Four people and two companies have been charged in the horrific mushroom barn tragedy that killed three workers and left two more severely brain damaged in Langley two years ago. The provincial Criminal Justice Branch announced 29 charges under the Workers Compensation Act and the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations on Monday. “There are no criminal charges,” said Neil MacKenzie, a provincial Crown spokesperson.

Charged are Ha Qua Truong, Vy Tri Truong, Van Thi Truong, and Thinh Huu Doan, along with A-1 Mushroom Substratum Ltd. and H.V. Truong Ltd. The four individuals are all charged as directors of the companies, or as supervisors of the workers. The long list of charges relate to general health and safety rules – both companies are charged with failing to ensure the health and safety of workers – along with more specific faults. There are charges for not creating occupational health and safety plans, for not fixing hazardous workplace conditions, for failing to maintain a workplace to ensure safety, and for failing to inform workers about hazards. A number of the charges relate to a failure to inform employees

about or train them for confined space incidents. On Sept. 5, 2008, an employee collapsed in a small pump room in a mushroom manure processing facility in the 23700 block of 16th Avenue. Other men tried to rescue the victim, and were also overcome by an apparent build-up of toxic gas, or a lack of oxygen. Two men were severely braindamaged, and families were left to struggle economically without their primary bread winners. No date is yet set for a trial. All the charges have the same penalty, according to MacKenzie: up to six months in jail, and/or a maximum fine of $618,730 for each charge. The investigation into the incident took more than 18 months. “It’s very likely the largest or

most complex,” that Worksafe BC has ever undertaken, said Worksafe spokesperson Donna Freeman. Since the day of the incident, mushroom composting has been halted at the site. However, other work has gone on, including mushroom-growing. This mushroom farm was notorious even before the incident. Neighbours were upset by foul smells, and Langley Township was to take it to court the day of the fatal incident. After the incident, provincial environmental authorities investigated after waste escaped from a containment facility, apparently spilling into the headwaters of the Little Campbell River. • A court document detailing the 29 charges can be found online at

The Langley International Festival Society marked the event’s 10th anniversary this year by appealing to all the senses. The many people attending were greeted with the smells of international cuisine, colourful displays from countless cultures, music from instruments maybe new to many ears, and hands-on activities for kids of all ages. The festival brought together many ethnic and cultural groups from around the region, such as the Irish Heritage Society, which sponsored the 12-team mini-soccer tournament. For its 10th year, organizers moved the festival from Langley City to the Langley Events Centre property to allow for more displays, more activities, and more people to attend.

Those who strolled into the Taiwanese tent (above) found quite an elaborate and colourful display during the Langley International Festival. A balloon animal brought a smile to the face of four-year-old Alina Wong, who attended the festival events at Willoughby Community Park over the weekend. Children’s entertainer Mr. Flowers brought the balloons to life. The festival ran Saturday and Sunday, and featured music, food, and vendors from across the globe.

Agency serves up changes by Roxanne Hooper

A new era was unveiled Monday for the Langley Meals on Wheels (MOW), as the organization took its first huge step in a new direction. It will continue delivering meals to Langley seniors and shut-ins, assured executive director Dave Stark. But Aug. 30 will go down in the 30-year-old agency’s record books as the day it launched a new look, a new menu, and some new undertakings. Monday will also be remembered as the first time that MOW meals were cooked, packaged up, and picked up from the com-

mercial kitchen at the Gateway of Hope homeless shelter and outreach centre. In past, MOW dinners were prepared at the Langley Lodge. But given current construction at the City’s seniors care facility, MOW had to start looking elsewhere – at least temporarily – for a kitchen capable of preparing 50-plus dinners a day. In addition to making changes to the meal program, Stark was recently challenged with morphing the organization into something more current and viable. “There was an opportunity to broaden the scope of our service beyond the typical perception of a hot meal delivered by volunteers to frail seniors,” Stark said.

“The new direction now includes serving the ‘nutritionally challenged’.” So, on top of unveiling a new kitchen, logo, and website (www.langleymealsonwheels. com), MOW is forming a series of new partnerships. For instance, it is in the midst of partnering with the Langley Boys and Girls Club to develop a healthy and nutritional afterschool snack program for 60-80 kids from Douglas Park Community School. And, the newfound partnership with the Salvation Army could also open doors for other collaborative feeding initiatives. • More online:, click on “News”


Freeway crash locks up Langley roads by Matthew Claxton

A single-vehicle accident on the Trans-Canada Highway helped cause traffic chaos around Langley on Monday morning, as drivers tried a variety of alternate routes. Just after 6 a.m., a large truck tipped over between 248th and

264th Streets on the highway’s eastbound lanes. Neither the truck driver nor other motorists were hurt, but the mess took time to clean up. Langley Township firefighters were called in, as leaking diesel fuel was cleaned up and the remaining fuel in the truck’s tanks was pumped out, said district chief Kevin Anderson.

