New rail overpasses not enough, Township report warns DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter
A plan to expand the Deltaport container cargo terminal in Ladner will send more trains through Langley than the nearly-completed new overpasses were designed to handle, a report to Township council warns. The Roberts Bank Terminal 2 (RBT2) project proposed by Port Metro Vancouver would build a new three-berth container terminal that would double capacity at the South Delta deepwater port. Once complete, the expanded facility would ship the equivalent of 4.8 million 20-foot-long containers through the Township and Langley City every year, more than double the current annual figure of 1.8 million. That is substantially more than the new overpasses in the Langley area were built to accommodate, warns a report by Township transportation engineering manager Paul Cordeiro. The construction of the new overpasses, part of the Roberts Bank Rail Corridor project, was to handle an planned increase of rail traffic from 1.8 million to 3 million by 2021 as a result of adding a third container ship berth at the Deltaport terminal. The overpasses, are “not intended to mitigate the full impact of RBT2” the Cordeiro report warns. The report says despite a year of lobbying by Township staff and other municipalities along the rail corridor, the impact of the expanded rail traffic is not being studied by Port Metro Vancouver or the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency, the body with the authority to order mitigation measures. The two agencies “have failed to recognize the linkage between the RBT2 Project, which expands container capacity and the resulting increased rail traffic which has significant socio-economic impacts on the local community,” the Cordeiro report says.

Bus loop safety keys outlined BRENDA ANDERSON Times Reporter
Beyond a more prominent police presence at the Logan Avenue transit exchange, there are several keys to improving safety at the Langley City bus loop, TransLink and Langley City council members agree. Installing brighter light bulbs, creating better sight lines, scheduling more frequent trash removal, increasing video surveillance and
actively discouraging graffiti will make using transit safer, they say. What’s less clear, however, is who is to pay for what. Last winter, the City contacted transit police “explaining that there was a large amount of disorder around the bus loop,” said Neil Dubord, chief officer with the transit police service, who made a presentation to City council at its April 7 meeting. After speaking with the

RCMP, and having the area surrounding the bus loop assessed using CPTED — Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design — principles, transit police provided the City with a number of recommendations for improving safety and overall behaviour in and around the bus shelter. Among the items that came out of the CPTED analysis, were recommendations that the site be kept clear of trash and that the City work with
Cascades Casino to install video surveillance along Locke Lane — the alleyway that runs between the casino and the nearly-vacant Rainbow Mall, where the bus loop is located. Prompt clean-up of graffiti and discouraging the defacing of utility boxes by covering them with vinyl wraps, as has been done in other areas of the City, is also among the recommendations.

Gym equipment use leads to suspension DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter

Kirsten Brazier, (right) organizer of last month’s The Sky’s No Limit: Girls Fly Too event accepts the world title award from Women of Aviation Worldwide chair Mireille Goyer for biggest event of its kind to introduce the most girls and women to aviation during Women of Aviation Worldwide Week. A ceremony was held at the Flight Museum on Friday, April 11.
Girls Fly Too garners several awards MONIQUE TAMMINGA Times Reporter
Under perfect skies for flying, The Sky’s No Limit: Girls Fly Too event was celebrated with many world’s best awards at the Canadian Museum of Flight on Friday, April 11. “Thank you to every pilot and volunteer who made Kirsten’s dream possible and thanks to all the women and girls who came out that weekend to try something more than normal,” said Women in Aviation World Wide chair Mireille Goyer on Friday. The event was organized by Langley pilot Kirsten Brazier. The Girls Fly Too event drew more than 6,000 people to the air-
port on March 8 and 9 to celebrate women in aviation. A total of 1,310 girls and women of all ages experienced the magic of their first flight in a small aircraft. Five helicopters and five small planes from the Fraser Blues Formation Demonstration Team provided the introductory flight experience free of charge. A total of 240 volunteers made the huge event such a success, said Brazier. Goyer pointed out that out of the 60,000 pilots in Canada, only 4,000 are women. “It’s easy to see how it is thought of as a male activity,” she said. The Girls Fly Too event won the Global Aviation title for introducing the most girls and women to
aviation during Women of Aviation Worldwide Week. Langley Regional Airport won the world title as most female friendly airport and two local pilots won international recognition: Frank Walcher, as co-winner of 2014 ‘Most Supportive Male Pilot Worldwide’ and George Tecklenborg, as First Runner Up for that title for flying the most girls and women in a two-day span. Walcher tied for most flights with another pilot in Texas. The ceremony was emceed by Langley MLA Mary Polak, with many other dignitaries there, including both Langley mayors as well as dozens of volunteers, including several pilots.
A Langley Secondary School phys ed teacher was suspended without pay for borrowing school gym equipment for his fitness instructor business. The incident was disclosed in a written decision released this month by the British Columbia Commissioner for Teacher Regulation, the new disciplinary body created by the provincial government. It says Murray Charles Howes, an LSS teacher with 19 years experience, was suspended for two days without pay in April of last year for using school facilities and equipment to operate a for-profit fitness instruction service. According to the “consent resolution agreement” posted online by the commissioner, Howe started running his “crossfit” program out of the school weight room in 2003. When the Langley School District ordered Howes to pay rent for the gym starting in 2012, he moved the business, Campus Crossfit, to another location. “As equipment for his new business had not yet arrived, Howes removed equipment that he needed for Campus Crossfit from the School’s weight room,” commissioner Bruce Preston wrote. “He had no authorization to do so.” The equipment included a “digital timer/clock, weight lifting bars and step-up boxes”
which were later returned, with an apology, by Howes during an investigation by the school district. Howes also posted an internet link to his business on the school website contrary to district policy, and did not remove it until he received notice of the investigation. He had also failed to pay rent for one month of using the school gym, finally making payment after the notice was issued. The consent agreement shows Howes was suspended for two days without pay over the gym equipment issue and the link on the school site. In a separate matter, the commissioner reported that Howes was ordered suspended without pay for two weeks because he phoned in sick to attend a crossfit competition in June of last year as a judge, after he was denied leave to attend by the district. The suspension will take effect in September of this year. In the four-page written decision, signed by Howes, he agreed that his conduct “constitutes professional misconduct” and accepts a reprimand. Howes also agreed “not to make any statement orally or in writing which contradicts, disputes or calls into question the terms of this agreement or the admissions made in it.” At press time, Howes had not responded to a Times email request for comment.

