Give a gift, hang a tag on Bureau tree M O N I Q U E TA M M I N G A Time s Re po r t e r

Volunteers at the Langley Christmas Bureau say their hearts are full, thanks to the generosity of this community. “We have people, churches and organizations clambering to sponsor families,” said Jim McGregor, Christmas Bureau co-cordinator. Some organizations and churches have asked to sponsor five or six families. Many companies, sports teams and schools are in full swing, doing toy drives. It’s a good thing, too, because he predicts that they will help as many or more families in need this year as they did last year. “We have well over 550 parents registered with us already so we are on track,” he said. Last year, more than 1,800 children received a Christmas. The Gifts for Kids Tree is up at Willowbrook Shopping Centre, beside Purdy’s Chocolates. People out shopping can bring an unwrapped toy to put under the tree. They get to hang a tag on the tree specifying the gender and age of a child they helped. The bureau said teenagers are often overlooked. Teens always like hoodies, other clothing, toiletries and gift cards, McGregor suggested. Toy Days are scheduled for Dec. 16 to 18, when parents come to the bureau, at 20560 Fraser Hwy., and pick out toys and a book for each of their children. The Bureau can be reached at 604-530-3001.

Accused murderer has been returned to B.C. WOMAN ARRESTED IN DEATH OF KWANTLEN ELDER TO APPEAR IN COURT TODAY MONIQUE TAMMINGA Times Reporter

The woman accused of killing Kwantlen First Nation elder George Antone in 2011 has been returned to B.C. and has

appeared in Provincial Court in Surrey to face one charge of second-degree murder. The Integrated Homicide investigation Team announced last week that Michelle Marie

Serdar, 42,  has been charged with second-degree murder. She was arrested in Quebec City after an extensive investigation. Antone’s body was discovered

in his McMillan Island home on March 7, 2011. The 71-year-old had been shot to death. It’s believed Serdar lived on the island from time to time.

Battle over mobile home park ends

Bill MacDonald and Barb Berthelet were among a group of Forest Green Estates mobile home park residents who picketed Township city hall last July, to protest a proposed change to the park designation they fear will make it easier to redevelop. Since then, Metro Vancouver has rejected the proposed change and on Dec. 3, Township council heard that appealing the ruling would be both difficult and expensive. However, nothing prevents the property owner from redeveloping for commercial or industrial purposes, noted Councillor Kim Richter.

AFTER METRO’S REJECTION OF REZONING, ONLY DIFFICULT AND EXPENSIVE OPTIONS REMAIN, COUNCIL TOLD DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter

The Township of Langley should stop pursuing a controversial change of designation for a Walnut Grove mobile home park. That is the opinion of Township staff and some members of council, following Metro Vancouver’s rejection of a proposed residential designation for Forest Green Estates, a 160-home, 55-and-over gated park at 9080 198 St. The Township wanted to change the designation of the site from industrial “mixed use” to “general urban,” something that park residents feared would lead to their eviction because it would make it easier to build condominiums on the land. Some Forest Green residents picketed Langley Township hall in July to register their objections. The Township proceeded with the application to the Metro regional authority after holding a town hall style meeting with Forest Green residents to say the change would improve their protection.

On Oct. 15, the Metro board of directors rejected the proposal. During the Monday (Dec. 3) meeting of council, in response to questions by council, Township administrator Mark Bakken said it would be “difficult and expensive” to appeal the ruling by the regional authority. A number of councillors said park residents may be better off as a result because the site can’t be used for pricier higher-density housing. “[If the property becomes residential] you’re going to raise the value of the land and those people are going to be kicked out,” Bob Long said. But there is nothing to prevent the owners from redeveloping the site for industrial or commercial purposes, councillor Kim Richter added. “What they’ve got now is only half the protection they need,” Richter said. Metro rejected the re-designation to residential because staff at the regional authority said that would lead to the loss of already-scarce industrial land.

Langley parents sue police for son’s fatal crash CIVIL CLAIM ACCUSES ABBOTSFORD POLICE OF ‘HARASSMENT AND INTIMIDATION’ VIK KI H O P E S Bla ck Pre s s

The parents of a man killed in a high-speed crash in June 2011 are suing the Abbotsford Police Department (APD) and the RCMP, saying they contributed to his death. In a notice of civil claim filed Nov. 26 in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver, Roger and Gillian Pinette, of Langley, claim that their son, Jeremy, 32, lost control of his vehicle while being pursued by police on Highway 1 in Langley. They state that Jeremy, who lived in Abbotsford, had friends who were members or associates of the Hells Angels. Members of the APD and RCMP “repeatedly approached” him, starting in

2008, to become an informant, they allege. When he refused, the police began a campaign of “harassment and intimidation,” according to the Pinettes’ claim. According to the court documents, this included searching his vehicle without cause, slashing the tires on a truck he was driving, and threatening to tell his friends that he was an informant if he did not provide them with information. “The harassment caused him anxiety and fear for his personal safety, his reputation and his property,” the notice of civil claim states. On June 4, 2011, Jeremy was driving his Dodge Viper west on

56 Avenue at 272 Street in Aldergrove when he was spotted by police. He then entered the freeway at 264 Street, heading west, and crashed into the grassy median on Highway 1 at 248 Street. He was estimated to have been traveling at speeds of 160 km/h. His vehicle rolled over and pinned him, killing him instantly. Police, at the time, said that although they had spotted him on 56 Avenue and turned on their emergency equipment, they lost sight of him and did not pursue him. However, the Pinettes allege that police misled them about the circumstances, and they received conflicting reports over the next several months about

the incident. Among the information they say they received in the months following the crash was that Jeremy was pursued along the onramp onto the freeway and by another officer while he was on Highway 1. The Pinettes claim that police concealed records from them, including refusing to provide GPS data and recordings of audio transmissions from the RCMP. They said this caused them emotional distress, led to them receiving delayed information about the circumstances of their son’s death, and postponed their efforts to obtain legal advice. “When relaying the circumstances leading to the death of

a loved one, the police have a duty to the deceased’s next of kin to relay those circumstances in good faith and with candor and to take reasonable care to ensure the accuracy of the information relayed,” the notice of civil claim states. The Pinettes are seeking general, special and punitive damages for the loss of their son’s life and the future income he would have provided, as well as for the emotional distress they say they endured over the alleged misinformation they received. The allegations in the lawsuit have not yet been proven in court. A response to the claim has not yet been filed by the APD or the RCMP.

DAN FER GUSON Tim es Reporter

Eight months after a crackdown on illegal secondary suites was approved, Langley Township investigators have opened about 50 files. The slow start is blamed on a lack of enforcement staff and a surge of applications to license secondary suites. A staff update was presented to council on Monday, Nov. 4 by Beverly Weller, Licence and Inspection Services Co-ordinator for Community Development. In response to a question by councillor Charlie Fox, Weller estimated “50 to 60 files” on suspected illegal suites have been opened since Township council approved “a more proactive approach in enforcing unauthorized secondary suites” in March of this year. That was the same time council imposed an annual secondary suite licence fee on homeowners with authorized suites. Councillor Kim Richter said the new licence fees were approved with the understanding the Township would use the revenue to go after the estimated 10,000 to 12,000 illegal secondary suites operating in Langley. “I’m a little bit disappointed

with the numbers,” said Richter. “We’ve got to show good faith to the owners of legal suites.” Richter said she would like to see at least half of the illegal suites identified by the end of next year. “We do need to see some signs of significant progress.” Richter was the only member of council to vote against the fees back in March, saying the 1,000 homeowners who have properly registered their suites would be the first to pay as much as $580 a year. Weller said the slow start was because staff have been busy fielding time-consuming licence applications under the new rules from owners of secondary suites. Staff have proposed adding one full-time enforcement officer to hunt for illegal suites, but that won’t be decided until next year’s municipal budget is set. The new rules allow staff to go looking for illegal secondary suites instead of waiting for someone to complain about them. During a one-week period, Weller said Township staff located 15 to 20 illicit secondary suites just by looking through online rental ads. The new rules also allow peo-

ple to make anonymous complaints. A homeowner with an illegal second suite could face fines of up to $500 a day. Township administrator Mark Bakken said the new regulations should generate enough revenue to cover the cost of stepped-up enforcement, but it will probably take a year before enough money is coming in. “The challenge is going to be the cash flow,” Bakken said. “[But] at the end of the day, it’s going to finance itself.” Back in March, staff were estimating the new suite fees will bring in $203,650 (after expenses) this year, rising to $667,400 by 2015. Councillor Bob Long said the Township should be careful to avoid “funding an army” to enforce the new rules. “There’s a lot of staff time involved,” Long warned. “It’s a ton of work.” Staff are scheduled to prepare a progress review for presentation to council early next year that will include “recommendations relating to alternative enforcement approaches as necessary to ensure that unauthorized suites are brought into compliance with Township bylaws.”

