MICHELLE SERDAR, 42, IS FACING SECOND DEGREE MURDER CHARGES IN MARCH 2011 DEATH OF KWANTLEN ELDER BR EN D A AN D E R SO N Tim e s Re po r t e r

An arrest has been made in the 2011 murder of a Kwantlen First Nations elder. The Integrated Homicide investigation Team announced Tuesday that Michelle Marie Serdar, 42, has been charged with second-degree murder. She was arrested in Quebec City after an extensive investigation and will be transported to B.C. to face the charges. She is charged in the murder of George Antone, 71, whose body was discovered in his McMillan Island home on March 7, 2011. Antone had been shot to death. An extensive police investigation took place after Antone’s death, and there was a lot of concern among the Kwantlen First Nation people about the fact that a suspect had not been apprehended. At a police news conference Tuesday, Kwantlen member Tumia Knott spoke about the tragedy. “The family and community of Kwantlen continue to mourn the loss of our beloved elder George Antone. “We wish for closure for the family; we pray that the truth will be revealed and for justice to prevail. “Our Kwantlen family and George’s family are strong and we are determined to stay strong and walk together through this. We pray for justice and resolution. “We also wish to thank the investigators for their long and diligent efforts in this matter. “We look at today as one

step closer for closure on this matter for our family who have been through so much. “We await the judicial process to begin, as we continue to remember and mourn the loss of our dear elder.” Not long before Antone’s death, former Langley Times photographer John Gordon interviewed the elder in his home for a feature which appeared in Sideroads magazine. Antone lived on McMillan Island until he was seven years old. He was taken to a residential school for the next decade, living far from home. The first residential facility was on Cooper Island, midway between Ucluelet and Bamfield. Later, he would be moved to one in Sechelt. Life was tough for the children in residential homes, Antone told Gordon. Some children tried to escape by swimming for shore. Most drowned, and when

their parents came to visit them, they were told that their children had run away. “The food was terrible,” Antone recalled. So bad, in fact, that as a 16-year-old he stood almost six feet tall but weighed only 127 pounds. “It was real sad the way they treated us,” he said. “We still got strapped every day, it was a very sad part of our lives, that residential school. My son got to go to school in Langley. He was lucky.” The children were forbidden from speaking their own language. “They told us to talk like them. We were called savages.” When he finally left, he became a logger and fisherman. “I still fish,” he said in the interview. He praised Chief Marilyn Gabriel in the interview. “Marilyn helps us when she can. She’s a good chief, she is making life better for us.”

Langley roads on ‘worst roads’ list T O WN SHI P TA KES I S SUE WIT H R EPORT, C IT ES W O R K IN P R O GR E S S D AN F ERGUSO N Ti me s Re po r t e r

The Township of Langley is taking issue with a British Columbia Automobile Association (BCAA) survey that rated 13 roads in the community among the worst in B.C. The Langley routes were among 581 in the province identified as “unsafe, heavily congested or in desperate need of repair” by the association’s annual “worst roads” survey of drivers, cyclists and pedestrians conducted this summer. The survey used Google Maps to allow participants to pick stretches of road online. In Langley, the survey cited 0 Avenue, 200 Street, two sections of 208 Street, 267 Street, 48 Avenue, 80 Avenue, Crush Crescent, Glover Road, Langley Bypass, Old Yale Road, Production Way and Saddlehorn Crescent. Complaints included potholes, poor signs, lack of pedestrian safety, traffic congestion and badly-timed traffic lights. The list was sent to the Township on Oct. 29 by Mark Donnelly, the president and COO of the BCAA Road Safety Foundation. In a three-page letter of reply sent on Nov. 18, Township transportation engineering manager Paul Cordeiro offers a road-by-road response to the survey that begins by noting a number of the problems mentioned

are the responsibility of other agencies, such as the traffic signals at Crush Crescent and Glover Road, which are under provincial control, and Production Way, which is within the City of Langley. The Cordeiro letter goes on to say that 80 Avenue is “believed to be in good condition,” repairs to Old Yale Road have been delayed because it has a heritage designation as one of the first concrete roads constructed in the Lower Mainland, 200 Street is being widened and traffic signals on the busy roadway are being adjusted to deal with congestion and the traffic signals on 48 Avenue are timed to favour the higher volume of traffic on Fraser Highway. Zero Avenue pavement is in good shape, but it will require “significant upgrades” before it meets Township standards for a cycling route, Cordeiro says. He says 208 Street is being widening to accommodate increased traffic in the Willoughby area and work to fix potholes on 267 Street and Saddlehorn Crescent is subject to “available funding as part of the Township’s annual operating and capital budgets.” None of the Langley routes made the the 10 worst list for all of B.C. Top of the list was Westside Road in West Kelowna, cited for potholes and crumbling pavement.

Woman goes missing Police are hoping to find a 24-yearold Langley City woman who has been missing since Nov. 20. Iaeshya Mason was last seen at approximately 3:30 p.m. that day by her mother, who described her to be in ‘good spirits.’ Iaeshya has been living with her brother. She has been known to struggle with alcohol and non-prescription drugs. She is not currently employed and only had a small amount of cash.

Iaeshya has left home before but has always stayed in contact with her family. It is unusual for her not to have spoken to them for so long, said police. She is described as 5’2” tall, 137 pounds with curly brown hair and brown eyes.  She has a medium build. If you have information that would assist police in locating Iaeshya, please call Langley RCMP at 604532-3200.

Youth – the invisible homeless people SCHOOL AD MI N I ST RATO R S AWA R E O F THE D EP TH O F TH E P R O B L EM MON IQU E TA M M I NG A Ti m e s Re po r t er

Walk down a bustling hallway at any of Langley’s high schools and you will most likely walk past a homeless teenager. A homeless youth looks like any other student, said Loren Roberts, manager of youth homelessness for Aldergrove Neighbourhood Services. He or she can be a straight A student who lives in a vehicle, or buses in from a shelter outside of Langley each day to get to class. She can be a youth who is couch surfing or living with her friend’s family, he said. “A lot of the kids we work with aren’t homeless because of their own behaviour. Sometimes it is something as shocking as their family has up and left them. “Other times, it is family tragedy, the home is abusive and unsafe to go to, there has been a brain injury of one of the parents. It can be for so many reasons,” Roberts said. There are also young people whose own behaviour has led them to homelessness, from criminal actions and substance abuse to just not wanting to live with their parents’ rules or curfew, he said. Most of the schools in Langley offer a lunch program. Administrators try and take care of clothing needs when some youth come to school with no jackets, or shoes that are falling apart, as has been the case several times this year. “I think there is this misconception out there that a homeless teen is someone begging out on the streets,” said Langley Secondary principal Dawne Tomlinson. “They look like any other student in our school. “The difference that nobody sees is they aren’t living with any family members, they are couch surfing and the only safe place for them is school.” She has one student who takes a bus and Skytrain to get to LSS each day. He had addictions but now doesn’t miss a day of school and will graduate. Tomlinson said often kids will surf from couch to couch but too many times, a student will come to her on a Friday afternoon and

Out of school population of 850, that is way too high a number and speaks to the levels of poverty in Langley, she said. “We live in our middle class world and we don’t see the amount of poverty in Langley, in our own backyard.” This statement came on the same day a report found B.C. has the worst child poverty rate in Canada, again. The lunch program costs LSS around $13,000 to operate per year, which all comes from fundraising dollars, she said. After seeing too many teens in such crisis situations, she started a community round table and through that the Aldergrove

The right fit for you.

We don’t need anything as big as the Gateway of Hope. We need a two- or threebed program. LOREN ROBERTS

Neighbourhood Services has an office open on Mondays at the school, to help those most at risk. There is also a family support worker at the school and very determined counsellors. Through these services, teens aren’t reaching a crisis point as often, she said. The number of homeless youth in Langley fluctuates, but on some nights, up to six have nowhere to live or sleep.