New challenge of TWU law school
VICTORIA LAWYER SEEKS SPECIAL MEETING TO REVIEW LAW SOCIETY APPROVAL DAN FER GUSON Tim es Reporter
A Victoria lawyer is confident he will soon have the necessary number of signatures to force a special meeting of the B.C. Law Society to reconsider approval of the Trinity Western University law school. Michael Mulligan told The Times his email request to the society’s 11,000 members to convene a special general meeting went out April 16 and generated hundreds of “overwhelmingly positive” responses in the first day. “The fax machine, email and phone went bananas,” Mulligan said. He expected to soon have the minimum five per cent of society members in good standing required to force the meeting at a future date. On April 11, Law Society of B.C. directors voted 20-6 to recognize Trinity Western University’s planned faith-based law school. Opponents argued the university’s community covenant prohibiting “sexual intimacy that violates the sacredness of marriage between a man and a woman” discriminated on the basis of sexual orientation against gay and lesbian law students and faculty. The law school already has approval from the provincial government to open but the law society controls who can practice as a lawyer in B.C. Society directors, known as benchers, said they could not justify rejecting TWU’s grads, citing a 2001 Supreme Court of Canada ruling in favour of Trinity on religious freedom. “I thought, just as a matter of principle, that the decision that was made was wrong,” Mulligan said. The school’s covenant is discriminatory and contrary to a lawyers oath, Mulligan said. “The granting of approval to an institution founded on an offensive and discriminatory policy will not serve to promote or improve the standard of practice of lawyers in the province,”

Michael Mulligan wants the B.C. Law Society to reconsider approval of the TWU law school. the Mulligan message reads. “The discriminatory principles reflected in the Trinity Western University covenant would appear to be inconsistent with one of the core principles reflected in the Barristers’ and Solicitors’ oath: that barristers and solicitors uphold the rights and freedoms of all persons according to the laws of Canada and British Columbia.” Mulligan goes on to say the approval of the TWU law school “ firmly places us on the wrong side of an important issue of principle.” - with files from Jeff Nagel/Black Press

Council balks at $10K for improved lighting From Page 1
The City has suggested that BC Hydro should pay to remove graffiti from its power poles while TransLink bears responsibility for wrapping a bicycle locker located at the bus shelter. According to council, however, TransLink has indicated it will only agree to install a wrap if it bears paid advertising. Dubord said he would look into that policy, adding there is room for discussion. Meanwhile, BC Hydro won’t remove graffiti unless it is “socially offensive” said Councillor Gayle Martin. “This is a partnership. They should be made to remove the graffiti,” she said. Councillor Jack Arnold remarked, later in the meeting, that Dubord had been “very careful to say ‘partner.’
“I feel like ‘partner’ is we pay and they do the removal.” A motion by Martin that TransLink and BC Hydro be directed to remove graffiti from their property located at the bus loop, passed unanimously. In their report, meanwhile, staff had recommended that council approve a total expenditure of $11,500 to improve security at the bus loop. Of that, $10,000 would be used to upgrade lighting, including increasing the wattage of bulbs lighting the area from 150 watts to 250 watts. “Why is it $10,000 to go up 100 watts?” asked Martin. Councillor Teri James noted the lights at the transit exchange were upgraded three or four years ago and asked what the cost of that improvement had been. City CAO Francis Cheung re-
plied that he could not immediately recall the amount. Councillor Dave Hall asked where the money had come from for the earlier upgrade, adding he is hesitant to keep dipping into the City’s enterprise fund. Hall said that while he believes there is worth in illuminating the area to a greater extent, council should look at doing it as a joint effort and determine whether that is possible before committing the funding. Council agreed to allocate $1,500 to clean-up efforts, including wrapping two Cityowned boxes, but balked at spending a further $10,000 on lighting. A vote to defer the lighting expense passed with only Councillor Rosemary Wallace opposed.
Plan ready to fix parking shortage D AN FERGU SO N Ti m e s Re po r t e r
Township staff have completed design work on a new 43-car parking lot for the Walnut Grove Community Centre. The new lot would go behind the pool, Township recreation facilities and service manager James Marvel advised in an email reply to a resident that was copied to Township council. Marvel was responding to a complaint about a shortage of parking at the facility, located at 8889 Walnut Grove Dr.
next to Walnut Grove Secondary School. “I agree with you that there is a shortage of parking at the centre, particularly at peak times on weekdays around [9 a.m.] and then again once school gets out in the afternoon,” Marvel wrote. The centre has staggered start times of classes and programs to avoid having people arriving and departing all at the same time, and centre staff are asked to park at the “far ends” of the centre parking lot or the school parking
lot, Marvel said. Because there is a shortage of available land close to the centre to create more parking, staff “have concluded that the only reasonable option that we have is to build on a small section of land on the west side of the building, behind the pool” the email said. There are drawbacks to the site, Marvel said, among them the location on the “dark” side of the building near a ravine and the distance people would have to from the lot to the front
entrance. “We are unsure that people would feel comfortable leaving their vehicles around the back of the facility where there are not as many “eyes on the property,” Marvel said. The design work on the 43 parking spaces has been completed and the project has been included in the Township five-year capital plan, Marvel added. Other options, like a multi-level parkade, would be “extremely costly” and were not considered.

