Brookswood tree cutting ban defeated DA N F ERGUSO N Tim e s Re po r t e r

A temporary ban on clear-cutting trees in Brookswood was rejected by Langley Township council Monday and so was beginning the process of drafting a permanent tree protection bylaw. One week after a 7-2 majority voted to prepare an “Interim Tree Preservation Bylaw,” the draft regulation was turned down. The vote was 5-4, with Mayor Jack Froese and Councillor Grant Ward, who originally were the only members of council to oppose the proposed temporary restric-

tions, joined by Councillors Bob Long, Bev Dornan and Charlie Fox to defeat it. Councillor Kim Richter, who proposed the temporary prohibition, was in the minority, supported by Councillors David Davis, Steve Ferguson and Michelle Sparrow. By the same 5-4 margin, council later voted against beginning work on a permanent bylaw to provide pre-development protection to trees in Brookswood. The 75-day ban proposed by Richter was to allow time to develop a more comprehensive tree protection bylaw. During the discussion leading up to the

Monday votes on tree cutting limits more than one member of council referred to the last time the Township tried to draft a Brookswood tree protection bylaw, in 2007. It was an effort that generated controversy and ended with the unanimous rejection of a proposed set of regulations by council. “There was such an uproar,” Councillor Grant Ward said. “We went through this before.” The 2007 bylaw would only have applied to quarter-acre lots in Brookswood and would have required neighbours to ap-

prove tree-cutting or pruning. An April 27, 2007 Times report on the decision showed 54 of 55 respondents complained it would interfere with property owners’ rights and should be scrapped. Shortly before the Monday afternoon vote, the same issue was raised by Fernridge resident Gloria Dreyer, who appeared before council to say the proposed temporary ban and permanent tree cutting bylaw should be voted down. “These laws are an attack against property owner’s rights,” Dreyer said.

Canada Day plans firm up

COLLEEN FLANAGAN Black Press

The Act theatre in Maple Ridge is among the facilities looked at by a committee struck last summer to determine the feasibility of building a dedicated performing arts centre in Langley. Consultant Brenda Beck presented the committee’s findings to both municipal councils on Monday, April 7.

Arts centre ideas shared

BRENDA ANDERSON Times Reporter

The ideal performing arts centre for Langley would seat between 600 and 650 people in its main proscenium-style auditorium, with room for another 200 seats in a smaller, multi-purpose studio theatre. It would include an orchestra pit, dressing rooms, technical support space, a public gathering area and a lobby that could double as gallery space. A café, gift shop and catering kitchen would also fit well within the design. These are among the conclusions of an advisory planning committee, formed last year to determine the feasibility of building a dedicated performing arts theatre in Langley.

Brenda Beck of B.E. Beck and Associates provided both Township and City councils with an overview of the group’s findings on Monday, April 7. The 10-member advisory planning committee — which included representatives from both municipalities, Langley’s two universities and the Langley School District — looked at the size and type of theatre space currently available in Langley, as well as what is offered within a 25-kilometre — or 30-minute driving — radius of the community. They spoke with local theatre, music and dance companies, as well as visual artists, about what each organization would like to see included in a new theatre.

Community demographics were also taken into account during the study, which was funded through $10,000 contributions from each of the five participating groups. Within the two Langleys, 11 existing performance spaces were identified, ranging in size from the 79-seat Langley Playhouse in Brookswood to the Langley Events Centre, which has a capacity of 4,500 in its arena bowl. The survey also included high schools, a casino show lounge, a community hall and a church. On their own, none of the facilities identified by the committee offers all the desired elements of a dedicated performing arts centre, Beck noted. In order to build a theatre

that meets all the committee’s recommendations and provides sufficient surface parking, a 4.2 acre parcel of land would be necessary, Beck explained. The committee estimated the total cost would be between $30 million and $37 million if the theatre was built today. Beck added that the numbers don’t include site acquisition fees or development cost charges, nor do they account for inflation. “It’s pretty preliminary at this point in time,” she said. The funding formula proposed in the report calls for “the community” to cover between 40 and 70 per cent of the cost. Continued, Page 7

Plans for this year’s Langley Canada Day celebrations are firming up, as directors continue to seek additional sponsors for the event. Canada Day will be combined this year with the International Festival, which has traditionally run in August, and has become a larger event each year. The event will be run by the International Festival Society. It is one of the biggest annual events in Langley. There will be four days of activity, with June 28 and 29 primarily devoted to an international sports weekend, with competitions in soccer, basketball, bocce and volleyball confirmed. The Canada Day events will take place at Willoughby Community Park and Langley Events Centre. On June 30 and July 1, the more traditional Canada Day and International Festival features will be in place, from 3 to 11 p.m. on Monday, June 30 and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Tuesday, July 1 (Canada Day). There will be a marketplace, ethnic food, vendors, a party in the park, entertainment and children’s’ events. On Canada Day, there will be fireworks at 10 p.m. Most of the entertainment will be multicultural, reflecting the diverse nature of Langley and of Canada. There are also plans for improv entertainment. Directors hope as many as 20 international pavilions set up. There will also be a “Kids Have Talent” show, open to young people aged six to 12. Three scholarships will be awarded to the winning acts. Admission will be by donation. Directors emphasize that no one has to pay to attend, but donations are greatly appreciated, because of the cost of putting on the event. While organizing is done by volunteers, the costs of running the event greatly exceed the grants and sponsorships which help pay for it. Director Shar Dubas said organizers are trying to come up with shuttle buses to help bring people from nearby parking lots, to ease the pressure on parking at the park and LEC. They are also hoping that some people will come to the event by bus, as there are several transit routes on 200 Street. Dubas and fellow director Sonya Paterson are visiting local businesses and organizations and asking them to consider sponsoring an aspect of the event. Anyone interested in sponsoring part of the event, helping out in other ways or finding out more can e-mail info@internationalfestival.ca or call Dubas at 604-312-8487 or Paterson at 604-649-2414. A number of directors and volunteers attended Tuesday’s Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce meeting, asking for sponsorship and support.

