A career criminal was back in court last week facing 20 charges in connection to a high profile arrest and the recovery of a large amount of stolen property taken from homes in the Fraser Valley and found at the Super 8 Motel on Glover Road on March 2, 2012. Ivan Logan Johnson, 33, is charged with everything from possessing a weapon obtained through an offence and possession of stolen property and credit cards to dealing with identity theft. He was arrested along with Dave Yaroslawsky, 29, by the Emergency Response Team and police dogs who surrounded the motel room after the two men refused to come out. Witnesses had called 911 after seeing the two men, allegedly with guns, unloading items into a motel room. Those two men are believed to be involved in up to 18 home robberies in the Fraser Valley, said Langley RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks at the time. The men were in possession of so many stolen items that police had to create a slideshows on their website to allow the public to look through the items and determine what might belong to them. The police then held a day where victims of break-ins could come to the detachment and view the property. Police recovered everything from stolen jewelry, including lockets and rings, to coins and electronics. Johnson, of New Westminster, is a career criminal with pages upon pages of crimes committed in Langley, Surrey and New Westminster, among other places. Among some of the crimes he has committed in the past 10 years include theft and dangerous operation of a vehicle. Any victims of property crime related to this investigation who would like an update on the court proceedings for Yaroslawsky and Johnson are encouraged to contact Langley Client Support and Victim Services at 604-532-3214.

Township backs housing action plan Dan Ferguson Times Reporter

The Township of Langley needs to build much more rental and affordable housing, according to the first ever housing action plan developed for the community. The plan, nearly five years in the making, was approved by council on Monday, Feb. 4, following a presentation by consultant Linda Allen, who warned the fast-growing Township needs to make sure that lower-income people, seniors, students and people with disabilities are not excluded. “We’ve heard over and over again that there really aren’t enough rental options in the community,” Allen said. “Unquestionably, there will be increasing demand for rental accommodation.” Projections show the Township population will almost double by 2041, and the number of people 65 and over will more than double during the same period, Allen said. The study estimates 50,000 more dwellings will need to be built to accommodate that growth. The study found there is a lack of affordable home options for people with special needs, defined as “youth at risk of becoming homeless, low fixed income seniors and mental health clients.” Less than one per cent of Township housing is subsidized seniors’ or family housing, compared with nine per cent in the City of Langley and five per cent in Coquitlam. On the plus side, the plan notes the Township has developed a good mix of market-rate housing and the average price of a Township house is roughly 30 per cent lower than Vancouver, according to the report. Despite that, many Langley residents find it challenging to obtain housing within their budget, the report to council states. It uses the example of a medium-income couple who was making an average of $92,000 a year in 2010 and who, if they had

Suite fees hit the law-abiding Dan Ferguson Times Reporter

Housing for seniors, such as Harrison Pointe which was under construction in 2009, will be in more demand as Langley Township grows, according to a Housing Action Plan adopted Feb. 4 by council. few debts and a “solid down payment” would qualify for a maximum mortgage of $434,000. Most detached single family houses in Langley cost more “and the Township does not have a large supply of townhouses and condominium apartments which would be affordable to median income family household,” the report states. Single-parent families, who had a median income of $43,227 in 2010, have even fewer options, while the median income for a single person, $31,977 in 2010, made them renters who could afford to pay, at most, $850 a month. The plan sets out short, medium and long-term goals to close the housing gap, including incentive programs to get private developers to build lowercost housing. It also suggests setting targets that would require 30 to 50 per cent mediumto-high density housing in new neighbourhoods, building on leased land and providing grants or fee reductions to developers, allowing rental apartments above commercial projects, reducing parking requirements

for rental housing “as transit improves” and cutting property taxes for up to 10 years in some cases. The report notes that other Metro Vancouver communities like Maple Ridge, Surrey, Abbotsford and Coquitlam provide municipally-owned land for affordable housing. The plan also calls for measures to limit the redevelopment of the Township supply of mobile home parks by making it harder for developers to bulldoze the parks, and insisting that the replacement housing developments include a minimum percentage of affordable rental units. Mobile home parks are a unique Langley issue according to Allen, who said the Township has 35 to 40 per cent of all manufactured homes in the region. Among other things, the housing action plan proposes creation of an affordable housing reserve fund, new standards for secondary suites and carrying out an inventory of the current rental housing stock The report drew a cautious endorsement from the Vancouver-based Pacific branch of the Urban Development

Institute (UDI), the national non-profit association that represents developers, property managers, financial lenders, lawyers, engineers, planners, architects, appraisers, and real estate professionals, as well as various government agencies. In a letter to Paul Crawford, the manager of the Township’s long-range planning department, UDI president and CEO Anne McMullin said using density bonusing (where a developer is allowed to construct bigger than normal buildings if they include more affordable housing) has met with “mixed results” in other communities. McMullin also expressed concern about using a “community amenity policy “ that would see charges levied on new housing projects to help pay for affordable housing. That could slow development, McMullin wrote, adding the UDI “would like to see that the additional financial burden of a societal problem (housing affordability) is not placed entirely onto new home buyers, especially when the affordable housing units are to the advantage of the entire community.”