But what makes Langley’s homeless youth unique is there is no emergency shelter for them here. There are no beds and no transitional housing. “There are youth shelters we can send them to in Abbotsford and in Surrey and those places are very accommodating, but we need something permanent in Langley. “Most of these kids attend school here and are ingrained here,” Roberts said. “Their friends are here.” Last year, Roberts was in front of both Langley councils pleading for funding to operate a Youth Extreme Weather Response shelter. He received the funding for last year. This year will be the first “full” year of the weather shelter response which will provide overnight shelter, in partnership with St. Dunstan’s Church in Aldergrove. ANS will also provide SafeRide,

which will provide youth with a ride, whether it be a taxi, bus ticket or some way to get them to overnight shelter just by calling the agency. Funding for this year’s initiative has come from in-kind support from the Langley RCMP, Ministry of Child and Family Development and the Child and Youth sub-committee and Healthier Communities Partnership. With the weather beginning to turn colder, Roberts has already put into action two extreme weather response nights, once when the rain came sideways and the other when temperatures dipped below zero. The response will piggyback on the Gateway of Hope’s Extreme Weather Response for adults. “We had a phone call from a friend wanting to find shelter for a teen but otherwise we didn’t have any youth use the shelter service that night,” Roberts said of the first call. “It’s going to be that way where we won’t always need a bed,” he said. But the point is there is a need for some help for at risk and homeless youth in the form of some kind of transitional housing. But like the Gateway of Hope, it will have to be a full community response. “Our local municipalities are open to learning more and the Ministry of Child Development has been supportive to our program so all of this makes us hopeful,” said Roberts. “Really we don’t need anything as big as the Gateway of Hope. We need a two- or three-bed program.” Housing Minister Rich Coleman was instrumental in getting provincial funding for Gateway of Hope, and a major community response, spearheaded by the four Langley Rotary Clubs, helped its all come together. Roberts would love to see the same efforts made for youth. If you are a youth or know of a youth who needs shelter during extreme weather, call 604-5306477 between 7 p.m. and midnight, and transportation to the shelter will be arranged.

Township urged to save the Salmon River DA N FERGU SO N Tim e s Re po r t e r

Calling the Salmon River “something extraordinary,” a fisheries expert has urged Langley Township council to take steps to preserve the waterway that runs through Fort Langley to connect with the Fraser River. Dr. Marvin Rosenau of BCIT’s Fish Wildlife and Recreation program told the Oct. 28 meeting that development decisions by the mayor and councillors directly affect the Salmon River and the fish that swim in it. “You guys are the deciders,” Rosenau said, “…the deciding factor as to whether the Salmon River will survive or not.” He warned against “hardening of the landscape” by allowing construction too close to the stream. Concrete and pavement will increase runoff into the river, eroding the fish habitat as the stream bed gets dirtier, Rosenau said. “You’ve got lots of decisions [about development near the waterway] to make,” Rosenau said. “The science is pretty straightforward.” During the question-and-answer that followed the presentation, Mayor Jack Froese said the challenge for council is balancing growth with preservation. “We have to put people someplace,” Froese said. Froese added right-to-farm laws limit the Township’s ability to restrict development such as green-

houses near waterways when they are built on ag r i c u l t u ra l land. Rosenau was critical of the provincial right-tofarm legislation, calling it “heavy-handed” and “environmentally DR . M A RV I N destructive.” W h e n ROSENAU Councillor Kim Richter asked Rosenau if the Township should simply stop developing near the river, he replied the municipality should get a groundwater specialist to review the situation. “You want to get your experts in here,” he said. Rosenau, who has more than 35 years experience and expertise in dealing with freshwater fisheries in the Fraser Valley, was invited to speak to council after he gave a public presentation on the health and viability of the Salmon River on May 23 at the Fort Langley Community Hall. The Salmon River Enhancement Society website describes the river as “the most productive stream for its size in the Lower  Fraser  Valley  for coho and cutthroat trout” with steelhead and at least 12 other fish species.

The Salmon River is at risk and Township council members are ‘the deciders’ of its fate, fisheries expert Dr. Marvin Rosenau told them. Rosenau appeared before council last month to draw attention to the risk of ‘hardening the landscape’ by building too close to the stream.

A weight is lifted

we

Published Tuesday and Thursday at 20258 Fraser Highway, Langley, B.C., V3A 4E6 by Black Press Ltd. Sales agreement No. 3298280. Contents copyright of Black Press.

A weight has been lifted off the shoulders of many Langley residents, and particularly residents of the Kwantlen First Nation on McMillan Island, with word that a 42-year-old woman has been arrested and is facing murder charges. Michelle Serdar is facing a second-degree murder charge in the death of 71-year-old Kwantlen elder George Antone. His body was found in his home on March 7, 2011. While police have done an intensive investigation, there has been little word on what they were working on, as is standard procedure. Thus rumours have spread and people who live in the small tight-knit Kwantlen community have had legitimate fears. George Antone was a much-beloved member of the Kwantlen community and his death struck a grievous blow. His wisdom and experience are impossible to replicate, and that too hit the community members very hard. A statement read by Tumia Knott at a police press conference on Tuesday summed up many of the feelings of Kwantlen residents. “The family and community of Kwantlen continue to mourn the loss of our beloved elder George Antone. “We wish for closure for the family; we pray that the truth will be revealed and for justice to prevail. “Our Kwantlen family and George’s family are strong and we are determined to stay strong and walk together through this. We pray for justice and resolution. “We await the judicial process to begin, as we continue to remember and mourn the loss of our dear elder.” Her statement says what many people feel — they are glad the wait is over, and await the next step.

Question langeytimes.com

of the week

Will you be donating to a charity as part of your Christmas season activities?

Answer online at www.langleytimes.com

Many Canadians — including Tri-City residents — will vote with their feet this week and head south on Black Friday in hopes of finding bargains on electronics, appliances, apparel and food. This trek is part of a general trend of Canadians to cross-border shop while our dollar’s value stays relatively high, and although the price spread is just 10 per cent — not a huge difference given the time spent in border lineups and the cost of gas — the general impression is that U.S. retailers do a better job in keeping prices low. The truth is more complicated as retailers, such as London Drugs, have been adapting to consumer demand, offering competitive deals and early shopping hours for Black Friday to keep shoppers at home. As well, the entry of U.S.-based Walmart and Target stores has forced Canadian retailers to sharpen their pencils. But Canadian retailers can’t take all the blame for the price differences. In fact, Canada’s relative small consumer market compared to the U.S. contributes to higher pricing overall. For one thing, foreign suppliers have historically charged more for their product, knowing that Canadian consumers will still pay the higher price, and because Canada is a more costly market to service. Transportation costs, distribution costs, (somewhat) higher labour costs, tariffs and fees as well as higher rent and real estate costs all add to the mark-up Canadians pay on goods. It’s a fact of life in a country with a smaller population that consumer goods will be more expensive. But should retailers ignore the desire of Canadians to get more for their money? Absolutely not, they need to take some responsibility for the problem of cross-border shopping and do what they can to keep customers at home — whether it be through enhanced customer service, warranty servicing or more competitive pricing. At the same time, Canadian consumers shouldn’t be let off the hook. They need to know that circulating their dollar in their home community keeps themselves and their neighbours employed, and thus benefits local economies. Dollars spent in Canada will also ensure that we continue to enjoy health care, a strong social safety net and many other benefits. When it comes to quality of life, you get what you pay for. — Tri-City News

Photos questioned Editor: Any pictures of the proposed Coulter Berry building in your paper do not show what I see any day I drive in Fort Langley. Drawings show the street profile, which is completely different than what seems possible — unless the building is being built to include the sidewalk, and then a new sidewalk will go on the road, with street parking in the traffic lane. What I see is a cement wall right up to the curb on the north and west sides. Is this allowed on our municipal property? I thought we had property lines to live by. Does this allow me to put my fence right out to the road edge? The Township should let us know, as some of my neighbours could increase their property size by almost 50 per cent. Mind you, the way things are in Fort Langley, we don’t have sidewalks. We have to walk on the road with cars. That’s for the people who live here. It’s just the downtown group who get special treatment. BRUCE JOHNSON, LANGLEY

Let’s solve problem Editor: I am writing to congratulate Jesse Brown on a well-balanced and a perfectly articulated letter regarding Coulter Berry (The Times, Nov. 21). I live in Fort Langley and do not know Jesse Brown. But the letter shows a clear understanding and interpretation of the issues in layman’s terms. Neither side is a winner. So let’s stop pointing fingers at each other, get ourselves back together as a community and look to the municipality — and council — to resolve the problem they have created. JONATHAN MEADS, LANGLEY