court overrule the Township decision to approve a “University District” on 376 acres at 7645 and 7679 Glover Rd., and 22423 Labonte Cres. Within the three properties lying on the west side of Glover Road opposite the university, 23.4 acres was to be used by Trinity to develop a university district, while another 48 acres was to remain protected farmland within the Agricultural Land Reserve. Metro argued the municipality must abide by the new regional growth strategy while the Township contended a twoyear transition period meant it was operating under the old regional plan — not the new one — and could legally make the land-use change. Justice Sharma said the Metro regional growth strategy, which aims to limit urban sprawl, is only “guidelines expressing policy” not enforceable laws. Metro, the judge said, “does not have superiority over land use management within the boundaries of a municipality.” The decision was a victory for both the Township and the university, which wants to expand

its campus by adding housing, a food store and coffee shop geared to the university community. The judge also upheld the related Township decision to create a residential subdivision on  the Wall farm, which is south of the campus and across the Salmon River and railway tracks. Froese said the Township has legal advice that work on the developments can go ahead while the appeal process is underway. “We were in the right [to approve the district],” Froese said. “It’s the law of the land.” Metro board chair Greg Moore said Metro believes the judge didn’t correctly interpret the regional district’s authority under the Local Government Act

in deciding Metro’s powers don’t supercede a municipality’s decisions within its boundaries. The ruling’s logic that a rezoning affecting only one municipality can’t be considered regionally significant makes no sense because no rezoning would ever qualify, Moore said. “For us, this isn’t a Langley issue,” Moore said. “This ruling is too important to the regional growth legislation. “It has implications not just for Metro but for every other regional district that has a regional growth strategy.” Moore said the issue is not the zoning changes the Township wanted — creating a university district with campus housing and shops around Trinity Western University — but that the municipality believed it didn’t have to subject that change to a vote of the regional board, as set out in the regional growth strategy all Metro cities signed. Metro’s growth strategy aims to concentrate urban-style growth in town centres and keep it out of farmland and rural areas. - with files from Jeff Nagel

Farm Push for ban ‘work of a vocal minority’ Fresh From Page 1

“When did cutting trees on private property become an act of aggression?” Dreyer went on to say that the push for a tree-cutting ban was the work of a “vocal minority” of people, some of them people who don’t live in the area. Dornan echoed the Dreyer position, saying the ban would interfere with owners’ rights. Fox said the Township lacks resources to enforce a ban. “We’ve got three bylaw [enforcement] officers who are run ragged right now,” Fox said. Long said the attempt at a ban would have the opposite effect of accelerating tree-cutting. “Every time you talk about a bylaw, out comes another chainsaw,” Long said. Mayor Jack Froese agreed, saying

“without that motion [a temporary ban] in place, we are perhaps jeopardizing more trees than we are saving,” adding “I really believe in property owner rights.” Sparrow said the temporary ban would have allowed time for public consultation about a permanent ban. Ferguson said the fact a different bylaw drew opposition in 2007 doesn’t mean a 2014 bylaw couldn’t win support. “Things change over time,” Ferguson said. Richter said it was “somewhat hypocritical” to vote down a temporary ban and then use that as an argument against drafting a permanent tree protection bylaw. Richter served notice she will be seeking to have the issue put on the ballot in the Nov. 15 municipal election, filing a hand-written notice that calls for a referendum on a tree protection bylaw.

It says Langley Township is “one of the few municipalities in the Lower Mainland that doesn’t have a tree protection bylaw” and there has been “considerable concern” expressed about clear-cutting. The defeat of the proposed interim prohibition comes one week after Brookswood residents crowded into council chambers to complain that wholesale tree-cutting they said has denuded many acres of the semi-rural neighbourhood. Some suggested the tree-cutting was being carried out by developers who expected council would approve a revised community plan that would allow multi-family housing in Brookswood, a neighbourhood that is 99.7 per cent single-family homes. Even though the controversial community plan was voted down, the cutting is continuing, some residents said.

Langley taking delivery of new, stronger mailboxes MONIQUE TAMMINGA Tim es Reporter

The squeaky wheel gets the grease — or in Langley’s case, new mailboxes. Township Councillor Steve Ferguson raised the issue of community mailbox thefts very publicly, going after Canada Post after his Brookswood neighbourhood box was compromised no fewer than 10 times. In the last case, Canada Post had his mail redirected to the post office in Langley City, while they repaired his mailbox. He was outraged that the office was only open until 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, leaving working people with no ability to pick up mail. “I’ve been working with Canada Post ever since,” said Ferguson. Now new, more secure community mailboxes are popping up all over Langley. “My understanding is that they will

Ferguson said police like the new ones, too. “I have contacted the RCMP and they have stated that on the new community mailboxes there have been next to zero break-in.” “Let’s hope for the best,” said Ferguson. “People care about their mail security.” In the meantime, Langley RCMP just put out a warning for Aldergrove residents where community mailboxes have been targeted by thieves. Mail theft is a significant problem in Langley and many other communities, where thieves look to steal identity.

Township seeks pipeline feedback Langley Township wants input from the community as it prepares its first submission to the National Energy Board about the proposed twinning of the Kinder Morgan oil pipeline, which will run through North Langley. The Township has been granted intervener status, and is focusing on three specific issues: the potential environmental and socio-economic effects of

the proposal; suitability of the design and location of the new pipeline; and potential impacts of the project on landowners and land use. It will submit information to the NEB on May 2, so is asking for comments in writing before Wednesday, April 30. Comments must be from Langley Township residents, and must be submitted in writing. These comments can

be e-mailed to publicinput@tol.ca or by mail to Pipeline Input, c/o Township engineering division, 20338 65 Ave., Langley, BC, V2Y 3J1 or to Pipeline Input, c/o Township engineering division, 4700 224 St., Langley, BC, V2Z 1N4. There will be a second round of hearings to submit information in September, and Township residents will be asked for input over the summer months.

Council has concerns about cost From Page 3

For a $37 million structure, that amount would range from $15 million to $26 million. In addition, the committee suggests that 15 to 20 per cent could come from the province, another five to 10 per cent from the federal government, five to 15 per cent from corporate sponsorships and five to 15 per cent from general fundraising. It was the first number that caught the attention of City councillors. “The 40 to 70 per cent from the community — I assume that’s us?” asked Councillor Jack Arnold, following Beck’s presentation. The way the funding formula is set up — including a proposed annual grant of $140,000 to keep the theatre revenue neutral — is flexible, Beck replied. Rental rates were estimated at a conservative level and could be set higher to increase revenue, she explained. The funding structure is not written in stone either, she added. “If one partner organization took on the maintenance, there could be an inkind allowance for that,” said Beck.

