‘Compromise’ pool approved for Aldergrove Supporters of larger pool tangle with Township council By DAN FERGUSON Aldergrove Star

Trolley starts serving north route Aldergrove Star
The Aldergrove Trolley Company has expanded its service in this community. The north route, serving Gloucester Industrial Estates along 56 avenue, is no longer under development as service started on Monday June 24. The bus service will begin at 6 a.m. and
end at 6 p.m. and the cost will be $2.50 each way. The south route has been running for a few weeks and the ridership is increasing day by day as the word spreads. “The community loves the trolley on the road and so do the local businesses,” said spokesperson Michelle Evans.
“We have had huge support from several local businesses. We have companies offering reimbursement of rider tickets for shopping in their stores. Residents of Pioneer Park love the trolley picking them up to take them into town to do some shopping or to grab a quick bite at the local restaurants.”
The people who are campaigning for a larger pool in a yet-to-be built Aldergrove recreation centre clashed with the people who must find the funds to pay for it Monday afternoon ( June 24) at Langley Township council. A proposal to build a four-lane lap pool at the former Aldergrove Elementary school site at Fraser Highway and 270 Street was condemned by Joanne Nicolato, the chair and founder of the 116-member Aldergrove Recreation and Pool Society, the group that launched the campaign to build an eight-lane pool. She called the plan a “slap in the face” to Aldergrove residents, saying the society was “deeply disappointed by a consultant’s report that recommended a four lane, 25-metre “short course” pool instead of the eight lane, 50-metre “long course” pool the society is seeking. They could live with 25 metres, she said, but not four lanes. A “bare minimum” would be six, she said. Nicolato went on to warn the pool could become an issue in the next municipal election in 2014. “It looks like this community may be getting the shaft again,” Nicolato said. “Aldergrove residents may need to seriously think about how this current council has serviced their long overdue needs.” Councillor Steve Ferguson objected, calling Nicolato’s remarks “quite abrasive,” “not fair” and “not respectful.” Ferguson said Aldergrove will be doing doing better than the city of Langley, which is “a lot bigger” and does not have an indoor pool. The “Aquatic Needs Assessment” report by Professional Environmental Recreation Consultants (PERC) Inc. said anything more than four lanes would be under-used. “One should be very careful about the eventual scale and size of the proposed new pool and not proceed with a facility that is too large and unsustainable for this relatively small market of 13,000 to 20,000 residents,” the PERC document stated. The PERC report did list a six-lane pool as an option, but warned it would operate at 31 to 36 per cent capacity at first, rising to no more than 51 per cent capacity “in the long term future.” Going from four to six lanes would add $600,000 to $1 million to the cost of the project, plus an extra $150,000 to $200,000 to operate, the report estimated. Going to eight lanes would add even more expense, mayor Jack Froese said.

