Pressure on to preserve more forests here By DAN FERGUSON and KURT LANGMANN Aldergrove Star

Kyra Poulsen and Ken Heschuk of Abbotsford’s Yevshan Ukrainian Dancers perform Pryvit during the Malanka (Ukrainian New Year) event held Saturday at Sts. Joachim and Ann’s Church in Aldergrove. The event was hosted by the Ukrainian Club of Abbotsford Association.

People concerned about a a proposal to develop 19 acres of land into 61 residential lots in Aldergrove packed a public hearing at Langley Township council Monday night. About 100 people attended the hearing on the plan to build on the site near 28 Avenue and 276 Street. The property used to be a sewage treatment plant that was decommissioned in the late 1990s. Based on the comments of those who spoke, residents appear willing to consider development of the northern side of the land, but want the forested southern portion on the other side of Bertrand Creek preserved. Two Aldergrove residents, Angela Wonitowy and Jessica Horst, have collected 300 names on a petition that calls for a down-sizing of the development. Opponents who spoke at the hearing included Kirk Robertson from the Watchers Of Langley Forests (WOLF), the group that successfully campaigned to preserve another forested Langley property last year. “It’s not like we have a surplus of this kind of green space,” Robertson said. “It’s really important that urban forest be preserved for the future.” Robertson noted another property owner is trying to build housing on undeveloped land next to the former sewer plant. “We’re not just looking at one development,” Robertson said. A representative of that developer also spoke against the design of the housing project, saying the road layout would hamper access to their houses. Michael O’Neill of Master Plan Developments said the design would place an “extreme burden on potential development of the properties to the south.” Other speakers expressed concern about the fate of the remaining, unused, sewage lagoon, as well as with worries that the the project will jeopardize habitat, increase the risk of flooding due to run-off and bring more traffic congestion and pollution.

Online threats get out of hand, cops step in By MONIQUE TAMMINGA Aldergrove Star

An argument between a Langley online gamer and a male living in Vancouver spilled over, with police being called out after a bomb and kidnapping threat were made on Tuesday night, Jan. 14. Around 11:30 p.m., Langley RCMP were called by Peel Regional

Police in Ontario about a call they received from a “spoof online phone” about a possible kidnapping threat of a boy in Aldergrove. “We aren’t sure how the call went to Ontario police, but they directed it to us and we located an address which turned out not to exist,” said Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks. However, police did manage to

locate the home where the gamer resided, two blocks away, she said. Langley officers spoke with the gamer’s mom and dad and the investigation determined that the Langley gamer had a dispute with a Vancouver gamer by the name of “Yolandas.” Both had been playing Call of Duty.

“There was some pretend money involved and one was unhappy about it,” said Marks. The gamer going by “Yolandas” is then accused of calling in the threat to police using a non-traceable phone line. Police have since discovered this isn’t the first time “Yolandas” had done this.

Vancouver Police tracked down an address. However, the family had moved. Police continue to investigate and hope to speak with “Yolandas,” who may be facing public mischief charges. “This ties up resources that could have been used for real emergencies,” said Marks.

Aldergrove is Wild about Harry

ART BANDENIEKS PHOTOS

More than 500 supporters came out to show their love and respect for community volunteer Harry Hunt and his family at the Jan. 15, 2014 Kodiaks Junior B Hockey game against North Vancouver Wolf Pack at Aldergrove Arena. Long-time community volunteer Harry Hunt lost his partner of 48 years, Betty, to cancer on Jan. 4, and Harry and daughter, Laura, have also been undergoing major surgeries and treatments in recent months and these are ongoing. The Harry Hunt Appreciation Night was a true community effort and not only raised a considerable sum to assist the family’s expenses but also was a huge morale boost for Harry and his family.

Development proposal faces opposition here FROM FRONT:

Wonitowy says the Township should develop the northern portion and leave the southern half, on the other side of Bertrand Creek, as it is. The northern half consists of scrub brush, but the other side has a mature forest, two swamps, and Bertrand Creek winds through it.