The current minimum of three parking spaces required for Langley houses with legal secondary suites is too small and should be boosted to four, councillor Kim Richter said on Nov. 18. Richter was able to convince the rest of council to take a look at raising the minimum during the afternoon meeting of council. But she was unable to convince them to impose a higher minimum on a major new neighbourhood development with secondary suites during the evening meeting. She said three parking spaces are not enough because owners of most houses with secondary suites tend to have at least two vehicles of their own and are renting to couples who also have two vehicles. The result has been a spillover of cars and trucks onto

D AN FERGU SO N Ti m e s Re po r t e r

A tree that honours the memory of the late John Jeffery has been planted on the west side of Douglas Park, a few steps away from his last home. From his top-floor James Court suite, the last surviving founding father of Langley City had an excellent view of the park he helped create. A plaque in front of the tree describes Jeffery as “a pioneer, a founding father and a Freeman of the City of Langley.” It notes that he was instrumental in the incorporation of the City of Langley in 1955 and a member of the first city council. On Wednesday (Nov. 27), the tree was formally dedicated. About 30 people were present, including Jeffery’s son Bryce, who described his community-activist father as an “immigrant guy from London” who loved Langley and battled the “mini-brained non-wisdom of those who cannot see the light” to create Douglas Park from a soccer pitch. The son took the opportunity to call for action to correct “the problems of drugs, homelessness and urban special problems” seen in the park. “In the name of each of us here and my father, let’s regroup and see what we can do, municipally and provincially, to set right what we see on a daily basis before us,” Jeffery said. “Would it not be wonderful to see in the near future this park, this city, this province awash with mental wellness, with a citizenry who is not living in dumpsters but instead is employed in meaningful and satisfying ways?” He went to express gratitude on behalf of his entire family for the memorial. “My father loved this city,” Jeffery said. “There are regions of the world with better weather, more entertainment, but there was nowhere else he wanted to go.” Those present for the event included Jeffery’s granddaughter Coralie Jeffery, daughter-in-law Marianne Jeffery, family friends and members of Langley City council including acting Mayor Ted Schaffer and past mayor Joe Lopushinsky. Jeffery passed away Jan. 19 at the age of 91. A realtor, notary public and insurance agent who once wrote for the Vancouver Sun, Jeffery served with the RCAF and later became president of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 21. He was also president of the Langley Junior Chamber of Commerce, president of Langley Red Cross, vice president of the Langley Board of Trade and president of Langley Amateur Athletic Association (through which he helped the municipality develop Douglas Park). Jeffery was perhaps best known for being a driving force behind the incorporation of the City of Langley. According to him, the City was not formed over a dispute about streetlights, but because, among other reasons, sewage was flowing freely in its ditches. - with files from Brenda Anderson

Question langeytimes.com

Is it too soon to urge a little peace and good will this Christmas? Probably not. We’ve all seen the alternative, and it isn’t pretty. Some of us, it seems, are so busy pursuing the material side of the holidays that we’ve lost sight of the spirit. Stressed-out shoppers grimly hunting bargains in the aisles, screaming kids with surly parents and couples who look like they’re going to a funeral instead of experiencing the joy of the season. In short, people who bring their bad mood into a retail outlet to share with the staff and other consumers. Examples of bad behavior abound, as Times columnist Jim McGregor describes on this page. While this can be a tough time of year if your finances are tight, it doesn’t have to be a fiscal or emotional crisis. After all, the most expensive item in the store is no gift at all if the giver is grinding their teeth about the cost and the resulting damage to their credit rating. There’s nothing intrinsically wrong about giving big gifts, but not at the cost of civility and peace of mind. There are any number of inexpensive ways of celebrating the holiday season that don’t require busting your bank balance or losing your mind. Try asking the people in the stores, nicely, and you might discover some clever alternatives. So this Christmas, a suggestion: if you feel yourself starting to get anxious or angry, pause and take a deep breath and try to keep things in their proper perspective. Try smiling. Do something nice like holding a door open or letting a driver merge in front. It doesn’t cost a thing. Keep in mind, this is all supposed to be honouring the memory of someone who lived an impoverished life devoted to the less fortunate. Someone whose sacrifice might be better celebrated with a little more gratitude for the people in our lives and a little less drama at the tills this season.

Answer online at www.langleytimes.com

A one-track mind they

Commuters in Burnaby and New Westminster are pretty well served by transit. That is if they happen to live close to one of the 16 SkyTrain stations along the two lines serving our communities and happen to be travelling to Vancouver or a destination that’s also convenient to SkyTrain. A trip to South Surrey, or Delta or anywhere in the Fraser Valley beyond King George Station, the easternmost SkyTrain stop, can be an arduous adventure of tenuous bus connections and heavy traffic that can take hours. There’s no doubt SkyTrain has changed the landscape of Metro Vancouver since the Expo line was opened in 1986. The extension of a fourth line out to Coquitlam from Burnaby by 2016 will change it yet again. Huge town centres have grown up around SkyTrain stations and more are being developed, especially along the Millennium Line through Brentwood and the Brewery District in Sapperton. But one thing SkyTrain hasn’t done is ease traffic congestion. A recent survey by the GPS software company TomTom said Vancouver’s traffic is the worst in North America. Worse than L.A. Worse than New York City. That’s despite the investment of billions of dollars to build the SkyTrain system. SkyTrain is based upon the premise that most commuters are travelling from the nearby suburbs to jobs in Vancouver or elsewhere along its three lines. But the daily commute is more complicated than that. Particularly as jobs migrate out of the downtown core to commercial and industrial developments in outlying communities where land is cheaper. A pitch by Surrey mayor Diane Watts for light rail transit lines in her city is a good start. It should be heeded. It’s time for TransLink to get away from its one-track emphasis on SkyTrain. – New Westminster Newsleader

We are crushing an investor who has a holistic view of the village’s commercial core and who has put together a progressive, environmentally friendly building. The project adds critical business capacity to the village as well as residences, needed office space and verymuch needed public washrooms. Who among the naysayers is prepared to table a $12 million package which adds so much to the business core. After finding a court to hear the petition and the judge stopped the job, did the Fort Langley Residents for Sustainable Development advise the judge that well over $1 million had already been spent and that a significant number of jobs would be lost? Was the judge advised that the silent majority wants more development in the village? We need an improved variety of businesses here to support modern living. Did the FLRSD foresee a big hole in the ground at the village centre for a year or much longer? Do they volunteer to pay for this mess, the inconvenience to all of us and to the wasted cost of a stalled construction site? The true heritage element of

Fort Langley is the fort itself and the federal government protects that. The present business and professional services core of the village is narrow in scope. Investors such as Eric Woodward have the courage and foresight to broaden the business spectrum. This is not 1959. Modern real estate values and municipal building codes (for our protection) make oneand two-storey new buildings with underground parking financially impossible. Indeed, the older one- and two-storey buildings throughout the Village were built as basic necessity structures at the time, and to safety codes now obsolete. If the wish is to keep these older, basic buildings or build similar new ones, then a heritage society needs to step up, buy the properties and subsidize their operation into the future. I oppose a taxpayer subsidy for that. For its part, Township Council needs to “protect its young,” appeal this ruling to the court, and do whatever needs to be done to update the OCP and let the project proceed. Building design certainly can be in a heritage style for pleasing aesthetics, but, Fort Langley needs to progress with the rest of the Lower Mainland. The Coulter Berry Building was approved by an elected council. Let’s get on with it. John Allan Fort Langley

Editor: I would like to take this opportunity to thank a very special lady for her act of kindness at the Aldergrove Safeway store recently. I returned my shopping cart to the returns area and did not realize until I got home that I had left my purse in it. Our friend (Harvey Schultz) had died suddenly on Friday and I was

distracted with memories of seeing him shopping in Aldergrove. I had left my purse open and its contents were visible — my wallet with cash showing, my passport and credit cards and cheque book.  A cornucopia of goodies for a less-thanhonest person. Apparently a lady rushed into the store with my purse, asking them to

Euthenasia the ultimate bullying Editor: Thank goodness the polls show the majority of people do not want to decriminalize our law banning the practise of euthanasia. Those who are advocating this killing will not be the ones who do the killing, they will have the doctors do it forcefully. This would be the ultimate bullying. Eunice Wingenbach Langley

keep it in a safe place. The staff at Safeway were amazed at such honesty. I am truly grateful to you for returning my purse. But more than that, thank you  for showing so may people today that one individual — yourself — made the   world  a better place today. Pamela Omelaniec Langley

‘Snail mail’ crawled across southern Africa Editor: This is not intended as a complaint or a means of ridiculing the postal department. I know they handle a million pieces daily and one or two must go astray. I received a phone call from my cousin in Cape Town on Oct. 3 to say that the letter I mailed her in March had just arrived. I asked her to mail the envelope back to me, which I received Oct. 17. We are both in our 80s and use snail mail. But in this case, did they have to send the snail via Lusaka, Zambia? Bill Walker Langley

Theft of Christmas lights the action of a ‘jackass’ Editor: I live by City Park and I just want to say I’ve seen a lot of crazy over here — like the guy knocking on my door asking for shelter and food with a grin on his face. You’ve got to be kidding.

