The road to re-election for Liberal MLA Mary Polak appeared to be rocky at times, but by 9 p.m. Tuesday, it was smooth sailing – she was celebrating a one-sided victory over her opponents at a local pub in Willowbrook. Polak, the BC Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, learned early on that she had been re-elected for a third term as Langley MLA, taking 51.89 per cent of the vote. Her tally almost doubled that of second-place NDP candidate Andrew Mercier, at 26.87 per cent and was nearly five times greater than BC Conservative leader John Cummins, who took 11.84 per cent. “I think the win is particularly satisfying because when you’ve been in the role for two terms, it’s much more personal than

when people aren’t familiar with you,” Polak said. “It says something to me about the relationship I have with people in the community, and that’s very gratifying.” Polak’s win may not have been surprising in a solid Liberal seat, but it came amid a province-wide upset, as every poll taken during the election proved to be wrong. Instead of heading into a role in opposition, Polak will rejoin a Liberal majority government, Rich Coleman one headed Re-elected as MLA for into its fourth Fort Langley-Aldergrove term. Polak will be rejoined by several familiar faces from Langley. Rich Coleman, the veteran MLA of Fort Langley-Aldergrove, also easily won re-election. In addition, Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender won a surprise victory against an NDP incumbent in a Surrey riding, and will be

stepping down from civic politics to head to Victoria. Also switching jobs will be Amrik Virk, a longtime senior officer with the Langley RCMP, who claimed victory under the Liberal banner in another Surrey riding. Provincially, the Liberals took 50 seats, the NDP 33, the Greens took their first win, and a single independent was elected. Voter View turnout was video around 52 per with cent. Heading into the election, Polak and her or online supporters faced some adversity. On May 7 Polak’s campaign manager Todd Hauptman resigned because of lack of support by voters and politicians for gay rights. In an open letter a week before the election, Hauptman, who is gay, wrote that the base of Liberal voters in the Langley riding holds “hateful attitudes towards the community I am a part of.”

Liberal incumbent Mary Polak defeated her opponents in decisive fashion.

As well, this was the first time a BC Conservative leader has run in the Langley riding, and Polak admitted “that was a question mark for us.” Going forward, Polak said the province has to take advantage of all the opportunities it has in the resource sector. “We need to take that revenue and we need to put it quite directly into infrastructure in British Columbia,” Polak said. “And by that, I mean in the most broad terms, education infrastructure, health infrastructure, road and transit infrastructure… all of the things that keep British Columbia going, the services we depend on.” This will come from harnessing B.C.’s ability to trade with other countries around the world, she said. On a personal level, Polak is pleased to be serving Langley for another term. “My daughter and I moved here in 2005… and we have been welcomed,” she said. “What is so heartening to me is the relationship that we have been able to build with all the different leaders of the different not-for-profits and community groups in Langley.”

Virk victorious

A Langley Mountie has won election as a provincial MLA. Insp. Amrik Virk of the Langley RCMP will be switching jobs and titles and heading off to the Legislature in Victoria. Virk won Surrey-Tynehead. “It’s a bit of a bittersweet moment for me,” said Virk following his win. “Tomorrow I retire from the RCMP after 25 years of service. I take off one uniform serving Canadians and put on another serving British Columbians, and I am so honoured.” • More online

Liberal upset

Coleman celebrates fifth victory

The MLA for Fort LangleyAldergrove returns to Victoria to represent this riding.

Rich Coleman felt vindicated when the results started pouring for the provincial election. The incumbent for Fort Langley-Aldergrove said B.C. voters agreed with him that the Liberals and leader Christy Clark were the best choices for B.C. “It shows the people actually see the leadership of Christy Clark, my leader, but they also see just how strong our message was,” Coleman said. He said Clark did a “marvelous job as a campaigner for us” and “she’s just a great leader.” In his fifth election, Coleman hung onto his seat handily. On Tuesday night, Elections BC results showed Coleman with 14,533 while the next nearest finish was NDP candidate Shane Dyson with 6,700. Conservative candidate Rick Manuel had 2,353. Lisa David, a Green party contender, received 1,957 in preliminary results.

Heather Colpitts/Langley Advance

Jacqueline Johnson posted results from polls that were phoned into Rich Coleman’s campaign office in Walnut Grove, where cheers rose (left) when the Liberals took the lead.

The fifth candidate, independent Kevin Mitchell, had 619. (Elections BC has not announced final numbers yet.) “It feels great,” Coleman commented soon after being declared the winner.

He said the party focused on getting its message to the people who returned the Liberals to office. “We will now hunker down and do the job that we promised British Columbians that we would do,” Coleman said. The write in votes from Tuesday by people who didn’t vote in their designated vot-

ing place will still need to be counted. Coleman’s camp had people at each advance voting place and noticed an unusual trend with many people misreading their Elections BC cards. Coleman said it would take up to a week to sort it out and obtain the accurate final numbers.

NDP surprised

Dyson, Mercier make do with second place

The NDP had been hoping for a breakthrough even in Langley’s ridings. by Heather Colpitts and Matthew Claxton news@langleyadvance.com

The mood at the headquarters’ of the Langley and Fort LangleyAldergrove campaigns was somber as results came in showing an unexpected win for the Liberals across the province. The NDP candidate didn’t expect this outcome. “I’m surprised at how it turned out provincially and I

am surprised here that there’s a little more distance between me and Rich Coleman,” Fort Langley-Aldergrove NDP candidate Shane Dyson said. “I would have thought it would have been much closer.” Dyson said the Liberal victory came because the BC Conservatives crumbled and enough Tory supporters voted Liberal to give the win. The other key reason for the results, he said, was the negative campaigning. “The Liberals ran a very negative campaign, defining Adrian [Dix, NDP leader] over a long term,” Dyson said.

