Fair fun this weekend Aldergrove Star
This weekend will mark the 101st year the Aldergrove Fair Days and Country Carnival has been staged, and luckily not much has changed about the hugely popular down-home community event. All the favourites are back — including the tractor pull, fast draw, lawnmower races and chili cook-off. On the third weekend in July, the Aldergrove Fair Days Society, along with community partners like the Aldergrove Agricultural Association, hosts its annual three-day festival at the fairgrounds, located on the north fields of the Aldergrove Athletic Park near Kinsmen Community Centre on 29 Avenue, between 264 and 272 Streets.
Visitors can see the 4-H animals and come out to the Kid Zone to meet the Reptile Guy and his friends, magicians, clowns and more. There will be extreme lawnmower races on the BMX track at 10 a.m. each day. There is also turkey herding. One of the categories in the Aldergrove Agricultural Association Fair Book this year encourages people to create a turkey out of vegetables and fruits and enter it for display and judging. Aldergrove siblings Jae and Koen spent an afternoon creating a masterpiece out of pineapple, kale, apricot, celery, Chinese asparagus and red pepper. The theme for this year’s fair is “Turkeyfest,” in recognition of the Throssell family’s contribu-
tions to B.C.’s turkey breeding program. The mainstage features all sorts of musical entertainment. The Canadian Fast Draw celebrity shoot takes place at 12 p.m. Saturday, with one of the celebrities being Robin Reichman of the Real Housewives of Vancouver TV show. The fair starts Friday at 6 p.m. with a classic car show’n’shine, food, music and more. Saturday and Sunday will have fun for the entire family, with entertainment, rides, food, and great things to see and buy throughout each day. The fair goes from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, and on Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. See inside this issue and website www. aldergrovefairdays.com for more details.

Two missing words on a Langley Township document have forced a second survey to see if there is enough support to run a municipal water line to residents of 52 Avenue between 237 and 240 Streets. Council approved the do-over Monday ( July 15) after administrator Mark Bakken said for “some unknown reason” the Township “notice of proposed water local service area” told property owners the petition voting forms must be filed “before June 12, 2013,” not “on or before,” the usual wording. That survey narrowly approved the water line hookups, but five of the responses were filed on or after the deadline date. The date issue was raised by residents Shelley Murphy and Ray Murphy, who get their water from a well and don’t want to be forced to pay for a municipal hookup. They came to council July 8 to argue it was unfair to force them to make an expensive connection they don’t need based on a questionable survey. “It’s going to cost me $30,000 on my taxes over 20 years,” Shelly Murphy told council. “You’re messing with people’s finances here.” Following the council vote to throw out the first survey results and order a second, Murphy was disappointed. She thinks the proposal should have simply been declared defeated. “I do take part of it as a victory,” Murphy told Black Press, “but I think it really should be [ruled] a failed petition.” The added cost of a second survey will be minor, staff estimate, just postage and time spent adding up the results and reporting them to council. As well, a staff report to council on the issue by Township public works director Roeland Zwaag promises there will be an information meeting with 52 Avenue residents to “outline the process, discuss costing details, and respond to any outstanding questions.” Township staff have also launched a review of all bylaws and policies covering local area service requests like the 52 Avenue water hookups to make sure the wording is consistent in the future. The 52 Avenue water service proposal would connect homeowners to the East Langley Water Supply line when it arrives in the neighbourhood later this year. The $33.5 million East Langley Water Supply project to bring Metro Vancouver water to Aldergrove and Gloucester is the biggest project ever undertaken by the Township of Langley’s engineering department, with 14 kilometres of water main and a booster pump station.

Angala Taylor, Adam Smith and Annie Smith wrapped up a Sunday fundraiser in Fort Langley for a flood-stricken High River, Alberta family by taking a truck loaded with bags of donated bottles and cans in for cash. Between that, plus cash donations and donations of gift cards, more than $600 was raised.
Petition to be done again FROM FRONT:
Work on phase 1 started in May. It will run a one-metre diameter steel water main between Willoughby and Murrayville following 72 Avenue, 210 Street, Worrell Crescent, 216 Street, 56 Avenue, and 224 Street. East Langley’s water currently comes from seven groundwater wells. Because of that, during peak usage periods in the summer, water restrictions have to be enforced. Township planners are projecting increased demand for water in Aldergrove, with the population in the area growing from 12,000 to 20,000 people within 20 to 30 years.
Everyone at the Greater Vancouver Zoo is deeply saddened to have lost a dear friend, their Southern White Rhinoceros. “Charlie” was humanely euthanized last week. From early in the morning until late in the evening that day every effort was made by a team of dedicated animal care staff to attempt to determine why Charlie was struggling while eating and drinking. Dr. Bruce Burton and the team tried numerous methods before the difficult decision was made to humanely euthanize the rhino. A full necropsy was performed on Charlie the next by Dr. Chelsea Hilmsworth, an independent veterinary pathologist with the BC Animal Health Centre. He stated that, “Charlie was in excellent condition. Unfortunately, he had outlived the lifespan of his teeth. This prevented him for being able to chew his food properly, which eventually resulted in a blockage in the esophagus.” “Charlie had a special connection with many people over