If the Township of Langley proceeds with a planned secondary suite fee, the 1,000 homeowners who have properly registered their suites will be the first to pay as much as $580 a year. That brought Duncan Harper to Township council chambers on Monday, Feb. 4 to complain the proposal penalizes law-abiding landlords who go though the process of getting the necessary permits to add a suite to a single family home, while builders of illegal secondary suites in Langley “are getting away scot-free.” “I’ve done everything you ask, and you just want more money,” Harper told the evening public input opportunity. “I just feel cheated by council.” When Councillor Bob Long proposed phasing in the fees, Harper said he would prefer to see the Township go after the unlicensed suites. “I want you to get the people who are the cheaters,” Harper replied. “There’s way more illegal suites than there are legal suites.” Another resident, Misty VanPopta, made the same argument, saying council should concentrate on illegal suites first. A written objection was filed by Doreen McIntyre, who said a better approach might be to encourage homeowners to legalize suites. A report on the proposed fee by Roberto Cesaretti, manager of permit licence and inspection services, estimates the number of illegal suites has almost doubled in six years. According to the report, there are currently 10,000 to 12,000 illegal secondary suites in Langley Township, up from 5,000 to 8,000 in 2007. The report recommends using some of the money raised by the new fees to hire an additional staffer to handle the anticipated increase in applications for suite licences and complaints about illegal suites. The report proposes levying a fee that would range from $350 to $580 a year, depending on whether a residence is connected Township sewer and water service. A survey of other Lower Mainland municipalities by Township staff found secondary suite fees range from $500 to $900 a year. Langley Township charges annual fees on many other types of real estate, as much as $3,000 for a gas station and as little as $92.50 for a home-based business (one that does not change the residential appearance or character of the dwelling in which it is located). Staff estimate the suite fee would bring in $203,650 (after expenses) this year, rising to $667,400 by 2015. The proposal was granted preliminary approval by council Jan. 21, but will require a public hearing before a final vote is taken. A date for the public hearing has yet to be scheduled.

Gas theft suspicions lead to wild pursuit Man arrested while beating up bus driver after pursuit through Surrey, Delta, Langley and Richmond

Monique TaMMinga Times Reporter

A 27-year-old Delta man is in custody after leading police on a wild pursuit through three cities, finally being arrested as he was allegedly beating on a transit bus driver in an attempted “bus jacking” on Wednesday, Feb. 6. With the recent increase in gas thefts, members of the Langley RCMP’s street enforcement unit decided to follow a Ford truck with two fuel containers seen in the box. The truck continued to Richmond where the male driver and female passenger got out and walked along a set of railway tracks to a warehouse, said

Langley RCMP’s Cpl. Holly Marks. The two returned to the truck and hooked up a boat on a trailer before driving off. In preparing to make an arrest, Richmond RCMP were contacted and they provided marked police vehicles and two police dogs. All police units switched over to a common police radio so they could communicate with each other. As the suspect was approached by a police vehicle, he reversed and struck a parked vehicle, said Marks. He then drove around the police car and fled. Officers pursued the truck for only a short time before deciding to terminate the chase.

It’s believed the suspect was attempting to steal the bus, said Marks. The man, Troy Regnier, was arrested. The truck and the boat being towed were both stolen. Regnier is facing multiple charges. His criminal record shows he has been convicted for other violent crimes. The bus driver has recovered from his minor injuries, said Marks. Langley RCMP Insp. Amrik Virk thanked the bus driver for alerting police to the suspicious man.

Edward Joseph Biwer, 22, from Surrey, has been charged with nine counts each of robbery, assault with a weapon and disguise with intent.  He has been remanded in custody and will appear in court again on Feb. 22.  The woman, aged 31, and also from Surrey, has been released from custody to appear in court on Feb. 26. She is suspected of being the driver in all nine robberies. Police have recommended nine counts of robbery to Crown Counsel. Biwer, who is on the Langley RCMP’s list of prolific offenders, was convicted for armed robbery in August 2012, stemming from a theft with a weapon in Langley in April. He has several other convictions. Similar robberies were taking place in Surrey around the same time as the Langley crimes. Five happened at Subways. But those robberies were committed by a different suspect, who also has been arrested, said Virk.

All marked police cars stopped pursuing while specially trained surveillance police continued to follow him. The suspect drove on Highway 99 and drove through Delta and into Surrey, where he took an exit and tried to turn onto 40 Avenue, off King George Boulevard. The truck collided with a hydro pole, knocking it to the ground. The Langley officers who originated the pursuit arrived a short time later and were able to arrest the female passenger. But the driver fled on foot. He didn’t get far. Soon after, police received a call from a Coast Mountain bus driver saying there was a suspicious man who had flagged down his bus. The suspicious

PM Harper announces non-criminally responsible act in Burnaby Jeff Nagel Black Press

The Conservative federal government is pledging new justice reforms to indefinitely lock up highly dangerous mentally ill offenders who were found not responsible for their crimes. Prime Minister Stephen Harper made the announcement Friday in Burnaby and made reference to Darcie Clark, whose three children were killed five years ago in Merritt by her deranged exhusband Allan Schoenborn. The Not Criminally Responsible Reform Act tabled by the government tightens provisions for the release of offenders like Schoenborn. Courts will now be able to use a new category of high-risk mentally disordered accused. Instead of annual reviews by provincial review boards to determine if they’re fit to be released, a judge can order the offender be held for up to

three years before a review. And offenders with that designation would not be released unless a judge agrees. The courts will also be able to ban provincial review boards from issuing controversial unescorted day passes to designated offenders. Schoenborn, who is in a psychiatric hospital in Coquitlam, is slated for his next annual review Feb. 15. “These reforms cannot undo the terrible things that have been perpetrated on victims like Darcie Clark and her children,” Harper said. “But they will help her and other victims regain control of their lives.” The prime minister said Canadians have been shocked to learn some violent individuals in detention for their mental illness have been given unescorted day passes despite still being deemed a threat to public safety. “Something here is very wrong,” Harper said.

