Karen people ring in the year 2752

Police trying to ID stab wound victim

Celebrations include traditional music, song and dance Miranda Gathercole Times Reporter

Langley’s Karen people welcomed the year 2752, with a community party on Saturday, Jan. 12. The Karen calendar began 739 years before the Gregorian (or Christian) calendar, when the Karen people arrived in Burma (Myanmar) from Mongolia, explained Saw Hermon Lay, a counsellor with the Karen community, who emceed the event at Christian Life Assembly on the weekend, along with Naw Candace Marvel. This year, the Karen new year fell on Jan. 12, but the date varies from year to year, Lay explained, depending on the lunar cycle. Wearing traditional clothing, the Karen people performed music featuring Karen instruments and demonstrated dances from their homeland. The event also featured food traditionally prepared for such celebrations, including curried meat dishes, vegetables and rice. Between 300 and 400 people from across the Lower Mainland filled the gymnasium at Christian Life Assembly for the standing room-only event. Most of the guests were members of the Karen community, but many local Canadians came to celebrate, as well. The Karen women wore elaborate traditional dresses with fancy high heels, while the men donned sweaters and wraps. The celebration opened with a horn-blowing and poem, followed by a welcoming speech from Mahn Aung Mya Thein and City of Langley Mayor Peter Fassbender. Other addresses were given throughout the afternoon by Saw Joe and Naw Knyaw Simon, and by Bob Gabriel from Immigrant Services Society of B.C. Performances included the don dance, the bamboo dance and the Saw T’Kwah. During the don dance both men and women wore white and blue outfits and danced to traditional drums and instruments. It was followed by the bamboo dance, which is typically performed at weddings and funerals and involves several sticks of bamboo laid on the ground in a cross stitch pattern (resembling a setup for the game X’s and O’s). continued, PAGE 4

Langley RCMP serious crimes division is still trying to properly identify the man who was found bleeding heavily from stab wounds in the 27000 block of Fraser Highway on Sunday morning. He is in his mid50s and believed to be from Langley, confirmed police spokesman Const. Craig van Herk. But what he was doing on the roadway or who his attackers were are still unknowns, he said. The man is still in serious condition in hospital. The stabbing took place at about 1 a.m. and the victim was found by paramedics outside the Alder Alley bowling alley, in the 27000 block of Fraser Highway. The victim was in such serious condition he was taken by air ambulance to hospital. Police were on the scene investigating and Fraser Highway was closed at that location well into the morning.

Washout closes 8 Avenue for days Eight blocks in South Surrey closed at least until Friday

Coroner ordered to stand trial sheila reynolds Black Press

Tracy holmes Black Press

Eight blocks of South Surrey’s 8 Avenue – between 192 and 200 Streets – are expected to remain closed through at least Friday, as crews work to repair damage triggered by Tuesday’s heavy rains. “It’s a pretty major job,” said Jeff Welch, the City of Surrey’s south-end roads and drainage manager. “We’re going down basically 30 feet and having to build the road up 30 feet, so there’s lots of gravel, there’s lots of riprap, lots of stabilization that has to be done to make sure the road doesn’t slip away.” Crews have been working since early Wednesday, after a portion of the shoulder on the Crews work to repair 8 Avenue, Wednesday. road’s south side washed out in the 19500-block of 8 Avenue he said. around 5:30 a.m. “Unfortunately, that easiest Welch said water running route meant it wiped out the down the driveway of an whole shoulder of the road.” abandoned lot just east of the To repair the damage, crews affected area carried gravel have had to remove a section that blocked the catch-basin. of the roadway itself in order “So the water had to bypass to access the problem area. the catch-basin, and it found its easiest route down the hill,” They have to build up “the toe”

No Frills supermarket coming to City this spring Brenda anderson Times Reporter

A hole left by the closure of a Langley City grocery store last August could soon be filled. The No Frills chain of discount supermarkets is reportedly set to open this spring in the Langley Mall space vacated five months ago

by IGA. Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender confirmed that a lease has been signed, signage is set to go up soon and the store could open as early as this April. After the only supermarket within walking distance of many downtown Langley City apartment and condominium

complexes — occupied largely by senior citizens — closed last summer, a free shuttle bus service was introduced to ferry customers to the PriceSmart on Fraser Highway each week. Co-sponsored by PriceSmart and the Langley Senior Resources Centre, the bus makes four runs every Friday, and according to its volunteer

driver and “navigator,” the service has been very well received. Vic Rurka and Leo Sabot said that, on average, 45 seniors use the service each week. The two men also praised the staff and management of the PriceSmart store for ensuring the seniors’ weekly shopping trips have run as seamlessly as possible.

A former B.C. coroner has been ordered to stand trial on two of four charges related to allegations he improperly examined a pair of female murder victims. Chilliwack’s Kenneth Glen Mattinson was initially facing four charges — two each of interference with a dead body and breach of trust by a public officer. However, two charges were dismissed after Kenneth Glen a preliminary hearing Mattinson in Surrey Provincial Court which concluded Wednesday. After hearing the evidence (which is subject to a publication ban), a judge ordered Mattinson to stand trial in New Westminster Supreme Court on one count of interfering with a dead body and one of breach of trust. His next court date is scheduled for March 14. At the time of his arrest in October 2010, the RCMP said a forensic identification officer at a Langley crime scene “noticed what appeared to be a pattern of questionable and possibly criminal behaviour in the manipulation of bodies.” Police said the investigation involved the murders of 36-yearold Laura Lynne Lamoureux in Langley in March 2009 and Brianna Helen Kinnear in Coquitlam the month before. Mattinson, 63, retired from the B.C. Coroners Service shortly after the investigation was launched, said police.

