Mary Bruhaug has a special place in her heart for our soldiers, past and present. The 91-year-old’s deep-seated connection to both the Canadian and British military forces dates back many decades. Bruhaug has been a legion member for the past 35 years and says she has never missed a poppy campaign. On Tuesday afternoon, she sat with her daughter Janice Myer, selling poppies by donation at a table set up near the Willowbrook Shopping Centre’s west entrance. Her late husband Jarl, who died in 1995, was a Second World War veteran. Jarl, who enlisted with the Canadian Army in 1940 and served from 1942 to ’45, never went overseas. “The reason he didn’t go overseas was they called him an… alien because he was born in Norway, and because the Germans occupied Norway, so he was just kept in Canada,” Bruhaug said. “He used to do the map reading when they went out on manoeuvres and what not.” Bruhaug’s connection to the military dates back even further. Her dad Robert Patten served with the British army during the First World War. Patten served from 1914 to ’17. He was discharged because he was “gassed” Bruhaug shared, and was shot through the knee. Bruhaug’s oldest brother, Robert Patten Jr., served throughout the duration of the Second World War. “We came from England in 1927,” she recalled, “because he was a veteran and we were always taught to be very patriotic to our country – in England we were patriotic.” When she was five years old and attending kindergarten in her native England, Bruhaug and her classmates drew flags on slates. “We were brought up to be patriotic,” she said.

Langley Legion member Mary Bruhaug, 91, sold poppies by donation at Willowbrook Shopping Centre on Tuesday afternoon. Poppy sales fill Poppy Trust Funds to help ex-service members and their dependents, support drop-in centres for seniors and mealson-wheels services, provide bursaries for children and grandchildren of veterans, and offset costs of housing and care facilities for elderly and disabled persons.

But we don’t have the volunteers to do that, anymore. We just don’t have enough volunteers.” Bruhaug plans on attending the Remembrance Day ceremony at the Langley Legion. “My daughter and son-in-law always go, and I’ve got one grandson who never misses them,” she said. “When he was little I took him to all the Remembrance Day [ceremonies]. He’s married now, he’s got children, and he takes them to them.”

Remembrance Day

A poppy tattoo for his pals

As long as Canada continues to deploy soldiers to conflicts around the world, there will be veterans.

Heather Colpitts/Langley Advance

Sean Loucks had a poppy tattooed onto his arm, a constant reminder of fellow soldiers.

by Heather Colpitts

Sean Loucks sits in his Langley City living room, zipping around Google Maps. A few clicks, and from his couch the 33-year-old can see aerial maps of Afghanistan, the military compound near Kabul where he served as part of the Royal Canadian Regiment, and the King’s and Queen’s castles that bookend the compound of soldiers. He can point to new buildings that had been put up during his two tours or infrastructure that was rebuilt or built anew. That and his personal experiences there, with the Afghan people, are what convince him that Canada’s mission there was vital. Still Nov. 11 is a rough day, often no different than any other day because he can’t forget the buddies who didn’t survive and the ones who are dealing with physical and psychological aftermath. “I do have a poppy tattooed on my arm for that reason,” he said. His veteran’s licence plates means some Canadians buttonhole him into discussions about whether this nation should have become involved. Loucks maintains that he and other soldiers were abroad to help preserve Canadians’ right to hold whatever opinions they choose. He said sending the Canadian military into Afghanistan was a decision made by the politicians, not soldiers. “Having the kids going to school again [is a key milestone],” he said. “That’s a country where kids actually want to go to school.” Though Canada is scaling back involvement in Afghanistan, he thinks there will be lasting impacts. “I think that generation of kids that are able to remember the [pre- and post-war] difference… they’re going to be the ones that make the difference,” he said. He followed family members

Loucks, who grew up in Winnipeg, had his sights set on becoming a police officer but never having handled a gun was a strike against him. He decided to go into the military after a few years of service jobs to gain new skills. View photos with or

Soldiers such as Sean Loucks take more technology into the field, allowing them to stay connected with loved ones back home. So he signed up and was sent to Petawawa in Ontario in the autumn of 2000. After basic training in Quebec, battle school in Ontario and assignment to the infantry, he signed up for a three year contract. He thought he might end up being deployed to

the tail end of Canadian involvement in Bosnia. 9-11 changed everything for the Canadian military. He and his buddies had been out on exercises until the wee hours of Sept. 11, 2001. Instead of turning in, he decided to watch some TV and saw the carnage in the United States. Loucks grabbed his gear and reported to his superiors, assuming there would be imminent deployment. His superiors hadn’t seen what had happened. The military base was locked down, everyone was packed and ready to go on a moment’s notice and people were sleeping at their work stations for days. Canada initially sent the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry to Khandahar. Loucks contract was coming to an end and he verbally told superiors he was not going to re-enlist. He was part of a large contigent sent to Wainwright, Alta., for intensive training, which included living rough. It seems to have slipped his leaders minds that he hadn’t re-enlisted. During the Alberta training, he changed his mind. “I’ve never seen paperwork come so fast in my life,” he quipped. “They had a contract in front of me [in the bush] in an hour.” This time he signed up for four years. In August 2003, he was

deployed for the standard six month tour of duty in Afghanistan and returned Valentine’s Day 2004. “This is a new type of enemy,” he said. Unlike the conflicts that usually come to mind when people think of Remembrance Day, the war in Afghanistan featured no typical front lines. Homes, shops, streets could be the scenes of ambushes and combat. “The biggest thing was the hearts and minds [campaigning to win over the Afghan people],” he commented. He added that the Afghan people have had to struggle to survive for so long. That can mean helping the Western forces one day and the Taliban the next, if it gets them the necessities of life. Loucks said he recalls being very high strung when he first arrived. “It’s definitely sensory overload,” he said. “You start learning and talking to locals.” On his second tour of duty – February 2005 to August – he was in the operations centre with international forces. His knowledge from the first tour came in handy. Loucks recalls a typical day when explosions started going off near the operations centre. The new-to-Afghanistan commanders hunkered down, expecting to have to sound the alarms. He was able to explain to them that a non-governmental organization (NGO) was disposing of ordinance about three kilometres away, something it did every day at lunchtime. Loucks said technology helped keep soldiers connected to family and friends back home. There were 30-minute-per-week phone calls, but also internet/email access. That’s how he learned about the skewed perceptions of the folks back home. Based on media reports, they thought Canadian soldiers were under constant attack.