“The safety of the public must be the paramount consideration.” Provincial review boards will now be able to better restrict the movements of offenders it does release, by ordering they not have contact with victims or other individuals, and by ordering them to stay away from certain places. A coalition of mental health groups urged Ottawa to carefully consider the need to promote the recovery of mentally disordered offenders while pursuing public safety aims. “These changes will unnecessarily heighten the public’s fears, increase negative stigma around mental illness and ultimately undermine the reintegration of [not criminally responsible offenders] without increasing public safety,” said Schizophrenia Society of Canada CEO Chris Summerville. He said offenders declared not criminally responsible account for just 0.001 per cent of all criminal charges and they have a far lower rate of recidivism —  around five per cent — compared to more than 40 per cent for regular convicts serving federal time.

Wad of cash found in clothing donation Did you happen to donate a lot more than clothing to Big Brothers recently? Coquitlam RCMP are looking for the rightful owner of a “large sum of cash” found in a wallet donated to Big Brothers recently. On Feb. 6, employees at a Value Village store in Coquitlam were surprised to find a large sum of cash in a wallet among a clothing donation. The donations were collected from more than 900 homes in the Coquitlam, Langley, Chilliwack, White Rock and Richmond areas. “There is no identification in the wallet. We don’t know if someone had accidentally left it in

the clothing donation,” said Cpl. Jamie Chung. “For obvious reasons, we are not disclosing how much money was found and would like to speak to the owner of the property.” The Coquitlam Mounties urge the owner of the cash to immediately contact  Const. Kat Blach at 604-945-1550 and quote file number 2013-3608. “Keep in mind that we have to turn the money over to the Receiver General after 90 days from the date it was found. If you think you are the owner of the wallet, it is important for you to contact us as soon as possible,” added Chung.

It’s time to put down those cellphones Monique TaMMinga Times Reporter

Police across B.C. are warning drivers they are on the look out for chatty people and texting tailgaters this month. Holding a cellphone in your hand on speakerphone will get you pulled over and ticketed and so will leaving a cellphone on your console and texting while stopped at a light, said RCMP Cpl. Robert McDonald of traffic services. The reason for the expensive reminder of these driving laws is the number of deaths and crashes caused by distracted drivers.

In 2012, 30 per cent of fatal crashes involved distracted drivers and 37 per cent of serious injuries involved distracted driving. Since the ban on using hand-held cellphones while driving took effect in January 2010, many people haven’t stopped talking and texting, they have just changed how they do it, said police and ICBC. Since 2010, police in B.C. have issues 105,972 tickets. At $167 per ticket, that translates to $17.69 million chatty and texting drivers contributed to policing and municipal revenues. Drivers with an L and N are not permitted to use any devices, including hands-free devices, said police.

Police have released two sketches of a man they say twice exposed himself to a pair of 11-year-old girls in December.

Police looking for Langley City flasher Langley RCMP are seeking the assistance of the public to identify a man who exposed himself to two young girls in the 20300 block of 54 Avenue shortly before Christmas break. Two 11-year-old girls were walking home from school when they passed a man leaning on a car smoking a cigarette.  When the man saw the girls he turned towards them, pulled his pants down, exposing himself.  The girls ran and the man did not follow, said police. Days later, in the same area, the girls again came across the man and he again exposed himself to them. Again the girls ran away.

Crackdown is needed

2010 Games a bargain

A

provincial crackdown on distracted driving by police during the month of February is a welcome step. Police say statistics show that 30 per cent of traffic deaths are due to distracted drivers, with 37 per cent of serious injuries in crashes attributed to drivers not paying proper attention to the road. These are staggering numbers and beg the question — why has so much effort been put into tightening up drinking and driving laws, and so little towards distracted drivers? Drivers talking on cellphones or texting are the most commonlydistracted, but there are many reasons that drivers become distracted. Eating while driving can be a big distraction, as can driving with pets in the front seat. Children can at times distract drivers as well. Police will be on the lookout for all kinds of distractions during February, and chances are they won’t have much trouble spotting some. Despite a law that is now three years old, which prohibits people from talking on handheld phones while driving, it remains a very common practice. Sit at a major inersection for five to 10 minutes and watch drivers. It won’t be hard to spot a number of drivers on hand-held phones. If people need to talk on their phones so badly while driving, they should be setting up a hands-free system in their vehicles. Yet many continue to ignore this option — and put their own lives, and those of others, at risk by their bad behaviour. Part of the reason this problem persists may be the minimal fines. While police have issued almost 106,000 violations since January, 2010, the fine for using a hand-held phone while driving is just $167. Police say some drivers can be charged with driving without due care and attention and be fined $368, but both of these fine amounts pale in comparison to the penalties handed down to drivers who blow over .05 under the new drinking and driving rules. It is obvious that lawmakers don’t take the issue of distracted driving too seriously. Perhaps it is because they haven’t found a way to tie the distracted driving laws so closely to victims. But there are no shortage of them, as the police figures show. Members of the public need to take the issue seriously and pull over when making a call. At the same time, lawmakers need to consider if stiffer penalties for driving while distracted are needed.