City moving forward on its transportation plan What are the most pressing transportation challenges facing the City of Langley? What transportation amenities are needed to help residents get around by bicycle, foot, transit, and car, and the truck/goods movement needed to support business and industry in the City?   How should the City spend its transportation dollars in the future?   These are the types of questions residents and businesses are asked to think about, as the municipality of four square miles updates its master transportation plan. “To be successful,

the development of new City of Langley transportation strategies and programs needs the full participation and input of residents,” said Mayor Peter Fassbender. Due to rapid growth and recent transportation system changes in the City and surrounding areas, the current MTP, which was adopted in 2004, requires updating. The new plan, which is to be completed over the next six months, will guide future development of all modes of transportation in the City, including the, bicycle, pedestrian, transit,

and road networks over the next 25 years. Public consultation for the new MTP will commence with an open house on Wednesday, Jan. 23 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the foyer at Langley City Hall, 20399 Douglas Cres. Those who attend will have the opportunity to review display panels about the current transportation system and its challenges, speak to staff and consultants and share their views about transportation in the City. The public is also invited to provide additional comments

The Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP has initiated a review into the circumstances surrounding a fatal crash involving a short police chase that resulted in an innocent driver being killed on 16 Avenue last October. On Oct. 29, 2012, Langley RCMP attempted to apprehend a pickup truck that had been flagged as a prohibited driver. As officers attempted to stop the truck, the driver fled the scene and three minutes later collided with two other unrelated vehicles. A 47-year-old Delta father in one of the unrelated vehicles died as a result of the collision. The Independent Investigations Office (IIO) of B.C. conducted an investigation into the actions of the RCMP members involved in the incident and concluded that there was no evidence that any police officer committed an offence related to the collision. In their report, it showed that police only pursued the suspect

for 36 seconds before abandoning the chase. In cases where an independent investigative unit, such as the IIO, has completed a criminal investigation in respect of a serious incident, the Commission also has a role in examining the conduct of RCMP members involved. “By examining the conduct of RCMP members involved in serious incidents, the Commission provides an added level of scrutiny to ensure such conduct is reasonable and policies and procedures are adequate,” said Richard Evans, the Commission’s senior director of operations. A 27-year-old Chilliwack man was arrested at the scene. No charges have been filed against him yet. He was seriously injured in the crash where it is believed, but not confirmed, that he blew the stop sign. This was the first investigation in Langley conducted by the IIO. They took over investigating police-related deaths several months ago. Prior to that, police conducted their own investigations.

Funds raised at September car show to be divided among local non-profit groups Miranda Gathercole Times Reporter

A few lucky charities in Langley are starting off the new year with a huge financial boost — $70,000 to be exact. That’s how much was raised by the Langley Good Times Cruise-In Society at their annual car show in September. The total sum is to be split among the CruiseIn’s three official charities — Langley Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, Langley Community Support Group Society (formerly Langley Stroke Recovery), and Valley Therapeutic Equestrian Association. Other local groups who helped at the event will also receive part of the donation, including Teen Challenge, Langley Boys and Girls Club, Douglas Park Community School, Kwantlen Polytechnic University Foundation, St John Ambulance, Vineyard Church, Aldergrove Ninjas Soccer, Aldergrove Cheetahs Soccer, Langley Lions , Langley Lodge, Langley Rotary and Langley Elks. Although the amount raised is lower than in past years (the 2011 show raised $86,000), it is still a significant donation for the charities, said Cruise-In director Lori Watts. “For most of our community groups it’s a large chunk of money for them and for a lot of them it is a big part of their budget for the year,” Watts said. “So for a lot of them for them to be able to do what they do, they really do rely on us a lot.” Part of the struggle at the 2012 show was a decline in sponsorships, which vice-president Eric Taylor says he hopes to turn around for 2013. “I wish it could have been more raised, but we did what we could, and we’ll try harder this year,” Taylor said. “(The charities) were incredibly happy. They do great work and I can’t imagine how they can possibly raise enough money to do what they do without fundraisers like ours.” Once a new Cruise-In board is elected at the end of January, the team will begin to formulate new strategies for the 2013 show. Watts says one of her ultimate goals is to have the spectators make donations as well. Currently only those who register a car in the show are required to pay. But with crowds of 100,000 or more showing up each year, just a $1 donation from each person could raise an extra $100,000.   “It’s a tough challenge unless we fence off the whole city – it’s pretty hard to do,” Watts said. “But that would be my dream to fence off the whole area and make people pay a buck to come in. “We’re asking the guys who are actually going to all the trouble to bring their cars out, they’re paying the money, but nobody’s paying to see the vehicles. It’s almost like we’re penalizing the car guys. It would be nice to get the spectators to throw some money in.”