Volunteers watched quietly as the surprise Liberal victory became clear.

B.C. election

B.C. election

Tory leader fires parting shots John Cummins lashed out at the Liberals and NDP and promised the Conservatives will not quit. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

BC Conservative leader John Cummins was defiant in defeat Tuesday night. He lost not only the Langley riding where he ran against incumbent Mary Polak, but by 10 p.m. not a single Conservative MLA had been declared elected or leading. He delivered a rousing speech to the volunteers who had gathered in his Douglas Crescent campaign office, playing off the questions of reporters gathered to hear his concession. Asked why voters had again picked Liberal leader Christy Clark to lead the province, Cummins replied “I couldn’t begin to tell you.” He “I would only be slammed his pleased if both of former federal colleague them were run out of Stockwell town.” Day for supJohn Cummins porting the Liberals, said the Liberals will be more beholden to the big interests that have funded their campaign than to British Columbians, and said that he was no happier to see them in power than he would have been the NDP. “I would only be pleased if both of them were run out of town,” Cummins said of the NDP and Liberals. He blamed the election results on fear. “This was not choosing Christy Clark,” he said. “This was fear of the NDP.” “It’s been a tough road, with somewhat meager resources,” said Cummins. “I want to assure them that we will continue the fight,” Cummins said to volunteers for BC Conservatives. “I just want to assure you all that we’re here for the long haul.” He said he is not planning to resign his position as leader of the Conservatives, but acknowledged that there will be a leadership review in the fall, and if he is asked to step aside by the party membership, he will do so. Cummins congratulated Polak for winning the riding “in a substantial way.”

Voting not taken for granted

Annie Chen visited the polling place at Langley Secondary School on Tuesday to watch volunteers do their work. The 48-year-old Langley resident immigrated to Canada three years ago from Guangzhou, southern China’s largest city, and has never voted before. She says she enjoys watching democracy in action, and added that voting “is very important for people. We need to express our opinions.”

Green Wally Martin says he wants to keep building the Green Party. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Wally Martin may not have won a seat on Tuesday, but the Green Party candidate for Wally Martin Langley was not singing the Green blues. “I think we did pretty good, actually,” said the hotel owner and former homebuilder. Martin took 2,298 votes, for 9.39 per cent of the ballots cast, an increase from 2009 when Ron Abgrall represented the party. He was also pleased to see Andrew Weaver become the first Green Party MLA elected in B.C., in Oak Bay-Gordon Head Lisa David on Vancouver Island. Green “I think that’s exciting, it’s a breath of fresh air,” said Martin. Asked if he planned to continue with the party, one he joined officially just before the election, Martin said yes. He’s been talking to people about becoming more active and building a stronger Green party in the Langleys, he said. While Martin came in fourth behind Liberal, NDP, and Conservative candidates, he may have spent the least amount of money per vote. “I’m definitely under a hundred bucks,” he said of his campaign budget. “I think I’m around 50 bucks.” His signs were recycled and stood on old lawn chairs, and most of his campaign was door to door and talking to people on the street. Martin, who said he’d like to see all political donations registered online as they are handed over to parties, didn’t accept any money he was offered. That should make his post-election disclosure forms fairly simple to fill out. In Fort Langley-Aldergrove, Lisa David ran for the Greens, having joined and signed up as a candidate when it became clear there was no one else willing to step forward. The Fort resident garnered 7.48 per cent of the vote.

He noted it’s a 60- to 70year-old road on the edge of a deep ravine. In 2008, it cost the Township $150,000 to shore up a section of embankment, one of two areas that have been rebuilt in the last decade. The closure represents Township staff doing their due diligence, said Councillor Charlie Fox. He noted that after there was a road-blocking mudslide on 264th Avenue last year during heavy rains, many were asking if the Township monitors steep embankments around its roads. The closure is an example of that kind of monitoring, he said. Coun. Kim Richter suggested referring the matter to Township staff to look at a number of options, such as ways to reduce or remove truck traffic or otherwise make the road safer for local residents. The council agreed unanimously.

Wilson noted that residents are having to go the long way around, taking about 10 extra minutes to get in and out of their neighbourhood. He is also worried about emergency access, noting that RCMP officers tried to get through recently but had to turn around. The problem, Wilson believes, is dump trucks that use the area frequently. “We can’t seem to stop trucks,” he said. Dump trucks towing pup trailers have even gone down the partially closed road, only to have to painstakingly back up when it became clear the road was fully blocked, Wilson said. “Since it’s been closed, I’ve seen three trucks back up,” he said. Ramin Seifi, the Township’s manager of community development, said engineers are working as fast as they can to get results on the road’s safety issues.

Miss BC hopeful aids others A Langley teenager hopes to compete for the Miss B.C. title by raising money for Cops for Cancer. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Matthew Claxton/Langley Advance

Alexandria Kwiatkowski has been giving back to a community that’s given her a lot.

