Arson ‘targets’ Aldergrove home By MONIQUE TAMMINGA Aldergrove Star

An Aldergrove home was the scene of an arson on Sunday morning, said police. Around 4 a.m., a passerby called 911 after seeing the side of a home on fire in the 2500 block of 272 Street. “When we arrived the siding was burning,” said Township assistant fire chief Bruce Ferguson. “Our axes and fire hoses woke up the people inside.”

Langley RCMP have been investigating and said there isn’t reason for alarm after the suspicious fire. “This wasn’t a random act, it was targeted to this home,” said Cpl. Ali Mirza. Police have their sights on two males as possible suspects in the blaze. The investigation is active and ongoing, said Mirza. The residents of the home, who managed to escape without injury, told police they don’t know anyone who

would target them. Around $10,000 damage was done to the home. Fire investigators had taped off the house and were investigating Sunday. Police are still hoping to speak to anyone who witnessed anything suspicious in and around the time of the fire. Anyone with information that could help police is asked to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200. To remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

More than 130 people filled the Aldergrove Legion Hall on Monday, to hear the Langley-Aldergrove federal election candidates speak. Three party candidates from the NDP, Greens and Liberals were questioned primarily on senior citizen issues, although the Libertarian and Conservative candidates were conspicuously absent from the event. The meeting was co-hosted by a number of local seniors’ organizations, and moderated by retired Langley Times editor Frank Bucholtz. Incumbent Conservative candidate Mark Warawa was unable to attend due to other commitments, according to Bucholtz, but there was no explanation for Libertarian Lauren Southern’s absence. Liberal hopeful Leon Jensen opened the proceedings by stating that, “The present government has not been honest and Canada’s international reputation is not what it used to be.” Noting that he had recently retired after 40 years service with the military, Jensen said, “”Justin Trudeau is just what we need.” Green hopeful Simmi Dhillon said “Langley is where I chose to raise a family nine years ago,” and while she had seen many changes in that time here she hoped to see the community grow in a positive fashion.

NDP hopeful Margot Sangster described herself as an “advocate for seniors to stay in their homes as long as possible” and for providing long-term care services when that time of life comes. “(NDP leader Thomas) Mulcair is the man we can trust to undo the damage (Prime Minister Stephen) Harper and the Liberals have done.” All three candidates pledged to reinstate 65 as the age of retirement for full pension benefits and to expand the Canada Pension Plan to help the more than 11,700 seniors in Langley, who on average live on $24,000 a year in pensions. Housing and health care were among the most important issues cited by those who stepped up to the microphone to question the candidates. Dhillon said the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation “needs to do more, provide access to grants, and the local community, builders need to contribute more to infrastructure and adaptable housing.” Noting that “too many people are priced out of home ownership,” Jensen said a Liberal government would provide $125 million in tax incentives to finance construction of new housing.” “Canada needs a bill asserting housing as a right,”

Three Langley-Aldergrove candidates promise ‘change FROM FRONT:

KURT LANGMANN PHOTO

Federal election candidates Margot Sangster (NDP), Simmi Dhillon (Green) and Leon Jensen (Liberal) took questions from the public at a two-hour all-candidates meeting Monday, Oct. 5 at the Aldergrove Legion. Retired Langley Times editor Frank Bucholtz (at left) moderated the meeting and Libertarian Lauren Southern and Conservative Mark Warawa were no-shows.

asserted Sangster, promising that an NDP government would provide $2 billion for housing co-ops by 2020. All three agreed that Canada needs a new health care strategy to replace the Romanow Commission’s Health Accord, which expired in 2014. In response to a question about changing the present “First-past-thepost” electoral system, all three expressed a desire for a more representative system. Jensen pointed out that, “60 per cent of the 60 per cent who voted

chose our previous MP. That’s 36 per cent who voted for our representative who doesn’t have the decency to show up at this meeting.” On the issue of the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion, the candidates questioned the validity of the regulatory processes, although Dhillon went a bit further, saying, “Kinder Morgan is not coming through here.” One questioner noted that unless voters “vote together for a different government we’ll see the same MP elected again. I like all three of you but who do I vote for, give me

reasons why I should vote for you.” Dhillon replied that “the Greens are the only party that mandates that we speak for you, the constituents.” Sangster said she has a track record of “working hard for over 30 years, I’m educated and experienced, and Mulcair is the best leader. The NDP has not been given the opportunity to govern this country; give us a shot.” Jensen said the Liberals “will not vote against the Charter of Rights... and we will keep our promises. Look and see who will make real change.”

