Hair’s to the Apprentices

Jeep driver rams cop shop – twice Aldergrove Star

Langley RCMP is seeking the public’s assistance with their investigation into a hit and run involving the Aldergrove Community Police Office. On Monday, Nov. 11, police were advised a male driver had just driven his older green Jeep Cherokee into the east side of the building just prior to 12:30 p.m. The complainant stated the vehicle drove head on into the building, then backed up and struck the building a second time. The male driver is described as being in his 20s with black hair, no facial hair or glasses. He didn’t exit the vehicle, so no clothing description was obtained. The Cherokee was described as older with a push bar on the front. After the crashes, a female joined the suspect in the vehicle and they drove off. The impact of the vehicle caused a hole in the side of the brick building that ultimately caused further damage inside the building by pushing a stud wall and breaking the drywall. Damage is estimated between $2,500 and $3,000. Police are working with ICBC to identify potential suspect vehicles registered in British Columbia. Anyone with information that would assist police with this investigation is asked to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200. Should you need to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers: 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Pipeline concerns aired By FRANK BUCHOLTZ Aldergrove Star

Despite a short organizing window, almost 100 people attended a community meeting Thursday on Kinder Morgan’s plans to put its second oil pipeline through environmentally-sensitive land just west of Fort Langley, near the Salmon River. The meeting was organized by Byron Smith, whose 31-acre farm would be on the route. He and several other people in attendance have been approached by Kinder Morgan agents about doing surveys for the route. While Kinder Morgan plans to build most of the pipeline from Edmonton to Burnaby alongside its existing Trans Mountain pipe line, which opened in 1954, it will divert from the original route just south of Fort Langley, near the Belmont Golf Course. This is to avoid twinning the pipeline through Walnut Grove. While the new route has not been finalized, the company is expected to file a formal plan, which will include a 150-metre wide right of way for the new line, on Dec. 16. The new pipeline is expected to go north from the existing line to the CN tracks. Kinder Morgan plans to then build the new line along the CN tracks from Fort Langley to CN’s Thornton Yard in

Bradner residents oppose cell tower proposal By KURT LANGMANN Aldergrove Star

A proposed cell phone tower at 6738 Bradner Road has raised concerns for residents of the west Abbotsford community. Miriam Helter, who lives on Bradner Road, told city council on Monday that much of their community is opposed to the building of a tower. The 50 metre proposed tower would be built by Rogers Communications within a 20 metre by 20 metre fenced compound. Compounds for towers smaller than 10 metre by 10 metre are a permitted use in the Agricultural Land Reserve, but because the proposal calls for more space, it will require approval from the Agricultural Land Commission.

A report from city staff states that following a public information meeting on the proposal, they received 112 comment sheets. The report states that 59 per cent were in support of the installation and 41 per cent were opposed. But Helter said much more of the community is opposed than recorded by the city. She said she canvassed her neighbours and found that at 113 properties within a 1 kilometre radius of the site, she received signatures of opposition from 89 – indicating that 79 per cent were opposed. She said residents are concerned about the potential health effects of cell towers, adding that there are already cell towers in Bradner on Marsh McCormick Road. Peter Leathley, munici-

pal affairs specialist at Rogers Communications, told council that cell towers are regulated by Health Canada and there is no conclusive evidence of negative health effects. He said the tower will address community concerns about poor cell phone coverage in the Bradner area. He added that the height of the tower is intended to allow another cell phone provider to add on to the structure, mitigating the need to build more towers in the future. Council had the option of forwarding the application to the ALC with a comment either supporting or opposing the project, or providing no comment. They opted to forward the application with no comment and the proposal will now be considered by the ALC.

Hard line on derelict properties called for Seasonal Local Produce Aldergrove Star

The Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce has called on the City of Langley to take a harder line on derelict properties, saying they discourage investment and devalue surrounding property. The proposal is meant to be a proactive approach, Langley Chamber president Kristine Simpson told Langley City council Nov. 2, as she asked them to consider taking “two actions” with respect to derelict buildings. First, she said, the GLCC is seeking the City’s support for the BC Chamber’s proposal to amend the province’s Community Charter. The proposed amendment would provide municipalities with more options to address the issue of derelict buildings in the community. The Chamber’s second request is that the City take a more aggressive approach in utilizing the existing tools available to them within local bylaws. Vacant properties which aren’t properly maintained create health and safety concerns, discourage investment in the community, and drag down the value of surrounding properties, Simpson told council. Currently, the Community Charter limits municipalities to providing incentives for building owners to maintain empty properties but does not provide for any punitive recourse when they don’t, she added. “The charter allows for incentives, such as revitalizations and tax exemptions but does not allow

municipalities to penalize owners of derelict properties, except when there are concerns of health, safety or protection of people. A harder line does not necessarily equal a heavy-handed approach, said Simpson. “This is not a recommendation focused on unnecessary penalties when a property has become temporarily vacant, but rather to give municipalities the necessary tools to encourage action where an owner chooses to let a property remain derelict for their own benefit at the expense of neighbouring properties and the community.” Rather than simply endorse the Chamber’s proposal, however, council members asked Simpson to explain more clearly what she meant by derelict. “I’d like some clarification,” said Councillor Dave Hall. “You would like the provincial government to define derelict? Do you have a definition? If something isn’t a health and safety concern, it comes down to aesthetics.” If a mall has five vacant premises and two in operation, but it’s not a health and safety concern, does that constitute a derelict commercial building? asked Hall. Simpson said the bylaw would have to be applied within the context of the surrounding properties. If all the buildings in the area are of a similar age and appearance it is different than if there is one building that stands out as an eyesore, she said. “The definition necessarily has to be grey,” she said.

“We have to determine what is derelict and where do we draw the line,” said Councillor Jack Arnold. She said the measure is meant to be proactive rather than reactive, so that if it becomes an issue, the City is ready and able to take action as quickly as possible. Council decided to refer the matter to staff for further information. It’s better to have a policy in place ahead of time, Simpson replied. Then, if a problem arises, it’s not personal, it’s policy. “Defining derelict is a challenge,” agreed Councillor Teri James. A building with smashed windows, overgrown property or covered in graffiti would qualify, she added. Simpson acknowledged that derelict homes — which have been an issue for the City in areas slated for, but not yet under, redevelopment — also have an effect on a community’s overall appearance and its property values. Simpson gave a similar presentation to Langley Township council at its Oct. 28 meeting. Township council voted 8-1 to endorse the B.C. Chamber of Commerce call for an amendment to the Community Charter, to give municipalities the power to pass get-tough regulations to deal with owners of derelict properties. Councillor Bob Long voted against the measure because he wanted council to refer the chamber proposal to Township staff, who are currently preparing a report on the problem of abandoned houses.

VICTORIA – Reaction was swift and scattered after the “framework agreement” on new oil pipelines announced last week by B.C. Premier Christy Clark and Alberta Premier Alison Redford. First, here’s what it doesn’t mean. “B.C. blinked,” according to one Toronto commentator, based on the popular notion that B.C. gave up its claim to a share of Alberta’s resource royalties from heavy oil. Clark never made such a claim, so it would be difficult to give it up. Her often-repeated condition of a “fair share” of revenues from any new oil pipelines is purposely vague, but after repeated protests from Alberta, Clark clarified as far back as last June that provincial royalties are not on the table. There is no constitutional way to make such a demand, a point Redford has made several times. NDP leader Adrian Dix and the usual chorus of professional protesters claimed that Clark flip-flopped, opposing the Enbridge Northern Gateway proposal before the election and then embracing it once she was re-elected. This is also inaccurate. Clark’s five conditions were set out before the May election, demanding approval by a federal environmental review, “world-leading” spill prevention and response capability on land and at sea, meeting legal requirements to con-

Untangling oil pipeline politics

sult and share benefits with aboriginal communities, and the undefined “fair share” for B.C. Clark said numerous times during the campaign that the conditions have not been met, and made pessimistic noises about Northern Gateway, but she very carefully did not campaign against it. The B.C. Liberal platform also endorsed a Kitimat-area oil refinery proposed by this newspaper’s owner, and Clark repeatedly referred to that sort of industrial expansion as one of the potential “fair share” components for B.C. The B.C. Liberal government made its opposition to Northern Gateway “as currently proposed” official on May 31, two weeks after the election, in its final submission to the federal review panel. If Clark had wanted to jump on the anti-pipeline bandwagon for political gain, that move could have been made earlier. NDP environment critic Spencer Chandra Herbert said the B.C. government has taken the position that more oil will reach the West Coast, by rail if not by pipeline. I’m not sure if or when that claim was made, but it’s true that rail shipments are already permitted. Here’s what Redford and Clark agreed on. Redford accepts B.C.’s five conditions, provincial royalties excluded, and Clark endorsed Redford’s proposed “Canadian Energy

