Customers are upset after a sold-out male strip show was cancelled because of an Abbotsford bylaw banning exotic dancing, according to the manager of the pub where the event was to be held. The Station Pub was to host male strippers from Magic Mike’s Canadian Playboyz, a group that puts on adult-themed shows across the country, on April 23. However, earlier this month, the pub was notified that a city bylaw specifically outlaws exotic dancing in bars and pubs. According to the bylaw, both the establishment and each strippers would be fined $500 if a show took place. The City of Abbotsford confirmed bylaw officials had contacted the pub about the event. The Station Pub’s manager, Nicole – she did not give her last name – told Black Press that neither the organizers nor the pub was aware the bylaw existed prior to booking the private event. “It’s sad,” said Nicole, who said substantial rev-

enue was lost. “A lot of people were upset about it.” She said the event was a private booking, and only those who bought tickets were to be allowed in. “We’re a pub. Everybody bought tickets to a private event. I don’t see why we couldn’t hold it.” The bylaw dates back to 1997, and bans all such shows, even if the performers do not remove all their clothing but are “substantially nude.” The site selling the tickets, told prospective customers: “You have seen the amazing Hollywood blockbuster movie “Magic Mike.” Now you have a chance to see the similar themed action, LIVE! Come and have fun for our ultimate ladies night :)”

Only women were to be permitted at the event. Tickets have since been refunded. Other shows have been scheduled for Langley, where exotic dancers are permitted but cannot go fully nude, and at Aldergrove’s Alder Inn, where nudity is allowed, according to Brad Alexander, the show’s operator. Alexander said bylaws regulating stripping vary across the country, with some municipalities permissive and others regulating how dancers can perform and how much clothing they can remove. In some locations, he said, even male strippers must cover their nipples. “These laws are so outdated,” he said.

An exotic dancing show scheduled for the Station Pub in Aldergrove area was cancelled because of a local bylaw.

Police investigating man’s false shooting claim Aldergrove Star

Langley RCMP are trying to figure out why a man made a false claim of being shot early Thursday morning in Aldergrove. Police were first called at around 4 a.m. Jan. 21 to attend a residence in the 27100 block of Fraser Highway where a male had arrived and indi-

cated he had been shot. Officers attended and located the victim, a 43 year old male who appeared to have suffered an injury to his shoulder. He was transported to hospital for treatment of his non-life-threatening injuries. Police were led to believe the

‘shooter’ may be in the area and out of an abundance of caution, the Lower Mainland ERT Team was called to attend to ensure the safety of the public. However, prior to the ERT Team’s arrival, police were advised by hospital staff that the injuries suffered by the victim do not appear to be consis-

tent with being shot. The request for ERT was cancelled and investigators are continuing with their investigation, and are looking for witnesses to this incident. If you have information that might assist with this investigation, please call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200. Should you need to remain anon-

ymous, please call CrimeStoppers. There are four ways to leave an “anonymous tip” with Crime Stoppers: phone 1-800-222-TIPS (8477); website www.solvecrime. ca; text: BCTIP and your message to CRIMES (274637); or Facebook www.facebook.com/metrovancouvercrimestoppers.

Parents fear changes could end community tradition By TYLER OLSEN Aldergrove Star

The loss of Grade 6 and 7 students from Bradner elementary school could spell the end for a 97-year-old tradition and lead to an exodus from the public system, parents say. The Abbotsford school district has proposed moving students in those grades from six rural schools to middle schools in the city core. The move would bring the rural schools – Bradner, Mt. Lehman, Aberdeen, Ross, Barrowtown and Upper Sumas – into conformity with the city’s other K-5 elementaries. But the proposal, which will be voted on by the school board in February, has drawn opposition from many parents. The district, which is holding information sessions on the proposal this week and next, says the inconsistency among elementary schools poses logistical challenges. They note that it also means the rural students also currently end up attending different schools in three consecutive years and don’t benefit from a “full middle school educational experience.” But Amanda McAllister, a parent of three Bradner students, said parents are unanimously against the proposal and have been discussing sending students to private schools or in the neighbouring Langley school