he Olympic venues for the 2014 Sochi Games will be ready “on time and with the appropriate quality,” Russia’s president Vladimir Putin declared last week. But staging these Olympics is coming at a truly mind-boggling cost. The country says preparing the world stage in Sochi will reach $50 billion — a cost more than five times the original estimate. Sochi is set to become the most expensive Olympic Games in history. It makes Vancouver 2010 look like an absolute bargain for taxpayers. Richmond first pledged its allegiance to the 2010 Olympics by plunking down $500,000 to assist in the bid. To critics, the cash just represented 200 years of property taxes. But what the city landed was the Richmond Olympic Oval. It cost $178 million to build, and millions more to outfit in and out. Understandably, the price tag was another tough pill to swallow. But with millions from a land sale and casino returns, it made financial sense, and today Richmond has a growing centre for recreation and athletics. It cost $925 million to stage the entire 2010 Games, the B.C. government concluded. That figure doesn’t include the billions spent in security, the Canada Line, highway construction or developing a new convention centre. Officially Vancouver Olympic organizers had a $1.884 billion budget, but many say the real total is closer to $6 billion. Whatever the number, the cost of Vancouver doesn’t come close to Sochi, which has already spent $37.85 billion. In Vancouver, athletes won 26 medals — Canada’s best Winter Games showing in history — in the most-watched Winter Olympics, with an estimated TV audience of 3.5 billion. Positive impacts can be measured in economic growth and local development, and there are many other intangibles. Staging the Olympics is the ultimate test in managing massive projects. —Richmond Review The Langley Times is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry.

Many benefits to year-round schooling Lengthy breaks would still be possible with different calendar Editor: Like the old saying goes, “You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make it drink.” That seems to be the case with the issue of year-round schooling with many Langley parents as reported by Monique Tamminga and published in the Jan. 31 edition of The Times. Despite Langley superintendent of schools Suzanne Hoffman’s cogent defence of year-round schooling, it seems that some vocal parents refuse to even consider a far superior calendar format for delivering educational programs. Unfortunately, year-round schooling has not been implemented in enough B.C. schools for a sufficient length of time to ascertain its benefits over the anachronistic, agrarianbased 10-month system which has been in place since a majority of people lived on farms throughout the province, if not the country. For that, we may have to look to the United States and several European countries for assessing the value of year-round schooling. I can assure you that it is, by far, a better format. When it comes to education, whose needs come first? Students? Parents? Teachers? Administrators? Taxpayers? Students should come first. In today’s world, students need to be more adequately prepared for a very challenging future with a shrinking Canadian job market and the contracting out of thousands — if not hundreds of thousands — of jobs to other parts of the world. With advances in computer-assisted learning or e-learning, individualized educational programs and innovative forms of delivery of educational programs, students can be prepared more adequately for their future. Year-round schooling is one of those forms.

The 45-15 system should be adopted provincially from Kindergarten to the postgraduate level, so that all students have a greater amount of flexibility in obtaining an education anywhere in the province, should their parents move or should they wish to enrol in a more specialized “magnet” school or advance to another level. Unfortunately, I fear that a BC Liberal government or an NDP one will not have the intestinal fortitude to move to such an integrated, province-wide system, due to the resistance of a few parents and teachers and post-secondary instructors and professors who have grown too comfortable in their luxurious working status quo. One advantage not thought of yet with the 45-15 system is the ability of administrators, teachers and students to take a 45-day leave for sabbatical or vacational purposes. Administrators and teachers could take in-service training or upgrade their credentials during a 45-day-long period, preceded and followed by a 15-day break which they could use either for a vacation or for preparation of learning materials. Students could take a 75-day-long break for work (high school and university-level students) or for family vacation purposes. In light of the average high school student completing most of their instructional time by early June, a 75-day break would be no different than the current school calendar’s summer holiday period. I’m afraid that most of the comments reported in the article do not really hold water. Kids are kids no matter what their school calendar looks like. Yearround schooling will not impact on their being “kids.” Camping could be carried out during any of the four 15-day breaks in the school year, including winter camping, which is

quite an enjoyable experience. Children can be involved in all kinds of outdoors activities, regardless of the weather, and only need to be dressed adequately. Summer camps can also become winter, spring or fall camps, too. University students would be on the same calendar as younger students and could work during the four 15-day breaks or take time off to work during any of the 45-day sessions, as we have already addressed. Free stuff, like going to the park, can happen during any season. All you have to do is dress appropriately for it. Indoor play centres are not the only places for children to play. Year-round schooling with an extended day can address over-populated school issues by having classes being conducted between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. or later, particularly at the high school and post-secondary levels. Air conditioning can be installed, as it would be a capital cost and not an operational cost. The number of children involved in small agriculture or hobby farming, let alone large farms, is relatively small and they can opt for the 75-day summer break under the 45-15 day scheme, if need be. In conclusion, I hope that Langley and other school districts can turn to the next government and seek support for yearround schooling as I have suggested. It would see an improvement in student performance, in attendance, in reduced time spent in review in September, in use of schools and in helping students in meeting the demands that their future will bring. G.E. MacDonell, Abbotsford

