your hot tub or pool, which is especially important when it’s cool outside. The water will be heated consistently and quickly, so your relaxation can begin almost immediately. Canada is the world’s third largest producer of natural gas, so it is an abundant source of energy, as well as being extremely popular. Natural gas meets 30 per cent of Canada’s energy needs, according to FortisBC. It is also a cleaner type of energy, emitting almost 30 per cent less carbon dioxide than oil. Another fantastic benefit to natural gas service
Building a custom home can be a wonderful experience, but it can also be not for the faint of heart. If you’re looking into building a brand-new home that is custom designed from the ground up, the first thing you need to do is find a reputable builder who has plenty of experience. “Don’t go for the cheapest or the one who just got started,” says Ivan Krpan of Dakota Holdings Custom Home Builders. “References are essential. Many people have had bad experiences, so it’s really important to choose the right builder.” When you’re hiring a builder, it’s very important to be comfortable with him or her, because you will have a lot of contact in the next several months. Krpan says it generally takes about 10 months from start to finish, so if you’re not happy that time will be crawling by and you will be adding extra stress to your life on top of the usual emotions that come with any renovation. “The builder must be willing

The comfortable choice: natural gas Natural gas has become a popular choice in Canada, for a variety of reasons. By Kerry Vital Natural gas is rapidly becoming a popular way of powering your home, for a large variety of reasons. One of the benefits of natural gas according to FortisBC is its convenience factor. Natural gas is available at the push of a button, so you don’t need to worry about running out of fuel for your barbecue, or having to wait for your fireplace or
outdoor firepit to get hot. It is easy to find stylish and functional appliances that use natural gas, so homeowners never have to sacrifice their sense of style. Imagine coming home from a long day at work and being able to sit in front of your natural gas-fuelled fireplace with a glass of wine, or toss together a gourmet meal for a dinner party with your gas cooktop or oven. That dream is easily made possible with a natural gas system. One of the great things about a natural gas cooktop and oven is its ability to cook food evenly. You will no longer have to worry about burning one side of the pan while the other is undercooked.
Partial proceeds of all KitchenAid appliances sold at Coast in October will be donated to “Cook For The Cure”.

A natural gas system has many benefits for homeowners, from cost to convenience “ from page.1 is the value it adds to your home. Because of its popularity and other benefits, it can contribute to a better resale value for your home. While you’re living in your home, having natural gas services make it easier to convert other appliances to natural gas when your budget permits. Homeowners with natural gas service will be interested in the rebates that are available through FortisBC in a variety of categories. The first is for space and water heating. You can receive a $1,000 rebate for swapping your oil or propane heating system to natural gas and installing a new ENERGY STAR™-rated high-efficiency heating system. Replacing your old water heater with a qualifying natural gas ENERGY STAR™ model will also make you eligible for a rebate of up to $500. “Heating water can consume 20 to 25 per cent of a home’s total energy use,” says Beth Ringdahl, program manager, energy efficiency and conservation for FortisBC. “So when it comes to looking at natural gas-powered water heaters, it makes sense to get the most efficient model you can find. Some of the new technologies make it possible to get a tank-less model, which is a bonus for smaller spaces.” In the appliances category, homeowners who buy a qualified ENERGY STAR™ washing machine will receive a $75 rebate if they purchase the new machine by Dec. 31. ENERGY STAR™ washing machines use 35 to 50 per cent less water, just as one of their benefits. Keeping warm with an EnerChoice fireplace will net you a $300 rebate if you purchase it by May 31, 2013. EnerChoice fireplaces must have a minimum of 62.4 per cent efficiency rating for a fireplace, 61 per cent for an insert and 66 per
cent for a free-standing stove. Not having to keep a supply of firewood on hand is just one more great thing about having a natural gas fireplace. Those in low-income households are able to take advantage of the Energy Conservation Assistance Program, which offers a free home energy evaluation, free installation of energy saving products and personalized advice. If you are a FortisBC natural gas customer, a BC Hydro customer and live in a low-income household, you can apply on the FortisBC website. “FortisBC offers a number of energy-efficiency incentives that help homeowners get the most out of their natural gas appliances and space heating,” says Ringdahl. “For example, FortisBC is a partner in the LiveSmart BC program for whole home retrofits. This provides homeowners energy audits that point out easy ways to make energy-efficient improvements and rebates to save on energy costs.” However, rebates are not the only way homeowners save with a natural gas system. FortisBC states that natural gas heating equipment such as furnaces are 98 per cent efficient, so heating costs are lower than with other types of systems, such as oil or propane. A natural gas water heater heats water more efficiently than other methods, and can dramatically bring down your heating costs. For more information about natural gas services, check out FortisBC’s website at www. fortisbc.com.