Then I wake up this morning to find that some jackass has stolen my icicle lights off my tree. If you liked them that much why don’t you get off your ass and get a job and buy your own?

I guess we who live in the city are going to have to barricade our yards soon like they do in South Africa. Then no one will be able to see the pretty lights. Colleen Burr Langley City

So many ways to give back Editor: It seems that Christmas is now fast approaching and we are all stressed about at what gifts to buy. Yet, we are forgetting the true meaning of Christmas.   Sure, it’s nice to get gifts and money and all the materialistic things. But we are forgetting that Christmas isn’t about the presents or the tree or the snow.   It is about spending time together, with friends and family, and giving to those who are less fortunate.   We are becoming more selfish. This Christmas, think about those less fortunate and give.   Give love, and your time to friends, family, and those who don’t have anyone.   You may volunteer at your local food kitche n or shelter.   If you don’t have time for that, give some food or clothes to your local collection bank.   Remember, materialistic things don’t last forever; love and kindness do.

TIP OF THE WEEK

Determined to Move You

This week’s tip: Start a “tradition” by giving every person a Christmas “job” to do. Setting the Christmas table was my job. My sister decorated the front door, my brother the Christmas Village. These “traditions” are my best Christmas memories and are now being passed on to the little ones to start their own traditions.

TransLink is being criticized by its independent regulator for its decision to inappropriately sell off surplus property to avoid transit service cuts or fare increases. TransLink commissioner Robert Irwin issued that warning in his review of the transportation authority’s new 2014 plan and outlook, but also noted the move is unavoidable because there’s no deal yet with the province to approve new revenue sources. “The sale of assets to support operations is not prudent fiscal policy,” his report says. “The only other recourse for TransLink would be fare increases or service reductions in the absence of additional funding sources.” TransLink has been drawing down its cumulative reserve on the basis new funding would be approved in time to avert cuts. But the province’s decision that there be a referendum in 2014 on new sources has delayed the expected arrival of sustainable funding and cast doubt on whether it will be approved. TransLink envisions selling major unused properties to raise $40 million in 2016 and

$110 million in 2017 to maintain its reserve at at least 10 per cent of its budget. Mayors argue money from real estate sales should be set aside for new capital projects, rather than being bled away to keep the system running. “It’s just the worst strategy,” Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie said. “All you’re really doing is deferring a problem and increasing the downward spiral.” While transit service would be maintained at current levels under the plan, Irwin notes it will not keep up with the region’s rising population, meaning riders can expect deteriorating conditions. Transit service hours per capita are projected to decline back to 2007 levels by 2016 and to 2004 levels by 2020. Irwin also flagged rising labour costs as a concern after a new three-year contract signed earlier this year lifted wages for bus drivers and other unionized staff. TransLink’s $1.44 billion in annual revenue comes mainly from fares, property taxes and its 17-cent-a-litre fuel tax. Mayors have requested a new source, such as a vehicle levy, a small regional sales tax, a share of the carbon tax or, eventually,

road pricing. George Heyman, the NDP’s critic on TransLink, said the government’s insistence on a referendum on new sources will condemn transit riders to worse overcrowding and longer waits in the years ahead. The commissioner also warned TransLink’s bus replacement program may be derailed if Metro Vancouver politicians block the continued allocation to TransLink of 100 per cent of federal gas tax transfers, set to be renewed next spring. That money can only be spent on capital projects, not operating costs. Metro mayors have criticized TransLink’s capital spending priorities in the past and have indicated they may seek to instead channel some of the federal gas tax money to municipal or regional projects, such as sewage treatment plant replacements. TransLink plans to spend $367 million from the federal transfers to buy new buses and upgrade SkyTrain infrastructure. Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan has challenged the recent choice to buy compressed natural gas buses, which he suspects is a politically motivated decision linked to the province’s natural gas strategy.

Ruby Figueroa snuggles with her father during a weekend visit.

Cars rush by along busy 88 Avenue in Walnut Grove, and the world marches forward while José Figueroa can only look out the window of the Walnut Grove church where he sought sanctuary two months ago. He can’t step outside to enjoy a moment in the sun, or take his kids to school, or go to work. Every day is much like the day before. Figueroa sleeps in a single bed in one of the office spaces at Walnut Grove Lutheran Church. He can use their kitchen to feed himself and there is one shower there to stay clean. His wife Ivania and their three children visit at least once a week, sometimes the kids stay overnight. “They play hide-and-go-seek and run around,” said Figueroa. On Sunday mornings, the whole family worships together, gathered with a congregation and pastor

who support them. Most days Figueroa can be found in the church’s boardroom, working feverishly on his laptop, researching ways he can stay with his family and fight a deportation order against him. He is well versed in legal terminology now. Figueroa came to Canada legally more than 16 years ago from El Salvador. He raised his family here. But then in 2010, Immigration Canada decided to look into his status in this country. They determined that his affiliation as a university student with a group fighting the dictatorship in his home country was reason enough to consider him a risk. Since then, his world has turned upside down. Despite his pleas, hiring of lawyers and support from many politicians, he was ordered deported this year. When the Canadian Border Services Agency put out a war-

rant for his arrest in September, he sought sanctuary in the church. Figueroa says members of the CBSA come by every day to check that he hasn’t stepped outside the building. If he did, they would make an arrest, and send him to a detention centre to await his hearing, which is set for Jan. 15. On that day in 2014, Figueroa’s lawyer will ask that he be allowed to stay in the country on humanitarian grounds. The Figueroas have three children, José Jr., Esmeralda and Ruby. They were born at Langley Memorial Hospital. Now, they come to visit their dad on the weekends because they all attend school during the week. The girls like to stay overnight. “I don’t know how we managed to fit Esmeralda, Ruby and myself into a tiny bed, I almost fell off a couple of times,” said Figueroa. “Being in sanctuary gives me the comfort that at least I will be able to see them once a week.” A personal trainer comes three times a week to see Figueroa, volunteering his time, to exercise with him. Figueroa said he is starting to miss the freedom of being able to go wherever he wants. He misses conversing with people and urges people to come visit.

rally outside the Walnut Grove church on Oct. 12 and many rallies have taken place outside the CBSA offices in Vancouver and in Ottawa. Many continue to write letters, to rally and to post videos on YouTube. In 2012, Immigration Canada ruled that it would deport Figueroa based on his past affiliation as a student in El Salvador with the left-wing Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front (FMLN) during the civil war. The FMLN is now the democratically elected government of El Salvador. To that end, in October the Supreme Court of Canada agreed with Figueroas lawyer, that the FMLN is not on any terrorist lists in Canada, and therefore, the deportation order would be stayed until the Jan. 15 hearing. Langley MP Mark Warawa said Figueroa poses no risk to Canadians and is a benefit to society, working all these years to provide for his family. If Figueroa is deported, his wife, who has been granted permanent residency status, will have to raise their three young children by herself. The Figueroas came to Canada legally 16 years ago. The ‘We Are José’ support group spans several countries, and is supported by celebrities and many politicians.