“And a not-for-profit society is projected to run this. What if the not-for-profit goes belly-up — who assumes the risk?” Arnold asked. Beck replied that it would likely fall to the partners. The City is already committed to the construction of a new Timms Community Centre, at an estimated cost of $17 million, noted Councillor Dave Hall. “This (theatre) project is $30 million to $37 million with an escalation factor of four per cent per year.” A project of this scope won’t happen overnight, he noted. “Five to 10 years down the road, we could be looking at $50 million. “Have any players shown anything in the way of green?” he asked. Where the theatre is built is another concern for the City, noted Hall. “Location is a prime consideration for anything the City is involved with,” he said. “The closer it is, the more economic spinoff for the City.” Councillor Gayle Martin asked how the study would hold up if it was to be shelved for 10 years, or whether the entire process would have to begin from

scratch if nothing came of the report within the next decade. Beck replied that because the findings are flexible and relate to a theatre with a mid-range seating capacity, it would likely hold up well. “It would probably stand the test of time better than a large one would.” “A performing arts centre would be wonderful,” said Martin. “But there’s no guarantee it would happen. “If we wait five years, it will probably be $47 million. I’d like some kind of assurance (about) where are we going to go? “A lot of times, governments do studies and they sit on the shelf and gather dust.” City CAO Francis Cheung, who sat on the committee, said the group’s mandate had been fulfilled and that no further plans exist to explore funding options. “It may be a topic for (the next) joint council meeting between the City and the Township,” he said. Earlier in the day, Township council received the same report with minimal comment.

Some Albertans just can’t understand it, but many B.C. residents do not want to roll over and do everything the oil and gas industry pushes for. And much of this resistance is not from those described as far-out environmentalists, but comes from business people and ordinary citizens who live here and don’t want to take unnecessary risks with the environment. The latest proof of this comes with Eagle Spirit Energy, which is proposing a pipeline alternative to Northern Gateway. It already has significant buy-in from First Nations groups in northern B.C., and if enough financial resources are made available, it just might work. Interestingly enough, Eagle Spirit is working with the Aquilini Group, owner of the Vancouver Canucks. The Aquilini family are based in B.C., have operated businesses here for years, and understand the province quite well. The same can be said for David Black, whose company owns this newspaper. He is heading a plan to build a refinery at Kitimat to ship refined oil products across the ocean — not bitumen. Eagle Spirit also opposes shipping of bitumen from B.C. ports, feeling the environmental risks are simply too high. Meanwhile, residents of Kitimat, a town which would benefit economically from Northern Gateway’s proposed terminus, voted 58 per cent Saturday in a non-binding referendum against Northern Gateway’s plans. Most British Columbians are not anti-oil. They do want oil and gas companies to respect First Nations whose territories are affected by pipeline routes, and they value the environment. They want jobs and growth, but not at any price. That nuanced stance is rarely understood in Calgary.

Question langeytimes.com

of the week

Do you agree with the decision to expand the Aldergrove border crossing and add a Nexus lane?

Answer online at www.langleytimes.com

There’s no safety net they

The old saying “charity begins at home” comes to mind with news that 31 seniors organizations in the Lower Mainland, currently funded by the United Way, are not having that funding renewed once current contracts expire. The United Way is quick to point out it’s customary for some of its grants not to be renewed, as part of ongoing reviews of resources and needs assessments, and that it’s actually doing more for seniors now, with the increasing ‘greying’ of our society, than ever before — even more than it does for children and families. The last United Way campaign raised some $27 million, down around $1 million from the year before. It’s part of a steady annual decline since a high-water mark of more than $30 million in 2009. The current contracts, set to expire this year or next, represent $1.6 million for the organizations. While each of the contracts likely represents valuable services for a growing seniors population, the fact is that, in the current economy, it’s getting harder for organizations like the United Way to raise charitable donations, as ordinary people examine their own shrinking resources in the face of higher gas prices, food costs and utility fees. The kinds of organizations left out in the cold by the shortfall of charitable dollars provide temporary shelter for homeless seniors and reach out to isolated seniors to help keep them active and independent. Services affected include help for unattached seniors who struggle to get by on single-pension incomes, and those with chronic illnesses, disabilities and mobility challenges. None of these people are those to whom glib “get a job” arguments can be applied. At some point we have to recognize there are those less fortunate than ourselves, and that human compassion is not a function of black and white profit-and-loss statements. It’s on the shoulders of all of us, whether we’re private or corporate citizens, to give back to our elders — as we would hope to receive some help as we encounter frailties beyond our control. Given the prevailing economic climate, and the frequent reminders we receive that the public purse is as limited as our own, nobody’s holding their breath waiting for governments, local, provincial or federal, to step in and provide some kind of safety net for these seniors and their service providers. — Peace Arch News

Brookswood singled out Editor: It is with great interest and puzzlement that I read news reports of plans to debate a restriction on tree cutting in Brookswood. Last time I checked, Brookswood was just as much part of Langley as were Walnut Grove, Aldergrove, Murrayville and all places in between. Surely, Langley Township council will not seriously consider singling out Brookswood property owners by only taking property rights away from them, while not batting an eyelash at clear cutting elsewhere. So why is the bylaw only aimed at Brookswood? The puzzling part of all of this is twofold. First, it appears that council has just said no to development in Brookswood, so it would seem logical that it is all the other areas of Langley, except Brookswood, that may need tree cutting restrictions. If developers will not be active here, concern shifts to the other areas. Second, an argument is made that Brookswood has so many trees that cutting trees there ought to be restricted. Logically, if Brookswood has an abundance of trees, should it not be all the other neighbourhoods that ought to have cutting restrictions, but not Brookswood? Most people would be much more concerned if someone in Willoughby or Aldergrove took down one of (or clear cut) the few

remaining trees there, than if a few trees in Brookswood come down. As an aside, one would hope that when considering restricting property rights, particularly of current residents, council will also take into account that many people in Brookswood love having trees on their own property, despite the many extra costs associated with maintaining and repairing property as a result of having the trees. There are also residents who plant more trees than they take down. If Brookswood residents cannot enjoy their private property on an equal basis with other residents of Langley, and council does go the illogical route of restricting the cutting of trees only in Brookswood, fairness would dictate major property tax reductions for Brookswood residents. This would compensate for the extra costs of having trees and probably in many cases, loss of property value. I urge councillors not to make any knee-jerk decisions, even as “interim” measures. Property rights are restricted enough, and we should always be on guard against those who want to regulate and control every aspect of the lives of others, including basic property rights. COS VAN WERMESKERKEN, LANGLEY

Plan must respect existing environment Editor: Re: K. Taylor’s letter in The Times, (April 8). K. Taylor describes Fernridge as a “blank slate,” ripe for high-density development. Developers and land speculators are too blinded by dollar signs to see the havoc they would wreak on existing neighbours, and established communities. They can’t see the ongoing destruction of one of the last urban forests in the Lower Mainland, and they don’t appreciate that they would be paving over a vast underground lake and source of municipal drinking water, just a few metres below their feet. We need a new plan that respects what we have. “Blank slate” indeed. AL FRENCH, LANGLEY

DAN FERGUSON Langley Times

The proposed Brookswood-Fernridge community plan brought out many people who live in the area to public hearings, as they expressed concerns about a proposal to increase density. The plan has also started a heated discussion about tree-cutting in the area.