Strategy,” which B.C. rejected last year. A draft of the strategy released last summer contains no specifics on how it would facilitate a pipeline project from Alberta to B.C. It talks about developing Canada’s energy reserves and at the same time somehow reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and promises a final version next spring. Oh, and Quebec refuses to participate. Ottawa has sole jurisdiction over inter-provincial projects such as Northern Gateway and the proposal by Kinder Morgan Canada to expand the 60-year-old Trans Mountain pipeline to Burnaby and refineries in Washington. If there is to be some extra revenue for B.C. from oil traffic, it could theoretically take the form of a toll on pipelines. Redford pointed out the problem with that idea in her speech to an energy forum in Vancouver last week. She noted that 42 per cent of B.C. natural gas is piped through Alberta to markets. If B.C. can toll Alberta oil, the same could be done with B.C. gas. None of B.C.’s five conditions has yet been met. Legally, they don’t have to be, except for the one about accommodating aboriginal title.

Editor: I was very disappointed to hear that the transit bus extension to Abbotsford-Chilliwack was not passed at the city council meeting. Give your heads a shake! There is no demand? We have lived in Abbotsford for nearly 12 years and have been listening to the advocates for bus service to the Lower Mainland all that time. The business I represent has held six annual conferences in Abbotsford and each year we hear from our attendees or would-be attendees that if we held it closer to the city they would attend, but they can’t come because there is no way to come if they don’t drive. An affordable, reliable transit option would improve attendance at our hockey games, conventions and entertainment events. Last July we had one brave soul who did try the Aldergrove connector. It took him four hours to come from the UBC area to Abbotsford. I doubt that many have the stomach for that ride. Personally, we have several family members who were very excited to think that they might be able to come from Vancouver to Abbotsford without having to resort to Greyhound. I’m sure that many would love to step out of their cars and onto the bus, if they had a reliable service. How many from Abbotsford take the train from Mission to Vancouver? The few times I have ridden on it, it was full. No demand? Simply because there hasn’t been any hope! Please reconsider the possibility. Colleen Giesbrecht, Abbotsford

CO2 a fraction of atmosphere Editor: Re: Science loses ground to superstition (B.C. Views, Oct. 2). Tom Fletcher is, in my view, one of BC’s most under-appreciated commentators. This column sums up one of our world’s strangest phenomena – superstition increases in lockstep with the increase in human knowledge. Fletcher focuses on our endless climate-change conflict, but you can add debates such as ‘smart meters causing cancer,’ ‘vaccines causing autism,’ ‘genetic engineering bad/organic good’ and on and on. Toss in the anti-coal and anti-pipeline crowd, and you have a mass of ignorance that boggles the mind. Never have so many known so little about basic mathematics, physics, chemistry, history and so forth. To illustrate my point, consider that the Earth’s atmosphere is 77 per cent nitrogen and 21 per cent oxygen. That leaves two per cent for all the trace gases including carbon dioxide – currently .04 of one per cent. How can a reasonable person argue that carbon dioxide is the primary driver of climate change? Fletcher also notes the genetic engineering (GE) debate at the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention. GE offers some of the best solutions to hunger afflicting much of the Earth’s human population. In spite of the potential benefits, nearly half of our municipal leaders buy into the anti-GE hysteria. If you listened to Vancouver city council, we should all be living in yurts and scratching, along with our chickens, a living from backyard organic gardens. Mind boggling! Francis Patrick Jordan, White Rock

Biblical destruction of planet Editor: Re: “Science loses ground to superstition,” (B.C. Views, Oct. 2.) It’s truly bewildering to see such a headline above yet even more of Tom Fletcher’s demagoguery towards David Suzuki – one who’s an ardent believer and follower of actual science. If it’s actual science that Fletcher truly seeks, why does he conveniently overlook the blatant anti-science thinking and frightening policy of his bird-of-a-feather Prime Minister Stephen Harper? As one who’s spent some early years consuming fundamentalist Christian preaching and teaching, including the evangelical sort towards which Harper and many of his MPs claim to be devout, it’s clear that such theology does not at all concern itself with a healthy, pristine Earth eco-system. For, according to the Book of Revelations, Earth is to eventually be laid complete waste for a considerable period of time – if not permanently (depending on Biblical interpretation). So, really, why worry about an unhealthy state of the planet’s environment – especially when there are so many jobs to be had? Frank G. Sterle, Jr., White Rock

For some people, the disorder is fatal. There is currently no cure. Each year, Township firefighters volunteer to help improve quality of life for those living with muscular dystrophy by conducting a boot drive at local businesses. Since 1994, they have raised more than $191,000 and this year alone the crews collected almost $28,000.