Zoo receives conservation award By KURT LANGMANN Aldergrove Star

Aldergrove’s Greater Vancouver Zoo has received the Peter Karsten Conservation Award from Canada’s Accredited Zoos and Aquariums (CAZA), in acknowledgement of its conservation efforts for the Western Painted Turtles. This award recognizes an individual or institutional achievement in the field of conservation. Applications are encouraged for projects in the fields of conservation education, “green” operations, habitat preservation, species restoration or support for biodiversity. For the past three years the Greater Vancouver Zoo and its partners have established a successful “head start” program with the goal of rearing and releasing individuals with an increased chance of survival, increasing population numbers and creating self-sustaining populations at historical and restored sites

“There is very little known about hatchling and juvenile turtle behaviours, movements and habitat needs, and this data will help to inform both this species’ conservation as well as many related species and turtles in general,” says Andrea Gielens , wildlife biologist. Gielens is a respected biologist who has worked with the zoo’s animal care department for the past 10 years, on both the endangered Oregon Spotted Frogs and Western Painted Turtles conservation projects. According to the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC), the Pacific Coast population of the Western Painted Turtle is listed as endangered, while the Intermountain - Rocky Mountain population is listed as special concern.

The Langleys are in the “middle of the pack” when compared to other Metro municipal crime rates, the officer in charge of the Langley RCMP detachment, Supt. Murray Power, said Monday. Power was responding to questions from Township council after presenting a year-to-date update of criminal activity. Overall, he said, the numbers for Langley Township and Langley City are going down, with some exceptions like mail theft, auto theft and theft from businesses. A review of Langley violent crime incidents by RCMP analysts found “nothing significant … nothing that is serial in nature.” Is it safe to walk the streets of Langley City, is it safe to walk the streets of Langley Township?” Power said. “It is.” Residents are unlikely to be “accosted by a

Murray Power, told Township council that Langley is in the “middle of the pack” when compared to other Metro municipal crime rates. stranger walking down the streets,” Power said. Property theft remains a “frustrating” problem, however, he said. Mail theft in the Langleys is up 90 per cent from the previous year, but Power said the number of incidents has begun to subside as Canada Post replaces

community mail boxes with new, sturdier models that are harder to steal from. “I have to give some kudos to Canada Post,” Power said. Auto theft is up 34 per cent and theft from autos is up 26 per cent, the result of an “alarming” regional crime wave across the entire Lower Mainland, Power said. “They’re stealing cars to go from community to community to commit crimes.” There has also been a recent spike in business break-and-enters, a trend that Power thinks isn’t the work of the usual Langley-based suspects. “I have a suspicion that we have visitors,” Power said. Home invasions are down 45 per cent from the previous year and down by 14 per cent over the last five years. “That’s a direct result of law enforcement by police putting certain people away for significant periods of times,” Power said.

On Saturday, Oct. 3, Muriel Arnason Library and the Township of Langley celebrated their 12th annual Diwali, or Festival of Lights. About 550 people participated in this colourful event and enjoyed henna art, crafts, face painting, Indian classical dance and music, displays and food, in a festive atmosphere. Arno Kamolika, a Bharatanatyam dancer (at left) from Mandala Arts and Culture, performed a beautiful Indian classical dance. Children painted diyas or clay lamps, created lanterns, and did a variety of crafts. SUBMITTED PHOTO

Langley was a ‘sea of orange’ By MONIQUE TAMMINGA Aldergrove Star

It was a sea of orange last Wednesday, as students, teachers and administrators donned the bright coloured shirts to honour the children who survived Indian residential school and remember those who didn’t on Sept. 30. Assemblies were held, and members of the Kwantlen First Nation spoke to students at several schools across the district explaining about what happened at residential schools and the reconciliation process underway. Former Langley school trustee

