Langley teens’ legacy lives on Legacy Water Search and Recovery Society aims to bring closure to families of drowning victims
“Some days I find myself thinking about them a lot.”
MONIQUE TAMMINGA Times Reporter
The drowning deaths of two Langley boys, Brendan Wilson, 17, and Austin Kingsborough, 18, in April put this community in a state of shock. Their loss is still felt today. Many friends of the boys still carry the logo “For the Boys” on their vehicles. But now some family members and friends of the family are keeping the boys’ legacy alive by starting up a nonprofit society dedicated to searching and recovering victims of drowning. Their goal is to buy and use special sonar equipment similar to that used to recover Wilson’s and Kingsborough’s bodies, after the RCMP dive team were unable to using the limited equipment they had. The non-profit organization, called Legacy Water Search and Recovery Society, will be dedicated to bringing closure to the families of drowning victims. “We want to bring closure for the next family — to help families who find themselves in the same situation we were in,” said Scott Lebus, family friend of the Wilson family, who is president of the water recovery society. He said it is agonizing not knowing, not having that closure. After five agonizing days, the RCMP dive team called off their search in the choppy waters of Nicola Lake, near Merritt, where the boys went missing on April 20. “The RCMP came up on April 26, at 1:33 p.m., and told us we’re done searching,” said Lebus. “It was crushing.” On that day, Lebus and Connie Wilson contacted Gene Ralston from Idaho for his help. He is an underwater search specialist with unique side scanner sonar equipment that can locate victims in water as deep as 900 feet. Since 1999, Ralston has recovered more than 86 bodies.

Jim Ward, left, and Scott Lebus, right, have started a non-profit society to purchase equipment for the recovery of drowning victims after two Langley boys died in Nicola Lake this year. A couple from Idaho were brought to B.C. to recover the bodies of Austin Kingsborough and Brendan Wilson after a police search failed to find them. their time, only asking that people pay for the travel expenses. “Often victims of drowning are never located and police are unable to resolve the case successfully,” said LeBus. It took the Ralstons nearly a week to arrive in Merritt, but in less than 30 minutes they discovered both boys in 75 feet of water near the Wilson cabin. Gene recovered both boys’ bodies through the use of a remote operated vehicle or ROV. Thanks to the Ralstons, both boys went home. A memorial service was held for both boys at Christian Life Assembly, and hundreds came out. Also part of the society is Jim Ward, Brendan’s uncle. He said his sister and

brother-in-law are keeping very busy and do have two other kids that keep them strong. “But everyone has bad days. Some days, I find myself thinking about them a lot,” said Ward. “We have been there and we know. So we can also bring that emotional support component too, to those families searching,” Ward said about what the society will be about. Both Ward and Lebus will be trained to do recoveries. They hope to create a pool of trained volunteers ready to go where they are needed. Lebus and Ward have had the help of the Ralstons in setting up the society, and they hope to be trained by Gene.

tragedy are involved in the society. After locating the boys, the Ralstons went to Shuswap Lake to look for a missing fisherman, John Poole, a 59-year-old husband and father. His fishing boat was discovered on the shoreline, with engine running and fishing lines still in the water on April 30. The Ralstons worked six days straight, nine hours a day, and on the morning of May 13, they located Poole’s body in 235 feet of water, right off the point of his favourite fishing spot. Poole’s widow and stepson are part of the society. The RCMP divers do not have this unique equipment nor do they have the resources to be trained to use it. continued, PAGE 6

Hot dog warnings falling on deaf ears Too many pet owners are still not getting the message to leave animals at home on warm days, say Langley RCMP MONIQUE TAMMINGA Times Reporter
It shouldn’t need to be a reminder, but clearly dog owners in Langley and all across B.C. aren’t getting the message to leave their fourlegged friends at home when it’s hot. By July 10, police had to deal 18 times with a dog in distress, trapped inside a hot vehicle, said Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks. “We have had 18, three extreme cases, and we don’t want to see anymore,” said Marks. Another alarming trend is toddlers being left in hot vehicles, resulting in two deaths in Canada this month. In neighbouring Abbotsford, a recent case saw a toddler and 12-year-old boy asleep in a hot car, with the windows rolled up while the parent shopped at a grocery store. Police got involved there. Marks is offering suggestions for people who come upon a dog in a hot vehicle: First, check to see if there is a way it can be offered water, or spray down the car with cold water, put a blanket over the window to provide some shade and if you feel you are
safe to do so, try to have the vehicle owner paged if at a store. But if there is no way of finding the owner fast, call 911. “We don’t want to encourage people to break windows,” Marks said. “Wait for police to arrive and update the 911 dispatchers on the condition of the dog.” Stay by the vehicle until police arrive if you can. The SPCA, and in Langley, the Patti Dale Animal Shelter, do not handle these situations. They will only refer you to your local police. The interior of a car can quickly heat up to 45 degrees Celsius (110 F). Even if a vehicle is parked in the shade, the sun moves, and that shade can quickly turn to sun. Without a breeze, on really hot days, shade provides little comfort.
SIGNS OF HEATSTROKE IN PETS: • exaggerated panting (or panting suddenly stops); • rapid or erratic pulse; • salivation; • weakness and muscle tremours; • lack of coordination; • convulsions or vomiting; • collapse.