A freighter unloads cargo at Deltaport in South Delta on Saturday, April 12. A new plan to expand the port even more will increase train traffic through Langley to higher-than-forecast levels, according to a Township assessment.
port should “retain qualified experts to undertake a full analysis of the proposed RBT2 Project in relation to the anticipated road and rail impacts on the corridor in and around the City of Langley and to identify appropriate measures to effectively address and mitigate such impacts.” Richmond, Surrey and Delta have also called for an impact study before the RBT2 expansion is approved.

As recommended by the Cordeiro report, council voted on April 7 to send a letter to the port, assessment agency and federal minister of transport to express “concern about the lack of recognition or examination of the significant socioeconomic impact of the RBT2 project and increased container rail traffic through Langley.”
The letter calls for a “detailed analysis” of the effect that more than doubling rail traffic will have on vehicle traffic, road safety at rail crossings, “increased train noise, vibration and pollutants” as well as the need for “whistle cessation” along the rail corridor. Similar concerns were raised by the City of Langley in a Nov. 28 report by the acting director of engineering, parks and environment, which said the

Langley Township Councillor Kim Richter is proposing a referendum question on the subject of a tree bylaw. Richter, who backs some interim measures to prevent wholesale logging in Fernridge, wants to hear from voters about their thoughts on the preservation of trees. There are two very distinct viewpoints on this subject. While most people who live in Langley appreciate trees, a significant number do not want any level of government telling them what they can and cannot do on their own property. At the same time, there are others who believe it should be the local government’s business to decide if you can cut a tree down on your property. They point to Surrey, where homeowners must pay for permits, arborist’s reports and contractors to take trees down. The cost is often in the thousands of dollars. Most people on both sides of the tree bylaw issue also know that such bylaws discriminate against homeowners. Developers do not abide by tree bylaws, because they can afford to pay for permits to cut down most trees on properties slated for development. The city of Vancouver has just scrapped a sensible policy allowing property owners to take down one tree per year, simply by buying a low-cost permit. Now they won’t be able to take any trees down at all, unless they are certified as diseased by an arborist. That will cost a lot more. Meanwhile, developers in Vancouver will continue to take down trees, because cities never say no to developers, who will pay whatever it costs. They can simply add those costs onto the price of a home. While a referendum in Langley Township would certainly provide some clarity from voters, and might even help boost voter turnout, it is far from clear that voters would back a tree bylaw. The trouble with the proposal before council last week is that it only applied to Brookswood and Fernridge. When another such bylaw, simply applied to Brookswood. was proposed in 2007, it too was turned down. If Langley Township really wants to preserve trees, any bylaw must apply just as stringently to developers and speculators as it does to homeowners. At the same time, the process needs to be much less costly than it is in Surrey. Otherwise, it becomes very onerous and restrictive for those who simply want to add a little light to their yard, or take down a diseased tree, or a tree too close to their house.

Panhandler risks they
You are stopped in the left-turn lane, waiting for the light to turn green at the intersection ahead. A street person holding a cardboard sign is walking on the raised median beside your vehicle. He is trying to make eye contact, hoping you will give him a few dollars. Do you ignore him and look away? Or do you take pity, roll down your window, give him some coins, and feel good inside that you’ve helped a person less fortunate than yourself? Those who gave money to a left-turn lane panhandler have provided the financial incentive for them to be on the raised median in the middle of a roadway, creating a distraction that may cause a vehicle accident. Panhandlers are at risk of falling into the path of oncoming vehicles travelling at 60 km/h in the lane on the other side of the narrow median. B.C. Motor Vehicle Act s. 182 makes it an offence for pedestrians to be on a roadway if there is a sidewalk on at least one side of the roadway, or to solicit money from occupants of a vehicle. The fine for such an offence is $109, which is significantly less than the $167 fine for distracted driving. Have you wondered why the police have done little if anything to deter these left-turn-lane panhandlers? Perhaps it is because they may be agile and difficult to apprehend. Perhaps it is because they may be transients and unlikely to pay a fine. Perhaps the police are waiting for a serious accident to occur so there is justification for enforcing the law on the panhandlers who receive significant tax-free donations from well-intentioned motorists. — David J.