Creative thinking needed on Aldergrove pool Editor: Aldergrove residents do not want or need a short course pool. They want and need a pool where province wide swimmers could compete — a 50-metre pool. Having a provincial swim meet would bring in young and old swimmers to Aldergrove from all over the province, and create financial benefits to most local businesses. Obviously the current location will not meet those requirements. Selling a pristine forest to build a pool that doesn’t meet the The

requirements of a provincial swim meet, or the foresight of Aldergrove residents, would be a mistake. Walnut Grove has a 50-metre pool. With a 50-metre pool in Aldergrove, there would be two pools available for swim meets. Maybe, with those two pools, both 50-metre, some Olympic events could eventually happen here in the Township of Langley. All the participants at these swim meets could visit the wonderful heritage trees we now have in Glen Valley. I can already

hear the young visitors’ voices: “Wow! Look at the size of that tree.” Save the trees and build a 50-metre pool later, on a location better suited for it. Creative thinking is required here. Has anyone thought of selling the school property, and with that revenue purchasing a different pool site? This can’t be that difficult, with some creative thinking. Gary Davis, Fort Langley

Too soon for poutine Editor: The caption under the front page photo in the Jan. 31 Times, concerning the preparation of poutine, states in part “the traditional meal, which originated in Montreal in the 1500s.” This statement is not historically correct, as Paul Chomedey de Maisonneuve did not found the settlement of Montreal until May, 1642. Also, even though Jacques Cartier did make three voyages to Canada, in 1534, 1535 and 1541, and proclaimed the land as belonging to France, no French settlement was established at that time. The first permanent French settlement in Canada was established by Samuel de Champlain in 1608 at Quebec (City). W. Nicholson, Langley

Legal pot boosts tourism revenue

Editor: Press reports from Washington State and from Colorado clearly indicate that the recent vote on legalization of marijuana are having a very dramatic effect. Prosecutions of pot users have virtually ended, allowing states to redirect policing resources to more important issues. We are already seeing a dramatic effect on tourism, as more Canadians head south to take advantage of a weekend outing and a legal puff. It gives a whole new meaning to cross-border shopping. Washington State is becoming a tourist destination for cannabis connoisseurs. Border communities like Langley can only watch as tourists (and dollars) head south.

The rate of hallway medicine where patients are treated in hospital overflow areas has fallen by nearly 60 per cent in Fraser Health. also committed to a huge redevelopment of Royal Columbian Hospital and other expansions or redesigns are under consideration. “It is clearly understood that expanding hospitals is not the sole solution to meeting increasing demand,” the report said, adding there’s a critical need to increase communitybased services. The report shows the average length of stay of a patient is down from 8.4 to 8.1 days but not yet at a target of 7.9. Some of the gains were made through methods like having home care staff at emergency departments intercept incoming elderly patients and redirect them back home, provided it’s appropriate and sufficient home support can be dispatched. “When we stopped caring for patients in the south hallway [at Surrey Memorial] and I saw that the number

All hospitals are now beating a target of having more than 90 per cent of hip surgeries performed within 48 hours of the patient being admitted. “We cannot take our foot off the gas,” the report says, cautioning that “there will continue to be pressure on access to services and from time to time there will likely be congestionrelated events.” Fraser Health previously estimated the region will be short 1,100 beds by 2020 but that study is being updated to recalculate expected demand for acute care beds.

A six-month drive to cut hospital congestion in Fraser Health has led to a significant drop in patients being treated in hospital hallways or other overflow areas. The previous average of 100 admitted patients at any time getting hallway medicine in overflow areas has been cut to 43, and they’ve been eliminated entirely at some hospitals, according to a health authority report on the improvements. Former health minister Mike de Jong directed Fraser Health last June to pursue improvements on five fronts after the report of the Fraser Health Congestion Review Panel flagged ongoing high levels of congestion that many staff considered intractable. One of the biggest gains reported was a cut by nearly half in the rate of C. difficile infections in area hospitals, attributed to enhanced cleaning and hand-washing strategies. Alarmingly high rates of the bacteriaspread illness had prompted the health region to send roving “super clean” teams through six hospitals in early 2012. The congestioncontrol exercise didn’t reach all of its targets. It succeeded in increasing the percentage of admitted ER patients getting a hospital bed within 10 hours to 58 per cent — up

magine a province where party leaders are chosen in an independently supervised vote, with 12-year-olds, dead people and pets prevented from voting.

One where corporations and unions have to advertise in their own name instead of financing political parties and then disclosing millions in donations months after the election is over. Imagine a province where elections are held based on audited financial statements, not a collection of election promises that will be dismissed as a work of fiction by the new regime if the incumbent party is defeated.