WorkSafe orders halt to water line work By DAN FERGUSON Aldergrove Star
WorkSafe BC has ordered a halt to construction of the 216 Street leg of a $33.5 million Langley Township project to bring Metro Vancouver water to Aldergrove and Gloucester. Langley Township general manager of engineering and community development Ramin Seifi said work on the pipeline was shut down by the provincial workplace safety regulator on June 21 because of a disagreement over the contractor’s plans to have people work inside the three-foot diameter pipe. Seifi was responding to a question by councillor David Davis at the Monday afternoon ( July 8) meeting of council. In response to a question from councillor Kim Richter, Seifi estimated the setback will delay completion of the 216 Street section about four to six weeks, but should not affect the overall project because work on other aspects is continuing. “They’re just not laying any pipe,” he said. In an email response to a follow-up query by the Times, Township water resources and environment manager Kevin Larsen said the stop work order “could not necessarily have been anticipated in our opinion.”
“It is our understanding that past work activity and very difficult to read industry practice (design and construc- and confusing.” tion of this type) has been similar to our The “pipeline was not effectively venproject,” Larsen added. tilated,” the report said. “The project team was notified by WorkSafe inspectors wanted an WorkSafe BC that this project was increase in the number of manholes selected for further scrutiny “for the purpose of ventilation, than other past projects of a respiratory protection, rescue similar nature.” and etc.” In a written statement The East Langley Water issued Thursday ( July 11), Supply project is the biggest Pedre Contractors Ltd. of project ever undertaken by the Langley said the company has Township of Langley’s engiyears of experience building neering department, with 14 major pipeline projects and kilometres of water main and a follows procedures for working booster pump station.

Pipeline contractor responds to stop work order By DAN FERGUSON Aldergrove Star
The company building the 216 Street leg of a Langley Township water pipe line project that was shut down by WorkSafe BC says it follows strict safety standards. In a written statement issued Thursday, Pedre Contractors Ltd. said the company has years of experience building major pipeline
projects and follows procedures for working in confined spaces that exceed industry standards. Pedre said WorkSafe has asked the company to clarify its procedures. “They’ve requested clarity and we are in the process of responding to their request.” The Pedre statement said it was not a company representative who told WorkSafe that adding more hatches to the pipeline project (as
WorkSafe has proposed) might breach the warranty, nor did the company say adding hatches could cause a risk of bacterial contamination in the water pipe. The company did warn changing the design of the pipe would mean construction delays, the Pedre statement said. Work on the pipeline was halted by the provincial workplace safety regulator on June 21. Township water resources and environment
manager Kevin Larsen told Black Press the design of the pipeline followed “past industry practice” for design and construction. The 14-kilometre-long East Langley Water Supply project is the biggest project ever undertaken by the Township of Langley’s engineering department. Work started May 1 and is scheduled to run Monday to Friday until December of this year.

Spending $135,000 a year to promote farming is not a big sum compared to the estimated $277 million the industry generates annually in Langley Township. That’s according to a staff report that called the projected cost of the the Agricultural Viability Strategy (AVS) a “relatively small investment.” At least one member of council was concerned it may not be enough to implement the recommendations of the strategy, a longrange plan to boost agricultural activity while at the same time easing conflict between urban and rural neighbourhoods. “That’s maybe going to hire one or two people,” said councillor Kim Richter. “It’s a start,” said councillor David Davis, a fourth-generation Langley dairy farmer. Davis said agriculture “is a bit of sleeping giant right now” that could potentially boost the local economy far more than it does now. “It’s unbelievable, the potential,” Davis said. Council wrapped up more than three years of consultation and public meetings by unanimously endorsing the AVS at their Monday ( July 15) meeting, but postponed
Abby’s propane cannon bylaw doesn’t move ahead Aldergrove Star
A proposed bylaw that would limit the use of propane cannons left Abbotsford’s city council divided last Monday, and was ultimately struck down. Council was split on whether to pass the third reading of a bylaw that would limit the use of audible bird scare devices (ABSDs). At a public hearing last month, residents voiced their concerns about the bylaw, with blueberry farmers speaking against increased regulation, and other community members urging council to toughen restrictions. The use of propane cannons to keep birds away from berry crops is protected by the provincial Right to Farm Act and farmers must follow guidelines set out by the ministry of agriculture. The city does not have the authority to enforce those guidelines. To further regulate can-

nons, the city must create a “farm bylaw” that require approval from the ministry. The proposed bylaw called for registration fees for cannons, as well as signs that provided a telephone number in case of complaints. It would restrict the hours of use, and the amount of shots allowed per hour. The bylaw would also increase the distance the devices would have to be from neighbouring homes, and increase fines for violations. Council defeated the bylaw at Monday’s meeting, with councillors Patricia Ross, John Smith, Bill MacGregor and Mayor Bruce Banman voting to move the bylaw on for ministry approval, and councillors Henry Braun, Dave Loewen, Moe Gill and Les Barkman against. Banman told council “this issue is as polarizing as the cannons themselves.”