Trees key to neighbourhood Editor: I am so disappointed about the tree cutting prohibition being voted down. I am sad for the community of Brookswood and Fernridge, but I am also sad because how it has negatively affected my little quarter-acre of paradise. We have lived on 204A Street for 10 years now. When we first came to look at the house, it was the huge stand of mature cedars and firs that attracted me to the place. The back yard was completely private. About five years ago, our neighbour to the north moved in and proceeded to cut down at least a dozen mature trees, some of them so huge that two people couldn’t circle the tree with their arms. I was worried for my trees and how they would fare. Last month, a new neighbour moved in behind us, on the east side, and took out at least three huge cedars and a birch. One stump is so big you could park a small car on it. I can now see their house and hear every word they say. As a result of their cutting, my gorgeous stand of trees is in jeopardy from the wind and water changes, as they are left standing unprotected by the loss of the surrounding trees. We don’t use fertilizers or pesticides, and have planted many bird- and bee-friendly shrubs and plants. They are now also in danger, because our trees may not be as stable after all the changes. I have no idea how old these

trees are, but they all grew up together and matured as a group. I do not understand why a person would move to a beautifully treed lot in an area called Brookswood, if they did not like trees. I am absolutely baffled by this. The trees are gone and there was not a darn thing I could do about it. There are so many places these people could have moved. There are even many treeless lots in this area they could have chosen. These trees are full of birds, squirrels, raccoons, opossums and woodpeckers. Soon I will be the only person left with a stand of trees for all these animals. I want what they did to be illegal. It’s not fair or right for them to come here and ruin my space and my neighbourhood. There has to be a bylaw to stop this as soon as possible. There neds to be a temporary one for immediate action, and a long-term, well thought out one for the future. Please mayor and council, do what is right for the residents of this neighbourhood. This is a unique area of the Township and needs to be preserved. This is not the first letter I have written on this subject. It sure would be great if it were the last. L. NICOL, LANGLEY

Land commission changes under scrutiny Detailed debate on changes to the Agricultural Land Commission got underway in the legislature last week, while protesters played to urban voters outside. A couple of West Kootenay NDP supporters brought a basket of homegrown veggies down to help East Kootenay MLA Bill Bennett get through the winter on a 100-mile diet. A group of mostly UBC scientists wrote to Premier Christy Clark, embracing the popular assumption that the changes will automatically mean more exclusions of agricultural land, as well as expanded secondary uses in the Cariboo, Kootenay and North zones. This “jeopardizes species at risk, threatens many common species, and will impact many species prized for hunting,” they wrote. It makes me wonder if these university botanists and bird ex-

It would be six farmers, because only one person from the regional panel actually sits on the provincial commission. “He thinks that it’s unwieldy, and he’d rather have the decision-making centralized in Burnaby. But we changed that. We decided as a duly elected government in 2003 that we wanted the regions to have a say on this stuff, so the intention of the legislation,

Regulations relating to the protection of trees in the Township are contained in the Subdivision and Development Control Bylaw. The Bylaw applies to all significant trees located on non-Agricultural Land Reserve land where a development application has been submitted. It also provides for the retention, protection, and replacement of trees as part of development approval processes. This is a particularly important time of year to protect our trees. The Federal Migratory Birds Convention Act, Federal Species at Risk Act, and the Provincial Wildlife Act advise that tree cutting should be avoided during the breeding bird nesting season unless a bird nesting survey has been completed by a qualified professional. As well, under the Migratory Birds Convention Act, no one can disturb, destroy, or take a nest, egg, nest shelter, eider duck shelter, or duck box of a migratory bird. Site clearing is generally not permitted between March and August, according to the Provincial Wildlife Act and International Migratory Bird Convention Act. Clearing during this period requires specific approval from the Ministry of Environment or the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. The Township of Langley does not administer this process; however, the Provincial Wildlife Act is enforced by the Ministry of Environment’s Conservation Officer Service.

The closure is required for activities during Municipal Awareness Day. We appreciate your patience.

Anyone who witnesses a violation is asked to call the Ministry of Environment’s Report All Poachers and Polluters toll-free hotline at 1.877.952.7277 (RAPP). Violation reports can also be made on the Ministry’s website at env.gov.bc.ca/cos/rapp/form.htm. Keep our environment healthy. Help protect our trees and animals.

Young Langley mom with MS joins walk for a cure MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS IMPACTS TWICE AS MANY WOMEN AS MEN AND CANADA HAS THE HIGHEST RATE OF MS DIAGNOSIS IN THE WORLD MONIQUE TAMMINGA Tim es Reporter

Raising children is no easy task, but for Langley’s Katie Skingsley — who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2008 — parenting presents a new form of challenges as she learns to cope with its disabling effects. “When I’m having a relapse I can’t find the energy,� said Skingsley. “Lifting [my son] is tough. Even when we go out for walks I get pain in my legs, so we don’t get out as much as we should.� When symptoms do re-occur, the change in mobility can also be difficult to explain to her three-year-old who wants to play. Like so many Canadians (Canada has the highest rate of MS in the world), Skingsley was diagnosed with relapsing-remitting MS — one of the more common forms of the disease.  Often people diagnosed with this type, experience periods when no symptoms occur; yet the unpredictable disease can cause relapses in fatigue,

Curtis Bowerman, David Skingsley-Bowerman and Katie Skingsley in Douglas Park, where the Scotiabank MS Walk will begin on Sunday, April 27.

Team ‘Mighty Sassy’ will join the walk on April 27 in Douglas Park From Page 16

Between juggling full-time work, parenting, and coping with her diagnosis, her biggest resource has been her mother, who helps look after her son during the day. “It can be tough if you can’t get out of bed,” she explains. “You can’t do everything by yourself and if you try to, that’s when relapses get worse.” She also credits her husband for being by her side and doing everything he can to make it

easier on her. In an effort to take action against MS, Skingsley and a team of friends and family will be participating in the Langley Scotiabank MS Walk on April 27 at Douglas Park. Her team, named “Mighty Sassy,” will be joining the Walk for their sixth year at Douglas Park. Funds raised are used toward critical research and support programs, benefiting Canadians diagnosed with MS throughout B.C. and nationally.

“I feel hopeful,” said Skingsley. “Hopeful that we will find a cure, that I won’t get too bad, and that I’ll be there for my grandchildren one day.”

Stomach Acid Wearing You Down? Prescription antacids are great for short-term relief of acid reflux, but blocking stomach acid production every single day has long-term risks for iron and B12 deficiency and osteoporosis – calcium, iron, and other nutrients require an acidic environment for optimal absorption. You don`t have to pay hundreds of dollars to a private healthcare professional to address the underlying cause of your digestive problems – our pharmacists can help you determine (free of charge) whether you are a candidate for digestive enzymes, tonics, and/or probiotics.