The application notes that access to the development would be via two new roads off 28 Avenue near 276 Street. A road network would serve the 41 lots on the north side, and a road and bridge would cross a tributary of Bertrand Creek to access the 20 lots on the south side. Then it was the turn of builder Michael Sanderson, who brought

three professionals with him to argue for the project. Sanderson said the design will preserve forested areas and will only have a “quite modest” impact on traffic. As for the rival developer’s concerns, Sanderson said the property next door to his is already served with road access. One Sanderson staffer described the trees that are being cut down as an “inferior kind of species” that will be replaced by “more of a superior calibre.” The sole surviving sewage lagoon is to be removed. The design would keep 40 per cent of the total property, 7.7 acres, as “environmental-natural open space” to provide setbacks from the creeks and wetland areas, and a trail network would be built along Bertrand Creek and the perimeter of the property. The proposal will be debated by council at a future meeting before a decision is made.

Kinder Morgan rep says pipeline may move, critic urges council to get involved in hearings By DAN FERGUSON Aldergrove Star

The proposed twinning of an oil pipeline through Langley brought both sides in the debate to Township council Monday night, with a Kinder Morgan representative saying the proposed route may be altered to avoid farmland in Fort Langley while a representative of residents opposed to the line pressed council to register as an intervenor at the National Energy Board hearings. Greg Toth, senior project director for Kinder Morgan, said the company is considering two alternatives, both of which would avoid a

stretch of farmland near the Salmon River by taking a a “jog” through the Redwoods Golf Course. “We are in dialogue with the golf course,” Toth said. He added the company would be required to file a supplemental application withy the federal National Energy Board to shift the route. Toth said the company does everything it can to prevent leaks and spills. “A big part of our focus is keeping the oil in the pipe.” Toth said. “I think we have a great safety record for an operating pipeline.” The existing older pipeline that

runs Alberta crude through Langley is in good shape and subject to around-the-clock maintenance and testing, he added. “They bought very high quality pipe when they built the [original] pipeline.” Toth said a pipeline poses less environmental risk than tankers on trains. “Rail is an order of magnitude less safer.” Trucks are even riskier, he said. If the company receives approval from the NEB, Toth said construction would take place over 2016 and 2017. After Toth finished speaking, it

was the turn of Byron Smith, who spoke for local residents opposed to the expansion. He noted the pipeline, as it is currently proposed, would run through his family farm and the farms of his neighbours. “We did not ask for this pipe nor do we want it,” Smith said. Smith urged council to file for intervenor status at the National Energy Board hearings on the proposed pipeline before the Feb. 12 deadline. Intervenors, if accepted by the NEB, can file written evidence and ask the applicant questions. “You have a very short window to

make a move on this,” Smith said. “It would be negligent for you not to participate.” Mayor Jack Froese said council takes the matter “very seriously” but its authority over a federal matter like a pipeline is limited. “We’ll certainly do our best,” Froese said. “We’ll be working with our staff on that [decision on an intervenor application].” Intervenor applications were to be accepted starting Jan. 15 with a deadline of noon on Feb. 12. The city councils in Vancouver and Burnaby have already said they will apply for intervenor status.

Julia Pahlke Striking back against diabetes

HARRY HUNT PHOTO

Julia Pahlke is mounting a fundraising campaign to strike back against Type 1 diabetes. It takes place on Sunday, Jan. 26 at Alder Alley, 27070 Fraser Hwy., in Aldergrove, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Pahlke is a registered nurse and a Type 1 diabetic. This month marks her 10-year anniversary of battling Type 1 diabetes, something that affects more than 300,000 people in Canada. Julia grew up in Aldergrove, attending County Line and Parkside elementary schools before graduating from Aldergrove Secondary. It was at the age of 13 that she was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Thanks to an insulin pump and glucose meter which she wears around the clock she has maintained a healthy level of blood sugar over recent months, but she remains hopeful that further scientific discoveries will lead to better quality of life for all diabetics, including herself. She is inviting friends, family and

the community to come and support her successful completion of her goal to have no health complications from diabetes after 10 years, with the help of technology created by the immense support from organizations like the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation ( JDRF). Pahlke is also thankful for educational symposiums organized by JDRF, which have been informative and encouraging for diabetics. Her event will raise awareness about Type 1 diabetes while collecting donations for JDRF and the research that leads to prevention, better treatment and ultimately, a cure. There will be a fun night of bowling, a silent auction, trivia and more. To donate online to this worthwhile campaign, visit http://jdrfca.donordrive.com and search Strike Back Against Type 1 Diabetes. Tickets are $25 each and can be arranged by contacting her by e-mail at julia_pahlke@ hotmail.ca

