Legal grow-op likely target of home invasion MONIQUE TAMMINGA Times Reporter

A 32-year-old Langley man remains behind bars following a violent home invasion on Thursday, June 27. The victimized woman will soon be without a home. Around 1 p.m., Langley RCMP responded to a 911 call from a 56-year-old woman who had been attacked, tied up and put in a room by several men who broke into her home in the 24900 block of 72 Avenue. Officers arrived to find two vehicles were parked in the driveway with the doors open, said Cpl. Holly Marks.  Officers found the sliding door to the residence had been broken open. One of the responding officers saw a man wearing a black hoodie and a bandana covering his face. Upon seeing the officer, he ran back into the house.  With her hands still tied, the victim then came out of her home, telling police three or four men were inside, two with their faces covered. Some had weapons.  She told police that when they entered her house, one of them hit her and tied her hands behind her back.  She was placed in a room alone and could hear the men scrambling through the house, said Marks. Langley RCMP quickly called in the Emergency Response Team to help. By then, the suspects had fled the house, said police. Air One took to the skies and officers spotted a man running down the train tracks near the property. ERT arrested him a short time later. continued, PAGE 6

Families were peacefully enjoying the McLeod Park Canada Day celebration on Monday. But once darkness fell, drunken rowdies got into a brawl that saw Langley RCMP call in assistance from Surrey. More photos of local celebrations can be found on page 17 and online at langleytimes.com.

Canada Day party ends in brawl MONIQUE TAMMINGA Times Reporter

A drunken brawl involving around 100 people at McLeod Athletic Park disrupted what had been a hugely successful Langley Canada Day event on Monday evening. Police and other emergency officials were called in as about 100 young people, many of whom were drunk, became involved in a series of altercations just before the fireworks were set to go off. Those in attendance were wondering what the problem was, and some people left early because of the difficulties. The fireworks display that ends Canada Day was set off, but was delayed because of the brawl and subsequent police action. Langley RCMP called Surrey RCMP in for backup, due to the number of people involved. Officers arrived to find several individuals already handcuffed, however there was still a fair number of individuals yelling, swearing and fighting, said Langley RCMP Cpl.

Holly Marks.  “Officers were jumping from one fight to another,” said Marks. Several intoxicated people were put in cells at the Langley detachment and spent the night sobering up.  Most of these individuals were known to police, said Marks. Some of the involved combatants sustained minor injuries, however given the number of people involved, nobody was badly hurt. Other Holly than a set of broken Marks glasses, no officers were injured during the fracas, said Marks. However, she said police don’t anticipate laying any charges from the melee. It was too difficult with the large number of people involved. There is no beer garden at the festivities and organizers had security at the two

GIA CERTIFIED

gates from opening until closing, checking people’s bags and confiscating liquor if there was any. The celebration was fenced off on all sides for added security. Marks said police aren’t aware of how these brawlers arrived, or whether they attended already drunk or snuck alcohol in. She didn’t have reports of whether police were dumping out or confiscating alcohol. She said Langley RCMP had a command unit set up inside the festivities all day as well as auxiliary police and general duty officers working there. Langley’s Supt. Derek Cooke attended the celebration with his family but quickly became involved as an officer and assisted the uniformed police with arrests.  “A number of families left in advance of the fireworks to avoid the situation.  It’s unfortunate that there are a number of youth whose behaviour spoiled what should be a family event.”

Police seek assistance in capturing bearded rapist MONIQUE TAMMINGA Times Reporter

Nearly two weeks ago, a 16-year-old Langley girl was forced into a vehicle and sexually assaulted at knifepoint. Langley RCMP are just now releasing this information, along with a composite sketch of the suspect, in hopes it will lead to his arrest.  On Saturday, June 22, at approximately 12:15 p.m., the teenage girl was waiting for a bus at the intersection of 42 Avenue and 204 Street.  The suspect pulled up in a silver hatchback and ordered her to get in. She was terrified and did as he said, said Langley RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks. Once inside the vehicle, he produced a large knife, she told police. He drove her to the Christian Life Assembly parking lot in the 21200 block of 56 Avenue where she was sexually assaulted. He then drove her to the Langley bus loop at Logan and Glover and released

her without further incident. The suspect is described as Caucasian, 50 years old, six feet tall, heavy build, balding with grey/ blonde hair, pale blue eyes, a full beard and wearing blue/grey shirt and pants, and sunglasses. He was driving a small, newer model, silver hatchback.  The victim has subsequently worked with a sketch artist and a composite has been rendered. This sexual assault is an isolated case so far, said Marks. There haven’t been any other sexual assaults or attempted sexual assaults in Langley like this in recent months, she said. Langley RCMP is asking the public to study the composite sketch created and if you are able to identify the suspect or provide information that would assist with this investigation; call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

Police sketch of suspect

Jose Figueroa appeals to the minister MONIQUE TAMMINGA Times Reporter

He’s a working husband, father to three loving children, contributor to the community, long-standing member of his Langley church . . . and a threat to national security. That’s what the Canadian government has told Jose Figueroa. The government wants him deported back to his home country of El Salvador. Recent decisions by Immigration Canada have denied him permanent residency status and so now he has found a legal plea, which he made to the Minister of Public Safety last month. “This application is based on a section of the law that allows an entity claiming not to be in the list to apply to the minister of public safety for a certificate where the minister would state that the applicant in not listed,” said Figueroa. In layman’s terms, it means he could re-apply for resident status with a certificate saying he isn’t on a security threat list for this country. The law also establishes that the minister must respond within 15 days after

the application was made. It was mailed June 3 and a reply was expected Tuesday but didn’t come, he said. For so many in Langley, as shown by the large turnout to support him last month, Figueroa is the type of person who should be accepted as a Canadian citizen. When he came to Canada, he went about it honestly, applying for refugee status when he arrived at the border in 1997. He has lived in Langley for 16 years, with all three of his children born at Langley Memorial Hospital. But his involvement as a student in El Salvador with the left-wing Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front (FMLN) during the civil war is what has caused him all this grief. Since elements of the FMLN were linked to violent acts during the fight to overthrow a government that was committing genocide at the time, that was enough to exclude Figueroa under broad new anti-terrorism guidelines imposed in the wake of the 9/11 tragedy. Figuereroa has ran a very public campaign to fight the ruling to deport him and has found support from around the world and from Langley MP Mark Warawa and other federal ministers. Two