Conducting an experiment at PortLiving’s Midtown By Kerry Vital

Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant neighbourhood is rapidly becoming the hottest place to live, and developer PortLiving is capitalizing on that popularity with Midtown, a mixed-used low-rise development that will also offer commercial space on the street level. For the next three months, PortLiving is hosting the Midtown Experiment, where businesses can open a pop-up

shop for a week to gauge how popular they will be to local residents. “The Midtown Experiment is an incredibly positive way to bring life and vibrancy to this emerging area, and to experiment to better know the types of businesses that the community will welcome and frequent,” says Midtown Director of Living Robert Vrooman. “We know there will be a lot of demand from retail partners to occupy the space, but we feel it is just as important to listen to the needs of the community.”

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

Midtown will be situated on Broadway between St. George Street and Carolina Street. The four-storey building will hold one- and two-bedroom condominium homes as well as two three-bedroom concrete townhomes. Among the beautiful features at Midtown will be private covered patios, oversized windows, engineered hardwood floors and elegant quartz countertops complemented by a glass tile backsplash in the kitchen. The bathrooms feature in-floor radiant electric heating and glass accent tiles in the bathtub and shower surrounds. Curb appeal is never in short supply at Midtown, with its brick-clad exterior and communal elevated courtyard, perfect for visiting with your neighbours. For more information about the residences at Midtown, visit www.livingmidtown.com. Information about the Midtown Experiment can be found at www.chinatownexperiment.com/midtownexp.

Among the gorgeous features at Lakewood’s The Heights are gourmet kitchens and oversized windows that let the natural light pour in. The Heights is just minutes from Morgan Crossing and several other amenities, making it the perfect place for families and couples alike.

Taste and style at Lakewood’s The Heights By Kerry Vital

Life is extraordinary at The Heights, Lakewood’s townhome development in Surrey’s Grandview Heights that offers not only amazing homes but also a location that’s second-to-none. “The location is phenomenal,” says sales manager Ann Sonnenberg. “You’re a 10-minute walk from the Shops at Morgan Crossing, and there’s a brand-new elementary school two blocks from here.” The Grandview Heights neighbourhood also has leisure opportunities, plenty of restaurants and easy access to transit and major highways, making commuting easy. The Heights is located in a quiet section of the neighbourhood, making it perfect for families and couples alike. The 39 townhomes, ranging from 1,364 to 2,095 square feet, are available in a range of two- and three-bedroom floorplans. The exterior has plenty of curb appeal, with meticulously landscaped grounds and front doors with heritage-style raised panels and

glass. Some plans include a ground floor concrete patio and a double garage. Inside, nine-foot ceilings and oversized windows combine for a spacious feeling, while sleek laminate flooring on the main level is complemented by decorative crown moulding and designer lighting fixtures. Homeowners are able to choose between two colour schemes (Vanilla Bean and Chocolate Expresso), making it easier to put your own stamp on your space. The kitchen is fit for a gourmet with stainless-steel appliances, elegant quartz countertops and a ceramic tile backsplash. Pot lights in the kitchen and nook are a convenient touch that demonstrates Lakewood’s focus on the homeowner, and the custom-designed cabinetry with solid wood shaker-style doors lends more than a touch of style to the room. Most plans also feature a pantry in the kitchen for even more convenience. The bathrooms can easily be described as blissful, with shaker cabinets with solid maple doors, designer faucets and accessories, fullwidth mirrors, ceramic floor tiles and quartz countertops. The main bathroom holds a soaker tub surrounded by designer ceramic tile, while the ensuite features a shower with a semi-frameless glass enclosure and hisand-hers sinks (in most plans.) Many plans also include a main floor powder room with elegant laminate flooring.

Each home has a gas outlet for a barbecue, perfect for outdoor entertaining, and every yard is enclosed. For larger gatherings, homeowners will have access to an outdoor amenity space with a community garden. “Lakewood always builds quality homes,” says Sonnenberg. “Some are available to move in to tomorrow; we also have some Phase 2 homes that will be available between now and the end of June.” Homes at The Heights start at $359,900 for a two-bedroom-and-den home. For more information, visit www.theheightsliving.ca, call 778-545-8737 or visit the showhomes at 2845 and 2855 156th Street, Surrey, open daily except Friday between 12 and 5 p.m.

Last Chance to buy at Zen

Buyers have always known that Zen in East Clayton is an exceptional development. And now it’s official. Zen has just been nominated for a remarkable four awards in BC’s most prestigious housing awards program, The Ovation Awards. Every year the Greater Vancouver Homebuilders Association

celebrates excellence in homebuilding, design & marketing, and has named the finalists in a multitude of categories, Zen was chosen in four of them. Zen is a finalist for the best kitchen in a multi-family development. According to developer Zenterra, the kitchens at Zen

represent the largest kitchens in a multifamily development in the Metro Vancouver area. Kitchens in the four bedroom townhomes measure a huge 16’ x 16, and include lots of highly sought after features like five burner gas cooktops, double wall ovens, quartz countertops, glass backsplash and custom shaker style cabinetry. Most units also feature a 4 x 4 island with an optional built in wine fridge. From the high quality 39oz carpet throughout the upper floors, to the 2’ wide window blinds and the 9’ high ceilings, it’s evident from the moment you step in the door that it’s the attention to detail that makes the difference. The story doesn’t stop there, all the bathrooms at Zen feature quartz countertops, and under cabinet lighting, while master bathrooms also include double-wide glass showers and luxurious warming towel rails. A unique feature that always gets attention is the ‘Makeup Vanity’ that provides extra counter space for cosmetic and wellness items, plus an additional four electrical outlets. Because our West Coast lifestyle means we spend so much of our time outdoors, Zen is designed to make the most of it. The thoughtful landscaping includes open green spaces with walkways that are perfect for that after dinner stroll. With full natural gas barbeque hookups Zen gives the chef in the family a chance to show off their

culinary skills while friends and family relax on the oversized 8 x 20 sundecks. Parking is easy too, with double, and tandem garages and lots of visitor parking for those memorable family gatherings. Other kinds of entertainment are catered for as well.The Zenterra Signature Entertainment Wall features a custom Italian stone finished fireplace, and offers all the interconnectivity options that today’s buyers demand. Despite the feeling of tranquility that living at Zen provides, the location couldn’t be more convenient. Within a few minutes drive there are literally hundreds of shopping options, from quaint sidewalk cafes to Willowbrook Mall and Costco. Zen has also been nominated for three of the most prestigious Ovation Awards, Best Townhouse Development, Best Marketing Campaign and Multi-Family Home Builder of the Year. Winners will be announced on April 26th. The final phase of Zen has been released to the market with 3 bedroom and 3 bedroom and flex room tandem homes starting from just $345,900. Zen’s showhome is located at 196 Street and 66 Ave and is open every day (including Fridays) between 12 and 5pm. With their unique features and affordable pricing the remaining homes at Zen are sure to sell fast. To arrange a personal tour please call 604-355-0166.

