Province approves TWU law school DECISION BY ADVANCED EDUCATION MINISTER FOLLOWS ENDORSEMENT BY FEDERATION OF LAW SOCIETIES OF CANADA DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter

Trinity Western University in Langley has won approval to build the first faithbased law school in the country, winning required endorsements from both the provincial government and the national body that represents Canadian lawyers. On Wednesday, Dec. 18, Advanced Education Minister Amrik Virk announced approval of the proposed law program. At an afternoon press briefing, Virk said his decision was based on a review by the Degree Quality Assessment Board, the provincial ministry of education agency that conducts quality assessments of proposed new degree programs at private and public post-secondary institutions, as well as the approval of the new law school by the Federation of Law Societies of Canada, the national co-ordinating body for 14 provincial and territorial law societies that governs over 100,000 lawyers and 4,000 Quebec notaries. Virk said he was aware of the opposition to the law school by some groups and individuals who have complained the TWU school cannot teach students to protect human rights when it also maintains what some have called an anti-gay policy. That issue was beyond the scope of the review, Virk said. “They [the complaints] don’t relate to the academic quality of the program,” Virk said. “My decision is based solely on the degree quality review.” That review was focused on whether the proposed course would have sufficient instructors and adequate “academic rigor,” Virk said.

Su bmitte d image

Rendering of the new Trinity Western University School of Law, which was approved by the provincial government on Dec. 18, two days after being endorsed by the Federation of Law Societies of Canada. The Degree Quality Assessment Board review found that the TWU course met the quality standards for “private and outof-province public institutions,” Virk said, calling Trinity Western University “a faithbased, private university that does not receive operating or capital funding from government.” Based on the board finding, and the review by the Federation of Law Societies that found that TWU law graduates could meet the national standards to practice law, approval was granted, Virk said. The provincial accreditation came two days after TWU announced (on Monday, Dec. 16) that the school had the endorsement of the Federation of Law Societies of Canada. No more regulatory hurdles remain for the law school, which is expected to open in September, 2016. Earlier this year more than 1,000 students at eight Canadian law schools signed letters opposing the proposed TWU law school, arguing the the university’s student handbook discriminates against gays, bisexuals and transgendered people.

The handbook contains a clause that required all TWU students to abstain from “sexual intimacy that violates the sacredness of marriage between a man and a woman.” A student who breaks the pledge could be expelled. B OB At the WednesKUHN day press briefing, Virk noted there have been threats of legal action if the law school was approved, but would not speculate on the government’s position in that event. TWU President Bob Kuhn also referred to the controversy in a written statement. “We recognize that there has been considerable debate with respect to the fact that TWU is a faith-based university,”

Kuhn said. “Now that the federation has approved the program, we can move on from that debate and build an excellent law school to serve the Canadian public.”  TWU issued a written statement earlier in the year that said gay and lesbian students are welcome to attend the university. “We do not ask about a prospective student’s sexual orientation, and many gay and lesbian students have graduated from our university,” the statement read. “Prospective students who do not agree with our religious views are welcome to apply to another university.” The designs for the new School of Law building include a 14,250 square-foot law library and 200-seat lecture theatre. Current plans call for 60 first-year law students to begin studies in 2016. The TWU School of Law will offer what are described as unique courses in charities/not-for-profit law and entrepreneurial law. In the United States, roughly a quarter of the country’s 200 law faculties are religious-affiliated law schools.

Tim Hortons coming to the Langley Mall RESTAURANT APPROVED BY COUNCIL, RESIDENTS VOICE CONCERNS OVER NOISE, LIGHT, LITTER A LY S S A O ’ D E L L Tim e s Re po r t e r

