Standing in front of the 1941 Hampden on display at the Canadian Museum of Flight, Tom Parsons held up a photo of his late dad Harry and fellow servicemen circa World War II.

arry Parsons sat alone in his study in Newfoundland one day in 1990, when his eyes welled with tears. The recollection of Clarence, one of Harry’s best friends, dying in the Second World War, flooded back. Emotion washed over him like a tidal wave. “It all came out,” Harry’s son Tom related. “You weren’t allowed to cry during the war years. You learned to keep your feelings to yourself.” Harry didn’t know if Clarence had the salt to be a fine airman – after all, he never smoke, drank, swore, or told dirty jokes, kept his uniform well pressed and went to church. Before every trip Clarence knelt on the tarmac for a short prayer and after each “op” he would do the same thing. Though his fellow airmen referred to him as “pansy,” Clarence’s air gunning was second to none, and he and Harry soon become as close as brothers. Clarence died in a Air Base near Lincoln (Waddington), England, when the Hampden bomber he was in crashed. He had survived the initial crash, but died trying to save the pilot. The Hampden exploded shortly after crash landing, with Harry watching. Harry picks up the story in a 20-year-old letter he wrote to Clarence: “I watched your approach to the runway but something happened and forced your plane to overshoot. You disappeared beyond the

grove. Your plane did not rise into view and it was a long minute before a black plume mushroomed up. I knew it was all over. I returned the bikes, went to the mess and had a beer.

the Allied forces during a war that spanned from 1939 to 1945 and gripped the world, financially and emotionally, in a stranglehold. ne of the first heavy bombers of the Second World War, the Hampden’s 1930 technology was eclipsed by larger and better defended aircraft like the Halifax, Wellington, and Lancaster. One of the two remaining Hampdens in the world, a 1941 model, is currently on display at the Canadian Museum of Flight at Langley Regional Airport, and Harry was one of the last airmen ever to fly in it. In a letter of memories he wrote for the local flight museum, Harry reflected on his operations in the Hampden. He wrote about a mission in which he spotted an important target, judging by the flak slowly rising almost to the aircraft’s height. “Suddenly there was a brilliant flash with a myriad of twinkles slowly falling. I was just going to mention the spectacular display, when Pinney said, ‘Poor sods.’ I knew then that what I had observed was an exploding bomber and the twinkles were in fact pieces of burning bombs, aircraft, and aircrew. It was then I realized that we were in a dangerous game. I must have experienced in other trips the same display several times, but I do not remember them. Perhaps one can be inured to horrors of war.” Another memory was of June 24, 1942, the day

of his last flight on the Hampden. “We knew that several returning aircraft had ditched in the North Sea. We flew east for a while, south for a minute, and then flew west following a grid very carefully. We were vulnerable to fighters who could pick us off with ease, no one dared to look up from the white caps of the North Sea, it would be like breaking faith. We did not see a damn thing and after four plus hours we returned to base. I never had such a feeling of frustration that tore at my inner self. When we passed the debriefing desk we did not slow down. Pinney just slowly shook his head (that told the whole story) and we kept on walking to our quarters, sad and mute.” The Hampden was the first multi-engine plane to land at Heath Row Airport in London. (Heath Row later became Heathrow – it had been a secret air strip for Seafire pilots to learn their landings.) Harry was the first person to deplane on that day in January 1942. hen the war ended, Harry soldiered on in civilian life, working and raising a family. After the war Harry had a career in aviation medicine with the Canadian Air Force. He also taught science in high school and was a counsellor to high school students. “He continued to make a difference in the world, and always had a positive attitude despite enduring so many tragedies,” Tom said.

The hockey spotlight will shine on Langley next month, and the nation will be watching. The Township of Langley, Langley Events Centre (LEC), and Langley Minor Hockey Association confirmed Monday that CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada (HNIC) “Hyundai Hockey Nation” event will take place at the LEC Dec. 3, 4, and 5. Township Mayor Rick Green said the community was one of six chosen across Canada. HNIC, accompanied by a team of coaches and trainers, are travelling to six Canadian cities to provide a weekend of hockey clinics and festivities for coaches, parents, and children aged 8-12. The event is sponsored by Hyundai and is called “Hyundai Hockey Nation.” HNIC and Hyundai (via Mosaic Experiential Marketing) will partner with the Langley Minor Hockey Association for the event. LMHA receives some priority registration for its members, and will receive the proceeds from the raffle of a new Hyundai vehicle. The LEC is the host facility. On-site activities include 12 hours of ice hockey clinics for children (six hours on Dec. 4 and six hours on Dec. 5), an outdoor festival (all day Dec. 5 and 6), a coaches’ symposium (four hours on Dec. 3), and various seminars for parents and coaches, spread throughout the days. The event will have CBC camera crews on site, and HNIC will be promoting the tour during live broadcasts. There is also a website set up highlighting the venue as one of the six nationwide stops. The outdoor festival will be held in conjunction with the event in the LEC parking lot. “This is definitely going to be something to look forward to,” Green said.