district, instead of the under-utilized Reimer middle school, as proposed by the district. An online survey she created found 109 of 114 Bradner and Mt. Lehman parents opposed the grade reconfigurations. McAllister says parents are devoted to Bradner’s grade structure and its community feel, and there are also worries that the annual May Day celebrations – which are organized by the Bradner Parents Advisory Council – will be affected by changes. Not only are Bradner parents instrumental in the events organization, but highlights of the 97-year-old event include a maypole dance by older Bradner students and the crowning of a May Day king and queen from among the Grade 7 class. “It’s a great tradition,” McAllister said. “It’s important to the school and important to the community, and it’s something special that we don’t want to lose.” McAllister said she attended a recent information session at Reimer and was impressed with the administrators and staff there. But she said if the Bradner kids end up dispersed around the region, then she may follow suit and would consider sending her children to a private school. “Bradner is a special area because we’re a sort of community,”

Parents of Bradner elementary students worry that moving the school’s Grade 6 and 7 students to Reimer middle school will put an end to the community’s 97-year-old May Day celebrations. McAllister said, adding that the school has done an excellent job at incorporating outdoor learning into the curriculum. “I think there’s something really special at Bradner that we don’t get anywhere else.” McAllister said she understands why the district has proposed the reconfiguration, but doubts that it

will succeed, given the resistance by parents. At Thursday’s information meeting for the school, she presented a proposal that would see Bradner designated a Kindergarten-to-Grade 8 Nature School of Choice. In an email to The News, Bradner parents Darren and Laurie Brader said they’re concerned about send-

ing students to Reimer because of the Townline Hill gang conflict, which has seen numerous criminal incidents – ranging from property crime to homicide – in the area over the last year. Similarly, Conny Corcoran wrote the school district to say she will look west to Langley if the Abbotsford school district follows through on its plan. “I have specifically chosen Bradner Elementary to be the best choice for my children because of the fact that it does go to Grade 7,” she wrote. “I do not believe sending my children into such a large sea of change at the age of 11/12 is at all appropriate for their mental stability … These are the years of so much change within themselves that they need the most stable environment that we can possibly provide.” In an email Thursday to Black Press, the district stated: “We look forward to the presentation of information and resulting discussions with parents at our three consultation meetings. So far, there’s been a good exchange of ideas and information, in a respectful and open atmosphere. “In February we will schedule follow-up meetings at each of the six rural schools, to review additional information and respond to some of the suggestions made.”

Brothers honoured for their life-saving actions By MONIQUE TAMMINGA Aldergrove Star

Two Langley brothers have been awarded the Vancouver Police Board’s highest civilian honour, the Certificate of Merit, for their roles in saving a life in August 2014. The two were among a larger group of individuals and officers honoured for acts of bravery during a ceremony at the Roundhouse Community Centre on Tuesday. In August 2014, Brian and Graham Haddon were driving with their family along Marine Drive during the morning rush hour, on their way to the Vancouver airport. The brothers were en route to the World Pipe Band Championships in Scotland, a trip that they make annually to compete as mem-

bers of the SFU Pipe Band. As they passed beneath the Knight Street overpass they heard horrific screams coming from a female motorcyclist who had just been run over by an SUV driving down the ramp. The Haddon family knew they needed to help. “I could see she was pinned under the front of the SUV,” said Brian on Tuesday after coming home from the ceremony. “When you see something like that, a switch just flips and you move into action. I think it helps that my parents are both first responders so it’s what we’ve always known and seen.” The family car pulled over and both brothers jumped out, running back into traf-

Brothers Brian (left) and Graham Haddon were awarded the Vancouver Police Department’s highest civilian honour, the Certificate of Merit, for their roles in saving a life in August, 2014. fic to help lift the SUV off the motorcyclist. Together with their father and another motorist they were able to provide enough space between the woman on the ground and the car that she could be pulled out. “The traffic was heavy and

moving quickly at that time of the day, and we were very concerned that all of the people involved at the scene had the potential to be injured by the passing cars being driven by distracted drivers, most looking at the rescue effort instead of the road—some even taking