Summer days are made for chasing sticks and splashing in the water, but not all dogs are enjoying the current hot, dry spell, say police. By July 10, Langley RCMP had already responded to 18 calls of dogs being left unattended inside hot vehicles.
Woman flees attack, seeks help at rural Langley home MONIQUE TAMMINGA Times Reporter
A woman had to flee on foot and bang on the door of a rural Langley home after allegedly being held against her will and sexually assaulted on the morning of July 22, said Langley RCMP. Around 2 a.m., Langley RCMP responded to a 911 call for assistance in the 21300 block of 4 Avenue. Once on scene, officers were met by a distraught 28-year-old Surrey woman alleging she had been held against her will and was the victim of a sexual assault. The woman, who is believed to live a
high risk lifestyle, told officers that she had met a man earlier on a street in Surrey. After driving into Langley with the man, the woman wanted out of the vehicle. A struggle ensued and the vehicle left the road, into a ditch, said Const. Craig Van Herk, media spokesperson for the Langley RCMP. The woman ran from the car and sought help at a nearby residence. The Langley home owners helped out the distraught woman and quickly called 911, he said. The suspect was arrested moments later standing beside his car which was still in the ditch.
Twenty-seven-year-old James Kovach of Surrey has been charged with two counts of forcible confinement, two counts of sexual assault, attempting to choke to overcome and assault. He has no prior criminal history. He was released on $5,000 bail on Wednesday. His next court appearance is in Surrey Provincial on Aug. 6. “This incident remains a priority investigation for the Langley RCMP,” say Van Herk. “Langley RCMP Serious Crime Section has conduct of this investigation and continues to consult with other policing agencies to ascertain if there are any connec-
tions with other on-going investigations.” Police praise the quick actions of the victim and of the home owners who came to her aid. “It wouldn’t be easy to answer the door in the middle of the night to a distraught woman but it’s nice to see in this day and age people are looking out for one another,” said van Herk. “This woman may have been engaged in a high risk lifestyle but her quick actions of getting out of the car quickly and getting help and the public helping her and contacting us right away all led to police being able to make an arrest of the suspect right in place.”

Numerous charities across Langley are scrambling after a heartless thief or thieves made off with one of Otter Co-op’s commercial-sized barbecues, which are lent out to nonprofit organizations. “It’s booked all summer long for charity events. We also supply the propane,” said Jack Nicholson, Otter Co-op general manager. “The thief didn’t just steal a barbecue, he stole from the whole community.” For five years now, Otter Co-op has lent out a barbecue to all sorts of associations, sports and school groups to
help them raise funds through barbecue sales. It was so necessary and successful, Otter Co-op actually went out and bought another. On Sunday night, at 2 a.m., thieves cut the the locks of the enclosure that a barbecue was stored in, at Otter Co-op’s store at 248 Street and Fraser Highway. Police are on the case but members of the community are too. “We posted it on our Facebook page and that day we had 116,000 people view it,” said Nicholson. “We’ve had great community support on this.” Numerous people have com-
mented on the theft, many saying how low the thief went to steal from a charity. Others are reposting across the Lower Mainland and some are reporting sightings of it. Insurance will replace the barbecue, but it will take a while. Nicholson is just hoping the thief does the right thing and return it so charities can use it again for the summer. The barbecue has “Otter Co-Op” logo on it. A similar industrial-sized barbecue was taken from Lepp Farm in Abbotsford last week. If you know anything about this theft, call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.

Barrage of motions from Schaffer
BRENDA ANDERSON Times Reporter
Making the City of Langley more walkable and bike friendly, giving small apartment dwelling dogs a place to run around, allowing urban residents the opportunity to grow their own food and addressing the ongoing issue of abandoned and derelict properties were among the issues that Councillor Ted Schaffer hoped to address by introducing no fewer than seven motions at Langley City councilâ€™s July 22 meeting. Schafferâ€™s series of motions included the improvement and expansion of the Cityâ€™s walkway and trail system along the Nicomekl flood plain; bike paths connecting the flood plain trail to the Cityâ€™s downtown area; providing incentives â€” such as free locks and/or helmets â€” to encourage more residents to ride bicycles; and the establishment of a community garden and an off-leash area for small dogs. He asked that staff investigate adding more funding to the budget for maintenance of the downtown area and he suggested that they draft a stronger bylaw regarding boarded-up houses. Speaking to the motion regarding abandoned properties, Councillor Teri James questioned Schaffer about the specific intention of the motion â€” whether it was to have the buildings torn down or to levy fines against the owners. Schaffer replied that it is both. He referred to a group of City residents who attended a meeting earlier this year to complain about the state of empty homes in their neighbourhood which have been purchased by a developer, but are not yet slated for demolition. He noted that abandoned properties in the City are often left to dete-
riorate and the grass allowed to grow unchecked. They devalue neighbouring properties and create a fire hazard, Schaffer said. He suggested that when an abandoned house catches fire, owners could be levied a â€œheftyâ€? fine of as much as $10,000 in addition to paying the costs of fighting the blaze. In response to Schafferâ€™s efforts to have improvements made to walking trails and connecting bike paths, Councillor Dave Hall indicated that both issues are addressed in the Master Parks and Environment Plan. Hall, who chairs the Parks and Environment Advisory Committee, said that staffâ€™s line has consistently been, â€œweâ€™re addressing it in the parks master plan.â€? â€œI support the improvements as a priority, but I believe weâ€™re already there,â€? Hall said. Schaffer pointed out that residents have already been waiting a year and a half to see proposed improvements undertaken. â€œHow long can people wait? Another year and a half? Thatâ€™s three years. It would be nice to have something actually done.â€? With respect to Schafferâ€™s request to have staff look into the development of a community garden on Michaud Crescent, behind the West Country Inn Hotel, other council members suggested that while it is a good idea, Schaffer should re-word the motion to be less specific about the location of such a garden. Councillor Rosemary Wallace suggested he broaden it to include the entire City, which Schaffer agreed to do. â€œFood security is an area that is important. It would be prudent to work with the neighbourhoods and not just leave it up to staff to decide,â€? said Wallace.
â€œI think neighbourhoods would buy into that.â€? Schafferâ€™s motion to introduce an off-leash park for small dogs, around 201A Street and Michaud Crescent (the location of Linwood Park), was also deemed too specific. Councillor Jack Arnold said he could think of a few sites around the City that would be appropriate. Schaffer noted that the City had recently approved between 300 and 400 new condominium units in the immediate area of the park. Many of those will be occupied by seniors who donâ€™t have the option to go to the large dog off-leash park at 206 Street and 44A Avenue. Hall suggested Schafferâ€™s â€œpet projectâ€? should go in the queue with the others to be evaluated when council debates its next budget. Hall said City residents have faced compounding tax increases over what are essentially cosmetic issues. â€œAt budget time, if we come up with additions, letâ€™s have something thatâ€™s a subtraction.â€? Schaffer said he is aware that several of the items he brought forth in his motions are addressed in the cityâ€™s long term master plans, but he felt they should be â€œbrought to the forefront and given daylight.â€? The motions stemmed from a Livable Cities conference that council attended in Portland, Ore. in June, where many of the issues facing the City were addressed. With a six-week break until the next regularly scheduled meeting, Schaffer said he introduced the motions as a bundle because he hoped staff would have time to look into the issues and report back. Council reconvenes on Monday, Sept. 9.

