Icy road blamed in fatal crash MONIQUE TAMMINGA Times Reporter

DAN FER GUS ON L an gley Tim es

Icy road conditions were likely to blame when this vehicle ended up in a ditch along Old Yale Road on Tuesday morning. With temperatures hovering around freezing, more than 50 crashes were reported between Surrey and Abbotsford, including a fatal accident in South Langley. In that incident, a 61-year-old man flipped his pickup truck on 240 Street, just two blocks from his home.

Icy road conditions are likely to blame for the death of a 61-year-old Langley man, after his pickup truck flipped just two blocks from his home on Tuesday morning. Langley RCMP said the driver could not survive his injuries, after his vehicle slid off the road and flipped. The call came into police shortly before 6 a.m. The preliminary investigation suggests the driver was northbound in the 1800 block of 240 Street when his vehicle slid left off the road, flipping on to the passenger side of his pickup truck. The road was extremely slippery and the officers on scene said it was difficult to even stand on the roadway, said Langley RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks.  Additionally, the driver was not wearing his seat belt. Due to the proximity of his residence, it is highly unlikely speed was a factor, said police. The 61-year-old man

was taken to hospital, but didn’t survive his injuries, Marks said on Tuesday morning. Police continue to look into whether or not he suffered a medical emergency just prior to the crash. Police closed that area of 240 Street, while they investigated. Black ice and extremely slippery conditions were reported all over Langley, with many vehicles sliding off roads, some into ditches. Police were busy all morning dealing with many collisions, said Marks. At least nine crashes happened in Langley before 7:30 a.m. — all due to ice. Fraser Highway was the iciest route, causing the most problems, said Marks. Black ice and icy road conditions caused more than 50 crashes between Surrey and Abbotsford, reported the Lower Mainland RCMP. Anyone who witnessed the fatal collision and hasn’t spoken to police, is asked to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.

Crown seeking three years for sex assault FORMER LA NGLEY TEACHER TO BE SENTENCED MARCH 2 0, F OL LO WIN G GU ILTY PLEA MONIQUE TAMMINGA Times Reporter

Former Langley teacher Deborah Ralph will learn her fate for sexually assaulting an 11-year-old boy on March 20, in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster. On Friday, Ralph pleaded guilty to sexual assault involving an 11-year-old former student.

Her victim and his family were in the court room when she made the plea. Ralph’s jury trial was supposed to go ahead last month, but she decided to plead guilty instead. Crown counsel David Simpkin is asking for a sentence of three years in jail for the “egregious breach of trust, given she is his teacher, she became a family friend, he was

He also asked that she be put on the Canada sex offender registry for 20 years.

The defense is asking for an 18- to 24-month sentence to be served in the community. The judge will have to decide when to apply the Criminal Code to the offences, because at the time of the sexual crimes, a conditional sentence was an appropriate Continued Page 6

Aldergrove development gets council go-ahead DA N FERGU SO N Tim e s Re po r t e r

A controversial proposal to develop 19 acres of land into 61 residential lots in Aldergrove is one step closer to being built, after winning preliminary approval from Langley Township council on Monday, Feb. 3. The site near 28 Avenue and 276 Street used to be a sewage treatment plant. It was decommissioned in the late 1990s. 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.

All but one member of council voted for the development, with several saying the money from the sale of the property will help pay for the planned new recreation centre and pool in Aldergrove. “If we want a pool, we better get at it,” said Councillor David Davis. “It’s a first step to putting money aside for a pool,” Councillor Bev Dornan said. “This is absolutely ideal for Aldergrove,” Councillor Charlie Fox said. “It’s going to be nothing but great,” said Councillor Steve Ferguson. At a public hearing on the project last month, several speakers lobbied to have the forested southern portion on the south side of Bertrand Creek preserved.

Councillor Bob Long said the site was “a bit of a war zone,” not a pristine wilderness. Councillor Kim Richter, the only member of council who voted against the development, called it “more suburban sprawl.” Richter tried to get council to limit development to the northern section, but was outvoted Two Aldergrove residents, Angela Wonitowy and Jessica Horst, collected 300 names on a petition that called for a down-sizing of the development. The proposal by builder Michael Sanderson will come back to council at a future meeting for a final decision. — with files from Kurt Langmann, Aldergrove Star

Traffic calming on 29 Ave. STUDEN T WAS HIT ON ROAD IN 2012 D AN FERGU SO N Ti me s Re po r t e r

A vote on traffic calming measures for the road that runs in front of Aldergrove Community Secondary School was so close to passing that Langley Township council decided to proceed anyway. A report on the mail-in vote, which was carried out in November, shows 65.6 per cent of the residents who responded support taking steps to slow drivers down on 29 Avenue, which fronts the 700-student school. The vote was a near-miss, just short of the 67 per cent minimum required under Township regulations and that would normally mean Township staff automatically move on to the next highest priority location. But council decided the work on 29 Avenue will proceed, after Mayor Jack Froese suggest-

ed council should make an exception to the rule in the name of student safety, calling it “a larger community good that council needs to address.” Councillor Charlie Fox, who was principal of the school for about six years, needed no convincing. Fox made the proposal to waive the minimum majority requirement, saying at the very least, “one or two speed bumps” should be installed to deter drivers from speeding. “We had a student hit on 29 Avenue,” Fox said. That incident took place in February, 2012, when 10-yearold Nico Pike was hit while on his way home from school. “There have been accidents through the course of years [because] people don’t respect the school zone in that area, they just don’t.” Councillor Bob Long suggested waiting until after

some already-approved crosswalk improvements were made at the school this year. “Let’s see what happens,” Long said. Councillor Kim Richter agreed with Long, saying she was concerned that only 19 per cent of the area residents surveyed actually voted, 259 out of 1,342 people. “We’re making a decision to spend money on the sayso of a small group of people,” Richter said, adding “we can come back to this next year.” Councillor Bev Dornan said a low response rate is not unusual for that kind of survey and the project should go forward, rather than cancelling it based on a difference of one or two votes. The Fox proposal to waive the 67 per cent approval requirement and have the work go ahead passed by a 6-3 vote.