Cecelia Reekie, whose own father is a survivor of residential school, spoke out last year, hoping that every school in Langley would embrace Orange Shirt Day which includes the motto: “every child matters.” She dreamed of seeing a sea of orange in Langley. “I raise my hands to all who took part in Orange Shirt Day, we will journey together to reconciliation,” Reekie wrote in a tweet on Wednesday. Reekie took part in traditional drumming and singing at an assembly at Glenwood Elementary stu-

dents and then spoke to the large group of students. That school was a sea of orange, as were almost every other elementary, middle and secondary school in Langley. Dozens of pictures can be found on Twitter at #orangesd35 On Thursday, Oct. 8, the Aboriginal Enhancement Agreement will be signed at the Kwantlen Community Centre. Langley will be the 111th school district to sign the historic agreement that will incorporate Aboriginal culture and history into the new B.C. curriculum.

It is the scariest kind of real-life Halloween story, but this one has a happy ending. A few years ago, a little girl was out trick or treating in Langley when the unthinkable happened: her costume came into contact with a jack-o-lantern and the candle inside set the material on fire. She was only five years old, but when the flames started consuming her clothes, the child knew exactly what to do: she stopped immediately, dropped to the ground, covered her face with her hands, and rolled over and over to put out the flames. While she had quite the scare, the young girl wasn’t injured, thanks to information she learned and practiced with Township of Langley firefighters. The stop, drop, and roll technique is taught to local school children by the Fire Department, along with other fire safety information, and Public Fire and Life Safety Educator Krista Barton said it is really rewarding to hear children are putting the potentially life-saving lessons to use. “It only takes a few seconds to make a huge difference,” said Barton, who encourages parents to review the procedure with their kids and ensure they practice. “It is how they remember and learn,” she said, noting that children as young as three can benefit from fire safety lessons, such as how to recognize and respond to smoke alarms. And with Halloween fast approaching, now is the time to take precautions and think about safety, to keep everyone in the family free from harm. “Halloween should be spooky fun, not dangerous,”

Editor: For the past several months, we have been honoured to serve as community representatives on the Mayor’s Standing Committee on Public Engagement. As residents of the Township of Langley with a passion for public participation, we are pleased for the opportunity to help enhance two-way communication between the Township and residents during planning and development processes. When it comes to development in our communities, we believe the Township has done a great job in engaging its citizens in some decision-making processes. Some decision-making processes have shown there is still room to learn and grow. That is why it is so important that residents get involved in the upcoming Open Houses on Public Engagement, being held by the Committee on October 20, 22, and 24. This is your opportunity to have your say. Tell us how you would like to be heard in regards to managing growth and developing neighbourhoods. How do you like to express your opinion? Do you like face-to-face interaction or prefer to engage digitally? What works for you? Everyone has a different viewpoint, and the committee needs to hear from as many people as possible to reach the most effective conclusions. Input collected from the open houses and other committee activities will be used to inform a recommendation to council on how to enhance public engagement during development and planning processes. Life can be hectic, but we hope you take the time to attend one of the events and give us your input. Drop in at your convenience and stay as long as you like. These Open Houses will be fun and interactive – and promise to be unlike any other public drop-in you’ve been to. Every opinion counts, and by dropping in, expressing your views, and having some fun, you can help shape the way the Township grows.

Editor: My mom was born in Russia into a Mennonite culture. During the civil war period from about 1918-1929 many of the pacifist Mennonites formed a self-defense militia against government forces to avoid getting slaughtered. Mom’s family left Russia in 1929 for fear of reprisals. José Figueroa is still living in the Walnut Grove Lutheran Church because of a deportation warrant issued in October 2013, by the Canada Border Services Agency for being a terrorist. On July 10, 2014 a federal court judge declared José was not a terrorist and demanded that Citizenship and Immigration Canada restart his permanent resident application. A call to a friend who works at CIC confirmed that invariably they comply with the federal court orders. A call to CBSA confirmed that in all cases they cancel a deportation order with such a federal court order. But neither was done. If José is a terrorist, then so were many Mennonites. A meeting with Mark Warawa, my local Conservative member of Parliament, himself of Mennonite heritage, proved disappointing. Officially, Mark is on record as supporting José, but said that it’s a private matter and his meetings with others in government on the case are secret. Actually, it’s everybody’s business if the process of government is not just or democratic. There actually is an official terrorist list passed by Parliament. The intent is that CBSA use it, but they don’t. José’s name is not related to this list in any way. Individual agents pass judgment as they please with Gestapo-like powers. I’m inherently non-partisan. Political labels mean nothing. It’s the current thinking of leadership that counts. Justin Trudeau (Liberal), Tom Mulcair (NDP), Elizabeth May (Green) all warned about this loss of democracy and lack of oversight with present Conservative policies on security. My own fear is that most Conservative policies are tilted in favour of the wealthy, powerful, and concentrated government leadership. This is flavouring government departments with the resulting loss of democracy. Ben Weins, Langley