The society is appreciative of what the RCMP can do, but feel this society could really make a difference. “A man was missing in Newfoundland for 73 days and Gene came there and found him in 29 minutes,” said Lebus and Ward. But the equipment isn’t “magic,” said Lebus. The Ralstons were called to Harrison Lake this month to try and recover the body of a missing camper believed to have drowned in early June. They were unable to locate the man in the deep water, and called off the search. Already the Grand Pub in Merritt, on its own, held a fundraiser for the society, raising $3,400. That allowed the founders to build the infrastructure, including registering the society and creating a website. The equipment they want to buy isn’t cheap but is made right here in B.C. They said the society is looking for around $350,000 and that will cover buying the equipment, an RV, boat and training for volunteers, to be ready to go out and help throughout this province. “It would be amazing to reach that goal and be ready by next summer,” said Ward and Lebus. This is a tragedy that is impacting a lot of families, especially this year. The number of drownings in B.C. is way up from last year, with more than 40 reported by mid-July. “We want to incorporate education around water safety too. I’d prefer to educate than recover,” said Ward. He points out that even tethering a life jacket

The group of volunteers both here and in Alberta are hoping to get several corporate sponsors to help. “If we could just get 10 companies to donate $15,000 each, we are more than half way there,” said Lebus. There will be a For the Boys Memorial Golf Tournament to benefit Legacy Water Search and Recovery on Thursday, Sept. 12, at Newlands Golf & Country Club. Tickets are $160 and available on the website www.legacywatersearch. com. There will also be an identical golf tournament in Calgary in September. Tickets are also available on the website for that. The founders are currently registering the society, so it can provide tax receipts for anyone wanting to make a donation to the society.

Mobile home park residents press for improved protection DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter
Some residents of the 160home Forest Green Estates park made a pitch for improved protection from redevelopment Monday night ( July 22), arguing Langley Township should adjust the zoning of the site at 9080 198 St. One suggested creating a new category called “seniors oriented pocket neighbourhood” while another said an existing mobile home designation could be applied. They were speaking at a public hearing on changes to the official community plan (OCP) that will alter the designation of the Forest Green Estates park from its current category of “industrial” to “urban.” While residents are less worried the change will lead to the redevelopment of the park following an information meeting with council, they would still like to see measures to pre-
serve it as reasonably priced housing for seniors. “I think it’s [Forest Green] definitely needed and should be kept,” said Bill MacDonald, a spokesman for the residents. Council made no decision on the proposals Monday night. Re-zoning would not require a change to the OCP that would have to be approved by Metro Vancouver, but would require a public hearing. The residents picketed council July 10 to protest the OCP change they fear will make it much easier to redevelop the 55-and-over gated park into condominiums. No redevelopment application has been filed. Then, more than 100 residents attended a July 17 evening meeting with Mayor Jack Froese and councillors David Davis, Kim Richter, Grant Ward, Charlie Fox and Bev Dornan, along with Ramin Seifi, Township general manager of engineering and community development, and strategic planner
Jason Chu. Seifi told residents the change to an urban designation will mean any rezoning application would have to have input from the residents, something that would not be required for an industrial property. The Township has regulations that protect mobile home park residents in the event of a rezoning. Under the Mobile Home Park Development Policy approved in 2008, a developer must arrange and pay for disposal of existing homes at or above the assessed value of the homes; must offer opportunities for right-of-first-refusal to purchase the new housing units at discounts and must provide low-cost housing options. A developer applying to rezone a mobile home park is also required to provide tenants with advice on options for relocating to market housing, non-market housing and other mobile home parks in the area.

Taxpayers ripped off
etting around the Langley area has been quite a challenge this summer. One of the the most annoying road closures is 216 Street between Milner and 56 Avenue. This a major corridor between Murrayville, the Langley Airport, McLeod Athletic Park and Willoughby, and the alternatives are often very badly plugged with traffic. Unfortunately, this is a road closure without a foreseeable end, as work has been halted on the East Langley water line, which is the reason the road is closed, due to a workplace safety dispute. As a result of this closure, Glover Road has ben very badly backed up at times this summer. The fact that work on the Mufford overpass is taking place along Glover doesn’t help matters any. Another lengthy closure this summer is 192 Street, just across the border in Surrey. This is closed due to work on another rail overpass. The closure was set to end in late July, but has now been extended to the end of August. This road is used by a number of Langley City and Township residents to get to Highway 10, and west into Surrey. It is also a major truck route to and from businesses just south of Highway 10, and further south in the Campbell Heights business park. These trucks have, for the most part, been diverted to other roads in Langley and Surrey, adding additional congestion. Fraser Highway has often been backed up as well, due to widening to four lanes between 224 and 232 Streets. Much of that work has been completed, but the project isn’t quite done. A much worse problem has been on Highway 1, which is seeing the eastbound highway widened to three lanes between 232 and 264 Streets. While the need for this work is obvious, as trucks going uphill often slow the rest of the freeway traffic, the delays this summer have been frequent and lengthy. Traffic reporters are, almost daily, saying the freeway is backed up to 200 Street. It is particularly bad during the evening rush hour. These may well have been the most sustained traffic jams in Langley history. Road improvements are welcome, and delays are understandable, but they do create a lot of challenges for drivers. They are particularly difficult for visitors to the area who are not familiar with traffic patterns.