pictures with their phones as they drove past at 60 km/h,” recalls mom Lori Haddon. “It was a very dangerous situation for everyone involved.” During the rescue Brian sustained a burn to his calf from the exhaust pipe of the motorcycle while holding the SUV up in the air. “It hurt but I knew I had to keep lifting the car,” he said. Once the motorcyclist was out of danger on the side of the road the Haddons rendered first aid until the Vancouver Fire Department crew arrived. As soon as the VFD took over her care, the family got back on the road in time to make the flight to Edinburgh. The Haddons found out later that the motorcyclist

sustained only minor injuries, thanks to them. “It was definitely one of the more memorable trips to Scotland,” said Brian. “My leg was bubbling a bit through the flight.” Brian, 20, is a third-year health sciences student and hopes to become a Vancouver police officer. Graham, 19, is a second-year arts student, but is studying sciences and math, with the goal of pursuing a degree in biomedical physiology and kinesiology. After he completes his degree at SFU he will train to become a respiratory therapist. The pair said the award is a “great honour” and that they were two among many others who had stepped up to save a life.

public notices Sites Sought for Langley Ecological Services Initiative In partnership with the Langley Sustainable Agriculture Foundation (LSAF) and the Ecological Services Initiative, the Township of Langley is conducting a three-year pilot project called the Langley Ecological Services Initiative (Langley ESI). Langley ESI is a Payment for Ecological Services (PES) program that pays farmers to maintain and enhance areas of environmental and ecological significance. It is a farmer-led initiative designed to demonstrate, analyze, and communicate the PES concept, encourage farmers to adopt Beneficial Management Practices, and make the case for establishing a long-term program in the Township. A minimum of ten sites will be established for the Langley ESI. The pilot project sites must: • be located along the main stem of Bertrand Creek, downstream from 264 Street at 24 Avenue • be a bona fide farm, as defined by the BC Assessment Authority • have ecological values (such as woodlots and wetlands), biodiversity values, fishery habitat values, riparian habitat values, and/or presence of federally-listed species-at-risk. LSAF is managing the Langley ESI on behalf of the Township. It will strike a site selection committee composed of farmers, Environmental Farm Plan advisors, and representatives from the BC Ministry of Agriculture, BC Ministry of Environment, and Bertrand Creek Enhancement Society. The amount of payment to farmers is dependent on the final number of participants in the pilot project, which will start in the spring of 2016 and conclude in the summer of 2018. Farmers are invited to apply directly to the Langley Sustainable Agriculture Foundation on or before February 5, 2016, by providing the following information: • Civic address of the property in Langley • Name(s) of the Registered Owner(s) • Name(s) of the tenant(s), if applicable • Contact information such as phone number(s) • A brief description of the type of agricultural activity on site by stating animal units and total land area dedicated to farming (to determine “farm status”) Example 1: mixed farming with 100 cows and 1,500 laying chickens on 50 acres. Example 2: 10,000 square metres of greenhouse plus 10 acres for hay. • Other relevant information (number of years farming at the site, number of people employed in the business, etc.) Please send applications to: Langley Sustainable Agriculture Foundation 19915 – 37A Avenue Langley, BC V3A 2S8 Or email: info@langleysaf.ca.

Fraser Valley farmers say they have had their soil contaminated, their fields flooded and been harassed by the operator of the Trans Mountain Pipeline. Now they want payback. The allegations by members of the Collaborative Group of Landowners Affected by Pipelines (CGLAP) are contained in the group’s written submission to the National Energy Board (NEB), which will decide in the spring on whether to allow Kinder Morgan Canada to twin the pipeline, nearly tripling its capacity to 890,000 barrels of oil and other petroleum products per day. The group, which comprises rural Fraser Valley property owners who control 79 pieces of land through which about 60 kilometres of the pipeline runs, told the NEB that the pipeline affects their ability to farm. And while the group said they are not opposed to the pipeline, they told the NEB that Kinder Morgan Canada should compensate them on an annual basis. They also asked the NEB to order Kinder Morgan to follow through on assurances to protect the quality of farmers’ land. “CGLAP members and their ancestors have been dealing with inconvenience, and sometimes harassment, relating to the existing pipeline on their properties which Trans Mountain has been using for over 60 years,” the group said in its submission. Peter Reus, the president of the group, said Kinder Morgan should realize the landowners “want to be partners with them.” With the provincial government saying they won’t yet support the pipeline application, Reus said, “They need friends.” The CGLAP submission includes several affidavits about the hardships the pipeline has imposed upon members. One Abbotsford farmer, Ron Omichinski, said that in 2013, pipeline workers came to his property for a 42-day “integrity dig.” After smelling oil, Omichinski said he found oil-contaminated soil on a plastic tarp. He was later told that the oil was taken to a hazmat site in Chilliwack. Omichinski said he also had a hay mower destroyed after

Crafts and a scavenger hunt at Langley Centennial Museum are some of the free activities being offered at Township of Langley recreation, culture, and community centres on Family Day, which also include swimming and fun in local pools, active games, and free family workouts.