Limiting omnibus bills

Most bands govern responsibly


f the federal Conservative government hasn’t already thought about its penchant for omnibus bills in Parliament, it needs to. The Idle No More movement has focused some of its attention on changes to federal legislation like the Navigable Waters Protection Act and Environmental Assessment Act, which are rolled into an omnibus bill. These bills, often part of a budget, give MPs little chance to debate important issues because there are so many items jammed together. The Conservatives did not invent this strategy, but they have honed it to a fine art. Omnibus bills began appearing regularly during the five years the Conservatives governed with a minority, and were often crafted in such a way as to keep at least one opposition party from voting against the government. While this was an understandable legislative strategy, the need for such omnibus bills does not exist when there is a majority government. But the government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper likes the approach, because it limits the usefulness of Parliament and the ability of its critics to draw much public attention. That worked fine when the critics were solely from the opposition parties. But when they are from outside Parliament and are energized by a variety of causes, as is Idle No More, omnibus bills have the potential to do a great deal of harm. The harm comes from emasculating legitimate opposition in Parliament, where differences within a democracy need to be discussed. If too many people believe Parliament doesn’t work any more, and this leads them to do serious damage to Canada’s economy because of their frustrations, omnibus bills become very dangerous. The Conservative government has nothing to fear from its opponents in Parliament. It has a majority, and it should be ready and willing to hear criticism of its plans within an elected assembly. The prime minister would serve the interests of all Canadians if he pledged to restrict or even eliminate omnibus bills for the remainder of this Parliament’s term. Idle No More may be a loose and disorganized movement, but it has the potential to serve as a force for either positive or negative change. The federal government needs to choose a path which is working towards positive change — on all types of issues.

here’s no question that some First Nations band councils in Canada are not living up to their financial responsibilities and necessary resources aren’t getting to rank-andfile members. But what’s been unfortunate over the last few days is how some federal politicians and media suggest these situations are the norm and all First Nations bands are either in financial difficulty or using money inappropriately. Those claims are particularly troubling as the Department of Indian Affairs’ website states there are 614 First Nations bands in the country and 157 are under default management because of financial matters. Ineptness and inappropriateness aren’t limited to just one race and they can be found at all levels of government, as demonstrated by the recent allegations of corruption in some Quebec cities. Here in Vernon, a mayor resigned and was sentenced for breach of trust because of false expense claims. And yet, there weren’t broad accusations that all mayors in B.C. were involved in similar activities because of what happened in Vernon. While we should all expect transparency and prudence from bands, the current situation is a blatant attempt to divert attention away from the federal government’s handling of First Nations matters. And these political games are unfortunate because they may leave Canadians believing that all First Nations are using tax dollars inappropriately. The reality, according to Ottawa’s own figures, is a vast majority of bands are operating responsibly and meeting financial requirements. Ultimately, some in government and the media may want to cling to tired paternal attitudes, but that unfairly reflects the country we live in and the ability of most First Nations to govern. —Vernon Morning Star (Black Press) The Langley Times is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry.

Robbed of life by justice system Editor: I read the story of the Dec. 31 murder in Langley with a combination of shock, sadness and amazement. Shock and sadness, because I was lucky enough to know Cole Manning as a friend. We worked side by side for many years and would walk home together, as he lived a block further along the road than me. He had his problems, and a lot of them stemmed from relationship issues.

How ironic and bitterly sad is it that in trying to put his life back into order, he loses his life to a guy who should never have been at liberty to harm him in the first place. Good decent folk do not stab their mothers or rob Mac’s stores, and they certainly do not kill one of my friends. The system which allows this kind of guy to walk free after using weapons against others is scandalous, and the

judges that made the decisions to issue one-day sentences may as well have just given him the gun back too. Cole, you have been robbed of life by someone empowered to take it. I hope justice is done and the lessons learned from your death are used to prevent others losing their friends. Paul Gabriel, Beiseker, Alberta

Resolved: Time spent more happily Editor: Re: “New Year’ brings familiar ideas” by Jim McGregor (The Times, Jan. 10). I have always hated New Year’s. I make resolutions I have every intention of keeping, but never manage to. Lack of success is disconcerting enough, but when friends and family encourage me to return to my wicked ways, it becomes downright discouraging. The year I resolved to lose weight because all my clothing had inexplicably shrunk over Christmas was typical. Four days after embarking on a high-protein,

low-fat, chelated, roughage-enhanced, yeast-free micro-biotic diet, my partner offered me a large slice of chocolate cheesecake. “Not to discourage you,” she explained, “but the growls from your stomach keep me awake at night and your growling throughout the day makes me want to leave home. Eat.” I left my resolution in the dust to make someone else’s life more bearable, but my clothes still were too small. A week into withdrawal from smoking, my friends bought me a pack of the brand they knew I smoked. As I inhaled,

the room began to spin and a measure of sanity returned. I looked down at my nicotine-stained fingers and was thankful for concerned friends, but discouraged with my inability to maintain a resolution. Oscar Wilde said: “The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it.” I have resolved to eat as I please, smoke no more but no less, to exercise when I feel that rare urge and to resist everything except temptation. I may not live as long as I hope, but the time I am allotted will be spent more happily. Ryan Lengsfeld, Nelson