Focus on property rights by council commended Editor: Re: Brookswood/Fernridge tree cutting conflict. Two tree bylaws were defeated by council on April 14. Thank you Mayor Jack Froese and Councillors Bev Dornan, Bob Long, Charlie Fox and Grant Ward for standing strong on property owners’ rights and defeating the dreaded tree bylaws. Looks like the next hurdle is to overcome Councillor Kim Richter’s notice that at the April 28 council meeting she will propose a motion to call for a referendum on a tree bylaw for the Nov. 15 municipal election. This is a complete misuse of the purpose of referendums. Property owners should attend this meeting to voice disapproval of such wasting of our tax dollars.
I’m dismayed at Councillor David Davis making sure it wouldn’t affect him and other farmers before voting to impose punishing tree bylaws on rural Fernridge private property acreages. Councillors Richter, Michelle Sparrow and Steve Ferguson also voted for the oppressive tree bylaws. Langley Township property owners, beware of certain council members willing to sacrifice your private property rights for votes from the relentless tree lobby protesters. It’s Brookswood/Fernridge getting the attention now, but if they get their foot in the door with a punitive tree bylaw, the rest of Langley will be their next target. There appears to be a strangling effect these days, with overzealous activist pro-
testers organizing against every issue involving growth or energy, and fiercely determined to take away our rights. We desperately need politicians with the courage and forethought to see and project beyond the anti-progress contrarians, because if you react to every protest issue by banning things, there will be no rights or freedoms left to defend. There is also a danger of wildfire spread. That is the biggest danger of the big conifers in Brookswood/Fernridge. Remember the Kelowna fire of 2003, and don’t think it couldn’t happen here. Big dried conifers explode like blowtorch firebombs and with wind, the fire ash spreads it very fast. We have just been lucky so far. Clearing of timber to create additional fire breaks to give firefighters a chance
to control spread is good responsible preparation. You could take another 200 truckloads of timber out of Fernridge and still have a lot more conifer trees per acre than in Brookswood. It’s astounding watching the tree lobby hyperventilate every time some trees are harvested, out there with their cameras like it’s some kind of a crime. Cutting private timber is not unlike a farmer harvesting his crop, and it is under proper permit approvals of the Ministry of Forests, monitored by the BC Wildlife Federation and Ministry of Environment Conservation Field Officer for significant nesting. ROLAND SEGUIN, LANGLEY
Full-time firefighters have much more training Editor: I am writing because I am disappointed with some of the remarks Jim McGregor made in respect to career and paid-call/volunteer firefighters (The Times, April 10). While I agree with many of his opinions, to imply that a career firefighter and a paid call firefighter are the same is an insult to taxpayers who fund such an important service. A profession is defined as “a type of job that requires special education, training, or skill.” Career firefighters are required to have multiple certifications to even apply for the position. Most municipalities require at minimum 30 post-secondary credits or two years trade equivalence in addition. This is not remotely close to the
requirements of a paid-call/volunteer firefighter, which in most cases amounts to an eight-hour CPR course. A full-time firefighter trains at minimum two hours per shift (in addition to all responsibilities of the job) during a 42 hour work week, versus the volunteer who is not required but encouraged to attend one two-hour practice per week. McGregor should be well aware that fires double in size every minute. A full-time staffed fire engine is responding anywhere from seven or more minutes faster than its volunteer counterpart. This has huge implications on fire attack. Where the Township and City once took to protecting surrounding buildings and
Horse pals will be missed Editor: Many of us in the Brookswood area have three old pals. These friends are all standardbred mares, whose role in life has been to produce trotting horses that pull the buggies and drivers around the Cloverdale track. Soon the triangular field under the power lines on 42 Avenue will be vacant. Many of us will miss the whinny greeting we receive, as the mares parade to the fence to receive whatever treats are in store for them. I always provide horse pellets and a lump of sugar for dessert. Soon this delightful pleasure will be over, the field will be empty and the mares will become memories.
The reason is for the good of them all, I suppose. The youngest of the mares is going to be saddle broken and ridden. Her mother is being sent to be the companion of a lonely horse and, “old Ma” as I call her, the patriarch of the brood as well as being the mother of one and the granny of the other, is going to meet her Maker. The sad reason, for this, I understand, is that she has an incurable illness and is in pain. These horse gals will remain in the hearts of many, in joy and sadness. Thanks for the memories. MIKE HARVEY, LANGLEY
containing fires, fully staffed crews are allowed the chance for a direct fire attack and subsequent rescues that were nearly impossible before. This same experience can be applied to any emergency call. You get there sooner, the call can be dramatically different. These men and women are at the halls, ready to respond at a second’s notice. There is no luxury of choosing which call they go on. There is no consideration of letting someone else go to a call that maybe they do not want to go to, are not ready for, can’t emotionally deal with, etc. We pay them to deal with the unknown immediately, without hesitation. When they got hired full time, it went
from a noble hobby of helping in their community when available, to a full-blown career with a responsibility to themselves, their co-workers, and the tax payers. As an active serving police constable I have dealt with career and volunteer members. As people, I do not look at them differently. But I realize that one group is vastly more experienced and trained than the other. “Professionalism and “a profession” are two different things — McGregor nailed it on the head in regards to professionalism as a personality trait. Both groups of firefighters are needed. R. GARRISON, LANGLEY

While various furniture stores have popped up on the Langley landscape over the years, Mcleary’s Canadian Made Quality Furniture & Mattresses continues to serve as a popular landmark business. The one-stop home furnishing shop – stocked full of Canadian-made products – first opened its doors back in 1979 in Langley City. Today, it continues to serve many long-time customers from all over the Fraser Valley and beyond. “We are now seeing the next generation come through and making purchases,” said Rick Blake, the owner of the store, located at 20273 Fraser Hwy. “Our customers tend to come back and are people who enjoy high quality at fair prices.” When it comes to quality, Mcleary’s does a fine job of bringing in high-quality furniture to the sales floor. In fact, many pieces are even made right in the Fraser Valley. “One of the things that really sets us apart is the
fact that we purchase our goods from Canadian sources,” said Blake, who notes that 85 per cent of that is from the Lower Mainland and that all is made from real wood – a real rarity in some of the bigger box stores, nowadays. “There is absolutely no particle board in this store!” In 1993, Mcleary’s became a furniture and mattress store – even the selection of mattresses are Canadian-made and most are manufactured by the Restwell mattress company, located in South Surrey. “We buy from Canadians to support the local economy,” said Blake. When Mcleary’s first opened, the store was known for its pine bedroom suites, dining sets, cool collectibles and waterbeds. Today, the store takes a stylish eye toward helping its customers complete their homes with transitional furniture that has a timeless beauty. However, one will still find a couple water beds on the sales floor – they tend to make a big splash