weeks ago, Newton-North Delta NDP MP Jinny Sims, immigration opposition critic, presented petitions in Parliament and brought Figueroa’s case up in question period. His role with the FMLN was never violent and Immigration Canada recognizes that. He and his wife applied for permanent residence status in 2002, under compassionate and humanitarian grounds. In April, 11 years after they applied, Immigration Canada responded, denying him permanent residence status. The refusal has been a huge blow for the Figueroas. “We are stressed, the whole family is stressed,” he said. The immigration case manager not only denied him permanent residency but went further and denied him temporary status, should he try and request that, which he hasn’t. Karine Roy-Tremblay, Immigration Canada’s director of case determination, said it was perfectly reasonable for him to be able to parent his children from El Salvador, saying that his wife could bring the kids there for visits. continued, PAGE 7

Woman killed in ATV crash A Langley woman was killed on Saturday in an ATV accident east of Hope. On June 29, at approximately 9:47 p.m., Hope RCMP, Fraser Valley Traffic Services, ICARS, and Sunshine Valley Volunteer Firefighters responded to an ATV collision on Huckleberry Road in Sunshine Valley, which is located along Highway 3, east of Hope. The ATV was operated by a 27-year-old woman from Langley, and was also transporting a 37-year-old male passenger from Surrey. The operator and passenger collided with a cable with reflective tape on it that was strung across a gravel road between two cement barriers. Witnesses on scene heard a loud bang and noticed an ATV roll into the bushes with no persons aboard. They did not observe the collision. The witnesses rushed over to find a man and a woman lying on the ground. An off-duty firefighter provided medical assistance, but the woman soon succumbed to her injuries. The man was transported to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The investigation is still ongoing.

Gas leak at City business Employees at a manufacturing and truck repair facility in Langley City were evacuated after a gas leak on Tuesday morning. Langley City fire and rescue was called to the scene at Nahanni Industries, 20141 Logan Avenue, with a report of a leaking MAPP gas cylinder. Protective water screens were deployed by the fire department.

Rare July meeting A special meeting of the Langley Board of Education was held on Tuesday night to address two outstanding policy changes. There were small amendments to the purchasing policy, administrative procedure and signing authority, said Laurie Mason, executive assistant to the secretary treasurer. She said the last board meeting agenda in June was too full to address these items, but they needed to be dealt with because they have a timeline. The next board of education meeting will be held on Sept. 24.

WGSS Grade 12 student Jamie Violpe stands beside her contribution to the salmon mural unveiled on the West Mundy Creek bridge behind the high school. Art students, with help from the Townhship, the Yorkson Watershed Stewardship committee and teacher Scott Gordon spent months working on the mural. Monique TAMMINGA/ Langley Times

Bridge mural fulfills 12-year-old dream MONIQUE TAMMINGA Times Reporter

It has been in the works for 12 years. Finally, on June 27, a mural on the West Mundi Creek footbridge was unveiled. It’s a mural honouring salmon and the precious ecosystem underneath the bridge. Art students at Walnut Grove Secondary, along with their teacher Scott Gordon, unveiled the work, which stretches along the railing portion of the bridge, located behind the school’s oval track. “We wanted to raise awareness for the people that walk across the bridge. They don’t realize that below there is a living breathing organism,” said Gordon on Thursday. School district administration, the school principal, Township councillors and other community groups were on hand for the unveiling. Gordon explained that the students were given free rein to create whatever they wanted using different kinds of mediums on 12 by 12 inch canvases. Those paintings, once complete, were scanned and digitally printed as vinyl wraps ready to be installed on the bridge.

For Grade 12 student Jamie Violpe, who painted several salmon in a row for her contribution, it is a nice legacy to leave behind. “We are really happy with it,” she said. The mural idea actually came from former teacher Susan Kovach, who died of brain cancer several years ago. “Susan approached me 12 years ago about a mural on the bridge but at the time, the Township felt there would be too much vandalism,” said Gordon. Now the plastic wrap technology used can stand up better. Kovach’s mom and sister were there for the unveiling. “It’s a very lovely honour they bestowed upon her,” said Kovach’s mom Helen Brown. “She would have just loved it.” One of the art student’s painted a portrait of Kovach and that, and a write-up about her and the project, appears at the entrance of the mural. This was a joint project along with the Yorkson Watershed Stewardship Committee. Langley Township Parks supported the project and Langley Environmental Partners has also assisted.

Victim’s home being foreclosed Home Invasion, from PAGE 1

Police seized the two vehicles found in the driveway. The victim had lived in the house for nine years, many of those by herself after her husband became ill and had to be moved to a care facility. She rented the barn and garage on the property to tenants cultivating a fairly large legal medicinal marijuana grow operation, said police.  “Sadly, she will lose the

property to a foreclosure and the mortgage company has now evicted the tenants,” said Marks. The medicinal grow-op had been removed on June 22 and 23, prior to this attack. Police believe the suspects were looking for the grow operation or cash revenue from it. Derek Allenby, 32, has been charged with forcible confinement, break and enter, assault and several breach charges. 

He has been remanded in custody and will next appear in Surrey Provincial Court on July 5. Allenby is a career criminal who has committed dozens of crimes over the past decade. As recent as May 6, he was arrested in Langley, charged with break and enter, theft over $5,000 and possession of property obtained through crime. He was released that day on $200 bail.