Firefighters were finished by 10:30 a.m., Anderson said. Coming at the beginning of rush hour, the crash forced eastbound traffic south into town. Drivers heading west also slowed down to look at the wreck. Meanwhile, other routes through Langley became clogged with diverted drivers.

Amber alert

Boy safe A boy allegedly abducted by his father was recovered safely in Langley on Sunday. by Matthew Claxton

A 12-year-old boy taken from his grandparents’ home in Chilliwack was recovered safe and sound on Sunday at a Langley gas station. A 911 call from Surrey at 6:30 p.m. Sunday put police on the trail of suspect Kenneth Daniel Morey, age 34, after his 12year-old son Daniel Sturm was abducted in Chilliwack at 1 p.m. The 911 caller saw Morey and his son leave Surrey’s Guildford Mall in a taxi cab. Police were able to locate the taxi cab at a gas station at 88th Avenue and 202nd Street. Morey was taken into custody and likely faces charges. Langleyites were asked to watch out for the boy after his abduction from his Second Avenue Chilliwack home. Langley residents were indeed vigilant, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the local RCMP. During the five and a half hours the Amber Alert was in effect, the call volume to police was much higher than normal. “Every grey Honda – we got a call,” Marks said. Langley RCMP also helped in the search, as it was thought the abductors were coming to this community. Local Mounties checked out several homes where they suspected the fugitives might have gone. However, it was Surrey RCMP who made the final arrest just after the taxi cab arrived in Langley from Surrey. Mounties issued an Amber Alert an hour after the abduction, pleading for the public’s help in locating the father, son, and possibly two other men believed present with Morey when the abduction occurred. Originally, police were watching for a white Honda Accord, and then a Grey 2001 four-door Honda Accord. Police said they were concerned for the boy’s safety. After recovering the child and arresting his father, police offered their gratitude to members of the public for their assistance in bringing the matter to a successful conclusion.

LEPS takes lead on summer harvest

Matthew Claxton

The Langley Advance Community Harvest is now in full swing, and volunteers are working hard. by Matthew Claxton

It’s harvest time again in Langley. Apples and pears are ripening on trees around the community. Unfortunately, many of them would go to waste, were it not for the aid of volunteers and the Langley Environmental Partners Society (LEPS). As per the “partners” in its name, LEPS is now taking the lead role when it comes to organizing the Langley Advance Community Harvest. The program, now in its fourth year, is based on a simple idea. Many Langley residents have fruit trees in their backyard. Often much, much more fruit than one family can hope to consume, or fruit that’s difficult for residents to even pick. By bringing together volunteers and tree owners, the fruit can be harvested and put to good use, with at least one third of everything picked going to the Langley Food Bank. Rachel Strivelli of LEPS has taken on the task of organizing this year’s harvest. Last week, Strivelli took to the treetops,

The poles have been fitted with fruit-picking prongs and baskets, which will allow volunteers to harvest

When I first started riding a lot this spring, to train for the Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley, I was surprised at how much wind makes a difference. What feels like a mild breeze to a person on foot can add a few minutes, and a few beads of sweat, to a bike trip. A stiff wind can turn a ride into an agonizing endurance test. We keep on riding, though, no matter what the weather or the roads throw at us. Last week, I was in the middle of a group of three riders on a training run, spread out as we barrelled down a hill in Cloverdale. It turned out that the road had been closed to cars – and a sidewalk had been built across the middle of it. The road gently sloped up onto the sidewalk – then turned into a three-inch drop on the other side. The jarring thump taught me a few things. It taught me to keep my eyes open, even if going down hill at upwards of 40 km/h. It taught me a new way to test my tire pressure. And it taught me exactly how hard my bike seat is. (On the Moh’s Hardness Scale of bike seats, it’s somewhere between sledgehammer and diamond.) • more online at, click on “Life”

When you love something, you need to protect it. In the same way you keep your possessions safe, you have to think about protecting your family. But beyond that, you don’t want your budget taken for a ride. We get it. Working together, we’ll find a balance between the best coverage and the right price. Then the crew will be just as safe as the boat. | 604.517.0100