Free ‘Family Day’ fun Aldergrove Star

Whether your clan likes to kick back with crafts, make waves in the pool, or expend energy on physical activity, there will be something for everyone at Township of Langley recreation community centres and the museum this Family Day. And in celebration of the special day, they will be offered for free on Monday, February 8. “Family Day is a great opportunity to get everyone together to try something new or enjoy a favourite activity as a group,” said James Marvel, Langley Township’s Manager of Recreation and Cultural Services. “We are really pleased to provide this chance for families to play, learn, and have fun together on Family Day.” The Township is especially pleased to offer the recreational and cultural activities at no cost, thanks to four $1,000 grants that were received from the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development, in partnership with the BC Recreation and Parks Association, to support Family Day events. “We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia,” Marvel said. “This funding has really helped us provide a variety of activities that will be enjoyed by families throughout our community.” Family Day events include a free Family Swim at the W.C. Blair Recreation Centre in Murrayville, at 22200 Fraser Highway. From 1 to 6 p.m., all ages can enjoy fun and games, led by Township play leaders in the water. New inflatables will be out for everyone to use and the waves will be running in the pool throughout the afternoon. Free admission will also be offered from

4 to 6 p.m. at the Walnut Grove Community Centre, at 8889 Walnut Grove Drive, where play leaders will offer active games in the gymnasium and lead the fun in the pool. Willoughby Recreation Centre, located in the Langley Events Centre at 7888 – 200 Street, will offer a free family event in the gym from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Feb. 8. The event will feature bouncy castles, face painting, prizes, basketball, and active play for all ages. There will also be a free family boot camp, family Zumba, and family workout. At the Langley Centennial Museum, at 9135 King Street in Fort Langley, a free Family Day event will run from 1 to 4 p.m.. Activities will include arts and craft projects and a scavenger hunt around the History Gallery where participants can unravel the secrets of the past and learn the history of Fort Langley. Guests can craft their own family crest and family tree, enjoy face painting, and win prizes. Families can also get in a silly photo booth and have the day captured by professional photographer Dennis Ducklow from Double Exposure Photography. “There was an overwhelmingly positive response to last year’s event,” said Maggie Lukban, arts and culture programmer for the Township, who noted the day’s activities are designed to strengthen family relationships by providing opportunities to learn and play together in an indoor, creative, and supportive environment. Guests can drop in and enjoy the fun any time during the free Family Day events at the museum and the three centres. Additional activities not funded by Province of BC grants may also be featured at the various locations. For details, visit tol.ca/events.

Editor: While I am sure someone in the Township office made an error in the requirements for a participant for the Seniors committee, unless I am incorrect asking a person between the ages of 16 and 24 for advice regarding seniors is ludicrous. I have grandchildren in this age group and although I love them dearly I would not for one second think they have anything to offer me for my future. I can hardly get a word out of them when I visit, the phone, computer and talk about the “latest” music star leaves me in limbo. My grandson is bound for the Air Force, we have nothing in common in this regard other than my pride in his commitment to Canada. My granddaughter thinks, and she has let me know, that I am so out of date in my thinking as to be considered a relic to be sympathized with. Further in my life so far, 78 years, I have never heard anything out of the mouths of people under 30 that makes sense. Terry Brenan, Aldergrove