An Aldergrove teen hoping to become the next Miss B.C. spent the first full week of May hammering away on a construction crew. Alexandria Kwiatkowski, 18, took some time from her studies at UFV to work on the Extreme Home Repair crews rebuilding a local home for a family in need. For Kwiatkowski, it’s not just a chance to do some volunteer work. She has seen the changes that a rebuilt house can make, because her family was the recipient three years ago. “It changed everything,” she said. “The quality of your life just amplifies so much.” At age 15, Kwiatkowski was living a very different life. Her health was not good, she says. With severe asthma, exacerbated by mold in the home her family couldn’t afford to renovate, she made frequent trips to the hospital. “It’s just so scary. You just don’t know what’s going to happen,” she said. A year before her family was

Opinion

LangleyAdvance

Vote numbers need leadership The people have spoken… or at least, slightly more than half of them have. And therein lies the real tragedy of Tuesday’s election results – that, and the apparent lack of understanding of what it has all been about. About 52 per cent of B.C. residents eligible to vote bothered. And 48 per cent stayed home – despite all Elections BC did to stir up an understanding of the importance of getting involved in the process, and to make that process as easily accessible as possible to even the laziest of voters. The pundits and political backroom strategists will conspicuously rend their garments and gnash their teeth over the disparity between pollsters’ predictions and what actually fell out of the ballot boxes. And there will be much ado about “voter apathy” or “voter fatigue” or other such euphemisms that sidestep the real responsibility for the poor participation rate in our fading democracy: a lack of real choices. We thank all the candidates who, bless their hearts, offered their services, often at great personal cost, to their communities and their province. And we congratulate the winners. But we are left in awe at the leadership that fell so far short of the mark. Christy Clark, of all people, should not take Tuesday night’s BC Liberal win as an endorsement, but rather she should recognize it as a reprieve (especially since she was not able to inspire the confidence of voters in her own riding). Her attack ads against NDP leader Adrian Dix were clearly effective. But realistically, he was an easy target. Green leader Jane Sterk may have offered idealism, but was unable to convince anyone she has a real, comprehensive vision. And John Cummins was unable to put a credible right wing alternative on the table. Many of those who bothered to vote merely voted for the devil they knew. All of Elections BC’s hard work will be for naught, until eligible voters believe they can choose real leadership. – B.G.

Heritage

Honour pioneers on schools Dear Editor, Many newcomers to Langley will likely be unfamiliar with the fact that Fort Langley is the birthplace of B.C., and that there is a statute on the B.C. books representing that information, called the Douglas Day Act. The Fort Langley National Historic Site re-enacts the Douglas Day proclamation every year on its anniversary, Nov. 19. What is even more important is that Langley has held a Douglas Day Banquet to honour its own pioneers for more than 50 years – people who have helped establish Langley into the thriving and vibrant community it is today. For that reason, it is extremely disappointing to me, a resident born and raised in Langley, that no consideration

has been given to naming any new school in the Willoughby area in honour of a local pionto the eer. Langley Township has a rich heritage like no other community in B.C., one of the first municipalities incorporated in 1873. It is important that our children honour and remember the individuals and families who settled Langley, so their contributions are never lost. Our school board should take a leadership role in this regard, teaching children the importance of Langley’s heritage so that its significant history is never lost. Naming schools in honour of our pioneers is one important way to do this. It is disappointing that greater significance is not given to honouring our past. Alice Johnson, Willoughby

Metro Vancouver

Langleys pay for more than they get Dear Editor, Why are we involved with Metro Vancouver? It is time for the Langleys to opt out. We are helping to pay off the West Coast Express, the Canada and Millennium Lines, and the Evergreen Line, and now there’s talk of a $3 billion underground line to UBC to serve 50,000 people – and we are not benefiting from any of this. Surrey Mayor Diane Watts wants to service her

city with rapid transit, and she is right. She feels other parts of the region aren’t going to want to pay for infrastructure south of the Fraser where they don’t live. I agree. We are paying for rapid transit everywhere but our area. We are paying a gas tax, a property tax, plus the subsidies the province kicks in. They want to also enact a regional sales tax, a carbon

Cold record makes no sense

Dear Editor, A few days ago, I heard on the TV weather cast that Manitoba had just experienced its coldest winter in more than 100 years. Also, the meteorologists tell us that we had a record heat/or cold 40 or 50 years back, etc. I wondered how our global-warming extremists explain this? Does anybody know? David J.

tax, a road-pricing tax, and a vehicle levy which will hit the people who have to use their cars to get from point A to point B, such as all the citizens of the Langleys. I think it is time we joined the two Langleys into one city and went the way Abbottsford has gone. They have a good transit system, without the taxes I have noted above. I have been asked by outside interests why we are in Metro Vancouver – what is the value of participating in this monstrosity of a black hole money pit? They will never get it right. It’s been 30 years and they are still pumping money down that dark hole with no end in sight. Wake up, Langley. Stand up and say, enough of this. Will Ramage, Langley

B.C. election

Polak chaired book-banning board Dear Editor, Todd Hauptman [Polak’s campaign manager quits, May 9, Langley Advance] was a teen and possibly politically out of touch when Mary Polak chaired Surrey School Board. An issue arose in 1997 that ran to at least 2002. She was chair when the board voted 4-2 to censor its teachers. Surrey teachers quite properly attempted to introduce the two-dad, two-mom family concept to their elementary students. It was to be accomplished in story-book form, about two-mom and two-dad families. One teacher, James Chamberlain, chose to take the board to court. He went all the way

through the Supreme Court of Canada, at huge cost to Surrey taxpayers and to Chamberlain and BC Teachers’ Federation. In the end, student education prevailed. The Supreme Court held that

a local school board could not impose its religious values by refusing to permit the use of books that sought to promote tolerance of same-sex relationships. Larri Woodrow, Walnut Grove

B.C. election

Polak has key traits for MLA

Dear Editor, I was rather surprised by Jeff Munroe’s take on Todd Hauptman’s resignation from Mary Polak’s campaign. [Polak wrong about homosexual ‘sin’, May 9 Letters, Langley Advance]. Mr. Munroe charged Ms. Polak with being insensitive. He went so far as to insinuate that, by supporting her with a vote, I would be guilty of failing to help stem teen suicide. I find that rather offensive. Ms. Polak is both intelligent and caring. Even Mr. Hauptman seems to agree with this. Those are key traits that I look for in an MLA to represent our community.