A new Tim Hortons is in the works for downtown Langley City, despite concerns from both council and local residents about the impact the development may have on the area’s traffic and overall safety. On the recommendations of the city’s Advisory Planning Commission, Langley City Council has approved the development permit for a new Tim Hortons at 20300 Douglas Cres. — the thumbshaped vacant space on the west side of the Langley Mall complex. Turner Architecture’s Bob Turner has been working on the proj-

ect and told council at their Dec. 16 meeting the aim is to “create a nice, tight visual space along Douglas Crescent that compliments what we have there now.” The design will feature new street lights, street trees and a large outdoor eating area. Council voted to approve the development with the exception of Councillor Rosemary Wallace, who objected, based on the design’s inclusion of a drive-thru, saying that the city should be moving toward becoming more walkable instead. Council members asked several questions surrounding traffic access plans for the site, concerned

that people driving south on 203 Street may pass the restaurant — where it is illegal to turn left – and proceed to make an illegal U-turn farther down the road in order to double back. Jan Voss, a traffic engineer who completed an independent traffic assessment for the project, said options include increasing signage as well as the longer term goal of making the Douglas Crescent mall entrance a fully signaled intersection. “There will be a fair amount of foot traffic going to and from the site,” said Voss, adding he anticipates less drive-thru traffic at this Tim Hortons location compared

to those on the Fraser Highway and the Langley Bypass. “It’s a different group of customers,” he said. Members of the the City Grande strata council took the opportunity for public input to voice concerns over the impact another 24-hour business would have on the area. City Grande consists of 74 condo units from 20239 to 20259 Michaud Cres. Some of the units border 203 Street, sitting directly across from the future development. Residents are concerned about noise and light pollution, increased litter and attracting

nighttime activities such as prostitution or the congregation of homeless persons. But the general consensus among council and city staff is that more investment in downtown Langley will lead to increased foot traffic and subsequently the “natural surveillance” of the area by community members. “I think the presence (of Tim Hortons) on the street is an improvement over the lack of anything there right now,” said Councillor Dave Hall. According to the project timeline, the new location will open in September, 2014.

Pipeline: rewards minimal, risk too great, council hears TRANSMOUNTAIN PIPELIN E EXPANSION CRITI C ISSUES WARNING TO TOW NSH IP DAN FER GUSON Tim es Reporter

Township council has been told the benefits of a second oil pipeline through Langley have been overstated and they are outweighed by the potential losses that would result from an oil spill. The opinion was delivered at the Monday Dec. 16 meeting of council by Liz McDowell, executive director of Conversations for Responsible Economic Development (CRED), a self-described group of “professionals and business leaders from the tourism, real estate, tech, health, creative and other service-based sectors” who say they want to protect the regional economy from threats to long-term development. McDowell said the pipeline will create about 50 B.C. jobs, most of them low-skilled. CRED estimates the project will contribute an average of $26.5 million in taxes each year to  provincial and local governments, which isn’t much, McDowell said. “It’s enough to support one school the size of Langley Fine

Arts,” said McDowell, a graduate of the Fort Langley high school, who grew up in Walnut Grove. While the odds of a LIZ pipeline spill M CD OWE LL are low, the potential consequences would be “catastrophic,” McDowell said. Based on the fallout from oil spills in the U.S. the cost to B.C. would be in the hundreds of millions of dollars, CRED projects. Property values would drop, employment would rise and the province’s image as a pristine, green tourist destination would suffer. “It’s trading away the ‘Beautiful B.C.’ brand,” McDowell said. Alberta and overseas companies will reap most of the profits, she said. McDowell was invited to speak to council after she ap-

peared at a November forum organized by local resident Byron Smith, who doesn’t want the pipeline running through his family’s 31-acre farm near Fort Langley. Council is considering whether it should seek intervenor status at National Energy Board hearings on Kinder Morgan’s twinning of the TransMountain pipeline. Mayor Jack Froese said representatives of Kinder Morgan have been invited to make a presentation to council about the pipeline and so has the National Energy Board (NEB), the agency that will decide if the project proceeds. On Monday, Kinder Morgan formally filed an application with the NEB. The company says the next step will be for the NEB “to establish a hearing schedule that corresponds to the federal government’s legislated 15-month review and decision timeframe.” The company hopes to have the new line open by 2017. The proposed $5.4 billion project will increase the current 300,000-barrel-per-day capacity to 890,000. It is also expected to quintuple tanker traffic at the TransMountain Burnaby facility to nearly 300 ships a year.