‘It’s for the community, by the community’ ALY S S A O ’ DE L L Ti m e s Re po r t e r

Creating community through nature. It’s a concept close to James von Broembsen’s heart, and one that’s at the centre of his new plan to bring sustainable and profitable co-operative farming to Langley. Von Broembsen, owner of Ladybug Landscaping and an organic master gardner with 15 years experience, is inviting any interested community members to get a taste of Ladybug Community Farms at their grand opening this Saturday (April 19). “It’s going to be [developed] in stages, it’s a very grass roots effort,” von Broembsen told The Times from the currently un-landcaped two acre parcel at 20574 28 Ave. in south Langley. His vision for the project is grand, and includes plans for a 60-by-25 foot greenhouse — run completely off the grid — a children’s play area, coffee house, bee farm, chicken coop and community gardening area. Von Broembsen said

the project will be run as a cooperative farming model. “If you roll up your sleeves, you’re going to roll in the profits at the end of the season,” von Broembsen said, explaining that he expects to rely on community members lending their time and skills in return for fresh produce and profit sharing. If local honey, organic produce and fresh eggs weren’t enough of a draw, Ladybug Community Farms also has plans for another innovative food source. “Inside the green house we’re also going to have a fish farm, so we’ll be able to have tilapia and sunfish,” said von Broembsen, who explained that the green house will use stored rainwater and be heated by the gases produced during organic composting. He also envisions the land being used as a knowledge-sharing hub, where community members can hold information sessions on sustainable living. Von Broembsen estimates that he needs to raise $50,000

to complete the vision for Ladybug Community Farms, to be used for everything from sculpting garden beds to raising the greenhouse. He said he wants to see the project up and running as soon as possible, but is banking on building enough community interest and support — through donations, work time and supplies — to get him there. “The community has been amazing already, just connecting me to different people,” said von Broembsen. “I’m trying to do everything by donation … it’s for the community, by the community.” According to von Broembsen, the site of the planned project is currently zoned as single family residential. When he was told by civic officials that he couldn’t operate a community garden on the property, he re-framed the scope of Ladybug Community Farms, hoping to set new precedent for community land use. “It’s my own personal gar-

den, that I’m inviting my neighbours and my friends to, so that they can then share in the spoils,” explained von Broembsen. With interest in eating local growing, and the price of organic produce expected to rise this summer due to drought in California, von Broembsen says now is the perfect time for Langley residents to learn how to produce food on their own land. “I think the timing is right,” he said. “I think there is a lot of us out there who are just thinking differently about the way we are choosing to live our existence.” Ladybug Community Farms will hold a grand opening Saturday, April 19, to welcome Langley to the property. A kids Easter egg hunt starts at noon, to be followed by a potluck picnic. Von Broembsen says local artisans and crafters are invited to BYOT — bring your own table — to set up at the event. For more information, contact info@ladybuglandscaping.ca.

The goal of the project is to identify opportunities in western U.S., Mexican, Central and South American markets for value-added wood products, and prepare companies to participate in trade missions and trade shows in these markets. And by establishing a trade presence in other markets, this should enhance the sales of value-added wood products, thereby increasing exports, boosting foreign investment in western Canada and creating jobs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The collaborative

effort by industry and government to grow these rapidly expanding regional markets for B.C. value-added wood products will result in increased sales, the expansion of B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s secondary manufacturing capability and the creation of new jobs,â&#x20AC;? said John Gillis, the general manager of Taiga Building Products and chair of BC Wood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The wood products sector is one of the cornerstones of our economy and providing jobs and opportunities for economic growth,â&#x20AC;? Rempel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By promoting the quality of locally manufactured wood products in new markets, this project will further enhance the sectorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

value to our economy.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;New regional markets in Western United States, Mexico and Latin America will be the first step towards increased sales and market diversification for many small and medium sized manufacturers of finished wood products in B.C.,â&#x20AC;? said Grant McKinnon, the past chairman of BC Wood and a partner at Pacific Homes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The next three years will be a time of rapid economic growth in these regions. With this new program and funding provided by WD, BC Wood and B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s value-added wood products manufacturers will be well positioned to take advantage of that growth.â&#x20AC;?

Walnut Grove Gators’s Jadon Cohee over the years (from left): Dribbling the ball up the court in Grade 9 with the junior team at the district championships; driving to the hoop in the provincial championship game against the Terry Fox Ravens in Grade 10; versus the White Rock Christian Academy Warriors in the 2013 championship game in Grade 11; and last month in the provincial quarter-finals against Sir Winston Churchill in Grade 12. Cohee finishes as the third highest scorer of all time at the B.C. high school boys 4A championship tournament.

had been 3A but 2013/14 marked the first year a fourth tier had been added. Cohee, who graduates from Walnut Grove Secondary in June, finished his high school career with 264 points in a dozen games over three years. That total puts him behind just Richmond’s Pasha Bains (317 points in 12 games in 1996 and 1998) and Sir Charles Tupper’s Cameron Smythe (276 points in 13 games from 2010, 2011 and 2012). “If any kid (passed me), I would have been happy if it was Jadon,” said Bains. Bains, who runs Drive Basketball Academy, has known Cohee for the past six years when the then-seventh grader joined the program. “For me personally, the fact he finishes as the third all-time leading scorer, the fact both our names are in the record book together, that means a lot. “We have talked pretty much every day since he joined Drive.” When Cohee arrived at Drive, Bains said the coaches knew he