The idea is for the government to table the annual budget, present the audited public accounts for the previous year, then have an election that rests on tested financial statements and initial results for the current forecast. Both the B.C. Liberal Party and the NDP have expressed support for this idea. The independents suggest that this brief continued, PAGE 15

three-week legislative session is a good time to do it, so the next government can implement it. I asked Mike de Jong, the B.C. Liberal finance minister and house leader, if he would consider it. He allowed that it is interesting, but it’s not contemplated for

the pre-election session. That will be dominated by returning the provincial sales tax, and the usual jousting over untested spending and revenue proposals. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com tfletcher@blackpress.ca

THE GATEWAY

OF HOPE

The Doctor is In At The Salvation Army Gateway of Hope we are very blessed to have an onsite medical room, staffed voluntarily by two local doctors - Dr. S. Tyler and Dr. T. Sleigh. At present the doctors are at the Gateway once per week attending to a variety of our guests needs. They can assess a variety of concerns, such as: diabetes, nutrition, minor wounds, asthma, cholesterol, skin and lung conditions, check blood pressure and much more. When we had a chance to talk to Dr. Tyler about why he helps at the Gateway, he told us that he has a long history with The Salvation Army. When he was 5 years old, his parents had separated and they were struggling at Christmas-there were no presents. Someone suggested a Christmas production at The Salvation Army, where there were puppets, goody bags and Santa even showed up and gave out presents. Dr. Tyler received a present and he was thrilled to open the package and find a toy airplane (which started a love with airplanes that he has to this day). The whole thing had a big impact on him and so now that he’s in a place where he’s able to give back he thought what better place than The Salvation Army. He had been thinking of opening a free clinic somewhere in Langley, when he ran into Troy Gaglardi, Director of Operations at the Gateway of Hope. When Troy mentioned the need for medical aid at the Gateway it was an answer to prayer for all concerned. The doctors provide a much needed resource at the Gateway of Hope.

Boston Pizza restaurants, including in Walnut Grove, are asking people to share the love this Valentine's Day with a heart-shaped pizza and support worthwhile charities at the same time. One dollar from the sale of each heartshaped pizza on Valentine's Day will go to the Boston Pizza Foundation in support of its many charities, including the Heart & Stroke Foundation, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and Kids Help Phone. Guests can also purchase red paper hearts for a $2 donation and write a Valentine message to someone special. The hearts are posted throughout the store to fill the walls with love.

Onni brings mix of homes to False Creek

Block 100 a taste of waterfront living Onni is bringing a taste of waterfront living to its newest development, Block 100. With 231 homes, Block 100 will include a mix of condominiums and townhomes, with a variety of floorplans. The development consists of three blocks: Quebec, Centre and Main. Located in southeast False Creek, Block 100 is perfectly situated for homeowners of all demographics. Whether you want to walk to Rogers Arena to catch a Vancouver Canucks game or grab a water taxi to Granville Island, you’re just minutes away from everything you can imagine. The Seawall is right outside, and the Central Valley Greenway begins on your

doorstep. Wide-plank laminate flooring throughout the main living areas is standard, while stainless-steel appliances and composite countertops with a breakfast bar in most homes are convenient and modern. The white gloss backsplash cabinetry offers plenty of storage. The bathrooms are luxurious and soothing, with heated porcelain tile floors, a linear-style deep soaker tub with a tiled front and a frameless glass shower and door with mosaic-tiled base and high-gloss wall tile. Homes start at $268,900. For more information visit onni.com/block100 or call 604-682-8801.

NHL legend Lafleur in Langley Hockey Hall of Famer Guy Lafleur in town at Pastime Sports and Games NHL Hall of Famer Guy Lafleur was in town on Sunday helping to raise money for the the B.C. Society for Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse. Lafleur played 1,127 NHL games and won five Stanley Cups during his 17-year NHL career.

All five Stanley Cup victories came with the Montreal Canadiens, where he spent the bulk of his career. Lafleur also played a season with the New York Rangers and then two years with the Quebec Nordiques before retiring in 1991. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1988. The 61-year-old Lafleur was at the Pastime Sports and Games in Langley on Sunday, signing autographs and memorabilia for fans.

Miranda GATHERCOLE/Langley Times

Guy Lafleur relives his hockey days with a mock Stanley Cup during a signing session at Pastime Sports on Sunday. The owner of the cup, Martin Chow, bought the Cup during the 2011 playoffs when the Vancouver Canucks played the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup finals. Lafleur’s signature is the third on Chow’s Cup, joining Ryan Walter and Larry Melnyk.

Wisconsin next stop in Ellenwood’s travels Gary ahuja Times Sports

T

rack and field has taken Georgia Ellenwood many places. She has been overseas to France and Spain with Team Canada, as well as all to parts of Canada and the U.S. for various other meets. But for the next four years, the sport will take her primarily to Madison, Wisc. where she will attend the University of Wisconsin. Ellenwood, a senior at Langley Secondary School, signed her national letter of intent last Wednesday morning (Feb. 6) to attend the NCAA Division 1 Big 10 school. She had verbally committed to the Badgers back in December. “It was my first recruiting visit and they just had everything I wanted,” she explained about the decision. Other schools interested in signing Ellenwood — the topranked junior heptathlete in Canada — included the University of Oregon, Indiana University, University of Hawaii and the University of Nebraska. “It was a difficult decision because they all had so much to offer and the atmosphere on each campus was incredible,” Ellenwood described. “I felt that the energy and spirit on campus matched my personality.” And while visiting the Wisconsin campus helped with the decision, what really helped turn things in the Badgers’ favour was a visit to Langley by Nate Davis, the team’s throwing coach. “And the coach was one of the main reasons why I went there; he is an amazing coach,” Ellenwood said. Davis visited Ellenwood even before her trip to Madison, and she said he was the only coach to do so. “He didn’t have to do that and all the other coaches didn’t do that,” she said. “And he was the only one who did that and that was kind of a sign.” Ellenwood was also impressed during her visit with her future teammates. In 2012, Wisconsin