aple Ridge and Pitt Meadows taxpayers, like those in most small municipalities in Metro Vancouver, are getting ripped off, first by their own municipal councils, then by Metro Vancouver and its insatiable thirst for higher and higher regional levies. To be fair to Metro Vancouver, the biggest ripoff of all is TransLink, the regional board which is responsible for roads, bridges and transit in the Metro region. Increasingly over the past few decades, local councils have been talked into or forced to relinquish much of the control over their own official community plans to Metro. At the same time, local councils were bullied into participating in TransLink, an organization which services larger population centres, such as Surrey and Vancouver, quite well. Those of us living in the outlying areas are not served well, or at all, but we pay the most. According to TransLink, the target for user pay on transit services is a lofty 52 per cent, but currently languishes at less than 40 per cent. Most of the difference is made up of various taxes and levies, which we all pay. Whatever happened to the concept of user pay? We are represented on the mayors’ council on TransLink by Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin, who has distinguished himself in that capacity by accomplishing little or nothing on behalf of local commuters. Bus service to east Maple Ridge is a bad joke, and in Silver Valley it simply does not exist. Vehicle use is an absolute must for most local commuters and they pay dearly for that through levies on petroleum sales. We have some of the worst commuting corridors in the region, another area largely ignored by TransLink. At TransLink, Daykin displays a strong aversion to standing up to be counted on behalf of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows commuters. He seems quite content to collect his indemnity. —Maple Ridge News The Langley Times is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry.

Busker ban shows lack of vision Editor: Buskers cause harm to no one. Buskers don’t ask anyone for anything, because it would be insulting to their ability to perform. Buskers earn what they deserve based on their ability, appearance and positive attitude. When individuals take issue with busking, it is usually because they lack understanding and tend to live life inside the box. Buskers live outside the box which makes it extremely difficult to communicate with these individuals because of the walls that form the box. The walls are a major barrier to clear communication. It is unfortunate that some people are unable to see the world from any other perspective than their own. The vast majority of citizens understand and appreciate buskers. They admire the courage of those unique characters who passionately follow their hearts, standing bare before the world while believing in themselves and their craft. They love to see the jugglers, the magicians, the musicians. These performers brighten up the day by delivering colour, vibrancy and atmosphere to an otherwise drab cityscape. Why would any person wish to put a stop to such honourable pursuits? Clearly any person seeking to tear down, or negatively impact, efforts to add
Dan FERGUSON/Langley Times
Bruce Leitch says merchants are being short sighted in not allowing busking at Langley Mall. value to the Langley City experience is lacking in their own lives. Why is there is no longer busking at Langley Mall? Curiosity urged me to ask some of the merchants at the Langley Mall this very question, and this was their response. “We no longer allow busking at Langley Mall
because we believe that if buskers are allowed to perform here; they will bring with them drug dealers, panhandlers and thieves.” Essentially, they are suggesting that buskers are a “gateway drug” that will lead to the downfall of civilization as we know it; a scourge on society.
They should be ostracized for their counterproductive efforts to lift the spirit of the community. It should be made clear that this is a “mall policy” lobbied for by a very small minority of merchants doing business in the mall. I believe it was one merchant, but I’m not sure of that. One would think, in a democratic society, majority would rule, but not in Langley City. I would absolutely love to stand before a judge with the lobbyist to debate the logic of this “policy.” In my mind, it is tantamount to discrimination and at the very least slander. I am relatively certain there is no municipality that hands out permits for panhandling, drug dealing or thievery. There are, however, multitudes of municipalities that provide permits for busking. Cities from Vancouver to Halifax run busking programs. For that matter, they are run everywhere on the planet. Incidentally, I have auditioned for and received a busking pass for the City of White Rock. How is it that our city is denied live entertainment based on the word of individuals who are blind to reality and lack vision? Why is it that this city remains stagnant and uninvolved in this regard? Bruce Leitch, Langley
Aldergrove getting the shaft again Editor: Stop shafting Aldergrove. Once again, a roadblock has been found to prevent Aldergrove from getting the centre we deserve. First, we get shafted on the size of the pool that was wanted by members of the community. Now council is looking at making more cuts and will shaft us once again. Get your heads straight folks. When Langley Events Centre needed more money for an unexpected expansion and upgrade, it was found, with no consultation of those of us footing the bill. It just happened. The community of Aldergrove may be small, but I get the distinct impression that Langley Township council is not including the potential usage from the growing residential area east of Station Road. I will concede that the need for including an ice arena is questionable, as we do already have one. It may need some upgrades, but we do have one. The pool was the big thing and we got screwed on that and now they want to shaft us again. We deserve this facility. Hey, we can’t water our lawns in the summer, we don’t have the “lake” in Aldergrove Lake Regional Park and we can’t have a pool in our back yard in the summer for the kids to play in. No, we have to take them somewhere else, and maybe pay for that. Plus there is the cost of gas and other expenses, all of which benefit other areas of Langley or its outskirts, but not Aldergrove. We almost lost approval for hanging baskets (another nickel and dime decision) in the Aldergrove high street, and now this is going on. Let’s see — is there any other way that we can shaft this community? Debbie Atkinson, Aldergrove
Pool project putting tax payers in the deep end Editor: Re: “Aldergrove rec centre costs rise,” (The Times, July 25). The Aldergrove pool/arena project now has a planned cost of $53 million, up 50 per cent from the original $35.5 million forecast. Could not our wellpaid Township politicians sense that the project would be way The
over budget? I wonder how many of our Township employees who make $100,000 or more a year worked on this, and how they could be so wrong. The news article quotes Township parks and recreation director David Leavers as saying “Staff would only be confident in
moving forward at this time with a total project budget of approximately $50 million.” The excuse offered, according to the news article, was that there was a nine per cent discrepancy of square footage from concept to detailed plan. The financial plan offered is that they hope to get some cash
from the federal and provincial governments, and trim a few features. Then they say “we have to add another $3 million for roads and services.” Council set some parameters and approved a $35.5 million project, but staff are comfortable at a $53 million total.
When the project opens, you’ll find the taxpayers in the deep end of the pool and the penalty box of the arena, while the politicians and civil servants have a photo-op, cutting a ribbon and congratulating themselves. Dave Matlock, Langley