The Township of Langley is appealing a B.C. Supreme Court ruling that halted construction of a Fort Langley building that has faced intense opposition in the community. Work on the controversial Coulter Berry building stopped last week after a judge ruled its heritage permit was invalid. On Oct. 25, Justice Joel Groves handed down an oral judgment that set aside the heritage alteration permit that the Township of Langley had granted the development last November, saying it varied the lot density in an unacceptable manner. This week an in camera Township council meeting approved an appeal of that decision. After the meeting, Coun. Bob Long pointed out that he and Coun. David Davis voted against the appeal. “It’s not too late to have the building scaled down a little and re-issue the heritage alteration permit,” Long said. Though the judge has yet to release his written reasons, the municipality was required to file a challenge within 30 days. The civil suit against the township was filed in July by a local group called Fort Langley Residents for Sustainable Development. The three-storey mixed-use building by developer Eric Woodward is planned for the corner of Glover Road and Mavis Avenue. Its height and density exceeds what is allowed under the official com-

munity plan and building facade guidelines for the heritage conservation area. Township council voted 7-1 last November to amend the bylaws to permit a third storey on a strip zoned for two. An open house and two public hearings were held on the issue, with residents who opposed submitting a petition with 900 signatures, but the variance was approved. In a statement last week, Mayor Jack Froese said that “council made every effort to ensure all opinions were heard and that proper process was followed. Council’s decision was made in the best interest of the public at large, to benefit our entire community.”

The reality was far more bland. There was ever present danger but often days consisted of patrols and routine work in dessert heat while carrying packs that are routinely 60100 lbs. He returned to Canada on Remembrance Day 2005 and having switched to the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry, was sent to Shilo, Man., closer to Winnipeg. Loucks, a corporal at the time, went to work in training for a couple of years until his contract expired. If he re-enlisted, it would be for a 25-year stint. He opted for another path. In 2007, he came to B.C. for a friend’s wedding and never left, now working as a gasfitter and calling Langley home.

Looking back

Vet’s memories graphic

A Langley veteran offers his insight into the casualties of war. by Mike Harvey

Special to the Langley Advance

Remembrance Day fades into unimportance in the minds of most, as it is difficult to feel loss of people you never knew and only see on the TV screen. The larger conflicts grow dimmer as the years roll along, and any personal relationship to those men and women who gave their lives may be connected by the phrase that one’s grandfather served during D Day. Being of ancient vintage, my memories of the First and Second World and Korean Wars remain graphic. Both my parents served in the First Great War, my dad was an officer in the Royal Irish Rifles and was severely wounded at Gallipoli, and my mother trained horses for the cavalry and then became an ambulance driver. I was raised in a military milieu and was used to having brigadiers, colonels, and majors making social calls. When the Second World War broke out in 1939, many of my parents’ younger set rallied to the colours and vanished into the folds of the Royal Canadian Navy, the Royal Canadian Air Force, or numerous regiments in the army. With unpleasant regularity I heard that one or the other had been lost, wounded, or killed. But as these were older men or had been seniors in school, it didn’t make much of an impression. You have to see death or disfigurement before it strikes home. The first time I saw death was as a young corporal on a training exercise. The slit trenches were



SPECIALTY PIZZAS 2 Sm – $22.50 2 Med – $27.50 2 Lg – $33.50

dug about 30 feet apart. Each trench was connected to the other by a strand of wire attached to a tin can filled with a few stones. The middle trench was occupied by a corporal whose responsibility it was to signal the soldiers in the other trenches to stick a target of a man’s face above the parapet. He received his orders from the lieutenant in charge by the same way. “Targets up” was one sustained rattle which the corporal would relay to the trenches abreast of his location. Two rattles meant “targets down,” until the next group of infantry charged forward, dropped into firing position, and aimed for their target. “Cease operations” was three rattles, meaning it was safe to leave your trench. Exasperation showing on his face, the lieutenant shouted at me: “Pull the damned line again, Corporal.” I carried out my order at once, with no corresponding action occurring. “Maybe the wire has severed; go and check it,” I was ordered. I grabbed the wire and proceeded to the middle trench where the other corporal was located. The wire was in one piece, but Smith was slumped forward and obviously dozing, I thought. “Smitty,” I called, “wake up.” No reply. I jumped into the trench and pushed Smith’s face back against the earth. A neat little hole appeared in the middle of his forehead and blood was spattered everywhere. The conclusion drawn at the military enquiry was that Smith had peeked over the parapet at the wrong time, perhaps in a lull in the firing due to a rifle being jammed. There were many other FREE DELIVERY WITHIN THIS AREA

occasions when death was thrust into my mind: a paratrooper stuck on a tree and blasted by a machine gun; horribly wounded men accompanying me on a hospital train bound for a military hospital in Belgium… I learned that a boyhood companion had been lost in his bomber over Germany. A poor family that I knew lost any jest they had for living. Their one source of love and pride had been taken, and so every day for them was a day of remembrance. “In the morning and at the setting of the sun, we will remember them.”

Wanted auto thief pleads guilty, gets jail sentence The efforts of the Langley RCMP in battling auto theft paid off with a conviction for one car thief.

by Heather Colpitts

A Surrey man has been sentenced to jail and probation for a summertime incident when he rammed a police car in late July. Richard James Mantler, 43, was sentenced to jail time after pleading guilty to dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and obstruction. He was order to spend six months in

jail and serve two years probation. He was given a three year Criminal Code driving prohibition (in effect anywhere in Canada) and a 10-year B.C. driving prohibition. Mantler was in the number one spot of the police’s top 10 auto theft suspects list. “I am very pleased with our successes to date addressing these prolific property criminals,” commented Insp. Murray Power, the Langley operations support officer. “I believe that, due to our strategies, a 40 per cent reduction in auto theft from the five-year average has resulted, and a 22 per cent reduction since this time last year. Langley RCMP and in particular, the Street Enforcement

Unit will continue to focus their efforts on the apprehension and prosecution of these prolific property criminals.” On July 22, Surrey residents reported their vehicle had been stolen by their basement tenant. The vehicle, a red Mazda Miata, had been loaned to the tenant on July 21 with the understanding it would be returned later that evening. Statements were taken from the complainants and the vehicle was entered on police computer systems as stolen. On July 25, officers from Langley’s Street Enforcement Unit working in the downtown core observed a red Mazda (with damage to the driver’s door) enter a parking lot, conduct a U-turn and exit

the parking lot. The licence plate was queried and the officer discovered the vehicle was, in fact, stolen. Street Enforcement Unit officers followed the vehicle until it came to rest in the Kwantlen University parking lot. One of the officers activated his emergency equipment and (unmarked vehicle) pulled behind the Mazda to box it in. Mantler put the Mazda in reverse and drove directly into the police vehicle. He then jumped out of the driver’s side window and ran between some of the buildings. The officers gave chase and were able to catch up to Mantler. After a short struggle, he was taken into custody.