Editor: Quite frankly, I’m getting really frosted about the continuous discussion about what it’s going to cost to provide Aldergrove with a nice sports, health and leisure centre. Aldergrove deserves to have a year round centre. Aldergrove is part of the Township of Langley — and the Township of Langley owes Aldergrove some consideration. Putting things like property sales on the line to justify funding is just so much garbage. It almost makes me heave. The Township found the money to pay for expansions to the new Langley Events Centre (with no discussion with the public), but it can’t find any money to pro-

vide services to a community that pays their taxes and the salaries of the councillors and mayor. Council was blind to the needs of this community by allowing Aldergrove Lake (a community and tourist attraction) in Aldergrove to die. Yes, I’m venting. I live here, I pay taxes here, and it just frosts my socks that the people who were elected by the people to address and look after the concerns of the Township have and still are turning a blind eye and a deaf ear to the people of Aldergrove. I could go one about what was supposed to happen in Aldergrove, but

never happened because council chose not to follow up, but then I digress. We may not be Fort Langley or Walnut Grove, or Murrayville (the old centre of the world for the Township), all those places that the Township seems to see as ‘pretty.’ We are Aldergrove, we pay taxes and we deserve to be heard and looked after. Quit with the ransom stuff of selling off old forest. Just find the money like you did for the expansion of the LEC. That was easy.

Compost program needs some rethinking Editor: Food scraps? Are you kidding? Why are all the time and tax dollars being spent on something that has composted itself into the Earth since time began? As one of your letter writers suggested, this plan has many holes in it. I might suggest as many holes as a goaltender at playoff time. Why are the single family homes being singled out? These are the houses which have yards and gardens for backyard composting. Apartments do not have The

such luxuries, but they are not being asked to participate. Maybe people in condos and townhouses don’t eat food. Newspapers in the compost? Does Langley City mean the newspaper that was supposed to go into the blue box? Many stores are selling bags that would make it so much easier to store the dreaded scraps. Newspapers will let the raccoons and rats think they are stealing fish and chips, especially when the hot summer

sun refries the scraps. But wait. I’ve heard it suggested that scraps be stored in a freezer. That’s just what I want in the freezer. I know this new initiative is full of good intentions, but I feel some rethinking is necessary. I would have much rather seen a program to recycle Styrofoam. Surely this is a bigger environmental threat than food scraps. Ken E. Dedrick, Langley

Not everyone is paid back Editor: I read your editorial on paying more taxes in 2013, republished in the Tri-City News on Jan. 9 on the opinion page. I would like to expand on your comment that we will eventually get our payments back from CPP. I am a widow. My husband contributed all his life to the CPP, then at 58 years of age, he died, and I thought I would receive his CPP. This is not true. The federal government gives me some of the payment — about 28 per cent of what my husband would have received. The federal government keeps the rest for itself. My husband did not pay into it all his life so the federal government could spend money entitled to him. He thought his CPP would go to his widow. It is appalling that this is being done. Perhaps you could do an article about the federal government keeping most of a spouse’s CPP when they die early. Brenda Sekora, Coquitlam

Don’t compost certain items Editor: Please, let us all understand the new green garbage collection in Langley City. Do not dispose of personal female items, baby diapers, or Kleenex of any kind in the compost. We are contributing to composting that will feed our local food supply. Think about how your green compost garbage dissipates into the soil. If you don’t understand, research more until you do. Nothing with any kind of personal body fluids should go into into the green compost. Pam Fromm, Langley

A powerful mudslide on Jan. 8 fell onto the former Langley Speedway track inside Campbell Valley Park.

Mudslide on former speedway track Mud and bushes from rainstorm pushed over guardrail and now cover portion of track Monique TaMMinga Times Reporter

A fairly large mudslide fell onto the former Langley Speedway track inside Campbell Valley Park last Tuesday ( Jan. 8). Metro Vancouver Parks has taped off the area where a


chunk of slope, where the speedway’s bleachers once stood, gave way after rain pounded Langley for days. The mud and bushes actually pushed over the guardrail and now cover a portion of the track. The Langley Speedway Historic Society maintains the site. The actual raceway closed down in the 1980s. It’s not known when or if clean-up will begin. Metro Parks did not return calls by The Times’ press deadline.

A real hero for aboriginal people There had been an astonishing 17 federal investigations before that, stemming from local claims that Derrickson was just too successful. He drove a big black Mercedes, wore expensive suits, and established a bunch of enterprises, including Canada’s first water slide. The commission was chaired by John Hall, then known as the Crown prosecutor who put serial killer Clifford Olson away, and now an appeal court judge. Derrickson’s suit jacket had a conspicuous bulge as he took the stand each day. He was packing a semiautomatic pistol, having demanded and received a carry permit after a brutal attempt on his life. The hit man, an ex-cop, was hired by people who didn’t like the bottom-line way Derrickson ran Westbank’s lease-hold mobile home parks. He showed up at Derrickson’s home one day and tried to beat him to death with a metal bar. Badly injured, Derrickson made it to his gun cabinet and shot his assailant, who survived to go to prison. Derrickson testified that his approach

he centuryold plight of Canada’s aboriginal people is back in the public eye, thanks to protests dubbed Idle No More. As with Occupy protests last year, the demands are vague. One of the claims, repeated in media coverage of protests, is that the federal government is moving to end the historic Indian Act restriction against selling reserve land. A look at the federal legislation, Bill C-45, shows this is not the case. Amendments ease restrictive provisions for leasing reserve land, which remains property of the Crown held in perpetuity for the aboriginal community. This change was initiated by B.C. aboriginal leaders so they can follow the trail blazed by one of the most entrepreneurial chiefs in Canadian history. His name is Ron Derrickson, and he served six terms as chief of the Westbank First Nation near Kelowna. One of my first big reporting assignments was covering a Royal Commission into his administration’s business affairs in the mid-1980s.