Committee will work to keep event safe Canada Day, from PAGE 1

Langley Canada Day organizing committee chair Travis Strain said his group will plan on debriefing with the police and fixing whatever needs to be fixed to keep the event a safe environment for families. “At the end of the day, we want this to be a safe, family event so we will do whatever it takes to make sure that happens,” said Strain. He had heard there was a few young men who arrived for the evening with the intent on starting fights. “It’s unfortunate these people ruined that portion of the event for everyone else,” he said. He has spoken with security, and they said they dumped out very little to no liquor, indicating many were aware of the no alcohol rules. A

portion of the fence was cut and Strain himself found it and sat there for two hours to make sure no one breached that spot. “It’s hard to say if that is where they came from,” he said. Strain has been heading the committee for three years and in that time only one small fight has taken place. More than 45,000 people took in the Langley festivities this year. The main stage and the local talent was a big hit, he said. The dog show, as per usual, also proved popular. Many people have been messaging on social media how much fun they had at Canada Day. There were no problems at the Canada Day festivities in Cloverdale which saw around 75,000 people attend. There were also Canada Day events at Fort Langley.

Immigration decision protested

She also suggested he could parent through Skype-type technology using a computer. “This, she said, would be in the best interest of my children? And how would we afford to fly my family to El Salvador?” Information Roy-Tremblay used was outdated, he said. The report she based her decision on said his mother lived in the U.S. She passed away in 2010. Of his three children, Jose Ivan is 16, Esmeralda is nine and Ruby is six. Jose Ivan was diagnosed with autism in 2002. His wife quit working then, dedicating her time to supporting her son. Jose pleaded that his son would not do well at all living without his father. Roy-Tremblay felt Jose Jr. would “continue to progress and succeed” just fine if Jose was deported. She goes on to blame their impending family separation on the “personal choices that were made by Mr. Figueroa in his past.” “Balancing against the best interests of the children and Mr. Figueroa’s establishment in Canada, I give significant weight to the government of Canada’s commitment to not provide safe-haven for those who have been members of terrorist organizations,” she wrote. The legal bills are mounting, and once most of this push is through, their fees will topple $28,000. It’s money the family just doesn’t have. His church and members of the We Are Jose group held a well-attended fundraiser for him at the Walnut Grove Lutheran Church on May 25. More than 140 turned out and nearly $2,000 was raised. Across the country, singer/songwriter Robert Graham hosted another fundraising event for Figueroa in Toronto. He also wrote a song about his plight.

Congratulations to El Fedewich 35 years as a Notary Public in Cloverdale

El became a BC notary in 1978 and opened up his office in downtown Cloverdale. After a hectic 17 year career in the finance business, which took him away from his young family having to travel to many offices across Western Canada (before fax, cell phones, etc.) El found Cloverdale to be ideal as it reminded him of the small town of Strathmore, Alberta, where he spent his childhood. For 35 years, El has provided the community with legal services for real estate transfers, preparing mortgages (previous mortgage lending experience proved very helpful), wills, power of attorney, and a host of other legal services. El’s strong involvement in the affairs of Cloverdale made him well known. Some of his community involvement included, Secretary-Clerk of the Surrey Dyking District, Director of Zion Park Manor, Kinsmen Club; a member of the Royal Canadian Legion, Ducks Unlimited (conservation), Director of the BC Notary Society, and more. El is a people person and his love of his work and the community make it difficult to quit. El works alongside his daughter, Trish Fedewich and her husband, Norman Witt, who are also BC notaries.

THEY SAY

Boost in security

Much to celebrate

N

ews of a terrorism plot involving the B.C. legislature and pressure cookers filled with nails has sent shock waves through the province, and nowhere is the news hitting with more impact than in Victoria, where the iconic Parliament Buildings draw tourists year round. A Canada Day event there on Monday (the event the terrorists were targeting) attracted about 40,000 people to the legislative lawns. B.C. residents may say “it can’t happen here,” but it can and it does. People in Boston likely felt much the same about the Boston Marathon, before the bombing incident this year, which apparently inspired the B.C. couple alleged to be at the centre of this plot. Whether inspired by religion, politics or just mischief, acts of terror are on the rise in North America. Since the infamous acts of Sept. 11, 2001, a host of plots have been uncovered and several attacks, such as the Boston one, have actually been carried out. Three people were killed and 170 injured in Boston. This has led to a dramatic increase in security at the borders and airports, in particular, but also at large public events such as the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. The original budget for security at the Olympics was projected at $175 million. The actual cost was $900 million. Events such as Canada Day celebrations have not been seen as likely targets for acts of terror, but they do attract large crowds. Here in Langley, where drunken revellers disrupted the tail end of what was an otherwise excellent and successful event, there are often as many as 30,000 people at the event. The Canada Day event in Cloverdale, the main Surrey event, has attracted as many as 100,000 people. The downtown Vancouver event is also a large one. Security has usually been pretty straightforward at such events. But it seems likely it will have to be boosted in the future, whether to ensure that wannabe terrorists have no chance to get near an event, or drunken partiers are barred from the grounds. The Langley Canada Day event did have limited points of entry and security at the gate, and searches of backpacks and purses took place. Yet somehow, the revellers made their way onto the grounds and spoiled what was a fun party for many. We may not want more security, but as citizens we appreciate extra efforts to make us safe.

his past long weekend, Canadians coast to coast celebrated the 146th anniversary of our nation’s founding. There is much to celebrate. Earlier this year, Canada was ranked the third-best country to live in by the Organization for Economic Cooperation (OECD). By any yardstick you choose, Canadians enjoy a standard of life far above that of the rest of the world. To understand how good we have it, talk to one of the seven million Canadians who immigrated from around the world. For them, being a part of this great nation was a choice. It brought hardship, but also great reward. Canada has always been an immigrant nation. The first people to settle in what we now know as Canada came not on a boat, but via the Bering Sea land bridge. The French and English were the first European immigrants to arrive on our shores in the 1500s. By the late 1800s, Eastern Europeans were recruited to help expand Canada westward across the Prairies. As B.C. established Canada’s presence on the Pacific Rim, so, too, has it opened its doors to Asian immigration. It hasn’t always been an easy transition, however. In the past, when cultures clashed in Canada, what resulted was unjust and often violent. It’s important to celebrate the great achievements of the past, but equally important to remember the many dark chapters in our history, so that we learn from them and ensure they are never repeated. Episodes such as the the Chinese head tax, the Komagata Maru incident, the residential school system and the shameful confiscation of property of Japanese-Canadian internees during the Second World War still resound today. Today, as always, Canada is a nation of immigrants. It is what makes us unique, and what makes us great. Each culture adds to Canadian society and to the Canadian identity. And we are all the better for it. —Peace Arch News The Langley Times is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry.