“Over the past year, the Township of Langley has exceeded expectations in fundraising and generating great awareness in the community and local media for Muscular Dystrophy Canada,” said Jeannine Woolley, fundraising and volunteer coordinator for B.C. and the Yukon. “Last year, the Township forged exceptionally strong community partnerships with local businesses and the people of the Township, which is evidence of their true commitment to this

cause.” Capt. Peter Taylor, chair of the Township fire department’s muscular dystrophy campaign, is grateful to Langley residents who always give what they can to make the boot drive a success and to the business that allow them to stage the fundraiser. “Township firefighters are very proud to be a part of this giving and generous community,” Taylor said. “Together we are making a difference is so many lives.”

Welcome to the driver’s seat

Established in 1902, Cadillac is one of the oldest luxury brands, and continues to be General Motor’s flagship in terms of refinement and technology. Zack Spencer

The CTS model is a lighter car, made of high tensile steel. It is stiffer, safer, handles better, and above all, is more efficient.

ZACK SPENCER

Question

Cadillac in the rear-view mirror of the European premium brands 2014 Cadillac CTS One auto trend that shows little sign of waning is the move towards more luxury or premium cars by manufacturers and consumers alike. As baby boomers age, they have earned the nicer things in life, and the offspring of baby boomers are getting used to the finer things in life, so more automakers are moving upscale. The Europeans do luxury and performance better than most and the Japanese luxury brands have been putting in their time to becoming a real force. But long before the Japanese, there have always been the American luxury brands, with many firsts in features and technology. Established in 1902, Cadillac is one of the oldest, along with Mercedes-Benz, and continues to be General Motor’s flagship in terms of refinement and technology. Looks The smaller Cadillac ATS was released a year ago and went on to win the North American Car of the Year award. General Motors has taken that platform and elongated it to produce the lightest mid-sized car in its class. It’s a full 173kg lighter than the benchmark BMW 5-Series it competes against, and 34kg lighter than the outgoing car. A lighter car, made of

ELIGIBLE OWNERS

Verdict The price of the CTS ranges from about $51,000 for the base model to $66,000 for the top premium trim level. The Vsport, high performance model is priced at almost $75,000. The Cadillac CTS is not an inexpensive car, but it offers many features like standard heated and vented leather seats, Bose stereo and push button start even on the base model. Compared to some of the other mid-sized luxury sedans it is less expensive, plus it is a worthy car for any driving enthusiast.

Perpetual Driving Self-Betterment: Because You’re Worth It B.C. racecar driver Cherie Storms told me she was taking an advanced driver training course to appease her father’s wishes. She’d been putting it off since teenagedom. That said, her father is an accomplished racecar driver and a proficient motorist, so you could argue it was an inevitability. But she had to find the desire in herself first. What

gears on a manual transmission without jerking the car, or parallel parking your sedan without curbing the rims. Driving is so much more. I understand that this mode of transportation is a necessity for many. And it’s something done out of convenience rather than love. Kind of like laundry or grouting the bathroom floor tiles. Then again, for others, it’s a passion. Myself included. Taking a specialized course, whether it’s a track day or a race school isn’t just for wannabe racers. It’s for everyone. And we can all learn if we have an open mind. We read to keep our mind sharp. We walk/run/ work out to keep our bodies active. We sleep to keep our bodies functioning. Why should driving be any different? Why shouldn’t we actively engage in making ourselves better drivers? Every time you get behind the wheel of a vehicle, there’s a possibility you can change your life or the lives of others. We might not think too much about it, but operating a vehicle is a huge responsibility. Poor driving habits, not shoulder checking, not using your signals, driving in the left lane when you’re not passing are minor details in the grand scheme of things, but have a large impact. It’s never too late to refresh the basics and then pick up a few new good habits. For example, if you look at any of the top athletes in their sport, they’re training most of the time. They’re trying to perfect their craft, even when they’re at the top of it. I doubt Sebastian Vettel slums around in his down time, even after winning his fourth consecutive Formula1 world championship. Sure, he gets a break, but he’s constantly training to be faster and stronger. In another interview, I chatted with Izod Indy racecar driver Simona de Silvestro. She tells me that there’s really no such thing as an “off-season.” She says she trains all year long. In fact, she trains harder when she’s not always behind the wheel of a car to prepare for the upcoming races. If the pros do it, we should to. Some of the most fun I’ve had behind the wheel of a car has been at a driving school. Whether it was the three-day racing school at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca with the Skip Barber program, or a track day at the Mission Raceway with Morrisport Advanced Driving, or even a track program close to you, it’s a win-win. If we’re all safer drivers then the chances of accidents are minimized and we can keep our vehicles dent-free longer. And avoid going through insurance claims. The few hundred dollars it takes to enrol is of infinite worth in the long run. Alexandra.straub@drivewaybc.ca Twitter.com/cargirlsgarage