Basketball has long been Jadon Cohee’s life. He has loved the game since he first picked up a basketball when he was just a couple of years old. His parents were both former basketball players, but the game wasn’t forced upon him. The athletic Cohee always excelled at whatever sport he happened to be playing, but basketball was the one for him. “I always gravitated towards basketball,” he explained. “I knew from a young age that I loved the sport. “I just had more fun playing basketball than hitting a baseball or kicking a soccer ball, so I knew that was the sport I was going to pick.” This was in the seventh grade and what followed was one of the most outstanding careers ever in the province in the history of B.C. high school boys basketball. Only two basketball players have scored more points in their career at the 4A B.C. high school boys basketball provincial championships, the highest tier in the province. Previously, this level

was a good player. “We always knew he was a good player but for him to elevate himself to one of the best high school players ever around here, it is a huge accomplishment,” Bains said. “He improved every year and added something to his game, a different dimension to his game.” Cohee joined the Gators senior program in Grade 10 and that first year, Walnut Grove came within a shot of winning the provincial title, falling 75-74 to the Terry Fox Ravens. Cohee earned a first team all-star tournament award for his play. Last year, with Cohee leading the way, the Gators complet-

ed the task, winning the championship 59-53 over the White Rock Christian Academy Warriors. Cohee was named most valuable player. And last month, the Gators lost in the quarter-finals to the eventual champion Sir Winston Churchill Bulldogs, 75-70. Walnut Grove would place seventh and Cohee earned second team allstar honours. For his part, Cohee said it was a great honour to be third on the all-time scoring list. “I believe you get what you put in, so I worked really hard and deserved everything I got,” he said. “(And) I had great coaching and everyone was very positive and believed in me and helped me become the player I am today. “They never let me make any excuses and that really helped me become the player I am today.” Even before his final year of high school, Cohee, a six-footfour point guard, had accepted a scholarship offer to join the Seattle University Redhawks.

And while he is ready for the challenges playing at a Division 1 NCAA program will bring, Cohee looks back fondly at his high school playing days and knows he will miss them. “It was the best time of my life; I got to do what I love every day,” he said. “It didn’t hit me until a couple of weeks ago,” Cohee said about the realization that his high school days are over. “These are the same guys you have been playing with for the past four or five years and knowing you will probably never play with any of them again, it is sad.” ••• Cohee has been selected to play in the B.C. high school allstar game on Sunday (April 20) at 5 p.m. at the Langley Events Centre.

United pair through to quarters After trailing by a goal at three separate times in their opening round game of the Provincial A Cup, Langley United’s Premier men’s team took their first lead and held on for a wild 4-3 victory over Port Moody on Saturday at the Port Moody Town Centre. Port Moody scored in the 10th minute, the 60th minute and then in the 95th minute after the game went to overtime. But Langley answered back each time with Andre Costa scoring the first three goals —  including in the 85th minute to force overtime and again in the 112th minute — before Lee Ellis gave United the lead for good in the 121st minute. The decisive goal came off a Mitchell Rohla corner kick. “We knew we were in for a battle today,” said coach Rob Keam.

“Another fantastic attitude and overall excellent work rate on the day. The players found a way to battle back and pulled us through at the end of the day.” The win puts Langley United through to the Provincial Cup quarter-finals against Surrey United at Willoughby Community Park next weekend (April 26/27). And this was one of two Langley United squads which moved through to the final eight of their respective Cup tournaments.

minute off a penalty kick but Celtic tied the score in the 60th minute when a Sparta clearing attempt was blocked and bounced over the goalkeeper and in. The game would go to overtime with Nathan Rubuliak scoring once and setting up another and Adam Peters and Mark Peters scoring the others. “We played a tough team who battled hard from start to finish,” said Mark Peters, the team’s player/coach. “The team as a group really came together after their lucky equalizer to grind out the win.” Langley United had two teams in the Provincial B Cup, but their other entry, Dynamo, lost 4-1 to Bacardi FC on April 6 in Burnaby. Langley United’s U21 team lost 4-2 to Guildford FC.

Millions of small acts. One big win for our environment. By Scott Fraser President & CEO of Encorp Pacific (Canada)

The success of our system for recycling beverage containers proves that millions of small acts can add up to a big win for the environment.

In fact, last year almost 1 billion used beverage containers were returned for deposit and processed into new products. That includes more than 360 million aluminum cans, 338 million plastic bottles, 195 million glass bottles and 71 million GULQNER[HVDQGFDUWRQV In total nearly 100,000 metric tons of material ZDVNHSWRXWRI%&ÂśVODQGÂżOOV,I\RXÂżQGLWKDUG to imagine what that means, then consider that it is the equivalent weight of 60,000 midsized cars.

The equivalent of 60,000 cars was removed from BCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s landfills, a few cans, bottles and cartons at a time. For example, used aluminum cans are turned into new cans, a process that uses only 5% of the HQHUJ\LWWDNHVWRPDNHQHZDOXPLQXP'ULQN boxes and cartons are pulped and made into tissue and cardboard, saving 17 trees for every ton of SDSHUÂżEHUSURGXFHG3ODVWLFERWWOHVDUHSHUcent recyclable for use in new plastic containers, and glass bottles are made into new bottles and sandblasting material. As a result, the recycling of beverage containers contributed to a reduction of 135,000 tons of carbon dioxide that otherwise would have gone into BCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s atmosphere.

Jr. Blaze ready to play ball GARY AH U J A Ti me s Spo r t s

The goal is a return to the provincial championship game — albeit with a better result this time —  but the Langley Junior Blaze will attempt to do so with pretty much a whole new cast of characters. The U16 baseball team returns just two players —  left-handed pitcher Parker Logan and Dominic Baptista — to a team which was 33-11 and in second place during the 2013 B.C. Junior Premier Baseball League. They lost 7-2 in the championship final to North Shore. “Our goal is to obviously get back to the provincial championship game,” said Langley coach Brad Kemp. “Our mindset is to compete in every game and every situation within the game. Our players will hear the word compete continuously as the season goes on.” Langley begins the 2014 season with a doubleheader on Saturday (April 19) against the Victoria Jr. Eagles. The team’s home opener at McLeod Park is April 26 against the North Delta Jr. Blue Jays. Kemp said the team’s strength is a strong rotation with a deep bullpen and defence at every position. Logan was 6-1 in 11 starts and had a 2.53 earned run average in 2013. He will be joined in the rotations by a couple of pitchers who have a winning pedigree: twins Yi An and Yi Fan Pan, who helped lead Langley to the Little League World Series in Williamsport in 2011. A third member of that team, Cole Cantelon, is also on the Jr. Blaze roster. “At the plate, we have a deep line-up of hitters that will put pressure on the defence,” Kemp said. “The power in the lineup will be provided by the bats of Jesse Unger, Markus Gregson and Dominic Baptista.” Baptista hit .232 with a dozen RBIs in 69 atbats last season. Kemp also singled out Broden Bydeweg and Jaron Jeske as a pair of players the coaching staff expects to take control of the team in the locker room and lead the ball club.

•••• Ryan Braun pitched a complete game as the Langley Blaze evened their record at 1-1 on the season.

Andre Pelletier drove in a pair of runs while Pharand and Dakota Curry had one RBI apiece. Curry’s came on a solo home run.