Some allowed to be distracted

Anti-GMO tour doesn’t follow much of what science is saying Editor: This is a rebuttal to the Genetic Engineering Free B.C. speaking tour, which touched down in Langley on Friday. The anti-GMO industry has ramped up their attacks on genetically engineered (GE) crops and food made from them. From GE test plot destruction to demand for GE specific labelling to calling for the banning of agriculture using GE crops, this global industry uses fear and public ignorance of the real science to advance their agenda. The main speaker in the tour, Dr. Thierry Vrain, speaks about how “science” proved GE crops and food were causing all manners of ills. Each of the publications he cites has been examined by experts in toxicology, food safety and health as well as national and international scientific bodies. All the publications he uses in his presentation have been rejected for a variety of reasons related to multiple breaches of the scientific method. One such example that Vrain claims to be evidence is the Rowett paper in The Lancet. However, after reviewing the paper, the UK Royal Society said: “the reported work from the Rowett is flawed in many aspects of design, execution and analysis and that no conclusions should be drawn from it. We found no convincing evidence of adverse effects from GM potatoes.” Another amusing bit of pseudo-science that Vrain presents as evidence is actually the most discredited paper in the history of GE research, Seralini 2012. Every food safety authority in the world has unanimously rejected this preposterous publication. The 2012 paper cited by Vrain is the third publication from this author that has been severely rebuked by world authorities. Health Canada examined and rejected the conclusions of the Seralini paper. It said: “The overwhelming body

of scientific evidence continues to support the safety of NK603, genetically modified food and feed products in general, and glyphosate containing herbicides. However, whenever new information concerning the safety of an authorized product arises, this new data is carefully reviewed.” Vrain rejects virtually all North American research, claiming it is inaccurate and biased. The European Academies Science Advisory Council wrote “There is no validated evidence that GM crops have greater adverse impact on health and the environment than any other technology used in plant breeding. There is compelling evidence that GM crops can contribute to sustainable development goals with benefits to farmers, consumers, the environment and the economy.” The American Association for the Advancement of Science said it best: “The World Health Organization, the American Medical Association, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, the British Royal Society, and every other respected organization that has examined the evidence has come to the same conclusion: consuming foods containing ingredients derived from GM crops is no riskier than consuming the same foods containing ingredients from crop plants, modified by conventional plant improvement techniques.” Every example Vrain puts forward has been examined and dismissed by world food, health and science experts. This fact seems to be irrelevant to him. Simply put, he is promoting fear not facts. ROBERT WAGER, VANCOUVER ISLAND UNIVERSITY, NANAIMO

Shame on all those who drove by

Editor: Re: the distracted driving story (The Times, Nov. 26). The police hand out 158 tickets in two hours, with most for distracted driving. Leanne Cassap from ICBC advises us that “driving is such a complex task that requires your full attention” and there is a reminder that “You are driving a 4,000-pound bomb.” If that is correct, then why are emergency personnel exempt from the Motor Vehicle Act, Part 3.1 — Use of Electronic Devices while Driving. This applies even in non-emergency situations. J. ANDERSON, LANGLEY

Editor: Shame on you Langley. I say shame to those who refused to stop and help an elderly couple who sat helpless in a stalled car at the traffic light at 216 Street and Fraser Highway on Monday, Nov. 20 at 1:30 p.m. I was late for a doctor’s appointment and in pain (I have not been able to walk on my foot for several weeks), but I stopped, because help was needed. Shame on all of you who pretended you did not see me waving my hands and calling out for help. Shame on all of you who looked at me in the eyes and said “no.” Shame on you young, strong and healthy pedestrians who also refused to come to our aid. Shame on you, middle-aged lady, who when I asked if she could please let the elderly couple use her phone to call BCAA, replied, “No, I am using my phone right now,” and then proceeded to drive off.

It was quite the sight. A 51-year-old limping lady and an elderly lady heaving and pushing an SUV through the intersection, while a disabled elderly man sat shocked and embarrassed in the passenger seat, with cars and pedestrians ignoring us. The icing on the cake was the policeman who just shrugged his shoulders at us (waving our arms and calling for help) and continued driving past. Thank you to the two men, who did stop and helped us push the vehicle through the intersection and into the gas station. Come on Langley. I have lived here almost all my life. This community can do way better than that. L. BUSSANI, LANGLEY

“carbon neutral” braintrust that those new boilers are still burning natural gas? This program is about to be foisted onto universities and hospitals. Does anyone actually believe that heating hospitals and college classrooms is a key driver of global warming? Presumably our carbon czars know that 40 per cent of B.C.’s human-generated greenhouse gas emissions are from transportation, and a few electric cars for school district staff aren’t going to change that. And what happens when colleges and hospitals run out of boilers to modernize and insulation to upgrade? It won’t be long at this rate. In hindsight, this “carbon neutral government” scheme is perhaps the worst single idea implemented in 12 years of BC Liberal government. Gordon Campbell’s grand vision of a province where government sets the green standard and the private sector economy follows has simply not worked. The NDP presented a motion in April 2012 to relieve hospitals, colleges and universities of their carbon offset obligation. The idea was supported by a BC Liberal backbencher, who argued that B.C. should also scrap the carbon tax and quit pretending it can change the climate. His name? Bill Bennett. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalNews. com

It seems Bill 22 legislation to keep class sizes under 30 students is working in Langley. Assistant superintendent Claire Guy provided a “good news report” to the board of education on class sizes this year at the Tuesday night meeting. “In all of Langley, we only had five classes over 30 students this year,” said Guy. “We had 13 last year, so thank you to the principals for their

hard work to organize classrooms.” As part of the province’s Bill 22 legislation, teachers are compensated financially for classes that have more than 30 students. Last year, the district paid out $6,700 to teachers. This year, it will only be $3,000, said Guy. “Numbers in classrooms matter, so my thanks to all who worked hard on this,” said school board chair Wendy Johnson. Johnson is a former Langley principal.

New Canadians welcomed home

Langley MP Mark Warawa welcomed 50 new Langley Canadians citizens during a ceremony at Brookswood Secondary School earlier this month. “We are grateful that you chose Canada and we are proud to welcome you as new Canadians,” said Warawa as he addressed the new citizens. “On behalf of Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the government of Canada, congratulations and welcome home.” A citizenship ceremony is an opportunity to witness the final step for many who want to become a Canadian citizen. “I am thrilled to take part in this government of Canada initiative which encourages civic awareness among students – this is a firsthand opportunity to witness the induction of 50 new Canadians and to reflect on the many freedoms, rights and responsibilities that we share as Canadians,” said Warawa. During the citizenship ceremony, 50 permanent residents took the oath of citizenship, received their citizenship certificates and were welcomed into the Canadian family. While delivering remarks at the ceremony, Warawa also highlighted the importance of being a Canadian. “As Canadians, we understand that citizenship should not be simply a passport of convenience,” said Warawa. “Citizenship is a pledge of mutual responsibility and a shared commitment to values rooted in our history. Canadian citizenship is coveted around the world. . . . May we never take for granted the wonderful freedoms that we all enjoy, freedom won through the sacrifices of many.”

Christmas trees with a cause

While creating memories  as you decorate your tree with family this Christmas, you can  get that “warm and fuzzy” feeling knowing that your tree is helping people in need, both locally and around the world. The Rotary Club of Langley Sunrise is holding their inaugural Christmas tree sale from Dec. 4 to Dec. 22 at the corner of 202 Street and 89 Avenue in Walnut Grove.  “We found the market for traditional fundraisers such as gala dinners and other ticket selling events was getting saturated in Langley so we wanted to create a social enterprise where we could raise funds for the community by selling a product that people would be buying anyway, ” said Rotarian

Jeff Morfitt. “All net proceeds will go directly to local and international causes.” With the exception of a few grocery stores selling discount price trees in Walnut Grove the Rotary Club noticed there was no one selling premium quality trees in an old-fashioned tree lot atmosphere in the area.  Deanna Whissell, a Rotarian and owner of Vanilla Clothing in Walnut Grove approached her landlord about using empty parking lot space.   “There was no hesitation,” said Whissel. “I have a great landlord and he approved the use of the space immediately”.    “These are not discount priced trees,” said Morfitt. “They are premium, local fresh cut Fraser,

noble and grand trees. “All trees will be unwrapped so our customers can inspect them to be sure it’s the perfect tree for their home,” Morfitt said. “We will also be selling accessories such as tree stands to be sure you have everything you need to proudly display your tree.”   All net proceeds will go to local causes such as fighting illiteracy, by providing every Grade 4 student in Langley with a dictionary and helping to help build a library in Rwanda.    The Christmas tree lot will be open from noon to 7 p.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.  Go to www.rotarylangley.com.