Township reworks 1979’s official community plan By MONIQUE TAMMINGA Aldergrove Star
For the first time since 1979, Langley Township will be looking at redoing its Official Community Plan. A lot has changed since 1979 in Langley — the population has doubled since then, now topping 100,000 people. Large plots of farmland are now malls, big box stores and high density housing. Old farmsteads have been torn down along areas such as 208 Street, where high density housing has gone in. But other areas like Aldergrove, with some areas zoned industrial yet standing beside housing, need a fresh look, said Township administrator Mark Bakken. Brookswood also may be changing and little tweaks here and there in Fort Langley need to take place too, he said. He said the Township has been tweaking the OCP here and there since 1979. At their June 17 meeting, council gave the new OCP first and second reading, but asked for a full workshop session on what exact changes are planned and what they can include. This was held June 24. The OCP document council was given is more than 200 pages. It’s being done because Metro Vancouver requires a regional context statement by July 29 — for its regional growth strategy. The battle which has come out of this, is who gets to decide on land use in Langley — Metro Vancouver or Langley Township council.
“We would rather Langley make the decisions,” said Councillor Steve Ferguson. This conflict of Metro versus municipality came up with the university district proposed for property owned by and neighbouring Trinity Western University. The Township favoured the concept and adopted it while Metro attempted to refuse it — even threatening legal action to block it. Metro, which has already threatened legal action, says the plan to intensively develop outside the growth strategy’s urban containment boundary means the Township would have to table a new regional context statement and possibly also propose an amendment to the growth strategy — both of which would submit the plan to a vote of the Metro board. The Township’s position is that it is not yet subject to the new growth strategy because of a two-year transition period and can develop the lands without Metro approval, since the rezoning already has conditional approval of the Agricultural Land Commission. Council cautioned on making any large zoning changes, because once that is put into the OCP, it would take a two-thirds majority vote from Metro to change it. Bakken said the changes to the OCP are subtle but the unknown still lies in who will hold the power, Metro or Langley.
Thief swapped bike for Bobcat Aldergrove Star
KURT LANGMANN PHOTO
Aldergrove’s St. Dunstan’s Anglican Church was consecrated by the New Westminster Diocese clergy on Tuesday evening, June 18. The church was built to replace the original church which was destroyed by arsonists on 2001 but the consecration ceremony was postponed until this year to mark the repayment of all debts in its construction, nine years ago.
Langley RCMP is seeking the public’s assistance to recover a stolen Bobcat utility vehicle. The bobcat was stolen on June 22 at approximately 5:30 a.m. It is white with black trim and somewhat unique in that the cab has a full glass enclosure. A green Miele bike was left in the driveway of the property in the 500-block of 256 Street and may have been the thief ’s transportation. If you have any information that would assist police to locate the bobcat or identify the person(s) responsible for the theft, please call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.

Joanne Nicolato of the Aldergrove Recreation and Pool Society tried to convince Langley Township council to build a bigger pool in the new recreation centre at the Monday June 24 meeting. She was partially successful. A majority of council endorsed a six-lane pool instead of the four proposed in a report to council. But it was still far short of the eight lanes the society was seeking.
Pool moves ahead FROM FRONT:
“Saying yes to a larger pool is saying no to to something else, either in this facility or elsewhere in the Township,” Froese said. Councillor Kim Richter said council should build the eight lanes the community wants. “It’s Aldergrove’s turn,” she said, drawing applause from the pool society delegation, but no votes from the rest of council. Councillor Bob Long suggested a compromise that would build five lanes instead of four, but that idea found no support, either. In the end, the majority of council voted for six lanes. Richter was the lone vote against. Councillor Grant Ward was absent from the Monday meeting. A conciliatory statement posted online at http://aldergrovereccenter.ca by the society following the meeting called the decision a “fair compromise.” “This is not the grand scale that we had hoped to get, but with the vision of making this a facility that will wow people who come here, [the decision] enables us to hold our heads high and be proud of what we have achieved here,” the statement added. If everything goes according to plan, the new facility could open by 2015. Langley Township council earlier approved a controversial sale of Township-owned land in Glen Valley to help fund the new community centre, swimming pool and ice rink. While the Township waits for the sales, it will use money from surplus funds and reserves, as well as shortterm borrowing “of less than five years” to fund construction.
Restrictions enforced to protect east Langley water supply Aldergrove Star
In the summertime, it is tempting to keep cool by turning on the tap. But in eastern areas of Langley Township, water comes from groundwater that can potentially be depleted, and steps must be taken to preserve the resource for drinking and dealing with emergencies. Stage 3 water restrictions – including a ban on lawn sprinkling – have been declared by the Township of Langley’s General Manager of Engineering and Community Development. The restrictions will be in effect from July 1 to September 30 for residents on the municipal water system in Aldergrove, Gloucester, and Salmon River Uplands, which includes the Acadia and Tall Timbers water systems.
Serviced by the East Langley municipal water system, these areas rely solely on municipal wells that draw groundwater from local aquifers. Stage 3 water restrictions are proactively put in place to manage water usage in case the summer brings hot, dry weather. “Water usage doubles during the warm season and more groundwater is pumped from the aquifers than usual,” said Simon Tremblay of the Township’s Water Resources and Environment Department. “If too much water is extracted, levels may fall below well pumping levels and create a water shortage. Stage 3 restrictions are enforced during critical periods when rainfall is low and water demand is high, to help protect drinking water and maintain
supplies needed for emergency use.” Residents with private wells can also support conservation efforts by voluntarily complying with the water restrictions: “Everyone can do their part to reduce water usage,” Tremblay added. Construction recently started on the Township’s new East Langley Water Supply, which will pipe Metro Vancouver Water in to Aldergrove and Gloucester, providing a more dependable, sustainable, long-term water source. The project is expected to be up and running by next summer. Other areas serviced by the Township’s municipal water system receive a mix of groundwater and water from Metro Vancouver reservoirs, and are currently under Stage 1 water restrictions which regulate
lawn sprinkling days and hours. Water use restrictions are implemented through the Township’s Water Shortage Response Bylaw 2012 No. 4909. Non-compliance is subject to penalties. A map of the affected areas and additional information can be found on the Township’s website at tol.ca/ waterrestrictions. To report a water restriction violation or to have questions answered, call the Township’s Engineering Division at 604.532.7300. The following restrictions are in effect from July 1 to September 30 for municipal water users in east Langley (Aldergrove, Gloucester, Salmon River Uplands, Acadia, and Tall Timbers): • Lawn sprinkling is prohibited by homes and businesses.
• Residential and most commercial gardens, shrubs, trees, and flower beds may only be watered by hand, by containers, or through drip irrigation. “Soaker” hoses are not permitted. • Pressure washing is only allowed if the work is performed commercially and the purpose is for health, safety, or in preparation for painting or similar treatment. • Decorative fountains must be shut down. • Hand washing of vehicles is restricted to features required for safety (windows, lights, licenses), so long as an automatic shut-off device is used. • Filling and refilling of private, commercial, and public swimming pools, ponds, and hot tubs is prohibited.