City taxes up to pay for crumbling infrastructure B REN D A AN D E R SO N Ti m e s Re po r t e r

Rising labour and policing costs and infrastructure that is rapidly approaching the end of its useful life are among the reasons that Langley City home and business owners will see their tax bill rise again this year. On Feb. 3, Langley City council began debating a budget that calls for an overall tax increase of 2.71 per cent which aims to put an additional $593,250 in City coffers in 2014. Owners of detached homes will see that increase of 2.71 per cent on their tax notices this year, while strata owners — condos and townhouses — are looking at a one per cent jump. In practical terms, that means the average single family dwelling will pay $2,731 — up about $72 over 2013 — while strata property owners will see their taxes rise from $1,262 last year to $1,275 in 2014 — a $13 increase. Those figures include a .75 per cent infrastructure levy — for a total of $164,000 — which will go into a fund dedicated to the replacement of aging sewer and water lines, road repair, traffic signals, etc. Pipes are normally expected to last 50 to 60 years, explained City CAO Francis Cheung. Most of the lines south of the Nicomekl floodplain were installed in the 1970s, but acidic soil has led to a faster-than-average corrosion of the pipes, meaning they will need to be replaced over the next several years. In addition to the $164,000 — which, from a capital perspective, isn’t a lot of money, said Cheung — the City is also committing $500,000 from taxation to capital works reserve. The City’s goal is not just to maintain the status quo, but to get ahead of the curve,

Darrin Leite presented the City’s 2014-18 financial plan at an open house on Feb. 5. said Cheung. “We need to replace what we’re losing in terms of casino revenue,” he said, referring to the municipality’s major source of capital funding. The City receives 10 per cent of Cascades Casino’s net proceeds each year. Its gaming funds peaked in 2007, when the City took in just over $7 million. Since then, proceeds have steadily declined each year because of online gaming and other competition. In 2013, the City received $5.78 million and it expects to take in $5.75 million in 2014. In addition to funding capital projects, a portion of the City’s casino revenue also goes into an enterprise fund which can be spent at council’s discretion, while another portion is distributed each year in the form of community grants. Policing and municipal wages, are once

again the two largest cost drivers in the City of Langley. Salaries and wages for City employees as well as council remuneration, will total $11.8 million in 2014, up from $11. 4 million last year. Policing costs, meanwhile, are set to rise by $252,000 to just over $10.3 million. More than one-third of the proposed property tax increase is earmarked to pay for both local policing — which the City shares with the Township — as well as helping to pay for the Lower Mainland’s eight integrated teams, including homicide investigation, traffic enforcement and gang-related issues. Overall policing costs account for nearly half the City’s annual taxation revenue (45 per cent). However, the City also banked a $600,000 operating surplus in 2013, thanks in large part to the collection of unanticipated development fees which were paid earlier than expected. Following the Feb. 3 presentation by Darrin Leite, the City’s director of corporate services, Councillor Dave Hall suggested a number of changes could be made to the budget in light of the surplus. One major project on the horizon this year is the long-awaited construction of a new Timms Community Centre, which is expected to break ground in the fall. At $14.3 million, the new community centre will contain all the amenities of the former centre — a weight room, space for fitness classes community meeting rooms — as well as a gymnasium. Of that figure, $11 million will come from casino funds, $3 million from the capital works fund and $150,000 each from the City’s off-street parking fund and the 2013 surplus. “Why are we not targeting more of the surplus directly to Timms?” asked Hall, who suggested the scope of the recreation

centre could be much greater than it is. Garbage and recycling fees, meanwhile, are budgeted to remain the same as last year, but Hall is calling for a rebate for residents, saying they were overcharged last year for services that were not delivered. However, Leite is uncomfortable with the idea, he said, because there is some uncertainty about the scope of the recycling program in the coming year. Plans are in the works to exclude glass containers — such as pickle jars — from the recycling stream. Instead, residents will be asked to return glass to a local recycling depot on their own. While some people may take on the responsibility, two other possible outcomes are that residents will simply begin throwing glass directly into the trash or they will continue to include it in their blue box recycling. If heavy glass containers are tossed into the garbage, tipping fees — which are based on weight — will rise accordingly, said Cheung. And if people continue to put glass in their recycling containers and the materials are discovered, the City will be fined $5,000 per load. “We don’t want to get ourselves in a situation where we offer a rebate and then find we have extra costs,” he said. Excluding the unexpected $600,000 windfall, the City came within one per cent of its budget last year, said Cheung, “With the variables we have to face as a local government, to come within one per cent, I think we’re doing well,” he added. Municipalities are required by law to balance their budgets, noted Leite. “We have to budget for every dollar we have to spend. “ Final adoption is expected to happen on March 3.

The last remaining building of a Fort Langley estate built in 1912 will be given new life, with a restoration that will include the replacement of doors and windows and repairs to its weathered exterior.

100-year-old carriage house in Fort Langley to be restored ‘FACELIFT’ WILL GIVE 1912 STRUCTURE NEW LIFE What stands as the last remaining structure of the extensive Charles Edward Hope estate, built in 1912, is now getting a facelift. The Hope Carriage House, located in the heart of Fort Langley behind the famous Community Hall, has withstood more than 100 years of rain, snow, sleet, and hail, and it shows. Through a partnership between the property owners with both Lanstone Homes, a custom home builder heading up the nearby McBride Station project, and the Township of Langley, which has awarded this project a grant through the Heritage Building Incentive Program, the aim of the restoration is to retain the structural soundness of the carriage house while improving its weathered exterior and maintaining the classic heritage look. A large part of the restoration will be replacing the windows and doors. With the current doors and

windows showing severe signs of weathering and decay, Centra will install beautifully handcrafted Dutch-style wooden doors and traditional custom wooden windows that have been built to reflect the historic look of the originals. All work will be done in accordance with the Canadian Standards for restoring heritage buildings, and will be completed in time for Heritage Week, which runs the week of Feb. 17. Over the years, the owners of the property have shown an unwavering commitment to preserving and shepherding this character building as a significant piece of Fort Langley’s history. Much of the interior remains intact, with cattle restraints still hanging near a curved grain silo wall, and open frame walls that reveal the building’s original timber construction. Charles Edward Hope is remembered for playing a key role in the early development of


the Fort Langley community after immigrating to Vancouver in 1889 from Bradford, Yorkshire. The Hope Carriage House, which is considered to be quite elaborate for its time, accommodated horses and carriages necessary to connect with the Great Northern Railway Station at Port Kells, and is the last surviving building of his estate, which spanned approximately five acres. With the Township’s support and Lanstone Homes’ and Centra’s contributions, the owner is able to watch the Hope family’s carriage house stand the test of time and remain a historic landmark. This is a great example of what can be accomplished through creative partnerships between the private sector, committed owners, and local government in enhancing and restoring something of public value, when everyone works together to achieve a common goal, said organizers.