Crime rates are down across Langley City and Township, according to Langley RCMP’s most recent quarterly update. “For the most part, this is a very positive report,” Langley RCMP Supt. Derek Cooke told Langley City Council on Monday evening. While outlook at the beginning of the year wasn’t as promising, Cooke told council that year-to-date statistics for 2013 show “significant decreases” compared with the same time period in 2012.

sions from our LNG production shouldn’t count. “We haven’t said we won’t count them,” Polak replied. “What the premier’s talked about and I’ve talked about is that this whole issue of how one accounts for greenhouse gases in a particular region is one that is constantly evolving. There are regularly changes to the international standards for accounting for these things and reporting them. And certainly the ability for one jurisdiction to impact positively on the GHG emissions of another, we think is appropriately considered in how one accounts for these things.” Clark visited the Jiangsu LNG import facility in China that could be a key export destination. Globe and Mail China correspondent Nathan Vanderklippe covered the premier’s visit. He reports that the gas being imported at Jiangsu isn’t replacing coal. It’s being used in addition to coal in peak demand periods. Clark also visited Japan, another key customer for LNG. The whole world knows why Japan needs new energy sources. It needs to replace production from its disaster-tainted nuclear facilities. Will B.C. LNG be part of the solution to human-induced climate change? On the evidence so far, the answer is no.

According to Cooke, auto theft in the area is down a “whopping” 27 per cent compared with last year, person offences — such as assault, homicide or sexual offences — have dropped 16 per cent and arson rates have also fallen by 25 per cent. Although crime numbers are down overall, instances of fraud have risen 32 per cent, a statistic that Cooke calls “troubling,” pointing to a significant number of mail thefts that have led to more stolen cheques, credit cards and identity theft.

Langley schools leading way on organic waste PROGRAM ‘NOT ALWAYS EASIEST, BUT THE RIGHT THING TO DO’ MO N I Q U E TA M M I N G A Ti me s Re po r t e r

By 2015, Metro Vancouver will refuse organic waste at all waste stations. With that in mind, Langley School District was trying to get ahead of the game when it implemented the organic waste diversion program last year in almost every school. The pilot program started at Walnut Grove Secondary and Fort Langley Elementary because students at both schools came to the district, demanding it do better with its waste disposal. Since those students championed the project, it has been rolled out at 80 per cent of schools in the district, said district administrator Debby Sansome, who was in charge of the waste diversion program. The waste diversion won an award from Metro Vancouver earlier this year. “We have done so much more compared to other districts. We amazed the Recycling Association of Canada,” said Sansome. “It’s not always the easiest thing to do but it’s the right thing to do.”

Schools got rid of their garbage cans in classrooms and opted for the three-bin system around the school site, which offers a container for organic waste, one for mixed recycling and one for garbage. Green Teams, made up of students, were set up at each school involved in the hope they could help promote a new way of looking at garbage. SuperSave has been chosen to take away the organic waste because of its close proximity to Langley. Its plant is in Delta. The waste will be converted into turf, said Sansome. But there have been challenges with the conversion that everyone is facing. Mainly it is fruit flies. Most schools had a terrible time with fruit flies around the organic waste. Other challenges included resistance from some schools, challenges with the unions on handling the bins and not having enough stations. Sansome said the district ordered more stations for next year and liners should help with the fruit flies. There is no word on the cost of the stations.

‘CHOICE’ SCHOOL OFFERS FLEXIBLE LEARNING FOR STUDENTS WITH RANGE OF SPECIAL NEEDS

www.aldergrovestar.com

In 1997, Langley school district opened up the first virtual learning school in B.C., called Lochiel U-Connect for K to Grade 9. Lochiel principal Sarban Sangha was in front of the board of education on Tuesday telling them about the school’s successes and the need to grow it to K to 12. “Lochiel’s future is bright,” said Sangha. Currently there are 200 students who go to Lochiel. “We teach face-to-face, online and students are home schooled,” said Sangha. “We offer a parallel path for students who didn’t like traditional schooling. “Twenty per cent of our students are special needs and an increasing amount of our students have anxiety. They find this type of schooling makes them feel safe.” The majority of students are from Langley, a few come from Abbotsford, seven from Tri-Cities, some from Surrey.

Most attendees had less than five years’ farming experience, if any at all. Currently, only 55 per cent of Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) property in Langley is farmed, and 73 per cent of all ALR parcels in the Township are smaller than 10 acres.

Curtis Stone, a small plot farmer from Kelowna spoke to more than 400 people at a workshop hosted by the Langley Sustainable Agriculture Foundation last weekend. Stone grows up to 50 crops on several plots of land, which are all less than an acre in size.

owner/operator does the majority of the work from planting to market sales, and often facilitate higher profit margins through consumer-direct sales. He says knowing your market, what they’ll buy and how much you can sell is key. SPIN farming allows new producers to grow as they go, recapitalizing and expanding as cash returns come in from quick-producing high-value

crops like micro greens or kale. “The best way to learn is to just do it,” said Stone, who, unlike many farmers, currently holds no debt related to his operations. “Start small and start simple,” he advised workshop participants. “Good farmers are detail orientated,” said professional agrologist Gary Rolston. “They do the small things right.” Rolston, of Vancouver Island’s From the Ground Up agricultural consulting, gave Saturday’s group a run-down of how to prepare a plan for turning idle land into a business. He said attending events like the workshop is crucial to tapping into local farming knowledge, which varies based on location. “You won’t find all the information if you just go online.”

Every year, thousands of immigrants arrive in Metro Vancouver, with great ambitions for their family’s future. However, many of them face culture shock about the realities of Canadian living — from continuing education to obtaining employment to getting settled into day-to-day life. The goal of the fair is to inform and motivate new Canadians as they begin and continue their settlement journey. It aims to provide essential information and tips on job hunting, accreditation, upgrading of education, settling in and more. The fourth annual Career, Education and Settlement Fair, which is presented by Canadian Immigrant magazine and Scotiabank, will be held Dec. 16 at the Vancouver Public Library from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. “With a three-pronged approach of settlement, careers and education, our fair brings to life our mission to provide resources for new Canadians to succeed,” says Gautam Sharma, publisher of Canadian Immigrant. Various exhibitor booths will be located in the open, main promenade and lower-level rooms of the amazing

venue, featuring information about colleges, training, settlement resources and careers/employers. In addition, there will be several interactive, speakers’ workshops led by experts in various fields of interest to new Canadians. Renowned diversity expert, former reporter and bestselling author Gobinder Gill will offer a keynote address on the “8 Key Steps to Getting Hired.” There will also be an interactive Accent Reduction Workshop with expert Andy Krieger. Other speakers will present discussions on foreign credentials, job search strategies, finances in Canada and more. Other highlights include an onsite resumé clinic run by Immigrant Services Society of B.C., where attendees can seek one-on-one help on how to write Canadian-style resumés. There will also be speed mentoring sessions to help newcomers get some faceto-face advice from immigrants who have walked in their shoes and succeeded in Canada. Space is still available for exhibitors. Those interested can contact Alla Gordeeva at 778-558-3397 or at alla@ canadianimmigrant.ca.

A phasing-in strategy was also adopted to provide a graduated fee schedule for owners of existing authorized suites, where building permit applications were submitted for the secondary suite on or before March 5, 2013. The reduced annual fee of $175 will be in effect for the first three years unless the property is sold. Secondary suites that qualify for the reduced rate program will not be charged the additional 30 per cent utility fees until July, 2014. The deadline to qualify for the three-year reduced rate for property owners with existing authorized suites is fast approaching. Letters have been issued by the Township, reminding secondary suite owners who received building permit applications before March 5 to take advantage of the three year reduced rate by submitting their application and payment before December 31, 2013. Please note that departments within the Township’s Civic Facility will be closed between Christmas and New Year’s Day. However, applications and payments by cheque can be dropped off at the Customer Service Counter or in the overnight Drop Box. Unlicensed suites will be proactively enforced and property owners who do not bring unauthorized secondary suites into compliance with Township bylaws and the BC Building Code could be fined up to $500 per day until compliance is obtained.

Getting into the holiday spirit at Portrait’s Silver Ridge By Kerry Vital

On Monday Dec. 16, the homeowners at Portrait Homes’ Silver Ridge community will demonstrate their Christmas spirit with a decorating contest. “This is our fourth annual display contest,” says Robert Grimm, principal at Portrait Homes. “We started the event to

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

encourage homeowners to get into the Christmas spirit.” Silver Ridge is located in Maple Ridge, and among the judges will be Mayor Ernie Daykin. He will be joined by members of the Portrait Homes management team, and prizes from local merchants, including Chameleon Cafe, Golden Ears Cheeseworks and the Maple Ridge Art Gallery, will be handed out to the first, second and third prize winners. “What triggered us to start this event was the effort some of our homeowners went through in decorating their homes and we thought, wouldn’t it be great to get more people into the

Christmas spirit?” asks Grimm. Homeowners are encouraged to use lights and other decor items to make a festive display. Decorating has already started, and anticipation is building as the 16th nears. Silver Ridge is a 105-acre master-planned community. The latest phase is Hampstead, a collection of four- and fivebedroom single-family homes. Portrait Homes has been the recipient of many awards for Silver Ridge, including 27 Gold Georgies. Among the awards is Best Residential Development in B.C. and Best Residential Community in Canada. Portrait itself has been the winner of the Customer Choice Awards for 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2011, and Best Single Family Home Builder in British Columbia for 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2011. For more information about Hampstead at Silver Ridge, visit www.portraithomes.ca/communities/hampstead or call 604466-9278.