The Langley’s go green for a sustainable community KRISTYL CLARK Times Contributor
When it comes to going green, the Langleys have stepped up to the plate to help save the Earth. Both the Township and the City have curbside recycling programs in place to reduce the amount of materials going to the landfill – a process that is effective, but does requires extra time and effort from participating residents. Over in the Township, the implementation of the Green Can program – an initiative that encourages residents to keep food scraps and other compostable items out of the landfill by separating them from their garbage – has resulted in 38 per cent less materials going into the total waste stream, with 26 per cent of materials being recycled and 36 per cent being composted, according to Debbie Flemming, the solid waste coordinator for the Township of Langley. While many households have embraced the process, there is still room for improvement, she notes. “Residents are doing a good job and we can reduce the amount of materials going to landfill even more as there is quite a bit of compostable food and soiled paper still going to the land fill.” Those who do participate in sorting their curbside garbage into the appropriate bins, don’t battle to close their overfilled cans approaching pickup day. “If a household faithfully recycles all of the acceptable materials and uses a backyard composter and/or the Green Can for food scraps and soiled paper, there really isn’t much else to put in the garbage,”
said Flemming. “As a result, a number of local municipalities are now collecting garbage bi-weekly.” Shannon Todd Booth, a Langley Township resident, is no stranger to recycling and composting. The ex-”farm kid” grew up in Glen Valley where garbage pickup didn’t happen unless people coordinated it themselves. “My mom was an avid recycler back when recycling was not popular in the least,” she said. “We were always taught to sort our garbage – she’d take half a bag or so to work with her to recycle.” When the Township first introduced the Green Can program, Booth’s family was happy to jump on board. “We were one of the first homes in our neighbourhood to embrace food recycling in Brookswood,” said the mother-of-two “The whole family gets involved – the kids all have their jobs ... for my youngest, Hope, 9, her job is recycling. She takes the cardboard out to the recycling container when it fills up and puts everything else into the blue bins. My oldest daughter’s (Zoe, 13) job is to empty the food waste.” Living in Brookswood, which has been dubbed by many residents, including Booth as ‘raccoon territory,’ a little mess from the crafty critters does arise from time to time. “While I do love it and it’s a small amount of work to do for a big reward, the downside is that food waste comes paying attention to the raccoons in your neighbourhood. I’ve been out there more than once at 5:30 a.m. cleaning up the
food waste with a shovel – despite putting a heavy cement slab on top of the can or a trampoline leg, they still get in there.” Over in the City, Sherry Hollock, isn’t having as easy of a time with the Green Can program. Since the introduction of the kitchen organics program in Langley City, the green waste collection has gone up 44 per cent and total garbage tonnage is down 35 per cent Aside from being messy and inconvenient, it’s costly, she says. “I do understand the need for recycling, but my beef is that they don’t supply us with any disposal units to keep the food scraps and we can’t even use our regular bins because of the raccoons in the area,” she said. “You need a ‘bear-proof’ container to keep them out from making a huge mess.” Hollock suggests that the City supply residents with the tools, such as a heavyduty bin/composting bags, etc. or make a deal with another company to supply them at a discount. “I shouldn’t have to pay for a costly heavy duty garbage can – and who wants to keep their garbage in their garage where it smells?” For Hollock, composting food scraps in her backyard isn’t exactly a practical option. Francis Cheung, the chief administrative officer at the City of Langley says he’s satisfied with the way the program is working so far.

Nominations for the awards were scheduled to close on April 25, but the deadline has now been extended to May 26. The nomination process began on March 25. The awards are sponsored by Langley MP Mark Warawa, Langley Environmental Partners Society (LEPS), Fort Langley National Historic Site and The Times. “We are pleased to invite all Langley residents to join in recognizing the hard work of those who have given their time and energy to promote environmental stewardship in our community,” said the Langley MP. “Environmental stewardship is fundamental to preserving Langley’s communities, forests, rivers and wildlife. If you know of a person, group or a business who has taken the initiative to do something positive for the environment, we’d like to hear about it.” All members of the 2014 Environmental Hero Nominations Committee also voiced their continued support for this initiative. “LEPS highly values the efforts of Langley citizens who champion for environmental sustainability in our community. In order to recognize these efforts, LEPS is pleased to once again be a partner in the Langley Environmental Hero Awards,” says Nichole Marples, executive director at Langley Environmental Partners Society. “The Langley Times is pleased to have been sponsoring the Environmental Hero Awards since their inception, and we are very proud of those who have been honoured in the past. We look forward to some
stellar nominations this year, as we know many Langley residents are deeply involved in protection of the environment,” says Langley Times publisher Dwayne Wiedendorf. “Fort Langley National Historic Site is proud to partner with the Environmental Hero Awards and work for the preservation of our natural heritage,” says Mark Anderson, acting site manager of the Fort Langley National Historic Site. Winners of the Environmental Hero Awards will be presented on July 1t, at Langley’s Canada Day celebrations. Winners will also be commemorated with a plaque and a Heritage Apple Tree planted in their honour at the Fort Langley National Historic Site in the summer of 2014. The Langley Environmental Hero Award began in 2006 as a way to recognize Langley’s grassroots efforts, big and small, to protect the environment.

Time to start weeding out the use of conventional pesticides Wiarton Willie may have correctly predicted a few extra weeks of winter this past Groundhog Day, but with freshly mulched gardens now bursting with a kaleidoscope of the season’s brightest colours, we can all take delight in knowing spring has most definitely sprung. However, green thumbs and lovers of immaculate lawns have likely noticed it’s not just the daffodils, tulips and crocuses popping up in all their glory. So too have those pesky weeds, funguses and other generally unwelcome guests. To rid gardens and lawns of prickly lettuce, crab grass and the like, a squirt here and a spray there of conventional chemical pesticide was once the norm. However, with increasing evidence linking pesticide exposure to serious health and environmental problems, people and, in fact, entire cities are making the move from toxic chemical based insecticides, herbicides and fungicides to more eco-friendly solutions. Over the last few years, over 170 Canadian municipalities – including the City of Langley – have passed bylaws banning the use of cosmetic pesticides. While the City of Langley’s bylaw does not apply to agricultural lands, industrial lands, commercial properties and golf courses, it does apply to all residential properties and city-owned land, including parks and playing fields. “We have a responsibility not only to protect the health of our environment, but also the health of our residents,” said Len Walters, superintendent of parks operations for the City of Langley. “There has been strong support from the public, including landscaping companies, so I think most people are beginning to really understand and value the benefits of going green.” A comprehensive review of pesticide research conducted by the Ontario College of Family Physicians indicated that people who are exposed to pesticides are at a greater risk for cancer, reproductive problems and neurological diseases. The study also showed children are particularly vulnerable to pesticides. Also at risk from pesticides are family pets and many wildlife species, including fish, frogs, earthworms and pollinators, such as bees, which are vital to the world’s food supply. Like any new way of doing things, Walters says there’s “a bit of a learning curve” to going green, but the investment is well worth it. “You have to change your expectations a little,” he said. “It’s not realistic to expect a perfect, totally weed-free lawn. However, I always remind people that some weeds are actually good for your lawn. Clover, for example, provides nitrogen, which is a natural fertilizer. When it comes to unwanted weeds, cultural controls like aeration, topdressing, over-seeding and proper irrigation practices really help. I also recommend applying mulch at the base of shrubs and trees because it acts as a weed suppressant and helps with water retention.” Walters’ parks staff use insecticidal soap for a variety of garden pests. Other eco-friendly solutions include:
Like other municipalities, under the City of Langley’s pesticide bylaw, conventional pesticides may be applied by a provincially certified pesticide applicator in the case of an infestation that poses an immediate risk of damage to property or significant financial loss. “It’s very possible to have a beautiful, chemicalfree lawn and garden,” said Walters. “The first and most important step in going green is to research the many alternatives to pesticide use.” For a handy list of non-toxic, environmentally friendly products; helpful environment friendly gardening tips; and information on pesticide disposal, visit the “Pesticide Use” tab under the “Residents” heading at city.langley.bc.ca.