Totems Valley champs, head for Provincials Aldergrove Star

The Aldergrove Community Secondary School Totems Senior Boys Soccer team made a miraculous comeback on Thursday, Nov. 7 to win the Fraser Valley AA soccer championships. The Totems started the game very well, pressuring their opponents Arch Bishop Carney with their aggressive play and quick ball movement. But Carney, who were last year’s Fraser Valley Champions and B.C. Finalists survived the initial onslaught from the Totems and then took control of play, chiseling out a 2-0 lead. Things were looking bleak for the host side Totems. But 10 minutes before half time Ryan Witowich knocked in a goal from a goalmouth scramble to close the gap to 2-1. The second half saw the Aldergrove team get stronger and stronger with each minute of play and at about the 20 minute mark another goalmouth scrambled resulted in four Aldergrove players converging on the ball within the 6-yard area. The result was total pandemonium when the ball crossed the goaline to tie the match at 2-2. Fans and players went nuts with excitement now that the game was within their

opponents all season, however, the Carney keeper was playing very well and cutting out all scoring attempts.

Then with only 15 seconds left on regulation time Aldergrove was awarded a corner kick. Joel Waterman knocked the ball to the back post where his teammate Gurmaan Jahj had placed himself and went up to head the ball into the back of the Arch Bishop Carney net. Again the players and fans went berzerk with excitement, now knowing that this could be the year ACSS finally gets a soccer banner for their gym wall. With both teams frantically trying to gain possession after the restart and Aldergrove hoping the clock would run out, Arch Bishop Carney rushed to attack the Totems net to try to salvage a tie to take the game into overtime. Two minutes of extra time were played under very anxious conditions and when the final whistle went there was one happy host team and a very dejected visiting side. Congratulations to the Totems Senior Boys Soccer team on their Fraser Valley title and best wishes as they next move into Provincial play, hosted at Burnaby Lake Sport Complex, Nov. 18-20. “Many thanks to all the friends, family, and staff at ACSS for supporting the boys, it really added to the day’s

Langley United credits LTPD for record registration year Aldergrove Star

If you notice a lot more yellow soccer jerseys than usual around Langley on Saturdays and Sundays this fall, it’s because there are a lot more. Langley United Soccer Association (LUSA) has announced its final registration total for fall and winter soccer at a club record 2138 boys and girls. “With our expanding registration in the past three years, Langley United is now the largest club in the Fraser Valley, and quickly becoming a major soccer town in BC,” says Langley United president Dave Kasper. “It’s been a banner registration season and Langley United is happy to announce record registration of over 2,100 children and more than 200 teams playing soccer every weekend in Langley,” notes Kasper. “What’s most exciting is that our club’s commitment over the last few years to the entry level grassroots age groups between ages four and

nine has resulted in a 42 percent increase in registration in our grassroots since 2008 to a record 1277 youngsters. This is the future of the club and it is an incredible base for Langley United going forward.”  Kasper attributes the increase in children playing soccer to the club’s decision three years ago to fully implement the Canadian Soccer Association’s Long-Term Player Development (LTPD) program. LTPD guidelines focus on making the sport more fun while at the same time implementing age-appropriate practice time recommendations that program more soccer each week. Langley United has also instituted a two-tier streaming system so that kids play with kids at their same level. The result is that games are closer and players get more time on the ball playing with kids around their own skill level. The end result is fun every weekend.  “LTPD ensures the kids have fun playing soc-

cer and they don’t want to leave the sport,” adds Kasper. “Overall, kids seem to be enjoying soccer more, and as a result

they want to play again the next year. Simply put, we are retaining a lot more boys and girls in soccer year after year.”