Honouring our volunteers

Editor: One of the reasons I’m so proud to be a resident of Langley Township is because it means I’m a member of an incredible community filled with hard working volunteers who volunteer solely because of their love of people, of helping and of Langley. I think we all know someone who is at every event we attend, either flipping burgers, mopping floors, setting up tables, driving people to appointments, coaching kids, organizing soccer, hockey, baseball, or the other many sports taking place in the township, caring for or assisting our seniors, planting gardens, selling raffles tickets, organizing fundraisers, mentoring kids, assisting in special events, putting up posters, being a member of a service organization to mention a few of the ways volunteers help by doing anything they can to contribute to our community. These are the people we want to honor and we need your help to do it. We need you to nominate that special individual that you know for the Flowerdew Award or that team of two that is always working together for the Arnason Award. The Flowerdew Volunteer Award, is given in recognition of a volunteer’s contribution to the promotion of an active living lifestyle which enhances residents’ quality of life through creative, cultural, physical, or social pursuits and enhances Langley’s community spirit. The Arnason Award is given to a couple for outstanding volunteerism in the Township of Langley. We know incredible people live in Aldergrove and we ask that you nominate them and let us recognize them for their wonderful efforts. Winners of these two awards will receive a cheque of $750 for the charity of their choice. Detailed criteria, and more information is available on the Township of Langley’s website at tol.ca/awards or you can contact Sarah Morris, Township of Langley Special Events Coordinator, at smorris@tol.ca or 604-533-6148. We also encourage your secondary school to put forward the name of a student for the Pete Swensson Award given to a Langley student in Grade 11 or 12 in recognition of their athletic achievements, scholastic effort, community involvement, and personal qualities. The winning student receives a $750 scholarship to further their education. All accepted nominees will be honored at a special awards ceremony on April 7. Nomination deadline is Friday, February 12. Kari Medos, Township of Langley Recreation Culture and Parks Advisory Committee Member and Langley Awards Task Force Member

Celebrate ‘Family Literacy’ with your preschooler Aldergrove Star

January 27 marks Family Literacy Day in Canada – it highlights the significance of reading and engaging in literacy activities as a family and Fraser Valley Regional Library (FVRL) invites you to celebrate the day and beyond. This year FVRL has a new literacy program – 1,000 Stories Before Kindergarten for fami-

lies with preschoolers. Register your child for the free program by visiting any FVRL location. FVRL’s early literacy program encourages families to share 1,000 stories with their preschooler before they enter kindergarten. “Our innovative, self-paced program helps parents jumpstart their child’s literacy skills in the first years of life,” says

Heather Scoular, director of customer experience at FVRL. “It is well documented in both the learning and medical communities that children’s early experiences with books and reading help prepare them for school and set them up for success in later life.” Registered preschoolers receive a free keep-sake reading log to track the stories they

hear. The illustrated log offers parents helpful tips on how to read, write, talk, sing and play with their child. All stories are eligible, whether read at home, preschool, daycare or even library storytimes. A sticker is awarded to the child for every 50 stories. Completing a log can take anywhere from a few months to a few years, depending on how often parent and

child read together. Are your children past the preschool age? Literacy events for all ages happen throughout the year at FVRL. Search for events by visiting www.fvrl.ca and clicking on the Events tab. Join your library for special Family Literacy Day themed events throughout the last week of January at various FVRL locations.

Feeding children a priority

A Fraser Valley business owner with a long history of supporting worthy community projects has been honoured with an award of distinction for his role in the Aldergrove Starfish Pack program. Unitex Sales owner Bob Johnson was presented with a Rotary District Governor’s citation this week at a special ceremony. Johnson was recognized not only for his firm’s significant support of the Abbotsford Starfish Pack program, but also for supporting neighbouring communities and Rotary clubs that have introduced the Starfish Pack Program, including Aldergrove. The Starfish Pack Program provides two breakfasts, two lunches, two dinners and snacks for local school children in need to take home every weekend during the school year. Started in Abbotsford in 2013 in a single school for six students, the program has expanded into Aldergrove, Chilliwack, Langley and Coquitlam with a number of other B.C. communities working towards starting their own programs. Today, over 430 students in 33 schools are provided the weekend backpack in the five participating communities. Fifty backpacks are delivered weekly in three schools in Aldergrove alone. Unitex Sales not only provided all the backpacks used in the program at cost, but has also donated hundreds of backpacks free of charge to each of the Starfish Pack communities. Rotary District Governor Bill Robson made the

[His] contributions are extremely worthy of district recognition,” said Robson. Bev Dornan, president of the Aldergrove Rotary Club, also thanked Bob and Unitex for their generous partnership in the Starfish program. “In the Aldergrove area, we are providing support to 50-plus children with backpacks of food during the school term and this support goes a long way to make this happen,” said Dornan.