Two Langley homeowners are scrambling to fix their collapsing backyards, after a March landslide revealed unstable soil in the 7900 block of 227 Crescent that runs along the Salmon River. Neighbours Eric Nicholl and Roger Eggert came to Township council in early July to appeal for permission to bypass the usual approval process to shore up the site of the collapse with 8,000 cubic metres, or about 700 truck loads of fill, during the dry summer months. “We could potentially lose our homes,” Nicholl said. “The backyards to both our houses are causing actual danger,” said Eggert.

houses and contaminate the river. Earlier this year, council revised its soil deposit and removal policy to require approval by at least 80 per cent of local residents for large amounts of fill. The new process takes a minimum of six weeks which means the homeowners would lose their “window” for redoing the fill during the dry season and would likely lead to more slides during the wet winter months, the engineer predicted. On hearing that, council unanimously approved allowing the homeowners to skip the notification process, with the understanding they will inform their neighbours about the project by distributing a written notice.

Following heavy rain in March, portions of the two backyards dropped three to 4.5 metres. The shift came within eight to 10 metres of the two houses. Other houses in the area were not affected. Tests by a geotechnical engineer show up to four metres of fill was used to level the backyards overlooking the river, around the time the two houses were built in 1973. A report filed by the engineer describes the fill as an “unstable” mix of “firm to soft silt” under a one-third metre thick layer of topsoil. The soil is continuing to collapse, the report warns, and goes on to describe the situation as an “emergency” that could cause damage to both

An open letter to all Canadians Bell Canada is taking the unusual step of writing to all Canadians today. As the nation’s longest-serving telecommunications company, established shortly after Confederation in 1880, we would like to ensure Canadians clearly understand a critical situation impacting their world-leading wireless industry. Verizon Communications, a $120-billion US telecommunications giant with 100 million wireless customers, is considering entering the Canadian market. A company of this scale certainly doesn’t need handouts from Canadians or special regulatory advantages over Canadian companies. But that is exactly what they get in the new federal wireless regulations. Bell welcomes any competitor, but they should compete on a level playing ﬁeld. Fair competition is something Canadians demand and something Bell expects too after 133 years of investment in delivering world-class communications services to Canadians.
Unintended advantages for American giants: How we got here The federal government has recently taken an activist role in regulating Canada’s wireless industry. That includes giving various beneﬁts to small startup wireless competitors. With Ottawa’s help, the new companies have become part of the vigorously competitive Canadian wireless marketplace. But the government inadvertently left holes in the wireless rules that would give big US corporations the same extraordinary advantages as the small startups. And all Canadians are on the hook to pay. Verizon has said it’s looking at taking advantage of this unique opportunity. We do not believe a US company 4x the size of Canada’s entire wireless industry combined requires special help from Canada. It’s profoundly unfair to all Canadians, and Ottawa needs to close the loopholes.
3 loopholes in the rules Under federal regulations originally designed for startup competitors, Verizon would actually get these beneﬁts… 1. Verizon would be able to buy twice as much of Canada’s airwaves as Canadian companies like Bell can in an upcoming auction of wireless spectrum – the airwaves that carry your calls and data. These airwaves are a public resource, and access to them is critical to providing you with world-leading wireless services. When Ottawa auctions off Canada’s airwaves for use by telecommunications companies, it gets signiﬁcant revenues. These are public funds. It is inappropriate for our own government to essentially reserve a public resource for a company like Verizon to the detriment of Canadian companies. In doing so, the government will also reduce federal auction revenue signiﬁcantly – by potentially hundreds of millions of dollars. A loophole that gives US companies access to twice as much of our airwaves and at a lower cost is an unfair advantage, paid for by Canadians. 2. They get to piggyback on the networks of Canadian carriers wherever they don’t want to invest and build their own. Under the rules, Verizon would have the right to offer wireless service using the advanced networks funded by Canadian companies and built by Canadian workers. Industry experts say a Verizon wouldn’t need to build its own network throughout Canada, invest in Canada’s rural communities, or support Canadian jobs like Canadian wireless companies do. Instead, they would concentrate on a few big urban centres, forcing Canadian carriers to do the same while potentially cutting jobs and slashing costs in order to compete. 3. Verizon can acquire smaller Canadian competitors – but Bell and other Canadian wireless companies can’t even try. American players like Verizon can buy up new Canadian wireless companies like Wind Mobile and Mobilicity at cut-rate prices – including their existing spectrum holdings previously subsidized by Canadian taxpayers. Yet Canadian carriers like Bell are restricted from competing to acquire these Canadian startups, even if the new companies want it to happen. That means Verizon gets them for below-market value. What did Ottawa get from the United States in return for this unprecedented access to Canada? Nothing. No reciprocity in the US for Canadian companies. In fact, can you even imagine Canadian wireless companies getting preferred access to New York, Los Angeles or Chicago?
3 straightforward ways to close the loopholes The Bell team is ready to compete with anyone for your business on a level playing ﬁeld. But big US companies taking advantage of rules designed to help Canadian startups is just not on the level. To get wireless policy back on track, we propose that… 1. Canadian wireless carriers should be able to bid for the same amount of Canada’s airwaves as Americans can. 2. US operators entering Canada should roll out wireless service across the country, just as Canadian companies have. 3. If a small Canadian wireless company seeks a buyer, Canadian carriers should be allowed to bid, just as the Americans can. US giants don’t need special help from the Canadian government, and Canadians shouldn’t have to pay their way into the country. Instead, let’s give Canada’s own communications companies a fair chance to compete with them. Sincerely,
George Cope, President and CEO, Bell Canada and BCE