A five-storey condo development in Langley City should help clean up a continentious area. by Heather Colpitts

hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

Langley City council agenda

Langley City approved rezoning an island of land in the area of 201st Street and 53rd Avenue to allow for a five-storey 90-unit condo development. During the public hearing on the higher density rezoning application May 13, neighbours voiced their concerns about the area. Their main concerns focus on the lands the Walnut Grove-based developer WestStone Properties purchased several years ago in the area that includes Michaud Crescent. Barbara Scott is a 40-year resident who like the several others who spoke at the meeting voiced concerns about the derelict properties that have fallen into disrepair. “It could almost be called a slum,” she said. Some vacant properties have been damaged by squatters while others were rented out and have not been maintained. There were also complaints about the vermin that has shown up. Scott and others say they’ve talked to the developer and the City about the problems. “We haven’t felt heard at all to this point,” she said. The company along with the architect met with the disgruntled residents after the City council meeting. President Dale Regehr explained that the project hasn’t gone ahead before now because of various factors, including the slumping housing market, not being able to obtain all the lands needed to proceed and trying to plan projects in ways that allow the projects to be profitable.

As well he said lenders and financial institutions assess every aspect of a development before, during and after construction. WestStone built the nearby Sonnet building as well as Serenade on Douglas Crescent. Serenade sales have been less than hoped for and some of the units are being rented out. Residents said they were concerned this new development would become an apartment building but Regehr said they will be strata units. Construction, once it begins, is expected to take about 16 months. The units will range from 585 square feet to over 1,000, and were designed to get a mixed demographic into the complex. There is a two-storey common building with amenities (likely a library, exercise room, games room, media room) as well as an outdoor play area and green areas on the property. WestStone was required to give up some lands around the permiter of the project so the roadways could be made wider. The project is also providing 1.2 parking spots per unit with 18 for visitors and 110 for tenants. There will also be street parking. A current lack of parking in the vicinity was another of the concerns expressed during

the public hearing. Because the building will be fire storeys, the Building Code requires extra measures. The exterior will be clad in non-flammable material and there will even be dry sprinklers on the outdoor balconies as well as inside each unit. Regehr said the goal is to have the houses his company owns, such as those in the Michaud area, rented out to bring in some income until the construction can begin but squatters can quickly make a place uninhabitable. At only four square miles in size, Langley City is building up since it can’t build out. This area is in the process of going from single family homes to high density structures. “We’re a community in transition,” noted Mayor Peter Fassbender. He encouraged residents to continue to communicate with the City about unsightly properties and explained that the City has a variety of steps and processes it must use under the law to deal with such sites.

Barbecue pays off Younger customers loved the paper penguins (sold by donation), while adults seemed more content to devour the food at last Saturday’s fundraising barbecue held at both M&M Meat Shops in Langley. While attendance might have been down at the Willowbrook location, store owners Jim and Karen Hurkett were elated to see all the folks who did come out to support the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada. Jim was particularly grateful to the volunteers from CCF who helped host the event. Meanwhile, up in Walnut Grove, attendance came in around the same as last year, with close to 300 people stopping off for a bite. Store owner Lynn Brown was grateful the promised rain held off for the event. Overall, stores across the country this year raised $1.2 million for the cause. That’s an impressive number. Kudos.

A special anti-gang police team uncovered four sophisticated marijuana grow operations worth millions that included a vast underground greenhouse hidden by a paddock and a high-end doghouse in the Hatzic Valley area east of Mission. On Friday, officers with the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of British Columbia (CFSEU-BC) executed search warrants, confiscating up 10,000 marijuana plants and expensive equipment from four rural and remote properties. The sites are in the 10000 block and 14000-block Sylvester Road, 12000-block Dewdney Trunk Road, and 13000-block De Graff Road. Police seized live plants ranging from seedlings to mature plants several feet tall and in bud, plus 200 pounds of dried marijuana, estimated to worth between $5 million and $10 million. Another $1 million worth of equipment and $20,000 cash were also seized. “We received a tip several months ago, and we believe that’s how long (the grow-ops) have been in place, since about the beginning of the year,” said Sgt. Lindsey Houghton, CFSEU-BC’s spokesperson. “Experienced officers describe it as one of the most sophisticated grow-ops they have ever seen.” Police believe the grow-ops are linked to the Hells Angels motorcycle gang. The operators installed the latest technology and “extremely high levels of security” to conceal them from police as well as rivals who may want to steal the goods, said Houghton. The De Graff Road grow-op is an underground bunker that officers first thought was a horse stable and paddock but was “in effect, just a movie set,” he said. The hatch was hidden under straw bales in the barn. “A fake dog house made out of beautiful wood” and a fire pit camouflaged the venting for the underground operation. Each site was operated by a natural gas generator worth an estimated $100,000 each and “capable of providing power to a small town.” These were removed by a large crane. Officers are still counting and cataloging items this week, said Houghton. Even after investigators hauled away what they could on “flatbeds, vans, whatever we could find,” some equipment was left on site and destroyed there so the items were no longer serviceable, he added. In total, five men were arrested. Two men, ages 33 and 32, as they tried to flee the De Graff Road bunker on foot, a Burnaby man, 33, found inside the 14000-block Sylvester Road grow-op, and 34-year old man of no fixed address who tried to run from the 10000-block Sylvester Road. A Langley man, 34, believed to be the caretaker of the grow-ops, was arrested at a fifth site in the 4500block 206th Avenue in Langley. All were released from custody and may face drug-related charges. The RCMP Lower Mainland Emergency Response Team, K-9 teams and the pot-seeking Surrey Green team assisted. The CFSEU-BC is the province’s largest integrated police force, drawing members from the RCMP and 14 law agencies to focus specifically on anti-gang activities.