Among the gorgeous features you’ll find at G3 are stainless-steel appliances, laminate hardwood flooring and quartz countertops. The eating bar, above, is convenient for entertaining or a quick bite to eat, while the living areas, above right, and bedrooms, below right, are spacious and inviting.

Everything is in the details in homes at G3 in Surrey By Kerry Vital

Three is a lucky number at G3, an exciting condominium development in Surrey’s Guildford neighbourhood that features three buildings with a huge variety of floorplans that will definitely suit the needs of all discerning buyers. “The quality here is excellent,” says sales manager Margaret Bird. “It’s been especially appealing to first-time buyers.”

Announcing the RENO ME!

G3 offers studio to two-bedroom homes, with several floorplans available. One of the most impressive things about the development is the beautiful views from some of the homes. “From the north-facing homes you can see the (North Shore) mountains,” says Bird. “From the east-facing homes, you can see Mount Baker and that area. It’s gorgeous.” Some of the other beautiful features of the homes at G3 include stainless-steel appliances, quartz countertops and an eating bar; a convenient touch for those on-thego or who enjoy entertaining. Soft-closing cabinetry with brushed nickel hardware is perfectly lit by the ceiling mounted track lighting and pendant lights. Laminate hardwood flooring is featured throughout the living areas, with lush carpeting in the bedrooms and imported

porcelain tile in the kitchen, entry and bathrooms. The bathrooms are elegant and luxurious, with a deep soaker tub, semi-frameless glass shower and chic wall-mounted vanity light. Homeowners can still choose between two designer colour schemes, Sterling and Onyx, and will enjoy the nine-foot ceilings (higher on the top floor) and convenient frontloading washer and dryers that come with every home. Oversized storage and parking is also included. “It’s a beautiful package,” Bird says. Residents will also have access to the G3 residents lounge, which will include a gym, fireside lounge and a guest suite, among other things. G3’s location is one of the top draws for buyers. “You can walk to everything,” says Bird.

CONGRATULATIONS! Congratulations to Grand Cong gra win w Prize winner, Melissa Tolsma!

You’re also within walking distance of parks, schools, shopping and restaurants. “Location is key,” says Bird. “These are the only new condos in the Guildford area. We’ve seen a huge draw from Fraser Heights with parents wanting their kids to live nearby. You’re within walking distance to so much.” Available homes at G3 start at $149,900 for a studio, $169,900 for a one-bedroom and $219,900 for a two-bedroom.

The Langley atom A4 Eagles know what they are capable of on the ice. And now they know what they can do off the ice as well. The Langley Minor Hockey Association team spent a recent Saturday (Nov. 23) afternoon going door-to-door collecting food and money donations for the Langley Food Bank. And in just over an hour — the same time it takes to play a hockey game, minus the stoppages in play — the team of 10 and 11-year-olds managed to collect 363 pounds of food and $375. “We wanted to do something to give back to the community who gives gives us a lot of support and we wanted the players to be involved,” explained team manager Christine Hylands, who co-ordinated the activity. “It was wonderful to see how excited the boys were with every can, every box, and every dollar they received. “They really learned the power of working together as a team.”

Kitchens in the four bedroom townhomes measure a huge 16’x16’,

and include lots of highly sought after features like five burner gas cooktops, double wall ovens, quartz countertops with glass backsplash and custom shaker style cabinetry. Most units also feature a 4’x4’ island with an optional built in wine fridge. From the high quality 39oz carpet throughout the upper floors, to the 2” wide window blinds and the 9’ high ceilings, it’s evident from the moment you step in the door that it’s the attention to detail that makes the difference. The story doesn’t stop there, all the bathrooms at Zen feature quartz countertops, and under

cabinet lighting, while master bathrooms also include doublewide glass showers and a luxurious warming towel bar. A unique feature that always gets attention is the ‘Makeup Vanity’ that provides extra counter space for cosmetic and wellness items, plus an additional four electrical outlets. Because our West Coast lifestyle means we spend so much of our time outdoors, Zen is designed to make the most of it. The thoughtful landscaping includes open green spaces with walkways that are perfect for that after dinner stroll. With full natural gas barbeque hookups gives the chef in the family a chance to show off their culinary skills while friends and family relax on the oversized 8’x 20’ sundecks. Parking is easy too, with double, and tandem garages and lots of visitor parking for those memorable family gatherings. Other kinds of entertainment are catered for as well. The Zenterra

Signature Entertainment Wall features a custom Italian stone finished fireplace, and offers all the interconnectivity options that today’s buyers demand. Despite the feeling of tranquility that living at Zen provides, the location couldn’t be more convenient. With a few minutes drive there are literally hundreds of shopping options, from quaint sidewalk cafes to Willowbrook Mall and Costco. Zen is also a finalist in the Best Interior Design Display Suite (Single or Multi Family), Best Sales Centre and Best Project Identity categories. While the final Georgie winners will not be announced until the awards ceremony on February 1, 2014, Zen is a winner with buyers. Sales have been brisk and once you’ve checked it out, it’s easy to see why Zen has been selected as a Georgie finalist.

Lelem’: A new place to ‘come together’ ALYS S A O ’ DE L L Ti me s Re po r t e r

A traditional blanketing and blessing ceremony Saturday marked the upcoming opening of Fort Langley’s Lelem’ arts and cultural cafe, a wholly-Kwantlen First Nation owned venture almost a year in the making. “It’s a really flexible space and the idea is to create community — to bridge the gap between the Kwantlen community and the Langley community,” said Drew Atkins, project manager with Seyem’ Qwantlen Development Ltd., which spearheaded the venture. Lelem’ — pronounced “laylam” and meaning home or place to come together — is set to open officially on Saturday (Dec. 7). “It’s just a way of reminding people that the Kwantlen people have been here,” said Atkins. Pointing to the large wooden conference table inlaid with glass and displaying arrow heads and

restaurants and even running his own venture. He now lives close to Lelem’ in Fort Langley and is excited about the local focus

of the business, which will feature cuisine with a First Nation’s twist. “Everything’s freshly made,” said Schigas. “We’re making everything from the mayonnaise on up.” “Traditionally, First Nations people gathered food that was available to them so everything was local, everything was seasonal and everything was fresh,” explained Atkins. “It’s the same kind of idea [here]. We’re using a lot of game. We’re using a lot of things that are produced locally.” “It’s unlike anything that’s available in Langley right now.” The cafe will be open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner, serving up everything from house-made breads, soups and locally sourced meats from the Fraser Valley. The menu will also feature JJ Bean coffee and cheese from Golden Ears Cheese and Milner Cheeses. “The whole philosophy is very environmental-

ly friendly as well, based on Kwantlen beliefs,” said Schigas, referencing the distinct lack of straws, sugar packets and bottled water at Lelem’. The walls of the cafe and cultural centre display work for sale from First Nations artists and the space includes a bright and technology-friendly community space that will be available to rent and also house community cultural programming. Schigas says that although not yet finalized, the arts and culture programs will most likely include courses in traditional First Nations skills such as carving, tradition languages, painting, and basket weaving, as well as classes in pastry and chocolate making. In January an agreement was made between the Township of Langley and Seyem’ Qwantlen Development, which saw the facility built in the new Bedford Landing Amenity Space at 23255 Billy Brown Rd.

‘Getting in on the ground floor’

Langley Township fire chief Stephen Gamble (left to right) and Township Mayor Jack Froese help store owner Hatem Ibrahim open the new Shoppers Drug Mart location in Willoughby Town Centre.