We’re not the only ones concerned “Why would Ottawa create a policy environment that favours a U.S. telecom giant and deliberately trashes the shareholders of the major Canadian wireless players?” Terence Corcoran, Financial Post, June 27, 2013
“But there is no basis for the Commission to give certain large companies a regulatory hand-out… so they can acquire spectrum… at a substantial discount over the price that would otherwise be received.” Verizon, Regulatory ﬁling to the FCC on U.S. Incentive Auctions, March 12, 2013
“In fact a report published last week commissioned by the CRTC suggested a similar conclusion (that wireless prices have come down meaningfully since 2008) – so we’re not entirely sure where Industry Canada is getting its data about the market not being competitive. Then again, the government wouldn’t let a little data get in the way of a good lever for getting votes, and that’s clearly what is going on here.” Bob Bek, CIBC World Markets, July 12, 2013
“The perception that Canadian prices are high relative to other jurisdictions has been seized upon by the government as an invitation to intervene and deliver lower prices. But the perception is false and the invitation is illogical.” Dr. Jeffrey Church and Andrew Wilkins of the University of Calgary, The Globe and Mail, July 8, 2013
“…the federal government’s anything-goes market interventions to support a fourth carrier have so gerrymandered the rules to favour Verizon sweeping in that any investor seriously interested in buying shares in Canadian telecom companies should be spooked.” Sean Silcoff, The Globe and Mail, June 27, 2013
“This will mean signiﬁcant layoffs which could easily trump the hiring to be done by Verizon, which besides a needed presence in retail outlets, should be able to initially handle a lot of functions (marketing, billing) from the United States.” Adam Shine, National Bank Financial, June 26, 2013
“Unlike the national incumbents in Canada, we wonder if Verizon has a strategy for wireless broadband in rural markets, a key political consideration for the current Conservative Government.” Dvai Ghose, Canaccord Genuity, July 2, 2013

Enjoy the sun on the Patio night or you’re here for the long haul, we offer something for everyone.” During the summer months, the spacious patio fills up quickly with pub-goers who want to enjoy a cold one out in the sunshine. Occasionally, there’s even live music – a perk of being located in an industrial area where there’s less concern over noise, notes Nohr. “People just love it, they can sit out on the patio and it usually stays warm out until pretty late,” said Nohr. Your alfresco pub experience doesn’t just end when the sun sets on summer. There’s also a covered patio open 365-days-a-year. Over the years, there’s been a variety of patrons who flock to Jimy Macs, including residents from care homes who roll in for a bite, notes Nohr. “We’re totally wheelchair accessible, which is great for a lot of seniors who enjoy coming by for lunches or dinners. They really have a great time.” In the hospitality industry, pubs often come and go, but Jimy Macs is in if or the long haul. “We’ve been around for over 23 years because of the consistency of what people are getting,” said Nohr. “Our food sales to liquor sales are very compatible... you won’t see that with most pubs.” When it comes to his favourite menu items, Jimy Mac’s signature soup can’t be beat. “I’m a big fan of our clubhouse but I think the best item is our soup. It’s made fresh every day – it’s actually quite comical to watch our kitchen staff making it. Everyone has to try it to make sure it has the right taste.” Even the staff tend to stick around, he adds.
“We’ve had numerous employees who have been here for more than seven years – one server over 15 years and our kitchen manager well over 20 years. Everyone really gets along well and has so much pride in the place. We’re like one big family!’ To keep things fresh, Nohr plans to shake things up a bit my bringing in some more live entertainment and additional specials. In recent months, Nohr introduced Thirsty Thursdays, $10 off all bottles of wine on Wednesdays and a $5 pint-special every day. For those who want to enjoy a few drinks and not have to drive, Jimy Macs offers a courtesy shuttle service every Friday and Saturday night for patrons who live within 15 km. “It’s such a great service to have because you don’t have to worry about how you’ll get home,” said Nohr. Also unique to Jimy Macs is its Drive-Thru Liquor Store, which is open seven-days-a-week from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. The store offers 10 per cent off all a liquor purchases over $100, free bag of ice with purchase, free two-litre bottle of pop with any 40 oz or 60 oz purchase of liquor. Whether you’re looking for a night in, or a night out with friends, Jimy Macs has all bases covered!