The seniors of Langley Lodge will benefit from two recent donations. The lodge in downtown Langley City is undergoing a $28-million upgrade and expansion. Remax Treeland Realty realtors each contributed and came up with a $16,282.75 donation to the nonprofit society that runs the facility. As well volunteers with Home Depot worked on the lodge gardens Aug. 23 and 24. “As a not for profit, every single nickel and dime goes back into the various programs and services

for residents,” explained Patrick Matiowski, the lodge’s fundraising director. “Each time there’s a gift or donation… it has a direct impact for residents.” Home Depot volunteers built two raised beds that people in wheelchairs can work in, and constructed two pergolas with raised planter benches that are high enough for people in wheelchairs to pull under. “We try to do this a few times a year,” explained Mike Lahaie, a department head with Langley’s Home Depot. “It just feels great. I love doing these.” There are residents living in the new six-storey tower at Langley Lodge and the existing tower is under renovation as the facility expands and modernizes to meet current standards.

Motorcyclists turned onto the Langley Bypass from the Salvation Army Gateway of Hope homeless shelter, to begin the fifth annual Mercy Ride for the Homeless. Troy Landreville/Langley Advance


Riders hit open road to help homeless A total of $5,000 was raised for those at the Salvation Army’s Gateway of Hope homeless and outreach centre. by Troy Landreville

They came; they rode; they raised funds for Langley’s homeless shelter. The fifth annual Mercy Ride for the Homeless was a huge success, according to Salvation Army

Gateway of Hope director of operations Troy Gaglardi. “All in all, the day turned out to be a gorgeous, sunny day and [we] raised $5,000,” said Gaglardi, who took part in Saturday’s ride. The two-and-a-half hour ride had approximately 80 participants travel along Langley’s roads to Aldergrove Lake Regional Park. Once there, they played a game of “pitch the ball” in the Super Save bin to win a prize. The motorcycle convoy then proceeded to Abbotsford, then north to the Fraser River, before meandering through Glen Valley.

The motorcyclists, passengers, and supporters ended up at the Barnes Harley-Davidson location in North Langley for what Gaglardi called “a fantastic barbecue with food supplied by Moxies and IGA.” The Langley HOGS (Harley Owners Group) prepared the meal. “Music was by the JC Celebration band, a tribute to Johnny Cash, and all agreed they were first class,” said Gaglardi, who thanked the Advance for its support. All funds raised will provide training and assistance for those at the Gateway of Hope at 5787 Langley Bypass.

Workers must defend rights Everyone working in B.C. has the right to a safe workplace. Not everyone has one, however, as the families of five workers on a Langley mushroom plant found out two years ago. Three men were killed, two left severely disabled, in a toxic event in a small room. Charges were laid Monday against four supervisors or company directors, but the charges can only indirectly protect other workers. Too many workers in B.C. don’t know their own rights. They may not have much education. They may not speak English as their first language, or at all. They may simply be too young to worry about risking life or limb. Those vulnerable workers are more likely to be taking exactly the jobs where poor safety precautions can be fatal. The B.C. government should make it a priority to crack down on unsafe employers from Tsawwassen to the Peace River. Fines should be hefty, and they should be levied before anyone is buried. There needs to be more outreach – in more languages, in more venues, and more often. Perhaps some of the budget dedicated to telling us how great things are going could be put aside for this purpose. But workers can’t trust the government to do everything for them. They need to stand up and fight for their own rights. B.C.’s dwindling unions could be a big part of this, if they would look outside their traditional bailiwicks and try to aid workers in casual, part-time jobs or in smaller workplaces. We also hope that good employers, the ones who do try to keep their workers safe, will be speaking out on this issue, and helping to shame their less-ethical colleagues into acting better. If all employers were as ethical as most, there’d be little need for the other players to get involved. – M.C.