Braun said the restrictions set out by the bylaw were too strict, saying he is in favour of a farm bylaw that would allow the city to enforce the ministry’s guidelines, but not the bylaw that was in front of council. He said that the bylaw as proposed would have an adverse economic impact on blueberry farmers, who would be unable to protect their crops. Smith, who was involved in the drafting of the bylaw, said the impact on neighbouring residents is too severe to delay the issue any further. He said the bylaw should be sent to the ministry and “let them take the heat” for approval or disproval, adding it was a defeatist attitude to not send it to the ministry because it may be rejected. The issue was sent back to city staff who have been advised to work with the ministry to work towards a different solution.

Garden blooming with summer events Aldergrove Star
If you don’t know it’s there, it may be easy to miss. But once you go through the gates and stroll down the pathway, you will discover an oasis that offers environmental education, entertainment, and a chance to explore the beauty of nature. The Langley Demonstration Garden, nestled between Fraser Highway and Langley Regional Airport, has settled into its new location and the public is encouraged to come take a walk, sign up for a workshop or kids’ day camp, or enjoy one of several special events being held this summer. “Come any day, dawn to dusk: the gates are open and we always welcome visitors,” said garden coordinator Ava Shannon. Shannon, along with garden educator Emily Huang and assistant gardener Danielle Hamel, works with the Langley Environmental Partners Society in partnership with the Township of Langley to run the Demonstration Garden, which moved to the
21200-block of Fraser Highway this spring after 20 years in Murrayville. Located in the Derek Doubleday Arboretum, the garden features beds showcasing sustainable garden techniques and native plants, composting and rain barrel displays, and picnic tables, all surrounded by scenic fields, trees, and walkways. Tours of the garden and demonstrations on sustainable gardening and composting methods are available during events and anytime the garden is open. While there is enough signage posted to allow guests to learn from walking around in self-guided tours, “We are always happy to put down our trowels and give a tour,” Shannon said. For those looking to learn more, a number of Garden Smart workshops are being offered this summer, discussing everything from worm composting and gardening with kids to canning seasonal produce and backyard composting. “These events are for everyone,” said Shannon, who noted that some popular workshops have been offered for years,

VICTORIA – Premier Christy Clark didn’t win a seat in time to join her 48 fellow B.C. Liberal MLAs in the legislature for the summer session she ordered up. By the time the byelection in Westside-Kelowna is certified by Elections B.C., Clark will be off to Niagara-on-theLake, Ont. to meet with her fellow premiers in what is now loftily called the Council of the Federation. These gatherings used to be called First Ministers’ Conferences, and there was a set ritual, largely designed for the consumption of network television. Provincial premiers ganged up on the prime minister to demand federal “funding” for every conceivable need, just as municipal leaders get together each year to present their demands to the B.C. government. Prime Minister Stephen Harper ended the show, declining to play the role of villain in this bit of political summer stock theatre, and it’s unlikely that any future national leader would reverse this prudent decision. The result, at least among western premiers, has been a quieter, more pragmatic effort to work together, rather than clumsy attempts to play a shell game with taxpayers’ pockets. The public got tired of this routine some time ago. I don’t need a poll to tell me this is one of the reasons for
Empty seats for political theatre
the decline in voter participation and engagement in issues. Today, politicians frequently remind themselves out loud that there is “only one taxpayer” supporting the squabbling layers of this over-governed country. And yet, the same mistake keeps being made over and over by opposition politicians, and dutifully reported by the news media. The notion that all problems can and should be solved by “more government funding” is now so engrained in our education system that it seems inescapable. One of the NDP’s big “gotcha” items last week was the failure of the B.C. government to buy the latest sonar technology to locate and recover the bodies of people who have drowned in one of our thousands of lakes and rivers. As with the health-care system, as soon as something is invented, some assume a right to it, regardless of cost. Another big opposition target was the province’s failure to buy up remote properties in the Kootenays that have been discovered to be at high risk of further landslides such as the one that swept through a year ago. The question of limits for protecting people who choose to build homes in risky locations seldom comes up in our political-media theatre. The media’s key ingredients are sympathetic victims to fit their
narrative that all corporations and governments are greedy, stingy, callous and incompetent in everything they do. What the opposition has dubbed “Christy Clark’s wheelchair tax” is another case in point. A Fraser Health Authority official patiently explained what was really going on here. An average $35 monthly rent for wheelchairs is charged at the majority of care facilities, which are contracted by the health authority. Operators charge as they see fit for maintenance, disinfection and replacement of this equipment, for patients who don’t own their own chairs. In September, a $25 fee is to be extended to the few facilities still directly run by Fraser Health, which have aging equipment and no fees. In all facilities, the fee is waived for those who can’t afford it. It would be useful for our politicians to frankly discuss the trend towards contracted health services, and the role of user fees in forcing people to take more responsibility for maintaining their own health. But that is not what happens. The narrative of dumping frail, impoverished seniors from their wheelchairs has no relationship to reality, but it’s how post-modern political theatre is done.