He and his brother were the first aboriginal kids to attend public school in Kelowna. Racist bullying drove his parents to move him to a residential school in Washington State. He dropped out in Grade 9, toiled on farms, learned to weld, and worked his way into ranching, real estate and politics. He never gave up or backed down, ever. The Hall

commission and all previous government probes concluded that he did nothing wrong. Derrickson sued his local accusers and won, and Ottawa began to change its racist, paternalistic ways. Which brings us back to today. Derrickson’s pioneering work is still changing the Indian Act for the better. This effort is under dishonest attack

from people whose legacy is mainly incompetence and failure. Protesters demand more unearned public subsidy, and a petulant soup-only strike is celebrated as an act of bravery. Choose your own hero. I’ve chosen mine. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and

Trans Mountain oil pipeline plan gets bigger yet

Jeff Nagel Black Press

Kinder Morgan Canada now plans to boost its proposed expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline from 750,000 to 890,000 barrels per day, bringing more oil tankers to Vancouver harbour than previously announced. The nearly 20 per cent increase in the planned capacity pushes the cost of the project up to $5.4 billion from $4.1 billion. Company president Ian Anderson said he now expects up to 34 tankers per month at its Burnaby terminal — potentially around 400 per year. The larger project reflects the recent signing of more long-term

contracts with shippers, bringing the total committed volume on the twinned line to 700,000 barrels per day. The remaining pipeline capacity would be sold on the spot market and Anderson anticipated that will be enough to supply existing customers, such as the Chevron refinery in Burnaby and other refineries in Washington State. He framed the increased demand for the pipeline as a strong statement of support from the markets and Canadian oil companies, who are increasingly forced to sell oil at a discount because of the lack of pipeline capacity to get it to international markets. “We are very, very pleased with the response from our customers,”

Anderson said. He said he’s hearing growing “concern and angst” from oil producers about their ability to access markets. “We are seeing more and more support and interest in our project,” Anderson said. “I wouldn’t say I could connect that interest directly with Northern Gateway’s prospects.” Enbridge’s project would run across northern B.C. to Kitimat, extending oil pipeline over new ground and hundreds of salmon rivers, while Kinder Morgan’s would largely follow the existing 60-year-old pipeline’s 1,150-kilometre right-of-way from northern Alberta through Kamloops to the Lower Mainland.

Anderson said the bigger Trans Mountain capacity will require a larger pipe size — 36-inch diameter instead of 30 inch — in areas such as the Lower Mainland. The pipeline goes through Walnut Grove. Kinder Morgan expects to file its formal application to build the pipeline with the National Energy Board by the end of the year. If approved, the expanded Trans Mountain pipeline could be operational late in 2017. The company conducted initial public information sessions last year but much more is promised. “One of the greatest challenges is to demonstrate and convince the public that tanker traffic through Port Metro Vancouver can con-

tinue to be done in a safe manner,” Anderson said. “We’ll be dedicating a lot of attention to that, as we have been doing already.” The provincial government has said Kinder Morgan’s project will have to meet the same preconditions B.C. has set for Enbridge to proceed, including world-class safety standards and a share of benefits. “We’re confident we can design and execute on a project that can meet parties’ concerns,” Anderson said. Kinder Morgan officials say they’ve already been preparing for further study ordered by U.S. authorities into Canadian tanker traffic near Washington State.

Jean Brown — the Nurse with the Old-fashioned Cap Miranda Gathercole


ome knew her as “Jean at Dr. Sank’s office,” others called her “Jeana,” “Mrs. Jean” or even “Miss. Moneypenny.” But most knew Jean Brown as the nurse with the old-fashioned cap. And finally, after serving Langley for 38 years, Brown is hanging up her 1950s nursing hat for retirement.

This doesn’t come easily for the 77-year-old, who describes her nursing position at Four Oaks Medical Centre as more of a love affair than a job. “I don’t know why I stayed so long, I just loved it,” Brown said, while dressed for one of the last times in her iconic white, crisp nurse’s uniform at her Cloverdale home. “I loved the doctors that I worked for – I just enjoyed the whole thing. I never woke up one day thinking ‘oh I have to go to work.’ It was always good.” Brown, a native of Lethbridge, Alberta, moved to Burnaby with her family when she was 12-years-old. Upon graduating from Burnaby North Secondary in 1953, there were just three options for women wanting to enter the workforce: become a teacher, a nurse, or work in an office. While her sister chose to do secretarial work, Brown decided to enter nursing school at Royal Columbian Hospital. At this time training was “very hard, very intense” and much different than today, Brown said. The students worked on the wards in the hospitals and had to spend several hours helping in the operating rooms and maternity wards. But one of the most essential parts of nurse training in the 1950s was their required outfits. “This is where I got to wear my cap,” Brown said. “You had to wear the cap, the full starch bib and apron, like you saw many moons ago. That was our full uniform and we had to wear it.” After graduating from nursing school in 1958, Brown took up a position at her family doctor’s office in Burnaby and stayed there for three years until she was married. She then moved to South Langley, started a family, and didn’t return to the medical world until 1974 when she applied to Dr. Tielens office in Langley City. Before the doctor’s office at the corner of Douglas Crescent and 206 Street was Four Oaks Medical Centre, it was owned by Dr. Tielens and was located across the street.