Georgia Ellenwood competes in the long jump at the 2012 Canadian Legion youth track and field championships in Prince Edward Island. Track and field has taken Ellenwood across Canada and to other parts of the world, and now to the University of Wisconsin where she has accepted a scholarship offer. swept the podium at the Big 10 championships for heptathlon, as well as placing all three in the top 20 at the NCAA championships. For their part, the Badgers are thrilled to land Ellenwood. “We are super excited to get her,” said Davis. “She is a fantastic athlete. “Anytime you can get someone who has the resume she does — internationally and what she has done as a high school athlete — it is huge for your program.” “It shows by the schools she

was considering,” he added. “We were fortunate to add her.” Davis said making home visits is part of his recruiting routine. “I put a lot of weight into getting to know athletes and their families,” he explained. “I think the difference between great high school and junior success and taking it to the next level at the NCAA or international level, really has a lot to do with getting to know people and relationships, and things like that.”

In 2012, Ellenwood won her third consecutive B.C. high school girls’ heptathlon title. She became just the third three-time winner of the event and will go for the fourpeat this spring. The heptathlon is made up of seven events: the 100m hurdles, high jump, shot put, 200m, long jump, javelin throw, and 800m. The events are split up over two days. Ellenwood, who trains with the Langley Mustangs Track and Field Club, left for Arizona last

VIETNAMESE CUISINE

week for a Canadian Olympic Development camp. “So far, the camp has been intimidating and inspiring at the same time,” she said. “Seeing all these Olympic athletes kind of frightens me but also motivates me to become one of them.” Ellenwood was scheduled to return today (Thursday) after completing two-a-day training sessions. “My goal is to show that I deserve to be on the Olympic team in the future,” she said. Having represented Canada at the youth and junior levels the past couple of summers, Ellenwood has identified the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro as her long-term target. Short-term, she is aiming to qualify to represent Canada’s junior national team and compete at the junior Pan-American Games in Lima, Peru in August. And Wisconsin will be her training grounds while she studies, although she will return home in the summers to compete for Canada and B.C. in international and national competitions, respectively. “Wisconsin was pretty much everything I need and what I think will get me to the Olympics in the long run,” she said. “They had all the best athletes, the best coaches, the best facilities. It all fit together.” She is also happy to have her schooling decision out of the way so she can focus on her last five months of high school. “When I was trying to decide, it was so stressful because they were all amazing schools and I had to pick one,” Ellenwood said. “That was super stressful; I was on the phone with coaches almost every day (so) it is good to just settle down.” She also thanked her coaches with the Mustangs the past seven years, Dwayne Lotnick and Kim Chapdelaine. “Georgia is a phenomenal talent,” said Brent Dolfo, the Mustangs’ president. “Her dominant performances as a high school athlete rank right up there with former Mustangs Debbie Brill and Leah Pells, who both competed for Canada in multiple Olympic Games.”

Kelsey Neil of the Langley FC U16 Knockouts knocks the ball into the net, just past the grasp of North Shore Impact goalkeeper Michaela Steele at Willoughby Community Park on Sunday. The Knockouts won the game 4-1 and improved to 15-2-1, which is good for top spot in the B.C. Coastal Girls’ Soccer League U16 Division standings.

Spartans set for Dino attack A date with the Dinos stands in the way of the Trinity Western Spartans advancing to the Canada West final four championships. The women’s volleyball team earned a split with the Alberta Pandas in Edmonton to finish the regular season with a 19-3 record and the second seed in the playoffs. They host the Calgary Dinos (11-11) in a best-ofthree quarter-final series tonight (Thursday), Feb. 15, and if necessary, Feb. 16 at the Langley Events Centre. The Spartans, ranked second in the country, went a perfect 11-0 at home. TWU goes into the playoffs on a high winning in five sets on Saturday after dropping a four-set match to Alberta on

Friday. “It was a really exciting match and I thought the girls did a great job of rebounding from yesterday,” said coach Ryan Hofer. A big key in the win was the play of setter Kelci French, who finished with 46 assists. “Her locations and decisions really brought a lot to the floor and made the players around her better,” Hofer said. “Alberta runs a solid offence with experienced attackers so it was important that our servers put pressure on them. Our middles also had a significant impact on the game.” In Saturday’s five-setter, Alberta won the first and third sets 25-20 and 25-22 while the Spartans took sets two

and four, 29-27 and 25-21, respectively. The decisive fifth set went in favour of the visitors 15-12.