Tax gets better with research Dear Editor, The HST is now in effect, but the NO HST group is still at work, so I decided to do a little more research to find out if the NO group had come up with any facts to support their argument. I came up with more facts to support the tax. We have had a harmonized tax in B.C. for years: income tax. We pay B.C. income tax to Ottawa, and they forward it to the province, saving taxpayers millions of dollars. There will be no HST on basic groceries, health and dental services, hearing aids, eyewear, canes, walkers, prescription drugs, legal services, financial services, most educational services, insurance, and resale housing. Those with income of under $40,000 will save up to $400/year. Those with incomes of over $120,000 will pay

about $400 more in income tax. People who will pay more will be spending more, those who spend less will pay less HST. New home purchasers will pay HST but will only pay more if the house costs over $556,150. On used homes there is no HST. The province will save about $300 million a year in administration costs, and business will save $190 million. The province’s explanation why the HST was needed was a total failure. It should have been debated in the legislature. The NO side failed us because they did not come up with a viable alternative. The NO side may end up costing us a great deal of money, say a referendum is approved. Eric J. Bysouth, Langley [Note: A fuller version of this letter is online at]

Mufford overpass

Farmland loss cause for concern Dear Editor, Following is an open letter to: Agricultural Land Commission chair Richard Bullock and Minister of Agriculture Steve Thompson. Dear Sirs, Citizens Against Urban Sprawl Society (CAUSS) is a registered, not-for-profit

society comprised of people who support sustainable development and oppose projects that squander farmland or wildlife habitat. We are concerned that a proposed highway overpass [at Mufford Crescent and Glover Road] through ALR lands could result in the


Harper needs to protect north Dear Editor, With Canada getting a warning via the grounded cruise ship in the NorthWest Passage, will Stephen Harper heed it? Will the prime minister start spending billions on charting northern waters and managing ship traffic in the north, instead of squandering billions in Afghanistan? Instead of watching him driving around the Arctic on a quad for a photo op, many of us would like to hear news about Harper and his government getting a handle on the looming problem of northern waters shipping traffic and trouble – because it’s on its way. James Charles, Langley

loss of 30 acres of actively farmed land. Inevitable conflicts with slow-moving farm vehicles, the overpass will eliminate the viability of farms on and near the overpass, and will lead to increased speculation and sprawl, putting further development pressure on remaining farms. It is not in the public’s interest to pave over farmland at a time when energy prices and the global economy threaten our food security, or to risk contamination of these lands via run-off from the roads. CAUSS strongly urges the ALC to reject the exclusion application, and redesign the highway in a manner that leaves the farmlands intact and functional. Dr. Tracy Lyster, Citizens Against Urban Sprawl Society

Animal welfare

Past time for cats to pay their fair share Dear editor, Having parted with my Township licence fees that somehow permit me to look after my two registered, spayed, vaccinated, tattooed and micro-chipped dogs that never leave my sight or control, I am again perplexed by the logic that somehow enables cats to freely roam our neighbourhoods without a licence or a care in the world. Loose cats poop and pee wherever they like, kill our songbirds, and taunt our dogs

– sometimes in our own backyards! So they catch the odd mouse – but my terriers would be pretty good at that, too, if they had the freedom. Cats represented about 20 per cent of the animals through LAPS last year. Our doglicence money subsidizes cat owners and supports this carefree life for the felines. Let’s get on an equitable footing. Let cat owners pay their way, as well. Bill Image, Walnut Grove

Tamil boat people

Refugee understanding appreciated Dear Editor, I want to express my sincere appreciation for Matthew Claxton’s column [Tamils being met with racism, Aug. 27 Painful Truth, Langley Advance]. Tamils are fleeing from Sri Lanka to escape the violations of the international humanitarian and human rights laws including widespread abductions, disappearances, harassment, and killings of Tamils still taking place with impunity. These desperate Tamil boat people are asking Canadians to show them compassion, kindness, and understanding, which they also thought to be a rich part of our

country’s legacy. Commenting on a recent animal cruelty charge and judgments, some said our judges should be reminded of the slogan “defend the defenceless.” I find it hard to believe that most of our fellow Canadians are considering Tamils less than even animals. Public rages against the Tamil refugees who are going through the due process are not only mean-spirited, but also unlike Canadians.

Students need lessons on healthy choices Families can help students succeed by encouraging health.

Five-yearold Ethan Van Dyke, who heads off to kindergarten next week, and his three-yearold sister Maria, who is a couple years away from school, enjoy healthy snacks.