Editor: Councillor Steve Ferguson may think that Joanne Nicolato’s comments were “quite abrasive,” “not fair” and “not respectful” but I would have said her exact words had I been there. Aldergrove is always getting the shaft. To compare Aldergrove with Langley City is a foolish comparison. Langley City may not have an indoor pool, but it does have easier access to W.C. Blair Pool in Murrayville and has a much shorter commute to the LEC which cost the taxpayers of the Township (residents of Aldergrove included) over $65 million (a touch over the initial estimated costs I might add). Langley City is a separate entity (although I’m not entirely sure why) and is quite capable of building its own pool if it wants to. The reason it hasn’t is because of the easy access to facilities provided by the Township taxpayers - thank you very much, and they don’t have the tax base. I’m thinking that this ‘PERC’ group has not taken into consideration the potential usage of the facility by those people east of Station Road in Abbotsford. If they have, then they are either ignoring it or downplaying the potential usage at the request of the current council. There has been huge development just east of Safeway, and these people will be looking for a convenient and local recreation facility, which would include a pool. It frosts my socks that this group (PERC) ignored all the input from the various professional swimming associations. This could bring a lot of money to this little community and the Township and the municipal council doesn’t seem to care. Why would they? They are making money with all the events and tenants at the LEC, including MLA Rich Coleman, who for many years thought having his office in Aldergrove was okay, until space became available (at a higher cost to the taxpayer) in the LEC. The LEC houses many sports teams, but was also expanded (at a huge expense unbeknownst to the public) to facilitate more events (and they found that money without even asking the taxpayer). Doesn’t that make you a little suspicious? “Saying yes to a larger pool is saying no to something else either in this facility or elsewhere in the Township.” We have playing fields, we have an ice rink, a fitness centre would be nice as well, but the real core of discussion was an 8-lane, 50-metre pool which opens the door to many financial options. That comment leaves me wondering what other facility elsewhere in the Township is going to get the money that could have been used to provide us with the pool that we were asking for. What other facility is going to benefit by shafting Aldergrove? Remember the fruhaha about cutting the budget by not hanging any flower baskets in Aldergrove? This will be an issue at the next municipal election believe you me and if I were a member of municipal council (who by the way, got salary increases the day they took their seats, and ignored the outcry from taxpayers), I’d be looking to find ways to treat Aldergrove with a little more respect. We help pay your salaries. The lake that we used to have, in Aldergrove Lake Park (a huge tourist draw and which should now be renamed as it no longer has a lake) was allowed to deteriorate by our elected members of council. At least those who live in Langley City and anywhere west of 248 Street, can have a pool in their yard (that they can fill and refill if needed) if they chose not to use their local community pool. In Aldergrove, we don’t have that option between July 1 and September 30. We can’t wash our cars, but we can wash our car mirrors and licence plates. We can’t water our lawns (brown is good) and we can only water our gardens by hand. All I can say, is watch out come the next municipal election. Debbie Atkinson, Aldergrove

Destination: holiday at home Aldergrove Star
After working hard all year round and looking forward to precious vacation time, it’s no wonder Lower Mainlanders are ready to blow off some steam while on holidays. While an exciting summer getaway promises no shortage of fun, such trips also come with their fair share of stress – large expenses, busy airports, holiday traffic… The good news is, there is more than enough fun to be had right in our own backyard – so why not plan a fun-filled staycation this summer and enjoy the abundance of exciting activities around the Lower Mainland, while coming home to your own cozy bed each night? Here are the Black Press picks for some of must-see attractions around Metro Vancouver this summer: EXPLORE NORTH SHORE North and West Vancouver are well-known as tourist hotspots in the winter months, hosting thousands of skiers and snowboarders to their three local mountains each year. But just because the snow has melted away doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to do on the North Shore in the summertime. One of the region’s top attractions is Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. Nestled in the beautiful West Coast rainforest, this park features much more than just its namesake attraction – a 137-metre bridge situated 70-metres above the Capilano River, originally built in 1889. Newer attractions include the Cliffwalk (a labyrinth of narrow bridges, stairs and platforms high above the river) and the Treetops Adventure (a series of elevated suspension bridges linking a number of enormous Douglas fir trees). If you’re not a fan of heights and prefer to stay at sea level, a visit to Deep Cove is likely a better excursion option. This quaint little community in the easternmost part of North Vancouver offers boutique shopping, a variety of restaurants and cafes and plenty of fun outdoor activities, including kayaking, canoeing and hiking. And if you’re feeling up to a world-renowned physical