Music and Mayhem
PAIR OF GENERAL MAYHEM BANDMATES SET TO REUNITE AT BROOKSWOOD SECONDARY B REN D A AND E R SO N Ti me s Re po r t e r
They started out 14 years ago as a trio of teenage boys, bashing away on guitars and drums in the courtyard of Brookswood Secondary, trying to find their sound. On Saturday, April 26, two of General Mayhem’s three original members will bring their act full circle when they return to the Langley high school as professional musicians, to play during BSS’s 40th anniversary celebration. In its heyday General Mayhem performed a mix of covers and original tunes — featuring “crunchy power chords and huge drums” — mostly in front of classmates and friends. “It was a lot of grunge, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Pearl Jam,” recalled Daniel Wesley, who played lead guitar and sang in the band alongside bassist, Jeremy Allingham. It was big and it was loud, the two men recall with a chuckle. “We’ve maybe stemmed that a little,” said Wesley, whose alternative rock is getting airplay on radio stations across Canada. “When you’re young like that, you play what you know,” he said. “It was fun. It gave us a start of what it’s like to write and record and book shows.” Fast forward nearly a decade and a half, and what you have now, is a couple guys in their 30s, enjoying productive music careers and the early days of fatherhood. Wesley has found success in a solo career, while Allingham plays lead guitar for Factories and Alleyways and is about to release his debut solo album. But, truth be told, they still get a bit nostalgic for the old days. Since their former drummer declined to join them, the musicians will reunite as an acoustic duo during Brookswood Secondary’s 40th anniversary celebrations, bringing their guitars to the school theatre at 3 p.m. and taking their former classmates on a bit of a journey back to 2001. Aside from picking up the instruments for “1 a.m. strums” at parties over the years, the musicians haven’t performed together in more than a decade. The plan is to play some original General Mayhem tunes, maybe a few covers and a little something from the catalogues of what they do now. “We still need to get together and rehearse this baby,” laughed Wesley. “Maybe we could add a little bit of harmonizing and maybe a couple little lead guitar parts, who knows. “We’ll tinker away, and come up with something good, I’m pretty sure.” “The thing that made this percolate for us and even just consider it is, once every month or so, we’d have a good party and one of us grabs a guitar and then the other one grabs their guitar,” said Allingham.
B R E ND A N KILOH P HOT OGR A P HY
High school bandmates Jeremy Allingham, left, and Daniel Wesley, right, are returning to Brookswood Secondary this weekend as the school celebrates its 40th anniversary. Beginning at 3 p.m. the two men will perform songs from their days in the band General Mayhem, as well as a few selections from their respective music careers.
Brookswood celebrates 40 years
rookswood School was built in 1973-74, beginning as a junior high before eventually becoming a full secondary school and graduating its first class in 1986. To celebrate the last 40 years, the school is hosting an open house for alumni, former teachers and the community. This event will be April 26, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Highlights include: nostalgic displays, a meet n’ greet of former teachers, theatre productions, an alumni basketball tournament, tours, performances by alumni bands and the school’s current jazz bands. Brookswood Secondary is located at 20902 37A Ave. Call 604-530-2141 for more information. Right away, the musicians would start getting requests from friends for old General Mayhem tunes. One song would lead to another and a sense of nostalgia would settle over the party. “We’d look at each other, like, ‘We could do this, it’s kind of fun,’” said Allingham. But time marches on, and for both men, that has meant starting families of their
own. “It’s been a blast, becoming a dad and sharing that experience with Jer,” said Wesley, whose son, Finn, is 13 months old. “It’s nice to share the experience with a lifelong friend. We’re happier than we’ve ever been.” Initially, Allingham feared that becoming a parent would mean he wouldn’t be able to devote much time to his music.
But all it’s done has changed how loud and where he plays. Instead of heading off to jam with buddies, he finds himself at some point every day, strumming his guitar in front of his four-month-old daughter, Maliyah’s crib. “I’ve found (parenthood) has helped me focus more. Spare moments are so rare,” said Allingham. “There’s so much inspiration in having a child — all the anxiety that comes with it and the joy in unexpected moments, finds its way into the music.” ••• The Brookswood anniversary party offered the perfect opportunity for a General Mayhem reunion show, but it lands on a busy day for Allingham. He also has a party scheduled on the same date as the reunion, with the release of his debut solo album — a folk record titled, That One Song — set for Saturday night at the Biltmore Cabaret on Kingsway. Wesley, meanwhile, will perform his next show for Music Heals, on May 22 at the Imperial in Vancouver.