Robocalls banned for Conservative campaign The BC Conservative campaign used automated phone calls in violation of election rules. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

The BC Conservatives were told to halt robocalls in violation of election advertising rules, after Langley residents complained. Telephone calls encouraging voters to cast a ballot for Conservative leader John Cummins, who ran in the Langley riding, were going out the morning of May 14, despite a ban on election day advertising. “I ask you to join me in supporting Conservative leader John Cummins’ campaign,” says the pre-recorded message. The message talks about supporting children and grandchildren, and getting B.C. “back to basics.” It also gives the phone number of the campaign office located on Douglas Crescent in Langley City. Jeff Bridge, manager for the provincial BC Conservative campaign, initially told the Langley Advance the messa“That’s not ges were going out province-wide playing fair.” and are simply reminders to get Diana Sampson out to vote, not advertising. He first said the automated calls were within the rules, and noted that the messages are intended to go towards voters who have expressed that they may vote for the party. It’s a common practice, said Bridge, adding that he got a call at the Conservative office in Langley from Mary Polak’s Liberal campaign Tuesday morning with a “get out the vote” message. However, Elections BC begged to differ. Greg Macdonald, a senior electoral finance reviewer, said he called the Conservative campaign and asked them to stop the ads, and was told by a campaign official that they will be halted. “It is elections advertising, and we’ve informed them,” Macdonald said just before noon on May 14. The Elections Act in B.C. reads: “An individual or organization must not publish, broadcast or transmit to the public election advertising in an electoral district on general voting day before the close of all of the voting stations in the electoral district.” An autodialled message encouraging people to get out to vote should not mention any party or candidate names, said Macdonald. Parties do use autodiallers to get people out to the polls. They can also do person-to-person calls, which are not considered advertising and can mention parties and candidates, Macdonald said. Bridge said after speaking to Elections BC, he has sent out an order to cease and desist the calls. “If you read the guide, it’s not clear at all,” Bridge said of the guidelines. He said other parties are also using party or candidate names in their election day robocalls. Langley resident Diana Sampson told the Langley Advance she received the call at 10:24 a.m. “That surprised me,” she said. “That’s not playing fair,” she said of the Conservative phone call. Sampson also complained about the calls to Elections BC.

Langley Emergency Program. Boaters should be aware that the water is flowing fast, and walkers, joggers, and dog walkers along the river’s edge should be cautious, said Sherlock. Last year, a sudden surge of snowmelt sent river levels at the Mission gauge to 6.4 metres, putting several low-lying roads and many farm fields in Fort Langley, Derby, and Glen Valley under water. The Kwantlen First Nation’s band office had water in its basement on MacMillan Island. Thanks to a very cold spring and early summer, the high water hit at the end of June.

Macdonalds

While flooding is not expected to impact Langley, river forecasters and emergency planners are keeping an eye on the Fraser River. The unseasonable warm weather of the first two weeks of May, followed by rain over the weekend, caused creeks and rivers in the Interior to rise rapidly.

That has seen the Fraser swell even in the Lower Mainland. Between May 7 and May 14, river levels doubled from roughly 2.5 meters to more than five metres at the Mission gauge. The BC River Forecast Centre has issued a high streamflow advisory for the Fraser, including Lower Mainland areas. However, the flows from tributaries into the Fraser are expected to slow down and decline this week thanks to lower temperatures, the centre said. Flooding is not expected in Langley Township, said Ginger Sherlock, coordinator for the

ngie Quaale loves watching someone who has never eaten “real” barbecue have their first taste. “It’s addictive and when that light goes on and someone understands it, it’s magic,” said Quaale, the owner of Langley’s Well Seasoned gourmet food store and organizer of the second annual Cloverdale Rodeo Cowboy Cookoff & Rib Fest happening this weekend at the Cloverdale fairgrounds. “Barbecue is growing in Canada. In the eight years I have been involved, it has grown from two competitions to 10-plus, with more than 30 teams,” said the Cowboy Cookoff producer and self-proclaimed B.C. Queen of the Q. While barbecuing is admittedly a passion for Quaale, she said it’s the people in these events who keep her involved – people like fellow Langleyite April Lunn and her team of Porkaholics, who are returning to compete again in this year’s event.