Age-friendly Task Force. Guest speakers and panelists featured at the 2015 Forum include: Isobel Mackenzie – B.C.’s Seniors Advocate; Mike Harcourt – Age Well; Roslyn Kunin – Roslyn Kunin and Associates; Noha Sedkey – City Spaces; Tim Bontkes – Infinity Properties; Rhonda Latreille – Age Friendly Business Academy; and Andy Warkentin – Quadra Homes. The panel discussion will be moderated by retired Langley Times editor Frank Bucholtz. As well, a new business attraction promotional video showcasing the Township of Langley’s many business advantages and opportunities will be launched. The video features business owners and managers who share their success stories and highlight the benefits of working within the Township.

with federal health transfers to rise six per cent each year into the future. The future for Martin’s government lasted only two years, as his minority was replaced with one led by Harper. These galloping increases continued until the Conservative majority of 2011, after which thenfinance minister Jim Flaherty came to Victoria to inform provincial finance ministers of the new plan. (I was there, and the joke was that this was as far from Ottawa as Flaherty could get without leaving Canada.) The six-per-cent increases, by that time triple inflation, would continue for another five years. Starting in 2017-18, increases would be tied to economic growth, with a minimum hike of three per cent, still well ahead of today’s inflation. That remains the Conservative plan today. All provinces east of Saskatchewan pitched a fit. Manitoba’s NDP finance minister termed it “un-Canadian.” Lefties immediately called it a cut, to which Flaherty replied that transfers to provinces would rise from $30 billion to $38 billion in 2018-

19, and continue to grow after that. In B.C., then-finance minister Kevin Falcon praised the longterm approach, acknowledging that health spending was ballooning to half of the provincial budget and had to be brought under control as baby boomers start to retire. B.C. has largely accomplished that, with spending increases below three per cent and health care outcomes that continue to lead the country. As the current election campaign turns into the home stretch, Statistics Canada has announced a milestone. For the first time in history, the number of seniors exceeds number of children. This demographic shift is inexorable, predictable and must be addressed by whoever wins the Oct. 19 federal election. NDP leader Thomas Mulcair is on record that he will scrap the Conservative formula for growthbased increases that he pretends are cuts, returning to six per cent every year while balancing the budget. Little detail has been provided on how this would be done. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau announced in Surrey last week that he will ante up an extra $3 billion over four years for health care, and “sit down with the provinces immediately” to renegotiate, a rerun of Paul Martin’s political theatre.

FORT LANGLEY

A brief history of Canada’s health spending The federal budget document began with an ominous warning about deep cuts. Social programs, justice and corrections would be spared as much as possible, but no department would escape the knife. The stark truth was revealed in a table of figures. Health care spending, the core of the Canadian state, was cut by 3.8 per cent in just the first year of the fiscal plan, as population and need continued to grow. No, this is not from the Stephen Harper budget of April 2015, or any other in the last decade. It’s from the Jean Chretien budget of 1995, more than 20 years ago. That’s the last time anyone actually cut health care spending. But wait, you may say. Didn’t I hear that Harper has slashed health care spending by $30 billion? Yes, you probably did hear the biggest, most brazen lie of this election campaign, either from the government unions that advertised it or the politicians who parrot it. If health care really is everyone’s high-priority issue, as pollsters have long assured us, voters should at least know the facts. After cutting provincial health and social services transfers for years to end the string of operating deficits that began under Pierre Trudeau and continued under Brian Mulroney, Liberal finance minister Paul Martin rose briefly to the top job. In 2004, Martin staged meetings with premiers, emerging with what was billed as “a fix for a generation,”