Cannon registry off to slow start in Township By DAN FERGUSON Aldergrove Star

So far, just one in 10 Langley blueberry farms have applied to register audible bird scare devices under new Township regulations that restrict the use of the controversial propane cannons. The municipal Agricultural Advisory Committee filed its annual report on Jan. 7 saying that 13 applications to register devices have been received since the new regulations took effect in June of last year. That is slightly more than 10 per cent of the estimated 125 blueberry farms operating in the Township. The Langley bylaw requires blueberry farmers to get a $125-a-year licence to register their bird scare devices with the Township of Langley, as well as post a notice before they use one. Some blueberry farmers have balked at the registration fee and notice requirements, telling

Propane-powered crop cannon. Langley Township the bylaw that aims to limit the use of propane cannons unfairly singled them out. That’s according to a provincial government briefing note released under freedom of information (FOI) regulations. “They [the farmers] have expressed concern that the registration requirement singles out their industry with an additional burden

not carried by other agricultural industries under the Farm Practices Protection Act,” the note says. “They are also concerned with the precedent of being required to post a sign at their driveway when using propane cannons.” The new Township bylaws restrict how often the cannons can be fired, allowing one firing every five minutes for a single cannon. They also require a 100-metre setback from horse trails. The bylaw sets escalating fines for violating the rules, $150 for a first offence, $350 for a second and $500 for a third and any subsequent offence. The regulations were drafted by the Propane Cannon Task Force, which was created by the municipal Agricultural Advisory Committee. Township began enforcement of the new rules in July, following their final approval on June 24 by Langley Township council by a 7-1 vote.

VICTORIA – Neil Young’s anti-oilsands concert tour was the perfect distillation of the American enviro-assault on its dependent northern neighbour that’s been going on for a decade or more. After touring Fort McMurray in his electric car with actor-turned-protester Daryl Hannah, the 68-yearold Young covered all the big propaganda hits and added his own fantasy facts. It looks like a war zone up there! Hiroshima! If it keeps going it will be like the Moon! There’s no reclamation! Tar sands oil is all going to China, and that’s why their air is so bad! All of those statements are false. And then Young dropped his own nuclear bomb, claiming cancer rates in Fort Chipewyan are 30 per cent higher than, well, somewhere else. Chief Allan Adam of the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation has cited a discredited study by former community doctor John O’Connor to press the same claim. The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta reviewed O’Connor’s claims in 2009. It concluded that “Dr. O’Connor made a number of inaccurate or untruthful claims” about cancer patients, and then refused to provide patient information after his claims made international news. Retired professor David Schindler toured with Young and continued to push the

Old man, take a look at your facts

health scare, referring darkly to newer research showing increased mercury and PAH (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon) contamination. When you peel back the propaganda and journalistic hype, these studies mainly reveal that such toxins are on the rise, but are found in much higher concentrations around large cities where fuel is consumed. The cancer claims were then debunked by a Royal Society of Canada expert panel in 2010. This cancer scare is the most damaging and dishonest part of the selective attack on Alberta. The oil industry, politicians and most of the media seem unwilling to examine it critically. Climate scientist-turnedpolitician Andrew Weaver was at Young’s Toronto news conference. He says there were no questions for him, Adam or Young’s other validator, David Suzuki, who previously worked with Schindler on a slanted oilsands documentary for the CBC. Weaver calculates that Young’s claim about greenhouse gas emissions is substantially correct, if you include emissions from the finished fuels. Weaver refused any comment on the cancer claims. Young included the obligatory sneering comparison between Stephen Harper and George W. Bush, which is another sign he’s lived in California too long. He seemed unaware that the

NDP’s Thomas Mulcair and Liberal leader Justin Trudeau support continued oilsands development. As for moonscapes, Young could have driven his famous electric Lincoln from his Redwood City mansion on a hill to nearby Bakersfield, to view the greasy expanses of closely packed pumpjacks reaching to the horizon, still expanding due to hydraulic fracturing. Young could have visited North Dakota, where the second shale oil train explosion luckily didn’t kill anyone. It seems there will be no remake of Young’s classic Kent State lament dedicated to 47 Dead in Old Quebec. That’s American oil, so no protests. Chief Adam was frank in an interview on CTV about using the “Honour the Treaties” tour to strengthen his legal position. Young’s concert tour put $75,000 in his fund to pay lawyers. Oil isn’t the only thing being extracted here. By the end of the tour Sunday, Young and Adam conceded they weren’t trying to shut the Athabasca oilsands down, just start a dialogue. Thanks to uncritical media coverage, there will no doubt be discussions at dinner tables and in classrooms all over the world about the terrible Alberta tar sands and the cancer they don’t actually cause.