Brookswood will be changing and growing in the decades to come, and Langley Township wants residents to be informed about what is in store. Council passed first and second reading of the draft Brookswood/Fernridge Community Plan on Feb. 3, and also directed staff to hold another open house before a public hearing is scheduled. The open house will be held Wednesday, Feb. 19, from 4 to 8 p.m., in Brookswood Secondary School’s small gymnasium, at 20902 37A Avenue. “Because there has been so much interest in the community plan process, we’ve decided to give residents one more opportunity to provide feedback,” said Township Mayor Jack Froese. “This will be a further opportunity for people to see what

the plan looks like, to have their questions answered, and to discuss the plan with staff.” The existing Brookswood/ Fernridge Community Plan, which projected a population of 35,500 for the community, was adopted by council in 1987. However, later councils decided to focus on developing Willoughby first. Now long-term plans are being put into place, which will see the community grow from its current population of 13,000 to 42,000, over the next 30 years. With 75 per cent of the Township of Langley located within the Agricultural Land Reserve, development is limited to designated urban development areas — one of which is Brookswood/Fernridge. The Township’s population is expected to double over the

next few decades, and council is planning now to create communities that provide a variety of housing options and services, offer good transportation and employment opportunities, and protect the environment. “Brookswood/Fernridge is an established community and residents want to know what is being planned for the future,” Froese said. “This is the final opportunity to learn about the community plan and have your say before it goes to public hearing.” Numerous opportunities for public consultation have been offered during the process of updating the Brookswood/ Fernridge Community Plan, including three workshops and several open houses.

sentence, defence reminded Supreme Court Judge Selwyn Romilly. There have been considerable changes to the Criminal Code and how crimes against children are treated, said Simpkin. Since 2005, a minimum jail sentence must occur. Ralph sexually assaulted her former student between December 1998 and June 2001, while the boy was between the ages of 11 to 13. The assaults included kissing and fondling, and she performed oral sex on him. He broke contact with her, despite her repeated efforts to keep the relationship going, the courts heard. The victim contacted Langley RCMP in 2011 to report the abuse. Ralph taught him in Grade 5 at James Kennedy Elementary School. However, the sexual interference didn’t occur until she was no longer his teacher. The court learned that Ralph went to the victim’s family home to congratulate him on graduating from her class, and to offer him a job cleaning a



family pool for the summer. She told a court-ordered forensic psychologist that she considered her victim to be gifted and different. She connected with him better than she did her own husband and said her feelings on the relationship with her victim was akin to “young love” and that she didn’t see the harm that it would cause him. The victim told the court, through his victim impact statement, that Ralph preyed on him because she knew his family life was unstable. The victim explained how Ralph stole his childhood from him and has caused irreparable harm to his life, causing him to escape the shame and guilt by using drugs and alcohol, starting at the age of 12. He drowned his guilt in alcohol, all the while not telling anyone what had happened to him. He eventually told his mother, who got him into counselling right away in 2005. After coming out of rehab later in life, he found the strength to go to police in 2011. He suffers from depression and even with extensive counselling, has struggled to stay at work and function, he said.

John Dance, shown with his canine friends, was a well-known Langley businessman and community volunteer. He died on Tuesday.

John Dance passes away Well-known Langley businessman and volunteer John Dance died Tuesday, after a fall last week. He was 77. Mr. Dance operated insurance agencies in Langley City and Aldergrove for many years, but was probably best known for his many years of service with three of Langley’s Rotary Clubs. Most recently, he was a member of the Langley Sunrise Club. He also was a former president of the Langley Chamber of Commerce. As a community volunteer, he was involved in a large number of community events and fundraisers. He was president of the Langley Days Society and a founding member of Langley’s Citizens on Patrol. He worked in his early years as a milkman, but then went into the insurance business, first in life insurance and then expanding to offer general and auto insurance. “It was a family office with his wife Gail, myself and at one point Dad had Gail’s first husband Bill working with us,” said his daughter Tracy Dance-Olson. “At home you could often find Dad doing Autoplan at the kitchen table for customers that had forgot to renew. Sometimes he would be so busy when I came to visit, I would be helping

out renewing auto insurance at the kitchen table.” In the 1980s, one of Mr. Dance’s employees had a new baby and had trouble finding daycare, “so Dad being Dad said to Susan “just bring the kid to the office then” and she did. Lindsay became well-known to the customers and was even featured in some of our advertising,” recalled Dance-Olson. David Truman, assistant governor of Rotary District 5050, said Mr. Dance was the only person who had belonged to three Langley Rotary clubs. His service was recognized by Rotary by awarding him three Paul Harris Fellowships. He was a leading organizer of Rotary Tip ‘n Taste, and had over 35 years of perfect attendance at Rottary meetings. He is survived by his wife Gail, four children, Melanie, Tracy, Brent and Michele, four grandchildren and three great-grandchildren, with a fourth due any day. He also has three step-children, Serena, Venetia and Rick, and three step-grandchildren. A celebration of life is being planned for Feb. 22. The time and location are yet to be confirmed. See The Times’ website for updates.

OUR GOAL As a way of saying thank you for saving her life, Maya and her family have pledged to raise $100,000 to help the hospital purchase more equipment to help other families.

Chaos on the roads


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

No agency in charge of maintaining roads can get it right at all times, yet it seems that many of them in the Lower Mainland were caught unawares by wet roads and freezing conditions on Monday night. The result was a chaotic situation on the roads in most areas early Tuesday, with the most tragic result in South Langley, where a 61-year-old man died on 240 Street when his pickup truck slid into a ditch. Langley RCMP members who were called to the scene at about 6 a.m. said the road was so slippery they could barely stand on it. As many maintenance outfits were ready in case snow fell over the long weekend, it is puzzling that the situation Monday night seemed to catch them by surprise. It’s not as if we don’t get rain here in the winter months, and there are times that the skies clear afterwards and the temperatures drop below freezing. Yet there were hundreds of crashes on Tuesday morning, with a fair number of these in Langley. Drivers must also accept their share of the blame. Too many people drive as if the roads are dry at all times. They do not slow down for rainy conditions, and even in snow, they rarely take the foot off the gas. Yet when temperatures are close to freezing, conditions can change significantly. They can be very different from one area to another, and change quickly. Caution should be the approach that drivers apply in such situations. Hopefully, Langley Township and Langley City, along with provincial road maintenance organizations, will look closely at Tuesday’s situation and learn some valuable lessons from it.