Honour’s worth beyond words

Remembrance Day comes once a year… but the veterans we honour on that day are with us all year round – and are just as deserving of honour every other day of the year as they are on November the 11th. We recently saw the passing of the last of the veterans of the First World War, and we are now witnessing dramatic thinning of the ranks of Second World War veterans. Like those of us lucky enough to have lived through a relatively fortunate and peaceful time, soldiers who have survived wartime (or peace-keeping) service must also eventually grow old and come to the end of their earthly term. It seems we somehow find a way to replenish our stock of veterans by the time the previous generation recedes into history. Meanwhile, the Remembrance Day honours that this country bestows on those who risk their lives in service of country dwindle and fade by the time Nov. 12 rolls around, and remain out-of-mind until the next Nov. 11 is just a few days away. Indeed, the Remembrance Day “season” is now so short that it has become almost entirely occluded by the Christmas season. That’s especially ironic when we consider the limited goodwill and appreciation that we bestow on those who earned it at such a dear price – the willingness to sacrifice their very lives for the greater good of all. Our chintzy government – after making the decision to send them into harm’s way – has replaced barely adequate pensions with even less adequate pay-outs. Report after report outlines poor housing and other amenities that veterans are forced to endure. These people – our veterans who have risked all for us and our affluent way of life – deserve more than a few honourable words one day a year. Lest we forget. – B.G.

Neighbours oppose density

Dear Editor, A significant number of residents from my neighbourhood attended a public hearing on Oct. 21 to express concerns over rezoning of 20466 93A Ave. from quarter-acre lots to six

lots per acre. By petition, more than 70 people expressed their disapproval. Many of them spoke on Oct. 21 to encourage council to reject the application. When they met on Oct.

Fort Langley

OCP allows suites

Letters to the

Dear Editor, Surely, Mr. Jackson [Needs beyond group’s self-interest, Nov. 5 Letters, Langley Advance] is aware that there could still be a wonderful Coulter Berry building with several suites for the disabled, if said building was built to conform to the Official Community Plan and the Heritage Guidelines, like every other new building. Without the third storey there might be enough parking, as well. “Self-interest” does not describe the people and volunteer societies that support the heritage values, but only describes the developer who will gain financially in the long run. Bays Blackhall, Langley



Key return points to honesty

Dear Editor, I would like to thank the lovely lady who found and returned my car keys at Langley Walmart. I hadn’t even realized I had dropped them. She took the initiative to contact the dealership to get my name so she could have me paged in the store. I would also like to thank the staff at Jonker for their help. It’s nice to know we have such honest and helpful people in Langley. I tried to “pay it forward” later that day by helping a lady who was having trouble getting her groceries to her car. May Barnard, Langley

28, six of the eight councillors clearly supported my community’s request to maintain quarter-acre lots. Unfortunately the matter was not put to a vote, but has been referred to the planning department for work with the proponents to review the potential of altering the plan to five lots instead of six. My family is disappointed with this outcome. The vitality of a community is dependent on, amongst other things, its variety of homes, businesses, population, green space, and wildlife. My area of Walnut Grove is zoned for quarter-acre lots. My neighbourhood’s preference to maintain these lot dimensions has been clearly heard and agreed with by a majority of council. The danger of allowing five lots on the acre parcel will set a precedent that would ultimately impact a larger area of Walnut Grove, cause environmental damage to Yorkson Creek, further reduce old growth forest, and reduce the diversity of my neighbourhood. I hope the planners agree with me and recommend quarter-acre lots. Tina Duke, Walnut Grove

Zombie Walk

Open discussion helps clear the air

Dear Editor, I was happy to see that the Langley Advance was willing to put all the letters [Front page photos horrifying, et al, Oct. 29 Letters, Langley Advance] on display of those who seem to think that it’s creating some “world of violence” as per the event put on by Fort Langley Studios [Zombie alert!, Oct. 22, Langley Advance]. And it was a nice thing

to do, putting up rebuttals [Negative reaction surprising et al, Oct. 31 Letters, Langley Advance]. Suffice to say, I’ll add my voice to the rebuttals, if I may be allowed to. My daughter is working in the field of make-up, and has contributed to similar events for Halloween around the Lower Mainland, and I couldn’t be prouder of her. She’s very talented, and the art she creates is no less

Zombie Walk

FX specialist enjoyed event

Dear Editor, In the recent Zombie Walk organized by the Fort Langley Studio, I participated in a group of costumed locals who shambled about the streets of Fort Langley. It was my fifth Z-Walk, and I was very excited to walk the streets of a town with such a rich heritage. I have a great interest invested in special effects makeup, and the Zombie Walk always affords me the chance to do something I love. One of the best parts is the number of people who show up to watch, and I was so amazed by how many people asked for pictures. Imagine how shocked I was to hear that there were some people outraged by the event. I can understand these views, but it was far from a celebration of death for me. I cannot speak for the other zombie participants, but for me, it is a celebration of something I love (Special FX) and interacting with members of my community. It is my own celebration of the fantastical fictional monster, the Zombie. Michelle Lysohirka, Langley [Note: A fuller version is online at Click on Opinion, or search the writer’s name.]

valid than any others. This is harmless escapism and scary fun. That’s it, people. There’s no need to worry about terrible images of corpses and bleeding violence images of the dead rising or corpses rising. To remove, delete, or censor such things might set a dangerous precedent, after all. If it is going to cause alarm, aren’t there children and adults, alike, being exposed to the images of executed saints, prophets, and central figures that are worshipped, which are very graphic, with bleeding hands, feet, and thorny crowns? The one I’m discussing, I’m sure we’re aware of, did rise from the grave, according to legend, and is often referred to as having been “real,” which to be fair, may or may not be true. Divine or not is up to the person reading the story. To each their own. And to each, their own time on the front page, yes? That seems fair. Otherwise, it’s hypocritical to think that how one spends their free time is better than another person’s, especially when no laws are being broken. Jeff Munroe, Langley

Not everyone can turn on a tap in their homes and have fresh, safe drinking water come out. Walnut Grove Secondary students got to learn what it’s like to have to haul large quantities of water during an obstacle course at World Food Day activities earlier this month. Students brought together global water issues, World Food Day and participated in the Me to We event in Vancouver over the four-day span of events Oct. 15-18. From Oct. 15-17 Walnut Grove Secondary hosted speakers in classrooms and informational booths dotted the main foyer and hallways, including groups like BC Hydro, Hope International, Rotary, the Township of Langley and Food for Famine, to name a few.

Ken Hoff/SD35

The Walnut Grove Secondary School Gator mascot took part in the student challenge. Speaker topics included invasive fish species and water initiatives in impoverished countries. Students also organized assemblies with a ‘Walking for Water’ simulation that had students overcoming obstacles to simulate the hardships some people, often children, endure to obtain water for their families. The event was ‘student driven’ with the help of teachers Julia BryantTaneda and Bruce Young. It’s hoped the students take up the mantle and the effort spreads to more schools.

World Food Day at Walnut Grove Secondary included young people learning about how many people in other countries must haul water long distances to survive.