Editor: I tried to take the Township’s online “waterwise” survey, but after filling it out, the submit button would not work. I can’t help but think this is to further frustrate the average Township taxpayer like myself when it comes to our local water restrictions. I submit the following for a reasonable response that actually makes sense and is fair to all taxpayers of Township: I would like someone to explain why we pay the same annual water bill as a family of four or five (or more) when there are only two of us. We both work each day and to be restricted to certain hours is totally unfair. When we moved here from South Surrey about three years ago we immediately requested a water meter. We were told we could not have one unless we had a suite. This sounds like I am being encouraged to house another family, thereby using more water locally, creating more garbage and clogging the local parking that actual taxpayers pay for, not to mention other valued services. Although we are taxpayers and pay for our water year-round we are not able to use it as realistically expected between June 1 and September. I am restricted to 4 to 9 a.m., only, and only on Monday, Wednesdays and Saturdays. I don’t see too many people out at 4 a.m. before work, watering. Well, the exception is the usual cheaters that never seem to be reprimanded for not following the rules. If I name a few can I get my water meter? We are not able to freely water when we choose. I understand not watering during peak sun hours but the restricted hours do not match our schedule. Or is that the intent, pay and pay but provide no real services? Feels a bit like reverse billing. I am not able to wash my own car, with water I (over) pay for, in my own driveway, on land I pay taxes for. I am able to go to the local cash wash and use all the water I want. I cannot power wash my own house, on my own property with water I (over) pay for, but I am able to hire someone to come to my house, hook up their power washer and use all the water they want. I am not able to water my lawn, if and when I should see the need, but the Township can have their own little lush “field of dreams” at Aldergrove Park, year after year. If the local cliche is to let it go golden, because it will green up at the first fall rainfall, why is the Township exempt? Is it because you’re using all the water I pay for but am not allowed to use? Even when I’ve requested a water meter? I understand the need for water conservation and the supposed issue of us not having enough infrastructure to handle the summer load. I, as a taxpayer am merely asking for fairness; apply the same rules to everyone equally. Let me have my water meter. Let me use the water I pay for, as I choose to use it, when it’s convenient for me. I’m an adult and I assure you I can handle my water usage responsibly. Don’t get me started on the “green can” police either. Rick Bystrom, Aldergrove

Aldergrove Financial Group staff raises $13,000 for United Way Aldergrove Star

Aldergrove Financial Group staff started 2014 helping those in need by raising $13,000 for the United Way of the Fraser Valley. “Every year, our staff is proud to participate in a number of fundraising activities to help hundreds of local children and families who are in need of support,” says Aldergrove Credit Union CEO Gus K. Hartl. The United Way raises funds annually to provide essential social service grants to local agencies, resulting in a strong safety net of services available to individuals in need throughout the community. Besides fundraising, the United Way is also involved in community development. This brings together like-minded people, groups, agencies, governments, and businesses in creating partnerships to invest in the future of our communities.

Editor: Bell “Let’s Talk Day” 2014 happens on January 28. The goal is to start a Canada-wide conversation about mental health. A very important conversation to have. As a mother, grandmother, author, family counselor at a drug and alcohol treatment centre on Vancouver Island, and recovering addict, I want to add a piece to the mental health conversation — addiction. Did you know that one in five Canadians experiences a mental health or addiction problem? Mental illness can be described as an impairment of one’s thoughts, emotions and behaviours.

Fraser Valley musical duo Kat Wahamaa and Tony Rees will host the Abbotsford launch of their new CD, ‘Everything Blue’ on Friday, Jan. 31 at 7 p.m., at Cristal Sawatzky’s Level 6 Images Studio. Kat & Tony have built up a loyal following since they first got together 13 years ago, and they are just as comfortable onstage fronting a big band as they are as a duo. They write and play beautiful music together and are real life partners too, although Everything Blue is the first album to feature songs they’ve written as a team. As Kat and Tony say, “A theme of finding joy in the fundamentals runs through the songs, whether you are down on your luck or surrounded by stuff.”