ALYS S A O ’ DE L L Ti me s Re po r t e r

Township representatives and members of the Willoughby Town Centre business community gathered Saturday to celebrate the grand opening of a new Shoppers Drug Mart location. “This community, it’s a growing community,” said store manager Kurt Baumgartner of the Willoughby and neighbouring Walnut Grove. “We’re getting in on the ground floor, so to speak.” The Langley Township Fire Department was on hand to show off its newest firetruck for the November 30 event, which included a Rotary Club BBQ and a ribbon-cutting ceremony with township mayor Jack Froese and fire chief Stephen Gamble. Baumgartner said neighbouring communities are showing interest in shopping close to home, and expects a promising future of continued high-density condo growth and retail development in the area. “Everybody here, they’re all about community. They don’t want to drive to the city, they want to have convenience right near to them,” said Baumgartner. According to Baumgartner, who hired the majority of his staff locally, the store features a large beauty boutique that rivals locations in downtown Vancouver, and a pharmacy with a strong commitment to community care. Willoughby Town Centre is located at 20678 Willoughby Town Centre Drive and includes an Independent Grocer, RBC and Town Centre Liquor, among other retailers.

Acura latest dealership to build in Langley Another high-end automobile dealer has set its sights on Langley City. But Acura of Langley won’t be joining other recent additions to the City’s collection of luxury brands, which have been setting up shop at the corner of Glover Road and the Langley Bypass. During a recent presentation to City Council, John Scott and Mark Koropecky, of CEI Architecture described plans for a new 25,000 square foot glass and metal structure, which Acura plans to build at 20257 Langley Bypass. The lot is a long, narrow strip of land that fronts onto the Langley Bypass and backs onto 62 Avenue, which will allow traffic to enter and exit at both ends. Currently, the property is occupied by an RV rental business,

with the building situated on the eastern edge of the lot, butting up against a furniture store, separated by only a narrow gap. The proposal calls for the existing building to be demolished and the dealership — a one storey structure with a small, second storey mezzanine — to be constructed near the front of the property, with ample parking for both inventory and the public at the rear of the lot. The design calls for a “clean, corporate, sophisticated appearance” — “an improvement over what is there,” said Koropecky. No one from the community spoke about the proposed development at the public hearing. Later, council gave third reading to the land use discharge bylaw.

fourth annual Christmas Pyjama Drive, which began in 2010 and was the unique idea of then-six-year-old Reese Shelly, to make Christmas a little brighter for disadvantaged children. That first year saw 365 pairs

of pyjamas collected at the Richmond location of Brown Socialhouse. Reese’s father Todd Shelly co-owns the Richmond, Surrey and New Westminster locations. And now, for the first time, all of the Browns Socialhouses

in western Canada and Washington state are on board. The collected pyjamas will be given to local Christmas bureaus and charities. Granville Island Brewing has also jumped on board and will donate ten cents from every

sleeve of their Lions Winter Ale at Browns Socialhouses to the Christmas Pyjama Drive. Since it began, 4,035 pairs of pyjamas have been collected. For more information, visit www.facebook.com/The. Christmas.Pyjama.Drive.

The Langley Fundamental Titans celebrated the first B.C. provincial senior boys volleyball championship in school history after defeating the Langley Christian Lightning 3-0 on Saturday night at the UBC-Okanagan campus in Kelowna.

A repeat was not in the cards for the Langley Christian Lightning. The senior boys volleyball team lost in an all-Langley championship final to the Langley Fundamental Titans at the B.C. high school AA volleyball championships last

week at Kelowna’s UBCOkanagan campus. But the Lightning can take solace in the fact they beat the Okanagan Mission Huskies twice over the four-day tournament, which ran Nov. 27 to Nov. 30. Playing in the power pool — the top four teams in the 16-team tournament — the

Talent was never a question for the Langley Fundamental Titans. Head coach Matt Lewis knew his team had skill — two years, the core of his squad captured the B.C. junior boys provincial title. What concerned him was his senior boys’ volleyball team’s performance as last season’s provincial championships where the team played as a bunch of individuals and wound up finishing seventh. But it was lesson learned as the Titans won the first-ever B.C. senior boys AA provincial title in the program’s history on Saturday at the UBC-Okanagan campus in Kelowna. “They set each other up so they would be able to utilize their strengths,” Lewis said. “I am just so proud of them; they did great.” The Titans went 2-1 in pool play at the tournament on the first day, defeating the Langley Christian Lightning and the MEI Eagles, but falling to Okanagan-Mission. Seeded second in the pool for the playoff round, the Titans won in straight sets over George Elliott and College Heights to advance to the semifinals. The Titans then won 3-1 (25-22,2517,22-25,34-32) over MEI in the semifinals and defeated the Lightning 3-0 (25-21,25-18,25-23) to lay claim to the provincial crown. “This year, we came together as a team and played with each other instead of just a one-man show,” said

Lightning finished fourth at 1-2, losing to Langley Fundamental and the MEI Eagles, but beating the Huskies, who despite the loss, still ranked first out of the four after pool play. Langley Christian beat McRoberts 3-1 (25-14,2519,19-25,25-17) in the crossover playoff round and beat Highlands 3-2 (23-

25,25-13,19-25,26-24,15-9) in the quarter-finals. And in the semifinals, they beat Okanagan Mission for the second time, this time in straight sets 3-0 (25-17,29-27,25-20) to set up the all-Langley final with the Titans. But as has been the case all season, the Titans were too much winning 3-0 (25-

21,25-18,25-23). Langley Fundamental finished a perfect 5-0 on the season against the Lightning. Langley Christian’s Braden Heppell was also a first team all-star while Joel Hansen and Jeremy Hansma were second team all-stars. The Lightning’s Travis Muller was an honourable mention.

power hitter Carson Heppell, who earned the tournament’s most outstanding player award. “It means everything to win,” added Tristan Loewen, who picked up the most outstanding libero award. “It is the first one in school history, so it is pretty special.” Loewen said the players were disappointed in last year’s showing at provincials. “We were just disappointed in ourselves because we knew we were better than that,” he explained. “We just fell apart and didn’t get the outcome we wanted. We just had to push harder.” Five of the team’s seven starters are in Grade 12 so Loewen said the players wanted to leave it all on the floor in their final high school game. Lewis admitted he was nervous going into the semifinals. MEI has been the team’s chief rival all season long, winning their first three head-to-head matches. The Titans finally broke through two weeks ago in the Fraser Valley final when they beat the Eagles for the first time. But in that game, MEI was missing one of their best players to injury and he was back for provincials and Lewis was concerned this might affect his team mentally. “But they pulled through and played great,” the coach said. In addition to Heppell’s and Loewen’s awards, Denham O’Reilly and Michael Hsu earned first team allstars and Steven Hsu was a second team all-star.

They achieved their season’s objectives, but were sad to have just missed out on the podium. Those are the feelings of the Langley Christian Lightning senior girls volleyball team. Back-to-back losses to close the season resulted in the Lightning placing fourth at the Single A provincial championships, which were hosted by Duncan Christian School from Nov. 28 to Nov. 30. The Lightning lost 3-0 (25-17,25-16,25-21) to the Immaculata Mustangs in the semifinals and then 2-1 (19-25,25-21,15-5) to Cedars Christian in the bronze medal match to place fourth at the 16team event. “Our goals at the start of the season were to win the Fraser Valley championships and to place top five in the province,” said coach Mary Joan Visscher. Langley Christian did win the Valley banner. Overall at provincials, the team went 4-3 with two of the losses coming at the hands of Cedars Christian. “For them to get top four, the players are sad, but they know they fought as hard as they could,” Visscher said. “It was a successful season for them, especially considering they had two new coaches,” she added. The Lightning’s Sarah Kunst was a first team all-star while Marieke De Vynacka (second team) and Gabriella Schnitzer (honourable mention) were also recognized for their outstanding tournaments.

The Langley Fundamental Titans came up one match short of making it a sweep for their senior volleyball teams. The senior girls squad lost 3-1 in the championship final to Victoria’s Lambrick Park Lions at the B.C. provincial AA volleyball championships, which were held at Surrey’s Pacific Academy from Nov. 27 to Nov. 30. A victory would have matched the senior boys squad, which won the AA crown in Kelowna (see page 41). “We went in with a goal of winning provincials, but we knew we were up against a lot of great teams,” said coach Laura O’Reilly, adding that five or six of the 16 teams in attendance had a legitimate shot of playing for the gold medals. “I think the girls were happy to be in the gold medal match.