Stabbing victim hospitalized One man is in hospital, another in jail after a stabbing Sunday night in Langley City. by Matthew Claxton

A wounded man staggered into the street and collapsed after apparently having been stabbed early Monday morning, Langley RCMP said. Reports of a possible fight led the Mounties to the 20200 block of Michaud Crescent at about 2 a.m., said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the local RCMP. The first officers on the scene found a 29-year-old lying on the street, bleeding from his abdomen. Paramedics took the wounded man to the hospital, where he remains in serious condition. It appears the man was stabbed in a nearby duplex on the south side of the

street. On Monday morning, a trail of evidence markers led from the front door of the building across to the north side of Michaud Crescent. A pile of bloody clothing, apparently removed by paramedics, still lay in the street. Investigators were gathering evidence at the scene. A 31-year-old has already been arrested as a suspect, and was in police custody as of Monday morning. The victim and suspect were both known to police, Marks said, and they knew each other before the incident. It is too early to say what sparked the attack, Marks said. The Langley RCMP Serious Crime Section is still investigating the incident, and anyone with information is asked to call them at 604-532-3200, or to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1800-222-8477.

Mountie hurt during arrest

City of Langley “The Place to Be!”

A fight with a suspect left a police officer nursing an injured knee. by Matthew Claxton


A Langley RCMP officer was hurt during a struggle to arrest a man who had allegedly beaten up his girlfriend on Sunday night. Police got a 911 call just before 7:30 p.m. after several people saw a man and his girlfriend fighting near the 20700 block of Fraser Highway. Witnesses immediately pointed out the man to the first Mountie on the scene, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP. The man had been pushing, slapping, and pulling the hair of a woman thought to be his girlfriend. The officer found the pair nearby and told the man he was under arrest for assault. The man argued and resisted being handcuffed. The suspect then grabbed his victim and ran into the nearby Safeway grocery

store. The officer chased him, and with the help of people inside, he was able to catch the man. However, the suspect kept struggling even as more officers arrived to help. The suspect managed to push one of the officers into some shopping carts as he was being hauled out of the store. The officer hurt her knee badly enough that she needed to go to a hospital. The suspect is a 29-year-old Surrey man, now facing assault charges.

Remembrance Day services in Fort Langley have grown to become a significant community event. veterans have dwindled each year so it is vital to have young families attend and I am very pleased to see more interest and participation in Remembrance Day. The Fort Langley event includes veterans, RCMP and firefighters, as well as Scouts, Cubs, Guides and the youth of the fort. Scout/Guide members will form a colour party carrying the four flags under which Canada has fought since the late 1800s (the Union Jack (South African War), the old Red Ensign (incorporating the coats of arms of all the provinces and used during the First World War), the simplified Red Ensign (incorporating national symbols and used during the Second World and Korean Wars), and the current Maple Leaf Flag (adopted in 1965 and now used in Afghanistan). Alberts noted that young people will be singing during the wreath laying. The song, written in tribute to Canadian servicemen and women by Fort Langley’s Kyle Marsh and Carolyn Marsh, is Souls of the Past.