16 Avenue corridor study nearing completion ies have been done and improvements made to 16 Avenue by the Township, TransLink, and ICBC to increase safety on the road. Two years ago, the current 16 Avenue Corridor Study was initiated to improve the safety of the entire corridor and address traffic demands now and into the future. The report is looking at land uses and issues, the functional use of the corridor, its intersection configurations, current traffic and safety conditions, and conditions that are anticipated over the next 20 years. Preliminary results and recommendations are developing from the study, which should be concluded within a couple of months, Cordeiro said. The study suggests short term improvements to be done over the next five years would include improving sightlines through additional signage and lighting, more speed enforcement, pull-out lanes for slow moving farm vehicles, a policy to reduce the number of driveways on 16 Avenue and through Campbell Valley Park, and wildlife fencing where feasible. Proposed medium term improvements recommended for a six to 15 year timeline would aim to reduce unsafe passing and side road delays by adding two-way left lanes in sections with the most driveways and upgrading and installing signals at certain intersections. Long term improvements recommended for 15 years from now would focus on widening the corridor to four lanes. Approximate costs for the improvements within the Township of Langley are currently estimated at $3 million in the short term, $11.5 million in the medium term, and $119 million in the long term. The Township will likely seek funding from outside sources to help with the costs.

Aldergrove Star

Safety while driving, travel time, and speeding vehicles are emerging as residents’ top concerns about 16 Avenue, according to a study being done to identify strategies to improve the busy corridor. The 16 Avenue Corridor Study was launched by TransLink in November 2013, upon request from the Township of Langley, and involves the City of Surrey, the City of Abbotsford, the Ministry of Transportation, and ICBC. The goal is to provide a high level overview of the corridor and prioritize enhancements that can be made in the short, medium, and long term. The Township contributed $47,000 towards the study, which is looking at 16 Avenue through multiple jurisdictions, from Highway 1 to Highway 99. On September 28, a presentation on the status of the study and a history of road and its development was given to Township of Langley Council by the Township’s Manager of Transportation Engineering Paul Cordeiro and Transportation Engineer Richard Welfing. “16 Avenue is a major arterial road, a designated truck route, and part of the regional Major Road Network (MRN),” Cordeiro said. A main road running east/west from Abbotsford to White Rock, it links to several Canada/US border crossings. Since 1986, it has been identified as an arterial road in the Township’s Master Transportation Plan, to be widened to four lanes. “Traffic volumes on the corridor have increased from 8,880 vehicles per day in 1992 to approximately 12,400 vehicles per day in 2011,” said Cordeiro. “That’s an average annual increase of 2.1% per year, a large percentage of which is truck traffic.” Over the years, several stud-

As part of the 16 Avenue Corridor Study, safety, collision, and traffic data has been analyzed and stakeholders such as the Agricultural Land Commission, Chambers of Commerce, and the Metro Vancouver Parks Department have been consulted. The public was also asked for its input through “Online Open Houses” that were hosted by the Township and other study partners. In July, a PowerPoint presentation and survey was posted on the Township’s website and participation was sought through social media. Survey respondents were asked to rank their top three concerns about the 16 Avenue Corridor and their level of support for the short, medium, and long term improvements proposed. Feedback was received by 168 respondents, the majority of whom supported the three phases of proposed improvements. Common comments received included calling for the widening to four lanes to be implemented sooner, concern for cyclists, pedestrians, and wildlife, and the need to consider other alternatives such as transit. The public’s input has been added into the 16 Avenue Corridor Study draft and an additional public consultation period will be held in late October. Township staff expects to report back to Council with the finalized study later this year. However, Cordeiro noted that, because the study is looking at the overall 25-km long corridor, a more detailed look at the Township’s 16 km portion of the road may be required. He suggested the Township’s short and medium term improvement options be examined in 2016 and the longer term solutions be re-examined in ten to 15 years.