As many as 60 people attended a candlelight vigil to mark the ninth annual International Day of Elimination of Violence Against Women on Nov. 25. The event, organized by Ishtar Transition Housing Society was held at the refurbished plaza in McBurney Lane. The society offers numerous programs including “Children who Witness Abuse” and “Stop the Violence” counseling programs. In addition, it operates two domestic violence shelters. The society also provides outreach and community based victim services. The short ceremony lasted approximately 30 minutes, with remarks from representatives of Langley’s three levels of government, the RCMP, Ishtar’s executive director, Arbe McKenzie, and Ishtar’s president Janette Kovacs. In attendance were Diane Warawa representing MP Mark Warawa; MLA Peter Fassbender, minister of education; MLA Mary Polak, minister of environment; Mayor Jack Froese, Township of Langley, Councillor Rosemary Wallace representing the City of Langley and School Board Chair Wendy Johnson. Township Councillor Grant Ward; Langley City Councillor Dave Hall, and School Board Trustee Cecelia Reekie were also in attendance. The speakers talked about the effects that domestic violence has on society. Froese described his first experience with domestic violence as a rookie police officer and the profound effect it had on his career. Ishtar’s new executive director Arbe McKenzie noted the importance of keeping the issue of domestic violence front and centre.

As many as 60 people turned out on Nov. 25 for a candlelight vigil at McBurney Lane to mark the ninth annual International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. “The candlelight vigil is an opportunity to discuss the devastating effects that violence has on both women and children. “Raising awareness supports areas such as prevention, which is essential to address root and structural causes with intentions of promoting healthy relationships and gender equality,” she said. Soroptimist president-elect Sharon Fisher said that “someone has to do something, and we are all someone.” She announced that the event kicked off the first annual 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence — an international campaign originating from the first Women’s Global Leadership Institute, sponsored by the Center for Women’s Global Leadership in 1991. All of the evening’s speakers noted that society has come far

with respect to the issue, but also stressed the need for continuing education. They commended the members of the public who, by their attendance, demonstrated that gender violence in any form is unacceptable. The ceremony concluded with a few minutes of silence in honour of women who have been victims of violence. Nov. 25 marked the 48th anniversary of the assassination of the Mirabal sisters by dictator Rafael Trujillo in the Dominican Republic. The resulting outcry caused the overthrow of the Trujillo regime. The day was observed throughout Latin America and in 1999 the United Nations proclaimed Nov. 25 as the International Day for Elimination of Violence against Women.

Wild ideas for Christmas CRITTER CARE HOSTING ANNUAL SALE DEC. 2-15 For the person who has everything or for those on your list who want to support a worthy cause, Critter Care Wildlife Society has the perfect presents. Go wild this holiday and go shopping at the Critter Care Christmas sale, on from Dec. 2 to Dec. 15 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day at the rehabilitation centre. Volunteer elves have been busy making gifts specialized to represent the more than 1,500 injured and orphaned animals staying at Critter Care. That means there are bear cub mouse pads, Critter Care calendars, ornaments, critter Christ-

mas cards, animal pjs, hoodies, raccoon socks and more. It has been a busy year for Critter Care, said Gail Martin, founder and operator. With 1,500 mammals, that is an increase of 600 injured or orphaned animals over last year. They have taken in four bear cubs so far this fall. “They have slowed down so they should be into hibernation by the end of December,� said Martin. “With the loss of habitat, the numbers of admissions continue to grow,� said Martin. “It is never a slow time for Critter Care as our fall and winter

is filled with injured animals. Our year is busy — filled with building and repairs. A nice new fence adorns the front of the property.� Critter Care is a non-profit society that relies on donations and some small government grants to purchase food and special formula for each of the animals, whether it be raccoons, fawns, otters or coyotes. The public is invited to come out and support the local wildlife centre, located at 481 216 Street. Call 604-530-2054 or visit crittercarewildlife.org to learn more.

Langley Holiday Market opening its doors HOLIDAY MARKET OPEN FOR NEXT THREE SATURDAYS GARY AHUJA Tim es Reporter

DAN FER GUSON L an gley Tim es

The Eureka Masonic Hall on Fraser Highway will be transformed into a Holiday Market for the next three Saturdays, beginning this week. The market will be open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Nov. 30, Dec. 7 and Dec. 14.

Tis the season to go holiday shopping, and with that in mind, a Holiday Market is opening this Saturday. “We have had winter markets over the years, but this is our first holiday market,” said Benedict Canale, the market manager. “It is a brand new venue and a brand new event for us.” The market will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Nov. 30, Dec. 7 and Dec. 14 at the Eureka Masonic Hall on Fraser Highway. The decision to open a holiday market resulted largely from the success of the Farmers Market. “This past summer has been our most successful Farmers Market yet,” Canale said. “We had the highest attendance we ever had, the most number of vendors that we have ever had, (and) overall, the gross revenue brought in by the vendors has been the highest ever as well,” he said. “In that light, we really wanted to continue the spirit into the holiday season, first for our community members because we know being

able to buy local is important to them. “We wanted to give them that option in the winter season.” “We also wanted to keep that spirit and that life of our organization in the forefront of peoples’ minds, even when it is not necessarily a growing season.” This particular location was chosen because of its proximity to the Farmers’ Market (which was located in the parking lot of Kwantlen Polytechnic University) as well as the fact it is on a high-traffic road. The market will offer a variety of goods, all produced locally. There will be things such as jams, honeys, chocolates, cheeses, baked goods, perogies, handcrafted items, soaps and lotions, to name a few. There will also be food carts on site as well as live music. “It is a diverse, well-rounded group that is not too heavy on any one part,” Canale said. The market is located at 20701 Fraser Hwy. and admission is free. For more information, visit www. langleycommunityfarmersmarket. com.

For the second time, we’re proud to be recognized as one of the 50 best employers in Canada

Green Can campaign tackles food waste disposal

Subm itted Ph oto

Melissa Brown and her children Haidyn, 6, Jude, 4, and Mikayla, 8, are keeping food scraps out of the landfill by taking part in the Township of Langley’s Green Can program.

Separating food scraps from household garbage helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and saves money, says Debbie Fleming of Langley Township’s Engineering Division. Fleming says food scraps account for 40 per cent of our garbage and if taken to the landfill and left to decompose, they create harmful greenhouse gasses and cost the municipality in disposal fees. “By taking just a few minutes to separate our food scraps, we can help our environment and save money,” Fleming says. That’s the goal of Green Can, a Township of Langley initiative that encourages residents to keep food scraps and other compostable items out of the landfill by separating them from their garbage. By collecting unwanted food scraps - including meat, bones, dairy products, fish, bread, and soiled paper – in a small kitchen container then placing them in a curbside collection bin, residents can keep thousands of tonnes of material out of the garbage each year. Walnut Grove resident Melissa Brown, a nurse and mother of three, says the Green Can program allows her family to dispose of other food scraps

that she could not put in her backyard composter, such as cooked food, dairy solids, meat and bones. “It’s been great,” Brown says. “There is so much less waste going into garbage. The garbage doesn’t smell at all and we have to clean it out less.” The key, Brown says, is to keep the small food waste containers handy by the kitchen sink. She and her husband have one designated for the backyard compost, the other for Green Can. Lining the containers with newspaper or using a paper food waste bag prevents mess and odour, makes it easier to transfer waste to the outdoor Green Can, and is easier to clean out, she says. For Langley’s Leona Dyck, whose husband is over 70 years old, using the Green Can took a little more getting used to. “He is old school,” she laughs. “Our neighbours were doing it but they are of a younger generation and quicker to change. For us it took a while, but since I’ve convinced my husband, he has been gung ho for it.” Now the family keeps a bowl on the counter that they fill with food waste and empty it into the Green Can once a day.

Lawn clippings and yard waste go in as well, along with shredded documents, which the Dycks place at the bottom of the can to absorb any moisture. “It’s nice and clean and you don’t have to spend any money,” said Leona. “We’re totally on board. It’s our tax dollars doing some good.” The Green Can program is available to single-family households that receive municipal garbage pick-up from the Township of Langley. Residents can purchase a 77 or 80 litre can, or use their old Yard Trimmings can. Collected food scraps, along with yard waste, are then placed in the can, which should be no heavier than 44 pounds. The cans must be marked with a Green Can sticker, which can be picked up at any Township recreation centre, the Civic Facility, or Operations Centre, and placed on the curb with the decal facing the street. The cans are picked up on regular garbage and recycling collection days, and there is no limit to the number of Green Cans that can be set out. Visit tol.ca/greencan for more information about what can go in your Green Can.

and for our suppliers and sub-contract partners.” Approximately 500 of Britco’s employees work in B.C. and the development of LNG in this province will mean more jobs in B.C. The province has committed to having three LNG facilities in operation by 2020, creating an estimated 9,000 new construction jobs. Britco is looking to provide state-of-the-art workforce accommodations required to house the thousands of skilled workers required for these projects. “Britco’s modular approach to building construction is a greener, smarter, faster way to build,” Gardner said. “Because we are working off-site and on-site at the same time, we are able to drive costs down and accelerate the construction schedule.” The jobs and trades mission wraps up on Dec. 3.