Question langeytimes.com

If you’ve already glanced over at today’s letters page, you’ve no doubt noticed a theme. It’s all about being grateful. Our readers have taken the opportunity this Christmas Eve to say thank you to others for helping to make their holiday season — or their lives in general — a little brighter. Whether it’s the donations that poured in to a Langley grandmother and granddaughter after the unfortunate loss of a bag of Christmas gifts or the aid rendered by ‘three angels’ to a stranded motorist, Langleyites stepped up, time and again,  to help their fellow man, without asking for anything in return. We’d like to add our voice to the chorus of gratitude. In a community as generous as Langley, it’s difficult to know where to begin. Everywhere we’ve turned over the past month, we’ve found people donating their time and considerable efforts to a range of worthy causes. From the enormous army of volunteers it takes to keep the Christmas Bureau running on all cylinders, to the individuals who have been outside on some pretty cold days and evenings, ringing a bell for the Salvation Army. From the local accountant who dresses up in Victorian-era  garb and collects from area businesses on behalf of the less fortunate, to a group of young men who produced a Christmas album and then donated all the proceeds from its sales to the food bank. And thank you to everyone who contributed to their efforts — whether through the donation of cash or gifts. Without you, none of it could happen. Then there are the owners and staff at the Langley City Dairy Queen who once again put on a community holiday dinner, at no charge. And we can’t forget the folks at St. Joseph’s Catholic church who, once again tomorrow, will be foregoing Christmas Day celebrations with their own families to serve a hearty turkey dinner with all the trimmings to anyone who would otherwise spend the holiday alone or with an empty stomach. We say ‘we can’t forget’ but we no doubt have. The sheer number of people out doing for others in this community is mind boggling. And as we settle in now to spend time with our own families we’ll think about the folks who don’t get a day of rest, because we need them to be looking out for us 365 days of the year. For those of you who have spent time volunteering with the host of local charities, our wish for you is that you have a joyous holiday, surrounded by loved ones and warmed by the knowledge that, thanks to your efforts, someone out there is having a very Merry Christmas, indeed.

Missing the message they

It’s that time of year again, when friends, families and co-workers gather to celebrate Christmas. For most of us there is good reason to celebrate good will and to enjoy each other’s company, the true meaning of the season. But despite the best efforts of the province and RCMP detachments around B.C., there are still far too many who drink alcohol and then get behind the wheel to drive themselves home. Countless headlines have documented the gut-wrenching effects of drunk driving, not only on the lives of the drunken driver, but on the lives of the victim’s families who will forever associate Christmas with the loss of a loved one because someone thought it was OK to drink and drive.Earlier this month, in a highly publicized Counter Attack blitz, RCMP from 97 B.C. detachments handed out 220 road-side prohibitions. That’s 220 too many. We believe driving safely is an individual responsibility, but at the same time, drinking typically occurs at social events, where others are fully aware that someone is drinking and shouldn’t be getting behind the wheel of a vehicle. It is our responsibility to make sure our friends, families and co-workers stay safe. That way, we’ll have a better chance of getting home safely as well. – Penticton Western News

Plenty to be grateful for this Christmas Poppy campaign raised $85,000 Editor: It is with much gratitude that we, the management committee of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 21, thank the Langley community, businesses of Langley and all the volunteers who helped make our 2013 poppy campaign a huge success. The total raised was in excess of $85,000. Thank you to the downtown merchants who made it possible to display the banners of our veterans during this special time. The poppy campaign is our yearly fundraiser to help our veterans and families in need of support. The funds also allow us to donate to the Sea, Army and Air Cadets who help and support us during our campaign and at our Remembrance Day service. Langley schools are also an important factor in our campaign by participating in the Legion literacy program by submitting posters, essays and poems pertaining to Remembrance Day and what it means to them. They receive certificates, pins and monetary gifts from the funds for the best in each category. Children and grandchildren attending college or university can apply

for bursaries from the poppy funds. We have veterans who live in facilities which we donate to for much-needed equipment, such as ceiling lifts, electric beds and oxygen concentrators. The George Derby veterans facility and Langley Lodge both will receive a donation. To the business people of Langley who did not have the opportunity to participate this year, we hope for your participation next year in support of our veterans. Lest we forget. Donna Watson poppy chairperson C.L Branch 21

Community response overwhelms Editor: My granddaughter and I would like to express our deepest appreciation for the wonderful, most generous, kind people who stepped forward to help us out during a very disheartening time. My granddaughter left a bag of gifts from the Body Shop on the bus bench, we searched for them with no luck. I contacted the Langley Times with the hope that if they printed a letter from me asking for the return of the bag, that someone might also be looking for us to return the gifts.