Don’t settle for subpar “ from page.1 of Mike Holmes going into homes after they have been given the thumbs-up by incompetent home inspectors and that is what gives us nightmares. What you may not be aware of is that British Columbia is the only province in Canada where it is mandatory for home inspectors to be licensed. What you are looking for is an inspector who has extensive experience in the building trade, who has completed the required specific education to qualify as a home inspector and is a member in good standing of industry professional associations such as The Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association, British Columbia Institute of Property Inspectors, Applied Science Technologists and Technicians of British Columbia (ASTTBC), and for good measure, a member in good standing of the Better Business Bureau of B.C. Buying a home is the biggest financial commitment most of us will make in our lifetime so there is no such thing as overkill when it comes to checking out qualifications. What Mike Holmes is fighting for is already in place in our beloved province and has been since 2009. The ASTTBC lists several questions that you should ask when hiring an inspector, including how long he or she has been in business as an inspector, if the company has references, how long it will take to complete the inspection and what he or she charges. If there is a problem with any of the above questions or the inspector is reluctant to comply with your request, walk away. There is too much at stake to take any chances and reluctance to answer your questions is a red flag that shortcuts will be taken. Mandatory licensing in B.C. has made a dif-

ference in the market place, according to home inspector Glenn Duxbury. “It was like the wild west out there, just as it is in many other provinces to this day. Anybody with a ladder, a flashlight and a business card could go out there and say they are a home inspector with no training, no accountability,” he says. “When I started about 10 years ago, even before mandatory licensing, I followed the advice of a seasoned inspector and went to BCIT which at the time was the only institute offering a course in home inspection and after graduating I worked for a respected company before going out on my own.” Now things are much more tightly controlled. Along with mandatory licensing, insurance must be in good standing and should a homeowner buy a home after receiving a flawed inspection, the insurance will cover any remedial work.
Home inspector Glenn Duxbury says that the mandatory licensing for home inspectors in B.C. has gone a long way towards preventing disreputable inspections. It is important to check out foundations, attics and plumbing when purchasing a home. Martin Knowles photos

Keeping the fires burning during the cold season ance gas fireplaces that can sit on combustible floors, not to be confused with gas inserts that have to be totally surrounded by non-combustible material,” says Fougette. “This is an example of why it is so important to advise us about which application you are planning.” No matter what the style of your home there is a design that would work beautifully but what if you what you are looking for is not available? “We do a lot of custom fireplaces both for commercial applications and homes,” says Fougette. “There is pretty well no limit to what we can design from multi-sided fireplaces to overheight installations. All shapes and sizes, pretty well whatever you can dream, it can be made for you.”
By Maggie Calloway There is nothing as comforting after a day in the trenches as a fire. There is probably some primitive part of our brain that equates the warmth of a fire with safety and comfort. Whatever your personal choice or circumstances, there have never been such a variety of fireplaces available. Even if you live in a condominium, where it would be frowned upon if you started opening the walls to accommodate a chimney, there is now a great solution. Ethanol burning fireplaces, which give off no heat but have a real flame look, don’t require venting or gas lines and are a great choice for condos and give real ambiance to your living space. “Electric fireplaces have come a long way over the last few years,” says Dale Fougette of Fireplaces Unlimited. “They used to be a bit stiff and unrealistic but now they are sometimes mistaken for a gas fireplace in the showroom. You can now get an electric fireplace with a long linear look instead of the square box with the traditional log and you can just plug it in. There are also options; you can heat a condo or a basement suite when hard-wired to a higher voltage. Another advantage of an electric fireplace is they don’t have to be installed on a special surface, they are all pretty well zero clearances, they can be framed with wood and you can drywall right up to them. They are very safe.” Gas fireplaces are becoming standard in most townhouses and condos and there is something to be said for just having to flick a switch instead of lighting a fire from scratch. “There are also a lot of zero clear-