A perfect summer’s day for riding the train at the Greater Vancouver Zoo, or walking about to visit the animals. For information see website: www.gvzoo.com challenge, the Grouse Grind is officially open for the summer season. This 2.9-km trail – sometimes referred to as ‘Mother Nature’s Stairmaster’ – is made up of 2,830 stairs that elevate you 853 metres to the Peak of Vancouver. Once you make it to the top, there is plenty to do on Grouse Mountain in the summertime – dining, sightseeing, lumberjack shows and the Theatre in the Sky are just a few activities atop this breathtaking North Shore destination. ANIMAL ATTRACTIONS In certain areas of the Lower Mainland, your chances of encountering some unusual wildlife – bears, cougars, raccoons – are pretty good. But if you prefer to enjoy your animal encounters in a slightly more controlled environment, there are plenty of options for all types of animal lovers. A beautiful and scenic drive to Ladner’s Westham Island will lead you to the George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary. During the summer months, this refuge is home to dozens of bird species, including mallards, Canada geese, sandhill cranes, robins, swallows, wrens, eagles and many more. These feisty fowl are anything but shy, and will eagerly eat seed – available for purchase on site – right out of delighted visitors’ hands.
In the eastern region of the Fraser Valley is the Greater Vancouver Zoo, spanning 120 acres in Aldergrove and home to more than 100 animals, ranging from reindeer to rhinos. The safari express miniature train tours the perimeter of the zoo and includes an educational narration. Quadra-cycles – which seat two adults and two small children – are available for rent as well. Of course, a Lower Mainland creature feature wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Vancouver Aquarium in Stanley Park. Penguins, otters, dolphins, sea lions and belugas are just a few of the remarkable creatures you can get up close and personal with at this beloved landmark. There are a number of shows and demonstrations that take place throughout the day, so be sure to check the schedule online and plan your visit accordingly. ADRENALINE ADVENTURE Looking for something that will get your pulse pumping, your brow sweating and the hairs on the back of your neck standing at attention? It wouldn’t be a summer full of fun without a trip to Playland. While the popular amusement park’s most famous attraction is, without a doubt, the wooden rollercoaster – built board-byboard in 1958 –Playland is also home to a number of new, and
equally terrifying, rides. The newest attraction is the Atmosfear, where riders sit in a double swing that spins 360-degrees at speeds up to 70 km/h. Doesn’t sound too bad, right? That is, until the entire ride is elevated 218-feet in the air. Other knee-bucklers include the Hellevator, Crazy Beach Party and the Revelation. A popular Lower Mainland attraction that combines adventure, exercise and the great outdoors is WildPlay Element Park in Maple Ridge. Located near Golden Ears Park on the Allouette River, WildPlay consists of three aerial obstacle courses that visitors navigate while suspended in a harness anywhere from two to 18 metres above the ground.By climbing, zip-lining and swinging, guests traverse dozens of ladders, cargo nets, rope swings, tightropes, swinging logs and wobbly bridges. There is even a special kids course for younger adventurers; the minimum age to take part at WildPlay is seven. After all that physical activity in the hot summer sun, you’ll want to cool down – so a trip to Splashdown Park in Tsawwassen is definitely in order. This sevenacre waterpark, complete with several water slides, pools, hot tub and a children’s splash pool, plus barbecue and picnic areas is a must-visit in the summertime.

Valley mom ‘keeps it real’ with parenting blog Counterattack begins Aldergrove Star
When Kristyl Clark decided to leave her community news reporting job two years ago, she figured she’d thrive in her new role as at stay-at-home-mom. The 31-year-old bid farewell to her coworkers, cleaned out her desk and began to plot how she’d be the ‘perfect’ stay-at-home parent. “I had grown up watching the moms on TV and in the movies who always seemed to be happy, showered and put together,” said the mother-of-two young girls, Molly, four, and Zoe, two. “I dreamed about baking my own bread, immersing my girls with fun, educational activities and having a tidy, organized home... boy was I in for a rude awakening!” After a few days of diaper duty, toddler tantrums, missed showers and mountains of pink laundry, the rookie mom from Langley quickly discovered that being a stay-at-home mom wasn’t what she thought it would be. Clark also felt the pangs of loneliness that often come with being housebound – especially during the winter months. “The majority of my friends were working and I ended up being chained to the house because of my daughters’ nap times... I guess you could say I
felt a little disconnected from the rest of the world,” said Clark, who decided to put her unused writing skills to use and launch a parenting ‘blogazine’ called She’s a Valley Mom. The goal behind the site, which is half blog/half magazine is to connect parents in the Fraser Valley with valuable tips, resources and advice from Clark and her army of Valley moms and dads who write regularly for the blog. “Just like the TV shows I grew up watching, moms in magazines always look so happy... so put together. Yes, there are lots of moms out there who are that way and kudos to them – I’m loving every minute of motherhood, but it’s a lot messier and chaotic than I ever imagined. I think that if I had gone into it with a more realistic view I wouldn’t have had such a tough adjustment period.” She’s a Valley Mom features a variety of parent-friendly topics, including recipes, a Fraser Valley family events calendar, Clark’s Pink Laundry column, which runs monthly in the Langley Times, ideas for date nights, a weekly feature on inspiring moms called ‘Mom Crush’ and much more. Even before the site launched, SAVM garnered the support of Real Housewives of Vancouver star Jody Claman and Canadian