TWU presents post-war lessons An exhibition in conjunction with France and Germany offers insights about overcoming rivalry obstacles. by Ronda Payne

France and Germany were once bitter rivals with no plausible hope for a positive outcome for the relationship. Then, 50 years ago, the Elysée Treaty came about as the foundation for a new relationship. Trinity Western University (TWU) presents Friendship, Hope and Reconciliation: Lessons from PostWar Europe from Nov. 8 to 23 to share the lessons with Canadians. Together with the French and German Consulates, TWU opens the celebration to the public to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the signing of the treaty. Complete with a visual exhibition, public lecture, and a film screening with a panel discussion, participants will see how these rivals overcame their centuries old conflict.


Established in 1963 by Charles de Gaulle of France and Konrad Adenauer of Germany, the Elysée Treaty provided a foundation for a new relationship between the two nations, which, for centuries, had been bitter rivals. The visual exhibition is a series of 26 feature boards with photos, reproductions of documents, quotes and information that track the evolution of the Franco-German cooperation leading to the Elysée Treaty. The visual exhibition is open Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Nov. 8 to 23 in the President’s Gallery on the second floor of the Reimer Student Centre at TWU. “It’s encouraging to look at history and see that reconciliation,

which is a biblical principle, is possible,” said Dean of the faculty of humanities and social sciences, Bob Burkinshaw, Ph.D. A public lecture, Lessons from Post War Europe: French-German Friendship as an Example for Reconciliation, Peace and Hope will be held on Nov. 14 at 1:10 p.m. in the Northwest Building auditorium at TWU. In the lecture, attendees will learn about Charles de Gaulle of France who invited Konrad Adenauer of Germany into his home at the beginning of the peace talks. The two leaders, and enemies, discussed ideas of how to establish peace for their nations while sitting at the kitchen table. The Elysée Treaty, signed on Jan. 22, 1963, is also known as the Treaty of Friendship. The film, Merry Christmas: The True Story of an Amazing Truce in the Midst of WWI will be shown on Nov. 21 with a panel discussion following the showing at 7 p.m. in the Northwest Building auditorium of TWU. Local high school student will have tours of the exhibit.


Porsche dealership parks in Langley by Heather Colpitts

Even before workers begin constructing the Porsche Langley dealership in the luxury auto mall, there’s more brands making Langley home. Open Road Auto Group CEO Christian Chia was in Langley for the Porsche groundbreaking ceremony on Oct. 25. The dealership is slated to open in late 2014. The luxury auto mall includes BMW, Audi and Infiniti. And by 2015, Land Rover/Jaguar will join them. “We didn’t anticipate the demand and the interest that auto makers have,” Chia told the Langley Advance. He said there’s still room on the site after the addition of Porsche and Land Rover/Jaguar. Other dealerships are expected to build there and he said there may be some automotive-related businesses setting up on site as well. The auto mall started a couple of years ago at the height of the global financial crisis but that didn’t seem to hinder the successes. “I think it’s been better than we had envisioned,” he said. Within the first year for BMW, it became apparent that the service area was too small, for example. Chia noted that the City’s openness to business was a key factor in locating the auto mall here.

“The development permit was received, processed and approved in 13 days,” Chia said. “That’s true Porsche-like performance.” Alexander Pollich, the head of Porsche Cars Canada, said that it typically takes more like 13 months to get through such a process. “The 13 days keeps circling in my mind,” he commented. It’s not B.C.’s first Porsche dealership. There are others located in Victoria and Vancouver. The auto mall is intended to take advantage of the population trends with South of the Fraser communities experiencing the most growth in the recent past and into the future. Porsche has seen a 24 per cent increase in sales over the previous year and

In addition to Porsche, the luxury auto mall includes BMW/Smart, Infiniti and Audi, and soon Land Rover/ Jaguar will build a dealership there. Heather Colpitts/Langley Advance

is on track for more record setting sales. “When it came to locating a dealership, we looked no further than Langley,” Chia noted. The initial plans for the auto mall called for five dealerships ringing the back of the site at Glover Road and the Langley Bypass with a mixed use

retail/commercial development at the front corner. Chia told the Advance that the plans have had to change. The mixed use plans have gone by the wayside. Langley City acting mayor Ted Schaffer noted that the site is Canada’s “first and only luxury auto mall.”

Langley-shot fright flick promises to be a real jolt by Troy Landreville


ith the indie horror flick Bind, Langley filmmaker Dan Walton isn’t just pushing boundaries; he’s hacking through them with a machete. That’s the effect Walton is aiming for with the 96-minute film that has a release date of March 23, 2014. The plot: A family moves into an abandoned orphanage and soon learns that their “charming” new home has a disturbing history. They’re convinced they aren’t alone. “They find something that’s pretty freaky,” divulged Walton, director and executive producer of the film. With Bind, Walton and co-director Dan Zachary are looking to push the envelope in territories that others might fear to tread. “Some of the source material could be considered taboo by the population at large. Instead of playing it safe, like most would do on a first, or even a second film, we decided to go all out and make our mark by doing it right the first time around,” Walton said. “This way, it’s a memorable experience for all those involved who worked on the film and for the overall viewing audience.” Close to nothing is taboo to Walton, 36, and 40-year-old Zachary, who filmed a portion of the movie at Jori Black’s home in the Otter area. Black and Walton are childhood friends. Filming on the first day of the shoot was done in Black’s detached shop, where some rather “depraved” fictional acts were committed. “On the first night, a guy used a drill and a blowtorch…,” Walton said. “…on a dude’s head,” Zachary added, finishing the sentence. “We went full out on it because my dad is a mechanic and we went back to the old ’80s look,” Walton said. “I haven’t seen anybody with a welding mask in a long time. I thought the whole welding

mask character was pretty creepy.” Walton pored over 62 scripts and says this one “just stuck.” he exterior of the “orphanage” is the BC Electric Railway building, a structure Walton was fascinated by as a kid growing up in Aldergrove. When he was about 13 years old, Walton walked along the railroad tracks past the building and thought to himself, “I would love to film a movie there, one day.” About a year ago, he drove by the building again and decided he would use it as a backdrop for the movie. All of the filming at the former electrical building features exterior shots. “We shot [at the building] last year, and killed all sorts of kids there,” Walton said, between drags of a cigarette during a break in filming at Black’s home on Oct. 26. View “We really pulled no video punches on this one. with I don’t think any other film would actually or kill kids – I’m the only online one.” If you want to see a dog chopped up with a lawnmower, “I’m that guy,” Walton said.