Even as Dr. Tielens retired and ownership changed to Dr. Sank, and as the office moved to its current location and expanded to a practice of four doctors, Brown has remained a constant familiarity to her patients. And despite many technological changes in the field, such as paper charts being replaced by computers (something Brown had to learn at the age of 70), some traditions she could never let go of. It was her first day at Dr. Tielens office that Brown promptly realized just how much society had changed over the decade she spent at home raising her children. “When I started at Dr. Tielens I automatically put my cap on, because that’s what I did before,” she said with a laugh. “I had my white dress on, my white shoes on, I put my cap on, and I think most of the people there were saying ‘oh my gosh.’ Most had never seen a cap before. It was obsolete.”

But for Brown it was an essential part of her uniform, and an image that would soon become synonymous with her name. “I just loved it,” she said. “You work so hard for it in training, and it was just part of my uniform, I would never think of not wearing it.” There have been several times when walking samples to the laboratories across the street that people would actually pull over and get out of their cars to compliment Brown on her uniform, she fondly recalled.

“For someone who doesn’t like to attract attention, I certainly did that wearing a cap,” she laughed. “A lot of people said they felt better just coming in and seeing the cap.”

Outside of the medical clinic, Brown is a huge movie buff, and used to

She is also one of the only female life members of the Langley Rod and Gun Club, after serving as the secretary there for many years. But most of her life’s passions were devoted to her beloved patients at work. “I love the patients, this is my big thing, the patients,” Brown said. “And of course I’ve known most of them now for 38 years. The children I knew in Dr. Tielens office were parents themselves with children of their own when I went to Dr. Sank.”

Often remembered for her great hugs, Brown said these came in handy when having to deliver bad news. That was the toughest part of her job. “It’s hard when you know that something is drastically wrong with the patient,” she said. “You just have to keep up spirits when you know that things are not good. This is where the hugs come in. I always gave lots of hugs.” And her cheery spirits did not go unnoticed. On her last day at the office on Dec. 27, 2012, several patients brought her gifts to thank her for her service. “I cried all day,” Brown said. “I was fine until someone would say something nice to me. So I told everyone, please don’t say anything nice to me. “It was really just a very hard day. It takes a while to adjust to the fact that I’m not going back.” Still trying to get used to all of her new free time, Brown says she will miss everything from Four Oaks (except the computer), and wants to thank her many patients over the years for their kindness. “My patients have always been great, more like friends,” she said. “It was always nice to see so many familiar faces everyday.”

British Columbia has one of the most rapidly aging populations in Canada. By 2031, it is estimated that 24 percent of B.C.’s population will be over the age of 65 (BC Stats, 2005). Many seniors in B.C. have more than one chronic condition with older seniors being more likely than younger seniors to have multiple chronic conditions (B.C. Ministry of Health Services, 2004). It is important to remember, however, that chronic disease, disability and loss of independence are not inevitable consequences of aging: many seniors retain good health, maintain their independence and quality of life, and contribute greatly to their families and communities. In the face of rapid population aging it is therefore clearly of great importance to consider what factors facilitate or impede healthy aging, to ensue that policies and services can be put in place that ensure that all B.C. seniors have an equitable chance of attaining a healthy old age. Achieving equitable healthy aging will not only benefit individuals but also B.C. society as a whole.

Susan Falk donates original artwork in support of McLellan Forest effort Brenda anderson Times Reporter

Brenda ANDERSON/Langley Times

Langley artist Susan Falk has created a 12”x16” painting of McLellan Forest, a 25-acre parcel of woodland in Glen Valley that has been put up for sale by the Township of Langley. Proceeds from the auction of the painting will benefit Watchers of Langley Forests (WOLF) a local group of conservationists, endeavouring to save the land from sale and subsequent development.

It’s not her first brush with charitable work — far from it. But a Langley painter has found fresh inspiration in an 80-year-old forest, threatened with destruction and has stepped in to help. The Watchers of Langley Forests’ (WOLF) efforts to save the piece of land they’ve dubbed McLellan Forest will benefit from the sale of an original acrylic painting donated by Susan Falk. The artwork, which was unveiled in the Fort Gallery on Friday, Jan. 11, will be on silent auction until the end of February. The painting is of the forest itself — 25 acres of lush woodland in Glen Valley — which Falk first visited at the end of October, after reading a story about WOLF’s fight to keep the land from being sold by the Township and subsequently developed. “I just happened to read it in the paper, so I took a stroll with Scarlett (her Newfoundland dog),” said Falk. What struck the artist was how popular the forest is, with its well-trod paths and parklike atmosphere. Although the artist isn’t opposed to development

altogether, it’s important, she said, to pay attention to what’s happening around the community. “There’s nothing wrong with awareness . . . there’s so much land under development in Langley and once it’s gone, there’s no bringing back these creeks and trees,” said Falk. Valued at $1,200, the painting, which is considerably smaller than the massive canvases Falk is well known for producing, has a reserve bid of $400. Bids will be taken in minimum $50 increments either at the gallery, or through Falk’s email account, “The idea is just to help them finance their efforts, if I can,” she said. After the painting is sold, if the future of the forest is still up in the air, Falk will continue to produce artwork for the group to sell at auction, she said, possibly moving toward her traditional larger canvases painted in oils in the process. “It would be really great if we could hang on to a section (of the land),” she said. “It’s especially important with Glen Valley being so close to Fort Langley, the Birthplace of B.C.” Fort Gallery is located at 9048 Glover Rd.