Langley Times

Old Yale paving stonewalled Editor: “Old Yale debate continues” is the headline on an article in The Times, published June 20. Back on July 24, 2012, the headline on a story published in your newspaper was “Council debates future of Old Yale Road.” Debate is not the right word for this issue. Stonewalling seems more appropriate. Councillor Grant Ward is right in his assessment that “Anything that’s old is going to cost money.” The issue is old and so are the attitudes of some councillors. Old should not be a cost to the taxpayer. Old Yale Road from the City of

Langley border to the Five Corners at Murrayville is a terrible road and needs to be resurfaced. Do it now. Do not spend $100,000 or $150,000 to study the issue, just do it. And if they have to spend $300,000 to do an engineering design report, that is also ridiculous. The public is being misled. Old Yale Road from the City of Langley border to the Five Corners is one kilometre long, not the two to three kilometres that Township engineering director Ramin Sefi is quoted as saying. If he is the engineering director for the Township and he doesn’t know

the distance of the road, he is the wrong person to be advising council. Furthermore, the argument that paving the road will make Old Yale a speedway is deceptive. There are no shoulders on the road. Saying this is also deceptive. People walk, bicycle, trot, and push baby strollers on the side of the road everyday. Get the equipment out and resurface the road now. If it costs $1 million to pave one kilometre of road, that section of Old Yale is one kilometre long, so it should cost $1 million. Rian Martin, Langley

Speed bumps don’t belong on major roads Editor: This is in response to the Langley Township initiative to implement traffic calming measures on 212 Street and Walnut Grove Drive. I travel that road often and slow down to or below the posted speed limit, and have not witnessed any gross violations in that area during the days when school is in session. I am totally and strongly opposed to the idea of speed bumps on main roads. They are a nuisance and very upsetting to a peaceful drive on any road. This is not a parking lot. Schools are in session five days a

week, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. from September to June, excluding all holidays and two months summer vacations. Why would anyone in their right mind entertain such a crazy idea of speed bumps on that road for people to navigate over, not only during the times when schools are in session, but all the rest of the time? They will be in place night and day, when there is no excuse to have such obnoxious bumps on the road. I recall one fellow in Vancouver who suggested that school speed signs should be observed 12 months of the

year. Obviously it too was a stupid suggestion and was rejected, as the proposed traffic calming measure here in Langley should also be. Surely there are much better ways to spend money than putting mounds of pavement on a main thoroughfare road. An unmarked or markd police car would have a definite effect in calming the traffic during the times when school is in session, without any further discomfort to those who drive that road. Ernie Mason, Langley

Cuts in drug coverage are unacceptable Editor: I have sent the followng letter to Premier Christy Clark. Welcome to the B.C. government’s top position: Premier. How fortunate to be able to come in after the election and start out the day with a huge raise for your people. It must feel good to be able to rule and preside over the taxes that we are paying to keep you in a higher income bracket than the rest of us. I went to get my prescription filled on June 28. What a shock it was to find out that neither Blue Cross nor Pharmacare will no longer pay for my medication. I use asthma medications, and this year when the allergies have been so bad, I almost had to be hospitalized due to the asthma. Cutting coverage of these drugs was not a great idea. Blood pressure medications? Cutting these is just plain ugly, because you and your people have surely caused a lot of the high spikes in my blood pressure of late. The

Sleeping pills — well I guess I will just stay awake and worry about where the money is coming from to pay my bills, since this was why I got the pills in the first place. Your predecessor Gordon Campbell took away my job and my $30,000 a year wages. He took 15 per cent off my husband’s wages as well. This year, the Hospital Employees Union finally negotiated a raise, after 10 years. And then we find this out. In health care facilities, the unions have filed a grievance over implementation of Pharmacare tie-in. The Facilities Bargaining Association (FBA) is challenging the Health Employers Association of BC (HEABC) on elements of its implementation of the recently-negotiated Pharmacare tiein, which links members’ prescription drug coverage to the list of drugs covered by the government’s Pharmacare program. In negotiating the plan in the last

round of collective bargaining, health unions agreed to a list of Pharmacare drugs, based on confirmation that certain specific drugs would continue to be eligible for reimbursement. But now Pacific Blue Cross is advising some members that they are not covered for these drugs. HEABC has also advised the FBA that members will be reimbursed for drugs, only to a price limit set up under the Pharmacare program. The FBA unions did not agree to those restrictions, and have filed an industry-wide policy grievance to challenge them. The government sure knows how to make us little people feel minute and unimportant. Thank you from a former low middle-class income human, who is now a below the poverty line human. By the way, I did not vote for you. Hanne Reid, Aldergrove

Water restrictions are quite limited Editor: All Langley citizens received the terse orders regarding the watering of our lawns. Watering is permitted at even-numbered homes on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday, between 4 and 9 a.m. For odd-numbered houses, the same time restrictions apply, but the days permitted are Sunday, Thursdays and Sundays. I presume this is to save water. Why then are there no restrictions placed upon pressure washing? Irrespective of hours, days or house numbers, the pressure washing is evident, as cars, trucks, houses and driveways are washed with gallons of water. Not that I have anything against cleanliness, but doesn’t this practice nullify the restrictions on water usage? Mike Harvey, Langley

McGregor column slammed by reader Editor: I would like to ask a question to the editor. Were you missing the day the article or “opinion” from Jim McGregor (The Times, June 27) came across your desk? There seriously can not be anything as sexist as what I read in that article. And I honestly can’t believe that in this day and age, when we’re supposed to be even just politically correct and conscientious of our attitudes, that a newspaper would actually condone the writing an article that, from everything I read, should not be anywhere but in a newspaper in the 1800s. Explaining that women have the role of picking curtains and paint, seriously? Let me tell you something. I have never picked paint or curtains. I have, however, rebuilt three different vehicles, engines, and various other parts of my cars. I have, without the help of a man mind you, bought more than my share of vehicles. Comments like McGregor’s only serve to make it possible for men to condone keeping the “woman are barefoot and pregnant” ideals that should have left with the last century.