Technology making its mark on wallpaper with custom designs By Maggie Calloway If wallpaper has always been an afterthought in your design plans you may be surprised to learn there is actually a serious wallpaper design society based in England. This is not someone’s eccentric aunt with a houseful of wallpaper samples. Founded in 1986, the Wallpaper History Society was established to promote an awareness and understanding of historic and contemporary wallcoverings. Their website states “Our scope is broad and encompasses not only the history of wallpapers but also topics relating to other types of wallcoverings, the subject of interior decoration as a whole and the increasing role which digital technology plays in design.” William Morris, a wallpaper and textile designer who is still a huge influence on style in this century, said, “Whatever you have in your rooms, think first of the walls for they are that which makes your house and home, and if you do not make some sacrifices in their favour you will find your chambers have a kind of makeshift, lodging-house look about them.” Morris would heartily approve and be intrigued by a wonderful Canadian company called Rollout. Headed by Anita
Modha, with studios in Vancouver and Toronto, Rollout has married design with technology since 2005 which allows them to push the boundaries of what is possible in the world of wall design. “In essence what we do is design custom wallpapers and digitally print them by the square foot,” says Modha. “We get our inspiration from community-based artists, photographers and designers, and the wall is our canvas. ... Each project is unique and is integral to the design of your home,” says Modha. Technology has thrown the world of design wide open. Imagine a wall in your media room with a custom design from a favourite movie! All bets are off today regarding what’s in or out. Your home is a reflection of you and your family and there have never been more choices to fully express who you are today.
There are many design options for wallpaper these days, from stylized skulls to a map of Paris and everything in between. Submitted photos

Building a secondary suite a good mortgage helper By Kerry Vital The Lower Mainland is widely recognized as one of the most expensive places to live in North America. With that in mind, many homeowners are choosing to build a secondary legal suite in their house to rent out and bring in a bit of extra money. However, it can be confusing when trying to sort out what is required, what is a nice extra and the best way to go about building your new suite. Before you start such a renovation, it’s best to look into the regulations in your city. “The best resource for secondary suite regulations can be found online on your municipal website,” says Steve Kemp of Kemp Construction Management Ltd. “There are many regulations for secondary suites such as minimum egress for bedroom windows, electrical panel access, fire separation, stand-alone heating systems, (and) designated garden area, plus many more.” The thought can be overwhelming, but Kemp has some suggestions for things to think about before you start. “Can you finance the project? Are you ready to share your home?” he asks. “Is the access to your space shared or private? Is there enough parking for one or two additional vehicles?” He also says homeowners should think about whether they want to live in their home while it is under renovation, or whether they should seek alternate accommodation. Renovations aren’t quiet and they aren’t always quick. “If you are doing the full redevelopment of the basement including a new foundation, I would allow six months for the project,” says Kemp. “Minor alterations may only take a few weeks.” He notes that the more things you add to a project, the longer it will take. “For example, a new sewer, water and drainage connections add two weeks. Granite countertops versus laminate could add one to two weeks,” he says. “Sometimes owners want to upgrade the main living area at the same time, which can add additional time to the project.” As anyone who has ever rented a basement or secondary suite can attest to, there are certain things that renters will be looking for when searching for a place to live.
“There is a high demand for good-quality rental suites in Vancouver,” says Kemp. “The highest demand is for two-bedroom and two-bathroom units with eight-foot ceilings and no evidence of basement mildew. Generally these suites range in size from 700 to 1,000-plus square feet.” Having your own space is also key. It can be uncomfortable to run into your landlord on your way out the door in the morning, which is why a basement suite with its own entrance is highly sought-after. “Add quality finishes and privacy in order to attract a tenant that is looking for longerterm accommodations,” says Kemp. “Know your target market and try to understand what type of (home) they need and what they are able to afford.” When it comes to how much you will be able to get for your new secondary suite, Kemp says it depends on a few factors. “The main determinants of rental income are the quality of finish, privacy, full-height ceilings, (is it) dry and comfortable, and proximity to amenities, work and parking,” he says. It is best to check rental listings for an idea of what you could charge. As with every renovation, hiring a professional is always the best way to go. “Do your research,” Kemp says. “Print out the regulations for secondary suites and make sure you understand the content. Ensure you have adequate funds, find experienced professionals to help you, (and) allow adequate time for the project.” When you’re considering building a secondary suite in your home, the first thing you need to do is check out the regulations for your city.