Rivermen return to top spot You shrank G ARY AH U J A Tim e s Spo r ts

Five days, four towns and three victories. That is the net result of the most grueling road trip of the season for the Langley Rivermen. “It was a good experience for us, hanging out on the bus over the four days,” said Mitch McLain, the captain of the junior A hockey club. “And we needed a bounce back weekend, we hadn’t been playing good hockey,” he added. The Rivermen improved to 19-10-1-2 and with 41 points, have a three-point lead over the Prince George Spruce Kings for top spot in the BCHL’s Mainland Division. “Four in five, coach Henderson has us in great shape and I think we were ready to go physically,” McLain said. And Prince George was the launch point of the road trip as the Rivermen opened the trek with a 2-1 victory last week (Nov. 27). Brock Crossthwaite earned first star honours with a 31save performance while Jakob Reichert and Will Cook scored the goals. In Penticton two nights later, James Robinson put the Rivermen ahead 3-2 early in the third but the Vees quickly took the lead with goals three minutes apart. But Langley battled back with goals from Matt Ustaski and Gage Torrel 83 seconds apart for the 5-4 win. And it seemed the trip caught up to the Rivermen the next night in West Kelowna as Lang-

Even more telling where the shots on goal as the visitors trailed 31-10. The lone goal in the 5-1 loss came from Reichert as he scored for the third straight game.

Crossthwaite was in goal for all three wins as he finished the week with a .925 save percentage. “We faced some adversity in

Penticton, but played hard and came out with two points,” McLain said. “And I think the road trip caught up to us a little bit and we didn’t play our best hockey (against West Kelowna) so we needed a bounce back here at home and that’s what we did.” The Rivermen, winners of five of their past six games, are on the road with games in Trail on Friday and Salmon Arm on Saturday. “There is room for improvement but I think we are on track and we are confident with what we are doing,” McLain said. “But I think we are back and can do what we need to do and rip off a few more wins.”

Spartans fall 7-1 to SFU

Rebels win in Vernon

Su bmitte d Pho to

Langley United Wrestling Club’s Josh Smallwood (top) captured a silver medal at a meet at Surrey’s Queen Elizabeth Secondary. The Langley 5 Rebels doubled up Vernon to capture their first tournament title of the hockey season. The Langley Minor Hockey Association peewee C hockey team was competing at a tournament in Vernon over the weekend (Nov. 29 to Dec. 1). The Rebels went a perfect 4-0 at the tournament. Langley won its pool thanks to a

sparkling 3-0 record. In the team’s first game, they hammered Mission 8-2. The remaining two pool games were both against local Vernon squads — the host association had four teams in the tournament — and the Rebels won by scores of 5-3 and 5-2, respectively, to earn a spot in the championship final.

A team of local wrestlers came away with seven medals — including a pair of gold — at their season-opening meet. The meet was held at Surrey’s Queen Elizabeth Secondary on Saturday (Nov. 30). The wrestlers compete as part of the Langley United Wrestling Club, which consists of students from Langley Secondary, Brookswood and D.W. Poppy. Leading the way were Jamil Ingimundson and Pritpaul Johal, who each won gold in their respective divisions. Tyler Tsoukalis, Josh Smallwood and Julian Waldron took silver in their weight classes. And Caitlin Bartakovic and Kia Lockyer also found the podium, earning the bronze medals in their divisions.

half of residents aged 55 (48 percent) would like to see photo radar coming back, support is decidedly lower among residents aged 18-to-34 (36 percent) and 35-to-54 (31 percent). I supported photo radar initially because when used in high-collision locations, elsewhere in the world, it has a remarkable record for reducing death and injuries. It never operated that way in BC and soon became public enemy number one where it was perceived as merely a cash cow for greedy provincial government. Residents were also asked about the quality of British Columbia’s roads and infrastructure. More than seven-in-

Question OF THE WEEK:

ten (74 percent) rate it as “good” (68 percent) or “very good” (6 percent), while only 22 per cent deem it “bad” (19 percent) or “very bad” (3 percent). Overall, only 16 percent of British Columbians believe that the province’s roads are “not too safe” or “not safe at all” for motorists, while four-in-five (82 percent) consider them “very safe” or “moderately safe.” This is the first of four surveys Insights West will conduct during the next year in partnership with Black Press. We hope these poll findings will find their way in the current speed limit and traffic safety review by the provincial government. This week in Driveway, our “Question of the Week” and “Drives-U-Crazy” spots focus on speed-related issues please participate online. keith.morgan@drivewaybc.ca About the survey: Results are based on an online study conducted from October 23 to October 27, 2013, among 838 British Columbians who are aged 18+ and are Your Insights panel members. YourInsights.ca is Insights West’s in-house access panel offering on-demand samples for both clients and research suppliers looking for Western Canadian populations. The data has been statistically weighted according to Canadian census figures for age and gender. While statistical margins of error are arguably not applicable to online panels/online studies of this nature, we have assumed that the same margins of error apply as if it were a true unweighted random probability sample with a margin of error of +/- 3.4 percentage points, nineteen times out of twenty. To view the detailed data tabulations go to www.insightswest.com

Should the maximum speed limit on the highways be raised to 110 km/h and 120 km/h on the Coquihalla network?

Safety Tip: During the months of November and December there is an 86 per cent increase in crashes where a pedestrian is injured compared to July and August.

The front of the dash, in my test unit, was covered in an aluminum panel and surrounded by soft touch materials. The radio and heat controls are similar to other Mercedes products so even though this CLA isn’t uber-expensive, it looks like a proper Mercedes Benz.

The premium package is a must because it includes a huge panoramic sunroof, backup camera, automatic climate control and heated front seats; all of this for $2,800. This is a small car; the roof feels very low and back seat passenger’s needs to be children or shorter adults. Rear seat outward visibility is limited and legroom is also at a premium.

bigger back seat and hatchback storage. Drive The launch event for this new CLA was held in the Washington DC area, leaving historic Georgetown and heading towards Maryland’s ports and navel academy. This provided some excellent stop-and-go traffic opportunities in Washington’s morning rush hour and then getting to stretch the new CLA’s legs on fabulous Interstate highways. The power plant is a direct injection turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with a healthy 208hp. The power goes through a 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission to the front wheels. The more expensive and powerful 355hp CLA 45 AMG has an all wheel drive (AWD) system as standard equipment but the base CLA 250 will get this important option sometime in 2014. Power is fantastic, especially if the transmission is placed in the sportier mode. This car cruises effortlessly at highway speeds and passes with ease. Even though it uses the same engine as the B-Class, this car felt more planted and sophisticated, maybe due to the lower centre of gravity and a trunk, which will muffle road noise compared to the hatchback. All CLA models come with a Collision Prevention Assist feature that alerts the driver to the possibility of an impending collision. Verdict We are heading into a wonderful period of lower priced cars, or vehicles fitted with more standard features. This new CLA 250 is a perfect example of this. Other new entries include the latest A3 that arrives in March and starts at $31,100 and then the new BMW 1 Series will arrive in about a year. For the price of a well-equipped non-premi-

um brand Canadians can now get a premium German sedan for about the same price. If I were to purchase this CLA 250, I would include the premium package to get the sunroof, backup camera and heated seats. The Sport package is also tempting for the bigger wheels. This would bring the price up to $38,300. Not cheap, but you do a get a lot of car and features for this price. I hear that BC’s Mercedes Benz dealers have had huge interest in this new CLA with back orders now in place as they try to get as many cars as they can. A nice problem for Mercedes to have and they deserve it as this is a great car for the money. zack.spencer@drivewaybc.ca The Lowdown Power: 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder with 208hp Fill-up: 7.8L/5.1L/100km (city/highway) Sticker price: $33.900

Drives-U-Crazy Amateur speed cops

Self-appointed speed cops are a danger to themselves and everybody else on the road. We’ve all seen them in action: they stick themselves in the centre lane at the speed limit and will not move over to let anybody pass. It promotes impatience and frustration which leads to smashes. Leave speed enforcement to the cops. What drives-u-crazy. keith.morgan@drivewaybc.ca

And who wouldn’t fall in love with the British accent? Addressing question number two: What car would I buy if I had an unlimited budget? Well, at this point in my life, that’s not the case. I have yet to win the lottery. But I can refine the question to, if I had to buy a vehicle for my family, what would it be? Currently, we’re the owners of a 2001 VW Cabrio. We imported it from Southern California and have put quite a few kilometres on it. But, we needed something that was bigger, had more trunk space, was preferably a diesel and could make it through the snow. So, the hunt began. It actually began in December of 2012. The better half and I went looking for an SUV. It didn’t matter if it had five or seven seats. We preferred a diesel but were not exclud2010 DODGE ing gasoline options. The first place we went to MEANS JOURNEY RT was the Mercedes-Benz dealership. The ML350 #26372 Bluetec was in a new generation and something LOCAL VEHICLE, NO ACCIDENTS, AWD, LEATHER, we were interested in. However, with the opSUNROOF, FULLY LOADED! tions we wanted and a three month wait time, the price was out of our range and the wait was too long. Then we looked into the Mazda CX-9. Granted, it’s not a diesel but a classy car and one that’s nice to drive. Again, the Ford Explorer Sport 2011 FORD was not diesel, but a strong contender. Though, F-350 LARIAT the fuel economy wasn’t as stellar as we had #29285 hoped.