Bison earns top 10 award A Langley company has netted a national award. Bison Transport First Trucking Company was named one of Canada’s 10 most admired corporate culture. They received the honour from Waterstone Human Capital, one of Canada’s leading retained executive search firms specializing in recruiting for fit. Bison won in the

mid-market category and they are the first trucking company to earn the honour. “Being selected as having one of the most admired corporate cultures in Canada is a true honour for our organization,” said Rob Penner, Bison’s executive vice-president. “As a company, it is important that our beliefs and behaviours are instilled in the work

force and that the environment we create allows our people to grow, prosper and excel. “It is gratifying to know that the collective efforts of the people of Bison Transport are being recognized in this great manner. “It also serves as an important reminder that is it not just about what you do, it’s how you treat and interact with others.”

Born Beatrice Mary Halstead Key in Carlysle England on October 24, 1913. Betty graduated from teacher’s college. She married a Canadian Naval officer during World War II and came to Canada as one of more than 43,000 war brides. Settling in Vancouver, Betty and her husband raised two sons.

Betty received birthday wishes from Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Governor General David Johnston, and Her Majesty the Queen.

The mission is off to China, Korea and Japan and its purpose is so strengthen B.C.’s relationship with those key Asian markets and advance liquefied natural gas (LNG) development opportunities. Britco sees the export of LNG to Asia as a sustainable way to provide longterm jobs and opportunities for communities across the province. “The development and export of LNG is going to redefine B.C.’s and Canada’s energy future,” Gardner said. “It’s an enormous opportunity for our province. “Not only is the investment in LNG a great opportunity for Britco, but also it means local jobs and local benefits for the communities where we work

GVHBA Coats for Kids campaign will keep spirits bright By Kerry Vital

The temperatures are steadily falling, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to break out the cozy winter coats, gloves, hats and scarves. However, for those who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford all of that warm gear, this season might be less than cheerful. To combat this, the Greater Vancouver Home Buildersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

Association has kicked off its annual Coats for Kids campaign, hoping to beat last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collection number. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year the response to Coats for Kids was heart-warming as Lower Mainland residents donated more than 3,000 coats, scarves, gloves, blankets and new unwrapped toys and gifts for distribution to children, teenagers and adults,â&#x20AC;? says GVHBA Board of Directors Chair Lynn Harrison. The donation drive supports the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau, which helps provide a brighter Christmas for families in need. This year marks the 18th year of the campaign, which

brings together members all over the Lower Mainland. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am delighted so many prominent members of our association are participating,â&#x20AC;? says Harrison. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is so important to help families in our communities who are in need, especially during this time of the year.â&#x20AC;? New or gently used winter coats, scarves, gloves, toques, warm blankets and sweaters and other warm items of clothing are all welcomed, as well as unwrapped gifts and toys or monetary donations. Among the locations you can drop off items are many Black Press community newspaper offices, developers and other housing industry professionals in Abbotsford, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Delta, Langley, Maple Ridge, North Vancouver, Port Moody, Port Coquitlam, Richmond, Surrey, Vancouver and West Vancouver. For a full list of participating locations and times when you can drop off donations, visit www.gvhba.org/coatsforkids.

Life doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end at your front door at LedMacâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Charland By Kerry Vital

Life is full of surprises, activities and excitement, and Ledingham McAllister is keeping that in mind with Charland, its condominium development in Coquitlam. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We took your whole lifestyle into account,â&#x20AC;? says Manuela Mirecki, senior vice-president of marketing and design for Ledingham McAllister. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Life doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end at your front door.â&#x20AC;? In order to cater to that, Charland includes

  $10,000

     

thoughtful touches such as a bicycle repair station, bike-sized storage lockers and storage for kayaks and paddles, making the development perfect for outdoor enthusiasts. It also has the perfect location, just blocks from the Vancouver Golf Club and Blue Mountain Park, as well as shopping, dining and schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about location, location, location,â&#x20AC;? says Mirecki. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are mountain bike trails galore around here, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incredibly green.â&#x20AC;? Charland is joining the well-established Austin Heights neighbourhood, and will take advantage of some of the amazing views in the area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The views of Mount Baker and the golf course are absolutely beautiful,â&#x20AC;? Mirecki says. Charland is equally beautiful, with its Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired exterior architecture, bamboo garden with its own seating area, infinity-pool water feature and

rooftop terrace. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real sense of pride in the outside,â&#x20AC;? says Mirecki. Inside, the 88 spacious one-, two- and three-bedroom floorplans range from approximately 604 to 1,003 square feet, with a large balcony or patio in every home. Among the features youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find in your new space are nine-foot ceilings and contemporary laminate flooring throughout the main living areas. The kitchen in particular demonstrates the luxury of the home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kitchens are spectacular,â&#x20AC;? Mirecki says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have all those things you would expect in a West Vancouver home. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really the showpiece.â&#x20AC;? Stainless-steel appliances, halogen pot lights and under-cabinet lighting are just three of those features. The cabinetry and countertops differ depending on your colour scheme. The Dogwood scheme showcases

white Shaker-style cabinets complemented by quartz composite countertops with linearstyle ceramic tile, while the Evergreen scheme includes flat-panel cabinets in a warm-grey wood-grain finish and quartz composite countertops paired with a modern porcelain mini-mosaic tile backsplash. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also find a breakfast bar or large kitchen island in most homes. Luxurious bathrooms feature square-edge quartz countertops and porcelain tile floors. The master ensuite includes a deep soaker tub with full-height ceramic tile surround and recessed pot lighting, which continues in the main bathroom as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are beautiful homes and floorplans,â&#x20AC;? Mirecki says. Homes at Charland start at $219,900. For more information, check out www.ledmac. com/charland, call 604-492-3388 or visit the presentation centre at 102-1020 Austin Avenue, Coquitlam, open daily (except Friday) between noon and 5 p.m.

Sihota still feeling the ‘rush’

Prep school power house back at LEC

GARY AH U J A Ti me s Spo r t s

From an early age, Ken Sihota has had a fascination with cars. At age 13, he rebuilt his first engine and even before he had a driver’s licence, Sihota already owned a car, a ’68 Dodge Charger muscle car which he bought when he was 15. Thirty years later, he is still going strong. Earlier this month (Nov. 17), the 45-year-old Sihota was competing at the Street Car Super Nationals in Las Vegas, a yearly drag racing event that draws upwards of 300 cars competing in various classes. Sihota’s class — the Outlaw 10.5 class (the 10.5 represents the width in inches of the rear wheels) — had 39 competitors. And the final two both hailed from the Fraser Valley: Langley’s Sihota and Abbotsford’s Steve Steve Nicholson.

Some of the top boys and girls high school basketball players will be on the court for the second annual Tsumura Basketball Invitational this weekend at the Langley Events Centre. On the girls side, the six top AAA teams and eight of the top 10 will hit the court, including the Brookswood Bobcats. The Bobcats open the season ranked number one and will battle the second-ranked Oak Bay Bays on Sunday at 3:30 p.m. On the boys side of the event, U.S. prep school powerhouse Findlay Prep — which is from Henderson, Nev. — will be headliners for the second straight year. “Having the top high school girls teams competing against each other will be a great way to start the basketball season and that will be capped off by seeing the best boys players in the province take on one of the best prep programs in the U.S,” said Jared Harman, the director of business development for the Langley Events Centre. The team, which is coached by former NBA player Jerome Williams, has several players who have already committed to NCAA Division 1 programs, as well as other highly-touted players who have yet to accept scholarship offers. Findlay Prep will play a pair of games against all-stars made up of top senior boys players from around the Lower Mainland. They will play one of the allstar teams on Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. and the second all-star team on Sunday at 5 p.m. The latter team will feature two members of the Walnut Grove Gators, the defending B.C. AAA senior boys provincial champions. Point guard Jadon Cohee — who has signed his national letter of intent to attend Seattle University next year —  and Tyler Anderson are the two Gators on the roster. The team will also be coached by Walnut Grove’s George Bergen.