The leaves are changing colours, a chill is in the air – fall is here and it is the perfect time to pitch in and clean up the community. For the past four years, the Township of Langley’s Adopt-AProgram has been holding a cleanup each spring to rid local streets, parks, trails, and waterways of litter and debris. The events have been so successful that this year an additional event has been added in the autumn. The fourth annual Fall Clean Up Langley Days will be held Friday, Oct. 23 from noon to 5 p.m. and on Saturday, Oct. 24, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. “Clean Up Langley Day has been really well received by local residents, organizations, and businesses,” said Amanda Connolly of the Township’s Strategic Initiatives Department.

“Everyone has been very enthusiastic, so this time we are holding the event over two days. We hope also having it on a Friday will give businesses and schools a better opportunity and more convenient time to participate. All volunteers are welcome to sign up for either day.” This is the second event to be held this year, following an April 25 cleanup that saw 200 dedicated volunteers collect close to two tonnes of waste – the largest turnout and most amount of material collected in the event’s history. Providing an additional Clean Up Langley Day event is also part of a new Litter and Illegal Waste Management Strategy adopted by Township Council this spring.

Away or busy on October 19?

“The Township of Langley is a great place to live and people take a lot of pride in their community,” said Tanya Drouillard of the Township’s Strategic Initiatives Department. “We are trying to find ways to keep Langley clean and beautiful, and for residents to get involved in that process. The Strategy is based on education, infrastructure, and enforcement, and awareness plays a major role in that approach.” The Litter and Illegal Waste Management Strategy recommends holding Clean Up Langley Days twice a

year, to beautify the Township in conjunction with Earth Day in the spring, and again during Waste Reduction Week in October. Businesses, schools, community groups, families, and individuals who would like to pitch in and help out this fall can register online at tol.ca/adopt, or contact Amanda Connolly at 604-5327300 or email adopt@tol. ca. Cleanups will be held throughout the municipality and everyone who joins in will be provided with gloves, safety vests, garbage pickers, and garbage bags. Participants can choose to work in specific neighbourhoods and can organize a cleanup of their own or join an existing work group. Garbage collected will be picked up and disposed of by Sierra Waste Services Ltd.

Kodiaks roll with two wins 5-2 win over Panthers, 6-1 win over Knights, moves Aldergrove to second place By KURT LANGMANN Aldergrove Star

KURT LANGMANN PHOTO

Kodiak Spencer Unger had a three point night with a goal and a pair of assists against the visiting Port Moody Panthers, Sept. 30.

The Aldergrove Kodiaks took their second win in a row with a 5-2 defeat of the Port Moody Panthers at Aldergrove Arena, Sept. 30. This win and the 6-1 win over Langley Knights two nights earlier improves the Kodiaks standing to nine points after 8 games (4-3-0-1) and second place in the Harold Brittain conference. Mission City Outlaws lead the Junior B Hockey division with 11 points after seven games, while the Panthers remain mired at the bottom of the Tom Shaw conference with two points after seven games. The Kodiaks led the game from the start, with Spencer Unger earning three points in the first three goals for the game’s first star. Unger scored the only goal in the first period on a breakaway, assisted by Davin Padgham and Edvins Jansons. Kodiaks’ scorers in the second were Erik Bocale, Cameron Davitt on the power play, and Matt Oliver, before the Panthers notched their first goal. Kodiaks’ assists were from Unger (2), Eric Callegari, Elijah Vilio, Wyatt Versluis and Quinncy Leroux. The Panthers upped the intensity in the third and were rewarded with their second goal

Thunderbirds off to slow major midget start By GARY AHUJA Aldergrove Star

Holding leads continue to be a problem for the Fraser Valley Thunderbirds. The major midget hockey team was up 4-1 on Saturday after one period against the Vancouver North East Giants, but managed just a single point in the 5-5 draw. And in the rematch the next morning, the Thunderbirds were up 3-2 heading into the third period but let another point slip away as the Giants scored late for

the 3-3 final score. The B.C. Major Midget Hockey League teams were playing a home-and-home series with Saturday’s contest at the Poirier Sports and Leisure Centre in Coquitlam and the rematch at the Abbotsford Recreation Centre. Langley’s Jonathan Stein and Abbotsford’s Jake Mulder led the way in game one with a goal and an assist apiece while Zac McKee (Abbotsford), Andrew Sorenson (Abbotsford) and