As well Cole Armour and piper Carl Hampson will be performing Amazing Grace. There will be a fly-past by the Fraser Blues, which is disbanding, and St. George’s Church will be opened up for refreshments after the service. The public wanting to be present at the procession is asked to be at the Fort Langley Community Hall by 10 a.m. The procession will leave the hall at 10:30 a.m. and head to the cenotaph where there will be a service culminating with the Sounding of the Last Post and two minutes of silence. Covered seating will be available for veterans, seniors and the disabled. Fort Langley services originally date back to 1920, just after the First World War, and were held for many decades before ceasing. They were revived 11 years ago. There are also two retirement complexes with events Wednesday. • More online at, click on “News”

In 1999, Gordie Gallard asked Brenda Alberts why there was no Remembrance Day service at the cenotaph in Fort Langley. Alberts didn’t have an answer for the then 76-year-old so that year they held a small event, Alberts bringing along her father’s Navy Bible. Alberts was the initial organizer but now there is the Fort Langley Remembrance Day Committee. Since its humble beginnings, there has been a community service at the village cenotaph that continues to grow each year. Gallard continues to attend and is 86 this year. “In 2000 we had our first service with Rev. Pam Worthington officiating with about 35 people, and it has grown every year and I would say there were 2,000 people attending in 2009,” she said. The service is open to anyone in the community and something Alberts considers important as a way to teach subsequent generations about Canada’s veterans. “Remembrance Day is about remembering the sacrifices made by veterans of the many wars that Canada has played a part in,” she said. “Unfortunately, the number of

Buy a poppy for our vets In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row ... Thanks to the poem by Canadian Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae, most folks know poppies grow in Flanders Fields in Belgium and northern France. Many Canadians soldiers lost their lives there in the First World War. It’s a lesson Canadian children learn in school in the weeks leading up to Remembrance Day. But part of the lesson is often left out: why we buy poppies, and where the money goes. The money we pay for poppies sold by legion members, cadets, Scouts, and community volunteers who spend endless hours around town in the cold days leading up to Remembrance Day goes to help veterans of wars Canada has fought in. A large part of the money raised in the community stays in the community. None of the money is allowed to be used for legion overhead, for example, for salaries, maintenance, or repair to buildings. The money is donated to local charities first, and then to provincial and global charities. In our communities, the money is used to support veterans, sometimes those who are struggling financially, or sometimes just for an appreciation dinner. In the past, money has been used to pay for counselling for soldiers who have posttraumatic stress disorder. Canada still has veterans from the Second World War, the Korean War, the Gulf War and the current war in Afghanistan, as well as from peacekeeping missions around the world. Remember when you are out and about over the next couple days: stop and chat with the people selling poppies, and even if you already have a poppy, throw in a toonie or more to help the veterans in our community stay active and healthy. – M.R.

Remembrance Day

Memories fade into farewell

There was a lunch break at mid-day, but most of the evening hours were filled with readying rifles and equipment for the following day, and as often as not, guard or fire-picket duty to fill the dark hours. A canteen run by the Salvation Army sold ten-cent hot dogs that you could enjoy as old, colourless films flickered against a small screen. Weekends were brief. We trained on Saturday mornings and the afternoons were dubbed a “Make and Mend day,” meaning your time was your own. You could do your washing by hand, for instance, shine your brass, or stroll over to the canteen. Sunday we had to attend church parade. There were only two religions recognized: Roman Catholic or Protestant. The afternoons were free. Times were vastly different: no television, homes were mostly heated by coal. Traffic was at a minimum, and most soldiers came from homes that didn’t own a car. Telegrams were the fastest communications, with Morse code messages tapped and speeding along electric cables slung between poles along the railway track. Radio was in its zenith, with sombrevoiced announcers telling of the battles raging across the globe. There was wonderful entertainment, with such names as Fibber Magee and Molly, Lux theatre, Jack Benny, and the wonderful world of the big bands with their melodious music. Time passed in the sound of hundreds of clicking wheel-sounds, as steam trains transported us from camp to camp for advanced infantry tactics and paratrooper training. Then, eventually being shipped overseas with the fear, boredom, cold, loneliness, and fun that adventure provided. Memories were established that will never die. Never die, that is, until the people who lived it finally say their final farewell… and, by the number of WWII veterans remaining, that time is not far off. Mike Harvey, Langley