In the wake of recent website breaches, do you feel your personal information is safe online?

It is said the definition of insanity is to repeat the same behaviour over and over again and expect a different result. So it should come as no surprise the shambolic state our criminal justice system is in, especially when it comes to dealing with chronic offenders. The approach of the Canadian justice system is almost entirely focused on investigating crimes, prosecuting those responsible and incarcerating them. And when the sentence is up, the criminal is unleashed on the public with no meaningful support or supervision to do it all over again. And so the cycle of crime and incarceration continues. As a result of this approach, police resources are stretched thin, courtrooms are backlogged and jails are full. Not only is this approach ineffective at preventing crime, it’s prohibitively expensive. Unfortunately, very little consideration is given to why people commit crimes, and how they can better supported so they don’t keep committing them. As the Delta Police Department’s recent report on chronic offenders notes, the vast majority of these individuals suffer from extreme cases of mental illness, exacerbated by drug addition. Their crimes, thus, are symptoms of their illness. An approach that treats chronic offenders as sick human beings and provides them with long-term treatment, supervision and support will undoubtedly have more success than the current dysfunctional model. And while the thought of rehabilitating criminals instead of incarcerating them may seem like mollycoddling to some, bear in mind this approach has been proven to save taxpayers’ dollars and reduce crime. The Delta Police report cites none other than the State of Texas as an example of this approach being successful not only from a public safety standpoint, but from an economic one as well. That is why it is disappointing to see Stephen Harper and the Conservative Party’s so-called “tough-on-crime” approach, which advocates more of the same punitive treatment of criminals that has been so spectacularly unsuccessful for so long, just on a much larger scale. The result will be a predictable failure, and will cost Canadian taxpayers billions of dollars. — South Delta Leader

A new tree bylaw, by the back door

Letter’s audacity shocks Editor: I could not believe what I found in my mailbox — an envelope emblazoned with large letters “If you love Fort Langley as much as we do, you should read this. (Re: Coulter Berry).” I was extremely curious about what this could be. Imagine my surprise that it was directly from the owner of Coulter Berry development, Eric Woodward. I started to read this with interest. It was outlining much of what I’d heard before from his perspective, but then my eyes hit the main point. I’ll quote it here: “Unfortunately, the stakes are now much higher than the approval of a single building. As a village, we now face the possibility of the Coulter Berry site remaining as it is today for many years, regardless of council’s first approval, an appeal, or widespread community support. If those opposed to Coulter Berry 2.0 succeed, or delay a reapproval until next year, the Coulter Berry project will financially collapse. A resolution to that could take years. With a half-acre hole already excavated, etc.” As a developer who already owned many other properties in the downtown core,

Woodward knew the bylaws in place about building height within a Heritage Conservation Area before he bought this property. He gambled that he could get variances through to allow his 44,000-square foot, three-storey building built right up to almost the property lines and sidewalks. He almost did get those variances, until council was told by a B.C. Supreme Court Judge that it did not have legal right to allow such a large increase in density, and all work was legally stopped. So now the developer comes to me and my neighbours and basically threatens that we either support him or that eyesore of a hole he dug will stay as it is “for many years.” Let’s not forget that he knew the lawsuit was launched on July 5, a month and a half before his ground-breaking ceremony on Aug. 20, 2013. He was gambling again that he could get this through. I am completely shocked at the audacity, to tell me that I have to support him, if I love Fort Langley as much as he does. GEORGE OTTY, FORT LANGLEY

How was I to pay for parking? Editor: Recently, I had to take my four-yearold son to Langley Memorial Hospital emergency. He had tripped and banged his head on some school bleachers, resulting in a concussion and a gash on his forehead. When we had arrived, he was still vomiting, bleeding, and in obvious pain. I checked us in at triage, and then took him to the bathroom to get cleaned up. Without sitting back down, we were called in and he received the help he needed. Numerous stitches and a couple of hours

later, we went back to our vehicle, where we were greeted with an $80 parking ticket. When was I supposed to pay for parking? Was I supposed to leave my four-year-old injured son unattended, in order to pay for parking? I appreciate the hospital and am willing to pay for general parking, but ER pay parking seems unnecessary, and in my case, it was impossible. SU VANDERHORST, LANGLEY

Opt out of Canada Post Editor: Letter writer G. Hancock of Langley (The Times, Jan. 30), puts forward a common sense solution regarding the myriad of troubles surrounding home-tohome mail delivery. If such reasonableness cannot prevail, then perhaps the next step is to opt out of mail delivery by Canada Post. Is there a law that says a person must have a mailing address and receive traditional mail — particularly in this electron-

ic communications age? Perhaps there is, and if so, it may need to be revised to meet our changing times. Opting out of Canada Post is not an unreasonable approach, considering Hancock’s well-stated appraisal of the community mailbox solution. It’s something to consider. STEPHEN ROSS, LANGLEY

Editor: I have a number of concerns about the draft Brookswood/Fernridge Community Plan. Bylaw No. 5058 was given two readings on Feb. 3, and thankfully, council sent this back for another open house, to be held on Feb. 19. This gives us more time to examine the consequences. One of my major concerns is that Big Brother is freezing our trees. Most property owners probably aren’t aware of the oppressive measures in the draft Community Plan to control their trees. These punitive measures have not exactly been discussed or been up front in the public open house presentations to date. A tree lobby group constantly pressured council to enact a tree-cutting bylaw, back around 2005. A bylaw was prepared, and went to a public information meeting at the Brookswood fire hall in 2007. It was so restrictive and costly, the residents rejected it and council wisely axed it. Now it’s back and even more intolerable, within the draft Community Plan in the form of “Development Permit Area D – Tree Protection on Map 3,” which covers all of Brookswood/Fernridge. Development permits must be approved by council. “Significant trees” are defined as basically most common species over three metres or 10 feet high, regardless of trunk diameter. This overkill will treat existing home-

owners like big developers. They will have to submit detailed plans prepared by expensive land surveyors, arborists and landscape architects, to do one lot with a single building and/or small projects. Owners of trees will need a development permit (triggered by a building permit) to add to a building, extend a roof, install a patio, or even clear areas to plant a garden or landscape and grow grass in your own back yard, it appears. The design guidelines say “Applicants may be required to submit”... a tree survey (by a land surveyor); a tree evaluation report; tree summary schedule. “Where land or natural vegetation is disturbed or damaged,” a tree replacement plan may be required. “Replacement Trees” are valued at $350 and “Retained Trees” are valued at $1,750. It appears the whole process is overkill, intended to make it unaffordable and difficult. It could cost a homeowner $3,000 to $8,000 and months just to get through the development permit and building permit process, before even hiring someone to remove a tree. It’s bureaucracy unhinged. We need council to resist the tree lobby group and stand up for our property rights. ROLAND SEGUIN, FERNRIDGE Editor’s note — More of this letter can be viewed online,