PRESENTS Law doesnâ€™t tolerate bullying bosses B R ENDA ANDER SON L an gley Tim es
Clockwise from top left: James Aalhus with Princeton; Aisley Komatsu-Trehearne with Lucy; Abby Wiens as Gary Coleman and Elsa Fawkes with Ricky. The WGSS musical theatre department presents Avenue Q School Edition, April 24 to May 3 at the high school on Walnut Grove Drive.
Bosses who harass, bully or verbally abuse their employees can be on the hook for big bucks. Take the ground-breaking decision of the BC Court of Appeal in the â€œmillion-dollar Mountieâ€? case. The court upheld a damage award of just under $1 million for Nancy S., an RCMP officer who was the target of angry outbursts and cutting comments by her supervisor. Being mistreated over an extended period of time led to a deep depression which effectively ended her career. She had become part of a close-knit RCMP community of some 20 members and received excellent evaluations from her first two commanding officers. Her troubles began a few months after staff Sergeant S. became the officer in charge of her detachment. Over the next two years, she was subjected to harassing conduct by the staff Sergeant, which included â€œangry outburstsâ€? and â€œintemperate, and at times, unreasonable behaviour.â€? He made negative comments about her pregnancy leave and her abilities, put her down in front of co-workers, and used harsh language with her.
the damages. Since that case, thereâ€™s been a flurry of media reports on sexual and harassment claims by other female members of the RCMP, some of which are on their way to court. But what gets lost in the discussion is that itâ€™s not about the RCMP â€“ itâ€™s about the fact that harassment (sexual or otherwise) and bullying isnâ€™t tolerated in the workplace, regardless who the employer is. The law imposes a duty on employers to provide a workplace environment free of harassment and bullying. Depending on the specific situation, failure to do so may allow affected employees to seek redress before human rights tribunals (e.g., a fast food worker got $36,000 after eight months of harassment from coworkers), claim workersâ€™ compensation, or seek compensation in court. Bottom line? Bosses who are overly aggressive or pursue hostile management styles risk liability if an employee is hurt and their ability to earn a living suffers as a result.
Bullying behaviour by bosses can also trigger claims of â€œconstructive dismissal.â€? This refers to situations where intolerable working conditions or a demotion amount to legal justification for the employee to quit and get compensation for wrongful dismissal. In several cases, employees The court decided the staff Sergeantâ€™s harassing have received damages after quitting because of conduct created â€œthe troubled work environment severe workplace bullying. that [she] experienced.â€?

After two years of this, Nancy had become quite ill. She lost 20 pounds, was unable to sleep or eat, and had become clinically depressed. Her doctor advised her to go on sick leave, and she eventually accepted a medical discharge.
The court concluded that the tort or civil wrong of negligent infliction of mental suffering or harm had been established. The provincial government (responsible for her bossâ€™ employment in BC) was liable for his conduct and payment of

â€œIâ€™m actually a little bit happy that I didnâ€™t get a puppet,â€? she admitted. After practising with one of the felt and foam creations for a bit, â€œI realized how much arm strength I donâ€™t have,â€? she laughed. Besides being â€œquite the arm workout,â€? operating the puppets takes a certain level of concentration, beyond just knowing your lines, say the actors. â€œThe way the hand wants to go, the puppet would always be looking sideways,â€? said Elsa Fawkes, whose double role includes Ricky and Trekkie Monster. The actors also have to find a way to play the role without drawing attention to themselves. Itâ€™s a bit counter-intuitive, said Aisley Komatsu-Trehearne, who plays/operates Lucy, the femme fatale who comes between Princeton and his love interest, Kate Monster. â€œWhen you act, you want to display emotion, but you have to channel that emotion into a puppet.â€? Right from the beginning of rehearsals back in September, the students knew they had something special. â€œWeâ€™re excited,â€? said Fawkes. â€œItâ€™s tough, but we knew, if we get it, itâ€™s going to be awesome.â€? â€œPeople are going to go away thinking, â€˜I canâ€™t believe a high school did that,â€™â€? said Komatsu-Trehearne The show also features a seven-member pit orchestra comprised of music students in different grades, under the direction of Shane Fawkes, musical director and music teacher. â€œThey have been working really hard and are a wonderful addition to our production,â€? said Hendricks. Avenue Q School Edition runs from April 24-26 and May 1-3. Shows begin at 7 p.m. with 2 p.m. matinees on April 26 and May 3. Admission is $12 adults; $10 seniors and students.