Township restricts street donation bins By DAN FERGUSON Aldergrove Star
Charity drop boxes in Langley Township won’t be allowed on local roads without council approval. The new rule, adopted at the Monday afternoon ( June 10) council meeting, aims to enforce better maintenance of the bins used to collect donations of books, clothes and other items. Too many of them are allowed to get run-down and vandalized by the charities that own them, councillor Charlie Fox said. “They don’t do a particularly diligent job,” Fox said. The only councillor who voted
against the new rules was Kim Richter, who said she would prefer to ban them. “They’re not properly maintained,” Richter said. A Township list of donation bin locations shows 17 are operated by five charities through the community; the Autism Society of BC, Canadian Diabetes Association, Children’s Wish Foundation, Development Disabilities Association and Discovery Books. The new policy will require charities who want to place bins on a public roadside to pay the Township a security deposit “as required by the municipal engi-
neer” and carry out regular inspections. If a drop box has “become deteriorated, dilapidated” or constitutes a physical hazard or “has become unsightly” a bylaw officer will give the owner 48 hours to fix the problem or the Township may do it and deduct the cost from the security deposit. The requirement for council permission only applies to drop boxes left on public roads, not those on private property, which are covered under bylaws against untidy and unsightly properties. Township staff will contact the charities about the new rules before beginning enforcement.

VICTORIA – There are nine new faces in Premier Christy Clark’s cabinet, seven of them elected to the B.C. legislature for the first time on May 14. They have been handed some of the hottest problems, and Clark’s marching orders in “mandate letters” for each ministry. And this is the start of a four-year term, when unpopular reforms are attempted. Take Amrik Virk, the former RCMP inspector from Surrey who’s suddenly in charge of advanced education. His mandate includes: “Review the student loan program to make recommendations for improvement to ensure the loan program is meeting the needs of today’s students.” Virk must also set targets to “match the skills we need with the skills we are graduating” and require post-secondary schools to “ensure student seats are being filled.” B.C. can’t afford to keep cranking out university grads with $50,000 in debt and no job prospects in a system that’s subsidized 65 per cent. Virk will be working closely with Education Minister Peter Fassbender, who must “ensure seamless transitions” from high school to the workforce for post-secondary trades and apprenticeships. In his spare time, Fassbender is to overhaul the school district bargaining agency and achieve a 10-year peace with the teachers’