Taking advantage of the courts Editor: A story was published in your paper (The Times, Oct. 18, 2012) about Roeloff Dendyver and Derek Hall. The two men, aged 73 and 30 at that time, were facing various charges, including theft, falsifying the carjacking of a pickup and punching an officer in the face. It has come to my attention that the charges are still tied up in the Surrey court system, with yet another appearance in court scheduled for last Wednesday (Feb. 5 ). In my opinion, there should

be no doubt on the involvement of the above-mentioned people. As a taxpayer, I am frustrated with the ability of criminals to tie up the court system. These people will never own up to what they have done or the effects they have on others. I would much rather see my tax dollars go towards a better cause. I don’t want to help people who will never learn, and cry wolf. JO-ANN SATHER, OSOYOOS

Township brings in grow-op fines DAN FER GUSON Tim es Reporter

Marijuana growing in residential neighbourhoods will no longer be allowed, under new Langley Township regulations given preliminary approval by council on Monday, Feb. 3. The changes to the property safety bylaw would impose a fine of up to $10,000 a day on anyone who currently has a medical marijuana production licence if they continue cultivating pot plants after March 31, when all of the small-scale growing licences issued by the federal government are set to expire. Under new medicinal marijuana regulations that take effect April 1, growing will switch from the current system of small operations with one or two clients to larger commercial-style bulk growing.

The planned Langley Township ban on residential pot growing will apply to “the growth, planting, cultivation, manufacture, storage, transfer or disposal of a controlled substance, including marijuana, unless that person is authorized to do so pursuant to a commercial licence.” The measure won unanimous approval with little debate. Councillor Charlie Fox called it “a very progressive step.” The Township also wants to ban marijuana production on the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) that makes up 75 per cent of the Township, but has yet to get a response from the provincial government to the proposed regulation that would restrict growing to industrial areas. The Agricultural Land Commission (ALC), the agency that administers the ALR, recently

declared that medical marijuana growing on agricultural land is protected under farming regulations that override the the Township of Langley’s authority. However, the agriculture minister has yet to make a ruling. Mayor Jack Froese has scheduled a meeting with the minister later this month in Victoria to discuss the matter. As of mid-December, at least eight businesses, seven of them located on agricultural land, had expressed interest in growing medicinal marijuana in Langley Township. One of the would-be Langley growers, Koch Greenhouses owner Bruce Bakker, has called the attempt to restrict medicinal marijuana cultivation to industrial areas “troubling” because, he says, the ban was drafted without consulting farmers.

Tree chipping nets $7K for Walnut Grove Scouts A NNUAL WA LN U T GROVE FUNDRAISER DESCRIBED AS ‘EXC EP TIONALLY BUSY’ DA N FE RGU S O N Times R eport e r

A group of Langley scouts raised $7,000 over two busy weekends of tree chipping in Walnut Grove. In a letter to the Langley Township engineering division 1st Walnut Grove Scout Group commissioner Tony Yip thanked Township staffers for coming to their aid when the number of trees threatened to swamp the all-volunteer effort on the first day, Saturday Jan. 4. It was an “exceptionally busy day” Yip wrote, and by 3 p.m. it was apparent there were more trees than the Township chipper truck, operated by volunteer Township staffers Dustin Strandberg and Devon Forsyth, could handle.

There were over 400 trees waiting at the Walnut Grove Secondary School site with more coming in. “We needed to get the site cleared and clean by the end of day, otherwise it might jeopardize us using it in the future,” Yip said. Strandberg and Forsyth called in another Township staffer Vince Moes, who arrived with a dump truck. The extra help allowed the scouts to finish loading and chipping trees by 9 p.m. The second day of the tree chipping, Jan. 11, was “more manageable” Yip said, with the assistance of two other Township staffers who volunteered their time, Tyler Halliday and Ryan Adams. Over both weekends,

the scouts disposed of 877 trees and raised over $7,000 in donations that will go toward program events and equipment. Yip said the scouts truly appreciate the Township allowing employees to use Township equipment for volunteer community efforts like theirs. “We couldn’t do it without you,” Yip wrote. The Walnut Grove Scouts have over 60 Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers and Rovers with 20 leaders. The Township also received thank-you letters from the 10th Langley Scouts and the 1st Willoughby Scouts, who collected hundreds of other trees at other locations and other days throughout late December and early January.

KPU horticulture lab rates LEED Gold status

Langley’s Institute for Sustainable Horticulture lab at Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) has been awarded LEED Gold status, an internationally recognized achievement of excellent Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED). The plaque — which joins the KPU Surrey library and KPU Tech LEED Gold certifications — was unveiled Friday by B.C. Minister of Environment Mary Polak. “We are very proud of the team in facilities, along with their consultants, and the on-going dedication of our ISH scientists. This certification is well-deserved and fitting for this research building,” said KPU president and vice-chancellor Dr. Alan Davis. The Canadian Green Building Council’s LEED rating system quantifies environmentally beneficial building attributes, reviewing a site’s water and energy efficiency, material selection and innovation in design, among other topics. “As part of its Climate Action Plan, B.C. has required all new provincially owned or leased government buildings to be built to a minimum of LEED Gold or equivalent standard since 2008,” said Polak. “Congratulations to Kwantlen for achieving LEED Gold certification for the Institute for Sustainable Horti-

culture lab. It’s particularly challenging to obtain the standard on laboratory facilities, so this is quite an accomplishment for all involved.” While building KPU’s state-of-theart lab, more than 75 per cent of construction waste was diverted from landfills and landscape water usage was cut in half. For the first two years, the building was also designed to acquire 50 per cent of its energy from renewable sources. “The achievement of LEED Gold for a small research lab was only possible through the design team’s expertise, persistence with exploring creative alternatives and commitment to creating a highly sustainable building,” said Karen Hearn, executive director of KPU’s facilities. The Institute for Sustainable Horticulture works to advance sustainable horticulture development through collaborative research and innovation. ISH’s research includes eco-friendly pest management, food sovereignty through urban agriculture and energy-efficient greenhouse construction methods. Part of the lab’s new research facility includes Canada’s first microbial insect pathogens incubator, where the university’s bio-controls research group explores environmentally friendly pest management systems.