The petition will be issued to proponent Dana Larsen on Monday, September 9, 2013 and signature sheets must be submitted to the Chief Electoral Officer by Monday, December 9, 2013. The Title of the Initiative is: An initiative to amend the Police Act. Summary of Initiative: The initiative draft Bill entitled, “Sensible Policing Act” proposes to amend the Police Act to no longer use provincial police resources on the enforcement of current laws in relation to simple possession and use of cannabis by adults. The draft law would prohibit the use of provincial police resources for this purpose, would require police to report in detail to the Minister of Justice any actual use of resources for this purpose and why it was necessary, and require the Minister to publish that report. The Bill also proposes that the province would call upon the Federal Government to repeal the federal prohibition on cannabis, or give British Columbia an exemption, such that British Columbia is able to tax and regulate cannabis similar to the regulation of alcohol and tobacco. As well it proposes that British Columbia shall establish a Provincial Commission to study the means and requirements necessary for the province to establish a legal and regulated model for the production and use of cannabis by adults. Last, the Bill would make non-lawful possession and use of cannabis by minors an offence similar to possession and use of alcohol.

School is officially out for summer but something that took place just before it ended, involving an Aldergrove Community Secondary student, brought one teacher to tears and it was too big a moment not to share, said Brookswood teacher Dino Camparmo. ACSS Grade 12 student Sam Way inspired hundreds, including fellow students, his principal and family, by refusing to give up, finishing a 400m run despite falling down several times. Way was participating in Operation Trackshoes in June, with the Langley team made up of students from Aldergrove, Brookswood, D.W. Poppy and Walnut Grove. Operation Trackshoes is an annual provincial sports festival for people with developmental disabilities. Camparmo is the coordinator for the Langley team and has been helping at this event for more than five years. “Most of us would find running one lap

If that isn’t enough, trying running 400m with gross motor control issues. “This did not stop Sam today,” wrote Camparmo in a letter to the school district. “He started off the race strong, but fatigue
settled in near the 300m mark. Sam lost his balance and fell to the track. Two things happened that moment that showed the power of the human spirit: First, I was inspired by Sam’s will to compete. . . Sam got back on his feet, only to stumble again on to the track. But this was not
going to stop him….he was going to finish the race and he did,” wrote Camparmo. “Secondly, I was amazed by the compassion and kindness of Sam’s teammates. “When they saw Sam lose his balance, several of them got up and ran to assist him. . . They were
beside Sam for each of his next falls…helping him back up, running, cheering and clapping until he crossed the finish line. Sam finished last in the race, however his determination to finish and his teammates’ compassion will always be first in my mind.” ACSS principal John Pusic said he isn’t surprised to hear of Sam’s determination. “He is an inspiration to us all. He has such a positive attitude and never quits,” said Pusic. Way came to high school in a wheelchair. He was determined to not use it. “And now look, not only is he not using it, he is running,” said Pusic. Sam formally graduated the year before but was back for a few classes this year. When he graduated, he walked across the stage to get his diploma. “Several of us still have that picture framed and in our office,” he said. Way was unavailable for comment, because he is on vacation.

Long before she became the marketing director for UsedEverywhere.com, Lacey Sheardown was a borderline-obsessive user of the classifieds site. “I was always on there — I was an avid user,” she said with a laugh. Her Victoria home is filled with furniture and other unique items she bought or found for free on UsedEverywhere. “So when I got this job, my friends were like, ‘Yeah, that makes sense’.” But what drew Sheardown to the site was more than the satisfaction of treasure hunting. Unlike other classifieds sites out there, this was a place where she could look for a new coffee table without stumbling