To err is humorous Langley’s Bard in the Valley presents The Comedy of Errors on the Spirit Square stage in Douglas Park, beginning Aug. 8 BRENDA ANDERSON Times Reporter
hat’s more fun — and causes more chaos and confusion — than a pair of separated identical twins? That would be two pairs of twins, in the capable hands of the Bard. And that is just what William Shakespeare has given audiences with The Comedy of Errors, this summer’s offering from Langley’s Bard in the Valley theatre company. The play about a pair of wealthy aristocratic brothers and their sibling servants — who wind up in the same city after each was separated years earlier from his identical twin during a storm at sea — will run on the Spirit Square stage in Douglas Park in August. And, once again, it will move to the International Festival in Willoughby at the Langley Events Centre for two performances. Directed by Langley’s Darcy J. Knopp, the fourth annual BIV
production features performers from New Westminster and south of the Fraser — from Surrey and Cloverdale to Abbotsford and Chilliwack — with seven Langley actors in the mix. For two years, Knopp was one of those performers — acting in the first two Bard in the Valley productions in 2010 and ’11. After taking last summer off, he is excited to be returning to take charge of this year’s production. “I was looking for a chance to do a show in Langley,” said Knopp, who now calls Chilliwack home. “Diane (Gendron, the show’s producer) mentioned they were looking for someone to direct.” He submitted a proposal for The Comedy of Errors — one of the first plays by the 16th century English playwright he ever saw performed. “Everyone has a favourite,” said Knopp. “The Comedy of Errors is mine. It’s a romp through the bewitching City of Ephesus. “Sure, it’s ridiculous and trots the border of preposterous,
Miranda GATHERCOLE/Langley Times
After performing in Bard in the Valley’s first two summer productions, Langley’s Darcy J. Knopp returns to direct the Shakespeare theatre company’s latest offering, The Comedy of Errors. but think of the best adventure you have ever had; would you describe it any other way? It’s ... guaranteed to make you happy you spent a beautiful summer evening at the outdoor theatre.” While a lot of playwrights have historically used their work to comment on political and social issues of their day — which often mean little to modern audiences — Shakespeare aimed his quill squarely at the timeless subject of human nature and all its
foibles. People are people, and after more than 400 years, the playwright’s themes still resonate with audiences. “I would hope that seeing a show set in a modern (way) with energetic actors will help dispel the myth that Shakespeare is inaccessible. It’s pretty lighthearted. It should be fun,” said Knopp. Because one of its goals is to offer lighthearted summer fare, BIV has so far stuck with
comedies, rather than venture into Shakespeare’s more tragic offerings. Previous shows include A Midsummer Night’s Dream, As You Like It and Twelfth Night. Bard in the Valley is all about people bringing a picnic and a blanket to the park on a bright, sunny day and being carried off to another place and time by the performance. But choosing the right time and place is always a bit of a gamble. That’s particularly true of Knopp’s production. “One of the things that comes up in the play is that everyone is obsessed with money and being paid,” said the director. “A lot of the characters are very wealthy. I thought, ‘where do wealthy people go and play?’” That’s how he settled upon a Monte Carlo-style casino as the perfect place to set his play. The location adds a different flavour than the typical use of period costumes and sets, said Knopp. After his proposal was given the green light by the selection committee, Knopp put out the call for a cast that could bring the unlikely story to life in a believable way. “I tried to get actors who were similar in appearance and style,” he said.

“They could be seen as twins even though they behave quite differently from each other. “They have different upbringings and influences.” That’s been part of the fun, he said, finding out how each actor will interpret his character, based on their respective histories. Not that their work is entirely unfamiliar to him. “A lot of my contacts from university turned out to audition.” Taking on the role of Antipholus of Syracus is
Abbotsford’s JD Dueckman. The part of Antipholus of Ephesus is played by Chilliwack’s Tim Howe. The other set of twins, both named Dromio, are played by New Westminster’s Lionel Rust and Chilliwack’s Luke Stevens. BIV performers do tend to change from one production to the next because it’s summer and a lot of student-actors are working to pay for school, said Knopp, who earned his theatre diploma at University of the Fraser Valley’s Chilliwack campus. Shakespeare in the park is a big commitment during those
months, he added. Backstage, meanwhile, there are still a number of familiar faces hard at work on the production team. “It’s helpful to have them there,” Knopp said. Among those working behind the scenes is Ron Williams. The Comedy of Errors’ technical director was one of Knopp’s high school teachers. And the director is enjoying those connections. “Doing a show in my hometown is kind of a big deal to me,” he said. Given a choice between directing and acting, which
does Knopp prefer? It depends on whether you want the power or the glory, he laughed. “I think one makes you better at the other.” The Comedy of Errors hits the Spirit Square stage in Douglas Park Aug. 8-11 and Aug. 15-18. Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening performances begin at 7 p.m. and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17 will include a presentation of scenes in the afternoon in conjunction with Langley’s Arts Alive Festival. It will also be performed during the International
Festival in Willoughby Park, next to Langley Events Centre, on Aug. 24 and 25. Saturday’s performance is at 6 p.m. and Sunday’s show is at 1 p.m. “We are delighted, once again, to offer a Shakespearean play that is fast-paced and filled with fun,” said Gendron. “Admission is even less than it was in Shakespearean times – it’s free – thanks to the support from our generous sponsors. “It’s a fun outdoor theatre experience for the whole family and a perfect introduction for children to live theatre, and to Shakespeare.”