Langley’s International Festival Society’s fourth annual multicultural gala dinner and awards ceremony, held on Saturday, Feb. 1, at the Coast Hotel and Convention Centre was a big success both in attendance and nominations. Township of Langley Mayor Jack Froese, Councillors Grant Ward, Kim Richter, Charlie Fox, Steve Ferguson, Bev Dornan, and City of Langley Mayor Ted Schaffer attended the celebration of community diversity. The society received several nominations for the four categories — Youth, Senior, Business/ Employee, and Education. The awards are given to the individuals and the organizations for their outstanding work and contribution in promoting equality and diversity in the community. The Youth award was given to Cole Armour, a 15-year-old Canadian recording artist and songwriter, for his anti-bullying campaigns, child welfare and animal protection and safety activities. Bonnie Hartup, a retired teacher, was awarded in the ‘Senior’ category for bringing the Brookswood Seniors Centre back to life, and organizing many events including Food for Friends, dancing dogs, square dancing, line dancing, zumba, crib, chess, crafts, and quilting groups, and volunteer work at the Langley Centennial Museum.

Township Mayor Jack Froese was on hand to help celebrate the grand opening of the new KPMG Enterprise location in Langley last week (Feb. 4).

Opening a Langley location was a long-time coming for KMPG Enterprise. “On the one side we are in Burnaby and on the other side we are in Abbotsford/Chilliwack, but that wasn’t good enough for us and our clients,” said Don Matthew, the KPMG partner who is leading the new Langley location. “We needed to be in Langley when you look at the level of business and growth here.”

Join Steve Mossop, the President of Insights West, at the RAC Canada event on February 19th, who will share his perspective on the latest statistics on cross border shopping based on a repeat of the poll they did last year on the same subject.

Reports of scammers phoning businesses claiming to be collecting for Yellow Pages advertising have cropped up again in B.C., and there are simple steps to take to protect yourself. Mark Fernandes, spokesman for the Better Business Bureau in B.C., said scammers claiming to be collecting for Yellow Pages is a chronic problem, with complaints about it coming in almost every month. It’s a variation on an old

Yellow Pages Group spokesperson Fiona Story said the company is a frequent target for this kind of fraud because of its long-standing brand. It sponsors an annual fraud awareness campaign in March, and offers downloadable pamphlets and other resources on its website, www. resources/fraud/. Customers who receive a questionable solicitation can check it by calling the Yellow Pages Group customer service department at 1-877909-9356.


Yellow Pages Group won a lawsuit in 2012 against a copycat organization doing business as “Yellow Page Ontario,” “Yellow Page Quebec” and similar names. The Ontario Superior Court of Justice ordered the parent company to reimburse people who paid fake invoices and imposed punitive damages.

Nothing slows determined Jackson GARY AH U J A Ti me s Spo r t s

Tayla Jackson cuts an imposing figure. Jackson, who turns 17 in May, stands 6’2” and is one of the province’s dominant female basketball players. Since she began at Brookswood Secondary four years ago as a Grade 8 student, Jackson has been a key member of the Bobcats senior girls basketball team, helping them to a pair of fourth-place finishes and a second-place finish the past three years at the B.C. Triple-A high school senior girls provincial championships. Now in Grade 11, Jackson has spent her high school years playing against competition that may be older, but not necessarily tougher, especially considering just where she has come from. Jackson looks like a perfect picture of health with her long, lean athletic frame. But there is more to the story. ••••• Tayla Jackson was born in May, 1997at Surrey Memorial Hospital. “The hardest part was she was born perfect and then all of a sudden, she was severely jaundiced and we had to go back to the hospital,” explained her mom Trina. She was kept over the weekend and doctors discovered a heart murmur. It meant a visit to B.C. Children’s Hospital a couple of weeks later where an xray revealed patent ductus arteriosus, also known as PDA. The ductus arteriosus, a blood passageway that normally closes after birth, fails to close properly, causing too much blood to flow to the lungs. The severity of the problem depends on how large the opening is and how premature the baby is. Medications now exist to either close (or keep open) the ductus arteriosus. If, however, these medications do not work, procedures or surgeries are required. The condition is more common in premature babies, but Jackson was full-term. “I came in thinking we have jaundice and I left saying ‘oh my God, my baby is falling apart,’” Trina said. “It was a pretty scary time.” There was a chance the hole would heal on its own, but when that didn’t happen, surgery was necessary. At 10 weeks of age, the doctors at B.C. Children’s Hospital cut into her back and went through her lung to repair her heart. ••••• “It is definitely something I think about once in a while,” said Jackson, adding people are especially curious when they saw the long scar on her back. “Sort of this fascination with the fact that you have gone through this big trauma,” she said. “I have never looked at it as a big trauma. To me, it is almost like I was born with the scar.” “It is kind of cool, because it is something special about me,” she added. While this condition is more prevalent with premature babies, it is rarely seen in full-term babies. The chances of a full-term baby being born with this condition are two out of 1,000 babies, Jackson said. “So it is really rare (and) I think it gives me a little bit of my special edge,” she said. “A little bit of the fighter in me comes from my heart surgery.” Her parents agree. “She always had this spark,” Trina said. “And I think this is how she got her determination.” ••••• The decision to focus on basketball

But that heartbreak didn’t slow her as the next summer, she made the provincial U15 team, which spurred her on. “That was a big confidence booster for me and really motivated me,” she said. “Things can change and there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. So I just kept pushing and pushing and I was able to make the U17 team when I was U15.” She was also a late cut last year of the Canadian cadet (U16) national team. With one more year of high school still, Jackson continues to work towards her goal of earning a scholarship, playing for her country, and then perhaps, one day professionally. “I have no idea what is going to happen in the future,” she said. “Nothing is a given. All I know is that I love the game and I want to keep playing it and wherever it takes me is where I am going to go.” “I think the Tayla you see now is only the tip of the iceberg,” said Brown. “She has a huge upside. “She has to decide what she wants out of basketball, set a course for success and go take whatever she wants. “Nobody can stop her except herself.” ••••• February is heart awareness month and according to information from the Heart and Stroke Foundation website, about one out of every 100 babies born has some form of heart defect, which represents about one per cent of births. These heart defects range from a tiny hole in the heart that will never require treatment, to the more serious ones which require surgery. In Canada, there are almost 100,000 adults who, as children, had surgery to correct congenital heart defects.