The Langley Times did indeed print my letter, for which we are very grateful as we learned what a great community we live in. The Body Shop in Ontario heard of our plight, sent me an email and are sending out replacement gifts this week in time for Christmas, so we want to thank them for their caring and generosity. I really want to thank the people who opened their hearts to us, it means more than you will ever know. Thank you doesn’t seem to be enough, so we promise you we will “pay it forward” a lot more in 2014. Merry Christmas. S. & J. Papineau Langley

Thanks to those on duty over Xmas Editor: I am writing to you because I am a parent of a first responder who will be working this Christmas. Thinking on this it led me to reflect on first responders in general. I realized that at more than 60 years old,  I have had many wonderful Christmas times. I had never paused to reflect that those times were so wonderful because behindthe-scenes, these men and women were

out there, looking after situations and ensuring our comfort and safety. I know first responders are not the only people away from their families at Christmas and I just wanted us to pause and thank all these people for their care. Merry Christmas and thank you. Pat MacDonald Langley

Trio of angels took over Editor: I would like to thank the three wonderful men who came to my rescue when, through a set of circumstances, I found myself on the outside of my car, with the motor running and my purse, keys and phone etc. on the inside and the doors locked.  These three  angels — and they know who they are — took over and arranged for BCAA assistance to come and unlock my car and get me on my way.  Also, a huge thanks to the tow truck driver who did the deed of opening the door.  It just shows that human kindness is alive and well and I shall look forward to paying the favor forward whenever I can.  L.

A 365-day Christmas wish list My excitement rocketed as he said Santa had left the North Pole heading for our house.   His promise and the sparkling stars lit my mind with the magic of flying reindeer pulling Santa in his red shiny sleigh, although great, it isn’t my fondest memory. The absolute dearest is when my nomad son came to visit on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day after being absent for more than 15 years due to his lifestyle.   It had been five years since we’d set eyes on each other even though we spoke frequently.  Although a tad nervous, I was overjoyed seeing, hugging him and telling him how much he was loved.   Never will I forget his endorsement of my parenting which is far more valuable and heart-

warming than a wagon full of gifts.   And the, “I’m sorry Mom.  I love you,” still melts my heart. Thank God, neither of us bought the lie that there is always tomorrow to say the I love you’s, straighten out the past and be at peace with one another.   He was brutally murdered several months later. No more memories can be made. His words of love and presence echo in my head. Simple pleasures and the personal touch can never be replaced with gobs of presents, big bank accounts or vacations.   An email or text can’t convey passion and humility.   Hot cars, glittery jewels and keeping up with society and the latest tech can’t be substituted for smiling eyes and laughter.   Stuff — junk — can and will

inflate egos, then, smack your financial bottom line with repayment worries.   When the chips are down, a cell will not hold your hand as you die, or laugh at the funny way your mind works.   Nor will it hold you while you’re in the depth of despair or in the delights of love.   You may under or overwork at your loved or hated job but it will never love or hate you back.   This Christmas, and every day for the rest of your lives, break through the silence to admit when, not if, you are wrong.   When you are afraid to tell someone that you love or think highly of them, shove fear aside instead of anticipating a negative response. Touch the cheek of your dear children, aging parents and friends reminding them of your

love and caring. Take your girl flowers for no particular occasion other than to show your appreciation.   Thank your partner for who they are.   When someone does well, acknowledge them.      Put down your cell, remote, techie stuff and all that keeps you from the true spirit of life and Christmas.   Nothing can replace the human heart, touch or spoken word as we never know when the natural order of life short circuits and leaves us only memories.   My 365-day Christmas wish for all, is to make some forever memories every day of your life not just in the holiday season.   Remember — always give more than you get, to receive more than you give.        Laura MacDonald Surrey