romoting the area we live in is a way of ensuring our continued enjoyment of the area by having growth in population and interest by outside business to buy here or even relocate here. It goes hand in hand with promoting our own businesses and workplaces. What better time exists to promote than at the Cruise-In?
The Langley Good Times Cruise-In is the best attended charity event in the Western Canada. It is an excellent opportunity to see the downtown core of Langley at its best. With over 100,000 people walking around the town, there is a distinct air of excitement and electricity that is hard to replicate any other time. The merchants have their businesses painted up and are doing their best to display their wares to all that are in the area. The entire city is mobilized to promote itself and to assist in the fundraising. The presence of over 1,000 classic cars gives us reason to show off our city and bring people to it. And the real benefit of the show is that all of the funds that are raised here are donated to local charities to assist Langley area people with challenges and problems. From the Langley Hospital Auxiliary to the Valley Therapeutic Equestrian Centre or the Langley Boys and Girls club, the thousands of dollars
If you are a business person in or around the city, or if you are a resident of the city or surrounding area, this is your opportunity to invite people to come to Langley and see what the area has to offer. Bring in business people and bring in tourists. Bring in anybody who may fall in love or see a benefit of the city to their future. While you are at it, make a small or a large donation to the Cruise-In and encourage them to do the same. The buzz of a successful event spreads to the attendees and will contribute a general positive attitude to the whole area. People will remember the feelings, the sights and sounds and smells that surrounded them at the fun event and will associate that fun with the location they experienced it.
across an ad for a casual NSA encounter at the local park. “We’re actually family friendly,” she said. Across more than 80 cities and towns, the site has a real, live monitoring team, checking ads every hour of the day, ensuring quality content and dependable transactions. “Your kid can surf our site and you can be comfortable with it.” UsedEverywhere.com is now owned by Black Press (which publishes the Langley Times). It has as many unique visitors in Canada as Craigslist and is the number-one free classified site in Ottawa, Victoria and PEI. The site includes an informative blog and Facebook page. As much as the site is about buying and selling, it’s also about connecting people and building community, on- and off-line, with a flesh-andblood UsedEverywhere community co-ordinator working locally. Following the flooding in Alberta, the site encouraged Albertans to donate items for flood victims on its four sites in the province: UsedCalgary.com, UsedRedDeer.com, UsedCentralAlberta.com and UsedEdmonton.com.

Western Canada’s Best attended Charity event
Lacey Sheardown works at the vintage table set she got on UsedVictoria. ers like Sheardown, she said it appeals to other demographics as well. “My husband is on the site, on his phone, hitting refresh every 10 minutes,” she said laughing. “We think he has a bit of a problem.” So what’s the coolest thing she got on UsedEverywhere? It’s a large stereo cabinet that was brought over from Europe after the Second World War. “They had the clothes on their backs, 20 bucks and this giant, enormous stereo cabinet. And we got it for free!” It’s the bonus of hearing a story or meeting new people that Sheardown appreciates about using the site. “There’s always history with the item or you meet an interesting person,” she said. “Hearing those stories is great.”

In Vancouver, you might find the community co-ordinator at the farmer’s markets or most recently at the Vancouver Children’s Festival where UsedEverywhere was a major sponsor. They are also involved with projects such as a car and booster seat recycling program that took place last month (they recycled 83 expired seats) as well as a new initiative in the next month to work with local business, allowing them to advertise on the site and connect with buyers. Their community coordinators even look for personal opportunities to help locally through the Angels program. Last year, for instance, they helped a Vancouver woman undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer by finding breast milk for her baby. Sheardown said community involvement is a big component of the company’s DNA. “It’s a social responsibility,” she said. “Our site is about reusing, reducing and recycling and so being a part of the community and helping in other ways is connected that.” Even though the site has been embraced mostly by professional moth-

‘Special’ memories made with Olympians By GARY AHUJA Aldergrove Star
There were three lasting memories from the Special Olympics BC Summer Games that will stick with Arne Olson for quite some time. One came before the Games began, one during and one after. Olson was chair of the Games, which ran July 11 to 13 in Langley. Olson saw a Special Olympics athlete — a man in his 40s — and he was standing on a sidewalk, staring off. “I realized later he was missing the people who had dropped him off,” Olson said. “I saw someone come up to him, a
coach, turn, look him full in the face, touch his shoulder and gently — as if he were a piece of fine bone china — and say ‘Kenny, come on, come join us, we want you here with us.’ “He took him so carefully and kindly, and with respect, back in to join the team,” Olson said. “I thought that is all you can really ask of an organization, to treat people like that. I was so struck with that.” The second was during the rhythmic gymnastics competition. “I saw competitor after competitor absolutely giving it their complete and utter best,” he described. “I saw one woman who had a metal brace extending below her

Power lifter James Nikal of Prince George was among the 1,100 athletes from across B.C. who competed July 12 and 13.
knee. And how you do rhythmic gymnastics with a metal brace on, I have no idea. “The courage with which these athletes competed, not just in that event, but in every event, there is no limit to the try that these athletes have. It is just full on, full throttle, raw competition and it was just a remarkable thing to watch.” And the third lasting memory was walking through the Walnut Grove Secondary gym — which hosted the closing ceremonies and an athletes’ dance on Saturday night — as the competitors danced away to the music. “I saw athletes of every shape and description and I was stuck with this thought, this picture,” he said. “Every painter has a palette with colours that you use and as I looked at this group of people, I was stuck with that I had a complete glimpse of God’s full complete palette. I was quite taken with that.” More than 1,100 athletes from around the province and the Yukon, 300 coaches and 1,200 volunteers took part in the Games. “I was really pleased to see how many Games volunteers came up to me afterwards to ask how they can continue being involved with Special Olympics,” said Pam Keith, the Special Olympics BC chair, as well as the announcer for the rhythmic gymnastics competition. “In addition to being an amazing experience in itself, I think this Games will leave a great legacy of appreciation and awareness for Special Olympics.” Olson, who had originally wanted

Steve Schoeler competed in the long jump at the Special Olympics BC Summer Games held at McLeod Park on the weekend. 1,000 volunteers, was impressed with how flexible they were, many of them ending up with differing roles than what they were supposed to do. He also credited the generosity of the community, not just in terms of their time, but in their resources as well. Organization for the Games began in April 2012. Olson said while there is a sense of satisfaction from hosting a successful Games, it is also bittersweet to see
everything come to a close. And while the opening ceremonies at the Langley Events Centre were a much more elaborate affair, the closing ceremonies consisted of a speech from Township of Langley Mayor Jack Froese and Olson’s closing address, which included just four lines: “Who loves to dance, who thinks they are a great dancer, are you happy, and if you are happy, then our Games organizing committee is happy.”