Rivermen climb to top of BCHL standings HOCKEY CLUB HAS POINTS IN A DOZEN STRAIGHT GAMES G A RY AHUJA Times Sports

The Langley Rivermen have pulled to the top of the BCHL standings as the regular season hits the stretch drive. The junior A hockey club swept a home-and-home series with the Vernon Vipers over the weekend to push their point-streak to a dozen games as they remain unbeaten in regulation (10-0-1-1) since the calendar flipped to 2014. The Rivermen won their 10th overtime game of the year, 2-1 over the Vipers on Feb. 7 at the Langley Events Centre, before closing out a 5-2 win at Vernon’s Kal Tire Place the next night. The results improve Langley to a BCHL-best 32-12-2-5 and 71 points. They are also now ranked eighth in the most recent Canadian Junior Hockey League polls. “Everyone is just playing to their capability,” said Rivermen coach and general manager Bobby Henderson. “They are a motivated group.” Gage Torrel scored 1:01 into double overtime in the first game while Brock Crossthwaite stopped 26 of the 27 shots he faced.

The team’s other goal was a power-play marker late in the first period from Austin Azurdia while Demico Hannoun responded for the Vipers with 5:26 to play in regulation. The rematch in Vernon saw the Rivermen score three times in the first period. Will Cook, Evan Anderson — both on the power play — and Kevan Kilistoff struck in the opening 20 minutes while the Vipers’ Brett Mulcahy responded for the home side. Liam Coughlin made it 3-2 early in the second — with the Vipers’ second man-advantage goal — but that would be as close as the team got. Zach Urban doubled the lead to 4-2 four minutes into the third and Marcus Vela scored into the empty net to round out the scoring. Crossthwaite made 32 saves in goal. “They decided as a group they wanted to commit to finishing the game out properly, and they did a heck of a job doing it,” Henderson said. The Rivermen have been remarkably consistent all season. Since the season began in September, they have only had three three-game

winless streaks, and only in one of those three did they fail to at least get either a tie or an overtime point. “I still think there is more (but) we are getting closer and closer,” Henderson said. “Our special teams are both going, five-on-five there are a couple of areas that we can clean up in, a couple of things within our structure that we need to commit to, but on the whole, we are getting closer.” Getting complacent shouldn’t be an issue. “They have had a pretty good mindset all through (the season),” Henderson said. “They have been focused out of the gate and when we pushed them, they have handled it well.” The Rivermen have seven games to play and they hold an eight-point advantage over the Prince George Spruce Kings.Prince George — which also holds a game in hand — plays the Rivermen five times over the next three weeks, including Feb. 13 and 14 at the Prince George Coliseum. The team’s next home game on Feb. 18 against the Coquitlam Express.

Perrin sets Canada West career record The Regina Cougars stand in the way of the Trinity Western Spartans women’s volleyball team as the two get set for the Canada West quarter-finals to see which team advances to the conference final four. The best-of-three match begins tonight (Feb. 13) with the second game on Friday. A third and deciding game, if necessary, would be Saturday, with all three held at the Langley Events Centre. The Spartans, who are ranked third in the country, finished the regular season at 17-5 after a pair of weekend sweeps over the visiting Winnipeg Wesmen. The unranked Cougars finished at 12-10 but enter the playoffs as one of the conference’s hottest teams with nine wins in their past 10 games. Against Winnipeg over the weekend, Trinity Western’s Alicia Perrin set a new Canada West record for career blocks. Perrin had six blocks in Saturday’s victory, giving her 387 career blocks in her four years at TWU. “Alicia has been working hard since her very first year,” said Spartans coach Ryan Hofer. “She has definitely learned the art of the block.” In Saturday’s 3-0 (25-17,25-23,2519) win, Sophie Carpentier led the team with 16 kills and three blocks. As a team, the Spartans finished with 13 blocks. “One of the strengths of this team

is that we can block the ball,” Hofer said. “We did that again tonight. We were patient and we made great adjustments and then we went after it. “We blocked very well tonight, which helps our defence, and in turn, our offence.” Carpentier led the team in Friday’s 3-0 (25-23,25-22,25-12) win with 20 kills while Chelsea Wand had 11 kills. She also had 10 digs. ••••• The Trinity Western Spartans, ranked second in the country, will sit back and await their semifinal opponent. The men’s volleyball earned itself a weekend off thanks to a conference-leading 20-2 record in the Canada West regular season. They finished with that mark thanks to a pair of 3-1 victories over the visiting Winnipeg Wesmen over the weekend at the Langley Events Centre. The Spartans won 3-1 (28-26,1825,25-13,25-15) on Friday and 3-1 (25-15,25-15,23-25,25-22) over the Wesmen. Lucas Van Berkel had five blocks in the second game to finish his regular season career with 407 blocks, second all-time in Canada West play. Trinity Western will host the Canada West Final Four championships at the Langley Events Centre on Feb. 21 and 22.

Hawks snuff out Blazers

D A N FE R GUS ON Langley Time s

The scoring stats for Valley West Hawks snipers grew a little fatter last weekend, as the B.C. Hockey Major Midget League team scored 17 times in two games against the last-place Thompson Blazers. The Hawks thumped their Kamloops-based opponents 9-3 and 8-0 in two games last weekend in Langley. The first game was Saturday at Sportsplex while the rematch went Sunday at the Langley Events Centre. The victories allowed Valley West to clinch home-ice advantage for the first round of the playoffs, as they improved to 23-11-2. The Hawks will play a home-and-home series with the Chiefs next weekend, needing one win to clinch third place. The two teams face-off Saturday in Coquitlam at 4:15 p.m., and again Sunday at noon at the Langley Sportsplex.