union. Justice Minister Suzanne Anton has worked as a Crown prosecutor, so she’ll have some insight into the system that still grapples with Stanley Cup rioters from two summers ago. Her orders are to get traffic tickets and other administrative penalties out of the courts, keep working on integrating police fiefdoms and generally treat the constipation that afflicts law enforcement today. Oh, and get that new Okanagan prison built, to relieve a system that has inmates living in tents. And examine whether to spin off the Liquor Distribution Branch into a Crown corporation, a possible prelude to selling it. Transportation Minister Todd Stone’s first test was a grilling by the Vancouver media. Yup, this Kamloops hayseed has been to the Big Smoke a few times, ridden that fancy SkyTrain and taken the odd ferry, too. Now he has to impose the ferry route reductions that have been worked on by two previous ministers, and push Metro Vancouver through a referendum on ways to fund its own transit. If more tolls or taxes are going to be implemented, now is the time. Coralee Oakes has made a political leap from Quesnel city hall to the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development. One of her key tasks is to invent a
framework for a “rural dividend” from liquefied natural gas development in northwestern B.C. Oakes has to figure out how to “better provide provincial support” to sport and cultural organizations, but do it with no new money. All ministers have strict instructions to balance their lean budgets and take part in the latest “core review” to identify government functions that can be sold, delegated or shut down. New Minister of International Trade Richmond’s Teresa Wat has to find a way to continue the growth of lumber and other exports to China, India and elsewhere on the Pacific Rim. On top of that, the alwaysdelicate softwood lumber agreement with the U.S. expires in three years. The last major eruption on that front was in 2009, when B.C. cut stumpage rates for remote coastal areas to give communities much-needed employment. The Americans were livid, just as they were with our beetle-kill harvesting efforts. And of course, the U.S.-directed environmental movement continues to target Canadian industries. Third-term MLA John Rustad gets aboriginal relations, with specific instructions to deal with gas and perhaps oil pipelines through his Nechako Lakes constituency.

Editor: I am a resident of Aldergrove and a member of the Bertrand Creek Enhancement Society. In last Thursday’s edition of the Langley Times and the Aldergrove Star an article was published regarding Aldergrove farmland eyed for townhouses. In this article, I was inaccurately quoted and portrayed as supporting a future development of single family homes on a piece of ALR farmland located at 3250 - 264 Street. I would like to clarify that I do not support this proposal, however, in the unfavorable event it were to be removed from the ALR, I would like to see the majority become parkland and only, if unavoidable, a small portion become single family homes. I would, however, prefer to see this property remain in the ALR. The main stem of Bertrand Creek and its tributaries flow through this property. Though the ALR designation does not protect the stream, the past farming activities on the property do not appear to have harmed Bertrand Creek and its tributaries as there are no impervious surfaces, and riparian (streamside) vegetation has been preserved. If the land is excluded from the ALR future land use on the property could have many detrimental effects on the stream. The property has not been designated for development according to the Aldergrove Community Plan. Removal of this land from the ALR would allow for future development that is not planned for the community. Also, the property is not central to Aldergrove and would not contribute to long term plans already being developed for downtown Aldergrove. The land is still arable and land that can be farmed must be preserved to ensure the food security of our region. Aerial photos of the property show the area appears to have good drainage and local knowledge of the area confirms the land drains well after rain events. The property provides a valuable buffer between the community of Aldergrove and the surrounding agricultural lands. Maintaining this buffer property within the ALR helps ensure the protection of the surrounding agricultural lands. Aldergrove has introduced a 40 year development plan of the downtown core. This plan will increase density and bring thousands of residents into the community. This should be the focus for future developments, not diminishing precious agricultural land reserves. Andrew Sigalet, Bertrand Creek Enhancement Society, Aldergrove
Horse owners should pay more in fees, taxes Editor: This is regarding a recent news article showing bylaw enforcement officer Simon Jottey next to a “No Dumping” sign. Why is it that horse owners aren’t brought into this mix? Some horse owners dump on public roads, not just on the sides, and they tend to think nothing of it. Horses are under the same bylaw as a dog but horse owners are beyond having a licence fee. There are roughly 6,000 horses in the Township. A licence fee similar to a dog’s would generate monies towards the $500,000 taxpayer-funded trail extension also referred to in a recent article. We the majority, over 100,000 strong, may not wish to subsidize these kinds of endeavours. I have looked into this so-called trail on many occasions and found barely a soul using it, let alone horses. So, to extend an under-utilized trail from 256 Street to Aldergrove Lake Park, in my opinion, is a total waste of taxpayers’ money. It also appears that the Back Country Horsemen have applied for a grant for gravel, so how much is the taxpayer paying for that additional grant? Unfortunately there isn’t one politician or would-be politician who will speak out on this horse issue. These horse owners have a lot of clout. They want to protect their low tax rates and, in some cases, obtain government grants. On a lighter note, it is nice to hear the Back Country Horsemen are helping to lay the gravel.