Pub auction raises $42,000 for two children’s charities GARY AHUJA Tim es Reporter

The generosity of Langley community members has resulted in close to $42,000 being raised for a pair of local charities. Nearly a quarter of that came from an anonymous donation of $10,000. The money will be split between the Langley Big Brothers Big Sisters of Langley (BBBS) and the Langley Child Development Centre. The funds were raised through a live auction and dinner at the Murrayville Town Pub on Nov. 27. “It was phenomenal,” said Mary Reeves, executive director of Langley BBBS. “We just had a lot of good stuff that people wanted.” “The whole atmosphere in the room was probably one of the best I have experienced there,” she added. “The whole ambience and atmosphere was upbeat and lively and people were glad to be there.” Reeves said people really wanted to come out and support John Pybus, one of the pub’s owners. Pybus has been battling health problems this year. “They love him and he has got great respect in the com-

Reeves said that the money will greatly benefit both organizations as they continue to help Langley’s children and youth. This was Reeve’s seventh year of being involved with the auction and the amount matched the previous high, which was raised in 2010. That year saw a lot of Olym-

pics-related prizes available, which really piqued people’s interest and generated higher bids. Some of the top prizes at this year’s event included a houseboat cruise on the Shuswap and a trip to Vegas. Toronto Blue Jays third-baseman Brett Lawrie, who grew up in Langley, also attended the event and signed a jersey for one of the prizes as well.

New Yorkson area school named Boxing Week Inventory Sale for neighbourhood, waterway Book your Wellness The Langley School District’s newest school is on track to open in September, 2014 under the name Yorkson Creek Middle School. The school, currently under construction in Langley’s South Yorkson area at 20629 84 Ave., is named for the adjacent park and neighbourhood, as well as being a nod to the geography of Yorkson Creek — part of the local watershed that drains the surrounding land directly into

the Fraser River via its 81 tributaries, which serve as ideal fish habitats and active spawning grounds for fish like coho and chum salmon. The new name was announced by the Langley Board of Education at their Dec. 17 meeting. Last spring, the school district announced the appointment of Tim Everson as principal of the new middle school.

He believed in Santa, and so do I From Page 6

I made my way around the ward, entering each of the rooms and holding the hand of each of the patients. I didn’t know what to say, but what suddenly burst out of my mouth was “I know that you’ve always believed in me and I just wanted to drop by to say hello.”

One patient — an older man wearing a Christmas hat — said he had awoken that morning excited with the hope that maybe a friend or family member might drop by for a visit.  But none had… until Santa Claus.   He held my hand for the longest time and just stared at me. He then muttered, “Thank you,

Santa. Merry Christmas.” I turned to leave his room – I didn’t want him to see me cry.   After all, he believed in Santa Claus.  And now, so do I. Daniel St. Andrews lives in Langley. He is a volunteer in the chemo room at Fraser Valley Centre, an actor and a blogger — www.danielstandrews.net

PriceSmart invites shoppers to Pay it Forward with points EVERY 1,000 POINTS REDEEMED BECOMES $2 WORTH OF FRESH FRUITS AND VEGETABLES FOR RESIDENTS IN NEED It’s a time of year when many people are thinking about giving and helping those in the community who cannot afford many of the basics, including access to fruit and vegetables. One way to help those in need purchase healthy foods is through the Langley Healthier Community Partnership Task Group, which has partnered with Langley’s PriceSmart Foods grocery store, and is asking customers to donate their More Rewards points to the Pay It Forward with

Points campaign. For every 1,000 points redeemed as a donation, PriceSmart Foods will donate $2. In the two months since the soft launch of this campaign, Langley residents have donated 150,000 plus points already, said Janet Burgen, Stepping Stone executive director who helped create the task group. “A healthy community is one that does more than simply tend to residents’ med-

ventative approach that takes many factors into account,” said Burgen. “The Healthier Community Partnership recognizes this . . . as housing, child care, crime, addiction, and mental health.” The healthier partnership began in 2009 with the Township, City and Fraser Health coming together to look at better ways to provide services to the community, she said. The funds raised will be used to provide gift cards, allowing those in need in the Langley area to purchase fruit and vegetables. Points may be collected at any PriceSmart Foods or Save-On-Foods stores but must be donated at the PriceSmart Foods located at 20091 Fraser Highway.