He noted that each year, there seems to be a new horror film de jour, ranging from slasher, to paranormal, to ghost stories. “I just said, ‘Why don’t we grab all 10 years and just put them all in one?’” Walton related. He utilized social media, Facebook to be exact, for feedback, with the question, “What are the best killings that people enjoy?” “I grabbed everybody’s comments and I put

them all in this movie,” Walton said. “I listened to the fans instead of myself on this one.” achary and Walton have worked together before, on the 2011 short film Prophet, created through the Vancouver Film School. “I re-edited the script for them, and they loved it and they brought me on and we won an Impact Award for short film,” Walton said of the 10-minute motion picture. Walton has an ambitious goal of seeing his newest creation played on big screens around the world. “That’s pretty much what I’m looking for, right now – worldwide,” Walton said. The trailer for Bind, filmed about a year ago, can be viewed on YouTube.

In Flanders Fields

Several ceremonies honour veterans

In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below.

There are many ways to show appreciation to those who served.

Abbotsford Community Winds, and Brian Zalo. There will also be a potluck luncheon in the legion that the public is welcome to participate in.

We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.

The City of Langley and the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 21 will celebrate Remembrance Day with the annual parade and ceremony. Heather Eriksen, the Branch 21 secretary, said last year’s event was well attended with 1,000 to 1,500 people in Douglas Park. “It’s a wave of people,” she said. The parade begins at 10:25 a.m. at the Langley Legion at 20570 56th Ave. From the Legion, the parade proceeds to Douglas Park. The public may take part in the walking parade, or they can assemble in the park to see the parade arrive. “There’s a protocol for the first procession,” Eriksen said. “Then we have the Scouts, Brownies, and then anyone can join in after that.” The service in Douglas Park will be at the new cenotaph site at approximately 11 a.m. The

ceremony itself consists of the formal service, two minutes of silence, a “fly-past” by the Fraser Blues out of the Langley aAirport, speeches, honouring of the veterans who died since last year’s Remembrance Day, and laying of wreaths.


A parade, Remembrance Day ceremony, and afternoon entertainment will honour veterans in Aldergrove at Legion Branch 265. The parade leaves the Salvation Army thrift store parking lot at 3110 272nd St. at 10:25 a.m. and proceeds to Fraser Highway before turning west towards the Legion, noted Madeline Roach, secretary manager of Branch 265. “It [the parade] gets to the

Legion, which is where the cenotaph is, at about 10:40 [a.m.],” Roach added. The Aldergrove Legion, at 26607 Fraser Hwy., is expecting about 1,000 people at the annual event. Roach noted a variety of veterans, service clubs, RCMP members, firefighters, Scouts, Guides, and others participate in the parade. “There’s a lot of community involvement,” she said. The ceremony at the cenotaph will include wreath laying, a service, and a “fly-past” by the Fraser Blues out of the Langley Airport. Following the ceremony, the public is invited into the Legion to take in music by the Fraser Valley Community Pipe Band, the

The Fort Langley Remembrance Day event will be much the same as last year’s, noted Warren Sommer, chairman of the Fort Langley Remembrance Day committee, complete with a trip to the Fort Langley cemetery on Glover Road. “Members of the public can join the parade at 10:20 [a.m.] from the Fort Langley Community Hall [at 9167 Glover Rd.] led by a piper,” Sommer said. Complete with veterans, members of the RCMP, firefighters and others, the parade will march to the cenotaph in the cemetery for the service. “There is limited covered seating available with priority going to veterans, seniors and people with disabilities,” Summer added. The Fraser Blues Langley Airport will conduct a “fly-past” and singing will be led by a choral group Sommer called Youth of Fort Langley. Souls of the Past, which was composed locally, will be the primary song.

Thursday, November 7, 2013 | LangleyAdvance


Services big and small …continued from A17

Sommer expects two to three thousand people to attend the Remembrance Day event which concludes with refreshments at both St. Andrew’s United church and the Parish of St. George church where the public can meet their neighbours and veterans.


Murrayville Cemetery, 21405 44th Ave., has had a cenotaph since 1921. There is no formal ceremony planned for this site but often people will attend there for low-key memorials. Between the Murrayville and Fort Langley cemeteries, there are more than 500 soldiers laid to rest.



A wide range of activities are set for the Cloverdale Remembrance Day event running from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Cloverdale Cenotaph, the Surrey Museum next door, and the Surrey Archives across the plaza. Following the ceremony at the cenotaph, visitors can go to the museum at 17710 56A Ave. where children are invited to make “peaceful crafts,” such as tissue paper poppies and thankful artwork, to commemorate the day. Thank you notes on postcards are available for everyone to create. These will be delivered to Lower Mainland veterans and their families.

Watch, listen and learn with WWII documentary videos in the museum’s theatre and the presentation of Soldier of the Horse about the Canadian Cavalry by local author Robert Mackay. Even the museum’s Textile Studio will present veteran-related activities as participants learn about a heritage loom used to rehabilitate veterans. Across the plaza at the archive, visitors are welcome to view numerous wartime documents. Both the museum and archives will offer warm beverages and cookies will be available at the museum. Admission to the museum and archive events is by donation.

Remembrance Day

Thursday, November 7, 2013 | LangleyAdvance

Honour our CANADIANS In Flanders Fields In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us whodie We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields. ~ John McCrae

Along with the staff at Ears Hearing Langley I would like to take this opportunity to remember and honour those Canadians killed and wounded serving Canada. War is unfortunately a reality in our lives today. Let us never forget the sacrifices others have made for both you and for I. Remembrance Day is not only about remembering those who have fallen but it is a time to say THANK YOU to all those who have served and are still serving today. I pray for the day that this world will have true freedom and peace. Until then continue to acknowledge and honour Remembrance Day so that the survivors and casualties will never be forgotten. — Kim Galick, Owner, Ears Hearing Langley

On Monday, November 11 at 1 11am, radio and TV signals will stop. Shops and schools, factories and farms will be still as silence sweeps across Canada like a wave. This is a time to think about war, about peace, and about those men and women who risked their lives to protect our freedom and make the world a safer place. They fought for us, for our country, and for our future. Several Remembrance Day services have been organized throughout the community and Township of Langley Council encourages residents to attend, remember, and give thanks.

Remembrance Day: Lest We Forget We must remember. If we do not, the sacrifices of those hundreds of thousands of Canadian lives will be meaningless. They died for us, for our homes, for our families, and our friends. They gave of themselves for a collection of traditions Canadians cherish, and a future we all believed in. They died for Canada. The meaning of their sacrifice and their valor rests with our collective national consciousness.