langley events centre Coming Events

Langley Township is full of wildlife habitat and people share the area with animals including bears, cougars, and coyotes. Residents throughout Langley need not be continually on alert, but action can be taken to deter wild animals if they are spotted in your area. Parents should teach children what to do if they encounter these animals, especially if they play by themselves in areas that wildlife frequent or have been seen in the past. To help people coexist with creatures that are simply trying to survive but can be dangerous if provoked, the following information is offered:

Bears: During the winter months, bears are in hibernation and do not interact with humans for three or four months.

Cougars: can have kittens throughout the year and family groups can be seen at any time. Cougars survive on natural food sources found in the wild, primarily deer. Cougar attacks on humans are highly unlikely. However, if you encounter a cougar, do not run. Pick children up immediately and talk to the cougar in a confident voice. Act big by waving sticks and branches, and back away slowly while still facing the cougar. If it attacks, fight back.

Coyotes: have the largest population of potentially dangerous wildlife in the area and can be seen year round, even in residential areas. Family groups have been regularly seen around Langley. Coyotes are bold and easily lose their natural fear of people. Never feed a coyote. If you encounter a coyote, scare it off by making loud noise or throwing something at it to make it afraid. Never ignore a coyote. If it continues to approach, do not run. Maintain eye contact, pick up small pets or children, and slowly move to an area of increased activity.

Keep pet food inside. Garbage is the biggest attraction for bears so keep it secure and inaccessible to wildlife. Do not leave garbage cans

out overnight: keep them in the house, a locked garage, or secured outbuilding that cannot be broken into by large, smart bears. Put them out only on the morning of collection. If you are worried about odour, keep garbage in the freezer until collection day. Feel free to use bird feeders in the winter months. Birds need nutrition from seeds during this time of year, and the bird food will not attract bears, as they are away hibernating.

In Agricultural Areas: Protect your investment by keeping fences secure and free of damage that predators can use for access. Coyotes burrow, so ensure surrounding netting goes deep into the ground. Be vigilant with livestock and keep them secure. Farm animals are usually killed at night, so bring them inside in the evening. It is an offence to attract wildlife into a residential neighbourhood. Those who do not take steps to deter bears and other wild creatures can face a fine of up to $575. To report poachers or polluters or if you have a problem with wildlife call: Report All Poachers and Polluters (RAPP) 1.877.952.7277

The 2013 Tsumura Basketball Invitational will make its return to the Langley Events Centre later this month and will once again feature some of the top boys and girls high school basketball players in the province.

Games will be played on Saturday, Nov. 30 and Sunday, Dec. 1 on LEC Centre Court. The selection of the girls teams was based on Howard Tsumuraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pre Season Top Ten rankings released at the end of last season. On the girls side, the top six teams, and eight of the top ten, will face off on Sunday, Dec. 1.

Team BC wins game one at Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s U18 National Aldergrove Star

Team BC won their first game at the 2013 Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s U18 National Championship with a 3â&#x20AC;&#x201C;2 overtime victory against Team Quebec. Sarah Potomak of Aldergrove scored the overtime game winner. A pair of sisters from Aldergrove and another player from Langley are going for gold as part of Team B.C. at the national womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s U18 hockey championships in Calgary. Sarah and Amy Potomak â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who play for the Pursuit of Excellence program in Kelowna â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and Chelsea Wilson, of the Fraser Valley Phantom, are on the 20-person roster. It was the opening day for the event that ran November 6-10 at the Markin MacPhail Centre in Calgary, Alberta. After a scoreless first period and being outshot 12-9, Team BC was the first on the board less than 30 seconds into the

second period thanks to a goal by Hannah Miller (North Vancouver). Midway into the second, Team Quebec tied the game at one (1) but it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last long as Brie Bellerive (North Vancouver) buried a goal from a Micah Hart (Saanichton) pass. Team BC led 2-1 heading into the final period of play. Just over two minutes into the third, Quebec tied the game, which ended up forcing a five (5) minute, 4-on-4 overtime. With just over a minute remaining in overtime, Sarah Potomak (Aldergrove) found the back of the net to give Team BC the win.