Less scrutiny in the summer C all it the Beach Blanket Budget. Despite having to campaign once again to win a seat in a byelection, Premier Christy Clark has ordered the legislature to sit without her through most of July to pass the budget that was tabled before the election. This rare summer session ensures a couple of things. First, there will be less time for real financial

results to contradict the rosy predictions made by Finance Minister Mike de Jong in February. Second, it ensures that there will be minimum public attention paid to the deliberations, as people focus on their summer vacations and put the business of running the province aside again.

That’s the difference between her “core review” of government programs and the one conducted by Campbell in the painful first years of his mandate. This is why I mentioned last week that one of the more significant instructions given to Clark’s cabinet ministers was to examine turning the Liquor Distribution Branch into a separate corporation with its own board of directors. That in itself may slightly increase the size of government. But it could be a preliminary step to selling the whole thing off and reducing the government’s role to taxing and regulating booze sales. You can imagine how that would go over with the NDP, with former liquor store union boss George Heyman among the loudest opposition MLAs. This is the kind of change that should be debated in public, not by press release. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com tfletcher@ blackpress.ca

Community consultation will be held at historic Fort Langley The Royal BC Museum is embarking on a journey of change and wants B.C. residents to be part of its future. Consultation events are underway, and one of them takes place in Fort Langley on Monday. For more than 125 years, the Royal BC Museum has looked to preserve, explain and celebrate B.C.’s heritage. Located in the province’s capital, the Royal BC Museum’s striking mix of natural history and social history enables it to tell the widest possible range of stories: of land and people, of place and movement. It receives more than 350,000 visits each year, showcasing an extensive collection that includes seven million objects

will include improving the entrance experience for visitors, refreshing and enhancing the exhibition space, and safeguarding its archives and collections. Feedback received at the consultations and subsequent meetings and sessions throughout the province will inform plans for the revitalized Royal BC Museum. The Fort Langley community consultation event takes place from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, July 8 in the theatre at Fort Langley National Historic Park, 23422 Mavis Ave. B.C. residents can also have their say online at www.royalbcmuseum.bc.ca/vision and can join the discussion on Facebook and on Twitter using #NewRBCM.

Stats show car still king for Metro Vancouver commuters JEFF NAGEL Black Press

Metro Vancouverites have Canada’s fourth longest commute to work at an average of 28.4 minutes, according to new data released by Statistics Canada. Maple Ridge workers have it worst, battling traffic for an average of 35.2 minutes, while the commute is as much as 33 minutes in the Tri Cities and 31 minutes in Surrey. The numbers were contained in the voluntary long-form National Household Survey conducted as part of the 2011 Census. The region’s shortest commute was 24.3 minutes in North Vancouver City, where residents spend even less time getting to work than Vancouverites, who average 25.4 minutes. Metro commuters overwhelmingly commuted by private vehicle — 70.7 per cent — but that’s down from 74.4 per cent in 2006.

Car pooling remains infrequent, with less than five per cent of commuters saying they were passengers in private vehicles. Public transit use was 19.7 per cent in Metro Vancouver, behind Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa-Gatineau, which had transit usage rates of 20 to 23 per cent. Transit ridership was up from 16.5 per cent reported in 2006. Broken down between travel mode, the findings show Metro commuters spent much longer getting to work if they took public transit – one possible reason why many still prefer to drive. The average transit rider here commuted for 40.9 minutes compared to 26.4 minutes for motorists in private vehicles. Walkers averaged a 14.4-minute stroll to work while cyclists biked on average 23.8 minutes. TransLink hopes to eventually whittle the share of car trips in the region down to 50 per cent, while increasing the number of people who take transit, cycle or

walk. TransLink spokesman Derek Zabel said the Statistics Canada findings are consistent with TransLink data, particularly on the growth of public transit. “We are increasing our ridership,” he said. “We have seen an 84 per cent increase over the last decade, equal to 109 million more transit trips.” Transit trips also increased in the last year, he said, through more efficient use of existing resources, with no extra injection of money. Despite a huge push to add bike lanes, particularly in Vancouver, there’s little sign of cycling getting out of first gear as a way of getting to work. Just 4.4 per cent pedalled to work in Vancouver, while cyclists made up just two per cent of commuters in North Vancouver, 1.3 per cent in flat Richmond and less than one per cent in most of the rest of the region. The car remains king in the AbbotsfordMission area, where 92.2 per cent of

workers commuted by private vehicles, just 2.5 per cent used public transit, 2.6 per cent walked and 0.8 per cent biked. The survey also found the City of Vancouver was the workplace of 36.1 per cent of commuters from Burnaby and 13.1 per cent of commuters living in Surrey.

BY THE NUMBERS:

• Vancouver – 25.4 minute average commute; transit use 30 per cent • Langley Township – 29 minute average commute; transit use 3.5 per cent • Surrey – 31 minute average commute; transit use 12.8 per cent • North Vancouver City – 24.3 minute average commute; transit use 22.8 per cent • Burnaby –  29.1 minute average commute; transit use 28.1 per cent • Richmond – 25.9 minute average commute; transit use 18 per cent • Maple Ridge – 35.2 minute average commute; transit use 9.5 per cent

Baby boomers driving Lower Mainland downsizing trend The baby boomers have long been the drivers of trends, and as they age they still make a difference. A new report from Colliers International, commissioned by HJ Properties, shows that many of that generation are considering their options regarding downsizing from their family homes. “The research really surprised me,” says Scott Brown, senior vice-president of residential and commercial marketing services at Colliers International Marketing. “I thought there would be a mass exodus to Kelowna, but that’s not happening.”