In accepting the award, Johnson shared a challenge he received from the leaders of the Aboriginal communities; “Bob, do things in a good way.” Johnson said he believes the Rotary Clubs of Aldergrove and other communities are “doing things in a good way and is proud to be part of this great endeavor.” Johnson had previously spoken of growing up in poverty himself and knowing even as a small child that “a small gesture can make a huge difference in the life of a family that’s struggling.” Johnson concluded his acceptance of the District Governor’s Citation by announcing another donation of free backpacks to allow the program to expand further. He also challenged other local businesses to get involved in the Starfish program. To find out more, visit www. starfishpack.com and www.aldergrovestarfish.ca Chartered in 1990, Aldergrove Rotary Club is one of 32,000 Rotary Clubs worldwide. Aldergrove’s 33 members meet Friday mornings for breakfast to enjoy the camaraderie of friendship and business networking coupled with a mutual desire to create a positive impact locally and around the world. They meet at the White Spot in the Best Western Hotel, 264th and Fraser Highway every Friday morning from 7:10 to 8:10 a.m. For more information on Rotary Club of Aldergrove, visit www.clubrunner.ca/aldergrove

Co-op will improve even more places people meet, play, learn and share by giving up to $1.5 million to local organizations, up from $1 million last year. Co-op Community Spaces was launched in 2015 to help protect, beautify and improve spaces in communities across Western Canada. In its inaugural year, the program funded 16 projects in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. “From creek rehabilitation to gardens to play spaces for toddlers, the projects selected for funding last year showcased the innovation and dedication of local community groups,” said Jack Nicholson, general manager of Otter Co-op. “Because I know our communities in the Lower Mainland area have their own unique ideas for spaces that could be built or improved, I would encourage our local community groups to consider applying.” To qualify, organizations must be a registered nonprofit, registered charity or community service cooperative. Administered by Federated Co-operatives Limited (FCL) on behalf of the Co-operative Retailing System (CRS), Co-op Community Spaces will provide donations between $25,000 and $100,000 to recipients. Because of the increased funding, the program will support up to 60 community projects in 2016. Funding is available to projects in three categories: • Recreation: Enhancing recreation opportunities such as recreation centres and playgrounds; • Environmental conservation: Preserving natural spaces such as green spaces, parks and interpretive centres; and • Urban agriculture: Supporting small-scale agricultural initiatives in rural and urban spaces such as community gardens and food education facilities. Applications for the 2016 Co-op Community Spaces program will be accepted from Jan. 18 to Feb. 12. For more details about this year’s program and to go to last year’s recipients at work see www.communityspaces.ca.

Aldergrove Youth Soccer in Cup Playoffs Aldergrove Star

Aldergrove Youth Soccer teams are well placed in the standings across all age groups with at least two more games to play in round robin cup play. Some teams have more games to be played due to field closures at other clubs. This is the time of year that Aldergrove athletes really appreciate the all weather facilities at Aldergrove Athletic Park. Many games are played under the lights as the club tries to accommodate all ages, which means some of the older teams kick off as late as 6 p.m. on some weekends. This past weekend fans saw exciting soccer with some games going to penalty kicks. The U17 girls as an example were tied in an energetic game and had to go to the penalty spot 10 times before they won.

Volunteers in Penticton have been preparing for the past 18 months to host the Games – the fourth time this community has done so. There will be over 1,800 volunteers working to ensure the participants have exceptional competition and a first-rate experience with opening and closing ceremonies, special events, and wonderful hospitality. The BC Winter Games has been the starting point for many athletes who have gone on to higher levels of sport. Over 50 per cent of Team BC athletes at the 2015 Canada Winter Games were BC Games alumni, and 18 alumni were part of Team Canada at the 2014 Olympic and Paralympic Games including Kelowna’s Kelsey Serwa (Ski Cross), Summerland’s Justin Kripps (Bobsleigh), and Josh Dueck of Vernon in Para Alpine.