Welcome to the the driver’s seat

There’s no better time than now to embrace your inner motorcyclist and have the time of your life. Alexandra Straub

Feel the rush of riding on two wheels If you have ever looked longingly upon a motorcycle as it whizzed by, you might have been bitten by the bike bug and didn’t even know it. If you have always dreamed of getting on two wheels but didn’t know how to go about it, you have been bitten by the bike bug. If you are contemplating a perfect time to do it, the answer is now! With spring-like weather manifesting itself and more and more motorcycles appearing on the roads, it’s time to stop dreaming and start doing. But where do you start? How do you go about it and what steps do you need to go through? Over the next few weeks, we will feature a four-part series on motorcycling. It will cover everything from schools, to gear to buying a bike and more. As I said, there’s no better time than now to embrace your inner motorcyclist and have the time of your life.

Take the test In order to get your learner’s license in BC, you will need to take the ICBC Motorcycle Knowledge Test. To attain the handbook that you’ll need to familiarize yourself with, you can either download it from the ICBC website, or visit a branch in person to pick up a hard copy. After you have studied it from cover-to-cover, you’ll need to take and pass the test at an ICBC branch, which will then give you your L. Visit www.icbc.com and type in “motorcycle” into the search bar. That is the easiest way to get you to the pages you’ll need to work with.

‘‘

I absolutely, 100 percent without a doubt recommend going to a good professional school to learn how to ride. Alexandra Straub

’’

After getting your “L” permit There are two steps in acquiring your full motorcycle license. First, you’ll have to pass the Motorcycle Skills Test portion of the process. Then you’ll have your full road test. Riding training I absolutely, 100 per cent without a doubt recommend going to a professional school to learn how to ride. I’m not saying your bff who has selflessly volunteered to teach you everything you need to know about riding isn’t qualified or unfit for the task, but they might not be a “teacher.” Sure they have the skills, but can they communicate effectively the points that you need to be safe? If yes, then go for it. But professional schools have professional teachers. They also know the ICBC system and will teach you above and beyond what you’ll need to execute in order to start riding on your own. And more importantly, to be safe! They will also help build your confidence and try to help you eradicate

bad habits that you may or may not know you are forming. Granted, most courses aren’t cheap. But they’re worth it and so is your safety. Check out regional schools or save up to come to the Lower Mainland. I wouldn’t have done my license any other way. Some schools to check out are: Pacific Riding School, V-Twin Motorcycle School, the Justice Institute of BC, High Gear Motorcycle Training (private lessons) and more. You don’t have to start on the road Many of the top road racers in the world didn’t start on the pavement. They started in the dirt. Why? Because it teaches you how to control a bike in less than ideal traction environments. Also, if you fall, it doesn’t hurt as much! You can certainly get your feet wet when it comes to learning clutch and brake control on a “softer” surface, too. Furthermore, you don’t need a learner’s permit if you are riding off road. When and if you want to transition to the street riding, you’ll need it for that. Check out Popkum Motor Park’s Lessons/Training (www.popkummotorpark.com) program for all ages, as well as the BC Off Road Motorcycle Association’s website (www.bcorma.ca) for upcoming MSF Dirt Bike Schools. Another perk to starting to build your bike confidence on the dirt, training programs aren’t as expensive. So, this is me, the little white angel on your shoulder whispering, “Go on, get on two wheels!” But remember, safety is paramount. Take the test, go to school and thank me later. alexandra.straub@drivewaybc.ca

Question of the week: Safety Tip: The Easter break can be a dangerous time on our roads. If you’ll be travelling, plan for your trip at DriveCanada.ca and be realistic about travel times – weather conditions are unpredictable at this time of year across the province.

Confessions of a Curber I guess you could say I was addicted. Only my drug of choice wasn’t coke or meth. No - it was the thrill of getting away with it all. And the easy cash, of course. Throwing the camper into that last deal was a great marketing idea. And, like last time, I decided to branch out again. There’s so much more than just cars! This time I decided to go with a motorcycle. I purchased it off the internet – I guess you could call it a curber-to-curber transaction. Oh, of course I knew every trick in the book by now. The seller gave me my old story and said that he was the real owner. Did I care? Not a chance. It was a nice Harley. And, it was a steal. I knew I could flip it for more. Why? Because I was a better marketer. But I needed to do it fast. And, I had to make sure I had a buyer that was naive enough not to do a lien check through carproof.com, or the province (bcregistryservices. gov.bc.ca). As usual, I put up a generic, one-line Craigslist ad. With a price like mine, I had a buyer within an hour. I made sure the Harley looked its best. I polished it until it sparkled and filled it with gas. Hey, what’s a few bucks? Then I ran into a small problem. I found out that my seller was the real owner. Wow. But he sold me a vehicle that was about to be repossessed.

Fortunately, he was in such a hurry that he didn’t make me do the transfer – so it was still in his name. No big deal. Bridging* was my friend. I just used his name and hoped my buyer would never ask me for ID. And I was right. The buyer smelled a bargain and took the bait like fish. He thought I was the fool! No lien check, no ID check. Just cash. I was home free, again. And the best part? When the bailiff came for the motorcycle, he didn’t even know my name.

*Bridging – A trick that curbers use to keep their identity secret. Curbers will pay more for a vehicle from an unscrupulous wholesaler or broker if they are not required to immediately put the vehicle in their name. This keeps their name out of the vehicle registry and makes them impossible to locate when deals go bad. Breaking the law is never a concern for them.

“The buyer smelled a bargain. He thought I was the fool!”

For as long as Alexandra Straub recalls, she has loved cars. She can even remember thinking at the age of six, “Only ten more years until I can get my licence!” Born in Zurich, Switzerland to Hungarian parents, she moved to Canada when she was just a baby. Spending her summers in Budapest with her grandparents helped cultivate a strong liking for motorsports. Alexandra can remember watching F1 races with her grandfather, and still does even when she goes to visit. Over a decade ago, Alexandra started her career in the automotive industry. Since then, she has had countless stories and photos published. You can find her work online, in newspapers, magazines and on television. She has hosted “Shifting Gears Automotive TV” and regularly makes appearances on various shows talking about, you guessed it, all things automotive. When she’s not testing out the latest in vehicular goodness, you’ll either find her on a motorcycle (she tests and writes about those, too), on a track or traveling the world. While she considers her “job”  her hobby, Alexandra enjoys other activities that don’t necessarily involve wheels, engines or motors. Growing up on the North Shore of Vancouver, she loves the mountains and the ocean. An avid snowboarder and a wannabe surfer, count on her enjoying the outdoors when she has the chance. And to really help her relax, she scrapbooks. Share your thoughts and requests with Alexandra at alexandra.straub@drivewaybc.ca