Instead, people looking to downsize in the Fraser Valley are considering how to stay in their neighbourhood, have money for retirement and help their children, all in one package. Projects such as HJ’s Waterstone in Langley are thus very appealing to downsizers, Brown says. With larger floorplans and plenty of amenities nearby, buyers of all ages are finding something to love about their new home. “Logic starts to win over magic,” Brown says. “People emotionally want to stay in a single-family home, but as the

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

baby boomers get older, they have different considerations.” One of the largest considerations is security, both of their property and themselves. “Having a neighbour looking out for you is important,” says Brown. “In a multi-family project, you don’t have as many worries.” The report showed that price was the biggest deciding factor for most baby boomers. “You can buy a multi-family home for about $400,000,” Brown says. “That doesn’t get you much in a single-family home.” Brown notes that he did see a difference in how buyers in the Fraser Valley were downsizing versus those in Vancouver itself, adding that Fraser Valley downsizers had retirement higher on their list of priorities. Another big reason the baby boomer generation is buying smaller homes? “I’ve been told that many people are moving into a multifamily home as a defence against their kids moving back in with them,” laughs Brown.

Morningstar home. “They feel more comfortable knowing that someone they know has had a good experience with us,” Calahan says. Partington is perfectly located on Burke Mountain. The neighbourhood has been growing over the years and now includes schools, parks and trails. It is also just a short drive to Coquitlam Town Centre for shopping and dining. You can also find leisure and recreation activities nearby. Sales of Partington will open on July 6 at noon. Interested buyers are encouraged to preregister for more information at www. morningstarhomes.bc.ca. Calahan notes that she’ll send registrants a sneak peek before the start of sales. The sales centre is located at 1508 Dayton Street in Coquitlam. For more information, visit the website or call 604-942-6370.

Partington showcases views on Burke Mountain By Kerry Vital

Morningstar Homes is once again at the top of their game with their latest project, Partington on Coquitlam’s Burke Mountain. “It’s really special up here,” says Deborah Calahan, vice-president of sales and marketing for Morningstar. “The views are pretty spectacular. It’s like being on top of the

world.” Partington is a collection of 45 singlefamily homes with spacious floorplans and luxurious finishings, including a truly massive kitchen with a granite island and tons of counter space. Hardwood flooring is included throughout the living areas, offset by the 19-foot vaulted ceiling, gorgeous floorto-ceiling linear fireplace and huge windows making the most of the views. “Our Partington homes were designed with incredible views in mind by making the windows the focal point of each home,” says Calahan. “We could not pass up the opportunity to show them off.” The four-bedroom homes are available in three different floorplans, ranging from 3,700 to 3,900 square feet. Each comes with an unfinished basement and a large private yard with a patio or deck. “We always strive to be innovative and offer our purchasers the best,” says Calahan.

“We never tire of trying to better our designs, with each new project being given its own consideration.” Partington is Morningstar’s eighth project on Burke Mountain, following the success of Kingston, Avondale, Somerton and many others. “We were the first to pioneer a community on Burke Mountain,” Calahan says. “They really welcomed us with open arms, and it’s now a highly sought-after place to live.” As the community grows, so does Morningstar’s reputation. “The Morningstar promise is to make everything as seamless as possible,” Calahan says. “Buying a house is one of the biggest purchases of your life. We want to make it as stress-free as we can.” She notes that they now get buyers preregistering who have heard about the homes through word-of-mouth from family and friends and who now want to live in their own

Mountain View Veterinary Hospital owner Dr. Renee Ferguson is excited to be back in Langley at her brand new veterinary practice. As a special welcoming treat she is offering free deworming and flea treatment to patients. because people come in and they are nervous, their pets are sometimes sick, so it’s important to me that they get treated properly. “That was one of the biggest things for why I wanted to open my own practice and have the quality equipment and the quality staff. And I think it can be done really well. That’s what I’m going to make myself do.” In addition to veterinary services, Mountain View also carries a full line of prescription pet foods and other medicines. And, as a special opening

offer, Dr. Ferguson is giving away free deworming and flee prevention for the summer. “We just want to offer really good patient care, good client communication, clients options and treat each pet as an individual,” Ferguson said. “Every household and every pet has different needs, and you can’t have a specific cookie cutter plan for each family and for each patient.

It didn’t take long for Dr. Renee Ferguson to realize that performing C-sections on cows in the middle of the night during the dead of winter in Manitoba was not a very glamorous reality for her veterinary dreams. The south Surrey native, who always longed to be a horse vet, had just finished veterinary school at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine and was starting out her career as a mixed animal vet. “I was always one of those girls that loved ponies and horses and I thought that I was going to be a horse vet initially, probably just like tons of other little girls,” Ferguson explained. “But horse vet is a tough life. “I kind of had this fantasy of James Herriot, but being from B.C., working in minus 40 degrees where you had to keep your truck running ... I was like, OK, this is not for me.” Fast forward 16 years and today Ferguson is back in B.C. as the proud owner of her own practice, Mountain View Veterinary Hospital, which opened two weeks ago at 13219653 Willowbrook Dr. The brand new small animal clinic deals with all needs for Langley’s cats, dogs, and other “pocket pets,” including examinations, vaccinations, dentistry, and small surgeries. Ferguson has also installed brand new state-of-the-art equipment, such as a dental X-ray machine and a top of the line anesthetic monitor to service her furry patients. “We have a high priority on patient care and we have a staff that has a lot of experience,” Ferguson said. “We focus on patient care and treating patients well,

“I have gotten to know a whole different community that most people aren’t priviliged to know.”

Nikki Anderson will compete in track and field at the Special Olympics BC Summer Games, which begin July 11 in Langley. The 36-year-old has competed in Special Olympics for 24 years.