North Langley paramedic unit chief John Juszko and station paramedic Renée Gilroy load Christmas goodies into a transport ambulance to deliver to a local family in need. According to Gilroy, paramedics in New Westminster, Surrey, North Delta and the TriCities have chosen to each sponsor a family, collecting donations from their members of everything from toys, non-perishables and Christmas essentials – right down to the turkey and stuffing.

Firefighters chipping trees for charity at Otter Co-op Jan. 4 Christmas trees are an important part of the holiday season, and the giving can continue into the New Year.

Health Matters

Redheads comprise only one to two per cent of the population and they seem to have more in common than their hair colour! Many are already aware that they sunburn more easily, thus are more prone to skin cancer. They have a higher risk of Parkinson’s disease and endometriosis too. Research is also showing they tend to be more sensitive to pain, hot and cold – but less sensitive to anaesthetics. Very interesting. More and more research is demonstrating the importance of adequate sleep for overall health, however a blanket statement, such as "seven hours," is not proving reliable. Various factors can influence need, including genetics, age and current health status. A 20-year-old, whose brain is still developing, may need eight hours, but a 60-year-old may only need six hours. Ensure you get enough that you feel dynamic through the day, not dragging. Insufficient sleep contributes to poor health – a weakened immune system, weight gain, diabetes, heart disease and workplace/traffic accidents. Sleep medications rarely produce quality sleep and most people

respond to developing a good sleep routine. Try to go to bed and get up at about the same time each day – including days off and holidays. Reduce caffeine and alcohol and avoid BOB SANGHA brain stimulants such as TV Pharmacist, BSc & computer for at least 30 minutes before bed. Positive lifestyle choices – a healthy plant-based diet, regular exercise, sufficient sleep/stress management and a good social support system – may actually reverse the aging process! A study out of California has shown that these factors can increase telomeres, the DNA/protein complexes on the ends of chromosomes. When telomeres are damaged or shortened, cells die sooner, so protecting and preserving them may increase lifespan. There is plenty you can do, without drugs or other medical interventions, to improve and enhance your quality of life. If you are ready to make some healthy New Year’s Resolutions, talk to our pharmacists about the best choices for you.

LANGLEY’S ELLIE KING DI RECTS A GA G-FILLED CINDERELLA STORY, WITH PROMISES OF ROB FORD JOKES AND MORE ALE X B RO WN E Bl ack Pre s s

Cinderella, opening at Surrey Arts Centre on Friday, is guaranteed to be a welcome interlude in the hectic Christmas schedule — a family-oriented oasis of all the colourful costumes and sets, cheery players, antique schtick and groaner gags for which pantomime is known. But it’s also a milestone for its creator, Langley’s Ellie King, managing artistic director of the Royal Canadian Theatre Company. It’s been 25 years since King — a veteran of British panto productions from childhood — staged her first Canadian version, Sinbad the Sailor, at Vancouver’s Metro Theatre in 1988. Since then, the Christmas pantomime tradition — once almost exclusively based in White Rock — has caught on with theatre companies throughout the Lower Mainland, and King’s own original scripts have been licensed and performed all over B.C. A passionate aficionado and champion of a theatrical entertainment that traces its direct roots back more than 400 years (but draws on traditions dating back to Greco-Roman times) King knows not only what goes into the panto recipe but why and when it was added to the mix. She doesn’t expect audiences, however, to get all the history behind the Irish stew of fairytale, song and dance and masques and harlequinades of centuries gone by. All that’s really required is that they sit back, relax and be entertained by a keen troupe of entertainers from virtually all the Lower Mainland municipalities. This year’s show — which runs

Su bmitte d Pho to

Cinderella (Melissa Paras) with stepsisters Atrocia (Alan Cedargreen), Deplorabelle (Mark Manning), stepmother Grimelda Stoneyborke (Kerri Norris) bring this classic family-oriented pantomime to the Surrey Arts Centre (Dec. 20-29) and to Maple Ridge’s ACT Theatre from Jan. 2-5. in Surrey until Dec. 29, then goes on to usher in the new year at the ACT Theatre, Maple Ridge (Jan. 2-5) — is a panto perennial. “Cinderella is the most popular pantomime of all the pantomimes, above all others – there are literally hundreds of them,” King said, adding this marks the third production of her version (following shows in 1998 and