After taking that for a spin, that was top three on the list. We also fancied the Volvo XC90 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee diesel. 2013 GMC With all these great options, it was hard to narSIERRA 2500HD row it down. But there was one that we had still not looked at. That was the 2014 VW Touareg TDI. DENALI #28570 It wasn’t hard to fall in love with it.

It only seemed fitting to welcome this type of beautiful machine into our home. Upon recommendation from a colleague, we went to Gold Key VW in Langley where our sales rep, John Nielsen, was fabulous. Upon entry into the dealership, we knew exactly what we wanted.

the re-introduction of the renowned Cummins Diesel engine option. The addition of particulate scrubbing emission equipment had made the big in-line turbo diesel legal once again in both the US and Canada. This engine offers phenomenal pulling power in addition to fuel-economy and a longer driving range benefits. The 2010 RAM HD also joined GM and Ford in offering an integrated trailer hitch and a trailer brake controller. A nice added feature is that the brake action appears on the instrument panel as a bar graph. This makes it easier for a driver to monitor and adjust controller settings. The 2010’s towing and hauling capability numbers are also up and rated to pull up to 7,983 kg (17,600 lb) and carry 2,336 kg (5,150 lb) of payload, depending on how it’s equipped. The front axle load carrying ability of 4WD models had also been increased to 2,495 kg (5,500 lb), which meant you could attach an even bigger snowplow. The standard engine is a 5.7-litre Hemi V8 that can supply 383 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. The optional 6.7-litre Cummins inline six-cylinder Turbo Diesel can supply 350 horsepower and a whopping 650 lb-ft of torque. It’s mated with either a six-speed manual (with an ultra-low first gear) or six-speed automatic with a feature that allows the

driver to manually limit its highest gear and a tow/ haul mode. The Cummins is a truck diesel that makes customary diesel engine noses, so it’s far from quiet, especially when you start it up cold. The clatter isn’t so bad when you’re inside the cab, with the windows up, but your neighbours may not appreciate the early morning din. And when you get up to cruising speed on the highway, it’s barely noticeable. Other new features available on RAM HD include an electric shift-on-the-fly 4×4 transfer case, a back-up camera that makes trailer hook-ups easier and a monitor that provides a variety of vehicle information. The cab rides on a new C-pillar positioned hydraulic body mounts and there were suspension upgrades plus larger front axle U-joints. Changes for 2011 were minimal, but did include a tire pressure monitoring system and the LaRAMie trim got standard trailer brake control. In 2012, the HD got a six-speed automatic transmission and a RAMBox storage system was expanded to the 6-foot-4 bed. The base engine’s towing capability was also increased by 2,000 lbs, thanks to a new 4.10 ratio rear end. Big, brash and brawny, the revamped heavy-duty (Dodge) RAM 2500/3500 was reunited with a cleaner, yet more powerful, Cummins Diesel … a match made in truck heaven. bob.mchugh@drivewaybc.ca 2010 DODGE RAM BOB MCHUGH

The 2014 Range Rover sport After seeing many old Range Rovers around navigating the back roads and how bulky and cumbersome they look as they spin out rocks attempting a hill climb or how the passengers seem to be bouncing around uncontrollably Ian Harwood on what appears to be a very basic interior, I found myself thinking there must be some kind of special group of people that are attracted to this vehicle. Fast forward to today’s version of the Range Rover and you will find an outstanding front end that is easily recognized with the signature grille and projector style headlights. The trend setting side vents on the front fenders that are found on other vehicles and copied by the aftermarket. The large rear glass panels that extend up into the roof line making the overall appearance very clean looking and unique. The engine is a 510 horsepower, supercharged 5.0 litre V8 that puts out 461 lb-ft of torque @2500 RPM with a 6 speed automatic transmission. This transmission features Command Shift that actively responds to your driving habits and road conditions by reconfiguring the shift patterns for optimum drivability in all situations and is mated with a 2 speed electronically controlled transfer case. Four wheel electronic traction control, hill descent control, and four corner air suspension with terrain response not only makes this vehicle maneuver well on the road but can take you on some of the roughest back roads British Columbia has to offer. The terrain response system gives the Range Rover outstanding off-road capabilities, it adapts the response of the vehicles engine, transmission, centre coupling and chassis system to the terrain you’re driving on. It also maintains driver comfort as well as maximizing traction. Terrain response works continuously, but the driver can change the setting depending on the

terrain conditions, for example: mud and ruts, snow, or sand. Hill descent control automatically controls and restricts the speed downhill, using anti-lock brake system, and improves driver control on slippery descents. My first impression after climbing into the cab was of disbelief. I did not expect that level of comfort. The sight lines are amazing and the blind spot was almost non-existent. The rear seats had plenty of room for adults and the cargo area was adequate. The heated leather wrapped steering wheel featured all the controls one needed to 2014 Range Rover sport operate the equipment without distraction. The front and rear seats are heated. Power tilt/slide front sunroof and a large glass roof over the rear seats allow plenty of natural light in. It is top shelf quality thru and thru. Range Rover has a long history of making safe vehicles, and the Sport model is no exception. Driver and passenger front airbags are designed to provide head and chest protection, and the front seat side airbags protect against side impacts. There is also a full length curtain airbag to help reduce potential of head injury and roll over ejection for front and rear passengers. Inflatable knee bolster helps protect the driver against leg injury from the steering column. Fuel economy is 16.2/10.4 L/100km (City/highway) Warranty 4 year/ 80,000 km Price as tested $125,575 Ian.harwood@drivewaybc.ca

IAN HARWOOD

The most macho classic cars ever

We have no desire to wade into the minefield that is the eternal “chick car vs. dude car” argument. But it’s self-evident that the cars on this list most definitely have a “Y” chromosome. In fact, they positively ooze testosterone: 1. 1966-67 Shelby Cobra 427: Many people aren’t aware of the fact that the fire-breathing Cobra actually started out as a rather delicate British sports car, the AC Ace. Carroll Shelby saw the po- Rob Sass tential, installed a 260-cubic-inch Ford V-8, and it was good. But a 427-cubic-inch NASCAR engine was even better along with side-pipes and fat fenders. Performance was blistering and so was the noise. 2. 1970-71 Plymouth Hemi ‘Cuda: The new Mopar E-body forever broke the association with the old economy Valiant, and the Barracuda and its stablemate, the Dodge Challenger, were low, wide and particularly menacing. The 426 Hemi V-8 made it one of the baddest of all time. 3. 1968 Corvette L88: This is the Corvette that ordinary civilians weren’t supposed to be able to buy. It was designed for the track at a time when GM was observing an official racing ban. L88s had no creature comforts (not even a heater) and overheated in the briefest of traffic jams. To further discourage non-racers, GM

underrated the horsepower of the 427-cubic-inch engine, reporting it at around 400 hp. In reality, it was well over 500 hp. 4. 1969-73 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 “Daytona”: The Ferrari Daytona was one of the last V-12 front-engine Ferrari GTs that Enzo Ferrari personally had a hand in. For almost every year it was in production, it was the fastest road car available in the U.S. with a top speed of more than 172 mph. Racer Dan Gurney and journalist Brock Yates won the infamous cross-country Cannonball Run in a Daytona going coast-to-coast in just under 36 hours. All of the controls from the ultra-heavy clutch to the unassisted steering are like a workout machine set on maximum resistance. 5. 1976-89 Porsche 930: The 930 was like a 911 on steroids. Literally. Choose your favorite juiced ballplayer from the ‘roids era and compare his forearms to the 930’s aggressively flared fenders and you’ll get it. Performance was otherworldly for the time with 0-60 times of under four seconds and sub-14-second quarter-mile times, bettering all but the most muscular of Detroit muscle cars (albeit at a very steep price). The 930 could also bite back hard. Its rear-engine and “on or off” turbocharger made it easy to spin.