Enforcement of new regulations governing propane cannons in Langley Township is expected to begin the first week of July, following their final approval Monday afternoon ( June 24) by Langley Township council. The 7-1 vote came after the provincial Ministry of Agriculture reviewed and approved
the rules that will require larger setbacks and less frequent firing of the controversial bird scare devices used to protect berry crops. Councillor Kim Richter cast the only vote against the bylaws. Councillor Grant Ward, who did not attend the meeting, supported the measures in previous votes. There is nothing in the new bylaws about

Langley school maintenance workers mount picket campaign By FRANK BUCHOLTZ Aldergrove Star
Several protests outside the Langley School District board office this week have focused on the lack of contract negotiations between the district and local 1851 of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE). The union local represents janitors, trades people and other maintenance workers for the district. The workers were outside the board office on their lunch break Monday, June 17. About 30 people held signs and marched outside the building. Several motorists honked to encourage them. Richard Frost, local 1851 president,
said a similar protest took place Tuesday at noon and before the final board of education meeting of the school year on Tuesday night. He told Black Press that employees took a strike vote seven weeks ago, and have been without a contract since last year. Negotiations are “at an impasse,” he said. CUPE locals across B.C. have been upset that there have been virtually no movement on resolving contracts for school support staff. While local districts play a part in negotiations, the contracts also involve the B.C. Public School Employers Association, making the process more complex.
Propane cannon controls passed by Township council By DAN FERGUSON

banning the controversial cannons because the ministry, which has the final say on any farming regulations, made it clear that any attempt at imposing a ban or limiting loudness would be overturned under right-to-farm laws. The new Township bylaws reduce how often the cannons can be fired, allowing one firing every five minutes for a single cannon and no more than
33 shots an hour when more than one cannon is being fired by a berry farm. The bylaw sets escalating fines for violating the rules, $150 for a first offence, $350 for a second and $500 for a third and any subsequent offence. Farmers will also be required to get a $125-a-year licence to use cannons. The regulations
were drafted by the Propane Cannon Task Force, which was created in September by the municipal Agricultural Advisory Committee. During a public hearing in January, the task force heard from 25 speakers, all critical of blueberry cannons for disturbing residents and frightening horses. Most speakers demanded an outright ban of the cannons.

Relay for Life sets the pace By MONIQUE TAMMINGA Aldergrove Star
Record numbers turned out for the fight against cancer at the ninth annual Langley Relay for Life at McLeod Athletic Park on Friday night. In total, 94 teams registered, more than 900 stayed overnight, and $272,000 and counting was raised for the Canadian Cancer Society. “Everybody has their reason to Relay,” said Howie Vickberg, chair of the Relay organizing committee. Since joining the committee nine years ago, Vickberg said he went from having known one cousin many years ago die of Hodgkin’s disease to seeing many friends be diagnosed with cancer. Some have lost their lives, he said. But there are victories too. “We have a committee member who has survived pancreatic cancer,” he said. The highlight of this year was the large number of students involved in the relay. “Our relay is unique in that we have so much

For example, 10 teams registered from Brookswood Secondary. There were three teams registered from Glenwood Elementary, and they were the top fundraising school. That is mainly because students were inspired by fellow classmate — Grade 5 student Malcolm Shields, who was this year’s top fundraiser for Relay for Life. The 10-year-old raised $35,000 in honour of his six-year-old brother Jack,

I met him at the Relay and he is so poised,” Vickberg said. “Jack is going through treatment but the positive in this cancer fight is the prognosis is good.” Langley School District staff and school trustees also formed a team this year, in honour of Sandy Wakeling, communications manager,
who has had to take a leave of absence to battle cancer. The Relay went from 7 p.m. on Friday to 7 a.m. Saturday morning, with the goal to have someone from each team walking the track the entire time. Meanwhile, live music from Other Side of 5 and One Bullett Down played and for the first time screened an outdoor movie, “Back to the Future” provided entertainment for all.