My House Design/Build renovates old-style bungalow By Maggie Calloway The story of a family firmly rooted in a neighbourhood with children happy in school and extended family nearby that opts to renovate a home which is tired and no longer works as the family grows and needs more space is a familar one nowadays. With home prices still rising, homeowners are weighing the cost of buying a new home and relocating against the cost of a renovation and ending up with exactly what you want. More frequently, renovating is winning the coin toss. This was the case with this renovation. The father of the family grew up in the area, has many family members living close by, and wanted his own family to experience the love and security of grandparents, aunts and uncles and cousins being a part of everyday life. Linda Jones, an interior designer working with the My House Design/Build Team, is very pleased with how this amazing transformation works for the family. “The whole main floor which was originally the kitchen, dining room and living room are now one great room,” says Jones. “Our clients are all about family and the configuration of the original house didn’t allow them to live as they really wanted to. Major Sunday dinners with extended family are now possible with everyone together comfortably in this new space.” The clients trusted the renovation team which allowed them to hand over creative control of the project. This is a dream situation for any team and they made sure the family received what they needed in spades. “It was a real pleasure working with the family,” says Jones. “Opening up the whole main floor required major engineering to replace the removed walls but the end result was

worth it. The main floor now consists of three small bedrooms, a family bathroom and an ensuite bathroom as well as the great room.” The house is a 1,300-square-foot bungalow with no second story but with a full walk-out basement. “This whole space was very carefully planned. When you design a great room, which by design has to fulfill many roles, every detail is important,” says Jones. “For instance, the kitchen is MAKE totally EVERY exposedROOM to the living room but by placing the island carefully with a raised breakfast bar it shields the working area from the living space.

A few little changes can make a difference By Kerry Vital Winter seems to be rapidly approaching, and with it comes darkness, bad weather and a feeling of cabin fever. Perhaps putting some new decor into that cabin will drive away some of those feelings. A new colour palette might be a good place to start. “It’s nice to have something vivid and fun,” says Sarah Gallop, principal designer at Sarah Gallop Design Inc. “It really sets the tone for the space.” Colours such as bright orange, magenta and lime green are especially popular as accents, Gallop says. She often has people request a feature wall in a saturated colour, some bright pillows or other textiles, or even a new piece of furniture in a tropical hue. These accents go well with the new neutrals
that are a recent trend. While many shake their heads at “apartment beige”, that colour is a classic for a reason and still features heavily in many homes. However, warm and cool greys are still requested, though Gallop sees them as being on their way out. “People like a timeless, classic look,” she says. “You spend a lot of money to decorate your house, and it doesn’t always make sense to go for a new look every time.” Wallpaper has also become more popular recently and Gallop expects this to continue next year as well. “People have a bad association with it,” she says. “But it gives such a glamour that paint doesn’t have.” Because it doesn’t have to be permanent, Gallop says wallpaper is an easy way to keep up with interior decor trends. “Some of the new wallpapers are gorgeous,” she says, adding that you are no longer relegated to musty flowers and faux finishes that were popular in the 1980s and 1990s. Even the popular style of furniture has been changing recently, Gallop says. “More tailored looks are back,” she says. “The overstuffed furniture is out; it’s quite bulky and heavy-looking.” A move towards indoor-outdoor living has been coming on strong this year, and Gallop expects that to continue into the new year. Sarah Gallop says adding a vivid colour to a room freshens it up and sets the tone for the space, no matter which room it is. Submitted photos
“It’s really about extending the living space out,” she says, adding that the ability to do so depends on the layout of the home and yard, but “it’s usually achievable.” Building an outdoor kitchen or patio for entertaining is one of many things homeowners can do to maximize their indoor-outdoor space. When you’re thinking of doing some updates, it’s always best to take a look at the things you already love about a space. Working out a budget for what you can afford and want to change is the best place to start. Overextending yourself is never a good plan. “You don’t want to be a slave to your house,” Gallop says.
A busy corner, left, has been transformed into a cozy breakfast nook, above. The bright colour and plenty of storage space gives a new feel to an older space. Meanwhile, wallpaper is back and nothing like the dated patterns many grew up with, below. Submitted photos