Dark days time to prepare


he next few weeks are a good opportunity to settle the garden down for winter, because all too soon, long days of rain and the busyness of Christmas will be descending on us. Raking leaves is the most usual yard work at this time. They can always be left in place as a mulch around shrubs, but it’s better for the grass to get leaves off the lawn. People with a vegetable garden can use any unused space to pile leaves within a circle of wire netting. Most deciduous leaves rot easily into leaf mould, though broadleaf maple and oak leaves can be slow. Wire netting can be quickly flattened when it’s not in use, and stored hanging on a shed wall. Winter containers are among the fun things to add to a front entrance, patio, or deck. A flowering choice that blooms for ages in white or various pinks is the winter heather (Erica carnea). It can easily be transplanted into the garden

Red hot Rivermen on course for banner year Langley has the second most points among B.C. Hockey League teams, and the team’s players aren’t the least bit surprised. by Troy Landreville


hese days, the Langley Rivermen are hovering in the British Columbia Hockey League’s highest stratosphere. This is uncharted territory for a team that has cruised just above sea-level the past two seasons. Winners of their past four games, the ’Men own a 13-51-1 record, tops in the BCHL’s Mainland Division. This is a marked improvement from the same time last year, when the Rivermen were a fairto-middling 9-8-0-3. The ’Men’s 28 points puts them alone in second in the BCHL. Only the Island Division powerhouse Powell River Kings (14-3-0-1) have accumulated more points, with 29. “It’s going well,” said forward Mitch McLain, who in his sophomore season has assumed the captaincy role. “Everyone put a good summer in and everyone comes to practice every day fired up to get going and to getting better. I’m not surprised [by the great start] at all and I’m looking forward to seeing what the next 20 games has in store.”

Langley Rivermen captain Mitch McLain leads the team in every statistical category including goals (nine), assists (17), points (26), points-per-game (1.3), and penalty minutes (34). Troy Landreville/Langley Advance

to capitalize and we’ve got to play good five-on-five. If everyone does their role and everyone buys in, we’re a hard team to play against.” The Rivermen have no shortage of sandpaper, an element newcomer Zach Urban brings every night. The hulking 6’3” 205-pound defenceman has collected three assists in 12 games with the Rivermen since being acquired from the Salmon Arm Silverbacks. Urban has championship experience. He was a member of a Penticton Vees team that captured the RBC Cup in 2012. “I think I fit in pretty good with the guys,” Urban said. “They seem to like me and I like the guys.” Urban said team toughness gives the ’Men an extra edge. “A lot of other teams can’t compete with our physical play,” he said. “I don’t see many teams that hit like our team does. We can score, too. We’ve got a lot of skilled guys. We have a pretty good team, all around.” s a hard rock defenceman with the Chilliwack Chiefs from 1998 to 2003, the Rivermen’s bench boss was no shrinking violet. Henderson racked up 872 penalty minutes in parts of five seasons with the Chiefs, averaging 174 minutes per campaign in the sin bin. “We’re still working to establish our identity, but it’s one of those things [where] it’s a culture and it’s contagious,” Henderson said, regarding team grit. “Our veterans have done a good job of leading the way in that regard.” McLain, meanwhile, leads the Rivermen in all offensive categories, with nine goals, 17 assists, and 26 points. The native of Baxter, Minn. is rapidly closing in on the 32 points he scored in a full 56 games as a BCHL rookie last season. “It’s just confidence,” said McLain, who will attend and play hockey for NCAA Div. 1 Bowling Green next season. “I’ve always thought that I could help… offensively. I came into this season and I wanted to contribute. Losing Mario and Evan Campbell, obviously we needed some offensive production and I wanted to be a leader with the offence, too.” continued on page A32…



hen you look at the standings alone, the Rivermen have improved considerably from the 2012/13 edition, which finished 24-26-1-5 and was quickly ushered out of the BCHL playoffs in the first round by the eventual league champion Surrey Eagles. Rivermen head coach Bobby

Troy Landreville/Langley Advance

Rookie defenceman Chris Forney has been a force at both ends of the ice this season with the Rivermen. The Thief River Falls, Minn. native has posted 12 points in 18 games.

Henderson said the ’Men had high expectations coming into the season. “I don’t think we’re an underdog by any means,” Henderson said. “We see every team’s best performance every night. Teams get up to play us.” The local juniors are achieving success by committee. Last year, they relied heavily on the league’s top point-getter Mario Puskarich, who ran away with the scoring title with 41 goals, 48 assists, and 89 points. With Puskarich starting his NCAA career with the University of Vermont this fall, the Rivermen are relying on secondary scoring – and offence from the back end – to make up the difference. The ’Men have 10 players with 12 points or more including McLain (26), James Robinson (16), Will Cook (16), Austin Azurdia (14), Matt Ustaski (13), Jakob Reichert (13), Nathan Craft (12), Kevan Kilistoff (12), and a pair of highly touted rookie defencemen from Minnesota, Chris Forney and Tony Bretzman with 12 each. Henderson said depth is helping to make up for the produc-

Some choices are hard.

tion lost with the departure of Puskarich and his linemate Evan Campbell, who netted 20 goals and 46 assists last season. “We’ve got capable defenders, good goaltenders, and we’re pretty opportunistic offensively, right now, so I think that’s the biggest thing,” Henderson said. “Everything’s by committee.” “I think we’re a pretty dangerous team all the way through,” McLain noted. “I think our top nine… everyone can score goals, but we’ve been playing really well on the back end too, and our goalies [have] been playing outstanding for us.” eam “D” has been another driver of the team’s success. The Rivermen have surrendered the fewest goals in the Mainland (52) and possess the greatest goals for/against differential in the division (a whopping 15 on the positive side of the ledger). “We just do our job,” McLain said. “We pride ourselves on playing physical and hard every night and sometimes we get into penalty trouble, but the penalty kill does its job. If we get chances on the powerplay we’ve got

Vitamin C and Lysine Powder Rivermen hosting Cents Saturday Help Prevent Heart Attacks T W. Gifford-Jones, MD


hy is heart attack the number one killer in this country? Ninety-nine percent of doctors say it’s due to atherosclerosis (hardening of arteries) and that cholesterol lowering drugs are the primary way to treat it. But I suggest cardiologists have closed minds and are ignoring facts that could save thousands of North Americans from coronary attack. Years later Dr. Linus Pauling, twotime Noble Prize winner, is ignored for reporting that large amounts of vitamin C and lysine are needed to prevent coronary attacks. Twenty-five years ago Pauling reported that animals make vitamin C and humans do not. That’s why sailors died of scurvy during long sea voyages, but the ship’s cat survived. Vitamin C is required to manufacture healthy collagen, the glue that holds coronary cells together, just like mortar is needed for bricks. Lysine, like steel rods in cement, makes collagen stronger. Pauling claimed it takes a mere 10 milligrams to prevent scurvy, but several thousand to prevent heart attack. Williams Stehbens, Professor of Anatomy at Wellington University in New Zealand, proved Pauling was right. Stebhens’ research showed that coronary arteries closest to the heart are under the greatest pressure. This causes collagen to fracture resulting in the formation of a blood clot and death. Dr. Sydney Bush, an English researcher, has now proved that vitamin C can reverse atherosclerosis. Bush took retinal photographs, then started his patients on high doses of vitamin C and lysine. One year later additional pictures showed atherosclerosis had regressed in retinal arteries.