Langley Players COSCO to present casting for Carnage a talk on aging at As one production opens, preparation for the next begins Langley Players will hold auditions this month for their upcoming production, God of Carnage. Written by Yasmina Reza, the story takes place during a disastrous meeting between two couples whose sons have been involved in a schoolyard brawl. In the beginning, the couples are civilized but the encounter quickly disintegrates into a messy, and hilarious, fourway blowout. All of the etiquette barriers are discarded in this wickedly funny

comedy of ill manners and pseudo sophistication. Director Helen Embury is looking for two men and two women, all able to play characters in their 40s. She will hold auditions on Sunday, Jan. 20 and Monday, Jan. 21 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on both days at 4307 200 St. Callbacks, if needed, will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 23. Actors will be asked to do a cold read from the script. Headshots and resumes

appreciated. God of Carnage will be staged from April 18 to May 18, Thursday to Sunday at the Langley Playhouse and again on May 23 at Surrey Little Theatre as the Players’ entry to Fraser Valley Zone Festival competition. This Thursday, the Langley Players will debut the Canadian comedy-drama Jim & Shorty. The play will run each Thursday to Sunday, from Jan. 17 to Feb. 16. For more, see Thursday’s Langley Times.

Murrayville library

The Council of Senior Citizens Organizations of BC (COSCO), the largest federation of seniors’ organizations in B.C., will present a talk on memory and aging in Langley later this month. The umbrella group, which is made up of more than 75 seniors’ organizations, works to protect and enhance social programs for seniors. As part of its mandate, COSCO offers presentations of interest to seniors and their families on a

variety of topics. On Friday, Jan. 18 at 2 p.m. they will be at the Murrayville Library to present a talk called Memory and Aging. Local seniors are invited to learn how memory functions and how it changes as we age, as well as gather tips for maintaining and improving memory, and knowing when to seek professional help.

The Last Super By Kristyl Clark The Fox and Fiddle is getting ready for a facelift and will be throwing one big final bash before closing temporarily next month. Dubbed 'The Last Super' -- a fitting title for a Super Bowl party -- Langley's popular English restaurant/bar will be one of the hottest spots in town for football fans to catch the big game on Sunday, Feb. 3. "It's going to be the last day we'll be open before our renovation and a party you won't want to miss out on," said Janet MacDonald, floor manager of the establishment, which is known for its home-style comfort food, 18 beers on tap and ample seating area. "We've been open for 10 years. Now it's time to freshen up. We're really looking forward to it." And, it wouldn't be a super bowl party without winning food and drink specials, football pools, or some fabulous giveaways.

Langley’s Kristin Bauder (far left) and Lisa Roman finished third at the Canadian rowing national championships. The pair have shown enough promise to earn an invitation to train at the Canadian national rowing program’s training centre in London, Ont. They are hoping to earn a spot this summer on the senior women’s team.

Roman, Bauder set sights on Team Canada Gary ahuja Times Sports

They forged a friendship on the water and now share a common dream: to row for Canada on the senior women’s national team. With that goal in their heads, a pair of 23-year-olds from Langley — Lisa Roman and Kristin Bauder — packed up and left for London, Ont. late last month (Dec. 29). London is the training centre for the Canadian national rowing program. There are 20 rowers — all by invitation only — are in London for the rest of the month in preparation for a training camp in February in California. The coaches will use the camp to gauge the rowers to see who works well together and from that set their line-up

for a pair of World Cup events in March and July. Roman and Bauder earned the invite after a third-place finish at the Canadian national rowing championships at Victoria’s Elk Lake back in November. Roman has represented Canada before, spending last summer with the senior development squad which won gold at the Royal Henley Regatta. The summer before, she competed at the U23 world championships. Roman, a D.W. Poppy graduate who was also a competitive figure skating, won a pair of gold medals and a silver medal rowing for B.C. at the 2009 Canada Winter Games. She did not even begin rowing until after high school, as the D.W. Poppy graduate first gave the sport a try during her first year at the University

of the Fraser Valley. But after earning MVP honours in her second year with the Cascades program, she caught the eye of Washington State, and earned a scholarship to join the Cougars program. She graduated from WSU in 2012, with a degree in psychology and a double minor in sports management and human development. So while Roman may has some experience under her belt, Bauder is a relative newcomer, having only taken up the sport in the summer of 2011. That doesn’t mean Bauder isn’t used to being on the water. In fact, she was also at the same 2009 Canada Winter Games as Roman, but while Roman was rowing for Team B.C., Bauder was competing in the canoe/kayak events. But upon graduation from

R.E. Mountain, Bauder shifted her focus away from the water and to volleyball with the SFU Clan. It was only after she was done with the volleyball team and out on the water one day at Burnaby Lake, when a rowing coach persuaded her to give the sport a shot. “I still needed something to keep me competitive,” Bauder explained and she found rowing very similar to kayaking “so it fit really well with me.” It also helped that the rowing training schedule fit perfectly with her school schedule, allowing Bauder to fully commit to the sport. Bauder is one credit away from finishing her degree in criminology and she plans to do that course by correspondence. Working with John Wetzstein, a coach at Rowing Canada