Finding a level of trust is extremely important when choosing a home builder “ from page.1
to spend time with them,” says Krpan. “They must be willing to assist (the homeowners) with colours, design and other plans.” Once you’ve chosen a builder, you need to find the land you want to build on and know the regulations that are in place for the type of home you can construct. “How a property is situated will (determine) what you can put on it,” says Krpan. Once you’ve chosen where you want to build and purchased the parcel of land, it’s time to start looking at what you want to include in your new home, whether it’s a large kitchen perfect for entertaining or several bedrooms to fit your growing family. “A good builder will help you look at what you should and shouldn’t do (in a home) as well as discuss your likes and dislikes,” says Krpan. This is the perfect time to talk about your dream master suite or what you love about a friend or family member’s house. Those granite countertops and heated tile floors are important parts of the design puzzle, and your builder needs to know that you want them included. “In most cases you will be working with a designer who works with the builder,” say Krpan. They will collaborate with you to lay out everything you want for your perfect home. Once you have finalized your design and everyone is on the same page, it’s time to discuss how much it will cost and draw up a contract. “It’s best to enlighten people about what the process is,” says Krpan. “Everything has a price tag attached.” The contract you sign should include the square footage of the home, a total breakdown of the costs you will incur including the price per square foot and the quality of finishings that will be in the home. “It should also include a payment schedule,” Krpan says. “For example, I ask for 25 per cent to start. Then, another 25 per cent once the roof, doors and windows go on. The next 40 per cent would be required when the heating, air conditioning and electrical go in and drywall goes up. The final 10 per cent would be due once everything is finished and a final inspection is done.” However, Krpan warns that even though you may have signed a contract stating how much you will be paying for your new home, if you come up with some new ideas mid-way through, there might be some extra costs. “An example would be a high-end chandelier,” he says, adding that the homeowner would have to pay for that on top of the agreed-upon cost. “You don’t want any misunderstandings between the builder and the customer,” Krpan says. “That’s why there needs to be a good contract in place. Having a contract keeps everyone honest and everyone understands the cost.” You should also be given a construction specifications sheet when completing a contract. That sheet (Krpan’s are usually four or five pages long) will list the construction materials the builder will use. “I list the important things,” says Krpan. “I’m not going to list the brand of concrete used or anything, but I will list things like the cultured stone for the front or the type of windows, for example. It’s important to protect both the builder and the customer.” Being realistic about what you can afford is very important. You may have fallen in love with that huge granite soaker tub or opulent formal dining room you saw in a home decor magazine, but if it’s not feasible on your budget it may need to be put aside for the time being. Your home is more than a place to rest your head. You should feel happy and comfortable in your new place, and knowing that this house was built exactly how you wanted it to be will go a long way towards making that possible.
Building a custom home can be a large undertaking, so it is important to find a builder you trust and are able to work with. Whether you want a large kitchen, glittery chandeliers or an opulent master bedroom, your options for the design of your new home can be limited only by your imagination and your budget.