May Day celebrations go back hundreds of years in Europe, where the coming of spring was celebrated on the First of May. Langley has a long history of May Day festivities and events, with this year marking Langley’s official 91st May Day celebration. The birthday of Queen Victoria has been celebrated in Canada since 1845, when parliament decided to make her birthday, May 24, an official holiday to celebrate the monarchy. After Queen Victoria died in 1901, it was decided by law that the Monday before May 25 would be known as Victoria Day – a day to celebrate ties to the British Empire and Victoria’s role as the “Mother of Confederation.” Victoria Day, and the holiday associated with it, became the time that British Columbians celebrate May Day. For many years there were two May Day celebrations – and two May Queens – one in Langley Prairie, and the other in Fort Langley, where the event is still being held today.

continued on page A32…

It’s actually unclear, though, when May Day celebrations were first held in Langley. An early photo in the collection of the Langley Centennial Museum shows Anne Berry, daughter of J.W. and Lydia Berry of Belmont Farm, being crowned as May Queen in approximately 1915. She would have been about 12 years old at the time. Another article in The Weekly Columbian newspaper, out of New Westminster, reports that a May Day Social was held in 1905. A 1966 Langley Advance newspaper article notes that

Langley’s first May Day Queen was Alice Harper, crowned at Langley Prairie in 1921. However, an article in the British Columbian noted that Langley Prairie’s 1923 May Queen, Helen Lee of Willoughby, was the first May Queen in the municipality. Fort Langley’s May Day celebrations started in 1923, when Nellie Houston was crowned May Day Queen. May pole dancing was an important part of early events, and school children from around the municipality would compete. Accuracy, appearance, style of dance, and ribbons used were scored. West Langley School’s May pole group, pictured here in 1935, performed quite well at Langley Prairie events, winning first place in 1932.

What do to, what to do Take part in nine decades of history as Fort Langley hosts the May Day Parade and Celebrations this coming Monday. The 91st annual May Day is hosted by the Fort Langley Business Improvement Association. Festivities include a pancake breakfast, May Pole dancing, rides and vendors in Fort Langley Park, the Fort Langley Lions chicken BBQ at the Mary Avenue Food Court, free admission to Fort Langley National Historic Site all day, displays and activities at the BC Farm Museum all day, clothing swap and exhibits open at the Langley Centennial Museum all day The Fort Langley Evangelical Free Church is inviting people to stop by for a free hot dog and drink after the parade. The church serving up from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is at 8870 Glover Rd. The church is also offering that all-important pit stop – the use of its washrooms that day. And folks from the church will even be around to help with parking on this very busy day.

Sunshine adds power to flowers Dear Anne

“Geraniums in two planters on my south-facing balcony have wintered well and still have blooms. Is it too late to cut them back? If it’s not too late, how should it be done.”

I

Clare Daem, via email

t’s not too late to cut them back. They’ll grow rapidly now warmer weather is here and cutting back will give you a more shapely plant that will flower more prolifically. But those new shoots will set buds and bloom somewhat later than normal. If you don’t cut it back, your geranium will keep on flowering with blooms on the end of leggy stems. Those stems will lengthen and get more gangly as summer continues. Cutting back is done by pruning half to one-third the length of the stems. Just sever them slightly above the leaf joint closest to the height you choose. Each joint is a raised area that circles the stem. Cutting just above a joint triggers dormant stem buds in the joint. Any leaves on the joint should be removed to give the dormant buds extra stimulation.

entering your crocus area? Separating them and planting them again would be very time-consuming, even if you had enough space. And unless you can plant them in a well-drained, sun-drenched spot, you’d probably get the same problem. But your other bulbs must be protected from extreme competition. If you do have a small, sunnier spot, it would be best to separate and replant just a few crocuses. The others may have to be composted. Dear Anne,

“Last year my Fritillaria imperialis (Crown Imperial or Kaiser’s Crown) produced numerous beautiful flowers. This year, the plant has failed to produce any flowers. Could you

ritillaria imperialis is not especially difficult to grow in B.C. – but it can be difficult to flower, unless it’s located in perfect conditions. You’re not alone in having problems with this species. This fritillaria needs a great deal of sun, warmth, and rich soil, and very good drainage. The top of the bulb is slightly concave – that’s why it’s best to plant fritillaria bulbs on their side, so rainwater won’t pool in the top and cause them to rot. The increasing rain in recent B.C. winters has created constantly moist soil over very long periods. That has been very hard on any bulb that needs superb drainage. It would be a good idea to fertilize your fritillarias with a high-phosphorous fertilizer. Do it at about the time you would normally have expected them to flower.

Before hearing loss gets to the point of not being able to hear words distinctly or having to ask people to repeat themselves, stop by Crystal Vision & Hearing Centre. Centrally located in St. Andrew’s Plaza at 20611 Fraser Highway, the Langley location of this family-owned business with fourteen locations offers medical eye health exams, free hearing screenings and free sight testing. Manager Jennifer Howe said, “We need to get the word out there that hearing is very important to get checked even if you don’t think you have hearing loss.” Hearing screenings should be done every couple of years so a client has a record of hearing history, something to check against if hearing loss begins. Howe added that there are prevention strategies, people don’t have to wait until hearing loss is noticeable or irreversible. “A lot of people are not proactive because they think their hearing is going to come back.” At Crystal Vision & Hearing, staff work with clients to get them the products that are right for them. Howe noted that the owner, Steve Wiens, and his father both have hearing loss so they stay on top of the latest technologies and equipment available. Crystal Vision & Hearing has a mobile unit

that goes to trade shows and community events to help spread awareness and do on-site hearing screenings. The Langley store also opens its doors to school groups, like