Trio boards Express for title run
GARY AHUJA Times Sports
Celebrating the Fred Page Cup — which is presented to the playoff champions of the B.C. Hockey League — is always special. But when the Coquitlam Express hoisted the Cup on Tuesday night, it was a little extra special for Brendan Lamont. After all, this was the third team the 19-year-old from Langley was playing on this season alone. “Being traded that many times in a season can be tough, but it all worked out in the end,” he said on Wednesday afternoon, the day after the underdog Express completed a sweep of the Vernon Vipers in the BCHL final with a 4-3 game four victory on Coquitlam’s home ice at the Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex. This is Lamont’s third year in the league. He spent the first two seasons in Merritt and began this year with Trail, was traded to Penticton, and then finally to Coquitlam. This was the fourth straight higher-seed the Express steamrolled in the post-season as they have won 14 of 19 playoff games. Coquitlam, the third seed in the Mainland Division, began their improbable playoff run with a six-game victory over the Prince George Spruce Kings. They then knocked off the top team in the BCHL regular season, the Langley Rivermen, also in six games. This is the second straight year Langley has been ousted by the eventual league champions. What followed was something new in the league — a round robin tournament between the three division winners with the top two advancing to square off in a best-of-seven series to determine the Fred Page Cup champions. The Vipers, the Interior
Division champs, and the Express edged out the Island Division-winning Victoria Grizzlies to advance to the league finals. Lamont said his team knew they underachieved during the regular season — they had 59 points in 58 games and were tied for ninth out of the 16 teams — but knew they had something special in the post-season, especially after going up 2-0 on the Rivermen in the second round. “I think when we got the lead on Langley … that really gave us a confidence boost since they were the top team in the league,” he said. “I felt like in the playoffs, we came together and that confidence really helped us persevere.” Lamont was one of three Langley Minor Hockey Association alums on the team, as he was joined by a pair of 18-year-old BCHL rookies, forward Daniell Lange and defenceman Anthony Gardner. Lamont and Lange played in Langley throughout their minor hockey days while Gardner joined the association at the peewee level. The team is also coached by Barry Wolff, who served as an assistant head coach to Harvey Smyl when the Chiefs played in Langley from 2006 to 2011. For Lange, it has been impeccable timing: he played last season with the Richmond Sockeyes and helped the team win a bevy of trophies: the Pacific Junior Hockey League championship, the Cyclone Taylor Cup (provincial championship) and the Keystone Cup (western Canadian championship) in his one and only season of junior B hockey. And in his first crack at the junior A level, he was able to hoist the Fred Page Cup. “I don’t think I have ever been this lucky or proud
of both teams that I have been on,” he said. “Both teams were great groups of guys.” This year has been an adjustment of Lange. At all his previous stops, Lange has been counted on as a dynamic offensive force. Last year he scored 34 goals and 53 points in 44 regular games and he led the league in goals. He added another 14 goals and 31 points in 23 post-season games. The season before, Lange had 23 points and 51 points in 47 games while playing in the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League with the Valley West Hawks. This season, he had eight goals and 11 points in 51 games and then a pair of assists in 19 playoff games. So it has been a bit of an adjustment in his first year at the junior A level. “It is a lot faster than every other league I have been in,” he admitted. “You try to keep your head up at all times.” Lange said he just tried to stay positive. “Sometimes it was hard, but then I realized I had a lot to learn from the guys,” he said. “They have really helped me a lot and they have showed me what to do and how to be a better player.” Lange, a five-foot-11, 180-pound forward still has two seasons of junior eligibility. Lamont, who can play one more season of junior, said his role has changed over the years depending on what the team needs, but his numbers have remained about the same: in 172 career BCHL games, he has 20 goals and 60 points. With the Express, that means the five-foot-nine, 175-pound forward has played an energy role for the team. He has added two goals and seven points in Coquitlam’s post-season run.

Coquitlam Express’ Brendan Lamont (photo above, #16) and Daniell Lange (#11) along with another former Langley Minor Hockey Association product, Anthony Gardner, helped the Express capture the Fred Page Cup as the BCHL champions. Gardner, a six-foot-one 185-pound defenceman, has played in just two games this post-season — but none since the Express series against Langley — after playing in 50 games during the season and finishing with nine assists. “It is certainly hard,” he admitted about playing almost the entire regular season before being forced to the press box in the playoffs. “Just try to think positive, train as much as possible and just be ready because you never know when you are going to get an opportunity.” Gardner admitted to being nervous during the series clinching victory, which saw a Vernon goal waived off with 0.4 seconds Continued Page 22

TOURNAMENT OF HOPE
Many people believe they need to take magnesium supplements for their bones as well as symptoms such as fatigue, muscle aches and insomnia. The truth is that there is no evidence to support these claims and true magnesium deficiency is uncommon. When it does happen, it’s usually older people or those with absorption issues such as celiac disease or other digestive problems, alcoholism or kidney disease. To be sure, have your blood checked. Osteoporosis continues to be a risk for some people but there are many things that can be done to reduce this risk. Daily weight-bearing exercise goes a long way (for example, walking). Calcium is an essential mineral for bone production – 1000mg for those 50 and under and 1200mg over 50. Finally, vitamin D; your skin manufactures vitamin D with sun exposure. Look to supplements only to make up the difference you lack from diet or sun. Normally, your body can make all the vitamin D it requires by exposing the skin of the face, arms, legs or back to the sun for five to 30 minutes, twice weekly. Things that can interfere with this process are wearing
sunscreen, your distance from the equator (Canada!), air quality (smog can reduce vitamin D production) and skin colour (dark skin makes less vitamin D). If you feel you need BOB SANGHA to supplement, it’s generally Pharmacist, BSc recommended that you take no more than 1000 iu daily. The recent news about vitamin D has spawned all kinds of claims for its powers: Supposedly it can all but cure cancer, depression, arthritis and a host of other conditions. However, a recent study from France is pointing out that the low vitamin D levels associated with some of these conditions may be due to them, not the cause of them! There is ongoing research to elicit more details on the relationship, but in the meantime keep any doses you take in the recommended ranges only. Just how much calcium, vitamin D or other vitamins and minerals should you be taking on a day-to-day basis? Talk to our pharmacists for some sound advice that will help you be healthy and avoid overdose pitfalls.

Perfect weekend for Blaze A four-for-four weekend pushed the Langley Blaze win streak to five games and has the U18 Premier Baseball League squad sitting at 5-1 to start the season. The Blaze swept a pair of doubleheaders at McLeod Park, edging the Victoria Mariners 2-1 and 3-2 on Saturday before beating the Coquitlam Reds 2-0 and 9-2 on Sunday to wrap up a perfect weekend. The first game saw Kyle Ross throw a complete game two-hitter. Victoria had opened the scoring in the fifth inning with an unearned run, but Langley struck back for a pair in the bottom of the sixth with a tworun RBI single from Austin MacDonald. In the rematch, Victoria led 2-0 going into the bottom of the seventh inning and the Blaze were down to their final two outs. But Dakota Curry tied the game with a tworun single and then scored the winning run himself when Victoria committed its third error of the game. Jordan Atkinson picked up the win, coming on in relief in the sixth inning. Connor Chorpita’s double in the sixth inning scored two runs and broke a scoreless