Daniel Wesley performs this weekend at a concert to raise funds for an all-abilities playground in White Rock Tracy Holmes Black Press
Dan FERGUSON/Black Press
Top: Daniel Wesley performs at an undated concert; above: Wesley visits with White Rock firefighters. The Langleyraised musician will be performing at the firefighters’ fundraising dance Oct. 27 at Star of the Sea Hall.
With the help of a Langley rocker, White Rock firefighters are turning up the volume on their quest to raise money for an all-abilities playground on White Rock’s waterfront. White Rock-born reggae-rocker Daniel Wesley — who spent the first few years of his childhood in the seaside city before moving to Langley — is headlining a dance at the Star of the Sea Hall on Oct. 27 for the cause. “I get asked to do a lot of different charitable events. Normally, I have to turn them down,” Wesley said. “This one seemed like a really good thing to be a part of.” Firefighter Evan Bird spearheaded the dance idea with colleague Bira Bhindra. It’s the latest in efforts to raise money for the park, which has also been supported by proceeds of recent princess parties hosted by Bird’s mother, Myra Merkal – including one held in August that raised $12,000. Bird set his sights on an all-abilities park after the August 2010 loss of the playground in Semiahmoo Park. He used to take his daughters to play there, and said the value such a place has in a community is immeasurable. “You realize once something’s gone, what you’re missing out on,” Bird said.
“This is absolutely ludicrous that we don’t have a park on the beach. “What better place to have a social gathering spot?” While there are still many details to work out, including how much money is needed and exactly where the park will be located — he’s hoping for a site on East Beach — Bird said he is determined to forge ahead. “Everybody” he talks to about the idea is supportive, he added. Signing Wesley to perform at the Halloween Howl only added to the thrill of the effort. Wesley, whose brother Micah Rossnagel is a Langley firefighter, told Black Press that his connection to the community dates back 30 years, to the day he was born. All three of his grandparents live in White Rock, and he spent many a day on the city’s waterfront, even after his family moved to Langley. “I grew up on that beach,” the nowVancouver resident said. “There should be access for everybody.” He described the request to play on Oct. 27 as “a really nice phone call to get.” For those planning to attend the dance, Wesley said his goal is “just to entertain and be entertained.” The evening is to also feature Six Gun Romeo. Tickets, $30, can be purchased at the firehall (15315 Pacific Ave.) or online at www.wrff.eventbrite.ca For more information, call 604-531-6045.

Whether painting a picture with a pen or with a brush, for many artists it’s only natural to turn to the great outdoors for inspiration. On Sunday, Oct. 28 from 1-3 p.m., local artists — painters, sketchers, writers, photographers and the like — are invited to do just that, by joining others in the wooded area of North Langley referred to as McLellan Forest Park. This afternoon of art and action in Glen Valley aims “to raise awareness about a spectacular 25 acre forest just east of Fort Langley.” The five forested lots have been put up for sale by the Township of Langley. The group is concerned that not many people know about the beauty and ecological value of this biologically diverse and mature forest, and say there is little time to make Langley residents aware of what will be lost if the property is sold. The Township may be willing to sell it to a local society if the small group can raise $3 million in a short time. “Saving this forest ecosystem will provide a lasting legacy, not only to our children, but our children’s and perhaps countless generations,” states a release issued by the group. “Artists can play an important role in building public appreciation and awareness.” Participants are invited to bring their art supplies, writing pads and cameras and take a tour through the area. Hot tea and cookies will be provided. They will meet at the trail entrance on 257A Street just north of the intersection with 84 Avenue.
Twenty-five acres of forest in North Langley, which the Township plans to sell, will serve as inspiration for artists in a range of mediums this Sunday, Oct. 28, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Come to Attention
Attention, a collection of artwork by Shari Pratt, featuring pieces that combine paint and found objects, will be on display at the Fort Gallery, Oct. 24 to Nov. 12.
Langley Concert Band meets Monday nights from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at R.E. Mountain Secondary School For more info, check out langleycb. blogspot.com or email langley-
Artist Shari Pratt’s newest series “Attention” is an assemblage of mixed media figurative paintings which focuses on the relationship between the courageous portrayal of military men and what is concealed beneath the surface. An exhibit of Pratt’s work will be on display at the Fort Gallery from Oct. 24 to Nov. 12. Courage, for the men in Pratt’s pieces, meant going against their fear and anger to do that which was scary and tough to do, explained the artist. All of the military men on all sides around the globe showed courage as they fought for their countries. Pratt has chosen to place their portraits above several layers of found objects and warfare related memorabilia
which are then carefully excavated and detached to reveal the meaning and truth below the surface. With the artist having no war experience and no political message to convey, this series, while paying homage to Canada’s troops and to the precious lives that are lost during a conflict, is more focused on the profound courage that soldiers need to have and often need to portray. Gallery hours are noon to 5 p.m., Wednesday to Sunday, at 9048 Glover Rd. Fort Langley. The gallery will be open on Monday, Nov. 12 in honour of Remembrance Day. The public is invited to meet the artist during the opening reception, which will be held on Oct. 26, from 7 p.m to 9 p.m.
p.m. Join a small group of fiction writers and poets. Critiques, readings and guest speaker. Phone the library to register, 604-533-0339.