Technology resets bully tolerance to zero Dear Editor, Several children have been repeatedly bullied by a certain boy at school for the past three years. We have reported the incidents correctly. While the principal was excellent and has tried numerous attempts to curb the child’s behaviour, the bullying prevailed. We have become frustrated and confused with the whole process, which seems to be endless. The public was told years ago that schools have “zero tolerance to bullying.” I dare say that is false. Recently, I was told

the school district follows a “kids can learn” approach that focuses more on retraining behaviour than on discipline. That may work for the average behaviour-troubled child, but what happens when all techniques have been tried, to no avail, after three years of bullying? The other day, my son was been bullied yet again on the way home from school, by the same child. This time was different. My child got a brilliant idea: he recorded it all on his cellphone. The next day, the recording was played for the

principal, who immediately contacted the RMCP. This bullying incident was no more severe than past ones, but now there was concrete, undeniable proof of who said what. The school liaison RCMP officer was at my door the same day, and explained it was harassment and criminal behavior that would be dealt with immediately. If the bully refuses to comply with the officer’s orders for “no contact” with my son, then a restraining order will follow. As a family, we had a big sense of relief. Many kids have cell phones capable of audiorecording. If your child is being bullied, I urge you to tell your child to record future incidences and report them to both the principal and the RCMP.

Dear Editor, I felt compelled to serve my country in a fighting capacity during the war. I’d accomplished it by having my father sign a letter stating I was now in my 17th year. That qualification plus a physical examination were all that were needed to become a Boy Soldier during the Second World War, at 70 cents a day pay. I’d just turned 16, and with delight, rode the North Vancouver steam ferry to the foot of Lonsdale Avenue to show my pals that I had made it. I was now in the army. The war raged across Europe. The German army had captured most of Europe and was threatening Moscow. Two years earlier, the British Commonwealth and Empire had gained a mighty ally when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbour, drawing the U.S.A. into the fray. Soon, we recruits would be off to basic training. Our new base was not far. For, instead of going to a railway station, we headed for the Interurban, which took us to Chilliwack, which housed both infantry and engineering recruits. The six-week course I found familiarly easy, as I’d been both a cadet and in the Reserve Army for a couple of years prior to my enlistment. Having endured a boy’s boarding school, I found the discipline imposed by the army benign. Briefly, this describes it: Reveille at 6:30, with a rush of men from their double-bunked beds to the primitive washroom facilities. After breakfast, hastily ensuring that all equipment including our blankets was neatly squared away. No sheets for the army or navy; the air force, however, received them. Parade square drilling began around 8 a.m., followed by numerous other subjects and skills which included weapons training, respirator drills for poisonous gas, military tactics, first aid, bayonet practice, obstaclecourse, military law, and other fascinating subjects that continued until supper time.

Legions host area’s main services

Thousands of people are expected at Langley’s Remembrance Day events at Royal Canadian Legion branches. by Heather Colpitts

Langley Advance files

Last year the parade went through downtown to the old location on Eastleigh Crescent. The ceremonies for Langley Branch 21 will be in front of the new location on 56th Avenue for 2010 and move to Douglas Park in the future. Fort Langley-Aldergrove MLA Rich Coleman (inset) was one of the people who laid wreaths at the Aldergrove ceremony last year.

of the community. In the neighbourhood of 1,000 people are expected to line Fraser Highway (a portion of which was dedicated last year as Veterans’ Way) to watch the parade go from 272nd Street to the branch at 266th Street. The parade will feature invited groups such as the RCMP, cadets, Scouts/Guides, and service clubs along with Legion members and vets.


November 11

Honouring the past

Local Royal Canadian Legion branches are busy readying for the most symbolic day on the calendar. Remembrance Day ceremonies on Nov. 11 are planned for both local legions as well as a community-organized event in Fort Langley and an evening music concert. It’s all in the name of honouring those who have served this nation. Langley Branch 21 is in its new location at 20570 56th Ave. and will be hosting the event for 2010 only at the new site. Future ceremonies are planned for Douglas Park, where there is more space for the public. And space is needed. “Last year, we must have had about 2,000 people probably,” said Walter Poustie, the legion zone commander. The road will be closed in front of the branch (56th Avenue) for the morning to allow room for the large crowd that’s expected. The parade will mass near the Liquidation World store at 10 a.m. and the group will parade down Glover Road and on 56th Avenue going to the branch. In the parade will be the colour party, the Legion Band, RCMP, Scouts and Guides, cadets and of course veterans. Legion Branch 265 in Aldergrove will once again bring together a large segment

Tuesday, November 9, 2010

As well, the Abbotsford Concert Band and the Greighlin Crossing Pipe Band will parade. Branch secretary and manager Madeline Roach noted that the Abbotsford band has performed in every Remembrance event since the branch was chartered in the early 1960s. “They’re not a marching band, but they march for us,” she said. About 60 groups and individuals are expected to lay wreaths at the cenotaph at the branch. The Abbotsford band will perform inside the branch after the ceremonies are complete. Fraser Highway’s westbound lane will be closed for about 25 minutes on Thursday morning to allow for the parade. Both branches feature the traditional ceremonies including the laying of wreaths. After, both are open for adults to socialize over refreshments. In Aldergrove, the branch’s cadet group provides hot dogs and drinks for the youth groups that participated in the services.