The Langley Rivermen still have work to do if they hope to compete with the powers of the B.C. Hockey League. The local junior A hockey club faced a tough test, battling three of the BCHL’s top four teams in a span of four days. And the team got off to a great start, doubling up the Island Division-leading Victoria Grizzlies 6-3 on Friday night at the Langley Events Centre. The Grizzlies are also the top team in the entire league. But that was the highlight of the weekend as they dropped a 5-0 home-ice loss to the Merritt Centennials on Saturday.

The Rivermen closed the long weekend on Monday afternoon, coming up on the wrong end of a 4-1 loss to the Mainland Division-leading Surrey Eagles at the South Surrey Arena. “We are definitely in games, we are competitive,” said Rivermen head coach and general manager Bobby Henderson. “It is consistency (that we need) and that is part of the inexperience.” “But we expect results; we have to be better.” Against Victoria, Langley led 3-0 five minutes into the game and then 6-1 after 40 minutes. Austin Azurdia paced the attack with two goals and an assist while Mitch McLain, James Robinson and Derek Sutliffe had

March 9 & 10 2013

TWU splits with top-ranked Golden Bears A split against the the top-ranked team in the country has the Trinity Western Spartans seeded second heading into the post-season. The men’s volleyball team, which is now ranked third in the country, traded four-set victories with theAlberta Golden Bears (20-2) over the weekend in Edmonton. The Spartans were fifth prior to the matches. The Spartans (16-6) host the Winnipeg Wesmen (11-11) in the Canada West best-of-three quarter-finals at the Langley Events Centre. The teams split during their two regular season matches. Alberta won on Friday while TWU returned the favour on Saturday. “The guys responded amazingly well to last night,” said TWU coach Ben Josephson. “Last night we played well in a couple of phases but let a couple of things get away. Tonight, we cleaned up those plays that got away and we actually improved on some other areas.” In addition to some strong serving, Josephson felt the play of setter Jarrod

Offereins helped dictate the team’s play in their 3-1 (25-21,25-13,19-25,25-13) victory. “I thought Jarrod had his best setting match of his career, which allowed our offence to play at a really high level,” Josephson explained. “The stability and patience we showed and the pressure we kept Alberta under in that fourth set was great.” Offereins finished with 46 assists and his quarterbacking helped the team finish with a .440 hitting percentage. Brad Kufske led the attack with 18 kills while Nick Del Bianco added 11 and Steven Marshall had 10. Del Bianco also had four aces while Johnn Wiebe had 10 digs. In Friday’s match, the teams traded the first two sets — 25-23 for Alberta and 25-21 for TWU — before the Golden Bears closed things out at 25-18 and 28-26. Marshall (19 kills), Del Bianco (14 kills, 10 digs) and Kufske (11 kills) led the team. A big difference in the game was digs and serving. Alberta finished with 72 digs

and eight aces compared to the Spartans’ 58 and four. TWU also had 14 service errors. The Spartans host Winnipeg tonight (Thursday) and Friday at at 8 p.m. If necessary, the teams would play Saturday at 2:30 p.m. ••••• Two gold, three silver and one bronze — and a host of personal bests and school records — are what Trinity Western Spartans track and field athletes returned home with from the University of Washington Open over the weekend. Emma Nuttall won the high jump, clearing 1.75m, while the mens’s 4x100 team of James Linde, Nicholas Ayin, Lucas Ference and Calum Innes was tops in their race at 3:23.64. Alison Jackson picked up the silver in the 3000m with a time of 9:51.07 and Innes was second in the 60m hurdles, finishing in 8.22. The women’s 4x400 relay team of Maya Daly, Anastasia Pearse, Meg Haradine and Fiona Benson also placed second. And Mihai Prajea was third in the 1000m at 2:28.52.

TWU beats the Heat The Trinity Western Spartans avoided a fourthquarter meltdown against the UBC Okanagan Heat to win 71-69, their sixth straight Canada West men’s basketball victory. And coupled with a 73-68 win the night before against the Heat, the Spartans are bound for the playoffs for a third straight season. The Spartans hosted the Heat on Friday and Saturday at the Langley Events Centre, improving to 11-9. The record has the team tied for third spot in the Pacific Division with the University of the Fraser Valley Cascades and the two teams close out the regular season with a home-and-home series, Friday in Abbotsford and Saturday at the LEC (7 p.m.) The Spartans nearly blew a 21-point lead in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s win. But with the score tied at 69, Tristan Smith hit a pair of free throws with 1.8 seconds remaining and then blocked a buzzer-beater three-pointer to preserve the victory. Denny McDonald and Tonner Jackson had 16 points apiece while Smith had 13 points to go along with his six assists, six steals, five rebounds and one blocked shot. In Friday’s win, Jackson led the offence with 19 points while Smith, Mark Perrin and Kurtis Osborne had 10 points apiece. ••••• The Trinity Western Spartans women’s basketball team made it four wins in their past six games after knocking off the UBC Okanagan Heat twice at the Langley Events Centre. The Spartans won 60-45 on Friday and 74-65 on Saturday, improving to 7-13 on the season. Holly Strom led the team in scoring both games and with her combined 45 points, set a new team single-season scoring record with 386 points, bettering the mark of former Spartan Taylor Stuart (367 points). The team, which did not qualify for the Canada West playoffs, closes the season with a home-andhome series against the University of the Fraser Valley Cascades, including Saturday at the LEC at 5 p.m.