the kids at Douglas Park Elementary. Crystal Vision & Hearing added hearing services to its optical operation several years ago to make it easier and convenient for customers. And because Crystal Vision & Hearing is not owned by the eyewear or hearing manufacturers like most firms, the emphasis is on serving the customer and meeting the

needs of each individual. “We don’t have high pressure sales,” she said. Howe noted that Crystal Vision & Hearing

has a price match guarantees. The store also works with their customers, that can mean filling out third-party billing paperwork for WCB, Veterans’ Affairs, First Nations coverage or income assistance. There’s even a 90-day

satisfaction offer and the store will help people who may have financial issues. Howe explained that could also mean helping them get quality used equipment, for instance. Open 9:00 am to 5:30 pm Monday to Saturday, Crystal Vision & Hearing offers a range of frames, including designer styles as well as a variety of high quality lenses (reading, sunglasses, bifocals, progressives, etc.), a one-hour lab to create the eyewear, and optometrist services on-site. Coming up on June 1 at the Langley store is Crystal Vision & Hearing’s Customer Appreciation Event when people can get in on hot dogs, prizes and deals on Guess eyewear. Crystal also uses social media (Facebook and Twitter) to foster increased awareness and provide updates on services and products. The website www.cvoh.ca also has lots of information about eye and ear health. Get in touch with Crystal Vision & Hearing at 604-510-5142.

eritage buildings are not just local landmarks, they represent history, while adding character to neighbourhoods. That is why Langley Township recognizes the commitment of owners of registered heritage sites make to preserving, restoring, or adapting historic places, through the Community Heritage Register Plaque Program. This year, owners of the Cummings residence in Murrayville, the Matheson house in Willoughby, and the Hogben residence in Fort Langley were honoured. “These buildings have played an important role in our community’s development, and will continue to do so in the future, thanks to the effort and dedication shown by their owners,” said Township Mayor Jack Froese. “They have preserved a significant part of Langley’s history, and the result can be appreciated by the entire community.”

Over the years, major alterations were made, including additions to three sides of the building. The home was added to the Township’s Heritage Inventory in 2009, but in 2011, a fire destroyed the additions and the north side of the building. BUMP Holdings had recently acquired the site.

Residents take charge of BC Senior Games Several community volunteers will organize the BC Seniors Games.

Exceptional athletes who know that age is just a number will be coming to Langley for the 2014 BC Seniors Games and a team of volunteers has been chosen to ensure the event is a great success. The Township and the City have appointed members to the board of directors for the 2014 BC Seniors Games Society.

President: Milt Kruger • Vice president: Michael Jackstien • Administration director: Gordon Zacher • Ceremonies co-director: Susan Magnusson • Communications director: vacant • Friends of the Games director: Anton Donkers • Medical Services director: Marlyn Graziano • Promotions director: Leah Chevallier • Protocol director: Howie Vickberg • Registration and results director: John Jones • Security director: Gary Bass • Special events Director: Carly Davies • Sport director: Tom Watson • Transportation director: John Cameron

The society is responsible for planning and organizing the BC Seniors Games, which will be held in the Langleys from Sept. 9-13, 2014. Athletes aged 55 plus will be competing in a variety of sports ranging from badminton, bowling, and soccer, to track and field, mountain biking, and golf. “This is a very exciting, prestigious event and we are thrilled it is in such good hands,” said Township Mayor Jack Froese. “Langley has a reputation for being an exceptional sports-tourism destination, and the commitment, resources, and knowledge this board of directors brings to the 2014 Seniors Games will definitely ensure its success.” The directors of the Seniors Games Society know what it takes to stage major events. The members have served as directors for Langley Township’s 2010 BC Summer Games, worked with Langley’s Spirit of BC Committee during the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, and been instrumental in events such as Langley’s annual Relay for Life. “The City of Langley

ealthy body, mind and living are achievable synergies dependent on many factors. One of the most important is good dentofacial health. Good oral health not only reduces systemic disease but allows for a better nutritional diet since one does not need to limit types of food that are enjoyed. This article is focused on oral health. It briefly highlights our patient’s journey towards reaching her goal of a long term functional, aesthetic and stable oral health. Our patient is an active lady who originally was concerned about loose upper and lower partials and teeth, which made chewing food difficult and made her mouth sore. While many solutions are possible, one the most predictable and effective methods involves placement of dental implants where the teeth roots used to be. This allows attachment and support of the denture to the implants. In many cases after careful planning, the implants can be placed and the denture attached on the same day, allowing for a very comfortable functional healing and adaptation phase. Worn dentures or infected teeth, are difficult to chew with, are unhealthy, cause sore spots and can also make a person look older than he or she is. This is because after years of wearing a denture or

having infected teeth, the jaw bone shrinks and also the denture wears thinner. Both of these cause a shortening of the face and lip height which increases facial wrinkles. When a new denture on implants is made, in many cases the facial height is restored, reducing wrinkles, restoring the face to its original shape and making the person look younger. Sometimes a failing or loose denture if not dealt with effectively and thoughtfully, sets off a domino effect that can cause headaches, ringing in the ears and facial pain. At our practice before we rush to fix a problem, a comprehensive patient interview along with pictures, radiographs and a complete examination of the head and neck is conducted. This process tends to start a discussion that with the patient’s input, clarifies the best possible outcome he or she truly wishes to achieve in the long term. The dental team’s experience in delivering such care is crucial.