In memory

Tribute done through song

The Langley Community Music School is inviting the public to help it honour Remembrance Day the best way it knows how – through music. The school is hosting an evening concert in the Rose Gellert Hall featuring the school as well as the Central Valley Academy of Music. The program is a performance of Richard Strauss’s Metamorphosen, written during the final months of the Second World War. LCMS artistic director Ian Hampton called the work “an elegy on Germany’s destruction, and is a deep statement of mourning written by one of the great German cultural luminaries as he witnessed his society fall to pieces…” Metamorphosen was written for 23 solo strings and is quite a challenge to perform. The concert is premier La Corona, a piece based on the poetry of John Donne and written by Hampton’s father Colin Hampton, a cellist. “As a musical counterpoint to Metamorphosen, it seemed appropriate to also present my father Colin Hampton’s setting of John Donne’s La Corona sonnets, which contemplate the life of Christ,” said Hampton. “It is the last piece he wrote before he passed away, and it really is quite beautiful.” Leslie Dala, conductor of the Vancouver Bach Choir and Associate Conductor and Chorusmaster of the Vancouver Opera, will lead the orchestra through the program, which will also include Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 3. Violinist Calvin Dyck will be concertmaster. Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 for seniors, and $10 for students. The music school box office is at 604-534-2848.

Caution: Bad winter ahead!

Prepare today with a BCAA Membership! A dead battery or locking your keys in the car can become potentially dangerous when the weather turns nasty. And with all the talk of a harsh winter on the way, it’s time to think about a BCAA Membership to protect the ones you love. With BCAA’s legendary Road Assist service, you can be certain that help is never far away.

We are in for a cold and stormy winter.

The Old Farmer’s Almanac and local weather forecasters predict that we will be experiencing one of the coldest winters on record, with the heaviest snowfalls in mid- and late December and late February.

Will your car be ready?

One of the best ways to be prepared for the severe weather on its way is to be proactive.

One line of attack is a BCAA Membership.

According to Colin MacPhail, Director, Membership Marketing and Product Management at BCAA, many people wait until the first snowfall to call and by then BCAA is already very busy responding to their existing members. “When it cools down, our call centre gets flooded with phone calls, so we are telling people not to wait until their lock freezes or their car won’t start to call us,” says MacPhail. Meanwhile, winter driving can be rough on your car, which is why it is important to properly winterize your car to avoid costly car repair problems later. Fall is the best time to get your car ready for old man winter.

Here are a few things you can do right now:

Check to ensure you have the proper winter antifreeze and keep it topped up at all times; check tires for tread wear (snow tires are optimum); and have an emergency kit in your car at all times - it should include a shovel, sand for weight and traction, tire chains, a blanket, water, food, candles, a flashlight, a reflector and flares. “Should you get stuck on the side of the road for a few hours, someone should know of your trip plans and when you are to be where,” says MacPhail, adding to always have your cell phone fully charged when going on a long trip.

A membership offers great peace of mind and wonderful benefits.

On top of reliable roadside assistance, members also have access to thousands of Show Your Card and Save partner locations across North America where you can save on travel, hotels, car rentals and much more!

The price for peace of mind?

For details call 310-2345, click on or visit your nearest BCAA office.

World’s best ‘hurry hard’ to LEC The Langley Events Centre will host an international curling event in January 2012. by Troy Landreville

What has been called the “Ryder Cup of Curling” is coming to the Langley Events Centre in 2012. The Canadian Curling Association (CCA) and the World Curling Federation (WFC) announced Monday that Langley, and in particular the LEC, is hosting the 2012 World Financial Group Continental Cup. Like golf’s Ryder Cup, the Continental Cup has an international flavour. The competition, featuring six teams from North America against six teams

Double overtime spells doom for Chiefs

The slumping Chiefs lost twice in double overtime over the weekend. by Troy Landreville


first side to reach 200 points declared the winner. During a press conference Monday at the LEC’s banquet room, host committee chair Randall Kovaks said this is a “huge opportunity” to see the world’s best curlers showcase their skills.