2007). “I don’t know quite why — maybe it’s the rags-to-riches element – making good and beating the odds. “It’s also the only panto that has two ‘dames’ in it — and, occasionally, three,” she said, referring to the hard-done-by Cinders’ eternal nemeses, her wicked stepmother and two

less-than-appealing stepsisters — usually played, in panto tradition, by men in absurdly overthe-top drag. “Sometimes the stepmom is played by a man, too, but two men and a woman (RCTC regular Kerri Norris as Grimelda Stoneybroke) playing in combination I think is the best.” Appearing as sisters Atrocia

and Deplorabelle are RCTC favourite Alan Cedargreen and newcomer Mark Manning. “He’s very, very good,” noted King. “Very front and centre.” Other regulars of King’s panto stock company on hand are King’s husband, Geoff, as musical director; keyboardist with percussionist Sheila Rebelato; Norris’ husband, Stephen Elcheshen, reprising his role as Buttons the page, who’s Cinders’ only human friend (two young Elcheshens, daughters Aeron and Cayleigh are also in the cast); and King’s son, James, in his accustomed role as the Demon King, representative of the forces of evil. Ready to battle him for supremacy is Erin Coon — last year’s principal boy in Robinson Crusoe — as the Fairy Godmother. Coon won King’s approbation by heeding the director’s advice that the fairy is also a “tough broad.” “She came out to audition with a Jersey accent,” King laughed. Playing the title role is Melissa Paras, seen to advantage as principal girl in last year’s White Rock pantomime, Pinocchio. “She’s a very nice soprano — a musical theatre grad from Capilano College. She’s adorable and quite funny, too — more Disney than Disney.” Jeremy Glass, last year’s King Neptune, is back as Cinderella’s befuddled father, Baron Stoneybroke, while the show’s two girlboys, Prince Charming and his major domo Dandini are played by Andie Francis and Jackie Bruce. Other historic traditions linger in King’s version, including an exchange that’s been in versions of show since the 19th century (“Your foot wouldn’t fit in the crystal slipper!” “Your foot wouldn’t fit in Crystal Palace!”) and the transformation scene at the end in which principals sport resplendent finale costumes (“it’s the only remaining piece of the Harlequinade,” King noted). But other elements are right up to date, she adds — including topical gag lines that are always a popular part of pantomimes. “Obviously we’re going to hit Rob Ford, and Stephen Harper and the Senate scandal — and the current state of the roads.” For more, visit www.rctheatreco.com

The last Township council meeting of 2013 opened with Christmas carols courtesy of the D.W. Poppy Secondary School choir.

A gift that keeps on giving Haven’t found that perfect Christmas present yet for those hard to buy people in your life? Photographers Trav and Ash, animal lovers, bloggers and volunteers at Langley Animal Protection Society, are donating the entirety of their gift certificates for photo sessions to LAPS. The funds will go to medical costs, food, a place to sleep, training, and help to find a forever home for animals that have found themselves at the Patti Dale Animal Shelter in Langley. Travis and Ashley Shulz have been doing photo sessions with Langley’s homeless animals for years now, helping to capture the best in these furry felines and canines to help them get adopted. The happy couple got one of their dogs from LAPS and it started them on a path of wanting to volunteer. Both in their 20s, and technologically savvy, they knew they could put their talents behind the lens into good use. The pair do photo sessions with new arrivals and hard to place cats and dogs every two weeks. They have two dogs and a cat themselves. They say they offer a different kind of photo session. The pair said they really connect with their subjects, making the results really authentic, both pet and humans. Check out their work at travandashblog.com or call them at 604538-5628.