Redlin moves up in kart series Aldergrove Star
Aldergrove kart racer Jordan Redlin scored two third place finishes and had the privilege to put another nice trophy on his shelf last weekend. “Finishing on the bottom step of the podium was a good result for us as we just switched onto a different brand of racing kart, and also started receiving support from a new team,” said Redlin. West Coast Metal Recycling has come aboard with sponsorship funding for Redlin.
“So far I have moved up into the third place ranking of this series and I am only nine points away from clinching second. There is only one racing weekend left of this series but that does not mean I can relax yet.” In another series he has qualified to race for a ticket to the world finals of karting, this year to be held in the USA. “I will be competing for a chance to race against the best in the world and to represent Canada on the world stage,” said Redlin.

Many music lovers have already marked their calendars to attend the 26th annual Mission Folk Music Festival from July 25-28 at Fraser River Heritage Park. Online ticket sales for early bird passes have increased 10 per cent over last year, according to festival director Francis Edwards. This year’s festival will feature some of the finest Celtic music and brightest stars, such as Dick Gaughan, Mairi Campbell and Liz Carroll. Gaughan is a Scot, from Leith on the southern shore of the Firth of Forth. Once you hear the man sing the songs he loves most a spell is cast as you are drenched in the voice and the strength of the old ballads. With a rich career since the 1970s, Gaughan was a founding member of Boys of the Lough and Five Hand Reel. Campbell’s awards pretty much tell her story: Tutor of the Year and Scots Singer of the Year, Scots Trad Music Award, and LiveIreland’s Female Musician of the

HAFI adapts homes for B.C. seniors and people with disabilities
Brenda has always been an active woman. However, recent health issues including osteoarthritis in her left knee and losing kidney function have slowed her down. Her mobility is limited and she is now on dialysis three days a week. To adjust to her changed circumstances, Brenda sought help with her daily living activities. Part of that help came from the Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) program offered through BC Housing. Launched in January 2012, the HAFI program provides financial assistance to help eligible low-income seniors and people with disabilities adapt their homes so they can continue to live independently. Brenda applied for a new walk-in bathtub because she couldn’t safely get out of the tub on her own. Walk-in tubs include additional safety measures such as anti-slip floors, grab bars, and a very low step in. Home adaptations may also include handrails in halls or stairs, ramps for

Groundwater aquifers are strained when residents use more water in the summer and low levels of rainfall limit the aquifers’ ability to recharge. Follow these tips to decrease your usage:
1. Replace the old inefficient fixtures in your house with water-saving fixtures such as low-flow toilets, showerheads, and sink aerators. 2. Instead of running tap water until it is cold, keep a jug of water in the fridge. This saves 7 to 12 litres of water a minute and dissipates the taste of chlorine. 3. Decreasing your lawn sprinkling to once a week for an hour increases the grass’ resiliency to drought. Avoid a mist that will evaporate quickly. 4. Spreading a layer of organic mulch around your plants helps the soil retain moisture. 5. Use rain barrels to water the garden and reduce pressure on our water systems.

Summer Maintenance of Rural Boulevards and Ditches The Township of Langley uses three full-time and one seasonal roadside grass mower for ditch mowing. This equipment has predetermined routes or an assigned area to follow. If the equipment is pulled away to do a specific request, it only lengthens the time it takes to fully complete all the rural boulevards and ditches. If you have a request for mowing or brushwhacking, we ask that you be patient as we try to fit the work schedule in as efficiently as possible. The Township, along with Provincial and Federal agencies, have classified open channel water systems into three categories: Class A ditches are fish bearing and Class B ditches are fish habitat. Both of these categories require formal approval before any work can be completed. Class C ditches are deemed to have no fish or fish habitat issues whatsoever and only require notification for work to take place. How or when a ditch is cleaned depends on its classification. Thank you for your understanding as we operate under these requirements.
Closures will be held at: Mavis Avenue between Glover Road and River Road: 5:00am - 7:15am, and 8:30am - 10:00am River Road between 240 Street and Mavis Avenue: 5:00am - 7:15am, and from 8:30am - 7:00pm 96 Avenue between Glover Road and Trattle Street: 6:45am - 7:15am Glover Road between Mavis Avenue and 96 Avenue: 6:45am - 7:15am Traffic control will be on site to provide residents and event participants with a safe means of travel during the event.