Olympics BC Summer Games get underway in Langley. The Games run July 11 to 13. Nikki, whose sports include bowling, soccer, basketball, softball and curling, is competing in track and field at the Langley Games. “It is fun and I get to run around a lot,” she said, adding that her best event is the 400m. “I am pretty fast.” Anderson said Special Olympics is a perfect fit for her daughter, who is very active and loves to socialize. She holds a yearly Christmas party, as well as routinely hosting backyard campouts. “It has absolutely made a big difference in her life,” Anderson said. “We were so lucky to have found it at the age of 12.” Special Olympics has also been beneficial for Anderson. She used to coach in the organization, but has since stepped aside. She still volunteers, however. “I have been lucky enough to be around all of these guys,” she said. “I have gotten to know a whole different community that most people aren’t privileged to know.”

‘Opening night can’t get here quick enough’ GARY AHUJA Times Sports

The arena may be smaller than that of some of their competitors, but that makes little difference to the players as they get set to call the 5,200-seat Langley Events Centre home for the foreseeable future. “Whether there is 5,000 seats or 10,000 seats, the floor is still the same size,” said Vancouver Stealth captain Kyle Sorensen. “There are two benches and 10 guys playing the game, so we still do our job as lacrosse players to get wins and that is what we are committed to doing.” Sorensen was speaking in a media scrum following the Stealth’s official press conference announcing their move across the border, from Everett, Wash. to the Langley Events Centre. The Stealth averaged just under 4,200 fans per game this past season, while the NLL average attendance was 9,662 per game. The move to Langley was announced last week (June 27).

The Stealth, under the same ownership group, management team and with the bulk of the same players, will begin the 2014 National Lacrosse League season at the LEC in January. The team has signed a five-year agreement to call the LEC home with the option of two five-year extensions. “This is a historic and exciting day, the NLL is back in British Columbia,” said league commissioner George Daniel, who was joined at the podium by Township Mayor Jack Froese, Stealth owner Denise Watkins, general manager and president Doug Locker, head coach Chris Hall and Sorensen. “B.C. is one of the great hotbeds of lacrosse in the world,” Daniel said, adding that the energy and spectacle of an NLL game is quite the event. “Opening night can’t get here quick enough.” Froese said having pro lacrosse in town will be a great benefit. “Not only will it provide some

exciting sport, but restaurants, hotels and other local destinations will be the benefactor,” he said. The nine-team league plays an 18-game schedule that starts in January. The Stealth become the fourth Canadian team, joining Calgary, Edmonton and Toronto.

Watkins, who has owned the team since 2007 with her husband Bill, said she is looking forward to a new era of lacrosse. While the team had a hardcore group of fans in Everett, that wasn’t enough to save the team. “It is great to come to a facility and an area where everyone clearly knows their lacrosse,” she said. “It will be great to have (full) houses and fans who have played lacrosse since sticks were put into their cradles at birth.” Head coach Chris Hall said

the team has phenomenal opportunities in their new home, especially since they will be just one of two teams in the league with their own dedicated practice facility so close to their home arena. It is currently under construction just behind the LEC. “(This) is going to present phenomenal opportunities for us a great base to train for all the players,” he said. “That is a very special thing.” He also said the organization is looking forward to working with community groups and the B.C. Lacrosse Association. “To help grow the game at the minor levels so we can continue to produce some of the best lacrosse players in the world,” Hall said. Two-thirds of the Stealth roster are from B.C. so the players are excited to play and practice closer to home. “I know it is going to make a lot of guys’ lives a lot easier, not to mention all the travel costs

associated with reimbursing people for gas and all that,” said Athan Iannucci, who plays in the winter for the Stealth and in the summer with another LEC team, the Western Lacrosse Association’s Langley Thunder. “(This move) just makes sense.” Players in the league hold down full-time jobs as well and most are forced to travel back and forth between where their jobs are and wherever they play in the NLL. Iannucci, who has also played for Philadelphia in the NLL, said it can be a challenge for players as they travel weekly to get to and from their home base, which he called both physically and mentally draining. ••••• Season tickets are now on sale for the Stealth and range from $21.56 per game to $41.56, which includes all taxes and service fees. Single games prices will be from $27 to $55. For tickets, call 604-455-8888 or visit www.langleyeventscentre. com.

Langley United ready for provincials GARY AHUJA Times Sports

The Langley United U13 soccer team is looking to add one more championship to the trophy case. The boys’ soccer team leaves for Prince George on July 3 to battle against seven other soccer clubs from around the province at the Les Sinnott Memorial Boys Provincial Cup. The tournament was formerly called the Provincial B Cup.

It runs July 4 to July 7. “The goal was to finish in the top three or four and make a run for the league Cup,” said coach Will Bailie. And the team did better than that, winning both the league title and the Cup title. Those titles gave them a berth in the Coastal Cup. They came up short for a third title.

From Aldergrove to Anaheim Islanders grab

Shea Theodore selected in first round by Ducks GARY AHUJA Times Sports

The Anaheim Ducks have called for Shea Theodore. The Duck selected the 17-year-old in the first round, 26th overall, in Sunday’s NHL Draft. “Shea is a great skater and can really move the puck,” said Bob Murray, Anaheim’s executive vice-president and general manager, on the team’s website. “The way the game is played now, that is really important.

“You need players like that.” Theodore, who played with the Aldergrove Minor Hockey Association, plays in the Western Hockey League with the Seattle Thunderbirds. Theodore, who turns 18 in August, had 19 goals and 50 points in 71 games for Seattle this past season. He also represented Canada at the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament and at the under-18 world championships, helping Canada win gold at both. He was ranked 11th heading into the draft among North American skaters. The Ducks used their first pick to grab him. “We love the way he thinks the game, his mobility and his ability to bring

offence from the point on the power play,” said Anaheim’s director of amateur scouting, Martin Madden. Theodore went right about where he thought he would. “I had a pretty good feeling I was going to go in that range, from what my agent had told me,” he said the team’s website. He attended the draft in New Jersey with his family. “I was a little jittery when (Anaheim) walked up to the stage, and they ended up picking me, so I’m very excited right now.” Theodore is currently in Anaheim with the team for their prospects’ development camp.