C plus lysine with breakfast and the evening meal, for several reasons. I knew that Dr. Graveline, a physician and NASA astronaut, had twice developed transient global amnesia from taking Lipitor. I was also aware that patients have died from CLDs. Others have developed kidney, liver and muscle complications. I also believed the research of Pauling and Stehbens irrefutable. Now, the work of Dr. Bush has convinced me my decision was prudent. But to take large doses of vitamin C and lysine requires swallowing many pills daily. It’s a tall order for those who dislike swallowing one pill. So for several years I’ve been trying to find a company that would manufacture a combination of vitamin C and lysine powder. Now Medi-C Plus is available at health food stores. The dosage for the Medi-C Plus combination is one flat scoop with breakfast and the evening meal. Those at greater risk should take one flat scoop three times a day. If high doses cause diarrhea, the dose should be decreased. This column does not recommend that those taking CLDs should stop them. This is a decision that can only be made by patients and doctors. Most of today’s, cardiologists are impervious to persuasion. They continue to believe that cholesterollowering drugs are the be-all-and-endall to prevent heart attack. They’ve been brain-washed by millions of dollars worth of promotion by pharmaceutical companies. It reminds me of the saying that cautions “It’s not what you don’t know what gets you into trouble, it’s the things you know for sure that ain’t so!” It’s time for cardiologists to have an open mind and stop ignoring this research. As for me – I bet my life on it!

So what has happened to these monumental findings? Bush, like Semmelweiss, has been ridiculed by cardiologists. One has to ask whether cardiologists, by ignoring his results, VITAMIN C & L-LYSINE FORMULA are condemning thousands of people to Available at: an early coronary heart attack.

…continued from page A31 he Rivermen won their fourth consecutive game, and provided themselves with a tiny bit of breathing room from their divisional rivals, with a 3-2 double overtime victory over the Prince George Spruce Kings Saturday at the Langley Events Centre. Robinson’s goal at the 1:59 mark of the three-on-three double overtime period lifted the Rivermen to victory. Langley led 1-0 on Ustaski’s goal 4:35 into the opening period. The Spruce Kings rallied to take a 2-1 lead in the second frame, on goals from Jackson Waniek 1:22 into the period and Matt Iovanna 4:14 later. Ustaski’s second of the night, on a Rivermen powerplay with 2:02 to go in the middle stanza, tied the game at 2-2. The game was scoreless through the third period and first overtime session, setting up the dramatic finish. The Rivermen outshot the Spruce Kings by a hefty 35-20 margin, including 6-1 during the two overtime periods. Even with the OT loss (and the single point that comes with it) the Spruce Kings are biting at the Rivermen’s heels. With an 11-7-1-2 record, Prince George sits three points back of the Rivermen, who have a game at hand on the Spruce Kings.

Up next…


he season continues Friday when the Rivermen visit Merritt’s Nicola Valley Arena to play the 12-9-1 Centennials. The ’Men and Cents resume acquaintances Saturday at the LEC, in the second half of their home and home series. Game time is 7:15 p.m. The team is back on the ice on Remembrance Day (Monday, Nov. 11),

with a matinee match-up against the Surrey Eagles. Opening puck drop at South Surrey Arena is 2 p.m. Looking ahead to this weekend and the rest of the season, Henderson said the Rivermen are taking it game-by-game. “It’s like shampoo and conditioner,” he said. “It’s rinse and repeat. Kinda take what worked from the last game and carry it over into the next game and pick up where you left off.”

Vlanich joins ’Men


he ’Men recently announced the signing of 20-year-old forward Jamie Vlanich. The Trail native put up impressive numbers with the Nelson Leafs. With 12 goals and 37 points, he was the top scorer in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League (KIJHL). “I’m really excited to be a part of the Rivermen and to start contributing on the scoreboard,” Vlanich said. “Obviously the team’s been doing great and I’m looking forward to adding to the progress that they have made already in what is going to be a successful season and hopefully a long playoff run.” Listed at 5’9” and 160 pounds, Vlanich has 147 points in 130 career KIJHL games with Golden, Castlegar, Fernie, and Nelson. He also spent the 2011/12 season as a member of the SJHL’s Yorkton Terriers, amassing nine goals and 26 points in 44 games. The Rivermen believe Vlanich will give them some more veteran experience and playmaking ability up front. He picked up an assist in his first game with the Rivermen, a 4-3 road win over the Chilliwack Chiefs last Wednesday, Oct. 30, and was held off the scoresheet Saturday against the Spruce Kings.

HAFI adapts homes for B.C. seniors and people with disabilities Brenda has always been an active woman. However, recent health issues including osteoarthritis in her left knee and losing kidney function have slowed her down. Her mobility is limited and she is now on dialysis three days a week. To adjust to her changed circumstances, Brenda sought help with her daily living activities. Part of that help came from the Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) program offered through BC Housing. Launched in January 2012, the HAFI program provides financial assistance to help eligible low-income seniors and people with disabilities adapt their homes so they can continue to live independently. Brenda applied for a new walk-in bathtub because she couldn’t safely get out of the tub on her own. Walk-in tubs include additional safety measures such as anti-slip floors, grab bars, and a very low step in. Home adaptations may also include handrails in halls or stairs, ramps for




easier access, easy-to-reach work and storage areas in the kitchen, lever handles on doors or faucets, walk-in showers, and bathtub grab bars and seats. Brenda is a strong advocate for the program and has even shared HAFI brochures with nurses in the renal unit where she undergoes dialysis. If you or someone you know is having difficulty performing day-to-day activities safely and independently – the HAFI program may be able to help.

Bantam Bears run over Niners Spartans tip off

North Langley quite literally ground out a win over the Mission Niners last weekend.

The North Langley bantam Bears finished the season with an 8-2 record after a convincing 34-12 victory over the Mission Niners in Valley Community Football League action Saturday afternoon. With strong winds and rain resulting in very poor field conditions, both teams were forced to rely heavily on their ground game. Pablo Wigwigan was once again the primary offensive

threat for North Langley, gaining more than 200 yards on just 11 carries while scoring three touchdowns. Bears quarterback Jacob Stebbings also had a big day, running for 89 yards and scoring two touchdowns of his own. Charlie May successfully kicked two converts to round out the North Langley scoring. On defence Damon Limoges turned in a strong performance with several key tackles as well as forcing a fumble late in the game. Reid MacTaggart recovered two fumbles. The Bears head into the playoffs this Saturday at home against the Abbotsford White Falcons.

season with split TWU can build from its weekend split, which included its first ever victory over Calgary.

North Langley Bears running back Pablo Wigwigan wriggled free from a Mission tackler on his way to one of his three touchdowns Saturday.