TWU splits with visiting Cougars The Trinity Western Spartans bounced back from a 3-0 loss the night before to salvage a split against the Regina Cougars. The two Canada West womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volleyball rivals squared off at the Langley Events Centre. Trinity Western, which fell from second to fifth in the national rankings with the loss, is 6-4 while Regina is 3-7. The Spartans dropped the first set on Saturday, 25-20 but rebounded to win three straight, 26-24, 25-19 and 25-23. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the strengths of our team is blocking and we knew the specific things that we needed to do and we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it in the first set or in yesterdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s match,â&#x20AC;? said Trinity Western coach Ryan Hofer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It took us a little while to find the right rhythm and the right match-ups.â&#x20AC;? Outside hitter Sophie Carpentier led the team with 22 kills and a .279 hitting percentage. Chelsea Tancon added 10 kills and five digs while Royal Richardson had nine kills and a dozen digs. Casie Gano and Lindsay Dyckman combined for 20 blocks. It was a good bounce back game for the Spartans as they fell in straight sets on the first night. Regina won by scores of 25-16, 25-20 and 25-22. The Spartans were missing four starters but Hofer was still disappointed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even though we were missing some players, I thought those who were out there could have raised their level of play and put a lot more pressure on Regina,â&#x20AC;? he said. Richardson and Tancon each had 10 kills to lead the team. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ The Spartans close the first half of the season with a pair of matches on the road against the Manitoba Bisons (6-4).

Trinity Western Spartansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Branden Schmidt goes up for the kill against the Regina Cougars. The Spartans beat the Cougars twice over the weekend at the Langley Events Centre.

Back-to-back sweeps for Spartans Back-to-back three-set victories improved the second-ranked Trinity Western Spartans menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volleyball team to 9-1 in Canada West conference play. The Spartans were hosting the Regina Cougars on Nov. 22 and Nov. 23 at the Langley Events Centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a smooth night for us,â&#x20AC;? said Spartans coach Ben Josephson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any time you win 3-0 you have to be happy. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to beat teams 3-0, so to get two of those to finish our home schedule this weekend is good.â&#x20AC;? Outside hitters Nick Del Bianco led the team on Saturday with 16 kills while Ryan Sclater added seven kills, seven digs and four blocks. They won by scores of 25-21, 25-9 and 25-20 and dominated in every category against the 0-10 Cougars. Trinity Western had a .333 attacking percentage (37 kills and 11 errors on 78 attempts) compared to -.014 for the Cougars (19 kills and 20 errors on 74 attempts). In Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s match, the Spartans

online langleytimes.com

won 25-12, 25-15 and 25-20 with a .421 hitting percentage and 13.5 blocks. They also had a 7-1 advantage in service aces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a good start but a poor finish,â&#x20AC;? Josephson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our opponents kept figuring out the things we were doing well and I thought we lost some focus in the third set. Our set quality, reception quality and dig quality all faded in that third set and I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why that game was closer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Part of it was that (Regina) got better, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a combo of them putting up more pressure and us not getting better.â&#x20AC;? Del Bianco (11 kills, five blocks) and Lucas Van Berkel (eight kills, six blocks) and Branden Schmidt had a match-high eight blocks to go with three aces and three kills. Setter Adam Schriemer had 22 assists to go along with seven digs. The Spartans close out the first half of the regular season with a pair of road games in Winnipeg against the Manitoba Bisons (5-5).

Back-to-back wins stop losing skid G ARY AH U JA Tim e s Spo r t s

Better but not yet where he wants them to be. That was the assessment of coach Bobby Henderson following a pair of weekend victories, which halted a threegame losing streak for the Langley Rivermen junior A hockey club. “We got better as the weekend went on,” Henderson said. “But we are not quite where we want to be yet.” “We are getting closer and taking steps in the right direction,” he added. The team had lost a 4-3 decision to the visiting Prince George Spruce Kings last Thursday (Nov. 21) in a battle between the top two teams in the BCHL’s Mainland Division. The Spruce Kings (16-8-2-2, 36 points) hold a one-point advantage over Langley (16-9-1-2, 35 points) heading into last night’s (Wednesday) rematch in Prince George.

The game concluded after The Times’ press deadline. Langley did bounce back from that Prince George defeat, knocking off the Salmon Arm SilverBacks 3-2 in overtime on Nov. 22 at the LEC and then travelling to Chilliwack where they shut-out the Chiefs 4-0 on Nov. 23. Brock Crossthwaite was in goal for both games, stopping 35 saves in the first win and then making another 27 to pick up his second shutout of the season. Gage Torrel’s powerplay goal in overtime sent the Rivermen to the first victory while James Robinson and Mitch McLain scored the other goals. Nathan Craft, Matt Ustaski, Will Cook and McLain had the goals, with the first and the last coming while the Rivermen were down a man. Cook’s goal was on the power-play, the third man-advantage goal over the two games.

Langley Rivermen defenceman Austen Bietenbeck (#17) attempts to cut off Chilliwack Chiefs’ Kurt Black on a drive to the net during BCHL action at Chilliwack’s Prospera Centre on Saturday. Rivermen goalie Brock Crossthwaite made 27 saves in a 4-0 Langley victory. In addition to last night’s game in Prince George, the Rivermen have a busy week with four games in five days.

They are in Penticton on Friday and Kelowna on Saturday. They wrap the weekend up with a home matinee on

Sunday at the LEC versus the Chiefs. Game time is 2 p.m. And while the team is getting healthier, they are still not 100

per cent. “We have plenty of depth and it gives other guys a chance to step up,” Henderson said.

The Aldergrove Kodiaks grounded the Abbotsford Pilots in a first-place showdown. The junior B hockey club went into Abbotsford’s MSA Arena and skated away with a 4-1 victory last week (Nov. 22). The victory gives the Kodiaks a one-point lead — with a game in hand — over the Pilots for top spot in the PJHL’s Harold Brittain Conference. Roshen Jaswal and Jeremy Lagler scored first period goals for Aldergrove for the 2-0 lead. The Kodiaks’ Quinncy Leroux and Abbotsford’s Jarett Martin then traded second period goals. Stephen Ryan scored into the empty net to round out the scoring. Jordan Liem made 29 saves. The win improves Aldergrove to 15-4-0-2 and 32 points through 21 games. The team has won five in a row and is unbeaten in their past 11, going 9-0-0-2 in that span.

Spartans upset No. 5 Huskies Denny McDonald’s three-point play — a basket and the foul —— helped the Trinity Western men’s basketball team upset the fifthranked Saskatchewan Huskies on Friday (Nov. 23) in Saskatoon. The Spartans, who dropped a 8775 decision to the fourth-ranked Alberta Golden Bears the night before in Edmonton, erased a 16-point halftime deficit to hand the Huskies (7-1) their first loss of the season, 75-73. Trinity Western improved to 4-4. With his team down by a point, McDonald drove to the basket and finished off the glass, drawing a foul in the process with five seconds to play. He sank the free throw and the Huskies long-range attempt at the buzzer bounced harmlessly off the rim. “Finding a way to win was pretty impressive after being down by so much,” said Spartans coach Scott Allen. “We had a great team effort from Justin (Bakuteka). He was a stable part of our offence and defence. “(And) Robert (Rodriguez) was a force and he willed the team to win. “I’m really proud of the guys tonight.” Both players had 15 points. The Huskies were up 21-16 after one quarter and 44-28 at the half. The Spartans cut the lead to 11 after three quarters and then outscored Saskatchewan 28-15 in the fourth. McDonald led a balanced scoring

attack with 16 points while Jesse Jeffers and Anthony Ottley had 10 apiece. ••••• The Trinity Western Spartans could not overcome a poor first quarter, dropping their seventh straight Canada West conference game. The women’s basketball team wrapped up a two-game Prairie road trip — they lost the opener 79-52 in Edmonton to the Alberta Pandas —  on the wrong end of an 81-57 score to the fifth-ranked Saskatchewan Huskies in Saskatoon on Nov. 22. The Huskies improved to 6-1 while the Spartans fell to 1-7. Making matters harder for the team was the fact the bus they rode on overnight from Saskatoon to Edmonton had its heat fail. “We played as though we were the tired and unprepared team early in the game,” said Trinity Western coach Cheryl Jean-Paul. “We definitely showed some improvement as the game progressed. “I challenged our team at halftime to dig deeper and not let our circumstances dictate how we would finish the game (and) I think they definitely responded to that challenge.” ••••• Both Spartan basketball teams close out the first half of the regular season with a pair of home games at the Langley Events Centre versus the Victoria Vikes. The games begin Friday at 6 p.m. and Saturday at 3:30 p.m.

Langley United’s Trevor Williams cuts around Surrey CCB Royals’ Brabhjot Mand during a U17 boys’ soccer game at Willoughby Community Park. The teams played to a 1-1 draw.