Kyle Burroughs chosen by New York Islanders

GARY AHUJA Times Sports

Too nervous to follow the NHL Draft at home, Kyle Burroughs was on the golf course with his father and a couple of friends when he found out the New York Islanders had selected him. The Islanders chose Burroughs — who turns 18 on July 12 — with their seventh round selection, 196th overall, at the NHL Draft on June 30 in New Jersey. Burroughs is a defenceman in the Western Hockey League with the Regina Pats. “I didn’t want to sit around waiting,” Burroughs said on Tuesday, a few days after the draft. “I thought it would be torture.” So Burroughs, two of his friends and his father, hit the links at Belmont Golf Course to help keep his mind off the draft. Of course, he was following the draft via the newsfeed and was on the 14th or 15th

Campbell drafted by Oilers

July - August

First-ever member of Langley Rivermen to be drafted by NHL junior A hockey club, putting up 20 goals and 46 assists in 51 games to finish second on the team in scoring. Rivermen head coach and general manager Bobby Henderson said Campbell’s combination of size, speed, grit, and skill is hard to pass up at the NHL level. “This is something Evan deserves and it is nice to see all the hard work he put into last season pay off,” said Henderson in the same press release. “Edmonton is an exciting destination for him as they have a lot of good young players on the roster and I believe he will make the most of the opportunity.” The 20-yearold was expected to arrive in Edmonton yesterday (Wednesday) for the team’s week-long development camp. Having studied

June 16

Evan Campbell had the quintessential Canada Day weekend: while enjoying a family barbecue on Sunday afternoon, he got the call that he had been drafted by the Edmonton Oilers. “It came as a complete shock to me, I really had no idea this was going to happen and it still hasn’t really sunk in,” said Campbell in a press release from the Langley Rivermen, the junior A hockey club which he played for the past two seasons. The 6’ 1”, 174pound left-winger was selected 128th overall in the fifth round of the National Hockey League entry draft in Newark, N.J. on Sunday. It marked the first time in franchise history that a Rivermen player was drafted into the NHL. Campbell is coming off a career year with Langley’s

the Oilers’ team these past few seasons, Campbell is confident Edmonton will be a solid training ground for him. “I think the Oilers’ franchise is going to be a powerhouse in the league for many years to come,” opined Campbell. “Just looking at some of the players they have on the team now, it only makes me want to work harder than I ever have before to try and crack the team and play with those guys one day.” Campbell singles out his family, saying their support is the reason he has made it this far in his hockey career. “My mom, uncle, and stepdad are huge reasons why this has all happened,” says Campbell. His future plans include attending the University of Massachusetts Lowell next season where he will play his freshman year with the River Hawks.

The Flippers Swim Club hosted the Langley Invitational Swim Meet over the Canada Day long weekend, while the club also celebrated its 50th anniversary.

The swim meet included 1,618 entries, 268 heats, and 120 relays. Maia Desmond-Murray placed second in the six-and-under 25m freestyle and second in the backstroke. Brayden Caldecoat swam to first in

CAR CARE & REPAIR

Healthy environment inside? Over the last several years, homeowners have increasingly emphasized clean air in their homes. The growing popularity of home air purifiers suggests today's homeowners want to make certain the environment inside their home is as healthy as possible. While protecting the environment in a home is important, it's equally as important for motorists to maintain a healthy environment in their vehicles. The average American spends roughly 10 to 15 hours per week inside a car, where dust, odors, smoke and other potentially sour smells can make riding in a car rather unpleasant. In addition, air pollution and allergens inside a vehicle can pose a significant health risk to drivers and their passengers. Fortunately, there are several steps drivers can take to maintain a healthy environment inside their vehicle. Improve air quality. Perhaps the best way drivers can ensure their passengers have a healthy environment while traveling in a car is to improve the air quality within the vehicle. You can use a clean air system kit to quickly and effectively purify the air inside a vehicle by eliminating harmful gases, dust, pollen, smoke, odors, and bacteria. Employing a 3-stage filtering process, the kit, which can be easily placed beneath a seat, in the rear of the vehicle or on a seatback, captures big particles, such as human hair and pet hair, during the

pre-filter stage before the HEPA filter removes these particles and others, including pollen and pet dander. In the final stage, the advanced HESA filter removes harmful gases and even bad odors, such as those caused by smoke, ensuring the vehicle's interior is not only healthy, but also pleasant for drivers and passengers alike. Clean the vehicle's interior. Many automobile owners pay particular attention to the appearance of their vehicle's exterior. However, those same drivers don't spend nearly as much time, if any, tending to the vehicle's interior. But a neglected interior doesn't just fall victim to spills and dirt or other particles brought in from the outside. Over time, a neglected interior might begin to grow mildew, which is both unhealthy and unpleasant. In general, clean the vehicle's interior once a month to prevent mildew growth and the buildup of dirt and grime. Don't fall in love with the "new car smell." Few consumers can resist the famed "new car smell." Though enticing, the new car smell is actually an outgassing of toxic chemicals from newly formed plastics, and the chemicals in these gases have been linked to birth defects, impaired learning, liver toxicity, premature births, and early puberty in laboratory animals. Though this doesn't mean consumers should avoid buying new cars, it

should inspire consumers to address the new car smell immediately. Using a HESA filter can easily and effectively remove the harmful gases that stem from the new car smell, while continuously removing additional odors as the car ages. Vacuum carpets, floor mats and between seats. Carpets and seating are another collection point for dirt and pollutants and need to be vacuumed thoroughly. Make sure to get the floor mats, the floor under the floor mats and all the way under the seats. Pound your seats with something large like a baseball bat to loosen and knock out all the dirt and soil that has settled into the creases and stitching. Protect newer vehicles on hot days. Hot weather can take its toll on drivers, and it can also wreak havoc on their vehicle's interior. Heat from the sun can cause the vehicle's plastics, vinyl or leather parts to emit volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, which, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, can produce both short-term and long-term adverse health effects. Whenever possible, park in the shade or use a sun shade on the windshield. In addition, slightly opening the windows in spring and summer promotes air flow through the cabin, helping reduce the risk of VOC buildup inside the vehicle.