Exhibition duo offers a study in contrasts The walls of the Fort Gallery will be a study in contrasts, as two very different shows run simultaneously, beginning July 31. Robert Wakefield’s masculine, bold, heavily textured and structured “Signs of the Times” series will show side by side with Bette Laughy’s lush, sensual and essentially feminine, “Irises” series. Influenced by the Impressionists and Canada’s Group of Seven, Wakefield works in oils. “I love the texture of the oil paint when applied to the canvas, and how it can be manipulated,” he said. “The impressionists and the Group of Seven’s use of bold colour and texture always elicited strong emotions, and a desire to make my own mark as an artist,” added Wakefield, who uses lots of paint in pure rich tones, laying colour upon colour to capture the beauty of a landscape scene. Inspired while reading about the demolition of the Ridge Theatre, Wakefield began thinking about the iconic signs throughout the Lower Mainland that have disappeared over the years. “With over 19,000 signs in the 1950s, Vancouver was a sign mecca, with reportedly more than almost any city in the world,” Wakefield said. This series is Wakefield’s take on some of those that have gone, and some that still survive. For Laughy, the exhibit marks her first solo show in two years, having decided to give herself time to play without pressure. She found the new pan pastels and the suede board that was invented for them. “It was like coming home, and I have found the materials I want to work with for the foreseeable future,” she said. Using other chalk pastels with the pans produces an effect that resonates with her. “I am in love with the process, the sensual feel of the interplay between medium and ground, subject and ground.” While there is some tension, Laughy says, “there is no stress while working with them”. The two shows run at the Fort Gallery from July 31 to Aug. 15. The opening reception will be open to the public, and will be held on Friday, Aug. 2, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., with both artists in attendance. The Fort Gallery at 9048 Glover Rd. is open Wednesday to Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Visit the gallery’s website at www.fortgallery.ca.

Prospera Credit Union’s annual Langley outdoor movie night returns on Friday, Aug. 9 in Willoughby Community Park (next to the Langley Events Centre). Families are invited to attend the free evening of family entertainment on a gigantic screen. The movie begins at dusk. In co-operation with Fresh Air Cinema, they will be screening a prehistoric comedy adventure that follows the world’s first family as they embark on a journey of a lifetime, when the cave that
has always shielded them from danger is destroyed. In support of the local community, they will accept donations on behalf of their charity partner, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Langley. There will also be a bouncy castle and a chance to meet Prosbeara before the show. “We’ve had a great response to our Prospera Cinema Under the Stars program from the communities we serve, with many families telling us how much they enjoy our free movie nights, said Bruce Howell, president and CEO of Pros-
pera Credit Union. “Even the teenagers love to come out and bring along their friends, so it really is fun for the whole family. “This is one of the most affordable ways to get your family out to enjoy a summer evening together,” said Mary Reeves, Executive Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Langley. “And thanks to Prospera Credit Union, all proceeds from the movie night support a great program that really makes a difference for children right here in Langley.
Celebrated artists’ work on show at new Fort Langley Studio The Fort Langley Studio is hosting Chris MacClure and Marilyn Hurst for a one week exhibition running July 30 to Aug. 6.

‘An awesome experience’
GARY AHUJA Times Sports
When someone lives on the edge of a golf course, you might think they would spend their time on the greens working on their game. But Alex Gulka is more at ease on the water. “Feeling that boat move on the water is an awesome experience,” the 18-year-old said. He was sitting on his back deck, which borders the Belmont Golf Course in Fort Langley. “When the boat is moving, it is pretty incredible. You get that glide and you feel really powerful.” For the past four years, Gulka has rowed as part of the Fort Langley Rowing Club. He is also one of the first members of the Fort Langley Youth Rowing Society. He got his introduction to the sport through a Learn to Row program at the club. “I wasn’t really into sports and wasn’t exactly the fittest,” he said. His fitness level was down due more to his pickiness as a eater than poor eating habits. But he has stuck with the sport and earlier this month ( July 8 to 13) was in Oklahoma City with Rowing Canada. The Canadian side was
Langley’s Alex Gulka won a silver and two bronze medals in Oklahoma City while representing Canada. training alongside their American and Mexican counterparts as part of a high development camp. It wrapped up with two days of racing and Gulka returned with a silver medal in the quad and a pair of bronze in the single 2 km event and in the eights. “The other countries had been training for at least a couple of weeks together whereas we had just four days,” he said. With the competitive season now over, Gulka will spend the next few weeks training
as well as helping out at the Learn to Row programs. He hopes to continue rowing while he attends the University of Toronto — to study engineering — and isn’t ruling out representing his country down the road. “It is not something I want to lose, especially now that I have gotten up to this level,” he said. “Short term, no, but in the long term, an international event is something I would definitely like to work towards.”

The Langley Rams are off to a strong start in the 2013 B.C. Junior Football Conference season, after shutting out the visiting Kamloops Broncos 51-0 in their home opener at McLeod Park on Saturday. The team enters the season as defending league champions, having won the 2012 Cullen Cup against the Vancouver Island Raiders last October. Although the score in game one looks impressive, there is still a lot of improvement needed, said new head coach Ted Kirby. “You’re always happy when you win obviously, but the score is really secondary,” he said. “We have a lot of things we have to do better and we have a lot of work ahead of us.” That includes avoiding unnecessary penalties and finishing drives, which were both weak spots last game, he said. “It was a great start — but that’s exactly

what it was, it was a start and we have got to continue to improve, we really do. “We can’t be making mistakes like that throughout the year or we won’t be taking wins like that.” If anything, the game offered an opportunity for coaches to see which players may stand out this season. “My expectations were to see the guys in a true game and see how they were going to perform when adversity hits,” Kirby said. “One of the benefits of that score is that you get to play everyone on the team and see who’s game ready.” One such player was Nathan Lund, who was named the McKinnon Career Coaching Player of the Game. “What I was proud of is that I always talk about being a balanced football team, and when I look at it statistically, I think our passing and our rushing were within 30 to 40 yards of each other, I think our special teams performed and I think we played all three facets of the game relatively well,” Kirby said. And with nearly 70 per cent of the roster returning players from last season, there is great cohesion in the group. “There are a lot of returning guys which is really helpful because they know the system, but we have also brought in a few new guys,” Kirby said. “To be quite honest, that first game was nice because they’re starting to see how we are as a family and how we operate and are starting to understand the process a little better. And hopefully that will improve for game two so those little mistakes we are making will be less and less.” The Rams now take on the Westshore Rebels at 4 p.m. at McLeod Park on Saturday (Aug. 3).