Jhag wins Golden Boot Nine goals in five games has earned Gurmaan Jhag the Golden Boot Award. The Grade 12 student helped the Aldergrove Totems to a seventh-place finish at the B.C. high school senior boys AA soccer championships last week (Nov. 18 to 20) at the Burnaby Lake Sports Complex. The seventh-place finish was the best-ever in the school’s history. The Totems had also won the program’s first-ever Fraser Valley title earlier in the month. At provincials, the team did not lose a single game as they outscored their foes 16-3.

The Totems tied D.P. Todd and St. Thomas Aquinas, both by the score of 1-1, on the first day of the tournament. On day two, they hammered Hugh Boyd 4-0. Aldergrove and St. Thomas Aquinas were then called to the field for a penalty kick shootout to determine which team would advance to the semifinals and which would play in the seventh/eighth place game. The Totems lost 3-2. Determined to finish the season on a winning note, the Totems hammered Hugh Boyd 8-0 with Jhag scoring six of the goals to win the Golden Boot Award.

Sports Day in Canada is designed to give people a chance to try out new sports without having to commit to enrollment fees. The event is being held in communities across Canada and are presented by ParticipAction, CBC and True Sport. More than 1,400 sporting events and activities, open houses and try-it days will be held across the country. “Sport has the power to make individuals, communities and our

nation stronger,” said Kelly Murumets, the president and CEO of ParticipAction. “It provides a way for adults, children and youth to learn new skills, make new friends, and challenge themselves, all while becoming more physically active. ParticipAction is committed to inspiring Canadians to get active and participate in sport so that all Canadians are leading healthier, more active lifestyles. RBC Sports Day in Canada is a great opportunity to get people engaged.” The local Langley event will be held at the Langley Events Centre fieldhouse on Saturday (Nov. 30) from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Free info session for athletes A free athletic scholarship information session for parents and athletes will be held on Saturday (Nov. 30) at the Walnut Grove Community Centre. The community centre is located at 8889 Walnut Grove Dr. The session is designed to help athletes and their families navigate the rules of college and university athletics. They are run by Bill Green, a high school principal from Vancouver Island, as well as a college teacher. “The pathway to your dreams can be a challenging, yet wonderful experience,” Green said. “There are so many male and female athletes in B.C. who have the potential to move on to the college or university level, but never get the chance because they don’t know what to do.” There are two sessions being offered, one at 6 p.m. and the other at 7 p.m.

Welcome to the driver’s seat

Driveway goes Hollywood!

Zack Spencer reveals what turned his head week with a visit to the glitzy 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, Alexandra Straub looks at what’s cool, Bob McHugh goes green and Keith Morgan sneaks a peek at a racy compact concept. Check out the full script at drivewayBC.ca

LA-LA Land auto extravaganza LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Auto Show is full of eye-popping sights and some even include cars! It’s not difficult to have your head turned but it is a challenge to pick one’s top picks but I’m for the challenge. Nissan GT-R Nismo Nissan stole the show with not only one of the fastest cars in the world but the fastest man in the world. Olympic gold medalist and world record holder Usain Bolt was on hand as Nissan’s Director of Excitement. Usain was clearly taken with the new GT-R Nismo, there were also promises to get him one to replace his gold coloured GT-R. Power has been pumped up to 600hp taking this new Nismo version to 100 km/h in just two seconds. Look for the new GT-R in the spring of 2014. I suspect Usain will get his a bit earlier. Chevrolet Colorado The mid-size pickup truck market has been all but abandoned by the domestic automakers over the last few years leaving this category entirely to Toyota and Nissan with the Tacoma and Frontier trucks. Wait until next year and the choice will include the all-new Colorado from Chevrolet. Building off the success of the all-new full-size Silverado, the engineers have taken the same approach to this new truck. On the economy front, eventually there will be three engines to choose from. Out of gate, there is the base 2.5L 4-cylinder engine or a 3.6L V6. Subaru WRX Fans of the Subaru WRX will be very excited about the arrival of an all-new car but maybe a bit disappointed that this production model

doesn’t look very much little the sleek and sexy concept that was unveiled earlier this year. It should prove to be a capable car thanks to an all-new direct injection 2.0L 4-cylinder putting out 268hp and matched to the first 6-speed in the WRX. Subaru Legacy Concept A head Zack Spencer turning design that my sources tell me looks a lot like the production car. The metallic, almost chrome looking paint, certainly helps to make the car pop but the bold front grille and macho stance could very well be included in the final version. Lincoln MKC Lincoln has a long and distinguished history as an American premium brand but over the last few decades, it has been an extension of existing Ford products using different badging and trim. There is now a long-term plan to resurrect the Lincoln brand with all-new vehicle that use some Ford components but are developed separately from the main Ford line of products. The compact crossover MKC shares a platform with the Ford Escape but has been designed and engineered to be a very different car. The design, other than the trademark Lincoln grille is very European and the back wrap-around hatch is maybe Audi-inspired. Standard in Canada will be all-wheel-drive and adaptive suspension, matched to a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Question OF THE WEEK:

BMW 4 Series Cabriolet BMW has changed its naming: the 3 Series is now the sedan only while the coupe and convertible version are now called 4 Series. The all-new cabriolet is wider and features a new three-piece retractable hardtop and for the first time X-Drive AWD is now available on the convertible models. Interior refinements include a new neck warmer to that blows a steady stream of warm air on the front passengers neck and shoulders, helping to elongate the convertible season. Porsche Macan This small SUV is based on the same platform as the Audi Q5. This lower, sleeker and much more aggressive Macan will attract a lot of attention based purely on looks. Porsche made it very clear that this is not juts a Porsche in name but also in performance. Look for the Macan coming next year. Jaguar F-Type Jaguar made a big splash with the Jaguar F-Type convertible this year and next year we look forward to the coupe version, a dynamite looking coupe with a stunning silhouette and improved dynamics thanks to a stiffer body. The body of the car is built with extensive use of aluminum to produce the stiffest Jaguar ever made. This is one heart-pounding coupe I cannot wait to try.

Safety Tip: As road conditions become more challenging by the week, it becomes even more important to be attentive behind the wheel. If you need to make a call or send a text or email, pull over to the roadside, or use those highway rest stops to take a break. It can also help you avoid feeling fatigued.

How to get noticed at LA Auto Show

LOS ANGELES: Tinseltown. Hollywood. LA. No matter what you call it, it’s a city of millions and it’s easy to get lost in the crowd. But not if you’re attractive, have a great body and well, you shine. With hundreds of vehicles showcased at the Los Angeles Auto Show, it takes a lot to stand out amongst the plethora of sparkling sheet metal, which is constantly detailed by show workers. If you’re a sexy snake, that’s automatic grounds for attention. The SRT Viper GTS was on display, but it wasn’t just any old venom-producing reptile. It came with the Anodized Carbon Special Edition Package. Aside from 640 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque being produced from its handcrafted, all-aluminum 8.4-litre, midfront V10, it comes with the first-ever use for the Chrysler Group’s unique metallic matte exterior colour. And exclusivity is the name of its game. Only 50 will be made and they’ll be available as of January, 2014. Speaking of fast things, you don’t get any faster on feet than Usain Bolt does. And if you’re paired next to Nissan’s fastest production GT-R to date, that’s an even more potent combination. Godzilla takes on the NISMO (aka NISsan MOtorsport) badge with a healthy helping of 600-horsepower and some defining exterior features. In regards to its body, it’s more rigid than before and you’ll also find it has a “factory tuned” enhanced suspension. The aero package, which not only looks good, also improves road holding, minimizes the negative impact of drag, while giving the car a menacing and muscular appearance. If you’re a luxury German vehicle and you have a worldwide debut in LA, chances are you’ll draw quite the A-List crowd. The all-new Porsche Macan did such a thing, with visitors such as Jerry Seinfeld and professional tennis player, Maria Sharapova. The Indonesian word for tiger, it’s the first Porsche in the compact SUV segment. Or you could say it’s the baby brother to the popular-selling Cayenne. Either way, they’re both have some spice to them! Two renditions of Macan will be available: the Macan S and Macan Turbo. Standard features include active all-wheel drive and the Porsche double-clutch transmission (PDK). The Macan S is powered by a new Porsche-designed 3.0-

litre V6 bi-turbo engine that puts out 340 horsepower. The Macan Turbo hosts a 3.6-litre V6 bi-turbo engine and emits 400 horsepower. Purrrr. Practical and eye catch-