‘Little Britches’ Riding to Victory
GARY AHUJA PHOTO
Jennifer (left) and Ashleigh King will both be going for the gold medal at next month’s Special Olympics BC Summer Games in Langley.
Sisters hoping to strike gold at Games By GARY AHUJA Aldergrove Star
If Special Olympics presented medals for talking, then twin sisters Jennifer and Ashleigh King would have to be considered the favourites for the gold medal in that event. No doubt about it, the twin sisters love to talk, with Jennifer the elder and louder of the two. And Special Olympics provides them a great avenue to do just that. “For them, it is social,” said Lesley Claxton, who works at Pacific Development Pathways, a local program HARRY HUNT PHOTO Katie Foss of Aldergrove competing in the junior girls’ barrel racing event at the 48th annual Little Britches Rodeo they attend in Langley. Pathways is designed for people with on the weekend.

both sisters will be going for gold as the Special Olympics BC Summer Games will be held in Langley. They are competing in the five-pin bowling competition. “I love bowling and hanging out with our friends at the bowling alley,” said Jennifer, who tends to dominate the conversation over her sister. “And getting snacks.” They bowl out of a league at Alder Alley in Aldergrove. This won’t be their first time competing at a provincial Games competition. Both sisters have silver medals from soccer while Ashleigh — the younger one — also has a bronze medal from baseball. They are thrilled to get the chance to compete at home in Langley, in front of their friends and family. But make no mistake, they may love each other dearly and be best friends, but there is also a fierce competitiveness between the pair, whether it be about what to watch on TV, who gets the remote, or who answers a question first. They are also sad when separated, as Claxton found out when Jennifer was gone for a month following surgery. “Ashleigh was a mess,” she said. “I missed when she is not around the house,” Ashleigh said. “It was quiet. “But I did get the TV,” she added. Claxton notices a change in the two when Special Olympics is on a break during the summer. The sisters — who graduated from Aldergrove Community Secondary School in 2005 — started living with Claxton when their mom was moving to Chilliwack. “It just came the time,” Kobler said. “They wanted a little more independence, but were not able to live on their own.” The sisters still see both their parents — who are separated — on weekends and summer camping trips. And living with Claxton, her husband and three sons, the sisters are just part of the family, complete with chores. “We have our fights, every family does,” Claxton said. “But we love having them around.” They both also hold part-time jobs in Langley.

4H readies for fairs
CELEBRATE. INSPIRE.YOUTH. WOMEN’S INTERNATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP
July 12 - 22, 2013
By JULIA KLASSEN and GABRIELA SAUER Aldergrove Star
Langley 4H Beef and Swine Club is almost halfway through their 4H year. We have completed our communications projects, with numerous successful members competing in the District and Regional levels. We do communication projects such as demonstrations, speeches, educational displays and speak and shows, where we present various topics such as healthy lunches, charlie’s tree, the ultimate snack and flower arrangements. The end of April was the beginning for our swine projects. We all utilized our knowledge on choosing an excellent market hog for this year. It has been just over two months and the pigs have already grown extremely noticeably in size. Just recently, a judging rally occurred in which junior and senior members of the Langley District gathered at Aldor Acres and judged steers, swine, agility dogs, kitchen towels and laying hens. On behalf of most members, we would have to say that laying hens were the most difficult. After the judging rally, there was a Camp held for junior members. It was a fun-filled evening with a version of Amazing Race, a nature’s walk through the back forest, campfire and even a camp over. Coming up will be our mini-show at the end of June, where we will practice showing our beef and swine and have a feel for what the fairs will be like for our new members.