The couple first met in two couples “clicked” on a musiVancouver in 1999 and began cal level.

This tight-knit folk group has been bringing concerts to local venues. Their sound is danceable country folk with some ballads in between. They are excited to be chosen for this special Langleybased CBC show. “It’s a special remote broad-

Kodiaks douse Flames, but fall to Wolf Pack Aldergrove Star

One night after snuffing out the Ridge Meadows Flames 8-0, the Aldergrove Kodiaks fell 5-1 to the North Vancouver Wolf Pack. It was just the team’s second regulation time loss in the past 26 games (21-2-1-2) as they continue to lead the Pacific Junior Hockey League with 59 points. Aldergrove sits with a record of 28-6-1-2, with seven games to go in the junior B regular season. Stephen Ryan led the way against the Flames with two goals and two assists, while line-mate Adam Callegari had three helpers in the 8-0 rout of Ridge Meadows on Jan. 17 at Maple Ridge’s Planet Ice. Elvis Jansonns and Spencer Unger both scored a pair of goals and Spencer McHaffie and Jonathan Philley had the others. McHaffie also had the overtime winner the game before, a 3-2 come-from-behind overtime win over the Wolf

Pack on Jan. 15 at the Aldergrove Arena. Against the Flames, the Aldergrove power play was lethal, scoring four goals on 13 chances in the completely onesided game. Goaltender Jordan Liem only had to make 11 saves to earn the shutout as the shots were 50-11. But the next night at the Harry Jerome Rec Centre in North Vancouver, it was the Wolf Pack’s turn to use a potent power play to fuel a victory. The hosts scored three power-play goals — all in the third period — to win 5-1. Ryan had the lone goal for Aldergrove, his league-leading 35th. The Wolf Pack got goals from five different players as Spencer Quon, Mitchell Crisanti, Marcus Houck, Trevor Maclean and Otis Goldman all found the back of the net. The Kodiaks will try and get back in the win column when they host the Port Moody Panthers on Jan. 22 at the

Aldergrove Arena. A month away from the start of the chase for the Tom Shaw Trophy, the Richmond Sockeyes are just two points back of the Aldergrove Kodiaks for the most points in the Pacific Junior Hockey League. Percentage-wise they’re actually on top, with 57 points in only 35 games—two fewer than the Kodiaks who have 59 points in 37 games. McHaffie nets Kodiaks’ double-OT winner Spencer McHaffie’s goal 33 seconds into double overtime capped off the Aldergrove Kodiaks rally from two goals down in a 3-2 victory. The Kodiaks trailed the visiting North Vancouver Wolf Pack 2-0 just past the midway point of the junior B hockey game on Jan. 15 at the Aldergrove Arena. But 71 seconds after falling behind by a pair, Stephen Ryan potted his league-leading 32nd goal of the year. Jonathan Philley then tied the score five

Ryan on track to break records By GARY AHUJA Aldergrove Star

It is hard to argue with the numbers. Through the season’s first 37 games, Stephen Ryan is producing at a nearly two-points-per game clip as he leads the Pacific Junior Hockey League with 35 goals and 72 points. By comparison, the respective leaders in those two categories last season were Richmond Sockeyes’ Daniell Lange, who had 34 goals and Delta Ice Hawks’ Mak Barden, who had 72 points to lead all junior B players in the league. Ryan, a third-year forward with the Aldergrove Kodiaks, still has seven games to go in the regular season try and surpass those numbers in what he hopes will be his final season of junior B hockey. He is pace to finish with 41 goals and 85 points.

Kodiak Stephen Ryan is having a phenomenal season.

Vancouver player along the boards at centre ice and Spencer swooped in to take the puck to the Wolf Pack goal. The full house of 500 fans roared in approval, as the win closed out the Harry

Hunt appreciation night on a perfect note. Mitchell Crisanti and Marcus Houck had the Wolf Pack goals. Aldergrove’s Jordan Liem stopped 24 shots while North Vancouver’s

Braden Krogfoss made 47 saves in the losing effort. Shots on goal were 50-26 in favor of the Kodiaks. First star was Spencer McHaffie, followed by Spencer Unger and Braden Krogfoss.