Alexandra Straub

ing? – You might not expect that from a cargo van, but when you team up with Hot Wheels, you’ll get exactly that: hot wheels! Ford paired up with Hot Wheels and had its Transit Connect XLT Cargo Van LWB beaming a custom bright

blue exterior with orange accents and custom 20-inch wheels. But the fun doesn’t stop on the outside. Sure there’s a new front fascia and grille, and even a one-off “sharkfin” roof mounted antennas supporting GPS and Satellite radio along with custom gullwing doors (which replaces the standard sliding doors), but there’s a party waiting on the inside. Alongside the custom ST seats, there’s a sleeping area and a 55-inch TV. Maybe I will try my hand at camping again, but only with this van! It wouldn’t be a California auto show without a special edition Jeep Wrangler. Complete with bronze satin gloss accentuated 18-inch wheels, a matching grille, and other dark parts, the Wrangler Dragon Edition is sure to heat things up. If the bronze bits weren’t enough of a giveaway, the large dragon graphic on the hood will surely let you know that this mythical creature means business whether on or off road. alexandra.straub@drivewaybc.ca

LOS ANGELES: While most driving enthusiasts do not recognize the advent of a self-driving car as a good thing, drivers who have to endure crowded urban parking lots and the drudgery of stop-n-go highway commutes, on a daily basis, probably have a very different view. The fully autonomous car may never become a reality for non-technical reasons. We are, however, seeing layer upon layer of new technologies that certainly move things along in that general direction and could make it technically feasible, and perhaps production feasible on a restricted basis. The new Ford Edge Concept revealed at Los Angeles Auto Show included two interesting automated driving technology advances that are currently under development by Ford ... self-parking and obstacle avoidance systems. What’s different about this advanced self-park technology is that it allows an owner to do it from outside the vehicle with a push-button remote. The vehicle can be automatically positioned in or be removed from a tight parking stall situation. That certainly beats crawling in or out of the rear hatch, when there’s not enough room to get in from a side door. This

new system builds on Ford’s current active park assist feature, which is restricted to parallel parking situations

Bob McHugh

and uses ultrasonic sensors. Using similar sensor and automated vehicle control technology, Ford engineers are also working on an advanced obstacle avoidance system. The concept vehicle detects slow-moving or stationary obstacles in the same lane ahead and warn the driver. If the driver fails to steer or brake, the system automatically brake and steer the Edge around the object. “Democratized technology” is an expression used frequently by Ford engineers. It’s about making leading-edge technologies, which traditionally took a long time to trickle-down from expensive luxury vehicles, available on popular, affordable vehicles much sooner, or even ahead of luxury class competition. Ford’s current Active Park Assist system is already available on 12 models. This sys-

tem automatically guides the vehicle into a parallel parking spot, while the driver controls the gas and brake pedals. A Lane-Keeping system is available on 11 Ford models today. This uses a forward-facing camera to scan the road surface for lane markings. The system evaluates if the vehicle is drifting out of its lane and alerts the driver by vibrating the steering wheel. If the driver does not respond, the system provides steering torque to nudge the vehicle back toward the centre of the lane. Adaptive cruise control and collision warning with brake support is available on 10 Ford models. The system uses radar to detect moving vehicles immediately ahead and modifies cruising speed if necessary. Blind Spot Information System Available on 13 Ford models. Radar sensors in the rear corners monitor the spaces next to and just behind the vehicle. On the road, these sensors trigger a warning light in the mirror when there is another vehicle in the driver’s blind spot. All of these sensor-based technologies make driving safer today and they could also be considered as building blocks for a more comprehensive automated driving system. bob.mchugh@drivewaybc.ca

Compact concept has the look and performance promise of a champ LOS ANGELES – Four-time Formula One champion driver Sebastian Vettel has his fingerprints all over the Infiniti Q30 Concept on display at this city’s international auto show. If that were literally the case, the detailing crew constantly cruising the show floor would soon remove his dabs. However, the hands-on impressions of the Infiniti-Red Bull racer are more than skin deep, extending deep into

the performance of the sporty compact. No powerplant details have been revealed for the car that will start rolling off the production line in early 2015 at Infiniti’s first European-based plant in the northeast UK city of Sunderland. However, Vettel’s involvement and input on performance specifications suggests this will be no slouch in takeoff and road handling. The Q30 Concept is the first model that

’’

the 26-year-old German driver has influenced from

start-to-finish in his role as Infiniti’s Director of Performance. And a few words on that before we take a look at the sleek auto’s design. My cynical colleagues have suggested publicly that Vettel’s title is no more than a marketing ploy, with Vettel filling no more than a celebrity spokesman role. It is most certainly not the case, based on my private conversations with some Infiniti engineers.

Sebastian Vettel at the wheel Just prior to my arrival for a drive with the young phenom on a French track this past spring, he had secretly put a number of Infiniti products and competitors through their paces and given immediate trackside input on suggested adjustments. In fact, one engineer told me Vettel is remarkable in the way he can do one lap and return with a complete commentary on how a car performed on every part of the track. If the F1 gig doesn’t work out there’s maybe a new career opp for him in the near future! The Q30 Concept is a fusion of coupe, hatchback, and crossover body styles and, like Vettel’s racecar, there’s liberal use of carbon fibre throughout. That makes it a very light, aerodynamic and thus potentially high-performing and economical car. Interestingly, I’m told the designers combined Italian coachwork with the Japanese art of calligraphy to create the lightweight design. Inside, cream and bronze leather features with violet bespoke tailoring, along with contrasting matte and gloss finished metalwork. Sculpted ceramics are integrated into the upper front seatbacks housing speakers for a “symphonic audio experience.” It offers a level of technologies and features not typically found in compact cars, such as the Infiniti InTouch infotainment system, which uses two touch screens. Infiniti claims it expects significant growth in the compact premium segment among young-minded affluent customers. Note the reference to young minded. “The Infiniti Q30 Concept is highly predictive of a new head-turning premium compact that we will launch in early 2015,” said Michael Bartsch, vice-president, Infiniti Americas. “Research among the new generation of buyers - with Gen X and Gen Y soon to represent 80 percent of the market - shows an increasing rejection of traditional notions toward premium cars. These buyers are less willing to connect size, presence and high-output power as key ingredients of the premium product. Rather, they’re looking more for balance, great design and outstanding execution.” The Q30 will likely count the Mercedes-Benz B-Class and the Lexus CT200h hybrid hatchback among its competitors. This car could be a game changer in its class. keith.morgan@drivewaybc.ca

2014 Volvo XC60 has arrived here in Canadanavia. The new Volvo XC60 has a sleek profile with sweptback headlights and raised hood give the sport ute a smart look and you don’t have to be Swedish to enjoy it. You have to hand it to the Europeans for their incredible automotive designs and attention to detail. The wheels are a standard 19-inch with an option to go with 20s, which I prefer. They really fill the wheel wells in quite nicely. Volvo has a history of having some of the safest automobiles out there but who knew they were this comfortable? My tester, XC60 T6 AWD Platinum, came equipped with fully adjustable heated leather bucket seats; leather clad 3 spoke steering wheel, center armrest with cup holders, and a leather clad shifter knob. The back seats are 40/20/40 split folding. I really like the use of alu-

minum for the inlays and the fabric that extends all the way up the B-pillars, nice touch. A high performance audio system by Volvo comes with

overhead cam, 24 valve, turbo charged and a sixspeed, geartronic auto transmission. The T-6 model features paddle shifters. An impressive 325 horsepower with 354 pound feet of torque is squeezed out of this straight six. Traction control is standard on the 2014 model and the torque vectoring system helps reduce under steer by applying brakes to the inside wheels when accelerating out of a curve in the road. Speaking about safety, the available technology package includes collision warning with full auto brake, cyclist detection, pedestrian detection, land departure warning, and distance alert. Pretty much anything dangerous gets in your way, this vehicle is going to tell you about it and react automatically. Standard safety equipment includes Whiplash protection seating

aux and IPod jack, and is Bluetooth capable plus its Sirius XM ready. The touch screen allows you to browse the internet, stream your playlist and get travel directions. The power under the hood is a 3.0 litre, inline 6 cylinder with dual

system, Tire pressure monitoring system, Side impact airbags, Driver and front passenger dual threshold airbags, Side impact protection and Inflatable side curtain air bag. Driving around the city in the XC60 not only makes you feel safe and comfortable, but there is little to no road noise inside the cab. The engine is smooth and responsive. The door seals and heavy use of sound deadening material offered a stress free driving experience. That is until I hit Vancouver’s car-clogged Cambie Street. ian.harwood@drivewaybc.ca Specs: Standard 4-year 80,000 km warranty.