The Trinity Western University women’s basketball team was only able to muster 27 second half points, and that proved to be its undoing as the Spartans lost 76-65 to Lethbridge Saturday at the Langley Events Centre. The Pronghorns’ Kim Veldman put on an impressive show as she led Lethbridge with 30 points and 16 rebounds, guiding Lethbridge (now 1-1) to its first victory of the season. TWU (which fell to 1-1) forced Lethbridge into 29 turnovers, but was held to just 31.3 per cent shooting during the second half and, in the end, the Spartans were outscored 41-27 over the final 20 minutes. After TWU’s Luca Schmidt knocked down a fourth quarter three-pointer to get TWU to within one point, at 62-61, the Pronghorns responded with a 14-4 run to close out the game and nab the win. The Spartans’ Holly Strom led TWU with 20 points, however 18 of those came in the first half. Beyond Strom, the Spartans’ Schmidt had 11 points while Janelle Traber and Laurissa Weigl each had nine points. Strom also had a team-high seven rebounds. After Veldman, it was Sara Simovic and Katlyn Olsen contributing 15 points each for Lethbridge. Simovic also had seven rebounds. “To be honest, we’re only going to be as prepared as I prepare the team, so if we play unprepared, that’s on me as a coach,” said Spartans coach Cheryl JeanPaul. “There are definitely some things that we have to work through, but I thought Veldman had a great game and slowing someone like her is something we are going to have to work on.” Lethbridge, which shot 61.3 per cent from the field in the first stanza, took a six-point lead (22-16) into the second quarter. Down 35-30 the Spartans scored eight straight points to end the half up 38-35. Strom finished the half with 18 points while Lethbridge’s Veldman had a team-high 12 for the Pronghorns. The Pronghorns possessed the lead for much of the final 10 minutes, but the Spartans kept pushing and remained within striking distance down the stretch. But after a Schmidt three-pointer made it a one-point game, at 62-61, Lethbridge tallied six straight points, with a Sara Simovic lay-up capping the run to put the Pronghorns up by seven. The Spartans never got closer than five points as Lethbridge cruised to the victory.

Drought ends

On a positive note, Jean-Paul pointed out that to get a weekend split was “a positive sign for us.” The night before at the LEC, the Spartans earned their first ever win over Calgary, winning 66-58. “I don’t know if I would have predicted it being this split, but we’ll take it,” she said. Prior to Friday, the Spartans had gone 0-17 against the Dinos, but thanks in large part to a 20-point and seven-rebound effort from Strom, TWU got the win it had been seeking since entering the CIS in 1999. The closest the Spartans have ever come to a win over Calgary was in 2003 when they lost in overtime. The win also marked TWU’s first season-opening victory since 2001, when the Spartans beat UBC. After trailing 11-8 following the first quarter, TWU went on a 10-1 run early in the second to give the Spartans an 18-12 lead and from there, they led the rest of the way. Along with Strom, Traber added 20 points and five steals while Weigl had 14 points, a game-high 11 rebounds, and four steals. “I am just so proud of this group of girls,” JeanPaul said, following the historic victory. “They have been working so hard since the beginning of August and this is just the beginning of the fruits of their labour. I thought everyone came in and were dialed in and it was a great team win.” The Spartans return to the court Nov. 8-9 when they will travel to play UBC to play the Thunderbirds.

TWU ran into a brick wall in the form of the defending BCIHL champion Selkirk Saints.

Nine swimming events over two days: that’s one tall task for a large team of 11 & over Langley Olympians who travelled to the UBC Aquatic Centre in Vancouver for the 2013 VPSC Invitational Meet late last month.

The Trinity Western University men’s hockey team saw its four-game winning streak snapped in emphatic fashion Saturday at the Castlegar Recreation Centre. The defending B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League champion Selkirk Saints scored two goals in each period while outshooting TWU 53-23 in a 6-0 win. The Saints bounced back from a pair of losses last weekend against Thompson Rivers and Simon Fraser. Darnell Dyck notched a hat-trick to lead Selkirk while Cody Fidgett added two goals and Mason Spear had one. Spartans goalie Harry Fredeman stopped 47 of the 53 shots he faced while Selkirk netminder Chris Hurry earned his second shutout of the year with a 23-save effort. The Saints and Spartans now have identical 5-2 records and are tied with Simon Fraser for top spot in the BCIHL with 10 points apiece. Still unbeaten Simon “They were ready and Fraser (5-0), however, has dialed up and they two games in hand. “They’re a very well-precame in tonight and pared and tenacious team,” played with incredible Spartans coach Barret speed and really Kropf said, following the loss. “They were ready and overwhelmed us.” dialed up and they came Barret Kropf in tonight and played with incredible speed and really overwhelmed us. Our guys battled and competed, but their depth is right through all four lines and we have to find a way to get a little bit more depth on our third and fourth lines.” Kropf added, “For the most part, they were the better team tonight. I don’t think anyone in our league could have skated with them tonight. They were so determined. They also did a great job of matching with JP Villeneuve’s line and corralled the speed and offensive threat that that line is usually able to bring.” The Spartans and Saints are right back at it this weekend as Selkirk will travel to the Langley Events Centre for games on Friday night at 7 p.m. and Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. “We’re pretty happy to come home from a road trip like this with a split [having beaten Eastern Washington Friday],” Kropf said. “Hopefully next weekend we can turn the tables a bit and get more offensive chances from other lines, so Selkirk can’t just key on one line.” • More at

The Cavalier Kind May Globus

After being buzzed into the jewellery shop in the historic Dominion Building, it’s clear that Cavalier is in a league of its own. Not only is the space beautiful with its tall ceilings, brick and wood, Cavalier is also community-minded, exclusively carrying pieces from local independent designers. Whether more contemporary or traditional in look, high quality materials, precious gemstones and good design makes each work sold here timeless. Classic German-made NIRVEL wristwatches (from $500) run on Swiss mechanics, while the Contoli watches (from $750) are handcrafted just up the street. The ZULA Jewlery + Design leaf print medium necklace ($110) is for those with a penchant for the delicate and feminine, much in contrast to the bronze rock and roll signet-style LACAR skull ring ($146).

The New Family Heirlooms May Globus

New in The Chinatown Experiment’s pop-up space, Izm’s moniker represents a movement focused on existence, essential nature and how one should live, a philosophy that seems inherently West Coast. Clean lines constructed from solid wood are the design foundation and, despite a contemporary minimalist aesthetic, there’s still a delightfully rustic air about the high-end handcrafted pieces, each meant to age and to be passed on between generations. What we wouldn’t give to have the Visualizm cabinet (from $4,650) and Eyeful coffee table ($2,950) accenting our living rooms — that, or the quirky air plant terrariums (from $50) by Gastown florist Green Stems. By the looks of it, beautiful furniture is new family heirloom. Izm, 434 Columbia St., Vancouver,