The Penticton 2016 BC Winter Games kick off in exactly one month and 1,738 of B.C.’s best emerging high performance talents have registered and are ready to be part of this celebration of sport and community which runs February 25-28. Ten of the participants are from Aldergrove. The 1,225 athletes are from every corner of the province and have trained to earn a place to represent their zone at the Games. Competing in 17 different sports, the athletes are an average of 14 years old and for most, this will be their first experience at a multi-sport Games. Special Olympians will compete in basketball and figure skating and athletes with a disability will compete in wheelchair basketball and para cross country skiing. These athletes will be supported by 333 coaches and 180 officials who have earned their certification in order to provide the best knowledge and expertise to the athletes and the competition.

Kodiaks snap losing streak, 3-1 win over Panthers Aldergrove Star

The Aldergrove Kodiaks finally overcame their losing streak with a 3-1 win away over the Port Moody Panthers Saturday night. The Kodiaks dominated the shots on goal, 41-18, as well as the scoring that night. Aldergrove took the lead in the first period with a goal by Cameron Davitt, assisted by Quinncy Leroux and affiliate Ty Pickering. After a scoreless second period the Kodiaks notched two more in the third before the Panthers closed the scoring in this game. Kodiaks’ scorers were Leroux from Derian White and Spencer Unger, unassisted. Neither team scored on the power play, with Aldergrove having seven chances and Port Moody five. First and second stars were Leroux and Davitt. Panthers’ keeper Jack Stradliotti was third star for his work in stopping 38 of the Kodiaks’ 41 shots.

The result leaves the Kodiaks firmly in third place in the Harold Brittain conference, with 40 points after 37 games (19-16-0-2), and ensures a spot in the playoffs next month. WOLF PACK TAKES WIN The Aldergrove Kodiaks suffered a disappointing 4-7 loss to the North Vancouver Wolf Pack at Aldergrove Arena, Jan. 20. It was the Kodiaks’ third loss in as many games and leaves the team stalled at 38 points after 36 games (18-16-0-2). The Mission Outlaws and Abbotsford Pilots lead the Harold Brittain conference with both teams tied at 53 points after 38 games, Aldergrove is in third place and Ridge Meadows Flames follow at five points behind the Kodiaks. Aldergrove had started out well and were leading 3-1 at the start of the second period. However, the Wolf Pack evened it up in the second to make it 4-4 going into the third, and scored three more in the third for the win.

Shots on goal were fairly even with 33 for the Wolf Pack and 31 for the Kodiaks, and both teams scored twice on four power plays each. Kodiak Cameron Davitt was the game’s third star for his goal and assist in the first period. Scoring for Aldergrove were Nathan Washington, Davitt, Deryk Kirchner (unassisted) and Spencer Unger. Davitt and Kirchner both scored on power plays. Assists came from Derian White, Davitt, Brandon Dolby, Davin Padgham, Eric Callegari and Kirchner. Next up for the Kodiaks is a home game Jan. 27 versus the Ridge Meadows Flames. The Kodiaks close the month with two back-toback away games, Jan. 30 and 31, against the Mission City Outlaws and Grandview Steelers, respectively. The Kodiaks will have four remaining regular season games in February before playoffs begin. The dates are at home Feb. 3 versus Delta

N E WS PAPER

New Generations, a popular one-week festival featuring new plays and emerging directors, returns to the TWU stage in the first week of February. This year’s lineup runs the gamut from quirky rom-com to hard-hitting human drama. Chasing Tina, written and directed by graduating BFA students, is an offbeat romantic comedy poking fun at everything from trendy diets to the modern dating scene.

shot American spies get way more than they bargained for in the Great White North. While they try to ignore the unrequited love issues in the team, a mischievous alliance of Rogue Mounties gives them a run for their money. This is Canadian culture at its funniest. Students from all corners of the campus, some making their stage debut, perform all three plays back-to-back in one fastpaced evening. Don’t miss the explosion of talent at New Generations, presented by TWU’s School of the Arts, Media + Culture (SAMC) from Feb. 2 – 6. The plays run Tuesday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m. with a Saturday matinee at 2 p.m. For tickets and information, visit www.twu.ca/theatre or call 604-513-2121 extension 3872.