WHY THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IS UNIQUE A discussion and dessert evening

St. Joseph’s Church Hall, 20676 Fraser Hwy., Langley

Our patient’s dentofacial health was on a deteriorating path due to many infected teeth, worn dentures and a shrinking bone base. After our discussions, we completed an implant supported denture which not only allows our patient to chew food that she enjoys (and could not eat before) as well as giving the added benefit of a “face lift” due to the new denture’s proper position and height.

Chasing the ‘high’ A Walnut Grove musician debuts his new country band Friday. by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@langleyadvance.com

W

alnut Grove’s Shawn Meehan has been chasing the music “high” since his teens. Now, at age 37, and with the advent of a new duo and the release of a single co-written with well-known pop musician Carly-Rae Jepsen, he could achieve it. Meehan and Jacky Mae make up Me & Mae, a new Canadian country duo that debuts in the Lower Mainland on Friday with a show at Joe’s Apartment on Granville Street in Vancouver. The pair met last year, when Meehan’s band was headlining at a music festival. “Jacky Mae came up on stage and sang with us. I was blown away by her voice and performance, so I developed a professional relationship with her and eventually formed Me & Mae,” he explained. Influenced by everything from Johnny Cash to Dolly Parton, he said, Me & Mae (www.meandmae. com) is not afraid to push boundaries on the country genre, and has something that everyone can enjoy. But this wasn’t Meehan’s baptism into music. In fact, far from it. Meehan met his stepfather when he was 11 years old, describing him

as a “big musical influence” and his first guitar teacher. “I played my first gig in my early teens and I’ve been chasing that high ever since! I knew then what I wanted to do with the rest of my life,” Meehan told the Langley Advance. He went on to study music. He is a vocalist who has fronted many different bands through the years. Armed with a minor degree in music, his career has consisted of touring with different bands, writing and doing studio work, and even teaching guitar lessons. One of his pupils just happens to have been Jepsen, before her smash hit Call Me Maybe hit the airwaves. The pair shared the same manager, and during the lessons agreed to collaborate on a song. He tells how he had written a song, but realized the lyrics weren’t quite right. He asked his pupil to lend a hand in perfecting the words. “Love Me Leave Me Lonely was written a few years ago. I was looking for some help with the lyrics and asked Carly-Rae in our guitar

lessons if she could add in some lyrics, which she did.” It wasn’t long after that Jepsen’s career took off. Expressing his gratitude for Jepsen’s support, Meehan is looking forward to seeing his single “make its mark in music history,” too. After meeting up with Mae, Meehan said, all the ducks started falling into a line for him. Me & Mae released what he expects could be a similar smash hit, Love Me Leave Me Lonely, earlier this month, and coming off a tour of Alberta, they now expect to spend the rest of the year travelling the province, performing. “We perform as much as possible in various locations,” he said. “I’m very grateful with how much support Me & Mae is getting, considering we are a brand new band,” he said.

Thunder opens season Sunday …continued from page A33 Goodwin put up 26 goals and 46 points in just 13 games with the New Westminster Salmonbellies juniors in 2012 and added 20 points in six playoff games. “We’re going to give him every opportunity to show what he has,” Rhodes said, of Goodwin. “We know he’s a good, young player, and we’ll give him a chance to perform, but as always, we’re going to put best players on the floor.” The Thunder open their season on the road this Sunday, May 19, when they visit Planet Ice Maple Ridge to face the host Burrards. Game time is 6:45 p.m. The Thunder hosts its home opener this Wednesday, May 22, against the Coquitlam Adanacs, the team Langley defeated in six games in the best-of-seven

WLA championship series last summer. Opening faceoff for the Thunder’s home debut at the Langley Events Centre is 7:45 p.m. “We have the same philosophy,” Rhodes said. “We worry about ourselves. We’re a hungry bunch this year. Success has made our guys stronger and more experienced.” The Thunder will start their season minus their head coach. Rod Jensen is serving a 10-game suspension doled out by the Canadian Lacrosse Association, stemming from an incident that occurred during the Mann Cup in Peterborough, Ont. in September 2012. In Jensen’s absense, the Thunder assistant coaches including Rhodes, Ryan Williams, and Fred Klomp will handle the duties behind the bench.

BOULTON, Edna Jan 18, 1916 - Mar 10, 2013 Rejoice in that day, and jump for joy, because your reward is great in heaven. Luke 6:23 Born in London England Mom grew up and became a nurse and served in the local hospitals during WW2. In 1954 she immigrated to Vermilion AB where she worked as a Health Nurse and Midwife. It was there she met our Father Bill, and was married October 8, 1954. She was an active member of St. Saviours Anglican church involved in WA, Altar guild, Little Helpers, and Junior Auxiliary. The family moved to BC in 1969 where she worked for Langley Home Help and was constantly helping people in need. In 1978 she and Dad retired to Victoria but mom continued to work as a home helper. She kept busy doing peer counselling, literacy tutoring, and knitting for leprosy and medical missions. She will be remembered by her many friends in the congregations of St. Philips and The Church of our Lord. In 2008 Mom and Dad returned to Langley to be near family and after 54 years of marriage Dad passed away. She is predeceased by Dad, her parents, and siblings. She is remembered fondly by her daughters Jane and Elizabeth (Colin) and grandchildren Amanda (Danny), Thomas, Sarah, James, Kathleen, great granddaughter Harmony and dearest friend Kathyrne Formo. Mom loved the Lord and her life was a testament to God’s faithfulness in the good times and the bad and now she is in God’s presence for eternity with family and friends. We would like to say a deep thank you to the staff and supporters of Manoah Manor who cared for mom and provided a loving and caring environment during her last years.