Andre Gress demontstrates his board-breaking abilities at the Douglas Recreation Centre earlier this month. The 23-year-old recently received his black belt in Kyokushin karate. He has been practising the sport since he was eight years old. A LY S S A O’ D E LL Langley Time s

Good things come to those who wait. Those words hold such significance to Andre Gress, that he has them tattooed across his arm. “But that is the type of guy he is,” explained his teacher, Sensei Leo van den Boogaard. “I say it to him — ‘put your nose to the grindstone, don’t say anything and keep training, and good things will come.’” “People want things, but they don’t always want to put the time in,” van den Boogaard added. “I see this as an instructor because I have had well over a thousand students in my dojo and it is not for everybody.” “He stuck with it and it is a real testament to him and his perseverance,” van den Boogaard said. Van den Boogaard has been practising karate for 40 years and has run a Langley branch of the Mas. Oyama’s Kyokushin Karate out of the Douglas Park Recreation Centre since 1993. Prior to that, he ran a dojo out of Newton. Van den Boogaard estimates that out of about every 1,000

students, one will successfully complete the required testing and be awarded their black belt. But when Gress started the sport 15 years ago at the age of eight, aspiring to earn his black belt was not the goal. It was simply something his parents put him in in order to keep the Aldergrove child busy and active. “It went from being an extracurricular activity that my parents encouraged me to do to being a lifestyle for me,” said Gress, who is now 23. “This is something that has developed me as the person I am today.” Kyokushin is a style of standup, full contact karate that has been practised since 1954. It is rooted in a philosophy of selfimprovement, discipline and hard training. But all of the time he has put into working towards his black belt, has been worth it. “I knew one day I would get my black belt,” he said. “It has been a journey. It’s something you have to be patient with, I understood the benefit of being absolutely ready for testing.” The belt system sees a person begin as a white belt, then

Recreation Centre on Dec. 3. Gress called the pursuit of the black belt a milestone in his life. “It really made me value being patient and asking myself how badly did I want to do this,” he said. Gress says his journey to the black belt has taught him quite a bit. “There is more to it than just learning to fight in our style,” he explained. “It is about valuing not just the things you have in life, but valuing yourself, what you are able to do do and how big of a drive you need to have.” “I would say all of this has really disciplined me.” Van den Boogaard has trained about six other black belts in his 20-plus years as an instructor, all of whom have gone on to open their own dojos. Gress may very well open his own dojo one day down the road, but for the time being, he is focused on finishing his schooling. Gress, who is studying in the creative writing program at Kwantlen Polytechnic University and aspires to be a screenwriter, wants to use what he has learned through karate to teach people about values.

Soccer club hits goal This year’s annual Langley FC Food Bank Challenge surpassed all expectations, according to the club’s executive team. The Langley FC U16 Cyclones girls soccer team helped make this year’s effort a success, collecting more than 600 items as a team with the generous support of Buy-Low Foods in both Walnut Grove and Brookswood. They will take home a gift of team hoodies in recognition of their contribution. Every year the Langley FC issues a challenge to all their teams to collect for the local food bank each December, with the goal of instilling the need and desire to give back to the less fortunate in our community. •••••

Bobcats tops at Christmas tourney The Brookswood Bobcats continue to steamroll the competition, winning their second tournament of the year, and once again in decisive fashion. The senior girls basketball team —  ranked No. 1 among Triple-A schools in the province — was competing at the Victoria Christmas Tournament. They also won the Telus Classic earlier this month, winning their four games by an average of 44 points per game. The ’Cats went a perfect 3-0, overcoming a slow start in the first game to gradually increase their margin of victory by the third and final game. Brookswood opened with a 68-51 win over the Claremont Spartans in game which coach Neil Brown admitted his team was “nervous and did not finish plays.” “We were ripe for the picking,” the

coach said. Jessie Brown led the way with 21 points while Tayla Jackson had a monster game with 16 points and 15 rebounds. The second game saw more composure and better finish as they hammered the Isfeld Ice 92-45 behind Brown’s 20 points and Jackson’s 16. And they wrapped things up with an 80-41 win over the Oak Bay Breakers in the championship final. Leading the way was Aislinn Kong, who ran the offence to perfection, played tight defence and scored 27 points. She also got things done defensively, holding one of Oak Bay’s top players off the scoreboard. A big key to the tournament title was the Bobcats ability to hit from beyond the arc as they struck on 38 per cent of their three-point shots (27-for-71).