Rouse lands with Giants at deadline Vancouver picks up Langley forward off waivers from Seattle

Chris RELKE/Vancouver Giants

Kodiaks win streak snapped at 10 The Aldergrove Kodiaks find themselves in unfamiliar territory: coming off of a loss. The junior B hockey club saw its 10-game win streak snapped on Saturday night as they dropped a 4-1 decision to the host North Vancouver Wolf Pack at the Harry Jerome Rec Centre. Prior to that, Aldergrove had stretched its streak to 10 games with a 2-0 victory last Wednesday (Jan. 9) against the Grandview Steelers, the Kodiaks’ second-straight shutout win. And Aldergrove was 20 minutes away from making it 11 straight as the team took a 1-0 lead after 40 minutes thanks to a power-play goal from Daniel

Higgs. But the Wolf Pack scored three times in the first 3:43 of the third period and the Kodiaks had no answer. North Van also added a goal in the final minute. Goaltender Mark Menicucci saw his shutout streak end at 169:23. The Kodiaks had not lost a game since Nov. 28 and their run has put them comfortably in second-place in the Harold Brittain Conference with 41 points, 13 points ahead of third place. The team is nine back of the division lead with a game in hand. Aldergrove will look to find

Health Matters

Healthy feet can mean the difference between good and poor quality of life. If you are able to walk, safely and without pain, you have a greater shot at maintaining your independence. Walking is an excellent overall foot exercise, but stretching and strength exercises enhance foot health. A few simple exercises performed daily can improve functionality and reduce your chances of a debilitating fall. Strength, or resistance training, may well top the list of beneficial exercises – especially as we age. It has been noted to be helpful for weight management, maintaining muscle mass and strength and combating osteoporosis. Resistance exercises tend to target/ strengthen those bones most susceptible to breakage and, when combined with balance and power moves, can help you stay active and avoid fractures. Are you still doing sit-ups? Hopefully not, as they have been shown to be particularly hard on the back. “Crunches” are an improvement but the new standard in core strengthening is now “planking.” Planking

recruits more than just the abdominal muscles – it uses all of the core muscles to improve balance and strength through motions that are more relevant to BoB Sangha everyday activities. Planks – Pharmacist, BSc the new power move. Exercise benefits extend beyond burning calories and improving muscle. There are two types of fat cells in the body, white and brown. White fat is the storage form that we typically think of, but brown fat is a metabolic tissue that burns energy. Exercise causes the body to generate a hormone called irisin which transforms white fat to brown and helps prevent the cellular changes that lead to type 2 diabetes. Discoveries, such a irisin, can lead to some amazing new therapies after much study and time, but you can enjoy some benefits now, for free, by making the lifestyle choices that advantage your body and health.

Callegari, Ryan and Prato are all from Langley.


Langley’s Brendan Rouse made his Vancouver Giants debut on Saturday night, picking up one assist in his team’s 4-3 overtime victory over the visiting Kelowna Rockets.

It is a homecoming of sorts for Brendan Rouse as he joined the Vancouver Giants. Rouse, a forward from Langley — he played in the Langley Minor Hockey Association — was picked up by the Giants off waivers from the Seattle Thunderbirds on Thursday ( Jan. 10). He made his Giants debut on Saturday, contributing one assist in a 4-3 overtime victory over the visiting Kelowna Rockets at

the Pacific Coliseum. The six-foot-one 178-pound forward had six goals and 23 assists in 42 games for Seattle prior to last week’s move. He was released after the T-Birds picked up another 20-year-old, putting them over the league limit of three per team. Rouse, who turns 21 on Jan. 28, is in his final season of junior eligibility. He has 28 goals and 107 points in 230 career WHL games. Rouse was a fifth-round pick in the 2007 WHL bantam draft and he played six games with the Brandon Wheat Kings in his rookie season before he was traded to Seattle.

Spartans offence explodes for six goals The Trinity Western Spartans opened up a 5-0 lead midway through the second period and then hung on for a 6-4 victory over the Thompson Rivers WolfPack. The two B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League rivals hit the ice at the Langley Events Centre on Friday night. “The big thing is we’re getting some scoring,” said Spartans coach Dwayne Lowder-

milk. “We brought in some guys to bang and crash and score and that’s exactly what we saw tonight. “We put pucks to the net and just found a way to score and no matter how the goals look, they all count.” The Spartans led 2-0 61 seconds into the game and then notched three more in a 71-second span in the sec-

ond period. Thompson Rivers replied with three goals to make it 5-3 after 40 minutes and then cut the lead to one with less than three minutes remaining. But during a frenetic final three minutes, played largely in Trinity Western territory, Tyler Miller scored an emptynetter from his own end to give the home side some breathing room.

Preschool & Day Care

The win was the second of the season for the Spartans (2-10-0-1). Jamey Kreller, Ryan Valdes, Mattias Schmitt, Tristano Falbo and Matt Ius had the other goals while Tim Zwiers stopped 37 of the 41 shots he faced. The Spartans hit the road on Friday versus the Selkirk Saints and Saturday against the Eastern Washington Eagles.