WORRIED YOUR NEW MORTGAGE COULD PUSH THE IMPORTANT THINGS OUT OF YOUR LIFE?
LCMS to host Italian vocal ensemble Cappella Artemisia Langley Community Music School (LCMS) is set to welcome the world-class Italian ensemble, Cappella Artemisia to the Rose Gellert Hall for the 2012/13-season opener on Saturday, Oct. 27 at 7:30 p.m. “We always attempt to present a cross representation of the literature from the wellknown masterworks to such rarities that will be heard at this concert,” said Elizabeth Bergmann, LCMS artistic director of concerts. “Through their work, Cappella Artemisia has unearthed wonderful masterpieces that should be heard. When I first heard a recording of this fantastic group and the exquisite music they are devoted to bringing to the stage, I knew that Cappella Artemisia would be something that our audience would absolutely enjoy hearing.” The 10-member ensemble consists of six vocalists, two cornetti and continuo. They present an intriguing program of recently unearthed vocal and instrumental music of the 16th and 17th centuries, much of it written behind convent walls where both composition and performance were officially forbidden. “It was an early example of the women’s movement, expressed through the power of music,” said Candace Smith, Cappella Artemisia founderdirector. “And of course, it also reveals these extraordinarily beautiful

Founded in Bologna, Italy, in 1991, Cappella Artemisia not only presents a feast of glorious and rarely heard music. With an informative and illuminating commentary, they also open a social and historical window onto the women’s movement of an earlier era. Cappella Artemisia takes its name from the painter, Arte-

overed head-to-toe in spaghetti sauce, my toddler was in dire need of a bath. Her infant sister, who somehow managed to get her dinner between her toes and down her diaper, was also in need of a good scrub. Into the bath they both went. Plunk. Plop. Splash, followed by an eruption of giggles. “Look at my big fat tummy, mommy,” said the proud toddler, her little protruding belly covered in bubbles. “I’m such a big girl, now.” Mirroring her older sister, my younger girl patted her stomach and let out a squeal of delight. I couldn’t help but admire her perfectly plump baby flesh, all soft, alabaster and dimply. It was a moment I wish I could freeze for all time. Both of my daughters so happy and healthy — naive to society’s unrealistic standards regarding body image. And completely oblivious to their own mother’s descent down a dark, dangerous road, not long ago. I was a child myself when I decided that I hated my body. While I was never actually overweight, my prepubescent body disgusted me. Every time I looked into a full-length mirror, I picked myself apart — a ritual I learned from my mom. She is a beautiful, intelligent woman who has never been at peace with her body, a trait passed down from her own mother. I lapped up every detail about the latest fad diet or workout routine she was on, and I did 150 sit-ups a night. I was nine. Looking back, I now recognize the signs of what was to come. But at the time, nobody noticed, myself

Sixty minutes wasn’t enough on both nights for the Langley Rivermen as they played overtime on back-to-back nights with mixed results. The Rivermen dropped a 5-4 decision to the Prince
George Spruce Kings on Friday before bouncing back with a 2-1 win over the Vernon Vipers. Both BCHL junior A hockey games were played at the Langley Events Centre. “You can’t really complain getting three out of four points,” said Rivermen coach
Bobby Henderson. “But I think Friday night, we should have won that one.” In that game, four times Langley had a one-goal lead but each time Prince George tied it up, including the last one with only four minutes left.