Midgets Take Best Shot

No player has cracked the 80-point barrier since Richmond’s Bill Smith did so in the 2008/09 season, finishing with 94 points. And the last 40-goal scorer was Mission’s Eric Friesen, who had 47 goals in the 2006/07 season campaign. Both players also had a handful of extra games as the regular season was 48 games, instead of the current 44. Ryan posted modest numbers in his rookie and sophomore campaigns for the Kodiaks with 10 goals and 17 points that first year and then 19 goals and 51 points last season. Those numbers were hardly a surprise given that the winger has filled a penalty killing and checking role ever since he has played rep hockey as a kid going through the ranks of the Langley Minor Hockey Association.

‘Sky is the limit’ for Kodiak forward Stephen Ryan

FROM: Page 11

“That has pretty much been my role until the end of last year when I started putting up numbers,” Ryan said. “Before that, I was always just a third-line type player.

“Just more confidence in my game, I guess.” Ryan played in the PJHL all-star game last week ( Jan. 13). Brad Rihela, who is in his first season behind the bench of the Kodiaks, is not surprised by the suc-

cess. “I had heard he was a talented player and had some experience,” the coach said. “And right from our first practice, I was impressed with his work ethic and I think that is

a big part of where his numbers come from. He combines his skill with a great work ethic in practice and in games.” “He is definitely a big part of what we have going on here,” Rihela added.

“And if something needs to be said, he will step up and say it.” Ryan is quick to share the credit for his outstanding offensive numbers with his line-mates and the team in general. The Kodiaks, thanks

to an epic 21-game point streak (18-0-1-2) — which was one game short of being exactly half a season —  sit firmly in control for top spot in the PJHL’s Harold Brittain Conference with a record of 28-6-1-2 and 59 points.

They have a 13-point lead over second-place Abbotsford with seven games to go. Aldergrove has scored the most goals of the 10 teams in the league —  averaging nearly five goals per game —  and they are third in goals against. “Just how deep and skilled our team is overall,” Ryan shared about the team’s remarkable run. “And playing with those guys, they make it really easy out there,” he added about his linemates Kenny Prato and Adam Callegari. “Playing with those two guys really helps.” The trio — all Langley Minor Hockey Association products —  have combined for

73 goals and 180 points. Callegari and Prato are third and fourth in league scoring with 56 and 52 points, respectively. Prato has been on the injured list since before Christmas, however, owing to a broken ankle that has him on crutches. Regardless of the role — whether he is scoring a goal or preventing one at the other end — Ryan is just focused on finishing up strong in what he hopes is his last season of junior B. The 19-year-old has one season of junior eligibility remaining. The 2012 Brookswood Secondary graduate is currently upgrading some courses and hopes to land permanently with a junior A squad next season and try and earn a post-secondary scholarship opportunity. Over the past four seasons, Ryan has played a combined 68 games in the B.C. Hockey League, scoring twice and adding 11 assists. He has suited up for one game with the Langley Rivermen earlier this season. “He has got two points a game,” Rihela said. “The sky is the limit.”

Toyota FT-1 Coupe concept

KEITH MORGAN

with the wide and higher stance of an offroad capable vehicle. “The show car combines sex appeal, highly efficient e-tron-quattro technology that produces 300 kW of power yet only consumes 1.9 l/100 km of fuel and cutting-edge electronic applications,” says Audi board member Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg. The 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe is based on its sedan sibling and should be available by mid-summer, starting at the mid $30,000s. The base power plant is a 2.0-litre, turbocharged inline four-cylinder, generating 272 horses, and a 3.6-litre V6, 321 hp is also available. Interesting little feature: because coupes typically have large, long doors, the reach behind the shoulder to grab the seatbelt can be a stretch. The ATS Coupe has motorized carriers to “hand” the seatbelt to the driver and front passenger upon entry. The Toyota FT-1 coupe concept caused a stir among those hungering for a return to the days of the Toyota Celica/Supra. Company officials were coy about whether it will go into production but judging by the media attention it will. The Volkswagen Beetle Dune has a rugged off-road look, largely due to the raising of the body by 50 mm and the addition of 19-inch wheels with large tyres. Just like the old days, the new Beetle features a rear-mounted ski-rack. The concept is actually a return to an idea from January 2000, when VW showed the New Beetle Dune concept in Los Angeles. That was a flight fancy, this concept is built on the current production model and the German manufacturer is looking for the nod to proceed from Beetle buyers. keith.morgan@drivewaybc.ca