Jamie Housh (Mission) had one goal each. Matthew Dyck (Langley) set up one goal. Mackenzie Wight (Chilliwack) scored twice in the second game while Jonathan Rees (Langley) had a goal and a helper. Rees also had an assist to finish the weekend with three points. Aldergrove’s Baxter Anderson had one assist and another Aldergrove product, Jordan Naylor, got the call in goal. Fraser Valley sits at 1-2-3

through the early part of the season. The Thunderbirds host the first-place Vancouver North West Giants at the ARC on Saturday, Oct. 10, before completing the rematch at the North Shore Winter Club on Sunday, Oct. 11. ••• The Fraser Valley Thunderbirds let a 4-1 thirdperiod lead slip away, settling for a 4-4 tie, Sept. 27.

World lacrosse championships coming to Langley

Aldergrove Star

“Building a home and financing our business, it’s everything we’ve worked for.� Karen and Wilfred, Chilliwack Members

The world indoor lacrosse championships are coming to the Langley Events Centre in 2019. The announcement was made after the closing ceremonies of the 2015 championships. Canada won their fourth consecutive gold medal defeating Iroquis 12-8 on Sunday. The championships were hosted by the Ogondaga Nation in upstate New York. Thirteen teams competed at the 2015 championships. This will be the first time Canada has hosted a major international men’s indoor lacrosse event on the west coast. “Our community has quickly become a ‘lacrosse town’ and we welcome the chance to experience the game at this level,� said Township Mayor Jack Froese. The tournament will be staged in partnership with the Canadian Lacrosse Association and the B.C. Lacrosse Association. “It’s an honour to be able to host Canada and the rest of the world in a sport we are so actively involved in and we look forward to working with our partners, the Canadian Lacrosse Association and the B.C. Lacrosse Association in helping put on a terrific event,� said Jared Harman, the LEC’s director of business development. “The LEC has played host to many high profile events including the prestigious Mann and Minto Cups, the highest performance of senior and junior A lacrosse championships in Canada,� said Sohen Gill, the president of the BCLA. “Also home to the Vancouver Stealth of the National Lacrosse League, the LEC facility is first class from the structure itself to its management and staff, who are exceptional and experienced in their administration, promotion, and co-ordination of activities on and off the floor.� “The value of being able to host an international event such as this will have a positive impact on the growth of our sport,� said Stewart Begg, the CLA director of high performance and international relations. “This level of play highlights international lacrosse and our national team program as it showcases the speed, skill and athleticism of lacrosse.�

Families whose children live with complex care needs will continue to receive the respite care they need, thanks to the generosity of those who attended the Matthew’s House Giving Gala on Sept. 12 at Mt. Lehman Winery. The event brought in more than $140,000, including cash donations, sponsorships and auction proceeds. “We are overwhelmed by the generosity of those who attended this event,� said Karyn Santiago, chief executive officer of Communitas Supportive Care Society, which operates Matthew’s House. Matthew’s House, open since November 2013, is a respite facility located on the Dave Lede Campus of Care on Marshall Road next to Abbotsford Regional Hospital. It costs about $1 million annually to operate Matthew’s House, with most of that coming from donors and fundraising events. To learn more visit mattshouse.ca

Former Board of Education Trustee Cecelia Reekie, Cultural Presenter and Residential School Survivor Josette Dandurand and Aboriginal Support Worker Luke Dandurand

Langley Schools honour residential school survivors Orange Shirt Day was held September 30th and many students and staff chose to wear orange in recognition of the harm the residential school system inflicted upon many children of Aboriginal families. Cultural Presenters shared stories of residential school survivors and many schools held assemblies that included Aboriginal Support Workers and guest drummers. Orange Shirt

Day began in 2013 and is the legacy of the St. Joseph Mission residential school in Williams Lake, BC. Residential school student Phyllis recalls having her new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the Mission and it has become symbolic of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come. Search Twitter for #orangeshirtday to see many photos of school activities.

Langley Schools are Power Smart October is BC Hydro’s Power Smart Month and Langley Schools are committed to energy efficiencies all year. The Langley School District has become a Top Power Smart District for 2014 through its conservation efforts. Recently, District teams have been hard at work changing to more efficient lighting to reduce consumption at Langley Fundamental Middle Secondary, WGSS and ACSS. Those changes alone will save enough to power 11 houses for a year!