Spartans finish first
Scott STEWART/Trinity Western University
Trinity Western Spartans’ Alicia Tesan (#7) fends off a Fraser Valley Cascades defender during the Spartans 2-1 victory last week at Rogers Field. The Spartans enter the Canada West quarter-finals on Friday as the top seed.
In a battle for top spot in the Canada West regular season, it was the Trinity Western Spartans earning first place after a hard-fought 1-0 victory on Saturday against the host Victoria Vikes. “I’m proud of our players. Tessa Meyer probably had one of her best games as a Spartan and our back four were once again excellent as was our midfield and can’t say enough about (Kristen) Funk,” said Trinity Western women’s soccer head coach Graham Roxburgh. “Credit to UVIC. After we started well and possessed nicely they started to come on and were threatening. In the second half they came out with energy and we had to weather the storm. “It was a great game. Both teams had one or two chances and there weren’t a lot for either side and I’m pleased to come away with a win in a tough place in a very entertaining game of soccer,” added Roxburgh. Funk came up with a penalty kick save in the 59th minute and Natalie Boyd converted her penalty kick chance in the 72nd minute for the game’s only goal. It was the regular season
finale and the Spartans finished in first place with a record of 11-1-0. Victoria was relegated to second place at 9-2-1. It was Trinity Western’s fourth Canada West regular season title. The Spartans also won the previous night, 2-1 over the Fraser Valley Cascades. The game was played at TWU after the Cascades’ home field was unsuitable for play because of rain. In the game, Spartans rookie Krista Gommeringer scored twice, in the 61st and 64th minutes. Gommeringer finished the regular season with 13 goals and nine assists and her 22 points were one shy of tying former Spartan Carlee O’Brien’s single-season school record of 23 points. That was set in 2004. The Cascades scored once in injury time, but that was all that would elude Funk, who made five saves for the win. The Spartans host the eighthplace Manitoba Bisons (4-7-1) on Friday at Rogers Field at 5 p.m. If they win, Trinity Western will host the Canada West final four championships the following weekend.
••••• It all comes down to this weekend for the Trinity Western Spartans. The men’s soccer team plays a crucial home-and-home series with the UBC Thunderbirds to end the regular season. While both teams have qualified for next week’s playoffs, the T-Birds (11-0-1) lead the Canada West Pacific Division with 34 points while Trinity Western (9-1-2) is five points back with 29. That means to finish in top spot, the Spartans need all six points. The Spartans remained in the hunt for first place thanks to a pair of victories over the weekend, 1-0 over the Fraser Valley Cascades on Oct. 19 and then 2-1 over the Victoria Vikes on Oct. 20. Both games were played at TWU’s Rogers Field. Jarvis Ambaka broke a scoreless tie in the 74rd minute against the Cascades, scoring off a scrambled corner kick. Against the Vikes, Cameron Parkes and Ambaka scored 86 seconds apart early in the first half. “I thought we played exceptionally well,” said continued, PAGE 43

Spartans coach Pat Rohla. “We tried a different formation and the guys responded well and gave us a ‘Plan B’ knowing that we’re going into the playoffs. “Unfortunately we didn’t get the goose egg, but overall I’m really pleased for the guys. A lot of work went into tonight; it was a good response from last night when we didn’t have our best performance. Hats off to our guys for taking the first 20 minutes by storm and really playing well.” Victoria’s Cam Stokes scored in injury time to break Evan Lowther’s shutout bid. The Spartans host UBC on Friday at 7:30 p.m. before the teams play in Vancouver on Saturday.