Slump continues as Stealth lose fifth straight A defensive battle in the first half, the offences came alive in the second half. But in the end, the Vancouver Stealth came up one goal short as they lost their fifth straight game, 10-9 to the visiting Colorado Mammoth. The National Lacrosse League game was played at the Langley Events Centre on Saturday night (Feb. 8). The Mammoth led 3-1 at the half before Vancouver came back to knot the score at six after three quarters. And with the score tied at eight with seven minutes to play, Colorado

scored twice in less than two minutes to take the lead for good. Brett Bucktooth’s desperation shot at the buzzer was stopped by goaltender Dillon Ward, his 41st save of the game. Tyler Digby — who was named the NLL rookie of the month for January last week —  led the Stealth with three goals and one assist. Bucktooth also made his season debut after off-season surgery and had a goal and an assist. Matt Beers (two goals, one assist) and Mike Grimes (three

assists) gave the Stealth some scoring from the back-end. Curtis Hodgson, Ilija Gajic and Brett Hickey had the other goals and Tyler Richards made 37 saves in a losing effort. The Mammoth were led by John Grant Jr.’s two goals and three assists. Vancouver is on the road this weekend on Friday in Denver to face the Mammoth (4-5) and on Saturday in Calgary against the Roughnecks (3-3). After that, the team has a three-week break in the schedule.

Thunderbird gets high marks For the third year in a row, Thunderbird Show Park has been ranked among the best equestrian facilities in North America. The facility came in at No. 2 as the North American Riders Group (NARG) named the top 25 facilities at the annual general meeting last week in Wellington, Fla. “We are honoured to find ourselves in the top 3 for the third year running and being there in the room for the announcement was amazing,” said Chris Pack, Thunderbird’s vice-president of tournament operations, who was in Florida for the AGM. “But it’s all about coming home to share it with the team that makes it happen.” The ranking is based on an overall points score for everything from footing and stabling to course design and ceremonies. Taking top spot was Spruce Meadows. “Thunderbird is Spruce Meadows with a homey feeling,” is what NARG said in describing Thunderbird. The NARG evaluation

Langley’s Lorraine Chappell puts Freelance through his paces at Thunderbird Equestrian Show Park during a Horse Council of B.C. dressage symposium on Feb. 2. Thunderbird made the list of the top 25 equestrian facilities in North America, coming in at number two. also notes Thunderbird’s commitment to annual improvements, impeccably maintained footing, tremendous exhibitor experience and stabling facilities as

highlights for competitors. The equestrian industry contributes more than $750 million annually to the B.C. economy, of which Thunderbird

Show Park plays a significant role. The 2013 season featured two World Cup events that drew competitors from eight nations to the Pacific Northwest. With an

evolving showcase of events and the largest annual prizing in their history, over $850,000, Thunderbird is set for another tremendous year.

Spartans second in CIS polls The Trinity Western Spartans track and field team moved up one spot after an impressive showing at a meet hosted by the University of Idaho. The Spartans set five school records and also won five gold medals and they are now ranked second in the most recent Canadian Interuniversity Sport rankings. Liza Whitehead (60m), Rachel Shuttleworth (600m), Sarah Inglis (1000m), Hazel Ross (60m hurdles and long jump) all won their events. Regan Yee (1000m) and the women’s 4x400 relay team — consisting of Shuttleworth, Anastasia Pearse, Meg Harradine and Jordyn Visser — won silver medals. The Spartans men set seven school records as well as winning a handful of medals. That includes a clean sweep in the 1000m event as Mihai Prajea, Levi Neufeld and Declan White took all three spots on the podium. Nathan Dunford (pole vault) and the 4x400 relay team (Nathan George, James Linde, Calum Innes and Prajea) also won gold. Linde (long jump) and Jamie Sinclair (pole vault) won silver and bronze, respectively, in their events. ••••• The Trinity Western Spartans men’s basketball team will need some help if it hopes to make the post-season. The Spartans split a pair of games over the weekend in Calgary, losing 98-85 on Friday and winning 80-77 on Saturday against the Mount Royal Cougars. The team is 10-10 on the season and one game back of the UBC Thunderbirds for the fourth and final playoff spot in the Canada West Pacific Division with two games to play. The Spartans close the regular season with a home-and-home series against the Fraser Valley Cascades. The teams play at the Langley Events Centre before travelling to Abbotsford on Saturday.

Drive As hard as it might be to believe, this new, larger and slightly heavier (49kg) Rogue is actually more fuel-efficient than the last model. They were able to improve the economy by 18 per cent through the introduction of a new continuously variable transmission (CVT), aerodynamic tricks, and letting the carried-over engine breathe a bit better. Still rated at 170hp, the 2.5L 4-cylinder engine does a good job in city driving, thanks to the gearing of the new CVT but can seam a bit underpowered for higher, passing manouevre on the highway. Overall, the person filling the new Rogue up with fuel will welcome this balance of efficiency and everyday drivability. As part of the winter driving experience, I drove on an ice course in Macaglisse, Que., to highlight the vehicle’s stability system and the Active Trace Control feature. On the first run, through the twisty, sheer ice roads the entire system was shut off. As I crested a hill, then made a hard right turn, the Rogue slid all

In addition, this package includes navigation, a 7-inch touch screen monitor, power lift gate, blind-spot detection system, and lane departure warning system.

Looks Last year, Nissan introduced the bigger mid-sized Pathfinder SUV and this smaller Rogue shares many styling cues from its bigger brother. This, in my opinion, is a good idea. It has a sense of purpose, sophistication and commonality that helps define Nissan’s brand. Nissan wants to portray “everyday premium” with this new Rogue, including such nice touches as LED daytime running lights, wheel arch extensions, integrated mirror turn

the way out to the edges of the corner, almost hitting the opposing snow bank. On the second run, with the advanced systems on, the same road was almost uneventful. The stability and traction control kept the wheels from spinning but the Trace Control System provides just a slight amount of brake force to the inside wheels to help the Rogue navigate the sheet ice with confidence. Verdict The objective with this new Rogue was to be noticed and provide a level of refinement and creature comforts that the competition isn’t providing. The pricing is fantastic, especially the middle SV models. The larger interior dimensions will always be welcome, as buyers like to get more for their money, but it is still small and efficient enough for city buyers.


Safety Tip: Distracted driving is the third leading cause of car crash fatalities in our province, which is why police are out in full force this month as part of a province-wide distracted driving campaign. According to one recent study, texting while driving makes you 23 times more likely to be in a crash.