TSN will provide fourday “Cup” coverage across Canada, but a great way to experience the event is to see it live, Kovaks said: “You’ve gotta be there to see all the curling live, because it’s unbelievable.” Currently, Team North America and Team World are knotted at three victories apiece. The 2011 event will take place in St. Albert, Alta. Jan. 13-16, a new time slot this season, as opposed to previous years when it was held in either November or December. “On the heels of the 2010 Olympics and curling success we are extremely delighted to bring one of our developing and growing events to the Township of Langley,” CCA director of event operations Warren Hansen shared.

With a twist on the The Righteous Brothers’ golden oldie, the Langley Chiefs have “lost that winnin’ feeling.” Yes, the Langley juniors collected a pair of overtime points over the weekend, but in the grand scheme of things, the Chiefs are winless in five, and have just two wins to show for their last 10 games. And, teams are beginning to catch up with the Chiefs in the British Columbia Hockey League Coastal Conference standings. After a torrid 12-4-0-2 start, the Chiefs are now 13-7-0-4, tied for second place in the conference with the surging Surrey Eagles.

The Victoria Grizzlies have the same number of wins as the Chiefs with three games at hand. Victoria sits three points back of Surrey and Langley. The Chiefs lost 8-4 to the Surrey Eagles Thursday at the Langley Events Centre (LEC). The next night (Friday) at South Surrey Arena, the Eagles beat the Chiefs 5-4 in double overtime. To cap the three-games-in-threenights stretch, the Chiefs lost another game in double OT, 5-4 to the visiting Cowichan Valley Capitals Saturday at the LEC. Surrey Eagles 5, Chiefs 4 (double OT) The Eagles out-shot the Chiefs 51-30 but needed a double overtime penalty shot from Bradley McGowan to secure the home-ice win Friday. Langley’s penalty killing unit was solid, holding the Eagles scoreless in seven attempts. Brad McBride scored twice for the Chiefs, who also got goals from

Trevor Gerling and Josh Myers. Cowichan Valley Capitals 5, Chiefs 4 (double OT) The Capitals scored the only goal of the third period to tie the game at 4-4, then found the net again in the second overtime period to down the hosts 5-4 Saturday at the LEC. Matt Ius’s second of the game, scored on a powerplay at the 12:55 mark of the second period, put the Chiefs ahead 4-3 after 40 minutes. Myers and Gerling (also on a Langley powerplay) had the other Chiefs’ goals. Ius had a four-point night with two goals and two assists. Chiefs goalie Wyatt Galley, who made 42 saves the night before in Surrey, got in the way of 34 Cowichan Valley shots in the loss. ••• The Chiefs are in Victoria tomorrow (Wednesday) to take on the Grizzlies at Bear Mountain Arena. They then head to Coquitlam Friday for a date with the Express.

mark the eighth edition of the Cup, which began in 2002 in Regina. “I am excited to welcome the best curlers in the world to the Langley Events Centre,” said Rich Coleman, MLA for Fort Langley-Aldergrove. “Earlier this year, curling forged a whole new generation of local fans thanks to the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. We will have to ‘hurry hard’ to get tickets to this huge event.” Kovaks said the Cup will benefit Langley’s young curlers. “Any net proceeds that may accrue from this event will be

forwarded to the Langley Curling Club to perpetuate the sport through its junior curling program,” Kovaks said. Nigel Easton has managed the Langley Curling Club since 1999 and said the Continental Cup will be a great showcase for the game. And, with a membership of 750, the local curling club has the potential of coming up with the bulk of the between 200 to 250 volunteers necessary for the four days, said Easton, who will be in charge of volunteers. Langley MP Mark Warawa said the Continental Cup has the opportunity to broaden the

growing popularity of curling in Langley. “I congratulate the Langley Events Centre and the Township of Langley on their successful bid for this event, hot off the heels of the fantastic BC Summer Games and the 2010 Winter Olympics Torch Run,” Warawa said. The only other time the Continental Cup was staged in B.C. was 2006, when Chilliwack hosted the competition. The World Financial Continental Cup, presented by Monsanto, is a joint venture of the CCA, WFC, and the United States Curling Association.

Curling fans and sports fans in general will be thrilled to see international competition up close in their own backyard,” Green said. The coming 2012 event will Please give.