In 2005 the Langley School District gave parents a lot of food for thought. That’s when the district adopted its Healthy Schools policy and started making changes about what foods were appropriate for the school environment, and by promoting more activity. While it can be a challenge to get young people to eat what’s good for them, families are encouraged to steer their kids towards healthier choices. In the end, it’s the kids who benefit most through being healthier and also doing better in school. “Children function best when they are getting the rest, exercise, and nutrition they need,” said district communications manager Craig Spence. Here are some tips from the provincial Ministry of Education to help families. All students • Insist that your children eat breakfast every day, as it provides fuel for the brain to learn and helps them maintain a healthy weight. • Keep nutritious foods like cut-up vegetables and fruit, cheese sticks, low-fat yogurt, and butter-free popcorn on hand to make healthy snacking easy. • If your child has anaphylaxis, coordinate with the school principal on an updated emergency plan that best meets your child’s needs. • Schedule regular dental and any necessary medical checkups. • Encourage your children to choose milk or water at meals instead of sugary drinks, energy drinks with excessive caffeine, or pop. • Get children active through sports, or go for nightly family walks or bike rides. • Develop good hand-washing habits as frequent hand-washing reduces the spread of bacterial, cold and flu viruses. Primary students • Include a variety of fruits and vegetables in your children’s snacks and lunches every day. • Include your child when packing lunches so

Heather Colpitts/ Langley Advance

they can learn to make healthy choices early on. • Help your children learn about and understand Canada’s Food Guide which encourages a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. • Take family walks with your children and, if possible, walk them to school. • Join or co-ordinate a Walking School Bus or Bicycle Train to help your children get to school safely with adult supervision. • Set up a regular teeth-brushing routine and ensure your children are brushing and flossing correctly. • Introduce your children to active games they can play on their own, like hopscotch or jumping rope. When more children are around, introduce tag, soccer, or baseball. Intermediate/middle students • Whenever possible, encourage your children to walk, ride, rollerblade or skateboard to school instead of driving them. • Suggest that your children take the dog for a walk before and after school. • Limit your children’s screen time. Explain


to your children that it’s important to sit less and to move more, in order to maintain a healthy weight. • Continue to encourage healthy eating habits. Use Canada’s Food Guide to plan healthy meals and snacks, as they have different nutritional needs from children and adults. • Teach your children to avoid less-nutritious foods – foods high in sugar, fat and sodium, and help them learn to replace these foods with more nutritious snacks instead. Secondary students • Encourage your teenagers to get involved in intramural or after-school sports. • Suggest your teenagers take a class at the local community centre or encourage them to participate in a walking or hiking group. • Place your older children in charge of some of the family’s meals and grocery shopping so they learn how to buy, prepare and enjoy healthy meals using Canada’s Food Guide. • Encourage your teens to get plenty of rest to ensure they are alert and ready to learn at school.



Tikes go all day Hundreds of Langley’s littlest students will be heading to class for the first time Sept. 7 as they begin kindergarten. As part of a two-year transition, half of the local public schools will have full-day programs this year and the rest start next September.

LET’S CAN HUNGER At Envision, we believe in the power of people to make a difference in our community. That’s why more than 140 Envision employees will volunteer 600 hours of their time to non-profit organizations across the Lower Mainland as part of our fourth annual Days of Caring. Taking place September 20-24, Days of Caring is all about giving back to the community and encouraging employees to contribute on a face-to-face, person-to-person basis. This year’s campaign, titled “Let’s CAN Hunger,” focuses on the issue of food security. Our volunteers will work in local food banks, assist with food preparation or serve hot meals in community kitchens— ensuring that everyone who needs a nutritious meal has access to one. Here in Langley, 20 volunteers will spend three days preparing meals at the Salvation Army’s Gateway of Hope and assisting at the Langley Seniors Recreation and Resource Centre. But we need your help too! Envision’s Employee Giving Campaign takes place September 27 to October 8, and during this time we’re inviting members and the general public to make a financial donation to the Langley Food Bank. Drop in to our Langley City or Willoughby branches and pledge your support.

North American show jumpers hit the grass Saturday for a share of $75,000 and qualifying points in the Keg Steakhouse & Bar World Cup at Thunderbird Show Park in Langley. In the end it was the rider in the red jacket, California’s Ashlee Bond, whose big smile said it all. “I thought it would be a great course for Cadett because he’s been jumping really big and everything was on a forward stride,” explained Bond, who took first place.

Cadett 7 was flawless through each fence and an aggressive ride by Bond brought them home with a time of 34.23. Fellers finished in fifth after an early rail in his round. ••• Bond leaves B.C. next week for the Masters Tournament at Spruce Meadows in Calgary, where she’ll join Richard Spooner, Fellers, and Beezie Madden on the Nations Cup team. In a quick call to Spooner following the victory gallop, Bond had her big smile on. “You should have seen him jump, he was effortless,” she relayed. “He’s ready for the Masters.”
